I've just spend the last three days reading your Widow's Tale series! I've also been stalking your blog and I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who has sacrificed sleep and work to get through it.

heya, thanks for reading Natasha’s story in the Widow’s Tale series

I… I went to get the link and saw the date stamp on that series and I somehow can’t believe it’s been five years since I started that series. Wow. I remember spending my summer vacation in 2013 in the library, writing the first several chapters out by hand. That feels like a really ling time ago, now.

This Sunday got suddenly retrospective.

How does one find internships? Unfortunately, many of my peers are having trouble finding science-related internships, mainly ones relating to lab work, and I myself don't know where to start.

Google is your friend. Get intimate with it. There are a lot of databases/lists of internships floating around, but you usually have to dig a bit to find them.

Here’s an incomplete list of ones I’ve personally taken note of. Most are in the US or the UK, and they’re mostly available to international students. There are MANY more programs open to US and EU citizens; you guys have a lot more options.

LISTS of STEM internships/programs in all fields:

Specific STEM fields:

Astronomy and Physics

Environmental Science

Australian Programs

LISTS of Science Writing Internships:

Specific Science Writing Internships

Basically, do your research, because this is a hugely incomplete list, but hopefully this gets you started.

Spread this around! My extensive Googling skills have to be good for something.

Secrets - Part One

Genre: Fluff, Angst

Pairing: Ravi x You

Warning: None

AN: I have slayed the dragon called procrastination and conquered the mountain called writer’s block. This was actually one of my half-written stuff from my last bout of writer’s block, and I rewrote chunks of it. I originally wanted to post the whole thing as one part, but then it reached 3,500 words with only ¼ of the plot finished. Plus, what better way to celebrate Chained Up’s 1st Win? In good news, I just finished what will be Part Two. I just need to edit that and decide if I’ll continue to a part three. IDK, I think I just love this scenario for giving me some fluffy angst to write. Before any of you ask: I needed a break from Leo. I’m working on it.

Half of this was a request from an anon a looong time ago, and the other half was just my imagination doing things. 

[Part Two ; Part Three]

first of all ur blog give me life. second of all, can u sort out the haylor timeline for me? very confused at their relationship. i believe it started in april when they met at the kcas and then i remember justin said that thing about how he knows that one of the biggest pop stars in the world thinks harry is so hot but that he had been sworn to secrecy around the same time.. but the songs on 1989 are confusing timeline wise.. like style/all you had to do was stay

hmk. Story time, sit down, grab a drink and listen up.

They first meet at the KCAs in March 2012.

Then refer to my old ass post in April 2012 about Bieber spilling the beans and them staying at hotel together: http://dirtytaylorswift.tumblr.com/post/20751169328/pretty-sure-harry-and-taylor-are-hooking-up . They talked and swam together at Bieber’s listening party.

Then this video MTV put out in April in which the boys constantly tease him about Taylor: http://www.mtv.com/videos/news/757135/is-one-directions-harry-styles-into-taylor-swift.jhtml

Then Harry was all giggly and shit about her again in more April interviews: http://someonemakeonedirectiongoaway.tumblr.com/post/21216575782http://dirtytaylorswift.tumblr.com/post/21275748548/we-met-in-america-shes-very-nice-yes-a (bonus: MTV made a timeline to haylor with some more interview footage)

So yeah they be bangin up in NYC and all is fun but 1D has to leave for Australia then Taylor see’s some paparazzi pics of Harry kissing some girl in australia and is all like WTF you unfaithful fuck. 

Time passes, she dates Conor Kennedy for the summer.

Bring in September 2012, VMAs. After the VMAs, Harry and Taylor eat together with some others like Ed Sheeran. They weren’t all up on each other like a couple. Harry likely is still trying to charm her and win her heart back.

Then in October, we hear stories about Conor and Taylor breaking up. What people seem to neglect here is that the source in the story says they have been broken up for a while and the distance didn’t work out. 

Taylor cancels a dinner date with a mystery 1D member.

Later in October, Harry and Taylor are seen backstage together at the BBC Radio 1 Awards. Secretly back together?

November - Taylor wears paper airplane necklace. Harry’s symbolic gesture of committing to her, which he wasn’t able to do before. I think this is where you can say they went public with their relationship.

X-Factor: Backstage twitter as well as Mario Lopez confirm Harry was at Taylor’s rehearsals. They had lunch, Harry told Mario he was there for Taylor. After her performance he picked her up and through her over his shoulder and carried her out to her trailer. random pic http://i.imgur.com/sDYL3czl.jpg

December - Here we go. Full on, no shame in their game.  Walking in Central Park, going in and out of each others hotel rooms late at night, after parties, just haylor madness all month long. Everyone is hounding them, this is where the whole I Know Places emotions originates I’d imagine. They vacation together for a week in Cheshire, all is good. They go on vacation in Utah and go skiing, and get in that snowmobile accident. Harold gets stitches, pics and pics. End of the month: New Years eve they kiss, directioners cry “he lied to us”, hilarity ensues.

January 2013 - They go on vacation to the British Virgin Islands, they purportedly get in a fight, she leaves the island on a boat alone and Harry is seen partying with some peeps. Taylor tweets “Uh oh.. back in the studio” — later admits that tweet was when she started making “All you had to do was Stay”

Then a Vanity Fair article comes out in April 2013. The interviewer is over at Taylor’s house while she’s with friends. Taylor allows one of her friends to speak to the interviewer and she basically confirms that their relationship in spring 2012 was true and all that and he chased her the rest of the year. 

At the 2013 VMAs they are seen huggging and talking for several minutes, 1D fan @janoharrystyles reports. Ed Sheeran brings them together later on at his after-party.

They are apparently friends and here we are with an album. 

The songs aren’t in order but the secret messages in 1989 also spell out this story from that first meetup in New York to current. 


We begin our story in New York 

There once was a girl known by every one and no one 

Her heart belonged to someone who couldn’t stay 

They loved each other recklessly 

They paid the price 

She danced to forget him 

He drove past her street each night 

She made friends and enemies 

He only saw her in his dreams 

Then one day he came back 

Timing is a funny thing 

And everyone was watching 

She lost him but she found herself and somehow that was everything


She’s found happiness in herself, no longer yearning for that toxic relationship.
