(I’m still in shock that any of this happened tbh. I’m on the verge of a breakdown.)
Today was absolutely perfect. It went better than I thought it would and it’s all thanks to this guy. So I stood in line for autographs for about an hour, purposefully staying at the very end of the line (didn’t get to make that joke out loud, unfortunately) so I could get a few extra seconds with him. I met @shut-up-stan aka McKenna and we hit it off instantly and we passed time by talking about Seb. (We let people get in front of us because she had the same idea I did lmao)
So it’s finally our turn and Seb gushes over her gorgeous artwork of Bucky, I heard him say “this is amazing” like three times, and he looked really impressed. Then he turned to me and smiled and says hi and starts signing my photo (the one some of us were given at the entrance booths) while I ramble about how grateful I am to have him as a source of positivity, and I thanked him for being a good person. Then I handed over a note from my friend Courtney and my letter and the bookmark my mom helped me make for him. (We cross-stitched the Romanian flag and put “you are loved” on the back so he’ll never forget!) I told him really quickly that it was handmade and his mouth fell open and he looked so touched, his big blue eyes wide, and then he said “This is awesome, thank you, thank you!” so sincerely and initiated a hug.He reached for me and pulled me close and I tucked my face into his shoulder and he smelled so freaking good. (Kind of a warm, homey, spicy smell. I don’t know how to describe it but it was great.) Then I thanked him and told him I loved him and walked away, my legs feeling like jelly. The whole thing went super fast but he made each second so incredibly meaningful and special.
A little while later I stood in line for my photo op. It was pretty rushed as well and even though the lady said no hugging or crazy poses, I watched him scoop up two girls bridal-style (!!!) and put on props for another. Then I went and I said, “Just hug me super tight!” and he said, “Okay!” really softly and pulled me close. He squished me and he was so warm and cozy and his sweater was so SOFT on my cheek. As I (reluctantly) pulled away, I said I loved him again and he smiled at me and tilted his head a little.
(Let me add how surprised I was that he’s so much smaller in person! Seriously, he’s tiny. But oh so cute and even prettier up close. His face is incredible, y’all.)
Overall, despite the rush, he made it worth the three-month and several hour wait! I could tell how much the bookmark meant to him and I really appreciated the impromptu hug (as well as the wave on Saturday!). So lucky to have this sweet, humble, and generous man in my life and I’m so grateful for this experience. Met some great people and had a wonderful time seeing my Romanian Disney prince! Sebastian, you mean the world to me and thank you for making me feel like I mean the world to you. You couldn’t have been kinder to me and my new friends and we thank you for coming out to Austin to meet us. I hope to see you again someday. You’re a beautiful person, inside and out. Te iubesc, angel.
hiya pals! we just hit 1000+ followers last night! i’m so happy and i can’t believe that there are a thousand of you now! in celebration, i’ve decided to do a follow forever! banner done by the wonderful: @beanboyjoseph
hey everyone! I’m Alicia ✨ I’ve hit one of my personal milestones a few weeks ago and decided to quickly make this to thank all of you! and before this week starts getting busy yikes
I only actively started making content for this blog about 6 months ago so I’m quite taken aback about how many of you guys actually follow me! I wanted to thank you all so much for following me and for supporting me. I also want to thank the lovely people I follow for making my day better with a dash filled with wonderful posts! 💕
*special shoutout to my chim, sally! we both started our blogs together and i wouldn’t be making content without her tbh;; ily ma chim! plus she helps me figure out what to use as my captions for most of my stuff;;;
exactly a week ago I decided to put Simon on a semi hiatus and though I was in need of a female muse. I never thought I would get this attached to Maia already and that is mostly because of you guys! I haven’t even been able to be around that much and yet you welcomed me with open arms, ask memes, exciting plots and threads were thrown my way and I can’t thank you enough for making his such a fun experience already!
khal drogo voice : moons of my life. people who have been so warm and accepting of maia and I and/or other muses in the past.
Imagine Person A texting Person B for the first time, on a phone with physical buttons instead of a touch screen. They want to text "thank you" but they don't know how to make a space so they end up texting "thank". (Based on a true story with me as A and my dad as B.)
