the garden of last days

  • a band director: I'm gonna tell you guys about the third time I got paddled by my band director. I decided it was a good idea to put a garden snake inside my friends tuba on the last day of school. It was a bad idea. Actually, it was a great idea, but I messed up. The snake was too small and my friend didn't notice. So we put our instruments away for the summer and the next year, our band class started. My friend set up his tuba, took a deep breath... and projectile vomited over the entire class.
  • a flute: ....the third time?

I just left @soobaki at the airport.

These last few days were so fantastic! This was the first time I got to meet a long distance friend so I was nervous because anxiety and all. What if I wasn’t a proper host, what if she realized what a loser I am in real life? But it went amazing! She’s so great guys, and she was really patient with me. 

After the initial nerves, I loved showing her around. It was so interesting to see my country and my city through her eyes too. It’s given me a whole new perspective. She taught me the wonders of banana pancakes in return, so we’re pretty even.

Also bilingual friendships are great because of all the moments of “Mmmm…what’s the word…wait let me google that really fast.” And cultural differences are fun. 

We stayed up till 5AM yesterday and had to get up early today because of her flight but it was worth! Best time I’ve ever had watching Yuri on Ice with someone, 10/10 would do it all over again! Will probably eventually pass out later today but still, worth it.

@soobaki You’re welcome back any time ♥

A World of Beasts: Chapter 16

Rating: Teen and up

Fandoms: Gravity Falls/Over the Garden Wall

Genres: Gen, Adventure, Family/Friendship

Story Summary:

“There was no camp for them to break, and they did no more to argue about compass directions; the birds were still silent in the trees as the group stood up and began walking away without a sound, their first morning together outlined by the sort of shared, unspoken fear that is the basis for most relationships.

“Maybe this alliance wasn’t going to be entirely artificial after all.”

-

The world has changed all of a sudden, and no one fully knows why. The moon has been sitting half-full in the sky for three nights in a row now; people who once were seem no longer to be; and the shadows around every corner are coming to life. From across time and space, six souls journey through an eternal autumn wood in pursuit of one goal: To undo the apocalypse which brought them together. These are kids who have stared down evil before, but that sort of encounter leaves scars – and in such a strange place as this, old wounds are prone to reopen at the worst of times…

Alternate summary: “Beloved children’s cartoon characters team up, suffer nobly, kick evil’s ass.”

Chapter 16: A Recurring Nightmare

Sometime near the thousandth hour of that god-awful night, spent trapped at the bottom of a well of darkness where the moon could not penetrate, but only touch blue on the canopy that swayed silently above to impress that light must still exist in the world, theoretically, but in a manner coldly remote from their living experience – sometime in that sleepless void, Dipper was startled from an open-eyed doze by the sound of sobbing.  It was short and muffled and sourceless.  His eyes focused immediately on the vast flat nothing between the trees around and he perked his ears to identify its origin, but it didn’t come again.  Are you okay? he asked in his mind, but his jaw muscles did not comply.  His mouth was sucked dry of moisture and his tongue felt like it hadn’t been used in years, and perhaps shouldn’t ever be again. He couldn’t trust the things that came off of it anymore.

Think about it, Doctor. One last day with your beloved. Which day would you choose?

Christmas. Christmas Day

Last Show and Proposals

Can you do an imagine where Justin asks his girlfriend to marry him at one of his shows on stage?! Just thought it’d be super cute lol!

——————————————————————Justin’s P.O.V

Today is the last day of the Purpose Tour and were ending it all in Madison Square Garden. It’s not only special because it’s the last day, but I’m also proposing to my long term girlfriend (Y/N). 

She’s been through my up’s and downs with me. She’s the one I want to spend the rest of my life, have children, and grow old with. Everyone, the crew, knows I’ll be proposing to her. When I’m singing purpose, scooter is going to bring her on stage blindfolded and everything will happen infront of millions of people. 

I’m just hoping (Y/N) is willing to get married at a age like this, I really love her and her saying no will break my heart into millions of pieces. Enough of me, let’s see what my wonderful and beautiful girlfriend (Y/N) is doing.

(Y/N)’s P.O.V

I’m so excited for today!!! Justin is finishing his first leg of the Purpose Tour and couldn’t be any more proud of him. Right now, I am getting ready for the day.

Anyways, I wonder if he’s doing anything special for this show. I do know that Jaden Smith came to sing Never Say Never, but that’s about it. Eh we’ll find out when the show starts.

*skip till show starts*

I was backstage watching him do his usual thing, which was fantastic by the way. When purpose came on, scooter came towards and handed me a blindfold. 

He said “You might want to put this on now”, I gave him a very confused face and said “Why…”. Without answering scooter took the blindfold and did it for me instead. He took me arm and carefully walked me somewhere, being the klutz I am, I tripped over my own feet a few times. 

Than after being led up some stairs, scooter whispered into my hear “stay here klutz” and laughed.

Justin’s P.O.V

When I turned around and saw (Y/N) standing there having no clue, I immediately started getting nervous. I lifted my arm up a bit so the crew knew to play the playback, but also lower it so everyone in the arena can hear me. 

I went over to (Y/N) and took off her blindfold, her face when she noticed she was on stage was magical. Anyways, I got down on one knee and started saying my speech. 

It kinda went like this, “(Y/N) when I first laid my eyes on you back when I was 18, I couldn’t help myself and asked you out on a date. I know strange because we both had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. That date, I knew we were going to last forever. Today is very special because it’s not only the last day, but possibly a new beginning. (Y/N) (Y/L/N), will you marry me?”

 Y/N)’s P.O.V

Those words, those 4 words, made me feel numb and the emotions were coming at me all at once. I felt a wet substance slide down my cheek and knew it was tears. I started to cry more and shake my head yes. 

Justin got up and put the ring on my finger, while pulling me into a kiss and hug after. He than whispered in my ear “I love you with all my heart and you give me purpose baby”.

Last night I slept on the floor of the sea
in an unsounded part of the ocean
in the morning it was a long way up
through the dark streets of a silent country
with no language in its empty houses
until I had almost reached the surface
of a morning that I had never seen
then a breeze came to it and I began
to remember the voices of young leaves …

Ok so there a dog in my neighbourhood who’s alone in the garden all day, and sometimes when I walk my dog I pass right by him and it’s awesome because he’s very nice with other dogs, but also 

whenever he sees someone walking by the fence, he’ll bring them his ball,  slide it under the fence

and wait for them to throw it

and what’s also really great about that is the fact that every passer-by will do it??? The first time I heard about that was from my brother, who plays with him every time he walks by this garden, and in the last two days I met about 5 people who were playing with him whenever they passed by the fence, it’s really cute.
