and have it scented

Did someone say SUPERBLOOM??

The gardens are going completely nuts right now.  So many blooms, so much color, so many scents. Stop by if you have a chance. We haven’t seen a bloom like this in years.

Just discovered your blog, so if this was already asked my bad! Can you do MTMTE bots (your choice) telling their human s/o "I love you" and mean it for the first time scenario? Like what are they doing that makes them say it, do they just blurt it out, do they mumble it under their breath, or do they run for the hills cause they're so embarrassed haha thanks!

I really only do one bot for a scenario (ficlet) I hope you like Whirl ^3^

           The good thing about the Lost Light’s medbay is that it’s not like the hospitals on earth. Not that it’s particularly pleasant, but it doesn’t have the same stale scent and harsh lighting that sets you on edge.

           You go to scratch your arm and groan when you hit your cast. This itch is going to bother you all day. ‘Well,’ you think. ‘At least I wasn’t killed.’

           You very well almost were. While the thought of space pirates may be cool in theory, they’re significantly less cool to deal with. You don’t remember much now with the pain medicine clogging your brain, but you remember the terror you felt as you were told to hide. You remember the excruciating pain of being knocked aside by a hand twice as large as you. And… You remember Whirl; his garbled shouts, the hellfire that burned in his optics as he blew your assailant into a mangled mess.

           After that, you don’t remember anything.

           There’s a crash outside the curtain around your medberth. You heart jumps- are the pirates back?- but then there’s Whirl’s voice over the shuffling of pedes and Ratchet’s gruff allowance of five minutes.

           Whirl pokes his head through the curtain. You pat the space next to you, giving a small smile, and he plops down on the berth. He looks you sternly up and down, lingering on the bump on your head and your broken arm. Squirming, you wonder if this is what it would feel like to be under Perceptor’s microscope.

           “Hey,” says Whirl.

           “Hey,” you return, then add hastily. “Thank you… for saving me.”

           “I…” His optics shutters as he trails off. It focuses on you, then anywhere but you, and then zeroes in on you again. Slooooowly, he moves a claw to your face, gently holding it against your cheek but not pressing.

           You lean into his touch.

           “I love you,” Whirl says. “Isn’t that stupid?”

           You smile. “You know what else is stupid? I love you, too.”

it’s been a long enough time since kira has replaced kosaku, and hayato doesn’t have any hard evidence yet, but he’s absolutely certain that the man sitting at the dining room table is not his father

it’s been bothering him for a while. something subtly off. it’s not like the mushrooms, or the shoe thing. when he’s sitting down and trying to eat he keeps getting distracted by something so minuscule that he’s sure he’s just making it up at first.

on a particularly lazy night, where his guard has only somewhat dropped against the man eating at the table, he finally notices it. a scent. a peculiar one, one that may have made sense if there had been any meat on the table that night. but there was none.

and yet, the thin, faint stench of rot and blood is unmistakably coming from that man’s hands.

  • favorite scent. 

i have three!! the first being rain because i bless the rains down in africa i’m basic as hell and in arizona there’s hardly any rain but when there is it’s Everywhere and it’s such a fresh scent i love it. the second is my conditioner!! after some googling it is moroccan rose and passion fruit nectar and the third is vanilla!! particularly my gf’s perfume uwu 

  • day or night and why.

uhhh i wanna say night but i’m so scared of ghosts so i’ll say day to be safe. probably because i am a sun lesbian ™ and i’m more willing to be social in the daytime 

  • who is your best friend and how did you meet.

since i have two i’ll go in order from when we met. i met @helenekuragina first when i was about 14 and we met through the rp community in the days when ouat was actually a good show. i literally messaged her asking her to rp and 3 years later Here We Are. i met @andreibolkonsky a little after taking a break from rp and was introduced to her by alyssa through a group skype chat !! i love them both dearly and would do anything for them and u can quote me on that

  • do you believe in true love.

my leo ass? absolutely.

  • what was your last dream about.

i have a bad habit of waking up and going back to sleep so i remember like shards of different dreams. what i remember from last night is: me singing in front of like a crowd of people, physically fighting with someone, and talking to my sister. since i usually have horror dreams / nightmares this is p good. 

  • have you been in love.

i’m a little afraid of saying yes in fear of being a Naive Teenager but i really do think so and with @spirithealer <3 

  • how do you fall asleep.  

one of two ways.  1) listening to someone talk on youtube/netflix and under a pile of blankets and 2 fans 2) at 7 am, passing out with all my blankets kicked off the bed

Sharing Rooms

Remember how over the years Louis and Harry sharing dressing rooms has turned out to be an actual fact and not some fan scripted illusion ???

Lets see, starting from that time when nick and his crew went to see one direction.

According to Nick and Tina, harry’s dressing room- Dark in there, black sheets over the walls, scented candles, plush dark sofas, dark velvets and house plants !!!!

So, its dark in here, the walls have black sheets, i see scented candles and plush dark sofas BASICALLY A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT WORLD !!!

Hence harry’s dressing room.

Oh there’s that HOUSE PLANT IN THE BACK !!!! And there’s LOUIS too in the room.

With his best friend’s father-in-law …and his football shirt hanging. ( *in harry’s dressing room*)  

Louis also did shoot a video in *harry’s dressing room*

Lets focus on this picture posted by their stylist, where both harry and louis’ clothes and shoes are kept side by side .

And here “L and H” sitting in all its glory !!

Now, the time in 2015 when it seemed like Larry were gonna come out and we had all these new facts and information given to us, one that adds to this “sharing the dressing room” is the information given by the tour rider that even the media picked up on.

Unrealitytv !!!

Sugarscape !!!

Hollywood life !!!

In conclusion - Louis and Harry shared the dressing room …resting on those dark sofas enjoying those scented candles they fought over which house plant to get.

someday kaz will learn to hold inej when she needs comfort. on these days his armor is gone and it feels like his world is tipping like the sickboat lowering him back into the reaper’s barge. but to keep from falling in he focuses on the unique scent of her hair, warm touch of her skin, and steady rhythm of her heart. and she’d whisper things like “you’re okay, kaz” and he’d counter with “you’re safe, inej” and they know in each other’s arms it’s all true. with their bodies mesh together they learn it’s comforting to match their breathing patterns so they’d find a synchronous pace that soothes them both. and once he relaxes, she’d finally fold her arms around his back and hold him just as tight. to him it’ll feel like he’s encased in a new type of armor. one that doesn’t conceal his troubles but gives him strength to fight them—and maybe he doesn’t realize until those moments he needs comfort too.

If you were a dragon, what would your treasure be made of? What would you be obsessively hoarding? For me it’d be art supplies and various dinosaur items. Tell me what your hoard would be in the comments or in the tags!

No matter the results of the election, I will always have:

•cozy sweaters
•my favorite tv show
•my pets
•scented candles
•warm baths on cold nights
•a fresh cup of coffee/tea
•sunsets
•that feeling when I get the perfect picture
•my favorite book
•autumn
•the smell of fresh baked cookies
•the freedom to laugh
•wearing my favorite outfit and feeling great in it
•dogs and cats
•Christmas morning
•my bed and blankets
•the opportunity to make people happy

How to Work Smart

1. Make the most of those little slots of time – a free fifteen minutes here and there. You can accomplish a lot in those extra lost minutes.

2. Make your work place comfortable and inviting. For example, have an inspiring bookshelf, light a scented candle, put up a few crazy, fun photographs.

3. Make every effort to enjoy the journey – and remind yourself of the arrival fallacy (arriving at your goal is usually a letdown, and doesn’t bring the joy we thought it would bring.)

. Don’t be afraid of criticism as it can help you to learn and grow. Dreading it too much creates anxiety which them prevents you from producing your best.

5. Recognise that we rarely feel happy when we’re working as we’re bound to struggle with incompetence, failure, frustration and feeling that we don’t know what to do. However, they are only a part of the total picture, and completing a project leads to pride and confidence.

Ways To Put A Little To Sleep

1. Back rubs and neck kisses (Gently rub your littles back and kiss their neck until they relax and go to sleep

2. Bedtime story (read to your little and choose a book suitable for your littles age. For example, if they’re between 2-6 read a children book (Winnie The Pooh) If there between 7-13 maybe something like a chapter of Harry Potter)

3. Put on lullaby (It’s easy to go on youtube and search up lullabies for babies and children. They are super relaxing and will soothe your little as they fall asleep)

4. Give your little a bath (The warm water will relax them and help them fall asleep easier, most people also fall asleep easier if they feel clean. Put some nice scented bubble bath soap into the bath water and clean your little!)

 5. Spray a fragrance in the room (If you have relaxing scented bottle Febreze spray in into the air of the room you little is sleeping in. Choose something like peppermint, spearmint, or lavender to help calm your little and keep them stress-free.) 

6. Dress your little up! (It’s not what you think, I promise, or well… maybe it is, anyway. Dress your little up in cute jammies so that they feel happy and special before they good to be, this will keep them in a good mood while they sleep and will ensure good dreams)

7. Keep the room cool (keeps your littles room cool and bundle them in blankies, everyone likes it when the room is just at the right temperature, keep the room near 65-70 degrees)

8. Lights out (Keep the room dark, maybe put a nightlight in if necessary)

9.  Paci! (Give your little their pacifier to suck on during the night, it should keep them quiet and soothe them to sleep)

10. Sleep withy your little! (Give them a sense of protection while they sleep. Holding your little close and rocking them gently to help them fall asleep are great tips!)
