do not hang out without me

I don’t want a relationship,” I whispered.
“Then what do you want?”
“I want you to tell me things. I want to hear about you and your family and your problems with your dad. I want to be the one you go to first when something exciting happens. I want to hang out with you while we talk about nothing and watch old movies. I want to tease you about your obsession with blues music. I want to make out with you in your basement and laugh when we almost get caught by your mom. I want everything a relationship is without having the pressure of making it official. I just want you.
—  Thoughts about you part 4

Look at him. JUST LOOK AT HIM.

“Oh, I do think I can last twenty minutes without supervision.”

“Well, if you’re sure.”

And that’s Sherlock’s reaction after the brief exchange. He so desperately wanted John to stay, to “hang out”, to just be… together. 

But he doesn’t know how to ask.

That just fucking kills me.

And now you have to look at it too and suffer along.

A Letter to Sherlock

Dearest Sherlock,

You Always Asked Me ‘For’ Something:

Please note bruises formed in the next 20 minutes.

Black, two sugars, please. I’ll be upstairs.

Could you wheel them out again for me?

You’re having lunch with me. I need your help.

I need that analysis.

Would you still want to help me?

Molly. Would you like to solve crimes?

But you can’t do this again, can you?

What do I do?

Ready to go Molly? Just tell me when to cough. Hope you remembered my coat.

Molly, please, without asking why just say these words…

Molly, no! Please, no, don’t hang up! Do not hang up!

But please… just say those words for me.

Please, just say it. Why?

Well, if it’s true, just say it anyway.

Molly?

Molly, please!

I Always Asked You 'About’ You:

Bad day was it?

I was wondering if you’d like to have coffee.

Are you okay?

What do you need?

You wanted to see me?

Sherlock. What was today about?

How dare you throw away the beautiful gifts you were born with, and how dare you betray the love of your friends? Say you’re sorry.

Stop it. Just, stop it.

You’re almost certainly going to die, so we need to focus.

I said. Focus!

So come on, what’s going to kill you?

Sherlock, you need to fall on your back. Fall. Now.

You have to control the pain.

Hello, Sherlock. Is this urgent because I’m not having a good day?

Leave me alone.

Why are you doing this to me? Why are you making fun of me?

You say it. Go on. You say it first.

Say it. Say it like you mean it.

So now, most of your fans (who used to love me in the past) hate me. Why?

They say that I have just a silly crush on you.

They say that I can be easily manipulated by you.

They say that I am too old, ugly and weak for you.

They say that I follow you around like a loser.

They say that I am not allowed to love you.

They say that I am miserable and pathetic in your eyes.

They say that you do not care for me.

They say that you do not worry about me.

They say that you do not love me.

Sherlock. It’s not a crime to fall-in-love.

You are not a machine. You never were.

Truth of the matter is:

You Always Asked Me 'For’ Something.

I Never Asked You 'For’ Anything.

So, I loved you. I love you. And…

I’ll keep loving you. Because it’s not a sin to love you.

Please stay safe.

With Love,

Your Molly. xxx

Anon: What do you think about the last VLive and all the ji/kook moments??? 😍😍😍

Anon: omfgg jungkook does his tongue thing at 36:24 in the ynwa preview vlive when jimin is hanging off of taehyung im living       

There were so many cute little moments scattered across that vlive. But since I’m late (as always lol) and everybody else probably has already covered most of the more important things, I’ll just point out what stood out the most for me.

LISTEN…. i love everything about this dialog but the part that absolutely blew my mind was just… tony wondering if ultron can still be good…… listen to me…. this is something i miss so much in both the mcu and most comics nowadays…. my son… the guy who would hire ex-convicts without looking at their records at all… the guy who would wax lyrical about the value of second chances with minimal prompting… the guy who was manipulated by villains multiple times exactly because he was so intense about Believing That People Can Get Better… the guy who fell in love with villains multiple times…. the guy who refused to kill based on the premise that everyone deserves a chance to turn themselves around… the guy who looked at the system that fostered a crime instead of condemning the criminal…. the guy who hasn’t given up on you even after you gave up on yourself… listen……. LISTEN….. MY SON……..

P L U S that delicious contextual layer of ULTRON HAS HIS BRAINWAVES SO REALLY TONY’S WORRIES ALSO TIE BACK TO THE HOPES HE HAS FOR HIMSELF AND HIS SELF-IMAGE and anyway this event is 739283629x better than the actual movie it’s based on lmao

Evak Drabble Prompt-- Roomates

“You do know that you don’t have to force your roommates to look after me, right?” Even’s voice was light as he took careful sips of hot cider, eyeing Isak out of the corner of his eye. The two boys strolled along the city square, Isak insisting that they spend a little more time in the muted sunlight before going home.

Isak spluttered innocently, “That’s not what I’m doing.”

Even stole a bite of Isak’s kebab. “Isak- I played Yahtzee with Eskild and he made me watch a movie about the birth of dolphins.”

“Maybe he just wanted to hang out with you?” Isak’s voice was uncertain, clearly gasping at straws to retain his innocence. When Even remained unconvinced, Isak sighed. “I just didn’t want you to think that I was leaving you alone.”

Even was quiet as they continued to stroll without a clear destination in mind. He could slowly feel himself coming out of his depression induced haze- his emotions were sharpening, sleep lessening little by little. It was relieving because he didn’t know how much longer he could do this to Isak without the guilt crushing him.

Isak. The boy who stayed with him. The man of his life- his fucking universe. He came back to him and has stayed with him and remained the one constant in Even’s down period. He was trying, putting in a herculean effort to make Even feel that there was nothing wrong with, that Isak loved him.

Isak loved him. He hadn’t said it in so many words, but why else would Isak stay with such a broken boy?

Even slowed the two to a stop with a gentle hand on Isak’s arm. “I love you. You know that right?” 

A hint of a smile at Isak’s beautiful bowed lips, “I know.”

Even nodded slowly and raised his arm to wrap carefully around Isak’s thin frame. “Good. I don’t want you to think that how I am now- it’s not me. I mean, it is a part of me, but I don’t want-”

“Chill,” Isak says, pinching Even’s sides. “I know you. The real you. Every bit of you. And this? This is nothing. It’s a couple of bad days to add to our countless good days.”

Even smiles and it feels odd on his face, “Countless good days, huh? And do we have countless more to look forward to?”

Isak scoffs and pulls them to continue walking, “Of course. And the best will be our wedding day. You said something about mini burgers being served?”

A small laugh, “I did say that, didn’t I?” He sobers, “Isak, you know that this part of me isn’t going to go away right? It will happen again.”

Isak sighs and stops them again, “What did I tell you? We are taking it minute by minute. And in this minute, I want to enjoy walking down the street with you. Okay?”

Even nodded, and leant down to kiss the younger boys head.

Little Break

🔥: Hey guys! Fire here! We won’t be doing much work on the comic or managing the blog this week. 

Why, you may ask?

Well…


That’s right! Moon has come down to Southern Cali for a week to visit me! We’ll be hanging out and doing touristy things and spending some much awaited quality time with each other. Checking the blog will be less frequent, and we’ll probably be posting less art content, but don’t be surprised if a few pictures from the trip come up. 

Thanks for understanding! And as always, stay tuned for what’s Next™!

pantalainnon  asked:

So I got two 5-month-old rats (both males and I'm assuming brothers) how do I get them to trust me? I've currently been doing little things like letting them sniff me and hand feeding them treats. They are incredibly skittish and don't like if I try to pet them. Also - one of them keeps grabbing my finger (or anywhere he can) with his teeth, it's not hard but it's firm and sometimes hurts a little.

Stop trying to pet them. Back up and let them come to you in their own time - could be weeks or months, but let them choose it. Stop by and talk to them without touching, drop off food and leave, hang out and let the choose to sniff your hand. Teach them that you won’t pressure them to go beyond their comfort zone and they’ll be more willing to explore and investigate you. 

Things not to say to your ex

I love you

I miss hanging out with your brother

Your cats an asshole

I like your cat more than you

Sometimes it’s hard to sleep at night without you

Do you ever think about us?

My mother was right about you

This bourbon tastes kinda like that lip balm you had

I am drunk

I am very drunk.

I just wanted you to know that I care about you

I just… What am I to you?

Do you ever think about us?

Does it ever bother you?

Do you miss me?

Did I mean as much as he does?

Do I mean anything?

Do the storms scare you more now too?

Do you still shut the lights off three times and lock the door six and does that drum beat still invade your soul?

Do you still sleep with one eye open and your fists clenched with your dreams chained to the head of the bed so your father can’t take them too?

I can’t breathe anymore cause the air here doesn’t smell like you anymore and now I can’t sleep without the ceiling fan on and I don’t think depression cares that much whether or not I sleep or if I eat or if I ever get over you. It just eats the pain and demands more.

I miss you

Goodnight

slntklr  asked:

Hey do you have any recommendations for self improvement books? Or even novels of any genre that teach you something that you can apply to creating a better life?

I have to admit that I am not one for the typical self-help book. I find most of them patronizing or just saying the same thing over and over again. I tend to get most of my advice like this from memoirs or fiction, so I’ll include some of those and why!

1. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling- I choose this one because she does have some good advice on following your dreams and adulting- and it’s pretty funny!

2. Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi - Always inspirational to me to see people overcome tremendous odds and it shows the power of literature! 

3. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak- I feel like so much can be learned from this book. I love it so much. 

4. If You Find This Letter by Hannah Brencher- This made me want to go out and change the world. Does have a heavy Christian lean if that isn’t something you are looking for!

5. Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld- Inspired me to become more creative -write more and read more!

Hope one of these does the trick for you! 

Lauren

you know .. i did love you . i loved you so much i couldnt breathe . you consumed my entire being and i guess thats why i let you treat me the way you did . i honestly don’t know what you got out of destroying me time after time but i do hope that you don’t put anyone else through that . i waited . i waited and waited for you . i gave you chance after chance and i left you with every last thing i had and you took it all without a single care in the world . i tried to hang on because i really thought you were worth it . but today i just stopped waiting . i dont want to hear “i miss you” anymore although i hope you do miss me . and you know , once upon a time i would have given my last breath for you to say that . but now i hope you see me so happy that i look like im about to explode and i hope it kills you . i hope you drop to the floor and feel like the breath is being sucked out of you and you realize what you gave up . because i gave you the world and i kept fighting long after i should have stopped and you didnt deserve that

Beware of Pride

Pride goes before destruction.” - Pr 16:18 NKJV

Think about the things we become proud over: the home we live in, the car we drive, the diploma hanging on our wall, the people we mingle with, and the position we hold. When you’ve worked hard to get to where you are, look out for pride! Paul asks, “Who makes you differ from another? And what do you have that you did not receive? Now if you did indeed receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it?” (1Co 4:7 NKJV). So what should you do?

(1) Examine your belief system about who you are, what you have, and what you can do. Jesus said, “Without Me you can do nothing” (Jn 15:5 NKJV). Remind yourself: “I’m just the glove; God’s the hand that fills it.” That’ll help you to keep your perspective right!

(2) Focus more on others than on yourself. The saying—“When a person is all wrapped up in themselves, they make a pretty small package”—is true. “Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others” (Php 2:4 NKJV).

(3) Respect and value everyone you meet regardless of their social status, race, gender, or other distinguishing factors. When you walk in humility, people respect you and receive your input, and they don’t suspect you of having selfish motives.

The Bible says: “These things the Lord hates…a proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren” (Pr 6:16-19 NKJV). Today, beware of pride.

First Sunset in ‘17

Thursday, hours at the beach, a certain spirit of isolation, other people a bit too loud, the sea, the sunset, the walking by the shore, the smell of cheap wine, remaking the world in a set of hours barefoot in the sand while having a bag of chips. Talking without really saying anything, the strong wind, the balance between the sun setting and the moon beginning to show itself. 

Maybe I did not realize that sometimes in life, you meet someone that you connect so much in a certain level—as friends, or as lovers, or as family, or as something completely different. You meet them out of nowhere, in the strangest circumstances, in the best timing. 

Maybe I did not realize that before, because everything came so natural like breathing air. You do it so subconsciously—hanging out, having coffee—that you do not notice how the stars have aligned for you already, even without having any proof.

I do not know if that makes me believe in destiny, or true love, or sheer blind luck, but it definitely does make me believe in something. 

Jake’s entire family probably just thought he was sleeping with Marco

Seriously, though.  100% of Jake’s excuses for coming home late and/or sneaking out consist of: “Marco and I were doing stuff.  At his house.  You know, stuff.  What kind of stuff?  Just stuff.  And that’s why I’m coming home half-naked at three in the morning.  Because I left my clothes at Marco’s.  Where we were just… hanging out.  Without most of our clothes.  It’s a thing we do.  Like, three nights a week.  And that time I was missing for several days?  That was just another sleepover.  At Marco’s.  Where I sleep a lot.”

And don’t get me started on his habit of slamming the window shut every time he’s on the computer and someone else walks into the room.  I’m just picturing Temrash 114 being like, “What the hell was THAT about?” and Tom going, “Gay porn, probably.  It’s a human thing.”  

I keep the size 22 shorts so when I’m doubting how far I’ve come I whip them out of the closet and get into them. I feel like the road is long with health, but at least it’s much easier to walk up the stairs, hang out the laundry, and y'know, do life stuff without the extra 40kgs on.

Straight White Boy Problem #950

damn…its weird to think that my bros won’t be able to hang out at my house on Friday nights because we’ll all be at different colleges. I really don’t know what I’m going to do without them…its like…im getting on a train and they arent coming with me..but i have to do it…..I’ll find other bros…but these bros have always been there. The first kiss. The soccer championship. The silent exchange of homework worksheets to help a bro out…but this is something i NEED to do. I’ll always be there for my bros but we wont be hanging out, talking about girls, or grabbing chipotle. they will be in the back of my mind…but I’ve got to move on…so I can grow and become the best person I can be

Despite Saiki’s best attempts to keep his monthly check-ups/hang outs/bitch-fests with Shigeo a secret, and despite the younger boy’s best attempts to acquiesce to the surly high schooler’s need for privacy, the two boys were interrupted their 4th month into the arrangement, halfway through snack-time at a local cafe in Spice City, by a surly middle schooler attempting to loom over the two. 

Cluing in to the recognition on Shigeo’s face, and, more tellingly, the harried ‘Nii-san’ that scuttled across Saiki’s mind space, Saiki determined that this was the time for introductions and not for making a swift exit via teleport. Shigeo had warned him regarding the alarming number of ESPers in Spice City who were anything but friendly, but, honestly, Saiki didn’t need Mob’s ability to see psychic auras to know that he could easily take this kid down if his assumption turned out wrong. 


More stuff for the Mob Psycho 100/Saiki Kusuo crossover I’ve been thinking about. Since I’m out a tablet atm this is mixed media, for once. It’s been a while. 

Please, please, consider this crossover. Come talk to me about it anytime. 

I lied. Self-care Sunday version.

As much as I’m always on my high horse about lying to kids, I lied to all three tonight. I told them I am going out of town for work next weekend. I’m not. Booked my mini-vaca with no kids - 3 days on the beach with no responsibility. Excited for a break, but you know, feeling super guilty. I was trying to figure out how I was going to tell them when my mom said, you know you’re going to have to lie to them and tell them its for work, right? Ha. She knows me so well. I had been trying to decide what to tell them, if they know I’m going to a beach and hanging out with Aunt L without them they would be SUPER upset. And things have been sooooo much better, especially with Mary, that I don’t want to destroy it for 3 days. But, they do need to learn that its OK for me to take a break and I still love them, and I’m coming back, but they are also 4, and trauma and foster care, so lying seemed the best option for now. I prefer to lie by omission because then, technically its not a lie and, you know, rationalization and all, and I could have maybe pulled it off with the 4 year olds, but not with the 8 year old. So I did, said I was going for work and grandma and Aunt B was staying with them and the little girls said, OK. Punky gave me the run down, where are you staying, who will you be with, what are you doing, who is paying for it (always most important question for her about anything) and then, satisfied with my answers, said OK, we’ll be fine. And they will be. 

So, yay, break. Ugh, lying to kids.
