people in my life are like cigarettes
they go away faster than flames
you still remember your father’s smile/ wasn’t it yesterday              when he made up the first lie?
after letting them burn me. ignite all i have/ i’m left with nothing
“i forgot, i didn’t mean to leave you behind”
but when you got used to the warmth/ it’s hard to come back
even when you know no one will ever stay
“are you okay?” let me take another cigarette
—  it’s been five years/ and all i am is a ghost

only recently, i reached my very first thousand and i wanna thank all of you! i love yall so much and every single one of you means the world to me whether we talk or not. so in honor of hitting this huuuge milestone, i decided to make another follow forever! <333

Originally posted by team-spidey


You were one of the newest members of the Avengers, you were “discovered” by Tony along with your boyfriend, Peter. You were incredibly powerful, and you felt it running through your body, it made you feel invincible. You had the power of mental manipulation. You could control the thoughts, mindsets, and mental functions of other people. It seemed like there was no weakness for you, no disease, wood or worldly elements were your Achilles heel. The only thing that could render you helpless was copper. Yep, copper. You discovered this in chemistry sophomore year. You didn’t tell anyone, no one could know that a stupid metal could deprive you of use of your powers.

You were recruited because of what you were known for- you could project images into other people’s minds. If you did this, they would see your projection as if it were actually happening to them, completely distorting their reality and incapacitating them. You also had more… let’s call them “immoral” powers. You could knock people unconscious, and cause them to feel severe pain. You didn’t use these more harmful powers, of course, because you were in the Avengers. You fought for the good guys.

Since you joined the team, you’d been forced into the spotlight. Basically everything about you and your personal life was known to the public. Your powers, your backstory and real name; everything. You didn’t like this at all, not only was it very invasive, but dangerous as well. Your face was also very well known, and there were fan blogs on some website called Tumblr dedicated to you. Most blogs wrote these things called imagines? You looked these up and saw a whole array of imagines about everyone on the team. It was strange, to say the least. One thing that wasn’t public, thank god, was your home. You lived in a small apartment in Queens with your dog, Bean. You lived alone, your parents died long ago, so long ago that you didn’t remember them. It wasn’t sad for you, just a fact.

You were back in Queens packing boxes, and blasting music. You were asked to move to the Avengers tower for your safety, and you said yes. In the midst of packing you got a text from Peter, it read,

HEY Y/N, I’M ON MY WAY TO HELP YOU PACK, SEE YOU SOON :-)

You replied,

OK P, SEE U SOON -Y/I

You smiled as you put your phone down and continued packing, quietly singing along to the song playing. The music was so loud that you didn’t hear someone enter your apartment. Between songs, however, you heard footsteps walking towards your room. You knew it wasn’t Peter, because he would’ve announced that he was there. You were immediately on guard, standing up and facing the door. Within seconds it was kicked down and you were on the attack, knocking out the soldiers entering your small room. You heard the window break behind you. You knew you couldn’t fight anymore, there were too many. You stopped, and as you did, you heard applause behind you. You turned around to face the clapping, it was Zemo. Behind him on the fire escape was about 15 more soldiers. That makes 20 enemies, the ones at your bedroom door and the ones at your window, plus Zemo. You gave him a withering glare.

“What that fuck do you want, you dick?” You asked him, hate clear in your voice.

“Oh, Y/N, you really don’t know?” He gives you a disgusting smile. “We need something from you, and you’re going to give it to us, whether you like it or not.”

“In your dreams, Zemo.”

“Tsk tsk, Y/N, it’s easier if you cooperate.”

He nods his head almost imperceptibly, and you feel someone grab your arms. Something is wrapped around your neck and you all of a sudden feel so weak, the only other time you’d felt this weak was… shit… copper. They’d put a collar, for lack of a better word, around your neck with 2 copper nodes pressing right into your throat. Zemo looks pleased at this, you feel like passing out. He walks up to you and grabs your chin so you have to look at him.

“Listen, Zemo, I’m not one to kinkshame, but I’m not into the whole BDSM thing. You really should’ve asked before you bought me a collar.” The smug look on his face dropped, now he just looked pissed. He just stares at you, before he punches you in the face, and you swear you hear something crunch. With blood streaming down your face you turn your face back to him. He’s pleased with himself, he thinks he shut you up. Well, it takes a lot more than one shitty punch to shut you up. You spit a wad of saliva mixed with blood in his face, aiming for his eyes. You smile.

Now he looks really mad, but he just pulls out a handkerchief and wipes your bloody saliva off his face. He waves his hand dismissively at the guy still holding your arms, and suddenly you’re slammed face first into the desk in your room. Yeah, something definitely crunched that time.

“Listen, and listen well, Y/N. You’re going to write something. Just a small note telling your little boyfriend you’re alright, and that you’ll be back soon.” Zemo requests.

“And why would I do that for you? What possible reason would I have for listening to you?” You spit out the last word with as much hate as you possibly could.

“You should be thanking me, really, I know he’s coming here. I could kill him, right in front of you, then kill you. But you see, that’s not a long term plan. That’s what someone very rash would do. But I have patience. So I am settling on one teensy, tiny note.”

You’re not feeling as brave anymore, you swallow thickly.

“Fine. I’ll do it.” You feel nauseous as you agree to his terms.

You write,

Hey babe,

I’m going down to my parent’s beach house. I will be back soon, Peter.

                                                                              -Y/N

Zemo reads this and seems to find it adequate. He tells one of the soldiers to “take care of you”, but before he can knock you out you focus all of your energy into one thing. You send out what you see; Zemo, the guy stalking towards you with the butt of his gun aimed at your head, all of it, to Peter. Everything goes black.


a/n: that’s it for this imagine, at least for now ;-)

The holiday of my dreams on Corfu Island started off at the beautiful villa Achillion, named after the Greek hero Achilles. In the villa there are two huge statues of him, one of which you can see on the photo we’ve taken there. Achillion was once the hide-away villa of Princess Sisi, Empress Elisabeth of Austria. She didn’t like the artificial and pompous life at the Austrian court, so she was frequently travelling and leading a secluded life far away from the noise and constant reproach of her husband’s family. She was fond of poetry, healthy and modern lifestyle and thus disapproved of her husband’s very traditional and backward family and surroundings. In return, they also didn’t like her much and it was for the best for both sides that they didn’t spend much time together. While I was walking around the lavish gardens I was trying to imagine what her life might have been like, I saw her writing poetry in the courtyard, watching the sunset over the horizon from the huge terrace, grooming her hair in front of one of the many mirrors inside the villa. I was myself a princess for a few hours.

hey i hope this isnt annoying or anything but whenever toe walking is mentioned i feel the need to say something because no one ever really talks about it. toe walking is really bad for your feet. it makes your achilles tendon tight and that causes a whole lot of issues, like it gives me really bad pain in my ankles and ive had doctors say that my severe back pain is also related to how tight my hamstrings are. i currently have to go through physical therapy to lengthen my achilles tendon-

or else ill have to get surgery for it because its overall really bad for me. idk i guess what im saying is like… yeah toe walking is absolutely an autism thing but it upsets me that not many people know how bad for your feet it is. its really, /really/ fucking hard to stop doing it because for most people its subconscious but i urge people to try to walk on their heels as much as possible, or do stretches for their ankle

This is some good information!

And since reading this, I’ve noticed pains in my ankles so please be careful everyone.

Hello! I was wondering if you knew of any (good) mlm fantasy books? And if possible where one of the MCs is non-human (vampire, demon, etc.) thank you :)

Hello! There’s not much that I know of in YA - Seven Tears at High Tide by CB Lee, The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black, The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey - but in Adult, scroll down here and check out the stuff marked G, like Swordspoint by Ellen Kushner and The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller. Stuff with non-human MCs is unfortunately super not my forte, but if you go to the Dreamspinner Press’s Fantasy page is probably a good place to start! https://www.dreamspinnerpress.com/books/fantasy-38-c

anonymous asked:

Hello! Recently (four days ago) I decided to change my lifestyle for the better and start running (and I loved it!)-- and two days ago I think I developed Achilles tendinitis :/ Have you any experience w this/ an injury and bounced back? I really want to keep running but this is really discouraging :(

Hey dear!
I would be surprised if you developed tendonitis this quickly. The runners I know who have it got it after years of running. However, to be on the safe side, go see a doctor.
If it is not anything serious, then here’s some tips for you:
1) never run more than 2 days in a row.
2) always warm up for at least 10 minutes before
3) always stretch after
4) always make sure you are properly hydrated before a run
5) soft eat junk before a run. Worst feeling ever
6) if you are injured, don’t run until your dr gives you the go ahead

Tagged by @sncwbaz, thanks! <3

1. Last book you purchased and on a scale of 1 to 10, how excited are you to read it?
The Song Of Achilles, and 9.5 because I’m VERY excited to read it but I’m probably gonna cry so ;-;

2. What is something that made you happy today?
Well definitely not the freaking big headache I’m having atm… Probably watching Dexter with my brother, that was great.

3. Describe your best friend as an aesthetic (so my friend would be bright green, fresh mowed grass and the ice flavor vanilla, etc.) (make it as long or as short as you want)
Ok so I have a couple of best friends, so I’m gonna try for some of them? (some of them might be obvious but it’s just what i associate them with okay i’m trying)
1) slytherin scarf, knife set, ponytail, bikini
2) soft blanket, neko atsume, birb, stuffed teddy bear
3) flanel, *wink*, eyeliner, basil leafs
4) fluffy wings, pencils, guinea pig, clouds

4. What does your bed spread look like right now?
Just ordinary white bc I’m not at home and staying in a hotel-ish place.

5. A quote for a book or song you really like?
“So here I am, lifting up my heart, to the one who holds the stars.” (from Stars by Skillet)

6. Describe (or show if you want) the last picture you took on your phone.
That selfie I took for the carry on meetup thingy.

7. What is a pet you would really want?
A dragon! Does that count? If not, 2 dogs (a smol and a big one) and a cat.

8. A song you’re currently addicted to?
Stars - Skillet. Listen to it it’s beautiful.

9. How well would you say you know yourself?
Hmm that’s a tough one. I think I know myself pretty well, but still I don’t do something about myself in a certain situation when I KNOW how I’m gonna react, and do the same thing. Did that make sense? It’s hard to explain.

10. Favorite fictional villain/(highly)problematic character?
Currently Hsin from the In The Company Of Shadows, he’s pretty problematic but I love him to death.

11. Artist/band you want to see live most desperately?
Not really desperately, but I would love to go see Troye Sivan someday.

12. Have you complimented someone today? (if no; go compliment someone. if yes; on what did you compliment them?)
Man, I’m really bad with compliments. I always think them but never say them out loud bc I’m scared people will think I’m weird (which is true, but beside the point). So idk actually, I might have, but probably not. And everyone is asleep so I can’t go compliment them, what a shame.

Ok so now I gotta make up 12 questions for you:

1) Favourite song atm and why? (I need more good songs in my life)

2) Do you cry often when reading a book?

3) How many times have you read Carry On?

4) What was your favourite tv show as a kid?

5) What was the last movie you watched? Was it good?

6) Do you play Pokemon Go? If yes, what team are you in?

7) Do you pronounce Baz as Bahz, Boz, Bez, or something else?

8) Would you rather have the power to become invisible or the power to fly? Why?

9) What was your first ship ever?

10) Best book series ever?

11) What would the house of your dreams look like?

12) How are you?
