this video explains my life at the moment

Seijou Youtubers AU #1

Have you not realised I am a slut for Seijou and youtubers? I have so many parallels for ships like Matsuhan and Iwaoi you have no freaking idea, and I can’t help but procrastinate about what it would be like if Oikawa and Iwaizumi were both Youtubers sharing an apartment, kinda like Dan and Phil. I mean, they’re both a pair of best friends that people ship with each other so why not? This will have a few parts, this is merely the summary. I’ll go into details in different specific posts.

-Important-

Please note, that though most of these headcanons are drawn from Dan and Phil, not every single one of them is inspired the British duo. I am very aware that Dan and Phil may not be involved in a relationship and I do not wish to disrespect them by assuming they are. In other words, if they are indeed not together, and find someone else they decide to start a family with etc, I as a fan will be happy for them.

I am going with the headcanon that Iwaizumi and Oikawa are openly dating each other.

 - Iwaoi -

  • Oikawa basically makes videos of male apparel, life advice, vlogs, gym routines and pretty much anything that comes to mind. He also has a long running series on his channel where he takes in requests for a tag or challenge, then films it with Iwaizumi on Friday; things they have done include the 7 second challenge, chapstick challenge, miracle berry and even attempting to put on a hundred layers of socks.
  • Oikawa live-streams on Saturday at odd times cause usually, he’s really busy with other more “Personal” stuff. Iwaizumi used to live-stream on Sundays but now, he does it on Tuesdays. Fans suspect it’s because they have some cheeky bum sex on weekends and Iwaizumi is either too sore to live-stream or too doused in hickies. It has been hinted multiple times by Oikawa that he gets jealous really easily and has a propensity to display it physically.
  • Sometimes when Hajime is streaming, Tooru would come and start kissing his neck or give him a quick peck on the lips. When reversed, Iwaizumi would simply plop himself beside the brunette while resting his head on the taller’s shoulders and start browsing his phone. When fans comment how domestic they’re acting, they tend to laugh it off.
  • Tooru calling Hajime babe sometimes when he live-streams and wants something, the raven just coming in like “What?” with some random-ass granola bar.
  • When Oikawa has a fan telling him they’re new, he’ll greet them with words like, “Thanks for deciding to watch me!” or “That’s great, I hope you look forward to more content!”. Iwaizumi is just like, “I’m so sorry.” or “You must be pretty lonely if you decided to watch me of all people so I guess it’s my responsibility to ensure you don’t feel so alone.” People think he’s this really asshole like guy but fans who have met him in real life say he’s one of the nicest people they’ve ever met.
  • Iwaizumi makes gaming videos, mainly horror or PS4 games he’s fond of, and he swears so fucking much it’s actually funny, one of the most memorable moments was when he was playing Outlast and called the dude in the game “A even more fucked up version of Oikawa on drugs”, and to give context to his viewers, he explained that Oikawa had wondered into their room with a facemask on at 3 am in the morning scaring the shit out of him.
  • Both of their channels have around seven million subscribers, though Iwa did begin his channel a little earlier.
  • Tooru has a very outgoing personality so he usually engages with other’s really well. Even at events or fan-meet-ups, he tries his best to take a picture with every one of them. Iwaizumi is socially awkward but he gives really good hugs to those he knows need them.
  • He has to drag Oikawa away from fans if he constantly dwaddles, their friends merely say it’s Iwaizumi’s way of showing he’s jealous.
  • Oikawa has stated a few times he’s bisexual while Iwaizumi says he doesn’t really like labels. They’ve been dating for over five years but only recently came out as a couple. 
  • They have a cat called Princess that fancies Iwaizumi over Oikawa, when she appears in one of Oikawa’s blogs, she’s most commonly found lying on Hajime’s lap. Oikawa would most of the time turn to the camera and murmur, “What a spoiled piece of shit.” Before scoffing and resuming his intended task. She’s a snow white maine coon Hajime rescued from a ditch.
  • Fans noticed that when Hajime does playthroughs, Princess is either beside him or on him 90% of the time. 
  • The duo having a short series of them taking care of Takeru, and in the process, the internet sees how good of a cook Iwaizumi is and what good parents they’ll be.
  • Oikawa calling Iwa-chan compilations, done by Hajime just to prove how often he says it. It’s one of his most popular video and he doesn’t understand why.
  • Iwaizumi rarely vlogs, he calls it a hassle. But he does appear a lot in Oikawa’s vlogs so fans are cool with it. Besides gaming, sometimes he does song covers because this fucker can play the guitar and has an amazing voice, he even wrote a song once for Oikawa and made him react to it, he cried. They do a Q&A over on Hajime’s channel twice every year, one at the beginning and one at the end.
  • Tooru steals Iwaizumi’s cereal all the time. Which only results in a pissed off raven talking about it on one of his live-streams. Apparently other things Oikawa regularly does on a daily basis is leave his glasses in the fridge, sneak onto Iwaizumi’s laptop and change the background to weird pictures of aliens, hog the blanket, spill coffee all over their coffee table and print out candids of the raven before sticking them around their house. Once, he also mentioned that Tooru also sleep-talked and it was the creepiest thing to hear without context. He was going on about dicing some sort of motherfucker but it turns out he was trying to chop some onions without crying in his dreams.
  • Hajime casually stealing Tooru’s hoodies to get back for his empty cereal boxes. Oikawa says that when they aren’t filming, Hajime tends to wear his shirt and walk around in only that along with his boxers.
  • They occasionally film with their close friends Hanamaki and Mattsun who share a prank channel named ‘TheDankMemes
  • Hajime’s most popular video is the one of him singing the song he wrote for Oikawa.
  • Oikawa’s most popular video was the chapstick challenge, but now it’s his marriage proposal to Hajime ;)
  • Tooru vlogging them planning their wedding; choosing matching tuxes and deciding on a location. They chose the beach.
I’m not ashamed fragment

(this post is just a kinda joke, don’t take it seriously. aand sorry if there are language mistakes, I am not an English native speaker) 

So, I watched some parts of film “I’m not ashamed” earlier with face fulled of confusion and “whattafuckness” and I cannot keep silence cause it’s sooo fucked up. The whole film is nothing but a mistake like the birth of Justin Bieber or Bulgaran singer Azis. 

I just whatched and analized (if I can say so) only this 14 minutes fragment consist of “Eric” and “Dylan” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKAkHR5Xb9w 

And… I was laughing so hard cause I haven’t seen anything more redicilous connected with Eric and Dylan before.

this was my face when I was watching it:

- I saw a 40years old musclebound man wearing grandpa shorts and blue like a summer sky t-shirt who appears to be Eric.

really? you wanna make me believe that he was wearing just blue t-shirt without any print and… it’s blue. we all know about Eric’s preferences of dark colors in clothes.  just look at him.  I would fucking bully him for these clothes too cause it’s terrible

- then I saw Dylan in a “wrath” t-shirt 

Dylan. In a WRATH t-shirt. In his daily life at school. Just wearing this. Yeah. Sure. Maybe he was shooting school every time he was wearing that t-shirt? 

Dylan: Oh, today’s Monday. What I am wearing every Monday? A wrath t-shirt. Riight. 

what is this? jocks in white hats to be worn bill backwards? yeeeahh 

- HOLY SHIIT JUST LOOK AT THESE MUSCELS HE COULD FUCKING DESTROY ALL THOSE JOCKS EASY-PEASY

- wait a minute… what Bones is doing there 

Well, I assume this whole scene with baby oil is nothing but a concentration of confusion.

- the teacher is talking bout nazis and natural selection at the class. it seems like teacher gave Eric an idea of natural selection stuff. and it seems like teacher doesn’t know the difference between natural and artificial selection. his autistic facial expression betrayes himself.

- THEY WANT ME TO FUCKING BELIEVE THAT GIRLS AT SCHOOL WERE DRESSING LIKE EMO TUMBLR GIRL FROM 2K16 IN 1999?? 

JUST LOOK AT HER FASHION HAIRSTYLE SHE LOOKS LIKE FUCKING INFORMAL EMO  AND SHE’S HANGING OUT WITH THOSE GIRLS WHO ARE IN GOOD RELATIONSHIPS WITH JOCKS?? WEARING A TRENCH COAT IS NOT OKAY IN THEIR SCHOOL BUT BEING AN EMO OR WTF IS THIS IS COOL? WHERE’S A FUCKING LOGIC??

-OH YES! GIRLS OF NINETIES HAD STRAIGHT SHINY HAIR 
 SHE HAD VISITED BEAUTY SALOON BEFORE COMING TO SCHOOL U KNOW EVERY GIRL OF THAT TIME DID THAT 
NOTHING SPECIAL

EVEN GODDAMNED HOLYWOOD SUPERSTARS DIDN’T HAVE SUCH HAIR

-I can’t believe Eric was wearing red shirt like this. red shirt like a blood which is streaming from my eyes instead of tears while I’m watching this

- LOOK AT THESE HAIRY 40YEARS OLD MAN’S ARMS 

THEY CANNOT BELONG TO A TEENAGER THESE ARMS BELONG TO RANDY ORTON OR SOMEONE ELSE BUT NOT TO A TEENAGER SERIOUSLY 

-SOOO APPARENTLY THERE WERE 5 SHOOTERS: ERIC, DYLAN AND THESE THREE BOYS IN TRENCH COATS. 

-AAND THEY ARE PLAYING SOME GAME WHICH LOOKS LIKE IT’S FROM 2003 ON A OLD AS DINOSAUR’S SHIT TV 

Eric: hey, Dyl, we should shoot up the school and yeeess it’s totally mine idea. 

Dylan: woooww duuude you scared me aloooot cause I never thought about school shooting before 


-Eric in Natural Selection t-shirt at school. I’m done. I’m fucking done. 

-no, i’m not done yet because… because whhatttafuck?? can someone explain me why they are whatching this at class?? 

damn girl, it was just a homemade video, why are you shitting bricks  like they were tearing apart a little yeanling on the screen

-THEY ARE BULLING CHRISTIAN  GIRL OOHH THEY ARE SUCH CRUEL MONSTERS WHAT AN ATROCITY GEEEZZZ

-no comments

-and yes. they are talking about dog. oh, sorry. God. they are actually were talking with her at that moment. yeah. why not. 


Well. I wasted 14 minutes of my life watching that. “14 minutes not so much” someone can say. but these 14 minutes were the most wasting time minutes in my entire life. I would rather watched  video with totally white wall than this.

I don’t wanna offend anyone who did like this film (lying). But just admit it: it’s bad. It’s really bad. Really.

[Masterlist] [Guideline]

isn’t it crazy how you can be having a terrible day that leaves you feeling helpless and forgetting how to smile and then you come home, go online and find your favourite video or see there’s a liveshow you haven’t seen yet and then their face appears on your screen and you’re taken out of your solemn mood. their smile makes you smile, suddenly you’re laughing when only moments before you were in tears. the power these people have to bring joy into my life will never fail to astound me. words will never be able to truly explain just how thankful i am for Dan and Phil for doing what they do.

Ana Lily Amirpour Responds to Racism Charges — But Won’t Apologize For Making You Uncomfortable

Ana Lily Amirpour seems like the ultimate counterpunch to Hollywood’s diversity problem. She’s an Iranian woman director raised in America, directing inventive genre movies with an anarchic sensibility all her own. While much of the country celebrated the feminist leanings of “Wonder Woman,” Amirpour had already finished “The Bad Batch,” her horror-sci-fi-western hybrid about a dystopian world in which a young woman battles cannibals in a desolate wasteland. The movie, which premiered at the festivals last fall, confirmed Amirpour’s capacity for exploring marginalized figures through the empowering lens of ferocious female characters first seen in her acclaimed debut, “A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night.”

Which was why, eight months into her promotional tour for “The Bad Batch,” Amirpour was astonished to find herself accused of racism. During a post-screening Q&A for “The Bad Batch” in Chicago, Amirpour was confronted by a woman named Bianca Xiunse, who demanded to know why all the black characters in the movie were killed.

The complaint appeared to be a reaction to one scene in particular. In the film, which is set in a near future in which prisoners are unleashed into a lawless desert, Arlen (Suki Waterhouse) comes upon one of the cannibals who had kidnapped and mutilated her in the opening minutes.

Now armless, Arlen confronts Maria (Yolonda Ross), the wife of Cuban cannibal Miami Man (Jason Momoa), along with her young daughter. Arlen shoots Maria, but spares the child; later, Miami Man tracks Arlen down to exact revenge, but the pair end up falling in love as they face down a much scarier threat — a stone-faced tyrant named The Dream (Keanu Reeves), who lords over the nearby town of Comfort with an iron grip.

While one reading of “The Bad Batch” would find two outcasts (a one-armed woman and a vilified immigrant) joining forces to take down an evil white man, Xiunse wanted to know why Amirpour felt it was necessary for the black characters to perish.

“I found it offensive,” she said. “So I’m curious, what was your message for it?”

In video of the moment, Amirpour cocks her head, seemingly baffled by the response, and asks the moderator to repeat the question. (As she would later explain, the filmmaker is 30 percent deaf.) Finally, she offered a succinct response. “Just because I give you something to look at, doesn’t mean I’m telling you what to see.”

The audience cheered, and Xiunse turned to Twitter to further vent her frustrations. “I have never felt such an embarrassment in my life,” she wrote. Later that night, Amirpour checked her social media account, saw the complaints, and blocked Xiunse; when Xiunse called her out, Amirpour wrote, “How am I supposed to respond you calling my film anti black? It’s so crazy. It offended me. So I blocked you.”

So began a social media storm of vitriol on both sides, with Amirpour’s fans leaping to her defense and others lashing out against her; Xiunse herself even did an interview about the experience. Amirpour acknowledged that she reacted too quickly on Twitter, which she has since deleted from her phone, but she’s still aghast about the experience as a whole.

“I’m a brown woman immigrant, my family escaped the Iranian Revolution, I grew up on two continents, English wasn’t the first language in my home,” she said over lunch in New York a few days before the film’s release. “I know what it is to be the ‘other’ very, very well. My film and my filmmaking is all about asking questions about how the system pits us against each other. If anything, this movie is about how we are eating each other. It’s fine, I get it, some people don’t see those things or ask those questions. Cinema is a private, personal experience for individual. But this felt personal against me.”

She was also astonished about the complaints regarding the color of the character’s skin. “Why wouldn’t he be married to a black woman? Jason Momoa is married to a black woman. It’s how I see the world — it’s a modern relationship,” she said. “They have a mixed-race child. She’s the future, in this wonderful way.”

But Amirpour didn’t have the opportunity for that nuanced reaction at the time, and then came the second wave: Internet forums picked up on an old photo posted to social media in which Amirpour dressed up as Lil Wayne for Halloween. If she had been a white person wearing blackface, that would have been ever tougher to wriggle away from — but Amirpour’s not about to apologize for that one, either.

“What could I do?” She asks. “I feel nothing but joy about the fact that I dressed up like Lil Wayne for Halloween. I’m brown. I didn’t do anything wrong. That’s what I look like when I put my hat on and tattoos on my face. I love Weezy. I just have to believe in myself, that I’m a good person, having fun on planet Earth like anyone else.”

Amirpour’s experience may not permanently tarnish her reputation, but it’s indicative of a single-minded director who has been gradually forced to deal with the challenges associated with a rising profile. The last two years of her career were all about forward momentum, with support systems to sustain her vision on her own terms.

When she came to Sundance with “A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night” in 2014, she had no agent, and insisted on controlling every facet of her film — including its distribution deal, which she decided to avoid closing until after the festival. “I was going off instinct, but my instinct was, if you want to fuck me now, you have to want to fuck me four months from now,” she said. (The movie eventually sold to Kino Lorber, well after it opened New Directors/New Films in New York that March.) In the meantime, she had started writing “The Bad Batch,” and after Sundance she was approached by Vice creative director Danny Gabai. From there, a wealth of new resources came her way.

So my sister and I were talking about Jon’s change since his resurrection and she came up with this idea. 

In this video, Kit Harington was explaining how Jon has changed in such a way that isn’t necessarily for the best. He said:

“That’s what’s changed in Jon from here. A monster has risen in him a bit, which I think should be unsettling for the viewers.”

While Kit Harington was specifically referring to Battle of the Bastards as a life altering moment for Jon, my sister suggested that it’s possible that this “monster” in Jon is a product of something that’s simmered in him from the moment he came back to life. This “monster” that Jon becomes is something that is driven by anger, fury, hatred. When we watch him battling his way to Winterfell, we watch him kill as many men as he possibly can and look as if he’s doing it to unleash all his emotions, not because he has to battle them. I mean come on, we see him stand before a whole cavalry of his enemies like “come at me bro”. 

These extreme emotions are fuelled by passion, something animalistic and difficult to tame. 

So my sister was suggesting that if Jon x Sansa does happen, the simmering passion in Jon is the reason for all those lingering gazes, tenderness, and *cough*foreheadkisswiththelingeringgazeonherlips*cough? I’ve seen lots of posts saying that between him and Sansa, he seems to be discreetly (or not so) drawn to her in a non-sibling way. 

Jon going all haywire in Battle of the Bastards happened because watching Rickon die was the cherry on top for all the crap he’s been through in life. What if finding out that he’s a Targaryen is the cherry on top that will finally drive Jon towards Sansa? Ever since his death and resurrection, he’s changed. Jon is more impulsive, more passionate, and more of a risk taker. Maybe he isn’t even aware of it yet (if they do play it up that he’ll have feelings for Sansa), but it’s there, and it’s waiting for the chance to be spurned on by passion when Jon finally gives in. After all, it wouldn’t be the first time he experienced forbidden love (Ygritte was a wildling who was completely off limits to him).

Jon and Sansa happening because one or both other them having feelings for one another would be a dream. I don’t want to count on it, but it’s interesting if you look at it from this angle. He has changed, to what extent is still unknown. It’d be cool if D&D made Jon conflicted over his feelings for Sansa, cus what Jon x Sansa fangirl wouldn’t want that?

Imagine Him Proposing To You

*Video* Dan: “Hello, internet!” Dan greets, cheerily. “So, today is kind of a big deal. ‘Why?’ you may be asking. Today is the day I may or may not  be getting engaged.” Dan clasped his hands together and smiled wide at the camera.

“I’ve been wanting to do this for a while now and I just woke up today and was like, today’s the day. It also helped that Phil’s been bugging me to do this since he found the ring in his closet last week.”

“I was rather excited, to be honest,” Phil chimes in from his spot on the couch just out of shot.

“Probably more excited then she’ll be.”

“If she’s excited..” Phil  says quietly.

“Don’t say that!” Dan cries, leaning over to smack his best friend with a pillow.

“It could happen,” Phil pointed out.

“But you aren’t supposed to tell me that!” Dan fretted, holding a hand over his heart.

The door swings open as you stomp in, throwing your backpack in one of the colorful dining chairs. You look up as Dan and Phil both go silent. “Oh… Sorry. You should’ve told me you were filming and I would’ve gone to the library,” you say, hoisting your bag over your shoulder so you can go do your homework in the other room.

“No, love, it’s fine. We’ll just cut it out later.”

“Okay…” You mutter.

You’re probably half way up the stairs to the little office when Dan’s voice cuts through the air. “Come film with us.”

“Dan, I have too much homework… I have tests I need to study for, a paper to write, and God knows how much other shit to do.”

“Please, love,” Dan whined, looking at you with big brown eyes. You release a heavy groan and sit on the couch next to  him. “Thank you.”

“Be grateful I love you…” You grumble, fixing your fringe.

“I always am.”

Dan receives a sharp elbow to his bicep and an expectant sky blue gaze from Phil. 'Are you going to do it or not?’ he types on his phone.

There’s the release of a heavy sigh as Dan looks exasperatedly at the camera. “I guess we should get on with the show, shouldn’t we?”

“I’m going to take that as my cue to leave,”  you say, starting to stand only to be pulled back down by Dan’s hand on your leg and Phil’s around your forearm.

“No. You’re essential to this video,” Phil explains.

“Oh God…. What did I walk into?”

“Possibly the best moment of your life.”

“Phil, shut up,” Dan says, trying desperately to keep his cheeks from going pink.

“I’m just saying.”

Dan takes a deep breath and gives you an apologetic smile. “I have a question…” He says quietly.

“I possibly have an answer,” you respond.

“How long have we been together?”

You clicked your tongue in thought, counting on your fingers. “Around six years.”

“That’s a long time.”

“It is.”

“And how many of those six years have you been living with us?”

“Three very long, but very entertaining years.”

“How many fights would you say we’ve had?”

You furrow your eyebrows. “Hundreds. Well, that’s only if you include the petty fights over nothing.”

“Excluding those.”

“I don’t know. Not many.”

“So, you think we get along rather well?”

“I like to think so, yes.”

“Good.”

“You’re one question turned into four, Dan. I think it’s my turn. Why are you asking when you know all the answers yourself?” You ask, staring at him with Y/E/C eyes.

“Just reassurance, I suppose. One more question?”

“Last one and then I need to go do my homework.”

“This is an important one. Consider your answer carefully.”

“Stop stalling, Dan.”

“Ring me, Phil!” He shouts, holding out his hand to  his  best friend.

“You’ve been rang, Dan!” Phil shouts, placing a black box in the outstretched hand.

Dan looks at the camera and clears his throat. “Anyway.” He takes one of your fidgeting hands and opens it with your palm to the sky. He sits the box in your hand and lifts the lid as Phil sings a high-pitched, 'Ah’. {A/N: You guys know what I mean by that?}

“Final question. Are you ready?” Dan asks, staring at your wide-eyes and shocked expression.

“Sure…” You mutter quietly.

“This is a ring. A rather pretty ring that has been hiding in Phil’s closet for the past two months. A hidden ring that is looking for a home that is not a closet. It’s hoping for a hand. Possibly yours if you agree to these terms and conditions.”

“Dan, no one reads the terms and conditions,” Phil says.

“I don’t care.”

“I’ll read the terms and conditions just this one time,” you say.

“By agreeing to these terms and conditions, you are agreeing to becoming an official member of the Howell family. This will come with a personal change of or addition to your name upon acceptance. You also agree to be a loving companion, wife, and possibly, one day, mother. There may be a bombardment of fans but you will be okay with it because it comes with the job.  You will agree to spend the rest of your life with me. By agreeing to these terms and conditions you are agreeing to marry me on a later date. Do you agree to these terms and conditions?” Dan finishes.

You give him a soft smile. “I agree to these terms and conditions.”

“Thank you for agreeing,” he says, taking the ring from the box and slipping it on your left ring finger before pecking your lips.

Phil comes into the shot, covering the kiss. “Relationship goals!” He cries.



Phil:  "He has the ring and everything. He hid it in my sock drawer,“ Dan tells you over the phone while you’re walking around campus at University.

"Dan, aren’t proposals supposed to be a secret?” You ask, unsurely.

“I just want you to know that way you don’t do anything rash and decide  to run away with Channing Tatum or something crazy like that.”

“I dunno. Channing is pretty great…”

“Y/N!” Dan shouts in horror.

“I’m not going to run off into the sunset with Channing Tatum, Dan.”

“Good. You’ve been around for this long. I don’t want to lose you now. But, I just might if Phil doesn’t grow a fucking pair and ask you!”

“Awe! Is Phil too nervous?” You coo.

“YES!”

“Okay. Thank you for bursting my eardrum.”

“I’m not even sorry.”

“Are you ever?”

“No. Not really.”

“Figures.  Now, I have an idea.” You walk quickly towards your final class of the day while telling your plan to Dan in a hushed voice.

“Brilliant,” Dan says. You can almost hear the smile in his voice as he disconnects the call.

You could hardly pay attention in your final class. You were too busy setting all the little details into place to take good notes. And you’re pretty sure you missed the day that your next paper was due….

———————————————————————————

You ran up the stairs to the apartment you shared with your boyfriend and his best friend. You threw your bag down by the door and stopped dead in your tracks when you heard laughter and a lot of high pitched screaming.

You poked your head into the living room and raised an eyebrow at Dan lying face first on the couch, muttering quietly as Phil laughed.

“I take it you won?” You ask, leaning against the doorframe.

“For once!” Phil smiles wide at you, setting the controller down and getting up to come envelope your slight frame in a tight hug.

You bury your face in his shirt, breathing in the sweet smell of Phil. “Can I ask you a question?” You ask, your voice getting muffled by the fabric.

“Can I ask you one?” Phil asks.

You nod. “You first.”

“No. You asked first. You can go first.”

“No. You go first,” you push.

“Let’s just both ask on three.  Ready?” Phil decides.

You nod. “One.”

“Two.”

“Wait…” You stop.

“What?”

“Are we going after three or now?”

Phil laughs slightly. “After three, I guess.”

“Okay. Three.”

There’s a slight pause that seems to last forever. “Will you marry me?” You both ask at once.

Screaming. Wide eyes. Eventually, a big smile. But, not from you, or Phil, for that matter. They were from Dan. He was jumping around in circles, screaming, “Fucking yeah!”

You and Phil both laugh at him. “Yes,” Phil says, hugging you tighter.

“Yes,” you say, looking up into his brilliant blue eyes.

He takes your left hand in his larger one and slips a little ring onto your fourth finger. He captures your lips in his soft ones, sealing the lasting promise with a kiss.

the wonder years are sort of the only thing I’ve ever found that makes sense to me, and when I met them, I had Dan write “I don’t even know what I’m upset about” for me because when I saw it in the came out swinging music video when it first came out, it was the first time I had ever felt understood, and since then I’ve always used that quote to explain the way I feel and I’ve used it as a motivation towards my recovery. Getting this tattoo was one of the most monumental moments of my life and I have never been more thankful for a group of people and the music they make.

Breakfast at Tiffany's - Jack Howard Imagine

“I’m popping out for a bit, okay sweetie?” I vaguely remember Jack whispering that to me in what seemed like the early hours of the morning. I stumbled out of bed to the window, I pushed back the curtians in one big swoop to reveal the New York skykine. The goldern rays piereced through the tall, strong skyscraper’s. I began to get ready for the day ahead still with the curtains completly open because at this moment I didn’t care about anything or anyone except spending a beautiful day with Jack.

*ding* I grabbed my phone before it vibrated off the bed side table, it was a message from Jack “Meet me outside tiffanys, let’s relive the movie!” I was practically bouncing off the walls once I read the message, straight away I did my make up more Aubry Hepburn-ly grabbed my bag and off I went, to meet Jack at Tiffany’s.

As I approached the overly ginormous store, I saw quite a few couples smiling and sharing bagels. Out of my eye I saw Jack with his arms in the air waving, trying to get my attention. I immediately ran towards him, he spread his arms out as I ran into them, he hugged me tight. We both leant against the wall of Tiffany’s, Jack picked up the brown paper bag that was at his feet. “Toasted plain bagel with cream cheese” I grabbed the bagel out of his hand “you know me so well Mr Howard.” For the next 20 minutes we ate our bagels and sipped our coffee as I rested my head on Jack’s shoulder as we watched the world go by, couples that had the same idea of us came and went we just stood there taking it all in. After 20 minutes we started playing one of my favourite games, what’s their story? I chose a business man who was jogging down the street but stopped when he got to the crossing and waited for the green man with a smile on his face. “See that business man there Jack okay this is his story, he’s running to work because he’s late yes?” “Yes Y/N” “but he’s smiling yes? And waiting at the crossing” “yes” “he’s running to work because this morning as he was just about to leave his little boy ran out of the house with no shoes on just to give him another kiss and tell him to have a good day at work! He is smiling because of that and he stopped at the crossing because right now in his life he’s happy and it isn’t worth maybe him hurting himself just to get to work on time!” “Y/N I love your imagination and I love you.”

“I love you too Jacky, okay your go!” “Wait Y/N let me do something else first” Jack knelt down on one knee “what are you doing jack?” “Y/N your the love of my life, I’ve never met someone so alike but so different to me, I love teaching you new things and you doing the same to me, watching great movies with you that you’ve never seen, you trying to explain why (your favourite TV show) is the best thing ever made other than my videos of course. Y/N I knew from the moment I kissed you that I wanted to be able to kiss you all the time and call you mine, so Y/N will you marry me so I can kiss you for the rest of our lives?” Jack pulled out a pale blue box and opened it gently to reveal the most beautiful ring I’ve ever seen but if I’m honest it could of been a haribo gummy ring and I wouldn’t care. I placed my hands on the sides of his face and kissed him, it felt like the first time we kissed, the start of something new. “Yes Jack yes of course I’ll marry you” “really Y/N?” “Yes fucking really Jack.”

Jack slid the gorgeous ring on to my finger and picked me up and span me around. As he gently popped me back on to the ground, we were greeted with a round of applause from all the couples around Tiffany’s, I smiled as I leant into Jack’s chest. “Okay my go, you see that skateboarder over there Y/N?”

Hope you enjoyed it! I take requests so message me if you would like an imagine. Lots more Jack Howard imagines to come! Liv.

Burning the paper… he looked so good like sooo good. I think this era really showcased his acting skills… well not just Jimin but all the boys and wow just..

Christmas Party (Joe Sugg Christmas Imagine)

Christmas Imagine- Day 15

You were at Jim and Tanya’s Christmas party with all of your friends. You were stood in the kitchen talking to Joe while all the couples caught up in the living room.

‘Does it bother you that they’re all perfectly coupled up and we’re still single?’ he asked.

'A little’ you admitted feeling slightly envious of all of their relationships.

'Maybe we should get together’ Joe joked.

'Maybe we should’ you laughed.

'Maybe you should what?’ Jim asked interrupting.

'We were just talking about how you guys are all in relationships, I said maybe me and Y/N should get together’ Joe explained.

'Even if you don’t please can you pretend and prank the others?’ Jim asked.

'That would make a great video’ Joe agreed pulling out his camera and explaining the plan into it’s lens.

'I’ll hide a couple of camera’s in the other room’ Jim told you, 'I’ll let you know when they’re set up’

You watched as Jim left you and Joe alone in the kitchen.

'At least when they inevitably ask about my love life I won’t sound so pathetic!’ you told Joe.

'Well you do have a pretty amazing boyfriend at the moment’ he winked throwing his arm around you.

'Yeah right’ you laughed as the two of you went over to the others who were all fussing over Martha.

'How are you two anyway?’ Niomi asked, you couldn’t remember the last time you’d seen her.

'Yeah good thanks’ you looked over at Jim he gave you a subtle thumbs up. Joe slid his hand into yours giving it a little squeeze.

'Are you two together now?’ she exclaimed as her eyes widened and everyone stopped for a moment to look at you and Joe.

'Joe and Y/N?’ Alfie laughed but then realised you were holding hands.

'You never told me!’ Zoe said to her brother coming over to give you both a hug. 'I’m happy for you guys’

You and Joe spent the rest of the night swigging drinks and answering questions about your pretend relationship. You were enjoying having Joe by your side all night holding your hand and wrapping his arms around you. Although it was meant to be a prank something about it just felt right.

'You want another drink?’ Joe asked and you nodded following him out into the kitchen. 'I can’t believe this prank’s going so well, everyone believes you’re actually my girlfriend’ he told you chuckling.

'I know it’s brilliant’ you agreed.

'Is it bad that I’m kind of enjoying it?’ Joe bit his lip.

'What do you mean?’

'I mean I like being your pretend boyfriend… It’s nice’

'Oh… I know, if I keep almost forgetting it’s just pretend’

'Me too’ Joe took a step closer to you tucking a stray hair behind your ear.  He leant down so his face was millimetres from his. 'Is this ok?’ he whispered. You gave the tiniest nod as you felt his lips pressing into yours.

'What’s going on in here?’ Jim asked interrupting you yet again.

'I think our pretend relationship just became a real one’ Joe told him looking at you for confirmation and you nodded. Joe was the best Christmas present you could’ve asked for.

anonymous asked:

can you describe your reaction to getting admitted into stanford/checking your application status? i'm excited to hear about it!

aww this is so cute! <3 i actually do have a reaction video but it’s very ugly and lame so i’m not going to show it here, but BASICALLY how this went was that i was really open that i applied to stanford early. like pretty much everyone from my school knew and i had no problem talking about it, everyone on here knew, my extended family knew, it was just common knowledge. it was also common knowledge to me that i would get rejected from stanford and i was pretty chill about it because i was like hey i’ll be applying to 13 other schools, i can’t possibly get rejected from all of them (like i’d also done umich EA and i mean you can never be sure about these things but i knew i had a solid shot) but whenever someone asked “oh libby, where did you apply early?” the answer was never “stanford,” it was always “stanford, but i’m going to be rejected.” it was like one of those psychiatric tests where your shrink says a word and you have to respond in a fraction of a second, if you said stanford i’d have said rejection. i just knew it. i would say it to myself every day so i wouldn’t get my hopes up. because stanford, even though i was a legacy with an uncommon major, is still pretty much impossible, even EA as it’s still only around 10% admission. and i knew that i was okay but i wasn’t special. and i did not even allow myself to consider the alternative. i am the quintessential optimistic pessimist and i expect the worst for every situation i’m into because i know i’m either right or i’ll be nothing less than ecstatic if i’m wrong. but i didn’t think about being wrong, with stanford. i knew what they needed and i knew who i was and i knew (and i know) that those things would never be congruent.

so even though i consider myself a rational person, even though i wove my feelings into a life jacket to keep me afloat during those dark december days, there’s nothing quite like getting your first college decision. sure, i’d been admitted to rutgers back in october, but stanford was different. stanford was my first complete application and stanford was around the same time as everyone i knew was hearing back about their decisions, and stanford was lovely and warm and prestigious and thousands of miles away from home and stanford was a game-changer. and i could say a rejection from stanford wouldn’t affect me and to be honest, in the big scheme of things it wouldn’t, but i knew i would be hurt by it. i liked my essays and i had done well in high school and that should count for something, shouldn’t it? i wasn’t ready to be told that i wasn’t enough. not that early, anyway. my stomach ached the entire day at school. i couldn’t stop shaking, i wore my lucky bracelet and when i spoke my words seemed like they came from someone else because i wasn’t really present, my heart and mind and soul were all in the future, floating somewhere around 5:00 p.m. with that email in my inbox. and i got home and tried to distract myself by talking to people and my mom bought me a hot chocolate from panera (my favorite, with the chocolate chip marshmallows) that i couldn’t stomach and she said “everyone loves you no matter what” and i said “i know” but i was still scared and uncertain and love is a cushion but it’s not a replacement. and 4:59 came faster than expected and i recorded my reaction video wearing a yale sweatshirt underneath my stanford sweatshirt (it’s a metaphor) and i didn’t put on any makeup. why bother? it’s not like anyone was going to see the video.

i began to record, my words in a rush, explaining that i had applied to stanford university restrictive early action class of 2018 and that at the moment i could see the unread email in my inbox that would, good news or bad, have an effect on the next four years of my life but goddammit i was just going to get it over with and look and i closed my eyes and on the inside of my eyelids i saw “we regret to inform you…” and my shaking fingers clicked the email and i saw my stanford ID number and underneath the word “congratulations” and i screamed. i literally screamed and my mouth went wide as a fish’s and i kept saying “no, no, no, no” because this was a mistake, they sent me the wrong email, i was going to get a follow-up saying they’d accidentally admitted severely unqualified applicants and sorry about the misunderstanding!! because who was i? i was seventeen years old, looked thirteen, really, with a messy room and split ends, someone who didn’t listen in calculus class and spent far too much time playing oregon trail and candy crush, someone who by a mixture of choice and circumstance spent most of her time alone and who didn’t even know what she wanted, really, so she never ended up doing much of anything. i said “this is a mistake.” i said “i’m not—” but that was a sentence i couldn’t finish because there were way too many options that could fill in that blank. i called my mom in and she screamed and grabbed the phone and called every relative i had and a couple of my friends had texted me so i texted them back, told them the good news, and right after my decision i put on my snapchat story, in tears, basically, a video of me half-screaming “I GOT INTO STANFORD” because at the time it didn’t seem obnoxious but rather me falling down the rabbit hole and desperately searching for a foothold. i needed to take this strange reality and share it with whoever i could just for affirmation that this is real life!! this is not a dream!! this is not a drill either, this is my life and i posted it on here and i was videochatting with some appblr friends after i’d told them the news and i think i was crying a little bit but god bless them for being my anchors and i posted a status on facebook an hour later after i hadn’t been rescinded and my two best friends took me out to see frozen and the entire time i kept checking my email because people were commenting and liking my facebook status and i felt this haze around me like nothing was real and i kept my stanford sweatshirt on and i didn’t take it off and i felt so happy i could burst into light and i could float away like a bird and i screenshotted that email and i still have the picture because i have never been happier, i don’t think.

there’s something to be said for a moment that completely sweeps you off your feet and i know it’s only a dumb college decision but it was the strangest reality check i have ever been a part of and all those shitty thoughts i have had about myself, things that could fill volumes of an encyclopedia, were things i had to rethink and you should never let anything determine your worth but there’s something so nice about validation, especially when you least expect it. and people who i thought were my safety nets were actually my trampolines, propelling me higher and higher and when i came back to school people were so lovely and saying “if it had to be anyone, i’m glad it was you” and “you deserve it more than anyone” and i was completely taken aback that such kind thoughts were directed towards me but it was so wonderful. and it was friday the 13th but it was the luckiest day of my life and i don’t think i’ll ever truly get over it, even though the sun always sets eventually and there are days when the clouds mar my sky and even though sometimes i feel like i’m treading water in an endless ocean, trying desperately to stay afloat i use that day as a raft because it reminds me that amazing things have happened, that i have contributed to something larger than me and that i am integral into shaping my own future and even though i know there will be highs and lows in the days to come i cannot ever forget a day like that. it amazes me more every time i think about it. i hold onto it because i can’t bear to let it go.

BTS Talks About How Far They’ve Come At Epilogue Concert

On May 7 and 8, BTS achieved their dream by performing on stage in front of tens of thousands of fans at the Olympic Park Gymnastics Arena for their “The Most Beautiful Moment in Life On Stage: Epilogue” concerts.

At their first concert on the night of May 7, the guys talked about how amazing the moment was for them. “I really didn’t know that we’d get here,” said Jimin. “This is a stage that everyone who’s just starting out dreams of. I’m happy and touched, while also a bit sad too. I’m feeling so many things right now that it’s hard to describe them with just one word.”

The group recently released their special album “Young Forever,” which wraps up their “The Most Beautiful Moment in Life” series. Leader Rap Monster said at the concert, “Although this moment is beautiful, I hope it won’t be the most beautiful moment. I hope that we’re just turning over the first page of a book called ‘The Most Beautiful Moment in Life.’”

In a video played at the concert, Jimin was shown saying, “Right now is the happiest time in my life so far,” while fellow member Suga added, “But I believe we’ll have an even brighter future.”

Rap Monster cried as he explained that he used to come to concerts at the Gymnastics Arena before their debut, and he’d dream of performing there himself, even though it seemed like it could never happen for him. He said, “We’ve arrived here at this point after a bumpy ride. Thank you for liking us, and for responding to us genuinely.”

Rap Monster also said to the crowd of fans holding up their light sticks, “I’ve thought a lot about when the start of ‘The Most Beautiful Moment in Life’ was for us. There are a lot of moments like when we debuted, when we received an award, or when we got first place for the first time, but I think that the start of it for us was when we first met all of you. Thank you for being together with us for the most beautiful moment.”

The guys naturally performed many of their hits, including “Run,” “Butterfly,” “Boy In Luv,” “Hip Hop Lover,” “Silver Spoon,” “Dope,” Ma City,” “Attack on Bangtan,” “Fun Boys,” and more.

They also performed tracks from their new special album for the first time, such as “Save Me,” “Young Forever,” and “Fire,” which Jin described as having “the most difficult choreography yet.” The members said they were touched to see their fans singing along to the new tracks, even though it’s only been five days since they were released.

Suga said that achieving their dream of performing at the Gymnastics Arena has only given him more aspirations for the future. He also added, “This is an honor that I won’t forget for the rest of my life.”

“When you feel you’re happy, it’s ‘the most beautiful moment in life,’” said Jimin. “‘The most beautiful moment in life’ for us will always be standing on stage in front of you all like we are now. For now, we’ve only just come to the Gymnastics Arena. We have more to show you in the future. We now have the strength to do even better things together in the future.”

BTS will soon be heading out on a tour of Asia in June that will make stops in Taiwan, China, Japan, the Philippines, and more.

The new music video for Cardinals by The Wonder Years hit me so fucking hard. I get that its kind of an unofficial sequel to Cul-de-sacs which makes it lyrically impressive and the reference to not being able to carry someone anymore and then carrying them in the video only increases the power of the song. 

But the part that hit me was something that probably wasn’t even meant to mean something. Just seeing the image of Dan carrying someone in tandem with the lyrics about not wanting to let someone down, knowing the devil someone’s been struggling with and how they’re not saviors if they can’t save their brothers. I don’t know, it just struck a cord. In a weird way, it was like Dan was carrying me in that video, carrying every single person who hold The Wonder Years dear to them. The Wonder Years mean so much to so many people and many fans (myself included) think of them as their person heroes, saviors if you will. I constantly credit this band as the reason why I’ve made it this far and essentially owe them my life because they kept me going at a time when I really didn’t want to be here anymore. And when I watched that video and saw Dan carrying that guy, I couldn’t help but think that that’s what he, Matt, Casey, Josh, Mike, and Nick have done for me time and time again; they have carried me at times when I couldn’t carry myself anymore. It was a strange, cathartic moment that just made me break down. I can’t really explain it, but it was just such a powerful moment. This band means everything to me and I don’t know where I would be without them.

Stealing Moments on Set with @simonchaudoir

To see more playful portraits, follow @simonchaudoir on Instagram.

The Instagram photos of a fellow film director first inspired Simon Chaudoir’s (@simonchaudoir) playful, sometimes macabre, portraits. “For a long time I had the image in my mind of myself lying on a studio floor having been crushed by a falling lamp,” explains Simon, who leads a harried, globetrotting life directing music videos and commercials. “It expressed something that I felt about my working life. I realized that Instagram gave me the platform to explore such images.“

With filmmaking equipment and backdrops at his disposal, Simon crafts jarring photos that draw from elements of Renaissance paintings, surrealist photography and the avant-garde. “Way, way, back I studied Fine Art,” says Simon of his university years. “This was the first time since then that I had the pleasure of producing something purely for my own pleasure and amusement.”

“Sometimes when I accept a job, knowing the equipment that’s going to be used and the people involved, I’ve already conceived what the picture of the day will be,” he says. But the photos themselves tend to come together quickly. “All my pictures are taken in snatched moments when I am working for other people,” he says, “lunch-breaks, lulls in shooting or when we wrap.”

anonymous asked:

It's sad you're so so young and very beautiful yet you strive for this ideal perfection. It is shown on your account, nice photos, bikini shots everywhere, your nice clothes, body, beaches, fruit. You really are trying to portray a perfect image of yourself. It's really sad. What do you do everyday? It seems as though all you do is play at the beach. Does anything get to you? Do you have emotions other than happiness? Be real, share with us

I go to school 5/7 days a week and study my ass off for hours after almost every day. But I’m not gonna whinge about that on Instagram or take photos at school. Anyone who is switched on and looks at my instagram will realise that I’m not always happy. It’s literally impossible for me to put my whole life on instagram and be “real” if that’s what real is for you. 2-4 photos a day that’s 2-4 MOMENTS out of 24hours !!!!!!! I mean common if you think that’s everything to my life then you really have to open your goddamn mind and think further. I’m not gonna post about sitting on the toilet or watching tv for hours or going to the doctor or lying in bed all day. That shit is boring. I like posting beautiful moments of my life - what is wrong with that ? Every one of my followers has the responsibility to know that those photos are not portraying my whole life. And you know what yes I have a fucking good life. There is absolutely nothing I have to complain about and to whinge about on instagram. BUT I even made a video explaining that I am not always happy/perfect so maybe check that out before attacking me… All I want to do is share positive thinking and beautiful moments. If you don’t like that or don’t want to see that - THEN YOU DON’T HAVE TO FOLLOW ME that’s the beauty of Instagram. You choose wether or not you want to see me. And my followers obviously want to.

Lowborn

Anberlin will release their last album, “Lowborn”, on June 23rd, 2014. This album brings Anberlin full circle as“Lowborn” will be released on Tooth & Nail, the band’s original label. Instead of recording the album together, the musicians did their parts with separate producers they each selected. Drums were recorded with Matt Goldman in Atlanta and later combined with bass and guitar in Lakeland, FL with Copeland’s Aaron Marsh. Vocals were recorded with the band’s longtime collaborator Aaron Sprinkle in Franklin, TN.

Consisting of Stephen Christian (vocals), Joseph Milligan (guitar), Devon Rexroat (bass), Nathan Young (drums), and Christian McAlhaney (guitar), Anberlin have been a band for 12 years. The rock group formed in central Florida in 2002 and have released six innovative and sincere albums that have affected fans in deeply emotional ways.“Lowborn” will be the band’s seventh and final full-length.

“Usually breakups happen quickly and suddenly, an implosion of sorts,” McAlhaney says. “What is unique about the end of Anberlin is that we discussed where people were at in their lives, what that meant for the band, and then made plans for the end on our own terms.” lowborn reflects true artistic freedom for the band, who felt liberated from any sort of expectation or pressure. “I wanted to enjoy the creative process one more time, with no restrictions, no one breathing down my neck for a single,” Christian says. “Just unadulterated creative freedom.”

The musicians started collecting new material at the end of last year. The idea was not to crank out as many songs as possible but to actually focus on crafting solidly good ideas that melded each musician’s individual tastes and influences. “We were really honest with each, probably more so than in the past,” Young says. “You have to come to a point where, with different opinions, there’s no right or wrong. There was a fearlessness which was really freeing and exciting for all of us. To just not have to think about anything else except what’s the best thing for the song.” Some of the album’s lyrics address the band’s end and history. “I know there are going to be a lot of questions as to why we decided to break up and I explain it all in the song ‘Atonement,’” Christian says. “And I want to make sure that the our fans and friends know that we will always remember them, and the moments spent with them were some of the greatest of my entire life. I tried to convey that in the song ‘Harbinger.’” Another track, “Stranger Ways,” first appeared in demo form in the band’s farewell video earlier this year.

Each musician has plans for the future after Anberlin, some concrete and some vague, some musical and some not. Those plans, in various ways, will be revealed in the coming months. For everyone, this is a celebration of what has been achieved rather than the mourning of a loss. “This is the end of an era of my life,” Rexroat says. “A long and great era. It also means a new beginning. It’s overwhelming to think about filling all my time with something new, but it’s also exciting.”

Anberlin will release their final album, “Lowborn”, on June 23rd, 2014 via Tooth & Nail Records, followed by a farewell world tour. Tour dates below with many more to be announced in both the U.S. and additional countries.
