Fwb au. Which I know you've done before. But I always want fwb au's. Alternatively, ex-sex where they're broken up but can't get enough of each other.
It starts when he strikes out with this gorgeous redhead. Clarke claps him on the back and says, “It’s probably because you’re so ugly.”
“You’re a good friend,” he says.
“I’m the best friend,” she agrees. “I’m such a good friend I’ll blow you. To make you feel better.”
He chokes on his drink. “Sorry, what?” She cannot possibly have said that. It was something else. Something that rhymes with blow. Show, maybe. She’ll show him–something. A funny cat meme or something. That’s what friends do when their friends get shot down. Not–
“I’ll suck your dick,” Clarke says, thumping him on the back. “Since no one else is going to.”
Hi there! I really love your blog! Anyway, do you have any recommendation for USUK fics with astronaut!Alfred or anything space theme? I've been listening to the song 'Space Oddity' and I just can't stop thinking of space-themed USUK xD
Thank you! I completely agree with you on the importance of David Bowie and space-themed USUK. Have you seen Labyrinth? It’s the best movie ever made starring David Bowie and his tight, tight pants.
The Voice (by Teenage Mouse) - The launch pad was probably a bad place to start flirting with the voice in Alfred’s earpiece before an 18-month space trip.
Boom de Yada (by Liete) - Alfred sings to his husband from space. It’s wonderfully geeky :)
Mission Accomplished (by Zo One) - “They had surrendered themselves to the fact that they would drift through space forever, trapped in stasis. Luckily for them, Naval Chief Emma Peeters believes in happy endings.”
Today in the NASA Village… The Latest Fashion Sucks.
Have you ever wondered what science is happening on board
station? What opportunities are there for scientists? What benefits will the
science bring? What experiments are on board and what in the world where the
results? Check out NASA’s International Research and
Technology web page to answer all these questions!
What better way to introduce you to the world of science
happening on board the International Space Station than to introduce you to Liz
Warren, Ph.D., one of the NASA Village scientists!
says, “I think I was born to be a scientist! I have always been inquisitive
about the world around me and I have always been full of questions. My parents
fostered that curiosity, encouraged me to explore, and provided me with every
opportunity to learn.” Liz describes her
career journey as one that was all about choices. She thought she would have to
choose between NASA and becoming a biologist/physiologist. Then she learned
about a space shuttle mission dedicated to space life sciences and realized she
could do both. Liz devotes her career, not only to science, but communicating
the science to others. Who said a scientist couldn’t do it all!
latest fashion onboard the International Space Station sucks in a good way. Spaceflight affects the human body in some strange ways; bones get weaker,
muscles get weaker, the heart gets weaker, the immune system is dysregulated,
and there are other changes as well. We want space travelers to be functional
when they land back on Earth (or on Mars), so NASA villagers work very hard on
countermeasures to mitigate those changes.
why is this fashion being studied in space? Perhaps you have noticed that
astronauts in space look a little, well puffy? Without gravity’s influence on
blood circulation, fluids accumulate in the upper body. This redistribution may
be contributing to vision impairment in some astronauts as pressure may be
elevated behind the eyes and around the optic nerves. The Russian chibis suit
is designed to counteract the tendency for fluids to gather in the upper body
by applying lower body negative pressure. Chibis works like a
household vacuum cleaner to suck astronauts into the pants, load the bottoms of
their feet, and expand veins and tissues of the lower body. By sucking blood
and other body fluids back to the lower body, swelling in the face and elevated
pressure in heads of astronauts may be avoided.
yearlong mission embarked upon by Scott Kelly and Mikhail Kornienko will be the
first to test these pants out as part of the Fluid Shifts investigation, one of
the most complex experiments undertaken by astronauts living aboard station. Fluid
Shifts seeks to test the relationship between
the head-ward fluid shift and a pattern NASA calls visual
impairment and intracranial pressure syndrome (VIIP).
VIIP involves changes in vision, the structure of the eyes and indirect signs
of increased pressure in the brain. More than half of American astronauts have
experienced VIIP symptoms during long spaceflights.
So why might you care about
these rubber space pants? The results are expected to improve our understanding
of how intracranial pressure impacts eye shape and vision. This could benefit
people confined to long term bed rest or suffering from a disease that creates
swelling/pressure in the brain.
