PART I


“You’re really trying to tell me that Low is David Bowie’s best album to date?” Jonathan nodded, opening the brown paper bag that held his lunch.

“That’s exactly what I’m telling you,” Y/N’s eyes widened, then shoved her lunch tray to the side. She leaned on her elbows, her hands in front of her.

“I could name five other Bowie albums, easily, that blow Low out of the water,” Jonathan took a bite of his sandwich, then motioned to Y/N.

“Go on then,”

Station to Station,” Y/N’s right index finger began to point to the fingers on her left hand to count. “Aladdin Sane, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars -obviously-, Diamond Dogs, and my number one favorite Bowie album of all time,” Jonathan mimed exactly what Y/N was saying with her, “Hunky Dory.” Y/N took a deep breath as she finished, then shoved a french fry in her mouth. “It’s like I don’t even know you sometimes,” She shook her head and shrugged her shoulders jokingly, “But, I mean, Low is still a great album,” That made Jonathan chuckle. A body suddenly appeared on the bench next to Y/N, scaring the life out of her. She had one hand on her mouth and the other over her heart to stop herself from screaming. Y/N turned her head and saw Steve Harrington with a dumb grin on his face.

“Tonight?” He looked at Y/N expectantly.

“What?” Her pupils were still wide from the shock, and the word sounded pretty dumb coming from her.

•Insight of the actor’s views on their character

The not so secret diary of Gabriel Agreste

Because I needed some crack in my life. This is a gift for @geek-fashionista who requested my joke idea become a fic. 

And because writing ridiculous Gabe content cheers me up and I needed a good pick me up. (Hopefully this will get me back in the mood to finish the next chapter of Cut from the Same cloth. If nothing else it felt good to really sit down and write again.) 

Anyways- enjoy. 


The not so secret diary of Gabriel Agreste

(Edited and catalogued by Nathalie Sancoeur)

March 18th

So apparently driving 4 employees to a nervous breakdown in the span of 2 weeks is a problem to my board of directors. They claim it’s ‘not good for the company’. Also, apparently, backhanding one of them during the meeting for suggesting I ‘take a leave of absence to deal with the loss of your wife’ counts as assault.

To avoid charges, and more importantly a forced sabbatical, I have agreed to see a therapist. Hence this ridiculous writing exercise.  Oh well. At least it is only one wasted hour a week as opposed to several months of sitting in my house, watching them drive my company into the ground with their ineptitude.

March 25th-

My therapist says that I have a problem.

Of course I have a problem! My wife is missing. Honestly, I have to pay this man?

He says that I need to be ‘focused on healing and rebuilding a new sense of normalcy instead of lashing out at the people around me.’

Well perhaps if the people around me weren’t so incompetent I wouldn’t need to lash out so much.

Nathalie- does it count as attending my therapy sessions if I send a proxy in my place? Please investigate.

March 30th-

My therapist has informed me that I am developing an obsession, and that he is concerned that the loss of my wife and my need to get her back is driving me to an unhealthy dissociative state.

Well maybe that’s why it is so important that I get her back. Did you ever think of that? Then I won’t need to waste my time adjusting to my new circumstances, because everything can just go back to the way it was. It’s really not that complicated. For someone whose job it is to ‘help me cope with my grief’ he is quite the pessimist. He keeps insisting we discuss the possibility of if she never comes back. Thank God these sessions are only an hour long, I don’t need to get charged with assault again.

Film Techniques in Marvel Movies (8/??)

Cinematography Technique: Racking/Pulling Focus

/Racking focus is the process of switching the focal point from one subject/object in a frame to another subject/object that is closer or farther from the camera; by racking the focus from one plane in the scene to another, you can direct the attention of the viewer and can also lend a dramatic flare to certain shots./

You were pulled out of sleep as Merle’s body slipped out from underneath your grasp. Your hand curled in the sheets, trying to regain that familiar touch. Your eyes peeked open as you looked up at Merle, whose darkened form was hunched over on the edge of the bed. Stifling a yawn, you pushed yourself up on your hands and crawled over to where he sat. It was the dead of night, but you could still make out his features as your eyes begin to adjust to the darkness.

He didn’t make a sound as you scooted up behind him, your legs on either side of his as you pressed your face against his back. Your fingers gingerly brushed over the scars on his back, time having healed the physical reminders of the abuse he endured at the hands of his father, but never the psychological ones.

“Didn’t mean to wake ya,” Merle mumbled.

You craned your neck up to press soft kisses to the back of his neck as he sighed deeply. “It’s fine,” you cooed as you wrapped your arms around his torso, rubbing softly over his chest as you felt his heartbeat in your palm.

Finally finished watching Iron Fist. I will now say stuff about it.

- Firstly, I really disliked Danny from the start. But now I just dislike him mildly. Like, once you accept that this is somebody that was totally abandoned at 10 by family & grew up in isolation in a monastery getting beat up & taught to be a weapon, you can see why he does a lot of the annoying stuff he does.
- Finn Jones isn’t a horrible actor so the character kind of grows on you.
- About the whitewashing issue, dare I say that given how dumb Danny is throughout most of the series, Asian people dodged a bullet there? Like seriously, Asians deserve better characterisation.
- CLAIRE TEMPLE IS AN ACTUAL BADASS & ANGEL & I STRIVE TO BE AS RESOURCEFUL AS HER.
- Also I am so pumped that she has decided to adopt “Sweet Christmas” as a part of her general vernacular.
- Colleen is complex & simple and she’s not my absolute favourite but I still really like her. Like, I needed her to be a part of The Hand, that plotline was awesome.
- Speaking of, I really hate Bakuto but I also NEED more of him.
- And Gao…I don’t even know what to say. Old female POC who is badass & has & is gonna outlive everybody? Best thing Marvel has ever done tbh.
- I want to strangle Davos but also like only person closest to my ethnicity in the series & has better fight scenes than the main protagonist?!! Ha!
- Harold Meachum is the scum of the earth (but THAT WAS FARAMIR AND I CAN’T EVEN).
- Joy Meachum. So. Fucking. Brilliant. I just knew the moment I saw her in the first episode that this was gonna be her villain origin story. It breaks my heart but it also makes me want another season of this show.
- Ward. Meachum.
- I love Ward Meachum.
- Like, LOVE HIM.
- I am so sorry I judged you in episode 1, Ward.
- WARD MEACHUM IS THE BEST THING ABOUT THIS SHOW.
- Like, Ward’s characterisation is not perfect but it is the closest thing to it. Most engaging character on the show.
- Tom Pelphrey is beautiful & he is terrifying and heart breaking as Ward Meachum.
- I love all the Netflix Marvel series & they have so many wonderful supporting characters. But Ward Meachum is second only to Claire.
- Ward Meachum deserves his own show. Preferably one where he is on vacation, his bank account has money & his dad stays dead.

Ask and ye shall receive. Here’s the next chapter!


After his initial visit, Akande made it a point to come and see you. It started with him requesting for you to clean up his facial wound, cleaning it for him despite giving him the instructions of how to do it properly himself. After it healed up, it seemed as if he was making up an excuse to pay a visit to your office. At first, you chalked it up as being clumsy but after careful examination, it was obvious that the injuries he was sustaining were self-inflicted. You felt inclined to call him on it but at the back of your mind, you felt a pang of guilt. What if this self-harm was some kind of call for help? Being locked up for 22 hours a day with only 2 hours of recreational activity was no doubt maddening. Perhaps he found solace in your company. Whatever the case, you decided to keep your mouth shut about it.

You were going over your schedule for the next week. Inmates in cell block 4 through 7 were due for their annual checkup again, you really did need an assistant or something. Organizing all this stuff on your own was not only a huge hassle but also incredibly draining. The door buzzed and unlocked. Through the corner of your eye, you saw one of the guards enter the room and drop off a file. You could make out the red line along the file with your peripheral vision and knew instantly who’s file it was.

“I think he’s taken a liking to you doc”, quipped the man who you had come to know as Phil.

You smiled and waved farewell as he quickly ducked back out the door again. Phil was basically the errand boy when it came to delivering files and documents around the supermax prison. Since Akande frequented your office near daily, you and Phil were becoming fast friends. Maybe one day you could go out for coffee or something? You set your scheduling papes down, deciding that you may as well just sit patiently and return to it after Akande was done his sudden appointment. Sure enough, not even 2 minutes later the door sounded.

You twirled around in your office chair and watched the hulk of a man wander in, his usual entourage of armed guards in tow right behind. The moment his hazel eyes met yours he broke into that wide smile that gave you butterflies.

“Hello Doctor!” he greeted with enthusiasm.

“Hello, again Akande. What brings you in this time?” you ask.

He smiled more and strode over to the examination bench. The guards had long since stopped paying attention to your work after the first 20 visits. Now they just sort of talked amongst themselves until you sent the inmate on his way. Today, it would seem that Akande had an abrasion on his left leg. He claimed that he had ‘tripped’ and was requesting you to clean it properly out of fear of it becoming infected. You rolled your eyes and smiled, knowing full well that the issued prison jumper uniform was designed with thick fabric for this exact reason. He rolled his pant legs up as you got your gloves and went to work at his reddened and swollen knee.

“You know doctor, any day that I get to see you is a good day,” he said with a smile as you gently patted an alcohol wipe to his irritated skin.

“I thought a good day was when they didn’t give you that disgusting gruel for lunch?”

A hearty laugh erupts from him, pride swelling inside for making him laugh so hard. The guards quiet down for a moment but eventually continue their own conversations. Akande stared down at you with kind eyes once his laughter died down.

“Ah, I haven’t laughed that hard in 6 at least years! You never fail to make me smile… Your boyfriend is a lucky man.”

You smile back at him half-heartedly before looking back to his leg. You didn’t actually have a significant other. Your ex dumped you 4 months ago and the heartache was still fresh. Having a ‘boyfriend" was just a lie you were told your patients in hopes of budding out any romantic or sexual feelings towards you. It helped for more of your sane patients, but some of your more… 'aggressive’ ones still paid no mind to the imaginary relationship. Akande was always respectful though. Always polite…. Always kind… You quickly blinked your thoughts away as you tossed out the dirty wipe.

“Speaking of your boyfriend, do you have plans of getting married anytime soon?” he inquired. You shifted awkwardly to stand, pulling off your gloves.

“No… We’re uh, not ready to get settled down quite yet,” you lied.

Akande rolled his pant leg back down before swinging his leg back and forth as if to test it. He stared off with a Smile on his face.

“Hmm… That really is a pity. You are an amazing woman [Y/N]. He better realize that soon. Because if he doesn’t, one day someone might just steal you away from him,” he muttered with a smile.

You pause.

This was the first time Akande had called you by your first name. And now that you thought about it, you weren’t sure you ever told him your first name? He always called you 'doctor’. And what did he mean by stealing you away? Just as you were about to speak up, his hand found its way to your head again, caressing your hair the same way he did every time he finished his visit with you.

“Thank you, doctor, again. I hope you have a pleasant day,” he praised as he strode over to the guards by the door to leave.

Once again, Akande left you speechless. He was making it into a habit it seemed. Yes, he was certainly intelligent and charming, the closest thing to the perfect guy you had ever met. In any other circumstance, you could have fallen in love with him easily. A fantasy world where he was still a good person who obeyed the law, where you were not his doctor and you didn’t meet while he was being punished for his actions. Maybe in another life things could have been different…

- - -

The heavy metal enforced door slammed and began clicking with the multitude of security locks as Akande wandered into his cell. He plopped down onto his cot with a sigh. He lay still for a few moments, pondering a few things before slipping his hand into his pillowcase and pulling out the tapped wired bug placed there and speaking into the microphone with a smug grin.

“Doomfist to Operations… What information did you get on her?”

Libra woman is enchanting and charming, she is the master of the art of seduction. The environment is important for Libra, make sure the first date is somewhere classy and elegant with posh surroundings, such as lunch at an elegant bistro than a walk along the tree-lined pathways of a ravine in the summertime with the flowers blooming. Libra will feel at peace and love it. Give her compliments and tell her how much she is appreciated. She may reply bashfully but with each compliment, the radiant glow inside her will shine brighter and brighter. Once the initial seduction is over with and the relationship has become more stable, she will stop her sweet seductive ways, not because she has completely lost interest, but it is because she is lazy in love. She may need a few days away without you, this is like pressing the reset button on the relationship. Be romantic with her and she won’t lose interest. Be dramatically romantic, sweet love notes tucked in her pocket, flowers, these things bring great joy to the Libra woman and they make her feel special, which is essentially important to the Libra woman.


MAN:

The Libra man is very popular with women because he is charming, harmonious and can relate to women on their level - a characteristic of Libra is the ability so see the world through the eyes of others. Libra men do this to seduce the girl and it always works. He always seems to be on the search for the perfect women, unfortunately, that does not exist. The closest thing a perfect woman could do is appreciate and be in awe of his stardom. Look up to him, admire him, he is a sucker for flattery. Do not nag or pick on his inability to make a decision, it will simply put pressure on him. You make the decision if he cannot, he will happily go along with you and deep inside will be happy that you took control.

The heartache started when you opened the door to a wide-awake Jongin asking you for a big favor.

“I know it’s too early for this but can you come with me to the mall? I really need to put a gift box for my Valentine.” You can see how Jongin acts antsy, his voice sounded distressed.

You can hear your heart crumbling to little pieces but you showed a smile full of glee instead. “But isn’t it Valentines Day today?”

“Yes, it is.”

You scratched your head, confused. “Then why don’t you just take her out on a date later?”

“Because,” Jongin whined as he stomped his feet like a kid he was. “She’s taking the evening shift and it ends by midnight. Most of the restaurants are closed by that time. So, I’m giving her a gift box instead.”

“And what does that gift box consist?” You raised your brow completely puzzled on why it had to be you he had to drag along.

He shrugged in response. “I don’t know! I’m asking you to come with me cause I’m a guy. I’m clueless about what girls want to get on Valentines Day. Now, come on, we’re wasting time.”

Jongin grabbed your hand but you loosened from his grip. You planned to just stay at home the whole day. Not spend it with the guy you like and buy gifts for another girl, who’s clearly not you by the description of it. “No, Jongin. Me and the girl have different preferences. This won’t work.”

“It will. You’re the closest thing I have to buying the perfect gift. Please go with me,” And being the Jongin you knew for the past three years you’ve spent in this college, he pouted and naturally, you melted in your spot.

That is why you’re strolling around the mall, searching high and low for the perfect gift for Jongin’s Valentine. If you look at the bright side, you’re gonna spend the entire day with Jongin by your side. The bad part was the time you would spend with him would equal to the happiness another girl would receive in the evening.

“So, what type of flowers should I give her? Or any specific brand of chocolates you’d recommend?” Jongin questioned, poking each food on the shelf. You two were at the supermarket looking for, well, chocolates and maybe gummy bears, as Jongin requested.

“I honestly think chocolates are overrated. I prefer gummy bears. But since you specifically want chocolates then I recommend Milka. The one with the oreo filling inside.”

You were rambling on and on about what flowers to choose and what other things to put inside the gift box but Jongin seemed to be preoccupied with his phone, typing away. His attention was completely split in half because he would reply with a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ or sometimes hum in response. At the same time, he’d continue texting whoever it was he was texting.

Irritated, you stopped your tracks, “Jongin are you listening to me?”

“Huh?” He looked up. “Yeah.”

“Then what did I just say?”

With confidence covering his voice, he said, “You think white roses are the most romantic flowers to give to a girl. You prefer gummy bears over chocolates. You’d like to wear a backless dress but your mom wouldn’t let you. And you hate it when someone serenades you.”

Your mouth was agape when he remembered every detail you said. Jongin did listen to you the entire time. Amazing how he could multi-task so easily. He continued, “Did I miss something?”

“No. You were spot on to be honest.”

Jongin flashed you a soft smile that you could almost hear your heartbeat reverberating in your ear. “Really? Good.”

The rest of the day went on smoothly. Both of you went to a boutique to buy the last addition to the gift box. A dress. According to Jongin, you were the same size as his Valentine. What caught you off guard was that he revealed to you who his Valentine really was.

“Soojung?” Your voice quivered upon the name. The rumors were true. They were really dating. “Soojung’s much more petite compared to me. You’re probably mistaken.”

“No. I’ve seen everything. And judging from it, I think you two are the same size,” Jongin calmly stated as his eyes raked your entire figure. Your mind tried to process his words but it only converted to poison that shot through your heart. He’s seen everything. He’s seen everything of Soojung.

“Now would you please, please, pleaaase pick a dress out for Soojung. For me?” He practically pleaded and it was hard for your part to say no. Dumbfounded, you automatically nodded.

Jongin waited outside the dressing room while you changed into a sleek black dress. Backless, of course, since it wasn’t you who’d be wearing it for future dates with Jongin.

You closed your eyes and tried to make the most of it. You imagined Jongin right in front of you in a nice tux, enjoying your candle-lit dinner in some fancy restaurant down the street. You tried to make the most out of your imagination but when your eyes fluttered open, you were nothing more but a mannequin of what has yet to be.

Nothing more than a second option.

Insecurities started piling up inside your mind. Taking a good hard look at the mirror in front of you, you were convinced that Soojung would look much better in the dress you were wearing. She’s definitely much classier and much more beautiful than you. She was better than you in so many ways.

You snapped out of your daze when you heard a knock. “Are you alright? Are you done in there?”

“I’ll be out in a sec,” You let out a heavy sigh as you gazed at your reflection once more. Always the second best.

Jongin held his breath the moment you walked out of the dressing room. He hasn’t seen anyone who personified elegance accurately just like you did. At that moment, he just wanted to snake his hands around your waist, lock your arms around his neck and dance the night away under the moonlit sky.

He imagined you shying away from how intense his deep brown orbs were piercing right through you and that you would lean your head on his neck as a slow song played in the background. Jongin would take time to whisper all the sweet things he could possibly think at the moment. He would take all the time in the world to whisper to your ear how beautiful you were in that dress. Screw that. Jongin would tell you how beautiful you are the entire time he knew you.

But, it was too late. Jongin had Soojung. You? You had no one and that squeezed Jongin’s heart painfully.

Jongin didn’t say anything and the silence was killing you inside. Was it the dress that horrible on you? You averted your gaze to the floor in embarrassment.

Come night time, you found yourself willingly dragged by Jongin to the restaurant Soojung was working her shift in. The gift box was wrapped in a pink box and a matching red ribbon.

You and Jongin sat down when he grabbed the gift box hurriedly. “Wait there. I’ll look for Soojung at the staff room then we can go.”

“Oh,” Jongin halted then pulled out the black dress he bought. “I just remembered Soojung doesn’t wear backless dresses. You can have it. Think of it as my Valentines gift for you.”

Begrudgingly, you accepted his offer. At least you had something to hold on to even if it wasn’t originally meant for you.

Jongin scanned his surroundings. You followed his sight. “You might want to change into that dress so you can blend in the surroundings. The manager might call on you for not ordering. We wouldn’t want any trouble, right?”

“I’ll be right back.”

You followed Jongin’s request. True to his words, Jongin came back with Soojung trudging behind him. But Soojung wasn’t dolled up, it was Jongin. He wore a nice tuxedo and a matching black bow to complement his attire. On his hand, he carried a big box neatly wrapped. Bigger than the one the two of you bought.

“Wait,” you said, shocked, “What’s going on? Why aren’t you in a dress? You should be Jongin’s date.”

“No,” Soojung beamed, handing you a menu as Jongin sat down opposite to you. “It was you all along. He was texting me the things you liked so he could give you that.”

Jongin handed over the box he was holding. “Look inside.”

There, a number of your favorite things was placed. Packets of gummy bears. White roses. A cute pink teddy bear that had a heart tattooed on it. Underneath all that was a box set aside at the corner.

“Jongin texted me everything while you two spent your time together. Contrary to what everyone says, we’re just best friends.” Soojung added, eyes crinkling as she grinned, “Jongin likes you. Very much.”

“Oh my god, is this really happening?” You lightly slapped yourself a few times eliciting a chuckle from Jongin. “Y-You like me?”

“If spending the entire Valentines Day with you is still questionable then yes, I like you.”

You propped an elbow on the table, pouting. Droplets of tears strolled down your cheeks. “Why’d you have to lie like that? I was in pain the entire day. I thought you liked Soojung and you were just using me.”

Jongin hugged you tightly. He wiped away the tears that fell. “Shh, I would never use you. I only have my eyes for you. Only you. I’m sorry. I never knew you were hurting inside. If I had known, then I wouldn’t have done that.”

“Fine. I forgive you,” you said, composing yourself together.

Standing up, Jongin reached out his hand for you to take. “Now that that’s done and you hate being serenaded, will you accompany your prince to the dance floor and dance with him, milady?”

You intertwined your fingers with his before kissing him lightly on the cheek. “As you wish, my prince.”

I spent years pursuing the man I thought was the love of my life. He was the closest thing to perfection I had ever known, beside myself, so I was certain we were meant for each other. Thankfully, I learned I was wrong before it was too late. I found true happiness with someone who was the opposite of what I was looking for. He’s not the definition of perfection, but he’s perfect you me.

dating J-Hope (BTS) would include:

  • this snickerdoodle deserves a novel written about him when it comes to your relationship because he’s the closest thing to perfection on the earth don’t argue with me
  • you are literally the thing he worships more than anything else in the world and he will gawk at you like you’re not human and it’s uncomfortable when he does this in public, the members tease you
  • the two of you are children in adult bodies, seriously when news came out about a new star wars movie you both screamed and held each other while crying hysterically
  • he loves taking you places and hates being contained in small spaces, and one of his favorite escapades was the time you guys went to the beach at sunset and turned out there was a party going on that night
  • it was awesome, there were fireworks and sparklers, hobi managed not to burn himself, much happiness and kisses
  • will frequently discuss the zombie apocalypse with you and if there are enough food supplies and ammo stocked up and you’re like no hoseok we only have the boomerang you got on vacation
  • you are petrified at all hours of the day that he will break something or himself when he starts spazzing out, you basically run around behind him with your arms out ready to catch him but he’s too damn fast
  • there was a time you tried surprising him with some lingerie but he was so afraid of ripping it and it looked really expensive so you had to strip yourself out of it and hang it up before he would go for sexy time
  • so now you just go to bed wearing absolutely nothing and that’s his cue to know what mood you’re in, if you are wearing those ugly cotton pajamas he knows to keep his hands to himself because you’re just not feeling it tonight and that’s fine
  • sometimes you watch him dance and think wow he can’t be real, and when he doesn’t have deadlines or anything invites you to dance with him and he does this weird version of the tango that gives you whiplash but it’s fun and firms up your glutes

  • there is a rap that he wrote for you and when you are angry with him or having a bad day, he will perform it just for you and it will never be published because it was his gift for you it’s awesome be jealous
  • sex is fun and excitement, there have been times the two of you actually fell off the bed, it wasn’t cute or funny it definitely hurt and you don’t speak of it but hobi thinks it’s hilarious and tells the members frequently
  • when you’re having cramps he will be so distraught and will rub your back and wrap blankets around you because he doesn’t understand how you can deal with your own body trying to kill you so calmly
  • he finally gets a break and the first thing out of his mouth is he wants to take you to the zoo, there are animals there and hoseok is excited
  • the two of you play video games in your underwear and aren’t the least bit distracted because it’s mortal kombat and you are kicking his ass but he thinks you’re so cool that it doesn’t even bother him
  • there will be times he will say “when we get married” and you blush and fight a smile because he’s being so honest and he truly thinks that any minute now the two of you are just gonna call it a day and elope to the tropics or something
  • when you buy him things or surprise him he will cry because it overwhelms him how much you both love and like each other, you’re planning on getting him a puppy one day and he will probably faint jimin promised to have a camera ready to film the moment
  • being his partner is like something out of a dream because you’re both kids that are in a relationship that feels like an unbreakable friendship but you also have really fun sex and you talk about car payments so all around you’ve both got this being adults thing totally under control

Hey guys! So this is my first writing, so feedback is really appreciated :) it’s based on I Don’t Even Know Your Name, hope you enjoy!

Eyes.

All I saw was one pair of deep brown eyes.

My heart beat fast as I got lost in those round dark orbs. Her eyes were glued to mine, just as mine were glued to hers. I could feel the sweat collecting as a gripped the neck of my acoustic guitar. Luckily the words of Life of the Party were engrained in my memory, because lyrics were the last thing on my mind. The words spilled out of my mouth out of habit as my gazed was locked on one thing… one girl.

Her hair fell in cascades down to her bare shoulders. Her soft pink dress brought out the rosiness of her cheeks. I could tell she was doing her best to hold her petit frame up on her tip-toes to see over the crowd. Her pink lips curled at the ends into a subtle and irresistible smile.

As the final words of the song found their way out of me, the wild movement and cheering of the crowd took my attention for a mere second. When I turned to dive back into those chocolatey spheres, they weren’t there. I felt my heart sunk deeper and deeper into my stomach as a realized she was gone.


The rest of the show was a blur. I can’t picture the rest of the crowd, or even the venue. As I sat on the bus, southbound from the Twin Cities, I could feel an ache in my heart. I felt her eyes locked on mine, and pictured her face. She was the closest thing I’d ever seen to perfection.


The rest of the tour dragged on. Time seemed to stand still as one thought, one person filled my mind. We played our last show in Toronto, and I finally exited to bus for good as I stood in my Pickering driveway.

I spent day after day with a pen in my hand and a guitar in my lap. I wrote and sang and for the first time, the words had meaning. There was no imaginary girl, no figment of my own creation, for whom these words were meant. She was real… she was out there… and I was going to find her.


A new album meant a new tour. The plans were set and dates announced, catering to my one request: a stop in Minneapolis.

August 6. I took another sip of coffee as I saw the bright red lights of the arena sign. My eyes had not seen sleep since we crossed the crooked border from Wisconsin to Minnesota.

“Here we are,” Andrew said with a sigh. “Happy yet, Shawn?”

He didn’t know. He didn’t know what this show meant to me. He didn’t know the pain that shot through my chest when I thought of the last time I was here. He didn’t know the meaning behind the worst I would belt on the stage that night. He didn’t know.

“Not yet,” was all I said.


As I stood on the side, ready to take the stage, I closed my eyes. I pictured exactly where I saw her. I pictured every detail of the girl who consumed my thoughts for over a year. I opened them and took the stage.


With each song I sang, my eyes scanned the crown. I looked for her familiar smirk, and those deep, dark eyes. But as each song ended, I was left with disappointment as she was no where to be seen.

Anxiety filled me as a realized I had one song left. I was disappointed that I hadn’t seen her face, and disappointed that she wouldn’t here the song I wrote for her.

“Ooo, you dressed up so nice, but all I could see was your eyes…

Another scan. No luck.

"And you’ll never know what you did to me, and now you’re gone…”

My heart sank as I sang the final line.

“I don’t even know your name…”

I sat alone in my dressing room with my head in my hands. She wasn’t there. She was gone. Lost forever, only to live in my memory.

Andrew knocked on my door, telling me it was time to head out. I rubbed my eyes on final time, hoping to get the sight of her out of my head. No luck. I grabbed my backpack and trudged my way to the back door towards the bus.

I dreaded stepping on the iron beast. It was filled with the words I had written for her, that I sang with her face on my mind and hope in my heart of seeing her again. That hope was gone. We had come back, but she did not return. She was gone.

I watched my boots hit the ground as I trudged towards the bus. Running my hand through my hair, I took one final look at the venue, and laid my hope of seeing her to rest right there in the parking lot.

I looked back down and took painstaking steps towards the bus. Just as I reached the door, I heard a small voice from behind stopped me in my tracks.

“Umm excuse me,” it said. It was so soft I almost didn’t believe it was real. I kept my eyes on the stairs of the bus, until I heard it one more time.

“Shawn?” it said. With the use of my name, I slowly turned around, only to be met with the deep brown eyes that had consumed my thoughts for what felt like centuries.

“Y/n,” those beautiful lips said. “It’s y/n.”
