The Ceremony

4

Pages 187-200

After the ceremony, a banquet was held, a reservation was made at Renji’s favourite bar and eatery, ‘Daruma Bar’, not far from the Kuchiki clan’s ceremonial shrine.

Based on reflection of what had happened last time, this time it was Renji who decided to conduct the arrangements for the restaurant, but complaints arose from Rangiku immediately, “if only you had left it up to Kuchiki, we might have been able to drink at a high class ryotei restaurant again~!”

“High class restaurant? what do you mean, lieutenant!?”

When the 13th division’s third seat, Kotsubaki Sentaro pressed Rukia for a reply, he received a shoulder tackle from Kiyone who interrupted the conversation.

a sterek fic, college au, 2k+

“You broke my lamp,” is what Lydia leads with when she enters the apartment that afternoon.

“Wasn’t me,” Derek replies without bothering to look up from his book.

Derek can hear Lydia taking off her coat and putting her keys in a bowl by the front door. He keeps his eyes on his book as her footsteps come closer to his location on the lounge chair. When they stop, he looks up at her.

She’s standing with hands on her hips and one eyebrow arched upwards.

“Do you want to try that again, Mr I’m-the-only-other-person-who-lives-here-and-I-never-bring-anyone-over?”

Derek looks down, pretending to read, but really just avoiding Lydia’s perceptive glare.

“It was Stiles.”

“Stiles… Stilinski?”

“Yes.”

“The guy you abhor.”

“Yes.”

“It was Stiles’ fault.”

“His shirt hit it.”

Lydia hums and then yanks Derek’s book from his hands. She places it face up on their coffee table then sits next to it.

“His shirt hit it.” She repeats.

Derek sighs heavily. “I wasn’t exactly looking where I threw it.”

Lydia nods slowly then gives up and shakes her head.

“I don’t want to ask. I feel like I’ve missed several hundred steps in this story.”

“You and me both,” Derek says.

Lydia leaves him to it and he picks up his book.

-

“And furthermore,” Stiles rants, following on Derek’s heels so closely that he steps on his shoe with ever other stride, “I know you borrowed the only copy of our textbook from the library and have been renewing it over and over just to stop me from getting to it before the finals.”

Derek rolls his eyes and keeps walking, speeding up.

“Oi! Hey! Are you even hearing me, Derek?”

“Hard not to when you never. Stop. Taking.”

Stiles has the nerve to grab at Derek’s shirt then, pulling him to a stop. Derek turns so abruptly that they collide with force and he has to take a step back to keep on his feet.

“Give me the textbook,” Stiles demands.

“No. I’m using it.”

“I don’t believe you.”

“Well I don’t care about that. In fact,” Derek steps up to Stiles, posturing with the minuscule amount of height he has on him, “I don’t care about you in general. I don’t care near enough to purposefully sabotage your education. I don’t care.”

“See, the fact that you pointed that out several times just now, leads me to not believe you.” Stiles steps up and his breath covers Derek’s face when he next speaks. “Give. Me. The. Textbook.”

“No.”

“I’ll make you.”

Derek draws his eyes down Stiles’ skinny frame, a task made difficult by how close they’re standing.

“Will you now?”

“Yes.”

“Fine.” Derek shrugs then pivots, walking away from Stiles. He hears the spluttering from behind him and smiles to himself at his win.

“I hate you!” Stiles shouts at Derek.

“Don’t care!” Derek throws back.

Shokugeki no Souma Season 3 Episode 1: Momo Akanegakubo’s Cake

Well, I’m back, it’s been like years since I did a last post. Let’s see how this goes.

Side note, yet important note:  My heart goes out to all the victims in Las Vegas. It’s crazy and a real tragedy. I have a friend who was in Mandalay Bay when it happened and she heard all the gunshots.  I seriously have no idea what drives a person to desire to take another’s life…I encourage you to donate in any way you can whether it be financially or finding a way to make a blood donation. Thank you.

We’re back for another season and I’m super HYPE! I have some free time now and have mostly recovered from a hernia surgery so I can cook and bake things again!
This episode did a quick glance at 4th seat’s cake. Momo Akanegakubo is part of the Elite Ten and the best patissiere in all of the Academy. Damn I wish I had her skills. 

Disclaimer: I started the process before I watched the OVA that reveals the inside of the cake and some of the flavors. I just used what I had on hand at home. Also the inside is not pretty, I have warned you.

I also made two versions, One that was smaller and one that I tried to make larger and with more height. I ONLY had those two and I dropped the bigger one so I tried to re-glaze it but it got all messed up so I took a picture of the only decent side :P

version 1: smaller and the caramel was wack so I had to redo it.

version 2: a little more height. but yeah I couldn’t get the color to match the anime (nor a maple leaf garnish, maybe it just fell off a tree who knows?) but tis’ still a pretty color no? I mean I guess it’s close to the anime?

The DISASTER inside, oh well. at least I tried…it’s supposed to be strawberry mousse, rosemary crumble, yuzu curd and brown butter cake.

Thank you for your support and staying followed to me despite me not posting at all! I will most likely be working on random episodes as I see fit and plausible.

The next flurry of pictures is the process. so you can stop here really if you’re not interested. I do have a couple more pictures of the finished dessert at the end of it with a little extra treat on the plate. Feel free to read more!

This Was a Bad Idea

This Was a Bad Idea by evansrogerskitten

Inspired by this tweet. Shit, I’m sorry Jeff. This just happened and I blame my art and even I’m ashamed LOL Also @jml509 because you’re also to blame! 

Warnings: omg its JDM masturbation and again, oops. But it was needed after this tweet and I needed this meta shit. WC: 700-somethin’

Oh, and in no way is this beta-ed. I just wrote it and also, I’ve had the margaritas. 


Jeff snapped the screen shot as he stared down at his phone.

 “Huh.” he muttered, the small screen with Tumblr on the main page. He’d accidentally come across it, and following the link wasn’t a good idea. The house was quiet, yet he listened for a moment to make sure everything was still. He reclined back on his couch, peering at the website through his black-framed glasses.

anonymous asked:

I'm starting to think that half of the time the root of all this aspec and split attraction hate is in the fact that ppl just resent us for having re re-evaluate their own sexuality. I had someone ranting at me bc they realised they're demi and they blame me for mentioning the term bc now they "feel like a freak". I mean, they don't have to use the label at all but internalising phobias isn't our fault, unsplit attraction isn't the norm and being demi doesn't make anyone a freak or a snowflake.

I think to some degree this is absolutely true. I think it’s rarely that they are secretly also ace (despite having my own ‘oops I’m ace too and mad at you for it’ story) and far more ‘No I was sold the gay straight binary. Anything that is different from that is weird, and wrong, and I don’t want to think about this for a second more.’

That mentality is not only false, but harmful to over half of the community which doesn’t fit the gay straight binary. I think aces are naturally queer and natural allies to other queer people. But others see us (as well as bisexuals and pansexuals) as a comparison point and project their own fear and insecurities on. 

octarine-ash  asked:

Ok, penumbra makeup headcanons! Which character is most likely to: have immaculate makeup at all times, never wear makeup, wear makeup or not as they feel like it regardless of the occasion, mess up their makeup and fix it, mess up their makeup and give up and wash it off, mess up their makeup and not bother to fix it?

oh, damn, puttin the ball in MY court, huh? i like this a lot

immaculate makeup….seems like a cecil and cassie kanagawa special. in, like, a neon-blue lipstick and violet eyeliner and false gold eyelashes way for cecil and in a kinda….vantablack eyeshadow and hair gel and teeth filed to sharp points way for cassie. also i love and miss the kanagawa twins they’re flawless and immaculate characters 

never wear makeup….is probably sasha wire. sasha wire cuts her hair with scissors in her bathroom. sasha wire was made to wear a uniform because as a kid she just owned five identical versions of the same black sweater. makeup isn’t really in her (admittedly extensive and kinda terrifying) toolkit

i guess i’m givin the next slot to peter because it’s not something he really needs to use in his disguises, so he really only wears makeup for the Drama of it. also occasionally to help himself feel more put-together and untouchable if he ever Experiences A Setback and needs a little help getting over it. (also occasionally because this $300 mascara just kinda fell off the shelf and into his pocket! and by the time he discovered it he was already leaving the orbit of the next star system oops what a shame ah well waste not want not)

RITA messes up her lipstick all the time because it comes off when she eats or gets on her teeth when she puts juno on hold to re-apply it in the reflection from her comms but she’s a secretary and a secretary’s gotta look presentable, and also this color (vivid matte orange) was a gift from frannie

hERE’s the rub, lads, is that both alessandra and juno would be the type to mess their makeup up trying to apply it because they don’t really make the effort all that often, but i think alessandra would give up and wash it off and juno would just snap the eyeliner pencil in half and stomp on it and walk away with a big smudge over one half of his face (which is…ok i mean his eyes are already maybe not the most. symmetrical. and also he’s a looker). love these ladies sm

Interview with Scott Livingston.  Please excuse any typos or errors on my part.  I did omit some of the transitional language (um, like, etc) and some of the reaction laughs, and there were times when Scott, in particular, would say something that would sound like agreement while T was talking but I would miss the exact words.


SL: Okay, hi everybody.  Scott Livingston here for Culture is Queen Reconditioning HQ.  I am very lucky to have two people I get to work with all the time, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, who are wonderful skaters in ice dance and they have won a gold medal and a silver medal and are going for another gold coming up this next February in the next Olympics that are to come.  So I asked them to come today, spend some time talking with me talking about culture.  Um, but what I really want to talk about and prefaced before we got together was the concept of what it takes to win a gold medal.  And the reason that I want to talk about it, and what I sort of talked to [Tessa] about on the table was, everybody has this picture of goal, and you get to the goal and everything is going to be wonderful and you did it, and so then what was if feeling like afterwards.  So I sort of want to take apart through a couple of different questions, first of all, what does it take to win that gold medal, and then after you do it what that feels like, and then we’ll go around the circle after that.  But the  one is, what do you think it really takes, when you think of the things that you had to do, you had to commit to, to make yourselves win that gold medal, what does it take?

Scott: That’s a tough question, and I think that when we think back to 2010, there were so many firsts for us.  We had never been world champions, we’d never been to an Olympic games, so in a lot of ways leading up to 2010, we weren’t sure what it takes, so we had to rely on different mentors - Marnie McBean, David Pelltier - to kind of guide us in a way.  And I think in 2010, we were fantastic skaters, and we knew that we wanted to win at all costs, and I think that’s what really got us through, we just found a way.  I remember Tessa’s quote for the year was, “I don’t know how, but we just have to win the Olympics in February."  And I think kinda that faith was a big key to our success, but I think when we look back, we were such – our strength was in our skating, and not so much the team around us.

Tessa:  Also, I think even from a young age, we made incredible sacrifices.  We moved away from home at 13 and 15, um, we didn’t do prom, movies, sleepovers, parties, things like that.  I’m not sure I thought of it as a sacrifice at the time, because we just wanted to be the best novice skaters we could be, we wanted to be the best junior skaters we could be, but looking back, I’m impressed that as teenagers -

Scott: Right.

Tessa: - we did that and wanted that, there’s almost a disconnect, and I think, just that internal drive, it was within us, we were competitors, and early on, we were willing to do things our competitors weren’t, which was probably a bit of a differentiator.

SL: So what do you think those things were, when you think back – was it more hours on the ice, was it a greater commitment to what you reflected on when you were on the ice… like, how do you differentiate what the other skaters were doing and what you did?

Tessa: We observed a lot.  And we committed to working differently as a team, more efficiently, more effectively, in a more supportive partnership, at least in comparison to those around us.  We had the opportunity to train with many different types of teams and I think for us, a lot of the root of our success has been the foundation we’ve built our partnership on, and that’s not something we take lightly; we’re still working on that to this day.  But that really, kind of set the tone, and then we both knew that we were committed to this one common goal, and then every single day, we didn’t doubt that we were each showing up to give everything to invest in that one purpose.  So I don’t think that we were bogged down by too many other thoughts, you know, we weren’t fighting, we weren’t battling in other ways, it was just, ‘this is our goal and how do we get there’.

Scott: It was very clear.

Tessa: Pretty simple.

SL:  So to play off that, because that plays off the idea that somebody has a particular goal, maybe it’s losing weight, maybe it’s building a business, whatever you’re doing, it doesn’t necessarily have to be a gold medal, but then you get it, then what?  Like, did you feel, the way you expected to feel and what changed for you after?

Scott: I think the magical thing about 2010 is that it felt exactly how I thought it would feel.  I dreamt of that moment, being on the podium together, being in that position together, being in Vancouver being surrounded by Canadians, and it was exactly how I dreamed it would be, and I think that’s pretty rare in life.  And the medals, I remember when they put the medals around our necks it was just as heavy as I thought it was going to be, and at Worlds they put the medal, and it was like [Scott mimes a very light medal], this is it? and we did all this?  But it felt right, and seeing all the school kids was a great experience, but then re-setting after that was a lot different than I thought.  There was a huge come-down period, what we called an Olympic hangover, that lasted probably for the better part of a year and a half, it was a lengthy time to try and get re-motivated.  And going into those next four years – we always say we learned more in those years between 2010 and 2014 than in our whole career before that.  And we were trying to reinvent ourselves, trying to push ourselves to skate to different music, to move differently, to try and figure out what was behind Tessa’s leg injuries, so there’s a whole bunch that went on in those four years.

Tessa:  But interestingly, while that Olympic experience lived up to our expectations, it didn’t change us -

Scott: [?]

Tessa:  - and I’m not sure we had talked openly about that before the Olympic games, but there is some anticipation that you have this perfect recipe, this quick fix to success, or that you’ll just be happier, that people will treat you differently, but like -

Scott: Yeah.

Tessa: - I don’t know what the expectation really is, but nothing did, like nothing really changed, because the people that were in our lives on a daily basis remained the same, we were just Tessa and Scott -

Scott: Hopefully.

Tessa: (laughs) Yeah, and I remember that, just to fast forward to the second time we won the world championships in Nice, France, 2012, and we won the competition and there we were in the South of France, with a few days off, and nothing could be better, and I was sitting with my mom having lunch, and she looked over and I was just crying, bawling my eyes out, and she said, "What’s wrong?” and I said, “It just didn’t feel like I expected it to feel,” so I think we do set ourselves up sometimes, and if there’s one thing we could tell younger skaters, having had a bit of success, that it has to be about the process, that the feeling of getting the medals, that external validation, is nothing compared to gratification you get simply from hard work, or from chasing a goal…

Scott: Which brings us kind of  to 2014, because that’s what we did exceptionally well, because now when we look back to 2014, I think that people think we’re less excited because we’re silver medalists, but the way that we prepared for that and how much we enjoyed the process, we really took in the experience, we only have fond memories of Sochi, and kind of being really in that Olympic experience and taking full advantage of it, I mean, that’s priceless to us.

SL:  That’s awesome.  You mentioned something about feeling the medal weight.  Did you guys see winning a gold medal before it happened, did you envision it, was it part of getting you there, seeing it?

Tessa: Seeing it…. and also falling flat on our faces and coming dead last was a vision -

Scott: Yes.

Tessa: - was something we had to deal with.  I think we saw every possible scenario, but the overreaching one was gold, and living through that, and trying to visualize everything, from the smell of the arena to the feeling when we’d walk in to the look we’d give each other before skating, all of that had been visualized so many times that it felt like we had lived it by the time we did go through the motions…

Scott: And then when we did live it, it felt normal, and we knew, as soon as we were in that venue, we knew.  I mean, we probably would have slept easier if we really knew, but we had that energy because we’d envisioned it so many times.

SL: So one of the things I want to try and transcend into, from what you’re doing now, that helps someone that is in business or trying to achieve something, is now you’ve achieved these things now, just like someone who has taken a business to the next level, it’s making money, how do you reframe it so again it’s exciting, interesting, something you want to achieve and going back to the process, what’s different now for now about the process than for you then?

Tessa: Well, one the critical things in evaluating our comeback, so to speak, was the why, and why are you doing this and what are your intentions and what are you hoping to get out of this, and once we realized that those intentions were totally pure…. I mean, it was for the love of the sport and to push ourselves and see how capable we are to skate differently… all those things just gave us so much room for growth in every different facet of our training, and that’s what exciting for us.

Scott: I think the biggest reason we came back was…. we had success in our career, and I mean a lot of people thought why not just hang your hat on that, but I think in our minds, we hadn’t explored our complete and full potential, and we have more to give, and when we watch tape - [laughs] which we don’t do very often - of old programs, but when we do watch tapes, we just think, there’s more than that, and we owe it to ourselves to at least try, and then also… just because we can, I mean we owe to to ourselves to try to live to our full potential, and we couldn’t even dream of sitting at home on the couch while Canadian athletes march in Pyeongchang.

Tessa: It’s funny, I’m just realizing now, that even after these next Olympics we’re still going to feel that way -

Scott: I know.

Tessa: - you know, we’re always going to be chasing that, here will be some void or feeling that, if only we’d tried this, or if only we could do this in our skating… I’m not sure we’ll ever be fully satisfied, but I guess that’s the nature of…

Scott: We’ll be ready for four years.  [all laughing]

SL:  We’ll see.  To finish then, I don’t want to get into post careers, that’s always an interesting question, but when you look at the things that you’re learning as you go through your journeys, about how you’ve set yourselves up for success, do you feel there are two, three fundamentals you could leave people with, that you feel are intrinsic to success, like what you really have to do to commit yourself to that?

Scott: Well, I think one of the big things would be constantly evolving.  I mean what’s so interesting about our story is that what won in 2010 wouldn’t have won in 2014 and definitely won’t win in 2018, and I know in 2014 I definitely thought we were better but wasn’t quite good enough to win, but we’re constantly –

Tessa: Better than ourselves in 2010.

Scott: Yes.  Yep.  Sorry, thanks for clearing that up […..] [Tessa and SL laughing]  But that’s what sports is, to me, constantly evolving, and you talked about getting that skill set that will help you in life, and that we’re hopefully setting ourselves up, that we’ll be able to problem solve and create a life for ourselves outside of sports.

Tessa: And I think that as athletes, 95% of feedback we get is constructive criticism, and we’re constantly looking at sort of our faults, and being self-aware enough to realize building those things and making them strengths, and working on your weaknesses, you know, sometimes it’s not fun, to face, but that can be a difference maker -

Scott: Absolutely.

Tessa: - and for us, building a team around us, that’s given us a huge advantage, and a big edge, in so many ways, mentally, physically and emotionally.  You need the right people around you who lift you up, inspire you and you can kind of tap into as a resource, you know… we acknowledge that we are not experts in these fields so we need to bring in this team…

Scott: Well, and that’s what’s so cool… I mean, you have to be willing to do what your competitor is not.  Usually, what your competitor isn’t willing to do, neither are you, so going into something we just learned last weekend [nudges T]….

Tessa: [laughing] But now we’re preaching it.

Scott: But I mean, that’s so important, and I think what we try and do, we’re not completely successful by any means, but it’s something we’ve focussed on and trying to do what our competitors won’t and patch up our weaknesses.

SL: Process, not perfection.

Tessa: Totally.

Scott: [laughing] We know somebody who says that.

SL:  Well, I thank you both, this was awesome, lots of learning pieces, and thank you for taking the time.

Tessa: Thank you, Scott [Livingston].

[pause]

Scott: All right.

Tessa: That was a fun one.  I felt like we could talk forever.

SL: We could.

Tessa: [laughing] Did you mean to press record, or…?

SL: I did.  Thirteen minutes.

Blame

Summary: Blame follows the reader after the events of Stone Cold.

A/N: Back by popular demand, this is a continuation of Stone Cold and I’m not gonna lie, I may have cried a little when I wrote this!


You regretted everything. When Bucky left for cryo, you were inconsolable and the only person who could ever break through your heartbroken haze was Steve. He reminded you so much of Bucky in so many ways that you couldn’t help but want to be near him. Steve helped you rise from the ashes, the pieces of your heart being taped back together, yet parts of you were still missing. On the outside, you appeared whole, like you were beginning to move on, but on the inside, there were still parts of you that not even Steve could heal, only time.

Neither of you meant for things to end up the way they did. But they happened anyway. In amongst your shared anguish, your found solace in one another, awakening parts of you that had been shut off to the world after Bucky’s departure. Steve made you smile in a way no one else had been able to since Bucky, he made your stomach do little cartwheels when he smiled at you, but most importantly, he made you feel alive again. Something you weren’t sure you’d feel again.

Fast-forward one and a half years and you were the happiest you’d been for a long time, but the second you heard of Bucky’s re-awakening, you could feel old wounds splitting open and a wave of guilt wash over you, crushing your soul once again. You’d betrayed Bucky in more ways than you could imagine, but you couldn’t help the way your heart felt.

apprendere  asked:

Hey, you may have talked about this before, (if so, then oops, sorry for repeating questions) but, what's your writing process like? Especially regarding planning or outlining stories

You’re so adorable, thinking I do real planning and outlining. :D Mostly when I’m doing my own writing, I just start at the beginning and go. (…Usually. Sometimes not. For instance, Stark Naked Science had a structure that suggested itself fairly early on, so I adapted the plot to fit that structure. Branches of Pine also sort of forcibly organized itself, because it was structured around various winter holidays.)

But I actually don’t write that many long and complicated fics on my own. Most of my longer fics have been written with @tisfan. And that’s more of a process.

Most of the time, it starts in chat:

tisfan: So I had an idea.
me: Oh no.
tisfan: What if [literally anything here]?
me: Oh, that would cause so much trouble. [Character] would be like [reaction].
tisfan: omg yes. And then [another character] would [different reaction].
[This continues for anywhere from 5 minutes to 2 hours.]
me: …Okay I’m making a doc.

And then I make a googledoc and invite Tis to join it as a co-author (or she makes the doc and invites me) and at that point, depending on the specific idea in question and its complexity and whether it’s an established ‘verse or a new one and, idk, the alignment of the planets or something, we have a couple of different processes.

(Putting the rest of this under a cut, because it got long and also because there might be spoilers for readers who aren’t caught up on all the fic yet. The stuff that is spoiler-y for things that haven’t been POSTED yet have been redacted.)

miyakokurono  asked:

Zen reacts to a MC who really hates mornings as she's a night owl and depending if she has work or not she gets up at either 6:45(working) or anywhere between 12-2pm and usually skips breakfast if she misses it. Sorry if it sounds like a odd request, feel free to ignore if its a bit confusing. I just thought it'd be interesting to see how Zen would react. I also have a tendency to skip breakfast if I miss it...oops

I´m like that too – uhh getting early up for work is really bad.



Zen himself gets really early up for his daily routine. He loves to spend time with you of course but when he knows that you hate to get up early he lets you sleep as long as it goes.When its time for to get up and you are tempted to use the snooze button Zen is their to make sure you get up in time so you not need to rush. Since he is already up for quite a while you not need to worry over breakfast since he made it for both of you. You can just do your morning routine like showering dressing without having to worry. When you are bit moody in the morning Zen does everything to cheer you up.If he succeeds he feels really accomplished if he doesn´t he gives you more time till you are a bit more awake. He gives you a good morning kiss no matter how moody you are. He makes sure that you eat enough before you go.


Of course there are mornings where Zen has to go to work early so he wakes you up just before he leaves just because he cant life with his good morning kiss. Sometimes you get right away up and sometimes you end up passing back out till the alert goes off. that is when it gets hectic for you. You then always rush threw everything to get out in time just to find friendly reminders of Zen everywhere to make sure that you eat. Zen made sticky nots everywhere some of them tell you that he loves you and he is sad that he could not spend time with you. Some of them remind you on thinks like your keys or wallet. The main important one is on the door outside that reminds you to eat once more ad to cal him when you are late. Otherwise he will worry about you. He always manages to call or at least text you before you start working just to tell you to have a nice day or to tell you how much he misses you. Sometimes he leaves you random messages to complain over his director or to tell you how the rehearsals are going.


When you are back before him what is uselessly the case you text him to tell him that you are their. Zen really appreciates that. Once he is home you both talk over your day and spend as much time together as it goes.

On weekends when Zen has a day day or at least a half day of he always wakes you up as early as it goes. Even when you hate that and just want to sleep in sometimes. Zen hates that you get grumpy at him for that but he just wants to enjoy the time he has with you. Since his performances re uselessly in the evening he is late home even on weekends what works for you being a night owl quite nicely. Zen is often still hyped from his work even when he is really beat. He often tells you how great he was again on stage and asks you to see him soon again. You promise him to come soon again. After all you can only expect so many free tickets from Zen.

You spend half of the night talking even when Zen is really beat but its nice to see you full of energy like that so he really does not mind. When Zen has a day off and you work he is waiting for you at home he makes your favourite food. On those days Zen puts a move in so you can cuddle on the couch together. On the rare occasion that you both have a day off he lets you sleep as long as you want but since its so rare you uselessly wake up quite early from excitement. Since Zen always has plans for these days. Its often something that you mentioned to him once. Like you wanted to see this movie in theatre or you wanted to go to a park. Whatever it is Zen always remember those thinks and he makes sure you have the best time with him.

Overall you get barely the chance to skip breakfast when you are with Zen unless you really not check any of his notes.  Zen has to get up really early and has no issues with  but it he understands that you are not like this. He does not aspect you to change that fact about you you cant really do anything about it anyway. Zen barely needs sleep most of the time so he has no issues to stay longer up to get a bit extra time with you. As long you not get too mad at him for waking you sometimes on the weekends up you both will be fine.

Huge thanks and big hugs to everyone following and still loving Sterek!! Sorry this is kind of lengthy, I was on vacay and caught up on some fic reading. 

affettuoso by bleepobleep | 13,066

Derek mentally kicks himself for just standing there like a lovestruck fool, but it’s been exactly forty-six days since he saw Stiles, and he still remembers the taste of his skin, how Stiles feels underneath him.

All Stirred Up by jsea, marguerite_26 | 49,430

Derek’s first duty as a new deputy is the early morning coffee run to The Leaky Carafe, and it’s not long before he discovers that the quirky barista has a knack for making the perfect drink. Every time. Even before you order.

But is it intuition, luck or magic that has all Stiles’ customers leaving happy?

Bite Down Hard by KuriKuri | 25,730

For a moment, Derek can’t breathe.

Because moles aren’t the only thing marring the pale skin of Stiles’ neck. Oh no, that’s –

– that’s a bond bite. A bond bite which Stiles definitely did not have yesterday, and which appears to have roughly the same dimensions as Derek’s own mouth.

Shit.

(Or: In which Secret Service Agent Derek Hale accidentally gets bonded to First Son Stiles Stilinski. Oops.)

By a Law Divine by mirrorkill | 23,171 | * Favorite

Okay, so, kissing Stiles. That’s a weird thing that Derek’s doing now. He has no idea where it’s even coming from, especially considering bickering and fighting is their usual state of existence. And then he does find out where it’s coming from: A curse that’s making everyone in town kiss someone they have mutual feelings for.

…yeah, Derek’s not even sure why he’s surprised by that.

Choice by Omni | 8,613

Derek knows what it feels like to not really have a choice, what it’s like to be manipulated. He’d never take away someone’s right to choose freely. The fear of even accidentally doing so is enough to hold him back from acting on his own feelings.

Stiles has never had a problem making his own choices, and fuck anyone who would try to tell him he can’t.

(Or: Stiles gets bitten by a different alpha, but of course would prefer to have Derek as his alpha. And also just, you know, have Derek.)

don’t go changing (to try and please me) by Menacherie | 2,680

It’s not exactly planned, but it still manages to fuck things up, which is how life goes in Beacon Hills. He should be used to it by now, but he’s not.

Font size twenty-four by Vendelin | 10,430

Stiles is a librarian and research professional extraordinaire. So, when Derek comes in, asking for help with research for his new book, it’s only natural for Stiles to offer his help. He just didn’t count on late night waffle eating, or that his heart would go boom.

I Thought You Would Like That by Emela | 7,325 | * Praise Kink (fans self)

Yeah, that was pretty bad, but what was worse was having spent the last three years pretending to hate Stiles, because it was better than being the guy who failed at emotions and got rejected for them, and now Derek was locked in the same room as him under the promise they would only be let out when they “did something about their sexual tension”.

OR

The one where Derek and Stiles get locked in a room together at an office Christmas party, and end up having sex.

Noteworthy Observations by LadyDrace | 3,776

In which Derek recieves complimentary notes in his locker from a secret admirer, and though it turns out they weren’t actually for him, things turn out pretty well in the end.

Of Witches and Werewolves by alexenglish | 8,713

“I need you to have sex with Derek Hale like yesterday,” Lydia says, slamming her bag down on the table with more force than strictly necessary, mouth a tight line of displeasure. Stiles chokes on his boxed apple juice, sputtering, limbs flailing.

“Say it louder,” Stiles hisses, leaning forward so they can talk in low tones. “I don’t think they heard you in the back.”

Red Velvet by arrowofcarnations | 7,690

Stiles is pretty used to people coming to visit him at Sweet Stuff when he’s baking. It’s only when Isaac starts bringing along one Derek Hale that things start to get really interesting.

Shared Canvases by butyoureyessaidyes | 18,167

Apparently, Derek is being stalked by a renegade graffiti activist.

Or the college AU where Derek is a serious art student, and Stiles is the graffiti artist ruining his life (until he’s not).

Three Phone Calls by pandabomb | 15,696

“You’re not a hooker, Stiles.”
“Okay, yes, true, but—for a thousand dollars…”

An AU in which Scott and Stiles live in a shitty apartment in NYC, Lydia is still queenly, and Derek is a clueless rich guy who mistakes Stiles for a hooker.

Unwind by coffeeinallcaps | 15,047

Hope you enjoy your present, the text from Erica says. Payment’s taken care of. You can thank me tomorrow.

“So you’re a werewolf, huh,” the guy says when Derek looks up at him again. His gaze drifts down from Derek’s face to the rest of his body, slowly, shamelessly. When it’s traveled back up and their eyes meet again, the corner of the guy’s mouth twitches up into a cocky little half-smile. “I fucking love working with werewolves.” AU in which businessman Derek falls in love with escort Stiles.

You Can Hear It In the Silence by Mimiminaj | 7,241

Stiles focused on Derek’s face long enough to see a flicker of regret flash across it. Good. Serves him right for throwing him against a brick wall. Stiles felt his back hit said well, and he went limp as Derek worked his coat closed.
“I don’t think you can take me to the hospital though, Derek.”
The hands stilled.
“And why is that?”
“I don’t think they allow dogs.”
“I’m going to kill you.”


And one honorable mention; ‘cause drunk Derek singing country love songs deserves a re-read!! 

and i can easily understand, how easily you could take my man by bleepobleep | 1,908

“Your smile is like a breath of spring, your voice is soft like summer rain, and I cannot compete with you, Jordan…” 

The voice drifts along the hallway of the loft building, a clear tenor that’s rich with sorrow. Stiles stops in his tracks, is that…Derek? Singing a country song, twangs and all. It sounds good though. He must be still drunk, he’s not even getting the song right.

PERIDOT WAS NEVER GOING TO BETRAY THE CRYSTAL GEMS

So I’ve seen a few people talking about how Peridot was going to sell the Crystal Gems out to Yellow Diamond or maybe just get a ride home but then changed her mind and I think that’s not a correct assessment.

We now know that Peridot believes that the Earth is worth protecting and she values it even over her loyalty to Yellow Diamond. That’s not to say that she wasn’t still loyal to Yellow Diamond, it’s just that Earth is higher on her list. Knowing that,and knowing what her plan ultimately is, colors her earlier words to Steven and the Gems in a different light.

One of the first things Peridot says to Steven is that Yellow Diamond is “the most perfect, the most reasonable, rational, efficient decider ever to exist in the universe.” Keep that in mind as we move forward

Peridot later says that she’s “figured it out.” If she was going to betray the Crystal Gems or get a lift off the planet, what’s there to figure out?

The next thing she says is that the Crystal Gems keep messing up but it doesn’t matter because she, and more importantly the planet, can be of use to Yellow Diamond. She then says that she needs to contact Yellow Diamond to reveal what she’s discovered.

Steven then asks her why she would want to do that because all the Diamonds wanted to do was hollow out the Earth and now blow it up with the Cluster, and she responds by saying “That’s the POINT!”

Well, what IS the point? The point is that if Earth can be of use to Yellow Diamond, why would she want to destroy it? She’s “the most perfect, the most reasonable, rational, efficient DECIDER ever to exist in the universe.” (I said we’d be coming back to this)

Once she finishes her report to YD, Peridot launches into what is basically a sales pitch. “The organic ecosystem [of earth] creates resources unique to this world. We can’s sacrifice all that potential just for one geoweapon!” This next part is important : “I’d like to tell you some plans I came up with to utilize the planet without disrupting the local-” she’s cut off by YD here, but I think she was about to say ecosystem or wildlife or something like that.

Let me repeat that. Peridot had PLANS that would allow YD to make use of Earth without destroying it or even disrupting the things living on it. This is the entire reason she needed the communicator. She didn’t want to get off Earth or to tell YD about the Crystal Gems so they could be destroyed, this was her last ditch effort to save the planet in the only way she truly knew how, appealing to the authority of the Gem she truly believed in.

 If YD wanted the Earth preserved for whatever plans Peridot presented, then the cluster would have to be destroyed or at least deactivated. She might even send Homeworld resources to help. This would probably be less risky then the drill plan, and if the Crystal Gems could be hidden from YD it would probably be a lot safer for them than burrowing down into the mantle of the planet in a home-made drill.

Some might say “Well, if she wasn’t going to betray the Crystal Gems, why not go to them with her plan?” Because I don’t think she really fully trusts them yet. She sure as hell doesn’t trust them to rely on a Diamond for help. The Crystal Gems have been pretty consistently anti-authoritarian and kinda violent the entire time she’s known them, there’s no way she could trust them to go along with a diplomatic solution to the problem at hand.

I’d also like to point out how quickly Peridot breaks down and confronts YD. How quickly? Literally the instant she understands that YD doesn’t care what the Earth can give her and most importantly she wants the Earth to DIE. YD finishes her sentence and within half a second Peridot’s yelling NO. She was loyal to YD right up until the moment when she was absolutely sure that there was no way to get her to spare the Earth.

But we know where her true loyalties lie.

TLDR: Peridot never wanted to betray the Crystal Gems or the Earth, she just hoped she could use Yellow Diamond to save it. When that didn’t work she burned her bridges and officially picked her side. And I couldn’t be happier.

EDIT: I just re-watched the ending of the episode and Peridot even says “I thought I could reason with her.” Garnet noticed it too, saying “You thought you could change her mind.”

So maybe Beca is hella sick and thinks Chloe should stay away/won't let her kiss her so she doesn't get sick too but C does anyway etc etc fluff etc :)

“Oh my god,” Beca groaned when Chloe walked into the room with a steaming mug of tea, “You might actually be my hero.” 

Chloe smiled, practically skipping at the offhanded compliment Beca had thrown at her. Beca was slumped in the corner of the room, refusing to lie in bed because “it hurt too much”, half her bodies huddled under a blanket and the other half with clothes pushed up to shirk as much of her body heat as possible. There was a horrendous line of pink under her nose, which Chloe guessed was stuffed because there was a small mountain of tissues being built next to her, and Beca was currently talking like she was wearing a nose plug in some ridiculous but somehow still sexy (?) version of Urkel. 

Chloe, for the record, was very confused by this comparison and her body’s reaction to it.

Fic: Start Spreading The News

Kurt and Blaine have a surprise for Kurt’s parents. <3
~1090 words, PG, fluff fluff fluff and also fluff.

“So, what are you really doing here?”

“Not even gonna let us get in the house, Dad?” Kurt responded, dropping his heavy suitcase on the floor in the entryway before moving forward enough to let Blaine come in, too.

“I would’ve accosted you right at the airport, but you two had that taxi pre-booked,” Burt said, ambling in from the living room instead of just shouting across the house again. “Which is also weird, I gotta say. Are you guys smuggling drugs or something now?”

Blaine blushed a deep red as Kurt said, “No, Dad. God. A couple of kids can’t come visit their family without being accused of drug trafficking anymore?”

anonymous asked:

What do you think it is about the story of Harry Potter that makes it so powerful? I've been asked why I love it so much, but I honestly can't express it. I'm not very good at putting things into words...help? I know, it's kind of a tough/random question.

Hehe it is a tough question but do you know what? I love it! In fact I started to well up just thinking how I would reply to this message. It doesn’t help that I’m now listening to a HP soundtrack playlist on youtube either. I don’t help myself really.

I think that for most of us here on Tumblr, the significance of it is that we grew up with it. It doesn’t matter if you were 13 when the first film came out, or 5, a whole generation grew up with it. My mum works with a 22/23 year old who is apparently just as obsessed with it as I am, quite a lot of my friends love it, and I am moulding my 3 year old sister to love it - in fact she calls me Dumbledore, and calls herself “Romione”, which is how she says Hermione (for some reason, though she can say it properly), which I love. But, having said that, my dad loves it too, he read the books when I was a child and took me to see the films, and took me to the HP Studios, and actually wants to go back. I feel like I was lucky, because I got into it at a very young age. My parents took me to the cinema to see PS in 2001 when it came out, simply because they had seen on the news the success, and the recommendations that it was a great film for kids. That was that, I then became obsessed at 5 years old. Oops. It’s my parents fault, I swear!

I think that the series is a rare thing. The outline of the plot may not be that original - “The Chosen One” versus “He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named”. But Jo is a mastermind. She embellishes it so that it is something that has never been done before: a 7 book series, that are so closely interwoven that there is foreshadowing for the ending in the first book! And amazingly it never gets old! I read the first book 12/13 years ago now (I was 5 or 6 I can’t remember exactly how old I was), and read the rest of the books when they came out. I’ve probably read each book half a dozen times, more likely a dozen times each. But I never tire of them. Whenever my parents see me settle down to read one of the books again, they’re amazed that I can still read it, even though I probably know each sentence by now, and even though the plot to each book is engrained in my brain, so much so that I think I know the Harry Potter Universe better than I know myself. I remember when I was like 8 or 9 years old, they told me with conviction that I would grow out of it. Now, a decade later, I actually love it even more, which I’m baffled is possible. In another decade, I’ll love it even more. Each time I re-read one of the books, I notice even more about it, more foreshadowing, or moments or sentences that I’ve overlooked and forgotten in the past. It’s these small details that make the series so special. Jo is nothing short of a genius. I’m not joking when I say that I think she should be made queen. Shove over Windsors, the Rowlings are taking the throne mate. 

First of all, let’s look at the characters. They’re painfully real and relatable. They’re all grey characters, no-one is just good or just bad, the line between them is blurred in real life, and they’re blurred realistically in the series. They’re just such realistic people! I’m not going to go into a great deal of detail with the characters because I was planning on going to sleep at some point tonight.

Let’s look at Harry, who could so easily have been written as “The Chosen One”, perfect boy, poor unfortunate soul who handles his burdens with an air of grace, and just manages to defeat the evil one every time because he is so goddamn brilliant, like most of the protagonists are in YA. No. Our Harry is a goddamn idiot. He is the biggest idiot ever! He is a sarcastic little twat who, if he wasn’t the chosen one, would be an average student who just happened to be good at sports. He is overly loyal and forgiving, and wouldn’t be able to do anything that he did do without his friends. 

Now, Hermione. In the films she is little miss perfect, but in the books she is far from it. She’s not just the smart girl, who in quite a lot of YA novel would fall in love with the protagonist. She’s ruthless: she punched Malfoy, cursed Marietta, set fire to Snape, and set a flock of birds to attack Ron.

Ron grew up in a very poor household, overshadowed by his brothers, then came to Hogwarts, where he was overshadowed by his best friend. He earned the right to be pissed off with him. But he’s loyal, and intelligent too, which most people seem to forget. No he didn’t get great grades, nor did Harry. But did you see that chess game he played in his first year????!!!?!?!?!

Moving on from the trio, what makes the series even more rare is the development of the secondary and tertiary characters. Think of the silver trio, Draco, Dumbledore, Lupin, Dobby, Cho, Lily, the Weasleys, even Crookshanks! They are all so developed that it’s amazing. How did Jo even do it? What’s more, they’re all realistic too. I don’t think there’s anyone in the series who wouldn’t exist in real life. I don’t know any other novel or series ever to have so many characters that are so well developed. Every character is so interesting, from Harry, to Luna, to Rita. My mind bogles at the thought! This makes the series special, because everyone has that one character that we relate too. I can’t even articulate how Jo has written so many characters that we love and adore and hate and relate to and who are all so important in their own right and so amazing. We also see them grow up, from children to adults. But I think one important lesson is that no matter who you are, you’re loved: Harry didn’t think we was loved, and then he became on of the Weasleys. Also, the fact that even the wisest of characters, Dumbledore,makes mistakes, and so teaching us that it’s okay to make mistakes, and not to know what you’re doing. And, that despite how you’ve been brought up, no one is more important than another because of their birth. 

I think that brings me on to this: the series has so many important life lessons in it, and that, for a series about a wizard, it’s surprising the parallels it draws to our world. For a supposed child’s series, it touches on some very real and important topics, but masks them. Like racial prejudice for example: the prejudice of purebloods against muggle-borns. The Death Eaters are basically the KKK. There is other prejudice, against werewolves for example (an example of HIV), house-elves, and giants. But in the end, Jo teaches us to throw our prejudices out the window: everyone is equal. That’s not just it. There are very heavy topics in the series. Abuse (the Dursleys), PTSD (Harry), grief after death (Harry and Cho), moving on from loss (Luna, Harry, Cho, Neville), the inevitably of death (Tom), the importance of having love (Harry vs Tom), depression (Dementors). This educates kids without it being obvious what it’s about, learning the lessons about acceptance without the prejudice. I don’t think this is a kid’s series, but the fact that so many children read it is fantastic.

Finally, the world that Jo created is so magic. It’s so like our own, but just different enough for us to be entranced by it. She created this world and it’s people so cleverly. You never want to leave. Once you’ve read one of the books, or seen one of the films, you have to come back. The depth that Jo went in to creating this universe is outstanding, and I’m amazed that I’m still learning stuff about it, nearly 14 years later.

That’s what makes the series so powerful. It’s so hard not to fall in love with it. It was so cleverly created, and, in my opinion, stands head and shoulders above most literature. I think that people are going to be reading the books and watching the films for centuries. I’m already looking forward to reading the books to my kids - hell, I’m excited to reading it to my little sister (if she would let me, her attention span isn’t quite long enough yet). 

In short, the series is just magical.

The Subconscious, or It's Not An Underground Network, It's an Underground Network in The Empty Hearse: Part 2

Part 1

Part 3

My usual disclaimer: I’m not an expert in Freudian psychology. I stopped paying much attention to Freud when I read about “penis envy.” But Freud and his theories of the subconscious are everywhere in Western culture and have pretty much shaped Western thought in the 20th century. I’ll probably get these terms wrong. I’m approaching it from a “lay” person’s understanding of the subconscious and a visual storyteller’s perspective of creating narrative. This method is just one way of looking at storytelling. It’s really not meant to be definitive. YMMV.

People might think I’m nuts for analyzing this episode to this depth but it’s a type of thing I enjoy. It also gives me ideas for how I tell my own visual stories in my actual job as a photographer, because it’s just done so very well. I’m not so much trying to get to the “real” truth (spoiler: I don’t think there is such a thing as one definitive “real” interpretation of a piece of narrative or artwork) as I am about unpacking the way this story is put together for my own benefit (and whoever else is interested enough to read this). Do not worry about my sanity. I am having a great time. It’s all squee here.

I need to get know the place again. Breathe it in. Feel every quiver of its beating heart. - London as The Conscious and The Underground as The Subconscious
