Simon

Penny was quite obviously annoyed with Simon. They were sitting at a table at a café and Simon was ignoring her completely. A few minutes ago he had spotted a man across the street with longish black hair and an incredibly familiar frame. Simon was almost certain it was Baz but it was too far away to be completely sure. 

“Simon who are you staring at?” Penny asked, cheeks red with frustration.

“Um, I don’t know…does he look familiar?” Simon asked.

Penny glanced in the direction he was looking.

“Does who look familiar? There’s like a million people sitting over there.”

Simon bit his lip. Now he wasn’t so sure it was Baz. He’d hoped Penny would immediately recognize him and reassure Simon that he was right. But if he was wrong he didn’t want to be accused of being obsessed with Baz, even if he actually was. 

“Oh I just thought I recognized the guy with the black hair,” Simon mumbled.

This time Penny turned and gave her full concentration. 

“Oh, you mean Basilton. Yeah I think that’s him,” Penny said.

“Oh,” Simon said, keeping his eyes averted.

Since they’d graduated Watford three years ago Simon hadn’t seen his former roommate ever again. It had been strange at first, no longer sharing a room with someone who’d always been there since he was eleven. Eventually he had gotten used to it, but it didn’t mean he’d stopped thinking about Baz. Over time he’d begun to question whether or not he’d ever really hated him or if it had been something else entirely.

Penny was studying him, a smirk on her face.

“Let’s invite him to eat with us,” Penny said.

Simon’s eyes widened, panicked.

“No! He looks like he’s already seated. Besides, he probably doesn’t even remember us,” Simon said.

Penny snorted.

“Baz was just as fixated on you as you were on him at Watford.”

“Shut up,” Simon hissed.

Penny stood up and grabbed her cloth napkin, waving it in the air like a signal.

Hey Basilton! Yeah, you! Come over here and converse with your fellow alumni!” 

Simon knew his face was beet red, knew it but had no idea how to stop it. He couldn’t look up, couldn’t even speak, as Penny settled back into her seat and watched him triumphantly.

“You’re welcome,” She said.

“Excuse me?” Simon choked out.

Just then, Baz arrived at their table his expression amused but distant. He was wearing dark wash jeans and an expensive looking dark green sweater. His gray eyes seemed to spark against the hazy gloom of the morning. Simon felt his heart thump faster as Baz took a seat next to him.

“Ah, the Watford heroes. How’s life as a retired chosen one and side-kick?” Baz asked.

Penny huffed angrily.

“Side-kick? I’m the one who figured out how to get Simon’s magic back, I think I’ll settle for the brainy tech hero who helps the idiot brave hero in her spare time, thank you very much,” She said. 

Baz glanced at Simon and away.

“So he’s not a Normal after all?” Baz asked.

“I’m right here,” Simon mumbled.

“No he’s not and he’s a lot better at magic these days, now that he has a normal amount,” Penny said.

Baz, without looking at Simon, turned slightly in his direction.

“So how did you miraculously bounce back?” He asked.

“Agatha’s dad noticed that I still had some magical energy. It was really low and nothing I could really access but he assured me it meant I wasn’t a Normal. Then Penny spent some time with various energy spells and tried to channel it to my magic. Overtime I healed, not a big deal,” Simon said.

“Would have been easier with you Baz, what with your connection to Simon’s magic,” Penny said.

“A deal is a deal. He helped me find my mother’s killer and I, well I didn’t kill him. Nothing else was required of me,” Baz said. 

“I’m so glad we got to catch up,” Simon muttered. 

“Damn, they only have the fake sugar packets. I’m going to go ask for some real sugar, I’ll be right back,” Penny said.

When she left, the table went silent. Simon played awkwardly with the edge of his menu and glanced up at Baz. He made a noise when he realized Baz was already staring back at him. There was something in his eyes, something that told Simon not to say something stupid in that moment. Instead, he stared back without saying a word.

“Would it have really helped? Me having done the spells?” Baz asked.

“Probably,” Simon said.

“Do you think…do you think we’re still connected? I mean, to your magic,” Baz said.

“I don’t know. I’m not sure if that was because of all the magic I had or if it was, I don’t know, an us thing,” Simon said.

“An us thing,” Baz repeated.

Simon swallowed nervously. His palms felt slick against his jeans and he didn’t know what to say. 

“Do you want to try it?” Baz asked.

“Try what?”

“Try to share it again…just to see,” Baz said.

Simon bit his lip.

“But we’re in public, won’t it be a little…?”

“I won’t do any spells,” Baz promised.

Simon wanted to tell him that it wasn’t scaring the Normals that he was afraid of but rather the intimacy of it. The last time they’d shared magic had been back in their room in Watford, away from the rest of the world. Simon wasn’t sure he wanted anyone, even Penny, to see them like that.

He reached across the table and grabbed Baz’s hand. He felt his heart jump and glanced up to see that Baz’s mouth had opened slightly, as if the physical contact had surprised him. His skin was just as he remembered it, smooth and a little bit cold. He tried to relax his mind, to push his magic out tentatively towards Baz.

Baz gasped.

“Penny…she said your magic was normal…” He whispered.

Simon looked away.

“Simon…are you sure this is safe?” Baz asked.

“I’m not what I used to be, not at all. There are no more holes. But whoever my parents were, they were powerful. I think I’m even stronger than Ebb.”

“So you were always meant to be made of magic,” Baz said, wonder in his voice.

Simon was about to ask what he meant by that when a waiter came and asked for their orders. Simon tried his best to remember Penny’s order and wondered where the hell she had gone off to find sugar. Baz seemed jittery, not able to shake off Simon’s magic.

“You’re right, it’s not nearly as strong as it was before. But it’s still intense,” Baz said.

Simon shrugged.

“Genetics I guess.”

Baz frowned.

“Is something wrong Snow? You’ve barely looked at me since I sat down,” Baz said.

“I could say the same thing to you,” Simon replied, voice defensive.

Baz clenched his jaw, looking torn.

“It’s not…I don’t think you’d understand,” He said. 

Simon made an effort to keep his gaze on Baz steady.

“Try me.”

Baz smiled briefly and then sighed.

“Simon I…I’ve had feelings for you for a very long time. I thought being away from you would help. That I could meet a nice guy in college and forget all about you but it hasn’t happened. And I don’t think it will,” Baz said.

Simon felt excitement flutter in his stomach.

“I don’t mean to make you uncomfortable. I don’t expect you to do anything about it or say anything. But, you asked,” He said.

“Baz-“

“Really it’s not like you have to say anything, I get it.”

“Shut up,” Simon said.

Baz glanced at him in surprise.

“What?”

Simon leaned across the table and kissed Baz, a brief touch of lips, before settling back into his seat.

Baz blinked for a minute or so.

“Um…” he said.

“Yes?” Simon said.

“So uh, does that mean…”

“Would you please go on a date with me Baz? Maybe next Friday around seven?” Simon asked.

Baz nodded, cheeks slightly pink.

Penny ran over, clapping her hands excitedly.

“How exciting! You two have a date!”

“Where the hell have you been?” Simon asked.

“Getting the sugar, like I said,” Penny replied.

“So, where’s the sugar?” Baz asked.

She glanced down and swore.

“I uh, must have dropped it,” She said.

Baz laughed, his grey eyes crinkling around the corners. Simon couldn’t help but laugh too, especially given how red Penny’s face was. It was cold out, and they all had jobs they’d have to leave for soon, but Simon felt happier than he had in a long time. It seemed that the piece that had been missing from Simon’s life since he’d left Watford had finally come back to him.

Justin Bieber: Best Friends on Ellen

Words count:1582

Warning: none

Summery: You and Justin are friends for six years, and are having an interview on Ellen. Fluff and fun. 

You’re a famous model, who has been on the scene since you were young. Growing up under the spot light was a strange thing for you to go through, but with the help of your family you grew up just fine. Being in the industry as long as you have, made you very popular and have a lot of famous friends. The oldest friend you have is Justin Bieber. You met Justin just as he released Baby back in 2010. You two became fast friends. In no time you became best of friends. When you needed something you could rely on each other. When you needed to talk the other was there to listen even if you were on the other ends of the earth. When needed you always took a plane to get where the other was. Your relationship was stronger than of siblings.

Being spotted with each other made the media go crazy and rumors were thrown left and right. It amused you what some people came up with. At first you could understand that the media just was confused, but now six years later still some rumors come and go, all pushed down by your and Justin’s team.

You appeared in couple of Justin’s videos, and were in a clip in his Never Say Never movie. So when you came with the idea of you two starting a charity together just couldn’t say no to you, and you and Justin worked hard to start your own charity organization. You had done a photoshoot with Justin for publicity and were even invited to Ellen’s for an interview. You were her only interviewees that day.

You were all ready and good to go, you were waiting for Justin to finish you were up in five. You were nervous, and kept looking around for him, he was never ever on time.

“I’m here!” Justin called as he speed walked to you, you shook your head at him.

“Finally.” You exclaimed, and quickly fixed his clothes just as your cue was about to be called.

“And with us today, the amazing and talented Justin Bieber and (y/n) (y/l/n).” Ellen said and you walked on stage with Justin. You were smiling and waved at the crowed. You quickly said your hello’s to Ellen and a wave to the audience and sat in the sofa. It wasn’t a small one but you were still very close to Justin which you didn’t mind.

“It feels great to be back here.” Justin said flashing a smile to the audience who was going crazy.

“You should come more often then.” Ellen said.

“This is my first time here.” You said.

“Why is that?” Ellen asked knowing, she had tried to get you on her show a few times before but it always was when you were busy with your work.

“Well it’s not my fault, but you always invite me when I’m busy.” You told her and gave her an innocent smile.

“So you have time for Jimmy Fallon but for us, I’m offended.” Ellen joked.

“Well Ellen, Jimmy isn’t the one who’s about to spend the day with us, is he?” you told Ellen and laughed.

“You’re right, ok I forgive you.” Ellen said and you mouthed a ‘thank god’ the audience laughed. “Ok, so before I ask you about the organization, I have a few questions for you two.”

“Fire away.” Justin said, and you nodded.

“I heard that this is your first interview together in a long time?” Ellen asked.

“Yes, we usually don’t do interviews together, almost all of them are on red carpet when one of us doesn’t have a date and need one.” Justin said.

“Yes, which is a lot by the way.” You added.

“Take that Fallon I got Bieber and (y/l/n).” Ellen said to the screen and you laughed, with everyone else. “How long have you too knew each other for?”

“Six years.” You and Justin said at the same time, you gave each other a looked then a laughed.

“Wow, so a really long time then.” Ellen stated, and Justin said ‘yeah’. “And how has it been? Your friendship I mean.”

“It’s an… interesting one.” You said and laughed.

“Yes, we both changed along the years and the interesting thing is that we didn’t drift apart even though we sometimes spent four months without seeing each other.” Justin said and you nodded along with his words. “We are very close friends.”

“Yes, I mean whenever we’re both in LA he’s either at my mouse, or the other way around.” You said, and then smirked and whispered the last bit to the mic. “Unless, he’s having company.” Everyone laughed.

“Is it true that you are the one who bails him out of jail?” Ellen asked you.

“Yes, I’m his emergency number for some unknown reason.” I told Ellen.

“And I’m hers by the way.” Justin said and faked coughed. You glared at him playfully.

“Surprise mom.” You said to the screen and Ellen laughed.

“Yes, mom I’m sorry you’re not my emergency number, but don’t worry Justin is here to bail me out.” Ellen said to the camera, and you smiled.

“What she said.” You said pointing at Ellen.

“OK Justin tells what (y/n) means to you.” Ellen said turning to Justin, as did you. You looked at him and raised an eyebrow. “How is she as a friend?”

“(y/n) is… she’s an amazing friend, she stood by me for so long and hasn’t given up on me, and she always pushes me to try and do my best and be the best version of myself. She means the world to me and I’m very lucky to have her as a friend” Just said and you couldn’t help but smile. It meant so much to you. “(y/n) is always one call away, and she has been with me for every break-up, milt-down every mess up everything she always tries to help me when I have a problem with the media, she keeps me drounded. She’s just amazing, and I love her so much.”

You couldn’t help but hug Justin the audience ‘awed’ at you two. Justin hugged you and the let go, after you gave him a kiss on the cheek.

“That’s a really good thing to hear, I love hearing things like that.” Ellen stated her face shining form just seeing you tow happy. “(y/n) are you ok? Do you need a tissue?”

“No, I’m fine, I can keep it in until we finish.” You let out a small laugh and welled the tears away.

“Good, because now is your turn. How is Justin as a friend? And what does he mean to you?”

“Justin is a dork.” Everyone laughed and Justin pushed you playfully. “But, he’s my best friend, he truly is one in a million, I love him and he’s very supportive of whatever I do, and just keeps me happy, he always know what I want and need without me saying it, I guess we just became that familiar with each other, he stood by me in my darkest times, and always tells me to do my absolute best, and to not care about what other people say and to trust my instinct and I just wanted to say I need no squad as long as I got the Biebs by my side.”

“Nice finishing line, I need no squad as long as I got Biebs by my side.” Ellen said, you leaned into Justin’s side as he had his hand in the back of the sofa behind you. “How about boyfriends and girlfriends?”

“Let me tell you Justin takes the big brother role way too seriously.” You said laughing at the memory of him meeting your current boyfriend.

“What do you mean? What did you do Justin?” Ellen asked Justin, who blushed a little.

“I never think they’re good enough for her, and I let them know who is the one who has her by his side.” Justin said casually as if that’s the normal. “I may or may not scared a lot of them.”

“I always wander how canI still find men to date.” You said and shook your head.

“And how was he when he found out you were dating fellow model Simon Nessman(OR any other model or whoever you want)?”

“He was so over protective, he even tried to convince me that he was so much older and that he wasn’t good for me.”

“Well, I got to look out for my (y/n) now shouldn’t I?” Justin tried to explain himself.

“Totally, next time just show them your bodyguard collection and they’ll go running.” Ellen joked with Justin.

“Please, don’t give him ideas.” You begged Ellen.

“Too late.” Justin smirked and you groaned.

“Okay (y/n) you do you handle his girlfriends?” Ellen asked you and you smirked at Justin who shook his head.

“Well first of all I only meet the ones who pass the one month mark, and I’m very, very honest about my opinions on them, and if they’re models that I’ve worked with before and I know they’re going to be a bad influence on him I let him know, I just look out for him.” You shrugged.

“Justin is more fun I’ll help you Justin. I’ll give you more ideas through the break.” Ellen said and it was a little break time and they set ready for the next part of the show.

PART 2??

OK BUT i need a parallel gifset of simon talking about the bully he faced when he was younger and how raphael was ready to cut a muthafucka when that werewolf shoved him

IF ONLY RAPHA WAS THERE TO PROTECT HIM WHEN HE WAS YOUNGER

Attention to Fellow Clace shippers

Even after the kiss tomorrow don’t expect Clary to chase after Jace (that rhymed 😂 oh I’m weird) she still has to deal with the whole “so yeah I desire someone else other than my boyfriend” ordeal. So that will probably lead into 2.15 (which airs on July 10th 😭 one week off)

Also for those who hate Clace, it’s endgame deal with it. Like seriously stop hating on them.

Sharon Osbourne is looking for talent not ‘tits and ass’ on this year’s X Factor

X Factor judge Sharon Osbourne has said she is hoping to find “a fabulous girl that’s got a great voice, no tits and ass” for the show this year.

Osbourne, 64, made the comments as the Liverpool auditions for this year’s instalment of the ITV series got under way.

Talking about finding talent up north, she said she and her fellow judges – Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger – were on the lookout for “just loads and loads of talent, that’s what we want”.

Asked if she had anything specific in mind she added: “I’m looking for a great girl… a fabulous girl that’s got a great voice, no tits and ass, just somebody that’s really talented.”

The singing show has lowered the minimum audition age to 14 this year, in the hopes of finding talent such as Liam Payne, who was the same age when he auditioned as a solo artist in 2008.

Two years later Payne returned to the audition stage and was more successful when he was recruited as a member of One Direction.

Osbourne appeared to take subtle aim at Canadian pop star Justin Bieber, who found fame at a very young age after posting his singing videos on YouTube.

Asked if she was “hoping to maybe find somebody like that” she quipped: “God, I hope not!

“No, I’d like to find somebody yes who is young, but very grounded and actually knows what they are doing and knows how hard this business is and has a great work ethic.

“Somebody that’s grounded but young.”

The start date of the new series has not yet been confirmed, but Dermot O’Leary will return to front the popular show.

First look at Andrew Scott in crime thriller Steel Country

Did you miss him? If so, good news. Andrew Scott is back in action in a new US-set crime thriller called Steel Country. 

Scott plays a small-town Pennsylvania trucker in the film. When a young boy is found dead in the western part of the state, the freight-hauler turns gumshoe to find out what happened. His quest soon tips ominously into obsession, though.

The movie, which has been shooting in Atlanta, has something of a British flavour. The King’s Speech producer Gareth Ellis-Unwin put the project together for his Bedlam Productions company, with Simon Fellows (Malice In Wonderland) behind the camera.

Co-starring with Scott are The Fall’s Branagh Waugh and Denise Gough (’71). Scott also has Holocaust courtroom drama Denial upcoming, along with a possible return to nemesis duties in Sherlock.
