Stormy Night


“Please stop following me.” 

You didn’t want to look him in the eyes anymore, for fear your glare would scratch away at his kindheartedness. You tore through your front door, kicking off your dewy flats at the step. Your silky scarf was ripped from your neck, tossed aimlessly towards the hat hanger where it fluttered to the floor. But you didn’t care. 

You bit your lip until it bled, hearing that he had, indeed, not stopped following you into your house. He hadn’t responded either. Both of you were soaking wet, the sudden rain being yet another disturbance of your evening out. 

“I told you to stop meeting with… them.” He finally said. You bit back your scoff, turning to face him to repeat what you’d said time and time again. 

“Stop telling me what to do!” You dug your clammy fingers against your cheeks, running them up through your wet tendrils. He looked down at you sadly, pity in the dark eyes gazing through damp locks. Why did he look so upset? Why did your life make him feel so bad? 

You felt your eyes grow warm, choking on a sob before continuing. “So what if I’m a goddamn whore? This is the most fun I’ve had since Taehyung left! This is the only thing I look forward to every time I wake up from a night of fucking endless tears!” 

You were on your knees then, having fallen under the burdening weight of your own sob story. Your cheeks were wetter than before; the dress you wore to the club that evening hiked up your thighs and twisted around your body. Of course, like every other distressed damsel, you’d received it from your lost love. But it worked wonders on making you the candy of desiring men’s eyes.

Taehyung up and left two months ago, leaving you on your front steps in the rain. But the rain was much different right now; not the damning drizzle it was that night. No, now it was pouring, dreadfully, like the feeling was suddenly sinking in. The thunder clapped consistently, lightning flashing without regard for your fear of it. 

You looked up, meeting Jungkook’s eyes. You were puzzled by the look in them. There was no kindness. No warmth. He looked distressed, and you suddenly felt bad. For existing, haha. 

“I’m sorry.” You were still looking at him as you said it, and you saw the morph of emotions pass his features. He was then enveloping you in his arms, his warmth immediately comforting you. You let your tears fall then. 

“Jungkook, I am so sorry.” You repeated through sobs, not heeding his pained words of reassurance. “I’m not sorry for the men, because if I’m being honest, they help.” You hiccuped; he tensed. “It’s fucked up but they help. But I’m sorry for not being the friend you want in your life—” 

“Shut up, Y/N.” 

His voice was hoarse, and you couldn’t help the widening of your eyes. His large hands went to your shoulders, pushing you until you were nearly nose to nose. Thunder clapped then, the lights flickering for a brief moment, as if to add to the intensity of his gaze. “Just… shut up.” 

He went on to kiss your cheeks, your forehead, your chin, the underside of your jaw. But all you could do was look ahead as his lips ghosted and chastely met the surface of your skin. His eyebrows were knitted, eyes closed, an almost desperate look on his face.

You bit your lip, arms falling limp to your sides. This is your fault. He’s too good for this. You exhaled sharply, saying, “I couldn’t help myself. After Tae left.” 

Jungkook stopped, head slowly raising to meet your orbs once again. The pain and desperation you saw on his face was almost too much to bear, but you forced yourself to maintain eye contact. “I didn’t know how else to forget him. I didn’t fucking kno—” 

Your back suddenly collided with the wooden flooring, harshly, wrists being pinned far above your head. He was in-between your legs, groin to groin, to cease your thrashing from the sudden shift. “You can start by using me!” Jungkook voiced through gritted teeth, a vein popping in his neck. 

He thrust his hips against you, your pelvis jerking with the connection. “You can start by using your friends!” Another thrust, and your head was thrown back by the sheer power of his hips and angered words. 

“Jungkook—” Your lungs fought to breath properly, another crash of thunder shaking the windows. 

He then rolled himself against your core, the dress riding up and bunching around your waist as your friend burrowed his face in the crook of your neck. “Instead of strangers, use the ones who love you most! Fucking use me!” 

You cried out as his teeth impaled your flesh, his clothed cock paving against your exposed panties. 

“Fuck, Jungkook!” He was motivated by your wail of ecstasy, his fingers beginning to roam freely. 

You grew hot, and you were already damned wet, but your body responded desperately towards his actions, and soon you were clawing at his leather jacket. This was beyond the friendship you two were accustomed to, though with his palms groping your breasts through the silky fabric, you could only push that thought aside and arch your back into him. 

“Stop making me feel so useless!”

His fingers sought to abuse your nipples, pinching them until you cried out. 

“You’re not useless—!” You gasped, reveling in the pain and pleasure he drove you to. 

“And that’s why you’re with a different guy each week?!” His hand flew from your breast to tear the lace from between your legs, and you inhaled sharply, the cold air stinging you pleasantly. 

“I didn’t want you… to worry…!” You exclaim in winded pants, clinging to him as he continued his dry thrusts. It was becoming sweltering beneath him, despite the change in temperature as his cold fingers wasted no time gliding between your slick folds, thumbing your bundle of nerves until your toes were twitching uncontrollably.

“I always worry!” He drilled a finger inside of you, and you released whatever the combination of a moan and a gasp was. Writhing beneath him, you shakily clutched his jacket, managing to pry it off his shoulders enough for him to get the memo, shrugging it off with a haste you never witnessed before. 

He replaced his finger with his tongue, so suddenly you didn’t even see him bend down to lap at your succulent sweetness as though it were the only cure for an illness he possessed. “Oh god.” You murmured, eyes rolling back behind closed lids. 

You saw the underside of his jaw lurch forward with every pass of his tongue dipping in and out of you, and you groaned at the sight. It was hot. You always knew he was hot. But as he lightly nibbled on your meaty wings, his eyes meeting yours with a determined look you have never seen, you realized how attracted you were to him. 

With powerful fingers, he clenched your thighs so hard you were sure they’d bruise, but he was keeping you wide open, only for him. 

After he felt you clenching around his tongue, he pulled back, licking his lips and diving in for your first shared kiss. His wet lips melded against your own, where yours willingly opened and welcomed him. You tasted the bitter sweetness of yourself and wondered how much of you he’d drank up, the silkiness of his tongue corrupting your senses. It was all so much that you pulled away, gasping for air. 

“Jungkook—you really want to do this?” You are curious as to why you questioned, because the flame in his eyes gave it away. Before he could respond, you said, through pants, “I’ve been with so many guys, I don’t want you to be disgusted or—” 

The man literally growled, his teeth clashing painfully against yours, to the point it was no longer the sweetness of your core infiltrating your mouth, but also the burn of copper, of blood. He sucked your bottom lip until you squealed in a joyous pleasure, then he forced you to squirm so he could pull your dress over your head, tossing that damn thing god knows where. You were still on the floor, which wasn’t entirely comfortable until he had you raising your bare chest in the air so he could pass his lips through the canyon of your soft mounds. 

That worked magically. 

At last, the both of you were freed from your constricting, confining clothing. His cock brushed against you and you whimpered, a sound he stole off your lips passionately. When he pulled away, he snarled, his index finger coating itself in your fluid again as he looked down at you. “I don’t care how many guys you’ve been with,” You let out a wail with his strokes, as he then positioned his poised member at your entrance. “Just that I’m the last one.” 

He slid in so fast and hard, you were certain you’d seen flashes not belonging to the lightning outside. Jungkook didn’t give the time to cope with his girth and length, continuing with the same intensity he had the first thrust. He pummeled you into the floor, your spine flexing, body curving up into him. 

Jungkook groaned loudly in your ear, his torso connecting slickly with yours, as though two waves of an ocean were gliding back and forth. He sloppily sucked sensitive areas of your neck, ones he discovered made you moan the most, ones causing you to clench tighter. It was messy, but messily perfect and beautiful; two desperate fools seeking to quench a desire that had long since been ignited. And through it all, the pit of your stomach was growing tighter by the second. 

“Ah… Jungkook!” You ran your nails down his back, earning delightful shivers. 

Your head was bouncing, and you couldn’t think straight, which was why you hardly noticed when a crash of thunder shook the entire house, and the power cut. In total darkness, the only sounds were the hot moans and pants in your right ear, and a white noise that made everything suddenly more realistic. 

Your legs spread wider, then Jungkook hooked the right one over his elbow, angling into you. His thrusts faltered briefly, and you almost protested him, but your words fumbled in your mouth when his newfound slow pace was met with even harder, more aggressive pumps into you. 

“Fuck, Y/N! Don’t make me.. worry about you… again!” 

You screamed out, desperately clinging to his muscular build. “I won’t!” 

“Don’t you dare—” His bare foot flexed against the wood floor as he pulled out all the way, “… ignore me ever again!” He slammed in so intensely stars were invading your vision. You felt tears in your eyes, whether it be from his words or mighty fine fucking, you couldn’t tell. But you clutched him harder, nodding into his neck as your head raised. You kissed his collarbones until he slowed down again, laying you down completely. 

He stopped his moving, fingers lightly coming up to your chin so you’d look at him. His gaze was soft, softer than you had seen all evening. He wasn’t smiling, but he wasn’t frowning. Jungkook moved his arm beneath your head to cushion it against the flooring. “Y/N.” His lips trailed the tears that had made it to either sides of your cheeks. 

“I will make you forget him. I love you. I will always love you.” And with that, you only released one sob before he was kissing you with the immense passion he hadn’t before displayed, his hips rolling into yours intently, a free hand encompassing whatever parts of your body were cold. 

Your breasts, your back, your hips, your wrist, he warmed it all, fingers lacing with yours as he refused to break eye contact even as he approached his climax. You felt the wave wash over you, the sticky surface of sweat against the cool air, and he twitched from within you. Intimately embracing you as he finished off with a groan, he remained inside, only rolling over so you were both chest to chest. 

“Thank you.” You found yourself saying. He didn’t respond, but you could feel his smile against your scalp. 

The power remained out, the rain and thunder continued, and you knew you were left in his comforting arms for the rest of the night. But you had to break the silence. For something that was far overdue. 

“I love you too.”

**warning: SMUT**

I hovered over Shawn’s lap and kissed him oh so slowly. My hands rested on his chest to support myself. His hands, however, could not stay in one place for long. They moved from my cheek, down my shoulder and arm then to my waist. They soon found my breasts and squeezed lightly. Shawn’s bottom lip rested between my lip while we kissed. He had just gotten home from tour, and as much as we wanted to jump right into sex, we took our time kissing one another.

His eager hands roamed underneath my shirt and pulled it over my head. His fingers reached into my bra and teased my nipples. I continued to only kiss him but began to grind on his crotch slowly. A hard bulge started to grow where I sat on Shawn’s lap. Our tongues glided over one another’s and Shawn whimpered into the kiss. I finally pulled away from Shawn’s lips for the first time since he removed my shirt, gasping for air.

“What’s wrong?” I breathed out. Shawn was struggling with his breath more than I was.

“Nothing, keep going.” He encouraged. I didn’t believe him, but kissed him again anyways. I lowered myself back onto his lap and he groaned as soon as my clothed core made contact with his length, which was also still clothed. I pulled away once again, giving him a look that told him to confess what was wrong. “Okay, fine. It’s just that I missed you and I really need you to, uhm, touch me.”

I rolled my eyes at how needy he was but continued kissing his sweet lips. Shawn’s hands quickly found my butt; he squeezed hard and I gasped. I barely let my lips linger over his while I looked into his gorgeous eyes. He looked so eager for my touch, like he was craving it. I loved to see him this way. I pecked his lips lightly before removing his shirt. Regardless of how long I had been with Shawn, I was always pleased when I saw him undressed. His body was, for lack of a better word, perfect. There was no other way to put it.

I kissed his neck teasingly, my tongue grazing his warm flesh occasionally. His breath hitched in his throat and I took it as a sign to continue. I nipped at his neck with my teeth before sucking hard enough to leave a mark. I grinded on his crotch only to hear more sounds leave his lips.

“Fuck, I need you.” Shawn groaned. I kissed down his toned chest and abdomen slowly. I kissed just below his belly button, right at the skin above his belt. I listened to his begs and whimpers only moments longer before deciding to give in to him. My fingers worked to take off his belt and Shawn’s previously tense body relaxed underneath me.

Shawn was still eager and as soon as I pulled his pants down his legs, he kicked them off. I looked up at Shawn, into his eyes. I rested my hands on his thighs, so close to his throbbing length. I rubbed him through the tight, thin fabric of his boxers. I looked up at Shawn to see him biting his plump bottom lip. I teased until I sensed Shawn actually couldn’t take it any longer. I wanted to hear him begging for my touch, but only to a certain extent.

I slowly pulled down his underwear then starting pumping up and down his cock with my hand. Shawn already breathed heavily and was very anxious. I took him into my mouth and sucked the head lightly. I licked the underside of his cock right below the head, the most sensitive area. I began to bob my head up and down now and Shawn seemed to enjoy it; his soft moans told me so.

I pushed my mouth down as far as I could go without gagging. Shawn struggled to keep his hips from bucking up so I rested my hands on them, trying to keep them down. I looked up Shawn’s body at his face to see his head thrown back in pleasure. I pushed my hair away from my face, attempting to get it out of my way. Shawn noticed my struggle. He sat up and his hand served as a makeshift hair tie for the moment, as his back rested against the headboard. My mouth moved up and down his length faster now that my hair was no longer an issue. Shawn now had some control over how fast I sucked him, holding my hair, and took full advantage of this.

“Y/N,” Shawn moaned. I smirked then quickly continued to suck him. I swirled my tongue around the tip and felt Shawn’s whole body tense at the sensation. I glanced up at Shawn to briefly look into his eyes. He stared down at me intently, watching my every motion. “I’m gonna cum.”

After Shawn’s announcement, I only picked up the the pace even more. I bobbed my head quickly up and down trying to bring him to orgasm. Even with this fast pace, Shawn still pushed my head faster with my ponytail. I felt veins twitching on his cock and prepared myself to swallow what was coming. I sucked him clean of his juices and felt his whole body relax immediately after.

I raised myself up to face Shawn again. He pulled me onto his lap and flipped me over. Shawn was now on top of me and worked to remove my pants.

“My turn.” Shawn said smirking as he began kissing down my halfway nude body.

Why I Love Taryon Darrington

It seems like Tary will sadly be leaving us soon as one Mr. Shorthalt has dramatically re-entered the scene. During his brief (in real time) stay with Vox Machina, he became my favorite character despite his perhaps unwelcome first appearance. Over the course of their adventures, Vox Machina, though still a hilarious and lively group, became jaded and somewhat unhappy with the ways of the world and the choices they had made in their lives. Tary burst onto the scene and made them remember whats great about being a hero and how lucky they are to have great friends and this loving family.  

Honestly I do not think Sam was planning this character very carefully. Something along the lines of I want a funny character that’s very weak and has support magic so that VM can stay fairly well balanced. Then he was thrown into it unprepared and just mad it up as he went and it turned into this beautiful character who represents many of us in the community who have never really seen ourselves as heroes in fiction at all, let alone high fantasy. Just like VM, Critters fell in love with Tary once they saw that he was weak and only pretending at confidence. A friendless kid who read and read yearning to escape into their books and ride away to a happier place. Dreaming of being respected, wanted, needed by anyone. Feeling that familiar loneliness and the ache of old abuse from fellow kids or families, Tary’s ability to be the hero he dreamed of fulfills a fantasy many of us harbor in our hearts. That’s the whole reason why we watch and play Dungeons and Dragons after all. Tary also fulfilled the dream of many to be an unapologetically openly gay adventurer. To stand up to his family and demand that they love him just as he is.

Though he intends to return to his family soon, he has brought compassion and happiness back into Vox Machina. Despite his vanity, Tary always believed in the NPCs they encountered and just wanted to do the right thing. Despite the fact that this is clearly based on naïveté, it reminds everyone that you do not necessarily need to use cruel means to get the job done. Kind of like having a small child around, Tary made everyone want to be a little bit better to live up to his glorified impressions of them.

On a more personal level, his blatant admiration of Keyleth as his immediate singling out of her as the leader made her feel confidence in her power and her journey that she had never previously been able to fully muster. He thought super highly of Percy both because if his enormous admiration for his mechanical genius but also because Percy was his first real friend. Tary saw only kindness in Percy and his inventions which was a really new thing for him. Percy, though not yet fully, has started to be able to see himself as a kind and likable person. Although Vex was cool at first, she saw herself in Tary once they got to know each other. Most obviously his need for love from a cruel father, but also his love of money, fashion, and freedom. A very unexpected side effect, Vex learned to trust another more than than her own brother sometimes. By helping Tary, Vex, like Percy, found the kindness and mercy she had been searching for within her self.

I will be very excited if Tary does stick around for the Ank’horrel arc to witness this pyramid scheme, although it would make things very tricky for Sam. Also it seems like this arc is just the tip of the iceberg leading into a series of climactic events in the series. Either way, Tary has left Vox Machina and the Critical Role fandom better than when he came and will continue on to improve his family and his town with his charitable actions. Despite his occasional ditziness or arrogance at his core Tary is truly a sweet and generous charter and I am so glad for the joy he brought to the last few months of Critical Role.

Dear ‘Supergirl’, I love you! Also, are we breaking up?!?

I’m one of those folks who is currently in a passion love-hate or else hate-love relationship with the show Supergirl depending on the day.  I wanted to write this long post for folks who are also processing this currently.  I had been thinking for a long time that aside from the single thread of the Mon-El storyline, Supergirl still had a solid, core identity as a show.  The show’s appeal to its audience rested on four foundations in my mind:  1) the incredible likability and reliability of their dynamic lead with her awesome combination of classic hero problems and recognizable lady problems 2) a charismatic and deep sisterhood that formed the central love relationship and unified the dramatic arcs of the show and also let it pass the Bechdel test every episode quite easily 3) positive representations of both women and the men who are also outsiders that they share love bonds with, and 4) general lightheartedness and positivity, so even when it went dark, it was just not all THAT dark.  At its worst, the show was fluffy or annoying. 

With the trust I had established through s1, I thought that what they were trying to do with Mon-El was to depict a narcissistic, sexist guy who turns into one of the good guys.  I thought, well, they think that’s a positive message.  They’ve depicted him an “outsider” or misfit, because he’s among all these high-functioning outsiders acting like an incompetent norm.  And I thought, well, this was a terrible idea.  When you write a subversive story, and then you subvert your subversion, you get normative crap that’s even more generic than the original crap.  It’s a parody that’s hard to watch.  But it’s all well intentioned.  And it will be over soon.  It’s not the show.  This won’t kick the foundations out from under the show.  

I am honestly no longer confident that this was well-intentioned or that it won’t topple the show.  I am holding onto a strong, final thread of trust in this show.  But this feels now more like backlash within this show against its own core identity and values.  The way they have written Mon-El feels like a gender panic and also a heteronormative panic to me.  And it is absolutely NOT the actor.  He’s clearly fine.  He even seems like he’s probably really sweet in real life while acting like a complete jerk on tv, kind of like when Orlando Bloom tries to play a villain, and it’s like, yeah, no, you buy teddy bears for your girlfriend and one for yourself to match when you do, don’t try to play me here, babe.  It’s the character, the caricature they have written.  When they could have written ANYONE - a thousand other men instead of this one.  So why this one?

So Riverdale was, against all odds, pretty good! I enjoyed it a lot, and it did a lot of things right. That said, it could do a lot of things a lot better, so here is my Official Riverdale wishlist for Season 2:

  • GIVE JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS A REAL PLOT. 
    • Yes, Riverdale, it’s nice that you’ve decided to up your Diversity Quotient by making several traditionally-white characters into people of color, but it doesn’t mean much if you just shuffle all that color off to the side. Hell, you don’t even have to make their plots about being black! Just give them something TO DO.
  • LET US SEE JOSIE AND CHERYL’S FRIENDSHIP.
    • Josie was willing to do Archie two huge favors because of him helping out Cheryl. Supposedly, these two are tight, but I don’t remember them ever speaking to each other onscreen. Cheryl needs some goddamn friends, so the least you can do is use the friend she supposedly already has. Hell, make them a couple! More lesbians are never bad.
  • MAKE KEVIN A REGULAR AND GIVE HIM SOMETHING TO DO.
    • He’s the Sherriff’s son for heaven’s sake. He should have a more prominent place in solving the mystery. Let him stand up to his dad when he thinks his dad is wrong, let him see and try to wrestle with his father’s part in enabling systemic corruption through complacency. And give him a boyfriend! Bring back Joaquin, or invent a new one.
  • CHUCK CLAYTON REDEMPTION ARC.
    • Yes, he’s a jerk, but he’s also the most prominent black male character on the show. The fact that he is a stereotypical jock and player is, uhh, not good. In the comics, he is a gentle, sweet-natured artist and unfailingly faithful boyfriend. So now that Riverdale!Chuck is Banned From Football, maybe he becomes a tortured artist and discovers he’s really good at it. Maybe through that, he meets his comics girlfriend Nancy, falls in for-real love, and comes to realize the error of his ways. Maybe he tries to help the Core Four and has to earn their trust due to his previous misdeeds. Who knows? Just make him better.

Long story short: you’ve got a bunch of non-straight, non-white characters. That’s good! Now do something with them.

Spike Analysis - Season 4

Alrighty, here we go with season 4 of Buffy. I know I said that I was going to do one post per significant episode for Spike, but his character development in season 4 is so damn choppy. His parts in any given episode are small, but put them together and you’ve got a lot to work with. So, that’s what we’re gonna do. From the top!

We see Spike initially in “The Harsh Light of Day.” This is the episode that ends up crossing over with Angel (one of the episodes this season, anyway). Basically, Dru has dumped Spike again and he’s back in Sunnydale with Harmony. He’s looking for the Gem of Amara which will make him invincible. Why does he want to be invincible? Well, I’ve got a theory (that it’s a demon. A dancing demon… Sorry). Spike for sure wanted to be invincible so that Buffy wouldn’t kick his ass the next time he tried to kill her—that worked well, huh?—but I think he also wanted it for personal reasons. You know how Angel always talks about how he wishes he could go out into the sun and be “a real boy” or whatever? I think, subconsciously, Spike wanted that, too. Also, one of the main things with Spike this episode is his new relationship with Harmony. The whole thing is super abusive on his part, and all that is, is Spike wanting to take out his anger for women on someone. It’s a horrible thing to do, but how much can you really blame the poor sod? The dude had to turn into a blood-sucking creature of the night to escape the shame of rejection from Cecily. The only other thing with this episode is that Spike totally gets his ass kicked by Buffy when he tries to kill her on the UC Sunnydale campus. He loses the Gem, which gets taken to Angel, which he then goes after. I’m not going to go over that episode of Angel because all it is, is normal Spike stuff. No development.

Okay, next up to discuss is “The Initiative.” This is where The Initiative kidnaps Spike and sticks that behavior chip in his head. There’s not a whole lot to talk about by way of character development until the scene with Willow in her dorm room. Spike went there to kill Buffy, right, but he settled for Willow instead. Willow and Spike are always great together because, even if he’s trying to kill her, they’re always really sweet to each other. I don’t if that’s because Spike identifies with her or what. That would make sense in this scene because Spike has just been dumped by Dru, and Oz has just left Willow. It could also be because, at Willow and Spike’s cores, they’re just big ‘ol softies. Anyway, back to the scene. So, Spike figures out here that he can’t kill, bite, or hurt Willow. Which is super embarrassing for him. It’s not hard to miss the metaphor pointing to impotence here. The show plays up the sensual/sexual aspect of being a vampire quite a bit. I mean, it makes sense considering the drinking of blood most likely provides the same euphoric effect that sex does, not to mention, they’re both primal acts. Willow comforts him until she realizes she’s insane and hits him over the head with a lamp.

Follow me to “Pangs” for some more Spike-chip developments. So, I’m gonna paraphrase here what James Marsters said in the DVD featurette about Spike on the Season 4 DVDs. Basically, the fun part about being a vampire (unless you’ve got a soul) is getting to kill and terrorize people. You can steal anything you want, kill anyone you want, and you’ve got no repercussions to deal with. However, now Spike can’t do that. Not only won’t he get a job, but he really can’t because he doesn’t exist to the world as a real person. He can’t kill people to eat them or to rob them, so there’s no way for him to get blood. Harmony’s given up on him and the only people he knows in town are the damn Scoobies. So… he’s fucked. This is the first of a few episodes of Spike living with Giles. Season 4 is kind of rubik’s cube of confusion for Spike as a character because… where does he fit? You can see the various different scenarios the writers try to put Spike in to make him work within the Scoobies. This episode, for example, is the bit where they try and make Spike into Cordelia. He gets ties up and has to listen to the Scoobies discuss what to do about this Native American spirit that is trying to kill all of them (because they don’t want to hurt him since… well, since America has hurt enough Native Americans for several lifetimes). For Spike, the solution is very simple: all that shit happened a long time ago, and you need to kill him before he kills you. Don’t be dumb. Which sort of establishes Spike as an intelligent and observant character, and that’s something that gets used and abused for the rest of the show. It also tells us that, if they have to, the Scoobies and Spike can stand to be around each other.

Moving right along to “Something Blue.” I’ve not got a lot to say here. This episode is pretty much Buffy and Spike making disgusting smooching noises and Giles not being okay with it. The only thing I would say towards Spike’s development is that it’s the first of two seeds planted this season that end up growing toward Spike falling in love with Buffy in the following season.

The next significant episode this season is “Doomed.” Spike finally figures out that he can hurt/kill demons. This is, of course, after he tries to kill himself in Xander’s basement. When he, Willow, and Xander are walking out of the museum, Spike attempts to make Willow and Xander feel like inferior pieces of shit on the grounds that they’re just weighing Buffy down. You can see in that scene that Spike is happy to be able to cause someone some pain somehow, which seems to be fine for him in that moment. But the real kicker is when he realizes he can still kill—it just has to be demons. And, shockingly enough, that’s good enough for him. This sort of backs up something that he and Angel talk about in Angel’s 5th season: that Spike just wanted kill while Angel was in it for the evil. All of this leads to him, in the next season, believing that he doesn’t want to kill people anymore (that was his reasoning when he was trying to tell Buffy he loved her) and then to him actually not wanting to kill people anymore when he gets his soul. So, this episode is huge for Spike, and we see the results from it carry all the way to the end of the chip’s storyline.

“A New Man” and “The I in Team” I’m going to sort of glom together because basically what these two episodes do is begin the mutually beneficial relationship between Spike and the Scoobies (I do a thing for you, you pay me money. You do a thing for me, I may do another thing for you later… but only for money). Of course, we know this relationship keeps going in one form or another at least through season 5. I’m not so sure about season 6 because I don’t remember hearing him ask for money in that season. However, that’s the only way he could afford to buy blood unless, for some reason, the Scoobies decided to give him money to buy blood regardless because of his help after Buffy died. Maybe he got paid for babysitting Dawn. I dunno.

Okay, moving on. “Who Are You” is the second episode this season with Faith. Faith is already in Buffy’s body by this episode. The scene with Faith and Spike in the Bronze is the second seed that blossoms into Spike falling for Buffy. Yes, it is Faith in Buffy’s body teasing Spike and getting him all hot and heavy… but Spike doesn’t know this. He legit thinks Buffy is fucking with him right now. And you can totally tell that Spike would be down. I feel like this is an epiphany for him, like “Holy shit… she’s fucking hot.” You know? And then he says, “You and me are gonna have a confrontation.” Like, that’s such a formal way to tell her that he’s going to kick her ass? It’s like Spike was rehearsing what to say in his head, trying to make it sound menacing but cool and collected at the same time, and it just came out strange because he was so flustered. It’s one of my favorite moments from this season, for real.

I haven’t got a lot left to say about season 4. I mean, “The Yoko Factor” is a pretty good example of Spike being a very observant character. And it also tells us that Spike doesn’t give two shits about the lives of the Scoobies unless it benefits him. Like, he doesn’t give a fuck if Willow is gay or if Xander feels inferior or if Giles feels unwanted. He’s just uses it to further his own desires, which is classic Spike. I guess, with his deal with Adam, you get to see a different side of Spike in that Spike has never really been below someone before, at least not in the sense of working for them. So, that’s quite strange. And by the end of the season, the Scoobies have gotten used to Spike being around, even though they know he’ll still do shitty things if he can. Overall, other than the chip, Spike doesn’t have a lot going on in season 4. But, next up we’re working on season 5, and oh, boy. I’m pretty pumped. It’s gonna be a good time.

Hope you enjoyed the rambles!          

27/03/2017

Well, technically it’s the 28th now, but I’ve been busy.

First of all, wow. I made a small post on Sunday not expecting anyone to read it at all but more for me to read in the future and reflect on. Instead, I logged in to see I have 23 followers and 39 notes on my post so thank you all those who reblogged, liked and followed me today! It honestly means a lot and makes me happy that people are following me with my journey. I do love to follow back new accounts so lemme know if you want me to follow you back!

But ow. I woke up at 6am today to go the gym before uni. I managed to run for 20 minutes non-stop which is amazing for me honestly. But I forgot my towel so I was basically dripping with sweat after. But I’m not really ashamed to sweat at the gym now since it means I worked out hard and put effort into it. I also did some bodyweight ab exercises (since this gym doesn’t have a lot of ab machinery) so my core is beginning to feel the burn I went home and had a simple high protein breakfast of eggs, toast and two slices of ham. I like to eat relatively high protein since it’s great for recovery and fills me up well. I aim for around 100g protein a day, no more than 50g sugar (I have a sweet tooth that doesn’t really go away so I satisfy it with fruit), 50-60g fat and up to 300g carbs but I usually don’t end up having that much. Honestly, as long as something fits my macros and isn’t too filled with rubbish I’ll have it. A healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to be restrictive. 

It’s been insanely sunny and warm in England today, so I decided to bust my bike out of the garage after 3 months of winter to find it was near impossible to ride. Honestly, only after 5 minutes, my inner thighs felt like they were on fire. I took my bike to my uni repair society and essentially everything was wrong with it lol. It’s a folding bike I got for my birthday last year and I assembled it with my dad which explained why it was always so hard to ride. When I was riding home from uni it felt so light and seamless. I used to hate biking to uni and opted to walk instead because of how tired biking made me feel, but I’ll probably be biking from now on since I usually leave at 6pm latest while it’s still bright outside. My university is in a seaside town so I ended up biking along the seafront for about 30 minutes which was amazing. But now my inner thighs hurt like hell but I don’t mind. I’ll massage it a bit and take a soak in the tub and all should be ok in the morning. I’ll probably go the gym in the evening tomorrow since I felt tired all day today because I went in the morning. If I go in the evening, I can just come home, drink some tea and have a snack and jump right into bed instead of struggling to concentrate in my seminars. 


I’m actually surprised and happy that I’m still keeping with it. I really don’t know how, but a few days ago I just had a spark and I just didn’t want to continue eating crap and feel bad about it, but eat good food and be happy. Hopefully, I’ll be able to continue with it. Pics, stats, food and exercise plan will start to be posted from Friday (mainly for my use but if someone wants to lose weight together with me then why not?!) so I’m excited for that. Also because my boyfriend is visiting from London for the weekend and I haven’t seen him in two weeks (which isn’t long, but it feels so long!). And Nando’s. Friday = pay day = Nando’s. 

anonymous asked:

Apart from bughead, which other relationship (romantic or platonic) would you really like to see in season 2?

i’d like to see more varchie. i do really like them together, even though we haven’t seen a ton of their relationship yet. i don’t know, i just really like their story thus far. what i mean is, they connected the instant they met, but they stayed away from each other (romantically) because of how much they valued their friendships with betty. so seeing them sitting super close at pop’s, finally together, after a season of romantic screw-ups on archie’s part and burying her feeling on veronica’s part is really cute. i’d like to see more of that in season 2 

i don’t know if we’re ever going to see joaquin again, but i would have liked to see more of him and kevin in season 2. i think mostly because i adore kev so much and want him to have a boyfriend he can proudly hold hands with in the hallway instead sneaking around with boys who will likely ignore him the next day. –and i’m just going to say, i find it SO unfair that varchie are likely going to have a sex scene after 5 seconds of being together when kev and joaquin were together for 9 episodes and only got like 3 kisses. granted, 2 of the 3 were hot make outs, but still. (i also want to complain that bughead have had no make outs despite being together for 7 episodes, but they’ve also had the most kisses by far so i’m going to shut up about it. i do love their soft, sweet touches. it really shows you that their bond is an emotional one and that will last much longer than a relationship focused on physical attraction) 

after cheryl gets the help she needs and is in a good place emotionally, i’d like to see her with a girlfriend. i don’t really care who as long as they treat each other well and make each other happy 

friendship wise, i’d like to see more fp and fred. i also ship them romantically, but i’m a realist and know that’s very very unlikely 

i’d like to see more core four and five scenes 

more veronica and jughead scenes 

i’d like to see more veronica and cheryl as well. i really liked that v was becoming cheryl’s shoulder to cry on for awhile there 

more archie + the pussycats would be nice (even though i’m so tired of the music aspect of the show). it honestly made me sad when they shut him down in episode 1 when all he wanted was to learn from them. so, i’d like to see him and joise develop a better relationship. i’d also like to see him apologize to val for being a terrible boyfriend to her 

more kev and veronica/betty, definitely. kev and v’s friendship is one of my absolute favorites. they’re so amusing together. –and i really loved the way kevin looked out for betty and was ready to smite veronica when her and archie hurt betty in eps 1 and 2, so i’m a little sad that we haven’t seen much of their friendship since then. i honestly got more best friend vibes from betty and kev in the first few episodes than i did from betty and archie  

um, more archie and jughead would be okay. i like the brotherhood they have going on there. archie is far from perfect, but the way he stands up for jughead is A+ 

i’d like to say more b&v friendship, but god knows the stans will cry queerbait every time they make eye contact, so idk about that one 

i’d like to see more polly/betty and jughead/the coopers too 

My favorite scenes:

1. I Don’t Want to Go Back: I am Bawson trash through and through, but I’m here for Ginny first and foremost and this scene tore me to shreds. Kylie kilT it and, damn, if Ginny’s pain, stress, and frustration wasn’t palpable as hell then I don’t know what is. You have this overwhelmed 23 year old who is carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders and all she wants is just one moment of normalcy opposed to her constantly playing a role. One of the best things to come out of this was the fact that we see how much others genuinely care about Ginny.  

2. I Don’t Need a Man to Save Me/I Make the Speeches: I don’t think this speech necessarily applied to Mike, but damn, I was in awe of Ginny as she let him have it. lol. Someone needed to hear what’s been weighing on her chest for a while and who better than Mike? She feels comfortable and emotionally safe around him pertaining the pro stuff. But, I love this assertiveness and Ginny dictating what happens. She may be a duckling at times, but she can call her own shots.

3. Bawson Bar scene and almost kiss: Everything leading up to the almost kiss was magic. Mike asking why Ginny lied, Ginny not being to answer for it, the reasons they’ll miss each other, gah…it’s only been 10 eps–how am I THIS invested??? The almost kiss was everything. Mike letting Ginny lead and Ginny not letting anything talk her out of the kiss UNTIL ‘The Call’ happens. The hot man breath and beard touch.*sighs* This is a waking nightmare because I need resolution. 

4. The Day After Almost Kiss/Evelyn is Us scene: Every time I watch this scene I HOLLER. Evie: Tell me how last night went? (referring to Noah) Ginny: It got weird (referring to Mike). This entire scene is golden, from the carpet matching the face to nuance–and Ginny SEVERELY undersold the moment. Then, Amelia walked into. This series wants to kill us, but FOX might. *crosses fingers for the best*

5. Mike gushing about Ginny on National TV: It’s one thing to say someone is a good player, but not only was Mike defending her on national TV, he was gushing as he did it. I know Janet and Will has been there since the beginning, sacrificed a lot, and love her to pieces, but Mike is her number one fan. How the roles have changed. 

6. First Mound Speech/Do this for you...: I think many of us wrote Mike off and saw him as an ass because, yah, he was in the beginning, but how the tides changed in ONE episode. Who knows what others told Ginny about before she made it to the show, but it appears that Mike was the first one to tell her, “Do this for you or not at all–do this for your team.” She’s a ballplayer first and foremost and he reminded her of why she played to begin with and, ultimately, what the bottom line was. 

7. Mike tearing into Omar while outing him own feelings: Mike takes love seriously. You don’t fall in love with someone based on looks–you have to get to know them. Also Mike: "Well, I believe in the soul… the cock…the pussy… the small of a woman’s back… the hangin’ curveball… high fiber… good scotch… that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent overrated crap… I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a Constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve, and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days.“-Bull Durham (1988)

8. Ginny’s Kimmel interview: This is where we first (???) get of glimpse of Ginny’s media savvy. She doesn’t want to speak on the issue, but Amelia forced her hand, so she uses her platform to call out to acknowledge her change in status and uses this moment to address rape/sexual assault case. This scene really highlighted Ginny’s complexities also while giving us a insight on her feminists beliefs all while wanting to be one of the guys. 

9. Mike’s late night call to Ginny: Mike’s tired of not having someone to talk to at night, so he calls Ginny….even though it’s just to give her shit. Their comfort level and ease with one another just warms me soul. :)

10. Ginny taunting Mike for not hitting bombs: Look, y’all this was some straight up foreplay. I can only imagine what the sex will be like. lol. She goes from playing taunting to encouraging, and Ginny is Mike’s biggest fan. 

11. Every interaction in “Don’t Say It”: I was both dead and got my life from their awkward interactions and bull put scene. I LIVED. “I’m good, you good?” “I’m good” “Good.”///“Oh, so that’s what we’re going with???” “Yep, because that’s what happened.”–What in the TV Gods Heavens. This is too much. I’m flatlining just thinking about these lovesick fools.

12. “Put Your Helmet On”: When I say that Ginny is Mike’s number one fan…ole girl got hubby in the game. Use her womanly wiles, riled up the crowd, and made it impossible to keep Mike benched for his “last” game. She not only wanted Mike to bat as his teammate, but as his friend and his biggest fan. And that wink was everything as well as Mike’s frown.

What’s y’all favorite scenes? Or do y’’all have commentary to add?

anonymous asked:

Describe your 3 best tumblr friends with an ice cream flavor and why did you chose that one.

omfg OK I used a Ben and Jerry’s flavor list hahaha

@jamesandclairefraser  would be Phish food - sweet and wonderful to the bone (chocolate ice cream) but has lots of layers (marshmallow & caramel swirls) and always surprises me with how tough she is (fudge fish?? sure bc fudge is tough to chew sometimes??? just go with it)

@balfeheughlywed would be mint chocolate chip - refreshingly honest (and/or salty but let’s go with honest bc that seems to be more minty to me) but also incredibly kind and all around a solidly good person bc a chocolate chip is all around goodness and that’s Lauren.  

@madambalfe would be salted caramel core - one of the most genuinely kind, sweet and down to earth people (sweet ice cream with blonde brownies) but speaks her mind about things that affect her deeply (salted caramel core)

phew I’m actually really proud of this hahaha

First of all, thank you so, so much for the compliments, sweet anon! You’re really too kind <3

Twila is such a sweetheart, I just adore her. It’s true she’s a cinnamon roll, but she’s also got a little core of sass that I absolutely love seeing. Almost like a hedgehog covered in cotton candy! (Okay, that may not be the best euphemism…) She’s half fae demon and her style of casting magic is based in Wicca rituals, which is a different method than I use myself. I absolutely love talking to her about magic, getting another perspective is always super interesting!

Irene intimidated me at first, I can’t lie! She’s so poised and put together, and compared to her I felt like a homebody lump. Kind of like the difference between a well-cut business suit and a scrappy hoodie! It was definitely hard to get close to her, she doesn’t open herself up much, but once you’ve earned her respect and trust, she’s on your side for life.

Noryn is an adventure. There’s no other way to put it! She’s so energetic, she charges whatever room she’s in and just makes me want to get up and go do something. Somehow she finds the most interesting things (like a restaurant and bar with a crazy unicorn carnival theme!) and I just love meandering with her. She’s so like a cat, wandering off and coming and going, and on occasion she’ll hole up and keep to herself for a while, I think to recharge. Just like a cat though, she always comes back!

Iridessa is absolutely beautiful, probably the most gorgeous out of all of us in my opinion! That’s a pretty shallow description though, she’s also super sweet and probably the sister-in-law that I’m closest to. Her sense of style is absolutely incredible, I’m kind of hopeless and I’d make her dress me every day if I could! She’s also easy to please with that massive sweet tooth of hers, and her way with words blows me away. Listening to Irene and Iri team up and make sweet/snide/sarcastic comments trashing someone who’s been rude to them is an absolute treat. I wish everyone got to hear their sass, they’re brutal in the most impressive way!

The five of us don’t always go out together (Irene takes her job very seriously, it’s just part of who she is) but when we do, it’s always a great time! Irene and Iri are amazing to go shopping with, and Noryn always finds something interesting tucked away in a side street for us to poke our heads into. My absolute favorite thing to do though is cook for everyone. Big holiday feasts are always held at my and Sam’s house! Twila is one of the few people I let in my kitchen, she knows my cooking rhythm by now and she’s amazing when it comes to kneading bread. Iridessa and Noryn are easily kept at bay with treats, and Irene blows me a kiss when she sneaks by to grab drinks out of the fridge for herself or the others. I don’t do it for compliments (though all the wives are so sweet, they’re always boosting my ego), I just love cooking and baking to feed and take care of people. It’s the same when we go on vacation whether it’s a couple of us or the whole group of ten, I tend to be the go-to person to make arrangements and get everything organized and planned out because I love having everything set so that no one else has to worry a bit and can just focus on enjoying themselves. It’s how I show them that I love them!

Fun drawing ideas, mainly for character design

If you like to study from different art books and tutorials, that is awesome! It is a great way to learn and improve your at. I’m certainly still learning myself, but if anybody wants some tips from a fellow amature, I have discovered a few things that have helped me.

We often learn how to draw characters that have pleasing shapes and lines, which makes sense, but be careful! You can lose variety when you are too uniform. This can also depend on your personal style, if it is simple or realistic. I’m certainly not going to criticize anybodies technique or designs; I just wanted to share some things that I did which helped me when making characters.

anonymous asked:

What do you think sex would be like with Key, Minho, and Taemin?

If you don’t mind, I’m just going to do all the members!

Key
Sex with Key would be sweet, but also hot. He’ll kiss down your body, and he’s the type to unzip your pants with his teeth, all while keeping eye contact. He’ll finger you first, preparing you for him. He’ll whisper dirty things to you that will go straight to your core. When he has you dripping and begging for him, he’ll fuck you senseless. I feel like he’s the type to really like dirty talk and heavy petting.

Minho
He’s a dom. I gotta say it. He likes to be in control and to be rough. When he senses you’re in the mood, he’ll say, “You want Daddy to touch you?” When you nod yes, he’s the type to put you in handcuffs and won’t let you move or make a noise. When he becomes restless, he’ll flip you over and fuck you from behind. When he’s close to cumming, he’ll say, “Cum for me baby girl,” and when he feels your walls clenching around him, he’ll cum too.

Taemin
I think he’s a switch, but with more of a submissive preference. He likes for you to be in control, but he also likes to take the lead occasionally. He’ll hold his hands behind his back while he kitten licks your core. He restrain from touching himself because he knows you don’t like when he cums before you. If he’s a good boy you’ll let him fuck you, but you get to tell him when to cum.

Jonghyun
He’s a sub without a doubt. He’ll do everything you tell him to do, because he loves to please you, but he also is a brat. He’ll break your rules and touch himself or moan too loud. He loves when you punish him, like giving him spankings. He loves to whine too, god. He’ll whimper and beg you to let him touch himself or to let him fuck you.

Onew
I also think Onew is very dominant. He would love to worship your body and be in control all the while. He would leave love bites all over your body, most of them on your neck or on your inner thighs. He’ll make you watch him suck on his own fingers and insert them in you so you’ll be stretched out and ready for him. When the time comes that he fucks you, he’ll be on top, holding your hands above your head or choking you, whichever you prefer. He’ll tell you to say his name or he’d say, “Moan louder, I want everyone to know you’re getting fucked by the best.”

anonymous asked:

Hey! Love your blog! With the whole "adorable personality" comment Dan made to Phil, I've noticed Dan compliments Phil's personality often. Have you noticed that or just me? Also I can't find it but there was a video where he said he thought "Phil's personality was better than anyones" or something? It's so obvious how much he admires him. I think it's really sweet.

I definitely agree. As much as people give Dan a hard time for jokingly messing with or “picking on” Phil, I think he has always 100% been his biggest fan. I’m not even attempting to reference the origin of how they met and the fact that Dan was literally a fan, but rather the way you can so clearly tell he thinks the absolute world of him.

The video you are looking for was “A Chat with Dan Howell” posted on Bertie G’s channel. It is now removed but there is still the copy of it on vimeo that you can watch here  . Note: race is randomly brought up so please watch for context or else this could sound terribly wrong. Bertie is intentionally asking ridiculous questions to make the interview seem uncomfortable. B: “You’re both white…why is that? Why don’t you live with a black person?” D: “Uhh It’s not skin deep…Phil’s personality could be inside any skin case.” B: “Are you saying Phil’s personality is better than any black person’s in the world. Is that what you just said?” D: “Maybe…for me…personally…yes.” While the video was intended to be sort of awkward and a bit of a joke, I did not interpret anything funny or fake about Dan’s answer. “Phil’s personality could be inside any skin case” is really a lovely thing to say. He believes Phil’s personality to suit him best of anyone. Outer appearance makes no difference.

Dan has always seemed to find a way to sneak in little compliments for Phil. Between his subtle sweet comments during the radio show, his tendency to give unprovoked praise of Phil and his work across social media (especially those random twitter replies to fans) and the many statements on younow, it is clear that “your personality is too adorable” does not symbolize even half of it.

Dan seems to place high value on individuality and it is clear that this is something he strongly admires in Phil. I get the sense that he he is very drawn to uniqueness and the qualities that make people “different” and set them apart. He certainly does not view conformity as something to aspire to. One example that first came to mind was in regards to appearance. How many times has he shot down Phil’s comments about thinking of cutting his hair or getting a quiff with “no, you’ll look like everyone else.” While this is just a superficial example, I think it gives insight into his fear of blending in and the appreciation he has for eccentricity. Phil embodies a lot of that ideal. His quirkiness paired with an unabashed “I just am who I am” mentality is truly refreshing. He doesn’t apologize for who he is and instead embraces and owns that part of his personality. I think this is incredibly attractive to Dan. Whether as a friend or something more, I would guess that he finds those traits to be of great appeal. (cont)

Can you do a zutara oneshot on that Zutara Week Awkward picture by szikee on deviantart? It's the one with zutara in gym class with Azula. Sorry I can't send you the link, it doesn't allow it.

Sorry again that this is so late, I feel really selfish for getting so caught up in my other stories :(  but anyway I hope you like it!! 

And this is the image, I believe (I hope).  Lol.

—–

Zuko tried to warn her.  Really, he did.

Katara didn’t understand his sister.  Hell, Zuko didn’t understand his sister.  She was sickly sweet with a satanic core, and it frustrated him to no end. Worst of all, she could flip in an instant, completely unpredictable.  And today, being any normal day of school, was no different.

When he’d found out that he had gym class with Azula, he nearly burned his schedule on the spot.  But, when he found out Katara also had the same gym class, he didn’t demand to be switched out.  Even if his sister was there, having Katara to play soccer and flag football with would make the situation much more bearable.  At least he’d hoped.  

And getting to see Katara run around in those revealing shorts and tank tops?  That was just a bonus.

Unfortunately, Zuko realized his mistake of staying in said class far too late.  As he saw Azula swing her tennis racket with fiery purpose, smacking her ball to send it flying right into the back of Katara’s head, he knew he should’ve gotten them both out of that class.  Or the school.  Or the continent.  

The girl, a bewildered look shooting itself across her face, turned toward a smirking Azula, malice blazing in her cobalt eyes.

Fuck.

Sparking the Fire Day 31!

We made it you guys!! So I’ve been feeling really down on myself about my progress, weight hasn’t been moving, all that jazz. But then husband took these pictures and was like “I can already tell from what I remember that you’ve made a lot of progress” And he’s right! Look at that! LOooooOoOK! I FEEL SO AWESOME! Nothing teaches you to trust the process more than progress pictures.

So goals! Let’s see.

Fitness: nailed it this month, for real. I worked out 5 days a week consistently, a mixture of running and lifting. I can run a consistent 5k on a treadmill, and more run than walk that distance outside. I now have a benchmark of about a 40 minute 5k.

Food: Struggles definitely happened but I persevered and stayed keto all month and plan to keep it up even through our anniversary celebration next month (9 years! I can’t believe he’s not tired of me yet!)

Mental: I’d say this is the area I struggled most. Let’s say I scored a solid C grade here. I had some dark lows. I didn’t at all do my goal of drawing art, but I’ve found out there’s a moleskin journal that has every page labeled with the calendar date and I think I might purchase that and make it my goal for the year.

Next month I think I’m going to set the goal of shaving my 5k time down to 35 minutes. Lifting is always the easiest goal, because that’s always to just get stronger, lift more. I’m setting a goal to do a core only workout every week. Probably the t25 workout because Shaun T is life. And of course to keto on!

I really love my accountability buddies @i-run-i-read, @prettyfitguardian, and @totalbodyconfidence ! They’ve been so sweet and supportive, and great motivation because they are all three awesome, strong ladies. Also, I feel like @authenticpandas was almost an extra buddy of mine cus she kept encouraging me too! I can’t not work hard with all those badasses checking in on me.

I’m super curious why you guys need our country? I live in the United States. Can’t wait to figure out why you need that info.

All in all, awesome month! I can’t wait to go through everyone else’s stories of awesomeness! Onward to a better 2016!

Summary: The two of them only needed to stand close and all the air compressed and got heavy around them. Thick, tense…even sensual. And from the looks the others gave them, it didn’t go unnoticed… Richonne x Dixonne. 2-3 Shot. Maybe more.

*This story hasn’t been updated since 2014 and it is both a Richonne/Dixonne threesome fic. It’s a very worth while read IMO, no matter which relationship you prefer.

Locked Out Of Heaven” (wip)

Summary: Rick is falling hard and doesn’t know how to deal with it. If he opens up, will it make her stick around or drive her away for good? 100% Richonne.

*This author has many other Richonne fics, I just rec’d the 1st one I fell in love with. If you click on the name it will take you to her fanfiction profile page.

Someone To Watch Over Me” (complete)

Summary: Taking place post the season finale (third) involving Carl and Michonne having a long discussion over what has taken place in Woodbury. This also turns into a moment when Rick realizes that Carl and Michonne have a connection, and perhaps he wants a connection with Michonne as well. This a Richonne fic, not to be confused or connected with my other fic “Clearer”.

“Clearer” (complete)

Summary: A moment between Rick and Michonne after 3x12’s “Clear”, which might be the beginning of something intentional between the both of them. This was directly written after the episode had aired and promptly finished after the season finale because I got inspired once again.

LITERALLY ANYTHING BY SIANCORE

*I’m just going to link her fanfiction page (just click on her name) where all her stories are currently. You cannot go wrong with her stories, she’s so creative and  awesome!

Something Else” (one-shot/complete)

Summary: While spending the afternoon in each other’s company, Michonne and Rick reflect on their place at the prison and how far they’ve come.

*This author has only written one richonne fic to my knowledge and it’s this one obviously but they have also written many Dixonne fanfics if anyone is also interested in that pairing. Great writer.

*Once again read anything by this author and you will not be disappointed. She is awesome, so go show her some love! My favorites include “The Other Woman”, “Jump On It”, “Knock Knock” and “Underneath It All”. I’ve read all her stories and she’s wonderful.

*Ok, by now you should already know the drill. Everything by this author is phenomenal and worth your time. Please read her fics, they are hot, sweet, gripping, and sensual. All her fics will be linked, just click on her name, make yourself comfortable and enjoy all the Richonne goodness! You can begin with her 1st fic titled “ Let Go, Let Flow”, one of my favorites and it’s also completed. She also has some great once shots available and has some wip’s. For example: “Foolish Hearts” is seriously sexy and oh so sweet while “Unpredictable” will leave you with a really good cry in the best possible way.

Apologize” (complete)

Summary: Set at the end of 5.16. Rick comes home after a long night, ready to continue making amends with Michonne and ready for a little something more, but she is even more irate about his reckless behavior now that she knows about Father Gabriel’s betrayal. Michonne wonders if she can continue trusting Rick, which shakes him to the core.

Verbal Communication” (wip)

Summary: The slow pace of life in Alexandria gives Rick and Michonne a chance to step away from what they do best (communicate without saying a word) and open their mouths. It’s touch and go, starting with Rick’s fumbling attempt to ask Michonne to live with him and the kids and worsening when Michonne finally confirms Rick’s long-held suspicion that she had a child.

Guiding Light” (wip)

Summary: There had been nothing heartwarming about that conversation, about her apprehension and fear. But the memory of her voice brought him a degree of comfort just the same.

*Great author who writes Richonne perfectly. Read all her stuff and I believe she has at least two more Richonne stories so I will link her page to all her fics, just click her name. Also, not all but some of her stories involve mature content. And in one, there’s this thing that happens with a ring that I can’t even talk about. Take some deep breaths!

The Richonne Chronicles” (wip/collection of one-shots)

Summary: One-shots focusing on the lovely ship known as Richonne.This will have everything from fluff to angst and everything in between.

*Captures Rick and Michonne perfectly, indivdually and together. I love these stories and I can’t wait more more. I love them all but my favorite would have to be the ones titled “Richonne short” which is 4 parts and “Mellifluous”, something about those two just stayed with me for some reason, but they are all amazing and worth reading. 


******Lyra Verse, Cakebythepound, Siancore and Shipnation are all on tumblr btw. If I forgot someone I apologize and please let me know.


Part 2 and maybe 3 coming soon!
