being the youngest child

Over the past few months, I’ve been thinking a lot about something that happened to me in high school.

I was raised pagan, I’m still pagan, and I live in a small town. In preschool and early grade school you can really believe the “being different makes you special” line they try and feed us, so I was absolutely not quiet at all about being the youngest child in the only pagan family in town.

The teachers were okay with it, my second-grade teacher was perfectly happy to write “Happy Solstice” on top of my card when we were making holiday cards in school, and only one substitute ever got mad at me for catching me saying “one nation, under gods” in the Pledge of Allegiance. 

The kids, however, were complete shits. As one would expect. I got a wide range of verbal abuse over my religion. I got it all: goat killer, goat fucker, incest, ‘did you cast a spell on me’, ‘teacher teacher Kathryne cursed me and I can’t stop yelling during class’ (which was absurd, if I could put a spell on them I’d make them quieter not louder), ‘we’re going to come to your house tonight and burn you at the stake’, ‘don’t suffer a witch to live’, ‘piginism isn’t a real religion’, ‘you said you’re a pigin, you’re a pig oink oink’, the works. And staying with the same basic group of kids from kindergarten to senior year of high school, there was never a point I could go back in the broom closet even if I wanted to.

So flash forward to junior year of high school, this bullshit is still going strong, and another family transfers to the school. These two nerdy ginger twins, raised fundamentalist Christian but surprisingly cool with hanging out in the same group as me. Until this point, I was seriously afraid of fundamentalist Christians because as a child one screamed “REPENT!” at me and one tried to exorcise me. Both adults, by the way. Not how you ought to treat children. Not the point. 

The point is, the exact same kids who were telling me I was going to hell in one breath started bullying the twins, calling them idiots and Jesus freaks. I, being the oldest and most spoiling-for-a-fight member of the group start defending them. (“Back off! They’re minding their own business, maybe you should try it sometime.”)

To which the kid who was yelling at them at the moment looks at me in utter confusion. 

“We weren’t talking to you, we were talking to the Doublemint twins. They aren’t even the same religion as you. Why would defend them?“

“Because they have the right to choose their own religion as much as you or I do. Because you’re saying the exact same things to them as you say to me. Because you’re an asshole.“ or words to that effect, this was about thirteen years ago, I don’t remember the exact wording. And I doubt the bully does either because this explanation didn’t seem to clear anything up. They very much seemed to think that I should have been happy I wasn’t the focus of their bile at the moment.

Over the past year or so, I’ve been thinking about this conversation a lot. And it’s not just applicable to religion. These are the same people saying “I want to see ace tumblr and bi tumblr fight”. These are the same people who are horribly racist to huge swaths of the population. I’m not saying, “uwu let’s all hug and love each other”.

I’m just saying that the people trying to make the lives of any group of people harder don’t expect any opposition from anyone they’re not actively attacking at that moment. You can just as easily and far more succinctly say “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” or “and then they came for me, and there was no one left to object”, but personally I’m always going to remember the utter confusion as he asked, “Why would you defend them?”

GUYS GUYS GUYSS!! NEW ARTICLE!!!!!!!!!!

Life is like a hurricane here in… modern-day America. But in Duckburg, it’s a veritable storm of fun, adventure, and d-d-d-danger for fans awaiting Disney XD’s summer revival of DuckTales, the beloved ‘80s cartoon about Donald Duck’s nephews and their wild excursions with great-uncle Scrooge McDuck (voiced by Doctor Who’s David Tennant).Premiering in August, the series has been carefully crafted as a familiar reboot albeit with contemporary comedy updates to the Disney Afternoon original. “One of the things we always loved about the old show was that it was this family of adventurers, but the emphasis in every episode had always been on the adventure and plotline,” says co-producer Francisco Angones. “The basic conceit of growing our show was that this is a big blended family of adventurers, so it should feel like a combination of Indiana Jones and a blended Arrested Development-style family sitcom where every character has a different relationship to one another.”The revival sticks to its adventure-of-the-week DNA, but with a hint of season-long serialization — one big mystery of the first season involves a decade-old family secret about why Scrooge and Donald stopped spelunking together — as well as sharpened characterization for nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie (Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz, and Bobby Moynihan). “Since everyone always says ‘Huey, Dewey, and Louie’ in that exact order, we decided to make that the birth order, and by defining that, we were able to assign traits that fit,” says executive producer Matt Youngberg. “So, Huey’s the oldest, a little more responsible, a little bit brainy. Dewey wants to stand out, and wants to break out of being labeled as just one of a set of three. And Louie is happy being the youngest child — he can slip under the radar.”Joining the pack (though decidedly not the Quack Pack), expect significantly more screen time for little Webby (Kate Micucci), Scrooge’s niece-by-affection, whom Youngberg says has “a stronger and more unique voice than she ever had before.” Angones adds, “We almost never say ‘the nephews’ or ‘the boys’ — she’s a crucial part of the adventuring team, and they really are this big, weird family. If Huey has Scrooge’s brains, Dewey has Scrooge’s guts, and Louie has Scrooge’s love of treasure, Webby has Scrooge’s heart.”The population of Duckburg doesn’t stop there. Not even close. In addition to previously announced treats like Beck Bennett’s Launchpad McQuack and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Gizmoduck, the city is thriving with new and familiar characters — so let’s cannonball into some exclusives.

Donald Duck (Tony Anselmo)
Expect to see a lot more of this world-class walking temper tantrum in the new reboot, which bumps Donald Duck up to main cast status. “He’s been a single parent obsessively taking care of the boys, and he’s a little bit overprotective and doesn’t want to take a lot of risks, whereas so much of Scrooge’s success is based on the fact that he’s willing to take risks,” says Angones. “In our world, about 10 years ago, Scrooge and Donald used to go on these big, crazy, rip-roaring adventures, and then they stopped talking to each other, to the point where when we start our show, Huey, Dewey, and Louie don’t even know that the richest duck in the world and this legendary explorer is their great uncle.” By the end of the first episode, Donald reluctantly moves his whole family in with Scrooge, but maintains some degree of his own independence — by keeping his houseboat in the pool. 

Gladstone Gander (Paul F. Tompkins)
Few things can unite Scrooge and Donald like a shared nemesis, and we find that in Gladstone Gander, a dandy old character who always irked Donald and now gets under Scrooge’s feathers, too. Angones says, “The great thing about Gladstone is that since Donald is fundamentally unlucky, Gladstone is supernaturally lucky, and so Scrooge and Donald can both agree that they hate Gladstone because he does nothing and gets everything.” (Also worth hating: Gladstone’s father’s name is Goosetave. GOOSETAVE.)

Gyro Gearloose (Jim Rash)
You’ll notice Scrooge’s in-house mad scientist has gotten a fairly hipster makeover, but neither his wild inventions nor vocal exclamations (by Community’s Jim Rash) are any less manic. While his intern Fenton (Lin-Manuel Miranda) moonlights as local superhero Gizmoduck, presumable fan-favorite Gyro Gearloose keeps the spirit of DuckTales’ crazy super-science alive.

Goldie O’Gilt (Allison Janney)
Returning as Scrooge’s longtime paramour is Goldie O’Gilt, a fellow adventurer who has a curious relationship with old McDuck. “In our adaptation, Scrooge is more of an adventure junkie than a gold addict, so we kept saying, ‘Well, if Scrooge is like Batman, then Goldie should be like Catwoman,’” says Angones. “She’s equally adventurous, every bit Scrooge’s equal, and he hates and loves that. They have this amazingly contentious relationship that’s been going on ages and ages, spanning back to the Gold Rush days.” Plus, the producers say it was David Tennant who geeked out the most about Janney joining the cast: “He heard us play a line she had recorded and he said, ‘That’s C.J. Cregg!‘”Ma Beagle (Margo Martindale) and the Beagle Boys (Eric Bauza)
The perennially annoying villains are back in full force to block Scrooge’s adventures, with beloved character actress Margo Martindale on hand to voice the maniacal matriarch of the family of genuinely idiotic criminals. Big fans will note that they actually look like dogs this time. Relatively

Flintheart Glomgold (Keith Ferguson)
One of Scrooge’s wealthy equals in Duckburg is Scottish showman Flintheart Glomgold, whom Youngberg describes as “this kind of go-go ‘80s billionaire who made all his money from branding and getting his face on every storefront.” Angones says, “Glomgold is bigger, faster, and cheaper. An in-joke we had for him was that originally in the comics, he was South African, and then they made him Scottish in [the original] DuckTales, so we really leaned into that and decided that when Glomgold saw that Scrooge was a Scottish billionaire, he decided to be the cheap knock-off. More Scottish and even richer.

”Mark Beaks (Josh Brener)
The Silicon Valley actor adds fresh blood to the echelon of wealthy ducks that dominate the city. “We had a bunch of old money billionaires — Scrooge is the oldest money, this billionaire of the industrial revolution, and we have Glomgold — so we included somebody who’s representative of today’s billionaires, which is the tech industry billionaire,” says Youngberg. “Mark Beaks doesn’t care as much about money as he cares about status and being buzzworthy and how many followers he has.” Angones adds, “Josh Brener was so incredibly on all the time, selling and pitching. He’s a character who’s so broad and over the top, you love to be annoyed by him.

DuckTales premieres on Disney XD this August.

5 Reasons why it's canon that the Inner Circle members are Feyre and Rhys’ kids:

#1 AWKWARD TENSION AKA When Mommy and Daddy Fight

Rhys said smoothly, “I’m not entirely sure Velaris is prepared for Nesta Archeron.” “My sister’s not some feral animal,” I snapped. Rhys recoiled a bit, the others suddenly finding the carpet, the divan, the books incredibly fascinating.

#2 Mommy Feyre not bothering to hide who’s her favorite son

“Honestly,” I said to Lucien, who wordlessly stacked a pile of buttery green beans onto his plate but didn’t touch it, perhaps marveling at the simple fare, so at odds with the overwrought dishes of Spring, “Azriel is the only polite one.” A few cries of outrage from Mor and Cassian, but a ghost of a smile danced on the shadowsinger’s mouth as he dipped his head and hauled a platter of roast beets sprinkled with goat cheese toward himself. “Don’t even try to pretend that it’s not true.”

#3 Cassian struggling with the burden of being the youngest child and therefore mostly ignored…

“Do you know,” Cassian drawled to her, “that the last time I got into a brawl in this house, I was kicked out for a month?” Nesta’s burning gaze slid to him, still outraged—but hinted with incredulity. He just went on, “It was Amren’s fault, of course, but no one believed me. And no one dared banish her.” She blinked slowly.

#4 Daddy Rhysand getting worried over his son an wife

“Shout down the bond when you’re out again,” Rhys said with a mildness that didn’t reach his gaze. Cassian looked back over a shoulder. “Get back to Velaris, you mother hen. We’ll be fine.”

#5 Kids unable to stand their ‘gross’ parents

I smiled, and he leaned in smoothly to brush a kiss to my cheek. Mor muttered a plea for mercy from mates.

Cassian stalked through the front door a heartbeat later and groaned that it was too early to stomach the sight of us kissing. My mate only snarled at him before he took us both by the hand and winnowed us to the Prison.

As a Five, he knows his options are limited, but when he finds an invitation to Crown Prince Victor Nikiforov’s Selection, he is convinced by a friend to apply. He never thought he’d be Selected. When he is, he finds that his world is changed forever, and that the Crown Prince is not exactly what he’d expected. SO good!!

“Be My Sex Coach, Victor!” by lucycamui, Explicit, 14k (WIP)
Yuuri Katsuki has always been his own worst critic, and a series of unfortunate short-lived relationships has him convinced that he flubs things more in the bedroom than out on the ice. So, of course it would turn out that the ridiculously charming Russian he’s matched with online is a pornstar.But perhaps, a ‘professional opinion’ is exactly what Yuuri needs… PLEASE READ THIS IT’S SO FUNNY AND OMGBKSHDG

Pigeon Alley by DiAnna44, Teen, 21k (WIP)

Frozenheart & Hiddenfire by Thehobbem, Gen, 21k (WIP)
Being the youngest child in a family means you get to leave home and find Riches and Adventures your older siblings could only dream of - but Yuuri Katsuki wants nothing more than stay home and hide from Destiny. Which will be much harder to do once a certain ice wizard comes into town. This author wrote this for my birthday and the update was SO good!!

like your french girls by ebenroot, Teen, 102k
in which Victor is an artist, Yuuri is his figure skating muse, and Yuri is so done hearing about their stupid love story through Instagram. Listen… this is an AMAZING fic and I had to reread it on my long-ass flight! If you haven’t read this yet, you GOTTA

Here’s to another week of great fic reading! Be sure to give the authors some love!

saetr3noora  asked:

hello! meron ka bang complete/accurate list of all the deities from the tagalog and bisayan pantheon? Also, i'm sorry if this question has been asked before ngayon ko lang nahanap blog mo and i'm only now really getting into ph mythology :)

Hi @saetr3noora​. I made one before though I don’t remember which blog I posted it in, this one, or my blog on reviving our old beliefs, practices, and on our general mythologies and folklore at @diwatahan​. Also its an old list that needed to be updated and corrected so I guess it gives me an opportunity to make another one. :)

But here is my complete list on them based on historical research, not modern takes on it. This list is from my notes for my book I am still currently writing and researching for. Any modern deities from recent stories such as Lidaga, Lihangin, Lisuga, etc. are not included on this list as there is not one mention of them in any of the oldest dictionaries or in any historical record accept in the 1900′s particularly during the U.S. colonial period and after and thus based on historical research, they weren’t traditionally worshiped. However this doesn’t mean they aren’t deities as some may just be but never mentioned in historical texts and only known orally, but for the purpose of listing all the deities that were believed and worshiped prior to the Spaniards I have excluded them from the list. I try to put info on each deity as much as possible based on what was written on them but there are a few who are only briefly mentioned in passing either with just the name of the deity alone or the name and the attribute they were known for.

Also note there are other Bisayan deities not listed here that are known to the Sulod of Panay island with the exception of Laon Sina/Alunsina as she was a prominent goddess known throughout the Bisayas. The deities known by the Sulod may possibly be deities that were known by the other ethnic groups in the West Bisayas and elsewhere in the region under different names locally but I have not looked into that intensively and done enough research on that subject so I have left those deities out of this list.

This is a pretty long list so I have cut it off here for those who don’t want to scroll so much on their dash. To read the entire list just press keep reading. 

Anyway I hope this helps all those who are interested in our mythologies and folklore, whether from mere curiosity, for the sake of creating art, or to actually join the movement of reviving our precolonial beliefs and practices to the modern day.

Only one can have the girl.

loud blue boi vs. stoneface… who’s going to win?


As the new girl on the team, you were still unsure about how the team feels about you yet. You always wanted to make a great first impression with everyone and you did! The minute you first walked through those doors, Tyler and Ethan were both amazed by you. To them, you were their perfect dream girl, Tyler fell in love with your kindness and team attitude since you came in with a big smile and helped the team with anything they needed while also keeping everyone motivated during long editing session but Ethan fell in love with your silliness and energy since you were a ball of energy and have a child-like mind sometimes with you being the youngest.  The two boys have been fighting for your attention ever since you’ve started working there and honestly, you didn’t really notice. When you had a hard time grabbing things off the shelves, they would both fight to grab it for you until Kathryn or Amy gets it for you when you’re about to go grab lunch for the team, they both try to tag along but you don’t mind it.

“Tyler, I should date her because you know SHE’S CLOSER TO MY AGE!” “Ethan, I liked her before you even laid eyes on her!” “WE SAW HER AT THE SAME TIME!” “GUYS, you do know..” “STAY OUT OF IT MARK!”  Tyler and Ethan have been at each other throat all week about who’s going to date you. “[Y/N] and I have a lot more in common than you two together!“ "Cartwheeling ISN’T A BONDING!” “What’s with all the yelling?” you laughed when you walked in. “Hey [Y/N]! Ready to start filming today’s challenge?” Mark hopped over to you, dragging you to the backyard area, “What challenge?” you stated confusingly. 

“MARK, I DON’T LIKE THIS CHALLENGE!!” you tried to hide from the arrows, “IF YOU WANT TO WORK WITH US, YOU HAVE TO TAKE SOME ARROWS.” He shot one almost hitting you. “MARK! I’M JUST AN EDITOR! I SHOULD BE EDITING!” you hid behind a tree, “SO IS ETHAN BUT HE STILL TAKE SOME HITS!” he shot one at Ethan’s chest for an example, “GOD DAMNIT, MARK!” “SEE!” “SORRY, ETHAN!” you shouted from the tree.  You climbed up the tree since you didn’t want to get hit what so ever, but Mark wasn’t going to give up that easily, “THAT’S CHEATING!” he shot an arrow, almost hitting you. “MARK! I HAVE A LOT OF EDITING TO DO!” he ignores you and continue shooting until he hit your knee causing you fall off the tree but luckily your strong friend caught you in his arms, “Thanks, Tyler.” You smiled and hopped out of his arms.  “Now, when I say stop Mark…” you walked up to him and grabbed the arrow and bow, “I mean stop. I suggest you should run.” You hissed before pulling the arrow back.

After spending another hour of attacking Mark, all when back to the house and decided to chill there for the night. You were listening to your music when you heard loud whispering from your door and it has gotten to the point that you just couldn’t take it anymore so you open the door seeing Ethan and Tyler arguing. “What’s going on!” you asked seeing the boys look at you by surprise.  "WOULD YOU GO ON A DATE WITH ME!?“ They both yelled while pushing each other out their way. Your face turns red and laughs nervously, "Umm… well, you guys…” “I understand if you don’t wanna go out with a caveman, [Y/N]. I know I wouldn’t.” Ethan stopped you giving Tyler a death stare. You stopped them from bickering with a whistle, “GUYS!” you sighed with your face in your hand. “I’m not really interested… like that.” You mumbled. They gave you a confused look so you continue, “I’m into girls and I’m seeing someone sorta.” You explained. They both look at each other amazed, “I didn’t see that coming.” Ethan started laughing and Tyler joined along, “Oh my God. We were fighting all week about this and she didn’t even like us like that!” you smiled at the two boys bonding with each other, “So who are you dating?” Tyler added. “Me!” the boys turned around see Kathryn waving at them, “WHAT?” you walked over to your girlfriend and gave her a kiss on the cheek. “We’re trying to keep it on the down-low for a while so the fans wouldn’t freak out about it but yeah, we’re dating!” you explained, “But thanks for helping me today with editing and filming the challenge!” you added. The boys were silent and still processing the whole thing, “I think they need a while, let’s go to the movies so they can process this.” Kathryn whispered to you. You nodded and walked out hand and hand giggling.

“I was trying to tell you she was a lesbian!” Mark walked passed them, shaking his head, “BUT NO ONE LISTEN WANTS TO MARK!”

PLOT TWIST! IT’S A KATHRYN X FEM!READER! I actually had this idea in my head for quite a while and the original concept was going to be a new neighbor instead of a new team member but I had writer block with the neighbor one so here’s this one. I’m sorry it was shorter than usual and it’s probably not my best work but I wanted to try something new just like the Father Figure Tyler one that actually received a lot of positive reviews and I’m glad everyone like it! Anyway, I hope everyone enjoyed and I’ll see y’all later!

Kim, Katy, and Kanye are such children. They're always talking shit about Taylor and just when it seems the hatchet is buried, they start abusive and bullying shit up again. But no! Taylor is the only child despite being the youngest out of all of them and not rising to their taunts for years. Stfu bitch and get off Tumblr with your nasty ass.

Tay Tay got caught lying on a black man who has suffered severe mental health breaks since the passing of his mother. Kim as his wife, came to his defense. Legally she was wrong, morally I COMMEND HER.
Tay Tay tried to dismantle a woman’s career over a select few dancers whose loyalty lied with her. Those dancers were in an off season and Taylor knew it. When they got the call, they let her know. They got fired, possibly rightfully so but instead of stopping there she came after Katy’s livelihood, like a petulant, self-centered, CHILD.

“JAEBUM-AH!!”  

You hated that kid. Now it was clear, but the more you were forced to spend time together and the more hatred towards him grew.  

“Take Me Y/N” Jaebum yelled by continuing to wave your book, what you were quietly reading, threatening to throw it in your pool.  

“How old are you? Five?? ”  

“Ten for accuracy! You’re boring Y/N; Stop reading and come play with me. ” He threatened you, pretending to drop the book into the water. At that sight you began to run towards him and threw you on him, dropping both in the pool.

You had never been a quiet little girl and Jaebum should have learned it at his expense after all those years. Returning to the surface, you would take your breath, rest your hands on his shoulders and push him down as you could. You had three copies of that book, he simply had to pay for his behavior.  

“Now I’m going to drown you so I’ll stay at peace for my entire life!” You screamed by continuing to keep him underwater, while he clasped his arms around your legs starting to pull you down.  

“JAEBUM-SSI, Y/N-SSI”  

Your father’s personal assistant voice made you almost scared, so you left the grip on Jaebum’s shoulders and he was finally able to go back to the surface. He coughed spitting water and you threw him a deadly glance, swimming then to the ladder and coming out of the pool shuddering a little.  

“Never joke with me, Im Jaebum.” You murmured, turning to look at him, still in the middle of the pool that stared at you upset.

“I don’t like Algebra.” He objected, flapping his head on his algebra book, letting himself escape a whipped groan.

The Next True Alpha

Requested by Anon.

Request: Could you do something about if the youngest Hale became a True Alpha and Cora, Derek, Peter & generally everyone else too, are shocked because they’re not really alpha material (like lazy and nerdy) Headcannons/oneshot/whatever you choose is good with me :D 

C/N= CHILD NAME


Being the youngest Hale hasn’t always been easy. Everybody is always protecting me, even though I can protect myself. Everybody is always there to stop me from making a bad choice. Everybody is looking out for me. Not that I hate it all of the time, but sometimes, I really do.

Tonight was no different from any other night. Cora was visiting and we- Peter, Derek, Cora, and I- were all having dinner. Peter was a surprisingly good cook, and he had spent all day working on this meal. So of course, we ate every last bit. We talked for a while, especially about me and school, seeing as though I was the only one still in school being the age of only fifteen. 

After we had eaten, we all helped clean up, and then I went outside for some fresh air. Sometimes I felt alone in the family because I’m the quiet one. I’m the one who reads a lot and who is really lazy. The rest of my family hardly shares those qualities. So every once in a while, I needed some time to myself to think about the latest book I had read or the latest  TV show I had watched. I would walk and daydream about being inside one of my favorite books or TV shows. This particular night, however, felt a bit strange, like something was going to happen. I had no clue what, and I ignored the feeling.

As I was walking, I saw a child in the road, what they would be doing out this late at night, I had no idea. That wasn’t the problem. The problem was there was a car heading straight for the child. 

I started to run as fast as my legs could carry me. I needed to get to that child before they got hit. The car was close, too close. I wasn’t going to make it. None the less, I still pushed myself and got there to grab the child. I threw them aside, and let the car hit me instead. 

The car screeched to a stop, but I didn’t hear a driver get out. I heard the car start to move, and I opened my eyes. The care was backing up and it turned. The driver drove off. They had just hit me and they just drove off! But then, I remembered the child. As I was dragging myself to them I heard a voice yell, “C/N!” 

I looked back and saw a woman running towards us. “Oh! C/N!“ 

The lady ran and engulfed the child into her arms. 

I could feel myself healing, and I didn’t want the woman to think I was some sort of creature because I had just gotten hit by a car and was perfectly fine. I covered my face with my hair and ran off, limping along the way. The whole time I could hear the lady shouting after me.


When I got home, I told no one what had happened. If they found out that I was hit by a car, they would be all over me all night long. I walked thought the door, and headed up to the bathroom to take a shower, ignoring them talking to me the entire time. 

After my shower, I got in bed. I have school tomorrow, so I needed to be well rested. I fell into a dreamless sleep. 


Later that night, I awoke to a burning sensation in my stomach. I was thinking about calling for Derek, but as soon as I opened my mouth, it had gone away. Weird. Then, there was a bright flash, and I was on my feet, looking about my room. What was that? After standing for a while, I got back in bed and laid there until I fell asleep again.


The next morning, I got up to get ready for school. I was the only one up since I was the only one that had to go to school. I walked into the bathroom, and turned on the lights. I started to brush my teeth and wash my face and everything, but something felt different. Something felt weird. So being a natural born werewolf, my instincts popped in. I looked in the mirror and showed my real eyes. I almost screamed at what I saw. They weren’t their normal yellow, they were a deep, blood red. The eyes of an Alpha.

I hadn’t killed anybody, so I was confused at how I could be an Alpha. I closed my eyes and then opened them, but they hadn’t changed. The only way that I could be an Alpha was if I was a True Alpha. But there was only one True Alpha in town, and that was one of my best friends, Scott McCall. I didn’t know what to do but let out a joyful shriek and continue with my morning. 

Of course, I didn’t tell my family. Yet. If I had woken them up this early and they found out, I wouldn’t be going to school today, and I had a test, so I had to go to school. 

After I had finished getting ready, I headed out the door, and walked towards the corner of the street. There waited the Jeep that held my two best friends, Scott and Stiles. 

“Hey guys.” I said as I hopped into the car. 

“Hey, Y/N.” They both said. 

“Are we still on for the Pack meeting at your brother’s?” Scott asked. 

“Oh yeah.” I grinned.

“Great.” Stiles started to drive and I was debating on whether or not I should tell them about my eyes, but I decided to wait until everybody was at the loft tonight for the meeting. 


Later that night, everybody was piling into the loft for the meeting. I had waited all day to spill the beans, and it had been dreadful. Of course, as soon as I got home I checked to see if my eyes were still red, and they were. This was for real. 

Everybody stood around the large table that Derek had set in the middle of the room.  We hadn’t started and everybody was talking amongst themselves, but I couldn’t hold it in any longer.

“Guys.” I whispered. I realized that they couldn’t hear me, so I spoke louder. “Guys.” 

They stopped and looked towards me. “I have something that I need to tell you, but I need you to promise me one thing.” 

“Okay?” Cora said.

“Promise?”

“We promise, Y/N.” Peter said. 

“Okay.” I stated. “Well, I guess I should start where I saved that kid last night.” 

“You did what?” Derek asked.

“On my walk, there was this kid, and she was going to get hit by a car, so I ran and threw her out of the way, and I took the hit instead.” Everybody opened their mouths but I stopped them. “Wait until I finish, please. So, anyway, I took the hit, the driver drove away without even checking to see if I was alright, the girl’s mom came out and before she could thank me I had run off.” I stopped for a moment to let everybody take this in. 

“So? You saved a little girl. We’re really proud.” Cora said.

“That’s not the point of this story.”

“Then what is?” Lydia asked.

Without telling them anything, I looked down and looked back up. Everybody gasped and took a step back. “Wha-?” Derek said. 

“When did this happen?” Peter asked.

“Early last night, I guess.” I stated and looked back down. 

“But, you’re not out going or anything. You’re really shy and-” 

“So was I.” Scott stated. “Not only is there another Alpha in this Pack, but there’s another True Alpha. High five, Y/N!” Scott held up his hand and I high fived it. 

“We’re really proud of you.” Cora stated. 

“Yeah.” Peter agreed and came over to me. He lifted me up in a hug. I laughed and hugged him back. After he set me down, Derek came over and kissed my head. “I’m really proud.” 

“Thanks guys.” I said. 

“Anytime.” Stiles said. “No offense, but there’s another threat in town and I think we need to talk about it.” 

“Yeah.” Scott said.

“Alright.” I smiled. “Let the Pack meeting begin.”

1. I Write Sins, Not Tragedies by cuttlemefish || Rated E, 4.1k (WIP)

Things would be a little easier if Yuuri wasn’t so in love with his husband Viktor, especially considering they have an arranged marriage. Two years after their wedding, Yuuri and Viktor are incredibly in love, but can’t seem to get over the hump of their platonic union to consummate their marriage! Good thing Yuuri is the most (in)famous erotic fanfiction author of the Love in the Streets fandom. Now, he’s got the support of the Internet to figure out how to seduce his husband, if only he can continue to keep their identities a secret. Or, the AU in which everyone thinks Yuuri and Viktor have the perfect marriage full of adventurous sex when, in fact, Viktor sleeps in the guest bedroom and Yuuri writes erotic fanfiction to quench his thirst.

  • This is both hilarious and painful to read because of Yuuri’s situation and evident desperation. There’s a fandom side to it too, as Yuuri writes fanfiction and interacts with other people as a fan, and I thought it was done well. Off to an amazing start, I look forward to see how things play out and if Victor will ever get a clue.

2. Frozenheart & Hiddenfire by Thehobbem || Rated T, 30k (WIP)

Being the youngest child in a family means you get to leave home and find Riches and Adventures your older siblings could only dream of - but Yuuri Katsuki wants nothing more than stay home and hide from Destiny. Which will be much harder to do once a certain ice wizard comes into town.

  • A howl’s moving castle au that hits all the right notes with the magic and everyone’s attitudes. I find Yuuri and Yurio’s dynamic quite sweet as well. It clenches your heart at the right moments and makes you laugh at the best moments. 

3. Prince Mari by QueenofFennoscandia || Rated T, 5.2k (WIP)

Mother, father,
I think I might have made a huge mistake.

Yours sincerely,

Your loving son
Crown Prince of Hasetsu
Katsuki Yuuri

  • A royalty au with identity shenanigans! It says it’s only to be 3 chaters long, and I can’t wait >.<

4. Half a Bowl of Katsudon by Saccha || Rated G, 4.4k (WIP)

(letsdancexx): what’s this about vicnic? I’m off the internet for a day and everything explodes.
(VictorsWife822): didn’t you hear? Victor was kidnapped by Yuuri Katsuki!
(letsdancexx): who’s yuuri katsuki? lol

In which Yuuri Katsuki, Dread God of the dead, abducts Victor Nikiforov, the god of grace and beauty. Except not.

  • Hades and Persephone-ish au with a modern twist, complete with outside perspective from social media and romantic shenanigans. 

5. 24 Ore by cutthroatpixie || Rated G, 3.9k

Yuuri had no idea that Sara transferring to another location would have such a domino effect on his love life, of all things.

  • Short and sweet fitness au with side saramila, dance instructor Victor, and Yuuri and Victor dancing on the regular. Short and sweet and satisfying.

Babysitting - Alfie Solomons

Alfie babysitting your kids had come about in a rather unusual way. Most things that transpired between you and Alfie did honestly. You had begun working for him just over three years ago after your husband, who had been a devoted member of Alfie’s distillery and subsequent gang, died in a knife fight. Alfie, who had felt guilty over the death, offered you a position at the bakery and compensation for your husband’s troubles. You gladly took him up on the offer, being that you were newly pregnant with your youngest and you had another child at home to feed.

Returning Home (E.D. and G.D. x Sister!Reader)

Requested: Yes by anon

Request: Open

A/N:  So this is based a couple months after the twins came home and took a break and then went back to L.A. I thought this was super cute so..

this might be really dumb but would you do a thing where the reader is their sister?

It had been a couple months since you had seen any of your family members besides your mom and dad. Your older sister, Cameron Dolan, and your two older twin brothers, Ethan Dolan and Grayson Dolan, were somewhere else in the world. You were stuck in New Jersey, spending your days going to high school, and unpacking boxes in your new house you had just moved into. Cameron was back in college, and Grayson and Ethan were back in L.A. making YouTube videos. It’s not like you didn’t text, call, and FaceTime them all the time, but it wasn’t the same as them being home. You had planned to stay with Ethan and Grayson for fall break, and Cameron would be there too, but that was another month away. It’s was really hard being the youngest child, but it was even harder with all of your siblings of somewhere else.  

Making friends at school wasn’t easy either. Everyone thought it would be easy for you, being the younger sister of the Dolan Twins, but that only made it harder. People only wanted to be “friends” with your for fame. They thought that they would eventually get to meet your twin brothers and then get famous through them, and you were not going to let people use you for fame. It’s happened way to many times, and now you can barely trust people. The only friends you had, were the people you’ve been friends with since you were kids, because you knew that they liked you for you.

The day you started school was the day that the twins, Cameron, and your mom, all had to fly out to the TCA’s. They all drove you to school and then you said your goodbyes and they headed for the airport. You couldn’t come with them because you were starting school that week, and your mom said you were not missing the first day of school. So that day was the last day that you saw them. It was now two months into school and you were dreading it. Sophomore year sucked. You had no classes with your friends, and whenever someone heard your last name they would always ask, “Are you related to the Dolan Twins?”, which you always responded with a yes. You were sitting on your bed in your room, working on your AP European History notes when you heard your mom scream your name.

“Y/N!” she yelled. You took your head out of your book and looked around, making sure you heard your name being yelled.

“What?” you yelled back.

“Can you come down here so I don’t have to yell?” You moved your books out of the way, pulled the blanket off of you, grabbed your phone, and walked down the stairs to talk to your mom. You walked into the kitchen, finding your mom cooking dinner.

“Can you grab us some drinks from the garage?” ask your mother while she’s cutting up carrots.

“Yeah of course. What do you want?” you ask before putting your phone on the counter, so that you would be able to carry all the drinks.

“I will pour myself some sweet tea, but your father will take a Coke.” You headed your way towards the garage door. You walked to the refrigerator and opened the door.

“Can you grab two Sprites and another Coke?” said a voice behind you. You whipped your head around and in front of you was Grayson. You screamed and dropped the Coke that was in your hand. It exploded when it hit the floor. You whispered an “Oops” to yourself and then ran to Grayson. You jumped into his open arms. Your legs wrapped around his waist and your arms wrapped around his neck. Tears were running down your face and onto Grayson’s neck, and whispers of “I missed you” and “I love you” were said. After a while, you dropped off of him and wiped your tears.

“Where’s Ethan?” you asked, looking up at Grayson. He grinned at you, and backed up. Ethan was right behind Grayson. The same rush of emotions came over you and caused you to run into Ethan’s open arms, just as you did with Grayson. After you had calmed down and climbed off of Ethan, you wiped your tears.

“I can’t believe you keep on surprising me!” you said with excitement in your voice. Both boys laughed. “Last time you guys came back home, you surprised me.”

“Well, we like making you happy.” Grayson blushed.

“Yeah, and mom called us up and told us that you weren’t very happy right now. And we were not going to let our baby sister be unhappy.” babied Ethan.

“Of course mom did.” you said, rolling your eyes. “But I’m happy you guys are back.” They pulled you into a group hug and you couldn’t be happier.

“A Normal Life” (Part 1) - Raphael/Jace Wayland

Originally posted by izzylightfray

(not my gif)

REQUEST: (Y/N) is Raphael’s lil sis and she meets the shadowhunters for the first time when they break into the Hotel, she’s Nothing but nice to them but vampires Attack them and she tries to stop them and is hurt by one of the vampires. When Raphael comes, she is the one going into trouble, even if it wasn’t her fault, and she storms out. Later, (Y/N) is captured by werewolves and Raphael allies with shadowhunters to save her. And in all this, Jace starts to like her. (PART 2) (PART 3)

(Y/N) always wondered what it would be like to be a mundane. She always wondered what it would be like to go to high school, to grab a hot chocolate with her friends during free period. She always wondered what it would be like to have a normal life, because her life was far from being normal or mundane. (Y/N) was a vampire. She was raised by her older brother, Raphael, when their parents’ life was abruptly ended a few years ago. (Y/N)’s life was Nothing more than feeding on fresh blood and avoiding daylight. She would spend her days wandering around the Hotel Dumort and her nights wandering around the city, watching mundanes go on with their normal and peaceful lives.

One night, as the sun finally went to sleep, (Y/N) hurried down the stairs and towards the exit of the Hotel Dumort, eager to observe mundanes once more, and to breathe some fresh air.
‘Ironic’, she thought, as she was a vampire, which meant that she was dead and breathing didn’t mean anything to her anymore.
But while she was quickly making her way across the large hall, the door slowly opened before she could even reach the door handle and four silhouettes stood before her. The only source of light in the Hotel Dumort was coming from several torches lined on the walls, but it was enough for (Y/N) to notice that these people weren’t her fellows vampires. Actually, she had no idea who these people were, but she was hoping they were mundanes who got curious and entered the gloomy-looking place that was the Hotel Dumort.

“Hello.” (Y/N) said, grinning and excited at the idea of having a conversation with mundanes.
But all her hopes vanished when the two boys pointed their weapons at her. She came to realize that the four teenagers were shadowhunters, although she had never met one before. Her brother, Raphael, warned her about their kind and always made sure that she would never come across one of them.
But (Y/N) didn’t think these people looked as bad as her brother described, even if one of the boys was pointing a sharp blade at her and the other one was aiming an arrow to her head. Even then, she didn’t stop smiling gently at them.
“There is no need to point your weapons at me. I’m not going to hurt any of you.” (Y/N) declared. Then she walked closer to the four teenagers, she paused a second to examine their faces before speaking again.
“I’m (Y/N).” She held out a hand for them to shake, but as expected, none of them did. They didn’t take their eyes off her and (Y/N) sighed before dropping her hand back to her side.
“We know you have the mundane.” One of the boy said. His blonde, almost gold, hair shone in the faint light and his beautiful eyes were set on her as he looked at her rather coldly.
“I beg your pardon?” (Y/N) asked politely, frowning at the boy’s words.
“The mundane-” He started again.
“Simon.” The red-headed girl corrected him.
“Simon.” The blonde one –also known as Jace Wayland, repeated as his jaw clenched in anger.”We know you have him, and we’re here to get him back.” He finished.
“I’m sorry but I really don’tt know what you’re talking about.” (Y/N) explained, confused at why a bunch of shadowhunters would think a mundane had been brought into the vampires’ household.
“Where is he?” The red-headed girl, Clary, asked.
“I assure you, there is no mundane here. Kidnapping a mundane is against the Accords, I-”
But before (Y/N) could finish, a cold metal was pressed against her neck and Jace had stepped closer to her.
“Where is he? Tell us and we won’t kill you.” He said, his voice cold and threatening.
(Y/N) held her hands in the air, as a sign of surrender.
“I told you. I don’t understand what you’re talking about. I wish I could help you, I really do, but I think you made a mistake.” (Y/N) declared. She didn’t look scared because she wasn’t, she was just confused.
“He is my best friend!” Clary said behind the blonde boy. “Just tell us where he is and we will leave.” She added desperately.
“I’m gonna ask you one more time. Where is the mundane?” Jace said through gritted teeth.
“I don’t-”
“Let her go!” A voice shouted from the shadows, cutting her off in her attempt to tell the boy one more time that she didn’t know anything about a mundane being held captive in the Hotel Dumort.

The five heads shot in the direction where the person had spoken. (Y/N) recognised her brother’s voice and she saw the angry look on his face as he took a step forward. He was followed by the rest of the vampire clan.
When Raphael noticed that Jace didn’t put his weapon away from his little sister’s throat, he spoke again, getting impatient.
“I said, let her go. She doesn’t know anything about the mundane.”
Jace slowly lowered his blade and quickly glanced at (Y/N) before setting his blue eyes back on the angry-looking vampire.
“(Y/N), go to your room.” Raphael ordered.
“I’m not six anymore, Raphael.” (Y/N) spat. She was getting tired of being treated like a child by her brother. She was the youngest vampire of the clan, but she wasn’t a baby.
Raphael stared at her with furious eyes and was about to reprimand her when Clary cut him off.
“Where is Simon?” The short girl asked one more, she sounded both determined and concerned.
“Ah, Simon. You must be talking about the fidgety and chatty mundane who just ruined my new jacket by throwing a knife at me. Yeah, he is upstairs.” Raphael declared with a malicious grin on his pale face.
(Y/N), who was still standing next to the four shadowhunters, looked surprised and angry all at once.
“So, what they said is true? You kidnapped a mundane?” (Y/N) asked furiously.
“Calm down, hermana. I didn’t kidnap anyone, Camille did.”
(Y/N) got angrier at the mention of Camille’s name. She never liked the woman, but she was the Head of the vampire clan, so even if she was an annoying bitch, (Y/N) had to consider her like family. But (Y/N)’s only family was and will always be Raphael. Although Raphael could also be an annoying bitch sometimes, (Y/N) was always going to be there for him, because he was her brother,he raised her and protected her, and she loved him.
“Just let them have their friend back, Raphael.” (Y/N) said, more calmly.
“I can’t. Camille said she wanted him to be there when she gets back.” The vampire declared. “Camille gave an order, the mundane is not going anywhere.” He added.
(Y/N) walked towards her brother, as if to reason with him, but he held a hand in the air to let her know that she should stay out of it. She stopped in the middle of the hall, standing between the shadowhunters and the vampires.
“I advise you to leave my home now, shadowhunters.” Raphael said.
“We’re not going anywhere without Simon.” The other girl spoke for the first time since she got here.
Raphael frowned and turned around to look at his fellow vampires, who have been standing behind the boy since he walked into the room.
“Get rid of them.”

(Y/N)’s eyes widened at her brother’s last words. She didn’t have time to react before the herd of vampires jumped at the shadowhunters’ throats.
(Y/N)’s eyes glanced around the room but couldn’t find her brother. As she tried to make her way back upstairs to release the mundane, she was knocked down by a vampire. She stood back up immediately, and instead of rushing up the stairs, she ran into the fight.
“Guys! Stop!” (Y/N) shouted but her words were ignored, and the fight got more intense.
“Stop! They are not the enemy! Let them go!” (Y/N) shouted again, but her voice was muffled by angry groans.
Then, her eyes found the red-headed girl who was trying to defend herself, but she wasn’t doing a very good job at it. Then, (Y/N) spotted the blonde boy who was violently pinned against the wall by two vampires. The blade which he had been threatening (Y/N) with was now lying on the floor.

(Y/N) refused to watch people getting hurt and getting killed without doing anything to help, even if it meant she had to disobey her brother and go against her people. She ran towards Clary first and helped her, punching a vampire in the jaw. The red-headed girl didn’t have time to thank her because (Y/N) was already heading towards Jace. She grabbed one of the vampire by his shirt and pushed him hard, which made him stumbled backwards and fell onto the floor. Then, (Y/N) kicked the other vampire in the knee which caused him to crash on the floor too. (Y/N) picked up the shadowhunter’s blade and handed it to him. The boy looked very surprised, thinking that the vampire girl was going to use his own weapon to kill him. But after a few seconds of astonishment, Jace took his seraph blade from (Y/N)’s cold hand and instead of thanking her, the words which coming out of his mouth were:
“Watch out!”
(Y/N) frowned and turned around. The vampire she had thrown onto the ground was back on his feet, and he was looking furiously at the young girl. She knew she hadn’t been fast enough when she felt defeaning pain on the side of her face. The vampire had hit her in the face, scratching her skin with his long and sharp nails. (Y/N) lost her balance and fell onto the floor. She winced as she pressed her hand against her already-bruised cheek.
(Y/N) heard her name leaving the blonde’s mouth but before she could look up at him, a hand lifted her off the floor.
“Everybody stop!” Raphael shouted.
The vampire was not only holding his sister’s arm but he was also holding the arm of an unfamiliar boy. Raphael stood in the middle of the crowd, he looked furiously at the shadowhunters.
“Here. Take your stupid mundane and get the hell out of here before I suck you all dry.” He spat.
The mundane was released and was in Clary’s arms in no time. (Y/N) wondered what it was like to have a best friend, someone you love so much that you are willing to risk your life in a vampire’s den in order to save theirs.

The hunters exited the Hotel Dumort and Jace was the last one to leave. But before he did, he looked back at (Y/N), who was still holding her cheek in pain. She was surprised to see the expression on his face. He looked as though he felt bad about her getting hurt and getting into trouble, which was most likely going to happen. But Jace didn’t say a word and left the Hotel Dumort to get back to his friends.
(Y/N) wondered what it would be like to have friends. She wondered what it would be like to be alive again, to be able to breathe again. She wondered what it would be like to have a normal life.

My Italian-American Pidge Headcanons

Being Italian-American myself I couldnt help but make some headcanons of my own. Most of them are completely based on my own family as well as stories from other Italian-American friends!!

  • Pidge has 3-5 members in her family named after her great grandfather including her father. Samuel, her cousins Samuel, Samuel III, and Samantha. Also Matthews middle name is Samuel.They’re all nicknamed Sam so when they get together and you say Sam four heads pop to attention.
  • Pidge and Matt have that one Italian Stallion cousin. He was thinking of changing his middle name to Bruno, but the entire family laughed it off cause it was so stereotypically Italian.
  • Her aunt has a cross collection in the house though none of them are perfect Catholics.
  • Most of her family smokes a cigar on special occasions. Smoke is annoying so she sits inside and watches the adults cook.
  • Her grandmother still has the stereotypical women do the dishes rule and every holiday she questions authority. Matt helps her by doing the dishes with her even though he should be “socializing”
  • Her grandmother has a living room then a living room. One you can chill in and the other is one you don’t dare step foot in. One time her father threw a party with his siblings at the house when they were in college and the only way his mother found out was because there was a water ring on the glass table in the living room.
  • The Holts were planning a trip to Italy when Matthew and Samuel came back. When the crash was announced they completely canceled it
  • When Katie’s grandmother met Lance she was APPALLED. How could Katie let her friend get so small. She fed him his fill while he visited and it reminded him of his family a bit.
  • Yes thin crust pizza is life, but pizza is pizza. Any pizza is good if you can appreciate the way it’s made. Though nothing will live up to the pizza you make at home with the family. Pidge hates admitting it but her secret pleasure are those “deep dish” microwavable pizzas. They are convenient when you’re up all night.
  • Carbs. What else exists except carbs.
  • Every occasion is a big occasion even when she just brings Lance and Hunk over to play games on the big tv.
  • SNACK CUPBOARD HAS EVERYTHING
  • Every day is cleaning day, dust is a constant, nothing is ever clean for long.
  • Were having pasta for dinner for like the 2 day in a row.
  • Christmas Baking!!!
  • Pidge wears red undies on New Year’s Eve and eats an even number of grapes.
  • There are hundreds of recipes from their great grandmother.
  • Getting the special fresh parmesan on holidays and just plain eating it. So good
  • She had one sip of limoncello once and she noped the fuck out of there
  • Prefers a bit of dessert wine with biscotti when her mom allows. Along with the special occasion red wine.
  • Pampered being the youngest female child
