They say that people come into our lives for a reason, to help us live and grow, and we help them in return. I’m not sure if it’s true, but whatever way our stories end, even if we never meet again, I’ll cherish the memories we had and keep them close to my heart. My story wouldn’t be the same without you.

The signs as love quotes

Aries: “Maybe in my black and white world, you were the only thing that was gray.”

Taurus: “If you fall, I’ll pick you up, if not, I will lay down with you.”

Gemini: “We loved with a love that was more than love.”

Cancer: “One of the most amazing feelings in the world is having someone fall in love with you who you thought you never had a chance with.”

Leo: “I like when you smile, but I love it when I’m the reason.”

Virgo: “My only mission is to make you happy.”

Libra: “You know it’s love when all you want is that person to be happy, even if you’re not part of their happiness.”

Scorpio: “When two people are meant for each other, no time is too long, no distance is too far, and nobody can keep them apart.”

Sagittarius: “I bet not even all the fireworks in the world can light up my world like you do.”

Capricorn: “I would love you in any shape, in any world, with any past. Never doubt that.”

Aquarius: “I feel like I could love you forever, and that scares the shit out of me.”

Pisces: “You are the first thing I think of every morning, the last thing that stays on my mind every night.”

Newt crouches on the floor. Credence looks to him, the tiniest trace of hope dawning in his expression: Might there be a way back?

LISTEN UP AND LET ME TELL YOU WHY I’M EMOTIONAL ABOUT THIS.

FOR ONE, WHEN NEWT CROUCHES ON THE FLOOR HE GETS ON THE SAME LEVEL, ON EYE LEVEL WITH CREDENCE. HE DOESN’T TALK DOWN TO HIM OR BELITTLES HIM OR GIVES HIM THE FEELING HE’S AN AUTHORITY OR IN ANY WAY IN THE POSITION OF POWER. THIS IS IMPORTANT. CREDENCE HAS SPENT HIS LIFE BEING SURROUNDED BY PEOPLE WHO LET HIM KNOW JUST HOW POWERLESS HE WAS. WHAT KIND OF FREAK HE WAS. ALSO, THIS WAY OF SLOW CROUCHING IS A THING WE OFTEN DO WHEN TRYING TO APPROACH A FRIGHTENED ANIMAL IN ORDER NOT TO SCARE IT AWAY. MANY SMALL ANIMALS ARE AFRAID OF GIANTS LIKE US. SO. NEWT IS TOTALLY USING HIS MAGIZOOLOGIST SKILLS HERE, DON’T TELL ME OTHERWISE.

TWO, NEWT HAPPENS TO BE THE FIRST CHARACTER IN THE ENTIRE MOVIE (AND PROBABLY CREDENCE’S LIFE TBH) TO ACTUALLY ASK CREDENCE IF IT’S OKAY TO COME NEAR HIM. HE ACTUALLY GIVES HIM A CHOICE. NO ONE ELSE HAS DONE THIS. GRINDELGRAVES CONTROLLED HIM THROUGHOUT THE MOVIE AND NEVER ONCE ASKED FOR CREDENCE’S CONSENT FOR LITERALLY ANYTHING. THE FALSE AFFECTIONATE TOUCHES CREDENCE RECEIVED WERE ALWAYS TIED TO CONDITIONS. NEVER ONCE HAS CREDENCE BEEN ASKED SO TRUELY AND SINCERELY, “IS THIS OKAY FOR YOU? CAN I DO THIS?”

JUST SCRAPE ME OFF THE FLOOR TBH

i’ll never be your mother’s favourite

Request: “Love your writing!! Can you write a Shawn imagine about him being nervous about meeting your family for the first time and he ends up feeling sick the whole way there but you tell him to just relax and it’s just nerves but once you get there later that night he just continues to feel worse and worse and ends up falling really ill and you feel bad for him and take care of him?? And maybe he’s embarrassed about being sick at your parents house??“

Pairing: Shawn Mendes x reader/female character
Rating: General audience

John Mayer is playing softly on the radio as they speed past the trees on the side of the highway. Shawn buttons and unbuttons the top button of his shirt in the side view mirror for what feels like the hundredth time. They’re getting closer to her parents’ house and he can feel his stomach turn at the thought of standing in front of them for the first time. He looks hesitantly at the tie in his clammy palms every few seconds.

“Do I have to wear the tie?” he groans. “I feel like I’m already in danger of asphyxiation with this shirt collar.” 

“If I have to wear this dress, you have to wear that tie,” she says, eyeing the piece of silk in his lap. “Besides, it was your idea.” She receives nothing but a pitiful expression in response. “Fine,” she gives in. “But you’re helping me out of this damn thing when we get back home.” She rolls her eyes when she sees the smug smile on his face. “Not like that! This dress is tight as hell and I’m going to need help taking it off.”

“Oh, so no sex?” Shawn smirks at her. She smiles and shakes her head as she puts on the blinker and turns onto a smaller road.

If you fight like a married couple, talk like best friends, flirt like first loves, and protect each other like siblings, then it’s meant to be. X

secretlybasictrash  asked:

So I've finally finished my first draft of my story!! This is my first time ever completing a first draft, so now that I'm done, I have no idea how to tackle it and begin editing. There are lots of things I need to change, like making the characterization consistent, brushing up on the flow of the story, adding in a few plot points, etc. There's just so much to do! Do you have any advice for where to start?

First, I always tell myself: One step at a time.

Don’t worry about adding plot points, or changing characters, or checking the flow, or anything. Don’t worry at all. You’ll only get anxious trying to “fix” every little detail. So, for now, celebrate. You’ve completed a draft. You are awesome!

I advise you to give yourself a reward.

I also advise you not to start editing right away. Take a week off. Start thinking about your next book. Maybe, outline your next book. For just a while, forget your completed draft. I’ve heard of authors that let their drafts in waiting for months. But a week is good enough. Why is this important? Because you move away from the story. You forget about details. You give yourself time switch from creative mode to critique mode. 

So, your week is gone and you are ready to edit.

But, remember, one step at a time.

First read: Read like a reader, not an author. Read all the way to the end without risking out or adding a word. Read like it’s someone else’s novel, not yours. And, when you get to the end, write a review. Just a paragraph or two giving your honest opinion on highlights and downfalls of the book. Be 100% honest. Be ruthless. Now, you have a general view over the story, what is missing, what is awesome. Make a list of every improvement you’d like to make.

Second read: Go over the story, applying the improvements, and also correcting mistakes along the way.

Third read: Read out loud. Reading out loud helps you detect grammar mistakes and strange sentences. :D   

Fourth read: Read one last time, not so focused on correcting mistakes, but on logic… pay attention for continuity errors, timeline errors, of if there’s any Deus ex machina around… this is just one last read to wrap things up.    

Fifth read: This is optional, but I love to read random pages of my books, just to force the brain not to follow the same track it’s already used to. Sometimes I find mistakes where I’d usually just brush over.

Then, publish it. It can’t be perfect, so don’t get crazy over every little phrase or word of choice. 

Publish. Open a new document. And start a new book. :D  

anonymous asked:

    • they keep doing it once adrien is just as well versed in audio equipment as nino is
  • nino geeks out over adrien’s camera
