actualplanetpluto  asked:

Hey Elise. Just had to hear nearly my entire family laugh at the idea of asexuality which apparently 'doesn't really exist'. Can I please have some romantic but ace Enjoltaire? Sorry to bother you

  • Enjolras never thought much about not experiencing sexual attraction, it was just an interest he didn’t have and nothin more
  • Of course he’d get annoyed whenever his parents would be like “We’re not really comfortable with you ~~working~~ with girls alone in your room
  • And Enjolras was just sitting there like “…. I’m the definition of a golden gaytime mum…. why must you….. also what the fuck”
  • Not that he said that out loud but the thought was there
  • It’s only in highschool that he discovered there was a word for what he felt or rather didn’t feel. And thought he didn’t feel like he was broken, he understood that other people felt that way too, and they could be lost and unaware and alone, so he started reaching out online and raising awareness (with more or less success)
  • Then at uni he started the ABC as a social justice group and LGBTQIA+ safeplace and he met lovely people with whom he could change the world and that guy Grantaire sure was annoying but also sort of cute?
  • And Enjolras never made his stupid crush known, because Grantaire kept talking about his one night stands with Courfeyrac, so he figured R wouldn’t be interesting in dating /HIM/
  • But of course Grantaire is very interested in dating him
  • He alluded to it often, but Enjolras thinks it’s just teasing and general banter, not serious flirting
  • Until the day Enjolras explodes from unresolved romantic tension, which turns into very resolved romantic tension
  • When people ask why it took so long for Enjolras and Grantaire to get together, since they look so great as a couple, the answer is:
  • “Slow and steady won that ace”


“Ugh, stay away from Niall.” Your cousin, Y/C/N whispered, glaring at the golden-haired boy. Your mum was fairly close with Maura, so it was only reasonable that the Horan family came over for the Christmas party.

“Oi, don’t say that, it’s Christmas!” You nudged her shoulder and earned yourself an eye-roll as she took a sip of punch. 

“S'not my fault he’s a creep. I swear to god he’s like in love with me or something.” She sniffed, flicking some hair off her shoulder. 

“Oh yeah, you can tell he’s totally infatuated with you with the fact that he’s been staring at Y/N for the past ten minutes, you dimwit.” Another one of your cousins waltzed over with a smirk on her face, making Y/C/N’s cheeks burn bright red and mumble something about getting another drink. 

“Cut it out.” You giggled to Y/O/C/N (your other cousin’s name), sneaking a glance at Niall, who quickly turned away once you caught sight of him. 

“Who wouldn’t want a piece of that fine ass, anyway?” Y/O/C/N swiped her tongue over her bottom lip, your eyes crinkling up as laughter bubbled out of your ruby-red lips. 

“T'at was cute.” You were surprised from the sudden deep accent that appeared behind you, Y/O/C/N gasping quietly and pinching your arm. 

“Oh! Niall, hi!” You cleared your throat, grinning down at him. “Refresh my memory, what was so cute?” You looked around the room and you couldn’t help but notice Y/C/N sending daggers from across the room. 

“Your laugh.” Your cheeks turned a light shade of pink as you giggled softly, fiddling with your necklace. “It was really cute. But of course, only a cute laugh like t'at would belong t’ a cute owner, eh?" 

"You’re quite the charmer, aren’t you?” You asked, setting your drink down. 

“Mm, only around you, m'dear. Care to dance?"

~*~Home Hearth and Heart’s 600 FOLLOWERS Giveaway 4/4 ~*~

Hello, Devotees!  Your Mod at Home, Hearth, and Heart is giving away four premade altar set-ups in celebration of reaching 600 followers.  Here is the fourth and last one!

Altar Details:  "Sicilian Summer”

It’s late August, and the bees are buzzing lazily in the meadows.  Wheat waves in a breeze from off the coast, and in the distance, you can just make out the green shadows of vineyards, grapes dark purple-black and ready to be picked.  Sit down to an early afternoon siesta with a nice cup of coffee or a glass of Nero d'Avola and listen to the sounds of an island summer in your own forgotten corner of the world.

This altar setup features the following items:

  • One 24"x25" cloth, crushed velour, wheat-colored.
  • One 8”-diameter flower crown: wire core and golden-yellow silk mums with late-summer green leaves wrapped in florists’ tape, then wrapped again in green-brown homespun-style yarn.  Suitable as an altar decoration OR for ritual headwear.
  • One 3"-tall glass candle-holder, silver-gold antiqued finish, suitable for holding tea lights, votive candles, or liquid offerings.
  • One 6.5"-diameter ceramic trivet with blue, green, red, and white floral design.  Made in Turkey; useable as a flat offering-dish or decorative/meditative focus.
  • One unscented 8" white pillar candle.
  • One string of indoor-outdoor lights that look like white and purple grapes.  Extension cord not included.  Fits across most windows.
