but well i hope you like them anyway

anonymous asked:

Hiya! Not sure if you're still working on Rough Trade, but were you planning on ending it on a sad note? I read all your old prompts and it seemed like Henri was working his way back into Eames' life... Anyway, love your story loads and loads! Hope you're doing well!

Hi! Here is the thing about me, I am kind of a huge marshmallow. I’m aware that I put my characters through a lot… but there will always be closure and, most likely, a happy ending. Like I was just reading an adorable Jyn/Cassian Rogue One AU, and I looked at the sequels, and… it ends with them breaking up!! What rude person would go through all the trouble of setting them up together only for them to end up with some kind of irreconcilable differences?! Look, I read and write fic to get away from stupid reality. I do not need stupid realism in my fics. (Aside from which, everyone who’s seen Rogue One surely knows that Jyn and Cassian complete each other and would never break up. IT’S TRUE IF I SAY IT IS)

This ask made me think about Henri, and why I know he is not the right guy for Eames and why I think Eames knows that too. He tends to look back at their relationship with rose-coloured glasses. And I mean, they WERE happy. But I have always felt, for sure, they wouldn’t have been happy in the long-term. The thing about Henri, I think, is that he’s just a liar. He wouldn’t think of himself as one. He’s more of a liar by omission. I know I mentioned, at some point in The Bridge, was that the one thing that really annoyed Eames about him was that he would always do whatever’s easiest. It was easier not to tell Eames he cheated, so he didn’t. And the more I think about Henri, the more I think that his life plans didn’t actually line up with Eames’. He wanted easy and Eames didn’t. Eames wanted career moves and kids and complicated things. I don’t think Henri wanted those things. Eames might have been able to drag him along into those things, but it wouldn’t be by choice. I suspect he just hoped Eames would come around and decide they were already happy the way they were. So whenever Eames talked about their future, Henri would gently deflect him, or just nod along.

Don’t let this reflect badly on Eames; they did exist quite happily so long as there was no pressure on Henri to change anything. Henri is ultimately a kind person and was probably a very good boyfriend, cheating aside. But he’s a liar and he doesn’t like change. (Ironically, Eames leaving him is probably what spurred Henri to finally start changing.) Also, I don’t think Eames will ever truly be able to forgive him for the heartache he caused.

Arthur is also a good boyfriend when he (finally) is not overworked. And Eames now knows the importance of clear and open communication in a relationship (see Sib’s fic!). He knows better than to go back to Henri. So Rough Trade will NOT ever end on a sad note, should I ever produce more drabbles. I hope that’s a good answer. :)

Other Chapters:

Growing Up Chapter 1
Growing Up Chapter 3: Page 1 & 2

Anyway thanks again!

This time I made some A-spec rockets to explore the endless depths of spACE! Who knows, maybe they will find some new worlds and spread their amACEingness to newly discovered civilizations!

Like the other times, I made a asexual, aromantic, demisexual, demiromantic, gray-asexual, and gray-aromantic version of the rockets which is each transparent. 

You all can use them as you feel but please mention that I have made those : ]

Part 1:  I’ve had this blog for a little over a year, and it truly is one of my biggest sources of happiness. I’ve gotten the chance to make wonderful friends, and join fandoms I never thought I would. Even though this blog had many many rough patches throughout, all the good times by far takes the win. Not only was I able to show my support to all the groups I love, I was also able to spread my support to many other fans as well, and I feel like thats a great accomplishment. Not only that, this blog has support from over 10 thousand of you!! Something I definitely don’t deserve. Anyways, this follow forever is me saying thank you to all the people who have blessed my dash with beautiful posts, talked to me when I needed them the most, and just supported me despite all the things that happened. Thank you, and I hope all of you are staying safe and healthy. <3

and thank you @changkyuh for the beautiful graphic. I love you!!! <33333 

(bolds are mutuals- I probably missed a lot of you since I follow a lot of sideblogs, and also many of them don’t show up in my search so I wasn’t able to check if we’re mutuals. Sorry in advance!)

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).

MORE RIDICULOUS STUFF BELOW!

Yeah, I’m gonna have to order one myself, haha they look pretty cool! We’ll see how well they do I guess, maybe in the future they’ll consider other Youtubers as well. I actually have no idea but it would be neat to see them! Hope people will like this one anyway :)

Jesus Christ - Brand New

“THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR COMING OUT TO SEE ME TONIGHT, LONDON!” Phil screamed into the microphone, his ears nearly bursting with the chanting of the crowd before him: thousands of listeners (he refused to call them his fans) cheering for him and the rest of his indie rock band, Runaway Sky. The fact that this many people came to see them always made a warm feeling erupt in his chest.

See, Phil wasn’t the typical famous person that most people looked up to. He saw himself as an average guy who just happened to have a nice voice. He didn’t have beautiful hair like David Beckham or rock hard abs like Chris Evans. He was just Phil, a twenty-two year old with a black fringe who had a liking for skinny jeans and always wore a mask on stage.

Omega Headcanons

-Omegas are very motherly even before they actually become mothers. In their friend group the Omega is almost always the “mom friend” who makes sure everyone is happy and full and well rested, always the first person anyone goes to when a problem occurs

-Omegas are generally very petite and while a lot of them are bitter about it, others embrace the hell out of it. Using their small stature as an excuse to make their big Alpha friends carry them around or get them things that are high up on shelves

-Omegas love soft and cozy things, always wearing soft sweaters or wrapping up in warm blankets. Fuzzy socks are also very much loved by Omegas

-An Omega who is always cold constantly clinging to their big warm Alpha. Walking down the street and smoothly slipping under the Alpha’s arm and snuggling into their side as they walk, or seeing the Alpha sitting on the couch so they go and climb onto their lap and cuddle up against their warm chest. The Alpha loving how cuddly and dependent their mate is

-An incredibly innocent and sheltered Omega who hasn’t even had their first heat yet, not understanding when their Omega friends are talking about knotting and instead of explaining anything to their very clueless friend, they suggest the Omega ask their Alpha friend about it who they know has a crush on the Omega. So the Omega of course goes and very bluntly asks the Alpha to explain knotting and the Alpha is instantly bright red but trying to stutter out a mature and helpful explanation and once they finally finish the Omega is very quiet for a minute and then, “oh so you could knot me because you’re an Alpha” and the Alpha just dies

-Young Omegas being possessive of their friends and low-key becoming anxious whenever their friend makes a new friend because they feel like they are being replaced

-Omegas usually have a self sacrificing nature, which makes them good mothers, and they always make sure the ones they love have everything they need even if it means they have to go without

-Between being very smart and very nurturing, Omegas are well suited for being teachers and tutors. Always encouraging and having the patience to help someone who is struggling with basic concepts

-An Omega having a very close bond with their Omega sibling. Always looking for some kind of physical reassurance from them like holding hands in busy public places or cuddling up in a nest together when one of them is sad

-An Omega who is really nervous and shy and only really comfortable with their Alpha, to the point where if they are out with people and the Omega wants to say something they will lean up to whisper it to their Alpha who will then tell the group for them

Finally, the Evanuris fanart I was working on for weeks is over! God it was hard but I did it! (even my computer crashed a lot because the file was too heavy)
Anyway, I hope you’ll like my interpretation of the elven gods. While drawing them, I had lots of ideas about their respective personnalities.
If you want to know more about them, just ask away! I’ll be glad to answer and draw as well! :)

“Come on, hyung, we know you like (Y/N), just admit it,” Taehyung complained to Yoongi for the hundredth time. Yoongi rolled his eyes, refusing to look at the younger boy as he worked on their newest song. Jimin pushed the back of his chair lightly, trying to force him to turn his attention towards them.

Yoongi continued clicking at random things on the screen in an attempt to reinforce the point that he was not going to pay any attention to them. However, he also knew that the 95liners would never give up that easily, even with him. After five more minutes of the boys pestering him, he finally spun around to glare at them with a completely serious face. “I don’t like him. Well, I do, but as a friend and co-worker. He is a good worker. That is all,” he insisted. Taehyung and Jimin let out a sigh of defeat. The could tell they weren’t going to get anywhere with him.

nct reaction: telling you they still like you when you’re married

Can I request a Hyungline NCT reaction to you waking them up in the middle of the night and asking them if they still like you and you’re MARRIED to them like wtf right lol. anyway thanks in advance!

i’ve actually never done reactions before so let’s hope this goes well lol. 


Taeil:

Originally posted by smboys

Taeil would sit up in bed and repeatedly shake his head as he tells you that he loves you lots. You keep asking him and he repeatedly tells you, “Yes, Y/N, I like you, otherwise we wouldn’t be married!” Constantly reassuring you it was simply a bad dream, he gives you a kiss on the lips and the two of you then go back to bed. 

Hansol:

Originally posted by 94ten

Hansol wouldn’t quite understand what’s going on. You’re married after all, and although there are times when you doubted yourself because he’s not really the type to actively show that he loves you, he always makes sure to let you know how much you mean to him. Kisses, cuddles, and even Aegyo™ he hates doing it but for you he’d do it as many times as you like until he sees that smile on your face. 

Johnny:

Originally posted by bluesuh

Being the jokester that he is, the first thing Johnny does is laugh. He’d be all “LOL Y/N you woke me up just to ask if I still like you???” All laughter fades aside though when he sees that you’re seriously asking him such a question. He’ll bundle you up in his arms and murmur one thousand and one reasons why he married you and all the things he likes about you, doing so until you gradually fall back asleep from hearing his comforting voice. 

Taeyong:

Originally posted by zions

Taeyong would sit up in bed immediately the moment you woke up in the middle of the night, asking what was wrong and listening to you attentively as you asked him whether he still liked you. Taking your hand in his, he’d kiss your cheek softly and promise you that he married you for you, that he will always love you and never abandon you no matter what the circumstances are. Not to be that person, but there will probably be a bit of Deep Talk™ before the two of you go back to sleep–he wants to see all your insecurities gone and the best way for that is to talk it out so that there won’t be any misunderstandings in your marriage and relationship. 

Yuta: 

Originally posted by nakamotens

Yuta wouldn’t quite take you seriously at first because he’s not one to shy away from showing you that he loved you, whether it be hugs or kisses and other acts of affection. Such a question would baffle him, so after asking you to elaborate he’d coo and call you a cutie for thinking such silly things. He’d lowkey sass you too, “Of course I love you, if I hated you then we wouldn’t be married!” You’d slap him but then one flash of the healing smile and yup, you loved this man and he was totally in love with you too if he had this much energy late at night to sass you for it. 

Ten: 

Originally posted by nctuhohahyes

This sweetiepie would be freaking out when you wake up suddenly at night, eyes wide and asking you what was wrong. When you ask him if he still liked you, a loud “OF COURSE!” is his instant response. Like Johnny, he’d then ramble about why he loved you and you two will then go on a trip down memory lane, laughing at all the fond memories you made together as newlyweds and interesting anecdotes such as the time he nearly cut his finger off chopping carrots and the time you completely destroyed the 7th sense choreo by making your own version of it and accidentally sending it to all the other members of NCT, making a fool out of yourself in the process haha.

Doyoung: 

Originally posted by yonges

Doyoung is a bit brash, so his first reaction would be something along the lines of “that’s stupid why would you think i don’t like you?” But he’ll quickly convince you that he didn’t mean to sound so harsh, peppering you with kisses here and there and making you laugh with puns and a mini Vroom Vroom segment vroom vroom is the shit ok. You shove him away at his silly antics but appreciate at his efforts to cheer you up. 

@warmestbloggerever asked me to write something with Nico turning three years old again for some reason, and Will having to take care of him. Sorry, this is late, but I hope you like it!

You should all check out her blog, ‘cause she’s great!


Will Solace decided he had enough of the gods using demigods as toys to be played with whenever they were bored. He kind of wanted to go up to Olympus and yell at them, although he didn’t think he would be received well if he did.

Not that he had time to do that now, anyway, seen as he had to take care of a toddler. A toddler with dark hair and big dark eyes the color of melted chocolate. A toddler that was also his boyfriend, or what used to be his boyfriend, anyway. A grown boy (although he hadn’t exactly grown that much and still perfectly fit into Will’s arms. When the world felt a little too big, a little too much, Will’s arms were grounding and warm and safe) that talked easily and with full sentences. This kid was very, very small and did not speak full sentences. Well, fortunately Will had always been good with kids and with all the work in the infirmary he knew how to stay calm under extreme circumstances, which lead him to not freak out this morning.

This morning Will woke up to the laughter, groans and chatter of his siblings in the Apollo cabin. Every morning there felt like a new beginning and there was no room for morning grumpiness, which wasn’t exactly surprising when you put a group of children of the sun god together. The bright smiles and personalities chased whatever bad feelings you’re having away. And so, Will got ready that morning, happily joining when his siblings broke into an impromptu singalong/dance-party. He got dressed, brushed his teeth, quickly raked a hand through his messy hair, stepped into the bright sunlight.

He was still humming when he knocked on his boyfriend’s cabin door. When he got no response, he assumed Nico was still in the shower or something so he decided to head over to get breakfast and save a seat for Nico. But then he heard a noise coming from inside that sounded a lot like a sob.

‘Nico?’, Will called, but he got no response. Now, he was sure he hadn’t imagined the sound. It happened again. He carefully put a hand on the knob and pushed the door open. He peeked his head inside and at first he didn’t see anything different, he didn’t even see Nico in the dark. He squinted his eyes and after a couple second they adjusted to the darkness and he was able to make out a figure bundled in the blankets and sitting far in the corner of the bed that was pushed against a wall, knees pulled up and letting out heartbreaking sobs. Will had heard Nico cry, though, and although it was heartbreaking, it wasn’t the same as this.

Will stepped closer to the bed. The floor squeaked and the boy looked up with wide eyes. Eyes as big and beautiful and the exact same shade of magical brown as Nico’s. Will inhaled sharply when he noticed that, yes, his eyes were the same – he would recognize those eyes even in the dark – but this boy was decidedly not Nico. Or, at least, not the Nico Will knew and loved. This boy must be around three or four years old. How Nico had turned into a three-year old overnight, was something that Will did not comprehend and it made his head spin with such force he thought it might fall off. But, as mentioned earlier, all the years Will had spent working in the infirmary, had given him the ability to act quickly and be surprised later.
