Here’s the ryuji & yusuke roommates au literally no one asked for but you’re getting it anyway

>So how the hell does a starving artist end up rooming with an athelete-turned-punk
>The answer is right there in the question
>Yusuke is absolutely incapable of taking care of himself
>Ryuji can’t stand it
>Basically, once they all graduate, Ryuji & Yusuke are the only ones who choose not to go to college
>Well, it’s more like Ryuji hasn’t figured out what to do with his life so he’s taking a year off (he’s gonna go to college eventually he’s gotta do his momma proud) while Yusuke is taking a few courses at a nearby university, just like Futaba is (tho she’s only going as mandatory [read: Makoto] socializing practice)
>Except while Sojiro is covering Futaba’s expenses, Yusuke can barely manage to cover art AND school expenses. He forgoes eating most days.
>And it’s pretty pitiful, you know. Sojiro offered Akira’s old space when Yusuke moved out of the school dorms, but Yusuke kept burning the curry and weirding out customers, so it pretty quickly became “as soon as you find another place, please leave”
>Ryuji took pity. Say what you will about him, but Ryuji ain’t the type to not lend a helping hand. Besides, he’s been (surprise!) saving up for a place of his own for a few years already, so he’s down to have a roommate.
>Do you know how bad of an idea this turns out to be.
>Futaba bugs their apartment so she can keep track of this disaster
>She runs a blog about it
>It’s famous. And has spawned like 3 memes
>The first month isn’t too bad. Ryuji works 2 jobs so he’s gone most of the time, & Yusuke somehow manages to keep his artistic endeavors to his side of the apartment (they share a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom with as much living space as you’d expect from a Tokyo apartment)
>Ryuji also does all the cooking. He figured out how early on, since his mom was usually out at work until dusk. Ryuji can’t cook anything fancy, & they usually just end up with veggie hotpot or ramen, but Yusuke is quick to compliment Ryuji’s skill (“And here I thought running was your only talent.” “…Thanks?????”)
>But then rent comes up
>And dividing up chores
>Things self-destruct from there
>Neither of them are the cleanlinest of people. They both prefer letting their stuff clutter in a corner or spread out on the floor. But when Yusuke’s clutter gets on Ryuji’s side or vice versa. Bitch it’s on.
>Also Yusuke almost never pays rent. He gets paid pretty well whenever his art is sold, but that’s rare & Yusuke refuses to get a job. Yusuke also does work on commission, but that requires /a lot/ of string-pulling from their friends.
>Please help these boys
>Their throats are sore from all the fighting
>They do get along sometimes tho. Ryuji gets Yusuke into video games (Yusuke loves visual novels & plays an unhealthy amount of otome). Yusuke gets Ryuji hooked on documentaries, tho Ryuji has an obvious preference for animal docs over the art docs Yusuke watches.
>Also whenever Ryuji has time off, Yusuke can sometimes drag him out of bed to go have some fun at places they both like, such as the planetarium or the monja shop

so i think most of us agree that rey reminds han of luke when she says “i didn’t know there was this much green in all the galaxy” because luke probably said something similar when they arrived to yavin 4 or something right? but like. picture luke commenting about a lake or a river instead. he’s like holy HECK that’s so much water?? and can you imagine him discovering a real shower at the rebel base? “BACK ON MY PLANET WE HAD TO FARM WATER. here you all are just drenching yourselves in it!!! do you think water just falls from the sky????” and someone has to remind him in his distraught state

thatsashayne  asked:

Can we talk about Director Sanvers for a minute cause like, I have this OT3 prompt in my head and it's like, nightly ritual of Person A playing the piano and their partners sitting on the couch listening? And like Person B's head is in Person C's lap and C is playing with B's hair?? Which of our babies do you think would be in each role?? (also no pressure but I love this as a fic idea and can't write it myself so feel free to take it)

Friend, we can always talk about Director Sanvers for a minute. And now these ideas are swirling around my head so I’m giving you some thoughts/headcanons not quite in fic form from the subway (while giving myself carpel tunnel typing on my phone probably), so here goes:

I think Lucy Lane is our piano player/person A. Alex can sing, though unlike Kara “I put the kara in karaoke” Danvers, she’ll kill you if you mention it in public, but I see her skipping piano lessons in favor of staying out and surfing a little longer. And I think Maggie appreciates both of her more musical girlfriends and will rock out on an air guitar and sing along loudly with the radio but is not at all musically gifted. (Is that a self-aware self-insert? The world may never know…) But I can see Lucy having learned piano while taking dance classes growing up just to desperately try to be as good as big sister Lois who was always getting recognized by teachers and dance instructors for her achievements (then secondhand through the “Oh, you’re Lois’ baby sister!” comments she got at the start of every year) and, dammit, Lucy wanted to show that she could do it too and just as well, if not better, even if she was several years younger.

Now partners B and C could go either way. As much as the existing Director Sanvers (and Sanvers) stuff would seem to make Alex person B, thanks to a lovely prompt from @sarcasticallyinspired that I haven’t gotten to yet about the headcanon that Alex and Lucy enjoy playing with Maggie’s long hair because she has so much more of it than they do, I’m making her person C. 

I think Maggie would make them all tea. Alex used to drink coffee to stay up far later than was advisable catching up on medical journals and trying to stay abreast of new developments and trends in the field, but Maggie has insisted “there’s really only one good reason to lose that much sleep at night,” so she makes them herbal tea instead; Alex loves it, but she won’t admit it. Whenever Lucy travels for work, she brings them back a new tea to try.

While Lucy plays, Alex will hum along if she knows the song. Maggie adores it, but she’s careful not to make too big of a deal out of acknowledging it because the first few times she did, Alex got embarrassed and stopped, which was the very last thing Maggie wanted. Now they’re all more comfortable around each other, but Maggie still pretends like she can’t hear the melodious humming, and Alex pretends like the small smile pulling up the corner of Maggie’s mouth is caused by literally anything else.

After days of working the night shift or having to pull doubles or be on call for long stretches of time, Maggie often falls asleep–something Lucy and Alex both tease her about even though they find it beyond adorable. Whenever this happens, Lucy plays longer than she normally would to make sure that Maggie is sleeping soundly enough for Alex to carry her to bed without waking her. This is why they only start their nightly ritual already in pajamas now (because pulling off those impossibly tight skinny jeans was next to impossible, and every time they tried, Maggie would wake up, still half-delirious from sleep, and wiggle her eyebrows and ask if they were trying to start something and to make sure they were going to finish it, thank you very much).

The first time it happened, it wasn’t meant to become a ritual. They’d been out with the full gang of Superfriends when Kara said something about most of the group being really musically talented, then looked over expectantly at Lena and Maggie to see if they had anything to offer in the way of musical talents (or if they’ll be the silent additions to @performativezippers‘ Anonymous Zippers band). Lena shrugs; even though her days in boarding schools left her with basic proficiency in a few instruments, she’d never call herself particularly talented at it. Meanwhile Maggie’s like, “Uh, yeah, of course I can” because she’s a cocky shit, and her girlfriends love the bravado. Only this time they call her on it–they want some proof. So she insists she’ll show them at home (she’s got some joke all lined up about being able to play their bodies perfectly and make them sing, which totally basically counts as being musically gifted). But Kara wants everyone to see, so somehow they end up with an impromptu talent show of sorts in their living room, and Kara and Winn do a duet before Winn tries to rap with James laying down a beat in the background that gets them booed off their impromptu stage. Next up is Lucy who just shrugs and sits down at the piano (shh, I know one doesn’t exist in the current apartment, but the new place they’ve rented to fit all of them and Lucy’s extensive wardrobe, plus all of Alex and Maggie’s leather jackets has one…let’s go with it), and Maggie finds herself shook at just how good she is. Then Alex joins in singing, and Maggie bows out of their musical competition as gracefully as she can before even trying. She only gets her way out of some of the teasing (they can’t let her live it down completely) by promising to be the best fan they’ve ever had. So now every night she gets their tea and sits excitedly on the couch, cheering and clapping and acting as Lucy’s own personal hype-woman before they settle down to listen. 

Anywayyyy hope you enjoy! I’m at my stop now, so I’ve gotta go before the tourists catch me.

I guess i don't understand why it's "fair" of us to constantly call S/C liars. Why can't they just be telling the truth- that they're not together? It's the fandoms projection that we're being "played". but, it could be as simple as they are just living their individual lives. And, if you want to believe they're together because you don't understand why they are with the people they're with- then just own that and take responsibility for it. but, i think we have to stop putting that on S/C

I am a bit confused by your question. 

I do not care if S and C are lying. They do not owe fans the truth about their personal lives. I bet most fans don’t care if they’re lying. We’re upset that when we celebrate any hint of S and C cuteness, we are ridiculed and shamed by powerful people for believing it’s anything more than fan service. 

If we “own” it, what does that mean? Do we accept the doxxing and harassment going on as a logical consequence for believing something different than the “official” narrative? Do we pity the fans that are victims, but believe they had it coming? Do we have to believe some people are “bad fans” because they celebrate a different thing than we do? 

For the record, I don’t think anyone deserves to be doxxed or harassed. Not Shippers, not Antis, not Neutrals. NO ONE DESERVES THAT.

rindearest  asked:

omg caught the ask box open! Hi Mama I just want to ask, can you have too much hobbies? :c I draw, do photography, write, read, play volleyball and play the guitar, and I often don't know which one to do and I can't do all of them in a day ;; My friend tells me to narrow them down to two.... and I can't! But I can't try improving all of them at the same time either ;; Am I over thinking this? Ahhh sorry and thank you so much!!!

I think having lots of hobbies is a great thing! And I don’t think you can have too many. You just need to schedule them properly I guess and take time for each, without rushing to the next. It’s not bad that you can’t do all in a day. Try to see how things fir into your day and adjust. But I also hope you still take time for yourself and don’t pressure yourself too much! That can get pretty bad, so please, take care and if you feel like you can’t do all those hobbies anymore maybe try to do some of them less frequently or just take more time for yourself, cause that’s very important!

Hahahahaha!! Maybe Sam jokes about it a lot, but Steve is too embarrassed to do it (he might feel like he’s taking advantage). So he always tips a lot. I feel like Steve and Tony are always epic tippers 💖

“Hey, can you get me the sugar from the top shelf? … Come on, trust me, I won’t tickle you!” this reminds me of chuuya and dazai bc chuuya is short and can't reach things. could you maybe do a short drabble with soukoku? :>c

Another DOMESTIC/FLUFFY TICKLING STARTERS -fic!This is actually my first time writing for Soukoku<3 

I think they’re cute and I actually have one more prompt for them on my list, I just need to get more into this ship I think, which I will, starting by writing this lil’ drabble! Thnx @ticklygiggles for inspiring me as always psfhdgf*_*

Hope it doesn’t suck too bad XD -takes place when they were still Port Mafia-partners<3 I changed the plot around a bit since I thought the prompt sentence was a typical Dazai-thing to say!

Word Count: 537


“Hey, can you get me the sugar from the top shelf? … Come on, trust me, I won’t tickle you!” 

Chuuya growled and watched his partner with the angriest glare of angry glares. They were making a coffee stop at one of the headquarters’ mini kitchens, and apparently it was time to be childishly teased about his height again.

“Fuck you, Dazai. You know I can’t reach it. Do it yourself,” Chuuya snapped, and Dazai chuckled and shrugged his shoulders. 

“If you can’t get me the sugar I’m afraid I’ll have to tickle you though,” he teased, and he poked Chuuya’s side, eliciting an adorable and uncharacteristic eep! from him. 

Chuuya closed his eyes in annoyance and sighed. The little canteen was too small for a fight- with just one kitchen counter and a coffee machine. 

However, Dazai could easily tickle the hell out of him and having known him for a while now, Chuuya was sure he was doomed right now anyway since there was no way Dazai was serious about not tickling him. Still, least he could do was un-doom himself as much as possible and do as Dazai wanted.

Fine,” he snarled, and he stood on his tiptoes and reached for the sugar. He could barely reach it, but leaning forward a bit more and standing even higher on his tiptoes, he was getting there. Meanwhile, his entire body was tingling in anticipation. 

He glared at Dazai from the corner of his eyes and noticed that mischievous smirk of his as he watched how Chuuya struggled to reach the sugar.

“You’re so tiny, Chuuya,” Dazai sang.

“I hate you,” Chuuya hissed breathlessly, but he almost managed to grab the sugar and he swore he’d make sure to punch Dazai in the face afterwards. 

“You’re almost there,” Dazai said, looking his partner’s stretched out body up and down with that horrible smirk as if he was scanning where to tickle first. Chuuya had to be quick! 

“Got it!” Chuuya’s fingers closed around the tiny bowl and a proud little feeling overwhelmed him. The delight got shattered in an instant though, because the moment he had the sugar bowl in his hand, Dazai’s fingers danced up and down his exposed sides and ribs like he had anticipated. 

A horrifying shriek escaped Chuuya’s lips as he pulled his arm back real fast, throwing the sugar across the room by accident.

“I’m sure you were able to predict as much, weren’t you?” Dazai asked calmly while he kept digging his fingers in the shorter guy’s sides and ribs, causing him to flop and flail around like crazy. 

“HWahaha I’ll fu-fucking kihill youuu!” Chuuya cursed through his hysterical laughter, but no more threats could make it past his lips since another series of snorts and giggles followed.

“Not before I kill you.” And pinning Chuuya’s flailing body against the kitchen counter, Dazai was sure not to miss a single spot that could make his little partner go mad. 

Chuuya whined through his laughter and cursed all he could, but yep, he was pretty much doomed to suffer from Dazai’s well-known guilty pleasure of tickling the hell out of him. Just another day in their lives as Port Mafia partners.

anonymous asked:

If you're willing to, might you write a ficlet in which, during his year journey, Natsu and Happy stumble into a bookstore and can't help but miss Lucy? Or maybe even perhaps find she was able to publish a book? c:

I LOVED this prompt<3

and when i find the time to turn this into a ficlet like you asked, i know exactly what route i’m taking it. oh man oh man(!!) think a combination of this and the nalu FT ending 15(; 

One day, only about halfway into a year since he and Happy had left the guild, Natsu found himself dragging his feet through yet another town where no face was familiar and he knew no ones name. Overhead in the sky, the sun was absolutely sweltering, even to a fire mage such as himself, so he could only imagine how his partner much be feeling. 

Actually, he didn’t really have to imagine it, seeing as how Happy was never one to shy away from voicing an opinion. 

“It’s hot, Natsu,” the Exceed whined, finally dismissing his wings as he instead opted to plop down heavily onto the boy’s head. “Let’s go inside somewhere. Anywhere. Just get me out of this heat!” His words were a bit muffled since he had his face pressed into the dragon slayer’s salmon-colored hair. “This has gotta be some sort of animal abuse.” 

Natsu would have laughed had he not felt just as miserable.

He craned his neck for a place that looked like it could serve them well. On the crowded streets, he managed to maneuver his way around a couple and their giggling child, and very carefully slipped past a slow-going elderly woman in his search for refuge. Finally, he spotted a sign above a small building and, without giving the sign another glance, opened the front doors and slid inside.

A little bell chimed as they entered, and both sighed with sweet content as the feel of cool air washed over them. Happy slid from his head and opted instead to rest on his shoulder, meanwhile leaving Natsu to lead them further into the store as he scoped the place out. 

"Much better,” Happy sighed, to which Natsu hummed his agreement as he looked around. His good mood swayed only slightly at the sight of all the tall shelves stocked with books of ranging lengths. A heavy feeling settled in his chest as the sight brought up a few memories that he’d rather not think of. 

He frowned at the tower of books that his friend was trying to carry all at once. The boy didn’t like the way the tall pile swayed slightly whenever she made too sudden of a move. “Here,” he offered, taking all but two of the smaller ones from her. “Let me carry these. You keep looking." 

"Thanks.” She turned those doe-like eyes on him, partnered with a grin that had Natsu feeling red in the face. As he shifted his weight from foot to foot, bashfully avoiding her eyes before she finally returned her attention to the shelves, something told him the warm feeling had nothing to do with his powers. 

Natsu shook his head, much to Happy’s confusion, as he rid himself of his unwanted trip down memory lane.

It’s not like it’s forever, dummy, he berated himself, allowing a small smile to grace his features at the bittersweet feel that being surrounded by this many books brought on. You’ll see her again. 

“Natsu,” something in the Exceed’s voice had changed as he tugged on the boy’s ear to grab his attention. He was speaking in a panicked whisper, as if afraid of being overheard as he nodded his head towards the back corner. “Is that…?" 

And maybe sooner than he thought. 

The boy’s eyes grew wide in disbelief as he quickly ducked behind the nearest shelf, trying to push down the growing anxiety he felt as he tried to fervently deny what he thought his eyes had seen. 

It’s the heat, just the heat, he reassured himself. Your eyes are playing tricks on you. 

"Natsu,” Happy hopped down from his shoulder and onto the floor- landing with an audible little plop- and he pulled excitedly on the boy’s vest. “It’s Lucy!”

Hi ^-^. What do you think how long Kuroshitsuji will last? I'd say about 8- 10 years till the last chapter will be out. I think BB will have about more than 5 arcs in the future, and the last will be, well we can't predict it yet, probably about Ciel's revenge. I dunno how long mangas generally take till they're finished, but BB will be about 200 chapters and 50 volumes, I think. But that's just my view about it, what do you think? c:

Hello. :) And God, please no, not 50 volumes xD Seriously, Yana didn’t develop her narrative and characters enough for the story to go that far, haha!

Honestly, the way I see it (completely personal appreciation here), I think we’ve done 2/3 of the story right now, so for me it won’t go further than 35 volumes (which is already quite good enough). :)

After all… 

  • we already have a good idea of the culprit behind Vincent and Rachel’s murders, 
  • Ciel and Seb’s relationship got strained recently (so we’re approaching the usual time in a story where the MC could reflect on his choices which would be welcome for Ciel’s development), 
  • Elizabeth is probably starting to know the truth as of right now so it’s another important step in the plot
  • UT is getting desperate which is another important step

So as far as I’m concerned, I’m imagining what, two more arcs after this one? Three at best, because Yana owes readers too many answers right now and I don’t think she developed her characters enough that we can continue for long with always the same narrative in arcs being only subplots to the main story. 

That’s how I see it anyway. I think we need one arc about Lau/Ran Mao and possibly Mey Rin (since apparently she’s Chinese too) because Lau has to have an important role, otherwise what was the point of creating such a mysterious character with an even more mysterious bodyguard, both always looming in the background?

And after that, we need an arc about Victoria getting ready for war which could be where the situation with Ciel will escalate (as I think she’s the target of Ciel’s revenge and his parents’ murderer), leading to the final arc with Ciel learning the truth about everything and leading to the ending.

That’s how I think it should go personally, but you don’t have to agree. :) I hope it answers your question in any case.

Have a nice day/evening Anon :)

Care to share opinion(s) on college level learning? A friend went to one place where he learned 20 languages, and learned more through experience. I went to a place for 4 years learning mostly c++, and the focus was on learning algorithms and structures and whatnot. He claims that such a method can't keep up the pace with industry changes and isn't as useful for getting a job. I think cornerstones are more important, and are just as good for job-getting. How to I stop thinking/caring about this?

The thing with college is that you gotta have a goal in mind of something you want to take away from the experience rather than just stay for the sake of a depth and learning through osmosis. These days you’ll see a lot of elder people bring up stories about how they took the time to learn BASIC and by the time they finished there were already 5 other languages that were being used instead. Languages are gonna pop up a lot but programming languages are just a medium for the same concepts to happen again. Same algorithms and data structures, different language. As “fast” as the comp sci industry seems to be changing there is a much more slower paced middle ground between all these languages that people should probably be taking away from college classes. You can spend 4 years on a language at a college and by the time you come out the same story could happen to you as those who learned BASIC back in the day. There’s a core understanding of algorithms and data structures and such that is a middle ground between all those languages that you might expose yourself to through out your career. Graph theory is a low level concept of data that can have its algorithms implemented in just about any language you pick. ROT13 is an algorithm that can be implemented in the 20 languages your friend knows and in C++ but ROT13 is still just a basic intermediate algorithm that exits in concept before it’s even typed and translated into an IDE in C++ or python and such. Core concepts like this are more important than caring how to implement it into java or C++ or some functional language and whatever college classes might have you use. Being good for job-getting has less to do with the language you happen to know and more to do with the understanding you have with the material and at a certain point you’ll realize that all these languages are nothing more than syntax to a flow of logic and understanding that you wish to convey. Today C++ or C# might be popular and 4 years from now some other language might take the throne and all those people that are too hard embedded into language-favoritism are going to suffer the most in job-getting while those that move with the industry have little to suffer.

I think you’re fine. Just be sure to learn smart and not just soak in information at face-value for the sake of regurgitating it later without any actual digesting going on.
