depending on my mood and how this plays out i might not keep it

what they don’t always tell you about T within informed consent sheets, a better post

since the one going around is filled with blatant misinformation and exaggerated tales of horror to the point that i question whether its intent was good.

the first thing to expect, is that your experience will be unique. there are hundreds of factors to how hormones change your body, and while you will find people with experiences like yours, you will have a different experience. so while this is a general guideline, your experience may be that you don’t experience these things, or that you experience them with intensity. it’s so, so varied. 99% of the stuff they put on informed consent forms is prefaced with ‘YOU MIGHT -’. 

  1. regarding the smells, yes! you will smell different! that is a fact. the hormones are different in your body now, you will start to smell more like what you’d expect from people who have similar amounts of testosterone in their bodies. it can be a little weird, but it’s nothing that deodorant (and sometimes cologne, if you want!) won’t cover up and it’s nothing that’s abnormal and it’s nothing that every other human being doesn’t experience. everyone smells! you just happen to smell different than you used to.
  2. when facial hair grows, when hair everywhere else grows, you can get itchy. my face gets itchy, my head gets itchy, especially when it’s hot it can get frustrating, but it’s no cause for panic. some people might get itchier than others, but it’s just something you’ll deal with and it’s not all that bad. you’ll get used to it and think about it less and less as your body situates.
  3. binding, as with any thing you put on your chest, can cause acne! i’ve seen no difference in wearing sport bras and binders in regards to acne, i’m a DD chest, it’s just what happens when you sweat and compress your chest. having some acne between your boobs is normal, having some on your back is normal, just try to leave it alone and take showers (you can take showers without washing your hair every day if that’s an option!), it’ll be okay.
  4. as with, well, puberty, you’re going to have ups and downs of hunger. sometimes i can just never stop eating! sometimes i don’t feel hungry at all. it’s good to keep track of how much you eat generally and try not to overeat, but you might get cravings for more carb-heavy foods because puberty 2 takes a lot of energy for your body! eating more than normal is, well, normal. drinking a lot of water and things like orange juice can help even this out and it will benefit you in a lot of ways (like keeping your immune system healthy).
  5. your clit will probably grow. it can be kind of jarring, but it’s something you get used to, and everyone experiences this one with a WIDE range of difference. some people only get an inch or so in growth (mine is huge now and it’s still so weird but also so cool), some people can have their clit grow to much bigger! some people can feel their boners, some people get morning wood, and you might feel it in your pants and wearing tight underwear might not be the best in that case, try wearing boxers and loose clothes around the house as much as you can, as well as not wearing your binder too much.
  6. voice drops happen so suddenly you won’t even see them coming, but once the first one happens, you can get a feel for it. usually your voice cracks for a couple weeks/months, SUDDENLY gets deeper, levels off, then cracks again, repeat. it can be sudden, and it also creeps up on you. try keeping logs of your voice, you’ll be so shocked at the difference that only a few months can make! also, people around you will notice your voice changes before you do unless you’re constantly going back on old videos. 
  7. acne is inevitable. to what degree? totally dependent on the person. genetics and health play a big role. you’ll get acne in places you haven’t before, but eventually it will level out. it’s not going to be forever, you have to keep in mind this is second puberty and puberty means random and weird shit! like unfortunate acne! it will pass. try to ignore it as much as you can. 
  8. my period stopped at 4 months in. occasionally, i still get phantom cramps. not for very long usually, but you have to remember that your body has a rhythm, and you’re interrupting that. it’s going to take a while for it to switch gears! talk to your endo/doctor if your pains are excruciating to the point of hospitalization/etc because that can be a sign that something is wrong. also, you usually do blood tests every few months to make sure the hormones are working fine. my periods when i started T ranged from no pain at all and debilitating pain, and i’m someone who previously had extremely painful periods. this gets less common over time! 
  9. try not to do any drugs/alcohol before getting your blood tests done. my endocrinologist knows that i do have weed occasionally and so far that hasn’t been a problem but i think drinking is something you should avoid with blood tests coming up for your safety so they don’t report problems that aren’t there. you’re not going to get in trouble for any of this, you just need to tell them.
  10. every person has a different T dose. i take 100 every other week because of various things: my size, my weight, how the hormones already are in my body. i know some people who are on 200, some who are on 50 weekly, it depends on what your PROFESSIONAL DOCTOR thinks is safe for you, and they WILL adjust accordingly if the need arises between both of you. taking more T than you’re prescribed with the intention of getting quicker effects will actually slow the process and make your body produce more estrogen and can hurt you. you don’t want that! 
  11. it’s not shameful to set up appointments for your shots or not be able to do them yourself, and if you do them yourself it’s okay to mess it up. believe me, i have. every injection is different, but you get a feel for it and mess up less. they would not let you do it at home if it wasn’t safe enough. just watch videos, know what you’re getting into. getting blood drawn hurts more for me than my T shots. it’s okay that sometimes it takes you forever, or no time at all. T shots are your thing and your experience and your choice on how is the most comfortable for you. most doctors prescribe different injection sites based on what they think is best, all of them work. one person doing it in their leg doesn’t negate that it also works in the ass but if you’re told to do it one way, stick to that or talk it out with your doctor to come up with an alternative! the amount of blood that comes out of the injection site is different with each one, the angle is different, and i would HEAVILY SUGGEST sitting down for a while after a shot. one of my shots, i stood up right after and after about 5 minutes of walking i noticed oil just, coming out of the site and down my leg. it was horrible. gravity is your friend and also your enemy, use it wisely. the level of pain with each shot is different too, and remember that needles are supposed to only be put in something once. if you fuck up an injection and pull out too fast or anything, switch out the needle because if you don’t, the tip is more blunt (you probably won’t be able to tell with your plain eyes) and will hurt much more than the first time. shots are weird, each one is an entirely different beast but you’ll get it down. 
  12. T can make you more emotional. REMEMBER - puberty 2! it’s not going to turn you into a raging frothing beast, but if you’re already prone to anger, already prone to frustration, it’s going to happen! i’m prone to getting claustrophobic and stressed out, and T has made that worse, but over time i’ve come to manage it and over time it evens out and i experience it less and less. with hormones comes mood shifts. it’s perfectly reasonable and it’s easier than puberty 1, since you can see it coming and can calm yourself down easier and you know what’s causing it. i get frustrated more easily sometimes, but i sit down, breathe, and know that it’s the hormones, and it makes it SO MUCH easier to deal with.
  13. your genitals in general might get drier. might be the opposite. mine is the latter. my libido is NUTS, it can be weird, but for some people it’s not like that. again, completely dependent on the person. either direction or no change at all, you can expect anything. 
  14. your immune system is weaker and your body is putting a lot of energy into these changes. be aware of that, please for the love of all that’s good wash your hands, stay clear of sick people as much as you can, and try to eat and drink healthy, generally. you might catch colds and the colds can turn worse than most, but being hygienic is the best way to prevent any of that. 
  15. if you stop T, your periods will come back. some medications can’t work with T like some birth control, and before starting any medication please check in with your doctor before to make sure that it’s safe. use your best judgment and be conscious of your health.
  16. T is not an overnight experience. changes take a long time, some longer than others, and being patient is incredibly important. don’t get frustrated at your body, it’s doing it’s best. you’ll get there, some slower and some faster than others. it’s different for everyone. but you WILL get there if you want to get there. 
Top 9 Most Fight-Able Characters in Mystic Messenger

(ranked by the likelihood of winning from least to most likely)

9. “Mary” Vanderwood, Secret Agent Murdermonster

Result: A swift and painful death

Are you shitting me? You’ll be goddamn eviscerated on the spot. Not to mention nobody will ever find your body. This is completely fucking unadvisable. DO NOT DO THIS unless you have a DEATH WISH and want to disappear from the world completely. Vanderwood is not to be messed with. They’ve killed many a worthy foe, and you will not be one of them. There’s not much else to say here. I don’t care who you are, you should not challenge Vanderwood. Say your prayers, fucker

8. Unknown/Saeran Choi, Total Edgelord

Result: Utter defeat, probably followed by torture + imprisonment

I don’t think you need me to tell you that this kid is fucking off his rocker. Let’s be real, he’s probably killed a few people, and he enjoyed every minute of it. You can bet your ass he’ll likely torture you after defeating you, too. And you know, some of you sick fucks will probably enjoy the whole damn ordeal. You’re probably the only ones who’d WANT to fight him just to have him fucking step on you. Well congratu-fucking-lations, you got what you wanted. He still beats your ass. The only reason Vanderwood beats him in this ranking is because it’s possible he’d keep you alive for fun, and some of you would enjoy that, so at least it’s a fuckin victory for somebody. Fuck.

7. Jaehee Kang, Smarter than the CEO

Result: Total annihilation + jail time

Do you see this face? This is the face of someone who has been repressing violent urges for fucking years for the sake of keeping her job. If she could snap Jumin’s neck, she would in a heartbeat. You do not want to give her a justifiable reason to unleash that utter fucking rage on your sorry ass. Did you forget she has a black belt in judo? She could beat my ass. She could beat your ass. She could beat anyone’s ass. I don’t care WHO you think you are. And after the fight? She’ll report you to the proper authorities, pick up a cup of coffee, and finish her daily tasks like nothing fucking happened. What a wild bitch. I fucking love her to death, tbh. And you know what? How dare you challenge her. She deals with enough shit in her life. I hope she beats your ass with a righteous fucking fury. Have fun in jail, dipshit.

6. God 707, Meme Lord Supreme

Result: Depends on your approach, but probably a failure

Honestly Seven’s about as fucking predictable as a lunch box full of wasps. What am I even supposed to say here? He’d probably imitate that shitty ass vine meme the first time you punch him and say “I can’t believe you’ve done this”, complete with a British accent, but when you keep hitting, it’ll confuse him. The element of surprise is probably your best bet, but you also have no fucking clue what he’ll do. He might beat the shit out of you. He might scamper away on his scrawny ass legs and proceed to hack into everything you once loved or held dear. He might lay down on the ground and let you kick the shit out of him. In the end, it depends on his mood. Is that reliable at all? Absolutely fucking not. So go for it, but I literally have no idea how it’s gonna turn out for you.

5. Zen/Hyun Ryu, A God Among Men

Result: You have a good chance of winning, but at what cost?

OK BEFORE YOU LOSE YOUR MIND LISTEN THE FUCK UP. Why is Zen higher up on the list, Nani??? you ask me, pouting, clutching your Zen body pillow(s) in agony. Zen had a bad past!! He’s not easy to fight, he was such a bad boy!! v//w//v He’s so tough and strong and he’s our knight in shining armor! Hey!! Good for you! But GUESS FUCKING WHAT!! If you’re female, he’ll probably forfeit to you immediately, unlike the barbarians before him on this list, so technically he’s easier to fight! He’d probably LET you beat the shit out of him if it made you feel better. It’s not even a fucking question of who would win if a woman challenged him, so we’re gonna move on.
Now, if you’re a GUY, he’d be more willing to square up, and my advice is go for his face. Pretty boy doesn’t like messing up his pretty mug, and if you play dirty, he’ll get scared real quick. His ponytail is a disadvantage for him, so yank it real hard. You have a better chance of beating him with perseverance, but if you let him get the upper hand, you’re deceased because he’s probably a heavy hitter. Also, you will incur the wrath of all his fangirls, and probably the angels above, and you will spend the rest of your life MISERABLE AND CURSED, so proceed with caution. If you can get away with it without anyone knowing your identity, you’re golden. Good luck, but also, why? do you even want to??

4. Jumin Han, Mistah Trussfund Kid (The CEO)

Result: Instant win, but your life will be RUINED

Honestly, I think certain RFA members would actually be very glad if someone handed Jumin’s ass to him, but good fucking luck accomplishing that without having your entire life destroyed. On a purely physical level, Jumin is no competition. He may be the tallest motherfucker around, but he’s never fought anyone before in his LIFE. You’d probably only have an issue here if you were short as shit, and even then, go for the knees, amirite? He’ll fall like a fucking oak tree, and then you can rip him a new one while he’s down. Easy peasy, right? WRONG. He’s got a horde of like 50 bodyguards that you have to sneak past or defeat first or something. And if you somehow make it to Jumin first, they’ll swarm your ass after you first start swinging and have you incapacitated in a few seconds. Are those first few swings worth it? Maybe. But he’s gonna sue your ass for everything you own. The whole world will know your name. If you don’t get jail time, you’ll wish you had. It will be an easier life than trying to live in the public. Zen and Jaehee might love you forever, though, so maybe they can pull a few favors for ya. You better pray they do. Good fuckin luck out there, champ.

3. Yoosung Kim, Small Child

Result: Victory, but with a catch

Look into this child’s eyes. Look me in the eyes. Tell me that Yoosung isn’t a fucking pansy. You can’t, can you? It’s because Yoosung is a fucking pansy. This kid would be down for the count after exactly one (1) punch. He might enjoy it a little too, which’ll be awkward as shit for both of you. HOWEVER. If you trigger his Yandere side, which is bullshit but whatever, he might put up more of a fight. How do you do this, you may ask? Insult Rika. or MC. (Probably Rika tho). Something inside him will snap, and then he’ll be trickier to handle. He’ll probably play dirty when he’s like this, so expect to get shanked or bitten or something. It doesn’t change the fact that his scrawny ass can’t fight for shit, so you’ll still probably win, but not without a few injuries yourself. Hurting Yoosung is probably the moral equivalent to kicking a puppy. If you can be ok with yourself after that, then I mean, go for it.

2. Rika, the Antichrist

Result: Certain victory, but extremely dangerous

Look, maybe I should’ve put her lower on the list considering she’s got an entire cult following her every order. But, honest to God, you would be morally obligated to fight her. Please beat the shit out of her. Physically, her scrawny ass could do nothing to stop you. She’s ruined the lives of her friends, as well as countless other people, because of her deranged and, quite frankly, selfish desires. Basically, she’s a little bitch. I don’t know how you’ll do it, but god damn, you’ll be everyone’s hero. The downside to this is that she might sick Saeran on you, which is gonna be a pain in your ass, and Yoosung might hate you forever, but I think you can live with that, right? Do us all a favor. Fight Rika.

1. Jihyun Kim/V, aka Flower Angel Sunshine Man

Result: Total Victory, but you’re basically Satan

BEFORE YOU SEND ME ANON HATE, REMEMBER: this is a list based on how likely you are to win. And V? V would let anyone beat him. He probably thinks he deserves it. He might defend himself a little, but he couldn’t bring himself to hurt you. Your victory would be almost immediate. There is no catch to V. You’d just win. But you’re a fucking monster for it. And you know what? I’ll beat the shit out of you if you hurt this man. So don’t even think about it, asshole.

anonymous asked:

how do you draw tears?

Hi, Anon! I’ll do my best to walk you through my thought process. 

(This post got kinda long, so if you’re not up for reading, here are kawacy’s process breakdown and JaneMere’s Water Drops Tutorial o/)

Tears as seen in real life are…pretty uninteresting, tbh so to make them look more feel-inducing than reality, it helps to exaggerate, especially when it comes to size and contrast

Here are some things I consider when sketching:

I like to keep it to two trickles per eye flowing from the corners to, but by no means is that a rule. To give tears a sense of weight, I draw them as thin streams that gather into large droplets depending on where gravity is taking them. 

You might want to push the size even further so that they’re more visible at a distance. Context and mood is also an important thing to consider; as a general guideline, thinner lines imply delicacy while gushing waterfalls are usually more comical. Feel free to let anime/cartoons/comics (etc etc) be your guide, since they can go really heavy on the exaggeration for a wider range of expression. Have some Mako Mankanshoku tears from Kill la Kill as an example!

Awww :’D
I mean
Awww D’: 

Anyways, once I have my sketch down, I go ahead and block them out. I’m using a white tinted with blue for color contrast from the warm colors of the skin, but it doesn’t matter that much if you lower the opacity as much as I have. In any case, I don’t want to use my whitest white yet since I’m saving that for shiny highlights.

I then duplicate my block-in, darken the layer, then erase from inside the shapes I made. This is my “line art” of sorts.

Time to shade! Since tears are essentially water, I treat them like gemstones/translucent objects. Similar to shiny materials like metal, there’s a high-contrast transition between light and shadow in both edges and value, but with transparent objects, light passes through them, bounces around, and “gathers” on the side opposite of the surface that’s receiving the light, like so: 

Not the most amazing rendering in the world, but I hope it gets my point across x’D

Moving on!

To compensate the loss of detail from zooming out, I use black to amp up the contrast (doubly important since I’m using a pale-skinned person in my example). If that’s too harsh for you, feel free to play around with colors and opacity. (Again with the whole emotional context thing. Adapt to the situation!) You can even use a soft brush or put the shading through a blur filter, but I usually choose to keep the edges hard because again, contrast.

Now for the fun part: highlights! Shine bright like a diamond : DDD

Amping up the contrast some more by breaking out the whites! I suppose you could stop here, but this still isn’t shiny enough for me yet, >:3c

I go over the edges of the tears with white to punctuate how ridiculously shiny they are. I also like to throw in some bright reds/oranges reflecting off the droplets to imply healthy, glowing skin as well as a dash of a cooler color for general environmental lighting. I also added some cast shadows to the tears. Not terribly dark, since light passes through the tears as opposed to being blocked out.

Again, while I am basing my decisions off real-life principles, a lot of these choices are highly stylistic. Whether you’re drawing small, have time constraints or you’re just plain lazy, you can always pick and choose! This is just my current approach, so while you’re free to try out my workflow if you literally have no idea what you’re doing, I do encourage you to experiment to see what appeals you personally.

Hope this helps! Honestly, I’m quite flattered that anyone would ask me how I draw things :’D
If anyone does end up using this guide, poke me and show me what you’ve come up with; I’d love to see :D

little indicators that the signs might like you!

check sun/venus

aries: if an aries likes you, you’ll probably know. they’ll want to impress you and get to know you and they don’t want to waste their time with games or buildup. if the aries is shy, it may be less obvious but you can look for differences between the way they act with others and the way they act with you. they’ll probably put extra effort into their conversations with you. if you don’t quite know each other too comfortably yet, pay attention to eye contact and glances.

taurus: if a taurus likes you, it may be difficult to tell. they’re likely to fear rejection or have a hard time approaching someone they’re interested in. they’d rather be introduced by mutual friends or meet in a group. if they do approach you, they’ll probably ask you a casual question or make a quick statement. they’ll probably observe you and stare at you a lot and they might try to interact with you more through social media rather than in person.

gemini: if a gemini likes you, they’ll laugh at your jokes and tell some of their own. they’ll probably try to showcase their wit and intelligence and they may use some playful banter. they will most likely initiate conversation and be really chatty. if they don’t know you well, they’ll think of some plan or excuse to talk to you; usually about a common interest or activity. they like to have an idea of what they’re going to say ahead of time.

cancer: cancers are the type of people to tell their friends about their feelings for someone, but not the actual person they like. we fear rejection quite a lot and have a difficult time approaching someone without good reason. we’ll probably give you lots of quick glances and try to make you notice us in the most subtle ways possible. i speak for myself and not other cancers when i say this, but i tend to do this weird thing… if someone i like walks by and i’m with my friends, i’ll try to be a bit louder or say something funny or interesting in hopes that they’ll hear me, but when i talk to the person one on one, i’ll be a lot more casual and talk either quickly or more quietly because i’m nervous.

leo: if a leo is already on a friendly level with you, they’re likely to flirt and talk to you a lot. they’ll probably be generous and want to get to know you more. they’ll want to impress you! if they feel that they don’t know you well enough, they may not approach you because they don’t know where you stand and how you’ll feel about them. they’ll look at you a lot and try to play up their features when they’re around you.

virgo: virgos often use their kindness and friendliness as a means of flirting. they may compliment you and try to get to know you better, but if they’re not comfortable around you, they can get a bit shy or nervous. they’ll want to talk to you a lot and they’ll admire you all the time. they’ll probably just be very nice and welcoming and it may be difficult to tell if they’re flirting or just being friendly. they’re likely to overthink the little things their crush does.

libra: with libras, it can be pretty obvious, even if they don’t mean for it to be. a lot of libras have an outgoing and flirty nature that they play up around people they find attractive. libras who are shyer, on the other hand, will probably approach you in a subtle way or hope that you initiate conversation with them first. pay attention to eye contact with this sign!

scorpio: they’ll remember small details about you and talk to you as much as possible. with scorpios, determining whether they’re interested in you or not is probably easier through actions than through their words. if they don’t know you too well, they may be shy, but they might approach you without hesitation. sometimes the way they act towards people they’re attracted to is dependent on their mood. they may be more relaxed around you and open up more than they usually would.

sagittarius: a lot of sags are sociable and they’re very friendly and nice people! but some may be shy around people they like. if a sag likes you, they mighty invite you to go somewhere or agree to going out with you without hesitation. they might be touchy and they’ll probably text you back quickly and try to keep the conversation going. they always want to learn more about you and they’ll remember little things about you.

capricorn: some capricorns may use sarcasm and wit, where others may be so subtle it hurts. it can be hard to tell with this sign. they’ll probably drop hints and smile more than usual when they’re around you. they always want to spend time with you, if possible, and they’ll talk to you about nearly anything. they may take interest in the things you seem to enjoy.

aquarius: some aquas will be really chill and subtle and just try to hang out with you, but others will be very straightforward. this sign may try to make you notice them by playing hard to get or trying to make you jealous. it can be difficult to tell with an aquarius, because in my opinion, everybody with this sign is unique and there is not one universal method of determining how they feel about you. they’ll probably speak loudly, laugh a lot and always try to be in your range of sight.

pisces: pisces are generally kind to everyone, so it may be hard to distinguish. try to look for differences in the way they treat you and the way they act around their friends. if they don’t know you too well, they’ll probably be nervous and tense. they may use their nice demeanor and humor as a way to break the ice. pay attention to how often they look at you and he way they speak with you.

GOT7 Reaction: Best Friends to Boyfriends (request)

So this post is in reference to this other reaction: GOT7 as your best friends. And… I know that I went a bit crazy with this post, but it was fun to do this reaction.


·         How he asked you out: You were over at the dorm and you and Mark were in the middle of a BFF nap session while the rest of GOT7 spoke in the kitchen talking about whether you guys were dating or not. (You weren’t but they weren’t convinced that you guys were actually still “just friends”). That’s when the brave Bambam snuck into the room, taking a picture of you snuggled into Mark’s neck with his arm around you as a piece of evidence. 

When you both woke up and went to get something to eat, they all were there. Immediately, they all punched at you and interrogated you as they revealed the incriminating photo Bambam took two hours earlier. “And you guys say you are just friends. This doesn’t look like just friends to me!” Jackson stated. 

You both exchanged a look at each other, then Mark turned to everyone, “So what if we are dating?” The rest of the members stayed quiet, not really knowing how to answer the question. “That’s what I thought” he said as they all filed out of the room.

“I just thought you guys were cute together.” Jackson pouted as he walked past the two of you. 

It was only after you two ate in his room that the topic came up between the two of you. “So… I kind agree with Jackson… We do look cute together.” You brought up “casually”. 

When you said that, he knew now was the right time to finally ask you. “Yeah, like c’mon look at us! So why don’t we just go out? I mean like everyone already things we are, plus we practically act like we are already.” he said trying to hide his nervousness. 

·         Most dates between the two of you are casual, the main point is that you guys get some time together. 

Watching a movie at the dorm = date,

Staying the night at your place = date,

Getting lunch together when you both are free = date. 

Don’t worry though, every so often the both of you would make time to schedule a more serious date. Many times, he would even surprise you by taking you to a really expensive restaurant where you have a chance to get all glammed up.

·         Tons of inside jokes between that two of you, like more than before if that is possible. Especially a lot of double meaning jokes…

·         One of the biggest reasons he is so in love with you is just because he feels he can be his normal self with you. He constantly tells you that you always make him feel like he is home.

·         Time outside is always fun for the two of you. It consists of things like volleyball, basketball, skating, playing with coco or him teaching you how to do flips.

·         Couple outfits aren’t his style. He only goes along with it when you beg him. But he does compromise by getting you guys matching necklaces/bracelet/rings, which he promises to never take off.

·         He isn’t big on PDA either. For him the most he would do in public is hold your hand or have his arm around your waist.

·         Now that you are together, you don’t secretly steal his sweaters; now you declare them as your own, only returning them so that they can smell like him again. He is completely fine with it though, he loves that you love them and he thinks you look cute wearing his sweaters.

·         When it comes to attention, you still have to fight between Jackson and Coco, nothing would ever change on that. 

·         Now, when it comes to arguing, he is a whole new Mark. Even though he is a go-with-the-flow guy… when he is mad, he is MAD. He is like a volcano that just explodes. And after his outbursts he gets into a silent treatment. He can go days without talking to you when he is in that type of mood. However, even though he gives you the silent treatment, he won’t be a complete jerk. He would still do his part around the house or give you a glass of water if you ask or assist you with something… he would just be extremely silent and not even open his mouth. On top of it all, he will take the longest time to apologize to you or admit that he was wrong.

·         You steal his phone a lot and fill it with your selfies. Many of the selfies you took, you took with him as he slept or they are selfies of you and coco. As revenge he will use your derp face selfies as his lock screen.

·         How he asked you out: You rushed over to your door at almost midnight to see who was frantically knocking in your door. You peeked out the peep hole and saw JB standing there.

“Jb, what are you doing here?” you asked as you opened the door. Immediately you were concerned when you saw him breathing heavily. “Did you run over here? Is everything okay? What happened?”

“Y/n! Hi, So um- ok- wait- I need to catch my breathe.” He took a moment, then he looked at you., “Ok….uh.” that’s when his face blushed more. “So for the last few days you have been complaining about that guy you have been seeing and I am tired of hearing it. I don’t think you should be with him.”


“I know that I said you should wait things out, but he isn’t worth it! You deserve a better guy! A guy like me… Y/n, I’ve liked you for a long time and I hate the way you let guys treat you, you deserve so much and I hate it when you give thse assholes a chance because I am be so much better for you- and I… just… I do-don’t know what I’m trying to s-say anymore.” he faded off

You could feel your face heat up. “So you like me?”


“Are you asking me out?”

“I think so.”

·         There is no way around it, at one point or another, you guys are going to adopt at least one cat together

·         Now that he and you are “practically one”, you were promoted from second in command, to “JB #2” when he isn’t around. Jinyoung may be a bit salty about it, but he will get over it. (low key you still have to look over JB too, nothing changed in that aspect)

·         Before, when you were just friends, you would always catch him making stupid face at you… but now that you guys are together you get a whole new set of looks from him 😉

·         He is a cuddle monster. He loves to use you as his personal pillow when you guys are laying down together. Most nights he can’t even fall asleep unless he is on top of you. He especially loves it when he rests on your chest and you run your fingers through his hair, Those moments are his paradise.

·         Now that you two are together, he might let himself go just a small bit. You are always making him food or you guys are always going out to try new places to eat or he uses his work out time to be with you instead. On top of it all you love his tummy, so he doesn’t feel the need to try as hard to work out like he used to.

·         He genuinely loves calling you by pet names… like embarrassing ones like: honey bunny, cupcake, cutie patootie, baby doll, honey bun, honey bunch, princess, Shnookums, etc. and you love how cheesy he is. However, he would die if the rest of GOT7 ever heard him calling you any of this. In front of them he only calls you babe or jagi. Sometimes he will try to whisper the cuter (cringier) names in your ear or whisper it through the phone, cuz he just won’t feel right if he doesn’t tell you something cute at least once. The second anyone even thinks they hear him say those cute things, he gets defensive with them and gets after them as a way to change the subject.

·         When it comes to PDA, he on the same level as the pet names. He is all for the cute stuff with you like eskimo kisses and a face full of pecks, but in public he tries to play things cool. He has to be “chic and sexy” as Jackson always says.

·         Because he has so much on his plate on, being in charge of six other guys and all, he is prone to forgetting dates like you birthday or anniversary, or his birthday, his mom’s birthday… just everyone’s important dates. Part of your job as his “wonderful, loving other half” is to constantly remind him of things not Got7 related that are coming up in his life. Of course you don’t mind, anything to get less stress of him.

·         When he does forget your anniversary or birthday, he feels so guilty. To make up for it, he will schedule time that is meant just for the two of you to go out on a nice date, anywhere you want to go and anything you want to do.

·         Going back to the whole stress thing… when he gets stressed, he gets frustrated… and when he get frustrated he gets snappy at anyone and everyone. When you were only besties, his little outbursts were kinda funny, but now they aren’t because they are sometimes directed at you. It wasn’t something you liked, so it was something he constantly tried to work on. Sometimes he catches himself and other times he doesn’t.

·         He holds grudges. “OH SO I CAN’T SNAP AT YOU WHEN I AM FRUSTRATED, BUT YOU CAN LASH OUT ON ME JUST CUZ YOU HAD A BAD DAY!” This guy keeps score of everything and knows what to throw back in your face. He will be like Mark in that, after an argument he will go into silent mode and go days without talking. Unlike Mark though, he might not even acknowledge you when he is giving you a silent treatment, depending on the severity of the fight.

·         At the end of the day, he is just a passionate guy and he puts so much of himself in whatever mood he is in. No matter how much he gets mad, that won’t take away from the fact that he loves you too much to ever risk losing you.  

·         When it comes to couples outfits… All I have to say is that you have to come up with looks that work with bucket hats

·         How he asked you out: It was in the middle of your famous Harry Potter marathons that he decided to ask you out. He liked you for a long time and he always wanted to ask you, but he was always scared of ruining things with you. But it was on that day where things just felt so perfect. It was just you and him at your place and you were just watching the movie all comfortable and cute, resting your feet on his, every so often throwing popcorn at him to playfully annoy him and give him that beautiful smile of yours. That was when, he was willing to risk asking you out if it meant there was a possibility of having more moments like this. That was when he said “Y/n, you know you are a lot like Ron and I am a lot like Hermione.” 

You had confused his comment as an insult and threw a pillow at him, “Are you calling me dumb?”. 

He just laughed and said, “No! What I was trying to say is that we are meant to be!”

·         He is more of a romantic compared to many other guys. He is really cute in the sense that he would write you little love poems and leave around little notes for you to find. Not to forget he would quote romantic lines from some books the two of you love.

·         He loves days where the both of you get to sleep in. They are rare so the both of you take advantage and make an event of it with a big breakfast where both of you cook together.

·         For sure he is the type to take part in couple outfits. But more so the sophisticated looks, the whole coffee shop aesthetic. Don’t get me wrong, he would still be big on matching pajamas to wear around the house.

·         Just because you guys are a couple now doesn’t mean he will completely stop being savage with you. Any time you make a dorky comment or get too annoying with the others, he would just stare at you and shake his head. He would probably also mumble “Why am I dating you?” under his breath, but on the inside, he finds everything you do to be cute and added to what he loved about you.

·         In the relationship, he is the one that would for sure remember your anniversary and your birthday and another other important dates or events that revolve around you (and he would love to brag about it and guilt trip you the few times you would forget).

·         He is the type to not want to talk about work at home. Just thinking about his schedule is tiring, so he hates talking about it when you ask. It is part of his policy to “not bring work home”, so when he is with you he just wants to relish in the normalcy.

·         You both still stick to coffee dates and going out and having fun and all, but when it is just the two of you at home, those are his favorite moments. He loves it when you two are sprawled on the couch watching movies or reading and you are just playing with his hair.

·         When around the other members or out in public, he isn’t one for PDA. Holding hand would be the biggest sign of affection when out and about.

·         He is the type of boyfriend that always denied being the jealous type, but it was obvious he was. You would notice it when you hugged a guy friend “too long” or something and he would have a mini silent treatment or he would be a bit sassier than normal… maybe even say a passive aggressive comment here or there.

·         When it comes to arguments, he would be the more leveled headed one, but when he was too fumed, his words can hurt. He knows exactly what to say to press your buttons. But, when he knew he was in the wrong or that he took things too far, he would be quick to apologize to you and try to make up for it.

·         How he asked you out: For weeks you had been bugging him to tell you about his girl he had a crush on. He was the type to tell you everything, but he refused to tell you about this, mysterious girl. “Jackson, I am your best friend, and as your best friend, I have to know who you like. I have to approve of them.” to be honest, you were just jealous that he never seems to stop talking about that girl, you just wanted to finally know what the hype was about. You really liked Jackson, but as his friend you wanted him happy.

“Ok fine… I’ll show you who she is.” He smirked. “But that means you have to come with me to the gym. She is there every so often and I know she is going to be there today. In the evening is the time I always see here there.”

“Really? I’ve gone with you at those times, have I seen her before?”

He didn’t answer, he just forced you to your gym clothes and dragged you to the gym you had been to only a few times before. Immediately you looked out for every girl there, but each one you pointed out, he only said no. 

“Jackson, you made me do a whole workout with you, but you never even told me who this girl is! I thought you said shewas going to be here. I want to know.’ you whined. 

That’s when he guided you over to the mirrors where the light weights are. This is where many of the girls hung out, so she had to be there! “She is right here! “ he said even thought there was no one else there. 

“Where? Why are are you making me look at myself?” You  asked as he place you in front of the mirror.

“Cuz, the girl I like is you.” 

·         Jackson encourages a healthy lifestyle together. “We have to eat organic!” “Monday can be our cheat day.” “A couple that works out together stays together.”

·         You always ask him if he loves you as much/more than his mom and every time he avoids giving an answer. “Oh hey it’s time for practice I have to go!” 

“Jackson you just got back” 

“Love you bye!”

·         Since he doesn’t always have a lot of free time in his schedule, he does the best he can to be with you or at least talk to you. He always texts/calls you when he is free, and when he is away on tour he makes it a point to video chat you.

·         He always fantasizes about your future together. He was the first to bring up marriage and how many kids you would have.

·         He was also the one to say “I love you first”. He said it within a week of you two dating

·         Gets jealous over the smallest things “Why did you hug Jinyoung before me?!?” 

“Babe, I saw him first cuz he opened the door and let me in.” 

“I knew it, you love him more than me!”

·         This guy would never ever not touch you. No matter what, he has to be touching you in one way or another. Holding you, holding your hand, playing with your hair. Even when just standing next to each other, his elbow has to at least touch yours. Therefore, when it comes to PDA, he does not shy away from it.

·     He likes to spoil you. Part of it is an attempt to make up for the fact he is gone a lot, but it is mostly because he feels you deserve so much and he wants to be the one to provide for you.

·         He is a bit more needy than when you two were just friends. He goes to you when he is stressed with everything or when the online hate is too much.

·         He takes you to Hong Kong so that you could meet his parents. No matter how much he loves you, he wants to make sure his parents approve of you

·         There are many times where the two of you get into arguments over his schedule. You feel he is working too hard and he feels he isn’t working hard enough.

·         Arguments in general are never fun, and it doesn’t help that he is pretty stubborn. However after a while is he willing to budge and see things from your point of view then you both are able to sort things out

·         Actively plans out couple outfits with you. He even suggests you take turns being “in charge” of the outfits. “Babe, last week you chose out look, this week I get to choose!”

·         How he asked you out: The two of you were walking in the park to take Coco out for a walk. It was a nice day out. There was a cool breeze in the air and there was almost no one else in the park, allowing you and Youngjae act as yourselves. 

“Thanks for letting me use your sweater Youngaje.” You felt your face geting warmer as you tugged played the sleeves.

“You’re welcome.” he smiled.

“Coco looks really cute in that little sweater you bought her…”

“And you look really cute in my sweater.” he said ever so softly



“No I heard you say something!”

“I didn’t say anything!”

“You did! I heard you!”

You saw his face turning red. “Nuh-uh!”

“Stop lying! You said something! I know you Youngjae. You might as well tell me now, before I go through desperate means to find out!” you threatened.

“Fine… but if I tell you… You have to go on a date with me.”

·         He has you under “Coco’s step mom <3” in his contacts. Aside from that, he only ever calls you love, honey, babe, darling, baby, jagi… any cute pet name in the book, he will call you that. On top of that, he almost always has a sunshine smile on his face when he calls out to you.

·         It melts his heart when you call him by pet names also.

·         Don’t get me wrong though, he may be a cute boyfriend, but he is not as innocent as he seems so 😉

·         He loves playing video games with you, even taking the time to teach you how to play a game with him if you don’t know how.

·         His phone is filled with pictures of you. A lot of them he took without you knowing. You are even his phone lock screen and home screen.

·         He isn’t big on PDA, but he doesn’t hate it. So there is a lot of hand holding and holding you by your waist, and a bit of back hugs or small pecks on the cheek.

·         He loves it when you are the big spoon when you both are cuddling.

·         He hates to admit it, but he is low-key excited whenever you bring up the idea of couple outfits. He is subtle in how he suggests that you guys go as far as wearing certain hats or shoes.

·         Sometimes he gets you little gifts for no reason. He will just be out doing his thing and he will see something that reminds him of you and he just has to buy it so that he can give it to you. Many times these types of gifts are little plushies. “They are so cute just like you baby!”

·         He serenades you with loves songs. He just wants to make you feel special and in what better way than through song!  

·         You are his muse to his solo songs… well you were his muse when you both were just friends but now it isn’t a secret that the songs are about you.

·         Compared to the other members, he is not the type to get that mad. Sure he is will get upset, but he rarely raises his voice. He isn’t one to stay mad for long either. Unless it is something serious, his emotions will die down throughout the day and by night time the both of you go to bed as if you never fought in the first place.

·         How he asked you out: You let him in as you finished getting ready to g out with him to the movies for your secret  late night hang outs. “Hey Bestie!” he said as he walked in.

Bestie. That was what he kept referring to you as ever since Yugyeom accused the two of you of dating when he found the two of you cuddling on the couch. You hated it because you hated to be reminded that he only saw you as a friend.

“Hi to you too bestie” you forced yourself to say.

“You’re looking hot tonight.” he smirked

“Well, I gotta match my style to yours.” you winked playfully.

“You don’t have to try that hard to do that… But then again some times you do have to try hard. Liked the other day when you were a complete zombie.”

“Hey! I was sick! You’re so mean. I thought you were my bestie.”

“Well. I am… But I don;t want to anymore.” he said more seriously.

Your face fell. “What?”

“He smiled at you. “Yeah, can’t we change that whole “bestie” title to “best boyfriend” or something? That just rolls off the tongue better.”

·         It doesn’t matter that you guy have been dating for a month, six months, or a year, no matter how long you guys have been together he is still going to flirt with you.

·         Dirty jokes back and forth between the two of you that end up annoying everyone else.

·         And just because you guys are dating, it doesn’t make Yugyeom any less of his “best-er friend”. That is right, you will still have to fight for your boyfriend’s attention when Yugyeom is around.

·         Still keep strong to the tradition of late night video chats, but now that you guys are dating, they usually end up 19+…

·         On that note, he still spams you with selfies… and “selfies”.

·         You are his second hype man for everything he does. 

Him: *flips water bottle* *shrugs as if he didn’t put 110% of his effort into it* 

You: *dabs behind him*

·         For sure he is going to bring you along to Thailand whenever he gets to go. He was you around his family and he want to take you around where he grew up. He wants you to love it as much as he does.

·         This boi got to be at the top of the trending game, so know that you guys are dating you have to be as cool as him. He still makes you learn new memes or dances with him, but this time he makes sure you get them as perfect as he does.

·         He is so into the idea of couple outfits.  But you guys aren’t basic, far from that. When it comes to outfits you guys gotta be fab, nothing less that model level looks.

·         When it comes to you, “Nothing but the best for my queen” (yes, that means you have to refer to him as your king).

·         This boy loves to spoil you. He will get you the best of everything. Top brand clothes, shoes, make up, skin care, almost everything no matter how much you insist that he doesn’t have to. But just because he is so generous with you, doesn’t mean he gets anything for his members. He still “forgets” his wallet every so often when they are all out eating.

·         He is not afraid of PDA, especially around GOT7 because he loves to show everyone that you are his.

·         When it comes to arguments, he doesn’t really get too upset. He isn’t one to take a lot of things seriously so if anything, you are the one that gets more upset between the two of you… and sometimes his lack of seriousness is what makes you upset. But sometimes it takes a bit of “conversation” to get things straightened out between the two of you and things so back together smoothly.

·        How he asked you out: You awkwardly woke up after a sleep over with Yugyeom to find a sheet of paper taped over your whole face. 

“ What the-” you grumbled as you took it off. On the paper it as the last thing you ever expected to read. It was a note from Yugyeom saying “Hey Y/n, I know this is weird… I didn’t really know how to say this in person, but it is something that I’ve wanted you to know for a while. I really like you… like more than a friend. I don’t know if you feel the same way, but if you do, please meet me by our favorite spot by the river at 10 pm tonight, the spot where we first met. If you don’t go I’ll take it as sign you don’t feel the same for me, which is completely fine by me. I just wanted to let you know how I really felt.” 

Instantly you broke out into a smile. You were so happy that he liked you back You had liked him for months now and you felt like you were on top of the world, but part of you was wondering if this was actually real. You tried to call and text him, but he never replied. That whole day you were in a daze as you mentally prepared yourself to meet up at the river. 

When the time actually came by, you were running late. At 10:15 you ran off the bus and sprinted to the exact spot he was talking about. Within a few feet from the spot, you caught Yugyeom slouching form with six frowning boys around him. He barely held on to a boquet of flowers as Jackson ans Youngjae walked away with what looked like a basket and blanket for a picnic. Immediately, you screamed out for him as you ran to him. He turned around, his frown quickly turned into a smile as you threw yourself on him.

·         Him teasing you is never going to end, even with you guys dating. If anything it is only going to happen way more since you guy can see each other way more.  All this teasing just evolves into a prank war between the two of you, which late has to get settled out by Jinyoung because you guys took things way too far and trashed the dorm.

·         This won’t stop the teasing though. He just loves to do it, that is one of the ways he shows you affections “If I don’t annoy you then I don’t love you” he would say as he continued to poke your cheek like he was been for the past ten minutes.

·         For sure, he is still going to drag you to the dance studio with him, this time he will get you to dance with him *cough* dirty dancing *cough*

·         He is super shy about the idea of pda. He would avoid it as much as possible. Since everyone in got7 still sees him as a baby even though he is taller than everyone, they will always coo “Aww look at little Yugyeom with his little girlfriend!” Avoiding pda means avoiding all those comments.

·         Yugyeom would be the sweetest in how he would celebrate your anniversary. He would go all out with the scavenger hunt ideas. He would have so many clues for you to follow and lead you all over the city only to end up in the spot where you both has your first date.

·         He is different when it comes to arguments, at least for the first few months or so. Most of the time he is quick to assume that he is at fault and immediately apologizes and tries to fix everything. After a while and once both of you become more comfortable with each other, then that’s when he’d takes a stand for his thoughts. Thanks fully, he wouldn’t be the type to shut you out and he would listen to your side of everything and you both go from·

·         Unlike before, he wouldn’t ditch you for Bambam. Now that you both were dating, he rarely ever wanted to leave your side. He is just a giant cuddle bug.

·         His phone is filled with pictures of the two of you (mostly of derp faces).

·         He is cool with couples outfits. He just lets you choose what you both get to wear he doesn’t care what the clothes are all that matters is that is it something you both do together.

Escape: the Bree years

She opened up the cloth bound journal.  The journal that she had picked up from the stationary store on her walk the day after her lunch with Jenny. 

A gratitude journal.

Jenny had suggested she write just five things a day for which she was thankful.  The only stipulation was that she had to write one thing about Jamie. In the beginning it had been difficult, but after a while, she was able to see all the things he did do for her around the house, all the attentions he paid her. They were small, but nonetheless, they were there.  

One entry mentioned the dinner he had brought home unexpectedly.  Another noted the three loads of laundry he did one Sunday while she napped with the baby.  Today she would write down how Jamie had held her after dinner.  There was no particular reason.  He had come up behind her, turned her in his arms, and held her, swaying slightly.  

It was helping.  Claire felt less like a maid, and more like a partner.  She felt less jealous, and more supported.  

Claire was falling in love with her husband all over again.

Now she needed to work on the next part of her plan.

Jamie trudged through the door on a Friday afternoon, exhausted.  All he wanted was dinner, some time with his family, a cold beer and a rugby match on the telly. He dropped his backpack by the front door, then thought better of it.  He knew clutter seemed to bother Claire now, so he picked it up and took it down the hall to his office.  

Heading back into the kitchen he skidded to a stop.

“Jesus. God, Claire.”

Her jeans were skin tight.  Her black top, form fitting.  Jamie was an ass man, but her figure these days was downright sinful.  Because she was nursing her breasts were nothing short of spectacular.  For the first time in a long time her hair was down, the soft curls bouncing around her face, shiny and thick.  

She took his breath away.

“Hi!  How was your day?”  She came toward him, smile bright, while Bree kicked her little legs in anticipation of seeing her Da.  

He was helpless at the sight of her moving towards him, hips subtly swaying. “Wow, Sassenach. You look gorgeous.”

Claire’s steps faltered just a little with surprise, and she felt her face get red. She giggled, eyes downcast, lifting Bree up to him.  Except he didn’t take her. He was still mesmerized by his wife, and instead of taking the baby he ran his fingers up her throat, and gently forced her chin up with his thumbs toward his waiting mouth. He inhaled deeply as he kissed her.  

“We have a babysitter coming,” Claire whispered against his lips.  

“What? When? Who is it?”  Jamie snapped to attention and finally took hold of his daughter.  

“Any minute.”  Claire spun around towards the kitchen.  His groin reacted at the sight of how those jeans hugged her arse.  “And it’s your sister.”

“Jenny?  Really?  Why?”  Jamie was genuinely confused.  

“We’re going on a date, Fraser.”  And with that, the buzzer sounded.  

“I want to talk to you about something.” They’d had a nice meal with relaxed conversation.  It was time.  Claire’s hands were clasped tight in her lap. 

Jamie could not believe the change in Claire.  Slowly, over a matter of weeks his wife had seemed to come back to him.  She seemed less tense, more willing to accept help, and more affectionate.  Dinner was at her favourite little Italian restaurant close to their house.  They had walked there on this crisp, clear night with the moon a giant ball of shimmering light.  They walked close together, just as they had in the early days of dating and marriage with her hand slipped into his back pocket, and his long arm draped around her shoulders.  The idea of a night out alone with his wife was enough to give him a second wind and banish the thought that Bree was too young for a babysitter.  

“Something wrong, mo neighean donn?”

“No. Nothing’s wrong.  It’s just….I want to go back to work.”  Claire rushed through the next part of her prepared speech.  “I know it’s sooner than I need to, and I know it’s sooner than you hoped, but when Bree is six months old, I want to go back at least two days a week.  I want to talk to Dr. Gowan and see if that’s a possibility.  I think it would be good for me.”

Jamie took a sip of his wine.  He didn’t want to think about this yet.  “Ye seem in better spirits lately, Claire.  Is this why?  Because yer thinking of going to work?”

Before, Claire would have been angry at his response.  Now, she tried to take his comment in the spirit for which she hoped it was intended.   Claire knew she didn’t have a hidden agenda, and that Jamie was dreading this moment.  “No. I’ve been really trying.  The walks help.”

“Walks?” Jamie leaned forward, elbows on the table, so he could look her fully in the face. “When do ye walk?”

Claire laughed.  “I walk every morning, Jamie.  With Bree.”  She didn’t understand his surprise.  If Alec knew, Jamie must know.

“Where do ye walk?” Jamie was pleasantly surprised by this information. Clearly that’s how she had gotten her figure back so soon.

“We have our favourites.  The Museum.  The Castle.  The Library.”

“What?”  Jamie reared back against his chair.  “Christ, Claire, some of those are 15 kilometers round trip!  With Bree?”

“No, Jamie, I leave Bree at home to do the washing up.”  She rolled her eyes.  “Of course with Bree! Sometimes I get on the tram for a bit, then walk.  Depends on my mood, and the weather.”

Jamie was stunned.  How did he not know this?  “What about her feedings? And her naps?”  

“Some days I take the pram.  Some days I wear the baby carrier.  And she naps just fine.  As for feeding her, it’s still very portable.”  Claire gestured to her breasts.  Jamie glanced down and subconsciously licked his lips. 

“I stop in some familiar spots.  One of them is a great little bistro on the other side of Dean’s Village near the Gallery.  The people know us there.”  Claire sat back in her chair, mildly annoyed but trying to keep her anxiety at bay.  

“Come on, Jamie.  Are you telling me you didn’t send Alec out to keep watch? Because he knows about my walks.”

“He DOES?” Jamie sat bolt upright while his voice rose in shock and indignation. Claire leaned forward and laid a hand on his arm, shushing him.

“Are you seriously angry, Jamie?  Because you can see Bree is growing well, and she’s fine.  And I can’t tell you how much it’s helped me.”

Jamie took a deep breath.  This was not the point of this conversation.  She had asked him about work, so he tried his best to refocus.  I’ll be havin’ a long conversation with Alec in the mornin’ however. 

“No.  Not angry, Sassenach.  Just embarrassed at how much I’ve no’ paid attention to what ye do all day.  I’m sorry for that,” he offered.

Claire smiled.  And there it was.  The entry for her gratitude journal tonight. 

“Talk to Dr. Gowan, Claire.  See what he says first.  Then, when we ken what yer schedule might be we’ll talk about the next step.”  He reached over, and pushed a tendril of hair behind her ear.  “I dinna mean to ruin anything.  I’m havin’ the grandest time tonight, mo ghraidh.”

“Good, because we’re off to Deacon Brodie’s.”

Jamie laughed and picked up his glass to drain it.  “Snooker?”  He leaned in close, his lips almost touching hers. Claire closed her eyes in anticipation of his kiss.  Instead she heard him whisper, “I’ll mop the floor with ye.”

Jamie turned away for about the dozenth time that night and tried to readjust his jeans to get comfortable.  Claire wasn’t the best at pool but the woman wasn’t bad either.  She kept telling him it was really just Geometry, and that she was good at math.  Of course, when he was young and single he had spent a lot of time in snooker halls.  He loved the game.  But how the hell was he to concentrate when she would bend over the table and that perfectly round arse would rest there in front of him?  

Ifrinn, the fantasies she aroused.  He’d have her right there if he could.  And the vixen knew it.  

The third time she leaned over and sunk a ball, she’d looked back over her shoulder leaving her arse right where it was.  Oh, she knew.  

So he’d moved to stand in front of her when she took her shots.  That idea was even worse because then he was privy to the way the tips of her breasts would brush the green felt when she leaned down to sight the ball.  

His body reacted like a 23 year old virgin.  

He drained his Tennent’s lager and motioned for another.  Two could play at that game.  

When she bent down again, he walked up and pressed himself against her bottom. She gasped at his hardness, the length of him revealing his arousal. Claire flinched so much that her cue hit the felt and popped the white ball up and over the edge of the table.  She stood quickly.  “Jamie,” she whispered furiously, “What in hell are you doing?”

Jamie spoke softly next to her ear, all the while pressing her against the length of himself, his arm around her waist.  “Lettin’ ye know that if you win this game it’s only because I’m thinking of later, when yer naked ow’er top of me with my tongue on yer breasts and my cock - OOF!”

Claire elbowed him in the stomach.

Jamie staggered back a step, taking deep breaths.  The look he fixed on her when he regained his breath showed no interest in any more games, sexy or otherwise.  

“That was yer shot, Lass.  Now, step away.”  

Claire watched as Jamie proceeded to run the table, sinking coloured ball, then red ball, then another coloured ball.  He moved quickly and decisively, like a big cat sighting it’s prey.  Once in a while he’d spare her a glance full of simmering heat and banked desire while he took a sip of his lager, or surveyed the table. Then, he’d set down the glass, and the run was on again.   

When he sank the last ball he put his cue in the rack, drained his glass and turned a lustful gaze on Claire.  “I’ve had enough, mo neighean donn. Get yer things.  We’re leavin’.”

Jenny was bouncing a fussy Bree when he opened the door.  “I told ye Mummy would be here soon,” she said, and kissed Bree’s chubby cheek.  The baby squealed and wriggled in her aunt’s arms at the sight of her parents.  

Jamie watched as Claire hugged Jenny and thanked her for giving them this evening together.  She took Bree and disappeared up the stairs.  Jamie helped Jenny on with her coat, then walked her down the stairs to her car, both sharing details of their evenings.

“Jenny,” Jamie said, holding the car door open for her.  “I canna thank ye enough. Tonight was the most fun we’ve had in months.  Thank ye for watching Bree. Truly.”

“Och, Brother, ye’ve watched my bairns enough time.  I’m excited to be able to return the favour.”  Jenny raised an eyebrow, “Now get inside, lad.  That child was hungry and tired.  She won’t be long to bed.”  

She paused a moment and said, “And by the looks of you and Claire, ye won’t be either.”

“Wheesht, Jenny.  Dinna embarrass me,” but his grin implied anything but embarrassment as he closed the door.

Claire met him in the corridor as he hit the top of the stairs.  Without stopping he took three strides and grabbed the waistband of her jeans.  Her hands had already been there though, popping the button and sliding down the zipper. In one smooth move he peeled off the denim, then lifted her up, one hand around her waist, the other under her thigh.  She wound her legs around his hips and tangled her hands in his hair.  

Their kisses were hot, open mouthed, and desperate.  

He moved toward the wall, oblivious to the fact they were steps from Bree’s room.  As he walked Claire stripped off her top and tossed it.  Jamie groaned at the sight before him.  A Dhia, her breasts were plump and soft, straining to be free of the bra. He lifted her higher, and bent his head, kissing the tops, tongue tracing the edge of the fabric, then dipping under to reach a nipple.

“Talk to me,” Claire breathed.  She grabbed his head tighter forcing him to look at her.  “Tell me you love me,” she whispered against his lips.

“More than my own life, Claire.” His tongue licked her upper lip before he kissed her.

“More than anyone?”  She pulled at his curls, harder now.

He paused and looked deep into her topaz eyes.  He saw lust, to be sure, and love.  He knew Claire, knew her well, and he saw insecurities as well.  What demon was she facing now?  

She bit her lip, waiting, panting, hoping he would say the right thing.  

“Are ye suggesting I’ve played ye false? Because no, mo graidh, never.”

He caught the barest flicker of her eyes towards Bree’s room.

Holy Mother of God and all the Saints before Her.  I’m throbbing for her, and she thinks…I love her less than Brianna?

Jamie pressed her back against the wall as one hand came up to cup the side of her face.  

“Nèamhan, Sassenach.  All I have comes from you.  Our marriage.  Our family. Yer my one and only.  Mo graidh.  Yer face is my heart, Sassenach, and the love of you is my soul.”  

Claire whimpered, and kissed him again, fiercely, almost violently.  

Jamie grabbed her hair and forced her head back.  “I love Bree with all my heart. But I love Bree because she has so much of you.  She has yer smile. She has that way of taking her wee fingers and stroking my neck like ye do. Like yer doin’ now.”

Claire’s fingers stilled and she breathed a small laugh in reply.

She kissed him again, his jaw, behind his ear.  She ground herself against him. “Help me.”

“Help ye what?”  God how he wanted her.  Jamie reached down and undid his belt and jeans.  He shifted Claire so that he was poised, ready to enter her.  

She moved restlessly, trying to hurry him, to get closer to him, as close as possible.  

“Help ye what, Claire?  Tell me.”  Claire groaned and twisted her head from side to side.  Jamie had never seen her like this.  

“I hate feeling jealous,” she said, between gritted teeth.  “I hate myself for it.  I want to be free of it.”    

There she’d said it.  Out loud.  For a moment she watched his eyes go wide, and then narrow like the cat’s eyes they were.  

Then he was in her.  With one solid thrust, he filled her.  Claire arched her back, and let her legs slide down to encircle his thighs.  

“Now ye listen to me, Claire Elizabeth Beauchamp,” he said, driving into her slowly and steadily, his mouth next to her ear, “Jealous, is it?  Did ye no’ see those men in the pub?  Eyein’ my wife.  My sexy…” he pushed into her, “beautiful…” then out, then in again, “strong wife.” Every word was punctuated by his body.  

His breathing was heavy, his words measured.  “Ye’ve no idea the nights I sit up watching over ye.  Yer in my dreams, asleep and waking.”  He kissed her then, his tongue finding hers in a lover’s dance.  

“I will never love anyone the way I love you.  I think of no one else when I’m with ye.”

Claire could feel the pleasure building.  His voice was raspy, and rough, cleansing her, washing away the darkness in her mind.  The sweat between them made their bodies slick.  God, he felt so good.  She risked a look and saw that his eyes were as dark as the ocean during a storm, heavy-lidded and sultry. 

His words washed over her like holy water, forgiving her sin.  

“I just want to be the Claire you fell in love with.”

Jamie ground his body into her again.  “Nay, lass.  That Claire is gone.  But this Claire.  A Dhia, this Claire is more seasoned, more fiery, more…” Speech was getting hard for him.  His body was screaming for release.  

“More of everything….GOD. CLAIRE!”

He felt her legs shake, felt her shudder around him, felt her nails bite his flesh. Felt the groan that tore from her chest.

Felt himself get lost in her.  

Later, in the wee hours before dawn he woke to her touch, as she climbed back in bed.  A light stroking on his back, tracing his scars.  Her mouth soft on his shoulder.  

“Tell me again,” she whispered.

Jamie smiled sleepily and rolled over on top of his wife, coaxing her to open her legs.  

He settled himself between her thighs.  

Leannan, I was just dreamin’ about ye….”

Okay, so I know I already made an addition to @sevi007‘s beautiful and wonderful headcanon list for Eri and Class 1-A (which you can see here, it’s lovely and my headcanons can only add so much), but I had more pertaining to the other individuals of Class 1A.

This is basically a “how the kids calm down Eri and their general relationship with her” headcanon post.

  • Tsuyu, being a natural at caring for small children because she has younger siblings, would comfort Eri whenever Izuku isn’t around to do so (or he just doesn’t know what to do, he’s an only child) and make her feel better through her calm aura and kind words
  • Kirishima is already the big brother figure of everyone in the dorms, so it’s no surprise when he takes Eri in as a little sister as if she’s always been there. He tends to make her feel better by swooping her up onto his shoulders and pretending like he’s her noble steed (he’s very careful to leave his hair down during this because he doesn’t want to poke her in the eye with his hair alone). He also is willing to neglect homework to entertain and play games with her (something his teachers and Bakugou do not appreciate, but his teachers are willing to be a little bit more lenient because Eri)
  • Swinging back to Bakugou, I’m also attaching the “Bakugou is a really good cook” headcanon onto here. Because I’m assuming due to Eri’s young age, she’s never had the chance to enjoy certain foods, Bakugou starts making specific Japanese comfort foods whenever she’s upset or can’t sleep or in a bad mood. He doesn’t really know how else to comfort a small child (or really any human, let’s be honest), but he does know that food generally works. So if he’s the only one around and she’s trying really hard not to cry or to hide her tears, he starts cooking something up and hands her the plate silently and sits nearby to make sure she’s okay. (He says it’s so that she doesn’t make noise, but the entire class knows better because her sobs are really quiet)
  • While Bakugou makes comfort food, Satou makes sweets for her. He does his best not to overload her on sugar (she is still really young), but he gives her little treats whenever she asks nicely or she’s having a bad day.
  • Kouda lets her pet his rabbit and, occasionally, they’ll go into town together to a pet shop and Eri can play with the other animals in the shop.
  • Kaminari doesn’t really know how to handle kids, but he knows how to make people laugh. So, he makes her laugh as best as he can, and if all of his other jokes and methods of comedy don’t work, he’ll short circuit his brain for the sake of making her smile.
  • Momo makes dolls and toys for Eri, especially considering she probably never had a toy of her own, and the two of them play with them to make her feel better. Sometimes, the other kids end up joining, specifically Kirishima, Izuku, Uraraka, Mina, and Tooru.
  • Izuku never really knows exactly what to do and sort of ends up becoming the designated hero character (the others quickly picked up that he was mostly just imitating All Might every time). Kirishima tends to vary between hero, sidekick, and villain, depending on the scenario. They’ve found he has a very good evil laugh that’s cheesy enough to make Eri smile.
  • Uraraka makes Eri float and they “fly” through the dorms together. She also tells great stories about the others’ accomplishments as heroes-in-training. Eri is especially attached to the ones about Deku.
  • Iida is also inexperienced with children, but he has an older brother and so he does what Tensei did to make him feel better with Eri. Namely, making funny faces and tickling her. The others find the spectacle to be a combination of weird as hell, but also adorable. (There’s lots of footage.)
  • I, personally, headcanon that Sero does have a younger sibling (just one), so in this headcanon, Sero uses the same techniques for Eri to make her feel better. He also introduces her to the idea of playing pretend with tea sets or as a princess or as a hero trying to stop a giant monster. He’s not picky.
  • Todoroki generally just keeps Eri company. He lets her cuddle up to either side of him depending on the temperature of the room and lets her talk about her problems and bad thoughts, quietly listening and keeping her close. He’s found she generally favors his left side because it’s warm and comforting. It’s taken time to get used to, but it’s a nice feeling, knowing someone finds comfort in it.
  • Aizawa doesn’t say anything, he doesn’t do much. He pretty much just goes into his sleeping bag and opens up a little pocket for Eri to climb into and they both take a nap. (There are far too many pictures of this circulating through the school).
  • Toshinori comforts Eri the same way he comforts the rest of his classmates. Letting them cry out their feelings and try to give a little bit of advice. With Eri, because she’s so young, he also tells her stories of his prime, of when he was a great hero. She continuously tells him that he’s still a hero to her.
  • Izuku is her Onii-chan and she’s very attached to him. So, she obviously goes to him first whenever she has a problem or she’s not feeling well or she has a question. He does his best to answer all her questions and concerns and to make her feel better. When he doesn’t know what to do, he asks his mom for help and advice. When she’s crying, he does what Toshinori does and hugs her and lets her cry it out. He isn’t perfect, he knows that, but he does his best and loves her like a good Onii-chan should.

I’m starting to run dry on these, so if anyone has any other additions for the rest of Class 1-A, put them down!

An Aquarius sat out her balcony, talking to someone on the phone. I glanced at her direction and I could hear the conversation coming from her: “Look, I know. Listen. Don’t interrupt me, and listen for once. God. You’re hopeless. I’m with.. No! We’ve been running around in circles, James. You need to let me go. I’m sorry..” She hangs up and lets out an irritable sigh and looks back at me and said, “My ex..” she laughed and continues to blast her music.

An Aries rubbed her arms and sighed, she looked at me and started to talk mad shit about her ex, and everything just feel like how it was before they met. Relationship became dull, and the fire between them grew dimmed. She looked down and then suddenly asked if she was wrong enough to think of him as weak when he didn’t even tried to fight for her, or how after she told him to man up he didn’t even do anything. She was at lost, and she broke down and cried.

A Cancer once told me how one of her old exes broke up with her, and how she ran to his flat and knocked and banged at his door, begging him to try again and cried for him, only for the door to open and be greeted by another woman. She stayed silent, and she looked at me and said, “To think I was going to run back into his arms again and do the unthinkable, to think I was going to drop alot of things for him, to think I was going to change for him. To think I was going to lose myself, and my god. I was saved. I didn’t and I will never do that ever again..”

A Capricorn used snapchat to get ahold of me and she seemed like she came out of a wreck. Tears streaming down her face, and her voice was all slurred. She’s been drinking again. This has been going on for days ever since she found out her boyfriend cheated on her. A couple minutes later, she snap chatted again and she seemed relax and cool. She’s telling me she realized how this was all pointless, and how everything happened for a reason. I knew this was her way of coping and I’ll just support her for this.

A Gemini told me that she was done with him, and how irresponsible and dumb he was. How everything he does is stupid, realizing now that all he has ever done was hurt her emotionally and mentally. Yet, when he tries to message her, she replies and entertains him. She is lost. She’s not sure herself what she wants. But I know she doesn’t need this.

A Leo sat with me not amused, an eyebrow arched and her arms crossed. She doesn’t want to deal with anything today, especially me. This was her last straw and I was always trying to make excuses to her about everything, and I never gave her an answer. She turned around and raised her middle finger at me as she walked out of the door.

A Libra placed her hands on my cheeks as we sat at the park for the last time. The relationship was coming to a close, and we both knew where this was heading. She smiled softly and looked me in the eyes. She said this was only the beginning of our story, and things like these happen. We learn. We grow, and life is always moving. We brush ourselves and start anew, and we will always be in each other’s hearts. Listening to her talk like this pains me because I know she’s being strong, but her hands begin to shake and she slowly rose and turned her back to me, and walked off. I sat there. I didn’t even know where to begin.

A Pisces’s ex keeps blasting up her phone, and she rolls her eyes as his name would pop up, trying to call her. Then he would text her multiple times. She frowns. A wave of emotions rushes through her, and her mind begins to play memories of him and her together. She reaches for the phone, and suddenly stops.. She bites her lip, then turns into a smirk. “Nah..” she realizes that it’ll be pointless from here on out, and just ignores it, and focuses her attention back to me. I asked her if she’s alright, and she smiles and said, “For once in my life, I’m better now.. ”

A Sagittarius sat me down and asked if she was being too irrational for moving too quick from kissing another guy at a party after her boyfriend just dumped her. I told her that it isn’t and she shouldn’t mind what her ex said. Her face lit up and said that she was right. She shouldn’t stress about him like that. She seemed happy about her decision and suddenly messaged the guy she kissed.

A Scorpio let out the heavy sigh as we watched the sunrise on the roof of her house. She watched as the sun slowly rises and mumbled to herself. I asked her what she just said, and she looked at me and said, “I want to die..” she looked into my eyes and before I could finish asking her she hushed me and continued, “I can’t keep doing this to myself and here I am looking at the new day and I don’t want to know what it has in store for me. I might call him again and ask him to come back, or I’ll have sex with this one guy I met at the coffee place, or.. I don’t know. It depends on my mood!” I called her edgy and she tries to push me off her damn roof. Jokingly enough, I knew.. she doesn’t have to do this to herself.

A Taurus messaged me a couple nights back. Surprised to get a messaged from her, I read:

Hey, I know this is all too sudden and it’s been years since we’ve last talked, but I just wanted to thank you for being such an amazing partner. You. I can go on about you, but I just wanted to write to you and thank you, and I guess this is my way of getting closure, and I’m thankful you’re still here with me. Growing with me (even when we’re far apart and talk often :P) btw we need to change that. We can still be friends, right? I mean.. I want to remain friends. It’s just.. I am glad we were together.

Reply back, okay?

- Taurus.

A Virgo would always grab my hand and tell me she loves me every time she’s with me. And I can hear the sincerity of her I love you. But lately, when I grab her hand she would only look at me and give me a small smile and her I love you seemed flat and monotone. I realized she was getting tired.. The music was over. She left the next day saying she needed time, and wanted something else.

—  Closure. Letting Go and Losing.

anonymous asked:

how do you come up with all the character designs??

To be completely honest, anon, I never follow a specific method when I draw character designs. Sometimes they’re done at completely random with no particular thought, and sometimes they’re done with specific characters in mind. But! With that said, I do have certain keys that I tend to follow.

The main key is to keep things interesting. But that’s more simple than said. What makes a character look interesting? What makes them stand out?

I’ll try to demonstrate my thought process as well as I can.

The first thing to keep in mind is to remember that your first design, even the finished version, is nothing more than a concept. Yes, even when it’s all done and you think it looks perfect, remind yourself that it’s not. Time will pass, and you will make adjustments at some point. Sometimes, it’ll be a complete redesign, and sometimes, it’s just a small detail. Either way, it’s important to remember that the design you end up with is, in fact, not the end result.

To some people it might help to draw out really quick scribbles of random designs to see which one speaks to you the most. I highly recommend this, and I’ve done this a lot! Again, my methods vary depending on mood or situation. From beginners to professionals, the scribble method works just as well. Here’s an example of some concept art of Dorian from Dragon Age Inquisition.

As you can tell, the artist tried out several looks on a model before settling with a design they liked. (Sighs… Teach me your ways, bioware…)

Some prefer to draw a model that they can draw the clothes on, some go completely wild, which is also perfectly fine, draw the “scribbles” in whichever way suits you, as shown here and here — just remember to keep it quick and simple; save the details for the design you end up liking the most!

  • (With that said, I want to mention that this tutorial will be more focusing on the design parts than the character appearance, because i feel like faces and bodies deserves it’s own tutorial (it’d be all too much for one post).)

Okay, let’s start designing. For the sake of demonstration, I’ll use two different ways of thinking and genres. On the left, I’ll draw a more ‘random’ design, going more on impulse rather than thinking of a certain character. The only thing I have in mind is that I want the genre to be Sci-Fi, so let’s call her that. On the right, I’ll try to keep a character in mind, with the genre being Fantasy for comparison to Sci-Fi, so let’s name him Fantasy. Remember, if you do have a certain character in mind, creating a character becomes much more complex, but more interesting. (In my opinion). You need to remember that what they do and who they are will, and must, show in their design in some way. Unless, of course, it’s purposely done the opposite, in which case you have to be even more careful. Remember, every detail will say something about them! For example, say a character loathes makeup. Why would they be wearing it? Unless you have a really good explanation, don’t draw them with makeup. Basic logic, and it would fit their character. (Note: NOT an excuse, if you do something just to ‘prove’ it to basic logic, then it’s an excuse. If it’s done intentionally and with good reasoning, then it will not come off as unwise.)

Back to the designs — I wanted to keep it fairly plain for the sake of easier explanation. Perhaps minor characters, or perhaps purposely down-played for the sake of character image. I wanted to give Sci-Fi a nice, strapless and form-fitting dress, I wanted her to look sweet, and I wanted Fantasy to be kind of creepy, eyes-on-you kind of guy, not someone who’s too fancy, but not lacking in money either since he knows his way around things. The way he rubs his fingers makes him seem kinda eager for something.

Does the designs I drew above translate any of this at all? As I can imagine you guessed: no, it does not. It just looks like Anyonewearing Clothes™ with hair doesn’t say much, either.  ™.

Perhaps if we add colour…

Colour theory will be a different tutorials altogether, but I’ll cover the basics. As you can see, these colours do not flatter each other, and it does not make the clothes look any more interesting. For Sci-Fi, I wanted her clothes to be cute and colourful, but she only ended up looking like I’ve dropped the basic colours of MS Paint on her. The reason why that is is because the hues do not differ from each other. If i were to make the drawing in grayscale, you would see little to no contrast difference between the colours. Even when you’re going for a certain palette, such as pastel, you must make sure that the contrast and hues are complementary. Only, only break this rule if you know about this rule already and have practiced it. You must learn the rules before bending them. Patience is key. You will learn to do your own method with time, but being ignorant and oblivious is poison if you want to improve. Don’t be afraid to matching darker colours with lighter ones, and don’t be afraid to play around with the hues. (For example, making the skirt more red than magenta, etc.)

Now, for Fantasy, I wanted him to seem like the guy who could afford expensive dyes, but he wouldn’t bathe in them (but he probably wants to). I wanted a vibrant red to show that knowing that red can be an aggressive or passionate colour, and is often also associated with danger or sex. Perhaps he has a violent nature, maybe he’s really passionate about something, or perhaps, he really loves to sleep with people. Judging by his body language and expression, some of those traits certainly seem to suit him. The colour most vibrant, the one to stick out the most, is the colour that will say the most about the characters. Secondary colours is just as important, too. The colours chosen, however? It makes him look like a badly decorated christmas tree. The problem is, like Sci-Fi, the lack of contrast and hue (you can barely tell the difference between the boots and the pants). Not only that, but also uncomplimentary colours. Green and red are two completely different colours, as is the case with many other colours. To make them more appealing to the eye, you need to adjust the contrasts between them, making one darker or lighter, and you also need to tone down the vibrance. Since I wanted red to be the primary colour, the vibrancy turned down would be the green colour, etc.

Now, the first step to making the design a bit more interesting is to look up references. I know, not too fun, but you can make it so. I highly recommend getting Pureref for this. While you can have your own design in mind, your own ideas, it always helps to look up references of pictures that inspire you. You’ll find things you would likely never have thought about on your own. The ideas with both Sci-Fi and Fantasy remains the same, but the tweaks made made them already more unique and stand out, and you’re starting to really see the look that you were going for. For Sci-Fi, I kept the strapless look, I even made the skirt form-fitting, and I even kept her boots. The difference was the silhouette. Don’t be afraid to go bold with your designs and shapes! Make them stand out! Chances are they aren’t as bold as you think. Yes, it’s the uncomfortable ‘go outside your comfort zone’ method. Trust me, after a while it won’t be uncomfortable. You’ll just have to believe in yourself and what you’re drawing. If you want to make unique characters, you need to think unique. You might have personally wanted to wear what Sci-Fi wore before, but she is, after all, not you. Even if Sci-fi is a more random design, you are drawing what she would wear, in her settings. Same with Fantasy. He, too, remains the same as before. He has boots, pants, and a shirt, just like before, but this time with more renaissance (?) influence. Instead of an ordinary collar, I gave him frills, hinting about his status, and added them on his sleeves as well. The shirt itself is a peasant blouse, and while I don’t imagine him being a peasant, it’s either saying that he’s more relaxed about the way he dresses, or, he’s not as rich as he’d like to be. For both of them, I also adjusted their hairstyles. I gave Sci-Fi some lovely, long hair with relaxed locks drooping down to enhance that sweet look I was going for. Fantasy got long hair as well, and while it has definitely been taken care off, judging by how slicked back it is, it’s not perfect, and intentionally so. Perhaps he doesn’t care — or maybe he he think it looks good as it is.

Don’t be afraid to make changes if something about the design doesn’t seem right to you. Does Sci-Fi’s dress really need to be sleeveless? Would Fantasy really walk around in a blouse? What would the differences you’ve made say about the characters? Giving Sci-Fi those details makes her look a little more dressed up — perhaps it’s a uniform of some sort?

Think about the limitations you have. If you’re drawing modern or historical characters, you will have to be more careful with how much you change with the look. Would the characters, in their settings, actually wear that? Would it suit the world the live in, does it suit the look you’re going for? Make careful decisions when thinking about this. If you need to make drastic changes, I suggest you start a new drawing entirely. Sometimes it’s better to start fresh to think fresh.

It’s worth mentioning, also, that when looking at references, if it okay to bend the rules, especially if it’s a fantasy or sci-fi setting. Use your references as inspirations, not as a hard must. Go by instinct, even if you have a character in mind!

Notice the repeated patterns. For Sci-Fi, there’s little hard-edged shapes, except around her shoulders and boots. This is why it reminded me of a uniform of some sort — notice, also, how her design has a lot of cut-outs, which is a repeated pattern as well. For Fantasy, I decided to make his design overall more sharp, with a lot of pointed shapes. I made the sleeves loose, to make him look just a little less formal, and with buttons as well for a repeated pattern.

Remember to add accessories! They might be subtle, and to so some even unnoticeable, but they are important, and they are noticeable in their own light. You won’t notice the rings of a character who has their hands in their pockets, but as soon as they bring the fingers to their lips to giggle, you’ll certainly notice them when they are big, and shaped like skulls. No accecories says a lot about the characters as well. Disney’s Rapunzel does’nt not even have shoes — no accessories whatsoever, but Flynn Rider, however, has very visible belts, straps and a pouch. What does that say about them? Why does a thief need pouches? Does the girl locked indoors all her life need jewelry to decorate herself with and shoes to protect the floor from being covered in mud? Accessories are statement pieces, even from the most simple ribbon to a thick, studded, leather belt. I feel like Sci-Fi would enjoy taking care of her hair, so I put more volume to her hair and added hair pins to show that. With that, I added gloves and a rather odd bracelet — since i felt her outfit looked like a uniform of some sort, but not a professional one, but perhaps a game promoter, I wanted to finish that off with some ‘unneeded’, stylistic gloves. With Fantasy, I added add a big ribbon to his hair, to bring more light to his status, while keeping a few careless hairs in front of his face. In addition to this, I decided to add big, bulky rings, but also keeping a very small, subtle necklace hidden behind his frilled collar, and some decorations on his boots as well, repeating the pattern on his jacket for a finished look.

Note that small details such as these can be tricky if you’re an animator, hence why in cartoons details like these are either not existent or extremely simplified — if you don’t animate, there’s no reason for you not to add details. Don’t limit yourself!

It’s worth mentioning that bigger garments, such as outerwear, capes, etc, will make more of an impact and statement once you finish the design. The more space they take, the more important they will seem. As a general rule, one should save this for main and supportive characters and their villains. That’s not to say that minor or background characters can’t have capes and jackets — it all depends on how you draw them, how much space they take, and how much detail and thought you’re giving them. It doesn’t also mean that important characters all need large garments, but it’s definitely something worth keeping in mind.

And this is how the ‘finished’ look ends up like. It’s not perfect, and certainly needs more work (more time and effort!) but it certainly stands out more than the first example I showed you. Notice how the same palette was used, but keep in mind what I said about the hue and the contrasting colours. They’re less in-your-face now, and more complimentary. Naturally, shading is extremely useful if you want to finish the looks, because it allows you to add more details and more texture to the designs. 

With that said, when you colour, you might notice that you want to add more to your character designs — such as the green stripes on Sci-Fi, or the vivid, red details on Fantasy. 

However, as mentioned before, note that this is not the finished result. It’s a concept, and it should not be overthinked or overworked. Once you’ve spent a certain amount of time on one design, let it go and work on a new one later. You may draw the same design again, but improved, or you might find yourself draw a new design entirely. Both are fine and both options should be explored and tried out!

I hope that helped you. ♥ If you want to check out more of my tutorials, you can find them here.

Jimin has been asked many odd, sometimes creepy questions while sitting alone at a club. Though usually, they are somewhere along the lines of “Wanna make out?” or “How about coming home with me?” Among the creepiest was when a young woman approached him and asked him if she could recruit him for her next porn film. He politely declined her and ordered another drink. As for the others, well, depending on the mood and the person asking, he might accept, or he might turn them away. (Usually the latter, because strangers in clubs could come from anywhere and carry anything.)

But the creepy ones aside, he’s been asked some weird, obviously alcohol-induced questions as well. Like just now, by the kid who came to sit next to him. He looks a little more than tipsy, his eyes drooping every couple seconds only to snap open again and stare at Jimin. Behind him, a couple stools down, two guys that look about his age sit and stare. One sends the boy an urging look, then the other waves his hand and mouths Well?

The boy continues to stare, expecting an answer to his ridiculous question.

Jimin clears his throat and says, “Can you repeat that?” It’s possible he could have heard him wrong…

He can’t see much of the boy’s face—just that he might be about his own age and is kind of cute—but even in this dark room he can tell he’s sweating. He tugs the sleeves of his red leather jacket and looks down, scrunching his nose like he’s in deep thought. Make that super cute.

He sends an uncomfortable glance back to his friends who sit idle, watching, waiting for him. One of them looks more interested than the other, but both have a look of mischief. Jimin is ready to feel bad for the way they seem to be patronizing him until he nods in their direction and clears his throat.

“I asked you if you were an elevator,” he says in the same shy way he asked it the first time.

Jimin laughs and sighs. This kid really is drunk.

“Sorry,” he says, lifting his drink to his lips. He can’t remember what he ordered and doesn’t really care, but it tastes good anyways. “But I’m not—”

“Because I would totally go down on you.”

As a Venus in Gemini what's your expierence with the other Venus signs?

Venus in Aries: PRETTY adorable! They are very upfront and honest when it comes to feelings and they don’t really beat around the bush. They love a good time and are super playful from my experiences! They can be a bit aggressive and or intense when they like you or find you attractive aha! And they are so the types to play the field from what I’ve seen but unlike most fire venus they don’t go to far with “showing off” because they tend to crush and love very hard and don’t like to jeopardize an opportunity. They also chase and love to chase! But I’ve noticed my favorite version is when people have this in a water house! I usually see them in athletic or outdoorsy type outfits.(Venus in the 1st)

Venus In Taurus: slow moving and smooth talkers. They seem to know just what to say and how to say it. These guys frustrate me at times because they really do move slow when it comes to courting and they usually aren’t the types to come out of nowhere with something outlandish or from left field as they do like some sort of routine! They are usually wearing comfy clothes made from super nice fabrics and sometimes it’ll be loose things. They also have such a beautiful and sensual vibe about them that I adore personally! They also aren’t usually the pursuing type their more of the slow and steady let’s make babies type of guys and gals 😂 but I love em!(Venus in the 2nd)

Venus in Gemini: (aye it’s me) from my experience with other Venus in Gemini I’d say we are the definition of “fast paced” our moods are constantly changing and so are our desires. I’ve noticed that we’re easily inspired and entranced by ideals and situations and curious of how they may turn out. Most I’ve met though are more likely single then they are “hoeing” so to speak. I do think there’s a misconception that Venus in Gemini aren’t committal and run away from relationships because in my experience we’d much rather stay single then play the field. Especially since the concept of a relationship is something of curiosity for us but most of the time that’s all it is. But we’re very loyal and very dedicated once were in love and are very childlike! There’s a youthfulness about how Venus in Gemini express their love and joy in the world because they see it as a playground to learn and explore. But ones I’ve met have varying styles that are almost never similar lmao! And they tend to change their style and lives very often. Usually the more quiet types when it comes to having a s/o (Venus in the 3rd)

Venus in cancer: guys I’ve met with this are the dads while women I’ve met with this position are the moms Of the zodiac. They usually have extremely nurturing qualities and are a lot more emotionally resilient then I personally think they’re given credit for. Ones I’ve met are also super aloof and tend to play the field as far as romance goes and usually don’t get emotionally invested in a partner or love interest until like years later. They also like to keep their outfits traditional and I’ve noticed the guys(gay/straight/unicorn and so on) tend to always fall into the dad look like I can’t even explain it lmaooo you’ll catch them in sandals and crocs. While the girls usually wear jewelry and or pleasant and easy on the eyes clothing. I don’t find them to be clingy personally and I love how sensitive and caring they are! (Venus in the 4th)

Venus in Leo: well here’s the thing I personally my best friend is a Venus in Leo and she’s so amazing. But I’ve also known a guy with this and his ego is the size of our solar system and maybe even andromeda. They def have egos and def have a high level of presence about them that’s so captivating and comforting at the same time. They have high standards for themselves and usually aren’t easily taken down or belittled by anyone. They always stand their ground and for the most part they NEED A LOT OF ATTENTION. like seriously they don’t like partners or friends who fail to keep up with them and shower them with love. This is mainly from what I’ve seen due to the fact that their actually huge softies and super sensitive and in need of reassurance. Personally this doesn’t bother me but like Venus in Leo usually don’t get along with my “non Chalant” attitude.(Venus in the 5th)

Venus in Virgo: I AM IN LOVE WITH THESE LITTLE SWEET HEARTS. For starters they are so so so sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo compassionate and they always try to actor to the needs of others before their own. They can be on the more “self deprecating” side of things when it comes to their self esteem and they usually don’t take themselves or life to seriously. They are hard workers when it comes to maintaining their health and their clothes and romantic endeavors. From what I’ve noticed whether they are OCD about cleaning or seemingly not..They are always CLEANING and they all no matter who it is needs things to be clean. The guys usually like clean and chill and easy natural beauty type partners(guy or girl) and girls usually go for either super messy and bad boys or preppy easy going foreigners. But they are so loyal and really do and are willing to sacrifice for those whom they are about. They’re a lot more “mental” about love like Venus in Gemini and don’t really do half ass relationships they need to see work and can be the types to test a partners work ethic when it comes to the partnership. So if they stop trying YOU BETTER WORK YOUR ASS OFF to get them back. Overall they’re so great! Just wish they’d also trust their heart in love instead of just their head.(Venus in the 6th house)

Venus in libra: honestly…I always end up crushing on guys with this. Like they’re sooo handsome and charming! They really know how to work themselves around an audience and any situation. They’re super adaptable and can be super easy to speak with and converse with! They usually don’t like confrontation from what I’ve seen even if it’s in a house like the 8th or 1st house! They usually also dress very nice! Women here can have a very graceful and curvy look to them while men also will have a more curvy and thick build. They tend to wear floral and or clean cut outfits and can be very stylish! From what I’ve seen also they tend to stay away from “romance” now this might sound weird but most I’ve seen usually are very slow when it comes to commitment and may prefer a flirty and friendly relationship before a heavy and weight full one. They need to know they can communicate and “hang” with you before starting anything serious. But they’re super giving and loving once you’ve got them! OHHH AND THEY HAVE BEAUTIFUL LITTLE SMILES.
(Venus in the 7th)

Venus in Scorpio: okay so textbook wise Venus in Gemini and Venus in scorpio are hell on wheels together and shouldn’t interact. Well boo to that. I LOVE Venus in scorpios. They are very tense and passionate. They usually have more serious demeanors when it comes to flirting and romance and somewhat move at a pace that depends on the person they like and how much of a connection they can feel from it. They are super loyal and faithful as friends and lovers and don’t like to play games or “sneak around” from what I’ve noticed they usually play the field but they also play the field when they’re with someone either if they feel unsure about the relationship or seem to be holding on to past hurt. Either way they don’t usually cheat the worst they’d do is flirt with someone else but they’d never damage a connection beyond repair unless you cross that line with them first. They are sexual but not openly and are super private about it. Romance wise they’re full of deep eye contact that gets deeper the closer you guys get and as the years go on they change a lot and grow so don’t expect them to be the same as you met them. They are also looking for long term with things and move slow when it comes to trusting and opening up but I personally find them fascinating and vice versa! I’ve loved the ones who are in earth houses the most as it keeps them more peaceful and able to handle their passions better(Venus in the 8th)
Oh side note they usually wear a lot of black and sports wear and comfy clothes similarly to Taurus Venus.

Venus in Sagittarius: these guys are NOMADIC as hell. They don’t like being in a place or situation for to long at all. They can also be super fickle and sway when it comes to commitment. But they are so spontaneous and free and I love that about them! They can be super dynamic and unique in how they dress and present themselves. I’ve noticed guys and girls with this tend to have a resting face and seem generally unbothered or interested in the moment that their in a lot of the time. It’s a sort of disconnected gaze they have. They are also very in to trying new things and new places and usually are the ones posting on ig about “wishing I was_______” “can’t wait to go back to _________” they are also super passionate and turbulent people whom can seemingly go of the rails at the drop of a hat lmao but overall I love them too pretty authentic guys and gals who don’t bite their tongue. They usually like the chase and passion filled romances. (Venus in the 9th)

Venus in Capricorn: man..they can be very intimidating! They have a very heavy presence about them that you always pick up on. Guys I’ve noticed rock nice beards and look really good in them while girls can have really straight hair or long hair. They also tend to be serious and have moments of seriousness even if they have a super airy or watery chart. They usually also have a very well put together dress style that screams “mature” “cultured” “experienced” ones I’ve noticed don’t usually date younger partners. Girls/guys: go after older partners and can be attracted to older partners and vice versa. The guys sometimes go for younger gals but I’ve noticed this with Capricorn rising guys more then I have with the Venus signs. They also can have such a nature and serious view on romance and don’t like to rush or jump into something as they seem to relate it to a actual job. They aren’t the most tender or openly affectionate either and I mean I personally never had a problem with this because one thing I’ll say although they lack that initial tenderness they can be super loving and warm just through actions rather then words. THEY ALSO HAVE BEAUTIFUL SMILES!!!! oh looool they hate having their privacy breached so like don’t ever get in their bubble cause they’ll kill you.
(Venus in the 10th)

Venus in Aquarius: I usually like these folks! But for starters they are very trendy dressers like they are very stylish and usually are the thrifters and people who have something eccentric or new age about their dress style. I’ve noticed that they like dating unique or strange people and you know they guys scream emo culture to me and I’m here for it! They can be very magnetic because of the aloof and detached energy they throw out. They can seem like they don’t care about much and don’t really like to immediately jump into an emotional relationship until they’ve known you for awhile. Overall I love them and I think they’re pretty nice people! They’re super sensitive and ooey gooey once they open up to you as they do tend to have 918739182827338 walls up. I actually think they are like airy Scorpio venuses high key. Oh girls here are super into the bad boys and “uninterested” boys. (Venus in the 11th) oh and they date their friends from what I’ve seen like they end up having feelings for their homeboys or girls and they usually like to be ambiguous when it comes to sexuality.

Venus in Pisces: super ethereal and enigmatic. They can be soooo loving and caring! They usually wear really hippie and or baggy and cultural clothing. Their very attracted to “cultures” and can be a bit diverse in their styles from what I’ve seen. They usually are very quiet and have a far away vibe about them! They don’t usually scream “romance” to me and can somewhat be loners and the more isolated guys and gals! They love very hard though and can be extremely sacrificial to those they love and unfortunately can stay in abusive situations because of this and may not leave those people because they feel like they can save them! :( they are super peaceful and easygoing and don’t like people who are to abrasive or loud! They don’t strike me as clingy and tend to be rather independent! But they do attract co dependent partners and can somewhat reflect this behavior. They kinda are like mirrors to me! And they have super fluid energy and can seemingly be anyone at once. They are an old romance type of people and although they don’t show it they are super emotional and Romantic once you get to know them platonically and otherwise! Animals love them as much as Venus in Virgo! (Venus in the 12th-I have this)

This was long but I had a lot to say about all of these beauties!

Part One  Part Three  Part Four  Part Five

Warnings: Strong language, violence, Jerome’s past

Sorry it’s so long!  


“Who was that?” James asked as you finally made your way to the cabin that Paul had set aside for emergencies.

“It was no one.” You sighed and ruffled his hair.

“But he looked exactly like me.” James pointed out.

“Promise me if he finds you at school or on the street you won’t go with him and you won’t listen to what he tells you?” you asked the boy who shrugged.

“Whatever.” He sighed, grabbing the bat he’d been lugging around all day.

“Do you want to talk about why you tried to hit that girl at school?” You asked awkwardly, carrying in the food that was still in the back of the car.

“I felt like it.” He snapped, suddenly angry as he stormed away.

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | MASTERLIST

A subliminal pain, throbbing inside of your head waked you as slowly as it had put you to sleep, the night before.
Your eyes were still closed, you didn’t dare to open them yet, afraid of the sunlight hitting you like a hammer, with quick and hard strikes.

You carefully unclenched your lids, peeked up to the stone ceiling and already regretted those last shots you had taken, to realize that you weren’t lying in your bed. With your eyes still fixed upwards you slowly remembered that you had fallen asleep, on the couch in the Gryffindor common room.

As your senses finally came back, you felt something touching your lower thigh. Twitching lightly to the unknown contact, you looked down to see that someone had been putting a blanket over you. 
The touch at your leg was Sirius. He was sitting on the floor, still dozing. His back leant against the sofa, head resting lopsided on top of the seat padding, pressing slightly against your calf.

As you carried on examining, your view wandered along his arm, which was laid on the couch as well, pointed your way. His hand rested only inches apart from yours, making you wonder if he had been holding it, while you were sleeping.
Woken by your movement, he blinked slowly and stroked his neck, before turning his head your way.

“Morning”, he mumbled, his voice raspy, as he started to rub his eyes.

“Morning”, you replied, pulling your legs towards your body, sitting upright, to lean against your upper thighs, before peering across the room.

It was a mess. Cups and empty bottles spread everywhere, some puddles of strange fluids here and there, with soggy cigarette buds in them. But the view was nothing compared to the smell. It made your headache even worse.

“The aftermath of a great night”, you sighed. “Why are you not in your dorm?”

“I wasn’t sure if that special someone would try to shower you with his desire again, so I decided to stay”, he said and pressed his fingers into his neck again.

All of last night’s memories came back.

anonymous asked:

Ask box is open!! Okay, can I please have scenario with Oikawa with the soulmate au where the first words they say to you are on your wrist? Maybe something unexpected, and with the College Au or Celebrity Au? I'm not sure whichever I like better ^^; I wish I could think of the first words, but depending on which Au... anyways, thank you, and love your blog! It really brightens my day and I've been checking it for a year. Keep up the good work; Love you guys!! <3

Aw, I’m so glad you’re enjoying this blog! I’ve decided to go with the Celebrity AU. :)

-Admin Lana

The world was waiting for the day when J-Pop icon, Oikawa Tooru, announced the reunion of his soulmate. It was safe to say that thousands of men and women alike we’re vying that they were the lucky person who was soul bound to the celebrity, some going as far as to tattoo new phrases to their wrists in desolate hope. Admittedly, you were a fan of the man himself, enjoying his songs that were released and enjoyed watching the music videos that came out. You’ve even managed to attend a concert or two, something worthwhile despite the cost. Sometimes you wondered what it would be like to be in love with a man like him, but no good ever came out of empty wishes. You simply hoped that you would find your own soulmate in time.

A smile crossed your face as a familiar song played on the speakers in the coffee shop. It was a light tune, one that had you bouncing on your heels as you fixed an espresso for a customer. Working in a small scale shop like this always improved your mood. Moving from behind the counter, you made your way to a table situated in the far back corner, the space mostly occupied by students needing a quiet space to study or those who didn’t want to be bothered by the hustle and bustle of others.

“Here you go, sir. One vanilla bean espresso and a blueberry scone.” You called out cheerily, gently setting the items on the table. The man glanced up from beneath glasses, a hat covering his head. But you knew that face all too well, it was on your tv screen more often than not. Your mouth fell open in shock, not believing that a celebrity was in your coffee shop.

Brown eyes widened as he realized that you recognized who he was despite the disguise. “Please, for the love of god, do not scream!” His voice was hushed as he hurriedly pulled you to sit down, a finger pressed against your parted lips.

Almost immediately you looked to your wrist, watching as the words slowly darkened. For years, you wondered who or what the context was behind the words tatted to your wrist, and now the pieces were finally coming together. “You might find this hard to believe, but I think you’re my soulmate…” Displaying your arm, you watched as the man observed it, eyes widening for a moment, before a knowing look crossed his expression.

Oikawa leaned back, rolling up his sleeves to show his own tattoo that had darkened as well, the first words you had uttered to him. “I finally found you after all these years.” He breathed, hands coming to gently cup your face, almost to make sure that you were real. “You’re more beautiful than I imagined.”

It amazed you how calm you were being after finding out that a celebrity you looked up to was your soul bound lover. This was something that you only read in books or saw in movies. “Yo-you’re okay with being with someone like me? I’m not any of those actresses or idols that you’ve been with.” It was only natural to have this reaction, the women he’s been with prior were among model tiers.

He simply shook his head and smiled, his joy contagious. “Why wouldn’t I be? You’re my soulmate and that’s all I could ask for.” The idol paused, taking note of your uniform. “Ah, I’m sorry, you’re working right now. I don’t want to cause any more trouble, but would you mind meeting up sometime later this week?”

Your heart swelled, fumbling in your apron pocket for the notepad you kept handy, scribbling your name and number. “That would be great, I look forward to hearing from you.” He opened his mouth to say something, but fell short as your name wasting called. You mouthed ‘sorry’ before shuffling away from the table, but not before he winked and blew a kiss your way. If things continued like this, your heart wouldn’t be able to take it.

The only thing you had to worry about now as how his fans were going to react once they found out that Oikawa Tooru found his soulmate.

The instinctive subtypes as I understand them

My attempt to consolidate what I’ve read in a way that filters/presents actual data without forcing them to fit it inso hamfisted, tortured shemes or concepts & to synthesize something from at times not all that concordant sources & illustrate descriptively where the differences are; I’m not under the illusion that I don’t have a PoV, but I can try.

Basically ppl initially theorized that each of the instincts would produce similar suptypes, but while they have certain similarities (ie, sp/sx being invested in their interests, sx/soc startng personal conversations with everyone… my mom somehow extracted a particular cashier’s entire family history), the ‘state of the art’ is that each type can present quite differently when filtered through one’s instincts, which fasciatingly illustrate how the self awareness/willpower, complex cognition, raw emotions & your instinctually driven brainstem all sit on top of each other and sorta form a whole.

In some types the subtypes can be fairly similar, in others they can be extremely different, especially when they go bad…

sp 1 - Someone who wants to be right/good/super-ego compliant when it comes to their own affairs and their everyday life; Might have a perfectionistic approach to their own work & behavior or even living space (keep it neat & presentable etc.) and/or turn it inward in an anxious way to the point of obsessive tendencies.  Might be cordial or, if healthy, even warm to others, not so much showing the cold or hot zeal you’d find in the other subtypes.

soc 1 - Has a colder, teacher-like demeanor; Most intellectual 1 especially with a 9 wing.  This is the “nitpicky” one the stereotypes are loosely based on, basically a person who wants things to be done right in society, wether it is the country at large, their workplace or their friend group, and be measured & controlled in their interactions with others.

sx 1 - Wants to spread in a ‘dialogue’ setting; Most likely to openly display anger, the type of person to be outraged at all the injustice in the world. Unhealthy individual might be a moral watchdog/ white knight/Nosy Neighbor projecting their own rejected impulses onto others or perpetate institutional/religious abuse, often having a “why not” approach to hypocritically fulfilling their desires on the side in the process of decrying others out of a twisted envy for their (”I repress my desires so everyone else should, too, even though it’s my cjoice to begin with”); Healthy individual would fight for actual good causes and be an uncorruptible whistleblower making sure society stays fair.

sp 2 - Quite different from the stereotype, this subtype hopes to make themselves loveable with a childlike, innocent/endearing demeanor. Might expect to be taken care of & act spoiled & entled; Sort of project more ‘static’ good attributes to attract the love & care of others & might feel they have to keep their attention/entertain them somehow to not be overlooked.   Healthier individuals will be sweet, charming & caring and provide for their loved ones with material/well-being related favors.

soc 2 - The “Charity Worker” or “Mom friend” sort of person. While the previous subtype acts overly childlike, this one is overly adult & wants to be in the role of the caretaker while perhaps overlooking their own needs/ fill an important/helpful/indespensable role for a larger whole of people, perhaps an organization - for that reason this subtype can actually be ambitious & leaderlike to get an important position (and/or help a lot of people).  Can get meddlesome,  histrionic, dramatic (”You all don’t appreciate my efforts!”) and/or develop psychosomatic problems when unhealthy.

sx 2 - The closest to the stereotypical version; The sort of person who always needs to have someone to focus on/  (best friend, boy/girlfriend, children…) really can’t stand being alone. Unhealthy individuals might end up on the manipulative or codependent side, more functional ones will be giving & generous toward their loved ones.

sp 3 - The “Businessperson” Markedly different in that while they might still be braggarts, they’re not overtly flashy and might even disdain flashyness & rather play up their no-frills, pragmatic qualities; Projects an image of ‘being able to care for themselves completely’ & not needing anyone (”I didn’t take no free handouts from no one”) which might manifest as being very sucessful, ambitious & industrious, and, in the best case, inspirational, adaptive & preseverant with a “can do” attitude; Most focus on self-improvement.

soc 3 - Now here’s where the flashy is at; This is the commonly known version. Might be interested in fame & popularity or at least adoration in their circle, comes with a lot of “aura” around them, less enlightened individuals might tend toward the fake, shallow & grandiose, but in the more self-aware ones we find confident public self-love & ppl wo are very good at making an impact on others & making their dreams come true.

sx 3 - Also fairly different but accounts for a lot of em, for example, I was surprised to learn that 3 is the 2nd most common type among ESFJs, and sure there might be some enterpreneurial or flashy ones but they’re not what we most commonly think about… but that was before I got this info. This subtype will present as attractive according to the values present around them, maybe the gender norms,  they’ll try to have the perfect friends & family & partner, perfect house etc the stuff the magazines recomend to be liked & admired but more admiration by the ppl immediately around you than society at large; Might still make a good actress or star tho but in a different way.  Though all 3s are usually on the more extroverted side or at least very good at social maneuvering, it’s the least pronounced in this subtype and some can even be a little shy, maybe worrying if they measure up to what they feel society expects from them; As with all 3s getting an understanding about which wants & goals are truly theirs, being transparent about those and knowing that they’re valuable just for being people probably helps.

sp 4 - These are complex, apparently. I’m not sure f it depends on the wing, the exact stacking or simply how life has treated them, but these tend to fall into two categories; Their similarity is that they tend to deal with their feelings/uffering more by themselves, and might be kinda torn between wanting to take care of their shit by themselves but also lowkey wishing someone would notice, which they might deny or be embarassed about; Also they might use physical possesions/decorations as a means of self-espression but be detached of non-symbolic possesions.

Some of them might present as relatively sunny & quirky, with an undercurrent of melancholy there, the sort to try to keep up a smile and lament about the mishaps in their daily lives and self-console themselves with some chocolate or scented baths or other material things.

The others will do the “enduring it by themselves” more through projecting toughness (and might be easily mistaken for 6s or 8s.) sort of like this type of anime character who’s a tough, cold adult woman that is all embittered because of some sad backstory; In the extreme of that you get a risk-taking, vagabond–like person.

For whatever it’s worth, as a sp-first person with a w4 and secondary 4 fix, I’d say I have traits of both; It depends on which mood you catch me in.

soc 4 - Probably the ones that could be said to most overtly display shame; They’re also fairly different depending on their functionality level, less functonal ones will often compare themselves t others & find themselves lacking/ have low self-esteem and might (ironically) be the most socially anxious and/or avoidant and reclusive.

In the medium range some of them can be involved with subcultures (goth, hispter, punk, what-have-you) as a way to reconcile the opposing impulses of seeing themselves as disparate from the larger society but still wanting to belong to a group.

At their best they often become savy critics of society & will try to help keep society staying true to authentic ideals or make it better.

sx 4 - The 4 classic. Better characterized as a refusal to feel shame for who they are and perhaps a kind of resentment over their lot in life; Attitude of having been personally wronged. Dramatic & possibly competitive (especially with 3 wing), might be very critical of themselves and others & lament the unfairness of their situation, in extreme cases to to the point of vindictiveness, errecting an arrogant superior veneer or misanthropy (”I hate (normal) people.”)/ feel that others have it easier/get more attention than they deserve & be resentful over that;

Might be tempestous, intense & feel personally wronged, be moody or sullen & just generally have a lot of feelings.

As their best they’ll be uncompromisingsy idealistic & integrous and will turn their high standards toward being their best possible selves & doing the best possible work, generally very creative folks and care a lot about making sure everyone’s treated with respect & fairness despite their differences/ might want to help others also become their best possible selves & generally stand up

In searching partnerships they might run into the problem that they have very high standards and might not find someone who meets them or become disillusioned when their partners don’t live up to their ideals; Also I’ve read somewhere that they have the minor quirk of often staying friends with their exes.

It is to be noted that these usually start out as those super sweet  sensisitive, imaginaive children before middle school/[any random stressor]  happens to them and that a lucky few mantain/regain this in adulthood, but there’s always going to be a fierce, immediate quality to their individualism.

sp 5 - The ‘Hobbyist’ mostly spends all day with their own pursuit of their current obsessions; Introvert among introverts, autonomy & having their own space is very important (many chose to live alone or at least like to have their own area in the house, where they might keep personally significant or potentially useful stuff; Might be minimalistic. Or just quirky. Tends to really like the idea of “secret hiding places” & construct/stock a ‘lair’ that they won’t have to leave more often than necessary so they can follow their pursuits.  )

soc 5 - The most intellectual/detached & most uninterested in ‘everyday life’; often tries to fill the role of an ‘expert’ in society/a group & see that as somthing they have to ‘bring to the table/contrbute’; Often interested in symbolism or understanding how society works, the meanings behind great patterns, might have a tedency to admire people they agree with or find accomplished & be drawn toward groups of other ‘experts’. The most detached from small-scale everyday life. Less pleasant examples might be stuck-up & elist.

sx 5 - Least outright ‘academic’ and kinda more dreamy with more of a ‘natural’ curiosity a rich inner life & artsy inclinations, might dream of best friends and/or lovers but not be as good at realizing it IRL because of their withdrawn nature.

Could be mistaken for a non-sx-4 or  sx 9 but distinguished by the sharing of thoughts & information as  a point of appeal; Want to share thir own secret world with the person & have their thoughts be understood.

While individuals without sx in their stacking/in the last spot might want a partner who’s not too demanding & uncomplicated to live with, (if they’re interested in finding one at all), folks with a more pronounced sx insticts will look for friends &/or partners they can have an intellectual exchange with. (Or at least phantasize about finding them)

sp 6 - The “warm/cute” variant of 6. Looks endearing, kind & harmless so others will trust them, wants to be part of gropus in their local surroundings - family, community etc so less system-oriented, or rather working for the system in their immediate surroundings. Tedentially the most phobic/ compliant variant; Under extreme stress, turns into anxious nervous wreck.

soc 6 - Most intellectual, outright ‘mental’ and system-oriented variant, will seek to understand the rules that govern society, most sceptical, keeps authority in check, can be a sort of beaurocratic legaliatic person or a dutyfull whistlblower. Examples which go bad can become conspiracy theorists or outright paranoid.

sx 6 - The ‘warrior’/’punk’/’rebel’, most counterphobic & reactionary of the subtypes, most rebellious, sort of sublimates energy, the interpersonal “testing” behavior is probably most overt here. The sx drive toward making a direct impact on the people you regularly interact with comes out as wanting to have a tough, intimidating effect of people, to have them respect (and therefore not coss/harm/betray) you. Can be mistaken for 8 but while these are more ‘lone fighters’ or ‘ringleades’, & just want others not to cross them, the 6 will react more to perceived infractions into their ‘territory’ and rely on strenght in numbers where the 8 is adversrial & independent.

Can be real badass & stand up against unjust authorities/ actually get trusted & respected, but also become complete fanatists at worst.  

sp 7 - The ‘Hedonistic ‘Pragmatist’: Focussed toward getting their physical needs met and seeks physical/material pleasure. While some name the soc 7 as the ‘countertype’ I personally think the sp 7 is one that has the marked difference to the others: While other 7s will be idealistic and can be naive, this one is instead pragmatic, materialistic,  realistic & wordly quite unlike the ‘scattered, unfocussed, pixie dream girl’ 7 stereotype.

Can be a good business person, extroverted yet discernin nature helps to form  & secure & formaliances, and be pretty assertive and enterpreneurial, even agressive.

Less functional examples are at real risk for addictions (with or without substances involved) & can be pretty selfish & ruthless as they see much of the world as commodities to cosume and might lose sight of everything but ensuring their own material comfort.

soc 7 - Wants to make “the most of their time” in the sense of interacting with/ contributing to larger society and ‘doing worthwhile things’; Your classic ‘benevolent adventurer’, might travel the world with their friends and/or become a activist/ work toward noble causes, have a self-sacrificing bent. Probably the subtype where the ‘overplanning’ problem can be most apparent.

Maybe because the soc instinct’s drive to focus on the group and the fear to lose your own hapiness are more likely to conflict, this is the subtype where the inner anxiety can be the most prominent/ closest to the surface, especially with a 6 wing. Because of all this, can be mistaken for social 2, but ephasis, motivations & reactions will be subtly different as they’re not so much about earning the direct grattitude of others .

sx 7 - Seeks mainly intense experiences & connections to others and as such can be adventurous & very novelty-seeking. Often has a certain  ‘manic creativity’ to them, probably embodies the ‘positive’/’optimistic’ aspect of the 7 the most. Can be very dreamy, idealistic & energetic. Partnership wise, they might be very romantic & look for the one ideal person. 

Also adventurous, can have a tendency to be impressed by/aprreciate/ be excited about all the new cool things they encounter/people they meet.

One common downside is that these individuals can be a bit on the naive/ suggestible side, at least in their youth, and might end up inadvertedly sabotaging their relationships with their tendentially scattered nature. 

On the lower health levels, there can be actual manic tendencies, and increasing inability to control one’s emotions

Can occasionally be mistaken for a 4, especially with 4 fix.

sp 8 - The ‘tough lone fighter’ sort of 8; A bit like a sp 3, they’re going to want to show that they can take care of themselves and some might express this though securing material wealth, though the independence will be more pronounced, wating others to get off their case & respect their boundaries more than to make an impression on them like the 3 or ‘be the boss’ like the other subtypes (though they might still fill the boss role to get shit done/ not tolerate disrespect/just by virtue of acting dominant)

These are typically very self-governed ppl who don’t listen to or rely much on others and follow their own judgement, sometimes to the point of an ubermensch mentality. (not necessarily a bad thing depending on what their values happen to be, they could fall anywhere between honest, fortright & & following their own justice without yielding to outside pressure/hypocricy, or self-servingly amoral) One particular quirk/traits is that they will often act idependently/ “just go and do something” without referring to other authorities especially if it’s something related to getting what they need; In some cases this can lead to ruthlessness. 

soc 8 - The ‘ringleader/gangboss’ sort of 8, where the adversarial, jungle-survival-y attitude of the 8 gets projected onto their peer group & the strenght/ filling of the ‘strong’ role is lived in part through taking others under their wing. 

The worst example would be that one archetypical short guy leadin a band of bullies, flanked by two taller musclier cp6s. Or they could be muscly themselves, it’s the ‘ganboss/armed-with-a-posse’ part that’s the point. Exertion of power/intimidation through having a group as your asset. Other pitfalls can be black & white thinking where the ‘them’ group is seen as practically a caricature, ie basically mob mentality. (Donald Trump anyone?)

The best of them is pretty much the exact opposite, someone who protects & forms a band for the downtrodden. more the sort of person who’d kick a bully’s ass and offer the bully-ee to check out their friend group & empower them to be more confident; Of course part of that involves allowing themselves to feel tenderness for their friends (and indirectly, for themselves) & feel for their troubles. 

sx 8 - More geared toward projecting strenght & self-ruled-ness in terms of direct interpersonal impact, this is going to be a person with an impressive commanding and/or tough aura; Often someone you have to respect even i you don’t agree with them, a ‘charismatic/magnetic leader’ (more sx/soc) or intense rebel (more sx/sp) sort of person. 

Unhealthy individuals can have a volatile temper and be possesive, controling partners, though those are ppl shooting themselves in the foot due to their inability to fully trust others; Actually they’re the most at home in a ‘Lady & Knight’ sort of dynamic and a well-developed individual will be very comitted & devoted to their partner. 

While 8s with less pronounced sx instincts might look for a ‘worthy opponent’ type partner who is also impressive & idependent, this subtype especially is all about trust & look for someone who will be completely loyal & trusts their decisions & might even have self-awareness to recognize that that is because that makes them feel safe themselves. 

They take betrayal really badly (though most 8s do); At the very best they’ll wash their hands of you. Doesn’t help that many 8s are types with absent/polR or inferior Fi. This is not a place where you wanna poke them. 

sp 9 - An earthy creature of habit sort of person, whose means of ‘tuning out’ in times of stress will tend to be everyday/material comforts like food, watching TV etc.  Grounded, calm and patient. Though 9s generally tend to be your typical phlegmatic temperament/‘people-oriented introverts’, this subtype is the most likely to require frequent alone time. Has their own way of doing things and will put up resistance when asked to change their habits.

Tends to be humble & content with their peaceful everyday life but can be inflexible. 

soc 9 - This one can be a bit harder to identify because they might not look all that ‘passive’ at first, in fact, they can be quite hard-working, maybe a combined effect of the 9s identification with/reliance on he larger complete system/environment, and the soc instinct’s ability to really comprehend/grasp that ‘evironment’ and its constituents as more than a vague mass, thus the tendency to want to actively contribute to its continued existence & stability, but unlike, say, a 1 or 3 they will do this in a very self-effacing manner; 

In the worst case there’s where you find the ‘deadened office drone’ variety of disfunctional nine.

sx 9 - The most ‘dreamy’ nine where the ‘epic inner fantasy’ life is the most pronounced; ‘Idealized Identification with the environment’ will be more bound to particular people though the person themselves might not even be aware how much their idea of themselves & their lives is anchored in those people. he main point of synergy between the instinct and the type is a desire for unification so it’s not usual to find these ppl as nature-lovers, spiritual types, or just, looking for a deeper/ideal form of ‘peace’. 

Though with a ostly internal coping mechanism less functional examples can look apathetic & escapistic.

Tips and experiments on how to efficiently clean old bones

Important: This is pretty much a summary of all the research I’ve done on the subject and personal experiences from people who dabbled with bone preservation. I’m still experimenting with bone preservation using hydrogen peroxide so I might get things wrong here, I intend on updating this guide with new things I discover, and I more than welcome people with actual knowledge on the subject to correct me or add more tips!
Also if you’re a child pls get an adult to do this and don’t play with chemicals, I don’t have money for a lawsuit.

We’ve all been there. Upon arriving at an excavation site, or while surveying, we sometimes find a cool-looking, out-of-context bone. It’s clearly old (maybe not ancient, but old) and out of context, so it might even be legal to take, depending on your country’s law and your profs mood. Upon picking up your new, maybe-legally acquired bone, you notice it’s grimey af. “fuck”, you say. “how could I POSSIBLY clean it?” you say. “LIKE THIS!” I say, providing you with a short, amateurish guide on How To Pretty Up That Old Bone You Randomly Found™:

Thinking about using the good ol’ chlorine bleach? THINK AGAIN because the bone you’ll recover from a chlorine bleach bath will most likely either become super fragile and crumbly, or come out in a liquid state, and no one likes a mushy, flaccid bone.
Also - keep in mind that what is written here should not be applied to bones that seem fragile and crumbling. Why’d you even pick them up they’re far too fucked to be restored by amateurs like me lol.
Also 2.0 - what is written here should not be applied to fresh roadkill or whatever fucked up freshly decomposing carcass you find outside.

What you should be thinking about using is hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). You can buy H2O2 at any drugstore (3% and 6% concentrates are what is sold in my local store). Avoid using H2O2 that is meant for hair since it has other components in it that can damage the bone.

First, get a toothbrush, prefferably not your own, and brush the bone with some warm (not hot, I repeat, not. hot.) water till you get the dirt out. If the dirt is especially stubborn, sharpen a chop-stick into a shiv and carefuly pry the dirt out. If chopsticks are not available, find another pointy wooden potential prison weapon and avoid using a pointy metal thingy since wood is much softer and has far less chances of damaging the bone. After getting done with the initial dirt touch ups, steal a plastic container (with a lid) from your unsuspecting mother/roomates. Put some gloves on, be responsible and don’t handle H2O2 with your bare hands for the love of god. Put your bone in the stolen container, cover it with hydrogen peroxide and add an equal amount of water. Close the lid, hide the box from your disturbed mother/roomates and wait for about a week. Don’t use a lid that completely seals the container from the outside world, it’ll literally blow the fuck up. Use a slightly loose lid. 

You should leave your morbid witch container be for about a week, but still check up on your bone every other day to see its progress. Higher concentrate hydrogen peroxide has more chances of eating away the bone so keep an eye on it!
It’s been about 48 hours since I soaked the Astragalus I found and so far so good! Will add pics once the whole process is done!

Going back to fresh roadkill and decomposing carcasses: H2O2 does not dissolve soft tissue and flesh, so don’t pick up that shit thinking H2O2 will get rid of it for you. What H2O2 will do to a bone like that is make the soft tissue more loose and easier to remove. It will also sterilize the bone, which is good. 

Now go have fun with your slightly disturbing hobby!

Hello! ''Tis me again. Could you write some general romance headcanons like you did before for MTMTE Megatron (maybe a bit of before and after the war?), Fortress Maximus, Optimus Prime (from tfa and/or tfp, or even IDW if that's easier), Prowl (IDW or tfa), Soundwave, Rung, Heatwave (rb), and Grimlock (rid15 or IDW). I'm so sorry there's so many. Your headcanons are flufftastic though and I'm crying from the cuteness

It’s only 8, lovely(Made 9 by me but shhh)! I don’t mind a lot of characters~ Rescue Bots isn’t on the list of continuities I do, buuuut! You’re a committed follower and I have seen RB, so I make the exception for you. Also I hope it’s okay I did TFP Soundwave? You didn’t specify and he’s like… My favorite soundwave–
Aaaaaaaaaaa thank you so much! You’re too nice to me!


Megatronus(bot! s/o only)
~Despite his demeanor and time in the pits he’s a surprisingly gentle and careful lover.
~Finds it an honor that his love chose him.
~He enjoys casual PDA, quick kisses, hugs, forehelm bumps. Mostly he just enjoys holding your servos.
~However, in certain company, he only allows for quick kisses or a hug, sometimes not even that.
~In other company he’ll keep an arm firmly wrapped around your waist, keeping you to his side. He wants them to know you’re his and that either you or him will kill them if anything happens to either.
~In private he’s prefers the more intimate affections. Such as holding you in his lap, arms wrapped firmly around your midsection, placing gentle kisses to your plating.
~He enjoys getting your opinions on his writings and even practicing speeches in front of you. He’s absolutely overjoyed if you clap for him and he takes all your suggestions and critiques in stride with an appreciative smile.
~Sharing a berth is about the same regardless of your size, he usually recharges on his back with you pulled into his side.
~He does understand, however, if you’re bigger and it’s uncomfortable for you to be pressed into his chassis with pedes hanging of the berth so he’ll compromise and you two will sleep face to face with his arm wrapped around you and legs tangled together.
~He likes dates where you just share energon at your home and talk about your days, but he also enjoys walks.
~Regardless of what you do for your dates, he likes to talk about your days and plans for tomorrow and just general things.
~He is elated to become Conjux with you and takes the whole thing very, very seriously.
~He takes his time in going through it all and, when you reciprocate, he picks you up in an almost crushing hug and swings you around, laughing.
~Unfortunately your relationship is doomed from the start. When the war starts, you grow apart, he’s not the mech you knew and he scares you.
~If you meet again after the war he’ll ask for your forgiveness, but never ask you to take him back. He understands that’s not what you two need. He will also readily understand if you are unwilling to forgive him.

~He’s a bit rougher than he used to be, more likely to do certain things without first asking you.
~He’s wholly against PDA except for servo holding when the situation allows it and maybe a passing hug or two. You can get away with a kiss to the cheek occasionally.
~However in private he is very affectionate, he believes it means more if only you get to see how much he loves you.
~In private he likes to be as gentle as he can, which is surprisingly very.
~He’s slow and careful with every touch, regardless your size or species.
~Even despite his carefulness he’s still a bit rough, he’s got a certain degree of numbness to his servos and, therefore, can’t always gauge how much pressure he’s using.
~He gently demands that you /tell him/ if he’s hurting you, he doesn’t want to and the communication helps him learn how certain pressures feel in his arm instead of his servos.
~His favorite kisses are to the forehelm/head and he likes to gently press forehelms together.
~He adores when you sit in his lap and let him place his chin on your shoulder and arms around your midsection whether you’re bot or human, though if you’re human he’ll either use massdisplacement or hollomatter.
~Sharing a berth is out of the question if you’re human, he doesn’t move much, but if you move and then he moves and he’s just too paranoid about hurting you for that.
~However if you’re a bot and smaller than him, which is more likely, he’ll always kind of wrap himself around you and hold you close to him. It doesn’t matter if your back, front, or side is to him, he will have himself wrapped around you.
~If you’re bigger than him it’s kind of the same thing only it’s a little harder for him to do it and, most of the time, he just ends up laying across your chassis with your legs tangled together. Sometimes he wants you to hold him, though. Only sometimes and he never says it out loud, just kind of pushes his back into you until you get the hint.
~Date nights are a must, they’re always quiet, but rarely the same. He may take a walk with you through the halls and just enjoy each other’s presence in silence or he may plan something with food/energon and music and dancing. It depends on how much time you have together and your moods.
~He always makes sure you get two date nights a week if he can manage it.
~Conjux is all but out of the question for him. He’s afraid of having someone that close to him considering what he’s done and who he is. He doesn’t want you to suffer with him simply because of his own wrong doings.
~You may both sit down and have a conversation about it and come to the conclusion that it could be a possibility in the future, but that is entirely in the air.

~He’s gentle and caring and always wants to be with you when he can.
~He’s very understanding with you, no matter what you’re doing.
~He tries to be as protective of you, to the best of his ability. He would go down fighting for you, not before trying to either run with you or talk them down.
~He likes keeping you in his lap and running his digits through your hair or gently massaging your helm.
~He’s a worrier, so if you’re in field a lot he waits, antsy and impatient, for you to get back.
~If your human he worries about you getting stepped on or seriously injured just being around the ship.
~If you’re bigger than him than he absolutely adores being picked up, held, and cuddled by you. It makes him feel very safe and protected in your arms.
~Also if you’re bigger than him he likes sitting in your lap and playing with your servos.
~His favorite show of affection is gentle forehelm/head touches and kisses.
~He’s not against PDA, but try to keep it to a minimum because he gets super embarrassed.
~Dates with him can either be perfectly planned or a bit spontaneous.
~If he you want to go out and explore the world they’re currently landed on, he turns that into a date quickly. However most of the time he plans his dates with good energon/food, soft lights that resemble candles, and gentle music.
~He likes casual and relaxed conversation during your dates, how your days went, stories from your sparklinghood/childhood, what you’re planning for tomorrow, etc.
~Recharging with him is different depending on the height and species.
~Humans don’t recharge with him. He’s absolutely terrified he will roll over and kill them.
~If the bot is the same height or smaller he faces them and tangles himself in their limbs, pressing their cheekplates together until he’s asleep. Then his helm may fall to their chassis or back away from them.
~If the bot is bigger it depends on how bad his day was, he may demand, very gently, to be held and cuddled, he needs the comfort. Otherwise it’s the same as above, he just wraps one leg around their waist and ends up with his helm to their chassis.
~Conjux is a bit of a scary concept to him, not because he doesn’t love you enough to be Conjux with you, but because he’s honestly afraid to tell you everything about him and he couldn’t imagine being Conjux with you /without/ telling you about his mistakes and secrets.
~He does eventually come clean, slowly, and he’s elated when you simply kiss him, “The past is the past, my sweet. You can’t change it, only learn from it… And you’re doing great.”
~He definitely cries when you become Conjux.

Fortress Maximus
~He’s afraid of how big he is, he’s going to hurt you! This is an especially aggravated fear if you’re human.
~Mostly he likes to keep you on his shoulder, there’s no way you’re bigger than him so even if you’re a bot as well you’re still probably sitting on his shoulders.
~PDA makes him nervous and a bit embarrassed so it’s pretty much just servo holding.
~He won’t fight you if give him a kiss or hug him as long as you warn him about what you’re going to do. If you don’t warn him sometimes he panics and he might throw you.
~If you’re human he’ll straight forget you’re on his shoulder if you stay quiet and you /will/ scare him scrapless if you talk suddenly. He almost screams.
~Also if you’re human he rarely holds you in his servos for very long, only long enough to deposit you somewhere else. He’s scared he’ll drop or seriously injure you.
~He’s not very good at dates, but he tries.
~The first few dates are awkward because he’s so unsure and he’s trying /too/ hard. You have to reassure him that you could just take a walk around the Lost Light and it would be perfect.
~From then he doesn’t try as hard, but he does his best to do things you would enjoy together.
~It takes a long time for him to think about sharing a berth with you and won’t do so until after you’re Conjux. He doesn’t want to let someone that close that might not stay.
~Sharing a berth is out of the question if you’re human, even if he doesn’t move much. He won’t recharge because he’s so nervous about it.
~Sharing a berth, however, is interesting. He’s so big and he takes up so much room you need a /giant/ berth.
~He keeps you on his chassis and holds you close, arms wrapped around your waist.
~He finds it’s easier to recharge with you there and your weight on top of him.
~Conjux is probably the scariest thing about relationships, but the moment he knows you’re the one, he’s going for it. He doesn’t even begin to allow himself to overthink about it, you’re the most important thing in his life.
~He’s crying when you reciprocate, but he’s going to pretend he’s not and don’t say anything he might snap at you! He’s fine!


Optimus Prime
~He’s the leader and a Prime so he doesn’t have a lot of time to spend with you and that absolutely kills him.
~He does his best to at least make an hour a week to be with you and only you. Ratchet does the best he can to make sure he gets that hour.
~He’s not overtly affectionate, he either doesn’t have the time or needs to uphold himself properly.
~He’s not against PDA, however. Just keep it to a low minimum of servo holding and maybe a quick kiss or two, cheek or lips.
~However, in private, he is very, very affectionate.
~He holds you to him and kisses you where he can reach, shoulders, helm, lips, wherever he can get so he can show you how much you mean to him. Even if you’re human he’ll kiss your head a lot, may even use massdisplacement or hollomatter just so he can kiss you everywhere he wants.
~In private he rarely lets you get away from his hold, keeping you against his chassis.
~Dates are nearly impossible, so you can’t expect them much. Even in that hour he tries to make sure he gets a week he won’t plan anything, he doesn’t want it to fall apart and be completely ruined.
~However if he knows you’ll get a chance for a date he’ll make sure it’s simple, dinner and maybe a movie. He might dance with you, he likes to slow dance.
~He doesn’t recharge much so you might be hard pressed to recharge with him. Most of the time you’re forced to drag him to berth or he’ll flat skip recharge.
~If you’re human he won’t even allow you to stay at the base for the night. He loves you, but it’s not safe for you to stay and you have family you need to see. Just be back in the morning.
~If you’re a bot and you /actually/ get him to berth he’ll lazily wrap an arm around you, he can only sleep on his stomach or side, if he’s careful, so, no matter the size of you, you’re usually curled into his side with his arm around you.
~However if you’re smaller than him, similar to Arcee’s size, he may keep his arm off you. He doesn’t want to accidentally hurt you by pulling you into him too tightly.
~He won’t be Conjux with you. End of discussion. This is war and he doesn’t want to commit so much to you for you to just lose him or vice versa. It would be hard enough just to lose you, but to lose you as a Conjux would kill him.
~However, after the war, he would happily become Conjux with you. And by happily I mean he will cry and you’ll swear he’s not a Prime anymore, but Orion Pax again.

~He’s damn hard to read to most people, but never for you. You can read him very well and that’s something he loves about you.
~You find it easy to read his subtle body language and gauge his reactions and you always know how to react in turn.
~You can have full conversations with him and no one understands /how/. There’s nothing on his visor, no mashed audios clips, he’s just standing there and you’re talking. No one understands. That’s how you two like it.
~He’s completely against PDA, especially in front of Megatron.
~He may let you get away with leaning on him.
~If you’re human you can lean into his foot or, if you have the ability, he ignores you as you climb up his body to rest in any spot you fit that’s not dangerous if he moves. He’ll use his tendrils to move you if it’s dangerous.
~He still isn’t overly affectionate in private.
~He mostly likes to just hold you to his chassis, which can get awkward if you’re bigger than him because he’s like… All arm. You somehow make it work.
~He absolutely loves to nuzzle his helm to your helm/head, shoulders, or stomach, always gently. You know he loves it because there’s always a little heart emoji on his visor.
~The closest thing you’re getting to a date is leaning on him while he works and conversing in your own special way. Other than that, he’s just not the dating type. He’d rather just cuddle up in your berth.
~He also likes to tickle you with those damn tendrils, regardless of your species or size.
~You always share a berth, even if your human. He doesn’t move at all so there’s no issue in you getting hurt unless you fall off him and then that’s your problem, not his. If your bot it doesn’t matter what size you are he demands to be the big spoon, it’s easier on you both because he’s 90% lank and arm.
~If you move while recharging sometimes you may wake up with an elbow in the side or in a strange and compromising position. If he’s been awake before you, he has a picture of you.
~He also takes pictures of you constantly; everything is cute. He’s got quite the database of pictures of you, a lot of them are hyper focused on you and, therefore, very aesthetically pleasing.
~He’ll want to be Conjux with you, but he’s a little scared to do it considering the war. He eventually decides that he would rather die a thousand deaths with you in his spark than die even once without you.
~When he disappears your comfort is taken in that you can still feel him in your spark. He’s not dead.


~He’s either extremely understanding or extremely annoyed with you and there is rarely an in between with him.
~Usually if he’s annoyed he just tells you he’s too aggravated to talk right now and he’s going to cool down. That way he never just storms away. Usually you agree it’s a good idea too cool.
~If it’s something like tripping over yourself and therefore tripping him up or tripping off his servo causing him to have to scramble to catch you he’ll just make sure you’re alright and then gently smile at you.
~Generally speaking he’s more likely to take a partner who’s calm, but that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t take a partner that is more rambunctious and ready to party/fight. It just means he’s more likely to get drug out of his comfort zone.
~PDA isn’t something he’s huge on, but if you take his servo or kiss him he’ll return the gesture. He does like to keep you in his lap if he’s sitting though or to be in yours if you’re bigger.
~He won’t let you get too touchy in public, don’t wrap an arm around him he’ll slink out of it and give you a look.
~He gets super embarrassed if you kiss his face in public and will definitely duck so you miss and end up kissing open air.
~If you’re human he likes to keep you on his shoulder, which means he can’t duck! You’re free to kiss his face all over where you can reach and make him a blushing, stuttering mess.
~His dates are generally very, very quiet and always just the two of you.
~He likes candle lights and starry night walks. Conversations come and go easily and there’s never any awkwardness between the two of you.
~Sharing a berth is completely different depending on you and you’re species and height.
~If you’re human he keeps you either against his neck or on his chassis, he doesn’t move so there’s no worries and it won’t be a particularly painful drop if you happen to roll of him yourself.
~If you’re a bot yourself and smaller than him he likes to either be the big spoon, though he’ll let you be the big spoon if you ask, or recharge face to face in a tangle of arms, legs, and chassis. Sometimes you have a bit of trouble separating in the morning.
~If you’re bigger than him he still likes to be the big spoon but he’s far more likely to settle on being the little spoon. He still likes to face you and tangle up together, however sometimes it ends up with him just being on top of you.
~If you move in recharge there’s a chance you might push him off the berth and he’ll never forgive you. (he forgives you by the time you’re out the door of your habsuite.)
~Conjux is /slightly/ scary concept for him. He’s not sure he’ll be the best partner for you, you gently reassure him that he will be the best partner.
~He takes his time with it all, because he wants it to be slow and special and all mean the world to the both of you.
~When he joins the Well of Allsparks you feel it in your own spark and are knocked to your knees and left breathless and lost.

{Rescue Bots}

~He’s actually a lot of fun, even if he can be kind of stiff and a bit heated.
~He likes having you around, you really even him out and keep him level, even if you’re similar to him your presence really just calms him down.
~He’s the leader so that often means you don’t get a lot of alone time so you have to take up to being okay with some PDA, but not too much. He’s got a reputation to uphold and he doesn’t want anyone to think less of you either.
~PDA with him is fairly cautious and sensible; don’t hug him too much, kisses on the lips are short, stop being so cute!
~It’s not that he doesn’t love you and if you /ever/ feel like that’s why he doesn’t show a lot of affection publicly he’ll be more inclined to prove you wrong.
~The real reason he doesn’t show a lot of public affection is because he’s seen what people can make of it and he doesn’t want that for either of you, you deserve better than /that/.
~If you tell him you’d like to show him more affection he would agree, but it’s still not silly or long, awkward affections. Just more kissing, hugs last longer, he’s trying.
~He’s a hot head so sometimes you argue and he rarely backs down, you have to be the one to walk away before things get back. He’s working on that, but it can get hard on both of you.
~Sharing a berth is about the same regardless of your species, it’s size that’ll change it.
~If you’re human or a bot smaller than him he’ll let you recharge on his chassis with an arm lazily wrapped around your waist. Sometimes this changes to him being the big spoon, but he doesn’t much care for spooning so it doesn’t happen often.
~If you’re bigger he will shamelessly sprawl across your chassis but if you take pictures or tell /anyone/ he will never forgive you.
~He’s a sucker for romantic comedies so your dates are often curling up in his lap or holding each other and watching the newest one or even one of your favorites. That’s his favorite date.
~However he does also like dates like those /in/ his romantic comedies and he’ll try to recreate them. Sometimes this goes smoothly, sometimes you feel like maybe, just maybe, you /are/ the romcom itself.
~Heatwave isn’t sure about Conjux until you bring it up one night just before you fall into recharge together.
~”You ever thought about being Conjux with me.” “I…. All the time.” “Good.”
~He can’t believe that just happened. He’s ten seconds from squealing when you start snoring and then he has to keep it on the inside. How dare you do that to him.


~He is just… So excited? About everything you do? He just loves you so much?
~You could just say I love you to him and he’d squeal and wrap you in a bear hug.
~He doesn’t much like to get away from you, practically begging Bee to send you teamed together. The only time he doesn’t beg or even bother to ask is if you can’t split off into teams of two, but instead one.
~He loves it if you sit and watch him train and work out. Though it will eventually dissolve into cuddles and tickling each other after one of you starts to tease the other.
~He is all about PDA, though he knows when enough is enough.
~He loves to hold you to him and have you touching him in any way possible. Whether this be an arm around you or servo holding is dependent on you size and species.
~If you’re a bot and small then him you can find yourself sitting in his arms in a hug or sitting on his shoulders because that’s where he put you and that’s where he wants you.
~If you’re about the same or maybe a little bigger he keeps an arm wrapped around you somewhere, usually around the waist with a servo on your hip.
~He’s into every type of kiss, cheek, bunny, lips, passionate, chaste, just kiss him he loves it and he loves you.
~He won’t let it get to far, kisses are never too long, hugs are never sensual, he knows what’s too far and he doesn’t cross that line.
~He likes to have you on his shoulder, regardless of if you’re bot or human. He just likes having you there.
~Sharing a berth is the same no matter what. He transformers and curls around you with his dino head rested underneath you. That’s just what he likes.
~If you’re human you sleep on top of his head unless it’s deemed unsafe for you.
~If you’re a smaller bot you basically sleep curled into his dino neck, if you’re bigger you’re leaning into him instead.
~You’re pretty much always on one big date and he doesn’t know a lot about dating, so it’s up to you if you go on an actual date. Make sure it’s fun!
~Conjux for him isn’t something he understands or ever thought about so you have to make the moves and explain to him what you’re doing and why.
~He’ll cry once you are Conjux though, he can’t believe someone wants him so much.

Can you make a hc about candys first met with guys parents (except ep 21) ( and sorry for bad english 0.0)

MMMM - this is actually one of the most requested headcanons in my inbox! Even after cleaning it out a few months back, it’s still on top. Haha i’m such an insecure little shit about my headcanons do you guys really like them. Other than that, let me know what you think of the new layout that’s used by @camec.

Nathaniel (Francis and Adelaide)

To be honest, Nathaniel wouldn’t want to introduce Candy to his parents, at all. For obvious reasons, especially with the fact she doesn’t (yet) know about what happens at home, he wouldn’t want for her to meet them. He wouldn’t bring them up unless Candy had initiated a conversation about meeting them. Hesitantly, he’d accept to let her meet them.

- They wouldn’t go anywhere fancy to meet his parents, instead, Nathaniel would take her to his place to meet them. Adelaide is more than willing to bring her into their ‘beautiful household’ and Francis would be well-mannered, but keeping an eye on Nathaniel for anything he does ‘wrong’. In any case, before Candy found out about him being abused, they would be very welcoming towards her.

- Adelaide would be the one starting conversations with Candy. Such conversations being “So, Candy..are there any certain hobbies you’re interested in?” to get a feel on Candy’s personality. Honestly, Adelaide is very logical when it comes to deciphering people like that. Though she doesn’t give off a good vibe, knowing what happens in the house, she already likes Candy after a few hours/conversations they have.

- Francis doesn’t initiate many conversations with Candy, but puts in an effort to get to know her. Some questions like “And how was it meeting Nathaniel? He was behaved, right?” unintentionally hinting that he’s strict towards Nathaniel. He’s more into knowing what Nathaniel does around Candy, than Candy herself, since he wants for Nath to be on his 'best behavior’. Either way, he’s pretty chill around her (for the first time, at least).

- Only if the higher power could take Nathaniel and Candy elsewhere. He’d be nervous. He knows that Candy’s a good person, of course, but he’s so damn tense when he’s around his parents and Candy. He tries to do everything the best he can while she’s around so they don’t 'make a scene’ in front of her. Whether it’s placing the big spoons with the little spoons, he doesn’t want for her to find out (especially when they’re dating, please, no).

- The first meeting ends in high spirits, fortunately. At the end, Nathaniel would let Candy spend the night with him. If she does, he would take a while to fix himself up to tell her about what happens around there. As strange as it’d seem to do so, he already knows it wouldn’t be a good idea to hide it from her forever. Plus, she’s his girlfriend. He trusts her and he would place his trust in her to keep it to herself (and let the arc begin).

- If Candy does reveal his secret, he’d be upset. Upset that he had placed his trust in her not to do anything and she went against his wishes. It’d be no different if they weren’t dating, he’d react the same way. Nath would be soft trying to explain his reasoning behind hiding it (but overall pissed that she revealed his secret, which adds tension on her).

- If Candy doesn’t reveal his secret, he’d be relieved. Eventually, after weeks of being at his house and hanging around, he’d open up. Nathaniel would believe that it’s a lot more logical to wait until he’s ready on his own terms before opening up about it. Then, they could deal with that problem. As for now, he’d wait until things seem too tense to hide it anymore.

Castiel (Jean-Louis and Valerie)

- Candy? Meeting his parents? That’s not his list of priorities, it doesn’t even exist on the list as it is. The farthest he’d go with a girl is to meet his parents which is the last thing he has on his mind in a relationship. He’d never bring them up, ever. Candy would have to be the one telling him that she’d want to meet his parents.

- Castiel wouldn’t be in a good mood about it. He’s pretty distant from his parents because they’re abroad most of the time. He’d take her up to his place and wait for his parents to arrive, since there’s no way in hell he’s going anywhere else to leave his place, he wants to enjoy his time while he still can. Meanwhile, he’d be hanging out with Candy until then.

- Just as he and Candy are doing there own thing and there’s a knock at the door, Castiel’s mood would plummet towards the ground. Really? He wouldn’t think it’s necessary for her to meet his parents, they’re just his parents, it’s nothing (super) special to him. As the door is answered, Valerie would greet him with a hug and just kiss all over his face. This is where the hell really begins.

- Honestly, it wouldn’t take any time for Valerie to notice Candy in the room. She’s very happy and already excited to meet her. “Oh, you must be Candy! It’s so nice to meet you, Cassy talks about you all the time.” unintentionally embarrasses Castiel, all the time. Valerie would engage in starting conversations the most, already asking Candy questions. “So? How’d you meet? How was it, was Cassy well behaved?” are you sure she named him 'Castiel’ because 'Cassy’ seems very apparent in her speech.

- Castiel wouldn’t even try to stop her, he doesn’t want to interact. That’s until Jean-Louis would pull him into the conversations. “Now son, don’t be like won’t take too long,” Jean-Louis would be keeping the peace and tension down with Castiel, all he really wants is to meet his girlfriend and have a nice time doing so.

- Valerie would embarrass the living shit out of Castiel. She’d bring up his childhood memories, past troubles he had, and she even brings out the family album, showing a little Castiel aggressively playing with a rubber duck. Castiel would be in a living hell, he knows he has no way out of this, he doesn’t even try to say anything. Usually a “Mom, stop.” or “Candy doesn’t need to know that..” is the most he’ll say.

- Candy would have a blast, Jean-Louis would try so hard to hold back his laughter at his sons reaction. He wants to be a good example to Castiel, but can he really help it? Jean-Louis would just be enjoying it, sometimes dropping some hints of just how much Castiel has already said about Candy, just to make him that more embarrassed.

- Castiel doesn’t stand a chance. Already after the first meeting, Castiel’s parents really like Candy. Valerie would be more than willing to meet up with her more often or call her on the phone, Jean-Louis is very welcoming for her to come and visit more often as they aren’t around. At some point, Castiel did enjoy some jokes (but not the most of them) and will never admit it was nice to see them. Maybe next time, he won’t be so angsty about it.

Lysander (George and Josiane)

- After a few weeks, so much as a month or two, Lysander would bring up his parents. Just in a small conversation, seeing as Lysander has already seen hers (through the wrath of her father, of course), he’d invite Candy to meet his parents, only if she’d want to.

- The meeting takes place back in his hometown, back on the farmland. Lysander wouldn’t want for his parents to come up all the way into the city and exhaust themselves. Plus, he wouldn’t want for them to come up there anyways, because of all the noise. He just doesn’t want to disturb them, that’s all.

- Honestly, he’d be very happy. Both, because he’s going back home and because his parents are finally going to meet her. He’d give her a warning that his mother is “quite forgetful” and his father has “medical complications” but he’s alright. He’s more concerned if Candy will really like the farmland, depending on her personality towards animals.

- Before meeting up with his parents, Lysander would show Candy that little farmhouse he was in with those bunnies. He’d tell her that “When I was younger, I would almost always be here..this is where most of the bunnies were kept,” goodness he’s just so happy to be back. He’d probably hang out there with the bunnies, until bringing Candy into his parents home.

- Of course, when Josiane first sees Candy, she mistakes her for Rosalya. Josiane is very gentle and kind-hearted, she’s not really a talker, but she loves more company around their 'little quiet’ house. George, on the other hand, is a talker. He’s willing to be the one asking Candy questions, though he might forget what he asked her. Both are very welcoming, already, and would introduce Candy to their home.

- Josiane would talk a lot about Lysander, asking very few questions about herself. Living by her thought of  “If my dear boy, Lysander, is with her…then she must be a very good girl.” She trusts Lysander’s judgement, as much as her husbands, completely. She wouldn’t want to pry in Candy’s business either. She would show her a few pictures of when he was younger and the memories they had in the house until he had moved to the city. Josiane does miss Lysander, but knows he’s just a call away.

- George, again, is a talker. He’d ask Candy about her favorite things to do and trail on and on about what he likes. Not to be prideful, but it’s just what eldery folks do, he could talk for days if he wanted. He’d probably entertain Candy with his little stories of child Lysander and the funny things he used to do around the place. “Did Lysander ever tell you that he’d try to pick up all of the bunny’s around the den? Because oh boy, he really loves them, maybe I could give 'em one?” he loves his skyscraper son.

- Lysander is so happy, just smiling and listening to his parents. He doesn’t get to see them often, as much as he’d love to, but he can’t help but be super loving around them. He’s not embarassed, by the slightest, until George goes like “And have I ever told you how much Lysander would talk about 'cha, Candy? Woowie, that boy could go on for hours if he wanted to!” then he’d just be like 'please, dad, no stop’ inside.

- Leaving would be the hardest part for Lysander and watching him leave would be hard on Josiane. He usually worries about his parents having to be gone for such a while, living alone on a farm (and without Leigh), but he knows they can handle themselves. Josiane loves Lysander dearly and really cares for Candy, even after that one meeting, and hopes that they’ll come again. George would be happy, disappointed that they’re leaving so soon, but this happy old guy is satisfied.

Armin (Arnaud and Victoria)

- He’d be more than willing to introduce Candy to his parents. Seeing as they’re super chill, there’s nothing to worry about introducing Candy to them. He’d be the one to ask her about it, probably a few times, before Candy finally agrees on meeting them.

- Armin isn’t a fancy person, he’s not going to make a reservation at a restaurant for her to meet his parents. No, his house is just the perfect place for that. It’s nice, comfortable, plus he lives there - so he doesn’t have to be the one to leave. Alexy’s excited for his parents to meet his 'best friend’ and keeps on wondering of what his mother will think of her, because of how close they are.

- The house is just top to bottom gorgeous, Victoria being an interior designer (and even my own mother), she knows just how to make the house a beautiful one. Victoria would be very observant of Candy, probably giving her a bad vibe, until she welcomes her with a “So, you’re Candy? Aren’t you just adorable, Armin should’ve introduced you sooner!” indeed, she’s an extrovert.

- Arnaud isn’t much of a talker, he’s probably introverted. But he’s pretty chill, if not, very. He’d just greet Candy with a smile and go “Hey kiddo, welcome to house,” he’d just welcome her and go on with his day. Honestly, he already knows how much of a good person Candy must be for someone like Armin to date her. He’s actually surprised that Armin had a girlfriend, he didn’t suspect it, no offense.

- Victoria wouldn’t take anytime to situate herself and Candy for a little talk. She’d mainly ask about how her and Armin met before already moving onto more sensitive subjects. “Alright, have you guys made out before or not?” she’s just so nonchalant with this type of conversation, it’s so apparent, she’s really willing to talk about anything with her. The conversation would start off slow and then Victoria would move it onto a comedic level, to assure Candy she shouldn’t feel awkward in any way.

- Honestly? Armin would be grinning his ass off, he knew that this was going to be a great meeting. He doesn’t interfere with their conversations, figuring that he’d throw off their 'girl talk’, he’d just hang around with his dad and ask what he’d think of Candy. Arnaud doesn’t have a bad judgement on her, but from what Armin has told him, he’s alright. “I might not know her much, Armin, but she’s a keeper.” what a great dad, making his son’s life easy.

- Victoria wouldn’t embarrass Armin, at all. In fact, she’d keep a low enough voice to tell Candy somethings he’s done in his life so he wouldn’t know. From his energetic behavior as a child to when he was an edgy teen, she’d love to tell him about all the geeky stuff he does, she’d have Candy snorting, for sure.

- After this first meeting, Victoria would end up wanting Candy to come over more often. As for Arnaud, he really doesn’t mind. If his wife is fine with it, then he’s fine, he’s not going to make things difficult (nor does he want to, he’s a peacemaker). In other words, everything’s chill, and Victoria would want for her to come back more.

Kentin (Giles and Manon)

- After a few months of dating the thought of meeting his parents only just hit him when Candy mentioned hers. Honestly, he’s never thought about it. Not in a bad way, he’s just never put thought into her meeting his parents. To be honest, he’s very up to it and would ask Candy what she thinks before he invites her.

- Manon would be so excited, she’d be talking her mouth off to Giles about it. “Ken is finally going to introduce us to his girlfriend! Aren’t you excited, hun?” Giles, honestly, is alright with it but really isn’t into it. Of course he’d like to meet her but he’s just not into this sort of thing, he’d just want to know some things about her and move on.

- As soon as she’s brought through that door, she’d be death-hugged by Manon. No escape, Manon is just so happy to see her, Kentin would laugh. Maybe that’s where he got that mad strength from, other than military camp. “I’m so excited you’re finally over! Ken has been keeping you away for so long!” She calls him Ken, she has the privilege. She’d wait for Candy to get her things off before inviting her into the living room to talk.

- Manon takes no time to ask her questions, of course, like any mother would. “It’s so great to have you here, Candy! I’ve been wondering when we could meet, but it’s very nice to see you.” She’s very well mannered (and energetic) towards Candy as Giles just observes from the sidelines, not being as much as a talker, unlike his wife.

- Giles is pretty alright with Candy, trusting his wife’s judgement about how much Kentin cares for Candy and all.  " has Kentin been acting? Good, I presume?“  He’d inquire her about Kentin and his behavior, making sure he’s been good to her. Because, if not, he won’t hesitate to fix that for her. He’s in a pretty good mood, which just makes Kentin a lot less nervous about him.

- Kentin is in good spirits, too, and is just glad his father is in a good mood. Manon would offer Candy some sweets and would end up over stuffing her with cookies and desserts, Kentin just likes watching his mother interact with Candy. He’s just very proud that he’s his girlfriend and he hopes that Candy is, too.

- The conversation doesn’t last very long, until Manon invites Candy into their kitchen and try to bake. Whether Candy is a baker or not, Manon would be happy to help her around the kitchen and just make her some desserts to take back home. Giles would have to warn Manon not to over-stuff Candy on the first meeting, making a few dad jokes.

- Manon would (again) death hug Candy before she leaves, though she doesn’t mean it. Manon already liked her before she met her, knowing her from middle school when 'Ken’ would talk about her, all the way to when 'Kentin’ would (finally) date her.

- Kentin would ask more for his father’s opinion on her, than his mothers because it’s so apparent on how she feels, Giles would say something like “Well, your mother is right. Your Candy, is a keeper.” As soon as he pats his shoulder, Kentin would just give himself a victory fist when he looks away. He’s so proud.

- At the end, the meeting ends in high and good spirits. Manon already asking if Candy could come back again and Giles just giving her his goodbyes, Kentin won’t hesitate the next time if Candy wants to see them again. He could only imagine how much better it could get.
