you can play the bass

Lyn-Z Way: Stands for feminism, is well-read, an independent artist, is in a band and doesn’t just sing, breaking stereotypes, learned to play the bass in a week, believes you can build your own family, made it into a band before her relationship with Gerard.

Every person on here: Hella gay 4 Lyn-Z Way lolz. Gerard’s wife. Backbend. What band??? What art???? Lol love her husband.

okay so me and @thelast-dodo are crying over musically inclined + adhd Lance McClain, and just voltron characters + music in general so I just…


•  Lance is great with string instruments, especially the ukulele and the guitar
•  He’s had an undying love for the ukulele since he was like 9 because he managed to strum a chord and half his family cheered and his dad stuck a sticker on his cheek
•  Both his guitar and uku are a mess of bumps and dings, and they’re both plastered with stickers all over
•  He plays when he’s stressed
•  He plays when everybody else is stressed, too
•  He’s constantly strumming similar patterns when morale’s low and urging the others to input their own lyrics, anything at all
•  “C’mon, Keith, you usually never shut up!” “Aw, please, Allura, I never hear you sing!” “Shiro you know you wanna”
•  Hunk’s the first to try it out, and pretty much after that they’re doing their best to sing something even slightly coherent
•  It’s never coherent, ever, but that makes it extra fun
•  Lance has so many lyrics stuck in his head at all times
•  Lyrics he doesn’t understand ‘You’re a constellation and stars mean everything to me, you’re the sun and being warm is everything to me-’ and lyrics he does understand ‘Playin’ word catch with you is like a dream, I’ll tell you-’ and lyrics that chime and ding and lyrics that feel like sparklers and feel like Summer or scarves or cat purrs
•  He makes up songs all the time and he knows he has a good voice so goddamnit, he’s gonna sing all the time if he wants to!
•  Keith is the first to learn one of his songs off by heart and gosh, can those two boys harmonise
•  It nearly brings Lance to tears when Keith’s able to join in with one of his songs all the way through, he hadn’t been expecting it
•  There are notes everywhere with stray lyrics on them
•  Hunk starts collecting them first, and putting them in Lance’s room for safe keeping
•  Soon enough everybody’s doing that too
•  Sometimes Keith and Lance are handing out in Lance’s room, Lance strumming away absently and Keith just letting the sound wash over him
•  Lance’s words might get stuck and Keith just pulls a suitable lyric from his notes and sings it, and the song carries on
•  Lance’s music is sporadic and unpredictable in every way, and moves and changes unexpectedly
•  His train of thought changes a lot while he’s thinking about the music and the words together
•  Allura once asked if that was how Earth music worked normally. Shiro just grinned at her. “No, that’s just how Lance music works.”
•  The boy cant read sheet music for the life of him, he just kinda knows where chords fit together and the boy just gets it without really getting it
•  Pidge once called him the “Mozart of the ukulele” but Keith rejected that real quick, because Mozart relied on sheet music, and anyway, Lance is the Lance of the ukulele because nobody else can play like Lance can
•  Lance blushes at that. A lot.

asdfghjkl; I love my music family, guys

The Bassist’s Deal

Summary: You can play the bass really well and Calum is like ‘hot damnn i must take this girl out’ 

A/N: Thank v much for all the requests and musichawk who requested this, I hope you like it. Much love xx 

Y/F/N: Your Friends name 


You took in a deep breath before you mounted the podium in the side of the cafe you were performing at, your hands were shaking as you positioned your fingers on the strings of your bass. Your friend gave you a reassuring smile as she pressed down in the keys of the piano and started the song. Your hands moved in rhythm and pretty soon you were absorbed into the music, forgetting your surrounding and your nerves leaving you. 

Calum had just happened to be walking by the cafe looking for a place to eat when he saw you strumming from the window. He glanced at you briefly but stopped and backtracked, he took into count your hair that was falling slightly in your eyes and your red cheeks. His mouth stayed agape as he studied you and was breath taken by how beautiful you looked. Not to mention you both played the same instrument. 

His feet moved before his mind could process and he found himself standing in front of the podium you were on and watch you create a beautiful harmony with your friend. He clapped loudly as your friend and you finished and you blushed, thanking everyone, he almost gushed at how cute you were. He tried to form the words of a greeting but couldn’t soon enough and you left to get in line for a cup of coffee. His gaze followed you and he almost felt compelled to you. 

He quickly ordered some random drink form the cafe and practically followed you to where the sugar and milk were, he soon found himself standing right next to you. 

“Hi…” You heard a voice say as you were pouring sugar into your drink, you turned towards where the voice came from and you were met with warm brown eyes that had your knees buckle a little. 

“Hi.” You’re voice came out weak and you tightened your grip on your bass’s case nervously. 

“You were, uhm,” He cleared his throat and wiped his hands on his tight jeans, “You played very well.” He complimented and you blushed nervously as you picked up a stirrer and began mixing your drink with the added sugar. 

“Thank you so much.” You smiled and your friend called your name but apologized when she saw the handsome guy you were talking with. 

“I have to go to class, I’ll catch you in Lee’s.” She said apprehensively before departing from the cafe. 

“That’s my-uh- friend, Y/F/N. We go to school together.” You nodded and you took a sip from your drink.

“Do you want to sit down…with me?” Calum asked and your face grew hot as you nodded, trying not to look so eager. 

“I’m Y/N by the way.” You smiled to which he copied. 

“Calum.” He said as he pulled your chair out for you and you thanked him before sitting down and placing your bass beside you. 

“So how long have you been playing?” He asked, leaning in slightly. 

“Hmm, it’s been a while.” You let out an amused laugh and tried to remember how many years it had been. 

“You play?” You asked and you grinned with excitement as he nodded. 

“Yeah I’m in this band,” He scratched his neck nervously, “We kinda suck but..” He said and he smiled triumphantly as you let out a laugh and went to cover your mouth as giggles escaped from your lips. 

“I’ll have to check you out.” You said before your face became hot and you stuttered, trying to correct yourself. 

“I meant your band, and your bass skills.” You face palmed yourself and you heard Calum chuckle. 

 “I wouldn’t mind both,” He smirked and you swept your hair behind your ear nervously. You glanced at the time and let out a gasp as you began gathering your things. 

“I’m sorry I have to go! I go to the music academy here and this performance was for school but I forgot I had to be back in fifteen minutes!” You rushed and Calum stood up with you. 

“I’ll walk you,” He insisted despite your protests. 

“So do you like performing?” Calum asked as you both walked across the street towards your school. 

“No, I get awful stage fright, I feel like I’m going to throw up.” You laughed and turned left.

“You must not have that problem though.” You said as you stopped at the crosswalk and waited for it to tell you it was safe to walk. 

“Of course I do! Sometimes when we perform I almost faint, it’s quite intimidating really.” He spoke and you glanced at him while you crossed the street side by side. 

“How do you overcome it?” You asked curiously and stopped in front of your lecture hall. 

“I’ll teach you my tricks if you teach me that cool strumming pattern you do,” He proposed and you nodded in agreement. 

“Alright,” You bit your lips, trying to hold back your smile. 

“But,” Calum interjected, “You have to come to my show and grab dinner afterwards with me.” He grinned and you glanced towards all your classmates that were entering the building then back at him. 

“You got yourself a deal Mr.” You smiled and you both said goodbyes as you rushed into the classroom to Y/F/N who was demanding every detail which you told her with the cheesiest smile on your face.

Rise Against Gothic
  • The band plays Savior.  They open the concert with Savior.  They close the concert with Savior.  The concert was Savior repeated nineteen times.
  • Zach is getting balder.  Is that possible, you wonder?  Luckily, the baldness knows nothing of quantum impossibilities and gets balder anyways.
  • Joe jumps onstage.  How does he jump so high?  One day, he jumps so high he starts to float away.  No one is concerned.  He’ll come back.  And you can still hear the bass being played from the stratosphere.
  • “Rise Against what?” people ask, people joke.  Little do they know, it is Rise Against because we rise against everything.  The system.  Injustices.  Existence.  Time itself.  We rise against.
  • Someone, somewhere in the world, says “rise against the machine”.  It is the final straw.  They have finally done it.  Tom Morello and Zach de la Rocha find themselves caught in a time vortex with Rise Against.  It is the nineties.  Rage Against the Machine does not exist.  Rise Against will never exist.  There is only Rise Against the Machine now.
  • Fans attend a Rise Against concert.  Every single attendee sprains their ankle.  It is no matter.  Rise Against is bad luck for ankles.
  • You sing along with Last Chance Blueprint on your afternoon commute.    “If I had to go to New York, and live, tonight, would you come with me?”  You sing along.  Suddenly, you are in New York.  You said yes.  It’s time to live.
  • Tim asks “am I loud and clear, or am I breaking up?”  He is breaking up.  The CD is unscratched.  You assume the song was always like this - scratchy, fading, not quite audible.  All sources support this.  It was always breaking up.  It has never been loud and clear.
  • Every day, Tim’s blue and brown eyes swap locations.  No one notices.

My Best Friend’s Brother *Calum Hood Imagine*

Your POV 

You were at your best friends’s, Mali house.  Both of you were talking,

“Come on Y/N you have to at least have a small crush on someone” Mali says wiggiling her eyebrows at you. You roll you eye’s, she did have a point you had a major crush on her brother Calum, I mean how can you not find him sexy? He was tall, tan, can play the bass, and he’s athletic. You look back at Mali Koa,

“Mali, I don’t like any-”, You were  cut off by the door opening, Cal and his band mates walk in, Luke, Mikey, and Ashton. They were all hot but somwthing with Calum was different. 

“Sup sis, how it goin Y/N” Calum says smiling at you his brown eyes looking amazing at that exact time. 

“ Good Cal”, You reply smiling back at him.  Okay, the truth is you and Calum had made out a few times. Once at a party but you both were so wasted you could barely remember. The second time was when you were waiting for Mali to come home and he was already there.   

“Were going to practice, sorry if were too loud we don’t you guys complaining. You replied with a simple “okay” while Mali told him to “shut up”. Cal looks at you, you start to get nervous he slowly bent down and used his thumb to get something off your lower lip. You were shocked, his bandmates were shocked, his sister was shocked, hell he was even shocked.

“Y-you had something on your lip”, Calum smiled at you and walked away with a tint of pink on his cheek. The only thing you could think as you look back at Mali was, I think I’m inlove with my bestfriends brother.
