childhood vibes
Why are grown-ups embracing children's fashions?
High street brands are currently enamoured with unicorns, mermaids, My Little Pony and Polly Pocket.

I got asked a few questions and was quoted in part of this BBC article. :)
Cute childhood retro vibes are huge right now!~
Let’s all just have fun with fashion, yeah? ^_^

P.S. Am pretty uncomfortable with the focus on Lime Crime at the start though, but for the topic it is unfortunately actually relevant…

Castle On The Hill (Cisco Ramon X Reader)(Platonic!Barry Allen X Reader)

“(Y/N)? Come on (Y/N) where are you going?” 

I continued down the silver halls, keys gripped tightly in my hands. The sound of footsteps and rushing lightning barely caught me off of my stride, passing by the two meta’s who I considered to be my closest friends.

“Meet me at the Mirus Ruins.” Was all i said, sliding into a closing elevator. My gaze flicked to the two men. Barry’s eyes full of confusion, and Cisco’s full of love, as a grin spread across his face.

“What is this place?” Barry asked, walking beside Cisco as they passed through the completely lavish groves of the wooded area.

“When (Y/N) and I were kids, we dreamed up a country where no one grew old and everyone were hero’s. Everyone had an epic story. We called this little patch of land the ruins of that great civilization. The Mirus Ruins.” Cisco explained, running his fingers along the ferns that he remembered memorizing.

The sound of cracking twigs caught the men’s attention, as I rounded the corner. A half destroyed flag in hand, and a journal clasped in the other. Cisco walked towards me, placing a hand on my hips as his lips connected with my forehead.

“Come on Barry.” We said at the same time, turning and sprinting to a clearing just beyond the trees. Barry was easily able to catch up, but was taken aback by the view that greeted him.

The trees seemed to stretch out for miles past the cliff, the mountains capping and dancing across the curve of the earth, shadowing castles to the ground. Each tree shown a different shade of green, singing there songs through the wind, obscuring the waterfall and river that would have gone unnoticed just beneath the cliff.

Cisco stood at the edge of the cliff, his eyes tearing up at the familiar sight.

“I missed this place.” He whispered, holding his hands out to me. I gladly took one, moving to stand behind him.

“I was panicking, I needed to get away.” I said, glancing back at Barry as he walked forward, starstruck.

“What had you scared?” Barry asked, still enraptured by the landscape.

“Just my own thoughts Mr. Allen. Losing friends, growing old. Things of that nature.” I said as I pulled Cisco to the ground with me. Barry sat down as well, giving me a few worried glances before casting his gaze down to the river.

“Growing up means death is sooner and I’m just gonna keep losing and losing till I want to lose.” I mumbled, gripping the crisp grass in my hand.

“That’s too far from now.” Cisco mumbled back. He reached across me, taking the raggedy old flag I had found. Mirus’s flag.

“You remember making this old thing?” He laughed.

“I thought it would have been destroyed by now. Maybe this place just respects it?” I replied. 

“Nerds.” Barry chuckled, causing a scoff from Cisco and a laugh from me.

“What if it does?” I asked.

“Then I hope it respects me too.”


Yes I know it has no real plot. Yes I know it makes no sense. 

It’s a passion project spawned from a dream, Bridge to Terabithia, and my own breakdown last night.

I sobbed out the phrase, “Growing up means death is sooner and I’m just gonna keep losing and losing till I want to lose.”

Plus, Ed Sheeran. Enough said.

That’s just how it goes.

I’m sorry that I haven’t truly uploaded a fic since October. High school has been kicking my ass, and im just trying.

I hope this satisfies you all so you don’t leave for now.

Please don’t go…

So I saw somewhere that they were talking about remaking The Outsiders movie and personally I think they should remake the show if anything and make it seem more realistic

I honestly don’t want a remake… It’d be too controversial because making it more realistic would boost the rating to an R (the original was already promoted to PG-13 after the rating’s creation).

That would also bring about the debate of whether or not it should be advertised as a kids’ movie, considering the book is intended for kids. It’s a book about friendship and belonging, primarily, so that would kind of trigger that debate.

On the other hand, those are issues kids deal with and we shouldn’t try to hide that. It’d be pretty similar to the whole Thirteen Reasons Why controversy, really.

Another dilemma for me is the casting. I don’t really want a remake because you already know they’ll bring in known Hollywood actors. I don’t want Holland Roden or Madelaine Petsch to play Cherry, as much as I love the actresses, and I wouldn’t want Dave Franco to be Sodapop.

I’d want the cast to be virtually unknown and the actual age of the roles they’re playing— but you just wouldn’t get that, unless the film was an independent (for the most part, and that theoretically means a lower budget).

I really love the idea but the balance between happiness and violence would get blurred. I’d personally want a cooler capture of the film, but then you’d be losing that childhood 80’s vibe everyone remembers the film for. It’d have to be really pulled off.


Remember when YOU:

used to believe in Magic?

seriously pretended that you could fly?

played for hours with pieces of painted plastic, painted cardboard boxes, a shiny rock or a hunk of chalk?

was transfixed by the wonder of snow, the splash of the ocean and the push of the wind on your back?

Headcanons: Guang-Hong Ji/Leo de la Iglesia

I’m kind of sort of infatuated with this ship right now so have some headcanons aha

  • They have this whole childhood best friends vibe (I’ve got your back, so nothing can touch you) but they have only known each other for a couple years or so. When they first met, Phichit was confused because they acted like childhood friends but claimed they had never met. They just clicked. 
  • They video chat as often as humanly possible, when at the ice rink so they can celebrate the perfection of that short program Leo was choreographing, or when they’re both home on their beds and Ji needs help with the school work.
  • They plan trips four times a year. It was two at the start of their friendship, but quickly it became apparent that neither of them could function without the other. Their visits include sight seeing, action movie marathons, game nights, and messing around at the closest ice rink. 
  • Game nights entail Disney Scene it and RISK, which Ji kicks ass at. Leo introduces Ji to nachos, which they devour whilst playing the games. It’s always Tostitos Rounds and Salsa, sour cream, and grated cheddar cheese. Leo puts it in the microwave and the smell fills the kitchen and dining room attached, and Ji just. Melts. in his chair.
  • They promise things to each other, like “if I land this jump, I’ll help you study for exams,” and “if you ace your exams, I’ll choreograph your short program just how you like it,” and “If I win gold at Skate America, I’ll date you when you turn eighteen.’
  • They’re just waiting for his birthday now.
  • But they’ve kissed before. They let themselves kiss once during every visit because Leo admitted that yes, it’s torture to just kiss once, but he would DIE if he had to wait those years without touching him once.
  • Leo makes playlists for Ji on Spotify with the oddest titles, but he compiles workout playlists and think-of-me playlists, and you-can-pull-through playlists for when he doesn’t think he’ll ever be able to survive school AND competitive skating. 
  • Leo is always ready to give a warm hug, but Ji gets embarrassed easily, so it’s always in private. When they hold each other, skin touching, heads tucked over shoulders, and eyes falling closed, they both feel like they can take on the world.
  • Leo comes from a religious family and he loves God but he loves Ji more, and he knows that’s okay. 
  • They both don’t have a lot of confidence, and constantly need reassurance that they are okay as they are. They both understand how it feels, and are always giving what the other needs because they know intimately the pain of not having it. And they never wish pain upon who they love.
  • When they are tired, they sleep with Leo on his back and Ji draped half on him. They tangle their legs and press their stomachs together, and they wrap their arms as tight as they can, and they never let go. 

I have a million more so just ask honestly. I may have to write some fics for them because they are just too cute asdfghjkl. Thanks for reading : )
