Hey! If you're still taking prompts, could you write about neil and Andrew having a conversation about Neil's past? Like the stuff he had to do to survive and the stuff he went through with the worlds shittiest parents? Also I'm pretty sure neil has killed people like it makes complete sense so maybe andreil talking about that?

There’s a band of pale blue light nipping at the tops of the trees and sharpening the silhouettes of the houses, but everything else is fresh and dark. Andrew smokes with the pack clenched in his fist, the cherry of the cigarette winking at the street lamps winking at the orange moon.

Their front porch isn’t like the rush of the rooftop, but he can get that same jitter of fear from Neil nowadays, and he’s more portable. He’d left him knotted in the bedsheets an hour ago, and knowing he’s inside somewhere at his back is burning him up. Andrew inhales and focuses on the exhale, the way the smoke still tries to hurt him when it should’ve given up. He likes that nicotine doesn’t leave him alone.

Neil slips out the front door and lets the screen door clatter, and Andrew knows that he’s upset before he sits down two steps below Andrew, holding his own head.

He doesn’t ask; just smokes fervently. The moon bobs its head sympathetically, wind catches the smoke and breaks it over Neil’s head like water on rocks.

It occurs to Andrew that Neil isn’t going to start this conversation, because he likes to think things through on his own, solve them wrong, and tell Andrew about his mistakes later. He’s insufferably convinced of his own problem-solving abilities, then obsessed with the mechanism of his own missteps.

“What?” Andrew asks impatiently. He flicks ash from his cigarette and holds it out in front of Neil’s face. Neil sidles through his own tangled thinking for long enough to glance up. He leans forward and sucks the smoke from between Andrew’s fingers.

When he looks away, gusting smoke from his open mouth, he says, “Matt called. We fought.”

You fought,” Andrew guesses.

Neil looks agitated, blue in the choked light, eyes black and furious. “He was being unfair. He keeps trying to tell me what’s right or wrong lately, because he thinks I’ve been— been deprived, like my experiences were outside of humanity, or morality, and it’s so— condescending.”

“You’re only realizing this now? All of the foxes are condescending. It is the only way they can avoid their own failure.”

“This was different,” Neil says, shaking his head. “I can tell when they’re saying things because they want to see my reaction, and this wasn’t that. He meant what he was saying.”

“And what was that?”

Neil goes gagged silent. He shifts backwards up to Andrew’s stair without looking at him, settling into the groove worn into the wood.

“That killing someone makes you a monster. That murder is the worst thing you can do to a person.”

The signs as quotes from Freeman's Mind
  • Aries: "Ugh. Darwin was right. I didn't realize I was working with a bunch of lemmings."
  • Taurus: "I should think less like a human being that uses doors, and more like a... squirrel that has anger problems."
  • Gemini: "It's like the classic debate of why measuring the position of an electron changes its momentum and vice-versa. The only correct answer is to get drunk and set fire to things."
  • Cancer: "Since this morning, I've been bitten, shot, bombed, electrocuted, almost drowned, almost fallen to my death, and strangled. Rasputin wasn't so lucky."
  • Leo: "I HAVE TO BLOW EVERYTHING UP. IT'S THE ONLY WAY TO PROVE THAT I'M NOT CRAZY."
  • Virgo: "You can never prove the absence of ninjas, only their direct presence."

  • Scorpio: "Friends are like weeds that scream."
  • Sagittarius: "It looks like an anemometer, but it is not. Anemometers don't fire bullets. Not even the expensive ones. Or I don't think they do. If they do, meteorologists are more hardcore than I thought."
  • Capricorn: "So yeah, I'm killing people now. But that was NOT murder. That was TOTALLY self-defense. Just because I have a sub-machine gun doesn't change anything."
  • Aquarius: "I do belong in a pedestal, but metaphorically, God damn it!"

I’m sitting here just thinking about how I’ve been a fan of his art, his personality, his soul… everything, for so many years. I feel like he’s already doing what he set out to do; to be honest, to put himself out there. It’s already really overwhelming, and we haven’t even heard the album yet. I’m still trying to formulate words for how proud of him I am. I’m just excited to see all the parts of himself he wants to show us: as a solo artist, as an actor, as a fourth of a band. I just really feel honored to call myself a fan.

I know this has been said plenty of times before but I just had a moment and I need to say this again - I’m so SO proud of Niall. As a louie it’s a bit bittersweet to see how amazing Niall’s promo is (compared to all the others but for me personally compared to louis’) but I’m just genuinely happy and excited for Niall cause he deserves everything good in the world and I’m so glad that he gets what he wants to do and gets the amazing promo he deserves. What he’s doing right now is basically what we all wanted for 1D for years - promo that focuses on the music instead of private life stuff. And as much as I wish they could all have that right now, the main feeling is being excited and proud of niall for finally getting the attention he always deserved but was refused while being in the band

  • Gemini: *while drunk* Wait. So if we evolved from apes, how are there still apes? Shouldn't they be humans, too?

  • Leo: Yeah, girls call me "Aquamenti." Every time they hear my name, they get wet.

  • Pisces: I'm going to glue a unicorn horn to your head so the world can see how fruity you are.

Do you ever wonder why there’s always this push for everyone working with the boys becoming instant best friends with them? I mean, we know they’re lovely boys (that’s why we’re here) but… you don’t have to be somebody’s closest friend just because you have to work with them. Also remember that this fandom is so quick to “adopt” anyone that says any flowery words about the boys and we know that often doesn’t end up well. Keep in mind that we’re a huge and engaged fanbase of the biggest boy band on the planet. Everybody wants to tap on that spring ($$$). And y’all make it far too easy.

I WANT AN INTERNET BEST FRIEND THAT I CAN TALK TO 24/7(well maybe not 24/7 but you know what I mean ok) AND WE CAN FACETIME AND TALK EVERYDAY AND TELL EACH EVERYTHING AND MAYBE MEET OMG OK sorry

Seemes like exploitation to me. Is there a willing audience for fever era nostalgia? Yes. Will that audience be pissed bc the band is gone? Yes. How do we appease them? By doing a gimmickey homage to broken guitars and photographs from back in the day ! Yeah, the fans will dig that shit!! . It’s true i did. And while i was diggin it all up, i thought to myself, damn, they are sooo doing this for money and to make it look like brendons not forgetting his past and make him look softer in our eyes. Makes sense. Great career move or whatever, but can it be a dick move as well? Yes. Do i consider it to be? Yes IT’S A SONG ABOUT RYAN ROSS DEAD AND ABUSIVE FATHER WHAT THE FUCK

zoohope  asked:

Can you do a reaction to their girlfriend have dark skin and the fans not liking her. For any band? Also I'm loving your account

Here ya go!


Namjoon:

He would be low key pissed but keep in control. Most of all I think he’ll just be disappointed when he goes on SNS and sees those immature and jealous fans who can’t be happy for him and don’t see you as his future like he does. As for you, he’d do everything and anything to make you feel better about yourself and make you feel beautiful (if ya know what I mean?) ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Nope. Fuck you for messing with Min Suga’s girl! Yoongi may not be the best when it comes to people, but he will be there for you. He would be pissed, he wouldn’t show it around you because he doesn’t want you to see him like that but you can just bet the diss raps are coming, and the savagery is on.

You: “Yoongi thank you but you don’t have to write another song defending my honor.”

Yoongi: *blankface “But I already wrote the whole album.”

Little ball of sunshine will be all you can think about and he’s gonna make sure it stays that way! But behind the scenes there’s talking to Bang PD and asking if their policy on slander can be extended to you. Hobi will more than just comfort you, he’ll protect you.

“Don’t worry about it Jagiya. I’ll look after you.”

Jimin:

You would be on your phone, and he would notice the look of hurt on your face as you read the cruel comments of fans online. Jimin understands physical insecurities probably more than anyone in BTS so I feel like he might get pissed enough actually call people out online or request that they stop. Either way, he loves you and knows no one deserves to feel bad about themselves.

“You are beautiful and amazing no matter what other people think. Please remember that.”

Taehyung:

Tae would be sad that you’re sad but instead of get angry and tell people off I feel like he would be similar to Hobi and do his best to make you so happy with him that you forget all about it. But when the problem arose again he’d ask the other for help and it would turn into addressing the entire fandom either on SNS or with a video.

You: “Tae, you shouldn’t have, now they might get mad at you!”

Tae *confused “But are you okay? Cause that’s all that matters to me.”

Jungkook:

 Jungkook’s had his fair share of insecurities when it comes to skin so it would come as no surprise that he was very comforting and understanding but I feel like he wouldn’t know what to do when it came to the fans himself. He’s always just let it roll of his shoulder but this was you, his love, he couldn’t just let this go!

You: *at a concert “Oh my god. Jungkook, no! Jimin take the mic from him!”  

Jungkook: *ignores you and shoves JM away. “I have something to say!”

anonymous asked:

aaah babe can u please help me out? whats this 'laundy day' thing people are associating louis' ig activity with i'm a bit lost? sorry for bothering xx

mmkay so the band did an interview where they were talking about the hiatus and Harry and Louis were very enthusiastic about “doing laundry”…

which you can take one of two ways. Either “it all comes out in the wash”…

Or, you can take it as a Friends reference:

but in terms of your actual question, Laundry Day has kind of become a “thing” in terms of big things like team change, BG ending, a coming out… when the laundry is done and everything has come out in the wash you see? And there is a Twitter account that was made for people to turn notifications on to get big news when it happens.

ANYWAY - this has been an ongoing thing for a while and then Louis likes this yesterday I think it was, maybe the day before?

And Louis recently commented about how we all pay close attention to his social media and we work things out and make connections between things, so, make of all that what you will lol

Probably a coincidence.

Listen this isn't band but I'm desperate for the stereotypes of chorus/choir kids or drama kids

choir: sing along to fucking EVERYTHING but like, harmonizing w the song, travel in packs but only w/ their sections, “im not that good :) *BELTS the next line to the song*”

drama: LOUD, talk about musicals 24/7, either gay or “i like theater but im NOT gay”

anonymous asked:

hi listen not to be rude but you're being rude just because you don't like the new band or whatever doesn't mean go and try to hate no one told you to listen to them or like them so don't make a hateful post about it because you're only being childish and you should be better than that and i'm not saying suport them but i am saying grow up and deal with it you're not gonna like everything in life and you don't have to but don't post hateful stuff and be ignorant and rude that's just stupid

Omfg you’re making me laugh so hard right now… 

Hunny, I’ve been trying to deal with the fact that white people are claiming or using things from Asian people all my life now. And the fact that now there is goddamn white people trying to make it into the kpop industry astonishes me. We don’t need them, not now, not yet. 

I had to watch white people portray Asian roles in movies and shows all my life!! AND IT’S STILL HAPPENING. I had to watch Asians be a background role and even be portrayed as nerdy or had to teach a white male karate. AND I HAVE NEVER SEEN AN ASIAN PERSON MAKE IT HUGE IN AMERICA’S MUSIC INDUSTRY.

My point is, we don’t need them. They’re gonna flop anyways.

Oh and “deal with it you’re not gonna like everything in life” … yeah ok, then YOU deal with that fact that I don’t like this situation either.

Who are your favorite musicians?

Flea: Jimi Hendrix, the Rolling Stones…

Anthony Kiedis: At this time, I listen to the Clash again, whose founder, Joe Strummer, died recently. Moreover, we covered some chords of London Calling, one of their hits, in our shows, as a tribute to this great band.

John Frusciante: Hendrix, the Beatles, the Who, Buddy Holly, Led Zeppelin… Actually, old things!

Chad Smith: Britney Spears and Avril Lavigne (he laughs)…no, I’m saying bullshit!

As which animal would you like to be reincarnated?

Anthony Kiedis: As a marine animal… The grace and the mobility of the killer whale fascinates me, but I don’t know if I would be able to kill the other fish.

Flea: I would say a koala.

John Frusciante: A bird…

Chad Smith: A wild horse!
