Day 7

Imagine Being The Volturi’s Secretary

For My Followers

Part 1

Signing up for a shady secretary job is one thing but said shady job actually being offered by vampires is another thing.

You’re not a skeptic and you’ve never exactly valued your own life very much so you took the job.

You quickly find out that the Volturi value your life about as much you do.

~~~

“Your job here is to organize the schedule, pass messages onto the masters, welcome us as we come in, say farewell as we leave, do anything we ask, and collect the mail. You are not to open any mail you must pass it onto the masters. You are not to interrupt when the doors are closed, and you are not to divulge the secret. You can continue living your life in town but you’ll find you won’t have time to return to your social life. You will call members of the guard sir or ma'am and the three kings master,” the tall beefy guard explains as he leads me through the old castle. His name is Demetri and he seems annoyed at being given the task to play tour guide.

“Yes sir,” you reply. He grunts and leads you to a nice mahogany desk.

“This is your desk,” he says and gestures for you to sit. You nod and sit down at the desk. There’s a set of pens and pencils on the desk in a straight line and a mac computer. You fold your hands and look up politely at your red eyed boss. “You are to be here at seven sharp every morning and you leave at three unless instructed otherwise. You may have days off if you request them a week in advance. Any questions?”

“None sir,” you answer politely and smile. Demetri rolls his eyes and stalks away. Once the blonde vampire no longer watches you scribble down all the rules he said and place them in the top desk drawer.

You may not value your life but you value work ethic.

So begins your first day as the Volturi secretary.

~~~

You quickly learn names and abilities of all the guard except who don’t seem that bad at all. Of course they’re all horribly frightening and don’t care for you at all but they aren’t rude.

You’re good at your job and you assure to follow all the rules laid out. Even though your job is easy you never slack off in your free time. To keep busy you start hand making a calendar for the Volturi. Each month has a guard member or two sketched out on it while the three kings stand as the cover.

Your main task is organizing fake tours for Heidi to lead so the Volturi can eat without suspicion being raised. Though the screams haunt your dreams you manage to stop flinching every time a tour comes through.

Other jobs include scheduling trials for vampires who’ve broken laws, planning parties, handing on letters, sending gifts to friends of the Volturi, and anything else that is asked of you. Once you had to learn how to fishtail braid so you could braid Jane’s hair.

Overall you’re not happy, you ever are, but you don’t hate your job. The pay is nice and it keeps you busy.

~~~

“(Y/N)!” Jane snaps and you instantly bounce to attention. The blonde vampire is storming up to your desk with a murderous look on her face.

“Yes ma'am?”

“A trial is scheduled for the day of my and Alec’s birthday!” she hisses. “We were supposed to have a ball.” Jane is furious and looks ready to kill.

“I’m sorr-”

“I know it wasn’t you! You keep track of the birthdays ritualistically.” It’s true you have all the birthdays written down and you always plan something if the particular vampire cares about their birthday. “I want to know who told you to put a trial over it!”

Jane is glaring viciously and her hands are clenched.

“Mr Demetri requested it,” you answer calmly.

“I’m going to rip his head off,” she growls. “Thanks.” You’re stunned, none f then has ever shifted blame from you to another member of the guard, and no one has ever said thanks.

“Your welcome but ma'am, is the fault not mine?” you ask curiously.

“It’s not because I know you were ordered explicitly to follow all orders. I also know Demetri is mad because I stole his favorite cloak,” Jane replies curtly and then storms off.

You wonder silently if they’ve started to like you.

~~~

“Dear (Y/N) I wonder if you could help me choose a table cloth for Jane and Alec’s party?” Aro inquires with a sickly sweetness. He called you into the throne room for this express reason apparently.

“Yes I can master,” you say and walk forward. Your heels click on the granite floor loudly, too loudly.

“Never wear heels again (Y/N) they are intolerable,” Caius demands.

“Ah but sweet (Y/N) looks so delicious in heels,” Aro muses. “Felix, and Heidi certainly think so.” The referred vamps immediately hiss and scowl. You feel your face heat up in betrayal to your mind.

“How can they stand the sound?” Caius mutters but everyone disregards him.

“Oh hush brother. Now (Y/N) tell me which table cloth is best?”

You choose the red one which pleases Jane and Alec.

On your way out you purposefully take light steps to cushion the sound.

“Aro this girl has been here for months when will we kill her?”

“Caius we also discussed turning her.”

“We always say we’ll turn them but we never do.”

“This one is different.”

~~~

“(Y/N) will you come to our party?” Alec asks suddenly appearing behind you. You squeak in surprise and whip around to find Jane and him looking at you expectantly.

“If you request I come then I shall sir. Unless I’m indisposed,” you reply nicely.

“What do you mean? What could possibly make you unavailable. You have nothing to do outside this job,” Jane remarks bluntly.

“Ma'am the only way I would miss your party is if I was dead. In my line of work I understand that my death could occur at any moment.”

Jane and Alec both stare in shock and then a certain emotion you couldn’t figure out.

Before you know it Jane grabs your arm in a bruising grip and roughly pulls you to the throne room.

So it’s finally happening, your death.

SOFT ROSY HUES - MAKEUP TUTORIAL

I get a ton of requests for Bridal and Bridesmaid makeup looks, and I’ve done a couple of Bridal looks in the past already.
Although this is perfect for Bridesmaids, it’s also a great daytime makeup for when you want to look glamorous but not too heavily made up.

Rosy hues go with a lot of outfits, and many Weddings are based around Pinks as a theme. The shades I’ve used for this particular makeup would suit anything as it’s quite neutral, not too warm and not too cool.

If you would like to see a tutorial on the hair please let me know

General Advice

  • try your best. not everyone can get all As, and getting all As does not make you better than everyone else. just do the best you can and be the best person you can be.

  • don’t sleep in class! i know it seems so so tempting but slept my way through geography last year and i got a C in my exam instead of the expected A so…

  • Don’t tick off your teacher, follow the rules to an extent, get to class on time, respect your classmates and teachers. you know, just be a decent person.

  • be positive!!! and not just for the first week or so, keep the positivity going throughout the whole school year. if you don’t believe in yourself then why should anyone else?

  • “you can do it, wildcat, i believe in u” — something troy bolton said one time probably definitely

  • Smile and introduce yourself to people- whether you’re sitting next to them or have seen them in more than one of your classes. Everyone likes to make new friends (even if we’re too shy to do it most of the time).

  • Find which clubs look interesting and go to their first meetings- there’s never an obligation to join, but you might meet a lot of new friends.

  • Get advice from other students on if your classes/teachers are difficult and figure out which ones you’ll need to work the hardest in.

  • this or this. it’ll whip your ass into gear. you name a list of websites that distract you, set a timer, and bam. no more hour long study breaks. the best - or worst - part is, it can’t be undone by the application, by deleting the application, or by restarting the computer. you just gotta wait, and if you’re going to wait, you may as well study.

  • goals. when you sit down to study, write down everything you’re going to do. then do it. aimlessly staring at your books won’t do shit.

  • something to listen to. i suggest movie scores, song covers by the vitamin string quartet

  • a queue. if you’re really obsessed with keeping your blog up to date, set aside some time, fatten up your queue, and let your blog run itself for a few days.

  • breaks. during your breaks, dance, run around, work out, go for a walk, talk to your friends, call your mom. going back on the internet is an easy way to get out of the mood, so i wouldn’t suggest it.

  • tea and coffee - if not for the caffeine, then for the feeling of cozying up with your text books and feeling studious.

  • a place to study. it doesn’t matter if it’s in a coffee house, a library, or your kitchen table. as long as your bed’s not in sight and tempting you into a nap, you’re good.

  • your mental health is more important than your grades/school work

  • you are fabulous

  • they’re probably not even paying attention when you give a presentation

  • one friend is better than no friends

  • eat a healthy lunch

  • take care of yourself

  • please stay safe

  • your mental health is more important than your grades/school work

  • I love you

F I S H T A I L - H A L O - B R A I D

After filming my Bridesmaid tutorial a month ago I’ve been inundated with requests to film the hairstyle I was wearing - so here is a tutorial on the elegant up-do!
This hairstyle would be perfect this Summer for a Wedding, Prom or even a festival with a casual outfit. 

I teamed up with Shockwaves to bring you this video, all the products used have been listed in the description bar of the video. 

Enjoy! x

Okay okay, ., ,, .Tenel Ka is one of my favorite SW characters ever. She inspired a lot of weird braid hairstyles when I was a kid. I’ve gotta go back and read all those books again sometime, ., , ,,. good stuff.

Fishtail Hairstyles

Voltron As Things Said At My School
  • Shiro: Oh no I just got jabaited
  • Lance: She just called me a coconut
  • Pidge: *to Lance* Its because he's white on the inside
  • Hunk: I'll just lean on the wall cause if I sit down I might not get up
  • Keith: If I jumped off this balcony, would I die or break my legs
  • Allura: *holds up hair tie* DOES ANYBODY KNOW HOW TO FISHTAIL BRAID
  • Coran: The world is flat. *someone says no* oh yeah? Put a piece of paper on a basketball. What happens? It wraps around it. What about if you put a piece of paper on the earth. IT STAYS FLAT
  • Bonus
  • Lance: Why won't you let me cross the street?
  • Hunk: Cause you always almost get hit by a car
  • Lance: Nah man *walks out* *car comes*
  • Hunk: *pulls him back* See, you almost got hit

Sweater Weather Braids or Glimmer - The Hunger Games Braids

  1. Starting off with extra loose waves but any hair texture will work for this particular style.
  2. Next I sectioned off my hair in to two parts, making it loose not tight.
  3. I started each braid with a fishtail braid.
  4. Then about an inch or two down I spited the two sections in to three to start a three-strand braid.
  5. After braiding an inch or two of a three-strand braid I switched back to a fishtail braid.
  6. I continued these steps on both braid and made a slight pattern, I like the look of fuller braids so I pulled them apart for a fuller look.   

This is so gorgeous! Split your hair into 5 even sections and fishtail. If you don’t know how to fishtail there’s many tutorials on YouTube. It’s super hard to explain the order or the braids but you can tell my looking at the picture💖✨

Sorry for the really long post but I desperately needed to organize my reference tag. If any of the links don’t work please tell me and I will try to fix them as soon as possible.
