In regards of my artwork Black & Gold:

#wait HOLY SHIT#IS THIS JUST COINCIDENCE OR IN REFERENCE TO THE SONG BY SAM SPARRO#because this song gets a whole new level in connection with Solas#like… religion in general in that universe#I think my mind is being blown right now

@medeadea No, it’s actually not hahah

But! You did piqued my interest in the said song so I searched for it on Youtube and instantly fell in love! I love the whole black tie costume used for the music video so I drew Solas in it.

I hope it’s an appropriate appreciation to Black & Gold by Sam Sparro!

Part 2

Note : I’m sorry this sucked so much :(

It was another week of NXT, each women had to do a promo about stepping up to be the next in line for the title. Dakota went, Sonya did too. Oh how you would love to be in the ring with Sonya, she is one of the best. This time it was your turn, standing in your ring gear facing the camera. The red light came from the camera and you had to begin. 

“ Time to let the fire burn. Play time is over, ladies meet your maker. Step up or ship out” you smirked into the camera, a giggle following. All of sudden it stops as someone stands besides you, a scowl is placed on your lips as your gaze turns to Taynara.

“ Can I help you?” you ask, taking a step back. She has her hands on her hips looking you up and down, a chuckle escapes her lips. “ Is something amusing you?” 

“ You. You think your so strong out of everyone else here. Prove it. I’ll step up, will you back down or bark back?” 

“ See you in the ring “ you pushed past her, making sure to bump your shoulder against hers. Taynara watches you walk away, she sees the camera is on her, rolling her eyes and walks off. Bobby has watched what just happens, he follows Taynara taking a hold of her shoulder and turns her around.

“ what?” she asks. He shakes his head, “ You shouldn’t of said you wanted a match with her. You have no idea what she’s capable of.”  

“ I can beat her” She shrugged like it seemed nothing. Bobby sighs, “ Were going to be out there to have your back in case Y/N has something up her sleeve.”

“ Who could she possibly have as friends? Have you seen her? Who would want to date such a ….thing” 

“ One, she’s not a thing. She’s human being with a heart and two, I did” this shocked her that someone like Bobby would be with someone like you. 

“ Are you serious?” He nodded, averting his gaze. He didn’t really want to bring up the memories and feelings. He never did let go of the fact that he still loves you. 

“ That’s just… I don’t know what to say” Bobby shook his head, putting his hand up. 

“ Let’s put this conversation aside, for now. You need to focus on your match with her” he wraps an arm around her shoulder leading her down the hall as he talked to her, giving her little bits on information on what she should watch out for. 

You walked over to catering to grab a bottle of water when you noticed Trent and Tyler sitting together at the table and Pete just joined them. You make your way over to them, sitting down next to Pete. 

“ hey boys” you greeted them. Pete turns to you, a small smile on his lips which he rarely shows. 

“ I haven’ seen yeh in so lon’ Y/N” He says. You nod,uncapping your water and taking a drink from it. 

“ Missed me?” he chuckles, shrugging. “ Somethin’ like that” you look towards Trent who was already looking at you. 

“ So Trent, did you ask them?” He nods. You look at Tyler, Trent then to Pete and see they were all smiling at you. 

“ So it’s a yes?” they all chuckled, nodding their heads.

 “ Yay!” you clap your hands before launching yourself at Pet first, who grumbles at the affection. 

He taps your back, and chuckles. He isn’t used to your hugs, You let him go racing around the table to kiss Tyler and Trent on their cheeks before rushing back to sit down.

“ Why do they get kisses and I don’?” Pete asks motioning to the other two. “ Awe, is Peter jealous?” He glares at the use of his full name, looking away like he’s mad. You lean over to kiss his cheek. “ Better?” He nods turning his head back. 

“ Yeh two should date” Tyler mumbles, you and Pete heard him turning your gaze to him. 

“ Me date Peter? No thanks, I have enough on my plate as it is” Pete turns to you. “ ‘m not good enough for yeh?” He asks putting a hand on his heart.
“ It’s not that Pete, I don’t want a boyfriend right now”

“ Does this have anythin’ t’ do with Bobby?” Trent asks. He is the only one who knows what really happened between you and Bobby. Everyone was told that things ended smoothly between the two of you but it didn’t. It was the total opposite. 

“ What happen between yeh and Bobby? I thought things went well” Tyler said. You look down at your hands, not really wanting to talk about it. 

“ ‘m sorry” Tyler adds reaching for your hand across the table. You nod silently, not really feeling up to talking anymore. 

“Look what yeh did” Pete says. “ Yeh upset her” he adds motioning to you. “ I’m fine, really” you look up at Tyler, then look to Pete then to Trent showing a fake smile, but one that they would believe. 

“ I’m going to go” you got up from the table, putting a piece of hair behind your ear before turning to leave but not before telling them about your match with Taynara.

“ we will be there with yeh” you nod, walking off to hear Trent mumbling to Tyler about “ nice going” and hear Pete say something too. 

You shut it out though, going into your thoughts. Just going around the corner putting your back to the wall as you close your eyes seeing flashback of your break up with Bobby.

 He has been talking to his ex wife again, he’s been talking to her and seeing her more. It’s not because of his kids, but you felt like he still loved her. You fought with him all the time, losing your trust. He yelled at you and said some hurtful things, the last thing he said was he never wanted to see you and he didn’t love you.

 He felt sorry for you, that you were alone and unwanted and you only covered it up with another personality. It hurt to walk away from him, you loved him so much. You thought he was the man you would be with for the rest of your life. After Bobby, you promised yourself that you would never let a man into your heart ever again. 

“ Are you okay?” you hear. Nodding your head, slowly opening your eyes to see Kyle in front of you. He had a worried look in his eyes, he takes a hold of your hand.  

“ You’re shaking” He says, you look at your hands and indeed you are shaking. Your breathing isn’t normal either. “ what happen?” he asks, bringing you in his arms, rocking you to make you feel better. You shake your head, not wanting to tell him. 

“ Please” He begs you, holding you out of arms reach and looks down at you. “ Memories” you gasp out, “ Bobby.” You manage to get out, feeling like you were losing the way to breathe. Kyle eyes go wide as he panics, running to find Bobby.

You collapse on the floor trying to grasp how to breathe or trying to breathe. It is very hard, you grabbed onto the floor as if reaching for help. It does nothing. 

Footsteps were heard and in matter of seconds, Bobby is in front of you crouching down. He takes you into his arms, “ Listen to my heart beat. Breath Y/N. Breathe.” He says, running his fingers through your hair. 

You do as he says, listen to his heartbeat finding it soothing. It silent as you try to breathe, he’s holding you and once again you feel safe in his arms. Like you used to. 

You pull away from him, not bothering to even look at him as you slip out of his grasp onto the floor next to him.

“ Thanks” you tell him, your hair is shielding your face from him, but he takes a hold of your arms helping you up. His hands are on your elbows as you just look down at the ground feeling helpless. 

“ Y/N?” he calls out to you. 

“ Yeah?” you softly ask.

“ Are you going to be okay?” you nod. He lets go of your arms, taking a finger and placing it under your chin making you look at him. “ It’s okay Y/N, everything is alright” you nod.

“ Do you want me to stay with you for awhile?” before you could answer him, someone else does. “ She won’t be needing yeh t’ stay” Tyler says from behind him. Trent is behind Tyler as he looks at Bobby. 

“ I didn’t ask you” Bobby lets you go, putting you behind him. Tyler is chest to chest with him now, glaring at him. 

“ she doesn’t need a baby sitter, not even the man that broke her t’ pieces” Trent spats pointing a finger at him, “ I know how things ended between yeh two. Y/N is very good friend of mine, I was there to help her get back on her feet. Yeh are nothin’ but-

“ Trent! Don’t!” you yell. “ Leave it” you add making your way to stand in between the two, but taking a hold of Trent’s arm,tugging him. “ Please Trent..”
He looks away from him to you, his gaze soften seeing your eyes are glossy ready to cry. 

“ Let’s go Tyler” He says, wrapping an arm around you as he turns walking away with Tyler in toe following you two. Bobby and Kyle stand there, with not happy faces before Kyle turns to him and ask what happened between the two of you.

“ A lot” Bobby responds. 

“ What did you do?” 

“ I broke her heart and she’s never going to forgive me..” He says. 

“ Do you still love her?” 

Bobby doesn’t need to give Kyle an answer because Kyle already knows the answer.

32 Musical Artists You Can Support if You Care About Media Representation

Alright, we can all have endless debates about whether Taylor Swift is feminist or not, but the best way to make sure we see progressive representation in music is to actually listen to and support marginalized artists. I have a massive music library, so here are a few musicians I’ve picked out for people looking to support artists who are LGBTQ, racial/religious minorities, disabled, or otherwise underrepresented in their various genres. Please feel free to pass it around and add to it! I don’t listen to these artists because they’re [insert marginalized status here], I listen to them because I believe each of them is a talented musician deserving of exposure and each of them has at least a handful of excellent songs. Some of them create art that specifically deals with minority status. Some do not. I cannot guarantee that none of them have said or done awful things any more than I can anyone else who I only know through listening to their music; I also cannot say that they haven’t done great things.
