I Give Up - part 26 (A Baekhyun Series) the

The bedroom door closed with a click and you were halfway out of the bed scrambling in much of the same way as Baekhyun had before he vanished through the bedroom door.

You tried to move as silently as possible and you found your clothes from yesterday on the bathroom floor. Hygiene be damned, this was an emergency.

You heard his voice through the door, much too close to where you sat with your heart in your throat on the edge of the bed.

For anon…enjoy!

“So, I might be able to stop by,” your boyfriend stated over the phone.
“Really?” you asked in surprise, “Are you sure your boss won’t mind?”
You could hear his smile through the phone. “That’s actually why I’m in town.”
“You’re already in town?” you chittered.
“Yeah. Driving to work right now, actually.”
Tony, your coworker, drove over a speed bump. “Ow!”
“What? What’s wrong?”
“Nothing, Spence. My idiot coworker decided to speed over a speed bump.”

You smacked Tony’s chest from the passenger seat. He smirked while raising a brow. You rolled your eyes. You realized how close you were to the crime scene.

“I have to go,” you told Spencer, “I’ll call later so we can meet up.”
“Of course,” he agreed before whispering, “I love you.”

You smiled softly before remembering your coworkers were in the same car.

“You too,” you stated shortly, “I’ll see you later.”

With that, you hung up. Feeling Tony and Ziva’s stares on you made you sigh.

“What?”
“You seeing someone, Y/N?” Tony teased.
You clenched your jaw to hide the blush. “Shut up, DiNozzo.”
Ziva laughed. “He’s incapable.”
“I’m just curious about this ‘Spence’ you were talking to,” the man defended, “Nothing wrong with learning a little about each other’s personal lives.”

You and Ziva shared a devious glance. She leaned forward, arching a brow.

“Is that so, Tony?”
The man nodded. “Yeah. It’s like learning each others favorite colors.”
“So,” you began to drawl, “you wouldn’t mind sharing where you sprinted off to last night?”
“More like leapt,” Ziva chimed.
Tony swallowed, parking the car. “Oh look, we’re here.”

His Human Mate - Part 2

You and Loki spend the entire night talking quietly on the couch. You talk about what life on Asgard was like, what being Tony’s sister is like, what his favorite magic spells are. It’s almost like a first date, but Tony is constantly glaring from the corner.

Loki leans closer, his lips brushing against your ear causing a shudder to run through you, “I believe, that Antony is displeased with your choice of company tonight, dove”

You let out a breathy chuckle, “He doesn’t control who I let court me”

Loki lets out an amused chuckle, “I wonder who the true Alpha of your little pack is”

Clint snorts and bursts into laughter, “Y/N’s obviously the one who runs the tower. Tony can’t deny her anything”

“It’s not nice to eavesdrop, Clint. I’m trying to have a conversation” You toss a pillow at him, but it’s easily caught and sent sailing back. Yelping when it hits you in the face you glare at the archer. “Meanie”

Loki chuckles, “Will you go out to dinner with me two days from now? Is that an acceptable first date?”

“I’d really like that, just let me know where you want to go tomorrow so I’ll know what to wear. I mean,” You look up at him through your lashes, making your voice breathy, “I’ve never been courted by a prince before”

His eyes dilate and he inhales, taking in your alluring scent, and the provocative brushes of your consciousness against his. “It is not something you will regret, dove”

“I hope not” You glance up when you hear a soft whine, Tony’s watching you, His shoulders are slumped and he looks tired, but be also looks like he will refuse to leave unless you do. Turning back to Loki, you whisper, “I have to go now, but I’ll see you tomorrow”

Loki brings you hand up to his mouth, giving you the barest brush of his fangs against the thin skin on the back of your hand, then pressing a kiss there before letting you go. “Good night, dove. I will see you on the morrow”

Standing up you hesitate for just a second before darting in and pressing a kiss to Loki’s cheek, “Dream of me, my prince” you breathe, making him shudder when your breath brushes against his ear.

When you pull back you smirk at his slightly dazed look, before turning and making your way to Tony.

“Y/N …” he whines, reaching out for you. The man looks exhausted, he hasn’t slept in 49 hours, and it was past time for some sibling snuggles.

“Come on, big brother, time for bed.” Tony lets out another whine, but he follows you to the elevator.

“When we get back to the penthouse you can shift and we’ll curl up in your room together”

As soon as the elevator doors open Tony starts to shift, easily flowing from his human form into his wolf form. Now in front of you is a brown wolf about the size of a small car. Tony lets out a soft chuff and nudges you further into the penthouse.

“I need to change into PJ’s first, Tones. Go get settled, I’ll be in there in a minute”

After you get dressed you head to Tony’s room. He’s already made a nest out of various blankets and pillows, and before you even get the chance to climb into bed Tony gently grabs you and pull you in.

“You impatient mutt!”

Tony just lets out another growl, shoving his cold nose against your neck. His body is practically covering your, making it so you can’t move. “Move over! You’re gonna smother me!”

Tony just lets out another whine and refuses to move. His mind brushes against yours, and while the wolf can’t use real words he can sent over feelings and images. Right now he’s sending over fear, “Why are you scared Tones? Neither of us are in any danger!”

A flash of you and Loki, and then another feeling, loneliness. “Do you think I’ll abandon you just because Loki’s courting me?” He lets out a soft growl in confirmation, “What did you think would happen? Did you think I would train you for Loki? That I would just forget about you? I’d never do that! You’re my brother! I’d never abandon family”

A feeling of relief flow through you, “You’re so stupid Tony, you really are lucky that I love you”

With a soft huff Tony settles down for the night. You’re glad that you and Tony managed to get your problems settled. Hopefully now he’ll be a little nicer to Loki.

Two days later finds you getting ready for your date when the alarm to assemble goes off. Both Tony and Steve are with you, helping you get ready. Steve was doing your hair, and Tony was looking through your closet, yelling about going shopping soon.

Sir, Captain Rogers, you are needed.

“Talk to me, J. What’s going on?”

HYDRA seems to have deployed a weapon. Sensors are unsure what type of weapon; however, SHIELD has called the Avengers to assemble, Sir.

“Thanks, J. Let the team know we’re on our way, and prepare the suit for me”

Of course, Sir.

Tony walks over and presses a kiss to your forehead, “You gonna be on the comms?”

“Yeah, I’ll head there now, can’t have you out there without some sort of conscience to keep you in line”

Steve chuckles, “I’m glad someone has a leash on him”

“Y/N! Have the sensors managed to find the HYDRA weapon yet?”

You quickly start scanning the cameras, “It looks like the earth quakes are being generated in the warehouse district. I don’t have an exact location, but I’m working on it”

“Well, can you work any faster?! It’s a little difficult to fire these support arrows when the buildings don’t stay still” Clint shouts as he once again has to relocate.

“I’m doing my best, just give me …”

Tower breach

Tony immediately starts swearing, “Shit, J. Can you tell who’s in the tower?”

Hostiles have entered through the roof; they are making their way through the tower. Sensors are reading 45 heat signatures

“Y/N you need to get out of there. Get into the Hulk-Out room”

“I can’t leave yet, Tony. I’m so close to finding the weapon! Just give me a few more minutes!”

“Please, dove! Get to safety!” Loki begged.

“If I don’t find this weapon more people will die! JARVIS I need some more time! Can you start locking doors? And set the Bots free to cause some trouble”

Of course, Y/N. We shall make it difficult to get to you, however I fear that we will not be enough to stop all of the hostiles

“This was nothing but I diversion! Y/N I’m coming back to the tower” Loki growls

“Diversion of not there are still civilians that need help!! Everyone just keep doing what you’re doing!”

Tony lets out an angry shout over the comm, “Knew I should have made you a suit! After this shit, I’m making you one, I don’t really care how much you bitch”

“Fine, after we stop the earthquakes, you can make me a suit. I won’t even stop you from making the suits that can move on their own! Now shut up so I can get to work”

JARVIS informs you every time a hostile gets to a new floor. They are quickly working their way through the tower, and you are franticly trying to find where the weapon is before you try to escape.

“I found it!” You shout, “It’s in the sewers! There’s an opening right underneath the old textile mill!”

“Thanks Y/N, now get to safety! Iron Man and I will make sure that the weapon is destroyed.”

“I’m going, Cap! Don’t get your panties in a twist”

Suddenly there was the click of a gun behind you, “Get up. Show me your hands, and get up slowly”

“Alright settle down, no need to use guns” You put your hands up and quietly stand. Everyone is shouting over the comms, asking what was going on.

“Take out the comm unit, and place it on the table. Can’t have Mr. Stark following us.”

“Alright. Guys I gotta go, have fun finishing up.“ You quickly put the comm down on the table. “So what do you plan to gain from this? I’m not the engineering genius, if you want a weapon built for you, then your kidnapping the wrong sibling”

The guy grins, “HYDRA has plans for you. Come quietly or we will have to use force.”

You smirk, “If you think I’ll go quietly, then you definitely have the wrong sibling”

Before you can even try to fight back, his gun guns go off. Pain tears through your stomach, and you look down in shock.

“You should have listened, Ms. Stark”

You hit the floor, “If I die” you rasp, “you’ll get nothing”

He crouches down in front of where you’ve collapse, “You won’t die, you don’t have to worry about that” Then he raises his fist and slams it down on the side of your face, knocking you out cold.

Tony lets out a shout when he hears the gunshot. “J! What happened?!?”

Unfortunately, the HYDRA agents have disconnected my cameras, I cannot see what is happening. However, my sensors indicate that Y/N has been injured and is currently being carried out of the tower and put in a black van.

“Follow the van, hack into every camera you have to and follow them as far as you can” Tony snaps. He should have gone back to the tower, he should have left the others to take care of the earthquakes, he should have protected his little sister.

“Anthony! Where is she?!?” Loki shouts. He looks frantic, “I heard the gunshot, do you know if she is alright?!”

“JARVIS was compromised, Y/n was hurt, and the HYDRA agents have her”

“WHY AREN’T YOU GOING AFTER HER?!?” Loki roars

Steve is the one who steps forward to help, “If any of us go after her right now, they’ll kill her. They’ve already shot her once, if we try to get to her now, they won’t hesitate to kill her”

Loki snarls, “We shouldn’t have left her alone. I should have gone as soon as this breached the tower”

Steve sighs, “She would never have forgiven you if you had let civilians die for her”

“I know, but as we speak she gets further away. We do not know what they want with her, we do not know anything!”

Finally looking up, Tony makes eye contact with Loki, “We’ll find her. We’ll find her and we’ll make them pay”

Loki nods, “Failure is not an option. I will begin a tracking spell as soon as we get back to the tower”

Tony nods and claps his hand on Loki’s shoulder, “HYDRA will regret taking her”

Loki smirks, “I look forward to making them suffer. No one harms a Prince’s mate without consequence”

The rest of the Avengers all nod. They may have only known Y/N for a short time but she has managed to wriggle her way into all their hearts. HYRDA will rue the day they decide to mess with the Avengers family.

ML’s Love Letter To Horror Movie Fans

I was rewatching Horrificator and Nino’s insistence on filming through a potential tragedy reminded me of that guy from Diary of the Dead, that guy from Cloverfield, etc..  That had me paying closer attention to how much this episode pays homage to Horror/Monster movie tropes. I was cackling so much, I decided to make a post to spread the hilarity.  

A huge thanks goes to TV Tropes, where you can find the description of each stereotype.  You can also click my headers for a direct link to each.  There is an existing list of tropes from this episode that I found halfway through doing my own list.  I couldn’t find an entry for every trope so the ones that are not linked I came up with myself.  Also, I didn’t include every single trope.

Thanks go to Miraculous, les aventures de Ladybug et Chat Noir (aka, Miraculous Ladybug) for gaining even more of my respect and for giving some mad love to us horror fans.  Enjoy!


We’re Making a Horror Movie Inside the Horror Movie

As seen in Diary of the Dead

first time

I was lightly head banging along to the song that echoed throughout the studio space. My makeup artist, Nina, let out a sigh of frustration, “Will you keep still” she said before breaking out into a smile. “Sorry,” I smirked, strumming my fingers against my leg instead. “I thought you were bringing your intern along today?” I asked, glancing up at her reflection. She nodded, “I am, but she’s not coming in until a bit later.”

A few minutes went by before I spoke again, “I saw that picture you posted on instagram last night of that face mask you made. Why can’t I ever wear anything like that?” Nina chuckled slightly as she padded powder over my face, “Because you’re supposed to look good, not like some monster.” “I’m going to request a shoot like that, maybe for the next album. It looked really cool,” I said as she replied with a quiet thank you.

I had been at the studio for about an hour, and finally the photo shoot had begun. I was stood against a black backdrop, with two huge lights shining on me. The typical set up of a photographer with a big camera, with a laptop set up on the side. People scurrying around in the background either getting coffee, getting the next look ready or just trying to look busy. “Ok Shawn, let’s lighten the mood a little. What’s your favourite song right now?” the photographer asked, holding the camera loosely in his hand. “It’d have to be Castle On the Hill by Ed Sheeran,” I replied. The photographer glared at the guy who was near the music system, seconds later the song was bouncing off the walls. I had been up for a while, but was yet to actually feel awake. It didn’t matter how many coffees I had, music always seemed to help more.

The shoot’s pace quickened as the camera flashed every other second, as I changed my pose in simple ways. “Brilliant Shawn, these are coming out great” the photographer called out. I nodded and smiled as I stood still and pushed my hand through my hair. As the flash went off, I looked passed the set up and over at the stairs near the entrance. A girl dressed in a denim skirt and striped white top, covered with a tanned seude jacket hurried down the stairs. No one else seemed to pay attention to the fact that you could hear her singing along to the song, swaying her hips slightly as she took each step.

I slowly removed my hand from my hair as my eyes continued to follow her movement. “Perfect Shawn,” I heard the photographer say before the flash took over my view. I blinked a few times, “Ok, let’s start the next look.” I felt my cheeks heat up slightly as I went back to the chair in front of the mirror. “You alright?” Andrew asked. I nodded, “Yeah, those lights are just a little hot.”  

I stared at the mirror and watched as the girl stopped once she met Nina, they spoke briefly before they started approaching me. I quickly sat up and combed through my hair, making sure I looked somewhat decent. “Shawn, this is (Y/N), she’s my intern” Nina smiled, placing her hand on the girls shoulder. “Nice to meet you,” (Y/N) said boldly sticking her hand out. I took it and shook it slowly, “Hey” I fidgeted in my chair as she let go of my hand and grabbed a stool nearby, dragging it so she could sit beside the mirror. “(Y/N’s) just gonna be watching me today, as this is her first time on a set like this. Is that ok?” I looked at (Y/N) who sat pretty much in front of me, her eyes glued to me as if I was part of a science experiment a teacher was demonstrating. “Sure,” I muttered.

My eyes flickered between my hands in my lap and (Y/N). She removed her coat and placed it on her lap as she leaned down into her bag, pulling out a pad and paper. “Oh by the way, I saw that mask you were working on. The one you posted on instagram last night,” she said as she searched through her pad for a blank page. “Oh yeah, what do you think?” Nina replied as she made me lean my head back slightly. “It looked awesome, I’ve done one similar - not as advanced and perfect obviously,” (Y/N) chuckled slightly.

“Shawn was saying earlier that he wanted to do a shoot where he could wear something like that,” Nina said. (Y/N’s) eyes lit up as she smiled at me, “I could totally see you as some sort of Vampire. But a proper one you know, not like something from The Vampire Diaries.” “I like the Vampire Diaries,” I said quickly, not thinking before I spoke. “Oh so do I,” (Y/N) said as she tapped the end of her pen against the paper. “The guys look really hot as vampires, but I can see you with a more gore-like look.”  She awkwardly pretended to brush hair behind her ear when I didn’t reply.

I was back on set again, almost finished with the final look. Check Yes Juliet by We the Kings was playing and I couldn’t help but get distracted by (Y/N). She was cleaning up Nina’s area by the mirror as she danced along to the song. The photographer didn’t mind, wanting shots of me looking away from the camera. She grabbed two brushes and used the ends of them to bang against the edge of the desk, along with the beat. She then did a twirl as she moved round the back of the chair and placed them in the bag. She raised her hands in the air and tipped her head back as it reached the end of the bridge, before starting up again as if oxygen had suddenly been put back in her.

She moved frantically as if she was in her kitchen by herself. No one else seemed to notice but I couldn’t help my eyes feeling drawn towards her. I lowered my head to let out a chuckle and “flash”. We took a few more photos and then it was over. I wandered over to the laptop and looked at the photos with the photographer as he mentioned the ones he really liked. “This one, I really love” he said. It was one of me laughing to myself, looking at the ground. “I don’t know what you were thinking of in that moment, but it worked,” the photographer said. I looked at the photo for a few more seconds, before glancing over at (Y/N) who was writing things down in her notebook.

I was back in the makeup chair with Nina removing all the makeup she had caked onto my face. I looked through my phone, finding her photo again on instagram. I clicked on the likes and found (Y/N’s) name. I scrolled through her feed before following her. Within seconds she hurried over with two coffees in her hand. She placed them in front of me before sitting back on her stool. She spoke to Nina about something as I continued to look through her instragram. I found a photo of her from halloween where she was dressed as a vampire. The caption read: ‘be afraid because I probably will bite #makeupbyme’ . I commented on the photo saying, 'so, can you make me look this good as a vampire?’

I watched secretly as she pulled out her phone and read the notification. I felt a fuzzy feeling in my stomach as I watched the smile appear on her face. I was surprised by my screen lighting up seconds later. I read the reply, ’@shawnmendes that depends… do you bite?’ My head shot up from my screen to find her looking at me. We both broke out in smiles as Nina rambled on about something. Suddenly (Y/N) stood up and left as Nina asked her to do something. Nina grabbed a coffee and was about to take a sip, “Oh, this one must be yours.” She handed it to me before taking the other one, “Why’d you say that?” She took the top half of the cup and turned it in my hand to reveal a mobile number on the other side. “I already have (Y/N’s) number,” she said raising an eyebrow before having some coffee.

Rising Above Theory: Lie Ren’s Semblance

Since the last episode, I’ve seen a number of posts theorizing what Lie Ren’s Semblance is, but I haven’t seen one that quite captures what I’ve been thinking. In the episode, we see a very clear moment of little Lie in full-fledged panic. He sees little Nora, and he sees the Grimm, and his fear results in his incapacity to recognize how he can change the outcome of his immediate reality.

He then fades to an odd sepia color, and we’re given the visual cue that indicates his Aura/Semblance being activated. You can see that cue being used really effectively throughout Vol 4, from when Tyrian is attacking Ruby to when Sweet Boy Sun expends his Aura while using his clone Semblance. So, we know that Lie Ren is definitely doing something Semblance-y when he glows pink.

Ren is also capable of bringing others under his protection, letting them…calm down, go undetected, or something along those lines. So, what is the nature of his Semblance, exactly?

It is at this point that I’d like to talk about the shot of the lotus.

This shot is deliberately inserted into the earlier scene of Ren under the bridge, and I think that Miles and Kerry are trying to convey something significant to us through the symbol of the lotus. While the lotus can symbolize many things, a certain saying resonated with me-


“I love the lotus because while growing from mud, it is unstained.“
- Zhao Dunyi, Confucian scholar


In this scene, Ren is something like that lotus- he’s awash in fear and misery, but he rises above; he rises above the smothering darkness, and he acts purely and effectively. He is unstained by evil, he retains his humanity, and he goes to protect Nora.

It seems like his Semblance is a sort of Transcendence, the ability to rise above one’s immediate physical conditions. At first glance, Transcendence appears to be more or less interchangeable with some sort of Emotional Stability Semblance, since both let him reach a point past emotion, or a point of tranquility. But, I think the critical question, the one that hasn’t been looked too closely at, is how he achieves that Stability/Tranquility/Transcendence. I think that it is more complicated than his Semblance just making Stability/Transcendence happen, and that his Semblance is much more than just an emotional centering/reset process.

To begin with, let’s look at what happens to Ren and Nora again-

They fade to sepia. They lose their individual colors and fade into the scene together. Now, this might seem inconsequential, but I believe that the loss of each of their individual colors carries major significance. Why? Because, as we know, color isn’t just color in RWBY- color signifies individuality and self-expression, and those two values are so central to modern Remnant that children are typically named with color in mind.

The fact that Ren and Nora fade to sepia implies more than just some sort of stealth visual cue- it is implying that Ren and Nora are briefly losing their individuality. They’re literally fading into the background; they’re transcending their individuality and becoming one with the world.

There’s even evidence for Ren’s Semblance being Transcendence back from Vol 1. Remember this?

While it might seem like Ren’s ability to sense Grimm might just be a function of his Aura, we’ve seen that his danger sense is far more developed than just a feeling of being watched.

Ren has a very slight capacity for precognition, but, as Ozpin has implied, magic does not exist in the world outside of Maidens (and ostensibly Silver-eyed Warriors and Artifact-wielders). Therefore, if Ren’s ability is beyond what an Aura should be capable of, if Ren is not a Maiden, if Ren does not have Silver Eyes, and if Ren is not wielding an Artifact, then his ability to sense the future is almost certainly a function of his Semblance.

For Ren to be able to close his eyes, focus, and sense that a deranged scorpion thespian is sprinting at RNJR with all the speed of a storm, Ren has to be tapping into something greater than himself. He is using his Semblance to tap into the awareness of the world at large, leaving behind the limitations of his physical body as his senses meld with the world’s. This is what allows him to sense a danger that is still approaching the group.  

Ultimately, Ren’s Semblance is Transcendence: it enables him to rise above and out of his own physical body to re-center his emotions, it enables him to merge with the world and fade away into it so as to conceal himself, it extends his sensory powers by extending his awareness through the world’s, and it enables him to bring others into that state of transcendence of the self.

Cheryl was a different person to everyone with a strange personality that but if anything she was eve more bitchy after her brother’s death. You weren’t sure how you had become friends with the redheaded girl but it developed even further when she started to depend on you for support. The summer before junior year was a very odd year but with Cheryl putting her brother’s death behind her she needed something different.

During sophomore year so many things changed drastically from Betty no longer staring at Archie was unrequited love. She spent a lot of her time with Jughead for the paper and when he rejoined hanging out with Archie. Near the end of the year Cheryl began to hang out with the group to be more with you.

Everyone was in your house for a small get together to get ready for the upcoming summer following the coming finals week. It was the typical get together that included games and alcohol because what party doesn’t have that? The couples all sat together  with Betty and Jughead inconspicuously holding hands as if nobody knew they had been dating since early sophomore year. Archie was sitting by himself because whatever he had had with Valerie had ended almost as soon as it had started. Kevin and Veronica were sitting next to each other while Cheryl was glued to you.

“Let’s have some fun a little truth or dare never hurt anyone before.” You smirked as everyone straightened up.

I was doing a Google Images search a month ago for, I dunno what, and out of nowhere came this screencap where Jim Backus and this woman were dressed as Vikings. I didn’t click on the “go to page” button to find out more, and Google Images now doesn’t know what this is (it offers “costumes”).

But through the magic of regular Google and the Internet Movie Database, I found out this is from the “The Vikings Have Landed” episode of The Ghost Busters (1975)… which I own the DVD set of but haven’t watched, ack! Backus played Eric The Red and Lisa Todd played Brunhilda.

I found this video on my phone!!!! it was Rose’s VERY first night home, right after the cab from the hospital took us home.

Look at her flying saucer. I’m so relieved she doesn’t need that anymore.  I remember she was so happy in the cab, clicking her beak in the carrier and when she got home it’s like she knew she was home.

I know there’s a time where newly adopted birds need time to get used to their surroundings, but I never went through that with Rose.  She seems to accept things as they are no matter what! She’s the best and I love her and I love all of you guys that love her too. ⋋(‘Θ’◍)⋌ :.。✯*

anonymous asked:

You treat every character so fairly and develop them so perfectly and it's truly fantastic. I want to mention your depiction of Sasori in your 'criminals do it better' series; I'm asexual and I've never really found a character in fanfiction where asexuality isn't the focus of the story and included some traumatic past, but you did it perfectly and fitted it in seamlessly as just an attribute of Sasori as a person and I love you for it

💕 💕 💕

Tbh I’ve gone through so much crap regarding my own sexuality that I’m…less fond of fics that focus entirely on a character’s sexuality as the point of the story? They’re just never the first thing I click on, and it’s one of the big reasons I don’t really write homophobia or sexuality discoveries. I try to just treat is as a part of a person, because I’m so relieved my own finally feels that way, if that makes sense. I’m glad you don’t mind that way of writing! ^-^

  • and you saw him smiling at this teen you saw about every time they went to the store. *cough*  Soulmate!S.Coups *cough*
  • but moving on you were going on with your own business just getting what you needed
  • you passed this tall guy getting flour from the highest shelf you could never reach so you asked him to get you one too
  • which he did and you were all like “I’ve never seen you guys here before where did you come from?”
  • apparently they were all visiting one of the boys’ hometown and yeah the rest is history
  • you had a nice little chat with the guy that was apparently called Mingyu

  • you shortly introduced yourself and suddenly you couldn’t move
  • you had been wrapped by Jun’s arms
  • he was like swaying you a bit from side to side like a little kid who was hugging his teddy bear
  • “I’m sorry I’m just so excited I’ve finally found my soulmate!” he genuinely seemed overwhelmed with emotions
  • seeing him so happy made you even more glad to have found your soulmate
  • “Wait send me that selfie where I’m also in! I need to have our first picture together i mean we basically met through those”
  • and so that specific selfie of Jun became your wallpaper also
  • you clicked so easily with each other it was ridiculous

Here is a comic about a man I admire very much! Karl Heinrich Ulrichs was an early champion of LGBT rights, and maybe the first person to speak publicly for them as he did in Munich in 1867. The last picture there is the place where he spoke. He used the word “Urning” for gay men, a term he coined, because even the word “homosexual” wasn’t invented yet (it would be soon after). I only found out about him last fall, which is surprising and also sadly not surprising. But he was really amazing, I’m sure you will agree.

Hark! A Vagrant is a strange mix, sometimes the comics are straight jokes and sometimes, like here, I just want to talk about someone I think is great in a way that’s easy to pick up on - comics are great for that! And I tell you what, I got so much out of this particular collection, of all the things I read. Here is a link:

Karl Heinrich Ulrichs:
Urning Pride and the First Known Gay Activist

Translated and Edited by Michael Lombardi-Nash, PhD


The document is a mix of things, essays and Karl’s own writings and I think you will like it very much. I’m going to leave you with the epitaph on the stone his friends put up for him, he had many friends and admirers. It reads like a little affectionate biography.


Karl Henrich Ulrichs
who was born in Westerfeld near East Friesland
He distinguished himself and became renowned among
his equals by his mental faculties in the humanities and other disciplines
through instruction he received in Gottingen and Berlin.
He was concerned about new problems in anthropology and jurisprudence.
He had a remarkable sense of duty.
He was not elevated to prosperity nor was he humbled
by the attacks from his adversaries.
As a pauper he left the region of Hanover and went into exile.
He traveled through a great part of Europe.
He displayed everywhere a model character by his knowledge and virtue.
Finally he came to live in Aquila in central Italy to live for a long time.
He edited a Latin journal titled “Alaudae” [Larks]
which received praise from the old and new world.
Not complaining, not anguished, he died in our city in his 70th year
on the day before the Ides of July 1895
His loyal friends and admirers here and across the Alps
joined in to pay for this gift for their best friend whom
they mourn the loss of, and mock his lack of fortune
by this truly excellent monument.


“New problems in anthropology and jurisprudence.” Victorians, amirite? Never stop … Victorianing things.  But still, I mean, who doesn’t want their friends to mock their lack of fortune with truly excellent monuments?

Friends of Friends (Jooheon) Part 1

Part: 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7

Title: Friends of Friends

Featuring: Jooheon (monsta x) and you

POV: First person

Rating: PG-13 (for now)

Summary: While visiting your best friend Wonho, you find yourself increasingly curious about one member of Monsta X in particular.

Requested by @heon94! I got a little carried away with this one and decided to break it up into multiple parts :)


I stood nervously in front of the door to their apartment, psyching myself up before I knocked. I always felt awkward meeting new people, no matter who it was. The fact that it was Wonho’s good friends and members was increasing my anxiety tenfold.

In short he is perfect wank material.

How I Make Animated Gifs (Photoshop CS5)

So! I went from no one asking to suddenly having quite a few people asking about how I animated this stuff so I’m putting together a little tutorial now.

(Disclaimer, I am not an actual animator, and my knowledge on this is all trial-and-error but works for me.)

First, you open up Photoshop. Click the icon, blah blah, wait 100000 years for it to load (it takes mine like 5 minutes :’))

Then you’re going to go to “Window” and scroll down to “Animation.”

Something like this should pop up:

It’ll be empty until you open up a file and add a layer. There are a few ways you can go about this - you can either animate via animation timeline or animation frames, but I personally prefer frames. So, once you add a layer, you’ll probably see something like this:

The “click here” is where you want to click if you want to animate by frames. You can toggle between frames and timeline through this. Now, just for the sake of showing what it’ll look like when there’s actually something kinda-animated, I’m going to open up a small animation I did for this.

(Yeah that’s a lot of layers, and each one is individually drawn for the hair hahahaha) Below, on the animation bar, that’s all the individual frames. And if you look closer - 

- you’ll see that I have it set to 0.05 sec per frame. I’ve just found that for actual animation, this is the smoothest (while still manageable) rate to animate sequences, so 0.05-0.08 is generally the range I go with. (I am not an actual animator, I just do what I do.)

For small sort-of animations like this,

each individual motion is anywhere from 0.2 seconds to 0.8 seconds, with varying animation frames in-between to give a staggered effect.

This is what the animation frames look like. Each frame is 0.2 seconds, but I had the motions staggered across the frames. (0.5 and 1 are my usual go-to rates for simple, small-motion animations though.)

Also note that, on the bottom left, I have the loop set to “Forever.” There are the options “once,” “three times,” “forever,” and “other,” but for continuously looping gifs you’ll want “forever.” 

So! What do you do with your completed animation? You go to “File,” and scroll down to “Save for Web & Devices.”

I’ve gone back to the Kushina hair animation thing for this. Now, after you click on “Save for Web & Devices,” something like this should pop-up with an overview.

Review what it is that you want - I generally go with the presets, and pay attention to the bottom right-hand side. Image size, I generally keep within 800^2 px to 1500^2px to keep the files small. (That’s not very small, but considering I draw on 3000px by 2500px+, it is to me)

Also, looping options! If you forget to switch the looping options on the animation frame/timeline, you can do it here too. Once everything is checked over, just click “Save,” and you have your looping gif!

(Yeah no I only put this together quickly, I wasn’t gonna bother making it smoother than I made it. Too much work and not enough time.)

So there! Making looping gifs on photoshop. If you want an actual animation tutorial - how to make smooth walking motions, hair, etc. - you can probably find one on Youtube or something. Saving gifs from professional animation and analyzing the frame-by-frame motions helps too (as I mentioned above, my learning was crude). The actual process of animating is pretty damn time-consuming, but if you do small animations to add some flair to your art, it’s manageable.

Happy gif-making!

It was a stupid little thing. He’d been ready for this trip for weeks now, counting down the days till that little glorious glimmer of time he had to himself. Between the break in filming the latest season of ‘Starved’ and the soon to happen promotional period, was this sparse few weeks to himself. He doubted it was even going to be long enough, but he was so ready for it.

At least, he thought he was. Now he was in a small private room, waiting for his gate to be called to board, and he was shaking, staring out the window at the rising sun. There was too much that could go wrong.

All the what if’s that were running through his head. So many silly little worries. He almost reached for a cigar, but he’d promised Wilson he’d try to stop. But what if they didn’t click in person as they did over the phone, or over the web? What if Wilson decided he’d found someone who was better, and also nearby? What if he screwed up, again.

His hand clutched at his shirt, right above where a locket sat on his skin. William Carter fished out the small piece of jewelry, a copper heart with an acrylic red rose in the surface. “Charlie, mind keeping an eye on me? I don’t know if any of this is going to work out.” God, the words hurt to spit out. He was a brilliant actor, but this is what Wilson could reduce him to, an anxious mess. He took a steadying breath and smiled as the sun reflected off the metal. “Thanks, pal.” He said, tucking the locket back under his shirt where it belonged.

He reminded himself that Wilson was just as excited about this as he was. Last night had resulted in a rather flustered Wilson, bright red as they talked about the upcoming visit. His boyfriend had looked so happy, and it brought a small smile to his face. He was a little more sure that everything was going to work out well. Nothing could be perfect, but they’d spent so much time building their relationship, this was just the next step, and they’d work it out, they always did.

“Flight 473, please move to Gate 6 for boarding.”

He almost ran to the gate, but kept it to a brisk walk, ready to get the hardest part of this journey over with.

Surprisingly, he slept through most of the flight. The touchdown jarred him awake, and he groggily collected his bag from the carousel after disembarking the plane.

And then he was blinded by a flash. “Mr. Carter! Is it true that the next season will introduce a love interest for Maxwell?” Yelled someone from a few feet away. Oh god. One, nope. Two, he was really glad Wilson couldn’t drive. And that Wilson’s friend Willow was busy.

Ah yes, that was the reason he didn’t want Wilson to be at the airport. Paparazzi. The US was much worse then other countries when it came to them. Yelling invasive questions, questions about his work… it was rather endless.

He pushed through the crowd that was growing, pulling his phone out of his pocket to call for a taxi. He was lucky, they had one right near by, plate A4R-8D9. He sighed, flipping open his note app to see Wilson’s address again. He had it memorized, sure (how many packages had he sent to apartment 633 already? too many to count, honestly,) but he didn’t feel like saying it wrong, or even just spacing for a few seconds on it.

He just wanted to get there, damn it. 256 Park Drive, Reading. Apartment 633, Wilson P. Higgsbury.

With a gentle hand, he tapped on the window of the taxi, “You able to get to Reading?” He asked, his hand clenching the handle of his suitcase just a touch too hard.

“'Course sir, hop in. Where to, exactly?” The taxi driver clicked open the back doors and William sighed in relief, sliding in with his suitcase before answering. “256 Park Drive, please.”

“Visiting family?”

“My boyfriend, actually.” He smiled, but his leg kept shaking.

“Ah, you looked nervous. First time in person?”

“How’d you guess?”

“Intuition, and that’s how I looked when I met my significant other for the first time. You’re that William Carter fellow, right? How’d you meet this guy?”

“I’m not sure I’d care to share the story with you, if you don’t mind.”

“Ah, worried I’d sell it to some trashy paper, right? I understand. I promise I won’t, but it’s fine if you want it to be a mystery. Still, he must be a special guy. ”

William frowned, but nodded. “He is.”

“Well, I wish you luck then, bud.” The taxi driver looked back quickly, before focusing on the road again. The rest of the slow ride was silent. But eventually, they stopped at a slightly old apartment building, and he slid the driver a few twenties.“Thank you, for the ride.”

“No issue, sir, it’s my job. Again, good luck.” William Carter slid out of the car, his suitcase right behind, and closed the door. He turned around and could hear the taxi skidding away as he looked up at the building. He swallowed down any doubt and set forward, pushing the doors open with as much grace he could manage.

He’d been waiting months for this. Almost a year. And this was the final stretch. Quick feet led him to the elevator and he punched the six button a few times, his face going red. God, he was what, almost fifty, and here he was, as excited as a kid on Christmas.

He got out and almost ran down the hallway, looking for 633. Finally, he got to a rather beat up door, the numbers had most of their gold paint worn off. His hand was raised to knock, but he smiled and reached for his phone instead, quickly pulling up a specific number. He could hear a rather loud ringtone, a song he couldn’t place, through the door. He had to conceal a chuckle.

It took a few minutes, but the phone was finally picked up. “Hey! You finally landed?” Wilson sounded like he’d been up all night, but he sounded happy. That brought a smile back to his face.

“I’m outside.”

“What?” He heard feet moving away from his spot next to the door. “No, you’re not.”

“I’m outside your door.”

“What?!”

He knocked, and turned off the phone. The door was practically torn from the hinges, and he had very few seconds to think before being pulled down into a kiss, hands holding his face.

“I can’t believe you’re actually here.” Wilson murmured, his own face a bright pink.

And it was in that moment, William Carter knew that everything was going to be fantastic.

SO. I might have written something for your modern!AU. 

I hope you like it?


Look what this jelly bean wrote! I had something else in mind but now it pales in comparison ;w; Thank you for this, it made my day ^^
