dog on the couch

Here am I, struggling along in my world, and there is the dog, dreaming in hers.

Sitting on my purple couch, working on my next book with my little dog sleeping next to me, I thought, Here am I, struggling along in my world, and there is the dog, dreaming in hers. Where are we both, really, as this little planet where we live, tucked away in an unimportant corner of an unknowable universe, spins on? This is what Henry Beston says in “The Outermost House: A Year of Life on the Great Beach of Cape Cod”: In a world older and more complete than ours, [animals] move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth.

lena's sc stories would be so wild tho..... one minute it's a picture of reign sleeping on the couch and the next it's alex vogueing to all star

there’s the most ridiculous things like, one moment she’s going for a coffee run. then she’s at the lab and rambling about her newest project. then there’s reign sleeping on the couch (lena is using the dog filter for this one) and then alex vogueing to all star. then there’s selfies of all of them. and one of them cooking in the kitchen.

the most iconic and talked about one is the one where she gets home and her girlfriends just got back from a work out so they’re just like, in sports bras and shorts and lena swears, softly but with a lot of feeling, “holy shit” before she ends the video

I THOUGHT OF SOMETHING THATS KINDA CUTE/FUNNY/BUT NOT FUNNY & NOW I WANNA SHARE. Everyone knows Shawn is allergic to dogs. imagine if he meets someone & they go to her place thinking that they're going to hook up but when they're on the bed about to 'get down' but he starts sneezing a lot and his eyes get watery and such so then he asks "do you have a dog?" (i'm running out of characters so i'm gonna continue on another ask, lol)

& she says no but she took care of a friends dog a while ago, seeing that he’s clearly allergic she gives him medicine to help, puts a blanket over the couch (bc of the dog) for the rest of the night they just talk, getting to know about each other and just really click with each other. somewhere along the line they start to date. they’ll have this story to tell people when they get asked. kinda cute, kinda funny ‘cause they were just gonna be a one night thing, they’re more because of a dog (’:

That is so super cute. Like imagine her being all upset and feeling bad because she’s actually making Shawn feel rather sick and uncomfortable and she fusses around him like asking him if he wants water or soup or anything. Like almost panicking because she feels so bad about it and Shawn just can’t help but sit there and smile widely at her because she is the cutest little thing he’s ever met and seeing her get to guilty because of something she didn’t know is just melting his heart. And they just sit there and talk and talk and talk and she keeps saying sorry and he keeps telling her not to and to finally shut her up Shawn kisses her. And they just sit there, you with Shawn’s head in your lap and playing with his hair and omg yes.

Closet Softie

Or, How Bucky Barnes Nearly Ruined His Tough-Guy Rep

(On AO3)


The trail mix was gone. 

The nice, expensive trail mix, with twelve kinds of nuts and the big sunflower seeds and dried fruits, the kind Tony only rarely left sitting on the common floors for everyone to get at, was gone. 

Clint had been looking forward to that stuff all morning

All the way through a hellish morning “jog” with Steve, all through Nat handing him his ass on the training mats, all through firing the same batch of misweighted arrows over and over so Tony could take scans and fix the design, he’d been thinking, when this is done I get to go upstairs and hang out on the couch and watch Dog Cops and eat the good trail mix, guilt-free. 

And it was gone.

Clint was gonna shoot somebody.

Just as soon as he figured out who’d taken the trail mix.

yesterday i saw a sad duck in the park who kept getting picked on by the other ducks so today i brought some trail mix and we had a nice lunch together. also i think he might be the duck who pooped on sam last week. if so, he is officially my new best friend.

things i want from supergirl

give me the first time kara is patrolling the skies and she hears maggie’s heartbeat skyrocket. and look, we all know kara’s probably stumbled in on maggie and alex at least once, so kara knows what /that/heartbeat sounds like.

this isn’t that.

this is faster and different and kara as supergirl is worried so she heads that way,

fast.

and maybe it turns out to be nothing, but chances are, it’s not. chances are it’s detective sawyer hauling a little kid behind her, a little boy with a fat lip and a black eye and an arm kara can see that is broken without her x-ray vision. and maybe it’s maggie with her hand protectively on the shoulder of the little boy, keeping him firmly behind her and maybe the other has her gun leveled at the gun leveled at her.

and this was only supposed to be a statement collection maggie will tell kara later - that’s why there was no back up.

but kara worries that she won’t get there fast enough because maggie has a terrified kid in one hand, a gun in the other and her eyes leveled at a man who is threatening to kill her. and kara, well she shows up just in time.

she shows up through a window, skidding through an open door because she used her super hearing and she heard, she /heard/ the way the mans muscles were tensing in his hand. she heard the slightest shift of the loaded gun and kara knew.

so she dove and rolled and skidded and is standing, wobbling, catching a bullet with her fingertips. she’s catching it and clutching it and turning to the man who fired it because

maggie sawyer isn’t allowed to die.

[maggie doesn’t know that yet, but kara will tell her]
