favorite line of the entire night

I stay rooted in places
I can no more call mine
Your name still echoes here
Behind forgotten smell and familiar void

I wore that shirt
You loved so much
To try and hold you close 
As if our memories were 
Still buried in its pockets. 

I tucked a bit of our memories 
In those old frames of my mind 
A little more of nostalgia 
In your favorite coffee 

I wish it didn’t taste so bitter 
I wish it didn’t burn my throat 
I wish these tears would stop, 
But this wound keeps bleeding. 

And may be that’s how 
this time works 
A journey between closed 
and empty hands 

Like the ticking of a clock 
Every sweep brings me closer 
To letting you go, I only miss 
The way it felt, so much hope 
An entire galaxy in my palms. 

And now the lines on this hand 
Blurry and scarred 
Nothing to bring you here 
Just left it all to let it go 

Scattered like diamonds 
Shimmer in the night sky 
Polaris winking brightly 
He leads me back to hope.

A spontaneous Sunday collaboration between me and my lovely friend @drearydaffodil. The ones in italics are mine and the rest by her. Well this was fun. She somehow managed to turn it into a positive one. 

Memories Remain

Day Five of Adrinette Month is Coffee Shop AU!!  This drabble takes place when our heros are in university. It assumes that Adrien never went to school with Marinette and her friends. While writing this, I listened to Coffee Shop by BAP, which I think fits pretty well. I hope you enjoy!

Also on AO3


Adrien didn’t mind the night shift. It was quiet. Generally only one or two customers came in during the late hours, and Adrien spent his spare time reading behind the counter. 

Tonight was no different. It was about midnight, and the only other person in the shop was one of his daytime shift regulars. She was a very pretty university student who lived nearby. Normally, she came by in the mornings for a caramel macchiato before class. They rarely spoke more than a few words to one another, but he always remembered her. She had long, black hair and big, bright blue eyes that reminded him of another girl that used to make his heart pound.

Assassin!Jungkook

Onto Jungkook, our sweet lil maknae I’m v v excited for this I’m loving this concept (also it’s almost my love’s birthday and I am s o ready for it I have shit planned and ready to go I’m so prepared)

  • Okay but Kook is lowkey the opposite of Jimin when it comes to this
  • Kook is what they call the “sudden strike”
  • Jimin takes his time to get to know everyone, find the best way to do it without causing a scene but Jungkook just cuts straight to the chase
  • Jimin really lures his hits into it, getting them to trust him before he goes for the kill but Kook’s hits never really see him before the night they’re assassinated
  • Okay okay but real quick, picture this
  • Assassin!kook wears the infamous black leather pants and boots

  • Like everyone around him is dressed up in suits and ties but he’s just got a nice shirt on and his favorite leather pants and his worn in boots and no one says anything about it bc he carries himself as if he’s wearing the finest suit ever made

  • He rarely goes to events (he does make sure to come to random ones just so people don't realize that whenever he shows up, someone “disappears”)
  • He normally spends the entire night secretly talking to his hit (he tries his best to make sure not too many people see him talking to them bc less witnesses = less pointed fingers)
  • He always finds a way to get them to leave the event, normally using the line of “let me walk you to your car, you never know what’s out there this late at night”
  • He’s definitely not as social as chim is so when you suddenly appear at one of the dinner parties, he’s not at all surprised bc he sees people come and go all the time
  • He is curious about you though bc you’re talking to one of the richest bank owners in the country so casually and that’s not an easy thing to do so he asks Jimin about you
  • Surprisingly even chim doesn’t really know anything about you, just your name and that you started showing up three weeks ago
  • He had to admit he thought you were pretty cute, you seemed close to his age which was rare in a room full of people who were all 40+
  • He went up to you after the dinner and just started talking to you, trying to use some of chim’s tactics in getting to know you better
  • He may have thrown in a few flirty lines here and there and you may have returned them
  • By the end of the night, he had your number saved and the promise of dinner on Friday
  • He somehow finds himself sneaking out onto date after date after date and the next thing he knows, he’s moving into an apartment with you
  • He does have to eventually tell the boys why he doesn’t stay over at the dorm as often and to his surprise, they’re actually pretty supportive
  • Their only advice is to not get too wrapped up into it bc he is an assassin after all and he has to be able to flee at any sign of someone catching onto their game
  • He can’t do that if he’s too busy being a lovesick puppy but he can’t help it bc you’re just slowly wrapping him around your finger
  • It isn’t until you two have been together for two years that he gets a call from Namjoon at 3 in the morning, your name coming out of the leader’s mouth
  • Kook just honestly feels sick to his stomach and is just like you have to be mistaken like no no n o p e I refuse to accept this
  • Unfortunately the person requested him specifically and they were offering up a lot of money for it  
  • In all the time you two have been together, waking up and falling asleep with each other every single night and day, you don’t know about his secret job and he doesn’t know about yours
  • Little does he know, you’re an assassin from an equally popular group and you’d just gotten a call from your own leader telling you someone was gonna pay a l o t of money to put a hit on Jungkook
  • Neither of you can really decline it without admitting the reason why
  • You’d both broken rule number one of “don’t fall in love” and it was a deadly rule to break
  • You decide it’s best just to leave him, to run, maybe change your hair, definitely change your name and just try to avoid having to assassinate your boyfriend bc not happening
  • Unfortunately, just as you’re packing up your weapons, he comes in to ask something about what movie you’d watch that night and then he just pauses
  • He doesn’t give any type of reaction and you’re just stood there frozen bc not only does he see a knife in your hand, he also sees you packing all of your things
  • He doesn’t make any move before he dives for his drawer (where he keeps his own weapons hidden)
  • You think he’s going for the phone on the nightstand so you immediately just have to grab him and try to hold him down while you’re frantically telling him you can explain
  • He manages to get the drawer open but then you look inside to see his stash of weapons and you’re just like uhm pardon excuse me??
  • You two have to sit down and admit that you’re both assassins and like you’re both lowkey upset the other kept such a huge secret but you also both understand why bc you did it too
  • He gets over it pretty quickly when he sees Namjoon calling him for a status report (kook had been stalling for an entire week and normally he had the job done within 24 hours so joon was h i g h l y suspicious) 
  • He just grabs the spare bag and starts packing bc we gotta go nOW
  • He doesn’t have enough time to actually say goodbye so he just calls Namjoon and gets him to put him on speaker so everyone can hear him explain he’s out
  • Much to lil maknae’s surprise, they all agree to help him and tell him they’ll meet him at the new city they’d call home with different names and hairstyles
  • It honestly warms his heart and he’s just so happy he doesn’t have to choose between you and them anymore and he agrees to send them updates
  • You all move into a different city ready to start a new life

  • “hm no reason???? it suits you, the word princess i love calling u that”

  • “shizzlepuff” “why are u calling me that” “it sounds fluffy just like you”
  • day off with wonwoo would consist of staying in bed til 12 and getting up only to laze on the couch and watch cartoons

Fire and Ice

I waited on the roof of the townhouse, what the hell was I thinking? When Cassian asked me on a date, I’m not sure which of us was more shocked when I replied yes. It wasn’t the first time he asked. Every other time he had asked me I had replied with some witty comeback, normally involving his balls.

I expected dinner, maybe a show or drinks, not some unknown fancy date that required a formal gown.

Though, I had to admit, Nuala and Cerridwen were phenomenal at what they did. I had never felt or looked so beautiful. The dress, was nothing like the dresses I had worn in the human realm. At first, I almost refused to wear it, I had spent years in corsets and this dress was more in line with the typical night court fashion Mor wore. It was Nuala that suggested I try the dress on, if I hated it, they would find a dress more to my liking. Now I stood in an open backed, ice silver dress, absolutely freezing.

anonymous asked:

ok so jungkook will always have a special place and his description of like what kind of day he is made me legit cry

honestly, that entire post made me legit cry, and even stronger for the members that have more of that special place like you said. 

I think my favorite line of his was, “Jeongguk is stargazing a spring night and being able to see every single star.”

absolutely beautiful in every sense of the word 

pocketeering  asked:

Happy anniversary you guys! In the spirit of things, how would the hosts celebrate their anniversary with their s/o?

Host Club: Headcanons

Tamaki: Tamaki would spend his anniversary in the sweetest way possible. Most likely, he’d want to take control of the date. He’d buy his significant other flowers (roses, probably) and surprise them with a dinner to their favorite restaurant. Afterwards, he’d play piano for his S/O to fall asleep to.

Kyoya: Like Tamaki, Kyoya would want to plan his anniversary date with his S/O. He’d take his lover to a fancy dinner followed by a rose maze or greenhouse, and they’d chat as they strolled down the rows of flowers.

Honey: Mitsukuni would spend his anniversary with his lover visiting all of the candy shops and bakeries in the area. They’d drive to one after the other after the other and pick up all sorts of sweet treats. Afterwards, they’d enjoy them together under a comfy blanket, having a Disney movie marathon.

Mori: Takashi would leave the planning to his significant other when it came to their anniversary. However, he would absolutely give his S/O a wonderful gift fitted to their taste. Depending on the person, he might give them a gorgeous watch, a delicious cake, etc.

Kaoru: Kaoru would spend his anniversary reenacting the first time he and his significant other met or their first date. This special day would be filled with nostalgia for the both of them; they’d likely sit at the bench they met at together and speak excitedly about their plans, and then go to the site of their first outing together (most likely a theme park of some kind). The night would end in the sweetest way possible: cuddling on the sofa. 

Hikaru: Hikaru would surprise his lover with a rooftop picnic. He’d spend the entire day making sandwiches and shopping for his S/O’s favorite snacks. Not only that, he’d line the rooftop with stunning fairy lights and put together a playlist of his significant other’s favorite songs. All in all, an amazing anniversary date.

Thank you so much!!

nitrogenous-baes  asked:

ALL of the dreamy asks (if you want ;w; )

gosh you’re so greedy :P

moon: A childhood book + your favorite line from it?

the book would have to be the underland chronicles, or more specifically marks of secret or code of claw. I can’t decide. I don’t really have a favorite line out of it? idk i’m going to reread again soon and i’ll update you if I remember.

stars: who’s someone you’d sleep on the stars with?

not entirely sure I understand the question? also sleeping on stars sounds really painful and deadly???? ( @naknakittynak though) 

sun: city night lights date or meadow picnic date (or both) and why? 

oooh. well they both sound super nice tbh? but I’d have to go with the city night lights. I think mostly just because  I would prefer it be at night anyways? and then… idk i feel like i’d like that ambiance more so than in a meadow? cars, buildings, music potentially 

comet: A movie/show/book that taught you something important you’ll never forget. 

yikes…. do i even have one? I’m not sure i’ve really internalized any lessons from books? at least not that I can think of off the top of my head.

Space Dust: Night rain or day rain? soft rain or thunderstorms?

depends on my mood mostly. Generally night rain over day rain. but as far as soft vs thunderstorms? either.

fairy lights: Soft candlelight or warm sunlight?

warm sunlight. I’m not a big fan of candlelight in all honesty? firelight is a bit better though.

meteor shower: favorite song to fall asleep to?

hmmm any songs with like, a chill tone to them? I really like most of echosmith’s songs when i’m trying to wind down and sleep

Vanilla twilight (hehe): If you wrote a ‘concept’ post about your dream future in your dream home what would it say?

A) I really like this song. B) Is this just asking what that concept is? or ??? i’m gonna say that’s what it is. 

I’d be in medium sized house living w my gf @naknakittynak Plenty of pets, including reptiles birds and mammals. nightly cuddles, and either a job teaching or researching. plus lots of travel

milky way: if you could go back in time where and when would you go to? why?

maybe venezuela before it got so terrible? maybe just to myself a couple years ago to tell myself that i really didn’t want the coast guard academy that much? who knows.

saltwater room: sunrise or sunset? do you like saying hello to the sun or moon more?

sUNSET. like ok, sunrise can be ok? but i dont really understand ppl that prefer it. it’s so much more… bland? the sunset is gorgeous though. and i like saying hi to the moon. i should only ever say bye to the sun.

dandelion wishes: what is one thing that always gives you hope?

my friends. so many of you guys are so strong and deal with shit way worse than i have? and like.. if you guys can do it, then i have no reason not to be able to.

also new scientific discoveries. like, those are really really cool! and it makes me happy to see like. oh look we’re progressing!

rose petals: where do you want to be the most in the world and why?

tbh anywhere but here? i’d like to get all my friends together and just hang out and watch movies and play games. listen to music have karaoke nights etc. but also somewhere warm. like, tropical warm. hawaii? puerto rico? any of the central american countries? hell yes.

floral: would you rather live underwater or in the sky? 

probably underwater. the sky would be really really cool, but limited. like oh yay a bird will fly by every once in a while??? but underwater theres so much more to discover, so many more things to see. and so much more activity.

contellations: what is your favorite unstrument to listen to? what is your favorite instrument to play (or that you want to play the most)?

already answered!

alright, i’m still waiting on you rresponses *glares @nitrogenous-baes*

Day 4 favorite scene

This list is nowhere near all of my favorite scenes, but these are memorable in my book.


Stripping for Smiles by @babycakesbriauna   the entire one shot of Rick stripping for Michonne to Gucci Mane and doing a horrible job at it was hilarious and adorable.

Crash into me by @dirtiebirdie17  Rick and Michonne date night complete with dancing together.

Jump on it by @cake-by-thepound  Michonne giving Rick a lap dance in front of all of their friends. My favorite lines were when Rosita says “Is it just me? Or are they basically having sex right now?” and Abraham says “You two are an inspiration”

The end and the beginning by @Rosepddle010   This scene of an old Rick and Michonne dying together surrounded by their children is so beautiful.

Queen of hearts by @mamagrimes6   When Negan sacrifices himself for Michonne, and the end when an adult Judith is talking about her family is full of feels.

I Been Dranking by @severelybabykryptonite   When a drunk Rick trips and falls on the floor and an equally drunk Michonne ‘checks him for injuries’. Also, when Michonne falls asleep right when they’re about to have sex.

Talk Dirty to Me by @pennylane714    The funniest line of all time is when a jealous Rick is watching Michonne and Daryl interact and he thinks “Stupid Daryl with his stupid cross-bow and stupid vest that makes all the women go nuts. Well I’m cool too! I got… a gun… and a hat. Fuck, no I don’t, I gave it to Carl. I got… pigs. Motherfucker, I’m pathetic.”

If there’s one thing I know, it’s that our souls have been star-crossed since the beginning of time, always separated by some breadth of space, never allowed to touch or to have.

But still I know that you are my reason to exist.

There is no greater love story than ours, the one that could take up more pages than the world has ink, and even then we would scribe who we are into those sheets of white with the dry nib, entrenching ourselves into those invisible lines.

We’re the only ones who deserve to read it anyway.

I would think it a sin, that being bound by the very same blood and bones would be enough to shatter the place in my chest where my heart belongs every time I look at you (but it’s not there, you see; it has always been yours).

And yet.

And yet the slip of your fingers between mine is my favorite prose, sweet words lifting from an ever-sweeter mouth that curls up at the sides and carves a dimple into your cheek.
I tried to hold back, to resign myself to my fate as brother (protector, caretaker, your entire life) and not ask for anything more, but that night the fireworks looked like stars and I could have sworn they spelled out our names.

So when your hand brushed my cheek and pulled me down to find you tracing love in cursive lines against the seam of my lips, I was already gone.

I resent every moment that existed before then, cursing the sand-filled hourglasses for stealing time that should have been spent with you being mine, me being yours.

I curse my past self for turning away from touches out of selfishness, out of a need to protect your fragile heart that deserves to be paired with someone, anyone, better than me, knowing how little I trusted my own hands that I was sure were tainted in putrid black.

But then you kissed me.

You kissed me and you took my hands in yours and you showed me how to turn those black fears into ink.
Together, we began to write ourselves into the sky, and there we will remain.

Ours is a book that will never burn.

You’re what I’ve been living for

It’s constellation night, when all Astro 101 kids go out to this huge field off campus to take their constellation quiz. It’s a cold November evening, but Katniss doesn’t mind, especially what with the beautiful sky of stars above her. She just wishes she had the foresight to bring something warm to dri-

“Hot cocoa?”

She turns around, and there he is, his blond tufts peeking out of his grey beanie, and his bright eyes somehow bluer in the moonlight. Eyes that she only really noticed that day…

Cookies for Santa. Bucky x Reader

Merry Ficmas to @canumoveyourseatup-no!!! I hope you love this as much as I loved writing it!
-Your Secret Santa
—————————–
Three years. Your little Elise was now three years old, and was finally getting excited about Christmas, but more specifically… Santa Claus. She loved getting her picture taken with him at the mall, and she made Bucky write her letter to Santa for her. This year, she was asking Santa for a kitchen like Mommy’s. She loved to watch you in the kitchen, for any reason: making dinner, washing dishes, and especially baking. In her letter to Santa, she is quoted to say “I will have even extra cookies for you. So please bring me a kitchen.” Her negotiation skills reminded you of her father’s. He was always trying to bribe you with kisses or soft touches.
When the time came on Christmas Eve Day to make the extra cookies, your daughter bounded into the kitchen, her own little apron hanging from her neck.

“I help too, Mama?”
“Of course, Pumpkin.” You tied her apron behind her back and she went to and fro, getting what ingredients that she could reach for you. Bucky would come in and leave kisses on the tops of his girls’ heads, and a squeeze to your backside for a little fun. Such a flirt. You spent longer than you intended, but that was part of having a toddler’s assistance, but once the fresh chocolate chip cookies were done, you washed up and Bucky took your babygirl into the living room to play. You watched from the kitchen as she pulled out her plastic food and pretended to cook a fancy dinner for her and Buck. You finished the last of the dishes and joined them to kick off the Christmas Eve fun.

“Elise,” you pulled a small box wrapped in silver Christmas paper out from behind the tree, “Do you want your Christmas pjs?” Elise’s cerulean eyes grew wide in her excitement, and her jaw dropped. She was such a Christmas kid!
“Yes please!” Bucky got up from off of the floor and joined you on the couch, carrying Elise over to sit her between the two of you. You set the box in her lap and she started to tear away at the paper. She lifted the lid to the box and pulled out her surprise. She, like her Uncle Stevie, had a love for Disney movies, so she was thrilled to pull out a purple nightgown, bearing the face of her favorite mermaid, Ariel. The nightgown was still special, because it was no ordinary Little Mermaid scene. No. The coral reefs in the design had strings of Christmas lights and garland on them! It was an underwater Christmas for the red haired mermaid. Elise looked it over, her smile growing bigger than you thought possible, and kicking her legs in her jitters.
“I wear it now, Mama? Pease?”
“Sure thing! Come on,” you picked her up to set her on your hip, “We’ll go change and Daddy can put the movie in for us. How’s that sound?” Elise giggled her approval all the way up the stairs to her room.

While you were upstairs with Elise, Bucky’s heart was so full. Every day, he thinks it couldn’t be any fuller, but he’s proven wrong every time. Today was no different. With the smell of his favorite kind of cookies wafting around him, he slunk back to the kitchen to sneak a bite. He was going to eat them anyways, so why not…?
“Stay away from those cookies, James Barnes!” He heard you holler from upstairs. He rolled his eyes and whined to himself, pulling away from the pastries. He sauntered his way back into the living room. He knelt down and pulled open the entertainment center to grab A Charlie Brown Christmas on DVD. The menu screen was coming on when he heard little thumping footsteps coming back down the stairs. He peaked over his shoulder from his seat on the couch to see Elise’s dark hair swirling around her, the purple fleece nightgown stopping just above her little toes. You followed behind, wearing leggings and Bucky’s red henley’s. You gave him a knowing look when you noticed his bottom lip trapped between his teeth. You were playing dirty, knowing how he felt about seeing you in his shirts. His thoughts were brought back to reality when Elise crawled up into his lap.
“Movie time, Daddy.” She nestled herself into Buck’s chest. You smoothed your hand through his hair when you walked behind the couch to sit on the other side of him. You smiled over to him to tell him that everyone was all set, so he hit play on the remote, sighing into his seat when the movie started.

Even in the shortness of the film, Elise was asleep. Her little cheeks were smashed as she rested on her dad, making her dark lashes fan out along her fair skin. You had an arm resting along the back of the couch, reaching your fingers to twirl through the ends of Bucky’s hair and massaging the back of his neck. Once the film was over, Bucky scooped Elise up into his arms and you followed along to take her to bed. As she settled into her blankets, she peeled her eyes open with a small smirk.
“”The cookies,” she murmured, “Santa’s cookies.”
“Don’t worry, Ellie.” Bucky assured her. “Mama and I will make sure to put extra ones out for him. Okay?” She nodded into her pillow.
“Don’t forget the milk.”
“Oh, I won’t! Don’t worry.” You chuckled, knowing that this was Bucky’s favorite snack of the entire year. You knelt down to kiss Ellie’s forehead.

“Go to sleep, Pumpkin. Santa can’t come until you’re asleep, okay?”
“Night, Mama.”
“Goodnight, baby.”
“Night, Daddy.”
“Goodnight, sweetheart.” Buck kissed her forehead and tucked her blankets in around her body, and switched on her night light. He took your hand and led you back out into the hall, shutting Elise’s door about halfway before heading back downstairs.

Bucky shut off the main lights, allowing the room to glow from the Christmas tree and garland lights that lined the stairway. He stopped you by wrapping his hands around your waist and nuzzled his nose into the crook of your neck. You could feel his warm breath skirting across your skin, making you shiver and sigh.
“We have to get the cookies, Buck.” You tried to shimmy out of his grasp, but the metal plates of his arm began to whir as his grip tightened a bit more.
“Those can wait, Mrs Barnes.” He kissed that sweet spot behind your ear, his lips curling into a smile. “You’re wearing a very specific shirt, dear wife. I wonder where ever did you get it?”
“I think you know very well where I got it, Sarge.” Bucky groaned his approval, but whined when you finally slipped from his arms, a playful smirk on your lips. Buck’s eyes were darker now, and he stalked behind you as you went into the kitchen to plate up Santa’s extra cookies. You innocently looked over to the soldier and nodded towards the fridge. “Will you be a dear and pour Santa a glass of cold milk?” He nodded shortly and peeked into the fridge.
“And what for the Missus?”
“I think she’d love a glass of wine.”
“As you wish.”

You dished up the fresh cookies and settled on the couch with Bucky, wine in hand. Bucky had to fight back the pleased moan in his chest when he bit into the first cookie.
“God, babe. These are amazing. You get better every year, I swear.” You laughed quietly and sipped from your glass, keeping a keen ear on any noises from upstairs. Don’t need Daddy getting caught while eating Santa’s extra cookies! You indulged yourself as well on your creations, understanding Bucky’s delight when the chocolate melted in your mouth. You were getting better, for sure. Things were quiet for about an hour. Not a sound came from upstairs, telling your that Elise was out for the night. You glanced at the clock: 9:30pm. You couldn’t help the yawn that came from you, making Buck raise a brow at you.

“You’re already tired? Seriously?”
“Apparently,” you ran your hand over your face, “I just know that she’s gonna be up early. So it makes me tired.” Bucky took your now empty glass from your hand and walked it to the sink, leaving it for tomorrow. When he came back, you situated the empty cookie plate and empty milk glass on the coffee table, keeping the Santa appearance. Buck started to rub at the base your neck and shoulders and kissed into your hair.
“Maybe Santa could drop off presents early this year and get to bed for some much needed relaxation?” You hummed in approval and stood up to walk with Bucky to the closet in the back porch. Behind the winter coats and boots, there were two white trash bags, containing the wrapped presents. One bag had Eli’s presents and the other had the gifts that you and Bucky had gotten for each other. You set up a nice pile for Elise and then nestled Buck’s presents to one side, while he set yours on the other side. You stood before your tree, hands on your hips as you scanned over the scene. Everything was neat and symmetrical, just the way you liked it. Elise’s new toy kitchen was at the back of the pile, since it was the biggest. Bucky returned to his place behind you with his hands on your waist.

“Come on up to bed. It’s closer to 10:30 now.” He pressed his lips to your temple as he whispered. “A little elf told me that you have been particularly good this year, Mrs Barnes.” You quirked an eyebrow at him and intertwined your fingers in with his before stepping down on the floor switch to turn off all of the lights. You let your eyes adjust to the dark and pulled Bucky along up the stairs to your bedroom for a long winter’s nap.

What dating Kyungsoo (D.O) would be like:

– “Let that boy test me one more time.”

– “Kyungsoo no

– Kyungsoo’s always singing Musiq Soulchild to you and you just love it.

– He’s so full of comforting hugs and gentle words that no one expect it from him and they’re just like ??? but you’re just like (-:

– He’s oddly always got sweets baked up and you’re not sure where he got the time but every time you’re like, “I’m hungry,” Kyungsoo’s there with a bowl of cookies. 

– Helping him dress himself in the mornings that he’s home because he trusts your sense of fashion judgement over his own and Baekhyun’s whos always trying to actively dress Kyungsoo up. 

– Saving Baekhyun every time Kyungsoo’s like an inch from swinging. 

– Comparing hand sizes. 

– Horror movies where you’re scared completely cold and Kyungsoo’s just there with this tiny little smile. 

–  Dealing with his victory screech every time they win an award.

– Secretly a proud mom but he always tells you not to embarrass him but it’s like ??YoU DO thaT Ur sELf??

– Squeezing his cheeks at inappropriate times.

– Tell me what is love is your anthem.

– On vacations you’re like “Hey can I get that?” n he’s like, “Hyung?” and Suho just hands over his credit card.

– Encouraging his rap career.

– Spending all of the hours of the days draped on the couch in the vocal room and he spends the entire time trying to fix his voice and it’s sorta depressing. 

– Encouraging pep talks when his voice cracks and he gets this distressed look on his face. 

– Trying to cook a surprise dinner for him but when he gets home it’s a big mess and he just looks you dead in the eye like, “Why were you in my kitchen?”

– It’s Kyungsoo’s kitchen. 

– Also his favorite place for late night sex.

– Also the couch. Apparently the bedroom is too overrated to him.

– Being there the entire time Jongin’s teaching him a dance and he looks so pained and again you’re depressed. 

– Running over his lines for his drama with him all night until it’s perfect.

– Pretty much never sleeping because Kyungsoo’s a whiny child that requires constant encouragement and attention but you don’t really mind. 

– Waking up in the mornings to his slightly reddened skin and puffy lips and waking him up by pressing your lips to his just to feel him. 

– His morning voice.

– Heart aches when you watch his fancams and he gets startled by the confetti cannons because you know the child just almost died.

– Kyungsoo taking the day off on your birthday without you knowing and you come home to just a plain white box in his hands and you’re scared thinking it’s Baekhyun’s head but when he takes the top off, a tiny puppy pokes his head out and you’re in tears.

–  Kyungsoo spending hours learning love songs in different languages so he can surprise you with a song in a language you don’t understand but you’re still in awe at him. 

– Doing anything to make him smile because when he does it’s like sunshine and rainbows.

– Weird art and pottery classes together.

– People always question you how you two get along so well when he never talks and you just shrug with a dumb grin on your face.

– Kyungsoo’s a gentle soul with like no emotion but he really doesn’t need his facial expression to express it because you already know by the way he’ll change his lock screen and home screen to you every time you post a new selfie. Or they way you just kind of look at something in a shop window and it’ll be on the dresser the next day. You never really can figure out how he has the time to go back and get it between all of his activities but you don’t question it because he just looks so humbled by the happy expression on your face.

Definitive Ranking of Book 2 Episodes, #13/13

13. Night of a Thousand Stars

Tonraq: “we can’t wait for reinforcements any longer.” Nuktuk premiere! Jinora’s mostly dead. Varrick is uncovered. Raiko: “no…that’s just what they’ll be expecting us to do.” Short term memory lost for dramaz. A boat hot potatoes an entire plotline. Tonraq vs. Unalaq.

(kudos to @apfeljunge666​ for guessing correctly first)

I’ll admit; I’m just as surprised as you are that this list does not begin with the warm milk of the “Civil Wars” episodes, or the wheel-spinning, Korra-less “The Sting.” But “Night of a Thousand Stars” is pretty obviously one of those “let’s move the plot” episodes. Which I guess isn’t that awful in and of itself, but this episode accomplishes that aim with contrivances, illogic, and I’m sorry to say, sexism.

Look, Bryan and Mike are amazingly reflective writers, and in fact LoK is quite a unique show in that  they bent over backwards to deliberately deconstruct the aspects of their narrative that were most problematic. Or sometimes just the most hackneyed. Situated in the pattern of this show—the pattern of this season too, which was the season where this deconstruction took place—missteps are forgivable. But there, nonetheless.

Still, let’s keep the party polite and start with the narrative contortions this episode had to do. We begin with Tonraq on a cliffside overlooking the Southern Water Tribe (SWT) saying, and I quote: “We can’t wait any longer. It’s time to take back what is ours! It’s time to take back our city!”

Okay, first of all let’s ignore the fact that Unalaq is literally the chief of both tribes at this point (and has been for the past umpteen years), so what exactly are they taking back? Was the point that Tonraq should be chief because he found out about Unalaq’s treachery?  Because even if their father had a missing data set, Tonraq was still banned for the consequences of his own damn actions.

I KNOW PLACES - CHAPTER 14

The sweet aroma of syrup wafts through the room, penetrating my heavy woven blanket, currently pulled over my head. If it were up to me, I would not be vacating my bed this morning. The stress of last night’s fallen barricade and my narrow escape to the car was still weighing heavily on my mind.  I snuggle further into the downy pillow, as the blanket rubs against my face, tickling my cheek.  The tent I’d created having sunk in, creating a waiting game to see how long before the oxygen ran out and I was forced to emerge from my warm cocoon.

I feel the mattress momentarily sink down, presumably from the weight of Josh, as he climbs back into bed.  He peeks underneath the blanket, only half his face visible to me.

So you mean to tell me that the 4 main Liars were just supporting characters in Alison’s story line the WHOLE ENTIRE TIME?

-They had absolutely nothing to do with That Night.

-They never did anything to Charlotte directly.

Then there’s:

A’s Motive: Because those bitches were happy Ali was gone. 

and A’s Favorite: Mona Vanderwaal, who was happier (by far) that Ali was gone (more than any of the other 4 Liars combined), but still ended up being A’s “favorite”. Makes sense.

So uh, why did we need Aria, Spencer, Hanna, or Emily at all? Way to tie them into the plot - - NOT.

Mar should have just stolen one of our amazingly thought-out and detailed theories. Everything would have been A-OK (pun intended).

A week later, and I’m still so mad lol.

Kuddos to the fandom. You guys are wonderful, and I love ya’ll so much. 

We deserved better than this.

Theory

Did anyone else stop to think that maybe they knew before they even released FOUR? That they wrote that album to try to tell us it was going to be Goodbye for Zayn? I mean if you look at each song individually they are messages disguised in love songs so that we wouldn’t know right away.

1. Steal My Girl~ this was a song they used as their single to distract us from looking too far into the other songs, everyone was so worried about “Why did they pick the least favorite song on the album as their single” instead of realizing it was a distraction

2. Ready to Run~ That kinda explains itself, “this time I’m ready to run, escape from the city and follow the sun” its pretty obvious

3. Where do broken Hearts Go~ this one is for us, this is their song trying to guide our broken hearts to a better place, trying to tell us it’s going to be okay

4. Night Changes~ sure this one is masked entirely like a love song but at the same time if you read between the lines it is all about how things can change so quickly from one day to the next, just over night, just like it happened one day we thought he was going to be around still and the next he was gone

5. Stockholm Syndrome~ this song is all about feeling trapped, being trapped but not necessarily wanting to be let go either and in my opinion this line that Louis sings, I feel is clearly about Zayn “Used to sing about being free, but now he’s changed his mind” 

6. Change your Ticket~ this one is all about wanting to change someone’s ticket and wanting them to stay longer, I think it speaks for itself

7. I almost forgot this one, but SPACES!~ “Whose gonna be the first to say Goodbye” that explains itself as well.

You may not agree with me and you don’t have to but I honestly think they knew before FOUR, I honestly think if we look even further back that they could have even planned this from the beginning, it could have been part of Zayn’s contract that he only go for 5 years and then be released and they use a personal excuse as his way out and something so simple would make a big deal, they could be planning that he be off for a few months to a year and then they make him a solo artist because “He had his break and can’t return to One Direction but he still wants to be a musician” My point is I believe that they could have known this from the moment they were signed after XFactor and if they didn’t know back then, they probably knew this was going to happen before they wrote and released FOUR.

all of your glory (i just need you as a whole)

[oLYMPICS AU — lexa likes riding bikes rly fast, clarke was her physio & now they’re just in love.]

//

it’s not like being a physical therapist who works with a lot of athletes is ever bad, or lacking in very attractive, very fit people, but when alexandria woods, cyclist extraordinaire, shakes your hand, you really, really thank whatever god is up there (beyonce, probably) for your job.

‘i’m dr. griffin,’ you say, and lexa nods. she’s wearing glasses and her hair is pulled into a bun, a little greasy, and she looks generally miserable, which you can understand — she had a nasty pelvic fracture in her last race, had surgery, and is now sitting in your rehab gym.

‘lexa,’ she says, even though you both know you’re entirely aware who she is — you’ve seen her in gatorade commercials, and nike commercials, and even kotex commercials, and you try really hard not to blush when you remember her espn body issue spread from last year.

but lexa is scowling at the ground, sitting up a little slumped and slouched on the table in front of you, her team usa sweater slightly crooked on her shoulder, and she’s, well, cute. and grumpy, you think, if her tired sigh is anything to go by when you explain her exercises for the day. you try to hide a smile because you’re sure that she would never whine during training, but she is certainly whining a little now.

but then — ‘you smell much better than my previous physio,’ she says, and when you look up from her hip, you catch her smiling, just a small one, and it’s easy, really, really easy, to return it.

‘dr. sanders?’ you ask.

she nods. ‘a nice man,’ she offers diplomatically, and he was your mentor, so that’s fair, ‘but he always smelled like icy hot.’

you laugh. ‘true on both accounts.’

she props herself up on her elbows instead of just lying down, even though she’s supposed to keep still, but you can’t care enough to argue, just for a moment, because you really want to see her eyes. ‘i can’t find it in myself to mind that i’ve been assigned to your service.’

you hope that you’re not blushing, but you can’t be sure. bellamy looks over for a moment, having possibly heard that, but you don’t dare meet his eyes — you’ll be busted for sure then.

lexa’s eyes roam down, for a moment, to the dip in your scrub top, then she meets your eyes before lying back with what you think is maybe a bit of a blush of her own. she keeps whining and resists one of the positions you try to get her in for a light stretch — probably because it hurts, but you’re sure she won’t want to admit that so readily — and you say, ‘i can’t find it in myself to mind either.’

Apollo leaned back in his golden throne with his shades on. He had iPod headphones on, so I wasn’t sure he was even listening, but he gave me a thumbs-up.

Finally!! The day is here and the @pjocoloringbookproject has been released! meaning i can finally post my colored piece for it!! Page 83 of 215!!!!

I got Apollo as my character to draw and so I chose my favorite Apollo scene from The Titan’s Curse when the gods were voting on whether or not to kill Percy. i know i didn’t add the shades cuz i thought it looked better without. feel free to add them if you wish!!!!!

I was so happy I got my first choice character i drew my line work immediately that night. So i’ve been sitting on this for a while lol. The entire project from start to finish was run so well so big thank you to the two people who organized this whole thing!! 

Hi taylorswift !

This is my wall my mom helped me decorate with all of your Polaroids from 1989!Yesterday by the help of God, you, and my mom; I took a huge step in my life.I let go of the pain/drama/hurt/whirlwind of emotions from a past relationship of 8 years(since I was a freshman in high school) . In the middle of the wall there’s a paper that says my favorite line of your entire 1989 album; “I think I’m finally clean”. When I first heard Clean I was far from it; every little thing seemed to somehow connect back to him; and it dragged me down.the other night I was reading your interview in Elle about the song and was just completely encouraged once again by your music to move on and create new memories to replace the old ones;I finally understand that the past does not have to/will not weigh me down anymore.Yesterday for the first time in MONTHS; i was finally clean; and I truly do hope the best for him, but it’s times to move on with my life and see what God has in store for me. Thank you so much for your encouragement taylorswift love you so much and see you in October in Arlington! taylorswift

Love your fellow meerkat,
Bexx :)
