ceramics is fun

Two at once!

From @seangarrettceramics - I like to call this test “Sibling Rivalry” because each one of my hands have their own skills and downfalls to throwing pottery. Because I’m left handed, my left hand is more adventurous and drastic with its movements because it feels more comfortable doing so, leading to a sharper and wider bowl. My right hand is more cautious with its movements and will complete more of its tasks after the left hand attempts it, leading to a more upright and less drastic angle to the bowl. Which one did better? #ceramics #clay #potter #pottery #wheelthrown #wheelthrowing #stoneware #stonewarepottery #competition #siblings #siblingrivalry #headtohead

Imagine Sam’s reaction when you get nervous on a case and end up just word vomiting a cover story...

“No! Sam! I don’t think we should do this now! We should just wait and–”

“Too late… I’m knocking!”

“Sam! Don’t! Dammit!” you stomped your foot in protest and made a grab for his arm but you were too slow to stop his knuckles from rapping on the door.

The old screen door creaked open and the white-haired, elderly lady peered out at the two of you. “Yes? Can I help you?”

You waited to see if Sam would say something. Of course he didn’t. 

“Umm. Hi. Yes… we–we’re just…” you glanced anxiously around, trying to come up with something, anything to explain why you had knocked on this woman’s door, “we’re…with the local radio station and we were wondering if you’d like to have a chance to win free tickets to–” your eyes landed on the little ceramic pig-shaped doorstop next to the rug, “the 3rd annual Pig…Show?”

_ _ _ _ _ _ 

As the old woman shut the door and you walk down the porch steps side-by-side, you tried to head Sam off in advance. “Shut up. Shut up. Shut up,” you muttered through your clenched teeth.

Sam pressed his lips together in a largely failed attempt to prevent a smile. “Hey, Y/N. I was wondering if you’d like a chance to win free tickets to the 1st annual worst-cover-story-ever show? First prize will be awarded to a brand new contender–”

“Shut up!” you said, putting a hand over your face. “I hate you…”

[LOUD YELLING] ah yes, the cutest cuties that ever cutied. 

  • Who kills the bugs:The bug-killing falls to Nitori on default. Rin screamed bloody murder the first time he saw one in their dorm. (“I wasn’t scared it only it took me by surprise!!”). Nitori took that as a sign that he would have to kill them from then on. He calls Momo sometimes, however, knowing he enjoys bugs more than the average person. 
  • Who hogs the sheets:Nitori wraps himself up like a burrito much to Rin’s annoyance who just wants to cuddle his boyfriend, so Rin ends up getting into the burrito with him. The sheets end of up on the floor in the morning, anyhow. 
  • Who hates mornings: Rin’s the morning person in the relationship; Nitori won’t get up early if he can help it, but if it’s something important he’s usually the first one up. Rin finds Nitori absolutely charming in the mornings (“I could eat you up”) with his messed up hair and pouty face.
  • Who’s cranky before they had their coffee:Nitori, going back to the morning person thing. 
  • Who’s doesn’t like their mother in law:Nitori and Mrs. Matsuoka are honestly the bestest friends. Ever since she laid eyes on him, she wouldn’t stop doting over him “where on earth did you find on this darling boy, Rin? Honestly, Nitori please take care of my son he can be quite the handful. Your eyes are absolutely beautiful dear.” Rin is also really fond of Nitori’s parents and vice versa. They were at first doubtful of Rin because of his intimidating appearance, but once they saw how Rin gazed at Nitori, they knew it was love. 
  • Who drives:Nitori does. He actually got his driver’s license before Rin. 
  • Who gets horny in awkward public places: Rin Matsouka. Nitori has a habit of constantly and absentmindedly expressing his affection and it’s especially when Nitori holds Rin’s hand when he’s nervous or happily sighs of how happy he is, when Rin feels like he could jump the boy and smother him in kisses.
  • Who had a scene phase:  Little!Rin Matsouka thought it would be really cool to adopt a new style so he opted for scene. It only lasted a short while as he was always rather wild in skipping through different looks. 
  • Who wore braces: Nitori did. Rin didn’t know until he found a picture and he found it adorable.
  • Who got bullied: Rin and Nitori both did when they were younger. It didn’t bother Rin as much, honestly, but it did when Nitori told him the same thing happened to him. Rin wouldn’t let Nitori go from an embrace for a good hour when Nitori told him. 
  • Who collects ceramic elephants:Nitori has an eye for not-so-conventional things. It was during the time he and Rin were traveling in Asia and happened to stop by India. Nitori freaked out over a cute blue ceramic elephant. Before Rin knew he was coming come to an adorable Nitori and a collection of mini ceramic elephants. 

this was really fun, thank you!!

send me a ship! (´∇ノ`*)ノ
