Fav sterek fics?

I have 402 bookmarks on AO3, how do I choose favorites?! I guess I can try ; ; here’s my pathetic attempt at a sterek rec list (fics added as I find them in my bookmarks, not by favorites):


The Boy and the Beast by Dira Sudis (dsudis) [116k, M]

In which events in Beacon Hills go rather differently from the start, and a Beauty and the Beast (ish) story ensues. (Scott is not a teacup and no one sings about their feelings.)

Safety in Silence by Survivah [66k, M]

It’s perfectly understandable. Even Derek wouldn’t want to be Derek’s soulmate.

Easy Trouble by Survivah [55k, M]

Derek+Stiles+fairies = love spell

“Make love to me,” Derek demands.

What.

Where The Inevitable Isn’t by Survivah [41, M]

Stiles has a magical thingamajig that’s supposed to get him out of danger. Trouble is, it took him really, really far out of danger. Like, to the point where he isn’t in the same universe anymore.

“A part of Stiles had been thinking that he’d come home, and just go, ‘hey, Derek, are we mates and you just haven’t said anything about it?’ and Derek would reply, ‘now you mention it, we are indeed! Now come to my bedchamber, where we will have super hot sex and then cuddle after!’”

A Simple Life by Survivah [13k, T]

Derek plans to spend the rest of his life holed up in the woods after Laura dies. Then he meets a stubborn young fox, and the stubborn young fox meets an urn of Deaton’s magic powder, and his plans change.

So this is me embracing my crippling fear of form fitting dresses. It took an hour to work up the courage to even take it off the rack and once I was in the changing room I made sure I danced around until I felt absolutely beautiful 🍃

”SELF-LOVE. I openly embrace a feeling of self-love (the PG kind). I love myself because I understand myself. I love myself as the most committed partner I will ever have. I show myself love any way that I can, and when I screw up I remember to be sweet and gentle with myself. If not, I’m gonna make myself sleep on the couch. Got that, Self?”

skam spin-off

to keep with the theme of positiveness for this blog, i wanted to talk a lil about the US version of skam ! admittedly hopes for the show aren’t the greatest, but rn there’s heaps of love in the tags for some really promising outcomes for the series and where it could be set. and it got me thinking, what if in some alternate universe we could have an english spin-off of skam that wasn’t set in america ?? i, as an australian, think skam would translate perfectly into a quaint little show set in australia, and below i wanna list why !

Most of what I’m going to say below is applicable to southern Australia (Melbourne and surrounds) so if you’re a fellow aussie and this doesn’t make sense, this is the geographical context !

also this is kinda long (….2440 words….) bc i got super passionate about this so if you wanna chuck me a like (even if you didn’t read it) it will make me feel better for wasting the past hour of my life AHAHAH

I feel like no matter what I'll always think my boyfriend (or any guy for that matter) truly loves me. I just feel like I am too much to handle between my mood swings and how emotional I am etc. Idk I always need constant reassurance and if I don't get it I start to analyze everything just to come to the conclusion that he does not love me cause I am unlovable. I know it's fucked up but I can't seem to stop.

I relate to you a lot. I find myself having those thoughts as well. My biggest tip for you is to embrace that self love. That love that no boy, girl, or anyone can give to you. Learn to love yourself. Learn to love the things that make up the person that you are. We all have things about ourselves that we don’t like but that doesn’t make us unlovable, it makes us human. You’re gonna meet someone lovely one day who treats you with respect and gives you the love you deserve, but in the mean time. Focus on you. Give love to yourself and just try not to be so hard on you. I know, I know, it’s easier said than done. But the best thing you can do is try. You’re awesome! Be kind to yourself. I’m always here! x

anonymous asked:

Are there any darker aspects of Aphrodite? (I searched but i couldn't find any...)

Of course she does :) Love and beauty have vicious aspects to them, and you can’t take those from Aphrodite either. Love drives people to extremes, it pushes them to their limits, it can make you cruel, it can push you to hurt others. Love is often described by colorful words like flame, and burning, and those words are so true. Fire is destructive if left unchecked, and the same is true for love.

Think also about the phrase, “Beauty is pain.” While that’s certainly not true 100% of the time, there are instances where people will endure pain get achieve something they find beautiful. Also, beauty is a weapon in our society. It can be used to manipulate people, to get things, to deliberately hurt others.

Aphrodite is tender kisses, loving embraces, self care and finding beauty in yourself. But She’s also hate-fucking. She’s taking up arms to protect your loved ones. She’s undoing that top button to get out of a ticket. She’s enduring hours in a tattoo chair to paint your skin with images of beauty. She’s broken hearts when lovers say goodbye, and pierced ears. She’s kisses on bare necks, and the pain and bruises left behind the next day. 

Love isn’t easy and gentle, and neither is the Goddess of love.

Check out Her two epithets of Areia (Warlike) and Hôplismenê (Armed) for some specific reference points if you’re wanting to start with historical instances.

The problem with this generation is that we always expect love from others when we don’t love ourselves. We put ourselves down and therefore we lower ourself esteem. We look in the mirror and pick out our flaws and find every reasons that we are not pretty in the eyes of society. Everyone is beautiful, not matter what is the standard of beauty is in society. No matter what race, religion, culture or upbringing; we must love ourselves to initially be happiness with who we are.
