hi so i saw your post about being shook over the fact that phillions and danosaurs actually happened and i wanted to share with you this time a few years ago when dnp lived in manchester and i got on the tube with my sister who was borrowing my danosaur shirt at the time because hers got soaked in pudding (long story) and dan saw us and actually rawred. like he legit made a claw and rawred at us before disappearing into a crowd of people. i will never forget that moment. i still cant believe it.
i knew that Dan in 2011-13 was cringey as hell but this, this is beyond my expectations and i am so sorry for you and your sister to have experienced that scarring moment in your lives
honestly fuck kylo ren, if hayden christensen really does return in ep 8, presumably as anakin’s force ghost, i want him to be floating around with luke. i want him to be hovering over luke like ‘look at my son. look at MY SON i love him. luke, padme would love you so much. here are one hundred stories about how awesome your mother was. tell me more about your sister. i am a fucking fool’
“In the light of what Black women often willingly sacrifice for our children and our men, this is a much-needed exhortation, no matter what illegitimate use the white media makes of it. This call for self-value and self-love is quite different from narcissism. Narcissism comes not out of self-love but out of self-hatred.”
I Am Your Sister: Collected and Unpublished Writings of Audre Lorde
I don't understand extroversion. So I feel the introverted sister. My older sister is more extroverted than I am and sometimes it gets on my nerves, because she's like "let's go out!" And then I say "okay where?" And then she's like " why do I have to come up with stuff all the time?" And in my head I exclaim ,"because your the one who wants to go out!!!!"
Hey, friend. I understand where you’re coming from - as I happen to be the introverted sister in the conversation. I think I understand extroverts a little better than a lot of my fellow introverts, though, probably having to do with my sister being my best friend and us spending a lot of time together. We make allowances for each other. She lets me hang by myself when I want, and occasionally I allow her to drag me out to do things. ;)
So, here are some things to remember and tips to understanding extroverts (and you can apply these to hanging out/understanding pretty much anyone)
They have needs like you do. Not the same needs, but that doesn’t make them any less important or valid. Just because you need time to relax and chill and unwind in quiet seclusion with a book or a cat or a movie or your headphones or all of the above, doesn’t mean that’s what your sister needs.
Have you ever asked if your need to be left alone to recharge “sometimes
gets on her nerves”? Try raising that question sometime. The answer
might surprise you.
Respect their needs. Make allowances for them, just like with anyone
else. If you care for someone, you’re going to go out of your way to
show that. It’s not going to hurt you to cater to someone else for a bit
to make their day a little brighter, trust me. (You will probably feel
exhausted, but actually better about yourself in the end.)
There was the advice, here are the tips.
1. Strategically place your Extrovert in an energizing environment to recharge whenever possible: Introverts
are batteries. They need downtime to recharge. Extroverts are solar
panels. They need to absorb energy from other things to recharge. You
know how you get edgy and uncomfortable and worn down when you’re
overstimulated by people and activity? Extroverts feel the same way when
there is. nothing. for. them. to. do. They can’t stand it. It makes
them physically uncomfortable and can lead to bouts of depression.
2. Sometimes your Extrovert desperately needs attention/activity, but may not know how to address this need: This is when you step in. Extroverts are famous for their ability to look after themselves and blaze their own trails, but even they can’t keep up that pace for long. As an Introvert, you’ve got just as much creativity in your bones as they do - sometimes, arguably but not conclusively, more so. So if your Extrovert flops on your bed and looks at you pleadingly and says “I want to go do something” and sends you a text and adds “but I don’t know whaaaaat!” then it’s your time to make a choice. Keep a list of activities close at hand that both you and your Extrovert enjoy, and whip it out on these very occasions. Be wacky with it. Have some tried-and-true favorites saved, but don’t overuse them:
cafes (at which you can introvert on a laptop while they extrovert with the noise and people, just be sure not to ignore them!)
and sporty things (like, idk, bowling) or
sporting events (baseball games!)
-are all good things to put on that list.
3. Many Extroverts, like many Introverts, enjoy a good cuddle. Give your Extrovert plenty of hugs and physical affection. This can do a lot to brighten their day and ensure a healthy relationship.
4. Take your Extrovert along when you go shopping: Have some errands to run? Need to replace those old favorite shoes at last? Bring along your Extrovert. This is the perfect opportunity to spend time together, and to expose your extrovert to the soul-strengthening energy of other people and activity without requiring a full-blown neighborhood block party. Malls are great for this, as there are a lot of people around, but you don’t have to do a lot of interpersonal communication with strangers like you might in another setting.
Note: if you do not have the ability to drive, ask friends or parents to help you get your Extrovert out into the world more. Make family activities out of (or don’t, your choice) and find ways to energize your Extrovert without leaving the house. This can be harder, but doable. Make sure your Extrovert gets to hang with their friends every so often, as this gets them into a new environment and lends quality time to those relationships too.
5. Your Extrovert is NOT “high maintenance”: Your Extrovert requires a good deal of care to be healthy and happy, but no more so than you. When your friends let you be alone for a bit, they are caring about you enough to leave you out as needed. When your Extrovert goes off to do their own thing without you, they are probably taking your introvertedness into account. Introverts also tend to internalize things more than Extroverts. Your Extrovert may often voice opinions, feelings, or problems you think about but keep to yourself. This doesn’t mean you are dealing with them better, or that they are. You just have different methods of facing things, and that’s okay. Talk to your Extrovert about these things as they come up, and remember to continue to participate in the conversation once you’ve got your Extrovert going.
6. If your Extrovert appears sluggish or down, Emergency Measures should be taken IMMEDIATELY:
This is it, friend, this is the time when your Extrovert is as their
neediest, and it’s possible the lack of stimuli and energy is going to lead them into a depressed emotional state. They require something energizing and fast. Grab the car keys
and dash out to the movie theater, or just sit down and ask them about
their day and be prepared to listen, and ask for details, encourage the
conversation from their side. Extroverts like talking, Introverts like
listening - honestly, we should be able to get along just fine. A good
cure for this dangerous time is a good dinner out someplace (doesn’t
have to be fancy), and a car trip for twenty minutes or so (turn up some tunes if conversation is
lacking, this will still help to stimulate your Extrovert) but usually not longer, as your Extrovert can grow bored. Live out in the middle of nowhere? Roll those windows down and take turns shouting at the cows to see if you can get them to react. Live in a metropolis area? Just take a walk down the city
streets, maybe buy them some ice cream. (Warning: sugar at this
stage can be very beneficial, but can also lead to an extremely hyper
state which, if you’re not careful, can lead to a breakdown. Ice cream
is good, but make sure to do something afterward to help that energy
work through their system - and yours!)
7. Try to say “Yes” to your Extrovert at least as many times as you say “No”:
Why? Because your Extrovert is another human being, equally as
important as you are. If you say no to parties, nights on the town,
double dates, or random cafe visits, make sure you say yes to them too.
Your Extrovert probably knows about your introvertedness and will
respect it more as you respect them.
Your Extrovert will appreciate this, and in the end you will too as you build an awesome relationship and learn about how other people function outside your own personal bubble. Keep your eyes open. ;)
All relationships require some give
and take. Make time for yourself of course, but try to give more than you take.
Extroverts are not more special. Introverts are not more special. They’re just different. We’re all just different. So take care of your Extrovert, and they will take care of you.
I hope this helps! Remember, EXTROVERTS ARE PEOPLE TOO so take care of yours! ;)
you look important… or at least your suit does.
statements like that can get you into a lot of trouble around here.

I am running a small, self written 5e campaign for my 15 yo sister (elf rogue) and my 14 yo cousin (human paladin). I gave them inspiration points to teach them how to use them, and they sort of accumulated. The rogue also charmed a bandit they found dying and he joined their ranks.
Me: you see Tony playing with Ash (century foal they just rescued from a necromancer) while you two are dividing up the loot, and you see him freeze for a second, shake his head, then look at you sideways….
Me: … And then he goes back to playing with Ash.
Paladin: I was getting ready to fight, I swear I was
Rogue: I walk up to them and say to Ash, you ready to go home?
Rogue: And you, Tony?
Tony: … yeah. I mean, there isn’t really anything left for me here…. also, you put a spell on me? I just wanna get that out of the way, you did put a spell on me.
Rogue: well I– yeah. I did.
Tony: also, you, uh, you got a little schmutz (blood) there, just, like, you whole general face… area.
Rogue: oh, here? I grab him and kiss him.
Me: oh my god, please remember, I am your sister, I have to do this, please remember I am youR SISTER!
Rogue: i kiss him
Me: …. roll charisma.
Rogue: fails and proceeds to spend all of her inspiration points to kiss the guy she put a spell on.
When I say I am a Black feminist, I mean I recognize that my power as well as my primary oppressions come as a result of my Blackness as well as my womanness, and therefore my struggles on both these fronts are inseparable.
Audre Lorde, “I am Your Sister: Black Women Organizing Across Sexualities” (1985)
“My head is pounding”, you whined and you swore it was
like ten axes were inside your skull and wanted you dead in a matter of
seconds. It was the worst headache you’ve ever had and you didn’t have the slightest
idea why it was like that. You weren’t hangover. On the contrary, you had a
blissful night in with your boyfriend, and nothing peculiar had happened for
you to feel that way. So, this situation only left you with unanswered questions.
“Still bad?”, your sister asked you and you flinched
at the volume of her voice. She was speaking naturally, but your headache made
it feel like she was shouting at the top of her lungs.
“Please keep your voice down, you are killing me”, you
said and your sister got up to touch your forehead. With that simple gesture
she had her answers.
“Well, it looks like you are coming down with a cold
Y/N”, she said seriously and you shivered. You hated being sick and that was
the last thing you wanted. It was still summer and you would spend your days
drinking that prescribed syrup along with eating those disgusting soups. Apart from
that, you didn’t want to force Harry to stay in with you. He would like to go
out or have a nice time at the park but he would have to take care of nauseas and
fevers. It was just unfair for him.
“No this can’t be happening”, you complained and your
sister placed her hands on her hips. She was trying not to laugh at your state
but she didn’t do a good job at hiding it. She burst out giggling and you threw
a cushion at her, hitting her directly at the head.
“I guarantee you it hurt”, your sister ironically said
and she went to the kitchen. She had to leave in some minutes but she couldn’t
leave you behind like that all alone. So she phoned Harry.
“Harry speakin’, who’s this?”, he said through the
speaker and your sister whispered.
“Hi Harry, it’s me, Y/S/N. Just wanted to let you know
that Y/N might be coming down with a cold. She already has a fever and-“, she
was interrupted by you screaming that you wanted to vomit and she corrected her
“Scratch that. She has a fever and she has started
vomiting already. I have to go in some minutes so I thought I needed to fill
you in”, your sister finished and she heard shuffling at the other end of the
“Be right there in five. Try to calm her a bit yeah? Thank
yeh Y/S/N”, he said and hung up. Your sister came into the bathroom, where you
were brushing your teeth, to get rid of the ugly taste.
“Thank God mom is not here”, your sister joked and
your eyes widened at her statement. Your mom overreacted over the simplest of
things. When you or your sister were ill, she would just call the doctor every
single hour to inform him of your condition and she made sure you had all the
medicine you needed. You appreciated her caring, but it would be too much
“Don’t even joke about it. It is unhealthy”, you wiped
your mouth with the towel and followed your sister in the living room where you
both sat down on the couch.
“Y/N, I really need to go. Jason wants to go pick up a
gift for his mother’s birthday and I can’t miss it. Promise me you won’t go
around spilling soup”, she pleaded and you flipped her off.
“I will be dead in a matter of hours so no soup is
going to be all over the place”, you answered and your sister sighed. You had
the tendency to overreact when you were sick and no one could handle that. Your
“Okay I am going to start preparing your funeral then”,
and that had always been her answer since day one. You and your sister had a
weird kind of relationship. You would go on and compliment each other but you
would flip each other off whereas when you would offend each other you would
hug and bro fist one another. People were always confused.
“Say hi to Jason”, you tried to say before rushing to
the bathroom to empty your stomach for the second time that day.
“Be sure I will”, your sister said more to herself
than to you and got into her car, ready to go meet her boyfriend. Speaking of a
boyfriend, Harry was on his way and he had tried to contact you but you hadn’t
used your phone that day meaning it was still turned off. When he stepped foot
in the house, he stopped himself from calling your name when he saw you curled
up on the sofa, tissues all over you and your restless face giving away your
exhaustion and pain.
“Meh poor girl”, he said and kicked off his shoes
before making his way to you. You had grabbed a blanket from your room and had
it wrapped around you. You were practically like a sneezing ball. Your head
perked up at the sound of the door opening and closing and when you saw Harry,
you snuggled closer to the blanket.
“Don’t get closer Harry, you will be sick too”, you cried
out, but your voice came out muffled because of the blanket. Harry kept coming
towards you nonetheless and he kneeled in front of you.
“This isn’t gonna stop meh love. How many times have
yeh run to the bathroom?”, he softly asked you and you melted at his voice. He was
trying to soothe you and it worked pretty well.
“Twice so far. But there’s more coming I tell you”,
you said and leaned your head backwards. You wanted to sleep and Harry quite
“Okay tell yeh what. I will go upstairs and ran yeh a
bath. Yeh will relax and I will call the doctor to tell meh what to do with meh
sick girl. Sounds okay?”, he said and he picked you up bridal style. You found
the opportunity to lean against his warm chest and breathe in his scent. You could
stay there, in his arms, for an eternity and there was no lie in this
When you entered your bedroom, he gently placed you on
the bed, and he disappeared in the bathroom to set the right temperature for
your bath. You placed your head on your pillow and sleep started taking over when
Harry reappeared from inside the bathroom and scooped you up.
“No sleep yet baby. Your bath is waitin’ fo’ yeh”, he
said and placed you in front of the bathroom door.
“Yeh go in there and treat yourself whereas I talk to
the doctor alright?”, he turned to leave but you stopped him. You knew it would
be better if he was there to take care of you. He always did. And he was so
good at it.
“Mind if I change the plans a bit?”, you innocently
asked and Harry grinned.
“Tell meh babygirl”, he indicated for you to go on.
“Why don’t you take a shower with me? If there’s
someone who can calm me, that’s you Harry”, you spoke and you were truthful. There
was no dirty intention in your proposal. You just wanted to relax with your
“Thought yeh never ask”, he said and slowly took your
clothes off, caressing the exposed skin he could find ever so softly, careful
not make you feel any more pain. He took his clothes off as well, and got into
the bathtub after you. You sat between his legs and he stated kissing your back
and neck, in a soothing manner, knowing you would feel slightly better. And he
was right. The water was perfect and Harry tried his best to take your mind of
off your sickness. He grabbed the shampoo and started massaging your scalp in
an attempt to calm you.
“Just what I needed. Thank you so much love”, you said
and closed your eyes, cherishing the feeling of Harry’s massaging skills. You started
scrubbing your body and Harry snatched the sponge from your hands.
“Nah ah. I will take care of yeh baby. Don’t yeh worry”,
he said, kissing your shoulder before he replaced some gel on the sponge. The water
was running by now, and you were lost in the purity of the moment. Harry always
wanted to make you feel good and he always said it was like a repayment for
what you had done for him all along. After some time, he water had run cold so
he took hold of your towel before wrapping it lovingly around your tired frame
before he did the same with his towel on him.
“Time fo’ pyjamas babe”, he smiled lazily and he moved
towards the closet, grabbing an old T-shirt of his and your favourite bottoms
with little bears imprinted on them. You had worn your undergarments already
and you were waiting for your pyjamas to be passed to you but Harry had other
“Let meh”, he stroked your arms, while he placed your
arms in front of you and put the shirt on you. He then, stroked your thighs and
legs gently, like you were going to disappear or like you were the most fragile
thing in the entire world. He made you feel loved. There was no denying in
that. When he was done, he kissed you passionately but you distanced yourself.
“Harry, I am sick!”, you said and he smiled.
“Did that stop meh back in the shower? Don’t mind meh
love. I am not that sensitive like yeh are”, he said and you tugged at his
“If that’s the case, cuddle me then”, you said and
yawned. Harry placed himself on the bed and you hugged him tightly, while he
played with your hair; just like you preferred it.
“I love you Harry”, you suddenly said and Harry smiled
in your hair.
“I love meh sick girl too”.
And just like that, you fell asleep, feeling secure in
his embrace and wishing that you could freeze time and stay like that for what
seemed like forever; in each others’ loving arms.
Ugh guys, this is so sweet. Where has Harry been all the times I was ill? Before I drag my whining ass away, let me thank that person for requesting this and making me die in the most gentle way possible. Requests are still open and I am waiting for your crazy ideas people! (P.S. Harry is treating us so well lately I can’t bear it!)
“You look lovely today my lady.” He complemented, pulling her closed to his side.
“Thank you, your grace.” You smiled thankfully.
“Joffrey, please.” He spoke kindly, stopping at a bench.
“Joffrey.” You paused, closing your eyes fearing a blow to your cheek but when none came you sighed and look at him, and he flashed you a cat-like smile, “Joffrey, thank you for taking time to walk with me.”
Though it was you who requested my company.
He smiled brighter, growing into a smirk and dropped your arm for your hand, “Yes.. Sit with me.” He spoke emotionless and you obeyed quickly looking at the flowers instead of him, still slightly afraid.
“The flowers are beautiful yo- Joffrey.”
“I’m sure they are nothing compared to the ones Highgarden, I am sure.”
“Neigh.” You forced a smile as the lie fell through your lips, “Everything is more beautiful in the capital.”
“Certainly.” He sighed in a whispered tone as he grabbed your cheek and turned you to meet his eyes, placing his hand under your chin and not moving it. “Y/N… I have brought you here today, to the spot were we first met, for a reason.”
“Yes, your grace.”
“Sorry… Joffrey…” You blinked and portrayed a look of innocence in attempts to hide your fear. But his gripped stronged as he placed his other hand on your cheek.
Joffrey smiled gently, “Lady Y/N Tyrell… I know I am promised to your sister-”
Oh gods… Oh Gods please no…
“And I did love her for her beauty. But then I laid eyes on you.. And the moment I did my world stopped… What I am trying to say is I have moved my bethrothal to you other than your sister and we will be married by months end and I couldn’t be happier.”
You were gaping but you couldn’t hide your shock.
You needed to get out, right now.
“May I be excused, your grace?” You asked, pulling away, standing up and walking off, before getting your response Tears of fear and panic cluttered your face as you bit your lips to stop a sob from escaping your mouth.
The sand felt nice on your as you walked along the beach, your friend carrying your shoes in his hands.
“You are right, Jorah.” You smiled at him, then at the ocean beside you, “This truly is beautiful.”
He smiled thoughtfully at you, nodding in agreement and a calming silence filled the area.
“How is the Khaleesi?” He asked, breaking silence.
“Doing the best she can I suppose.” You shrugged sadly, “She is so strong and brave. yet so graceful. I wish sometimes that I held her faith and strength.”
Jorah smiled at this, grabbing your hand and giving it a small squeeze as you looked at him, then back out at the never ending sea as it spit in your face.
You sighed, knowing that there was no use in waiting.
If I do not tell him, Dany will.
“Jorah?” You questioned looking at him, he made a small hmmm, and looking at you, your hands shaking and you looked away. I must do it now…. “Jorah I have these feelings for you… And I have to know if you share these feelings at all or if… If I not I would not like to lose our frien-”
He cut you off by placing a sweet kiss to your forehead, squeezing your hand tightly. Murmuring against your brow, he said, “I have found myself loving you as well, Y/N”
Smiling at this, you looked up at him, leaning on his shoulder saying a silent thank you to the gods that you did not make a fool of yourself.
Tear flooded your eyes as you looked at his body.
This literally cannot be happening… You thought. Why is this happening…
“M-May I please have a moment alone?” You questioned the men, not looking back to see their response, only hearing the door shut.
It was then when you threw yourself onto the slab and clung to your friends dead body, sobbing uncontrollably.
He is cold. Cold and bruised and scraped. Something he should never be.
Shaking, you placed your lips to his forehead and hugged him, whispering in his ear silent things that you had kept secret. You whispered of your love for his eyes, for his hair, for his mind, for him, and trembled at the sight of his pale skin.
You barely noticed when a women placed her hand on her shoulder and a man picked you up, setting you on a bed where you fell into a dreamless sleep.
You woke up to warm breath and the tickle of beard against your neck, the sent of pine filling your nose. Looking up, you saw those dark eyes that you had fallen for such a long time ago and reached up, cupping his face with your hands.
“Have I died from grief, my love?” You spoke weak and hoarsely, blinking several times as Jon moved closer to you.
He shook is head, a smile brightly on his lips, one you had never seen in your life. You made a small o with your lips, your voice hurting too much to respond causing both of your eyes to water slightly.
“I heard your words.” Jon confessed.
“Did you?” You asked, too weak to figure out if he was truthful or not.
He nodded, “Aye.” He smiled again giving you a small gentle peck on your lips and pulling your weak body up as to hug you tightly. When at last pulling apart, you placed your forehead to his as he mumbled against your lips, “I feel the same.”
“Are you doing alright Lady Y/N? Truly?” He asked panicked as you nodded, grabbing his hand as you knew it calmed him down.
He was afraid, and rightfully so. A Baratheon in the North? It was danger which is why he locked you in his own tent, you sleeping in the day and him at night, though truthfully neither of you got much sleep.
You had told him all the plans you, knew, which wasn’t much but his words fear was one of his men finding you here and hurting you, perhaps even throwing you in a cell with your Uncle Jamie. Who knows what would happen from there.
“Robb your generosity is something I cannot thank you enough for.” You smiled lightly, “I am safer here than I was in King’s Landing.” You squeezed his hand gently, causing him to exhale and kneel beside you, his eyes never straying from yours. “I… I am so sorry Robb.” You sighed gently, tears in your eyes as you looked away. “I wish I could have-”
“You were packing and on your way to me, Y/N. There is nothing you could do.” He sighed to quickly, something you assumed he was doing to mask his tears. “I am sorry about your father as well.”
Smiling at the memory of your Lord Father, you looked down and sighed, “He died justly. Peacefully. It was the only way I could imagine him going I suppose.” Robb and you both chuckled at this and silence once again fell until Robb broke it.
“I.. I think I am love with you, Y/N.”
Your heart panged in your chest and you looked at the ground blinking slightly until you kneeled beside him, wrapping him in a tight embrace.
“I think I am in love with you too Robb.”
“Can’t we go on a walk around the garden?” You smirked at him, “Aren’t you bored?” He looked up from his desk and eyed you as you toyed with books off the shelf. Gently smiling, he looked back at his paper work. “C’mon Tommy!”
“Fine.” He confessed, “I am bored. These people think they get so much for doing so little. But I am the King. It is my duty to finish this. Ser Pounce is sure in need of a bit of fresh air though-”
You sighed, picking up the cat and sitting on Tommen’s desk, the cat being put in your lap as you stroked his ears, “ Tommy I haven’t seen you properly since Joffrey died-”
“Nor I you since the Red Wedding.” He spoke in agreement, taking a free hand to pet his cat. “Look… Y/N I-”
“Is this for the wedding?” you asked, seeing an envelope with the Tyrell Rose on it. Tommen nodded, a strange look on his face and you bit your tongue to prevent yourself from swearing, “I am very excited for you my friend.”
He chuckled curtly, “I am not.”
You eyed him suspiciously and looked him up and down, “Why not Tom?”
“She is a beauty. Any man would be lucky to call her his Lady wife, but there is such an age gap.” He pursed his lips, “Besides, my heart lies with someone else.”
Your heart skipped a beat at this. You knew that it couldn’t be you, but you truly hoped. I am a traitors daughter. A deserters sister. You reminded yourself I mean nothing to him.
“Who?” you asked numbly. Though you did not really want to know, it was polite to ask.
Tommen blushed and dropped his pen, reaching for your hand across the desk with one arm, and the other turned you to face him. His eyes were the softest and most gentle you had ever seen and it as though you were having a conversation with your eyes.
Forcing him to drop your hand you fell into his arms, looking up at him so you could respond.
I love you to Tommen. I have always loved you.
You couldn’t stop crying. You knew you had to, but you couldn’t. It was worse, somehow, when “Reek” had come to walk you down the isle.
Instead, you ran to him, wrapping your arms tightly around him and sobbed into his shoulder.
“Please don’t make me do this.”
“I don’t want to marry him.” You let go of Reek and began pacing. “He’s a foul creature. A monster. He’ll kill me I’m certain.”
He slowly made his way before you to reach out and touch you. “Y/N.” He repeated, still in a whisper, clearly not audible to your panic.
“He’ll poison me with his seed and as soon as I pop out a son he’ll feed me to the hounds like all the daughters I birthed before our boy.”
“Y/N!” He yelled at last but you weren’t listening.
“No… No maybe he won’t.” You pondered, oddly calm, “Maybe he’ll throw me from a tower. Or maybe he’ll cut off my legs so I can’t-”
Reek cut you off by grabbing you tightly and pressing his shaking lips to your temple, knowing it calms you.
“Y/N…” He whispered again, “I don’t want you to marry him either.”
“Re-No… No Theon… Theon…” He smiled gently, “More or less.. Theon Greyjoy would say he has loved you for the longest time and will defend you to the best of your ability. And will kill anyone who tires to catch your fancy,”
You laughed quietly and squeezed him tightly, “Y/N Stark would say that she shares his feelings and would wed him right now to save the two of them to the bastard she is promised to.”
He kissed your chin as he let you go, looking you up to down.
“Theon Greyjoy, and Reek I suppose, must protect their lady. Starting with this.” He dropped a small vial in your hands and you looked at it confused, “Drink it now.”
You almost dropped it when a knock came at your door.
“Reek! Hurry now! Everyone is freezing.” The bastard yelled from outside the door, “Tell my bride to walk down naked if she must! I will not wait another-”
“Take it. Now my lady. Hurry.”
You obeyed and forced the liquid into your mouth, Theon, taking the bottle once you had finished and threw it into the fire, linking arms with you and leading you outside.
And you cried out again. Tears of fear, loss and helplessness, but oddly enough, tears of joy.
“Why are you here, mi-lady?” He questioned you. “Is everything alright?”
You smiled at him, bowing your head before you sat at his desk, a small blush on your face.
“I am sorry to disrupt you, my lord but it is a matter of most importance.”
Tyrion dropped his pen and looked up from his piece of paper, his mind filling with concern as he went through all the possibilities big or small.
Are you dying? Are you leaving?
Did something happen to your family? Did something happen to his family?
Are you hurt? Are you sick?
“My Lord?” You asked, your eyes filling with his concern, “My lord are you all right?”
He nodded, grabbing your hand and forcing a smile, “Quite. What Is the matter?”
You sighed and squeezed his hand tight before releasing the grip to calm yourself, “I have… How do I say it… I have grown feelings… But they are improper.. And I have tried to push them away but I have failed.
“Feelings?” He spoke numbing, fearing the response you would give, “Feelings for Joffrey?”
“For my lord father?”
“For Gods sake.. Please tell me they aren’t for the Queen regent!?”
You chuckled slightly at this, “Nay my Lord. I have grown feelings for you.”
His eyes widened at this and he opened his mouth to release an Oh, but no noise came out as he sat in shock.
“I am sorry my lord. I know of the improper nature, for I am a serving girl and you are a high born Lord but I thought it best to tell you that-”
“Nay.” He repeated and you tilted your head to the sighed, “No don’t say another word about impropertity cause I do not care.” He smiled brightly at you and brought your hand to his lips, “Meet me here come nightfall. We shall take a walk.” You bowed your head, smiling before standing up and walking to the door before he stopped you.
“Oh and Y/N.”
“Yes my Lord?”
“Thank you for telling me.” He smirked at you.
For I feel the same and never would have told you the truth
Allura and Lance, comparing the Broganes over a spa day.
Lance stretched and leaned back. “Man,
this is so much nicer than the pool.”
It turned out the Castle had a “Rejuvenation
Suite,” or, as Lance insisted on calling it, a “Space Spa.” Allura decided it
wasn’t worth correcting him, especially not now.
She and Lance were each ensconced in
a single-person soaking tub filled with medicinal and rejuvenating herbs and
salts. She’d chosen the “Relaxation” packet; Lance had gone for “Revitalizing”.
Soft scents wafted through the room, changing from juniberry to starpetal to
arcleaf, drifting from one to the other like a lazy hummingbee. There was a
quiet background music, just loud enough to hear if you wanted to, but quiet
enough to ignore if that was your desire. The lights dimmed and brightened at
slow, random intervals, never getting too bright or too hot. It was like
Lance had his eyes closed as he
sighed happily. “Can I just live here? Like, can this be my room?”
She laughed a little and closed her
own eyes. “No. The Rejuvenation Suite is for everyone’s use. And if you bring
Keith down here, you two have to behave.
These tubs are single occupancy.”
He snorted. “We’ll behave when you
and Shiro behave.”
She sat upright so quickly her tub
sloshed a little. Fortunately, there was no spillage. “We behave!” she
Lance cracked one eye to look at her
doubtfully. “You two were behaving last week when we caught you in the kitchen?
THAT was behaving?”
Allura blushed and resettled herself
in the tub. “Yes, actually, that was
behaving.” She knew she probably shouldn’t, but the impulse hit her and she
couldn’t help herself. “You should see what he’s like when we’re in the Black
Lance snickered and closed his eyes.
“I do not need to see that. Well…
actually, I might not mind, but Keith would hit the ceiling.”
“Really? He doesn’t seem sex-averse
“Oh, trust me, Princess, he very
much IS NOT.” She rolled her head over to find him grinning. “But he and Shiro
have that whole ‘bro’ thing going on. He gets squidgy about it.”
“Yeah, y’know: squidgy.”
“I know a dozen different languages,
and none of them have such a word.”
“It’s kind of like ‘ew’ but with
more ‘ugh’ to it.”
Her brow furrowed. “Anyway, he doesn’t
like hearing about Shiro’s sex life? Is that the point you’re trying to make?”
“Yeah, pretty much. I don’t mind though.”
She laughed. “You already saw some
of it! And, for the record, I was just trying to make tea. The rest of that was
all his idea.” She cleared her throat. “Sometimes it feels like you and Keith
aren’t even dating at all. If you hadn’t announced it over the Castle’s comm
systems, I might not even believe it.”
“Eh, Keith isn’t a big PDA person.”
“Eyyyyyyyyyy!” he finished with a
grin. “Yeah, Public Displays of Affection. It kind of drove me nuts at first,
but then I realized that it’s,” his voice softened from smugness into quiet
satisfaction, “well, it’s kind of like I get to keep all of that to myself.
Just for me.”
“Aww, that’s kind of sweet.”
“It is, isn’t it? It’s actually
amazing how sweet Keith can be sometimes. Like, even when I think he’s not
listening to me, and I’m just babbling and being annoying, he’ll say or do something
days later that proves he really heard
me. Like when I was running out of my moisturizer, and he…”
“Oh, is that why he asked me about
that? I thought maybe you were just rubbing off on him.”
“Every chance I get!” Lance
She rolled her eyes, but stayed on
subject. “He got that for you?”
“Yeah, he did. And it works great,
by the way!”
“You are glowing,” she confirmed, “but I just assumed that was because
of Keith himself and not the new skincare product.”
Lance blushed a little but rolled
his head over, opened both eyes, and grinned. “I ain’t the only one glowin’
around here, sister.”
“I am not your sister nor am I
“GLOOOWWWINNNNG,” he insisted in a
sing-song voice. “Shiro smiles and you light up like a Christmas tree.”
“I don’t know what that is, but I’m
certain you’re overstating it.” She was trying to ignore the fact that her face
was heating up.
“He’s a little more PDA than Keith is,
anyway. The little cheek kisses and things like that. You two are like
something out of a storybook.”
“Oh, stop that, we are not.”
“You totally are! The beautiful
princess and her dashing knight! Er, paladin, in this case. It’s perfect.”
“Well, you and Keith are the
brothers-in-arms who always have each other’s backs, fighting side-by-side
against evil. So I’m fairly certain you’re a storybook refugee yourself.”
Lance grinned widely and leaned back
against the tub. “Face it, Allura: You and I are pretty much the two luckiest
people in the universe.”
She smirked a little. “No, we’re
not. Shiro and Keith are.”
Could you write a oneshot where the reader is the wife of Jaime Lannister and they have a son, who looks like his father. To the public, the reader and Jaime looks like the perfect couple, but behind close doors, it is a loveless, political marriage.

However, after many years of hardship together, he finally returns her feelings and tells her for the first time tells her he loves her.
Pairing: Jaime Lannister x Reader Fandom: GoT ; ASoIaF Warnings: mentions of abuse/torture ; language
A/N: somehow, my jaime x reader fics always end up 5+ pages and they’re filled with angst. I don’t know why, but it legit only happens with him. anyways, this was.. my god, an INCREDIBLE request. I live for these requests, I really do. I hope you enjoy it my dear!
closed your eyes and enjoyed the sun on your face for a moment.
Landing was blessed with nice and sunny weather most of the days, but
you could rarely bathe in the sun like today.
were sitting in the royal gardens, a book in your lap, while your son
and Bronn were playing sword fighting in front of you.
only opened your eyes again, when you heard your son’s laughter. He
was standing over Bronn, a triumphal smile on his face and, oh god, he
looked so much like his father. It amazed you every single time.
WON!” he turned towards you, but right then, Bronn pulled him down and started tickling him.
sure, boy?” your son laughed and tried to fight back, but he was at
his uncle’s mercy.
approached the scene and Bronn let go of Kieran, who immediately ran
towards his father. He picked him up and hugged him tightly.
Bronn kept laying in the grass and grinned, then he turned his head towards
talented, that boy.”
I know,” you smiled kindly at the man in the grass and then got up
to join Jaime and Kieran. “Husband,” you kissed his cheek.
he nodded and thanked Bronn for the lesson with Kieran today, then
the three of you went towards the castle.
ran in front of the two of you, so you hooked your arm with Jaime’s. He
tensed under the touch, but didn’t let it show. You could feel it
still wondered how he even managed to have sex with you that one time, for him to finally get his heir.
“Greetings, true-brother to my darling one. I am Jaal Ama Darav, ninth of the Ama Daravs. The Angara do not have siblings that are tweens so I hope I am addressing you properly. While I know multiple humans, and have prepared extensively for this introduction, I fear there will be shortcomings–please, do not hesitate to address any areas that are lacking and I will do my best to form a strong impression. Sara has been irrevocably dear to me for several of your months now. I have been in complete awe of her strength, beauty, and intelligence–for every quality she possesses can only capture my fullest admiration. I have expressed my ardent passions clearly to her, and she has expressed her sharing of them. I have therefore made you a rofjinn
to demonstrate my truest desire to join with your family.”
Scott sat numbly as Jaal cleared his throat, leaning over the man’s hospital bed to gingerly clasp a lavender rofjinn around his shoulders.
“I…I have been told by another human that these are comfortable,” Jaal finished, looking away to the side.
Scott, clad in lavender, looked up at the other side of his hospital bed.Sara stood next to him, awkwardly rubbing the back of her neck.
Jaal coughed into his hand. Scott slowly turned to face him. The Angaran lowered his voice, slightly mollified. “Additionally, my mother would like to know if you enjoy any particular human Earth sweets.”
Scott turned back to his twin sister. “Sara, what’s happening.”
She gave a strained smile. “He was nervous.”
Scott looked at Jaal. Who smiled. Then looked back to Sara. “Who is he.”
“I am Jaal Ama Darav, devoted companion and lover of your true-sister.”
The younger Ryder pinched the bridge of his nose, his voice a tired whisper. “I just woke up.”
Eggsy Unwin walked in to his living room to find one Harry Hart, SuperSpy, Surviour-of-a-Bullet-to-the-Head, Head of a Secret Organisation, and just generally all round Badass, staring at his five year old sister in horror as though she had just declared that Oxfords were repulsive and Brogues the height of fashion.
She hadn’t of course. She was five. Glitter was the height of fashion for her. Also Harry had known Daisy for years at this point, so why was he suddenly terrified? She hadn’t even gotten any of the aforementioned glitter on a single piece of furniture (which was an act of fucking magic really).
“Harry? You okay there bruv?”
“Daisy is five years old. Your sister is five years old.” Harry stated without tearing his still terrified gaze away from Daisy who was happily drawing pictures of what appeared to be a very overweight pug.
“Yep. You was at her party last month. You wore an Elsa party hat. ‘member?” Eggsy was honestly confused and slightly worried by Harry’s behaviour.
“But she’s your sister Eggsy, and she’s five years old.” Harry looked up at Eggsy with pure horror in his eyes and Eggsy thought even if Harry was having one of those ‘oh she’s growing up so fast how is it possible’ moments that his mum was so fond of, he was still kind of overreacting.
“I’m confused Harry. What is going on?”
“Your sister is five years old. I am fifty five years old.”
“Are we just stating people’s ages now?”
“….. My sister-in-law is fifty years younger than me”
