Summary: Jack is getting ready to do a photo shoot for Alicia’s friend. Bitty comes along to keep him company, when Bitty suddenly becomes the model. Jack’s reaction to the photo is… interesting. A quick little ficlet which takes place during Jack’s senior year. Also on AO3…
Jack hated photo shoots. Absolutely hated them, but Alicia had a favor called in and he found himself in a position of not being able to say no. And so, begrudgingly, Jack Zimmermann was on his way to Boston for a one-day shoot.
“Like an actual shoot shoot?” Bitty asked wide-eyed as he told him about it over some ginger peach pie the evening before.
“Yeah. It’s for some clothing line. They’re going to dress me up like a puppet and then I have to stand there, and smile like an idiot.”
“I dunno, it sounds so fun to me. I’d love to model!” Bitty said then sighed, “Alas, I am vertically challenged.”
“Euh… do you want to come with me?” Jack asked pushing his pie around the plate with his fork.
“Really? And like watch?!” Bitty practically bounced off his seat.
“I guess so, Bittle. Don’t make me take it back.”
“No! I’ll behave. I promise! It’s going to be so much fun.”

-she just stands alone on stage with a single lightbulb over her head
-and has this beautiful soliloquy
-i was crying. brittain was crying. everyone was crying
-the "and if i never sleep again” part is just so beautiful and heartbreaking ugh
•preparations was so good but it was like a lil bit weird to hear azudi bc he doesn’t sound At All like nick which isn’t a bad thing at all I’m just used to having a Very Clearly Midwestern 19th Century Russian Dolokhov™
•so in the beginning anatole comes up to pierre and he’s holding a bag and The Green Coat
•also shaving cream
-on the “lend me fifty rubles” Pierre gets out his wallet and takes out the money and holds it out for anatole to take and instead of taking the money anatole just takes his whole fuckin wallet
•azudi’s voice was just a lot more musical theatre-y i guess? idk
•but he still did amazing he did not miss a beat like Wow
•sadly did not get a shaker rip
•but the whole theatre was so lit during this song
•the Green Coat in all its glory
•just as squishy and majestic in person
•Paul pintos energy was off the charts!!!!
•idk what happened with danatole ugh I wasn’t lookin
•they were all dancing it was so beautiful and chaotic
•when josh goes “wOOOOOAAAAAAAAAH” they pause for a few secs to catch their breath it’s real funny
•anatole does these fun hand motions when the ensemble joins in for the next “WOAH OOAH
OOO O O OAH
kinda like he’s conducting them
•The Abduction is possibly my new fav group number
•lucas’ wOAAAAAAAAAAAAH’ lasted forever oh geez
•THE VIOLIN HOLY SHIT GUYS
•he was finessing every man, woman, and nonbinary person in the fuckin room with that violin
•"smash your glasses on the floor” is the 19th century russian equivalent of “SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS”
•and then there’s a whole bunch of dancing
•and then The shut The door part
•i was a lil miffed bc you couldn’t see what he was doing to the person next to him from my seat but everyone laughed so /:
•azudi in the Abduction aka slay my life
•he looks legit so concerned for anatole
•but also he’s like take the cloak you stupid fuck
•i think he takes the cloak off of pearl but if not sure
•gelsey as the maidservant!!!!
•she fuckin slayed those high notes
•they were slewn
•MARYA MY GIRL JUST BURSTING IN LIKE HAH YOU THOUGHT BITCH
•in my house is a song of pure unfiltered RAGE
•props to grace because it’s very hard sometimes to like a character as aggressive as mama marya but she’s one of the best characters in the show honestly
•the part where the music which had been so chaotic and energetic for like half an hour almost starts to mellow out and marya does the whole “I covered her with two quilts” thing is the auditory version of a liminal space
•the last lyrics of in my house sung by natasha are pretty haunting not gonna lie
•I don’t remember anything from a call to pierre TBH except for marya tracking pierre down and all of pierre’s “whAAAt"s getting more and more loud and honestly that’s all I needed to remember
•also grace being terrifying but what’s new
•I feel like this is weird but I really love find anatole
•like Lucas and josh have a really fun chemistry I don’t know
•josh laps the entire stage "looking” for anatole
•he literally seizes Lucas by the collar and at the bash your head in line he picks up what I originally thought was a bottle but Is actually a bear paperweight and legit looks like he wants to murder him
•also at the part where it sounds like a computers breaking down that’s when natasha poisons herself
•i personally didn’t realize this bc i was too focused on Lucas ngl
•like he looks so terrified
•pierre rather unsubtly gestures to anatole’s crotch during the “besides your pleasure” bit
•when anatole goes “you could at least take back your words, eh?” pierre just. glares at him. he’s like “are you… are you fucking kidding me”
•he held that note forever i swear
•there was a long bit of applause after that
•anatole’s exit is just as dramatic as his entrance honestly
•natasha very ill is just so… sobering? like it’s been nonstop energy and anger and panic and manic energy for like half and hour and then the whole thing just slows down
•I don’t remember much of pierre + andrey but people usually read it as andrey being sarcastic but he seemed genuinely worried about natasha to me i don’t know tho
•pierre and natasha just. wow
•denee comes in in her dressing gown and braided hair and she’s just stripped raw it’s so beautiful and impactful
•and the way denee leans on the handrails for support, she was just so so good w o w
•Josh’s "if i were not myself” monologue is done I believe as Natasha’s about to leave, then as he starts talking she just stops and listens and at the end you see her physically regain some of her innocence •and when she touches his face!!!!!!! wowwwww
•like when I see any musical, i didn’t pay much attention to the last song because oH NO THE SHOW IS ALMOST OVER WHAT NO IT CANT BE OVER
•josh has the voice of an angel wow
•the strings at the end are very anxiety inducing
•as they get higher and higher the comet glows brighter and brighter it’s really mesmerizing
•i love the bows music wow it’s so amazing
•there was a standing o
•also so much applause for lucas and denee and josh
•i don’t remember half of the people that came out in sorry
•here’s what i do remember
-we came out of the wrong side of the theatre and had to fucking bolt to the other side
-josh canfield came out for sure he was so nice!
-azudi came out and he saw the great comet hat i just bought and he was jokingly like “no way i have one just like it!”
-2 girls in all purple clothing and wigs i don’t remember who they were im sorry
-gelsey came out i was crying a little bit!!!
-josh came out but he didn’t go down as far as i was (the barricades didn’t stretch that far rip)
-I had a full conversation to pearl rhein about how she looks like lulu @melchixr and she was like! “no way! my name is pearl and lulu in swahili means pearl!” she was so nice
-cathryn wake addressed my playbill to me she was so lovely wow
-lucas came out last and he was wearing a pastel green baseball cap i was living
-i asked him for a picture he was literally so nice?????? w o w
-so the line was stretching way back like past the barricades and paul god bless him was trying to exit out of the doors in the back like the one with denee’s face on it
-little did he know the line stretched back so far that the end of the line was just around said door
-he opened the door and accidentally fuckin decked the person standing in front of it
-he apologized profusely and just kinda scampered off god love him
-when i left i stopped for a sec and lucas was walking out and he patted me on the back i absolutely started crying
-side note: andy mientus was at the show and i didn’t know and when i got home and found out i was like “wHAT? DID HE GO BACKSTAGE? COULD I HAVE S E EN HIM IF I WAS CLOSER UP??”
in summary, great comet was the single most amazing and unique theatre experience I’ve ever had and i would do almost anything to get to experience again

It was magnificent what a change in weather did to the world. With the snow pouring down around the atmosphere like a snow globe, the homey landscape outside the Burrow appear as a scenery straight from a Hallmark holiday card.
There were no visible lights, other than the strings placed around the wooden hut. Flashes of red, green, blue, and yellow flickered on a timed schedule. All the world was silent while the snow cascaded down to the ground in a soothing waterfall pattern.
You positioned your weight forward, hands clenching the window sill. The prepossessing sight was more captivating than any show you had witnessed before. Winter was a beautiful season despite the harsh cold brought along with the change of season.
The snow blanketed ground seemed so near though as you pressed your hand against the chilling glass perception struck unmasking the hundreds of feet down to the covered ground.
When I met Colin, I was struck by how different he looked from his geeky, rather Hobbit-like persona in Merlin. His blue eyes glitter with intelligence and compassion, and a rare, lovely charisma; and better still he is so unexpectedly gorgeous! […]
My lovely students, Maria and Roisin completely, and rather sweetly, fail to recognise Colin from Merlin, and happily let him muck in and carry boxes and props for the shoot. Colin is a star, but he isn’t the least bit arrogant. He is warm-hearted and friendly to everyone. Even so, there were blushes all round when I stop trying to do a hundred and one things at once, and properly introduce him to everyone.
After promising him that he won’t go hungry at lunch, I’ve organized a delicious vegan picnic, he tells me that he usually brings his own sandwich to work to avoid complete starvation. What a terrible thought. By this stage everyone is hopelessly smitten with him. - Alison Jane Reid (BTS at The Lady Magazine)
SUMMARY: When Adrien gets a new mode of transport, neither he nor Marinette quite realize the implications that are about to follow.
Don’t wait for an invitation.
No need for reservation.
This life is an exploration
And you gotta see what I see in you. –Capital Cities
Black and silver paint gleamed in the brilliant afternoon sunlight, highlighting the sleek contours of the machine in front of him.
Adrien was in love again.
Power and speed and stealth practically radiated off the motorcycle, Ducati stamped across the side in bold manuscript. It was only supposed to be a background prop for the photo shoot that day, and it wasn’t even the blond’s prop to begin with.
Still, he couldn’t help but let out a sigh as he continued to admire it up close, makeup crew forgotten. His overt staring did not go unnoticed.
Hiyah dear! I saw your requests were open and I'm so excited! I was inspired by your piece about Hanzo I hope it's okay that it made me want some more "awkward" *wink wink* bed sharing. Gabriel continued to smirk at your expense. "What carino?" He questioned, "never shared a bed with another man before?" You huffed before throwing the bag that contained your gear on the ground next to the night stand. "Of course I have. That man wasn't my commander though"
”Doesn’t Blackwatch have a large budget? How the hell did we wind up with a single bed in a cheap motel?”
“Be grateful we even have a room at all,
cariño.” Your commander, Gabriel Reyes, seemed to have no problem with the situation at all as he opened the door. “We blew most of it getting a certain ingrate back home.”
“Oh, the ransom thing last week?”
You followed in after him, exhausted after a long car ride in the scorching sun that soon turned into a frigid night. Weather in Arizona was wild. A bed sounded great to your aching everything right about now, but you know it’s one bed only and one of you will have to take the floor, or you’ll both have to share. And while it’s not ideal, it wasn’t all bad because have you seen Commander Reyes? He’s not exactly hard to look at.
Hey! I'm in love with your blog it is beautiful and so well organized! 😍 Can I request rfa with a really arrogant himedere girlfriend? Like she is always passive - aggressive, bitchy and sometime just the most annoying person in the world and looks down at others. But then sometimes when she is alone with her partner she shows her sweet sides in which her partner felt in love with (encouraging, helping usw.) I hope you get what I mean, i know it is a bit hard but yeah.. Thank you really much 😘
He’s so eager to meet his girlfriend’s expectations and read her every wish from her eyes.
People are likely to ask him why he puts so much effort and energy into this relationship, if he doesn’t get anything back.
Thing is, he does. He loves her unconditionally, in her bitchy as well as sweet moods. And it’s because he knows she does the same for him.
Besides, let’s be real, it’s his kink to be treated like a worshipping servant. There, I said it.
He just really loves the idea of being his queen’s guardian warrior, right beside her throne with a sword in hands. He 100% asked her to actually cosplay something of the sort for a LOLOL convention!
She’s used to being bossed around. But she also knows when it’s too much and will stand up for herself.
Jaehee is a very patient person (her job requires her to build up on nerves of steel), so it would take her a lot to get annoyed at her girlfriend.
However, she does point out whenever she thinks her behavior is over the top and inappropriate for the situation. It would be quite upsetting to her to know she’s just being used like that, that’s not what a healthy relationship should be like.
She’s still considerate throughout. There’s no picking a fight with her. If anything, she kindly asks her girlfriend to be more thoughtful before turning “bitchy” over nothing.
Himedere or not, Zen’s girlfriend is his princess, queen, majesty and even goddess either way. He literally addresses her by that, unironically so. We all know he’s the knight in shining armor, too, so there you have it, the perfect duo.
Actually would steal one of the actors props during shooting a scene. A pretty crown fit for his babe.
Kneeling in front of her and kissing the knuckles of her hand is his aesthetic (mine as well, btw). Happily worships her. Every inch of her, that is… ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
He genuinely thinks their grumpy fits are adorable. He never really gets annoyed by it, as long as he can speak to her in a reasoning manner, if it ever crossed a line.
You have the rest of the RFA members resembling knights and guardians and supporting hands. And then you have Jumin as the literal king to his queen.
Maybe he’s not as bitchy and expectant of others to treat him a certain way. But he can be quite bossy. To him it’s actually sort of self explanatory, let’s be real.
She’ll have to share the throne with him, there’s no use fighting over who’s the true and only majesty here, they’ll have to coexist when reigning.
If there’s something she demands, Jumin will just have to snip his fingers for someone else to take care of the matter.
We have knights, guardians, supporting hands, a king and then we haVE THE JESTER SEVEN ZERO SEVEN
Whenever his girlfriend’s passive aggressive princette side is showing, he’ll drop to his knees dramatically (he will do it in public too, try him), bow and beg for mercy.
Always points out how cute she is when pouty over something. He will tease her for this kind of behavior, but he does think it’s charming.
Jokingly addresses her by “your majesty” and will say stupid shit like “am I worthy of your mighty presence, oh Queen Of My Heart?”
A JayTim prompt where young abandoned/lonely!Tim stumbles across a new entrance to the Bat cave when spelunking (with or without the correct gear- cue later protective!Jason freakout) but never tells anyone even when he is Stray. ...he might have used it to snag some of Alfred's or Jason's cooking though.
Hi Nonnie! Thanks so much for sending the request in, I hope you like it :) You know I love Stray AUs. I wanted to add more but it was already longer than my usual request fills, whoops 0.0
His parents think it’s strange that he doesn’t hang out with very many of the kids his age. His therapist tells them that it’s normal for children in their early teens to feel alienated from their peers. Tim thinks that adults should have more important things to worry about than his social life…or lack thereof.
I finished the last prop for our photo shoot! And it’s none other then your Energon Harvester! And it transforms hehe! ;D now you have a cool weapon to point and shoot for photos and for Phoenix Comicon!
I wonder what would Say 10 video finally look like. IF there will be a Say 10 video at all, that is. I mean, Marilyn Manson seemingly didn’t get enough attention, but that was obviously because they never showed the decapitated head in the small “trailer” which came out. It was just vaguely alluding the decapitation of DT, more because of the moment it was released in than because of what was actually demonstrated on it. Kathy Griffin, on the other hand, seems to be living a nightmare after going to the end.
So did Tyler Shields use the same idea and props in the KG photo-shoot because MM team decided not to go on with it? And does this have anything to do with the delay in the release of the album? Any thoughts, anyone?
