Soulmate AUs

Send in a soulmate AU for a starter, or send in a 💖 for a random one

1. Red String of Fate: The ring finger of soulmates are connected by a red string. Some people can see them and some can’t. The strings gain more threads once the soulmates find each other, but if one soulmate starts to die, the threads will slowly turn black and fade away.

2. Light Up My Heart: Soulmates find each other by affectionate touches causing their chests to glow. It’s impossible for either soulmate to light up if one or both is constantly hurting the other. The touches must be gentle.

3. First Words: The first words your soulmate will say to you are on your wrist in their handwriting. Good luck finding them when it’s something generic.

4. First and Last Words: You have your soulmates first words to you on one wrist and the last words they’ll ever say to you on the other. You have no idea which is which, but they are quite ominous.

5. Tally Marks: (Not exactly a soulmate au, but close enough). When person A falls in love, a red tally shows up on their arm. If the person loves them back, it turns black, and if the person dies, it turns into a scar.

6. Timer: A timer on each person’s wrist counts down to the moment they will meet. Either this is with them from the moment they were born or they can choose to get one around the age of 13, it’s up to the writers.

7. Colours: The world is in black and  white until you meet your soulmate. Afterwards, the world is in colour until your soulmate dies.

8. Colours (Alternate): You can only see colour when your soulmate is with you and you’re touching. This gives a whole new meaning to them bringing colour to your world.

9. Writing: Everything you write on your skin shows up on your soulmates skin in the same spot. You can communicate that way if you wish, but it fades from their skin long before it fades from yours.

10. Can’t We Be… Eighteen?: People age until they turn 18, then they stop aging until they meet their soulmate. As long as their soulmate is alive, they continue to age, even if they aren’t around each other, so was it the pizza guy? That random customer? Killing your soulmate will make you freeze in your aging again. Polyamorous soulmates will age at half the rate they should until all the members of their relationship have been met. (OT3+ Safe)

11. Soul Crushing: You can feel an intense pain in your soul when your soulmate is in danger, enough danger to get them killed. This has saved many lives, but how can you save someone you’ve never met before?

12. My Inner Voice, That’s Me, Right?: The voice in your head, always giving you advice and expressing problems, that’s your soulmates voice. Does it sound familiar, or is it a voice you have never heard before?

13. Through My Eyes: When you were a child, you briefly saw the world through someone else’s eyes. This was confusing and frightening, especially to such young children, especially since the other person got into an awful accident. Now as an adult, you can talk to each other, see through each other’s eyes, and feel what the other person is touching.

14. Guardian Angel: If someone’s soulmate dies before they’re able to meet, the dead soulmate can choose to become a spirit to protect their soulmate. They do whatever they can so their soulmate can live a full life.

15. Real Life Disney Singing: Every time your soulmate starts singing, you have an odd urge to burst out in the same song (and you can’t fight this)

16. The Name of the Game: You have two names on your arms, one is the person you’re destined to fight, and the other is your soulmate. You don’t know which is which.

17. The Name of the Game (Alternate): You have one name on your wrist and it’s your soulmate. Isn’t that name pretty common? Why aren’t last named included?

I’m pretty sure I’m a 7.

Remember the colours, styles, names, adjectives, hair, etc is JUST to help introduce people to the idea of a gender spectrum instead of a two-gender binary system! :) You could be a 1 with super short hair and feel very very female, or an 8 with long hair whose favourite colour is pink but still feels very “male”. :)

NOTE-TAKING TIPS!

heyyy!! heres a quick post explaining some of my fav note-taking methods and some tips that i find useful. these are for taking notes from a textbook :^ ). lets get started!!

where to start -

  • my textbook chapters are subdivided into three or four parts so i mark in the margin which subchapter i’m at. this helps alot when i look back on my notes and want to find a specific subchapter/topic. i usually write it in highlighter so its even more noticeable. plus idk it looks kind of cute hehe.
  • then i use the subchapter title provided by my textbook and write that usually in big blue ink. i always just use the textbook titles when making my notes.

advice -

  • draw diagrams, draw diagrams, draw diagrams!!! i know sometimes i feel super lazy when i make my notes and don’t want to draw some diagrams but i force myself to!! its so worth it omg. idk i can really remember the material better once its visualized. with my teachers i get bonus marks for including diagrams so thats a plus!
  • write important notes in the margin! if i really want to remember a certain point i note it down in the margin so it really stands out. i can remember these points much much better and when looking at my notes my eyes go straight to the points.
  • use a different colour for vocabulary. idk if this is obvious this is just what i do. i pick a different colour for vocabulary and this helps me remember the definitions a lot better. 
  • don’t use too many supplies. i’ve tried to colour code my notes with 6 or 7 different colours and omg it takes way way too long. i usually use one black pen, one blue pen, a highlighter, and a coloured fineliner. this way i don’t have to cap and uncap pens over and over again which actually wastes a lot of time hehe.
  • spice your notes up! sometimes to motivate myself to start making notes i search tumblr for some of those cute banner idea posts. i use these in my notes because i find them kinda fun to draw?? im lame sry.

other posts i find helpful -

thx!! -

ok i hope this quick post helps you out at least a little!! make your notes the way it works for you obvi.  also tag your posts with #studywright and i’ll reblog all your posts : ^) have a good day!! xx

So, with Pride Month over, I wanted to talk for just a moment about my favourite version of the Pride flag I’ve seen plastered all over.

Hot Pink, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Turquoise, Indigo, Violet, Black.

Barring black, these 8 colours formed the original LGBT Pride Flag created by Gilbert Baker, an LGBT activist who passed away this year. Hot Pink was removed due to the costs of obtaining fabric in that particular colour, reducing the flag to 7 colours. This was done within the first year, 1978. In 1979, the colours were changed again. Due to San Fransisco’s Market Street hanging its flags vertically, the middle stripe (Green) was obscured - in response, Turquoise and Indigo were fused into Royal Blue.

During the AIDS epidemic, a black bar was often added, and Leonard Matlovich, a man dying of illnesses due to AIDS, proposed that when a cure was found (and made commonly available), the black bars along the bottom be removed, and burned - a celebration of victory, given the bar’s meaning as a symbol of remembrance.

The original 8 bands had meanings too. In descending order, they are Sex, Life, Healing, Sunlight, Nature, Magic/Art, Serenity, and Spirit.

This is why I’m an advocate of this particular 9-colour flag. In conjunction with the later, black, band, I believe these provide a key insight into our community as a whole. Our sex is alternately demonized or fetishized to varying degrees. Our lives are fraught with difficulty because of the world we live in, but we can bring one another healing and serenity, through presence, and through community. We’re just as much a part of nature as anyone else, our art is emblematic of our struggles, our spirits have endured, and through this community, we can bring to light our hardships, and make the future better for people like us. 

It’s important that we remember our shared pasts, and use them to move forward. Even if we end up as fully-integrated into a better society, we still have to look back and remember everything that’s been done to us, to keep it, or anything like it, from happening again.
