You Have Me

Fandom: The Hunger Games

Word count: 2170

Characters: Finnick x reader

Warnings: Flashbacks to the reader murdering someone, general Hunger Games issues, references to depression

Summary: You fall in love with Finnick after you win the Hunger Games.

You walked into the Victor’s Village alone, twisting your hands together unconsciously.  You had sent the camera crews away as soon as you could, because having a swarm of cameras pointing at you still felt strange.

Huh. You’d killed people, and it was the cameras that bothered you. That probably just showed the type of person you’d become.

Victor’s Village was quieter than you’d though it would be. At least it meant that you wouldn’t have to talk to anyone, though. It had been so long since you had a moment to yourself.

Untitled || Three

Pairing: Reggie x Reader

Request: 3-lined fics for all of the SBC. @satanwithstardust, my girlfriend, here is yours <3

A/N: Once again, we are faced with my own weakness- taking things people say way too seriously (and thus began this 3-lined fic journey)

He sat in Pop’s alone, not an unusual occurrence but one that bothered him all the same.

The routine was simple: every night Reggie would get there an hour before her and her friends, waiting with her favorite milkshake in case he got up the courage to finally talk to her, and when she arrived their group would walk past him without a second thought, without a second glance.

And every night, Reggie left Pop’s with an empty heart and a melted milkshake.

Thoughts and Theories on the Even & Mikael situation

I’ve had a lot of thoughts about everything that’s going on in season 4 since last night’s clip. Especially with the whole Even+Mikael situation. We got some explanation about what went down, that also led to Yousef losing his faith. But there has to be more to the story, and I really hope we will get a better insight (most likely from Even). Right now we don’t know exactly what went down between Mikael and Even, since we only got a short version from a third party. We don’t know if curing Even was Even’s own idea, or if it was something Mikael put out there (that all depends on how you hear what Yousef said)

But one thing we know is, that SKAM is not a show that has a black and white image of good guys and bad guys. Everyone makes mistakes and they learn from it and grows as human. And the ones who seem to be the bad guys all have a story that explains their actions (Ingrid, William, Sonja). 

This show does not have villains.

Besides the obvious themes in this season, I also think there’s an underlying theme of dealing with you own emotions through other people, because then you don’t have to face your own weaknesses and insecurities. I wrote a post about that a couple of days ago - how I think Sana was dealing with her own feelings for Yousef and attempt to get over him, though Noora and her getting over William.

So, I was thinking if that was also the case with the Mikael/Even thing. An explanation for Mikael’s (re)actions. As I understood the story Yousef was telling, Mikael was the one who thought Even should be cured for his homosexuality. Could the reason behind such a strong reaction be, that he was mirroring his own sexuality in Even. That Mikael is gay, but can’t deal with it because of his religion. That he believes his own feelings are a sin, and therefor reacts strongly on Even’s sexuality (like Isak being a dick about the dance teacher because he didn’t want to be associated with him and face his own sexuality … I know it’s not the same, but you get the picture). 

Maybe Mikael was distancing himself from Even because he didn’t want to be associated with homosexuality. That Mikael was dealing with his disgrace of his own sexuality, by letting Even know it is a sin and he’s going to hell.

Maybe Even and Mikael even did share a mutual kiss, and maybe they got caught, so Mikael was throwing Even under the bus, which hit him really hard. Being gay and Muslim is a big taboo in a lot of communities, and I think that could be the reason behind the whole Mikael distancing himself from Even (but still keeping his number in his phone and don’t want to drag him in their youtube video, because deep down he doesn’t despise him, he just can’t deal with his own sexuality)

I have nothing to build this on. This is just some thoughts I had, that I wanted to share. Because I am seeking explanations, and I don’t believe anyone is going to be the villain. There is always an explanation in this show (and being religious is just not enough. That’s doesn’t excuse anything)

Sometimes you don’t realize your own strength until you come face to face with your greatest weakness.

The most beautiful sound - Dean Winchester x Deaf!Reader

Title: The most beautiful sound

Pairing: Dean Winchester x Deaf!Reader

Warnings: None

Prompts: Could I please request a fluffy fic with Sam or dean and a deaf female reader? I’m deaf and I’d love to have a reader actually be like me. Thanks you for even read in this. Xo

If you could do an one-shot of Dean falling in love with a deaf girl, who lost her family; and he and Sam takes her in, despite the fact she’s like 20? Smut can happen?! I would love to see this happen, and thank you!!!

Chuck how he loved watching you. Just standing there, his weight resting on the doorframe and a smile on his lips as you sang something to yourself when you made dinner for them. He felt like a creep, maybe someone could call him that, but he was willing to take it. He just loved your voice, although you didn’t particularly liked doing so, but when you were alone he had gotten to know your little dirty secret.

Maybe you could listen to songs, not in the way he, Sam or most of the other people could, but you had your way of loving music. And he secretly (yes it was his own dirty secret) knew as to how. He had spent hours upon hours on youtube, watching ASL videos of songs and (guiltily again) had gotten to learn most of them.

Dean sighed like a teen girl gazing at her crush when they weren’t looking. He shook his head, taking a glance to make sure Sam wasn’t anywhere to be seen and he wouldn’t have to put up with his teasing and took a deep breath. He smiled as he walked closer towards you. He knew you hated being sneaked up at, not that you could really tell or not, but whenever it was either him or Sam it seemed that you had no problem. Plus, guilty Dean was but- he loved the small squeak that left your lips and the way you jumped when he placed a hand on your shoulder.

Just like now. He could already see the blush spreading on your cheeks as a scowl later set on your face. Sometimes only your facial expressions were enough for him, just like it seemed to be the same for you. The two of you could communicate in a way that was beyond words and sounds. It was something that shocked others and that not even Sam or Castiel could understand but it was there, and it only made you come closer.

“Not funny.” you mumbled as he laughed.

Please stop cyber bullying my friend!!!

Okay i’m getting sick of chimire harassing and cyber-bullying one of my close friend till the point of depression. I don’t normally make this post but

“CYBER-BULLYING” SHOULDN’T BE TOLERATED HERE ON TUMBLR! They needs to leave my friend alone. Sending all them hateful anonymous messages about her because you’re to weak to show your own face is disgusting.

But the reason i’m saying all this is not for you my friends to send hate back to that ‘low life’. But to send supporting/positive messages to @misses-no-body-is-here. She is such a nice, kind, and sweet person. And seeing her being attacked almost every day has driven me to tears. 

And I just want you guys to support her in her time of need. We tougher need to put an end to cyber-bullying and the damage it can cause.

Thank you.
