okay i lied one more end of the world post but had i known

I’ve have read so many literary masterpieces in the past few weeks, months, years but I never really had them all in one place so I thought it’s about time I put together a proper list and put an end to all these random OMG THIS FIC IS SO GOOD YOU GUYS HAVE TO READ IT posts. I’ll update this whenever I find some more Good Shit but this is it for now - enjoy!


Not Easily Conquered (117,692)

In 1945, Steve Rogers jumps from a nosediving plane and swims through miles of Arctic Ocean to a frozen shore.

In 1947, Steve Rogers marries Peggy Carter.

In 1966, the New York Times finds the lost letters of Sergeant James Buchanan Barnes.

Womb to tomb, sweetheart.

“Ladies and gentlemen of the jury,” Peggy says, “These are the times that try men’s souls.”

After the Bombs (218,953)

Bucky Barnes never fell off of the train in the Alps. Steve Rogers didn’t have to wake up alone in the future. Things aren’t exactly perfect as they try to come to terms with a completely different future and work out the feelings that they’ve had for each other for decades, but at least they get to figure it out together. (The MCU re-imagined with Bucky as an original Avenger)

Slow Work (81,114)

It’s 2011, men are allowed to marry, and Bucky is dead.

The future isn’t all that’s strange. Together in peacetime for the first time since before Steve took the serum, Steve and Bucky struggle to find their place - and each other - in the middle of a new millennium, new bodies, and new dynamics.

Or, just because you wake up in a century where everything you’ve repressed is magically okay, that doesn’t make it easy.

Cascades (152,138)

“Holy shit,” Howard says, crackling through the speakers. “You alive in there?” Lying is a sin, of course, but Steve’s not sure what else he can do. He’s already lied to the government and Bucky and God Almighty; and himself, himself most of all. He ought to tell the truth. That he’s not quite what they hoped for. That perhaps they should put him back into the ocean.

“Probably,” he says, instead, listening to Howard’s tinny laughter; and waits for the blast doors to unlock.

Easy Work for Easy Pay (45,719)

Bucky’s working his way back up through the ranks at S.H.I.E.L.D. after a mission took his left arm and Stark gave him a new metal one.

So when Fury tasks him with integrating the newly defrosted Captain Rogers into the 21st century, he jumps at the promotion.

Grab Your Things I’ve Come to Take You Home (22,310)

Steve getting hit with some sparkly purple sh*t during a battle and left with all of his old ailments gives Bucky the opportunity to do something he’s been meaning to do for ages.

4 Minute Window (87,933)

“Look, if they catch me,” Bucky muttered, “they’re either going to kill me or they’re going to put me in a box with a little window and—Steve, I can’t.”

Into That Good Night (73,540)

Steve Rogers has lived for entirely too long—long enough to see the world’s end. The heroes are gone, and the Earth is pushing what’s left of mankind towards the exit.But when a makeshift team rises from the ashes, when a mysterious presence all but drags Steve there, he begins to think there may be hope yet. As they shoot for the stars one last time, Steve will get proof yet again that the future is nothing if not an echo of the past. (Interstellar AU)

Hold Unto Me (Cause I’m a Little Unsteady) (15,028)

“Your heartbeat sounds different,” Bucky declares suddenly one night. Steve is half-asleep when he says this, blinking himself awake in a fatigue-slowed daze. “Sorry, what?” - “Your heartbeat,” Bucky repeats as if it’s the most obvious thing in the world. "It doesn’t sound the same.“

Take Me Home (78,161) 

“I’m so sorry, I’m gonna help you I promise, just don’t move, fuck, I ran over Captain America–” the man apologized, over and over, and all Steve managed to say was, “You’re really attractive,” before passing out on the guy’s lap in the middle of the road.

The Wolf and The Sheep  (50,557)

Steve Rogers is a SHIELD agent who is recruited for a secret project: Becoming a handler for the Asset. Steve’s world is thrown for a loop when he discovers the Asset is an actual person and he needs to figure out who he is and what he’s going to do.

Steve as the Winter Soldier’s handler AU. (Non-HYDRA trash party.)

Building From the Ground Up (68,687)

“What about you, Barnes?” asks Dugan. The sound of his voice brings Bucky back to the present, dredges him out of memories of a beat-up little apartment with sunlight streaming in through the windows. “Got yourself a girl waiting for you back home?”

There’s an answer on the tip of his tongue, one that he’ll deliver with a cocky grin and a half-laugh and a little shake of his head. But Bucky is exhausted and hungry and so sore it hurts to move, and one of the guys in their platoon fucking died yesterday. His mouth tastes like iodine water and his feet hurt and none of it’s going to get better any time soon, and all at once Bucky misses Steve so badly he can barely see straight.

“Yeah,” Bucky declares abruptly, the word escaping from his mouth before he fully realizes what he’s saying. “Yeah, I do.”

I Love You Like RLB (3,484)

I love you like rlb has become a well-known, accepted and valuable component of American vernacular. The meaning of the letters ‘rlb’ is unknown, but is uniformly considered to be a statement of a great romantic love, commitment and sacrifice.

Kingdom Come (8,216)

“It’s too late, Steve,” Bucky’s voice across the comm is flat, layered with static. “The deadlock’s irreversible. S’ the only way.”

Steve knows what nearly dying feels like; knows it better than most, and this - those words, that voice, this impossible burning that courses through him like the serum in reverse, this.

This is so much worse than nearly.

A History of Skin (23,214)

Bucky and Steve were made and unmade by each other’s hands.

Or, five touches that defined Bucky Barnes, and one that didn’t.

“Hey. Jughead. Jughead!” a voice called, pulling the teenager out of his thoughts.

Jughead had been sitting at Pop’s now for hours. You had confessed your feelings for him three hours ago and he had rejected you despite liking you back.

Idiot.

Jughead looked up at the voice that was calling him. It was Pop who sighed at the pathetic teenager.

“Are you just gonna sit there and mope all day or are you gonna get that girl?” he asked.

Jughead sighed, sitting back in his chair.

“I can’t do anything else, Pop,” he said. “I already told her my true feelings.”

Jughead hated the way the lies tasted on his tongue. Pop snorted.

“We both know that’s not true,” he said, sitting down across from Jughead.

Jughead looked up at the man who sighed.

“Jughead, I’ve known you since you were a kid. I’ve seen the way you are around her. You love her.” the old man stated.

Jughead’s head jerked up at that, his eyes wide.

“No—I—I can’t—“ he began but stopped, knowing defending himself was a lost cause.

Jughead sighed.

“It’s complicated, Pop.” he said, sitting back.

Pop nodded.

“You’re worried the two of you are going to end up like your parents, aren’t you? That’s why you lied to her.” he stated, hesitant to bring the subject up.

Jughead flinched at the mention of his parents but nodded anyway.

Pop sighed again.

“Well, I can’t tell you that the two of you won’t end up like your parents. No one can predict the future,” he began. “But I can guarantee you that you’ll never have that happy ending if you ignore your feelings.”

Jughead shook his head.

“I-I can’t, Pop. I just broke her heart. How am I going to fix that?” he asked.

Pop got up from the booth.

“Do what you wished Archie would’ve done last summer,” he said, walking off. 

“Just talk to her.”

Jughead approached your house with shaky hands. What if you didn’t believe him? What if you didn’t even let him talk to you? Explain himself to you? What if you never wanted see him?

A door slamming made Jughead look up and he froze when he saw who it was walking towards him.

Veronica Lodge. A very angry Veronica Lodge. You must’ve called her after Jughead had rejected you, needing a shoulder to cry on. Jughead gulped as he knew what was coming.

“Jughead Jones the Third, you have some explaining to do.” she growled walking right up to him so there were mere inches between them.

Jughead gulped again.

“I need to talk to Y/N.” he said.

Veronica stepped back and crossed her arms.

“Oh, you’ve done more than enough talking this evening.” she said.

Jughead groaned.

“Look, I know I messed up, okay? This is all so new to me and complicated. I thought if I rejected her, I could spare her of a broken heart in the future. Instead, I broke her heart by lying to her. I just want to tell her I’m sorry, and that what I told her isn’t how I feel at all.” he said.

Veronica opened her mouth, ready to tell Jughead off again when the two of them heard the front door open again.

“Veronica,” you called, making the Lodge girl turn around. Even from a distance, Jughead could tell you had been crying. Your eyes and cheeks were red and your voice was raw.

“It’s okay. He can come in.” you said.

Veronica looked like she was about to protest but instead closed her mouth and nodded. Jughead began to walk past her until Veronica grabbed his arm, stopping his movement. She leaned in close to his ear.

“You hurt her again and you’re dead. Understand that?” she asked.

Jughead quickly nodded and Veronica let go of his arm, watching the black-haired boy like a hawk as he followed you into your house.

He closed the door behind him as he followed you into your living room, utter silence between the two of you. Eventually you sat on the couch and Jughead sat down next to you, awkward silence filling the small space between the two of you.

“I, um, came to apologize,” Jughead said softly and you turned to look at him. “At the diner… I lied. About how I really felt towards you.”

You scoffed.

“Why?” you asked. “Jughead, why would you lie about something like that?” you asked.

He sighed.

“Y/N, it’s just that… My parents…” he began, struggling for a way to explain. “They had such a good relationship in the beginning. Everything was happy, they were happy, even Jellybean and I were happy. And then just one day… no one was.”

He turned to you and realized your faces were millimeters apart.

“It ended in disaster, Y/N. You remember how I came to you crying about what happened,” he said. “I just thought if I could avoid love with everyone for the rest of my life, I wouldn’t be able to hurt them like my parents hurt each other. Instead, I broke your heart, you, the person I love the most in the world and the person most important to me by lying to you. I’m sorry.”

There. The truth was out. You were silent as you contemplated your next words. Jughead was about to get up and leave, thinking that he ruined everything all over again by telling you the truth when he felt you gently take his hand.

“We won’t be like them.” you said softly.

“How do you know?” Jughead asked.

You thought for a second.

“Because we witnessed what happened to them. We know the mistakes they made, the paths they took to get them where they are today. We’ll avoid those mistakes, and we’ll avoid those paths. We’ll take the other road. We’ll be okay.” you said.

Jughead thought about your words for a second before smiled softly, looking down as your intertwined fingers.

“Well…” he began. “Guess we’re really doing this, huh? After all this time?” he asked.

You smiled.

“Yeah. Guess we are.”

Pep Talk

Characters: Dean x Reader, Sam

Word Count: 1,647

Warnings: I don’t think there is any… Just fluff

Summary: You always practice what you want to say to Dean in front of your mirror. You want to tell your feelings about him to him but you always chicken out. What happens when he overhears you? 

Author’s Note: So, I have decided that for my Series Rewrite, I will post multiple parts of the same episode since they are a bit lengthy. I will add each part each hour until the end. So between 10am-2pm tomorrow, I will post the first part of the first episode. Then an hour later, I will post the second part to the first episode and so on so forth until the episode is over. 

Today, I won’t be posting any background stories because the first episode doesn’t need one. But for next week, it will have one. 

As Always, please, send in requests because I love reading them and I love writing them! If you would like to be tagged in my future fics and my Series Rewrite that is coming tomorrow, let me know and I’ll add you!

Feedback is always appreciated

“It’s okay, Y/N, you got this. You’ve only been living with the man for 8 years now. It’s not like you haven’t imagined how this goes. He’ll like you back. He flirts with you all the damn time.” You muttered, pacing in front of your mirror.

You’ve lived with the Winchesters for a long time now and you’ve fallen in love with the older Winchester. Of course, Sam figured it out right away but not Dean. He’s been oblivious and every year, you gave yourself a pep talk to woman up and tell him how you feel.

You would do this in front of your mirror and you would get to say everything you were feeling but when you saw Dean, you bailed on the plan and pretended everything was fine when it wasn’t. You’ve even practiced on Sam and he was always there to encourage you.

But again, you deflated whenever you saw Dean. He was your biggest weakness and your greatest strength. You’ve always hunted well with him but you were always used as bait for him. You hated dancing around this subject but you could never find the courage to say what you had to say.

“Dean Winchester, I am in love with you. No, Y/N, that’ll scare him off. Ease into it. Okay, Dean Winchester, I’ve known you for 8 years and in that span of time, I have fallen for you. No, that sounded cringy. Just say what’s in your heart.” You said to yourself, stopping in front of your mirror, staring at yourself.

“Dean Winchester, you’re my best friend and I don’t know what I would do without you. I hunt better when you’re next to me, I’m a better person when you support me. You make me better. I hope I do the same to you because I’m in love with you. Yes, I am in love with the way your beautiful green eyes sparkle when you talk about something you love.

“I am in love with your scent. I can’t get enough of that leather, motor oil, whiskey, and gun powder smell. I love wearing your shirts because they smell like you and they make me feel safe. You make me feel safe. I love the way you care for your friends and family.

“You have such a big heart and I love you for that. I love your body. I love the way you laugh. I love your voice. I love the crinkles you get by your eyes when you smile. You age like fine wine. I love how much you care about me and Sam. I love that you put everyone first.

“You think so low of yourself but you’re anything but. I want to hold you and kiss you and make you feel better and fix you up when you get hurt. I want all those things and more. I want a family with you. I want to wake up to you every morning. I want to marry you because you deserve the world and I want to give that you.

“I love you, Dean Winchester and I’m not sure you know just how much.” You sighed when you finished. That is all you wanted to say. That wasn’t so hard, now was it. Now all you had to do was find Dean and saw those exact words. You can do this. You got this. Everything will go according to plan.

Rogue One: Catalyst: Thoughts

- link to my other Rogue One blabberings -

Finally finished reading Rogue One: Catalyst by James Luceno, or as it’s also known by:

  • Lyra Erso: Badass;
  • Lyra Erso: They Could Have Easily Created Parallels Between You and Chirrut+Baze in the Film Instead of Ignoring Your Existence;
  • Lyra/Galen OTP Fever: How to Write a Strong, Balanced Couple While Still Giving Them Relationship Hurdles;
  • “I’m Thirsty for You and Your D, Galen,” Screams Krennic Into the Rain
    • with foreword by Galen Erso, “Who Is This? And What Does He Mean By My D?”
    • and annotated by Lyra Erso, *The dickbag is talking about the Death Star, honey.
  • Tarkin/Krennic: Hux/Kylo Ren Got Nothing On This Hate Couple
  • and finally: Jyn Erso Is A Normal Human Child: how this makes her future character arc 1000x more painful

NB: Have only seen the RO film and have now read this book. This is going to be long and about 90% quotes related to characterization.

General Impression:

  • Writing was okay. Not great, but not bad. (This is especially apparent since I’ve just started reading the RO novelization, and the difference in quality is pretty startling.) Nice quick read.
  • Lyra is fantastic.
  • Galen is pretty interesting.
  • Jyn is adorable and normal, and it breaks my heart.
  • Krennic is… wow, I just want to laugh because he’s so absurd but also a Terrible Human Being.
  • Tarkin is fascinating (see waaaay below for details).

Lyra Erso

  • No one holds this bitch down.
    • “She had no recourse. She wasn’t built to hold things in; to be complacent or compliant.”
    • “Some of Orson’s remarks had made her wonder whether she and Galen were under surveillance, or even whether her personal comlink might be bugged. But she didn’t care either way. Orson may have drawn the line in the sand, but she would be the one to step over it.”

No. No no no.

Yixing blindly reaches for Sehun as the dull grief he had been feeling for the past several years spikes into acute, jagged fear. And fury. She can’t do this. She can’t just play with his life like this! She can come for Yixing, poison him, beat him, take a shot at his head all she wants – but if Y/N thinks she can lay a single finger on Sehun, on his little brother—

Yixing’s feet react faster than his brain and he’s weaving through the crowded room, trying not to run, trying to keep his face impassive, silently calculating how many fucking bullets he’ll put between her eyes – when a hand catches his arm and stops him.

“You’ve come home,” Suho says, dropping his hand when Yixing stares at it.

“No thanks to you,” he mutters and takes a step away. He needs to go, now, and the last person he wants to talk to is his father. He’s half-turned towards the door, but Suho continues with purposeful obliviousness to Yixing’s urgency.

“Please,” he scoffs. “There was no doubt in my mind that you were going to escape. I trained you myself, remember? I will always bet on you, Yixing.”

A blossom of warmth unfurls in his chest, but Yixing quickly tamps it down – because this is what Suho does. His words are sweet as honey but his actions are colder than a knife’s edge.

“This wasn’t a bet, Suho,” he rakes a hand through his hair, “you took a gamble on my life. What if you had lost?”

“Have I lost before?” This is a rhetorical question. Suho’s track record of victory is impeccable. “Anyway, I expect a thorough debriefing of the whole event. The Nightshade girl is playing with fire here, and I think it’s time we turn up the heat.” 

Yixing’s eyes slide to Sehun happily chatting with his brothers, and he nods. On this matter, he agrees with his father – but he’s not about to come running back home because of it. “Okay,” he lies smoothly. “We’ll talk tonight, but I have to go now.”

“Where on earth could you possibly go when your entire world is right here?” Suho calls after his retreating figure, and he grits his teeth. Because Y/N has somehow managed to wedge her way into his world too, Suho just doesn’t know it yet.

Stuck in Limbo // pt. 1

A/N.: This idea came to me a couple of weeks ago and I just had to write it down. I had originally planned this to be a one-shot, but turns out (and this comes as no surprise) I got too excited with the story and, therefore, it got kinda long, reason why I’m turning it into a two-parter. So I hope you guys enjoy this part, the next and final one should be up pretty soon! I’d love to know your thoughts on this though, so please let me know what you think! Your opinions are deeply appreciated!!

“Riley? Riles, you there?”

Lucas walks into the dark, silent living room, confusion painting his features. He turns the lights on as his eyes scan the apartment, the place is completely empty. His mind instantly wanders back to the conversation he had with Riley over breakfast. They weren’t on the best terms for the past couple of days, that was for sure, but she had promised him she’d make it tonight.

He steps aside letting Zay in, throwing his keys on the table when something catches his eye. Oh no, she didn’t. Lucas can feel his jaw tighten as he reads the note, rolling his eyes at its unpleasant, though unsurprising, message. It doesn’t go unnoticed by Zay.

“Let me guess… Jackass? He chuckles, walking over to the couch.

“What do you think?” The blonde bites out, rereading the note aloud “Out with Jack. Don’t wait up. Wink face.” Lucas features distort in disgust as he scrunches up the piece of paper and tosses it away.

anonymous asked:

who is pete wentz writing songs about?

mikey way. okay, here we go.

so, in the summer of 05 is when most people think it started because fob and mcr played warped together, but, they had also played the year before and thats when i think it started. as many know, pete single handedly wrote the entirety of from under the cork tree, which was released may 3rd of 2005, which means he had been writing some of it the previous summer. most of the album is quite cheery, depicting the emotions of someone who is battling some darker force within themselves, but is also experiencing a happiness from someone else they dont think they deserve or should have (short version: an emo is in love). also, theres the parallel between dance dance and favorite record- dance dance depicts a literal and emotional dance, and then in favorite record you have “i cant remember just how to forget the way we danced”. so, based on research and educated opinion, i believe that the petekey fling started in 04.

then, the next summer both bands were again picked for warped, which only intnsified the relationship. after weeks of spending excessive time with each other and attending each others shows, the media took notice. in an interview that summer, when asked about it he responded “me and pete wentz arent dating. we are both heterosexual males… sort of… maybe… umm… next!”. on may 16, 2005 mikey was spotted at a fueled by ramen show watching fob at house of blues wearing a white jacket that allegedly belonged to pete. a few days later, pete posted a list on live journal of things that get him hot and bothered. on taht list were a.having a crush on a person i speak to nearly every day and b.white denim jackets….

on tuesday, june 28, 2005, pete posted the following on livejournal: “Amazing New Mexico sunset. im hanging on a bridge with my friend mikey from my chem. its all orange and pink above us. we went to another water park again. i love high fives again. totally back in love.” on july fourth he posted an entry that ended with “hot and miserable but totally back in love”. on july 15 he posted “Though I am over hearing your thoughts on haircuts and pants. I’m over us trying to be perfect tens for your little eyes. We don’t care what you think of us. Listen to a song and time your heartbeat. Let it be okay to fall asleep slow tonight. Think about a good friend. Think about god. Think about death. Think about someone elses hand clumsily on your belt in the dark. Think it will be okay. No more rants. No more poetry. Not tonight. True love for the believers”. on july 17 he posted “wrote you a goodbye note (you just wrote me off) on your arm when you passed out. bestfriends, exfriends- better off as lovers not the other way around. racing through the city in the back of yellow checkered cars. the takeoffs are the worst but the skin from your shoulder to your ear makes it all worth it. and im sorry the way my moods flicker on and off like old light on your porch, but i know you wouldn’t have it any other way. sneaking in your window instead of out. the way you hold a cigarette cause you don’t know what to do with your hands when we are sitting this close. the way the waists of pants feel better at the ankles. the way you always were my best excuse for calling in sick on everyone else. i miss you”. which later became the song bang the doldrums, which was origionally titled summer of like (pete mentioned this in a rolling stones interview), which is now what fans call the relationship between pete and mikey in 05.

during that summer, fans claimed that mikey and pete didnt want to be photographed together, which is kind of suspicious…. but there are a few circulating the internet, and quite a few of mikey wearing clandestine (petes clothing line). at this time it was also common for fob and mcr to trade band members, mikey would play bass for fob so pete could take his mic into the crowd. pete also frequently watched mikey play with the stupidest smile on his face….

there are also fan reports of them being seen together. “ at my warped date i got there early in the morning and hung out by the fob bus because i wanted to get a pic with patrick and around 10 am the door opened and a very tired looking mikey stepped off with pete right behind him and they appeared to be holding hands until they saw the people around and they both refused to have their pictures taken together ”. and “during Fall Out Boy’s set (they were one of the closing bands that night) they dedicated one of the songs to Mikey, who was watching from the side of the stage. Pete said, “This song is about revenge. Right, Mikey? Revenge!” Mikey smiled and nodded, and during “Grand Theft Autumn/Where is Your Boy” he mouthed along to all the words.”

pete also posted at one point “i wish you were my bass, not just my friend”. on august 19 he posted “ Warped tour was fun. Since being home I remembered that showering and sleeping are fun too. My real feelings on the sunburst bass. I loved that thing. But then it started cheating on me with mikey way. I had to hit it. Its not my fault- spousal abuse is an ugly thing. I’m in therapy that includes playing lots of warcraft online. Writing messages on your arm for someone to see at a show is the new away message - stealing peoples real diary is the new livejournal”.

on september 4, pete posted “on the getaway car, the rush of blood to the head: it’s strange to find myself again back at the feelings of the blue cover after going through the red and the gold. its kind of always like that. i am sorry if i am not making any sense. but everybody likes to take chances and make bets. i always put my money on the longshots. and no matter where my head was in the world i always dreamed of waking up next to the biggest brown eyes i have ever seen/’meandyouunderneaththehoneymoon’. “go back to what it meant back then”: and you imagine yourself moving deep into the summer and disappearing, and for me it was always with you. and then things got crazy. you stopped calling me back. i stopped trying to call but not in my head. and then you got malicious but i’m guessing only because you learned from the best- take back your taste and all. i never thought it would be just me again. but that’s okay. we’re gonna hole up and wait it out. i feel like i can see for the first time, like i was born just in the last minute. wake me up. baby boy, you’re gonna be okay. hearts between our knees sticking to the summer sheets. are you catching my drift…. its gonna be alright. your love would be hell but its just not hot enough baby.” (Note… baby BOY)

after petes nudes were leaked, hey chris wrote him a public letter which contained the following: “you know the friends i have and you know how we feel about loyalty. you know who im talking about and you know they’re not happy either.” and shortly after chris posted pic of him and mikey saying he’d “found new love”

the summer of 06, peter once again had some interesting things to say. on july 7 he posted “im so sorry, but not really. (‘straighten up and die right’) i said i want to be rebuilt like a frank lloyd wright only without all of the water damage. or painted over like a monet only less blurry. she said “no, youre something different”. like what? “something better”. it gave me the rush of warm blood like you see in cartoon dogs right before their eyes pop out and all of the bells go off. my head is spinning like a car off of an icy guardrail. show me what you are made of. your eyes were always rolling but youd tilt your head so they were somehow always still stuck on me (have your cake and eat it too). i feel safe but not like a bet more like the way mothers feel when the lock the car doors in bad neighborhoods. i am blue waves across the red rootlike veins in the bodies drawn flat in medical books. i wonder at the way that someone can write thousands and thousands of pages about my insides. when i met you i gave you a name- not your own- but in my head so i wouldnt ever mix you up with anyone so ordinary- i cant tell you- but to me it meant salvation. you only wanted reaction. but i cant be bothered. not anymore. ill see you in the spring. first pew on the left. wear your white veil and dont forget the words. warped tour. sun drenched days. bestfriends. new roads. so long salvation. dont worry your pretty little heads. i am sleeping safe tonight.” then the next day, on the 8th, he posted “the fraternal order of the handsome boy. ive been watching you from afar. my breath on the inside window as you walk in from the carcandy caned lies in red and white against clashing patterns bending in and out of understanding. ”youre the stranger ive been dreaming of”, stranger than any ive ever known. love through a telescopic lens. when the air is clear i can see how perfect you are for me. late at night when the city sleeps i cast a spell on you to make you think of me the very same way i think of you. i only love how the words feel in my head when i write them. fireworks over the valley. how can i tell you i gut people for a living. that everything you say is likely to end up as evidence when i rewrite history. over and over again. how everything you do reminds me of something else, someone else. how i get paid to be humble and arrogant at the same time,to be chased and never caught. that i just want to stay up late and wake up early to talk to you. that i want to show you all of my jealousy and insecurity and have you not care. youre like a light switch and i just want to turn you on and watch them all shrink away. the words come out of my fingertips on impulse. it is instinct. my head cant keep up. i envy the comatose. i admire the bedridden. i am addicted to the way i feel when i think of you. ”im blowing smoke rings around the moon….” i wish i was the exact opposite of how the world knows me.”

then, there is infinity on high, which is basically completely about mikey (especially bang the doldrums, because it was born on live journal right after that summer of like…) and ab/ap, due to the constant reiteration of a past love, my favorite being fourth of july with “you are my favorite what if, you are my best i’ll never know”

also othe fact that neither of them can hold a true relationship with women without it ending badly. perhaps because there is someone out there that they are simply destined to be with…. 


so yeah. pete wentz writes a lot of his music about mikey way.

Ship war au!

IT IS DONNNNNNE! Hi everyone, Mr.E here with a new story. So in case you hadn’t heard, @moringmark came up with an awesome au and i highly recommend you go read his comics to find out. in general really go read his stuff.  In short Jackie and Marco’s child named Jam and Star and Marco’s child Elizabeth come back from two different futures to make sure they are born. Jarco and Starco child are at ends with each other. I wanted to write a story for this epic au and i also pitched some ideas to moringmark about oc love interests for the two because PEOPLE KEEP PAIRING THEM TOGETHER! I’m sorry bu they are half siblings. no, just no. in any case i tried my best to give them love interests to better suit everyones shipping needs. Elizabeth’s best friend from the future Dart who is a gentlemanly teen who believes in standing up for those who can’t and Jelly, a present day girl who is a little dazed but heavily into conspiracies. I’ll write more stories, throw more time travel goodness in there *coughnova* and all that jazz but for now it’s time to give the spot light to moringmark’s amazingly well crafted ocs. I hope you and everyone else enjoys them

I really hope you will enjoy it - and thank you so much again for your kind words! ❤️


Tell me why

She had seen him picking his way out from among the graves the war against the Saviors had left them with, and waited until he hit the street, his eyes still downcast, his long hair hiding his face. He was dragging his feet, his shoulders were slumping, and he never raised his head until he nearly ran into her, but saw her booted feet in front of him just in time.

They were all exhausted and running on fumes, and it showed. Bruises, bandages, dark shadows under sunken, bloodshot eyes, were everywhere, no exceptions. They were all shuffling about like walkers themselves, with the latest battle only two days in the past. What they would all have needed, Carol thought, was a two month vacation in the world as it had been before the Turn.

Then again, she corrected herself, remembering Ed and Merle, maybe not.

His weary eyes flickered over her and then away again in an instant as he saw the same signs of exhaustion on her that he himself was showing. He was slow to react meaningfully to seeing her, and when he did, it was just to look away some more and mumble, “Sorry you had ta be here for this. Never meant for -” He vaguely waved a hand back in the direction of the graves and winced as if in pain, and when she wondered about this, she remembered that he’d been shot in the shoulder the day she had left Alexandria to get away from it all - not that he himself had ever told her.

Not that he himself had told her anything about what had happened to this place, to the people living in it, since she had left Alexandria that night, before sunrise, leaving only a letter to explain why she was going.

A virtual stranger, if a well-meaning one, had had to tell her about all of this.

Her eyes wandered over the many graves that had sprung up here since they had arrived. Maybe, she mused, these graves would be here anyway, even if they had never seen Alexandria, if Aaron and Eric had decided they were too feral a group to bring in.

And maybe they wouldn’t.

Maybe, if those two had sneaked away again after observing them for a few days, the Monroe family would still be alive. Or Denise. Or Jessie and her children and husband. As always when she thought of these things, in moments when she felt emotionally stable enough to do so, she braced herself for the pain of Sam, and as always it still hit her like a knife to her heart, twisting and cutting through her as if eviscerating her, leaving her gutted.

She thought back to Glenn’s grave in Hilltop, to the pocket watch that Maggie was carrying now, her family’s legacy, her heirloom, handed down through generations.

In her mind’s eye, she saw Daryl sitting at her table in that small house not far from the Kingdom, saying, “Everyone’s alright,” after hesitating just a little too long, and ducking his head just a little too much so she hadn’t been able to see his eyes - and with the light of the fire the only light in the room, it was doubtful if she would seen confirmation there, even though she had been certain even then.

Certain that he was lying to her.

She’d had a vague, nagging suspicion, she’d been certain there was something he was leaving out - but not until she’d talked to Morgan had she known that he hadn’t just omitted something but outright been lying to her by telling her that everyone was okay and they had reached a peaceful agreement with the sociopath subjugating all the communities within reach.

He had lied about Abe, about Glenn, and about himself.

About a good friend and a member of their family getting beaten to death, about Maggie being turned into a widow within seconds of Daryl jumping up and attacking Negan to protect Rosite. Had not told her about getting taken, locked up, and probably hurt while he’d been with the Saviors, on top of receiving a gunshot wound to his shoulder so Dwight could take him and Rosita without facing resistance.

“Why?”

Her voice was soft, free of any hint of accusation, yet he blushed - and understood immediately what she was referring to, even though neither of them had addressed his visit to her lonely house on the edges of the Kingdom.

“You wanna do this now?”

The sorrow in his voice almost broke her, but she nodded. In order to be able to move on, she needed all loose ends dealt with, and Daryl lying to her about anything, let alone something so huge, was definitely a loose end, and one she could no longer ignore, with the life or death issues handled for now.

Very slowly, Daryl started walking, moving past her without touching her. She saw his jaw muscles clenching. Although he remained silent and never even looked at her, she took his cue and followed him, matching his pace. When they reached one of the elevated guard platforms, he climbed the ladder, slowly, as if carrying a huge weight, and then slumped over the wall looking out, waiting until she joined him.

“You weren’t ready, back then.”

His voice sounded rough and exhausted. He still wasn’t looking at her. Now, instead of gnawing on his lip or the inside of his cheek, he was worrying the skin around his fingernails. His left thumb already had an angry red groove running parallel to his nail, filling with blood. He absentmindedly flicked the bit of skin he’d just ripped off over the wall and started in on the next finger.

Carol thought of taking his hand so he’d stop, but thought better of it. While he was this agitated, he never took touch well. Instead, she stood next to him and they both watched the tendrils of morning mist still hanging over the meadow outside burning away as the sun rose over the horizon. When the air started getting warmer, Carol slipped out of her padded jacket and hung it from one of the guard platform’s support posts. She didn’t speak - she knew that he would need time for this, with or without prompting.

When the sun was fully out, a perfect orange ball behind the screen of fog shrouding it, he cleared his throat.

“Said you’d had to leave Alexandria. ‘n’ before that, you were so … distant. After those assholes took you ‘n’ Maggie was the first time you admitted you were not okay, ‘n’ then you left.” Again, he struggled with the idea of her leaving Alexandria, her family, him, and it took him a while until he managed to go on. “And when you opened that door, after bein’ gone for, what, little more than a week?” He glanced her way, and in his eyes, she saw the weight of yet another failure he was shouldering. “You looked … I dunno … rested? More … relaxed?”

Heaving in a breath, he looked out over the meadow once more. It was hard to imagine that, not so long before, it had been teeming with walkers and, more recently, with live enemies consciously trying to kill all of them. She dragged her mind away from those memories - she still didn’t feel solid enough in her mind yet to process them. Daryl, she noted, had been silent while she had been musing quietly, and started speaking again only when he knew she was fully present again.

“You needed the rest, you needed … time off from bein’ responsible for everyone, so … I wanted you to have more of that. And if I had told you the truth -”

His voice broke, and she was shocked to see a tear dripping directly from his eyes onto his left hand, resting on the handhold of their platform.

“If I had told you what happened -”

He was unable to continue for at least a minute as he fought for control.

She knew, from everyone who had been there, that it had been Daryl’s reaction to Negan’s actions that had prompted Glenn’s death, and Daryl, being who he was, was putting all the blame on himself, of course. Patiently, Carol waited for Daryl to calm down and continue, and finally, he did.

“You’d said you’d lose yourself if you had to kill again, and … You’re too important, I just …”

He sounded as if he was admitting defeat. He’d been holding his breath and exhaled in a rush following this confession, giving her a pleading look.

“I don’t care, you’re worth more to me than anyone else, and I just couldn’t risk you. Anyone else, yes. Myself, yes. But you?”

He shook his head, and his eyes told her that he wasn’t sorry for lying. He was sorry for stating so blatantly that other lives, including his own, were worth so much less to him, compared to hers, but not for feeling that way, and acting accordingly.

Protecting her.

At the expense of lying to her, for the very first time ever, and risking lives as a result. Daryl, who never lied to anyone, and would rather die than not defend and protect people who needed his help.

Closing her eyes, she felt tears pricking her eyelids, and a hot pain in her chest. I couldn’t risk you. Anyone else, yes. Myself, yes. But you? His words hit home as the magnitude of their meaning kept unfolding. Nobody had ever felt this way about her, had made her his absolute priority like this, and she felt humbled and elated all at once.

She wanted to argue, to list the names of the other members of their family, the people who had been fighting for survival by their side for almost three years now - but the words died on her lips when she saw his eyes, filled with guilt and love. He knew what he was saying, and he was still saying it. Anyone else, yes. But you?

Overwhelmed by his love for her and her own fierce love for him, she did reach for his hand now, resting her own on top of his, and his thumb came up to gently rub her pinkie once, twice, before he raised his arm, still holding her hand, and carefully turned her sideways while he himself also turned to face her.

“C’m here,” he mumbled, and the world around them disappeared as they leaned into each other, two weary warriors finding strength and love in each other.

The "coming out" story

I’ll admit, I don’t exactly know where to start with this but as I’m sure y'all are aware of, I’m gay. A true blue homosexual.

I am much more moderate on where my sexuality lies in place of my life. I don’t believe it’s a part of my personality, but I think, for me, it definitely just isn’t an aspect of my life as arbitrary as my hair color or race. I think there’s definitely a part of my life that is affected by it so it in some way, it is a part of me. But, yes, at the end of the day, it’s what I am. Not who I am.

So, as I sit here poking at this tiny ass keypad on my phone at nearly midnight, I’m musing on how exactly I came out. To be honest, I never really did.

I was the “odd child,” like every television faggot-to-be. I liked acting and singing and art. I got along much better with the girls than the boys. I was squeamish, frail, and not very assertive. And so, as middle school came around, I was like the last one to find out I was gay.

I remember, in particular, in the seventh grade, the first time I ever mentioned a guy was hot to my lunch table, everyone was shocked that I was talking about it. I was like “lmaooooo I already told you guys I was bi weeks ago” (lies on all fronts).

It was a big deal and made waves at school. I think it was like 2012. It was still rumor until maybe the end of eighth grade. I actually remember on the VERY last day of my eighth grade year, I told two random strangers. I forget why. They were unnerved but probably because I was THE first gay (at this point I had come out as homosexual) they’d met besides Ellen. I didn’t know anyone who was gay besides Ellen besides maybe one of my friends!

Freshman year, I remember telling these two girls in my gym class. I was quickly slipping from my EXCEPTIONALLY effeminate nature. Still I wasn’t and still am not masculine. I was the token gay dude. All the gay people were edgy teenage lesbians. At this point it was VERRRRRY well known. I had found out there was only one other out gay dude at my high school asides for a senior who had graduated as I came into high school. I think there may have been a few others on the down-low.

Regardless, I was one of two out people on campus. The other was a heavy introvert, leaving me to fend for myself.

And… It was fine. I had a loooot of people come back to me like “EG, rumors are coming around that you’re ACTUALLY gay.” I still didn’t exactly hide it too well and I definitely still don’t. To this day, I’ve yet to be bullied for my sexuality.

I dipped my toes and plunged into Social Justice because that’s all who, at the time, were talking about gay rights. In freshman year I came out publicly with a slam poem to my English class. I thought that’s what I was supposed to do. Something impactful. And then, I was absorbed into the rest of social justice. As Sophomore year passed, I still was a total Social Justice acolyte but by that summer, I dropped it. I remember I dropped feminism first.

I’m still just different, but that’s okay.

Nowadays, it’s still very well known (I have it on good word the faculty has, more than once, murmured about it) I’m a gay guy. I kind of hate to talk about it with my teachers. Maybe it’s for fear of predetermined judgments because, well, there’s a huge stereotype that gay guys are all hardcore socjus democrats as I once WAS. The only time people really talk about it is when the occasional “jockish” type has a oddly specific question (…ehhhhhh) or when I or someone else makes a joke about it. Though, most of the girls seem to think that because of I’m gay, I instantly am indifferent to them talking about their periods or which guys I think are cute. The former is EXTREMELY common. Such is my cross to bear, lol.

I never did come out to my parents. They both know, really. My mom chooses to avoid the topic and my dad, I think, ignores it or thought I phased past it. I don’t necessarily need their approval but I think everyone would love for their parents to do so, anyway. You know, one day, I’d like to have a guy be able to meet them. Of course, I’d probably have another moment like I did at the lunch table in the seventh grade.

Perhaps my frail body and strange, incessant vicarious perspective on the world made me rewire a few brain circuits and my desire to be like the muscular guys on TV turned into some infatuation, or maybe it was completely by nature. Regardless, I’m not uncomfortable for what I am or, yeah, who I am.

So there it is. My gay part or life scrawled out on a shitty tumblr post that I typed on my phone.

Four Little Words

Tony/Steve/Bucky

Summary: Tony and Steve ask Bucky to explain what the tickling community is.

A/N: I’m so proud of this fic. So, so proud of this fic.

This was created when an anon suggested I use Stuckony for this one idea I had where I didn’t know what characters to use for.

Words: 2 808

“I want to understand this whole tickling thing and its community better.”

Bucky nearly had a heart attack when he heard those words. “You- what?”

Tony repeated himself, but Bucky didn’t panic any less the second time. “I know it’s a huge part of your life, and I just want to understand it more.”

“If you want to tell us, that is,” Steve added.

Bucky, quite frankly, didn’t know what to say. Ever since he’d told them about his little liking a week prior he’d refused to ever say anything similar to those words again. He’d been lucky that they’d accepted him without question, and they did tickle him a little more now, but he’d never thought his two boyfriends would want to know more. To be honest he wasn’t really sure how to explain it all either.

He shifted awkwardly where he was sitting on their bed. “What do you want to know?”

Naruto Ending

Okay, I got a message from an anon that I had a really long reply too, BUT IT DIDN’T SAVE AND NOW THE MESSAGE DISAPPEARED SO I AM ANGRY TYPING. But anyway….

The message: Basically, the person thought that the ending wasn’t so bad and that they think the movie will help explain things, and they were curious to know how I felt the series should have ended.

My response: I’ve reread 700 a few times and have had time to calm down since then. I still think it's horrible, but I don’t hate it as much as the first time I read it. It’s sad because I’m trying so hard to like it and make justifications for it. My heart melted when I saw Naruto as a dad, and how his son acts just like he did when he was younger to try and get his attention. I think the kids are bizarrely cute, even though the designs themselves are terrible. A part of me wanted to start shipping Naruto’s son and Sasuke’s daughter right away despite being disgusted with the implications for how they were basically SasuNaru 2.0, except okay in everyone’s eyes now because they’re hetero. Despite all these attempts to make myself feel better, I can’t ignore the fact that the last chapter was a slap in the face to all those years of character and story development.

I consider the movies to be extended fillers and not canon, but I do think you’re right in that the new movie will try to fill in some gaps between 699 and 700; however, I don’t think it will be able to address everything adequately, and I think that mangas should be able to stand on their own.

I’ve briefly mentioned what I felt would have been suitable endings here. Basically, I didn’t think Sasuke would ever be able to patch things up with Konoha. Neither are known to be particularly forgiving. The only person who would really be able to accept Sasuke, and whom Sasuke would accept, would be Naruto. The others would never be able to see Sasuke the same ever again. I expected Sasuke to go traveling around the world (perhaps with Naruto for a while), or to live away from Konoha and watch the world from afar to help Naruto. 

  • Sasuke’s ending in the manga kind of fit my expectations actually, since he left Konoha in 699 and appeared to still be wandering the world in 700. The incoherence lies in his relationship with Sakura, but I’ll get to that later.
  • I expected hints of a possible blooming relationship between Naruto and Hinata or Naruto and Sakura. Key word: hints. I did not expect them to get together and make babies. I did not expect everyone to get together and make babies. That is one of my main issues with the ending. It seemed very unnecessary and since it’s obvious that it was so that there could be a generation of same-age ninjas for spin-off series, it made any sentiment from the last chapter seem very cheap. I mean, considering the fact that most of the older generation (e.g. Kakashi, Iruka, Guy, Anko), were doing just fine without explicitly being shown in a relationship or with children, Naruto’s generation seems pretty ridiculous. I guess they’re post-war baby boomers.
  • Shikamaru and Temari would be together, with or without children, depending on how long it’s been. Temari would boss Shikamaru around. Shikamaru would of course be shown as Naruto’s advisor.
  • Sai would continue to be mostly asexual, happy that he has close relationships with his friends.
  • Ino may or may not be with someone.
  • Chouji may or may not be with someone. It’s not the specific pairings themselves that bothered me (other than Sai, because I felt like that was off), but more the fact that everyone had to be shown paired up with someone.
  • InoShikaChou would be shown visiting Inoichi, Shikaku and Asuma’s graves, along with Kurenai and her grown-up son/daughter.
  • Kakashi and Guy would be shown keeping each other company and continuing their usual antics of sparring/competing with one another.
  • Hinata would be visiting Neji’s grave.

Now let me backtrack a bit. The more I had time to reflect on my emotions, the more I realized that what really upset me about the ending was what happened to Sakura. After Sasuke’s scene with Sakura at the gate in 699, I felt gross. I was appalled by the violence that was done to Sakura’s character, and I don’t even mean from Sasuke.

For the people who think that some of us are shitting on the ending just because our OTP didn’t become canon, let me just say that SasuSaku could have been made to work for me (though I know it wouldn’t for others), but not like that. Not at the sacrifice of Sakura’s integrity as a character. She reverted back to pre-adolescent and superficial Sakura and I was horrified. SasuSaku could have worked with time. Lots and lots of time to repair the damage. The way I imagine it, Sasuke would continue traveling around the world and Sakura would continue being a badass medical ninja, training new ones. As they get much older and see the younger generation growing up, their views of the world and what’s important might change, and they might consider giving themselves a try. They might even be old and wrinkly before they decide that they would like each other’s company in old age. They would NOT be banging 3 years after the war and making babies.

The way I see it, many many MANY more years of this:

And NONE OF THIS:

I still can’t believe these two scenes were from the same chapter. Sakura deserved better respect as a character in her own right and not as a plot device for these boys.

Please reccomend some drarry smut!

Okay!! First, check the masterlist cause there’s lots of smut there, sorted by type. But it’s been a couple months, and this fandom being as awesome as it is, I’ve got some excellent new smut to recommend, some more PWP-ish, others plottier but with excellent smut in the mix. And please remember to leave comments and kudos for the authors! If you think it’s hard or a little embarrassing to leave a comment on smut, think about those authors who were writing it, yeah?

Drarry Recs: Smut

An Aching Soul by writcraft - NC-17, 15k - I can’t help but wonder if Potter’s really as fine as he claims to be. There’s something strange about seeing the vanilla hero of the wizarding world eye-fucking someone across a crowded bar before slipping off into the shadows - Draco Malfoy escapes to the Muggle world to avoid his parents, memories of the war and Harry Potter. However, some things prove harder to escape than others as Draco realises when his favourite Muggle haunt is rudely invaded by a post-war Harry who is struggling to cope with grief, growing up and the battle with his inner demons.

Another Mask Behind You by lettered - NC-17, 116.5k - Draco is a high-end prostitute who hides his identity.  Harry unknowingly hires him.  And then there is porn, questions about identity, domestic bliss, more porn, and truth as seen through a web of lies.

Draco at Nineteen by birdsofshore - NC-17, 5k - It’s the middle of the night and Harry Potter is sitting on my bed looking distinctly weird. I’ve had some fucked-up dreams in my time, but this one… this one is something new.

Endowment by dicta_contrion - NC-17, 11k - Potter has got under my skin for far too long, in far too many ways. I fully intend to return the favour.

For Revenge by gracerene - NC-17, 2.5k - Draco gets revenge. Harry doesn’t mind so much. (Part of grace’s deliciously smutty 50 Reasons to Have Sex series)

If You Want To Go Faster by barefacedbandit/cryptonym - NC-17, 4k - It’s all or nothing with him. Which is a problem for me, since he’s decided to give me nothing. Not a sound. Not a whisper of a sound. Bastard. 

It’s the Love of the Chase (That Created the Ride) by lumosed_quill - NC-17, 14k - Draco and Harry are new Auror partners. It’s a bit dull. Until they finally see some spell action and things get a lot more interesting (in Draco’s pants).

Love your curves (and all your edges) by bloodisshrp/panicparade - NC-17, 4k - Draco isn’t sure how he feels about Harry’s new gift.

The Page Eleven Wars by fireflavored - NC-17, 8.5k - In a gossip-hungry post-war Wizarding World, Rita Skeeter has a wildly successful column in the Daily Prophet known as Page Eleven. Naturally, her favourite targets are the poster boys of the two sides of the war: Draco Malfoy and Harry Potter. Bored and annoyed, the two take up tabloid baiting for sport and pleasure.

Unknown Pleasures by birdsofshore - NC-17, 10.5k - The Room of Requirement was definitely broken. Why else would it be presenting Harry with a whip, some handcuffs, a blindfold, and a… what exactly was that thing, anyway?

The Wand by faithwood - NC-17, 1.5k - Something’s not right with Draco’s wand.

TV ANON HERE

I CANT SEND ALL OF THIS ON THE ASKS SO IM SUBMITTING, CAN YOU KEEP ME ON ANON, I HAVE TO STAY LOW KEY FOR MY JOB, PLEASE? SORRY FOR THE MESS!

Labels sell you a narrative, a story of the artist. If they have to change all their story of life, they will do it and the artist can’t do anything about it if there are under a contract.

We all know 5h media narrative: 5h a group form in the x factor with a similar story than 1D. 5 multicultural girls with raw talents and amazing personalities took over the world with their girl power and catchy singles lead by camila cabello. A girl who caught the spotlight with her celebrity friendships and solo works making clear, several times, that the group has an expiration date. After an EP, 2 album, 2 hits and several awards, Cabello made the not unexpected but rush exit from the group, in a she said/they said fight, to follow her solo career leaving the bad future on hold.

This is basically what someone who read a magazine or watch a tv show can tell you about the group if they don’t really follow them but you guys who follow your group knows there’s a lot more, isn’t it?

The media has photos and sources so why not to believe them right? But then, everything you saw in all these years were lies? Those moments didn’t happen? Oh, everything happened, but all this big gossip you hear 24/7 eclipse every moment/ interview that could make you questions everything. So let me remain you some important and curious things that were never really in the media (sorry if you think I focus only in lauren and camila but they are the key pieces of this puzzle)

Lauren was the leader for the show/EP but for the album was Camila (why? Lauren stated being emotional broken during these years, so im guessing she couldn’t handle it) DON’T LET THEM FOOL YOU, LAUREN HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE FIRST CHOICE, THEY JUST HAVE TO GET HER READY.

Takeovers ended when Camila solo behavior it was going to start, weird right? But Camila’s 18 birthday was something amazing with that Taylor party but how about the party the girls/crew made for her in the worth it video set? We just got a vaguely photo but where are the rest? These social media queens didn’t post one photo! The only one out is from a crew member.

It shocks me than no one has made big noise with Camila’s and even ally’s declarations of mental issue during 2015. Really guys? They all became legal that year, the image started to change. And while you were criticizing camila’s mother being with her 24/7, I hope you realized she didn’t do that while she was under age (she was with her some weeks and then returned home) but the moment she turned 18 she stayed with her. An once again, where in the media is camila’s declaration of “songwriting saved my life” or the disturbing image she posted with the caption “I could finally breathe”

During 2015 interviews lauren and camila shade their own album. (TB to that interview where the girls give Dinah a bad look for saying body rock was her favorite) I truly believe Lauren and camila had given the label/MGMT some work with damage control with some declarations and behaviors. And let’s state that this could lead to punishments.

Or what about all these rumors of the girls hating camila but we have all this fan/the girls/ crew videos of the girls being chill with each other (specially in other countries) And let’s not forget how camila stopped posting 5h photos on her accounts and talking about them but some days before her exit, she posted a photo of the girls (AMA’S) she liked all this WFH comments and made some deep interviews (z100 NY).

Let’s be clear in something. 5h promo has always being really bad and all of the girls sucked at promoting too but THAT’S NOT THEIR JOB (I get you guys saw camila promoting her singles like crazy but not 5h, well maybe it’s because it’s her own music, her own words – just like lauren has said this days while she promotes her single like camila did twice)

 Now, once again, this is not my topic so im giving an opinion here. Why epic don’t invest in 5h? (promo/tours/budget) Well, girl bands are expensive and keeping the girls low budget has made the label not lose money (unfortunately, 5h last album is not doing as well as they thought). A third album it was the moment to make it big (with songs/ wardrobe/ tour) so why you let your “lead singer” go? Camila IS STILL in Epic, they could make her stay.

So this fuel that they just want Camila solo and they are gonna drop the group. But this is when it gets interesting, Simon always has wanted the group and LA REID has made of 5h a bootcamp to prepare solo girls! ALL OF THEM! That’s why they have let them do solo work (but they decide the time and the project of course) Lauren solo is on the go, giving her more camera all this year, making camila aside in the 5h image.

This is when I get wild and drop the bomb. (THIS WAS MEANT TO HAPPEN ONE WAY OR THE OTHER AND THE 5 OF THEM DON’T HAVE A SAY IN THIS CAUSE, ONCE AGAIN, THEY ARE UNDER CONTRACT, WITH THIS CAMILA HAS TO FIGHT ON HER OWN) They have known this plans all along (THIS IS NOT THE GIRLS VS CAMILA IS GIRLS VS THE LABEL), and that’s why they girls got a new lawyer! A lawsuit against Epic wouldn’t be weird cause they have been neglecting the girls for years with the lack of support (I don’t get SYCO in this cause they are their label overseas and they have done their job) Now, Syco wants them so they could make the move to offer them a record deal with RCA and everyone could be happy except LA REID losing her solo projects. (Also, Republic records has been on the picture with the girls for a while)

Now, we could say camila is okay with her deal, she’s out 5h and has her solo project but Roger Gold appearing makes me doubt Camila’s desire to stay in Epic. The guy has an AMAZING resume. Attorney/CEO/consultant and a major supporter on independent labels, and guess what? HE HAS AN INDEPENDENT LABEL. If you analyze Camila’s way of expressing about him, he’s family, she feels protected. Im putting all my coins that he’s taking her out of this shitty deal to put her in his label/with the option of an association with another label.

I don’t get people who say Canadian politics is boring like wtf are you talking about: 

  • Our most successful PM was seriously into the occult and paid mediums to talk to his dead mother and dead dogs all of whom were named Pat [Pat I Pat II and Pat III] he also tried to talk to Leonardo Di Vinci 
  • During World War II Canadian forces, supplies and military connections were very important so both Churchill and FDR had to keep Mackenzie King a for mentioned PM happy but they both disliked him so they literally bitched about him to each other - King didn’t care all he wanted was the photo-op because that was his reelection - King only cared about winning 
  • Mackenzie King this dude alone is a riot okay, was in power long enough to cause one of the biggest constitutional crises in the commonwealth, not just Canada but the fucking commonwealth- but because of the dairies he kept all the crap he did came out,including the fact he believed in the occult, when he was alive know one knew it was his fault or that he was wacko 
  • King basically resigned when he was called out for corruption (he was corrupt baby) and so Canada didn’t have a PM for a bit (he got back into office through some shady moves and an election full of lies)
  • One of the turning points of a federal election was a picture that showed a possible PM looking nonathletic despite being an all star athlete 
  • Pierre Elliot Trudeau the man that created the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, brought home the constitution, also had a period of mass hysteria surrounding him called Trudeaumania - John Lennon himself admired Trudeau
  • Pierre though turned out to  be a bit of an egomaniac and an asshole to a lot of people - Alberta hated him big time
  • Trudeau’s wife, who was 20 something years younger than him left him while he was in office and started dating members of the rolling stones, and a Kennedy - big embarrassment for Trudeau who had to raise three kids on his own, one of whom becomes the PM himself (he didn’t do so bad as it turns out) 
  • Literally everything Pierre Trudeau did was entertaining af - he jumped on trampolines, danced infront of/disrespected the Queen, told people off, humiliated Alberta government officials like this dude was a straight up hippie at times, which was why he was elected the first time tbh 
  • Trudeau was also the only western leader to be friends with Castro - he did it in part to piss of the Americans (who did loss their shit) but Castro did end up Trudeau’s funeral 
  • We have had PM’s that lasted only a couple months - or days 
  • One of our PM wrote a book on Hockey and was a Hockey expert - idc what the rest of the world thinks that’s interesting k 
  • The same PM also had a picture done of him (not with permission but still) nude and it hung in a public library for a month - the PM’s response was he was a cat person not a dog person as it depicted him with a dog not a cat [its Harper okay I know why would someone paint him nude in the first place?]
  • In 2008 a separatist movement  was days away from getting significant power in federal government because the liberals and the NDP hated Harper so much - they joined forces with literal separatists
  • Canada has had a multiple separatist crises, but we just joke about it, the damn Quebecquers but they still to this day reelect separatist party members - Canada is basically divided between English Canada and French Canada - politics around this rivalry are intense 
  • Our first ever PM was a notorious alcoholic but he is beloved 
  • We have had a Noble Prize Winner as PM  
  • Our Party politics are notoriously sneaky, during 2008 the world economy was diving and newly elected PM Harper used that as a chance to try and destroy the liberal party - he almost lost his PMship post over it 
  • Plus inter-province rivalries are insane, the west hates Ontario and Quebec because they think they are the center of the world, and Ontario and Quebec hate each other and everyone else because we have to act like we are the center of the world + no one gives a shit about the territories 
  • A former conservative prime minster was rescued by a prominent liberal when he almost drowned in Barbados (where they both vacationed) his response was outrage at being saved by a liberal 
  • Currently our PM known for being hot and taking selfies but he elbowed someone during a parliament session ~ elbow gate
  • But truly Canadian politics is a blood sport - its party versus opposition, unlike the US you are facing off against your opponent on everything, all during the year
  • inter party rivalries are intense too - Stephen Harper formed the current conservative party by stabbing his own mentor in the back metaphorically speaking
  • Cretian ran again for PM partly to spite Paul Martin who had been trying to become liberal leader BTW Party discipline is the strongest in Canada so doing this is a major political risk

Dude this is barely half the shit that goes on in Canadian politics like, its hell of a lot more interesting than people give it credit for, but more importantly Canadians you should pay attention because it does affect you, and at times the rest of the world.
