I wanted to make this one longer but there’s potential for a longer one after the speed dates are over. Thank you for all of the amazing comments on the part <3 It’s probably going to be a few days before I get the next one out but in between that I’m planning to post part 5 of Say You’ll Want Me.

Can you please write something about Carter saying his first words
Honestly, this was Will’s proudest moment as a father. He never
thought that this would be the highlight of his parenting, but it totally was. He
kept a hand over his mouth to stifle his laughter and the glare his husband was
sending him was enough to take down any one that wasn’t married to him. Will tried
to muster up a serious face, but a renewed chorus of their son’s chant ruined
Will’s chances of explaining himself. Carter was sitting on the couch,
repeating his first word like a mantra. Normally, their son’s first word would
cause celebration, but what his first word was stopped Nico in his tracks of
“Mitochondria!” Will wasn’t even entirely sure how Carter
managed to get all the syllables out, but he was impressed none of the less. The
fact that he taught his year old son the word mitochondria and that Carter
actually picked up on it was completely worth the wrath he was going to get
from Nico later.
“You taught him how to say mitochondria and not our names?
Seriously, Will?” Will could tell that Nico wasn’t very happy with him, but he
was still trying to hold back the laugh. At Nico’s accusations, though, Will
couldn’t help himself.
“Mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell.” Will doubled
over laughing, and Carter squealed along with his father. Through Will’s squinted
eyes, he could see Nico’s foot tapping, but he was too busy laughing. He still
couldn’t believe that Carter had picked up on Will constantly repeating
mitochondria to the point where it was his first word.
“Will, what the hell?” Will finally calmed down enough to
straighten himself up and look at his husband, who didn’t look very pleased
with Will’s parenting. Probably something to do with the fact that Will taught
their son a science term as his first word instead of either of his parent’s
names. Will preferred it this way though. It was a lot funnier.
“Oh, come on, Neeks, I didn’t think he’d actually pick it
up. It was just something stupid that happened to turn out hilarious.” Will watched
his husband fight against the smile that threatened to take over his face. Nico
rolled his eyes before letting his arms fall to his side and glancing down at
Carter, who had lost interest in the situation he had caused and instead was
chewing on his foot. Nico finally let the smile win and picked Carter up, who
seemed much happier to chew on Nico’s fingers then his own foot.
“It is kind of funny. Thought I’m still upset it wasn’t my
name.” Nico commented. Will knew he was just as impressed with the big word
their son had picked as Will was, he just didn’t want to admit it. “Mitochondria.
Who would’ve thought? It’s got a lot of syllables. I’m impressed.”
Will laughed again as he took Carter from Nico’s arms. “He’s
got the first part down. Now how needs to learn the rest of the phrase. Mitochondria
is the powerhouse of the cell.” Will touched Carter’s nose gently and Carter
Will seems like the kind of parent who would do that
Well YES SHE DID. I’ve been brutally busy the past year with everything from moving city to starting a new concept art job to hitchhiking for 3 months and I just…. didn’t have the spare energy to actually complete anything worth posting.
So I thought I’d start creating comics about my adventures whilst hitchhiking! Cos im certainly useless at fuckin WRITING these stories down..
I’ll make this into a lil series of all kinds of tales and stories if people are interested? But for now, here’s a few of the stupid animal problems I had at night….. super goddamn rough because that’s all i can achieve at the moment
A character of mine ends up getting pregnant unexpectedly. However, she can't have a child in her current situation, so she looks for an abortion. My question is, what would that procedure look like? Are there any side effects she would have to deal with after? She does a lot of physical activity on a daily basis, how much would that be affected? She is in her early 20s if that helps at all. Thank you so much!!
Okay. So I suppose we need to do one of these again:
TRIGGER WARNING: ABORTION / TERMINATION OF PREGNANCY.
So let’s get cracking!
First off, a lot of the specifics about the process of your
character obtaining a safe, medically
supervised abortion are going to vary by location. Laws regarding terminating
pregnancy are very different in different places, and I strongly suggest you
research not just those of the country your character lives in, but of the
specific area you’ve set the story in as well. Your character may find it very
challenging to even get to the process of actually speaking to a physician
about her medical procedure.
There is one thing to mention here: Your character turning
to an unlicensed, unregulated, or otherwise “unauthorized” provider is a BAD
IDEA. Terminations performed without the supervision of a physician CAN AND
HAVE BEEN FATAL in the real world. There are many ways this can go wrong, and
your character should have access to physicians before, during, and after the
In all cases of medically supervised abortion, there is some
form of counseling about what the procedure entails and what she can expect.
The details of these are often legally mandated, and I’m not going to discuss
them beyond this, but it is worth researching this aspect as well.
All that said, there are two basic types of terminations:
medical and surgical.
Most terminations in the first trimester—within 64 days, or 9
weeks, of fertilization—is done with medication rather than surgery. This is
done with a 1-2 combination of medications, mifepristone and misoprostol. Your
character will take the mifepristone in the doctor’s office, then misoprostol a
couple hours later at home. About 4-6 hours after taking the misoprostol, your
character’s pregnancy tissue will be expelled through her vaginal canal.
She will also likely experience abdominal cramping for a few
hours (up to 8hrs after the misoprostol), and heavy vaginal bleeding for the
first few hours. She may continue to have some bleeding for up to a couple of
weeks. She may also experience fever, nausea, and vomiting as side effects of
It’s possible, but not very common, for a woman to be
offered a medical abortion (aka induced abortion) in the 2nd
trimester of pregnancy. There are several downsides to this approach. The risk
of infection and hemorrhage is greater than a D&C or D&E, and in
addition, there is a risk that the uterine contents won’t pass, or won’t pass
completely, and a D&E may be necessary anyway. In the 2nd
trimester, an induced abortion must be done in-hospital in a labor &
delivery ward, whereas a surgical option can be performed in an outpatient
Surgical Abortions (D&C, D&E)
By contrast, once past the 9-week mark, most US pregnancy
terminations are done surgically, with a technique called dilation &
curettage, or dilation & evactuation (D&C or D&E). The patient is
placed in stirrups, her cervix dilated with medication and/or a speculum, and
the inside of the uterus is typically scraped with a hooked implement called a curette, and/or the uterine contents are
removed with suction. Many places use these terms interchangeably.
D&Cs/D&Es are quick, relatively painless procedures
that are often completed inside of 30 minutes once actually initiated. It’s
also worth noting that while this is a much more popular choice in the 2nd
trimester, it can definitely be performed in the 1st trimester as
well. It’s also worth noting that your character may or may not be offered some
Your character can expect some vaginal bleeding and lower
abdominal pain and cramping after the procedure, which should last a few hours
and will probably feel a lot better with some ibuprofen, though pain may
No matter which way your character and her providers choose
to terminate, your character will likely feel some malaise for a couple of days,
in part from some blood loss, in part because her body is physically recovering
from the pregnancy. Let how she’s feeling guide her exercise. She may choose to
postpone or skip workouts, or shorten their duration. If she has a physical
job, she may ask to take it easy for a couple of days. A couple of days’ worth
of sick time would not be out of the question here.
Her ability to conceive children in the future won’t be
affected by the procedure.
Overall, when abortion is performed by qualified providers
with training, it is a safe procedure with low rates of complication (though
complication rates increase as gestational length increases).
The following morning, you woke up without feeling any emptiness within you, actually for what it was worth you finally felt complete - it was as if the last and most important piece of the puzzle was yet to solve the overall image. You strongly suspected your feeling of completeness to have been triggered by the conversation you had with Jimin the previous night. Looking around at your surroundings you began to feel slightly baffled as to how you had gotten in your bedroom. You could have sworn that yesterday you had spent the whole night on the couch talking with Jimin … Actually, you couldn’t quite recall most of the stuff that had happened last night.
As usual, your hand would wander around for a couple of seconds along the fabric of the bed sheet that laid on top of you mattress in the hope that you would find Jimin’s body laying restlessly next to your own and for once in a very long time your hand came into contact with his own. Almost immediately you felt obliged to pull away, yet, you were gravely tempted to hold on to his hand even if it was just for a second. Hesitantly, your hand made its way to his own before you let out a loud gasp due to him enclosing your wrist delicately in his fingers.
“Hey” he greeted you in a sleepy voice as a faint smile tugged at both corners of his lips.
You wanted to reply but for some reason you couldn’t bring yourself to let the words leave your mouth. You were speechless and completely mesmerised by the beauty of your fiancé ‘ex-fiancé’. Slowly, his fingers let go of your wrist to comfortably intertwine themselves in yours. Truthfully no moment could ever be as perfect as the one you were currently experiencing and you honestly wouldn’t mind getting used to waking up to this everyday. However, knowing that he was still in a ‘relationship’ with Nari just made this overpowering current of guilt flow through you, even if rightfully this was where he belonged.
You threw him an apologetic glance and it was as if he knew exactly how you were feeling, he let go of your hand while his eyes bored into your own - searching deep into your soul. “_____, I’m really sorry. I didn’t mean to make you feel uncomfortable, I’ve just been thinking a lot about what was said last night so I thought you would be okay with it.”
You sighed as you tried to recall what the actual conversation was about, though, no matter how hard you tried, it seemed to have completely slipped from your mind, “Jimin, I-”
You were interrupted by him “It doesn’t matter… Thanks for letting me stay for the night.” Before you could say anything else he got up from the bed and made his way to the bathroom. You couldn’t understand why you couldn’t bring yourself to say what you wanted to tell him. Throwing your blanket aside you quickly got out of bed and made your way to the open kitchen to prepare a small breakfast for him. The entire time you spent cooking all you could only think about how stupid you were for not speaking out to him or letting him know how you truly felt. After Jimin had closed the bathroom door you could hear his feet dragging themselves along the wooden floor of your apartment, his steps seemed to be approaching closer to where you were. Once he finally entered the open kitchen he gave you a longing look, “I’ll get going now” he said as an exasperated sigh left his lips.
“No. I mean, I made breakfast so if you’re hungry then please help yourself” you said, seeing his eyes dropping down to the food you had finished preparing thus causing his eyebrows to quiver ever so slightly in astonishment as his whole face radiantly lit up, he appeared to be content with the effort you had made “_____~ah you shouldn’t have …”
“Listen, I really want to say sorry for what happened earlier. I only pulled away because I’m not used to that, it’s been such a long time that I’ve had anyone do that to me so I was just shocked. Jimin, I do like you. For what it’s worth I like you a lot but I feel as if I have to restrain myself because you’re still in a relationship with Nari.” Everything had happened so fast, immediately after you were done Jimin had yanked your wrist promptly pulling you closer to him before he wrapped you in his arms, holding you as if his life depended on it. The hug was so sudden yet you were able to ease into it without any problems. “_____, can we just stay like this for a bit, please?” you nodded in response whilst laying your head against his chest to distinctly listen to his heart beat. There was something about the way his heart beat pounded at his chest that made you feel as if you had entered one of your peaceful dreams. You then wrapped your arms around his waist, closing your eyes as you inhaled his scent. The hug lasted for a couple seconds more but when you opened your eyes, you began to feel tears welling up in your eyes. Some of the tears were due to you missing the contact of the warmth of his body against your own, but, most of the tears were due to you missing the way things used to be.
Jimin’s cheeks were flushed in a soft pink colour as his nerves started becoming apparent, he tried biting on his bottom lip to hide them, though, this only made his nerves become more obvious. “A-are you okay? What’s wrong?”
You shook your head whilst attempting to fight the tears that threatened to roll on to your cheeks “I don’t want you to leave. I want you to stay, I can’t lose you again.” Jimin started wiping away at your tears with his thumbs with a mere expression of confusion written all over his face “_____, you’re not going to lose me, I’ll always be there for you.” … If only he knew. Deep inside, he knew he wanted to cry as well but he did well to restrain himself, instead, he brushed off the thought that seemed to sadden him and replaced the minor sorrow with a broad grin. Of course, when you were dating you knew that he would hide his pain by making you believe that he was fine. Although his expression was very convincing - it didn’t fool you, at all. “I don’t like seeing you upset so maybe we should eat first, before the food gets cold and then we could just have fun together.” he suggested and that’s exactly what you did.
You sat opposite each other at the dining table, nearly wolfing down the food as you both exchanged jokes that installed a presence of an enjoyable atmosphere in the room. Hours later after you had finished eating and talking, Jimin turned on the TV in the living room. Flickering between channels before he stumbled across a music video channel. Instead of clearing the table you watched him, as the rhythm of the song travelled through his body, influencing the flow of his movements as he danced. He continued for a while but then stopped when he realised that you were watching him. A smirk presented itself on his lips as he gestured for you to come over. Without even leaving yourself time to think, you went to the living room and joined him to dance a little bit. The music was drowned by the sound of yours and Jimin’s laughter, the both of you danced until you could feel your energy slowly draining.
Once you were done, you both lazed into the couch - trying to catch your breath. Jimin’s phone started ringing causing him to stare at the caller ID in complete shock, if anything, he seemed afraid to answer. His hands started trembling a little bit as he pressed a button that ignored the call. Without saying a word he grabbed his coat and made his way over to the corridor to grab his shoes, you had followed him into the corridor. You stood there, trying to figure out why he didn’t want to stay or if you did something that made him feel the need to leave. Jimin was about to leave without even saying ‘goodbye’, therefore, you grasped on to his wrist as tightly as you could so that he wouldn’t go - which subconsciously made him turn around and caused his eyes to widen, you could tell that he didn’t expect you to grab on to him like that so you released your grip. To your surprise, Jimin had cupped your face in his hands before carefully entrapping your lips inbetween his own. He savoured the taste of your lips as fresh tears starting rolling on to his cheeks, only this time he knew there was no way he could hold them back. He broke from the kiss, as he tried so hard not to look at you, though, instantly his eyes met yours. “Jimin, please stay” you said feeling your voice break a little.
He sighed “One day, we’ll be together. I promise, but first I’m going to have to confront Nari”
He started putting on his coat, without realising that something had fallen out of his pocket. It was a small object. At first, you weren’t quite sure what the object was - before your eyes started analysing it as you went to pick it up. You glanced up at Jimin feeling your heart pounding so much quicker than it’s usual steady pace. “Jimin?” he hummed in response but, he wasn’t paying much attention to you considering he was preoccupied with something else. He started patting his pockets finally realising that something was missing. “Why did you have my car keys in your pocket?”
He scratched the side of his head as he stared at you in disbelief “You wouldn’t believe me, if I told you.” Your gaze stayed fixated on him as you clutched tightly on to the car keys “Go on, why did you take them?”
You could see him starting to get frustrated, he acted the exact same way he did one month ago when you had gotten into that argument and for the first time in a long time, you could finally see the ‘Jimin’ you were used to, “Because I keep seeing them in my dreams. Every single night, when I go to sleep I have this dream and I don’t quite know why so I’d really like to know … I thought that maybe if I familiarise myself with the keys I could finally understand why I keep seeing them.”
“What’s the dream about?” you asked while raising an eyebrow.
“It’s stupid. Basically, I keep dreaming about this girl … I don’t really know who she is but in my dream she takes the form of a dark silhouette and in the dream she’s my fiancée, we were arguing but I got so angry that I just wanted to leave and clear my head. I grabbed the car keys and slammed the door on my way out. I went for a ride in her car and before I knew it a random car came crashing into hers. But I didn’t die, instead, I got taken to a hospital … Ah, I told you it was a stupid dream but I’d still like to know why I have the same dream every night,”
You shook your head finding it immensely painful to keep in mind what Doctor Kang had told you to do, “Jimin that’s not a dream … It really happened.”
Jimin started ruffling up his hair as you could see his anger starting to rise “It doesn’t make any sense. Why can’t I remember it actually happening!?”
“Because you’re suffering from memory loss … That’s also the reason why you can’t remember me, either”
“Wait! What? Do you mean to say that you’re that girl in my dreams? You’re my fiancée!?” He put a hand over his mouth in attempt to silence his whimpers as you nodded your head.
Who knew it would be this hard, I mean you hear about what people say it’s like but who knew it would be this hard. You thought it would be 2 pushes and done, but no, it’s a lot harder.
Your breathing heavy and just want to get it over and done with, you just want this little bastard out of you, after 9 whole months of crazy hormones, pain, and just getting fat, this kid better the best damn kid ever.
“Keep calm baby” you hear someone to your left say.
“Shut up Austin. You want to do this? You want to push a fucking baby out of you fucking penis, which is the worst thing ever must I add cause that thing got me pregnant, and have me telling you to keep calm huh?” Austin just looks at you a little scared “thought not.”
“Wait,” Steve’s eyes widened in shock, his cheeks gaining a pretty pink dusting as he processed the new information. “You’re telling me that you’ve never… um, n-not ever?”
Bucky rolled his eyes with an air of carelessness, but he was actually trying his best not to start blushing himself. As if being the 90-something year old virgin wasn’t bad enough, Steve had to go and find out about it to make things worse.
“Nope, not ever,” Bucky answered, careful to keep his tone light. “The time never seemed right. Somethin’ always happened and.. well.” He trailed off with a shrug, glancing at Steve’s puzzled expression.
“Yeah but all those dames you took out, I thought surelyyou must have..” Steve tilted his head, the blush starting to subdue as he spoke. “You know -"
one thing that never seems to come up during the Great Beauty Debate™ is why autistic people might be drawn to unnecessary beauty rituals
like listen. listen. i can and have go out of the house wearing things that show my legs when they havent been shaved. it’s nbd to me. it’s fine. the reason i make a point of removing leg hair is because have you ever felt soft, smooth legs?? do you know how they feel?? do you understand what it is to have hairless legs touch each other when they cross.
it has maybe like, 2% at most to do with beauty or sensuality and 98% to do with texture.
same thing with skin and haircare!!! it’s all!! about!!! texture!!! i love having soft, smooth skin and soft, silky hair because it’s nice to touch!!! it’s comforting!!! i love it!!!
(NOT TO MENTION the fact that hair is basically a stim toy that grows directly out of my head!!! for free!!! of course i’m going to keep it as long as possible! of course i’m going to lavish attention on it so it can continue to be effective at it’s primary job, which is keeping my hands entertained!!!)
like hands to god, even if i’m too lazy to shave (which isnt a problem so much anymore, i started waxing, which is painful but completely worth the time saved and end result) i actually use conditioner on my leg hair bc hairy legs are one thing, that’s fine, i can live, but dry leg hair is a fucking sensory nightmare.
so that’s where i am, and i’ve never seen anyone else bring this up, so i thought i’d throw it out there.
I think Niall was papped buying a baby gift to purposely display the difference between how Ruby was treated versus Freddie. I'm sure Louis' team is doing everything they can to create a sense of doubt because hopefully a denial is coming soon and they want people to realize something was shady. Did you see the blinditem today implying that Cheryl wants a reality TV show for when the baby is born? I actually believe it!
See, I agree with you & absolutely think everything surrounding babygate was and is shady (literally over a year’s worth of shady), and I really do hope a denial is coming soon.
But! let’s talk about this Blind Gossip item, because the Blinds regarding Cherliam have been reallyyyyyyy interesting.
Blind Gossip has the integrity of a county landfill, but they and Crazy Days and Nights (another country landfill known for its industry blinds) have been painting a really distinct narrative in regards to Cherliam. They’ve basically been making Cheryl out to be a manipulative fame hungry lady spider, duping poor naive Loammy Jean for fame.
For what it’s worth, I actually could completely see Cheryl having a reality show after her baby is born. I think Cheryl is determined to try and make a career comeback with her album next year (and has basically said as much to The Sun), and I think the baby is part of her new image revamp and marketing plan.
But let’s revisit some of these Cherliam blinds under the cut, because they actually paint a pretty cohesive picture ..almost as if they were planted!
I wanna talk about the first time Aomine and Kagami met since it’s pretty much not talked about ever.
Just imagine Aomine hearing about Kise and Midorima losing and thinking he just has to meet this guy. Someone so interesting that he might actually be worth playing for once and not be a complete waste of his time. Enough so that he asks Momoi for a brief description of what he looks like one day and figures skipping basketball practice his usual nap and a peek through his Mai-chan photo book will be worth it to find a worthy opponent.
So Aomine actually takes his lazy self and visits an ass load of basketball courts just to find this kid. Like how hard is it to find a red head around his height with weird eyebrows and a necklace? It turns out it’s pretty hard and he doesn’t give up till he passes by one of his previously favorite courts (back when he was puremine and an absolute basketball geek) and he sees red hair and he stops mid step and gets absolutely excited.
Like, so excited he just stands there for a bit and watches him play with the ball in his hand. And he briefly inspects to see if everything is there: the necklace, the height, and of course those eyebrows. And he actually has to calm himself down because this guy actually looks like a potential person he can go all out against. BUt he fully walks on to the court and sees that poor ass attempt at a shot Kagami tries to make and his mood goes from interested to bored in seconds.
But he decides to play him anyway, hoping that shot was just a fluke and that Tetsu wouldn’t pick someone like this to be his light. And of course the match wasn’t what he expected it to be and he’s back to where he was, absolutely disappointed and thinking a player just as good as him or better is nowhere to be found. So much so that he doesn’t realize till the match is over when Kagami is walking towards the basketball that there’s definitely a limp in his step and that this dumbass actually had the nerve to play him while he was injured.
Which he knew was a seal of fate on Seirin’s part for their upcoming match. And that’s where his regret comes in for showing up late to their match. Actually thinking that playing against Kagami and worsening his injury could keep him down. He was utterly wrong since he couldn’t keep his eyes off him throughout the match and sneak glances at him on the bench during the fourth quarter. The rage to play in the game was rolling off Kagami in waves and there was still determination on his face even as the points widened between Touou and Seirin.
Aomine realized Kagami is the type of guy to never give up no matter the challenge and in the long run, it made Aomine happy he never gave up on him.
