Waking up the following morning is like ascending from a year in ice. Your heart is cold and numb, eyes crusted together with sleep and dried tears, your lips are cracked and voice scratchy from screaming your pain at the four walled prison you had made for yourself.

You contemplate calling Bucky, going so far as to pickup your phone, ignoring the 80+ missed calls you have from various Avengers. Finger hovering over the call button on the screen, the images of his betrayal replay inside your head. Stifling a sob, it lodges  in your throat, and you dial another number instead, a number you haven’t called in over 3 years, and pray that he will answer. You didn’t leave on the best of terms, after all.

Ring… Ring… Ring…

“What?” comes the gruff voice over the phone.

“Lo-Logan?” you croak, only to have silence greet you.

When the curt reply of, “(y/n)” finally comes, your heart plummets into your stomach. “I’m sorry,” you sob. “I shouldn’t have called.”

“No, wait, (y/n). What’s goin on?” You begin to cry in earnest and then, “I’ll be there in four hours,” comes over the line before it goes dead. You stare at your phone in horror. No… oh fuck..

Scrambling out of bed, you fly into the shower, scrubbing every inch of your skin, shampooing your hair and rinsing in record time. Rushing to your closet, you pick out black, skinny ripped jeans, combat boots, and a studded, capped sleeve, loose fitting t-shirt. You run a brush through your damp hair, pulling it into a tight ponytail before brushing a light dusting of blush across your cheeks and applying a coat of mascara to your eyelashes.

Feeling armed enough to face the onslaught of questions the arrival of Logan will bring, you step into your living area, taking in the shattered glass on the floor. Well fuck, this is a mess, you think as you float the pieces of glass in the air.  With a twitch of your fingers, you disintegrate them before turning your focus to the rest of the apartment. You straighten the hot mess your frazzled nerves made last night with a flick of your wrist, and satisfied with your progress, you sit yourself on the couch. Staring patiently at the door, you await Logan’s arrival.

Three hours and thirty minutes later, you hear a knock on the door, which sends a weird sense of panic and relief washing over you. Opening the door, you take in Logan’s features The man hasn’t aged a day. Strong muscular frame, hair styled just so, and a white wife beater under a leather jacket. Same old Logan.

“(Y/N)” he says in greeting.

“Logan,” you reply as you step aside to let him in. Gesturing toward the couch, you fidget as you ask, “Want something to drink?”

“Nah,” he replies. “What I want is for you to tell me why you called me out of nowhere, sounding like hell,” he states plainly, causing you to sigh as you take a seat next to him.

“I don’t know why I called…” you trail off. “I guess, I needed to hear a friendly voice..I..” You start crying as you try to get the words out. “The man I loved, my boyfriend of two years, thought it a fucking great idea to sleep with my best friend! And then he tells me he’s in love with both of us!” you exclaim shakily. “I’m such a fool to think it could have happened any other way, I mean, you left me for another woman.” You laugh mirthlessly as Logan growls. “Why the hell would it be any different this time? Why would anyone see me as anything else but a pit stop to someone better?” Pulling your knees to your chest, your breath hitches as you ask, “What’s wrong with me, Logan? Why can’t anyone love me enough to stay?”

Crying in earnest now, great heaving sobs shaking your delicate frame, you go willingly when he pulls you into his side. “There ain’t nuthin’ wrong with you, sweetheart. I loved Jean, and I loved you. I just… loved her a lil’ more, and I wound up killin’ her.” He snorts out a self-deprecating laugh. “She broke me, more than once, but you, you saved me. From the nightmares, from the darkness, and I treated ya like shit. I’m sorry for that.” He sighs loudly before continuing. “He’s an idiot, this man of yours, and I’m sorry he hurt ya,” Logan says gruffly

“I love him, Logan. More than I loved you, and a part of me wants to run back there and forgive him for everything.” Licking your dry lips you carry on, “And I need to go back, because it’s my job. People count on me. I’m gonna have to face them both, and deal with this, and all I really want to do is go home,” you say as you cling to his shirt.

“You wanna come home?” he asks tentatively.

“Yeah. I really just want to go home, Logan” you reply truthfully. “I wanna feel anything but this… numbness.”

He scrutinizes you for a full minute before he takes out his phone and dials a number:

“Professor,” he says, causing your head to snap up. “We have a problem.” He listens to the voice for a full thirty seconds before he says, “That’s the lay of the land, yeah. What can we do about it?” Silence again filled the space between you. “Alright. I’ll let her know. See you in a couple of days, Professor.” He presses the end call button and looks down at your shocked face. “Don’t look at me like that. You said you wanted to come home,” he says while quirking an eyebrow.

“I didn’t mean for you to call my brother!” you shriek, scrambling  frantically upright. “We haven’t spoken in more than four years, Logan!” Pacing the length of your apartment, you glare at his smirking face. “There’s a reason I haven’t been home to visit!”

“Well, suck it up, Bub’. He’s makin’ the calls as we speak. You’re being transferred back to the X-Men.”

Taking in Strays – Chapter 11

Present Day

Steve and Bucky made it back to the tower with Mickey in record time, rushing straight to Tony’s lab and bypassing the daycare centre. Swiping their passes against the electronic reader they were surprised to be greeted with a red LED light and a dull beep signalling that they weren’t allowed access. Banging their fists on the windows got Tony’s attention, and they watched as he rushed to the door and released it from the inside;

“Sorry about that, we’ve deactivated the entry system to deny access to any onlookers; we don’t want any more missing people”

They followed Tony across the lab and into his office, greeting Thor and were surprised to find a number of other people standing around; Loki, Wanda, Johnny and Vision.

“What’s everyone else doing here?” Steve asked, confused as to why so many people were in the room.

“We figured out what went wrong with it last time…” he paused as Steve waited expectantly; “There were so many other factors involved, Loki and Wanda’s magic, Vision’s stone, even Johnny’s flame increased the temperature in the room and that affected the polarity. We did a test run this morning and it all worked fine”

Ali is somebody who basically has always tried to be somebody other than she is. Ever since she came back, it looks like she’s been trying on personalities to figure out who she’s supposed to be and she doesn’t have the best track record for rushing into what look like society-acceptable relationships. By the time season 10 ends, Ali may finally come to a place where she understands enough about herself to actually be an adult with other people. She has an awful lot to process. She’s not been the best person in the world. It’s [a journey about] who the heck am I and why do I deserve to be loved?

Big Bang reactions to you fainting due to being overworked

Seunghyun/T.O.P

Originally posted by royalseunghyun

Seunghyun had always known how hard of a work you were because both of you were sign under the same company and had worked together for so many years. He loved how passionate and driven you were but he hated how hard you pushed yourself, sometimes you would forget to eat or drink water so you would stay hydrated. Seunghyun wasn’t one to judge though because he had done that a few times himself but one of his band members would almost always force him away from his work for his health but you didn’t have any band members since you were a solo artist under YG. He didn’t know how much you were actually working and not paying attention to your health so when he was in the practice room, watching you practice your choreography because you begged him to give you his opinion on it, he felt his heart stop when you hit the practice room floor. It only took him two seconds to get over to where you were, he was freaking out on the inside but he was trying to stay calm and rational. “Go get her manager!” He shouted at the member of the staff who had been playing your music for you so you could practice. He may have seemed calm but he was so torn up on the inside, he just hoped that you were okay.

Youngbae/Taeyang

(Probs not the best gif I could have used for this scenario but oh well :/) 

Youngbae knew you were pretty dedicated when it to dancing and it was one of the many things he loved about you but he didn’t know just how dedicated you were. He didn’t know about all time nights of sleep you missed and the weekends you missed just to practice this choreography for the collaboration between Mythical, your group, and Big Bang. You and him had been partnered up for the choreography because of your height which he was thankful for because he probably couldn’t handle seeing any of his band members dancing with his lover. Right now Mythical and Big Bang were doing a practice stage before the big concert for that night, everything was going fine until it got to the part where he had to pull you against his chest for a certain move that came after it. You had already been very dizzy when the practice started but Youngbae nor anyone else knew about it. When he went to go grab you to pull you to his chest his eyes widened with fear when your knees buckled and your eyes closed. He was quick enough to grab you and sink to the floor with you in his arms. It was obvious he was trying not to panic with how hard he was breathing and his hands were shaking. He could hear all the band members whispering to each other so he turned his head and looked at them. “Yah! Stop standing there and get some help!”

Jiyong/G-Dragon

Originally posted by ibgbang

Jiyong had never felt so worried in his life but his face didn’t show any form of emotion like he was some robot. Him and the rest of the Big Bang members were at an awards show, sitting at their table, just having an amazing time while they watched you perform your newest hit single ‘Siren’. Jiyong felt this sense of pride and joy as he watched you perform, thinking “Wow, that’s my jagiya”. That feeling immediately vanished when he heard the stutter in your voice before he saw your mic drop out of your hand as you fainted, hitting the stage face first. He knew he couldn’t panic too much because then he would expose your relationship that you two had yet to announce to the public. He tried to stay calm as tears pricked at the back of his eyes as he mumbled a silent “please be okay” repeatedly under his breath as he clenched and unclenched his hands under the table while his members gave him sympathetic looks as staff members rushed on stage to get to you and take you backstage to make sure you were okay. The worried whispers among the other celebrities and the paparazzi were not making him feel better at all.

Daesung/D-Lite

(I couldn’t find any sad looking type gifs of Dae bc he’s literal sunshine so this was all I could find)

Big Bang was on the variety/interview show (idfk what it’s called) that you were co-hosting with Song Mino. You had hosted this show many times before and Daesung knew how much you loved to do it because it gave you something new and different to do besides singing and dancing all the time but he didn’t know how much work you would put into getting prepared for days on ends for the guests on the show and how much time you spent not sleeping and eating for this. Everything was going well as you and Minho chatted and joked around with the band as you guys recorded the episode, it made Daesung smile seeing how happy you were. It seemed like nothing could go wrong until they had started doing the dances to girl group songs and you had been feeling pretty exhausted and dizzy but you knew you were fine as long as you stayed seated. You didn’t stay seated for very long because Mino, Top, and Taeyang begged you to show your amazing dancing skills and dance to girl group songs. You just couldn’t say no so you got up and started to dance for them and everything was fine until black dots filled your vision and then it all just kind of went dark. Daesung had noticed anything wrong as he cheered with the guys, shouting about how good you were at dancing until he watched your feet come out from under you and you limply hit the floor. “(Y/n),” Daesung shouted as he shot up from his seat, his heart breaking as recording crew stopped recording and rushed over to you to make sure you were okay. Tears welled up in his eyes as he watched the staff pick you up and rush off with you so they could get you somewhere to lay down at while someone called an ambulance.

Seunghyun/Seungri

Originally posted by seungrisayyo


Seungri was standing in the left wing beside the stage, a small smile on his face was he watched you happily perform with your group, Omen. He was glad it was your last concert of your tour, he was ready to have you back in his arms at home. He knew you must have been tired from touring, doing promotions, doing interviews, appearing on shows, even filming a few commercials and doing photo shoots but he had no idea how actually exhausted and overwhelmed you were. Your body was literally trying to shut down on you while you were performing but you were fighting against it for the fans, for your group, and for Seungri. It was when you were about to do your flip over two of your members when things started to go to shit. Everything was spinning as you were slowly slipping out of consciousness. Two back up dancers were on either side of you holding up your arms as you pressed a foot to another dancers back and then your were “thrown” as you twisted your body forward so you could do the flip, half way through the flip everything blurred and then faded out to black. You had fainted mid flip and you just hit the stage in this limp heap in front of your members with a loud ‘smack’. Seungri could hear the loud gasps and screams from the fans but that wasn’t what he was focused on as he ran onto the stage, scooping you up into his arms. He had tears in his eyes and his hands were shaking but he wasn’t sure if both were from him being worried, him being pissed at your manager for overworking you or both. He made his way backstage with you in his arms, screaming at a staff member to call an ambulance. He laid you out on the couch that was backstage before he turned to face the staff. “Where the fuck is Kim Jihoon?!” Oh, he was definitely going to give your manager a piece of his mind


(I hope you guys enjoy this reaction, it was requested by a lovely anon. I hope the reaction fits the description that the anon requested also I’m sorry for any grammar mistakes that might have been made.)

On this day in music history: February 4, 1984 - “Karma Chameleon” by Culture Club hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 3 weeks. Written by Michael Craig, Roy Hay, Jon Moss, George O'Dowd and Phil Pickett, it is the biggest hit for the British pop band fronted by lead singer Boy George. Written in the studio while recording their second album “Colour By Numbers in early 1983, George composes the songs’ ambiguous lyrics about his often stormy relationship with drummer Jon Moss (which is not public knowledge at the time). The bands’ producer Steve Levine runs into technical problems while recording overdubs. The songs’ rhythm is programmed on a Linn LM-1 drum machine, Levine discovers that the drum machine has gradually sped up after recording it. This causes major problems when "flying in” the chorus sections of the song (which had only been recorded once on the multi-track master reel), by copying the vocal tracks to another tape running at 15 ips (inches per second), then manually dropping them on to the multi-track in the correct places. “Karma Chameleon” is the bands’ biggest hit in the US and UK where it spends five weeks at number one, and is ranked the top single of the year, selling nearly 1.5 million copies in the UK alone. Issued as a single in late November of 1983, it is rush released by Epic Records in the US, after radio stations begin giving it heavy airplay as an LP cut while the first single “Church Of The Poison Mind” (#10 Pop) is still climbing the charts. Entering the Hot 100 at #52 on December 3, 1983, it climbs to the top of the chart nine weeks later. Regarded as one of the quintessential 80’s pop songs, “Chameleon” has a long life beyond its run on the charts. Culture Club performs the song on an episode of “The A-Team” in 1986, and is also featured on the “Alvin And The Chipmunks” and “Saints Row 2” video games. “Karma Chameleon” is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.

seliahlei  asked:

Not book related, just asking for life advice (?) My boyfriend and I have been together for 5 years and constantly get the marriage & babies questions. I don't want kids and we know we will eventually get married, we're just good with not rushing it. How do I kindly tell these people constantly asking, to shut the fuck up ? Also, love your videos ! They've really helped with the writing rut that I've been in <3

God. I can relate. For the record, rushing is the death of happiness (IMO), so good on you for moving at your own pace. 

Honestly, sarcasm has been my friend in this equation:

Well, we’d *like* to get married soon, but our damn parents can’t decide if I’m worth six cows or seven. I say make it six cows and a chicken, but what do I know? I’m a woman.

Marriage? But I’ve already pledged my love and devotion to our Dark Lord, Satan.

We’ll have babies as soon as we save up the money for EXTREME IVF. You haven’t heard of it? It’s where they inject me with a litter. I’m gonna be the golden retriever of moms.

First we have to agree on the name of our murderous baby army, *then* we can get around to having kids.

Pull this shit enough (and with a completely serious tone), and people will stop asking.

That said, if the culprits are your parents, nothing will shut them up. I’ve been honest about not wanting kids for most of my life, and my mom still brings up babies most times that I see her. 

OH, bonus option! If the person asking is someone I hardly know and thus shouldn’t be asking such personal questions in the first place, I respond with my own invasive, inappropriate question. “Do you shave your pubes, or go full bush?” You get the idea.

Kelly Clarkson Talks New LP, Top Female Execs Speak Out at Music Biz 2017
By Chris Talbott

NASHVILLE  — At the “Music’s Leading Ladies Speak Out” presentation at the Music Biz conference on Tuesday, Atlantic Records co-chairman/COO Julie Greenwald told a story that more than lived up to the event’s name. She was speaking of the first time she heard the forthcoming new album — and Atlantic debut — from Kelly Clarkson.

“I put the record on and it was like she kicked through the door,” Greenwald said in a Q&A session with Clarkson moderated by NPR’s Ann Powers. “I say to people all the time: I run a record company, I could eat you, that’s part of my rep. And we all know Kelly has this big voice. But these songs have so much attitude. She’s not walking through the door, she’s kicking it the f— open.”

She may have been talking about an album, but Greenwald set the theme for the presentation — which also featured an introduction from Nielsen Music SVP Erin Crawford and a panel with CMT senior vice president Leslie Fram, Country Music Association CEO Sarah Trahern, Red Light artist manager Tracy Gershon and Cosynd CEO/Women in Music president Jessica Sobhraj — offering insights on how to bring more women into the industry as artists and professionals.

“It’s got a lot of sass — like I might beat you up with my sound,” Clarkson said of her still-untitled album, which she says is a mixture of “urban, pop, soulful R&B” and is due later in the year. “My backup singers who’ve worked with me for years said ‘It’s the first time you’ve done a record that’s, like, full-on your personality.’”

For an artist who began her career by topping a favored Justin Guarini in the first season of “American Idol,” sparred publicly with music industry titan Clive Davis and is known for empowering songs like “Stronger” and “Since U Been Gone,” that’s saying something.

“I’ve always been a confident person, I think that’s just being Texan,” Clarkson said. “But I think being a mom has brought another level of confidence, because basically the things a mom does daily — without adding a job — is pretty insane. We’re gladiators, basically.”

Finding that elusive work/life balance that also allows an artist or professional to chase her passion was a key topic during the two-hour discussion.

Greenwald explained how she rose through the ranks under the tutelage of Lyor Cohen, with whom she worked at Rush Management, Def Jam Records and Atlantic. She said she was often the only woman in the room and found ways to engineer greater acceptance for herself in the highest levels of the industry. She believes in building an environment that fosters risk-taking and free-form ideas, things that helped her and Cohen innovate on the frontlines of hip-hop in the early 1990s.

“Lyor was incredible,” she said. “He allowed me to be fearless. He encouraged me every day to take risks, and I take everything that I learned from him and share that with everybody that I mentor,” Greenwald said. “But one thing I did change is he really didn’t let me take maternity leave with either of my kids. There were just certain things like that where if I’d had a woman boss, maybe she would say, ‘You could at least take a week off.’”

She fights that syndrome now, trying to help her employees avoid the familiar traps she fell into.

“I really only see my children in the morning and then on the weekend,” Greenwald said. “So I really try to make sure the other women who work for me know, ‘Hey, listen, you have an iPhone, you have a laptop, it’s okay. Don’t miss certain events, because you’re not going to get them back. I try to teach a lot of my young ones to learn from my mistakes. That new-baby smell goes away and they become smelly!”

She said she admires Clarkson’s fierce protection of family time — the singer has a blended family of four children with husband and Nashville manager Brandon Blackstock — or at least including them in her life.

“She protects her family,” Greenwald said. “‘I’m going to work, I’m going to kick ass, but I’m going to protect my time for my family. As a woman, I respect that so much.”

The panelists stressed the importance of networking, building relationship and supporting other women to the scores of young female professionals and students in the several-hundred-strong crowd.

“Find the people that are your people,” Trahern said. “Tracy and I have been walking in the park on the weekends for many years. We may only get to do it a few times a year, but you can cut to the chase even if you don’t see each other often. We all grew up in this generation together. You find those people in your group and you’re going to grow together.”

And everyone agreed passion was the most important hallmark they look for when mentoring and placing potential employees.

“You’ve just got to roll your sleeves up and do it,” Sobrahj said. “Nothing pisses me off more than having an intern or an assistant who says, ‘I’m not going to do that. I’m not going to draft those tweets. I’m not going to get that coffee.’ I’m the CEO of my company and I’ll go get anybody a cup of coffee. I don’t care — because if you’re not going to roll your sleeves up and dive in, then why are you doing it?”

Gershon told a story that vividly illustrated Sobrahj’s point and demonstrated the lengths to which she’ll go to help a client — in this case rockabilly singer/guitarist Rosie Flores.

“She needed $1,500 to go into the studio,” Gershon said. “I said, ‘I know — I’ll [get the money by] going on a game show.’ I dressed up in the dumbest outfit and frosted my hair and jumped up and down like a wild goose and told them I was a senior aerobics instructor — and yes, I got on that show. It was called ‘Hot Streak.’ I won $1,600 and luggage, and literally that’s how we got Rosie in the studio. And basically, [the resulting recordings] won her a deal with Warner Bros.”

About to upload some blackmail material for all of you guys

Basically yesterday I drank too much soda and had a sugar rush. I also recorded some videos that honestly I find hilarious. And wanted to share it.

I’m definitely not going to regret it at all

Ps: I’m sorry for all of the French people in here in advance
