You're lucky Connor wasn't there. Having me need a doctor after the race? When he finds out, he's going to kill you. And then me for not telling him.

But you need to put your head together with his mun. There's some very big things happening for me now, and I can't imagine that he would miss all of them. You two need to figure out what's going on and where he is before you say something else stupid.

And how did I drive three hours from Indianapolis to Chicago with two injured hands anyway?

[Uh Shelby. Shane actually would have...]

No. Don't tell me he's lurking around here somewhere. I'd rather have the blisters.
shelbycobra: (Are you serious?)

Canon is Need For Speed.

Um. Hi.

[Raises hand.]

Given my relationship status, you know what the first one of these sounds like I did, right?

You don't even know if my boyfriend would want me to propose. Isn't he supposed to propose? And in case you forgot, the one time I tried to get married didn't go so well. So what are you doing with this thread except possibly upturning my romantic life?

...You're just going to leave it there. Okay. Hm. I guess we'll see if he notices. And see if I say I told you so.

Give me one reason that I should go along with this when I just spent the last few weeks getting played and yanked around by people with agendas who hand-on-their-heart swore they were trustworthy.

[Well, y'know. You could go to jail if you don't go to a game, Brendan. The game is probably better just by default.]

I doubt it. Even with the slip-up with the evidence, it's easier to pin everything on the suspects they've got and cops aren't really known for being thorough. They like open and shut cases. So do I when I can actually find them. I also like working alone or at most with one person who I know for a fact isn't going to be at the game. This whole thing is going to end the way it always ends, somebody in jail, someone else's fist in my gut and too late to do any real good. Did you tune out when I was talking to the VP? I don't do heroics. Don't think anyone really does, honestly, regardless of what they tell me, you or themselves.

Do what you gotta do to let me go. It's not going to work out otherwise.

It's a bit weird to be here with two others with my face. Or do I have theirs? I don't honestly know. I've heard a bit about the one, Derek. Then again, his kind is prominent in some parts of New Orleans. So now that you have me, what're you going to do with me?

Might not get much traction since not a lot of people know my canon. But I'm willing to try if you are.

Canon is Need For Speed. Shelby's being a spoiled brat.

No, I don't think I'm acting like a spoiled brat. In case you haven't noticed things in my life aren't going well right now. We're making mistakes and there's no room for mistakes so yeah, I'm going to be pissed. Plus I'm lucky if I get to see my boyfriend at all, I miss Michael, and oh yeah, still upset that everyone forgot my birthday. So I'm upset and I'm not going to apologize for it.

I'm allowed to act badly sometimes. I'm sure there are muses around here who do a lot worse than throw a temper tantrum. If I tick some people off then I'll fix it later. Let me get it out of my system now before the Month of May.
shelbycobra: (Has a headache)

Canon is Need For Speed. Who's the birthday girl?

I think you should give up on the idea of my birthday ever being a thing. I know you love to write all sorts of holiday posts, but this is the second year nothing has happened. At least last year I won a race. This year is just, I don't know what it is. I don't think people care about birthdays once you get past like 21.

You did say some of the other drivers got me presents. I'm sure Mom and Dad got me something too. So at least that was nice, but you don't have to make every milestone in my life a major RP event. Just write a ficlet about it and we'll skip the letdown.

Kingman Knights, are you here?

I have conveyed to you before that I don't mind being alone. If it is a state I am in, you will hear no complaints from me. The thing to keep in mind is that things are constantly changing. There is a blessing in that, believe me.

I will admit that finding more Kingsman would be exciting for the both of us, I am ready to fully admit that they might not there to be found.But this status will not last long; there is a trailer coming.

Which brings up the point of how I will be depicted in the sequel. I have no requests for how that shouod take place. I have changed so much since then. Whatever happens to my screen self really bares no connection to me; we are not at the mercy of a plot that we ourselves are not orchastrating. Remember that.

Obscure 90s films ahoy! (Canon is Sneakers)

 So, er, Boss? What's the plan here exactly? 
shelbycobra: (Default)

Canon is Need For Speed. Shelby's a skeptic already.

We can both agree that not having brakes on my car is a bad idea. I obviously would like to be able to stop and not crash. But I'm not sure calling in Tobey is the solution. What makes you think he's going to fly all the way from New York just to look at my car? There's nothing in it for him, aside from painful memories.

I do know you should probably talk to my friends, because I'd like to think someone in my life would have seen the race and been slightly concerned by me almost catching on fire.

If this is how the first week goes I am going to absolutely love this season. And that is not sarcasm this time. This'll be fun.
shelbycobra: (Definitely pissed at you)

Canon is Need For Speed.

No, I don't think he left me. Don't be a dick about it.

We've got six days until the season starts, four until I have to leave anyway, so you want to focus on that?

Voice testing (Canon is Godzilla (2014))

If I may speak freely sir, I think I deserve some time with my family rather than whatever you have in store. It's just fair in my eyes. But if if it would fall on deaf ears then I reckon I've to do.

At least there aren't any MUTOs. So what's your orders then?
shelbycobra: (Headphones)

Canon is Need For Speed. On the mun's bad diagnosis.

I'm so sorry that you've got these new problems now. The good news is X-rays aren't that bad. I've had several. And hopefully they'll come back clear and with these new medications everything will be okay soon enough.

And I mean, I'm dating a doctor. If anyone can make you feel better about this it's him. He saves pandas for a living.

Just relax and we'll find you something fun that'll make you forget all about this. If we could handle all the crazy that happened last year with the merger and the dissolution of the merger and my dad, we can handle this. I promise you.
shelbycobra: (Oh no you didn't)

Canon is Need For Speed. What just happened?

No, seriously, what just happened?

You pick a storyline for me to follow and it ends up being the one where I win the Race of Champions? Where I wind up in the Nations Cup semifinals? Maybe you better start playing the lottery because you - we - are really lucky.

I'm incredibly humbled to represent my country and my sport in the way I have. I didn't expect any of this when I signed up. But I'm honored that I was able to have this shot, and the only way it could have been better was if my boyfriend could have seen it.

Which is what matters now. My work is done and I'm exhausted and I just want to spend time with the man I love. I want to see how being apart has affected us and have that reunion he said we were in for. That's what is worth writing now - how my career will change my relationship and me having to figure out these challenges I've never had before. We learned from last season that I can win all the races and it doesn't mean anything if nobody is there.

So if you really want to end this well, just find me Connor and a pizza. Because I'd trade the trophy for him in a heartbeat.

this one is not too pleased with his mun.

Hey, mun lady. I thought you weren't gonna forget about me after all the trouble you went to with letting me come around and all the first time. Major drag, mun. I mean, what do you expect me to do? Just be let out of the box whenever you feel like reminiscing or some shit? C'mon, what kind of a waste is that?

Muns, man. They really need to come with a handbook or something.

mun is on an evil dead resurgence and, well —

I'm not sure if you know this, but your timing? It fucking sucks, my friend.
shelbycobra: (In the pits)

Canon is Need For Speed. New year, new concerns.

As weird as it feels to have you writing me stuck in bed and not on a plane to Daytona...I need you to focus on my personal life, not my professional one. If Connor isn't happy then giving up the Rolex 24 and all of that won't mean anything. He's who all of this is for.

I'll handle my business with the Race of Champions. I always do; that's not what I'm concerned about. What I'm worried about is making sure the man I love is taken care of, and that all the things we've been through recently haven't complicated our relationship. Focus on that and the racing will work itself out. I'm not a champion for nothing.

Although the back spasm was an unnecessary touch. I hate you for that.

Canon is Need For Speed. Shelby has no holiday cheer.

It's not as simple as you want to make it, mun.

I'm not deciding for my boyfriend where he wants to spend Christmas. He is a grown man who can make his own choice and so is his mun. I'm sure he'll pop up before the holiday and you can ask what he wants to do.

And if he wants to come to Florida? That's not just some Norman Rockwell painting holiday warm and fuzzy whatever. It'll be the first time I've seen Dad since he quit. The first time Dad will have ever seen my boyfriend. And do you remember how badly he reacted the last time I introduced him to somebody? It was all "Shelby Elizabeth Diana Manning." Both my middle names.

...Granted that's because I was also engaged by the time I got there but still.

This is a big deal, and I think you owe it to everybody involved to get it right. Don't cause a problem just because you're impatient to write fluffy Christmas crap.

canon is DETECTIVE BYOMKESH BAKSHY!

( his hands move inside his jacket pockets, long fingers searching for a cigarette. he mutters under his breath, the name "ajit" only hissed loud enough to catch. finding no cigarette, byomkesh elects to busy his hands by clasping them tightly together. without the obscuration of smoke, however, the bright glitter dancing in his dark eyes and the slight smirk tugging at his mouth is clearly visible. )

Let's examine this, shall we? You intend to play me? A character that, while popular in Bengali literature, is not well-known outside India. ( leaning closer, he speaks slowly, drawing out each word, ) You yourself are already aware of how difficult it is to obtain accounts of my adventures. Fluency in Bengali or money is required. A slight obstacle that you overcame, at least in the case of the latter. But your real obstacle is expecting and finding people to also overcome that difficulty.

( he smiles and, if it wasn't for the obduracy in his tone, it could almost be mistaken as warm. ) Your persistence, while admirable, is misguided. Please direct it elsewhere. Because, realistically, I doubt I'd get out very often. ( not that he'd want to get out anyways. he much prefers to stay in and let his mind mull over problems. or act like a veritable whatsitsname.

he laughs, sharp and short. )
Like I said, admirable.

Canon is Red-Eye. I missed her. The feeling isn't mutual.

While I appreciate the fact you haven't completely forgotten about me, you still don't know what you want to do with me. I've moved on. I'm a stronger person now. I've dealt with all my past demons.

I'm happy, I really am.



Why won't you believe me?
shelbycobra: (Making a phone call)

Canon is Need For Speed. Shelby doesn't like the mun's new pastime.

Can we talk about you deciding it's fun to embarrass me? I know I'm blonde but I'm not stupid. And if you playing me for laughs all the time makes me lose Connor I will murder you with your own keyboard.

Plus, I'm pretty sure Tommy thinks I'm a complete idiot now so thanks for spoiling a friendship I really could've used at the moment.

All I want is one night where I can go dancing and to dinner and to be a normal girl. Is it that hard for you to do without puns or me mistexting somebody?

And you wonder why I'm thirty going on fifty.
