y'all have to watch the video so you can hear how he says it

My video chat with Newsies' Andy Richardson

I got the extremely lucky chance to Skype with Broadway star Andy Richardson for my theatre class because my uncle is friends with him and I was able to set it up. This is my biggest accomplishment of my life, and I still can’t believe this happened. I never in my wildest dreams would think this would be possible, yet here we are. I’d like to share my experience with y'all because it was such a pure thing and Andy is absolutely wonderful.

Andy was super excited to see us. When the video chat started, he grinned really wide & waved a lot. Anyone who had a question he’d wave and say hi to.

He started off by telling us about himself; he grew up in Austin, Tx and got into theatre when he was around 7 and starred in his second grade play as Cheese(I may have misheard because of buffering, but it sounded like he said he was Cheese). His mom flew him to New York to audition for Gypsy and booked the gig, working alongside Pattie Lupone. After the run, he returned to Texas and continued with school, only to return to NYC to make his Broadway debut in Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas. He then went on to play in Newsies from its start at Paper Mill all the way through to the show’s closing this last year.

We then got to ask him questions, and he was just the cutest, sweetest, and funniest person ever! He seemed really happy with the questions we asked, and here are the highlights:
•He loves getting to do a backflip while wearing a wig that goes all the way down his back and in heels
•He really wants to perform in any Deaf West production
•One of his dream roles is Fiyero
•His favorite show he’s been in is Newsies, but he also loves Kinky Boots, and his favorite character he’s been is Crutchie
•Any time he thought about a question he rocked backwards and inhaled deeply
•Some of his favorite shows are Wicked, Heathers, Newsies, & a few others that I couldn’t hear due to connection issues.
•Upon saying he loved Heathers, my friend Riley(who is very fun & exitable) stood up and screamed “QUICK FOLLOW UP QUESTION: WHAT HEATHER ARE YOU OR ARE YOU VERONICA?”
•Andy Richardson is, in fact, Yellow Heather
•Riley screamed something along the lines of “OH MY GOD SO AM I WE ARE LITERALLY THE SAME PERSON!”
•Also did I mention his favorite mEME IS KERMIT THE FROG? He said it doesn’t matter which meme it is, anyone with a frog.
•He also loves the new Meryl Streep one
•He’s very expressive with his face, which causes for hilarious moments when Skype freezes(I might post screenshots)
•He saw some kids filming & asked “Is that snapchat?” and instantly started voguing
•He grew up from a military family, so was very used to referring to adults as “Ma'am, Sir, Mrs. Mr. ext. and when meeting Patty called her "Mrs. Lupone and slightly offended her.
•One of my best friends asked what his favorite song from Newsies was and could he sing it, and what happened next was AMAZING.
•His favorite song to listen to is Once And For All. It is, quote, "Everything you need.”
•He saw the show when he was on a break and he said he was sitting there and the stage started moving, the harmonies mixed, the lights shone brighter and that was the best moment ever.
•He did this really cute thing while describing how he reacted to seeing it where he jumped and leaned back in his chair, placing his hand over his heart.
•(unrelated note that is how me and my friend reacted to seeing that part when he saw it in theaters)
•His favorite song to perform is Letter From The Refuge. It’s such an intimate moment after this intense and fun dance number where it’s just him on stage on a bunk bed with a candle lit.
•He then stARTED SINGING AND I ABOUT DIED
•HE ONLY SANG THE FIRST FEW LINES BUT THOSE WERE THE BEST MOMENTS OF MY LIFE
•My friend literally slid out of her chair once he was done saying “I’m dead, I’m dead, that was so amazing it killed me!”
•One of my friends kind of draped herself by the table when asking her question, and he said “I love the pose!” prompting her to drape herself even more
•He has the MOST ADORABLE LAUGH & HIS SMILE IS PURE GOLD OKAY IT’S SO BRIGHT IT COULD POWER THE DEATH STAR

This is all I can think of right now, but after I watch the video I took I might add more

Im Youngmin as your boyfriend

- so turns out he actually takes the same bus as you, and for a while he’s been admiring you
- making sure you have somewhere to sit, even if it means he has to stand for the whole journey
- however, your always too tired to even realise what’s going on
- but its the day of ur job interview and lmao you woke up late!
- and so guess who forgot their bag which contains all their belongings, including ur phone and wallet?
- hahAHAHAHa you…
- ur at the entrance of the bus and of course everyone’s looking at the strange girl who doesn’t have a bus pass but is still trying to get in…
- and all of a sudden someone from behind pays for your bus fare
- your too embarrassed to even look them in the eyes but you still thank them
- what makes it worse is the fact that the bus is extra crowded and you hate standing because you can hardly even reach the handles that dangle down for you to hold on
- “just hold onto me”
- you see an arm held tightly onto the handle and you can feel the other arm wrapped loosely on your waist
- lmao by loosely I mean awkwardly propped on your waist unsure how tight or loose to hold you, as well as unsure where exactly to prop their arm…
- nevertheless you’d rather not embarrass yourself even more by falling over so you start to hold tightly onto him
- can I just say, a wHOLE LOADA STARING
- DIS BOI HAS NO CHILL
- when you finally have enough courage to look them in their eyes you realise they’ve been looking at you this whole time
- BLUSHING!!!!!!
- warning- youngmin likes to smirk… a lot
- you can feel the laughter coming from his chest
- he follows you out the bus and claims he’s going wherever you are
- ‘I’m youngmin by the way, what’s your name?“
- “why do you keep following me?…”
- your so embarrassed and you really don’t want him to see how red you are because of him
- “fine. You caught me, by now I should probably be in my lecture… But before I go, at least let me get your number.”
- how could you say no???
- and before you both know it your pretty much texting non stop and he asks you out on a date
- your first official date is at a PC bang, and yes he was planning to be romantic and teach you to play one of the games called over watch
- but sIKE, you were a frequent PC bang user back in the day of high school and let’s just say, your way better than him
- “but I just wanted this to be romantic and I wanted to teach you, I was planning so much and now you’ve just completely beat me…”
- youngmin whining, with his lips pouted and hair in a hot mess
- before you knew it, you had your lips on his
- fIRST KISS!!!!!
- you could just about reach his lips but after a few seconds youngmin already had his hands wrapped around your waist
- “youngmin… I’m sorry that you sUCK AT OVERWATCH!”
- you try your best to run away but he catches up to you instantly
- and yay, second kiss
- this time he’s confident and in charge, hands placed lightly on your cheeks and yours were tightly around his body
- “wow, you’re an absolute beast on overwatch- it makes me like you even more…”
- confESSION!!!
- its official y'all are bf and gf!!!!!
- changing his relationship status on all social media
- as well as bragging about you a lot
- “yah, woojin! My girlfriend can actually play overwatch aND SHE’S REALLY GOOD, what can your girlfriend do? SiKE I LIKE YOUR GIRLFRIEND SHE’S REALLY NICE please stop hitting me…”
- smiling youngmin means your most likely smiling as well
- you can’t help but get lost in his eyes when they crinkle as he smiles
- normally silences with youngmin are the kind which are enjoyable, no awkwardness just a sense of understanding
- he walks you home when its dark and at times like this he’s quite protective, youngmin more or less always has his hand around your waist when your walking home
- which your fine with tbh
- but in general you guys trust each other but sometimes you feel that youngmin is way too chill when your around guys, and you’ve realised he doesn’t really care or get jealous
- “do you even like me? It just seems that sometimes you don’t even care when I’m around these strange men!“
- “are you being serious right now? You don’t even understand how crazy I feel when I see you around these guys but I trust you and I don’t want to be that annoying over protective boyfriend… I trust you, y/n and you should know that i only have room in my heart for you.”
- you both apologize to each other and make up
- but what’s a make up witHOUT any make up sex…
- lemme just say, youngmin likes to take charge…
- and by now your neighbours clearly know his name .-.
- but just in case you haven’t realised what I’m hinting at; a whole loada love bites and delicate kisses on your body as well as hardcore exercise
- “yOUNGMIN, look at all the red marks I have on my neck from last night. Do you realise how hard it is for me to cover it up with makeup?!”
- “well you weren’t complaining last night”
- and there it is again, his smirk is now even more prominent and mixed with his perfect bed hair and morning voice…
- well one thing leads to another and your late for work, again…
- cute café dates and surprise the cafés you normally go to are cat cafés!
- rather than being focused on what your talking about he seems busy with stroking a nearby cat but now this gives you a chance to admire him
- “admit it, I look really cool right now”
- hE was right, with his satoori and his jawline and the cat…
- “you’re the lamest person I know”
- “y/n you make my heart flutter whenever you act like this, so cold and cool… Wow- 100% tsundere style, I’m in love”
- youngmin teasing you was something common but he really did mean the last part…
- you rolled your eyes before a laugh finally erupted out
- journeys on the bus together consists of sharing earphones and normally fighting over who gets to pick the music
- “but youngminnnnn, you love me right? And so you’ll love anything I love, and I love jiyoung oppa so let’s listen to some of his music!!!”
- youngmin doesn’t respond and you notice him flinch at mentioning love but try your best to ignore it so you just change the music to your gdragon playlist
- your walking home together and he’s still not responding
- “youngmin, what’s wrong? Why aren’t you talking… Are you just going to continue like this? Really?”
- you try your best aegyo to persuade him to open up but unlike usual, it has failed
- “yah do you know how you make me feel? Whenever I’m with you its like I can’t even feel my heart anymore, what do you want to hear? That you’re right? Because you are, I’m probably talking absolute bullshit right now but I just really like you- no, I love you.”
- you pull his face close to yours
- “me too, I love you”
- there’s a smile on his lips whilst you kiss
- “but seriously, y/n why do you call gdragon ‘oppa’ but not me?”
- “because your lame”
- youngmin also likes to play with your hair
- whilst your waiting in line his hand is around your shoulder and reaching to fiddle with your hair
- one night you’ve decided to try and get him to braid your hair
- at least he tried…
- he also likes whispering in your ear, knowing especially how ticklish you are
- passerby’s would think he’s saying something dirty but in reality its just dumb jokes
- “y/n you no longer have to watch asmr videos, I will be your asmr and im available 24/7”
- “hahaha very funny.”
- sharing clothes! He lowkey leaves his jumpers at your house so you can wear them… But he gets highkey turned on whenever he sees you in his clothes
- youngmin also endulges in couple items, making sure to drag you to buy matching t-shirts as well as matching phone cases
- “look, I sent this picture to my mum and she says we look cute… I would’ve expected her to cringe”
- “y/n! How could you do this to me?! Sending her a photo which I probably look weird in- I’m her future son in law and…”
- he stops at ‘son in law’
- “oppa, what are you even- psh, son in law?…”
- awkward silence
- “you finally called me oppa, that’s all that matter right now and we can discuss the future… In the future…”
- his smile reaches his eyes and your heart instantly melts
- “well, youngmin- son in law doesn’t sound that bad, right?”
- all of a sudden youngmin is on one knee and his hand reaches his chest pocket
- “Y/n, will you… ACCEPT MY HEART?!”
- Instead of pulling out a ring box like you were assuming he would, he pulls out nothing but his fingers in the shape of a heart
- “wow, I’m in love with such a loser”
- aNd you both spend the night in each others arms with an empty pizza box and mulan playing on the TV
- your both in love with each other and thats all that matters right now but as to what the future may hold… Well, who knows

How would “some of the members” react to listening to History Maker and watching an episode of YOI

HELLO EVERYONE MOD SAERAN HERE BEING HAPPY BECAUSE I JUST FINISH EATING CAKE *INTERNALLY SCREAMING* anyways here is a random HC for Yuri on Ice 


Saeran: *HIS POV*

  • “ Babe I swear to god shut that shit off.” He sighed. But he knew this song was on repeat every fucking Tuesday thru Thursday. JESUS Christ WHAT IS THE FUCKING HYPE OF THIS FUCKING ANIME!! She doesn’t even want to spend time with me. She just sits on the couch and watches it on her laptop. She has this thing. She does a marathon by herself on Tuesday. She looks for spoilers on a thing called Tumblr on Wednesday, she watches the dub which is EPISODES behind ( the stupid thing in English) in the morning then she watches raw around lunchtime and then she watches the episode with subs around dinner time. And throughout the whole FUCKING TIME SHE IS SCREAMING.
  • It’s not me making her scream. It’s this fucker called victuuri and yurio. Like what the fuck? What kind of names. I finally decided to sit down next to her and slowly asked her “ Babe….. what is Yuri on I-” she fucking ran to the freezer pulled out ice cream and shoved it to me. She went on google and typed the names of the three main characters. Okay. So it’s a tall Zen looking guy, a guy , and another guy who looks like a pist off yoosung. Okay this should be interesting. She showed me the first episode and hmm. Still don’t see the hype.
  • * 6 EPISODES LATER* Hi my name is Saeran and I am a Yuri on Ice addict. My favorite character is Yurio because he is literally me. We reached episode 7 and the only reaction this show had given me is so many emotions within me. I will not let my girlfriend see me enjoying this anime.
  • *Yuri AND Victor kiss* HOLY FUCKING SHIT THEY MADE HISTORY OH MY GOD BABE OH MY GOD *THROWS ICE CREAM* WE MAKE IT HAPPEN WE TURN IT AROUND YES WE WERE BORN TO MAKE HISTORY CAN YOU HEAR MY HEARTBEAT OH MY GOD OH MY GOD BABE * I looked back at her and she was recording *
  • She was recording me the whole time
  • This is the story of how I got 10 million views on YouTube because everyone supposedly love my reaction………..

Yoosung: * his pov*

  • you: *cosplays Christophe Giacometti* *starts dancing around sexually* *takes a leap and lands on the floor with your head tilted back* I I think I’m going to come again
  • Seven: ANYA I WILL SAVE YOU MY LOVE AS I ALWAYS PROMISED YOU
  • When he was running to you he notice you were laughing and he knew it was because of the makeup. He picked you up and kissed your forehead and danced your way to his laptop.
  • You placed your S/O on your lap and and waited for it to start. You got the other laptop ready to download so when the episode is down you can upload all the best gifs on tumblr
  • You loved how you can be yourself around your s/o because both of you literally scream HISTORY maker
  • You guys were screaming at literally everything. The whole show is full of screams because of you two. When you saw Yurio missed his first triple axel you fucking cried. Your Christophe had to comfort you.
  • When MAKKACHIN might die you had to comfrot your Christophe
  • Y'all were serious goals TBH
  • Because it was a different cosplay every Wednesday and it was a fucking tradition in the house

Jumin: *your POV*

  • “Jumin….. please watch it with me :/”
  • “ I rather spend my time counting Elizabeth 3rds shedding hair again and compare the angle of it rather than seeing a man name YURI just standing there on ice. How can commoners like watching a man just be there on ice.”
  • “JUMIN ITS MORE THAN THAT. ITS ABOUT A MAN NAME YURI TRYING TO GET BACK TO HIS FAV SPORT BUT THE POOR MAN HAS A HARD TIME DEALING WITH PRESSURE AND HIS IDOL VICTOR COACHES HIM AND MAGIC. FUCKING. HAPPENS.” You went to GOT get your phone and turned on HISTORY MAKER.
  • “The song is catchy I must say but I just don’t want to watch it. Sorry my love”
  • “ Fine whatever, you won’t get sex till the season is over.” You walked away pist because he always didn’t want to watch your fav anime with you. You grabbed your MacBook from the shared master bedroom and went to the guest bedroom and got the speakers out connected it to the computer so you can be surrounded with YOI. stupid Jumin.
  • Jumin felt bad because you always did what he wanted to do so he went to the master bedroom to apologize and cuddle with you but you weren’t fucking there.
  • “CAN YOU HEAR MY HEARTBEAT” he heard the music coming from the guest bedroom and he saw Elizabeth 3rd going to the guest bedroom. He slowly walked there and he saw you dancing it. He never seen you so lost into the music. He felt horrible for refusing to see the thing that made you happy. He went to you and gave you a big hug and he sat down and you showed him each and every single episode
  • “ I’m sorry but YURI P. Is my favorite. Did you see his previous feline. He is my favorite.” You laughed because he was getting more and more into it.
  • *episode 7* you were freaking out because of the kiss and he was confused ? Like okay he thought Victor and Yuri made an excellent couple but how come they didn’t show the kiss? He was rather confused till you explained to him about the stupid censorship. He notice you were quite upset.
  • *next wednesday* THEY WERE HAVING A FUCKING HOUR SPECIAL. It was a rerun with them showing Victor and YURI kissed and in episode 8 while YURI grabbed victor tie after the whole LOVE speech he gave victor a kiss near his lips and you were dying and you saw the credits were changed with C&R INTERNATIONAL. and you looked at him next to you and you fucking gave him sex listening to born to make history. Because this man gave the fandom what they want

Zen: *his POV*

  • YALL are always arguing for spelling. Y'all SHIP the same ship but you say Viktuuri and he says VICTUURI. He says it’s Victor not VIKTOR. You say is Yuri K and then Yuuri P he says the opposite. That’s the main fights from Monday Thru Wednesday.  
  • He actually does the programs really similar and he literally looks like he is about to skate in real life but boy is just dancing to the song. You love him because he literally performs HISTORY MAKER for you every single Wednesday. He dances and sings to it and you decided to record him one day and he posted it up on his blog and he became even more famous LOL
  • his favorite is Victor because he says that Victor has every right to be confident and to show it in every performance xD
  • When the kiss happened. You thought the reaction videos were hilarious but this MAN STARTED TO BURST OUR CRYING AND HE PERFORMED HISTORY MAKER AND YOU RECORDED EVERYTHING AND HE GOT 1827482920101373737281 VIEWS
  • HE WAS MAKING YOUTUBE HISTORY

Title: Missing A Step
Fandom: Check Please!

Setbacks are frustrating, but they’re better with friends.

Or: Bitty has a bit of a relapse. Jack notices before he does, and makes sure he’s okay.

(I’ve been wanting to write something for this fandom for a while. Big surprise, I wrote something about concussions)

read on ao3

He’s fine except when he’s not.

Sometimes he reaches for a word that’s no longer there, and it’s like missing a step, like those trick stairs in Hogwarts, he’s walking not watching his feet and suddenly he’s knee-deep in a hole he didn’t know was there.

To the Four of Us (EPILOGUE)

Words: 2,569

Author’s note: It took me weeks (months?) to get this right. I got so attached to my TTFOU characters that I had to make sure they had the right sendoff. I ended up loving this story. I loved writing it, I loved reading your comments (don’t think for a second that I didn’t read EVERY SINGLE ONE of them. I did. And they ALL made me smile), and I love that you guys loved it so much. Seriously I can’t thank you all enough for letting me share this with you and for supporting me. I don’t wanna get long and sappy so I’ll leave it here. Also, I’m sorry for the wait, but I really hope you enjoy it now that it’s here!

Now, without further adieu, the TTFOU epilogue!!


There’s comfort in familiarity. That was why when they turned onto the familiar street with the familiar lampposts and the familiar trees John literally squealed with delight despite the snow which fell softly onto the windshield.

Alexander raised an eyebrow at his husband. Normally in the presence of snow, John would be at least a little grumpy.

anonymous asked:

Hey there! So, something recently made me disappointed with some fans of mysme. I've seen some fans who attempt to change the settings (mostly to Japan or America). I once met someone who full on gave them English "nicknames" because she didn't want to attempt to pronounce or use their proper names. I don't know if I'm overreacting or anything, but it bothered me. So, can you do random HCs to honour Korean culture? Like going on vacation somewhere in Korea, or celebrating a 100 days anniversary?

A/N: why do people do that wtf?? I mean i know we somewhat change the culture when we write certain requests pertaining to how an mc looks because sometimes the culture doesn’t really look kindly on the appearance but as someone who isn’t korean, i can’t get into the mentality to reject a request like that or anything, ya know?? Because it can be harmful and hurt someone (i keep it in the back of my mind what the actual view is so i dont just…. disregard it, but i do feel terrible for not addressing it) but i’d never completely REJECT the culture and change their names or anything because just what the fuck ~Admin 404

ALSO IM NOT KOREAN SO I HAD TO RESEARCH A L O T FOR THIS REQUEST BUT STILL COULDN’T WRITE MUCH- AND I MEAN I RESEARCHED REALLY HARD BECAUSE IM A NERD AND ENJOY LEARNING ABOUT OTHER CULTURES BUT IF SOMETHING IS WRONG PLEASE LEMME KNOW

I’m sorry it’s so short omfg

               -Okay y'all, I’m pretty sure Zen knows traditional dances and our MC has to beg him for DAYS to teach them one. Any of them. Buchaechum (fan dance), Nabichum (butterfly dance), even Ilmu (line dance). Any of them. All of them. Just- JUST TEACH MC ZEN, DO IT

               -LOTUS LANTERN FESTIVAL IN HONOUR OF BUDDAHS BIRTHDAY! It’s a celebration that everyone in the group makes time for! Seeing all of the gorgeous lights and lanterns is enough to put everyone in such a good mood! The group makes it into a slight competition- who can bring MC the prettiest lantern? Winner gets a kiss on the cheek from MC! yeees mc, yes

               -Jumin has THE MOST BEAUTIFUL terraced garden you’ve ever seen in your life. He invites you over to help him with it every now and then. It relaxes him and hopes that it could do the same for you! The two of you could spend hours sitting by the lotus pond, drinking some sort of imported and expensive tea this rich guy has to have, talking about anything and everything plus helLO YOU’D GET TO SEE JUMIN IN SWEATPANTS

               -Jaehee. In. Hanbok. Think about this for a little bit. Colourful, beautiful, and just- what else can I saY???? JAEHEE IN HANBOK

               -YOOSUNG LOVES CELEBRATING HIS VERY FIRST 100 DAYS ANNIVERSARY he might not have a ton of money to spoil you like he’d like to, but he does get really creative and goes hardcore. Takes the knowledge he’s gained from all of the clubs he’s been in and makes you a ton of gifts! Coffee, cards, dinner, he makes it all just for you! He does it every 100 days though so he has to get more and more creative about it and sometimes has to go to the rest of the RFA for some ideas (MATCHING SHIRTS AND HE’S EVEN BOUGHT YOU A COUPLE’S RING BECAUSE HE WANTS TO SHOW PEOPLE HE HAS A S/O THAT HE LOVES VERY MUCH)

               -Remember when Jumin called Yoosung’s mother and he was so mad he promised to slap him with Kimchi? Ya know how Kimchi is a symbol for Korea and is considered strong? Well he definitely gave Jumin a hard slap if that counts; MC has it on video and all you can hear is the *smack* and Saeyoung laughing in the background

               -You and Saeran have had a few drinking contests, and Saeyoung cannot believe how many bottles of soju the two of you can go through?? How are you both still breathing?? It’s even worse when you add Zen into the mix, it’s as if doesn’t work on any of you. Yoosung gets one shot and he’s out for the rest of the night

               -Jaehee and MC plan a hike at least ONCE a month because the poor girl needs fresh AIR and it’s good for the both of you, y'all get out there and earn those pajeons (fritters) and dong dong ju (rice wine) at the top of that mountain!

               -You and Yoosung have to drag Saeyoung out of the house sometimes, but the three of you end up at an internet cafe more often than you’d like to admit. One time though, there was one person in LOLOL who kept killing all three of you, and the anger just kept rising- which meant the voices kept rising as well. The person on the other side of you all kept trying to stifle a laugh each time. In the Rage of Saeyoung™, he almost flipped the table until he realized the one beating you all was Saeran on the other side

               -YOU CAN’T TELL ME SAEYOUNG, MC, AND ZEN HAVEN’T TRIED TO RECREATE SOME KPOP VIDEOS

               - You also can’t tell me that Jumin hasn’t tried to dance along to a few every now and then; MC has a picture they keep to themselves in remembrance

               -You and V watch the movie Shiri almost religiously?? When the two of you have movie marathon dates, it’s played at least once (“IT’S A CLASSIC, MC. CLASSIC”)

               -It’s hard to go on any dates with Saeran, but you did get him hooked on a few different K-drama’s and he reminds you constantly that he HATES YOU because of it. Don’t you DARE watch an episode without him because the boy can hold a grudge

               -K A R A O K E!!! All of you. Almost every weekend. Competitions. Somehow Saeyoung tends to win them except that one time you convinced Jumin to participate and WOW okay

Splenda stays worried about whatever the Ichiruki fandom is doing and actually has the gall to advise it on how it should and should not conduct itself. Why can’t she just ship her OTP and leave us alone? Why do I always hear that she’s prattling on and on about what we do?

IH is our NOTP. It’s not some unheard of thing that we would judge the ship and maybe even, I don’t know, hate it. This is normal behavior.

If people want to burn their merchandise that they spent their money on it’s their business. Why can’t she find some business of her own and get out of ours? Why is she policing IR fan-fiction and fanart when she ships IH? What the fuck kind of sense does that make? None at all.

I have never had the displeasure of being subjected to such a despicable fan in all of my years of watching anime and reading manga. I have never seen a canon pairing so on the defense all the damn time. Kubo validated IH in his own half-assed little way.

Regardless of the fact that I feel he stupidly allowed a ‘BROTP’ to outshine the canon end-pairings, IH is still canon so all we can do is enjoy IR and bend the end of Bleach and the overall story itself to our will. Why is she concerned about how we will to do those things though?

How does Ichigo and Rukia committing adultery invalidate 686? There are people in the IR fandom who don’t like IR stories/art featuring adultery and what do they do? They move around. They find content they do like. They may voice their disdain but it is never rude and they do not bash the authors and artists. They accept that it is a depiction, an interpretation, the exercise of creative license. Why is IH forgetting that this is fiction? Specifically, Splenda.

She makes a fucking life out of worrying about her NOTP and its fandom. It is her pathetic goal to discredit the IR fandom when she herself constantly vagues, harasses IR properly tagged and untagged posts, and exhausts time that she could be spending minding her own fucking business. I just do not get it. It’s insanity to be honest and obsession. And the insult is after she’s done all of this and garners a response from those she’s harassed, she blocks them. But earlier she was big and bad and using all of her senseless nerve to insult people and harass their content, but instead of just staying in her own lane and finding the will to stop stalking, she blocks. Well, why the fuck did you even bother in the first damn place if you’re a frightened ass coward? Girl, have several seats.

And for the record, I’m not vagueing about her. She blocked my ass too 😂😂😂.

I’m just tired of this. People are always saying just respect others but she’s insulting an entire fandom of real people on their feelings concerning FICTIONAL CHARACTERS.

I’m also not saying that IR doesn’t have its own bad apples. Let the record also show that I don’t fuck with them. They can kick rocks with no shoes on right along with Splenda.

The overall point I hope I’m making is just MIND YOUR FUCKING BUSINESS AND SHIP YOUR SHIP. IR stuff wouldn’t bother you in the least bit if you blacklisted it and STOPPED LOOKING FOR IT.

This is the last thing I’m going to say about this. Maybe. Y'all know me 😂😂😂. It’s just that all the time we spend worrying about our NOTPs fandoms is time we can spend creating something for our OTP.

I will always shit on Orihime. I have never liked her but if the IH fandom think she’s queen then goddamn it she can be their queen and Rukia will remain mine. It’s not hard and it’s free to stay in your own damn lane. Honestly.

SHOW TWO. PALA ALPITPUR TURIN, ITALY MARCH 17TH, 2017. NIGHT TWO

Castle On The Hill
Eraser
Dive
Don’t/New Man
Starting off with castle again. I have a feeling thinks going to continue for awhile, and also the hoax shirt thing lol. I love when the guitar part kicks in. I really love this song live. I think this crowd is gonna be awesome even through they just messed up the words haha. They still sound incredible. I love the beat in eraser and I’m still enjoying ed moving around. Just casually tuning the guitar while recording backup vocals lol. Just brilliant. Dive is probably my next favorite song after happier. He did not perform this during night one. I’m in love with crowd. Their and eds voices together are just beautiful. Dive is one of only a few songs ed doesn’t bvs or building for. Don’t/New Man is becoming one of my favorite mashups. Eddy please be careful jumping around lol. I don’t know why he’s singing the lyrics “2 shows” instead of “2 planes” but I’m not a fan of the change. I also don’t know why but ed always gets this bad boy attitude when he sings new man and I love it. He’s more rapping than singing with a flow on the second verse.
The A Team
I’m A Mess
Happier
Galway Girl
The a team is another song that ed doesn’t do a lot, if any, building for. It’s such a beautiful, simple song with a huge impact lyric wise. Oh I’m a mess always makes me a huge mess lol. I like the old video on the screens better. The bursting colors look better than these falling clouds of color. I will always love the building/bvs for I’m a mess. The crowd sounds great but it’s gotta be hard for ed to sing in one key when the crowd is singing in a key higher. But I like how they are singing to him and not just with him. Happier my heart ahh, I love this song. I don’t however love this video for this song. It kinda makes me motion sick lol. I don’t how he does it but this song breaks my heart and makes me smile all at the sametime. Yay Galway girl. I could watch him play this song for hours. Ripping out that ear piece haha better be careful ed. His little dance moves are the best haha. Oh goodness he’s already singing beat for her feet haha. He gets so into that he doesn’t really pay attention to what he says but I love when he gets lost in a song.
Nancy Mulligan
Supermarket Flowers
Human/I See Fire
Photograph
Here’s another song he didn’t perform last night. This is nancy Mulligan. It’s a great song just a little too folky for my taste. It’s definitely better live but still not my cup of tea lol. Well I’m kinda surprised that he’s singing supermarket flowers. I did not figure we would hear it this early in the tour. It’s gonna be another song for me to get pissed at the crowd over lol. Now until don’t/new man, human/I see fire is my least favorite mashup. I do however want a full version of human. Sorry I got lost in the video on the screens lol. I’ve grown to absolutely love the video, maybe even more than the video from last tour. It’s just breathtakingly beautiful. So he now has a flag haha. He must have grabbed it from a fan between songs. Photograph is another great building/bvs. I will always love photograph.
Perfect
Bloodstream
Thinking Out Loud
Sing
Perfect is great song for all the cell phone lights. I got lost again, this time in the song so the video kinda weird lol. Sorry this bloodstream video is so bad but it was the only video avalible. The hip hop arms are back. I wonder if he’s still telling the same crazy joke lol. Oh changing the lyric crowd to turin for thinking out loud, slick ed very slick lol. Omg did they let a roster in, is Gladys here. I swear one of these fams hollering sounds like a roster haha. I love how much he loves this crowd. Well the wireless box came off the guitar strap lol. It’s always something with his guitars and their straps haha. This view is gonna be awesome for the sing video and lights. Sing louder, ed um I don’t think they can get much louder haha.
Encore
Shape Of You
You Need Me I Don’t Need You
What Do I Know
He also really gets into shape. This is the quietest the crowd has been all night. Let’s see if he remembers to take a picture during you need me tonight lol. I find it interesting that’s he’s not mashing anything with ynm, I kinda miss him throwing in random songs. Broke another string lol. Yay he remembered haha. What do I know. I swear he’s saying star monkey closing haha. He actually walked off the stage tonight with them still singing, he didn’t night one. What do I know in my opinion isn’t the best choice for a closing song but what do I know lol.

Night two is in the books. It didn’t differ much from night one other than he performed dive, Nancy Mulligan and supermarket flowers. I was so surprised he performed supermarket flowers. That song is like afire love, it’s very personal, and I didn’t think he would perform it so soon. I’ve learned that the new fyi for this tour is: ed takes out ear piece, get ready to sing haha. He takes it out so he can hear the crowd sing. My favorite is when they’re just singing without him asking and he takes it out just to listen. Tonights crowd was the best so far, it’s gonna be hard to beat them. Whichever crowd does will deserve an award haha. We are heading to zurich next, I remember this place being one of my favorite shows from the multiply tour. So hopefully they live up to my expectations lol. I’m looking forward to it either way. I hope y'all will join me next week for show number three, until then have a great week sheerios 💙💙💙.

Confession

A/N: tbh I wrote this at 10 pm and its a mess with hidden svt lyrics and memes. I thought abt memes and suddenly here’s a Vernon one shot. also have you seen vernon’s isac archery pics? really damn fine whoops. 

Pairing: Vernon and reader

Genre: Fluff  are memes a genre 

Word Count: 1367

Summary: Feelings are hard to deal with and Vernon tries to put them in the right direction by confessing to you. 


Most of the time, Vernon would tell himself that things would go smoothly. That last math test? It went fine. Avoiding responsibilities? That went fine. Sleeping in class? That went fine. But when it came to the topic of you, his brain couldn’t function properly. He really, really liked you. Sometimes he did strange things -the rhetorical equivalent of splashing in a pool- to get your attention. Blasting ‘Careless Whisper’ on his saxophone in band class was arguably the best of many. Not only did he get your attention, but he also embarrassed himself for the rest of the year.

Yesterday he barely managed to ask you over to his house. Barely. Before he called you on his cell phone, he had to watch Shia Labeouf’s infamous ‘Just Do It’ motivational speech to give himself confidence (twice. He watched it once more for good measure).

Vocal Unit Reacts to their S/O Singing Really Well

Jeonghan:

This angel ugh
Okay so Jeonghan would hear you singing quietly in the early morning, he would still be in bed and you would silently be shuffling around, getting ready for your day, quietly singing “20″ to yourself, when he would sit up on his elbows and harmonize with you, startling you. Jeonghan would get out of bed (wow) and intertwine his hands in yours and smile at you, encouraging you to sing with him in the early morning light, sun rays shining through the open window onto him, so how could you possibly say no to that? 

(oml this is only the first one how am i gonna get thru the rest call 911)

DK/Seokmin:

okay our ray of sunshine alright
DK would be goofing off with you and the beagle line and they would want to play Sing It, and you were totally content with just sitting back and watching them have fun, but no, Hoshi had the idea to make a bet on which team would win, You and DK, or him and Seungkwan. You were admittedly hesitant, not having the vocal training that they had, but Sunshine DK reassured you that there was no pressure to do well, since Seungkwan was singing as well.(He chased DK around with a pillow for that.) What wasn’t expected was that you were good. Like, really good. When you first started singing all three boys jaws would drop, and stay there until you were finished. DK would start cheering and would come over and pick you up, spinning you around in a circle when your beautiful vocals caused the two of you to win, and gave you a big kiss, smiling into it when he heard Hoshi and Seungkwan gagging behind you two.

WooziJihoon:

oh no my ultimate bias here we go oh boy howdy I’m gonna die
So. Woozi. This boy. This awkward smol bean. He would be working late late late on a new track, quickly losing steam and inspiration, and would be getting frustrated with himself when he called you to see if you were home, not wanting to go back to the dorm and deal with the rest of the members at that point. Woozi would go home to you, and you would be able to tell just by looking at him that he hadn’t had a great day. You would grab his hand and walk over to the sofa, settling yourselves down in a nice cuddle, him laying his head on your lap, you playing with his hair with one hand, and your other hand intertwined with his. He would absentmindedly be playing with your hand, eyes closed, when you quietly started singing “Simple,” not trying to be super loud or sentimental or anything, but just because it’s a soothing song, and Woozi’s eyes would pop open to meet yours. No words needing to be exchanged, he just had to listen to your sweet voice singing his song and he knew that you were the one for him, for always.
(i was correct I’m dead inside bury me to Mansae.)

Joshua:

this B O Y omg alright
okay so we all know how much of a meme he is with that damn guitar. Joshua would be playing his guitar, just messing around at your apartment when he started to play a song you knew. You would be humming along, reading or playing on your phone or doing homework if you’re a good studious person unlike myself, laying across the couch (partially on him lmao he comfy) when he would stop playing and ask you if you knew the lyrics to it as well. Startled, you would say yes and he would use his phone to pull up the lyric video to it, grabbing your hand and dragging you off the couch, Joshua would ‘force’ you to slow dance with him, softly singing the lyrics to the song with you, as he rested his forehead on yours, looking into your eyes as you swayed to the music.
(the song i had in mind is Livewire by Oh Wonder idk what about it reminds me of Jisoo but it does)

Seungkwan:

lbr Diva Boo is gonna make a big deal of it if you can sing really well. Showering? duet. Cooking? Duet. Using the bathroom? dUET TIME LADIES.
So Seungkwan would drag you out with the rest of Seventeen to one of those karaoke rooms for his birthday, and y'all would be up there getting turnt and singing your hearts out, Vernon dabbing and everyone being general memes. As the night gets later and people start getting tired, the soulful ballads come out, and you don’t really like singing in front of people, or your boyfriend, and especially not your boyfriend’s professionally trained singer friends. But, the pressure was high and you had no idea what to do for Seungkwan’s birthday present, so you convinced him to go into a Photo Booth and take pictures for his wallet, to go right next to the picture of his mom (lets be real he totally has a picture of his mom in his wallet.) when you would suddenly get a rush of confidence and grab the mic and after some arranging, you and him would start singing a beautiful duet of Shut Up & Groove, shocking him with your vocal power. Not shocked in a bad way of course, but Boo has some pretty impressive high notes so someone who can keep up with him is impressive. He would declare it the best birthday ever, and brag to all the members that he had the most amazing and beautiful girlfriend ever.

It’s like 1:00 am and i am an old woman this is late for me i hate being up this late but I’m gonna be away this weekend and wanted to get this done and it’s shite but here have this it was a struggle for my hoe heart. <3 you!

Bitty and the Queen

So I totally am oblivious to most everything and I only found out that Beyonce was performing in Atlanta after it had already happened but….I got to thinking….what would it have been like if Jack had surprised Bitty with tickets to the show??

Bitty’s freaking out because this tour has been sold out since forever and how did Jack get the tickets?!!! (Those NHL connections, y'all)

Bitty trying to find the perfect outfit and showing them all to Jack via Skype (Jack: “I love everything you wear, Bits”)

Bitty and Jack working to clear their schedules and keep everything on the DL (but this is Bitty and he’s totally gonna spill it all on his vlog because he HAS to tell someone!)

It’s all coming together and they catch a flight to Atlanta. Bitty is forcing Jack to listen to every Beyonce song and watch the videos. They’re sharing ear buds and Bitty is being a total fanboy the entire time: quietly singing along, getting teary-eyed, and elbowing Jack to pay attention (Jack really just wants to stare at Bitty the entire time)

They get to Atlanta super early and Bitty is having the best time taking Jack around to some of his favorite places (i.e. bakeries). (They both wish they had time to visit Madison…)

They get to the Georgia Dome early. Bitty is rocking his favorite Beyonce shirt and a pair of shorts that Jack had said made his butt look super cute *this boy*

It’s madness. So much energy and love. Jack has never been to a concert like this. He would feel overwhelmed surrounded by thousands of people all screaming and singing but Bitty keeps him grounded.

Bitty looks like he’s died and gone to heaven. He’s crying and laughing and singing. It makes Jack feel a little wistful but then Bitty turns to him, reaching up, up, up for a kiss.

And then they’re kissing, wrapped up tight. Jack can taste Bitty’s happy tears in his mouth, feel the hard, fast tempo of Bitty’s heart.

The music and crowd is deafening but Jack still hears Bitty as he practically yells into his ear “I’M SO GLAD I CAN EXPERIENCE THIS WITH YOU!!!” Jack just grins and gives his boyfriend (his boyfriend) another deep and heartfelt kiss.

The show is everything Bitty hoped it would be and the rest of the night (spent expressing his happiness and gratitude to Jack at their hotel room) was beyond perfect. Bitty’s exhausted but still riding his afterglow as he and Jack catch their flight back. They sleep the whole flight, leaning together, Bitty’s head resting on Jack’s shoulder, Jack’s cheek pillowed on Bitty’s soft hair.

When Bitty finally stumbles back to the Haus his teammates are all curious about his trip (vaguely described as a musical education seminar). Bitty just grins and says “It was…passionate.” The guys are a little confused but roll with it.

Meanwhile, Jack’s teammates can’t figure out when Jack became such a huge Beyonce fan because he keeps freaking humming her songs ALL THE TIME. Tater does a special episode about it and it becomes a huge talking point with the fans and, of course, the guys at the Haus. “Bittle, did you know Jack likes Beyonce??” Bitty just smiles awkwardly and quietly mutters “Oh lord” under his breath. But later he sends Jack his favorite Beyonce playlist.

anonymous asked:

Buddy buddy friend pal. Parse comes out. All goes well. Jack plans to come out soon. Bitty tells his family he's dating a hockey player. They think it might be Parse or someone from Samwell (DEX bcos i am trash) The shock when its Jack is #wild.

There’s not much else Parse can really do now. He’s posted the picture on Instagram; a simple shot of he and Alexei’s hands entwined, rings glinting in the light of Alexei’s fire place, with the caption “Love is love. Suqq on that. ;*” and man, it’s really blown up over night but.. it actually goes really well. Nobody says he should lose his job, his team doesn’t give a fuck one way or the other, and the PR even clapped a hand on his shoulder and whispered “Proud of you” in his ear. His mom and sister both called him crying; they were so so happy for him.

Jack gets his inspiration to come out from Kent’s victory. He figures that hey, it’s been three years since he and Bitty started dating officially; it was time. Almost, anyway. He would wait a little, let Parser have his moment of glory, then he’d really sit down and talk with Georgia, Bitty, and his parents about it, just to get their input and opinion on how he should do it. His dad suggests doing a short video on twitter and it’s just a tour of his new home, and then the camera can pan over to where Bitty is standing in the kitchen, surrounded by boxes and kitchen utensils. He would smile, and maybe quietly say something like “Hey, honey.” And boom; Jack comes out. Caption the video with “Do you think my boyfriend has enough mixing bowls?”

Bitty tells his parents that he’s dating a hockey player with Jack’s permission; both are thrilled for him but Coach makes him promise not to get reliant on NHL salary. “I’ve raised you to be independent, boy,” his dad’s voice might be gruff but Bitty can hear the love and pride in it. “So don’t you get complacent. Get a job and stick with it son. We love you, me and your mama both.” Suzanne’s reaction is.. a little different. “Oh my goodness, is it that sweet redhead we met last year? What was his name, Lord help me I can’t… oh!! William! Or, well, I think y'all called him Dex? Is that him? He signed with Boston didn’t he?” And Bitty’s face is beat red. “Mama!! No!! Dex is like a son to me! Good Lord, woman, have you no shame?” He’s joking of course, and he promises to tell them who it is when the time comes.

Shout-out to Phil's Mum, tbh

“Hello guys!” Phil waved to his Mac camera, beaming at the influx of Hi Phil! in the chat box. “I think I can tweet the link out now. There are so many of you!” His raspy voice wavered in and out of his normal tone.

He opened Twitter and tweeted “I’m doing my live show! Come log on if you want to hear me sound like I swallowed a frog #ribbit”. He cleared his throat before speaking again.

“Hello Miranda, hello Jack, and Tristan, and Jenna, and Ashley, and Louis, and Patricia, and Alexandra, hello everyone!” Phil clasped his hands together, resting them in his lap. He turned his head and coughed into his shoulder.

“Sorry about my voice guys; I think I may be getting sick!” Phil worried his lip, glancing through the messages. His smile returned as he saw get well wishes crop up immediately in the chat.

“Do any of y'all-I just said y'all. Isn’t that a weird word? And does it even qualify as an actual contraction or is it like ain’t where everyone uses it but it’s not a ‘real contraction’?” He accentuated the last part of his sentence with air quotes, his former thought forgotten.

amazzzingphil: I think it is

Kathyisonfire: isn’t it just you and all?

Bobtheomelet: you just said y'all OMG

“What was I gonna say?” Phil asked himself. “Oh right! My mum always used to give me tea with honey in it when my voice got like this,” he lamely pointed at his throat. “What did your mums do for sore throats? Yasmin said chicken soup, Sam said tea, Diana said tea, wow a lot of you guys drink tea!” he grinned.

“I’m gonna let you all in on a little secret.” He moved closer to the camera, bringing his hand to the side of his mouth, as if he were telling a secret.

“The only time I really drink tea is when I’m sick,” he whispered to the camera.

“That’s because you’re a coffee pleb,” Dan said, leaning against the doorframe. Phil jumped back, clutching his chest, his voice breaking, his heart racing as he squealed.

“Oh god, Dan. You scared me!” he said, breathing heavily, unable to hide the fond smile on his face. Dan laughed from off screen.

“Come on, sit down! We’re overdue for a Dan and Phil live show!” He patted the spot next to him, luring Dan to the couch and on camera. Dan tried to hide his smile as he walked over.

“I’m not going to sit very close to you because you sound like you’re dying,” Dan said, though he sat right next to Phil, who rolled his eyes.

“Hello internet!” Dan saluted. He grabbed the black Union Jack pillow and fiddled with it so he wouldn’t lace his fingers with Phil’s. They weren’t out yet to the phandom, so they had to be extra careful with how they acted on camera. You can’t edit things out in a live show.

“So how’s everyone doing today?” Phil asked. “Worried, tired, hungry, good. It’s nearing exam season, did you all see our BAD Revision Advice video we did for Radio One?”

Dan smiled sheepishly. “I may or may not have already done all of them. The obvious don’t do’s, not some of the ones Phil gave you.” He smirked at Phil, who balked, which came out more like a squeak than a squawk.

“Herding goats instead of studying is a very practical thing Daniel!” He failed at saying that with a straight face. Dan rolled his eyes, spazzing slightly as he shivered. He ran his hands up and down his biceps, trying to warm himself up.  

“It’s so bloody cold in this room! Is our heating broken again?”

“I have no idea what you’re talking about, Dan. It’s not cold in here at all.”

“Oh, that’s right. I forgot, you’re a bloody furnace, alright–” Dan turned the computer to face him. “Imagine watching a TV show with this one, and literally feeling the heat waves come off of him,” he said. 

“Do we need to like, dunk you in ice or something Philip? Cool you down a bit?”

“Are you calling me hot, Dan? Wow, I didn’t know you felt that way, about me” Phil chuckled, his hand resting against his chest, the other moving the computer back to face the two of them. It still captured Dan who was quite red in the face, laughing into his hand.

“You wish, mate,” he said, ignoring the OMG messages and screenshots of the previous events bombarding the chat window. “Either way, lionsandllamasandbears proposed to you,”

“It’s a yes!” Phil grinned widely at the camera. Dan studied Phil’s profile for a minute before opening his mouth to speak again.

“You got a haircut. It looks nice,” he said, a shadow of a smile playing across his lips. The tips of Phil&’s ears turned pink as he absentmindedly ran his fingers through his fringe. 

“Thanks,” Phil turned toward Dan, locking eyes with him. Dan smiled, his lip caught between his teeth.

They almost forgot they were on screen, until Phil’s phone started ringing. He tore his eyes away from Dan’s to the iPhone on the coffee table.

Calling: Mum

“My Mum’s calling me,” he said, his cheekbones flushed red as he realized that he was still entertaining eleven thousand people.

“Should I answer it on speaker?”

The chat box screamed YES! so Phil obliged.

It was a mistake.

The call started off simple enough.

“Hello Philly!” Phil’s mum chirped. Phil used his free hand to cover his eyes, his ears tinted red. Dan had to bite the pillow he was holding to keep from sniggering at the embarrassing childhood nickname.

“Hello Mummy, how are you?” Phil asked. Phil’s mum went on about this and that. The Dickenson’s got a dachshund. (“I’m not a fan of them, if I do say so myself. They’re very cute, but when they’re barking at five in the morning, goodness me, they’re not cute at all.”). Diana from down the cul-de-sac is moving out to go to University of Manchester (“Studying psychology, of course.”). And then the motherly nagging starts.

“Have you been eating?” Phil groaned internally.

“Yes, mum.”

“And you’ve been sleeping at least eight hours every night, right?”

“Yes, mum.” He shot Dan a helpless look as he lied through his teeth to his mother. If he said anything other than yes, the phone call would take up the rest of the live show, with a full length rant on why it’s important for him to stay well. 

“You sound sick, are you taking medicine?”

“Mum, I’m fine,” Phil said, though his wavering voice gave himself away.

“You’re not lying to me, are you Philip Michael? Because when you moved out, you promised three things: You would remember to eat, remember to sleep, and remember to take your vitamins every day.”

Mum!” Phil cringed, sliding down the couch cushion. Dan clamped his lips together to keep from laughing at Phil’s embarrassment.

“Daniel, I know you’re there with him, has he been eating and sleeping?” Dan’s back stiffened. Phil shot Dan a look that said Say something but Dan shook his head, his eyes wide as if to say I’m not here.

“Sorry, Mum, he’s…at Tesco’s. I needed a USB to put my new proposal for our next radio show on, because even though I already emailed it to them, you know I can’t work without a back up.” He said pointedly, the end of his sentence more meant for Dan than anyone else. Dan glanced at the chat, but couldn’t see any actual messages over the flood of screenshots being taken.

“Alright, I’m gonna head off now. I’ll tell everybody you and Dan said hello. They’re all such big fans of you, Philly. We’re all so proud.” To which Dan and the chat box collectively went ‘awwww’. (Actually, Dan buried his face into the pillow to keep from being heard.)

It was all in all a quite pleasant conversation. Until…

“And you tell your boyfriend your father and I said hello too, and we’ll see you two for Christmas. And tell him to put up more videos like that new Reasons Why Dan’s a Fail. I quite liked that one,” she said. Phil choked on air, paling instantly.

Fuck. Fuck. Fuck

Dan dropped the pillow, his shoulders tensed, jaw dropped. They stared at each other, eyes bulging. Phil’s grip tightened on his phone, so much so Dan was beginning to worry about the case breaking. That wasn’t supposed to crop up in conversation with eleven-no wait, fifteen thousand people watching them.

“Alright, I’ll tell him you said hello, alright, bye Mum, love you!” Phil stuttered out, his voice having raised a couple octaves, not at all helping his voice, before hastily hanging up the phone.

Haile: what

Jenn: whAT THE FUCK

Michaela: did Phil’s mom just?

Tanaisnotanartist: Phil’s mom just outed Phan.

PrincessBrandiana: Shout-out to Phil’s Mum, tbh.

Phil did the only thing he could do, could think to do.

He closed the laptop.

(Actually he slammed it shut, but who’s keeping track?)

“Oh shit. Oh–that wasn’t supposed to hap- fuck, Dan.” Phil stuttered, letting out a frustrated groan.

“What do we do now?” Dan asked, clutching at his arms. Phil buried his head in his hands.

“I-I have no fucking clue.” Phil pushed his fringe out of his eyes, bouncing a curved knuckle against his mouth.

“No, no wait. I know we can do.” Dan said after a moment, steadying his voice. “A funny coming out video. A more serious one will happen later this week, with us sitting in our office chairs and acting all srs bsnss, but let’s just address it while we still can. It’ll be okay, Phil,” he rubbed Phil’s back gently.

“A funny coming out video. How do we do that?”

******

Phil and Dan stood in their shared closet in their room, the lights off and door closed. Phil pressed his lips against Dan’s softly.

“Kisses for good luck filming?” He chuckled into Dan’s mouth.

“You’re such a dork,” Dan said fondly. Phil laughed again and pressed the record button.

“Phil, this is stupid.” Dan reverted into his on-camera voice, trying to figure out where the lens of their camera was in the dark wardrobe.

“No, it’s not. Come on, let’s do this.” Phil argued. Dan squeezed Phil’s hand. He took a deep breath, opened the closet door and stepped out. Phil turned the camera to face Dan. Dan stuffed his hands in his pockets, and rocked back and forth on his feet. He walked in a small circle before turning to face Phil once more with a smile.

“It’s bright out here.” Dan laughed, opening his arms out. “Come out here with me Phil, the light and pride feel fine!”

“Okay,” Phil turned the camera to face himself, took a deep breath, and stepped out of the closet. He beamed, walking over to Dan so they were both in the shot.

“Well, there you have it folks. Dan and I have officially, literally, come out of the closet.” Phil said to the camera. Dan walked behind Phil, and wrapped his arms around his waist. Phil leaned his head back, pressing a kiss to his boyfriend’s cheek.

“A more formal coming out video will be on my channel later this week.” Dan said, resting his chin on Phil’s shoulder.

“But for now? You can say that yes, Phan is in fact real.” Phil said before turning his head to kiss Dan properly once more.

Review: Buffering by Hannah Hart

Rating: 5/5 stars

Favourite character: n/a 

On a scale from one to gay: Raging lesbian

Trigger warnings: This book actually provides trigger warnings, so I’ll list them here: Schizophrenia, sexuality (lots of internalized homophobia), questions of faith, questions of fame, drug use (quote: “psychedelic visions in the desert”), self-harm, sex, spiders, suicide (a very small part), and neglect/abuse.

“If you’re reading this and you think that maybe you could love someone of the same gender (or nongender), all I have to say to you is this: Congratulations! You’re perfect and wonderful and more alive than you ever knew. Be proud of who you are because you’re already more than enough.”

When I was a closeted gay, a friend and I were watching YouTube videos when he asked me if I knew who Hannah Hart was and if I liked her. Truth be told, I had no clue and had only seen her in a collab. But I remembered her face and God, did I think she was cute. So I smiled and blushed and told him yes and we watched an episode of My Drunk Kitchen. I never really watched a video of hers after that. Not because I didn’t like it but because I forgot to write her name down and so forgot to subscribe.  
A few years later I saw the name again (because how can you be on the Internet without hearing about Hannah Hart?) and finally subscribed. Again, I didn’t watch any videos other than the new ones in my sub box. Not because I didn’t want to, but because why watch old videos when you can watch the new and make the most of your limited (read: poorly budgeted) time? 
But after reading this book, I’m going to start watching Hannah’s old videos.

The China Line Chronicles #EqualityForAll Ft. The8 & Jun

Kris: Yo Lay thanks for letting us use your bedroom for our meetings.

Lay: No prob, I have like 4 houses in China anyway. This stale dorm room needs to be used for something.

Luhan: I’m still nervous actually being so close to SM! You know that when we’re in Korea, they technically can control us.

Kris: Luhan, don’t be such a Tao.

Tao: Hey!

Kris: We’ve had 2 successful meetings without getting caught so don’t jinx it. By the way where are the two Seventeen kids?

The8: *enters* Here!

Jun: It wasn’t easy sneaking out of the BTS dorms. Taehyung wouldn’t stop asking us about the Great Wall of China.

Tao: Understandable.

The8: Plus Baekhyun and Chanyeol were in the kitchen drinking milk from the jug when we came in and we had to crawl past them.

Tao: Less understandable.

Kris: Okay back to business. I’m happy that we were all about to make it out. These equality meetings have been really helpful.

Jun: Since I started following y'alls advice to stand up for myself more, things have gotten SO much better! I got to be in the center for our latest comeback!

Luhan: That’s great to hear! How many lines do you get now?

Jun:

Jun *whispers* one.

Kris: Well Rome wasn’t built in a day so..

Tao: I released a new video!

Lay: Uh oh

Kris: *clears throat* I saw, and Suho even called me to ask me about it. Not going to lie, I sorta want to stuff a bar of soap in your mouth.

The8: I hate watching families fight.

Jun: Ikr?

Lay: Well speaking as the only Chinese member in Exo I wanted to tell you that things have gotten better. Suho and Kai always acknowledge me as a dancer on TV now and SM threatened to cut Baekhyun’s vocal cords if he tries to tease me about my Korean.

Tao: Well dang! Where was that option when I was in the group?! Say the word wrong for “emotion” once, and you never get to live it down. Jeez

Kris: That is good news! How’s the recruiting for more members going?

Luhan: Well that WinWin kid still has stars in his eyes and hasn’t had his dreams crushed into a bloody pulp, so he’s refusing for now.

Lay: And Jackson’s phone has been disconnected. So I can’t get in touch with him.

Jun: Dude

Lay: What?

The8: Too soon

Kris: Don’t sweat it guys our “Equality for All Chinese Idols” meetings are rea–

Chen: *knocks on door* Lay are you okay?! There’s a lot of noise coming from your room at 2 in the morning!

Kris: *whispers* everyone shh!

Lay: *through door* YEAH I’M FINE! JUST REHEARSING!

Chen: Well hurry up and come out! Suho is calling an emergency meeting about the importance of proper cane grinding.

Kris:

Luhan:

Tao:

Lay: Kill me.

Chen: What?!

Lay: Tell him I’ll be right out! *whispers* Okay guys I gotta go but I’ll let you know when the meeting is over so you all can leave

Kris: No prob it’s not like any of us have important things to do.

Jun: Um actually The8 and I have dance practice in a few hours.

Tao: I’ve got a flight to L.A. in a little.

Luhan: And I’ve got to hurry up and get back to China to finish filming a drama.

Kris:

Kris: Psh you know I got major things I have to do to *coughs* Films and um MV’s…celebs! You understand?

Lay: Not really

Luhan: Okay Lay you just go so you don’t blow our cover.

Lay: Bye guys, don’t work too hard! Um except for you Kris…sounds like you aren’t doing much. *leaves room*

Luhan: Lol ouch

Kris: Whatever. Can we just wait quietly please?

Tao: Can I sing my new single?

Jun: Oh God no.

Tao:

Tao: Fair

The only Underclassmen auditioning for Drum Major

So, it was a Friday night in October where a young and band-obsessed tuba player (me) was waiting in the horn ark to be tuned before the halftime show. I overheard the drumline playing the opener of our show and my favorite part, and I started conducting with them by myself and I made a pretty awesome cutoff imo. 

So the trumpet section leader watched all of it and she said “YO FEMS THAT WAS AWESOME!! 

Originally posted by alizabethnova

Are you audition for drum major next year?”. And I was like “mmmmmm idk" 

Originally posted by yourreactiongifs

and then she said “Please please don’t, because I wanna try out and I won’t get it if you audition”. And I said “haha no worries, I’m probably not going to anyways”. 

Originally posted by henryjedwards

 Fast forward to the last competition of the year, I was apart of leadership and the drum majors lead the rest of the leadership back to the busses to change for retreat. After I was done changing, the co-drum major pulled me aside and said “So I got you and Darren to be drum majors next year, so I’m handing you the keys” which I was very confused because I was like I don’t drive, don’t give me any keys, but he took of one of his drum major bars and handed it to me. Later I found out that it was a tradition that the drum majors did at their last competition, where they basically give their opinion on who should become the drum major(s) next season. When I found out, I was shaking in my band shoes.

I couldn’t even speak full sentences to people.

I told my section about it and they began to encourage me and word caught on and some of my peers and the rest of the band did the same, so I calmed down and started to feel optimistic about it!

(I also got a kiss on the cheek from my crush so that also helped, just thought I add that). 

Originally posted by stayclassysupernatural

 Now for the next months before auditions, I spent everyday refining my conducting skills, helped in organizing the community outreach the band does, and began being more vocal, as leadership positions were active year-round, even through symphonic band season. 

Originally posted by controversialdb

Man, I watched so many drum corps videos just to look at the drum majors. 

Originally posted by yourreactiongifs

Like everyday I did, and I tired to replicate them in every way. The different kinds of cues, how they crescendoed and decrescendoed, and the intensity from the direction of the show!

 Fast forward to the audition week! I was a nervous wreck. 

Originally posted by fororchestra

I didn’t talk to anybody all week. I couldn’t eat, sleep, I couldn’t even watch drum corps videos. 

Originally posted by mtv

I was so nervous, I literally said “Y'all, I can’t do it”. 

Originally posted by micdotcom

My bandmates were like “NOOOOOOOOOOO”. 

Originally posted by leatherjacketrenegade67

I was just too nervous. Our band usually takes two drum majors, so Darren (the homie that got the other “key”) pulled me aside and said “Femi. You got this ok? You’re the main reason why I’m auditioning. I was in the same situation as you. I was a Sophomore turning Junior, auditioning against Juniors turning Seniors. I didn’t try out because of that very reason, and I don’t know if I’d be the current drum major because I didn’t sell myself high and audition.“ 

Originally posted by uneedsomeyeskii

I didn’t want to admit it, but he was exactly right. I was nervous because out of the 11 people trying out for Drum Major, I was the only upcoming Junior, while the rest were Seniors next year. But, I was always nervous about everything and I never took chances for the better, because of my fear of rejection, and I was sick of it, because I started to look at all of the opportunities I’ve missed because of my insecurities. So I told myself “Femi…you got this…you got this”.

So we did clinic work before the audition and I was firing on all cylinders! My conducting piece (the 1993 Cadet’s Closer) was solidified and for the first time in my life, I was filled with confidence in myself. I was the second to last auditionee, and it was my turn to audition. Of course, I was nervous. It felt like gravity intensified, but I was ready to go. 

Originally posted by thatfunnyweirdindiechick

I did the basic patterns, called out the commands, and did the salute. So it was time for the audition piece. Drum corps Is a huge part of my life. Watching it is one of the most calming things I can do to myself, and it was the same way when it came to the piece, I hit every single beat. 

Originally posted by poorgrammar

My ictus was consistent, and I the end of the closer, Brad Green (Drum Major of the 1993 Cadets) did this awesome 1&3 cue, and I didn’t practice it because I didn’t want to mess up, but my body and mind were out of sync, and I did it anyways, 

and I felt great when it was over! We announce the leadership and drum majors during our band banquet during the next to last week of school, which was also a week after the audition. I was at peace during the banquet, because I knew that even if I didn’t get selected drum major, I knew that I would never be the same person who was afraid to voice his opinion about stuff, that always bet against himself, that feared rejection. 

Originally posted by gifsfortheusing

It was time, Drum Majors were announced first. Another tradition when selecting drum majors, is that our band director asked us to basically play “heads-up-seven-up” and when you got picked, you know that your drum major. I heard applause and cheering while my head was down, so I knew that a drum major was selected. For a moment, I wanted to cry, which I ended up doing, but for a different reason. Because right after I hear the applause, I got the thumb-wiggle as well. So Darren and I became the drum major for the next season. I was overjoyed. 

Proud of what I did to achieve the goal I set for myself. I got many hugs, many kisses, and it was a feeling I’ll never forget. People ask you “if you went back in time to tell yourself something, what would you say?” And I’d tell the young tuba player that I believe in us, because even in our lowest of lows, we have the potential to do and achieve anything we desire…and I tell him to stop drinking Dr. Pepper during practice.

Okay but like you’re lying to yourself if you don’t think that Alec Lightwood is secretly the most romantic, sappy dork ever. Like:

  • Alec placing light feather kisses all over Magnus’ face
  • Alec getting up before Magnus and making him different shaped pancakes 
  • Alec packing Magnus lunches whenever he has to go out to meet a client and writing him little notes that tells him how much he loves him
  • Alec quoting romantic poetry to Magnus (William’s Shakespare’s Sonnet 18 or “Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?” is his personal favorite)
  • Alec not being able to help himself as he watches Magnus talking to another person and leaning in and kissing his cheek
  • Alec always sneaking up behind Magnus and kissing him softly on the neck while he wraps his arms around his waist
  • Alec always praising Magnus. It doesn’t matter what the setting is or whether the activity is sexual or  if they’re just cuddling Alec always loves to tell Magnus how beautiful he is and how important he is to him
  • Alec totally being that guy to wait for a rainy day and to pull Magnus out into the rain so that they can share a rainy kiss
  • Alec buying Magnus flowers
  • Alec discovering Snapchat and sending Magnus videos of himself with all the different filters and saying things like “You are so BEEautiful” (with the bee filter, of course)
  • Alec calling Magnus babe and honey
  • Alec kissing Magnus’ hands (Magnus has some wonderful hands so how could he not)
  • Alec running up behind Magnus and picking him up bridal style and saying “Oh, look, I’m sweeping you off your feet”
  • Alec and Magnus going to a carnival and Alec spends all of his money trying to win Magnus one of the stuffed animals and eventually he does (and recieves a victory kiss from his boyfriend)
  • Alec taking Magnus’ face in his hands and singing the sappiest love songs to him (in key or not) while Magnus is laughing his head off
  • Alec painting Magnus’ nails and spending hours with Isabelle learning the basics of make up so that he can help Magnus in the future
  • Alec taking Magnus out stargazing and pointing out all the constellations to him as they lie on the ground holding hands
  • Alec nuzzling Magnus’ hair or nose 
  • Alec tickling Magnus in order to hear him laugh and see his nose scrunch up
  • Alec cheering Magnus on whenever he makes a sassy comeback at diplomatic meetings to all the ignorant fools or whenever he slays in battle or just whenever. Alec just being proud of Magnus in general
  • Alec bringing Magnus chicken noodle soup and fuzzy socks and blankets and movies to watch whenever he gets sick, even if it’s a common cold
  • Alec just being in complete awe and wonder of his amazing boyfriend and just being utterly in love with him

And the list goes on and on!
