after-the-letter

Okay so @sarahkriswugirl requested a mildly angsty/ mildly smutty one shot

Summary: (from spencer’s point of view) Spencer sends you a letter after you break up with him explaining what his type is.

Word count: 435

Warnings: Smut is vaguely mentioned, heartbreak, unrequited love

My type is unexpected.

Women who pop into my life out of nowhere. Women who are no good for me.

Women who are broken and damaged and yet are strong and resilient. Women who have been beaten down by god himself and yet stand tall and are trusting, nurturing and kind.

My type is women with a passion, a fire that burns deep within them, so bright and enduring it radiates of their bodies.

My type is women who don’t seem to love me as much as I love them.

My type is women who are quick to turn things on me,blame me,hate me one second and then throw themselves at me the next.

My type is women who let me in for a quick fuck and shut me out when I ask how their day went.

My type is women who tear the buttons of my shirt when they’re so in need they can barely contain themselves.

My type is women whose skin is set ablaze by my hands roaming their bodies freely, but turns ice cold when I try to hold their hand.

My type is women whose hands I pin above their head as they push my face down to their core.

My type is women whose hands pull at my hair while I’m in between their legs, knuckles turning white. Women whose broken moans fill the room, loud enough for her neighbors to hear.

My type is women who let out a choked whine when I slip inside them without warning. Women whose hair feels like silk in my hands as I take them from behind. Women who stutter while they beg me to go faster, harder, deeper.

My type is women who moan someone else’s name when I make them shudder in ecstasy, make their eyes roll to the back of their head.

My type is women who leave scratch marks down my back and litter my body with hickeys.

My type is women who scream at me to “ get the fuck out” when I tell them I love them for the first time.

My type is women with tragic back stories that I have yet to unlock.

My type is women who love to play in the rain and sleep with their socks on. Women who push me away when they’re awake but hug me closer while they sleep. Women who love it when I play with their hair.

My type is women whose previous personal heartbreak caused mine.

My type?

Beautiful tragedies like you.

A/n: okay so this is hella short I just really hope y'all enjoy like and reblog if you want lmao.

Growing Up

We faked it until it became standard. It was reprimanded until thinking about it was slandered. That little glimmer of hope in a tiny room. Smothered by lines and letters after the slaughter damned to never bloom.

Practical ideas overwhelmed public opinion. So much so that starched ideas and permanently pressed emotions take dominion.

A man and a child sat on a bench in the middle of summer still. The only sound between them were the creeks from the playground and the wind with a whistle that was shrill. The child kicking his feet and the man stoic and chill.

I suppose it was between the stoutness of the creaking swing and the minor slivers of malcontent that the man didn’t observe the child enjoying himself.

I also surmise that the man hadn’t noticed the child’s outstretched hand so it took him by surprise. So it became a moment between one who was wrestles and one who was wise.

The child started to explain “I found this ship and it’s too big for a captain alone. I saw that you were over here just playing in your phone, and I couldn’t help but realize that you looked kind of alone. So off to Neverland I want to go, you can come with me and have a new home. Take my hand and you will be my first mate under a flag with a skull and crossbone.

So I end this with a riddle, so baffle me this question here. Who’s more grown up between an adult with reservations and a child without fear.

i can’t get over how Extra™ the production of Sense8 is

they honestly seem to do everything in the most unnecessary over-complicated and expensive way possible, can’t say the end result isn’t worth it (best show i’ve ever watched) but like:

- they film everything 99% of the time on location, season 2 took 8 months of traveling around the world to get done, the main cast didn’t go home for 4 months straight at some point, they also hire local actors and crews

- talking about traveling, that scene where capheus visits riley when she’s on a plane to iceland? yup, you guessed it, they casually filmed that while they are actually on the plane to iceland

- they also don’t separate, everyone goes together from place to place even if some actors only have a few lines in one location # the sense8 travelling circus

- honestly just the way ‘visiting’ works is so extra, they have to shoot the exact same scene up to 5 times all over the world and then edit it to together in a coherent way, imagine how hard it’s for an actor to repeat a scene in the exact same way they did it 3 months ago in a completely different environment and mood, kudos to them

- this entire post about how the english dialogue for the not english speaking characters is structured will blow your mind

- riley’s opening scene when she’s playing at a club? that is an actual club with normal people not actors, they didn’t know tuppence wasn’t an actual dj, they had her go and pretend to dj in between two actual djs

- that applies for everything else really, if something can be done for reals they do it for reals, you know the scene at the end of season 2 were they all get electrocuted (aka the most stressful thing to watch ever), well, they got themselves electrocuted for reals, no, i’m not shitting you, they had to hire experts to make sure they didn’t accidentally kill themselves or sth, i love this cast but i’m also really concerned

- the wrestling match lito, hernando and dani attend was a real match with a real crowd

- also both pride scene were filmed at actual pride, the brazil pride was improvised except for lito’s speech which lana wrote on their way there, because they found out very last minute that they could actually fit it in the schedule

- the way the cast talk about the show sounds like they’re talking about their newborn baby sometimes like: ‘wolfgang is the biggest gift i’ve ever received in my career’, doona owns more sense8 merch than any fan in the world, freema and jamie crying at the table read when they got to amanita and nomi’s engagement scene as if they were actually getting married, brian’s letter after the cancelation and all their tweets about it, honestly this entire video of them basically talking about how much they love each other is the most extra and adorable thing ever

- the ‘sharing’ scenes are mostly done through stunts and not post-production, the actors actually jump in and out of frame changing places, instead of you know, just editing the scene together afterwards

- they got fined filming the ‘sex-nic’ part of the orgy for public nudity, just sense8 things

- bollywood dance scene? all shot in one take, for no reason other than make it more complicated lol

- the pretty underwater scenes from the christmas special? they went to malta EXCLUSIVELY to shoot those, what?, 3 minutes?, i’d say that was the most expensive montage ever but the fine for public nudity was $10k so idk

- talking about orgies, kind of unrelated but i’m mentioning it anyway bc i can’t believe them, apparently the cast casually goes through life organizing netflix talent orgies? life imitates art?

- they also were in scotland for 9 days for some reason, even though only like 10 minutes of the actual show happen in scotland (i’m guessing this is what happens when u double their budget for s2 lmao) 

- max riemelt dubs wolfie in german, also the dude that dubbed V from V for Vendetta dubs The Guy in french, if u gotta be extra don’t forget the details i guess

i’m probs missing a million things so feel free to add more lol

tl,dr: Sense8 is Extra™ and I Love It™

EDIT: apparently the page with the interview where jamie talked about the electrocution scene was changed? if you want proof that i didn’t pull it out of my ass check this thread

EDIT 2: some more that i forgot:

- they celebrate their characters birthday, bc that’s normal and stuff

- lana has a tattoo that says ‘homosensorium’

- they celebrated the s2 wrap up w (brian’s words) ‘the most over the top fireworks display I’ve ever seen’ while ‘what’s up’ played in the background

- in the ‘let’s make everything real for The Art’ department: the scene in berlin on new year’s eve? yup, that was also shoot during //actual new years eve//

Literally just all the sexual things Alexander Hamilton sent to John Laurens


“I love you.”

This one is pretty self explanatory. Men were much more intimate back in the 1700′s, forming bonds that seem very ~gay~ in today’s light. Homosexuality wasn’t a very understood thing back then because rigid moral codes and censured education prevented people from learning more about sexuality.

 But Alexander Hamilton knew.

 He grew up on an island where ‘Sodomites’ (gay people) were dumped and  allowed to mingle with the island population. Alex knew that there was a certain zone of interactions between men that went from being merely friendly to sexual. He clearly steps into the bounds of sexual while fully realizing it.

“In drawing my picture, you will no doubt be civil to your friend; mind you do justice to the length of my nose and don’t forget, that I [- - - - - -].”

Ahhhhhhhhh my son Alex, could you be more explicit? Alex here is obviously referring to his something else (you know) with the knowledge that John Lauren’s knows the size. This sentence right here is basically just one long ;).

 “Your friend” seems to be written teasingly, as if they both know how far from friends they are.

And we can only guess how dirty Alex got in those last six  CUT OUT words.

“Dear Boy” [sent by John Laurens]

John laurens calls his wife his ‘dear girl’, and here he calls Alex his ‘dear boy’.  Moreover, Laurens did not call any other man he ever wrote to as his ‘dear boy’. Laurens seems to see Alex as on the same level, if not higher, as his own wife.

“Did I mean to show my wit? If I did, I am sure I have missed my aim. Did I only intend to [frisk]? In this I have succeeded, but I have done more. I have gratified my feelings, by lengthening out the only kind of intercourse now in my power with my friend.”

This phrase right here I unfortunately do not see a lot when people talk about Alex and John’s letters. This, to me, is one of the most explicit. “Wit” also mean one’s you know what (here I give a nod to the Ravenclaw moto), so Hamilton’s saying he was pretty much just messing around with John the last letter he sent. This is the only sort of “intercourse” he is able to have with John, as they are both so far apart. He is incapable of ‘sexual’ intercourse because of their distance, so he feels he must, in the 18th century way, sext.

“I would invite you after the fall to Albany to be witness to the final consummation.”

As you might have already guessed, Alex is inviting John to a threesome on his wedding night. The idea that Alex feels so at ease inviting John to a threesome with his wife suggests they have already had something going for a long time now. 

“But like a jealous lover, when I thought you slighted my caresses, my affection was alarmed and my vanity piqued. I had almost resolved to lavish no more of them upon you and to reject you as an inconstant and an ungrateful –”

Here Alex compares himself to John’s lover, and a jealous one at that. John seems to be shying away from Alex’s bawdiness, as if realizing how strange their relationships is in retrospect. Alex is scrambling to hang on to him, even though he knows well what are and what happens to Sodomites. He would do anything for John while knowing the consequences. And John is too afraid to join him. And who the hell knows what the last word was.

“And believe me, I am lover in earnest,”

*cough cough* looks like John knows exactly what happens when Alex’s feeling frisky.

“She [Eliza] loves you a l'americaine not a la francoise.”

The French were renowned for their relaxed stance on extramarital love affairs, while Americans were more Puritan-minding and thought love affairs only should happen in church-sanctioned marriages. Thus Eliza has an a l’americaine love of John Laurens, rather than an a la francoise.

“You will be pleased to recollect in your negotiations that I have no invincible antipathy to the maidenly beauties & that I am willing to take the trouble of them upon myself.”

*cough* this sentence is a bit confusing, and could be taken a few ways. What I infer from this is that Alexander Hamilton is willing, and John knows this, to assume an air of femininity because he finds no fault with it. It was commonly noted by people who wrote of Hamilton that he was very feminine in comparison with other men of his day. Alex’s femininity seems to please John, the topic even having been discussed between the two in ‘negotiations’.

“My ravings are for your own bosom” Alex desperately misses Laurens’ intimate contact in a way that, in my opinion, could never be mistaken as simply friendship. Alex literally wants to be held by John. How fucking heartbreaking is that.

“Yrs for ever”

Ok, this one isn’t sexual, but I had to add it because it is so heartbreaking. This was Alex’s last farewell note to John. That is, if he even received it. He died shortly after Alex sent the letter; whether he read the farewell or not is all lost to history. Alex loved John so much, despite the fact that both already had a wife. He would have always loved him, even if they had grown apart…

That’s it folks: time for me to cry.

A New Jersey woman spoke out against Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen, so he retaliated by telling her boss

  • A New Jersey woman, who is part of an organization pressuring GOP Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen to hold town halls, resigned from her day job after Frelinghuysen personally sent a letter to a member of her employer’s board, ratting her out for her political activism. )WNYC)

And so it begins 💘

One of the many ways I like to imagine how Draco and Harry started dating…

  • running into each other at a Ministry function, one year after the war
  • Draco trying to be as haughty as ever, but not being able to meet Harry’s eye
  • Harry inquiring how Draco and his mother have been doing  
  • Draco giving clipped answers, until he blurts how grateful he is to Harry for speaking at their trial
  • Draco blushing as Harry smiles at him
  • Draco fidgeting with his robes as he waits for Harry to come back with new drinks
  • retreating to the balcony, because it’s too noisy and people keep interrupting them
  • Draco admitting he kept up with Harry’s every move through the papers after his fifth glass of champagne
  • Harry giggling and playfully patting Draco on the back
  • Draco noticing how Harry’s hand lingers on his shoulder before he quickly pulls it away
  • Harry casually asking Draco if he has any plans the following night
  • Draco staring at Harry when he suggests they meet for dinner
  • Draco freaking out when he gets home (Is this a date? He didn’t say it was. But it’s dinner! Will he even remember it tomorrow? He was quite tipsy. Oh! *falls over while trying to undress himself* I seem to be a bit tipsy myself.”)
  • Draco chewing on his lip when he receives an owl the next morning
  • Draco grinning as he writes his reply

The first date

  • Harry blushing when they enter the restaurant, because he realises how very romantic this place is
  • Harry making a mental note to scold Hermione for suggesting a place like this for his first date with Draco
  • Draco being completely impassive until he can hide his face behind the menu card to lose his shit silently
  • sitting in awkward silence, avoiding each other’s eyes
  • Harry bursting into laughter and pointing out the ridiculousness of the situation
  • Draco’s lips twitching in response
  • Harry noticing how soft Draco’s face looks in the candlelight and not being able to look away the whole evening
  • both refusing to let the other pay, so they split the bill
  • Harry walking Draco home
  • shy glances as they arrive at Draco’s house
  • Harry being unsure if it would be too forward to kiss Draco after their first date
  • Draco wishing Harry would give him some kind of signal so he can throw his arms around him
  • Harry mumbling something about having a good time
  • Draco stretching out his hand on impulse to bid Harry goodnight
  • Harry laughing, but also looking a bit disappointed
  • Harry taking Draco’s hand, but then enveloping him in a very awkward embrace
  • Draco closing the door behind him and leaning against it, his heart beating fast

After the first date

  • Draco finding excuses to owl Harry, because he’s not sure how to ask for a second date
  • Draco snapping after the eleventh letter (of the day) and bluntly asking Harry to dinner on Friday
  • Ron asking Harry what happened when he hears a loud crash in Harry’s office
  • Harry absentmindedly pulling out his wand to mend the chair he just broke in his enthusiasm

The second date

  • Draco getting flustered when Harry appears on his doorstep, holding flowers
  • Draco trying to hide his eagerness
  • trading playful insults on the way to the restaurant
  • Harry holding the door open for Draco
  • Harry setting the chair in place for Draco
  • Draco mocking Harry about it, but secretly loving it
  • Harry’s hand slowly creeping across the table
  • Harry trying to act nonchalant when his fingertips brush Draco’s
  • Draco getting so nervous, he makes a weird gurgling sound while drinking his wine
  • Harry throwing caution to the wind and boldly taking Draco’s hand
  • Draco letting out a little gasp when he feels Harry’s warm skin on his
  • eating with one hand because neither wants to let go of the other
  • neither commenting on that
  • Draco grudgingly letting Harry pay (“Under the condition that I pay for the next one!”)
  • Harry’s lips stretching into a grin (“So there’s going to be a third date?”)
  • Draco blushing hard (“Oh. Well, if that was too presumptuous of- *Harry giggling* Oh, shut up, Potter!”)
Imagine - Zach breaks up with you

It has been exactly one month since you and Zach have broken up, and it was over something extremely stupid. It was over an argument that the two of you had. An argument over the fact that you and Bryce were “too friendly with each other”. Clearly Zach had gone mad. Because you would never cheat on him, and certainly not with Bryce Walker. That guy was a complete asshole and a pervert. If anything, he was always flirting with you, even though you were dating one of his best friends. But you had no intention what so ever to cheat on Zach with Bryce. You loved Zach, you truly did. And he loved you, but clearly not as much as you though because he couldn’t see how it was not you being “too friendly” with Bryce but the other way around.

It has been a painful month for you after the break up. You and Zach were perfect for each other, in your eyes and in the eyes of most of the students at Liberty high. You two were the “IT” couple. Always the talk of the school on how cute the two of you were together and how others wished that they had what you and Zach had. Why did things have to end between the two of you. You remember the night where everything went downhill, like it was yesterday…

“I’m not ‘all over Bryce’ Zach! That’s ridiculous!” You yell.

You and Zach were sitting in your living. Your parents were gone for the weekend on some business trip and Zach had promise to keep you company in the time being. So he had come over to your house so the two of you could cuddle and watch some movies. But things turned south pretty quickly…

“Sure you’re not.” Zach scoffs “You two are always flirting with each other! And right in front of me too!” He booms out.

“You know I’m really surprised that you haven’t left me for him yet, slut…” He breathes out the last word that you nearly missed what he said.

But it’s too late. You heard it. And you have never been more humiliated and furious in your life.

You look at him straight in the eyes, seething, and slap him. Hard. Right across his face.

“You know what!? Fuck you Zachary!” You spit out. “I fucking hate you! Get out!”

Zach scoffs and then says with malice, “Sure, I’ll leave, but know this, we’re fucking done (Y/N). I don’t even know why I went out with such a slut like you in the first place.” Then Zach walks out your door.

Goodbye, my godness.

Today has been confirmed that Ymir, our godness, is dead. She was eaten by Marcel’s brother, Galliard, when she arrived to Marley’s country and after that she wrote love’s letter to Historia. An other beautiful character dead again. It will be painfull follow the anime and see her alive, because she never will be with us again. She was a character who surffed a lot since she was little because she carried to her shoulders the weight of a name which changed the entire world. When story avanced, she started to like me a lot and anime makes me love her more. She was beautiful, she did jokes of bad tastes, she was abrupt, people treats her like she was insensitive, she doesn’t fall good to people, she was inconsiderated and carefree. Also she killed some people. But in the bottom of her heart she was capable to love and help others. For example, when she transform herself in Utgard’s Castle to save Historia and others, even she showed tenderness with Connie when he gave her the knife to fight. Even she left behind Historia to go with Reiner and Berthold knowing that, probably, she won’t see her anymore to protect her, because Ymir loved her. She decided live her life with any arrangement since It was given her a second chance to live, a rebirth. She acepted herself. She only did what she wanted, she lived how she wanted and she loved who she wanted without care what others thought. She only wanted to do other people happy, even if she would have die. Ymir taugh us we must live with pride in our hearts, no matter what. We must acept ourselfs and give to us a second chance. So thanks Isayama, to create a character like her. All of us will miss her. Goodbye, our strong and beautiful godness.

Horror in Room 1046 

Just after lunch time on 2 January, 1935, a young man entered the Hotel President in Kansas City, Missouri. He had no luggage and asked if he could have a room for the night. He signed his name as “Roland T. Owen” was given the key for room 1046. Shortly afterwards, the maid arrived to clean the room. As she opened the door, she found the man sitting on the bed in the dark. Even though it was still light outside, he had tightly drawn the blind. She recalled that the man seemed somewhat afraid or nervous. As she was cleaning, he put on his coat and left the room, asking her to leave the door unlocked because he was expecting a friend to arrive later on. At approximately 4PM, the maid arrived at room 1046 to leave fresh towels for the evening. The man was lying on the bed with a note beside him which read: “Don, I will be back in fifteen minutes. Wait.

The following morning, the maid arrived once again to clean the room. Once again, she found the man sitting in the dark. As she cleaned around him, he took a call from “Don” and told him he wasn’t going to get any breakfast. Before she left, he began to question her about her role within the hotel and what duties she was to carry out. When she returned later on in the afternoon with more fresh towels, an unidentified male grunted that they didn’t need any. Later on in the afternoon, another guest reported hearing a woman’s voice coming from room 1046 and relayed that she sounded angry. At around 11pm that night, a man driving downtown saw a man running down the street in pants and a shirt - strange clothing choice for the brisk winter air, he though. The man asked the driver, who he initially mistook as a taxi driver, if he could give them a lift to somewhere that he could flag down a taxi. He noted that the oddly dressed man had a large wound on his arm and looked in a bad shape.

Back at the Hotel President the next morning, it was noticed that the phone in room 1046 was left off the hook. A bellboy was sent up to inform the guest. When nobody answered, he used a master key to enter the room. At first glance, he saw blood smeared over the walls and over the floor. In the bathroom, “Roland T. Owen” was on his knees with rope tied around his neck and wrists. He had been repeatedly stabbed and bludgeoned across the head. Still clinging to life, he said he had “fell against the bathtub.” He died later on that night. An investigation of the room turned up nothing. Not one piece of clothing could be found nor any complimentary hygiene products or towels. It was soon discovered that the man had given a fake name, thus his body was displayed at a local funeral home in the hopes that somebody could recognise him. The man who had picked up the bewildered hitchhiker the night before recognised him immediately. Multiple people from separate establishments, including other hotels and even a wrestling arena, came forward to identify him. However, each person that identified him said that he gave a different name.

As the weeks passed, the man remained unidentified, even though many could identify him by appearance. He was intended to be buried in the city’s cemetery for the unidentified but as locals caught wind of this, police received an anonymous letter from somebody who asked them to hold the burial off until they would be able to forward a hefty amount for a decent burial and funeral. Days later, the money came in and he was buried in Memorial Park Cemetery. A local florist also received an anonymous donation for a bouquet of flowers that were signed off with “Love Forever - Louise.” Other than a couple of investigators working on the case, nobody attended the funeral. 

The case remained cold until 1936, when Eleanor Ogletree read about the murder in a magazine. She believed the description of the man sounded like her brother, 17-year-old Artemus Ogletree, who had been missing since 1934. The family had assumed he was okay because in spring of 1935 - months after “Roland T. Owen” died - they had received several typewritten letters from Artemus, claiming he was sailing to Europe. The family were initially suspicious of these letters because Artemus couldn’t type. A few months after these letters, they received a phone call from a man who told them that Artemus had saved his life in Egypt and that he was happily married to a woman he had met in his travels.

The Ogletree family were shown a photo of the murder victim. It was Artemus, they unfortunately confirmed. His identification led to even more questions. Why had he used so many fake names? Who was the woman in his room? Who was Don? What happened to him the evening he was picked up by the driver, looking dishevelled? Who paid for his funeral? Who was Louise? Who sent the letters to his family? And finally, who killed him and why?

anonymous asked:

Awww, young Kirk's teary reaction to that letter from Spock would just be the best thing ever! (Ps I loooove your stuff so much!!! It rocks my socks off. Such beautiful art <3)

Y’all: Kid Jim would probably cry after getting that letter from Spock

You looked down, not being able to keep eye contact. Steve’s brow furrowed, he stopped chewing, leaning forward.

“What?”

You shook your head, taking in a shaky breath. “I—I was just wondering if you…” You paused, looked up and then back to your plate again. “Do you still have Bucky’s letters?”

Not a corvid to cross.

Something There

Overview: Four years have passed since the war and you and Draco are now soon to be married. But as his insecurities catch up to him, he begins to wonder why someone like you would ever want to be with a former Death Eater like him. For who could ever learn to love a beast?

Word Count: About 1,400.

Warning(s): Some fluffy fluff.

Note: Draco x Reader Beauty and the Beast retelling loosely based off of “Something There” (see below).


Draco watched as you twirled around the kitchen of the Malfoy Manor, a sterling silver spoon in hand. In a cozy robe and pajamas, he thought you were quite a sight. His favorite sight in the world, nevertheless.

“One more week,” you sang. “That’s seven more days until we’re married.” After placing your dishes in the sink, you sat down at the dining table next to Draco. “Can you imagine?”

“Seeing as we already live together,” said he, gesturing to the vast interior of the manor, “I quite easily can.”

You nudged him with your elbow. “It’s still not the same. Soon, we’ll be Mr. and Mrs. Draco Malfoy.” You paused. “Has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?”

Although he replied with a nod, Draco couldn’t help but frown at the sound of his last name. What was once a word he flaunted about and held to the highest esteem had turned into a scarlet letter after the Second Wizarding War.

He furrowed his eyebrows, dragging his spoon along the rim of his bowl. Soon, you would bear the name Malfoy. Malfoy. A name tarnished and sent to Azkaban and back as nothing more than a patch on his parents’ clothing.

And the more he thought about it, the more Draco realized that wasn’t a burden he wanted to share with you.
__________

A day passed and Draco still had an unsettling feeling in his stomach. It wasn’t uncommon for him to wear long-sleeved shirts, but now he could hardly bare glancing at his Dark Mark.

Is this what being a Malfoy meant?

“Draco,” you said, climbing into the bed as you stared at his back, “what’s the matter?”

He tucked his hand under a pillow. “Nothing, love. Just tired, is all.”

“I don’t believe you.” He felt the mattress shift ever so slightly as you drew nearer to him. “Before all else, Draco, I am your friend. Before being your fiancée, your girlfriend, your anything– I’m still just your best friend.” You peered over at him, his eyes focused on the wall. “So why on earth would you expect me to believe that lie?”

Sighing, Draco turned on his other side to face you, propping himself up on his arm. He noticed the way you scrunched your nose in concern, a wrinkle appearing between your eyebrows.

“Please, tell me what’s wrong, babe,” you pleaded. Your face softened as you examined his tired eyes, bringing your hand to brush against the cold skin of his face. “Is it the wedding? Are we going into this too soon?”

“No, of course not. It’s not–” He took a deep breath, unsure of what he wanted to say. Draco captured your hand in his, pulling it near his chest. He stroked the calloused pad of his thumb against your knuckles absentmindedly. “If I had to describe you in one word, it would be perfection.”

You quirked an eyebrow, unsure of how to react. “I’m no where near perfect, but– Don’t try to change the subject.”

He let out an indignant chuckle. “I wasn’t finished. I only meant…Just look at yourself and then look at me.”

“I see a witch and a wizard.”

“Funny,” said Draco with a straight face. “But really look. Because when I look at you, I see a compassionate, intelligent woman who fights for what’s right.” His eyes darted to his clothed forearm, the black mark almost visible through his white night shirt. “When I look at myself, I see is a monster. A beast. A coward, at best.”

You stayed silent, Draco’s hand still in yours. “I think your perception is tainted,” you said, withdrawing your hand from his to gently push back at his sleeve. He caught sight of a sliver of his Dark Mark, causing him to wince. Draco saw you reaching for a black marker next to your journal on the nightstand.

You uncapped it, taking hold of his hand.

“What are you–”

You silenced him with a brief kiss on the lips. You sat up and moved his arm onto your lap. “When I see you, Draco, I see someone who shouldn’t be defined by their mistakes.”

The moment we realized she was blind

Set the Scene: The half-celestial elf Zuriel is staying with the tiefling Lilcyra in a temple that acts as a half-way house for the good aligned travelers at 1 gold per night per person, run by bipedal carnivorous bee people (lovingly named the Beeple) that worship a deity of bees and wary travelers. This is a summary of the events that transpired.

Lilcyra(OOC): So I’m going to write a letter to you-know-who before going to sleep

DM: Yeah that’s fine, just pm me what you’re going to say

Lilcyra writes the letter and the setting switches to Zuriel discussing the Beeple’s odd carnivorous ways and the rotting meat honey they create from this diet.

Some 40 minutes later discussing where Lilcyra can buy this “honey” after sending off her letter

Zuriel: Do you have any idea where the market is or are you just wanting to look around for it.

Lilcyra: In case you didn’t know I’m blind, and new to this town so I don’t know where the market is.

Zuriel: No no I guessed that back when you tried to read the scroll, couldn’t, and then asked me to do it for you. I had just assumed that you were either blind or couldn’t read, not that I would judge you either way-

DM: Wait, oh my god you can’t read…

Cue my confusion as both Lilcyra and our DM bust a gut at the realization that Lilcyra is blind and couldn’t have written a letter, so essentially she just sent a page of scribbled on paper to someone extremely important because they forgot that their character is blind.

protect neville longbottom

so obviously in the books we see neville’s classmates jeering at/making fun of him during his awkward hogwarts years, and i can just imagine the gryffindor boys conspiring together to protect smol neville at all costs, little first years huddled in their too-big beds, bonding over their concern for their kind-hearted but rather clumsy friend. over the years, their tactics include

  • seamus loudly offering his support for neville and his botany, even that darned mimbulus mimbletonia, praising its exotic beauty (?????) and utility (?????!!!)
  • harry hurrying ahead when he sees a bunch of upperclassmen snickering after neville tripped on nothing but air, catching up to his friend and scooping up his books and offering a hand as neville smiles gratefully
  • (before they leave, harry glares at the sixth and seventh years, who shrink back, suddenly remembering all the other places they have to be)
  • dean painstakingly lettering neville’s name in his beautiful calligraphy onto the tags of his robes and miscellaneous items so he won’t lose them in the messy heap of gryffindor clothes
  • ron spying neville sniffling in the corridors after reading a particularly scathing letter from his loving but sometimes harsh grandmother, and sidling beside neville to nonchalantly swing his arm around his mate 
  • they fall into a deep conversation about self-worth and confess shyly to each other their insecurities (“i have five older brothers, mate, that’s a bit much to live up to, don’t’cha think?” neville, shining with sincerity, blurting, “but ron, your brothers haven’t done half the things you have, really…beating magical chess, winning the house cup, facing down lockhart….” ron blushes fiercely, but grins widely)
  • the four boys forming an indignant shield around neville when snape tries to demean and belittle him as usual in potions, slipping him little hints and nudging him towards the right ingredients (courtesy of hermione’s plentiful assistance)
  • growing older and increasingly busier, but always finding time to check in with the other gryffindor boys, catching up and complaining and sharing about their days (and also making sure no one’s been bothering neville)
  • encouraging neville to be more outspoken about his wants/needs (“yeah, you tell ‘im, neville!!”), and doing their best to provide a supportive environment and a real home
  • just four boys bonded by real friendship and bravery, demonstrating true courage by watching over their friend so he never feels helpless or oppressed, but rather supported and encouraged
  • watching and waiting and helping until the day their friend–their friend whose remembrall got stolen, who got himself turned into a canary, who got caught singing to his plants in the greenhouse every night–stands up against voldemort himself, pledging loyalty until “when hell freezes over!”, and bringing the sword of gryffindor swinging down, down, down into voldemort’s very soul 
  • and later, as a professor at hogwarts, when there are whispers of “kept the DA alive during the carrows’ reign at hogwarts!” and “refused to join them death eaters, right in front of voldemort himself!”, neville just smiles with his fluffy jumpers and achingly kind eyes, going right on tending to and protecting the puffs and the gryffs, the slyths and the claws, especially the ickle firsties who huddle together their first year away from home.
