you guys have no idea of how much i'm in love with his album

I'm blue, she's golden (chapter 1), Rock'n'roll band


Jughead Jones is part of an up and coming rock band, The Southside Serpents, created by Archie Andrews, Kevin Keller, Joaquin DeSantos, and himself. Looking to get their fans hyped for their next album, they request that they send in cover art from which they will pick one to be the actual cover of the album. Betty Cooper, a photographer with an interest in digital art and design, sees the ad while scrolling through her Instagram. She emails the band, sending them a portfolio and requesting to take their pictures and make their cover art. Impressed by her skills, the lead guitarist, Archie Andrews, decides to give her a chance. As soon as the band arrives at her studio, “The Blue & Gold,” Jughead takes an interest in this Betty Cooper.

Chapter 1

“I’m really not sure why all these girls on twitter think you’re some sort of sex god,” Archie laughed, “You’ve only had sex with what? Three girls?”

Jughead chose to stay silent at this and instead glared at Archie, wishing that he would stop talking about his sex life.

“Woah, dude,” Archie continued, “Are you a virgin?” He wiggled his eyebrows at his best friend.

“Shut up, Archie,” Jughead snapped, “You know I’m not a virgin. Why do we always have this conversation?”

“I know, I know,” he put his hands up in defense, “I just wish you would give me a number that’s all. I mean, I told you mine.”

“24 Is it?” Joaquin interjected.

“Woah dude, how’d you know that?” Archie looked at him in shock.

“You don’t exactly keep quiet about it,” Kevin shrugged.

“I’m surprised the whole state of New York doesn’t know yet,” Jughead added.

“Hey! How did this turn from us ripping on Jughead to you guys ripping on me?!”

“We weren’t ripping on Jughead, you were,” Joaquin retorted, “I think it’s respectable that he doesn’t kiss and tell.”

“Thank you,” Jughead nodded at him.

In reality, Jughead had actually only ever been with two girls total. The first was named Ethel at the age of 16. After a week of being in a relationship with her that he was pressured into in the first place, she threw herself on him and he figured that he might as well lose his virginity. They had sex once again after that, but broke up two weeks later because he “didn’t pay enough attention” to her. The second girl he had ever “sexed up” as he had heard Archie say several times, Jughead met when he was drunk. He woke up the next morning and she was gone. He never even got her name.

Besides that, Jughead had no other sexual or romantic experiences. He was 24 now, but he didn’t mind. He was married to his music anyway. And apparently he didn’t even need to have sex to be known as a “sex god” after they created their band, The Southside Serpents.

Jughead walked over to his laptop and pulled their Instagram page up. Two hours earlier, they had posted an ad that requested their fans make and send in cover art. The deadline was in a week, and after that, they were to pick a cover for their album out of the submissions. According to Kevin, it was supposed to “hype fans up for the new album,” Whisper City.

Jughead thought the idea was strange, but went with it because Kevin was right most of the time. Their Manager and longtime friend, Reggie Mantle, also liked it, so Jughead didn’t have much of a choice anyway.

So far, they had gotten over 20,000 likes, 3,000 comments, and 200 actual submissions. Jughead looked through them and was completely unimpressed. Most of them were shit, and the ones that weren’t, were average at best. ‘We’re gonna need some sort of miracle,’ he thought.

That miracle came in the form of none other than Betty Cooper two days later. While having her morning coffee and checking her Instagram explore page, she came across their post. Figuring that this would be a perfect, but far fetched way for her to practice her love of design, she sent them an email.

“Dear JP, Archie, Kevin, and Joaquin,” she began.

“My name is Betty Cooper and I’m a local photographer with a love of digital art and design. If you would allow me, I would like take pictures of your band and create a professional cover for your album. Some examples of my past work are attached to the bottom of this email to show that I’m legit. If you do find my offer appealing, could you send me each of your measurements in your reply? I’ll supply the stylist and make up artist. This would be of no charge to you and also doesn’t mean that I expect you to pick me. I’m sure you have gotten a lot of promising designs.

Thanks for your time,

Betty Cooper of The Blue & Gold Photography”

Archie was the first to open the email.

“Guys,” he said, waving them over from where they were all lounging on the couch in their studio, “I think I’ve found the perfect person for us.”

Joaquin was the first to walk over and read the email, “Ugh, that requires work. I thought this was all about us not having to do work.”

“No Joaquin,” Kevin stood up and to read the email as well, “This is so we can get a unique cover for the album and increase the hype. I’ve explained this to you so many times!”

“Chill, preppy,” he kissed Kevin’s cheek, “I’m just playing around.”

“What requires work?” Jughead asked, intrigued.

“Some photographer wants to photograph us then use those pictures to create the cover,” Archie explained.

“Hmm, seems interesting,” Jughead paused for a second, thinking, “how much would we have to pay?”

“She says it’s free. I guess she just wants a chance and some practice.”

“Is her studio close to us?”

“She says that she’s local, so I’m guessing she’s here in Boston.”

“Did she say where though?”

“Dude,” Archie whined, “if you wanna know, walk over here and read it.”

“Fine,” Jughead grumbled, walking over the the laptop, “Betty Cooper of the Blue & Gold Photography.” He read.

“Where is that?” Kevin asked.

“2.5 miles away,” Joaquin responded instantly.

“Damn, that was fast,” Archie said.

“While you guys were asking stupid questions instead of reading the email, I was making sure we weren’t going to be photographed and then killed in a creepy dude’s basement.”

Jughead was the first to voice his opinion, “I think we should do it.”

“Get photographed and then killed in a creepy dude’s basement?” Joaquin asked with a smirk, “That sure is some strange fetish you have their, Jones.”

“Shut up you dumbass,” Jughead said pointedly, “I think we should let this person photograph us.”

“We should?” Kevin questioned.

“Yeah, what do we have to lose?” Jughead asked.

“Apparently absolutely nothing,” Kevin said.

“So we’re doing this?” Archie asked.

“Seems like it,” Joaquin drawled.

After a quick phone call with Reggie, Archie sat down to type out their reply.

“The tattoo of the anchor with a compass” soulmate AU

SOULMATE AU SERIES // Title: “The tattoo of the anchor with a compass”
Pairing: Steve Rogers x Reader

Prompts: SOULMATE AU Colorless tattoos that get color when you meet your soulmate AND Soulmates where you can communicate via thoughts.

Requested by: @coldplaylover2009 (gave me the idea of making my soulmate Bucky thing into a Series thing so here it is, thanks love!)

Word count: 1695 (I’m not even sorry because i’m not doing a second part)

Warnings: Some language as usual and hey it’s fluff a warning? I always ask that.

A/N: I’m 100% Steve Rogers trash after writing this piece. Also, remember that feedback is always appreciated. Smooches to you all 

Bucky’s Part.  || Pietro’s Part ||  MASTERLIST

|| I don’t own Steve Rogers AKA Captain America or any of the Avengers, they belong to Marvel. ||

Back in the 40’s Steve Rogers never, not even once felt that voice in his head, that one that everyone was talking about. His best friend Bucky Barnes was just like him so he thought that maybe they weren’t destined to have a soulmate, like if that was even possible.

When he met Peggy Carter he felt love, but it wasn’t the same. They did have similar tattoos but never colored, and the voice in his head was nowhere to be heard.

By the time he woke up from the ice the first thing that he noticed was that his anchor with a compass tattoo was still uncolored.

But when he started to go out for a run to be able to be back on the field he felt something different, a low humming on the back of his mind. A melody that he never heard before, and a female voice that made him stop his run and he just stood there, listening to his mind.

My Babe's Impressions of FFXV Characters

So my babe @actualdannyfenton knows nothing about Final Fantasy and they gave me their impressions of Final Fantasy XV characters that I sent them and had me crying. Here they are~ 

Noctis Lucis Caelum: “Look I know I said I outgrew my emo phase but MCR just released that new logo and MOM LISTEN TO THE NEW LOGO”. 

Prompto Argentum: This man spends at least half an hour every morning doing his hair like that. If he doesn’t have time he slaps some gel in it and sticks his head out the window for a similar effect. He shops at Hot Topic but would never own up to it. Probably got those gloves from his emo little sister’s closet. He’s constantly saying he’s not gay but anytime ‘BUT MOM IT’S MCR’ shows up his heart melts a lil. 

Gladiolus Amicitia: “Look man I’m not gay but twenty dollars is twenty dollars”. He probably acts super tough but he has a pack of Capri Suns in his bag at all times and probably had like seven Tamagotchis growing up. This man is the Mom Friend. He kept his old DS and still checks on his Nintendo Dogs at least once a week. 

Ignis Scientia: “Alright class please turn to page 284. Jordan, turn to page 69 (;”. Me, an Intellectual. He probably stabbed a fork into a socket on a dare in middle school and kept the hair because some chick said it looked cool. This dude got bullied so hard in middle school and every night he said to himself “I’ll be their manager some day” and now he works at the local CVS and gets into fights with people on the internet over mundane things. 

Lunafreya Nox Fleuret: This girl keeps trying to impress 'BUT MOM MCR’ by faking to like his interests but in reality only 'Me, an Intellectual’ likes her and she’s PISSED. She has a septum piercing and anytime someone breathes in her immediate vicinity she feels the need to talk about it. “I’m Vegan.” “Okay coo-” “I’M A VEGAN EVERYONE SHOULD BE VEGAN VEGANS ARE THE ONLY DECENT PEOPLE ALIVE VEG-”. 

Ravus Nox Fleuret: He wears a really long cape that gets in the way of everything he does and anytime someone asks why he keeps it on he says “it’s for aesthetic” very dramatically while flipping his hair. He cares more about how he looks taking over the world than his actual plan. He didn’t start trying to destroy everything until his hair was at the perfect length and wound up missing a perfect opportunity but he passed “my bangs are so uneven I can’t be seen ruling the world with imperfect hair!!!”. He puts on eyeliner every morning without fail. 

Aranea Highwind: This is Camilla from Fire Emblem but with gray hair. Loves with a burning passion but kills just as easily. “Oh you’re sad sweetheart? Who do I need to kill to make you feel better? I’ll go get the axe”. She’s a great friend and gives excellent advice but should anyone cross her she makes them wish they were never born. She probably has a thing for MCR Boy too but he’s not too happy about it. 'Me, an Intellectual’ probably thinks he’s so much smarter than her but she could wipe the floor with his whiny mansplaining ass in chess. Best friends with 'I’m not gay but twenty dollars is twenty dollars’. 

Regis Lucis Caelum: Probably MCR Boy’s dad who just needs a break. He thinks his troubles are finally over until the new P!ATD album drops. He has never seen a child wear jeans so tight. Rumor has it that if you hear a loud rumbling noise from the castle it’s just him sighing because MCR Boy just found a new FOB song. He doesn’t know what a Tumblr is and everyday he thanks the lord for that until his son comes in and says “dad if I get 10,000 notes on a post will you take me to Warped Tour”. 

Ardyn Izunia: Gwaine from Merlin but with purple hair. Probably has some fancy European accent. Every character is in love with him except for 'Me, an Intellectual’ who hates how he so flawlessly gets everyone to love him. Kicks ass while still having perfect hair. He probably sold his soul for the hair to stay so well sculpted in battle. “L'Oréal: Because I’m worth it”. 

Iris Amicitia: “Sure, Jan”. She just came here to see her friend 'Septum Piercing’ but 'Me, an Intellectual’ showed up and is complaining about how women are taking over and she just has this fucking face. She has so much restraint but her bullshit limit is almost reached and she’s about ten seconds from punching 'Me, an Intellectual’ in his fedora wearing face. Always a sweetheart but she has her limits. 

Cindy Aurum: “Call me whatever you want for having my tits out but you’re the one who was looking”. Self-confidence goddess who inspires everyone around her to love themselves. A literal sunflower. She’s like 79% gay. She might seem a little dim to some people but get her talking about something she cares about and holy hell is she a genius. Let’s people make their own assumptions about her so she knows who her real friends are. 

Cid Sophiar: Old Man Jenkins. He acts like a super grouchy old bastard but deep down he cares about his misguided MySpace grandchildren. Probably makes them care packages for the road but says they’re from Lesbian Self Care Goddess. “ TAKE YOUR ATTITUDE AND SHOVE IT UP YOUR ASS have fun on your adventures kids be safe call me when you get there AND GET A DAMN HAIRCUT”. 

Cor Leonis: A girl broke up with him once ten years ago and he’s been locked away writing sad emo poetry about how nice guys finish last ever since. Watches romance anime exclusively and has a Hatsune Miku body pillow. Probably a Brony tbh. MCR Boy needs help finishing a quest but he won’t stop talking about how he was “so CRUELLY friendzoned and how LIFE IS POINTLESS without the LIGHT OF LOVE I mean I bought her dinner and wasn’t a total ass WHAT MORE DOES SHE WANT”. 

Nyx Ulric: Gray haired Draco Malfoy. Rich boy spoiled and groomed to be evil all his life but he’s really just naive. Has no idea what’s going on 99% of the time but he’s just trying his best. Doesn’t really agree with the shady things going on but he’s smart enough not to question Old Man Aesthetic Cape. Eyeliner Villain is probably his dad. Also probably a giant douche canoe but if you call him out on it HIS FATHER WILL HEAR ABOUT THIS. 

Gentiana: Her dad is also Old Man Cape Aesthetic. She’s trying so hard not to slap the shit out of his overdramatic ass and take over the world herself but she has appearances to keep up. Also probably tried to recruit MCR Boy to the Dark Side with her magic womanly wills but he’s too gay for Hot Topic Lord for that to work. Probably the only one in the entire game with half a brain cell.

  • his underclassmen would text him and ask him to keep you under control
  • that resulted in a three-minute call
  • “Stop shouting my name in school will ya?”
  • “Hey, it’s either your name or Swaggy Rapper.” the both of you cringed at the nickname and you hear him groan on the other side
  • “I know that you love me lots” you gagged, “but tone it down a bit, please. The boys won’t stop texting me about your loud mouth.”

  • ok there’s this one time where Guanlin showed a photo of you with him

i have zero ideas on who to do next, seriously

strawberrywhaliens  asked:

namjin headcanon for secret sat: consider seokjin feeling down one day bc school is hard and weird and he's a freshman in high school but already he's being told to just focus on grades and nothing else and when he's walking home he passes by this park and suddenly hears a whole bunch of rapping dissing the school system and he looks to see what's going on and there's Namjoon, still in middle school but with a crazy mohawk and hands in the air as he verbally rips apart an imaginary person (1)

and seokjin is just awed while he watches this kid go in an empty park. before he knows it he’s right behind him and when namjoon stops he automatically starts clapping, half scaring the poor guy to death, who never had any idea anyone could hear him at all. and then jin is all up in his face, eyes sparkling, telling namjoon how he’s awesome and that was such a cool rap and how he totally relates to it and namjoon is s o talented to be able to do that and poor namjoon just turns bright red (2)

bc he’s never rapped in front of anyone before or shown them the stuff he’s done but here’s a really cute guy talking about namjoon like he’s actually something special bc of his raps and even saying he LOVED it and namjoon is just really?? flustered?? and afterwards they sit at the park together ralking and joonie talks about his rapping and why he does it and his love for music and jin just soaks it all up and talks about his own tastes in music amd they talk so long it becomes hella dark (3)

so jin is like omg!! you’re still a kid!!! so he sends him home after exchanging contacts and then when jin gets home and hits the bed he gets a text from joon like “got home safely, what about hyung?” and he grins and starts texting back and then they ended up falling asleep messaging each other bc this is basically their first real friendship and over the years jin is namjoon’s #1 fan and supporter even when ppl tell him he should stop rapping and just focus on his grades instead (4)

jin is just always there telling him he can do it and jin believes in him and somewhere along the line joonie falls for this kind and dorky and energetic hyung of his who’s never once given up on namjoon even though he’s obsessed with rap/music or thought namjoon should change in any way and so when jin struggles in school joonie learns the subjects he struggles in to be able to help him and constantly praises seokjin when he can so he knows he’s really absolutely amazing no matter what (5)

and namjoon always buys jin’s fav snacks or new ones he wanted to try out whenever he feels down and goes to the same highschool as him as a surprise, shocking jin even more when he skips another grade to be in the same class as jin after jin tells him he wishes he never had to go to school bc its horrible and they’re just always together, always seokjin and namjoon and nothing else to everybody who knows about them. namjoon makes a cd and sends it to companies to see if anyone will take him (6)

and jin is telling him “they will, they will” but namjoon doesm’t believe him and they’re in their last year of highschool when namjoon hears back from someone and gets a record deal and finally, finally makes his dream come true and becomes a rapper like he’s always wanted to be. the first song he raps is that one from all those years ago in that park, edited and tweaked just a little bit, and he dedicates it to jin. he saves up the money, goes to the first flower he sees and buys a HUGE (7)

bouquet of flowers and heads straight to seokjin’s dorm that he just moved into all alone since namjoon isn’t going to college, drops to his knees right there and tells seokjin he doesn’t have the money or stability or even worth to propose to him right now and ask him to marry him, screw the law, but he will one day and right now he just wants to know if jin will give him the chance to be his boyfriend and jin just laughs and kisses him right there in the dorm hallway with everybody there (8??)

and namjoon becomes famous and makes money and gets them an apartment and jin finishes college and they don’t have legal papers saying they’re married but they’ve got rings and the memories and love to say it for them and that’s all they need. joon dedicates every album to jin and jin is his number one fan always, to the point where not a single one of namjoon’s fans doesn’t know who jin is. (sorry i took so long iT GOT AWAY FROM ME AKSKFK) but like. consider. (9??? who knows anymore sjdkg)

/weeps in the corner/ you.. basically….. wrote a short namjin fic….. /nasty sobbing/

FOR REAL DUDE I’M SO HAPPY THIS GO AWAY FROM YOU?? i love it so much it’s just??? WOW thank you

never gonna be over it…….. i wanna read a full fic

Demi Lovato on dating and disappointment

BBC Music 

Five, four, three, two, one!

Pop star Demi Lovato is doing her best impression of Nasa’s mission control as she records an insert for a forthcoming TV show.

Standing in an alcove of BBC Broadcasting House, as staff mill around with laptops and coffee cups, she’s really giving it some welly - which is impressive considering she has literally no idea what she is counting down from, or to.

“Yeah, I don’t know what that was for,” laughs Lovato as she sidles into a seat to chat about her new album, Tell Me You Love Me.

It’s the 25-year-old’s sixth record since she began her career as a child actress on the TV show Barney and Friends. Since then, she’s starred in Camp Rock alongside the Jonas Brothers, appeared as a judge on The X Factor USA, and become a fierce advocate for anti-bullying and mental health campaigns.

Catfish and the Bottlemen's Van McCann Talks Touring & Having Die-Hard Fans: 'I'm Buzzing Off It'

In the two and a half years since Catfish and the Bottlemen released their debut LP, The Balcony, in September 2014, the U.K.-based band have established themselves as touring workhorses. Aside from releasing another album in May of last year (The Ride), they’ve essentially been on the road nonstop.

​"Any time off we have, we like to fill it with gigs,“ the band’s lead singer Van McCann tells Billboard. "You can’t help but want to no matter where… if there’s fans around a place, we’ll go see them. The idea of stopping tours, waiting a minute, that doesn’t seem right.”

Keeping their constant touring life going, the guys just wrapped a series of shows in South America, which was the first time they’d been to the continent. Even so, they had eager fans awaiting their arrival, with fans in Argentina even greeting them with signs that read, “Catfish and the Argentineans.”

That kind of fanatical reception is what Catfish and the Bottlemen has seen all around the world, a major part of what keeps them excited about being on tour all the time. Ahead of the band setting out on the spring North American leg of their The Ride tour on May 2, Billboard caught up with frontman McCann about their recent international trek, his favorite shows they’ve played, and how Catfish and the Bottlemen’s career has only just begun.  

Did you have any expectations about how South America would go, and did the shows end up meeting those expectations?

That was honestly one of the best tours we’ve ever done. Just seeing people react the way they did to the songs, despite not even speaking all the lingo… it was very flattering and we never expected that. We’d never turned up for the first time and had that kind of response – so many people outside the hotels, outside the venues, it was crazy. They’re just so passionate about music out there, so I think they appreciate any band playing and putting on a show. I’d only heard how good it was going to be, and it was everything I’d heard and more. I’d advise [playing there] to anybody.

What are some differences and similarities that you’ve seen in the crowds in South America, the U.K., and America?

In terms of reception and us playing, it’s always been the same. The people who come to see us get completely behind the band. We love going around the world playing. 24 years old, doing arenas back home, playing around the world, playing America on a big six–week tour – I’m buzzing off it.

I think where we are right now is where we always wanted to be, even before we had a deal, when we were first started being in the band together. We very much wanted this, none of it was a fluke. It didn’t feel like too much was "right place right time” – it was very much banging down doors to get us into this position. That desire just makes you want to keep going, building the fan base and building the shows.

Do you feel like that’s made an impact on the music you’re making and how you’re touring?

I think we were making the first two albums to get us to this point, so I think you’ll see in the next one how excited we are. It’s only been two years since the first one came out, and to be able to go back home and sell out arenas, that’s real exciting for us.

It’s all very humbling. We’ve always dreamt this since we were kids, before we could even play the guitar, and to now get to this point – in August it will be 10 years for us as a band – it’s nice to see this all pay off. We still love what we do and we still have that hunger to keep growing it. To have that amount of people behind us already after two years, internationally, it’s real motivating. We didn’t need any [motivation] anyway, but it just makes you more excited and makes you want to release stuff every six months.

Which songs have you seen connect with fans the most when you perform them live?

I feel like “7,” but I don’t know if it’s because I love playing it: I’d play that song forever if I could. “Cocoon” as well – but the thing with us, and I’ve always loved this, we’ve never had a one-off tune. When you come to a show, you’ll see that they sing the whole album word for word, both albums now. I think we’re at a place where we can properly appreciate it and grab it and run with it. There’s not really a word for it.

It’s kind of like when you’re in a crowd of people, you explain something and you look around and go, “Do you know what I mean?” and the whole room can either say “Yeah, I know what you mean completely,” or they can say ‘"No I don’t have a clue what you’re talking about.“ To be on stage and stand in the middle of an arena and know that everybody knows what you’re saying, it’s a mad feeling.

What have been your personal favorite shows you’ve played?

We played Wembley Arena [last November] – I think that was our biggest show we’d done at the time, and me dad brought me granddad up to see it. He’s about 300 years old, something like 90 now I think. And he stood there in a suit with his arms in the air watching, stood next to me dad, his son, and then watching his grandson, me, on stage, and then the fans react the way they do to the songs. He turns to me at the end of the night and said, “That was the best day of my life.” And I was like, "What? You’ve been alive nearly a couple hundred years! And that’s the best day of your life?” You’re always trying to do your folks proud, do your family proud, so that was a very good feeling to have me granddad to shake my hand and say that.

I loved Governor’s Ball. I got to see The Strokes for the first time and I grew up loving that band. I love playing Dublin, Ireland. I love playing Australia – my mom and dad got married over there, so it’s always a bit of a 360 for me. Back home it’s just beyond the joke, we’re selling out arenas that I grew up watching my favorite bands play; Arctic Monkeys, Oasis. I’m still a fan myself, so I still very much buzz off these bands I’m reelin’ over. To be able to go play in those venues alongside boys you appreciate, it’s a good feeling.

hi! i was wondering if you could write the RFA reacting to seeing MC's baby pictures?

(To answer your second ask, yep it sent properly don’t worry! And no need to apologize, better to send it twice than to have it not go through and just wonder forever. It’s not like it inconveniences me or anything to have an extra ask to delete it’s just one simple click of a button ^^)


  • He loves seeing pictures of you 
  • Selfie exchange sessions are absolutely a thing you guys just sit there showing off your favourite selfies to each other
  • If Zen could use pictures of the two of you as wallpaper he would cover the entire house with them he just
  • he loves them okay
  • When you pulled up some baby pictures for him to see his eyes would light up 
  • He would be laughing and smiling the whole time
  • He call you his cute little prince(ss) Zen shut up
  • He would like to show you some of him too but he doesn’t have any :(
  • Because he ran away from home it’s not like he brought pictures with him 
  • (not that there were very many to bring
  • his brother might have taken a few when he was younger he thinks)
  • He ends up asking his brother if he has any photos of him next time he calls (because they’re trying to work things out now)
  • It’s actually a pretty big deal to Zen
  • He has to prepare himself when he shows you the picture
  • “See? I’ve always been this beautiful~” he teases with a wink but actually he’s so insecure rn???
  • Because Zen was told he was ugly when he was younger he’s still kinda unsure about it like he’s getting over it but what if it’s true
  • He may be an actor but he’s not doing very well at hiding how anxious he is right now please tell him he was pretty
  • You assure him that yes, he is the prettiest child you’ve ever seen (because he really is)
  • And he lights up 
  • And you guys put your baby pictures in one of those collage frames together
  • “Our children would be so attractive”
  • “Our what?!” slow down Zen we’ve been dating for like a month
  • (But seriously if you don’t want kids he’s fine with that too just btw)


  • They’re your baby pictures but he’s the one blushing
  • “MC you were so cute!”
  • “Were?”
  • “Just as cute as you are now!”
  • Nice save
  • Wouldn’t say anything about embarrassing photos (aside from a stifled laugh that you promptly shove him off the couch for) because he’s a sweet cupcake
  • Also because his mom has shared so many embarrassing stories and photos of him with you he knows how you feel
  • He’s low key thinking about kids too though he wants their child to look exactly like baby MC
  • But he wouldn’t say that out loud
  • If it does slip out
  • He would blush
  • “I just mean. You know. Hypothetically. If we did have one”
  • (He’s also fine if you don’t want them btw you’re cute enough for him)


  • You know that cute thing Jaehee does where her eyes sparkle and her entire face lights up and her hand comes up to cover a tiny smile that could outshine the fucking sun
  • She’s doing that
  • You’re so cute
  • When you find a photo album full of old baby pictures she immediately makes you guys a warm cup of coffee (/your drink of choice) and sits down to look at them with you
  • Another person who has little to no baby pictures of herself :(
  • She has like one from before her parents died
  • But she doesn’t even know where it is
  • It’s okay though because she’s not focused on the past she’s just happy to focus on the present and the future
  • Except your past okay your past is precious


  • The first time you show him a picture of you as a baby he’s honestly not all that into it?
  • “That’s lovely sweetheart”
  • He’s not being rude about it and he really is happy that you’re sharing with him
  • if you want to look at babies he’ll put one in you right now is that what you want
  • But then he has to actually take a second when you show him a picture of you at two years old with cat ears and a little cat onesie 
  • This is the cutest thing he’s ever seen someone call 911 he has forgotten how to breathe
  • The real fun starts when you ask him for his baby pictures
  • Baby Jumin Han
  • Most of them are like professionally done family photos 
  • But have you ever seen a one year old in a suit?
  • He’s just so
  • Tiny
  • and cute
  • And now Jumin is blushing because he is not used to being called tiny
  • He is over six feet tall he is not tiny
  • Anyways he may not get the whole nostalgia thing
  • But he sure loves watching you be nostalgic 
  • He spends most of the time with a gentle smile on his face watching as you explain the context and stories behind all of your photos
  • And you sigh in exasperation when his stories in return are “this was taken on january 12 1990 by a photographer in dubai″


  • You’d better hope there’s nothing embarrassing in there
  • Because this boy will not let you live it down
  • Like ever
  • Unless it legitimately upsets you then obviously he’d drop it
  • He would laugh and tease you and make some joking comment like “thank god there are no embarrassing pictures like that of me”
  • (Because do you really think anyone took pictures of him as a baby
  • Yeah I didn’t think so)
  • And he’s joking and grinning at you but you can tell that he’s actually kind of upset about it???
  • To make up for it you two spend the rest of the day taking stereotypical embarrassing baby pictures of him he does all the dumb baby poses and everything he even puts on a baby bonnet (why do you even have that???)
  • He even uses one of those “what would your baby look like” apps and uses two pictures of himself
  • It does not work well
  • “Look MC this is what I looked like as a baby~”
  • “what the actual hell is that monstrosity”


  • His vision has gotten worse so he can’t see very well
  • And he’s starting to get upset about it because he really wants to see these pictures but most of them are just kind of blurry?
  • When you see it’s starting to upset him you take his hand
  • and tell him to get the damn eye surgery and you describe the pictures for him. 
  • You describe where you are and what you’re doing and what you’re wearing while he listens intently and occasionally asks questions
  • He closes his eyes as you talk and paints a picture in his mind
  • “If you were half as cute as I’m picturing then you must have been a little angel.”
  • He doesn’t have to see you to know you’re blushing
  • Would probably help you do that thing where you recreate baby pictures as an adult (you have to do a lot of the work but )
  • Instead of looking like a dumb meme like Seven it ends up looking like a super artistic demonstration of the passage of time and how you’ve changed and stuff??
  • He can’t see but he still has ~*vision*~


  • Saeran doesn’t see the point in baby pictures??
  • Why would you take pictures of babies
  • Memories, Saeran!”
  • Why would you want to remember being a baby
  • He gets kind of into it though
  • You find him later flipping through your photos and smiling to himself
  • He loves the pictures of baby/toddler you smiling or having fun because it makes him happy to think that you had a good childhood
  • he’s a little jealous but mostly happy
  • He wants to know more about some of the pictures (where are you, what were you doing, why is your head inside a fishbowl in this one?)
  • But the idea of asking you embarrasses him because he’s a tsundere little tomato so he just finds the most ridiculous photo and points to it like “what the fuck is this”
  • You explain the whole story to him and when you see how much he seems to like listening to your stories you just kind of 
  • keep going
  • He likes hearing what a normal childhood was like because he honestly has no clue
  • You two end up falling asleep on the couch surrounded by baby photos
  • Saeyoung takes a picture


  • “You look weird”
  • Vanderwood says as their face turns red and they continue to stare at the picture of baby you in a tutu and a tiara
  • so cute?
  • Vanderwood is acting like they’ve never seen a baby before and honestly
  • they probably haven’t??
  • Not like up close anyways
  • The only baby in the agency was Seven Zero Seven
  • You were so soft
  • And squishy
  • And fragile
  • And now you’re like
  • You
  • It’s just pretty fucking neat is all
  • It makes them feel like a desire to protect you even more than they already do
  • Vanderwood doesn’t have any baby pictures to share
  • and there’s no way they were ever that small
  • They don’t mind though they’re perfectly happy to look at yours

anonymous asked:

Hi, I really like your blog. You were the one that hooked me in this ;) I miss so much your shefani science. So, I want to ask you if you ever reconsidered your timeline of when they started, because I'm still shocked that GAABMH was written in August and they started talking in July... That was fast!

Hi! Thanks!!

Welllll…I guess it depends on what you mean by reconsidered and what you mean by started. There is a theory in the fandom (the exact timing varies), that when Blake says he announced he was getting divorced before the season got started he means when they got together to do the first of the season 9 promo. That was done at some point either during or before blinds. Blinds were June 29-30 and July 7-9 and a photo of Gwen with the photographer was posted July 11, but Blake was out of town for a show that weekend so it was earlier. Plus both B & G look considerably less healthy there, while they look pretty good during actual blinds. So that combined with Blake’s schedule during that time makes the photoshoot before blinds seem probable. I was skeptical about the idea that that’s when the bonding happened, until I realized Gwen’s story about him walking up to her chair still absolutely fits because they did the virtual reality stuff in the red chairs.

So yeah, this theory explains a lot of pieces that didn’t make sense to me. For instance: Blake said they started out emailing once a week like “this shit happened to me this week, wbu?” I always thought that was weird bc all of his divorce stuff took place in June. Like maybe M was still fighting with him in July, emotionally or whatever, but for him to have filed and had an expedited process his whole mediation had to be finished by July 3 at the very latest. That’s 4 days after he supposedly told Gwen, so not a lot of time for once a week check-ins to rant about the ex. (And that doesn’t mean he wasn’t still dealing with the fallout but for things actually happening…like events occurring, that would’ve been largely over.)

It also explains why they’re so comfortable with each other in s9 blinds. In s7 even at the end they are flirty and friendly but there’s a nervousness to it that doesn’t exist in s9. Like when Blake tells her “that’s you!” When a rock guy comes on or she sings along with a contestant to him. Or when they flirt over a girl winning. There are so many moments where they seem like close friends.

The other thing about blinds is that Gwen doesn’t seem like she is shaken to her core. She doesn’t seem restless or nervous or upset. She’s very professional but she’s also very emotional and I’m not sure she would’ve been so bubbly if she was panicking over telling someone about her separation.

And then there’s the songs. I’ve had anons try to fight me on this but Gwen has really specific styles when it comes to writing. She writes totally differently when she talking about events that occurred (like don’t speak, ex-girlfriend, 4 in the morning) versus metaphors (bathwater, settle down). I’m not sure how to explain it except to say the lyrics of obsessed wouldn’t be so specific if they weren’t an accounting of something that took place. Meaning regardless of when the emailing happened they were also hanging out during blinds and/or the week after. And in Splash she wouldn’t be so confident and definitive (I’m diving in, we going in it’s what we’re supposed to do) if she didn’t have some proof that the feelings were mutual. She spent two decades writing songs about being insecure in her relationship. To all of a sudden be writing a song that was so self-assured, that’s a big deal and a big indication to me that things between them were progressing. (By the way I mean emotionally. I think physical relationship came a short while later.)

Anyway, then there’s Blake’s album. He’s said he recorded a lot of it over the summer. His producer said that Gwen sat in on pretty much all of those recordings. So for them to be hanging out in front of another person to me suggests they were pretty comfortable by mid-August when the recording took place.

There’s also Jeffery saying they were together when the contestants met them. He probably meant during battles rehearsals, and even if they weren’t actually an established couple they must’ve been close enough and Gwen talked about him as a bf-type enough for Jeffery to conclude they were together (or maybe they were totally together who knows).

Oh also Carson said he knew about a month before it was announced publicly. Totally possible that it was just Blake telling him as a friend, but also possible that mid/late June is when he made his announcement to the show.

So anyway there’s a theory on why it seems like it happened so fast.

Another possibility is that it really was just that fast. They mostly were emailing but they were also hanging out and the whole thing took them from friends to in love in like a month, or less. I personally think it’s totally possible that they knew they were in love after an incredibly short time because of the intense connection they’d always had, combined with having something so deep to bond over.

But if you mean have I reconsidered the August part, then no. Blake sent Gwen his half of the duet on August 26 or 27, and she returned it a couple days later. So Blake wrote his part about them hanging out and him being unsure about where she stood sometime in August, before he got to knockouts, im pretty sure. And, whenever Blake talks about the song, he always talks about her line about using him as if that part really surprised him. He seems unphased by her saying she fell in love, which leads me to believe she had already confessed this.

So take what you want from this, none of it is definite–other than the timing of when Gwen wrote Obsessed & Splash sometime in early to mid-July, and when Gwen got the duet and wrote her verse. Other than that it’s just theories and speculation. I know a lot of people who believe that theory about him telling everyone earlier than June 30, and I tend to believe it for the reasons above. And it doesn’t contradict anything they’ve said other than Gwen throwing out July 7, which makes no sense anyway because according to Blake the entire point of announcing was so no one would talk about Miranda, so why do it halfway through. And Gwen has an amazing ability to answer a question with a response that is not a lie but also not a response to the question presented. But pretty much nothing would surprise me.

Aoi Shouta LIVE 2016 WONDER lab. ~ Bokutachi no sign ~ 2016/03/13 Report

**Please DO NOT repost photos! Thanks
Some photos were from official reports

I compared this a lot with 5th Stage as that’s the only other Japanese Live I’ve been to.
I’m just going to put the whole report in this one post! As always, it’s personal and long! I just have a lot of feelings, maybe a bit too much…

**Edit: SUPER personal, SUPER long.


Buying goods

If you don’t want to read this then you can just skip to the Live part below~
Please try your best to read the whole of the Live part though. I want everyone to experience the same thing as I did after all.

So it’s only the one day for the goods sale which is on the same day as the live. After what happened with 5th Stage sales I decided I’ll go early.

This is the second live I’ve been to in Japan, so never been to Budokan before, it’s pretty impressive with the traditional gate and building. Never took photos of the outside building ^^;

I was meant to be going by myself, but @jeanette-ting managed to win a ticket last minute and contacted me. Thanks for getting in touch! ^^

So by the time we got there, as expected there was a lot of people already queued up, we had to walk pretty far to get to the end, but at least we can tell how far we were from the start. You couldn’t tell with 5th Stage as everyone was all packed together and you had to go downstairs too.

For some reason they were selling the gacchas separately from the other goods??
But I thought, queue up for the goods first as they are the most important then head for gacchas.

I thought the line won’t start moving until 10am, but we did move gradually which was good!

Even though I was prepared and wore more clothes it was still so cold ><
Girl behind me “Ah, Shoutan da, ‘Ohayou…’” SHOUTAN TWEETED?!? *checks twitter* (pretty much my reaction each time)
Ahhh, he’s such a sweet heart telling us to be careful and not catch a cold
(/ _ ; ) thank you~

I noticed there was quite a lot of guys here, more than there was for Utapri. The number of females still outnumbered the guys of course though.

Moved quite a lot and going round the building, this was behind us. Maybe about 10am here

Thank god we came early!!

We heard a few of Shoutan’s songs playing!! Very quiet though. They seem to reaally liked TRUE HEARTS and played it a lot XD

NO WEAK ⇔ YES WEEK!! And it stopped after a few moments… Nande?! 😒

Selling gacchas there in the left shelter, middle was to buy Zessei STARGATE and pre-order S, right one was for joining his fanclub (LET ME JOIN).

Yes finally! The order list!!!
The quality of the paper was really bad? 5th Stage had really nice paper LOL

Things I ordered. (I realised they never gave me the paper back, glad I took a photo for the memory XD)

I actually already decided to buy at least one of each thing even before they announced the line up.
Because it’s Shoutan 😎 the only thing I didn’t get was the black wrist band as I liked the white more.

Why, pessimistic? IS PLAYINGGGG!!!

“White Day”

As requested by @stephicool :) :)

Oh god sorry this is so late don’t hate me D:

     “Whatta ya mean I need to get something for her?” Natsu scoffed and Mira scowled at him, her brows pushing together in frustration.

    “Don’t you want Lucy to know that you care about her?” Mira questioned and Natsu gave her a dubious glance.

   “She already knows I care about her!  We’re partners, best friends, ya know?” Natsu reasoned and leaned back on the bar stool he was seated on.  Mira huffed and crossed her arms, she was going to need to give him more of a push than she had originally thought.

   “What did she get you for Valentine’s Day just a little while ago?” Mira pried and the pink haired boy stared at her blankly.

   “Well, she got me these spicy chocolates, they were pretty good.” Natsu admitted, smiling at the thought.

   “Great!  Now it’s your turn to get her a present!” Mira cheered him on and he rolled her eyes at him.

   “She’s gonna go on a job with Happy and I, that’ll be her present!” Natsu stated and Mira glared at him threatening a Satan Soul takeover right there from behind the bar.  

   “You’re supposed to show that you like her you dummy!” Mira snapped and Natsu fidgeted in his seat.

   “I d-dunno what you’re talking about…  ‘Course I like her, she should know.” Natsu stammered, his cheeks looking as if they were starting to flush.

   “But don’t you loooove her?” Mira giggled, her white hair briefly falling into her face as she leaned forward, teasing the boy.

   “Ugh, you and Happy have been hangin’ out too much apparently.” Natsu shrunk his head down beneath his scarf in embarrassment.  “I’m going for a walk.” Natsu muttered and abruptly shoved himself away from the bar.

   “Remember what I told you!  Today is White Day, don’t you dare disappoint Lucy!” Mira called as he walked towards the guild doors and he shot a scowl back at her.  “That boy better learn something soon otherwise I’ll need to step in full force.” Mira laughed darkly, ignoring the strange looks she received from the few guild members close by.

   “Tch, the hell does Mira know…  Damn Happy, gettin’ in everyone’s head.” Natsu grumbled to himself and walked along the sidewalk, absentmindedly heading towards the center of Magnolia.

   “Sup, flamedork?” Natsu heard a deep voice call from behind him as Gray jogged to catch up to him in all his shirtless glory.


   “What, no insult back?  Geez, you must be thinking.  Now, that’s scary.” Gray ribbed him and Natsu just scowled in response before sighing and responding.

   “What are you doing here anyways?”

   “Gotta get Juvia a present.  Such a pain.” Gray turned his face downward to hide his obviously reddening cheeks.

   “Why are you gettin’ her a present?” Natsu inquired though he already assumed what the answer was.

   “Damn White Day.  Pain in my ass but, it’s the least I can do I guess.” Gray admitted, shoving his hands into his pants pockets.

   “Is it really that big of a deal?” Natsu queried, his mind weighing his options.

   “It is to the girls.  Besides, they did nice stuff for us on Valentine’s Day, right?  It’s only fair to return the favor.  Don’t tell me you weren’t planning on getting something for Lucy?” Gray asked with a scowl at Natsu.

   “I didn’t know it was such a big deal!  Mira’s been going on and on ‘bout it all day.  I didn’t even know the day existed until now!” Natsu cried out and Gray snorted.

   “That’s because you didn’t have girlfriend until now.”

   “Lucy’s not my girlfriend!” Natsu protested and Gray smirked.

  “Hey, who said anything about it being Lucy?”

   “Sh-shut up!  Ya damn ice freak!” Natsu growled and Gray guffawed at his horribly red face.

   “Please, we all know that you guys are basically dating.  In fact, we’ve gotta pool going on about when you two will actually ban-” Gray was cut off by a punch to the face by a flaming fist.

   “Shut the hell up!”

   “What the hell was that for?!” Gray yelped and Natsu glared at him.

   “Don’t act so innocent ya bastard…”  Natsu frowned at the ground, his stomach fluttering for a reason he couldn’t pinpoint but probably knew what it was if he actually put some thought into it.

   “Look,” Gray began as he rubbed the singed bruise that was beginning to form on his face, “All I’m sayin’ is you better get Lucy a present otherwise you’re going to look like a real dick.  I know Juvia and the rest of em have been all hyped up about this damn day so don’t screw it up like you usually do.”  Gray huffed and Natsu continued to find the ground interesting.

   “Yeah, yeah…” Natsu trailed off, keeping pace with Gray along the cobblestone walkway.  He knew that he should get Lucy something, hell, he knew what the whole holiday was about it was just all so awkward to him.  How was he supposed to convey feelings with some stupid little trinket or a box of chocolates?  He wasn’t that type of person and it was making his insides hurt just thinking about the complexity it all had.  Maybe I’m making this more difficult than it has to be?  It’s Lucy so, why am I so nervous….

   Lucy, admittedly, was excited about White Day and, just because she didn’t have a boyfriend didn’t mean she’d be disappointed.  She liked seeing what everyone got from their “special someone”s, it made her happy to see everyone else so excited.  Granted, she had gotten Natsu a present for Valentine’s Day but, she didn’t expect him to actually take the holiday seriously let alone, get her a present.  In fact, the idea made Lucy laugh out loud to herself, Natsu wasn’t that type of guy but, it didn’t bother Lucy too much.  It’s not like they were dating or anything, just good friends.  However, for a while now, she had started to feel a little bit sad at the thought of them being just friends.  They had been through a lot together, she’d seen him almost die and they had saved each other countless times so, maybe she was just starting to think that they were closer because of all of that.  Lucy shook her head, telling her self she was being silly and headed through the heavy cedar doors of the guild.  Guild members were starting to filter in as it got later in the day and Lucy was greeted by the familiar warmth and chatter of Fairy Tail.  It made her smile to herself and head for a seat at the bar where Levy was seated, happily chatting to Mira.

   “Oh, hey, Lu!” Levy waved, her blue hair flipping behind her shoulder and Mira smiled happily at her.

   “Hi, Lucy!” Mira called and Lucy waved back to both of them.

   “Hey guys, what’s up?” Lucy questioned as she sat down and Mira placed a strawberry shake in front of her.

   “Oh, nothing, nothing at all.” Mira answered her mischievously and Lucy immediately felt threatened.

   “Uh oh…  That doesn’t sound good, what do you have planned?” Lucy asked into her cup but she knew Mira was doing her scary, scheming smile.

   “Uhm…  Oh, hey!  Lu, look what Gajeel got me!  I know, you’re probably surprised that he actually got me something but, it is pretty nice.” Levy held up her right hand and sheepishly displayed a beautifully crafted iron ring with the word ‘iron’ scribed into it, a heart in place of the ‘o’.  “He made it himself…”

   “Whoa!  That’s amazing!  And so adorable, aw Levy, he’s the sweetest!” Lucy exclaimed, grasping her smaller hand and examining it in awe.

   “Hehe, I’m sure he’d love if you called him ‘sweet’, Lu.” Levy giggled and Lucy sighed and smiled, at least everyone seems happy.

   “Ooh!  Ooooh!” Mira started squealing and Lucy turned her attention back at her white haired friend instead of her milkshake.

   “What?  What?”  Lucy asked as Mira seemed to be having a minor attack of….  Excitement?  But, Mira didn’t answer so, Lucy followed her gaze and found Natsu walking into the guild hall.  “Why are you freaking out over Natsu?” 

   “Ah, Lucy, I bet he has a surprise for you!” Mira squealed and Lucy felt her cheeks heat up.

   “Yeah, okay.” Lucy replied sarcastically though her heart fluttered slightly.  But, to her surprise, Natsu strode quickly up to her, his face plastered with his usual, toothy grin.

    “Hey, Luce!” He waved and greeted her warmly.

    “H-hey, Natsu.” Lucy stuttered out; she could hear Mira squealing behind her like an excited little mouse and Levy looked at them wide eyed and ready.

   “I have somethin’ for ya.  Since you’re so nice and all.” He smirked and from behind his back he produced a leather bound album.  “Here ya go!” He proudly handed it to her and Lucy looked down at it in puzzlement.

   “What is it?” Lucy questioned curiously.

   “Just open it ya weirdo!”  Natsu urged and she smiled, laughing slightly, and opened it.  Lucy found herself staring at lettering, obviously scrawled by Natsu, that spelled out “Adventures of Natsu and Lucy!”.  As she flipped through the pages, each one held a snapshot of her and Natsu with a description captioning each, in detail, about what job they were on or what they were doing that day.  It almost brought tears to Lucy’s eyes, her breath caught in her through.  Each page held the memories of their time at the guild and together as friends.

   “It’s so you can remember all the stuff we did together in case one day I actually get nabbed while fightin’ one of these days.” Natsu smiled, a low chuckle forming in his throat.

    “Natsu!  Don’t say such awful things!” Lucy cried out but then her gaze softened and suddenly they were blurred by tears.  “Thank you so much, Natsu…  I love it.”

   “Y-yeah, you’re welcome-  H-hey!  Why are ya crying?” Natsu yelped and began rubbing her arms trying to comfort her.

   “I-it’s just….  Sorry, this is just really sweet, Natsu.  I’m really happy.” She smiled and hugged the album close to her chest.

   “Well, you’re welcome, weirdo.” Natsu snickered and placed a hand on top of her head.  “Oh, and there was one more thing…”  Natsu sighed as if it was taking a lot out of him to utter the sentence.

   “Wha-” Lucy began to ask but was then suddenly cut off by Natsu quickly pressing his lips to hers.  As quickly as it happened, it ended, and Lucy felt her head spinning in confusion or excitement or a mix of both, she wasn’t sure.  Guild mates gasped and she heard Mira’s strangled choke of excitement and Levy yelling about some bet she won but, all Lucy could focus on was Natsu.

   “Wha-  Why-  How-?”  Lucy stammered and Natsu, with cheeks red and uncertainty in his eyes, gazed down at her and smiled.

   “Happy White Day, Luce.”

I really, really hope you like it!  Thanks for the request!  Even though it’s like over two months late!

Ashton Imagine: You Meet Oli at a Bring Me the Horizon Concert

Author: Rhine


You let the music wash over you, the drums shaking your bones, the bass resonating in your skin. You could feel your ears start to feel numb and your voice start to scratch from all the screaming you’ve done that night, but you’re having too much fun to care. You can feel the sweat on your body clinging onto your shirt, streaming down your face and threading your hair, though in the strobe lights it made you look like you were glowing. 

You feel a familiar set of arms encircle your waist, his own sweat-drenched shirt clinging onto yours, though you weren’t complaining. You turn back to look up at your boyfriend, his skin just as sticky with sweat as when he’s on stage himself; his bandana holding down damp, curly tufts of hair with a smile as bright as the stage lights on his face.

“Having fun, babe?” He shouts into your your ear, but it translates into a soft murmur in your concert-broken eardrums.

“This is the best night ever!” You yell back at him, turning up to look at him, beaming. 

Ashton had just come back from touring, and managed to secure two tickets to the concert of your favourite band - after 5SOS, of course - Bring Me the Horizon. 

You had been looking forward to the concert all week, shaking so much with excitement that you nearly barreled into Ashton when he came to pick you up earlier that night.

Someone’s excited to me, he had grinned, dimples and all.

Yeah, but not as excited to see five other guys tonight, you had teased, winking cheekily at him.

Ashton merely ruffled your hair and put his hand securely on your waist, guiding you to the concert arena. 

You better not run off to be their groupie after the show, he had growled playfully. Remember, you’re already mine.

You stuck your tongue out at him, too excited to be seeing your favourite band - second favourite band, he’d remind you - too jittery from excitement to pay too much attention to anything else.

And the show was incredible. 

When the boys came onstage, you thought you’d lose your mind. You shrieked and grabbed Ashton’s shirt, jumping up and down while he merely smiled at you, laughing.

When they started playing their songs, you could hardly believe it - seeing them in person, so close to where you were, hearing the songs that you had heard so many times through your speakers or headphones live in person. It was surreal - the way the music weaved through your body and your bones, the bass and words waking something up inside of you that must’ve been asleep all this time.

You felt so alive, seeing the crowd move in all different directions, thousands of pitches of voices singing along to every lyric - being a part of it all. 

You were jumping and screaming, hair flying in all directions as you shouted the lyrics you loved at the top of the lungs. And when you got tired, you rested in Ashton’s arms - sticky skin clinging onto each other, hands wrapped around you like he’d never let go - hearing how his heartbeat matched the rhythm to every single song.

And when the show ended, you were breathless but still running on adrenaline with a camera roll full of blurry pictures and shaking videos of you and Ashton and the band from your seat. 

Slowly, the crowd started to file away, the band having already disappeared backstage after one last song to end the night.

You and Ashton were one of the last ones to leave, the backstage crew already coming out to clean the stage and the seats.

“Ready to go, babe?" 

Ashton smiles brightly at you, dimples showing and eyes glowing from the magic that was the show. His hair is messy, loose curls clinging onto his forehead and shirt glued to his stomach from the sweat - you’re sure you look the same. 

"Yeah - everyone else is already gone." 

You lace your fingers with his, and make your way to the nearest exit.

The two of you are almost out the door when you hear a shuffling from the stage and turn to look back, only to see none other than Oliver Sykes himself - the lead singer of Bring Me the Horizon. The tattoos and messy hair was a dead giveaway. 

He didn’t seem to notice the two of you, but your jaw drops and you tug Ashton back to the stage, despite his feeble protests.

"Why are you pulling me, women - oh.”

The two of you stopped in front of the stage, still unnoticed by Oliver, who seemed to be looking for something.

“Hi, um - Oliver?” You squeaked out, partially from your hoarse voice and partially from your nervousness of seeing the band’s singer just mere meters away from you. You could see every intricate detail of the ink on his skin, clearer than any picture that you’ve seen through the internet. 

He whips around, shocked that the two of you were still there. “Um, hello?”

“I just wanted to say - um, I actually - I just really, er - ” You fumble around with your words, not quite sure what it was you really wanted to say. Frankly, you didn’t plan this far ahead - you saw him there and wanted to say a hello, and then completely blanked out about what would happen next.

You never thought you would get to meet the Oliver Sykes, let alone talk to him.

“What she means to say is that she’s a really big fan of yours and she loves your music.” Ashton covers for you before you end up looking like a loser. “Like, a lot.

You nod enthusiastically at Ashton’s words, smiling at Oliver brightly without trying to shake too much.

“Is that so?” Oliver smiles slightly at you.

“Yeah - I’ve been listening to you guys since the beginning and I’ve loved you guys for so many years. I’ve got practically all your albums and all your songs on my phone.” You manage to squeak out, all your words jumbling out in a rush from your nervousness. 

“You guys are my favourite - ” You start to say before Ashton nudges you painfully in the side, “ - second favourite band.”

You smile brightly at him, casually smacking Ashton on the chest as you do.

“Who’s got your number one spot?” Oliver asks, grinning at the two of you.

“This loser’s band.” You pull at Ashton’s cheek, watching him squirm. “I’m obligated to love them because I love him.”

“That’s how you get the best fans.” Oliver winks at Ashton, and he laughs. 

“I got lucky with this girl.” Ashton grins, rubbing his sore cheek. “I’m Ashton, by the way. From 5 Seconds of Summer.”

He extends a hand and Oliver takes it, shaking it firmly. 

“I knew you looked kind of familiar, kid. Oliver Sykes. You might know me, I just played this awesome show.”

You and Ashton laugh, and you feel Ashton’s hand snake around your waist, his long fingers hooking onto one of your belt loops.

“Oh, trust me, I know. This girl has so many posters and pictures of you that I’m starting to forget that I exist." 

"Ash!” You bump his hip playfully.

“What’s your name, love?” Oliver asks you, his eyes friendly. 

You introduce yourself, and he shakes your hand - you touched his hand! - smiling at you.

“A beautiful name for a beautiful girl like you.” He says, his accent sweeping you off your feet. “I’m lucky to know I have such wonderful fans like you.”

You blush tomato red and look at your scuffed shoe, mumbling something incoherent about albums and music.

“Anyways, we’re sorry for bothering you.” Ashton says apologetically.

“Nah, I was just looking for a bracelet I dropped during the show.” Oliver waves his hand nonchalantly. “Must’ve swung off my hand while I was playing or something.”

“We can help you look for it, if you want.” You offer, biting your lip. Truthfully, you weren’t quite ready to leave yet, and you still were still a bit starstruck over seeing Oliver.

“Sure, why not.” Oliver grins. “Come on up - my eyes are getting a bit rusty anyways.”

You and Ashton hop onstage eagerly, waiting for instructions.

“Well, it’s thin and braided and brown - might be a bit hard to find, so don’t be discouraged if you don’t see it.” He explains.

The two of you nod and start looking around - or rather, exploring the stage. You wander to the edges of the stage, peeking backstage to see if you could the rest of the band with no luck. 

While you quietly snooped around creepily, Ashton came up from behind you and squeezed your sides, causing you to jump and yelp, which made Oliver turn around in surprise.

“Ashton!” You whisper-yell, hitting him on the arm as you felt your cheeks heat up. From the corner of your eye, you can see Oliver smile at the two of you before continuing his hunt.

Ashton gives you the puppy dog eyes before laughing. 

“It’s cute how you think others can’t tell that you’re clearly snooping around.” He whispers in your ear, causing the hairs on your neck to stand up.

“I’m not snooping around!”

“Well you aren’t doing a very good job of looking for this bracelet.”

“Shut up, Ashton!”

“If you wanted to collect a piece of his hair I could always pluck one out for you.”

You smack him on the arm again, and he bounds off playfully, giggling to himself.

After a few more moments of looking around, your feet nudges something strange - upon closer inspection, it turns out to be a worn, braided bracelet - just like Oliver had described.

“I think I found it!” You exclaimed excitedly, bounding back to the two boys, who were staring at you.

You held up the thin braid for them to see. “Is this it?”

“Yeah - thank you!” Oliver grins widely, reaching out to take the bracelet from your hands before pausing, his hands stopping in its tracks. 

“You know what, why don’t you keep it?” He says after a moment of consideration. “Think of it as a thank-you gift for being such an amazing fan.”

“Are you serious?” You gape at him, eyes wide. It was clearly no Tiffany bracelet with its worn and frayed edges, but it was a bracelet from Oliver Sykes. That he wore

“Yeah, definitely.” Oliver smiles at you. “Finders keepers, anyways.”

“Whoa, thank you so much!” You beam, and before you can stop yourself, you have your arms swung around his neck, engulfing him in a tight hug. It takes a moment for you to realize your spontaneity - you practically jumped on the poor boy - but you merely grin to yourself when you hear Oliver laugh and feel him hug you back.

“Any more moves like that and I might just lose her for good, man.” Ashton sighs loudly, shaking his head as some loose curls bounce around his head.

“Don’t worry - if she runs off, I’ll have her delivered to you, free of shipping charges.” He jokes as you punch Ashton lightly in the arm, giving him a quick peck on his cheek to rid his face of his childish pout.

“Um.. one more thing?” You ask timidly before you and Ashton turn to leave, bouncing on your heels nervously. “Can I have your autograph?”


You and Ashton finally left the arena a full hour after the show ended, a new bounce in your steps, Oliver’s bracelet tied securely on your wrist, a dozen photos of you and Olver and Ashton on your phone, a CD signed with a cute memo - for the sweetest fan I’ll ever meet and her curly boyfriend whom she should not forget because he’s alright too - and the brightest beam on your face.

“Looks like you got the most out of that concert, didn’t you?” Ashton eyes your gleeful steps and permanent smile etched on your face.

“It was the best nice ever!” You enthused, practically dancing on the streetlights that you passed by. “We jammed out and met Oli and I got a bracelet and an autograph and a bunch of pictures and oh my god, is this all a dream?”

“You’re cute when you fangirl.” Ashton laughs at your loopy form, the dim streetlamps weaving strands of light in your hair that matched the sun in your smile.

“What, you aren’t jealous that I’m fangirling over a band member that isn’t you?” You teased, jumping off the streetlamp and staring at Ashton, a smirk on your lips. 

“No, because I can give you something better.” He grins, something mischievous in his eyes. 

“And what’s that?” You tease.

“This.” Ashton presses his lips to yours, his hands gently cupping your face. You feel yourself lean back a little at his sudden movement, but he stables you with his sturdy hands, and you can feel him smiling in your kiss.

When he pulls away, you’re left dazed and breathless, running on more adrenaline than you were before. His hazel eyes are so close you can almost see the flecks of gold from the streetlamp shining into them, a hint of childish mischief in them.

“I can also give you some excellent post-concert waffles, if that counts for anything.” He whispers, voice breathy.

“You had me at waffles.” You murmur, still dazed. “You sure know the way to my heart, Irwin.”

“Like no other man.”

“Shut up and give me some waffles.”

He laughs and throws you over his shoulder despite your shrieks, his laughter mixing with yours as he runs to the nearest all-day breakfast store for a midnight snack. 

Needless to say, it was one of the best days you’ve every had.


request tweets, imagines, & gifs here!

I'm Here. ~Sunggyu ~ ✷

Request: hi! please write an infinite scenario where i comfort Sunggyu because he was feeling down because he took the teasing of the members to heart. and please add that he gets drunk at some bar and i have to pick him up and take care of him thanks! :) HAPPY BIRTHDAY BY THE WAY!! :)

Comments: So basically my heart broke when I heard Sunggyu speaking about this…. because he just doesn’t deserve something like this at all. So, I got a little emotional with this request, I guess, since Sunggyu means so much to me. I really hope you like it because it’s probably a favorite of mine. Thanks for requesting & thanks for the birthday wish~        

“Where is he?”

         All the members fell silent as soon as the question left your lips. They awkwardly shuffled in their places and looked down at the ground, not bearing to meet your eyes.

         At the sight of this, you grew more worried and even more furstrated. “Where is he?” you asked a little more forcefully. “Guys, I know something is going on here, but the only thing I want to know is where Sunggyu is. Please, someone just tell me where is he!” Your voice cracked at the end, since by now the tears had already completely built up now and were ready to fall.

         For the entire day, Sunggyu hadn’t called, texted, or communicated with you at all, which was completely out of the ordinary. No matter how busy he was, he always found time to check in with you, since he always worried over you so much. He practically couldn’t go to sleep at night without being sure that you were safe and healthy.

         But today was different. He didn’t contact you at all, and that made you nervous. Every time you tried to call or text him, he didn’t answer either, and that made you even more nervous.

         The one thing above anything else that Sunggyu usually did was call and say ‘I love you’ every night before you went to bed. Every single night; no excuses.

         When you didn’t receive his call, you knew something was wrong.

  • <Jack White> lots of things in the works on that, stay tuned and don't be worried
  • <Aly Fava> I think Tidal is a noble cause, I don't understand the backlash that it's getting.
  • <Jack White> there's a lot of misinformation about music in the last decade, people know that it costs a lot of money to make a super hero movie, but they don't know that it costs millions to make a country album too
  • <LazyDynamite> Will the release of Tidal help TMR grow as a company?

  • <Keke> thank you for being an advocate for all musicians, not just the ones who have made it.

  • <AmyPresley520> What are some of your favorite artists on Tidal that we can check out?
  • <Jack White> i want to get all of tar's music on tidal, so those songwriters and musicians can get their songs to a bigger audience (remember most of those artists don't get radio airplay) and i want them to get paid royalties for their songs too so they can live
  • <LazyDynamite> How big of game changer do you think Tidal will be?
  • <Jack White> it's about educating everyone. it could make a difference just like tmr has made in the vinyl world in that last 6 years, it starts with people who think music is sacred and beautiful.
  • <AmandaRae> I think Tidal is great for the fact that it will get more money to artists. After reading how little Pharrell from Pandora streaming off of one of "Happy." Really made me realize how little musicians just starting out must be making, when Pharrell only made $2700 off of something like 43 million plays
  • <Jack White> yep, whoever started the model of making a website get paid by big advertisers (youtube) and not pay that money to the artists GENERATING the interest, makes no sense to an artist trying to survive
  • <AmyPresley520> I totally understand wanting to help out smaller artists. My musicians buddies are all struggling.
  • <Jack White> but also bigger artists, medium artists, whatever, if PSY gets viewed 2 billion times and makes a couple grand, where did all his money go?
  • <Jack White> it's also very important to buy real records from artists you love when they are on tour, that but gas in our tanks when we were struggling,
  • <Professor J> Kudos on the Tidal release. For people who are upset over paying more for exclusive content through Tidal and not through the vault probably don't understand the extra financial obligation there would be to hosting such files/services on site. I like the idea of this both for TMR as an entity and for the artists who get hosed via other streaming services.
  • <Jack White> stay tuned, lots of things in the works i can't relay yet...
  • <macwacky> is the Reason the RRS never ventures into Long Island is because our traffic is legendarily so bad that it couldn't choogle?
  • <Jack White> @macwacky it's far away man!
  • <Jinxy’sDelight> are you stretching youself too thin lately?
  • <Jack White> always have, what else is new? haha
  • <Eketelle> What do you want to be when you grow up!?
  • <Jack White> just like you.
  • <Katie Kaz> I saw OJ at the Magic Stick last night. Fantastic show. Great venue. A lot of good memories/shows there. Any thoughts on its upcoming change over to an electronic music venue?
  • <Jack White> well they got to go with the flow
  • <Kevin Ringgenberg> Is this the Tigers year?
  • <Jack White> hell yeah you know it.
  • <Tony DeGenaro> boring question: what is your favorite venue in Detroit?
  • <Jack White> masonic temple.
  • <MaWaiDu> Jack, did all the artists from Tidal get along?
  • yes we did. we spent all last night talking and discussing ways to make it very cool. here's the shocker : musicians want you to hear their music in the best possible
  • <Jack White> way
  • <Jack White> ways
  • <Jack White> we mix on very nice speakers and systems only to have 90% of it be heard on tiny components that cut out half the information
  • <MrBigStuff> will you ever meet RobJones?
  • <Jack White> @MrBigStuff no.
  • <Yepsen> Any largely unknown artists we should be looking for on Tidal?
  • <Jack White> i hope tons. i want tons of obscure albums that haven't been digitized to be on there too. loretta lynn recorded something like 90 albums! how many can you acquire or stream digitally? 4? 6? where are the other 80+?
  • <Aly Fava> Which is why I find it interesting that you listen to your music playback in your car when you're working on records, or so I read.
  • <Jack White> digital in the car, vinyl in the bedroom
  • <Jack White> baby
  • <Mallory McClain> was the Nashville show with Loretta Lynn filmed? I'd love to have a DVD of that night
  • <Jack White> maybe....
  • <KatieKat> why are you so sexy?
  • <Jack White> i am just as god made me.
  • <Professor J> Does Tidal have any plans for supporting independent artists? I hear that services like Youtube will soon be wiping away independent artists vids etc. or they will be charging them to host their content....soomething to that effect anyway...
  • <Jack White> lots of ideas, but you KNOW i'm all for independent artists getting heard.
  • <Jack White> you have to understand something interesting; when we do a 45, just a single, with an unknown artist at tmr, it's a big investment in production and manufacturing. how do you get people to listen and buy that record so they artist can stay afloat? you can't get radio play for them, so that's why streaming is an interesting way to turn people on to unknown music.
  • <bloomooks> It was so special seeing you with Loretta onstage! So happy to have been there. I just read her autobiography
  • <Jack White> oh yeah.
  • <MaWaiDu> Jack, I have to speak to 200 highschoolers today about leadership, anything I should mention?
  • <Jack White> respect the people you are leading. they are as smart as you, they just need motivation and a central person directing the game.
  • <ry3313> jack have you considered adding an extra tier to the vault that includes tidal at a slight discount
  • <Jack White> patience....
  • <EJ Kopec> Tidal is a bit ellitest to be talking about the little guy in the music industry no?
  • <Jack White> what is elitist about it?
  • <Jack White> who's speaking for the little guy?
  • <MaWaiDu> jack, it's because everyone has gotten used to free and cheap
  • <Jack White> should movies be free too? how about food?
  • <kawhite> Jack did you enjoy your time in Brasil? Thank you so much again
  • <Jack White> i loved brazil are you kidding?

I'm sooooo pissed off right now

I know everyone already told their opinion about the fucked up mess on twitter involving Liam, but I still want to say something about it. I just can’t find the words to tell you that I’m so extremly disappointed and angry. I feel so bad for everyone.

First off I feel bad for Liam, because he is always so nice to everyone. He compliments someone who is in this celebrity world, but still makes time for his family and runs a show. (I have no idea who this guy Liam is talking about is so I’m not going to say anything about him) and everyone fucking losses their shit, because apparently Liam has said that he is homophobic and he doesn’t like homo’s. People say he’s rude and mean and he should kill himself and he’s not worth to be in the band and all that kind off crap. HOW DARE YOU. If he can’t have an opinion than you surely can’t have one. And he NEVER EVER said that he’s homophobic EVER. And if you have read the tabloids and believed what it said and send Liam hate than you’re an awful fan. How can you believe that bullshit and don’t even bother to read what Liam actually has said. I just can’t understand how people send hate to other people and don’t feel guilty about it. Poor Liam googled himself. HE GOOGLED HIMSELF. HAVE YOU NEVER WATCHED THE DOCUMENTARY WHERE HARRY GOOGLES HIMSELF?! DIDN’T YOU SEE HOW MUCH HE WAS HURT. HOW CAN YOU PUSH THE LIMITS SO FAR THAT LIAM GOOGLES HIMSELF! WHAT KIND OFF FAN ARE YOU!! I’m so mad I can’t even tell you. I just want to hug Liam and tell him that everything is going to be okay.

Second, I feel bad for Tyler. I feel bad because he apparently thought Liam was homophobic and got disappointed and send him a tweet about it. Of course that was stupid, but we all make mistakes. If a celebrity that you’re a fan of send a tweet that looks like he’s homophobic and you’re gay than that hurts. So I get that his first reaction was to defend himself and other gay people. Of course it was a wrong tweet, but I think it’s very brave to defend other people even if that means you have to have an other opinion than your celebrity. It was a misunderstanding and Tyler apoligized for it. AND HOW THE F*CK DARE YOU TO TELL OTHER PEOPLE TO LEAVE THE FANDOM. ARE YOU THE BOSS OF THE FANDOM? NO. YOU CAN’T JUST TELL PEOPLE TO ‘LEAVE THE FANDOM’. IF YOU TELL PEOPLE TO LEAVE THE FANDON THAN MAYBE YOU’RE THE ONE THAT SHOULD LEAVE.

And last but not least I feel bad for all the ‘fans’ and people that send hate to eachother, Liam, Tyler or anybody else. You must be so fucking stupid that it must be hard for you to live on this planet. I’m so sorry that you think people can’t have an opinion especially when it’s not your opinion. I’m sorry that you have to send other people hate for what? To make you feel better? To tell your opinion? To make other people feel bad? I don’t know what kind off monkey lives inside of your head. It’s so lame to send people hate over the internet. That is so pathetic that I can’t even explain it. I don’t know if you know what an opinion is. But it is someone’s thought about a certain thing, spoken by themselfs. Last time I checked, tabloids don’t speak for Liam. So if you want to send your opinion to Liam about his opinion than you first should read HIS opinion. And if all you fucking morans would have did that than you would have read that Liam NEVER EVER said something about that he’s homophobic or that he agrees with everything that that man says.

So that’s my opinion. I hope that all the people who have send hate feel bad. ‘Cause Liam is sad, disappointed and is being told of today because he can’t say these things. He can’t even have an opinion and that is very hard, I think. He can’t even defend himself or explain himself without being told of. I feel so sorry for him. I still love him and I still love Tyler. It was a misunderstanding that now has developed in some kind off war and everyone is hurt. I hope you people all feel good about yourself, but I think we won’t hear One Direction’s opinion ever again.

And that, lady’s and gentlemens is how you create distance between fans and their celebrities.
