Hello. Nicole. That's me. Nineteen. American. I'm a writer, it's my calling in life. I'm a theatre major, focusing in playwriting and dramaturgy. I'm obsessed with movies, music, TV shows. I'm a major fangirl. I have a twisted sense of humor, and I like to think I'm overly friendly. Oh, and apparently, I laugh at anything. So...welcome to my blog? Mkay! Nice to meet you over the interwebs.

actual sentence i just wrote for a paper.

"And how do you tell Prince Charming that you haven’t exactly been sitting in the ivory tower with a chastity belt, waiting for him to whisk you away on his white horse?"

I’m keeping it. I love college.

trouble in paradise.

Uhura: Captain, I'm so sorry about Admiral Pike.
Kirk: We all are.
Uhura: Are you okay?
Kirk: Fine. Thank you, Lieutenant
[They get into the elevator.]
Kirk: Actually, Scotty just quit. And your boyfriend's second guessing me every chance he gets. I'm sorry, that was inappropriate. It's just sometimes I wanna rip the bangs off his head. Hell, maybe it's me. It--
Uhura: It's not you.
Kirk: It's not? Wait, are you guys...are you guys, fighting?
Uhura: I'd rather not talk about it.
Kirk: Oh, my God. What is that even like?
[The elevator doors open and Spock is standing outside the doors, Uhura gives Spock a cold look as she walks past him; to Spock as Kirk walks by him.]
Kirk: Ears burning?

earrings.

(Just a quick little drabble—nothing major.)

Danny found them a few weeks later. He was cleaning up and his copy of Outliers fell off the nightstand and when he bent to pick it up, something glinted, making him blink.

He turned his head and saw the small diamonds. He reached for them and stood up.

Danny didn’t know how long he stood there, staring at the earrings in his palm. His mouth was suddenly dry and he was having trouble breathing because his words that came out of his mouth a couple of months ago were swimming in his mind.

"You’re my best friend…I need to have you in my life. I have to have you."

Yeah, he thought tersely. Where was she now? Probably out with Peter. Moving on with guys who didn’t give to fucks about her.

He heard about the dude who taught kindergarten, or whatever. That was a disaster. One of the worst ones she’s been through.

All because you got scared and ran.

He let out a breath and looked at the jewelry. They were his favorite. He said as much. They were noticeable without being overly flashy and they looked amazing against her skin. And her eyes shone brighter when she wore them, if that was even possible.

They didn’t make her beautiful. She already was. They just made her beauty more obvious and more breathtaking. She joked that he would need an oxygen tank when she was around. He didn’t correct her.

Danny balled his hand into a fist, enclosing the earrings and continued to clean. He had half a mind to keep them. They were a piece of her. Something tangible, something there. And he had lost her. Any idiot could have seen that.

He sighed and went into the kitchen, opened the fridge, and pulled out a beer. He set the earrings on his counter and sat on one of the stools. He stared at them, thinking of a game plan.

She did forget them here. She probably won’t even miss them, he reasoned. They were in his house, they were his property now, technically, right?

Yeah, but they’re her favorite pair. You’ve already hurt her, don’t be a dick. Yeah, it would be a total dick move, and Danny Castellano didn’t really want to feel like a dick anymore.

When he opened the door to her office, he didn’t give her time to react.

"Yeah, I know, you’re busy, just, you left this at my place and I’d figured you want it." He placed the jewlery on her desk and turned to exit. She spoke right when he was at the doorway.

"Danny, there’s only one here."

"Yeah, sorry about that. I was, uh, vacuuming and the other one got sucked in and you know me and vacuums. So, um, I can buy you another pair, if you want."

"No, no, it’s…it’s fine," she said, forcing a quick, tight smile. He nodded and left the room.

As he made his way to his office, he put his hand in his coat pocket and didn’t breath until his fingers found what they were looking for.

Thank you, dear friend. I have read their stuff, it’s fantastic. 

things i have learned about tv from tumblr.

I want to write for TV and I’ve learned a lot from various tumblr posts/rants and I have compiled a list of them.

  1. The slow burn is worth it…
  2. …but, don’t jerk your audience around.
  3. Don’t kill a character just for the sake of killing a character.
  4. Don’t assume the audience is dumb—they’re not.
  5. Treat all characters respectfully.
  6. Don’t neglect the supporting characters.
  7. Sometimes, the show becomes about the relationship. And that’s okay.
  8. The audience isn’t always right.
  9. The audience isn’t always wrong.
  10. Continuity is important.
  11. As is character development.
  12. Ships will happen, whether you want them to or not.
  13. The audience connects to the story, don’t throw it away.

Basically:

  1. Don’t pull a HIMYM.

calling all mac/dick shippers.

I need someone to freak out with me about this ship. Because it’s so precious and I’m consumed by feels and I need some MaDi appreciation in my life, stat. This pair is taking over my whole entire fangirl existence, at the moment. Like, I’m reading all the fic I can get my hands on. It’s borderline neurotic, I swear.

Someone, come be an obsessive weirdo about the awesomeness that is Mac and Dick with me. I need someone to talk to about them with so I don’t lose it.

is this the real life? is this just fantasy?

For our final paper in English, we’re doing satire. We’re doing a unit on satire and it’s basically the best thing ever.

Today in class, all we did was watch Colbert and talk about television and how the media perceives satire and irony. And I literally had to bite my finger to keep from geeking out because this is right up my alley and I’m psyched as shit about it.

I am the human form of satire, y’all. I’m going to fucking kill this thing. This is my time to shine. I WILL BECOME A BEAUTIFUL BUTTERFLY.

Also, I went up to my professor after the class—she’s cool, in like a trendy, New York way, her fashion style is ace—and I had a geek out and somehow, we got on the subject of improv and she told me she knew Aubrey Plaza in high school and they lived in New York together for awhile before Aubrey got her big break in LA, so. 

I HAVE ONE DEGREE OF SEPARATION FROM AUBREY PLAZA. WHICH MAKES ME CONNECTED TO FEY AND POEHLER AND KALING AND ALL OF THOSE GUYS AND I FUCKING CAN’T RIGHT NOW.

Oh, my God.

I love college.
