I am in LOVE with the night club au. I would love to see more of it if you ever felt like it. I know you mentioned them sitting through a police raid... Also I love when you do fahc from an outsider's perspective, it's so good and so enjoyable. Keep up the good work :)
Thanks so much! I really didn’t stick to
the perspective as well as i meant to but i just wanted to knock something out
without going back to fix it so it is what it is.
As for the raid, well. Normally Geoff’s contacts are enough to keep that sort
of thing from happening no matter what kind of business he’s meddling in, but
every now and then someone fresh and optimistic comes along trying to change
the world, or one of Geoff’s crooked pals forgets what they owe him, and
the club is subjected to a night of privacy infringement and poorly veiled
insults courtesy of Los Santos’ finest. The notoriety of a raid never hurts FAKE’Sbusiness but any night spent entertaining the boys in blue is a
night not spent raking in the cash from the public, and that just does not make
Geoff a happy man.
Still, when the police descend and pull him
from his office Geoff stays cool and calm and infuriatingly smug, Jack
professional and blasé at his side, and the pair conduct every interview with the
perfect polish of upstanding citizens despite everyone in the room knowing they
are as guilty as sin. They’ll smile, will answer questions as their property is
invaded and their people are harassed, they’ll pointedly refrain from
mentioning that the police chief is a close friend of the business, and no
matter how thorough the search is they’ll never be caught with a scarp of
None of the casual workers have anything to
say, not privy to any of the background business, but even if they were they’re
all smart enough to keep their mouths shut, and all too soon they’re deemed
useless and sent on their way. Steffie and Matt tend to play themselves out with
the crowd and laugh at the others come morning, saved yet again by their
ability to refrain from stirring up a hornet’s nest, avoiding aggravating the
cops in a way the rest of the FAKE’S crew
is oddly incapable of.
The main team are not so lucky, though for
the most part they bring it on themselves; intentionally infuriating and
insufferably cocky they all toy with any member of law enforcement they’re
faced with no matter the rank, daring them to bite back, safe in the confidence
that there’s no trouble Geoff and Jack can’t get them out of. Corralled to the
side of the bar to await their questioning and watch the raid unfold not one of
FAKE’S diehard employees can refrain from
commentating, calling out particular officers who look like they’re slacking or
making suggestions of places to look, slouched together in their insolence, collectively
laughing off every attempt to bring them into order.
Ryan, Jeremy and Michael always play their
interviews the exact same way; stoic and unimpressed with crossed arms, incredulous
looks and just enough menace to keep things interesting without tipping all the
way into threat. Lindsay and Mica swing
from overtly airheaded to ruthlessly clever brutally enough to keep any member
of law enforcement too busy trying to dig themselves out of the pit of offensively
sexist stereotyping to bother collecting any viable information. Trevor pleasantly
answers every question without ever actually answering a single question, and Gavin
is, as always, a menace. All big guileless eyes and affinity for starting
trouble he pokes and prods, taunts and teases, chewing up and spitting out
officers like they’re regular patrons of the club, but the detectives are
another matter altogether. They always circle back to Gavin, closeness to Geoff
making him a prime candidate for interrogation, and for all Gavin hates them
they tend to hate him right back, or pity him, or on one notable occasion that instantly
turned the tone of the room from amused to quietly furious, call him all kinds
of unpleasant names casting aspersions on his character and role at the club.
That particular detective didn’t last long;
for all he mocked Michael’s sudden snarling appearance and Gavin’s scathing
response, sneer only wobbling in the face of the cold, silent judgement of the FAKE’S around him, he wasn’t laughing
when Geoff caught up to him later. Wasn’t laughing when he slunk back into the
club the next night, face burning with humiliation as he issued a full blown
apology in front of everyone, suffering through Gavin’s haughty dismissal and turning
on his heel to leave. He certainly wasn’t laughing when Ryan, Michael and
Jeremy sprung into motion at a nod from Geoff, effortlessly cutting through the
rolling crowd like wolves as they silently followed the detective out into the night.
Safe inside the dancers keep dancing,
keep drinking and flirting with the staff, keep gossiping about FAKE’S latest brush with the law as they
pour their hard earned cash into the club, utterly oblivious to the free
lesson in minding one’s manners that is transpiring in the unlit alley out back.
Hello! This is my first follow forever since I came back from hiatus. I’ve lost over 400 followers during that period and many of my mutuals have become inactive as well :-( So I have two main reasons for doing this: 1) to show my appreciation to the people who make my dash so pleasant to scroll through, especially those who’ve been with me since the start (I used to be effietrlnket, in case you’re confused), and 2) get recommendations for blogs who post similar content as the ones below!
If any of you know other awesome people please drop me a message or include their usernames in the tags - whatever floats your boat! I really need to follow more blogs again to get an active dash~ thank you so much! xxx
The being stood away from the other giving a good distance between them. Face and tone remaining emotionaless as so often it would when confronting another. Figure standing straight and relaxed, though the feeling that they would leave still hangs in the air. If the attention was not on them then the feeling of them disappearing hangs over head. Gone in under a second.
Keeping any venmon that may spew from their mouth closed off as they rather not put anymore ill will between them. Already harboring a few comments and opinions they do not wish to make more. Dealing with the first is already enough for them, anything more and they doubt they’ll be seeing the other face to face like this again.
Changed my “Reading list” into “What’s keeping me sane list”
Yes I did! Just thought that I needed a break from all the stress from school. Since books are not the only ones giving me a peace of mind, I decided to replace the reading list with my own set of whatever list containing books still! k-dramas yaaaay! movies? I don’t know. I’m not really fond of watching them unless they’re book adaptations, disney or animations.
Here it goeees!
First 4 on the list ~~
My cousin gave them to me as a gift last month and until now, they are still left untouched in the bookshelf! sad I know. Never watched the movies except one (don’t know which one but I’m sure it wasn’t the first). Sorry in advance to all the twilight fans out there but I find it boring? I didn’t even know that you spell twilight with a single L until now! All my life I though it was “Twillight”! Shame on me. So, now I’m giving it a shot with the books! maybe it could give me the feels that movie didn’t gave me. It’s always different in the books! they’re better (for me)! Any fans out there? What do you think? Convince me!
Last one ~~
Love in the Moonlight!
Watch it! I’m currently on episode 8 and I can’t wait to finish it as soon as possible! Park bo gum is such a sweetheart and all. Unfortunately, I was diagnosed with the Second Lead Syndrome! Everybody on the drama is gooood! Can’t say a lot about story because I’m still stuck at 8 but as of now, nothing’s stopping me from watching it :) I’m really looking forward on this one!
I’m really hoping (crossed fingers) that I could finish reading and watching them until May? Yep May but I’m not quite sure because I still have my Law book, Auditing Theory book, Management consulting book and a lot of other books to read! You know what I mean :( I still have a thesis to make, some case analysis and don’t forget the exams! Those are the main reasons why I did this list anyway. I need to breathe! I used to be so positive but this semester is just too hard, demanding and frustrating that I needed something to make me feel at ease somehow. Anyway, that’s all I have to say! If you have a good book (also, series, dramas, movies or anything you have in there) in mind, please do tell me :) I would really appreciate suggestions :))
