& all things christmas

So how about an Otayuri mafia AU where Yurio is the rebellious troublemaker grandson of the mob boss and Otabek is hired to protect him (from himself, and others). Because I can’t stop thinking about it :’)

here are a bunch of fucking fantastic fics I’ve enjoyed and loved reading throughout the month of october. I recommend that you read these great fics in november, if you haven’t already!! also check out the Reverse Big Bang and 31 Days of Smut!

(all fics with a star are my favorites and if there are two stars then it was a favorite favorite)

1. Damn the Dark, Damn the Light 20k

“Why is this face of beauty ringing so true?” The genuine confusion in Harry’s voice causes Louis’ chest to painfully twinge. “You’re a complete stranger in my eyes, William Shakespeare, but not in my heart. How is that possible?”

Louis wants to live out every romance plot he has ever written in his own life. He wants to be the protagonist of his own narrative, the hero who finds true love and gets his happy ending. Instead, Louis is stuck with only dreaming of such wild fantasies and writing them down. He can create entire romances in his dreams, yet he can never live one.

2. Threadbare 20k**

Harry Styles was eight years old when Louis Tomlinson kept him from falling into a machine in a Manchester textile mill. He was 18 years old when nothing, not even the threat of death, could keep Harry from falling in love with Louis.

3. Don’t Come Down 6k

Louis takes Harry home to meet the family.

4. I’ll Take Your Pain 2k*

Or, soulmates have the ability to feel each other’s pain, and Harry finds his after getting his arse waxed.

I love the idea that for El’s first proper Christmas with everyone, Mike would go the extra mile to not just buy her anything, but really make something personal to show her how much he missed her.

Will, being Mike’s most creative friend, would give him a hand with this, as they spend hours crafting the perfect mixtape to give her. Mike tries to find the songs he always used to hear while she was away that made him think of her. Will would try to persuade him to put The Clash in there, and Jonathan would swing past the room and add his input with a couple of more obscure ideas. And of course, Mike would try to find all the Snow Ball songs. They’d finish the whole thing off by doodling on a special case to keep it in.

(Bonus thought: Mike and El just sit in the corner of the room listening to it late on Christmas Day, her head resting on his shoulder, before breaking out laughing as Hopper dad dances while bringing everyone dessert)

warming up

14 Oct 2017

  • long days in the library, with storms and snow outside
  • taking pictures of christmas lights in the streets
  • skiing in the mountains, feeling the cold air on my face 
  • visiting a café in the afternoon, shaking snowflakes out of my hair and ordering a hot chocolate
  • going ice-skating on an outdoors rink, enjoying the sunlight on my skin as i glide across the ice
  • wrapping presents on the floor while watching my favourite movie
  • snuggling up in warm pyjamas and fresh bedsheets, hearing the rain against the windows
  • lighting candles smelling like red apples, marshmallows, and cinnamon
  • the smell of cookies and bread fresh out of the oven 
  • taking a walk in the woods, seeing the sunlight shine through the leafless branches of the trees, breathing in deeply
  • rereading my favourite books, letting myself fall into the memories

Guys I- kept looking deeper and-

look what I found.


—How much time has this been in my inbox??????? I dIE????

when one of your favourite artists just gives you gift art and you just kind of-

I have no words for this.

I will now die thanks see ya tomorrow.

“We’re getting near that beautiful Christmas season that people don’t talk about anymore.”


“They don’t use the word Christmas because it’s not politically correct.”


But Lee! This is about an attack on the religious observance of Christmas! Those are all secularized Christmas things!

Silly me. How could I forget?

I mean…we’ll probably get more Nativity sets closer to the holiday and we get a big stack of advent calendars somewhere around mid-November. Oh! And the advent wreaths and the plaques that say ‘Jesus is the reason for the season’ and the already omnipresent signs with bible verses on it. This is just the stuff we have right now, three months before the actual month that the holiday takes place in. 

But yeah sure there’s a totally like no representation for Christians around Christmastime. 

And to his merit, as I was checking out today they didn’t wish me a merry Christmas. 

… because it was October 14.
