I Hate to Admit It, But I Kinda Like You

Request: Hi you are a great writer! I feel Crowley should get just as much love as dean and sam do. I am a Crowley girl 110% and I was wondering if you could write something along the lines of Crowley getting news about a prophecy saying that there is a girl who is destined to be the queen of hell. So he is intimidated by that and wants to find her and kill her immediately but when he does eventually find her, he falls in love because in the prophecy’s “fine print” it says that they are soul mates also. (anon)

A/N: I was really struggling over this one shot… and then inspiration struck. I’ve been thinking a lot lately how even though I’m an adult, I feel like I’m actually finally hitting my teenager phase – listening to music that bugs the hell out of my parents, wearing earbuds at all times, feeling a little rebellious… that kind of thing. And yet… I actually really hate teenagers. Whenever I see them on the train going home from school, they’re the loudest, most rude, obnoxious, and dirty-mouthed humans I have ever seen. I’m sure you guys aren’t that type, but… yeah. I have a love-hate relationship with you 13-17 year-olds.

Oh, yeah… and this one shot kind of swerved away from the actual request. So if anyone wants a second part, just let me know. I’d be totally willing to write one.

Song: “Teenagers” and “Welcome to the Black Parade” by My Chemical Romance

Words: 3282

Writer: Castielle

Pairing: Crowley x Reader (ish)

Your name: submit What is this?

“I do not let prophecies rule me!” Crowley roared.

The Master of Prophecies looked nervous. The guards all took a step back. Crowley saw the fear in their eyes and reminded himself that while fear was a good weapon, overusing it wasn’t a good idea. He had to take this calmly.

“No prophecy can rule the King of Hell,” he repeated calmly. “Just because the prophecy states that a human girl is destined to be the Queen of Hell, doesn’t mean it’s going to happen. I am determined to be single and let no one else have any hold over you. Is that clear?“

“Very clear, Your Majesty,” the Master of Prophecies said, licking his lips. “Are you sure that you don’t want me to read any more of it to you, though? There are quite a few terms and conditions…”

“I don’t want to hear any more about this matter every again!” Crowley interrupted him. “Never. You hear?“

You should do it. Go there, Nerd Girl. Camp out there. Bring a hammock. It isn’t recommended that you sleep on the ground there.

Are you on soundcloud man? If so what's your handle? I'd be interested to see what kinda music you listen to

Sorry dude, no SoundCloud.  I still rock the cd’s and cassettes. But as far my musical preferences, mainly the stuff I grew up listening to - 70’s and 80’s punk and hardcore, new wave, hair metal, NWBHM, thrash. A lot 90’s indie rock and post-grunge alternative. I dig 90’s golden age of hip hop. I’m also into 70’s funk and disco, 60’s R&B, northern soul, 1st and 2nd wave ska/reggae and I listen to a lot of classic country and western, but only if I’m drunk. I basically listen to anything, as long as “it’s a trip, it’s got funky beat and I can bug out to it!” But in all honesty, I am a post-punk art fag, at heart. Some of my favorite bands - The Cure, The Pixies, R.E.M, Lords of the New Church, Joy Division, Devo and The Cars ( even though their technically a new wave band ).

My mobile app keeps bugging out. There’s audio of someone sucking dick and there’s a dog spazzing out on screen. Also it started scrolling sideways. Please send help.

If making fun of Bieber for having femme features was wrong when he was a kid, it’s still wrong now that he’s an adult.

Bieber is a goober and has done a lot of goober things, and it’s totally acceptable and understandable to dislike him.

But just because you don’t like him doesn’t make it okay to go after him for ‘looking like a girl’.

Something about that has always bugged the shit out of me.

Training - Oliver Wood

Originally posted by simplypotterheads

This was requested by anonymous (Alexis). This was the request:  Hi there! I was wondering if you could do a Oliver Wood one shot…… Where, Y/N is a new beater spends the day practicing Oliver (as friends) but feels somethings different. When shes walking back to her dorm her friend Jude ;) is all up in her face asking how it went and rly bugging the crap out of her. As she’s about to exit the field Oliver calls out that they should do it again some time…….. Thanks a bunch! A/N: Okay so anonymous (Alexis) asked me to change y/n to her oc’s name Alex and it also guest stars my oc Jude. So thats kinda her. Keep requesting (Also if you ever request anything for Jude, even to be in the back of the room or whatever, I will love you 1000000001ever)

“Alex!” Jude calls excitedly as she runs over to you. Her dark hair was sticking up in all directions and her pale face was flushed. She look ecstatic. Some people look up from their breakfasts to see what the commotion was. “You’ll never guess what happened.”

“Did Fred kiss you?” You ask smirking as she hops over the bench and slips a little in surprise.

“Hahaha.” She laughs sarcastically. “Guess again.”

“You jumped off the astronomy tower … and lived.” You say, making your eyes grow big for dramatic effect.

“That’s next week, and Lee has written my will just incase. But no. You’re on the team!”

You furrow your eyebrows. “What team?”

“Rons chess team.” She says sarcastically. “You’re a fill in for the quidditch team!”

“What?!” Now you were excited, you had always wanted to play on the team. “What position? What games? When does practice start? Wait, why am I on the team?”

“One or two games, practice is tomorrow, you’re going to be a Beater and it’s because those two got kicked off.” Jude nods towards Fred and George, who had just came down to eat.

“We didn’t get kicked off.” George says bitterly as he sits in between Lee and Jude.

“We’re just suspended for a few weeks.” Fred finishes as he sits on Jude’s other side.

“I will go as far as to admit that the fight was partially my fault, but I can fight my own battles.” Jude glares at Lee when he opens his mouth to defend the three of them. “Anyway I’ll be the other Beater, Katie Bell will be filling in for my Chaser position.”

“Wait, why can’t I be Chaser. I’ve never been a Beater before.” You complain to her.

“It’s not that hard, it’s like playing baseball in the air and instead of baseballs there’s flying bowling balls. Plus Katie could never be a Beater.” She shrugs and takes a bit of toast.

“What’s baseball?” You ask her and she groans.

“I can’t take this anymore. You freaking wizards.” She climbs over the bench and walks toward the doors. “Ask Oliver about training.” She calls to you.

On her way out she passed Oliver. “Hey Jude,” he greets.

“Shut up I can’t think!” She yells before muttering something about statistics.

Oliver shakes his head and takes an open seat next to you. “I have no idea what you did to her but if she’s that angry during the next game it’ll be a for sure win.”

“That could be arranged.” Lee promises.

“Did you give you the news?” Oliver asks as he shovels food onto his plate. You shift a little further from him. You and Oliver were pretty good friends, and back in your second year you had a huge crush on him. But that’s all it was, a crush. But it was Oliver’s last year at Hogwarts, and that feeling from second year was back in your chest, stronger than before.

“Yeah, but I don’t know how play Beater. She said there would be a training session though.” You lean in closer so you could hear him better.

“Yeah, right.” His ears started to grow pink. “I was thinking maybe after class today I’d meet you on the field and we’d get started.”

“Great,” you say as you give him a warm smile. “I’ll see you then.”

***

After around an hour you were pretty confident and ready to let the Bludgers out. Oliver had walked you through everything and then some. But things started to get weird between you two. Every time the two of you were close to each other or touched in a harmless way, your faces would heat up. Do I fancy Oliver? You asked yourself over and over again. Maybe years ago but not anymore. Unless I still do. Does he fancy me too? You glanced over at him fiddling with the box that the different balls. He quickly looked away from you and the back of his neck grew red. You smiled slightly to yourself, maybe you both fancied each other now.

Oliver moved behind you, guiding your hand. His grip tightened around your wrist and he pushed it forward, causing the bat to swing. Your face was quite red at that point when he said, “Just don’t be afraid of it. Your job is to hit it not to duck away.” He whispered into your ear.

“It’ll just hit someone else or come back for you.” He moves away to unlock the box. “I can’t have you falling out of the sky. Or anyone else on the team.” He finishes quickly. You move closer to him. “Are you ready?”

You nod and he unbuckles the Bludger causing it to spring out and fly into the sky. “Okay get ready here it comes! Try and aim it towards the left end of the field!”

You grip the bat as it flies towards you. With a quick swing the bat hits the Bludger with a loud crack and it flies to the left. “I did it!” You scream in celebration. You turn and hug Oliver, not really thinking about it. You pull away quickly and at that moment the Bludger comes back for you.

It caught you off guard and when you knocked it away you stumbled into Oliver and you both fell. “Oh god, I’m so sorry.” You try to get up but Oliver slips his hand behind your head and pulls you back down, pressing his lips to yours. He pushes you off though and jumps on the Bludger.

“I think that’s enough for today.” He tells you as he struggles to get it back in the box.

“Right.” You say, still in shock. “I’ll just go back to the castle.” You turn around and start to walk as Jude runs on the the field towards you. “Hey, what happened?” You ask, taking in her panicked look and the taller, thinner bat she had in her hand.

“I was teaching the boys how to play baseball in the courtyard and the baseball flew into McGonagall’s office window and now we’re all on the run.” She takes a deep breath to slow her breathing and looks at you. “How’d it go with Oliver?”

Your face grows warm again. “It was- it was fine.”

“Hmm, but seriously, how’d it go. You’re a horrible liar and I know something happened.” She points the bat at Oliver, who was still getting the Bludger in the box. “Did it hit him in the face again?”

“What? No, it’s just- listen, I don’t know what happened, I don’t really know how to describe it.”

“But something did happen?” She presses.

“Oh my god, no just drop it.” You beg as you walk off the field.

“Alex, wait!” Oliver runs to catch up with you. His face falls a little when he notices Jude. Jude saw that and rolled her eyes and crossed her arms. “Alex, I was thinking maybe we could do this again sometime. I think what we worked on at the very end might need a little more practice.”

Your smile grows and you have to bite the inside of your cheek to keep from going up and kissing him in front of Jude. “Yeah I’d like to.”

“Ohhhh,” Jude eyes grew wide when she realized what was going on. She starts to walk backwards. “Well, I’m just going to leave.” She winks before running and leaving the two of you alone.

“Well I guess I’m free for pract-,” he doesn’t waste any time to let you finish your sentence.

Vehicle Every Day Carry - Get Home Bag |

Vehicle Every Day Carry Items (VEDC)

July 13, 2011 By Creek 28 Comments

This is a guest post by JJ Johnson (JJSERE1). JJ is a former USAF Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape (SERE) Instructor and currently runs his own survival blog which can be seen here: http://www.realitysurvival.com.  He also has a YouTube Channel with several survival/self-reliance related videos which can be found here: http://www.YouTube.Com/user/RealitySurvival

Most people in America spend the majority of their time split between three places:  their home, their place of work and in their vehicle.  Numerous excellent articles have been written on what emergency gear and supplies to keep in your home and to a lesser extent at your workplace.  A lot of good material has also been written on Bug Out Bags (BOB) and Every Day Carry (EDC) items as well.  This post will focus on items related to vehicles and what items to keep in them with two primary areas of concern.  First, Vehicle Every Day Carry (VEDC) items. Second, items for your Get Home Bag (GHB).

External image

Most of us rely on our vehicles on a daily basis and would probably also need to rely on them in an emergency situation.  In any emergency or survival situation that does not involve the destruction or mandatory evacuation of your home, your first priority should probably be to get home.  Of course that is assuming you don’t need immediate medical attention.  Home isn’t only where you hang your hat, it’s also where all your stuff is.  Stuff or resources are the key to making it through tough times happy and healthy. So, with that in mind all of the items on this list are geared towards getting you home.

External image

Here is a list (and some of their possible uses, if its not self explanatory) of all of the items I recommend keeping in a vehicle all the time. In no particular order of importance.

  • Jumper cables
  • Two tow straps – Vehicle extraction.
  • Small bag of easy light charcoal – fire starter / signal fire.
  • 5 road flares – Emergency distress signal, fire starter.
  • Come along – Vehicle extraction.
  • Bobby Stick / Club – Self Defense, fire starter.
  • First aid kit – Medical, Fire starter.
  • 12 Volt Air Compressor – Refill a flat tire, Light, Signal.
  • Extra fuses – Vehicle repair.
  • Siphon pump – To transfer gasoline from one vehicle or gas can to your vehicle.
  • Hat
  • 2 – 40 ft sections of old climbing rope – Vehicle extraction, emergency repelling to assist another, etc.
  • 2 – carabineers, a figure eight and enough rope for an emergency swiss seat.  
  • Extra batteries – For GPS, Spotlight, etc.
  • Bottle of Excedrin – Medical, Energy boost.
  • Binoculars – For locating nearest civilization (if you travel in rural areas).
  • Gloves – Personal protection.
  • Extra 550 – Multi Use, Fire, Shelter, Improvising, etc.
  • Seat Belt Extractor /Cutter – To cut jammed or locked seat belts after an accident.
  • Cell phone charger
  • 120 Volt to 12 Volt Inverter – For powering a laptop or other potential communication device.
  • LED Spotlight – Distress signal, warn oncoming traffic of your presence at night, work light for vehicle repair.
  • Mag Lite – Distress signal, warn oncoming traffic of your presence at night, work light for vehicle repair, self defense.
  • Tire Repair Kit
  • Valve stem tool and spare valve stem cores
  • Roll of black tape – Multiple Use, vehicle electrical system repair, improvising.
  • Roll of duct tape – Multiple Use, temporarily stopping leaky hoses, improvising.
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Sun tan lotion – For long walks in sunny or desert environments, fire starter.
  • Insect repellent
  • Ice Scraper – Snow removal, improvised digging device, self defense.
  • 2 Gallon Gas Can – With Gas.
  • One gallon premixed water and antifreeze (Note: Don’t ever use anything that has contained antifreeze as a drinking water container.  Also don’t attempt to drink any fluid that contains antifreeze, even if its been boiled.  Antifreeze is poisonous.)
  • Entrenching tool (E-Tool) – Not seen in this picture, because I think it was left in a prairie dog field on my last trip to West Nebraska.
  • Tool Kit – Includes: Basic Socket which has Phillips and straight, metric and standard 3/8 sockets and wrenches, ¼  inch multi-bit driver, variety of ¼ bits, hex wrenches, needle nose pliers, adjustable wrench, spark plug sockets, wire cutters, 3/8 drive flex universal adapter, 6 inch extension, 3 inch extension and 3/8 ratchet.  Also added is a small hack saw, 2 pair of vise grip locking pliers, standard and metric deep well sockets, a leather man, a bigger adjustable wrench, a roll of electric wire, a roll of utility wire, a standard pair of pliers, a 2 pound hammer, another ratchet and a bag to carry it all.

Also not pictured here, that should be added for older vehicles is a few quarts of oil, and transmission fluid, an extra serpentine or V-belt(s) for your specific vehicle and any unique tools that are required to change it.  During fall and winter an extra sleeping bag or wool blanket would also be prudent.  If you drive a newer vehicle (within ten years old or so) that is well maintained, the likely hood of needing the spare oil and belts or hoses is pretty low as long as you keep up on your vehicle’s preventative maintenance.

 

GET HOME BAG

External image

I also recommend keeping a Get Home Bag (GHB) in your vehicle in case it breaks down beyond repair, gets stuck in a ditch or for whatever reason you just have to leave the vehicle and go on foot. 

This bag is smaller and lighter than a full 72 hour bag (BOB). I guess it’s more like a 24 hour bag.

 Its purpose is to contain just the items that may be needed to get home on foot, even if it’s a long hike.  Again in no particular order, here is a list of what I recommend for a Get Home Bag.

  • Small backpack
  • Emergency credit card – With at least a $3000.00 credit limit.
  • Prepaid calling card – With 60 minutes or so of time on it.
  • $100 cash – Pay for a ride, buy spare parts or food, water, etc.
  • Bright colored poncho – shelter from rain, signaling.
  • Old broke in tennis shoes – Better for long walks than dress shoes, boots, or high heels.
  • Thick wool socks – Change of socks so feet stay dry and avoid blisters.
  • Umbrella
  • 4 Bottles of Water
  • Emergency Water Filter Straw – Can be used with empty water bottles to re-stock on fresh water for the long walk.
  • 4 granola bars
  • Collapsible baton – Self Defense (Note: Check your local laws to ensure these are legal for carry).
  • Small handgun and ammo and holster (Note: Ensure you carry in accordance with local & state laws, be licensed if required.)
  • Combat field bandage – Medical, Fire Starter.
  • Triangle bandage / kravat – Multi use, medical, water filter (not purifier), dust filter for face, etc.
  • Toilet paper
  • Candle – Fire starter, Signal, Night travel (cut the bottom off of a water bottle and stick the candle through it to shield from the wind).
  • 6ft x 8 ft Tarp – Shelter, ground tarp for working on vehicle.
  • Cigarette Lighter
  • Magnesium Fire Starter / Fire Steel
  • Pitch Wood Club – Fire starter, Self Defense
  • Compass / Signal Mirror – Navigation, directional day time signaling (A couple flashes in a drivers eyes will get their attention – just don’t hold it on them as it could cause an accident).
  • Led flashlight – For night time travel and vehicle repair.
  • Emergency road flare – Emergency distress signal, fire starter.
  • Folding saw – Collecting fuel for an overnight fire if needed, removing debris from a road, etc.
  • Fixed blade knife – Multi use.
  • Handheld CB – Signaling and Communication
  • Handheld FRS / GMRS Radios – Signaling and Communication
  • Notepad and pens/pencil – Leaving directions, destination and contact information.
  • Road map – Finding ways around obstacles or detours.
  • Handheld GPS – Waypoints to home and friends houses or rally points preloaded.
  • Shemagh – Head cover, scarf, dust filter, water filter, Wet down put on neck to avoid overheating, etc.
  • White  cotton towel – Waving it at passing cars is an emergency distress signal, to clean up with after repairing vehicle
  • Wool stocking cap
  • 6 hand/foot warmers
  • Gloves

All of the gear fits nicely in a small backpack and it all weighs only about 22 lbs. But once you put on the tennis shoes, socks and drink the water, the weight drops a few pounds.  A little heavier than most will be used to carrying on long walks, but it isn’t over whelming and will give you plenty of resources to deal with a wide variety of situations.

While all of the items have multiple uses, the cash, prepaid calling card and emergency credit card are in all likelihood the most useful in most real world emergencies.  If you had a long walk the extra socks and tennis shoes would also come in very handy, especially if you have to wear nice dress clothes to work.  High heels or dress shoes aren’t fun on long walks. Well, I’m not personally aware of the comfort level of high heels, but my wife tells me they aren’t great…

So it may seem like a lot of gear all in all.  But when you start exploiting all of the hiding places in vehicles you would be surprised what you can hide away for safe keeping until it’s needed. Here are a few pics of what it looks like in the truck.

As you can see it all tucks away quite nicely and the only thing that is taking up any floor space or foot room is the GHB.

For my own vehicle a few additional items I would like to have, but haven’t purchased yet are a portable battery booster/jump starter and a high lift jack. I also plan to add two 4 foot 2x10s with ¼ “ grooves cut across them every couple of inches and painted with traction paint on  both sides.  Boards fashioned in that manner will go a long way in vehicle extraction and negotiating rough or rocky terrain.

What items that aren’t listed do you carry in your vehicle that could be useful in getting you back home?
