On Maggie Sawyer and snapbacks

It always struck me how Maggie says she lived with “an aunt” for three years rather than “my aunt”. Maggie’s aunt took her in because yes, kicking her out was a harsh move on her parents’ part, and yes, no child should have to live on the street, and Maggie’s always been a good girl even if she is…that way. But will she put up with that nonsense in her house? Hell no.

So their relationship is very conditional. Her aunt takes care of her, cooks her favourite meals when she misses home, tends to her grazes when she gets beat up at school. She loves her. But she doesn’t accept her. Every night she prays for her, every other week she asks if Maggie’s met any nice boys at soccer, and when Maggie wears baseball caps at the table, she tugs them off her head and groans, “Ay, mija, te ves como un chico”.

But Maggie’s desperate, and she’s grateful, so she toes the line, studying every night until she falls asleep at the kitchen table. She gets a partial scholarship to college, gets in early at 17, and it’s there that she meets the first openly queer people she’s ever seen in her life. The first time a girl kisses her, in the dark at a movie, she cries because this is wrong, I’m wrong, yet she’s never felt anything come so naturally to her, and her heart flutters without permission, and when Holly’s thumb grazes her cheek, something inside her finally unclenches its fists.

She starts sleeping over in Holly’s dorm and, naturally, starts borrowing her clothes. She’s never had the freedom to experiment with her style, living on cousins’ hand me downs and already walking Blue Springs with a target on her back. At first she only wears Holly’s red flannel to bed - never out - because what if somebody hurts her again, what if this time she doesn’t make it out alive. And while Maggie thinks Holly looks cute as hell with that shirt tied around her waist, a lifetime of racism tells her only pretty blonde white girls can pull off that look anyway, that she could never rock it even if she tried.

But eventually, Maggie gets the courage to wear it to thanksgiving dinner at the campus LGBT centre, clenching Holly’s hand the whole way there. Soon after, Holly catches her toying with an old hat in her room and buys Maggie her first snapback for Christmas, complete with a National City Giants logo in honour of the city she wants to work in someday. It takes a while for Maggie to get used to wearing it, but once she does, slipping it over her head feels as warm and empowering and terrifying as Holly holding her hand.

Years later, Alex comes across an old hiking photo of Maggie and another friend, and laughs “Oh my God.”

Maggie groans, blushes. “Give me a break, it was college.”

“No, it’s adorable. You were such a cute baby gay.”

And Maggie can’t help but smile a little. Because yeah, she’s outgrown the snapbacks and found better fitting flannels, but she’ll never forget those years experimenting with how she presented herself, figuring out who she was. How throwing on a snapback made her feel brave on days she felt she didn’t have the strength to be brave. How she’d notice a girl in similar clothes on campus and give her a knowing smile that said ‘I see you’.

“Yeah,” she chuckles, smiling down on the photo in Alex’s hands, feeling a swell of pride for her younger self as intense as pain. “Yeah, I guess I was.”

Sex Kitten tea

I came up w this idea the other day when I bought some cat nip. But basically it’s a sexy time tea

-½ Tbsp mint (I used a mint blend of peppermint and spearmint)
-1 tsp Catnip
-1 tsp lemongrass

Steep for three minutes or more. I put in some honey in the shape of a heart and stirred clockwise. No kidding, my husband tried to get frisky w me after drinking the tea. I even made a joke about with him after our kid barged in before anything could happen.

  • Showing off to the other members because look at the photography pictures, and doesn’t {y/n} look amazing?
  • The other members not really knowing what to say because JB will get annoyed if they agree and say you look pretty, but what else are they supposed to say? 
  • A lot of inside jokes
  • The others are going to hate being around you two sometimes
  • Because it’s like you live in your own little world
  • Sometimes it will really seem that way when JB is staring at you as though there’s nothing else in the room
  • “Jaebum! for gods sake! I’ve been trying to get your attention for ten minutes!” 
  • Early mornings is that you can see him before he goes off to work
  • Him having a busy schedule but always making time for you 
  • Him cooking you dinner because it makes him feel better for working so often 
  • He also likes to have the sense of normality back in his life because being an idol can get too much sometimes. 
  • Teasing you 
  • Because he thinks it’s funny when you get annoyed at him
  • or when you blush
  • But both are good, really.

  • He tries to get annoyed at you, but that lasts about a whole two seconds until you walk into the room wearing nothing but his shirt ad underwear
  • This can sometimes lead to you getting lucky
  • But like, JB just loves cuddles
  • So expect for hi to be all over you when you’re in bed
  • In the sense that he’ll literally give you the biggest bear hugs to send you off to sleep
  • Him taking you out at night
  • Because there isn’t much time in the day
  • Sometimes he’ll to take you to fancy ass restaurants 
  • But other times he might just drive you around in his car and take you to small places that will one day mean a lot more
  • Him being happier when he’s around you 

“plus size clothes cost more bc it makes more fabric to make!!!” then why the fuck isn’t a size 2 more expensive than a 0? why isn’t a 6 way more expensive then a size 2??????

also why the fuck do shorts in target cost the same as jeans or other pants in target??? same with crop tops?? i bought a crop top for 20 bucks the other day that shit literally has half the fabric of a regular shirt ya’ll can fuck off

a pretty good bad idea (1/?)

pairing: Trini/Kimberly (Power Rangers

words: 2097

summary: With great power comes unexpected and awkward side effects. Also: kissing lessons. (Isn’t that how the saying goes?)

a/n: Guess who saw Power Rangers and is predictable trash? Guess who loves all that trope-y cheesiness? Guess who doesn’t remember how to write, but is doing it anyways? Me me me. Anyways, I tried to bring the cheese, my friends, but I’m just not capable of writing poetry like ‘Are we Power Rangers or are we friends?’. Alas.

WARNING for @smallandsundry : there is KISSING in this fic. (Also, no bear rangers.) Please avert your eyes.

anonymous asked:

What's one of the carziest, but most fun, things you've ever done?

Ok, here’s the story of the first (and only) true prank I’ve ever pulled on anyone.


When I was 7, I really, really, really didn’t get along with my middle sister (she was 11). I hated her, actually. She played the Miss Perfect role when my parents were around and she was the greatest bitch ever to me when we were alone.
One day, we got into a fight that went so far that she threatened to throw my plushie out of a window (it was a big deal for me, I was a kid).

Of course, I told her I would tell the parents about this if she went all the way with her threat so she backed down. But I knew. I knew this lil bitch would have thrown my plushie away.

So of course, OF COURSE, I needed to get revenge.

So I waited for her to get out of her room and try to watch the French equivalent of American Idol and I went into her room.
What. could I. possibly. steal from her? Something valuable, but not too much, something she couldn’t live without though. Something no one would think I would steal.


I stole her mattress.

Now, I don’t know if you know about this, but I’m short. Really short. And at the time, I was even shorter. Super short.
And I weighted, what, 50lb tops? I was just a little shrimp.

Only fuelled by resentment and loathing towards my sister, I lifted her huge mattress. It weighted more than me. I didn’t care. I dragged it across the house until finally I got the idea to hide it in the basement, in a little room no one ever went to.

Innocent like an angel, I got back to my room and waited.

No more than 10 minutes later, I hear my sister scream “WHERE IS MY BED”, and then a few seconds later “ADRIEN”. Everything was going just as planned.

I got out of my room and innocently asked her “What is it, @?”
“My mattress is missing, and I know you’re responsible for this!”
“I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

Pissed off, she went to see my parents.
“ADRIEN STOLE MY MATTRESS!”
They laughed her off.
“I’M SERIOUS, MY BED IS MISSING AND HE’S THE ONE WHO DID IT!”

My father, completely exasperated because he was trying to focus on our American Idol show, finally decided to check her room.
Indeed, the bed was missing.
“See? Adrien took it!
- Oh, don’t be silly, @, look at him, he’s too little to lift that huge thing. Stop accusing him”

At the same moment, I was behind my dad, sticking out my tongue to my sister. She was losing her mind.

My dad went to get my mother so she could as well note that my sister’s mattress was missing.
“Maybe a thief really did steal it?
-Don’t be absurd, who would steal a mattress? Plus, this is the second floor. No one can get here anyway else than by the stairs.”

I was gloating. As my parents were debating of the supposed fate of the mattress, my sister desperately wanted to sleep and she knew I stole her mattress. She couldn’t do anything about it. Eventually, she ended up sleeping in a sleeping bag, on the floor of her room. I couldn’t be happier.

The day after that, my mother suggested we look in the house to find the mattress if it was still here.

But no one suspected me.

So, in the middle of the next night, I went down to the basement, lifted the mattress again and dragged it to our court, where there was a lot of building stuff. In a dark corner, I hid the mattress under a blue tarpaulin where we had put things under before.

They looked for the mattress for 3 days then gave up and bought a new one 3 other days later. My sister hated me more than ever. I was a tiny evil genius.


They found the mattress 4 months later, and it was full of mould. I was never suspected and my sister got grounded for not taking care of her things.

The One With the Baby Fever

Another one shot coming ‘atcha!! also, side note, I am like so in tune with Brie and Daniel’s baby stuff. Like I watch the youtube videos and stuff, and I’m just so excited for them. and I don’t even know them??

this was roughly 16 pages in my notebook? so  i’m pretty sure this is the longest thing I’ve ever wrote. and I wrote in a bit of Dean’s pov so be aware of that *finger guns*

Dean Ambrose x Reader

While meeting Brie Bella’s new baby, Dean starts to feel some type of way.

You needed coffee today. Normally you’re pretty cheery when you arrive at work but this morning you were snappy and your colleagues noticed. The girls have asked you to nip around the corner to the café and grab you all some liquid caffeine. You were more than happy to do it – anything to get out of the office today! You were getting tired of all the drama. In a way you knew that this will pass in time, you’d just have to stick through it. But logic was not the dominant force today. Today angst and bitterness were having a day out in the life of Y/N…
