carrie talks to people

ohbvcks  asked:

Derek Hale finding he enjoys bath bombs. Especially if they're what, lavender, I think that are the calming ones? Yeah. After a particularly rough night he goes home and drops one into a hot bath. Bonus points for Stiles' reaction being purely and genuinely in awe.

Derek doesn’t treat himself often. The store had been one of Laura’s favorites, and for the longest time he could never walk past it without the scents of the vanilla and cinnamon making him think of her. She’d enjoyed using the bath bombs a lot, and Derek remembers as a teenager he’d complain all the time about the colorful streaks left in the tub. 

He’s looking in the shop window, and for the first time in a long while, the feeling is different– time has eased the pain and the guilt, and now it’s just the fond memories of his sister. 

Derek pushes the door open, and the bell tinkles merrily. The employees are friendly– perhaps a bit too friendly and knowledgeable, and Derek doesn’t know how he finds himself talking, but talk he does. He doesn’t know what quite he wants, but he likes this scent, and he like relaxing after a long day, and … ends up purchasing an entire bag’s worth of bath bombs, hand creams, and a soap bar shaped like a spaceship for Stiles. 

He gets home and puts dinner in the oven, puts away the laundry, and sits on the couch, wondering what to do next. Stiles won’t be home for awhile; Derek could take this opportunity to work on his next book, but he’s still waiting for feedback from his editor from the last one, and he doesn’t want to switch mindsets on his projects just yet. 

The little brown bag is still sitting invitingly on the table; Derek takes out the tissue-wrapped one for Stiles and puts it in the bedroom, then takes the rest of it to the bathroom. He fills the tub, wondering when the last time he took an actual bath. He must have been a kid. 

The purple-and-pink bath bomb has a touch of glitter in it, and when dropped in the water it starts fizzing immediately, exploding in a cascade of color and gentle lavender scent. Derek undresses and gets in the tub, closing his eyes.

It is calming. The warm water and bubbles are foaming gently around him, and the scent lulls him into a soft peace. 

“There you are,” Stiles says, his voice a little awed. 

Derek opens his eyes. Stiles is standing in the bathroom doorway, still in his deputy uniform, smiling fondly at him. 

“You’re home early,” Derek says.

Stiles walks over to the tub, bending down to kiss Derek on the forehead. “Yeah, I finished everything. Plus, I wanted to see you. Dinner smells amazing, by the way. How was your day? Got yourself some bubble bath, I see.” Stiles dips his fingers in the water, flicking a bubble at Derek.

“I like it.”

“It’s a good look on you,” Stiles says.

“What is?”

“Happy.” 

This makes Derek smile, and he tugs Stiles closer by the shirt, pulling him in for a deep kiss. “You’re getting me all wet,” Stiles says, laughing. 

“Good, now you can join me.”

Stiles laughs and gets undressed, stepping carefully in the tub. It takes some bit of rearranging for them both to fit, but they manage. Derek hums to himself, kissing the back of Stiles’ neck, listening to him talk about his day. He may have never thought he’d get this quiet, soft domesticity, never thought he’d deserve it. But he does. He closes his eyes and lets the sound of Stiles’ voice and the warmth of the bath draw him in, the feeling of safety and comfort and love all around him.

  • Reminder that Simon has admitted to having speech problems and not speaking much at all during his first year
  • Reminder that Simon tends to communicate non-verbally, through shrugs and gestures

  • Reminder that when Simon was with Baz and Penelope he would often let them do all the talking
  • Reminder that after the Mage died Baz said that he and Simon would often sit together in silence
  • Reminder that Simon is probably not a very talkative or loud person given his history with speech problems
  • Reminder than Simon probably has a speech disorder like developmental verbal dyspraxia or Alalia or possibly even selective mutism

OKAY BUT LISTEN

You know what part of Carry On makes me really happy?

Well, we have the part (in the glorious chapter 62) where Baz and Simon are just laying on the ground being domestic as fuck. I mean they’re just holding hands and placing small kisses. ((These adorable shits I cannot.)) But that’s not exactly what makes me really happy.

See, in this part Baz asks Simon about if Simon’s gay. And Simon’s like ‘idk’ and Baz’s like ‘how did you not now?’

and then this happens:

“I don’t know,” he says, closing his eyes. “I guess I’ve never thought much about what I am. I’ve got a lot on my plate.”

AND THEN. BECAUSE SIMON LOVES FOOD AND HE SAYS “I’ve got a lot on my plate” THIS HAPPENS:

That makes me laugh. A juvenile snorty laugh. Snow starts laughing with me.

I MEAN

SIMON AND BAZ. ENEMIES SINCE THE BEGINNING. LAUGHING TOGETHER.

BAZ AND A JUVENILE SNORTY LAUGH.

Baz has been in love with Simon for so long, but they’ve spent all their time fighting and hating. Baz always has these walls up and pretends he doesn’t feel anything for Simon but hatred. And now they’re laughing together. A snorty laugh. THEY’RE HAPPY AND IN LOVE AND IT’S SO ADORABLE AND THIS JUST MAKES ME REALLY HAPPY.

JUST IMAGINE SIMON AND BAZ GENUINELY LAUGHING TOGETHER. (because simon made a great pun) (A PUN)

the-darkhunter  asked:

Hey there :-) Can you make me a rec list about firefighter sterek please? Thanks ;-)

sure! here are some cute and lovely fics that you might haven’t seen before, hopefully you’ll enjoy them!

stiles is a firefighter

  • You Are My Fire by omelet (Not Rated, 8k)  Derek thinks this is getting a little out of hand. Because honestly, he never would have guessed that he would one day come to own a firemen-themed calendar.
  • untitled by bleep0bleep (T, 1k)  Laura punches him playfully in the shoulder, chuckling. “Dude, lighten up on the staff here. It’s not their fault they think you’re one of the dudes going in the calendar.” 
  • start a fire in your heart by dedougal (E, 6k)  Stiles wants nothing more than to keep his head down and get on with his job as a firefighter. Of course, that’s when his photo ends up on the front pages, drawing attention from places he thought he’d left behind.

derek is a firefighter

  • until the clock strikes midnight again by decideophobia (T, 5k) Derek stumbles upon a test then, towards the end of the magazine, and before he realizes what he’s doing, he’s reading out loud, “Are you good in bed?”Stiles drops his pen.
  • untitled by pantstomatch (T, 3k)  Stiles is not stuck. To random passers-by it could appear that he is stuck, but he’s completely capable of getting down off this motherfucking tree all by himself. There was absolutely no reason to call the fire department, Isaac, given that they have a perfectly serviceable ladder in the garage, and Stiles totally has the agility of a jungle cat. Climbing down this tree should be a piece of cake. It’s just that, you know: tiny kitten.
  • stop, drop and roll by thepsychicclam (M, 12k)  Stiles knows he’s in trouble when he invites the Beacon Hills Fire Department into his third grade classroom and he can’t stop staring at a certain scruffy fireman. But after the third graders take a field trip to the fire station and participate in the fire department’s holiday canned food drive, Stiles can’t ignore his crush any longer.
  • boy in blue by kaihire (G,5k)  Stiles gets injured on the job because he’s just awesome like that, and it turns out his usual massage therapist isn’t in. Unfortunately, the masseur who’s replacing him is precisely the reason Stiles ended up getting hurt in the first place.
  • untitled by thepsychicclam (T,2k)  stiles is a waiter at the diner down the street from the fire station, and fireman!derek comes in frequently for lunch.
  • everybody loves good neighbors by stilinskisparkles (M, 7k)  What about an “everything run-down and suddenly a guy falls through the ceiling; now there’s a hole in the ceiling of my bedroom”-AU thing?
  • just when you think you’re in control by trilliastra (T, 2k) While Josh rushes to grab his things and Stiles tries to clean some of the mess on Josh’s table, the door opens with a bang and suddenly Derek Hale is running inside, disheveled and clearly upset.Stiles would feel sorry for him – and in another situation, he would even stop to admire Derek’s perfect body and face – but he crushed a little boy’s heart and that’s unforgivable.
    In which Stiles thinks Derek is the worst uncle when he’s, actually, the best.
  • Through Fire by hazelNuts (G, 1k) “‘you’ve just been saved from a burning building and you’re begging to go back in to save your pet cat’ au - sterek - that cat has been by stiles’ side since forever and his mom give it to him and even tho he’s old and almost blind please save him"Derek watches as Boyd tries to stop a man from running back into the burning apartment building. Boyd towers over him, but the guy is a fighter and his colleague is having some real trouble holding him back. The guy is aiming for the places he knows he will hurt the firefighter the most, his crotch, his solar plexus. He even tries to kick him in the knees. This isn’t going to end well for either man if someone doesn’t stop that guy soon.
  • Emergency Hugs by LadyDrace (T, 2k) EMERGENCY HUGS
    INQUIRE WITHIN The sign looks cheerful enough, as much as a sign can when composed of entirely letters in a sturdy black frame, but Stiles doesn’t know why he’d stopped to stare at it. Okay, that’s a lie. He does know.
  • untitled by mad-madam-m (Not Rated, 1k) “Would you like to donate to the Beacon Hills Firefighters Fund?”  Stiles gapes at the specimen of a man standing beside his car, holding out a giant rubber boot with a cheerful “DONATE” sign taped to it. The man is tall, dark, bearded, and frowning, though Stiles can’t tell if the latter is because he’s genuinely unhappy or just protecting his eyes from the sun’s glare.  “Uh,” Stiles says, because it’s too early for him to think when he’s looking at a firefighter who might as well have walked out of his wet dreams. 
  • Cooking With (A) Fire(man) by literaryoblivion (G, 2k) After a kitchen accident in his dorm, Stiles is forced to take a cooking class as punishment and ends up meeting a very attractive fireman to share his cooking station with… and maybe a few other things.
  • untitled by howlnatural (T, 2k) After Tilly the three-legged jack russell, Dr McCall - the aforementioned vet -seemed to know instinctively which tragic dog cases Derek wouldn’t be able to turn down. Dana the Australian shepherd and Bobby the former police dog who’d gone deaf in a meth lab explosion followed, and then Derek had moved to a bigger place and kind of forgotten about dating. Until Stiles.
  • Emergency Love by Kedreeva (E, 14k) Wherein Derek is a firefighter and Stiles is a paramedic, and they just keep meeting.
  • Hot Like Burning by Leslie_Knope (T, 2.5k)  In which Derek is the grumpy neighborhood firefighter, and Stiles is a bit of a lovestruck idiot.
  • Cupboard Love by mklutz (G, 33k) He’s carefully balancing the sandwiches and the two biggest tupperware containers he could find that both had functioning lids when the front door opens and he almost drops everything right there in front of the stupid fountain. If that’s Derek Hale, he’s definitely not a mountain man.
  • untitled by stileshale (Not Rated, 1k) Derek is a firefighter and Stiles likes it when he comes home in his gear.
  • untitled by lycanthrophies (Not Rated, 2k)  Riling Derek up became a fun past time activity for Stiles pretty fast, because Derek tries so hard to be stoic sometimes, it’s really a highlight to see him crack open and either get adorably flustered, or—even better—make him laugh out loud.
The types as stereotypical anime protagonists:

ENTP: Spiky-haired teenage boy who gets in people’s faces all the time, is the head of some kind of sport organization at school, is probably late for class daily and gives motivational speaches to the people in his sport team.

INTJ: The dark-haired, cool twentysomething who sits at home and is unwillingly dragged into a magical adventure.

ESFJ: The super populare girl with impossible long hair whom everyone likes and who keeps talking about the power of friendship.

ISTJ: The heir to the dojo, the hard-working, decent son of a great father who will do everything to restore his family’s legacy.

INFP: The library nerd who has secret crushes on all the guys around her and doesn’t act on them, is trying and failing at being an artist.

ENFJ: The overly emotional character who obsesses over a passion, also a part of the ‘gives great inspirational speaches’ club.

ENFP: The fast-talking magical girl with an abnormal hair color who can’t decide which guy she likes. Arranges study groups with her friends to pass the exams, barely passes the exam and overreacts emotionally to everything.

ISFJ: The helpful, collected older sister who is surrounded by rash and wild younger kids. She knows it all, and tries her best to stay out of the huge conflict waiting to happen. Despite great effort and a dislike for personal drama she gets dragged into it.

ISTP: The scarred badass who survived wars, witnessed slaughters, carries a huge sword and talks to people in a low rumble. Never cries but secretly sweet.

ESTP: The wild, jumpy, all-over-the-place adventurer who rushes off to build his latest invention or discover the next magical crystal.

ESFP: The artistic teenage girl who runs around, crying and being dramatic and making an impact on the life of the dreary, serious older boy she likes.

“You have to pretend you get an endgame. You have to carry on like you will; otherwise, you can’t carry on at all.”

— Becky Albertalli, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda


Spending the weekend with my two favorite Simons—Snow and Spier.

“At 14.3 hands this horse is perfect for a small child or 4’ tall elf”
Me, a human adult, with a 14.0 hand horse: 👌

Dark when he’s asleep is the most calm you’d ever see him. His movements and facial expressions are normally controlled and precise but when he’s asleep his face is actually relaxed, of course. He looks almost sweet, vulnerable, he doesn’t nap during the day bc he doesn’t want ppl to find him asleep and vulnerable

He snores, not loudly, but the kind of quiet soft snore that’s deep in the chest, a calm rumble

He’s a deep sleeper, I imagine with the broken body he has that he’s often in A Lot of pain, that’s exhausting to go through and he always looks forward to flopping into bed at the end of the day. He deserves a break

U bet he cuddles a pillow- or anything really, he likes 2 have something in his arms! Which ofc tends to be a pillow or his duvet

anonymous asked:

d

d is what it says in Stiles’ phone, looking sparse and strange next to the elaborate nicknames and full names of everyone else on the contact list. He supposes he put it in there to make it easier for him to forget. 

But he was wrong. 

Every time he flicks through his contact list– its alphabetical, the d is still there, reminding him of what isn’t. 

A House Stellium occurs in an individuals charts when four or more heavenly bodies are located in the same House, focusing all of their energy there. How your House Stellium is truly expressed depends on if you also have a Sign Stellium and your Sun Sign. Read more here.

First House - The House of Self - Aries
Your identity is your focus. You may find yourself focusing too much on yourself, your appearance, your needs. You feel so self conscious that it is emotionally disabling and you may find yourself swept up in others, bending to their will because you care more about how you look in the eyes of others than anything else. You express your insecurities by being loud, bold and brash - by overcompensating. You have little patience and self control. You need a partner to balance you out in life or work. On the other hand you are intuitive and know how to charm others. You are very good with physical communication and you will often say more through your body than your words.

Second House - The House of Possessions - Taurus
You can spend money very easily and may find yourself in financial trouble. You struggle to let go of anything, seeing the value in everything, and fear to go without. You will exhaust yourself by clinging to your possessions to the point where the stress causes illness. Learning to let go will be your greatest struggle in life. You can be possessive but also remarkably gregarious. You need security in life, whatever that may mean to you, but it usually is tied to the material world. You are grounded and support others. Those with this Stellium often are in touch with their body and will practice arts that involve movement.

Third House - The House of Mind - Gemini
Your mind is always going and you can get wrapped up in your thoughts. You struggle to relax and often shake and jitter because your mind is racing. You can think so much that you never even act. Easily becoming obsessed, you loose perspective and struggle to see things as they are whether it be about a book you are writing or the child you’re raising. You crave new experiences to learn from. You need others to communicate with at all times but you can often talk at people, not with, because you carry a message that needs to be let out. Often, those with this Stellium tell stories in some way: writing, painting, directing, etc because they have such a strong perspective or story that they simply need to share.

Fourth House - The House of Home - Cancer
Your home life may feel tumultuous because with a Fourth House Stellium it is easily upset by transits. You feel trapped in the past, reliving moments in your mind, unable to let go of old hurts and grudges but also those beautiful moments of triumph will feel as if they are your only ones and you’ll never feel anything more beautiful. You need to learn to focus on the present and look forward to the future because you have many great moments ahead of you. You need a home, a place to call your own. Your emotions may overwhelm you at times but reign them in and they will be your greatest gift. You often focus on family, even those who do not desire children or to marry will surround themselves with friends so close they are like siblings. You are a humanitarian in many ways and seek to help others or the environment.

Fifth House - The House of Creativity - Leo
Drama rules your life. You can create problems in your own head without realizing. Over the top is your thing whether you are a stay at home mom or on Broadway. Impersonal relationships often become personal in one way or another. You may be a little more immature than most, even innocent in ways. You often connect well with children and animals, having a bit of an instinct for parenting and caring. You always are creating and thinking, and you must express yourself and these ideas in one way or another. They are often fantastic artists.

Sixth House - The House of Health - Virgo
You can be a bit of a workaholic who never relaxes, a perfectionist who slaves over the smallest of tasks in hopes of perfecting it. You need to be in charge, you have to do things the right way and the only way is to do it yourself right? You can work so hard that you literally make yourself ill. You need to learn to delegate your workload. You often commit yourself to helping others and will do everything you can to help. You can also be terribly judgmental, even cruel. These individuals will often be doctors, nurses, or other public service types. You live to serve.

Seventh House - The House of Partnership - Libra
Those with this Stellium will either seek out a relationship no matter what the cost or flee from them. Dealing with others can be a struggle for you. It is hard for you to stay in a relationship or even dare to begin one or it is all too easy, a complete necessity. You are a bit of a loner or such a social butterfly that you know everyone there is to know. Indecisive in relationships, you feel lost and can’t decide what to do or what not to do despite your instincts, so you will often avoid them. Once you are in a relationship you may loose yourself completely to the other person, you put all of your energy into it and obsess over it. You may flee from relationships no matter what the cost. You are charming, fashionable, and social. Perception is your greatest gift.

Eighth House - The House of Sex - Scorpio
The Eighth House is the House of all things beyond our control, of life, death, and the occult. You may study the occult, psychology, medicine, and science in order to gain control over what is uncontrollable. You may have experienced many difficult situations early on in life and feel mature and or cynical due to them. You must be in control of your money and finances. You won’t let others touch your money and are the type to hide it in drawers and under loose floorboards, unsure about even putting it in the bank. You struggle to know when to let go, when things are not your fault even when they are beyond anyone’s control. You may feel detached from your sexuality or obsessed with sex.

Ninth House - The House of Discovery - Sagittarius
The mind is your home. You may be too stuck in your own head and struggle to accept reality. Learning is important to you, you are often philosophical, spiritual or religious though you may jump from one belief to another to another at the drop of a hat. You may be absolutely obsessed with your beliefs and try to force them on others. You are so caught up with studying life that you hardly ever live it. You are the type to always be curious and asking questions, never afraid or even aware of crossing the line of what’s too personal. You may be a little wacky but you’re a lot of fun and always kind. You are a teacher at heart and often will get a job teaching anywhere from preschool to college, even teaching through writing or counseling.

Tenth House - The House of Status - Capricorn
You often clash with authority figures in your life. Often there is a lot of tension between you and your parents, perhaps your father in particular. And you hate to work for anyone but yourself which leads to rebellion in the home and in schooling. You need to be your own boss and will seek a job that allows you to be. With that said, you are still a strong and solid person. You are ambitious, perhaps even cut-throat, and you cut to the chase in everything you do. You’re the type who gets the most work done with the least effort. You are probably a workaholic and never give yourself a break.

Eleventh House - The House of Community - Aquarius
You try to please everyone. You will be swallowed whole by the community, never your own person but always someone’s shadow. Herd mentality is your defining point. You throw yourself into group causes and societal issues. Even in one-on-one situations you may take on the qualities of the other. You may even feel empathic. On the plus side, you are the type who can be friends with honestly anyone and often are. You are often very aware of societal issues - even ones on the other side of the world. You may feel born too early or too late, like you are out of time, and you’re always very aware of this. You have very progressive ideas and stand behind them no matter what. You often work with people but need to do so on a smaller scale and focus on yourself.

Twelfth House - The House of Self-Undoing - Pisces
You have a need to work with others. You’re natural drive is to support others at all times and you will often loose yourself to this. You still need to take time to be alone but often don’t. You don’t ever seek the spotlight and for this reason will shrink away from even positive attention, even from the support that they need in return. You may be a little out of touch with reality naturally, a dreamy new-age type of person, so you can easily be caught up in religion and spirituality to the point of becoming a fanatic or becoming involved in dangerous situations. You may have almost preternatural insight verging on psychic. They often take on roles where they support others and are behind the scenes of things.

Listen

She has so much to say

but i know she will never

say it.

She’s used to being shutdown;

I’ve seen the way she takes it,

letting the others speak louder

and longer than her,

but that doesn’t mean she likes it.

I asked her once

why she didn’t just stop them,

why not interrupt them

as they have done to her,

but she’s much too polite for that.

I know the answer despite the question

and it hurts me as I know

it hurts her.

And I know

as time comes to pass

that she will never let go

of all the little things

she kept inside herself,

of the words she didn’t say

and the stories she could’ve told.

Only when her skin has become leather

and her bones creak with age

will she spill out her stories,

but what will it matter

when nobody even cares to listen.

anonymous asked:

Do you have any Sterek fic recs for sleeping together? I've got a bit of a craving :p

sleeping as in sharing a bed and sleeping next to each other and/or cuddles right right right i got you i got you

these are some with sleeps

  • little spoon by bibliosexxual (T, 4k)  To save money while attending college in NYC, Stiles and Derek decide to rent one tiny apartment together. With one bed.
  • untitled by grimm (Not Rated, 3k) By the time he’s supposed to meet up with Stiles, though, Derek’s a wreck. He knows he’s being ridiculous; this isn’t a date, it’s entirely professional even if it’s weird as hell, and he knows Kira wouldn’t direct him to someone who’s an asshole, but still. Derek feels like he’s in high school again, getting ready for his first ever date. His fucking palms are getting sweaty; he has to scrub them against his pants before opening the door to the coffeeshop.
  • Cuddle Therapy by alisvolatpropiis (Not Rated, 3k) “Dude, did you know that Derek’s into dudes?” Scott asks the question as he shoves a folded piece of meat lover’s pizza in his mouth, last few words turning to mumbled mush. 
  • I Need A Hug by literaryoblivion (M, 1k)  Today has been the absolute worse. It’s not even supernatural related either, it’s just normal human, college student shit, but Stiles is just done. So he texts Scott: “I need a hug. get here ASAP.“ Only it’s not Scott that gets the text, but Derek, who shows up willing to give Stiles that hug anyway.
  • untitled by petals42 (Not Rated, 1k) It’s not that Stiles is only affectionate when Derek’s asleep.
  • We’ll Get There One Day by Captain_Loki (T, 3k) “I…I didn’t…I didn’t cuddle you!” Stiles shouted it a bit maniacally, hoping the more surprise he expressed the less Derek would be compelled to kill him. “I know,” Derek replied easily, sitting up and stretching, muscles in his shoulder popping. “I did.” The whole pack stopped their movements to stare. “Because you sleep like a spaz, Stiles,” Derek grumbled.
