concept: I have a phd in linguistics. I have made enough money to live in a roomy apartment in washington dc. one day I am contacted by a government official. aliens have contacted us and I am the only one who can possibly decode their message. I show up at the white house in a black suit with a paisley scarf and floral sandals. a raven sits on my shoulder. “is that a crow,” the secret service asks. “no, it’s a raven,” I say. “the raven comes with me.” they have to allow both me and my raven into the white house. I succeed in decoding the aliens’ message. the aliens appear and invite me to go with them. I help them save the universe through linguistics.
This is a prayer to R'iia, the Teedos’ god. I don’t believe in her, and I don’t really understand it, but I like the way it makes me feel, so I put bits of it on pretty things I’ve found. And all of it here, of course. Maybe you will like how it makes you feel, too, you unlucky castaway.
- scratched out entry in the Scavenger’s journal. Who would have thought she liked poetry?
I just found your HC master post - omfg legend! Could you do the one with Itachi hitting on Sakura just to wind up Sasuke?
oh god most of that list like i would change so much about the way i answered lmao but im glad you find some enjoyment :P but for non-massacre!au, this is actually a really hella strong headcanon of mine. it’s partly cause i love itasaku too, but i mean… how amazing would that be:
Itachi literally knows his brother so well that it wouldn’t take long for him to figure out how hard Sasuke is crushing on Sakura from the very first time he’d bring her over for x reason that is totally and completely unrelated to romance (so, for homework/training/mission reasons).
They’re pretty young at that age tho, so the most Itachi does is to tease his little brother about his feelings, which of course Sasuke vehemently denies.
Until, of course, they’re about 17-18 and Sasuke is at this point like so fucking head over heels over Sakura but will not do a single thing about it, so Itachi is just…. boi u for real…. and just decides he’s gonna take things into his own hands
So he starts flirting with Sakura in small ways—and always in front of Sasuke; he tells her she’s grown very beautifully, brushes her cheek when Sakura blushes in response and whispers a shy thank you, and begins questioning her about every aspect of her life while he shares common interests. That makes Sasuke very annoyed, but boi still won’t do a thing.
Ofc then Itachi steps up his game and starts flirting with her more obviously; he starts touching her arm, putting a hand at her back when he guides her somewhere, proposing to help her out with the planning of her next mission, asking her out for “friendly” dinners… as always, only in front of his little brother—and this is where Sasuke gets very huffy with Itachi. He starts snarking about getting his own friends instead of trying to get with his, insisting Sakura’s not the type of girl who’s interested in older guys anyway……… but still does nothing about his feelings for her.
At this point Sakura catches on that Itachi is actually flirting and politely turns him down when Itachi literally asks her out the next time they see each other. Itachi explains that he knows she’s been in love with Sasuke, and he’s not trying to get with her for real. That confuses Sakura. He tells her she’ll understand soon.
He steps up his game again and gives her a kiss on the hand once when Sasuke is in the vicinity and in clear view of them. He’s never seen his brother glare at him so violently.
It literally doesn’t take more than a day after that until he sees them holding hands while they’re sitting in their family’s backyard.
“You’re welcome,” he tells his little brother that night. Sasuke doesn’t get it.
Sakura does, though. That’s made clear in the moment she whispers, “Thank you,” to him at the next family dinner she attends—the first as Sasuke’s girlfriend.
‘I’d love to be in a period drama – that’s my obsession. But being a mixed-race actress, there aren’t so many roles you’re right for. There are lots of period stories to be told with ethnic people in them, but the stories that are being told are not those ones. And that’s frustrating. No, it’s not an easy industry, but so far I have been lucky, so I will keep going.’ - Antonia Thomas
Marvel Shuffle | “I’m not even surprised that you didn’t deny contemplating adoption. Actually, I wouldn’t be surprised if we have officially adopted Kate and you just haven’t told me yet. Oh, and I knew about her date.” (inspired by a tag about clint being a mama bird to kate for this post)
happened?” Hyuk Woo asked staring at your wrapped ankle.
down at your ankle as well biting your lower lips scared to tell him the story
behind it. You just looked up sending your boyfriend a sheepish smile. He let
out a sigh and sat down kneeling down in front of you touching your leg careful
not to touch the bandages.
hurt?” he asked again looking up at you. You knew he was mad or at the very
least still worried even if you were sat there safe in front of him. Hyuk Woo
was usually very calm and loving and wouldn’t blame you for anything that you
did. He would usually just laugh as you apologize to him, but if there was one
thing he didn’t like. It was you not putting him at the top list of person to
call when something happened but he was trying hard not to show you that he was
mad. You however knew him better than you knew the back of your hand.
You shrugged and
playfully bopped his nose. “Stop worrying, nothing I can’t handle.”
