Reasons to love Claire Novak Part 1... (10x09, 10x10, 10x20, 11x12)

1. She called Cas a “Douf” (which, love him, he is).

2. She agrees with Dean that ketchup is a vegetable.

3. She prayed to Castiel every night (just like Dean in Purgatory). Cas, you really need to get better at answering prayers!  

4. She survived gods-knows-what in foster homes and group homes. She says Randy was there for her when no one else was, when things got bad, and they got “real bad”. And Randy was a douche-bag.

5. She surivived Randy selling her, underage, as a sex slave to pay his gambling debts. Did I mention Randy was a douche-bag? 

6. She survived seeing Mark-of-Cain Dean’s murder spree (including a very dead Randy) and she worked through her issues with it and learned how to trust Dean again.  

7. Cas took her Dad away from her, he wears her dead Dad’s face, but she learned to trust him too. (She’s a resilient, brave kid). 

8. Angels murdered Claire’s parents and that would seriously skew your perspective on the world. But, Claire is still trying to hunt things and save people. (Cas possessed her Dad, then the archangel who smote Cas sent Jimmy Novak to Heaven. Her mother was killed by a Grigori).

9. She already knew how to pick-pocket, but she learned about credit card hacking and scamming from Sam.

10. She secretly loves the Grumpy Cat Cas got her at “The Hot Topical” for her birthday, just as much as she openly loves the gun Dean (temporarily) gave her.

11. Her Mum died in her arms. No kid should have to go through that. 

12. She wears fierce over-done eye-makeup, which says “F-you”.

13. Sam calls Claire Cas’ family.

14. She sasses Dean good - “Eat me, Hasslehoff!”, “Never seen it, not a fan!”, “You seem pretty old.”

15. She names Jody’s place “a half-way house for Wayward girls”.

16. She asks Dean to keep an eye on Cas, because “He’s been through enough”.

17. Her entire face during Jody’s dinner-table sex-talk.

18. Her struggle to fit in with Jody and Alex, because she feels like an outsider, because she’s got abandonment issues (and why wouldn’t she, her parents both left her).

19. Her instinct for hunting. She was right about monsters at her school, before Jody, Alex, Sam and Dean took it seriously.

20. She can be sulky, stubborn, wayward and even mean (can’t we all) but she’s got a heart of gold underneath it all and she’s trying.

21. She may fight with Alex but she sticks up for her when it counts.

22. She’s a fighter. She’s had it tough, really tough, but she picks herself up and keeps going. 

23. She solemly swears not to hunt like a dumbass.

24. She’s learning to love her found family. And when you’ve been really, truly, badly hurt, loving again is hard.

Oh, to the pressed anons that just popped in my inbox claiming “friends”… Lololololol. Not today, Satan. NOT TODAY. 

Let me sum y’all up right quick. 

My girl’s leg sprawled across C like that? That’s not friendly.

You know what else isn’t friendly? 

C’s made it his business to have his arm behind her back. My girl has his arm trapped behind her and he cares not. His arm is her body pillow, essentially. How about that? That’s not friendly. 

You know what else isn’t friendly? They’re like Twister come to life. You don’t get that wrapped up in someone if you’re just… friends. Do you see all of the layers of entanglement? 

They’re not just leaning on each other, ala KJA. The lean is one thing. It’s very clear the difference. 

L and C… 

They are freaking tangled and wrapped up in each other, like, how did it even happen? 

He’s got an arm cushioning her between her back and the couch, he’s got a hand woven between two of her arms resting on her chest, she has a leg strewn across his lower body, They are forehead to forehead. Totally leaning in to each other. They… You don’t even rest your hand on people’s chests like that if… Umm… Do you think that hand position would be… Her chest is the home to his hand. His lower body is the home to her leg. Listen… 

This is called an intimacy clinic. Beyond a clinic. You can’t even… I mean… Whew. Friends? Oh, Bitter!Anons. I’m sorry you’re grumpy, but… Lmfaoooooo. Friends? Whew. Good luck to y’all. 

Friends don’t… look like this. Bitterness is ugly.

Full to the Bone - Part I

was in the mood to write a threesome and this little story was born! a huge thanks to both @howtobangyourmonster and @littleprincessloona for their monster suggestions when i asked for them! i hope they (and all of you!) enjoy this little orc girlfriend x reader x naga boyfriend lovefest! as usual, part one is sfw. part two will not be!

You hear speak of it all afternoon - the hunting party has brought back a beast, captured by pure chance while tracking deer deep within the mountainside. The men and women who stop by your shop for bread and pastries titter endlessly about the find, and though you try to ignore the gossip, it’s difficult to avoid overhearing their conversations.

“It’s quite beautiful, I’ve heard.”

“Covered in jewels, did you see?”

A trill of laughter. “And little else, apparently. Can you imagine?”

Defenestrate anonymity, I'mma own my words. Long ago I heard a quote. I don't recall exactly where it was from, but I do recall the quote itself with perfect clarity. "Work until your idols are your rivals." And while I don't see you as a rival, and never did. We have very little crossover in our core content. I've always looked up to you as an artist, and still do even if I'm arguably on a comparable level now.

thanks man, wow! this blew my mind, believe it or not…Y'know. you’re one of the hardest working guys I know. and we both may have different subjects but i, too, have learned a lot from you.

isn’t the megaman fan community somethin else. you and a couple others were right there when I first started posting art online. that’s wild..!!!

Stay crispy cool, man! ✨💯

Did anyone else’s notice in Mark’s first livestream how he said…

“In all my years, I know a trap when I see one. And this *shows EXIT sign down the hall*, yeah, that’s a goddamned trap. You really going to fool me into thinking there’s an exit over there?”

Remember “A Date with Markiplier”?

If you choose the “EXIT” choice, you get stuck in an endless loop because of our little favorite boi…

Mark does know a trap when he sees one, because he’s fallen for that trap before.

Overrated First Year Advice

Disclaimer: I don’t mean to discredit the posts that have these suggestions in them… However, I know that for people going into first year university, it can be stressful seeing pages and pages of “must-dos” and feeling like you have to do them all. As always, different things work for different people! 

Talking to Profs 

  1. Getting to know profs personally. If you don’t feel comfortable talking to profs personally, don’t feel like you have to. In upper years, it can be really valuable to know profs for recommendations, etc. but in first year this is less important. Profs also don’t usually mark your work in first year, so you don’t need to suck up to them for good grades. 
  2. Going to office hours every week. Going to office hours can be very valuable if you have questions about the course or an assignments. However, I see a lot of posts telling students to go every week even if they don’t have a question. You don’t need to do this unless you want to! Often times, profs will even request that you talk to your TA before them.
  3. Emailing the prof if you miss class. Unless you go to a very small school, the prof is not going to notice if you miss class. You don’t need to email them telling them why you were absent, you can just go to a different section of the lecture or get the notes from someone. (If you have labs/tutorials/seminars, the same does not apply!! Email your TA.) 

Studying and Grades

  1. Starting to study for tests six weeks in advance. This is one piece of advice that always baffles me. The semester is only 12 weeks long (usually), so if you have a quiz in week 6, you can’t start studying for it much before week 4 or 5. Also, there is no way you will retain the finer details of things if you learned them 6 weeks before writing the test. 
  2. Guaranteeing a 4.0. I see a ton of posts telling students how to guarantee a 4.0 average or straight As. But honestly, as much as you do all of the readings and go to lectures and follow all of the studyblr advice out there, you can still get a TA who won’t give any mark higher than an 80. Just try your best and know that even though getting high marks is great, it is not the only indicator of success in uni. 
  3. Sitting in the front of the class. This is not a necessity. A lot of people post that if the prof can see your face and remember you, you will get better grades. However, in first year, the prof doesn’t mark your papers usually and even if they did, your paper doesn’t have a photo of you on it. Also, they teach so many classes I doubt they just naturally remember the first three rows of each one and no one else. Just sit where you are comfortable and can pay attention and see, and you will do fine. 
  4. Choosing your major in high school or based on what job you think you will get. If you think you want to major in something and then it turns out you hate it, that is fine! Your major should be a subject you are passionate about and can get good grades in, not something that you chose in high school or will “guarantee” you a good job (although, its also okay if your major is all of the above). 
  5. Taking full notes on a topic before the lecture. If you are going to the lecture with a ton of info already, it is easier to get distracted or to feel like you don’t need the lectures at all. Instead, take notes in the lecture and then supplement them with notes from readings or bonus material rather than the opposite way. 

Textbooks

  1. Buying textbooks online. I definitely think that buying textbooks online can be a good idea, but sometimes it is just easier to buy them from the bookstore. For example, if you are not sure if a site is legit/the book will come in time/its the right edition, etc. it might just be safer to get it in person or buy it used on campus from an upper year. (Remember, you can probably sell it next year!) 
  2. Buying old editions of textbooks. If you have the two books side by side and can tell that they are very similar, go for it. But often times, two different editions are totally different and can just mess you up. Science and math books often have different practice questions, and even in social sciences and humanities, the content can change drastically in one edition. 

Lifestyle/Personal

  1. Buying extra storage and furnishing for your dorm. Make sure you do a virtual room tour or talk to someone about the layout before you buy a ton of storage. Most dorm rooms that I have been in have a ton of storage (mine has a closet, a huge desk, shelves to the ceiling, a dresser, and cabinets for extra storage). You don’t want to show up with way too much stuff. 
  2. Keeping 1000 things in your backpack. If you live on campus, you don’t actually need to carry every single thing on earth in your bag. It will get annoying carrying around a heavy backpack while walking. Unless you are going to the library for a huge study sesh or can’t make it back to your room all day, pack lightly! 
  3. Avoiding wearing “freshman clothes”. No one cares what you are wearing. People often wear pajamas or just track pants and a baggy t-shirt to class or the caf. If you like dressing up, that’s great! But don’t feel like certain clothes are off limits. 
  4. Living at home meaning you aren’t independent. Posts that look down upon living at home or going to your home university are garbage posts in my opinion. Being able to live away from home is a privilege, and many people are not financially, physically, or emotionally able to do that. If you are living at home, do not feel bad about it. You are still an adult and you are still independent. 

Hope this helps reduce some rising freshman anxiety! And remember, if you do want to follow any of the original tips, that is okay too. :) 

Catholic Dating

I have been debating about whether or not I should make this post for a while now, but I feel it is extremely important and it needs to be said. So here it goes. 

Lately I have been seeing so many people talk about their number one aspect about a person they want in their future spouse. And for a majority of people their number 1 trait in a future spouse is that they are a practicing Catholic. Nothing else really matters, because if they are a practicing Catholic they can’t be bad right? Wrong. I used to be one of these people. I used to think that as long as I followed God I would find a good Catholic man and all would be right in the world. Well I did find a Catholic man. He was a nice, practicing catholic, and he followed all of the church’s teachings! Exactly what I was looking for in a man! But what I didn’t realize was that just because someone is Catholic and follows the church’s teachings that doesn’t mean that they are a good match for you or anyone else. What I went through in that relationship and now still struggle with has changed me as a person and changed the way I look at relationships. 

You see, the person that I was dating I had every intention to marry. I cared about him and I loved him and I thought he felt the same about me. He sure seemed like he did. We were making plans for the future and talking a lot about how we were going to raise a beautiful catholic family. A family large enough to be considered a small army. I thought things in my relationship were good because he would always tell me he would always be there to take care of me, to give me everything I needed and more, that he would be right there with me as we searched for God together. He really did make me think he cared – and maybe he did, but the way he went about it was wrong. Every so often he would make some sort of remark about how if I ever did something to cross him or offend him then he would take our kids (if by that point in our lives we were married and started a family) and I would never see him or my kids again. He would gain full custody of them and raise the kids to hate me and not know me. Or he would do things that made me extremely uncomfortable, but when I asked him to stop doing them he would become offended and respond with “I’m only doing this because I love you. How else am I supposed to show you I love you and care about you??” So I wouldn’t just look past these things. Or if I wasn’t comfortable with sharing a certain thing that happened to me in my life, something that I hadn’t even shared with my best friend, something I was so extremely ashamed of and couldn’t even admit to myself I would be guilted into sharing that deep dark secret with him. I was told that it was because he ‘cared about me’ he wanted to help me ‘get over it.’ Or he would find something I never thought about myself and then make me self conscious. Once he found out my shoe size (I have big feet. It happens) he wouldn’t stop talking about how large my feet are and he would tease me about it. When I asked him to stop he shot back with “It’s just playful banter. I’m always going to love you and your ginormous feet.” He would also make me feel bad about my relationship with God. He would make back handed comments about how “I don’t really care about my relationship with God because I am not trying enough.” and “I just need to pray more and get to his level of relationship with God.”

This isn’t how relationships work. Relationships are meant to build each other up. Your spouse is there to walk with you, to guide you, to become a better person through God. God loves us and he wants what is best for us. Just because he is Catholic does not mean that he is Mr. Right. So when you are all looking for your potential spouse I beg you to add some more criteria to your list. Yes being catholic is important, but so is love and respect for you. 

And with that I will leave you with the overused, but so very true bible verse: 

“Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, it is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.”
