Shit That Happened Sophomore Year of College

since my crazy freshman year post was a big hit, I thought you guys might enjoy a list of some of the weird things that happened this year! Enjoy!

  • someone yelling “BALL SACKS” at the tops of their lungs in the dorm hall while the clock tower chimed ominously in the distance
    • update: door slams five hours later, accompanied by a very annoyed “ball sacks, again”
    • update: week and a half later, someone slammed open the stairwell door, shouted “SUNDAY MORNING! BALL SACKS!” and then slammed it shut and ran down the stairs
    • update: it’s been 8 months. Every time I think the ball sacks guy is finally done, he shows up again at a random hour on a random day and shouts “BALL SACKS” down the hall for no known reason. I am frightened to try and learn more at this point.
  • those two semi-drunk guys on a Tuesday evening that were on a third floor balcony serenading some guys on a second floor balcony with Bohemian Rhapsody

Because There Is Never Enough LaFluff

More LaFluff headcanons

LaFluff Tag

  • Sometimes, when Lance is feelings down or he’s too quiet, someone, usually Shiro will start beat boxing, quickly followed by Hunk, Keith will help slapping the table with rhythm while Pidge and Allura have a collab rap, all while Coran is moving his arms wildly behind the entire scene. It never fails to make Lance laugh.
  • Not even kidding, in every planet they go, Lance takes ten minutes of his day to try and convince Allura and Coran to adopt one of the Planet’s pets. (He doesn’t ask Shiro because Shiro is just as weak for pets.) He doesn’t get to keep them, but he takes selfies with all of them, so they live in his heart.
  • Blue and Lance play fetch.  Enough said.
  • Lance sometimes has like extra training sessions because he asked Shiro and Keith to help him with the close range combat. More than often, they end up on the middle of the floor, panting, sweating, exhausted but content, sharing stories and praising each other. It’s funny because sometimes Lance and Keith are in the middle laying down after an endless competitive spar between them but they are so stubborn to know who won that the continue to slap each other weakly in the arm, stomach, face and Shiro is just shaking with laughter at the sight bc it’s so petty.
  • Lance mentioned the 80 era one time to Coran and then the Altean proceed to launch an entire week dedicated to the 80. Songs, decoration, food, everything and that’s how the Modern Paladin got a hold of their 84 counter parts. (“Uh…where did you guys got this, Coran?” “No one shall never know.” “Okay then…” )
  • Lance song writes, just like he plays the guitar. (You can rip these head canons out of my cold dead clammy and dry hands.) ((Also, they found a C O W in space, fite me on the fact they can find a guitar.))
  • Extending on the guitar thing; I like to believe he plays it for his team like –
  • Whenever Pidge is stubbornly fighting back the sleep, Lance will come in casually, take a seat beside her silently and Pidge will glare at him, knowing his intentions but as soon as Lance starts playing, she’s out like *snap finger* that. Lance always carries her back to her room.
  • For Hunk, he plays it when he’s feelings anxious. Lance encourages him to sing along with him and they end up singing at the top of their lungs the theme of toy story ‘You’ve got a friend in me’.
  • With Keith it’s actually a surprise, because they were hanging out in the living room, each of them minding their own business, until Lance started playing and it caught Keith’s attention. He tried to act nonchalantly when Lance asked him if he liked it but then, Lance starts singing, and Keith continues the song unconsciously, his eyes never leaving the tablet he’s playing on but his words never missing a beat. Lance can only watch from the corner of his eye in awe, because it doesn’t look like Keith’s even aware of his own singing. I JUST.WANT.THEM.TOBOND.AND.SING.TOGETHER.
  • For Shiro, they share music tips because Shiro used to play when he was younger. They bond over Shiro teaching Lance new songs from his home and some tricks. Lance’s soft songs are usually on the background for when they are debating some plan until Shiro calls him up to know his opinion on a certain plan.
  • Coran and Allura actually reach out to Lance and ask him to play some for them, being quite curious and amazed by the earth customs on music.
  • You know that trick people do where you have to balance a spoon on the bridge of your nose??? The team has a weekly contest of it but with sporks. They convinced Coran and Allura it was Team Bonding. Lance usually wins and Keith had threatened to kill him with the spork more than once.
  • I like the headcanon that the team sometimes play hide and seek and one time Lance went to Allura in her room and beg her to hide him so she hid him under the bed and when Pidge came into the room looking for Lance, Allura was like ???????? Nope. No Lance here. And proceed to kick him under the blanket when he snickered. He stayed after that and joined the gossip session with Allura and the Mice.
  • Lance is Hunk’s First Taster to everything new he does. E v e r y t h I n g. Well, right after Coran, because the Altean makes sure everything is editable before it goes into Lance’s mouth. No sick Lance, thx.
  • One time, the team found look-a-like marshmallows and proceed to make a competition on how many marshmallow they could fit in their mouth. Shiro won with 160. Lance tried to beat him and ended up with only fifteen before he freaking spat out the entire mush of marshmallows on Keith’s lap after Shiro made him laugh. Hence, another threat from Keith with the spork.
  • Sometimes, when they have a bad mission, Lance tries to let the team be moody for a while before he picks up his guitar and starts playing. Slowly, they are all together on the living room and Lance changes the pace and then the song is upbeat, pushing them and nudging the team to get up and dance at the beat. At some point, Lance leaves his guitar, connects his cellphone to the castle’s speakers and then the entire living room is a disco and they are all dancing. ((A few songs later it’s time for slow dances and guess who fucking slow dance, yeah, thats fucking right, that paring you have in mind. imagine.))

Quotes by Taylor Swift

Beauty Quotes By Taylor Swift

“Beauty is sincerity. There are so many ways, different ways someone can be beautiful.”

“I’ve never felt like there’s just one way to be beautiful.”

“Never compare yourself to the beautiful girls. There’s always someone gorgeous who will make you feel like you’re not.”

“Unique and different is the new generation of beautiful. You don’t have to be like everyone else.”

 Life Quotes By Taylor Swift

“Anything you put your mind to and add your imagination into, can make your life a lot better and a lot more fun.”

“Happiness and confidence are the prettiest things you can wear.”

“I’m beginning to think that you don’t find happiness from living your life looking ahead or back… that you find it when you look around.”

“In life and love, you learn that there comes a time to let go and move on.”

“In life, you learn lessons. And sometimes you learn them the hard way. Sometimes you learn them too late.”

“In real life, saying the right thing at the right moment is beyond crucial. Most of us fear reaching the end of our lives and looking back, regretting moments we didn’t speak up. When we didn’t say “I love you.” When we should’ve said “I’m sorry”. When we didn’t stand up for ourselves or someone who needed help.”

“Just because something is over doesn’t mean it wasn’t incredibly beautiful. Because another lesson I’ve learned is not all stories have a happy ending and you have to learn to deal with that.”

“Life is a ruthless game unless you play it good and play it right.”

“Life is like walking you take one step at a time.”

“Life isn’t how to survive the storm, it’s about how to dance in the rain.”

“The trials and tribulations in your life make you stronger.”

“The world doesn’t owe you anything. You have to work for everything you get and you have to appreciate every bit of success the world gives you.”

“We don’t need to share the same opinions as others, but we need to be respectful.”

“You have people come into your life shockingly and surprisingly. You have losses that you never thought you’d experience. You have rejection and you have to learn  how to deal with that and how to get up the next day and go on with it.” 

Love Quotes By Taylor Swift

“But no matter what love throws at you, you have to believe in it. You have to believe in love stories and prince charmings and happily ever after. That’s why I write these songs. Because I think love is FEARLESS.” 

“I don’t think there’s such a thing as falling in love too easily or falling too fast. Or loving someone too soon or trusting someone too soon…I’ve never treated two relationships the same. Some people move you and some people don’t.”

“It’s the most maddening, beautiful, magical, horrible, painful, wonderful joyous thing in the world, love.”

“I think the perfection of love is when it’s not perfect.”

“I write a lot of songs about love and I think that’s because to me love seems like this huge complicated thing. But it seems like every once in a while, two people get it figured out, two people get it right. And so I think the rest of us, we walk about daydreaming about what might be like. To find that one great love, where all of a sudden everything that seemed to be so complicated, became simple.”

“Love always ends differently and it always begins differently.”

“Love is fascinating. Wishing for it, pinning for it and the anger that comes when you lose it. I used to think that I could figure out some pattern to love, but there is no pattern. Absolutely nothing is predictable in love.”

“Love is unpredictable and it’s frustrating and it’s tragic and it’s beautiful.”

“Love will find you when you least expect it.”

“My favorite thing in life is writing about life, specifically the parts of life concerning love. Because as far as I’m concerned, love is absolutely everything.”

“Real love still happens sometimes. It’s not just something we make up when you’re nine. I have to believe that. You do too.” 

“The way I look at love is you have to follow it, and fall hard, if you fall hard. You have to forget what everyone else thinks. It has to be an us-against-the- world mentality. You have to make it work by prioritizing, and by falling in love really fast, without thinking too hard. If I think too hard about a relationship I’ll talk myself out of it. I have rules for a lot of areas in my life. Love is not going to be one of them.”

“There is a general rule that I always go by, and it’s that fall for who you fall for. Whatever small issue you get hung up on, whether it’s because they’re shorter than you, younger than you or they live far away- if you really are crazy about someone, none of that matters.”

 “To truly love is to have the courage to walk away and let the other person who wishes to be free go no matter how much it hurts.” 

Motivational Quotes By Taylor Swift

“At some point you have to forget about grudges because they only hurt.” 

“Be that strong girl that everyone knew would make it through the worst, be that fearless girl, the one who would dare to do anything, be that independent girl who didn’t need a man; be that girl who never backed down.” 

“Be yourself, chase your dreams, and just never say never. That’s the best advice I could ever give to someone.”

“Being fearless isn’t being 100% not fearful, it’s being terrified but you jump anyway.”

“Don’t ever regret being honest. Period.”

“Fearless is getting back up and fighting for what you want over and over again…even though every time you’ve tried before you’ve lost.”

“For everything I do, I think about a 6-year-old and her mom that I saw at my concert last night. I think about what those two individuals would think if I were at a club last night. I never want to be arrested, and I never want to be arrested, and I never want to get a DUI those are my moral values.”

“Giving up doesn’t always mean you are weak, sometimes you’re just strong enough to let go.”

“If somebody hurts you, it’s okay to cry a river but remember to build a bridge and get over it.”

“If you’re lucky enough to be different, never change.

“If you’re lucky enough to find something that you love, and you have a shot at it, don’t stop, don’t put it down.”

“I believe when it comes to love, there’s something intangible about who we are attracted to.”

“I’ve questioned everything about myself, every step of the way. You have to have the same amount of fear and self-doubt as you do hope and blind optimism.”

“I wish all teenagers can filter through songs instead of turning to drugs and alcohol.”

“Just be yourself, there is no one better.”

“Keeping your emotions all locked up is something that’s unfair to you. When you clearly know how you feel, you should say it.”

“Live your life like you’re 80 looking back on your teenager years. You know if your dad calls you at eight in the morning and asks if you want to go out for breakfast. As a teenager you’re like no, I want to sleep. But as an eighty year old looking back you have that breakfast with your dad. It just little things like that, that helped me when I was a teenager in terms of making choices you won’t regret.” 

“Never believe anyone who says you don’t deserve what you want.”

“No matter what happens in life, be good to people. Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind.”

“There are two ways you can go with pain: You can let it destroy you or you can use it as fuel to drive you.”

“What I’ve learned is not to change who you are, because eventually you’re going to run out of new things to become.””

“To me, Fearless is not the absence of fear. It’s not being completely unafraid. To me, Fearless is having fears. Fearless is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, Fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death.”

“Words can break someone into a million pieces, but they can also put them back together. I hope you use yours for good, because the only words you’ll regret more than the ones left unsaid are the ones you use to intentionally hurt someone.”

“You can’t have a better tomorrow if you keep thinking about yesterday.”

“You have to be happy with who you are and the choices you make. If you don’t like yourself, you’ll never be truly happy.”

“You have to stop looking in the mirror and realize that you’re living for yourself, not others.”

“You only get many firsts, each one is a blessing.”

Music Quotes By Taylor Swift

“People haven’t always been there for me but music has.”

“People like music when they’re in love, but they don’t need it as much. You need music when you’re missing someone or you’re pinning for someone or you’re forgetting someone or you’re trying to process what just happened.”

“For me, Genres are a way of categorizing music. But it doesn’t‎’t have to define you. It doesn’t have to limit you.”

“I feel in my music I can be a rebel. I can say things I wouldn’t say in real life.”

“I’ve always felt music is the only way to give instantaneous moment the feel of slow motion. To romanticize it and glorify it and give it a soundtrack and a rhythm.”

“Music is my shining light, my favorite thing in the world. To get me to stop doing it for one second would be difficult!”

“My definition of country music is really simple. It’s when someone sings about their life and what they know, from an authentic place.”

“Nobody in country music “made it” the same way. It’s all different. There’s no blueprint for success, and sometimes you just have to work at it.”

Personal Quotes By Taylor Swift

“If you’re horrible to me, I’m going to write a song about it and you won’t like it. That’s how I operate.”

“I have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to love. No one does! There’s no pattern to it, except that it happens to all of us, of course. I can’t plan for it; I can’t predict how it will end up.”

“I love all the girls who have my song on their myspaces. I love the people who come to my shows and put the pictures on here. I love the people at those shows who sing along with me. I love reading your stories in emails, some so touching they’ve given me chills. I love every single person who has wanted my autograph, because for the life of me I never really thought it would mean something to someone for me to write my name down. I love the little girls who stand in line with their mothers like I used to do. That was me. I love the couple who danced to my song at their wedding. Every comment, letter, and message. I love people who listen to the radio. I love every single person who is reading this, because you’ve let me into your life.” “I love you all so much, I just wanted you to know.” 

“I’d rather be at home and eat ice cream than go out and get wasted.”

“I’m not complicated. My complications come out in my songs. All you need to do to be my friend is like me.”

“I still love sparkles and grocery shopping and really old cats that are only nice to you half the time. I still love writing in my journal and wearing dresses all the time and staring at chandeliers.”

“I’m always going to be a hopeless romantic. Always.”

“I’m intimidated by the fear of being average.”

“I’ve always been a hugger. If we all hugged more, the world would be a better place.”

“I’ve found growing up can mean a lot of things. For me, it doesn’t mean I should become somebody completely new and stop loving the things I used to love. It means I’ve added more things on my list.”

“I’ve never been shy or secretive with the fact that if you walk into my life, you may be walking onto a record.”

“I want a guy who takes charge, but lets me have my say once in a while.”

“I want to be an over-achiever, and I want to be known for the good things in life.”

“I would love to continue in music, with writing… but I am not the kind of person who will hang around if I start to become irrelevant. If that happens, I will bow down gracefully, raise my kids, and have a garden. And I am going to let my hair go gray when I am older.  I don’t need to be blonde when I’m 60!”

“I’ve wanted one thing for me whole life and I’m not going to be that girl who wants one thing her whole life then gets it and complains.”

“I never want to change so much that people can’t recognize me.”

“I suffer from girlnextdooritis where a guy is friends with you and that’s it.”

“I write songs to help me understand life a little more. I write songs to get past things that cause me pain. And I write songs because sometimes life makes more sense to me when it’s being sung in a chorus. And when I can write in a verse.”

“So to you, or anyone else who has spent four minutes on me in some way– listening to just one song, or watching one of my videos….Thank you. I love you like I love sparkles and having the last word. And that’s real love.” 

Relationships Quotes By Taylor Swift

“As I grow up, the lessons I learn in love and relationships and how we treat each other are hopefully maturing-maturing.”

“A good relationship is all about balance and chemistry.”

“In a relationship each person should support each other. They should lift each other up.”

“You need to be happy with yourself or you’ll never be able to be happy in a relationship.”

The ‘Isak singing to Even’ headcanon/lowkey fic that ended up being 1k, that I made @sanasevaks cry with - based on what she wrote. 

So imagine on nights when Even cant sleep, he’s just. Blank and tired but he can’t fall asleep bc his heads all akjhdhsdhskzkdhdjd. Isak doesn’t know what else he can do besides give him water and just, lay next to him.

Even isn’t responding to him, only opening his eyes every now and then before tiredly shutting them as if he’s used up all his energy just doing that. 

And Isak? His heart just aches??? Bc by now this has happened a few times, he knows what doesn’t really help and what does by now when Even is like this. Isak usually just lets there be silence, knowing Even doesn’t have energy to maintain a conversation past one worded answers.

He thinks the silence will help Even fall asleep faster but really, it doesn’t. At least, not tonight.

So Isak gets up from the bed and grabs his phone. He thinks its time to try something new, he doesn’t know how much it’ll help but he’s willing to try anything. Anything to just, help Even to fall asleep. Hoping that he’ll wake up feeling just a little better in the morning.

So yeah, Isak has his phone in hand as he climbs back onto the bed and settles against Even curled up under the covers.

He scrolls through his songs and looks up a couple times to meet Even’s blank stare, and Isak’s determination to help Even sleep increases.

He realizes then, though, that he doesn’t really have any ‘calming’ songs on his phone and he doesn’t really wanna play some kanye west song for Even right now tbh.

So he goes on this app he has for the radio (yes it exists) and searches through the stations until he finds the right one. And its got y’know, those songs from the 80s/90s/2000s/ and they’re a mix between Norwegian and English (I don’t pretend to know how the radio works in Norway ok)

Isak fondly thinks that its perfect for Even though, sometimes it feels like he’s an old soul. (aka a big nerd)

So he hits play and Even flinches bc ‘oh shit the volume was too high and unexpected’ and Isak quickly turns down the volume and strokes the side of Even’s head till his eyes fall shut again.

Isak lays his phone near his waist, making sure the music isn’t too loud, but loud enough to be background noise and lays his head next to Even’s on his own pillow, just watching his eyelids twitch.

A few songs pass and Isak knows Even hasn’t fallen asleep yet. 

And he wants to sigh because it hurts him when Even hurts. He doesn’t want to fix him. But its so fucking hard to watch someone you love be in so much. Pain. When there’s nothing you can really do besides ride the wave with them.

Eventually, a song comes on. Lets say its the English version of (so cliche/corny but) Stand By Me (idk who by??) 

Lets pretend that Isak knows the lyrics okay. Lets pretend they had to do some singing thing one time at school and he liked it?? (im projecting bc we did at mine to this song)

So Isak starts to softly sing,

When the night
has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we’ll see.

And Even opens his eyes. They’re still quite blank but he’s responding in the only we he can right now.

When the sky that we look upon
Tumble and falls
And the mountains crumble to the sea

I wont cry, I won’t cry
No I won’t shed a tear
Just as long as you stand by me

As Isak sings, Even’s expression doesn’t change by much besides his eyes getting shinier, glassy. 

So darling, darling stand by me
Oh won’t you stand by me
Oh won’t you stand, won’t you stand, stand by me

Even starts blinking bc 'What. Isak is singing. singing me this and he’s nOT BADthis is too much’

Isak is singing for him.

Listen, by now, his tears are nearly spilling over bc there is so much emotion in Isak’s voice and for Even, this is the most emotion he’s felt in the two days he’s been numb to everything. Everything is just so overwhelming right now.

And then Isak inches his face even closer and his voice turns even deeper if that’s possible.

I wont cry, no i won’t cry
No i won’t shed a tear
Just as long as you stand by me

Isak sings that verse with so much feeling. He’s nearly whispering, his voice catching on the last line.

He needs Even to hear him. Hear that he’s gonna stand by him for as long as Even wants him to. 

He sees a few tears spill slowly from Even’s eyes. He didn’t intend for Even to cry. He feels slightly bad, but maybe it’s a little selfish of him bc he’s relieved that this is the first sign of emotion from Even in 2 days.

This song, Isak might be singing it, but its all about Even. It’s Isak telling him, ‘I may not fully understand how this feels and I know it hurts, but as long as you have me (till they’re 89 obvs) I’ll be here to catch you your tears.

I’ll be here to hold you. To kiss you. To laugh with you. To sing to you, with you. To stand by you. Through the good times and the bad, I’m not going anywhere.

By now, Even’s staring at Isak, his eyes a little red, a couple dried tears on his cheeks that Isak softly swipes away with his thumb.

But Even’s eyes. They’re just a little bit clearer than they were 10 minutes ago and Isak feels something wash over him. 

And as Isak delivers the last lyrics,

Darling, darling stand by me
Oh won’t you stand by me
Oh won’t you stand, won’t you stand, stand by me

His forehead comes to rest against Even’s as his hands come up to frame his face gently; kissing both eyelids, rubbing their noses together.

And Even exhales. It’s a shaky exhale but its a relief nonetheless. 

And Isak smiles into Even’s cheek as he hears it, hears Even breathing against his ear. Placing a hand on Even’s chest, feeling his heart beat steadily, Isak slowly moves his head back to lay on the pillow and looks up to meet Even’s eyes.

But they’re closed.

His face slack, breathing even.

And Isak swallows, feels like he can start breathing again. 

He caresses Even’s cheek once, softly with his thumb, before tucking the covers more securely around the both of them, content to watch Even finally sleep; his hand still against Even’s chest.


This is because of the Dad Rock with Jack and Dex thing, I’m out of control someone stop me.


  • “Bad Bob” Zimmermann was the king of rock ‘n’ roll back in the 80′s, like Sprinsteen levels of cool. He was like the most famous Canadian ever. 
  • His son Jack rocketed to stardom in his teens, starring in a pop duo with Kenny Parson. As most kids who grow up famous do, they both got involved in the party life style - and Jack ended up in trouble. Kent went on to have a solo career while Jack went into rehab. The whole thing was plastered all over the tabloids. 
  • Post rehab - Jack’s dad & record label find this group of ~delinquents~ that are need some kind of star power to get them on the billboard charts. They’re a good group of kids actually - hearts of gold - they’re just kind of… strange. But this is the music business and they’re an indie/punk (weird - says bad bob) band, so strange is good. The fans dig it.
  • “Shitty” Knight is the drummer, obviously, generally half to fully naked and always yelling about heteronormativity and the gender binary and other things that tend to get lost under the crash of his drum set. His energy is magnetic though, and Jack finds himself in the possession of a new best friend without really even trying. It’s okay… once he gets over the nakedness and the mustache.
  • Justin “Ransom” Oluransi - guitar prodigy, and Adam “Holster” Birkholtz - best electric bass player in the business, are an inseparable team and a force of nature on stage. Jack has no idea what their nicknames mean, but he’s not about to question it. 
    • Holster can play pretty much anything you put in front of him, so sometimes he plays the key board (and Jack’ll play bass). He can also play the violin, the dobro, the piano, the clarinet and the recorder. obviously.
    • Ransom is actual FIRE on the electric guitar, it’s amazing, but he never got past the whole playing the intro to Smoke on the Water thing… Holster almost threw his guitar out the window one day. It was bad.
  • Jack joins as the lead singer, though he always has a guitar in his hands. He prefers the acoustic guitar actually, but he’s always played electric on stage. In this new band, he’s secondary to Ransom, and plays rhythm.
  • The name of the band is something like H-E-DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS. or something. Like, with actual hockey sticks in the logo, ya dig? idk, i’m not creative. 
  • So they start recording some songs and with Jack’s influence they get some more attention and soon they’re getting a fan base (hello, look at all these cute boys it’d be MADNESS. the cheekbones alone jfc) and a few plays on the radio. They do some small local shows, open for a few bigger bands. 
  • They hire Larissa Duan as a manager after six months and one memorable night where the entire band almost missed a performance because they thought it was the next day. Shitty dubs her Lardo within five minutes of meeting her, and for some reason she stays, even after watching R&H go from arguing about a TV show to wrestling on the floor in about two minutes flat. She’s seems unaffected and down to earth and Jack loves her with every fiber of his grumpy heart.

Studio Space


Thanks as always to @scribefindegil for betaing!

It’s the future.

Somewhere in California, there’s a girl sitting in a painting studio. She’s finishing the first semester of her second year at art school. Maybe it’s the art school in California that you’re thinking of. Maybe it’s not. It isn’t important.

The girl’s name isn’t important, either. Or maybe it is. Maybe everyone’s name is important. Either way, her name is Aysha, and she is friends with Mabel Pines.

Lots of people are friends with Mabel the way that Aysha is. She isn’t Mabel’s closest friend, or even her second closest or third. Sometimes they eat lunch together, and sometimes they work together in the studio and talk and play loud music and laugh, and it’s nice. She’s gotten to know her a little, but most of Mabel is still a mystery to her.

She knows that Mabel loves sprinkles and 80’s music and Crayon D'Ache pencils, that she can’t control the volume of her voice or her laughter and that she has strong opinions on hot chocolate. She knows Mabel has a pet pig back home and will, at the slightest hint of skepticism that she actually owns a pig, immediately pull up two and a half gigabytes of photo evidence. She knows she hugs way too hard and way too fast, she’ll hug someone the first time she meets them without fear or shame, and it’s hard not to love her for that.

With a legion of fans around the world who could be counted in hundreds of thousands, the rocker 34, who is also the lead singer of the band The Killers, has captivated critics for his extraordinary talent People magazine put this guy behaved well, which was buttons on a Las Vegas-among the 50 most sexy  Sunday talked with him exclusively 

 “I wanted to talk to you with a bottle of mezcal trust between us, ‘Brandon Flowers-, but I see that it will be impossible.“ He laughs. When it does, the voice that gave him worldwide fame as lead singer of the rock group The Killers springs and ends in a sharp crack as I play my bad luck. So he is looking to the bottle of water that has in his hands, smiles wryly and shrugs. “I think you’re interviewing the wrong musician,” he says while digging into the plastic nails those who have received manicure and look perfectly cut, making play with his hair slicked back, “I do not even remember my last drunk. It is so far away, I can not remember. ” 

 Brandon Flowers, the current emblem Rock Las Vegas, is the most unusual I’ve heard about rockstar. You could offer a beer, a marijuana cigarette or a night of women and gambling, but he would say no and go to bed to sleep. His life is more like that of an insurance salesman than that of a musician with legions of fans who sexualized thousands every move on stage: ‘Take a teetotaler seven years without drinking alcohol and there is nothing I can do to convince him to try mezcal of Oaxaca that have led to the interview, if only because it is in Mexico City and this ancestral drink it a must for the tourists and do not smoke snuff. None of hallucinogenic pills or cocaine lines for inspiration. And when their fans, men and women fanning her underwear on stage looking luck finding it in the clubhouse and have a night of casual sex, he simply walk away with lingerie and still singing. Sometimes even he looks down to find out who that support or those pants. And for some reason, this musician of 34, very thin, which does not exceed 170 centimeters tall, boyish face and body of a teenager, who this afternoon wears sneakers anyone, either jeans and a T-shirt is the new icon either Rock on call Sin City .

 The man who last year reached the seat 44 of the 50 men sexy in the world, according to the magazine People , and not flirt with anyone but his wife. We are in the lobby of a hotel in Polanco, three floors below his room, and looks fresh, freshly bathed, with fine woods lotion that perfumes the neck. No excesses, none of wakefulness or hangover. If Elvis Presley or Jim Morrison out of their graves and they saw not believe that is part of the dynasty of the new generation rockstars millenial. And so I came to see him. To know why a guy who has captivated Bruce Springsteen, Bono and David Bowie can call themselves as “the most boring world rockstar” and succeed in a guild that requires a lifestyle as summarized by actor James Dean, “live fast, die young. ”

 “How is that being Mormon are the new example of rockstar, Brandon?” I ask. And Brandon laughs again. *****

 Brandon Flowers was born in 1981 in Las Vegas, Nevada.His first works orbited around the hotel life of the city until he heard the songHeroes of David Bowie and vocation is stamped on the chest. He left his job asbuttons and college, to devote himself to music. In 2005 he married his high school sweetheart and two years later was born the first of three children. He founded a group called Blush Response, whose success led to its members wanted to move to California, but Brandon did not want to leave their family and their home, so he created another band in 2001 and was placed in front of her vocals.In the next four years the band racked up seven Grammy nominations, two BRIT Awards, an MTV Europe Music Awards and 17 awards over 80 nominations resulting from awards to veteran bands only dream of achieving. The four members of this group called The Killers, in honor of the fictional band that plays in the music video for Crystal British band New Order. The murderers that would end the traditional way of playing in Las Vegas and emerge with a new style punk -half and half “A” rock-that led them to tread the most recognized in the world scenarios, while Brandon was catapulted to international fame. 

 His childhood traits captivated the press and fans. You do not know if you’ve sold more records with his music or posters with his face to girls who shout themselves hoarse for a kiss.

 Does it bother you that some fans are more followers of your physique your  music?  

 okay No,. At the end of the day, I’m just a humble Elvis impersonator. And that’s part of this paper: Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Tina Turner, love these rock icons by the way they look. I like them in appearance and his music. 

 -¿Te Uncomfortable there as much attention to your physical  appearance? 

No should take seriously those things. I do not do it. I want people to notice me for my songs, not if I shaved. But it does not hurt to be a sex symbol when you rock  … No, I guess not, but my life is not a common rockstar. I really like women, of course, but it’s not something I sought. No flirting with them, do not play with fire. I took years of playing and go home to sleep with my wife. I’m guessing the antirockstar by definition.

 The reason that Brandon Flowers will not fall into the temptations that every rockstar are presented, is that he is one of the most famous members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is Mormon, that is, someone whose life is guided by the precepts of the Book of Mormon , written by self-proclaimed prophet Joseph Smith. Among other things, it forbids sex outside of marriage, alcohol, drugs and give any concert on a Sunday, and the obligation to communicate their faith to others. And he takes it seriously: occasionally buttoned his white shirt and walk through Las Vegas with other Mormons of his age, name plates fastened to heart level and prophesying about the coming return of Jesus Christ. That image collides with Brandon projected on stage: she sings, she likes to dress in black, the hair stand up on a ridge, painted eyes and a little dance as the frontman of the decade of the 70. Few know that before move like a wannabe singer of The Rolling Stones, Flowers drinking an energy drink and isolated in a corner to pray with your inner voice. At the end of the concert, that corner again, pray and terminated their work. This duality has made ​​him one of the most controversial men at the scene of world rock: in November 2012, in a program of Norwegian television, Flowers was invited to a panel with the evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins, a scientist who has gained fame by extolling the virtues of atheism. There, the presenter of the show began to discuss the night in one of the most uncomfortable moments reminiscent musician.

 “When I read the Book of Mormon that impressed me is obviously a farce, “he snapped Dawkins Brandon Flowers,” is a work of quackery, “recalling that the author of the holy book was a man charged with multiple sexual-and even crimes imprisoned several times. “To say that my sacred book is a quackery offends me, you should study more,” said the singer, who then complained that a day before, he was told that should confront their faith against a renowned scientist and that the more annoying was I had to play to close the program.

 ‘You’ve complained about the way the media now treat men who openly profess their faith, like you, is it difficult for you to defend your faith? 

 Oh, yes. Every day is more difficult. The world each day farther from religion, as if science and religion are excluded. I do not think so, walk the same path. Nothing that science will find will result in the death of God. What was the moment you decided to dump your life to religion?  I went raised as a Mormon, but I became more involved when I had my first child. That helped. I realized that I would set an example for my kids and also believe in being Mormon, I am a believer, not only tradition. 

 How do you combine the lifestyle of a rockstar lifestyle with a Mormon, which is a big part of your  life? 

  'Once I made ​​the commitment to pursue my religion became easier. It’s not as hard as it seems.Initially itself was difficult because all the mythology around the rock star kind Led Zeppelin and David Bowie is fun. All these stories are exciting, so when you’re young and you do well in music you feel the need to experience what your idols did, but I soon realized that was not for me. It was the mirage of a life that is not me.

 ‘Five or six years that you do not drink  … 

 I’m happier without drinking, I am a better person without a drink or without a cigarette.

 -¿Lo Understand your other  colleagues?  

No, they think it’s something very strange, but respected. 

 What would you like people to say about you when you  die?  

 That I was a good man.Therefore I am.

 ‘And what is a “good man”? -Be generous with the family, with the children, wife. 

 That does not sound very in style:

 “sex, drugs and rock and roll” … ’ I know, it’s disappointing to some, but very exemplary for others. There are already many rockstars rampant, but I go another way.

 How is a weekend for  you?

  I love the desert, I go with my family to climb. I like going to shoot with my children, children use guns to shoot cans, bottles … do the normal things. Only we shoot at cans, never to animals. We are not hunters. When I was 8 or 9 years old my parents gave me a weapon to shoot child and out of my house killed a bird. Uffff ..!, My heart was hurt and I realized that I am not a hunter. The same thing happened with my dad one day shot a rabbit and was very depressed.Never again to point to a living being. We are soft-hearted family. 

 What do you think your religious social issues such as  abortion?

 I believe in the unique circumstances of each woman and the way they were raised, so I do not think I should say what anyone should or should not do with her ​​body.

 ‘And gay  marriage?  

 No I dont lose sleep. It does not bother me at all. It is not something that makes me angry. I serve God, my family and music. ***** 

 Since 2010, besides continuing with The Killers, Brandon Flowers has his solo project. The Desired Effect is his second solo album, after the success of the first,Flamingo  Brandon recently was presented with great success at the Vive Latino Festival before 70,000 people. This weekend the “will rock world’s most boring” topped the 2015 Festival poster Hellow in Monterrey. 

 With such a successful solo career, where do you stop to The Killers?

 ’ They are happy, because they wanted to stop for a moment.In the band a break and there was the opportunity for this project emerged.

 What do you want to accomplish with this second album? 

  I do not know, I just want to be on the radio, but only if it’s on my terms. I want to make music that appeals to everyone, but especially to me. Not only seek what is popular, but who loves making music.

 ‘Have you ever refused to make music that does not represent  you?  

 Yes, several times. I have been asked to make music that is only made ​​to sell and not so no. I’ve had songs in my hands that I know will be a success, but do not see myself singing them on stage … and I do not.

 If today you could get on stage with a band, which one would you choose?

 We were lucky, we played with U2, Coldplay and Bruce Springsteen could sing. In my to-do list is get on the stage with Depeche Mode … but see what happens … I’m nervous …

 How is that being Mormon are the new example of rockstar,  Brandon? 

  I do not know … God knows.

anonymous asked:

Why do you love Kyungsoo D.O?

Why do I love Kyungsoo? 


You mean aside from the obvious fact that D.O is literally like the most adorable cutest little (aside from Lay, that’s another story- 2nd favorite/ if i could have a second bias btw)…buttercup cupcake precious sweet thing ever. (Observe following photos)

*i should probably stop here…but there are endless pictures of Squishy soo*

Okay, so let’s go straight to the nitty gritty as in the real meat and potatoes. 

I honestly love Kyungsoo D.O because 

-He works so hard to get where he is. I mean generally that all do and everyone can say this about their ultimate bias/bias. But really, Kyungsoo works so hard. He’s not the most attractive, speaking in general, like if someone was just getting in to EXO they’d probably think Kai or Kris. He’s also not the strongest physically but Kyungsoo is a very hardworking person. He always wants to do his best and he works for it. He won’t accept anything less. It’s inspirational really. 

-One thing I love about him is how even when he loses or does something wrong, he will accept his fault and take his punishment (EXO Weekly Idol, Happy Camp, Showtime..etc.) or whatever he deserves as a result of his mistake. He’s very gentlemanly and mannerly. Usually people don’t accept their faults and try to fight back but Kyungsoo doesn’t argue. He just accepts it. Even if he doesn’t like feeling defeated, he is willing to accept it and work harder to try and do better next time. I really respect that about him. 

-His split personality…for lack of a better way to put it. When he’s with his members, he usually hits them a lot *cough* baekyeol *cough* and even makes fun of/ scolds them sometimes. He comes off sometimes as quiet and cold Some people have given him this image of being “evil” and “satan/demon like.” That always amuses me. In actuality Kyungsoo loves his members. He loves EXO. He probably just beats them up to show how much he loves them. Haha. But really, Kyungsoo is actually as sweetheart. He takes care of his members especially being “umma.” He cares about them and hopes that they are always well and that EXO will stay together a long time. (EXO Showtime ep. 5) He wants the best for himself and his members. He’s always thinking of them. Kyungsoo is very cordial and caring person. He’s very kind and cheerful. He’s very lovable.  ^_^

-Kyungsoo likes to cook. He even wants to be a chef. He cooks most of the time for his members. I bet his food taste really good. (This is always a plus for men tbh. ;) He’s also very clean and organized. 

-Kyungsoo has a great and very cute sense of humor even though it doesn’t always show. He’s pretty funny. Most times it’s usually because of something he does over something he says. Either way he’s a total goofball and wacky fun. 

-Kyungsoo weird dancing. That’s just something I love. 

Just look at it. This needs to be a thing. KyungsooBoogie, Kyungsoo Step, the D.Ougie….no? okay. *insert baekhyun’s kkaebsong*

-Kyungsoo’s sexy side. Kyungsoo is definitely not the sexual type. Like you don’t have constant gifs of him on your dash with him pelvic thrusting and touching himself like someone I know *cough* Kai *cough* *rolls eyes*…but that’s the thing. He has it. He has a side of him that can make your ovaries shiver and collapse and the reason they do that is because it happens when you least expect it. Like Kai for example, you always expect it because he’s just that damn fine like hell yeah you’re ovaries are going to turn into shriveled raisins…he’s probably the reason there are barely any ovaries left. But the thing about Kyungsoo is that even though he doesn’t show it often, he has it And boy does he have it. (observe)

(crotch…no shame…I have no shame. it’s there. i see it…no shame in pointing it out. mhmm. yes i did.)

Oooh, do not get me started on his Sorry Sorry performance. I wish I could put more but I need to wrap this up. 

-His lips, Eyes, and Smile. utter perfection. I mean..

wait…back to sexiness

this is a classic. 

back to his lips/smile/ eyes

look at him…lips, eyes, and smile. *kisses screen*

ahhh, this is longer than even i expected, well let’s move on to the most important detail of my Kyungsoo

-THE MOST IMPORTANT THING I LOVE ABOUT KYUNGSOO. (Of course the other stuff is important too, but this is the very detail that made him my bias when i was in a struggled dilemma of deciding between him and Xiumin. This is the 80% detail that made him my ultimate bias. This is the detail that made me love him.)

His Voice.

There are some people who blessed with talents and are talented. But there are some people who are blessed with gifts and are gifted. D.O is definitely the among the gifted. His voice is perfection. If you could hear what Heaven sounds like, what the water in Heaven sounds like, the sound of a golden chocolate fountain in Heaven, it is his voice. Now, D.O listens to a lot of music and he said a couple years back that he wanted the RnB voice. He wanted that voice, and now he has it and BOY DOES HE HAVE IT. Not only does D.O have that voice, He owns it with every part of his being. I didn’t know a guy could sing so well until I heard him sing. (course he’s not the only one EXO…sometimes I have a heart attack with Chen…but that’s another story)…And I don’t mean just sing. A lot of people can sing but i mean SING. LIKE SIIING. Like your life depends on it. Like you’re body will be nothing but dust and the only thing keeping you in perfect form is you singing. I know that’s exaggerated but really. Kyungsoo D.O can siiiiiiiing. I mean SAAAAAANG. His voice is like the reason I get up in the morning. His verses are moments I live for and when he sings in English. DON’T GET ME STARTED ON HIS ENGLISH SINGING. OH MY GOD. First of all, D.O’s english, is perfect. Like, you can tell there is an accent, but his pronunciation is just so perfection. perfection. Like, he might as well be fluent. (KCON 2K13)  I keep saying perfection because i can’t think of a better way to describe it. He speaks better than Kris and Kris is fluent in English. But anyways, Like if you don’t think D.O is a great singer like, you need to go watch a couple of compilations and get your life because that’s a voice that will take you to the promise land. *Insert black lady YAASSSSSS gif.* Like he can sing, I love his voice. Especially when he sings Bruno Mars.

oh i wish I could write more but i’ve been sitting here for about 1 and half hours…no i’m kidding, i’ve been sitting here since 11: 23 and it’s almost 1am. But anyways…yes this is why I love Kyungsoo D.O. 

He’s just a bundle of perfection that I want to keep locked away in my heart forever. 

let’s not forget that ^… may not be working but…I’m pretty sure we all know about it. haha

Thanks for asking the question though. I am extremely sorry that this is long. 

Okay please tell me if there's a rotbtd band AU

If not, I’m making on RIGHT NOW. Okay, here goes:

MERIDA: goes by Merida Dunn, not liking to use her full name. She’s very eclectic with her music. From ATL to Man Overboard to Katy Perry (and even her family’s native folk music sometimes), she’s hardly a stereotypical punk rocker. Yet, here she is with her undercut and her piercings, (seven so far, three on each ear and a tongue piercing). She goes for a lot of black and red clothing, occasionally finding some way to incorporate her trademark greens (without looking like Christmas, or, god forbid, Jack’s ex-bandmate, North). Her first band was called Ch@nge ur F@te, which she started up with a bunch of loser boys from her hometown. who kicked her out of her own band, which was when she moved onto Jack’s band. She plays left-handed bass (and trust me, she KNOWS how unique a big redheaded, left-handed bass player is so stop telling her).

JACK: goes by Jack Frost (instead of Overland.) He listens to just about anything punk, punk rock, rock and roll, etc. Grew up with older parents, and always listened to the ‘oldies’ music as a kid, so he knows just about any classics you could throw at him. He learned all the tips and tricks of guitar and lead-singing from his musician dad, before he died. Jack started to act out after that, dubbing it the Incident. He dyed his hair white. Hung out with the wrong people, started ‘breathing in some snowflakes’ if you know what I mean): He started a band with a bunch of misfits (who were MUCH older than him) called the Guardians. They were pretty successful but they (i.e. the official bandleader, North), wanted someone to go on the road with, so he was booted (for his underage-ness). He then met Merida, (who’s been trying to get him clean), and they’ve been trying to get a band together for ages.

HICCUP: he grew up with hardcore punks and bikers as a family. His dad (and original punk from the 80s) and uncles (and their wives, and his cousins, etc) were all a part of a touring band. His father was the head of it all, and everyone had their place in the ‘family business’ except him. He never felt a part of it all, until he met Merida at her local concert. She showed him a whole nother side of the punk and punk rock genre, and he loved it. (Honestly, he liked her more, but he would never say that.) His family decided to stay in town for a while, set up a permanent establishment, since the family was getting too big for the three tour buses they had. While some of the family Would continue to tour, some would stay. He, obviously, volunteered to stay and actually maybe be a normal teenager for once. He enrolled in the school district and get a job at the local bar that Merida frequented (not that he was there for her, oh no sir.) They became fast friends, and eventually he joined in their band (he was always good at drums).

AND LASTLY, RAPUNZEL: she had never been submersed in this culture until her schoolmate, and best friend, Hiccup, had invited her to the bar he worked at. (She had told her overbearing Mother that she was doing a study group at the library, and Gothel had believed her. She thought her little friend Hiccup was very sweet (and possibly gay), so she wasn’t worried.) Hiccup assured Rapunzel that he wasn’t, and drove her to the bar, the Snuggly Duckling. She didn’t know what to expect, in her sparkly pink sweater and her bright purple tights, but it wasn’t this. Music that spoke to her very core. Music that didn’t have to be quiet or soft or pretty and DEFINITELY not music that listened to her Mother. (Wait, did we say Mother? We meant, um…. society!! Yes, that’s it!) She fell in love, and watched the three on stage, entranced, tapping her sparkly tennis shoes together. ((Little did she know, a certain white-haired boy couldnt take his eyes off the beautiful little blonde in the front with her girly ten-year-old clothes.)) After the show, she rushed to meet the others, and to give hiccup a hug. She meant Merida, who she became fast friends with, and Jack, who was….. Jack.  She was so amazed and enthusiastic, Merida insisted she sit in on the nest band practice. She agreed, already formulating the excuse she would come up with for her mother. At the practice, they caught her singing along beautifully to their songs, and jack mentioned it would be nice to have another lead singer.

And the rest was history.

((What do you guys think? I really want to write a story now. Thought, feedback? Advice and help? I’d love it all!

Also what should the name of this AU be? All I can think of is Rise of the Brave Tangled imagine Dragons, but they’re not exactly a rock band. Thoughts?))

Like Dreamers Do

I was having feelings about Glee being gone, and I thought Kurt might be too

In his dream, a clock spins backwards. There are hazy snippets of stories that blur and blend and spin out bizarrely in the way that dreams always do: He never auditions for Glee club. He’s a Cheerio. A skank. A football player. A shadow creeping along lockers hoping to never be seen. He works in his dad’s garage instead of singing. He joins glee club but never meets Blaine, always just narrowly misses crossing paths like lines traveling parallel, never connecting, over and over again for all eternity. He becomes a teacher, a writer, a chef, a fashion icon. 

The dream splinters off and he winds up here, in the apartment in the same city at the same school pursing the same roles and performances. But he’s alone. He hasn’t just missed Blaine, he’s missed everyone.

He wakes up cold.
