"POODLES ARE FROO FROO DOGS!!"

“THEY CAN’T DO ANYTHING!”

“THEY’RE SO BORING!”

“PUFFY LITTLE SHOW DOGS!”

“THEY’RE JUST LAME COUCH POTATOES AND THEY’RE DUMB!”

Poodles are one of the most versatile dog breeds. They were bred to be water retrievers. The “froo froo show cut” that is often seen, actually serves a purpose to cover vital organs and joints to keep them warm in the water, without being too heavy to weigh them down and cause them to sink. The dogs shown here are doing the following: retrieving game (what they were bred for), agility, dock diving, and lure coursing.

BTS’ Erogenous Zones/How To Turn Them On (Based on Astrology)

(Once in a) Blue Moon by clarkoholic and skywardsmiles

Stiles and Derek are getting along, but they’re not a family, and they’re sure as hell not mates. Christ, they’re basically just two stupid guys who happened to get pregnant because of a full moon and sheer dumb luck.


The Lighthouse Keeper by tugela54

On a rural island just off Alaska’s northern Inside Passage, stands a centuries old lighthouse - the perfect sanctuary for its keeper to hide when the moon is full, to burn and rage through its cycle with the townsfolk being none the wiser.

But then a new resident comes to Beacon Harbour – a bright-eyed young student chasing an elusive whale species – and all of a sudden those thick stone walls seem paper thin…

The Nearness Of You by triggeringthehealing

College is an experience that’s different for everyone. Of course, Stiles dives right into the fray. Having already made friends before he started, he’s pulled into the college’s student parliament, the nightclub at the dorms, and – most importantly – into a dorm room with all his friends right next doors. That includes the elusive, tall, dark, and mysterious Derek Hale. And maybe a few too many poetic descriptions that Stiles absolutely doesn’t have from Harlequin romances. They’re Isaac’s, okay, he just happens to share a room with him and Scott. And the bathroom. Which they also share with Derek, and it’s not going to be a problem at all. Featuring meddling friends and siblings, college shenanigans, fancy ballrooms, and curly fries.

Drabble Prompt: “Are you asking me to marry you with a plastic ring?“

Pairing: doctor!Jensen x Reader

Requested by: @starswirlblitz


Are you ridiculous? Yes. Are you shameless? Hell yes. Do you care anymore? Fuck no.

You’re patiently waiting for Dr. Jensen Ackles, your son’s pediatrician, to come strolling into the exam room. The man is too damn handsome for his own good.

Your son Max has had an earache for a couple of days now, you wouldn’t know it by looking at him though. If you were being honest, he doesn’t really need to be checked out by a doctor.

There’s a pretty good chance his earache will clear up within a day or two. You’re definitely lying to yourself, for an excuse to see Jensen. It’s pretty pathetic but you’ve made your peace with it.

Do you have any posts/tips for studying effectively for semester finals?

My best tip is to target your study for the exam you’re taking. 

So what does that mean? 

1. Practice Past Exams. 

There’s no point in memorising notecards or making study guides if you can’t tailor the content you’ve learnt to answer the question at hand. The short answer to the masses of students who say something to the effect of, ”I don’t understand why I only got X grade when I studied for 14701863 hours” is that “you failed to answer the question”. So get familiar with the type of questions in the exam, make sure you’re learning content that relates to said questions, and then understand how to command what you’ve learnt into an answer that addresses the question. 

An easy way to do this is to grab a marking guide/ your syllabus and physically tick the relevant points/words/concepts you’ve included in your practice answer. You’ll be surprised - sometimes you think you’ve answered the question, when in reality, you haven’t. 

2. Get a basic ‘birds eye view’ of the course before diving into the detail. 

Don’t get caught up on little details. Understand the broad concepts that are examinable. Once you’ve got a working understanding of all of that, go back and fill it in with the detail (e.g. examples, case studies, specific applications of a formula). Why? The art of diminishing returns. Moreover, the first 50% of the marks allocated to a question are the easiest to get. 

3. Do what you need to do, for you. 

Look, just because you didn’t study from day 1 - day 100 doesn’t mean you’re going to fail. It’s not all or nothing; there’s a huge gap between an A+ and an F. Arguably those with that ‘fatalistic, catastrophizing mindset’ are on a one way track to demotivation town. 

So if pulling an all nighter is how you study, then pull that godamn allnighter. If you’re the type to wake up early to study, then set your godamn alarm for 5am. If you need to rest and recouperate and spend a good 12 hours on tumblr procrastinating, then do it. 

You’re not going to fail just because you don’t have the fancy notes or stationery your friend does. You’re not going to fail just because your friend studied for 4 hours last night while you marathoned gilmore girls. 

Stand proud of your own study techniques that have ensured your success to this point. 

+ on a side note, If you’ve fallen behind, here’s a few tips here. 

Here’s a few tips from around the community: 

All the best for your finals anon! 

Tragedy

Listen its 2am I’ve had a fuck load of cereal I’m weak.

• The bakusquad was out shopping for snacks. The one they were most excited about was this huge ass pack of doritos. Like the thing was huge.

• They’re walking and kaminari is cradling it like a huge baby and its very weird but no one says anything.

•They’re about go cross the road when disaster strikes.

• Some eighth graders run past them and bump into kamianri really hard and the bag of doritos goes flying.

• Now this was probably like the last bag this size the store had and everyone was super attached to it. So of course they dive into the road to save it.

• First is Mina she manages to knock it up a bit with the back of her hand.

• Then Kirishima bats it towards Sero who then hits it towards bakugou who couldnt Care less about this stupid snack but catches it on instinct.

• I am telling you these four kids just lay there on the road with their hearts beating out of their chests because they decided a pack ofdoritos was worth more than their lives.

• Bakugou just. Leaves he doesn’t even yell at them he’s done at this point.

Bonus

• One of the eighth graders got it on video slowed it down then uploaded it to YouTube.

• You’d think they’d be embarrassed but they just refer to it as ‘the epic dorito save’

COLLEGE AU PT. 2

delicate transitions by Marishna

If Stiles was honest he was shocked as shit when his hot and smart TA with a sharp-witted, dry sense of humor and a model’s body agreed to go out with him. He felt like his lips were tripping over themselves to get the words out but he must have made some sort of sense because Derek ducked his head with a smile and agreed.


checking him out by Marishna

He was back.

Tall, dark, and broody was back on his floor for the third Friday night in a row… with a partner. Of course TDB would have a gorgeous, blonde girlfriend.


Illuminate by dragon_temeraire

Erica convinces Derek to go to an acapella performance with her. Things go better than he could have ever expected.


not really casual by bibliosexual

He might be down for casual stuff, theoretically—in fact, he kind of expected he would be, and he’d even started down that path by making out with a random girl during orientation and then a different random girl later that same night at the freshman bonfire—except that then he walked into Biology on the first day of classes and there was Derek, and suddenly no one else looked half as interesting.

It was just another typical Friday night in the tower.

When you weren’t sent on missions, you liked curling up on your favorite couch with a book and a blanket draped over your lap. This evening, you were reading Clint’s worn out copy of The Return of the King when you heard the door open. You looked up to see the love of your life padding into the room with his leather-bound sketchpad tucked under his arm. Steve was clad in a form fitting black v-neck and some navy blue sweats but he was still easily the most gorgeous man you’ve ever laid eyes on.

“Hey.” you hum as he makes his way towards you, dipping low enough to give you a quick peck on the lips.

“Hey.” he answers in a low voice and smiles. “Busy?”

“Not really.” You sit up, placing the book down on the coffee table. Even though the couch was big enough to seat you both comfortably, Steve settled close to you and brought your feet up to rest on his lap. He began to stroke your legs over your soft blanket and you sighed at the comforting touch. “That feels nice.”

“Yeah?” Steve smiles bashfully before taking his sketchpad. He gives it a thoughtful look before handing it to you hesitantly. “I want to show you something…” you note the sudden change in his tone. He sounded a mixture of shy and anxious.

Mitsunari levels up

Okay first:

Is this bun trolling? Because there is no way that he can weasel out of being that close and “not knowing” what he’s doing to my a maiden’s heart. 

Stop your lies, Mitsunari!

Not about to be outdone by a mere dog, Mitsunari has been stealth leveling for a couple of events now, and has gone from someone who wouldn’t touch the Lover’s Guide with a stick, to having read a small section of it and putting it into practice, to daring to make demands of his liege lord, for his lady’s sake Ieyasu’s influence? at the risk of being cut down.

All of that brings us to this:

See that quote at the bottom? Cute. Apparently Mitsunari gets reincarnated as an assassin in the Bakumatsu period, because he will absotively posilutely kiss you while you’re sleeping, like it’s nothing.

It turns out that Mitsunari is a muttsuri type– a person who seems calm and collected, but is a closet freak. You can think of him as similar to Masamune, who is also muttsuri, but they go about it in different ways.

First, we have a funny scene where Mitsunari is still in the early stages of figuring out what exactly it is that he considers alone time with you. 

For him, it’s only natural that it would include reading. He’s been alone, socially, for most of his life, so he’s still not used to asking for other people’s opinions. 

In his eyes, he is showing you his worth by providing the two of you with quiet time to read books that he thinks you will find helpful. He is also lounging around in the sun with you, while he does it.

A defenseless Mitsunari. Lounging on the engawa. In the sun.

Why you are sitting there reading and not yukadon-ing him, I don’t know– but here comes Sakon, so maybe it’s best if he doesn’t see you flying through the air:

Poor Sakon. 

He’s the Shigezane of Hideyoshi’s men, always getting pushed to the side. Before Sakon can say “Senpai, notice me!” Mitsunari offers to teach him using the thickest set of books in his collection, knowing that Sakon’s not on that education stuff.

Mitsunari uses Book Learnin’!
Sakon is stunned!
Sakon uses Flee!
Mitsunari Levels Up!
Mitsunari learns Gloat!

anonymous asked:

Flintwood with #3 please!

Thanks for the request! <3  Want one?

Prompt #3: “Of course I’m in love with you. Why do you think I risked my life to save your sorry arse?”

Oliver Wood had always dreamt about Quidditch. He dreamt about winning, and he dreamt about the perfect strategies. Some nights he was in the match, fighting tooth and nail to protect the goal, while other nights he was merely an observer at a game, whooping and booing in the stands (those dreams were just as invigorating). Sometimes it was hard to tell if he was dreaming at all. Losing while asleep stung just as badly as it did while awake, and his moonlit wins sent a grin hurtling across his face as if they were real. 

Wood had always dreamt about Quidditch–but never quite like this.

Lately, his dreams had been plagued by the Slytherin Captain’s face. Sure, he’d dreamt of Marcus Flint in the past–as was to be expected of Wood’s most challenging foe–but never in such rapid succession or in such vivid detail. Gryffindor hadn’t played Slytherin in months and likely wouldn’t again until the final match, yet Flint was all Oliver could think about. He was starting to wonder if he was losing his mind until he came to a simple conclusion: Marcus Flint was part of the thrill of the game.

Of course, Quidditch needed no extra assistance when it came to thrills; every match came with its own lifetime supply of racing hearts and pumping blood. But Marcus Flint had been his adversary for so long that Oliver had come to equate the adrenaline of Quidditch with Flint himself. It was a natural association to make, Wood rationalized, but the anticipation of their next encounter made him restless and unable to sleep. He itched for the rush of facing off against the Slytherin captain–even seeing him in the hallways made Wood’s heartbeat accelerate–and the desire to best him became nearly all-consuming.

When the Slytherin team marched onto the pitch a few minutes into Gryffindor’s practice, Oliver threw his head back with a groan. His teammates touched the ground, and he joined them after a few colorful swears. “Flint…” he said warningly.

Miserable Lester, Part 28: Makin’ Their Way Downtown

In an anticlimactic downer plot twist on par with the revelation that Mabeuf wouldn’t use the money in Valjean’s purse and so just continued to starve to death slowly, it turns out that Gavroche only harbored his younger brothers in the giant elephant statue for a single night. He intended to look after them longer, telling them to meet him back at the elephant later when he left on street urchin business the following day, but they went out and got lost, or were taken in by a traveling circus, or captured by human traffickers, or picked up by the police and thrown into whatever appalling horror you had instead of the itself-pretty-appalling foster care system in Olden France (Oliver Twist-type workhouses for children? orphanages? Fantine grew up in an orphanage, right? I don’t get the sense her childhood was pleasant, but at least she seemed to have turned out all right prior to Tholomyes deadbeat dadding it back to affluent society and leaving her and Cosette to fend for themselves). Or hell, who knows, maybe they both got run over by a cart and died. All the realistic options here are kinda grim and depressing, so until further notice I am just going to pretend that these two little boys were abducted by kindly alien explorer-scientists and raised by them, like reverse Clark Kents or space Mowglis or something.

“I can dive,” Sophia said. “Do you know what it feels like when you dive?”

“Of course I do,” her grandmother said. “You let go of everything and get ready and just dive. You can feel the seaweed against your legs. It’s brown, and the water’s clear, lighter toward the top, with lots of bubbles. And you glide. You hold your breath and glide and turn and come up, let yourself rise and breathe out. And then you float. Just float.”

The definition of home (1/2)

AN: Like I said - part one (and the smaller part) of this two-shot for Mari’s birthday. Probably going to finish this tomorrow.
Also, no beta - there might be some mistakes.

Pairing: KanaMari (Were you really expecting anything else?)


„Mari.“

Mari wakes up to someone gently calling her name and poking her cheek. But she isn’t ready to leave dreamland just yet, so Mari turns around, dragging the sheets with her to hide under them.

“Come on, Mari.” The person giggles. Mari feels a tug on her blanket. Gripping it tight, Mari tries to fight off the attack. But once her ‘opponent’ decides to play unfair by tickling her, she has no chance of winning.

“No! St- Stop it!” She rolls over onto her back to escape. The second she feels the mattress dip though, she knows that that strategy is bound to be a failure. “Kanan!”

The tickling stops and two strong hands wrap around her wrists, effectively pinning her down and holding her in place.

“Kanan, please!”

Mari is still laughing but stops when a pair of lips touch hers ever so gently. But as sudden as the kiss happened it ends again.

Opening her eyes, Mari is met with the most beautiful purple eyes she can imagine, looking down at her with so much love that she thinks she might still be dreaming. The shy smile that accompanies them makes the picture even more perfect and for a second Mari forgets how to breathe.

When they discover their s/o is scared of butterflies

This one was a hard for me because I love butterflies!  I’m literally that person who has butterfly necklaces and rings and earrings and shirts, etc.  I hope you like it though! I tried really hard! :( 

Originally posted by thekpopquartet

Mark

 He might be taken aback at first.  When he initially sees the way you ducked hurriedly out of the way when a butterfly fluttered by a little too close, he doesn’t notice the winged creature right away.  Instead he might jump at the sudden motion and just blink at you with slightly wide eyes.  But when he asks what’s wrong and you answer him that you hate butterflies because they’re scary and too up in your business, this guy is going to laugh.  Not in the ‘I’m making fun of you way’ but rather the ‘good lord you are adorable’ kind of way.  He’ll think it’s cute the way you shy away from them and will wordlessly steer you away from them.  Mark is the kind of guy that will keep an eye out for the critters in the future and try to put himself between you and them all without you noticing.  It’s his own quiet way of protecting you without being over the top.  “Don’t worry about them, babe, I won’t let them get close to you.” (insert cute grin)

JB

 He might be a bit dumbfounded, honestly.  He’s going to look at the butterfly that’s sitting on the park bench he was headed over to with you and then at you standing there glaring at it and refusing to move any closer.  Confusion, perplexity, 404 Not Found Error.  It’s a butterfly.  It’s not a bee or anything he might think is scary.  I feel like Jaebum is the type to ask a lot of questions.  ‘Why are you afraid of them?’ ‘when did this start?’ ‘blah, blah, blah,’ He’s a fixer, so he might try to get you to overcome your fear of butterflies.  It might start with small things like fake butterflies and videos of them.  If he saw progress it would definitely encourage him to step up his game, however, if you’re reaction is anything like mine with spiders (i can’t even look at them on a tv screen without flinching and freaking out) then he’ll definitely stop.  Above all else, you are his priority and your happiness is all he wants.  He’s going to accept you no matter what, even if he is stubborn and wants to help in his own way.  “Butterflies?  Really, jagi?” “They’re scary okay!” (cute amused chuckle and tight hug) “whatever you say, babe.”

Jinyoung

 He’s another one that will initially be very surprised and a little bit off kilter with the new information.  Not in a bad way, though!  Jinyoung, for all his bravado, is a super caring person.  He’s not known as the mother of GOT7 for nothing.  He won’t force you to change how you feel about them, either.  I think Jinyoung would just accept it as a part of who you are.  But, this IS Jinyoung, so expect him to tease you a bit about it.  He does it in the most loving way possible, but no worries if the teasing really bothers you, because he’ll stop immediately.  He’s a very conscientious person.  Like Mark, he’ll find your fear of butterflies to be really endearing.  He also strikes me as super cheesy, so if he starts saying things like ‘who needs butterflies anyway?  You’re way prettier!’ don’t be surprised.  “Aww, jagiyah, are you afraid of butterflies?” *frantic nodding* *hugs you closely* “Don’t worry, I won’t let the mean butterflies get you” (cue arm slapping)
