Highway run

Into the midnight sun.

Wheels go ‘round and ‘round

You’re on my mind.

Another season. Months away from home, going weeks at a time without your touch. It was hard, but it was the life you’d both chosen.

Another con. Another weekend where he could be home with you, but you insisted he go. The fans kept him going, kept him coming back for more, but he longed to see you.

The phone calls weren’t enough. The texts, the quick little messages helped him get through the day, but at night, he would reach across the vacant bed, fingers closing around the empty place where you should be. On the darkest nights, those nights when it seemed too hard to be gone, he would call you, laying the phone on his pillow just to listen to your voice as he fell asleep. You’d tell him of your day, silly things the kids had done, anything really. He wanted to know everything he was missing, needed to know you were alright. It broke your heart to hear the sadness in his voice as he whispered to you, promising everything was OK, that he’d be home soon. The miles between you stung like so many needles in your heart, but you stayed strong, keeping up a smile so he wouldn’t hear how much you were hurting too. You soothed him with your voice since your arms couldn’t reach that far.

“I love you Y/N/N,” he’d sigh as his eyes finally drifted closed.

“Love you more.”

prom weekend escapades! (they only wanted 1 (one) weekend not saving the world!) (via @avalencias )  


That time they had to spend senior skip day saving the world. (The food in [wherever] they landed was pretty good, though. Almost made up for it.) (via @chiltongirlsdoitbetter )

When the limo pulls up into her driveway and her four fellow Rangers spill out, Kim has to admit that Jason had been right: going all out with the tailored formal wear had been a good call. And when the four of them ring the bell to her house and each present her with a small corsage (with either black, blue, red, or yellow flowers, of course) and she pins a pink boutonniere onto each of their lapels, she has to admit that Billy had been right as well: there wasn’t anything at all weird about going to Senior Prom as a fivesome.

-shawn’s pov-
present day

Pain is exhausting.

Pain is all-consuming.

Pain has the ability to pick you up and submerge you in it’s rough, frigid waters and drown you.

Pain was lingering on the wet case of my pillow. Pain was lingering in the dirty clothes on my floor. Pain was lingering in my greasy hair, my chapped lips, my puffy eyes.

And then all at once, I was numb.

You want to know why?

I lost the one thing that causes pain.


Pain makes you feel everything. Pain makes you cry and scream and pull at your hair, but only because hope fuels it on. Pain thrives off hope. And as soon as you lose hope, you lose pain. As soon as you lose pain, you go numb.

I still haven’t decided which feeling is worse.

Love Triumphs Part 13: Friday Morning

Jared Padalecki x Reader

1250 Words

Story Summary:  AU (I love Gen, and love her with Jared.) Jared and Gen have split up, but are still friendly. You, the Reader have recently started acting on Supernatural, and have fallen in love with Jared. Both of you get hate due to the fact that you are much younger than he is.

Catch Up Here: Masterpost

“But we don’t want to leave Y/N.” Tom pouted as Gen stood in the hallway. “She was super nice. She played with us, we watched a movie, and Dad even ordered pizza. Can’t we stay one more day?” He begged.

Glancing at Gen, you waited to see how she would take it. They were her boys, her blood, and you were only the new girlfriend. “Well, maybe we could stay a little bit longer. That is, if Y/N doesn’t mind?” She asked, looking at you.

Even though you still had to pack for the convention you were leaving for tonight, you couldn’t say no to her. How would that look? Refusing to spend time with his ex and children. “Sure. I was just going to make myself some tea, would you like some?”

Hi!!!! Ok. So like. I found this blog at like 10am this morning and it is now 10pm and I'm like 72 pages into your blog and I don't know what I'm doing. But I am seeing all these posts about Marion and Alex and are you writing something for them? Like a book or a 10,000 page fic or etc? Because I love them. And you. I love you and think you're really rad. And your hilarious fairy/doppleganger stories. Anywho, I'm rambling but I just wanted you to know that I like you and that you are cool.

I love you too nonny!  This is a very sweet message.

“Marion And Alex ruin Seattle” was the ‘working title’ for a novel I’ve been working on about cryptids in modern america.  

The story specifically is about a vampire form the 1890′s and his Human Tax Shelter/Boyfriend, and them navigating things like romance with someone who’s exclusively nocturnal when you’ve always been a morning person, American Imperialism, making a commute work when you have to be invited in places, what is means to be “freakish” or “monstrous”, finding a good diner at 4AM for date night, and what to do when there’s a unicorn in the back garden eating your tomatoes, the little shit.

The Kickstarter should be launching this week with art, samples and a world-building PDF.

  • INKED: "When did you get your first tattoo?"
  • JERRY CANTRELL: "It’s been a while, but I wanna say in ’88. My mother had passed away right before I met Layne, and she’d left me a little bit of money to live on. We used that on gear and a couple of demo sessions that we did early on. I had a little bit of spending cash left over so Layne and I were talking about getting the brother tattoos. We went down to this place on Pike Street in Seattle, right above the market on the hill, and I got this screaming skull-type thing on my right shoulder, and he got a skull with an Elvis hairdo and some sunglasses on his left shoulder. They were both wall tattoos, my only wall tattoo—and, generally, the first one usually is. [Laughs.] But the cool thing about doing it was doing it with Layne; he had one on one shoulder and I had one on the other. They were kind of connected and obviously we were too."

i fear ben shepherd

“I’ve heard some GREAT stories about Ben. Just that he’s kinda psycho sometimes. Like he feels like killing people at certain times and… just cool things.” - Dee Plakas, L7 [x]

“If I was a 15 year old kid and I lived in Seattle and knew where Ben Shepherd lived, I wouldn’t fucking knock on his door, I’d be afraid. If I didn’t know him, he seems like someone who would put a shotgun in my mouth if I was a stranger.”  - Chris Cornell [x]

I think we all do

anonymous asked:

I live in El Paso, Texas and it's probably the worst city in the whole of the US. I've grown up here and it's terribly hot in the summer and there's absolutely nothing to do, even though we've got a population of 700k and are the largest border region in the US. It seems like people here have no drive to do anything and just do the same things over and over again. I'll be going to university in Seattle and I've never been more excited because I'll be in a place with ambition and cool weather.

!!! seattle is so pretti i’m glad for u bby

My excitement is steadily building.

As daunting as this may feel at the moment, when I step foot on US soil it will be brilliant.

An adventure is about to begin.

Isn’t this picture really bloody cool too? (I don’t own it nor do I claim to, if you know whose responsible for this brilliant thing please, please let me know).

anonymous asked:

do you have any tips on where to go when you wish to look physically trans?

I am not sure what this question is asking, but I think you’re asking how to pass more?  (If I totally read this wrong let me know!) 

Ummm… I am probably not the best person to ask because “passing” is such a subjective thing. Like I might pass for one person but not another person. I usually just striving for what feels comfortable/right?? 

I mean a lot of my “masculinization” happened before I realized I was trans? 

It was a lot of;

 “I like having short hair. Its easier to take care of and I don’t have to spend 3 hours combing and styling every time I wash it! This is the best!!”

“I hate shaving my legs, so, I am just not going to do it anymore!”

“Wow. Its cool enough in Seattle to wear button-downs all the time! This would look good on Eli (then I end up wearing the shirt more than him). Mens clothes fit so much better than womens clothes!* And they are cheaper!!  Thanks goodwill!” 

 *To be fair I am 6′0″ with like 36 inch inseam and I wore dresses and skirts because I couldn’t find pants long enough that didn’t cost an arm and an leg. 

“ Ugh I hate being called wife, ma’am, etc. I will just cringe and bear it.” 

So the denial was strong with me.  If I could shake my past self, I would. But overall, I was just seeking out what would make me a happier/more comfortable person.  

 After I came out, I did do a lot research about how to pass, but, a lot of the articles were hyper masculine/binary focused.  I don’t care about being hyper masculine?? I literally look like old tenure English professor from the waist up and emo skater dude from the waist down.  So, I kind of felt really uncomfortable with how articles made me feel like if I wasn’t subscribing to this type of masculinity then I wasn’t “man enough”.  There is definitely more than one way to be a man.  My favorite article about passing is “Effeminate FtM Passing Tips” by “Not Aiden”.  

It has this really great quote at the end,

The incongruence is what tends to get us read as women, not necessarily the mannerisms or even appearance.  Luckily, most of us are pretty consistent when allowed to dress and behave how we want.

I did a lot of experimenting to figure out what works for me. Like weirdly enough the whole tucking in button downs and shaving off my peach fuzz works, as much as my love of florals and make up works for me too. 

So the best advice I can give is to figure out what is going to make you the happiest (and safest!) person in your gender expression and just be unrelentingly yourself.  

I hope this helps! Thank you for the ask!

Science-Inspired Girls Clothing

Okay, so basically these two moms found that they couldn’t find train themed or dinosaur themed clothes for their daughters (who wanted them). So instead of giving up they made their own. They now want to spread this to other little girls everywhere who will get a change to be who they want to be and dress how they want to dress.

Their kickstarter is here:

(Here is a sample from their page)

They’re company’s called buddingSTEM (which is really cool). 

Here’s a quote from their site:

We tell our girls they can do anything. Be anything.

So, why is it so hard to find clothes for young girls who want to explore the universe or dig for dinosaurs?

buddingSTEM is ready to change that – with a complete line of girls’ clothing celebrating space, dinosaurs, and other things all kids love!

We’ve spent the last year designing our own prints and working with a textile designer to bring them to life. We have manufacturers ready to go in Los Angeles and Seattle. We are ready to start production as soon as we are funded.  Once our clothes are made, we will open our e-commerce store at, and we have a solid business plan for getting our products into stores.

With your help on Kickstarter, we can bring these designs to market!

However they still need a HECK OF A LOT OF MONEY before they can really start. 

So, if anyone can help please do, and if you can’t donate than just share this with everyone possible.



These were the cards that we sent out this year - made, of course, by the amazing inchells! :D 84 cards sent in all! And I have to say, I am incredibly impressed by the artistry and creativity that has been sent in return! So many wonderful cards and gifts and special treats! WOW!

I hope to scan them all in and post pictures starting next week, just so everyone can see all the cool things that people sent! 

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Sherlock Seattle Valentine Exchange! I hope you feel as much love as I do right now! :D

I just got this in an email from my college.

As we gets closer to the end of the quarter, stress and anxiety tends to rise. Here are some things to think about and resources to consider. 

Recognized your successes and self-worth even if you fail.
Encourage those around you to succeed.
Learn from mistakes and know that you will survive them.
Accept that you deserve the best and it is alright to do your best.
eXhale and take in slow deep breathes while repeating words/phrases that affirm and encourage you.

its cool to attend a college that emails reminders like this to its students

i feel that everyone needs to read this, even if they are not a student.
