After reading enough Fenders fics where the two of them become closer and gradually learn to ‘compromise’ with each other regarding Mage Rights…
Well, here’s how I think that conversation would really happen.
Anders: You know Fenris, I’ve been thinking… Fenris: Really? Anders: You’re right about something. Civilians do need to have some protection from rogue mages. After all, it’s not like being a mage is any insurance against being a criminal. Fenris: This is so, so, so very true. Anders: So I was thinking, maybe there should be some members of each city Guard who are specialized in investigating magical crimes or fighting magical criminals. Maybe each city guard should keep a couple of specially trained mages on staff. After all, mages can counter other mage’s spells, break blood magic compulsions and reliably test for demonic possession, in addition to being the most knowledgeable about types of magic that could be used in crimes. Fenris: …Isn’t there already an organization devoted to doing that? Why not just keep the Templars around? Anders: No, no, not Templars. The Templars are awful. We should absolutely not keep a separate organization that considers it a religious duty to persecute mages. I mean just members of ordinary peacekeeping forces. Fenris: But shouldn’t the mages all be kept in one place for their own good? I mean obviously in some place with better conditions than the current Circle. Anders: No, indefinite internment without cause is an injustice that is inherently too subject to abuse. Freedom is a fundamental right that should not be abridged. Fenris: Don’t you think that mages should at least be registered and tracked by a central organization with phylacteries or something similar, so they can be quickly found when they do commit crimes? Anders: No, because that’s a gross violation of privacy and dehumanizing assumption of criminal intent. Fenris: What about special laws restricting use of magic and especially heavy punishments for mages who break them? Anders: I don’t think so. I mean there’s already laws against murder or harm, it shouldn’t really make a difference whether the weapon is a spell or a sword. Fenris: You are kind of terrible at this ‘compromise’ thing. Anders: Am I?
Pairing: Dylan x reader Word count: 2,267 Warnings: none x
A/N: Hii! This imagine is literally about my two favorite things in the world: music and Dylan, so I thought “why the hell not?” Plus, I decided to write in first person rather than using “you”, hope you guys don’t mind, I just find it more realistic. Enjoy, lovelies, and feedback is really appreciated! x
They told me I could perform a song in their pub. My very first performance.
How was I supposed to keep it together? I was going to play in front of I don’t even know how many people. Since it’s a saturday night it’s probably going to be packed. Fuck, I didn’t think of that. What a great idea. What did I get myself into? Whatever, I had to start with something anyway.
Something crossed my mind… What was I going to sing? Damn it. I started to think about the songs that I knew but literally nothing came to my head so I took my phone out and scrolled through the various artists and playlists while lying on the couch in the living room.
Me rehùso, Ginza, Hasta El Amanecer… well, okay, definitely nothing spanish, I can’t even pronounce the words, what’s the point?
Leap of Faith, Rosalita, Sad Eyes… yeah, nothing by Bruce Springsteen either: he’s a man, I can’t reach those bloody notes. I was starting to get nervous so I called my trusty friend Abigail to help me choose. We basically have the same music tastes so everything she liked I would probably like too.
First of all, Fender “officially” stopped production of the Jazzmaster in 1978, but this one was built in ‘79 from older parts.
Cosmetically, it appears that arm wear turned into chipping at some point, which either spread out of control or was aided along by a previous owner, and it was eventually clear coated over. The finish that did remain was heavily yellowed, which you can see comparing it to both the finish under the pickguard and on the back.
I put the Mustang bridge on to help with string jumping - at the time, I didn’t think to just shim the neck higher, which also would have worked. I also put some proper 70′s vintage 3 spoke black knobs on (it came to me with incorrect white knobs). The volume pot’s post had one broken tine, so I used a half dowel to keep the knob firmly in place in order to avoid having to replace any part of the fully original electronics.
Also, this guitar was around or possibly over 10 lbs.
Pairing: You spend the day helping Mikey shop for Christmas gifts for his bandmates. But, the hardest person to shop for may be Mikey himself.
“Thanks for helping me do my Christmas shopping, Y/N,” Mikey
“No problem,” you smiled, stomping the snow off your boots
as you entered the comic book shop. You were looking for a gift for Gerard.
“My brother really loves Grant Morrison,” Mikey reminded, “so
let’s look for a comic that he did writing for.”
“Good idea,” you nodded. “Hey, isn’t that your brother’s
comic right there?” you asked, pointing at a copy of Doom Patrol on the shelf.
“It is!” Mikey grinned. “I’m so proud of him! Gerard and I
used to hang out at comic stores like this all the time as kids, so it’s crazy
to think that something he made is sitting in the DC section right next to our
“Hey, look, here’s an omnibus of Grant Morrison’s Doom Patrol run,” you pointed out. It
was a massively thick book, and it looked expensive.
“Wow, what a great find!” Mikey grinned. “Thanks, Y/N.”
“No problem,” you shrugged. “You sure you don’t want to get
something cheaper, though?”
“Sometimes I feel like you forgot I’m in a platinum-selling
band,” Mikey chuckled. “I got it covered, don’t worry.”
“I’m surprised nobody’s recognized you yet, and asked you
for a picture or something,” you confessed.
“While, I’m not as instantly recognizable as Gerard,” Mikey
shrugged. “It’s not like I’m the frontman.”
“True,” you considered as Mikey paid for the comic. “Where
“Next, we need something for Frank,” Mikey decided. “So, let’s
head to the record store.”
