I’m all for fantasy stories where supernatural characters protect their human friends, but does anyone else want some stories where the humans are the ones who are looking after their supernatural friends?

  • A human girl exchanging her silver engagement ring for a cheaper one after she realises why her werewolf friend has been refusing to high five her.
  • A group of humans throwing coats over their vampire friend because he forgot it was the Summer solstice and was caught out by the sunrise. Those same friends coming to visit him when he wakes up in the late afternoon, bringing him blood from the butcher’s and putting up with his whining about the nights being shorter.
  • A human hearing that someone stole their selkie friends pelt and coming over to her new “husband"s house immediately and threatening to punch his lights out unless he tells them where it is.
  • Humans petitioning the counsel to build a wooden climbing frame in the local playground because the old one has iron parts and their fairy friend’s kids can’t use it without burning themselves.

I’ll post more if I can come up with any.


Meet Pratima Devi, The dog lady of New Delhi who is a rag picker and has chosen to dedicate her life to stray dogs. Pratima lives in a tarp-covered shed with her 120 dogs and  more than 280 others around her shed and sells scraps to feed them, despite barely being able to feed herself. However, the 65-year-old claims to be happier with her beloved hounds than with humans, after she left her husband after they had a troubled marriage.  "I was married at the age of 7 to a man who was more than 10 years older than me. My husband often came home drunk and used to beat me". She said: “I feel happy to live with them. When I was with my husband, I wasn’t happy. I used to work all day and run the house. My husband didn’t work.” (Source)

How to be an Awesome Wife: Millennial Edition

Take care of the children. Staying home to raise your children is not for the faint of heart. It is a daily challenge, but very rewarding in the end. Your Husband is probably an amazing Father, but he will never have the same emotional connection that you do with your children. Mothers have a maternal instinct and a bond with their babies cannot be broken. Utilize parenting techniques that work for both of you. Your Husband should act as lead disciplinarian, with you acting at the lead nurturer. This instills structure and a hierarchy in your home; teaching your children to respect authority. This starts by submitting to your husband, in turn your children will have a model to emulate.

Cook and bake well. Being in charge of your family’s nutrition is of the upmost importance. Making mac and cheese from a box every night dosent count. Cooking shows, online tutorials/ courses and cookbooks are all great references. Prepping meals earlier in the day or the night before is also a big help when it comes to managing family time in the evenings.

Keep your home clean. The home should be a relaxing environment. A disorderly home causes stress and anxiety. Your Husband wants to come home to an orderly home. If you have very small children, your Husband should allow you some leeway here, as young children are professional lil’ mess-makers.

Put effort into your appearance. Look attractive for him, never “let yourself go.” Take time to do your hair and make-up. Online make-up tutorials are helpful. Wear tight fitting clothes; low cut shirts and yoga pants when in the house. If your Husband prefers that you dress more modestly while outside, then do so accordingly.

Never deny any type of sexual advances from your Husband. Additionally, your acceptance should be paired with enthusiasm. Your Husband should feel comfortable to act out any sexual ideas/fantasies that he may have. Once married, ANY kind of sexual act between a Husband and wife is deemed as an “act of love.” Dick sucking/oral sex should be offered daily and is also an act of submission in and of itself.

When you are out alone, never partake in anything that your Husband wouldn’t approve of. If you have to hide something, then you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place.

Dont spend too much time on your phone or tablet when your Husband is home. Additionally, when your Husband speaks to you, look up at him and not down at your phone when replying.

Do not argue aggressively with him. Communicate openly and calmly about any issues that arise. Both partners deserve to be heard respectfully. Your opinion is important to your Husband as he doesn’t want a doormat. But as Man of the house, he should make the final decision.

Save money. Housewives are often seen as “kept women” who shop and spend frivolously. Alternatively, many housewives will tell you what a complete fallacy that is. Learning how to budget money properly, couponing and keeping a stockpile are all important aspects of running your home efficiently.

prompt: alec admiring magnus' back (you can interpret this how ever you'd like)

read this fic on ao3

that night it was one of those cool summer nights, feeling like august had given up under the press of autumn’s chilly fingers. it had been cool all day but as twilight lay like a grey blanket over new york, the skyline all yellow orange lights, alec felt cold all the way through. they’d spent the evening on the roof, eating a beautiful dinner magnus had conjured up pressed together on one of the couches, their fingers tangled as they talked about their busy days. but as twilight rolled in, the chill had gotten so bad that alec’s fingers were shaking as he raised his beer to his lips, even with magnus’s warm body pressed close to him. so at that, magnus had ushered them both inside, his hand hot and soothing on alec’s shoulder as they started down the spiral staircase.

everything felt a little fuzzy, the hazy lights pressing against alec’s mind as they walked towards the bedroom. magnus murmured something about grabbing a book from the study, pressing a few kisses into his jaw. alec had nodded, letting him go and glancing after him as sleep tugged at his eyelids. as magnus walked away the light brushed over his broad back, his big shoulders and the way his waistcoat was pressed against them, the subtle pattern that spilled down it just vaguely catching the light. alec paused there, his fingers pressed to their bedroom door and he breathed in slow, warmth rolling through him and his lips tugging up at the edges.

by the time magnus appeared in the doorway, alec felt slightly more awake, undressed and settled under the duvet, his thumb rubbing over the edge of the deep warm purple that was gracing their bed that night. magnus was already undoing the buttons to his waistcoat, grinning as he walked through the door and holding a book in his free hand.

You know what I love? The show lowekey show us Hyde is more domestic than Jackie. Where she doesn’t have a clue on chores and cooking, he knows better and he seems to not mind it. Hell, he may actually kind of enjoy it. 

So. Hear me out: stay at home husband Hyde, going from time to time to the store just to make sure it’s fine, always in time for parent-teacher meetings, jokingly bothering Jackie about how she needs to stop working so much and put mORE ATTENTION TO HIM.

The year is 2070. The 9785th person has just given another interview about Harry Styles’ solo album. It is, as they put it, a “gamechanger.” Meanwhile, Styles can be found chilling in his quiet house with his husband and twelve children. When finally tracked down and asked about his album, Styles smiles and says, “what album?” He pauses. Feels a shift in the air. Ah. The 9786th person has just given another interview.

I couldn’t resist drawing @professor-cinnamon-roll‘s Good Omens AU, because I have an ineffable love for this trash double crossover.
