“Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to (Y/N), Happy Birthday to you.” The gang sang around the kitchen of your house, you couldn’t stop blushing staring at each one of them smiling broadly at you. “Make a wish,” Lydia squealed, shoving the cake closer to your face. You caught the dark eyes of the werewolf through the candle’s fire; you smirked at him before blowing the candles out – not breaking eye contact with Derek who shifted awkwardly in his chair.

Scott switched the lights back on and patted you on the back. “Congrats for making it to 18.” You thanked him silently with a smile and stood up from being centre of attention. “Now cut that cake so I can eat it,” You teased, flattening your short black dress more and taking a sip of the alcohol in your red cup. It wasn’t a massive party that you were having; you only wanted your closest and dearest friends to come and celebrate with you. You were confused when Derek walked in with Scott at the start of the night, the pair of you weren’t close; of course, excluding the night that you spent with him in his loft. Other than then, you would only exchange small talk and smirks from across the one.

No one in the gang has figured out what happened between you and him, you were sure to keep it that way. Lydia cut the cake; ten slices for the eight guests that were here. You thanked her for the slice and wandered off to the living room where Stiles and Isaac were sitting playing video games. Derek’s gaze was transfixed on you as you wandered around the kitchen and then to the living room; talking and smiling at everyone you passed. Derek never noticed how kind and down-to-earth you were until he had you wrapped up in the sheets breathing heavily.

When he first met you, he didn’t think much of you. You were pretty but he had no intention due to the age gap. You kept him on his toes; he was walking around eggshells with you, but once that night happened, all walls collapsed and he wanted to get to know you and be with you more – preferably alone.

You waved goodbye to Lydia who was the final person to leave your house at around midnight. You shut the door and took a deep breath realizing that you were home alone. Your parents booked a night out of town so that you and your friends could have the house all to yourselves without parents butting in to the conversations. Walking to the kitchen, you near jumped out of your skin when you say a tall, handsome man with a trash bag in his hand cleaning up after the party.

“Derek, what are you still doing here? Other than trying to give me a heart attack.” You chuckled, picking up the other black bag and stuffing the nine pizza boxes in it. He mumbled an excuse causing you to roll your eyes and continued cleaning. The silence between you two wasn’t awkward, it was relaxing and it put you at ease knowing you weren’t alone.

“You’re something,” He mused, turning to face you in the chair that he sat in now. You looked at him with a raised eyebrow, “I mean, I never thought that I’d start falling for a younger girl – that was until you convinced me otherwise.” You looked at him with wide eyes, he was falling for you? You didn’t want that to happen. You wanted a one night, maybe two night, stand and leave it at that. “Derek,” You muttered when he started towards you, “I didn’t want, I don’t want a relationship.” You pointed out to him, gasping when he placed his lips straight onto your sweet spot.

He nibbled the spot – sucking, and licking, “Who said that I wanted a relationship?” You rested your head against the fridge, giving him more access to your neck. He kissed down your collarbone and towards your breast which the dress made look amazing. You felt his hand slide down your side, to the hem of your dress and slipping under it. His finger slipped under your panties and he rubbed his finger along your clit, feeling how wet he was making you with simple kisses and suspense.

You let out a moan as his fingers moved in circular motions until they reached the entrance. You bit his neck when you felt one finger enter you, pumping slowly until his middle finger joined in. He started to pump faster, your insides tightening with each movement, “That’s only two fingers.” He whispered into your ear, licking your earlobe. “Will I add another?” You nodded eagerly, his eyes darkening, “Beg.” He demanded causing you to moan at how sexy he sounded.

“P-Please Derek,” You bit your bottom lip, trying to sustain the scream that was trying to escape when he entered the third finger. “Scream for me, princess.” He hissed in your ear, he stepped closer to you and you felt his bulge rub against your thigh. Derek started pumping faster, the veins in his arms popping out and you felt yourself coming to your high. “Cum for me, (Y/N).” You let out a scream as he surprised you with one more finger and you felt yourself coming to your release. You moaned as you came down from the high, and he slowly slipped his fingers out of part.

He looked you in the eye as he sucked on each finger individually. “I don’t want a relationship, but I do…” He started, placing his hands on your waist, “I do want to do this more.” He whispered, placing a sweet kiss on your lip.

You looked at him, amused, “You didn’t want to do this two months ago.” You teased which made him shrug, “Seeing you naked changed my mind.”

OUAT 6x10 Thoughts

I’m re~watching OUAT 6x10 and so far I’ve noticed two things.

1. In the scene where Emma blows out her birthday candle there is an older Asian woman in the background.

Now, the only Asian woman on this show so far has been Mulan.

Moreover, she has seemed to represent Regina a lot of the time, especially when it comes to her love life. Just like Regina, she chose to join Robin. After we saw her choose not to tell Aurora how she felt about her. She seems to be the only recurring character who hasn’t found love on this show yet at all.

Even more interestingly, she is almost in every shot of that birthday candle scene, when Regina can’t be there. Watching.

On top of that, she’s wearing a crown. Which tells me she is a princess or a queen. Hmm, I wonder how that happened, since Mulan wasn’t a royal originally.

I find that fascinating.

2. There are two times in this episode where an arrow is shot.

The first is when Regina is just seeming to get through to Emma. She looks just about ready to believe Regina. Until her parents shoot at Regina and the moment is over. Regina loses (what little ground she had with) Emma.

The second time is when Emma and Regina are holding hands, about to jump into the portal. And Robin sends an arrow flying towards them. This makes Emma lose Regina. She almost goes into trance. Or a dream. Kind of like Emma when the first arrow goes flying.

This is almost like some reverse cupid situation.

To me, it makes me think that for these respective individuals, Emma and Regina, the people lodging the arrows at them are what are keeping them apart. Or at least what those people stand for.

I think Regina wants a happy ending. And she can’t let go of the idea that she adopted ages ago, when she was a young girl. That it’s true love. And that she lost her shot at it when she lost Daniel. But Robin, he’s the person she feels she can be sure of. Because he is he’s her soulmate and he’s meant to love her no matter what. He’s her second chance.

But the sad part is she hides from him. She’s mostly reasonable around him. And all smiles or twinkling tears. She hides the real anger she’s capable of, the jealousy, the frustration and the fear. She hides her temper. The few times she hasn’t Robin has either pretty much called her crazy, looked at her funny(like he was seeing her for the first time and not in a good way) and not defended her when others tried to hurt her feelings. He also has never truly experienced the full force of her wrath. You can’t know a person until you know what makes them tick. What gets them pissed off. And until you’ve witnessed it in all its full glory.

For Emma, she has always wanted a family, home. Love and belonging. Acceptance. Instead she got abandonment and a shitty childhood. But now she’s found her parents. And so she feels she has a shot, a second chance, to reclaim what she lost.

But because of who her parents are and all that she’s been through I think she believes she has to be someone else in order to secure their love.

And it makes sense. The times when she has shown them her beliefs, they’ve shot her down. Told her she was crazy or seeing things. When she feared her own magic and it went out of control they rebuked her. She’s never truly told them any details about what it was like for her growing up without them. Or she has and they don’t understand her. If she hasn’t, I’m not even sure they’d want to know.

It’s clear in how they welcomed Neal with open arms and encouraged Emma to take him back in the interest of Henry. Neal, the man who had her go to jail for a year for a crime she didn’t commit. Who left her alone and pregnant in jail.

They seem to see what they want to see. The girl they wish they had raised her to be instead of the one her hard life made her.

I think Emma and Regina want to be happy. But they believe they have to conform to certain rules in order to get there. One of which involves, being who you think the people you want to love and accept you want you to be instead of who you are.

It’s funny because they have no problem showing each other who they truly are.

The mirror episode is such a good example of that. They were their very own angry, frustrated selves. Because they had reason to be angry and frustrated. There was no fear of judgment. It was clear in their reactions to each other that they know each other and are used to each other’s personalities. And fine with them.

But in that same episode they weren’t afraid to show each other their respective fears and joys. Emma her fear of dying. And Regina her fear of having to raise Henry alone as a result of that. And they were there for each other, cheering each other up. And basically slapping each other on the back for doing a good job with Henry. It’s so great because sometimes when these two interact, honesty, showing each other who they are, is almost as easy as breathing. And then other times…

Winnie walked out of the bathroom and back to the table to see her favourite cake with candles on it, “Happy birthday Beauty! This is the day my beautiful Winnie Upton was brought into this world. I love you so much Winnie” Lincoln declared. Winnie was in tears, no one had cared about her birthday since her mum died and here was this wonderful man sitting her proclaiming how much he loved her and how valuable she was to him. 

“I love you too my Beast,” Winnie said before blowing out the candles. She didn’t have anything to wish for her life was great. She had a man who she loved and he loved her back and a successful career, her life was shaping up to be the life she used to dream about.

Reverse a Spell cast Against You

You will need:

  • Black candle
  • White paraffin, melted
  • Boline

Place the black candle in front of you and light it. Say: easily lit, you burn as I allow, but I have the power to disavow. Blow out the candle.

Dip the candle from the bottom into the white paraffin, you may dip it as far as two thirds of its length, but leave some of the black portion near the wick untouched. Dip the candle three times. Notice how each time you dip it, it gets whiter. Allow this to dry.

Light the candle again and allow it to burn the black portion remaining. As the flame reaches the part where the white paraffin begins, say: your will remains and though it is black, it has been transformed, it cannot attack. Allow the candle to burn down into the white paraffin area, and then snuff it out. Discard the unused portion at a crossroads, over your shoulder, without looking back.

This spell can be performed any time you know or suspect someone has put a spell on you, or when you seem to having a string of bad luck and you can’t explain why.
