My backyard is overrun with wild strawberries to the point where I have to watch where I step. Once I saw the blooms, 12,000 years of Human Farming Instincts grabbed me by the throat and now I am caring for my little army of fragaria. They don't care though, they're just happy I'm helping them fuck. I am hoping my enemy, the groundhog will let me have some.

I was wondering if you could fully explain the order of friendship tiers in Book Two I'd really appreciate it. Also I'd like to thank you for writing such an and amazing series as this and I can't wait for Book Three
how does a peacock put his train up? is the train really, really light, or are his butt muscles really, really strong, or some combination of the two?
Despite what I often say about peafowl showing off their butts, the train is actually not tail feathers! They are specially modified back and tail covert feathers that sit atop some very sturdy (AND HUGE) tail feathers, like this one from Octavian II:
So basically what they do is sink their chest way down, which points the shafts of their feathers down, and bring their tail knob up at the same time, which lifts their tail feathers behind/under the train to raise the eye-end of the feathers, and that big ruffled shakey-shake he gives helps the feathers to fall into place in that classic arc- which, in order to get the bottom edge to lay properly, they have to drop their wings down low, which is why if you’ve ever seen one dance, they have their wings drooped and wiggling.
You can see the “tail behind the train” best in white peafowl, because their train feathers do not have the integrity of the other color morphs. Look below at the solid white pointed “halo” behind the bird’s head; that’s his actual tail:
And here’s a view from behind of the tail supporting the train (and how the wings are drooped):
From there it’s just a matter of keeping their tail knob up so their tail feathers stay behind the train to support it, and their chest down to keep the feathers oriented correctly.
ok but obi-wan was in the ship with all the handmaidens for how many days and since it's kenobi fan club rules in my head at all times can you imagine tpm obi-wan having to rebuff awkward teenage flirting and constantly blushing. poor padme 10 years later having to hear them swooning over his new hair and wondering if he has an 8pack
I never… thought about that… anon your mind….
Just imagine young Obi-wan stuck with Padmé’s handmaidens when Padmé’s not here and the poor thing is like “ladies. Ladies, please. I’m flattered but you’re all like… 15? Isn’t Rabé 14? You’re basically children, please stop inviting me to your bedroom’ but he makes the effort of learning all their names and talking to them so for the next 10 years Padmé has to hear all about the ‘amazing Obi-wan who can do nothing wrong ever’ and that’s why when she meets him again in aotc she can only think ‘I will hear about his hair and beard for the next decade, goddammit Obi-wan, NO stop, don’t say hi to Karté she’s the only one who- dammit, he did it again, she’s blushing, the last sane one is gone’
Currently thinking about what the boys sound like during sex. Bye
well well well, now you got me thinking…
How BTS sound during sex.
genre: smut (obviously)
word count: 1.3K (I wrote this instead of working sooo happy wednesday, y’all)
as confident as the man is, he’s a shy cutie, we all know this. He gets so flustered when too much attention is on him. That being said, this bitch is loud! Therefore, I think at the start of the session he lets out small quiet moans and pants, but as he gets more into it and he’s feeling it, he loses control over his sounds. Like, he’s gonna try because he’s slightly embarrassed by the sounds he’s making but at some point he taps out and his mind is only on you and how you’re making him feel and this dude can get loud! I imagine you smirking at the first few loud ass moans Jin lets out and him getting all bashful with that cute little smile he does, and he’d put his face in your neck to hide his blush but he’d let out another moan muffled against your skin and you’d moan in response and then he’s GONE. His hips would snap harder all of sudden and his moans are higher pitched and much less abashed… until it’s over, and then he’s all grinning and embarrassed and you’re fucking giggling and cooing.
sexy little grunts, sharp breaths, and occasional low moans. Like at first, he’s just letting out sharp breaths and panting at the sensation, but then as things start feeling better and better, he starts to lose his composure a bit. He’ll grip onto your body somewhere as he tries to restrain his vocalizations but then the grunts start. AND THEN OOF then the low moans come in, bless. Also I imagine some cursing as he kisses your neck and collarbones. I think his noises depend on position too?? Like if he’s taking you from behind I imagine more grunts and curse words. In missionary, I think it’s a bit more sensual and he’s letting out sharp breaths and he’s still cursing but it’s in a breathier tone. If you’re riding him, he’s moaning bruh. He’s letting out these quiet low moans and he’s also doing this low chuckle thing occasionally as he watches your body, like out of disbelief, you get what I’m saying? He’s also complimenting how fucking hot you are. Honestly, the man makes you feel like a goddess when you’re on top.
jesus lord have mercy on my soul. The man has no control over his vocalizations, if it feels good, the whole damn dorm knows. Not that I think he’s screaming at the top of his voice, but like, when you clench him in a particular way and it sends pleasure through his body, he’s gonna let out a sudden loud exclamation like “AH” hahaha. And then he’s gonna smirk and praise you for what the fuck you just did as he continues letting out lower quieter moans. Lots of drawn out moans with this one. And as he gets closer to his high, he just gets louder bro. Honestly, might be the loudest of the bunch. But his sounds are so hot, you’re moaning right there with him and just, yeah. Sex is probably limited to your place or when no one is home at the dorm because everyone fucking hears you.
STOP. This game isn’t fun anymore, it is a fucking Wednesday morning and I- hey, Joon baby, come get ya girl, she’s ready… so much dirty talk and so many low moans directly in your ear. This bitch is smirking as he tells you the filthiest shit, but it all has “baby” or “beautiful” or “you queen” attached to it so like you’re turned on and fucking soft. The moans bro, his low voice? AHHHHH sorry, can you tell he’s my bias wrecker? He’s so vocal, like, he’s not loud, but he’s always complimenting or making dirty ass comments or he’s moaning and grunting. Just imagine these low whispered comments and sounds just loud enough for you and only you, and that’s intentional bitch. Only you hear these things and only he’s allowed to same them to you. When he’s finishing, he grips your body and bites his lower lip as a growling type of moan fills your ears and it’s the loudest he gets the whole time. Afterwards he’s all smiley cuz you’re fucked out and he’s feeling fucking good.
is it stereotypical to say Jimin whines? Well, THE BOY WHINES! It’s not like a legit straight up whine, but like, the mixture of a moan with a like a whimper. Like he’s moaning, but it feels so good that he’s like in disbelief and it turns into fucking whining. Does this make sense??? The tone is breathy and a bit higher in pitch and he draws the sound out so it starts as a moan and ends in him whining. Probably asks you questions like “How the fuck are you this good?” “Oh my god, do you know what you do to me?” Like, sex with Jimin has you feeling like a queen. He’ll also probably grunt a bit as he tries to conceal his sounds, but like Jin, he reaches a certain point where he just can’t hold it back. His whines get more desperate as he nears his finish and, loves, you just be basking in that shit.
….bruh I’m over this shit. I just took the deepest breath becuase THIS MAN!!! My bias for this man is about to smack y’all in the face but the duality of this dude oh my fucking god. Some times he’s grunting loudly, saying filthy shit, asking you about how fucking good you’re making him feel and if you like what he’s doing. Then other times, he’s giggly, whining, moaning, and telling you how pretty and amazing you are. Like the dude is wild. The type to stop all movements in the middle of a session just to tell you very seriously and genuinely how amazing he thinks you are. Like, I think Tae struggles to express himself verbally so he’s more of a “let me show you how much I love you through action and affection” type of dude, so when having sex the intimacy of being with you like that allows him the space to open up and suddenly he’s telling you how much happiness you’ve brought him and how he hopes you always keep hold of your dreams and just all this sweet shit that totally contrasts to the way his hips were just snapping into you ruthlessly. Expect lots of moans and sudden gasps and sounds like “ah” though. The man simply doesn’t care if he’s loud or not, he doesn’t even realize he’s making noises because he’s so lost in the moment and the pleasure and the way you look, sound, and feel. And his voice? The depth and lowness? Oh my god, all of that, how are you even alive?! His voice alone would fucking kill you dude, unreal.
similar to Jimin honestly but a bit more controlled. I think he’s pretty quiet up until the point where it’s feeling REALLY good and then he simply can’t hold back anymore. Still quiet, but the moans come out and they turn into whining. I imagine a lot of “oh my god” coming from him when he’s in the moment. Like another one who just can’t believe how good you’re making him feel. I also think all the members would enjoy hearing your sounds, but Guk in particular. It’s that hardoworking perfectionist in him, hearing you is kind of like receiving feedback and gratification for what he’s doing. Like he wants to know how he’s making you feel. If he knows you’re enjoying yourself, that allows him to fully lose himself in it. I also imagine those sort of “ah” sounds coming from him, but like a series of them. Whereas with Tae and Hobi they let out loud random ones, Jungkook repeats the sound several times in a row. His moans are on the whinier side and it is fucking perfection to your ears. Like damn, this dude.
saw someone else’s zukka meta a while ago that was Quite Good but only talked about why Sokka is good for zuko. do you have any thoughts on (or have you already written about) why Zuko is good for Sokka?
this is a great question because i feel like a lot of people don’t actually care about this! not to sound salty (…er than usual) but i think a lot of people are just like “well why wouldn’t sokka like zuko. i had a crush on him, so so should everyone.” (this is also true of a lot of reasoning for mai/zuko, katara/zuko, or what have you.)
in truth, sokka is out of zuko’s league! no offense to my boy zuzu but he simply cannot compete with suki or yue. and anyone who says “well he’s the firelord” as if that’s a positive attribute rather than a turn-off needs to reexamine their own views of monarchy. if sokka were to get with zuko, it would be in spite of the fact that he’s royalty, a fact which is, obviously, a massive L.
that said, zuko is good for sokka. for one thing, a lot of the reasons that sokka is good for zuko also goes the other way. they have quite parallel arcs, similar insecurities, and similar needs. and the boiling rock is pretty much exhibit A as to why zuko is good for sokka.
Ok so I know about Inky and the Glitches but,,, What's Spectrumverse if I may ask?-
Basically, it started with me thinking “hey, Ink would probably get along with Nightmare way better than he would with Dream”, and then I was hit a big plot idea, which decided it wanted to stay, and then my love for family/friendship dynamics kicked in, and this is the mess I ended up with:
In DWIT, Remus almost called Deceit before Thomas stopped him. What if Thomas didnt get to stop him in time and Deceit appeared but Deceit was totally unprepared like Virgil that one time ;) what will deceit reaction be?
I have a question about Mason's carousel scene. My first two plays my detective had been bitten on the neck so when he kissed her there I didn't really pay attention to the fact that he was kissing her scar, I thought it was just an incidental mention. This third time she was bitten on the wrist and Mason kissed her there instead. Is he trying to offer her comfort and/or replace bad memories with good ones? Just curious. Also, this is my favorite scene, it is beautifully written.
Oh, I am so tempted to answer this but spoilers….and I have given away quite a few more in-depth stuff about M recently…
You really made me write a 2.6k fic after I said I wouldn’t write a fic, hum. Have some ‘drunk, tired and jealous but will never admit it’ Senator Kenobi who just wanted to spend one quiet night bitching about other politicians with Anakin:
in the episode Failsafe, when everyone is arguing after SW reveals what will happen to Adora with the failsafe, Catra yells "She doesn't care about Adora! Adora can't even care about [unintelliglble]!"
Ohhh, you’re right! It’s hard to make out but I’m 99% sure she said “Adora can’t even care about herself!” which is pretty much the only way that sentence would make sense anyway.
(thanks for the helpful subtitles, Netflix)
We been knew, but also it’s nice to hear that acknowledgement from Catra!
