gifts from dad


22.06.2017 • 

Look at my children, my plants, my beauties, they’re awesome. 
So from left to right you’ve got, Hank, Helena, Achilles and Patroclus. I got Hank as a small graduation gift from my dad and he’s very wholesome, as wholesome as a cactus can be. 

I ordered some sandals and I hope they arrive today, it’s been crazy hot here (crazy hot for the Netherlands where it’s never hot) and I’m dying. My aesthetic consists mostly out of turtlenecks and dark clothing so I need to switch it up a little to survive. So I bought myself some black (because of course they’re black) platform sandals to live out my hipster fantasy.


the lesbian aesthetic denim jacket is complete. (the fries pin says fries before guys, and the pride heart pin was a gift from my dad) 🌈

Bad Moon Rising [Modern!Kylo x Reader]

Summary: You somehow manage to get a flat tire in a bad neighborhood after your closing shift at work. An unlikely stranger is willing to help, as much as you’re unwilling to accept it.

A/N: Alright. Here’s my first go at this. I wanted to add more detail, but I think I’m going to end up making this into a short series (I already have part 2 written!) so I wanted to get through the inciting incident first. Hope y’all like it!

Warnings: Language.

The night was frigid and exceedingly dark, the heavy cloud cover blocking out any light from the moon. You hated working late, but that was exactly what you had done every day this week. Working late was one thing but working late in retail was another. At the end of a dayshift you could grab your stuff and leave. But a night shift just took it out of you. You had to restock and tidy up and didn’t end up leaving until an hour after the store had closed. Now you were exhausted and just wanted to get home, so you decided to take your shortcut. It would get you home faster but you had to drive through some sketchy areas first. During the day this wasn’t a problem, but now was nearly midnight and the city was basically dead. This route would get you home much faster, however, and all you could think about was getting in bed.

The Other Side of the Ocean


Rhode Island is for … friends

Taylor stops at the crosswalk, the two handles of the stroller firmly in her grasp, as she looks both directions for the absence of approaching cars. Blake stands next to her in a flowy white peasant dress, her hair tucked under a large wicker sunhat.

“Okay James,” Taylor says, as she pushes the two-year-old into the street, “we’re almost to the horsies!” Two-year-old James is curled up in her stroller, sucking on her thumb, wearing heart-shaped pink sunglasses, hair in a short ponytail, and a matching two-piece skort and t-shirt.

“Haw-sies!” James cries out, her thumb coming out of her mouth just long enough to cry out. “Haw-sies!” she says again, pointing across the street at the spinning carousel.  

Blake laughs and turns to Taylor as they reach the other side of the two-lane road. “It sounded like she said ‘hussies’!”

Taylor giggles and her eyes dance from behind her red-framed sunglasses. “That is on the *other* side of town,” she smirks. “I can take you there later if you wanna go…”

The two women laugh again, and as baby James overhears, she joins in with her mother and friend, giggling loudly too.

*Guardians Spoiler??*

Imagine Tony Stark Meeting Peter Quill for the first time with his “new” Zune:

“I’m sorry,” Tony couldn’t help but giggle through his clenched lips. He hadn’t exactly been welcoming to the “Guardians” of the Galaxy. Why should he be? They were a bunch of aliens with zero credentials, and according to the talking raccoon, a lot of enemies. But he just couldn’t help himself. The one Earth guy on their team, Peter Quill, was just so helpless. It was like house training Cap all over again.

“What is that?” The billionaire pointed at the small device in the man’s hand.

“Oh, you like it?” Peter nodded excitedly and waved his device at Tony. “Yeah, it was a gift from my dad.” He said with unearned confidence. “Says it’s the latest in Earth technology. Before this baby I was stuck on cassettes.” 

“Like tapes?” Tony wrinkled his eyebrows together. “I’m sorry, you only just came here from space right? You’re not like a time traveler or something?”

“Nope.” Peter smiled. “I’m just a hero. Like you.” 

Post 3 on Theories and Speculations for Lucifer 2x18

Another confusing rant of mine… 

If you thought that I have just one theory you will be greatly disappointed. This time I have plenty.

What we do know is that Henderson said that season 3 will deal with the issue of Identity.

As the writer has said: Season 3 is about identity. About who Lucifer is. Is he an angel? Is he the devil? And how do his wings growing back affect that? And why have they grown back? Who has done this to him? And what kind of plot is happening?

First the facts.

1) Lucifer is vulnerable around Trixie. In 2x18 we see two similarities with 1x04.  First Lucifer says ouch when Trixie places the bandage on his forehead. Then Trixie tells him that there are no mollies for wussies. When Lucifer is shot by Chloe she helps him walk to her car whilst calling him a wuss. Now there is also something else. In 1x04 Lucifer tells Chloe that he always tells the truth but not always the whole truth. In 2x18 Chloe replies to Lucifer that although he insists on telling the whole truth, he still does not tell the whole truth so he is hiding something. Do you see the pattern here?

2) Before Charlotte leaves she comes to a full circle with Lucifer. She calls him her angel and then she left. Therefore I couldn’t help but wonder. Can’t a Goddess forgive and provide redemption to the Fallen angel called Lucifer? Why should only Dad do that? She is a Goddess. Meaning that Mum might have reinstated Lucifer to his angel status with or without his wings.

3) The wings. Yes, you see these pearly beautiful wings yet a key concept in the episode is repeating the same thing. You cannot go backwards you can only go forward so why suddenly we see Lucifer going backwards and having wings.

4) Hector charred Ava but there is someone missing here. Chloe knows about Kathleen’s boyfriend is still on the loose. He is, after all, a cleaner… and Kathleen was way too emotional. So don’t be surprised if Kathleen’s boyfriend comes up in season 3. I remind you that we have an episode in Vegas with Lucifer, Candy and Ella.

Knowing all the above which are the theories we can extract from that?

Theory 1 (The one I favour most)

From the comics, we know that the wings can heal themselves. Meaning that even if Lucifer burned them they can regenerate themselves to their former glory. Now Lucifer used his light bringing and angelic power at the beach. Whilst Charlotte called him her angel and I suspect she might have redeemed him. So far so good.

What if during the sword’s ignition and Charlotte’s provided redemption, Lucifer’s wings wanted to merge with their owner? So imagine this. We have either an enraged Amenadial who realises that Lucifer has used the sword so he attacks Lucifer, or as Lucifer is leaving a voicemail Chloe might be actually close to the hospital. She might even have seen the scene of Lucifer being attacked and kidnapped. Yet even if she hasn’t that adds the possible attackers.

a) An angel can hurt another. Yet ALL the angels that have appeared in the show with a certain regality. Never in the shadows.

b) Fred, Kathleen’s boyfriend. Or even Kathleen herself. Yet the further episode credits do not include either of them. Still, Fred was not included in the guest stars. Additionally, certain guest stars or parts of the cast are added to the lists only AFTER the episode has been aired. Therefore we might see these two again. For me, the resolution between Kathleen and Chloe was not the best and Fred had to be caught.

c) A human that had nothing to do with the plot so far.

If the attacker is Fred, then it seems only logical to drive towards Nevada, Lucifer to be discarded for dead as a revenge for his relation to Charlotte and the wings might have found their way while Lucifer was left to die in the desert after possibly being thrown from the car which would explain the chapped lips and the lacerations on his skin.

This could also prompt the visit in Vegas for Lucifer and Ella without Chloe. So this theory ends with a very human villain and a rather interesting side-effect of the sword being ignited. Who knows perhaps the Sumerian book (Assyrian figures) was talking more about the Gods (In Assyrian figures only Gods have feathers) and could give an inkling that the one who ignores the sword also get a pair of wings. Why do I think that Lucifer’s wings have not spurted from his back and that they are his old pair? Because all his skin is full of wounds etc but his wings are pearly white. They have not come from inside his body. They are not bloody!

Now the kidnapping part is supported by two reasons. A) Lucifer might have been tortured. And his vulnerability troubles me. B) Him being barefoot implied that he was in the trunk perhaps. When you kidnap someone usually you take off their shoes in order to not try and open the trunk from the inside whilst kicking.

Also, remember that Amenadiel has some of his powers back. Meaning that Dad has partly redeemed him for his actions. Perhaps he decides he wants the full ride back. Perhaps in S3 Amenadiel wants to find his identity so much that he must come against Lucifer again or at least that’s what he believes he has to do in order to return home.

Theory 2

After the hit in the head, Lucifer is dreaming. We have seen Lucifer in the future episodes and his wings might have come back. This might also be a vision. I know that the writers are talking about the identity of Lucifer between being a Devil or an Angel but we have to admit that nothing is ever clear with Lucifer. Remember the hot scene in 2x12? Now that lead to a major disappointment.

Theory 2.1

Lucifer can also be in the Dreaming a place where is between worlds and it reminds me a lot of the comics actually. In short, he keeps his wings but he has to come face to face with his dreams and nightmares. Perhaps his action of leading Mum goes granted him a gift from Dad. We know that Dad is all for manipulation so by giving him back the wings he also controls him in a way.

Theory 3

Let’s pretend that Lucifer in the desert is a real thing. Why would he have so many cuts? Lucifer said that in war there are always casualties. I believe that Lucifer was one that night. Someone must have been really angry and we know that a new adversary is coming for season 3 by Tom Ellis. Yet we know nothing of who or what it is. Is it his issues with his identity on what he is or that there is someone really coming in season 3. There is an assistant which is credited for every episode that has released its cast for next season played by Carolyn Adair.  

Ending Notes:

I feel that I don’t have much to give you yet but I have the last note which I believe it prompts us to follow a certain pattern of thinking. As I have said before Lucifer is using its songs to give us hints.

The last song of 2x18 is The World is Unravelling by the Milck. This also fits Neil’s Gaiman’s Coraline book.

In Coraline, the girl understands that the last key of the puzzle is that the other mother could not create. She could only transform and, twist, and change (page 124). This revelation takes place when the time is unravelling. when the fairy world is unravelling. When were so the deconstruction of the elaborate world behind that small door? Now notice this. The lead, Coraline, as the time unravels and does the world she tries to find a way out whilst battling to control the key and then the door to get out.

This perhaps may mean that Lucifer is indeed trapped somewhere. Even in his own body as his wings have emerged and he does not know what to do about that. I remind you that Chloe was reading Coraline to Trixie in 2x06. I also urge you to make a correlation with the fact that Uriel could predict the future so perhaps the book was more than a nod to Nail. As we know from the book Coraline goes from a child to an adult, from a reader to the writer and perhaps in Lucifer’s case, this means that Lucifer is transitioning towards “adulthood” as well. Additionally, Coraline is about a girl who decides to play the game by her own rules and she does not intend to lose because she wants her world back the same goes for Lucifer as well.

He knows there is a plan and he knows that his Father moves His pawns around but when he decides that he will play the plan in his own terms and he will let Chloe into the game, the game changes. He now has wings and whatever that means for him and his intention to move forward. Now in Coraline, the button mother distorts things that already exist which remind a bit of God in this case… Perhaps Lucifer as another Coraline will manage to escape and return back to his reality.  Finally, I would like to remind you that in the comics Lucifer is thought have created time itself. Of course, that’s an opinion which has divided its readers but I personally believe that to an extent.

But the above are mainly random thoughts which I urge you to keep while I move on to the song.

(Chloe tells him she knows who he really is)
Oh my, we must have got it wrong

(Lucifer visits Linda)
Falling skies, the storm is coming strong

(Lucifer ends his voice mail to Chloe and someone hits him from behind)
No one is coming out of this unscathed

(Screen fades to black as Lucifer faints)
No one could be ready

(Scene with Lucifer laying on the desert)
For this war and games

The lyrics say a lot but I want to stand on this one. As Lucifer said every war has its casualties and I believe that Lucifer might unknowingly also have started a war but not necessarily between him and Heaven. This lyric also supports my reasoning above. Lucifer tries to play the game according to his own rules and someone decided that if the rules are changing then Lucifer should too. Whether the wings are a result of Mum, the sword, them healing and being called from afar, Dad or even Amenadiel, Lucifer is now an Angel and for some reason, he is more vulnerable than ever. Yet he is also more powerful than ever. This means something very simple. A reality is distorted again and so is his identity. And when I say identity I don;t mean just his angel/devil status. No. I believe that the flashback episodes will give us a lot of information next season on certain aspects of Lucifer that we never thought they were possible. I now my favourite one. An impossible one perhaps but I’ll keep my faith and my silence until season 3 arrives. 

(Lucifer wakes up)
Oh my, we must have got it wrong

(Lucifer blinks)
The world is unravelling


Such a mad, mad reckoning

The world is unrav-rav-raveling

The New Kid

Pairing: Fem!JD x Fem!Reader

Request: Could you do Fem!JD X Fem!Reader? Cuz I’m a weird lesbian who wants some validation. Maybe soft kisses and smooth flirting? Idk. ~ Anonymous

Words: 501

Warnings: Bit of flirting


Sitting at the table alone you got weird looks from people. But you didn’t completely mind the looks, you were used to them.

“Is this seat taken?” You look up and nearly choke on your water. Right there in front of you stood one of the most beautiful girls you’ve ever seen. She had short curly hair, her ears pierced, tan freckled skin. She was tall compared to you. She wore black jeans, a dark green flannel and a black trench coat.

“No it’s not.” You responded before going back to your lunch.

“Great. Compared to these Diet Coke heads you seem like the most tolerable person here.” The girl stated. You probably should have felt a bit offended but you didn’t.

“Are you new? Im sure I would remember a face like yours around here.” You stated. But after realizing what you said you blushed. The girl noticed and smirked. Leaning forward on her elbows.

“Yeah I am. Now what’s your name gorgeous?” She asked, leaning back in her chair. Once again your blushed and she smirked. Was she actually flirting back?

“Y/N L/N.”

“Well greetings and salutations Y/N. The name is Jessica Dean. JD for short.

“Well what’s a badass looking gal like you doing here in Sherwood Ohio?” You asked.

“My dad’s work but enough about me. Tell me about yourself darling.


Together you and JD walked out of the school.

“Well this is me.” You pointed to the bus. JD looked at it with narrowed eyes, putting a cigarette in her mouth a lighting it. After taking a puff she looked at you.

“How about I give you a lift instead?” She suggested. Your eyes widened slightly.

“Really?” She smirked holding out her hand. Taking it she led you away from your bus. People gave the two of you odds looks but you didn’t care. Suddenly you both stopped in front of a motorcycle. “Woah! This is yours?” You asked as she got on. JD flicked her cig to the ground.

“Was a gift from my dad. So what’d you say?” She held a helmet out to you which you nimbly took. Strapping it on you got on the back. The motorcycle was revved to life. With you being scared you wrapped your arms around JD’s waist. She didn’t seem to mind as the both of you took off.


Getting off the bike you handed JD her helmet which she just hung on the handle.

“Thanks for the ride today. I really appreciated it.” You told her.

“Well you’re welcome. Next time though we’re stopping by 7 eleven.” You grinned. You were more than okay with that. “I gotta get going. See you around darling.” She stood up giving you a quick peck on the cheek before putting the helmet on. Revving up her motorcycle she sent you a smirk before speeding down the street.

The New Kid is something. You met her 4 hours ago and you already feel yourself falling for her.

The light of the Pearls- A Percabeth oneshot

Percy Jackson was in Elysium, visiting his childhood camp with the love of his life, going on a date when the grounds were quiet and calm. The sun was setting beyond the strawberry hills.

“Where are you taking me, Seaweed Brain?”

It’s been 7 years since Percy last slept in a cabin as a camper. He remembered the eventful years as he walked, dragging Annabeth by the hand.

“You’ll find out when we get there.”

He was in his best attire, a navy blue suit. Annabeth was in a long champagne dress that seemed to float around her as she walked.

He had asked her on a date, to remember the old times, he swore. When he showed up at the big house in a suit, Annabeth, who had been catching up with Chiron, realized that tonight was special.

Graphic Sweatshirt Friday

It’s chilly here again so I’ve had to dig out my hoodies and sweaters all over again. Thank goodness I have so many. This is from one of my favorite coffee places in Reno–a gift from my dad from last Christmas.

On that note, in about two hours I’m heading up to NYC to spend the weekend with my dad. It’s weird, I was in Reno a week and a half ago and now I’m seeing him again. Not used to all this father-daughter time! I’m happy to do it though: he’s been really really lonely this year since my mom and youngest sister are in Germany until August. Luckily, my other sister is coming home from college this weekend so he should be good after this trip.

My dad is doing the Five Boro’s Bike Ride on Sunday but that means I am going to run around Central Park while he’s out! I’m excited, I’ve been there but haven’t run it yet. I assume I’ll be the only person in the city to think of this so it’ll be totally empty, right? 

Speaking of running, we got absolutely hammered with rain last night into today and I ran through it this morning. It was raining hard as soon as I got onto the porch and then just…got worse. I felt EXTREMELY hardcore but came home completely bedraggled. I’ve run through heavy rain but near the end, it turned into something else. But I’ve been riding that smug runner wave all day so…worth it? At least it wasn’t cold. I don’t mind running in the rain that much but cold and rain, no thanks.

On Wednesday evening I went on a bike ride and a thousand gnats died from impact upon my body. It was so gross. How do people do it every day? I just tried to keep my mouth closed the entire time but still, ew.

Marathon training, week one starts in two weeks. I think I’m ready. September is the earliest I’ve run a fall marathon so I’m definitely training ALL summer long. Combined with two triathlons, I’m going to be doing all sorts of sweaty athletic things this year. Yay?

Please tell us about Grimdorks; we all love to hear

  1. Sometimes when Rose is super bored she’ll mindlessly knit some really long scarf out of habit, and when she runs out of the specific color and shade of yarn she was using that came with John’s knitting kit on her birthday John is more than happy to ship another ball of it to her.
  2. When nobody else is looking, in the privacy of his own thoughts, John imagines what it would be like to celebrate Love Your Wife Day and which qualities of Rose he’d shout about 
    1. (if you turn into a giant slimy horrorterror’s envoy then I’ll be proud because I’ll be the ONLY MAN ON THE PLANET WHOSE WIFE IS A REALITY BENDING SUPERHERO)
  3. Rose sometimes pokes fun at John because he’s so impressed by her mansion house and the untold riches Rose’s mom has showered her with, but John reflects that he also gets unwanted gifts from his dad and nanna ALL. THE. TIME. “Truly, your lot in life is so much worse than mine. Cake and cookies every day? Oh, the horror!” Rose says.
  4. WK has tried to purchase John on more than one occasion, out of ignorance toward the function of money, an innocent desire to give Rose things that she likes because he likes her, and general unawareness of human social dynamics.
  5. Yori is more than aware of John’s crush, but because John is so horrendously out of touch with his own emotions not even Yori can convince his son to confess his feelings. But he does try to nudge John toward being more open about his emotions in general.
