Barry Allen thought himself the expert of all things love. Especially when it came to how intoxicating it could be.
I mean, he’d loved Iris West since before he’d even discovered what love was. Love was a name he’d found to put to his insurmountable feelings. When you allow a love like that to build up within you; it becomes the oxygen you breathe. Every inhale; every exhale holds a mantra within it. For Barry, it had always been, Iris,Iris,Iris.
Barry quickly found making love came with it’s own set of rules.
The first time they came together, he thought he’d lost his powers. His breath was torn from his lungs so savagely, so abruptly, it felt inhuman-even for him. The Speedforce itself would quake at the very speed his heart was racing. All the love that had been occupying his body threatened to overflow. It took all of his self-control to not let it flood into her veins.
After all, Barry Allen finally had Iris West. He had forever to let the droplets of his affection drip into the crevices of her heart. And not even a speedster would rush a love like that.
Notes: I’d really love it if y’all told me what you thought. I’m thinking of writing one from Iris’ point of view.
Edit: I made one from Iris’ POV! Read Addicted here :)
Gemini season brings with it the birthdays of some of the most important figures in music history. Bob Dylan, 2Pac, Kanye West, Miles Davis, Prince, and the ATL Legend and arguably the best rapper of all time, Andre 3000. To celebrate the reclusive legends 42nd birthday, a deep dive into 3 Stacks features was done to do a proper ranking of his work that has kept his name more prevalent then ever before. With a solo album on top of my short list of “Things Never Happening But A Boy Can Dream”, and an Outkast album right next to it, the verses Andre has blessed us with over the past 20+ years will be on repeat instead.
Disclaimer: Only Counting songs were Andre has a full verse, not just a hook, skit or background vocals, but shout out to “Junie”, “By Design”, “Bubble Pop Electric” and “30 Hours”.
With That I Present, Andre 3000′s 25 Best Guest Verses
Note: This is a piece that accompanies Breathless, which is Barry’s POV on how he feels about Iris. This one is Iris’ POV on Barry, though it can be read on it’s own.
I have a westallen and wallylinda one-shot in the making. Who knows, maybe i’ll get into writing again :)
Warnings: Implied sex and analogies to drugs
Iris West never envisioned herself becoming an addict.
Never knew that when their forms pressed together that very first time, it would awaken a ravenous hunger that could never be satiated. Never knew that she could grow so attached to someone that she begged his ghost to haunt her when he was gone. Never knew that there would be a part of her so viciously protective of him that even her demons were terrified of it.
And then she’d fallen in love with Barry Allen.
Of course, Iris had known many types of love. The love of a father, of a brother, of a friend. The love of a mother; however short-lived and painful it was. Even the love of a gentle man; whose loss she mourned daily.
But then she came to know the love of a soulmate.
Suddenly, intimately, she knew why love was often compared to drugs. Barry was her dealer, handing her bits of his affection day by day. She’d inject it in her veins, feeling the euphoria engulf her in a tidal wave of serenity. She craved it now; it settled within her bones and became a part of her. And when she’d venture out for more, he was all too willing to hand it over. It was downright criminal, the way he fed her addiction.
But if loving him was wrong, she’d just have to spend their forever basking in why it felt right.
What placements and houses do you think are good at singing?? And are only taurus and libras only good at singing? I have mercury in virgo 10th house..?
A strong 2nd House (Taurus rules the throat), strong Taurus influence (mostly Sun/Moon/Rising/Venus/Mercury/Jupiter), Taurus Midheaven, Venus conjunct Midheaven, Libra influence, harmonious Mercury-Venus aspects, Mercury-Neptune aspects, personal planets in Pisces, personal planets in Libra, strong 5th House, etc etc etc. There are more but that’s all I can think of for now… It also depends on the style of singing that you prefer.
I have noticed that Aries singers (Aretha Franklin, Mariah Carey, Marvin Gaye, Elton John) typically pour their soul into the songs that they sing, and can be loud, it’s powerful but in a nice way.
Taurus singers (Adele, James Brown, Frankie Valli, Stevie Wonder) are similar to Aries singers in that they sound powerful, but they hold their notes longer (is the term called ‘notes’? I don’t know) and there’s a certain unique funk to the way they sing.
Gemini singers (Bob Dylan, Kanye West, Paul McCartney, Lana Del Rey) are more concerned with transforming their songs into stories, they want to paint little stories inside the listener’s mind and provide imagery; not the most aesthetically pleasing voices, but they are legendary because they are story-tellers.
Cancer singers (Sky Ferreira, Ariel Pink, Debbie Harry, Jack White) sound so rock ‘n’ roll, very cool, there’s energy in their voices and their style is distinct. They sound confident and can often have a dreamy vibe to their voices as well.
Leo singers (Whitney Houston, Robert Plant, Mick Jagger, Jennifer Lopez) are one word: DRAMATIC. Leo placements bring dramatic undertones and it’s so memorable. People know Robert Plant for his eccentric moaning, Whitney Houston for her enormous talent, and Mick Jagger for the excitement that his music brings.
Virgo singers (Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse, Freddie Mercury, Beyonce) can often revolutionize their genres, they are passionate singers and have much respect for what they do. They sing with a purpose, they need to get messages across.
Libra singers (Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Gwen Stefani, Chuck Berry) are more subtle but they have fun with what they do. They have calm voices and don’t raise their voices often, they just like to vibe with it.
Scorpio singers (Lorde, Grace Slick, Bjork, Anthony Kiedis) are very much on the unconventional side, they introduce their own way of singing and it’s intriguing. It’s a voice you never heard before.
Sagittarius singers (Frank Sinatra, Jimi Hendrix, Nicki Minaj, Rita Ora) are a bit on the mellow side, it’s rich but it’s composed, they sing with control and steadiness.
Capricorn singers (David Bowie, John Legend, Joan Baez, Elvis Presley) have great voices, they are pretty different and bring new styles to the table, they make sure they are heard.
Aquarius singers (Bob Marley, Justin Timberlake, Shakira, Ed Sheeran) have chill voices, but they still manage to stand out because their voices are filled with an almost soothing quality, a quality that brings you in and you don’t want to stop listening for some reason.
Pisces singers (Rihanna, Lou Reed, Johnny Cash, Kurt Cobain) can almost sound monotonous, it sounds like they’re talking regularly but there’s still something badass about it. They sound a bit edgy, almost “too cool for school” and that’s a good thing to have when you’re a singer.
