yeah i cropped myself out of the picture

Seeing Lynn Gunn

Before I start I want to be clear that what I’m about to say I only mean in the most positive way. I do not mean to criticize, judge, body shame or objectify. Here we go: Lynn Gunn has “imperfections”. At the show last night I realized that Lynn Gunn had some squish build up on her back and that her stomach was not completely flat and her hips don’t stick out like I thought they did. Lynn Gunn, the woman who I has inspired a countless number of my outfits, has been my style icon, and has been one of my biggest crushes, has the same body characteristics that I have been criticizing myself for. I was so hard on myself because my hips didn’t stick out like my professional model friends because I thought they needed to in order to be beautiful but Lynn Gunn is a babe with out it! I get nervous wearing a crop top because I don’t want anyone to see my back squish, but Lynn Gunn has back squish too! Lynn Gunn is a smoke show even though her stomach is not completely flat because you don’t need a completely flat stomach to be a smoke show! Yeah she’s incredibly hot and beautiful in her pictures, but seeing that back squish made me love her even more! Last night she looked happy and strong and healthy, and for the fist time I realized- not too much smaller than me. I love the amazing beauty that is Lynn Gunn.

okay so I was in like for the meet and greet and I was shaking!!! I finally got up to meet him and he just looked at me and smiled and I didn’t know what to say so I said “hi! it’s very nice to meet you!!”

and he said “it’s nice to meet you too!”

so I payed my comedown machine record down and then I put a picture if brunch on top. at first he didn’t get it and then I said “SOOO I was hoping you’d understand the jokes” and you could tell it clicked and he went “Ohhhhh I see , I get it. I get it. very nice” and then he took the paper and I said “you don’t have to sign it if you don’t want to, it was just a joke” and he said “hahah it was a good one. I’m gonna put it on a t shirt. print it out and put it on a t shirt. ” and then he held up the picture to his vest.

after that, I hand him the cd I made him. it has a lot if songs he likes on it and I said “so I made this and it’s just a lot if songs that I’ve read over the years that you like” and he said something along the lines of “sweet I love it” HAHAHAH. so then he puts his hand up for a high five and it was kind if awkward because at the same time I said “and I made this for you too!” and held up the necklace and I high fives him with the necklace in his hand and he was like “oh !!! shit!! another gift thank you!!!” and he inspected it and said “wow. intense. that shit is hardcore..” and he held it up in the light and said “wow… what is that? are those two nails molded into a cross? pretty intense. I get it. wow. thank you so much. thank you a lot” and he was smiling so I think he liked it.

so then he just stares into my eyes and I was like “can you sign this?” and I pointed to the record. he started signing it and said “damn. you came mega prepared. you don’t fuck around, do ya?” and I was like “I was kinda trying to get you to sign the voidz record but it hasn’t come in the mail yet” and he goes “well yeah I haven’t even seen one yet..” and then he smiled and laughed and I said “I saw the posters that your stepfather made and I was wondering if they’re going to be available on the cult site?” and he said “they’re not on there? I thought they were. I guess not. we should have them up on there pretty soon!” so I was just like “oh ok cool!” and then I said “do you kind if I get a picture of you?” and he said “no not at all” so he leans over across the counter and I said “oh nooooooooooo not a picture WITH you, just a picture OF you. and he said "why???” and I said “well because I feel like I look horrible!!” and he said “ohhhh come onnnn no you don’t!!!” and I was like “yes I do !!!!” so he said “oh shut up”

and then before I clicked on the camera app he snatched my phone out of my hand (huge fucking hands) and he threw his entire arm around me for like 10 seconds and then he held the phone up to take a pic and then I said “should you put the flash on?” and he said “I thought you didn’t want to be in the picture and now you want flash? hahaha” and I said “well, I’m gonna crop myself out” and then he still had his arm around me and he held the phone up again and snapped a pic and said
“did I get it?”
and the person behind me said yeah you did and he offered to take another picture and I said “just take it of him. I look so bad and Julian said "oh shut up!!!” so then we took the picture and then

I just think that this needs to be out there because it’s been on my mind for a while:

How can anyone NOT see how much you resemble both of these characters? Both in looks and in personality!

The long, beautiful hair. The goofy smile. The tough, get-it-done attitude. And a gentle, caring soul.

It all seems to add up to the perfect Korrasami lovechild, and you fit that perfectly!

(Also I cropped myself out of the last picture because I’m ugly af. lol)

(Now I want to see someone draw you, LoK style.)

Haha aww shucks, man, you’re gon’ make me blush :P

But yeah, when you put it like that, I can totally see why people have made that comparison. I AM THE SPAWN OF MY OTP WHAT HAS HAPPENED

story about meeting julian tonight!!!

okay so I was in like for the meet and greet and I was shaking!!! I finally got up to meet him and he just looked at me and smiled and I didn’t know what to say so I said “hi! it’s very nice to meet you!!”

“did I get it?”
and the person behind me said yeah you did and he offered to take another picture and I said “just take it of him. I look so bad and Julian said "oh shut up!!!” so then we took the picture and then

so I met Jeff and Amir next. I walked down and I console rely forgot what happened. all I remember is when they signed my record and I said “can I get a picture of you guys together?” and they both said “yeah!!!! no problem!!! I’m so flattered” and I smiled and I said “do you guys want flash? do you mind?” and they were both like “oh yeah no!! go ahead! do what ever you want!” so I got the camera ready and was about to take the pic but I saw neither if then smiling so I said “what are you guys doing!! smile!!”
so I took a pic on flash and they both smiled:)

next I met beardo and Alex and they are so funny. I had my comedown machine record with me for everyone to sign and they both conversed and said “hey I remember when we made this record. it was a good one. it was a lot of fun making this record” and I laughed and said “well I ordered the tyranny record online but it hasn’t come yet” and Alex said in his adorable accent: “oh like a vinyl? you listen to music in a record player?” and I said “yeah!” and he said something along the lines of “hell yeah!! that’s fucking awesome. sweet man.” he was so nice:) so then I said “can I get a picture if you guys together?” and they were like “HELL YEAH!!!!” so I was gonna take a pic of them but I forgot what happened but they did something and I said “do you want me to just take a video?” and they were like “YESSSSSSSS” so I did.

they both started dancing like idiots together and I was dying of laughter. I said “thank you so much. it was very nice to meet you both.” and Alex asked what my name was and I said “Ali” and he smiled. so I walked away and waited for then to come out of the signing area and I talked to the girl beardo was with for a bit and she was so nice! we were making jokes and laughing and then beardo got her and they went back behind the counter to sign and then later in I was just standing watching them sign things and out of the corner of my eye I see the girl turned around and then looked back and then beardo turned around too and they both smiled so big at me and waved!! I was gonna wait until Julian came out because he promised someone to come meet him and his 2 friends after the signing but the guards kicked everyone out like 4 minutes before the voidz finished signing everything.

and I was front row to see the voidz and they were amazing!!!!!!!
