Roman Reigns Blurb request - The Mistake

Anonymous asked: Can you write a Roman angst blurb that doesn’t end badly? Maybe it’s super sad but then everything works out in the end?

A/N: I made this angst and fluff, no smut. Door’s open for a part two or an epilogue that would have the potential for some smut. We’ll see. Also - this wasn’t on my ‘to do’ list for the next few weeks but sometimes you gotta just write what comes to you. Enjoy xo


“I fucked up.”

The words rang in her ears as she watched him struggle to look her in the eye, struggle to keep his composure, struggle to speak.

Roman looked down and took a deep breath. “I fucked up.”

“You fucked up how?” Gabriella’s eyes narrowed dangerously.

“There was this girl…….” Roman’s voice trailed off.

Gabriella slid away from him on the couch, letting his hand drop from her thigh. “Any sentence that starts with ‘There was this girl’ is not going to end well for you, Roman.” Her voice was tight. Controlled. Borderline furious.

“Just hear me out,” Roman pleaded as he continued. “That night all the guys went out a few weeks back when you and the girls had that weekend wine and spa retreat thing up in Napa, this girl cornered me on my way out of the bathroom. Took me by surprise and she kissed me. I’d had a few drinks and was a bit fuzzy and so I ended up kissing her back.”

“You ended up kissing her back?” Gabriella took a deep breath. Hurt and betrayal, not anger, washed over her.

“Gabby, please,” Roman reached over to grab her hand but she pulled it back sharply. “I didn’t mean to, I thought it was you. As soon as I realized it wasn’t, I freaked out. I’m sorry, I’m so, so sorry.” Roman’s grey eyes looked deep into hers and she could see that they held fear. Fear that she was not going to forgive him. Fear that she was going to leave.

Lol Trump

Oh man, I woke up to the news of Trump bringing up Sweden. Sweden! :o Apparently some shit went down last night, but nobody here in Sweden knows what it is. People are talking about a horrible terrorist attack.

So naturally, I’m like, holy crap, did something happen in Switzerland?! Since many Americans don’t know the difference. But they seem fine as well, luckily. 

Yeah, shit, I have no idea. You’d think the President of the United States wouldn’t, you know, make shit up about other countries, but times are changing it seems.

Next he’ll include us in a speech how Sweden is on fire and the muslims are raping everyone everywhere so you guys gotta go through with that immigration ban that he wants so badly so you don’t end up the same way. Because you see that shit spammed in every article and video about this country so clearly it must be true. It’s probably on his favorite shit-tier news channel.

I wish I was joking when I said that some Americans seriously believe that shit to be true though. In real fucking life.

But shit, if we were on fire, maybe it wouldn’t be so fucking cold and dark all the time. Eh? EHHHHH?

Theory: What if the reason we see Magnus' cat eyes in Monday's episode is because it's part of his hallucination for his biggest fear(since that is what the episode is about)? Maybe he hallucinates showing Alec his true eyes and hallucination!Alec reacts really badly. HOWEVER, at the end of the episode, he and Alec are talking about their biggest fears and Magnus mentions what he hallucinated and Alec asks him to show his eyes. And real Alec reassures him that he loves them.

all these theories are hurting me because i don’t want to assume anymore because of the disappointment, but this is what i want to happen

anonymous asked:

i have a crush on this girl who has a gf. we talk a lot, but i'm scared that i will ruin their relationship (and my crush knows i like her). i haven't talked to her in 3 days and idk what to do??

Back off. She’s taken. If she liked you romantically she wouldn’t be taken. It sounds harsh and horrible but it’s the truth. It can honestly only end badly because
1. If you end up with her the person she’s dating will blame you for it
2. Flirting could be considered cheating (some people have different definitions of cheating)
3. She could stay with that person and just kind of use you as a self esteem boost

Get over her. There are tons of single girls who would love to be with you.

shadow-vent  asked:

Guess who's back! Would you consider doing some headcanons for Giorno, Buccellati, and Abbachio whose s/o was unaffiliated/unaware of their criminal activities but end up targeted by a rival gang and end up badly injured because of it? Gimmie dat hurt/comfort!

Welcome back! I feel like I’m pretty bad at writing for part 5 characters, but hey i tried :’) I mean practice makes perfect ig. Also these turned out a little scenario-y whoops, (sorry for lateness)
-Em

-WARNING: Light gore and kidnapping mention-

Giorno

  • Giorno can use Golden Experience to heal his s/o’s wounds, but that isn’t going to take away the pain, nor is going to take away the fact that his s/o was kidnapped and beaten as a way to “teach” Giorno a lesson. But his s/o was completely clueless that Giorno was the don of the mafia.
  • Giorno would’ve found his s/o passed out, and covered in cuts and bruises. He would set their head in his lap as he went to work healing up their wounds. “Narancia, Mista. Find out who did this.” he would turn to them with a furious look in his eyes. “Don’t kill them. I want to take care of them myself.” His s/o was hurt because of him, to Giorno that made it his problem and he would fix it himself.
  • After his s/o had recovered he would explain to them what he really did for a job. He’d apologize to them and say that he would understand if they preferred to see other people. He’ll never forgive himself for putting them in harms way.
  • If they ended up staying with him, he’d always stay by their side and if he couldn’t be there he’d have one of the other members of the gang protecting them. It may be a little overwhelming for them at first, but Giorno is serious about protecting them. He refuses to ever let something like that happen to them again.


Abbachio

  • There is only one word to describe how Abbachio felt: furious.
  • His stand isn’t the most powerful so he would have asked Bruno and, putting aside his distaste for him, Giorno. Using Moody Blues, he quickly caught up to his s/o’s kidnappers. He and Bruno would have taken care of them, while Giorno went to see if he could heal them. As soon as the other gang was “taken care of” he’d shove Giorno out of the way and rush to his s/o.

  • When his S/o regained consciousness he would start yelling at them saying that they should be more careful, if they were in danger they should have tried to get in contact with him. He isn’t mad at them, he is more mad at himself for dragging them into this. The only way he can vent his frustration is yelling at anyone or anything.

  • If his S/o decides to stay with him after he explains why they were targeted, he will never let them out of his sight again. He’ll go everywhere with them while glaring at anyone slightly suspicious, including Giorno.


Buccellati

  • When he goes to save his S/o he doesn’t have anyone go with him, he needs to think things through. 
  • He avoids confrontation directly and instead uses sticky fingers to sneak his S/o away from danger. He wants to make sure they are safe before he deals with the rival gang. He doesn’t like too, but when it comes down to it he’ll have no problem ‘eliminating’ this rival gang. 
  • Unlike Giorno and Abbachio, after his S/o recovers he doesn’t become more protective of them. On the contrary he begins to distance himself from his S/o. They were attacked because of him, and he cares to much about them for it to happen to them again. It pains him, but if it means that his s/o will be safe he will break off contact with them.



these are probably bad i feel like shit oops

anonymous asked:

(Trigger warning) So, in high school, I was in a really dark place. I was hospitalized for trying to kill myself and for anorexia. I was in an unhealthy relationship that ended so, so badly. I can't describe the kind of darkness I was in for so long. Now, I'm nearing the end of my university education in psychology. I want to go abroad and help people like me who otherwise wouldn't get the chance to be helped. So many deserve life. So many deserve love. I learned that through my own trials.

Congrats on finishing college and being at a better place mentally and physically

My Pet Cat Turned Into A Boy - Chapter 9 - Bad Days All Around!

‘No. No. No. No. HELL, NO!’

‘C’mon, Casey! You can’t seriously be that scared?’ said Chen in disbelief.

I shot him a deadly look which turned out to be a bad idea because it involved looking down, I squawked and tightened my grip around the branch I was currently hugging. I could hear Tao laughing hysterically.

We had been the only ones about the manor today with nothing to do, so we’d decided to go for a walk outside. I should have known that anything involving these two would end badly.

I’d spotted an apple tree and commented wistfully on how I loved making apple pie. Of course, Chen and Tao had immediately climbed up the tree and began picking apples. Then Chen had noticed I was still on the ground.

Sigh.

I suppose I was also at fault, I hadn’t wanted to admit my terrible fear of heights, especially to Chen of all people – childish, I know.

But he was like a bloodhound after a trail, and provoked me to the point that I had thrown all common sense out the window, and climbed the damn tree.

Double sigh.

It hadn’t been too bad while I was climbing, but then I’d happened to look down, and, Oh my god, everything be swaying like I’m drunk in the club – and not in a good way. All of a sudden the ground seemed to be a thousand miles away.

So, of course, I’d done the only logical thing, and wrapped myself around the nearest branch with my eyes closed, and refused to come down.

I drew in a shaky breath. ‘Guys, I’m not being funny or anything, but I think you’re going to have to call the firefighters, or possibly a helicopter.’

Now, both Tao and Chen were laughing hysterically. Great! I just love not being taken seriously when I’m in mortal danger.

Tao calmed down enough to suggest. ‘If you don’t wanna climb down, just jump and I’ll catch you.’

‘I’ve got a better idea, how about I take your belt AND STRANGLE YOU WITH IT,’ I shouted down, hysterically.

‘Cas, honestly, I’ll catch you. Don’t you trust me?’ asked Tao sounding like he was pouting.

‘No offense, but you’re not Aladdin, so no,’ I said tersely.

‘I’m going to have to agree with her on this one, bro,’ said Chen laughingly.

‘What!? Why?’ Tao exclaimed outraged.

‘Cause you drive like a maniac, and you use your sword to stab food that’s out of your reach at dinner,’ Chen obliged him with an answer and before Tao had time to react he turned back to me. ‘But he did have a point, Casey. I’m sure that between the two of us…well, surely, one of us is bound to catch you.’

‘Yeah, I feel so much more reassured now,’ I said, sarcastically.

‘Good! We’re finally getting through to you then,’ said Chen.

His voice sounded from right behind me, and I almost jumped out of my skin when I found him sitting right next to me.

‘How did you that!?’

‘Skills,’ said Chen smugly.

‘Don’t worry, Casey, we’ll help you down,’ said Tao.

I ventured a peek at him, and Tao smiled up at me reassuringly. I returned a somewhat wobbly smile.

I felt a hand on my arm. ‘Turn around, and put your arms around me. I’ll help you dangle from this branch so it’ll be easier for Tao to catch you. It’s really not that far down.’

‘For you maybe,’ I complained but I cautiously turned around to face him anyway.

I kept one arm around the tree tightly and slowly rested my other hand on the branch, and looked at Chen uncertainly.

‘It’s alright. I’m a lot stronger then I look – what with super strength and all. I won’t let you fall,’ he said with a smile.

I put one arm around him, and then with a little persuasion – okay, maybe a lot – I put my other arm around his waist. I panicked for a horrifying second, and hid my face against his chest, holding him tight.

‘No need to squeeze me to death,’ he complained, but I felt his hand stroke my hair comfortingly.

‘Stop being so nice to me,’ I mumbled against his shirt. ‘It’s weird.’

‘Duly noted,’ he laughed lightly.

After a slight pause, I added. ‘And for the record I never once thought you looked weak.’

‘Casey,’ he said, suddenly serious.

I looked up at him. ‘What?’

He squinted down at me. ‘Are you trying to seduce me?’

‘Chen?’

‘Yeah?’

‘Don’t be an idiot.’

‘It’s no fun if you react like that,’ he pouted.

I snorted.

‘Okay, now, you’re going to put your arms around my neck, and then you’re going to swing your left leg over this trunk, and I’m going to lower you as far down as possible, so Tao can grab you, okay?’

Okay!? Most definitely not okay!’

‘Oh, so you have a better idea. Let’s hear it then?’ said Chen.

I gave him a bitter look and reluctantly wound my arms around his neck. Our faces were pretty close and for the first time I noticed how long his eyelashes were.

‘Okay, good. Now bring your leg over to this side.’

I looked down and swallowed. ‘I think…I think I’m going to be sick.’

‘You’re not going to be sick. Just trust me. We won’t let you fall, I promise,’ said Chen patiently. ‘Don’t look down! Look at me.’

I looked away from the ground and did as he told me. I started bringing my left leg around slowly then - stopped.

‘It’s okay just let go. I’m holding you,’ said Chen.

I took a deep breath and dropped my leg from the branch so I was left dangling from it. I panicked when I just felt air all around me and started kicking my legs around and squirming to get back up.

‘Calm down, Casey. And whatever you do don’t look…dammit!’

I had looked down, and…fainted. Yes, I passed out cold like a complete ninny.

‘Got her!’ Tao’s voice very close.

When I came back to, the first thing I felt was a soft rocking motion. I opened my eyes and saw Tao smiling down at me. I realised he was carrying me in his arms back to the manor.

‘How are you feeling, sleeping beauty?’ asked Chen.

I looked to the side and saw him chewing on an apple, and swinging a whole bunch inside an impromptu basket, in the form of his hoodie, from his other hand.

‘You don’t have to carry me. I can walk,’ I said groggily.

‘No way! I’ll carry you. You gave me such a fright! I thought you’d died,’ said Tao.

‘Oh,’ I said while trying to wrap my head around how embarrassed I was feeling right now.

‘You should have seen me catch you, though. I was well cool, wasn’t I, gege? It was like a scene out of a movie,’ said Tao looking extremely pleased with himself.

‘Never one much for modesty, our Tao,’ commented Chen.

‘Thank you, Tao.’

Chen stopped mid-bite looking outraged. ‘You’re thanking him?’

‘And thank you, Chen. I owe you one, big time,’ I said gratefully. ‘You were both amazing.’

‘As long as you know,’ grumbled Chen, but there was a small smile playing around his mouth.

‘Sort of like knights?’ asked Tao hopefully.

‘Yes, like knights,’ I said with a smile.

‘Better then Aladdin?’ asked Tao.

‘Definitely!’

‘Tao?’ said Chen.

‘Yes, gege?’

‘Shut up! You’re giving me a rash.’

Tao pouted all the way back to the kitchen. He put me down gently on a chair.

‘I never knew anyone could be that scared of heights,’ he commented wonderingly.

I went red with embarrassment. ‘My mum sent me to counselling for it when I was a kid because I couldn’t even cross a bridge – it didn’t help much.’

‘Wow! That really sucks,’ said Tao.

‘It’s not a big deal. Anyway, let’s get started on this apple pie. It’ll be faster if you guys help me peel and slice the apples…and no, Tao, you’re not allowed to use your sword.’

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

‘What’s that wonderful smell?’ asked a voice from the doorway.

I turned around to see Minseok walk into the kitchen followed by Jongin.

‘It’s apple pie. Chen and I helped Casey make it,’ Tao informed them happily.

‘And no one gets to eat it unless they helped,’ said Chen.

Minseok’s face fell almost comically.

‘Ignore him. Of course you can have some. There’s more than enough for everybody,’ I told Minseok.

Minseok beamed at me.

‘I think you’ve just made his day,’ said Jongin, laughingly.

‘So what did you guys do today?’ asked Minseok sitting down next to Tao, and pulling a plate towards him.

‘Well let’s see,’ began Chen in a sing song voice with a mischievous gleam in his eyes. ‘First, Casey and I sat up on a tree. K-I-S-S-I-N-G.’

‘For heaven’s sake!’ I said exasperated.

‘Just kidding! We only looked deeply into each other’s eyes, and then she wrapped her arms around my neck and we held on to each other - like, for a really long time,’ said Chen, with a wink in my direction.

Tao stared at him wonderingly. ‘Wow! When you say it like that it sounds pretty intense.’

‘It was intense, wasn’t it, Casey?’ asked Chen with an innocent look in my direction.

I squinted at Chen in disbelief - I was going to kill him!

Minseok was looking at us in some amusement. I looked quickly at Jongin who didn’t look one bit as amused as he stared darkly at Chen.

‘I also carried Casey bridal style all the way back here,’ contributed Tao.

I could have groaned out loud. Jongin’s expression turned to one of confusion as he looked between us.

‘Wait! Did all this actually happen?’ asked Jongin incredulously as he looked to me for an explanation.

‘Well, yes,’ I said glaring at Chen as he began to laugh hysterically. ‘But it’s definitely not what it sounds like.’

‘This is getting good,’ said Minseok, around a mouthful of pie as he watched us keenly.

It’s not what it sounds like!?’ repeated Jongin in disbelief. He closed his eyes and took a deep breath. ‘Okay, it’s okay. I trust you. I just don’t trust him, so please, elaborate.’

I shot Chen a look that promised a thousand painful deaths, but before I could say anything else, Tao broke in with, ‘Casey was really scared, so she fainted from the tree, and I caught her.’

‘Tao, you idiot! I wanted to see her flounder through an explanation,’ said Chen looking disappointed.

‘But that’s mean,’ said Tao. ‘Don’t worry, Casey, I got your back.’

Chen rolled his eyes.

‘You – what!?’ exclaimed Jongin looking alarmed.

I somehow managed to explain to him what had happened earlier – even with Chen’s constant interjections of how I had “gasped with gratitude and helplessly buried my face in his shirt”, or “seduced him with my tear filled eyes” or, my personal favourite, “swooned in his arms”.

‘Who would have thought that going for a walk in the garden could be so dangerous,’ commented Minseok, much to Tao and Chen’s general hilarity.

‘Come with me,’ said Jongin, suddenly grabbing my hand and pulling me out of the kitchen.

He dragged me away, until we were well out of earshot, and into a small alcove half hidden behind a tapestry of a pack of wolves.

‘Jongin, don’t listen to Chen. You know what he’s like,’ I said exasperated only to find myself wrapped tightly in an embrace.

‘I missed you,’ said Jongin against my neck. ‘I just wanted to get you away from everyone, and have you to myself for a bit.’

I felt my cheeks grow warm and my heart beat faster as a thrill of happiness shot through me.

‘Don’t just randomly spout mushy stuff, idiot,’ I said gruffly trying not to grin – and failing miserably.

‘Then don’t just randomly go fainting from trees, idiot,’ he retorted softly.

He kissed my forehead, then the tip of my nose, and then finally he cupped my cheeks and kissed me on the lips. No matter how many times he kissed me I always felt like I was about to suffer major heart failure. Everything in me just leapt into overdrive. I had thought the feeling would eventually fade, but if anything it had just gotten worse.

I leaned against him and wrapped my arms around his neck. He pressed me back against the wall and threaded his fingers through my hair. His lips were so incredibly soft against mine that I couldn’t help myself, and gently bit his lower lip.

He pulled back in surprise and touched his lip.

‘Sorry,’ I apologised.

‘No, I like it,’ he said with a wicked grin. ‘It’s like you’re marking me as yours.’

‘There you go again, saying unnecessary stuff,’ I said breathlessly.

Jongin bent his head and brushed his lips against mine slowly and then…

‘Sorry to interrupt,’ I looked up to find Chen leaning against the entrance not looking sorry at all. ‘But Junmyeon wants to speak to you.’

I wondered belatedly if he had some sort of a death wish. Jongin punched the wall next to my head, making me jump, and threw Chen a look that would have had a smarter man running for cover, but Chen obviously didn’t qualify because he just stood there with the most annoying smirk on his face ever.

‘I think you better go, Jongin,’ I said trying to avoid a murder from occurring.

He swept an impatient hand through his hair and sighed. ‘Yeah, okay.’

He grabbed my chin and planted a hard kiss on my mouth. Chen wolf whistled and I could feel a blush creeping up my cheeks. Jongin left looking very pleased with himself, while Chen wiggled his brows suggestively at me, before following him.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Two days later, I was in the library when I heard a commotion outside. I ran out of the library, and followed the sound down the hallway. When I rounded the corner I stopped dead at the scene that met my eyes.

Chanyeol looking frantic as he carried a blood soaked Baekhyun in his arms, and Kyungsoo leading the way with a grim look on his face.

‘Baekhyun!’ I cried, running forward.

‘He’s not dead, just unconscious, but we need to stop the bleeding as quickly as possible,’ said Kyungsoo, seriously. ‘Chanyeol, set him down on the dining room table. The infirmary is too far.’  

I ran ahead and pushed everything off the table.

‘Wait a sec,’ I told Chanyeol.

I ran to a chest of drawers in the corner, pulled out a clean white tablecloth, and set it on the table.

Chanyeol laid Baekhyun down as gently as he could.

‘There’s so much blood,’ I said hoarsely feeling like I had just walked into some kind of nightmare.

Kyungsoo strode back into the room carrying a medical kit.

‘Do you know if Yixing is back yet, Casey?’ asked Kyungsoo.

‘I’m the only one here,’ I answered, tremulously.

Baekhyun moaned and his eyelids fluttered open.

‘Baek!’ I said grabbing his hand.

Chanyeol stared down at him anxiously. ‘Don’t worry, buddy, we’re going to fix you right up.’

‘I’m not worried. I would have been worried if I’d have had to carry your 6 ft1 ass back here instead of the other way round,’ said Baekhyun with a grimace. ‘And don’t look so worried you two, I’ve had worse… though nothing comes to mind at the minute.’

Kyungsoo was laying out some pretty scary looking instruments on the table.

‘What happened?’ I asked.

‘We walked into a trap. We were completely unprepared. Baekhyun got shot twice. He knocked his head on the floor and passed out,’ Kyungsoo answered emotionlessly as he filled a syringe with transparent liquid.

‘Oh, so that’s what happened. I’d been wandering myself,’ commented Baekhyun, a tad too cheerfully.

‘Don’t be so bloody blasé about this – you could have died,’ I said without any real heat as I tucked a lock of stray hair behind his ear.

‘One of you cut his shirt off, and clean out the wounds,’ ordered Kyungsoo then he turned to Baekhyun with a grim look on his face. ‘I’m going to give you some morphine but you’ve got two iron bullets in you. You know what that means, right?’

Baekhyun nodded.

‘No. No, I don’t. What does that mean?’ I asked.

‘It means that any pain relief is next to useless until the bullets have been extracted. Iron is like poison to us. He’s going to feel everything,’ said Chanyeol quietly.

I looked at Kyungsoo in horror. ‘There must be something else we can give him?’

Baekhyun tugged my hand down. ‘It’s alright, Cas…don’t worry.’

I noticed how pasty his skin had gone and the sweat beading his forehead.

‘Believe me, there is nothing else,’ said Kyungsoo, firmly but not unkindly. ‘And if we don’t get them out quickly they’re going to infect, and make him very ill. I’m pretty sure they didn’t hit anything vital, so when Lay gets back he should be able to heal him pretty well.’

Chanyeol was already cutting Baekhyun’s shirt down the middle and peeling it away.

‘Whoa! Shouldn’t you like, buy me dinner first,’ joked Baekhyun weakly.

Chanyeol snorted and passed me a wet cloth that Kyungsoo had brought from the kitchen along with a bowl of hot water. I blanked as I stared at all the blood leaking from the hole in his shoulder and the other one lower down near his waist.

‘It probably looks worse than it feels – ah!’ groaned Baekhyun as Chanyeol started wiping around his shoulder wound.

‘Clearly,’ I said, dryly.

I started dabbing around his other wound as gently as possible, but I could tell it hurt him.

‘Ok, that’s enough! Bite down on this, Baekhyun,’ ordered Kyungsoo placing a strap of leather in front of Baekhyun’s mouth.

Baekhyun sighed and took the leather between his teeth. Kyungsoo glanced at me. ‘I think you better leave the room. You’re not used to this.’

‘I’m not going anywhere,’ I said looking him dead in the eye.

Kyungsoo smiled slightly and nodded. Baekhyun looked like he was going to protest but I just shot him a look that brooked no arguments.

If Baekhyun could suffer through this pain then I could bloody well handle at least this much.

‘Hold him down, Chanyeol,’ said Kyungsoo.

Kyungsoo started cutting into the wound with practiced precision. Baekhyun went rigid and closed his eyes.

‘It’s going to be alright,’ said Chanyeol softly.

‘I can see it,’ said Kyungsoo triumphantly. ‘I’m almost…’

Suddenly Kyungsoo went still and his face paled. A sense of dread uncoiled itself and settled in the pit of my stomach. Chanyeol looked up then did a double take as he noticed the look on Kyungsoo’s face. I swallowed past the knot in my throat.

‘What is it?’ I asked, not really wanting to hear the answer to that.

Baekhyun’s eyes snapped open and he stared at Kyungsoo questioningly. Kyungsoo shook his head in disgust and looked at Baekhyun. ‘The good news is I can still get it out. The bad news is you’re screwed.’

‘Well, don’t sugar coat it for him!’ I snapped, trying to cover up the fact that I was about two seconds away from throwing up from nerves.

‘What’s wrong, Soo?’ asked Chanyeol worriedly.

‘This bullet was designed in a way that when it entered his body it shattered and released… what I can only assume is liquid iron, into his blood stream,’ said Kyungsoo. ‘It’s actually quite ingenious.’

Ingenious? Really! I’m busy dying here, and you’re admiring their craftsmanship!?’ said Baekhyun indignantly, and then he gasped, and went deathly pale.

‘Ah. That must be the iron spreading in your blood stream. And you’re not going to die…you’re just going to be in a lot of pain,’ said Kyungsoo.

‘Well, that’s a relief!’ muttered Baekhyun, sarcastically. ‘Yeollie, bring me the strongest whisky in the mini bar.’

‘That’s not going to-‘ began Kyungsoo.

Believe me – it’ll help,’ interrupted Baekhyun.

‘Okay, let’s get this show on the road,’ said Kyungsoo grimly. ‘You ready, Baek?’

Baekhyun took a swig from the bottle of whisky and grinned. ‘I was born ready.’

He bit into the leather once more and braced himself.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I stared down at the floor unseeingly, my arms braced on my knees and my head resting against them tiredly.

The sleeping form of Baekhyun lay a few feet away in his bed. After three hours and a half, of agonizing horror, we had finally managed to get a hold of Lay, and he had come back immediately, and succeeded in healing Baek just enough that he was able to sleep.

‘Why don’t you go get some rest, Casey?’ asked Chanyeol.

I looked over at him sprawled in an armchair next to Baekhyun.

‘It’s okay. I’m fine,’ I said.

‘No offense but you look wrecked. I’ll look after him,’ said Chanyeol with a kind smile.

When I didn’t answer him straight away, he sighed and said. ‘At least go get cleaned up. ‘

I looked down at my ruined clothes, they were soaked through with blood and in some places where the blood had dried it was sticking to my skin. I must look a fright – but then again, so did Chanyeol. I sighed in defeat, partly because a bath did sound heavenly right now, and mostly because I was pretty sure I was one wrong word away from bursting into tears and I rather not do that in front of anyone.  

A loud thunder of steps sounded outside in the corridor and the door swung open as Tao came busting into the room like a tornado. His face fell when his gaze landed on Baekhyun.

‘How…how is he?’

‘He’s going to be fine. We just had a few unpleasant surprises that will slow down his recovery, but Lay said he’s going to be okay,’ answered Chanyeol.

Tao made a jerky motion with his head then turned on his heel and stormed out of the room. I looked at Chanyeol and he shrugged.

I meandered down the corridors with the intention of going to my room but somehow I ended up outside in the gardens. I took a deep breath and tried to dispel the terrible images playing behind my eyes.

Baekhyun screaming. His body bucking off the table as the iron burned in his veins. Kyungsoo’s blade cutting into his flesh again, and again, as he tried to dig out all the shattered pieces.

I took another deep breath, and stiffened when I heard a muffled noise. I took a step in the direction the noise was coming from and followed it around the corner of the house.

I froze as I caught sight of Tao crouching with his back to the wall. His face was in his hands and his shoulders were shaking. I realised with some shock that he was crying.

I really wanted to comfort him but I felt that he might not appreciate my company at the moment. Just as I was about to turn away, his head snapped up.

His eyes were red rimmed as he looked up at me, a myriad of emotions crossed his face before he looked down at his hands again, his shoulders slumping dejectedly.

I walked over and sat down next to him.

‘Don’t worry, Tao. He’s going to be fine,’ I said, and was proud when my voice didn’t waver.

I put my hand on his shoulder gently, and he flinched. I quickly pulled my hand away. I started to wonder if he was upset about something more. I sat silent, waiting for him to make the next move, at least he knew I was there if he wanted to talk.

‘Do you really believe that?’ he asked quietly, his eyes fixed on his hands.

I was about to reassure him but something in his tone made me pause. I stared at him, and for some reason a feeling of dread swept over me. But then he looked up and smiled.

‘I’m sorry. I’ve freaked you out,’ he said, with none of the grimness that had been there before. ‘I can be a bit dramatic sometimes.’

After muttering something about Junmyeon needing him and whining about how overworked he was, he stood up and left. It was almost like I had imagined the desperation on his face.

I just deleted my Tinder profile. I’ve been having some issues with mania this past week and have been engaging in really risky activities. I met up w/ a few sketch people and it ended pretty badly. I’m alright, but it was a pretty intense situation. Anyway, I’ve removed the temptation and i don’t really care, except I was matched with one guy I really liked, so the idea that I’m not gonna talk to him for a while is kinda sad. Oh well

At the very of the very last Fantastic Beasts film they make, I want there to be a cut scene in the credits of Platform 9 ¾. There’s a young Remus Lupin nervously trying to figure out what to do with his luggage. Sirius Black is off to one side being lectured one last time about how he’d better maintain the family tradition of being sorted into Slytherin. Peter Petigrew trips over his own feet and falls flat on his face. Then Lily Evans comes barreling through the crowd dragging Severus Snape by the arm behind her. She is SO excited. Even Severus seems cautiously optimistic. Then Lily runs into James Potter and falls over his trunk. James makes some snotty, snide comment about how she and her greasy friend ought to watch where they’re going. Then Lily stands up and punches James in the face, blackening one of his eyes.

Cut to black. The credits continue to roll.

The Most Dangerous Island on Earth - North Sentinel Island

Throughout human history a typical theme has been the domination of more technologically advanced societies over “simpler” or “more primitive” ones. In fact in the past 500 years, European societies would come to dominate the world, spreading their culture, often through force of arms or outright genocide.  More often than not, the meeting of Old World peoples with New World natives tended to end very badly for the natives. Many cultures were wiped out, many more assimilated or adapted their cultures with European culture. Today there are few places where people living have not in some way been touched by the modern world. One notable exception is North Sentinel Island, located in the Bay of Bengal.

Officially North Sentinel Island is territory of India, part of the Andaman Islands. In reality the people of North Sentinel Island are their own people, free from any known government or modern organization.  Apparently, the Sentinelese are very much happy to keep it that way. Throughout their entire known history, the Sentinelese have been known to viciously fight against any trespass or incursion on their small island. Going back to ancient times the Indians called the island “Cannibal Island”, and told many tales of the dangerous and ruthless natives who inhabited it. Those tales were passed on to the ancient Greeks after the invasion of northern India by Alexander the Great, and thus the infamous legends of the island were mention by Ptolemy. Marco Polo recieved word of the island during his travels to China, writing about the islanders, “They are a most violent and cruel generation who seem to eat everybody they catch.” 

Since then, every expedition to island has been met with extreme hostility, and as a result the island has been left untouched to this day. Throughout the 16th-18th centuries many an explorer or shipwrecked sailor met their end on the island at the hands of the Sentinelese. In 1867 a British merchant ship shipwrecked on the island, and its surviivg 110 man crew spent several days fighting off the islanders with guns and swords. Many were killed and wounded in the battle before rescue. This prompted an expedition of reprisal by the Royal Navy who landed marines on the island a short time later. Most of the Sentinelese had disappeared into hiding, knowing that they couldn’t fight a battle against such overwhelming force. In the end the British left in frustration with two elderly Sentinelese and four children.

Today the idea of angry natives attacking shipwrecked sailors or explorers might be something you’d only see in a Pirates of the Caribbean movie, however Sentinelese resistance to the outside world continued so that even in the 20th century people tended to steer clear of the island. In 1974 a film crew from National Geographic landed on the island in modern boats in an attempt to make contact with the islanders with peace offerings of a box of coconuts, a baby doll, and a live pig. The Sentinelese met the crew fully armed and ready for war. As a result, a the National Geographic director took an arrow to the knee, the pig was mutilated alive, and the crew was forced to bug out under a hail of arrows and spears. 

In 1981 the cargo ship Primrose shipwrecked on the island, and the Sentinelese immediately surrounded the ship, shooting at the crew with bows and several times attempting to board the ship. The crew not only radioed for help, but asked for an urgent airdrop of firearms so they could defend themselves. The drop was delayed by weather but the crew were able to fend off the attacks with a pistol, firefighting axes, and flare guns. They were rescued after a week long siege. The Sentinelese dismantled much of the ship and used the scrap iron for arrow and spearheads. It’s remaining hull can still be seen from google earth.

The only known man to peacefully visit the island was an anthropologist named Trilokinath Prandit in 1991, who several times landed on the island with gifts which he left upon the beach.  When he did meet the natives they shot arrows at him and waved their genitals at him. However at one point he was able to make peaceful contact with some of the natives. However as as he left the island, the natives had a change of heart and began shooting arrows at him once more, he hasn’t been back since.

Today North Sentinelese Island is protected by the Indian Government and it is illegal to land there. The reasons for this are to keep the Sentinelese culture intact, and prevent the spread of disease from the island. Note that in history native peoples often suffered deadly diseases after making contact with newcomers. Another reason for creating a 3 mile exclusionary zone around the island is because in 2006 two drunk fisherman landed on the island and were murdered. Thus the Indian Government set up the contact ban to protect outsiders from the Sentinelese as much as protecting the Sentinelese from the outside world. In 2004 an Indian Coast Guard helicopter flew over the island to see if the Setinelese were OK after the 2004 Indian Ocean Earthquake, and to offer help if needed. The helicopter found that the Sentinelese were not only OK after the tsunami, but didn’t want anything any aid at all as they fired arrows at the helicopter.

 Today we still no nothing about the language, culture, and ethnicity of the Sentinelese Islanders. The only pictures we have of them are from the occasional illegal drone which buzzes over the island, and is typically met with a hail of arrows. It seems that despite seeing things such as ships, helicopters, and robotic drones, the Sentinelese don’t want fuck all to do with the modern world.

@ MLM guys who are in their teens/early twenties

• Don’t worry if you haven’t had a boyfriend yet
• Don’t get hung up on the idea of having a high school/college sweetheart like in the movies
• Don’t pressure yourself to have a relationship with someone who isn’t your type just because you want to be with somebody

Literature and the media glorifies the idea of young love so much that it can make you believe that you should have some kind of romance as part of your teen/young adult years. But you don’t. There is no timeline for love.

Both Yuris’ Relationship

Ok but can we talk about how Viktor and Yurio didn’t want Yuuri to retire so Viktor basically told Yurio to win so Yuuri wouldn’t retire?  

I already read some YOI meta about Yuri’s and Yurio’s relationship but this just confirmed I wasn’t the only thinking this: Yurio is actually fond of Yuuri but he doesn’t express it the right way. Or at least he doesn’t know how to express it. Yurio is an emotional rollercoaster. I get it he’s an angsty teen, has a hard past and I know he communicates….not the necessarily right way he still manages to piss me off and then make me smile. Coming back to the topic  I’m pretty sure Yurio didn’t want Yuuri to retire either.

 Even though Yurio told Yuuri to retire at the beginning of the series as seen above I’m sure he didn’t mean it seriously. He actually cares for Yuuri and I know Yurio has been keeping tabs on Yuri’s career as seen in other episodes I have no screenshots for this. It always bothered me since the beginning of the series why Yurio was the only one to acknowledge Yuuri and then episode 12 happened and it was confirmed that Yurio looks up to Yuuri. he noticed Yuuri since the last GPF 

He actually cares for Yuuri even though he shows it in a weird way. I love how Yurio gets his motivation through anger not the best method XD but it gives him a goal set by Viktor. Viktor knows that if Yurio wins Yuuri can’t retire 

Both Viktor and Yurio want to skate with Yuuri and I just wanted to talk about how these characters’ relationships work. Yurio looks up to Yuuri and he knows that Viktor was sad that Yuuri might retire so Yurio gave his best in order for that not to happen.

keith why
  • ((Lance and Keith have been dating for a while now))
  • Keith: So, um, Lance, I've been thinking, and, we've been like, dating for a while now, so I think- of course, you don't have to say yes, but- I think it's time for us to move on to the next step.
  • Lance: And that is?
  • Lance: (in his head) BOYFRIENDS BOYFRIENDS BOYFRIENDS
  • Keith: Um, space ranger pardners.

  • Keith:
  • Keith: Y'ain't being too kind 'bout this, y'know?
  • Lance: ENGLISH, KEITH, ENGLISH!

In light of recent Holby City spoilers I currently feel like trash because I’m kinda really excited?!?
Obviously I’m not some kind of sadist, but the thought of CR & JR having something so dramatic to sink their talented teeth into thrills me. Oh and call me naive- but I truly think Holby City will dodge the death trope for Berena, and things may be angsty as hell but it’s storytelling and it’s air time for our ship and it’s a platform for our two faves to shine. Bring it on.
(I’ll be crying and screaming whilst the ep airs but I’m kinda trash for this-sorry)

voltron season 3 episode predictions
  • shiro falls out of the ceiling tiles and into allura’s arms, along with 15 armed rebels and a couple of vegetables from earth. the entire episode is just him screaming, allura screaming, the paladins screaming, and the black lion kicking them all out. they never really figure out how exactly shiro got into the ceiling tiles but shiro says it has something to do with the vegtables.
  • the reunion episode between matt holt and shiro is just a complicationed dance routine with sam and pidge looking on in a mixture of shame and contempt. it has been months since they last saw each other. how do they know this. the entire dance is just the whole episode.
  • lotor is just a tiny alien in a huge mech suit, and once the paladins figure that out they put him in a glass jar and now hes a decortive item in the castle. the joke is that youre supposed to move it every time you see him to freak out someone. this ends badly as keith once woke up with it shoved down his shirt, and all of lance’s creams got replaced by several bad duplications of the jar. pidge is a master at this game as they can crawl through vents and place the jar of screaming prince lotor anywhere undetetced. 
  • shiro’s makeup bag gets replaced by alien substances and winds up geting posioned because he used some crushed berries as eyeliner, and the episode is him runnin though the castle, arm activated and destroying a couple of walls looking for his damned eyeliner. allura helps.
  • hunk and pidge are working on shiros arm (which needed maintenance or something) and they discover it can be turned into any body part. they accidently turn it into a foot and cant change it back so its just shiro walking around the castle like normal only its a foot.
  • the cow, which had wandered off on its own in the castle, gets an entire episode thats just from the cow’s point of view. it raids the kitchen at night and loves the food goo. it crawls though the vents and often scares the heck out of pidge. it has a collection of stuff it stole, like several of keiths knifes, lances moisturizer, a rolling stones album, several pens and socks, an entire altean ballgown, and coran’s ponytail bands. prince lotor in a jar eventually winds up in it but no one cares.
  • lance does DOFA deez nuts on allura at least once. the episode consists of pidge and lance memeing the other paladins. 
  • at one point someone adopts an alien cat. it hates hunk but loves keith. keith hates it and hunk loves it.
  • “every time you kill zarkon, theres a tinier zarkon that you can kill eaiser behind it. after you kill the last one, you become a god.” “lance put the redbull coffee down and put your shirt back on before i throw you into the pool.”
  • hunk swears, and everyone just stares. they suspect that hes a galra in disguise and try to anbush him while hes making cookies.
  • the paladins get into another time loop only when they get out of it, shiro and matt are 10 year olds, hunk lance and keith are maybe 4, and pidge is an infant. the episode is just allura, coran, and samuel holt just taking care of the children with their giant robot cats that also seemed to revert to kittens. lotor in a jar makes an appearence but its just him screaming for a couple minutes.
