I've never read any type of fan fiction , soo can you recommend me good slow burn camren fics? Thanks love your blog girly

Lauren never planned on living in the house she lived in. She never planned on working the job she worked. She never planned on befriending a strange girl named Camila, either. Lauren never planned a lot of things.Thanks sweets 😘

Chances (one of my favs)

Camila and Lauren both share a room in college, but that’s about the only thing they have in common. At least that’s what they assume. From the start, they haven’t been able to get along with each other, seeing as they’re pretty incompatible and they pick fights over everything. But little do they know that they’re each other’s closest friends on Tumblr. They message each other constantly and along the way, feelings developed. What happens when they soon realize on a bold decision to meet on a blind date that the person who they want nothing to do with is the same person they think about right before they go to sleep?

Lifeboat Lighthouse (favs)

Camila’s entire life had been mapped out for her since she was child, she would go to college, study business and then eventually take over her father’s company. It was a life she never wanted but had no say in at all. But when the privileged daughter of a multimillionaire meets Lauren, a waitress on the luxury cruise ship where she’ll be spending the summer, her world and everything she knows is turned upside down. Camila is about to learn the hard way that just like the ocean that she sails on, life can be unpredictable. Like the turning tides, everything can change in an instant.

Walk a Mile (favs)

Look with your eyes. Judge with your soul. First impressions almost always suck. They can be spot on or way off, depending on how open and receptive you are to the other person. When you make preconceived notions about people, learning to tolerate them can be a little difficult. What if you have to live with them? That’s the situation Camila and Lauren have been put in. As typical and cliche as it may be, two totally different worlds collide. However this time, neither of them know whether they’ll mould or combust.

Yours Truly 

Lauren and Camila know a lot about each other, except for, well, their names. They’ve been writing anonymous, handwritten letters to each other for an English assignment for a couple months now and during that time, Lauren’s developed a genuine interest for a girl whose handwriting resembles a child’s first attempt at using a pencil. But she couldn’t be more charmed by it. What happens when Lauren unexpectedly finds out that the shy girl in her class who she doesn’t know a single thing about has the exact same handwriting as in the letters she anticipates reading every single day?

Through Her Eyes

Lauren never planned on living in the house she lived in. She never planned on working the job she worked. She never planned on befriending a strange girl named Camila, either. Lauren never planned a lot of things.

Reasons to go, reasons to stay

“And I wonder how many polar opposites we have brought together by falling in love. Inside you could have been the match that started the fire and burned down an entire house, and inside of me may live the remnants of a rocking chair inside the house that was burned to the ground. All these little things… these cells that make up our bodies, they could have once despised one another. But now every single part of me is in love with every single part of you. Just with one touch we would be resolving age old conflicts, or ushering the tip of the tallest mountain to kiss the sand that lies at the deepest part of the ocean.”

Yellow series : Yellow / Blue / Green  (FLUUUFFFF)

Lauren Jauregui hated Camila Cabello, plain and simple. Of course, who could blame her? Camila had been the one who read Lauren’s private texts in front of the whole cafeteria, forcing her out of the closet. Lauren left for New York with her three best friends the day she graduated, thinking she had escaped Camila. The only problem is, Camila is back. And different. Completely different. Not the kind of ‘different’ you’d expect, either.

The Stripper (SMUT)

Have you ever imagined having two lives? Be two people at the same time? I bet you have. But between thinking and living there was a very big distance, believe it. Imagine… Camila, a sweet and delicate woman. Karla, sexy and imposing. Which one would you choose? What’s your type? Hard, I know. Let’s let Lauren answer this one…

Experiments (SMUT)

A lot of girls experiment in college; it’s natural. It’s no different at the University of Miami, and when they’re looking to experiment, they know exactly who to go to. But what will happen when she finally falls for one of the girls she hooks up with?

Trials & Tribulations (very long but must read)

“A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.”

CC7 / LJ10 (still ongoing - not many updates)

Lauren and Camila are two of the most promising soccer talents in the country. The two skilled girls are playing for the U-17 US team to win the world championship in Costa Rica. Their connection on the field is obvious but what happens off field when unexpected feelings come in to play?

Surreal Perfection (non au)

It’s been a year since Lauren decided to break out from Fifth Harmony to start her own band, and Camila still hasn’t forgiven her for leaving them, and for leaving her. After a brief encounter at an award show, their lives come crashing back together. Angst, Drama, Humour, Romance, and everything else in between.

The Girl Next Door

Camila Cabello is an average girl. She’s not popular, or somewhere in between. She belongs to a group that her school refers to as the Brains. She’s extremely smart, involved in many educational clubs and the only thing fun in her life, advanced choir.  She’s that type of girl who gets pushed around, does people’s homework because they tell her too, and gets tormented by the preps. The preps (the popular kids) are a group of people who torment people like the Brians. Camila has found her self running from them all her life. Along side with her friends Dinah Jane Hansen, Normani Kordei, Ally Brooke and Darren Criss. But one day during one of her encounters with the preps, her life changes forever. And it was all because of her.

United Arab Emirates women's player lives dream with Caps

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) – When Fatima Al Ali first started playing hockey in the United Arab Emirates, she skated with young children half her size.

“They were looking up at me like, ‘What is she doing here?”’ she said.

On Wednesday, she was halfway around the world skating with the NHL’s Washington Capitals, and they knew exactly what she was doing there. Capitals great Peter Bondra was impressed by Al Ali’s advanced stickhandling moves during a visit to Abu Dhabi, and the team flew her to the United States to meet her favorite player, Alex Ovechkin, during the league’s “Hockey is for Everyone” month.

The 27-year-old Al Ali only began playing hockey six years ago after falling in love with the sport as the official photographer for the men’s national team, and now she’s among the best players on the women’s team in the United Arab Emirates. According to the International Ice Hockey Federation, the UAE has only 82 adult women’s players among its 802 skaters and just nine rinks in the country of almost 6 million where the average winter temperature is about 79 degrees.

“Hockey is getting more and more popular, and Fatima is one of the key factors to this success,” said Rasti Pavlikovsky, who runs the hockey camp where Bondra saw Al Ali in November. “She loves the sport, she is at the rink every day, not just skating and training, but also helping out to run the practices and games, she is also a great referee at international level.”

Al Ali recently got punched in the face while breaking up a fight as a referee but finished the game. She’s a hockey player, all right, with skills that could probably earn her a spot on women’s club team in North America.

She has had a busy week.

After visiting the National Mall and seeing sights around the nation’s capital Monday with her brother, Mohammed, Al Ali took in the Wizards’ overtime thriller against LeBron James and the NBA-champion Cleveland Cavaliers at night and visited the UAE embassy and met ambassador Yousef Al Otaiba on Tuesday. Overwhelmed by her first trip to Washington, she cried in the Capitals’ locker room Tuesday night as she met players after their game.

She found some comfort on the ice with them Wednesday. As cameras from about a dozen media outlets documented her every stride, Al Ali talked about herself, the sport in the Middle East and stick curves and different moves.

“I was so nervous going on the ice, but once we started talking it just calmed down,” she said. “We’re just talking about hockey, something we all share and something we all love.”

On Thursday, she did the ceremonial puck drop at the Capitals-Red Wings game.

Like her country, her hockey skills are still a work in progress, but Capitals coach Barry Trotz was impressed.

“You think a lady playing hockey in (the United Arab Emirates) it doesn’t sort of mix, but it’s great,” Capitals coach Barry Trotz said. “To see what she’s doing is fantastic. She’s going to be a real role model, and I think it’s a good symbol.”

Al Ali got a signed stick from Ovechkin to commemorate her visit. Ovechkin also hopes she takes home more motivation to play and spread the sport.

“It’s good for the game, it’s good for me, it’s good for hockey,” Ovechkin said. “I told her I hope she’s going to bring more interest in the game to her country and maybe it’s going to be a new league because she’s got to meet some people out here.”

Al Ali is not from one of the countries targeted by President Donald Trump’s executive order barring travelers from seven Muslim majority nations from entering the U.S. At the Capitals’ suburban Washington practice facility she skated around the rink wearing a hijab and enjoying what she called the best thing to happen to her in her life.

“I’m not here for politics,” Al Ali said. “I’m just here for sports and hockey.”

During his trip to Abu Dhabi, Bondra met with UAE hockey officials and coached an under-18 practice. He said hockey is on the way in a very nontraditional market.

“Doing a little hockey clinic, there was various stage of the level of game,” Bondra said. “There was some good skaters - you could tell that they’ve been skating for maybe two years more or there was some kids just starting. The hockey’s young there and it’s growing.”

Al Ali is at the forefront of that on the women’s side, and Pavlikovsky said nine or 10 more players from her team want to participate in their next camp run by former NHL and European players. That’s the impact she hopes to have.

“That’s my goal,” Al Ali said. “Everything I started doing in my life I hope it inspires other people to do something and break the barrier in their culture, whatever they’re doing.”

Actual footage of me in my first days of Overwatch (y)

Japangardi Miller spent his early childhood living a traditional and nomadic Warlpiri life. The first time he saw white men was around 1928, during the time of the Coniston Massacre which was one of the last events of the frontier wars. He saw the men and their guns and heard about their bullets which had already killed many Warlpiri people. Japangardi was placed under the control of a white pastoralist and was used, along many other indigenous peoples, for free labour in the mines and cattle stations. He drove cattle from near the West Australian border to near Brisbane, at the end of the trip, his boss sold the horses, forcing Japangardi and his colleagues to walk all the way back home.

After a lifetime of hard physical work, he moved back to Mount Theo and with his sister in law, Peggy Brown, began to provide refuge and help for those youths addicted to sniffing petrol. Mrs Brown and Japangardi began this rehabilitation program completely out of their own pockets, using their age pensions to run activities for the kids and buy extra food and clothing. All their work was voluntary. His methodology was simple: take young addicted people out into the bush, teach them traditional law and country skills, and let the power of the land and culture heal their spirit. In 1994, half the teenage population of Yuendumu (Central Australias largest indigenous community) was sniffing petrol, but eight years later no one sniffed at all, and ex addicts went on to become youth leaders and community workers. Modern treatment does not commonly advise such ‘alternative’ methods as this. Australian social policy analysts deemed petrol sniffing in central Australia an ‘unsolvable problem’, and to primary western methods of treatment, it was.

Japangardi passed away on the 31st of October last year.

Worldbuilding Questions #2
  1. What are some of the primary imports and exports of each country (if any)?
  2. Are there strict social classes?  If so, is there the possibility of upward mobility among them or are people basically stuck in the class into which they’re born?
  3. Are non-heterosexual relationships generally accepted?  Does it vary from country to country?
  4. How highly educated are the average citizens of each country?
  5. What are some customs related to marriage and family in each country?
  6. What jobs/skills are considered most valuable, noble, respectable, etc.?  What about the culture makes them value these skills over others?
  7. What was the longest war in the world’s history?  How did it start, and how did it (or will it) end?
  8. What are some geographical elements that have been influential on the development of civilizations in the world?
  9. What are the largest cities in each country?  Are these always the capitals or not?
  10. Have there ever been any violent revolutions to overthrow a government?  What was the cause of it?  Was was the result of it?
Please do realize...

Disguised as a boy, Pidge is very young. That’s why she looks 14. Female facial features are softer and rounder, thus for a male, one would look young. (Look at Mulan as Ping)

But have you guys forgotten how KATIE looks like. As a girl, I’m pretty sure she’s older, around 16 or 17.

Also, Shiro looks older because of his muscular build, the weariness of his time as a Champion and prisoner, as well as his hair. Tbh, if you colored his hair black and take out the scar, you’d see that he’s around late 19. Besides, if you look at him during the Kerberos and pre-Kerberos mission, he’s around 18. And while others say 18 is young for a pilot to fly an important mission, do realize that 18 is legally an adult in most countries, Shiro is hella skilled (he’s not the Black Paladin for nothing), hes level headed, and out of all the older pilots available, they chose him. It’s not about the age. It’s about the skill.

Just my two cents on this.

Also, I think the creators are trolling the fans, giving info out of context, just to throw us off our scent. There’s more to this than meets the eye.

Camren Fanfics:

Trials and Tribulations - (Trailer)  It’s the first day of Lauren’s junior year of high school after a summer spent away at softball camp. By a chance encounter she gets talking to Camila in the hallway, an intriguing girl with a sad story. Whilst Lauren was away enjoying a summer romance, Camila was recovering in hospital from a hit and run accident which has left her with both physical disabilities and emotional scars. Lauren is instantly smitten, but, as the two of them become friends and she helps Camila with her recovery, will her feelings be reciprocated? “A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.”

Do I Wanna Know? - (Trailer)  Lauren Jauregui is a well-known singer and the only former band member of Fifth Harmony who has continuously worked hard to be a solo artist. She has it all: fame, success and critical acclaim for her music. But what happens, when the one person you’d never expect to come back into your life, surprises you at your concert? Lauren’s former band member, Camila Cabello, has seemingly grown into her own person ever since the group has split up almost six years ago. Meeting again, they embark on a new journey. But can they leave the past behind?

CC7 - (Trailer) Lauren and Camila are two of the most promising soccer talents in the country. The two skilled girls are playing for the U-17 US team to win the world championship in Costa Rica. Their connection on the field is obvious but what happens off field when unexpected feelings come in to play?

Journals - Many people find their escape through writing. That was true for Camila. She wrote in her journal daily, without fail, about her long-time crush, Lauren. But when her journal ends up in the wrong hands, she’s forced to either succumb to reality or make her voice heard.

Yellow - (Trailer) Lauren Jauregui hated Camila Cabello, plain and simple. Of course, who could blame her? Camila had been the one who read Lauren’s private texts in front of the whole cafeteria, forcing her out of the closet. Lauren left for New York with her three best friends the day she graduated, thinking she had escaped Camila. The only problem is, Camila is back. And different. Completely different. Not the kind of ‘different’ you’d expect, either.

Slytherins Do It Better - (Harry Potter AU) Lauren is in Slytherin, Camila is in Gryffindor. Camila’s best friend, Dinah, hates Lauren. If life were easy, that would be the end of the story right there.

Chances Camila and Lauren both share a room in college, but that’s about the only thing they have in common. At least that’s what they assume. From the start, they haven’t been able to get along with each other, seeing as they’re pretty incompatible and they pick fights over everything. But little do they know that they’re each other’s closest friends on Tumblr. They message each other constantly and along the way, feelings developed. What happens when they soon realize on a bold decision to meet on a blind date that the person who they want nothing to do with is the same person they think about right before they go to sleep?

MY “TO BE WRITTEN” FIC COLLECTION

Missed It by That Much (A Get Smart AU)

Tony Stark is a billionaire, a genius, a playboy, and a secret agent. He is Agent 86 of CONTROL, an agency of the US Government dedicated to protecting freedom and democracy from the machinations of KAOS, the organization of evil. He always manages to save the day, get the job done, even if his methods are a little…unorthodox.

His partner is Agent 99, a terrifying and beautiful redhead who sets his heart fluttering as she takes down enemy agents with laced lipstick and roundhouse kicks. She is devastatingly competent, a better agent than he will ever be, and he would be lost without her.

Led by Chief of CONTROL Nicholas Fury, they battle the forces of evil with brains, ingenuity, and…would you believe 15,000 of the most highly trained men and women poached from the best espionage training academies? How about 1200 of the top graduates from universities around the country? How about 100 skilled agents, including a robot named Jarvis, a recently defected Soviet spy named Natasha Romanoff, a long-suffering Air Force liaison named James Rhodes, and K9 Agent Fang?

For All of those who career with the arts, there is in France, a far more important date this weekend than elections, where fear of the Extreme Right FN, will elect an unproven: the pretence of Centrist Emmanuel Macron, who, at this juncture, is nothing else, but the direct heir to the Five Years of Misery Francois Hollande's Socialist ruling brought upon France and the French people.  France is a country of Skills, Creativity and Fine Craftsmanship.  That will be celebrated, with better than Hope, but evidence instead, all on display, till May 8 at the Grand-Palais.  If you are in Paris, this weekend, Do Not Miss It! 

Headcanon: In the beginning, Shego was so confident in her abilities that it didn’t occur to her that her total lack of credentials would prove an obstacle to starting a life of villainy. With her resources dwindling and no one willing to hire her, she had to resort to petty crimes to get by. Though she’d never admit it to anyone, the first couple months after she left Team Go were rough.
