Word Count: 522

Pairing: Tony Stark x Reader

Warnings: FLUFF 

Requested: No

Author’s Note: Sorry for not posting! I had Prom, my mom’s birthday, and mother’s day two weeks ago. And this last week (end of the school year yayyy or well two more weeks) I had a bunch of test/projects to do. I didn’t have time to look at requests so I at least wanted to post something! Enjoy the dabble! Also I am working on Masked (it’s coming I promise!)

Waves softly crashed onto the beach as Tony ran his fingers through your hair. The two of you were swinging on a hammock watching the sun set into the horizon. He was grateful that you managed to convince him to take a vacation because he needed it more than ever.

“I told you we needed this,” You hummed in content snuggling into his chest.

“You were right,” Tony responded.

He watched you raised your head up slightly with a smirk on your face. “I’m sorry did you just say I was right? I never thought I see the day.”

“Aren’t you so funny.”

You giggled into his chest happily before letting out a small yawn. Raising an eyebrow, Tony returned to playing with your hair as you sighed with delight. He knew too well how much you loved people playing with your hair. It was almost a weakness in some cases - unless you were too stubborn to give in.

“You know,” Tony began before hearing soft snores coming from you. “Never mind then,” He chuckled quietly not wanting to wake you up.  

Putting one foot in the sand, he began rocking the hammock in hopes that you would stay asleep. You needed the sleep anyway, you two just got off of a two-week long mission and the two of you definitely didn’t get the rest you needed. It was only second to last day of the mission when you suggested that both of you should take some time off and he couldn’t agree more.

Tony doesn’t remember the last time he actually had a proper vacation but he definitely knew it’s been a long time. The two of you just got here and already he felt calm. For the first time in forever, he felt an inner peace he lost all those years ago and that was thanks to you. You helped him build himself back up again and make peace with his demons. He barely had panic attacks anymore and he honestly felt like a much happier person.

Keeping the hammock rocking, he kissed the top of your head as you mindlessly buried your head in the crook of his neck. Smirking as you mumbled to yourself before snoring once more, he kissed your forehead. Waiting a few moments until he knew you were fully asleep, Tony grabbed a small box out of his pocket. Flipping the box open, he stared at the ring he had gotten months ago in secret.

At first, he didn’t know when he was going to pop the question, a part of him worried you would say no. After a long mission of close calls, he knew, that he needed to ask you when he had the chance. But he wasn’t going to ask you now, you looked so peaceful in your slumber that he didn’t want to disturb you. So instead, Tony put the ring back in his pocket and listened to your steady breathing. Now all he could do was hope that when you both returned from your little getaway, that you would have that ring sitting on your finger.

And you eventually did.

Hetalia- Sapphire (DenEst)

Happy very, very, very belated birthday @melveres! I’m so sorry I took 10000 years to finish something for you but I was determined to make sure you got it in the end! You are a cool peep and I admire your work so much. We are so lucky to have you and I wanted to show my appreciation!

I admit, I had struggled a bit and went through 3 fics (which is why everything took so long) before deciding to stick with drabbles. This is only one of them, more are coming! <3

This one features DenEst in a merman AU (close to 800 words). Christian is Den, Eduard is Est.

“I wanna show ya something.”

Eduard had virtually no time to react when Christian took him by the hand and together they swam through the vast ocean. Up ahead was a famous spot amongst their kind, a graveyard for sunken ships where many treasures could be found. They had come here many times together, sometimes with friends, and had found interesting items that they had never seen before. It was strictly forbidden to go to the surface and communicate with humans so these ships were like a window to an unknown world.

From the Other Side of the Signing Table

“I don’t know what to say to you,” the girl said. “Um, thanks, I guess.”

“Thanks is good,” I replied.

Silence stretched, punctuated only by the scuffle of a Sharpie on a page.

We were in the same boat, the girl and I — both at a book festival, both at the end of a long day full of people, both in a signing line that had been going on for an hour already. There was only one big difference between us: she was on one side of the table, and I was on the other. Sometimes that difference seems to matter more than others.

Before I was published, I read a lot of accounts of what it was like to have your work out there, but I never read anything about what it was like to have yourself out there. I suppose I never really thought about it, to tell you the truth. I thought you wrote a book and hopefully people liked it and if I thought about book tours at all, I figured they involved standing on a stage for a bit before disappearing into a rental car. The truth, however, is that now — ten years and fifteen novels in to my career — most of my hours in front of people are spent in a signing line. Forty minutes on a stage or behind a table for a panel, and then two or three hours meeting a few hundred strangers. I had no idea what it would be like.

This is what it’s like.

Something I’ve run into quite a lot while doing the whole “project manager” thing is artist who are openly hostile to the idea of engaging with the “business side” of what they do. There’s this broad perception that that business side of art means advertising and merchandising and selling out, and while it certainly can mean that, a lot of it is much more basic - and it’s stuff that’s absolutely not optional if art is anything beyond a personal fun-time hobby for you.

Stuff like:

1. Having reality-based metrics for time and resource commitment - or, in plain English, making sure that what you’re charging for your commissions is actually based on how hard they are to do.

It’s downright shocking how rare this is. I’ve encountered digital artists who routinely charge less for a spec that takes them much longer to do based on purely abstract notions of how “complex” the piece is, without reference to their actual, demonstrable time commitment. Heck, I’ve run into a traditional artist who ended up making nickles per hour for a major commission because she hadn’t correctly tallied up the cost of the art supplies expended in producing it!

The only way to arrive at appropriate metrics is based on evidence; your off-the-cuff estimates will always, always be wrong. Literally time yourself as you work on pieces of various types, and write down how long it took you. And never assume that it will be quicker next time; that’s called the planning fallacy, and it will eat you alive if you let it.

2. Having a lifecycle management plan for the tools you need to work.

Tablets don’t last forever. Neither do computers. Even software can become so outdated and incompatible as to lose utility over time. Basically, your tools have a finite lifespan, and you need to have a plan for replacing them as needed.

I understand that many independent artists don’t have the means to save up for new and replacement tools, and rely on second-hand hardware, gifts from friends and family, or donation drives on their blogs to fill the gap. That’s fine - artists relying on patronage has a long and distinguished history. The important thing is that these avenues be part of a plan, not a desperate scramble after some 100% foreseeable circumstance has rendered you unable to work.

Data on average time-to-failure for your hardware is readily accessible online; if, for example, that particular brand of tablet tends to last about three years, then you need to start organising your donation drive or dropping hints for your birthday at two years and six months, even if your equipment seems perfectly fine. The same goes for software; the vendor’s support window (i.e., the time after which they’ll stop publishing bugfixes and security updates) for your version of the software is a known factor.

3.  Having a formal requirements-gathering and signoff procedure.

I know that sounds like a lot of boring paperwork, and to be honest it kind of is, but it’s also critical for anything you’re not drawing for yourself. Language is an imprecise medium; based on a few minutes of casual conversation, you can easily end up in situations where you and your commissioner have totally different understandings of what the job entails, yet you’re both convinced you’ve understood the other perfectly.

You should have a detailed written description of what’s involved, and your client’s explicit, documented confirmation that they’ve read, understood and agreed to it, before you draw a single stroke. This includes timelines and deliverables as well as content; I’ve run into numerous cases of clients who’ve alleged non-delivery of services based on their understanding that they’d be receiving a traditional, ink-and-paper piece where the artist understood the commission to involve only digital work, and more than one case where a client started hollering about breach of contract less than 24 hours after signing off because they honestly thought it would be done already.

You have to nip that in the bud; this level of documentation is a bare minimum for anyone who takes money to do art, not a nice-to-have.

may is….may is the month of family.

since childhood, may felt more like the middle of the year than June or July. I thought it was the same month as inflection point of the year. It has a lot of public holidays too.. Labour Day.. Buddha’s Birthday.. Parents’ Day.. Teacher’s Day.. but of course the main (holiday) is Children’s day !

therefore, it becomes may bam! my heart would flutter pointlessly. It’s the month with many days off from school right? I think everyone would do it if you have school days…maybe. Isn’t it that the weight of may alone approaching distinctly, perhaps our childlike innocence is still alive?

the last end of year stage occasion.. everyone, the members and company too said 2017 all together. we’ve already approached half way through the year, time really flies. yesterday I thought about the word “future”.미未(not) 올래來(coming). A word that we live by bound the most together with words of happiness and love. but suddenly there is not future. I thought that.

because its already may of 2017 that we waited eagerly for, maybe the that future is just a myth. because the most important thing is right now. I thought that saying to do it in the future- later on- that future would never come. something about it is superficial but now is the future soon. I’ve always hoped for something for the future and for something to change, but then I couldn’t manage to smell of the trees of the present. it seems that there is a little water given too to speak of. that the present is the future soon

you may be curious. In the meantime I’m getting a some things ready that are fun again. because we have a lot of things to prepare, the pace is a bit slower than before. because we want to make them more carefully and elaborately. I miss when I didn’t know about the world and had fears of the old past. but there are pros and cons. I think I want to show you since I did it so finely. still..I’m daring to do my best. dare I.

BTS is barely starting. Up until now, we have tried things we haven’t before and we want to try more. It’s barely may more or less.. It doesn’t feel like may has come somehow. The may now and the may 10 years ago have many differences but, when I see my little cousin getting excited to go to lotte world, I’m still thrilled and envious. we will be like this. the weather is warm despite it getting hotter as the summer quickens.

how is everyone’s may? In your hearts, me. us. I thought (about that) for a moment, what season, what month will i stay in. But it’s sad that I can’t hear all the stories. I will try to do my best though. Like music if I can do it. warm and hotly.

it’s prom season again and marinette’s ultimate plan is to get chat to come as her date and make adrien jealous…much to her disappointment, adrien isn’t present at the prom (gee i wonder why), but she ends up having a blast with chat anyway.

  • Lance: Keith told me you are a leap child. Does that mean-
  • Shiro: That time is a human concept that doesn't affect how our body behaves? That Earth doesn't care where the sun rises first and last? That the sun was rising and setting long before humans decided to start counting how many times it happened before the ground was too cold for farming? And that it will keep rising and setting even when all the clocks stop and all the calendars are burned, until the sun explodes in a super nova, eating our solar system with it? That, despite being born in a day that happens only ever 4 years in our fragile system, my body and mind still grew normally, completely unaware that my birthday technically didn't happen, and so I'm still older then you? That in the end it doesn't matter, for we all will have the same end, embraced in the cold arms of death?

A/N: I had a lot of fun writing this! It’s the longest I’ve written on this blog and I’d really appreciate the feedback here  – I’m most likely doing a Part 2 depending on how you all like it. Enjoy :)

Harry loved family reunions.

Amongst the bickering cousins and lurid pitter-patter of children, he often found himself feeling at peace as his folks filled him in on all the stories he’s missed out on. He’d laugh about his jittery uncle who nearly burnt his eyebrows off from an old barbecue, nodding approvingly as his aunt gushes about her eight year old who’s just won the flashy new title of spelling bee champion. He likes the way they treat him too. With adoration in their eyes, resurrecting from the years they’ve watched him as a young boy (instead of the usual gaze of stardom he’s used to). He almost, if not, especially enjoys the way they admire his success, not as an ego-booster, but as a way of praising Anne for his upbringing, despite the major gossip that briefly tainted his mother’s name around her first divorce.

But even in a house packed with his most favourite people, he would always feel relatively exhausted from the length of the reunion, a full four days he’d reckoned. It was unfair really, he loved his crazy family, but he always felt like he had to put on his best face, never getting his usual dose of solitude to rejuvenate.

So when Harry first invited you to join him, he hadn’t quite expected you to be so patient with his family.

“Yes, he is very handsome,” you’d chuckle, “but we’re only friends.”

“You’re sweet, love, but I think this little girl wins the beauty contest, hmm?”

“Right, he is very good with kids.”

“M’only in uni, ma’am, so I’ve got a few good years before settling down.”

You know that Christophe was probably like “everyone have their separate Valentines’ Day celebrations and then we all get together later”

But then Viktor was like LOL i can always have sex with yuuri whenever and I always wine and dine him duh ur birthday only comes once a year you scrub

So then he plans a surprise party with Chris’ guy friend/boyfriend/partner/person and then everyone shows up and Chris is like OMG this is so nice i guess i can have sex and stuff whenever with my person and I also wine and dine and am wined and dined u right Viktor

and viktor is like duh of course i’m right

and then everyone is partying and Yuuri ends up drinking the fancy Valentines’ Day champagne and Chris is like yes, this is how I want to spend my birthday, on a stripper pole, and so then Viktor is like shit I didn’t think this through

and then the Grand Prix banquet pt two happens and Yurio is in a corner leaning into Otabek like these aren’t my real dads and otabek is like sure sure lemme keep spinning these tunes

and chris is having the time of his life on the pole and yuuri was too but then he started giving viktor a lapdance and phichit is livestreaming the whole thing on instagram and someone records it and it goes viral 

Long story short, Chris gets a reality show about six drunk ice skaters for his birthday thanks to Phichit recording Yuuri and Viktor getting it on

✨3.24 Happy Birthday Park Bom ✨

LazyTown things I think about constantly

  • The two times Robbie genuinely considered becoming a superhero
  • Sportacus telling the kids to eat healthy and hardly ever eating any healthy amounts of food
  • Spob
  • Robbie calling Sportacus “Sporto” or “Sportabuddy”
  • The kitten
  • How half the live animals that were in the episodes belonged to Stefan
  • They James Earl Jones’d Spob and had a girl voice him while a boy played him
  • Sportacus knits
  • The mustache doesn’t match the hair it’s fucking fake Sportacus wears a fake mustache
  • Robbie, Fae or not, is actually magic and hardly ever uses that to his advantage
  • Sportacus never actually uses toothpaste
  • These people live in some sort of universe where you only get one color scheme to live with for the rest of your life
  • He lifts a fucking pyramid for fuck’s sake just no
  • Sportacus has no idea what a club sandwich is at all
  • Also he has no fucking kitchen utensils and dirties up his sports equipment to make food
  • There is no bathroom on that airship
  • Robbie eats Styrofoam peanuts
  • Both of these grown ass men need to be given proper cooking lessons
  • Everything about Sportacus is blue. So his hair is blue
  • Robbie would manage to get rid of Sportacus if he didn’t get his ideas from overhearing the children’s conversations
  • Sportacus and (more than likely) everyone in LazyTown are all merchandised and all have their own dolls in the LazyTown universe and we are never given explanations as to why
  • Sportacus once defied the laws of physics to play baseball with an apple in outer space without a spacesuit
  • Robbie was so lonely when everyone was gone that he drew their faces on balls and was almost in tears when they came back because he missed them so much
  • Robbie thinks Ziggy is a cute little kid
  • Robbie actually got Ziggy a birthday gift. Twice
  • Stingy ran over Sportacus because Sportacus didn’t think to just warn him about the holes he was gonna drive into
  • The Fortune Teller episode was probably the gayest episode and it was co-written by Magnus Scheving so he knew what the fuck he was doing
  • This show got revived three years after the first two seasons ended how is this show even real

softhuess  asked:

Do you know any fics with draco speaking french?

FRENCH DRACO IS WHAT I LIVE FORR! There’s not nearly enough fics out there where he’s French, or speaks French :(

  • All Is Dust That Is Not His Heart - by Lomonaaeren (3k)
    Draco is a Beauxbaton student. Fleur is therefore the rightful Champion of the Triwizard Tournament. Who is this upstart Harry Potter, who insists on intruding where he doesn’t belong?
    (I adored this fic so much! Like the summary says, Draco is from Beauxbatons and idolises Fleur (she’s kind of like a mentor to him). I just didn’t want it to end!)

  • ‘Arry - by DorthyAnn (2k)
    “Je pense toujours à toi.”
    Malfoy had always spoke french, over the years the occasional outbursts of french lessened and his accent became less pronounced, except when he lost his temper and would swear at length and quite colorfully in the elegant language.
    (Harry & Draco confess their love through Parseltongue and French)

  • Against All Odds - by momatu (54k)
    Beauxbatons is hosting the first ever Quidditch Summer School for children from all over Europe, and Harry has promised to enroll Teddy as his birthday present. Meanwhile, Draco is stuck in his office, putting together the first ever Quidditch Summer School for children from all over Europe during, when he should be enjoying summer holidays.
    (Draco, a Flying Instructor at Beauxbatons, is hosting an international Quidditch training camp. Harry brings Teddy and ends up staying to coach. The scenes where Draco tour Harry around France and takes him to all of his favourite place are all so sweet! Draco speaks a lot of French in this story, and there’s no translations provided, but the author promises that the sentences where Draco speaks French don’t affect the overall meaning of the story)

  • Say Anything - by megyal (8k)
    Draco has a crush on Harry and tells him in French.
    (Draco tells Harry everything he loves about him, but in French)

  • Crossing Lines - by Ren (48k)
    While investigating a ring of smugglers, the Aurors receive a tip saying that the European Express is being used to move contraband across state lines. To solve the case, Harry has to unmask the smugglers and find the hidden contraband before the luxury train reaches Bulgaria. Draco Malfoy is also on board… but that’s just coincidence, isn’t it?
    (Auror!Harry. A marvellous story where Harry and Draco have to share a cabin on a train. This really was a highly captivating fic and was such a joy to read!)

  • 2AM Confession - by fairydrarry (1k)
    An inebriated Draco shows up at Harry’s doorstep at 2 in the morning murmuring French and ends up confessing his feelings to Harry.
    (A really cute and short one-shot where Draco confesses his love to Harry. In French. While Drunk)

  • Parce-que - by curiouslyfic (2k)
    Harry blames the salad. Everyone else blames Harry. Featuring bad salad, oblivious!Harry, and appalling French.
    (Don’t forget to read the sequel parce-que potter! It’s just as great as the first!)
