“You can feel in the streets that everyone is worried. We come from a very small town. The engine of our entire economy is a candy factory, and people are getting laid off. I don’t like my job. I package the candies and I have to stay indoors all day. When I was younger, I would think about quitting. My bags were always packed. But everything changes when you feel a small hand gripping your finger. Now I’m terrified of losing my job. Every morning we have a routine. Whenever I don’t feel like going to work, he says ‘come here,’ and he gives me a hug, and that changes me. He’s my battery charger.”

(Cordoba, Argentina)


Mortal AU. Will Solace is a kindergarten teacher currently on a school trip with his students inside a candy factory and Nico di Angelo, with what seems to be a betrayed face, is their assigned tour guide. Will would be lying if he says he wasn’t wary of the other at first, what with his unapproachable get-up and the scowl on his face.

That is until Nico shows him how good he is with handling kids and that’s it, that’s the first step for him to be completely smitten.


Some brief but interesting background info about the cites where the following English models come from, as knowledge is also beautiful…

Doncaster is in Yorkshire, an was founded about 1,900 years ago, beside a Roman fort. Candy factories opened in the 1800s, an a castle is nearby. In fact the famous chocolate biscuit-bar Kit-Kat was invented locally.

London is the capital of the United Kingdom, as was founded in 43 A.D as an international trading city - which it still is today, 2000 years later. It became the capital of England after the anglo-saxons reclaimed it in 927.

Kent is a county founded by the Jute anglo-saxon tribe and the Cantuci - a Celtic tribe from over 3000 years ago. Queen Anne Boleyn was born here. Kent is known as the garden county an has castle an a major seaport. Link

Liverpool was the worlds first truly international city, as its docks catered for global shipping on a grand scale. The Beatles pop-band originated here as did other bands. Two premiership football clubs are based here.

Sheffield is where modern steel production was founded in the 1800s, with stainless steel being invented here in 1771. Silverware is still made here. In this city originated famous bands like the Human League an Def Leppard.

Bath is a quaint city, which was named after a volcanic spring that was harnessed into a giant public bath house in 60 AD by the Roman empire. This city is considered very picturesque with quaint buildings an streets.

Essex was founded by the eastern Saxons over 1600 years ago. It is the home of Fords European research center, an the band Depeche Mode. The county has a modern city feel to it in the west an countryside to the east.

The “Newcastle” part of the hometown derives from it being the location of a ‘new castle’ in the 12th century. The “Lyme” section refers to the Forest of Lyme that covered the area with lime trees in the medieval period.

And don’t ever forget, “it’s stupid to believe in things…” <3


September 21st is little Ruby’s birthday !

She heard of the legendary candy shop next to Otonoki. Nico might have told her about it… a little too often, and it became Ruby’s obsession since then.

So today, she goes in ! Not only the kids can have as much free candy as they want, BUT they can also make their own behind the scenes : that’s right, Ruby and her friends will have access to the factory !

They’re divided in groups of six. Smile attributes, Pure, and Cool. They’ll try to make the treat that represents them the best.

Let’s make it a big one ! Happy birthday, little Ruby !

When the Teleport Fails - Nightwing x Reader

Requested by jet-the-glaceon92 -  an angst Young Justice Nightwing x Injured! Reader request

Requested by Anon - a Nightwing x Reader one where the reader has teleporting powers and is on the team  

“No fair using your teleport,” Dick whined as you teleported away from him to escape his punch. You grinned before teleporting behind him. Knocking him down from behind, you flipped in front of him with another grin.

“All is fair in love and war,” you replied smugly. Dick snorted, getting onto his knees. He held out a hand to you.

“Help a guy up, huh?” You narrowed your eyes before taking his hand only to find yourself being yanked down on top of him. Dick and you crashed against the training mat that softened your landing. Before you could reaction, Dick’s lips were against yours. 

You pulled away from him a moment later. “What kind of example are you setting, Wing-A-Ding, by kissing one of your teammates when you’re supposed to be sparring?” 

Dick snorted, capturing your lips again. “The best one, obviously.” You buried your fingers into his hair, losing yourself in his lips. However, you teleported away from him when a cry of disgust interrupted you. 

“Do you have to do that in here?” Beast Boy snapped, putting a hand over his eyes. You teleported next to him.

“You’ll understand when you’re older,” you remarked, flicking Beast Boy on the side of his head before heading towards the door. “I’m going to shower.” You winked at Dick, causing him to jump to his feet to follow you. 

“Nightwing, you’re wanted on the watchtower,” Beast Boy said, stepping in front of Dick to stop him. “Batman just called.” 

Dick sighed in disappointment. You, having heard Beast Boy’s words, turned to give him a pout before blowing him a kiss with a smile of understanding. Dick ran a hand through his hair, smiling back at you gratefully. “Okay, tell them I’m on my way.” Beast Boy ran off. 

“Later?” you asked hopefully, leaning against the door frame. Dick approached you, kissing you softly on the lips.

“Later,” Dick promised before the two of you headed in opposite directions.
