college-roommates

Danny is meant to be a savior or something, as he rallies against un-kicked heads and big business alike. But his quest as the chosen one never feels like anything more than your college roommate’s two-week quest to try Tai Chi each morning, especially when he’s paired with Colleen Wing, the owner of a martial arts dojo with actual experience. He shows up in New York, shoeless with an “I traveled abroad this summer and it CHANGED MY LIFE” outfit, and immediately remarks about how he used to skateboard in a skyscraper. You’re so fucking cool, Danny. And did you immediately go to the one dojo in New York City and school the expert female owner in both martial arts techniques and “finding your inner strength”?

Of course you did, because if something exists, whether it’s morality lessons or punching, Danny Rand has got to be the best at it. He’s the ultimate wish fulfillment fantasy for everyone who’s ever talked for an hour to a stranger about finding their zen and then gotten angry when that stranger refused to sign up for Tae Kwon Do lessons. He’s lacks any character traits, but if you have a character trait, Danny Rand could still probably one-up you on it. He’s the guy who tries to fuck a girl after her massage session and claims that it was all about “healing.”

Hello! I want to say, I LOVE your AUs! I was wondering if you could do a religious/punk college roommates? like the other one smokes, drinks etc. and the other doesn't like it, prays every night?

  • “Dear Heavenly Father, I know you say that we should love everybody equally, but could I make an exception for my roommate who plays 2009 emo bands at 1am?” “I can hear you! You’re not praying silently!” AU
  • For all of their life, Character A has been home schooled so that their parent(s) could make sure that Character A was getting a good, religion approved education. Now attending the college of their dreams, Character A is sure that everything is going the way that their god wants…except for Character B, their punk aesthetic roommate who is constantly doing everything that goes against Character A’s religion.
  • “Here, put in one of my earbuds and listen to this cool new band that I found. I’ve listened to your music and I think you need some more screamo in your playlists.” AU
  • Character A hasn’t ever really felt close to any faith or religion, but after rooming with Character B, a devout worshiper, Character A is slightly intrigued about what Character B’s religion is all about.
  • Growing up in an extremely religious household, Character A has always dreamed that college is going to be the time of their life when they’re going to get to let loose a bit. Character B is their punk, experienced roommate, and they’re happy to show Character A the ropes on how to drink, swear, and smoke like a pro.
  • “You’ve never had a cigarette? Me neither. Just because I’m punk doesn’t mean that I want lung cancer. I will support you though if you want to learn how to smoke while I keep an eye out for our RA.” AU
  • Character A is very religious. Growing up, Character A learned the art of the occult, and is now happily practicing their religion in college as well. Character B is a diehard black metal band fan and thinks that Character A is amazing – if a bit scary at times.
psa for college freshman

hey, whats up, hello! so you’re gonna be a freshman and you’re probably moving in real soon, and you might be excited but also nervous, not to worry i got you! here are some tips and tricks and general advice based on my own experience. 

okay so step by step:

MOVE IN

okay so this is easily the most stressful thing about the first week of school. you gotta get all of your stuff into a tiny dorm if it’s a big room i am literally so jealous my dorm was like a prison so don’t freak out, stay cool and pack efficiently!

  • try not to overpack, it’s really easy to believe you’ll need everything you’re bringing but trust me you won’t even look at half of it
    • a good tip for this is, if you don’t use it at home, don’t bring it to school! (plus it’s really easy to just buy stuff you need on amazon so don’t forget that that’s an option too)
  • if you’re going to a school that deals in snow, DON’T bring that stuff (jackets/hats/boots/etc) with you when you move in. if you know you’re going to go home for a weekend before the snow sets in, definitely leave it at home and bring it with you later!
  • let your parents/guardians/friends/family help you move in. it might not seem like a big deal, but letting them help you will make them feel better. and if you don’t like how they arrange things, let it be! you have all semester to rearrange and settle in, they only have this one day, so just let them have it! also don’t forget to thank them when they leave!

ROOMMATES

ah yes, the wonderful concepts of roommates. i was lucky my freshman year, but some people aren’t

  • try and connect with them via facebook/school emails/phone, settling things like are you gonna share a mini fridge, microwave, coffeemaker and how you’re gonna decorate (if you’re into that) will help when you finally settle into your room
  • definitely go over ground rules once you’re all unpacked and settled in. my dorm had us go over a list of questions, come to an agreement, and sign it in case there were any future conflicts. cover things like: 
    • is it okay to have my friends sit at your desk or on your bed when you aren’t there?
    • how should we handle overnight guests?
    • do you want me to give you a heads up if i have friends coming over?
    • 100% agree to give each other a heads up on parents coming to your room
    • sharing food?
    • cleaning responsibilities
    • definitely definitely give each other a copy of your class schedule, and if you have classes at the same time maybe you can agree to make sure you’re both awake at the right time!
  • you don’t have to be bff’s with your roommate, sometimes it turns out that way and sometimes it doesn’t. what you do need to be is open and honest with your roommate. your year will be miserable (especially if you can’t switch roommates) if you don’t communicate with each other. don’t be afraid to tell them if something is bothering you. if you’re to nervous to do that or don’t like confrontation, talk to your RA or RD

so now that we got all that out of the way, here are some general tips about social things:

  • that whole keep your door open and people will come talk to you think is a load of bs. me and my roommate did that for weeks and no one came in. everyone is just waiting for someone else to take that chance. so go into peoples rooms and ask them if they wanna grab lunch/dinner! walk around and poke your head in their room! it might be awkward as hell but at least you’re trying :)
  • go to all (or as many) dorm activities as you can! this allows you to meet more people too even if the event is really dumb, at least show up. you always have the option to leave!
  • go to club meetings! even if you aren’t sure you want to stay in the club. it’s much harder or maybe just more awkward to join when you’re an upperclassmen, so try and get those roots down as soon as you can
  • that being said, you can always leave a group without any hard feelings. people do it all the time, so don’t be scared that once you go to one meeting you’re stuck in the group forever
  • don’t let anyone tell you that as a freshman you can’t get involved. if you want to, you can. there is absolutely nothing stopping you. you might have to work a bit harder but i know you can do it!
  • sometimes freshman year can suck, or at least have it’s moments. don’t give up. everything gets infinitely better as time goes one, i promise. if you’re having a tough time or feel isolated or overwhelmed, reach out to someone, a parent, friends from home, an old teacher, anyone really! don’t give up, things might get tough, but you ARE strong and you WILL get through it
the signs as college roommates
  • aries: jumps into bed and hurts a part of their body, promptly asks "did you see that?"
  • taurus: labels everything in the shared fridge as "mine," shares it anyway
  • gemini: accidentally slams door at 3 in the morning, apologizes loudly
  • cancer: is never home due to how many things they are involved in, is only home to eat ramen and binge watch netflix
  • leo: rearranges everything in the shower according to how much soap is left in the bottle
  • virgo: does homework due in a month, questions your work ethic
  • libra: orders a pizza with everything on it to make sure they didn't miss your favorite topping
  • scorpio: falls out of bed in hysterics and complains about all the cute people on campus
  • sagittarius: spends the time they should be studying watching old youtube memes
  • capricorn: is silent for hours, and suddenly screams "FUCK" about forgetting something that they were supposed to do two hours ago
  • aquarius: looks up from laptop on a sunday night and shakes their head silently before getting back to whatever it was they were doing
  • pisces: mutters under their breath while cleaning, the muttering is actually old taylor swift songs
Study Break, an Everlark College One Shot

I was given a dialogue prompt by @thesaltywinteradult that was:
“What are you doing in my bed?”
“Nap.”

Happy reading!


Katniss kicked off her shoes the second she walked in the door of her apartment and stumbled into her room. She’d worked all night on her final project for her lighting design class and she’d just finished her presentation. All she needed was a few hours of sleep so she could make it to her tests the rest of the week.

But when she slipped under the blanket, she found her bed was already occupied. Her blurry vision noted blonde hair. Peeta, her roommate.

She poked him. “What are you doing in my bed?”

“Nap.” He murmured.

“In my bed?” Katniss asked, too tired to do much more than ask.

Peeta slowly turned his head. “I spilled paint on mine.”

“Then why not sleep on the couch?” She moved closer anyway.

“Springs.” He draped an arm over her waist. “I have an alarm set. I’ll be up in a bit.”

Katniss closed her eyes. Good thing she was too tired to question any further. She was extremely comfortable wrapped up in Peeta’s embrace.

I’m here for girls working their way through college. A full class load, 3 jobs, and babysitting on the side. The girls who keep their dinner of granola bars stockpiled in their purse for in between shifts. The ones who haven’t had a day off in months. The ones who come home from one job to find their roommate drunk on the couch because her parents pay her rent, then change their outfit and go to job number two. I’m here for girls studying at 2am because that’s all the time they had, snacking on dry cereal and keeping themselves awake with their favorite spotify playlist. The ones who started their own business to pay the bills. The ones who watched their less experienced male counter parts move up to higher paid positions months before it was their turn. I’m here for girls figuring this out on their own, whether they come from a supportive family or not. I see you. I’m here for you. 

Living With a Roommate

One of the most nerve wracking parts of going off to college is the fact that you must live with a roommate. Here are some tips and advice about living with a roommate, whether they be a stranger or someone you know already!


1. Decide if you want to choose or go random

Most colleges give you the option to list someone to live with or to have the college decide for you. People like choosing their roommate because they are afraid of exactly who they will get and so they will often talk to other incoming freshman. Most colleges will have a facebook page for your class and people will talk on there, describing their lifestyle (clean or messy, etc) and see if they want to live together. If you decide random, your college will have a list of questions for you to answer and they will match you with someone compatible. 


2. Adjusting to Roommate Life

Understand that a dorm room is small for two people, and so talk to your roommate about your preferences or concerns. If you don’t discuss things you may have a problem with, your roommate will never realize why you get so angry when they’re studying with the light on at 3am. Communication is key and will keep everyone happy. Try to be understanding and don’t give your roommate a hard time about something they can’t change. 


3. Do your part

Just like you expect respect from your roommate, they expect it from you. If they told you it bothers them when you leave your socks on the floor, pick them up. Often we only focus on what’s bothering us and not what might be bothering others. If you want to write an essay but your roommate wants to sleep, go do it in the study lounge. Things that may seem little can make a huge difference.


4. You’re going to fight

You are going to fight with your roommate. You are living with someone for (usually) a full year. It’s expected and it’s healthy. However, don’t be passive aggressive. When you’re both angry, ask to talk about it immediately. Once you talk it through you have a better understanding and you actually feel welcome in your room once again.


5. You don’t have to be best friends

Every buzzfeed article I see about roommates talks about being bffs. You don’t have to best friends to live with someone!!! Most likely you’ll become friends with your roommate, but you do not have to go everywhere with them or hang out with them all the time. Sometimes it’s nice to get away from them a little bit just because you see them all the time. 


6. You might get a bad roommate

People always hear roommate horror stories and are scared to death by the fact that they might be one of those people. As someone who survived a terrible roommate, do not worry!! First, if you can tell you and your roommate will not live well together, the college will give you a month or two to switch rooms. If something happens later than that, you’ll be able to move out at the end of the semester. Make sure to talk to your RA about any concerns you have- that’s what they are there for! If you’re really worried about a bad roommate, just remember that you’ll be in class/working/with friends most of the day and that your room is just for sleeping. (I could never study in my room anyway, it’s too distracting.)


7. It’s not as scary as you think it is

Thanks to technology, you’re going to “know” your roommate before you move in and this will make it way less awkward. Even if you chose a random roommate the college will inform you who they are and you can talk to them on facebook, text, snapchat, etc! Once you move in together you’ll have time to talk as you’re arranging your room and often helps ease the tension. It’s both exciting and nerve wracking but I promise you’ll be fine!


8. You can be friends and not live together

Sometimes living together can put a strain on the friendship that had formed between you and your roommate. It’s ok to not live with them next year! Your friendship may grow stronger without the pressures of trying to adjust to each others lifestyles. Don’t be afraid to talk to your roommate if you don’t want to live with them another year. This isn’t a bad thing or the end of a friendship!!!


That’s all the tips I have! These are just based on me and a few others experiences and may not apply to you! You may get a roommate who becomes your best friend for life, but I’m just discussing the average college experience. Have any more tips you want to give or have questions? Send us an ask!

Relationships: Keith/Lance (Voltron)

Summary: Things Lance was hoping for in his new roommate: totally cool. Preferably a lady, but Lance has never been one to limit himself to just one gender. Liked lame jokes, liked eating spoonful’s of peanut butter, made bad puns. Firmly believed ABBA was God’s gift to man kind. Preferably fell madly in love with Lance’s brilliant sense of humour and awkwardly endearing good looks.

Things Lance was expecting in his new roommate: probably a little lame, but in a good way. Like in a Hunk way. Normal sense of humour, but hopefully didn’t hate puns the way Hunk and Pidge did. Probably liked Dancing Queen and not much else.

Things Lance was not even remotely prepared for in his new roommate: Keith fucking Kogane.

Notes: This was incredible to read. I’m so impressed with the characterisations, and with the perfect rate at which their relationship developed. The writing was amazing. ABBA junkie Lance was… a gift, honestly. (!!) Just read this one!!!! Please!!

The Old College Try: Part 2 (Lin/Reader college roommate!AU)

Summary: You spent the summer before your freshman year of college thinking your roommate was going to be a girl named Lin. When you get to campus, that’s not what you find.

Part Two: In which there are crayon contracts and costume parties, but definitely no jealousy.

Note: Sorry this took me so long to get out! Now that the story is completely outline, it should flow a lot faster. I’m pretty sure this is Part 2 out of 4.

Way Too Easy

Written for the prompt: Will you pretend to be my date to my family’s holiday party so they’ll stop harassing me about being single? There’s food in it for you.

Dean agrees to accompany Castiel to the Novak family party as his boyfriend, but finds himself regretting it when he starts to forget that they’re not actually dating. (1.9k)

[AO3]

Dean knew from the way Castiel stomped into their apartment and threw his backpack forcefully on the armchair that he was in a bad mood. His roommate was generally a happy person, but when he got angry it was not a pretty sight. Luckily, Dean and Cas had been roommates for three years now, and Dean had gotten very good at reading his emotions and calming him down when he was angry.

“What’s wrong, Cas?” Dean asked, looking up from his book.

“Nothing,” Cas muttered, tearing his jacket off and throwing it down on top of his backpack.

“Come on Cas; we both know that’s a lie. What happened? Is this about your psychology test?”

“No, Dean, it’s not, it’s–” He broke off then exclaimed, “Why the hell do they care if I’m dating anyone anyway? It’s none of their business and it’s not my fault if I’m not.”

“Whoa, slow down, Cas,” Dean said, brain working to catch up to what Castiel was saying. “Who cares who you’re dating?”

Cas sighed. “My family. I just talked to my parents, and they asked if I would be bringing anyone to our family Christmas party this weekend, as a date, and when I said no, my mom sighed in pity and my dad reminded me that I’m not getting any younger. I’m twenty-one!” Castiel was practically shouting now. “And every time I see Gabriel, he teases me about it, asking if I’m dating anyone or ‘getting any,’ as he says, and I know it’s not meant to be malicious, but it still hurts.”

Cas finally stopped to catch his breath and when he gazed at Dean with his large blue eyes, Dean felt his heart twist.

I would love to go to that party with you as your actual boyfriend, Dean thought, but he couldn’t say that, no matter how much he wanted to. The last thing he wanted to do was complicate or ruin their friendship by misreading the situation.

For a second, Dean thought that Cas must be a mind reader, because his face suddenly brightened and the next words out of his mouth were, “You could be my date!”
