like i love klaus baudelaire cos hes everything little boys r told NOT to be ….. hes so delicate & emotional, he cries like every 40 pages, he loves reading and learning n hes really proud of that, hes so soft and physically affectionate with the people he loves, he always says what he feels and he doesnt mind being protected ….. these are all traits u find in GIRLS in most childrens books which is why klaus is so important, he teaches little boys that u can be soft AND heroic AND a boy at the same time which is a lesson boys or men for that matter are rarely if ever taught
6 scenes of 18 Chapters of Yajuu Monogatari side story, based on @nawtsoo’s beautiful fic series that has been ruining my life. Fic series link (it’s so good, I cried every time I read it TT_TT Thank you so much for the beautiful fic, Natsu!)
Rocky insists on calling him a Talisman creator but Bin personally thinks “charmer” fits his Very Attractive Face very well
He deals with charms and spells and puts them into objects to protect or to curse or to do stupid things like fly around Rocky’s head
½ of the Lil Shit line
I swear to god he’s such a little shit
Loves pranking the rest of the Coven
Loves charming multiple things to fly around Rocky’s head
And it pisses Rocky off so incredibly much
Once he made Rocky’s metal ladle fly about a metre above his head for about 10 minutes before Rocky glowered at him and threatened to slip a skin colour changing potion into his drink
He put it down pretty quickly
Rocky put the potion in his drink anyway as a lesson
Loves loves loves pranking Sanha
Once he stole a dead beetle from Rocky’s potion ingredients stash and asked Sanha to hold it temporarily while he went to the bathroom
But he added a Vibration spell beforehand and just as he left Sanha alone it started twitching
Sanha screamed so loudly nearly all his hyungs came running
I mean they all laughed but Sanha nearly cried
Once also he charmed several crystals with a Shouting spell
And put them all near places Sanha frequents like the bathroom and the stairs and the kitchen and whatnot
And every time Sanha went near those places it shouted, really loudly, “MJ, JINJIN, CHA EUNWOO, MOONBIN, ROCKY, YOON SANHA, A S T RO” in his ear
And Sanha yelped EVER Y T I M E it was hilarious
It also got Bin a whack on the head by Eunwoo because “even though it’s hilarious it’s not nice to bully a yoUNG CHILD, I HOPE YOU KNOW THAT” yeah
A ridiculously talented charmer Talisman Creator
His mum says it’s because he was born under some star or whatever Bin didn’t really listen because he was too busy doing other things
But when he was 8 his powers started to manifest very very strongly and his parents had to send him away to a stronger coven to train
I mean, his parents run a pretty small charm shop and they’re fairly good with energy and charms
But Bin’s magic became hard to control even for skilled witches like themselves he began dispelling excess energy into inanimate objects
Once Bin’s dad came home to find his pots and pans dancing around the kitchen and Su A crying because of the sheer amount of noise her brother was making
So Bin’s mum sent him away to a family friend
Speaking of which
Trained under Ravi from the VIXX coven
So he joined them when he was 8 and he was the most powerful young witch they’ve ever trained
Which is saying something because all the witches there had dealt with at least 3 apprentices each before
And the last most powerful witch they apprenticed ended up being part of their coven aka Hyuk
So when Bin’s mum brings him in to meet N Bin is really really afraid
He’s eight and he doesn’t want to live far away from his family with these strange tall beings he wants to stay home and he wants to run around with Su A and watch as his blue flows through with her lavender
And so he goes kicking and screaming to the VIXX coven
But when he gets there he sees sparkling, shiny crystals floating around N and he sees how they glow with a soft, pale blue light and his heart immediately aches because he wants to do that
And when N places a small Calming charm in his hand he feels the magic running through it and pulsing into his veins and he’s suddenly giddy with the power and peaceful all at once and he knows he wants to make this happen
And so he pushes up his tiny glasses and tugs on his mum’s hand and tells her quietly that he’ll see her later because he wants to go with Uncle N (cue N squawking indignantly that he is not An Uncle, thank you very much) to learn how to charm things
And his mum just pats his head and tells him with tears in her eyes that she’s proud of him and to behave and that she’ll see him during the weekend
But yeah the VIXX members quickly pick up Bin as part of their group it’s so cute
He’s apprenticed under Ravi but he takes lessons from everyone
I mean, he’s messed up a couple times and sometimes it’s hilarious
See: the time Ravi taught him to make a Waterproof charm and made Bin test it out on himself by dumping a bucketful of water on his head and seeing if he stayed dry
Hint: he didn’t
Which is a story in itself
And sometimes it’s alarming
When Bin thought he made a pretty good Fireproof talisman and threw the charmed pebble into the fire
It was Not Fireproof it was Flammable
RIP VIXX’s fireplace
Loves 2 sleep
As long as he’s not watching over some crystal formation or some energy channel he’s napping
He’s a tired baby please forgive him
Loves 2 eat
Also not kidding
I woke up at 7am to watch Bin’s eating livestream he was adorable he was so painfully boyfriend please kill me
Eunwoo’s often wondered if he’s stored his stomach in a separate talisman or something and that’s why he can eat so much
But no, it’s really because Bin loves all and any food
But it’s also because he uses a shit ton of energy when he seals spells and charms into different talismans so he snacks all the time and eats a lot at meals
He likes to joke it’s him leaving a bit of himself in every talisman he creates but it’s not that much of a joke because it’s kind of true
Also loves to flirt
I’m kidding really he ‘flirts’ with everyone but he doesn’t really mean to do it????
It’s mostly his smile I think he just grins and everyone kind of lowkey falls under his spell
Haha see what I did there
And when he opens his mouth literally everything sounds flirty
(swings by the Seventeen coven to deliver charms to Mingyu)
“hey love, how’re you doing?” @ mingyu
not even a flirty sentence
but he’s grinning at Mingyu and Mingyu has a faint blush spreading across his cheeks
“wow uh Nothing Much” mmhmm very coherent Mingyu
no lie my roommate was once actually so flustered she actually said this out loud then walked into like 3 people
“Oh, and I added an extra crystal in there along with your order, by the way. I had an extra one lying around begging for a Happiness charm.” (adds on a wink) @ Mingyu
Mingyu, in his head: “mmasdhfkljsajskdfhlkasjd”
Bin: (accidentally has to deal with a glowering Wonwoo)
now Wonwoo deals with all the deliveries to the Seventeen coven house in case that one Charmer comes again and tries to flirt with his boy
ok but truth the very first time he went to deliver charms with Ken to learn his delivery route was when he was like 10 and Ken deemed him capable of controlling his powers outdoors
and literally nearly everyone fell in love with this boy
all the old witches cooed over him
even the grumpy potions master over at the Bangtan coven loved Bin he actually smiled at Bin and gave him a piece of candy that Ken checked meticulously for signs of tampering even though Ken’s been going there for forever and he’s never even gotten a smile
literally the most precious child my heart is in pain I love baby Bin
Changes hair colour every 2 or 3 weeks
Usually it’s a side effect of a spell
He’d be using too much energy to do something by accident and the energy would spill over in the atmosphere and dance around the closest living thing
It used to be a plant he kept next to the table and it used to sprout randomly coloured flowers but one day MJ swiped it for a blood ritual and it was never returned to him so
Now the energy hovers around him and sometimes when he straightens up all the excited energy floats around his head and runs through his hair
And you’d just see Bin’s eyes shining in concentration through a blue stream of magic
So sometimes you’ll see him in the morning with deep purple hair and in the afternoon you’ll see him with pastel blue hair
It throws Eunwoo off sometimes but Eunwoo loves all his colours anyway
Sometimes it dances around Eunwoo’s head and all Eunwoo does is lean back from the blue clouds and watch it flow excitedly
And sometimes Bin watches him
Is so so so incredibly soft for a small bean with a beautiful eyesmile it’s not even funny at this point
IT’S SO OBVIOUS TO ALL THE MEMBERS
To everyone but Eunwoo tbh
I mean the moment he met Eunwoo he was Whipped™ for that man
You want to hear the story of how they met ????
Well I guess I gotta
Here we go
Bin was in the middle of training with Hyuk and Hyuk was trying to teach him a Pain hex charm
Which requires a lot of energy by the way since Pain hexes need the charmer to have an evil (? Negative?) intention
But Bin’s always discharged his negative energy by pulling pranks on all his members in the VIXX coven
So it was really difficult for him to pull negative energy from the air
(Hyuk said it’d get easier as it went on because the longer you live the angrier you get at the world but Bin isn’t sure if he wants that to happen)
And so sitting with 10 crystals floating around his head and Hyuk sitting opposite him Bin starts to cast the hex
Fast forward three hours
It’s just the same thing but with more frustration
And more light blue energy floating about his head
And Hyuk falling asleep
Fast forward another 2 hours and Bin’s passed out on the floor with a cut on his forehead because one of the crystals was a bit too zealous in its spinning
And Hyuk’s kneeling over him and smacking his face and he’s not moving at all and Hyuk is panicking slightly and he doesn’t know what to do and
Next thing they know Hongbin’s levitating Bin out the door and Ravi’s in the car and they’re driving as fast as they can to the nearest Healing house
And this was back when Eunwoo was still training with Snuper
So Ravi just bursts into the house and Hongbin’s shuffling Bin into the house and all the Healers look up from different spots around the house at the noise
And the first one downstairs is Eunwoo and he’s snapping out a thin sheet onto a Healing table so Hongbin can set Bin down and everything is happening all at once and way too fast
And Ravi’s talking a mile a minute at Eunwoo about the hex Bin was trying to master and the crystals are circling agitatedly around Bin’s head and Hongbin’s chewing on his lip and trying not to let tears slip out
But the more Ravi explains about the hex the more worried Eunwoo gets about this pale boy that’s getting increasingly weaker as time slips by so Eunwoo stares right into Bin’s face and places a single finger on Bin’s forehead because wow if anything, Eunwoo is sure this boy is too beautiful to die
And instantly a spark of green runs down Eunwoo’s arm and shocks into Bin and there’s a flash of blue as Bin jolts on the table
And suddenly the table is smoking with blue and green magic
It’s so heady it sends the two Charm witches reeling and Hongbin and Ravi have to sit down and the witch on the Healing table beside Bin’s blinks sleepily and starts to sit up
And suddenly Bin’s eyes fly open and meet Eunwoo’s and wo w
Bin has to blink a couple times because wow is he dead already?
He didn’t even get to say goodbye to his parents
Or his sister :(
But ??? he can ask this angel to help him tell them, I guess?
Do witches go to heaven
He’s not sure but he’s pretty sure he’s in heaven because there’s no way this angel belongs in hell
The angel’s talking
And he looks worried?????? The angel keeps blinking and Bin vaguely starts counting the number of beautiful long eyelashes
And suddenly Bin’s ears unclog and he hears Ravi and Hongbin murmuring worriedly and the angel asking him if he’s alright
Oh dear if Ravi and Hongbin are here does it mean they were killed too oh God Bin didn’t mean to do this he never meant for any of this to hap-
And then he hears Eunwoo say, “Oh thank goodness you’ve woken up, we thought you were going to die…”
And it’s the softest thing he’s ever heard wow how can someone have a voice like a windchime????
And the first thing he says is
“Are you real? Like, not an angel?”
And he watches as the not-angel flushes
And instantly even with his forehead stinging and his legs weak he props himself up on his forearms and grins through the pain at Eunwoo
“Well, did it hurt when you fell from Heaven?”
And immediately he feels Ravi roll his eyes and Hongbin smacks him on the back of his head
But Eunwoo is smiling and blushing and his smile is so so so beautiful Bin get stunned into silence once more and obeys Hongbin’s hands as he gets laid down once more on the table
Until he realises that this particular angel’s method of healing is by touch and he flushes
Truly a blessing
I guess you could say
He was touched by an angel
Please shoot me
(dabs) i’m nearly done with finals i’ve got 2 more papers on thursday and friday then i’ll write something short about how Eunwoo recruited Bin into Astro (dabs again)
So, I’ve been thinking about organizing my recs by categorizing the fics by theme. I’ve also thought of trying to stick to less known fics and well… I decided to start with my favorite trope ever: misunderstandings.
Author’s summary: Established mystrade. When Mycroft finds Greg smiling and looking flirtatious with a man who is clearly an ex-boyfriend, he draws the obvious conclusion. Greg, however, might have a thing or two to say about that.
Some notes: Insecure!Mycroft, Greg is super sweet, everything hurts but it’s lovely.
Author’s summary: After being away for two years, Sherlock bursts back into John’s life on that fateful night, as John is about to propose to his girlfriend. Everything is different now; but Sherlock wants John back.
Some notes: Post Reichenbach fic, Mary isn’t nice.
Author’s summary: Leaving John in Mycroft’s care was probably a misstep. He has no other choice though. But it quickly becomes one of the biggest mistakes of his life when Sherlock realizes that his brother’s dating again.
Some notes:Jealous!Sherlock, brotherly bickering, they’re all idiots.
Author’s summary: Prince John is a well-travelled man of the world, and yet even he is taken aback when a beautiful merman is delivered to the doorstep of the castle. Despite the helpless creature’s fear of him, John resolves to be the best host he can be for his adorable new guest.
Some notes: merlock, so very painful at parts, pining!Sherlock and happy ending.
Author’s summary: “After Mary’s death, John moves back into Baker Street, but is still upset at the loss of his wife and child. Eventually, he and Sherlock stumble into a sort of relationship, but it’s more physical than anything and they don’t talk about it.
They especially don’t talk during sex.
If they are going to have sex, Sherlock notices the signs hours beforehand, and he prepares carefully. The lights are off, they’re under the covers, he prepares himself using lots of lube so he can make it feel as much like a woman as he can, and he doesn’t let himself make any noise so that, if John wishes, he can pretend that he’s still with Mary.”

My daughter was murdered 6 years ago. I cried when reading about your new book particularly "for every murder victim, the loved ones are left to cope with the after-effects of what is undoubtedly the most difficult period in their lives. As the saying goes, grief is love that has no home." This just hits so close to home and you have just put all of my feelings into one small sentence. I think it's great you have written a book about a topic so many people are so afraid of. Thank you.
I offer my utmost condolences. I can’t even begin to imagine that. I really am sorry for your loss. Speaking to parents in the same predicament as yourself, I acknowledged that their feelings resonated within that quote.
It’s certainly a touchy and heartbreaking subject but when it comes to cold cases, public knowledge is key. If people don’t hear about these atrocious unsolved cases then there’s no chance they’ll ever be solved. When the case goes cold and the children’s photograph isn’t in the news anymore, it’s out of mind and I don’t agree with that.
Unsolved murders are horrific enough but the unsolved murder of a child elicits a certain visceral emotion. They are the purest of the pure and their killers don’t deserve to evade justice. They don’t deserve to fade into obscurity and their stories deserve to be known. How else will they be solved?
Eva rjfjdksksks LISTEN to me I WOULD DIE FOR Y&B HARRY OKAY. just … ok look at the start he’s kind of an arse but he’s just very misunderstood and he has incredibly low self esteem and is !! so terribly self destructive !! that legit by the end of the first half all I wanted to do was wrap him up and give him a cuddle :(( y&b harry DOESN’T THINK HE DESERVES ANYTHING BETTER THAN SHITTY ONE NIGHT STANDS BUT HE DOES !!!!!!!

I’ve been reading @decembercamiecherries ‘s “Words That Water Flowers“ fanfic and i just love it so much (Q__Q (yeah, like every other of her fanfic that i read//cries). Her writing is so good I can feel the character’s feelings. I know there’s quite a number of fanarts already, but i’ve gotten this far at drawing it, I might as well just post it (TvT.
I think shawol's are pretty much going to feel uneasy until we see all of them together and happy and smiling with each other. We need ourselves that ot5!
Calling a universal prayer circle for Shawols because it looks like we’re gonna have to be in this for the long haul. I’d say “patience little grasshoppers” but we’ve been pretty patient. gosh….the last ot5 event was smtown back in mid July. But…we’ve been in longer droughts so i think we can manage! we kind of have to. The true Shawols are gonna come out of this at the end shining almost brighter than SHINee themselves because having the strength to stick around in this mess…anyway, i think that whenever SHINee do come back, we’re gonna cherish it a lot more than we would’ve before. It’s gonna make an incredibly big impact… i mean it’s just gonna mean so much more than just being that 10th anniversary album. like if we weren’t emo already over that….jfc if i wasn’t a Shawol i wouldn’t want to be around Shawols whenever SHINee make their ot5 comeback.
Anyway, my point is that i don’t think we should worry too much. It’s inevitable that we feel sad and deprived and sad, but there’s nothing we can do but wait at this point! And like…to my MVPs man…my heart goes out to each and every one of you every single day. One of my best friends is an MVP and i see the wear. Hell, i get fucking emo whenever jjong goes a day without posting on Instagram! BUT AT LEAST I STILL HAVE THAT. like not to put salt into an open wound, but you guys are hanging on by sheer will, and really you’re the backbone of the fandom. Thank you for loving Jinki and sticking with him and crying for his return. You guys are the unsung heroes.
time Theo cried, he curled in a ball, wrapped up in himself, like he
wanted to turn into something smaller than he was, until he
disappeared. His crying was quiet and silent, simply tears streaking
down his cheeks, as he was terrified of uttering any sound, the tears
pooling on his chin until they fell on his fisted hands, curled on
the fabric of his clothes.
Blaise hated the fact he cried like he should be ashamed of doing so,
but he understood, nevertheless. He knew they were raised differently
in more than one way. He was raised by the most emotional, raw and
strongest woman, his mother; but Theo was taught that tears equalled
weaknesses and the real men didn’t cry rubbish,
and with punishments that went beyond reason when tears finally
spilled down Theo’s cheeks.
