continuing series


{ Steuarts Tea’s Lemon & Looking For Alaska }

I finally had the strength to continue this “tea series” haha! Kidding aside, to get back on track, I started it with the classic combination, tea and lemon! Sometimes you need to go back to the basic taste to balance everything. And hey, it tastes great and this is definitely my fave. And, Looking For Alaska is my favorite as well!

Dear mister, I was wondering if you could continue with your ldr series. The first 2 were super duper helpful. I'm currently in a relationship with the absolute perfect daddy for me, we've known each other for 5 months and have seen each other twice. But it's hard to evolve our new relationship in the inbetween times when we can't see each other as we both heavily rely on affection. I feel like we grow apart. So maybe you could talk about something along those lines. Thanks so much in advance!

The LDR series is on the burner yes… 

as of right now I actually have about 20 different drafts for topics, subjects and other things that I am consistently adding to for posts. Most of them I take a great deal of time to write them over the course of a week to even weeks and try my best not to just slop them up in haste.

LDR part 3 is somewhere in that mix. So, try to be patient… its on its way

Paw Patrol

Summary: When your 4 year old son is sick all he wants to do is watch Paw Patrol, so you watch it with him not expecting him to beg Thor to also join you guys.

Pairing: ThorXReader

A/N: Hope you guys like this. I have a list of things I’ll be writing about and will also be continuing my series. ENJOY!!!


Ryder was your 4 year old son, and the avengers absolutely adored him. They also understood that his father was not in the picture, so your work hours were pretty flexable at any time. So when he was up all night puking you knew you had to take the day off to be with him. You never liked leaving Ryder any way but you had to pay the bills. 
While you made Ryder some soup hoping that this would stay down, you heard his door open as he slowly walked out. “Hey buddy how are you feeling?” you ask looking down at him, he had your hair color and brown eyes, and to you he seemed perfect. 
“My tummy hurts mommy.” he whines while lying down on the couch, you look over at him as he sinks down into the couch. “Hey what do you want to do today? Mommy got the entire day off to spend with you.” you say walking over to him and sitting down blowing on the soup to cool it down.
“Pa Contol” Ryder yells excited, you smile. Paw Control was his favorite show mainly because the main character and him shared a name. 
“Okay. Let’s turn on some Paw Control.” you said seeming excited. 

Avenger’s Tower.

“Has anybody seen Lady Y/n today?” Thor asks, you hadn’t called or texted him, he was planning on training with you this morning but couldn’t find you anywhere.
“Um_ I think she called in, Ryder was sick.” Tony said not looking up, he was currently trying to fix one of his weird inventions. Thor frowned. You hadn’t said anything about Ryder feeling unwell. 
“I will be back.” Thor says leaving the tower.

~1 hour later
You and Ryder had been watching Paw Patrol for an hour and a half now, no matter what you did you couldn’t get him to do anything else. Soon there was a knock at your door, and when you opened it you were suprised to see Thor standing there with a cartin of icecream, some soup, juice boxes and of course a box of pop tarts. 
“Thor!” you say now realizing that you were in sweats and a tank top and your hair was done up in a very messy bun on the top of your head, and you hadn’t done your makeup, you wish you would have gotten dressed or even gotten in the shower. 
“Hello, I heard that Ryder was not feeling well. So I brought him some feel better gifts.” Thor says smiling widely, he had asked many people what to get Ryder, they had all been very helpful. “So what has Ryder been up to?” Thor asks walking into your apartment before you realized you hadn’t said for him to come in, you felt your cheeks heat up. “Oh yeah sorry, come in.” you say, you had been harboring a crush on Thor ever since you met him. He was always so nice, and understanding, and would always be there for you, and Ryder adored him which just made you like Thor even more. 
“Hello Ryder! I have brought you soup and pop tarts! What are you up to?” Thor asks looking at the TV
“I wating Pa Contol.” Ryder says excited. You went over to Thor and took the bag of stuff from him to put on your counter. 
“Why thank you Lady Y/n.” Thor says smiling, you nodded before you headed back towards the counter. “You wat pa contol wit me.” Ryder stumbles out, you quickly run back into the living room. “Ryder I don’t think that Thor_”
“I’d love to if it makes him happy.” Thor says sitting on the couch with Ryder, “But I”m afraid you’ll have to explain some things to me.” You smile as your son explains the show to Thor who seemed to be watching the show while stealing glances at you. You smiled at Thor and mouthed ‘Thank you’, he nodded and returned his attention to the screen.
You went and sat next to Ryder, and watched Thor who seemed to be wondering about many of the dogs. 
After you had spent the entire day watching Paw Control, Ryder finally fell asleep and Thor carried him to his bed, and you tucked him in. While the two of you went back to the living you, you decided to clean up a bit. 
“Thank you Thor. This means a lot to Ryder. Sorry that you got trapped into watching all of Paw Control though.” you say looking down. 
“No it was my pleasure anything to make Ryder happy.” Thor says smiling and picking up some of Ryder’s toys, you smile at him. 
“Lady Y/n I have a question to ask you.” you felt your heart start to race while he said that, you slowly turned to look at him. He seemed nervous. 
“Yeah Thor?” you ask trying to keep your own nervousness down.
“Well_ You have to know that I understand if you don’t want to, I mean you have the boy to think of. But I came here to see_ well I came here for Ryder because he ws unwell but. I mainly came here to see you.” Thor says and you turn your eyes opening wide as you look at the nervous god infront of you. Was he nervous because of you?
“Thor are you trying to ask me out?” you ask quickly, he looks up at you sheepishly than nods. You smile at him, than your smile disappears. “I would love to Thor, but I_ I can’t say yes unless this is something that is going to mean more than just one date… I have to think about Ryder and if he were to hear about me going on a date with you he would expect there to be more, and your already mean so much to him.” you say looking at the picture of Ryder on your coffeetable. 
“Than you want to get married?” Thor asks more confident than he was trying to ask you out.
“What! Oh no… I mean not no I just_ not right now! I mean we haven’t even gone on a date or anything.” you stiffle out, and Thor smiles. 
“Lady Y/n do not worry. My intentions are not to hurt you. Ever.” Thor says softly. You smile than look down. 
“Than yes I would love to go on a date with you Thor.” you say as Thor let’s out  a small cheer.

This is the part they didn’t show you in The Final Problem.

That rope was for Sherlock to climb down into the well to John. John had been struggling to keep his head clear of the water for a good while, and he was getting exhausted; hypothermia starting to set in. It was going to be another 10 minutes or so before the police arrived to unchain John and get all of them out of there, but that could seem an endless and fatal time for a fatigued man barely able to get a gasp of air. 

Sherlock was quite a bit taller than John, so he took it upon himself to clamber down into the well and take on John’s weight so his friend could rest. How overwhelmed with relief he must be to be able to finally save his best friend from that cursed well. At this moment, it’s just the two of them, nothing else and no one else mattered.

t h e  c h a r i t i e s  were three goddesses of grace, beauty, adornment, joy, mirth, festivity, dance, and song. they were attendants of the goddesses aphrodite and hera, conceived as the goddesses who gave festive joy and enhanced the enjoyments of life by refinement and gentleness. gracefulness and beauty in social intercourse are therefore attributed to them. they were sometimes depicted in classical art with crowns of myrtle.

Beautiful Speak Now Album Things:
  • Like every fuckin’ bridge on this album makes you want to cry
  • And all the lyrics are fucking awesome. It’s a lyric-driven album
  • “Every time I look at you, it’s like the first time”
  • “You made a rebel of a careless man’s careful daughter”
  • Opening “Mine” with “uh-oh” and closing it with the background vocals echoing “I can see it now” to show the emotional journey of the character as she believes in love again over the course of the song
  • The entirety of “Mine,” the best love story ever told
  • The fact that Taylor resurrected Sparks Fly from the dead and put it on her 3rd album because we asked her to
  • The fact that Taylor also rewrote Sparks Fly and took out the lyrics that made it more sexual and about performing in a bar
  • The fact that the original lyric (now displayed in The Taylor Swift Experience) was “brown eyes” and she made it “green eyes”
  • How she describes the love interest as “a full-on rainstorm” and later says “meet me in the pouring rain”
  • The juxtapositions of rain and fire and then darkness and light in Sparks Fly
  • How the entire song is just an apology without any excuses. It just’s “I messed up and you suffered for it and you didn’t deserve that” 
  • “you gave me all your love and all I gave you was goodbye” 
  • How the orchestra makes everything so fucking beautiful??
  • The use of seasons in the second verse to describe the rise and fall of the relationship
  • How she references the 2009 VMA incident (”how you held me in your arms that September night / the first time you ever saw me cry”)
  • Speak Now being about the Paramore relationship drama and how Taylor was actually at the wedding it’s about lol
  • Taylor singing up an octave in Speak Now to sound like a gentle little girl about to crash the shit out of wedding
  • “a gown shaped like a pastry” “fond gestures are exchanged” “a song that sounds like a death march” “she floats down the isle like a pageant queen” = so descriptive?? conveys the feelings?? Queen of conveying emotions through descriptions
  • “you need to hear me out and they said Speak Now” “Your time is running out and they said Speak Now” “I hear the preacher say, ‘Speak Now or forever hold your peace” “So glad you were around when they said Speak Now” = queen of altering her main chorus line
  • “I’m not the kind of girl who should be rudely barging in on a white veil occasion” –> What’s the kind of girl tho?? I never knew
  • The giggle in the bridge
  • How Dear John calls out emotional abuse by a much older man onto a 19 year old without any apologies or sympathizing with the man but also has pieces where the victim blames themselves and calls out a pattern of abuse of other women
  • But it ends with the victim retaining their self worth and escaping and it’s amazing
  • “the girl in the dress cried the whole way home” –> have you ever seen such a beautiful conveying of a young girl’s loss of emotional innocence 
  • How the secret message of Dear John is “loved you from the very first day” which is a line on a bonus track “Superman” which is about how the love interest seems like the best guy in the world and a real life Superman 
  • That fuckin’ banjo in Mean
  • How Mean began about a critic who said Taylor ruined her “entire career overnight” at the Grammys and then Taylor performing Mean at the Grammys and wining 2 Grammys for it
  • The use of a big city to display one’s level success (which is what actually happened when Taylor moved to NYC)
  • “A simple complication, miscommunications lead to fallout” 
  • Isn’t it weird how she says “and people would say they’re the lucky ones” then on the Speak Now Tour she wrote “The Lucky One” ?? weird
  • “So many things that I wish you knew / so many walls up I can’t break through” –> “So many things that you wish I knew / but the Story of Us might be ending soon”
  • That fuckin’ ramp up back into the chorus after the bridge in The Story of Us
  • How perfectly Never Grow Up conveys how scary can it feel to grow up
  • The bridge of Never Grow Up
  • How every song except Never Grow Up and Last Kiss use heavy production and background vocals and it makes those two songs that much more powerful in their simplicity 
  • “I just realized everything I have is someday gonna be gone” and how this line gets more powerful the more years that go by
  • How Never Grow Up starts as a song to a baby, watches that baby grow up, and ends with Taylor  looking back at her life and the passage of time and swearing to protect that baby from harm….you ever cry
  • Just take 5 minutes and listen to Enchanted again pls
  • “Wonderstruck” “Enchanted” “Passing notes in secrecy” “this is me praying” “the very first page, not where the story line ends” “your eyes whispered” “this night is sparkling” “blushing all the way home” “I’ll spend forever wondering if you knew” “this night is flawless” “dancing ‘round all alone” –> So much mystical and whimsical imagery that you feel like you could call in love with the next person you see
  • The guitars in Enchanted
  • The production of Enchanted
  • “Sophistication isn’t what you wear or who you know / or pushing people down to get you where you wanna go” 
  • “I always get the last word” “There is nothing I do better than revenge” “show me how much better you are” –> Taylor is v self-aware 
  • Also how “show me how much better you are” is a reference to that JoBro song “Much Better” lmao so much 2008/2009 Disney drama
  • How Taylor wrote Innocent about the VMA incident when she could’ve just told you-know-who to fuck off
  • How Innocent looks at the subject from the perspective of their childhood and how they had “monsters” and “demons” that made them do bad things later in life and how this doesn’t make them a bad person
  • Knowing that you-know-who was one of Taylor’s favorite artists growing up so Innocent is also Taylor reconciling with herself how someone she artistically looked up to for years hurt her 
  • The use of light: “time turns flames to embers” “your string of lights is still bright to me” “in your firefly catching days” 
  • How Innocent is Never Grow Up but applied to someone else through the lens of forgiveness
  • “I hope you’ll remember: today is never too late to be brand new”
  • The orchestra in Haunted and how it makes the song sound urgent and the situation dangerous
  • “holding my breath” “your eyes go cold” “something’s gone terribly wrong” “can’t turn back now” “a fragile line” “it’s getting dark and it’s all too quiet and I can’t trust anything now” “come on, come on, don’t leave me like this” “can’t breath whenever you’re gone” “you’re not gone, you can’t be gone” –> everything sounds dangerous and urgent!! Like she’s actually gonna die!! And it’s called Haunted!! You get haunted by dead people!! But she’s saying she’s haunted!! The Haunting is killing her!! Holy shit!!
  • Last Kiss
  • The secret message of Last Kiss: “Forever and Always” 
  • The breath in the bridge of Last Kiss
  • The use of time and the passage of time: “at 1:58″ “that July 9th” “you can plan for a change in weather and time” “your name forever the name on my lips” “I’ll watch your life in pictures” “I’ll feel you forget me” “I’ll keep up with our old friends” “I still remember” “L
  • “I’m not much for dancing, but for you I did” –> “I don’t wanna dance if I’m not dancing with you” (Holy Ground)
  • THE BRIDGE: “So I’ll watch your life in pictures like I used to watch you sleep / and I’ll feel you forget me like I used to feel you breathe / and I’ll keep up with our old friends just to ask them how you are / hope it’s nice where you are / I hope the sun shines and it’s a beautiful day / and something reminds you / you wish you had stayed /  you can plan for a change in the weather and time / but I never planned on you changing your mind”
  • How the secret message of Long Live is “For you”
  • How Taylor ends Speak Now with a song for her fans and her band that she wrote during the Fearless Tour
  • How Long Live because even more powerful and beautiful and even sadder the more the years go by and the more successful Taylor becomes and as original member of The Agency leave/are left go
  • How Taylor wrote “we will be remembered” when she was like 19 and was still on her second album and before she won AOTY for the first time and wasn’t even close to the prime of her career but she was proud of how far she had come already and how Long Live sounds like a song someone writes at the end of their career to reflect on their accomplishments 
  • How Taylor wrote “promise me this: that you’ll stand by me forever” and every band member she has ever had still speaks highly of her and defends her
  • “When they point to the pictures, please tell them my name” but now no one will have to because everyone knows who she is and will know who she is for a long time because of her accomplishments and effect on popular culture
  • “It was the end of a decade but the start of an age” Taylor literally had no idea how true this line would become 

i’ve always wondered what it would be like to live inside the self titled album. how does color seep into a world that’s so devoid of it? sometimes i feel like the only color in my whole world is the hurricane of color raging behind by eyes.

if i find a way to calm the storm, i can paint a world of black and white.

but a hurricane is so easy to drown in.
