double contractions

A few thoughts after today's shit show:

First, this is just a friendly reminder that you do not owe these boys anything! We all spend our free time here because we love them, but we all need to remember that our mental health comes first. If the latest round of interviews (Dick Wattpad) has upset you, please take a step back and do something else with your time! Read a book (or fanfic), paint, play an instrument, bake some cupcakes, take a bubble bath, whatever you need to do to unwind. Liam and Zayn will still be here regardless of your personal involvement, and I guarantee that they would want you to take care of yourself.

Second: Don’t be afraid to think for yourself; your instincts are usually right. If something about a situation seems wrong, it probably is! I know it’s difficult to listen to lies coming from our boys in print and in person, and it may be really easy to take them at face value. However, as with everything surrounding this band, nothing is as it seems. A comment in an interview cannot erase the YEARS of history these boys have, just like reminiscing about a relationship and a child cannot erase the ridiculously shady circumstances behind them. We know these boys have been forced to push lies in the past, and we have no evidence that things have changed for ANY of them (all of OT5 is still trapped, regardless of what they say about being “free”). Use your head and call them on their BS. Also, if you do acknowledge that Liam’s comments about Zayn seem odd, maybe you should check into the legitimacy of the rest of the interview. (Dick Wattpad always pushes official narratives, so maybe you can pick out his priorities from that interview).

Third: I’ve been saying this for this whole radio tour, but it’s worth repeating. Liam Payne is an excellent liar. He is fully training to deal with the press and he has had years of experience to perfect pushing the official narrative. Liam saved 1D from embarrassment time and time again in interviews. So, why are people surprised that he is so good at convincing people of a narrative that is favorable to Simon and company? He smiles a lot and moves his hands and talks really fast, and tries to end on an emotional note to distract people into cooing or laughing with him. It’s all about misdirection. Has anyone stopped to wonder why Liam, who is on a radio tour to promote his upcoming album, has spent almost no time actually talking about his music? Maybe it’s because the entire point of his current stuntlationship is to promote a certain washed up girlbander with a nasty past who has convenient ties to good ol Simon, and who is probably going to be working on some music of her own in the near future. What better way to break into uncharted territory (the United States) than to ride on the coat tails of an attractive young singer who is destined for great things.

In conclusion, take care of yourself. Think for yourself. Take everything with a grain of salt. Don’t let current disappointments distract you from the truth.

Oh and buy Strip That Down! Liam isn’t responsible for his nasty narrative; we all know he loves Zayn more than anyone.

The Secret To Shinhwa’s Longevity? The Answer is Their Leader, Eric Mun.

Eric Mun, one of the best leaders, if not the best, sets an example of what true leadership is. What has he done for Shinhwa that the group stayed intact, becoming the longest-running idol group in Kpop, with no disbandment & no member change?

Let’s start from the very beginning. After winning a street dance championship in the US, Eric was selected by Lee Soo Man in March 1997 & he debuted as the leader of the 6-member-group Shinhwa on 24 March 1998


In 2003, Shinhwa’s 5-year-contract with SM came to an end. At that time, many 1st generation groups faced disbandment, like H.O.T, Secks Skies, S.E.S. So it was expected that Shinhwa would disband too. Following the group’s contract expiration, SM wanted to disband the group & offered solo contracts to only some members. But Shinhwa’s aim was that the 6 of them would stay together as a group and could not be separated. So, Shinhwa refused the solo contract offers with SM, which was undoubtedly a shock in the industry. So far no artist had ever dared to offend the big boss of the Korean entertainment industry, and they were the first.

So, what did Eric do to avoid disbandment and keep the members together after the contract expired? 

Eric, the leader who chose to keep his group together over money. His first priority was his group. 

He was offered solo contracts that were FOUR times more than the other members. “Honestly, others would think about those offers for a month, but Eric rejected them immediately, just to let the members be together.”


Truthfully, how many people do you know that can make such sacrifice, whether in real life or in idol world?!!!! .. Eric could’ve said, ‘screw Shinhwa’ and then accept SM’s offer to double his contract 4 times on the condition that they disband Shinhwa and he go solo.. But Eric’s genuine love & loyalty for his group couldn’t be replaced by money or securing a place in SM. He turned down the offers IMMEDIATELY & & took Shinhwa to another company, which was even a great risk as they were leaving the big boss of kpop entertainment to start again in another much smaller company. The result didn’t matter to him as long as remained with the members. 
imagine that Eric accepted those tempting solo offers, then we wouldn’t have Shinhwa anymore. The fact that the six of them are able to stay together now, Eric contributed A LOT to it.

and to Eric, his choice wasn’t a sacrifice .. it was the best decision he has made in his life.


After Eric chose Shinhwa over money & suggested moving to another agency, then came the next problem. Leader Eric had to fight for the rights to “Shinhwa’s” name.

After Shinhwa left SM among much controversy & refused to extend their solo contracts, then came a huge problem. The members needed to continue using the same name “Shinhwa”. But since SM still owned the rights to Shinhwa’s name, so Eric had to put himself through a crash course in legalities to resolve Shinhwa’s contract issues. Eric was the one who negotiated with the management and no one will ever know how much hardship he had to endure during the negotiations. Eric went to court against SM to retain the rights for Shinhwa’s name. He even studied law to find a way for Shinhwa to continue being active under the same name. (Bear in mind that he was only 24 years old back then!!) .. He paid a HUGE sum of his OWN money to buy the name’s rights.. Eric really went through hell during that period until in the end, Shinhwa won & left SM with the rights to their name.

Can you imagine that a young man in his early 20s, gave up on massively tempting solo offers and chose to go through hell & fight for his team just to remain with his band mates & keep the group intact?!!! .. who else can do such thing?!! .. what a true leadership & loyalty! 


It’s also Eric who negotiated -alone- with other companies till he chose the best offer for his group. Then Shinhwa moved to Good Entertainment. But unfortunately, not so many people were pleased with that decision & so they tried their best to bring Shinhwa down, asking them to disband like what other groups did back then.

In 2004, a journalist once wrote an article heavily criticizing Shinhwa & blatantly used personal attacks on the Shinhwa members implying that they are failed musicians who try too hard with solo activities. He proceeded to slam Shinhwa with ruthless criticism, leading to a big media frenzy. It was then that Eric stepped up once again as the leader to speak out. He made a powerful reply to the reporter & published it on the Internet, asking for a more meaningful review. That reply of Eric went viral & found its way to the official school books in Korea, marking him as the 1st & only artist to have such feat. He ended the letter with: “It’s not so easy to see Shinhwa. If there’s anything, you can look for me.” & this line became very famous.

Here’s an excerpt of his lengthy letter..


WOW! such powerful reply! Eric might be 4D & act like a cute kid, but when someone or something threatens Shinhwa, he turns into a totally different person. totally dependable & trustworthy leader.

When Eric was at the peak of his success, being the nation’s flower boy after starring in the very popular drama “Firebird” in 2004, & dominating almost all CFs and he was dubbed the “CF King” .. Many thought that he would leave Shinhwa & there were many articles released that urged him to go solo & pursue his successful career as an actor & rapper away from Shinhwa.

“I remember a conversation I had with Eric over drinks back when we were filming Firebird (Phoenix). I said ’“It’s a good idea to go into acting. Anyway, you can only be an idol for a few years, just make acting your lifelong career”. Eric turned serious and replied “NO! I’ll be with Shinhwa for more than 10 years, for a lifetime. Please wait and see!”
- Firebird Director San Ray’s twitter (2012.03)

Eric strictly clarified to everyone what his top priority is, which is the group Shinhwa. Eric: “Shinhwa is everything. Without Shinhwa there won’t be the present me, and I would not meet precious friends and members who love me.”
                 Eric: “Shinhwa is our root and it has to be our core.”


This man’s loyalty & devotion to his group is simply unbelievable!

2008 - The group hiatus due to military service. Eric is always the leader who knew how to keep his word.

In 2008, Shinhwa held their last concert before the 4-year hiatus due to the army enlistment. In that concert, they promised the fans that Shinhwa will come back after all members finish their military service. “Shinhwa will come back, please wait for us”


But .. during those 4 years of military service hiatus, Shinhwa was on the verge of disbandment. So the dependable leader Eric stepped up again to keep their promise to the fans & keep the group together.


and that’s how Shinhwa came back to us again, thanks to Leader Eric who lived up to his position as the best leader & the big brother to his group members and brought them together again. Couldn’t be more grateful to this AWESOME man! he’s truly a man of his words! .. Thanks to him, we have Shinhwa today!

Eric: “Shinhwa must go on forever. Even if there is no company that wants us, we might just form our own company and carry on.”

In 2007, some members left Good Ent. (the company Shinhwa moved into after SM) & many people thought Shinhwa were going to disband. But the loyal leader Eric stepped up again and assured that Shinhwa will go on forever even if there’s no company that wants them, Leader Eric came up with the idea of forming their own company! He’s truly the leader that thinks ahead & seeks for what’s best for his group! to this extend he’s so loyal & dedicated to Shinhwa!


Eric’s efforts to gain the full rights to Shinhwa’s name.

But .. to establish Shinhwa’s company, there was a serious issue needed to be resolved. Shinhwa didn’t have the full rights to their name yet, since SM handed over the full rights of “Shinhwa’s” name to Jun Media Ent. in 2005.
So before establishing “Shinhwa Company”, leader Eric went through a very tough time & had loooong negotiations with Jun Media to use Shinhwa’s trademark. And finally, after reaching an agreement, Eric’s dream came true & Shinhwa Company was established in 2011, marking Shinhwa as the first & only idol group to establish their own agency with their own name & personally run it. 


But due to many legal issues concerning Jun Media, Shinhwa filed a lawsuit and leader Eric went to court against Jun Media in 2012. He went through hell again with many trials & appeals & temporarily changing the company name to “ShinCom Ent.”. Until finally In 2015, Shinhwa won and gained the full rights to their name after 12 years. 
This man, Eric, used to show up in varieties, all smiling & laughing, acting 4D & as 3 yrs old kid, while he had such huge burden over his shoulders, fighting for years for Shinhwa to continue with their name. He makes me speechless!

The members expressed their gratitude & thanks to Eric as he was the one who struggled the most during the the whole process.
Such a dependable Leader! 


The leader that always thinks of Shinhwa as family.

Eric has always been the dependable big brother to all the members. “I always think of the members as my real brothers”. And as a real brother, Eric is always there for the members when anyone of them faces troubles & does his best to help the members out.


Eric, to help Minwoo out, gathered the members & suggested that everyone of them contributes a sum of money so that they help Minwoo overcome his financial trouble as loyal brothers. 
This man continuously sets examples of how true friendship should be.


When Eric earned a large sum of money in CFs, he split up his pay and supported other members who had financial difficulties. When he was dominating CFs, he called the members to his house and gave them bonus money. He’s also filmed CFs originally meant for himself but he got the company to include the rest of the Shinhwa members.

Shinhwa’s appearance for China gag concert in 2015 was originally meant to have Eric as the only guest, but he refused & told the production team that if it wasn’t a SHINHWA segment, he wouldn’t attend. So, Shinhwa as OT6 was casted instead.


One of the things that make other groups disband is when the members care more about their solo work than the group itself.
Then comes leader Eric, who leads by example. For his solo activities, he always thinks of “us” before “me”! his group always comes first.

To Eric, Shinhwa always comes as a top priority even before his solo work. When he does a solo activity, he does it because he knows it will benefit the group itself, not doing solo to shine away from the group. He does his solo work to promote Shinhwa.


  Even when he gets a solo activity, he never decides on it by himself… Eric will first get the agreement of the members if there is something he wants to do for himself. If there is a solo activity that he wishes to do, he would first gather the opinions of the members & seek the agreements of all the members first!!. 
Seriously who ever does something like this?!!!! .. such an attitude of his sets an example of what made it possible for Shinhwa to promote separately and together. 
Eric: “Rather than my solo activities, Shinhwa’s activities are more important.”

 

another secret to longevity? it’s the leader’s genuine care and support to the other members’ solo activities. Eric always sets an example for others to follow. 

Dongwan: “Eric always thinks about every member, and seeing how he helps make us take care of each other.“

Eric has always been a truly supportive & selfless Leader. Not being selfish & focusing only on his solo activities, but he always helps his members in their solo careers, showing ultimate support & encouragement to them & happily agrees to feature in their albums, and always expresses how proud he is as his members are doing great in their solos. While staying at home, he keeps on monitoring their performances & giving them very useful feedback & advises.

Eric: “Aside from our group activities, I’m really happy to see the members do well in their solo careers. If I can offer my help in any way, I’d like to help them continuously.”


  & what does he gain in return for his massive help & as feat. fees in his members’ albums?! .. Pizza or sunglasses :D


Eric, the leader who leads from behind & puts the members in front. He doesn’t like to stand out and always stays away from the limelight, happily giving it to the members. 

and there is always that noticeable thing about Leader Eric. He has always been supporting Shinhwa from the back since debut. Never been bossy. He always stays away from the limelight, happily giving it to the members. You’ll find him standing quietly in the interviews. So humble & quiet to the extend that many people are still not aware that Eric is the leader of Shinhwa. This is because he is a man with few words and doesn’t stand on the front of the group. His true features of taking care of his people shone brightly as him working behind the scenes. But when Shinhwa encounter a problem, he takes the front line, protecting the group & the members.


and after all of this, it’s expected that Eric will be thinking highly of himself as one of best leaders, if not the best ..
but ..this man is so humble to an extend you can’t believe! 

Another thing about Eric is that he never thinks highly of himself!! he’s one of the most humble people you can ever meet!!. Like he’s one of the best leaders, if not the best, the loyal, selfless & dependable leader that has been keeping Shinhwa for such a long time in the industry & still, he doesn’t think that he does something extraordinary!! 


Seriously, how can he even be this humble?!!.. Eric, you’ve been setting standards of how ideal leadership is! 

Whenever someone praises or says something nice about him, he’ll do some funny stuff to cut that person off & move to another subject. Like what he did in Shinhwa’s latest concert when Dongwan thanked him for his great efforts in getting the full rights to Shinhwa’s name back. Eric kept on kissing Dongwan to cut him off.


Or when someone praises his outer looks, & it’s known that Eric is one of the most handsome Korean celebs (he was dubbed Korea’s handsome representative) but he never brags about his handsomeness for even once, and when others tell him that he’s handsome, he’s gets so shy & flustered & tries to change topics. 


and even though he’s the mighty Eric, with more than 20 years in the industry, regardless of his fame, he remains the humble Eric who still bows 90 degrees to even the hoobaes & the fans. Forever humble as Day 1. Eric really sets an example that no matter how famous you are, you should always be humble & down to earth with everyone.


The leader that always thinks of Shinhwa before himself !

& he also doesn’t think he’s doing something extraordinary!!! 


and even during his solo activities, he seizes every chance to promote Shinhwa & the other members’ solo events. 


Then there is this amazingly meaningful quote of Eric, that makes me feel so lucky for being a Shinhwa Changjo ..

“It’s impossible for Shinhwa to disband now even if we wanted to. Shinhwa doesn’t just belong to us, it also belongs to the fans and people who love us.”

To any group, before disbanding, think deeply of this quote. Your group doesn’t just belong to you, it also belongs to your fans & people who love you!


Now.. With every anniversary we celebrate with Shinhwa, the group that debuted in 1998 & still going strong with no disbandment & no member change, let’s forever remember that the main reason behind this is Eric, the best leader we could ever ask for. The leader who knew how to keep his group intact & overcome all troubles they’ve been through since debut. That troubles that could’ve easily made any other group disband.
Eric always puts Shinhwa as a top priority over anything else .. To him, the group always comes first. He really lives for Shinhwa!

“Eric is really like an otaku. If he gets addicted to something he’ll bury himself at home but after we left our first agency, as the leader of Shinhwa, he became the otaku of Shinhwa. Even now, he worries a lot for Shinhwa and is also in charge of dealing with external matters. He is a leader I’m thankful to and can trust.” - Dongwan


Thank you leader Eric for all of what you’ve done & still doing to Shinhwa. Thank you for keeping them as forever six .. thank you for always protecting us, Shinhwa Changjo .. Thank you for always protecting Orange .. Thank you for always protecting Shinhwa Company .. Thank you for always choosing Shinhwa over anything else no matter what the temptation is .. Everyone of us appreciates your great efforts & dedication for Shinhwa. Plz continue on leading Shinhwa for more anniversaries & more success. 2gether 4ever, walking on the same road. Never apart, friends till the end. ♥♥

#HappyEricDay ♥♥  Happiest birthday to our awesome leader Eric ♥♥

Domino Divination

If you are like me and love the feel of runes but don’t have your own set, dominoes can be the next best thing!

How to
Put all the dominoes in a bag or flip them all over onto their fronts and mix them up. For a brief reading draw out three dominoes and turn them over. For a reading on the whole year draw out one dominoes and add up all the dots. Superstition says to never do a reading in a Monday or a Friday

Mpreg Fic- Part 2 (Ending!)

I’m super excited to have finished this!!! I really love this and thank you for all the encouragement! By the way, happy Easter! Time zones are weird and stuff but it’s Easter where I am so 👏 And if you don’t celebrate that, then hey! Just enjoy your day pal. Now enjoy this bag of sin! 

Part 1

Genre- Fluff

Word Count- 967


Dan was in hysterics. His water broke two weeks early and they didn’t even have a baby bag ready. Dan remembered he promised Phil he’d film this process, so he rushed to his room, pulled out his phone, and started filming himself as he hurriedly packed a baby bag. “Hello internet. Well… My water just broke! I’m almost finished packing a bag and I’m about to go wake Phil!”

Dan finished up with the bag and walked to Phil’s room. “Phil?” The boy jolted awake and Dan turned on his lamp.

“Dan? Why’d you turn the lights on? And why are you filming me?”

“My water broke.”

Phil was up in an instant. “I’ll get the bag ready! I need to call a cab! Oh my God, it’s happening! Phil tried to run off to get ready, but Dan stuck his hand in front of him, laughing.

“Phil, I already packed the bag! Get dressed, I’ll call the cab.” Dan stopped recording and called a cab as Phil got dressed.


The two held hands in the cab, deciding not to vlog from there. The cab driver probably literally hasn’t seen weirder. Dan felt a contraction and doubled over. Phil squeezed his hand and whispered, “It’s okay… You’ll be okay.” Dan tried to convince himself that he was okay. He was okay.


Dan waddled into the hospital, getting multiple weird looks. Each one of them got shot down by Phil, who was doing his best to defend his boyfriend. They were soon situated in a room, and they turned the camera back on. Phil held the phone and directed the camera towards a smiling Dan, lying in a hospital gown on the bed. “Hi!”

“So Dan is officially in labor! Shouldn’t you tweet that?”

“Oh, yeah.” Dan pulled out his phone and started typing.

“We don’t know how long it’ll be, but the baby will be born today!” Phil grinned like an idiot at the camera, hopelessly excited. He was going to be a father. It was unbelievable to Phil. He smiled and walked over to Dan. “How are you doing, Dan?”

“I’m-” Dan started cringing. He was having a contraction. “In pain. Contractions suck ass.”

“Good to know.” Phil cut off the camera and sat down beside him. “Dan, are you okay?”

“I’m better than okay, Phil.” Dan didn’t sound okay at all, nor did he look it. He was doubled over in pain. But then the contraction ended and Dan sat up and took Phil’s hand. “I’m going to have a baby, Phil. I obviously never thought this was something I’d be doing, but here we are. Now we get to have our own child instead of having to adopt! Our blood and genes combined into this little bundle of joy. I’m way more than okay.”

“Now I am too. I love you, Dan.”

“I love you too, Phil. So much.”


Dan was screaming. He’d been in labor for twelve hours. Phil had been rewatching all the footage he had from the day. He watched as Dan got visibly more tired and beaten. He was suffering, but soon it would all be over. Phil looked over at Dan, who was breathing heavily after a horrible contraction. Phil turned on the camera, as they hadn’t filmed for about an hour. He was trying to get at least one clip from every hour, and then he could edit in the times. It was going to be amazing. “How are you now?”

“I just had a horrific contraction. I’m okay now though. I think it’s coming soon, Phil.”

Phil smiled widely and turned the camera towards him. “You hear that, guys? The baby’s coming soon!” Suddenly Dan started screaming. Phil turned the camera around and ran over to Dan. “Oh my god, Dan?”

“Get… The… Doctors…” Phil shut off the camera and ran blindly for a doctor. Nothing bad could happen to Dan or the baby. Not now.


Dan’s such a drama queen. He screamed for Phil to get to the doctors just for a contraction. Of course, it proved to be helpful, as they told him it was time for the baby. Phil pulled out the camera and pushed record. “Guess what guys? It’s time for the baby! Don’t worry. Dan’s fine. It was just a contraction. You ready, Dan?”

Not now, Phil!

“I guess he’s understandably moody. Well, I’ll be back with the baby pictures soon!” Phil cut off the camera and ran to take Dan’s hand. “You can do this, Dan.”

“Can I? Like is this even possible?”

“At this point, anything is possible.” Phil smiled at Dan, his biology-defying beauty, and the boy smiled back. It was time for the baby. 


“Push!” Dan had almost done it. There was a doctor waiting to deliver the baby. Not a bit of the entire thing made sense, but it was happening. Phil still hadn’t let go of Dan’s hand. Dan was thankful for him. He could do anything with Phil by his side. “One more push should do it!” This is it.


“Meet Chester Wolf Howlester,” Dan said to the camera. Phil snickered. “What? We had to have some fun with this. And it’s a normal name, so we’re not subjecting him to eternal suffering. Except for the fact that he has us for parents.”

“You’re right.” Phil smiled at his boyfriend holding his new baby boy. He took multiple pictures, then had the doctors take some of both of them with the baby. Then, Dan asked him if he wanted to hold the baby. He took the child in his arms and smiled down at the little bundle of joy he created. This child shouldn’t exist.

ADVICE NEEDED - WORKPLACE AND HEALTH

Basically, I got in (unofficial) trouble a few weeks ago for being off sick as I’ve had too many absences. I was off during an overtime shift for having very bad period pains - causing me to feel physically sick and also have a huge headache.

Over a year ago now I was off for a few weeks due to mental health issues and since then I was off once for having a stomach bug (over a year ago now as well), got sent home once for having a panic attack (August), was off as I was just very unwell - sick, stressed, idk I just didn’t feel right (October), got sent home another time for a similar reason why I was off a few weeks ago - I kept puking and looked like I was gonna faint (December) and was off another due to a mix of anxiety and illness (late February).

I know this is A LOT but technically the ones where I got sent home don’t count as I never had to certify myself or do any back to work forms. 

Also, when I was off with my absence before, my boss (who, like most of the management team is very understanding) said: “I know why you’re ill quite a lot and it’s okay because I know you try.“ 

However, he didn’t do my last back to work meeting with me and made my other manager do it, who is equally as nice but told me off unofficially and advised that I should have just came in so I could have got sent home (although I physically couldn’t move due to pain - I live about a mile walk from the bus stop and then have to endure a 20 min bus ride to work - I couldn’t afford a taxi as I was broke too). He then unofficially (again) advised I get medical evidence off my doctor otherwise I’ll be disciplined.

I like in the UK (Scotland) and I’m unsure about the whole thing - I know companies cannot discriminate against people will illnesses. I also know they can dismiss you if they feel like your illnesses/disabilities will be worsened because of work. I am also aware a lot of places have a "X amount of absences in a year and you get investigated” sorta thing but my work know me - they know I’m not a slacker and believe me when I’m off. 

Since I’m registered with a GP (Doctor) where I used to live (where an abusive family member lives) it’s hard for me to see them. I’ve went to the doctors three times in my life about mental health (1) when I was 16 and got very stressed during my exam period, I was taking panic attacks daily and crying myself to sleep - I remember googling it and it sounded like I had depression - I was told it was “just stress” (2) I went again in my last year of high school to be told quite bluntly that my symptoms “sound like anxiety” and was advised to go to bed early and eat three meals a day (3) I moved to go to university and only made it down when I started to take really frequent panic attacks again, the doctor said to me AGAIN that it “sounds like anxiety” and read out a list of symptoms and asked me if I had them, he then gave me a doctors note for work and uni which LITERALLY FUCKING SAYS “___ has been taking panic attacks and is feeling anxious”. 

  • Have I been diagnosed or not? 
  • Should I consider going back to this GP asap and getting a diagnosis? What would I even say? (I was considering telling the doctor all the things I TRY to do yet I either can’t or still feel like shit)
  • Should I wait until I can register where I live now?

The advice has all been unofficial from my work AND as I said my boss is very supportive - the other manager who half told me off is also supportive. I sometimes have bad days where I come into work and everyones always so great to me - I have to give a big shoutout to my boss for actually knowing how to deal with people who are mentally ill (one of my coworkers has bpd and they way he talks to her is amazing - never nasty or defensive) - like he’ll make me face the public/do stuff as opposed to hiding me away in the back if I’m feeling anxious but will equally not push me, and if I’m truly feeling terrible he’ll let me go home early or allow me to take a breather or assign me work through the back.

Like, I don’t think they’d want to fire me if they could help it as I’m always up for being extra hours and I deliver great customer service on my bad days and excellent customer service on my good days. The area manager likes me a lot and I’m always trying to help implement new ideas to increase footfall, conversion, customer satisfaction, etc.

I’m worried that I’ll get in trouble if I do need another day off within the next few months. Other co-workers are late quite a lot without giving notice (as someone who relies on public transport if my bus is even 5 mins late I ring the store to let them know), come in hungover, slack off, phone in sick when they’re not (or when somethings going around that I usually come in when I have it)… so I would think it was unfair that I would get in trouble for this. I’m also pretty miffed that me calling out on an OVERTIME SHIFT is what’s fucking me over - like, I agreed to do this shift two days before and I was working over double my contract for the week too.

I’m not really sure if I even did get notes from my doctor how this would help? Considering they’re all fully aware of my health already - would it be for HR? Are they giving me this advice in advanced cos they like me - just so I can cover my ass?

Any ideas? Personal experience, knowledge of what other companies do, the law, whatever will be useful to me because as you can imagine all of this is actually making me more anxious.

Your ficlets are awesome! Thanks for the hard work. Wondering if you could write a birth scene? (Sorry I know it's not everyone's cup of tea)

Well lucky for you it’s exactly my cup of tea! I went with post-serum Steve, because pre-serum, ball-of-sickness Steve giving birth sounds like asking for trouble and hospital births around the 1930s/40s were an actual mess so…yeah… Hope you enjoy! -Jenna

“Please come out,” I said softly, my hands running over my very pregnant belly. “Mommy and Daddy are so excited to meet you. Plus, Mommy is very uncomfortable, and-”

“Sweetheart, dinner is ready!” Peter announced, strolling intro the living room. There was a grin perched on his lips as he looked down at me from where he stood next to the couch. I braced my arms on either side of myself, taking a deep breath. “Do you need some help?”

“I can get it,” I insisted, trying to push myself up and off of the couch. It wasn’t working and I was getting frustrated.

“Here,” Peter said gently, lightly gripping my arms and lifting me to my feet. One of his hands moved to my back to steady me.

Accidental Roommates

A/N: Sorry this took so long! Also, sorry for any mistakes. I really wanted to get this up now, but I’ll edit it later.


My very first apartment on my own had me feeling nervous, but excited at the same time. I had lived in Seoul with my best friend for 3 years, but she decided to move back to LA a month ago. I had hopes that she would return, but the two bedroom apartment rent was becoming too much for me to handle alone. This new one bedroom apartment was cheaper and a better commute to my job. The downside was that it was on the 14th floor, but there was an elevator, only one. And if that one elevator broke down, I don’t know how I could ever make it up 14 flights of stairs. The elevator issue was far from my mind when I signed the renter’s agreement contract. When I first came to look at the apartment it had a giant window in the living room with a view that overlooked the city. I fell in love immediately and planned to have many cups of tea or coffee in front of that window.

I smiled to myself as I unlocked the door to my apartment. Upon entering the sound of low music filled my ears and confusing washed over me. I stepped out and took a peak at the apartment number. “1403.” I cautiously walked back inside. “Hello?” There were half opened boxes and some furniture set in no particular place. The sound of footsteps shuffled toward me. A guy with just a towel on entered the room. He had just gotten out of the shower and was towel drying his hair when his eyes met mine.

“YAH! How’d you get in here?!”

“I think there’s—“

“If you leave now, I won’t call the police.”

“—some confusion. Police?”

“Yeah, the police.” He gripped my arm and guided me toward the door.

“But, this is my apartment! I put down a $500 deposit.”

“You fangirls are really cunning.”

“Pfft, fangirl?” I removed myself from his grip and pulled out my cell.

“Are you taking a picture!?” He tried to cover himself with the towel he placed around his neck.

“As if. You take enough shirtless pics yourself.” I clicked my tongue in disgust.

“Get out!” He continued to urge me to leave my apartment.

“Not until I speak to the landlord.” I stood my ground and dialed the landlord’s number.

“I’m telling you, you’ve got the wrong place.” He frustratingly sighed.

After an hour later, we discovered that the landlord, an elderly woman, had double signed a contract for this apartment. Her grandson was kind enough to come see us and sort out the details for us. Though, he couldn’t find a resolution for us…other than sharing the apartment until another one became available.

“I’ve paid a deposit for an apartment, there’s no way I’m leaving.”

“My things were here first, I’m definitely not leaving.”

“Then it’s settled, you’ll both stay here. Sorry for the inconvenience. I’ll return both your deposits by the end of the week.” The landlord’s grandson stated.

Jay and I sat awkwardly on his newly bought couch.

“Take the bed, I’ll take the couch.” Jay sighed as he fumbled through the boxes searching for something.

“I’m not going to take your bed. It’s new right? You should sleep in it. I’ll take the couch.”

“Stop being stubborn, I said I’d take the couch.” He pulled out a blanket from one of the boxes and tossed it on the couch.

“Really, I’m fine. I’ll take the—“

“Look, it’s not in me to let a girl sleep on the couch. So just take the bed.” He demanded this time.

The remaining week went by in a flash. Jay and I worked out a partnership. I slept in his bed, while he slept on the couch. I woke up earlier than him, so I prepared breakfast. I woke him up before I would leave so that he wasn’t late getting to the studio. My schedule allowed me to get home earlier than him, so I also prepared dinner. Though, sometimes I cheated and ordered takeout.

“You made breakfast?” I walked into the kitchen rubbing my eyes.

“Well, you’ve been making me breakfast all week, so I figured since I have the day off I would treat you.” He handed me a plate.

“Wow! Pancakes?!”

“You seem surprised that I can cook.”

“I thought you only knew how to take shirtless selfies.” I teased.

“Are you a fan or not?”

“Eh, I follow you on instagram.” I shrugged.

Jay insisted on following me on instagram and then proceeded to go through my account. We moved our conversation to the couch as he asked me about certain pictures. He told me about his new album and his plans for releasing new music. Our conversation became more intimate when he started talking about his family. I gave him my full undivided attention as he discussed his hardships.

The day progressed and before we knew it night had fallen. He tried to hide it from me, but he received a few phone calls asking him to go out. He rejected them all and listened to my journey of moving to Seoul. We ordered beer and chicken and continued our conversation waiting for the delivery man.

“What attracted you to this apartment?” He suddenly asked.

“That.” I pointed to the window and smiled. He got up and walked over to the window. “It’s beautiful isn’t it?” We stared at the night view watching the building lights light up the city. I placed my back against the window and closed my eyes. “It’s calming and almos—“

My eyes shot open and were immediately faced with Jay’s closed eyes. His lips were soft and his kiss gentle. I closed my eyes allowing myself to fall into the moment. His hands rested themselves on my waist as they roamed down to my hips. I slipped my hands under his shirt feeling his torso that I only saw in pictures. His lips twisted into a smile against mine and he pulled away. In a flash his shirt was on the floor and his lips were at my neck. A moan escaped my lips as he softly nibbled on my neck.

“I wanna hear more of those moans.” His warm breath tickled my neck. He slipped his hand down my sweats and stroked his digit on my opening. I gripped his shoulders to keep steady. His thumb massaged my clit, while his digit continued to stroke me. I grabbed him by his hair and brought his lips to mine again. His tongue demanded entrance, exploring and battling with my tongue. I whimpered as he removed his hand from my entrance. “Disappointed?” He whispered against my lips.

“Please don’t tease me.” I pouted. He smiled and slipped his hand down my panties. I moan as he slipped a digit inside.

“Is that better?” He gently bit my bottom lip and pulled.

“Oh my God!” I moaned.

“You’re so wet.” He slipped another digit in and curled his fingers. I gripped on to him as my knees gave out. Jay’s pace quickened taking me to my climax. He slipped his fingers out as I steady my breath. I turned to face the window and pulled pants along with my panties down. I peaked over my shoulder and bit my lip looking at him. Jay smiled as he unzipped his pants and pulled his throbbing member out.

He rubbed himself against my entrance, while his other hand firmly held onto my waist. Jay slowly entered me and released a growl. My fingers gripped the glass on the window and my head fell. He slipped a hand under my top and kneaded my breast.

“Oh, yes.” I moaned as he slid out and in again. His pace picked up and he slammed into me harder. I felt his hand slid to my clit and he began massaging me again. I tried to keep my balance as the sensation of him inside me made me want to collapse to the floor.

“Fuck.” He moaned.

“AH!” I moaned again. My walls began pulsing and sucking him in more.

“Shit, I’m gonna cum.” He continued to thrust inside me, helping me reach my climax once again. He abruptly removed himself from me and pumped himself to continue his pace. He gripped my waist once again as his warm fluid splashed on my backside. He growled releasing one final moan has his hands fell to his side.

The door bell sounded startling both of us.

“Good timing.” I pulled my pants back up. I paid the delivery man and retrieved our food. “Where are you going?” Jay was grabbing his laptop and a jacket.

“I need to get this song out of my head before I forget it.”

“Song?”

“Yeah, you’ve inspired me.” He winked and walked out the door.

Another week had passed and I moved out into my own apartment. We both knew this arrangement was temporary, but that didn’t stop us from pursuing a relationship with each other.

“Coming.” A knock at my door summoned me.

“Hey neighbor,” Jay greeted me with a kiss, “If you ever need anything…sugar…eggs…sex, I’m right across the hall.”

“I have this new bed that needs to be broken in.” I teased.

“I think I could help with that.”

Father’s Day!

It’s Father’s Day in the UK and France, so here’s a fluffy chapter of The Black Cat’s Bride! Continued from here.


“Adrien,” Marinette whined. “It’s too much!”

The blonde replied with a hum, nuzzling against her shoulder.

“Adriennn!” she exclaimed again, pushing him off. “It’s too hot! I can’t sleep.”

The model looked at her fuzzily. “Huh?”

“I’m dying,” she complained, kicking off the sheets.

“Sorry, princess,” Adrien ruffled his hair. They had always joked that he radiated heat, which would be useful in the winter, but not so much during Parisian summer, which had dragged on until late September. There wasn’t a breath of fresh air.

The model got up and switched on the AC, closing the window so it would have the proper affect. He climbed back into bed, kissing his partner on the shoulder, before distancing himself at the other side of the bed. Perhaps it was the cat in him, but he only slept well when snuggling with Marinette. It was shame that at this stage in her pregnancy, with only a few months to go, she was already so uncomfortable and prone to hot flushes.

Adrien drifted into a dream-state, but immediately woke up: Marinette was trembling. She was asleep, the sheet tangled around her waist, but her skin was covered in goosebumps.

“Princess,” Adrien admonished. “You’re going to catch a chill at this rate!”

Her tugged the sheet up to their chins and wrapped himself around her, his chest flush against her bare back. He kissed the top of her head and fell asleep instantly.

*

“Adrien!” Marinette moaned, and once again she was pushing him away. “What are you doing?”

The model pouted. “You were shivering, my love.”

“Sorry,” Marinette sighed. “This is useless, isn’t it? Why don’t you sleep in the guest bed? You have work tomorrow.”

Adrien rolled out of the bed, and turned off the air conditioning, and once again opened the window. He swiped Plagg from the little nest he had created on the bedside table with Tikki. He gave a yawn, and transformed, the cool black leather coating his body.

“C’mere, princess,” he said, scooting against her back. “Better?”

She sighed with contentment, pulling his arm around so that it covered her bump.

“Yes, thank you, kitty.”

He gave a happy rumble, before kissing her neck sleepily.

*

Chat had been fighting crime solo for the last few months, since Tikki refused point-blank to let Marinette transform. She had cried about it for a while, but Adrien had gently talked her around. It wasn’t safe for her to be swinging from rooftops anymore.

He alternated with day and night patrols, and today, breathing in the cool autumn air, Chat missed his lady. Marinette had expressed concern that she wouldn’t be able to fit in the suit again, until Tikki had explained it didn’t work like that.

The baby would be arriving in a few weeks, Chat thought, with a cheesy smile on his face. No criminal could put him in a bad mood today.

*

“Alya,” Marinette suddenly gripped her friend’s arm.

“You’re right,” her best friend reflected. “I don’t really need another camera. I mean, what with Ladybug being MIA right now, it’s not like I have much to shoot anyway…”

“Alya!” Marinette groaned, tugged her friend’s attention away from the tech display. “I think…I just had a contraction.”

“What?” Alya spun, holding her friend by the elbows. “Shit, Mari, you’re like a ghost. Isn’t it too early for this?”

“I need to sit down,” she gasped, clutching her bump.

“I’m going to call Adrien,” Alya said, helping her friend into a nearby seat.

“He’s…working,” Marinette explained. “He won’t pick up.”

*

Chat hummed happily as he chased down a thief, returning the handbag to the old lady with a flourish and sitting on the perpetrator until the police arrived. His baton buzzed and he slid it open. Only one person had the number to text him.

 Princess: It’s started.

“Shit!” Chat jumped to his feet, frantically looking to and fro. Of course the cops weren’t here yet.

The thief, a young boy in his twenties, made to flee, but Chat yanked him back.

“It’s your lucky day, pal,” the black cat said. “I’m going to let you go, but if you ever mug an old lady again, I will claw your eyes out. Got it?”

“Yes, sir!” the young lad squeaked, and Chat nodded.

“Good.”

 CN: Where are you???

*

“Chat Noir?” Alya gasped, her hands automatically patting her pocket for her phone. The hero had suddenly appeared in the middle of the electronics department, and the crowd parted for him, trying to take videos and photos.

“I’m going to kill you,” Marinette gasped out, bent double as the contractions hit again.

“Sorry, princess,” Chat grinned apologetically. “But I had to get here as fast as I could.”

“What?” Alya’s fingers froze. “Why are you…”

She was silenced as Chat carefully lifted Marinette into his arms. “Just doing my public duty,” the black cat winked.

“Why didn’t you detransform, you stupid cat?” she whined, hiding her face against his chest.

“I didn’t really think,” he admitted. “Blame me once we get you to hospital.”

*

Adrien did de-transform once they reached the hospital, after Marinette’s begging between contractions. Since she was a few weeks early, she was admitted as a precaution.

“This is so frustrating,” Marinette mumbled, trying to get comfortable in the hospital bed. “I had a plan! I was going to pack so carefully.”

“Alya will get what you need, don’t worry,” Adrien comforted her. “Just try and relax, love.”

Marinette gritted her teeth as another contraction hit, squeezing her partner’s hand.

“Your parents are on the way,” Adrien reassured her. “My father is getting on a flight as we speak.”

“He’s going to miss that important conference,” Marinette frowned.

“I don’t think he cares,” Adrien grinned. “I haven’t heard him this excited since silk bomber jackets made a come-back.”

Marinette giggled, and then immediately grimaced. “Ouch.”

“Can’t they give you more pain meds?” Adrien asked, rubbing his thumb over her hand.

“Not yet,” she gasped.

“Can I do anything?” Adrien asked, feeling helpless. Marinette nodded, leaning forward, and he smiled, rubbing the bottom of her back with his fingertips. He felt his lady relax under his touch, and he gave a sigh of relief. He had made it in time.

*

“Marinette!” her parents entered with a massive basket of pastries, and carefully enveloped their daughter in a hug. Tom had started to tear up already, muttering about his ‘baby girl’, while Sabine embraced Adrien. Marinette’s mother gave the best hugs.

Gabriel was next, arriving with a small case of overnight clothes, all carefully picked from the new maternity range that Marinette had inspired. (She had complained often to Gabriel that clothing for pregnant women was as fashionable as circus tents, and they had decided to do something about it.)

“How are you, dear?” Gabriel asked, taking Marinette’s hand.

“Better, now,” she smiled. “I’m glad everyone could make it in time.”

“I didn’t expect you to be so early,” Sabine admitted. “It was the opposite with you, mon chéri. I thought you were never going to be born!”

“Mama!” Marinette protested.

“It was the same with Adrien,” Gabriel smiled, his hand on his son’s shoulder. “My wife often complained that he was too comfortable.”

They all laughed good-naturedly, and Adrien blushed. The little small hospital room was full of love, and they pulled chairs around the bed, settling in for the long wait ahead.

Sorry for the false sin start ;)

Shanks’ UK losses piling up after recycling squeeze

A market squeeze on the cost of recycling binbag rubbish took the shine off robust results for Renewi, the waste management firm formerly known as Shanks.

The 130-year-old company, which merged with Dutch firm VGG last year, made a worse-than-expected loss of £4.2 million in the UK business, sending the shares down 7.7%, or 7.9p, to 95.1p.

The company, which makes 80% of its sales in Benelux, saw total revenues rise 15% to £779.2 million and underlying pre-tax profit up 7% to £25.7 million.

Renewi recycles rubbish collected from UK councils into fuels and products like glass and paper.

The costs of some recycled fuel contracts have doubled over the past year to 80 a tonne from 40 due to tougher markets.

A squeeze on UK council budgets has also hurt. “It was extremely difficult,” said chief executive Peter Dilnot.

Fic prompt: freckles!

During Spring Break Jack’s senior year, Jack spent the majority of the week flying across the country for pointless meetups for potential NHL contracts. Contract negotiation had been occurring through the whole year, but after one outdoor run with Georgia Martin in Jack’s fall semester, Jack had decided on Providence. Ransom put together an elaborate spreadsheet to rank all the different factors that weighed his decision – contract value, ice time, location, cap space, and way more – but regardless of what the complicated formulas said, Jack knew where he would land come graduation.  Despite being an expansion team, the contract was more money than Jack could ever possibly spend, he would be added to the starting line right away, and only one other team was physically closer to Samwell, and his growth potential with the Bruins had serious flaws.

Jack didn’t know why proximity to Samwell was so important to him; his parents lived in Montreal and within two or three years everyone he knew would have graduated and moved on anyway, so there was no need for longevity in New England. Despite that, he recognized his hesitancy over the last few days – the further away, the more flaws he found in the courting team. Anaheim practically begged him to join their organization, and they were leading their division. Dallas held the C over his head. When he declined to meet with Arizona, they doubled their proposed contract value. He knew if he went with a team in the Western Conference he’d be a superstar before thirty, but there was always something in the way. When he walked out of the meeting in Dallas and said to his manager, “They’re just so far away,” his manager knocked the cap off his head and Jack didn’t say another word until they got on the plane.

It was an exhausting break and Jack had midterms right away this week, so when he arrived back to the Haus to find it empty, he collapsed onto his bed and closed his eyes immediately. He drifted a bit; he was more mentally exhausted than physically, having not had to practice or play a game in over a week. Face-down on his bed, though, he felt much more relaxed than he had since break began.

So if Yana never reveals anything about Sebastian’s past, does that mean any headcanon for him is now canon? Because that means the following ideas all have equal chance of being canon:

  • He could just be a cloud with limbs
  • He has a cooking show in hell and each contract doubles as an episode for his show
  • He likes sticking around Ciel because it’s an excuse to not go home, where he’s a wanted demon for tax evasion
  • He was there when Noah’s ark (the biblical one) happened and he snuck 20 extra cats on board
  • He’s the only crow demon left in existence because the rest were all like “so tired of life, we’re gonna jump this thingy and end our wretched existence” but Sebastian saw a cat at the last moment and decided not to jump down the thingy because he found his true love
  • He’s the only demon left, period. That’s why William hates him so much.
  • He spent every day of his life possessing people and laughing about it
  • He fought spring-heeled Jack over a pair of high heels
  • He dated a vampire and a mummy at the same time

There’s been a lot of meta about Stiles being something other than human and if those theories are right I’m positive that his (real) name has a big part in it, one way or another. We know that characters’ names in TW have foreshadowed things about them before (ex.: Jennifer and Liam) and I believe that Jeff has a reason not to reveal Stiles’ first name yet. He doesn’t keep mysterious recurring themes for nothing, as he proved with the difference in werewolves’ eye color.

That being said, I also have a theory on what that reason is: Stiles is (kind of) Rumpelstiltskin.

Not that Rumpelstiltskin who likes to eat babies, just the same type of creature. I’ve seen a few AU!fics about it before but I think it can actually work in canon. This theory is heavily based on these brilliant posts by darachmoon about Stiles’ power of belief/desire/wishing. I recommend reading those first because I’m gonna mention them here.

Now I’m gonna put this under a readmore because it’s getting pretty long.

Really Cas, I'm Fine

Anonymous Request: I’ve asked so many blogs but they’re all inactive, and I have two requests (pick whichever you want) 1. something where Castiel has to rescue Claire, and he puts up a fight go get her, which ends up getting her really hurt and as she’s dying in Castiels arms, she keeps thinking he’s Jimmy? really fluffy/angst 2. one where Claire Novak is pregnant, and a worried and overprotective Castiel has to help her through all 9 months? THANK YOU SO MUCH AND CONGRATS ON 200+ FOLLOWERS :D

Author’s Notes: I hope this is ok. :) I haven’t seen any of season 10 yet. So I am not sure what Claire’s personality is like. Enjoy xx

‘Maybe I can fix it?’

I heard Castiel ask the Winchesters, as I threw up again for the fourth time this morning.

‘Cas, there is no fixing this you just need to let it play out,’ Sam told him gently.

I sat back, wiping my mouth. I wished he could fix it but there was not much anyone could do. I was pregnant, 4 months and 13 days to be exact. It wasn’t easy. Having Cas around, wasn’t any easier. You would think I was made of fine china, not carrying another human.

‘Claire.’

I heard him call. I turned around too quickly giving myself a head spin. I must have wavered slightly as Castiel dropped a plate of food onto the bunker floor with a loud smash and grabbed me.

‘Cas, back off I’m fine.’

‘You were going to collapse.’

He was panicked. I shook my head.

‘No, I was going to answer you.’

I groaned, looking at the mess on the floor. Apparently nesting instincts can kick in earlier than the last month. I bent down to clean the food up, sighing.

‘What are you doing?’ Castiel asked.

I looked up rolling my eyes. ‘Cleaning up your mess,’ I grumbled.

‘I will do it, and get you more food. You should eat,’ he said, his voice kind and yet bossy at the same time.

I bit my tongue. It wasn’t that I didn’t appreciated his attitude it was more, that I didn’t need his attitude or help.

‘I can clean up a mess Castiel. And make my own food,’ I snapped, more harshly that I should have.

‘No, you need to rest. And to eat, nutritious food, not just pizza,’ he informed me.

I rolled my eyes. I left him to finish cleaning up. I headed into the viewing room. The Winchesters smiled at me as I walked in.

‘Feeling ok?’ Sam asked.

‘I’d feel better if Castiel stopped treating me like a child,’ I groaned.

‘He cares, he feels he needs to look out for you.’

‘But I’m not a child,’ I muttered.

‘Well you’re not exactly classed as legal either,’ Dean argued.

I shot him a bitch face.

‘I can’t help that you are all old.’

Dean responded with his own bitch face.

‘I still have 5 more months of this,’ I groaned.

I got up and headed to the kitchen, grabbing something to eat.

‘That is not nutritious Claire., Castiel commented, as he walked in eyeing off my piece of chocolate cake.

I sighed and ate a grape. Only 5 more months.


Two months later I was bringing some shopping into the bunker, I had decided it was time to get the baby some furniture and clothes. Castiel was talking to the Winchesters as I walked in. He rushed over and grabbed the bags from my arms.

‘They weren’t even heavy,’ I complained.

‘But carrying them could hurt you,’ He explained.

I rolled my eyes.

‘You should be resting,’ he suggested.

‘No, I should be preparing for this baby,’ I retorted.

Castiel took the bags to the baby’s room and finished emptying the car.

‘Does he every leave?’ I asked the boys.

Dean shook his head.

‘You shouldn’t go anywhere without telling me. What if something happened?’ he chastised, in a soft caring manner.

‘Then you get to go back to fighting evil and stop worrying about me.’ I threw him a sarcastic smile.

‘I am just worried about you. I need to know that you are safe,’ he explained quietly.

‘I get it. I know, I just. It’s too much sometimes. You aren’t my Dad, Cas,’ I told him.

He looked at me for a few minutes.

‘I made you lunch,’ he said.

‘Ah, thanks. I think.’

I was unsure, thinking back to the last time he prepared me food. I spent the next hour vomiting.

‘Then you should probably rest,’ he said.

‘I was going to start putting the baby’s furniture together,’ I informed him.

‘I can do that. You should rest.’

I sighed. Two more months.


I was finally approaching my due date, 3 more days, and Castiel was worse now than he had been the whole pregnancy. He followed me EVERYWHERE. Every Braxton Hick contraction I had, he got ready for the hospital. My first one was the funniest, I did not think it was possible to see an angel pale or panic about what to do. But he succeeded. Now the car was packed, and I was not allowed to be left alone. I laid on the couch in the viewing room and watched the baby move in my stomach.

After a while I decided I needed to go to the bathroom. Castiel had finally left to go prepare lunch, another healthy (gag) salad. I rolled off the couch and onto the floor, on all fours. It was easier to get up that way.

‘Oomph.’ I grunted as I landed on all fours.

I placed my hand on the couch to pull myself up. Unfortunately, Castiel choose that moment to walk in.

‘Claire? Are you ok? Is the baby ok?’

‘I’m fine. Just getting up.’

I stopped then as I felt a weird movement in my stomach. I thought maybe I had pulled something.

‘Aahhh’ I said unsure.

I felt Castiel appear by my side. He helped me up.

‘You do not look ok,’ he commented, frowning at me.

I went to stand up straighter and I felt a pain starting in my back and radiate around my sides to the front of my stomach. I placed my hand on my belly. It had gone rock hard. The pain lasted about 5 seconds and disappeared. I stood up straight and smiled.

‘I’m fine. I think the baby is shifting again,’ I explained.

I waddled off the toilet, Cas in tow.

‘I need to pee, in peace, alone,’ I told him.

He waiting outside for me. Several minutes later I had another pain. I groaned, I was not in the mood for more Braxton hicks.

‘Are you ok?’ he asked again.

I nodded. ‘I think I ate some bad food,’ I muttered.

Over the next two hours I continued to run to the bathroom, well waddle fast. On the way back from yet another trip, I got hit with another really sharp pain. I screamed, Castiel was by my side in a second. Wrapping his arms around my waist holding me up, I stood up my waters broke.

‘I really do not think you are ok,’ Castiel argued again.

‘My waters broke,’ I panted, before doubling over as another contraction hit.

Castiel took charge then, getting me to the car. He drove me to the hospital, he tried easing the pain of the contractions but his powers are useless against this sort of thing.


Once we arrived, he was asked to stay in the waiting room. It took another four hours before I would see him again. He walked into the room, as I was holding my new son.

‘Uncle Cas, meet James Novak,’ I smiled.

Cas looked at me surprised.

‘Uncle Cas?’ he asked.

‘Well it’s that or Grandpa, but you look too young for that. Despite being old,’ I explained.

‘You did well during the labour,’ he commented.

I looked at him confused.

‘I was watching.’

‘That’s not gross or creepy at all,’ I replied sarcastically.

‘I need to keep you safe Claire,’ he said, his eyes on James the whole time.

I smiled down at my son, and watched as he opened his eyes and looked at our angel. I could have sworn I seen his little face smile.
