NARU-UZUMAKI’S 9.5k / 5 YEAR ANNIVERSARY APPRECIATION POST
I’m really emotional right now even thinking about writing this so hopefully this all makes sense as I post this. Where do I even begin? Like holy shittebayo guys — five years ( I hit that on 6/30 ) and 9.5K followers later, I’m here and hitting this huge milestone with each and every one of you! I’m going to tell you all right now that there are no amount of words that can even begin to express how grateful I am to each one of your beautiful faces. The immense gratitude I have is unfathomable, and it is because of YOU guys that this blog stays alive! Even through the worst of times, I have seen this fandom and many others come together and be a FAMILY and support one another through its toughest of times. From the ones that have just followed me to the ones that have followed me from the very first day, I can’t even begin to express how special you are and how much each of you have impacted my life. This post is to say two words — THANK YOU! Thank you all for sticking with me through the times where I was at my most vulnerable, where I was at my lowest, when I felt like giving up and you all were my pillar! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
The last five years have been some of my worst years and some of my best and you guys have supported me through it all. I’ll never forget when my dad passed away just months after I started this blog so tragically and you all came and gave me such positive words and helped me through such a depressing and horrible time, when I felt like giving up but you all helped me to never give up, and when I made the decision to go back to school and you guys gave me the encouragement to keep going and now, I’m working towards being a full on EMT / Paramedic so I can give back the positivity you all have given me back to someone in need.
I wish I could add all of you that I follow on this post ( maybe Tumblr will let us one day lmao ! ) because all of you hold a very special place in my heart, you all really do. These particular people that I’m about to mention have supported me no matter what’s happened, have always been here for me despite hardship and are people that are absolute gems because of their genuinety. They are just blogs that I admire from afar too — but I want everyone to remember that you are all amazing in your own ways.
I just had a stray thought about this line today and it just made me laugh because I just realized that swimming for Garnet isn’t actually swimming? She just walks along the bottom of things: pools, the ocean, volcanoes, etc. and calls it swimming. So I ended up drawing this and going overboard bc I wanted to play with colors uvu;;
But it’s still a good way to kick off the first day of Spring Break at least!
Now I want to see this as goody two shoes!Castiel getting really overwhelmed by hearing punk!dean praising him/confessing his love as they have sex for the first time. But of course, Dean being the fucker he is, has to go and ruin the moment by making fun of Cas. And Cas wants to be mad at him for being such an ass, but he also realizes that it’s just the dean he fell for and he wouldn’t have it any other way.
What they wanted: Kai, #6 “I just wanna kiss you right now.”, #9 “I wanna know what it feels like to be yours.”, #24 “I just had sex, and it felt so good.”
Warning: virgin Kai
Kai watched (y/n) from his spot on her bed, she was the only one who’s put up with his bullshit since the beginning. Kai was glad to have someone like her in his life as a friend but he wanted her to become more then just a friend. He wanted her as his other half, after all he did love the young women. Who couldn’t with her (e/c) eyes that shined with passion whenever she did something she likes or her (long/short) (h/c) hair that blew into her face whenever they went driving late at night. If only he could express his feelings toward her, maybe he wouldn’t have to see her go on dates with other men.
(Y/n) who was checking herself out in her full body mirror ran her hands over her midnight black cocktail dress that hugged her body hadn’t even noticed the looks from her friend who was seated on her bed gave her. With her vampire hearing she could hear Kai softly whisper, “I wanna know what it feels like to be yours.”
(Y/n) turned her attention away from the mirror and faced kai who was glancing down into his lap playing with the teddy bear be had gotten her on her 18th birthday. “What do you mean?” She questioned confused, she never pegged Kai as the type to say something like that toward her. Kai stood up with a sigh and walked up toward the (s/c) skinned women placing one of his hands on her shoulders he used his other hand to hold her face in his larger palm, rubbing his thumb across her bottom lip he said, “I just wanna kiss you so badly right now.” (Y/n) could see the love and lust in his eyes, a soft sigh exited from out of her (plumped/flat/normal) lips as she whispered a response to him.
“Then why don’t you.”
Kai smiled softly and leant down his lips connecting with hers, it felt different from all the other guys she’s kissed at the end of her dates. Kai hand that was on her shoulder slipped down toward her waist as he lead her toward the bed as soon as the back of her knees contacted to the mattress she fell down and so did Kai. Making sure not to put to much of his weight on her he spoke again looking into her (e/c) eyes this time. “I’ve never done this before.”
(Y/n) smiled up at Kai, he was a virgin and she was gonna be his first. Grabbing Kai hand into hers she placed gentle kisses against his finger tips as soft moans exited from out of his lips. “Don’t worry I’ll teach you.”
After hours of love making with Kai (y/n) hadn’t even cared that she missed her date with some dude she had met out shopping all she cared about was Kai who lays beside her body in her bed his naked body cuddle close to hers and hers was to his.
Kai lifted his head up from (y/n) breast and placed a small kiss where her none beating heart was. After realizing what had just happened a few hours ago, kai’s laughter filled the room.
“What’s so funny?” (Y/n) asked her hands playing with strands of Kai’s hair. Kai looked up at her and gave her a goofy smile, “I just had sex, and it felt so good.”
[A/N: I enjoyed making this for you @sparklyhoe and it was fun writing this one for you so thank you for the awesome request.)
“I don’t see why you couldn’t wear a bikini! It’s a pool party, after all.” Y/F/N teased, reaching over and pinching your side.
“In my defense, I’m wearing bikini bottoms! It’s just that I have my shirt on top! And I’m not even planning to swim, so why bother wearing a full set?” You smiled, waving to another friend when they passed by you.
“Your shirt? Isn’t that Harry’s shirt?” Y/F/N raised an eyebrow, reaching over and poking at the embroidered Styles sitting on the the left breast pocket.
“My shirt, Harry’s shirt - What’s the difference?” You grinned, tugging the shirt down a little before fixing yourself a drink.
“Mhm.. I’m pretty sure Harry pops a boner every time he sees you walk around the house wearing nothing but one of his shirts and a pair of panties..” Y/F/N trailed off, peeking past your shoulder and letting out a snort. “You haven’t even been out here for a proper minute and you’ve already caught Harry’s attention.”
You turned slightly to look behind you, a smile growing on your face when, sure enough, you saw Harry staring right at you - or, your bum - before he returned a cheeky grin. He would never admit it, but he really loved it when you wore his shirts. The way you would roll up the sleeves and leave a couple buttons undone definitely did something to him.
The truth was, you were planning to wear a bikini, but you and Harry had gotten a little more than frisky yesterday and.. Well, you didn’t want anyone pointing out the fact that there were hickeys scattered everywhere. You had managed to cover up the ones on your neck with concealer, but you weren’t going to waste time and conceal the ones on your hips or your chest! Throwing a shirt on and not swimming was the easiest way out!
“Miss Y/L/N.” You giggled when you felt Harry wrap his arms around you from behind, his chin propped on your shoulder.
“Mr Styles.” Harry pressed a kiss to your cheek as he watched you dunk a couple ice cubes into your cup.
“Are yeh not swimming?”
“No - I don’t want Y/F/N to tease me about all the hickeys you gave me.” You snorted, taking a sip of your drink. “And you shouldn’t be swimming, either! I’m surprised no one’s pointed out the marks on your neck.”
“Oh, please. Your little nibbles would never create a mark of any kind.” Harry teased, laughing when you pouted at him and pushed at his chest. “Don’ worry, love. No one’s going to say anything cos we’re great at covering things up. I like your shirt, by the way.” He hummed, laughing when you swatted his wandering hands away. “Wha’? I was jus’ tryna admire your bikini bottoms.”
“Nice try, mister. You did plenty of touching earlier.” You scolded playfully, Harry taking his bottom lip in between his teeth at the thought of what had happened in the bedroom yesterday night.
“Hey, you guys? Can I give you a quick word of advice?” You and Harry both turned as Y/F/N spoke up again, a mischievous smirk plastered on her face.
“Wha’s tha’, smartass?” Harry raised an eyebrow, Y/F/N’s fingers drumming against the side of her cup as she swallowed the rest of her iced tea.
“Trust me, you did a great job - phenomenal, even - on covering up the hickeys. Kudos to you, Y/N!” Your eyes widened - How the hell did Y/F/N know- “But, uh, next time? You might want to do something about the scratches down Harry’s back.”
Story behind the photo: I knew from the start that I wanted to do a time-lapse of the Milky Way at night. I hiked to this spot called Beacon Heights in the afternoon to scout the area. I choose an ideal spot to shoot at night and remembered the composition I would most probably be using for the evening. Decided to do this as it’s easier to do all this during the day.
Beacon Heights is merely 0.2 miles though the forest from the start of the trail to the top of the overlook with this view which isn’t long at all. That’s what I thought anyway during the day. I arrived again in the evening right after sunset while there was still a scant amount of light; there were still about 3 cars parked at the start of the trail so I knew there were people up there. Arrived at the top without issue and admired the view and started shooting my non time-lapse shots first. Little by little, the groups of people left and I was all alone.
The overlook was mainly rocks with a drop off and the view in front of that. Behind you is the thick tree line which I just hiked through. It was peaceful but honestly creepy at the same time, being so close to the dense trees and shrubs in complete darkness. I shined my flashlight from time to time at the trees to make sure nothing snuck up on me. I decided to play upbeat music on my phone to change the mood and to maybe ward off any curious animals in the area. It was absolutely breathtaking watching the Milky Way emerge out of the fading post sunset horizon light; seeing it slowly move horizontally across the sky little tiny bits at a time. The evening breeze was crisply cool, all you could hear was the critters of the forest at night, and the stars were so blindingly bright once your eyes adjusted to the lack of light.
The time-lapse was already going on for a while and I was lying down on the ground beside my camera setup and just enjoying the moment. The evening breeze changed direction and the wind blew from the trees towards me heading to the view I was staring at and then I smelled it, a really strong odor very similar to how a wet dog smells. What I immediately thought of was, oh god, the only big animals I’m aware of in this area would be deer and bear. I’ve been near deer before and they don’t smell like that, leaving the other unpleasant option a possibility.
This made me literally jump up, turn on my two flashlights and move as far away back from the trees as I could.
My heart was pounding and I was really nervous. Blasted the music even louder and checked the tree line for anything. Decided to stay for just a few more exposures to make it worthwhile but I could not relax anymore. When the last photo was taken at 10:10pm I called it quits and decided that was enough shooting for the night. Packed up all my stuff, tied a flashlight on my left wrist so it would be dangling and pointing at the ground, held another flashlight in my left hand as my sweeper light, held the tripod on the right as my improvised weapon, and put my phone in my pocket blasting music on maximum volume which just so happened to be the soundtrack of Guardians of the Galaxy. I thought to myself on how else I could make my presence more known; why of course, let me just “sing” along to the playing music which was more like me nervously yelling the lyrics and hiking down as fast as I could through the eerily dark path through the forest. (The specific song playing was I’m not In Love by 10cc, so imagine someone lit by flashlights enveloped by the dark in the forest trail yelling it out loud like a crazy person) 0.2 miles never felt so long in my life before, I can tell you that. When I reached the clearing past the trees at the bottom I just ran to my car and I’ve never been happier to be out of the hiking trails before. The things you do to take these photos…
