actually the best moment of my life

8

When I first started working and I started making money, I was speaking with a business manager and they said, ‘You should start investing your money, what do you want to do with your money?’ And first thing was I wanted to pay off my mum’s mortgage. Every couple of months I would check in and be like, 'Do we have enough yet?’ and he would be like, 'No, not yet'… And then eventually he was like, 'You can afford to pay your mum’s mortgage now.’ I feel very lucky that I actually had the opportunity to do that. It was definitely one of the best moments of my life.

GUYS THIS WAS WORTH 80% OF MY FINAL EXAM GRADE FOR OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT AND I GOT AN A

things you should definitely 100% not think about when you think about philip shea (except do because philip shea is perfect and you should always think about him)

- Okay, first of all, don’t think about how Philip was literally almost shot and actually did literally beg for his life for a moment and allowed himself to be scared about that for approximately .5 seconds before sucking it up and remaining seemingly calm for pretty much the rest of the show (except for when he realized tommy and tracey were in danger. because philip shea cares about other people. but once they are gone, he accepts it quickly and moves on. that is philips’ like number one skill. accept and move on. don’t think about why that is).

- Don’t think about how he somehow got to the city in the middle of the night and then didn’t even risk going inside. Don’t think about how he just curled up on the couch outdoors as if this was a common, acceptable place for him to sleep and passed out, alone, after almost being killed.

- Don’t think about how he goes from saying “I’m done. can’t go back, can’t go back there” to accepting he can’t live with him mom again in approximately ten seconds. He doesn’t argue too much about it. Doesn’t beg or plead or threaten to run away. Just says “I know” and gives his mom cigarettes and then sits and comes out to her because she wants to hear nice things about him and to him, lukas liking him back enough to kiss him is a nice thing.

- Don’t think about how when given the opportunity, Philip will sit next to a man who has almost definitely abused him and just do nothing but pretend the guy likes him.

- Don’t think about his honest confusion when he asks “Why not” after Lukas says he didn’t have sex with Rose.

- Don’t think about how Philip is so calm and willing to do or be whatever the person he loves (read: his mom and Lukas) needs him to be. I mean, yes, he tells Lukas no that one time and calls him on his shit other times, but really, overall, the kid is willing to put himself on the line for those he cares about: “Had to be cool for my mom—I can be cool for you to.” “What do you want me to say? I’ll say whatever you want.” Ugh, he just—he tells Lukas not to drink the hand sanitizer but then three seconds later he does the same thing, no questions asked, because Lukas tells him to. Don’t even get me started on the whole Rose debacle.

- Lukas freaks out when Philip hands him a condom, Philip minimizes it and says “It’s okay. it’s okay, it’s fine” coaxes him back down and no more pressure to do anything. Philip tells Lukas he told his mom about them, Lukas says “There’s nothing to say” and Philip just nods quickly, “Okay.” Doesn’t argue. Doesn’t call Lukas on anything. Just says okay and then offers to take Lukas into the city cause he thinks that will help him.

- Philip won’t get Lukas drugs, but he will help Lukas look for things to sell when he asks and go with him to the pawn shop and wait outside while he does it.

- And, like, I’m not saying this to say Philip is a pushover or weak, he’s not- he’s just contained. All the time. He is the stable one. The calm one. He is careful not to push too much. He thinks of solutions and waits to see if they will actually be listened to but is very, very cautious with actually being assertive with his ideas/wants/needs. He is just so much more attuned to everyone else.

- Oh, ALSO, don’t think too much about how Philip overheard Gabe and Helen arguing about him and chose to step out and put himself in that line of fire anyway. He could have just hung back and waited a little. Or, fuck, run off until things cooled down. But Gabe was being yelled at and they were arguing and so he decided to step in. Cause Philip wants to keep everyone happy.

I had told my mom that I had paid off her mortgage. That was something when I first started working and I was making money, I was speaking with a business manager and they said, ‘you should invest your money. What do you want to do with it?’ And I said, first thing is I want to pay off my mom’s mortgage. They said it was going to be a long time before I could afford to do that, but that’s what we worked towards. Every couple of months I’d check in, 'do we have enough yet?’ And then eventually he was like, you can afford to pay your mom’s mortgage. We did all the paperwork and stuff and it was a big secret to be sitting on for so long. But yeah, it was definitely one of the best moments of my life. It’s like, what any kid dreams of being able to do for your parent and I feel very lucky that I actually had the opportunity to do that.

AMAZING HOW MUCH YOU CAN SWEAT IN A SINGLE HOUR HA HA H AH AH AH AHAHAHA AH :^)

I AM FREAKING OUT SO MUCH RIGHT NOW

my sis and I are working on cosplays of the evil sisters from kubo and the two strings, and we’ve been posting progress pictures on Instagram and I put up a picture of the mostly finished pipe

AND THE ACTUAL FOR-REAL COSTUME DESIGNER FOR THE MOVIE LIKED OUR POSTS AND COMPLIMENTED US IN THE COMMENTS

modernmonkeymind  asked:

My best friend asked me to be his son's Godfather. The mom is Christian, and he's "Buddhist" in that he doesn't really ascribe to anything at the moment, but would identify as such if pressed. I'm Atheist and draw on Buddhism/Yoga/Advaita & neuroscience for my spiritual practice. I was wondering what advice you had, as my friend wants me to be an active presence in my Godson's life and actually have a hand in his spiritual training.

Be a good friend to your godson. Children can be naturally spiritual, asking The Big Questions. 

But more important than imposing spiritual training on a child is embodying the spiritual way yourself. 

Children are very impressionable but do not take well to overt attempts to mold them. Better than making a child meditate is for that child to be raised by meditators. People who will be patient and compassionate yet decisive and firm. Loving and open yet powerful and strong. 

Lastly, I would give you the wisdom of Kahlil Gibran:

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

You are the bows from which your children
as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
and He bends you with His might
that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies,
so He loves also the bow that is stable.

Namaste :) Much love.

Top 5 Kagehina moments

These are going to be very generic and obvious so I apologize in advance. I also haven’t rewatched in FOREVER, so I might be forgetting some very important moments. Also it’s become sort of difficult to separate actual canon events from my own headcanon/fanon/fanfic written and read so…I’ll try my best:

(In no particular order)

1. Their very first meeting.

I love this for so many reasons (I told you - typical), but what I love the most about it is that Kageyama literally defends Hinata from his team mates. He’s already chosen where his loyalties will lie, and he obviously chose correctly. 

2. Their fight

Really, Kageyama? Your reflexes are so shitty you couldn’t have, like, jumped out of his way? You WATCH HIM GRAB YOU. THE FUCK ARE YOU WAITING ABOUT FOR? Anyway, the realism of their movements here chokes me up - how Kag’s hand gets caught at the back of Hinata’s shirt, that little hopping thing Kags does after he flings Hinata to the floor…not to mention the thing that Hinata says right before Kageyama shoves him to the floor is that “he wants to be strong enough to compete by myself”. Yeah, if I loved my team mate and he just implied he didn’t want to be my partner anymore, I’d freak out too (I’m totally full of shit idc).

 3. This.

“Did you cry?”

“No I didn’t cry! now go use the toilet!”

“You can’t fool me, Kageyama-kun.”

Look at those blushies.

4. Kageyama getting all pissy after he sees Hinata talking to boys he doesn’t know. “Shut up! Like I remember everyone I’ve played against. ”

“And that’s exactly why you don’t have any friends, Kageyama-kun!”

Cue touch-mode.

5. And finally, this gay shit.

Sorry this wasn’t more exciting, but these are definitely moments that stick out in my mind the most!

Bonus- Derek’s favorite moment:

and I dont mean I lie about anything and pretend to be someone else; its more like this is where all my friends are, and the version portrayed of me here is the best version of me
and quite honestly I so badly want an actual life but the things stopping me are
-my body
-my lack of confidence
-and partially the fact that not a lot of people have common interestes, but thats ok.
and idk just can anyone relate

Walter Mitty: When are you going to take it?
Sean O'Connell: Sometimes I don’t. If I like a moment, for me, personally, I don’t like to have the distraction of the camera. I just want to stay in it.
Walter Mitty: Stay in it?
Sean O'Connell: Yeah. Right there. Right here. 

These lines were the first time in my life that I had words for this experience that I so often felt. These images were not taken by me, but are actually of me and shot by my best friend and last minute road trip partner Halle Russell. I never realized that other people could physically see when I find something I really like or a subject matter that truly captivates me. This was one of those moments that just so happened to be about 7,000 feet up. As of now, I’m sure those of you who follow me have noticed the tag #findingwaltermitty on most of my posts. I never planned to really give an explanation to what it stood for, and I’m still not going to say what most of it means because it’s something that I want to keep for myself, but it essentially means to pursue the places and events of your dreams instead of imagining them. To find your own meaning of life. To find your own ghost cat; a thing that makes you remove everything else from a moment besides yourself and your focus. To find yourself. Thank you so much for following my tumblr and/or instagram. It truly does mean the world to me to have people care about my passion and work.

Intermission time

So Val was talking about the season and saying how it was great win or lose. And he was talking about the other couples and he said, “We had James Hinchcliffe and Sharna Burgess.” So of course I screamed like a lunatic and waved my arms frantically from 3 rows back and VAL POINTED RIGHT AT ME and said, “Yeah! There you go! There you go!”

I did not imagine this! It actually happened! Best moment of my short life!!!

Headcanon: Jacob breaking up with his S/O

-In the first days he’d act as if he’d never cared about his S/O; like if someone asked him about how he feels, he’d respond: “Oh, I’ve never felt so free in my entire life, mate!”
-But he’s actually broken inside; he just doesn’t want to admit it
-And, since we know that Jacob is a goddamn dickhead, he’d even pay a prostitute to realease his anger
-Or just because he needs something that reminds him of the moments spent with his significant other
-So that wanker thinks fucking another one is the best way to do it
-He’d fill his pain with alchohol, no less
-In the Victorian setting, he’d go to a pub and drink hundreds of pints
-Then he gets drunk
-And I headcanon Jacob as someone who gets really touchy when he’s drunk, so the first bloke who accidentally shoves him can say bye bye to his face
-He’d do the same in a Modern setting, but he’d go to the disco and pretend to have fun
-But he’s actually flooded with memories
-When he hangs over in his bed, the first thing he’d do is searching for them
-Then he remembers
-He’d start crying
-More alchohol
-If someone teased him about his breakup with his S/O (ex. Blighters) he’d get absolutely furious
-That would be even worse if someone made fun of his beloved
-In the following days his sadness would be more evident
-He’d stay at home, he’d never go out, he’d decline any invitation from his friends or he wouldn’t even answer the telephone, he’d instead turn it off for a few days
-And Evie would surely get worried and go to visit his brother
-She’d be the only one Jacob is able to talk to about that
-Any try to comfort him would be useless, he just wants them again by his side
-He’d try to re-conquer them, of course
-He’d do anything
-And when I say anything, I mean ANYTHING
-And nodoby can resist that cinnamon roll
-Otherwise, if he found out that his S/O had another person, he’d first be so broken that he’d even beat their new love
-Because he misses them too much
-But Jacob would step back if that means his beloved’s happinnes, he just wants them to be happy, even without him
-He’d be hard for him to get used to it, but he always reminds himself that their well-being is what really matters

favorite psych moments: 5x10 “can i just say what i came here to say, please? i have a motorcycle. and you know what? it is the purest form of freedom that i have ever experienced. you zip through traffic, you park anywhere, you never have to take anyone to the airport, you certainly don’t have to help anyone move. easily the best purchase i’ve ever made in my life. and i have never regretted it. not for one second.”
“great. you love your motorcycle. is there a point to this?“

I gotta say Sun/Moon has been really great! It feels so much different than previous gens. Just feels like it has more life and the routes you travel are short but much more interesting.

The characters are more alive and interactive. The Professor is more fleshed out (has an actual life outside research), the rival although still overly friendly is nice too. Unlike XY/ORAS which made me feel guilty for always winning, Hau is amusingly passive aggressive about filling his team with Pokemon strong to your starter LMAO.

Team Skull are THE BEST. So fun. There’s so many little moments with them that give them such personality. Mah boi Guzma.

It also seems to be a little harder. My Pokemon are actually fainting now. I don’t know if that’s because everything is slow as shit so always gets hit first, but it’s a thing i have to worry about!

I was initially kinda down on the games because of how few new Pokemon there were that hadn’t already been announced (seriously Game Freak, STOP THAT), but there are plenty of oldies to make up for it. Also, the game runs much better on OG 3DS than the demo did. Double battles are a damn slideshow tho with 7-8 models on screen.

If they do remake DPP next it’s gonna hurt going back to that after SM. Bring on the (rumoured) Switch version! It’ll look soooo nice~

I was posting impression whilst playing on my Twitter. My Alolan Champion team!

Word Count: 3795


Author’s note: !!THIS IS A SUPERNATURAL CROSSOVER!! Guys don’t kill me not everything with this plot corresponds with the actual plot of the show, but I did try my best! I’m going to make a part two to this, so just get ready for it ;) 


P.s I should get bonus points for this gif alone, like are we serious?!


You’d always lead an eventful life, but nothing was quite as eventful as how things were now. You were a hunter, but before that you’d lived in Mystic Falls. Your friend group consisted of; The Salvatores, Matt, Elena, Bonnie, Caroline, Rick and Jeremy. They had all become a second family to you.

Life had gotten complicated in Mystic Falls, as it always did. Caroline had the twins; Elena and Bonnie were linked, Matt had left, and worst of all Damon was now possessed by whatever was in that vault. For months you researched with everyone, until you decided you’d need some outside help.

This meant you called two dear friends; Sam and Dean Winchester. Alaric had lead you onto his hunting lifestyle, and the Winchesters were legends. Off and on for months you’d hunted with them, mostly when life got too out of control in Mystic Falls and you needed to feel in control.

Hunting with the Winchesters made you feel like you were doing immediate good, leveling the good and bad of the world. You decided that alone you weren’t enough for your friends, and so you brought them in. When you originally asked they both laughed and Dean told you, “Of course princess, how could we not help?”.

Although you cared so deeply for the Winchesters, and even your friends, there was something you’d kept from both of them. You were in love with Damon Salvatore, hopelessly in love. Given his recent situation with Elena and the way things were forced to be left, it was something you’d kept completely quiet about.

Not even Caroline knew about it, and she was your best friend. You assumed people knew something might be up, but with what Enzo and Damon were going through it got put on the back burner. The one person who you could actually talk to about things was on a homicidal rampage.

All you could do was try to balance processing what was actually happening now, and what had happened with Damon. There was two essential moments with Damon that had changed things for the both of you, and one third essential moment that defined how your relationship was now.

The first moment had happened when you showed up to the Salvatore house late one night just getting back from a hunt. You knocked on the door to no answer and it slowly opened, putting yourself in hunter mode. Slowly entering the house with your gun risen you checked every room until you found someone in the living room.

There in the living room was Damon, a bottle of bourbon in hand, tipsy. You’d felt relieved, “Fuck Damon you scared the shit out of me! Where is everyone?”. Damon was all alone in the house no; Bonnie, Stefan, or Caroline. He smiled, “I’m all alone, shocker?”.

You rolled your eyes and sat down on the coffee table in front of him, “Not true, where did everyone go?”. It was weird to you that Damon was completely alone, anyone who truly knew him knew that it was bad to leave him alone with his thoughts. He raised the bottle to his lips, “Both couples are off together making the world a better place, on some double date”.

Grabbing the bottle from him you said, “Well you’re not alone anymore, I’m here”. You and Damon had gotten a lot closer recently, both confiding in each other. It didn’t help that he was flirtatious by nature. He raised an eyebrow, “I thought Dean had turned you into a whiskey kinda girl”.

Winking you playfully said, “Maybe I go both ways?”. Damon laughed, you actually got Damon to laugh at a time like this. Damon took the bottle back, “He’s had quite the influence on you, don’t go telling me you’re in love with the kid”.

You tried to play it down by deflecting, “Scared I’ll leave you all alone in the singles club?”. To further deflect you got up from where you’d been sitting and went to grab your phone from your bag. When you turned back around from grabbing your phone from the bag on the floor Damon was standing there right in front of you.

Trying to understand the situation better you thought to yourself that maybe he’d already finished a bottle or two before you got there, maybe he was drunk and not just tipsy. You stood there breathlessly until Damon finally spoke, “Maybe I’m scared that I’ll lose you to someone else”.

All you could think to say was, “Damon Salvatore I expected you to hold your liquor better, you’re drunk”. Some part of you deep down knew that you were just making excuses for him, but you weren’t ready to face that truth. Damon stood there his eyes darting from your lips to your eyes, “Maybe”. His body was about an inch from yours, extremely close.

Before saying anything else he used his superspeed to go to his room, his job confusing you for the night was done. In an attempt to shake it off you just went to your room and unpacked. When that didn’t work you decided on a shower, trying to wash away the guilt you’d felt.

Elena and Damon were an epic love, but part of you had always thought that if Elena truly loved Damon she would’ve done so from the beginning. You’d always felt that Damon’s love for her had come from a place of idolization and obsession, but these were things you kept entirely to yourself.

When your shower was done you tried to eradicate the guilt by writing in your journal to Elena, but you knew something was up when you stood there for awhile unable to write anything. Finally you wrote;

Dear Elena,

Life in Mystic Falls has become even more confusing, shocking right? Your absence is definitely taking a toll on everyone, and it has shaped certain people in certain ways. I remember the quote, “Distance makes the heart grow fonder”, but maybe distance just makes the heart adapt. I truly do miss you, everyone does, if you were here things would be totally different…

Writing down your thoughts made things a little clearer for you. You’d showed up late and unexpectedly while Damon was drunk and alone, he was just confused and lonely. There was nothing more to what had happened, or so you told yourself.

That had been the first essential moment, the first time Damon’s eyes lingered a little more, the first time his flirtations seemed to almost cross the line. He’d been so close to you, so close to possibly kissing you. When you woke up the next morning you went down into the kitchen, starving.

You were greeted by both Stefan and Caroline drinking coffee, a cute sight. Stefan smiled, “You’re back?”. Caroline jumped right from her seat hugging you as soon as she could. You’d missed them, “I wanted to surprise you guys last night but you were all gone”.

Stefan explained, “Oh well you know we all went to go see Rick and the twins, you know helping them get ready to move here”. Damon had told you otherwise, why had he lied? He could’ve easily gone, he wouldn’t have even been the only single one…You smiled, “Awe I miss the girls, I’ve missed all of you!”.

As you began to fix yourself a cup of coffee you were all then greeted by Damon, in only a towel. Caroline was the first to say something, “Feel like covering up Damon, or do you have a chippendales audition we don’t know about”.

You tried not to stare, but it was extremely hard, Damon looked so good. He fake laughed, “I see motherhood hasn’t ruined you’re wonderful sense of humor Caroline, what a relief?”. You were standing facing the counter reaching for a mug as you felt Damon standing behind you, leaning over you.

His arm reached over yours as he grabbed the mug you’d been reaching for, his damp body pressing against yours. Damon then proceeded to grab himself his own mug, and you turned to face him. He just grinned, “I’m thirsty, and also we could all see you were struggling”.

As you grabbed the mug from him and looked to Stefan and Caroline they both gave you questioning looks, but you were just as confused. Stefan asked, “Are you hungover or still drunk, brother?”. He was trying to make sense of why Damon so eagerly pressed himself against you, while only in a towel.

Damon smiled, “Neither, can’t a guy just be thirsty brother”. Usually Damon would always admit to being either drunk or hungover, that way no one made too much noise, but he had denied both. This made you question last night all over again, he had to be drunk to have acted how he did but if he was that drunk he’d be hungover.

Caroline moved things along, “So tell me about this case (y/n), what are Sam and Dean like?”. You automatically smiled thinking of the Winchesters, they’d become best friends to you. You laughed, “You know in their own ways they’re almost like Stefan and Damon, but also completely different”.

Stefan gave you a weird look so you explained, “Sammy is like you Stefan, he wants to save the world but he’s had his fair share of sadness and addiction…actually at one point he was even addicted to Demon blood but that’s a story for another day-”.

You continued, “And Dean loves his old car and rock music, just like Damon. Dean would also do anything to save his brother, including putting himself at risk”. The room laughed, that was clearly Damon, no risk was too great for saving Stefan.

Caroline winked, “So…has anything happened with either brother”. Stefan played along as he raised both eyebrows and opened his mouth awaiting your response. Before you could answer Damon said, “ Yes, please kiss and tell” as he leaned on the counter propping his head up with his hand.

You sighed, “Guys, nothing has happened with either brother, but I’m not complaining”. None of them seemed to believe your answer, and you wondered why. Caroline raised an eyebrow, “Come on (y/n), the hotel rooms…late night drives…near death experiences..”.

Again you told them, “No nothing happened, it’s not exactly sexy when you’re bashing in monsters heads guys”. They all thought about the picture you’d painted and agreed, all except Damon. Damon simply said, “Not a single thing has happened?”.

You laughed, “You all seem to think very highly of me, but no I’m not having sex with either brother unless stitching someone up after a hunt gone bad suddenly counts as penetration”. Damon seemed somewhat relieved by your answer, you’d convinced him.

Stefan explained, “Well I’m glad you’re hunting with them, you seem more confident!”. That was true, when your own life was on the line you needed to be secure with your decision making. Caroline added, “Totally, I’m loving this new (y/n). It’s like you’re evolving into this badass, but you were already a badass…kinda”.

Their kind words warmed your heart, “Thanks guys, hunting has really made me feel more in control of life..in most aspects”. If only hunting had cured the fact that Damon could still change your entire mood with one look or touch. Damon was done with the conversation, “Well, I think it’s time I get changed any longer and I’d have to charge”.

With a wink and a grin Damon retreated upstairs leaving you Stefan and Caroline. The second Damon was out of earshot Caroline let out a breath she’d been holding in, “Okay (y/n) what was that?!”. You’d hoped that Damon wasn’t secretly listening.

You took a sip of your coffee, “Honestly I don’t know, does anyone ever fully understand why Damon acts how he acts?”. Trying to downplay the entire situation, yet again, you decided to generalize how Damon always acts. To your surprise Stefan said, “I understand you there (y/n), but that was a little weird even for him”.

Caroline exclaimed, “SEE, even Stefan agrees and he has years of experience with Damon!”. You weren’t about to tell them about last night because that would just complicate the entire situation further. So instead you simply said, “Maybe he just wanted some coffee and I was in his way?”.

Caroline shook her head, “So he presses his wet and half naked body against yours?! Elena is my bestfriend but it’s been a long time and maybe he needs something…someone…”. Oh god, this was not helping all the guilt you’d already felt.

You rolled your eyes, “Guys Damon loves Elena, and I would never be able to fill that void for him”. Two of the most sensible people you knew were agreeing with one of your most unsensible thoughts, Damon might be ready to move on from Elena.

Stefan put his hands up defensively, “Look (y/n) I’m hinting a little bit of guilt here where there shouldn’t be any. Damon is his own man and we all know that Elena could realize how much time changes someone. Would she really want Damon to be alone and sad while she’s gone, or would she want him to take chances and really live”.

This was a lot, “You’re both right okay…it was weird of him! BUT it’s not like he’s come out and said anything to me okay? This whole topic makes me feel weird if I’m going to be honest…I love you both dearly but maybe you’re just thinking too much out of a situation”.

They both kinda just raised their shoulders, not fully agreeing with you but respecting your desire to leave the topic alone. You put your now empty cup of coffee in the sink, “I need to go research something I promised Sammy I would okay? Come find me later and we can all hangout because I need some quality time with my bestfriends!”.

They both smiled and there was something you could all agree on. As you went upstairs to your room, the second essential moment was about to happen. You walked in on Damon sitting in your bed, thankfully clothed. He smiled, “We should talk”.

There were three simple words that when put together could send shivers down your spine. You tried to remain calm, “Okay, you start”. You weren’t about to address anything without knowing how Damon felt first, your worst nightmare was that he wouldn’t feel the same as you.

While waiting for him to talk you went to your desk pulling out your computer attempting to start research, but before you could start anything Damon was right behind you as he pushed down the top of your computer. As you turned to face him he explained, “This is an important conversation, need your full attention”.

You just nodded your head and Damon sat back onto your bed, and you followed sitting next to him. He began, “Look I know I’ve been acting strange recently, but I’ve been going through some strange things…”. Here it goes, he’s going to explain that it all meant nothing.

Then he turned to face you, “It’s just been hard because you’ve been bringing out these feelings in me and I-”. His words shocked you, god were Caroline and Stefan right? He continued, “We’ve been getting a lot closer lately and last night I pushed things, but I wanted you to know that it wasn’t the alcohol”.

You were shocked, “Then what was it?”. You’d thought you’d said that in your head but nope you’d actually said it. He bit his lip, “I think I’m starting to fall for you (y/n), and I know what you’re going to say-”.  You couldn’t help but finish his sentence, “What about Elena?”.

Damon explained, “Look I love Elena, but it’s just she’s gone and I thought I could wait things out but I just can’t and then you came along…and waiting seemed so much harder”. This was all so much to handle at one time. You tried to process things, “Damon are you sure? What if you’re just lonely and I try to fill this void but I fail-”.

You felt his hand on your cheek and your thoughts stopped flowing, “Fail (y/n)? How could you fail when you’re the reason I’ve felt alive again. Damon Salvatore always knows what he wants, and I want you”. You couldn’t believe what you were hearing, was this a dream?

You were still unsure, “But, why me?”. Damon laughed again, he thought to himself about how hard you were making all this. He looked at you with love in his eyes, “See that’s the best part, you don’t even realize how amazing you are”.

The mixture of how he was looking at you and what he was saying caused you to bite your lip. Then he smirked, “See, little things like that just drive me crazy…”. You went to say something but a new look had taken over Damon’s face. Just like last night his eyes once again darted from your eyes to your lips.

This time, however, you just went for it. Leaning forward your lips finally touched him, fireworks went off all over your body. You’d almost forgotten how long you’d waited for this moment, and it was more amazing than you’d ever thought it could be. This kiss was soon over as Damon pulled back, “Fuck…I’ve waited for that for so long”.

You slowly opened your eyes and smiled, “Me too”. Damon seemed to be restraining himself, “I don’t want to rush things with you (y/n), I want to take my time and enjoy it”. That seemed like a smart thing to do, rushing all of this could easily fuck things up, so you agreed.

He got up but said, “Don’t think I’m not ready for this (y/n), I just always rush into things and I want to take my time with you”. He kissed you on the forehead before leaving your room. Within a second he was right back in front of you, “Just maybe one more kiss”.

Again his lips were on yours, but this time his hands rested on your hips pulling you closer towards him. Once it was over you giggled, “This is going to be hard isn’t it?”. He pressed his head to yours, “You have no idea, but there’s so much to deal with now and I don’t want what we have getting lost in that”.

It was true, “I feel the same way Damon, and keeping this a secret could be fun”. You winked and Damon did his classic Damon smirk. That was the start of things for the both of you, your secret relationship took off from there. The second essential moment had happened, you and Damon were secretly together.

After that moment everything was a whirlwind: everyone had been marked, Bonnie had become the new hunter, and you were all scrambling trying to save each other. In the end what happened was the last thing you wanted to happen, whatever was in the vault was now in Damon.

You heart was broken, but it had to remain a secret. The last defining moment of your relationship had happened while Damon was in the vault, but you’d thought it had happened directly before. While everything had been going down at the armory you were right alongside fighting with everyone.

Caroline had explained that Stefan and Damon were planning on going into the vault, and you automatically rushed after them. Luckily you’d caught them while they were still looking for the last body to destroy, and you were able to pull Damon aside and have a private moment.

You were the first to say something, “I’m not going to stop you, I know you need to do this but I want you to know that-”. Damon took your face in both hands as he looked at you with love in his eyes, “I love you, always have and I always will”.

You laughed, “Fuck Salvatore you took the words out of my mouth, but I love you too”.  Damon softly placed his lips on yours, taking his time with the kiss. For a moment you were both lost in the moment, it made an extremely messed up situation feel okay even if for only a second. When the kiss was over he told you, “You can get back at me for stealing your moment when all this is over”.

With a wink he was gone, leaving you standing there hoping that he would actually come back. You walked back out of the armory joining Caroline, and together you both hoped for the best. It felt like forever until finally Stefan came out. You were confused, “Where’s Damon?”.

Stefan calmly explained, “He went into the vault alone, but don’t worry he’ll be out in a second, I think we can actually do this”. Both Stefan and Caroline seemed extremely optimistic, but you couldn’t rest until you knew Damon was safe.

The defining moment of your relationship hadn’t happened when you and Damon had finally confessed your love, but rather while Damon was alone in the vault. He was almost out until he heard a familiar voice, Elena.

She sounded so real, “Damon, don’t leave me”. He couldn’t believe what he was hearing, and suddenly every bad thought he’d ever had flooded his mind at once. Her voice pulled him from his thoughts, “Damon how could you?”.

His voice was shaky, “How could I what?”. He began to follow her voice, getting closer and closer to the vault again. She continued, “You left me, you’d promised you’d wait for me Damon but now you’re with (y/n)”.

Elena’s voice sounded so hurt and Damon was put in a trance. He pleaded, “Elena, please I didn’t mean to hurt you how can I fix this? If I could just explain things, you’d understand why”. The closer he got to the vault the louder her voice became, he believed she was really in there.

She seemed so close, “Join me in here Damon, join me and then we can talk”. Everything else was abandoned, he needed to explain to Elena why he’s chosen to be with you. He entered the vault, but all he found was something evil.

This evil thing possessed him, and possessed Enzo when he went in after him. Damon had just wanted Elena to know that he still loved her, but in a different way. Your Damon was now gone, what was left behind was not him. The last defining moment of your relationship had happened, and you weren’t even there to be apart of it.  

[Matt, talking about how tabletop RPGs are coming back majorly, people realizing it’s not some cultish thing]
Matt: –And so we’re like slowly bringing the rest of the world in. It’s really fun.
Cameraman in the audience: One of us!
Matt: [cackles] Yeah. Maybe they weren’t that wrong… Maybe this is the best kind of cult you can join.
[audience laughs and cheers]
Matt: Which! Which, as somebody on Twitter posted a picture a few days ago. Somebody actually built a shrine to Taliesin and Percy… with like candles and dice arranged in like some sort of a glyph pattern, like trying to bless their dice for better rolls and Taliesin said, “This is it. Everything in my life has been to bring me to this moment. I have a cult.”
Matt: Which, knowing Taliesin, as some of you have gotten to know him better over the past year, is that’s essentially the truth. Not at all embellishing on that.

I looked through this blog, and a lot of times the tip you give people who want to look more masculine is to fill in their eyebrows. And I want to look masculine, but I've never in my life done anything with make-up. I haven't got a clue about it. So could you please explain what filling in eyebrows actually means, and how you do that? Thanks a lot, and you are awesome!

I’m on mobile so I can’t link you to the video I did about it the moment, but basically take a thing of eye shadow somewhat close to your natural hair color and take the little brush/pad thing across your eyebrow until you reach the desired thickness. I’ve had the best results when I do it running the brush in the opposite way the hair grows. If it looks too dark or neat, use your finger to rub at it until you find something you’re happy with. You probably don’t have any eye shadow, but I used to use my mom’s when I first started, or you could have a friend buy you some at a dollar store if you’re not comfortable getting it yourself. I hope that helps!
