sweet tooth

Carry On Valentine’s Celebration - Day 2 - Valentine’s Chocolate.


For some reason it came as a surprise to me that Baz has the biggest sweet-tooth. Baz always seemed like the person who’d abandon all sweets just because a love for sugar could be seen as childish. He even used to make fun of my sweet tooth and my (small!) scone addiction. Never would i’ve seen it coming that Baz is, in fact, worse than me. 

It started with me noticing the huge amount of sugar that he seemed to like in his hot drinks. His tea is more sugar than tea and milk together and his coffee isn’t even coffee; it could count as a liquid candy bar.

Later, during The Great Chocolate Debate–in which Penny tried to fight Baz on white chocolate not counting as chocolate–I discovered Baz’ strong passion for white chocolate. “It’s only butter, milk and sugar,” according to Penny, but apparently Baz loves that. 

Cocoa butter! So it does count as chocolate,” Baz would argue. Baz only likes white chocolate. Penny likes all but white chocolate. I don’t really have a preference.

Anyhow, when Penny and I were shopping for Valentine’s Day, it wasn’t hard for me to find something for Baz. There were multiple good chocolate shops in London for me to find something for Baz. Most of them were lacking a bit in the white chocolate department though. “Because it’s not actual chocolate!” Penny would push. 

I ended up going for a box with 15 chocolates that I could select myself. I ended up leaving the store with a box full of white chocolates and a disappointed Penny who was muttering some unpleasant things about white chocolate.

“Help yourself, he’ll be home within a few minutes,” Bunce said over her shoulder as she was already heading into her room again after letting me in. I had known that I would be early, Snow was still walking the neighbor’s dog like he did each saturday morning. I didn’t mind being early though. I spent most of my time at Simon’s and Penny’s apartment so it felt like a second home, really. 

I walked into the kitchen to get myself a snack and something to drink.

As I shut the apartment door behind me, I heard Baz greeting me from the living room. “There you are,” I heard him say, his voice muffled.

I smiled to myself at the sound of him. “Hi,” I said as I walked into the living room where Baz was seated on the couch. “Sorry I’m a bit late I was walking–”

I went completely still as soon as I got a view of what Baz is holding in his lap. “Baz,” I said, and then flinched at how sad and betrayed I sounded. 

“What’s–” He started as he followed my graze. His eyes locked on the box of chocolates in his lap. “What?” Baz asked carefully, “Were these meant to be yours? I’m sorry I though–you don’t really eat white chocolate and–”

“No, Baz, they are yours… It’s just, they weren’t for right now.”

“Oh. Okay,” He said as he stood up from the couch, box of chocolates in hand. He walked towards me, handing me the box with the chocolates. “Here,” he said, giving me a soft peck on the lips. “Sorry.”

“It’s okay,” I said, pressing the box back into Baz’ hands. The both of us noticed that I was still sounding hurt. 

“For when were they?” Baz asked. 

I stared at Baz before answering, “It’s Valentine’s Day this Tuesday, you know.”

A grin formed on Baz’ face. “You bought me a Valentine’s present?”

“Why do you sound so surprised?” I grumbled. 

“We didn’t do anything for Valentine’s last year, I didn’t think we’d be doing anything for this year.”

“We didn’t do anything last year because you were still at Watford and I was… Well, I wasn’t in the best state of mind. I don’t know, I just wanted to give you something this year.”

Baz’ grin turned into a genuine smile. He wrapped his arms around me as he spoke with his lips against my air, “You told me you were going to be a terrible boyfriend.”

Baz chuckled as he hugs me close. I just huffed in response, not all that amused. 

“Thank you for the chocolates,” Baz said, backing out of the hug. “And sorry for eating them before I was supposed to.”

“Yeah, it’s fine.” 

“Does that mean I can eat them all now?”

“Well I’m not going to give you a half filled box of chocolates for Valentine’s am I?” 

“I’m sorry!” Baz said, retreating to the couch. As he sat down he held up the box. “Want one?” 

I sighed before giving in. I made myself comfortable next to him as we emptied out the box together. 

“They taste even better knowing you bought them as a Valentine’s present,” Baz commented.

“I don’t want to hear it.”

At that moment Penny walked in. She quickly noticed the chocolates we were eating. “Weren’t those–”

“I don’t want to hear it!” 

Dancing with the Linebacker - Chapter 15

Rated: M (swearing)
This is all over the place, and I struggled to write it.  Almost gave up on it several times with the thought about re-writing it completely, to the point where I had it all highlighted and just about deleted everything, but I didn’t, so it is what it is…

Kristoff was snoring softly in her ear, but that was not what was keeping her awake.  It was a multitude of things running though her mind that would not let her rest.  First and foremost was her worry over Kristoff.

“Oh, um Hi.  Um, can I get by please?  That’s my seat.”

The man sitting on the aisle seat groaned softly with a dip of his head.  He got up to let her in as he rolled his eyes.  Great, she thought, this guy is going to be fun to sit beside for 5 hours.

Fairy Tail Chapter 534

I had a feeling that the chapter was coming out and gosh did this chapter deliver from last time. After the sadness of the last chapter, this one gave me new hope while also crushing some of it.

Let’s get into this review, Jellal out there fighting Acnologia, which is a bad idea considering he didn’t do any damage at all before

I like Jellal’s magic because it’s interesting. It zig zags like a meteor, plus he’s flying.

See this is what I was talking about, Acnologia’s just going to eat the magic and then fire it back, I’m surprised he hasn’t blasted them yet.

Oh shit, is Jellal ok, that blast was crazy (poor blue Pegasus they got tossed, lol everyone’s wearing uniforms, guilds sure are different)

That’s fucking crazy, he split the OCEAN in two!! Man Jellal, I think Acnologia’s just playing around with you, he could kill you easily.

Poor Anna, I don’t know how she’s opening them, I guess she’s using celestial magic?

Ha lol, I wonder who it is. Fuck you Zeref.

Oh my god, can someone do something like Lucy we need you.

Woow Zeref, at least you still got your sense of humor, what if someone ran in right now, would they go back in time or would that not work?

He’s still a jerk but he’s saying some nice things. Wait if he’s going to keep his memories then when he becomes human, he’s going to have to remember all the people he’s hurt, I feel that his emotions will come back and he’ll start to hate himself again.

Oh shit what the hell, dang it I thought they would fade when he died but popping makes sense too.

WOW I CALLED IT!! I knew her writing skills would come in handy, and where did she get that pen, does she just carry it around with her?!? She’s matching Levi’s skill, maybe even better. Another reminder that Lucy is very smart.

Maybe they can shove Acnologia inside? It’s connected to the past now so they wouldn’t be able to use it anyway unless they send him to the past? That would be stupid though.

Like what do you mean as soon as he sees that? In the last panel he already saw it? SHIT Jellal don’t you dare try sacrificing yourself we already had too much of that in this arc

Bitch NO!!!!

OH Shit!!!!!Yeah Zeref he looks shocked bet you didn’t see that coming,

Shit round 2, Natus’s not only referring to gramps but also to himself (since he is now not dying)

Woah what the fuck!!!?! What’s wrong with Lucy? That letter is glowing, were they all glowing when she rewrote them or is that one special?!? Man I wish I knew what that means.

The next chapter is The Strongest Power and so many thing could happen, Natsu and Zeref could take this fight to the past, Jellal could shove Acnologia in the Time Lapse, Lucy is connected to Natsu somehow. Is this what Mavis was thinking!?! The strongest power, in Fairy Tail it’s always friendship. And on the panel it says where in the world will Natsu and Lucy’s friendship take them!?! Not sure but can we see some of Natsu’s memories please or a Nalu moment!!!
