birthday-special

Fic: Don’t You Forget About Me (Ao3 Link)
Fandom: DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Irish Mythology
Pairing: Mick Rory/Leonard Snart

Summary: After Len, nothing seems to be going right for Mick. He keeps going listlessly -

- at least until something cold as death starts crawling into his bed.

(In which Mick Rory braves the Sidhe to win back his True Love)

A/N: For @jq-piccadilly - happy birthday!! (also special mentions to @ice-whisper who inadvertently gave me the idea and @oneiriad, for who this fulfills another Coldwave Bingo Board entry)

————————————————————————————–

After Len died, everything sort of stopped, for Mick.

Oh, he kept going, kept fighting, kept up with the great and noble mission to which he had been consigned by destiny and by Len. The flesh of him kept right on going.

It was the spirit of him that came to a halt.

He stopped caring about the things that made him happy, before; stopped caring about the game, or food, or even fun; stopped caring all too much about being alive.

But he kept going and time, wicked time, starts healing even his most dire wounds.

Mick had a chair in his room - big, comfy, just the way he liked it. It was good that it was so comfy, because he slept there, now, forsaking the bed in his cabin.

The bed that had been his and his Lenny’s both.

Becoming Real: Bestie's Birthday

In this installment of Becoming Real, Diana decides to go all out for her bestie’s birthday. Emma and Diana haven’t been able to see each other as much since Diana started college, so Diana takes a bunch of the money she’s saved up to make Emma’s birthday extra special. @coveofmemories @the-slytherin-ice-queen @cosmicjennifer @remember-me-forever-silent-angel @ultrarebelheart @mxolh @tinyplanet-explorers @burnbrightdoll

                                                               —-

After telling her dads where she’d be all day, Diana left the house and headed toward Emma’s. It had been a long time since the two of them had spent the day just the two of them, so considering it was her bestie’s birthday, she figured what better way to celebrate than go out all day, and then cap the night off with her girlfriend. “Emma!” Diana laughed, smacking against the door over and over again. She pulled the coat closer to her frame as Emma’s mom opened the door. “Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday, my Emma! Happy birthday to you! Get your ass down here!” 

Emma’s parents laughed in the corner as she ran down the stairs and enveloped Diana in a tight hug. “So what are we doing today? You wouldn’t tell me before now.”

“And I still won’t,” she said. “I’ve been saving the stipend I get from school. Let’s go.” With a quick wave to Emma’s parents, the two girls headed out the door hand-in-hand. 

                                                              —-

As they walked inside the spa, Emma had a blindfold over her eyes. “Can I open them yet? Where the hell are we?”

“Would you shut up?” Diana laughed. They were finally at the spa. After months of saving her stipend from the school, she’d saved up enough money for the two of them to have a spa day. 

Emma was going to freak. “Where are we?” she asked, looking around their serene surroundings. 

“Well, over the past few months I’ve been saving up my stipend from school and I figured we could have a spa day, because I miss you and we haven’t had time just the two of us lately.” Emma jumped up and down as one of the spa employees came out and introduced herself.

“You must be the birthday girl,” she said, shaking both of their hands. “Then you must be Diana Alvez-Reid. Nice to meet you both.” Her smile was unnaturally perky, but given the atmosphere, Diana wasn’t all that surprised. “Your friend has purchased two 4-hour packages for you both today. The fire package that you purchased includes a hot stone massage, a relaxed facial, a spa manicure and pedicure and food for the day.”

Emma turned to her bestie and looked like she wanted to cry. “How much did this cost you?” she asked, her eyes wide. It wasn’t cheap, but Diana didn’t need the stipend all that much save for gas to and from school, so she was able to save most of it. 

“I’m not telling you,” she laughed. “Massage time?”

“Oh my god, yes,” Emma replied, grabbing Diana’s hand and bringing her into another hug. “I can’t believe you. I love you, but I can’t believe you.”

As they made their way to the back room where they’d get their massages, Emma jumped up and down some more. “Just consider it a birthday present slash you got into college present,” Diana laughed.

For a few moments, the masseuses left the room so the two could get undressed. They’d seen each other naked before, so Diana just threw off her clothes and got on the table. “Ow ow!” Emma laughed. Once they were ready to got, the masseuse returned with a friend and began the lovely hour-long process of giving a hot stone massage. “Oh my god.”

Diana did the same two seconds later when the stones were laid on her back. “This is ahhhmazing,” she sighed, closing her eyes. With the stress of college for Diana, and the stress of choosing a college in Emma’s case, both desperately needed to relax, so by the time the massage was over they’d both nearly fallen asleep on the tables. Again, the masseuses excused themselves so Diana and Emma could get changed. 

“Do we have to move,” Emma whispered, barely mustering up enough energy to push herself upward. “That was amazing. I could do that alone and be satisfied.” After getting dressed, they sat in the massage chairs at the front of spa to get ready for the facials. 

The woman they’d seen earlier, and one of the masseuses came over to explain the facials. “You’ve both purchased a 60-minute facial, which includes a double cleanse, exfoliation, extractions if need be, a masque, a toner, and our specially-crafted skin protection cream,” she said, her face sounding more like a robot than a human. When Emma side-eyed Diana, she could tell her friend noticed it too. 

“Do we get the cucumbers?” Emma laughed, not actually thinking that was a really thing. 

The woman’s outstretched smile didn’t move an inch. “Oh yes,” she said. “I’ll be right back.” Within minutes, she returned with every product imaginable and began their next hour of relaxed bliss. 

“Have I said this is amazing?” Emma asked.

Diana couldn’t help but laugh. The longer they were here, the longer they started to sound like the employees. Just unbelievably relaxed. “Yea, you definitely have. Have you decided what you’re gonna do in school?”

Emma had long since wanted to be a tattoo artist, and she was exceptionally talented, so when Diana’s tattooist, Tiana, mentioned being able to help, she determined that was definitely what she wanted to do. “I’m going to go for two years, take every art class imaginable to hone my craft and then Tiana said she’d help me look for a job tattooing. I really, really love it. If they happen to be hiring at the time and my skills are up to par, she said she might even hire me.”

“That’s awesome,” Diana replied, with as much enthusiasm as she could muster given that she was so stupidly relaxed. “When you’re an amazing, world-renowned tattoo artist, you totally have to give me one.”

“Absolutely.” While one of the facial masks was drying, the were entitled to lunch at the spa, which consisted of some sandwiches a bottle of water and either an apple, banana, or a small bag of chips. “You still on the pediatrics route or you think you might wanna do something different?”

“Right now, I can’t imagine doing anything else, but I guess I’ll have to get an internship first and then if that doesn’t suit me, I’ll have to look into something else.” The hour went by too fast, but as soon as they were done, their skin was absolutely flawless. 

“There is literally not a pore on my face right now,” Emma laughed as she looked in the mirror. “Fingers and toes now? God, I feel so pampered. I can’t get used to this.” They both picked crazy colors for their nails; Diana went with bright blue and Emma went with neon green. Then they sat down and it was like you’d see in the movies. A spa of hot water was placed at their feet and then a manicurist sat at their side to do their nails. “I could literally fall asleep right now.”

Diana felt her on a spiritual level. “Me too. My classes just keep getting harder and harder.”

“Well you had to expect that,” Emma said. “And for you, it’s only gonna get worse, but you’re like the smartest person in the world, so you’ll be fine. At least now, you’re actually being challenged.”

This much was true, but sometimes as she did her homework, she’d wonder if she’d gotten more than she bargained for. “True. But I can’t wait until the end of the semester.”

“Yea, you’re going on vacation with your dad and some of your family friends, right?” Emma and Alicia had actually planned a week-long getaway for their first week off too, as a delayed anniversary celebration. “Any of them have cute sons or daughters you could hook up with?” 

Diana smiled. Her ‘Uncle’ Derek and ‘Aunt’ Savannah would be there with Hank, the oldest, and the twins, Amaya and Penelope, and her ‘Aunt’ JJ and ‘Uncle’ Will would be there with Henry and Michael who would be taking off from school and work. “Well, Michael is going to be there, and so is Derek’s son Hank. The twins are too young for me and Henry is taken, so it’s between Michael and Hank. Both are hot, so I think I’m going to have them battle for my affections.”

“That’s my girl,” Emma laughed, high-fiving Diana after the manicure had dried. “Where is it again?”

“Sugarbush Resort in Vermont,” she said. Their time was almost up, so Diana pulled out the checkbook and wrote out the price without Emma seeing. Once everything was paid up, they left and got back into Diana’s car, but it was a while before either of them felt like they wanted to drive; they just sat in the car talking some more.

All of a sudden, Emma’s stomach grumbled. “As much as I appreciated the food in there, I’m ridiculously hungry. You wanna do dinner? My treat.”

“Yea that sounds great,” Diana yawned. “I want french fries.”

“But you’ll ruin your skin with all that oil,” Emma said sarcastically, reiterating what the woman had said earlier about a healthy diet going a long way to extending the results of the facial.

Diana shrugged. “Fuck that, I want fries.”

“Good. Me too.”

happy birthday to my special boy !!!!
it’s a hamster plush party

Hi, Dad. You son of a bitch. I never made one of these when you were still responding because I was so mad at you for leaving. And then when you went quiet, I feel like I should’ve lived with that decision, and I have. But today is my birthday. And it’s a special one, because you told me… you once told me that when you come back we might be the same age. And today I’m the age you were when you left. So it would be a real good time for you to come back.

Interstellar (2014) dir. Christopher Nolan

WARNING: SERIOUS OVERLOAD OF FEELING OVER A BEAUTIFUL AND SPECIAL BIRTHDAY BOY AHEAD!

Today is the birthday of a young man so amazing, so fantastic, the world stops when his name is mentioned (or at least my world)

Today is the birthday of the one and only Min Yoongi also known as Suga or Agust D.

The first time I discovered Suga was a year and a half ago. Indeed, I had just signed up to kpop amino and someone added me to a ‘Suga appreciation chat’. And since i then wanted to fit in I was like ‘yea of course i know him’ while quickly searching for him. And before i Knew it I was trapped. 

Min Yoongi is passionate

From the Other Side of the Signing Table

“I don’t know what to say to you,” the girl said. “Um, thanks, I guess.”

“Thanks is good,” I replied.

Silence stretched, punctuated only by the scuffle of a Sharpie on a page.

We were in the same boat, the girl and I — both at a book festival, both at the end of a long day full of people, both in a signing line that had been going on for an hour already. There was only one big difference between us: she was on one side of the table, and I was on the other. Sometimes that difference seems to matter more than others.

Before I was published, I read a lot of accounts of what it was like to have your work out there, but I never read anything about what it was like to have yourself out there. I suppose I never really thought about it, to tell you the truth. I thought you wrote a book and hopefully people liked it and if I thought about book tours at all, I figured they involved standing on a stage for a bit before disappearing into a rental car. The truth, however, is that now — ten years and fifteen novels in to my career — most of my hours in front of people are spent in a signing line. Forty minutes on a stage or behind a table for a panel, and then two or three hours meeting a few hundred strangers. I had no idea what it would be like.

This is what it’s like.

happy (late) birthday zen

You son of a bitch. I never made one of these when you were still responding because I was so mad at you for leaving. And then when you went quiet, it felt like I should live with that decision, and I have. But today is my birthday. And it’s a special one, because you told me… you once told me that when you come back we might be the same age. And today I’m the same age you were when you left. So it would be a real good time for you to come back.

certain states try to restrict what a food card can buy so much, and it really fucks disabled people over, for instance some states either don’t allow for microwaved meals to be bought or are trying to make it so a food card cant cover them, which is absurd because … if you’re disabled it’s kind of fucking hard to cook a full meal for yourself, if not impossible.

Restrictions on poor people’s diets is violence. Just because someones poor doesn’t mean you should police how they should eat. Would you fucking want to live on nothing but rice and beans for the rest of your life because you’re disabled and thats all you can afford?

would you want to never have any sweets or easy to eat snacks because you’re too poor and too disabled to afford such things even for your birthday or special occasions. Or would you want to only be able to afford frozen/canned vegetables never being able to taste a fresh salad or even a fucking apple?

Because lawmakers think poor people, and especially poor disabled people don’t deserve fresh fruits and vegetables, snack foods, cake, and the list goes on. 

We are people who cannot work because we’re disabled and you are punishing us for it. Some of us need easy food to eat, some of us need fattening food to eat because we’re underweight, some of us need special diets due to allergies, and restricting what all people on food cards can eat can get people killed.
