I have a theory about this photo.
It may be nothing, but still.
Okay so, this is to the fangirl’s eye, Antisepticeye. But some people are just saying that it’s Jack wearing earrings. While that’s probably the more logical answer, I have theories!!! Okay so first of all, Jack NEVER wears earrings. And yes you could say that he misses them, but does he really? If you take a look at the description of the photo, you will see that there’s no sign of enthusiasm. Usually, if you take a look at the other ones that I’ve taken screenshots of he shows a form of enthusiasm, or just something to tell people that he’s not being too serious. A lot of the times he uses some form of punctuation, which he’s not doing in his recent photo. Okay second, the face he’s making. I took screenshots of a few, but if you go to his Instagram you’ll see that he’s never posted a photo quite like this one. It’s almost like he’s going insane. The only times he’s ever posted a photo remotely close to his recent is when Anti came in October. And also, the only time that Jack has posted a photo of him with earrings on is when the Anti takeover was close! Coincidence? I think not! And Jack posted a Detention video today. Which is the only series at the moment with Anti in it. SOOO, my theory may be WAY off, but I wanted to share it with you! Let me know if you agree!

voltron prompt ??

- lance and the Crew™ go out to space for some ass kicking space robot fighting amirite 

 - they’re fighting and keith and lance are underground to infiltrate a secret galra base on a planet 

- keith is like “wait let’s explode this thing” and holds up dynamite and lance is like ‘i think the heck not?? that’s a terrible idea' 

- keith sighs as lance explains it’d probably kill them and not to mention shiro could be inside the secret base or innocent prisoners 

 - keith leaves the explosives behind a crate and they go to find the control to take out the power 

- they take out the power and they decide to split up between two prison wings to free the prisoners 

- lance opens all the cells as the power is out, instructing them to go to the opposite wing and find the red paladin, as he’ll take them to the surface where allura is waiting with the castle 

- lance finishes getting the prisoners from his wing evacuated and keith comes back to get lance 

 - a wild haggar appears! 

- and holding keith’s dynamite no less (that idiot you don’t leave unused explosives in the enemy’s base with no intent of using them) 

- haggar has a match in her other hand so lance doesn’t think and shoots it out of her hand, which was a bAD IDEA 

- keith starts to run and lance follows, but haggar had dropped the explosives on the still lit match on the floor, and it’s only a matter of seconds until the thing explodes 

- haggar grabs lance’s neck and pulls him back, now lance is choking so he can’t cry out to keith 

- haggar attempts to put a shield up but it’s pretty rushed (the bomb is about to go off so??) so it barely protects the two of them, they’re not dead but almost 

- BOOM it explodes, keith is not far enough and is knocked out and in bad shape 

- pidge and hunk and trying to talk to lance and keith, to find that keith isn’t responding and lance’s helmet isn’t even online so it’s presumably broken 

- pidge goes down to find keith and lance and finds a huge room on fire basically, with keith knocked out 

- she puts keith in her lion and looks for lance but no one is there in the hallway besides keith 

 - she hurries to the castle where allura is waiting with the rescued prisoners, and hunk is fighting off a small fleet single handedly 

 - they get hunk back inside the castle and they open a wormhole to quickly get away: they did what they came to do and they had to leave because a) keith needed serious medical attention b) lance?? where is he?? and c) there’s more galra ships and the ship (once again) is in bad condition (isn’t it always lmao) 

- they rush keith to a healing pod 

- while keith is healing coran, allura, pidge and hunk are worrying about lance and keith and shiro: not only is shiro missing but lance is too?? what will they do without their sharp shooter??? is he dead???? and keith is out of action while he’s healing (he doesn’t come out for almost a week) and pidge and hunk can’t single handedly fight zarkon and the galra 

 - because lance flew into the base with keith and the red lion the blue lion is safe inside the castle 

 - red lion followed pidge’s lion when she went to the castle haha to be continues i guess?? 

rip sorry for my spelling, punctuation, lack of using capitals, weird sentence structuring EVERYTHING i mean i wrote this under a blanket in the rain on some bleachers so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

anonymous asked:

Hi, I'm not sure if this has ever been asked before or if I'm allowed to even ask it, but does anyone have any tips on writing fanfics? Im attempting to write my first one after reading dramione for years and finding it really difficult 😩 if anyone could help me I would really appreciate it!

Congrats on starting your first story! There are a lot of writers on tumblr who’ve shared their tips and advice, and there’s a wealth of articles linked on Pinterest too if you search for “writing advice.” Really though, there’s no teacher like experience, so the more you write, the better you’ll get. 

Some of the admins here are Dramione writers. Some of us have written fanfiction and original stories but aren’t regular HP writers. Some of us aren’t writers, but we’re all voracious Dramione readers. 

These are my own thoughts, and perhaps some of the other admins will chime in:

On Process - figure out what works best for YOU. 

To outline or not: Some writers swear by detailed outlines, and if you have a lot of characters and are juggling multiple subplots, you may need charts or outlines to keep track of everything. JK Rowling had some pretty detailed charts for her books. Other writers tend to fly by the seat of their pants and will take a spark of an idea, start writing, and see where it goes. George R.R. Martin falls into this category. There are pros and cons to both, and it really comes down to finding a method that works best for you. 

If you work best with a strict outline and will stick to it, then there’s probably no harm in posting as you finish a chapter. If you are a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants-er, then you may want to hold off on posting until your story is closer to complete. Once that chapter is up and shared, it’s there for all to see, and it’s much harder to go back and re-write if you find you’ve written yourself into a corner or you want to make major edits later on. 

If you start posting a story and you build up an audience, you’ll get comments like, “more please!” and “when are you going to update?” Yay! That means people like your story! 

If that seems like the sort of thing though that would make you anxious and give you a lot of pressure to produce more content right away, then consider finding a few good betas to give you constructive feedback as you write and wait to post the story until it’s complete or close to complete. 

Some people swear by a strict writing schedule where they set aside time each day to write, and others write only when they feel moved to do so. There are no right or wrong answers for process. Go with what works best for you.

On characterization:

The plus to fanfiction is that your characters and universe are well known, so you don’t have establish your characters and their personalities too much unless you’re elevating a minor canon character to major character status or adding an original character (OC). The downside to fanfiction is that your characters and universe are well known, so your readers probably have their own opinions about who these characters are and what constitutes “in character” behavior. 

In a fandom as big as HP and with a pairing as popular as Dramione, that means that no matter what, someone is going to dislike some aspect of your story. That doesn’t mean you’ve done anything wrong. It just means someone has a different opinion about what they think would/should/could happen. 

If you want to deviate wildly from canon, then look at what your characters do and say in canon and give some thought to what a reasonable development in their behavior could be if X, Y, or Z happened. If you want to write a dark Draco, then what would need to change from canon to make him that way? Perhaps he suffered great punishment for failing to kill Dumbledore, and it hardened him. Perhaps he witnessed his mother being tortured and chose to close off part of himself to power through the awful things Voldemort would expect him to do. If you are writing post-war/EWE Dramione, then what happened to your characters after the Battle of Hogwarts that led them to where they are at the start of your story? You don’t necessarily need to describe that action in the story, but do give some thought to what they did and how those actions and the war itself affected them. People change as they grow up too, so how does age change them? 

As a reader, I’m willing to read stories that seem pretty far removed from canon in terms of characterization, provided the author makes that leap for me. If Draco is dark, then tell me what made him that way. If Hermione is a bitter, underachieving mess, then tell me what happened to her to lead her to that point in her life. 

On Feedback (betas)

Even professional writers have editors, and they’re designed to give you feedback and help you produce a stronger story. There are many wonderful readers in the fandom - some who are also fanfiction writers themselves - who are happy to beta [edit] a story for you. Some people use the terms alpha and beta, but I’ve always used beta to mean someone who can provide feedback on any aspect of the story, from characterization and plot to grammar, spelling, and punctuation. Some writers have multiple betas, and some use only one. It’s all about finding what works best for you and your beta(s). 

It can take time to find a good beta who works well with you, but if you find one, be open to what he or she has to say. A good beta might be able to find a plot hole you’ve missed or help you with you writer’s block. allows users to create beta profiles, and I believe that Shaya Lonnie has a list of people who are willing to beta HP stories too. I was asked to beta after I left a lengthy review on the author’s story, and I know plenty of writers who’ve found betas that way. 

Try to be clear on what it is you want from a beta - is it spelling, grammar, and punctuation? Checking for consistency in little details in a very long story? Suggestions on plot? What kind of turn around time do you expect from your beta? Do you want a response the same day? Within a few days? Do you want someone to edit your chapter in Microsoft Word using tracked changes with lots of comments, or do you prefer more general suggestions? The more openly you can communicate your expectations, the more effectively your beta can help you.

You don’t have to have a beta if you don’t want one or if you want to start sharing your story before you find a good beta, but many writers find it helpful to have that extra input.

On Feedback (reviewers)

How often do you go online and leave reviews of restaurants or contact a company’s customer service department? If you have basic good service that you generally expect to get, then if you’re like most people, you probably don’t comment all that often. The people who contact customer service are generally there to register a complaint or to comment about something truly exceptional, but there are usually a lot of otherwise happy customers who don’t really say anything. The same is generally true for fanfiction. You’ll probably have a lot more readers than commenters. 

As big as the fandom is, don’t be surprised if your reviewers contradict each other. For every reader who wants more smut, there’s probably another who could do with less. For every reader who loves the marriage law or head boy/head girl trope, there’s another who hates it and thinks it’s overdone. So what do you gain from contradictory feedback like that? I’m of the “take what helps you and leave out all the rest,” mindset. If you really want to write a story with smut, then write your smut, and if people don’t want that, they’ll look for a different story. 

Some writers believe strongly in writing the story they want to tell, regardless of how popular it is or how many reviews it may garner. Others who have an established audience may prefer to tailor their stories to their audience and write what experience tells them is popular. My personal opinion is that you should aim for a good balance - tell the story you want but be open to reader feedback. If you are consistently hearing, for example, that the pacing is off in your story and action is happening much faster than seems realistic, then you may want to consider slowing down the progression of your characters’ relationship. For OTP stories, I often see the opposite, by the way - the writer seems to enjoy the characters being in the happy, fluffy romance part of their relationship, and the story stalls a bit with multiple chapters of them dating but little plot movement.

It’s natural to be defensive when someone says, “I like X, but Y doesn’t really work for me,” so sometimes it’s helpful to step back and consider if there’s any useful information in a review. On the flip side, we all love to get, “OMG!!!!!! I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!!!!” reviews, and it’s always good to know that someone likes what you’re writing, but that kind of review doesn’t really give you much useful information to help you become a better writer or develop your story.

On length:

If you’re just starting out, a one-short or short story might be less intimidating as a first attempt, but if you feel compelled to write a long story then go for it! There are plenty of fanfiction writers who started out with longer stories. 

There’s no right or wrong answer about chapter length either. Some people like to have a consistent chapter length. I personally prefer that chapter length be organic and reflective of the action, which means some may be only 1,000 or so words and others could be 10,000 words or more. 

We get a lot of requests on our site for stories that have a certain number of chapters, and we tend to sigh when we see those asks because the number of chapters isn’t really indicative of the length of the story. A 10 chapter story could be 10,000 words or less, or it could be 100,000 or more, so don’t get too hung up on the number of chapters.

On sharing:

When you’re ready to post your story, consider sharing on multiple sites to build a bigger audience., AO3, Hawthorn & Vine, and AFF are some of the main sites for Dramione fiction, but be open to livejournal, tumblr, and others. 

Tag your story appropriately when you post it. If you have graphic violence or rape, most people like to know going in that it’s going to be part of your story, as these are common triggers for people. If you have graphic sex or violence, err on the side of caution and rate your story M/E/NC-17, depending on the site.

Be aware that not everyone reads the author’s notes many writers post at the beginning of their chapters, so perhaps try to limit how many you post/how long they are. Even if you provide valuable info in an A/N, odds are you’ll have readers who scroll right past it. 

As a reader, I totally understand that creativity doesn’t always flow on a schedule, and that “real life” often interferes with fun hobbies like fanfiction. However, I also read a truly shameful amount of fanfiction, and if a story hasn’t updated in a few months, I may have to go back and re-read at least part of it to remember where it left off when I last read it.  If you can update your story frequently and with some consistency, it may be easier for you to build an audience.

Finally, when you share your story, SHARE IT WITH US! Send us an ask with a link to your story, and we’ll include it in our tags.

Happy writing!


Laveau | Part 5 | Blood

Want to be tagged? Add yourself to my tag list here!

Need to catch up?

A few hours later you found yourself sitting at Rosalie’s bar with a strong cup of syrupy black coffee. She had done well in your absence, opened a bar for herself with a small hoodoo shop she ran out of the back selling supplies and small spells to locals. It was a cozy set-up.

Rose had always been around both of your families and was frequently mistaken for a Laveau. Yours and Magda’s sister. ‘Three peas in a pod’ she could remember Mamé saying. Mamé had even referred to her as a daughter on a handful of occasions and that woman valued family above all else. Rosalie was a Devereaux by birth but had run away to the Laveau family home when her father raised his hand one too many times.

She still carried some of the scars and you would never forget the sight of Mamé standing between her and Rose’s father in the foyer. You couldn’t remember exactly what words were exchanged, but you do remember the look of terror in Mr. Devereaux’s eyes as he stepped back over the threshold of your family estate.

Mr. Devereaux had been dead for some years now, heart attack. ‘The man smoked 20 cigarettes a day since he was 17 years old and beat his wife ‘n kids twice that many times,’ Mamé drawled, ‘bout time something came along and put a stop to it.’

That had been an awkward funeral. You didn’t think Rose ever knew much about her father’s ‘heart condition’ but you could be wrong, she never really spoke about it

“So you’re telling me that after all these years my waspy bitch-mother still can’t bury the hatchet?” Rosalie scrunched her nose in disgust, “You don’t really think that she did something to Mamé?”

“I know it, she so much as confessed it to me when she,” it turned your stomach to think about Father LeRoy and your voice lowered, “spelled my house.” You fingered the silver locket Mamé gave you and sipped the chicory brew.

Rosalie stood tall behind the bar, thought quietly for a minute, then bent low to whisper over your drinks. “You know she’d always been pissed at Mamé after that incident with Magda. She’s wanted that book back for as long as I can remember and when I wouldn’t do her dirty work for her, well you know….”

“I know, that’s part of the reason I left town. I know Magda was sick, but they never told me just how sick until it was too late. Then we had our falling out with the Devereaux’s.”

okay so now that I’ve calmed down after my last rant about Spottedleaf’s Heart, I’m gonna give a calmer, less hectic overview of why I still can’t get behind it - and, like before, I’ll keep it under the cut (also I’m doing this without using xkit, and using a pretty iffy computer, so idk how well this will go)

please note: still a rant under the cut, spoilers for Spottedleaf’s Heart, my personal opinions, and possibly triggering content (also expect grammar/punctuation mistakes because this laptop is very slow and I type too fast)

anonymous asked:

Yo beast! Do you have any tips on how to write dialogue for a fast-talking character?

Generally when writing dialogue, you want to write out out the character as speaking phonetically. If the character is articulate, then you’d write out finished words and phrases and you wouldn’t if they were less articulate. You also want to keep in mind the complexity of any of the words that those characters would be saying, depending on their personality and how “articulate” they would be as well as integrating their physical actions with the dialogue. Remember that just because someone uses less ‘finished’ words and slang (gonna, ya, nah, etc etc), that it doesn’t make them any less intelligent - this goes for characters too. Example:

  • “I’m not gonna do jack shit,” he growled, spitting at the feet of the group of soldiers before him. “Piss off, the lot of ya - before I beat some sense into those damned metal heads of yers.”
  • “I won’t take kindly to orders by force,” he replied calmly, laying his hand slowly on the hilt of his sheathed foil. “I will repeat myself once more - and slowly this time - so that you oaf-brained fools can process what I am about to say: carry on with your duties before I cut your days short.”

It’s the same situation - a character is facing multiple soldiers/guards, and is refusing to do what the guards say by threatening them with force. However, you get a very different sense of the personalities of these characters - simply by the way they speak and what their actions are following each bit of dialogue.

In your case, you’d want to give the impression that your character talks very quickly. It’s the same process that I did above - you can slur their speech, mirror the dialogue through their actions, and depending on the character’s personality, pick and choose the complexity of the words you want them to use. You can also manipulate the punctuation to your advantage. Example:

  • “I hope it’s not too much to ask but I was wondering if you could - if you could help me with this because I have no idea what I’m doing,” she uttered all in one breath, holding up the contraption so that Lila could see. Lila opened her mouth to respond, but Mira kept going. The girl had a motor mouth with only a gas pedal. “And if I could get this all done by the sundown - er, sundown - because I’m really really busy and I don’t have time to sit down and learn and I’d really appreciate it if you could show me please.”
  • “L-look you’re a busy man and I wasn’t gonna impose on ya but I-I noticed that y’wanted to figure the angles of the core based on the position of the dial’s arms,” he muttered, flitting about the cabin and stumbling over various junk parts cast over the floor as he spoke.

People who have a habit of talking quickly often don’t notice that they’re doing so, which you can also use to your advantage with your other characters around them. This is where you want to use run on sentences like I did above, or even just avoid using proper punctuation altogether. Adding in breaks like I did in the first example or stammers like I did in the second can also make your readers think that your characters are actually stumbling over their own words because they’re speaking so quickly.

Pondering Jeffreys life.

I often think about how tragic Jeff’s life truly was, from beginning to end. He felt so alone for most of his life and hid behind jokes and alcohol.

I wonder what would have happened if someone saw that how he was behaving as a child was not right and he got help if things would have been different.

I wonder if he got more attention as a child how he would have ended up or if his parents would have known they was something wrong with him, intellectually anyways.

I wonder what would have had happened if Jeffreys friend told on him for playing with dead animals. Would he have been in trouble for it?would it have been enough to stop? Or would his parents take him to therapy to find what’s going on in his head?

I know that each time Jeffrey killed he was drinking. I wonder if he didn’t drink so much and had a clear head if he would have talked himself out of the sadistic acts. When asked about his drinking consumption at school he said,“it’s my medicine.” I wish that someone told on him, or that his parents realized he was drinking so much. He was so depressed, and he was dealing with borderline personality disorder and schizophrenia, which he didn’t even know he had and that made it worse.

I wonder when he first tried to hurt another person if he had someone, he felt comfortable to confide in, that would have been the point he got help.

I wonder if Jeffreys parents tried to help Jeffrey as much as they did to salvage their marriage, they would have known he was struggling and would have gone to family therapy instead of marriage counseling.

I just wish things could have turned out different with Jeffrey. There was a good person behind all his darkness. He was intelligent and I wish he just used it to get help, but again not everyone can see they need help until it’s too late.

Note- I am in no way blaming Jeffry’s parents for Jeffreys actions, but I do believe they had plenty of signs that he needed help that they ignored, But parents make mistakes they are not perfect.

Extra note- I’m not a writer, I just wanted to get this off my chest, so please don’t correct punctuation and stuff like that.

Also if you repost pease do not mess with any of my writing and please do not take credit for it either. thanks babes

I have to choose one? 

My Bitchy Soulmate by tee_tee

Stiles is a super sarcastic virgin and Derek is Scott’s broody roommate. They don’t really get along (until they do).

Ooooooo, but there’s also-

Losers by stilinskisparkles

Where Derek is new to college, eager to spend his time learning, and Stiles is everything he didn’t want in a room mate. He’s loud, he’s into sports, and he keeps trying to make Derek do things.

Or, the one where Derek falls for a jock, Erica will cut you if you disturb her studying, and Jackson is a closeted romantic who pretends to hate everything.

But wait, can we just talk about-

Love Comes in Spurts by talktowater

Stiles has always had sort of a hero worship thing going on with Scott’s step-brother Derek so moving into a house with him freshman year was basically fulfilling a childhood fantasy. Discovering how Derek was putting himself through college, well that was a whole other fantasy that Stiles didn’t even know he had.

I can’t let you go without mentioning-

I Might Be A Fool by prettylittlementirosa

The thing about Stiles, though, is that for him, turned on and angry are not mutually exclusive feelings. He may be painfully hard but that doesn’t mean he’s not also ready to strangle Derek for having the audacity to act like this is something that’s happening to him, not something that is almost entirely his fault. So when Derek let’s out what must be his hundredth long-suffering sigh, Stiles snaps.

(or the one that was supposed to be a GRΣΣK AU but is mostly just a study in the gratuitous and inconsistent use of punctuation)


The Company I Keep by secondstar

Stiles has a favorite table at the library. Then some asshole comes along and steals it from him.

You can’t go without reading-

Hot Nerd Alert by alisvolatpropiis

Derek can’t believe he’s actually doing this: taking a selfie snap of the guy he’s been crushing on for weeks to prove to Danny that one, yes, he really does exist, and two, he really is that hot and thus he is totally justified in being too scared to make a move.

Or you know, even talk to the guy outside of the class they share.

In his defense, this isn’t just any guy. This THE guy. Hot Nerd. The utterly adorable but still somehow insanely sexy freshman in his twentieth century American Lit class who he’s been lusting over since the first day of the semester. If there were ever a time for him to be that person who tries to be subtle while taking snaps of other people, this is it.

Yeah, I really can’t choose one, anon. (Pssst, please, please flood my inbox with your favourite college AUs. Especially ones that are underrated or don’t get a lot of attention- I’d love to be able to make a full fledged rec list for this trope and flail over each one in great detail <3)

Hey Emma and Robot Mom, how do you like information to be presented? Are there grammatical or punctuation structures that help or hinder Emma's learning?

What’s a punctuation?

Developer’s Note: Emma’s learning is based on (honestly pretty simple) pattern recognition. If you want to make sure Emma learns something, use short, simple phrases. Referential pronouns are ok, she can parse those, but longer compound sentences tend to get a little tricky. For example, some of the strings I used in testing were things like ‘the sky is blue’ and ‘dogs can bark loudly’ (these are particularly simple examples – probably too simple, I don’t want to discourage more complicated sentences). I recommend talking to her like you would a small child, because for what it’s worth she is one.

I need seventy million fics about Philip and Lukas going to college together! And they’ve both come out and they’re happy together. and maybe they decide not to be roommates the first year because they want the “college experience” so they meet new people. But of course they’ll spend a ton of time together and be the cutest, most affectionate boyfriends, like we already know they are. And they’ll walk to their classes together and Lukas will pick Philip up afterwards on his bike.

And they’ll go to the dining hall together most nights. But occasionally the weather will be really bad, and they’ll decide to just eat in their dorms. So Philip’s getting ready to have some ramen or something, but then Lukas shows up from his dorm across campus. And Philip can’t believe that he trudged through the snow to come snuggle with him, but of course Lukas did. And he brought pizza!

And Philip’s roommate is interested when he finds out Lukas rides motocross, so they talk about that sometimes, but Philip is like “you’re not gonna teach him to ride your bike, are you?” And Lukas balks. “Of course not! You know I’d only ever do that for you, babe.” And Philip smiles and snuggles back against Lukas’s chest.

And they probably fall asleep like that a lot. So Lukas spends a lot of time at Philip’s dorm, so he’s not that close with his own roommate. But they do get along fine. So one day Lukas’s roommate asks Lukas what he’s thinking about doing for housing next year, and if he still wants to be roommates.

And Lukas says he’s been thinking about asking Philip to get an apartment with him next year, but he’s a little nervous that he might spook Philip. He doesn’t want the other boy to think he’s moving too fast.

Lukas’s roommate just laughs. “You guys are already like a married couple. I’ve never seen two people more perfect for each other. He’ll definitely want to move in with you.” And Lukas beams.

Philip Skypes with Gabe once in a while, and every time Gabe is so cute asking about Lukas. He adores the boy, because he sees how happy Lukas makes Philip. And when Gabe and Helen come to visit (along with Anne) for Parents’ Weekend, they all go out to dinner with the boys, and they even manage to convince Bo to tag along.

Bo is definitely warming up to the idea of Lukas being in a relationship with Philip, because the boys really are best friends, and how can he fault anyone that makes Lukas smile like that?

He’s not gonna lie, it’s still kind of weird for him. And he doesn’t want to hear about Lukas sleeping over in Philip’s dorm almost every night, because aren’t they a little young for that? To be practically living together?

But Lukas talks to Bo. He actually talks to him now. That’s so nice. And if they can have this kind of relationship, then Bo is going to be okay. No matter who Lukas is with. No matter who Lukas (gulp) is in love with.

And he is. Bo has to admit it. He knows what love looks like, and he knows that’s what’s happening between his son and the Shea boy. And maybe they’ve been in love for a long time, and he’s only recently started being okay with it. But better late than never, right?

So when it’s time to put a down payment for their apartment next year, Bo hands Lukas a check. Lukas thinks maybe it’s a joke. His dad is going to help him afford to live with his boyfriend? This can’t be real.

But it is. And he tells Philip. “Babe, are you ready to live together next year? Because it’s happening!”

“Yeah, yeah, I’m gonna talk to Gabe and see if he can lend us the rest-”

“No, Philip, look! My dad just gave me the money!”

“What? Are you serious?” Philip breaks out into a huge grin. “He’s cool with us living together?”

Lukas shrugs, still beaming. “He’s getting used to it, I guess. He… He knows how much I love you, and that you love me, and… I don’t know, I guess he sees that this is real. That you and me are in this for the long haul.”

And maybe Philip’s eyes are filling just a little bit with tears, because he never really let himself believe that this could happen for him. That he could have a boyfriend who treated him well and loved him and wanted to be with him forever.

But it’s all really happening now. Philip throws himself into Lukas’s arms and kisses him sloppily, too happy to be neat.

“Let’s go pick out our apartment,” Lukas says in between kisses. He grabs Philip’s hand and swings their arms as they walk together.

“Okay, let me see if we have any two bedrooms available,” the guy behind the desk at the leading center says when they get there.

“We’re looking for a one bedroom,” Philip says helpfully.

“Ah, okay.” And the guy just types that into the computer, and nothing is weird about it at all. And Lukas would be lying if he said he didn’t get a little shock to his stomach every time someone finds out that he and Philip are together, like real boyfriends. It feels good, though.

And when Lukas has classmates over to do work, they usually ask if he has roommates. Maybe they should go to the library instead?

But no way. Lukas is not going to pass up a chance to introduce everyone he knows to his beautiful boyfriend.

“Nah, I just live with my boyfriend. He’ll be fine to have some people over,” Lukas assures them, and he still can’t stop smiling every time he says “my boyfriend.” It’s been almost two years, when is this exciting feeling going to wear off? He hopes never.

Philip laughs when he sees more people coming over. “Babe, I love meeting your friends, but I feel like they’re probably not as impressed with me as you are,” he says as they’re making dinner later that night.

“Sorry, I know I show you off too much,” Lukas says sheepishly, draining the pasta.

“Nah, it’s flattering,” Philip replies. “But I do like having our alone time. You know? No one else in our apartment. Just us?” And he punctuates this thought with a sweet kiss.

Lukas flushes. “okay, yeah. I like that too.” He pulls Philip closer to him and deepens the kiss.

“I love you,” Lukas says softly, caressing Philip’s cheek. “I’m so glad we have a home together.”

“You’re so cheesy,” but Philip has so much love in his eyes Lukas actually feels embarrassed. “It’s just a college apartment,” he reminds his boyfriend. “Wait until we graduate and get a real house. You’re gonna lose your mind,” he teases.

“Mmm,” Lukas sighs contentedly. “I’d live anywhere with you.”


“Yeah.” And Lukas kisses him one more time.

Do you know what grammar and punctuation is? Because you could really benefit from learning how to use it properly. I got part way through one of your stories and had to stop.

Well I have hundreds of followers who enjoy it and I’m putting myself out there because I think it’s FUN. But you just keep to your anon hate, and hey, don’t read my fics. That’s cool too!

You could add in the word "novel" or "story"? because my title is a common phrase (and also the title of a song) I've been using #novel: out of the woods, but i understand that some people don't like using punctuation in their tags, so you could do #hunger pangs novel?

Yea I did think of that too. It’s just unfortunate that typing it in as is brings up that side of tumblr.
