warped-'12

Up until the 1940s, teenagers weren’t really a thing. We don’t mean that people used to time-warp from age 12 to 20. We mean that the cultural concept – this ethereal, not-quite-child-yet-not-quite-adult period in human development – simply wasn’t considered to exist prior to the Great Depression. Up until then, you were either a child or you were an adult.

That all changed with a single spread in the December 1944 issue of Life.

In a historic attempt to quantify this “new” American youth phenomenon, Life excitedly told of the “teen-age” girl – specifically the white, middle-class teen-age girl.

The expose then went on to paint a picture of American teenagers as we all know them from every teen comedy ever, from their crippling obsession with phones, to their insistence on playing their ding-danged music too loud, to their tendency to be completely bored with just, like, everything.

Fast forward several years, and the word “teenager” had officially entered the national lexicon, thereby cementing John Hughes’ future career and instilling in all of us the firm belief that everyone else’s teenage years were way better than our own.

              You stared at the many blueprints and plans that lay before you, filling up the entirety of the corner desk in your apartment. So many years of work, denied by Starfleet time and time again. You stared at the wilted pages, pages that had taken up so much of your time and energy. You’d hoped to change Starfleet, to make their ships stronger and better. But Starfleet was just another company, only dedicated to making money. You slammed your hands on the table, some of the papers flew off the desk. Watching the papers fall gave you an odd sense of satisfaction, watching your failures fall to the floor. You swiped the rest off the desk, and watched the papers flutter out of sight.

Hey can you do one like y.n is in a band too but is on tour and comes and surprises jack on atl’s tour bus and jack gets rid of the guys then smut lmao

AN  Hey guys, it’s been awhile since I’ve done smut so woo! Also I’m having really bad Jack feels right about now and it’s hindering my life at this moment. I’m just so proud of these guys, like really and I’m happy that they’re happy and yeah. Okay done rambling for now, enjoy the smut. I probably should’ve named the band but I suck at coming up with names so I decided not to. Also! The conversation is just between you and Jack.

Warning: Smut

Your POV

Lying on the beds of tour buses gets tiring and really painful. Especially this far from home. I’m in California right now and Jack is in Europe. It hurt to be this far away from him, we’re best friends. I was texting him in my bunk when my bandmate came by and sat on me.

“Ouch, Thane, why are you sitting on me?” I stuck my tongue out at him. Thane was the singer of the band. There was me, the bass, Thane, lead singer and rhythm guitar, Atticus, lead guitar, and Jeff, the drummer. We were pretty tight and right now we were on Warped tour. 

“Because it’s fun and I like to annoy you,” Thane laughed as he bounced up and down. “What’re you doing anyway?”

unfortunately whenever i think about all time low i’m also plagued with war flashbacks from 2012 bandom, warped tour ‘12, fuckign taylex and the several months of hysteria before dont panic came out. oh and the peak of jalex fanfic dont forget that

I just wanted to repost this with a story. 

After the car accident that made me lose my leg, Taking Back Sunday was contacted by one of my close friends, who informed them of how much I loved them. 

Taking Back Sunday has been my favorite band for almost a decade. They are hands down, the most consistent thing I have had in my life. I could always turn to them whenever I needed comfort, something to relate too, something to jam and dance around my room too, something to soothe nightmares, something to jam too on long drives, etc. 

With that information, let me formally tell the story for the first time on Tumblr.

Also, before I do, a BIG thank you to Michaela for bringing this to my attention. (I got to meet her and Shuffle at this Warped Tour too, and that also meant a lot to me)
