Notes: This was for 1sentencefic on Dreamwidth. Prompts 20 & 25 are based on an interview where he admitted to doing those. (Bonus!pic for prompt 47!)
Half the fun of writing music was the new sounds he could create.
The guys made fun of him, ordering “Rich People's Food”, but JC decided it was an acquired taste.
The morning after he turned 26, he hazily remembered seeing all his friends, a sexy cake, and Justin dancing with a blow-up doll.
JC sometimes wore the oddest outfits just to see how many people told him he looked hot.
JC ran towards the noise coming from his living room, yelling, and was surprised to find someone fleeing out the door.
Justin had apologized for what his Super Bowl actions had done to Schizophrenic, and JC had forgiven him in a heartbeat.
Schizophrenic was just something fun to do, but when JC went on tour and saw the fan reactions, he started to feel proud of his music.
They denied they were breaking up to the media, but JC couldn't hide it from himself.
Fame, and the road to it, left a messy wake upon their personal lives.
There were days when JC wondered if the loneliness that lurked around the corner would be all that fate had left for him.
“Please, stay,” JC whispered as she started to leave.
JC watched as she left, leaving him with the nagging emptiness again.
They were going from place to place so fast, JC couldn't tell them apart in his mind, but the moon was the one constant wherever they went and he found comfort in that.
JC always thought he and the guys were a special brand of crazy those early days.
The best feeling he got as JC CHASEZ OF *N SYNC was when they helped the underprivileged kids.
16. Second Best
The media always said JC was second best to Justin, and he was just fine with that.
JC hoped his fans heard his heart and soul that he put into his music.
Sometimes the music just burrowed into his mind and lingered like a fever.
“The only thing you need to be a celebrity is a willingness to hug everyone,” JC mused as he posed for a photo with a fan.
They were in Europe, it was legal, and JC took the weed that was offered to him.
He admitted to being the cheapest, but he was glad to be known as the cheap one, the secret knowledge that he'll never be broke again comforted him.
JC doubted his ability to judge dance crews, but listened to his family and accepted the job with America's Best Dance Crew.
Schizophrenic was a bit of an inside joke of a title, and America needed to lighten up.
JC wished he had someone the most whenever he was feeling sick.
25. Altered State
The one and only time JC ever used 'shrooms, he awoke the next morning naked save for a sheet tied around his neck like a cape.
Justin once joked that JC was a bit slow on the uptake and the easiest to prank, but really JC was in his own world, listening to the music that only he could hear.
Letting loose with Chris felt so good, just as much as it did to throw all his patio things into the pool.
They always spent the first day of a new tour on the same bus, the excitement in the air was jokingly referred to as “New Tour Smell”.
29. Hold On
They sorted through thousands of things the fans left for them at every venue, most got donated to local hospitals or shelters, but JC always saved one or two that he liked as mementos.
After being robbed, JC escaped to his Florida home, to be close to family, and to see if he could feel safe again.
The biggest shock of the year – besides being robbed twice – was how alive he felt when the police left.
The only thing JC was serious about from the get go was his finances.
JC always thought cliches were cheesy, but sex on a desk was a cliché for a reason.
The only time in his adult life JC wore an apron, the guys were so messy it didn't matter that he had.
JC was never one for breakfast, but when his family was in town, he did his best for his mom.
Accidents happen, and the one show they did early in their career in Germany certainly proved it, not one of them came off stage unscathed.
Years after they broke up and he wasn't spending most of his time dancing for a few hours a day, JC decided it was time to join the gym.
He sucked on his finger after he nicked it with the knife.
JC wished he could fix everything and they could tour again.
The flicker of candlelight sometimes revved up JC's creative juices when he was writing.
He discovered that he tended to want to go slow and sweet when he was in love.
The best days on tour was when he could sneak away to a museum for a few hours.
The shade of Justin's shadow was both a relief – less paparazzi – and a curse – trying to break free.
The other guys always came to him for advice, and he asked Chris one time why that was, only to be surprised to find that they thought he was the wisest of them all.
Lou's betrayal of their trust made JC's blood boil long after they had won.
An hour on the phone with either Chris or Joey would lift JC's spirits, because it meant an hour of near constant laughing.
JC wasn't sure exactly why he wore his hair like he had stuck his hand in the electrical outlet either.
One time, at an outdoor gig, a bird shat on JC while he was belting out his solo.
49. Speak Up
After what they went through with Lou, JC wasn't afraid to speak his mind in business meetings.
JC had to tear himself away from the cage to fill out the paper work to adopt Baron.
