Korrasami, 5.

  1. "Wait a minute. Are you jealous?"

Korra rubbed her neck and then leaned back and put her feet up on the small table that sat in front of their couch. “Well, that was a long talk but I think I’m getting through to her.”

Asami gently but firmly moved Korra’s legs off the table before sliding on to the couch beside her. “You say that every time you come back, you know.”

Korra shot Asami a crooked grin. “And it’s true every time.”

Asami rolled her eyes. “I’m just not sure what you’re hoping to achieve. I mean, Kuvira’s been defeated… she’s in prison. What do you get out of all these talks?”

Korra’s mouth opened but then snapped shut a moment later. She squinted her sky blue eyes and looked off in the distance. Asami got the feeling she was lost in a memory. At last, Korra spoke again. “I don’t know if I can explain it. I just think… we have more to teach each other, you know? I would have never thought I could learn something from Zaheer, but he actually helped me. Who would have ever thought that?” She turned back to Asami with another smile. “Does that sound crazy?”

Asami shook her head. “No, not when you put it like that. It’s just a lot of time to spend with someone who tried to kill you not so long ago.”

Korra’s lips pursed together. “Wait a minute. Are you…” She peered at Asami with a mischievous glint in her eyes. “… jealous?”

Asami’s eyebrows rose. It was hard not to think about a time when she had been in fact quite jealous… over Mako’s relationship with Korra. But now, sitting beside her impulsive, vibrant, headstrong avatar girlfriend… well, everything was different.

She reached over and brushed Korra’s cheek with her fingertips, eliciting a blush. Asami grinned. She’s the most fearsome creature in the world and I can still make her blush with a look. "Not even a little," she whispered, and then leaned in for a tender kiss.

    When he can feel the weight of his years he tries not to fall back on old habits—instead he bakes as many muffins as his kitchen can possibly produce and invites himself over to somebody’s house. It’s important for him to be near his family, and he ends up watching reality TV or sparring with Sweden or Norway, or doing chores with Iceland, or getting his ass kicked at video games by Finland.

    Denmark’s world meeting “notes” are full of extremely elaborate worldbuilding for his planet of winged, fire-breathing merfolk. If they were organized in chronological order you might have something close to a coherent (but indefinite) storyboard. He also likes to use people as sharpie-canvas.

propeller knight #7!

I realized that I couldn’t really imagine Propeller Knight wearing anything casual, so thanks to this I’ve started to develop the headcanon that he doesn’t really have an entire “lazy” outfit and occasionally just puts on pajama pants or whatever the Shovel Knight-universe equivalent is and goes “See? I can totally dress down. Just look how fun and casual I am.”

(Mostly this was just inspired by the dorky way pajama pants bunch up weird if you try to tuck them in boots though)

Coffee Tag because coffee is awesome

I was tagged by the lovely what-is-much (I love your Gilmore Girls-inspired URL btw :D) to answer these.

1.) Black: Name a series that’s tough to get into but has hardcore fans.

I’m gonna go with Throne of Glass and A Song of Ice and Fire on that one. ToG because the beginnings in each book a little slow but they’re so worth it! And ASOIAF is pretty self-explanatory - the abundance of characters can be off-putting :)

2.) Peppermint mocha: Name a book that gets more popular during the winter or a festive time of year.

Oh, that’s an interesting one :) since My True Love Gave To Me was all over my dash around Xmas, I’m gonna go with that.

3.) Hot chocolate: What is your favorite children’s book?

The Neverending Story and The Little Princess! I was so obsessed with them as a kid, I even had a doll that I named Emily haha.

4.) Double shot of espresso: Name a book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.

The last book that did that was Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins - it kept my eyes glued to the screen except the times when I had to look away to laugh :p

5.) Starbucks: Name a book you see everywhere.

Everywhere as in my dash or the media? I don’t want to give Fifty SoG a shout-out, so let’s go with The Bone Season

6.) That hipster coffee shop: Give a book by an indie author a shout out.

I don’t really know what defines an indie author?

7.) Oops! I accidentally got decaf: Name a book you were expecting more from.

Carrie by Stephen King - I somehow expected it to be bone-chilling horror but it wasn’t, so that was a bit of a letdown.

8.) The perfect blend: Name a book or series that was both bitter and sweet but ultimately satisfying.

the bel dame series by kameron hurley even though i still haven read the last installment

I tag all the coffee and book lovers who want to do this!

#27 Cullen x The Inquisitor, little fluffy and awkward :)

27. “I’m pregnant.”

Cullen’s mouth opened and closed but he was incapable of making a sound. It felt like the air in the room had turned oppressively warm. Finally, he managed a strangled-sounding, “What?”

The clenching of her jaw and a tiny twitch by her eye were the only signs that his normally demonstrative Inquisitor had any emotion about the subject. “I said I’m pregnant.”

“Are… are you sure? How do you…”

Her thick, dark eyebrows rose, making the Vallaslin on her forehead fold into a fascinating new pattern. “How do I know?” She took a deep breath. “Well, my breasts are big and sore, my pants are too tight and I can’t stop throwing up.. oh and I’m…” She looked up at the ceiling, and seemed to tick some numbers off her fingers before waving a hand. “…at least two week’s late with my moon’s blood.” She shrugged. “I’ll get Vivienne to confirm, but I’m fairly sure that all adds up to pregnant.”

He couldn’t seem to stop blinking. “Vivienne? Oh? Not… not Solas…”

Her eyes narrowed and her voice was firm. “No, it has to be Vivienne,” she said, and he didn’t think he imagined the hard edge of her tone.

He was unused to her holding her cards so close to her chest, and the vacuum of doubt left by her reticence was making it hard for him to breathe. “Well, I… that is… I mean…” He looked at her helplessly before letting out the breath he’d been unconsciously holding. “Ellana, how do you feel about this?”

There was a hard glint in her eye as she studied him. “That depends.”

A lump formed in his throat. It occurred to him then that it probably said something about him that he’d never once contemplated the possibility of this happening. “On what?”

Her green-grey eyes met his with a steady gaze. “On how you feel about it.”

It was only in that moment that the fact finally sunk in. The Herald of Andraste… his impulsive, dramatic, loving and kind and fearsome Inquisitor was pregnant… with his baby.

Slowly his lips curved into a grin that felt permanent once it reached its apex. “We’re going to be parents? Ellana…” He took a tentative step forward, feeling more steady the closer he got to her. “This is wonderful news.”

He stood so close she had to crane her neck to look up at him. As she did, he realized she was scrutinizing him closely… almost suspiciously. A part of him felt wounded but before the feeling could sink in, something in her expression softened. “Do you truly think so, ma vhenan?”

The use of the elvish term of endearment filled him with confidence… and a little pride. He reached out and she stepped forward at the same time, and then he was enfolding her in a tight embrace. “I do, I really do,” he whispered into her jet black hair.

They held each other silently for a few heartbeats, and then she spoke into his chest. “Good. I’d hate to have to bring up a fatherless shem.”

He was certain she was kidding, but knew there was at least some truth behind the joke. He rested his chin on the top of her head. “Never…” Unsure how his use of elvish would go over, but determined to show her that he at least partially understood, he added in a quiet voice, “Ma vhenan.”

She pulled away so that she could look at him, and after searching his face and finding only love and acceptance reflected in his gaze, pulled him into a deep and passionate kiss.

Share 10 random facts about yourself and then tag (10) people

Tagged a while back by queeriarty​ so here we are:

1. I have bad circulation and perpetually cold hands, so I start wearing gloves from the first signs of autumn and don’t stop until spring is well and truly in the land. (I’ve amassed quite the pretty little collection of leather gloves by now)

2. I have a tendency to pull off said leather gloves with my teeth.

3. I have a big red birthmark on the back of my left ankle. I’m quite pleased with it because of the many myths about heroes and demigods with some kind of marked ankle i.e. I AM A MYTHOLOGICAL HERO.

4. Somehow koni and I ended up with sweetie as mutual term of endearment. I think it started out ironically but then it stuck and now we’re disgustingly adorable.

5. I have a harp concert in a week or so where I’ll have to play Under The Sea and I’m sort of cringing at the adorableness of that too.

6. I have seen very very little Disney/Dreamworks/whatever and mostly know about them through popcultural osmosis and seeing gifs. (Just watched Road To El Dorado with koni a few days ago to a chorus of HUSBANDS)

7. I hate cycling and will do anything I can to avoid it, which often includes walking for 30+ minutes.

8. I love singing and am decent at it but I feel self-conscious about it, unless I’m singing in a choir. I sometimes hum to myself but I’ll stop the second I notice anyone listening.

9. I’m near-sighted and have been wearing glasses since I was 12, contacts since I was 17.

10. I’m quite physically affectionate but I often don’t allow myself to be because I don’t want to overstep people’s boundaries. If given explicit permission however, I will cuddle like a fluffy clingy leech-koala.

offendwhitedevils tagged me in the 6 selfies challenge, and then @cordialpotions (can’t @ you for some reason!) tagged me in another challenge, so I figured I’d combine them! Here’s six selfies from the past year - so far - that I’ve found satisfactory. Most have been on here at some point or other, but whatever. Hope y’all enjoy!
