SPECIAL EDITION PENTACOMICS: HOW THE HECK I MET PTX
IF YOU HATE LONG POSTS, SCROLL DOWN IMMEDIATELY, BECAUSE THIS IS A MOTHERDUCKING NOVEL.
HI EVERYONE, I KNOW I HAVEN’T BEEN ON MUCH HERE (MOSTLY BECAUSE I HANG AROUND ON TWITTER) BUT LAST JUNE 6 WAS WILD AS FRICK.
But first, a little backstory.
A bunch of asian pentaholics were absolutely ansty about On My Way Home tour dates for Asia (one of them me). So I took to Twitter…
It was all in good fun, a harmless joke. I just laughed it off, until…
The memory of my tweet to Esther just flooded back to me. I tweeted my sentiments about it.
Now, FAST FORWARD TO THE ACTUAL CONCERT DAY. Since she follows me on Twitter, I messaged Esther about it (non-verbatim).
oooooooooh my goooooooood
But I really did want to give ‘em something on their first concert in Manila. So I went on ahead with the silly thing.
I got to the venue with my brother (around 5PM) & had to meet up with Casey
OoOo’ (probablysomehow on tumblr/twitter) and Shawn (OHSHITSHAWN on twitter). squad goals amirite
Aaanyway, being the nervous wreck that I am, I asked them if they could tag along with me to see Esther. And thus begins the chase. (nv)
All I remember was a lot of running. And panicking.
WE’VE BEEN SAVED HALLELUJAH. We followed the nice lady to the actual south entrance…
We flocked into this leveled parking.
There were some people walking around but I’m just gonna put emphasis on these two.
We all marched to the door to follow the nice lady but then blocked by the guard. Nice lady took to the counter (nv)…
Nice lady leaves us, goes in the building, comes back with passes.
why won’t this lady let us pass pls lady-at-the-table
The nice lady defended that we were requested by the PTX Team themselves, but lady-at-the-table just wouldn’t budge. Nice lady also said that their tour manager is gonna pick us up anyway.
And then, like a flash of lightning, accompanied by the harmonious singing of a thousand angels, bursting through the door was…
oooooOOH MY GOOOOOOD
first of all let me tell you that i was just awestruck by esther because WOW she is absolutely beautiful in person i don’t understanD (a certain shih tzu would also agree with me on this one)
She greeted us by the doOR. She spoke to the lady-at-the-tabLE. She led us iNSIDE. And everyone was probably going nuts now.
Oh hey yeah, remember that weird bag of stuff? I was about to hand it to her & then leave, but apparently she had other plans…
*PAINED ALPACA NOISES*
I had forgotten what to do, what to think, or even what to say. Everything happened way too quickly. The next panel was the last thing I saw before going mindblank.
are they real
they look like moving mannequins
why am i so small
my thoughts in one tweet:
It took me a few minutes to register what was happening.
THEY ARE THE NICEST PEOPLE I THINK I MIGHT CRY JUST TYPING THIS SCOTT IS SO SOFT AND TALL KEVIN IS SO WARM MITCH HUGGED ME SO TIGHT KIRSTIE IS AN ABSOLUTE ANGEL AVI CAUSED ME EMOTIONAL PAIN I OWE ESTHER MY L I F E
Everything happened too quickly.
my entire life flashed before my tiny eyes
i don’t even remember half of what i saiD to theM
I proBabLY SaiD SOmething stuPid bUt i don’T REMemBER
(((more or less all four of us might be peeing our pants)))
((maybe it’s just me))
I gave them that weird bag of things, hugs went around again, & then Esther led us into the concert grounds, hugged & thanked her to no end like shaky little puppies.
Too quick. Everything went by too quick. All four of us were dead quiet walking to our seats. Then our silence was broken by just one phrase:
And oh yeah, the concert was amazing.
What a wild ride. This entire post is a wild ride. If you made it to the bottom of this post, congratulations.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to cry all over again, thank you for your time.
