Word Count:  6028

Author’s note: Guys…SMUTT SO MUCH SMUTT! The reader also has a past with Wade Wilson..so this is kinda a dead pool imagine too? ( but not in the way you guys will think;)~ the reader also has powers!!)

Sam laughed, “ And that was how I lost my virginity..but if that story leaves this room y’all are cold”. The entire room laughed along with him, even though there was only five other people in it.

You all had been bored in between missions and decided to play a game of truth or dare. When alcohol was thrown into the equation, things got dirty real fast. Steve laughed, “ God after hearing that story I don’t think being a virgin is too bad”.

Bucky and Natasha threw you knowing glances, but the blush on your cheeks made things pretty obvious anyways. How could you not have a crush on the most well liked man in all of America?

You left the Salvatore house, sure that no one noticed at all. They were to preoccupied to notice you anyway. They cared for a while, when you and Caroline were turned, well, Stefan did. But more and more happened, and it was like you faded away. You had more control over your Vampirism than Caroline, but she was stronger so she was included more in the problems you were all facing, everyone tried to push you out, thinking you couldn’t handle it, so they left you alone. 

You tried to explain to them you could help, Matt could why couldn’t you? You figured it was because no one understood you. You had trouble being clear with your thoughts, no one could keep up with them. Hell, you barely could sometimes. 

You and Carolines relationship was strained these days. You two use to be so close, you were twins after all. Though, not identical. You wish you were sometimes, Caroline was so beautiful, you figured that was why Klaus was interested in her. Why did you care anyway? Klaus was the bad guy wasn’t he? Caroline couldn’t care about him any less. Why didn’t he like you? Why didn’t anyone like you? You use to cry over this all the time, but now, you were so use to it, you no longer wasted your tears on those who didn’t care about you.

Before you knew it, you had walked all the way home. Walking in you call out “I’m home mom!” hearing no response you figured she was at work. You walked up the stairs and went into your room. Your eyes immediately going to the box on your bed. Walking over you saw an invitation to the Mikaelsons ball, you picked it up ready to take it to Carolines room, Klaus must have gotten her a gift or something, and thought this was her room. 

Stopping before you left your room, you looked back down at the box, you wanted to know what was in it. “It was on my bed. If she gets mad at me for opening it, it’s not my fault.” you said out loud to yourself. 

Turning around you put the box back on your bed. You took the envelope, opening it looking at the invitation you turn it over. You couldn’t believe what was on the back. “Save me a dance y/n. Fondly, Klaus” he wasn’t serious was he? He invited you and not Caroline? He must be up to something. Glancing at the box you slowly took the lid off gasping at what was in the box. A beautiful red sparkling gown. You touched it gently feeling the fabric.

anonymous asked:

Hi Dr. Ferox, I am a student in my undergrad planning on applying to vet school soon. Recently on tumblr I have been seeing a lot of vets say they wish they never became vets and making very discouraging posts about how no one should pursue this career cause they will just be broke and angry/upset. Any encouraging words for students pursuing this career to stay motivated to follow their dream?

This is probably not what you want to hear.

If you become a vet you will spend a lot of your time being angry, frustrated and upset. You will also spend a lot of time lamenting that you are not paid like a human doctor, despite having the same level of skills, whilst simultaneously being told by the animal owning public how much money you ‘must’ be making.

It certainly gets you down. By the time we’ve been in practice for 5 years, about a third of new vets will no longer be working in clinical practice. Lots of us leave.

Also, we are between 4 and 6 times more likely to take our own lives than the general public.

They’re not telling you these things, and I’m not telling you these things, in order to discourage you from becoming a vet. We tell you these things to forewarn you. If you are prepared and aware of the challenges you face, you will be better equipped to deal with them.

Veterinary medicine is a high stress, highly demanding career with a large emotional and moral burden and very unsociable hours. It’s not actually good for your brain, and it’s not right for everyone. I would prefer would-be vets walk into the profession knowing they might have to walk themselves out again.

And I would  much rather somebody decide to give up on being a vet than give up on life.

“Becoming a Vet” should not be your end goal. That only takes a couple of years, not a lifetime, and then what are you going to do? You should look at other options, you should have other plans, escape routes if everything doesn’t work out.

As a profession we have a huge issue with mental health. We talk about these things because they’re important to us, and they’re real. As much as you don’t want to hear it to be ‘discouraged’, you shouldn’t ignore them. Consider them an opportunity to learn from someone else’s mistakes, including my own.

I have said before that if animals are the only thing that brings you joy in life, don’t become a vet. I would still stand by that sentiment. If animals really are the only thing that brings you any happiness, stay out of vet medicine and don’t dissect and overanalyze your only source of joy. 

Now, I know it’s not something you wanted to here, but it’s something you needed to hear anyway. I’m not here to tell you it’s all puppies and kittens and rainbows. I’m here to tell you what you need to hear.

If veterinary medicine is what you’re heart is set on, then you will set out to do it regardless of what I or any other vet on the internet tell you. As it should be. The career certainly does have its rewards, but it also has many, many pitfalls.

We learn to cope, to varying extents, in different ways. I can only hope that you will learn to recognize those pitfalls before you fall into them.


Women of the House of Haleth

Like to [the House of Beor] were the woodland folk of Haleth, but they were of lesser stature, and less eager for lore. They used few words, and did not love great concourse of men; and many among them delighted in solitude, wandering free in the greenwoods while the wonder of the lands of the Eldar was new upon them.

- The Silmarillion

[The Folk of Haleth] did not willingly adopt new things or customs, and retained many practices that seemed strange to the Eldar and the other Atani, with whom they had few dealings except in war. Nonetheless, they were esteemed as loyal allies and redoubtable warriors, though the companies they sent to battle beyond their borders were small…One of the strange practices spoken of was that many of their warriors were women, though few of these went abroad to fight in the great battles. 

- Of Dwarves and Men

Haleth - Thalissa Teixeira ✧ Haldar’s wife (Danyal) - Camila Pitanga
Hareth - Keisha Castle-Hughes ✧ Hiril - Courtney Eaton
Hunleth - Ashley Madekwe ✧ Meleth - Hanelle Harris 

gayest shakespeare sonnets: a selection

turns out all the sonnets are really gay but here is my list of the absolute gayest ones, because i was not prepared for how explicit these were going to be and it devastated me 

sonnet 20 - this is the ‘master-mistress of my passion’ one

sonnet 22 - ‘Presume not on thy heart when mine is slain; / Thou gav’st me thine, not to give back again.’

sonnet 23 - acting metaphors! the difficulty of expressing verbally what silent love hath writ! gazing at your love with your whole heart in your eyes!

sonnet 25 - rich and noble people have joy in honour and wealth and so on but turns out having joy in being gay is way better than that - ‘Then happy I, that love and am beloved / Where I may not remove nor be removed.’

sonnet 26 - begins ‘Lord of my love’ and just gets gayer from there

sonnet 27 - for those nights when u can’t sleep for staying up pining and thinking about him

sonnet 41 - this one’s sad bc his boyfriend is Straying but also love btw a man and woman is explicitly directly made analogous to the love between the speaker and the addressee so like. stop no-homoing the sonnets

sonnet 53 - compare ur bf to both helen and adonis, no big deal

sonnet 57 - this love is the speaker’s WHOLE LIFE and he knows he’s a fool for his bf but he can’t help it

sonnet 61 - another too-gay-to-sleep one

sonnet 71 and sonnet 72 - don’t be sad for me when i’m dead, i’d rather be forgotten by you than have you be sad or be exposed to ridicule over your love for me - please read these ones they make me cry

sonnet 80 - RIVAL POET someone else is writing fancier poems about you!! now what!!

sonnet 87 - ‘Farewell! thou art too dear for my possessing,’ aka If You Love Someone Let Him Go (sad)

sonnet 91 - i’m not rich or noble but at least i’m not straight, mark two - ‘Thy love is better than high birth to me, / Richer than wealth, prouder than garments’ cost, / Of more delight than hawks or horses be; / And having thee, of all men’s pride I boast’

sonnet 93 - ‘So shall I live, supposing thou art true, / Like a deceived husband’ - just comparing yourself to his HUSBAND. bye

sonnet 108 - the reason he’s writing all these sonnets is to immortalise their love for antiquity - ‘So that eternal love in love’s fresh case / Weighs not the dust and injury of age’. also, ‘sweet boy’

Tosaki’s wedding

Haha okay so: 31.07. Day 7: rest?  | anything goes  | sun

I decided to take this day to draw Tosaki’s wedding (with his fiance, I think her name is Ai?) in a happy ending maybe…haha I don’t know it seemed like a funny idea in my mind XD and drawing all this crap was actually really fun. So this was clearly meant to be ridiculous so, what the hell? I just hope you enjoy and laugh with me at this shit I made. 

Since Ajin is such a dense manga, and I really love the characters, sometimes I just feel like I want to see them doing stupid things together… (unfortunately I didn’t think it’d be right to include Sato and the others here xd except for Tanaka, cuz he’s just a cinnamon roll). 

(Anyway I apologize for the bad quality of some drawings that are next ): when I’ve my computer fixed, I’ll make them well).

Nice Try

Pairings: Kol x Reader (Ft. Elena, Salvatores & Mikaelsons)

Warnings: Some violence?

Word Count: 1324

Elena Gilbert. The brunette who had the Salvatore Brothers wrapped around her finger. Right now she wanted The Mikaelsons (Klaus especially) dead more than anyone. You’ve once told her to ‘get in line’ because there’s no doubt there are hundreds possibly thousands of people who would want them dead but will never succeed.

You’ve been by Kol’s side for over 300 years and you’ve succeeded in preventing him from getting daggered by Klaus like the rest of his siblings have numerous times in the past.

You were surprised when you received a phone call from Elena saying that she wanted to call a truce. She informed you that she also called The Mikaelsons over as well. You sent a text to your lover, informing him that you’re on your way to the Salvatore’s place and that you hope to see him soon.

Arriving at the doorstep, you opened the door, surprised that you didn’t need an invite inside. You were too busy greeting Elena, Stefan and Damon that you didn’t realize your phone vibrated from Kol’s phone call.

“I’m surprised that I’m the first one here. Elijah is always the one on time.” You mentioned.

“He could be, well you know, stuck in traffic.” Damon joked, shrugging his shoulders before taking a sip of his filled glass of bourbon.

“Care for a drink?” Stefan offered while pouring himself a glass.

“Hmmm why not?” You accepted.

“So Y/N!” Elena quickly grabbed your attention. “Now let’s talk about this truce.”

You narrowed your eyes at her from her sudden excitement. “You don’t want to wait until the rest of them get here?”

“Early bird gets the worm.” Damon responded, then Stefan stepped towards you to hand you your drink, mouthing ‘here you go’.

Elena continued, “Anyways, yeah what Damon said. All we want, including the rest of our group, is peace.”

“I agree.” You started, taking a seat on the sofa. “That’s all I’ve ever wanted, even though my Kol and the rest of his siblings can be reckless.”

“Too reckless.” Damon added.

You finally found the time to cherish this aged bourbon filled ¼ of the way in the glass you are holding. When the bourbon hit your mouth it felt like hot pokers making contact with your mouth and your throat. Instantly, you started coughing, choking and gagging at the same time from the immense discomfort, releasing the glass from your hand.

“Stefan now!” Damon shouted, seeing that Stefan is closest to you. Damon then pushed Elena away from the action while Stefan grabbed onto you.

But you quickly healed from the vervain that pierced your throat and used your strength of being a 300 year old vampire to defend yourself. Your arm entered into Stefan’s chest, but before you could get close enough to his heart, Damon chimes in and pulls you off.

You could’ve easily ran off, but you were too angered at being lied to that you just wanted to see the three of them dead. This battle you fought alone against the Salvatore brothers was never ending. Yes you are quite older than them, but 2 against one isn’t easy unless you’re over 1000 years old like your lover.

Elena held a stake in her hand, using her bravery to run over and attempt to pierce it through your heart, but before she had the chance to even get close to you, Kol and Elijah arrived right on time to come and save you. Kol vampire sped in front of Elena and pushed her over. Elijah placed himself in the middle of you and the Salvatores to prevent the fight from continuing.

“Enough with this nonsense. Nobody will lay another finger on Y/N.” Elijah demanded.

“Give me a reason not to rip her bloody head off right now!” Kol shouted, pointing at Elena who is still on the floor groaning in pain.

“I swear Kol, if you lay another hand on her-” Damon threatened with his eyes wide as ever but didn’t move knowing that Elijah can easily snap his neck if he tries anything.

“Oh I’m sorry? Did I fail to mention that the lot of you tried to have my darling killed?!” Kol being livid as ever, showed his vampire face.

Stefan slowly took one step forward, putting his hands up in defense. “Kol. Please.” He pleaded to Kol.

“Are we late to the party?” Rebekah grinned while walking in with Klaus, everyone’s attention was now on them.

“Seems we are, sister.” Klaus responded with a smirk on his face. He and his sister sure were acting cocky as hell right now, being originals and all, also knowing that their enemies are out numbered.

Elena still laid on the floor, now swallowing the lump in her throat from fear knowing that their plan didn’t go as they wished, which is to kill each and every one of you one by one. And there was no doubt in her mind that her life, as well as Stefan and Damon’s could be ended any moment. They thought you would be the easiest one to be rid of, that’s why they started with you first.

Kol’s patience was running short so he vampire sped to Elena, grabbing her by the throat. Stefan and Damon tried to vampire speed to Elena, but it was a fail.

“I don’t think so, mate.” Klaus was just inches away from Damons face while gripping tight at his shoulders. “I’m sure a nasty bite from me wouldn’t ease the situation. Now would it?”

“'Nice try, Stefan.” Rebekah pushed Stefan against the wall, looking back and forth from his eyes to his lips to fake tease.

“One more tight squeeze and you’re dead.” Kol scowled at Elena while you smiled, seeing how protective he is of you. “No more innocent Elena to burden everyone.”

“Kol that’s enough.” Elijah, with one hand in his front pants pocket, stepped towards Kol.

“Pardon? Whose side are you on, brother?”

“Do not question my loyalty. Now let Elena go.”

“If you imbeciles even think about harming Y/N again, I’ll see to it you that you all suffer a slow and painful death.” Kol spat, finally released his tight grasp at Elena’s threat. She was now at her knees catching her breath. Rebekah, who scoffed, and Klaus, who rolled his eyes, allowed Stefan and Damon to come to her aid.

Kol then grabbed your forearm and vampire sped you out of there. He couldn’t look at Elena and the Salvatore brothers without the temptation of tearing them in half.

“Are you alright? Did they hurt you?” Kol scanned your body throughly to make sure there weren’t any splinters or pieces of wood on you.

“And did you forgot that I am over 300 years old? Vampires heal.” You chuckled at Kol’s concern. He always was overly protective of you. Like that one time when a random guy was hitting on you and made a sly remark to Kol, which caused Kol to make a scene by ripping the guy’s arms off. And people thought Klaus was bad when it comes to being protective.

“If it wasn’t for my wanker of a brother, Elijah, I would’ve killed the lot of them.”

“Same here. But your brother is very noble and only wants peace.”

“How about we get out of this bloody town and find residence elsewhere, darling?” Kol suggested. He pulled you in for a hug, allowing you to listen to his heartbeat. He hugged you so tight, showing you that he never wants to risk losing you again. Words weren’t needed for you to know this. The hold he has you in made it quite clear.

“Anywhere with you.” You lifted your head up to look at how beautifully sculptured Kol’s face is. He loosens his hug and leans down to kiss you passionately. Even being with him for over 300 years, he still managed to give you butterflies.

Can I pls have an hc of rfa and their kids ? And only if u can include some pics of gifs that would be doooope🙈

YASS!! I’m sorry I couldn’t find gifs for everyone, just pictures. Because of this my recent search was ‘dad and baby, baby daddy’. I’m sorry if the gif / pic is not to expectation :(

Anyways! Enjoy~~

- E.


  • Still busy with work and all. But deep inside he wanted to be with his kids.
  • For the several first months, the baby may not attach to him, rarely seeing him and all. So this kind of hurt him a bit.
  • He’ll probably keep a picture of them as his wallpaper. MC took it, when he took it, it was blurry.
  • So, when he’s back he’ll spend all of his time with his kids.
  • MC will always find him sleeping with his children at night. If he had to climb inside the crib, HE WILL.


  • Yeah, I think he’s going to do this.
  • And then brag about it on the group chat.
  • He’ll be super doting, lavishing the baby with the love he never got on his childhood.
  • But he’ll keep his kid out of public eye, never making a reveal to public and all.
  • He’s the kind that’ll serenade his baby to sleep with musical arias (he legit will)


  • When a package arrived at their home, MC found matching costumes in it.
  • A costume of his LOLOL character, in adult size and kid size.
  • He’ll probably start the kid early on cosplaying XD
  • He’s the kind that’ll probably cry together with the baby if MC leave them for a moment.
  • “Yoosung….. I just went to the kombini…..”
  • For him, it was growing together with the baby.


  • *cue MC screaming in the background*
  • He’ll raise the happiest most cheerful kid around
  • He’ll let his kid try anything, do anything.
  • “When can they start drinking PhD Pepper?” “Saeyoung…. They’re still 6 months old….”
  • He’ll still be very protective and all. Probably giving them a tracking device made as a bracelet.
  • And he’ll be the kind to ugly cry when he finally hears ‘da…da’


  • He’ll be the most considerate husband-father ever
  • Hospital bag? Baby bag? He got it all prepared.
  • Late night crying? Don’t worry he’s on it. 
  • Piles of baby clothes to wash? He got it all separated and washed.
  • Bathing baby? He’ll do most of the work
  • Just like him, he’ll raise the most gentle child with a very compassionate personality.
  • The baby room would probably be decorated with lots of baby photos. He’ll probably end up with almost 2000 photos by the time they’re 1.

alright so i know i ought to take a break for the sake of my own health at this point (and by health i mean skincare cause yall give me acne) but i’m terrible at shutting up. so one last thing:

the fact that the majority of you seem to think that me speaking out against the bullshit and micro-aggressive behavior black girls like me have to face in this fandom is simply more ammo to ‘defend yourself against’ in this stupid ship war is truly hilarious, but also infuriating.

me saying that kallura is not the worst thing in the world is me defending ALLURA, my favorite character in this show, first and foremost.

princess allura is a black girl character unlike one i have ever seen in mainstream media before.

~ i go into detail about that here and this same topic was even discussed in a ‘black girl nerds’ article here 

but anyone who knows me, and follows my other sideblog fuckin knows that i’d been hoping to see keith and lance be happy boyfriends in a wholesome and romantic relationship on screen since before this fandom could decide on a ship name for them. i’m fuckin GAY, you weirdos. no duh i understand how groundbreaking klance being canon would be. it’d mean the sun and the moon to non-straight people of color everywhere, including my own damn self.

but the fact is that this fandom took the wonderful concept that is “klance” and perverted it and toxified it AND have been using faux progressive arguments to use this ship as a reason to shit on allura — who again, is a character that means a lot to black and brown girls in this fandom for myriads of reasons. so yes, fuck all of you from the bottom of my gay black girl heart 💞 !!

and i don’t speak for any other black girl but myself, so if you’re mad about this perspective take it up with me, you cowards. don’t bother any other black girls in this fandom, my inbox is open.

kallura may never be canon. who fuckin knows. who fuckin cares. neither will some of the few truly wholesome ships in this hell fandom like hunk x keith or hunk x lance or nyma x shay. does it really fuckin matter? as long as the ship isn’t normalizing abuse or pedophilia, let people ship what they want. god.

and no, kallura is not toxic, you guys can’t even decide why you hate it. and that’s exactly what this post is about.

i defend kallura occasionally on this blog solely because this is an ALLURA BLOG. and kallura is the one ship involving allura that actually has some potential to happen on screen. if you want to reduce everything i say as me participating in your dumbass ship war, then go ahead. i couldn’t spare one fuck.

anyway. popular anti-kallura arguments and my response to them all under the cut. all in one tidy text post for easy consumption — screencaps included cause i’m a perfectionist and i want all my posts to look nice ^^

A Motorcycle AU. I’m surprised that I haven’t found any Motorcycle AU for the Voltron/Klance Fandom. Therefore, I bring you this 2 Quiznackboys, Where Lance Rocks hard a Moto, and Keith Rocks a Moto but not as good as Lance. (I’m made it with the Alpha/Beta/Omega Dynamics, cuz why not, and it would be Alpha Lance, Omega Keith. I haven’t just found any fic where Lance is an Alpha. Besides, I drew Lance being the top most bad ass asshole I could ever do, But, Hey! Keith is sexy too and he makes a good Omega for Lance. Don’t Judge!!) An AU where Voltron it is a Academy with high Tech. Where they make Trials and quest. Shiro is the best Motorcyclist of them all. Lance is second and since Keith just moved in Voltron Academy he would need to beat all theses top Motofuckers including Shiro and Lance, but there are going to be some difficulties with Lance, more than he expected. (Also, since it is in space, I wanted to draw Keith like a Galra too, but I ran out of time.) Anyway, I was going to make more drawings yesterday, but I ran out of time, cuz I needed to sleep early for school. I will post more artworks of this AU, cuz I’m a big sucker for Motorcycles, besides I really like it. If anyone makes a motorcycle AU, please tell me!

anonymous asked:

Hi there! Do you have any long, slow-burn fics to recommend? It's okay if you don't, thanks :)

Ooooh thank you for the request! Many of my favorite fics ever are long slow-burns!

Wild by Seefin (93K)- “No,” Harry said, by way of greeting. Malfoy’s blonde head rose slowly, carelessly. “Get out.”
“I feel as though we’ve already established this, Potter,” Malfoy responded. “And I feel that what we established was that you telling me to get out of places really doesn’t make me more likely to vacate them.”

This is a really really REALLY lovely fic in which Draco shows up one day to complete his potions studies at the house in the Irish countryside where Harry lives with several amazing badass OC girls. At first they (drarry) don’t get along at all and it’s so fun to watch them come together! This fic also contains some Linny, which I love <3 Also Seefin is an amazing author in general and you should honestly read every one of their other fics as well (hi @seefin, you don’t know me but i love you!)

What We Pretend We Can’t See by gyzym (131K)- Seven years out from the war, Harry learns the hard truth of old history: it’s never quite as far behind you as you thought.
I read this fic relatively recently and within the first 10,000 words I knew it was my new number one favorite fic, and I WAS RIGHT. I can’t even explain what makes this fic so good besides just flailing about how incredibly well-written and compelling and hilarious it is. Draco has bought Grimmauld Place (which is sentient!) and turned it into a museum, and Harry is an auror who needs to track down whoever is mysteriously after Draco. A few months later and I still can’t get over this fic and how WONDERFUL it is.

Mental by sara_holmes (186.5K)- Harry has had quite enough of sharing his mind with someone else, thankyouverymuch. A miscast Legilimecy spell says otherwise.
This is also one of my favorites of all time (again, read everything by this author if by some miracle you haven’t already). Draco and Harry get stuck with a mental bond (!!!yes!!!) which makes it really hard for them to hide things from each other. At first they can’t control it but eventually they can, and the moment they first use it willingly was just SO GREAT. Really, the whole fic is just so great.

Heartache by Bixgirl1 (25.5K)- “Harry doesn’t think about Malfoy anymore. Not really. Not intentionally. What if the one person you least expect is the only one who really understands what you’ve gone through?
Does this count as long? Regardless, you should read this one because when I made notes on what I thought of it, I wrote “slow and sweet,” and I stand my that assessment. There is lots of hurt/comfort and the getting together is lovely and gradual. For more wonderful hurt/comfort slow-burn, you should definitely also see her fic Balance, Imperfect (91,000 words) in which Draco is Harry’s physiotherapist. But it’s been recced a lot recently so I thought I’d give one of her older fics some love too! (also this is my second @bixgirl1 rec in one day; I’m clearly obsessed)

Domestic by frostywonder (55K)- Harry finds a stray and decides to take him home.
Draco is down on his luck, so what’s Harry to do but take him in? As you can guess from the title, there is tons of domesticity in this fic, and it’s just so cute and there are TONS of truly hilarious moments (including one of my favorite gems ever about Malfoy bowel-movements). They live together, it’s a secret, Draco learns to cook… what more could you ask for? This one just makes me feel so warm and fluffy, I’ve probably read it at least three times.

All Life is Yours to Miss by Saras_Girl (114.5K)- Professor Malfoy’s world is contained, controlled, and as solitary as he can make it, but when an act of petty revenge goes horribly awry, he and his trusty six-legged friend are thrown into Hogwarts life at the deep end and must learn to live, love and let go.
I you haven’t already read everything by Saras Girl, you are insanely lucky and you should go get started right now. She has many long fics and they are all incredible. This one is one of my favorites, because the boys are Professors and Draco has the most amazing pet (giant) beetle who is full of personality and named Stanley. But I probably should also link to the Foundations!verse because it is VERY good and VERY VERY slow-burn. Like, I was shocked that my interest was held for so long without so much as a kiss but IT WAS.

All Our Secrets Laid Bare by firethesound (149.5K)- Over the six years Draco Malfoy has been an Auror, four of his partners have turned up dead. Harry Potter is assigned as his newest partner to investigate just what is going on.
I feel like I’m only recommending the ones everyone has already read anyway, but that’s because they’re the best, so can you blame me?! Draco’s auror partners keep mysteriously dying and Harry can’t get along with any of his, so they are thrown together! The quintessential auror partners fic, with an amazing evolution from not-trusting-each-other to friends to lovers and TONS OF UST.

Bond by AnnaFugazzi (173.5K)- I started to write this before HBP came out, and crossed my fingers that HBP wouldn’t make it totally non-canon. No such luck, I’m afraid. This, therefore, is an AU story, where (SPOILER) still teaches (SPOILER), (SPOILER) didn’t try to (SPOILER), (SPOILER) didn’t succeed in (SPOILER), (SPOILER) never dated (SPOILER), and most importantly, (MAJOR ENDING SPOILERS) never happened.
You’ve all read Bond, right? It’s a (possibly THE?) classic— well— bonding fic. I’ll include it just in case you haven’t heard of it by some miracle (or maybe you want to read it again because last time you were like 15 years old?). The kissing happens kind of early but the romance isn’t until later so I think it still qualifies as slow-burn?

ANYWAY, I hope you find at least one fic on this list that you haven’t read already? They’re all seriously amazing in my opinion (no lukewarm recs from me!) so you can’t go wrong!

Do you have any tips for creating portfolios to get into art/animation programs?? Like I rly rly want to be able to go to art school but it stresses me out when I read about portfolios cause I have no idea where to start and I feel like I won't be good enough in time cause I'm in grade ten and have like never done any life drawing??? So I need any advice you can give sorry if I'm bothering you

I can’t speak for animation programs since i only applied to a fine arts program (i can imagine applying for animation would be totally different), but i’ll give u some tips based on what worked for me:

1. dont overload ur portfolio. i would pick ur 10 best pieces, 15 tops. u wanna show em that ur decisive

1. people are interested in variety!!!! in medium AND in subject matter. Try to include all the different materials u are proficient in, even if its not the specific area u want to major in (this applied for me, anyway– i was applying to my school’s fine arts program which included ALL the art majors, so even though i wanted to major in graphic design i still put a bunch of traditional media pieces and sculpture in my portfolio).

As far as subject matter, i would suggest including a mix of observational and experimental pieces, but make it overall more observational-heavy. So that’d be still life, figure drawing, landscape, self portrait, et cetera. u can still include a few experimental pieces to show them u know how to be creative, but i think observational drawing skills and principles are really important to admissions people. u want to show them that u know how to draw more than one thing and that u dont rely on artistic crutches

2. I took a “portfolio boot camp” class at one of the schools i was interested in the summer before I applied. It was basically a course where u made a different piece each week – all observational stuff, to help pad out ur portfolio. This was SUPER useful bc it gave me an opportunity to do things i wouldnt have gotten a chance to do on my own, like a long-pose figure drawing. If u are able to, i’d check and see if there are any portfolio prep classes near u, in case u wanna feel Extra Prepared

3. even if u cant take a portfolio class, it’s still totally doable to build a varied portfolio all on ur own. if u want a figure drawing, see if u can convince a friend to model for u for a few hours (or bribe them with food). u can even model for urself in the mirror. go into ur backyard and draw a landscape or ur neighbors’ houses. arrange some random objects in a pile and throw some nice lighting on it. Go Nuts™

4. u have SO MUCH time do not worry. i didnt even start purposefully building my portfolio until a few months before i applied places. dont worry u got this

sorry i cant give more advice im in the middle of something BUT!!! i believe in u anon. lmk if u have any more specific questions

Jay and Rosie,5,(twins), Luton, England. Transgender boy and Cisgender girl. Part 2. 

3.How did you or your child express it? Can you recount that experience?

Mostly it would come up when he was addressed with female pronouns, from around 3.5 he started correcting people and we would pretend to laugh it off, telling people to just go with it. He asked to only wear boys clothes soon after his 4 th birthday – the feminist in me was a little jarred by my kid thinking there are ‘boys’ clothes and ‘girls’ clothes after all of my attempts to raise them thinking otherwise haha! But he wanted to be perceived as male, so off to the shops we went. Then one day when Jay was almost 4.5 we were in the car and he said out of the blue “Mummy, can you ask people to stop calling me ‘she’ and ‘her’ now, it makes me sad.” This was the real turning point, we had to make a decision to support him and to change pronouns, up until then it was ‘just’ clothes and he was ‘just’ a tomboyish girl. At that stage he hadn’t mentioned a name change, so we had an awkward (for me! Jay was overjoyed at us using ‘he’ and ‘him’!) a few months of using his birth name alongside male pronouns. Then in May this year he asked why we had called him Lily; we explained that when I was pregnant and the doctors looked into my tummy to check the babies were okay, that they told us we were having two girls, so we chose names that are usually given to girls and that went together – Rose and Lily. We told him Lily could be a boy’s name because he was a boy, but he decided he would like a name which would be seen as a boy’s name, and settled on Jay (J for John, like daddy’s name).

4. Jay says he is so happy to be addressed using his male name and pronouns, sometimes he gets a little sad at being misgendered (he has long hair) but mostly he is happy to just correct people and carry on. He loves knowing that people who are important to him see him as male, and absolutely beams when those he loves most use male orientated terms of endearment. He will sometimes seek reassurance from me that everyone in our lives definitely knows he’s a boy, and when I confirm again that they do, I can see how happy that makes him.

5. Almost everyone has been supportive, including some people who admit they don’t understand but want to fully support us anyway. The main area we felt we were lacking in support was from our church. We would have liked to have been given the opportunity to try and educate them, and feel that had we been able to do so there were people who were open to hearing us out. But unfortunately the leadership –whilst mixed in opinions – overall, decided that the best they could do was avoid pronoun use at all. We felt after 3 years at this church and with friendships involved, this didn’t go far enough, and that we should have been able to address the church as a whole to give people the chance to ask questions and learn about our situation. We gave the leadership an ultimatum – we would leave if Jay couldn’t be supported fully – and so in the end we had to move to a different church. Not long after that, Jay requested his name be changed from his birth name to Jay, and our new church community embraced his chosen name with so much love and acceptance. Some of our family have struggled to get their heads around the idea but wouldn’t want to upset Jay, so are trying to be supportive. Our network of friends has been incredibly accepting and almost everyone we know uses his correct name and pronouns without any slip ups – including all of the children, who have taken it in their stride!

I was wondering about how open the characters are about their sexualities and gender identities and such. I mean, p much everyone isn't a straight cis person, but is everyone aware of that? In this universe, is that chill, or is the friendgroup just a bubble of being awesome even tho the school doesn't know, or what? Also- have you ever made a post with all the character's identities/disabilities before??? Ok, sorry to bother you, and I LOVE this comic!!! The art and story is gorg and engaging ❤

 hello  ❤

ngl,  I didn’t initially want to discuss their MIs, sexualities and gender, because I didn’t want people thinking it’s being romanticized, or that the characters would be reduced to naught but.. their gender/mental illness. But. Still. Representation is important and I am. So tired of mentally ill characters being demonized dude.  

I kinda thought their school would be, all liberal? It’s a big fancy schmancy school where nobody.. Really cares what you do with your life, so long as you don’t bother ‘em. But that’s just most of the students. (not all.) 

So. let’s start with Dallas. He’s trans, but he’s passing. He doesn’t struggle with being misgendered a lot, since he A. Doesn’t really talk much in the first place, and he talks in a really, tired, Jane-Lane-season-1 mumble.But y’know, the more observant people Talk, since middleschool, he’s changed A Lot. Tl;dr, Dallas is not out to anyone he’s not close to, just the rest of the baseball team, Mr. Beaumont (Tyler’s dad, and their geometry teacher), Coach Williams, and, maybe, Wendy. 

Dallas is bisexual, he has psychotic depression and dyscalculia. Established that his therapist is a massive douchewad, there’s probably something else that’s gone undiagnosed. (something along the lines of dependent personality disorder, and etc)

Malek, there’s always names for People Like Malek. He’s unabashedly pansexual. He’d really date anyone who can make him smile. He’s out to everyone, (that includes his aunt’s live-in boyfriend.)

Malek has anxiety that often gets dismissed because he doesn’t show signs of being mentally ill. 

Poppy is not out to her parents. She’s out do Dev, and the rest of the school knows she’s bisexual. She doesn’t have a filter, and she says what she wants, and then afterwards she feels terrible to have acted like a jerk. She’s a real soft, good kid inside. She has BPD, and ngl, I wrote her to have struggled with ED when she was a bit younger. 

Jonas/Parker is autistic. I’ve talked about him and Dallas’ disabilities here. He’s bisexual, but he is not out to anyone but Phoebus and Tyler. I think he could be interpreted as someone who has PTSD from abusive parents, but I need to do much more research on this.

Ari is nonbinary. They’re not out to anyone except the baseball team. They use any pronouns. He/She/They, it don’t matter for a nihilist like Ari. They have AVPD, and it’s pretty hard for them to open up to.. Anyone at all. It’s Just Hard. They tend to lash out on people. 

Phoebus is an amputee. He’s had a rough tumble with osteosarcoma, but he’s alive, and it’s all that matters. Sometimes he gets tired, he uses a wheelchair. He has depression, but, like Malek, it tends to get forgotten because he doesn’t show signs of being mentally ill. He’s pansexual, and he’s out to everyone.

Blake is gay and a cocktail of undiagnosed cluster B personality disorders. He’s too afraid of seeing a therapist, He is not out to anyone outside of the baseball team, but People Talk. 

Ben is HoH. Dallas is his bi awakening. I think he has ADHD and PTSD, but I’m still reading into it.  For Spoiler-y Reasons, I Can’t Disclose Too Much.

Sara is lesbian. She doesn’t care about people knowing, but she only tells people when boys hit on her. Again, I can’t disclose too much about her personality without it being too spoiler-y!

Tyler has OCD. At the moment, he’s assumed he was straight up until he let himself get close to Blake. Blake makes him feel all sorts of wiggly and angry things in his stomach. He wants to kiss Blake but he also wants to punch Blake in the head sometimes. His Feelings Need a lot of work. What’s it to have a crush on anyone anyway. He’s too young to be in love, and his greatest fear is to end up like his dad, divorced, always sitting late at night in a boring old office, disgruntled and malcontent, cursing while grading some dumbass’ paper. He’s not out to anyone, and everyone, including himself, assumes he’s straight.

okay so im brand new to mythology and basically know nothing about it so where is like a good place to start?? is there books on it or? like how to learn about the myths and all that? sorry if this is bothersome i just wanna get into it but have no idea where to begin

Oh goodness, where to begin? It really depends what type of mythology you wish to learn about, as each culture has their own mythology, their own gods, etc. I learnt about Greek mythology first, which was pretty good because it’s very well known and there are many resources you can look at, and it got me enthusiastic to learn more about other myths (I then went on to read about Roman, Egyptian, Norse, Aztec, African, Japanese & Chinese, etc) - you might like to try that.

Below are some resources to learn about mythology you may find useful.



I suggest you try some of the great classics/plays/poems. Some I’ve read include The Iliad, The Odyssey, Medea, Metamorphoses, Bacchae. Here’s a great list of classic literature such as these. Also:

If you are a little nervous about reading something that may seem tedious (don’t worry, it’s happened to the best of us!) you can try some awesome adaptions of myths - they can be easier to read with a contemporary writing style. Maybe once you’ve read them you can try the classics!

  • The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller (really good alternative to The Iliad - about the Trojan War & Achilles)
  • The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood (Odysseus’ wife)
  • The King Must Die by Mary Renault (Theseus)
  • The Dark Wife by Sarah Diemer (Hades and Persephone but Hades is a female)
  • Tales of The Greek Heroes by Rick Riordan, Roger Lancelyn Green

All the above are based on Greek myth, but if you want non-Greek myth novels Maddie made some good recommendations. There is also a good long list of myth literature here, and a masterpost of mythology fiction here.

Also try reading non-fiction! You can find non-fiction books about mythology in most bookstores, but if you want specific titles here are some that are known to be good:

Check out Amazon’s mythology section & BookOutlet always has great mythology books at super duper cheap prices.

Film & Media:

Watch movies, documentaries & tv shows! Great entertaining way to get into mythology. I don’t know many decent films but some include Troy, 300, The Trojan Women. I haven’t watched any of them because I prefer to read so I can’t really say how good they are, but you might find them interesting. 

If you want to watch documentaries…

I also can’t say whether they are any good or not - maybe read up about them first to check if they are reliable!

Anyway, that’s all I really have, I hope this is sufficient. Good luck & enjoy!
