Random headcanons/AUs that won’t get fics anytime soon. If anyone wants to add on/chime in/create something, feel free.
This started with just the words “Pizza Delivery AU”- because I always love pizza- and these pics of this guy who uncannily reminded me of my rockstar persona as a kid. (He’s the most dude-bro country artist I’ve ever seen, but the first pic has a gorgeous guitar.) And that’s what Smith in this AU looks like, as a guitarist/singer-songwriter who delivers pizzas to pay rent.
cw: none that I can think of
If I need to tag something, let me know.
Pizza Delivery Person Smith
Ross is the house he delivers to weekly
Ross is a music producer
at least, that’s what he wants to be
at night, he remixes songs and fiddles with his friend Trott’s music. during the day, he does audio syncing for a local radio, which Trott is a nightly voice at. a radio Smith listens to while driving and making deliveries for work.
“Late Rock Radio, With Chris and Steve”
(Steve just does audio during the night)
Trott knew Smith from being in a twerpy middle school band together. the band dissolved because their other guitarist and bassist fought a lot. and then the drummer just stopped showing up. like most middle school bands, it didn’t last.
Trott figured Smith would have gotten a record deal or something by now, knowing from casual, brief encounters in high school that he continued singing and wanted to go on and be a professional musician. but they’re all just washed up college grads who are semi-listless with their jobs but don’t have the desire/money to go elsewhere to chase after higher pursuits.
and that devolves into Smith hearing Trott’s voice on the computer in Ross’ apartment, asking about it. “hey, that’s the guy on the radio”.
and then Smith saying he sings too if Ross would like some samples. gives him his number. Smith brings a pizza, they all hang out. eventual jamming with guitars and live recording. put stuff up on a soundcloud account.
