anonymous asked:

can you please do headcanons for when harry proposes?? and their domestic life in general?? 😂😂❤❤❤

I am so ashamed, I have skirted this ask for so long. I’m so sorry, love. Here’s the proposal, and I’ll get around to posting some domestic fluff soon! (I hope.)  ❤️

The proposal:

- Harry buys the ring several months before actually doing it.
- He hides it all over their flat during those months while trying to decide how to go about doing it.
- Draco nearly finds the ring in the Coco Pops one morning (yes, they both still eat Coco Pops, they are 29 year old children, what’re you gonna do).
- Harry remembers at the last second that he’d hidden the ring in there three days earlier and before Draco knows what’s happening, the box of cereal is wrenched out of his hands and he’s being bent over the kitchen table (what follows is very NSFW).
- (And also, Draco has a slight limp for the rest of the day).
- Harry’s more careful after that (despite the spectacular fuck he managed to snag before breakfast in the course of ensuring Draco doesn’t find the ring).
- But he wants the proposal to be utterly brilliant.
- Because that slightly psychotic blond prat deserves the best (and also sort of expected nothing but).
- The longer he waits the more terrifying the whole prospect seems.
- He finally plans to do it on the day they complete five years together.
- He arranges for it to be perfect; he’s certain even Draco wouldn’t find a flaw.
- And then he ends up doing it completely out of the blue a week before the set date.
- They’re walking home from the pub and Draco is slightly tipsy and (uncharacteristically) very loud as he sways along next to Harry and sings (bellows) the Hogwarts school song. 
- Passersby stare a lot.
- Hell, Harry himself can’t get his eyes off Draco.
- Draco catches his eye and grins widely and kisses his scar. Before continuing with his braying.
- Harry’s nearly overwhelmed with how mindlessly in love with Draco he is.
- He suddenly knows there won’t be a more perfect moment. Because it didn’t even matter how/when he did it. 
- Stopping Draco with a hand around one pointy elbow of his, Harry shushes him quiet. Draco scowls for a second before his expressions turns into one of shock as Harry sinks onto one knee and pulls something shiny out of his pocket.
- Harry’s voice shakes a bit as he asks him. Draco seems to stop breathing altogether.
- And then Draco is hauling Harry up by his collar and calling him a dung-head and is kissing him shamelessly and rather wetly right there.
- Harry pulls back long enough to slip the ring onto Draco’s finger. And then he kisses Draco.
- They kiss for a very long time.
- Harry cries a little. Draco tells him to stop being a fucking baby.
- A week later they go on the date Harry had planned for the proposal. The  maître d’ discreetly gestures to Harry for the ring that he’d been told to place in Draco’s dessert. 
- Harry grins. And lifts Draco’s hand.
- “He said yes,” Harry informs him.
- “He caught me in a weak moment,” Draco adds.
- The  maître d’ can’t understand how two people can go from fiercely kicking one another under the table to fervently snogging across it in two seconds flat.

On this day in music history: July 7, 1977 - “The Grand Illusion”, the seventh album by Styx is released. Produced by Styx, it is recorded at Paragon Studios in Chicago, IL from Early - Mid 1977. Making significant headway since moving from Wooden Nickel/RCA Records to A&M in 1975, Styx head back into the studio at the beginning of 1977 in between tours to record their seventh studio release. With lead vocalist and keyboardist Dennis DeYoung leading the way, the band’s next album features five of the eight songs written or co-written by him. The tracks are bonded together by a loose concept of struggling “for meaning in life in an increasingly consumerist society”. The centerpiece of the album is the epic power ballad “Come Sail Away” (#8 Pop), a six minute plus long track that is split into two movements. Beginning as a gentle piano based ballad, it increases into a up tempo bombastic rocker led by DeYoung’s spirited lead vocal. The song is an immediate smash on rock radio, and though cut thoroughly in half when it is released as a single, “Come Sail Away” crosses over to Top 40 pop radio, and quickly becomes one of Styx’s signature songs.  The song is later parodied on the animated series “South Park” in the episode “Chef Aid” when it is sung by Eric Cartman (Trey Parker). Spinning off another single with the Tommy Shaw penned “Fooling Yourself (Angry Young Man)” (#29 Pop), “Illusion” provides the Chicago based rock band with their long awaited breakthrough. It becomes their most successful album to date and the first of five consecutive million or multi-million sellers. The LP’s now iconic cover artwork is painted by San Francisco based artists Alton Kelley and Stanley Mouse, best known for their famed album covers for Journey, The Steve Miller Band and The Grateful Dead. Kelley and Mouse base their cover art on the painting “Le Blanc-Seing” by Belgian surrealist artist René Magritte. Original press run copies of the LP come packaged with a 24" x 24" poster of the band. Originally released on CD in 1984, the album is remastered and reissued in 2008 as a SHM-CD in Japan. It is also remastered and reissued as a 180 gram vinyl LP by Friday Music in 2011, and a later reissue by UMe in 2015. “The Grand Illusion” peaks at number six on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified 3x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.

On this day in music history: July 13, 1993 - “Toni Braxton”, the debut album by Toni Braxton is released. Produced by Babyface, L.A. Reid, Daryl Simmons, Vassal Benford, Bo & McArthur, Toni Braxton, Vincent Herbert,  Ernesto Phillips and Tim & Ted, it is recorded at Studio LaCoCo, Doppler Studios, Bosstown Recording Studios in Atlanta, GA, Elumba Studios in Hollywood, CA, Encore Studios in Burbank, CA, Summa Studios in Los Angeles, CA, Central Studios in Bladensburg, MD and Newark Sound Studios in Newark, NJ from May 1992 - May 1993. Raised in a large strict religious family in the suburbs of Washington D.C., Toni Braxton grows up singing her local church choir, but aspires to sing secular music. Blessed with a distinctive, rich and sensual contralto voice, it won’t take long for the young singer to be noticed. The course of her future changes when she is overheard singing to herself while pumping gas at a station in Servern, MD. Bill Pettaway, Jr., the man who hears Toni singing, is a member of a band called Numarx (“Girl You Know It’s True”) and has ties to the music business. Through Pettaway, Toni and her sisters are signed to Arista in 1989, releasing the single “Good Love” in 1990. The single is a failure, but is heard by L.A. Reid and Babyface who are interested in signing Toni as a solo artist to their Arista distributed label LaFace Records. Initially hesitant to leave her sisters behind, they give her their blessing when they realize this is their older sisters’ opportunity to become successful. L.A. and Babyface first have Toni record “Love Should Have Brought You Home” (#2 R&B, #33 Pop) and “Give U My Heart” (duet with Babyface) (#2 R&B, #29 Pop) for the soundtrack of the Eddie Murphy comedy “Boomrang”. Both songs are major hits, thrusting Braxton into the spotlight and generating buzz for her first solo album. Spending an entire year in the studio with L.A. and Face and a number of other producers, Toni Braxton’s debut album is an immediate smash. Led by the single “Another Sad Love Song” (2 R&B, #7 Pop), it spins off a total of six singles also including “Breathe Again” (#4 R&B, #3 Pop) and “You Mean The World To Me” (#3 R&B, #7 Pop). The huge success of her debut quickly establishes Toni as one of the top female vocalists of the decade, selling over ten million copies worldwide. The album is nominated for four Grammy Awards, winning three including Best New Artist in 1994, and Best R&B Female Vocal Performance in both 1994 and 1995. “Toni Braxton” spends three weeks at number one (non-consecutive) on the Billboard R&B album chart, two weeks at number one (non-consecutive) on the Top 200, and is certified 5x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.

On this day in music history: June 25, 1966 - “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg” by The Temptations hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 8 weeks, also peaking at #13 on the Hot 100 on July 16, 1966. Written by Norman Whitfield and Eddie Holland, it is the third chart topping single for the legendary Motown vocal quintet. With The Temptations’ subsequent follow ups to the chart topping “My Girl” (It’s Growing" (#3 R&B, #18 Pop), “Since I Lost My Baby” (#4 R&B, #17 Pop), and “My Baby” (#14 R&B, #83 Pop) falling short of expectations on the pop charts, producer and songwriter Norman Whitfield is given the opportunity to produce a track for the group. Barely twenty five years old at the time, Whitfield is a highly talented writer and cocksure in his belief that he can provide The Tempts the hit they need. Writing with lyricist Eddie Holland, the pair come up with “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg”. The track is recorded on January 4, 1966 at Motown’s Studio A in Detroit with members of the Funk Brothers providing musical support. The Temptations overdub their vocals a week later on January 11, 1966. When it comes time for the finished song to be heard during Motown’s weekly Quality Control meetings, “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg” is initially initially rejected in favor of “Get Ready” which is also co-written and produced by Smokey Robinson. Disappointed, Whitfield goes back and cuts the track again, and is rejected a second time. Determined not to be turned down a third time, Whitfield is especially demanding on lead singer David Ruffin, pushing Ruffin to sing above his normal vocal range. By the time the vocal session wraps, the singer is drenched in sweat with his glasses fogged over and askew on his face. But the producer gets exactly the results he’s looking for. After hearing the third version of “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg”, and after “Get Ready” (#1 R&B, #29 Pop) performs disappointingly on the pop chart, Gordy approves the release of “Beg” as the follow up. Released on May 3, 1966, “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg” takes off like a rocket. Entering the R&B chart at #22  and #67 on the Hot 100 on May 28, 1966, it rises up both charts quickly. An instant classic, “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg” gives The Temptations their third R&B #1, and establishes Norman Whitfield as the groups main producer, a title he holds for the next eight and a half years. One of the most popular songs in the Motown catalog, “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg” is covered numerous times, including versions by Count Basie, Willie Bobo, The Rolling Stones, Rick Astley and Phil Collins. In 1985, David Ruffin and Eddie Kendricks record the song again as part of a live medley of Temptations classics with Daryl Hall & John Oates. The song is also featured in a memorable sequence in the film “The Big Chill” in 1983. “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg” is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.

On this day in music history: May 21, 1982 - “Hot Space”, the tenth album by Queen is released. Produced by Queen, Reinhold Mack, Arif Mardin and David Bowie, it is recorded at Mountain Studios in Montreux, Switzerland and Musicland Studios in Munich, Germany from June 1981 - March 1982. Coming off of the highly successful “The Game” and the soundtrack for “Flash Gordon”, Queen begin work on their next album. Having scored one of their biggest hits with “Another One Bites The Dust”, lead singer Freddie Mercury is interested in further exploring that musical territory. However, guitarist Brian May and Roger Taylor are both resistant to the idea, and abandoning their “no synthesizers” rule in spite of having used them on the two previous albums. The dance rock sound favored by Mercury is most pronounced on “Dancer”, “Staying Power” and “Body Language” (#11 Pop, #30 R&B, #62 Club Play). In the UK, response is lukewarm, but is better received in the US. The track features only minimal contributions from May and Taylor, with bassist John Deacon not playing on it at all. With Freddie playing most of the instruments, it marks the first time a drum machine is used on a Queen song. “Body” is also the subject of controversy in the US when the music videos’ erotic imagery cause it to become the first clip to be banned by MTV. It also causes further outcry for the picture sleeve, featuring a man and woman provocatively posed and nude, covered only in body paint. Queen’s US label Elektra Records hastily issues a second sleeve, replacing the offending images with the same graphics against a bright red background. Another song written by Mercury is the piano ballad “Life Is Real (Song For Lennon)” (also the B-side of “Body Language”), in tribute to John Lennon. The song “Under Pressure” (#29 Pop, #1 UK) is written out of a jam session at Queen’s studio in Montreux with David Bowie who had dropped by the studio to visit. Anchored by Deacon’s instantly attention grabbing bass line, Taylor’s in the pocket drumming, and Mercury and Bowie’s searing vocals, “Pressure” is an immediate standout. Released months in advance of the album, it becomes Queen’s second number one in the UK, but only cracking the Top 30 in the US, though MTV gives the video substantial airplay. It spins off a third single with the Taylor penned “Calling All Girls” (#60 Pop) but is not issued in the UK. When “Hot Space” is released, fans and critics are highly critical to Queen’s change in musical direction and in some cases react with disdain, marking the beginning of the bands commercial decline in the US throughout the 80’s. The album is remastered and reissued in 1991 with five additional bonus tracks. “Hot Space” peaks at number four on the UK album chart, number forty on the Billboard R&B album chart, number twenty two on the Top 200, and is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.
