because names are not his area

wylan van eck
  • torturing himself until he cant keep his eyes open, staring at the cluttered pages of a book as the candle burns down and willing the words to make sense. they dont.
  • locking himself in his room after tearfully admitting to his father that he just cant do it, he cant read, the words dont make sense. his father yanked his hair and shouted that he didnt care how long it took, his son was not going to be a simpleton.
  • afraid to get out of bed in the mornings because he doesnt want to face his father’s harsh disappointment. keeping the covers pulled over his head for as long as he can because the world looks nicer through the veil of his gold sheets.
  • throwing himself into every other area of his studies so he can prove that his father is wrong, he is not useless, he can uphold the name van eck.
  • mastering the flute in less than a month, to the scoffs of his father and his father’s new bride.
  • throwing his flute against the wall, dejected and inconsolable, hearing his father mocking him in the next room.
  • washing up one night, tending to the bruise on the side of his face that curiously resembles his father’s hand, and deciding in the back of his mind that he should just go, he will never be enough. his father would not miss him. his father would be relieved.
  • waking up from a nightmare with a scream ready on his lips, panting, throwing off his blankets and whispering to himself that it wasn’t real, he was okay - his father hated him, but he would never do that.
  • not feeling safe anyway.
  • not trusting his father enough to stay in this house any longer.
  • not waiting for the sun to rise before he pulled his bag out from under his bed (the last time he used it was two years ago, his father had taken him on a business trip and berated him the whole way home, then never taken him anywhere again) and started stuffing it full of the least conspicuous clothes he had.
  • unsure of where he was going but knowing that he needed to get out.
  • spending his first night on the streets, unwittingly stalked by a wraith, and the rest of the week on the living room floor of the slat, curled around the only possessions he cared enough to keep.
  • trying to make peace with the fact that he ran away, trying to come to terms with the fact that hes in a gang now.
  • feeling ill at ease, a stranger in his own skin for three months. hes pretty much left to his own devices. hardly anybody says anything to him other than “move, runt.” he learns to wait until everybody is asleep, then to lock himself in the bathroom so nobody will see him at his worst. they wouldnt understand, anyway, and they would all make fun of him for being weak.
  • eventually making a few hesitant friends. he has a good understanding of chemistry, so they teach him the practical uses of that knowledge for living in the barrel and running with the dregs. hands-on experience doesnt require reading, so he learns far quicker than they expected him to.
  • receiving his first letter from his father. he doesnt know why he opens it. he ignores all the ones that follow.
  • being called upon by kaz brekker himself, an infamous legend he had only glimpsed in passing.
  • forced into a major heist with no prior experience. all those weeks of fiddling with sparks and powder and chatting low-scale demolitions with raske crafting him into something with potential. hes not good enough for this job and he knows it, they all know it, he just wishes they would stop harassing him about it and leave him alone. it wasnt his call.
  • suddenly back to having no control over what he does, not even knowing that hed gotten used to quiet independence.
  • seeing this ragtag group of broken bits all fitting together and wondering if he might be looking at it the wrong way. after all, theyve never hit him, called him a disgrace, threatened to send him to the furthest edges of the world just to be done with him.
  • learning that their begrudging trust and dark humor is the language of thieves. he should have known they werent mocking him in earnest, because he would have known if they were. they were treating him like he belonged there just as much as they did.
  • changing his face, his body, knowing that the chances of going back were slim to none, just to learn the uncensored truth. being strong enough to accept that he would not uphold the van eck name the way his father wanted.
  • watching as jesper, unbidden, screams in rage and instinctively draws to avenge wylans supposed death. seeing the tears in jesper’s eyes. he’d noticed the way jesper spoke to him, but he didn’t think any of it was real. it had been a way to make wylan blush, because wylan was too easy - but no. there was more.
  • “You… how many times was it you standing beside me on the deck at night when I thought it was Kuwei?”
    “Every time.”
  • there was more.
  • helping to rescue inej, learning to trust himself, learning to trust other people.
  • letting himself know love. flirting back and watching the way it makes jespers eyebrows shoot up and a grin tug at his lips. curling up next to jesper on the couch and feeling like lazy, gentle fingers tracing on his bare skin would be enough to sustain him for days. relaxing into jespers touch without feeling guilty about being happy.
  • being valued in the dregs, moving past his so-called flaw, accepting his new broken family in replacement of his old broken family.
  • b e i n g   h a p p y   a n d    i n   l o v e
Shutting down racist co-worker.

Did I ever tell you guys the story of how I f*cked with my white coworker out of spite? No? Let’s go:

So I had just gotten promoted and had moved to sit with my new supervisor and team. I was a little nervous because this area was white af. I chose a seat next to the only other black girl on my team. Little did I know, that on the other side of me sat the Mayonnaise Monster. He comes to his seat and introduces himself as ‘Evan’. Asks my name. Mind you, my new desk has my name on it.

He looks at the name and says …….
“What the f*ck does this say”

I brace myself for the f*ckery like;

Prompto turned his photo over to Vyv. Apparently the only reason Vyv didn’t turn Noct over to the Imperials was because he liked Prompto’s photos so much. Great job being a decent human being there, Vyv, would you like a cookie? Oh, wait, we don’t give out awards for basic human decency around here.

Speaking of lacking human decency, the man we mistook for a homeless person back at the Quay is escorting us to the Disc. At best, he’s creepy and suspicious. At worst, he’s going to murder us in our sleep. We’ve no choice but to follow him, though, because we have no way to get close to the meteor without him.

We’ve stopped at a rest area for the night, and Ardyn (if that’s even his real name) paid for the caravan rental. I would’ve rather camped, to be honest, because he keeps watching Prompto and apparently he doesn’t sleep, so I’m not, either. I don’t trust him. None of us do.

Can you spot the three differences between the pictures?

One of the things I have never understood of Age of Ultron is how people put all the blame in Tony for whatever happens, and Wanda is just the poor mislead girl used by Hydra/Ultron. 

In Avengers everyone blames Loki for Clint’s actions, and in Winter soldier we blame Hydra for Bucky’s, but in AoU they blame Tony. And Wanda is at no point held accountable for her actions. Lets not forget that she provokes the Hulk and then points him towards a populated area where people more than likely died, and yet, everyone is “welcome on board, be an Avenger”.

Then there’s the whole discourse on how they hate Tony Stark so much because a bomb with his name on it blew their house, and ok, fair enough, but there was a war going one and Tony Stark didn’t fire the bomb, some asshole did, and if it didn’t say Stark it would have said Hammertech or something else. If it had been a gun shot, you would not go look for Glock, or Winchester or whatever the make of the gun, to seek vengeance, you’d go looking for the guy with the finger on the trigger.

On the whole, I just get annoyed with the treatment of Tony Stark and how the blame for everything tends to be shoved his way. And I have the feeling that with Civil War looming things are not going to improve much for him.

What A Tease

Request: hi, can i request for a flirty teasing!Bucky Barnes x reader? (cocky bucky gives me life and there’s not enough of it) but when reader finally teases/flirts back he gets flustered because he doesn’t expect it? please please please

Technically speaking, you weren’t considered an official member of the Avengers but according to the rest of the team, you were the newest addition to the squad. Fury was hesitant to bring your name on the official Avengers roster because you did very little in the field; your main area of expertise was in the lab and that’s where you met Bucky. Bucky was brought in by Steve who had asked if there was a possibility that a cure existed or could found to help Bucky’s brain fight against the words that were so evilly implanted in his mind.

At first, Steve or Sam had to stay in the lab with you because Bucky was so unsure about everything and everyone that he didn’t trust anyone besides Steve and Sam, but that slowly changed as he got used to you. As time went on, Bucky became more open with you and actually began conversations with you as you looked on his brain scans and tested new ideas out. Sam would always joke about Bucky having a crush on you or how Bucky was jealous of him because he was the only one who could make you laugh hard with his bird jokes. You always brushed Sam’s theories off, there was no one in hell someone like Bucky could like someone like you.

“Hey there pretty lady,” Bucky greeted you as he strutted into the lab. You’ve started to realize that Bucky has become more confident and has remembered more things from before the war, like how he used to be. You weren’t complaining, talkative and confident borderline cocky Bucky turned you on but it was also nice to know that working with Steve in remembering his past was paying off.

“Shut up and sit,” you replied with a smile on your face as you pointed over to his designated lab chair.

“Demanding. I like it,” he smirked as he sat down and faced his chair towards you, “a woman who takes control is a turn on,” he continued as he watched a slight blush creep up onto your cheeks.

“Can we just focus?” You asked slightly annoyed and yet slightly flushed at the fact that Bucky was saying these things. They shouldn’t come as a surprise, everyone and their mama’s knew that Bucky was a giant flirt. He would flirt with anyone, whenever and wherever he was, nothing stopped him. You had promised yourself that you wouldn’t get caught up in his charm because you didn’t want your heart to get broken but Bucky was making it hard for you to keep up with that promise. Every time he so much as opened his mouth, you knew you were a goner.

“Isn’t hard for you to focus when you see your beautiful reflection through my metal arm?” He asked seriously.

“I just did some calculations, and I’ve been able to determine that you’re full of shit, Barnes,” you replied, not taking your eyes away from the computer.

“Ouch! Way to hurt a man’s ego,” Bucky said, placing a hand over his heart, feigning an expression hurt.

“You cannot fathom the immensity of the fucks I don’t give,” you responded, now very annoyed that he was distracting you from getting actual work done.

“I’m just saying, you are very beautiful,” he said, this time sincerely. You never flirted back with him because what’s the point? He’ll just continue and you’ll probably be forever sexually frustrated and it just end well for anyone, but maybe, just maybe, because you don’t ever respond to his advances, you should for once and maybe, it’ll shut him up.

“Keep sweet-talking and this could go a whole new direction,” you said slyly, giving him a wink before focusing your attention back onto the computer screen. Nothing, absolute silence was the response you got from Bucky. Without letting Bucky see, you let the smile on your face grow, feeling accomplished and astonished that you actually managed to say something flirty without messing up. You snuck a peek at him and you saw his mouth slightly open, his eyes wide and in shock of what just happened.

“Don’t give me that face, it’s so cute I might not be able to hold back,” you smirked some more. Bucky had no response because he wasn’t expected anything like this from you. You were usually more reserved and if you did talk back to him, it was in a sarcastic tone, like the one you had earlier. It took him a few minutes to get his gears working again and when he did, a smirk ghosted over his face as he watched you study the computer screen at the scans that you had uploaded.

“Maybe I don’t want you to hold back,” he said calmly. You suddenly stopped reading the sentence you were on and fought back the blush that was slowly making its presence on your face. You had honestly expected Bucky to be in shock for the rest of the time he was scheduled for in the lab, but then again, he was Bucky- the flirt- of course he was going to make a comeback. You turned to face him, looking at him and admiring his shit eating grin that was plastered all over his face and without a second thought you leaned in towards him, placed both hands on each of his cheeks and pulled him in for a kiss. He quickly responded by placing his hands on your waist and pulling you in so you were straddled on his lap, his hands made their way down to your ass where he gave it a squeeze which made you gasp and allowed him entrance into your mouth. Lips quickly reconnected and you were both fighting for dominance, which in the end Bucky won, not that you were complaining. Your hands roamed up his face and tugged on his hair as he pushed your head to the side so he had better access to your neck. You let out a satisfying moan as you slowly rolled your hips on his crotch as well as when he kissed your sweet spot. Bucky’s mouth found its way back to yours as your rolls became faster and suddenly stopping when the lab door opened.

“Hey Buc-” Steve started out but soon stopped himself as he saw the position that you and Bucky were in. His face flushed red and he immediately apologized before turning around and almost sprinting out of the lab.

“Show me what else that pretty little mouth of yours can do,” you teased Bucky as your forehead rested on his while both of you were trying to catch your breath.

“My pleasure,” Bucky said smirking as he stood up, picking you up and carrying you out of the lab and to his room.

So a few days ago I found this amazing fanart from someone by the name on @sweeteggy. This was an amazing work of fanart and I needed to analyze this because you put so much hard work into this. I hope you don’t mind.

Edd and Eddy are dressed in suits and they look older then they are supposed to be in the show.

I believe they’re at a dance and Eddy has just admitted his feelings for Edd. I always believe he’s be the first to initiate their first kiss and he does a good job of doing so. They’re in a private area where they can talk.

As usual, Edd is slow on trying to figure out what Eddy is trying to tell him. Edd does share the same feelings as Eddy, but never thought he liked him in the same way.

Eddy takes hold of Edd’s head and kisses him.

Edd is so taken aback by this that he freaks out for a moment. He swings his hands up going to pull Eddy away. He never pictured this ever happening to him. He has never questioned his sexuality so much like Eddy does throughout the series.

But, then Edd starts to enjoy it. This is what he has dreamed about. He loves Eddy and this feels so right.

He wraps his arms around Eddy. I can see them becoming very physically affectionate with one another when they start going out.

They look so happy.

The kiss ends and they stare at one another.

Eddy looks as if this is something they’d do every day while Edd has no idea what to think. I love this face. They still haven’t let go of one another.

They have gotten to know one another so well throughout the series. They’re practically the same person who was trying to find the same thing. Edd and Eddy need one another, relationship or friendship. They can relate to one another and have helped solve problems. I believe they’ll be lifelong friends.

I seriously need to make up a fanfic for this.

Jerk coworker is rude to an old lady because he wants to leave early.... I make him stay late.

When I was 16 I worked at a bakery/cafe, specifically in the bakery section.  I sold pastries and made the drinks, and other people manned the actual sandwich/soup/salad area.  We all worked very well together, had good managers, and had our lunch rush or closing cleanup routine down.

Then there was him.  I’ll call him AA, because he had a name that started with A and was also an asshole.  And he probably could’ve used AA.  At his interview he put on a very professional front, and seemed to me at first to be a pretty nice guy.  I noticed his asshole-ness slower than others, because I worked in the bakery and he was on line.  But here are a list of his crimes:

~Not wearing gloves ~Not changing gloves when he should have ~Smoking in the cafe ~Snapping at customers (even the nice ones) ~Lying to customers ~Hitting on the 16/17 year old employees (he was about 23), which included me ~Generally saying dickish things

It’s been too long for me to give any actual quotes except for this gem.  "You know that soda’ll kill you" AA tells me as he takes a drag from his cigarette.

And somehow the managers NEVER saw any of his bad behavior.

Now after he worked there about three weeks, he was on a closing shift with me.  It’s looking to be pretty standard.  I close down the bakery, in my lonely isolated bakery bubble, while two people close down the food line and one person cleans the dining room.  

About five minutes before closing, a nice elderly lady comes in wanting to order a salad.  She wants it for here– that’s not a problem.  The only thing we can’t do while she’s in the cafe is mop or vaccuum the dining room, which we don’t do until the last twenty minutes of closing anyway.  And she’s alone, ordering half a salad, and sure to eat quick.  Just as I’m about to finish her order, AA pops up behind my shoulder.

AA: “Oh, ma'am, you can’t order in, we’re closed.”

Me: “We’re not closed yet, it’s fine.”

AA: “We can’t start cleaning until she leaves.”

Me, holding back an eye roll: “Yes we can, we just can’t vaccuum–”

AA proceeds to pressure this little old lady into taking her order to go, when she would clearly like her salad now.  I awkwardly apologize as we finish the order, and I give her a free pastry since we’re closing anyway.  (They get donated, not thrown away, btw)

When the nice old lady leaves, I fix AA with a death stare.  He shrugs and asks “What?  Don’t you wanna go home early?”  I was seriously mad.  I remembered his hitting on me, his lying to a customer (which is a story for another day), and his general dickishness.  I say simply “You’re an asshole” and turn to my closing duties.  AA does the general douchey “Oooooooooh” but doesn’t press further.

The hour passes.  The cafe is clean.  I look over at the other line worker doing her last cleaning of the appliances.  I look at the wetspots from the mop on the floor, drying.  I wish that I could somehow make AA stay longer.  And then it hits me.  The new manager is on tonight.

Oh, that new manager.  That new manager who does everything by the book and doesn’t care about staying late.  That new manager who does the closing thing that no other manager does– make us scrub the floor before we mop it.  It takes 15 minutes, not counting the sweeping and mopping.

I look at the other line worker, whose duties don’t include the floor.  She can go home.  The dining room worker is done.  I’m done.   The manager has been in the office counting the day’s profits.  He doesn’t know if we’ve mopped.  

I grab a slice of bread from the donation bag.  I step over to the now-dry floor of line.  I crumple the bread and let it fall.  I step on it a few times to make it look like it’s been there a while.  I grab a slice of lettuce.  I grab a bit of onion.  I grab a crouton and crush it.  All while keeping the counters and appliances absolutely pristine.

I step back to my bakery and start putting out the clean trays and labels for the morning shifters.  Then I hear the manager’s voice.   “(other line worker), you’re good.  (Dining room worker), you’re good.   AA– Did you do the floors?”

AA: “Yeah, of course.”

Manager: “Why don’t you take a closer look.”

I can’t look, I’ll give myself away.  I hear AA spluttering.  Manager: “Clean the floors, then you can go.”

AA is still spluttering.  "I– can I just sweep?“

Manager: "Seriously?  No.  Sweep, scrub, mop.  Then you can go home.”

My heart is pounding as I hear the manager approach me.  I’ve just finish putting the labels in the correct places.  "Delanium, looks good.  You can go home.“

16 year old me couldn’t believe I’d gotten away with it.  I smiled at the manager, clocked out, and asked about last night’s episode of a show.  We chatted for a few minutes and I watched out the corner of my eye as AA scrubbed the floors, looking utterly defeated.  I left before he was finished.

Tl;dr: My coworker was a first class douche, and when he pressured an old lady into ordering out so he could leave early, I sabotaged his closing so he could stay late.

Edit: I’ve been on Reddit about four days, and this seriously makes me feel good.  I made my own front page, lol.  And for anyone who is curious, AA was ultimately fired for sexual harassment and banned from all chains of the cafe, or from any restaraunts affiliated with the parent company.

Edit: Given a few comments, I feel the need to say that the old lady ordering 5 minutes before closing was not an inconvenience.  She wanted half a sald– that takes 90 seconds to make and 5-20 minutes to eat.   She would not have inconvenienced us unless she sat there for 45 minutes eating her salad.  AA was out of line.  Even if you STILL think the old lady was rude, remember that AA had it coming long before this.

I absolutely love the headcanon that Cassian is Poe’s role model you guys don’t understand I LOVE IT 

Just really small pilot-in-training Poe Dameron learning about the mission in his history class 

He immediately wants to learn everything about this guy how did he fly what were his signature moves what did he wear 

When he gets BB-8 after awhile he realizes he has a droid companion just like Cassian did and fangirls just a smidge

He’d mess with his hair for hours when he was younger, just to get to look like Cassian’s

He names his first X-Wing Andor and a handful of the pilots immediately catch on

When Finn gets his own X-wing(he’s going to be a resistance pilot c’mon guys) Poe suggests Bodi as the name 

Finn doesn’t understand why, but likes the name anyways and Poe has a silent win 

Poe learning all of Cassian’s moves, practicing squeezing through tight areas over and over 

Poe Dameron wanting to be everything like Cassian Andor because that man is his hero 

Whispered Apologies

Lucas groaned, the nervous feeling in the pit of his stomach was overwhelming.

 It was the summer before they were set to start high school. Him and Maya had decided to just continue to hang out as friends, even though they had both already admitted to having feelings towards one another. They didn’t want to hurt Riley, so they pushed their feelings to the side.

Maya and Lucas’ friendship grew strong, and consisted of lots of subtle touches. Maya would find herself reaching to grab Lucas’ hand whenever they were in a crowded area. Lucas’ hand would gravitate to Maya’s legs whenever they were sitting beside each other, and he would draw small circles with his fingers the entire time. They both knew what they did, and neither of them attempted to stop it. The truth is that it filled their stomachs with butterflies, and made their throats dry up.

Now they were at a movie, one that Lucas couldn’t remember the name of because the blonde beauty sitting beside him had all his attention.  He couldn’t take his eyes off of her. Whenever she laughed at whatever was on the screen he could feel his eyes light up, just wanting to have her laugh that way forever.  Lucas reached over and grabbed her hand, intertwining their fingers. Maya looked at him and smiled, giving his hand a quick squeeze.

“You’re not watching the movie, Hopalong” said Maya, with a small smile tugging at her lips.

“And you’re not paying enough attention to it if you can tell that I’m not watching the movie,” Lucas laughed.

Maya laughed. It was hard not allowing herself to feel things whenever she was around Lucas. It was easy to feel vulnerable near him, like right now as he was staring at her and all she wanted to do was lean over and kiss him.

It took Lucas every bone in his body to hold him back from kissing Maya. It wasn’t the first time he’s wanted to, but every time he got the courage to do it he would remember how set Maya was on protecting Riley’s feelings. He had to respect her wishes, even if it did seem to physically hurt him.

Maya had turned her head and was watching the movie again, but she still felt like he was watching her. The movie was about to hit it’s climax, where the boy finally sucked up his pride and admitted his feelings towards the girl. She looked at Lucas again, “Is there something on my face? Cause you could just tell me about and then watch the movie. The guy is about to apologize for kissing the girl.”

Lucas’ posture stiffened, he decided right there and then to live by example. The hand that wasn’t holding onto Maya’s reached up to brush the blonde strands of hair away from face. He observed her face, looking to see if any part of it was about to push away from him – but all he saw was the same wanting feeling that was eating him up inside.  With his hands pulling her face toward his, Lucas lowered his lips to Maya’s, and gave her the faintest whisper of a kiss. The tentativeness of it made Maya feel beautiful, and without an exchange of words she could understand how happy he was to have this moment. Happy and afraid at the same time, but more than that – Maya could sense that he loved her.

When they pulled apart Maya stared at Lucas’ face. He smiled, and caressed her face with his fingers, “Sorry.”

Rust: The Dungeoniest Dungeon

The adventures of the Nice Ladies and Dag the Asshat continued as they made their way to Gisela’s family lands. On the way, they encountered her younger brother. Apparently he’d been out and about in the area because he’d heard about some group who apparently was doing bad things to androids. After some discussion, we of course decided to check in out. Found the group, but they were beset upon by a bugbear that had both a mechanical bug in it and swarms of beetles. Nasty stuff.

Well, the mechanical bug was a sort of speaker where a guy with a distinct name that I can’t remember told us to come to his home and confront him for ourselves.

His home was nightmarish - the dude has it out for androids. Lots of mechanical bugs and traps and swarms and gross experiments. Just overall nasty business. Dag took to destroying the speakers in each room so he couldn’t taunt us. In the final room, he committed suicide when we wouldn’t bargain with him.

It was fun to fight some old school monsters, like mimics and rust monsters and lots of swarms!

An Unexpected Return

It had been a long, long day for the Duplicarious. It had been so many weeks, maybe even a month and a half, after the sudden death of Project: Rekindling’s supervisor. Apparently, Doctor Xerkzi wasn’t pleased with his assistant, though there were many others to take his place. He thought it odd that none of them filled in to command the notes, though it was likely that the scientist perished as a result of the project. In the end, it didn’t matter, because for some reason the face of that particular man escaped him, even his name.

Pillaging from the Glade of Dreams!

@muse-carnival

“Hey Devilotte!” Scourge bellowed, stepping out of a Warp Ring that had just appeared right next to the fiendish princess. “Didn’t I tell ya before that I’d hold up my end of the bargain? Well I don’t disappoint kiddo. I got a large chunk of land with your name on it.”Figuratively speaking of course. 

The reason Scourge visited so abruptly was because he needed some cash to further fund his goal of becoming a universal dictator. He had recently conquered a large part of a world called The Glade of Dreams, mainly the forested area referred to as the Jibberish Jungle. The area was chockfull of resources that was just begging to be uprooted and sold, but he and his gang didn’t have any equipment on hand to properly pillage the land! So he needed some help from his ‘ally.’

Random Shit about Sherlock Filming Locations in Cardiff

THE GAY PILOT

- 28 the Parade - what we affectionately called the Sad Gay Batman roof

- Mount Stuart Square – plot twist the boys had their “walking into the twilight together” moment at Mount Stuart Square.  The tree in the background has blossomed, much like their love.

SEASON ONE

- National Museum Cardiff – you literally walk in and are instantly assaulted by emotions because the staircases are the first things you see.  Also the gift shops are filled with lots of bees.

- Ba Orient – it’s located in a pretty prominent area in Mermaid Quay, so every time we walked past it, we made snide comments about asshole Sebastian trying to having his dinner and Sherlock and his boyfriend John busting in and being all yo son your co-worker DED.  Also it is definitely not actually a sushi restaurant named Ba Orient.

- Roland Kerr College/Cardiff School of Chemistry – this is just really fucked up because it looks almost nothing like what you see in the show.  The two separate buildings?  Those don’t exist.  That shit is all one giant circular building, my friend.  Visual effects are crazy.

SEASON TWO

- Heddlu De Cymru – aka Roath Police Station. Obviously we couldn’t go inside where they filmed to see the exact location, but we were outside it and it didn’t really look at all like a police station.  The outside of the building is actually rather creepy.  Also right as we were about to get here, we walked past a London taxi cab (which looks completely different from a Cardiff taxi cab) and it was suspicious as hell.

- Tredegar House – we actually made a day trip out here at the end of the week that they used it for base and it’s super precious.  The last owner was a hilarious gay man who reminded us of Mark and there is a dalek in the stables since they’ve used it for Doctor Who.

- Cardiff City Hall – we couldn’t go in because there was a wedding happening at the time.  We mentioned that we should have brought cufflinks for the occasion.

- School of Optometry and Vision Sciences – there was nothing to see there but we kept trying.

MANY HAPPY RETURNS

- Corner of Bute St and James St – first of all, Bute Street takes up half of Cardiff.  Seriously, it is the longest street in the whole damn city and ends with, surprise surprise, Bute Park.  Secondly, there is a salon in the corner as Lestrade is walking called the Guy Christian Salon.  There are a lot of these in Cardiff and this is the first one I saw.  The first time I saw it, we were on a bus and I had just gotten there, unexpectedly arriving after an awful four hour bus ride next to an asshole and I was exhausted, irritable, and not fully with it.  I saw Guy Christian and was 100% sure it said Gay Christian.  From that day forward, all Guy Christian Salons were Gay Christian Salons.  Also, this exact spot on the corner is about a street away from Mount Stuart and if you cross the street and keep walking about 400 odd feet, boom you’re at the drug den entrance.

- National Assembly – it’s open to the public and is designed to be a meeting place (hahaha good one, to quote hotsmug) and there are exhibitions and a café.  It’s actually really aesthetically pleasing from the outside, no lie, and it looks right out over the water in Mermaid Quay.

- The Packet Hotel Public House – it may look cute, but they don’t serve food.  Luckily it’s right down by Mermaid Quay and there are 8000 restaurants down there but SERIOUSLY WHAT KIND OF PUB DOESN’T HAVE FOOD.

SEASON THREE

- 111-112 Bute St – okay so the cool thing about the drug den is that is actually looks like it could really be a drug den.  Like you walk up to it and it does for the most part look like that and we’re pretty sure it’s just empty buildings next to it and it’s creepy as hell.  It doesn’t go in nearly as far as it looks and it’s in a really nice area so it’s kind of random but cool whatever you do you drug den. Also on one of the days we were in Cardiff Doctor Who was randomly filming there too because why the hell not.

- Cardiff University Main Building – aka the hallway of EMOTIONS.  Fittingly this is the science building so you’re literally surrounded by science classrooms as you’re being assaulted on all sides by angst and sorrow.  As you walk up and down, gently caressing the walls and trying to hold in your tears, try and keep your weeping to a minimum because this is actually a school and there are people trying to, you know, study, but this also means that you’re not likely to get kicked out, which is cool.  They filmed on both corridors, but the one on the left as you walk in the more familiar of the two.

- 10 Wordsworth Avenue – John and Mary’s flat is hella adorable, no lie.  It’s literally in the middle of nowhere though so they’d both be bored out of their fucking skulls in a minute.  It was also really weird just standing on the street staring at someone’s house, which is why we didn’t take pictures of it.

- Kapu – sadly not actually a gay bar, but apparently it is tropical themed.  There is a gay bar right down the road named, fittingly enough, Mary’s.

- Kitty Flynn’s – it’s super precious and sells specialty beers and nibbles.  We basically sat down, had emotions, and left.  It’s about two doors down from Kapu.

- Cardiff Crown Court – appropriately enough, the law courts are actually located here.  If they actually put a coffee kiosk here, it would probably do some bomb ass business between the students and the police force, actually.  Right across the street there’s a nice little park (Cathays Park) where we decided John and Sherlock should get married because it is super adorable and has a precious little gazebo.

SEASON FOUR

- Charles Street – the Christmas lights are definitely up all the time (they were up while we were visiting in early August and there was no filming happening at all).  Also this is the gay district in Cardiff which is seriously excellent.  Hotsmug and I visited a gay bar on drag night on the next street over one of our nights visiting.

- New Theatre – we walked past it.  A lot.  There really doesn’t seem to be anything all that fantastically special about it, honestly.

- Cardiff University Students’ Union – this place is the most hospital looking place to ever hospital.  Seriously who the fuck designed this place, what the ever living hell is wrong with them.  That shit is eerie.  Also we rushed through it because we were pretty sure we were going to get kicked out. I mean, it was also really cool looking…in a hospital kind of way.  It just really creeped me out okay despite the fact that it had a Starbucks.

- Mint and Mustard – actually looks like a really cute place.  We got off the bus for a day at the beach and it was just right there. We may have no idea what happened there, but the place looks adorable and the food is actually pretty high class (nice one John).

- Portland House – right across the street from the drug den and on the opposite side of it is Mount Stuart Square.  It’s not as nice and fancy looking outside as the pictures make it out to be.  It actually looks rather shit when you’re walking past it.

- St David’s Hotel – it’s the first five star hotel in Cardiff (thanks, boat tour) and it’s basically jutting out into the water.  There’s…really not much else to say because we’re frankly too poor to be able to tell you more.

- Mount Stuart Square – the pic that Arwel took of the clock to troll us while they were filming at Mount Stuart is actually part of construction that seems to be there all the time – hotsmug took pretty much the exact same pic.  Also, that vid of Ben pretending to shoot the seagulls?  He did that because they are always around. Making noise.  Being a nuisance.  Because seagulls are rats with wings.  They are evil assholes.  I hate seagulls and they are particularly awful in the Mount Stuart area.  And appropriately enough, there is a very nice wine bar and book shop across from the church at Mount Stuart where we found the book Swimming with Sharks.  SYMBOLISM.

- Cardiff Bay Barrage – it’s actually in Penarth and there’s a random ass restaurant thing right after you get off the bridge.  The whole thing is pretty cool, like a manmade canal type deal that opens the bay to the greater part of the ocean, but apparently there was some controversy over it when it was initially built.  Regardless it took us about a half an hour to walk there because there are no direct bus routes from the Quay there and there was a food festival happening so our bus stopped earlier than it should have so that was an extra fun adventure.  


Well, hopefully you enjoyed this little journey into the Sherlock filming places around Cardiff.  All of the kudos to @hotsmugstache for a good portion of these pics and her and the flatmate for helping me create this post! Obviously this isn’t all of the locations, but it was the ones we had the chance to visit and explore.  Enjoy!

AU where Sirius is a struggling photographer who moves to the city with his best friend and artist painter dude, James and on one of his walks around the city with his camera (nerd) he finds this coffee shop/bookstore and inside a willowy redhead beams at him and her name tag says Lily and she takes his order (chai latte because nerd) and he asks if he can take pictures inside the store and she’s like fuck yeah mate and he wanders into the book store which meanders around the coffee shop area like a maze and he finds his guy who has managed to fold his long, gangly frame between two book cases with a giant novel on his lap and a laptop open on a stack next to him with a to go cup of coffee in his hand (long fingers, big hands.) and Sirius can’t help but capture the moment with his camera and the shutter gives him away and Remus looks up (clear hazel eyes, wide in surprise) and Sirius just smiles guiltily before Remus tilts his head and asks, “Do I get to see it?”

Lucky Bunny

Bunny’s person contacted the hospital in August.  His person wrote:

Hi I was just wondering if you could give me an estimate on how much it would cost to repair my husband’s childhood stuffed bunny (named Bunny lol). He put it on a burner when he was really young, so Bunny now has a patch on his stomach that is coming undone. We also keep socks on him at all times because his feet are pretty damaged. I did some basic stitching on him a few years ago to fix small holes, but he now has a hole in his neck and a few other areas where the fur is completely gone. I bought some fabric to attempt to do it myself, I’m just unsure of where to even begin. So I’d love an estimate!Thanks,

Well, it turned out Bunny actually had quite a few injuries.  Those old transplants for burns were wearing through, and he had a lot of bald spots from hug wear.  Here he is on arrival at the hospital:

The goal was to make all his transplants the same fur.  We had a bunch of trouble picking a fur to use.  Finally, his person decided she liked a slightly lighter orange for the damaged brown(we couldn’t find a perfect match) and a cream for his paws, and white for his tail…and I started his surgery.

But the orange just didn’t look quite right… and this is where Bunny got the nickname lucky!  I had ordered a wide range of furs from a supplier the month before.  They were supposed to be thicker than Bunny’s fur, and honestly, I didn’t think they were the same color, either, but then they arrived and the fur was SO close!  It was shorter than expected, so blended well with Bunny’s length, and the color was a bit darker than him, but of a shade that should fade to blend well.  I sent some photos to his person where I transplanted a little of the brown but left the orange for comparison, and she agreed.  The orange would be replaced with the new fur!

Here’s that sample photo…

And here’s Bunny all better and ready to fly home!

Much sturdier and ready for lots of hugs!  His person wrote this when he got home:

We just got Bunny back. He looks so good!! You did such an amazing job. My husband starting tearing up when he saw Bunny. Thank you so much!!!!!

Love it!! Excellent, 100% approved. (Though I did enjoy the DM idea, to be honest..)

The original Anon sent me a follow-up ask about these four (hi, thank you!! <3) so I’ll probably write more about them soon??

Until then, I’m copying in @pomrania‘s replies to the post because they’re fantastic:
“Holy cow this sounds precious and I want twenty. As to the name, uh.. Aranoctigniluna? (That sounds like something a DM would throw at the group if they’re going for a TPK,) I guess four people is generally too much to smush all the names together. What about “ladies and gentlemen”? Or “full court”? I have no idea, sorry. And to fix the “problem areas” of canon: Leviathan only ends up destroying Altissia’s ugliest buildings, Ardyn knocks the wind out of Luna but ends up getting kicked repeatedly in the nuts by Aranea, Ignis’ left eye is damaged enough that he’d need glasses for that side but he can still see (even though bandages were around both eyes for a bit to let everything heal properly)…. (Wow, never ran into the character limit here before.) And later on, Noctis is in the crystal for ten days instead of years, but he has the equivalent of a telephone line out into the rest of the world so they can still communicate.”

Thank you
