ok but stormpilot makes me so happy?

whenever i think about them running into each other’s arms (like those clichéd scenes from romance movies) it makes me feel so warm and fuzzy and then the way they look at each other is so loving. even if you look at it from a friendship point of view, they have such a lovely, loving relationship that only comes with knowing someone for a long time, yet they have kindled this friendship within the span of what? a few days? maybe a week? i just think it’s so beautiful and it’s really just a great ship overall.

Auntie Anne’s Copycat Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Bites

Prep Time: 45 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours, 35 minutes
Yield: 6 servings


1 (¼ oz) pkg active dry yeast
1 cup warm water, 110 degrees
2 Tbsp granulated sugar
2 Tbsp packed light-brown sugar
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp salt
1 ½ cups bread flour
1 to 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
3 cups hot water
¼ cup baking soda
½ cup butter, melted
½ cup granulated sugar
1 Tbsp ground cinnamon

Cream Cheese Dipping Sauce, recipe follows


In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, combine 1 cup warm water, yeast and ½ tsp granulated sugar, whisk to dissolve and allow to rest 10 minutes. Fit mixer with whisk attachment and mix in remaining granulated sugar (1 Tbsp + 2 ½ tsp), brown sugar, vegetable oil and salt. With mixer set on low speed, slowly add in bread flour and mix until well blended. Switch attachment to the hook attachment and slowly add in all-purpose flour. Knead mixture on low speed until smooth an elastic, adding up to an additional ¼ cup flour as needed (you want a soft dough and it may seem slightly sticky). Transfer to a lightly buttered bowl, cover with plastic wrap and allow to rest in a warm place until doubled in size (I like to let mine rest in the oven with the light on), 1 ½ hours.

Punch dough down and divide into 6 equal portions. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Dust tops of dough lightly with flour and cover the ones you aren’t currently rolling loosely with plastic wrap (to prevent drying). Roll each portion into a rope about 24 to 28-inches long (you can do this by rolling or the method of pulling on each side and flicking upward like a jump rope while slapping onto the countertop). Cut into bite size pieces (about 1 ¼-inches each). Pour hot water and baking soda into a mixing bowl and whisk to dissolve. Using a slotted spoon, dip several pieces of dough into the water mixture, then lift and allow excess water to drip off, then transfer to a Silpat lined baking sheet. Repeat process working in batches and using two baking sheets, and rewarm water in microwave until hot between batches. Bake in preheated oven 8 - 11 minutes until tops are nicely golden brown. Remove from oven and using a slotted spoon, dip into melted butter, toss to evenly coat then lift and shake off excess. Transfer to a plate and allow to rest 2 minutes (I felt this just gave them time to absorb the butter, rather than having it all end up clumping the cinnamon sugar mixture).

Meanwhile in a small mixing bowl, whisk together granulated sugar and cinnamon until well blended. Dip butter coated pretzels into cinnamon sugar and toss to evenly coat. Serve warm with cream cheese dipping sauce (these are best served warm so I’d recommend rewarming them once they’ve cooled. To do so microwave on a plate for 10 - 20 seconds).

| Movie | Bakugou Katsuki


“I said,” you spoke offhandedly, eyes trailing the blonde ambling into the room with his mail. “We should go watch a movie on your day off.”

“Oh wouldn’t I just love that?” His voice was utterly drenched in sarcasm as he dropped the package, pressing a hand into the column of his neck with an irritated hiss. He sat without a semblance of grace, kicking the chair back.

“What? Why not?” You whined, begged, leaned over the table to invade his personal space. He batted away your flailing arms and held away your face with a single hand, eyes never moving from the box he was opening. 

“I don’t have time,” he grumbled.

“Please?” Your muffled voice came from underneath his palm. Peering through the gaps in his spread fingers your tone softened, lips pressing gently to the rough skin. “You’re always training.” The young hero barely had any time to do anything, and it was driving you nuts. The both of you needed a time to rest from the hustle and bustle, and needed it bad. “Spend some time with me?”

Bakugou glared down at you. You found yourself being lost in the tunnel of those blood red eyes - a familiar storm within them quietly brewing, calm for now but ready to rage when necessary. 

He grunted a sigh, reluctantly submitting to your request. “Fine.”

You positively beamed, wiggling your eyebrows. “Yes! It’s a date then.”

“Not a date,” he grumbled.

“Shh,” You flicked his forehead. “Get into the spirit you brat~”

This’ll be nice, you thought to yourself with a calm smile as you jumped over the couch, dodging the chair that was thrown at you by the enraged hero. A nice, peaceful escape from the stress and excitement. After all, what could go wrong?

I just wanted to say something positive! I was at the mall waiting for a friend and supper nervous because I was alone, so I stopped at UncleAnnie's for some cinnamon pretzle bites. The total came to $6.03 and I had pulled out $6 already but wasn't ready for the extra $0.03 and was fumbling a lot when the cashier said she'd cover it for me! It was so nice of her, especially because the people in front of me were being jerks and making comments about the prices! Thank you so much!



Bonus’s bonus (?):


New office noodles!!

Today we took into our care a pair (1.1) of Antaresia maculosa, Australian Spotted Pythons, from a colleague who is leaving for two years to do a postdoc in Barcelona. These snakes are tiny (about 1 m long or so) and enchanting, but extremely bitey. It’s gonna take a lot of work to get them hand tame, if I decide to try. I am toying with the names ‘Cinnamon Schnapps’ and 'Goldschläger’ for them, but I have to figure out how to identify the individuals first.


remember when yoojung didn’t slay you? yeah, me neither

* Before fighting Yukari *
  • Kuroh: I'm going to take him out of town and finish the job now!
  • Shiro: What about dinner?
  • Kuroh: Shiro, this is kind of important.
  • Shiro: How about dessert?
  • Kuroh: Well, I suppose there's time for dessert.
  • Shiro: And coffee?
  • Kuroh: All right. A quick cup of coffee. THEN TAKE HIM OUT OF TOWN AND FINISH THE JOB!

Suddenly I See You Ch. 3

Scenario: You and Minho have been friends since the sandbox. He’s your best friend and you love him like a brother; never noticing once that he was madly in love with you. You arrive for your first day at Seoul National University to start your life on the path your parents planned out for you. You’d calculated all the variables, but never calculated on the one you never saw coming: Woo Jiho. 

A/N: Okay so chaper 3 focuses mainly on Zico (have no fear Minho is getting his own chapter 4). I had so many fun ideas for this chapter and I just feel like I completely ended up dropping the ball on this. I’ve fixed it as much as I can, and I hope you guys enjoy it all the same!

Genre: Mino x Reader and Zico x Reader

The room felt blaringly bright. The sun shining into the room unfiltered by the lack of blinds. Your eyes fluttered open for a moment before resigning back to being closed. It felt too damn early to wake up and your body agreed. Too bad whoever was calling didn’t feel the same way as you.

You groaned into your desk as your hand fumbled out blindly for your phone. You distinctly remember setting it somewhere around the mess of papers you’d created overnight. What time did you exactly finish up all of your homework?  

The sound of shuffling papers faded into the background as another chorus of quacks started up again. You knew that ringtone. That was Minho’s ringtone. You’d set that for him back in your senior year of high school. The two of you were inside a grocery store when you’d stumbled upon the largest stacks of rubber ducks you’d ever seen.
