this was… in it’s own way.. a hard fic to read (which makes it the best fic to read! pain! i love it! help me!) it’s very very very beautifully written and i hold it very close to my heart….how it portrays jack by himself and how hard it must’ve been…it also manages to weave in how mental illness plays its own role, even once you get together with the person you’re pretty sure is it for you. somewhat painful but cathartic and achingly tender.
BUT then there’s feelings! and angst! and misunderstanding! (the best type too! u know when one is like so crazily in love with the other and thinks its shockingly obvious but surprise, it’s not!) it’s just fantastic!
imagine a world where jack jumping over the snowbank, bringing bitty coffee, going on long walks classifies (in jack’s mind) as dating. so when bitty gets asked out, jack cannot believe the b e t r ay a l! we’re dating bitty! just read this and be happy :)
considering how popular this fic is it actually sat open in a tab for a looong loooooong time just bc…well… it’s 285,748 words. im an all or nothing girl as in i once read the entire maze runner trilogy in one night so i had to find the right time
first of all: angst. second of all: angst. third of all: ….. u guessed it… angst. BUT don’t worry, for every drop of angst there’s a metro-fucking-ton of smut and sweetness :)))) ;))) what this fic does brilliantly is create an OMC that is at the forefront of the story and do it seamlessly. this is a pretty iconic fic and tbh im definitely not one for fics longer than 100k but this was a fuckin’ beaut man
oh god this was P A I N F U L but in a very beautiful way??? (that’s how u know the writing was siCK) ambiguously happy ending but tbh in the end this fic is really just abt the unspoken quiet truth of being in love, of loving, of being human just lke Fffffffuck me up
not usually a big fan of soulmate aus but what i love about this fic is the pacing and even tho soulmate aus where seeing your soulmate = seeing color for the first time isn’t totally new this felt super fresh and original!
aw MAN this gave me the feeeeeels. established relationship but jack is not out, it’s a bit angsty but the jack perspective is just so gooood
EXTRA: It all started with a big Russian hockey player calling a small cat-loving hockey player a rat. You either h8 it or u luv it. In my case, I Love it, capital L, so enjoy: Alexei “Tater” Mashkov/Kent Parson
Kent has been telling himself a story, ever since the Q. It’s the epic story of Parse and Zimms, and he’s in love with it. // this fic is specifically meant for patater newbies and this fic does an amazing job of showing why kent and alexei just make sense. its honestly a Blessing.
lmao im gonna be 90 years old and still reccing Febricant’s fics…for real when i saw they wrote patater i was like…no..im dreaMing…or im dead? is . is heaven?? rlly unique approach to how she gets them together and gr8 build up :)))) Bless Febricant
You know american pancakes.. you may know those fancy french crêpes… but have you heard of the BEST pancakes out there? Dutch pancakes? No? Let me enlighten you! Dutch pancakes are not only as thick as you want, but also as large as you please. They aren’t very fancy but they’re super easy to make and customise.
Do you also want to eat these solely to fullfill your heart’s desire to eat the largest bacon pancakes possible? Would you love to roll up a pancake with the filling inside? Do you think you’d enjoy more space for toppings? Then these are the pancakes for you!
I translated the basic dutch pancake recipe to english so everybody can read it, and the measurements are given in grams/ milliliters AND cups (yes, I did maths for this). You can find it, tips, and fun facts below.
do you think you can tell me a bit about the pentacle? is it something that only applies to wiccans, or is there more to it? what does it mean? that kind of thing... if not i totally understand! sorry from coming to you about this!! you just seem like you know what youre talking about :')
Hey buddy sorry for like the two days later reply. I’m in the middle of finals (I have a weird school schedule cause I go to school online), so I’m very busy lately!! But I got Time so let’s do this.
The pentagram is a broadly used symbol, used by many different practices with different histories, so the it can mean many different things!
So, fun fact, “pentacle” is the term for a (typically) circular symbol often drawn on the ground (often in the shape of a pentagram) that can be used for various different magical purposes, including holding energy and evoking spirits. It is also the name for the tool itself, frequently found on occultists altars. You can see one in the gif above. It’s a tile with a pentagram on it.
A “pentagram” is the standard five-pointed star shape, frequently placed inside a circle.
You do not have to be Wiccan or Satanist to use the pentagram symbol. It is broadly used in many forms of magic and occultism, and was even, once upon a time and long, long ago, used by Christians to symbolize the 5 senses or the five trials of Christ.
In modern day magic, many people recognize the pentagram as a symbol of the five elements. That is, spirit, air, earth, fire, and water, said to be at each point of the star. The connection and balance of these five elements is often an ideal place to start work, and is a great way to contain energy when you begin to raise it.
It is also not uncommon to see it as a symbol of the five bodily senses, when upright.
You might use the pentagram as a general sort of symbol as well, like one might a sigil. You can charge it with your intent, and draw it wherever. One favorite of mine is using syrup on my morning pancakes. It’s also a great symbol of protection and the general elements.
Wiccans have embraced the pentagram as their symbol because of the prevalence of its use and the symbolism it holds. Often, you might see the pentagram inverted. This is not necessarily “evil,” as some might have you believe. It is simply the focus on the physical and sometimes, therefore, darker realms. Instead of pointing upwards to aspire to the heavens, it points downwards to focus on the base and primal. You will see this type of focus in other forms of magic, such as Satanism or certain ceremonial magicks.
Note: These responses are absolutely serious. They aren’t stereotypical at all and I assure you that every single type will definitely react like that in real life.
Ne: Ohh I love you, too! But I also love pancakes, sunshine and… bread! Like, bread can be so amazing. There are so many different types of breads! Like MBTI types! OMG I NEED TO MAKE A POST ABOUT MBTI TYPES AS BREAD.
Ni: But what is love? What is it about? How come that we are able to feel such a deep connection and how does its pattern fit into this complex world?
Se: Ohhhh I love you, too– wait omg! There’s a butterfly! *chases the butterfly*
Si: One time I loved someone, too. It was the most romantic story of my life and it started on a rainy day in November…
Te: Do you have evidence to support your statement?
Ti: …. What the fuck. Why?
Fe: *tears up* You love me? Someone loves me! LOVE ME FOREVER! PLEASE DON’T LEAVE ME!
Fi: ……. Wait a minute, I have to check whether love is acceptable according to my personal values.
Pancakes or Waffles? (Young Remus Lupin x reader-- drabble)
A/N: i got this idea bc i heard a conversation like this happening in the hall at school the other day and it made me laugh lmaooo
#14: “She’s so cute when she sleeps”
word count: 322
warnings: none :))
You’re laying on the couch in the Gryffindor common room, your head in Remus’s lap. He’s reading to you, for you’ve had a long week. Well, he was reading to you, but you fell asleep. He continued to read to himself until he could no longer ignore the fact that the most beautiful girl he’d ever seen was laying gracefully still on top of him. He just stops and looks at you, examining your every feature, ingraining you into his head, for he never wants to forget how absolutely gorgeous you are in this very moment. And you’re all his. He’s got the sweetest, dopiest grin on his face as he gawks at your sleeping form.
The portrait door swings open and suddenly, James and Sirius are talking very, very loudly. Something about them arguing over whether pancakes are better than waffles or not..? Who knows, honestly? It’s James and Sirius.
“Guys!!” Remus whisper-shouts, gaining his friends’ attention. “Y/N’s asleep! At least try to keep it down. Also pancakes are better.”
“I TOLD YOU!!!” Padfoot yells, pointing a finger at Prongs. “No one prefers waffles over pancakes!!”
“I can’t believe you’re siding with him!!!” James screams at Remus.
You’re awake at this point, however you haven’t opened your eyes; you’re merely listening to the conversation trying not to laugh.
“SHUT IT!!” Your boyfriend shrieks. “She’s just so cute when she sleeps! I don’t wanna-” He whimpers.
“Moony, her eyes are wide open,” Sirius says, deadpan.
You’re beaming up at him. “You think I’m cute when I’m asleep?”
All four of you start laughing now.
“No, but really. You think I’m cute when I sleep?” You ask quiet enough that only he could hear you.
He nods at you, a smile still playing on his lips. “Yeah, of course I do. You’re always cute, darling.” He leans down and kisses your nose. “And sweet as honey, or should I say syrup?”
Also, there’s a bunch of messages in my inbox that have been building up for the past few days. I’m not ignoring anyone, I’m just really shitty at the whole answering in a timely manner thing. But I’ll get to them in the next few days, I promise!
Also, I’ve lost a bit of motivation with writing the Lemons AU story but I have 24 posts ready to go (which is about halfway through what I want to get done before I start posting) and I’m hoping the motivation will come back once I get my nerd cave set up properly again.
Also, I’m considering doing a live stream for my next major follower milestone. Internet permitting (because Australian internet bites the big one) it should be next weekend but I’m still trying to work out the details of when and what I’m gonna be doing so I’ll let you guys know more when I know more.
ANYWAY! Pointless update done and time for me to sleep! Have a great day/night everyone =)
