Laundry day

Taken from this prompt list

Prompt: Give me a Tony who gets a laundry machine just so the baby can sit on it and laugh when the thing vibrates as it works.

“Alright, the last connection”

Tony announced after a few minutes of being, quite literally, inside the machine, or at least half of his torso was. He sighed as he finally got out and stretched, the bones of his back cracking slightly after being crammed in the same position for a bit too long. Tony looked up at the machine and smiled softly, quite satisfied with the results.

“Now all we have to do is load it” Tony said as he faced at the little person sitting nearby on the floor “Wanna help me?” he asked, smiling when the little boy nodded, giving him a gummy smile that showed only two tiny bunny teeth, the little one watched him with those big brown eyes that had anyone who looked at him wrapped around his little finger.

The little one pushed himself up, still a little wobbly on his feet but Tony didn’t reach to help him, knowing he could do it himself but Tony remained alert in case he fell or tripped with his own feet, all chubby and adorable, and damn, he did make cute babies.

“Here, you can start with this”

Tony pushed a little pile of rumpled white clothes to the kid and watched with a smile how delighted he seemed to be given a little task; chubby hands were quick to start picking each item and shove it inside the machine, sometimes his aim was a bit off but Tony reached to help him a bit until the pile was gone, the child clapped his little hands when Tony praised him for his help and Tony smiled at his little giggles.

“And for the great ending” Tony picked a bright red sock, showing it to the baby and smiling when little hands tried to reach for it “Oh, no, this for uncle Clint’s surprise” Tony crooned as he tossed the sock inside the laundry machine and closed the door “Now he’ll learn how not to break stuff around the house and not to eat your teddy cookies” Tony said as he kissed the baby’s cheek and picked him up easily “Would you do us the honors?” Tony asked to the little one and pointed to the button on top of the machine as he helped him closer, knowing how much the kid likes to press buttons, or anything really, as long as he could reach them, more so if Tony asked him to.

Soon enough the machine started to fill up with water along the soap Tony had previously put inside. The brunet crouched with the kid in tow to let him see inside the machine and how it was slowly filling up with water, smiling as the kid seemed hypnotized by the movement and soon enough the machine started to work, moving slightly, vibrating.

“Oh, this is gonna be so much fun” Tony said, getting back up and setting the kid on top of the laundry machine.

At first the kid seemed taken by surprise but soon enough he started to smile and shriek and laugh with that contagious sound that had anyone who heard him laughing or at least smiling with him. Tony loved to see him happy so he got around to know all the little things that made the kid laugh and, upon discovering them, he’d store the new ones in his memory for later. They were usually silly little things easily achievable, but not for that Tony ignored them; silly cartoons on the tv that Tony would program for the kid to watch whenever he wanted, his dad making silly voices while reading him a bedtime story, Natasha slapping Clint’s arm, anyone kissing his little hands or feet, especially when Tony pretended to munch on his little toes.

Clint wasn’t exactly happy that he had to wear pink underwear for the next month, but he accepted his fate for eating Petey’s cookies.

Happy Birthday Armin!

Since it has been the year of the headcanons, please enjoy some headcanons for our sweet baby coconut! (Note: I’m going to try to make them applicable to any universe, but some will end up strictly canon or modern au.)

  • Armin is the friend who will remember every embarrassing thing you’ve ever said or done, but will only use it to joke around with you, not hurt you. (However, he could hurt you if he wanted, and that will hang over your head even if you know he’d never do that.)
  • He always wins at game night. No matter the game.
  • He’s laugh is contagious. 
  • He loves to plan really elaborate pranks, and execute them. He also gets really anxious/angry when they don’t go as planned.
  • Armin can be super sarcastic when he wants to. He’s most sarcastic at night and in the morning, or when he’s been studying/working for too long. 
  • He is very self-conscious about the fact that he isn’t very athletic, and is often seen as physically weak. He would often put in extra hours during cadet training to try to build more endurance or muscle. He’d go to Reiner for strength training, Bertholdt for stamina, Marco for physical combat, Jean for 3DMG mastery. Armin hates being seen as weak or a burden, and worked really hard to try to be more athletic. And while he was no Hercules by the end of training, he had made significant progress he could be proud of.

mo0nlit  asked:

I bought a few crystals a while ago, but I was wondering, how can you tell that they're balancing your chakras?

As the healing energies are working in various chakra centers, you are likely to experience a lot of old repressed memories, sensations and feelings… all part of your “Process”. These experiences are signposts indicating areas the work is affecting, and the stages of your unfoldment. Do not get attached to any one feeling or sensation - as they are all part of the phenomenal reality, they will all shift and change from moment to moment. Remember - you are not your process - underneath it all, you are perfection. The purpose of the healing work is to release all that prevent your human self from fully realizing this.

Depending on the chakras being stimulated, the signs and symptoms of this releasing or “processing” vary.

CROWN - 7TH CHAKRA

When this chakra is stimulated and opens up, you may feel like your head is being operated on - like someone is sticking needles or rods in your skull (or pulling them out). You might have migraines headaches - signs that energy blocks are being worked on. When stuck energies are released, you may have tingling sensations and or heat in your body (especially in your spine, head, hands and feet). There may be shooting sensations of electricity running through your spinal cord, and bursts and explosions of inner lights. Intuitions may come easily without having to think - you just know what’s “True”.

BROW - 6TH CHAKRA

When this chakra - also known as the “3rd Eye” - is stimulated and opens up, you may have a tingling electrical sensation on your brow (or just sense a presure). You may see colors, shadows, images, sparkling lights, auras, or spirits (and ghosts). Past life scenarios may play out within your inner vision, and your dreams may become vivid and seem quite real.

THROAT - 5TH CHAKRA

When this chakra is stimulated and opens up, you may feel like speaking copiously and quickly, or singing spontaneously and energetically. You may hear inner sounds, songs, voices or noise. Your telepathy opens up and you can sense people’s hidden thoughts and intentions. Words and sounds start to have more power and meaning, and you can feel the vibrations of people just by their words.

HEART - 4TH CHAKRA

When this chakra is stimulated and opens up, you may feel it flutter or ache - this indicates that your heart is going through “growing pains”, expanding in its capacity to love. When sadness is being released, you may cry or weep profusely over the slightest things, or for no reason at all. The heart is a very sensitive center - it feels everything very deeply. You may have periods where you love everyone.. and everything is beautiful and lovely.

SOLAR PLEXUS - 3RD CHAKRA

When this chakra is stimulated and opens up, fears may be released in the form of body shakes, or as a loosening of the bowels (diarrhea). When anger is being released, you may feel like yelling and screaming, and all of a sudden feel nauseous and throw up. You may project a more powerful presence you did not have before, as your words are imbued with authority and intensity.

ASTRAL - 2ND CHAKRA

When this chakra is stimulated and opens up, you may have all sorts of sexual thoughts and feelings. Over many lifetimes, you have had many intimate relationships with many souls. If there are any suppressed and unfulfilled sexual energies and attachments with any of them, this will make itself known, or will be processed astrally in your dreams (which helps conveniently avoid the awkwardness of societal constraints). When the energies (and karmas) of these connections are complete, these relationships may shift into a more unconditional form of love, or they will totally release and fall away.

ROOT - 1ST CHAKRA

When this chakra is stimulated and opens up, you may feel warmth or intense heat in different parts of your body, especially at the base of your spine. Your body may feel very heavy and grounded into the earth, and you may start to gain weight. Your feet may become very sensitive, and you may feel spiraling (vortex) energies going up and down. Your physical connection to nature, the planet, growing and nurturing things (and people) becomes very important.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Fic: I Would

6.1k words, G rated 

Fic by @torestoreamends, and art by @plati-arts.

Draco and Astoria visit the Manor for Boxing Day, and things don’t go very well. 

In Cursed Child, Scorpius talks about the moment when Draco defied Lucius and chose Astoria. For the longest time I’ve been wanting to write my version of that, and here it finally is, along with a beautiful illustration of one of the scenes by the amazing @platinasi, who inspired me to finally write this fic.

lucia-ik  asked:

First of all I love your Voltron family au so much and your art is just gorgeous. Now the prompt: I think you did something like that awhile back where the kids ask how Keith and Shiro confessed to each other, but what if the kids regularly ask about it and one day that spark is just gone and they force their daddies to reenact their love confession. And shiro and keith are both thrown back completely forgetting that their children are there and the kid are like urgh why won't they stop kissing?

I’m glad you do thank you!! They are precious babs <3 I try my best \o/ For those who might want to read fanfic wherein Shiro and Keith first met before they adopted the kiddies that contains the detailed confession. :D

[The Voltron Family] If there was one thing Lance, Hunk and Pidge loved asking their daddies, it was their “love story”: how they met each other for the first time, how they became friends, how they confessed to each other, their first kiss and how they fell in love. The whole shebang. It made them happy, so it had been a usual story to tell during their camping trips. Usually it all depended whom they were asking because both would have different ways of telling the story, especially the confession.

SHIRO’S VERSION

Shiro: I was sweating. Hands, forehead, feet—MY WHOLE BODY! 
Pidge: Um, ew? *disgusted face*  *giggles*
Shiro: But I couldn’t handle it anymore. Your Daddy Keith was just in front of me. Sitting wearing an Adventure Time hoodie. It was adorable. He looked so soft and cuddly.
Lance: But…? *lil toes curling up from excitement*
Shiro: BUT HE WASN’T EVEN LOOKING AT ME AT ALL!!
Hunk: *dramatic gasp* NO WAY!
Shiro: *nods* I know! Your Daddy Keith was such a snob. Books were more important to him than spending time with me! And then I asked him if he has kissed someone. I was dying on the inside cause he looked SO SHOCKED and TERRIFIED. *hands on his face* I found it so endearing. Which was odd cause it could’ve been the day our friendship ended but I still went for the kill. Because I was so in love with him—HE NEEDED TO KNOW!
Pidge: You were very brave, Daddy Shiro. Like a soldier! *proud*

KEITH’S VERSION

Keith: I wanted to punch your Daddy Shiro.
Hunk: *GASP* Daddy Keith, that’s bad!!!! 
Keith: *frowns* I know. But he was making me feel… *turns away* THINGS. 
Lance: *chuckles* *teasing tone* You just liked him!
Keith: *turns to Lance* *makes a face* Yeah, well, I didn’t want to.
Hunk: Why not?
Keith: It’s weird. No one likes me.
Hunk: I like you. *frowns*
Keith: *HEART MELTING* AWWW BABY. I like you too! But anyways, that’s why I was shocked and fell off the couch. It was like gravity telling me not to hurt the boy in front of me. 
Pidge: *giggles nonstop* *hands on her tummy* I love this part.
Keith: *smiles fondly* Of course you would.

They know the story by heart. Even the versions with added parts. But one night, when they were done watching anime in the living room, Pidge wanted them to reenact the confession scene to them. On their own couch.

Keith: *in disbelief* But… why?
Pidge: *shrugs* Why not?
Shiro: *laughs* *tugs Keith* C’mon, baby. For old time’s sake.
Keith: BUT WHY?
Shiro: *positions himself on the sofa* *in acting mode* Keith, can I kiss you?
Keith: Wha— *gets pulled down by the three kids to the floor* *glares at them* OH MY GOD. 
Pidge: *laughs* But Daddy Keith, you were supposed to be on the floor! You fell!! My fave part, remember? You cannot NOT do it!
Keith: *mutters* Fine. *acting mode* Ugh.
Shiro: *dramatic gasp* Keith, are you okay?!!
Keith: *glares at Shiro* Shiro, are you fu–
Shiro: *whispers* Friggin. *looks pointedly at the kids watching them*
Keith: Are you FRIGGIN serious?!
Shiro: *looks around* C-can we at least get you up here on the sofa?
Keith: *gets comfy on the floor* *smirks* Nope. We’re doing this now.
Shiro: *looks at Keith shyly* This isn’t exactly how I wanted to confess to the one I love, yknow?
Keith: *hands on mouth* *dramatic gasp* YOU LOVE ME?
Shiro: *rolls eyes* Yeah I do. And I’d love to kiss you if you feel the same.
Lance: *tries to contain his squeals* *Hunk squeezes his hands*
Keith: No homo?
Shiro: Homo all the way, bro.
Keith and the three kids: BROOOOOOOOOOOOO.
All five of them: *laughs*
Hunk: This is the part where a book fell on Daddy Keith’s head. He’s in pain.
Keith: But he didn’t mind. *smiles at Hunk* *looks at Shiro* YOU LOVE ME.
Shiro: *smiles fondly* I do. Do you feel the same way or…
Keith: *laughs* I do. *covers mouth* OH. MY. GOD. You love me. It’s mutual.
Keith and the three kids: DUUUUUUUUUDDDEEEE!!!
Shiro: *looks at Hunk, Pidge, Lance* You guys really knows this by heart huh?
Lance: Shhh!h Continue!!! *pats Shiro*
Shiro: *chuckles* *looks down at Keith* Now will you please come back up here so I can—
Lance, Hunk and Pidge: —KISS MY NEW BOYFRIEND? *giggles*
Keith: *laughs* *gets pulled by Shiro*
Shiro: Hey. *grins and pulls Keith closer*
Keith: Hey yourself.

Then of course they ended up kissing, Shiro pampering Keith with kisses all over his face causing Keith to giggle. Then it just goes on and on and on.

Pidge: Ugh. It’s been half an hour already. They’re not done yet.
Lance: *tugs Shiro* Daddy Shiro, we’re going to bed now. Let’s go.
Shiro: *doesn’t even notice Lance or the kids at all* *too busy kissing Keith*
Lance: *hands in the air* I can’t believe this! This was a bad idea, Pidge!
Pidge: I must agree. *frowns* *head resting on her hand*
Hunk: *beams* I don’t think so. 

Of course this is that part, just had to draw that one. HAHAHHAA

anchoram-fr  asked:

Could you maybe do some sort of short tutorial/show off a couple of ridgeback hands and feet? I cannot for the life of me seem to get them right :v

hey sorry for the late reply; i tried to find a sensible way of making a tutorial about this but that didn’t really work out so i just ended up doing some random hands and feet. Sorry it’s a bit messy and inconsistent (especially the hands), I’m a bit busy lately orz

The ridgeback hands/feet i draw are pretty much just generic dragon hands/feet with the added big claw :’’D Also I’m not really that good with hands so my apologies that there are not more coherent sketches of those. I usually just reference my own hand when drawing them so maybe try that and see if it helps at all. I found that it kinda helped me with the thumb placement.

I’m also a very inconsistent artist in general so I change my methods and the way the feet/hands look often depends a lot on the character’s general body build; a heavy, muscular dragon is gonna have stocky, strong looking paws and legs. The ones I drew here are pretty damn dainty and weak looking so I’d guess they belong to an artisan of some kind (;-◞౪◟-)

If you want a bigger version of these you can get it HERE 

I wish I could be of more help but I hope I was able to shed some light on the issue! (*´・v ・)

Hello victoria! It's me again, sorry for disturbing, but do you have any tips for drawing hands and feet perspective?? Thank you, have a nice day!!

You’re not bothering me! Sorry it took so long to answer!! 

Perspective and foreshortening can be really difficult, especially with hands and feet! Make sure you can accurately draw hands and feet NOT in perspective first before trying foreshortening Honestly I’m still learning all of this too.. I was going to try and draw a tutorial, but after searching on Google, I found some better examples than what I would’ve produced haha.. (these are not my art):

This image seems pretty helpful for hands: 

And this one for feet

Remember to break everything down into basic shapes first before adding any detail! Also the fingernails and toenails can really help to suggest perspective as well. I hope that helped!!

Crystals and Colours

Source: [“The Complete Crystal Handbook” by Cassandra Eason]

The color of a crystal is one of the easier ways of identifying the right crystal for specific healing, personal empowerment, or protection purposes. If a color is “hot” like red – associated with life blood and fire – its action will be dynamic, fast, and go straight to the root of a problem. In contrast, a green crystal represents gradual growth and nature, linked to a slow but continuing increase in any area of life. The shade of a crystal can also offer clues: a sparkling transparent clear quartz crystal, reflecting sunlight, has different energies and vibrations than a cloudier shimmering white selenite that resembles moonlight.

The power of a crystal can be enhanced by placing it near a burning candle of a similar color. It could be beneficial to build up a collection of crystals in different shades and intensities of brightness in the same color, such as soothing transparent purple amethyst and brighter opaque sugilite that is still gentle but faster acting. Feel free to try using “antidote” colors as well; for example, draw on the power of a blue crystal if someone is very angry or a situation is too fast moving.

The following are “traditional” color association for crystals and their uses. These correspondences should be used as suggestions or ideas, and are by no means concrete or absolute; personal associations within magic are generally more powerful, though these correspondences are a good base to gain inspiration or work from.

I think I have too much beta carotene in my system because my skin, especially the soles of my hands & feet , has take on a yellow tint :/ I don't think it's that harmful but I really want to get rid of this yellow tint . I'm pretty sure it's because I'm eating a lot of fruits & veg. Any tips on how I can get rid of this yellow-ness? Anything I should do? Food that I should avoid ?

I also have seen that in people with liver issues.

Go get a blood test & make sure.  Fructose is processed in the liver & some people can not eat a lot of fruit w/o injuring their liver.

Narnia: Caspian/Reader

YAY YAY YAY I FEEL LIKE NO ONE DOES (I got excited too, it’s great.) Can I have a Caspian imagine on the Dawn Treader on that one island (terebinthia??) where they do all the slave trading and they get captured and stuff (remember that part? Haha) and by the time Caspian gets there and saves the day, y/n has already been sold and so he goes back and saves her however you see fit and fluff and happy romanticness between Caspian and reader?

Author: Queen of Geeks

(Hope you like it!)

Everyone was wary as we made our way into the old stone building. Caspian led us all in front of the group and every so often he’d glance back. While he led our band, I brought up the rear, Lucy and Edmund were in the middle while their annoying cousin ran off somewhere. The rest of the Dawn Treader’s crew were keeping an eye on the kings and queen.

Sitting in the middle of the room was a pedestal. On top of it lay an open book filled with neat handwriting. Lucy and Caspian read over the book and announced that we were getting closer. As they spoke, I felt something land behind me. Grateful I had my sword instead of my crossbow, I whirled around to block a blow. The clanging of metal caught everyone’s attention. They all pulled out their weapons in defence.

“We want no harm.” I warned our attackers as they descended from the ceiling.

“No can do.” My attacker told me with a sly grin before swinging. I blocked it and the fight began around us. I kicked the sword out of someone’s hand and watched as Lucy, Edmund and Caspian fought. Each of them were equipped with their own weapons. Lucy had her sister’s bow and the boys had their swords. All three of them were able to fight on their own and we seemed okay.

Until there was a scream from outside. The doors flew open. Standing at knife point was Edmund and Lucy’s annoying cousin. The knife blade was at his throat. One slice would kill him quickly. Everyone froze.

I looked at Caspian and my heart nearly skipped a beat in joy. Thankfully, he was okay. Maybe bruised, but we all were. Caspian met my gaze before he looked me over once for any injuries. I nodded to assure him I was okay before slowly making my way towards him.

“Now, if you want anything to happen to this,” The man pointed to Eustace with his knife. “I suggest you put down your weapons.”

“(Y/N), do it.” Caspian told me. As much as I wanted to argue, I knew I couldn’t. Like everyone else, I lay my sword on the floor but made sure I stayed near Caspian. Obviously they wanted something, but I didn’t know what. And I swore an oath to protect the king.

“Take the girl, the one who screams like one and that one.” The obvious leader pointed to Lucy, her cousin and me. His workers grabbed the three of us.

“No!” Edmund and Caspian reached for us but were struck down.

“Caspian!”

“Edmund!” Lucy and I yelled as we were dragged out. We kicked and fought but it was no use.

Especially when they tied our hands and feet. The three of us were dragged away to a group of people who were tied up like us. Then I realised that it was a slave trade. I looked at Lucy and Edmund.

“Both of you, stay behind me.” I whispered. They nodded and I moved in front of them. While nobody was paying attention to us, I pulled a knife out of my boot. Thankfully nobody bothered checking on us.

“Do not cut the bindings. Yet.” I told Lucy as I slipped the knife into her hands.

“Why not?” Eustace protested. I shot him a look so deadly he closed his mouth. Lucky slipped the knife into her boot and looked at me.

“What are we going to do?”

“Stay calm?” I offered. She nodded and stayed close to her cousin.

“And now, we have this!” The ring leader of the trade dragged Eustace up despite our efforts to keep him with his. I held back Lucy to prevent her from doing anything reckless. Otherwise there would be more trouble.

Then they came for us. They grabbed my arm and pulled me from Lucy. I nodded for her to use her knife and I kicked as I tried to free myself. My foot made contact with one of the trader’s shins and he dropped me before another punched me in the stomach. I sucked in a breath and was held tightly.

“Now, this one has a bit of fight in them. But nothing discipline won’t fix.” The leader announced to the crowd. They laughed and I growled. “Feisty, aren’t they?”

Frankly, I was disappointed in the low prices of the bidding. Surely I was worth more. However, I sold and pulled off the stage to be replaced by Lucy. But then there was a familiar voice. And then all hell broke loose. There was a flash of metal and my bindings were cut. I turned to face my bidder who was a part of Caspian’s crew.

“Did you think I’d let Caspian’s greatest be sold?” He asked. I smiled as I pulled away the bindings. I turned and kicked a trader in the face.

“(Y/N)!” I heard Caspian yell. I turned and he threw a sword and I caught it.

“Can’t have you best defenceless, can we?” I asked with a grin. Caspian returned the smile.

“I love you too much.” I almost froze at his reply.

“We’re talking about this one the boat.” I told him.

“I suppose we’ll have to!”

“Good! Because I love you too!” I yelled. Then Edmund yelled at us.

“Is this really the time?”
