Finn’s Earring

teastaindiary:

imageIt was one of those boring nights of the midterm. Finn had just escaped the clutches of Stacey. The Swan was still refusing to serve them despite the fact the right dodgy fake ids that Chop’s brother procured  for them no doubt from the twat Kendo. 

'What the fuck Chopper, the bloke in the pictures got a beard! He's like forty' The i.ds were crap but it didn't half give them a laugh every now and again getting each other to go to the offie and try to convince the old mare that it was them. Archer getting tossed out on his arse, his glasses slipping off and the id being thrown at his head was one of Finn's cherished memories. The look of indignation as Archie stood up brushed himself off.'Well I never' he said haughtily before sauntering away. 

It was a Wednesday night the excitement of midterm was wearing thin the three lads and some of their usual mates Barney, Lizard and Little Al were hanging about a patch of scrub land behind the Spar after being shifted from Rutlands by the bigger lands. They had six warm lagers and a shoulder of cheap rum lifted from the cornershop Lizard’s parents owned. Finn of course was master of tones as the boys took swings  from the rum laughing at their scrunched up faces as the cheap alcohol burnt a fire through their throat. The mix clicked over it the loud screech of Graham Coxon guitar shot through their laughter.

A sail trip, a confession and everything that comes with it…

with-my-fingertips:

Finally I finished Part 3! Thank you again for the messages and comments! This is a bit different because there’s a lot of dialogue. The plan is to do 5 parts, but writing is slow because I don’t have much time at the moment. The idea of this fic is based in the book called “Here for the cake”. Tagging people who asked me to (at the end).
P1 “A dress, a plane ticket…”
P2 “The best man, a kiss…”

Synopsis: Finn is convinced his best friend Archie is making a huge mistake marrying a person he doesn’t love and he’s willing to do anything to stop the wedding, even if that means to buy a plane ticket to Malta for HER, the girl who has always despise him but apparently is the only one that can stop the event from happening. When plan A fails, Rae and Finn find themselves telling everyone they’re dating, but the line between truth and lies starts to disappear. Word count: +3,700

“FINN COME ON, OPEN UP!” The sound of loud knocks on the door made Finn stir from a deep sleep, groaning into his pillow and holding it closer to him. It was rudely early for him, the sky had just started to change colours, and he squeezed his eyes hard as if that would make the yelling and banging go away. “Finn wake up, we’re running late!”

6.00 a. m. Fucking Archie was trying to ruin his life; he was tired and barely remembered they had made plans the night before, something about a day expedition to an island 1 hour away. He was about to roll over his back when he felt an arm wrapped around his waist, slightly tightening the grip and pulling him against the body behind him. In a moment of confusion he opened his eyes wide and sloppily jumped from bed, turning around just in time to find Rae face planted on the spot he had just abandoned. This was definitely not the way he had expected to wake up, completely disoriented and right now being hit by the pillows Rae was throwing at him, cursing and extremely upset, “What the fuck Finn?!”

The banging on the door had taken a less important role in his mind, even when it was incessant, but Archie’s voice brought him back from his distractions, “Finn Nelson, if you don’t open this door now I swear I will –”

Finn ran fast to open the door, letting his friend inside the room. “Hey, I’m sorry Arch I overslept. I will change real quick.”

Archie walked in, stopping for a moment to consider the scene in front of him, “I knew you were going to – Oh…” Some things were knocked down, pillows lied around the floor, the unmade bed was almost stripped off the sheets and then there was Rae, looking at him with a killer stare and tangled hair, every detail could pass as a very wild night between his friends. “God, sorry. I didn’t mean to interrupt. I-I will wait for you two at the lobby. We’re leaving at 7”.

Haha this had to be during the time spike island was being filmed or I should say on a day off or after. I say this obviously because of the hair. Also that last gif is amazing. I seriously want to see him play so badly! He really looks quite good from videos I’ve seen. Seeing in person is better though.

I seriously cant stop laughing at this everytime I think I am over it his hair billows in the wind again and its just…its just the best thing i have ever seen, little mushroom headed one

HAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA yes the billowing in the wind is 70% of the hilarity. 

@teastaindiary Here it is!! Enjoy!         

Oh boy! Look at those locks!

So this may be stupid, but... did the real Rae Earl end up with her real Finn?

endemictoearth:

This is not stupid at all! However, I’m not sure how best to answer it. 

I would highly recommend you read the diaries. You can get them from Amazon UK (My Mad Fat Diary * My Madder Fatter Diary). You’ll get a lot of insight about what the real Rae’s crush was like, and the nature of their relationship. 

I think the short answer is no, but the longer answer/question is, who decides who your “real Finn” is? Not many of us end up with the people we meet in high school or college. Some people are “lucky” (if that’s your definition of luck), but other people have to go through a few (or few dozen) people to find someone. (As they surmise on Flight of the Conchords, I think you’re allowed up to five “The One”s).

As far as I know, the real Rae is happily married, successful, with a lovely family. Does it matter that the fellow she’s with now isn’t the same guy she was smitten with at age 17? (I’m not asking this to be antagonistic, I just think it’s worth pondering.)

I’m personally relieved as fuck that I never dated anyone in high school. Though at the time I might have felt left out of things occasionally, I had a great group of friends and mostly just had a fun time. My high school was pitifully small, and the pool of eligible guys was laughable. And I don’t know that I would have been ready for that kind of relationship when I was a teen.

I feel like I’ve opened a can of worms, but I just want to say this. If you don’t meet and fall in love with the perfect guy for you by the time you graduate high school: YOU HAVE NOT FAILED. Entertainment is there to give you hope and, well, entertain. The fics I write, I realize, are often idealistic and slightly unrealistic. But you could meet your “Finn” in college, at work, online, at a concert, walking down the street, after you’ve been married and divorced, WHENEVER. I met mine at a music festival that he was dragged to by his friends and I didn’t know he was going to be The One until many months later.

The best advice I have is just go and live the life you want, regardless if you have someone to live it with you. Do things you like to do! If you like go karts, maybe you’ll meet someone at the track. If you like museums, check out the people checking out the art from time to time. Your eyes could meet across a not-so-crowded gallery.

This may not be what you wanted, but I got a little fired up. I know it’s hard not to define yourself by whether you’re in a romantic-type relationship, but I do worry that people are idealizing Finn and using him as an unrealistic metric for their lives.

WHERE ARE YOU? NICO DID THE ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE! WHERE ARE YOU?

i-love-mmfd:

ch1darkcy:

AAAAHHHH I was sleeping :( It sucks to be in a totally different time than the UK! It happened when E4 released something of the show too :(

Can’t even begin to talk about this… Not yet, I’m emotionally overcharged, I’m probably going to need a bucket myself……………….

Thank you by the way for messaging me, again! Lol

ch1darkcy Ana, what did E4 release??? NOT BEING IN THE UK IS AWFUL.

I woke up at 8am today, and it was noon in England!, I missed the whole morning!

Sorry, I confused a lot of you with this. I only meant that when e4 released something (like the photoshoot of s2) it used to do it at the time I was sleeping, so I miss all the fun…

Sooo sorry everyone, they still haven’t said anything about s3 or anything else beyond “we don’t know yet”.

Wait. What did E4 release about the show???

Nothing lately. But when we were waiting for S2 they released a lot of videos and pictures in the (UK) mornings and since I was asleep I only got to see it like 5 hrs later and missed all the initial fun
