College!AU Seokjin
  • major: broadcasting 
  • minor: hospitality and tourism management 
  • sports: tennis team 
  • clubs: cooking club, on campus news channel + interns at the actual city news channel 
  • it is important to point out that the only person out of his crew of friends aka bts he is the only one with a car and all the members keep fighting over who seokjin is going to let borrow his car for the weekend and most of the time seokjin is like this is a Headache and gives it to hoseok because hoseok is nice and also jungkook can’t double park and namjoon drives at a snails pace
  • but yeah he has a car mostly because he has to drive to get to the city news headquarters that is like way too far from campus and the cars like a hand-me-down from his family so it’s kinda old but seokjin always keeps it clean and freshly painted and he has those cute like air fresheners that hang from his mirror because god only knows what the members do in this poor car when he’s not around
  • but seokjin’s car is not the point of this au moving on he’s a broadcasting major and hopes to have a job in news when he’s older, preferably as an anchor at a news station even (a famous one would be even better) and everyone thinks that honestly he’s a perfect fit for the job
  • a) because he’s handsome b) because he has a good voice and c) did i mention he’s drop dead handsome? like imagine waking up, turning on the tv, and there’s seokjin telling you it’s gonna be a sunny day and that the government royally screwed up again. wow. a Dream
  • seokjin’s original major was hospitality and tourism management because he had wanted to go to culinary school but thought that that was way too much of a stretch so maybe working in at a hotel or as an event planner was kind of similar to cooking for many people in a restaurant, but after a while he made it his minor because someone had suggested he should be on TV with those good looks
  • and being an actor was just as a far off as being a chef so he was like what else is on TV? the news
  • and seokjin’s like pretty well informed too, like he enjoys reading the paper and listening to political podcasts (which jungkook and taehyung always whine about in the car if seokjin is driving them all into the city they’re always like “hyUNG this is so sad and the words are so boring let’s listen to something more funnnn” and seokjin’s like “how does radio disney sound for you kids?” and they’re like h Y U N g and seokjin’s like no we’re not listening to any of those songs w swear words in them and yoongi in the passenger seat beside jin is like oh my god seokjin we are all in C O L L E G E 
  • but yeah he like does the weather reporting and reads of the news that goes on on campus but he’s also fascinated by journalism and when he’s at his internship he’s always mingling w the interns that aren’t doing broadcasting but the ones who’re working under the journalists and sources because they’re so cool and know so much and ok some of the stuff they tell him he’s not supposed to know but seokjin is so charming that he could get mr. krabs to tell him the secret to the krabby patty. 
  • not interested in sports broadcasting even though every season the baseball coach sends over half the team to get jin to show up and broadcast live through the university’s athletic channel stream and seokjin’s like no thanks but the coach is like bribe him. tell him he’s pretty. and the team tries but seokjin is like listen i know your coach just wants more people to watch the show for my great face and not the game so im not gonna do it. and the teams like sigh ok but also seokjin is right that’s exactly why the coach wants him to broadcast
  • seokjin is also on the tennis team and everytime he practices the court is full of girls and boys pressed against the fence around the net trying to take photos of him and he’s like flattered but also like !!! be careful you guys i have a very strong swing i dont want any balls going over the fence and hurting anyone!!! 
  • when they play doubles seokjin’s teammate sandeul is always whining about how another fan of seokjins had asked him to get her seokjin’s signature and he’s like seokjin pls im so tired of this someone stole my racket last week thinking it was yours
  • and seokjin’s like im sorry buddy but im cursed with this Beautiful Face what can i do…..
  • sandeuls like let me whack you with this ra- and jin’s like i will end you 
  • and so one day you’re actually featured on the campus new channel because you won an award in your major and it’s nothing hUGE but it’s something so you get an invite to be on the morning segment and you kinda want to turn it down because cameras,,,the whole student body watching you,,,ahhhhhhh no
  • but like your friends are like what nO do  i  t and also they’re like “you’ll get to do it with seokjin, and you know everyone loves seokjin!!! you can’t let this chance go!!!!”
  • and you’re like well like you know who seokjin is but you’re like even if i do this interview it’s not like he’s going to magically fall in love w me or something (Lmao little do you know)
  • so you’re just like fine whatever and you try to wear something nice and you show up and it’s obvious you’re worried because you keep fiddling with your phone
  • until you hear a sweet voice go; “don’t worry. it’s not like this is cable television or anything.”
  • and you look up to see THE seokjin standing beside you with a kind smile on his face and his signature pink tie on and ok wow he’s super handsome up close are his eyes sparkling?? ok wait not the point
  • and you’re like ahHA it’s easy for you you do this every morning and seokjin’s like chuckling like you’re not wrong but seriously don’t sweat it
  • and he like ruffles your hair and goes to sit in front of the camera and you’re like 
  • well one your heart is beating because ok,,,,ruffling your hair?? what is this some romance comic but two; holy shit you’re on in two minutes
  • and the minute seokjin is introducing your name and the award you’ve won you can feel your palms getting sweaty but it’s like somehow you catch a gentle, encouraging smile that seokjin passes on to you and suddenly your throats just a little less dry and you manage to stutter out a little speech about the award and not make a fool out of yourself
  • and all in all the segment with you is only 7 minutes long, but you can’t leave the set till seokjin is done talking and right at the end you notice that seokjin’s sweating a lot and that he keeps trying to move his fingers casually toward the cue cards that are beside you but are too far away and if he just grabs them everyone will see it in the shot
  • and you’re like wait shit did he forget the headlines??? and you can hear seokjin’s lines wavering a bit and he clears his throat right after the weather report and you’re like oh no and seokijn is like “now for more headlines, the real information about campus life and activities, the headlines…”
  • like it’s obvious he’s stalling and the crew is panicking and so you casually put your award down on the table and slip the cue cards into your lap so the camera cant see and without looking at him, you drop the cards in jin’s lap under the table you two are sitting on and like
  • he just needs one glance down to remember the first couple of words and BAM everything comes back to him and he’s making the announcements smoothly and the crew is like thANK GOD the main cameraman even needs someone to like dab the sweat off his forehead for him because that was close
  • can you believe this drama at the on campus news channel like wOW 
  • but yes everything ends and the seokjin turns to you and you’re like !!! good job and he’s like,,,,,,,,,,,,,listen i owe you my life
  • and you’re like ok chill not your life it’s just a show but seokjin is like no no ive never messed up on a broadcast and idk whats happening with me today maybe i was too distracted but really you saved me
  • and you blush like oh,,,,it was nothing quick thinking you know!! and you like get your award and jump off your chair like well!!!! this was interesting and nerve wracking!!! thanks for having me
  • and you do a bow to all the film + broadcasting students and you’re like oh no class is in fifteen
  • and you run off before seokjin can flag you down and give you his number because hey you wanna know why he was distracted?
  • because you were so damn cute
  • ALSO because you see him the next day in the pharmacy off campus buying flu medicine and he’s got tissues sticking out of his pockets and like a neck warmer on and you’re like
  • …….. he forgot his lines because he was also getting sick……..
  • and you walk over like hey!! and he’s like o H and hides behind the cap he’s wearing because he’s like  don’t look at me im usually a 10 but today im an 8 because i look horrible
  • and you’re like no no you’re still like above a 10 don’t worry
  • and seokjin peeks from under his baseball cap like ,,,,,,why thank you *commence a long string of sneezes*
  • and you’re like hey, you should try this tea my mom gave me when she was helping me pack for this semester. whenever i get a cold it always works and im good the next day! and seokjin is like a one day cure for the cold? ill take it i have the morning news to do tomorrow
  • and you’re like cool!!! ill bring some over to your dorm and seokjin’s like ok!! thank you ill pay you back with some good food and you’re like no no you’re sick and he’s like yEs im sick im not dying i can still make some kimchi fried rice.
  • and so you show up to the dorm with your tea bags and seokjin still has his messy hair under his baseball cap and a big sweater on and some sweats and it’s kind of a shock because you’re used to him being all spiffy and well kept when you see him on the campus channel
  • but now he looks like you know,,,,,,like every other sick and stressed kid in college
  • and like seokjin has got his ricecooker on and he’s got all these containers of sidedishes that he’s made and you’re like making him tea
  • and like you barely know each other but somehow it’s very serene and domestic
  • and when you’re done and seokjin drinks like 3 cups of your tea and you eat like 3 portions of his rice 
  • seokjin is seeing you to the door and he’s like
  • *cough* “is it ok *sneeze* *blow nose* if one day when im *cough again* better i can take you out for *blow nose and cough at same time, apologize* dinner as a thank you?”
  • and you’re like a thank you for??? and he’s like for that time you saved me and you’re putting your hands up like wAH no no it’s fine
  • but seokjin is like no i must i must and even though he sounds like he’s dying and he’s sneezing all over the place, he’s stubborn till the end until you agree
  • as you’re walking to your own dorm though you’re like
  • wait………….
  • did i just score a date with the handsomest guy on campus????
  • and yes. yes you did
  • when you text your friends about it they nearly sprints their way down to your dorm like W H  A T WE NEED TO GO SHOPPING FOR A DATe outFiT and you’re like i can just wear that- and they’re like nO this is SEOKJIn the FACE OF Our schoOL you are going to have to look GUD
  • and you’re like oh my
  • so the date turns out to be at this pretty fancy place in the city that you’ve heard about and you’re like is seokjin,,,,,the son of some guy with a company or something how can he afford this place
  • and like you see him coming down the street and he’s in like a suit and looking like a+ like yall about to attend a wedding or something and hes got his hair back and you’re like oh,,,,,,,this is so,,,,,,Fancy
  • and you’re like hi!! and seokjin’s like “you look amazing.” and you’re like “you look even better!!” and seokjin laughs like “for the first time, i have to disagree - you’re stunning.”
  • and he offers you his elbow like we’re back in the fifties or something and you go inside and like ,,,, you get this nice table and you’re the youngest ones there and you’re like um seokjin how did you,,,,,,,like,,,,,,,,,get us seats here? Are you rich? Are you the prime ministers secret son you can tell me i will keep it a secre-
  • but seokjin is like no no i know the chef of this place, he gave a talk on campus for one of the classes in my minor. we kind of clicked you know and he’s always calling me over to have a taste of his food. his names kidoh.
  • and you’re like ……kidoh? and seokjin’s like “interesting, right? he’s seoul’s youngest chef.”
  • and you’re like looking at seokjin like this guys life is just…..full of surprises isn’t it
  • but over dinner like you and seokjin end up bonding so much over the things you guys like and care about and seokjin always seems to unapproachable because he looks like he’s so far above others, but in reality he’s just a dude who loves to cook and make corny jokes and in a lot of ways he’s really just……normal
  • he does admit that he’s really careful about his appearance but he’s like how can i not be when that’s all people see me for
  • and you get a hint of the sadness behind that statement, the fact that people forget that there’s a person with feelings under his breathtaking smiles
  • and you don’t expect it but seokjin’s like let me drive you home and you’re like you have a car??
  • and seokjin’s like yes i just didn’t want to park it out here because it’s pretty old and i thought it might be embarrassing but once you see it you’re like seokjin this car looks new and he’s like that’s because i break my back cleaning it all the time
  • and while he’s driving you he tells you the stories of what jimin, yoongi, and taehyung have all done to his precious car and you’re laughing like nO way and seokjin’s like nO Im telling the truth it’s like im friends with a bunch of five year olds sometimes
  • and you’re like seokjin i love the way you nag about them it’s hilarious and he’s like heY i do not NAG. i woRRY and you’re like hehe it’s cute!!!!
  • and it is cute he’s concerned for the people he loves. this softie
  • and like when you get dropped off youre like hey seokjin wanna hear a secret
  • and he’s like ooo ok and you’re like leaning over like “i liked your kimchi fried rice more than the food at the restaurant. don’t tell your friend!” and when you lean back giggling into your hand seokjin just
  • he just gently takes your wrist and pulls you back to him and kisses the side of your lips with a whispered thank you
  • and like you sit in the car looking at each other in the like moonlight and it’s cute you wanna kiss him again but like it’s enough for the first date and seokjin watches as you go inside just to make sure you’re safe
  • and ofc he sends you a good night text because like seokjin is the best man on this planet he is so soft and caring and wow ok im getting off topic
  • but yes after that you and seokjin meetup more often on campus, sometimes in the area where the news channel is filmed because seokjin is always studying lines during lunch and you’re honestly just fine watching him all concentrated as you munch on his homemade snacks
  • you also listen to him do a mock announcement and then clap and he’s like the aplause is not necessary and you’re like why not you’re so cool seokjin
  • and he’s like trying to hide the smile but he can’t
  • sometimes you’ll go over to his dorm and you two will look up recipes on youtube or online to try and make
  • most of the time you both end up with the ingredients all over your faces and fingertips and when you reach up to put some avocado paste on seokjin’s cheek he chases you until he gets you in a backhug and kisses at the spot behind your ear that he knows is sensative
  • it’s cute you guys make dinner for his friends and jungkook is like “hyung. i think you two should just get married and adopt us all as your kids so you can both cook for us everynight.” and seokjin is like jungKOOK and you’re like skhfldngseifw and yoongi is like “no no the little twerp is right.” and jungkook’s like im like 5 inches taller than you yoongi i have been for like two years and yoongi with his mouth full of noodles “you’re still a twerp jungkook.”
  • you go to see seokjin play tennis and like it’s not a competition so you come out onto the court and seokjin helps you learn how to hold the racquet and whatnot
  • when he puts his hands around your waist to keep you steady you can literally hear sandeul from the other court whistling like GET IT SEOKJIN and seokjin is “i repeat. everyone im friends with is five.”
  • you and seokjin doing little face masks together because he gets you into them and you’re like “did i put this on right?” the first time and he’s like “no it’s upside down come here.”
  • when you had to go away for couple of days for a trip with your class seokjin sent you videos of him eating for a straight thirty minutes not saying anything until the end. he affectionately called these videos “eat jin”
  • you responded by doing the same and naming them “eating without jin” and seokjin was just like yEAH but you wish i was there
  • seokjin is tall and he owns a lot of like long sleeved shirts that you love wearing because they’re big in the shoulders and seokjin is like “…..hey listen you have your own clothes…..did you get a stain on this sweater? come here i will kill yo-” and you’re like “SORRY but they’re nice and they smell clean like you” and seokjin is like “if you weren’t so cute- i sWEAR.”

anonymous asked:

with the inauguration coming up i was wondering if you knew more about pete wentz and politics?? you seem to be the go-to person

well for starters pete’s been political since the moment he was conceived and we can always thank joe biden for that, both of his parents being legislative assistants during his first term (x)(x) + colin powell, ex-secretary of state, is his grandfather’s cousin. pete majored in political-science for three years while in college before getting serious with fall out boy and didn’t believe he had been politically active until 2008 while campaigning for obama despite his frequent prior involvement via music and publicity. pete and andy alongside fall out boy were also both apart of the band racetraitor in chicago’s underground music scene which “discussed issues like white privilege, class privilege, the war on drugs and biases in the us criminal justice system, inequities in economic globalization, and us foreign policies in latin american and the middle east. the name racetraitor was in reference to using one’s social and economic privilege to create a more egalitarian world.” (wikipedia being the best information accumulation, same for anything on arma angelus with tim mcllrath from rise against and eventually joe)

but many of fall out boy’s messages have generally always been mingled with political agendas and subtle cues all mixed up with relationship woes and the realism of mental illness, many times autobiographically.  obviously these things have always been the punk staple point and aren’t exclusive to fall out boy but particularly between 2001-2009 (and especially with folie a deux) there was emphasis. there’s been some analysis on how 9/11 was the catalyst for the foundation of early 2000′s emo as well.

folie a deux in particular though was written as a giant middle finger to the bush administration and this can be seen scattered throughout the album through a specific lense (x). as mentioned in the link i would suggest reading into the wars in afghanistan and iraq and the history that trails back to george w. bush’s father and their politics in the middle east. the album’s references are meant to be subtle and left to interpretation by the listener but many are very blatant like in 20 dollar nosebleed.

let’s not forget you’re crashing but you’re no wave from infinity on high which is about the trial of fred hampton jr. who was falsely accused of arson in a rigged trial in the aftermath of rodney king’s murder in 1993. fred hampton jr. was the son of fred hampton who was the leader of the illinois black panthers and was assassinated in his sleep by chicago pd. pete worked with a volunteer legal organization in chicago and worked with the case and was inspired to write a song that further emphasized him as a black nationalist.

often times pete’s vocal disdains would show themselves in humor or subtle references - particularly in these two videos: this interview where he mentions that people care and know more about the media and celebrities than they do about the war in iraq – and goes on to examine a doll of george w. bush saying, “i hate this guy. this is the guy who runs hell when the devil’s up here hanging out.” the second stemming from kanye west during the hurricane katrina relief concert where he says on live television “george bush doesn’t care about black people.” which pete again references in this video as a mock interviewer (3:50-4:05).

as mentioned before, pete was very politically active during obama’s presidential campaign in 2008. this involved encouraging voters to read about their candidates and developing a relationship with them and also to do something as simple as canvassing door-to-door as his father was doing in florida and columbus, ohio. he threw a campaign fundraiser in chicago, saying i have never really gotten involved in politics before. even in college, everyone just wanted to go out and get drunk and make bad decisions, sort of like we did when we elected george w. bush eight years ago. and to me, the goal of the event is to expose obama to people who may have misconceptions about him. for example, someone on our web site said, ‘i heard if he’s elected, he’s going to bomb the middle east,’ and i was like, ‘uh, no… that’s what our current president did.

Always you

—————————————

It was undeniably a beautiful, late-summer day in the valley, and your view from one of Erebor’s many terraces was unrivaled, but the loveliness of the sultry blue sky, sparkling river, and splashes of color from wildflowers among the waving grasses was lost on you as you stood leaning on the carved stone balustrade and absentmindedly rubbing your knee where it had collided with a table leg in your hasty retreat from the festivities in the Great Hall.

There had been many jubilant feasts in the month since you’d arrived at last in your ancestral home, but with each one, you had felt your celebratory mood slipping away.

For two long years, your thoughts had been full of Thorin. During the busy routine of the daylight hours, you missed his comradeship, his conversation, his steady presence, and at night, you lay in your bed with your heart seeming to burn within your chest, consumed with fear for his safety, anxiety that he might forget his friends left behind…and with the love that you had recognized for what it was only after he had kissed your cheek and walked away with his companions in the dim light of dawn.

Svt's ideal types? But with a little more detail and your own opinions? Because let's be real Josh, 'kind girl' isn't really narrowing down much

SEVENTEENS IDEAL TYPES


Seungcheol: Someone who can cook, someone who is very mom like and will take care of him as well as his members too. He/She has to be willing and love trying new things, being adventurous. Someone who has a very funny personality and can keep the room very bubbly and fun. They have to be very affectionate because we all know that Seungcheol is very loving. Also Very soft hearted but is head strong and doesn’t take shit.

Jeonghan: He would want someone who loves and supports him with his music. Some who is very puppy like. By puppy like i mean someone who has a very fresh and young look.  Someone who isn’t very loud and outgoing. Quiet and gentle but when they are alone is very fun to be around. He’d want someone who doesn’t necessarily have the same likings as him because he’d want to teach her/him about it. 

Joshua: As much as he would love a sweet and quiet s/o i think hed want the complete opposite as him. Hed want someone who is loud and outgoing to bring him out of his little quietness. He has that inner extrovert and hed want someone who is able to bring it out of him.

Someone who he can always go to to make him happy. 

Mingyu: Someone who is tall! He’d love if his girl/boy was tall because legs! Also someone who is very easy going and go with the flow. Always ready to just get up and go do something. They have to be very caring and kind i dont think that mingyu would get along with someone who is rude. He would like someone who is quiet but behind closed door is loud and the opposite of them around people. He would want someone who he can take care of but also someone who doesn’t mind to take care of him as well. 

Minghao: Would want someone very similar to him. Quiet and kind hearted, He would love if his s/o was cute. Had natural age and was just really adorable without even trying much like himself. He also would like if his s/o was loud at some points. Had a very funny and clumsy personality but is also very mature and intelligent. He won’t fit to well with someone who is very loud and obnoxious but he would want his girl/boy to be able to bring him out of his shell to have a good time much like Jun does. A plus would be someone willing to learn more about his culture.

Seungkwan: Someone who is easy going and isn’t like a girl/boyfriend but someone who is like a best friend to him. Someone is extroverted like himself, loves to joke around, is sassy just someone who he can really relate to. But defiantly not someone who will bump heads with him he doesn’t seem like the type to like much confrontation. Also Someone who is just as witty as him. 

Vernon:  Someone who is unique and stands out. He would really fall for some who is like him. A meme, always making and trying to have fun. He would also want his s/o to be very encouraging and loving. He would love if they didn’t mind being a complete nerd over music or drake or whoever he was talking about but would if you could talk and love the same things he does. 

Dino: Someone who really appreciated and supported his music and dancing. He wouldn’t have a preference over an introvert or an extrovert he would get along well with both. He would love someone who was very cute and had lots and lots of aegyo. If you loved dancing or MJ he would automatically be interested in you and want to know you better.  He would find it really great if you were affectionate because i think deep down he is a hopeless romantic.

Headcanon: Mirkwood Parties
  • Thranduil sitting on his throne being all kingly and dignified, and overseeing the party while drinking his favourite wine
  • Thranduil refusing to dance at his parties because he’s the king and kings do not dance like a common elf - aka drunken dancing, because they are all sloshed from the Dorwinion wine.
  • Legolas, always mingling with the crowd, is always found dancing in the middle of the dance floor
  • Thranduil swears he does not stare at the way his son moves. He does not.
  • Legolas making it his mission to drag Thranduil onto the dance floor every single party
  • Legolas achieving it by 1) getting all close and intimate with other elves and making Thranduil jealous so Thranduil cannot stop himself from stomping up to Legolas and pulling him into his arms and staying with him through the rest of the party because Legolas is his and he has to make sure no one touches what is his. Thranduil is then stuck on the dance floor because Legolas likes/wants to dance and eventually Thranduil starts swaying to the beat and oops, is that his hand down his son’s pants now? 2) threatening Thranduil that he won’t sleep with him for a year or something if Thranduil doesn’t get on that dance floor now 3) being so friggin’ awesome at dancing and intentionally/unintentionally seducing Thranduil, who is all the way on his throne, and Thranduil just has to get to Legolas right now and then Thranduil finds himself dancing with Legolas for hours after and wondering when he can pull Legolas into their chambers and ravish him senseless
  • Thranduil always organising these parties because he really loves to watch Legolas dance and the private ‘after party’ is always a plus

Sprawled out across on her California king bed, flat on her stomach with one hand propped under her chin and the other scrolling through her phone, Allison let out a small breath of air. It was extremely quiet in the place, despite having multiple hired services doing what her parents had ordered around the house while they done work all day long. Allison finally got up from her bed and left her room, heading downstairs to take a look around. This was the parent her parents disapproved of, her always mingling with the staff. Personally she thought her parents were snobbish – or maybe she was adopted, who the hell knew. She soon found herself standing in the archway of the kitchen, most of the chefs were prepping many, many meals for one of the parties her mother and father were hosting, but they had those all the time. Her eyes landed on one particular person, a male that looked to be in her age range. So without much though, she slid herself into one of the many fancy seats at the island in the middle of the room. “Working hard, are you?” Allison questioned, placing her now folded hands under her chin as she had made herself known.

Fanfiction - My Brother’s Lass (Part Three)

My heart is filled with happiness and wonder for the amazing reaction to this story. I’ll do my best not to ruin it and to do it justice!

If you don’t have a clue, Part One and Two are glad to be read. As always, I await you on the other side! Much love <3

My Brother’s Lass (Part Three) – Northern lights

The next day, dawn found me where troubled night had left me – lying in bed, feeling scattered, my head buzzing from the lack of sleep and the stream of continuous thoughts that tormented me.

But I had come to a conclusion during those hours of solitude and quietness. I must rip Claire of my mind, erase every trace of her from my blood where she had entered like unwelcome poison – or cure. She did not belong to me; and could never be mine. What I felt for her was powerful enough to scare me, to leave me gasping for air at the thought of her in my brother’s arms one day. I knew she was the woman who would come to change everything – and yet I had arrived too late for her, and found her on a collision course with the life I used to ken.

I had to find a way to let go; to love her as my dear sister, no more to me than my brother’s respected bride.

I had to find a way to survive the pain of what could never be.

****

In the days that followed I plunged in a whirl of labour at Lallybroch – I usually was up and out of the house even before the sun had completely risen and frequently found reasons to come back only in time for supper. I used every pretext to get as far away as possible from the house, repairing the fence on the boundaries of our lands, making my way to the village to trade a horse or hunting a deer near the farthest stream. I sought the dreamless sleep that comes with deep-bone tiredness; and above all else I meant to escape those eyes that promised me a world in which I could only be an outlander.

That day Ian, my companion since we were wee bairns without front teeth, requested my help to mend the roof from the barn, damaged after a raging summer storm.  

Ith mo chac!” I cursed at one point, kicking some nails and chopped boards, frustration building up inside me after another failed attempt of sealing the leaking hole.

“Jamie.” Ian moved to stand closer to me, folding his arms and furrowing his brow. “Ye’ve been skittish and temperamental like a beast in heat since ye returned. What’s this about?”

“Nothing.” I said, bending over so that he couldn’t see my face. I’ve never been very good at lying – at least not to Ian. “This damned building!”

“Aye.” He nodded, serious. “I’m sure what has been bothering ye is the sudden realization of the flawed construction of Lallybroch.”

I laughed, suddenly aware of the ridicule of the situation. I licked my lips, trying to find the right words.

“It’s complicated, Ian.”

“It must be, I daresay. Ye’ve been sulking like a wee lass who lost her favourite ribbon.” He shook his head. “Do ye no trust me then?”

“I do.” I sat down on a stool and sighed. “But ye must promise me not to share this with a single soul. Specially my dear sister!” I waited until he nodded in agreement. “It’s Claire.”

“What about her?” Ian asked slowly, sitting beside me.

“I have…feelings for her.” I offered him a meaningful look.

“I see.” Ian whispered. “I reckon they are not the amiable and “glad-to-have-ye-in-the-family” type of feelings?”

“Nay, they’re not.” I said with regret. “They are more the “I want-to-see-whats-under-yer-shift” kind.”

“So, ye wish to bed the lass.” Ian said thoughtfully. “Is this only yer balls’ wish or…do ye really love her?”

“I dinna ken.” I said slowly. “But it isna like with Annalise.”

“Weel,” Ian said in a practical tone. “Ye best tell yer brother the truth then, a charaid. And better tell him fast before he kens it for himself – for yer heart is showing. Something is amiss and ye hide it very poorly, Jamie lad. If he wasna entirely bewitched himself, he would have noticed it already, as I did.” He gave me a look charged with concern. “Willie is a forgiving man, but I dinna think that wishing to bed the woman he wants for himself falls in that category of good grace. If ye tell him maybe something can be done about it.”

“Like what?” I offered him a wry look. “Do you suggest to share the lass between us like some fertile mare? Ye said it, Ian - He is as enthralled as I am.” I got up and turned my back on him. “I must forget the Englishwoman and that is all there’s to it.”

“Och aye, and how is that working for ye so far?” He asked, amused.

“Just about as good as this roof over our heads.” I grunted. “But I shall endeavour to make it more suitable, nonetheless.”

“Do as ye wish and I shall be by your side.” Ian squeezed my shoulder in support. “But I must warn ye a charaid – the road of lies leads only to three destinations: the hangman’s noose, the grave or a very unhappy existence. Being the honourable man that ye are, I can only expect ye’ll end with the last one.”

****

I only came outside the house because I was feeling suffocated, the walls around me gripping my chest and wame like tentacles of a mythical creature. I couldn’t breathe inside my room; couldna fathom another night in which sleep deserted me. I seldom slept for more than a couple of hours – and would always wake up with a terrible cockstand, a physical pain that couldn’t be ignored, that forced me to abuse myself thinking of her. Afterwards I’d feel dirty and guilty, a sinner without repent – but the pleasure and total abandon she could master within me was always mingled there.

I saw her at once, standing by the fence, leaning into it. I thought of retreating to the house; but it was too late – she had already seen me. I walked there, my heart thundering, trying to look casual.

“The Northern lights.” Claire pointed, excited, when I reached her.

“Ah.” I looked to the sky. It wasn’t the first time I saw it, the Aurora borealis. It wasn’t by far a frequent event, but deep in the Highlands the evanescent lights were a known spectacle. That night it was beautiful – a greenish glow, sometimes with a tinge of blue and a faint red in the flowing edges. “The souls of fallen warriors are out tonight then.”

“Is that what you think that is?” She asked me with a vague look of mischief in her eyes.

I shrugged.

“An explanation as good as any, I guess.” I glanced at her profile, lightened by the glowing lights, dipped in silver and blue like a siren in the underwater world. “What do ye think?”

“I think…” She started, then she shook her head and bit her bottom lip. “You know what? I think you’re right. In this place makes much more sense to me to think that souls would carry on and dance forever in the skies. When you die – many many years from now - do you wish to spend eternity wandering the night skies, then?” Claire asked me with a smile.

I wish only to be where you are. Any place I could watch over you is my rightful place. But all I managed to say was “Perhaps.”

“I’m glad you appeared actually.” Claire said with a soft voice. “We haven’t really had a chance to talk much since you arrived. How is your hand?”

“Bonny.” I showed her my palm, the skin still sensible but almost healed. “I have ye to thank for it.”

She made a gesture with her hand, dismissing her role in the cure of his ailments.

“You have been quite busy.” Claire added. “Willie is worried that you’re still hurting over this French girl. I’m sorry, I forgot her name – but it was something pompous and…very…french.”

I hummed, clearing my throat, trying to keep my voice steady.

“My brother has nothing to be concerned about. The lass couldn’t be more distant from my memory.”

“Oh.” She seemed surprised, but somewhat pleased to hear it. “Good. Young hearts and all that?”

I snorted.

“I’m nay so sure my heart had much to do with the matter.” I looked away, trying not to be distracted by the shape of her lips and the small frown on her brow. “I shall reassure my brother that all is well.”

We stood in silence for a moment, immersed in our private thoughts.

“Where did you come from, Claire?” I asked suddenly, realizing that I knew very little about her still. An orphan, to be sure; a healer, searching for a place where her talents could be used – but not much more.

“A place far far away.” She tilted her head, partially hiding her face from my eyes.

“I dinna ken there was any place that far – it is England we’re talking, after all. Is it not?” I pressed.

“Yes.” She whispered. “But sometimes it feels like a world away.”

“Do ye long for it?”

“Sometimes.” She brushed the hair from her face, carried by the breeze. “But more often I find myself relishing in the things I’ve earned coming here. On the meaning of it all. I didn’t fit there, not quite – and you can’t really be that homesick when you never had a true home.”

“Is this…home now?” I asked tentatively, moving my hand to encompass Lallybroch. But what I truly wished to ask was “Do you belong here…with Willie?”

“I’m beginning to feel a lot like it.” She whispered. “Everyone has been just so nice and welcoming. Willie is a true friend – he helped me settle here and asked for nothing in return.”

Oh, but he will ask ye something alright. He wants it all, lass. Instead I offered her an ambiguous “Hm.”

I thought about Ian’s question. Was it just her body that I wanted? No. I wished to possess her body, but also to touch her soul; to have her bared not only of clothes but of every mask one usually wears to go about life. I longed to talk to her and to rouse and love her beautiful body in turns for the rest of our days.

The wind was getting stronger and I noticed she was chilled. Without a word, I took off my coat and placed it around her shoulders. I brushed her back in the process and called myself a happy man for that single contact.

“Ah.” She gave me a grateful glance and a sweet smile. “I forgot my shawl inside. It’s getting rather late…Maybe we should call it a night?”

I agreed and we walked together to the house, comparing notes about the welfare of Lallybroch’s inhabitants and the unfortunate marriage of Mary with the brute MacNab.

We finally reached the landing outside our rooms.

“I’m glad we talked.” Claire said, sliding my coat off her shoulders and handing it back to me. “Goodnight, Jamie.”

“Goodnight, Claire.” I whispered back, as she entered her room and closed the door behind her. I placed my hand on her door, the palm open against the hard surface, as if I could will myself to touch her through it.

I had failed. I could never forget Claire; she was as elemental to me as the heart that pulsed inside my chest and as wondrous as the northern lights. She walked my dreams at night and my thoughts during the day. Sometimes I felt myself on the brink of losing my wits; that I would do something as foolish as entering her room at night to stake claim on that body that roused mine without even trying. To tell her I yearned for her; and all else be damned to Hell.

So I had no choice. I had to place her far away from my grasp; where my love for her couldn’t cause destruction amongst my family.

I must send Claire away.

Werewolf!Hoseok Part Two

Before I start this, I just wanted to point out that this is gonna be my 500th post which is super cool just a random milestone but back to the post, it’s time for our hope, our angel, or as one of my friends called him, our smile child, Jung Hoseok aka J-Hope aka hobi aka you know what I need, I need more oh hobi just being happy like I don’t even care what he’s doing he can be eating, dancing, playing with a puppy, chilling out it doesn’t matter, as long as he’s a happy lil bean it’s all good bc happy!Hobi is super important and he deserves to be happy 25/8

  • Part one is here, werewolf!hobi as a father is here
  • For a more in depth explanation, you can go to Jin’s post (right here) but I’ll do a quick summary here
  • Dating a human isn’t against any laws or rules or anything like that, it just isn’t highly suggested
  • Bc some humans aren’t down for dating a werewolf so they break up with them and then the werewolf is utterly crushed and possibly never loves again bc werewolves tend to be a one love for life type of deal
  • It’s v v v hard for them to fall in love with anyone but their first love so for the most part, they stick to people they know won’t leave them bc they’re a werewolf
  • Hobi has always mingled with humans, since he was a lil bby toddler
  • His mother was always volunteering around the town and he was never too far from her
  • She wasn’t all that worried about humans since she’d already found her love in hobi’s father so she was constantly around them
  • Hobi never really saw the big deal about them??
  • Like some people (typically the ones who’d been left broken hearted) talked about humans as if they were evil but hobi thought they were just like him
  • They breathed the same air, they ate the same foods, they spoke the same language like why did some of the older pack mates fear them so much??
  • He’s the third to fall in love
  • He meets you when he’s just a lil goober bc your moms are best friends and are like hey I have a bby you have a bby why not have play dates
  • You two are really close your entire lives
  • He never tells you about the whole werewolf thing, even though he really really wants to bc he’s so not a secret type of person
  • Like hobi can keep secrets, even though his instinct is to be open with people, if there’s a secret someone wants him to keep, he’s keeping it
  • But it’s really hard for him to have someone he’s so close to and not tell them what he really is
  • He’s just an open book so to have to look you in the eyes and know he’s keeping such a huge secret is !!!
  • There are so many times where he goes to tell you and he has to hold himself back
  • “You’re a cute lil human bean aren’t you”
  • “Well actually fun fact for you”
  • The whole romance part of your relationship doesn’t happen until you two are both in college
  • It’s your first day there and you’re a bit nervous about it all so of course hobi comes to the rescue to help calm you down
  • He sneaks you out in the middle of the night and takes you over to the local park so you can talk it out
  • Side note I feel like hobi would be a really good person to talk to ??
  • Like he’s a sensitive lil bean and would just have a good sense of when to cheer you up and when to let you talk
  • His ultimate goal is to make you happy but he understands sometimes you need to let all of that shit off of your chest before he gets to see your smile again
  • And of course, some days, like that night, you just need him to hold you as tight as he can and not let go
  • He does exactly that
  • He would also be an amazing hugger
  • Like when you look at hobi, he just looks warm and cozy and cuddly
  • Tell me he doesn’t look like a great hugger, like you could just hold onto him all tight and he’d do the thing where he buries his face into your hair or your shoulder
  • But also if he’s tall enough, he’d do the thing where he puts his chin on top of your head but even if it isn’t tall enough he’s gonna try to do it bc cutie
  • But he hugs you all night and you can smell his cologne and it’s just really relaxing and nice
  • You two have kinda been hinting that your “platonic” love for each other isn’t actually all that platonic
  • So due to a lot of build up and a lot of testing the waters to see if the other feels the same, you two kinda just have a lil kiss
  • It’s super sweet and cute and it confirms that yes, he does actually love you in the same way you love him
  • Pretty soon, you’re calling him your boyfriend, your love, your babe whatever you’re in the mood for that day
  • His favorite thing to call you is his sunshine bc you make him happy but also in those sweet moments where it’s just you two and he isn’t so !!! he likes to call you his angel
  • He tells you fairly early on
  • He figures that if you two are gonna be together, he shouldn’t have such a huge secret
  • When he tells you, you’re just “oh ik that, I’ve known since we were like two”
  • He’s so ??!?!?!?!?!?! excuse me what was that do you know how many speeches I wrote for this moment
  • “Hobi you’re an actual puppy, you howl when you get too excited, you whimper when you get scared, you have conversations with dogs and you once told me when we were like five”
  • “Oops”
  • Tbh he’s kinda relieved though
  • Bc he’d been so worried about this moment but it’s actually really casual bc you already know bc lil bby hobi failed to preserve the memory of telling you he was a werewolf
  • It does make a lot of sense though bc now that he thinks about it, he has been pretty obvious about it
  • Plus it explains all of the times you tried to get him to eat dog treats and called him your lil pup friend
To other Witches out there...

I’m having to reblog this since I posted the original rather late last night. I don’t know if anyone would be interested in this but I just wanted to pose the question of what would you think about the idea of a Witches Ball.

 Like an actual hosted event for people to get together and mingle?I’ve always thought it would be so cool for other Witches/Wicca/Pagans/Craft Practitioners etc. just for them. 

Like there could be music, maybe a dinner, you dress up, come and talk at a panel sort of thing about what you do and how you decided that was your path, about Cosmic Witches, Technology Witches, Crafting Witches and so forth.

I’d love to hear your ideas and thoughts regarding this.

|| they find him smiling a little more now, a little less guarded, a spontaneous laugh every now and then, and they see it, they hear him, and then there’s her and they hardly know anything except for what they heard of the lady but she’s doing the same and her laugh almost always mingles with the sound of his.

they are.. bright (for lack of a better term) and they remind others of what was and give hope of what could be and they think, they know, that Jon Snow forgets, at least for a while, when he’s with Sansa Stark.

It’s one less thing to question.

500 Girls

On December 25th, you got a text.
It was from him; it said, “Merry Christmas!”
You didn’t fall for it though.
It wasn’t really meant for you.
It was simply a forward.
500 other girls just got it, too.

On New Year’s Eve, as the ball dropped, you got another one.
But he was still just having his fun.
The circumstances were still the same.
Not a single thing had changed.
It wasn’t really meant for you.
500 other girls just got it, too.

Come Valentine’s Day, he had two words to say.
“Be mine.” That’s what you saw pop up on your phone that day.
But you were just another girl in his head.
Just one, out of another 500.
Because you know, he wasn’t really being true.
Sarah Dobbs got it just before you.

Come March 17th,
You turned an envious green.
He wasn’t even Irish,
Yet, you still went in for that kiss.
But those lips were just as deceiving as his eyes.
Stacy Curtis just gave them a test drive.

In June, it was your birthday.
He didn’t remember, because he’s fake.
He was too busy tuning his keys,
So he could practice serenading Taylor Otey.
But don’t worry, it wasn’t just you.
Throughout the year, 500 other girls were forgotten, too.

Weeks later, the two of you were at a show,
And you realized something you didn’t want to know.
Though he held your hand all night,
Someone else was the apple of his eye.
He’d die before he’d ever confess,
But everyone knows his heart is set on Tabitha Barrus.

Then at school, you went on a choir trip.
As you left your front door, he texted you a fib.
It said, “I’m just going to hang with you.”
But when you got there, he was a bit rude.
His attention was probably split 500 ways, wouldn’t you guess?
Nope. He was with just one girl that day. He was with your best friend on a mattress.

Before you knew it, it was Halloween.
A month in advance, he asked you to homecoming.
But as the night unfolded, his secrets were unmasked.
It turned out, Kelli Long was the girl he had originally asked.
You weren’t his first choice; before he decided on you,
He made sure to consider 500 other girls, too.

And one more holiday before it’s been a whole year.
On Thanksgiving, you were in bed when you heard a buzz at your ear.
So, you lifted your head off the bed to look at your phone.
Heaven knows why, for you had already known.
But this time, you didn’t respond; you repelled.
You knew 500 girls just received his junk mail.

Yet as Christmas Eve comes along, you find yourself anticipating that mass text.
In a year’s time, he’s managed to sneak in and mess with your head.
So, then you get on your knees and make your Christmas wish like every year you do.
You pray to God and beg him to somehow make this guy be true to you.
And though he’s always mingling with those 500 other girls.
You pray to God that someday, you could be his world.

anonymous asked:

How do you make socialization less scary? Goal-oriented interaction like presentations and projects I can handle, but when it comes to general mingling I always wind up standing stiffly off to the side, reminding myself to make eye contact and not bite my nails, and my sentences become more jumbled than a box of miscellaneous legos despite being planned well in advance. HOW IS PEOPLE CONTACT SUPPOSED TO WORK?!

Sorry to hear about your anxiety issues, it can be pretty tough. I’ve talked to a few doctors about this actually and together we’ve come up with a ten-step process that I think has gotten me to a much healthier place. I’m no expert, I don’t know if it’ll work for everyone, but I’ve certainly found success with it.

1. Take a deep, deep breath, and really focus on your breathing. You’re not thinking about the crowd, where to put your hands, and the music and your nails and everything else- all you need to think about for the next twenty seconds is a deep breath. That’s one thing. You can handle one thing.

2. Count to ten. That’s easy, you can do that. You have total control over your ability to count to ten. Look at you, crushing ten.

[Remember, the key to socialization is being comfortable with yourself first. People are like more sophisticated versions of dogs; they can sense if your nervous or tense and they will respond in kind.]

3. Life your shoulders up, then roll them back and down. This is relaxing (and will help your posture) and it is yet another thing you can control, which seems to be in your wheelhouse; you’re comfortable doing presentations because everything is written out or rehearsed, there’s no room for spontaneity, you have everyone’s full attention and you are in complete control.

4. Accept that you won’t be able to control the people/events in this room or party, but you CAN control how you respond to them.

5. Take another deep breath, in through the nose, out through the mouth. Very good.

6. Take out the bag of spiders you’ve been keeping in your inside jacket pocket and liberally sprinkle them throughout the party. Slowly, everyone else at the party will notice the spiders (the bag should have lots) and they will all individually come to the realization that they ALSO can’t control the events of the world. When Chaos is given a voice, the playing field becomes even.

[The spiders can smell blood in the air and will thank you for the gift you’ve given them.]

7. Isolate the person who seems to be the most “in charge” in the room. This will be an authority figure (in a work situation) or the person who seems least phased by all of the spiders (at a party or family gathering).

8. Unhinge your lower jaw and consume this person. His authority was imaginary and reliant on the cooperation of cowards and charlatans. You are neither. You are a shark in a sea of guppies. What everyone else in the world is looking for, you’ve already found and discarded.

9. The light inside you is the only light that truly matters. It burns brightest and hottest. It would be blinding to anyone else, but not you, you are the Warrior and the Father.

10. One more deep breath.

Hope this helps!
