and when i say a little

We're okay.

Betty had a way about her, something in her warm green eyes that made every single thing that came out of her mouth make sense. Every time she spoke he believed her. She wouldn’t lie, she wouldn’t hurt him. So when she told him he was okay, he had no choice but to believe her.

He could still remember the first time, those two words had come out of her pretty little heart shaped mouth. He had been six years old and was playing in the sandbox at recess, his favorite action figure destroying the sandcastle he had built, Archie was off somewhere getting a drink from the water fountain when Reggie Mantle approached Jughead, an ugly smirk on his adolescent face.

“What are you doing jerkhead?” Reggie had laughed, reaching for the toy

“It’s Jughead” he pouted pulling his G.I Joe out of the grumpy boys reach.

“Well I say it’s jerkhead and I want your doll.”

Jughead and Reggie fought and tugged on the little army man, before Reggies eyes lit up and he released the doll, sending it flying into Jugheads face, the edge of its head smashing directly into his nose. He could see the blood streaming out and he wanted to cry.

Reggies eyes got wide and he almost looked sorry before he ran off “you wanted it back” he shouted over his shoulder. Jughead was panicking, there was so much blood and he felt the tears well in his eyes,
suddenly a pretty blonde girl with a light blue flowery dress was kneeling in front of him and digging in her backpack

“That Reggie Mantle is such a butt face, I saw him throw that toy at you.” She pulled out a tiny pink pack of tissues and with her little six year old fingers she tilted his head back a little, placing the tissue under his nose and holding it over him.

“I’m Betty Cooper, I know you can’t really talk but that’s okay, because I already know you’re Jughead Jones, you’re Archie’s friend, he’s my neighbor.” Quickly lifting the napkin she took a peek at his nose and smiled satisfied

“That wasn’t so bad, quicker than most nose bleeds! You’ve got one tough nose.” She smiled softly and giggled, balling the tissue up and putting it in her used up brown paper bag.
Jughead just stared at her, he couldn’t believe what had just happened, an old tear betrayed him and fell down his cheek.

Little Betty Cooper brushed a finger over his cheek and smiled so sweetly he felt his heart ache

“You’re okay.”

With that she skipped away and headed over to play with Kevin Keller.

That hadn’t been the last time she had uttered those words to him in times of stress.

The day his mother left, he had borrowed Fred Andrews ladder and climbed the Beautiful Blondes window, tear stained cheeks and missing beanie she had held him in her bed as he cried, rubbing his back and whispering softly in his ear. Later that night as he was climbing out her window, all cried out and filled with Betty’s infamous “Broken Heart Brownies” she had wrapped a hand around his wrist and looked him straight in the eyes.

“You’re okay.”

He simply nodded, just like had that first time.

And then there was the time that he had confessed his true feelings for his gorgeous best friend through a kiss in her bedroom after an insane weekend.

He had been a bundle of nerves, pulling away, his chest pounding and fingers shaking at the thought of losing his best friend over his own selfish behavior
But she had just placed her forehead against his and smiled

“Hey, you’re okay.” And captured his lips with her own.

So that brought them to today, walking through the trailer park, his fathers dark secret revealed by his own best friend, the anxiety he felt at having to explain his families choices, the fear he felt at losing Betty over something he couldn’t control.

But she was there, beside him, assuring him that it didn’t matter, telling him she believed in him, and after he had brought her in for a searing love filled kiss she had breathlessly pulled away and he smiled, whispering against her lips in utter relief

“We’re okay.”

lucia-ik  asked:

omg drunk keith is so cute. what would happen if keith got drunk for the first time infornt of the kids when they are teen. Somehow I think lance would have blast/could not believe that this is his daddy. And would it escalate if Shiro wasn't there?(Keith doesn't seem to have any impulse control when drunk) btw I love the little knb picture when I go to your askbox it's adorable!

LMAO Yes! Drunk Keith is worse than Shiro tbh. XD 

[The Voltron Family]  Shiro was away to attend one of those conferences for doctors outside of the state and Keith was missing him so bad. It has been 8 days now and Keith didn’t wanna be clingy but sometimes he just missed Shiro’s kisses and cuddles.

The kids were at a party of a friend of theirs and it was only 9pm but Keith drove there anyway to pick them up, despite saying he’d pick them up at 10, they were teens now after all. They earned it after acing all their exams. Keith arrived at the party and he entered frowning. Ugh. Teenagers are too rowdy at parties. Back in my days…crap, I sound like an old man.

He went looking for his three kids when some dude came up to him.

Some Dude: *offers a cup of beer* Whoa. You’re a new pretty face. Might I offer you some beer?
Keith: *glares* I’m a wine type of person and I’m old enough to be your father.
Some Dude: *chuckles* Right. Of course. I’m guessing you’re about 25 or 27 by the looks of it? *gives Keith a once over* *points at the leather jacket* *whistles* Nice.
Keith: *ignores* Where’s Lance, Pidge and Hunk? *looks around*
Some Dude: They’re by the library last time I saw them. 
Keith: Thanks. *leaves*
Some Dude: Hey! I have wine. Can’t have a guest walking around without a drink of their choice. *smiles*
Keith: *stops* Do you have 1947 Cheval Blanc?
Some Dude: *blinks* What? I have no idea what you’re talking about but we could check it out by the bar? *points at the bar* The bartender might know. *eyes Keith* You looked so stressed, man. You okay?
Keith: *sighs* I am the epitome of stress. 
Some Dude: Awww, sorry for hitting on you, man.
Keith: It’s fine.
Some Dude: I’m Leonard. Finals are over but you’re probably the type to stress over results, huh? Forget about it tonight. C’mon, let’s get you a drink. You need it. *places an arm around Keith’s shoulder*
Keith: Oh boy, do I. *rubs temples* 

Lance, Hunk and Pidge were about to leave the house to wait for their Daddy Keith to arrive to pick them up when Pidge spotted something.

Pidge: Oh sweet baby mac and cheese. Is that Dad by the bar?
Hunk and Lance: *turns around and sees Keith*

Keith was drunk and he was ranting and ranting to their poor friend Leonard who had to hear everything. The three teens approached the bar.

Keith: And then he would usually surprise me to a lunch date when he visits me at work. *sobs while taking another drink* Such a wonderful man and now… *hiccups* He’s not even here with me. 
Leonard: Oh damn. You have a bad case of love sickness.
Keith: *nods* I do and I hate the fact he’s out there somewhere miles away and I’m here like a mess. *turns to his side and sees a girl* *cups her face and leans in*
Hunk: Is Dad drunk?! *shocked* He would NEVER do THAT! 
Pidge: Dude, we gotta do something!
Lance: No no, wait, you guys. Let’s see what happens first. *amused* I’ve never seen Daddy Keith drunk—ever.
Girl: *smirks at Keith* Hey, pretty boy.
Keith: *scrunches his nose* Pretty boy. You’re not Shiro. *frowns* He calls me pretty boy when we snuggle at night. *cries* *hugs the girl* I miss him so much. I want to see him. *turns to another person* Do you know where Shiro is? He’s the most beautiful man I’ve ever seen. Have you seen him?
Pidge: Wow. He got drunk because of Daddy Shiro.
Keith: *gets up from his seat* *wobbles as he walks towards the dance floor*
Hunk: Uh, guys, should we do something now?
Keith: *walks randomly to every guy and cups their face to look at them* *shakes head* Nope. Not Shiro. Not you. Too short. Too tall. Too lanky. Not my type. Leave. 
Lance: Are you guys seeing this? *laughs* This is GOLD. 
Hunk: No. This is horrifying! Daddy Keith’s so broken.
Some other random dude: *walks up to Keith dancing* Hey, sexy.
Keith: *glares at him* What are you doing?
Some other random dude: *chuckles* Thought we could have some fun tonight. *touches Keith’s arm*
Keith: *grips the guy’s hand* Don’t. You. Dare. Touch. Me. Only one man can touch me.
Some other random dude: *grins* Shit, that’s hot. I could be that—
Pidge: Dad! *shouts and approaches Keith*
Keith: *turns head* *smiles* Oh, baby girl. I came looking for you and *sees Lance and Hunk* your brothers.
Some other random dude: *looks at the three teens* Hey, I saw him first.
Keith: No, you didn’t. *glares* Shiro saw me first.  
Some other random dude: Who the heck is Shiro? 
Hunk, Lance and Pidge: Our Dad.
Keith: My husband.
Some other random dude: What the shit, dude? You’re married?!
Keith: I am. *teary eyed* And I miss him. I miss my husband. *sobs as he wipes his tears* I… *walks wobbling*
Hunk: I got you, Dad. *catches Keith and embraces him*
Keith: *sobs* I miss Takashi Shirogane. Bring me Takashi Shirogane. I love Takashi Shirogane. *clings to Hunk*

Hunk drove them all back home and they put Keith to bed. The following morning, Pidge handed him the phone. Shiro was on Skype.

Shiro: Hey, sweetheart. Good morning.
Keith: Shiro. *whispers*
Shiro: I heard what happened last night. *frowns*
Keith: Oh my god. *groans* 
Shiro: *chuckles* Hey, I think it’s nice to know you rejected everyone’s advances because they weren’t me.
Keith: *whispers not looking at Shiro* I only want you.
Shiro: *flushes* Keith, you’re not playing fair.
Keith: It’s true though.
Shiro: Why don’t we go out tonight on a date?
Keith: *shocked* *looks up* Tonight?
Shiro: *smiles* Yeah, I’m coming home, pretty boy.

That little show that could

Bones ends tonight. And I thought I was prepared for it. When they announced that this season would be the last one I wasn’t surprised, and I was kind of relieved that at least we were having one last season to say goodbye. But I think it never really sank in that BONES. WAS. ENDING.

This is the show that has been with me for 12 years. The show that taught me what fandoms were and that introduced me to the world of tv shows. And as much I can like other shows, Bones has been a constant in my life. It was always there, It was able to cheer me on bad days, to make me cry, to really fall in love with these characters. To show me what a real OTP was.

And it really annoys me how people aren’t able to see past the fact that it is a procedural. How they weren’t able to see the cast full of strong and independent women, or the plots that were able to touch in such a wonderful and delicate ways issues like transexuality, animal violence, rape, religion vs science, foster care… And at the same time Bones could be much more funnier that many comedies.

12 seasons is an amazing run for a show, but it doesn’t make the ending hurt any less. Specially when you felt that this show hasn’t been recognised enough, sometimes not even by its own network. But I’m glad for the Bones family; cast, crew and fandom. Because we have loved this show so much that we have been able to keep it on the air for 12 years. And even when my focus has drifted to other shows at times, I have always been proud of being part of this wonderful fandom.

So I just want to say thank you. Thank you all for being here supporting this show. And we are not going anywhere… this is just an hiatus until we make the revival happen.

So, since @queergirlwriting doesn’t currently have asks open(which obviously is more than fine) I’ll just leave this here so you can still see it.
I was really anxious and being pulled into my depression last night, and aside from the few minutes of Sanvers that we got, the episode kind of made it worse? But then, I stayed up later than usual and read your fix it fics, and I actually felt a little bit better. So, I want to say thank you, J. Your fics help in so many ways, and I feel like saying thank you isn’t nearly enough. Especially when you’re always so busy and doing so many things, and even staying up until 3am just to write fics for us. I really appreciate that I came across your blog, because nights like last night (and even days like today) I don’t know what I’d do without that little bit of happiness to make me feel a little better, and I’m thankful that I know you. I hope you’re taking it as easy as possible today, and taking care of yourself.

BTS reaction to being in a relationship with an honest and skinship loving girlfriend

requested by anon

Seokjin

He would appreciate your honesty so much, but would hold back with the skinship in public places. He seems more like the type of guy who would reserve the act of kissing and touching each other for when you are alone.

“I feel like kissing, but we’ll wait until we’re home, okay?”

Originally posted by hohbi

Yoongi

As he seems like an honest person as well, not holding back on what he thinks, as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone, he would appreciate your honesty as well. Every time you see each other or say goodbye he gives you a kiss, lingering a little longer since he enjoys your love for skinship, but also knows his limits.

“I’d do so much more than just kiss, but I think the hyungs would say something if we do it in the studio.”

Originally posted by hidden--demons

Namjoon

Namjoon would feel like he yould always rely on you telling him the truth about what you think. I feel like he would be more open to skinship in public, always holding you close, giving you kisses throughout the day whenever you’re together, and so on.

“I love how you always know what to say. You’ll get a kiss for that.”

Originally posted by melolagniaphilia

Hoseok

Hobi loves skinship and combined with an honest personality? He’d be all over you, making sure you always feel his love through hugs, kisses and more hugs, no matter where you are or what you’re doing. He would enjoy talking with you since he would feel like he can trust you with all of his heart.

“Jagi-yah~ I have a surprise for you!”

Originally posted by dibidibidismynameisjhope

Jimin

Jimin would be shy af whenever you want to hold his hand or give him a quick kiss. However, when you would be at home alone, he would love the fact you wanted to be as close to him as possible, loving the attention you give him. Your honesty would a factor why he would feel safe around you.

“Not here okay? Wait until we’re home…okay just one kiss but make it quick!”

Originally posted by jmins

Taehyung

He would be very open about skinship, because he would want to be as close to you as possible whenever you were together. He would always give you a kiss out of the blue whenever he thought you were being cute…which would be pretty much always. Since he thinks a lot and wants to share his thoughts, he would always rely on you to be straight up with him, loving your honest nature.

“Come here, I want to give you a kiss, you’re just too cute~!

Originally posted by agustddarling

Jungkook

He would be uncomfortable at first with your love for skinship, adjusting slowly to how you just wnated to close to him. It would take a lot from him to show his love to you in public however and he would try to ask you to keep your kisses for when were alone. Your honesty would appeal to him a lot and he would feel like he could talk to you about anything.

“Ehm, could you maybe not hold onto my hand so tightly? I know how much you love, but now is not the time.”

*gives you a quick kiss as a way to make you feel better*

Deception - Eisuke/Soryu (Part1)

His nimble fingers manage to twist and knot throughout the ends of my hair amorously as I’m pulled over and onto him upon the bed. His kisses without any warning or hesitation to explore past my lips leave me nothing but hot, bothered and meek.

We’d agreed months ago that this little fiasco; that this behind closed doors secret was going to end; yet when the text is received – the one that tells me how much he misses me, the one that tells me how bored he is, the one that tells me how he’d like it if I just dropped by for coffee and perhaps stay a little longer than just saying a simple, stern hello, I can’t at all help but feel week.

The sounds of rumours filter from the radio as gently and as timid at the lights dwindle in through half closed wooden shutters from the busy and bright Tokyo streets. His breath is warm as it taints my skin and I curse to myself like a mad woman for falling for his tricks, yet at the same time – at this time – the right time, I can’t help but for some reason fall for him again.

The tiny buttons of his shirt pop open in my fingertips; the tip of my tongue draws a line; soft and sensual from his chin all the way down his to his waist. French manicured nails with cream tips scrape at the outlines of muscle I have nothing but the pleasure of feeling and he hisses my name as I leave nips and bites which will bruise and paint like forbidden, erotic art across his chest.

“Eisuke….”, I mumble in a whisper; knowing that he likes it when I mutter his name innocently and bring my bottom lip shamelessly between my teeth. A rumbling growl resonates at the base of his throat and the sound of his belt unbuckling indicates an awareness of defeat.

With fingers still snaked in my hair, he presses me down; guiding me towards what I can only think of as a treat. Zipper down, briefs pulled, cock out; like a kitten I run my tongue teasingly along the underside of the shaft as I watch him whimper and weak.  The constraints of my skirt don’t make it easy to move so with a few quick shuffles, I manage to shimmy the material off and have it fall onto the floor of the bedroom. My blouse easily becomes undone; the cute little red bow in the chest our little secret and before I know it, he’s rocked us, rolled us, turned us over so that now my back is against the bed – and I’m the one who feels like the temptress, like a goodness – as if in between the sheets I’ll turn into a sex craved freak.

I’m sure, if not entirely certain, that it was a less than humble – clever woman who created the man-on-top position; why else after bearing a man’s weight above you for only a few seconds can you so easily fool them into believing anything – absolutely everything – including the notion of course that they actually think they’re in charge of what’s happening.

A year ago; when this all started, I’d spent hours upon hours at night fidgeting with my wedding ring – the thin gold band which is meant to symbolize a unification of love, honesty and trust now lays wrapped around my finger dormant and heavy. My cheeks blush; a warmth rushing across my face at the thrill, he can give me. Not a stranger; not a lost soul – my husband’s best friend and nothing more.

As the straps of la perla lace, I haven’t worn since my wedding night skim off my shoulders with ease – the quiet creak of the front door opening makes goose bumps appear as he rises to his knees.

“Honey, I’m home.”

I swallow hard; frozen; my next few words a plea.

“Fuck… Soryu’s here. Eisuke you have to leave…”

AUTHOR’S NOTE: I am not ashamed to say that I, too, had a little sleeping buddy. It was just a little pillow that I’ve had since I was like maybe 2???? But I recently threw it away because it was just… it was coming apart and there was no way of bringing it back to how it looked before lol. ANYWAY, enough about me. 

ENJOY! 


You double checked your bag and made sure you had everything in it. You were about to embark on a little trip to Europe to visit Sebastian while he filmed his new movie. 

You got a ride to the airport from your friend and then you were off. You busied yourself with a book and music as you soared through the air. When you touched down in Europe and once you got your bag off the conveyer belt you spotted a man holding up a sign with your name on it. You smiled and walked over to him. 

“Sebastian’s told me much about you.” 

You blushed. “Oh! Well I hope it’s been all good things.” 

He tucked the sign under his arm and helped you with your bag. Once you were settled in the front seat of the SUV, you two drove off to the hotel where you would be staying at. 

“Sebastian should almost me done,” the man looked down at his wrist to check his watch. “I’ll let him know you’re here.”

Calum’s arms were folded across his chest as he stared at you, standing on the other side of the kitchen near the fridge, as far from you as he could be it seems.  His eye brows were furrowing together, creating one big angry eyebrow.  

“I don’t understand why that matters,” he taunts. his jaw jutting out as if he’s holding back words to say to you.  “We’re friends and I just liked her picture, not sure why you’re so mad.” 

“It matters because of who she is,” you mutter, your phone lying on the kitchen table, opened up on her instagram picture. Her face glared back at you, as if she knew when she posted it that calum would like it and she knew how much it would hurt you. “Shes your ex, I think I have a right to be a little pissed.”

anonymous asked:

Do you think Jimin is avoindig jungkook a little bit? I don't know, he seems a bit distant on stage even when jungkook tried to hold his hand, and he didnt have much of a reaction when jungkook said "i liked It" .

I don’t want to assume things about their relationship because it’s not my place to do so. But, I’ll still give my opinion on this:
I don’t know if Jimin’s ignoring Jungkook or being cautious. Because they’re on stage in a foreign country, one slip-up, one thing that’s just a little too suspicious and it could affect their careers. I feel like in South Korea all the members are closer and more comfortable with their dans because they see them so often and they know what they’re saying. In other countries there’s a translation barrier, there’s this unknowing feeling when you go to a foreign country on what is and isn’t okay to say or do. I feel that if anything, Jimin is just being a little apprehensive because of how much attention they would get id he went all-out like he sometimes does.

And don’t forget, we still got that Iconic™ chest touch and butt slap, so he’s not completely ignoring him!!

I recently spoke to a little old lady who is in her 80’s and she was wearing an arm sling. When I asked her what happened, she explained that she was lifting a 15 pound bag of kitty litter and hurt her shoulder, which she says was already injured. How was it originally injured you ask? She had fallen a couple of weeks ago and dislocated her shoulder and had decided to pop it back in herself because she didn’t want to waste time going to the hospital when she can do it “her damn self” she said. Bad ass granny is bad ass.

Dear @deemo-fanzine,

My copy of the deemozine arrived today!! I was taking a nap when it did and my brother came to knock on my door with the package in his hands.. I have to say, it was the best thing to open my eyes to ever since 2017 started!!

I can’t express how happy I felt when I opened up the package and saw its contents;; everything about it is so precious, the tiny badges, the adorable necklace, the beautiful postcards, and the lovely zine itself- even the wrappings were pretty too, I love the little alice stamped in the packaging. My family wanted to look through the piece and they did ;v; They totally loved it too!!

@seiracchi, thank you so much for putting together this beautiful piece of a zine, I’ll be taking this to my grave and also, thank you so much for inviting me to join in!! I really love deemo and an opportunity like this felt very very wonderful.. all the pieces in the zine looks super lovely and it makes my heart pound that I was able to submit a piece alongside all the cool artists there. Also, I’m sorry the shipping cost you a lot of money. I wish I didn’t live so far away;; I hope uh, my piece there would be worth more than the shipping fee it cost you ;v;!! Bless you, and I hope the zine is a success!!! It’s really pretty and I hope all your hard work you put into making it pays off well!!

I am REAL tired of Iris always saying what her life isn’t worth at thus point. God, can’t she be a little selfish when her damn LIFE is on the line?! And yet people try to claim she’s the most selfish character on the show.

TalesFromRetail: A literally pissy customer

I’ve been lurking on this sub for a little while and wanted to share one of my more…interesting stories that happened a couple of years ago.

I was working as a cashier in a regional, more up-scale grocery store around the holidays. Needless to say, the store was busy as hell and I was in a robotic auto drive as the hundreds of customers came through the lines.

It was towards the end of that day’s 10ish-hour shift when a normal middle-aged dude is next in line. I paid little attention to him as he was somewhat quiet when I went through the required pleasantries. I had tagged and bagged all of his items and was simply awaiting payment. As he was fiddling with the consul suddenly I realize he has spilled something on the floor—the mess is slowly accumulating. I reach for the wipes at my station when I comprehend that this man has actually relieved himself onto the floor.

He finishes paying, looks at me with a weird little grin on his face, exclaims “whoops” and then walks through the puddle and giddily goes on his merry way never to be seen again.

At that point I’ve paged a manager and am trying to get the attention of the next customer, a mid-20s man, to ensure that he doesn’t walk through the unfortunate mess… Not wanting to loudly proclaim that there is urine on the floor I anxiously tell him to wait so that the custodial staff can clean up the mess.

The next few moments I recall with extreme clarity as they seemed to occur in slow motion…

The customer, who believed the piss was simply water (the floors have a yellowy tinge), stepped into the mess as I was explaining how it was actually an ill-fated bodily fluid. HE THEN SLIPPES INTO THE MESS AND ON THE WAY DOWN BANGS HIS HEAD ONTO THE SIDE OF THE REGISTER KNOCKING HIM OUT COLD.

At this point, my manager has arrived to find a man lying unconscious in a puddle of piss on the floor and it’s quite literally a warzone… The man’s wife is screaming and shaking her husband as she kneels in the piss and I’m standing by the register shell-shocked not knowing what to do as this is way outside of my job duties.

Unfortunately I had to stay on shift for another two hours filling out paperwork. It all happened so quickly and the customer was far enough away that there was nothing I could do. He ended up not pursuing legal action as the company’s liability insurance covered his medical bills.

One weird tidbit I remember is that after the urine was cleaned up by a custodian by that magical white powder that sucks anything up into a dry heap, it was then boxed and shipped to headquarters… I can only imagine the person whose job it is to receive boxed urine.

TL;DR man slips in urine and gets knocked out in the process

Kevin Tran wants you to eat!

Little known fact, if you eat only hotdogs for more than five days, it’s basically the same as eating nothing because, well, they won’t stay down anymore. Yeah, I wish I could say I just know that from someone elses experience.

Anyways, I’m not sure if you forgot (Trust me, when I was working on the tablets, there’d be days I forgot) but you need to eat. Come on. Go to the kitchen and grab something. Ramen, fruit, whatever you can get your hands on. 

Your body needs the fuel – especially if you’re diabetic or have low bloodsugar! 

Dean showed me this really great soul food place we could go to. Do you like ribs? Or uh greens? Beans and rice? 

Regardless, get some food in your body.
