I just want people to remember that there is happy in this story. Somewhere. If you look hard enough.
What’s that quote about it being important for them to be happy now because they will be sad later?
But just think of all the fun times they’re going to have ahead of them. Karaoke and graduation and being sober for a year…
A/N This chapter takes place before the events of Memory and Film. This chapter is on Friday, January 16th. A week later, Halla comes home from Cambridge and M&F happens on January 23rd and 24th. The next chapter of A Year in the Life will pick up after the events in M&F.
James looked from Halla to Michael and back to Halla. It wasn’t hard on his neck as she was sitting practically in his lap as it was. “Really? He agreed to take you to Royal Ascot?”
Halla swallowed the mouthful of cherry Coke she had sipped through the red and white paper straw. She thought it adorable that James had stocked his bar with the ingredients to make cherry Cokes for when her and Michael came over. “Why does that seem so strange to you?”
“It’s Royal Ascot.”
Halla still didn’t see the point. “I know. And?”
“I think they’re allowed.”
James tried to turn his burst of laughter into a cough. “You think they’re allowed.”
“I mean, he has to wear a suit and a hat, but so does everyone else.”
James covered his face with his hand for a long moment. “You don’t pay attention a lot to history, do you?”
“What? Like, I know England and Ireland’s had their problems but that’s in the past.” She looked back and forth between James and Michael. “Right?”
Stop trying to get a boyfriend. I know it’s like most generic cliched piece of advice, but it totally worked for me. Just go be awesome as a person do things that you love and people are drawn to the kind of energy that surrounds people like that. Be the kind of person you would want to hang around with and see what happens.
I’ve only read where Richard took her out to celebrate North and South’s success in one of his letters. I’ve never heard of there being a rumor of them dating.
Okay. So maybe I imagined it. Not that any of it’s my business anyway of course.
I don’t know. I thought I read it somewhere, that they’d gone on a few dates? Maybe? I mean, I remember reading it somewhere, but I’m not sure where. Who knows? It was never serious.
Yes they are. Just with the Tom and Jaimie one-shot and the Threesome Thursday story, my updating my normal stories is running a bit behind. Hopefully you’ll get a new story this weekend.
MMmmmmmm, Chris Evans. He’s lovely to write, he really is.
And yes, I’ve missed James.
AND WOOOOOOOOOOO, no more germies.
I don’t know. I have never met him and asked him. He’s the pie maker and an elf king. That’s really all I know about him.
Also, none of my business.
I’m hoping so. Right now Michael and Halla and James are sitting around in James’s living room. It’s entertaining.
unfuckyourhabitat is a depressed/struggling person’s best friend.
It does not apply to just “cleaning”. It applies to everything.
I had 4 things that I’ve been putting off for weeks. In just one 20/10, I got all four done. The feeling of accomplishment is HUGE.
I can’t recommend UFYH enough. Seriously, if you don’t know that blog and could use a little help getting life under control, go now. You will not regret it.
(PS- I’m totally teaching both of my teenagers about breaking tasks down into manageable chunks. This is something I wish I would have known sooner.)
Amen to all of that. ^^^
This website literally changed my life. With both depression and chronic pain, it keeps my life from completely falling apart.
AHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAA. Tell him hi for me! ;D
Maybe I should put them behind a read more or something.
ETA: Apparently that’s not possible.
