you can use magic erasers like a sandpaper and sand out the yellowing on a doll (in case you don’t have sand paper on hand or wanted something a bit more gentle). don’t forget to use proper safety protocols.
“What the - Lance!” Keith bit out as the ground disappeared from underneath him, suddenly reappearing under his head, and yep, there was Lances ass. “Put me down!” He let out a noise much like an angry cat, digging his fingers into his ribs to loosen his grip. Too much, too much contact. “Lance!”
According to reports today, President Donald Trump is about to sign legislation blocking the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces rule—a common-sense rule passed by President Obama that protects working people.
The Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces rule would have helped prevent employers who cheated their employees or put workers’ lives at risk from receiving federal contracts, by requiring that federal contractors disclose violations of federal labor and employment laws.
"What if I fell down right now? Would you write that down and /then/ come help me?"
“Depends how far you fell.” Keith didn’t look up, lips twitching slightly at the petulant tone. “I might write the next few things down first.” He glanced up at Lance slyly from under his fringe, bent over the Castles ‘shopping list’. “What do you need, Lance?”
After the birth of Luke and Leia,The people in the council were still unaware Padme was a witch,the only two people who knew were Precisely,Obi-Wan Kenobi and Her Husband Anakin Skywalker but that soon would change,when she gave the power of her council decisions to Bail Organa as she visited
Christophsis for a Visit but when she and her contact were at danger she casted a spell so anakin could see what was going on,like in his visions but with more realism unaware he was on
Cato Neimoidia but luckilly wouldn’t be that far or so one would hope.
‘’We du le mon ennemi on ton. We du le mon ennemi on ton revertas!’’
After that she got her contact to safety but forgetting herself as her foe was a witch as well
with that Padme fell to the ground unable to do anything else
The elevator doors opened with
the characteristic ding. Ford stepped in, catching a glimpse of the
other elevator occupant out of the corner of his eye. Someone was standing in the corner, going
through a wallet with a vested interest.
Ford shrugged and went to press the button for the fourth floor, but it
was already lit.
The other person in here must be
going to that floor as well. The
elevator rose quickly for a few moments before coming to a sudden stop with a
shudder. The lights flickered.
“Well, that’s just great,” the
other person in the elevator said, agitated.
Ford’s eyes widened.
I recognize that voice. He
turned. Sure enough, the “stranger” was
his twin brother. Stan crossed his arms.
“Goddammit. This is what I get for taking the elevator
and not the stairs. Shoulda known
better. Can’t trust things to not break
“Stanley?” Stan looked up. A decidedly sour expression settled on his
“Stanford. As if things couldn’t get any worse.” The lights stopped flickering, then shut off,
leaving them in total darkness. “…Fuck.”
“Stan, what are you doing here?”
Ford asked, straining his eyes in an attempt to see, despite the darkness.
“Does it matter? Look, are you gonna press the emergency
contact button or not?”
“Oh, right.” Ford felt along the wall of the
I keep meaning to learn Braille, but I’ve never gotten around to
it. Which is a shame, since I could
really use the ability to read with my fingertips right now. His fingers brushed against a button that
felt different from the rest. He pressed
it. There was a loud tone.
“Yes?” a voice said.
“Hello, the elevator has stopped
working, and we’re trapped.”
“How many people are there with
“I’ll notify the fire station.
They’ll send someone to help you out.”
“Thank you.” The task at hand being taken care of, Ford
turned his attention back to Stan.
“Seriously, Stanley, why are you here?”
“Why shouldn’t I be?”
“This is a hospital.”
“In San Diego.”
“Those two localities separate
do not seem like places you would visit, let alone when they are combined.”
“Good God, Sixer, learn how to
talk without sounding like you’re throwing up a dictionary.” There was a pause. “If you really need to know, I’m visiting
“Her name’s Nonya. Nonya Beeswax.”
“You’re as mature as ever, I
“Hmph.” Ford frowned.
“It really is rude for you to
continue to rebuff me, since you clearly didn’t follow my instructions.”
“What instructions? The ones where I was supposed to get a boat
and go to Russia, or Japan, or anywhere as long as you weren’t nearby?”
“Ford, when you saw me, I was
fucking homeless. If I wanted a boat, I
woulda had to steal one.”
“So? You don’t really care about committing crimes.” Even though Ford couldn’t see it, he imagined
his twin shrugging.
“Eh. Someone came along and talked me out of it
before I could.”
“Is that person the same one who
“…Maybe. Hang on, why are you here? Don’t you have
research to do? In a different state?”
“My research assistant is
visiting his younger sister. I came
“Oh.” A tense silence fell.
“Are you really not going to
tell me why you’re here?”
“Because fuck you, that’s why,”
Stan said shortly. The lights flickered
back on. Now that he could see Stan,
Ford looked him up and down. Stan
clearly wasn’t homeless anymore, and seemed to be healthier. He must have dropped his wallet at some
point. Pictures from it were scattered
over the elevator floor. Ford knelt down
to pick one up. “Hey!” Stan
protested. Ford examined the picture.
“Who is this?”
“I already told you about her.”
“Ah, this is Ms. Beeswax, then.” Stan snorted.
Ford looked up. His twin quickly
suppressed the small smile that had crossed his face. Ford stood and handed the picture to Stan. “Here.”
“…Thanks,” Stan said, taking the
picture from him and quickly scooping up the other ones. The elevator doors opened.
“Sorry about that, gentlemen,”
one of the firefighters said. Stan
“Whatever. Which floor is this?”
“Got it. Thanks for rescuing me from spending more
time with him,” Stan said, jerking a thumb in Ford’s direction. “…Even if it wasn’t that bad.” Stan stepped off the elevator and headed down
one of the corridors. Ford watched him
leave. He shook away the temptation to
follow his twin.
I’m not here to see him.
you tell me where room 435 is?” Ford asked one of the nurses standing
nearby. She pointed at the direction
Stan had gone in. “Thank you.” Ford set off at a brisk pace after Stan. “Stan!” he called. Stan turned.
“What is it?” Ford caught up with him.
“I’m headed this way, too.” Stan grinned.
“Huh. Sometimes when things break, the world doesn’t go to hell.”
i learned to bite back without getting blood on my mouth. to swing hard without breaking my fist. to set fires without burning up my own clothes.
sophomore year suicide but not really. part of me died and the other part wanted to. it’s not just an exaggeration it’s the scars under my skin. the ones on the outside that scabbed and healed over. the kids who thought rumors weren’t time bombs in rose gardens. like this is recess gossip not locker room isolation.
so I hit back. became the better bitch in most ways and grew thick skin. i don’t even feel the sting anymore. nothing can touch me so nothing can love me so nothing can fucking leave me.
forget safety in numbers. there’s only ever been safety in being alone.
