Maybe one that reader and harry go out around London by Christmas time
to see the city lights and he shows everything to her cause she’s not
familiar with the city
The cool air sent a chill through your body and you wrapped your arms around yourself in an attempt to warm up.
“A bit,” you admit, shooting Harry a grin.
Without another word, he slipped the scarf from around his neck and wrapped it around your own, running his hands over your shoulders and then taking your hand in his own.
“We’re almost at the market,” he said, pointing ahead with his free hand.
You felt tiny butterflies of excitement rise in your stomach. This was going to be your first Christmas in London with Harry and, while you were excited that the two of you were going to be having your first, official Christmas as a couple, you were just as excited to see all the things that London in December had to offer. Harry had been talking everything up for weeks but told you that his descriptions were going to be no where near as good as the real thing would be.
You were especially excited to check out some of the various Christmas markets that were up around the city. You still had a few people to buy presents for and you knew that your family would appreciate some of the more handmade, special items that you could pick up here.
Harry was very patient, letting you wander around and chuckling each time you would grab his arm and point something out, excitedly. He had seen these many times before but he knew it was all new to you, so he let you take your time and see everything you wanted. Harry had no real time frame for the evening; there was only one, specific engagement that the two of you needed to make and he hadn’t told you about that yet.
The snow started coming down as you left the market and started walking through the streets with your bag of goodies. You didn’t see a lot of snow where you were from so this just added to your excitement.
“Harry, it’s snowing!” you squealed, tugging at his arm.
“It is, my love,” he replied, totally amused and enamored by your reaction, “You look very cute in the snow.”
You giggled a bit as Harry reached over to wipe a snowflake from your nose.
“I have a surprise for you,” he said, putting his arm around you and tucking you into his side.
“What is it?”
“What’s the one thing that you always told me you wanted to do in London?”
You stared at him for a moment and frowned. There were a lot of things you wanted to do but most of them had already…
Your eyes widened when it clicked in your mind and Harry laughed.
“Are we, really?” you asked, gripping his hand.
“I already bought us tickets. We have to be there at 7.”
You squealed and bounced up to give Harry a kiss.
“You like the surprise, my love?”
“Yes!! I love it!”
Ever since the first time you came to London to visit Harry, there was one thing that you had been raving about that you absolutely HAD to do, but had never had the chance. Leave it to Harry to organize such an event in the most romantic atmosphere and time of year.
You could see it long before you actually arrived at the entrance. You couldn’t help but be impatient while you waited for the line to move. Harry presented your tickets and the attendant showed you and Harry into your compartment.
Your mouth dropped as soon as you stepped inside. Not only did you have the space all to yourself, but Harry had apparently gone out of his way to have the entire thing adorned with decorations and lights and a bottle of wine, which sat on the small table.
“You like it?” he whispered, wrapping his arms around your waist from behind and resting his chin in your shoulder.
“This is amazing,” you answered, feeling tears start to well up in your eyes, “Thank you.”
“Anything for you.”
He kissed your cheek and then helped you shrug off your jacket.
“Normal rides are 30 minutes, but I got us an hour,” Harry explained, popping open the cork on the wine, “Knew how much you wanted to take a ride so I figured I’d make it as special as you are.”
You couldn’t help but stare out the window in front of you - this giant wheel that was giving you a complete overview of the entire city as the snow continued to fall was probably the most romantic and amazing thing that you had ever done. Harry came up behind you and handed you a glass of wine before pressing a kiss to your neck.
“I love you,” he said, “You know that?”
“I love you, too,” you replied, leaning back against his chest.
The hour went by far too fast. You weren’t sure if you wanted to spend the time looking out the window or kissing Harry as much as you could for being so incredible, so you settled for a good mixture of both, wondering how you had gotten so lucky to have someone as thoughtful as Harry in your life
First artRAVE ARTPOP Zone (my long detailed experience)
Okay… so I was part of the first group to experience the ARTPOP Zone / Gaga Meet and Greet at artRAVE. I would probably write this for my own memorabilia but I know lots of fans would like to know how things worked and what went down, especially fans with the ARTPOP Zone package who have no idea what to expect, so I’m going to share this with you all. I’m about to go into some major detail, so prepare yourself. If you want photos of the actual concert there are plenty online that other fans took; I didn’t use my phone during the concert because I like to experience my concerts technology-free. (I did get a professional photograph taken with her as a part of the VIP package; that won’t be emailed to me for a couple more days).
I was nervous the entire day of the concert. I couldn’t eat. I had been wavering between excitement and nervousness all day but I kept trying to push any stressful feelings out of my mind because… it’s a fucking concert it’s supposed to be fun. If I hadn’t had very specific things I wanted to say to Gaga, I think the stress would’ve been a lot less, but because of how important this was to me and because I didn’t know what to expect, it was hard. But when I got to the venue and saw all the fans with their extravagant outfits and the anti-gay Jesus-loving protestors waving their HOMO SEX IS A SIN signs, the stress seemed to wash away. I started to tear up because… this is going to sound really cheesy… I felt like I was home. Two boys went over and made out next to the protestors which I feel like is such a great Gaga-fan moment. I would’ve made for a beautiful photo. It felt like no one was offended by the protestors; everyone was making a joke out of them. Classic Gaga spirit. (I saw a photo online where someone covered up the S in SIN with their hand so it looked like it said HOMO SEX IS IN).
Then there was the VIP line. Tickets say we’re let in at 6:30 but it’s more like 7. We got our tickets in these little envelopes with our names and sparkly star stickers on them. We had to sign our name with our emails and a description of our outfit so they could recognize us for the meet and greet and knew where to send our personal photograph with Gaga. There was one girl, Cynthia, who I found online that had the same ticket as myself that I met up with in the VIP line, and after we got our tickets we went to the merch table, and after that went to the before-show lounge with free food, tables, chairs, a bar, a glitter tattoo booth, and a balcony area.
I couldn’t eat so Cynthia and I went straight to our seats (we were escorted to our seats by the staff). Myself, Cynthia, and another monster Adrian were the first people in the ARTPOP Zone. We had a personal bar (the drinks were free) and the view of the stage and the catwalk were breathtaking. For those of you concerned about the number of your seat for ARTPOP Zone – it’s random. Number one seat doesn’t get the first row of seats. The seating doesn’t matter because everyone is standing the entire time anyways. It’s very spacious. Lady Starlight came out and DJed for quite a while. Eventually everyone was in the ARTPOP zone and in the midst of Starlight performing, in come Cynthia and Joe and Taylor (for ppl who don’t know, Cynthia and Joe are her parents and Taylor is her boyfriend). This was completely unexpected and very, very fucking cool. Of course a bit of a crowd started to form around them. Some people took photos with Taylor. I didn’t approach any of them because I didn’t want to bother them. Taylor left shortly after he arrived, but Cynthia and Joe stayed in the ARTPOP Zone the entire concert. Joe was very quiet and off by himself, occasionally taking a photo with someone. Cynthia doesn’t take photos but she was very friendly and chatting with fans.
Now for one of the highlights… when the concert began and Gaga started to sing ARTPOP, I started crying on cue because of how overwhelming and surreal the entire moment was, and Cynthia was standing right next to me as this happened, so she turned and saw me crying and hugged me. Gaga’s mom hugged me while I cried. (Later on I found someone in ARTPOP zone, Waldo, took a video of this exact moment… I found it on twitter with the title “Cythina hugs a little monster who was crying” … !!!). That was obviously one of the best moments of the night. Other concert highlights for me were when she performed Born This Way at the piano a few fucking feet away from me (cried all the way through), when she got naked / did a costume change singing her unreleased song Ratchet, and when she sang Party Nauseous. The whole show was a blur for the most part. I really feel like I need to re-watch videos online to really process everything. I barely ever looked at the main stage or the big screen because I was watching her the whole time. She spent a lot of time on the catwalk which is practically right there in front of the ARTPOP Zone. I also want to mention that Cynthia, Gaga’s mom, was recording videos and taking pictures for a good portion of the show. I can’t imagine what it’s like for them seeing their little girl sing her songs and create this crazy rave show. She was obviously very proud and excited. I noticed Taylor came back into the ARTPOP Zone for Gypsy, or maybe he came back earlier but I just didn’t notice him. (After Gaga sang the line “And then he asked me, he said baby, why do we love each other” she yelled out “LOVE YOU T”).
When the show ended we had to stay in the ARTPOP Zone and wait to be escorted backstage. The room for the meet and greet had a curtain in the center; the side that you see when you walk into the room is where the personal photograph was to be taken … there was an extremely large backdrop of the ARTPOP cover for the photo. On the other side of the curtain there were tables and tall stools and a bar. We were instructed to turn off our phones for the meet and greet and that she would be there soon. People asked questions about signing autographs and how long we’d get to be with her. They told us the time was unlimited. So maybe a little around 8 minutes or so go by, we’re all standing around, and Gaga pops out from behind the curtain and says “I did another costume change!” She was wearing this sparkly silver jacket with shoulder pads, a crown of pink pacifiers, black sunglasses, something pink with long sleeves underneath the jacket, and a long brown wig. She pulled out one of the stools and sat down and asked us how we liked the show. Someone asked Gaga what her favorite part of the show was, or how she liked it, and she said something to the effect of “I can’t remember anything, it’s a blur” - same way I felt. Someone said that they were wondering how she was going to pull off the rave theme but that it was done perfectly, and she said very seriously, “oh yeah, it’s a full on rave”. Cynthia, the girl I talked about earlier, hand painted a leather jacket of all ARTPOP themed Gaga things like the song titles and different Gaga montages. Gaga said she would wear it but that if she wanted to keep it she’d sign it, which she did. Someone else gave her a gift that I’m not quite sure what it was … it was a very fancy box that looked like it was hand-done with the Applause face on it, with some things inside of it. When she saw it her jaw dropped and she opened it slowly and said “this is an art-piece”, to which the person giving it to her said it was and that they worked on it for 6 weeks. She loved it. She was moving her hands all over it and talking about how it looked and how it was made. People asked her to sign some things. One person, Waldo, had a monster paw tattoo which she said she loved and wanted herself. This particular person I remember told me that this was his 11th Gaga show. He had a bunch of Gaga tattoos. He had a metal style tribute t-shirt for a monster named Stephanie who passed recently. Gaga commented that she loved the metal style of the shirt and got up to look at it and touch it. Waldo started to cry as her told her about Stephanie. She hugged him and asked how old Stephanie was (33 yrs old) and spoke to him and another girl about how hard it is when someone close to you dies. Some people asked about her touring to Mexico, and she said probably not. She wants this tour to be shorter because she says after touring for six months you start to get worn down. Someone said “you know you make this world a better place, right?” and she said “that’s all I want. I want to be remembered for what we’ve (her fans and herself) have created together.” Someone asked her if she would sing for us, to which she responded right away very seriously “what would you like me to sing?” and quite a few people called out Gypsy. As she started to sing we all chimed in singing it together. I started to cry and some monsters hugged me and Gaga looked straight at me. After she sang a bit of it she said, “you guys are all hippies like me, this is what my friends and I do when we’re just hanging out – we sing songs together.” It’s hard to gauge how much time passed when she spoke to us but the other monsters I was with said about 20 minutes.
After she spoke to us as a group it was time for the personal photograph, so we had to get in a single file line behind the curtain. I noticed it was going semi-fast and I had quite a few specific things I wanted to say, so I got in the back of the line so I didn’t have to worry about rushing to remember everything while others waited. Some of the monsters after the show said they got 1-2 minutes of time with her at the personal photo. While I was waiting my heart started to beat in my chest and I felt kind of light-headed. Someone on the staff got me a water and everyone who noticed me told me not to be nervous (the nervousness seemed involuntary, I was only trying to remember everything I wanted to say). Eventually it was my turn and I walked through the curtain. I might’ve said “hi Gaga” or something, but the first thing I did was hug her. I put up my hand to the camera man and said “I have some things I want to say before the photo”, then turned to Gaga and said “I’ve been thinking about this moment ever since I got my ticket in December and how I want this moment to be not only for myself but for you. Because I don’t want to make you feel like an idol, I want to make you feel like a friend.” She made a face at me like she was touched, and then my mind blanked. I put my hands on my head and said, “oh no, I don’t want to blank out!”, and she said, “that’s okay, let’s take the picture and maybe you’ll remember afterward.” So we took the picture. I told her about hearing Just Dance on the radio for the first time in 2008 and going home and watching all her interviews, and how I’ve followed her ever since. I told her I feel like I have a spiritual connection with her, to which she said, “we do”. I told her that I know how vulnerable she had to be to make ARTPOP, and she responded with, “yeah, it was hard,” and I went on to talk about her saying at Swinefest that she knew in order to be closer to her fans she had to be more open with us, and then at SXSW when she talked about Swine being about rape and how proud of her I was. I told her to never stop being open with fans because we’re always going to be there for her and there’s nothing she could do that could change that. She got a look on her face and said, “I’m so glad I met you,” and then hugged me (!!!!!!!!). She then offered to sign my jeans, to which I obviously said yes (she signed her name). At one point she commented on my outfit and said that I looked great. I was the last person to speak with her, and as she turned to leave, I called out “oh, one more thing!” and told her about Maria Mongiardo (a monster who was supposed to go backstage at the BTWB but didn’t after the tour was canceled) and gave her her information. Lane, her manager, was there and I told her that she knew who I was referring to, and Lane goes, “oh, Maria?” Gaga made a pouting face when I told her Maria didn’t get to go backstage, and put out her hand for the paper with her info. Then she left! We were all escorted out of the venue after that.
One more really cool thing happened. My boyfriend works as a local stagehand – he sets up concert stages for whoever comes to the arenas in Miami or Ft. Lauderdale – but for this show he was assigned to set up and take down her dressing room. After the show my boyfriend was waiting outside the dressing room for her to leave, and she walked out, turned to him and the other stagehand with him, looked him straight in the eye and said, “thank you for all your hard work,” and hugged him. My boyfriend has never been thanked, or even acknowledged by an artist before, and he’s set up for people like Justin Timberlake, Madonna, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, etc. Anyone! Gaga is wonderful.
That is all! The night was magical. Everything was like a dream. I know this was written sort of straight-forward, I just wanted to get it all down with as many details as possible. If you have any questions, ask away.

((There is smut. Like my first time writing smut so be nice. And you should listen to galantis you and I while reading this because it inspired me to do this. I hope you like this!!))
For weeks me and (Y/F/N) planned this. For our senior trip we decided to go to Australia. We wanted to do something fun so we decided why not go to the beach and go to one of their best rave concerts. We were about to head out when I asked (Y/F/N/) if she had the tickets.
“Yes, (Y/N),” she giggled. Probably a little too tipsy from our pre-game.
“Alright lets head out,” I said. (Y/F/N) cheered after me as we left the hotel.
We were walking up the stadium to enter the rave and that’s when I felt the rush. I always loved the feeling of the bass thumping inside my body as I moved to the music.
My friend, (Y/F/N/), turned towards me and gave me a smile. Knowing I was ready for this.
“You coming (Y/N)?”
“Duh,” I said and I took her hand as we went to the first act.
It was already five hours into the rave and I was sweating and little too drunk. Galantis came on stage and preformed their last song “You and I”
“Yes oh my god I love this song,” I yelled.
A boy with black hair and the most amazing eyes nudged me and yelled in my ear.
“You love this song too,” He asked with the most amazing smile on his face.
“Of course! How could you not?”
We both started to sing to the song and danced together. (Y/F/N) gave me a knowing look. She just laughed and danced with a tall blonde boy. I just guessed that it was his friend. Once Galantis left i started to get hungry. I mean it was already 12 am.
“Hey wanna go get something to eat with (Y/F/N) and I? I mean she looks busy with your friend as well.”
He looked over to his friend and laughed.
“Yeah. My names Michael by the way,” extending his hand for me to shake. I smiled and shook his hand.
“(Y/N),” I said smiling.
We soon left the arena and I started tripping over his large feet.
“I’m sorry,” I giggled. He said nothing, and put his arm over my waist to steady me. I blushed and could feel the butterfly’s in my stomach.
“Waffle house?” I suggested. It was the closest thing to our hotel.
We ate there and laughed at each other throwing bits of waffles at each other. Turns out Michael’s friend name was Luke, and Luke was infatuated with (Y/F/N). Then again (Y/F/N) liked Luke a little bit too much as well.
“(Y/N) can we go back to the hotel please? I wanna show Luke something,” (Y/F/N) giggled.
“Oh. Yeah okay we can go.”
We got up and left. Michael and I stayed back to watch them to make sure they could at least last till we got to the hotel. When we got inside the hotel Luke and (Y/F/N) didn’t even make it to the bad. It had to be the couch.
“You can come with me to the bedroom,” I said to Michael.
I closed the door so that we both didn’t have to hear their moans. We both sat on the bed and laughed awkwardly.
“Your friend seems nice”
I smiled and laughed a little. “Yeah she is”
I looked up at Michel, and saw him looking at my lips. I couldn’t help it maybe it was me just being a little bit drunk, or maybe it was me thinking damn hes hot. I got on top of him and we started making out. He grabbed my ass, and I started to grind on him.
Michael, moaned and I smirked. I need to hear that again. I grinded down a little bit harder this time and he let out a loud groan. He soon flipped us over, and his mouth was so close to mine I wanted to kiss him again. I moved up to kiss him, but he backed away smirking.
“Michael,” I whined.
“What do you need princess” I moaned at his calling me that.
“I need… just please touch me,” I begged Michael.
He started to kiss my cheeks and then took off my shirt. He was about to take off my bra when he looked at me with his glowing eyes.
“Are you sure?” He is so sweet I just melted.
I nodded and then he took off my shorts and my bra. He moaned at the sight of my breasts. He started to kitten lick at one of my nipples and I moaned. I bucked my hips up trying to get any friction I could. He grabbed my hips and pushed them down.
“Where do you need me?”
“Michael, please,” I whined.
Michael, started to move his hands down my stomach and then started to rub circles on my lower abdomen.
“Here?” Michael asked.
He then moved his hands lower and went under my underwear and finally got to the place I needed him the most. I gasped, and moved my hips up again. Once again he pushed them down. he ripped off my underwear and dove his tongue right into me. I grabbed his hair and tugged on it and whined screaming for him to go faster. His fingers moved inside of me and I gasped and tugged his hair which made him moan. I moaned at the vibrations.
“Mikey, I’m so so close don’t stop please,” I looked down and he was already looking up at me and winked. That set me off the edge. Once I was done I needed him in my moth. I wanted to taste him so bad. I grabbed at his jeans and pulled them down. He played down, and I went up to kiss him and we both smiled into it. He started to take off his shirt while I started to kiss down his chest and took off his jeans. Once I got to his boxers my breath hitched. Shit hes really big.
I pulled down his boxers and his dick sprung free and hit his chest which made him moan. I got up and went to lick up his cock slowly.He grabbed onto my hair and tugged it a little. I slowly started to take all of him in my mouth but then he bucked his hips up which made me gag a little. I looked up at him, and he smiled at me and moaned again.
“Such a good girl. So fucking good. Just for me right,” Michael said.
I moaned and nodded which made him make a loud groan. He went fast and I could tell he was close.
“Baby girl please keep going so close”
I bobbed my head faster, and then seconds later he was coming in my mouth. Once he was done I swallowed it which made him smile.
“come on. Lets get some sleep beautiful,” Michael said. I moved up to him and he cuddled me from behind. Somehow I knew that this wasn’t gonna be just a one night stand. I feel asleep with a smile with on my lips.
((IM SORRY IF THIS SUCKED. I was really excited to do this with my new computer!Tell me what you thought!))
