Please watch Breakfast Club w/ super powers. I can honestly say I really enjoyed it! It had its fair share of flaws, but overall a very fun time and I would probably watch it 3 more times. The actors pulled through and made the relationship between the team very believable, which I think was the highlight of the film. The actual Power Rangers aspect was just icing on the cake for me.

Science of Male Orgasm Denial

In an update to her popular article The Orgasmic Benefits of Habitual - Male Orgasm Denial, Aislin Acquati explores the biological, psychological and evolutionary reality of routine male orgasm and how limiting them can dramatically improve your intimacy in relationships.

Dominate His Brain Chemicals By Controlling (Harnessing) His Orgasms

Male orgasm denial has numerous benefits, but do you know the chemical reasoning behind them? Endorphins, hormones, neurotransmitters, and neurochemicals (neurochemistry) affect how we ALL think and feel. By controlling your mans orgasms, you can control their brain chemicals and condition (train) them. Without any supervision or domination, men will masturbate and have as many orgasms as they please – which creates chemical chaos as well as undesired Un-Attentive behavior.

What are Endorphins?

Endorphins are a group of hormones that influence emotions and minimize the sensation of pain. They attach to opiate receptors, mostly in the brain. Pain and stress most typically influence endorphins to be released. They operate similarly to codeine and morphine.

Scandalous!

Women Can Enjoy Blissful Daily Orgasms – But Men Need To Be Denied

It’s true – Orgasms affect men and women “Differently”.

It is empowering to know that you can relish multiple orgasms on a daily basis while withholding them from your Virile Lover. Knowing there are hormonal reasons behind the science, (making him stronger and healthier), is just icing on the cake!

Endorphins and Other Chemicals That Control The Brain and Motivation

1. Endorphins: Natural painkillers that are extremely more potent than morphine – producing feelings of euphoria.

2.  Oxytocin - The Love , Cuddle and Bonding Hormone: Decreases abstract cravings – diminishes stress  – keeps couples together – provokes passion, devotion, attachment and deep feelings of fondness – strengthens sexual receptivity.

Normal/Raised Levels of Oxytocin: Devotion – a feeling of being connected – feeling protective and responsible – health benefits (reduces blood pressure and speeds up wound healing) – intense feeling of attachment – increases sexual alertness –   less addictions and cravings – positive viewpoint and attentiveness.
Low Levels of Oxytocin: Depression – low sex drive – reduced, indifferent or no feelings of of attachment, connection or devotion – poor or no feelings of protection and responsibility for another person – weakened immune system.

3. Dopamine, The “I have to have it” Neurochemical:

Normal/Slightly Raised Levels of Dopamine: Generates feelings of happiness – healthy sex drive – joy in completing tasks – motivated  – optimistic outlook – postitive feelings toward others – rational decisions – yearning to bond with others.
Low Levels of Dopamine: Ambitionless – despair – displeasure – idleness – impaired judgement – low sex drive – remorseless of own behavior – social anxiety – unable to feel love.

4. Serotonin (a neurotransmitter):

Too Much Serotonin: Anxiety – gastrointestinal disorders – insomnia – sexual malfunction.
Not Enough Serotonin: Decrease or increase in appetite – insomnia – isolation – loss of libid – low self confidence – ongoing saddness – over sensitive –– sore joints and muscles – stoamch pain.

5. Testosterone ( a hormone):

Low Testosterone:  Anger decreased motivation and self esteemdecreased muscle mass and increased body fat – depression – difficulty with concentration and memory – fatigue – low sex drive – irritability .

6. Prolactin (a hormone): After orgasm, it may make one feel sexually satisified and repress dopamine.

Excess Levels of Prolactin: Depression – diminished interest in bonding with others – – lowered testosterone levels – low sex drive – depression – infertility – irritibility – lethargy – pessimistic outlook – weight gain.

This is how it works:

Men experience a rush of dopamine during orgasm that puts them in a state of ecstasy. However – in most men – the blissful feeling disappears after 5-10 seconds. Interestingly, the surge of dopamine triggers an almost simultaneous burst of prolactin that causes dopamine levels to plummet. The result is a dopamine level that is much lower than it was before sexual arousal began. In addition, an above normal level of prolactin continues for up to two weeks.

Woman receive a peak in dopamine during orgasm, but (unlike in males) it doesn’t crash drastically; rather, it subsides in a gradual sequence of steps. Prolactin also increases to a level slightly above normal (upon feminine climax) – staying there briefly while dopamine levels gently return to their normal levels. Another recent discovery is that Women’s dopamine levels vary throughout the month based on their menstrual cycle.

You may be wondering what all this means. It means that…

1. Male Orgasms Are Addicting

Have you heard a song about love or sex being a drug or addictive and wondered if there were any truth to it? Consider the following song lyrics:

“Oh oh catch that buzz
Love is the drug I’m thinking of
Oh oh can’t you see
Love is the drug for me” – Love Is The Drug by Roxy Music

“The perfect drug | the perfect drug | the perfect drug
You make me hard when I’m all soft inside
I see the truth when I’m all stupid-eyed
The arrow goes straight through my heart
Without you everything just falls apart” – The Perfect Drug by Nine Inch Nails

Well – male ejaculations can definitely be addicting due to dopamine, the “I have to have it” neurochemical. When comparing brain scans, Gurt Hoistege, a Dutch Scientist found an astounding resemblance of male orgasm to shooting heroin.

After they researched rats, scientists in Mexico City pointed out that repeated ejaculations can very closely imitate the effects of abusing drugs.

2. Men Experience a Post-Orgasm Hangover

After orgasm, men experience a hormonal hangover similar to an opiate or cocaine withdrawal due to low dopamine and high prolactin. Dopamine levels fall while prolactin levels rise after orgasm and after stopping an opiate or cocaine. It takes two weeks for prolactin levels to normalize after stopping cocaine.

During a post-orgasm “hormonal hangover,” men may look for new highs, such as drinking alcohol – eating sweets – new sex partners – porn – and drugs, to boost their dopamine levels. They may also feel disconnected from their partner – experience depression – or become lethargic.

When dopamine levels are constantly bursting up and plummeting down due to uncontrolled orgasms, it can wreak havoc on relationships. Your relationships could feel like a never-ending roller coaster ride full of highs and lows with no middle ground.

3. Too Many Orgasm Lead Him To Cheat

Once plighted, no men would go whoring.
They’d stay with the one they adore,
If women were half as alluring
After the act as before – Ancient Greek Anthology Poem

Or we could phrase it:

Once married, no men would be cheaters.
They’d be faithful to the one they adore, rather than acting a whore
If women stayed half as enticing After orgasm as before

In any case – long before our time, humans knew that men cheated on their wives because they were not as appealing after sex! Once again, dopamine is the chemical responsible for men choosing to act in a way we ladies don’t like.

Scientists found that after male rats partake in a frenzy of sexual intercourse, they will lose interest in that female. However, if a new female comes along, the male will have sex with her. They linked the phenomon of mate fatigue to dopamine. When a male rat has intercourse repeatedly with the same female, dopamine levels continue to drop. When a fresh potential mate arrives, a surge of dopamine follows.

So – to keep your men feeling you are the most beautiful woman on earth with a World Class “Sacred” Vagina – you must harness and resolutely control their orgasms!

4. Repeated Orgasms Decrease His Sex Desire

Male rats also experience a decrease in testosterone receptor for up to seven days within their reward circuit. Hormones, such as testosterone, and neurochemicals dock on the nerve cells, along with receptors. In this instance, fewer receptors equals less reactivity to circulating testosterone. As a result, the reward system releases less dopamine.

The first problem is that low testosterone, or a reduced sensitivity to it, can cause anger and irritation. No woman wants to give a man an orgasm and then receive annoyance in return!

Not only that – you don’t want to “Allow” your man to Ejaculate if the undesirable psychological result is a lowered sex drive. This brings us to the second problem, which is the fact that endorphin and serotonin levels go up - in the reward system of the sexually satisfied rats. Endorphins and serotonin are both neurochemicals that can produce happiness, but when they are in this part of the limbic system, they bring things to a stop rather than only generating good feelings. Think of it this way: Antidepressants, such as Zoloft – Prozac – and Lexapro, that increase serotonin and narcotics, such as Vicodin – Percocet – and Methadone that imitate endorphins, can cause sexual side effects. When neurochemicals diminish the reward circuit for a period of time, complications in your intimate relationship – both physically and emotionally – can and will occur.

If you want your guy to have a low sex drive for several days to a week, allow them to have orgasms whenever they chooses – or encourage them to take an antidepressant or opiate! If you just thought or yelled – HELL NO – Then we’re on the same page.

5. Uncontrolled Orgasms Make Him Fall Out of Love

In her book “Cupid’s Poisoned Arrow: From Habit to Harmony in Sexual Relationships,Marnia Robinson points out the following: As a cure for love, the Roman Poet Ovid cynically recommends pursuing orgasm until it results in disinterest.

cruel Love presses your neck beneath his foot?…
Go, and enjoy your girl, any time, nothing’s forbidden:
let her steal away your nights and days.
Seek loathing for your sickness: and let loathing end it.
Now, too, when you believe you could be free, stay on,
till you’re quite overwhelmed, and abundance destroys love,
and disgusted you’ve no pleasure in her house. – Or Sate Yourself With Her by Ovid

Due to a dopamine drop and prolactin burst after orgasm, “eventually a man can develop feelings of indifference or slight repulsion for his sexual partner,” according to Taoist Secrets of Love by Mantak Chia.

Oxytocin is the chemical that keeps love alive, and Ladies can magically increase this baseline oxytocin level in their lives by cuddling – hugging – holding hands – massaging as well as sexually “Edging” their males.

The Cure is Simple

The cure for the chemical chaos that uncontrolled orgasms produce in males is simple – The Cure is Orgasm Denial. .

Under appreciated Sangwoo theory

Sangwoo might be a gardener in his spare time. Or at least, he use to practice it. 

In chapter one we’re shown his tool box, the first removable section having an assortment of florist materials in the compartments. From what I can tell he has stem cutters, floral tape, stem tape, and maybe corsage pins. I can’t quite make out what’s in the back sections but from the yellow color, I think it’s safe to say it may be floral materials. 

This kit includes similar items! However it excludes an important tool, the stem cutters. His are yellow, which means that they’re Oasis brand, aka one of the top brands in the florist community. 


In chapter four we’re shown a briefing of his pantry. 

In the top shelves, he has what looks like floral foam and what could possibly be plant feed or pesticides. 

The hue even seems to match the Oasis brand of floral foam (seeing has how many brands differ in color), though that could be a bit of a stretch. 

Just a bit of icing on the cake, but in many images Koogi has given to us of Sangwoo (our newest one being the teenage Sangwoo), there are depictions of flowers. 

This could also be something he use to do with his mom, seeing as how all of the plants in his home are dead - and he still holds onto a lot of things from his childhood, so why not this?

I could of course be wrong, but seeing as how a lot of the arrows point to this, let’s cross our fingers to see some more insight on this in season two!! 

WHY I LIKE NEGAN 101
  • He’s charismatic
  • He’s fucking hilarious
  • He’s manipulative af which shows a higher form of intelligence. Intelligence is sexy.
  • He keeps his end of the bargain.
  • He doesn’t want to harm women or children
  • He’s a good leader- NOT AN ETHICAL ONE, but in a world where money serves no value, he managed to build the Sanctuary AND an army that practically kneels to his presence. (This guy went from being a school teacher/used car salesman to a fucking dictator…If that doesn’t say something about his leadership skills, then y’all need to go back to history class.)
  • HE’S COMPLEX! HE’S UNPREDICTABLE! He keeps you guessing and entertained!
  • There’s a barbaric rationality/logic behind all of his horrible actions. It’s still fucking twisted, but it makes sense. (I find that you really need an open and mature mindset to understand it.)

LIKING NEGAN DOES NOT MEAN

  • Liking Negan doesn’t mean I support abusive relationships
  • Liking Negan doesn’t mean I only like him because he’s physically attractive. IMO Jeffrey Dean Morgan is just the icing on the cake. #perfectcasting
  • Liking Negan doesn’t mean I’m responsible for the shitty portrayal of the wives on TV
  • Liking Negan doesn’t mean I believe his leadership ethics should be applied in real life
  • Liking Negan doesn’t mean I wish to be Negan.
  • Liking Negan shouldn’t reflect who I am as a person.

*****If someone’s taste in character doesn’t adhere to your personal values/interests... WALK. The fuck. Away. You don’t get a free pass to shame on their interests. That’s fucking bullying, and I will SHUT THAT SHIT DOWN , NO EXCEPTIONS.

I just read the comments on a Ron positive post and I’m so confused.

‘I don’t hate Ron I hate Ronmione’ idk but I’ve never heard of a legit reason to hate them and most are centred on hating Ron.

‘Ron is a lightly grey character for the selfish way he acts’ I can’t even, ron opens his family to Harry when they are poor and really do not need another person to support. I do not see how that can be defined as lightly grey.

‘We hate him because we have friends who have pulled a Ron’ oh? Friends who are willing to sacrifice themselves for you at age 11? Lucky you.

'Ron abandoned Harry and Ron far too many times’ I’ve never heard far too many referred to as twice before.

'Ron made Harry and Hermione choose between himself and the other friend’ I honestly don’t think he did this once!? When he wasn’t talking to Harry in GOF it appears he was still talking to Hermione and in HBP we know he continued his relationship with Harry and Harry continued his relationship with Hermione and we never once heard him make an ultimatum on the issue.

'Abandoning them in the hurcrux hunt is just the icing on the cake of why I hate him’ I’m sorry that he struggled so much while wearing a Horcrux that he had a moment of doubt and then as specified in the book tried to come back straight away but couldn’t. It is also made clear that Hermione was having similar thoughts and had been talking with Ron about them, but where did Hermione have to go? Idk man, I understand that split second reaction when your worry is being down played by your best friends.

So anyway, I’ve never seen a legit reason to hate Ron.

LiftMan!Namjoon (Dope!AU)

Pairing: Reader X Lift Operator!Namjoon

Warnings: Smut (Lift sex, unprotected sex)

Words: 2.4K

Summary: You can’t help but feel intrigued by the cute man in the lift  and things escalate elevate.

“Seven Please” you smile as you step into the lift.

Namjoon immediately looked at you. Usually people just mumbled their destination to him with no please, thank you or even so much as a acknowledging nod. So the fact that you were rather cheerful and actually said please, took him completely by surprise.

He rarely took notice of the people that joined him in the lift, he was required to stand smartly and politely smile at all of his guests but he never noticed them. They all looked the same to him, just a blur of faces that filled his day until he could finally go home. He looked at you, studying the face of the one person that acknowledged his existence.

You looked up at the lift operator stood by the control console, you gave him a friendly smile. He was around your age. He had a soft face his blonde hair poking out of the side of his hat slightly. He smiled politely back at you. There were a subtle trace of his dimples.

You couldn’t deny that he was attractive. You were torn between wanting to rip his clothes off and just squish his adorable face.

He was too busy looking at you that it took him a moment to realise what he was meant to be doing. He eventually snapped back to his job and pressed the button for the seventh floor.

Peaceful lift music played as the doors closed and you started to glide upwards towards your floor.

You were new to the building, you were relocating so that you were closer to work.You were excited to get out of your old shitty apartment where nothing would work as it was meant to. Although you couldn’t help but sigh at the thought of unpacking all of your belongings.

You smiled at the fact that your new building had a cute lift operator that you would hopefully see most days.The lift dinged signalling that you had arrived at your floor.

“Thank you” you smile as you walk out of the lift.

He watches you as you walk down the hallway, the doors close in front of him blocking his view of you. He smiles to himself, wondering when he may see you again.

-

He went back to work with a new sense of hope that he would see more of you, that you were a resident and not just a visitor that he wouldn’t see again. He found himself hoping every time he arrived on the seventh floor that it would be you waiting to get in.

It was nearing the end of his shift when you walked in, he couldn’t help the smile on his face.

“Hello again” you smile at the lift operator.

“H-Hello” he smiles, a little shocked that you were actually talking to him.

“Do you know any good coffee shops around here?” you ask, you had yet to unpack all of your kitchenware and you just wanted a hot drink.

He was stunned for a moment, you were actually talking to him, no one ever talked to him.

“Uh” he had to think for a moment, he wasn’t expecting the question and it was as if his mind had gone blank.

“Y-Yeah there’s a place a couple of streets away, go right out the building, over the road then turn left and it’s on the end of that street” he manages to say.

“Oh thank you” you smile gratefully.

The elevator music plays as you descend towards the ground floor.

“Have you been here all day?” you ask, realising the last time you had seen him must have been a good few hours ago.

He simply nods his head. “Although I’m just finishing now though” he smiles, glad that he doesn’t have to stay in this lift any longer with the same music that is constantly playing in his head a as a result.

“Oh, well do you want to come get coffee with me?” you ask, a little nervous that the handsome man was going to turn you down.

“You want me to come with you?” he says to himself in disbelief.

“Well yeah, I’m terrible with directions anyway and you look like you could use it” you say. “You don’t have to if you don’t want, I get it if you just want to go home or whatever” you add, quickly starting to ramble.

He eventually speaks.

“I’d love to come for coffee with you” he smiles.

The lift dings as you arrive on the ground floor. You walk out of the lift, he follows behind you. You reach the front door, pulling it open and walking into the cool evening air.

“So what’s your name” he asks as you begin to walk together towards the coffee shop he had mentioned.

“Y/N” you smile, as it occurs to you that you still don’t know the name of the cute lift operator.

“Namjoon” he smiles back, reaching his hand out to shake yours .

-

By the time you return it was dark outside. You weren’t sure how long you were in the coffee shop with him, time just seemed to fly by. You had told him about yourself and he had told you a lot about him, like how he lived on the third floor and hence didn’t really get out much.

For the first time in a long time Namjoon felt happy, he was talking to someone, someone who was actually interested in what he had to say, the fact that you were a beautiful girl was just the icing on the cake for him.

-

Something intrigued you about the man in the lift and you wanted to know him more. Over the coming weeks you looked forward to those times when you actually left your apartment to take the lift down, sometimes just wanting to see his kind smile if you were having a bad day.

You had developed a small crush on Namjoon, so much so that you were disappointed when you went to use the lift and he wasn’t there.

Your little lift meetings continued for a couple of months and you would occasionally hang out once he had finished his shift

You weren’t sure what the two of you were, it always felt like there was something more there than just friends, but neither of you had the courage to say anything.

Until that one evening…

you've always been one of my fav artist because BLOODBORNE AUS and your work is just so good, i love the style and coloring, etc, and finding out you do shimadacest and don't hate on it's shippers just puts the icing on the freaking cake.

thank you !!! Have some vileblood boys for your kindness 

Drew a quick sketch just so I can feel that I’ve finished something today. But more than that, I just wanted to fangirl about seeing Iwaizumi in casual clothes. I just like Iwazumi so much and seeing him in my favorite kind of hoodie (the big poofy type one that I don’t know what you call) with a jacket over it is just… sweet sweet icing on cake. And that expression. *sigh*… 

After drawing a lot in Inktober, I’ve gained a lot more confidence in drawing faces, which in turn created an easier outlet for me to spaz about my current fandom(s). So just some heads up, since I might be posting more fan art to let out my inner screaming “fangirlism”. 

It’s time for more Jedi Path! Will I ever tire of talking about this book? (No. No, I will not.) 

In today’s installment, Anakin and Ahsoka explore the section on Forbidden Force Techniques. Please enjoy Anakin’s improperly-punctuated question about his true lifelong love, Force Grip. (”It’s just misunderstood – like me! OK FINE so sometimes you could use it to cut off someone’s air supply which is bad I GUESS, but what’s the BIG DEAL? It’d be GREAT used against an annoying coworker and paired with a killer pun!”) Ahsoka being like “Dear Jedi Strangler, please do not ever tell me I am being a hothead ever again thanks” in reply, with her totally weird/badass handwriting, is just icing on the cake. 

Also I like the idea of Force Insanity. I’m pretty sure being pushed into permanent madness by the Force is what’s happened to a lot of this fandom.

AN:

Wow, you guys. That’s seriously all we can say. Like man, it’s been an adventure of a lifetime, lemme just say that. I mean, we can’t believe we wrote this entire thing (and that alone was so much fun, holy moly), but the fact that you guys enjoyed it?

We’re seriously so emotional. You guys have no idea.

Thank you so much to all of you that joined us on this journey. It’s been such an honor to receive such incredible, touching compliments on a daily basis, and we can’t stress how much we truly love you. Our hearts are so full of love for each and every one of you, and we’re so grateful to have been able to share a part of our hearts (and insanity) with you.

I can’t tell you how much yelling has been going on behind the scenes– Well, I’m sure y’all could imagine, but take whatever you’re imagining and multiply it by ten thousand. All of this yelling has been because of all of you (this is supposed to be a sweet sentiment, just take it, we’re hoarse, omg).

Again, thank you so much for your support, kindness, and love. We love you all so much. Thank you for making us two very happy dorky nerds. You’re all so amazing.

And so it’s with great pleasure that we present to you the epilogue.

- Team GTNW -

——–

As much as you wanted to jump right into the next chapter of your life with the absolute love of your life, you knew it was best to let time run its course. The two of you decided to spend some time apart to just let things rest for a while, to regroup and think about what comes next, to prepare for the journey that was to come.

You’d both come to the agreement that you’d spend the next two months living your own lives, submerging yourselves back in the mundanity of work, giving the universe a much needed break (or rather, maybe the universe needed to give you guys a break).

That was the plan. Except two weeks after your reunion on the fire escape, your phone dinged with a new text message.

anonymous asked:

Do you think any little part of Azula ever loved Zuko? While manipulating him in season 3 did she ever enjoy his company? Playing volleyball and getting him from the old family house in "The Beach", encouraging him to go to the war meeting sans formal invite and hiding his secret Uncle visits? All those years ago she warned Zuko about Ozai's plan to kill him and tried to get him to spy on Azulon and Ozai. Wishful thinking?

Yes, Azula loved Zuko. You can see her genuinely happy about playing with him as kids, before their mother disappeared and their father started to put more pressure on them both:

I think she still does care about him, in her own way. She’s genuinely concerned about him, here:

 
Azula: I thought I’d find you here.
Zuko: Those summers we spent here seem so long ago. So much has changed.
Azula: Come down to the beach with me.  Come on, this place is depressing.

And here:

Azula: So…I hear you’ve been to visit your Uncle Fatso in the
prison tower.
Zuko: That guard told you.
Azula: No, you did. Just now.
Zuko: Okay, you caught me. What is it that you want, Azula?
Azula:  Actually, nothing. Believe it or not, I’m looking out for you. If people find out you’ve been to see Uncle, they’ll think you’re plotting with him. Just be careful, dum-dum.

(Listen to the voice acting if you think she’s just being manipulative.)

But that doesn’t mean necessarily mean she won’t try to kill him. When she shot lightning at Katara in the Agni Kai, she accepted the risk that Zuko would take the bullet for her, metaphorically speaking, and didn’t bat an eye. When it comes to maintaining her grip on power, she is absolutely merciless.

One argument I’ve seen flying around the fandom that I disagree with is that Azula’s willingness to use persuasion on Zuko in “The Crossroads of Destiny”, rather than fight against him when she didn’t truly need his help, showed that she cared about him and wanted him home. But here is what many people forget, and the reason why she HAD to get Zuko to come home, regardless of how she personally felt.

Fire Lord Ozai: Iroh is a traitor and your brother Zuko is a failure. I have a task for you…

Does Azula want to capture the Avatar as a big middle finger to Zuko? Of course. But that is NOT her ultimate mission as revealed in the Season 1 finale. She was tasked with hunting down and capturing Iroh and Zuko and bringing them back to the Fire Nation. And unless she returned with both in hand, she would have failed her original mission from her father, even if she’d defeated the Avatar. (And we all know how Ozai deals with failure.)

Now by the end of Season 2, Azula had tried to take Zuko and Iroh prisoner twice before, and each time, they’d escaped because they were a formidable team. They’d had each other’s backs for years in exile, the way we see them in “Winter Solstice, Part 1.” Remember, when Iroh and Zuko fought together in “The Awakening” and again in “The Guru,” they beat Azula plus the highly skilled Royal Guard, and Azula plus the highly skilled Dai Li, all on their own. The reason Zuko got captured in “The Guru” was because he separated from his uncle when the temptation to challenge his sister became too great.

From this, Azula learned that Zuko and Iroh were too much to take on as a united front. However, if she could prey on Zuko’s weakness and get him to abandon Uncle, then Iroh would be a) without combat support and b) less of a flight risk. Sure, it helped to have Zuko as a fall guy in case Aang wasn’t really dead, but that was just icing on the tactical cake. “Divide and conquer” was her surest way of delivering Zuko and Iroh back to her father, just as the Firelord commanded.

Whenever I think of this pairing I think of the "I CLAIMED YOU ON MY TAXES, SHAWN" bit, so I would like to hear a bit about how Gus ended up claiming Shawn on his taxes. If it involves marriage shenanigans that would just be icing on the cake.

OK I am legit imagining a Sweet Home Alabama AU. Shawn has been swanning around the country with a series of odd jobs and adventures (this is all thoroughly pre-Psych), but he makes routine trips back to Santa Barbara and on one of those trips it’s around tax season and Gus is hanging out with him when he tries to fill out his tax forms. And Shawn is just epically bored with the taxes and they’ve gotten to the bottom of a couple of those pouches of blue drink you get at the supermarket that have labels that warn in all caps CONTAINS ALCOHOL but that mostly taste like skittles. Thus, Gus is pliant and willing and Shawn totally cons him into filing for a domestic partnership and then doing Shawn’s taxes for him because, as Shawn will say many, many times, “SPOUSE!”

So this goes on for a few years and Gus secretly likes it because it means Shawn always shows up in the spring at some point with a pocket full of receipts and some W-2s. Gus always rolls his eyes but he does the taxes and they drink the stupid pouches of CONTAINS ALCOHOL or whatever and it’s just….it’s nice.

Only in this AU, Shawn doesn’t settle down in Santa Barbara eventually to run Psych. He eventually comes to a stop in some big city somewhere where the tips to the cops don’t raise any flags because no one pays that kind of minute attention to the tip line. And Shawn has always assumed it was completely and totally clear that he conned Gus into marrying him because obvious, gigantic crush on Gus and that Gus insists on it being a tax thing as his subtle way of turning Shawn down. So when Shawn settled in….let’s say Chicago….he didn’t really think the “marriage” with Gus was a real thing he could break up because he knew Gus didn’t like guys anyway, obviously, and even if he did, he’d clearly be into some straight-laced respectable type.

So Shawn sets up as a private detective, no psychic shenanigans, and starts to make a life for himself. Eventually, he settles down even more with a cool sex friend who’s convenient and it’s the closest he’s gotten to ~loving someone who’s not Gus, so they decide to run away to Vegas and get married when the gay marriage law passes. Only, shit, what if Gus is still claiming him on his taxes? He should probably go back and check.

So he rolls into Santa Barbara, first time in a few years, and tries to get Gus to dissolve the domestic partnership so he can get married to his casual sex friend. Maybe the casual sex friend even comes with and maybe Shawn is all sedate and manageable and not at all the hijinks shenanigans guy Gus fell in love with. And Gus has been riding on the assumption that Shawn is a will-o-the-wisp types who can’t be ~tied down or some shit but hell no is Shawn marrying this dude, this dude has a neck tattoo and is genuinely unfun.

Also Gus may have upgraded the files to full on gay marriage, like, the DAY it was passed. For tax reasons.

Also, I assume a shenanigans case erupts while Shawn and his cool sex friend are in town only his cool sex friend is a terrible partner in solving crime and Gus rolls his eyes a lot about it, but gleefully takes over. And there’s a moment later when they’ve stolen the pivotal toy poodle and are hiding in the murder suspect’s bathroom having a whispered fight about their storied past when it becomes clear that this has never been a taxes thing to Gus and it’s always been the One True for Shawn.

So Neck Tattoo leaves town, Shawn and Gus go into business with a legit detective agency (not a psychic one), and they stay married after all.

Summary: Dean’s made his deal and the Reader is unhappy about it. Denial and a hefty dose of ignoring Dean seem to be her way of trying to fix her broken heart, but will it work?

Warnings: Language, angst, implied smut, Dean being a turd and the Reader deflecting his attempts to fix things. 

A/N: This was a request from @waywardlullabies from literally 3,000 years ago that I am just now finishing. Thank you vacation for the stroke of inspiration and thank you insomnia for the time to write it. Based off the song End Credits by EDEN. If you haven’t checked out this little indie band you are FUCKING MISSING OUT. So do yourself a favor and listen before reading this. Or listen while reading. And after. And for the rest of your life. You’re welcome. Also, this is entirely third person. Which I’m liking.

Sun is blaring through the open windows, the spring air the perfect temperature. Everything should be perfect, and if someone were to be looking in from the outside, if someone were to bump into the handsome young man and pretty young girl in the sleek black car, they’d think it was. Because that’s what spring offers, a feeling of hope, new beginnings, new life.

But not everything is as perfect as it seems.

Too Hot

One of the tropes in romance movies that made you laugh time and time again was that of the partner who was generally better at whatever activity the couple happened to be participating in willingly letting the less skilled partner win. This trope popped up in movie after movie and you even saw it happen in real life once or twice. It gave you the misguided belief that no matter who you ended up with, they would take mercy on you, especially because games and feats of physicality weren’t exactly your forte, and let you win every now and then.

But, of course, luck was never on your side and you happened to end up dating one of the most competitive people you’d ever met.

If there was one thing Jungkook hated, it was losing. He’d been given the reputation of being able to do, and excel, at anything he tried. And he’d be damned if anyone saw him fail. That was one of the things that drew you to him in the beginning. His determination, his drive, it was endearing and it made you appreciate the effort that he put in to every facet of his life. But you’d be lying if you said it didn’t also annoy you just a little bit.
