[bursts into song]

105. The different Hogwarts houses celebrate birthdays differently:

Hufflepuff: 

  • On their birthdays, the Hufflepuffs get woken up with cake in bed before breakfast
  • The night before the other students prepare the celebration and the cake, and they visit the kitchen for ingredients
  • The Hufflepuffs make sure to never forget any birthday, and it’s a priority to celebrate every birthday equally much, even for students who are not their closest friends
  • The students who have their birthday in summer or during the Christmas break gets celebrated when they come back in autumn, no one is forgotten
  • The student is presented with little surprises throughout the day, like all the portraits wishing them a happy birthday 


Gryffindor: 

  • The Gryffindor students have the loudest celebrations
  • The day starts with all the other students in their dormitory singing happy birthday
  • During the day the students will randomly burst into song, and they can be heard singing everywhere in the castle
  • The birthday girl/boy/person is sometimes given a crown or hat to wear during the day, and every time they see someone wearing one, they all start singing
  • Once, Fred and George Weasley enchanted the statues and suits of armour in the school to sing every time she/he/they walked by
  • The singing always drives the professors crazy, and all except Dumbledore, Lupin and Hagrid give out detentions to anyone who sings in their class 
  • “You’re SO OLD!!”

Slytherin: 

  • The Slytherins plan their birthday celebrations for a long time, with organised teams within the house for each part of the celebrations, like music, cake, decorations etc.
  • It’s important for the Slytherins to throw the perfect birthday celebrations, and the students pride themselves in having the best parties and surprises
  • Every student gets their own little party, sometimes with only their closest friends and sometimes with almost every student of the house
  • The parties are often supposed to be surprises
  • But the birthday girl/boy/person almost always figures it out beforehand
  • Every student gets a personalised verse of happy birthday or their own short song, prepared by the students in the “song group” 

Ravenclaw: 

  • Every birthday the birthday girl/boy/person has to complete a treasure hunt, and are given clues and riddles to find the treasure throughout the day
  • The clues are given written down on pieces of paper or in other magical ways
  • Each riddle leads to another clue and they eventually lead to the treasure that is hidden somewhere on the grounds or in the castle
  • The treasure varies for each student and is personalised for that specific person by their friends
  • The students of Ravenclaw always makes sure to prepare small but clever surprises for birthday girl/boy/person to discover throughout the day, all leading up to the big gift
BTS as Musicals

J-Hope - Singin’ in the Rain

Lighthearted singing and dancing combined with a hilarious sense of humor. Need I say more?

Jin - Mary Poppins

Sass with just a spoon full of sugar. Jin would whip your misbehaving children into perfect angels who may burst out in song at any moment. 

Suga - Hamilton

From the rap to the story about beating the odds to the empowerment of underdogs everywhere, Hamilton and Suga parallel each other in many aspects.

Jungkook - Grease

Jungkook has truly grown up before ARMY’s eyes, so what’s more fitting than this coming of age tale? (hint: the answer is nothing).

Rap Monster - Newsies

Newsies tells the story of a young man with a vision leading a group of boys to strive for equality and achieve their dreams. Sounds a bit familiar, doesn’t it?

Jimin - Wicked

Wicked’ and Jimin’s teach that, not matter how cliche it sounds, if you believe in yourself and surround yourself with supportive people, anything is possible. 

V - Hairspray

There’s a similar vibe that Hairspray and V have, one of happiness and the ineffable love to dance and sing and entertain people. 

“A Wish for 100″

Pairing: Bucky Barnes x Reader

Summary: Midnight strikes, officially marking Bucky’s 100th birthday. You surprise the super-soldier with a small treat and a gift that has potential to change everything.

A/N: ending the last few hours of the day by wishing a happy 100th to our sweet plum, bucky barnes! // i wrote this in 7 minutes (i timed myself, hurrah) so it’s an incoherent mess. i’ll probably delete this sometime next week xx

Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.

Bucky leans against the headboard of his bed, bringing the covers closer to his body before crossing his arms against his chest. He watches as the second hand of the clock make its way around, hypnotically ticking away.

Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.

In a few minutes, he’ll be 100-years-old, and it baffles him that he’s been on this planet for a century. He’s outlived his parents, his contemporaries, and everything he considered to be home. His age isn’t something he’s too keen on, especially since he’s spent over half of those “one hundred years of life” as a brainwashed weapon for a terrorist organization.

Birthdays are still a weird concept, and he prefers to not make a big deal out of them. He’s requested his teammates to treat it like any other day, and he doesn’t want any special attention. Lucky for him, the Avengers members with a flare for surprises and events are on a mission, and hopefully the rest of the team will oblige to his request.

Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.

His breath hitches.

It’s midnight.

Hatred

Request: You and Jughead don’t like each other and trade insults all the time, until one day you’re thrown together and start making out furiously.

Requested by: anonymous

Part 3: https://beronica-josie.tumblr.com/post/157992846283/hatred-part-3

Masterlist: https://beronica-josie.tumblr.com/post/157919516668/masterlist

You were sandwiched between Betty and the wall in a booth at Pop’s. You frowned across the table at Jughead, who had a similarly unamused look upon his face. You were trying to be civil with him, but he kept insisting upon glaring at you instead of just leaving you alone.

It was Betty’s birthday and she had invited you, Veronica, Archie, and Jughead to have dinner at Pop’s before her party. Betty was one of your best friends, so of course you said yes, but the meal turned sour when you ended up stuck across from Jughead. Betty and Veronica were chatting away, with Archie chiming in from time to time. You were trying to focus on your food.

Pop walked over to the booth carrying a large strawberry milkshake with extra whipped cream on top. He placed it in front of Betty before stating with a jolly laugh, “On the house, Betty. Happy Birthday!” Everyone at the table, including Pop, burst into the Happy Birthday song. You joined in, glad to be celebrating Betty instead of focusing on Jughead.

“Would any of you kids like a milkshake?” Pop asked after the song was over. Archie and Veronica both ordered before Pop turned to you.

“I’d like a chocolate milkshake.” You said politely.

“I’ll take a chocolate milkshake as well.” Jughead said.

“Coming right up kids.” Pop smiled before walking to the back.

A few minutes later, Pop came back carrying three milkshakes. He was scowling. “I’m sorry kids, we only had enough chocolate ice cream left for one milkshake.” He placed it in the middle of the table between you and Jughead.

“That’s okay, Pop. We’ll figure it out.” You said politely. As soon as he was gone, your eyes shot towards Jughead. He had already grabbed the milkshake.

“That’s my milkshake.” You said, unamused.

“I got to it first.” He shrugged, dipping his straw into the drink.

“And I ordered first, so it’s my milkshake.”

“That’s too bad.” He said mockingly, before taking a sip. You really wished you had laser vision.

“Jughead, don’t be childish. Share it.” Betty told him. That was Betty, always trying to remedy the situation between you and Jughead.

He rolled his eyes, before sliding it across the table. You smirked at him before scooping out some ice cream. “You know what? I don’t want it anymore.” He said dryly.

You looked at him incredulously. Was he really that childish? “Whatever, more for me.”

AT THE PARTY

Thank god you were at a party. They really weren’t Jughead’s scene, so you never had to see him. You were enjoying yourself, talking and laughing with Veronica and Archie.

By 9 pm, a raging game of spin the bottle truth or dare was in full swing. Someone would spin the bottle and whoever it landed on would be asked to pick truth or dare. It was Veronica’s turn to spin.

As the bottle spun around, you couldn’t help but hope it wouldn’t land on you. You didn’t want to do anything wild and become the girl who made out with some loser or something. Unfortunately, the bottle slowed and stopped just as it pointed to you.


You sighed. You had to pick dare. Everyone else had chosen it and you didn’t want to be the only one who chickened out. “What kind of dare you got for me, Ronnie?”

She sat there for a few seconds, thinking. Archie leaned over and whispered something in her ear and her eyes lit up. “That’s good!” She turned to you. “I dare you to experience seven minutes in heaven with…” She looked around the room, before her eyes landed on the last person you ever wanted to be locked in a closet with. “Jughead.”

He was leaning against the wall in the corner of the room, watching the game silently. When you glanced over at him, he was scowling. And so were you. “Really, Ronnie? Of all the people…” you were irritated. Why did they have to do this to you?

“You have to, [Y/N].” She stood up, grabbing your hand and pulling you up with her. She led you to the closet, before opening the door and gesturing for you to enter. You looked over at Betty, hoping she would stop this, but she only mouthed ‘sorry.’ You rolled your eyes, but entered the small room.

“No way.” Jughead didn’t move from his spot in the corner.

“Archie, a little help?” Veronica asked.

Archie jumped up, and walked over to Jughead. He was much stronger than Jughead, so it was easy for him to push Jughead towards the closet. With a final shove, Jughead fell into the closet. Unfortunately, he fell on top of you just after Veronica slammed the door shut.

He knocked you over, and you knocked over a couple of board games that were on the shelves behind you.

“Keep It down you two!” Someone yelled from outside, causing everyone else to laugh.

You rolled your eyes. This was so mature.

Jughead quickly found his footing and took a step towards the corner of the closet, not bothering to help you up.

“Thanks for the help.” You said sarcastically, getting up and picking up the board games that had fallen.

“Thanks for getting us into this situation.” He said, annoyed.

“Oh, I got us into this situation?” You turned towards him, growing irritated.

“Yeah, if you weren’t so rude to me all the time, they wouldn’t have forced us into this closet.”

“Oh, I’m the rude one? Okay.” Your sarcasm grew stronger with every sentence.

“Or if you just hadn’t picked dare like a dumbass.” He continued grilling you.

“And what else was I supposed to pick? Everyone was picking dare.” You took a step closer to him, so you could get in his face. You weren’t going to take his crap.

“You need to stop worrying so much about what everyone else is doing.” He took a step closer to you, so you were right in each other’s faces.

“Oh yeah, like I should be taking advice from-“ Before you could finish your sentence, he leaned closer to you, pressing his lips into yours.

You were caught by surprise, and tried to lean out of it, but his lips felt so warm on yours that you couldn’t. His kiss was full of anger and he leaned into it, pushing you against the wall. You didn’t understand it or why it was happening, but it felt too good to break. You wrapped your arms around his neck, digging your hands into the hair underneath his beanie and bringing him closer to you.

When the two of you finally pulled apart, he took a step back. His eyes burned into yours, intense and full of desire. You couldn’t help but breath hard after that intense make out session. You still had three minutes left in heaven and you sure as hell weren’t going to let it slip away.

You roughly grabbed him by the collar and pulled him back to you, locking lips again. You could tell he was surprised you wanted more, as his kiss was sloppy. You didn’t care. His lips just felt so good against yours.

He pulled away again, this time backing away from you until his back was against the opposite wall. “You’ve got about 30 seconds before someone’s going to come crashing through that door.” He said quietly, straightening the beanie on top of his hair.

“So are we going to talk about that?” You asked as you flattened your frizzed hair and straightened your shirt.

Jughead watched you intensely with the same hungry look in his eyes. You could tell he was resisting. He shook his head slowly. “It’s probably better if we don’t.”

Before you could utter another word, the door flew open and in marched Veronica. “Nice to see you could get along for a few minutes.” She laughed, grabbing your arm and pulling you out of the closet. You glanced over at Jughead as you were leaving, but he was staring at the wall where you had just stood.

Everything was confusing you. Why did he do that? Why did you like it so much? Did you no longer hate Jughead? Everything he did was so annoying, and yet you loved the way his lips felt against yours. You were hungry for more and you knew he was, too. The only question left was: How could you see him again?

she’s a tiger hologram
i see her there like a tiger hologram
i spy on her like a tiger hologram
girls scratch me up like a tiger hologram

Of the Importance of Silliness

I got thinking yesterday, pondering on the question “what makes a good relationship?” And sure, there’s the fluff, the communication and the ability to compromise, all that good stuff. But being able to be silly with your partner is also such an important concept??? So I give you:

Les Amis (and Co) being silly with their significant others

Enjolras & Grantaire: Grantaire has the habit of bursting into song about everything and anything, narrating his surroundings, drumming on every available surface and making rhymes up as he goes. Enjolras is more often than not at the heart of the songs, so he tries to retaliate with spontaneous songs of his own concerning Grantaire. Poorly.
They end up talking in rhymes sometimes, making “alas” rhyme with “jackass”, “meme” with “supreme”…

Courfeyrac & Combeferre: Courfeyrac is an amateur of fine memeing and never fails an opportunity to slip in a little “wow much doge” meme, quickly infecting Combeferre. They also “speak” whale around the flat, like Dory in Finding Nemo, because they find it hilarious.

Joly & Bossuet & Musichetta: Always up for a challenge, they watch those “Try not to Smile or Laugh” challenge videos together. Except they brought a variation. Every time one of them laughs, that person has to put a marshmallow in their mouth. It ends up with them looking like hamsters, crying with laughter, watching each other snort and spitting out marshmallow paste.
It’s grand.

Bahorel & Feuilly: They dare each other. And double dog dare each other if needed. And it’s not like the game ever freaking ends, because they both want to win that unwinnable game, okay? As a Broadway enthusiast, Bahorel knows all duet songs and choregraphies by heart, and brings Feuilly along for a two man show in their kitchen. Feuilly makes most of the lyrics up.

Jehan & Montparnasse: They send each other snaps constantly. And not the cute kind. They pull the worst faces, use the worst filters. Even when they’re in the same room, they try to make each other laugh via snapchat. Parnasse trusts Jehan not to screenshot the ugliest ones. That is real hardass trust right there

Eponine & Cosette: They speak PTA mom. To each other. And it’s very hard not to crack up, because they call each other suburban mom names with a high pitched voice, saying they want to see the manager at the mildest “inconvenience”. Eponine makes a very convincing tiger mom when she wips her fringe and purses her lips, and Cosette gets fits of laughter every time

apparently i can’t stop thinking about this so

  • senior year, the theatre club somehow convinces mr. reyes to let them put on high school musical
  • honestly they probably just start chanting WILDCATS WILDCATS WILDCATS when they’re discussing what to put on (rich starts it, president christine is apprehensive but joins in) and he’s just tired of dealing with them
  • the roles:
    • jeremy is troy
    • christine is gabriella
    • brooke is sharpay
    • jake is chad
    • chloe is taylor
    • rich is ryan
    • jenna is kelsi
    • (michael is tech because honestly i think his anxiety would be too bad to be actually acting in front of So Many People. plus i cant find it atm but there’s an answer from tracz that says he does join tech crew in senior year)
  • jeremy is the Most Dramatic so naturally he fits as troy “run around an entire golf course for no apparent reason” / “i don’t want the team to find out i like to sing so i’ll burst into song during practice” bolton
  • everyone: we need to make christine less perfect she’s not working as a super geeky shy girl
    jeremy: just have her pretend science is theatre
    (it works to make her geeky but somehow that makes her more perfect?? oh well)
  • rich can hit those high notes holy hell
  • brooke isn’t a wonderful actor but she’s told “act like chloe” and that…….. works. they rewrite it so taylor & sharpay are a secret power couple because honestly,, biggest chemistry
  • as jeremy sings “MY HEAD’S IN THE GAME BUT MY HEART’S IN THE SOOOONGGGG” (his voice breaks halfway through. every damn time. reyes says it adds to the general Teenage Angst. he is so tired) michael snickers off-stage. rich just looks at him like “you’re in love with That”
    • he kinda shuts up during “stick to the status quo” though (relax, jake) “wait aren’t you supposed to be in this number too” “SHIT”

For some convoluted reason, everyone suddenly starts involuntarily bursting into song “Buffy: Once More with Feeling"-style.

Everyone in the crew has their own musical number revolving around their current thoughts and issues. Donut takes care of belting out the opening number, since he has such great range. Sarge sings about building robots with Lopez. Simmons sings about his dreams and ambitions.

Grif can feel it coming but has no power to stop it and starts singing a soulful love ballad to Simmons.

Simmons malfunctions.
