getting away from stress

  • people with kids: oh MAN being a parent is so STRESSFUL I can't WAIT to get away from the kids all the SCREAMING and TANTRUMS
  • me: I don't want children
  • people with kids: no parenthood is a joyous thing you won't know real love until you have them

Don’t assume that I don’t care about what’s going on in the world because I don’t post or reblog about it. I come to tumblr to get away from the stress and anxiety of life. I am ever so grateful to see that people are generous and caring, but I’m also grateful to those who keep posting gifs and pics of handsome men and funny things.  They keep my dash a safe place where I can, for a brief moment, not worry about tomorrow. Or tonight. Or next year. 

This Is Me - Ace!Jughead x Reader

I was/am reluctant to post this because it has the potential to become very problematic, hence why it is so short.
I hope you understand that I mean no offense, and that I may be unintentionally ignorant of certain facts/aspects regarding asexuality, and its spectrum.
Please feel free to correct/educate me on it; I will be very grateful.
And if this becomes too problematic in anyway (like if a lot of people take offense) I will gladly take it down.


You lean against Jughead, your head in the crook of his neck, as the both of you stare out at the lake. It was supposed to be a pleasant day out, just to get away from the stress of school and the looming shadow of Jason’s death, but somehow it just felt off. Jughead was being more quiet than usual, his witty remarks and sardonic comments absent from conversation, and he was being strangely fidgety too. He shifts uncomfortably, his eyes darting down to you briefly before going back to the lake.

“Jughead,” you mutter, worried, “What’s up with you?”

We’re Going to Disney!

For @bat-addicted-loony, the Disney Movie Trivia winner! They wanted something about the seven going to Disney World. Congrats again!


  • It was probably the first time ever the seven friends were able to get away from the stress of school and parents, besides Sally and Paul since they were chaperoning the trip. It was spring break and they were all going to Disney World for a mini vacation. 
  • For most of them, it was their first time going to Disney World. The only person who has went before was Piper but a lot has changed since she was five. 
  • Annabeth had planned out their entire tip for them. She took everyone’s considerations as she mapped out which rides they would hit in what order and what part of the park had the meal plan they got. 
  • The first day they went to the parks, they went to Magic Kingdom. They went down Main Street, USA before heading towards Adventureland. 
  • What Annabeth forgot to account was taking pictures with characters. When Hazel saw Mickey, she had to go take a picture with him. Everyone else wanted to take pictures too.
  • So, it became a thing, taking goofy pictures with each character they came across. By the end of the day, they would have a total of ten pictures; Mickey, Peter Pan, Aladdin and Jasmine, Tiana, Donald Duck, Cinderella, Winnie the Pooh, Pluto, Minnie, and Goofy.
  • Annabeth took them all to the Hall of Presidents. It wasn’t everyone’s favorite part of the day, but they went through it anyways.
  • The tried to hit all the rides before the end of the day, but there were some things in Tomorrowland that they missed because of timing. 
  • They all got Mickey Mouse ears, thanks to Piper’s dad. He told Piper he would by her friends one gift from each park. So, Magic Kingdom, Mickey Mouse ears.
  • The next day, they went to Epcot. There weren’t many rides, but they hit them all. Again, they took pictures with any character they found, their total now up to fifteen characters. 
  • They went on Test track about five times. And got the picture of the seven of them screaming and laughing on the ride.
  • They stayed until the park closed so they could watch the light show. It was a cold night, so they all were huddled up together to watch it. 
  • At some point, Annabeth and Percy moved away to watch the show, wanting to be alone for awhile. They knew this vacation was about their friends, but they needed some time alone.
  • The third day, they went to Hollywood Studios. Hazel got sick after they went on Rockin’ Roller Coaster. Her and Frank went to watch a show while the others went on again. 
  • They spent a lot of time where the Starwars attractions were. Jason, Leo, and Percy were enjoying themselves and taking pictures with a Storm trooper. 
  • That day, they got seven more pictures, their total now twenty two pictures. 
  • From this park, Hazel got a stuffed Director Mickey, Annabeth got a clapperboard, Leo and Percy got BB-8 cup, Piper got a Minnie Mouse bag, Jason got a  Storm Trooper figurine, and Frank got an Indiana Jones Mickey.
  • The final day, they went to Animal Kingdom. They were all excited to see the animals that they had on the reservation. 
  • The girls were able to hold birds on their arms and the guys took pictures of them. 
  • They went on all the rides, especially Mount Everest. They were all excited to go on that. 
  • Piper and Jason were able to sneak away to see some butterflies while the others watched a show near the exhibit. Then Jason went to buy Piper a pearl when she went off to the bathroom.
  • Their photo count went up to twenty-six by the end of the day.
  • That night, they went back to the hotel and relaxed by the pool and hot tub. They were enjoying their last night in Disney. 
  • The plane ride home, they were all disappointed to leave. It was four days that they wouldn’t forget in a long time.

Thirdly, we shall discuss Hunk. 

The last we see of Hunk is this. 

Like Lance, poor Hunk is stressed and ready to get the heck away from Zarkon and his Galra Empire. But, we all know how that turns out, so let’s take a look at what Hunk was doing before the inevitable disaster. 

Let’s start out with this. Hunk was AWESOME! 

He came up with the idea on how to free Allura, and proceeded to do so confidently. Something Hunk seems to struggle with. 

He proceeded to then crash straight into Zarkons ship and blast the Galra Soldiers to smithereens, freeing Allura. THEN he was a huge part of saving Shiro. 

I feel as though we can somewhat ‘safely’ conclude that, though Hunk will definitely be shaken, he should be relatively fine. But, that is not to say we all shouldn’t be worried about our favorite yellow paladin.

Next up? Pidge!

LARPing means so much to me. It may seem geeky or lame or have a nerdy rep, but let me tell you, since beginning this crazy hobby? sport? cult? I have become fitter, stronger, and more outgoing. I’ve made countless friends, furthered my skills (like sewing, woodwork etc), and it’s given me a reason to get excited about something every week. It allows me to get away from the stresses and pressures of real life, which is a rare kind of blessing and I’m happy with the person I’ve grown to become. I’ve finally found ‘my thing’ and I’m never gonna give that up.

So, he decided that it would be good for the two of you to take a break together for the weekend, to get away from all of the stress and just spend time together. He takes you camping to a remote location outside of the city and you spend the weekend together under the stars.

I’ve got a HP Theory...

So I just finished reading Harry Potter and Chamber of Secrets for the second time and it got me thinking….why do we all presume that Salazar Slytherin was the only one to have his own secret hiding place/extra addition to the school? I bet Rowena wanted a nice place for people to go to either go and study or get away from all the stress so she created the Room of Requirement.

Helga loved being out in nature but hated being around Godric and Salazar when they were fighting so she found the one place where she could bury herself. She built the Shrieking Shack underneath the Whomping Willow because she was the only one that was ever nice enough to fertilize the tree properly and cut off it’s deadest branches that were weighing it down. She was hoping if other kids learned to look past the tree’s brutal nature they could come to love the hiding place too.

Godric just wanted an easier way to move about the castle without Apparating…so he created all the fun tunnels that were leading in and out of the castle. No one could obey the rules forever right? In his mind he thought people would expand upon them which they did. Turned out to be a good thing for everyone.

I don’t know, i think it’s something cool to think about. Just thinking about them all hiding away from each other trying not to get caught adding in new additions to the building, it’s a fun thought.

Part 6

Fandom: Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Pairing: Kylo Ren x Reader

Warnings: A bit of fluff, a bit of feeling possessive

Author’s Note: I think it’s time for me to write a master list for this story…which will be done soon. Here is part 7! Hope you enjoy!

Part 7

Deep down below the base there was a cantina that only a select few knew about–a place where people can get away from the realities of war for the night and relax as they had a few drinks. A fellow co-worker tipped you off as they saw you walk around in boredom. Perhaps they felt bad for you that you worked for Kylo Ren.


That night you decided to check it out, if only to get away from the stress for a few hours. Your outfit was simple; a pair of black pants with laced-up boots and a black tank. The only color you wore was a sage green necklace your grandma gave you before you left. You touched the tiny beads wondering how she was on that small plant you abandoned. You might of found her ways annoying, but once in a while she would pop into your head to wish her good health.

You took a map of how to get to the cantina before you exited your room.  There were many twists and turns as you made your way down, even secret lift–it was kind of a pain. Before you knew it you heard uplifting music coming down from the hallway. As you entered you saw that it was a circular room with a bar in the middle in a “U” shape, in the middle was the band that made a few dance. There were creatures that you had never seen before; some large, some small, some with long necks…

“Where did  everybody come from?’ You asked yourself as you sat at the bar to order a drink from a balding man.

At that instance, you felt a pair of eyes watching your every move. You whipped around and saw that nobody was paying any mind to you. Was it just your imagination?

Just as the large drink was placed in front of you, a young man appeared out of nowhere making you jump out of your seat.

“Hey, you’re that lady who works for Kylo Ren, aren’t you?”

You glanced at the man as you took a hold of your glass; you had never seen him around the base before, though it was not surprising since there were so many people. You took a sip of your drink, wincing a bit from the bitterness, before sitting it back down.

“Yes. As his personal mechanic–”

“A lot of people are talking about you.” He said with a big smile. This got your full attention.

“Oh? I didn’t realize I was famous.” Your cheeks turned a slight red, though you didn’t know if it was the sudden attention or the alcohol at work.

“A bit.” He continue to smile as he started to get uncomfortably close making you shift away. “How is it?”

“How is what?” You felt the muscles in your face tense up and your hand squeezed around the glass before taking a big gulp. You felt those burning eyes again, but it wasn’t from the man sitting next to you. You tried to ignore it as you took another drink.

“Hey! Give the lady another drink, well you? On me.” The man grinned at you. It was obvious what his intention was. “How is working with Kylo Ren? Is he really difficult to work with?”

You shrugged.

“I guess. You just need to know how to handle him.”  It has been a while since the last time you had a drink so it didn’t take you long for the room to start spinning, and you started to regret taking that second drink.

“Really now?” He snaked a arm around your shoulders as he leaned into whisper. “You think you can handle me?”

That was enough. You stood up from your chair and away from him, but not without your drink.

“I gotta go. But thank you for the drink.” You raised your glass in thanks, taking everything you got not to break it over his head. You turned away from him and stomped off. You felt the alcohol surge through your veins after finishing the beverage and you knew it was time to go. You couldn’t believe that you were already stumbling through the club, weaving around both humans and other species. The club became so full that it seemed like you were in a sea.

Where was the door?

Finally you were free from the circus of noise, but the environment was still spinning making it hard for you to take another step. A hand fell on your shoulder making you whirl around and punching the person across the face, but not without falling over.

Strong hands grabbed you before you could fall on the ground. You looked up to glare at the person to see that the hood had fell back slightly enough to see the face of the person who held you.

“Oh shi–Kylo. I didn’t kno–I wouldn’t of–” You felt ice cold fear as he looked at you with his dark eyes. When he smirked it confused you. You were sure he would be angry with the welt you gave him, but he seemed more amused by your state.

“Why are you here?” You swiveled in his grasp which made him grip you harder.

“Not important now.” With one swift movement he whipped you up from your feet and held you bridal-style. You tried to fight against him. “I can’t let my personal mechanic walk in your state. People will talk.”

Defeated, you put an arm around his shoulder to keep yourself steady as he begin to walk away from the cantina.

He knew his way around the back hallways where nobody would see you the two of you–which made you feel somewhat insulted in your drunken state. As he walked on, you felt your eyes start to get heavy and your head somehow found it’s way on his shoulder. You ignored the his tense body as you felt yours relax against his, your mind wandering the past few weeks you had with him. You couldn’t stand him at first, he would break everything you fixed. But now, something was different but you couldn’t put your finger on what.

You looked up at him, his hood back around his face, though you can still see his nose and his lips. You had no idea what came over you, nor if you would ever remember your actions, with your other hand you placed your hand against his cheek, which made him stop in his tracks to look down at you. Before he could say anything, you stretched up, your lips inches away from his. For just a small moment your lips touched before you passed out.

****

Carefully he laid you on your bed, no movement or noise would be able to wake you up from your deep slumber. For a moment, Kylo watched you, his lips still burning from your simple touch. It was like a new fire was burning inside of him, a desire that was now at it’s peak. It angered him. He was not suppose to feel this way, a Sith in training. Only anger and hate was suppose to make him stronger, but not love–love would make him weak.

Kylo only followed you to the cantina to see if you were, indeed, trustworthy. But as he watched you in that smoky club he couldn’t help but feel haterd for the man who sat by you–and when his arm incased you in his arms… If it wasn’t for you walking away he would of made himself known to the entire cantina.

He leaned in close to you, his mouth close to your ear as he whispered;

“Don’t you know that I can kill you with just a flick of my wrist?” His gloved hand curled up into a tight ball. “You make me want to betray everything I learned, everything I worked so hard to get. Why?” He punched the mattress that you laid on which only made you turn away from him.

You were so fragile and venerable in your sleep, you probably wouldn’t know what happened. But he couldn’t take your life. Reaching out, he pulled strains of hair from your face so he can gaze upon you once more.

“I suppose this means I should make you mine.”

Push Me Away - Alec (part 1)

long Alec x reader fanfic series; I was thinking of Alec being best friend the x reader and they like each other but can’t express their feelings. But when Lydia comes Alec becomes very distant, pushes away the reader. Alec decides to marry Lydia and the reader and him have a huge argument and hurt each other. Than the reader decides to leave the institute but get captured by vampires and is tortured because she won’t tell them where the mortal cup is. So the team try and rescue her. Thanks xxx

Push me away part 1

“I’ll race you to the kitchen!” You say taking off down the long halls of the institute with Alec following behind you. You look at him as you run, everything is kind of a blur, but you could see he was laughing. You and Alec had been messing around a lot lately, trying to get away from all the stress of Valentine, and the mortal cup, and a Clave member coming, the lost went on and on.

You sped up to pass him, and he dropped back behind you. You were about to reach the kitchen when you felt a big strong pair of long arms wrap around your waist and pull you off the ground. You looked up to see Alec gently setting you on the ground before he took off running.

“Hey!” You yelled. You laid there for a second knowing there was no possible way for you to win. After a minute or so you got up, then slowly and silently crept into the kitchen.

Alec’s back was facing you and he was talking to Izzy and Jace. They saw you, and you raised your finger to your lips, signaling them to keep quiet. Within the next second you ran up and jumped on Alec’s back, wrapping your arms around his shoulders and your legs around his waist. He tensed up.

“You cheated” you whispered in his ear. He realized it was you before sliding his hands down onto your thighs to support you. You let your legs unravel from his waist.

“Did I?” He asked with a smirk. “I demand a rematch later” you whispered. “If I must” he says with a sigh. “I’m going to go shower, when I’m done, we’re starting this back up” you said hopping off him and walking back to your room.

After a minute or so of just standing there smiling, Alec sat down. Jace and Izzy kept staring at him smiling. “What?” He asked. “Just ask her out already!” They both shouted in unison. Alec rolled his eyes.

“She’s my best friend, she wouldn’t go for it” he said shaking his head. “Yes she would! Anyone can see she’s head over heels for you!” Izzy yelled. “Trust me, she would say yes” Jace added. “Whatever, I don’t have time for this” Alec said getting up and walking out.

Meanwhile, you were washing your hair, thinking about your best friend. ‘God I love that boy, I wish he was mine’ you thought to yourself. Izzy was right, you were head over heels in love with her brother.

When you got out of the shower, you got dressed and dried your hair. You got geared up to do some weapon training with the eldest Lightwood sibling, then walked out to go talk to him. He already had his bow and all his gear on. There was something different about him though, he was acting odd. Kind of nervous.

“Hey, I’ve been looking for you” he says. “Looks like you found me” you say smiling. “I’ve been wanting to ask you something for a while now” he says rubbing the back of his neck. “What is it?” You asked shyly.

Your mind suddenly filled with thoughts of what he might ask. Would he ask you to be his girlfriend? Your heart started racing, red color flooded your cheeks.

“D-do you want to um, p-possibly, go out-” he started before a loud noise silenced him. You both turned your head and watched as the institute doors flew open.

Before you knew it Valentine began to emerge from the other side of the door. Others gasped, while you instantly pulled one of the knives out of your thigh holster and threw it at the man. One of Alec’s arrows followed closely behind it.

The monster caught both of them, then began pulling up his sleeve. You grabbed another one of your knives and began rushing over. Alec grabbed you and pulled you behind him. He set another arrow and aimed.

Valentine pulled out his stele and went over a rune on his arm. Suddenly, he was no longer Valentine, but a woman with medium length blonde hair pulled back into a tight ponytail and blue eyes.

She began walking closer and Alec moved his bow down. “That reaction was abysmal, except for you two” she said pointing to you and Alec. “I’m Lydia Branwell, envoy from the Clave”
