A/N: I’m getting ready to begin finals in a few weeks and I have a million projects coming up and I’m not sure when I’ll have time to put out the next segment to this series, so I would appreciate it if you guys could be patient with me
In the mean time, enjoy part six!
You had reconciled with Alex, Hercules, and John, who all promised to never meddle in your love life again. “It’s doesn’t really matter,” you told them. “Jefferson and I wouldn’t have worked out anyways.”
All the same, they were sympathetic, and though you could tell they were trying to act like things were normal, they steered away from the subject of Thomas Jefferson like the plague. They refused to bring up the topic of Soulmates at all and they definitely avoided talking about Jefferson, Madison, or anyone remotely related to them.
Then there was the matter of your Soulmate, himself. Thomas went back to being his cocky, arrogant self, except when it came to you. To him, it was like you didn’t exist. He avoided any contact with you and if his gaze was in your direction, it passed right over you as if there was no one there.
Chapters: 1/8 Fandom: Young Justice - All Media Types, Young Justice (Cartoon), DCU, DC Animated Universe Rating: Teen And Up Audiences Warnings: Major Character Death Relationships: Bart Allen/Khaji Da/Jaime Reyes, Bart Allen/Jaime Reyes Characters: Bart Allen, Jaime Reyes, Khaji Da, Other Character Tags to Be Added Additional Tags: Family, Fluff and Angst, Time Skips, Symbiotic Relationship
Summary: Jaime Reyes is the 3rd Blue Beetle. His Scarab is fused to his spine, and the only thing that can cause a Reach Scarab to unfuse from their host is the death of the host. What happens when that time comes? Will there be a new hero ready to continue the Blue Beetle tradition?
This is legit kinda crazy…I don’t think I’ve ever written so much for one project in such a short amount of time…Anyway, take a look if you’re interested, tell me what you think. Hope you like it.
1. What is a recent happy thing in your life, and what is a current struggle (serious or not)?
recent happy thing: being into a new ship? one that’s actually alive, as in there are new posts/fics/art every day? like, for real. it feels so good to be into something and see there are more than five people still into it with you. I don’t know, waking up to new posts in the tag and the like? it makes me feel like I have something to look forward to. otherwise the only happy thing in my life atm is my friends everything else is uneventful and I’m tired ://
current struggle: finding a job. and when I find something that I’m totes ready to consider? ‘competence required: speaking dutch’
2. What is a character that you identify strongly with, that you just “get”?
Aled Last from Radio Silence. We’re not the same, but damn, it was quite something to read that book and think ‘holy shit that’s pretty much me??’ because it had never happened to me before??
3. What’s something you want to share, but can’t tell anyone in person (either because it’s too silly or too complicated or whatever)?
most of the things I’d like to share but can’t are things that people would find annoying, and call me a party ruiner for voicing them haha. mostly stuff about objectifying celebrities, rpf, and some fandom/fanfiction stuff (but that last one is more of a personal thing rather than a ‘everyone should think like me and stop doing it’ thing.)
4. What’s an odd habit of yours?
I had no idea so I asked my sister and she said ‘when you talk to people and at some point you don’t know what to say you make humming sounds and it’s the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen. yes. yes you do that all the time.’ ??? like I knew I hummed when there’s a silence and then I stop myself because god bérénice why are you humming for nothing. but to strangers?? right after being awkward? dammit
5. What would you like to see more of on tumblr?
less bashing stuff before seeing them lmao. and more barduil I miss the good old days so much. ;w;
6. What’s a name you’d like to be called (can be a nickname, a chosen name, or a given name)?
uuuh I’m fine with my current name, Bérénice (and all the nickname variants of it), but I like Aaron as well, though no one ever calls me that so I don’t know how I really feel about it?
I’ve just released the pelennors url, if you want it, feel free to go grab it. I was finally ready to let it go so I went ahead and did that.
This also means that I will no longer be tracking the ‘pelennors’ tag. From now on please tag me as ‘usermarleena’. I will also still keep checking the ‘userorlandobloom’ tag every once in a while in case people ignore this post. If you want me to see the posts you wanna tag me in, the new tag is the way to go. If you’re going to just ignore this or won’t check what the tag is, then you really can’t be mad at me for not reacting to/reblogging things.

Some of these will not apply to many people so pls take them with a grain of salt. Also I’ve been collecting these pretty much for the two years I’ve been in college so it’s not a guide, they’re just… random I guess.
Warning - specially tailored for super shy people aka me
There’s a thing called the ‘first week window of endless oportunities’. It’s when groups are still forming and everyone’s desperate to make friends. This is the time to put your best self forward (I’m not saying be fake, just a little extra friendly).
Leave. Your. Door. Open. Do it. Even if you have a roommate. Best way to make friends the first week.
Actually get out of your room. You’re not going to meet many people if you hole up in your room. If you have a tv room or people are watching a movie, I don’t care if you’re not interested in what they’re watching, go.
If you have the balls to go to the room nextdoor and introduce yourself then you probably can skip this section by all means do it!
But if you don’t, going from door to door asking for help with your laundry takes a lot less courage + you will learn how to do laundry. Asking to borrow something (pencil, hair tie, hair drier) also works.
If you’re staying at a residence hall, ask to sit with people at lunch! Nobody is going to say no, i promise.
Similarly if you see someone alone, ask them to have lunch with you!
Also if you meet someone you get along with, as soon as you can, ask for their number ‘so you can go to the dinning hall together’.
Remember people’s names - it makes people feel like you actually care about them. I know it’s hard but make an effort. ~Also it just gets annoying when someone asks about your name for the fourth time~. Use mnemonics if you have to.
Asking what someone’s major is and where they’re from is standard procedure when you meet them but it doesn’t make for an interesting conversation. Think of other questions!
Make sure to arrive about 10 min early to your classes. There’ll be very few people and so it’ll be easier to strike a conversation (actually people will probably talk to you without you having to say anything which is g r e a t)
Say yes - as a rule of thumb, your social life should prevail over your academic life the first two weeks. This is the time where you’re not really pressed for time. Say yes to watching movies, say yes to going to lunch, say yes to going to campus events (and even to parties). Obviously don’t do anything that makes you really unconfortable but do try to step out of your comfort zone
Make friends with an upper-classman from your same major. Or at least be on speaking terms. Talk to them on Facebook, ask them about your major, just use any random idc excuse to introduce yourself, it doesn’t really matter how you do it.
Don’t go home every weekend, even if you live close by. You’ll miss out on the best of campus life and some of the most fun memories with your new friends.
Keeping your old friends
If you know you’re going home for the weekend, try to finish most of your assignments/studying and make time to hang out with your friends. Spending time with them is the best way to keep those friendships alive.
But! Don’t worry too much if you can’t come home or make time for your friends too often, you just have to make an effort to text them regularly. It will come naturally if it’s your best friend, but don’t forget to set a reminder to text other close friends at least once every two weeks.
You may think you don’t care now but you will once you come home for the summer.
If any of your friends are staying in your hometown for college, be ready for them to get another friend group. That doesn’t mean they’ve forgotten about you, but don’t be mad if they seem to have a lot more plans that don’t involve you. You can always ask to tag along some time and maybe even become friends with these people!
Some people you’ll just lose contact with. Don’t fret it.
Please print out or buy a calendar that has a whole page for each month. With boxes preferably *shameless plug*. You may think you have it all under control but there’s nothing like being able to see all your due dates, hang out plans and laundry days at a glance. (Also js but the pilot frixion are perfect to use on calendars because they’re erasable).
request? yes “ Hiiiiii! I have a request if you’re taking them still, a 13rw (I’m a huge fan of your blog btw) where the reader is dating Zach and he figures out that Bryce did something to her (you can decided) and he loses his shit and attacks him. ”
pairing(s): zach x fem!reader , bryce x fem!reader , alex x fem!reader (platonic)
warning(s): mentions of rape
a/n: i skipped writing the details for the fighting scene because i’m not really good with writing scenes like that, sorry!! but 13rw requests are closed !! i wrote this in a different perspective because i can’t even imagine doing this in a reader’s pov. it made me get so much anxiety writing it, so sorry if this isn’t as good as my other fics. oh, and if any of you readers were wondering, i am willing to write girlxgirl or boyxboy. just shoot me a request and i’ll happily accept. i’m sorry that it seems like i always write about fem!readers :(
words: 1169 (hehe)

It’s been days since Y/N was last seen in Liberty High.
I couldn’t decide on what ship to write for Valentine’s Day, so instead I offer these 100-word drabbles, containing Papyrus x Many (but not at the same time :P). All are in the Undertale-verse, unless otherwise marked.
a note to myself, and fellow trans people who might have people in their life telling them otherwise: it is okay to prioritize your transition.
it is okay to make your transition (however that looks for you-hormones, surgeries, legal changes, wardrobe changes, social transition, etc.) the top priority in your life. it is not shallow to put such high importance on these changes. if you feel you need it, you are not being superficial for making it a priority.
it is okay to save all or most of your money for transition-related costs. spending money on your transition is not frivolous spending. if all or most of your money is going toward making you feel more like yourself, not a cent is being wasted.
it is okay to start hanging out less with people who do not support you and your decision to be true to yourself. it is okay to prefer spending time and energy on those who love and accept you as you are. if it comes down to it, as painful as it can be, it is okay to spend less time with someone or to cut them out of your life entirely if they continuously make you feel bad for transitioning. you are more important than their misguided opinions about you.
it is okay to wait to take other life steps (e.g., school/career changes) until you are at a point in your transition where you feel ready and confident enough to do so. there is nothing wrong with you for taking longer than some people do to journey into adulthood because your dysphoria holds you back. it is not irresponsible of you to wait to take on responsibilities until you feel more at home in your body and in the world.
- Subaru was the car company for lesbians to get out and stay out in. Now it’s Jeep and they don’t even have a Dana Fairbanks!
- People didn’t care that there was a masculine character with a feminine character, like Shane and Carmen. But now people find that odd. They want couples that look like Brittany and Santana.
- Oh and now Butch is a bad word? This one is still lost on me!
- Some of these kids haven’t even seen The L Word. And that was like a requirement when I was younger.
- Apparently we now have to clarify that trans woman that are also lesbian, or people of color that are lesbians are included. Like ma… of course, y'all were always included!
*If you do not include these folks, well you suck, please leave! We don’t want you here bitch!
- There are new lines within the LGBT+ community, ones that divide us out a lot more. Dude, we call it The Family for a reason. We is Family yo, we are all here we are all queer, it’s good.
*And that includes non-binary, fluid, asexual, and all y'all people too!! The +… y'all make the community go from an A to an A+… y'all important and y'all matter!! All y'all.
- Labels have always been an issue, but recently now if you use terminology mistakenly.. it’s a personal attack. But for a long time, you just politely corrected people and went about your day. Like yo I’m sorry I fucked up, but I fuck up my own address (that I’ve had for years) on the regular. We talk wrong sometimes, it’s not always personal.
*and to the folks that do mislabel other on purpose, fuck you, get up off my post!
So… I have some how managed to become an old lesbian some how. And I guess it’s cool. But like… I’m only 24 y'all. I know we progressive n shit… but like I already have grey hairs, I am not ready to be old yet!
