30/9/15 One year ago today, I saw 1d in concert for the first time. A lot has changed since then, but yesterday we got reminded how much love the boys have for each other, and how passionate they are about one another’s side projects.

Here’s to future One Direction tours!

P.S. Kudos to the boys for making me abandon all my inhibitions and dance on my own as if I didn’t have a care in the world.

Not Your Sidekick by C.B. Lee

Welcome to Andover… where superpowers are common, but internships are complicated. Just ask high school nobody, Jessica Tran. Despite her heroic lineage, Jess is resigned to a life without superpowers and is merely looking to beef-up her college applications when she stumbles upon the perfect (paid!) internship—only it turns out to be for the town’s most heinous supervillain. On the upside, she gets to work with her longtime secret crush, Abby, who Jess thinks may have a secret of her own. Then there’s the budding attraction to her fellow intern, the mysterious “M,” who never seems to be in the same place as Abby. But what starts as a fun way to spite her superhero parents takes a sudden and dangerous turn when she uncovers a plot larger than heroes and villains altogether. [Image and summary via Goodreads]

Review: The moment I heard about Not Your Sidekick, I bought it — and waited. I waited for months (months!) until its release date, and then happily read the whole thing in one go, as one does when there’s work tomorrow but consequences and sleep debt are for other people. The moment my brain registered “superhero intern” and “that’s an Asian girl!” all those months ago, I knew I had to get the book.

In the world of Not Your Sidekick, Jessica Tran is the daughter of two small town superheroes. In an all too relatable twist, Jess struggles to figure out who she is as a powerless daughter of superpowered parents and ends up in the first paid internship she trips upon. Her internship is for the supervillains who regularly keep her parents busy with their criminal doings. Conspiracies and crushes continue from there.

The mix of superhero intrigue and adorable blossoming romance was just perfect. I shipped Jess and Abby — and, well, you’ll just have to read the rest.The adorable romance was my favorite thing about the book. A close second was the set-up and worldbuilding of a superhero populated future world not too different from our current one.

Catch this book, for sure. It’s got Asian and LGBTQIA representation, superheroes, and the struggles of a first internship. What’s not to love?

Recommendation: Buy it now! Especially if superhero YA is your thing.

May I have a moment? I have heard your name around and I was wondering if we could have brunch~

//She turns, raising a pale brow, and adjusting her long, dark gloves// 

Many people have heard my name, and I don’t have brunch with all of them. Tell me what ya want first, and then I’ll decide.

“I’m sure you’ve heard of the amalgamates, my dear?” The creatures had become quite the attraction to passersby, when they were actually out and about. “The fallen monsters who were infused with determination and…melded together? One of them do live here aswell, the dogs, Endogeny. You can meet them later, but right now, I believe they may be a bit too much.” He picked her up, not wanting her to injure herself further.

If I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die historic on a fury road!

He called me last night, out of the blue and when he said “Hello?” I felt something, it had been so long since I’d heard his voice. It took me a moment to gather my bearings but finally I said “Hello” too.

I shouldn’t have answered the call, I know, but it’s him… Him. Something about it felt so wrong yet so right, crazy right? There was silence for a minute or two, just listening to him breathe felt like home to me. “I heard,” he said. “Are you happy?“

I am and I’m not. You see, I still miss the boy I never once forgot, I loved him an awful lot but now I have another, I get on well with his mother, he cares like no other, never causes me any grief, never makes me shout and plead, I never need to beg him not to leave, he’s pretty damn loyal you see.

“Yes,” I told him. “I think so.”

He let out a sigh, already I felt the urge to cry. “That’s all I ever wanted for you, I just wanted you to be happy.”

“I know,” I said to him. “I miss you.”

There was a brief moment of silence and then he said “I miss you too, I think I probably will forever.”

It was true for me too, I had to let him know. “I’m always going to miss you,” I said. “I never wanted to let you go.”

“I know,” he told me. “But I’m glad that you did, I became someone unrecognizable and I loved you enough to know you deserved much better and I’m happy you’ve got that now.”

“Thank you.” I whispered.

“I love you,” he said. “I won’t ever call again but I love you, you have to know that and I’m sorry, sorry for the way it was at the end, sorry for everything. Be happy, okay? Have a great life, I love you.”

I never got the chance to respond, by the time I opened my mouth and thought of something to say in response he was already gone, had disconnected the call. “I love you too,” I whispered down the phone to no one at all but I couldn’t help but feel as if he had heard me anyway, even though there was no longer anyone on the other end of the phone.

                                                          I can’t get over it, really.
                        The fact that in some realities we aren’t even, you know, married.

  • Derek falling asleep in his loft at 7 am after running all night under the full moon in wolf form
  • Derek curling up in a patch of sunlight on the floor because it’s warm
  • Derek shifting back to human from in his sleep and mumbling incoherent things about beards, bunnies and big teeth
  • Dere waking up at noon covered with a blanket and a pillow half tucked under his head
  • Derek trudging groggily to the kitchen to find hot coffee on the counter and Stiles reading some online article on another supernatural creature
  • Derek kissing Stiles on the nose and sipping his coffee blissfully
  • Derek being dragged to the couch for cuddles because it’s Sunday and Stiles is lazy and they have all the time in the world
  • Derek falling asleep again with no nightmares to haunt him because this, this is home and it’s warm and it’s safe and it’s Stiles

Because I didn’t have enough feelings, I just finished watching Jacksepticeye play Undertale. As always, I cried at the end, and when he started crying, I just cryed even more. He’s such a sweetheart.
But anyways, the moment I heard him say that Sans was his favourite character… I just couldn’t help myself. So have some Sansepticeye ! ;)

Au revoir !

It started out as a feeling
Which then grew into a hope
Which then turned into a quiet thought
Which then turned into a quiet word
