Mother’s Day

REQUEST: Can you write like a super fluffy blurb where it’s mother’s day and Harry and your kids just wake you up with cuddles and kisses and (like your other one-shot My Love, My Life My Always) he shares a pic of you and your kids cuddling and laughing and its pure fluuuffffff

A few of you have also been asking for fluff recently, so here it is! Sending so much love to you all. x

“C’mon, bugs…nice an’ quiet now.”

“We know Daddy, yeh don’t have to keep remindin’ us,” your little boy explained, causing you to giggle quietly from your place in bed.

Usually you would be up and out of bed already, preparing breakfast with Harry before you needed to go wake your twins up for the day. But Harry had made a huge fuss the night before about you getting the chance to sleep in—however, your sleep schedule had been to synced to your children and your morning routine that you had been laying in bed awake for a half an hour now.

You closed your eyes and tried to stay as still as possible when you heard your bedroom door open slowly. Harry’s steps were paired with another set of quicker ones, and it took everything you had in you not to flip over and look at your loves.

“Daddy, can we wake her up now?” Your son whispered as quietly as he could manage, which was still pretty loud.

“Yes, go wake her, loves.”

You waited a few seconds, hyperaware of your breathing and whether or not it would be fast or slow enough.

Suddenly, you heard two pairs of little feet pattering against the floor as your babies ran into your bedroom.

I love how Blizzard took the Mei “is thin” fanboys that basically humilliated people for wanting chubby Mei and said FUCK YOU to their faces world wide live!


Lots of these people were a bunch if assholes saying “we dont have a problem with a fat mei but why does she have to be fat/chubby why cant she be skinny?” When sometimes the only reasin they liked fat/chubby Mei was to sexualize her that was the only exception which congrats you sick fuck for only seeing chubby and fat girls as sex objects instead of human beings who EXIST AND JUST WANT TO BE ACCEPTED!!!

Listen here you fucking prick you have like 5 other female characters who are skinnier than sticks for you to sexualize and drool by we only want representation even if its with one character were not asking much and you still want to take it from us, now i ask you whats the issues with her being fat/chubby why cant she be fat/chubby? There. Isnt. So I hope you asshole can back the fuck up and leave us to celebrate this wonderful short and achievement and let us bask in the representation that has been given to us!

And thank you Blizzard for making me feel like body matters and its actually fucking acceptable in this society like its the least important fact of my life.

And incase non of you have seen my cosplay pictures and start saying im probably a fat chick with health issues whos super insecure id let u know im perfectly healthy and chubby girl that weight 150 pounds whos pants constantly break at the thighs cause theyre too big and get wedgies cause my fat ass is too big for my panties, who does aerial silks and lifts heavy groceries and beer at work almost every day and walks to all my classes, which some are cross campus, who has been told fat her entire life just cause of societies fucked up beauty standards! It took me almost a year to let my boyfriend touch me or see me in my underwear cause of the crippling anxiety and insecurity i used to have cause of so many years of mental abuse about my weight i thought he was gonna leave ne cause of my weight and he helped me be more in love with my body after he accidently made a fat degrading joke involving one of the characters i wanted to cosplay at that time and i broke down in tears infront of him, i used to cry myself to sleep and starve myself cause of my self hate and couldnt lose weight still cause if my slow metabolism and I still get told im fat even though i eat less and do exercise for months. You can go mind your fucking business its my body and you cant tell me if im pretty or not cause of my weight i dont owe you shit.


anonymous asked:

do u think you could ever make a walkthrough on how u do portraits? if not that's totally fine too it's just that i'm absolutely fascinated and stunned by your style

This gave me something to do this morning, thanks. This isn’t super in depth cause I don’t even really know how to explain without just saying “learn how to paint in photoshop” but this is just the method that works best for me idk. :) I pretty much exclusively use a hard round brush turning transfer on and off when i need different opacity levels.

Rowaelin Wedding Headcannon

So I know they’re already married, but after the war in tog7, I really hope they have an actual wedding to celebrate NOBODY DYING. I’M LOOKING AT YOU SARAH

-Small and intimate wedding, but super extravagant and classy, cause hey, they’ve got good taste

-Aelin and Rowan decide not to have flowers (you know why), and instead they use pine needles for everything

-During the ceremony, Rowan makes it start snowing big fluffy snowflakes and Aelin keeps them warm idk its just so cute

-Rowan gets Nox to make Aelin’s ring


-Aedion as the best man (just imagine the pre-pep talk tho)((”Aedion I told you I’m not nervous” “Dude you’re shaking and you’ve already spontaneously shifted three times” “Do-do you think she’ll say yes??” “Do you realize you’re already married??”)) this brotp tho

-Fleetfoot is the ring bearer that lil bby so cute

-they have a string band to perform the ceremony and first dance music

-their fist dance is the song Celeana went to see every year at the orchestra


-During their first dance Rowan starts softly singing in her ear and Aelin starts humming along

-Lysandra making Aedion dance with her and pulling him onto the dance floor

-Same with Dorian and Manon…except Dorian gets punched

-Aedion fussing over his brothers hair constantly and Rowan just swatting him away but secretly loving it oh no brotp feels i cant do this

-the entire cadre showing up and being super happy for them and bringing really meaningful presents

-Aelin’s simple but  g o r g e o u s  wedding dress (bonus: its backless so you can see her tats)

-Aelin’s pine ‘flower’ crown instead of her actual crown

-Lysandra catching the bouquet


-Aedion watching her catch the bouquet and looking at Rowan like “About time”

-Aedion proposing the night of the wedding but him and Lys agree to keep it secret for a few days as to not steal Aelin & Rowan’s thunder. 

-When they tell everyone they’re all really relieved cause “We just thought Lysandra was pregnant” (that was Aelin btw) and Lys just goes along with it and is like “Well….” And Aelin & Lys just watch the color drain from Aedion’s face and laugh and booty bump(don’t tell me they don’t do that) While Rowan just rolls his eyes

-Rowan & Aelin deciding not to go on a honeymoon because all they want after fighting for so long is to be safe at home with their family….and to be surrounded by thick walls…

-Aelin & Rowan getting the happily ever after they deserve<3

Another salt and burn was over. After digging up the grave, the boys and you decided to take showers and high tail it out of town tonight.
You showered and put on the only relatively clean shirt and bra you had left for the week and found a pair of only semi dirty dark wash blue jeans. Sure you had worn the shirt and bra earlier in the week but you had to flirt with a security guard to get some info about the case, you only wore it for like an hour, so it didn’t count.

The Girl Who Pt. 1

Author’s note: Hey beautifuls!!! As promised, this is my new series for Teen Wolf 😁😁 Again, this is in honor for the final 10 episodes of Teen Wolf airing this Sunday (I’m not ready 😰😭😅) Happy Friday and Happy Reading 😘😘!!!

“Shhhh…It’s okay. You’re okay, you don’t have to be scared, you’re safe now,” Y/n says calmly to the curly-haired boy bunched in a ball in a semi-dark corner in the stuffy loft; the only light coming from the ray of sun piercing through the window opening. Y/n crouches down to the boy and immediately, he clings to her, leaving hot and wet stains on the red flannel she borrowed from her best friend.
“Is he okay?” a raspy voice cries.
“He’s fine. Get up, Isaac!” a dominant and rough voice commands.
Isaac tries to obey his Alpha but his body won’t respond, all he can do is clutch onto the gentle girl in front of him. “Are you alright? Y/n asks pulling away only to grab ahold his face. He doesn’t say anything; his glowing eyes bore into hers as they puddle with fright and embarrassment; the werewolf’s face heats her soft hands. She pulls him into her again rubbing his sweaty back soothingly as she continues bringing him back to reality.
He and Derek were battling, Derek was teaching him how to use anger to fuel his strength when his mind took him back to that bloody icebox, and he panicked and tried to run away. He almost made it out the loft until a sweet voice called his name causing him to back himself into the corner, knowing she’d follow and comfort him. He only has control whenever Y/n is around; little did she know that she was his safe place.
“Isaac,” Derek scolds, causing everyone to look at the Alpha, “You’re gonna get yourself killed if you can’t control those flashbacks.”
“I can’t help it,” Isaac whimpers, sniffling up the last few tears as he melts into the alleviating arms of the girl in front of him.
Y/f/n Y/l/n; the girl who chose to befriend kids a year younger than her because her age group, in her words, suck. She’s the girl who has spent the last four years consecutively watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S and sobs on “The Last One” episode every single time as if it were her first time seeing it. She’s the girl who proudly listens to Disney Movie soundtracks and reads Twilight. The girl who only laughs at cheesy puns until her stomach bursts and only eats Italian, Hispanic and Asian foods because they’re made with passion. The girl whose retaken Metaphysics three times because she loves the class. The girl who, can always be found walking or sitting in the woods/forest because, to her, it’s serene. The girl who wears her heart on her sleeve and would die for the boy in her arms or any of the 8 circled around them Allison, Erica, Boyd, Derek, Scott, Stiles, Lydia and yes, even Peter.
“I thought turning into a werewolf is supposed to make you stronger not weaker,” Erica speaks up.
The pack quickly noticed the once sick girl, she belittles others any chance she gets now to compensate for her bullied past. To Y/n, Erica was misled into this life because she was misunderstood.
“It does make you stronger, sometimes it takes a little longer to get used to your new abilities. However, Little Miss Sunshine treating Isaac-Pooh like a baby, doesn’t help,” Peter seethes.
“Don’t talk to her like that!” Scott growled.
They’re all super protective of her; maybe it’s because of her gentle and loving spirit or maybe its cause she’s older. Or maybe it’s because she always knows the right things to say and do. Or it could be simply because she’s Y/f/n Y/l/n, the girl who only sees good in people and somehow brings out that goodness in everyone, yes, even Peter.
“Trust me Isaac, I know all about family issues—Hi nephew,” Peter breaks as he sarcastically smiles and waves at Derek who rolls his eyes.
“But while Y/n and you are playing Dr. Phil, two Alpha twins morphed into one giant Alpha and has just ripped you both to shreds. Is that what you all want?” Peter spits, causing everyone to do Derek’s dramatic eye roll.
“Isaac, you need to forget about Daddy Dearest and pull it together!” Peter shouts at the now calm werewolf.
This isn’t the first time during training, Isaac’s mind flashed to his abusive past with his father, which Isaac hasn’t forgotten nor forgiven. Y/n thinks it’s because of Derek’s training method, to which Derek always respond, “It’s the only way I know how.” Isaac knows what they’re saying is true but he just can’t help it.
“Is it that time of the month or is your mission to be a douche to everyone?” the sarcastic boy asks.
“I’m sorry, please forgive me Stiles, for cherishing my life and not wanting to be killed,” Peter snaps back.
“You’re so selfish!” Allison speaks up.
“Yeah? I hope you told your aunt that as well when you found out what she did to my family!” he shouts at the hunter who lowers her head in shame.
“Look, we all have problems, whether its familial or other. What’s the big deal?” Lydia speaks up for her friend.
“You’re exactly right Lydia. We all have our own problems, but right now we’re all facing the same problem. An Alpha problem, there’s a whole frickin’ pack of them!” Peter screams.
“Sorry but, Peter’s right, I’m not dying on nobody’s watch,” Boyd speaks up.
“Oh, so he does speak!” Stiles gasps as he starts a slow clap.
“Are you that annoying or is your mission to irritate the life out of everyone you encounter?” Peter mocks.
“Stop!” Y/n shouts and everyone hushes, “You’re all right!” She removes herself from the heated wolf, straightening out Stiles, her flannel and faces the others.
“We need to be on guard of the vicious Alpha pack that is willing, in fact, thrilled to kill all of you to get to Derek and maybe Scott,” she says shifting her eyes to her best friend who gives her of look of, why-did-you-say-that.
“Possibly Scott? What do you mean, Y/n?” Erica asks.
“It’s not certain,” Derek says.
“But it is a possibility,” Peter rebuttals.
“What’s a possibility?” Allison asks, “Scott?” she asks again when no one answers her.
Y/n looks to Scott, asking with her eyes if it’s okay if she can elaborate and he nods at her.
“When Scott was saving Deaton, he was trying to walk through Mountain Ash,” Y/n starts.
“Ha! How did that work out for ya?” Erica jokes.
“Erica,” Y/n says softly and Erica lowers her head, “Although he didn’t break through, Deaton saw something,” she says walking towards Scott. “His eyes were flickering red. Like an Alpha,” Y/n finishes standing by Scott’s side.
“What?” Lydia, Allison, Erica, and Boyd all say at the same time.
“How is that even possible? Scott didn’t kill an Alpha,” Allison asks.
“Well, it’s extremely rare, only seen every hundred or so years, where a Beta, through goodwill and strength of character, can become an Alpha without killing one,” Scott answers.
“Yeah, they call it a True Alpha,” Stiles adds moving to stand next to his two best friends.
“So, this pack could be after Scott as well?” Allison asks turning to face Scott who’s already looking at her.
“Yes, Allison, which is why we need to train harder than ever, to protect both Derek and Scott,” Y/n says causing Derek, Peter, Erica, and Boyd to give a “told-you-so” look at the others. “But!” she continues holding up a manicured finger, courtesy of Lydia Martin, “We must be mindful that Isaac is dealing with something none of us have experienced and we should be patient with him,” she says turning back around to face the hazel-eyed boy. “Derek, what good is numbers if your Beta isn’t well?” she asks the wolf who shrugs; he knows she’s right Isaac shouldn’t fight, honestly none of these kids should even be in this situation.
“I’ll tell you what good numbers is,” Peter starts.
“Peter, Isaac being in the state that he is will only weaken Derek,” Y/n turns to look at him.
“She’s right, Derek and you know it,” Scott agrees.
“We’re all going to help you Isaac, we’re here for you, even Peter,” she continues as she crouches down to him as Peter rolls his eyes but he knows he’ll do it if she asks. “Isaac, yes Derek is stronger in numbers, but your overall being is worth more than some stupid, territorial dog fight,” Y/n tells him.
“Stupid fight?” Peter gasps unbelievably, “I’m sorry but am I the only one who actually comprehends the heat we’re up against? Y/n, this isn’t some stupid dogfight, oh no, this will be a bloodbath and everyone single one of us will be drowning in it; that includes you Mother Theresa,” Peter snaps at her.
“Shut up, Peter!” Isaac cracks.
“I’ll remember that when Kali’s claws are meters away from your throat and sweet ol’ daddy pops in that curly little head of yours!” Peter tantalizes.
“Enough!” Derek shouts. “Isaac, can you or can you not fight?” Derek demands from him, as he marches over and stands over the Beta.
“Der, please,” Y/n says putting herself between the two, “I know you’re worried and trust me I’m doing everything I can to find a way to help you, but don’t intimidate him,” Y/n says to her dear friend as she grabs his hands and holds them near her heart.
“I’m not trying to intimidate him, Y/n,” Derek says defeatedly, “I-I just need to know,” he finishes; Y/f/n Y/l/n, the girl who managed to sweeten the Sour Wolf.
“I can fight,” Isaac says softly but they all heard it loud and clear. “As long as Y/n is nearby,” he finishes.
“Absolutely not!” Scott and Stiles shout.
“Are you insane?” Peter asks.
“We’re not letting her anywhere near them,” Allison says firmly.
“I can’t believe you said that?” Lydia says at the same time Erica asks, “What is wrong with you?” Boyd looks disapprovingly.
“Well why not? Lydia is gonna be there!” Isaac shouts back.
“Lydia’s not human! She’s—something that screams when people die,” Stiles shouts back at him.
“Y/n can’t come, Isaac,” Derek says after everyone stops yelling their nays causing Y/n to look back at Derek.
“I can’t do this without her, she’s my anchor,” Isaac says softly. “She’s the only one who can bring me back if I do have another flashback,” he adds as he stands up pulling Y/n away from Derek. “I know it’s a lot I’m asking, Y/n. But I don’t think I can do it without you, Y/n,” he says, his large hands wrapping around her small ones.
Without a second to ponder, “I’ll do it,” Y/n tells him staring into his pleading eyes.
“No, you’re not,” Scott states matter-factly and marches next to Y/n, pulling her away from Isaac’s stare. “Y/n I can’t let you do this,” Scott pleads with his best friend.
“Yeah, and I’m not letting ya,” Stiles speaks up standing next to Scott.
Y/n looks between her two best friends, who are more like the brothers whom she always dreamed of; it sucked being the only child.
“As much as I hate to agree with Scotty Boy and his idiotic sidekick, he’s right,” Peter says, “Y/n, as much as no one believes it, I don’t want to see you hurt or killed for that matter,” Peter finishes smiling softly at Y/n and surprising everyone in the room.
Everyone except for Y/n, even when Peter mocks and snaps at her she knows it’s coming from a good place. Sure, the man is selfish and manipulative but he’s only doing what he feels is necessary to protect himself. “The man watched his family burn to ashes,” she pleads with her friends whenever they’d express their hatred for Peter. You can’t treat someone bad for wanting secure their safety, right?
“I know you care about me, Peter,” Y/n smiles at him, “And Scott and Stiles, I for damn sure know you care about me,” she continues, “All of you care, because we’re family and yes, that includes Peter,” she says causing a few to chuckle, however Scott, Stiles and Derek didn’t find the humor. “Think about how much you care for me, now multiply that by 10,000. That’s how much I care for all of you. So, if I have to risk my life to make sure only one of you is safe, I’ll do it. I need to be there so Isaac will be fine, which might save Derek, which benefits everyone. You guys have to look at the big picture,” Y/n bargains with her friends.
“Oh okay, I’m looking at the big picture now,” Stiles starts as he closes his eyes, “The werewolves are battling; I have my bat and I’m watching from a distance,” he pauses to open his eyes, “Because let’s be honest, I’m not gonna stay inside Roscoe,” he chuckles and closes his eyes again. “Yep, I see Lydia screaming bloody murder in the woods somewhere because I’m betting the Darach will strike again tonight; Allison is shooting arrows and daggers, and you, Y/n, are at home studying for the Statistics midterm you got coming up,” Stiles finishes opening his eyes, although it seemed funny, everyone knew he serious.
“Oh, look, I see the picture too,” Y/n says with sarcasm, closing her eyes “I finish studying, haul ass to the fight and I’m there for Isaac because he needs me,” she finishes.
“Y/n come on, you’re not seriously considering this are you?” Allison queries her big-hearted friend. Allison has always admired Y/n’s bravery, how did the sweetest girl manage to make Peter Hale care about someone other than himself, they all wonder to this day.
“Guys I appreciate your concern for me but—
“No, Y/n if you show up you become a liability,” Derek cuts her off, his way of preventing his confidant from getting killed, “The second the Alpha Pack gets their hands on you it’s over.”
“I’m already a liability! Don’t forget, they’ve been here for a while, meaning they’ve been watching us. Do you know how many times Aiden has either offered to take me home or go back to his place?”
“WHAT?!” Scott, Derek, and Isaac shout.
“When?!” Derek demands.
“I’m gonna rip his throat out!” Isaac shouts.
“Before or after, you’re nightmare of Daddy?” Peter taunts him.
“Look at you! They see how you guys protect me, who’s to say they’re not at my house right now waiting for me?” she challenges.
“Damn it, she’s right!” Derek curses while pulling at his hair he starts pacing back and forth.
“Is that true Derek? There could be a pack of Alphas waiting for her?” Scott says worriedly, feeling himself beginning to shift.
“Hey, hey, calm down, Scott. I was only being hypothetical,” she says calming her friend down,
“Well don’t be! You know I hate when you do that!” he shouts back at her, his fangs shooting out.
“I’m sorry, Scott, I didn’t mean to upset you,” she tells her glowing-eyed friend.
“Scott, look at me, I’m going to be okay,” she says hugging him making him relax in her arms as he shifts back.
“I’m sorry, Y/n” he says with puppy eyes; he’d almost broke his promise of ever wolfing out on her again. When Scott first got bit, Y/n noticed all the attention he was getting and she desired for that as well. She thought if she became a werewolf, her parents would stay home more and pay attention to her. She let it slip once that Derek proposed to give her the bite and how she was considering it and that made Scott furious. He’d die before he let any of his friends receive this curse. He didn’t know how to control it back then so he wolfed out and nearly attacked Y/n until Allison came to her rescue. Y/n forgave him immediately and Scott promised her, he’d never get that angry at her ever again.
“It’s okay, Scott. I understand, I’d do the same if anything ever happened to you,” she says rubbing his shoulders. “Which is why you need to let me be there for Isaac, so I can save you,” she continues, sincerity dripping from every caring word. “Please Scott,” she begs once more before walking away from him.  
Allison walks up behind Scott and rests her hand on his shoulder, “We can’t stop her, look at her,” she tells him as they all turn around to see Y/n caressing her thumb across Isaac’s tear-stained cheeks, “Her mind is already made up. I can see it in her eyes,” Allison continues as Scott turns around to completely face her, “It’s the same look I had when I wanted avenge my mother,” she confesses glancing at Derek before looking down at her feet.
“Y/n, are you gonna be there for me?” Isaac asks softly only wanting her to hear but in a room of werewolves he knew that was impossible. They stand for together for a while getting lost into each other’s eyes; their hands find their way back home, intertwined together.
“Always,” she replies smiling at the sweet boy. She will save Isaac, she thinks to herself.
“Y/n the second they see you— Peter starts.
“Then I won’t get caught,” Y/n sasses as she walks out of the loft pulling Isaac with her.
And no one stopped her because they knew Y/f/n Y/l/n, the girl who’d put her life at risk for the disturbed, curly-haired werewolf whom she was in love with.

i have this hc that as adults Deku, Shouto and Katsuki just alternate between the first 3 ranks depending on which one left to get lunch first and everyone just gets tired of not knowing who is n°1 that day and decide that all 3 get the first rank. So Katsuki is just so angry he could explode, Deku is just like "ehh.. i guess" and Shouto just thinks it's super useful 'cause why have one simbol of peace when you can have three.. also he thinks bakugou actually exploding of anger is hillarious

hahahah I love this!!! GOOD END FOR EVERYONE

The new kid part 3



The rest of the week was pretty normal — I mean, I guess I mean normal for the beginning of the school year, ‘cause at the beginning of the school year everything’s always a little bit weird because everyone’s getting used to being back. And it’s weirder this year because it’s a new school with more kids, and because some kids didn’t come back from last year, 'cause either they died 'cause of the Hunger or they moved or switched schools.

They made everyone see a shrink before school began, to make sure nobody was crazy or too sad. I overheard a couple of teachers talking about PTSD, and that sort of thing.

But school’s school. It’s just classes and stuff, and that’s not really different even though we have to move classrooms and there’s more homework. And everyone’s friends are sorta getting decided – Angus is definitely part of our group now, along with a couple of other kids from other elementary schools. Dana even stopped teasing me about liking him, but I think she’s just waiting for a better opportunity.

And I joined the magic club, which is meeting next week for the first time! I’m trying to get Angus to join with me, because Dana and Kelly said they didn’t want to cause it sounded boring, and we already take magic during school, who wants to do more of it during our free time?

Which, I get. But Angus is kind of a nerd, and he likes magic, so I think he’d like it. I joined 'cause I want to be better at magic and in class we’re still doing prestidigitation and talking about spell safety, and we don’t do first-level spells until like, eighth grade. Angus says that in eighth grade honors they’re gonna do second level spells next quarter maybe, and I’m super jealous. I made him promise to show me how to do some first level spells and he said “Okay, sure, but I’m not great at most of them yet,” but Angus has high standards for himself and I bet his not great is perfectly fine.

I’m going to his house tomorrow, so that’s exciting! I’m like, weirdly curious about his parents, 'cause he mentions them a lot. Not a weird amount, but like, more than normal. Like, I never mention my mom unless I have to, but Angus will say something and be like “Oh, my mom/dad/aunt showed me that.” And even after the first day, his lunches are always crazy pretty, and they look really tasty, and he admitted that his “T-dad used to have a cooking show,” which explained thingd. And he knows all sorts of weird stuff — like how to make bombs! and how to carve stuff. And he doesn’t know a lot of other normal stuff, like the newest band that everyone’s listening to, or like, old cartoons everyone watched when they were a kid, and stuff like that.

It’s not bad, though! Just weird. I should probably ask him where he moved from.


Between sixth and seventh period, both me and Angus were getting some books out of our lockers, so I said hi to him, and he said hi to me, and then kind of shifted around and was like 'Uh, Nicky?“

and I was like "Yeah?”

and he was like “Um, you know how I mention my family sometimes? Like I call them dad and mom and stuff?”

and I was like “Yeah?” cause I didn’t know where he was going with this.

He looked really guilty for a moment, which is dumb, because it’s not even like he was really lying and was like “I usually don’t call them that, I’ve just been doing it because I didn’t want people to know who they were at school, but you’re coming to my house tomorrow so I just wanted you to know that, sorry I lied.”

And I was like “Oh, it’s okay,” because it’s not like I minded that Angus was trying to be normal, everyone at school tries to be normal. “Are they famous?”

And he was like, “Um. Define famous.”

But then the bell rang and we had to scramble to get to seventh period. Jeez! For a guy who calls himself a detective, he sure leaves a lot of mysteries behind!


After school, we walked out again together, this time with Dana and Fred, and as soon as we walked out the door there was a dragonborn woman waving at us. I didn’t know who she was, but Angus waved back excitedly, and ran off with a quick “Bye guys, see you tomorrow Nicky!”

“Is that a dragonborn?” Fred said, goggling. “Why does Angus know a dragonborn?”

“Stop being racist, Fred,” Dana said.

“But he’s human?” Fred protested. “I’m just saying it’s weird.”

“Angus can know whoever he wants,” I said, and waved at the two of them.

Then Dana said, “More importantly, Nicky, you’re hanging out with Angus tomorrow?”

“Yeah,” I said, trying to be cool about it. “I’m going over to his place, and he’s gonna show me how to cast magic missile.”

Dana grinned, and said, “You li-i-i-ike him,” and then I had to hit her in the arm and one of the crossing guards yelled at us for being rowdy.


breakin’ it off here cause it’d get too long if i wrote the actual visit - stay tuned, lmao. 

i know nicky is using pretty myeh language re: mental health, but she’s a kid and not super in tune with the nuances of how to word things in a good way. 

you know how something is super fuckin cool but its also weird and technical behind the scenes and when youre a kid and being forced to do it it succccccks yeah, thats magic. ……teaching middle schoolers magic seems like a bad idea, you know?

If someone was tortured with electrocution repeatedly, what would be the likely effects? As in, what would she be feeling as she was being electrocuted, directly after electrocution, and a short while after it? She's being tortured so the people can try to bring out her powers (it's a superhero novel) except she doesn't actually know what her powers are and has never used them, nor has a lot of idea what they actually want from her. What other types of torture would you suggest for this?

I don’t use ‘You Break It You Bought It’ often. But I don’t think I can help you in terms of what might cause your super powered character to manifest powers.

Real torture victims don’t tend to manifest super powers and I think what causes powers to manifest, that’s a detail of your world that I think you need to figure out for yourself.

If it is as simple as pain, fear, stress and trauma then almost all tortures are equal in that regard. They cause the same symptoms, the same mental health problems, the same trauma. So it doesn’t matter what particular technique is used.

Electrical torture is pretty wide spread globally but it isn’t used everywhere. The other torture techniques used are likely to depend on where the torturer characters are from. Different countries have different ‘National Styles’ of torture.

The UK stands out as a country that tends to avoid electrical torture (the British have instead relied on stress positions). The USA and France both use electrical torture along with waterboarding. Israel uses children’s furniture. Most Middle Eastern countries use falaka. China currently seems to be using restraint tortures (which may represent a change in practice since Rejali published ‘Torture and Democracy’).

Beatings, sleep deprivation, solitary confinement, starvation and uncomfortably hot/cold cells are all common world wide.

Without more context on either the country and time period the story is set in or why the characters think torture will produce super powers I can’t really suggest anything further.

Electric shocks however I can help you with.

A quick note on terminology: electrocution usually refers to a lethal process. It means someone is killed by an electric shock. I’m assuming that you want to discuss repeated electric shocks.

How this affects a character really varies pretty widely depending on how it’s done.

Electrical torture has changed drastically over the ~100 years it’s been around. Rejali devotes about a third of his book to cataloguing this change.

Part of why I mention this is because the best survivor account I have on electrical torture comes from the Franco-Algerian war and is about a form of electrical torture that is not common anymore.

Electrical torture now mostly involved Tasers and stun guns. In the not-so-distant-past the dominant form used a device called a magneto: a small, hand-cranked portable device which was often used to power military field equipment, especially telephones.

Both the modern and magneto methods rarely leave scars or external marks. They’re both extremely painful. They can both kill.

Searching for misuse of Tasers turns up a lot of advocacy groups, a lot of videos of people around the world being tortured by police, and not very many victim accounts.

In fact my searching this morning has turned up more quotes from the families of victims than the victims themselves. Which is quite a worrying sign and I think backs up Rejali’s point that Tasers undermine basic oversight and accountability.

For your purposes I think going back to Henri Alleg’s account from the Franco-Algerian war is probably alright, so long as it’s the sensation and pain rather than the equipment that’s the focus.

You might want to read Alleg’s book which covers the month or so he was tortured by French troops: The Question is one of the definitive modern victim accounts and well worth a read.

This is how Alleg describes electrical torture:

He attached one of them [clips] to the lobe of my right ear and the other to a finger on the same side.
Suddenly I leapt in my bonds and shouted with all my might. Cha- had just sent a first electrical charge through my body. A flash of lightning exploded next to my ear and I felt my heart racing in my breast. I struggled, screaming, and stiffened until the straps cut into my flesh. All the while the shocks controlled by Cha-, magneto in hand, followed each other without cease.’

They shout questions at him. Alleg responds-

‘Between two spasms, I turned my head towards him and said, “You are wrong to do this. You will regret it!”’

Alleg screams a good deal and the torturers gag him with his shirt.

‘Suddenly I felt as if a savage beast had torn the flesh from my body. Still smiling above me, Ja- had attached the pincer to my penis. The shocks going through me were so strong that the straps holding me to the board came loose. They stopped to tie them again and we continued.’


‘After a while the lieutenant took the place of Ja-. He had removed the wire from one of the pincers and fastened it down along the entire width of my chest. The whole of my body was shaking with nervous shocks, getting even stronger in intensity, and the session went on interminably. They had thrown cold water over me in order to increase the intensity of the current and between every two spasms I trembled with cold.’

That’s all one session, Alleg’s first ‘session’ of torture which ends shortly after. It would be remiss of me not to say that during this Alleg instructed his torturers to stop addressing him with the informal ‘tu’ and reminded them that this was illegal repeatedly. He also describes screaming a very great deal.

He’s then beaten and subjected to verbal abuse throughout. This is pretty typical.

The torturers bring in one of his friends who has been tortured and then beat Alleg some more before passing him back for electrical torture.

He describes the second session thus:

Instead of the sharp and rapid spasms that seemed to tear my body in two, it was now a greater pain that took possession of all my muscles and tightened them in longer spasms. I was taut in my bonds. I tightened my teeth on the gag with all my might and kept my eyes closed.’

The torturers then give up on magnetos and subject him to near-drowning. He’s beaten, burnt, suspended and then thrown into a cell. This was all on the first day following his arrest and shows the typical pattern of torturers: using as many techniques as they can and inflicting as much pain and damage as possible, as fast as possible.

So far as I can remember these are the chief descriptions of the sensation of electric shocks in Alleg’s book.

I hope that helps. :)


Remember who you were before the fame:

Sometimes you cannot help but be concerned for people when they let a glorified number of follows, messages, views, ect go to their head, and they become someone different.

Watching people change into a glory hound and instantly shit on people and the way they do things is just so depressing—whether it’s right or wrong in your view, learn to leave well enough alone. Your follow count or who you’re friends with shouldn’t mean a damn thing at the end of the day—it does not give you power nor does it give you the right.

You’re still a bully, and a part of those fans are probably just looking for gif and image reblogs over your works and don’t care who you are as a person. I’d be careful with who I become and who I choose as my friend; especially on this toxic website as you never know who only cares to use you and your blog as a platform over true friendship.

Head cannon for secret Santa with the team

Secret Santa with the team would involve :

  • It’s Garcia’s idea, duh.
  • Everyone very reluctantly agrees, cause its Garcia. You physically cant say no to that ray of sunshine.
  • A week long debate on the price limit
  • “How about 50″ “Rossi shut up we know you are going to cross the limit no matter what, plus all of us ain’t rolling in cash. Make it 25″
  • It basically ends when Garcia gets everyone to vote and legit everyone goes against Rossi, cause come on they aren’t rolling in cash.
  • Everyone wants Garcia cause its the easiest, no one wants Hotch cause its the hardest.
  • JJ knows exactly what to get and probably gets you the best present ever.
  • Also that one friend who buys everyone a present, regardless of who they got.
  • Reid would have a super difficult time cause though he is very intelligent, he isn’t really good with the whole present thing.
  • But in all honesty it goes pretty well, he gets Prentiss and gets her the original cover of slaughter house 5 signed by Kurt Vonnegut to frame.
  • I think she probably nearly kills him with her hug.
  • Rossi obviously goes over the limit with his present.
  • He gets Morgan, probably buys him expensive alcohol.
  • Morgan also nearly kills Rossi with his hug.
  • Garcia gets Hotch and she makes him something super sweet.
  • Maybe she takes one of Jack’s drawings and embroiders it on a piece of cloth, or maybe makes him a cape that says ‘jack’s hero’
  • He also probably kills her, but not with a hug. A smile, a big teary eyed smile.
  • I think Garcia’s present is just seeing everyone happy and safe for once, I also think she probably would never have put her name in the hat to begin with.
  • If Hotch gets JJ , he finds a way to get her a week off, somewhere nice like the Bahamas so she can be with her family.
  • She literally almost burst into tears and says it wasn’t necessary about a million times.
  • Everyone gets what they wanted, although whoever got Reid probably gets him a gag joke (*cough* Morgan *cough*) like a resident geek shirt or something.
  • He wears it, for days until JJ forces him to wash it.
  • Prentiss gets Rossi, and after 3 weeks of thinking gets him an apron that says ‘ I’m Italian , I don’t need a recipe’ which is so Rossi.
  • At first he’s like “I would never say that” but then laughs and he really does use it.

i know heaps of larries seem to not care cause they're only focusing on harry but why do you think louies are also ignoring the shit promo and everything else louis is going through

I tried to answer this yesterday anon and failed. I just don’t know other than perhaps the suggestion Alex (@louehevolution) made in her tags to an answer I gave… that we’ve all become desensitised and exhausted and its just more bearable to believe things will be all right, and Louis is super happy behind the scenes and he isn’t up against the career and image sabotage some of us believe he’s up against.  

I really cant explain otherwise but I do know what you mean. Its everywhere through Louis fandom: the determination to insist that its all fine really, that the patchy, amateurish, alienating, ineffective promo we’ve seen proves Sony/Syco/Epic want to do well for him (hey they had people in their offices applaud him, anon- what more do you want?) but are just bumbling incompetents who may yet manage to get things right for Louis, the way they miraculously appear to do right off the bat for their other clients.  Maybe things will change if they’re suddenly convinced there may be money in it for them, though somehow that fact has escaped them until now. That or they just don’t have the resources to help Louis promote his single or launch his career. They spend that on everyone else they want to succeed.

Then theres the well spread theory that  Sony have decided that ‘Louis fandom will do all the work’, even though *no* label would do that in a billion *years* if they wanted a client to really succeed (because it doesnt work without label backing as JHO proved even when Louis support was at its peak). Thats a particularly damaging and insidious ‘theory’ ofc because it also tacitly tells fans not to bother promoting the single to spite ‘lazy’ Sony taking advantage of us. Yet a lot of blogs treat that idea as gospel truth, because, Im told, ‘an insider’ blogged about it.  Then theres the lazy and incompetent Rusty/SJPR/Sony social media managers comedy trope.  Somehow they’re only lazy and incompetent when it comes to Louis. Again And no one ever explains why Louis - smart cookie Louis who signed a distribution deal - hired these people and has no control of how they’re handling or not handling his solo launch. 

I’veheard that the reason it cant possibly be sabotage, despite all evidence to the contrary, is because ‘no business would do something that might cost it some profit’. QED. Even though the music business and Sony in particular have proved repeatedly that they are willing to do just that for factors they perceive as more important in the long term. Usually control.  So why is that supposed to be the ultimate proof that Louis promo isn’t going down deliberately? Just accidentally. So thats all right then. 

Its inexplicable and depressing to me watching bright people who seem to genuinely care about Louis jumping through hoops to deny that all thats happened so far, suggests his solo career is being smothered and his brand degraded. But ‘everything’s fine for Louis except the stunts and a bit of incompetence but never mind’ is the predominant opinion in this fandom and you challenge it at your peril as @ithazzabelou and others have discovered.  So all that rambling is ultimate proof that I don’t know the answer to your question anon… have you tried asking a non Larry Louie?

why yall cracking at hairstyles rn? smh

Keith doesn’t even have a mullet, you fools, but i guess it could be mistaken as one if u dont know wtf a mullet is..


its business in the front party in the back not:

awkward stage of growing out longer hair.

which looks like this irl (Idk who tf this guy is btw)

its just medium length hair aka the Super Awkward Stage that most of us know and hate.

Lance is “”closer”” to a mullet than Keith is cause he has super short bangs (which are important for a mullet) & his “duck tails” and sideburns are growing out, but he still does not have one :

his haircut is just:

and we all know its true

Shiro has a weird army cut style (idk this guy either):

and its weird cause usually the front isnt as long as he has it:

but whatever i guess.

Hunk and Pidge’s hair is easily detected as middle part style with a nice headband and the above shoulders hair cut but the ends curl out a bit so i dont think those need pics


This was yesterday :) but as of today Wednesday August 26, 2015 I am 37 weeks pregnant. Some use to say this was full term but apparently its not any more but I still feel so close! Pretty sure I said this in the last post…but at my last appointment I was already dilated 3 cm so we’ll see if when I go on Friday if anything has changed. Highly doubt it, but you never know! ❤👶👣 everything else has been good I have just been super tired which sucks cause I have this crazy nesting feeling. But can’t wait to meet my son here very shortly. ❤

tbh i'm super glad baller got nerfed because it was stupidly hard to break and you can still use special power ups to make it more duable. i think they buffed it TOO much in the last update

SAME!! I had to use Object Shredder to stand a chance and even then it was easy enough to just detonate it before it broke, and the explosion range got me from WAY far away sometimes, even when I jumped away from it super early

A nerf isn’t gonna hurt its usability, or if they end up nerfing it so hard it ISNT usable, they’ll just adjust it back up a little later on. I haven’t been too disappointed with the changes yet (except for the Flyfish change in Salmon Run >8( VERY SALTY ABT THAT)
