also are there ice cubes in there...

Sometimes a family is a plant lesbian, her harlequin girlfriend, an enigma, a master of burlap, a crazy cat lady, a living ice cube, the crime lord of penguins, a crocodile cryptid, a walking ball of play-doh, and a defunct district attorney and I think that’s great. 

i used to work at Denny’s and honestly i served the weirdest people like this one time these two really stoned guys came in and when they were ordering their drinks the one guy was like “i would like a coke with exactly 6 ice cubes” and i actually counted out 6 and brought him his drink and when he saw that there was actually exactly 6 ice cubes he just stared at me for an uncomfortably long time and also he tipped me 20 dollars

Wolf pup playing at the San Diego Zoo

A playful two-month-old grey wolf pup is spending time in the Children’s Zoo nursery at the San Diego Zoo. The 23-pound pup, named Shadow, is in the process of completing a 30-day quarantine, after which he will live at Wegeforth Bowl and serve as an ambassador for his species. 

Animal care staff members are introducing Shadow to various smells and sights, which will help prepare him for his new role as an animal ambassador. Keepers working with Shadow will give him items such as ficus browse to smell and chew, ice cubes to chase around or cardboard boxes to climb on. The young wolf can also see guests visiting him at the nursery, which keepers say is also beneficial.

“He sees people in the window when they come by to visit; these things are all new and interesting to him. You’ll see him key in on something and really get in tune with it,” said Kim Weibel, senior keeper of veterinary services at the San Diego Zoo. “That’s a neat thing with wolves, the way they tune into things; they are very intelligent,” Weibel said.

Do's and Don't's for helping someone through a PTSD flashback!

So personally I have PTSD. Everyone has different coping skills and ways of getting through their flashbacks, and these are some of the things that help me, personally. Feel free to add anything you think night be helpful and feel free to reblog to help those who also struggle with this horrible mental illness.

DO’s:
*separate the person from a large group. Large groups personally make everything worse. Get them to a quiet, secluded area as quickly and as quietly as you can, it will decrease anxiety so fast.

*give the person an ice cube to hold. The cold is painful enough that it brings the oersons senses back to reality and out of their flashback, but it isn’t too damaging.

*talk to the person,if they are willing, about what they are seeing. Remind that person in soft and quiet tones that you are not their abuser, and that they are safe.

*ask for permission before you touch them!!! Personally if someone I don’t know touches me when I’m having a flashback I get so much worse. If I haven’t given you permission to touch me DO NOT DO IT!

*give the person a distraction. Be it a quiet cartoon, soft classical music. Something calming and not too overstimulating.


DON’T’S

*DON’T speak in a loud voice. This makes us think you are angry, or upset that we are having an episode. It will make an even worse and I will find the closest thing to hide under.

*DON’T raise your hands or move too quickly. My biggest fear during an episode is that I’m going to be hit so seeing raised arms or fast movements will scare me really badly.

*DON’T tell the person that it’s all in their head. This is not only redundant but it makes us feel even stupider and more vulnerable.

*DON’T panic yourself. I know that helping us through our episode can be stressful but please do not panic. It will set us off even harder. I feel more vulnerable and susceptible to others emotions and if you panic, I will too.

Just some useful stuff that personally helps me. As I said feel free to add to this or reblog it to maybe help someone else. C:

How You Cuddle (Harry Potter Preferences)

Harry Potter

Originally posted by sensuous

Harry is usually either busy or stressed out, so it’s hard to find time to do something simple such as cuddle. Usually you’ll pull him out of his daze by just wrapping your arms around him from behind, reminding him that you’re there to help him through anything. After the initial reminder he is a big ball of fluff.

Ron Weasley

Originally posted by loveviral

Ron loves cuddling, even during times when it’s maybe not the best time. When you’re reading or just relaxing sometimes he will crawl up to you and snuggle into your stomach. It never fails to bring a smile to your face and distract you from whatever you were doing before.

Draco Malfoy

Originally posted by kissing-pleasure

Draco has the tendency to believe he is a bad person, and almost needs more comforting then you do. Whenever you two are wrapped up in each others arms, you always find yourself running your fingers across his back or head to both calm him and remind him that you’re there no matter what.

Fred Weasley

Originally posted by pleasingpics

Fred is a very cuddly person, but also likes to make you laugh. He will come in asking you about your day and pulling you into his arms, though now and again he will slip an ice cube or something else foreign up your shirt to stir things up a little. Though it doesn’t always seem funny at first, you always end up laughing in the end.Plus there are always plenty of cuddles to go around later.

George Weasley

Originally posted by our-sizzling-seduction

George is the perfect big spoon, and is always up for a little one on one time. After a long day of work or classes there is nothing better then crawling up into his lap and resting her head against his chest. This way you can listen to the steady beating of his heart as you wind down from the days previous events.

Neville Longbottom

Neville doesn’t like seeing you sad or angry and tends to always want to make you feel better. He will pull you into his arms for however long necessary and shower you face and head with subtle kisses to make you smile. He never seems to fail.

anonymous asked:

do you have any fic recs?

EBuckle up. This is only took me three weeks to formulate an answer for okay because I read SO MANY FICS (like not kidding sometimes upwards of ten or twelve a day) and this ask is MAKING ME PICK????

I’ll put them in neat little ship categories too, so I don’t look like a completely uncultured reader.

**** = My faves. 

 I’ll designate my fics too, because why not shamelessly promote myself while I’m here. 

Victor/Yuuri (Victuuri):

  1. Take My Hand, Take My Whole Life Too [T, 1.6k] by  shingeki_no_llama  | Victor Nikiforov thinks he knows just who has their thoughts scrawled so carelessly on the back of his hand. He can only pray he is right.———Soulmate AU where the thoughts of your soulmate inscribe themselves on your skin in a temporary ever-changing tattoo
  2. Viktor!!! on Ice {E. 2.3k} by  timelordofrassilon Yuuri sent a prayer of thanks to the gods for whoever invented ice cubes. He stood in the onsen, body hot and steaming from the water at his waist, while Viktor’s cold tongue slid up the curve of his neck.
    ————————–
    Fluffy, in-character onsen sex that is also 100% raunchy ice skater porn. They confess their fantasies. There are ice cubes. Yuuri talks about his body pillow.

  3. ****Unwritten {T, 34k} by  kaizuka |  Soulmates AU where whatever you write on your own skin appears on your soulmate, but when there is a language barrier, meeting becomes just a little more difficult than it should be.
  4. hold me hard and mellow {M, 3k} by  YuuriVityaNyan (NarryEm) | Training with Viktor is … hard.  In more ways than one.It doesn’t take long for Yuuri to realise that if Viktor is going to coach him, there are few things that he has to work out first.  One of which is his not so little crush on the Russian skater.  And, of course, he has to figure out how the heck he is going to skate to ‘eros’ for the skate-off.
  5. ****************Until My Feet Bleed and My Heart Aches  {E, 197k} by Reiya   | ‘…Of all the rivalries in the world of sports over the years, perhaps none has become so legendary as that of Russian figure skater Viktor Nikiforov and his rival, Japanese Yuuri Katsuki…’A single event changes the course of Yuuri’s life, throwing him into a bitter rivalry with Viktor Nikiforov that spans across his entire skating career. But as the years go on, rivalry and hatred begin to develop into something very different and Yuuri doesn’t seem to be able to stay away, no matter how hard he tries.Hatred and love are two sides of the same coin and even though everything changes, some things are still meant to be.
  6. all the world’s a stage {E, 112k} by braveten | Everyone has a guilty pleasure.For Yuuri, it just happens to be romance movies starring famous heartthrob Victor Nikiforov.(And, honestly, on the spectrum of guilty pleasures, he figures that his is on the far, far more innocent side.)
  7. ****Even if I Tried {T, 6k} by  deathbycoldopen | He took his place next to Viktor in the kiss and cry, floating like ash over the wreckage of the fire. He took the water bottle Viktor offered with a murmured thank you, and stared out at the ice. Distantly, he couldn’t quite believe that the surface was still frozen.“Did it really feel that good?”His eyes flickered over to Viktor, then back to the ice. There was a different kind of heat invading his cheeks now, all too familiar and unwelcome. “Um,” he said quietly. “Mostly I just wanted people to feel good watching it.”Lie. He’d only thought of one person. The man who’d regularly had underwear thrown onto the ice along with the flowers, the man who’d had four scandalous and highly publicized affairs with models and other skaters before the age of twenty, the man that Yuuri couldn’t hope to keep but desperately wanted to.

My Victuuri Fics:

  1. Like The Ache Of Life {T, 1k} | Victor lives a life of aching limbs, high spins, and blades against ice.
    He’s trapped.——–

  6. ****Endurance and Peach Tea {G, 11k} by  chapstickaddict | Yuri hummed. His body didn’t uncurl, but instead of pressing his face into the fold of his legs, he rested it on his crossed forearms. Tilting his face towards Otabek, he looked for the bronze metal. The colorful ribbon snuck into the folds of his jacket, hiding his prize from view. Yuri reached out, and Otabek let him pull the ribbon to bring the metal into the light.It was beautiful. Heavy and ornate, with the front masterfully detailed. The perfect symbol of success. Yuri flipped it over, admiring Otabek’s name carved along the back.Wait.“Did they spell your name wrong?” he demanded, straightening. Otabek made a noise beside him.
  7. ****Yours, Mine, Ours {T, 5k} by aphhun   | Otabek blinked himself back into the conversation and turned towards Viktor. Without thinking, against what he tried his hardest to keep from happening, he inquired-“Your Yuuri’s, or my Yuri’s?”-In which Otabek has always been careful not to use Viktor’s “My Yuuri/Your Yuri” reference system but indulges in the habit on Live television, and Yuri has a damn heart attack.
  8. Permanently {T, 14k} by  HugsandButterflyKisses |  What’s with you asshole

  4. With Us Went The Sun {T, 1.5k} | It’s one forty-five in the morning and the sky is bright. Not with stars or the lights of buildings rising through the night, but bright like day.

  5. Someday, In This Morning Light {G, .6k} |  This life is filled with simple beauty, and Otabek relishes silent moments such as this one, where he can do no more than observe and collect memories. (Drabble)

Phichit/Seung-Gil (SeungChuChu):

The brothers’ kinks/likes/fetishes

[ Sakamakis ]

Shuu: Definitely makes you play with yourself for him to see- he’s not shy about it, either, he’ll be dead on staring at you  and he won’t stop until he’s satisfied. Also has a shaming kink; He will love to shame the hell out of you, calling you a lewd woman or simply just making you embarrassed, it gets him turned on really fast.

Reiji: BDSM ( bondage and discipline, dominance and submission, sadism and masochism/ slave and master.) Need I say more? He would love to treat you as his pet and dominate the hell out of you- be ready for punishments at all times and for him to do anything he wishes to do so- you’re his slave, so be good and obey.

Ayato: I mean this boy would just play with your breasts for a really long time- he has a thing for them as we all know ( either small or big he doesn’t care he just wants to grab them ) He’d love to use blindfolds because it would make you really jumpy, and he’d have fun watching your reaction- plus, you’re completely vulnerable.

Laito: Oral sex. He loves it. He’s a sucker for it, no pun intended. Mostly he’ll want you to go down on him and only after he’ll reward you for being such a good girl, but sometimes 69 isn’t completely out of his interest either; He loves tying your wrists and not allowed you to move, and make you guess where he’s going to bite next.

Kanato: Blood-choking, Breath-play, I mean just any sort of choking will do- he’ll want to leave you at the edge of passing out out even actually make you pass out, he’ll have fun watching your reaction and playing with you as you’re barely breathless. He will play special attention to your shoulders, it’s his favourite place to bite during sex.

Subaru: Although he’s kind of shy at first, soon enough he’s going to share his kinks; He absolutely loves temperature play, but only on you, not on himself. Pouring wax after, or before, he traces patters with an ice-cube on your skin is really fun for him. Also he kind of likes doing it with you against a wall- it gives him dominance.

[ Mukamis ]

Ruki: Hahahaha…Bondage, hardcore bondage. You are his pet and you are going to submit fully- you will speak when spoken to, answer only if asked to and shall not make a sound unless it’s his name leaving your lips- IF he allows you to do so. Spanking, whipping, tying you up- he’s into all of that! Seeing you defenseless does it for him.

Kou: Cat play. Are we surprised? No. He will dress you up as a cat- not only the ears, he will go full-out with the outfit. You’re gonna have a cute little tail ( you better be sure it’s gonna be a butt-plug ), a cute little outfit and, of course, your ears. He also has a praising kink- he will praise the hell out of you, say you’re a good kitty.

Yuma: He’ll want to record it. Every second of it. Not necessarily him, but he’d love to record you go down on him or something of sorts. Doggy style would be his favourite position because he has a thing for your ass, just putting it out there. Also, he has a thing for doing it outside, for example on his garden.

Azusa: Knife play. Once again, are we surprised? No. He will love to move the knives softly across your skin and see you flinch and waiting for the pain, and then he’d finally trace a cute pattern on it- He likes whispering sweet things when he’s doing it, and then lick off the blood- He’d be great at aftercare, too.

{Special} College!AU Taeil
  • major: neuroscience 
  • minor: n/a
  • clubs: astronomy research club, brain games club, math-olympiad club, and every now and then he plays guitar in a friend’s on campus band  
  • sports: tried out for the table-tennis club but swung so hard the paddle flew out of his hand and smacked the coach in the face and taeil kinda just,,,,didn’t say anything,,,just kinda,,,,slipped away
  • is extremely intelligent and is considered to be in the top of his class for his graduating year 
  • has an extreme knack for any kind of science and math, can do equations in his sleep, and wrote a paper on neuropharmacology just for the fun of it!
  • that paper was published by a well known science journal and when taeil found out because taeyong came over to congratulate him, taeil smiled and got up to shake taeyongs hand,,,,,,
  • only to fall over instantly from shock without a word ahksfgds
  • although he’s got the best grades and an immense amount of knowledge, he never shows it off 
  • people didn’t even know he graduated a year early from seoul science high school until someone in his lab went “we’re the same age, you don’t have to speak formally to me!” but taeil was like oh no im a year younger
  • the whole class turned to look at him and he was just like sitting there,,,,unblinkingly oblivious to the fact that everyone in the room was like not only is he a genius,,,,but he’s basically a kid genius what the fu-
  • his dorm is really simple and organized, he only really has his guitar and his textbooks
  • ten and johnny are always pestering him into being more fun, more open with his interests
  • but bringing up the workings of the human brain on the way to the movies with friends doesn’t really seem like something taeil thinks he should do
  • so he’s kind of on the quiet side,,,,,,,sicheng always nudges taeyong and asks what taeil is thinking
  • because he just sits in the computer lab or on the quad or in study hall with a book open and the same expression on his face
  • and taeyong is like “it takes years to learn the language of taeil’s face. oh, did you see him just flinch - that means he’s hungry.”
  • but one thing about him that everyone knows is he has a habit of being ,,,,, a bit dangerous
  • like if someone annoys him for too long he swats at them, pinches them, and sometimes he doesn’t know his own strength
  • which is why doyoung nicknamed him “moon cat” because like a cat, he’ll paw at you if you annoy him
  • taeil doesn’t think he’s anything like a cat, but he does like them so he lets doyoung get away with it
  • when yuta jokingly called him an old shrew – well lets just say yuta didn’t get away clean with that one
  • people don’t know this about him but he likes to play guitar,,,,,,but not only acoustic guitar,,,,,,if he gets the chance he’ll play electric or even bass 
  • and im not saying im imagining taeil in his lab coat, goggles on, headbanging and jumping up and down with an electric guitar in his hands
  • i mean who am i kidding that’s exaCTLy what im saying and what i want to see
  • taeil also likes bad comedy. his classmates think he’s the next big scientist going to graduate and go teach abroad at yale or something
  • but little do they know that if someone as much as trips and lands on their face or sends taeil a really shitty sonic meme
  • taeil will LOSE IT 
  • and that he himself can be really funny without even trying like that one time he choked on an ice cube and taeyong was like oh he’s playing jokes again and taeil was like the only reason i didn’t die is because it melted i hate you
  • and everyone was like LOL he’s so funny,,,,,,,,and taeil was just like what if i runaway and live solely off dirt in the mountains,,,,you will all Regret
  • but anyway,,,,,,,you’ve known taeil since you were young,,,,,,,you were there to see him get into the high school of his dreams, realize his talents in science, and just become this well rounded,,,,,amazing person
  • and you admit it,,,he’s always been someone you looked up to
  • even after you got distant and ended up majoring in two different fields, when you’d see each other on campus there was always a warmth in his smile and greeting
  • even if it was in passing,,,,,,
  • but you hadn’t had a class with him since you both entered college,,,,,so it was to your utter most shock when you saw taeil in your first class this fall semester
  • and of all the classes,,,,you looked down at your schedule,,,,,,,this was dance 237,,,,,,,, “ballroom dance technique”
  • you backtracked, looking at the number outside the room - this was definitely the number on your schedule and the teacher that passed by you to come inside was most definitely a dance department teacher
  • ,,,,,,,,,was taeil in the right place???
  • quickly, you hurry over and taeil who had set his bag down and was sitting criss-cross on his phone reading an article on the solar eclipse almost knocks over when you stop short in front of him and go
  • “let me see your schedule”
  • looking up,,,,,he stares at you for a solid minute and then goes “why?”
  • and you point behind you and you’re like “taeil,,,does this look like a lab?”
  • he moves his head a bit and takes in the empty room, there aren’t even desks or a board and the floor is strangely lacquered 
  • he looks at you and goes “no, it doesn’t.”
  • and in your head you’re like he’s a genius he probably can tell we’re in a practice room for the dance majors,,,,,,right
  • but taeil still doesn’t budge or act  surprised he just stares back at you
  • and you finally squat down and show him your own schedule
  • “this is dance 237, are you taking ballroom as an elective?”
  • taeil’s eyebrows furrow and he takes your schedule, pulling out his own from his pocket and comparing the two,,,
  • the numbers on the room are the same,,,,so is the time block
  • but on his it says “neuro 304: structure of the nervous system” 
  • you both look at each other and stand up, you urge taeil to go tell the teacher but before you can the room fills up and the teacher begins the usual welcome to this class speech
  • she finishes, only to start calling names and you answer when you hear yours but,,,,,then a couple of names later she calls out ‘moon taeil’
  • taeil raises a hand,,,,but doesn’t say anything
  • you shoot him a look from the side and whisper “tell her after class”,,,,,,but taeil just clams up and doesn’t move 
  • afterwords, you walk with him out into the hall,,,,you tell him that if anything he should find another class to transfer into fast before the seats get taken up 
  • taeil nods,,,but the grim expression on his face makes you nervous
  • the rest of the week goes by fast, you’ve pilled up the courses this semester and you don’t see taeil in any other of your classes
  • but when you find yourself outside of dance 237 the following tuesday for your second class,,,,,taeil is also there
  • “you didn’t drop???”
  • the surprise in your voice is apparent and taeil sighs,,,,,he mumbles that all the seats in any other class fitting his schedule were taken - even creative poetry which yuta had suggested he take 
  • you frown and ask if it’s really worth it to take this class just for the credit and taeil kind of shifts and goes “i don’t want to have to pay the liability fee”
  • you nod,,,,,and watch as everyone piles into the room for the first official lesson
  • out of your bag, you pull out the shoes that the teacher specified you bring and taeil gives you a quizzical look
  • “you ,,,, can’t wear sneakers for ballroom dance”
  • you whisper and taeil looks down at his worn out nikes with a small sigh “oh,,,,,,,”
  • you giggle and think,,,,he’s the schools most sought after graduate and he forgets that ballroom dancing requires heeled shoes,,,,,,
  • the teacher makes note and taeil stammers out that he’s never taken a dance class before he doesn’t know
  • she cuts him slack but the other dance majors all side eye him as he looks to you with an embarrassed puppy like smile
  • and after class he asks “can i get them off amazon?”
  • you laugh into your palm, but nod because yes you can get dancing shoes off amazon genius moon taeil
  • the first dance you have to learn is the waltz, you and taeil aren’t partnered together but the entire class consists of the teacher hovering over taeil’s pair
  • straightening his shoulders, telling him to count in his head, his partner yelping when he accidentally steps on their foot
  • the teacher nicknames him her “semester project” saying she’ll make him a star dancer in no time
  • you hear taeil murmur that he’d probably faster graduate med-school then he would becoming a ‘star’
  • but ,,,, no matter what ,,,,,, he never quits??? he shows up to class, even proudly shows off to you the shoes he got online
  • though when they arrived, ten came barreling into taeil’s dorm - awe-stricken because taeIL YOURE GOING TO D A N CE and taeil had just shrugged
  • because “it’s not like it’s the end of the world-”
  • ten: “it’s the end of MY WORLD, dancing king moon taeil is going to steal my SPOTLIGHT!!!!!”
  • taeil: ,,,,,,,,,,aren’t you a modern dance major,,,,,,,,,this is for ballroom
  • ten: o h
  • but as you and taeil see more of each other in class,,,,even if it’s this one class and it happened by crazy coincidence,,, you can’t help but remember the fond memories of knowing him as a kid
  • the drive and passion he has for something,,,,and wanting to get it done till it’s perfect is still very much there in his personality
  • and he proves it when after class one afternoon he asks if you’re free for the rest of the day
  • you don’t want to admit it, but your heart almost beats out of your chest and you shyly answer that you are
  • ,,,,,,,,,,,but it isn’t a date or anything taeil just asks if you can stay behind him in the room and help him practice
  • “my partner keeps getting irritated,,,,and i don’t have anywhere or anyone to practice with.”
  • you nod in understanding and slip your shoes back on as you stand in front of taeil,,,,the two of you all alone in the room
  • he seems to hesitate putting his arms around you,,,,,you motion that it’s ok,,,,although there’s heat creeping up into your face as well
  • but you get into position and slowly you start to count out the steps 
  • after a while you stop and taeil gives you a look of concern
  • you smile a bit and explain that he has to lead,,,, he’s at least got the basics down but he should try counting off now
  • taeil seems worried,,,,the way the corners of his mouth twitch and his eyes sort of dart from your hand to your waist 
  • but you give him a word of encouragement and he says he’ll try it
  • it goes well,,,,,taeil is still sort of robotic with his movements and every now and then he skips over steps
  • but it’s not super bad or anything
  • you clap a little when you’re done and ask if you should try it with music,,,,taeil agrees but walks over to get some water from his bag
  • drinking it, he stops and offers some of it to you
  • you take the bottle, but before taking a drink you stare at it and giggle
  • “taeil, do you remember when we were kids in the same neighborhood?”
  • taeil takes a moment to remember but he nods,,,,,you don’t think he has the same memory as you but you tell him
  • “you’d always share your snacks with me and the other kids, i remember because there was a time i skipped lunch and was hungry and you were there,,,,,,,”
  • taeil brings his fingers up to his lip,,,,,you feel instantly tacky for bringing it up but he goes “i remember,,,,,,you always asked me for anything strawberry flavored i had.”
  • almost catching your breath,,,,you can’t believe it,,,,such a small detail and he’d remembered it so long,,,,
  • taeil is standing there,,,,,,,not doing anything different than normal,,,,,looking the same mixture between incredibly handsome and just a tad splash of awkward in the way you’d always seen him before
  • but with the sunlight coming through the windows casting shadows on the floor and the unfamiliar quietness on campus
  • he,,,,,,,,looks like someone from your dreams,,,,,, someone your heart can’t handle
  • so when he says something about starting the music you pretend you have to rush to catch up with a study group
  • it’s so sudden, even taeil’s shock is apparent as you grab your bag and blubber out a bunch of excuses
  • turning so fast that you almost walk straight into the door
  • taeil shouts that you shouldn’t run, not with your dancing shoes still on
  • but you’re too far down the hall to hear him and when you’re safely out of the building you feel something like swelling in your chest
  • he remembers ,,,,,,,,, he didn’t forget ,,,,,,,,,,,, you thought he would but he didn’t,,,,,,,,,,
  • the voice in your mind that has always known how you felt about taeil starts getting louder 
  • you thought he was just your role model,,,,your idol,,,,,,,,,,,the kind of person who inspires you to be better 
  • but it turned out that’s all just synonymous to being in love with him
  • but ,,,, you can’t tell him,,,,,,,,, it’d taken you so long to start getting to know him better after missing those years through high school that you couldn’t give up the chance - even of just being his friend
  • yet,,,, you have to protect your heart,,,,,, so as weeks continued on
  • you’d greet taeil warmly,,,but you kept your distance. you didn’t stay extra to practice with him,,,,or laugh at his hushed whispers about how annoying that one kid in the front is,,,,,,
  • you could feel your relationship with him reverting back to that of acquaintances,,,,but what could you do
  •  until it was a couple days before the last recital in front of the class and a couple of students were getting take out in the same restaurant as you off-campus and you heard one go
  • “you know what’s funny, i was trying to find a classroom to study in and i open the door and guess what i see?”
  • their friends perks up and asks what
  • “moon taeil,,,,,,,,the science genius,,,,practicing all by himself!!! all the desks were pushed back and he was spinning all over the place,,,dancing?? i almost laughed out loud !!”
  • “dancing? isn’t he a neuroscience major?”
  • “i know, i wonder if it’s his secret hobby!”
  • you think for a second that it’s not true,,,,,,taeil has a partner he can practice with there’s no way he would do it alone,,,,,,after all like they had said this wasn’t even his major,,,,,,
  • but before you could order your food, you turned and went out 
  • returning to the campus you knew there were probably still evening classes but you searched through every room in the science hall building
  • peeking through windows and asking if anyone had seen taeil
  • you found him,,,,,,just like those students had said 
  • in an empty classroom, the desks moved up to the walls and the sound of the song you’d been using in class wafting through the small open space
  • in which taeil stood,,,,arms up and around his invisible partner, counting steps out
  • he couldn’t see you,,,,not even when turning around,,,,his concentration was zeroed in and he,,,,,,,
  • he looked so cute talking to himself like that ,,,, that it made you want to stand and watch some more
  • but at some point you cleared your throat,,,,taeil looked over and that embarrassed puppy smile came back
  • the one that makes your heart flutter and your urge to kiss him go up by ten thousand
  • “oh,,,, how much did you see?”
  • “a good bit.”
  • “,,,,,,,,,,,i was going to ask ten to be my partner but i decided i didn’t want the nagging that comes with it”
  • you laugh,,,,moving past the desk to get over to taeil
  • he helps you buy pulling some aside and you set your bag down
  • “i don’t have my ballroom shoes, but i can still help you if you want?”
  • taeil looks like you’ve just offered him money,,,,he nods and you two spend a good two hours going over the steps 
  • only to leave the room when it’s dark out and the last classes are finishing up
  • taeil offers you some of his water as you leave but you say you’re going to buy something anyway at the vending machines
  • “strawberry milk?”
  • you look at him,,,,,,,,,,, “how do you kno-”
  • “i told you i remembered”
  • you bite your lip,,,, looking to the ground until you can gather enough courage
  • “about that, im sorry i freaked out last time. i think,,,, it’s just,,,,this is so embarrassing but you’ve always been someone above me,,,,,,that i was just shocked you didn’t forget something so small,,,”
  • taeil doesn’t reply and you feel like you’ve ruined it again
  • not until he reaches out,,, hand on the side of your cheek and you feel your heart jolt
  • “you know something,,,,,,,this is taking too long”
  • you don’t understand what he means and so taeil leans down to press his lips to yours
  • it’s ,,,,,,, shy but it’s meaningful and when he pulls back he adds
  • “i remember you being less oblivious as a kid, but i guess people change”
  • you touch your lips,,,,,in shock and amazement,,,,
  • you’re not sure what he’s talking about,,,,,,,,,,does that mean he’s liked you too????? but since when??? why???? you have 29342 questions
  • but taeil just kisses you again and this time you let your eyes flutter shut and you give in to the feeling
  • and when he walks you to your dorm,,,,you look at him kind of panicked and he asks what it is but you just say that it feels too much like a dream for this to be real
  • he laughs and goes “it’s real, you’ll know when i see you tomorrow for practice and also maybe a date?”
  • you agree,,,,,going into your room with a look like you’re over the moon but you’re not over the moon you’re very much in love with the moon that moon is MOON TAEIL
  • practice goes as usual and taeil is pretty stable with the dance now,,,,but afterwords you and taeil go for a picnic near the han river
  • and the lights are all on since it’s getting dark,,, the river is illuminated and the city looks so pretty
  • that you just have to take pictures and you don’t notice but taeil watches you warmly,,,,,finding every expression you make so damn cute he could EXPLODE
  • you guys walk along the edge and there’s so many couples out 
  • but seeing all the pda,,,,from hand holding to cute nickname calling to stolen kisses makes you get all flustered
  • but taeil,,,,,has always been straightforward when he wants something so he holds out his hand and goes “it’s here if you want it.”
  • carefully you put your hand in his and he laces your fingers
  • you don’t talk much but it doesn’t matter,,,, it’s peaceful and it’s perfect
  • and taeil kisses like a freaking GOD but he also finds it really cute that you insist you guys at least hide behind a fake tree or go into a corner alleyway 
  • and at some point he asks you to put your hands around his neck which you get nervous about but he just says against your skin that he wants to feel you close,,,,,,
  • he’s wanted to hold you like this for so long
  • did i mention taeil is romantic without even trying like he doesn’t know that half the things he says are super embarrassing and make your heart d i e but you LOVE IT
  • the dance recital is where everyone finds out you and taeil are a thing because no matter how “quiet” you wanted to keep it ,,,,
  • it’s obvious 
  • the way taeil inches forward in his seat when it’s you and your partners turn,,,, the way he smiles – a smile so rare taeyong claims he’s only seen it once before – and how after he goes,,,,and doesn’t mess up the person he goes to first is you
  • and he pulls you into his arms,,,,you mumble against his ear that this is too much!!! but he says that it’s not,,,, he’s happy you were there to help him
  • and also after this class is over he’s never taking dance again because oh my god that was embarrassing
  • you tell him he did fine,,,but as you find out the recital was open for anyone to view and people came oh People (nct) came
  • and Someone (johnny) record the whole thing and won’t let taeil live it down
  • but,,,,,,,,,,most of all nct won’t let him live down the fact that he’s daTING YOU 
  • no seriously when you were both sitting on the grass outside,,, taeil’s hand on your leg as he explained to you a part of his homework
  • doyoung and sicheng walked by and doyoung literally went “I SEE THAT HAND MOON TAEIL WATCH THAT HAND !!!!!!!!”
  • you had to curl up into a ball and taeil just grinded his teeth and doyoung was like ok i might get killed tonight if i do you know who did it sicheng
  • sicheng: i didn’t see anything
  • even though he’s smart, talented, and knows about things you’ve never even heard of ,,,, ,taeil is a simple boyfriend
  • whose ideal time spend together is just enjoying each others company,,,,,, no matter where you go or what you see
  • taeil just explains that loving you is easy,,,he likes that he doesn’t have to think about it or second guess his emotions he sees you and that’s enough for him
  • but you guys do get cute don’t get me wrong,,,,, going to the beach together and having taeil play his guitar in the sand,,,,, study dates at his or your dorm where you’re sitting between his legs with your laptop while he’s reading through his textbook,,,,, going to those board game cafes with taeyong and yuta and beating them in everY game,,,,,,running through the rain to get to the supermarket in the city and without even asking him taeil puts a carton of strawberry milk in the cart because he knows you like it,,,,,
  • it’s the small, little things you do together with him and every moment of it is full of love and care
  • taeil sometimes has sarcastic comments about his friends that send you into spiraling laughter,,,, even though you tell him to be nice
  • taeil just shrugs and goes “i can’t be nice if johnny’s haircut makes him look like a dog that’s just been through a washing machine”
  • he is unapologetically hilarious,,,,,, at the expense of his friends LOL
  • but also mark tried to ‘scare’ you once during a halloween party and taeil chased him through the entire building like twice difkldjsg
  • you and taeil were once trying to bake something for sicheng’s birthday but it ended up with you guys turning on some music and you basically urging taeil to dance with you 
  • and after some crazy moves a slow song came on and you were like “shall we see if you remember the waltz?” taeil had joked that of course he did, he was going to be a neurosciencetist his memory is great
  • but of course it had been a mess and you two laughed and at some point taeil just picked you up and spun you around in his arms and was like there that’s the whole dance LOL
  • ten sent you a video of taeil sleepwalking and mumbling your name and was like your bf is scary :/ come pick him up i think he’s HAUNTED
  • taeil wore glasses once when you were picking him up from lab and you almost died it was the cutest thing you took like 50 pics of him and he was like it’s not that gre-
  • and you were like NO its the best the BEST MOON TAEIL
  • you guys don’t do couple items but taeil’s entire phone is full of your selfies that you send in text and yeah the folder is called something corny and sweet 
  • like most people don’t think he’s funny,,,,,they also think he’s probably stuck up because of his good grades and genius
  • but he’s humble,,,, and really caring and even when people least expect it he does his best to help others out 
  • like he’ll piggyback you back to campus if you as much as sprain your ankle 
  • he really likes it when you sing,,, even if you can’t,,,,,just like when you mouth the words along to songs you like and he always tells you to keep going if you stop 
  • and you’re like taeil ,,,,, and he’s like “your voice is calming.”
  • falls asleep on late night facetimes 100%
  • you guys send memes to each other even though people are like those memes are old you two are like whatever we’ll be old and have fun together
  • it takes a couple of tries and some kisses to get him to pose for couple pics,,,, and he has the saME expression in all of them so you have to tickle him for a reaction or something and he’s just like :^| and you’re like taeil,,,,,,,light of my life,,,,,,,please smile and he’s like baby i am smiling (he’s not)
  • but if you pout he does,,,,honestly if you pout he’ll do a n y t h i n g
  • you were once over at his dorm, showing him something on your phone and taeil was like “closer, come closer i can’t see” and so you had climbed onto his bed to show him and he’d just
  • wrapped his arms around you,,, your phone slipping onto the sheets and he’d just kisses you so,,,,,passionately that you’d literally not been able to breathe for a second
  • and taeil is always,,,,,like i said,,,, straightforward he asked you if you’d be ok with him touching you,,,,ok with him taking it further 
  • he had whispered that he would want to take care of you but only if you wanted that too
  • and you’d hidden your face in your hands,,,,but said yes because,,,,if there was anyone in the world who could make you feel good it was him
  • and you had not wanted to leave,,,being tangled up with him and just being in this state of bliss was too perfect
  • it had actually been taeil who had to conjure you up and into clothes with the promise of pancakes from the campus kitchen
  • there are times when you think taeil forgets important dates or is being a little distant,,,, but he’s not he always proves that he loves you to pieces and even during the weeks where he’s swamped with club commitments, tutoring, finals, and presentations he makes time,,,,,,,,for you
  • even if it’s a quick five minutes where you hand him a coffee and he kisses your forehead and runs to his next class
  • and people ask you,,, he’s so quiet and so smart what do you have in common what do you even talk about
  • and you don’t know how to explain it,,,, because you and taeil don’t need constant talking or anything like that,,,, you just have this vibe that makes you two click
  • and it makes you two feels comfortable around each other,,, ,that any secrets or fears either of you has somehow comes out with ease
  • because you’ve known taeil for so long and he’s known you and your hearts are two in the same
  • even if his interests are different from yours,,, you appreciate each other no matter what
  • so you can sit on the couch, legs resting on top of his and do your own thing
  • or you can be huddled close in a room, taeil teaching you the guitar,,, not an inch between you
  • and it’s comfortable,,,,,it’s perfect
  • yuta: im so jealous how is taeil so freaking smart, so freaking handsome, and even has a freaking cute significant other gOD DAMN
  • taeil: it’s because i shut up and mind my business
  • you: oh my god
  • the entire campus: oh my god
  • yuta: wow just let your man destroy me like that huh 

If your main goal is ceaseless carnage and you don’t accomplish that as many times as you’d like to, you end up looking pretty useless. In The Walking Dead, Negan is supposed to be the ultimate villain. He doesn’t have the pesky personal ties that the Governor had, and he rocks better post-apocalyptic facial hair than any of the Hunters, so he kicks more ass than any of them. His first act upon entering the series is beating two of the most beloved male characters in the show to death with a baseball bat. If he doesn’t spend the rest of his tenure on the show curb-stomping the remaining cast, it will be a letdown.

And oh, it is. Over the course of a long, laborious season, Negan is basically reduced to a cursing Scooby-Doo villain, almost getting away with it if it weren’t for those meddling kids. American Horror Story, an anthology show that does a new plot in every season, fills its narrative with villains that it only planned a few solid episodes’ worth of anything for. After a few scary introductory scenes, they mostly float around like ice cubes in a punch bowl of haphazard storytelling.

The villains in Penny Dreadful, aka Frankenstein vs. Dracula vs. My Feelings, were a little more capable than the ones seen in most horror shows, but also a little more lazy. As it turns out, there’s a very fine line between “This villain is a slow, methodical mastermind” and “This villain is going to wait around until the heroes literally knock on his goddamn door,” and Penny Dreadful tripped headfirst over it, convulsing in the middle until the season was over.

5 Problems All Horror TV Shows Eventually Have

Hey guys, it’s cold season, and a lot of people I know are sick, and it has come to my attention that some people don’t know some of the things I know to do if you’re sick (like with a cold or sore throat or mild bug, I mean), so in case you guys don’t already know, here’s some things it’s usually good for you to consume if you’re sick (barring allergies and other dietary restrictions and stuff, of course). 

(These are mostly also very good if you are just trying not to GET sick when everyone else is.)

-Ginger.  You can buy a big hunk of ginger root in the produce section and rough chop it (and ideally peel it, but if you’re tired or low on spoons don’t worry, the peel won’t hurt you) and throw it in the blender or food processor with some water, and then put whatever of the paste you aren’t using immediately in ice cube trays in the freezer, and just pop out a cube whenever, and add it to everything. Hot teas or hot honey water, soups, etc.  It’s antibacterial and anti-inflammatory and it’s also good for your tummy if that’s upset.  These are also really good, they dissolve in hot or cold liquid and they have a lot of real ginger and honey in them.  I buy them at my local food co-op but lots of health food stores carry them as well, and obviously you can get them various places online.

-If you don’t like ginger try a little bitty bit of cayenne pepper in your soups and teas.  Same properties more or less, and surprisingly good with lemon and honey.

-Honey is also antibacterial and has a lower glycemic index than sugar, and it’s very soothing for a sore throat.

-Hot liquids– tea, water, soup– as much as you can consume.  It helps thin your mucous secretions and hydrates you and washes germs out to sea.  Your goal should be to be actively consuming a liquid at every moment you are not peeing instead.

-Garlic and onions, also antibacterial and tasty.  Make garlicky gingery oniony broth and slurp it incessantly.

-Lemon juice for vitamin C (although, note, don’t consume a lot of vitamin C if you’re pregnant).  Fresh lemon juice squeezed into your teas.  Hot lemon ginger water with honey.  Lemon is better than orange juice for vitamin C because it’s better hot and it’s not as sugary so you can adjust the sweetness (by judiciously adding honey) and not get mouth sores or a yeast infection from too much sugar.  Also fresh lemons are cheaper than oranges or the good OJ.

-Zinc lozenges.  Zinc boosts your immune system, and it works best in lozenge form because it’s most effective when it dissolves slowly over a period of time.  You can also get a zinc lozenge that has throat soothing ingredients like honey or menthol (myrrh is good too but those lozenges tend to be pricier.  Don’t consume non-food-grade myrrh). 

-Mashed potatoes (instant if necessary for your energy levels, but it’s cheaper and more nutritious if you can to rough chop, boil, and mash fresh ones) are easy on your stomach, filling, affordable, and easy to fill with sauteed garlic and onions.  Use olive oil or coconut oil instead of butter if you can (see below under Dairy)

-Magnesium for muscle aches.  Ibuprofen is good for aches, headaches and fevers.  

Things to avoid:

-Dairy, because it thickens your mucous secretions

-Caffeine, because it dehydrates you, although if you’re addicted to it don’t go cold turkey or you’ll think you’re dying.  I learned that the hard way.  Teas (black, green, and white) are a better source for it than coffee or soda: less dehydrating, and better with honey and lemon and ginger.

-Things like Dayquil/Nyquil and Mucinex and Theraflu can be good for managing symptoms, but be careful with them because they usually have acetaminophen which is what’s in Tylenol and it can be very dangerous to take too much of it, so don’t take more than the recommended dose, or double up with more than one kind, or with Tylenol.

-Super sugary juices like apple or grape juice.  They’re not BAD for you but you shouldn’t drink too much of them.  They’re not as hydrating as water and tea, or as nourishing as broth, and too much fruit sugar can mess with your stomach, especially if it’s already sore or upset.

-Alcohol; it dehydrates you and has a lot of sugar also, and it’s dangerous to mix with painkillers/anti-inflammatories like acetaminophen and ibuprofen.

Other generally useful things:

-Hot baths and hot showers

-Heating pads and hot water bottles.  Sweating is good for you, as long as you’re replenishing your fluids.  

-Lotion tissues, to avoid chafing your nose raw

-Lots and lots of sleep and rest

-Imagine your cold is the first that Wonder Woman (2017) has heard of human susceptibility to mild illness, and picture her distress, her compassion for your suffering (on top of every other trial you have endured by virtue of living on earth!), and her gentle but inexorable insistence (once you have convinced her there is no Cold Virus God she can slay) that you do absolutely everything in your power to alleviate and shorten this condition of additional suffering, no matter how comparatively mild

12x10 - “Pterodactyl Screeching into the void” - Part 1

My title is borrowed from @postmodernmulticoloredcloak comment on my crazy blogging after first watching this episode earlier. I feel like it is a fitting title for how this episode made me feel. To clarify, these are very very happy pterodactyls.

Steve Yokey wrote this episode and he appears to have well and truly taken up the gap left when Robbie Thompson sadly left the show. In fact this episode to me channels the ghost of Robbie in many different ways. From the fanfiction-esque moments of poor suffering third wheel Sam, to the meta nod to Charlie Bradbury, there is much of Robbie to be found here. Basically, it was bloody perfect.

I feel like there is so much to talk about in this episode that fandom will be chewing on it for months if not years to come. Yokey has picked up the characterisations brilliantly, and seems to have an understanding of what the fandom desperately craves in terms of Castiel, his character, his personality and his development. I adored his sass in this episode. Some other writers *cough*bucklemming*cough* struggle to really capture Castiel’s sass and humour. Showing their lack of understanding of Castiel’s persona and his intelligence and instead writing him in a way that is jarring and sometimes basically stupid. Castiel is far from stupid. In this episode he was written perfectly, in a way I haven’t seen since Edlund’s time. Is that a sweeping statement? Maybe. But I’m still riding my high so let me have it this time.

This episode gave us three of my favourite things. Badass and Sassy Castiel, Overprotective grumpy husband Dean, and poor long suffering brother Sam. (baring in mind this is how they are usually written in fanfiction nowadays this is exactly my jam and I am so so happy to see it play out on screen. Seriously who sold their soul to Crowley for this episode?)

This review will also be in two parts. Because I have so freaking much to say about it.

The first part will focus on destiel, the second on everything else including Castiel’s emotional arc (as separate from destiel), his relationships with angels, angels and gender and Lily Sunder’s character.

- the baudelaires escaped prison with a bench, a loaf of bread, and a jug of water. also it was klaus’ birthday
- the tagliatelle grande
- esme chased the orphans in a hospital records room, wearing stiletto knife heels and pushing fileing cabinets on them

- esme’s lettuce bikini. also a dude flipped over sunbathers with a giant spatula
- vfd left each other secret messages in jelly what LEVEL of extrà
- the ENTIRE 13th book… the sheep on the island. they only drank fermented coconut milk and everyone was stoned all the time. kit arrived on a giant raft of books with the snake and the baudelaires helped her give birth. the library under the apple tree and violet thought “lemony” was such an ugly name

Kinks A-Z ~ Peter Parker (SPIDERMAN)

Warnings: Smut, language

(gif not mine, credit to owner)

Ass: When it came to ass, you weren’t sure who liked it more. Peter loved grabbing your ass, but you loved slapping his when he was in his suit. It worked both ways.

Bruises: Bruises over hickeys. When you first told him this, his eyes went wide in terror but when realizing what you meant - he’s learned to like it. Obviously there were limits to what this involved, but nonetheless, he never disappointed.

Caress: Touch, touch, touch. Peter loved touching your skin, and not always in a sexual way either. His hand would always be rubbing your thigh or his finger dancing circles on your arm.

Dominant: You were more dominant than he was, but he had a way of surprising you. His strength was shocking at times, but nonetheless, you gave in.

Experimenting: Rather it be using his webs to tie your hands to the bed, or even creating a makeshift bed in the air to have sex with you on, you and Peter always experimented new ways to have fun.

Fingering: This was the first thing Peter ever did to you, and the ‘expectation’ was well exceeded. He used to only use one finger, but he enjoys seeing just how far you’d allow him to go. Now, he uses three.

Greedy: You would beg, it wasn’t something you were ashamed of, and Peter adored that. When you pleaded for him, it was the best feeling ever (aside from other things of course), and by begging, this brought out his dominant side.

Hair Pulling: When your fingers would entangle themselves in his hair and pull at the ends, it not only told Peter that he was doing it right but also let him know that you were close to your peak. Hair pulling was always a good thing in his eyes.

Ice: You loved the feeling of ice on your skin, Peter has grown to love it on his as well. He would put the end of an ice cube in his mouth and trail it down your chest, eventually getting to your more sensitive areas.

Jock-strap: This was more of a kink for you than it was for him, he hates wearing a jock-strap but when in his suit it was necessary. You found it hot, but it was even hotter when he took it off.

Kissing: Peter loved kissing you, any time of the day. You could be talking on the phone, and he would just feel the need to kiss your cheek. Make-out sessions were always happening.

Lingering: There were specific parts of your body that Peter enjoyed spending extra time on, he wanted to savor every bit of it as if he wasn’t going to see it again. He knew this drove you crazy.

Masturbation: You would be surprised at how many times Peter masturbates, cause, unfortunately, you’re not always able to be around. There have been a couple times when you’ve caught him, but you would tell him not to stop.

Night: When the lights were out, that was when Peter enjoyed having some fun. It wasn’t that he didn’t like to see you, it was just that having sex when it was dark meant it was more thrilling not to be able to see. It was always a surprise.

Orgasm: Peter got more pleasure making you orgasm than himself, perhaps it was because the way your nails dug into his back and how his name rolled off your lips with so much ecstasy lacing it.

Panties: He didn’t care for anything super sexy, you could be in briefs, and he’d still find it sexy as hell.

Quiet: As innocent as Peter may seem, he had a habit of getting you off in the most inappropriate places. He would tell you to be extra quiet while his fingers dipped under your skirt or he managed to hide under the table and bury his face between your legs.

Riding: It was odd, but there have been a couple times when you’ve ridden Peter in his suit with and without his mask on. You always took control when it was clear that he had a long day from ‘saving the city.’

Spanking: This wasn’t his idea. It felt awkward at first, but after doing it a couple times, he’s learned that it’s actually kind of hot. There were occasions when he’d get back from a job, still in his suit, and you would ask him to spank you just because.

Testing: Peter was nervous, but sometimes he would have the courage to test your limits. And, to his benefit, it’s rare that you’ve had to tell him to stop.

Uncovered: It made Peter nervous when you undressed in front of him, rather it be for sex or just simply changing clothes. It was one of his weaknesses, seeing your bare body standing before him.

Vanilla sex: He wasn’t very confident in anything past vanilla sex, but when it came to making love to you - he deserved bonus points.

Wax: Dripping wax on your body made Peter harder than he already was, he knew you liked a little bit of pain, and it was pleasing to see how your back arched slightly to the feeling of the hot liquid touching your skin.

X means Yes: Trying to build up his confidence, you created a system where, if Peter did something you liked you would use your finger to draw an X across his chest. This was exciting for him because not only were you touching, but also he knew he was giving you pleasure.

Yell: You liked it when Peter yelled because it wasn’t often that he did it. It showed the more dominant side of him you yearn to see.

Zig-Zag: When it came to sex, Peter never went in one direction. He would always mix things up to make it more delightful for him as well as you. Sometimes, he would skip the foreplay and just use his fingers to make you wet before thrusting into you.

Coping With Body Memories

Also known as somatic memories, body memories can be an effect of trauma and present as physical problems that cannot be explained by a medical cause. These memories can be physically painful to experience and are a common issue that survivors deal with. Here’s a list of things that help me get through it:

  • Breathe
  • Remember it will pass.
  • Focus on the feeling and getting it away
  • Remember that that feeling actually isn’t happening in the moment
  • Go to a private place and meditate
  • Breathe
  • Remember that it is all over and you are safe now.
  • Focus on your surroundings and other sensations (hold an ice cube, drink hot tea, chew gum, or exercise)
  • Talk or write about what feelings/memories are brought up by the body memories
  • Use positive self-talk to get through the feelings
  • Repeat affirmations
  • Do grounding exercises: name 5 things you see, 5 things you smell, 5 things you feel, 5 things you hear, and 5 things you taste (Note: donít do the senses that are triggering in that moment)
  • Do something nice for your body like taking a bath, putting on lotion or a nice smelling perfume, or wear comfy clothes
  • Write a letter to your body venting your feelings
  • Stretch
  • Aroma Therapy
  • Ask your body what it needs
