Not So Picture Perfect || Kian Lawley Imagine (Requested)
“Literally all I want to do is go home. I really don’t want to be here,” I told Callie as I worked on the gym elliptical.
“What, why? You love the gym. What’s wrong?”
“Kian flies out with Jc and Dom today for the second half of the tour and won’t be back for 3 weeks.”
“Okay, I know you love him, but it’s only 3 ½ weeks. They will fly by, especially with Maya’s birthday party and Ricky’s “I Hit One Million” Bash.”
Even though I hate to admit it, she was right. It’s just 3 lousy weeks and with the technology we have today, it will be like he never left.
“Fuck, you’re right. Did you know I hate that about you?”
“Yeah and I love you too, beyotch. Call me later, okay?”
I finished my 90 minute workout and headed home to see Kian for the last few hours. I grabbed my gym bag and unlocked the door to see Kian’s suitcases against the wall. I let out a sigh and called out to him.
“I’ll be there in a sec!” he yelled back. When he came into my view, I saw that he was on the phone.
“Yeah, Dude. I’ll be there in about an hour. Okay. Bye”
I gave him a confused look,”I thought your flight was at 10 tonight.”
“It was, but there was a screw up with the airline and our flight is 4:40 now.” I looked at the clock behind him and it read 1:27 pm.
“So that means you have to leave now,” I said defeated.
“Yeah, I’m sorry Baby.”
“No it’s fine, it’s not your fault. Did you need me to drive you?”
“I don’t need you to, but I definitely want you to,” he said as he embraced me.
I helped him load his bags into the car and hopped in. I couldn’t help but think that i wouldn’t have moments like this for 3 fucking weeks. I hated it, but Kian loves his fans and would do anything for them. I would never stand between that.
After what seemed like the shortest ride in history, we pulled up to his terminal. Jc and Dom were already out there waiting for us and I helped unload Kian’s things. We stood there for what felt like forever, just holding each other.
“Ugh, ew! Come on already, Vitaly’s inside!” JC whined beside us. Kian and I decided to gross him out even more and started tongue battling each other.
“God! Didn’t you guys do enough of that before he left?!” asked Dom.
“We actually didn’t,” I said to Kian, looking kind of amused.
“Well this is going to be one uncomfortable flight,” he joked.
“Speaking of flight, we gotta catch ours!” JC said.
“Fuuuck, I don’t want you to leave.”
“I know, but I’ll be back soon, okay.”
“Okay, have fun.”
“I will, I’ll call you when we land,” he said running into the airport.
“I’ll be waiting,” I said to myself.
When I arrived back to our place I was finally able to take a well needed shower. When I was done, I ordered food off of Postmates and caught up on ‘Are You The One?’ I really hated being here without Kian, but I had to remind myself that I did it during the first half and was (somewhat) fine.
My phone started to ring and I got excited when I saw that it was Kian calling.
“Hey, Baby. How are you?”
“Lonely. How was the flight?”
“Pretty good. Some kid threw up though, which made Dom almost throw up.”
“Ew, but kinda awesome, haha.” Our conversation didn’t last long due to the fact that he had a long day tomorrow and it was late where he was.
I decided that it was time for me to go to bed as well and try to not be so bleh.
The next few days were getting easier and easier. Almost two weeks have already passed and Maya’s birthday party was a great distraction. I hear from Kian every night and every night I miss him more. Tonight is Ricky’s bash and I’m really excited. I took me like 4 hours to get ready, but I was almost done. I was applying the last bit of makeup when my phone buzzed.
I heard Callie come in and we naturally had to capture this moment.
That night was complete blast. I can’t stress how proud I am of Ricky T for reaching over one million youtube subscribers. Callie and I finally got back to my place and I was about to take a shower when my phone started to ring.
“Hey, I saw your Snap. You look beautiful, how was the party?”
“It was really fun, but tiring. How’s the tour going?”
“It’s good! The fans are amazing, the closer I get to coming home, the more anxious I get to be with you.”
“*Sigh* I can’t wait for you to come back.”
“I know me either, but I’ll let you get some rest and I’ll do the same. Sweet dreams, Babe.”
“You too, Kian. Good night.”
The next few days were quite boring, but Kian comes home in a little over a week and I’m so happy! I had been trying to reach him for the last few hours now, but he wasn’t picking up. I finally gave up on him and tried calling JC, but it was too loud to hold a conversation. My last resort was Vitaly who evidently was asleep and didn’t know anything.
I realized that this was the first night Kian hadn’t called me and I got a sort of uneasy feeling in my stomach. I quickly shook it off and decided to go to bed.
It was about 7:15 am when I was woken up by the constant vibration of my phone. After about 2 solid minutes, I groggily turn over and check what it is. I see that it is a bunch of Twitter notifications and I decided to open them. I see an assload of pictures of Jc with some random girl wither ass out, but that’s when I see it.
“What the fuck?” I say to myself as I read the tweets. I feel my heart drop as I see my boyfriend cradling another girl’s ass. I immediately decide to call him and of course it goes straight to voicemail.
Over the course of the next 9 days, I didn’t leave the house. Ricky and Callie came over to keep me company, but I just wanted to be alone. Kian tried calling every 5 minutes, except when he was on stage, but I ignored all of them. Even the rest of the boys were trying to contact me, but I only talked to Vitally since he wasn’t there that night. He tried to get me to talk about it, but knowing that he would relay it all to Kian, I just changed the subject.
So many people were talking about what happened, even Kian’s ex Andrea. All I could do at this point is cry and look at old photos of Kian and I.
Kian comes back tomorrow and I had to make a hasty decision. I was in the middle of my thoughts when my phone vibrated over and over again. I thought I shut that fucker off. I go look at it and I see it is the man of the hour once again.
I can’t help but smile a little bit as I cry even harder now. Is it worth letting go? Is it worth staying? Then he said it.
These two episodes are right next to each other in the book and it’s so much funnier this way because these are the same scientists sixty years apart, and the technology’s aged but the scientists haven’t
Total Drama is back and more diverse than ever! The season, named Total Drama Dundie, scheduled to air on Teletoon in January 2019, will consist of twenty-six episodes and an hour special. Julie Giles of Fresh TV has said this season is aimed towards the long-time fans, and aims to please new viewers - she believes this season will “return to its roots”, and meet the criticisms of fans, with secondary characters returning, and the inclusion of same-sex relationships to make the show really diverse.
“Originally, the show was going to be called Total Drama Diversity, commented Giles. “But by the time we made the logo, we saw a lot more demand for a ship of Duncan and Sadie, which fans dubbed ‘Dundie’. This got us really thinking about what the fans want, and since Total Drama Dundie shares the same initials as ‘Total Drama Diversity’, we just altered the logo ever so slightly. So in a sense, the logo, and the season, has many meanings,” she continued.
“Of course, we could not create a whole season just about Duncan and Sadie - they need a support cast. We logged onto our Tumblr and checked our messages - after scrolling through numerous ‘how did Dwayne and Junior meet?’ messages, we saw a demand for the inclusion of LGBT+ characters, and that’s when I had the genius idea to include gay relationships in the season. Of course, this is a controversial topic, so each gay couple only kisses once this season and in every country outside of North America and Canada, however, these kisses will be censored - this was the compromise we made with international broadcasters to ensure Total Drama Dundie can be seen worldwide. Of course, there will be plenty of kisses and exchanges between Duncan and Sadie to compensate!” Giles said.
Julie Giles generously offered her time for a Question and Answer about Total Drama’s sixth season.
Q. Where is Total Drama Dundie set?
A. A season with so much drama could only be set on the explosive island, Pahkitew island. Still damaged from the Total Drama Pahkitew Island finale, we will see some changes to the island - including two brand new massive statues, erected for Duncan and Sadie, to truly reflect the season.
Q. What is the season’s plot?
A. In the universe of Total Drama, the producers are being criticised by fans after Gwen and Courtney announce they had kissed and started a relationship in ‘Total Drama All-Stars’, following their fight in the seventh episode. Inspired by their courage, numerous campers from Total Drama announce their homosexual experiences on-season, which never made it to TV, despite the heterosexual moments being heavily prominent in the series. The fans insist they’re homophobic, not realising how controversial a kiss between two girls really is. To prove how controversial it is, Chris McLean, the show’s host, pitches a brand new season - consisting of only gay couples. However, fans then criticise him for the blatant heterophobia. Therefore, the Total Drama producers set up a poll on which heterosexual couple they would like to see return for another season of Total Drama. Duncan and Sadie, who became prominent in the media following Duncan’s release from jail, top the polls and qualify for the sixth season. Joining them are his ex girlfriends turned lovers Gwen and Courtney, Gwen’s other ex boyfriend and Total Drama hunk Justin, reality TV pros Noah and Owen, E-Scope members Eva and Izzy, failed athlete Tyler and Alejandro’s brother Jose.
Q. What can you tell us about Duncan and Sadie?
A. Chris bailed Duncan out of jail so he could return as a potential helper for the Total Drama All-Stars finale. Stuck in a balloon, Duncan drifted away - all the way to Toronto, when his balloon burst over Sadie’s garden. She was making out with her now ex-girlfriend, Katie. Sadie questions Duncan on his time in prison, why he’s out of prison, and their time on the canoe during Total Drama Island. Duncan falls in love with Sadie, but does Sadie reciprocate? Or is she just using him to make a comeback on Total Drama? We’ll find out in the sixth season.
Q. Can we expect a cameo of Katie?
A. Maybe more than a cameo. Do you really think she takes lightly to her lover using a boy to get camera-time? Absolutely not! We’ll allow Sadie and Duncan to develop until episode thirteen, when you can expect an explosive return from Katie - and she won’t be alone…
Q. Who will accompany Katie in her return?
A. Katie is not the only one furious with the casting of the season. Being the lowest ranking Total Drama Island camper (even below Ezekiel, due to his return in Total Drama World Tour, Total Drama’s third season), she truly believes she should be returning for a comeback. However, even the highest ranking contestants believe they should be in the next season - including Queen Bee Heather and boyfriend Alejandro! The two heterosexuals sue Total Drama after discovering they topped the Best Heterosexual couple poll and Chris rigged it for a Duncan and Sadie win, for reasons we will discover in the shocking finale. But are they really heterosexual? The return of the dynamic duo will come with the revelations that Heather and Courtney were ‘friends with benefits’ in Total Drama’s second season, Total Drama Action, following Heather’s attempt to steal Courtney’s hair. Alejandro spills all on experimenting with his sexuality with with Owen, Tyler, Noah, and Duncan in First Class on Total Drama World Tour, and insists his brother, Jose, is using Tyler as a way to get to him. Is he right with his predictions? How will he react with the tension? And what does this mean for Aleheather?
Q. We cannot ignore that contestants have shared heterosexual relationships - namely Gwen with Trent and Duncan. Will these relationships be acknowledged?
A. Absolutely - in fact, we will be addressing this later today (Friday 4th August 2017) in a special video focusing on Gwen’s relationships with Trent and Duncan, dubbed ‘Gwent’ and ‘Gwuncan’ respectfully, on the official Total Drama YouTube channel. Stay tuned!
Q. What can you tell us about the gay couples?
A. As previously mentioned, Gwen and Courtney hooked up during Total Drama All-Stars, resulting in their relationship. Eva and Izzy became major LGBT icons following their campaigns as Team E-Scope. Initially, they started to support their gay friend and fellow Team E-Scope member Noah, who hooked up with Owen on a dating TV show they did together in which homosexual acts were not censored, but once Noah and his boyfriend Owen went onto the Ridonculous Race, they started to campaign together and became closer and closer, before realising their love for each other.
Trent and Justin always had an awkward friendship - that much was apparent in Total Drama Action. After complimenting Justin’s good looks when selecting him for his team, the Killer Grips, Trent was confronted by Justin, and was asked if he was gay. Trent revealed he was bisexual, and in response, Justin came out as gay. They both mentioned they never kissed a guy before, and consequently, they shared a kiss alone in their trailer. After a passionate night of kissing, Justin says he fakes being heterosexual as homosexual models are paid less than heterosexual models, and begged Trent to not reveal his secret. Trent assured him he wouldn’t, and noticing Gwen and Duncan’s possible relationship, began an official relationship with Justin, which only became public a month prior to the season airing after Justin developed a scar on his ankle, ruining his model career for life, and therefore found no use in hiding his love for Trent. This will be revealed during a catch-up conversation shared between Justin and Sadie.
Jose really is the odd one out this season - he is the only contestant who was not originally a camper in any season, only briefly appearing in Total Drama All-Stars. As he was the only one who saw Gwen and Courtney hook up while briefly on Camp Wawanakwa, Chris selected him, making him the only new contestant. Tyler came to Alejandro for comfort after Lindsay and Beth came out as lesbians, but only found a robot and Jose at the Burromuerto household door. Jose comforted Tyler, and a kiss led to a relationship between the two. Their popularity rivals Alejandro and Heather’s in the media, and Jose applied, hoping to win and best his brother following his humiliating defeat during Suckers Punched. But is Tyler aware of Jose’s true intentions? All will be revealed…
Q. You just revealed Lindsay is a lesbian and therefore qualified for Season 6. Lindsay is a massive fan favorite. Why has she not returned? Especially when there could be drama between her and Tyler?
A. Lindsay and Beth are now living in France and Chris cannot find a way to contact them.
Q. How will eliminations occur? Will each couple act as one contestant?
A. Even though they are partnered up, each contestant will be individual. As in, Owen will be eliminated, but Noah will not. (That’s the first elimination of the season!)
Q. Can we expect any cameos?
A. Ezekiel will appear in the background of each episode with his new boyfriend Shaun! Also Dave’s skeletal remains will be scattered around the island - keep an eye out for them!
Q. Love triangles are a major part of Total Drama. Can we expect any this season?
A. Absolutely! Katie, Sadie, and Duncan will have one, obviously. Chris and Chef are revealed to be in a relationship mid-season, but how will Chris’ ex, Larry, react? Drama ensues when Larry’s rage has long-lasting consequences on the Total Drama franchise. Their child will also return, more grown up.
Q. Arguably, the first diverse relationship was Bruno and Blaineley. What are they up to now?
A. Funny you should mention that. Let’s just say that not everyone will survive Total Drama Dundie, and our seventh series, Total Drama Bridgepole, will be hosted by Blaineley, while Bruno acts as Chef.
Q. Total Drama Bridgepole? What can you tell us about this seventh season?
A. Please only ask questions about Total Drama Dundie.
Q. Okay okay. How diverse really is Total Drama Dundie? Does the diversity stop at LGBT representation?
A. Not at all. Goth oppression is becoming more of a problem in society, and we did not shy from tackling this issue in the sixth season. Goth icon Gwen will guide a fellow camper as they discover they are goth, hopefully inspiring more of our viewers to be proud about being goth.
Total Drama Dundie is set to air on Friday 25th January 2019 with a special two-part premiere. An episode will air each week. With a seventh series to follow, it seems Total Drama will be here for a long time to come.
