How To Avoid Drinking Your Paint Water And Other Art Tips

  •  See the coke up there?  it’s in totally the wrong place.   KEEP YOUR BEVERAGE AT 4 O’CLOCK.  or 5, if you’re a leftie.  Keep your paint water on your table in front of you, and your beverage off to the side so that you have to physically turn around to get at it.  You will teach your brain that Drink Is Over There, Not On The Desk; your coffee will last longer that way, AND YOU WILL AVOID SPILLING IT ALL OVER YOUR WORK.
  • if you DO spill your drink, cover the page and call it “Organically Dyed Paper”  it ain’t coming out, run with it.
  • Instead of 7-hour continuous playlist, listen to albums so you’re stopping every 40 minutes or so to change the music THEN STRETCH YOU FOOLS.
  • Alternate caffeinated beverages with non-caffeinated.  your hands WILL start to shake if you keep mainlining coffee like that.
  • get this freaking pencil sharpener.  yes, that’s a lot for a sharpener, but this SOB will work forever, won’t eat pencils, and gets you the finest points possible.  this has been stress-tested by scientific illustrators and I promise we are the pissisest possible people when it comes to pencil points.  Mine it literally 6 years old now.  it’s great. (Yeah, yeah, it’s missing from the pic.  Have a backup in case of forgetfulness.)
  • DO NOT ATTEMPT TO ART IN POOR LIGHT.  this means both too little AND too much.  You eyes, brain and spine will all thank you.  This mean making sure you’ve got direct, full-spectrum light indoors (it’ll make laptops and winter easier too, I promise) and wearing sunglasses outdoors.
  • FUCK PRISMACOLOR PENCILS.  The pigment’s good but the binder is brittle and breaks, and the wood is frequently warped.  literally 1 in 5 of the last prismacolor pencils I’ve had were totally unusable.  Faber-Castel is comparable in price/sometimes cheaper and had very high quality.
  • like, not shitting on cheap art supplies, because god knows I use them all the time, but pirsmacolors are EXPENSIVE and having the lead snap for the 7369205790235969th time will give you a goddamn stroke.
  • Remember to Eat maybe????
  • about every 2-3 hours, get up, leave the room, and do something else for at least 20 minutes.  Do the dishes maybe.  Gives your eyes and shoulders a break, lets your brain re-set and you’ll be able to see things that Need Fixing when you get back.
  • FOR FUCKS SAKE, USE REFERENCES.  All the greats did, you’ll stress less, and things will look so much better.  Just google image the sucker.
  • srsly eat something.  even some cheetos.  pls.
  • ok kids it’s 3AM i’ll think of more in the morning.  take care of yourselves.
Craigslist jerk gets what's coming to him.

So here’s the story of this one individual who really got to me a few years ago.

I see an item posted online and decide to make an offer, and it goes like below. And any text below written in between parentheses is just extra story info, not actual exchanged info.

Me: Hi, is your item still available?

Seller: Yeah I still have it.

(BTW, I think the item was posted for like $150)

Me: OK, would you take $140 for it? (Which is only $10 off and I certainly wasn’t going to meet up with a less than agreed upon amount)

Seller: Sure, can you meet me at Town Center right now? (Which is halfway across town 50 minutes away)

Me: OK, I’m on my way. Thank you!

Seller: Sure, I’ll see you soon.

Me: OK I’m here, are you close?

(So I get there and I’m waiting for over 40 minutes, and I still haven’t received a text back from this guy)

(A few minutes later I receive the following text)

Seller: Hey, I hope you wasted your gas and time. That’s what you get for lowballing me.

End.

I haven’t had the time to do personal works for a few weeks and it’s so exhausting. It totally drains my creativity. So last night I decided to stop for a moment, get back in my comfort zone and just draw whatever I feel like drawing.

Take this as a friendly reminder - every now and then, no matter how much work and how little time you have, step back for a moment. Take even 15 minutes to just draw whatever you want. These 15 minutes won’t make you miss your deadlines for the week, but will certainly help you recharge and get creative and motivated again. <3 

So, well, if I’m not mistaken this season:

  • first man to land a 4lo
  • twice over 100 in the SP
  • three times over 200 in the LP
  • three times over 300 total score
  • 4th GPF title
  • first man to win GPF 4 times in a row
  • Second world title
  • 11th world record of his career
  • kept the skate Canada and 4CC curse alive by getting silver
  • YOLOed twice with two emergency quad combos, one of them being 4tlo3s, and did a YOLO 3A out of an ina bauer in the last minute of his LP
  • became the first man to land 3 quads in the second half of the program
  • first Japanese man with two world titles

Is there anything I’m missing here?

I probably won’t survive your career Yuzuru, but thank you for another amazing season!

so i made this post because even the laziest people in existence still have to study ha ha these are just some things i’ve been doing for my revision!

1. you don’t need to rewrite notes to memorise them

i know tons of people say that rewriting notes is a form of memory retention but honestly!!! i don’t have the energy/patience for that ha! for me, the best method to memorise things (especially content-heavy chapters/subjects) would be to record yourself talking. i don’t think this is especially catered to auditory learners, because i know for a fact that i’m not an auditory learner but this still works especially well for me so!!

 i usually open up the voice recorder app and talk as if i’m teaching someone! i’d recommend you use a guidebook as reference and not the actual textbooks. guidebooks are more vague, so when you’re speaking about a particular point, you can sort of expand on the point given in the guidebook from your knowledge of the subject! this really helps for revision because you’re basically forced to remember things. you don’t necessarily need to replay your recordings. to me, the “recording” bit of this method is psychological, it makes me feel like i’m actually memorising and not just talking to myself haha.

this recording method is honestly one of the most helpful things i’ve ever started doing and i can do a more in-depth post on it if anyone asks haha

2. use different highlighters for different sections

i know literally everyone has been told this tip in their lifetime but honestly!!! it’s EXTREMELY helpful, especially if you want to do timelines for history! use different colours for things like dates, people, treaties, etc! 
okay but one thing about this tip that’s sort of different from others is that when you highlight dates, highlight the entire event and not just the date! so for example, instead of highlighting “28 June 1919″, highlight “The Treaty of Versailles was signed on 28 June 1919.” that way, you know the WHOLE event and the date and you’ll be more likely to remember both! 

i learnt this the hard way - i used to highlight dates by themselves (maybe i was just totally dumb) and i could NEVER remember what happened on the dates lmao 

3. the internet is there for you

it’s a bad habit of mine, but being a very last-minute person, i ALWAYS have doubts even the night before exams. since it’s too late to actually contact anyone, i usually have to rely on the internet. the internet has a myriad of wonderful wonderful resources that are so incredibly useful! 

some youtube channels that have helped me are khanacademy (literally anything), mathbff (math), keith hughes (history), j brierly (literature) 

i also recommend watching documentaries (for history/social studies) because even though it’s a more in-depth version of what you have to learn, it’ll help you understand everything better + make your essay stand out :) 

4. find a suitable study space

a good study space is probably the first thing you should ensure if you want to get anything done at all. i usually never study at home, simply because i’m always distracted by trivial things such as “i’m hungry, i’m gonna get food” or “i’m so tired i’m going to sleep for five minutes”. 

when i started studying outside (usually at starbucks/the library), my productivity level increased so much it blew my mind a little. even though it’s a bit troublesome because you may not be completely sure what materials to bring, you’ll still get a lot done trust me on this lmao

5. always, always plan what you want to do

i find it really taxing to plan out my entire day down to the hour, so i usually just set a certain number of things i want to complete for that day, and just let things naturally flow from there.

for example, i write the things i want to do on my calendar (finish a set of math papers, read a chapter of lit, etc.) and then i just get everything done on that day w/o planning the exact time i’m going to do it! it makes things less stressful in my opinion :)

i’ve tried planning things by hour but it usually never works out so i just stopped doing it and honestly it’s not necessary! what’s important about planning is just knowing what you need to do and then getting it done. 

6. handwrite your notes whenever you can

writing your notes by hand triggers your memory more effectively than typing them out. even though i’m tempted to type out notes since i’m the laziest person in existence, i still try (most of the time) to write notes because at the end of the day, you’ll be more proud of your handwritten notes than your boring typed out ones :)

7. study with people who usually do well

this is a rather…shady….method of learning but honestly!!! when you know how the top students function, you can learn from them as well! 

i’ve discovered that top students usually perform so well because they review their content regularly, unlike people like me who wait three days before the exam to start cramming everything into my brain.

keep some pictures of your notes or some flashcards with you, so that when you have pockets of time (eg. waiting for a friend, waiting for the bus, etc), you can whip them out and start reviewing :) 

these people also act as tutors, so you can clarify your doubts with them and it’ll be less awkward as compared to asking an actual teacher. i know i prefer asking classmates than teachers hahaha.


OKAY i hope this helped :-) please also reblog/like this if you’re a studyblr, i’m new to the community and i wanna follow more people!! 

Advice/FYI’s to High School Seniors

My main pieces of advice for all those students starting their senior year of high school this fall. Of course, these won’t all apply to everyone, but take what you want from it. Here’s some advice from someone who just graduated. 

  1. By the time you get to senior year you either have 3 close friends. or you’ll be friends with everyone. Either way, cherish them all. 
  2. Do not slack off. If you do, at least wait until the second semester. 
  3. Take easy classes. Unless you don’t mind lower grades in hard classes due to senioritis then I suggest you keep your senior schedule pretty simple. 
  4. Take off periods. You will LOVE them. You will be surprised with how much longer your days feel.
  5. Definitely start driving to school, or carpooling with someone who does. 
  6. Go to the football games. Even if your team sucks. They’re just good experiences.
  7. Actually, go to as many school events as possible. Senior year was my first time going to volleyball games, or the dance shows. This is your last chance to experience them.
  8. You do not need to go off campus for lunch everyday. You do not want to earn your freshmen fifteen as a senior.
  9. Your senior year group of friends will be the group of friends that you wish you’d had all throughout high school.
  10. You will meet new people, and become friends and wish that you met them sooner. Because some of them will be juniors and you probably won’t see them for a very long time. 
  11. Start applying to colleges as early as you can. Preferably once you start senior year, or the summer before. 
  12. If you haven’t already taken your SAT/ACT you definitely need to get started on that your first semester. 
  13. Go to prom if you can. It won’t be the BEST night of your life, but it’s a good one. 
  14. Start thinking about what you want to major in. This is definitely subject to change, but you’re going to want to know a couple options once you start applying to colleges.
  15. Once you do accept your offer for a college, and it becomes definite, high school becomes so much harder to get through because you just want to leave. 
  16. You’re going to be waiting for graduation THE WHOLE YEAR. 
  17. If you’re in a relationship and are going your separate ways after graduating now would be a good time to either end it, or figure out ways to be long distance.
  18. Long distance very rarely works. 
  19. At prom, it is a very good idea to invest in some comfortable shoes.
  20. Take lots of pictures.
  21. Go on college visits to as many colleges as you can.
  22. Save your absences for the last weeks of school because that’s when you are REALLY not going to want to go. 
  23. Be one good terms with some of your teachers, because you’re going to want letters of recommendation. 
  24. If you want to take pictures with your friends after graduation, be ready to pick a place to meet up beforehand because it will be very hard to find them afterwards.
  25. Do your homework. Please. 
  26. Stop talking to the people that you realize you’re only nice to because you have classes with them. 
  27. Now is just not a good time to develop a crush. 
  28. AP tests are suddenly very hard to study for considering that you’ve been taking it easy all year.
  29. Your SAT score does not define you and getting a bad one is not the end of the world.
  30. However, do as well as you can because colleges often give assured scholarships to students who meet certain SAT/ACT scores. 
  31. Your GPA is either going to drop, or raise A LOT. 
  32. GPA doesn’t really matter at this point though. Junior year grades matter the most. 
  33. Spend a lot of time with your family. You’ll be off to college before you know it.
  34. High school parties are honestly overhyped. 
  35. Now would be a good time to acquire a taste for coffee. 
  36. If you oversleep, I honestly recommend just staying home that day unless you have a test. 
  37. T-shirts will become your clothing of choice. 
  38. If you love makeup, like me, by the last 2 months of school you just won’t have the energy to wake up 20 minutes earlier to apply it. So learn to be okay with how you look without makeup. 
  39. Please eat breakfast. 
  40. No one cares if you eat in the cafeteria. 
  41. The freshman look SO tiny and it makes you wonder if you looked that small 3 years ago. 
  42. Go to all the pep rallies. 
  43. Have fun during spirit week. Some colleges don’t have them, so take advantage of it now.
  44. It is totally okay to not have a date for prom.
  45. One of the happiest moments you will have all year is being able to walk across the stage. Also, one of the shortest.
  46. Despite what everyone says, there is a very good chance that you WON’T cry at graduation. 
  47. The senior year teachers are always the best.
  48. Be nice to the freshman.
  49. Be nice to any underclassmen actually.
  50. But also, take pride in being a senior. This is your last year. Own it.

anonymous asked:

i know you're super busy all the time but just in case - any tips for law firm networking events? or, alternatively, as i have both this week, on how to sell yourself at an interview? you seem to be a person who knows how to play the game. anyway! loads of luck with all your things!

Networking events are a) the worst, b) incredibly valuable in expanding your circle of personal and professional contacts. Most of my tips are spawned from me viciously hating them, and simultaneously knowing they are Important For Career Development.

  • First of all, if you’re waiting for the magic rom-com moment when you totally connect with someone and they hire you on the spot—it’s not going to happen. (I definitely had to kill that fantasy, several times.)
    • Instead, it’s best to think of networking as a meet cute—the goal is to make an impression, and for that person to know who you are when you follow up with them afterwards.
    • ….and you are going to follow up afterwards.
  • Start with people you know. There are a lot of networking events I’ve attended where there are classmates/professors in attendance. It is perfectly good manners to approach someone you know, greet them, and then introduce yourself to whoever they’re talking to.
    • I mean, obviously you can’t be an asshole about it, you don’t want to interrupt them, but I’ve definitely pulled this move with great success. 
    • “Hey, [FRIEND] I saw you and I just had to say hello. Oh, I’m sorry, I don’t mean to be rude, I’m [NAME], I’m in [FRIEND]’s Corporate Law class.”
    • It also works really nicely if you can slip a compliment in for friend, both because it’s classy and they feel obligated to reciprocate.
  • Go in with 2-3 general questions that require more than a brief answer. Some of my favorites are “What’s the most interesting or challenging project/issue you’ve worked on in the last 6 months?” “What brought you to [area of specialization]?”
    • These are good because they don’t require you knowing anything about the person, but can get them to open up about their work. I haven’t met a lawyer who doesn’t enjoy sharing their war stories.
  • Work the room. If you’re talking to a single person for more than 15 minutes, you’re probably spending too much time with them.
  • It is totally appropriate to ask for a business card! Ask for a business card! This helps for the next step which is…
  • Follow up within the next business week. As I said before, networking events are meet cutes. If you really want to develop this individual as a contact, you’re going to have to keep reaching out to them.
    • I’ve had the most success in finding and friending them on LinkedIn directly afterwards. (Literally, I go home and spend an hour finding everyone I talked to.) In my connection request, I thank them for the conversation and mention one specific thing they talked about.
    • Then, about a week later, I email them directly and ask to grab coffee/have an informational interview.
      • Attach your resume to the request, and send them a reminder email 24 hours before with your resume attached.
  • Keep up contact. These types of relationships aren’t a one-shot deal, you need to stay at the forefront of the minds. Like the articles they post on LinkedIn. Reach out and congratulate them on new jobs/awards.
    • Almost all attorneys publish pretty frequently through their firm website/blog. If they post something related to your interests, I suggest reaching out and saying so—a couple sentences wishing them well ought to do the trick.

If you’re reading through this and it sounds incredibly daunting, it is. But it is also one of those things that gets easier with practice. Be polite, relaxed, and professional, and chances are you’re already leagues ahead in the game.

well, that about wraps it up for Brotzly Week!

(unless you’re doing the bonus day, which i unfortunately can’t as i don’t have any wips close enough to being post-ready!)

let’s give a big hand to the @brotzlyweek mods for setting all this up, eh??? Nice one guys! I always love seeing content explosions and it was hella fun to contribute! 

and hats off to everyone who wrote, drew, edited etc, it’s been amazing seeing what everyone’s come up with! extra EXTRA hats off if you’ve been doing it alongside other work/life/school/big bang commitments, too! (and yes, i am including myself in that because dammit i’ve worked hard and i deserve a pat on the back fight me)

i wrote a ficlet for every day which were actually all part of the same universe (EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED, Y’ALL). The series in the order that it was posted is right here on Ao3, but if you wanna read the stories in CHRONOLOGICAL order (i.e. the order they actually take place within the universe) it’s something like:

1. You Have Arms. I Have Arms. What A Coinky-Dink (Day 1)

2. Of All The Worlds In All The Universes In All Reality, You Walk Into Mine (Day 6)

3. I May Wear My Heart On My Sleeve- But Joke’s On You, It’s Your Sleeve Now (Day 2)

4: Maybe This Won’t Last Very Long (But You Feel So Right, And I Could Be Wrong) (Day 7)

5: My Mind Is My Own Worst Enemy; It Keeps Trying To Convince Me That You Are (Day 5)

6: I Put The ‘Ugh’ In Laughter (Day 4)

7: You Are My Gravity- Every Day I Fall Harder (Day 3)

personally i think both reading orders have their merits, so take your pick- or do both, if you think any of these are worth a second read! XD huge HUGE thanks to everyone who’s read, reblogged, commented etc- you’re all fricken swell and you’ve made this one heck of a fun week! I’m glad we could all come together and celebrate this wonderful pairing together! ^_^

You had arrived at Tyler’s about thirty minutes ago; standing at his kitchen counter, you were putting bread into the toaster when Tyler snuck up behind you, encircling your waist in his strong arms. “Morning, baby.” he murmured, pressing a kiss to the side of your neck. “Did you go have a crazy night out after you left here last night?” he grinned into the crook of your neck.

“Yeah, Netflix and wine, I got totally crazy.” you smiled, turning in his arms to face him, lacing your arms around his neck.

“I don’t know how much longer I can be with someone who parties so hard.” he joked, pecking your lips. “I have to be responsible, for Charlie sake. You sound like a bad influence.”

“From what I’ve heard, you were pretty wild back in the day Seguin. You better leave me and my Netflix binging alone.”  you replied with a grin, Tyler’s chocolate eyes twinkling.

You both turned when you heard Charlie trudge into the kitchen, dragging his book bag behind him. He let go of the strap, crawling up into his chair at the breakfast table. Tyler pressed a kiss to your cheek before letting you go, heading to his bedroom to grab his bag.

“Mornin’.” Charlie mumbled, rubbing his eyes, his brown hair sticking up in all directions.

“Morning, Charlie.” you smiled, grabbing a slice of toast, setting it on a plate with some bacon. “Do you want an orange or a banana with your breakfast?” you asked, walking over to the table and setting the plate down in front of him.

“Orange.” he said with a yawn.

“Charlie.” Tyler corrected him as he walked back into the room, his bag slung over his shoulder.

“Please?” he added looking at you apologetically.

“Of course, bud.” you said, grabbing an orange off the counter to peel for him.

“I have practice this morning and a meeting with sponsors later this afternoon.” Tyler told you, as he slipped his shoes on. “I really appreciate you running him to and from school today. Love you.” he said, giving you a kiss goodbye.

“No problem.” you smiled. “Love you, too.”

He walked over to Charlie, running his hand over Charlie’s unruly hair, trying to tame it. “Bye little man. Be good for (Y/N). I love you.” Tyler told Charlie, bending down to give Charlie a kiss.

“Love you, daddy.”

Queadlunn- I’ve tried a couple new methods for my polycarbonate gem faceting. I cut another gem (the shape turned out a lot better this time too!) and this time I used iDye Poly to color it.

-WALL OF TEXT INCOMING-

The method of how I made the gem out of poly is pretty much the same as the last one (LINK), I had a cylindrical piece about 1x3” in size and I ground it into a (base) 3-sided pattern that worked pretty nicely. The disk sander we have currently has 80-grit on it, from there I moved to 220-grit, then 400-grit, then a felt polishing wheel (just sitting on my desk), then burnishing with cloth. This got me to image #4 which was looking really nice.

Since my last attempt to dye poly with standard fabric dye was a failure, I used some synthetic-compatible dye that Cata had bought me (iDye Poly, see image #5). I got the dye ready on the stove and dipped the gem in it for about 3 minutes total in 2 runs. I was really careful with the temperature this time (might have been around 85c or 90c or so) since the first test gem ended up with tiny thermal fractures on many facets. After the dye bath I was at image #1.

One drawback with the dyebath is that while it does seem to penetrate, it’s less than 0.2mm (with solid plastic this is understandable) and the dye process does take a bit of the luster from the earlier polishing off and it’s not something you can get back with polishing since you’ll just wear through the dyed plastic.

Since the gem wasn’t quite as shiny as I wanted now, I added a thin coat of Future to bring it back to a nice shine (image #1). Worked pretty well but I’ll need to airbrush the future on next time.

Overall, I think this is a great process, given that you have access to a bench disk sander and access to larger pieces of polycarbonate.

I’ve got one more of these planned, a larger one. I’m thinking of taking video of the faceting process but I’m still figuring that, and the material, out. Also thinking of trying a long-term soak dye (cold) to see if that gets the color farther in the plastic so I can re-polish without having to topcoat the gems.

anonymous asked:

What are your thoughts on teen wolf? especially writing wise? I have stopped watching regularly around 3b and I wasn't too convinced by what I've seen here on tumblr about the rest of the episodes, in particular 6x10...

i will always have a special place in my heart for the characters i love that the show gave me. i still blog about teen wolf, i write fic, and i enjoyed s1-3a. saying that, i don’t particular enjoy what the show became, or look back on the experience i had as a fan with much nostalgia (i think we were v much used and abused as a fandom online, for sure). i love my part of fandom, though.

short answer about the writing… it was terrible because

1) there was a complete lack of planning and follow through

2) we love this idea/actor/theme for 30 seconds but oops now we don’t

3) they completely misused their social media as a way to a) explain away/correct plot holes in their own writing and b) encourage viewers to watch a show they implied to be many things that it turned out to… not be any of

Life-Changing Coconut Bacon With Just 4 Ingredients

This mouthwatering bacon recipe is everything you want: salty, smoky, crispy, and totally vegan!

Makes 2 ½ cups

Ingredients:
3 tablespoons tamari
1 tablespoon liquid smoke
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon maple syrup
3 cups unsweetened large-flake coconut

Preparation:
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Whisk the tamari, liquid smoke, water, and maple syrup together in a large bowl. Stir in the coconut and mix well to ensure that the flakes are evenly coated.

Spread the coconut in an even layer on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake 10 minutes, and then stir. Bake another 8 minutes, keeping a very close eye on the coconut in the last few minutes. The coconut will go from almost done to completely burned very quickly. Remove from the oven when the coconut flakes on the outer edges of the pan are becoming a deep, dark brown, but not black.

Place the baking sheet on a cooling rack. The coconut will continue to crisp as it cools. Coconut bacon will keep 1 to 2 weeks in an airtight plastic container, but will become less crisp the longer you store it.


Big thanks to the folks behind Baconish, a brand-new, totally vegan bacon cookbook, for being kind enough to share this amazing recipe. Get your copy here.

You groan and yawn, stretching your hands above your head when a sudden familiar *ping* is heard, making your heart flutter. 

Your eyes dart toward your phone on the night stand, Oh how you hoped it’s him again, how your heart was ready burst with joy upon seeing that notification,

EN: “Down her side, down her side, down her side!”

???: “And they wonder, will I live or will I die?

They let me in…”

EN: “They let her in, they let her live!”

???: “And they hope I will survive.”

EN: “Stay alive, stay alive…”

???: “But I believe that…I should never be satisfied!”

EM: “Rewind….!”

There was some sort of backwards screaming sound as she spun anxiously in a circle.

???: “I remember that night,

I’ll never forget that night for the rest of my days.

I remember that suitor’s voice,

Pissed off because he’ll never win my praise.

I remember that dreamlike, dirt and fight,

Like a dream that you can’t quite place.

Philip: “But my starlight,

I’ll never forget the first time I saw your face.

I have never been the same.

Intelligent eyes in a hunger-pane frame!

And when you said ‘Bye’

I knew you won the game!

Set my heart aflame, every part aflame!”

The man playing Philip danced in toward her with a doe like expression.

???: “When you asked me what’s my name!”

Philip: “You strike me,

As a woman I could surely satisfy.”

???: “I’m sure I don’t know what you mean,

get over yourself.”

She turned her back to him.

Philip: “But you’re like me,

I’m never satisfied.”

???: “Isn’t that fine?”

Philip: “I could help you be satisfied…”

She turned back around hesitantly and held out her hand.

???: “My name is Titania Taylor.”

WHOA, WHOA, WHOA, THERE! BACK THE FUCK UP A SECOND!

Philip: “Call me Philip Hamilton.

Where’s your family from?”

Titania: “Unimportant, there’s a million things I haven’t done.

But just you wait! Just you wait!”

They began to dance around each other with choreography. Is that…me?

Philip: “So, so, so!

So this is what it feels like to match wits,

With someone at your level!

What the hell is the catch?

There’s a feeling of freedom, of seeing the light!

It’s Ol’Franklin with a key and a kite,

You feel that right?

Our conversation could’ve last two minutes,

Maybe 3 minutes!

Not everything we said in total agreement-

It’s a dream!

Maybe it’s a trance,

It could be her posture; it could be her stance!

I’m a bit of a flirt, but she could give me chance!

We asked about her family, did you see her answer?

Her hands started fidgeting,

She looked askance!

She’s now penniless but she never knew how to dance!

Gorgeous, God she don’t know it!

Strong girl, she knows that she owns it!”

Titania: “I wanna take him far away from this place,

Then I turn and see that boy’s face and he is-“

Philip: “Helpless!”

Titania: “And I know he is!”

Philip: “Helpless!”

Titania: “And his eyes are just!”

Philip: “Helpless!”

Titania: “And I realize,

Three fundamental truths at the exact same time!”

They came together and linked arms.

Titania: “Where are you taking me?”

Philip: “I plan to change your life.”

Titania: I regret letting you lead the way…”

EN: “Number one!”

Titania: “I’m a girl in a world,

In which everyone thinks I should marry rich!

My Father had no son,

So I was the one, who was supposed to strive for one!

But I’m boldest, and the silliest,

And no one should love me, that’s ridiculous!

But Philip Hamilton is the wittiest!

Ha!

That sure don’t mean I want him any less…”

Philip: “Do you see the starlight? It reminds me of you!”

Titania: “Starlight?”

Philip: “My Starlight…”

EN: “Number two!”

Titania: “They’re still after me,

Because I have no sister and my parents died.

I’d have to be naïve to not step aside.

Maybe that is why,

I take comfort in Eliza, I can’t decide!

Nice going, Titania!

I was right, I will never be satisfied…

Thank you for showing me this…”

Philip: “If it takes a million years for you to see,

It would still be worth it.”

Titania: “I’ll hold you to it.”

EN: “Number three!”

Titania: “He knows me more than I know my own mind!

I will never find anyone as trusting or as kind!

If I tell him that I love him,

I’d be setting him behind,

He’d be mine!

He would say it’s fine!

I’d think he’s lying!

But when I fanaticize at night,

It’s into Philip’s eyes.

As I romanticize,

What would happen if I recite…

My love profusely…

All I want is to be called his wife!”

Philip: “…You’ll always have my eyes in your life…”

Titania: “They’d say…

To the groom!”

EN: “To the groom, to the groom, to the groom!”

Titania: “To the bride!”

EN: “To the bride, to the bride, to the bride!”

Titania: “It could be real as…

As long as I stay alive!

To our union!”

EN: “They let her in, they let her live!”

Titania: “And the hope that we provide!”

EN: “Stay alive, stay alive!”

Titania: “May we always be satisfied!”

EN: “Satisfied, satisfied…”

Titania: “And I know…

I’d be happy as his bride…

And I know….

I will truly be satisfied,

Can I help him be satisfied?”

             It took you a moment to notice the tears streaming down your face. That was you, or at least that version of you. Someone who was unsure, scared and self-sacrificing. It was almost surreal, seeing someone pretend to be you, be your voice, speak your thoughts and show your own story. It felt like being the author of a book that was turned into a movie. Washington On Your Side started up with Burr’s voice and you wondered what else was different. And then it happened again, in We Know. It seemed normal but there was another person there, the woman playing Titania. She was off to the side, still prominent in the scene but almost like she was hiding from the other four men on the stage. From time to time you could hear her voice faintly under the others’.

Alex: “Mister Vice President

Mister Madison

Senator Burr

What is this?”

Jefferson: “We have the check stubs, from separate accounts.”

Madison: “Almost a thousand dollars, paid in different amounts.”

Burr: “To a Mister James Reynolds way back in

Seventeen ninety-one.”

Alex: “Is that what you have, are you done?”

Madison: “You are uniquely situated by virtue of your position.”

Jefferson: “Though ‘virtue’ is not a word I’d apply to this situation.”

Madison: “To seek financial gain, to stray from your sacred mission.”

Jefferson “And the evidence suggests you’ve engaged in speculation!”

Burr: “An immigrant embezzling our government funds!”

Madison/Jefferson: “I can almost see the headline; your career is done.”

Burr: “I hope you saved some money for your daughter and sons!”

Madison/Jefferson: “Ya best g'wan run back where ya come from!”

Alex: “Ha! you don’t even know what you’re asking me to confess.”

Madison/Jefferson: “Confess!”

(Titania: “Say no to this…”)

Alex: “You have nothing; I don’t have to tell you anything at all

Unless…”

Madison/Jefferson: “Unless…”

(Titania: “Lord, show him how to

Say no to this…”)

Alex: “If I can prove that I never broke the law

Do you promise not to tell another soul what you saw?”

Burr: “No one else was in the room where it happened…”

(Titania: “Please, you need to

Say no to this!”)

Alex: “Is that a yes?”

Burr/Mads/Jeff: “Um, yes…”

Alex handed Burr a piece of paper.

Burr: “Dear Sir, I hope this letter finds you in good health

And in a prosperous enough position to put wealth

In the pockets of people like me, down on their luck

You see, that was my wife who you decided to-“

Titania: “Wait!”

Titania ran across the stage, grabbing Alex by the arm and the letter, pulling him away from the others.

Jefferson: “She courted him?

Escorted him to bed.”

Madison: “And when she had him in her corner,

That’s when Reynold’s extorted him.”

Burr: “For a sorted fee?

He paid him quarterly?”

Jefferson: “He may have continued his affair with that maid,

We’ll tell them in the papers.

The public will be set ablaze!”

The focus shifted from the three and to Titania and Alex.

Alex: “If they can see I kept a record of every check in my checkered history,

Check it again against their list n’ see consistency!

I never spent a cent that wasn’t mine,

They sent the dogs after my scent, that’s not fine!

Titania: “Yes, you have reasons for shame,

But you have not committed treason and sullied your good name!

If they can see you have done nothing to provoke legal action.

Maybe our answers will be to their satisfaction?”

Jefferson: “My God…

Gentlemen, let’s go.”

Burr/Mads/Jeff: “But do we really know

What we know?”

Alex: “How do I know they won’t use this against me

The next time we go toe to toe?”

Titania: “Alexander, rumors only grow.

And we both know what we know…”

             Oh my god, I changed history! I really did change history! It definitely wasn’t a dream! I’m not crazy! Next up was Hurricane, that was relatively the same. The only change you noticed was at the end.

Alex: “I’ll write my way out

Overwhelm them with honesty!

This is the eye of the hurricane; this is the only

Way I can protect our legacies!”

EN: “Wait for it, wait for it, wait for it, wait!”

Alex: “Titania’s Pamphlet…”

Oh no, not this again!

EN: “Titania’s Pamphlet!”

Jeff/Mads/Angelica: “Have you read this?”

Burr/Jeff/Mads:” Alexander Hamilton had a torrid affair

And he wrote it down right there!”

Madison: “Highlights!”

Alex/Jefferson: “The charge against me

Is a connection with one,                      

James Reynolds!  (James: “James Reynolds!”)

For purposes of

Improper speculation                          

My real crime is an   (Burr: “My real crime is an)

Amorous connection with his wife    (Amorous connection with his wife”)

For a considerable time

With his knowing consent!”

Mads/Burr/Jeff: “Damn!”

Alex/Jeff/Mads: “I had frequent meetings with her

yet some have looked into my own house!”

Burr: “Into his own house!”

Madison: “Into his own house!”

Deep voice: “Damn!”

Alex/Jefferson: “Titania had no part in this, in fact I’ve considered myself as her father.”

Madison/Burr: “No…”

EN: “Booooo!”

Madison/Burr: “Have you read this?”

Jefferson: “Well, he’s never gon’ be President now!”

Madison/Burr: “Never gon’ be President now!

Jefferson: “Well, he’s never gon’ be President now!”

Madison/Burr: “Never gon’ be President now!”

Jefferson: “He’s never gon’ be President now!”

Madison/Burr: “Never gon’ be President now!”

Jefferson: “That’s one less thing to worry about!”

Jeff/Mads/Burr: “That’s one less thing to worry about!”

Angelica/Philip: “I came as soon as I heard.”

Jefferson: “What?!”      

Alex: “Angelica…”    (Philip: “Titania…”)

EN: “All that way from London?!

Damn!”

Alex: “Angelica, thank God   (Philip: “Titania, oh God

Someone who understands   (I don’t know if I understand

What I’m struggling here to do (Please, tell me it’s not true…”)

Angelica: “I’m not here for you…”

EN: “Ooooh!”

Angelica: “I know my sister (Titania: “You know me more)

Like I know my own mind! (Than I know my own mind!)

You will never find (I will never find)

Anyone as trusting or as kind! (Anyone as trusting or as kind!)

I love my sister more than (I love you Philip more than)

Anything in this life! (Anything in this life!)

I will choose her happiness (I would choose your happiness)

Over mine every time! (Over mine every time!)

Put what we had aside (Don’t put what we have aside!)

I’m standing at her side (I’ve always been at your side!)

You could never be satisfied! (The public will never be satisfied!)

God, I hope you’re satisfied (God, I hope their satisfied!)

Jeff/Mads/Burr: “Well, he’s never gon’ be President now!

Well, he’s never gon’ be President now!

Well, he’s never gon’ be President now!

That’s one less thing to worry about.”

Jeff/Mads/Alex:              (EN:

“Hey!                                  (“Well he’s never gon’ )  

At least he was                  (be President now!)

honest with our money!

Full company:

“That’s one less thing to worry about!

The Titania’s Pamphlet

Jeff/Mads/Burr: Have you read this?

You ever see somebody ruin their own life?”

 

Full company (Except Alex and Eliza): “His poor wife…”

You were extremely overwhelmed. A lot was happening at once and it all felt so knew to you. It was the most perplexing thing. It didn’t feel like it was you anymore. It was just another person in history, someone who made your decisions. They felt like two separate things. I guess that’s how history goes; we can never know the full extent of it… unless we lived it ourselves. The next song was Burn and you couldn’t help but remember the actual incident with injury. That poor woman didn’t deserve what she got. There were only some small differences in that song.

Eliza: “They published a letter

Her husband wrote to you.

You told the whole world that you brought this girl into our bed!

In clearing your name, you almost ruined my life!”

You weren’t that surprised by the changes. After all, Titania’s Pamphlet was a lot vaguer than the original. A thought came to mind. What about Blow Us All Away?

Philip: “OooooOoooh!

I do, I do, I do, I do!

Hey!

OooohOoooh!

I do, I do, I do, I do, I do!

Girl, you got me

Helpless!

Look into your eyes and

The sky is them!

I’m Helpless!

Down for the count and I’m

Drowning in ‘em!

Yo, I have never been the type to try and grab the spotlight!

Even at revel, they’ll still tell us on a hot night!

Laughing with my sister as she’s dazzlin’ the room

But you’ll walk in, make my heart go

BOOM!”

Titania: “Try and catch your eye from the side of the ballroom!

Everyone’s dancing and the band’s top volume!

Grind to the rhythm as we wine and dine!”

Philip: “Grab my sister

She whispers

‘You’ll get her this time!’

                                  (All men:                

.                                    (“Oooh)

My sister made her way across

the room to you                (Oooh)

And I got nervous,

thinking “What’s she gonna do?”          (Oooh)

She grabbed you by the arm,

I’m thinkin’ ‘That’s new!’                     (Oooh)

Then you look back at me

and suddenly I’m Helpless!               (Helpless!)

Oh, look at those eyes                 (Look into your eyes)

.                                                         (And the sky’s in them)

Oh!                                                    (I’m)

Yeah, I’m                                           (Helpless!)

Helpless, I know                             (Down for the count)

.                                                        (And I’m drownin’ in ‘em)                

.

.                                                          (I’m helpless!)

I’m so into you                                (Look into your eyes)

I am so into you                               (And the sky’s in them I’m helpless!)

 

I know I’m down for the count             (Down for the count)

And I’m drownin’ in ‘em.”                      (And I’m drownin’ in ‘em.”)

Titania: “Where are you taking me now?”

Philip: “Did you think I was done changing your life?”

Titania: “Then by all means, lead the way.”

Philip: “You can really see the sky out here…”

EN: “Just kiss her already!”

Titania: “Thank you…for being with me”

Philip: “I would spend a million years to prove myself, it would still be worth it.”

Titania: “You’re already worth it…”

Titania/all women: “One week later!”

Titania: “I’m writing a letter nightly

Now my life gets better every letter that you write me!

Laughing at his sister, cuz she knows I care for him!”

Female member of the EN: “I’m just saying if you really loved me, you would marry him!”

Titania: “Yes!”

Philip: “Two weeks later              (All men:

In the living room stressin’           (“Stressin’)

My father’s stone-faced

While I’m asking ‘what are my chances?’     ( Blessin’)

I’m dying inside, as

We wine

And dine

And I’m tryin’ not to cry

‘cause there’s nothing

that our minds can’t do               (Oooh)

My father makes his way across the room

To you

I panic for a second, thinking

“what’s he gonna do?”                          (Oooh)

But then he shakes your hand and says

“It’s true…”                            (Oooh)

And you turn back to me, smiling, and I’m

Helpless!                    (Helpless!)

.                                    (And the sky’s in)

Helpless! Helpless!      (Helpless!)              

Down for the count     (Down for the count)

And I’m drownin’ in em!”   (And I’m drownin’ in em!”)

Titania:

“Philip, I don’t have a dollar to my name

An acre of land, a group at my hand, a dollop of fame

All I have’s my honor, a tolerance for pain

A couple of callings coming and my top-notch brain

Insane, your family brings out a different side of me

Eliza confides in me, Alexander tried to take a bite of me

No stress, my love for you is never in doubt

We can get a place in Harlem and figure it out

I’ve been livin’ without a family for quite a while

My father tried, my mother died, I grew up with a fake smile

But I’ll never forget what my father taught me, that was real

And long as I’m alive, Philip, swear to God

You’ll never feel so…”

(Wedding march, but whistled)

En: “In New York, you can be a new man…

In New York, you can be a new man…

In New York, you can be a new man…”

Titania: “Helpless…”

Philip…Oh God… You couldn’t move, your mind was running a mile a minute. It was all hitting you at once. This was a simplified version of what you and Philip went through together. This was supposed to be a happy song, full of hope, full of love. But you knew, you knew what came next. The thing that kept you up at night. The whistling of the wedding march changed, you weren’t ready for this. You never could be.

Philip: “Meet the latest graduate of King’s College

I prob’ly shouldn’t brag, but, dag, I amaze and astonish

The scholars say I got the same virtuosity and brains as my pops

The ladies say my brain’s not where the resemblance stops

I’m only nineteen but my mind is older

Gotta be my own man, like my father, but bolder

I shoulder his legacy with pride, I used to hear him say

That someday I would-“

Full company: “Blow us all away!”

Philip: “Ladies, I’m lookin for a Mr. George Eacker

Made a speech last week, our Fourth of July speaker

He disparaged my father’s legacy in front of a crowd

I can’t have that, I’m making my father proud!”

Female EN member: I saw him just up Broadway a couple of blocks,

He was going to see a play.”

Philip: “Well I’ll go visit his box!”

2nd female EN member: “God you’re a fox!”

Philip: “And y’all look pretty good in ya’ frocks

But I got girl waiting for me back home and she rocks!” ( Both female EN members: “Aww, okay…”)

Full company: “Blow us all away!”

Philip: “George!” (Eacker: “Shh!”)

George!”

Eacker: “Shh! I’m tryin’a watch a show!”

Philip: “Ya shoulda watched your mouth before you talked about my father though!”

Eacker: “I didn’t say anything that wasn’t true

Your father’s a scoundrel, and so, it seems, are you.”

Full company: “Ooooooh!”

Philip: “It’s like that?”

Eacker: “Yeah, I don’t fool around, I’m not your little tool girlfriend.”

Philip: “Well, see you on the dueling ground

That is, unless you wanna step outside and go now?”

Eacker: “I know where to find you, piss off, I’m watchin’ this show now”

Philip: “Pops, if you had only heard the shit he said about you

I doubt you would have let it slide and I was not about to!”

Alex: “Slow down!”

Philip: “I came to ask you for advice, this is my very first duel

They don’t exactly cover this subject in boarding school!”

Alex: “Did your friends attempt to negotiate a peace?”

Philip: “He refused to apologize, we had to let the peace talks cease.”

Alex: “Where is this happening?”

Philip: “Across the river, in Jersey…”

Philip/Alex: “Everything is legal in New Jersey!”

You didn’t notice it until just then, but the woman playing Titania looked like she was listening in from off to the side.

Alex: “Alright, so this is what you’re gonna do (Titania: “Never be satisfied…”)

Stand there like a man until Eacker is in front of you.                    .  

When the time comes, fire your weapon in the air (Helpless….”)

This will put an end to the whole affair!”

(Titania: “Please, say no to this…”)

Philip: “But what if he decides to shoot? Then I’m a goner…”

Alex: “No, he’ll follow suit if he’s truly a man of honor

To take someone’s life, that is something you can’t shake

Philip, your mother can’t take another heartbreak…”

(Titania: “Please don’t leave me, I am helpless…”)

Philip: “Father!”

Alex: “Promise me

You don’t want this young man’s blood on your conscience!

Philip: “Okay, I promise…”

Alex: “Come back home when you’re done.

Take my guns, be smart, make me proud, son “

You were expecting the normal switch between the normal melody and Philip’s rap, but that didn’t happen. Instead it slowed down a bit.

Titania: “Look around, look around

At how lucky we are to be alive right now…

Look around, look around!”

Philip turned to find her there, he didn’t seem happy.

Philip: “You weren’t supposed to know…”

Titania: “I should have known…”

Philip: “Titania, you know me!”

Titania: “You’re fighting for something that happened over a month ago!”

Philip: “No!”

Titania: “I must survive until this war is done

But I deserve a chance

To see the Sun!

Look around, Look around

At how lucky we are to be alive right now!

I don’t need a legacy, (Philip: “He will throw away his shot)

I don’t need money! (History has its eyes on me)

I just need you by my side, (Look into your eyes)

I let you inside my heart! (And the sky’s in them)

Oh! Let me be a part of the narrative (Will be ever be satisfied?)

In the story they will write someday! (I can’t say no to this!”)

Let this moment be the first chapter

Where you decide to stay!”

Philip and Titania separated from each other.

Philip: “My name is Philip

I am a poet (Titania: “Am I not enough?)

And I’m a little nervous, but I can’t show it

I’m sorry, I’m a Hamilton with pride

You talk about my father; I cannot let it slide!                   .

Mister Eacker, how was the rest of your show?

Eacker: “I’d rather skip the pleasantries, let’s go

Grab your pistol! (Could this be enough?)

Philip: “Confer with your men!”                                            

Eacker: “The duel will commence after we count to ten.”              .

Full company: “Count to ten!”

Philip: “Look ‘em in the eye, aim no higher (This must be enough!)

Summon all the courage you require

Then slowly and clearly aim your gun towards the sky…                .

Full Company: “1, 2, 3, 4, 5-“

Titania ran towards Philip

Full company: “6, 7-“ (Wait!”)

(Gunshots)

Fuck…

The One With All The Partying

Pairing/s: Jace Wayland x Reader, Malec

Summary: Jace didn’t like you from the moment he met you; you were prickly and uptight, or so he thought. Things take a funny turn when he tries to save Alec from an unintentional date and ends up saving you instead. Only question is, can anything really romantic happen between two people when one of them has seen the other puke before a first date?

A/N: it’s not exactly a malec imagine, but i thought i’d put it in the tags since it’s in there!

“Who is the new girl?”

“Y/N  Y/L/N,” Alec mumbles, his eyes following your every movement as you train with Hodge, “Our mother brought her here from Idris – says we need someone more skilled.”

Jace scoffs, watching you miss you footing and land on your ass, “I think we’re fine on our own. Though I am a little hurt she would say that when everyone knows I’m the best in the institute.”

Alec rolls his eyes, “Please.”

“You think you can beat me?”

“I know I can,” Alec states, standing up, “$20 says I flip you on your ass in 2 minutes.”

“Deal,” Jace shakes his hand, laughing as he steps backwards and collides with someone, tumbling to the floor.

“Get off,” you growl, pushing him off and standing up.

“Relax, it was an accident,” Jace laughs at the sight of you.

You stare at him, watching as he tosses his blonde hair away from his face. You had heard lots of about Jace Wayland and caught a few glimpses but this was the first time you had actually spoken to him seeing Maryse had kept you busy attending to important business.

“You’re Maryse’s kids,” you state, your eyes landing on Alec, “I was just looking for Isabelle. Know where I can find her?”

“She’s with Meliorn,” Alec blurts out before squeezing his eyes shut, realizing it was a mistake to tell someone so close to Maryse.

You notice both of their expressions and smile slightly, “I’m not going to rat her out,” you inform them, pulling your hair into a ponytail.

“Well, we can’t be sure seeing that you follow our mother around like a lap dog and walk around with a stick up your ass,” Jace retorts, barely looking at you.

You feel your cheeks flush in anger, “As much as I’d love to argue with your Neanderthal friend, I do need some help talking to the new Alpha, Luke. Would you care to come with me, Alec?” you ask, avoiding making eye contact with Jace.

“Uh – sure,” Alec stammers, following far behind you.

When he finally catches up you turn to face him, “Do you mind giving me Magnus’ number?”

“I thought you wanted to talk to Luke?”

You shrug innocently, leaning in the doorway, “Isabelle told me you and Magnus were close.”

Alec looks nervous for a moment before slowly nodding and pulling his phone out, “Why do you need his number?”

“We’re old friends. I lost touch when he went into hiding.”
—————————————————————————————————-

“Magnus!” you squeal, throwing your arms around his neck as he walks into Pandemonium, Alec at your side.

“It’s been too long,” he smiles, ordering a drink as he takes a seat in the booth, “I think the last time I saw you was at a party-“

“3 years ago,” you finish for him, turning to Alec, “We were both so drunk we ended up in a different dimension where Magnus was a fortune teller!”

Alec looks confused, slyly texting Jace under the table.

Alec: This y/n girl, nothing like what we thought. She is totally not a goody two shoes. She’s like the anti - goody two shoes. She’s done like 6 shots already and we’ve only been here 10 minutes!

Jace: What do you mean?

Alec: She knows Magnus and even worse, they used to party together

Jace: Why is that worse?

Alec: Because I’m probably going to have to end up carrying her home! You know how Magnus’ parties are!

Jace: Well, have fun

Alec: What?! NO! You have to come get me out of here!

Jace: Where are you?

Alec: Pandemonium

Jace: Be there in 5

By the time Jace arrives, you’ve already downed what felt like the entire bar. And whilst you were swaying to the music and enjoying having a good time, Magnus was still in the booth with Alec, putting his moves on him.

You couldn’t help but be happy for the two of them, it had been a long time since you’d seen Magnus look at someone like that. In fact, it’d been a long time since you had too. You’d gotten so stuck into your work as being a Shadow hunter and Maryse’s right hand that any time you had to spare was spent partying which meant you could only maintain a late night booty call or a few hook-ups; definitely not a relationship.

“Hey,” a voice calls over the music, a hand slipping around your waist.

You sway your hips against theirs, your head hung back. You feel the hand move away and instead grab your shoulders, jolting you to open your eyes.

“Jace,” you stammer, your eyes growing wide as you recognize his face.

“We have to get out of here,” he informs you, his hand tight around you wrist as he leads you out of the crowd.

“But – I – I don’t wanna go,” you try hard to string the words together correctly without slurring and in your concentration bump into his back as he comes to a stop.

He rolls his eyes, facing Alec and Magnus, “Maryse is looking for us at the Institute. Izzy just called me, we have to get back.”

“But they’re both drunk,” Alec laughs, clearly amused by Magnus swirling pink mist in the air in the shape of a heart.

“You take this one and I’ll take Magnus,” Jace instructs, shoving you slightly towards Alec who catches you.

As Jace pulls Magnus’ arm around his shoulder, Magnus pulls away, shaking his head and pouting like a child, “I want Alec.”

Jace stares at you, half afraid you were going to grab his ass after what had just happened out on the floor.

“What are you thinking?” Alec asks, noticing his concerned expression.

“I don’t want her to think I’m – I’m – that I’m taking advantage of her or anything,” he mumbles and Alec raises a brow, “I’m pretty sure that if you don’t help her out, someone definitely will take advantage of her,” he mumbles, nodding towards a Vampire in the corner who was eyeing you out.

“Alright,” Jace grumbles, trying to help you stand but your legs keep wobbling, “What? You can dance but can’t walk?!”

“These legs were made for dancin’,” you sing, giggling as your heels make you ankle give way, causing you to tumble.

Jace catches you, letting out a heavy sigh as he crouches down, “Get on,” he growls through gritted teeth and you throw your arms around his neck, letting him piggyback you.

Jace looks to Alec who shakes his head, “I am not doing that,” he laughs nervously before noticing Magnus stumbling.

Alec’s cheeks are a bright red as he follows Jace outside with Magnus on his back, sound asleep.

You were rubbing your cheek against Jace’s, your fingers playing with his stubble. He sets you down, waking Magnus up, “Portal us back, it’s too dangerous for us to take you back on bikes.”

“It’s too dangerous for him to portal us back drunk,” Alec warns as he puts Magnus down.

“I’m actually feeling a lot better,” Magnus states, standing up and adjusting his suit.

Alec’s eyes widen, “Were – you were- did you- were you just pretending?!

“Pretending? Alec, I only had one drink tonight. You know that. I never said I was drunk.”

“Bu you were stumbling and-“

“Yes, well, these shoes may be Italian but they aren’t very comfortable.”

Alec is about to reply when Jace puts a hand on his shoulder, “Not important right now, guys. Portal?” he asks Magnus who nods firmly, summoning one.

“Where to?”

“The institute,” Jace states and Alec shakes his head, “Not with her looking like that!”

Jace looks at you. Your dress was tight and short and your hair a little messy. It was an entirely different sight from your usual jeans and t-shirt look.

“So what she’s wearing a party dress?” Jace shrugs and once again Alec shakes his head, “I mean like that,” he nods over to you as you crouch in the alleyway, gagging.

“Okay,” Jace raises both his brows, looking fairly disgusted, “What about Magnus’ place?”

Magnus nods, “Wouldn’t be the first time she crashed at my place after a crazy night out,” he chuckles.
—————————————————————————————————-

“Ah crap,” you groan as you feel light hit your face the next morning. You turn over, your hand scouring the sheets to find your phone, only to hit a warm figure.

“ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!” you scream as your eyes widen, finding Jace shirtless, right next to you.

Jace claps a hand over your mouth, “Shut up. Nothing happened,” he grumbles and you pull his hand away.

“Oh thank god, you’re alive,” you place a hand over your chest.

“Alive? You screamed because you thought I was dead?”

“She killed a very bad Vampire once while drunk – woke up to its body the next morning,” Magnus chuckles as he enters the room.

“And here I was thinking you were scared you lost your virginity to me.”

“Shut up,” you mumble, tossing a pillow at him as you climb out of bed, only to find yourself in Jace’s t-shirt.

“You puked on your own,” he explains, “You insisted I give you mine.”

You’d been in situations far more embarrassing and you shrug, locating your cell phone on the night stand and picking it up, “Shit,” you sigh as you open your notifications to find at least 20 missed calls from Maryse.

“We have to get back,” you state, pulling your jacket over your shoulders. Jace rubs his eyes, climbing out of bed as Alec enters the room, “I see you kept your pants on,” Alec laughs.

“You tried to take your pants off?!” you shout at Jace who rolls his eyes, “No. You did.

“You tried to ‘seduce’ him – in your own words,” Alec teases, tossing Jace a shirt.

“Well – I – I was-“

“She’s been far worse than this. You got the mild side of her, she’s quite the party animal,” Magnus explains and you glare at him.

“Honey, your reputation already went down the drain when you licked Jace’s face.”

Jace shivers as though he was reliving it and you look at him apologetically, “Well, consider this an important lesson. I am not a lap dog and nor do I have a stick up my ass,” you smile and Jace smiles back before Alec clears his throat.

“We’d better get back.”
—————————————————————————————————-

“How’s that hangover treating you?” Jace asks, leaning in the doorway of your room.

“I’m fine,” you laugh lightly, standing up and walking towards him, “Look, thanks for having my back last night. I know we don’t know each other that well so…”

Jace shrugs, “Couldn’t leave you to the vampires, could I?”

He clears his throat, standing up straight, “Just to be clear. I was a perfect gentleman last night, I didn’t try any-“

“I know,” you interrupt him, “I remember everything now. Including you piggybacking me, cleaning up my puke and making me pancakes at 4 in the morning.”

Jace’s eyes widen, “I was just – I was – trying to get you to stop puking on me,” he stammers, running his fingers swiftly through his hair.

“Whatever you say, Wayland.”

“Do you always party that hard?” he laughs, his fingers idly picking up items on your dresser.

“Of course not, only when I have time. This is the first time in months I’ve had a moment away from your mother,” you laugh, pulling your trinket out of his grasp, “I used to spend a lot of time with Magnus – I miss those days.”

“Well, while you’re here you’ll be spending a lot of time with him. I think he’s got his eye on Alec.”

“He totally does,” you giggle, “And for good reason – the guy is gorgeous.

As you place the trinket back down on your dresser, Jace stands behind you, watching your reflection in the mirror, “That’s it? Alec’s the only gorgeous one?”

You turn to face him, your body inches from him, “No of course not,” you pause, smirking, “It runs in the family I guess. Izzy is beautiful,” you shrug.

Jace leers at you, crossing his arms over his chest and stepping closer, “You have nothing nice to say about me?”

“I did,” you pause, “I said it runs in the family. You’re part of their family, right?”

Jace’s expression softens, his arms dropping to his side.

You push past him, walking to your closet, “That’s what Maryse always says, anyway,” you smile, your eyes skimming your closet for something to wear.

Jace’s arm reaches in and pulls out a white dress, “Wear this one,” he hands it to you.

“For training?” you laugh, pushing it aside and he steps in front of you.

“No, for dinner.”

“I’m pretty sure the chef isn’t going to expect me to show up, dressed all fancy just to eat in the cafeteria,” you mumble, your fingers trailing over the hangers.

Jace catches you by your wrist, turning you to face him and holding the dress up against you, “For dinner. With me. Tonight,” he says through gritted teeth, wondering whether he should really be going out with someone so oblivious.

“Oh,” you say in surprise, taking the dress out of his hand.

“What? You don’t want to?” he asks, rubbing his neck in embarrassment.

“No, it’s just – I’ve never had a guy want to go out with me after watching me puke…”

Jace laughs, looking down at the floor before his eyes meet yours, “I’ll see you at seven then?”

“Seven sounds perfect,” you grin and he softly presses a kiss to your cheek before leaving. Maybe you’d finally be able to be in a relationship after all.

Listen hear me out I am going to hc Isak with ocd

OCD doesn’t necessarily mean you’re neat and particular

  • Isak is a bit of a mess and people always ask how he is OCD if his clothes are strolled around his and Even’s apartment 
  • But it’s not like that, Isak would totally pick up his clothes if he wasn’t so concerned with the fact that he has to keep checking the front door to make sure it’s locked even though he has checked it a total of 5 times in the last 3 minutes 
  • If Isak picks his clothes up now his is afraid that will be when he forgets to check the front door the one time it wasn’t locked and then he is going to be hurt and or robbed. 

Isak has been standing in his and Even’s bathroom for a while now and he has just noticed it is three in the morning, and he has been scrubbing his pocket change because he was worried it could contaminate his clothes and make him a danger to the people around him, especially Even. 

OCD also often coexists with depression.

  • Isak definitely knows this because constant obsessing and feeling forced to keep everything you’ve ever owned safe to the point of isolation can be pretty fucking depressing

Checking is also fun….not

  • Isak checks that the stove is off at least four times before he can sit down to eat a meal
  • Also when Even walks to work and Isak hears an ambulance Even can probably expect at least four to five messages asking if he is okay because Isak was afraid that ambulance was for him, even though Isak was just texting him a minute ago
  • Isak’s homework is always stressful for him, not because it is difficult but because he is constantly checking and rechecking for mistakes to the point his brain is hurting, so he asks Even to check it for him and of course Even will and he may have to check a few times and he is totally okay with that, he just wants to help Isak in anyway that he can

Isak has learned to deal with his OCD the best he can but there are still times that life feels too tiring and too hard and that’s okay because him and Even are going to try to take things minute for minute.
