my favorite play in the city

Sebastian Morgenstern

I both love and hate Sebastian Morgenstern. He is my favorite villain because of how messed up he is. Now, as messed up as he is it isn’t his fault. If you think about it, he would have been a normal person if Valentine didn’t experiment on him.
Will killed the role as Sebastian in the show. He’s so good at making him seem just as psychotic in the show as he is on the books. Not only that but he plays both Sebastian Verlec and Jonathan Morgenstern as two different people like they are. His acting is amazing and people were worried about him playing such a psychotic role because of how sweet Will is but honestly I couldn’t see anyone else as Sebastian.

The funniest part about this college gameday was seeing all the crusty blue jean wearing, ByGaw Footbaw types pissing their pants because a pop star was ruining the sanctity of College Gameday, a show that’s known for 

1. A by now ten minute Big and Rich College Football version of Comin’ To Your City that swear to god features not one but two rappin’ country guys. (My favorite part actually)

2. Being live outside the Game of the Week’s home stadium, where students congregate, bring hokey signs, and boo everytime someone says the words Brian Kelly.

3. A bloated panel that features like eight ex-players who couldn’t play on Sunday.

4. Making excuses for not paying players.

5. Uh oh Lee Corso’s doing his old man thing again, let’s hope he doesn’t veer into anything racist or sexist.

6. Hip guest stars!

7. Lee Corso putting on a mascot head which actually is also probably my favorite part especially when it’s the mountaineers or Cowboys because some asshole gives this guy a weapon and the rest of the panel ducks for cover.

Like, yeah, Perry seemed like she schnocked a bunch of adderall before coming on the show, but that’s what made it so much fun. Most of their guest stars aren’t… camera ready. They just slump into their microphone and say “Waaaail, Kirk, I lak Mizzurri in this one.” Perry looked like she was going to explode glitter the entire time. Also it’s the like, only College Gameday I remember.

My new manager fired me. I fired his store.

This happened about 6 years ago.

I worked at (store that sells donuts that you may or may not dunk) that was in a somewhat far off location from the rest of the city in a relatively new shopping center. I was there when the store opened, and we never really got much traffic, but there was two large car clubs that came out twice a week to meet, and chat, and generally bring our store a lot of traffic. We were told that the clubs pretty much keeps the store afloat.

I worked there for a long while, and my manager was awesome. She did a great job of keeping everything stocked, gave out hours to people who actually worked their ass off instead of playing favorites, and she was never unfair about warnings or suspensions.

One day, she got seriously ill and had to quit. I never knew the details, but it was serious enough for her to quit her job. Then comes Swagger McA**hole, our new manager. Now, Swagger McA**hole had all the charm and wit of a rabid chihuahua. He was a generally angry man, and thought himself to be above everyone else in the store. He popped the collars of his button up shirt like he was going to bring that trend back from the dead. Needless to say, Swagger McA**hole wasn’t well liked.

He fired and replaced people left and right for usually petty or outright wrong reasons, and I was the last one standing, because for some reason, I was always asked to make the regular’s coffee, because I would remember their names, what they wanted, and how they liked it, and I usually had it in the process of being made as soon as I saw them walking up to the door. The car clubs knew me by name.

Enter Hannah Handjob. She started hanging around the store. A lot. Swagger McA**hole and Hannah Handjob would often hang out in the Manager’s office, sometimes with the door closed. Like we didn’t know what the fuck they were doing. A short while later, I find myself fired for some bullshit reason. I think what was written on my exit paperwork (which I refused to sign) was “wasting inventory”, whatever the fuck that meant.

Sorry for the long backstory. Here comes the revenge part. Remember those car clubs I talked about? I found their website and message boards, and told them my story. They told me how incredibly shitty they thought it all was, and always thought Swagger McA**hole was a poor replacement for our old manager. Both the clubs agreed to find a different venue for their morning to late afternoon meetups.

That was the death knell for that location. Three months later, I go back to turn in my uniforms, because I’m sick of looking at them in my closet, and they’re all closed up. I don’t know for sure that I had anything to do with their closing, but I’m at least 80% sure the car clubs were keeping them afloat.

Adam West (R.I.P 1928-2017)
The legendary man known for playing superheroes like The Fearless Ferret, Catman, Captain Super Captain, and the most iconic hero, Batman (‘66) has passed away at 88.

This guy was one of my favorite actors. He made me laugh many times for playing delusional superhero/ TV actors, showed great drama when playing a serious ‘batman’ character, and was the weirdest mayor in history!

The superhero world will feel a little bit empty without him, and he will never be forgotten by any of us. Rest in Peace and fight on, West. 🙍🙇🌃

Tom Holland Imagine: Comic Con

Summary: You and Tom meet at Comic Con while you’re both promoting your new movies

A/N: I saw The Lost City of Z today and almost died because it was so good. It’s literally my favorite book of all time and when I found out Tom was going to play Jack is almost cried.

Warnings: none

————————————————

Tom and the rest of the Spider-Man: Homecoming cast were in the middle of an interview when she first caught his eye. She was dressed in a blue floral dress when he saw her. Tom tried to keep his focus on answering the questions but his attention kept diverting to her smile. Her smile was the most enchanting smile he had ever seen and she had the most kind eyes of anyone he had ever met.

She was crouched next to a little girl and appeared to be singing. Although Tom couldn’t hear her, he knew she had to have the voice of an angel.

“So, Tom, got your eye on anyone?”

Tom snapped his head back over to the interviewer who was smiling at him.

Tom stayed quiet for a moment as he looked at Zendaya for help who simply giggled at the boy in distress.

“Um, I-uh… I don’t know. There’s one girl who I recently saw and thought was beautiful. But I haven’t had the chance to introduce myself to her yet…”

Tom could feel his cheeks heating up as the rest of the cast ooo'ed at his response.

Tom looked up to Harrison who was smirking at him.

Tom turned his gaze back to look for her, but she was gone. Tom felt like he was going to have a panic attack if he didn’t find her soon.

Luckily for him, the interview ended and he had 1 hour before their panel started. 1 hour to find the mystery girl.

Tom frantically looked around the mountains of people for the dark haired girl in the light blue floral dress. Tom prayed to whatever god was up there that he would find her and find her soon.

Tom was abducted from his prayers by a familiar voice calling his name.

He turned his head to see friendly blue eyes looking back him.

“Hey, kid. It’s been a while.” Sebastian said as he smiled sweetly at Tom.

Although they joked about having a rivalry, they were actually quite fond of each other.

“Oh, hey Seb. Sorry, I just saw this girl earlier and I’m trying to find her.”

“Oh? What’d she look like?”

“Ummm… dark hair, kind eyes, beautiful smile, she was wearing a light blue dress with yellow, black and white flowers on it.”

“I think I know who you’re talking about. Her name’s Y/N. She’s the voice of the new Disney princess. She’s probably in the break room, honestly. Or maybe try and find her booth?”

Tom nodded and took off towards the break room.

“Okay, bye, I guess…” Sebastian mumbled as he watched the lovesick boy run away from him.

Tom could hear people yelling his name for pictures, but he ignored all of them. He felt horrible for neglecting his fans, but he had to find her.

Tom finally reached the break room and saw the same beautiful smile from before as she read from a book of fairytales.

Everything felt like slow motion for Tom as he approached where she was sitting.

Tom had normally been good at talking to girls, but as soon as her e/c eyes met his, he felt hopeless.

His throat ran dry and he could hear his heart pounding in his chest while his stomach did cartwheels inside of him. He felt like he was no longer in reality, but placed in a fictional world of romance like in the movies his mom always watches.

Tom suddenly become aware of how much time had passed of him staring when he noticed her smile beginning to drop.

“Hi? Can I help you with something?”

And that was it. Hearing her voice. Her voice was as smooth as velvet and as beautiful as a sunset over an ocean.

Tom swallowed the lump in his voice and counted to three before blurting out a hello.

The beautiful smile returned to her face as she greeted him once again.

Tom’s cheeks heated up again.

“I’m Tom. I uh, I saw you earlier and I-I just, um-”

“He thinks you’re really pretty!”

Tom whipped around to see Sebastian standing at the door smirking, obviously enjoying the torture that the poor boy was in.

“Oh… is that true?”

Tom turned back to look at Y/N with wide eyes. He slowly nodded and felt his cheeks grow warmer if that was even possible.

Y/N smiled up at him before grabbing a notepad from the tables and a pen.

“Well, if that’s the case, maybe when you learn how to speak properly, you can give me a call.”

Y/N handed Tom the piece of paper that contained her phone number.

Tom smile brightly at Y/N before he heard them calling for the Spider-Man Cast to head to their panel.

“Maybe after this is over, I can take you to dinner? Would that be okay?”

“That sounds perfect.”

How to make a functional school without mod (V2.0.)

A few months ago I’ve made an article about how to have a functional school without mod. I’ll do it again with more indications and tips from my gameplay experience. While you’re reading this, keep in mind the game has an usual limitation of 20 sims per community lot for performance purpose. If you want more students in your school, you’ll need mods. As a cc-free player, I don’t use these so I’ll just show you my way.

First of all, you’ll need to create groups of pupils with an age restriction (>> for kids only). The best option is to create up to 4 groups with 6 kids in each. I encourage you to pick group leaders from different households. If you don’t, you decrease your chance to have groups showing up while you’re playing… Except if all the leaders are in the household you want to play with. But when kids turn into teens, the leadership goes most likely to a younger relative (siblings, cousins…), so please don’t forget that.

The reason why you better chose leaders from different households is because the game system works on rotation : not the same households are “active” during your game. Also, do not put all the siblings in the same group if you’re not controling it. There’s high chance none of them show up to make room for others. So if you have triplets, place them in 2 or 3 differents groups ! Same for twins or cousins who live at the same place :)

When you’ve chose the leaders, add 5 kids in their group. You must pick for them a favorite location : chose the school you’ve downloaded.

Now, time to assign them tasks. Pick wisely: you only have 5 options. Know that the order you put them is important ! First task is the one they’ll do automatically ; Second task is the one they’ll most likely do ; Third task is the one they’ll do during breaks ; Fourth task is the one they’ll do if there’s too much other sims somewhere ; Fifth task is what they’ll do if they do not have other choices. And last but not least, the group will behave the way the community lot is set up if they don’t have any options left.

For example, if in your school there’s no jungle gym and your first task is to play with playground equipements, the kids group will try to play with toys (if it’s your task number 2). If there’s no toys left, they’ll try to chose option 3, and then option 4 etc. The group system works like a staircases.

Because you’ve made 4 groups and there’s 4 aspirations for kids (now), chose tasks according to this. Make a “creativity” group, a “social” group, a “motor” group and a “mental” group. In my game, all the groups have something in common (task 2 : do their homework). And the other tasks are “custom” for each. This way, kids won’t go in the same room instantly but walk around and do different stuff.

Task suggestions :

  • Mental group : 1. Play with computer. 2. Do homework. 3….
  • Social group : 1. Be nice to… 2. Do homework. 3…
  • Creativity group : 1. Paint. 2. Do homework. 3….
  • Motor group : 1. Play with playground equipements. 2. Do homework….

Because my school is set as a library, all the groups can possibly chose to read and browse the web. The option 5 can be a task opposite to their trait, for example the creativity group can play basketball. There’s multiple way to do it so go with your flow !

You can also set up group for teachers (up to 3, max). Assign them the school as their favorite location and tasks. If you have City Living EP, chose “make speech” as an option. A few kids will actuall listen to them ;)

If you want to go extra, you can also make a cook group (up to 2, max), assigned them uniforms, the school as favorite location and task (cook / clean). Chose sims with low cooking skill so they can do basic reciepes and not gourmet meals. ;) Same for a janitor (you can make a group of only 1 sims !). 

With all that, everytime you load your game you’ve really high chances to meet pupils, teachers and cooks, janitor. Since I’ve create this system I always have people in my school and everything works smooth ! Keep in mind that random townies can still show up in your school (because it’s a library, you know…) but they’ll leave if more groups come, to make room for them. 

Notes :

  • A kid can be in multiple groups (ex. motor + creativity). You won’t get any negative effects. His/her chance to actually show up is only higher than others kids.
  • If the cook team don’t show up and you still want your sims to eat for a possible lunch break : click on the hoven’s kitchen and call for a caterer. He or she will usually make up to 3 or 4 differents group meals. Put each plates on different lunch tables and call to meal. All the groups should pick a plate, sit and chat to each others. The only “bad” effect with the caterer option, is that they’ll most likely make gourmet meals…
  • You can chose an option to make cooks shout at children faces. Go to social >> Be mean to… >> Chose a group or a life state.
  • To increase your chance of groups interacting, make the option 4 “be nice to / be funny to / be mean to… >> this group”
  • Adult can automatically teach kids some skill (piano, violin, painting, basketball etc.) if they see kids use these objects. For this, your adult need to be level 10. If your teachers have 10 at one skill, they’ll most likeky try to teach to a kid something…
  • If you want them to be in a private school, assigned them a uniform. Please, note that the sims need to be in their everyday wear to turn into their uniform clothes. They can “lose” their uniform if they turn into their sport wears (for example, if they use the basketball hoop). If so, go talk to them and chose the interaction : “show me your… >> everyday outfits” Then the sims will get his uniform back.
  • To go further… You have the possibility to make smaller group for extra activities like drawing, basketball etc. and assigned them uniforms, lock the doors and only them will go there.
  • If you want to avoid townies break in during class, put all the computers somewhere else. Same for the bookshelves !

sitting inside one of my favorite coffee shops with one of my favorite people. it’s raining outside, my dream house is right across the street, i have ben howard playing, and i have time to simply d r e a m. it’s been a while since i’ve had the privilege of time to myself.

i’m dreaming of this house right across the street: it’s wood shake siding, brick chimney, big trees surrounding it, warm lights in the attic, and small front yard. it’s secluded while simultaneously being in the middle of the city. i dream of owning a home just like this very one; minneapolis is good at combining city living + lots of trees and lakes, so i’m thankful that that dream isn’t so unrealistic here. i dream of filling the house with a family and lots of food and laughter and love. i dream of slow sundays where the house smells like warm soup and pjs are worn all day. i dream of waking up early and walking across the street to the coffee shop i sit in right now to have a cup of coffee while i read the newspaper. i dream of flower boxes and cozy friday nights and favorite songs floating throughout the house. i dream of quiet, rainy saturday afternoons where we keep the windows open to hear + smell the rain while we read books and soft, classical music plays in the background. i dream of walking our pup through the neighborhood with friends and then having them over for dinner + wine + real conversation out in the front yard under string lights. i dream of you, of you, of you doing all of this alongside me. my heart hurts with how far i feel from you, with how far all of this dream feels. at the same time, though, my heart is hopeful for this. for you.

How to BTS would spoil you

Jin-
This boy would defitnaly spoil you by cooking a large meal for you when you got home from a difficult day at work. He would then clean up and start a warm bath with lots of bubbles and soap and minerals all to soothe and distress you. Finally at the end of the night he would pick you up bridal style and take you to the bed that he had just washed, so it was nice and warm for his queen. You to would lay together and talk until you drifted off to sleep.


Namjoon-
I fell like Namjoon would want to buy cute, and pretty things for his girlfriend. Like if you two went out and he saw you looking at a cute dress, or shoes, then he would either take you into the store to get you fitted, or wait until later to surprise you with the clothes. Then since you had this new outfit he would take you to a nice restaurant that feels very homey to show off his amazing girlfriend.

Yoongi-
Yoongi would be very separated from you for a few days which had you worrying. He was usually busy, but he would tell you everything he was doing, but now all he would tell you is “I’m working on things.” You sat by yourself once again one night watching TV when you heard a knock on the door. You got up confused because you never had visitors. When the door was opened there was a note and a bouquet of roses; The note said, “Meet me in the place that keeps me from you.” This defitnaly meant the studio, so you head there. As you walked in you heard a beautiful piano song with Yoongi singing along, as you got closer you saw candles and chocolate. When Yoongi saw you he walked to you and pulled you into a hug. “You’re my inspiration.”

Hoseok-
Hoseok being the sunshine he was would wake you up in the morning with eggs, bacon, toast, and a smile. He would tell you to get ready in cute clothes, but wouldn’t say where you to were going. He would take you to an amusement park where you two rode all the rides. Then he would take you to a open hilltop where you two had a private picnic. Then to make sure you knew you were spoiled he would take you to a pet store to pick out a “Puppy as cute as you.” As Hoseok said. When you got home he would cuddle you close and tell you how much he loves you.

Jimin-
This little mochi would be so excited to spoil you at your favorite sushi restaurant because he knew you how much you love sushi. Later that night he would take you to a drive in theater where he would the back if his truck with pillows and blankets. He would bring you close to him in an attempt to comfort you during the scary movie only to have you comfort him instead. After the movie he would act super tough while being low key scared while walking into your shared apartment, and grabbing on to your arm because of the dark. “Ohh…Ummm….I just wanted to make sure you’re OK love.” He would lie, but you thought he was so cute.

Taehyung-

This boy would most likely want to take you shopping much like Namjoon, but much more lavishly. He would take you to his favorite store, Gucci, and there you two would get matching outfits, all the way down to the sandals. Afterwards he would take you to a super fancy restaurant and let you order whatever you wanted. While you were eating he would have roses delivered to the table, along with a small orchestra ensemble to play you romantic music. “I love you so much (Y/N)!” He would blurt out blushing. “I love you to my Gucci Prince!” You would respond with a kiss on his cheek.

Jungkook-

This boy would want to spoil you by taking you to all of the arcades in the city. At first he would let you win, because he thought you would be bad at the arcade games, but when you won the jackpot on three games in a row he started to fight for victory. When you two were out of tokens, you found yourselves with handfuls of tickets that you gladly traded for a large plush Pikachu that you named Kookie. You gave Jungkook a kiss on the cheek and said, “I’m so spoiled aren’t I Kook?” Jungkook looked at you blushing and responded by saying, “Of course my beautiful princess anything for you.”

Location: KANSAS CITY PUBLIC LIBRARY
14 West 10th Street Kansas City, MO 64105

I played tourist in my own city yesterday! Being born and raised in Kansas City, I canNOT believe I’ve never been to the Public Library downtown. They have 5 BEAUTIFUL floors. The top floor has a roof top terrace, and since it used to be a bank almost 100 years ago, they turned the vault in the basement into a movie theater. You actually walk through the vault!!!! How cool is that?.

I’m not even sure where I’d begin to list all of my favorite things about the library, but I’ll start off with the parking garage. It’s called “Community Bookshelf” - It has to be THE COOLEST garage ever!!! The wall is made up of classics 25 feet tall and 9 feet wide and the stairs are books as well with the pages shown.

Some of the classics included are: Romeo and Juliet, Lord of the Rings, A Tale of Two Cities, Charlotte’s Web, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Catch-22, Fahrenheit 451, and more.

A-Z Book Recommendations.

What a great idea from my friend at @macrolit :) Had to give it a go. I’ve omitted “A’s” and “The’s” from most of the titles for sake of flow.

  • A - American Gods by Neil Gaiman - A wandering modern “fantasy” that felt keenly poignant to me having grown up in the midwest. You’ll need patience for this one but this book is truly about the journey not the destination.
  • B - Bloody Jack by L.A. Meyer - I’ll be honest, I never finished this series. It got a little overblown but the characters are so genuine that I held out a lot longer than I would expect of myself. This first book though is the definition of a classic middle reader. Lot of Adventure and a lovable, fierce, albeit flawed, female protagonist. 
  • C - Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess - I used to read this book every summer. It’s a rough read with some explicit violence (sexual and otherwise) but an important one I think. I recommend reading the “British” publishing which has 21 chapters (the publishers took out the last one for American audiences, because apparently we don’t like character redemption and growth *eyeroll*). The real genius of this book is the vernacular Burgess created from scratch that is truly like reading another language at first. 
  • D - Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab - Not to be cliche but I find that a lot of the titles Booklr obsesses over in the YA genre to be par-baked at best. Not the case with this series! Well developed characters that exist beyond their actions and exhibit real emotional complexity without relying on tropes and a plot that kept me turning and turning pages!

Sean Lennon & Lana Del Rey - Tomorrow Never Came

Hey, what you doing?
Not a lot
Shaking and moving
In a local spot
Baby don’t ask me why
Don’t ask me why

Lay, Lady lay
On the side of a paradise
In the Tropic of Cancer
‘Cause if I had my way
You’d would always stay
And I’ll be your tiny dancer, honey

I waited for you
In the spot you said to wait
In the city, on a park bench
In the middle of the pouring rain
'Cause I adored you
I just wanted things to be the same
You said to meet me there tomorrow
But tomorrow never came
Tomorrow never came

[Sean Lennon:]
Hey, what you thinking?
Penny for your thoughts?
Those lights are blinking
On that old jukebox
But don’t ask me why
Just swallow some wine

Stay, baby stay
On the side of a paradise
In the Tropic of Cancer
'Cause if I had my way
You’d would always stay
And I’ll be your tiny dancer, baby

[Sean Lennon & Lana Del Rey:]
I waited for you
In the spot you said to wait
In the city, on a park bench
In the middle of the pouring rain
'Cause I adored you
I just wanted things to be the same
You said you’d meet me out there tomorrow
But tomorrow never came
Tomorrow never came

[Sean Lennon:]
Roses are in your country house
We play guitar on your barn
And everyday felt like some day and I
[Lana Del Rey:]
I wish we had stayed home
And I could put on the radio
To our favorite song
Lennon and Yoko
We will play all day long
Isn’t life crazy I said
Now that I’m singing with Sean
Wow, oh

[Sean Lennon & Lana Del Rey:]
I could keep waiting for you
In the spot we always wait
In the city, on the park bench
In the summer, on the pouring rain
Honey don’t ignore me
I just wanted to be the same
You said you loved me like no tomorrow
I guess tomorrow never came
No, no, no
Tomorrow never came

He can't make you feel this way - Daveed Diggs Smut

Pairing:  Daveed Diggs x Reader

Warning:  smut and swearing i think

Requests: nope this idea just popped in my head

A/N:  sorry if this is really bad i’m writing this in a car to tennessee, also requests are opened and i’m going to be writing a lot so send them ! enjoy :)

It was a typical Saturday mid-morning and the entire cast was rehearsing for tonight’s show. I was one of the dancers thanks to my boyfriend’s role as Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson. We were running Yorktown when Andy rushed us, stopping us in the middle of the choreography. We all stood in place confused and breathing heavily from our intense dance.

“I hate to inform everyone that Jasmine won’t be with us for the rest of tour due an important family crisis.” He said obviously concerned and in stressed. 

“What are we going to do?” A dancer spoke up and a few voices spoke up in agreement.

“Glad you asked, well the show must go on so we need a replacement and this is why I stopped you guys because I wanted to ask (Y/N) if she’d be willing to take over as Peggy and Maria since I know you know the music for it.” He explained and my eyes went wide at the sudden offer. I nodded quickly and the rest of my friends began cheering at the sudden change in a more important role. Andy whisked me away and dragged me backstage to talk to me.

“We are going to need you and Lin to practice your scene of ‘say no to this’ and we need to run ‘the Schuyler sisters’ so you know the dance. Are you up for that?” He asked and I agreed excited beyond belief. Andy dismissed the rest of dancers and brought out Phillipa and Renee to teach me the choreography. 

It was an hour later when I finally understood all the placements for the character Peggy so I decided to go to my new dressing room and take a break. Once I stepped in I noticed how much bigger it was and I happily took advantage of the couch by throwing myself down on it and letting my muscles relax. It was only a couple minutes of lying down when a knock appeared at my door.

“Yes?” I called out not bothering to look up to see who had just entered the room.

“I got you some lunch.” A voice called which I quickly recognized as Daveed making me look over with raised eyebrows. A smile grew across my face as he strolled over with a brown paper bag in one hand and plastic to go cup of my fav drink. I sat up to let Daveed sit down next to me and I swung my legs over him as he pulled out a sandwich and handed it over to me.  

“You’re the best.” I grinned at him as I took a large bite out of the food. “I feel like actual death from learning all this stuff.” I groaned only earning a chuckle from Daveed.

“Are you done for today?” Daveed asked as he ate his own food.

“I wish, but I have to learn Maria’s song with Lin still and I have learned that pretty quickly for tonight.” I sighed in complete exhaustion and stress.

“Don’t worry baby, you’ll get it and you’re going to do great tonight and for the rest of the shows.” Daveed smiled sincerely as he rubbed my leg and I replied by pressing my lips to his in a sweet kiss. We both finished eating and I quickly returned to the stage where Andy was standing talking to Lin.

“Ah, there you are! I was about to come find you.” Andy exclaimed as I walked up to him. “I’m going to let you and Lin run this, basically when the ensemble sings ‘no to this’ you guys will need to have a short make out session and then when Lin comes to yell at you, you need to kneel down as if pleading to him and then you’ll have the chair scene. Basically, the choreography isn’t super strict and you guys can have fun with it.” He explained and I nodded relieved that it was only certain things to remember. Andy walked off and I turned to Lin.

“Can we save the kissing for tonight? Sorry but I’m very tired and I would just like to figure out the important dances.” I asked and Lin agreed with a grin. We ran through everything pretty quickly and it only a few run throughs before I felt confident in it. Afterward, there was still a couple hour before we had to get into costume so I decided it would be best if I took a nap in the dressing room.

I woke up to the annoying ring of my alarm and I rolled off the couch and sat up rubbing my eyes. There was a knock at the door and was soon opened by Marie who was going to be doing my hair, makeup, and costume. “Are you excited?” Marie asked as she started on a large amount of stage makeup.

“Yes, but also fairly nervous.” I shrugged and Marie nodded agreeing. The rest of the process to get ready was a comfortable silence for the most part until I was completely decked out in extravagant clothing and makeup and large hair. I quickly thanked Marie before leaving the dressing room and heading backstage to join everyone else. Daveed wrapped his arm around my waist and planted a kiss on my cheek.

“Good luck tonight baby, you’re going to do great.” Daveed smiled down to me and Andy called for us to all take our places.

Daveed’s P.O.V 

I had just finish Yorktown and I hurriedly rushed off the stage to change my costume as Jefferson. I pulled the hair tie from the bun and let my curls stick out and I changed from my blue coat into a red and much more expensive looking jacket. I headed back and first spotted (Y/N) standing on the side of the stage in changed outfit as well. I placed my hand on the small of her back letting her know I was there. She turned around smiling and the joy in her eyes made my heart leap with happiness.

“How are you feeling?” I whispered in her ear. I smirked watching her lightly squirm at my touch.

“I’m giving 110%, I’m just hoping everyone is enjoying the show.” She said with furrowed brows and she looked out to see part of the crowd. Her caring personality is still one of my favorite things about her.

“Good luck, you’re up next.” (Y/N) winked at me as she adjusted my jacket and placed a light kiss on my lips as the final notes of Non-Stop played and I rushed out as ‘Burr’ announced me by singing “You simply must me Thomas, Thomas!”

(Y/N)’s P.O.V

What’d I miss, Cabinet Battle #1, and Take a Break went by quickly as my nerves began to get to me as my large scene came sooner than I expected. 

“There’s nothing like summer in the city.” Burr sang out. Lin sat down at the desk pretending to write.

“I hadn’t slept in a week I was weak…” He started and I adjusted my dress one last time before walking out into the light. 

“I know you are a man of honor…” I sang out to him as he walked over to me.

“So I offered her a loan, I offered to walk her home. She said:”

“You’re too kind, sir.” I sang out completing his sentence. 

“I gave her thirty bucks that I had socked away, she lived a block away. She said:” 

“This one’s mine, sir.” I gestured to a non-existent house and we walked in that direction. 

“Then I said Well, I should head back home, she turned red, she led me to her bed, let her legs spread and said.”

“Stay?”

“Hey…”

“Hey?”

“That’s when I began to pray, Lord show me how to say no to this…” Lin called out while I sang out some backup vocals to the song, my heart was racing as I looked at the front row and saw how invested people were in the music.

“Then her mouth is on mine and I don’t say…”

“No! No!” The ensemble sang out as Lin turned to me and placed his lips to mine, creating a deep and lustful kiss for everyone to watch. I placed one hand on his bicep while my other hand rested on his chest, his hands ran up and down my back and we pulled away once the ensemble quieted down. Lin wide-eyed began to sing once again.

“I wish I could ay that was the last time, I said that last time. It became a pastime…”

Daveed’s P.O.V

My blood boiled watching Lin’s hands roamed around (Y/N)’s body. I clenched my teeth as my mind wandered to Lin doing more things to her.

“I hid the letter and I raced to her place, screamed how could you in her face, she said,”

“No, sir!” (Y/N) cried out on her knees pleading to him.

“Half dressed, apologetic, a mess…” Lin sang out again. They continued to sing out a few more verses until Lin sat down on the chair placed in the center of the stage and (Y/N) sat on his lap, leaning back into him as Lin’s hands went to rubbing one of her thighs and the other ghosting over her breasts. His nose was pressed up to her neck as the both of them sang and much to my relief the song finished and (Y/N) rushed off stage. Another song started up and I looked over to (Y/N) to see her breathing heavily.

“Did it look good?” She asked and I nodded, changing my view to the stage, quickly heading out when it was my signal.

(Y/N)’s P.O.V

I furrowed my brows in confusion as Daveed went on stage without saying a single word.

The show finally finished and we all went out to give our final bows and met a few fans before we could finally go back to our rooms.

“Hey, Daveed, (Y/N) the whole cast is going out to dinner tonight! Care to join?” Lin asked and I happily accepted.

“Sure, we might be a little late though,” Daveed said and I looked up at him confused. Lin nodded and walked off. Daveed grabbed my hand and took me to his dressing room, locking it before looking at me, his look full of hunger. He quickly pulled me into a deep and rough kiss. Daveed roughly grabbed my thighs and pulled me up making me wrap my legs around his waist as he pushed me down onto the couch in his room.

“Daveed,” I moaned out softly as he began to kiss down my neck. I yelped as he let his teeth sink into my flesh, creating multiple marks down my neck. I pushed the jacket off his shoulders while Daveed unzipped the large dress. We both quickly undressed until we were stripped down to our underwear. Daveed attacked me again kissing down my stomach till he reaches my legs. He nipped at the inside of my thighs causing me to whimper out. Suddenly Daveed pushed two fingers into me making me yelp and arch my back, trying to get more friction. He curled his fingers and repeatedly thrust them as far as they could allow. 

“Daveed please, I need you.” I whined out and I could see him smirk at my words. Instead of replying he removed his fingers and filled me with his length making me moan from the satisfaction and the slight pain from the sudden action. Daveed wasted no time to being moving, easily finding my g-spot and making me groan in pleasure with each movement. Daveed placed his head in the crook of my neck, nipping and then soothing the bitten area by rubbing his tongue over the new bruise forming. I held a tight grip onto his hair while my other hand clawed down his back.

“I-I’m close,” I chocked out through moans as Daveed kept roughly thrusting in me and Daveed smiled in satisfaction.

“Let it go baby girl,” Daveed whispered in my ear and the feeling of his hot breath down my neck sent me over the edge as I moaned out loudly and came crashing down like a tsunami while Daveed kept going, his thrusts growing sloppy as I rode out my high he came down as well. Once we both finished he removed himself from me and collapsed on top of me and I ran a hand through his now sweaty hair gently.

“I bet Lin can’t make you feel like that,” Daveed chuckled as he pressed a kiss onto my forehead.

“Is this what this whole thing was about?” I asked concerned as I slid one of Daveeds shirts on in this room.

“I guess I got a little jealous when I saw you and him during Say no to this.” He admitted defeated as he sat up and began to put on a hoodie as well as some shorts.

“Babe, don’t ever worry about that. You are the only one I love like that, and you are definitely the only one who can make me feel like that.” I told him and his eyes lit up at my response.

“I love you too.” He said quietly as he kissed me again.

Parts Two through Five

The first time I tried coffee, I was convinced that it was the most vile thing on Earth. Granted, it was that super bitter, low-quality instant stuff. As I got older and tried higher quality beans and roasts, I fell in love with its complexity. Fast-forward seven years and there I was working as a barista in a quirky little coffee shop in downtown Toronto.

I had always wanted to go to college outside of the United States; I could never really stay contentedly in one place. The constant relocation that came with having parents whose jobs included constant moves was the most likely cause of my wanderlust. That, and the fact that I was raised in places like Germany and England, Texas and Canada. Out of the thirteen different places I had lived, Canada was my favorite; granted, it was Niagara Falls which was known for being very American. Canada was just foreign enough to be separate from the U.S., but Toronto was only seven hours away from where my parents had retired to in Indiana. They weren’t happy about me studying in another country, but conceded that Toronto wasn’t as bad as sending me off to Europe.

The stress of classes hadn’t quite hit me yet, as it was only three weeks into the fall semester of my freshman year at the University of Toronto. I was feeling confident enough to get a job at a coffee shop a couple of blocks away from campus and was enjoying the sense of purpose it gave me. I did however dread the idea that I would possibly have to give it up if my grades started to slip. Granted, the employee benefits of working at a niche little place like Espresso Yourself, along with the free coffee and flexible hours, it would be difficult to leave, no matter how tough my classes got.

After about a month of working at Espresso Yourself, I already had a few regular customers. Most of them were young professionals who would show up in immaculate suits and with purposeful, if not superior, expressions on their faces. While they all seemed to order the same three things, kind of like how they all wore variations of the same three outfits, I learned to predict whether someone would order real coffee or a fancy, sugary drink from the rest of my customers.

Adversely, the only two true regulars who didn’t show up dressed like they would kill each other for a job were two young guys who pretty much lived in Toronto Maple Leafs gear. Despite them being regulars, they never seemed to show up at the same time every day, but by their third visit I knew them by name and their orders by heart. Mitch was the shorter of the two and without fail would order a caramel mocha with extra whip. His friend Auston (double espresso, splash of cream) teased Mitch mercilessly after every order for choosing something so sugary and girly, to which Mitch complained that it was the only out of diet thing he consumed and that he was trying to put on weight anyway. The two bickered like frat boys. Or old women.

Request! 2007!Donatello x Reader/SFW Version.

~Meeting Donatello accidentally.
He goes out on night, just by himself because he just needs a break. Only to screw up a jump and come crashing through your open window. You scream as the turtle brings down a bookshelf, landing hard on the splintered wood.
He groans in pain, giving you a nervous grin.
“Uh…hi?”

~It’s the beginning of a beautiful friendship that later becomes a beautiful relationship, his first relationship. He doesn’t really ask you out, not in the traditional sense.
He just sort of blurts it out one day.
“Are we…are we dating? Because I kind of think we should be-”
“Donnie.”
“But if you don’t then I totally understand-”
“Donnie!”
“Yeah?”
“Of course we’re dating.”

~Dating Donatello in secret.
There’s so much going on at home that he doesn’t want to add more to it. He isn’t sure how his family will react right now, he just needs to find the “perfect time”.
He just doesn’t know when that will be.
“Whenever you’re ready, Don, I’ll be there.“
“What did I do to deserve you?”

~He is SO nervous when you first kiss.
But, oh, it feels so good and your lips are so soft. He starts getting into it and then you’re kissing all the time.
Like, seriously. ALL the time.
"Donnie! I can’t order dinner if you’re-”
He becomes a very, very good kisser.

~Calling Donnie while he is working, so he can have a break from the creepy and sometimes straight up evil customers.
“Darling, you have no idea what I’ve just been through…”
“Wanna talk about it?”

~He’s pretty forgetful and often leaves his stuff at your place. His tools, his shell cell, little inventions he’s been working on, books, even his bo staff.
“Y/N, have you seen my-”
“It’s here, honey, you left it by the couch.”

~Donnie loves your apartment by the way.
It’s not weird there, there’s no moody or missing brothers. He can just hang out and be in love with you.
Wait, what?

~Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh.
He loves you. He’s in love!!

~Donatello realizing he’s in love and just being. So. Damn. Happy. The second he knows, he runs over to see you and kiss you and tell you.
“I…I love you, Y/N.”
“I love you too.”

~Cue more kissing as your favorite love song plays in the background, the sun setting over the city.

~Winters is dead. The portal is closed.
The second Donnie can get away (no easy feat, let me tell you), he goes running to your apartment.
“Donnie, what’s been going on, are you-!”

~And he kisses you.
He just kisses you, holding you like he will never let go.

~Leo is home and the apocalypse has been narrowly averted, and there are no more secrets.
Raphael puts away the Nightrider and Donatello brings you home. He’s actually sweating he’s so nervous! It’s Mikey that breaks the quiet.
“Uh, guys? This is Y/N…my girlfriend.”
“…”
“Duuuude…go Donnie!! Whatta looker!”

~Splinter liking you right away, Mikey is excited to meet you. Leo is a little wary at first but soon warms up and Raph? Raph knew the entire time.
He caught Donnie sneaking out and followed him, only to see the two of you making out.
“Wait, why didn’t you tell?”
“Dunno, guess I just thought you deserved it.“

~Raphael is the biggest supporter. He’ll take care of Donnie’s chores if he has plans with you and doesn’t wait to defend the relationship. He regrets being a jerk to Don when Leo was gone and is trying to make up for it.
“You go, Don, I got this.”

~Reading books with Donnie, all wrapped up in thick blankets. He has a big book on his lap, his arm around you, everything the turtle could want. Lot’s a cuddling and kissing will take place.
"Shouldn’t you be getting back home?”
“One more chapter, dove…”

~Hanging out with Donnie in the lab, him showing you all his inventions. You being impressed with your genius boyfriend, because who wouldn’t be?
“You actually built this?”
“It’s not anything special, just something I threw together.”
“Donnie, it’s fantastic.”

~Donatello quits his job (now that the team is back together, he doesn’t have the time for it thank god) and you all celebrate. It’s the first big family thing you’ve been a part of but everyone treats you like you’ve always been there.
You back a cake for him.

~Donnie telling you cute science jokes and puns, then laughing like an idiot over them. It’s adorkable.

~Hanging out with April because you are the only girls. Talking about your vigilante boyfriends, her giving you self defense lessons.
“Wait, Donnie did THAT??”
“April, what are you telling her?!”

~Dating Donnie for a year and having your own, private celebration. He builds you a bookshelf, filled with half with your favorite books and half with his (he’s always leaving them around anyway).
“To replace the one I ruined.” he says sheepishly.

~Donnie just being SO happy that he has you.
“Have I told you that I love you lately? I have? Better say it again anyway.”

~“I love you, Y/N.”

I met Harry Shum Jr. in a mall near my house on Mother’s Day. It was a few years ago and my family had gone out to see the movie Soul Surfer. We were just coming out of the movie when I saw a sign for a meet and greet with Mike Chang from Glee and I was beyond excited because my little mind was like ooh famous person! So I went to go get in line to get Harry’s autograph.

Basically he was the cutest lil bean on the planet and he was super nice and asked me what my name was and thanked me for watching Glee and was giving all of the mothers at the meet and greet flowers. No literally as I was collecting my autograph and leaving he stopped me and gave me a rose and said “Give this to your mom, okay?” and it was so freaking sweet and every time I think about how I met this wonderful man and how now he’s a main character on a popular TV show and is getting recognition for his acting skills and his role and is playing one of my favorite characters of all time and is such an inspiration I get so emotional

“Who’s ‘Madre’? You have, like, six voicemails from them.”
“Don’t go through my phone.”
“Jeez, don’t get so touchy. I just wanted to play Pokémon Go. My friend told me there was a Blastoise down at the shipyard.”
“Seriously? And you didn’t tell me until now?

I played DS3. I speculated on DS3. Then The Ringed City came out. This is a rant taken from a chat with @heliicon and posted with slight modifications for @bellringerkat‘s amusement.

Ok so, first of all, lemme reiterate for anybody who hasn’t been subjected to my rants yet, the Gods and all connected directly to them are fucking liars.

The Royal Everloving Fuck is up with Midir ? Another dragon up and about that works for the Gods ? Get off my dick. What on earth was Gwyn doing during the war, pulling favoritisms left and right for anybody who was gracious enough to give their ass out ? Wouldn’t surprise me anymore considering how many half dragon children are apparently on the Gods’ bloodline. And speaking of which, who the hell is Shira ? “Daughter of the Duke”, what Duke, Seath ? Tseldora from DS2 ? Another totally unrelated dude that just spawned out of nowhere ? Bull shit.

The Church of Filianore makes no sense. She would have had to be there for fucking forever, even before Gwyndolin probably, so that “youngest daughter” thing is literally meaningless. Why is she sleeping ? Why is that a problem ? Nothing changes if you wake her up ! You get transported to a totally different time and place, in which she’s dead like no one ever woke her up in the first place, so what is the difference ?? Plus that is clearly an alternate dimension just like the Untended Graves, and even if it wasn’t- the “real world” is ALREADY in ruin ! “Her slumber is for the sake of others”, her slumber is an ass pull that stinks of callback.

How the hell are the paintings even supposed to be made without the Dark Soul, which, would you look at that, is kept locked away in a place that would be impossible to access unless Filianore was awakened, only that’s a lie too cause Shira does it, and she’s a fucking liar as well because she said she was a “captive” and yet she just waltzes out like it’s nobody’s fucking business and goes to mope in the little chapel next to Gael’s murder ground, AND WHERE WERE YOU FOR THAT ONE BATTLE, BITCH ? Oh, and how did Gael even get there before us if we had to wake Filianore up for him ? He couldn’t do it himself, otherwise why help the Ashen One all the way down ?? And if he could, it just proves my point that her sleep is totally useless.

Also the more I think about the “King’s Decree” and more it stinks. Is Gwyn the King ? Would make sense, and yet. Why not the God’s Decree. Shira calls him God, the pygmy bitch at the start calls him God. Meanwhile an entire gathering of pygmy royalty is having a picnic in the next dimension. Even Shira’s weapon mentions a “mad king” born of the pygmies. Something’s fishy and it’s not Kos this time. THE FUCKING PURIFICATION MONUMENT CAN REINSTATE THE DECREE. WHAT DOES IT DO, WIPE OUT THE MEMORY OF THE ASHEN ONE CLEANING THE FLOOR WITH HALFLIGHT’S SCRAWNY ASS ?

Londor culture thrives on the Ringed City’s simbolism and yet not one pilgrim made it there, they just all decided to digievolve into Screaming Holy Gatlings just before the drop. Good fucking work, everyone, Yuria would be proud. What the hell happened to the Sable Church anyway ? Wasn’t Friede’s presence kind of a big plot point ? Wasn’t there supposed to be a third sister ? We don’t know. The devs don’t know.

And we haven’t even touched the subject of how it all just Looks Like Oolacile, statues of suspicious Gwyndolin-looking figures, birch trees and Humanity Juice Pool included. Or how the Judicators drop holy water grenades blessed by the Queen of Lothric, yet we still have no idea who she’s supposed to be. And don’t give me that “it’s Gwynevere !!” bullshit, because if you were Gwynevere you wouldn’t escape from a self-centered royal bastard connected to Seath who abuses his children just to come back ages later to have kids with a self-centered royal bastard connected to Seath who abuses his children. What about Rosaria, or Gertude ? Lost to time, but hey, sexy outfits.

This DLC is a mess. This lore is a mess. The Deep is coming. Get your tickets and have a good run, I’ll be back in Anor Londo cutting the dick off of every Gwyn’s statue with my teeth.
