Advice For The Signs

LIBRA: Occasionally you have to fake it until you make it. I know that this is a cliche you’ve heard many times before, but have you ever actually tried it? Cliches don’t become ‘cliche’ unless a lot of people believe in what they’re implying. Feel free to test this, even if it’s just for a day or two. Pretend that you’re in the right career, pretend that you haven’t been sad at all for the last few weeks, pretend that you’re powerful and comfortable and know exactly who you are. Sometimes a little confidence, even if it begins as a front, is the final piece to the puzzle.

SCORPIO: You’ve had chains wrapped around your ankles for so long now that you hardly ever notice their weight anymore. Don’t get me wrong, it’s wonderful that you’ve found a way to cope with the things that try to drag you down. But it seems like you’ve become so complacent in this state of being that you’ve given up on escape. Like you’re an audience member to your own existence. But you aren’t, even though life comes at you so viciously sometimes. You are in charge of your body, and in charge of what you do with it. Now use it.

anonymous asked:

So I have an aroace character. Another character falls in love with her and she doesn't with him. She never will. Now, she does come to love him. Just not romantically. (Spoilers!) He's killed at the end of the first book. This is when she finally comes to terms with loving him, and she basically cries, "I love you" to his dying body. The thing is, how can I communicate to my audience that she never had romantic feelings for him? I don't want people to think her being aro is just for angst

Thanks so much for your question, love!  That sounds like a great relationship, and one I’d personally love to see published :)

So we’ve talked a lot about romantic love on the blog – in fact, we made a recent post on the distinction of romantic love.  But we haven’t talked about how to specify platonic love over romantic, and that can be very important in modern fiction – especially in today’s fandom culture, where fans assume every two characters that breathe in a mutual direction are romantically attracted to one another.  Strong F/M friendships (and aromantic characters!) are desperately needed in modern fiction!

I have some advice for you that might help :)  Here we go…


How to Keep Fictional Friendships Platonic

  • Avoid admiration of each other’s physicality – especially involving sexualized body parts.  Friends may notice attractive qualities in each other, no matter their gender or sexuality, but these thoughts can easily confuse readers.  When observing a scene through your aromantic character’s POV, avoid dwelling on the other character’s eyes, lips, scent, muscles/curves, or any details that might be considered sexual (e.g. how their clothing hugs their body).  Some writers don’t think about how their descriptions color their main character’s image/emotions – and that’s how we get female characters who notice each other’s glistening hair and “plump breasts” but are never ever lesbians because god forbid.
  • Show your character’s discomfort at romantic advances.  Just because your character grows to platonically love their friend does not mean they’ll become more comfortable with romantic displays.  Longing looks, moments of silence or one-way sexual tension, small displays of affection like hugs that last too long or gifts (with clear romantic intention) – if the romantic love isn’t returned, those moments will be awkward, and maybe even guilt-inducing.  It’s hard when someone wants you to feel something you don’t, especially if you’re close to them.  Those moments will be there.
  • Allow your character to treat their friend with love, without expectation of anything in return.  A clear indication of love is when a person is kind/considerate or goes out of their way to help their friend – but that moment afterward, when they watch their friend smile and want a hug or a kiss or some kind of reward, turns it romantic.  Friends help each other because they care about each other; they’ve already reached the status of friendship, and they just want to maintain it.  But when you love someone, you’re pursuing something – you’re expecting advancement and change.  When your character is kind to their friend, let them do it just because that’s what friends do.  Skip the long silent moment of anticipation afterwards.
  • Keep them on a level playing field.  The easiest way to make a relationship seem instantly romantic is to typecast the characters involved – especially if they’re F/M.  Putting the woman in the “woman role” – portraying her softness, her patience, her need for protection – and putting the man in the “man role” – protective, strong, unemotional – causes readers to associate them with the stereotypical romance story.  Instead (and you should do this with romance anyway), portray them as equals and separates.  They can do things without each other.  They have thoughts about people other than each other.  They aren’t each other’s puzzle piece and the universe isn’t pushing them together.  And they aren’t Man and Woman – they’re Person and Person.  Playing up their genders (and gender roles) will not serve you in any way.
  • Let them express that they have no romantic feelings for their friend.  Maybe they say it in dialogue; maybe they say it in their head.  Maybe they show it in how they describe the other person (”tall, wears cool jackets, has a great sense of humor, awful driver,” and other non-romantic but still affectionate details).  Maybe they have a romantic encounter with that character, just to feel it out, and decide they just don’t feel anything at all, even if they wanted to.  Maybe the character outright states they’re aromantic, and that solves the puzzle for readers right there (although you may have to say it a few times).  Phrases like: “I can’t love you the way you want.”  “I feel like I’m a disappointment to you.” “I care about you a lot.” “You’re my best friend.”  As angsty or as non-angsty as you want, any phrase a whiteguy would refer to as “friendzoning” can be your ticket to an indirect expression of platonic love.
  • And specific for you, anon: when the friend dies, make sure your character only has platonic memories of them, just to make their meaning behind “I love you” clear.  Have them remember the bad jokes, or the high-fives, or the deep conversations – basically anything that isn’t touchy-feely or a stereotypical couple-thing.  Once your character drops the ILY, readers might get confused.  Make sure they leave the book with a clear image of what you intended for your characters.

I know that got long, but I hope these ideas help you!  I applaud you for wanting to make your aromantic representation clear, and I hope this goes well for you.  If you have any more questions, the inbox opens on Nov. 1st :)

Thanks again, and good luck!

hunk headcanons bc i’m in a Mood(tm)
  • he is ur local pansexual 
  • he’s smart asf obviously but his best subject is chemistry!!! he loved doing the experiments in class bc he is a hands on learner (which is why he likes to build/work with machines 0:) and seeing the reactions and processes play out in front of him was always rlly cool!!! he misses doing chem labs 
    • also lance was his lab partner and sometimes they would fuck up experiments and make a mess but it was funny and they just got to talk about “source of errors” in their reports more extensively so it was fine lmfao 
  • he loves so easily and openly that’s not a headcanon that’s canon and i just wanted to point that out bc i love him wtf 
  • but he also doesn’t trust 100% easily!!!! he’s not like keith level wary but u do have to earn his trust. he is v good at sniffing out dishonesty & one of the traits he values the most in people is honesty and trustworthiness 
  • this is a lil contradictory bc we know canonically he is not the best at keeping secrets and can be a bit of a snoop, but he never does it with malice and is trying to work on it!!!
  • but ya he sucks at keeping secrets be careful what u tell a Hunk. it’s mostly cute ….if it’s something rlly serious and heavy tho, you can trust him not to tell a soul 
    • the secrets he kinda spills are more like: ‘one time in the 5th grade lance had a crush on this girl but he came to school sick and threw up on her shoes when he was trying to confess his feelings and i laughed and then threw up too’ ‘HUNK!’ 
  • similar to lance, he likes to be lighthearted and make jokes to help ppl feel better!!! this is also canon okay but i just. i love …….remember how he kinda is real casual about keith being galra and makes a few lil jokes to make him feel more at ease. ya, that’s our boy…..,,he !!!!!!
  • best hugs. 100000% a hunk hug can heal all wounds who needs a fucking healing pod am i right 
  • also the biggest platonic cuddler. he and lance would cuddle all the time back at the garrison (u can also take this as hance too bc Pure ™ but regardless he will cuddle everyone) like??? ur feeling sad ??? here come sleep in hunk’s room he will hold u !!!
  • shiro suggested he start journaling to help with his anxiety and it’s actually been rlly helpful!! he has also been opening up more to the team about his issues with anxiety and they have been v supportive!! his friends are always there for him when he has an anxiety attack. keith and lance esp know how to calm him down bc they are the closest to him. lots of physical reassurance and hey when did this turn into klunk idk but good stuff 
  • he used to be a tutor back at the garrison and was rlly helpful !!! hunk is a good teacher 
  • he is a heavy sleeper.  will sleep through an earthquake probably confirmed 
  • there are so many more but my brain is now fried so this is all for now but expect a part 2 sometime 
Fuel to Fire (6) Tattoo Virginity

Stucky x reader

Notes: fluff, tattooing, some angst, smut (m/m and m/m/f), anxiety, depression, mentions of parental negligence, swearing.

Summary: Living their dream, Bucky and Steve run their tattoo shop ‘American Ink’ together, happily married for several years and business is going well. When a girl walks into their shop and inevitably into their lives right after they’ve received some exciting news, they have no idea how their lives are about to change with some harmless but straight-forward flirting.

Fuel to Fire (intro) Fuel to fire (2) Fuel to Fire (3) Fuel to Fire (4) Fuel to Fire (5)

A/N: This is not, I repeat: NOT, how a getting a tattoo is supposed to go. Freaking bacterial hazard over here. If that wasn’t clear enough: SMUT while getting tattooed. 

Major credits to @thevillainway for making my next tattoo wish come to life, and giving everyone an image to help with visualising what tattoo is being done in this story! 


“Are you excited?” Clint’s bouncing up and down, excited enough for both Y/N and himself, as they make their way over to American Ink.

“Sure, but settle down will you? You’re like a five year old on a sugar high, makin’ me nervous.” Y/N grumbles, no heat in the jab though it manages to settle Clint down a little.

“You’re starting to sound like your boyfriends, cuddles.” Clint smirks, a knowing, devious little thing, and Y/N manages to look away before he’s able to catch the blush on her cheeks.

He knows it’s there, though, he’s known her too long not to.

“Shut up.” she mumbles, but doesn’t deny a thing.

Clint makes an ooh-ing sound and snickers the last few blocks to the shop, and keeps on giggling like an idiot when they walk in.

“Hey, Darce.” Y/N smiles and knows to open her arms for the impending hug now, though she’s still surprised with the force of it when the girl envelopes her into her arms.

BTS Reaction | Request - You debuting but rooming with a guy.

Hope it’s what you wanted aaa

Kim Seokjin - 

So happy you were debuting, not so happy that you are sharing a room with a guy though. Hearing you tell him that you were going to debut as a drummer he was so excited for you screaming telling everyone about it AAAAAaaaa my baby is debuting. But when he heard that you were the only girl and you were going to have to room with a guy, he was furious not understanding why your company would allow that and would try to get you to stay at a different dorm alone or at his dorms.

“I’m proud of you but you are not staying in that dorm”

He was happy you debuted and he couldn’t care less about you rooming with a guy. He knew that you love him and he returns them feelings. He’s not worried that you’ll cheat because you wouldn’t be with him if you were feeling that way anyway. But he did have a long chat to the guy you were rooming with, making the guy understand that you were his and not to be touched. 

“I’m happy for you baby, but just remember that you’re mine”

So excited because he’s heard you on the drums and you’re amazing he watches your debut stage proudly screaming more like it. When he finds out you are rooming with a guy his confidence in himself deflates, he starts overthinking and panicking. Doesn’t really speak up because he’s scared you’ll leave him. When you reassure him that you love him and you’ll never leave him he calms down a little bit and pulls you into a hug.

Loves the fact that you play drums and is happy for you. Gave you tips before your debut, came to your debut stage and screamed for you, supported you. Finding out about the fact that you were rooming with a guy he was not happy. He talks to your managers asking for your own room, voiced his concerns to you, even went as far as moving your stuff out of your room. Reassuring him that you love him and only him calms him down a little bit but he still tries to change you room.

“Nope, you’re not rooming with a guy, I don’t care”

So proud of you for debuting smiled so wide as he watched you on your debut stage. Being informed of the fact that you’re staying with a guy he wasn’t happy, he was very angry at the managers for such poor living plans. Tried to change rooms, started to think that he wasn’t good enough for you, very self conscious over it. Telling him that you love him and lots of cuddles and kisses helped a lot.

Buzzed for your debut, loves the way you play drums so effortlessly. When he found out you were rooming with a guy he wasn’t happy but from the way you are around him showed him how much you love him. So he wasn’t as concerned as most people would be. He’s happy for you and doesn’t want to ruin that by making you feel bad about the living conditions you’re in. As long as you show your love for him he’s not concerned.

Concerned bun, knows how hard the idol life is but is happy for you. Doesn’t say anything at first about you rooming with a guy because he’s too shy to. But when you do bring it up he gets angry and flips out a bit about it. He understands that you can’t help it but it doesn’t stop him trying to change it, when changing the rooms didn’t work he had a nice long chat with the guy you’re rooming with. You’re his nobody else’s.

anonymous asked:

What would you think the Crows would be like in a modern au?

so kaz would be that ride or die kid who would help you bury a body without asking any questions. one word texter. always leavin ppl on read. super ominous, all the time. has a snapchat but he never snaps anyone. still uses a cane, and gets suspended for beating other students with it. still as over-dramatic as ever. probably calls himself dirtyhands bc it gives him street cred. “hey kaz why do you drink black coffee it tastes awful” “suffering is like anything else. live with it long enough and you learn to love the taste”

if this were a cheesy teen movie, inej would be the basic love interest who is a girl but!!! like sPOrT???!!! unheard of??? to the boy population at the school. most boys think she is just one of the guyz but one local boy sees something ~*more*~ and there’s a slowmo scene in the hall where they make eye contact but then she brushes off the boy to go skateboard or something equally better than love (she gets w the guy in the end but thats lame skateboarding is more fun)

jesper is meme-central alright like he just doesn’t stop and kaz keeps threatening him but jesper just mocks it back to him w his hands on his hips. would rather send an unrelated meme than an answer to a serious question. he dresses like macklemore. literally, he buys all his clothes at a thrift store. and he’d pop tags. kids can’t really gamble in the modern world, and there’s not a lot of epic gun showdowns, so he’s gotta get his adrenaline from somewhere. wylan is proud of him for getting through one shopping trip without stealing anything, but as soon as they’re outside, jesper yells yeet! and throws wylan a bright blue fedora he’d shoved in his backpack. 

wylan is already a pretty modern kid? rich white kid who plays the flute?? runs away from his parents. he probably let anyone copy off his homework at first but after getting in with kaz, some of dirtyhand’s cruelty rubbed off on him and sure he’ll let you copy off him still, but what is he going to get in return? his style of humor is gay jokes. anything he doesn’t want to do? homophobic. someone blocking his way? “move, i’m gay.” sometimes does prank videos but only on kuwei.

nina. food blogger. instagram famous. probably does youtube makeup tutorials, and “what i ate today” recipe videos. fights for a ton of different causes and uses her platforms to bring attention to gofundmes and campaigns to donate to. always super busy hanging out with a hundred different people. sometimes she takes off days for herself and gives herself a lil spa day. and somedays she just stays home to watch romance movies and try creative popcorn combinations. (popcorn and pickles or popcorn topped w syrup?? posts a poll on twitter. pickles win but she strongly disagrees)

matthias pretends to hate his name in nina’s phone (brooding yellow 🌷) but he really loves it. pretends to hate nina’s cheesy romance movies but he really loves it. just really loves nina. he’s probably big into sports, any sport, all sport, mostly hockey. has a really quiet social media scene; probably just posts videos of his husky talking. nina is always trying to explain memes to him and he only starts understanding how to use it after it’s died. probably wears socks and nike slides.

kuwei is a certified nerd™. will stay up until 3am watching bad memes, illuminati theories, and bill nye. actually got along rly well with wylan when they were kids. only has a ginger ale at raging parties bc one time kaz thought it would be funny to get kuwei sloppy drunk and he’s never drunk alcohol or trusted kaz since (kaz filmed him trying to make out with jesper and sent it to wylan and so began the rivalry) tries a lil too hard to be in with the dregs. he doesn’t wait for anyone’s permission to do anything. always runs out of data on his phone. has at least 5k photos on his phone, at all times. dabs unironically

dating seokjin [realistically]

Originally posted by blackandwhitebangtan

important disclaimer: this part of the dating series is just like the others, based on my opinion and my imagination of “realistic” only. I don’t know kim seokjin personally, so you’ll maybe see points written that you don’t agree with. If you’re not open to stuff like this, I would recommend you to not read it.  

links to other pieces;
jeongguk | jimin | taehyung | yoongi | hoseok | namjoon

• seokjin is actually the one in bts that I can imagine being in a relationship the most out of all members

• that’s because of his age of course, but also because he is probably thinking of taking the step to building his own family as well from time to time

• I feel like jin actually worries sometimes if he will ever find someone he loves

• because he doesn’t get any younger and bangtan is taking a huge part of his life which makes it really hard for him to take his time to get to know someone

• I feel like seokjin likes a matured girl who thinks good of others and has good manners

• the cute type of woman

• she wouldn‘t have to be sporty, but have a healthy lifestyle

• I also feel like jin is the one who doesn’t get that impressed by the appearance but he wants to fall in love with the qualities of her & the personality  

• wouldn‘t care if she would earn less then him or wouldn’t be worried that she could be using him for money

• jin is a real gentlemen, honestly

• he is the one that your parents would be happy If you would take him home for the first time

• he’s utterly handsome, polite, tall, wealthy, kind, funny, good at cooking and has also a good body structure

• he’s someone who could be able to offer you anything that you need

• and I feel that since he doesn’t really want something other than happiness, he would be content with just having you by his side

• so if jin finally starts liking you, he would think about you a lot

• I feel like he wouldn’t talk about it first, but think about it on his own

• he would probably try to figure you out a little bit more and try to ease the tension with casual conversations

• and I can also imagine so well that he sometimes flirts with you but with that smile he has when he is about to laugh

• or you know how he acts like when he really tries to flirt seriously and he just looks so confident while doing it? yes expect that too

• based on your reactions he would probably continue doing that a lot during the pre dating

• so I feel like if he wants to tell the members about it, they would be really happy for him

• because of the fact that he is the oldest hyung and everyone knows how much he deserves to finally experience the feeling of being in love

• and the person he would tell first in bangtan is probably namjoon or hoseok

• so once you both start becoming close he would constantly check up on you and call you whenever he can

• you just know that feeling of really liking someone ? Like how you always think about them and want to call them ? all butterflies and stuff? even though this sounds cheesy I can imagine him having those feelings all the time when he is about to fall in love

• dates would probably be at a restaurant or at his or your place

• the reason why I think that with seokjin it would be okay to spend the first days at each other’s places is simply because he is more mature now

• and I think that since he’s older the steps you both would take in the relationship would be a bit faster

• but I feel like nothing would happen other than talking and lots of cooking on the first dates

• jin would open up to you quiet fast

• he doesn’t seem to be that kind of person who has a lot of secrets and keeps things to himself

• he would hug you so often
• I can see so much skinship actually

• of course not in public, he looks like a more private guy when it comes to his love for you

• if you give him the satisfaction of telling him he looks handsome or has nice shoulders he would probably get really flustered but cocky

• and cocky jin is a concept
• “yah, of course I am.”
• “you can always keep looking at me since you only have me.”

• just a really playful relationship

• but other than that, jin only says those things because he knows you’ll understand they’re jokes

• since we’re talking about jokes
• he’ll probably tell you a lot of those
• especially if you’re sad or having a bad day

• (unpopular opinion but am I the only one who thinks jin maybe came up with the dad jokes because he wanted to stand out/ have people realize he’s actually funny? because I feel like sometimes he feels unwanted?? I think about this sometimes)

• either way , he is so funny and has such a nice sense of humor
• and your relationship will most likely be filled with lots of laughter

• when it comes to fights though I feel like it would take him a lot to raise his voice against you

• he seems to have a really calm nature
• so I see him as someone who doesn’t really start fights easily

• and if you do have fights they are pretty small
• but there can also be days where he is really in a bad mood and just generally upset

• unlike yoongi or jungkook, I feel like seokjin is the type of man who would turn to his partner first if he’s upset

• so expect him to tell you a lot of things once he sees you
• he would buy you so much stuff

• but not only on special days like Valentine’s day or anniversaries

• nono he’s the type of man who will buy you a gift whenever he feels like it

• since we’re talking about Valentine’s Day and anniversaries ; he would take these days so seriously

• honestly I feel like out of all bangtan members he would think about what to get you as a present the most

• remember how the members said that jin is the most romantic among all of them?

• so many kisses; hugs; gifts; phone calls

• what I really have to say as well; you know how couples usually put a lot of effort in the relationship only at the beginning and after a while they just stop caring as much as they used to? like caring about what they should wear, what they should get as gifts, what they should do on a special date,

• yeah, I feel like seokjin would never stop caring

• (sometimes I imagine jin finally falling in love with someone and honestly my heart gets so warm because I want it to happen so badly, because I believe so much in what I write down rn)

• being loved by seokjin must feel so good; in every way
• the sex would probably happen faster than the other members as well

• jin in an adult so that explains a lot; I also feel like he has a least a little bit more experience than a few of the other members

• so sex with jin would be really good
• and I feel like it would last long too

• I really can’t tell what he could be into; so I’ll just leave that aside for peoples imaginations

• but I’ll just say that in my opinion he just doesn’t seem like the really dominant type who would want you to call him petnames and choke you to death (I’m sorry but I really see jin as a sensible person don’t get offended)

• other than that, just imagine his lips;
• his plump lips on your body,
• everywhere he can reach

• lots of cuddling! after sex

• jin could be such a good husband
• he wants kids too; so he could be a great father as well

• when he meets your parents, which would also happen quiet fast, they would love him so much
• because he really knows what to say to people so they would like him

• when you meet his parents they would probably already love you simply because of the fact that their son is always talking about how happy you make him

• and I feel like after he falls in love with you he would really not give up on you so easily

• no matter how many burdens they will be;
• no matter how hard it might be for him it would take him a lot to really end things with you

• and that’s simply because I believe that if kim seokjin falls in love;
• he falls hard

To explain the reasoning behind this literal essay, I was speaking in front my speech class about all the things I admire about Harry and why I look up him because we had to talk in front of the class for five minutes about who we look up to and why blah blah blah and as I finished explaining why I looked up to the fabulous Harry Styles, half the class thought it was a joke because he was in a boyband and got his start on a tv show so he didn’t have to actually work for anything like other artists who worked from the ground up. I had to legitimately bite my tongue to not get defensive and start an argument because I so strongly admire the amount of work Harry puts into his career and into himself. So I instead wrote it all down to soothe my anger and this is a long essay about how hard Harry works, why I love him, why he loves us, why his album is absolutely beautiful (this is me preparing you for a short analysis on the album), why harry deserves everything in the world, and why all the people who “hate” him are really missing out on a good idol to look up to.

First, I’m going to talk about his general personality which we all adore and are naturally very jealous of. If you’re not jealous, you’re lying to yourself. Harry is just naturally very charming and charismatic and motivated and kind and genuine and weird and dorky and sensitive and humble and determined and introverted/extroverted (that is an essay for another day unless you want it now) and uncommunicative and secretive and habitual and he’s just overall an extremely complex person.

Want You More Than A by TheCellarDoor:

Summary: Falling in love with your step-brother’s best friend is a disaster enough. When he happens to be the boy everyone loves and you’re a nerd who wears sweater vests and cries during rom-coms, it takes it to a whole new level.

Of All That Surrounds Us by zanyemajik:

Summary: “Then just–fuck, Harry, tell him you’ve been in love with him since the moment he spilled orange juice all over your N64 and just work from there.”

Harry snorts a laugh despite himself. “Yeah.”

“I’m serious, mate,” Niall insists. “Every time something happens, you act like you and Louis–like you two haven’t basically been an item for ten fucking years. It’s always been like this Harry, you’ve just.” Niall glances at the ceiling and shakes his head, trying his best to soften his tone. “You’re too much of a fucking idiot to notice.”

Or, the high school AU where all five boys grow up in New York City, Harry’s fingers won’t stop shaking, Louis has an affinity for cupcakes and alcohol, Zayn thinks he knows what he’s doing, Liam actually knows what he’s doing, the contestants won’t stop humping Drew Carey, and everything is really all about Niall.

Hate Me To The Moon by harrystylesandstuff:

Summary: The last thing Harry wanted was to spend his entire summer stuck with his dad’s new fiancée and her kids. He wants no more when he learns she’s a very religious dictator, raising a sixteen year old nun and a clean cut potential priest ass kisser.

Everything takes a slightly different turn, however, when Harry finds out his future step-brother is actually the rude stranger he caught sucking off a guy in a pub, far from the reserved Christian his mom thinks he is…

AU where Harry is a sexy nerd, Louis is a great actor, and they both pretend to hate each other’s guts to convince themselves they’re not feeling things future step-brothers shouldn’t feel…

little wings on my shoes by juliusschmidt:

Summary: ou have C Lunch?” Louis asks, peering over at Harry’s work. The problem Harry’s just finished is printed neatly, the correct answer circled. Harry’s finger marks the next problem in his book as he copies it onto the page. It doesn’t look like he’s stealing the answers out of the back. Nice.

He’s dimpled and smart.

And probably gay.

This Offer Stands Forever by Tomlinsontoes:

Summary: Harry is who high school kids would define as a nerd, he loved going to class and studying, he was just good at school work and saw nothing wrong with liking it. He signs up to tutor students at the middle school down the road where he ends up helping Lottie Tomlinson, younger sister to the ever popular and gorgeous Louis Tomlinson who is also a senior and in a few classes of Harry’s.

Mutual - We’ve Discussed It by ariadne_odair:

Summary: It’s like he’s in his own world, the noises of people screaming and laughing and bitching drifting into nothing. It’s just him, and this boy, and warm, warm skin under his palms.

Harry looks up, and he sees blue, blue eyes, and caramel coloured hair, and pink lips. There’s a beat of silence, and all Harry can do is stare, and his heart is beating wildly, his face warm and -

Supposed to Be by kikikryslee:

Summary: “I’m making a movie for a film competition, and I want you to be in it,” Harry told Louis. “I think you would be a great leading actor in it.”

“Why?”

“Because it’s you. I mean, who wouldn’t want to know all about the amazing Louis Tomlinson? It would be a great movie.”

“You don’t have some weird crush or, like, secret obsession with me, do you?” Louis asked.

Harry bit his tongue so he didn’t say “Ew, I have standards.” He didn’t think that would go over well.

Of course, that was assuming Louis understood what that meant.

Or, the Geek Charming AU where Harry’s a film geek, Louis’ a popular jock, and they both need each other to get what they want.

Your puppy’s barks were so loud that they could be heard throughout the house. But of course, you were the only one actually awake to hear it. It’s not like it had woken you up or anything, you had stayed up late to try and finish your history project which was due in tomorrow morning. You had finished it at around 2am and when you had finally slid into bed your puppy had begun barking.

You reluctantly dragged yourself out of your warm bed and downstairs to the cold hallway. You opened the kitchen door and your puppy ran out, barking even more. When your Dad had brought home the golden retriever pup you were overjoyed. Now the puppy, which you had ironically named Angel, was stealing, even more, hours off your already short sleeping schedule. Angel enjoyed early morning walks and the only one around to walk her was you.

Attaching the lead to Angel’s collar, you slipped on your shoes that were by the door, grabbed your keys and walked out of your house with Angel. You were instantly hit by the cold air of New York. Using your phone as a torch, you made your way to the park that was only five minutes away. Whilst most people would be too afraid to walk through a park at almost three in the morning, you were calmed by the fact that a certain superhero would save you if you were to meet any trouble.

All your friends (other than Michelle) called you crazy for believing that Spider-man would always be there to help. They told you that he can’t save everyone in New York and there was only a 50% chance he would appear if you were in trouble. But that didn’t stop you believing. In a city of peril, Spider-man brought hope to many, including you. You had watched videos, read articles and saved many pictures of him. As well as admiration for the web-slinging hero, you were curious to see who was under the mask. How did he get those powers? How old is he? What’s his name? Did you know him?

Angel suddenly tugged hard on the leash, indicating you had reached the park. You pushed the gate open, Angel panting excitedly. You reached down and unclasped the leash, setting her free. Thankfully Angel was trained and would come back to you when you called. Whilst she ran around the park, you began a leisurely stroll along the main path. The park was empty but not silent. Despite it being three am, New York City was still thriving. If you looked right you could see towards the city centre, which was a beacon of light for the rest of the city. To your left were the sounds of the busy subway filled with late-night workers and party goers. And when you looked up you had the best view. The night sky was at its best. Each star shined brightly, creating shapes that could be interpreted in whatever way you liked. The moon provided a gentle light in the areas of the park not lit up by a street light. The whole atmosphere of early morning New York was exhilarating.

You saw a bench and settled down on it. You looked around to see if Angel was around anywhere. You couldn’t hear any barks or rustling from her running around. Usually, this wouldn’t bother you as Angel would usually come bounding out of a bush or let out a bark or two. But five minutes had passed since you last heard anything from her or had seen her and you began to get worried. You flash your phone’s torch around, to see if she was anywhere nearby but found nothing.

“Angel!” You called out, getting up from the bench.

You heard no barking and saw no sign of moving. The last time you saw her was in the small forest area in front of the bench. You didn’t exactly want to venture between the large trees alone at three am, but you had no other choice.


 Meanwhile, Peter Parker swung from tree to tree, clad in spandex. He had spent the night busting some bank robbers and was celebrating in a Tarzan-like fashion. He enjoyed coming to the park at night. It didn’t feel scary at all to be in this park alone. He had the night sky as his company, the moon being his spotlight whilst the stars were his audience. Peter was able to practice new tricks in the empty park without the risk of being spotted without his mask on. Or so he thought.

Peter instantly stopped swinging when he heard the familiar voice. He managed to land quietly despite his surprised state. As he pulled his mask over his head, he heard the voice again, clearer this time. Peter knew he had recognised the voice. But where was it coming from?

(Y/N) stepped out into the dimly lit forest clearing. Peter could feel his cheeks reddening under the mask. What was she doing here?

“Angel? Come on Angel!” She exclaimed a look of stress on her face.

The faint glow of the streetlight nearby shone on (Y/N). Peter noted how the light only accentuated her beautiful face. He couldn’t help but stare at his crush.

(Y/N) (L/N) had been the girl on Peter’s mind for nearly three months now. When Liz Allen had left Midtown High, Peter was heartbroken. He had finally got the girl he wanted so badly, only to lose her almost instantly. It was basically his fault as well- he was the one who caused her Dad to be sent to jail. But it was the right thing to do. He couldn’t endanger the lives of millions over a crush. Peter had soon realised that his crush on Liz wasn’t really what it seemed at the time anyway. Liz was beautiful and so nice but he wasn’t in love with her. It was more admiration. (Y/N), on the other hand, was so, so different. When Michelle had invited her to join the decathlon team he knew she was the one. The one that would please him, the one that would make him happy and the one that he would love. When she introduced herself, he couldn’t help but repeat her name to himself under his breath. He basked in her beauty then and still did now.

“Where are you, Angel?” (Y/N) said to herself.

Peter decided to step out from the trees and find out what you were doing here. He was about to call your name when he realised his appearance. You had no idea that your classmate was standing by you. You would only see Spider-man.

“I’m not an Angel but I could be for you.” Peter heard himself say, instantly cringing at the cheesy pickup line.


 You turned around, trying to find the source of the voice. Your gasped aloud open when you saw your favourite Superhero standing in front of you. He looked quite awkward, leaning against a tree with one hand on his hip. You took a moment to take in the person before you. Spider-man was actually quite short, possibly only five feet seven or eight. He wasn’t incredibly muscular but still looked as if you might find him in the gym over by the weights. You couldn’t see his face but it felt as if he was smiling at you.

“Sorry, that was way too cheesy.” Spider-man spoke again and you noted that his voice sounded like a teenage boy.

“It-It’s okay.” You stammered.

“So, erm, what are you doing out here so late?” The hero asked you, walking out into the clearing to stand with you.

“My puppy. She loves an early morning walk.” You replied.

“Your puppy?” Spider-man questioned.

“Her name’s Angel. At the moment I don’t know where’s she got to. You haven’t seen a golden retriever puppy, have you?” You said, looking around again.

“No, but I can definitely help you find her. I have the advantage of a Birdseye view.” He offered you.

“Thank you! I’ll continue down here as you know, I don’t have the advantage.” You replied, earning a laugh from the hero.

You watched a Spider-man shot a web from his wrist and swung up into the tree. Once he was out of view you took a started taking deep breaths. Spider-man had just spoken to you. SPIDER-MAN. Not only had he spoken to you but he used a pick-up line on you. And now he was helping you find your puppy.  

You finally began to look around again for Angel. As you reached the edge of the forest you still saw no sign of your puppy. You looked up to see if Spider-man was around but you saw no sign of him either. You were alone once again. Letting out a sigh, you began walking back through the forest and back to the bench you were sitting on.

Suddenly, you heard a bark followed by the voice of Spider-man. You quickly ran out of the forest and saw Angel scurrying around the feet of the masked hero. He looked up as you approached him and gave you a thumbs up. You smiled in return, crouching down to your puppy.

“Thank you so much! My parents would’ve killed me if I lost her.” You exclaimed, hooking the leash back onto Angel’s collar.

“No problem. It’s what I’m here for!” Spider-man returned.

“So, you help a lot of girls to find their puppies at three in the morning?” You asked, looking up at him.

“No!” He said quickly, earning a smile from you. “Just you.”

“I’m honoured.”

Silence followed your words. You stood up, Angel already tugging on the leash. Spider-man still stood in front of you. You wondered what the expression on his face was right now. And why he offered to help you. Surely there were more important jobs than you not being able to find your puppy. When he had offered, it made him seem like an old friend. The way he spoke to you was friendly and somewhat calming. He was everything that you expected and more. And you were probably never going to see him again.

“Well, I suppose I should say goodbye now. I need to try and fit in a few hours’ sleep before school tomorrow.” You said.

“Oh yeah, school. I should probably do the sa- I mean go and find more people to save.” He replied.

“Thank you again. Hopefully, I shouldn’t need your help again, if this one behaves tomorrow.” You began. “I never actually asked where you found her.”

“She was over by the rose bush. And do you mean to say you’ll be returning?” Spider-man asked, sounding hopeful.

“Most likely yes. Why? Will you be returning?” You questioned him, already thinking of meeting him again.

“Only if you are.” He answered.

You raised your eyebrows at him before letting out a short laugh. You waved at the masked hero before walking towards the park gate. You were suddenly very grateful for your puppy’s love of early morning walks.


Peter awoke, still buzzing from the events from earlier this morning. Out of everyone he could’ve met in the park at three am, he would’ve never expected to see (Y/N). Even though she had no idea it was him, he was so excited to actually speak to her. Other than a few awkward conversations here and there, Peter hadn’t really spoken to (Y/N) too much. He mainly stared at her in the hopes she would somehow realise he liked her. But of course, that hadn’t worked. But now he had a way to speak to her. He could hear a part of himself saying that Spider-man wasn’t a party trick but this wasn’t really a party trick. It was his only way to speak to his crush. Peter was sure anyone else would do the same. Right?

As Peter got ready to leave, he found himself feeling excited to go to school. His encounter with (Y/N) had given him a newfound confidence. The decathlon team all had the same free period today and were going to use it to meet up. This meant Peter would have a chance to speak to his crush, minus the mask this time.


 “Hey everyone.  So, Nationals are next week and we still need to brush up on Physics and Chemistry. Peter can help on Physics and Ned can help out with chemistry.” Michelle announced before sitting down again.

Everyone began flipping through their textbooks and talking amongst themselves. Peter looked opposite him to (Y/N) who was looking at her physics book with a strong look of confusion. She pouted her lips as she flipped the page. This was his chance.

“(Y/N)?” He said, a blush already beginning to form on his cheeks.

“What’s up Peter?” She asked, giving him a friendly smile.

“Y-you seem confused. I wondered if you n-needed any help?” He stuttered.

“That would be amazing Peter! I’m so bad at Physics and I haven’t really had much time to revise.” (Y/N) replied.

“I’m sure you’re not bad.” Peter mumbled, unable to let her put herself down.

“Trust me, Peter, I’m bad. If I had time maybe I wouldn’t be. But school just loves to give out Homework.” She sighed.

“That I can agree with. I barely get any sleep these days.” Peter said, thinking of how he struggled to balance school life and his superhero duties.

“On top of homework, my new puppy loves to be walked at two am. Although, this morning’s walk was kind of worth the lack of sleep.” (Y/N) added, a smile playing at her lips.

Peter felt himself smile at her words. (Y/N) seemed to have enjoyed their encounter as much as he had. She seemed happier than usual and it thrilled Peter to know that he was the reason. Or at least his superhero persona was the reason.

“W-why was it worth it?” He managed to ask.

“Well, I thought I shouldn’t tell anyone but I’ve already told Michelle and Betty so I might as well tell you as well.” (Y/N) began, before leaning over so her mouth was by his ear.

“I met Spider-man!” She whispered excitedly.

(Y/N) leant back in her seat, the sunlight streaming through the window and onto her face. Her natural glow was enhanced by the sun. Peter couldn’t help but stare at her with a sappy grin on his face. She was truly beautiful.

“You don’t believe me, do you?” (Y/N) stated, a sadness in her voice.

“Oh no, I do believe you! I was just a little shocked that’s all.” Peter managed to save himself

“I was as well! I’ve never seen anyone in the park when I’ve walked Angel before, so when I saw Spider-man out of all people- I was so surprised.” She gushed.

“What was he like?” Peter inquired casually.

“Everything you could want. Kind, funny, friendly,” (Y/N) started to say before stopping. “Sorry, I feel like I sound like I’m in love with him.”

“Aren’t you?” Betty leaned over and added, a smirk on her face.

Both Peter and (Y/N) blushed whilst Betty laughed. Peter gulped, seeing the look of embarrassment on (Y/N)’s face.

“Well, you do go on about him an awful lot. That’s all I have to say.” Betty stated before turning back to her own conversation.

(Y/N) looked at Peter, who stared at her like a deer caught in headlights. She brushed a piece of hair behind her ear before talking again.

“I’m not in love with Spider-man. I just admire him a lot.” She tried to justify herself.

“I-I’m not accusing you of anything (Y/N).” Peter said, feeling his blush deepen.

“I know, I know. Anyway, how could I be in love with someone’s name and face I don’t even know?” (Y/N) replied.

“Well, I don’t know much about love but from what I’ve heard it’s about personality over looks.” He suggested to her.

“I suppose so. Anyway, you should probably start teaching me physics!” (Y/N) said, eager to change the conversation subject.

Peter smiled at his crush, incredibly satisfied by the fact that they were talking.

“Of course. Let me teach you.”

anonymous asked:

I recently decided to get into Hellenic Polytheism and have been intimidated by the ampunt of knowledge and simply how to pratice. Do you have any beginner advice on where to start in research and what to know before you begin?

Welcome, Anon! We’ve all been where you are now. The best place to begin is with Walter Burkert’s “Greek Religion” and “Ancient Mystery Cults”. You’ll want to read Hesiod’s “Theogony” and “Works and Days”, too. I also recommend study of the oracle at Delphi and the Delphic Maxims, the Homeric Hymns, and the Orphic Hymns.

I can’t recommend any of the how-to books for modern Hellenic practice, because one size doesn’t fit all. A few people have the time, energy, and physical means each day to bathe, dress in ancient Hellenic attire, have a procession of one, strew barley on their altar, go through the ritual, and clean up afterwards. A lot of us light a candle and/or offer some incense and a quick prayer each day before eating breakfast and rushing off to work or school - or after staggering home from work or school. And some of us are doing their best by remembering to say “Hi, thanks for your blessings!” once a week. 

What you really need to know before you begin is who the Theoi are, and why you, personally, want to build kharis with them. Theoi.com is a great place to learn about the gods, and the cult titles and epithets you’ll find there will help your understanding of what the Theoi meant to their ancient worshipers, and be useful in composing your own prayers. The Homeric and Orphic Hymns are there, too.

PSA (PUBLIC SWIFTIE ANNOUNCEMENT)

Hey everyone, so I have seen a lot of talk about people feeling left out or unloved or favorites being played or people saying they’ll never be noticed or meet Taylor. Just overall a whole load of negativity and it has been bothering me a lot - not only because I know you how you feel, but also because I know we’re wrong and there isn’t enough support and positivity going around on this website. 

So I have decided to type out a giant text post regarding the way I feel about all of this, and I think some of you may find it really helpful or comforting, and some of you may brush it off.. and that’s fine as well. I just have a lot of thoughts right now, so I’m putting them into words.

1 - I’m going to start with a blanket statement that I’m sure a lot of you that are feeling upset or left out are tired of hearing but i promise this statement is true: Taylor Swift loves each and every one of us who love and support her. She does. End of story.

2 - I feel like giving up all the time, she’ll never notice me or want to meet me because I don’t post that many selfies and I don’t talk about my everyday life as often as some do, I am too insecure to post funny videos or to do a live stream on instagram. But when my anxiety settles and I take a look around - that is not what Taylor is looking for. Does it attract her attention sometimes? Yep, of course it does. But so do posts about her music, posts about how much we love her, stories of what she’s done for us, dad jokes related to her or just general freak outs when she releases a new single, a new video or even just an AT&T commercial that’s 30 seconds long.

3 - It is so easy to feel small and feel like she will never notice you because there are just too many of us - and while the fact that there are a ton of us is true, it doesn’t mean she won’t ever find you and it does not mean that it’s never going to be your time, there are people I know - mutuals, that had never been noticed by Taylor and had been here for years and randomly one day Taylor started liking all their stuff, all the time. I realize that I don’t know Taylor personally but if I know anything about the women that I have spent over the last decade dedicated to - it’s that she truly loves us and goes out of her way to find us and make sure we all feel special and loved, and she tries on a daily basis to find new blogs that have been out there rooting for her - so please just be patient - it is NOT because she hates the stuff you post or thinks your weird or doesn’t like you or just ignores you, it’s not! We’re all funny, we’re all witty, we’re all beautiful, we’re all fangirls and we all love Taylor - we all post a million things every day that she would like if she saw it. So just be patient, she’ll see it one day.

4. Meeting Taylor may seem impossible now, and I am going in and out of feeling that way myself. So your feelings are completely valid and absolutely one hundred and ten percent understandable and normal to feel. BUT, please try and keep an open mind and stay positive about it. I obviously can’t sit here and say every single last one of her hardcore and casual fans will meet Taylor, because there are MILLIONS upon MILLIONS of people that like Taylor Swift. But I CAN say that those of us out here going the extra mile, those of us who have been here for long haul, those of us out here with blogs dedicated to her and living the swift lifestyle will get our day. And I swear to you - I know it in my gut - Taylor is out there trying to figure out how she’s going to make it happen. Also, Taylor isn’t going anywhere anytime soon - there is time, be patient. 

5. Seeing people meet Taylor can be hard, because jealousy is a real and perfectly normal emotion especially when it comes to something you’ve dreamed of for so long and seeing so many other people get this can make you feel so small. And then you start to feel selfish and it’s an endless battle because you don’t want to be jealous. So start with this thought process: Those fans have wanted to meet Taylor just as much as you do, and they too at one point said to themselves “she’ll never notice me, she’ll never want to meet me” but look at them now! So try to be happy for them, because they have lived out one of their dreams by getting to meet her, and that is such a beautiful thing to happen to anyone, it really is! Even though it makes me a little jealous and sad - honestly, I LOVE seeing my mutuals and even people i’ve never spoken to meet Taylor, because of first of all you have photographic evidence of people meeting the one person they’ve always wanted to meet - the person that saved their lives or made them chase their dreams or feel brave enough to fal in love, and everyone deserves the chance to hug and thank Taylor for all those beautiful things. I think about how happy I would be if that were me, and then I realize THAT’S how happy those fans are, and that is such an amazing thing to see people so happy. Just try to embrace it, try to be happy for them even if its hard sometimes. But also, realize that it is okay to have moments of sadness and doubt, but don’t let it consume you because your time will come. 

6 - Think about it this way - the more people that get to go to sessions and meet Taylor and get noticed or whatever it may be, the more room there is for you to get your chance! So be excited that people are meeting her! It means you’re one step closer to having your moment with Taylor. Seeing that she’s out there actively trying to meet as many people as possible, even if it isnt you right that moment, means that she is doing her best and WANTS to meet us. ALL OF US. 

7 - Remember to be thankful - remember that Taylor does not have to do any of this. Sometimes I think this fandom as a whole, myself included at times, gets spoiled with the fact that Taylor does all of these things for us - packages, over the top tours, ticket programs so we don’t lose tickets to scalpers, meet and greets before and after her concert, welcome us into her home, joining live streams, reblogging and commenting and liking tumblr posts, following us on social media… no other celebrity does that, because they do not have to. Taylor literally owes us nothing and yet she gives us everything. So try to stay humble and remember that… try to remember that this fandom as a whole is so blessed to begin with that Taylor is so good to us… that even if you don’t get noticed anytime soon or don’t get invited to meet her.. we still have been given so much by Taylor and she does the best that she can. 

8 - I can’t speak for Taylor but I feel like it hurts her when she sees negative posts about her not liking us or not noticing us or never going to want to meet us because we aren’t good enough. She loves all of us and you know better. You know she doesn’t want to make any of us feel left out or hurt or isolated or not good enough… she’d include every single of us if she could at one time. We just have to wait for our time. Patience is key.

I don’t know if anything I said helped, or made sense or if anyone even read this far (hi, thank you if you did) but I just really wanted to get that out there… incase anyone needed to see it. 

JUST REMEMBER THAT TAYLOR LOVES ALL OF US - ME, YOU, YOUR MUTUALS, MY MUTUALS AND SO ON. YOUR TIME TO BE NOTICED AND/OR MEET TAYLOR WILL COME. JUST BE PATIENT WITH HER, OK? SHE’S DOING HER BEST TO MEET US ALL.

How He Fell in Love | Jungkook

Jungkook x OC

Genre: fluff

Words: 1.6k

Seokjin | Yoongi | Namjoon | Hoseok | Jimin | Taehyung | Jungkook

How Jungkook fell in love is a story of first loves, or more a story of trying to forget them. 


Jungkook wasn’t an amateur in love in any means. He’s had his fair share of relationships, serious ones, casual ones, and ones for mutual benefit despite his squeaky clean maknae image. But amidst all of these girls that came and went, it seemed as if all of them were just placeholders to forget about his first love, Jennie.

He didn’t like to think of her often, not that he had a choice in the matter. But every girl he met, he just compared to her, yet no one could ever compare to her at the same time. Even after five years, he found himself regretting letting go of her and every stolen moment with someone else was just an attempt to forget about her. This went on for five grueling years, until he had the pleasure of meeting you.

Jungkook often fell in love remarkably fast, mostly because he was trying his best to. He wanted to rid himself of her memory and that was exactly when he fell into you. Your first meeting was at a congratulations party for Bangtan’s new album. You were a co-producer for a company that was quiet close to BitHit and at least for Jungkook, it didn’t take long to spot you out in the room. You were hanging by yourself in the sea of people, a drink in hand, leaning against a counter in the corner of the living room. For some reason it reminded Jungkook of himself, especially since he’s an awful introvert as well. He’d “fixed” it a lot over the years of socializing and such but that didn’t mean that he didn’t have a soft spot for cute shy girls at parties who didn’t know how to enjoy themselves.

From that first moment he saw you, he knew that you weren’t his type, Jennie was. She was outspoken, emotional, and at times over the top. She was like fireworks in the middle of September. But you were the opposite. Jungkook truly just intended to ease you up to the party, help you out, but he didn’t know what he was in for with you.

Hello again! Here are my most recent reads! These are some fantastic fics so please read them and leave kudos and comments for these incredibly talented authors! 

All I Want Is To Be Free by lululawrence (11k)

“Uh, you saw photos? Of me wearing the shirt?”

The guy nodded eagerly while he pulled his phone out of his pocket. “Yeah! I took a picture of the photo I saw so I could remember to look it up. Hold on.”

The guy scrolled through his phone and made a happy sound when he found it. “Here!”

Louis grabbed his phone to look at the picture. Yep. That confirmed it. He was going crazy.

The photo he was looking at was definitely one of him wearing his beloved shirt, but there was a taller man standing beside him, looking at him and laughing as Louis had his hand resting possessively on the guy’s hip. Louis had absolutely no recollection of this ever happening.

Or the one where Louis keeps finding photos around campus of him with a man he’s never met before, and the only logical explanation must be he’s going crazy.

Baby Honey by nikogda (8k)

“Lou, did you see these little baby tea boxes I found yesterday?” He tossed one towards Louis and watched as it thumped Louis in the head.
Louis groaned and reached for the little box, rolling it around in his hands, “If you’re about to make a joke about me. I strongly suggest you don’t.”
Harry frowned and bounced his tea bag in the water watching the liquid darken, “M’ not! I just thought the babytea boxes were cute.”
Louis’ eyes narrowed and he looked at the tiny boxes, and back at Harry. Harry watched, he could see the wheels turning inside of Louis’ mind. He shifted his weight from one foot to the other. Louis looked at the box once more and back at Harry

or… After four years of Marriage, Harry discovers he is expecting. He could go home and hand the ultrasound photo to his amazing husband, Louis. Or… he could have some fun with this. Only Louis catching on to all the hints Harry is dropping.

Or is he?

cupid’s defence by rhuubarb (117k)

In which Harry is Cupid, Louis and Liam own a law firm, and they’re all getting sued.

Fall with Style by crimsontheory (14k)

Louis doesn’t get out too much due to his shyness. The only two friends he has he met online and they both live miles and miles away. Then along comes a cute bartender that completely flips Louis’ life upside down.

Far Afield by QuickedWeen (11k)

Harry Styles is a witch who owns the best flower shop in Manchester. Lottie Tomlinson is planning her wedding, and brings her brother along to her first appointment. Both men have been having a bad day and sparks fly.

Go Out for Adventure, Come Home for Love by myownspark (9k)

Four years of iconic moments that inspire tattoos and promises. Fic inspired by the song “Spaces” which includes the lyric “forgetting every single promise we ever made.” Five promises, plus one extra just for fun (because how can you hear Harry say he’s good at falling asleep in front of the fire and not write about it? Honestly).

It’s Hard to Say It, Time to Say It by kikikryslee (11k)

Harry sighed. “We have a lot of clothes in stock, sir-”
“Please don’t call me ‘sir,’” the guy said. “I’m only twenty-six.”
“OK, then. We have a lot of clothes in stock, dude, so finding something else in your size won’t be a problem if it means you’ll buy something. What are you? Like, an extra small?”
The guy actually had the nerve to look offended. Harry resisted laughing. “Hey! I’ll have you know that I’m a medium!”
“In what?” Harry asked, looking the guy over. “Children’s?”

Or, the one where Louis is an annoying customer who won’t leave Harry’s shop on time, and Harry is counting down the seconds until Louis leaves. Until a chance encounter at a concert, and suddenly, Harry really doesn’t want Louis to leave.

My Lights Stay Up, But Your City Sleeps by PearlyDewdrops (108k)

Harry breaks into his own smile, scrunching his nose when he glances back up, meeting Louis’ eyes, his stiff posture loosening. They stare for a beat, Harry’s smile dwindling. “So… you’re okay with it? That it can’t go anywhere?”

Louis nods easily. “We’re on the same page. Promise.” He holds out his pinkie to prove it, mind hazy and giddy from alcohol. Harry’s dimples appear in each cheek as he holds out his own, their pinkies intertwining. “We’re just two people who like each other, have fun together, and who may or may not kiss and… stuff.” He grins, wild adrenaline pumping through to his fingertips.

Harry sinks his teeth into his bottom lip, lowering his flushed gaze to the floor.

“Just don’t go falling in love with me, and it’ll be fine,” Louis smirks.

Or Louis has trouble sleeping, Harry has a habit of wrapping himself around Louis during the nights, and a mutual agreement to engage in a fun and simple thing quickly turns into something perhaps not so fun, and certainly not simple.

One Day, Maybe Next Week by kikikryslee (6k)

Louis was staring at him, expecting a response, and Harry was supposed to be the one coming up with that response, and he was so not prepared, so he blurted out the first thing that came to mind.
“Where were you? You weren’t on the bus for a few days.”
Louis raised an eyebrow. “What?”
“Uh… Sorry, I just- Um, sort of noticed that maybe you weren’t on the bus since last week. Not that I watch for when you’re on the bus or anything. That would be weird. Obviously, you have your own schedule, and I have mine. I just saw that you weren’t here, so I wondered what you were doing, or if something bad happened, like you got kidnapped or something. God, that sounded creepy. I promise I’m not threatening your life or something. Jesus, just stop me. If you have pepper spray, I would totally understand if you got me in the eyes right now.”
Louis had his lips pressed together at this point, holding back a laugh. Harry really didn’t blame him for that.

Or, the one where Harry just really wants to talk to Louis. And when he finally does, everything he says just comes out wrong.

One Shines Brighter by afirethatcannotdie (12k)

“Hi, baby. You doing anything fun today?”

Harry shrugs. “Dunno. Thought I’d see how I was feeling before making any plans.”

“You wanna get married?” Louis asks. Harry’s face breaks into a smile, and he nods.

Louis’ lips are just brushing Harry’s when Gemma appears in the hallway. “You two are in so much trouble.”

Harry’s wedding was never supposed to be the happiest day of his life. No, that was going to be the day after, when he finally got to start his marriage. Unfortunately his family (and Louis) have other ideas.

Featuring a pair of moms who only want the best for their kids, meddling sisters with too much time on their hands, and a groom who gets caught up in the fairytale.

Show Me Life Like I’ve Never Seen by Rearviewdreamer (43k)

Louis never expected to leave the small art studio three blocks down from his job with anything besides the painting he caught a glimpse of and simply couldn’t forget.

Small Doses (Loving You It’s Explosive) by QuickedWeen (39k)

Louis Tomlinson finds himself at Vitality Fitness to try and turn his life around after having left his cheating boyfriend of four years. The gym’s owner, Liam, quickly becomes a good friend, but his right hand man is rude and dismissive from the get-go.

Louis and Harry continue to clash all while Harry is trying to move his way up the ranks in Manchester’s amateur boxing circuit, but they can’t seem to stay away from each other.

Sound Like a Song by allwaswell16 (14k)

In high school, Louis Tomlinson lit up Harry’s world like nobody else, even if Harry did most of his pining from the safety of his tightly knit circle of friends. Ten years later, Harry is ready to make some changes. He’s tired of having so many regrets and not taking charge of his life, and he still hasn’t forgotten how brightly Louis shines. He’s about to get a long awaited second chance.

Or the one where Harry helps out at a farmer’s market and gives Louis free vegetables.

The Art of the Giants by asphodelknox (11k)

Louis is dancing away from an old relationship when he meets Harry at a bookstore in the busy streets of Seattle. Harry is just a bookstore owner hoping his handsome weekly visitor could become something more.

Your Mess Is Mine by amory (177k)

Louis is the father to the most brilliant little boy in the world who is all Louis really needs, or at least that’s what he tells himself. Harry is a gorgeous boybander fresh off a two year break and a massive scandal that’s left him a little broken and more than ready to move on.

They fall in love.

His office was smaller than she had expected, but it was cosy nonetheless. It seemed that he had put quite the amount of time and effort into making his workspace as comfortable as possible, for himself and his patients. And it worked. The glass jar filled with individually wrapped miniature candy bars was a nice touch, she thought, as well as the water dispenser. He sat on a black leather chair behind his large desk, his laptop in front of him, an old-fashioned mouse attached to it. Behind him, a tall shelf filled with archive folders and textbooks. On the wall, a bunch of diplomas and certifications from various entities, all framed and neatly displayed. There was a stretcher tucked close to the wall, a tall clothes hanger where only a black winter coat - probably his - rested and, other than that, the room was quite empty. She took in the sight for a moment, before clearing her throat to get his attention.

“Oh, I’m sorry, I was caught up in my readings,” he chuckled softly, getting up from his chair and approaching her. “Min Yoongi, and you must be Alma Paz.”

Mama Gretchen’s Beginners’ Guide to Offering and Sacrifice

“Knowest how one shall write, knowest how one shall rede?
Knowest how one shall tint, knowest how one makes trial?
Knowest how one shall ask, knowest how one shall offer?
Knowest how one shall send, knowest how one shall sacrifice?”

–The Havamol (Bellows)

One of the most common sources of frustration for people who are new to Heathenry or who are resuming active practice after a long break is the act of sacrifice.  What makes an appropriate offering?  Which gods prefer which observations?  How should the act be performed?  Why would a god want anything that I have?

Now, in my opinion, the most important thing to remember here is that an offering establishes a very personal sort of connection between the person or group giving the offering and whatever wight (god, nature spirit, ancestor, et cetera) it’s being given to.  As such, the wight is going to be the final authority on what is and isn’t appropriate.  If you don’t have that kind of relationship, or aren’t receiving any signals, here are my tips:

A great place to start is to read up on whatever wight you want to build communion with, what sorts of items and deeds they’re associated with, how they may have been honored historically, and how contemporary devotees are honoring them now.  Thor, as one good example, is strongly associated with drinking alcohol, both in the extant lore and in a lot of people’s modern conceptions of him, so a bowl or horn (or can, bottle, cup, etc.) of your favorite adult beverage is something you can’t go wrong with.  Likewise we’re told quite explicitly in the stories that Odin enjoys wine; and just as a general thing, the sharing of drink as a way to build relationships is a very common motif throughout modern Heathenry.

There are a lot of wights about whom we don’t have a lot of that direct information, so you’ll have to divine or contrive the associations based on stories about the things they’ve done–and that’s just fine!  Whatever you end up doing is only “wrong” if it doesn’t work.

And about that:  A lot of folks will ask why the gods “need” this or that thing in sacrifice.  Well, they don’t.  But that’s not the point.  The act of sacrifice is meant to express love, devotion, and respect for the target by demonstrating your willingness to give of yourself–as such, as long as whatever you’re giving is something of value to you (even if that value is entirely sentimental), the intent is far more important than the thing.  The idea here is to build community and establish relationships, not material enrichment.

You really can’t go wrong with consumables–food, drink, sweets, even cigarettes.  I’ve always had best results with offerings that seem in some way appropriate, but really, “appropriate” is a relative term; that’s up to the wight of the hour, so trust your intuition.  I’ve been told by devotees of Loki that he’s a fan of sponge cake.

But an offering doesn’t have to be something like that, or even a tangible item at all.  The target of your devotion will appreciate anything made by your hand or craft, or anything you hold dear yourself or that you think they’d like.  I’ve done well writing devotional poetry for Woden, for one thing.  Whatever you’re giving, you need only approach your focus, whatever that might be–an altar with a picture or statue, or a plain altar, or anyplace that feels sacred to you—with a sense of reverence and respect, and give up your sacrifice with appropriate words. Again, “appropriate” is a funny word; most of the time, just something along the lines of, “Here, this is for you, I thought you might like it” will be plenty.

Now, a point of order:  Whatever you’ve offered up in sacrifice belongs to the wight of the occasion, it’s no longer yours, and it must be got rid of.

That doesn’t have to be as scary as it sounds, though; you certainly *can* ritually break something and throw it into a bog, if you *want* to, but you don’t have to.  There are a lot of ways to do that.

With offerings of food or drink, my favorite thing to do is return it to the earth in some way, by pouring out, burying, or exposing–If you like historical precedents, Ahmad Ibn Fadlan reported that the Kievan Rus would rejoice when dogs came to eat the food offered to the gods, because they saw it as a sign that the offering had been well received.

Burning is also a good option; not only is the offered thing got rid of, but also the act of burning can be seen as symbolizing a transmutation from the physical to the spiritual.

If none of these are an option, there’s nothing wrong with putting offerings in the trash or down the drain; that’s what you do with your own leftovers you aren’t going to finish, yeah?  Just make sure it’s done with the same respect and reverence as the act of offering was; try viewing it as a separation or disavowal rather than disposal.

And you *can* eat the food or drink the beverage yourself, but that’s a different sort of sacrifice; call that sharing a communal meal, rather than giving a gift.

For less tangible things, I consider my devotional poetry to be “got rid of” when I’ve posted and shared them, sending them out into the aether.  And a devotional deed is “gone” once you’re done doing it.

If you’re giving an object that you’re hesitant to break or throw away, that’s okay, too; you can “get rid of it” by considering it a sacred object that you’re now borrowing, and so shouldn’t be used for mundane purposes.  A statue or some other kind of focus is a good offering; it can sit right on your altar, and depending on your spiritual tradition you might’ve just given your wight a nice place to live when they’re visiting.  Knives make good athames.  Tarot decks, kitchen implements, anything else “witchy”; it’s a great way to build spiritual relationships and consecrate your tools at the same time.  And you can come up with a special new purpose for just about any item, if you think about it.

You can generally expect to get some benefit from your offering, but you shouldn’t expect anything specific unless you have a very, very close relationship with the target of your offering, and you should never treat it as a quid-pro-quo relationship.  The idea here is to build a mutual relationship, and whether that means a friendship or the relationship of client and patron, demanding one thing in exchange for another like a financial transaction is pretty friggin rude.

Ultimately, gift-giving and sacrifice are fundamentally personal things; in individual practice, it’s between the wight and the practitioner; in communal practice, it’s between the wight and whatever in-group.  So, what you should or shouldn’t do depends on a lot of things–the particulars of your spiritual path or tradition, the nature of whichever wight you’re offering to, the relationship you may or may not have with them, your living situation, and so on.  All I have to offer are tips and suggestions; at the end of the day, the best advice I can give you is to trust your instincts.  If it feels right, it probably is.

“I don’t feel too well.”

You knit your eyebrows together as you glance sideways at your boyfriend, whose cheeks were beginning to turn pale. His knuckles were whitening around the wheel, and before you can say anything, he’s pulling over to the side of the road. 

With one swift click, he has the driver’s door open and you hear sounds of him hurling out his guts at the side of the road. 

“Sweetie,” you murmur as you trace circles on his back, trying very hard not to be bothered at all by the smell. “What’s wrong? Do you have food poisoning?”

“No, no,” he says after a moment. You hand him a bottle and he fills his mouth up with water, before spitting it all out. “Just a little motion sick, that’s all.”

You smile, and your hand moves up to stroke his cheek. “You should lie down in the back. Let me drive.”

You tried driving as smoothly as you could, even slowing down to the very minimum speed legally allowed as to not provoke Niall any further. But that didn’t stop him from grabbing a plastic bag and heaving every few minutes. 

The windows were rolled down, as to keep the stench out, but also because you thought the fresh air would help clear his head. “Focus on a still spot,” you tell him. “It’ll help. Just look at a spot that isn’t moving, and it’ll help, I promise.”

“Everything’s moving, Y/N,” Niall snaps. He immediately apologies, “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to be rude. I just–”

“I know,” you say sincerely, glancing at him via the rearview mirror. “There’s a gas station up ahead and we have to stop anyway. How ‘bout you pick up some snacks to fill your now-empty stomach?”

Niall smiles at you through pained eyes. “That sounds lovely.”

You can tell that simply walking around is improving his state of mind, and you happily let him pick out junk foods that he would otherwise ignore. “Be sure to add gum,” you add. 

He laughs, “What? Does my breath bother you?” He tries to lean in for a kiss, and you just smack him playfully on the shoulder.

“I’m not kissing you until you’ve brushed your teeth. Or at least chewed a stick of gum!” You exclaim. Nevertheless, he manages to sneak a kiss on your cheek and you roll your eyes, happily paying for all of the snacks.


Five minutes. Five minutes of bliss, before he’s throwing up again. “Y/N,” he whispers, head leaning against your shoulder. He thought sitting up front would be better. Unfortunately, it wasn’t.

“Yeah?”

“Can I crash at a hotel tonight?”

This takes you by surprise. It takes all you have not to crash into another car. You say, calmly, “What do you mean? We’re staying at my parent’s house tonight.”

You couldn’t look into his eyes as he says his next words, but you knew that they must’ve looked sincere. “I don’t feel too well. I don’t want to become a burden. I can find a hotel nearby, throw up to my heart’s content, and I’ll be in a better condition to entertain your family tomorrow.”

Frowning, you argue, “You’re not a burden.” He tries to interrupt, but you continue, “Yes, tomorrow’s my family reunion, and there will be a lot of people there expecting you to be a gentleman, but you don’t have to feel like you need to entertain anyone.”

“Y/N–”

“It’ll be fine,” you say with a smile. You take one hand off the wheel to clasp his. “I promise.”

You continue to hold his hand, even as he lifts another plastic bag to heave into. 


“Y/N! Niall! You both made it in one piece!” Your mom embraces you as Niall shakes your dad’s hand.

You quietly murmur, “Well, not exactly.”

“How are you, Niall? Looking a little sheepish,” your mom remarks as she wraps her arms around your boyfriend, who was starting to sway a little. “Is he okay?” She asks, turning to face you.

“Fine,” Niall answers her with a pressed smile. “Just…just a little dizzy, that’s all. Do you mind me using the bathroom?”

“No, not at all.”

You all watch as he fast-walks (practically sprints) to the downstairs washroom and even though it’s a few feet away and the door is locked, the sounds of him retching is loud and clear.

“Motion sick,” you tell your parents. They give you sympathetic looks. “He’s been like that the entire trip. Is it alright if we just hang out upstairs for tonight?”

Your dad clears his throat. “It’s no problem at all. Hope he feels better.”


“I love you so much.”

You grin, pushing the bedroom door shut with your foot. It was 9 in the evening, and you have just carried up a tray with a bowl of hot soup and a plate of dinner for Niall, who was on bedrest. 

“I know,” you smile. “I love you too. Even though you made the entire car ride stink.”

Niall laughs, taking the tray out of your hands and resting it on the bedside table. He pulls you to his chest, and you happily bury yourself into the comfiness that is his cotton jumper. “I don’t deserve you,” you hear him murmur as you sprawl yourself out on his lap and look up into his bright blue eyes. “You are too perfect.”

“Right back at you.”



not my best work, but I’m too proud of nialler to not publish this.

i didn’t know where to end up posting this fic, here or the psycho blog, but i decided on here because i promised to tag @justwritingscibbles because she’s a doll, a babe, a great writer, and she honestly gave the motivation to write this along with @synodicsean so here it’ll be. 

another Damien fic that’ll get lost in the millions out there. also as i was typing this i liked the theory that we were the host before he became the host more and more. 

enjoy the show!


The days at university… you remembered that was when you met him. Walking in with zero clue as to where to go after having found your room, you decided to walk around campus. Enjoying the breeze and energy of the rustle and bustle of people all around you. Normally you preferred staying inside, but the library was important. You had to find it. You had to get that new book, read it’s ending, and throw it at the wall after realizing the author just rushed it and did the arc no justice.  

That was the plan. Until of course you found yourself at a crossroads. Left or right? You looked at the signs looking for which one said ‘library’ but couldn’t find it. You were about to go for the right and hope for the best. Perhaps that way at least you’d get a horrifying story to tell your kids, teaching them to not be like you. But three taps to your shoulder made you turn around instead of taking that step forward. Behind you was a man, probably a year or two older than you, with neat hair and kind eyes. His eyes…

“Excuse me, miss,” a deep voice seemed to suavely start directing speech to you. “You dropped this.” He handed you a student ID – one that was supposed to be on your lanyard but when you looked down to the lanyard, the ID had fallen off. You took the card gratefully.

“Thank you,” you said. “That’s the last time I put this on the lanyard.” You stuffed the ID into your pocket before looking up at the man with the kind eyes.
