heyletsescape  asked:

how does the songwriting proces happen? do you begin with a melody or lyrics first? and what inspires you to write the songs you write?

Normally starts with a conversation about a song that we love and why we love it. Then we kind of copy it and make our own version of it - whether we copy the musicality or the sentiment behind it differs. George will create something then present it to us and we go from there. Lyrics very rarely are written for specific songs - at least until very late. I just write randomly and then appropriate the lyrics to the songs later 

Burn (from Laurens’ viewpoint)

I saved every letter you wrote me

From the moment I read them

I knew you were mine

You said you were mine

I thought you were mine

Do you know how delighted I was

When I saw your first letter arrive?

I thought

“I’ll love this man forevermore”

Your affections brought me to life

You and your words flooded my senses

Your sentences left me defenseless

You built me palaces out of paragraphs

You built cathedrals

From that moment when I first saw your face

I knew I’d be helpless before you

And, God, I was

But I cannot deny

That when you said you’d be mine

The world seemed to



And every day our feelings grew

I’d pay any price, I though

Just to gaze at your face

I’d endure all the shame, I would give you my life

Do you know what my father would say

If he heard what we’d done

He’d say

“You must pray to God to save you

Now gather your belongings and run.”

Yes, I realize I never can be with you

But the weight of these feelings that I possess,

Can’t be abandoned despite how hard I try

I’m sorry I loved you

You, you, you…

I’m erasing myself from the narrative

Please know it’s the only cure for this disease we’ve

Contracted that plagues both our hearts

I’ll give up the part

Of my soul that you burned

But my love, it still burns

I gave you a piece of my heart

I saved you a place in my bed

Now those feelings are gone and they’re dead

I’ll burn all the memories

Burn all the letters that might have condemned you

You’ll forfeit all rights to my heart

You’ll forfeit the place in our bed

Get a wife and love her instead

Just leave me the memories

Of when you were mine

Or else I might burn

i can’t tell if im getting better or worse. see, the aching in my heart has stopped but now my hands just cannot stop shaking. ive stopped crying everyday but now i just end up throwing things at the wall and hurting myself. my hands are rubbed raw from hanging onto the last remains of you, my legs are burning from all the running away i seem to do, and my soul is so goddamn tired. i can’t sleep it out because even in my sleep, i think of you and what i had hoped we could’ve been. i can’t stop burning my skin in the shower, i can’t stop hoping you’ll beg for me not to let go of you. i can’t stop holding on and jesus fuck more than anything, i want to let go but my hands have only ever know how to hold on as tight as possible. // tell me to let go, make this easier for me, stop making me want to hold on. i want to fucking let go.

mdblanchard  asked:

Hi Sarah! I've been reading (and loving) a lot of your fic lately. Could I request a rucas one shot/drabble thing? I just want something based on the song 'T-Shirt' by Thomas Rhett -- and preferably something that is as fluffy and fun as the song :) Thanks in advance, if you find the time!!

Hi!! So sorry this took so long!! Also thank you for the request and the compliment!! ;) 

Okay, so I decided just to pick out a set of lyrics from the song, instead of writing about the song as a whole, I hope that’s okay. Here are the lyrics I chose:

Next thing I know you were wearing my
T-Shirt right there
Your hair messed up like a Guns-N-Roses video
Ooh ooh so hot
Still got it up in my head, you were moving around in the TV light
I ain’t ever seen anything like, your dress, my floor, the way you wore, my my T-Shirt

Song: T-Shirt by Thomas Rhett 

Note: This takes place when they are right out of college or maybe mid-twenties or something. Lucas is living in Texas and Riley is visiting for his parents’ anniversary party. Also, I’ve linked the song in the part of the fic where they’re dancing so if you want to listen along, there you go! Warning, clicking the link will take you away from the current page so if you just want to look it up in a different tab yourself, that works too ;) 

“Are you sure you’re okay?” Lucas called to Riley from the bedroom of his tiny Austin apartment. She was across the hall in his bathroom, scrubbing the stain, which was the result of an extremely unfortunate mishap that occurred that night at dinner, out of her beautiful white dress. 

“Yes, Lucas,” Riley assured him, her voice coming out slightly muffled through the closed door. “I’m used to tripping and falling into things - kinda comes with the territory of being as clumsy as I am.”

“Yeah, but you’ve never fallen into a 6 tiered cake before,” Lucas pointed out, picking up the signed baseball on his nightstand and tossing it in the air. “That one was new even for you. Not to mention everyone else at my parents’ anniversary party.”

“About that,” Riley paused for a moment as she rummaged for something in one of his bathroom cabinets. “On a scale of one to ‘ban me from ever stepping foot in their house ever again’ are they mad about that?”

“I’d say a solid six,” Lucas told her, leaning back against his bed frame as he waited for Riley to finish up in the bathroom.

“I’ll take it,” Riley turned the knob on the door and stepped into the bedroom, still holding her soiled dress in one hand and a wet towel in the other. “Okay, I think I’ve gotten all the frosting out of my hair. But I’m about to call the dress a goner. Tell me - why did your parents have to have purple icing on their cake?”

“Because purple is…”

Lucas stopped talking. He stopped thinking. He stopped breathing. The baseball dropped to the floor and bounced it’s way to the other side of the room, but Lucas didn’t notice. The only thing he could focus on was the girl standing in front of him with nothing on but his favorite Knicks t-shirt.

“What?” Riley grabbed at her face, searching for anything that might make him stare at her like that. “Do I still have cake on my face? I thought I got it all, but…”

“Riley Matthews, get over here right now,” Lucas muttered quickly, unsure of whether or not he was forming any coherent sentences. Riley slowly took a few steps to stand in front of him, leaving Lucas completely mesmerized. “You’re wearing my t-shirt.”

“Sorry, do you mind? I thought I had a spare set of clothes somewhere in my car, but-” Riley pulled at the hem of the shirt, making it come down just above her knees and Lucas took a step closer to fill the gap between them.

“Not only do I not mind, but I highly suggest that you wear my t-shirts everyday, all the time, for the rest of forever,” Lucas’ voice was insistent, and Riley couldn’t help but blush at the way he was looking at her.

“You know, I’m not so sure that’s socially acceptable around here,” Riley joked, and Lucas put one hand on her waist to gently pull her closer.

“I suggest you kiss me, right now,” Lucas whispered, leaning forward to meet his lips with hers. Just as Lucas’ nose grazed the tip of Riley’s, and their lips hovered over one another, the music that was playing softly in the background picked up and Riley pulled away quickly.

“Ooh, this is my favorite song!” Riley hurried over to turn up the music, dropping her dress to the floor and moving her hips this way and that as she found the beat. “Dance with me, Lucas!”

“You’ve seen me dance, before,” Lucas smirked, watching as she threw her arms in the air and waved them back and forth. “I think I’ll just stand back here and watch you.”

Lucas took in the way she threw her hair around, sticky and knotted from the icing, to the beat of the music. It was such a mess, but it suited her, Lucas thought. Riley moved in front of the TV, and she picked up her movement as the silent program flickered across the screen in the darkness.

“Come on, Lucas!” Riley shouted over the music, as she did a shoulder shimmy move that made Lucas burst into laughter.

Slowly, he took a few steps to join her in front of the TV, bobbing his head to the music. Riley reached for his hands and they jumped up and down to the beat, laughing like they had just heard the funniest joke in the world. 

“You know Lucas,” Riley said in between breaths. “You really do have zero rhythm.”

“I told you,” Lucas laughed, keeping one hand on her arm and the other on her waist as the song came to an end.

Riley draped either arm over Lucas’ shoulders, resting her head gently on his chest as they swayed to the soft hum of the air conditioner. 

“God, you’re beautiful,” Lucas breathed, and Riley lifted her head to meet his gaze.

“I’m a mess,” Riley giggled, gesturing to her hair and his ratty old t-shirt she was wearing.

“A beautiful mess,” Lucas whispered, resting his forehead against hers and breathing in deep. “Who can really rock an oversized t-shirt.” Riley and Lucas both smiled at this, as he finally met his lips with hers.

As the music picked back up again, they backed away from each other and danced - the girl who trips and falls into cakes and the boy with absolutely no rhythm - until the sun started to shine in through the curtains. They took the early signs of morning as the cue to stop and fall face first onto the bed, completely exhausted. As Lucas drifted off to sleep, Riley snuggled up in Lucas’ t-shirt, silently thanking herself for being so clumsy.

a few things I've noticed about nonbinary people

Nonbinary people say they aren’t looking for attention, but post stuff like this along with their selfies: 

and also beg for reblogs/likes either in the tags, or in the caption. (this is not an exaggeration, just go through some of the nonbinary tags) 

They also say it isn’t a costume, or a fashion statement, when SO MANY of them dress up in bold outfits, with thick makeup, piercings, dyed hair, big shoes, etc. Seriously, look through the ‘nonbinarynotandrogynous’ tag, and you’ll see just how many people dress to clearly make a statement. 

I also noticed that they act the same. Most of them do the same poses in their pictures, often with a peace sign (✌🏼). They also caption their pictures with either lyrics from a Halsey or Twenty One Pilots song, or they caption the pic with stuff like ‘space babe’ or something like that. They often have similar themes on their blogs. They’re also easily offended, but that’s another story. 

There are all DFAB, or just plain girls. If they are DMAB (guys), they’re the hyper SJW type. 

They’re also between the ages of 13-24, but I have seen people in their 30′s claiming to be ‘nonbinary’, which is pathetic tbh. This proves to me that this is a teenager thing. 

They’re also interested in the same thing: fandoms, butting their heads into LGBT spaces, indie music, making up labels, claiming oppression, bands, etc. 

They all use the same words (smol, v cute, gay, cinnamon bun, and much more) 

In conclusion, nonbinary is nothing but a fad, a trend, a fashion statement, a cry for attention, and that only teenage girls believe in it. 

(if you get offended by this, you’re proving my point that nonbinary people are easily offended. It’s just my opinion, dude. It’s not like I’m hurting anyone). 

We’ll Get Along Just Fine (Steve Rogers x Reader)

A/N: I have never written something like this in two hours. Never. And besides being impressed with the time I’m sitting here with tears in my eyes with how much I love it. It’s not often I’ll tell you if I loved specifically what I wrote but this…I’m in love with it. @prancing-through-the-rain thank you for this and I changed it a bit if only because that’s where my writing took me. And did you know? All of my best Steve oneshots were written to bandstand/popular jazz standards. I have no idea what it is but it really just brings out my best I think. Also the title is an altered lyric from a song I was listening to and it’s meant to mean “we’ll come through this okay” if you’re familiar with how people spoke back then rather than “we’ll get along well”. If you know what I mean. @winterwolf57

Words: 1 818

Prompt: “ Idea for a Cap imagine where the reader is a SHIELD nurse when Steve first wakes up after being frozen and tries to calm him down while he’s freaking out, confused, and maybe he mildly hurts her, thinking that she’s HYDRA, then is sorry later?”

You walked brusquely down the hall, your feet barely even having the time to touch the ground with how quickly the armed guards who surrounded you were walking. Out of the blue you were whisked away from your job at the hospital. At first you were alarmed – after all you had no idea if you were being kidnapped or not. It was only when the director of your hospital had had a quick talk with the head of the nondescript group of guards that your mind was put slightly at ease.

That was not to say that the drive had been pleasant either. Sitting in an armoured, bulletproof vehicle that you could not even see out of due to the heavy tinted windows, much less move an inch without moving into the space of the burly men seated on either side of you was not your idea of a day off at all.

Nevertheless you reached the office – or an office, there was no name on the door- you assumed would inform you of why your routine had been so rudely interrupted.

Staring out of a large and curtainless window was a tall dark skinned man dressed all in leather.

“Thank you agents. You are dismissed.” The deep baritone voice commanded and he turned around to show his one eye covered with an eye patch.

“Nurse (L/n), I’m sure you’re wondering why I have called you here.” The intimidating man addressed you, looking you up and down as if confirming something for himself.

It was not as if he exactly called, you thought to yourself. “Yes I am…Mr?” you answered instead and trailed off expectantly.

“Director Nicholas J Fury of the Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate or as its better known as: S.H.I.E.L.D. You have come most highly recommended to me from your hospitals director. Tell me (F/n), you have quite a background with rehabilitation and quite a patient recovery rate – both physical and emotional- correct?” it was as if the man had memorized your entire career up until the point you were standing in front of him. You were both flattered and slightly put off to be honest.

“Yes sir. That is correct.” You answered simply, you knew there would be no need to go into detail.

“I confirmed this because I would like for you to be a full time assistant to a very high profile patient. You may have heard in the news nurse that Captain America or Steve Rogers, was found in the ice and as such has been in a coma recovering after ‘defrosting’. As of now, to him at least, it is still the final days of World War II in 1945. Your job is to help him transition, psychologically, to our current time. Do you accept?” Director Fury explained with a frown on his face, you could tell that the situation weighed heavily on him.

On the other hand, excitement coursed through your veins. Captain America was a national icon and a role model, loved by all around the world. He was a man you admired long before you had even learned about him in History class. You watched countless documentaries about him and even when you studied to become a nurse, his upright morals and principals were something you used as a guide even to this day.

“I do sir.” You felt a little embarrassed at how quickly you had answered but the thought of doing something for this great man who had done so much for the country you loved, it was impossible to refuse.

“Good. Now, starting from today, you will be escorted to a changing room where you will be dressed as a nurse from the 1940s. You will see the room we have him in is exactly the same so as to ease him into it. Good luck Nurse (L/n).” the director informed you before pressing a button and the same guards, or agents as you now assumed, came into escort you.

“Thank you Director. I won’t let you down.” You replied with perhaps more enthusiasm than you could ever have predicted coming out of a conversation with a man like Director Fury.

Baby, this is what you came for
Lightning strikes every time she moves
And everybody’s watching her
But she’s looking at you, oh, oh

2. Sorry - Beyonce

Me and my ladies sip my d'ussé cups
I don’t give a fuck chucking my deuces up
Suck on my balls pause
I had enough
I ain’t thinking ‘bout you
I ain’t thinking 'bout

3. Video Games - Lana Del Ray

It’s you, it’s you, it’s all for you
Everything I do
I tell you all the time
Heaven is a place on earth with you
Tell me all the things you wanna do
I heard that you like the bad girls
Honey, is that true?
It’s better than I ever even knew
They say that the world was built for two
Only worth living if somebody is loving you
Baby, now you do

4. King Kunta - Kendrick Lemar

Bitch where you when I was walkin’?
Now I run the game got the whole world talkin’, King Kunta
Everybody wanna cut the legs off him, Kunta
Black man taking no losses
Bitch where you when I was walkin’?
Now I run the game, got the whole world talkin’, King Kunta
Everybody wanna cut the legs off him

5. Monster- Kanye West

I don’t give a F-U-C-K
forget barbie fuck Nicki she’s fake
she’s on a diet but her pockets eating cheese cake
and I’ll say Bride of Chucky is child’s play
just killed another career it’s a mild day

6. Everlong - Foo Fighters

And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you
You gotta promise not to stop when I say when she sang

7. The Seed (2.0)- The Roots

Knocked up 9 months ago
And what she gonna have she don’t know
She want neo-soul, this hip-hop is old
She don’t want no rock'n'roll
She want platinum or ice or gold
She want a whole lot of somethin’ to fold
If you a obstacle she just drop ya cold
'cause one monkey don’t stop the show
Little Mary is bad

8. Little Black Submarines - The Black Keys

Oh can it be
The voices calling me
They get lost
And out of time
I should’ve seen it glow
But everybody knows
That a broken heart is blind
That a broken heart is blind

9. Fu-gee-la - Fugees

Oooh La La La, It’s the way that we rock when we’re doing our thang
Oooh La La La, It’s the natural LA that the Refugees Bring
Oooh La La La La La La Lalala La Laaah, Sweeeeet Thing 

10. Tighten Up- The Black Keys

I wanted love, I needed love,
Most of all, most of all
Someone said true love was dead
And I’m bound to fall, bound to fall
For you
Oh, what can I do?
