• you guys once was walking the boardwalk of a beach
• he saw a juggler
• he was so very impressed, he kept clapping and saying “oh woah”

I warned you that I’m a mess. I let you see the mess. hell, people warned you that I’m a mess. yet you decided to stick around and explore the mess a little. you stuck around and made a little space for yourself before I even realized what you were doing. you started picking up the broken glass and piles of trash around you. you started making my heart lighter. you started to make yourself a little space in the mess that I call my life.
SOUR SKITTLES. So, about the first time Derek smells Stiles on Scott and/or vice versa-- or maybe he could never really tell their scents apart anyway, maybe it's only when something really obvious happens, like stealthy hand-holding during a movie, or Stiles kissing Scott with tongue and closed eyes and wandering hands when he thinks no one is looking, that realization hits Derek like a brick to his stomach. And then he ANGSTS and PINES until Scott carefully asks him if, if he'd like to, maybe.
S O U R S K I T T L E S
Derek being all super angsty about the fact that he can smell what they get up to during late night patrols, their “snack runs” in the middle of research all-nighters and he’s extremely, shamefully jealous when Stiles gets to stick around at the end of pack meetings, Scott’s natural right hand man, Scott’s rock, and while Derek’s sort of been elevated to a place where he’s an important source of information for all things supernatural, he’s still not on Stiles’ level, his voice still doesn’t hold the kind of sway that Stiles’ does and he’s not only jealous but angry about being jealous because he understands why. Stiles is completely in tune with Scott’s way of thinking and always asks the right questions to help inform Scott’s decisions and Derek just can’t compete with any of it, can’t compete with what Stiles means to Scott or what Scott means to Stiles and yet he yearns, yearns for what they have, sees their fleeting caresses, their effortless intimacy, their silent, knowing communication and he longs.
Derek gets kidnapped by a coven of witches (which is some bullshit) and the fuckers are gonna try to use his blood to snare the whole pack in some advanced spellwork. He manages to get hold of a phone after he pulls himself lose from the wolfsbane laced handcuffs they got him in (Morpheus style) and then knocking out the witch on guard duty. He’s gasping because the wolfsbane is creeping into his blood stream and it’s fucking potent and the phone rings and rings without answer
and then Scott picks up,
and he can’t help letting out a sob and Scott immediately whispers his name, his voice in equal parts filled with terror and relief
and he tells them about the witches’ plan, that they’re all in danger, that they need to protect themselves and Scott interrupts him to ask if he’s alright, if there are any clues around him as to where they’re keeping him. Derek just shakes his head, tells Scott to forget about him, to focus on sabotaging the witches’ plan and he only realises he’s been put on speaker when Stiles cuts in angrily, furious even, telling him he better shut up about them leaving him behind and start giving them some clues as to where he is, or Stiles is going to kick his ass when they find him
and Derek fights through the pain, looks around through watery eyes, telling them what he already knows from having spent what must be days in the windowless, damp room, trying to think of anything, anything at all that might be helpful but there’s nothing, it just smells faintly of brass and oak and there’s a low humming noise and then everything suddenly goes black
He wakes up with a banging headache from where someone clubbed him in the back of his head. He’s strung up against a wall and he hangs there, resigned, because let’s face it, he’s kinda used to this and he’s not afraid of it anymore, doesn’t fear for himself, just for his friends, for them
It’s all very anti climatic when they come for the rescue
At least it is for Derek since he only faintly hears the noise, explosions going off in the distance and then there are careful hands lifting him down, carrying him up into bright bright light and everything goes black again
He wakes up in his own bed, with both of them leaning over him, Scott lying along his side and running his fingers over the scarred skin across his ribcage while Stiles dabs at his forehead with a cool, damp towel.
And they get all frowny when he insist that they don’t have to make a big deal out of him, well, Scott gets frowny and Stiles gets livid, only barely restraining himself from shouting after Scott gives him a look
And then Stiles climbs into bed and presses up against Derek’s other side and they pet and caress him and Stiles tells him what an idiot he is while Scott tries to sooth both of them and Derek starts to realise that maybe he never needed to feel jealous and upset about not being part of the Scott and Stiles dynamic in the first place
EVERYTHING IS SOUR SKITTLES AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT I’M DOING WITH MY LIFE
OMG I love dark slinky Dean! Moar moar! "Dark urge" is now my new favorite thing to say. It makes life much more dramatic. Like, right now have a DARK URGE to go to lunch and eat a sammich. If only I had a mustache to twirl, then that would really be something...
Sam: Dean, you need to come out of that giant slinky! We got a new episode tomorrow!
Dean: No way, Sammy! I got RUM and SKITTLES! Everything a man might need.
Dean: Well…. Except an angel. Where’s Cas, anyways?
Sam: Have you Lokis seen Cas?
Other Loki: I’m c’llectible!
Dean: Send me an angel….
Cas: Hello, Sam. I have been out with my new social media friend, William Shatner.
Wiliam Shatner: I’m …. having …. some trouble …. with Tribbles.
Dean: Is that Cas? Does he still have his shirt buttons undone?
Sam: Uhhh, yeah, Dean. Actually, he has a lot of shirt buttons undone. Wow, nearly all of them.
Cas: But Sam, my shirt-
Sam: Shhh! And hey Dean, Cas has a new pet! He’ll bring it in to you!!
Dean: Whew! Gettin’ hard to breathe in there.
Sam: Where’s Cas?
Cas: Hello, Sam.
Sam: Quit doin’ that!
Dean: The Tribbles ate all my Skittles and drank all the rum.
William Shatner: Yeah, they’ll …. do that. They’re worse’n …. Captain …. Jack!
Sometimes I like to doodle things like if OC’s got a magic pencil a la Spongebob or Chalkzone. Also, come on Chalkzone, the answer is you draw a machine that turns drawings into real things. By the magic of Chalkzone, it has to work. It’s like that guy who turned everything in Skittles? You line the inside of a large glove with Skittles and make him wear it. He can’t turn the liner-Skittles into Skittles since they’re already Skittles, so the liner-Skittles are stable. There you go.
Anyway some pchat doodles, also some of Matt/Vice’s Mom and Dad in the lower left– I don’t have names for them, idk if their culture even encourages individuality to the point of names, but I just call them Papa and Mama. :O
truth or dare. how do you feel about sour skittles?
love everything about it. especially love Scott coming home from a difficult day being an EMT, taking pain, giving comfort, trying and trying until it feels like he’s been sucked dry, and he lets himself into the house, kind of drops his satchel in the hallway and makes a visible effort to straighten up before he gets into the living room, to brush aside the crushing pressure of the day. Stiles is at the dining table, marking papers with a red pen. Derek’s chopping carrots and suggesting nicer ways to say ‘everything you’ve just said about the founding fathers is based on a cartoon that was made in the nineties’.
“Honey, I’m home,” he says and kisses the top of Stiles’s head, looks down at the mess of papers. They can eat with their plates on their laps, maybe. “How was your day?” Stiles doesn’t answer, turns and wraps his arms around Scott’s waist, presses his face into his stomach. Derek kisses his cheek, comes and stands behind him, solid warmth at his back. He sighs, leans back, scratches behind Stiles’s ear. “I’m home,” he says again, and it feels more true this time.
“Dinner’s on the stove. Once Stiles clears his shit off the table, I’m gonna bend you over it and rim you until you’re begging. Okay? Then Stiles is going to fuck you while I get the rice cooking.”
Stiles, who had been looking indignant, smiles slowly, eyes glittering wickedly in the soft light. “We could leave the grading here. I can only imagine getting your jizz on them would improve at least a few.”
“We’ll give those ones an A,” Derek says. Scott has no idea what he’s done to deserve them.
Later, pinned down and adding another set of clawmarks to the dining table, he figures it’s something pretty good.
A/n: DAY THREE OF 100+ FOLLOWERS SPECIAL. RN IS ASHTON AND LIKE A FLUFFLY ROAD TRIP SHIT AND YEAH HOPE YOU LIKE IT
I was so excited. Y/n finally agreed to go on a road trip to absolutely no where I found.
I was packing up my bags, and things we will probably need. She agreed to 6 Days but she said that’s it.
She was never really a huge one for adventures, always inside, cuddling a pillow if she didn’t have me.
I mean sure she of course went outside… She just don’t do things like camping and outdoor barbecues.
But well I Love her of course. Well I mean I didn’t exactly tell her that yet… But that was my plan. To tell her on our trip.
But I have a feeling she doesn’t think I love her, but I’m not completely sure…. Well either way I seriously love her so so much.
After I packed all my shit, clothes, batteries, different water bottles etc. , I called her.
After like two rings she picked up.
“I swear I’m packing. Pink or lime green?” She said quickly, just knowing it was me.
“What the fuck are you packing that is pink or lime green.” I giggled, thinking of the weirdest possible things she owns that are lime green and pink.
“Oh- uh well you know, pick a damn colour Ash.” I could seriously feel her grin.
Like I could imagine her, on the phone grinning.
Fuck I’m a weird boyfriend.
Uhm… Can I pick both? I mean what if one isn’t nice looking? Then it would have been like.. Well you would have wanted to bring the other one and…“ I started and she groaned.
“Fuck Ash fine I’ll pack both.” She Sighed, obviously not upset but faking it.
“So is that all you called for?” I asked her, a bit confused.
“Oh! Right I wanted to ask what kind of clothes I should be packing for these 8 days?” She asked me.
8 days-? You know what I’m not even going to question it.
“I thought you were already packing?” I smirked, zipping up my things.
“Uh.. Of course I’m packing.. Why wouldn’t I be..?” She laughed nervously.
I smiled to myself. She was so cute.
“Right. Well you should just pack like… Well you know, clothes? I’m not sure I’m just packing like jeans, shorts, sweats, shirts.. You know? I honestly don’t even know what the weather is going to be like.” I admitted chuckling a bit.
“Well prepare for like… Lots of bags Ashton. If you don’t like it it’s our fault!” She just laughed.
“Okay okay you should get back to packing missy.” I told her blankly, sounding a bit formal, as I tried to be.
“Yes sir!” She said loudly. All I did was laugh. I could seriously imagine her doing a little salute.
“Okay okay love you Ashton bye.” She said, with little giggles but then stopped. She just realized what she said.
She said Love you. I was a little speechless, but I was going to reply.
“Yeah I-” she cut me off.
“Okay see you soon bye!”
And she hung up.
Well okay then. I was a little sad honestly. Why did she hang up?
Well maybe she was just scared or something.
I sighed, grabbing some of my things,
My two bags of clothes, and a Tent bag, just in case of course. I put the things by my door, going back for blankets and a air mattress.
I grabbed my other things after that, packing my truck up with the things I have, I was going to pick up y/n afterwards.
I had asked Michael to watch like the two plants I have in my house, knowing Calum and Luke are probably doing something different every day and night, too busy to water my two plants.
Anyway, once I packed up, and locked my door, Michael having a key of course, I went to my truck, going to pick up y/n.
Well I mean I hope she’s done packing anyway.
I started driving, what if she doesn’t like anything I have planned…
Wait no she said love you I’m sure she will love it…
Ugh what am I saying.
I sighed, pulling up to her apartment building.
“Ashton stop thinking like this.” I whispered to myself, getting out of the truck.
I walked up to the door way, clicking one of the things by the door, to let me up, obviously clicking y/n’s.
The buzzer noise thing surprised me, as always, I opened the door and made it to her apartment door. I took the key out, that I had on my key chain as she has a key for my house.
I opened the door, walking in.
“Y/n?” I called, looking around.
Damn she packs messily.
I’m not sure why but there is things all over the floor.
“Y/nnnnn!!!!” I called happily, going down the small hallway to her bedroom, a jump in my walk.
Before I entered through her door she stopped me.
“Ashy!” He giggled, wrapping her arms around my neck, kissing my nose.
That’s weird. She almost never giggles…
“You aren’t done packing I assume?” I smirk, as she pulls away from my nose shyly, me being able to look down at her.
She shook her head, nervously laughing.
“Thought so.” I kissed her forehead, going to enter her room.
“Nope! You really can’t go in there! Wait right there, I’m almost done?” She smiled, pushing my chest playfully.
I gave her a fake pout, stepping back and she closed her door.
I went back into her little living room, tidying up a bit, putting things where they belong and shit.
I sat on her couch, well more laid down.
I closed my eyes, just wanting to rest.
After maybe 10-15 minutes,she came out with three bags.
Each bag a different style.
I opened My eyes.
“You ready babe?” I asked, sitting up.
She just nodded happily. I stood up, opening my arms for a hug.
She made a playful disgusted face, walking into my arms, wrapping her arms around my neck once more, to slightly look up at my, is being about the same height.
“Hey princess.” I grinned.
“Hia Ashy.” She whispered.
I smiled a bit, slowly leaving a kiss on her lips.
“You know I’m still not used to that haircut.” She mumbles, my lips lingering on hers.
I chuckled, kissing her head.
“Road trip time?” I asked , going to pick up her bags.
“Holy shit what’s in these things?” I asked her, them being heavy as fuck.
“Uh you know…. Things?”
She was hiding something.
“Oh goodness here we go.” I mumbled putting the heaviest bag on the couch, opening it up.
“Really y/n?!” I laughed a bit, seeing her bag full of electronics.
I shook my head, taking the laptop out and setting it on the ground.
“But Ashton!” She whined.
“Y/n you won’t need it.” I laughed, taking the cords for it out also.
She took the laptop, bringing it back to her room.
While she was gone I took out her other useless cords, her two tablets, backup phone and the cords for those.
“You can keep your cameras and your one phone okay? Well and your batteries but that’s it.” I stated, zipping the bag back up.
“Okay I’m going to take this and the lightest bag down to the truck and I swear If that bag is full of high hella and boots I’m not even going to look.” I laughed, kissing her cheek, before walking down to my truck.
Afterwards, as my truck was started I was waiting for her.
I really hope this whole things works out.
I smiled as Ashton left. I have a feeling even though I’m not a fan of the outdoors I’m going to love this, just because I was going to be with him.
As I was unpacking the amount of shoes I had, Ashton being right as always I ended up settling on three pairs, out of eight.
Some sandals (flip flops.. Or uh whatever you call them) a pair of runners and just normal casual shoes.
I slipped the casual shoes on and was thinking to myself.
Oh god I can’t believe I told him earlier ‘love you’
Like it’s been 6 months and I just don’t know if that Is what you’re suppose to say?
I mean I do love him, I really actually do I just don’t know if he loves me back… Like at all. Sometimes I’m honestly scared he is just going to flat out break up with me.
I shook my head, telling myself to forget about it and I grabbed the smaller bag I packed My shoes into and grabbed my keys, locking my doors and jogging down the stairs.
After I got into Ashton’s truck I kissed his cheek.
“Okay I’m good to go!” I exclaimed, putting my seat belt on.
He just smiled. First we had to stop and get food, well I mean junk food and drinks basically.
So Ashton pulled into a gas station, filling up the tank while I simply was inside, grabbing as much as I could hold.
From chocolate bars to chips,
From sour candy to laffy taffy,
Swedish fish to skittles, everything.
I put it all on the checkout counter, saying I wasn’t done, going to the drinks.
Surprisingly it was a rad ass gas station and had a small ish thing with like 40 packs of warm water bottles, granola bars, cereal etc.
I grabbed the case of water bottles, knowing Ash probably packed ones to fill up, without water and I got one box of Cereal.
I grabbed some granola bars, walking back to the front.
“I’m still no done! Oh and the gas on pump 5 okay?” I told the guy and he just looked pissed that he had to scan all the separate candy bars.
I actually got cold drinks this time,lots of a sort.
But that was when I heard Ashton’s giggle from behind me.
“Really y/n? All of this?” He giggled again, motioning to the front.
“Well it is 8 days Ashton.” I simply said, a bit sarcastically.
He just shook his head and smiled
“Only you.” He whispered, coming closer to kiss my head.
“Here I’m going to go to the washroom okay? I’ll be right back.” He said, going a different direction.
I took this as my chance to pay, I knew he hated it when I payed for things with him but sometimes I just think it’s fun to watch him get angry and pouty at me.
I paid for the things and the gas, asking for a few bags, the guy looking pissier than having to scan them.
I smiled as he handed the bags to me.
But that’s when Ashton came along.
“You paid?” He asked, a little confused considering he was obviously going to pay for it.
“Well I figured since you’re bringing me it is the least I could do.” I smiled sweetly. Trying to edge him on.
He pouted and took the bags from my hands, going to the door, as I Carried the case of waters.
He opened the door for me as he always did. And then I said thank you in a posh voice, opening my door to the truck,setting the waters down to then open the backseat cab door //(I know almost nothing when it comes to trucks so I’m deeply sorry if I’m butchering the truck language)//.
I then put the waters on the floor, Ashton setting one bag upfront and the others on the waters. He then closed the side door, as I got in an he closed my door behind me, going to his side.
Even before he got in the truck I had a chocolate bar in my hands, ready to eat.
“Really baby? It isn’t even 9 o'clock yet!” He laughed as he saw me.
Ah yes, the clock read 8:35am. And yes I did wake up at 6 to get ready and pack.
I slowly put the chocolate bar down, getting a little ‘chocolate isn’t the right choice’ glare from Ashton. Then I slowly picked up a granola bar out of its box and he nodded.
I pouted, eating my granola bar.
After a while I had my big blanket out, putting it over Ash’s knees and over my legs, as I was sitting cross legged.
We were almost to our destination, having drive for 3 hours.
Right now I was actually organizing the candy and unhealthy snacks on me lap, putting a bit in the glove department, then in the separate ziplock bags Ashton brought I was sorting them into different categories.
I was bad for that. Playing with my food when I’m bored.
After I finished, the clouds parted and I basically lunged for my sunglasses.
Damn the sun.
I turned to Ashton.
“Ashy are we there yet?” I whined to him.
“Almost.” He grinned.
A few days into our trip, when we set the tent up and put pillows and the air mattress in it we were laying on the back of my truck, looking up at the stars (on a blanket ofc).
We were just laying in silent. I sat up suddenly. I wanted to do this.
She just looked so perfect.
This night was so perfect.
Everything was perfect.
The time was perfect.
She then sat up too, a bit confused to why I was.
“Ashy is everything alright?” She asked me, a little quiet because we were in a campground, even though the nearest campers were almost 500 feet away.
“Everything is perfect.” I said, just so hypnotized by her voice, her eyes, her everything.
“Then why are we sitting up?” She asked quietly.
“Because I wanted to tell you something important.” I mumbled, bringing her closer to me, looking into her e/c (eye colour here lmao). Fuck I could stare at those damn eyes for days.
She swallowed, looking a little nervous.
“Y/n I wanted to tell you that I love you. I love you so so so much. Like I have been in love with you since we met, since I first laid my eyes on you. I have loved you ever since I held you in my arms for the first time. Y/n I’m just completely in love with you and I wanted to let you know.” I whispered, our faces extremely close.
She was kind of speechless.
“You… You love me?” Her eyes were locked to mine. It looked like they were watering.
“Completely in love with you baby.” I whispered once more to her.
“ I guess you already know I love you too from that voice call…
But I love you too.
I completely love you Ashton.” She grinned, softly pressing her lips to mine.
Wow that took long enough.
You probably thought this sucked but I just wanted to say thank you for over 150 followers, we started this account like a week ago… And wow. Okay and I know I took a little break in between these so Cals will for sure be up tomorrow! (It is up now )
That was Navyy’s response when I told her I was going to attempt to incorporate some Halloween candy into tonight’s dinner. But when all was done she ate the whole plate with no complaints other than the sauce being a little on the salty side.
If you are anything like us you probably have a glut of Halloween candy sitting around your house. Some of it came in via-trick-or-treating and some of it is just left around from the candy bowl that was not fully depleted. So aside from feeding it to children, taking it to coworkers/friends/students/relatives, or…just stuffing it into our own faces, what is there to do with this sugary (high-fructose corn syrupy?) glut?
Time to get creative.
Here are 5 options. There are probably more out there, so if you have a good idea send it in!
1. Skittles Stir Fry
Alright. So this one sounds weird at first-glance which is why I thought I would try it out on my family before sharing it with the rest of you. The basic premise is this: there are plenty of stir-fry sauces that have some sweet component to them, why not use candy instead of honey/sugar? Since we had plenty of Skittles around, I figured I would give them a try. The sauce I used was an adaptation from a caramel sauce recipe in Nancy McDermott’s Quick & Easy Vietnamese.
2 tbsp vegetable oil 1 tbsp chopped garlic 3 tbsp finely chopped ginger 2 tbsp chopped shallots or onion 2 tbsp fish sauce 2 tbsp brown sugar 1 tbsp white sugar ½ tsp salt ½ tsp black pepper 1 tsp dried chili flakes ¼ cup water
I made some minor modifications (more fish sauce, a little more water so it was saucier, and a little more garlic), but obviously the main change was switching out all the sugar for some simple syrup made from Skittles. I took a couple little baggies, dumped them into boiling water, and a few stirs later I had a sweet, reddish-brown liquid, that blended perfectly into my stir-fry sauce.
And as weird as it sounds, when everything was finished the Skittles flavor was nowhere to be found. Sure there was some residual sweetness, but with the ginger, garlic, and fish sauce whatever “fruity” trace of the candy seemed totally gone (for better or worse).
Everybody ate their portions!
2. Simple (Candy) Syrup
Candy makes for easy simple syrup. Whether you are using it for alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks, simple syrup can be a fun flavoring addition and an easy way to use up some candy. Typically the rule for simple syrup is to mix one part water to one part sugar - yielding a thick/sweet liquid. Fruity candies seem like a natural fit for this, but you could try it out with other types as well if you are feeling more adventurous. I always keep around some mint and lavender simple syrups in my fridge for mixed drinks, but candy simple syrups could be fun for a party. Probably wise to separate out candy colors, though, to ensure pretty colors.
3. Chili With Chocolate
I always add a touch of chocolate to my chili recipes. It was a trick I learned from a friend and have been doing ever since. It does not need much (maybe a piece or two), but it adds a little sweetness and depth of flavor, and totally works with the rest of the flavors involved. Tossing in a little chocolaty Halloween candy (you could even try something like a Reese’s piece) is not at all far-fetched. The more pure-chocolatey, though, the better.
4. Baking With Candy
This is probably a “duh” kind of answer, but candy is great in other baked desserts. Crumbled on top of bars, used in place of chocolate chips in cookies, or any number of other potential variations. If you like this kind of stuff in your baked treats I would highly recommend crushing/blending the candy of your choice and then freezing it in your most used portion sizes, that way the candy stays fresh, takes up a little less space (since you can get rid of the packaging), and no longer tempts you as it sits out in the candy bowl on the counter. Sweet baked goods are not something we try to overindulge in around here, but they are a great treat, and one that can be made better with the addition of some yummy candy bits.
5. Awesome Milkshakes
I am an ice cream fanatic, so I would be failing myself if I did not share that my favorite use for spare Halloween candy is about as simple as they get: a candy spiked milkshake. Dairy Queen fanatics will know this as a Blizzard, but if you are less familiar the concept is pretty simple: vanilla ice cream + milk + the candy (or candies) of your choice, blended into a thick, chunky milk shake. Reese’s pieces are our go-to here, but there are plenty of other candies that work really well: M&M’s, Butterfingers, Twix, Kit Kats, the possibilities are endless.
Hope you enjoyed, and have fun diving into the possibilities your left over candy presents!
