The first finished photo of my Zelda cosplay. 👑
I constructed this costume over the course of about six weeks, but I spent just as long planning and researching the techniques that would go into it. Despite my time crunch to finish it for Katsucon, I am proud of myself for not cutting any corners or sacrificing my commitment to quality to get it done. (I just worked crazy long hours every day for weeks instead, haha)
This is probably the most complex project I’ve tackled to date. Although there are some small improvements I would still like to make, I’m really pleased with how it came out overall. Get ready to see lots more photos of this one!

Man, it’s been a crazy week. Finally had time to boot up my game today and work on another Windy Island lot. This one uses my Slice of Lime Cottage as the base - I expanded it and completely redecorated and re-landscaped it. My aim was to make it a family vacation home (though you could also live here permanently, of course). It’s also CC-free now. More pics to follow!
Masquerade III: The Rules of the Game – (The Real) Part 6 (Jungkook x Reader x another BTS member)
One must know the rules of the game, in order to come and play.
!! If you haven’t, please read the first two sagas in this series: MASQUERADE & Masquerade II !! [There will be spoilers if you read this story first.]
Summary: With Club Masquerade’s original hosts “graduating” one at a time, it’s up to the newcomers to pick up the slack and keep the customers happy. And who better to take the reins than the notorious Red Mask’s prodigy, Jeon Jungkook. But things become a bit difficult when you come into the picture, with your desire to do research on the rules of love and dating through your experience with your host. Will Jungkook be able to satisfy your curiosities… or will someone else?
Jungkook x Reader x BTS member [Read on to find out who >:P] (ft. Jimin & Hoseok) CEO au, Host au, Cop!Kook au Fluff & Smut
A/N: Thanks again for being so patient :) It’s been a crazy few weeks for me with BTS & with work >< but I’m glad I finally was able to finish the update woo ~ I placed another “Keep Reading” link so as usual if it isn’t opening, shoot me a message ~ Enjoy!
it me or is Mr. Park staring at us creepily?“ You hummed as you and
Jungkook got settled inside your cubicle.
Jungkook glanced over to find Jimin
grinning widely in front of the cubicle with his arms crossed, not saying a
"Um can we help you?”
Jimin clutched his chest and fell to
the side of the cubicle dramatically. “I can’t believe my two favorite
people didn’t trust me enough to confide in me!!”
Your eyebrow rose at the sudden
change of behavior and emotion. “What’re you talking about Mr. Park?”
"No.“ Jimin exhaled and
looked forlorn. "Don’t mind me. I apparently am not worthy enough to be
told of your love…after I went to such lengths to get you two together.”
Relaxing after a crazy week. Our oldest son turned 18 yesterday and my work took a huge positive upswing. Been working crazy hard for 7 years and it paid off. Feeling super professionally accomplished and proud of myself.
It happened so suddenly. We were all sitting
down enjoying our time together. I was so glad to see y/n and Kappy getting
along. He’s become one of my good friends out here, I trust him a lot. Y/N was
explaining her job to Kappy. I sit there and admire how excited and proud she
is to explain it. I turn my head for a moment and that’s when I saw Will walk
into the restaurant. Anxious, I started to fidget, not knowing what to do. If
he sees me he’s going to blow up and cause a scene. The last thing I want is to
piss him off even more. He still brings up the first night every once in a
while. I could always stay here and risk him possibly seeing me, but it would
be better if I could convince him to leave.
Ok. It’s official. I have gone full Hyperion. Took me waaaaaay too long to do this and I’m so sorry for everything. Gosh what have I done. I kinda have radishezrom and dequidt to thank for for this unhealthy (but enjoyable) Hyperion obsession…. Help. My current wallpaper is the bottom one haha.
Also I’ll most likely upload the individual characters somewhere down the road. When I start organising things. In the meantime, I hope this is pleasing enough. Thanks and have a nice day all!
EDIT: I resized it so I hope it looks less pixelated! Sorry about that guys. :P
am assuming you meant Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon, but if you meant them as a pairing,
you should know that, among other things, I have a student/teacher pairing
squick. So this will be gen. I’m sorry if that’s not what you wanted, but
that is what I can write. If you’re
really set on the pairing and time travel, there is an apparently excellent
Obi-Wan/Qui-Gon time travel story called Re-Entry, by the wonderful @deadcatwithaflamethrower. I haven’t
read the story, for obvious reasons, but most people seem to love it. (It’s long, though. Something like 1.5 million words across the
story and its sequel, I think I heard.)

folks! That’s the last of the current
round of prompts. Normally, I would open
prompts up again in a week or so.
Unfortunately, I’m about a week out from a mission set and class schedule
that will leave me with- if I’m lucky- about a week and a half of non-crazy
work hours between now and mid-July (and yes, that includes this upcoming week). So,
prompts will be opened sometime after I recover from the entire thing. Hopefully, sometime before August, but no
AN: Hiii beautiful peeps! how are you? So, this is something I’ve been thinking about for a while but, as I’m not as half as talented as the people here plus being English my second language, I’ve always been pretty scared to write this. However in the last few days it became almost painful thinking about this story and not putting it on (digital) paper. So here it is the first part. Leave a feedback, if you want. Of any kind.
Before leaving you with the story, I’d like to thank the people I talk to here on tumblr and other social media: YOU ROCK GUYS! (and sorry if sometimes I bother you too much or get overexcited) (you know who you are)
WARNINGS: few curses (sorry), mention of period (I don’t think it’s too harmful but someone could be grossed out)
WORDS: 3072 (I’M SO SORRY)
here you are ‘Mangoes’ *plays trumpet*
realized you were bouncing your legs and the ‘click-click’ of the heels could
be heard in the whole airport.
You didn’t know
why you were anxious.
Well, you knew.
But you hadn’t
yet realized you were THAT anxious.
You rubbed your
hands on your face.
You weren’t ready
to face whatever was waiting for you behind that gate.
You hadn’t seen
him in a week and, although you were over the moon when he told you he was
going to bring Luz as his date to the Oscars, for both emotional and logistic
reasons, you were regretting your choice: you needed to be with him.
To support him.
“Or to have
his support?” You told yourself with a low voice.
The news caught
you off-guard: you never said it out loud, but you were sure he was going to
everything worse? Paul, Benji and Justin were the nicest guys ever and you
really enjoyed their work, but the love of your life was… The love of your
worried about all that Egot, pegot, pigeon, how-you-wanna-call-it stuff. You
were worried about all the preassure he received, you were worried about the
future interviews, you were worried about the side effects of this loss on the
creative process of the man you loved.
Deep in your mind
you knew you were over-reacting but let’s face it: he had quite a ego and
things like this could trigger in his mind trails of not-so-optimistic
thoughts. You simply didn’t want him to build a fortress around his persona.
You’ve talked to
him on phone in the past few days and even faced-time him: he seemed sad and
upset, but it was something barely percepible. He said: ‘I have
never thought I had a chance of winning. I was just thrilled to be there and to
introduce Auli'i.’ On the other side of the emotions spectrum, Luis was furious
and more than once he was stopped from publishing not so nice comments on
twitter. Luz called you the evening after the ceremony and said she caught her
mother sniffling on the balcony of the hotel room.
You knew what was
happening: they were sad because they imagined he was sad, he was keeping all
the emotions trapped in his chest to not worry them. He was usual to act like
that until he reached the breaking point, which consisted in writing a
heart-wrenching song or a fight between the two of you over ‘why the arabic
coffee blend wasn’t as good as the brazilian’ or similar silly things.
But this time it
It was different.
This time you’ll
have to be the 'glue’ to keep him together, a thing that he did for you during
the hormones or job-related freaking out moments.
But were you
You didn’t know.
You didn’t know how to get ready. You didn’t know anything except that his
flight has just landed, as the board suggested.
You checked the
time on your phone just to be blocked be the sight of your lockscreen. It was
one of your favorite photos: he was napping on the bed, surrounded by 'his
girls’: the twins only few months old at his sides and your dog at his feet.
You came back from the kitchen with two bottles of warm milk just to find that
heart-melting view. You snapped the pic quickly before waking them up.
'Lin, wake up.’ You tried to call him.
He had developed this strange habit during your
honeymoon (which happened almost a year ago): as he was hot, he slept wrapped
around your body with his head on your chest. You couldn’t complain as it was
January, in Iceland.
But NY in September was surely hotter.
'Lin, sweetheart, you have to wake up.’ You repeated
raising your voice a little.
'Don’t call me sweetheart.’ He mumbled in your skin.
'Ah ah, you are awake.’ You said poking at his head.
'Why did I marry such a smart woman that makes me
appear so stupid?-he placed a kiss on your skin before turning his face towards
you with a loving gaze- Oh, now I remember.’ He smiled.
'Don’t even try to compliment my beauty in order to
stay in bed.’
'But it’s Sunday. And I’m on a very soft and warm spot
I’d like not to leave.’ He smirked winking in your direction.
'Are you implying I’ve gained weight?!’ You tried to
'Just in the right spots.’ He said.
'WHAT?!’ Now you were a little offended. You pushed
him away and tried to leave the bed.
'Ehii. Don’t be mad at me! You are the one that
explained me why women gain weight during period.-he stopped you on the side of
the bed- And as I was saying, only- he kissed a spot on your shoulder-in-
another kiss- the-kiss- right- kiss- places.’
'That doesn’t change my feelings.’ You replied sitting
on the bed, checking the phone while he put his chin on your shoulder.
'Moreover I’m not on my period.’
'Yes, you are.’ He said.
'No, I’m not. Trust me, it’s difficult to not notice
if you are bleeding.’ You snapped back.
You felt him streaching to reach his phone on the
'Yes, your period should have started 5 days ago.’ He
said checking something on the screen.
'Please, tell me you don’t have a period app.’ You
said trying to hide your laugh.
'If your wife turns into a angry and hungry, fire-
spitting.. - you turned to watch him with revengeful eyes and he noticed- but
super smart and beautiful dragon, you’d have done the same.’ He smiled.
'Well, your app is wrong… Not in the calculation
(you mentally checked if 28 days has passed). But I’m not on my period right
now. Although it’s very strange: I’m a Swiss clock!’ You said a little
'Y/N, you have done crazy shifts at work this past
'Yes, you could be right. It has to be the stress.’
You said putting your socks on.
'Absolutely! And you know which is the best remedy?’
He dragged you back on a lying position.
'Lin-Manuel Miranda, don’t even try. You have planned
this brunch with our parents- you said getting up and heading towards the
bathroom- So, you and that cute little ass of yours have to leave the bed. Or
we’ll be late.’
'Hey! My butt is cute but it ain’t “little”!’
He replied lying on the side and pointing towards it.
You laughed and before entering the bathroom, you
stood in front of the mirror.
'Did I really put on so much?’ You said with a
'Man, I shouldn’t have never said it! - he facepalmed
himself- or at least I should have put it in a better way. What I meant, you
know, … It’s… Like… God, that’s embarassing…’
You turned to face him. 'Lin, I married you. And trust
me, your 'emarassing-things-i’ve-done’ list is well know to me. Spit it.’
'Let’s say that your “side A” has … How can
i … “Improved”.. Yes, that’s the word!’ He was stummering and
blushing. He was simply the cutest.
'Whut?’ You giggled.
'In the last ten days, some outfits you wore were
like.. Seriously mind blowing..’ He continued moving his hands as to show an
And you could recall few times he complimented you
more than usual before leaving the house in the morning.
'But I haven’t forgiven you yet.- you said picking
your clothes and heading towards the bathroom. Ah, I’ll need this room for a
quite long time. Maybe it’s better if you use the other one.’ You said winking
and closing the door.
'Damn, I knew this going going to happen.’ You heard
What you both didn’t know was that you were having the
'What if she’s preg-..’
'What if I’m pregnan- No, Y/N, don’t even think about
it. It’s just stress. Don’t think about it.’ You mumble to yourself while shampooing.
You were in your undies, washed, moisturized staring
at your dress: a wonderful, pencil-skirt, teal and blue dress. It was one of
your favorite as it was knee-lenght but it fitted you perfectly in all your

You wore it and started pulling the zip up: 'side b’
area went smooth, no visible changes in you belly area either.
You breathed with relief.
'Ah! I was right!’ You said with pride.
You couldn’t be more wrong.
The 'improvement’ Lin pointed out was real and you had
to remove your bra to close the zip all the way up.
'Damn it, he was right.’ You said putting your hands
on your hips and noticing how your 'side A’ as he called it was quite prominent
from the v-shaped cut.
You checked the time on your phone: 'LIN, WE’RE ALMOST
LATE!’ You screamed rushing outside the bathroom.
'I’m ready in the kitchen waiting for you. Do you want
some coffee?’ He shouted.
'Lin, we’re going to a brunch. Breakfast and lunch.
Which means plenty of coffee.’ You answered back while putting on shoes, a
blazer and taking your earrings.
'But I need my coffee.’ He insisted.
'You’ll have a ulcer soon if you keep ingesting all
this caffeine.’ You get to the kitchen while putting on the jewels.
You found him staring back at you with his mouth open
and his mug mid-air.
'What?’ You said putting your head down and shaking
your hair to give them volume.
He was still silent.
'Lin? - you looked back at him- should I go change?’
You pointed at your dress.
'WAIT. NO. This is exactly what I meant earlier..
You’re just so.. I’m trying to figured out how you you possible ended up
marring me..’ He said at the speed of light.
You were blushing as a 16 years old high schooler. 'I’m
fluttered- you said kissing his cheek and putting his mug down, but I don’t
think it would make a good excuse with the parents. Chop chop. Let’s go.’ You
headed towards the door swining your hips more than usual.
'Is this some sort of punishment for what I said
'Dang it. You really are a MacArthur genius.’ You
winked teasing him.
The brunch went well until you all decided to have
'I’ll take the mango salad.’ You said reading the
'Mango? Y/N, you hate mango!’ Your mother said looking
'I remember the time me and Luis’s sister were
pregnant at the same time and we ate mangoes all the times. In fact, there’s a
legend according to which if you’re pregnant with a Miranda, you’ll even dream
mangoes.’ Luz said and all started laughing.
You and Lin, instead, widened your eyes and looked at
each other remembering your unshared thoughts of few hours before.
You could almost see the huge, red-written sign spelling 'SHIT’
on each other faces.
Soon the other four people noticed your silence.
'Lin-Manuel, is everything alright?’ Asked Luis while
the others were all smilig at you.
You were on the point of throwing up.
'Yes, papa. I think that Y/N wants mango just because
I made her try the mango flavoured tea you brought us from London. Honey, maybe
it’s better if you stick with strawberries. You know, fresh mango is a stronger
flavour. You have plenty of time to exercise before starting eating it non
stop for 9 months.’ He took your hand and gave it a little squeeze.
You got what he was doing as you haven’t drink any tea
'You’re right.’ You almost whispered before excusing
yourself and going to the restroom.
You could still hear Lin engaging a conversation with
the two women about fruits and pastries to move their attention from what has
You went to the bathroom and put your wrists under the
cold water in attempt to calm you down.
You didn’t want to think about this right now. You
want to do it at home. With Lin.
Then you went to the bathroom and you found out your
But you weren’t as relieved as you thought. Yes, you
were sad. A little bubbly Lin wasn’t a bad thing at all. But apparently destiny
had different plans for you.
Before going out you sent a text Lin: 'False
allarm. Red wave just arrived.’
You went back to the table and you found him still
talking about the secrets for a flaky pie.
'Lin, your phone buzzed. You should check it.’ You
said sitting down.
'Don’t worry, I’ll see it later.’ He answered.
'It could be something important’ you squeezed his
thigh staring him in the eyes.
He got the message and took the phone. You could feel
his smile fading. He took your hand and place a kiss on it.
The brunch continued and the six of you went for a
stroll then each couple went a difference direction.
As you were walking home you passed in front of the
supermarket and, as he could read your mind, he said: 'You still want that mango, am I right?'
You nodded and added 'We also run out of painkillers
and I’ll need them these days.’
'I’ll go to the pharmacy and you the store. Meet me in
10 at the ice cream isle.’ He said kissing you.
So you did. When you met next to the refrigerators, he
was happier than when you left him minutes before.
'Since when pharmacy makes you happy?’ You asked while
picking your favorite type of ice cream.
'Since they started selling… LOLLIPOPS!’ He jumped
showing two candies and giving you one.
'You’re such a kid.’ You laughed.
He coughed showing the wedding band.
'Let’s go pay this fruit and ice creams.’
As you went home, you undressed to get ready to chill
on the couch as each Sunday.
He was still in the bedroom when you called him 'Lin,
do you want to watch a movie?’ You fell on the couch.
'Not yet.’ He shouted.
'Yet? Do we have to do something?’ You asked.
'Did your flood continued since this morning?’ He
asked poking his head from the door.
'I’m sorry, what?’ You asked at the unusual question.
'Did your bleeding continued since this morning?’ He
asked again with his hands wrapped around his torso.
'This is gross. But not so much.- you answered
skeptically- Do you mind telling me why you’re asking me this? I’m ok with
sharing, less details maybe.’
'Could you check again?’
'Please Y/N. I promise I’ll explain if you do.’
'You’re acting weird but ok.’ You headed to the
bathroom with him waiting outside.
It actually seemed like your period stopped so you
went out and told him.'For your information, my period is not active right now.
Now, my explanation.’
'Sit down and I’ll do it.-he showed you a spot on the
bed- This is something I remembered from when Luz was pregnant and I went with
her to the gyno- he saw the shocked and disgusted expression on your face- I
STOPPED IN THE WAITING ROOM. Today, words keep failing me. However, there’s
this thing called 'implantation bleed’ that resembles period but it’s the egg..
Implanting… It was more scientific in my mind.’ He chuckled.
'Lin, I don’t think..’ You said looking down.
'The mangoes, Y/N.’ He said with his eyes sparkling.
'I love your mother, you know this. But as a woman in
a world were science exsist, I can’t trust “mangoes stories”.’ You said placing
a hand on his cheek.
'Let’s just try. I’ve bought the test.’
That’s why he was so happy. You didn’t know what to
do: this morning you realized you wanted to have babies as soon as possible. At
the same time you didn’t want to be delusional.
You were going to say no but you saw his expecting and hopeful eyes. You
couldn’t let him down. Maybe he could have been right.
'Ok- he jumped up hugged you- but I’ll pee and then
leave them in the bathroom. We’ll watch a movie and later we’ll check. Got it?’
'Yes, ma'am.’ He went to his wardrobe and took 3
'Just to be sure.’ He smiled.
'You’re a pain in the ass, Manuel.’
'I love you too.’
You both smiled at the inside joke.
You went to the bathroom, did what you have to do and
then the both of you went to the living room with popcorns, your chopped fruit
and the infamous tea.
Lin wrapped his arms around your legs, that were
resting on his own, while your head was on his chest.
After ten minutes your heartbeat was almost normal,
you started enjoying the story and started laughing at the improbable adventures
of the characters.
15 minutes from the end, Lin stand up to go to the
bathroom as he drank almost a litre of tea and you were so caught in the story,
you didn’t even realize was going to happen.
You just heard him shouting.
You jumped from the couch and went to the bathroom
expecting to see blood/ body parts missing from him.
'LIN! What the hell happened?’ You shouted as an
You found your full grown husband on the floor with
his hands on his face saying something you couldn’t understand.
You knelt next to him: 'Lin, what happened?’ You tried
to remove the hands just to find his face red and covered in tears.
'Mangoes. Y/N. MANGOES.’ He said smiling even more.
You connected the dots and standed up to have a
confirmation: the three test had 2 lines on it.
'MANGOES!’ You screamed crying before reaching the same
spot Lin was.
After almost an hour of laugh, tears, kisses and
'mangoes’ you stood up.
You decided to not tell the news to anyone until the
A month later you organized a little dinner at your

On this day in music history: June 4, 1984 - “The Glamorous Life”, the debut album by Sheila E. is released. Produced by Sheila and The Starr Company (aka Prince), it is recorded at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, CA from December 27, 1983 - April 4, 1984. The first album by the Oakland, CA born and raised singer/percussionist comes about after Prince (who has known Escovedo since 1978) asks if she’s interested in making an album. She agrees, first collaborating on the song “Erotic City” with the artist (released as the B-side of “Let’s Go Crazy”) the same week that work on her album begins. The first tracks recorded are the title track and “Next Time Wipe The Lipstick Off Your Collar” in late 1983. The basic tracks for “The Belle Of St. Mark”, “Oliver’s House” and “Shortberry Strawcake are recorded in January of 1984. "Noon Rendevous” is the last track recorded in mid-February of 1984. Five of the six aforementioned tracks are originally intended for the album Prince is producing for Apollonia 6, but reassigns them to Sheila instead. Prince takes Escovedo into the studio in April of 1984, recording her vocal and percussion tracks in just four days. Now complete, Prince plays the finished album for his management, who in turn secure Sheila E. a contract with Warner Bros. Records. An immediate success, the album spins off three singles including the title track (#7 Pop, #9 R&B) and “The Belle Of St. Mark” (#34 Pop, #68 R&B). “The Glamorous Life” peaks at number seven on the Billboard R&B album chart, number twenty eight on the Top 200, and is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.
