beat invitational

@sparkelingsparkles came up with this incredible headcanon that kagehina would, against all odds, have the tidiest apartment ever, and here’s the ridiculous reason why…


Yachi procrastinated visiting Kageyama and Hinata until late in the autumn of their first year at university.

For the most part, she had been afraid of the travel (Tokyo is far, even on the fast train), and of getting lost in a city so much more expansive than her own, and what if someone stole her bags? What if she got kidnapped?

There were many, many things to fear, but perhaps the thing that worried Yachi most was the potential state of the apartment she’d be staying in. She could only imagine the squalor the boys might be living in, now that they’re alone.

Kageyama isn’t so much of a concern. He’s a minimalist, she knows, keeps only the necessities, and he’s neat enough in and of himself, though he is easily distracted, so much so that mess might just go unnoticed, in favour of volleyball, or food. But Hinata…

Hinata is many, many things, but tidy is absolutely not one of them.

The wrist loop for Trixie’s leash sat under the ball of your foot, as you balanced your chair on its back two legs, with only the foot that was covering the leash keeping you upright. You scrolled through your phone, done with the breakfast sandwich in front of you, until you noticed Trixie stand up from under the table.

“What’s up, Trickle?” You asked, noticing the gray dog’s ears perk up. “Trixie..?” You looked up at the sidewalk around you to see if there was another dog that had caught Trixie’s attention. “….Trixie…..?”

RAVENCLAW STUFF

- 2 am whole-house conversations in the common room because everyone stays up late for one reason or another

- days where the entire tower is completely silent save for the turning of pages, scratching of quills, and rustling of paper and books and soft footfalls

- really intense debates about tiny details in stories

- aggressive note-passing in class, in the common room, at the lunch table, about casual conversation or full on discussions because most prefer written conversations to speaking directly to one another

- whole-house sleepovers which include shitty drinking games pertaining to the story one sober ravenclaw is reading aloud

- passive aggressive competitions in class between overly academic ravenclaws to see who can answer the most questions correct

- alternatively, lazy just already really smart ravenclaws having passive aggressive competitions about who can get away with goofing off the longest (bonus points if its in potions or transfigurations)

- getting detentions because whispered debates get out of hand, or because they’re not paying attention in class cause that book is too damn good

- bewitching shit on halloween in increasingly creative ways to scare fellow housemates. eventually the prefects put an end to this because someone enchanted the books and no one can get shit done

- ravenclaws in cuddle piles, loafing around on sundays because everything was done on friday and saturday

- ravenclaws who are excessively touchy because everyone is always so engrossed in what they’re doing that nobody cares if they’re being used as pillows or armrests or whatnot

- ravenclaws organizing historical reenactment flash mobs because they’re bored

- dramatic duets and whole-house sing-a-longs to musicals and wizard bands

- the occasional burst of loud swearing or exclamation because people finALLY understand what the hell they’re looking at

- really creative insults/swears

- well why dont you shove a fucking CORN STALK up my ASSHOLE, helen, cause ill be damned if i dont need motivation to finish this fucking shit essay about a dick who took too many in the 1700s

- legit not caring or attending about half the classes because you dont have time for them when youre pursuing your own interests

- so many students becoming animagi just to fuck with people

-ravenclaws doing their own tattoos for shits and giggles, and easily removing them because damn if they havent found a way

- the entire house just not leaving the common room occasionally because some students have a mini project going on, some are overwhelmed by stress, some just dont care to go anywhere, some are practicing practical spells, some are fucking, and everyone decided to conveniently organize this all on one day to fuck with the rest of the school

- ravenclaw couples being some of the healthiest in hogwarts because they devote a lot of time in the beginning of a relationship to understanding boundaries and talking about acceptable affection and how to approach kinks and what to/not to do in private and in public, and having calm debates instead of arguing/fighting

- more hotheaded ravenclaws getting into legit fistfights in the middle of the common room because someone insulted a book character/study method and someone else yelled TALK SHIT GET HIT

- drunk ravenclaws playing a spin the bottle type game where they send the chosen person out of the common room and time how long it takes for them to answer the riddle, then afterwards get them more hammered and do it over again until most everyone passes out

- one person starting to hum or sing quietly in the middle of a study day until one by one everyone joins in with either a voice, instrument, or beat

- slytherins being invited for parties and vice versa because ravenclaw and slytherin are really alike

- ravenclaws being influenced by slytherin personalities and becoming more interested in revenge and getting SERIOUSLY creative with it

- ravenclaws being second to slytherins in detentions with filch because they tend to make messes with experiments/get creative with insults/revenge

- ravenclaws resenting the booky nerd hardworking stereotype because some of them are lazy assholes who are particularly good in certain fields but dont give a fuck about anything else, some of them dislike reading but are serious overachievers, etc

_________________________________

Almost a month and a half had passed since Kai had met her in this very house. Her friends still didn’t like him very much but it didn’t matter to him. Not anymore. There was only one thing that mattered to him and that was Y/N. This girl had stolen his breath away right from the start and even now after all these weeks , she kept finding new ways to do that. They became best friends , well … a little more than friends actually. After he teased her with magic things had happened and — they kept happening. Neither of them could keep their hands away from the other for long and that party was the definition of hell for him because she was right there but still too far away.
They arrived together and spent most of the night talking , laughing and drinking. Kai couldn’t tear his eyes away from her no matter what and she appeared to have the same ‘problem’. They were inseparable until about 15 minutes ago when Y/N went to the make up karaoke stage with Caroline. He loved watching her sing at the top of her lungs , hearing her laugh and seeing that spark in her eyes which always made his heart skip a beat.

*     *     *

     "I didn’t invite you to the party so you can sit on the sofa all night drinking bourbon. Dance with me.”
Y/N grabbed Kai’s hand without waiting for an answer , pulling him onto the dance floor.
    “You want me to embarrass myself in front of the whole internet don’t you ? I am pretty sure Damon is lurking somewhere with a camera.” he teased , twirling her around twice until her chest bumped into his. Y/N placed her hands on his chest , slowly moving them towards his neck while they gazed into each other’s eyes.
    “No. I just want to dance with my best friend and the hottest guy in the whole universe. That’s all.”
Liar. he thought , noticing the change in her heart beat.
    “OH so it has nothing to do with you walking like a tornado through all those people when that girl came over to try and flirt with me ? Was someone jealous ?” he teased , pulling her even closer. “Cuz that’s kinda hot.”
    “No. What ? No.” she crinkled her nose. Kai suppressed a smile and slid his hands down to her ass pulling her towards him.
    “You know , if you want me to hold you this close while our bodies press against each other , you don’t have to use excuses. Just ask.” he whispered in her ear , making her cheeks flush a bright shade of pink.
    “Always so cocky.” she teased.
Kai laughed under his breath and a moment later he spun her around again until her back pressed against his chest and their hands intertwined in front of her. Y/N turned her head slightly towards him and their eyes met , both of them swaying to the beat while their bodies pressed together with literally no space between them.
    “For someone who says he will be embarrassed while dancing , you are quite amazing at it.”
    “Oh really ?” he spun her around again.  Their bodies so close they could feel each other’s heart beats and their lips almost touched as he spoke. Y/N hummed. “Let me blow your mind then , but if we end up on the internet. It’s your fault.”
    “I’m cool with that.” she laughed and Kai couldn’t help but laugh too.
It was always like this. Her smile always made him smile , her laugh always made him laugh and feel things he hadn’t felt before in his life. Ever since meeting her something inside him had stirred and kept stirring the longer they spent together. Even more in the following minutes while they danced holding each other close , gazing into the other’s eyes. Neither of them noticed anything else besides the other until both of them completely forgot they weren’t alone and things got quite heated up between them. They danced song after song and the longer they danced like this , the more his pants tightened around him. There was something about the way she moved , how she always found ways to touch him discreetly , that drove him nuts and he wasn’t being shy either. His hands were all over her body and a couple of times they almost kissed and now half an hour later there was only one thing on his mind.
    “Lets go have fun Y/N.” he whispered in her ear.
    “Malachai Parker.” she said smiling innocently at him , hooking her hands around his neck. “Aren’t we already having fun ?”
    “The other kind of fun. Come on Y/N –” he nibbled on her earlobe , innocently slipping his hand under her shirt. His fingertips glazed across her skin and he wished they were alone in that moment. “I am dying to feel your hot naked body against mine, while I make you screa–”
Y/N’s lips crashed against his , shushing him before any of her friends heard what the was saying. A tingly feeling spread through her body and kept spreading waking up every fibre the closer he pulled her towards him.
     "I’ll go get us something to drink. You want something ?“
     ”I want you.“ he whispered not willing to let go off her.
‘Later’ she mouthed , gazing into his eyes and almost had to peel his hands off her to get to the bar. Kai’s eyes followed her through the crowd and he sat in one of the comfy chairs thinking. Or more like trying not to think about how his pants had tightened around him. He closed his eyes and sighed , trying to push away all those thoughts flooding his mind. The way she looked at him while they danced and even before that – it drove him nuts even more than her hips swaying to the beat , ‘accidentally’ rubbing against him. It was just too much. How was he supposed to wait for later ?
    “Here you go.” said Y/N , sitting on the armrest handing him a cup.
    “Thanks.” he took a sip , pressing his lips together while watching her run her fingers through her hair. “Hey Y/N?”
    “Yeah?”
‘Come sit on daddy’s lap.’ he mouthed with a devilish spark his eyes.
A split second later he pulled her onto his lap without waiting for an answer and couldn’t help but notice how her breath got caught in her throat feeling his hard on pressing against her. Neither of her friends seemed to have noticed her reaction , though they still gave them the look , obviously wondering why they had kissed and what they were missing.
    “What is up with you two ?” wondered Damon.
    “Nothing. Hey , you don’t mind me getting some of that fancy bourbon you hide in the third shelf way in the back right ?”
Damon growled and clenched his jaw heading towards the cupboard to see which bottle she had taken. Y/N took a sip from her cup almost drinking all of it at once while Kai’s hand wound around her lower waist innocently touching her down there as he pulled her towards him. A moment later she shifted on his lap sitting a little sideways and put her arm around his shoulder , smiling innocently while playing with the scruff on his neck. Kai closed his eyes trying to shove away those thoughts but they only fought their way back harder. Y/N knew what her actions in that moment did to him and she kept at it , but two can play that game.
    “You two seem to have gotten really close.” said Caroline snuggling a little closer to Stefan.
    “Well yeah , we are best friends.” replied Y/N taking another sip.
    “Yeah , Candice. We are friends.” smirked Kai. “Well , a little more than friends. We’ve been kissing a lot.”
Everyone stared at him with looks of confusion , disbelief and shock on their faces. Y/N turned towards him too shooting him a warning look but just as she was about to say something Kai’s fingertips glazed across her bare skin distracting her , sending shivers all through her body making her heart rate jump off the roof. He could feel her melting under his touch and completely spacing out on what her friends were saying. Y/N’s eyes fluttered closed and his lips smashed against hers , not caring about what anyone would say or do. In that moment it was just them – Kai could only see , feel and taste Y/N and it was the same for her. Their lips moved so fast against each other , their tongues exploring the other’s mouth it (looked and) felt as if they were trying to either swallow each other or completely suck the air out of the others’ lungs. Or both. Kai’s hands found their way under her shirt and Y/N almost swung her leg over his lap , stopping herself in the last second.
    “Great definition of ‘nothing’ , Y/N.” groaned Damon sitting on the sofa next to his brother. “Break it up – my eyes are burning. Don’t make me regret introducing you to each other.”
Kai cleared his throat and moved his hands visibly struggling to keep them away. They gazed longingly into each other’s eyes , the tension between them growing by the second. There were things he wanted to say to her but couldn’t. Her friends’ stares were awkward enough , he didn’t want to push things even more. At least not in a verbal way.
Y/N turned towards her friends jumping in the conversation as if she and Kai hadn’t just almost ripped each other’s clothes in the middle of the room with everyone watching. Damon put his arm around Elena’s shoulder and said something  to her while Caroline stared wide eyed at her and Kai. Stefan asked her something and for a second Y/N’s gaze dropped onto her cup. She trailed her finger around the edges , humming some song when her phone buzzed in her pocket making her jump up in his lap.    
                           
                           God , you are turning me on like crazy.

A sideways smile showed on her face and she glanced at Kai who was looking at her innocently , somehow finding a way to push his hips up at her while taking a sip of his drink. Faster than humanly possible he typed another text , catching a glimpse of her taking a sip from her drink when her phone buzzed on her lap , not once but twice making her jump up a little every time.

                          I want you. Here. Now. In this second.
I want to slip my fingers between your legs and gently rub your clit until you beg for me to make you mine.


Y/N pressed her thighs together trying not to think about what he had just texted her. Only her mind had started drifting and she was paying less and less attention to what her friends were saying. A low growl came from Kai’s throat when he saw her shake her head in a ‘no’ and barely a few seconds later she got another text , each word turning her skin on fire as she read it.

I want to rip out your clothes right here, right now , trace every curve with my fingertips and kiss every square inch of your body before I slide between your legs and make you scream my name and then fuck you until you can’t remember your name.

Y/N gulped and pressed her thighs even closer together trying to push away the thoughts that began flooding her mind making her cheeks flush a bright shade of red. For a few seconds she shifted is lap and he growled in her ear continuing to text her. Her phone buzzed again and again but she refused to answer him. About 5 texts later she stopped reading them too. Her skin already felt like it was on fire from the thoughts that swirled in her mind and feeling the bulge in his pants getting harder wasn’t helping much. Neither were Kai’s fingertips innocently glazing across her hip sending chills all over her body while his breath tickled the skin on her neck.
    “Y/N – ” he brushed his nose against her cheek and whispered in her ear listening to her heart pounding in her chest. “Why aren’t you answering your phone ? Answer your phone.”
Y/N turned towards him and his lips reached for hers but missed with 0.3 seconds when Elena pulled her away needing her help with something. Kai closed his eyes and almost groaned in frustration. Twenty minutes. She had been sitting on his lap for twenty minutes being so close yet so far away. He was starting to lose it and the way she had slightly jumped up every time her phone buzzed had only pushed him further towards the edge. There was no way he’d wait a second longer to make her his again. He wanted her more than he had ever wanted her.
    “Dude , you are so whipped.”
    “No , I’m not.”
    “Sure you are.” said Damon watching Kai’s eyes following Y/N through the crowd. “Whatever it is that’s going through your head — not in my house.
    “Yeah. Sure. Of course. Whatever.”
Kai wasn’t listening at all. His gaze was locked on her and he could swear she was swaying her hips like that on purpose. Then she turned her head to the side , innocently glancing at him while biting her lip and he lost it. Quickly he got up and glazed his hand across her ass while walking right past her , listening to her heart rate increase to dangerous levels. Y/N closed her eyes for a second expecting for him to wrap his hands around her but that never happened. When her eyes opened Kai was nowhere near her and she couldn’t find him in the crowd.  Just as she was about to call him , her phone buzzed with another message from him and –

                                 Can you say ‘no’ now ?

In which Craig’s music is too loud and Tyler is a slut for fruity coolers.

It was two weeks before Craig saw Tyler again.

June had faded into July, bringing with it a sweltering summer heat wave. Customers had begun to frequent the Starbucks so much that Craig had been asked to pick up an extra few Saturday shifts for the month, dealing with new sweet summery drinks, hot late night coffees, and even hotter girls.

Craig had soon come to hate the summertime.

So I recently started playing The Sims 3 on the Xbox 360

And I loved playing it on Mac but now it’s too old so I bought the Sims 3 for the 360…And I LOVE playing the Sims…but sometimes I’m evil..

So, my daughter grew up and I really wanted her to marry into wealth, and the richest people in the Sims 3 are the Landgrabs. As far as I know, there is only one male Landgrab in the game, but he’s married…so my sim breaks up his marriage….then my sim and him get engaged and throw a wedding. My sim invites his ex to the wedding. She’s not happy. She brings their TWO kids and I’m like…oh no. He had two kids. But whatever it’s done…I want my sim to be a gold digger. They get married, and we add the hubby to the household

Hubby turned out to be an elder and my sim literally the day before, became a young adult.

My sim daughter literally became a home wrecking gold digger who married some old dude.

But hey, money! And Achievement! 

hoodie-two-shoes  asked:

Ok you know what? That hc is gold. I'd like to see how everyone gets along when they bring their cat counterpart for a walk tho!

A/N: I mean, unfortunately we won’t be able to see Delilah, Granny Rags, or Daud confront their cat counterparts, because… they’re kinda dead, but enjoy!  Also, to any confused readers: yes, walking cats is a thing, and yes, you can buy a harness to walk your cat with.  Just be aware that there are guidelines for it.

Keep the prompts coming, people!


“I’m sorry, you want me to what?”

The Outsider didn’t look up from his desk, where he was scribbling at a piece of paper.  “Could you take Emily outside for a while?  She’s been restless today.”

Emily opened her mouth, then closed it.  Her eyes traveled to the aforementioned feline, who was licking her paw while sitting on the settee.  The cat paused and met Emily’s glare with one of her own, as though she knew exactly what the Outsider wanted and was telling her, “Don’t you dare.”

“Can’t I take Daud out instead?” Emily asked, folding her arms.  “Also, why do you even take your cats on walks?  Isn’t that more of a dog thing?”

The Outsider, still without looking up, pointed at the remains of a shredded pillow on the floor.  “Daud doesn’t get to go outside today.”

Yuri & Yuri - To all those people who called Yurio a bully! Can we talk about the fact that Yurio....

danced to Yuuri Katsuki. Not to Victor Nikiforov, not to Otabek Altin. BUT TO THE YUURI KATSUKI…..

Yurio is shocked at Yuuri’s possible retirement.

Victor seeks comfort from Yurio.

No matter where Yuuri is, he always, always goes to cheer Yurio on!

The entire performance is a personal skate to Yuuri like Yuuri skates to Victor. It is his appeal to Yuuri to stay. To continue on skating with him.

No matter what you think of your rival, you never go out of your way to meet just so you can ask them to quit. The only thing that was missing from Yuuri’s performances were his jumps!

You could say in a way, Yurio noticed even before Victor did. He wanted to compete against Yuuri, he wasn’t looking down on Yuuri. He wanted him to shine on the ice, which is the same goal as Victor who arrives later on as his coach.

He wanted Yuuri to be fired up. Instead he finds him crying. That pisses Yurio off and that’s why he says what he says. Yurio wanted Yuuri to fight.

Hence the words… Just retire already. Maybe Yurio thought that it would inspire Yuuri. Instead Yuuri disappeared only to appear later on skate Victor’s Free Skate. 

His words are the exact opposite of what he said last year. 

Athletes have strong minds and bodies. It’s adrenaline. Once you get used to winning medals, it’s like a drug. You just have to keep winning, keep improving till no longer can. 

Victor might be the inspiration behind the Quad Flip…But the person behind the Quad Salchow is Yurio. And Yuuri acknowledges it here.

Let’s not forget that Yurio has been with Yuuri every step of his journey the past 9 months. 

Yurio gave Yuuri Katsudon to eat when he was feeling down. Here again he remembers the Katsudon promise. If you didn’t love that person would you remember what they want?

He also says indirectly I won’t let you go, I won’t let you leave. If you have to leave you have to beat me. You have to stay and beat me. It’s an invitation, it’s a challenge, it’s a silent plea. Stay, Yuuri!

Yuuri is torn. He understands finally he can’t go. Not like this! He needs to keep skating. He had just reached his potential, to quit now is a waste. That’s why Victor was very angry. Victor and Yurio, both made Yuuri stay.

If this is the acknowledgement he wanted from Yurio, once he gets it can he leave? Yuuri has received the message loud and clear.

The same Yurio who asked Yuuri to retire last year is asking him to stay. It’s a full circle.

A really proud Otabek. The way he watched Yurio is just amazing. Melt your knees amazing. 

The stress of Yuuri possible retirement, Victor’s return and his own fall in the beginning breaks him. He might have done just enough to win gold. And he did by .12 points reason enough for Yuuri to stay.

Otabek might be the first friend . With exception of parents, grandpa… Yuuri, Victor, Mila, Yuko and all are extended family to Yurio. That is Yurio’s Agape. Victor might have choreographed it! Like Victor said, It’s a feeling and that is what Yurio found through Yuuri!

Hey no one asked but here’s my favorite background study music in the whole world

Ulrich Schnauss, a German electronic artist with very calming, friendly, and inviting beats. Honestly even if you don’t need study music I recommend checking him out. It would probably work well for meditation too, or if you just want to listen to something calming and sweet.

Part of Deaf AU - part 1 


Jinki is in love and that’s bad. That’s really bad because he doesn’t know what to really do about it. Sure, he and Kibum have been talking a lot ever since they arrived in Seoul a month ago and while it is nice to have a friend that understands him when he signs and that doesn’t require he wears his hearing aids, falling in love with Kibum was never the plan.

Falling in love is making him anxious.


Taemin rolls his eyes from where he’s perched on Jinki’s bed, watching videos on Jinki’s tablet. Taemin prefers Jinki’s room for reasons Jinki doesn’t really understand but he usually lets his brother hang out in there as well unless he’s doing something important. And they both know that if Taemin is too noisy, Jinki will simply remove his hearing aids and tune Taemin out.

It works very well for both of them.

Except for now. Because even though Taemin is watching videos on Jinki’s tablet, he’s also painfully aware of Jinki’s feet tapping the floor in a stressful rhythm and it bothers him a lot. 

Jinki has long since removed his hearing aids, however, so Taemin can’t just shout at him to stop fidgeting.

Jinki is observing his phone in his hand, jumping a little in surprise every time it vibrates and indicates a new message from Kibum. Taemin turns the volume up and hopes to drown out Jinki.
