and i could not find a way to fix it

The final scene in Monster Bash addressed what we all thought, that Star was rushing things too much in this half of season. She had all the best intentions, obviously, but still didn’t stop to think, to plan, for a moment - and Eclipsa’s influence, despite how little they talked together so far, didn’t help for sure. As soon as Star got over her nasty obsession heartache for Marco’s smell she seemingly set onto changing her life for good. Become a better princess, improve Mewni. Maybe she didn’t stop even for a moment because she feared she might have relapsed into her old habits of leaving things unfinished, running away at the first difficulty, and that’s why she was annoyed by Marco’s return at first in Lint Catcher: Not because she didn’t want him back in her life, but because she was scared of what it could have lead to (this obviously turned out not to be the case, since if anything Marco is the most supportive person she has).

Could this “youthful rashness” apply to Tomstar as well, though? In Club Snubbed Star was initially clear on what she’d have liked Tom to be: a friend. But she was quick, even too quick, to change idea in the following episode, as soon as she saw in him a “kindred spirit”, someone who was going through a similar situation of great changes (plus great duties from being a royal heir). 

Could the accelerated pace at which Tomstar happened be blamed on the writers wanting to find a quick and easy way to add drama to the mix, or (and I truly hope it’s this second case) it was all part of Star “rushing things to a fault” new style of life? Tom’s behavior and priorities didn’t match Star’s ones in Monster Bash, but this got fixed before the end of the episode, making up for some good growth moments for Star. The opposite didn’t get addressed further, though: Star’s priorities and expectations in their relationship didn’t seem to match Tom’s ones, and I don’t think this can be blamed on how busy with the planning she was. While Tom wanted to kiss, Star reacted in a playful, almost childish way.

Could this be Star’s version of the events addressed in Sophomore Slump? Just like Marco couldn’t put full effort into his relationship with Jackie because part of his heart was always with Star (because let’s be real here, the issues where there way before The Battle For Mewni, even when Star was still living on Earth), Star can’t be fully invested in her relationship with Tom not only because she was too busy with Mewni, but because that’s not what she truly wants, just what she thought she needed. 


Is it possible that just like Star tried to change Mewni overnight, just to realize that’s not as easy as it seems, she might have also tried to change her feelings for Marco way too quickly for her own good?

Interviewing your Crystals

This is a fairly simple spread that I came up with after buying some new crystals and not really knowing what to do with them. This is just one of the many ways you can get to know your crystals and find out how to put them to good use!

1. What are your energies?
I consider this to explain the overall ‘personality’ of the crystal. If you aren’t great at sensing energy, or can’t get a fix on the energy, this could help you.

2. What can you heal/cleanse?
So many people use crystals for healing and cleansing themselves, spaces, etc. Consider this the form of cleaning your crystal is best at.

3. In what ways can you fit into my practice?
There are so many hundreds of ways to use crystals! If you like to have specific crystals for specific things, this will help a lot.

4. What lessons can be learned from you?
Meditating and scrying with crystals can show you many things, and sometimes there are lessons to be learned. There might be a specific message this crystal wishes to get across. 

As an added note, you can also use the first card to figure out what the crystal’s associations might be (that is if you’re like me and don’t always feel like common crystal associations fit 100% of the time).

Feel free to tag me or let me know how this spread works! It worked pretty well for me, and I’d love to see what other people think!!!

Oh, it’s not your job? It is now.

This is a long story.

Intro and Backstory

My dad was a mechanic for 20+ years, and for as long as I can remember, I drove him nuts because I would go around the house with a screw driver he left out and take everything apart because I wanted to see how it work. As I grew older I developed an affinity towards computers and electronics, which led me to be “that kid” in High School who changed his grades, crashed the school districts servers, and used the NETSEND command with great success. I would spend my weekends either with my grandparents and uncle working on science projects or dragging my dad outside to help me fix my car (which consisted of him telling me that he would help once I got it taken apart). Those “figure it out” lessons were the probably the greatest gift he could’ve given me growing up.

I joined the US Army in 2004 and went into communications or “commo” for short (25U) where I managed to go from PVT (E1) when I joined to SGT (E5) by the time I returned from my deployment in 2006. After returning home, I was subsequently transferred from a Light Infantry Unit (walking everywhere) to a Mechanized Infantry Unit (Riding in an armored vehicle everywhere) and placed in charge of the Battalion Commo Shop as the current person running the commo shop was scheduled to retire in a few months and I was the only other NCO. This is where things got interesting and my Commo vs. Mechanics ProRevenge story starts…

Gil’s Story Is My Nightmare

You know, it normally takes weeks if not months for my feelings to settle on a subject relating to fiction. Like, my first time through, it’ll wash over me, I’ll consider it a while, and then, eventually, I’ll come to a conclusion.

But Gil’s story rubbed me wrong on first run, and I easily figured out why.

Gil’s story is my nightmare as a gay man.

I know I’m not the first to sum it up, but I am SO frustrated and pissed off by this (and Mass Effect Andromeda’s handling of M/M relationships in general), I need to work it out of my system.

You, thinking that Mom is gone and that Cas is gone and that Jack can’t be saved…

Dean, after everything we’ve gone through, we just lost people we love, people who have been in our lives for a long time, everything’s upside down, I get it. But we’ve been down before, I mean rock bottom. 

And we find a way. We fix it, because that’s what we do. 

And Jack wants to do the right thing. He’s scared to death of who he is, and he’s scared of you. 

Anyone else got the tiny feeling that Dean didn’t really believe in what Sam said? He even put on his black mourning jacket just in time for this conversation… and he just didn’t react, at all. Before, when they talked about Jack - that he could do. He had a few snide remarks about that. But as soon as Sam talks about Mom and Cas (note that Sam talks about his Mom first, naturally, and for him this is “just” another thing that they’ve been through, not the loss of everything) Dean shuts down completely (like, his mouth visibly clicks) and just… sits there, letting the speech wash over him. 

The knocking from Donatello was very convenient there, just saying. Because Dean certainly had nothing to reply to this… how could he, when he’s sure that there’s nothing to save and he’s just done with everything?

This is fine

‘Hmm’ 

Draco rolled on his sheets, his skin warm because of the covers and the soft light shining through his bedside window.

It was good, those new sheets, that new bedroom. The purple curtains weren’t something he would’ve picked himself but being an eighth year came with its advantages and disadvantages.

He turned again, his eyes still closed. Having his own room at Hogwarts was something he would never have thought could be so great. The silence, the privacy, being able to come and go whenever he wanted. Well, not that he could wander around past curfew but even if he did no one would know.

Draco finally opened his eyes, the sunlight strangely bright for that time of-

‘Fuck’

Draco launched himself off the covers, his legs still tangled in the sheets making him tumble straight to the floor. He cursed again, louder this time, but who cares. He was alone in his room, no one to wake up and, oh well, no one to wake him up either.

So he was late, even though he was sure he’d set up his wand to wake him up.

Great, now his morning had everything to be even shinier than normal. He hated getting up late and had managed just fine to arrive to classes in time until now. He hated it because being late meant receiving unwanted attention from professors who already despised him and classmates who wanted him dead. Potter was usually the one to burst into classes after it’d already begun but all he always got for that were welcoming smiles and good mornings.

Draco grabbed the first pair of black trousers he spotted near his nightstand, putting them on while searching for his belt. He wrapped his green and silver tie loosely around his neck, his black shirt still completely unbuttoned. Draco cast a quick cleaning spell on his mouth, hurriedly heading for the door with shoes in one hand and bag in the other. The common room was most definitely empty so he would just finish getting ready-

Ouch!

A loud thud caught Draco’s attention, wand instantly in hand as an instinct. He should have expected, should have exhaled, turned on his heel and darted out of there because he knew he was just going to be even later now.

But how in Merlin’s name could he turn around on a Potter still in his boxers, black boxers and a Gryffindor tie hanging around his neck like the bloody corridor was an extension of his room. Potter looked up, his cheeks red and an apologetic smile on his face, something that only contributed to unbalance Draco more.

The blond was gaping, his own blood rushing to his cheeks because his eyes couldn’t stay on Potter’s ugly glasses, they had to aknowledge his shoulders, covered in tiny brown freckles; scan his chest and his stomach- fuck, Potter had abs, and his hips, Draco’s eyes could trace his V line…

He froze, closing his eyes like that was the only way he knew how to stop unashamedly maping the Gryffindor’s body.

He opened them when his breathing had evened out to find Potter doing the exact same thing he’d done.

‘I- I’m late’ Draco blurted out, startling Potter who seemed to be unaware of what he was doing.

'Yeah, me too’ His green eyes fixed on something above Draco’s head.

'You’re always late, this isn’t- ’

'What happened to your hair?’ Potter took a step towards him, his shame of being half naked completely forgotten. Draco’s wand remained firmly secured in his hand, though he doubted he’d have the will to point it at Potter even if he had to.

Merlin, he was… hot. That was the word, there was no way he could lie about that. Draco was eighteen and gay and Potter was eighteen and hot and- and so Potter. He should turn around and run the fuck away from there, that corridor was too small for two people to stand at a safe distance and Potter didn’t seem to even want to stand at a safe distance.

He was still looking at Draco’s hair like it was made of gold.

'I didn’t have time to comb it’

Draco looked at Potter’s head, wondering for a second if the Gryffindor had ever brushed his hair.

The dark brown locks curled chaotically around the edges, falling on his forehead and almost covering the scar. His hair was longer than Draco had ever seen it, probably longer than when they were fourteen and Draco first experienced how it was like to develop a crush on someone.

When Potter lowered his eyes Draco could see only thin rings of green around dilated pupils.

'Why would you comb it?’

There, he knew Potter had never brushed his hair. That was be the best opportunity to mock him about it, Draco just needed to open his mouth and-

Warm fingers pushed Draco’s locks away from his eyes, his mouth already open but his mind suddenly blank. Potter was so close Draco had to tip his head slightly down to look at him. His fingers ran through the strands, pressing lightly against his scalp. Draco’s breathing became shallow, his whole body tingling with the sudden proximity.

'I- I need to go’ Draco’s hand reached for his bag as fast as he could. He darted past a surprised Potter on his way to the stairs, Potter’s fingers that were tangled in Draco’s hair falling to his pale neck, touching it lightly for a second.

He wanted to stay, fuck, all he wanted to do was stay. That was the main reason he should go immediately because if he felt Potter’s warmth against his skin for another minute he wouldn’t be able to hold back.

When Draco turned around to catch a last glimpse of Potter, green eyes met grey. He gulped, turning on his heel and heading towards their common room.

Despite being so late Draco decided to keep a slow pace. He closed his eyes for a second, trying to keep in his memory the feeling of Harry’s fingers against his neck.

***

Draco opened his eyes the next morning to find, fortunately, that he was on time.

He sighed, images of the previous day flashing through his mind. He got up, shaking that weird feeling away, and set out for his trunk.

This time Draco decided to go with his best green silk shirt and some tight black trousers - he was in a good mood after all - paired with a silver tie. He was about to grab his bag when Draco remembered he hadn’t combed his hair again, darting his eyes to the mirror hanging on his door.

It looked… messy, but maybe not in a bad way. He ran his fingers through it, pushing the strands back and watching as a few fell on his forehead. Okay, he could try that. His father would totally reprimand him if he knew but Draco decided to go for it anyway.

He closed the door behind him, his eyes already searching for that door opposite his. Potter’s room.

It was locked and no movement could be heard from outside.

Late again, he thought to himself, lingering on the first step of the circular stair. He looked back again, waiting for something he didn’t quite know. No sound, nothing.

He’s definitely going to be late.

Fuck, Draco looked at his pocket watch, confirming that if he turned around now he’d get exactly on time for his first class of the day.

He could knock, a small voice that sounded a lot like his mother’s resonated inside his head.

Draco looked around, checking if he was in fact alone before darting towards Potter’s door, knocking twice. He waited a bit, knocked again. No response.

Maybe he’s not in there, he thought.

Maybe he’s not feeling well, his other inner voice said.

Draco didn’t care, he should just go. But his hand was already on the door knob, twisting it. It clicked, easily letting Draco in despite a red alarm screaming inside his head.

'Potter?’ His voice was low but in the quiet room it sounded much louder to his ears.

The curtains of the only bed in the room were closed, but Draco could immediately tell Potter was there. His deep breathing told Draco that the Gryffindor was sound asleep, the sunrays making his silhouette distinguishable through the curtains.

The alarms were louder now but Draco couldn’t walk away anymore.

He pulled the curtains slowly.

'Potter, you’re- ’

Fuck.

Potter was on his back, a soft blanket covering one of his legs and his waist in a way Draco could see he had nothing beneath it. He was naked, completely naked under that thin layer of cotton.

Draco’s fingertips were tingling, his throat suddenly dry. He wanted to touch, but Merlin he couldn’t even afford to think that.

'Potter, wake up’ he spoke louder this time and Potter all but groaned in his sleep. Draco felt something boiling inside him, anger and lust mixed together.

'Potter, wake up!’ His hand reached for Potter’s shoulder, shaking him before he could stop himself.

A strong grip in his hand pulled him forward and before Draco knew what was happening he found shimself underneath Potter who had his wand pointed at Draco’s throat, a dangerous look on his face.

'Malfoy, what… Fuck, what are you doing here?’

Potter lowered his wand without a second thought, placing it on the nightstand, his expression turning into one of confusion.

Draco stood frozen, his mouth hanging open because the second Potter recognized him all the bastard did was relax, sitting on top of Draco’s thighs like that was the most obvious thing to do when you find your enemy inside your room.

And Draco could feel it. Feel it against his stomach even though the blanket was preventing him from actually seeing it. He darted his eyes up the moment he realized he was staring at it to find Potter already looking at him. He was blushing, green eyes wide open like he’d just realized the strange position they were in.

The thing was, Potter didn’t move, not off Draco at least.

'We’re late,’ Draco’s voice was hoarse when he spoke.

Potter rolled his eyes to what he judged useless information.

'Are those the only words you know?’

That ungrateful git. Draco tried to push him away, shifting his thighs in a way that forced Potter to grab onto something to avoid falling off his own bed. He obviously chose to grab onto Draco’s shirt, tearing up two buttons with the force of his grip. Draco gasped, anger boiling deep inside him. That was his abosolutely favorite shirt and now it was ruined. He was about to punch Potter when something poked him hard on his inner thigh, right beside his own crotch.

Something. Not only something, it seemed.

Draco’s eyes found Harry’s.

'Potter?’ His voice came out weaker than he intended it to.

So Potter had an erection. He was hard, rocking hard right on top of Draco. And naked too. For Merlin’s sake, that wasn’t even the problem.

'Ah… Malfoy?’ Potter looked down and back up at Draco. He smirked, shifting again.

The problem was Draco was hard too.

Draco was hard with a very naked ass sitting on top of him to feel it.

Draco’s cheeks were on fire, his hands griping the sheets so hard his knuckles were white already.

This time he had no way out. Potter had that smirk all over his face and kept moving on top of him, like- like he was adjusting himself… Oh God, Potter’s cock was right there, heavy and hot against his stomach.

'Potter, I… we need to- Oh fuck’ Draco’s head hit the matress, his eyes shutting close as Potter thrust his hips forward.

'Do you really want to leave?’ He was panting, each thrust causing the blanket to slid even lower on his hips. Draco could see hair right below his navel now. Draco’s hands must have left the sheets at some point because now they were grabbing Potter’s thighs with the same intensity.

Leave? He couldn’t leave.

'I hate you’ Draco thrust back, the blanket finally sliding to the floor.

Potter moaned, his smirk turning into a grin. Merlin, he was so hot.

Potter’s hands slid from Draco’s torso to his biceps, forcing his arms above his head. He hold them there, something possessive shining in his eyes.

'Are you sure?’

One of his hands reached his wand and before Draco could even worry about it his clothes were gone. He moaned and Potter moaned, loud, needy.

Because the side of Draco’s cock was pressed against Harry’s ass, rubbing against his hole. It was too much, too suddenly.

'Potter… Fuck this is- ’

Draco flipped them, all his control gone. He stared Potter down, taking in all of it, from his swollen cock to his even messier than normal hair, his green eyes filled with lust and fixed on Draco, his hands, warm and strong roaming all over him.

'How did this happen?’ Potter whispered and Draco froze. Really, how did that happen? They were enemies, they hated each other. He was almost sure that Potter wasn’t gay and now they were there-

Potter smashed their mouths together, kissing hungrily like Draco had never been kissed before. They backed away for air, Draco resting his forehead on Potter’s.

'You don’t really hate me’ Potter said, still trying to control his breathing.

'I do’ Draco bit his shoulder, leaving a red mark there.

'You don’t’ Potter’s grip on his jaw was strong, forcing their eyes to meet again. Everything seemed to change, the atmosphere, the tension between them.

'You’re a nightmare’ Draco whispered against his lips.

'You’re a wet dream’ Harry said back, smirking.

Draco didn’t hate him. He had realized that only after the war but now he knew he probably had never hated Harry Potter.

When he bent down to press their lips together, it wasn’t rushed. They kissed slowly, tasting one another. It was sensual, deeper than before. Potter’s hands were on his hair, his fingers threading through the strands and pulling Draco towards him. They parted again but Potter kept placing soft kisses on Draco’s lips, again and again.

'Why do you do this?’ Draco’s eyes were still closed, his mouth brushing Potter’s as he spoke. Every nerve on his body was aware of it’s surroundings. Draco wanted to scream, stop the time because Potter made him feel like he was eleven all over again, powerless but a lot braver than he was now at eighteen.

Potter moved so he could speak into his ear, hands still on his hair.

'Draco, this is fine’ his words were softer than the ones ringing inside Draco’s head that sounded so much like his father’s. 'Scared, Malfoy?’

There it was, Malfoy and Potter, always Malfoy and Potter. Except Draco wanted this new thing now, because Potter was right. If he didn’t give a shit for the past Draco wouldn’t either.

'I don’t hate you’ he whispered, afraid the words would get stuck in his throat.

It was like an immense weight he didn’t know he was carrying was lifted from his shoulders.

'I don’t hate you, Harry’ he said it again, louder. They kissed one more time. 'Harry’ and again. 'I want to- ah, I want to fuck you, Harry’ the way the name rolled on his tongue was addictive. And everytime he said it, Harry Harry Harry, the boy beneath him would shudder, moan, kiss him again.

'Draco’ his fingers running through his hair. 'Draco’.

Draco backed away, turned Harry on his stomach and kissed his nape.

He kissed his shoulder blades, Draco kissed his spine.

Open mouthed kisses all the way down to his lower back, Harry arched to his touch.

His hands ran on Harry’s sides, one of them reaching Harry’s neck and holding him there possessively.

'You can… you can just…’ Harry turned his head to the side, his hands pushing Draco’s thighs towards him desperately.

'I need to- ’

'I did it yesterday’ Harry’s voice was hoarse and the words came out rushed. 'After we met, I…’

'You were thinking of me…’ Draco kissed the shell of his ear, his hips trembling with need.

'I want you inside, Draco’ Harry fingers dig in his thighs and Draco shuddered, a moan escaping his lips.

Draco reached for his wand, a quick spell smearing his fingers with lube. He found Harry’s hole, tried one finger and found it in fact loose already. Harry bucked against it underneath him. Fuck, he wanted to eat him up, take him hard. He smeared his swollen cock with the lube, aligning himself.

Harry arched his back again when Draco buried himself inside him, his hips hitting Harry’s ass.

'Draco- fuck, please… Draco please

It was so tight, fuck, so hot inside him and the sounds. Harry kept moaning, bucking against him, begging.

'You’re so… Harry, Harry fuck’ Harry was shaking beneath him, his head turning from side to side, eyes closed and mouth open. Draco pounded hard inside him, as fast as he could.

It was desperate, intense, too much. They were Malfoy and Potter and Draco and Harry. And Draco wanted all that, he needed Harry Potter to remember what it was like to feel that fire inside him.

Harry came with his ass up and face pressed against the pillow that muffled his scream. He came with Draco’s cum filling him up, Draco digging his nails on his sides and screaming his name.

When he let his body crash beside Harry, Draco felt different.

'Do you hate me?’ Harry’s playful tone was gone.

'No’

'Are you s-’

Draco pressed his hand on Harry’s mouth, shutting him up immediately.

'You’re a Gryffindor, an arrogant prick with a hero complex. You’re loud and impulsive. Still, I don’t hate you, okay?’

When Draco removed his hand Harry had a frown on his face.

'What does that even mean?’

Draco rolled his eyes, reaching out for Harry’s arm. He ran his fingers there, tracing invisible patterns as he spoke. He liked to touch Harry, he liked it quite a lot.

'It means this is fine, doesn’t it?’

Harry closed his eyes, a small smile playing on his lips.

'Draco’

There, that was why he felt different. Harry made his name sound like something… special.

'Yeah?’

'Will you wake me up tomorrow too?’

He snorted, hitting Harry with the pillow square in the face.

'No’

'What, why not?’ Harry gave him an indignant look that only made Draco laugh even harder.

'I can’t miss another class because of you’

Harry gave him a peck on the lips, startling him. It was so sweet he couldn’t help the blushing creeping up his face.

'Then I’ll wake up before you, Malfoy’ he gave him another peck, the well known challenging look in his eyes.

Draco smiled, realizing Malfoy and Potter could be as nice as Draco and Harry if he got to have him by his side.

“This is [Y/N],” you answered cheerfully into your phone.

“Hey kid,” you recognized your agent’s voice. “Marvel wants you to come in and do a screen test for Gwen Stacy tomorrow.”

Your jaw dropped, and you managed to stutter out a few words. “I–they–did I get the part?”

Say that again; H.S.

“So how did your date turn out the other night?” Harry appears into my side view, still buttoning up his crisp, ironed-by-me chemise as he walks to stop beside me. I turn on my heel, bumping my hip into the marble countertop as I let a humourless chuckle flow past my lips.

“Disastrous. Catastrophic. I-never-ran-so-fast-in-my-life-short.” I laugh loudly, handing Harry the utensils for his dinner in a few hours. I pull on his shirt near his shoulder to straighten it before I lightly push at Harry’s chest to get him up and going – there wasn’t much time left.

“Couldn’t be that bad,” Harry starts off but pauses ever-so-subtle, “or can it?” he disappears from my view – hopefully to his large dinner table in his living room – elevating his voice so we could continue our conversation.

“Believe me. It really can be. Not that you ever experienced a hell like that.” Again, a chuckle passes my lips while I shake my head. A friend of Harry’s had set me up on this date and the male in question wasn’t that horrible, but our mind sets were so different I don’t think that could have ever worked out. I cut the date short after a comment that resembled ‘all women belong in the kitchen’ and sent the lad on his way.

“As if girls throwing them at my feet is something that’s so thrilling. Can’t even have a proper conversation like that. They only have one thing on their mind.” Harry appears back into my view to grab a few napkins on the edge of the table, already turning on his heel again.

“Not to start anything – but uh – you sound like a woman. All men are the same kinda shit? But reversed.” I stop my motions as an amused grin crawls onto my features, dropping the dessert spoons back on the marble and discarding them all together.

“I’m offended. You’re implying that I whine. I don’t whine, I complain that I can’t get laid.” Harry’s voice is still humorous as he ducks beside me to grab the dessert spoons off of the table, bumping his hip with mine to get me out of the way. “I still need glasses.”

“Harry come on, if you wanted loose sex, you’d have it in an instant.” I ignore his comment about the glasses but turn for the cabinet either way. Harry wasn’t someone you could just approach like you’d do while out clubbing, but that didn’t mean the boy couldn’t get lucky from time to time.

“I couldn’t even fix myself a proper date? Let alone find myself a one night stand. They don’t see me like that.” Harry mopes somewhere on the premises of his loft, but nowhere in my line of sight. I visibly roll my eyes – although he obviously can’t see that – all the while a scoff leaves my lips.

“Ah come on, Styles. You’re fuckable. Don’t complain.” I discard his nonsense almost directly. Sometimes I wonder if Harry realized how attractive he even was. He could come off as strong and confident but he was just as insecure as the rest of us – maybe even more than the rest of us.

“What did you just say?” Harry’s voice lowered, his movements stilling as his whole body turned in my direction. “I – never mind.” I mumble, feeling a blush creep onto my features from Harry’s intense stare. The confidence I had once possessed around had completely drained because of his whole aura, the demanding stare accompanied by that lopsided smirk of his.

“Say it again,” Harry demanded quietly, already making his way back up to me, a smile beginning to grow on his lips.

“You’re – well. Desirable. You damn well know that H.” I groan, not quite sure why he suddenly desired a confirmation of his good looks – let alone from me. I’m not sure how long it takes for any sound to pass between us. Harry had always been someone for a dramatic pause now and then.

“I didn’t know you thought about me that way, Y/n.” Harry’s smirk continues to grow as he discards the cutlery completely, slowly trailing towards his open kitchen, where I’m still gathering other utensils needed for Harry’s family dinner.

“I didn’t say I did. I was stating a well-known fact.” I awkwardly throw back at him, trying to maintain a grin of my own as I feel the ground underneath my feet heating rapidly.

“You sure?” He toys with me, his eyes twinkling underneath the dim lighting of his kitchen. He twirls around me, collecting the glasses I had gotten out of the cabinet one by one.

“Yeah…” I trail off, wondering to myself if I was indeed sure of my words. I keep my gaze trained on the expensive crystal instead of my best mate fluttering around me as if this wasn’t a conversation we weren’t supposed to have.

“Too bad.” I still in my movements, one of my hands curled around the stem of a wine glass as I balance my whole weight on my tippy toes. I try to speed-rake my mind about what intentions could have been behind those two simple, plain words, but come up rather empty-handed. Well, I was never someone who could rapidly come up with solutions anyway.

“Too – what? Why?” I come out of my trance, landing back onto my feet as I turn around, glass dangling in my hand which Harry happily plucks from between my fingers.

“I’d – I wouldn’t mind.” He winks and within a split second my cheeks are a fire-blazing red and my eyes are as wide as they can possibly get without popping.  

I’m taking one step forward, towards Harry, but refrain from moving any further. I’m not sure if I’m reading his words as I’m supposed to, and I’m not ready to give into my urges if they are misplaced. Harry is a bit more confident than I am and closes the gap between us in just a matter of a few split seconds.

I’m pressed against the counter, my hands covering over Harry’s biceps as his own hands cup my face, keeping me in place. A little noise – what it was supposed to sound as, even I am not completely certain – leaves my lips and causes Harry to push himself even impossibly closer.

His hands wander, his lips staying locked with mine as my own mind seems to click. My hands rest on his firm biceps first, a few moments later letting them flow over his exposed arm towards his toned chest. I’m letting my fingers ghost up on his chest towards his neck when Harry’s hands cup my bum firmly, drawing a moan from my already parted lips.

“How much time do we still have?” Harry breathes against the skin of my neck. He technically forces me to open my eyes, which are immediately cast towards the clock on the far kitchen wall. “If we’re lucky, about forty-five minutes.”

“That’s all I need.” Harry chuckles as his arms snake around my body, hoisting me up into his arms. I just hope we’re not getting an unexpected visit.

BTS Poster Connection Theory

You know how there are pairings in many of BTS’ music videos, Rap Monster with V, Jungkook with Suga, and J Hope with Jimin, while Jin is usually on his own, the phrases on their posters all connect with each other (almost as if they’re talking to one another):

Jungkook and Suga:

(In the RUN MV we see Jungkook and Suga fighting, mainly because Suga is angry and Jungkook tries to stop him but only ends up getting hurt in the end. There are also times in other MVs where they are apart while the other pairs are together)

Jungkook: "The direction of my heart, I want to run to that place.”

Suga: “Don’t come any closer, you’ll be unhappy.”

(Jungkook’s heart may be with Suga, because he loves his hyung, but Suga feels he may only hurt him if they are together)

V and Rap monster:

(Tae is looking at his reflection, Rap mon’s song was called Reflection and most of the lyrics mentioned were about him wanting to love himself)

V: If I had made a different choice, would you have not left?” 

Rap monster: “I’m only looking at you from behind because now isn’t the right time.”

(Tae may have made a mistake that caused him to lose Rap mon, and he thinks that he may hate him or Rap mon may have left Tae behind to go find himself)

Jimin and J Hope:

(In J Hope’s poster isn’t that the same plane Jimin was looking at in Fire and that was in the Young Forever MV? I just find it interesting that they’re both looking up at the sky, maybe because they’re both thinking of one another at that time?)

Jimin: “I lied, because there’s no way you can love someone like me.”

J Hope: “As long as you’re shining, I’m okay.”  

(Jimin feels as if he doesn’t deserve a friend like J Hope because of his past sins, but J Hope is fine with being apart from him as long as it makes him happy)

Jin:

I feel like Jin’s poster sums up what they all may be feeling and how they wish they could fix the mistakes they made in the past 

Jin: “If I could turn back time, I would want to be the best man in the world.”

But it could also depict that, since he’s the one in all of the MVs that may be dead, if he could turn back the clock to when he was alive (in the past), he would do so many things over and be the best man in the world. Maybe that’s why he’s the only one in a suit? People tend to be buried in suits.

Naruto Fanfics!!

***Time Travel***

backslide by blackkat COMPLETE

This was one of my first time travel fanfics… and my first slash fanfic as well.  But blackkat is incredibly talented with her writing, and I find myself unable to find a flaw in any of her fics!  She has great skill in characterization and fluff, as well as plot.  I also recommend Stormborn, reverse, Snake in the Grass, Wolf at the Door, and, really, all her fics.  But those are my favorites!

A Wrinkle in Time by rightforlife ABANDONED

Just an epic fic.  Naruto, Shikamaru, and Lee go back in time and they are epic.  I love their relationship in here! I guess you could consider them all OP, but I found it fun that way… The fic is abandoned though, sadly.

It’s For a Good Cause, I Swear! By Sarah1281 COMPLETE

A hilarious fanfic, where Kakashi, Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura go back in time and fixes a lot of things in a hilarious way. I really love how they deal with Orochimaru lol

Team Tensai and Mangekyo Sharingan by Wingwyrm COMPLETE

Team 7 goes back in time and find themselves to be kids!  They’re both awesome, though Mangekyo Sharingan is a little darker than Team Tensai, due to talks of child rape.  

Thicker Than Blood by EmptySurface ABANDONED

Sasuke and Naruto go back in time, though they come back as kids.  Their relationship in here is really sweet and I really wish the story would be continued…

Time and Again by KyLewin COMPLETE (with a sequel)

A really good fanfic.  Naruto at first thinks he’s in a genjutsu, which is a little unique. It was very well written.

The Lives Worth Saving by cyywsaphyre ABANDONED

Awesome fic! And unique in that Naruto goes back in his physical body and the way he deals with Hizashi is really awesome.

Begging for Forgiveness by Freezing Rain WIP?

This is Kakashi-centric and incredibly hard on the heart because KAKASHI and he is just so messed up.  I love his relationship with his ninken in here though.

Just the Usual Habits by mapplepie ONE-SHOT

Kakashi-centric and incredibly heart-wrenching.  But really well written.

Unwanted Trip by Solara Myles ONGOING

One of my absolute favorites!  Team 7 is sent back in time and they’re, obviously, kick ass. They’re relationship with Kakashi is amazing in here.  Also, the author’s plot is very unique compared to other time travels, imo, and it’s just well done.  

Parallels by QuestofDreams COMPLETE

This is more of a dimensional-travel thing, also SNS. It’s pretty good though!  The Yondaime is in here, though I think this was written before it was revealed that the Yondaime was Minato.  

Silent Guardians by FallenQueen2 COMPLETE

Naruto and Shikamaru go back in time to fix stuff. They fix stuff epically, of course.

Steal My Thunder God by Nauro

Naruto experiments with the Hiraishin and finds himself on the night of his birth… and mistaken for Minato.  It’s a pretty unique idea, though I think the fic is abandoned.

Into the Future by ichilover3

SNS fanfic!  Sasuke and Naruto go into the future and find their future selves in a relationship.  It’s a lot of smut/fluff, but it’s cute and funny.  Not much for plot though, since the focus is on the pairing.

Yet, mad I am not by Erisah Mae ONGOING

Itachi-centric.  He dies and finds himself in the past of another dimension.  It’s a pretty awesome fanfic, and I really like Itachi in here!

Escape Artist by Fiorea POSSIBLY ABANDONED?

MinaNaru.  It’s a really good fanfic, and it made me like the pairing cause of the way it’s done. Naruto has a lot of issues he has to go through in here, and Minato helps him.  They have a very cute relationship, which starts off as friends with Minato hinting interest and Naruto being his lovely oblivious self. But it’s super cute and very well done. Really hope it’s not abandoned.

History has its eyes on you by tasalmalin COMPLETE

Kakashi-centric! It’s a five-part series, and it really explores Kakashi’s mental state very well.  The whole series is well done and does justice to Kakashi’s character.

A snake among the leaves by blackkat COMPLETE

Orochimaru goes back in time and he brilliantly fixes stuff, much to the suspicion of everyone haha.

Hush by Xov ABANDONED

ItaNaru.  Naruto goes back in time, but it seems to be another dimension.  Naruto tries to fix stuff, but he realizes he really can’t because of it being a whole other dimension and all. Minato is alive in here and Naruto has PTSD.

Tampering with Time by Palaserece ONGOING

REALLY good and one of my absolute favorites! Minato goes back in time, but as a sort of reincarnation.  The fic is well-written, really long and still updating, and it’s really awesome because of the characterizations!

Stumble by writer168 ONGOING (nearly complete)

Sakura and Sasori go back in time!  Sakura is epic in here and Sasori is hilarious. There are also other characters go back in time but I won’t spoil it!  Sakura has serious trauma in here.  The characters are all well done and I love her frienship with Kakashi!  (I’m a total Kakashi fan… if it isn’t obvious by now…)

Blind Stars of Fortune by 100demons ONGOING

Kakashi goes back in time and into his 20 year old self!  Well-written and awesome plot!  I just love Kakashi.  

Walking Backwards on a Tightrope by Lithos Maitreya

Really good fic!  A lot of people go back in time, including Naruto, Sasuke, Shikamaru, and Shino.  It’s well-written and interesting in its twists.

Shinobi Rules by Squishfie

One of the few fem!Naruto fics I enjoyed… mostly cause it’s KakaNaru lol.  But Naruto goes back in time and becomes a student under Minato.  It’s a cute story, imo.

***Gen Fics and Self-Inserts***

Naruto Hatake by Agent-G COMPLETE

I really like the idea of Kakashi adopting Naruto and kind of wish he had, even though I understand he couldn’t (mentally).  Just a really cute fic with a good plot.

Dreaming of Sunshine by Silver Queen ONGOING

One of my first self-insert fanfics and one of the best. It made me fall in love with the Nara Clan.  Just INCREDIBLY well-written with amazing plot lines.

Sakura by Darkpetal16 COMPLETE

A SI where the person finds herself in Sakura. Hilarious and the character’s pretty awesome.  Good plot too.

Déjà vu no Jutsu by Vixen Tail COMPLETE

Really well-written SI, set before/during Third Shinobi war.  I like Minato in here :) Really, all the characters in here.  Also chibi!Kakashi is adorable.  

Naruto: Myoushuu no Fuuin by May Wren ABANDONED

A what-if fic.  What if Naruto was a seal master at a young age?  Really well written and pretty awesome! :D

The Prodigy Namikaze by SoulReaperCrewe

Features Kushina and Minato alive.  Does have Naruto neglected at a young age by them though… But, otherwise, a really great fic. I think Naruto is a little OP in here, and slightly OOC sometimes, but I still enjoyed the fic and it has an interesting pairing.  

Unplanned Paternity by TwinTrouble ABANDONED…?

Another fic where Kakashi takes care of chibi!Naruto! It’s one of my favorites and just really well-written and pretty long too.  

Broken by azfaerydust COMPLETE with a sequel!

An angsty and fluffly Kakashi adopts Naruto fic. The author characterizes Naruto and Kakshi well, since they both are very traumatized in this fic.  It’s just adorable because Kakashi is overprotective and ahh! One of my favorites and I’ve reread it way too many times!

Of Harrowed Hearts by Sable_Scribe ONGOING

REALLY amazing and one of my favorites!  Naruto and Team 7 is awesome in here, and Kurama is also amazing. The story updates weekly (as of now) and it’s super satisfying and I love the plot.  

Tuna Fish and Red-Splattered Pages by Pitch Black Magpie ONGOING

I really love Team 7 in here.  Naruto and Sasuke’s frienship is pretty awesome as well. Naruto’s character is very… unique too. I like the supernatural side of the story too, though I guess it seems slightly crack-y.  I like the view Naruto has of the Uchiha as well.

A Political Perspective by VJ Riddle

Kakashi creates an epic Team 7.  Really wish this had happened in canon tbh.  

The Somewhat Cracked mind of Uchiha Itachi by Kereea

Hilarious!  I really love Itachi in here and, really, everyone.

Blood Sings by Fireun Feather ONGOING

Naruto is a half-demon in here. I like Minato and Naruto in here and their father-son relationship.  

Chiaroscuro by boomvroomshroom

Shikamaru-centric!  I really enjoy the plot.  

***Pairing fics***

(mostly slash fanfics… you have been warned)

~SNS

(A lot of these fics are dark with fluff mixed in… because I can’t see SNS being totally fluffy.  It doesn’t really fit in with how I see them.  They’re both messed up people, Sasuke more evidently.)

Sound of Dreams by zrina COMPLETE

Really, really love this one because it features an amazing plot, is super long, and I love the characterizations of Naruto and Sasuke.  This is a NaruSasu fic and really well-written.

A World of Truth by luchia COMPLETE

Enjoyed this one because it’s in Sasuke’s POV and I liked how his character was done in here. It shows he’s very human, but not irredeemable.

Hopeless Wanderer by dawnstruck (series)

Super dark but really delicious.  Sasuke takes Naruto with him when he defects and wow… it’s really good!  Their relationship is very codependent, which, in reality, they are based on canon imo. I like the idea of Naruto and Sasuke leaving Konoha together tbh.

Post-Traumatic by IsolaVirtuosa COMPLETE

Really long and incredibly dark at times. Sasuke is really messed up in here and Naruto isn’t altogether sane himself.  Their relationship is very messed-up, but the ending is satisfying after that roller-coaster of a journey.

All In by Narutos Mother (momhuey) COMPLETE

The second half of the story is VERY dark, but Sasuke is super sweet in here. Slight Sakura-bashing?  She’s the villain of the story in here.

Lost on the Road of Life by shherie (series)

Cute story (it’s the first in a very cute series anyways), but Sasuke and Naruto do have issues getting into a relationship. Naruto is determined in here though and Sasuke is his bastard self in the first story, though absolutely adorable in the rest of the series.  Hachi, the sequel after a series of one-shots, is really good too!

Titanic by meowstelle ONE-SHOT

In Itachi’s POV and an AU.  But I found it really hilarious.

Breaking him down by IvvyMoon COMPLETE

Another dark fic, because Sasuke is an utter bastard at the beginning, though he redeems himself.  

Healing the Broken by KizuKatana COMPLETE

Dark and angsty, but their characters are done well. Great ending and plot.

An Invincible Summer by ShanaStoryteller COMPLETE

Naruto is gender-fluid in here, but WOW is it done well! The whole story is absolutely amazing and I didn’t want it to end!

Phoenix Rising by Kai_Maciel

This isn’t really SNS, because Naruto ends up raising Sasuke (you have to read it to find out why), but I really like the relationship because chibi!Sasuke is adorable and Naruto as a father should be this way, not the way he is to Boruto.  

For Brothers Share This Bond by bluedemon92 COMPLETE

Okay, this is the definition of dark and angsty. It’s really hard to read sometimes because of the issues… but it’s more Itachi-centric, with SNS.  But it has a unique plot and is well-written. Also KakaIta and KisaIta.

The sun within me by fangirlandiknowit ONGOING

Sasuke and Naruto find themselves in another dimension (from the movie Road to Ninja) and the plot is interesting.

~KakaNaru

(One of my OTPs, nbd)

A ninja must see underneath the underneath by Blooregard89 COMPLETE

KakaNaru and their frienship-to-romance is cute.  

Things Just Ain’t the Same Any Time the Hunter Gets Captured by the Game by barspoon COMPLETE

ONE OF MY FAVORITES.  She does the relationship REALLY well and it’s just amazing.  

Konoha’s Orange by purplefox COMPLETE

Good plot and it’s interesting, that’s for sure.  I like that there’s a bit of dimension travel in here and I like the relationship.  Kakashi is the one who’s oblivious in here, which is pretty funny.

A Safe Haven by Red_Hot_Holly_Berries ONGOING

I like the plot in here and I really look forward to the rest!

When You Look Me in The Eyes by blueicequeen ONE-SHOT

REALLY like this one!  A long one-shot and their relationship is super well done. Especially since it’s just a one-shot!

Fifteen Million Ryo by Riya3 COMPLETE

An interesting plot idea and I like how the relationship comes about.  It’s also funny and the side story with Sakura and Sai is done well.

(If you have other KakaNaru fics, I’d really, really love you if you’d let me know. There aren’t enough in the world…)

~Other Pairings

Break to Breathe by Okami Rayne COMPLETE (series)

ShikaNeji!  Interesting plot and the characterization is well done, to say the least.

Hyakumensou by Agni ABANDONED?

ItaNaru!  I like the idea of an arranged marriage and I like how the relationship progresses. Though Itachi could be considered slightly OOC, but I still enjoyed it.

Dimension by YukiwaFuru ABANDONED…

NaruMina… short, but I really enjoyed Naruto in here. The relationship was only a friendship, from what is written.

Walk the road of life by LasySwitch COMPLETE

KakaObi.  A soulmate AU and it’s cute.

Stalker by SweetDreamsAreMadeOfNaruto ONESHOT

A dark ObiKaka.  

Kiss and Run by SweetDreamsAreMadeOfNaruto ONESHOT

Cute KakaObi!  

It’s Just That Any One of Us is Half Without Another One is You by Branch COMPLETE

This is largely Gen and takes the original Naruto plot and fleshes it out and gives a lot more justice to the plot.  It ends up being SakuSasuNaru.

In Bond and Blood by thehoyden ONESHOT

KakaIru.  One of the few KakaIru’s I enjoyed!  

A Set-up For A Romantic Comedy by sleepyjeesh COMPLETE

KakaObi!  Super cute and I like Obito in here!

Surrender by triste ONESHOT

Dark ItaNaru!  Interesting idea though.

Your heart is a weapeon the size of your first by blackkat

ZabuNaru (rare pairing).  It’s well done because blackkat somehow makes any pairing work!

Another reincarnation story by HeavenOnFire COMPLETE

KisaIta.  Itachi is reincarnated, as well as Kisame. It’s a nice story with a good plot.  

The Grey Crayon by checkerbloom COMPLETE

MinaKaka.  Chibi!Naruto is super adorable!  The whole story is cute.  

The Way Things Are by Aini COMPLETE

ShikaNeji.  It’s a cute story and I like the pairing :)

Stop justifying ONS characters actions. Rant about Mahiru Hiragi.

She did experiment on the Hyakuya children.
She treatet Shinya like shit.
She planned to manipulate Guren at a young age, but now it’s a “Oh, I love him so much”.
She is more in love with the idea of having someone she can’t have, than Guren himself.
If she would’ve really loved Guren she wouldn’t have made a plan where she knew Guren’s father would have died, she should have helped him, not indirectly kill him.
She could have avoided so many things BUT SHE DIDN’T DO ANYTHING AGAINST IT. Kureto and the others where also treatet bad from the Hiragi, but they didn’t do SUCH things as killing her own friends, innocent people and etc.
Even the author stated that she is a brutal character. Most of her decissions where made by THE MAHIRU, not Mahiru no yo, which you can actually clearly find out.
After she and Guren had sex, she told him to kill his friends, because “then we can’t be together”.
She killed Shinya, Mito, Goshi, Shigure and Sayuri 8 years ago. Guren loved them so much, they where the only ones beside his father who he trusted and she still killed them, if she really loved him, she wouldn’t do that. So she basically killed the only people he ever loved, in the end she was the only one left who he “loved” or used to.

People say “Mahiru is innocent, it’s all Mahiru no yo’s doing!” But that’s so wrong. Mahiru DOES have control over herself and has FULL control as a vampire.
We also can notice that we know it’s Mahiru when she shows her “love” to Guren and that’s the point where we know it’s her.
She killed so many innocent people AS Mahiru Hiragi.
Mahiru no yo is a player she doesn’t take things too serious and shows no love to Guren.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ How could Mahiru Hiragi fullfil her plans and know what to do if she wasn’t herself? See, that’s what I’m meaning.
⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Shinoa stated that Mahiru doesn’t care about humanity, what is true.

She refused Shinya at a young age (even thought she knew what he had to do for her (killing his own friends etc)) and that he could die if she refuses him,
when they first meet at the first second.
I do understand she did this because she loves Guren, but Shinya desperatly tried to convince her, with saying that they should act like they where together.
All she wanted was power, even Ferid is better because he knows when to stop, while Mahiru never tried to fix her actions.
I think the only thing she ever did good is “taking the demon out of Shinoa”, but if we compare it with all of her other actions, it won’t change a fact. It also looks like she took the demon out of her for more power, because if she was such a genius, she could have find another way on doing this.

Stop glorifying her actions, it’s so wrong.
I see a lot of people doing the same with other ONS characters, but no one here is an angel.

She forced Krul into a contract with her and made Krul make her a Vampire. She took her brother from her. I can’t believe Guren is keeping up with her shit.

When will people realize it’s NOT only Mahiru no yo

If you really love her, then you would accept all her bad actions and would stop justifying them.
Full Disclosure

destiel, PG-13, 3.7k

This fic was inspired by the following prompt I received from @imsounoplogetic:
So I recently came across this video. And me being the trash that I am, I immediately though of destiel. I was wondering if you could write something base off of this video where Dean is popular kid who Cas thinks is a jerk. Cas is a theatre boy and Cas comes by the rehearsal room and hears Dean singing and is completely shocked?

Thanks to @captainhaterade for their beta work!

AO3 link

Summary: Dean’s the popular kid, and Castiel’s the drama kid who holds a grudge against him due to an incident on his first day of school. They’ve stayed out of each other’s way ever since, until one night Castiel stumbles upon something completely unexpected in the drama room… 


“Cas? Did you actually hear a word I just said or are you too busy checking out Winchester’s ass?”

Ash’s typical laid-back drawl cut through Castiel thoughts, and he turned to the long-haired boy with a scowl.

“I was not looking at Dean’s ass,” he said, though it sounded more petulant than aggressive.

“Sure you weren’t.” Ash’s raised eyebrows were a pretty good clue that he didn’t believe Castiel at all. “So what did I say, then?” he challenged.

“You were talking about…” Castiel frantically cast his mind back to the last two minutes. Okay, so he had perhaps been looking at Dean. But certainly not at his ass. Not that there was much to look at (or so Castiel had convinced himself). His face, now there was a work of art. Especially those freckles that dusted his nose and cheeks and –

Castiel forcefully cut off that train of thought. Freckles or no freckles, Dean Winchester was a jerk. One of the popular, “cool” kids who looked down on Castiel and his nerdy, geeky friends. He was good at sports, got above average grades (to Castiel’s annoyance) and had a line around the block of boys and girls wanting to date him. Naturally, he only dated the prettiest people, and his circle of friends were similarly aesthetically blessed.

Of course, those things alone would not merit the descriptor “jerk”. Dean’s attitude towards Castiel, however, did. Castiel had transferred to Lawrence High at the start of his senior year, and he’d met Dean on his second day of school, in front of the classroom where Mr. Thompson’s English class was about to start. Dean had been chatting to one of his friends (Castiel would later find out that her name was Bella) and was blocking the doorway.

“Excuse me,” Castiel had said politely, meeting Dean’s ridiculously green eyes. Dean had given him a once-over, making Castiel feel like he was on display in a zoo, before grabbing Bella by the arm and pulling her towards him so Castiel could pass by.

“Sorry, dude,” Dean had said, frowning and looking troubled. Castiel had stepped into the classroom without another word, but he could hear Bella giggling and whispering something to Dean, to which Dean had responded with a derisive snort and a “he’s all yours – not interested.”

Castiel had felt humiliated, and ever since he’d avoided Dean like the plague, scowling at him whenever their eyes met, which usually had the effect of Dean looking down with a tight, unhappy expression. Dean was a shallow jerk, plain and simple, and Castiel wanted nothing to do with him.

The only good thing about him was that he was a member of the school’s LGBT+ Alliance, which was headed by Charlie Bradbury who was also their only mutual friend. But Castiel had always taken care to stay away from Dean during those meetings, and had sometimes avoided them altogether if he knew Dean would be coming. It exasperated Charlie to no end, as she was convinced they’d be great friends if they would only talk to each other and give it a chance.

But she was wrong – they were too different. Getting closer to Dean would only lead to disappointment. It wasn’t worth trying.

“About what, Cas?”

Oh, right, his conversation with Ash. Damn, Castiel really needed to sleep more – he was having a hell of time concentrating lately.

“About who we could cast to replace Bradley as Mal,” Castiel said confidently. He hadn’t been that zoned out, thankfully, and remembered just enough to answer Ash’s question about The Addams Family musical performance the drama club was holding at the end of the year.

Ash regarded him suspiciously for a moment, but then shrugged and let it go. “Yep, so me and Jo were thinkin’ maybe Garth could do it?”

Castiel considered it. “Maybe. But I’m not sure his singing voice is strong enough to carry Mal’s solo songs. Besides, didn’t he say he’d rather work behind the scenes? Last I heard he was helping with lighting and sound. Don’t we have any other candidates?”

“Not really – everyone else either already has a part or is helping out backstage. Yeah, Garth was assisting Kelly but she can probably do it on her own. I don’t see how we got much of a choice. We ain’t got much time left.”

True enough, they couldn’t afford to wait much longer to decide on a replacement for Mal’s part. Why did Bradley’s family have to take him skiing, anyway? Such a dangerous, expensive and completely pointless sport.

Castiel wondered if Dean skied.

Standing up with his now empty lunch tray, Castiel nodded at Ash. “I see your point. I’ll go mention it to Jody and Donna, then. See what they think.”

Ash waved his hand in a lazy salute. “Thanks man, ‘ppreciate it. Oh, and Cas?”

Castiel turned back around.

“You really should give Dean another chance. I know you guys got off on the wrong foot, and I don’t blame you for that, but he really ain’t all that bad once you get to know him.”

“And since when do you hang out with Dean Winchester?” Castiel asked, feeling betrayed. He’d had no idea Ash was even on speaking terms with Dean.

“Since he gave me a ride home in that beautiful car of his ‘bout a month ago when I was stranded here after my sis bailed on me. We got to talking after.” Ash waggled his eyebrows at Castiel. “He really isn’t just a pretty face, y’know. And don’t pretend you don’t think he’s pretty. You’re a terrible liar.”

“So what? The guy’s an arrogant jerk - his looks mean nothing to me. He basically gave me the Darcy treatment on my second day of school, Ash. Before he even knew me! As if I was even interested in him!”

“Yeah and we all know how that story ends, don’t we?” Ash was grinning now. “Look, I ain’t gonna deny that was a dick move, but from what I’ve learned about the guy, he tends to put his foot in it when he’s flustered.” He looked at Castiel pointedly. “Maybe something about you just throws him off his game?”

Castiel had had about enough of this conversation. The memory of their first meeting always left him feeling hollow and in a foul mood, and he needed to keep his spirits up to survive ethics class with Mr. Adler later this afternoon.

“Whatever it is, I’m not interested in finding out. I doubt I’m missing out on much. I’ll see you at rehearsal, Ash.” He walked away before Ash could say anything else.

Since ur psychic any S4 predictions?

(still hasn’t finished season 3) well i think,

ok i’m just gonna like uhh fling some stuff at the wall and we’ll see what sticks in a few weeks. i wanted 2 do character shitposts but instead i just predicted some basic plot :/

  • We all call Keith a loner but Pidge also has a habit of going off on her own and thinking her way is best. Which is going to bite her in the bum next season when she slips off to find Matt.
  • In season 1, Pidge realized that she was part of a team, and that teammates have each other’s backs. You can’t just fix one thing on your own, you have ties and responsibilities, yada yada. She’s seemed to unlearn that in season 4. 
    • It could be because she’s gotten more confident over the past few seasons. Personally, I think it’s because the team dynamics are going 2 get hella unstable next season, and as uncertainties rise Pidge decides to just make a ‘quick’ pit stop to check out a Matt Tip and then ends up in a Star Wars movie.
    • Like, look at that cloak. That’s a Star Wars thing. I never watched the prequels, but Pidge is gonna be Obi-Wan Kenobing this shit like nobody’s business.
  • Pidge, making a lightsaber: God I am so freaking cool
  • Coran wasn’t around much in season 3 but now that we’ve established he’s present in a ton of Tragic Backstory, we’re going to see that play out in some way.
    • Corangst time
  • Acxa is going to be in the perfect position to kill a Paladin (i.e. Keith) but she’ll decide to not take the shot because of x moral reason and then we’ll have an episode dedicated to more Galra angsting. This show Loves Galra angst.
    • This’ll be a subplot though to the episode where Lotor angsts about Zarkon and how he and his father keep coming into conflict. Zarkon is basically going to piss all over the work Lotor put in during season 3 and it’s going to peeve purple boy off.
    • Zarkon is happy about the meteorite or whatever Lotor stole. Zarkon is happy that they’re going to make a dark Voltron. Zarkon is not happy that Lotor and his generals are planning to pilot it, because Zarkon is only happy when he’s in complete control of something. Cue father/son tension.
  • Hey so like, is Haggar Lotor’s mom or what?? Like, I figure he was a test tube baby or something, because otherwise Haggar is going to be PISSED about her husband having a kid with someone else. Lmfaooo I hope we see this conversation.
  • Speaking of mom’s, we’ll meet Keith’s mom in the last 30 seconds of the season because this show only knows how to end on cliffhangers. 
    • She’s going to slowly take off her helmet and she’ll look Exactly Like Keith (tiny chin) and everyone’ll gasp and Keith, voice a little wobbly, desperately trying not to get his hopes up even as his fists tighten at his side, will say, “Mom?” before cut to black.
  • ‘Shiro’ will be revealed as a clone within the first couple of eps because this show Does Not Know How To Pace Things (it’s either that, or he’ll be revealed midway through after a bunch of mixed filler/plot eps). Once everyone realizes that the Real Shiro is still out there somewhere, Keith immediately sets out to look for him (maybe this is the destabilizing thing Keith chooses to do??).
    • This could also explain why Pidge decided to look for Matt on her own. She sees Keith fuck off and is like ‘oh shit me too’ and goes.
  • Also like, one thing I never got is that back in April we saw a picture of Matt and Shiro fighting together. That pic was probably from a scene happening this season or maybe the next one, which makes sense. What doesn’t make sense is that Shiro is wearing the black paladin uniform he disappeared in??? And again, haven’t finished season 3 yet, but Buzz Lightyear doesn’t seem to have it.
    • So tldr real Shiro is kicking back with Matt and by kicking back I mean probably fighting for their lives. Shiro’s life sucks.

anyway. turn up

“Please don’t pick this flower!”

My kindergartner, Stig, has a flower that he planted by the front stairs of our house that was sadly picked twice in a row by someone who was careless or mean or too young to know better.

It really broke his heart because each time it started to regrow, he’d watch its progress excitedly, only to come home and find it picked right after it bloomed.

I was fuming with rage inside that anyone could be that mean-spirited, and that I would have to try to find a way to soothe him over something we couldn’t fix.

So when we saw that it was about to bloom a third time about a week ago, I decided to make a little sign: “Please don’t pick this flower! It belongs to a little boy who loves it and takes care of it. Thanks!”

It was a Saturday morning when my husband opened the front door to find a book and a card addressed “For the little boy who takes care of the flower” neatly tied with twine.

Inside the card was a message from a neighbor we didn’t know saying that she remembered the book from her childhood and thought Stig would like it, too. The story was about a man who brings joy to a city with a single potted flower. Perfect.

I can’t stop smiling that this one little orange flower has gone out and inspired multiplying joy and kindness.

Hello :) I really love your headcanons they are great and you are muffin awesome. I was surprised to see that requests were open so I'd like to request an scenario/ headcanon with RFA+V+Saeran with an MC that can see her own and everyone elses's read thread of fate (Not sure If I wrote it right) so when she meets them she knows who her soulmate is. I hope that my english is not bad and that you are fine. Thank you in advance and I hope you have a great day :)

We can’t believe we reached the level of muffin. Thank you…and hope you like these~


Zen:

  • You knew he was your soulmate before you met him through the RFA
  • You had landed front seat tickets to one of his shoes awhile back
  • And the string on your finger led right to his
  • You couldn’t believe it, and to be honest, you were almost distracted for most of the show
  • Gathering up your courage, you sneak behind stage to maybe get the chance to talk to him
  • You weren’t sure how to tell him, but at least fate brought you together, right?
  • But he was hugging some other girl
  • The hug became a hold…and then he was kissing her cheek and calling her pet names
  • You asked a nearby stage hand, and it turns out he was already dating
  • You were a little heartbroken, so you kind of fade out
  • Despite the string on your finger, you didn’t really want to see him again
  • Fast forward a few years later, and you see him in the chatroom
  • You know he’s single now, but you’re still kind of turned off…because everyone knows they have a soulmate
  • Then one day, the topic comes up in a chat
  • Zen starts sharing that he didn’t believe in soulmates until the end of his last relationship, where he found that dating around just didn’t suit him
  • After that, you kind of softened on him a little
  • You guys talk a lot more…and you find yourself falling for him more and more
  • When you guys finally meet, you tell Zen that you can see the strings and who everyone’s soulmates are
  • He jokingly asks, “Yeah? Can you tell me mine? Getting kind of lonely here.”
  • You smile and lift up your own finger
  • He thinks you’re joking at first, but when he realizes you’re not, he’s so overjoyed
  • He was so worried that he was falling for you, and once again, it would end like all his other relationships 
  • “I didn’t believe in soulmates before, and I was beginning to doubt again…and then you came in.”

Yoosung:

  • Yoosung also believed in soulmates
  • So he always wanted to save himself for his soulmate
  • When you two first talked about the topic in the chatroom, you found it rather refreshing to hear someone who believed in it
  • Then you met him at the RFA party
  • And you string led straight to his
  • You didn’t want to freak him out so you stayed quiet
  • But you were a little more open to him otherwise
  • Since soulmates could also be platonic, you weren’t sure pursuing a relationship would be the best idea
  • So you took it slow
  • You did grow very close to him though, and you found yourself connected to him in someway for sure
  • Then one day, you two were just working together on something and laughing as usual, and Yoosung just blurts, “I think I’m in love with you.”
  • You’re shocked to say the least
  • His nerves gets to him and he starts rambling, but you get the gist of it
  • He says he thinks you could be his soulmate, and he really hopes so because he finds himself completely smitten by you in a way he’s never felt before
  • After some awkward silence, he buries his head in his hands, “I guess there’s no way to know for sure, huh?”
  • You chuckle nervously and tell him you’re on of those people who can see strings
  • And he deflates thinking that if you knew, you would’ve told him
  • You’re quick to fix that mistake
  • He pulls you into this bone crushing hug

Jaehee:

  • You had always seen strings of soulmates
  • You had watched your friends as they realized their soulmates…you had watched soulmates pass each other on the street
  • But there was no string on yours
  • You knew that a string could appear on people at any time in their life, and not being born with one didn’t mean you didn’t have a soulmate
  • But since most had their string appear by the time they were children, you had slowly given up on the idea of you having one
  • It was a part of life, and by the time you joined the RFA, you were indifferent to it
  • Despite this nonchalance about soulmates, you still felt a connection to Jaehee
  • You found yourself opening to up to her, and she was opening up to you a lot as well
  • You two tried to meet on several occasions, but it never happened because of work on both your ends
  • So, in the end, nightly phone conversations became a thing
  • Then one day, after you hang up, and you notice a yellow string tie around your finger and slide out the door
  • You call Jaehee right away and she has to calm you down a little because you’re mildly freaking out
  • She knows your stance on soulmates, and that you can see the strings and yet never had one yourself
  • You had mixed feelings about honestly
  • You and Jaehee had such a strong bond, and thinking that you might have a stronger one with someone else due to fate was off putting
  • After this incident, she knew she had to meet in you person, even just to be reassuring
  • She makes the time and you do too and finally you two meet for coffee at a cafe
  • You freeze the moment you see her
  • She asks you what’s wrong, but she knows when you look at your finger…then across the way to her hand
  • You press a hand over your heart, “Thank goodness.”  

Jumin:

  • String Theory King
  • You two seemed to understand each other from the start
  • Of course, this would lead to a lot of deep conversations at any time of the day
  • You noticed he often used the analogy of a tangled string, and you found it odd…considering you often saw the tangled strings of others lives when it came to soulmates and connections
  • You jokingly brought it up, but he seemed to dismiss it so you dropped it
  • You were always intrigued by the idea of soulmates, but you never thought about your own too much
  • But you felt connected to him, and he admitted as much to you
  • Your bond only grew stronger as the days past, and finally it happened that you got to visit him at his penthouse
  • When he saw you, he just seemed to stare for a long time
  • He apologized and said something along the lines of staring in your beautiful eyes
  • But he started acting stranger since that meeting
  • You thought you were reading too much into it
  • But you could’ve sworn his glances were longer and that he often looked at your hands before his eyes darted to the ground
  • You ignored it for the most part and your friendship went on as usual
  • Then one day, you were sitting across the table from him and you noticed your string…it was so short…and it connected to his finger
  • He smiles at you, “So you finally noticed.”
  • Turned out he could also see strings, and he noticed yours and his right away
  • He also figured out that you could see strings too, in the way you watched strangers
  • But he never wanted to rush things, so he stayed quiet
  • There was no grand confession
  • He just reached out and held your hand and you both smiled in acceptance

Seven:

  • You two got along as soon as you entered the RFA
  • Time did nothing to change that
  • You were also beginning to like him a little, but with your ability to see soulmates, you were trying not to feed those feelings
  • As coincidence would have it, you had a dream that he was your soulmate…which was odd since you hadn’t met him yet
  • Were you in for a shock when you two finally did meet at an RFA party
  • Your string was connected straight to his
  • But you weren’t exactly sure how to tell him
  • Sure, you two were pretty open about most things….but this was a totally different thing
  • Still, you dropped subtle hints and your dream gave the perfect opportunity
  • You told him in a casual way, and he completely laughs it off
  • It stung a little, but you managed to chuckle
  • If this was fate, things would work out in the end, right?
  • Time goes on, and your feelings for him only grows
  • Unfortunately, he gets more and more aloof as well
  • He answers your calls less, seems more closed, and always has an excuse why you can’t meet
  • When the whole thing about the bomb being in your apartment comes up, he has no choice but to rush over to fix it
  • Things get super tense, and you finally address him about him pushing you away and acting cold since you two seemed to get along so well
  • He blows up at you, and says he’s one of those people who can see soulmate strings
  • He claims your string is not connected to his
  • Little does he know, you can very easily see that it’s not true and you finally tell him as much
  • He shies away with the realization that you see it too, but he still tries to push you away
  • With each attempt, this string gets brighter as if emphasizing the truth
  • Finally, he just breaks down knowing he can’t fight fate any longer
  • He apologizes quietly
  • He gives this really sweet confession, but he ends it with “I guess I’m just tied to you somehow.”
  • He didn’t mean it…but that only made you two laugh twice as hard
  • At least you were back to normal

Saeran:

  • You had a string tied to you when you were a kid
  • But sometime in your early teen years, the string disappeared
  • At first, you thought your soulmate had died…but then it reappeared
  • It faded in and out
  • Then it completely disappeared again around the time you entered the RFA
  • You weren’t sure the reason, but you were really worried about your soulmate
  • You thought he might have been battling death or something with the way it went in and out…and maybe now he was finally gone
  • But then you agreed to help Saeyoung find Saeran, and the string slowly appeared again
  • You could never tell where it was connected though, as it faded as the string went on
  • You decided not to think about it too much and threw yourself into helping your friends
  • Specifically, into helping Saeran recover
  • You weren’t sure what drew you to him, but you always felt a soft spot
  • As he recovered, you noticed the string grow a bit brighter…and brighter
  • Coincidentally, you and Saeran grew closer and closer
  • Then one day, you could finally see to the end of the string
  • It was Saeran
  • He had finally gotten to the point where he could love again, and so the string was growing brighter every day
  • You still didn’t tell him…and you waited until he was in better shape
  • But he approaches you, “I don’t really believe in soulmates, but if I did…I think it would be you.” 
  • You look softly down at the string connecting your fingers, “Yeah. Me too…”

V:

  • You didn’t have a soulmate
  • Or so you thought
  • The string didn’t appear as a child, and it didn’t appear as you got older either
  • You had just accepted the fact
  • But when you joined the RFA, you felt a connection to V
  • It wasn’t really deep or magical, but something subtle
  • You understood him, and he understood you
  • But he had Rika…and he was still getting over Rika
  • You accepted that
  • Even when she disappeared a second time, you were there for him as he healed 
  • Little did you know, as time went on, he was growing feelings for you
  • You were so accustomed to not having a soulmate, you didn’t even notice for a long time that a string had appeared on your finger and connected straight to his
  • In fact, you didn’t notice until he took your hand in his and said, “You know…this might sound weird, but I feel connected to you in some grand scheme. It’s like…fate or something.”
  • You stare down at both of your strings and smile, “You don’t even know…”
