Can you write something where Logan proposes but kinda messes up and it's just really fluffy cause there's always smutty Logan (Not that I'm complaining) and I just need a little fluffy Logan in my life

It had to be perfect. Logan had spared no expense because you deserved for it to be absolutely perfect. All week, he’d been fretting silently which led to yelling at anyone who dared inconvenience hime. You’d noticed he’d been on edge, but he kept reassuring you it was just an upcoming deadline and not to worry about him. So when Friday night came, you’d thought he’d be a little less high strung- no such luck.

“Where are we going?” you asked as he turned another corner, silently chewing on his knuckle.

“We’re almost there,” he replied absent-mindedly, his eyes never leaving the road.

“That totally didn’t answer my question…” He had pulled the car around to a valet. He shut off the engine and came around to open your door. You followed behind him as he tossed the keys to his Range Rover to the teenager in a black vest, who fumbled and ultimately dropped the keys. Logan’s jaw visibly clenched, a look of pure aggravation on his face. “They’re just keys, Lo,” you began, taking his hand, “you don’t have to scare the poor kid.”

“Just doesn’t seem that difficult to catch two fucking keys…” he muttered, still incredibly tense. The two of you walked through a short hallway that led out to a private garden, a small bistro table was set in the middle covered in candles and fresh foliage. 

“Logan, this place is beautiful!” you smile, turning to face him. It was the first time you’d seen him smile in days. 

“Well, I wanted to take my baby girl somewhere special,” he smirked, gesturing for you to take a seat. He pulled out your chair, letting you settle in before taking his own seat. “You look incredible tonight, sweetheart,” he mused, leaning back in his chair. A blush spread across your face, his gaze a little too strong for you to look at directly.

You had just begun chatting when a very frantic looking man came into view, timidly trying to seek Logan’s attention. This irritated him immediately, but he politely excused himself from you before storming over to the man. Though it was hard to hear what exactly the man said, it was easy to read Logan’s reaction. Whatever news he had just broken, your boyfriend was not taking it well at all.

“Are you fucking kidding me!!” Logan boomed, running his hands through his dark hair. The man appeared to be apologizing profusely, much to the indifference of Logan. He turned on his heels, leaving the frazzled man behind him. “I’m sorry about that babe, what were you saying?”

“Is…is everything ok?” you asked, raising an eyebrow.

“They could be better, but yes, everything is fine,” he weakly smiled. His dark eyes were still coming down from being angry as he anxiously pulled at the hairs of his beard. He eventually calmed down a bit as you continued to tell him about your day, the smile lines eventually reappearing on his face. Logan had finally begun to unwind until a waiter appeared before you, giving you a plate of salmon.

“Oh, I…I’m so sorry, I’m actually allergic to…” you began.

“This has to be a joke! Did I not specifically say that she’s allergic to seafood. And wouldn’t you know! Fish is included in seafood!” he said through gritted teeth.

“I’m very sorry, sir. I…I…” the waiter stammered.

“Just go!” The man scurried away behind a door on the far side of the room.

“Logan! What’s gotten into you? You’re never this rude to…”

“Oh, fuck it,” he interrupted. You barely had time to even think about yelling at him for cutting you off when he was kneeling before you. Your eyes became wide as he took your left hand in his. “Y/N, all I wanted was for this night to be perfect. Because that’s what you deserve. But obviously, I couldn’t pull it off. And this is totally not the speech I had planned, but here it goes anyway: I love you. I love you more than I thought was even possible. You make me want to be less of an asshole. You make me laugh and smile and tell me when I’m out of line. I need you, probably a lot more than you need me. But Y/N, I want to know if you’d do me the honor of being my wife?”

Tears were pricking at the corner of your eyes as you emphatically nodded your head yes. His smile was wide as he removed a shiny, new ring from his jacket pocket and slid it on your finger.

“Of course. Yes!” You wrapped your arms around his neck, kissing him with every part of your being. He smiled into your lips, his hands gripping tight on your waist. You broke away slightly, placing your forehead on his. “Is this why you’ve been such a weird ass this week?”

“Shhh…” he laughed, pulling you tight to him and kissing you once again.

sweet woodruff is Galium oderatum and one of the best plants to have in moistish shade. it has been in New England since the 1600s and is often overlooked. the flowers last for a bit in May and June and are used in the traditional May Wine. The foliage stays fresh looking through fall and when dried has the scent of newly cut grass. this photo taken May 20 in the Marblehead garden of Carter Wentworth.

Of course Thrawn would. With the rest of his life taking that drastic turn down the waste chute, why shouldn’t his death!? Of course there happened to be an old base that the Rebellion had been trying to raid for months. Of course this base happened to be on a humid, tropical area of the planet. Of course, in an “attempt” to keep the Rebels away, some of the dangerous and more smelly flora from Onderon had been transplanted nearby. And to top everything off, the “Rebels” just so happened to have set out bombs, since if they couldn’t have this base, no one could. They were in plain sight, silently waiting for the remote detonation. Kallus would have snorted at the absurdity if he’d had the guts left to. Scoffing at what this would turn into was not something he could ever manage.

Thrawn had obviously read his files. The Chiss had to have memorized every detail of that report… Looked up exactly how Saw Gererah made his explosives, too. The Grand Admiral was thorough, as always, for his back-up plans. He had no doubt he would have been told he would live to regret his last assist to the Phoenix Squadron, but it seemed very clear that he would not be given the leisure to. Then, again, that had been the magnum opus of Grand Admiral Thrawn he had blundered.

The waiting was the longest part. He could not leave this room even if he wanted to. There were more explosives rigged to blow if the sealed door budged just a millimeter.They may have let him keep his bow rifle, but it was unloaded, uncharged, and nothing more than a weight on his back. ISB 021 took to pacing, after a while. He stayed by certain areas; the trajectory of the shrapnel and explosion itself would do more damage, kill quicker. There was a brief moment where he seemed to head towards the door, intent on blowing this place, himself, but Kallus paused, thought, then retreated back to his pacing.

Soon…. Thrawn would set it off soon. The Rebellion would not come here, and the Empire would not leave until the job was done. They would all stay at a distance…. It would be better for all of them to keep their distance from him. Taking a deep, steadying breath, Kallus stepped out of the instant kill zone.


Fire had ripped through the compound, tearing it apart at each seam while creating its own openings in the larger chunks. The roar was deafening. The fresh, green foliage surrounding the area caught aflame, letting loose thick, dark smoke. The smell clung to everything.


His ears were ringing. Everything beyond that sounded like it came through thick cloth stuffed in his ears…. Kallus twitched, feeling something wet against his cheek. Blood…. His body was aching, pinned under… under something. He couldn’t move…. He could not move. His eyes were burning the moment he cracked them open, a cough escaping his lungs.

That smell…. It was something he couldn’t forget. He couldn’t see far beyond the smoke, but his blurry eyes could visualize bodies out of the rubble. Senses dazed by an all too familiar stench and sensation, all he could do was sink back into his head as memories flooded through. His platoon…. His friends, his coworkers, faces he had watched through tough exams and celebrating graduating, and…. and twisted and bloody and lifeless…

And there was a shadowy Lasat, walking calmly though the smoke and flames…. It felt right, somehow. Kallus knew, somewhere, that he would be dead, soon. He felt so numb. That Lasat, looking at him, should be the final thing he sees….

“..!!!”


“Hey hey hey…. easy…. Ezra, be careful with that, he’s banged up enough!” Green eyes, large, round, and concerned, Zeb watched the heavy breathing ex-agent struggle. “Karabast…. I’m gonna make that son of a-!! Ah, nonono, relax, Kallus…. Just look at me…. Look at me. It’s not Onderon…. It’s not Onderon… We’re gonna get you on the Ghost, y’see? Fix you up and let you get some rest… Won’t let you dream ‘bout those things. I’ll keep ya’ safe…. See? We got ya’ loose… Just keep still, now, I got’cha… Oi, Chop? Might need a bit more’a that plaster…”

Imagine #78 Liam [Requested]

Beacon Hills High School reverberate with enthusiastic dialogue, gossiping teenagers whispering about the newest proposals flowering in traffic areas of the High School; classrooms, the cafeteria, the library and the lacrosse field. Witnessing Winter Prom proposals were disseminating sadness in those dateless to the event; not a sole teenager would willingly attend the social event alone, it was embarrassing. Scott asked Kira, Stiles asked Malia, Jackson asked Lydia; it was disheartening to be the odd person out with no prospects of a suitor. Lydia, Kira and Malia were brainstorming; discussing the intricate planning involved with choosing a dress, hiring a limo service and deciding on group activities of celebration after the event. A disgruntled scowl eclipsed your features, a malicious glare directed at the countless bouquets of intricately arranged flowers at the cafeteria table routinely preoccupied by your clique of friends.

Plant of the Day

Saturday 30 April 2016

This is a young Prunus ‘Shirotae’ (flowering cherry); a spreading deciduous tree with a flat crown often with branches longer than the trunk. It has fresh green young foliage contrasting with fragrant, pure white, semi-double flowers (5cm in width) and orange-red autumn colour. I rescued this one from the 'bargain bin’ at a local garden centre and it seems happy!

The bitter months of Skyrim’s winter came to end at last. The waning clumps of snow retreated into the loam as fresh foliage emerged in brilliant shades of green. Early budding colors dotted the meadows with a subtle fragrance that traveled among pleasantly cool zephyrs. The rivers roared with a vigor that could be heard for miles, clear and icy veins that longed to roam again. 

Adelein was able to see, hear, and sense the heartbeat of Nirn once more. A familiar presence that she could have easily taken for granted. Her thoughts had become idle, eerily silent and placid. A caged bird suddenly realized the vastness of it’s freedom, a concept that was once impossible. It was not unpleasant, but daunting. The Seed of the Garden had written it’s past, but the black tome could no longer comprehend it’s future. The pages patiently remained blank. 

-More to come-

Will possibly be posting these on @adelein-gardinier in the future. Expect a lot of TES worldbuilding. It’s a solo project for the most part so there will be no RP to spam non-RP followers with. See you there, and I hope you enjoy my new project!

Sterling stars shone brightly against the deep blue seemingly endless sky. Dense purple clouds occasionally scattered disrupting the perfect canvas of night. Soaking in the flawless beauty of nature, your petite hands plucked absently at the damp dew covered blades of grass. Daydreaming irises gazing up at the lustrous twinkling stars, pleasant breeze delicately flowing over the bare skin of your exposed limbs. A harmonious chime disrupted the complacent silence earning attention almost instantly. The smartphone’s screen displayed the alert: One Unread Message. Like clockwork, your thoughts observed as your index finger danced nimbly across the screen.

Each night at precisely 9:00pm an unknown number would send you delightful text messages of romantic nature; loving compliments, romantic quotes and the sporadic cutesy poem. The contact was saved as ‘Admirer’ in the electronic phonebook, per the mysterious stranger’s request, and the number never answered when you replied asking their identity. This last week however, you’ve opened your locker each day to an adorable gift. Today a slip of notebook paper lie on the textbooks lined meticulously in the steel locker with an interesting message; I think it’s time we meet, don’t you? Be at the lacrosse field at 9:00pm. So here you were, despite countless opposition from the pack, awaiting this secret admirer to reveal their identity.
