If you could design your own dice, what would you want?
Oh man. So, being totally self-indulgent and probably not business-savvy at all: borealis in every color. Every shade. A perfect ombre rainbow of borealises. Imagine like this:
But instead of candies, it’s borealis dice. (Btw, that’s Dylan’s Candy Bar in NYC, which is basically the closest thing I know to Nirvana.)
But more pragmatically, more interesting color combos! As it stands, Chessex seems to do the same (safe) set of colors for every line they do, with very little variation. I want things like magenta with teal numbers! Rose gold with pale pink! Serpent green with avocado! Orchid purple with crimson! Neon cerulean with numbers the deep all-knowing indigo where space meets atmosphere! Everything vivid and bright and gorgeous!
Request: I wanted to request a “proposal”, where Yoongi asks y/n to marry him. Thank you girls + I’ll put both my requests in one ask! My first request is a late night trip with yoongi (like he calls you in the middle of the night for a car trip and takes reader to the sea [and there he propose to her])
You woke up a bit startled, not expecting Yoongi’s lips just above your right ear making you tingle and confused at the same time.
-What is it babe?-
He kissed your ear making you have goosebumps. -Wake up-
You opened your eyes completely and sat. -But what is it? Yoongi it’s like… the middle of the night- you said not even knowing what time it was.
-Come on, get up and get dressed- he smiled when he turned on the lights and then you noticed he was fully dressed, jeans, a black t-shirt that exposed his collarbones if he leaned forward and a denim jacket.
You were on a little vacation retreat in Jeju Island, it was your second day on the island and you had big plans for the rest of week, several activities typical of Jeju and of course lots of sleep, both of you needed that. So it took you by surprise that Yoongi was so eager to go out in the middle of the night. But then it made you remember that you used to do it a lot when you started dating, late night trips around the city. A smile came to your face and you got up from the bed, your boyfriend was such a low-key romantic.
-Give me a second then-
You wondered what you should wear for this night late night extravaganza Yoongi had in mind. You giggle at the thought, he’d frown and grumble if you told him that. You went for a a little summer dress, you were in an island after all, so you had brought mostly shorts and dresses, but you wanted to be comfortable so you threw on the pretty black dress with purple and pink flowers print, the sleeves were long but they got wider from your elbow to your wrist making the simple dress have a trendy cut, you saw the rather low v-neck and decided that you had to also throw on a jacket just in case the night was chilly.
-Where are we going Yoongi?- you asked when you walked out of the bathroom. You had rushed on the light makeup and your hair since part of the emotion of the late night trips was the rush and the unexpected, but you still wanted to look nice.
-It’s a surprise- he said not giving anything away.
You pouted. -I just want to know if I’m good-
Yoongi came closer to you, and this time his smile didn’t fit on his face, it was contagious as you found yourself smiling back. -What?-
-You are beautiful Y/N- he leaned down and pecked your lips. -Let’s go-
You went together hand by hand, the hotel was well illuminated this late, but it was lone aside from some occasional personnel you encountered as you walked your way out of the building, it was a chilly night as you had suspected, you walked through the gardens and the pools the hotel had just before you found the exit to the beach.
-Yoongi, what is this? where are we going?-
He smiled more and squeezed your hand as you started to walk in the sand, it slipped through your sandals and it was all over his shoes.
-You’ll see Y/N, just follow me-
You laughed. -I’m following you babe, but this…-
-Are you nervous?- he teased and you pushed his shoulder making him laugh louder.
-Wait a moment- you said leaning down to take off your sandals. - Yoongi!- you nagged when he snapped a picture of you as you were taking them off. He laughed and you shook your head knowing it couldn’t be helped -You too babe- you said as he complied and took off his shoes. -It’s so weird you came here with those and not your beloved sandals-
-I forgot, I wasn’t thinking about my footwear for tonight-
You sharpened your gaze with a coy smile. -And what were you thinking then?-
Yoongi smiled like a fool and squeezed your hand again, was he nervous? -Come Y/N-
The sand was cold and it was very smooth to the touch, so it was like a having a little massage as you walked through the scattered umbrellas that were closed for the night and the dozens lounge chairs in which you had come earlier to doze off. The hotel was beautiful at day time, but at this hour it had another feeling, more so with your heart pumping fast at the expectation of what Yoongi had in mind.
A/N: I don’t know how to summarize this short piece without giving the whole story away. The idea came to me while I was reading a book and a certain passage from it just wouldn’t let me go.
Warning: teensy angst
Dean couldn’t stop staring at the flowers–bright yellow marigolds, rich purple orchids, gleaming white lilies. They were a nauseating mass of colors, but he just couldn’t look away. It might be a “second chance” thing (although in Dean’s case, he’s lost track of how many chances he’s had). Appreciate the world around you, and all that zen crap.
It’s been a while, Dear Drinkers; I’ve been kept apart from my duties here in terms of the creation of enlivening libations. No longer! I’ll be working to make sure I keep providing y'all the content that brought you here in the first place. You know, trying harder to stay true to myself. Speaking to that en, today’s honoree knows more than most about the pure and unadulterated value of knowing ones self, and striving to retain and grow that concept in a frightening, uncertain, and potentially hostile environment. Despite this risk, today’s honoree works every day to stay who they know they are.
This filly does her best to keep herself true to who she is, until the day she’s fully able to be that to everyone. Doin’ that, while trying to navigate the tricky waters of teenage romance is taxin’ at the best of times. That she’s doin’ as well as she is, given her circumstances, is impressive, and inspiring.
Chilled Wine Goblet. (This is a different kind of glass than a flute. Shorter, and wider. It’s deeper than a martini glass. Looks a lot like a tumbler on a stem.)
1 cup crushed ice
1 ½ oz White Rum
¾ oz Grand Marnier
¾ oz fresh lime juice
1 oz simple syrup (Mix 1 oz REALLY hot water with 1oz sugar, stir, let cool, and ta-da, you have Simple Syrup. It’s 1:1 Water to Sugar)
½ fresh, peeled peach
1 small, edible purple orchid.
Making a Glittershell:
Put all ingredients, except for the orchid, in the blender
This drink is quite reliant on its decorative garnish. Glittershell doesn’t have many means to express who she really is, and accessories colored a rich, deep purple have special meaning to her. I chose the drinks ingredients to match Glitter’s coat, and the orchid to accessorize. Even if it’s not… Matching.
Keep sending in suggestions as to who you’d like to see made into a drink, and Stay Thirsty, Dear Drinkers!
