don't change the rules

Sirius and Lupin had given Harry a set of excellent books entitled Practical Defensive Magic and its Use Against the Dark Arts, which had superb, moving color illustrations of all the counterjinxes and hexes it described. Harry flicked through the first volume eagerly; he could see it was going to be highly useful in his plans for the D.A.

this comes from my very staunch headcanon that remus broke sirius out of grimmauld place at least once

  • My team, at the end of the match: Why didn't you heal us?
  • Me: Pharah flirted with me at the start of the match so really I can't be blamed for this.

Unexpected Run-ins || Open

Many times the job called for improvisation, which thankfully, was something that Dean was good at. This time, however, he wondered if he took it too far. Things were already out of hand when he realized that the creature snacking on locals that dwelled in the basement of an abandoned and condemned home was none other than an wendigo. The hunter had never heard of one living so close to civilization. Then again, he wasn’t sure if he called the small town in North Carolina civilization. The homes were spread far apart, all dotted across hilly and forested terrain.

The aforementioned improvisation came into play just as he was attempting to fight off the creature. It was far from his first wendigo, but without his brother at his side, it certainly made things tricky. He was able to lure it out from the basement, but to his dismay, the sun was already setting, meaning the broken windows in the living room didn’t help him. He was already beat up, dealing with a scratch along his torso and bruises to his face, not to mention that all of his weapons had been knocked out of play. 

It was a last ditch resort when he found a stick of dynamite on the dusty living floor. “The hell…” he asked with wide eyes. Before he could question who the previous homeowners were, he heard the scuffle of the wendigo as it clamored into the room. He just had time to pull his lighter from his picket and light the fuse. “Smile, you son of a bitch!” he yelled before he chucked the stick at the creature. He barely had time to turn towards a big double window at the front of the house before the explosion went off. Dean was thrown through the glass and out onto the front yard, landing in a heap amongst the debris. A shadow of someone moved over his face, blocking out the light from the fire. He looked up from where he lay on his back, a half cocked smirk on his face. 

                   “Oh. Hi.”

i keep upping my fucking chapter average word count which is good but then makes each new chapter a Feat

and if you change the rules a little some of the memories that most jut out of the file as Good are, if not in cars, on buses and planes and trains and teaching myself to drive a moped on Kentucky back roads

only: it gets strange here, because there are memories I think of as Good and Vital and ones I’d choose to get back inside of if I could, but they are not Happy

the train journey I took from New York to Kentucky was not an experience in which I was happy. I started it off by sobbing for two full hours. 

but I was fully and absolutely and incontestably fucking alive the whole way.

and I think, whether or not I ought to, I value and crave that more.

anonymous asked:

clexa shes the man au? id read the fuck out of that

yesssss same same someone should def write it

@dearsheroozle​ @dubcliq & I worked it all out so Olivia gets her happy ending plus we erased all that dumb transphobia/homophobia nonsense. 

Ok so, Lexa=Viola obvs. Soccer is her life but her school cuts her team and won’t let her try for the boys team. So she decides to go to the rival school, dressed as a boy (”Alex”), play for their team and prove she’s good enough (it doesn’t matter if there’s a twin or not bc he isn’t involved)

Wells is her new roommate, a super good dude, who agrees to help her make the soccer team and in exchange Lexa will talk to the girl he has a huge crush on for him, aka Clarke. 

Problem: Lexa is totally focused on soccer and doesn’t realize Clarke has a crush on “Alex” instead and only thinks of Wells as a friend. 

Cue romcom shenanigans etc

Fast forward to the carnival. Lexa shows up w her friends (just as herself) and has to avoid Wells and all her schoolmates in case they recognize her. Her friends convince her to do the kissing booth bc its for charity, not realizing Clarke is the kisser until she reaches the booth. Clarke luckily doesn’t recognize her. They kiss and both feel the sparks but Lexa is conflicted bc her whole disguise act (clarke would hate her if she found out!) +soccer, etc and Clarke is conflicted bc she likes Alex doesn’t she??  Romcom shenanigans amiright

Anyway so Clarke decides to up her game w Alex and asks out Wells to make ‘him’ jealous. Lexa is ofc super suspicious bc she knows Clarke only thinks of Wells as a friend and Wells is such a good dude, she doesn’t want him to get hurt. So Lexa keeps SUPER CLOSE TABS on Clarke for ESPIONAGE REASONS and in the meantime keeps thinking about their kiss and accidentally falls super hard for Clarke whoops 

MEANWHILE the soccer match is approaching and Lexa is working hard to be a starter. NIGHT BEFORE THE MATCH, Clarke just goes for it and kisses ‘Alex’ and runs away. Wells sees this and gets into a huge fight w Lexa over it and Lexa tells him everything, including her own feelings for Clarke. Wells forgives her bc he knows there’s no spark between him and Clarke anyway plus he kind of has a new crush on this guy on his team?? 

Lexa comes clean to her team/coach and they let her play as herself bc shes good enough and the gendered rules are dumb anyway. She plays and they crush her former school, proving her point, etc. After the game she goes to apologize to Clarke and Clarke reveals she knew from the kiss the night before and even tho she’s still mad about the lying, she gets it and they kiss. THE END.

Thanks to all of you who make this a fun place to share my love for Jon and Bon Jovi  ♥

Another good example to illustrate the complexity of human motivation is the practice of ‘work to rule’, where workers slow output by strictly following the rules that govern their tasks. You may wonder how workers can hurt their employers by working according to the rule. However, this semi-strike method - known also as the ‘Italian strike’ and as ‘sciopero bianco’ or ‘white strike’ by Italians) - is known to reduce output by 30-50 per cent. This is because not everything can be specified in employment contracts (rules) and therefore all production processes rely heavily on workers’ goodwill to do extra things that are not required by their contract or exercise initiatives and take shortcuts to expedite things, when the rules are too cumbersome. The rules behind such non-selfish behaviours are varied - fondness of their jobs, pride in their workmanship, self-respect, solidarity with their colleagues, trust in their managers, loyalty to the company - but the bottom line is that companies, and thus our economy, would grind to a halt if people acted in a totally selfish way, as they are assumed to do in free-market economics.
