Do you think when bakugo and ochako get together they would keep it a secret or would tell people or let them find out on their own?

well i can’t see them actually getting together until they’re adults, so i don’t really see why they’d keep it a secret. maybe from the media or something, but i don’t really see why they’d hide it from their friends

in a completely self indulgent scenario where they date at UA, well…. i imagine that they wouldn’t like. hide it exactly? like i don’t think Bakugou would wanna make it public or obvious b/c he’s still kinda rocky with emotions and he doesn’t want people butting in on his personal business, so he kinda just yells at anyone who asks (”HAAAH? WHAT’S IT TO YA?”)

but i don’t think Ochako would mind all that much? maybe she’d be a little shy when it comes up, or try to steer the convo away b/c she gets all red and embarrassed. but she’d be happy about it and casually mention stuff here and there 

but like…. i don’t think they’d try to actively hide it? like they’d hold hands or share an umbrella or she’d hold his arm in pubic or they’d eat lunch together, etc. casual little things like that. they just wouldn’t want anyone bugging them about it 

(i imagine the boys constantly rag on Bakugou and joke about how on earth he managed to start dating such a sweet, nice girl like Uraraka when he’s such a dick, but it’s all in good fun. Bakugou screams death threats at them every other day. one day someone makes the mistake of suggesting that she’s weak, and he snaps back with a, “She’s fuckin’ stronger than you, asshole.”

Mina and Tooru often ask Ochako what she sees in Bakugou when he’s so……. himself, and Ohcako probably blushes and replies with stumbling words, “Ohh, well, you know, he’s actually kinda nice underneath it all, ya know? Like, okay maybe not nice nice, but he’s nice in his own way, it’s just hard to see sometimes!!” 

“………. Really?” Mina stares in utter disbelief.

“Ahahaha…” Ochako laughs, trying to brush off the awkwardness of the situation aside, “Ya gotta believe me on this! I swear it’s true!! He’s nice in his angry weird yell-y way!! A-and he’s really funny, and a good cook!! And he believes in me!! He helps push me to do my best!!” She said, raising up a fist up for emphasis, a fire burning in her eyes. 

She paused a moment before scratches the back of her neck, laughing weakly, “Ya just gotta trust me on this guys, haha…”

“We’re not doubting you, Ocha-chan,” Tsuyu pipes up, tongue sticking out slightly as she addresses Ochako, “It’s just hard to see Baku-chan be nice is all. Tho I’m sure our lil Baku has his good points too. He’s friends with Kirishima, and he’s dating you. That must mean something.” 

“Yeah, I guess you’re right…” Mina mutters. She quickly perked up however, and leaned over to ask Ochako with a grin, “So… is he a good kisser?”

“U-u-uuhhhhhh…” Uraraka stutters, eyes wide and cheeks burning. Tsuyu gives Mina a disapproving look. “Don’t pressure her into talking.” she croaked.

Mina glances at her disappointingly, but sighs. “Fine, fine. You don’t have to answer.”

silence reigns between them, until Ochako mutters something under her breath, curling over the drink in her hand to hide her red face. Both girls blink, and lean closer curiously. “What was that, Ocha-chan?” Tsuyu asks.

“I-I said… I h-have to… k-k-kiss him. He-he gets too embarrassed to kiss me…” Ochako’s says quietly, voice trembling and looking at them bashfully from under her eyelashes. she glances away and fidgets in her seat.

“O-hoho~” Mina grins widely, like the cat who ate the canary. “Bakugou gets too embarrassed to kiss you? And here I thought he’d be all fierce with romance like he is with fighting!” 

Tsuyu hums. “That is rather surprising. Who knew there was something Baku-chan was nervous about?”

“P-please don’t tell anyone I said that!” Ochako asks, eyes wide and flustered. “He’ll kill me if he knew I told anyone!” 

Well--” Mina protests, before Tsuyu’s tongue lightly smacks her cheek. “No problem, Ocha-chan. We’ll be sure to keep it a secret.”

Mina pouts at Tsuyu, rubbing her cheek slightly, before dramatically sighing, flopping back against the couch. “Fine, fine, I won’t tell anyone. Only for you, Ochako.” She sighed again, “Such good gossip, wasted…”)

Send a word for a drabble

Gymnophoria - The sensation that someone is mentally undressing you.

Frankly, Sadik found the idea that they were even considering an alliance in Europe laughable. Why bother—it was all to belong to them someday anyway. Nevertheless, the idea had piqued the sultan’s interest, and several of the pashas agreed, so Sadik was sent to scope out the most powerful Europeans and see who might make a decent, or at least useful, ally.

Which meant he sat through a lot of fucking masses.

He didn’t know if it was just customary to share church services with a potential ally, or if they were carrying it out for his sake, but it grew old very quickly. Which is why he now sat in Notre Dame, trying not to look openly bored, as the bishop carried out services in Latin, a language Sadik barely understood.

He had been fighting the urge to look around the room for a while, as he had been seated in the first pew, so everyone would see, and know that he wasn’t paying attention. Eventually, he decided on just a quick peek to the side, that could possibly be construed as him stretching his neck a little. That was when he noticed France wasn’t paying attention either.

He had always seemed the devout little Catholic, but he wasn’t watching the bishop, at least not in this moment—he was looking at Sadik. When their eyes met, he hastily turned his attention front again, and Sadik squinted, trying to tell if his face looked pinker than usual.

That was better—now he had a game to play.

“Rasheed,” he murmured to the man beside him, without turning. “Tell me if the little Frank is looking at us.” It was a few moments before he had a response.

“He is looking, Your Excellency.” A smile quirked the corner of Sadik’s mouth.

“How is he looking?” A long pause as Rasheed tried to work out a good answer.

“He looks…intent.”

“Mm intent on what, I wonder?” There was a pointed cough from the pew behind them, and Sadik stopped talking. He nudged Rasheed with his shoulder, and received a return for each time he noticed Francis looking at them.

At the end of the service, Sadik stood and stretched, and sought out his potential ally as the nobility of Paris began to clear out.

“You know, I was under the impression your services were to cleanse and purify the mind,” he observed to Francis with a smug look. The younger Nation lifted his chin and gave Sadik an imperious huff.

“They are,” he said. “But I imagine they hold somewhat less interest for you.”

“How do you expect your mind to be purified for the coming week, if you spend the whole service undressing me with your eyes?” Blue eyes flew open wide and France was definitely redder than he had been a moment ago.

Sadik had dressed ornately for the occasion, both as a sign of respect for the religious service and to show off his grand wealth to his potential allies. He had a lot of things to take off—enough to occupy France for a three-hour mass.

“You are mist—”

“Save your protestations,” Sadik said, lifting his palm up. “I’ll take it as a compliment.” Francis grasped for words, and Sadik’s smile grew a fraction. “Don’t feel bad,” he said smoothly. “I understand the allure of the exotic. After all, what tastes better than the forbidden fruit?”

cosmic witchcraft 101: asteroid belt magick 💫

The asteroid belt is a region of space between Mars and Jupiter where millions of asteroids orbit the Sun. In the 18th century, astronomers began to look for patterns in the layout of our solar system’s planets; one such pattern spurned the creation of a hypothesis, although later discredited, called the Titius-Bode law. The Titius-Bode law suggested that there should be a planet somewhere between Mars and Jupiter, so a group of astronomers called the United Astronomical Society, sometimes known as the Celestial Police, set out to find this missing planet.

Although they discovered Ceres, a dwarf planet, and many asteroids, an actual planet was nowhere to be found. When the solar system was forming, there was more than enough material for a planet to form in this region; however, Jupiter’s massive gravitational influence prevented the gas and dust from forming into anything substantial enough to be considered a planet.

Facts:

  • The asteroid belt is primarily made of empty space; its combined mass is only about 4% of the Moon’s.
  • Most asteroids are made of rock and stone, though some are known to have metals such as iron and nickel.
  • There are three main categories of asteroids: c-types, carbonaceous, rocky asteroids; m-types, metallic or metal-rich asteroids; and s-types, asteroids with lots of silicates, which are made of oxygen, silicon, and other elements.
  • Vesta, Pallas, and Hygiea are the most massive asteroids in the asteroid belt.
  • Ceres makes up about 1/3 of the belt’s mass.
  • About 1/3 of asteroids are a part of an asteroid family. Families are categorized based on similarities in their orbital elements such as their semi-major axis, spectral features, eccentricity, etc. Asteroids that come from the same family may have originated from larger objects that collided and exploded.
