Book review: Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman

He has sipped the mead of poetry, conversed with Mimir, and cavorted with norns. There are no other rational explanations, because otherwise Neil Gaiman might actually - secretly - be a god himself, and I can only suspend my disbelief so far.

It isn’t difficult to argue that Norse myth is easy to present as a continuous story. Much of that reputation is the fault of Snorri Sturluson, the Icelandic poet and politician, who committed a selection of stories (known as sagas) to paper and codified what we now collectively refer to as the Nordic mythos. Retellings of these sagas are rare - you’re more likely to find translations of Sturluson’s work - and it is for that reason that this book is so special.

Gaiman brings his wit and strong character writing, as well as his unashamed love of the mysterious, to an enormously entertaining retelling of his favourite mythological universe. I should mention now: this mythos happens to by my favourite, too - so I’m perhaps, maybe, possibly 100% biased in favour of this book from the very beginning. Speaking of the beginning, that’s precisely where we start: a vibrant, expansive and imagery-rich opening sequence covering the life and death of the giant Ymir and the formation of the nine worlds.

From such lofty heights of literary prose one would, probably, if they were a pessimist, suspect that the writing would necessarily take a quality dip as more characters and events are introduced to the story. I am pleased to report that this is not the case - pleased because this has happened, previously, with other works on the same topic. Grand prose has a habit of giving way to the rote. Gaiman manages to strike the perfect balance between intellectual interest and joyous storytelling. His fiction background, naturally, has helped with this task enormously. 

Best of all are the characterisations of the gods themselves. Thor is a bounty of hard-headed brashness and implacable optimism…when he has Mjollnir, anyway. Odin is a wise and steadfast figure, if perhaps prone to his own brand of trickery. Freya is an unashamed feminist, constantly berating the Aesir for their unthinking folly. Loki is a proud and egotistical problem-solver with delusions of grandeur. Each character, be they god or elf or dwarf or giant (or eagle or wolf or snake) are presented with unique character traits and mannerisms. And to top it off, these gods do not speak in thees and thous: instead, Gaiman treats the gods as if they were real people with extraordinary abilities and responsibilities, and they speak accordingly.

Gaiman collects the best known stories and a few lesser, harder to research myths, and presents them as one cohesive story with an ease that Sturluson couldn’t possibly have dreamed of, and which few academics have replicated. From the beginning to the Ragnarok, the reader is completely transported.

@neil-gaiman has given the world an incredible gift, and we are not worthy.

Should I buy this book? Yes, a thousand times yes.
What do you rate it? 5/5 stars.
Favourite part? Every single time Freya snaps at Loki.

I wanna talk more about maia and magnus’ friendship:

- magnus is always teaching maia some of his own alcoholic creations he’s mixed over the years so maia can add them to the menu at hunters moon so that no other bar in the area can compete with the specialty drinks they’ve made. (magnus likes to tell her that he invented all the popular cocktails but maia just shoots him that look of “I know you’re lying but sure”)

- they totally have hour long conversations about the bachelor/bachelorette, discussing who they think should be given a rose and who should be booted out. they get super passionate about their favourites and always shout at the tv while they’re settled in magnus’ loft, eating takeout and sipping on margaritas

- maia loves reading so magnus let’s her borrow books from his library that contains every genre you could think of. for maia’s birthday, magnus gifts her a first edition book of jane eyre because he knows it’s her all time fave

- maia always takes magnus out for coffee at least once a week so they can catch up and she can tell him about all the crazy things that happened at the bar that week, how she had to break up a fight between two vampires, how some drunk seelie tried hitting on her and ended up vomiting on her shoes. magnus finds it all hilarious.

- maia is super worried when she finds out magnus has a shadowhunter boyfriend because she doesn’t want magnus getting hurt and she wishes all the happiness in the world for magnus so she’s very cautious when she first meets alec until she sees the look he gives magnus, one with such adoration and love, a look she’s often seen in magnus’ eye when he talks about his boyfriend and maia feels this huge sense of relief because magnus is truly happy and out of everyone she knows, magnus deserves love and happiness the most

- maia loves jewellery, not as much as magnus does but she’s always wearing gorgeous necklaces and rings which magnus always compliments. so they always get little gifts for each other. maia gives magnus a small black box at the bar one day containing a silver spiderweb ear cuff which maia claimed it was something she thought he’d like. maia comes round for dinner at the loft and get given a beautiful sapphire ring that magnus saw on his trip to Italy and tells her “something so beautiful must be worn by someone equally as beautiful” and maia just laughs.

- maia is a really giggly drunk which causes magnus to be a giggly drunk too seeing as maia’s laugh is so infectious. they were watching a tv show they usually love but lost interest and as magnus got up to get another drink, he stumbled and fell into the book shelf and stands there shocked “a book just fell on my head, maia” and maia giggles and says “I guess you only have yourshelf to blame”. they laugh over that pun for 20 minutes which is how alec found them, tears streaming down their face while they struggle to tell him what their finding funny without breaking into another laughing fit.

Neil Gaiman/Terry Pratchett’s “Good Omens” and the evidence that Destiel has always been real

I don’t know how many of you are fans of Neil Gaiman, but I’m sure you know how much the general idea for “Supernatural” and its plotlines was inspired by Neil Gaiman’s works. Like, his Lucifer is literally based on David Bowie (so yeah, Lucifer is a glam rockstar deep down); Tessa the Reaper looks a lot like Death from Sandman; Cain is a prominent character there; Abaddon’s look is suspiciously similar to WAR from “Good Omens”, SPN’s Death looks a bit like Famine in the same book - practically the whole Apocalypse in season 4-5 is based on the plot of that book. Sandman starts with a bunch of people summoning Death. And so on, and so on.

So, beware, because I will spoiler the shit out of “Good Omens”, but I would like to show you how I believe they always were very deliberate with Destiel from very early in the show. 

The two main characters in “Good Omens” are demon named Crowley (yes, our Crowley inherited his name) and an angel Aziraphale. They met in the Garden of Eden, where Aziraphale was practically Gadreel, guarding the gate, and Crowley was the snake. Unexpectedly, they became frenemies, and now, six millenia later, they are best friends officially, but most of the time they seem more like a very unusual married couple.

Crowley likes well-taylored leather jackets, wearing shades inside, and to drive his super cool, old black car. Most days he pretends that he is more of a badass than he actually is - demons don’t really respect you if you don’t show them your tough, smooth-talking facade - but mostly he would just like to travel, walk through a park, feed ducks, eat good food, drink wine, and talk for hours, with the angel Aziraphale - instead of doing evil hell business, ever. 

The cool image is everything in hell, but once his angel is in trouble, our demon has no problem running into flaming buildings, screaming his name like a crazy person, and falling apart when his angel seems to demise.

Crowley also listens only to “Best of Queen” while driving, because somehow all his tapes turn into the classic rock album when left in his car for longer than a fortnight (you think Dean has a similar problem, and all of his Taylor Swift tapes turn into AC/DC?) He has a soft spot for pot-plants, a nice apartment downtown, and he generally just wants a quiet life with his angel, far from the heaven or hell business.


Aziraphale is a badass angel when he needs to be, handling flaming swords and such, but on everyday basis he is an old-book lover who owns a little second-hand book shop in London. This beautiful description of him says it all really:

“Many people, meeting Aziraphale for the first time, formed three impressions: that he was English, that he was intelligent, and that he was gayer than a tree full of monkeys on nitrous oxide. Two of these were wrong; Heaven is not in England, whatever certain poets may have thought, and angels are sexless unless they really want to make an effort. But he was intelligent. And it was an angelic intelligence which, while not being particularly higher than human intelligence, is much broader and has the advantage of having thousands of years of practice.”

Yeah, except for the English part, this could be Cas. 

Aziraphale is the one who seems more gay in this odd couple, but Crowley definitely seems to be more openly emotional about his angel. When Armaggedon started to unfold, and everything seemed to go to hell (not literally, but almost), it is Crowley who calls Aziraphale a lot, and gets hurt when the angel doesn’t answer, or seems too busy to talk; it is Crowley who eventually loses his angel and tries to find him for several chapters, showing great emotional distress. Again, SOMEONE WE KNOW???

AND THROUGHOUT THIS WHOLE BOOK EVERYTHING IN THEIR EMOTIONAL STORYLINE STAYS IN THE SUBTEXT. Neil Gaiman said that it’s up to his readers to decide if the relationship is romantic or not - he only said it probably wasn’t sexual since angels and demons (ex-angels) are sexless. But you know, “unless they really want to make an effort”, so who knows? Anyway, we got a green light from the authors to ship them as husbands, so we do.

This has been, for the longest time, my biggest Destiel anchor in the sea of gaslighting from the cast and crew. Because Eric Kripke is A FAN OF THIS BOOK TO THE POINT THAT HE STOLE SEVERAL STORYLINES FROM IT. And the rest of the writers are too - the Megatron/Metatron joke in season 7 is also from it! And the whole Nephilim storyline.

You are not telling me that when you base your TV show on a book with a subtextual romance between an asexual angel and a guy in a cool, old, black car who pretends to be cooler than he is, and somehow your TV show seems to have a subtextual romance between an asexual angel and a guy in a cool, old, black car who pretends to be cooler than he is, IT’S A FREAKIN’ ACCIDENT! Because you know, accidents don’t happen accidentally.

I am POSITIVE they decided that Destiel was real the moment they realised Misha is not going anywhere, but they put it in the subtext for safety, and because that’s what Kripke saw in his favourite book. And no one will ever tell me it hasn’t been there since as early as the end of season 4. So, yeah.

Tomorrow: “Good Omens” and the Nephillim. Because the new writing crew are also fans of the book.

Milkshake | A Valentine’s Day One Shot

I know it’s a day early but here we have one in which Harry fucks up because I hate Valentine’s Day and we don’t need any extra sappy-ness, ok? It’s hard enough being permanently single without having a special day to rub it in my face.

“Date night Tuesday, yeah? For Valentine’s Day?” Harry says as you lie your head on his chest. There’s a show on the telly at the end of the bed but neither of you are really paying attention, more interested in the whispered conversation you’re having. He’s been home for a while but soon he’ll be gone again and you wish you could keep him by your side like this forever so he could never leave. But Gucci clothes don’t buy themselves, do they? Oh but yes they do, you reason, when they’re sent to him for free.

“Gotta be seen to be wearing ‘em, makes everyone money,” he justifies with a small giggle.

“Yeah but I still don’t understand why they give the free stuff to the very people who can afford to pay for it? This is how rich people stay rich, you know? They don’t have to buy anything for themselves. I read that Lady GaGa got given a £10k place to stay for the Super Bowl for free by Air BnB, I mean, what the fuck?”

“Are you saying you don’t like the dress YSL sent you?”

“That is completely beside the point, Harry. Entirely. I can’t afford it, you can.”

“Oh, of course, sorry, I forgot you can’t afford anything with your multi-millionaire fiancé,” he rolls his eyes.

“Nope. What’s yours is yours until you get that ring on my finger,” you tease.

“Still think we should skip the big wedding and jus’ go t’ Vegas.”

“Your mother would kill us both,” you laugh. “And why Vegas, of all places? Could go anywhere in the world on our own and you choose Vegas?”

“When we’re in LA sometime…quick flight to Vegas, married an hour later, done.”

“Gosh, remember when I thought you were romantic?”

Hi there! ^_^ Do you have any favourite Zutara fics or authors?

I actually haven’t read Zutara fic in a while so some of these recs are probably pretty old but sure! Some of my favorites:

Multi-chapter fics:

Fire and Ice by LadyAvatar: Unfortunately incomplete, but still worth the read imo. It takes place in Book 2 right after “The Chase” after Azula injures Iroh. It explores the idea of what might have happened if Zuko and Iroh had joined the Gaang after that. 

Water Wedding by Atiaran: A post-series AU. Zuko and Katara are engaged and are heading back to the Southern Water Tribe to get married there before they have their Fire Nation wedding. It shows Zuko having to adapt to Water Tribe customs which is refreshing, since it’s usually the other way around. 

The Black Games by Mrs Pettyfer: A Zutara Hunger Games AU. I highly recommend reading this even if you aren’t familiar with the THG series. There’s A LOT of sad character deaths though so be prepared to cry. It also has two sequels. 

Too Cold For You Here by Like A Dove: Post series. Zuko is in need of a powerful Fire Lady and Azula takes it upon herself to play matchmaker. There’s also some surprising Zuko/Azula sibling feels in this fic too. Pretty funny, it made me laugh a few times. 

Half Asleep by The Crushinator: Post series. Zuko gets placed in a coma by an assassin’s dart. Katara is trying to find a way to get him to wake up. I didn’t expect to like this fic since Zuko is in a coma for most of it but he’s still very much present in flashbacks and in some of Katara’s visions/dreams. Very good!

Finding What You Weren’t Looking For by JackieStarSister: Incomplete unfortunately but suuuuuper long and definitely worth the read. It’s basically a complete series re-write with a Zutara romance, starting in book 1 after “The Water Scroll” episode. It also has Taang and Sukka. 

One Shots:

Teardrops of the Moon by Mrs Pettyfer: Post series. Zuko and Katara write each other letters after she goes back to the Southern Water Tribe. 

Sunrise by araeph: Takes place during book 3 right after Zuko and Iroh’s reunion. They have a conversation about Katara. There’s also a companion piece called Moonrise which is Katara and Iroh talking about Zuko. 

Hope I managed to rec you something that you haven’t read yet :)


Request: ‘Can you do a Jughead x Reader request where the reader is always flirting with Jug and everyone but him notices it. And then towards the end he asks them if they were flirting with him and they say something like “well it’s about damn time you noticed.” I love you xxx’ (Thanks for the request girly, it’s probably not 100% what you had in mind but I hope you like it xx)

Pairing: Jughead x Reader

Warnings: None, just some fluff to brighten your day x

Word Count: 2263

For someone so smart you’d like to think Jughead Jones would be able to pick up on the basic human interaction of flirting, for some reason it just didn’t seem to register with him.

 Y/N had been trying for months now to no avail. It all started the day she realised she had deeper feelings for the dark haired boy, rather than just a platonic friendship. She could recall the exact moment with spectacular clarity.

 It was before the Twilight drive-ins closed, he had asked her (as well as the rest of the gang) to come down and watch Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. She remembered him calling it a ‘cinematic masterpiece’ and how we would all be missing out on ‘one of the greatest films of our time’ if we didn’t attend. She remembered the way his eyes got excited when he talked about it, they lit up the same way when he would find a new piece of information for his novel or when she would tell him how proud she was to be friends with such a talented writer.

 It was when they were all sitting in the back of the Kevin Kellers truck; she was seated next to Jughead who was staring intently at the screen literally mouthing every word that came out of the characters mouths. She remembered looking up at his face, which was illuminated by the white light of the screen, that seeing him so happy made her feel things that she hadn’t quite registered before, it was in that moment she had first realized her true feelings of affection for Jughead Jones, and it had plagued her every since.

 Fast forward a couple of months and Y/N had tried her very best to flirt with him, to try and show her interest. She would find any excuse to talk to him, she was so interested in anything he had to say, and her subtle laser focus would find him straight away in any room.

 And despite her best efforts she always got flustered around him, especially when he would occasionally tuck the free falling pieces of hair behind her ear when she didn’t notice (this was something he had always done, but she was only just starting to overanalyze it now).

 The unfortunate thing was, however, that he never seemed to reciprocate it or even notice that she was ‘flirting’, he was always so casual with every interaction they had. While her heart rate would be going a million miles per hour his would seemingly be steady and calm. It was getting to the point where she was ready to give up, and where she was starting to accept that a friendship would be all she would get.

 That was until the day Veronica Lodge, a very good friend of Y/N’s, insisted on having a ‘girl talk’ session after school on a Friday. The two girls sat in a red cushioned booth in the warm homey atmosphere of Pop’s Choc-lit-shoppe, a popular hangout for the teens of Riverdale.

 “Look Y/N, I’ve been watching your attempts at flirting with Holden Caulfield for a while now and I’m just going to be straight with you” the Raven-haired girl started. “Jughead is smart yes, nobody is denying his genius with the written word, however girl, you really need to just ask the boy out, I can tell what your intentions with him are but unfortunately sometimes boys just need it given to them plain and simple”.

 Y/N knew deep down that Veronica was right, she was just way too nervous to be so bold as to ask him out. “Ronnie, how the hell do I ask him out though, I mean what if he says no and I loose him completely” Y/N replied now fiddling with the straw of her strawberry milkshake nervously.

 Veronica gave the Y/H/C haired girl a soft smile, “I’ve said this to Betty and now I’ll say the same to you” she cleared her throat “Slay your dragons Y/N Y/L/N, don’t live your life with what if’s, you’ll never be happy until you know for sure”.

severusnapers  asked:

top 5 of your favourite snape moments? :)

This is a very nice ask :D I am going by the books:

1. When he revealed himself as being the Half-Blood Prince, in the Flight of the Prince chapter. It was so badass.

2. Again in Half-Blood Prince, in the Sectumsempra chapter, when Snape saves Draco Malfoy and then comes back to talk to Harry about what just happened, with the whole passage of Roonil Wazlib. It was so funny.

3. In Order of the Phoenix, in the Fight and Flight chapter, when Umbridge calls him to her office, so he could give her Veritasserum to interogate Harry. Harry tries to pass him a message about Sirius, and Snape has to pretend he doesn’t understand. My favorite part is “Crabbe, loosen your hold a little. If Longbottom suffocates, it will mean a lot of tedious paperwork,and I am afraid I shall have to mention it on your reference if ever you apply for a job.” So much sarcasm in one sentence.

4. I think here I will choose one of the first Snape moments, in Philosopher’s Stone. When Snape was saving Harry’s life during the Quidditch match, and later when he insisted to referee the match to protect him, although everyone just thought he wanted to make sure the Gryffindor team loses.

5. In Goblet of Fire, at the very end, in the chapter The Parting of the Ways, when Dumbledore sends Snape to start his double-agent mission and meet Voldemort for the first time since he first disappeared. It was a little moment, and Harry did not understand it, but I think it was very powerful. 

“Severus,” said Dumbledore, turning to Snape, “you know what I must ask you to do. If you are ready … if you are prepared …”
“I am,” said Snape.
He looked slightly paler than usual, and his cold, black eyes glittered strangely.

 Special mention to The Prince’s Tale chapter, which is my favorite chapter of the books :) 

So I haven’t done a book rec in a while and I’ve been reading all kinds of wonderful books lately so I thought I’d do a real quick one for you now. They are all inclusive of either lgbt rep*, characters of colour**, disability rep***, mental illness rep****, or all four, but you’ll be able to tell by the symbol. I’m gonna bold my favourites for you as well. (Inspired by @whiteguilt‘s book rec format)

If any of these books are offensive to you or have triggers in them that you would like me to forewarn people about please tell me. you can also add to this

tell me again how a crush should feel by sara farizan */ **
This is genuinely one of the best books I have ever read. Not only does it have a lesbian muslim main character, but it also gives you an insight into just how flipping hard it is to come out to your parents when you can’t predict what their reactions might be. 
TW: secondary character going through stages of grief. It has been pointed out to me that the antagonist falls under the “abusive cheating bi” stereotype and and that could be harmful to readers

a quiet kind of thunder by sara barnard */ ***
Wow there are a lot of authors called Sara on this list. Anyway. I waited for the release of this book for about sixteen months. I was so excited for it and it lived up to every single one of my out of this world expectations. For starters one of the main characters is a deaf MOC with a heart of absolute gold. I adopted him immediately. He is now my son. Then there’s the other main, a girl with selective mutism. So already you have more disability rep than half of the YA books I’ve ever read put together. Couple that with the insanely well written narrative and you’ve got yourself a winner!!

the sun is also a star by nicola yoon **
I’m only like four chapters in but so for I’m loving it. It features a jamaican-american female main and a korean-american male main which should give you some indication of how awesome this book is already.

london belongs to us by sarra manning */ **
WOC protagonist who traipses all over london to find her dickwad of a boyfriend. I feel like I spent most of this book in pain from either laughing or smiling too hard. 

the upside of unrequited by becky albertalli */ **
Oh my gosh where do I begin? There are so many positive messages in this book, especially about body image, love, and looking beyond the surface. The main also has an interracial family with two mums. Don’t listen to that crusty old book blogger who gave it a two star. She’s very very wrong.

looking for derek by n.c. nest *
Two boys meet, fall in love, and are separated after one of them acts like a complete knob jockey. It has a happy ending, I promise
TW: homophobia (from secondary characters), threats, and death of a minor character

what happens at christmas by jay northcote *
Suuuuuuuper nsfw!!!! I wouldn’t call this YA at all. But it’s on the list bc fake dating!!!! And also my favourite friends to lovers trope!!!
TW: mild homophobia 

game on by olley white *
I can’t actually remember who recommended this to me, but it’s pretty cute. More fluff than anything else, but it has a cute ending and sequel.

cinderella boy by kristina meister *
I read this one on tapas so I’m not sure whether it’s available elsewhere or for download, but as far as lgbtqa+ books go it’s honestly wonderful. There are so many different genders and sexualities represented including a pansexual character and a gender fluid character

the miseducation of cameron post by emily m. danforth *
A beautiful lesbian protagonist who faces shitheap after shitheap and still manages to remain open, hopeful, and loving despite having been put through hell by her “family”. I’m not going to lie to you; at times its hard to read. It’s heartbreaking, then funny, then heartbreaking all over again. For any of you who have grown up with catholic parents or have been sent to a catholic school like I have, you will understand.

you against me by jenny downham
Ok this book is not for everyone. It certainly isn’t for you if you are triggered by sexual assault or revenge plots. However, if you think that you will be ok to read it, just know that it deals with some pretty heavy stuff and you might need to put it down now and again and have a break. Like I said, it isn’t for everyone and thats ok, but I’m including it because it changed the way I think about a lot of scenarios and it made me question whether I was always getting the whole story out of people.
TW: sexual assault, revenge plots, humiliation, revenge dating

two boys kissing by david levithan & you know me well by david leviathan *
The first is about exactly what you think its about; you guessed it, two boys kissing. There’s a really good message to it. The second is about women loving women, finding yourself, and having a damn good time. They’re both gay as hell.

Forsaken: UK Shadowhunters Con Recap

Hi all! So I went to Forsaken this weekend, if you don’t know what that is, it was a Shadowhunters con in London with Maxim Roy (Jocelyn), Jon Cor (Hodge), Kaitlyn Leeb (Camille) and Joel Labelle (Alaric).

It was so much fun, and since it was their first con/they’re not the main cast it was so small, nice and chill. They were all so down to earth, humbled and overwhelmed that we came to see/speak to them. They each had two panels (one on each day) and a full guest panel, I’ve managed to write up most of what I can remember below. Obviously there’s a lot I haven’t captured, but highlights/best moments are under the cut!

A lot of things we discussed were personal/non-Shadowhunter related, if you just want to read the bits to do with the show, just read the bits that have been bolded.

Fitting after I go through a really depressive phase because of parents ha ha ha ha haaaaaaaaa okay so let’s jump into our favourite pork cutlet bowl

  • Yuuri has an undoubtedly close relationship with his sister. His senior debut was spectacular and he had dedicated the entire season to skating for her. 
  • He had his first anxiety attack when he was 14. He was desperately trying to keep up with school and skating and family and what he wanted to do with his life after skating was over and everything just came crashing down while he was in a lesson with his tutor and Mari had to take him off to the side for him to even remember how to breathe. He thought he was dying. 
  • Yuuri obviously was hooked up with Phichit back in Detroit, however, he only had one girlfriend in his life. It didn’t end well, in fact, it ended awfully - and so when Viktor brought it up it up it didn’t settle with him well either. 
  • Once he and Viktor start to live together, Viktor absolutely relishes the boy while he’s wearing his glasses. Yuri’s the type to read before going to sleep - book on the nightstand and all - and sometimes his fiance will just move over and just start leaving kisses across his face. He’d even rub his nose against the glasses to smudge them while telling him “come to sleep” and Yuuri would just tut and clean the lenses because god damn it Viktor every time. 
  • He starts to learn Russian at a young age, but drops it because he isn’t good with Cyrillic. However, once he moves to Russia, he ends up learning it quicker and easier than the average person; he’s best learning languages while he’s in the element. Another example of this would be how much his English improved after living in Detroit. 
  • Yuuri would sometimes like to take Yura to little trips - just the two of them - to some place they’ve been to half a dozen times already. Just so that way they can talk and learn more about each other in a civilized manner and maintain a good relationship. Yura never would admit to it in public, and he prefers to keep it more on the secret side; however, he always looked forward to those little trips with Katsudon. Sometime’s he’d bring his homework, sometimes Yuuri would bring a book that he wanted the teenager to read. They have quite a bond over books now. 
  • His favourite book is “Mary Poppins.” It’s so simple and pure and good and he just loves something that can make him feel so many things at once while being so innocent. 
  • Sometimes, he’ll just forget words. Not because language barriers or anything, it happens when he’s speaking in Japanese too - it’ll always be something so easy to remember but he forgets there’s actually a string of sounds that form this phrase and he just uses the closes synonyms. Even when he figures out the word, it doesn’t look right so he just questions its existence until it doesn’t exist anymore.  
    “Mari, can you pass me the bottle of liquid ice?”
    “….you mean water?”
    “….that doesn’t sound right.”
  • Many believe that Otabek is the one that rarely uses social media, but it’s not the case. It’s really Yuuri. Well, he has them, but he’s practically never on. He’s not even verified and when he does release the occasional tweet something along the lines of “having some #wine with @viktornikiforov and having a #blast~” or the rare photo on Instagram of his skates with the caption “#practice,” the whole skating community just kinda loses their shit. 
  • Yuuri gets more confident in his body because of Viktor. Mostly it was in moments right before they make love (because let’s face it Viktuuri is so vanilla and other than the every so often light bondage and blindfolding they aren’t really kinky) where Viktor is just kissing all up and down his thighs and telling him how beautiful he looks and how incredible he should feel in his skin that over time he becomes more and more happy to walk around without worrying about his body. Some days are worse than others, but Viktor makes sure to let the love of his life know that he is the most beautiful thing…and eventually, Yuuri doesn’t need to be told anymore. He just knows. 
Lucifer 2x17 Spoilers (What broke me)

Amenadiel demands from Lucifer to get off his ring as he believes it’s the Key. Apparently, the book says that God entrusted the last piece to his favourite son.

But something happens…

It’s Amenadie’s necklace that interacts with the assembled blade and buckle. 

“Is that the key around your neck or are you happy to see me?” Lucifer voice is low and full of disbelief. 

And this is the last scene of the episode. This is what broke me. 

So why is it so important? Lucifer once said that Father at least doesn’t pretend to love him but he always calls himself God’s favourite. It’s his only thread of that Dad did love him perhaps. Then everything crumbles. He was never the favourite. Amenadiel was. It’s one more betrayal from Dad. One more joke at his expense. Lucifer feels like he has been subjected to mind games while Amenadiel seems delighted by the discovery. And so his world is falling apart again. His past was always something he never discussed but seemed to feel somewhat good about the fact he was the favourite.Now he discovers that even that was not true. I bet he now feels that he was expendable. Perhaps even the least esteemed of all of them. 

amistillfeeling  asked:

B! B! RAE!

I knew someone was going to ask :P

  • who hogs the duvet: 
    RAVEN. She is a notorious blanket hog! She is actually the worst, especially if it’s cold. BB has threatened to buy a new blanket if she doesn’t learn to share. Now, he’ll force cuddle because at least this way, he still gets some covers. (Also, spooning <3)
  • who texts/rings to check how their day is going:
    Beast Boy. Raven is more likely to text, but BB will call. He loves hearing her voice, and, so help him if he hears something’s happened, her phone rings immediately. 
  • who’s the most creative when it comes to gifts:
    Raven. She is super meticulous about what to get him because she wants him to LOVE it. She spends a lot of time doing research (aka, asking Vic, snooping around his social media, etc).
  • who gets up first in the morning:
    Raven. She’s an early riser and often likes to meditate on the roof as the sun is rising. BB is a night owl and usually stays up late binging shows/movies/games.
  • who suggests new things in bed:
    Mostly Raven, but she does ask BB about his ideas. They need to both be comfortable with it, otherwise it’s a no go. 
  • who cries at movies:
    BB. Raven is way more composed with her emotions, for obvious reasons. However, there’s a certain movie about a certain dog she won’t name that had her come pretty damn close. 
  • who gives unprompted massages:
    Beast Boy; any excuse to touch her, and nine times out of ten, it leads to sex.
  • who fusses over the other when they’re sick
    They both do. Raven is way more subtle. Beast Boy will dote on her; make her soup, tea, get her her favourite book, etc. Raven merely gets super overprotective, as whenever BB gets sick, it’s usually from a super strong bug. So he’s literally almost dying. She doesn’t leave his side when he’s sleeping, and when he’s awake, everything is somehow there and ready for him. 
  • who gets jealous easiest:
    Both. Beast Boy and Raven both feel as if they are out of each other’s league, and are often easily intimidated by other potential love interests, especially if they happen to fall into their said ‘types’.
  • who has the most embarrassing taste in music:
    Beast Boy. He listens to every genre. Everything. Even the stupid stuff if it’s funny. Rae is a bit more particular. 
  • who collects something unusual:
    They both do. BB likes to collect some sort of memorbilia from every epic showdown the Titans have (even something as simple as a piece of concrete from the building Plasmus crashed). Raven will collect strange flowers/plants and dry them in books before framing them. 
  • who takes the longest to get ready:
    Beast Boy when they’re going out somewhere nice. If it’s for a fight/emergency, Raven takes longer. Leotards are not easy. 
  • who is the most tidy and organised:
    Raven. She’s not exactly a neat freak, but she likes organization because it makes finding things easier.
  • who gets most excited about the holidays:
    Beast Boy. He gets them couple costumes for Halloween every year, and one Christmas, when he was Santa, Raven dressed up as his little sexy helper. He hadn’t expected it and nearly fainted. 
  • who is the big spoon/little spoon:
    As mentioned in the cover hogging, BB is the big spoon because, otherwise, Raven will steal all the blankets. It never lasts if he’s the little spoon. 
  • who gets most competitive when playing games and/or sports:
    Surprisingly, Raven. She rage quits a lot. Sometimes, BB lets her win. It isn’t worth her feeling all down and glum for the rest of the night.
  • who starts the most arguments:
    Raven. Have you met her? She’s a bit of a grouch. She lightens up eventually, but I do feel like Rae would be argumentative with anyone she dated.  
  • who suggests that they buy a pet:
    BEAST BOY. Rae cannot even begin to explain the amount of times he’s given her the whole ‘it followed me home’ spiel. 
  • what couple traditions they have: No matter what, they always spend New Years together. Once a week, they have a game night and a show/movie binge night. Every Sunday, they go out for a nice breakfast.
  • what tv shows they watch together:
    GoT, most anime, anything sci-fi/magic related, Gordon Ramsey cooking shows.
  • what other couple they hang out with: Usually Rob/Star and Cy/whoever he’s dating at the time. 
  • how they spend time together as a couple: 
    They’ll go out for dinner and a movie, sometimes a trip to the park if it’s nice, and have a small picnic. When they’re at home, they’re perfectly comfortable in one another’s company. Whether it’s cuddling under the covers while watching horror movies, or Raven reading while BB catches up on comic books, they simply like being around one another. Eventually, they do some travelling. 
  • who made the first move:
    Raven. It was hard, but BB is pretty oblivious, so she definitely kisses him first. Plus, this is how it went down in the comics, too.
  • who brings flowers home:
    Beast Boy. He likes being a sappy romantic, and Rae won’t admit it, but she likes it, too.
  • who is the best cook:
    Probably Beast Boy. If it weren’t for him and Vic, that girl would be living off cup noodles. She burns everything she touches. BB can cook, even non vegetarian dishes. He’d just prefer not to handle the meat. His desserts are actually pretty delicious, though.

52: I think I’m in love with you and that scares me half to death.

You were sat in Zenyatta’s lap, head rested against his chest and in complete comfort. You loved the feeling of floating just above the ground and he loved to please you and so this was regularly how you spent your time together. You were re-reading one of your favourite books, getting lost in the story as one of Zen’s hands lazily ran through your hair. For an omnic you were luckily with just how affectionate he really was.

Then the…unexpected happened.

“I think I’m in love with you and that scares me half to death.”

Zenyatta’s voice cut through your book like a knife and snapped you out of the story instantly. You looked up at him, processing the words he had just said as you did. You didn’t realise, however, that you looking at him blankly did not give him the right impression of what you were thinking.

“Of course, if you don’t feel the same-” he began to ramble, “then that’s perfectly okay. That just came out and it doesn’t have to mean anything if you aren’t ready for that yet I mean-”

“I love you too.”

You cut him off, a grin spreading across your face, wider and wider as you realised that you truly did love this wonderful being in front of you. You heard him hum in contentment before him hand came up to stroke your head again.

“Well that is fortunate.” He murmured and your giggle that followed bubbled up from your very soul, making him happier than he thought he had ever been.
