some oddly specific aus that no one asked for:

  • “our grandfathers were mortal enemies during high school and they found out we go to the same school and keep trying to get us to sabotage each other and you’re super into it but like… i kind of have a huge crush on you so i’m having a hard time??” au
  • “i walked into this restaurant and you thought i was your blind date and i just kind of went with it because i don’t want to eat alone” au
  • “i’m a cab driver and you’re late to a business meeting and you are literally the most demanding pretentious piece of shit i’ve ever had the displeasure of driving but i also kind of want to fuck you in that suit” au
  • “i started a bird watching club at school and you are the only one who showed up at the first meeting so now i love you” au
  • “you’re my neighbor and your grandparents are coming to visit and you’ve apparently been feeding them a lie about how you’re dating me to get them off your case so could i please be your pretend date for like two days you will pay me in concert tickets and mac and cheese” au 
  • “my friend told me lick your mailbox on a dare and when i went to do the dare you were leaving the house to get your mail but i didn’t notice so now you’re staring at me as i lick your mailbox” au
  • “i fell asleep on you and drooled all over your shoulder in a theater during a really bad movie and you were too nice to shove me off” au
  • “my best friend owns a restaurant and you wrote a bad review of it in the local paper so it has become my goal to track you down and fight you” au
  • “i accidentally set your plant on fire and i felt super guilty so i went to the store to buy you another plant but they ran out of the plant that you had and i didn’t know what other kind of plant you liked so i may or may not have bought you enough plants to fill a small greenhouse?” au
But what if James and Lily lived?
  • Imagine if James and Lily lived…
  • And Harry is still friends with Ron, so of course he still goes to the Burrow all the time.
  • And Molly still loves him, and he’s still basically family.
  • But also:
  • The Potter family and the Weasley family having dinners together.
  • They usually take place at the Burrow b/c there’s more room.
  • The dining room is packed full of people, and some spill into the living room and the kitchen.
  • The Grangers and Remus and Sirius show up as well.
  • Everything is warm and cozy, and it smells so good.
  • The air is full of the scent of spices and butter, and you can hear laughter and sizzling from the kitchen as Lily and Molly prepare dinner.
  • (Even though Lily is awful at cooking).
  • James is in the living room marveling at the twins’ newest invention (and giving them tips when Lily isn’t looking).
  • Sirius is super impressed, and asks James why they never thought of what the twins’ have 
  • (”Merlin, James. Why didn’t we start a joke shop?” “Because you were too busy being punk and snogging werewolves.” “Touche.”).
  • Harry and Ron are laughing and playing wizard’s chess or something.
  • When Lily pops out of the kitchen to ask them to be a little quieter, Arthur asks her questions about muggle inventions.
  • (Recently, he’s been very invested in popcorn).
  • When dinner is finally ready, everyone crowds to the tables .
  • There’s barely any room, and people keep hitting each other with their arms, but no one cares b/c everyone is laughing and smiling.
  • Dinner is a mix of just about everything, in a mixture of mismatched bowls and plates.
  • (Some of it is burnt b/c Lily made it, but no one seems to care).
  • The dinner table is loud and full of conversation.
  • Percy is talking to Lily about a book that he’s recently read, and she’s suggesting others that he might enjoy.
  • Hermione adds a few of her personal favorites, and they get into a very deep discussion about their favorite books.
  • Sirius complains to Remus about the “book club at the table,” and Remus smacks him.
  • Molly is scolding the twins for trying to sneak pepper and other strange objects into the food.
  • James, Ginny, Harry, and Ron are having a very heated discussion about Quidditch.
  • “I can’t believe my son is a Seeker! And you, Ron! A Keeper? Merlin, Ginny, you’re the only sensible one here.”
  • Ginny laughing as he winks at her.
  • James challenging everyone to an after-dinner Quidditch match.
  • Lily smiling from across the table b/c her husband is such a dork and she loves him so much.
  • Everyone rushes through dessert b/c the impromptu Quidditch matches are the best things about these dinners.
  • Everyone working together to clean up as well. 
  • Lily and Remus are on washing duty and Fred and George dry. Ron and Ginny put the dishes away, and Harry and Hermione clear the table. James and Sirius serenade the group with a “cleaning song”, and Molly smiles as she makes the adults tea/coffee.
  • Then everyone rushes outside to play Quidditch.
  • Team One consists of James, Hermione, Sirius, Percy, and Ron.
  • Team Two consists of Lily, Harry, Ginny, Fred, and George.
  • Hermione and Percy are both awful, and Lily isn’t much better.
  • Regardless, it turns into a fierce competition between Lily and James for their team to win.
  • They both stop at nothing to win: often shouting, cheating, and trying to shove the other off their broom.
  • Sirius is cursing every few minutes and Lily is shouting vile insults back at him.
  • James and Ginny are constantly fighting for possession of the Quaffle, (James calls Harry a traitor when he cheers for Ginny).
  • Molly is cheering for all of her children and ignoring the teams and Arthur is shouting at Ginny to beat her brothers.
  • The Grangers cheer for Hermione even though they don’t understand what’s going on.
  • Remus makes fun of James and Sirius from the sidelines (and is nearly hit by the bludger Sirius sends in his direction).
  • Rules are forgotten about a third of the way through, and suddenly there are mini teams and cross-team alliances. 
  • Ron declares that he’s a spy and switches teams, and James tries to intercept everything that Lily does with a kiss.
  • The twins keep announcing that they’ve scored extra points (even though they’re both beaters).
  • The game ends when everyone is red-faced with laughter and smiles are plastered across their faces.
  • (Team one has a score of 87 and a half, whereas Team two has 76 points and a gold star)
  • James kisses his wife and quietly whispers, “we won.”
  • Lily kisses him back with a careful “in your dreams, Potter.”
  • Ron wraps his arm around Hermione b/c it’s actually gotten quite cold out.
  • Remus leans into Sirius, his hands wrapped around a mug of lukewarm tea.
  • Ginny and Harry breathlessly high-five, and then end up kissing a few seconds later.
  • Molly smiles and pecks her husband on the cheek.
  • Percy smiles softly, and the twins tell everyone to get a room.
  • Everyone laughs, their breaths clouding in the nighttime air.
  • The stars are shining, and the moon is bright (though not full), and everyone is happy.
  • And everything is as it should be.

Being a student is hard. Being a busy student is harder. So, how do you deal with being a busy student? By being proactive. Here are some tips I picked up by being super busy all of the time:

  • Plan ahead. Most people will wait until it’s almost time to register for classes to start planning their semester, but look ahead for the next two semesters at the start of the school year. That way you’ll know if there’s a class you want to take that’s only offered during one semester or the other when to take it. Or if it’s offered at one time in the Fall versus the Winter.
  • Have back up plans. Whether that’s for classes, places to work, transportation, whatever. Don’t think that just because you have everything planned out that something won’t go wrong.
  • Know yourself. I hate mornings, and I’m always more energized and ready to do things in the fall than I am in the winter. This means I would always make sure to schedule my classes at 10 AM onward and take my hardest classes during the Fall semester when I had the most motivation. This may not always be possible, but it made my life easier going to my nice easy classes when I wasn’t motivated.
  • Know your limits. Say no to that fourth club, second show, extra sport, study group you’re just trying to squeeze in, whatever it is, if you know that you can’t handle it. No one is going to think bad about you because you decided to put yourself first.
  • Have a calendar/planner/agenda/bullet journal/whatever to keep track of your stuff. Whether your stuff is club meetings, office hours, assignments, work… Make sure that you’re writing down EVERYTHING. Because there’s nothing worse than getting a “where are you????” text because you forgot to pick your friend up from the airport.
  • Get as much sleep as possible. Let me repeat that: GET AS MUCH SLEEP AS POSSIBLE. GET AS MUCH SLEEP AS POSSIBLE. Okay, we good? Good. 
  • Don’t try to pack everything into one day. Yeah, it would be nice to go to class, study for six hours, write three papers, see your friends, climb Mount Everest, visit every country in the world, and still sleep all by Monday night at 9, but let’s be real, you can’t do all of that in one day. 
  • Go easy on the caffeine. Your body, heart, and anxiety will thank you later. 
  • Make time for friends/family. Yeah, you have maybe 10,000 other things you could be doing, but sometimes the best memories are dropping something and driving to Detroit at 1 AM to get tacos and stare at Canada.

  • because he seems so put together
  • and like everyone else, it’s a hint of jealousy because you wish you could be like him,,,,,,,,
  • which is what you’re thinking about,,,,,,ironically in gym one morning
  • and you guys are playing volleyball which you know people are either REALLY excited about or REALLY dreading it
  • and you don’t even remember which side of the spectrum you’re on because,,,
  • you see jaemin
  • and he’s in his uniform, laughing at something a grumpy looking haechan is saying 
  • you look down when you think he moves his head and try to do something with your feet
  • hoping he doesn’t think you’re weird for staring
  • or that he just didn’t see all together 
  • so as you shuffle to the other end ,,,, you don’t expect the ball that’s been spiked your way
  • and when it collides with your head you jerk and slip backwards
  • falling to the hard gym floor with a loud, embarrassing thud
  • you hear sneakers against the floor
  • a circle of students forms around you, but they’re blurry
  • “o-ow?”
  • you mumble, the pain stating to throb where the ball hit
  • and you hear someones voice go
  • “i am so sorry, im going to get you to the nurse! just close your eyes-”
  • their cool hand touches your forehead and you do as they say
  • you don’t even try to sneak a peek at who this mystery person is
  • the pain gets worse
  • and before you know it,,,,you’re out cold
  • the nurse is hovering above you when you finally wake up
  • she’s standing there with an annoyed look on her face and you hear a voice behind her
  • “they woke up!”
  • “i can see that, now sit down and wait.”
  • you try to move but the nurse shakes her pen at you
  • “does it hurt, can you see my hand - wait how many fingers do i have up?”
  • you look at the three fingers and murmur the answer there’s a small tinge of pain but it’s not too bad
  • the nurse scribbles something down and then leaves
  • revealing the person sitting behind her
  • jaemin? why is he here?
  • jaemin shoots up from his seat, coming over to you 
  • he’s still in his uniform and his big, dark eyes are overcast with worry
  • he touches the side of your hand, 
  • “are you ok? im the worst person in the world for doing this to you,,,”
  • you gape
  • “i- wha-”
  • “i spiked too hard because haechan distracted me and im sorry the ball hit you i wouldn’t do that on purpose - seriously i owe you, i didn’t mean to hurt you-”
  • he’s talking a mile a minute and you’re still not really getting it 
  • to be honest he’s making the pain worse
  • and when you flinch a bit,,,,jaemin instantly looks devastated all over again
  • “oh god i need to stop, im sorry - i just want you to know id never intentionally hurt you.”
  • you try to put forth your best smile 
  • “i know, it’s ok jaemin,,,,,”
  • the truth is you don’t know what is even going on ,,,,, 
  • but what you can tell in your haziness is that you want jaemin to be the smiling, angelic boy he always is
  • this side of him all messy stuttering and anguished eyes,,,,,it’s not him,,,,,,
  • jaemin seems to relax a bit and the nurse comes back before he can say much else
  • she shoos him back to class and tells you that you’d better just rest for the afternoon
  • the next day the pain in your head is pretty much gone,,,,,,
  • your friends are all worried but they’re also all kind of humored by the thought of you getting randomly hit by a volleyball
  • but it turns out it’s not random
  • not when haechan walks by and nudges jaemin like
  • “you hit them with your volleyball jaemin,,,,,you should be happy they’re not SUEING you”
  • you blink, confused and one of your friends gasped
  • “it was jaemin who threw it? but he’s so nice,,,”
  • you turn to them before jaemin can hear
  • “it was an accident! he didn’t mean it!”
  • you really dont want to pin this on jaemin,,,,
  • you know just from seeing him yesterday that he’s probably still beating himself up about it
  • and you’re right 
  • he is
  • jaemin finds you at your locker and purposes doing your homework for a week as an apology
  • you decline and at lunch he asks if you’d like for him to carry your books instead
  • you decline again but jaemin sees you during fifth period and asks if maybe you want him to buy you an expensive dinner
  • you don’t know any other polite ways to say ‘no thank you - hitting me in the head with your volleyball isn’t such a big deal’
  • so you just tell jaemin it’s fine it really is fine
  • but,,,,,he can’t let it go
  • you can see the way he’s clenching his gym bag and looking at you 
  • so you finally give in
  • “you can ,,,,,, win the next volleyball game for me and for the school.”
  • he straightens up a bit
  • “that’s,,,,,,i can do that but that’s really not how i should pay you ba-”
  • “jaemin, just win. win the game for me. that’s what will make me happy.”
  • you smile and you don’t know it but jaemin feels something bloom within the depths of his chest
  • you could have used this opportunity to make him do some outrageous favor and yet here you were being selfless,,,,
  • asking him to just win a game 
  • “i really didn’t mean to hit you with my volleyball,,,,”
  • you clutch your books to your chest and let out a small sigh
  • “jaemin i know, i know you didn’t. so stop wasting your time and go win that game and we’ll be even. ok?”
  • you mindlessly reach out to touch his arm encouragingly
  • leaving to get to a club meeting 
  • jaemin turns slowly, but you’re already down the hall and just a speck around the corner
  • he remembers seeing you in the nurses office, passed out
  • how he’d dreaded the fact that he’d hurt someone 
  • but what made it worse, the absolute worse was that it was you
  • haechan and chenle had waited for him when he got out of the office and haechan had shook his head
  • “you literally just hit your crush with a volleyball,,,,jaemin you have the worst luck in the world.”
  • chenle had shrugged, “for the first time haechan is totally right.”
  • jaemin did have the worst luck,,,,,,,but he was sure he had great taste in people
  • afterall he’d liked you since high school started and you’d only proven to be such a,,,,good person
  • jaemin shifts his bag on his shoulders
  • he’ll win this game,,,,for you,,,,,,and,,,,,,so he can finally do something he’s wanted to do for a while
  • the volleyball game is the most buzzed about topic at school the day of
  • everyone is going to go because your schools is facing another school for a chance for the province playoffs
  • usually,,,,you wouldn’t even think of going - but your friends are all interested and plus 
  • for some reason,,,you had a note stuck to the front of your locker that read
  • ‘you can’t miss the game today!’ - jaemin’
  • so,,,,,,,when you got there after classes pilling into the bleachers with the rest of the student body you felt,,,,jsut a bit nervous
  • your schools team came out first 
  • jaemin looked absolutely perfect with his hair pulled back in the band, the uniform just slightly baggy on his lean frame
  • for a second you caught his eye,,,,,,,he smiled and you felt a thump in your chest that reached your ears
  • gosh,,,he really was so cute,,,,,
  • the game was intense, everyone was on the edge of their seats but luckily
  • your school pulled through and the whole team rallied around each other
  • jaemin was sweaty, tired, and still he threw himself into the team hug but then - just as the coach came out to make a speech about how playoffs were the next step 
  • jaemin pointed out into the crowd
  • everyone feel silent
  • “this win is for -” 
  • your name rung through the gym
  • and everyone turned to look at you 
  • jaemin didn’t seem to care about the awkward, shocked air 
  • as he ran up the stairs in the bleachers and tugged you out of your seat
  • “jaemin?!??!?!”
  • you start, frantic and feeling your entire body heat up with everyones eyes on you
  • but jaemin just shakes his head
  • “everyone needs to know that-”
  • you expect he’s going to say ‘that i didnt mean to hurt you!’ or whatever 
  • but instead he goes “that i like you,,,,,,will you go out with me?”
  • the entire gym erupts into whispers and ‘ohs!’ and then applause
  • and you’re pretty sure this is just /too/ dramatic of a way to confess
  • and you didn’t think jaemin had it in him
  • and yet here you are
  • in his arms after a winning volleyball game and he just asked you out in front of the WHOLE school
  • before you can even mutter an answer the coach clears his throat
  • “na jaemin get down here immediately!”
  • he calls and jaemin lets go of you to rush down the steps
  • the coach scolds him till finishing his speech about playoffs,,,,but everyone (even the teachers) are way more invested in you and jaemin
  • by some miracle,,,,as everyone is leaving the gym you get pulled aside by chenle
  • who tells you that jaemin’s waiting on the opposite side of the school for your answer
  • you get there,,,,the sky’s already dark and you can see jaemin’s silhouette against the side of the school
  • his gym bag over his shoulder, his hair slightly a mess from the game (and from the millions of times he’s run his hand through it with nervousness)
  • “hey,,,”
  • you wave as you approach,,,feeling awkward and nervous yourself
  • jaemin perks up, but you can hear his voice is shaking a little. his confidence high from winning the game must have come down
  • and you can tell because he chuckles and goes “sorry for making a scene,,,,”
  • “it’s ok,,,it’s just,,,,,are you really interested in dating me - this isnt another one of your ways of saying sorry?”
  • you see jaemin’s shoulders kind of fall
  • his frown hurts more than anything else in the world
  • “no,,,it’s not,,,,how could you think id do that? do i seem like such a bad person,,,”
  • “nO!!! no,,,i just want to be sure,,,,,”
  • it’s silent for a moment but then jaemin steps forward
  • he touches the side of your head, there’s a small bruise you’ve tried to cover up to no avail where the ball hit
  • and he leans in a bit to kiss the spot beside it
  • “i do really like you, and i do feel bad for ,,,,, you know,,,,, but i hope you can still give me a chance,,,”
  • you nod slowly and jaemin’s eyes twinkle with their usual happiness
  • but then you add, “jaemin,,,,,the whole gym confession was a little dramatic,,,,”
  • he goes red and grips his bag
  • “i know, i know winning just got me into this mood and i promise not to embarrass you like that again,,,,not as your boyfriend.”
  • the word boyfriend makes the inside of your heart flip 
  • and jaemin slips his free hand into yours
  • “let me take you home~” he proposes
  • and before you can even fully register it,,,,,you realize you’re dating the one and only jaemin
  • and of course the next day everyone gathers around you to know what happened
  • but you don’t even have to say much
  • because jaemin turns the hall and the moment he sees you
  • it’s like he’s seen the warm sun come out
  • because he drops his conversation with his friends and rushes over to you
  • “when’s your free period?”
  • he asks, excited and you tell him ,,, still surprised by how fast he got over to you 
  • and jaemin just grins like “me too! let’s go get snacks together!”
  • chenle: are we invited?”
  • renjun: no, it’s a date DUH
  • everyone gasping: A DATE? 
  • speaking of dates,,,the thing about dating jaemin is that it never stops feeling like pure puppy love
  • because jaemin’s personality is pure and honest
  • he likes you for the sweetest reasons, he thinks you’re the most beautiful person in school but not just based on your looks
  • like there’s something about jaemin that lets him attract the good in people
  • and he knows that you are,,,,one of those rare good people who he’s ready to give his whole heart too
  • even though he’s still young an might think that giving your whole heart is sharing ice cream at 7/11 during your free periods
  • and spending hours in the library ‘studying’ but in reality you’re just doodling funny things on the same piece of paper and getting hushed for laughing by the library TA
  • and falling asleep on your shoulder as you take the bus home
  • but don’t get me wrong,,,,jaemin knows hosw serious loving someone is too
  • he knows the importance of being there for each other
  • from simple things like when you come to cheer him on at his games and jaemin feels this burst of energt just from seeing your smile
  • to serious things like applying to colleges together or talking about family issues together
  •  when you call him and your voice shakes on the phone because the future scar you,,,growing up scares you
  • and jaemin’s voice,,,like calm music assures you that the future is bright and that he will be there with you for any steps you want to take
  • “people always say that ill make it,,,that i sure to be someone or something - but im scared too. im scared like you are, but ill hold your hand no matter what. let’s be scared and brave together!”
  • god,,,that’s corny but jaemin would totally say that and in the moment you’d probably cry because your bf is the best,,,
  • jaemin’s volleyball team wins playoffs and as a gift the coach gets them jackets with their names on it
  • and jaein’s first thought is “im going to give this to my s/o”
  • and he does,,,,
  • you wear it sometimes to school and everyone is like so cute!!!
  • haechan: this is it’s own level of pda

  • and you kiss him too,,,which always makes jaemin get blushy (his ears turn firey red)

anonymous asked:

GOOD LUCK!!! (ALSO as a florist, do you have any recommendations/anecdotes for people who are writing a flowershop au? :D )

It’s up for debate for romantic potential, but here’s some Fun Florist Experiences:

1) Roses come in massive human sized coffin boxes. I have accidentally knocked two people flat on their asses hauling these puppies around.

1.1) actually flowers come in massive Unhelpfully overpacked boxes in general. Most are at least 3-4 feet tall/long. A lot of places can keep this to the back but if not BOXPOCALYPSE. It’s not sexy

2) Flowers are lovely and light but the buckets of water they suck up to survive is heavy. My beefy biceps are no joke.

2.1) my gross dirty nails and thick callouses. Flowers are full of dirt and pollen and roses are thorny…my calluses are No Joke. I also always have tiny cuts on my hands in the places that haven’t calloused up yet.

2.2) I smell great because flowers but also I am always kinda damp and there is water every where. I know there is pollen on my face please shhh

2.3) seriously stay away from my work counter, behind this beautiful set of arrangements is three inches of shed leaves and a small lake.

3) Pinterest’s fucking mason jars…tiny flower arrangements in mason jars are like crack…FOR FATHERS. Dads love mason jar arrangements. You know what my favorite thing is??? A dad with a tiny little girl picking out a cute jar of flowers for her. Equally cute is the dad with little boy who is shy about liking flowers.

4) ask me how many people say “ah yes, my bouquet just needs A WOMAN’S TOUCH.”

5) what businesses are around this hypothetical flower shop AU? Because there is a hospital within walking distance and I know ALL ABOUT the petty wars between two head nurses, and Amy just leveled a power move and bought 96 roses to hand out to all the patients in her ward. Karen responded by buying mason jar arrangements for all the surgeons.

6) gay dudes (tbh men who actually love their SOs in general) are On Top of this flower business. They call the arrangement in advance, check if they’ve got a vase ready, buy one if they don’t…price is no object. They just want something nice and they’re so patient!! I love these guys, they’ve always got something nice to say about their SOs too. Love is real.

7) “hi I didn’t water or feed these flowers and they died in two days. I want my money back because you said they’d last a week.”

Me: >B|

8) weddings: the amount of money we will make is directly proportional to the amount of pain we will suffer

THINGS PEOPLE PAY ATTENTION TO WITH FLOWERS:

-how pretty they are
-how full the bouquet is
-how much they have to care for it
-PRICE!! People want deals and cheap.
-That One Flower That Is Out Of Season That They Won’t Get When It’s In Season
-how long the bouquet lasts!!
-COLORS!!

THINGS PEOPLE DON’T PAY ATTENTION TO WITH FLOWERS:

-what the flower means.
-the huge huge huge barrel of flowers we always have to throw away because preserving pretty things is hard when the pretty thing is dead.

THE GREAT FLOWER CIVIL WAR:

-Pro or Anti Baby’s Breath???(we’ve lost good people over this one)

Uhhhhhhhhhhh that’s stuff that happened this year so far….some flower shop AU logistics:

Is your OTP coworkers? Probably always on other ends of the store during busy times, because flowers involve a surprising amount of running around in coolers, boxes, customers, etc. water has to be changed, plants need more water…you’re mopping up water so ppl don’t trip. It’s a pretty busy job. Places are different and you can have downtime but the time your otp will have to talk and bond will be when one is a customer, in my experience.

Parents who bring their kids are so cute tbh!! Most kids are so polite and awed about the flowers and won’t touch!! Super cute. An otp with one as a single parent is a GOLD MINE of fluff because they’ve got teachers to get flowers for or first girlfriends or maybe OTP parent has a date and your florist wants to help like a lot!! But they also like this person…it’s good stuff.

I get involved with my customers, because they want you to Know Their Feel so you can help them. So helping people is almost always a Thing when they explain what they need and why, and you get repeat customers who are friends (or you want the latest dirt on Head Nurse Karen and to make a big sale to one up her….)

Continue from above, sometimes people know they’re supposed to Do Flowers for something and they just…don’t know anything and they want it to be right, and being able to show them the options and reassure them they’re doing good, and going that extra mile (with paper or vases or extra flowers for free or ribbon) for it to be pretty and nice….I love that. I had one guy who was so so nervous for the first Valentine’s Day with his wife come back with his friends who were also having trouble deciding stuff. One of them was so happy to get something nice he side hugged me quickly and then apologized.

We have repeat customers who come in all the time for stuff because of the above things! Of all the AUs I think a flower shop AU could work because you DO get a place to let people talk about their feelings safely and make friends with a wide variety of types!!

This ended up super rambly and long but I hope it inspires some people! Thank you for the ask!! 😊

Me and Stef actually moved in at the end of June! But I was too busy drawing other comics to draw this comic in a timely manner…

One of the most exciting parts about our new house for me was the fact it’s a much nicer place for our cats!! There are big windowsills for them to hang out on, which I am probably too hyped about.

Winged Wiishu? A Wiingshu?

Had to repost oops pay attention to this one ignore the other one thanks

It’s finally done! Spent the last few days working on this piece and I’m so super proud of it. Trying out a more realistic style has been really fun and a great practice.
Ever since the talk about winged @wiishu I had such an itch to draw it but for the longest time I was super busy with commissions and stuff so I couldn’t. But behold! it’s here, finally! :D at the start it was supposed to look entirely different than this but as I said, I’m happy with this. Easily one of my favorite pieces this year so far

Hope you like it Wiish!

What is Motorcity?

Motorcity is a cartoon that was running on Disney XD for a while, before Disney mis-managed the crap out of it, then cancelled it and sat on the rights and didn’t do anything with them, like a bunch of jerks.  It’s available on iTunes, and it’s also on kimcartoon (altho there’s an audio error in those. I’m thinking about uploading my corrected copies somewhere so people can get them?? stay tuned)

ANYWAY.  In the Far Future, a guy called Abraham Kane (AKA Mark Hamill AKA Luke Skywalker AKA The Joker) decided he didn’t like Detroit and he wanted a new city there instead.  So he built his new city over top of Detroit, called it Detroit Deluxe.  Deluxe is run by Kane Co. which is run by Abraham Kane.  

(((^^^ The difference between a villain and a supervillain??? PRESENTATION.)))

So now that the whole stupid “human rights” thing is out of the way upstairs, his only remaining problem is the people who would rather live under the city, in old Detroit AKA “Motorcity”.  Kane’s like “well, time to destroy this dump and build More Deluxe! :)” and Motorcity is like “hey fuck u we literally live here” and Kane’s like “I don’t know I can’t read all of a sudden”.

Our main characters have chosen to combat his drones, nano-viruses and private army with COLORFUL AND ECLECTIC CARS.   Our main is an ex-commander from the aforementioned private army, his name is Mike Chilton and I love him.  He’s good at basically everything, and you would think that would make him obnoxious but actually he’s a reckless, adorable puppy-dog mom friend who likes helping and driving too fast and diving off buildings and believing in people.  He’s also canonically mixed-race, so that’s kinda neat.  

He’s a Good Boy.

(And yes, the people who did the character design were also involved in Gorillaz, personally I like the aesthetic of Motorcity way better but they are similar in a lot of places)

Cons: 

  • it got cancelled, so  there are only 20 episodes.  And it does take an episode or two for it to get its feet under it.  
  • YMMV, but I would say the first episode I really really liked was episode 5. (And not just b/c the Duke of Detroit is a fukkin gift, holy crap)
  • not enough ladies, and also they fall back on that thing that’s like “nerdy guy likes the Cute Girl, doesn’t take a hint” and it’s really annoying tbh.  Both characters involved deserved better.
  • Rule of Cool.  This show makes 0 sense sometimes, you gotta lean into that to enjoy it tbh.  It is a silly, silly show (until the finale, then it fukkin destroys me every time)

Pros:

  • Gorgeous, colorful backgrounds and character designs, super-unique style, #aesthetic for days.
  • a really fun, varied cast.
    • VILLAINS, the villains are so good.  Mark Hamill’s villain voice-acting is second to none.  A bizarrely flamboyant rock-star mob boss played by the lead singer of Twisted Sister, who is the embodiment of Chaotic Evil.  A disillusioned eco-terrorist with fascinating bio-weapons and a ruthless/single-minded obsession with doing the same thing to Deluxe that Kane wants to do to Motorcity.  
  • If you don’t mind some silliness/Rule of Cool, the episode plots are fun and I enjoy them. :)
  • Mike’s best friend is really anxious and scared of a lot of stuff and they’re adorably comfortable with each other and they have special nicknames for each other I’m sorry I have a lot of feelings about these nerds.  (can u tell what splickedy’s ship is lol)
  • There’s a lot of room for character interpretation and backstory and stuff, and a lot of implied worldbuilding that’s super fun to build on.
  • the creators are/were really cool with fandom, altho they’re busy with other shows now.  (the head writer retweeted one of my videos!! :D :D :D  I’m still super jazzed)
  • in conclusion it’s cute I love it and I love the characters.

Early Morning Shift

Mic: Nemuuriiii, I wrote my number on his napkin and he used it to order coffee! Who does that??

Nemuri: Did you think it would be that easy? That guy’s as dense as the books he reads.

Part of the cafe AU I’m chipping away at, I’m such a sucker for them, and I figured I might as well make my own, even if I can’t write :P. Scruffy university lecturer Aizawa (Criminal Psychology), and barista Mic, with Nemuri running the business and other characters part-timing.

edit-  anyone is totally welcome to build on what I post for this cafe AU, or veer off and make their own stuff! (I’m sure theres already cafe AU’s in fics and art, there’s even the official art of one XD, but I’ll be tagging my stuff ‘bnha cafe au’, anyone is welcome to use that!)

(I never really know which name to call Mic by, Yamada is super common, so maybe I’ll stick with his hero name for uniqueness?)

Masterlist

You finally got home around midnight after working a late shift at the diner. All you wanted to do was go straight to sleep, but you didn’t like getting into bed without showering first. So, quite reluctantly, you took a shower and got ready for bed. Finally, almost an hour later, you were comfy in bed. You had your favorite pajamas on, and the covers pulled all the way up. It only took a matter of moments before you’d passed out, sleeping peacefully.

Unluckily for you, this was the night the fire alarms went off. And only about half an hour after you’d finally, finally, fallen asleep. This had happened before, so you knew it was most likely a false alarm; someone had probably accidentally burned their midnight snack, or something stupid like that. Without much haste, you got out of bed, grabbing a blanket and your phone as you slipped on your shoes and headed outside.

Dating Jack Frost and Being a Guardian would include…

-You’re the Guardian of Love, but the others like to call you Cupid

-Especially Jack

-“Hey Cupid, steal any hearts lately?”

-“Just yours, Frost.”

-Before you two get together, there’s relentless flirting. Like, a lot of it.

-Let’s just admit it, Jack is a little shit.

-He’d throw snowballs at you if he spotted you before you spotted him. And then you’d shoot one of your arrows very, very close to his head.

-This doesn’t stop him from throwing snowballs.

-You’re super busy in February. Like literally the entire month.

-Getting mad at Jack for ruining perfectly good dates with snowstorms.

-“Snow days are more important than whatever those two had planned.”

-“It took me a MONTH to get them to go on a date!”

-When Jack finally does ask you out, it’s super cheesy.

-“Oh come on, Cupid, don’t give me the cold shoulder! You know we’d make an ice pair!”

-“You’re stupid.”

-“But you love it though.”

-“Yeah…”

-Tooth is so excited when she finds out you two are together.

-Her fairies, on the other hand, …not so much.

-Bunnymund is shocked.

-“Oh come on, sheila. You can do better than the eternal toddler.”

-He never lets you hear the end of it. You just laugh and shake your head.

-Snowy day dates

-Going ice skating together

-Jack being cautious to cuddle with you because he’s afraid he’ll make you too cold.

-You insist on cuddles anyway.

-Eventually, he gives in and lets you cuddle with him.

-Your transformation gave you pink hair. Therefore, when you start dating, Jack starts finding pink hairs EVERYWHERE.

-Sometimes he lets you borrow his hoodie

-He thinks you look pretty cute in it. Very cute in it. He literally cannot stop looking at you when you’re wearing his hoodie.

-In return, he sometimes steals your pink t-shirts. They’re very small on him. It’s very endearing.

-When summer comes around, Jack hangs out with you a lot. He doesn’t have much to do, so he helps you out with all of those teenage summer relationships.

-“Summer lovin’ happened so fast~”

-“Jack, this isn’t Grease.”

-“His name is Danny! Her name is Sandy! It’s PERFECT!”

-“Maybe a little.”

-Jack just really loves you a lot, and in his three-hundred years, you’re the only thing that’s ever really made him happy.

I don’t normally join into ship week stuff, but these prompts look fun c:

for @jlaireweek and today’s prompt is Shakespeare. Thought it would be cute that they still recite lines from the play to each other, just to be the cute kind of corny romantics.

((super quick doodle since I was at work but omg not supposed to be daylight I freakin swear XD Imma fix that tomorrow XDD))

EDIT: I added the evening version since I was so busy with work I kinda forgot to add the extra dark blue to the BG in the first one XD good ol monday goofs ha!

so I really enjoyed binge watching gravity falls all over again but there’s one particular thing that I noticed about dipper that literally broke my heart and that’s how he seems so alienated from the world. like, he thinks the only thing he will ever be is the “smart one” and he’s so scared when it seems like ppl are not taking him seriously. he thinks he has to gain other ppl’s affection by being super clever because he’s not as funny as mabel or as chill as wendy or as cool as robbie and he’s so self conscious about it, it breaks my heart. he knows really well he’s different from the others kids and just can’t ignore and glorify it as mabel does so he tries to keep his mind busy with the mysterious stuff to avoid thinking about it but every time someone makes him notice that, he falls apart and alienates himself in the quietest and saddest way ever for a 12 y/o and I wanna die

A/N: I have been super busy with exams, school and other personal things, which is why I’ve been so absent, but I’m hoping to update more frequently now that they’re over but I can’t be sure! Remember, I live in Australia where the school year ends in December so we’re only on winter break at the moment. ALSO I ONLY PROOF-READ THIS ONCE I’M SORRY IT’S LITERALLY 1:33AM DON’T KILL ME

Disclaimer: not my gif

[Y/N] = your first name
[L/N] = your last name 


The first time that Peter Parker lied to you was over the phone. You had just gotten ready for the date you had both planned as a post-midterms celebration when the familiar tune of your ringtone graced your ears. At the sight of Peter’s Caller ID, you had managed to grin before picking up. 

“I’m absolutely starving, Parker.” you greeted, taking a seat on your bed and tucking your left leg under your right. “You better have made reservations at the pizza parlour because you know how busy they can get on Fridays,” you added, and when Peter said nothing, you raised an eyebrow. “Peter?” 

“I’m here,” he assured you since it sounded like he wasn’t present in the conversation at all. “I’m here, sorry,” Peter mumbled his apology before taking a deep breath, one that you could hear even over the phone.

“Are you okay?” you inquired, immediately noticing the edge in his voice. “What’s up?”

“I’m so, so incredibly sorry that I’m doing this to you,” was what Peter chose to lead with. “But I can’t make it tonight.” 

For a moment, you the nervous feeling in your stomach turned into disappointment, but you shook it off quickly, knowing that there was always a good reason for Peter’s cancellations. “That’s okay. What came up?” you asked. “Is everything okay?”

“Everything’s fine, don’t worry about it.” something about the way Peter was speaking — perhaps it was the way his usually nonchalant voice seemed strained — made you immediately come to the conclusion that he was lying to you. 

“Peter,” You began slowly, putting a smile on your face, knowing that this would make your voice sound less worried than you truly were. “If there’s something going on, I’m not going to hate you for telling me. I’d really rather know than, well, not know.” you paused, giving Peter a minute.

“It’s nothing, I swear. Just some emergency stuff came up with Ned and I really have to be there for him is all.” Peter lied so smoothly that you almost believed him, but the waver in his voice when he swore he was telling the truth was enough to expose his fibbing.

“Alright,” you allowed yourself to frown. “Well, I hope everything’s okay with Ned. Let me know what happens when you can, okay?”

“Of course, love you!” and with that, Peter hung up the phone. You were sat on your bed for a moment, phone pressed to your cheek before you realised that he was gone. You lowered your phone onto your bed and sighed, glancing around your room, digesting the conversation you had just had with your boyfriend. Things with you and Peter were still relatively new, going on roughly five months, but you had known Peter since the beginning of high school, which was over a year and a half ago. In this time, you had really gotten to know Peter and his quirks, including what he sounded like when he lied.

Deciding that you still deserved some sort of post-midterms treat, you reached for your phone again and dialled Michelle’s phone number as you pulled off your black lace-up heels. 

“Hey, Y/N.” Michelle greeted you, her voice slightly more vibrant than usual. “I thought you were going out with Peter tonight?” 

“I was,” you confirmed, getting to your feet and comfortably pacing your room. “He just cancelled though, so I’m all free! I was wondering if you might accept a stray into your Friday night plans?” you asked hopefully. 

“Well you know how I feel about taking in strays, everyone’s welcome,” Michelle continued your banter. “Actually, Ned and I were just going to get something to eat so why don’t you join us?” This made you frown.

“You’re heading out to eat with Ned? Like, right now?” you questioned slowly, letting it sink in.

“Yeah, we’re on our way out, but we can totally meet up with you! Ned scored us a table at that pizzeria that we all like by promising that we’d be there in at least twenty minutes. Are you up for that?”

You paused. “Yeah, totally.” you agreed. “I’ll meet you guys there. And Ned’s good?” you asked, making sure that you weren’t imagining things.

“He’s pretty jazzed that midterms are over and his deteriorating test-stress has finally been demolished,” Michelle said, and you heard Ned loudly protesting over the phone. “We’re all good. So we’ll see you in twenty?” 

“See you then.” you agreed before bidding Michelle farewell. You hung up and frowned, the idea that you had about Peter lying confirmed. If there was an emergency with Ned, why would he be going out for pizza with Michelle? Suddenly, the combination of your lace camisole top, skinny jeans and leather jacket seemed a little too dressed up just to get pizza with Ned and Michelle. Going on a date with Peter allowed for the camisole and heels, but dinner with friends didn’t seem like it needed as much special effort. 

Frowning, you stripped off the leather jacket and began to rummage through your closet in order to find a replacement for the camisole, choosing a Nasa t-shirt — which you were certain belonged to Peter — and pulled that on instead. You opted for a pair of old sneakers and pulled the jacket back on before grabbing your bag and phone heading out the door to meet your friends.
