Here’s a much more flexible diagram of Hogwarts/Ilvermorny house overlap than the rudimentary one I made on iPhone Notes a couple of days ago. My friend Jenn Levine expertly crafted this! It allows for some much-needed flexibility for, say, Ravenclaws in Thunderbird or, Hufflepuffs in Wampus.

I fully realize that JKR on Twitter has said there is no correlation between Hogwarts and Ilvermorny houses. I won’t argue! But, based on the initial writing, these traits still match up for me closest in this way. I’m thrilled that this idea should look so clean, and really just have my friends to thank. Jenn, and everyone else for their support on this.

hi justine!! for the touch prompt meme, how about #15 and inner wrist stroking with seungchuchu? :D

hi jenn!! :) thank u for requesting seungchuchu… i lov them… 

touch prompts // 15. other (make a suggestion inner wrist stroking) 

When Seung-gil is feeling anxious, he likes to pet his husky Jin for comfort. Jin is agreeable, low-maintenance, leans into his nuzzling palm in an instant. 

But Jin is not here. No, Jin is all the way in Seoul, while Seung-gil is stuck here, cramped into a red vinyl booth while JJ Leroy cracks wise jokes that Victor Nikiforov continues to ignore without fail. 

Victor Nikiforov has eyes and ears for only one person. 

Seung-gil can kind of relate. 

Before he knows it, he’s pulled Phichit’s hand into his lap, wrapped it into both of his own. His finger pads run over Phichit’s knuckles, dry from a full day of pre-competition practice at the ice rink. Phichit cuts off from where he’s talking excitedly at Yuuri to turn and shoot Seung-gil a grin, one thick eyebrow quirking in small surprise. 

“Can’t keep your hands off me, huh?” 

“Shut up,” he grumbles. There’s no heat behind his words, and Phichit’s grin grows wider. His other hand reaches down, too, so that their hands and fingers are a tangle of sliding joints, soft and playful. Phichit turns back and easily picks up from his conversation with Yuuri.

Phichit’s not Jin; he’s rarely agreeable, always eager to push Seung-gil’s buttons for the sake of delighting in the reactions he can pull out of him; he’s more high-maintenance than not, often insistent on taking one more selfie together, baby, come on, just one, it’ll be perfect, smile for me

But when Seung-gil’s thumb slides down to stroke at Phichit’s wrist, right there over his pulse point, Phichit immediately melts into his side. His head tucks into the front of Seung-gil’s shoulder, but he carries on talking with Yuuri like he hasn’t even noticed, like Yuuri’s not blushing with embarrassment from this display. Like it’s only natural for Seung-gil to be touching him like this. 

He is sort of like Jin, he thinks, smiling despite himself. 

Seung-gil continues busying himself with it, then, until he’s so occupied he doesn’t realize JJ’s loud voice isn’t ringing through their table anymore. 

“We’re going now, sleepy-ssi,” Phichit whispers into his ear, teasing. 

“You’re the one who was sleepy,” Seung-gil tells him pointedly. Phichit had gone increasingly soft against his side as the night wore on, more liquid than man as Seung-gil kept rubbing softly at the inside of his wrists, his forearms. Seung-gil yawns immediately after, though, then doesn’t have the energy to glare back at Phichit’s cackles.

That fucking warlock. Oh man, had he been a hard one to put down! It had taken all week. Spells were cast, spells were undone. Hex bags were planted, hex bags were burnt. It’d been physically wearing too, being thrown from one bloody wall to another. Christ, this guy just had a hard on for bodies slapping against plaster.
I groaned and rolled onto my back, not opening my eyes just yet, today could wait. I lay there for a while before stretching, and it was a bloody good stretch too; leg shaking, arm tingling, back cracking, good. I yawned wide, cracking my dry lips. I licked at it, feeling the swell of a bigger cut. I don’t remember splitting my lip. I push that thought from my mind and dig the heels of my palms into my eyes, grinding out the sleep and yawning again, but I stop, surprised, halfway through. My fingers have rested on my hair, what should be my long hair; but it’s short and spiky and …

Dear Zoe…or Kaitlyn…or Angela. To my little girl. Your dad just asked if this was a love letter. I guess it kind of is. I never got to know my mother. I have no idea what she must have thought when she carried me. So, I thought I’d write to you, so you can know how happy I am at this very moment. How much your father and I can’t wait to meet you. And, I want to make you a promise, of three things that you will have that I never did: a safe home, someone to tell you that they love you every single day, and someone to fight for you, no matter what. In other words, a family. So, there you go, baby girl. The rest, we’re going to have to figure out together. I love you. Your mom.”

It’s Time To Begin Isn’t It

Stiles/Derek | PG | ~6k | AO3
Content notes:
 Post-canon, S6a compliant, past relationship references, relationship building

Summary: When Stiles finishes his degree at George Washington, he doesn’t hesitate when it comes to enrolling in the FBI academy in Quantico. Eager to start his career in the agency, even more to put his past behind him, he doesn’t put much thought to the memories that he might find in the area. But then he stumbles upon something that brings back something he thought he left far behind… in ways he isn’t expecting.

A/N: My apologies to the fandomwritingchallenge team for the delay in posting (and for going over the word limit). This managed to grow legs under me and turned into something bigger than I expected. And a massive thank you to Jenn for all the cheerleading when I was lost, and for the Beta read! 

It’s a few weeks before he’s allowed off base. Half of his class is on the way out before Stiles even gets back to his room on the first afternoon that they get leave. His roommate, Evan, has tossed all his things on the bed, and Stiles only finds an empty room. Another classmate – Sara, from the room across the hall – asked him earlier in the day if he was driving out, and if she could tag along. But when Stiles glances towards her door, he spots her leaving. She gives him a quick wave and then he hears someone call out to her to hurry up.

Once he’s put away his notes and books, he checks his watch. He’s not meant to be calling his dad or Lydia, and Scott’s working late at Deaton’s. The cut-off for being out is midnight, but he knows he’ll have to be up at five for training again, so he wonders if it’s worth it.

He does miss driving Roscoe, though, so he heads down to the parking lot, figuring he’ll at least make sure the Jeep will start. When he got to DC four years ago, he was amazed that they made it, but somehow the tape and rust held Roscoe together. He’s even more amazed now that it’s still in driving condition after years of driving around Washington and even making summer trips back home.

When he has the engine running – after a sigh of relief that there is enough gas in the tank to get to the nearest station – Stiles decides to at least go for a short drive. He barely got to see anything but the dorms and the road to them when he arrived, as once he was there, he wasn’t allowed out for anything but classes and training.

The place is small. Smaller than Beacon Hills. Definitely smaller than Washington. It gives him comfort, somehow, knowing that he’s somewhere that seemingly peaceful, a place that he hopes is unlikely to attract the special kind of hell. Only the regular human kind, which he’s here to learn how to defeat. It’s quiet, too, even though he can see people around, some in uniforms, others in civilian clothes. He takes note of places as he drives – post office, pizza place, stores, mechanic – just so he’s a little less lost the next time. They’ll be allowed to be out for the weekend unless there’s a special training session, and Stiles plans to go explore a little more. He gets back to base early that first night.

Huge thanks to Jenn and Ty, the creative team behind the gorgeous @therisingsand for watching my table, letting me crash in Toronto and hang out with their cats. Don’t know if i could even afford to stay in Toronto without these guys!

anonymous asked:

What do you think are the flaws of each of the lads? Talk about them and how you feel about them! Cheers, love! (Also I'm seeing Paul tomorrow! Eeeek!)

i hope you have fun seeing paul!

this is a really strange question lol and i dont want to get into anything too deep so ill just keep it brief.

johns flaw would be his jealousy, ex: being selfish with his girlfriends and super competitive with his peers. paul’s flaw would be his insecurity, ex: not taking criticism well and trying too hard. george;s flaw would be his stubbornness, ex: holding grudges and being bitter. and ringo’s flaw would be his gluttony, ex: partying too much and his substance abuse.

idk they all have a lot of flaws lmao but they are still good boys


Okay, so @thatzestysoul I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say we probably weren’t linked up for this idea lol. I’m not sure why I took this route, but I did. I still hope you like this, my dear!! PS. It ends weird but…*hides*

If you’re still accepting the drabble game, I hope this is okay! Mino (23A, 49B, 3C) I kinda have a scene in my head for it hahaha but your writing will do it justice! Thank you Jenn - your non Anon <3

You hadn’t spoken to him since you’d left the house to the airport. The silence filled up now by the bustling bodies brushing past you and into your personal space. Their unaware nature of how uncomfortable you were at their close proximity making you tense up every time they stepped to close. You were too stubborn to move closer to the comfort of the only body you knew, but refused.

But he knew.

He always knew when something wasn’t right. When you were upset. Just like now when he knew your claustrophobia of too many bodies was getting to you. Just like he knew you were mad as hell he was eating your cupcake.

He was taking a giant bite when his arm stretched out to pull you closer to him. The tension in your shoulders easing considerably. He shrugged his arm up to keep his bag from sliding off of his shoulder. Minho’s hand reaching out to take yours, but you stole it away and tucked it under the safety of your arms as you crossed them over your chest.

His eyebrows arched as he looked down at you. A question forming in his eyes but unable to say it around the load of frosting and fluffy cake in his mouth.

“What’s wrong? You haven’t talked to me since we left the house.”

“Oh, like you don’t know.”

“Yah, how am I going to know if you don’t tell me?”

You looked away from him. The two of you coming to a stop just outside the terminal.

“It’s because I’m leaving, right?”


“That’s why you’re so upset. I don’t know why I didn’t think about it earlier.”

Minho was still talking, while licking the remaining chocolate fudge frosting off of his fingers. Your eyes narrowing on the movements while he just continued to ramble.

“You ate my cupcake, Minho!”

Your outburst cut him off midsentence and mid-lick. His tongue stopping its ascent up his fingers until he dropped his hand completely at his side, wiping his hand on his pants.

“I believe you mean our cupcake.”


“We live together, Y/N. What’s yours is mine and what’s mine is-AH!”

Minho tried to take a step back, his laughter turning manic, as your fingers pinched down a little harder on his nipples. Your hands started to twist, making his hands fly to your wrists, but he didn’t dare try and pry you off. He knew if he did you would just squeeze down harder.

“What was that, Minho-sshi? Whose cupcake was it?”

“It’s yours, it’s yours!”

He shouted each word through clenched laughter. His quick words of defeat making you release your hold on his nipples. His hands immediately left your wrists to rub the stinging buds. His lips pouting as he eyed your now smiling face.

“I can’t believe you pinched my nipples.”

“I think what you meant to say was our nipples.”

Minho’s sent you a sour look, his tongue running along his cheek, before he opened his arms wide. His hands ushering you to hurry up and hug him before he moved to leave. You were still jaded about the cupcake, but you couldn’t deny yourself the last chance you had to touch him. The next three weeks were going to be torturous without his presence and constant mess he left behind in the kitchen.

You stepped inside and he instantly wrapped one arm around you. His face buried in the top of your hair as he kissed your temple repeatedly.

“I’ll miss you, jagiyah,” he muttered against your hair.

Your lips parted to tell him the same, until you felt his hand sliding up the front of your shirt. Just before his fingers moved to pinch you back you warned: “Yah, don’t even think about it, Minho-sshi.”

Bookish Question Photo Challenge: Do you use bookmarks a lot?

I was tagged by the lovely @busybooklr. Thanks!

Umm…yes, yes I do. I seem to be collecting them! My mug that I keep them in is getting full. I’m also known to use receipts or anything flat to use as a bookmark. I have a time or two use my phone and forget I did when I can’t find it! Oops.

inputanimeoutput  asked:

Hey, Charles! Just curious, but what are your thoughts about Amazon getting into the anime streaming business with their Anime Strike channel?

Thanks for the question, Jenn! I’m a big Amazon fan, but I’m not a fan of Anime Strike, and here’s why: Amazon is doing what a it seems a lot of stores are doing, which is taking things away from their premium content subscribers. Why on earth would I pay another $5 a month for a handful of shows when I already pay so much money per year for Amazon Prime? I have access to all this streaming content, but anime for some reason comes at a premium? And it’s that - it’s the principle of the issue (that and not wanting another automated payment that I’ll lose track of) more than the cost.

It’s annoying also because Amazon is picking up some of the most anticipated series each season and adding them to some strong series they own the rights to. I paid for one month of it last season when I thought a couple of their shows would turn out really good, and dropped it when I lost interest in them. Though it’s not true, I do feel like some of the best content is being barred from me unless I start streaming illegally, and that kinda stinks.
