A Very XF Valentine

I had a fun little idea for us to celebrate Galentines day and Valentines day in txf fandom! I wrote up a little start to a story and I’m going to tag @alittlemissfit who will then add to it and tag someone else and on it will go. By the end of Valentines day hopefully we will have a full story! 

Things to know: 
1. It’s incredibly fluffy.
2. It’s AU. 
3. When it’s getting toward the end I’ll PM the last person tagged and ask them to end it. 
4. After I’ll post the whole thing on AO3 and tag everyone involved! 
5. If you don’t get tagged/you aren’t into my story start your own story train and we can get a bunch going around! 

Happy Galentines/Valentines day to the best fandom ever! 


“You mean Valentine’s day?” Dana asked her sister with a raised eyebrow.
“No, GALentine’s day. Come on Dana please tell me you’ve seen Parks and Recreation!” Melissa said from the other end of the phone.
“I that the one with Tina Fey?”
“GAH! No Dana! That’s 30 Rock. Amy Poehler is the one from Parks and Rec.”
Dana studied her finger nails, “I’m sorry I don’t have unending amount of time to sit and watch TV.”
“You’re forgiven. Now can you come?”
“You still haven’t explained what this actually is.”
“Well on the show they celebrate Galentine’s day on the 13th of February. It’s like all the women get together and eat and it’s about friendship instead of romance. It’s just for fun!”
Dana let out a puff of air and leaned on her counter top, “Who will be there?”
“Me, you, mom, Monica, Terri and Jenna, Crystal, and I figured you could bring Emily.”
“There are two couples in that group, I thought it wasn’t about romance?” Dana said with a wicked smile.
“God, Dana! It’s just a fun day to go and hang out!”
“If you can bring Monica why can’t I bring Mulder?” She said enjoying the irritation on the other end of the phone.
“Because he’s a man.”
“That’s a little sexist.”
“Fine! You are uninvited! But I’m still getting Emily!”  Melissa huffed.
“I’m kidding Missy, that sounds fun. Do I have to bring something?”
“Well since Mon and I are hosting we will have little treats for everyone but you can bring everyone a little something if you want. Or you could make a dessert. Just let me know if you’re bringing food.”
Someone’s muffled voice started talking in the background and Missy told her to hold on.
“Sorry. Actually scratch the dessert, if you could bring some champagne that would be great.”
“Yeah I can do that. Anything else? I have to leave to get the kids.” Dana said as she began to walk toward the door.
“Nope that’s it.”
“Alright tell Mon and the boys I said hi I’ll see you on Monday.”
“See you then.”

I ended up having a snow day today, so I worked ahead on homework in the morning and drank hot chocolate, updated my bullet journal, and watched Parks and Rec in the afternoon!! It’s been a super relaxing day :1
Only one more day until the weekend!!

Happy Galentine’s Day! Have a fluffy college!au with fem!destiel

“Pssst. Cas. Caaaaaaaas. CAS!”

Cas pries one eye open and glares at her roommate. Deanna’s hair is a tangled mess and there are pillow lines indented in her cheeks but she’s got a smile that threatens to split her face and Cas knows she’s in for some trouble.

“What?” she growls. 

“It’s brunch time! Come on, get up!”

The one eye falls closed and Cas turns her face back into her pillow. “Fuck off.”

“But Cas! It’s Galentine’s Day!” The bed shifts as Deanna invites herself in and burrows into Cas’s side. “It’s the best day of the year and I have everything ready.”

“Wanna sleep,” Cas groans.

“I made you coffee,” Deanna tries to tempt.

“Sleep.”

“And we have mimosas.”

“Go away.”

The cheeriness cuts like a switch. “And chocolate chip waffles.”

Cas lurches. “I’m up.”

Deanna springs from the bed with a fist in the air. “Knew that would get you. Hurry up before everything goes cold.”

Cas struggles to separate herself from her sheets but the scent of Columbian roast catches her nose and she follows it into the living room. Deanna is parked in her spot on the couch and smiles smugly before gesturing to the coffee table that is now operating as an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet. 

There are waffles, bacon, sausage, some kind of egg casserole dish, and-

“Did you make crepes?” Cas asks mostly in awe as she takes her seat.

“I had some extra time,” Deanna shrugs.

“How long have you been awake?”

“Four hours.”

Cas stares at her and Deanna quirks a shameless smile. “Wow.”

“Shut up and drink your coffee,” Deanna says and passes Cas her bee mug. “Now, it’s time for the best part.” She finds the remote and pulls up Netflix, scrolling to their recently watched queue where “Parks and Recreation” is always waiting for them. 

“It’s seasons two, ep-” Cas starts.

“Episode sixteen,” Deanna finishes and she finds the episode and clicks. She looks at Cas smugly. “You think I could forget this shit?”

Cas raises a hand in surrender and sips her coffee.

The series finale of Parks & Rec airs tonight at 10 pm on NBC.

I will keep this relatively short, as I have not been able to begin to process many of the emotions I am feeling right now. Parks & Rec writer and all-around comedy powerhouse Harris Wittels passed away last week at the age of 30. It is indescribably horrible. Being on a writing staff is not like a normal job. You spend countless hours every day with these people, laughing with them and laughing at them and fighting with them and crying with them and loving them. It was a family that also paid me. When Harris died we lost a relative.

It’s hard to find the joy in the shadow of his death, but I can safely say that writing for Parks is the most momentous thing I’ve done with my life so far. If anything, this tragedy has made me realize how insanely special my job is and how wonderful my friends and coworkers are. I fucking love Parks & Rec.

I am so grateful to have written for a show like this. It’s inconceivably difficult to make any public piece of art or entertainment, let alone one that you deeply, deeply believe in, let alone one that has truly made people’s lives better. I have been given the singular honor of working on such a show with a group of the kindest, funniest, smartest, sharpest, physically prettiest people I’ve ever met. This sort of team is one in a million (or, One in 8,000).

I hope that you have the chance to be a member of such a team someday.

When the American colonists said to King George III:

And they dumped the tea in the harbor and were like:
