zack merrick being in love with jack barakat


Exactly one year ago today I saw ATL live. Seeing them again in a week. I’m happy.


hey guys i’m not back and i don’t know if i’ll be coming back, but i just wanted to share with you what happened to me the other night. on july 23rd, 2017 i attended the young renegades tour and i met all time low. i met the band that saved my life and i finally got to tell them that. when i told them about how much they helped me, alex pulled me into a hug and said “i’m proud of you babe, thanks for sticking around” and then later that night during missing you alex pointed at me, and sang “don’t lose your fight kid” right to me and jack and i had a couple different moments together; from singing together to him picking me to come up on stage for time-bomb. i owe so much to them i love them so much they gave me happiness when i didn’t think i would find it, they pulled me out of the darkest depths, and i finally got to explain it to them and live my dream of meeting them and being on stage for time-bomb. thank you so much all time low for everything you do for me, i love you

I should clarify that I love All Time Low, that is a constant. I’m extremely proud that they’ve got to where they are, it’s so incredibly deserved. But I do miss the old All Time Low that were a huge pain in the ass to interview and were just out to piss about and do what they love. Jack was constantly taking his t-shirt off and being a dumb fucker. Jack picking up, touching and being overly affectionate to the other guys wasn’t overly analysed. Alex was a young guy with big dreams that were unravelling in front of his eyes and he was so in love with his fans. There were packs of fans who supported Lisa Ruocco. Rian was a smiley, smiley boy with a squishy adorable aesthetic we all died for. Who even was Zack Merrick? Just too cute. In the corner on his skateboard or some shit being multi talented and amazing while Jack hurt himself trying to have the lime light. Why did Jack do the Macarena? I don’t fucking know.

“Jack and I are going to have sex. If anyone wants to join, hit us up. Uh, oh. I see some parents back there like "oh hell NAWWW” but you know what? Everyone has a little sexual side to them. Even your parents. After all….they did make you-“ Alex Gaskarth

You and Michael get in a car accident together

This is inspired by Miles Teller’s almost fatal car accident

You and Michael are driving home from the Warped Tour and you’re extremely hyper.

“It was awesome!” Michael yells, making you laugh.

“That was the best thing ever, oh my god” you yell back. You two just can’t stop yelling, you had so much fun but still have a ton of energy left and you need to let it out.

“We’re definitely doing it again” Michael says, calming down a bit.

“Totally” you agree, tying up your hair because the open window next to you is making it go in your face. Michael starts to slow down the car because there’s some traffic.

“Oh, come on!” he groans.

“Just take the other lane” you suggest. Michael does as he’s told, but another car speeds down that lane right in that moment, not caring about Michael, who had his turn signals on. To avoid getting hit, Michael swerves abruptly, making him lose control over the car for a just a second, which, sadly, is enough to make it crash against the guard rail and send the car flying down the hill the street was on. You can’t stop thinking that people die like this and you almost don’t realize that it’s happening to you. The car tumbles down seven, maybe eight times before it comes to a stop.

When you open your eyes, you’re lying on the grass thirty feet from the car. You probably went flying from the window, but you can’t really remember. It was all too messy. The car is a wreck, but from your spot in the grass – which you now notice is tinted red from all the blood you’re losing, but you don’t process the fact that you’re bleeding – you can see the door open with some difficulty.

“Y/N?” Michael yells, holding his left forearm to his chest and scanning the area around the car to find you.

“Michael” you say, trying to be as loud as you can. Right now, you’re not in pain but in your confusional state you’re aware that it’s probably just the shock and soon you’re gonna start hurting like a bitch.

Michael spots you and unsteadily walks to you, stumbling every now and then. He kneels next to you, wincing a little. He brings his right arm to his head and squeezes his eyes, groaning.

“Fuck” he whispers, then looks at you, opening his mouth a little.

“How are you?” you ask, trying to sit up a little so you can see him better.

“Don’t sit, Y/N. You’re hurt really bad and fucking hell, there’s so much blood”

“I’m not” you shake your head and try to move to show him, but your legs won’t respond. “Michael, I can’t feel my legs” you cry, starting to grasp what just happened. You also start to feel kind of faint, probably from all the blood you’ve been losing.

“It’s gonna be okay, I promise” he says, starting to tear up too. At this point he lays next to you, still cradling his left arm. “I’m gonna be sick, oh god”. That’s pretty much when you black out.

Kind of like a movie, you wake up in a hospital bed with a doctor stitching up some cuts on your abdomen.

‘Michael’ is the first thought that runs through your mind as soon as you adjust to the bright lights.

“How’s Michael?” you croak. The doctor looks up at you and smiles.

“Welcome back! Y/N, I need to ask you a few questions”.

As you answer the dumb questions – things such as what’s your name, and your birthday, how old you are and where you live – you can’t stop feeling anxious. You can almost feel the physical weight on your stomach at the thought of Michael – but that’s probably just the enormous amount of stitches they gave you.

“Now, how’s Michael?” you shift in your bed, trying to sit up. Everything hurts and you wince in pain, letting out a big groan.

“Michael is in surgery right now. He suffered a severe concussion and both of the bones in his left forearm are broken”. You nod, trying to calm down. You tell yourself that everything is going to be fine, just like Michael told you. “But, unless there’s some complication in the surgery to fix his arm, he should be fine”. You let out a big sigh, sinking in the bed and closing your eyes. The weight on your stomach feels lighter now. “As to you, you suffered more severe injuries than Michael, but you’re going to be fine as well. You got out of surgery a couple of hours ago, so you should probably get some rest” the doctor says, before he leaves and you fall asleep, feeling a lot reassured now that you know Michael’s fine and is being taken good care of.

When you wake up there’s another bed in the room. You turn your head and notice Michael laying there staring at the ceiling. His head is half bandaged up and has a white cast covering his arm. You notice a few stitches on his face and neck, covered with white band aids.

“Michael” you call, feeling incredibly happy that he’s okay and next to you.

“Y/N, oh my god, you’re awake”. You both break into big smiles and your hands reach for each other. Your fingers barely brush when you have to take your arm back because it hurts too much. “I love you so so much and I’m so sorry” he cries softly. “I was so scared”.

“I love you too” you sob, rubbing your hand in front of your eyes. “I thought we were gonna die” you keep crying.

“I’m sorry”

“It’s not your fault, Michael” you tell him, trying to comfort him even though you needed some comforting yourself.

“I love you so much and I swear to God I’ll pay extra care to protecting you from now on”.

“I’m so glad you’re okay” you whisper, genuinely happy that he’s fine. “I don’t know what I would do without you”. Michael just nods and to you, his silence is louder than a million voices. You know what he wants to say, he doesn’t need to say it.


a lot of stuff has happened lately :o like, i’ve been to an all time low gig exactly a week ago and IT WAS FUCKING AWESOME and omg i high fived jack and had the signing pass SO THEY WERE HALF A METER AWAY FROM ME OMFG and one of my friends went on stage :O i’m still shocked lol

plus, i’m turning sixteen tomorrow yaaas

okay, bye. i love you all for your feedback, thank you so much for being so nice to me all the time



One week ago today was a GREAT day, and all thanks to All Time Low Hustlers. I’m so happy I “officially” became one because thank to that I got to meet these amazing people and experienced THE HELL OF A CONCERT 🎶🎶🎉🎉on the first row. Let’s face it, not being in the U.S. or UK leaves the rest of us less opportunities to see our favorite bands live. I had almost waited for 5 years for this moment and it was SO WORTH IT. Also Madrid hustlers gave the hell of a show, because we know how to and the band loved it 😌😁
Thank you ATL I will never forget it!

  • What she says: I'm fine
“bands and musicians don’t normally last more than a few years”

Hey excuse me all time low have been together for 12 years and I bet they haven’t even given a thought about breaking up, they just love being in the music industry and making music and people happy. Tbh they’ll probably still be in the band when they’re at their own funeral.

PSA to All Time Low Fandom

YOU ALL NEED TO CALM DOWN. Why is it that every time there is one little incidence people have to jump over board and cause a commotion?! This wasn’t even about the band but a text post! It’s freedom of speech!! You have NO RIGHT to be targeting someone because you disagree with what they’re posting. This is tumblr and this is the internet where people can say whatever they want. The post wasn’t even malicious, the fan was being genuine in her post. Everyone just jumps on the bandwagon to attack someone else.

I don’t see people getting this worked up when someone is harassing Lisa out of spite or making Jalex jokes. This fandom took Jalex overboard and now it makes the guys uncomfortable. Don’t you understand that taking things out of proportion like this HURTS the band and not those you’re focusing on? This bandom should be united because we all have a love for All Time Low. Not divided over petty bullshit. Grow up kids.
