10 Quick Ways To Tell a Sugar from Salt/Fake Daddy
  1.  A real SD’s first message to you will be 500+ characters and/or written in a letter format. A fake / salt daddy will not take the time to write you a real response showing that he’s read your profile. A real SD will because he knows how many fake SB’s there are in the bowl. A real SB will show you he is serious by taking the time to initiate a real conversation prior to meeting up.
  2. A salt daddy will string you along… he’ll pull out every excuse, every insult, and every card in the book to avoid paying you. He may imply or flat out call you a gold digger, guilt you for taking his money, etc. Don’t fall for it, and don’t waste your time.
  3. If his income is less than $200k, he a salt daddy, okay? Like most SB’s you are looking for a daddy who can provide an allowance of some sort. You won’t find one with a man who brings in less than $200k before taxes. ESPECIALLY not one with a man who has a net worth less than $750k.
  4. Salt Daddies ask for nudes right off the bat. Real SD’s pride themselves on being generous, gentlemanly benefactors. Real SD’s will not look to disrespect you in such a way if they truly value your time, company, and what you may add to their lives.
  5. Salt Daddies tend to try lowball you into agreeing to something ridiculous like $150 per meet. Real SD’s have the financial means to support you in whatever way they claim to be able to. In my world, less than $400 per meet is laughable.
  6. Salt Daddies may try to emotionally manipulate you, claiming they like you so much, you’re their dream woman, etc. etc. to take advantage of you and your valuable time. Don’t fall for it, just send them a thank you message for a nice date and move on.
  7. Real SD’s know how to plan a dinner, at the most basic. Real SD’s love spoiling their sugar babies and will usually spare no expense when it comes to dinner, brunch, or other meals. Choice and price range of a restaurant is HUGELY indicative of what kind of daddy a man is/will be.
  8. Real SD’s will compensate you by the second date. I’m not going to lie to you, you will not always be compensated for the first date. I’ve met plenty of REAL SD’s who do not compensate for a meet and greet– and understandably so. But if you’ve gone on a second date, and they have not compensated you by then, MOVE ON. Real SD’s are usually happy to or will bring a little gift to show they are legit. 
  9. Salt Daddies will send requests to view private photos without even sending so much as a message to introduce themselves. I always ignore, ignore, ignore photo viewing requests if I have not had any adequate conversation with a POT.
  10. Salt Daddies will ask for or mention explicit sexual favors right off the bat, within the first couple of messages. A real SD will mention ‘intimacy’ and wanting to eventually take the relationship to the next step, but they won’t devalue you so much as to speak to you in such a vulgar way. Be suspicious and block men who are 

let’s just talk for a moment here. 

I’m gonna say itLena Luthor loves Kara Danvers. loves her. and there are soooo many reasons why. 

first, let’s just list the reasons off the bat, then I’ll explain my reasonings. 

  • donuts
  • lip bites/glances/looks
  • the thirst factor
  • food dates
  • meeting Alex
  • gala
  • flowers
  • her heroics
  • “I’ve never stood behind a man” 
  • “I’m here for you, if you still want that”
  • “I miss you”
  • “I didn’t see your name on the by line”/ “unquit”
  • “I trust you”/Catco
  • heart emoji

ok let’s get started:

first, the doughnuts.

 lena is known for eating healthy. she drinks kombucha. she gets kara to probably eat vegetables. y’know the regular. probably is on a no carb diet. we never see her eating anything bad, because she’s probably been preened all her life to be picture perfect and eat only what’s good for you. but here comes her bff, her gal pal kara danvers, traipsing in with a bag of doughnuts. this happened a couple times, actually. lena indulged in a doughnut for kara. 

the lip bites, holy fuck. I’m going to tie this in with the glances too. because holy mother of god. 

lena is always checking kara out, biting her lip (most likely surprising moans bc hot damn she’s in love with this woman) and the looks. the looks of. pure. unadulterated. love. 

I mean you cannot tell me the look on lena’s face is anything but love? come on. even a blind man could tell. 

next, lena’s thirst factor. 

girl, she is always, always, (almost) always seen with a drink when around kara! 

exhibit A: their first meeting, lena has to pause and get herself a damn glass of water

exhibit B: granted, yes they’re at a restaurant, but lena’s got an almost empty glass, bc hot damnvers kara is something. (lets take in account that kara’s glass is empty)

exhibit C: in the most recent episode 3.01, lena is yet again, shown pouring herself some water bc girl is thirsty af 

exhibit D: oh looky here, Lena’s getting a drink. I am pretty sure Kara just makes her speechless and she needs water to talk

exhibit E: y’all see where I’m going with this, right?

their brunch/lunch/dinner/kombucha dates

lena always seems to have a food date with kara. always. I mean it’s one thing to have one on occasion but they’re known to have these? and I know damn well that kara isn’t always the one to initiate them. lena is probably the one to invite her because she’s rich and offers to feed kara’s immense appetite. 

what about the first time lena was introduced to Alex properly?

this. this is the face of jealousy. she shows up unannounced at kara’s apartment (where’d she even get kara’s address?) and sees this beautiful woman in kara’s apartment and she’s jealous af, and Alex doesn’t let on anything. doesn’t, for a split second, let on that she’s kara’s sister, because I’m pretty sure she knew what Lena’s thoughts were. she knew for a flash of a second, lena was actually jealous, but ew gross, kara is her sister, and that’s when kara finally speaks up, and Lena’s face softens, and she remembers what she actually came over for… 

the gala

she invites, not only kara and supergirl to the gala, but kara’s man friend, mike of the interns, because she doesn’t care. if kara’s friends with this person, she figures she can trust this person too, who tf cares if you met them five seconds ago and could’ve easily told him “It’s an elite party, and I’m inviting kara as my plus one, sorry” but no, she extends an invitation to mike of the interns…

the flowers: plumerias

these are plumerias, for anyone who hasn’t seen them before. they come in all different colors, ranging from blues, pinks, purples, melon, peach, yellow and white. they are an exotic flower, and a bit hard to come by. they have to be imported, usually from Hawaii. they have a few different meanings, but in Chinese, they symbolize love. they mean “I love you” and “you are special” 

and kara’s office, just so happens to be overflown with flowers, most likely plumerias because she mentioned they remind her of her mother, and lena would totally import those flowers and fill her office as a thank you to saving her just because she loves kara. and you know damn well she knows what those flowers mean. she’s smart, we’ll touch on this fact later.

lena being a hero

she is.. its a fact. whether it’s supergirl or kara danvers’s hero, national city’s hero, or anyone’s hero, lena is a hero. 

lena chooses kara and being the hero and will always choose kara and being the hero. when it came to saving jack or saving supergirl, she chose kara over her ex-lover. and we can probably assume that because a) lena is young and b) lena is a luthor, jack was probably her only real relationship. she did love him, you could tell with the emotion from the kiss and even the relaxed-ness of her date with him, they were friends. and she did miss is company, though she wouldn’t date him again. yet then it comes to kara, as supergirl, and she has to choose whether to save jack or end his life to save national city’s hero. she chooses to let jack go, therefore ultimately killing him so she can save kara. she also saves kara’s man child boyfriend from the evil daxamite guard. by shooting him with an alien gun. and she and Winn made whatever that thing was under the table at the gala and it stopped those evildoers from attacking supergirl, and the kicker, my favorite, saving the whole population of national city, not once, but fucking twice.

in s2e8 lena, after finding out her mother is the ringleader of CADMUS, and kara ultimately yells at her and accuses her of knowing what her mother did, etc, still saves national city. she undermines her mother, weasels her way onto her mother’s good side, double-crosses her and makes the medusa virus inert, therefore saving national city’s population of aliens when the only friend she had hated her for the moment. she could’ve easily just given in and killed all the aliens, but she didn’t. she chose to save them because she loves kara and her pro-alien bleeding heart views, even when they sometimes disagree and fight. 

and then again in s2e22, lena, and with the help of Lillian, build a device to rid the planet of the daxamites invading earth. a device that sends out lead into the atmosphere. and she knows what it’ll do. she knows that it’s going to send Mon-el away, and you know she was lowkey happy about that, but she knows it’ll put kara through hell, yet she let’s kara make the ultimate decision to choose whether to go on with it, and kara does. supergirl tells them to use the device. and lena yet again, saves everyone, all because she loves kara and kara is her hero.

and let’s not forget the best time lena was a hero and shot Corbin, therefore saving none other than Special Agent Alex Danvers with the DEO… hot damn, she’s my hero.

lena’s never stood behind a man

*eh hem* I’ll just leave these here. two examples of lena never standing behind a man, because she’s independent and fierce, but Kara is always protecting her and she lets kara/supergirl. we know damn well lena can hold her own, she is a Luthor after all, but she lets kara take the forefront and she stands behind her with grace and poise and love and admiration. 

“I’m here for you, if you still want that”

Lena knows the hell kara is going through. she knows that kara lost her man child thing of a boyfriend she liked for five days. and kara is going through hell. and yet, she’s still cautious. I think this is one of the most significant things ever and we’re going to dissect for a second here. in the second image: kara tells lena “I’m right here” letting lena know she can talk to her and she wants her to, she’s almost willing her to. 

yet in the top image, lena adds the “if you still want that”. she is letting kara know a few things here. a) that she feels guilty over the lead being released in the atmosphere b) she doesn’t want to use kara, because she’s not a talker herself. her walls are always built up so sturdy until kara breaks them down with her super strength and c) she doesn’t want to lose kara. she’s letting her know she’s there if kara wants her because its kara’s choice. she’s not going to force kara into being her friend just because kara is the only friend she has in national city and she will be ready to help kara any way she needs when the time comes. 

“I miss you” 

this also follows with the “if you still want that” because she’s telling kara that she’s being ignored, but she’s not pushing. she knows that kara is distancing herself. but she still lets kara know in a subtle way that she’s still here, she still loves her and that she truly misses her best friend. she just misses her. she misses Kara Danvers, the girl she’s falling in love with more and more as each day passes.

“I didn’t see your name on the by line”/”unquit”

now, first off, kara does anything lena suggests. Lena suggests, she become a reporter and guess who becomes one? Kara. lena tells her in such an unprofessional manner to “unquit” her job. and according to my laptop, unquit isn’t even a word, yet it came out of poised, perfect, prestined Lena Luthor’s mouth. “unquit” 

so kara unquits, and lena sends a heart emoji

a red heart emoji. man, do I have some words about this. Lena, you little lesbian in love with your bestie, damn. lena could’ve easily replied back with a “okay” or “sounds great” or even a “see you tomorrow!” or if we’re going the emoji route: a smiley face, a thumbs up, or fuck idk, a yellow heart? because lena is very, very, very smart. and we all know she knows the meanings that colors represent. like how yellow means happiness, friendship, sunshine, and energy, yet miss luthor sent kara a red heart. red meaning love, passion, heat. you can’t tell me she doesn’t know what they meant. she could’ve replied with so many different ways, yet she chooses a red heart.

and lets not forget the last points: lena buys fricken catco–– “I trust you”

lena “I bought your job for you and I have no fucking idea how to run catco” luthor bought a multimillion dollar corporation so a sexist bottle of cheap cologne couldn’t and she has literally no idea how to run the company, yet she’s enlisting and trusting her best friend and the woman she likes to run it with her. she bought kara a company. because kara asked and she 

lena just dropped everything, and potentially could ruin her career for this woman, and she did it all out of love. 

she even admits to not even knowing how to run the place! yet, just because kara asked, she did it. kara says “jump” and lena asks “how high”. the girl will do anything for the woman she loves. 


anyway, so those are my thoughts and reasonings as to why I believe lena is in love with kara. you can agree or disagree, leave your opinions if you like, but if you’re anti-supercorp please do not leave your opinion. 


*please note: gifs and pictures are NOT mine and I will not take credit for them, I simply borrowed them from the internet. also I stg if the gifs don’t load I will cry, I don’t know if they actually will, let’s hope.

edit: none of the gifs loaded I hate everything… oh fucking well, you get my point and y’all probably know what each gif is a scene of anyway… fml

hi your andriel 'I hate Neil Josten and his pretty face' headcanon is beautiful and pure and wholesome and has healed my soul and i was hoping you'd be open to expanding on Neil's 'revenge' calling out Andrew and being dorky in the process?

Hi! Sorry for the late reply! Thank you so much and, sure, here you go!

Rigatoni & Sunday Sauce 

On Monday, I had a little time to get a bit of cooking done, and I decided that I wanted it to be a labor of love. I’ve posted my Sunday Sauce recipe before, but I will post it once again. I served it over some rigatoni, and this made for a great dinner, and amazing leftovers. I do apologize for not posting as frequently, but I have been going through a bit of a rough patch, so please keep me in your good thoughts! I’ll be back posting soon. 

Ingredients for Sunday Sauce

2 ½ cans of whole, peeled San Marzano tomatoes

1 large yellow onion, diced

1 lb ground beef

½ lb ground turkey

½ lb ground sirloin

1 lb Italian sausage, removed from casing

4 cloves garlic, minced

¾ cup red wine

Freshly minced parsley and basil

Olive oil

Red pepper flakes

Salt and pepper to taste

Directions for Sunday Sauce

In a food processor, pulse the tomatoes until they are completely broken down, with few chunks

In a large pot, heat a few tbsp of olive oil over medium heat.

Add in the ground meat and cook until browned. Season with salt and pepper.

Once all of the ground meat has browned, remove from the pot and set aside.

Repeat the above steps with the Italian sausage and set aside.

Add in the onion and cook for a few minutes until it begins to develop color, about 5 minutes. If needed, add a tbsp of oil into the pot so that the onions do not scorch.

Add in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.

Before adding the meat, deglaze the pan with the red wine, being sure to scrape the fond (brown bits) from the bottom, if any.

Add in the meat and cook for 2 minutes.

Add in the tomatoes, season generously with salt and pepper and red pepper flakes.

Bring the sauce to a boil and let boil for 3 minutes.

Reduce the heat to a low simmer and partially cover with a lid and let simmer for 3.5 hours, stirring once every 25 minutes being sure to scrape the bottom.

When close to finished, season with salt and pepper if needed and add in fresh basil and parsley. Dried oregano would also be a nice touch here.

Enjoy!
