Consider: Swimming AU
  • Being from the South, Bitty had been swimming since he could walk (it’s the best way to beat the heat in the summer, and the most fun)
  • When he was 5 he saw synchronized swimming in the summer Olympics and told his mom he absolutely had to do it. Thinking it was just a phase, she signed him up for formal swim lessons. He fell even more in love with the water and when he was 7, he joined the Peach State Synchro team, the first male on the team.

(More under the cut, this got long…)

Nathaniel’s heart skipped a beat. The heat that gnawed at his chest was an ugly mix of gratitude and shame. He tried to speak but had to clear his throat before trying again. “But why? I’ve done nothing but lie to them. I willingly put them all in danger so I could play a little longer. They got hurt last night because of me. Why would they protect me now?”
“You are a Fox,” Andrew said, like it was that simple, and maybe it was.

Pulse-Part 1

You twirled your ring around your finger, feeling his heartbeat pulse through it. You smiled as your soulmate’s heat beat, in tune with your own. You pressed a gentle kiss to it even though you knew that he wouldn’t be able to feel it.

“Is it racing again?” Your best friend, Jake, came up to you and you shook your head.

“No, I think he’s asleep, his heart is so calm, it makes me calm.” You said, finally tearing your eyes away from the red glow of your ring.

Jake hummed, “We have to get to class.” He touched your arm gently, guiding you to your next classroom. You were so grateful for Jake, he kept you grounded. To say you had a tendency to drift off while thinking about your soulmate was an understatement. Ever since you had gotten your ring you had been obsessed with the idea of finding your soulmate.

The idea of soulmates was simple, really. On your first birthday you received a ring that allowed you to feel the pulse of your soulmate’s heart. When you met them the ring turned from a dark red to a light pink. You family had told you that yours was already beating when you first got yours. Your soulmate was older than you. Which, in the grand scheme of things wasn’t really helpful for finding your soulmate. You still remained optimistic, though; you had a soulmate. Some weren’t as lucky. Jake, for example, never received a ring and as far as he knew nobody received a ring with his heartbeat. Something that often scared you, though, was how fast your soulmate’s heart would beat from time to time. It would get erratic and you feared for his safety. Having a heartbeat that erratic that often couldn’t be safe.

When his heartbeat was calm, however, you couldn’t be happier. His soothing pace matched yours and kept you calm. You felt like nothing could touch you when his pulse matched yours. It just so happened that today you had a test and having his calm heartbeat surround you was surely going to help you focus on the test.

This is the first installment of a new soulmate AU fic! I hope you like it!! You can find my masterlist here. If you want a part 2 you can request it here!! Thank you for reading! 

I think Asian racism often gets overlooked, especially since Asians are considered the “model minority” but I believe it needs to be addressed, especially considering the hot topic of “China” in recent years. 

Not all Asians are East Asian, and neither does everyone fit the “model minority” stereotype. And most Asians who live in Asia are much more disadvantaged than Asian-Americans. Plus the fact that the term “model minority” inherently includes white supremacy–Asians are only “okay” because they are sometimes more successful than white Americans. 

I don’t want to hear another “you’re smart just because you’re Asian.” I work my ass off, and if you do too, then you can achieve the same grades as me. 

Asian girls are not docile China dolls nor are they exotic dragon-ladies. You bet I can beat you in a heated debate, but I won’t bow down to you either. Yellow fever is somewhat disgusting. 

Asian men are not all “beautiful” and “feminine.” Those that fit this description are handpicked and have either gotten plastic surgery, intense makeup, and put under harsh diets to fit a certain ideal. 

Please don’t think that Asians have perfect lives… My counselor even told me that I probably wouldn’t understand what mental illness are like and believe me I can sympathize. The amount of pressure some Asian parents put on their children is insane and unless you’re used to it (and even if you are used to it), you would collapse.

Happy birthday to my #1 man... John Muir

Here is a dump of my favorite Muir quotes to commemorate this day:

“This is one of the still, hushed ripe days when we might heat the beating of nature’s heart”

“Of all the paths you walk in life, make sure a few of them are dirt”

“The world is big, and I want to get a good look at it before it gets dark”

“You may be a little cold some nights, on mountain tops about timberline, but you will see the stars, and by and by you can sleep enough in your town bed, or at least in your grave. Keep awake while you can in mountain mansions so rare”

“I’d rather be in the mountains thinking of God, than in church thinking about the mountains”

“Nature is always lovely, invincible, glad, whatever is done and suffered by her creatures, all scars she heals, whether in rocks or water or sky or hearts”

“Few places in this world are more dangerous than home. Fear not, therefore, to try the mountain passes. They will kill care, save you from deadly apathy, set you free, and call forth every faculty into vigorous, enthusiastic action”

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storm’s their energy, care will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn”

“The sun shines not on us, but in us”

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees”

“I am losing the precious days. I am degenerating into a machine for making money. I am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. I must break away and get out into the mountains to learn the news”

“Keep close to nature’s heart…. and break clear away once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean”

“As long as I live, I’ll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing. I’ll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche. I’ll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can.”

“Who wouldn’t want to be a mountaineer! Up here all the world’s prizes seem nothing”

On Glacier National Park: “Give at least a month to this precious reserve. The time will not be taken from the sum of your life. Instead of shortening, it will indefinitely lengthen it and make you truly immortal. Nevermore will time seem short or long, and cares will never again fall heavily on you, but gently and kindly as gifts from Heaven”

On Yellowstone National Park: “…healing, reviving, exhilarating, kept pure by frost and fire, while the scenery is wild enough to awaken the dead”

“The question comes up ‘What are rattlesnakes good for?’ As if nothing that does not obviously make for the benefit of man had any right to exist: as if our ways were God’s ways… Anyway they are all, head and tail, good for themselves, and we need not begrudge them their share of life”

After trying to describe Yosemite: “I can write only to incite good wanderers to come to the feast”

“Even the blind must enjoy these woods, drinking their fragrance, listening to the music of the woods in their groves, and fingering the flowers and plumes and cones in their richly furrowed boles” (I love this because I always forget to use my other senses outside)

Last but not least (for now…), John Muir on ants: “As soon as a vulnerable spot is discovered on man or beast, they stand on their heads and sink their jaws, and though torn limn from limb, they will yet hold on and die biting deeper. When I contemplate this fierce creature so widely distributed and strongly intrenched, I see that much remains to be done ere the world is brought under the rule of universal love and peace”

sunlight leaks through his skin.
he must be an angel
with no visible wings
because the whole room glows
when he smiles like this.

his laughter fills empty gaps:
in your head,
in your lap,
in hollow places
you didn’t know existed.

delicate words
manufactured by
gentle lips.
there’s no darkness when he speaks,
no darkness when you kiss.

two hearts in the room:
one yours, both his.
synchronized beats
pounding in the heat
his body emits
and yours attempts to hold onto.

you’re reaching,
always reaching:
for his hand,
for his light,
for the star in the sky
that’s always hiding,
always so damn out of reach.

you are in love with a boy
who holds too much warmth inside him,
who could never handle
the ice in your heart.

you realize
you cannot hold on forever.
he has a whole world
he belongs to.
he has a whole world
to set fire to.

so, you let his lips
leave yours
and his hips
stop dancing against yours
and you’re left alone
watching him in the sky,
watching him be
everything you wish you could be.

you are in love with a boy
who is out of this world
and you are unable
to reach so far.
he is the sun
and all you can do
is snatch quick glances at him
from wherever you are.

- a lover from out of this world (ms)

Long time no see (Taehyung)


♢ Pairing: Taehyung x Reader

♢ Word count: 2.3k

♢ Genre: Fluff, slightlyyy smutish 

   ⌲ Description: You’re Jimin’s cousin, and the boys come over for a visit. Only you have eyes for a certain someone with a boxy grin and deep voice. Let’s just say things escalated a bit that day. 

It was hot, just way too hot. I’m talking in literal sense right now. The sun had been shining brightly up in the sky the whole day, with no skies in sight. The heat beating down on the people of South Korea, Seoul. It felt like my skin would melt off any second, and the sweat was pouring so it was disgusting. Funny enough, summer had always been my favorite season. I hated the cold, rain and snow. Though when the sun finally came out, I sometimes regret my decision. People in Korea most of the times don’t like to go out in the sun, because they want to keep their skin pale.

I didn’t. 

When it came to many others, I had the opposite opinion. I hated to have pale skin and loved to tan. I wanted to become dark and have always wanted it, yet i’m here complaining about the heat. I was darker than almost any Korean you would meet. People always think i’m half or a foreigner, which is flattering. I think. 

Keep reading

I miss your body heat, and your arms wrapped around me, and the sound of your heart beat in my ear.
