could you imagine The Enterprise having like a yearly inspection and Kirk bugs out every time because the best running ship in the fleet certainly doesn’t become so because they follow therules. He has to remind the crew a week in advance to actually call him Captain and use formal titles. Bones and Scotty’s shared bathroom which is one hundred percent a liquor cabinet/distillery cannot be a thing.
Sulu has to collect all of his plants out of everywhere that’s not the Botany Labs and hide the illegal ones he picked up during their journey in his quarters. Scotty has to remove all of his Scotty-Approved-Modifications from Engineering. Spock can’t work four shifts in a row and break the ensigns that challenge him in the gym to sparring matches. Bones can’t medically offer alcohol to anybody. Uhura needs to not curse every ten minutes, in any language. Chekov needs to focus more on his console and less on every pair of legs walking by his station.
I love you so much and I know that some of you are still fairly new to the figure skating world. So let me clarify some facts, especially for who want to write fanfiction about it.
The Grand Prix Final is NOT the end of the competitive season, hardly so! The season usually goes something like this:
October to November: the Grand Prix series (Skate America, Skate Canada, Rostelecom Cup, Trophée de France, Cup of China, NHK Trophy);
Early December: the Grand Prix Final in which compete the best 6 skaters of every discipline (Men, Ladies, Pairs and Ice Dance).
Late December/Early January: the various national championships (Russia, U.S, Canada, Japan, etc) –> the placement of the skaters will decide who is going to represent their country in the following competitions.
Late January: the European Championship –> ONLY european skaters can take part in this competition (it includes the russian skaters).
February: the Four Continents Championships (4CC) –> it’s the answer to the European Championship, involving the skaters from the others continents (such as americans, canadians, the chinese, the japanese, etc).
Late March/Early April: the World Championship –> the MOST important event of the season, expect the Olympics. This is the competition a skater really really want to win or at least medal at it.
After the Worlds, the season has officially ended!
From spring to summer the skaters are going to rest, revaluate, take part in ice shows around the world (this is when they actually earn some money, you go bb) and then prepare the new programmes for the next season.
One last thing: every 4 years are held the Winter Olympics Games, the MOST important competition in a skater’s career. If you win this, be sure that you will be remembered as one of the best ever.
Salt Lake 2002 –> Torino 2006 –> Vancouver 2010 –> Sochi 2014 –> Pyeongchang 2018.
I hope I have been helpful, take care my lovelies!
So I was at a coffee shop downtown earlier and the girl working the register was visibly not having a good day but still managed to smile and be friendly to everyone.
The girl in front of me stepped up to the till and as soon as she opened her mouth it was obvious she’s one of those kind and bubbly people who just radiates actual sunshine everywhere they go. Before she ordered she made small talk with the barista, asked how her day was going etc.
The barista got around to asking what she’d like and the girl asked if the barista likes tea. The barista was a bit confused but said yes and was asked for a recommendation. The barista told the girl she loves the new orange pekoe they recently started selling and the girl ordered two.
When the girl received her tea, she took both, put one back down on the counter and said “this is for you”, smiled and walked out.
The barista smiled all through my transaction, and still was when I left.
I spent a few minutes internally gushing about it before thinking Imagine Your OTP

A/N: Heeey so I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted any writing so I’m very nervous about this one. It’s my first Jughead imagine ever, so I hope you like it and if you’d want a part 2, let me know. I already have some idea for a continuation ;)
Word count: 2.825
She walked in like a midsummer breeze, swaying and changing the course of everything under the sun. She perturbed the usually
sober times of Riverdale.
And it annoyed Jughead Jones to no end.
(Y/N) didn’t feel good. Her bitter nerves slowly morphed into a nauseous
tension which took over her stomach. From the first moment she placed her foot
onto the grounds of her new school, the air seemed to change drastically. And
she wasn’t the only one who seemed to notice the thick, static-like uneasiness
in the air. They all stared at her. Every single pair of eyes fixed her face,
supposedly searching for a familiar feature.
Did everybody know everybody in this damn village?
(Y/N) tried to avoid direct eye contact, although she kept her head high
as she walked.
But as she reached the backyard of Riverdale High, her breath hitched in
her throat. Releasing a strangled huff as she came to a sudden stop, she
gripped the strip of her bag tighter between her long, shaky fingers and
replaced it further on her shoulder. A sea of students was laying before her
frozen figure, hundreds of eyes piercing her skull and rummaging through her
(Y/N) sighed deeply and swallowed the tight lump in her throat, before
urging her unsteady feet to move forward, slicing right through the yard filled
with students. She held a confident pace in her step, although the heart burned
by a mocking fire threatened to burst out of her chest at any moment.
It was going to be a long day.
She didn’t expect to find herself into such a place so soon. She didn’t
expect to place a single foot inside it at all, actually.
(Y/N) stood in the doorway of what seemed to be a fast food. Pop’s was
filled with students which crowded the booths around the powerfully lit dine.
Their loud voices travelled across the room, hitting walls and piercing (Y/N)’s
ears. It was all too noisy and crowded in there for her liking, and if wasn’t
for the frozen water droplets which bit at her exposed skin, she wouldn’t have
been there in the first place. Not now, at least. But there was no other
choice, was it?
She stole a quick glance outside and felt her eyebrows lower, urging her
lids to shield her eyes more than they already had. A sharp breath passed her
lips and she adjusted the strip of her bag on her shoulder once again, before
scanning the room rapidly.
A mild grimace crossed her features as she acknowledged the only free
spot in the entire room. It was an isolated booth, occupied by a boy she
recognised briefly. A picture of their eyes connecting during classes flashed
through her brain.
Lonely, raven locks hanged loosely across his forehead, narrowed eyes
mirrored the shining words written on the screen of his laptop and lips pressed
together tightly into a straight line.
And, of course, a grey beanie covered his head, shielding him and making
him impossible to ignore at the same time.
(Y/N) was going to sit next to Jughead
Gathering the last bit of courage in her body, (Y/N) approached his
table sheepishly, her hands shoved deeply inside her pockets and her eyes wide
with anticipation. Swallowing the bitter lump in her throat, she let the words
drift off her tongue.
“Um- excuse me?”
His eyes snapped towards her almost instantly and (Y/N) struggled to
keep herself from flinching at the sharp look she received.
“Would you mind if I sit down? It’s all crowded in here, and outside
it’s raining, so I can’t actually go-”
“Fine.” he replied shortly, before his stare returned to the screen of
his laptop and his fingers began typing vigorously.
(Y/N)’s chest fell as she exhaled with relief and gingerly slid into the
seat opposite from the boy.
She quickly took out a pencil, a small notebook and a pair of
headphones, which she connected to her phone. Gathering her bag close, she shrunk
deeper into the corner near the window and leaned her head against the cold
glass. She closed her eyes for a brief second, letting a soft sigh escape her
lips and basking in the cool sensation which spread through her temple, before
tilting her head and scribbling down a few words on the paper.
Soon enough, the words began flowing inside her head, filling her with a
familiar sensation of assurance. The pen left black marks onto the white sheet
and while she filled pages after pages with thoughts and drawings, a silvery,
rhythmic murmur began dripping from her lips.
With a brief tilt of her head, her eyes slowly travelled towards the
raven haired boy. She felt herself freeze when her eyes locked with his.
He had been watching her all along. From the first damned moment she
entered Pop’s, all uncertain and awkward, to when she leaned her head against
the window and began bloody singing.
The sound of her silvery voice and the continuous scribbling of her
pencil on the paper kept him from his writing.
For a reason he didn’t know, her presence made his chest constrict with a
feeling he couldn’t quite describe. Uneasiness seemed a poor choice of words,
but it was the closest to what he was experiencing of them all. The nerves
bubbled up inside his stomach, probably waiting for the perfect moment to
At first, when she showed up next to him and asked if she could sit
down, he thought ignoring her would be easy. But he was so… fucking wrong.
He remembered her. From the moment he caught her Y/E/C eyes, he
remembered. Seeing them in every class that day, seeking for them whenever she
wasn’t there. He remembered the shy smile she gave when the teacher presented
her to the rest of the class. He remembered the gleam in her eyes during
Psychology, when they talked about human rights and abstract concepts like
love. He remembered the burning passion in her voice and the intelligence which
shined through her actions and thoughts.
He remembered all of her, and it seemed like a curse.
She was probably the most distracting person he’d ever seen in his
The way she bit her lip in thought, or the way she hummed contently when
a phrase she liked came up to her mind. It was all too fascinating for Jughead,
a concept he couldn’t understand. The way her hair fell into her face and the
way she just didn’t bother to push it away made him boil with the urge to brush
it to the side with a gentle touch.
Even though it started with secret glances he stole at her crunched
figure, he just found his eyes and brain wanting more, to return to the sight
of her face. So, after a while, he just gave up on his tentatives of writing
and focused on her entirely.
Jughead stared at her. At how her expressions changed with a flash, at the
soft smile which warmed her lips from time to time, followed by a private sigh,
and at her piercing, radiating eyes, which stared off into the lonely distance.
It felt… strange. Strange and highly inappropriate, he thought of a
better label for his odd interest in the girl.
She was new to this town. That was her first day in a new school, with
new people and different surroundings. She was a stranger to him, a girl he’d
just seen around for a few hours, before she came to Pop’s, where she sat down
in front of him.
Why had he said yes in the first place?
Jughead clenched his jaw and felt his fingers curl in annoyance.
It was an understatement to say he was confused… and pissed. Maybe a
little bit at her, because she was so damn captivating and enchanting and just…
different from all the girls he’d seen. But mainly at him, for taking such an
interest in her, for his sudden change. He felt like the wall of ignorance and
cold feelings he managed to build over the years was now crumbling down…
because of one person.
She made his temper falter slightly, just by… existing. And being there,
present, sitting next to him, and murmuring so beautifully it made him grimace.
She acted so natural. So… carefree and oblivious. She seemed lost to this
world, caught between the walls of her own mind, enchanted into a dance with
her own thoughts…
He was still staring. Probably more intently, by now.
Was it even healthy?
And that made a crisp, thin feeling of fear creep into his soul,
tickling the sides of his shielded heart and sending shivers down his spine.
But a sudden change into his view seemed to snap Jughead out of his trance.
found himself staring into (Y/E/C) orbs, which watched back with surprise. He quickly came to acknowledge all of her figure, his gaze shifting from
her eyes, and shook his head slightly.
He returned to the screen of his laptop, a pale blush warming his cheeks,
hoping she’d go back to writing just as well. But he could feel her stare
piercing through his head and lurking through his mind. He heard a ruffling
noise as Y/N changed her position so she was facing him properly.
“You’re blushing” a soft voice rang inside his ears.
(Y/N) couldn’t help it. She didn’t mean to say it out loud, but it just
slipped off her tongue.
The sight of the turbulent feelings which swam inside his eyes tickled her
interest. They held a blurry surface, like a broken mirror, so no one could see
(Y/N) felt intrigued in an odd way by the boy beside her.
Aside from the fact that he was damn right staring at her, she found it strange
that he immediately looked away. She didn’t expect Jughead to be so… sensitive,
she might say. Let alone to see him blush.
(Y/N) shifted again, placing her bag down from her lap and leaning forward
a little bit to peer at the boy. The sight of his red cheeks and embarrassed
expression sent her lips into a smirk.
He continued to stare at the screen of his laptop for a few moments,
before finally turning his attention to her.
She smiled tenderly in his direction and he felt something melt inside
Shaking her head at his silence, (Y/N) withdrew her hand.
“I’m (Y/N)” she said.
Jughead’s eyes flickered towards her hand suspiciously and his stare
narrowed. It took a raise of her eyebrows for him to finally shake her hand.
“Jughead” he shortly introduced himself.
A heavy silence followed their handshake. (Y/N)’s smile faded slowly, her
lips pressed now in a tight line. She shielded her eyes, gaze falling to her
lap and began fiddling with her fingers in an attempt to calm the fire of her
Jughead, though, he continued to watch her with thin eyes and furrowed
eyebrows. The corners of his lips twitched slightly at her bashful blushing.
“So…” he cleared his throat, an awkward expression visible on his face.
(Y/N) tilted her head to peer at him with interest.
“Seems like we’re going to stay in here for a while” he gestured to the
pouring rain outside.
She absently nodded her head, her gaze drifting off to the window and
watched as big drops of water slid down the window.
“You seem to like writing”
She blinked, making Jughead raise an eyebrow.
“Am I right?”
“Actually, yes, I do like writing, but it’s…”
She trailed off, with a look like she said too much, but Jughead just
raised his eyebrows with curiosity, urging her to tell him more.
“It’s not a book, or something… They’re just random musings I have
during a day, or just scattered thoughts I manage to catch from time to time.
This is mainly filled with drawings” she held her notebook up “but, recently, I
began writing very much in it”
Jughead’s features shifted with surprise.
“So you’re drawing too?”
“I’m not that good at it… but yeah. I just feel like… anything I
describe in words is kind of incomplete without a drawing, and every drawing
needs a few feelings on mine scribbled down next to it”
Jughead opened his mouth to ask a question, but shut it quickly, seeming
undecided on what to do.
But (Y/N) looked at him expectantly, arching one eyebrow.
“Can I… possibly take a look? Painters and artists like you intrigue me.
I can’t understand how you create such masterpieces with just a crayon”
She seemed to consider his words for a moment, before she reached out to
hand him the notebook. His finger brushed against hers and (Y/N) fought a
strangled gasp from passing her lips, as an electric wave shot through her
Jughead took his time to open the notebook and look at her drawings and
writing. He admired every single page. She was indeed talented, not only at
drawing, but at writing too. Every single word touched his heart. She knew how
to leave an impact on the reader, and take them into her mind, make them feel
everything she writes and thinks.
Jughead couldn’t help but be
As his eyes focused on the next page, he felt his chest constrict.
There, on the white paper, was his face, drawn with such precision he thought it
was an actual picture of him.
At first, he frowned in disbelief.
“Do you draw people often?”
“Only those who attract me” (Y/N) replied with a distant voice, her nose buried into a book
A wide, soft smile warmed his lips and a strange feeling filled his
stomach. Jughead didn’t know how to describe it, but again, it was about (Y/N).
She was a mystery herself, for that matter.
He closed the notebook slowly, then placed it on the table, in front of
(Y/N)’s eyes snapped up and, closing her book, she carefully focused her
attention back to Jughead.
“So, you find me attractive, huh?” he smirked smugly at her, leaning in
so he could take a better view at her expression.
She stared at him for a moment, before all the blood drained from her
face. Her mouth fell open in horror and a ghostly gasp escaped her lips, but
actual words refused to come out.
Jughead spluttered with laughter at the sight of her mortified
Even though she gave him a sour face, (Y/N) quietly decided she wanted
to hear him laugh like that again.
“I didn’t realise that was you. It was just an image which was stuck into
my head all day, so-”
But she stopped herself short, realising what slipped past her lips. She
mentally face palmed for being so stupid.
He smiled at her mistake, biting his lip to keep the laugh from erupting
(Y/N) decided to look outside once again, secretly wishing Jughead haven’t
seen her embarrassed blush.
She frowned at the sight which took over her view. It wasn’t raining
anymore. She could finally go home.
Although… she kind of liked Jughead’s company.
With a sigh, she grabbed her stuff and placed it back into her bag,
before turning to Jughead. He was watching her with confused eyes.
“Are you leaving already?”
(Y/N) smiled softly at him, before gesturing to the window.
“The rain stopped. I have to go home”
His face fell with disappointment for a second, before a crooked smile
lifted the corers of his mouth.
“Well, I’ll see you at school, then?”
Even though it was supposed to be a statement, it came out more like a
“Sure” she replied, placing her bag onto her shoulder and waving at the
raven haired boy.
Jughead stood there, chewing on his tongue and watching her head for the
door, not wanting to be left alone by someone for the first time in his life. Before
any rational thought could stop him, he opened his mouth to yell after the
She turned around with raised eyebrows.
“This seat is always free, and I’m here every day after school, so…” he
trailed off, unsure how to continue his awkward suggestion.
Her expression immediately warmed and she smiled at him brightly, a rosy
tint on her cheeks.
“Are you saying I can bother you every night?”
Jughead smiled back, sensing the humour in her voice.
(Y/N) let out a quiet laugh, before turning on her heels and walking out
“You asked for it, Jones. You can’t get rid of me that easily now. Not
here, not at school” she said over her shoulder, making Jughead shake his head
with a full smile.
A quiet whisper left his lips as he watched her blurry shape walk away through
the foggy window.
