first-taste

In Profile: Kaitlyn

Spitfire. Traitor. Experimental. Wild. Call her anything you want and she won’t care. The truth is she is all that and none of that at all.

For most of her life, Kaitlyn felt held back. Hartfeld was her first real taste of finally being able to be nothing but herself. Who she was she wasn’t 100% sure, but she did know it wasn’t the girl back in Texas.

As the quarters pass, she feels more and more like who she is supposed to be. She’s building traction, starting with spilling out her feelings for her suitemate. Coming out in Hartfeld. Coming out to Arjun. Coming out to her parents. Dealing with her father’s rejection. Reveling in her father’s acceptance. Wanting to do something adventurous. Approaching the pretty girl in art class. Singing on-stage for the first time. Joining the band. Changing her look. And now, breaking away to do things her way.

Kaitlyn is on fire. She knows it. She hates that her friends don’t see it. She hates that her friends think she’s being consumed by the fire, not fueled by it.

The key to understanding Kaitlyn? Let her be.

She’s the type who needs to push things to the extreme to learn her lesson. She doesn’t touch a drop of alcohol today because of the extreme amounts of liquid courage she thought she needed back in Fall Quarter. This will be a pattern.

Imagine being stunted for almost 19 years – compressing feelings, bound by traditional expectations. Then in just three quarters you’re able to free all this out. Spontaneous combustion. Boom.

So let her be.

Because Kaitlyn’s the type who will push, and push, and push the boundaries. That’s what fuels the fire in her. That’s what makes her Kaitlyn. She may burn or burn out, but she’ll push anyway. It’s your choice whether you want to see her through or not.

Fire girl. Free spirit. Wild child. Femme Fatale. Call her anything you want and she won’t care. The truth is she is all that and none of that at all. Not yet anyway. She still doesn’t know for sure.

Without or without you, she’ll continue walking on fire.

hi! i hope you don't mind this question, but as someone who's loved each and every quote you used on your fifty days of laurel lance edits, im super curious- were there any quotes that you loved, or wanted to use, but never got around to, or just could never work out a way of doing? im just wondering, but i'd love to read them, because youve got brilliant taste!!

First off, thank you anon! I was really proud of myself for managing to actually make all of those gifsets. 

Secondly, there are a ton. My likes is mostly full of quotes that I’ve set aside for gifsets of various natures, most of them related to Laurel if I’m completely honest. As for a few of them that almost made it but didn’t, my favorites are:

  • “She walked like the Greek goddesses he had grown up reading about. With natural confidence, earned confidence. She walked like the stars would rearrange themselves in the night sky just to tell stories of the tragedies she had transformed into successes.”
  • “When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about. “
  • “The loneliest people are the kindest. The saddest people smile the brightest. The most damaged people are the wisest. All because they do not wish to see anyone else suffer the way they do.” 
  • “I am trying to find myself
    in all of the chaos,
    find something that I can call me
    inside the screams and inside
    the ‘you shoulds’ and ‘you have to be’s.’”
  • “Have some fire. Be unstoppable. Be a force of nature. Be better than anyone here, and don’t give a damn what anyone thinks.” 
  • “I like messy people; people who don’t fit in a box or stay between the lines, but whose integrity is greater than any rule book and whose loyalty is stronger than blood.”
  • “Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.” 

There are also some other quotes I have set aside for Laurel/Black Siren gifsets that I haven’t the faintest idea of how to manage and those are:

  • “This is the story of how I never stopped running.
    This is the story of how,
    when the wolves knocked,
    I met them at the door
    and I became the beast, instead.”
  • “ You have to become the monster to make the monster go away. “
  • “Make me the villain, fine. Turn me into the evil queen, the heartless bitch, but never forget, you wrote this story.”

There are many more, but these are a few of my favorites that I always take the time to look at when contemplating making a gifset. One day I will use them. I hope.

I love every taako

Edward Elric and his bad taste

Their first kiss tastes like salt.

Rather than kiss, it’s more lips brushing LOL

While most people imagine TeruMob first kiss would be happy and cute, I imagine they would cry because their feelings finally become mutual. Or, I just want to draw them cry. /what 

Wonderwall (1/4)

[AU: We were high school rivals. Now it’s our 20 year reunion and I think you’re absurdly good looking and very charming. Shoutout to @shefollowedfires for her beta skills.]

on Ao3

Abby looked around the room, her eyes scanning the crowd of late 30 somethings gathered at tables and crowded at the bar. The last few bars of a Gin Blossoms song faded out, quickly replaced by the opening notes of Alanis Morissette’s “Ironic.” The corners of her mouth tugged up slightly.

“See?” Callie said, smiling at Abby over the rim of her wine glass. “You’re having fun already.”

She raised her eyebrow.

“This song makes me feel nostalgic. I wouldn’t exactly call that having fun.”

“C’mon, Abby,” Callie said, nudging Abby with her shoulder, “there are cheap drinks, good music and you’re in great company.” She smiled widely before she took a long sip of her drink. “Plus, this is the easiest place for you to break your streak.”

Abby sighed.

“Not this again.”

Callie set down her drink.

“Abby, you’ve been in this self-imposed celibacy for three years. It’s time. Consider this your opportunity put yourself back out there.”

Abby shook her head as she gestured to the throng of people around the room.

“How is this the place to jump back in? Everyone was basically married at the ten year reunion.”

Callie huffed in disbelief.

“Yeah, and now it’s been ten more years. I can basically guarantee you that more than half of those people are divorced.” She picked up her glass and took a drink before continuing. “Actually, I can guarantee it because I Facebook stalked everyone who rsvp’d yes to the Facebook invite.”
