cuz i work in a library

Ezra Koenig gives an “update” on Vampire Weekend’s LP4

every day I get comments & questions about the next Vampire Weekend album. obviously, we gotta take our time & get it right but the fans deserve some information. I know it feels like it’s been an eternity since the last one but time…is strange. this is what’s been happening:

2013- MVOTC release
2014 – still touring/promoting
2015 – mental health year (putting 3 albums in stores was taxing), worked on a vibey project you’ll hear abt soon
2016- writing LP4, long days in the library researching w/ the grad students
2017 – recording, trying to finish ASAP what else can I tell you without playing myself? hmm, it’s a lil more springtime than the last one. guitar’s not dead. there are songs (currently) called “Conversation” & “Flower Moon.” Flower Moon is hard to finish but I think it belongs on the album. working title is still Mitsubishi Macchiato cuz it is a helpful concept. I should probably stop there cuz all of that information is subject to change & I can’t tell you the really good stuff anyway 🍍🔥🍍🎶🌑🌒🌓🌔🌕🌖🌗🌘🌚

I saw one of your answers to what makes you happy was "reading really, really good fic" so I was wondering what some of your faves are? sorry if you've already answered this before! ^^ I know you've said you're a taekook fan, so I'm curious! :)

i don’t read much scenario fic anymore but i really loved mystline / btswriter’s work (she deactivated tho), but i highly recommend @jespere-hope not only bc she’s my buddy but also her writing style has gone through a lot of changes and i’m loving what’s she written lately! she’s definitely improved a lot from when she first started and now im proud to call her one of my favourite writers :) 

specifically for scenario fic tho i love @versigny‘s ceo!yoongi, @imaginethisbtslust and errors, @jeonseok’s spellbound and unsaid and @baeseoul‘s a friendly favour

for ship fic i really love anything and everything by @uziregar, particularly beta tau sigma and a sociolinguistic analysis of epenthesis in academic convergence (i actually loved the prof!namjin one so much i made a graphic for it….)

specifically taekook fics tho i can rec u a TON but my ult fave is pour up (drank) by mindheist (i think she has a joint tumblr with a few other really amazing writers? check them out @nikkmonoxyls), i also love pick me up, buttercup by vppa, some killer king you are and hit the lights by lethallergic, comeback kids and hickory by rix aka @crossfilth, king of the library, knight of his trade by madigraye (who i believe is @homoterrors), and finally, maybe we found love (right where we are) by wowoashley (she’s @that-jeon-guy on tumblr)

but yeah coolios check ‘em out! i read a lot more ship fics these days cuz i find most scenario fics aren’t written very well (sorry) but ofc there are many talented scenario fic writers as well!!!! appreciate yo writers guys!!!! also pls lemme know if some of the links dont work lol i was in a rush

Hiiii, I see you answering super personal questions right now and wondered if you had any tips for making penetration easier? I have always had a problem with this sometimes even when masturbating tbh & don't want it to be an obstacle for me going into sex work. Any advice you can give would be great like lube recommendations or anything. Btw you have the best way of answering questions, like a cool friend who wants the best for us curious ones on here haha

Aww thank you so much. I’m smiling like such a weirdo in the library rn. Full disclosure, I’m one of those people who gets abnormally wet. Has nothing to do with being turned on, as far as I’m aware, so am essentially always ‘ready’ for sex. Except right after a shower, which makes sense cuz water diminishes natural lubricant. A close friend (who I talk about masturbation with) expressed small vagina issues (not sure if that’s what you’re referring to) so I got her a dildo and she said that ~exploring~ herself with it helped a bunch. Not making that up lol. If you don’t currently own any toys then getting something to practice penetration with would be A+.

As for lube, @dirtyberd​ is my fave and she has a shop so I’d recommend buying from her! Or at least checking her recommendations, Jo Organic is solid and she’s said it’s her #1 (I use it as well). The only thing to definitively avoid is using oil-based lube with latex condoms bc it breaks them down.

I’d def focus on foreplay when being intimate dick-bearing peeps. So many of them are ready to stick it right in - in my experience, most of the older guys are more patient and know how important it is to get you involved beforehand. The more turned on you are the more receptive your bod will be so try to get yourself feeling relaxed. I like to close my eyes when with SDs/clients and think about things that actually turn me on. Cuz if I’m focusing on the person at hand it won’t happen. Sometimes I legit picture money signs lol, reminds me of the end goal and provides low-key comic relief. Realistically it helps to go with the flow and mentally detach yourself so you can experience the intimacy in a more private way while still aiding in a fulfilling experience for your client.

Just like with vanilla encounters, your safety and comfort are equally important. Def express your wants/needs to your partner, whether that be more foreplay or lube or whatever would be helpful. Another thing to try would be warming yourself up prior to meeting clients - carrying a bullet vibe and using that for a few min will speed up the process. Hope this helps, good luck babe. Xo

for those of u who maybe didnt see this when it came out awhile back, one of tezuka’s daughters finally opened up a locked drawer in his desk and found these like erotic unfinished sketches (to be honest i dont understand what the huge deal was at all because if u have read some of his library of work he wasnt exactly subtle about his fetishes, drew lots of ‘adult’ titles which have far much ‘weirder’. the sketches are like incredibly tame compared to what hes actually published so i…dont get it. i guess cuz they were ‘hidden’? but anyways) both east n west media ran with it and was like ‘oh my god i can’t believe tezuka drew this sexy transforming furry mouse!’ as though it was like. they popped open disneys secret cryogenic vault and found a photo of a boob in there. the height of scandal 

anyways my point being if u ever feel embarrassed about drawing silly/odd stuff please know they just released now a new book with all the sketches, like literally a delicate little novella about ‘we found this weird stuff locked in his desk and now we’re publishing it cuz its so weird can u believe this’ imagine being roasted this hard. u may have done lots of embarrassing things in ur life but at least u didnt get a book published entirely devoted to ur fetish sketches hidden in the back pages of your sketchbooks. except ur dead so u cant even be like ‘ok listen it was for a commission’ or something. brutal 

Lab Partners (Edmund x Reader)

Anon said: AHHH your imagines are adorable. Can I have one where you and Edmund are classmates in college, and kept getting paired up for group projects. And you two are at the library working on it last minute, and it’s late and the library is empty, and he keeps sending pick up lines cuz he’s so sleep deprived, and you find it funny and some point you kiss him and he’s shocked. And you thought you ruined everything but he admits that he liked you since the first day? Sorry for being so detailed

I was sitting at one of the long tables in the library waiting for Edmund to arrive before continuing the work on our Political Science project. We were nearly done; all that was left was to organize our survey results into a powerpoint. The class itself was fascinating, but I had a feeling that our professor paired us together on purpose. Edmund and I have been partners on every project this semester. Not that I’m complaining, though, he works hard and he is just as much of a perfectionist as I am.

“Sorry I’m a little late, (Y/N). You wouldn’t believe what I had to go through to get these.” Edmund plopped into the chair next to me and handed me a cup of coffee. “A house blend coffee with an ungodly amount of sugar is hard to come across at ten thirty at night.”

“Don’t you think it’s a little sad that you have my coffee order memorized?” I asked him even though I knew he liked his coffee with one sugar and two creams.

“We’re together so much I don’t know how I wouldn’t.” He sighed, cracked his knuckles, and handed me some sheets to input in our spreadsheet.

If Edmund drinks too much coffee it’s noticeable. He was on his third cup when I saw his foot jumping up and down.

“Hey, (Y/N),” he leaned back in his car so far I was afraid he would fall.

“Yeah Ed?” I responded without looking over.

“If you were a fruit, you’d be a fineapple.” I couldn’t help but to laugh at what I thought was the worst pick up line in history.

“Get back to work, we’re almost done.”

Not a lot of progress had been made when Edmund took another break. It was clear he was getting worn down even after all the caffeine.

“I’m not sure which quidditch team you play for, but I bet you’re a keeper.” He was grinning when I looked over at him.

“Just work, Pevensie,” I shook my head and fought back a smile. Turning back to my computer, I heard him laugh.

“Hey girl, are you my appendix? ‘Cause I want to take you out-” I cut him off by kissing him quickly. Having a huge crush on my project partner made it difficult to work, but he had brought that on himself. The goal was simply to get him to be quiet, and had I thought about it longer I might not have done it.

“Let’s get this project done,” I said when I pulled back. Edmund looked completely stunned and sat frozen in his chair. Slowly, he came back into reality.

“I knew you liked me,” he stated smugly. Suddenly I had no witty comebacks or jokes, and I was left stuttering. “Did you know you’re the only reason I didn’t drop the class?” he asked.


“Yeah, seriously. I was gonna drop it the first day, but you sat down next to me. Girls from my hometown aren’t nearly as beautiful or as nice as you are (Y/N). I wanted to get to know you.” Edmund smiled from ear to ear. I shook my head and laughed.

“We should get coffee sometime when we don’t have a huge deadline hanging over our heads.”

In the end we got an A on the project and our professor told us that he was impressed at how well we worked together. We set a date to get coffee on a weekend we were both in town, and I saw my name in his phone was changed to “appendix.” Edmund Pevensie is unbelievable.

A/N I’m very sorry this took me as long as it did! I have one or two more imagines I want to finish from a long time ago before I work on newer things :)

I don't have any eating disorders and I just eat whatever I feel like (which is quite balanced) but I feel like I'm really unfit. The only form of exercise I do is running up and down stairs or a fast walk. Going to a gym gives me anxiety. Idk why. Maybe it's cuz I'm not comfortable with my body but I get the same feeling when I go to a library too so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. I don't know where to start and I don't know what diets or workouts to trust. I'm​ not looking to gain or lose weight. Any advice?

Sometimes you have to push through the anxiety and experience something so you can realize it’s not that big of a deal.

Also, there are a billion ways to work out.  Sports.  Hiking.  Swimming.  Youtube videos with workouts you can do at home.  Magazines with workouts you can follow.  Websites that specialize in fitness.  Online motivation groups and personal trainers.  Running around your neighborhood.  Bike riding. Going up and down stairs.  You’re already on tumblr and there are hundreds of fitness oriented blogs.

You said you don’t know what workouts to trust, but I’m not sure why you would ask me for my advice.  I don’t think I’ve ever talked about fitness on this blog.  I’m a lazy lump who pays for a personal trainer so I have someone to guilt me into working out harder, because I find it hard to stay motivated on my own.  I’m the last person who should be advising you on this subject.

Houses of the Holy - Part 1

Word Count: 2158

Pairing: Dean x Reader

Warnings: Language, implied smut right at the start.

A/N: Threw another prompt from the Dean One Week Writing Challenge into this. “If there’s no food, I’m not going.” 

Series Rewrite Masterlist

Dean rolled his body off of yours, both of you glistening in sweat and panting. He laid on his side to face you and you did the same, smiling at him. “Ready for round 4?” You gasped as you tried catching your breath. Dean leaned in and quickly kissed your lips.

“As much as I would love that, Sam’s coming back soon.” He sighed as he stood up and grabbed both sets clothes from the floor. You slid into your clothes as quick as possible without even leaving the bed. “Plus, I don’t think you’re up for it. You look like you could fall asleep in about 30 seconds.” He chuckled laid back down and pulled you to his chest, running his hand up the back of your shirt to trace the scar on your back.

Distant (Liam Dunbar)

a/n - so i got quite a few requests to make a part two, so i did! i hope you enjoy this part cuz i think i got a bit carried away. <333 

part one: (x) // part three: (x)

The wind was blowing at your hair, you hugged your books tightly as you continued to walk. 

You just finished reading and studying at the library, a place that could cool off your mind, a place where you could distract yourself from whatever problems you were having. 

You tend to run away from your problems and only facing them when most necessary. 

So, you were at the library, trying to clear your mind off Liam. It worked except for those times where you drifted off. 

You didn’t even realise how late it was until your mum texted you, asking you if you have already eaten dinner. 

Oh shit, you thought. You hurriedly packed your things, waved goodbye to the librarian and left the library.

You got some takeout for your dinner and now, on a very windy night, you were walking home alone. 

Now, you were wearing your headphones and blasting Fall Out Boy. And what happens when you wear headphones and blast music at the maximum volume? 

You don’t pay attention to your surroundings. You don’t stay alert. You indulge yourself in the song, you concentrate on the song, not your surroundings. 

You stopped at the middle of the road to change the song and while you were doing that, someone pushed you, making you drop your headphones and your ipod. 

You opened your mouth to protest, to shout at the random stranger that pushed you. 

Looking up, you saw fangs, you saw golden eyes, you didn’t see a human. 

You saw a werewolf. 

You let out a surprised sound and grabbed your ipod and headphones and started to run. 

You were shocked, and even worse, you were scared. You thought that these kind of creatures only existed in movies and stories. 

You didn’t want to die tonight, at least not like this. 

You ran, ran for your life. But thanks to your non healthy lifestyle and your constant diet of junk food, the creature caught up to you. 

He took you by the throat and started to strangle you, taking the oxygen out of your lungs. 

You struggled to get away, but you couldn’t. You clawed at the werewolf, trying to get away. 

“Don’t have your werewolf boyfriend to protect you now, eh?” he/it gruffed. 

“What? Werewolf boyfriend?" 

Yes, you were dying but you were still thinking about that werewolf from Twilight. Yikes, better get your priorities straight. 

Suddenly, the grip on your throat was gone, and you breathed in the glorious oxygen. 

Apparently, someone pulled him away from you. And the only thing that could do that, well, is a werewolf. 

And that werewolf -despite the fangs and all- was Liam. When that realisation hit you, your eyes widened. 

So that’s what he meant by werewolf boyfriend. 

The two werewolves were fighting each other, they were clawing at each other.

"What the hell are you doing to my girlfriend?” Liam growled. 

“I wasn’t actually going to kill her, I did that to spite you,” the other one laughed. 

So they know each other, what a small little world. 

“Go fuck yourself, Brett, if you wanted to get back at me, that isn’t the way. Now, fuck off." 

They were back to their human form. 

The other one left without another word, and Liam approached you cautiously. 

You cringed, remembering the way he attacked him, the murderous look in his eyes; you felt frightened. 

So this was his dirty little secret. 

"Please don’t hurt me,” you pleaded, silent tears running down your cheek. 

“I won’t, I swear, it’s me,” he touched your cheek lightly. 

“I’m sorry,” you stood up, and started to run. 

It happened again, you running. 

But this time, you were afraid. You were afraid of Liam.
