all in on credit card

wildjubejube  asked:

How do I convince my mom to get me a binder? She's afraid of ordering online because she doesn't like giving info away, and I'm not out to her but I'm trying to tell her it's for confidence. Any advice?

Well, if her aversion is to buying online in general, it might help to know that we don’t actually access anyone’s credit card information. All that is handled by either Paypal or Stripe, our secure payment processors.

Hope this helps!

Spending Sugar Money

As most experienced sugar babies will know, when first starting off an arrangement, determining how to spend your new windfall allowance is difficult.  To assist newbies and other babies in the bowl, check out my strategy below!

Beginning Allowance (when first entering the bowl/a new arrangement):  

  1. Save up three months worth of rent (keep in savings for rainy day, continue paying rent out of pocket from vanilla job)
  2. Purchase general necessities (stock up on things like shampoo, toothpaste, other toiletries, etc. also for rainy day; stock up on non-perishable food also or grocery store gift cards)
  3. Pay off all credit card debt (minor debt)
  4. Begin chipping away at Student Loan Debt (major debt)

Percent of what goes where:

  • 50% - student loans (or other large debt you may be carrying.
  • 30% - high yield savings account (I use Capital One 360 because I like the ability to make sub accounts)
  • 10% - personal spending fun (if you’re in a lot of debt you might be tempted to put all your money in savings or paying things off, but be realistic here. You will always want to have a little bit of fun spending money! If you don’t include it in your budget, you will throw your whole budget off)
  • 5% - sugaring necessities (makeup, hair, nails, tanning, lingerie - don’t forget to invest in yourself! This is important!)
  • 5% - house cash (random necessities - food, toiletries, cleaning supplies, bed sheets, etc.)

What does this look like in monthly allowances?

…And so on.  You get the idea.  It doesn’t matter what kind of allowance you have.  It’s still money you didn’t have before!  Remember to think of your sugar money as a windfall and put it to good use! 

“All my credit cards still say, ‘Mrs. Richard Gilmore’. But the Sandcastle? The Sandcastle says, 'Owner: Emily Gilmore’.”

I cannot describe how much I cried at this, at the entire scene but especially this line. This is everything to me. Emily spent her life being Richard’s wife and when he dies, she is adrift. But here? She is learning how to be just Emily Gilmore - everything big that was bought before was through Richard. But the Sandcastle - a place she still shared with Richard - it’s hers.

I cry every time thinking about it, about this moment and how Kelly Bishop makes Emily shine here. She is happy, and she is content, and she is proud. She is Emily Gilmore, and I will miss her most of all.

Ransom and Holster worry that the whole Jack and Bitty dating thing might be a one-sided thing originally. They’re happy for the two of them when they reveal it over group chat but, after all, all they know about about Jack’s dating/hook-up history is just that he seems emotionally unattached, and although Jack’s their bro, they’re both a little concerned for Bitty.

Their fears are extinguished when Jack comes over to visit Bitty and he basically hovers around Bitty and looks after him like he’s one second away from asking for a kiss. He’s always helping in the kitchen and handing jars from high cabinets to Bitty with such a practiced motion that the tiny Haus kitchen doesn’t seem to bother him at all.  But it’s really only during Bitty’s nighttime pie-making sessions that Ransom and Holster let go of their worries once and for all, when Bitty starts talking about how one of the Falconers had an awful playoffs beard mishap when they were trying to shave it off: “It looked like a worm on his face, I swear–”

And their serious once-Captain, now-NHL Jack Zimmermann–a so-called ‘hockey robot’–just picks up a piece of the dough and puts it above his lips, and says, “Playoffs ‘stache. Kiss me.” Bitty erupts in peals of laughter as Jack tries to smooch his neck, crying out, “Jack, that is unsanitary” which Jack responds with an “Aww, Bits. But I love you.”

Ransom shrieks and he has to take several deep breathes to regain his composure. Holster is hoisting himself on the counter, caught between wanting to chirp them about how embarrassingly adorable they are and yelling “FOINNNE,” but he ends up sticking a dough ‘stache to his own face and attempting to kiss both Bitty and Jack. Lardo gets it on video and sends it to the group chat. Shitty cries and texts back “YOU CAN KISS ME JACK ZIMMERMANN!!! :( :( :(”

And a Niffler in a Gold Tree


I’ll give Jessica credit, she really goes all out with Christmas cards. She’s doing howlers that sing “12 Days of Christmas” with the next verse mailing each day.

“But Jonathan,” I hear you saying, “We are still 19 days away.”

I know, she’s been sending them since the first, and the verses are progressively getting stranger and stranger. I’m almost afraid to see what gifts the two fictional “True Loves” are getting for each other in the last few days.

“Nope. He even bought me a drink. Paid for it with a credit card and all.”

Brief reminder that my life is far from success in the real world.

If you can - Make friends, get connections, take opportunities, and suffer for a few years (not a few months, not just one year) if necessary in a low-end job EARLY, so that your future self can thank you for both the experiences you’ll gain and the starting income to get ya started.

Some might be able to get themselves out of anything and/or through odd means, and I hope to represent that example - but if everyone lives as carelessly as me then I can’t promise everyone will be well off

Commission me?

(I know that roughly 80% of the examples above are Homestuck, but I’m not picky about fandom. All I need is some reference.)

Some more guidelines:

  • All backgrounds are to be negotiated in terms of complexity. The more elements and details, the more dindin$.
  • I’ll do pin-ups and softcore but not explicit because I’m no good at that.

Olly Olly Oxen Free

Hi there! I’d like to make a request if thats okay?? How about a Leto jokerxharley or xreader, whatever you prefer, where Harley/Reader finds out that Jokers ticklish and decides to use it against him! I thought that’d be a really cute idea! C:

J was having a business discussion with someone on the phone in his office. He was leaning back against the black leather chair, his long legs were extended across the desk. You walked behind him and began rubbing his shoulders. You were on a mission. Recently you had pissed J off, by not wanting to go out the other night. In your defence you were tired after a long day of shopping. And so that was your punishment, J took all of your credit cards from you. You had tried to make it up to him with sex, which you thought was working during, but after he had finished he didn’t give you a single card back. So here you were, practicing the slight of hand trick one of the henchmen had just taught you.

“I want it done and I want it done right.” J growled into the phone.

You let your hands rub down the front of his chest. You knew his wallet was in his suit jacket, you were slow close. You started to use your nails, scratching all around the front of his chest. He seemed to be really enjoying it, you knew it was time to strike. You scrapped your nails to the sides of his body, trying to reach the wallet.
But what happened next you couldn’t believe.

The Joker giggled.

Not his loud, bone chilling laugh. But a giggle you might her from a giddy school boy.

You jerked your hands from J’s body and started at him with wide eyes. He started at you too. He seemed just as surprised as you. The phone next to his ear was silent on the other end as well, they were probably contemplating on if they really just heard the king of Gotham giggle. In a swift movement he hung up the phone and stood up. He didn’t say anything just kept staring at you. You stared at him, until you bursted up laughing. You couldn’t believe what you had just witnessed. You started gasping for air and clutching your stomach. J glared at you before walking out of the office. After you had caught your breath, you smiled. You had just found the way to get your money back.

J was seated at the head of the long wooden table in the conference room, all of his men were occupying the rest of the seats. You sauntered into the room, and made your way to sit on J’s lap. He was so into the conversation that he didn’t pay much attention to your wandering hands. You almost felt bad for what you were about to do, almost. You slowing bended your hands baring your nails to tickle him. Your hands were almost to his sides when his long pale fingers clasped tightly over yours. You snapped your eyes to look at him, but his face was a placid and unrevealing as ever. As Frost took his turn to talk, J began to speak to you.

“I know what you’re up to.” he whispered into your ear.

You just smirked at him, “Oh Yeah? What is that?”

“Don’t play dumb.”

“I’m not playing dumb, I am curious.” You said with a scowl.

“Curiosity killed the cat.”

“But satisfaction brought it back.”

He growled and gripped your hands tighter, he was obviously getting very fed up with your antics.

“That’s it, get out.” He said while forcing you to stand up.

This captured his henchmen’s attention, drawing all of their faces to stare at the two of you.

What you did next was either very dumb, or very brave. A quick as lighting you shot your hands out and tickled J. He let out a loud giggle. All of his men stared at him, their mouths hanging open, at what they had just heard come out the Joker’s mouth. You hadn’t stuck around to see their reactions, you had taken off as soon as you had heard the giggle escape his lips. The Joker now following quickly after you. You raced down the hallways of the mansion.

“Run, run, run, as fast as you can!” J yelled from behind you.

And run you did, straight into the master bedroom. You turned around to see J running down the hallway after you, with a loud bang you slammed the door in face, while quickly locking it. After that you ran to the bathroom door and locked it aswell. You shut the door to make it look as if you were in there, before you slipped under your large bed. J jiggled the doorknob, as you tried to steadied your breathing.

“Let me in girly. I just wanna talk to ya.” He said through the door.

He wiggled the knob again before, you heard him kick it in. You stared at his shiny shoes from under the bed.

“Olly olly oxen free!“ He called out to you.

He stood there for a moment before making his way to the bathroom door.

“Like a kitty cat in a cage.” He purred into the bathroom door.

You saw him left his leg to strike the bathroom door down. Now was your chance, you slipped out from under the bed and made a break to the door. You had almost made it out when you felt a hand grip your long hair. You screamed out loud. J used his free hand to cover your mouth. He was standing behind you holding you tight in his grip.

“You’re in big trouble missy.” He growled into your ear.

You tried to talk, but it came out incoherent and muffled due to his hand over your mouth. He removed it with an annoyed sigh.

“Come again?”

“You called out ‘olly olly oxen free,’ that means it’s safe for me to come out.”

“That’s true, I did say that. But that doesn’t mean you’re not going to be punished.”

You felt relief flood your body, after realizing what form of punishment he was insinuating. Slowly you began to rub your butt against him. His hands quickly fell to your hips, ceasing your movements. You turned in his grip to face him.

“I’m sorry baby.” You said while sliding your hands around his body.

“You of all people should know apologises are worthless to me.”

“I know, but it still doesn’t mean that, I am not sorry.” You said going on your tiptoes to kiss his lips.

“I’ve got a meeting to finish. Then i’ll deal with you.” He said, while turning on his heels leaving you alone.

You smiled brightly as you looked down at the alligator skin wallet in your hands.

“He always underestimates me.” You said with a sigh, while grabbing your shoes.

You had some shopping to do.

Dean wanted Cas to have the best of everything.

He bought books and candles and a toaster, and good food - and he learned to cook it, too, with the help of glossy cookbooks. He bought patterned rugs and new pens and vases, and cushions, and cutlery, and clocks. He wanted Cas’ world to be beautiful, for everything he looked at to make him smile. He wanted their home to feel like home, full of their things.

It was all on fraudulent credit cards, of course, but - well. They did their work, and saved lives wherever they could. Dean had always figured that they deserved to make a few bucks, and it wasn’t as though those rich city bankers in their thousand-dollar condos couldn’t afford to lose a little here and there.

His greatest achievement was, without a doubt, the pillows. They were soft, made of a special kind of foam. If anything could make sleeping easier for the two of them, and chase away the strain of nightmares, these cushions were it. That’s what Dean thought, anyway. 

On the first night of using them, Dean made sure they were set neatly. The dark blue pillowcases that he’d chosen looked good. He got into bed and laid down, filled with anticipation as Cas put on his pyjamas.

Cas got into bed, and snuggled into Dean, resting his head on Dean’s chest.

“Cas,” Dean said. “I bought new pillows?”

“I know,” Cas said, already sounding sleepy. “How do they feel?”

“Great,” said Dean, a little pointedly. “You should try yours.”

Cas didn’t move. The weight of his head was steady and reassuring.

“Mmm,” Cas murmured. “But you’re a better pillow.”

Dean huffed and rolled his eyes.

“Cas,” he said. “These are worth over a hundred dollars.”

Cas’ hand was resting on Dean’s chest, and his thumb moved in gentle circles.

“You’re worth more,” he said. Dean sighed.

“Cas, I’m just - I’m just trying to give you the best -”

“I already have the best,” Cas said. He reached for Dean’s hand, and wrapped their fingers together. “I have you.”

Dean blinked up at the ceiling for a second, and then laughed, and kissed the top of Cas’ head. 

A few minutes later, they were both fast asleep.

the number of older people that I've had to explain how a credit transaction works, because they have no clue, is kind of astounding considering all of the credit cards they have in their name.
