cannot will not ever get over them

The fae

Living in Ireland I heard many stories about the fae.About they’re kind nature, the peaceful woodland spirits, playful tricksters, or even malicious beings.

Here I will give some ways to appease them, and ward them. I will also tell about dangerous fae and how to ward them.

AVOIDING FAIRIES

In Ireland children were told to keep away from fairy mounds, fairy circles, certain places in the woods, certain trees, and some strange places. Fairy mounds can be identified as strange lone hills, often found in odd place. Fairy circles are mushroom circles. They are a naturally occurring pattern, however they are believed to be portals the their realm. And stepping in one may be dangerous. Steer clear of certain trees. It is believed that fae live in them, and if disturbed they would not be happy. Notable trees to stay away from include hazel, thorn, alder, and oak. An example of a strange place would be strange rock formations in a field, and that if disturbed or moved would upset the fae who made them.


Farmers didn’t go to their mill or barns at night. It was believed that the fae used the cover of darkness to grind their grain. Disturbing them while they worked could result in you having a failed crop or other curses.

Certain bodies of water were said to be the homes of kelpies, Corrigans, and other water fae. If you came to these waters alone, you could be pulled in, or lured to your deaths (corrigans are said to beautiful creatures that lure you to your death, were they drown you.) They would drown their victims, forcing their spirits to live in the fae realm forever.


WARDING FAE

Certain flowers such as primroses, were layed on the windowsills and hung over doors. This ensured that he house was kept safe from the fae.

Garlands were made from marsh marigolds. These were placed over the barn doors. This protected the horses from being ridden to death by the fae.

However, the most notable flower to protect yourself against the fae is St. John’s Wort. Wearing this flower provided the wearer protection from fairy magic and tricks. Sometimes my grandmother would scatter petals around the outside of the house, to try to provide protection.

Some said holly berries would repel them. (Unknown why. Unlike the others I was never told this. Maybe someone could clarify.)

A four-leafed clover would allow you to see the fae, even through their glamours, or invisibility. However, this would only work once. An old tradition was to sew them into clothing, or even a little bag (this is to be worn round the neck, though some say it just has to be held) this allowed the user to see them for every clover they had sewn.

Though these are quite nice forms of protection, iron is always the best form of protection. Many believe that iron burns the fairy. Some legends say that the crafted their weapons out of silver and gold because they couldn’t use the iron. If you kept an iron nail in your pocket the fae would be unable to take you to their realm. Often iron knives, sheers, and other sharp object were hung over or near the crib of a baby. This was to prevent the baby from being stolen and swapped with a changling child. ( I don’t recommend doing this as it could be dangerous to the baby.) Sometimes horseshoes, nails, or arrowheads would be placed over doors to stop fae from entering the house or room. An iron ring was worn to protect people, it was told that the fae could not go near the person who wears it.


APPEASING FAE

To be protected from them, and to even form a relationship with the fae; one must respect them, trust them, and leave offerings for them.

Leaving bread and milk out for them was said to protect the household that did it. It was also believed that one may gain their favour by doing this. This is also a notable way of appeasing the cat síth. Not only do they like bread and milk, they also like butter, cream, sugar, ale, honey, whiskey, and I find that they like dark chocolate.

If you’re crossing a body of water, or passing by a well you may drop a piece of silver in, or a coin in for the fae that lives in it.


Ever here the saying that if you spill salt you should throw some over your right shoulder? Well that applies to the fae. If salt is spilled one may throw some over their right shoulder so that the fae can have their share.


Many of the nicer variety were insulted when they saw human mortals lacking in hospitality to one another and treating each other badly. It’s was said that they would punish people like this very harshly. However, if you were kind and honest to people they were said to treat you nicely, or leave you be.

DANGEROUS FAE

corrigans- A form of water sprite. They appear as beautiful beings who sing melodies like sirens. They mostly appear at night on a full moon. In sunlight they’re glamour goes away and their true ugly form is revealed. stay clear of bodies of water and the woods
Dullahan- The headless horseman. He is seen often in the country riding a dead horse with eyes like fire. He often has a whip made out of a spine. He roams the countryside looking for the dead. If you see him he is said to slash your eyes with his whip. Gold is said to ward them for a while.
Amadan Dubh- VERY DANGEROUS. The trickster fae. He’s a madman. Often seen dancing on lone hills to ghostly music. Cannot be reasoned with. He can place powerful, harmful curses on people. I do not know of any ways to ward him. (Maybe someone can clarify?)
Alp-luarcha- If you think it has crawled in your throats after falling asleep at a stream or other body of water, eat salted food. This will make it thirsty, and make it leave.
Bean sídhe or banshee- The only thing I know of is an iron ring, though when a person is dying nothing can keep her away as she wails.
Cat síth- it loiters around graveyards and open graves to steal the souls of those who have recently died. To try to distract it one may try dancing, singing, or telling riddles. This gives time for the souls of the deceased to pass on so that it cannot get them. I was also told that on Halloween (Samhain) a saucer of milk should be left out, this will provide good luck and protection, while those that didn’t would be cursed. If you are ever filled with a sense of dread and see a black cat with a tuff of white fur walk away slowly and then place a saucer of milk outside, then pray that this will be enough to appease it.
Boggart- It’s a malicious form of fae that takes over houses. Somewhat like a poltergeist. They cannot be reasoned with, and any attempts to appease them will annoy them. They don’t like holy water, crosses, iron, or agrimony. However, sometimes an exorcism is necessary. A family friend had to get this once.
Changling- To stop a child from being swapped keep a close eye on them, put them in a warm well lit room, stitching red thread in baby clothes and blankets was said to prevent them from being swapped, as well as hanging iron sheers or knives over the crib, or having them close by.
I hope this helps. If you have any questions or any clarifications feel free to message me.

KURO WEEK - DAY 2: Identity

“And I cannot help but wonder,

where does ‘he’ end

and where do ‘I’ begin?”


Even after their escape, Kuro still felt the cold pressure on his back – the ever watching eyes of the Druids. Always waiting, always anticipating his next move to be a failure. Always looking for a reason to get to him. To hurt him and tell him how he needed to become the Champion – Shiro. Over and over again. Until he would believe it. Until he would embrace the idea of losing himself to the arena, and become their greatest weapon.

He could still hear them comparing him to his original sometimes. He knew he was an individual personality. He had to be. And still, after all this time, Kuro was at a loss.

He still wondered, what was real, and what not. What was him and what was Shiro? Which traits, which quirks, which likes and dislikes were exclusively Kuro? And which ones were copied from the original? Which facets of his personality were his? Which ones were only a mere shadow of a man he loathed and loved at the same time?

He was at a loss.

After all this time, Kuro still wondered, where Shiro ended

and where he began.

Okay, so my poor baby sometimes wonders if he’s a real, individual person or if his mind, too, is nothing but a copy. Second entry for the @kuroweek 2017 :3

Young!remus Headcanons ll

You guys seemed to really like my headcanons, so I decided to make a part two! Enjoy!


-He has terrible posture. It makes him look much shorter than he actually is. 

-He has a great poker face, and that’s one of the reasons why he barely ever gets in trouble for the pranks. 

-He bites his nails until they bleed.

-Remus wears mismatched socks, but not the neon colored ones. Like the nude toned ones.

-He. Is. Always. Warm. Like he’s literally a human heater.

-He talks with hand motions all the time (especially when he gets very passionate about something).

-He is ridiculously messy. The other three marauders often have to clean up after him.

-He has the most painful death stare you’ll ever see.

-Cannot be woken up. No but really, you can try but there is no possible way that Remus is going to wake up until his body wants him to. He once slept through a wrestling match between James and Sirius (which are very loud).

-He prefers baths over showers 100% of the time.

-He falls asleep in classes ALL. THE. TIME.

-Very faded freckles. Like you can barely see them unless you’re a couple inches away from his face.

-He cries when he laughs super hard.

-He never does his hair so it was always SUPER tangled. The only thing he did to it was after a shower he would run his fingers through it.

-Has a very long eyelashes.

-His fingers. Do i need to say more?

-He’s left handed.

-He swears all the time.

-His wardrobe mostly consists of sweaters and skinny jeans.

-However, he wears the same three sweaters until they’re so worn out that they’re basically just pieces of material barely stuck together, then he buys three new sweaters [repeat].

-But he had an emotional attachment to each article so he never got rid of any.

-He’s hella angsty.

The Signs with a Broken Heart

This post is essentially based on my/my friends’ real life experiences.I’ll also try to include some advice how to get over this struggle. Your Sun & Venus Signs matter!

I think that today, after having written some love posts, I had to think about those who spent this day alone, because they are comfortable with it, because they don’t need anyone, or maybe because their heart isn’t healed enough to start dating again. And it’s totally fair. Heartbreak is way too underrated lately in my opinion, we think about those with a sickness, we think about those who are poor, we say that as long as you are healthy, have a place to sleep, have something to eat, you must be happy, but sometimes an emotional wound is a lot harder to heal than a physical one. When you love someone, they become the most important part of your life. You share your days with them, you miss them, you decide where to go for a dinner together because you want them to be happy too, you basically change your whole lifestyle to fit theirs. And then if one day, they decide to take their love away, it feels like only half of your life is left and you ask yourself questions how it’s possible to make it stop just like that, from one minute to another. This is why it’s so hard to get over a broken heart. And sometimes it’s even worse to lose someone who never even was yours. You start questioning everything, why does life play such a prank on you and makes you meet them, like them, fall in love and all this for nothing, because they don’t share your feelings. A person questioning themselves, thinking that they aren’t good enough for a person they love, that someone else is and they aren’t, is probably one of the most hurtful feelings.

So here’s how I see the signs being hurt and hopefully this will help a few of you. Not because you will read this post and your pain will suddenly go away, no way, I just want you to know that there’s always someone to understand exactly how you feel, that you’re not alone.

ARIES:

As an Aries, you can be very emotional, but real feelings don’t reach you too often. Quite careless in your young years, you might be attracted to people physically, like them in different ways, call it love, feel sadness about losing them, but only the pain of a broken heart will tell you it was real. Because

so media, and indeed society in general, has this horrible habit of glorifying and romanticizing codependent relationships. i really want people to be educated about them and why they’re unhealthy, so i’d appreciate if everyone could help me spread this around! feel free to add anything in the comments you think i’ve overlooked.

what is a codependent relationship?

a codependent relationship is one where the parties involved are unhealthily dependent on one another. it does not have to be a romantic relationship, but can be platonic, familial, etc. it will usually posses one or more of the following traits:

  • one or both people feeling incapable of handling the world without the other
  • one or both people feeling as if you are incomplete are unwhole without the other
  • one or both allowing one to have an inordinate amount of control in the other’s life; living in a way to please them; significantly altering one’s self or behavior to meet the other’s standards
  • one or both prioritizing the other’s needs and wants above one’s own
  • one or both having an unwillingness to go about life without the other

why is this bad?

besides the blatantly obvious reasons, here are some of the negative impacts/possible if not likely outcomes of a codependent relationship:

  • inability to cope or go about daily life without the support of the other
  • increased anxiety/depression/hyperactivity/indecisiveness without the other
  • increased jealousy/over-protectiveness
  • falling apart of outside relationships due to prioritization of one (loss of friends basically)
  • emotional and/or physical isolation from everyone besides the other
  • loss of individuality and control over one’s life
  • suffering of one’s individual education/career
  • refusal of separation when the relationship turns abusive
  • loss of free time
  • unhealthy obsession with the other
  • increased responsibility of carrying the entire emotional burden of another person

some of the effects of a breakup from a codependent relationship:

  • bouts of depression/anxiety
  • isolation
  • suicide/self-harm/addiction/binge eating/other self-destructive tendencies
  • worsening of effects of pre-existing mental illness
  • inability to reconnect with other people
  • loss of direction in life
  • a WHOLE wealth of other problems that would not fit in this list honestly

a common misconception is that intensely attached relationships like these are beneficial for people with mental illnesses because of the extra support given, when in fact it will often exacerbate the symptoms over time as the individual loses the ability to cope on their own and prioritize the other person above their own well-being.

there are varying degrees of severity of codependency, but that does not mean that ones that are lesser are not still unhealthy.

steps you can take to prevent codependency in a relationship if you are concerned:

  • discuss boundaries. lay out with your partner a basis (or schedule if need be) on which to spend time with one another that does not cause your other relationships, career/education, and personal time to suffer severely.
  • make room for personal time with friends, without the other person. maintain your outside relationships. if you ignore them for the sake of your partner, you’ll slowly lose them, and won’t have anyone else by the time the relationship has run its course. this will also ensure that you can maintain individual relationships with others on your own without the influence of your partner. (also, anyone would be able to tell you that trying to spend time with two people that are attached at the hip is very uncomfortable, and oftentimes devaluating)
  • find other emotional outlets and support than just the one person. find friends who can help  you with your problems too, so the entire weight of them is not put on your partner and you have somewhere to go for help and support if you lose them.
  • take a time-out. spend a couple of weeks to a month apart, not spending extensive time together. while this may seem daunting, it will help you reassert authority over your own life and readjust to not being dependent on them. this also gives you and your partner time to take a breather and reflect if things are getting intense.
  • break it off altogether. this can be a terrifying, if not unthinkable, prospect. but if you cannot be together and maintain your own lives and personal agency despite your best efforts, then you need to call it quits, no ifs ands or buts. 

you, your sense of self, and your ability to go about life without leaning completely on another person is more important than any relationship could ever be. it is not romantic or even CLOSE to ideal to unable to be away or without another person, no matter what any show, book, or movie says. this does not mean you are alone or that other people don’t matter, but that what matters most is you. feel free to love a person with all you have, but don’t let that be ALL you have.

now go out and form some healthy relationships, okay?

I used to want to save the world. To end war and bring peace to mankind. But then, I glimpsed the darkness that lives within their light. I learned that inside every one of them, there will always be both. The choice each must make for themselves - something no hero will ever defeat.

compillation of doodles about Kos. Random, though for purposes, the slash one and the one with the dream energy was mostly me imagining how he can use the dream in combat, much like vessels uses soul.

Out of all of those I think the one that I cannot get over is Kos buying a cookie from Millybug, the dream ghost from the Glade of Hope.

 Why does that doodle sticks to me so much? because that ghost always says:
“Buy my cookies! They’re ever so tasty.”
“Buy my cookies! Once I’ve sold them all I can go home. “

 
It sticks so much to me is because that is a ghost, it will never go home, it doesn’t matter how many cookies it sells.
 But I imagine Kos buys its cookies anyway, even if he is actually buying nothing and just giving away his geo, what matters to him is that he is putting a smile on that little ghost’s face.

I won’t give up

Pairing: Frank Castle x Reader

Warnings: If you’re not comfortable with pregnancy/abortion, I really suggest you to just scroll past this. Angst on so many levels, lots of tears and lots of swearing.

Frank finds out reader is pregnant and freaks out. He wants her to have an abortion (she says no) because he doesn’t want to be a father anymore, but then he apologises for asking that to her (he is afraid to lose the people he loves again – he knows all the friends of the people he killed will use his kid as a bait to kill him - and he doesn’t know if he has the strength to be there for them and protect them).

A/N: So, not trying to brag but this might be one of the best one shots I’ve ever written. I’m seriously considering getting over caffeinated more often to write something like this. Also, BIG THANK YOU to the person who requested this, I cannot thank you enough!! My life would be a constant and lonely wandering without @imaginedaily and her opinion on my work <3. I love you babyy!! Feedback does no harm <3

You took a mental note to start looking for some new ones or making your own out of a few songs you’d totally hate.

“Come on, (Y/N),” you cheered on yourself, “you got this, baby.”

And just as if you were entering a haunted house, you got inside the bathroom. The monsters were waiting for you inside it; okay, it was just one. But you had never been more terrified in your life. Not even that time when you thought Frank Castle was after you. By now, Frank Castle was the lesser of evils.

The monster, a.k.a pregnancy test, was waiting for you, and when you peeked on it from afar trying to stay as away from it as possible, you just didn’t see shit. You made yourself walk one step, and then another, until you were touching the monster with your hands and bringing it closer for a better look. You sighed and threw the evidence on the trashcan and went to lay on your bed.

okay so. as someone who runs one of the very, very few ocpd-centric blogs on tumblr (not this one, i mean @thatocpdfeel ), its actually so upsetting how little people know abt ocpd, even here on tumblr amongst other mental health bloggers. not to say anything bad abt those bloggers!!! its just not spoken abt much. maybe thats because its not as common as, like, bpd or avpd, but its also because SO many ocpd symptoms are ENCOURAGED by society. i get so many tags on my posts saying “thats an ocpd thing???” or “thats not normal???” or “im not supposed to do that???” like so much of what is killing us from the inside are things parents, teachers, and guardians all think are positive attributes to have, but we internalize those things in such a twisted and intense way that we suffer and yet are idealized for our suffering.
ive had so many people with other illnesses, like depression, tell me how ocpd has its upsides because i can be productive and get stuff done when they cant even get out of bed. thats not how it works.
ocpd is not being perfect.
ocpd is NEEDING to be perfect because even the tiniest mistake means you are the scum of the earth and deserve to die.
ocpd is not double checking your work to make sure you got everyting right because you want a good score.
ocpd is perfecting the wording of a single sentence because if it doesnt imply the exact thought you are trying to get across then it means you have failed and even if it is still technically right and no points are taken off, inside you know that it was wrong and it COULD have been better and your personal standards are ten times higher than the official standards because you know that the goals you need to reach to be successful are leaps and bounds above what the average person needs, not because you are better than them but because you must strive to become better than them at all cost because second best is still a loser.
ocpd is not orangizing your work station before starting a new project.
ocpd is crying and screaming while you trash 42 different versions of the same attempted project and shoving everything off your desk and wanting to pull out your hair or bang your head on a wall because you messed it up so many times already and if you dont get it right this time you will never get it and you will be marked as a failure for the rest of your life, unable to accomplish literally anything and youre so terrified of that thought you take six hours to scrub at your desk and mop the floor and take a razor to that bit of wax thats been stuck on the leg of your chair for a week and half and meticulously organize everything into boxes, counting every ration you put in to make sure they all even out, and listing everything thats there and labeling the boxes then straight up leaving the work area and not thinking about the project for another month.
ocpd is not having a folder of all your important documents because you know you will need them some time.
ocpd is having six folders, each containing vastly different documents, some of which are important, some of which are just old receipts to mcdonalds, some are keepsakes from friends, some of which are just a scap of paper with scribbles that you dont remember what they mean but maybe one day you will, and the rest are just any paper youve ever come across in your life. theyre all just as important as everything else though because the thought of prioritising them is nearly incomprehensible because they are all important and you need them all for equally important things so when you need, like, that paper for your auto insurance you first must sift through six hundred pages of notes your friends passed back and forth in middle school over five years ago and you dont even talk to them anymore but you absolutely cannot get rid of them. its all so important.
ocpd is not being productive.
ocpd is waking up and remembering that you are an inherently flawed and imperfect being, but also that your worth in this world is defined by what you put into it, so even if you cant be perfect, if you make enough perfect stuff or do enough stuff perfectly, it will all give the illusion to others as well as yourself that you are perfect. so you push yourself to do whatever it is you do. regardless of your other illnesses, you work and and try to be as productive as you possibly can because thats your only chance. you go into work sick. you push yourself past your limits, past what you know you are physically/mentally able to do, and you suffer for breaching those limits but all that pain is WORTH it because you are temporarily overcome with a sense of accomplishement and SOMEONE is finally proud of you. you did something right FOR ONCE. so even if you go completely nonverbal, or lay in bed for the next week in pain, or end up in the ER, or seventeen other things didnt get done, there was the most brief sense of absolute euphoria even if its almost immidiately replaced by a sense of overwhelming anxiety about what you messed up, forgot, did wrong, or ignored to achieve that feeling and the cycle of fixing, fixing, fixing repeats itself. ocpd is not being bossy, egotistical, or controlling. ocpd is a deeply psychological understanding that even the most insignificant mistake will reflect back on you in the most exaggerated and horrendous way possible. its knowing that if you ask your friend to go get you a red pen, but they bring you a blue one, and you dont know they got blue instead, so if you write even the smallest mark in that blue ink, even if its technically okay to write in red or blue, you specified red, so the fact that its blue makes it wrong and unnacceptable so in your mind its better to drop what your doing and get the correct red pen yourself even if its right beside your friend and you are already focusing on something else. the concept of asking others to do something, not even something in a manner of helping you but just to divide up jobs evenly, its absolutely impossible. because if they do something wrong, it will reflect on you, then you did something wrong and we both know that doing something wrong is completely out of the question. you would rather multitask four things at once, but the sight of someone else just twiddling their thumbs while you bust your ass is so infuriating! why cant they do what you are doing? why cant they just read your mind and know exactly what you need, when you need it, and be helpful? thats what you would do if they were in your situation! if they were working like you, you would hand them everything. you would also probably go ahead and just put that back for them. well, you could also handle that too. and before you know it, their job is your job and there they are twiddling their thumbs and looking at you for a job to do. its the phrase “if you want something done right, do it yourself” taken to a whole other level. ocpd is so much more than what people think. were more than just a “type a personality” or “perfectionists” and its not just “mild ocd” either. ocpd is painful. please remember that.

so i was watching 2x19 (again) and noticed for the first time that everyone in IT except for Winn wears the DEO catsuit uniform so...

It starts with a joke.

One of the things Maggie comes to learn about Alex is that she’s obsessed with Halloween. She’s big on holidays in general, sure, Valentine’s Day and birthdays and, hell, even Arbor Day get more recognition than in any relationship Maggie’s ever had before. But Halloween puts the others to shame. Alex loves Halloween so much it makes it look like she’d barely noticed Valentine’s Day.

Around midsummer, Alex starts talk about costumes. Whenever she thinks of a pun or they see a new movie with a distinctive character, or they encounter a cool looking alien, Maggie learns that Alex’s first reaction is, “that would be a good Halloween costume.” Like the way some people say, that would be a good band name, Alex defaults to Halloween.

And, of course, because it’s Alex and Alex is deep, there’s a deep reason for it. Getting to pretend to be someone else, stepping out of the shadow of her brilliant parents and alien sister, shucking off expectations and just getting to be Alex, just getting to highlight her brains and her wit and her crafty skills (which, where are those the rest of the year, Maggie wonders, flipping through old photos of past Halloweens), it makes sense. In retrospect, it’s so totally Alex.

It’s nerdy and wonderful and quirky and unexpected and Maggie loves her for it.

And so Maggie gets sucked into it too. She finds herself saying, “oh yeah, that’s my Halloween costume,” but to the most random things, just to make Alex laugh. About a toddler they see in the park wearing rainbow leggings, a tutu, and no shirt (“you’d look great in that,” Alex had murmured into her ear). About a new bottle of scotch. About a weird blob they spend a month investigating and never figure out if it was a body part or an excrement from an alien.

So when James brings wings and mashed potatoes to game night, just for him and Maggie cause they both love pizza but like, they have it a lot, Maggie pays him the highest compliment she can think of. “You’re the best thing I’ve ever seen, James Olson. I should be you for Halloween.”

And Kara and Winn and Lena and James and J’onn and Alex all laugh, and Maggie looks around at them, dumbly, not understanding the joke.

And Alex knows that Maggie has some…issues…with being laughed at when she doesn’t get the joke, so she quickly walks over to her and slips an arm low around her waist and pulls her into her body and drops a kiss on her head. “Babe,” she says, a fond smile pulling her lips, her eyes both laughing and loving, “you can’t be James for Halloween. No one would be able to tell you were wearing a costume.” Maggie looks at her, eyebrows furrowed, she still doesn’t get it.

Kara tries to help, but she’s still so close to laughing. “Like, what would you want to wear, Maggie?”

“Um, I don’t know, like a tight grey long-sleeved henley, too-tight jeans, and maybe a black jacket?” Maggie offers, hesitantly, still not getting the joke.

Alex just waves a hand up and down, indicating Maggie’s body. Maggie follows the motion with her eyes, and starts to laugh too.

She’s wearing a tight grey long-sleeved Henley, too tight dark jeans, and her favorite black leather jacket.

Maggie laughs long and hard, and they all join her.

“Jimmy,” she says, when she has her breath back, still leaning into the warmth and comfort of Alex’s body. “I had no idea we were twinsies all this time.”

“And you call yourself a detective,” Winn mutters.


They have a Halloween pre-party at Kara’s. There’s a big CatCo party they’re all going to later, but they meet up at Kara’s for dinner and drinks beforehand to give Kara and James a fun Halloween before they have to network and be professional at the party.

Since that night, they’d all joked about it incessantly. Would Winn look funnier in a Supergirl costume or a Martian Manhunter suit? If they dressed as each other, would this Halloween prove for once and for all that Maggie and Alex really don’t have separate wardrobes anymore? Would a bowtie of Winn’s even fit around James’ neck? Alex and Maggie furtively text each other under the table when it comes up: will Lena declare her feelings by coming as Supergirl? Or as Kara? Or maybe, Maggie suggests, she’ll do a vertical split half-Kara-half-Supergirl costume to prove she’s known the truth forever.

It’s not like they’ve made a plan or anything, but, on October 31st, they all show up at Kara’s, and they’ve all done it.

It’s James who ends up dressed as Supergirl. He went all in – he’s got a long blonde wig (a very cheap, very terrible one) and the full suit, including the thigh-high boots and the skirt and the tights, which he complains about incessantly. “How do women wear these,” he whines for the third time in as many minutes, “they rip when you touch them! And this skirt is short, like, one good gust of wind and my junk is everywhere.”

Maggie just claps him on the shoulder. “Welcome to the patriarchy, my friend,” she says, taking his beer from his hand and drinking from it herself. “Gender norms are a bitch.”

Alex comes dressed as Winn, with a plaid shirt buttoned all the way up and a clashing patterned bowtie and her hair heavily gelled so it’s slicked back but also puffed up in the front like his. She manages to maintain an endearing but nervous energy all night, pressing her palms to her forehead and running her hands through her hair and saying things like “next level” “jiggery-pokey” and it’s just so Winn. And it’s not her best look aesthetically – Maggie’s into her no matter what she wears, obviously, but she’s ready to see what’s underneath the clothes more than she usually is, but Alex is having so much fun and Maggie loves it.

Maggie herself is dressed as Kara. She’s got a blindingly pink cardigan over a bright yellow work dress with a thin little belt around her waist, and cute black mary jane heels. Her hair is up in bun with little braids threaded through it, and she keeps offering everyone hot lattes and asking about layouts. She refuses to tell anyone where she got the clothes, even Alex. She looks good, objectively, but no one can stop gawking or laughing at her.

J’onn just keeps popping in as other people. First as Cat Grant, nearly giving Kara a heart attack, then as Maxwell Lord, nearly earning himself a punch to the face from Alex, then as Lucy Lane, then as Vasquez, then Eliza. He finally settles into just wearing his own face – J’onn, not Hank – and everyone whines that shapeshifters really shouldn’t be invited to costume parties.

Lena comes as James, wearing, of course, a tight grey henley unbuttoned one button too many, dark jeans (which definitely came from the men’s department, Maggie’s gay brain notes), black suit shoes, and an expensive camera slung across her chest. She’s got her hair pulled back into a low bun on the nape of her neck and she’s not wearing her usual bold makeup. She looks good. And gay. Alex and Maggie exchange a series of eyebrows.

Kara is dressed as Maggie. Skintight high-waisted jeans with a thin black belt through them, a flannel shirt tucked in, black boots, leather jacket. Her hair is down, parted in the middle, and mostly straight, with a few un-Supergirl-like curls in it, and it keeps falling down into her face. She’s got a prop gun tucked into her waistband, and she walks around asking everyone if they’ve seen her girlfriend who is so cool and wonderful and smart and pretty, has anyone seen her, she’s so great? It’s, honestly, pretty spot-on.

And Kara and Maggie have had their issues, so it makes everyone’s heart grow a couple sizes to see that they picked each other for this. It’s cute, and Maggie gets even more why Alex loves this holiday so much.

But the real prize is Winn. He’s dressed as Alex, in full DEO tactical gear. All black catsuit uniform, complete with thigh holster and tactical vest. He stands with his legs set wide, hands on his hips (in a pose most would associate with Supergirl but everyone in the room knows Kara stole from Alex), and threatens to injure everyone with his index finger. He’s parted his hair on the side, and he looks completely ridiculous. The black DEO uniform makes him look skinny and silly and gawky and gangly and young. Of all of them, even Maggie in a pink cardigan, he looks the most like he’s playing dress up. The most like a kid trying on their dad’s suit jacket with their mom’s high heels while still wearing their own footsie pajamas.

And it isn’t until later in the night that Alex looks over at him, squints, and says, “Wait a second, Schott. Hold up. You’re a DEO agent too.”

And one by one, everyone slowly gets it, and they all start to laugh.

“Oh my god,” Maggie says, holding onto Lena so she doesn’t fall over. “Schott, I cannot wait to see you wear that every day to work.”

And it seems like this never occurred to Winn, because he opens his mouth and gapes, and then blushes, and then stammers and stutters, and then squeaks, and takes him about five minutes to be able to mumble, “Shut up.”


And it was the best Halloween ever, but everyone feels a little bad, so, without discussing it, each and every one of them comes to Thanksgiving dressed as Lena.

today is the day, guys. the day most of us has been waiting 5 years for. the day some people never thought would ever come. but here we are. honestly, CS is the reason why i even became obsessed with OUAT. it’s crazy but i’ve met the coolest people because of this ship. and i just cannot believe how far we’ve come. like after all these years our otp is finally getting married. and i don’t think i’ll ever be over it, or fully comprehend it. i just love them a lot. they. are. everything.

Wait … Derek’s Back? by i_amtheoutlaw (1/1 | 6,868 | NC17)

“Derek’s what!?” asked Scott, though he sounded alarmed to hear what answer might come out of Stiles’ mouth.

“He’s just back, okay?” Stiles answered through gritted teeth. “He’s here! Derek’s here and he wants - needs me … me, Scott! Stiles! Derek Hale is in there waiting for one Stiles right now and I have reasons to believe that he may actually want me or something … and, er,” Stiles paused and gestured gawkily, “this could, y'know, actually help Derek get better, too.”

Scott just blinked at him for a moment then questioned, very slowly, “Stiles … do you have a crush on Derek Hale?”

**
Derek is submissive in the bedroom and shows back up in Beacon Hills all sulky-wolf after he and Braeden abruptly stop seeing each other. Stiles thinks that he can fix Derek up again even without having perky tits and all that practical experience with men on his side.

The New Normal by midnightcas (27/27 | 63,392 | PG13)

After Stiles gets hurt…again, Derek puts him on the metaphorical supernatural bench. Meanwhile, Stiles tries to have a normal life and make normal friends. But when a new pack comes to town and the Hales start getting threats, things start to get a little….not normal.

“‘Stiles,’ She said suddenly serious, 'What is this?’ She held up a little black badge case and flipped it open. Inside it was Derek’s FBI badge. 'You can’t kill a fed.’ She told him, like she was disciplining a small child. 'We can’t make it personal for them.’

'We’re wanted murders with over 40 kills in 5 states,’ Stiles replied, rolling his eyes, 'Pretty sure it’s personal already. Besides it’s Derek Hale. He left us all to die. He deserves it.’”

Tear Me Apart by littlefrog1025 (1/1 | 4,851 | NC17)

Stiles needs to get to grandmother’s house.

Carve My Name into Your Arm by Jinxy, oldmanrenkas, secondstar (1/1 | 14,891 | NC17)

Stiles cannot love, because it isn’t something he can touch. The closest he’s ever felt, by his recollection, has been when he held someone else’s life in his hands. With one last gasping breath, their blood covering his hands, Stiles believed that what he felt deep within him was, in fact, love. It was adoration, in a way. A connection that could not be undone, could never be severed. Ending a life brought a rush unlike anything Stiles had ever felt, or would feel, of that he was certain. 

I just cannot get over both Kurt’s and Jane’s faces when he shows up in her tent… It’s just… GUH! There’s so much pain and longing and love in both of them. They look at each other at first like they cannot believe the other person is actually there, it’s like they’ve dreamed about this moment for long but they have given up hope that it will ever happen. For a moment they both just stand in their place unable to move, like they’re scared that if they do move the spell will break and the other person will disappear.

And then, almost at the same moment, they both let out a breath you know they have been holding the moment they parted, and god knows how long that has been. For the whole time they’ve been separated, they have not been able to breathe and now that they’re finally there, face to face, they finally can. 

And then Kurt just drops the bag on the floor and Jane is all but sprinting towards him. She collides into him and hugs him so tight, so so tight, she can’t get enough of this contact, and they both close their eyes and breathe each other in and it is like their hearts and breaking and becoming whole at the same time. And then he says that he cannot believe he has finally found her, and she knows that he has been looking for her since the moment she disappears, not that she ever had any doubts, but just hearing it from him, it makes her fall in love with him all over again in that fraction of a second. 

And she is blinking fast, holding back the tears, and he has this sad, heart broken smile because she’s there and she’s real and she’s alive and she’s safe and it is more than he could have ever wished for. And all that had happened over these past months don’t matter anymore because she’s finally back in his arms where she belongs. He can finally hold her again, feel her against him, and touch her. And all the other emotions he is feeling don’t exist in that moment. All he can feel is the love he has for her, the love that rages through him and that has kept him going all these months.

And there will be time later for everything else, but in this very moment there can only be their love and their longing. And it might not be all resolved with this one hug, there will be so much more to do to get back to where they once were, but they know they can work through it all because he just came back to bring her home and in that moment, all the things that have kept her away from home just seem to disappear all at once.

Because he is home.

The Sakamaki (including Kino), mukami and tsukinami (think that’s how ya spell it) brothers reactions to their daughter being born a Diclonius and she can’t exactly control her powers, and ends up accidentally killing someone, causing her to get all upset about it -Anonymous.

Sorry Anon, I deleted the original ask on accident, but here you go!

SAKAMAKI

Shu: Shu is fully aware of his daughter’s true nature, but he tells her to not be upset over it since it couldn’t be helped. Sighing, Shu would tell her to forget about the incident if it was that painful to bear. He knows that he’s not offering her the best advice, but he wants his daughter to be able to move on and cope with it.

Reiji: Reiji is awkward and stiff when it comes to comforting his own daughter, and he’s cautious with what he says. After all, he’s murdered before, so he does not want to say something that will further upset his daughter. Placing a tentative hand on her shoulder, Reiji tells her that it’s alright and that she’ll learn to control her powers one day.

Ayato: Ayato is puzzled by his daughter’s reaction to killing someone accidentally, for he thinks that her powers are amazing and strong. He frowns in disbelief when he finds her sobbing on the floor, and Ayato quickly pulls her to her feet and tells her to get a hold of herself. Gripping her shoulders, Ayato states that it’s fine but if she really hates what she did, she should learn to control her powers.

Kanato: Kanato is indifferent to his daughter’s murderous actions, and he informs her of this too. He’s not much of a helping hand when it comes to comforting his daughter, but he tells her that it’s not bad. After all, as a Diclonius with vampire genetics, the ability to kill is already part of her nature. Nothing can ever change that fact.

Laito: Laito’ would sit beside his crying daughter and wrap an arm around her in comfort despite the fact that he sees nothing wrong in killing another being. He reminds his daughter that since she is not human, she can surely commit murders without worry. It’s not like she’s a human who has to deal with religion and sins, right?

Subaru: Subaru can sense that his daughter is a little shell-shocked by it all, and he doesn’t know what else he can do to bring her back to her senses and the right state of mind. He ruffles her hair and tells her to stop crying since tears won’t bring back the dead. Causing his daughter to cry more, Subaru decides to let his s/o deal with it. Nothing he says will bring her comfort.

Kino: Kino would congratulate his daughter for killing someone for the first time, but his praise and celebrations are cut short when his daughter bursts into tears. Baffled by her reaction, Kino asks for an explanation and when he’s given one, Kino just laughs and explains that she shouldn’t be like this. She can’t escape her fate of murdering beings below her. It’s unavoidable.

MUKAMI

Ruki: Ruki has to sit his daughter down and explain that what she did was never intentional, so she should not blame herself so deeply for killing someone. But even though he tries his best to reason with her, his words fall upon deaf ears and his daughter can’t seem to grasp that she truly isn’t at fault for what happened.

Kou: Kou tries to cheer his daughter up by distracting her with materialistic items and offers of vacation trips around the world, but his daughter won’t take it. Her tears eventually force Kou to have a one-on-one conversation with her about her actions, and he tells her what she needs to do to conceal her strength if she really despised herself.

Yuma: Yuma scratches the back of his head, unsure of the right words to say to his grieving daughter. He didn’t think he would ever have to face issues like these as a parent. Crossing his arms, Yuma mutters how kids are so troublesome and he later tells her to forget about the incident. There’s no good in crying over what’s already been done.

Azusa: Tuned to his daughter’s feelings and emotions, Azusa knows that there is really nothing they both can do to fix the situation besides moving on and putting this issue behind them. He pats his daughter’s head and offers her comforting words, hoping her miserable tears would end soon. He later promises to protect her from anyone who dares to hurt her.

TSUKINAMI

Carla: Carla is not amused by his daughter’s actions, for he knew that she had the skill to kill long before she was born into the world. He doesn’t completely understand why she’s feeling so guilty about killing someone though, and Carla wonders if she’ll ever overcome this. Sternly, Carla reminds her that she cannot be so rash with her emotions and that she must get over it soon.

Shin: Shin is ecstatic to hear that his daughter finally killed someone, but his cheerful smile eventually turns into a displeasing frown when he finds her crying about it. Ordering her to stop sobbing about it, Shin says it’s embarrassing for a daughter of his to cry over a stranger’s death, and he commands that she learn to grow up and take responsibility for it.

Imagine Tony taking all the kids under his wings. Spidey, Kamala, Harley... he can't not intervene, "the kids are going to get themselves killed they have no selfpreservation instinct stop laughing Rhodey, no I don't like them but I'm like the first modern superhero and I just know i'm going to be sued if something happens to them, shut up Rhodey" with Rhodey wondering if there's going to be yet another kid hanging out in the labs whenever he visits Tony

God, Tony so absolutely would.

I mean he is already taking care of Harley, who absolutely does not have a self preservation instinct if you think back to IM3, and now he’s also taking care of Peter, who should have a self preservation instinct, even if just because of his spidey sense, but clearly that isn’t working out either.

And then he meets Kamala, who is also doing all this crazy dangerouy stuff and Tony is mentally throwing his hands up in the air, because what the fuck is he supposed to do with that, but in reality he just fusses over all of them.

He simply cannot stay away, and he is pretty sure he can make their comstumes or gadgets or their very own workshop that much better if just anyone would let him. Not that anything would ever stop him from doing the best he can for them.

By now Rhodey is absolutely resigned to this and he has listened to Tony’s triad (“The kids are going to get themselves killed, they have no self preservation instinct, stop laughing Rhodey, no I don’t like them but I’m like the first modern superhero and I just know I’m going to be sued if something happens to them, shut up Rhodey”) more than once by now and he always laughs at Tony but when it comes down to it, he is the first to help Tony come up with a new design.

Whenever he hears about yet another superhero Rhodey already wonders what age they are and if he’s going to find them in Tony’s workshop getting the “I don’t even like you, I just don’t want you killed, no don’t, I’m not your big brother or uncle” speech, that never seems to stick with those kids either, because they spend almost as much time with Tony as they do with their own family.

And despite all of Tony’s protests that he is not interested in them personally, it’s just a matter of security and reputation, he remembers every important test they have, he studies with them if they ask, he makes sure they eat and go to medical after a fight, and he knows all their parents because he needs to know who to call when they stay over, right?

“Stop laughing, Rhodey, I don’t even like them” is a lot less effective when he is in his pyjamas and yelling with Harley and Peter at a screen because of stupid science while he advises Kamala on her nailpolish or hair style.

Nu'est and Produce 101: aka how deep is your ㄴㅇㅅㅌ

Ren’s fancafe and instagram posts have been puzzling me for a while. He recently sang us a song playing the piano for if we are feeling down to comfort us. Baekho’s posts are making sense now also. Is there any question how deeply these boys love and care about their fans? We have literal albums dedicated to us, ㄴㅇㅅㅌ. They work tirelessly to show us how appreciated we are and that they cannot exist without us. Now, Pledis has issued a statement confirming that members will be joining Produce 101, which means Nu'est cannot promote as a group during that time. However. The boys were distressed over this decision. They CHOSE this, and probably as an effort to reach more Korean fans since they lost so many. It’s certainly risky, and disappointing for those of us who were waiting on a comeback. In the past, Minhyun literally had to knock on doors for opportunities to get their name out there. They NEED a Korean fanbase. ㄴㅇㅅㅌ, they need us now more than ever. Despite our heartbreak or our feelings about Produce 101, the boys are asking us to support them. As a dedicated ㄴㅇㅅㅌ, I will give them what they ask for and support their decision. Now is not the time to be selfish. We know how talented and underrated and underpromoted they are: this is a calculated risk but a hopeful one. What you decide is up to you, but I will be supporting them no matter what. I encourage you to join me. Their happiness is literally the only thing I care about.
