|aegyo-up-bitch: Okay so I couldn't comment on the chapter itself, but I thought I'd just drop by to express how I excited I was to see it pop up on my dash!! Loved in Return left a great impression on me when the fandom was in its prime and I'm so glad I never unfollowed you because I felt like I owed it to you to give the 'rewritten' version a chance. And I can already tell I won't regret it. The memories hit me like a truck. You describe Jules so perfectly and I really do enjoy your narrative voice :3|
Thank you so much! :) It means a lot to hear that, because I haven’t written any Jogan for a while and I’m kind of unsure about how everything’s turned out. Thanks again ^^ I have 8/10 chapters written, so I think chapter two will be there soon :)
Why couldn’t you comment on the chapter itself though? I thought I’d enabled anonymous comments? O.O
can you tell how much I lack experience with ao3 ^^;
Jogan AU. Inspired by both Moulin Rouge and Rent. (Completely different story, though.)
Summary: After months of traveling through Europe, living on music and love, Logan finally returns to his best friend in New York. There, he discovers that a lot has changed. Instead of the world, Derek dominates the bar in a luxurious nightclub called the Moulin Rouge. When Logan visits him, his eyes immediately fall on the main act, the seductive dancer with the haunting eyes and a smile that glows with the light of a thousand stars. But falling in love comes with a price they both struggle to pay for.
Disclaimer: All recognizable characters belong to CP Coulter and her story Dalton. Only Richard and Rajesh are mine. I wish I could swap them, but alas, can’t have everything ;) All the chapter titles (except one) are lyrics from songs I listened to while writing, kudos to you if you figure out what songs they’re from.
A few notes: Hi :) I’m participating in the Dalton Big Bang and this is my fic for it. For the people who’ve been around in this fandom for a few years: I’ve decided to entirely rewrite Loved In Return (which I’ve deleted from ff.net).
My wonderful, awesome beta is Judith :D
My amazing, talented artist is Phantom :D
Enjoy! I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments :)

""but that book character has blue/grey/light eyes so obviously they’re white!!"" ://///
(Reminder that light eyes and blonde hair can be caused by conditions, such as Waardenburg Syndrome and albinism, but they are still real people that can (and should) be represented in media and such)
And also I can add that I have news for y’all, people can be black and naturally blonde
And literally people from ANY KIND can be a redheadand have freackles and such
So please, stop pretending only white people can have those characteristics, jfc, it’s sofucking annoying.
Boom de yada
Just to add on - While race is a very, very, very significant issue, race as we know it is a social construct. When you acknowledge that all people on earth have veeeery little genetic variation in the scope of things, it’s much easier to break oneself from the training of “only white people have this, only black people have that, only asian people have this trait, etc”
Holy shit these are all just beautiful people!This is so important!

Daily Show correspondent Michael Che tries to find a safe place to report from.
“I wanted to say, ‘Hey ladies, you’re beautiful,’. Hopefully, this changes things and maybe it won’t change things, but I love it.” - Nicki Minaj on the Anaconda music video
Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.
Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.
THERE IS WATER AT THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN

REMOVE THE WATER
Actually! This was a very clever setup by a team of divers in the Arctic, I believe. The person is upside down, their bouyancy belt calibrated just so that they are slightly lighter than water, and able to walk upside down on the ice. In the first segment, when his mask vents, watch the bubbles flow DOWNWARD, which is really the up that we know. Science is really fricking cool!
I LOVE YOU MAKEITEARLGRAY
it’s so weird that people are shaming Beyonce for being sexual during her performance when literally in the speech in flawless says “We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are." Like how do you miss the point that bad
Making me jealous will only push me away from you. It won’t make me want you more. I’m not very competitive, if I see someone who’s making you a lot happier than I am, I’ll back up because I’ll assume you want that person a lot more. Although it’ll hurt seeing someone other than me make you happy, I’ll leave it to them to keep you entertained. I don’t like the feeling of being unwanted or being just second best.
- Do not forget Michael Brown
- Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
- Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
- Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
- Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
- Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
- Do not forget Ferguson
