good concept. great concept. lets begin.
*rubs my hands together viciously*
so ever since you could remember, your neighbor was this cute old lady who considered you as one of her own grandchildren
like she’d bake cookies, cupcakes and other fun stuff like that and always brought them over to your house for you to eat
also she left the gate to her backyard open all the time for you to come over n play bc she had a lot more grass than your backyard
basically u loved her so much not only because she baked you stuff but she was always there for you when no one else was n she was so so kind and she watched you grow up and wOW IM GETTING EMO
you’re in highschool now n one day when you get home from school you see a moving truck and you’re like “wait wtf” so you come over to see what’s going on
and cute grandma says “im getting too old to live by myself, so i’m going to move to a resting home…” and you feel your heart shattering into millions of pieces and you almost cling to her and tell her to move in with your family
and she sees the tears forming in your eyes and she’s like “don’t worry, my family members will be moving in!! my grandson is your age, i’m sure you’ll get along well”
and on the day she leaves you’re so bitter bc you’ll miss her and you’ll miss her baking and her kind words
you’re so bitter that you don’t even bother welcoming the family in so you just head right back inside your house
after moping around for a bit in your room you decide to go out to your backyard to get some fresh air or something
so you’re just minding your own business until you you hear a particularly loud curse word and a soccer ball just goes right over your head and lands a few feet away from you
judging from where the ball is, you concluded that it came from the other side of the fence,, where grandma’s backyard is,,,,,
you just shrug and toss it back over, n then you decide to go back inside bc you weren’t in the mood to get hit by a ball if it happened again
the second you get inside you hear a knock on your front door and you’re like ??? and when you go to open it you’re like………. whom
the boy in front of you has like.. sweat glistening on his forehead and his eyebrows are kind of furrowed and he’s wearing a thin shirt and you’re like… mom holy f*ck
and then he turns to look at you and in your head you’re like “dhjzHEFUH I WAS STARING SH*T”
and then he’s like “hi.. yeah i’m ur new neighbor… i might have kicked a ball over to your garden… is it okay if i get it?”
and then you finally get yourself together and you’re like “oh i already tossed it back. what’s your name?”
“chan! you must be y/n, grandma told me a lot about you. we’ll be going to the same school!”
and you’re like…. ho ly c ow grandma has an attractive grandson “cool! we can walk to school together.”
“that’d be awesome! see ya, y/n!”
and then he leaves and you’re just standing at your front door like an idiot like “why did i say we should walk to school together how am i gonna sURVIVE”
the first time you walk to school together it’s kind of awks, but chan’s just rly good at making conversation and by the time you’re walking home you feel like you’ve known him forever
that mfriends, is how u and chan became bfs (best friends)
chan joins the soccer team @ your school and you BET your ass is there at every game with a giant poster board of his face, embarrassing the hell out of him.. you also show up to his practices with food n stuff and he’s like “y/n.. my saving grace.. my only god(dess)…”
“shut up ur so dramatic.. here’s your popcorn chicken”
when u get ur first s.o., chan is like “if they do anything stupid i’ll kick their ass”
every day he comes over n hangs out in your backyard to do hw and then after a while he gets bored n is like “…. you wanna watch me play soccer” “thank god i thought you wouldnt ask”
and then you leave your homework behind to go to his backyard and watch him kick the soccer ball around idk how sports work sorry lmfao
and this is like a ritual for u guys like.. every day you’d walk to school together, you’d hang out together, you’d visit his practices/games if he had them, you’d walk home together, do hw together, BASICALLY YOU DID EVERYTHING TOGETHER
then one day ur s.o. breaks up with you and you’re pretty much “well this is how i d*e” and you know chan is gonna have a big game soon, so you decide not to burden him with your problems
and you’re slowly avoiding him and you start waking up earlier to go to school, pay no attention to him at school, leave the second the bell rings, etc.
and even though you did it not to worry him, you don’t know that you’re actually worrying him even more,, like his coach keeps telling him “get ur head together” but he can’t because he’s just so concerned about you
so he asks a few of your other friends if anything’s wrong and they’re like “y/n didn’t tell you?? ______ broke up with them.”
and chan’s suddenly like “WHAT THE HEL L??>?” and he’s abt to go to kick the ass of whoever broke your heart, but then he thinks about how horrible you must feel n he gets all emotional
he doesn’t know what to do so he ends up calling grandma for advice and she tells him everything he needs to know abt what u need when you’re upset
and you’re at home and your face is all puffy from crying (both from best friend withdrawals and from the break up) and you get a text from chan saying “come outside”
and you ignore the message at first but then he starts messaging you on everyplatform like facebook, instagram, snapchat, kkt, skype, etc
all of them just say “come out” and you’re like JESUS CHRIST OKAY
and you drag yourself out of bed to your front door and when you open it up you see chan with a phone in hand and a plate of cookies in the other and he just looks so so sad and your heart shatters right there
“i don’t know what i can do to help, but grandma told me that her cookies always made you feel better.”
and you can see that he has a little bit of flour still on his hands and he has the vanilla baking smell on him and you just start tearing up n you pull him into a hug n start sobbing
n he’s just patting your back like “there there,,, also the cookies are getting cold,,,”
but anyways after that event let’s just finish this quickly and say that chan went from your bf (best friend).. to your bf (boyfriend) :’)
EXTRA: chan texts the news to grandma and she’s just “hehe… my plan worked”
I’ve only been in Hetalia’s fandom for like - two weeks, and I’m already lost forever. Moreover, I just finished @cookies-hetaoni game tonight and, golly, I’m still dead from the inside. So here, have a little Iggy! Igor and Loup are coming soon huhu.
While this recipe is not from the game, this is the sort of treat I can imagine Hulda at the Bannered Mare in Whiterun making in big batches for her patrons. These almond cookies are chewy, sweet, and a delicious accompaniment to any drink. Share these among friends as you sit by the fire and listen to tales of the Dragonborn from the bard.
You will need:
7 oz/198 g almond paste, chopped
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla essence
Preheat oven to 160C/325F and line two baking trays with baking paper.
In a mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients, butter, and vanilla essence. Using a hand whisk, whip until fluffy.
Add the almond paste and egg, and continue whipping on high until the mixture is smooth and free of lumps. This can take some time as the almond paste is very dense, so be patient.
Space the cookies apart on the baking trays as they will spread. I recommend about half a tablespoon per cookie, with a gap about 3 fingers wide between each. Cookie moulds can also be helpful (not cookie cutters, the dough for this recipe is too liquid).
Bake for 15 minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown on the outside. Cool for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. These cookies are best eaten immediately while warm, but can be kept up to 2 weeks in an airtight jar.
these are some games that i’ve played and loved !! (as shown):
Tap Tap Fish: a click click click game sort of like cookie cutter where you gain points and build up a huge + beautiful aquarium! its very soothing and gentle to look at! a huge visual-stim for sure
Two-Dots: a puzzle game! like connect-the-dots but trickier. i found this really stimulating mentally! (make sure you read the instructions of each level because i forgot to a couple of times and was SO baffled)
Oxenfree: this was recommended to me last week + i love it! it’s a point + click game where you explore a spooky island and unlock a mystery (ive only just started it but i looove it, it’s very attention consuming because your really get sucked into the story!! it makes me feel like im in scooby doo or something 10/10
Toca Nature: you use your finger to drag and push across the screen and mould a landscape/environment! you can drop it plants and animals + then watch how they thrive + you collect food or plants that grow to feed them! it has really beautiful soothing background music too
Toca Boo: one of my fave really simple games- you drag your lil ghost character around the house in the dark + hide them + then pop out and scare people!
Lumino City: so so so pretty- another point + click adventure/explore game! you have to solve really tricky puzzles to try and rescue the characters grandather! it’s definitely mentally stimulating.
good luck my love + take care !!!
