look, if you’re looking for a perfect (or near-perfect) adaptation of “pride and prejudice,” definitely go for the 1995 miniseries. it’s a wonderful miniseries with colin firth, and book purists love it for a reason. but, as a movie, as an experience, as a thing that generally turns me into a squeeing, mushy pile of goo that believes in true love… the 2005 movie OWNS. MY. ASS.
The last Chapter of Fairy Tail comes out in Japan on 26 July, so we (maybe) get NaLu kiss on NaLu Day!!! I CAN'T BREATH!!!
So I’ve been told, that’s very cool (must be fate).
I wouldn’t hold your breath for a kiss. I’m not sure I want a kiss, a forehead touch or them holding hands would be great to me! Some things are more intimate than a kiss, and the forehead touch is so tender it would send my heart-a-flutter.
Perhaps a forehead kiss?
I think my shipper heart would burst. That would be so, so, sweet <3
So, you want to work out. But, oh no! You’re feeling a little unmotivated? You don’t know where to start? It isn’t always helpful to hear “just do it,” even if it’s a little bit true. There are times where we all feel unmotivated and that’s why we need to be dedicated, let out a deep sigh, and just do it.
It’s more mental than physical. Now, I know what you’re thinking. I know exactly what you’re thinking.
How do we become dedicated? It can take weeks to months for a habit to solidify so how do we break down a few of these mental barriers to even get there in the first place?
You don’t need a gym: A lot of people get stuck on “where” before “how” and there are a number of reasons why a gym membership is actually an inconvenience or out of budget for many individuals. There are also people who find the gym absolutely boring. That’s fine! Our bodies already come equipped with cardiovascular machinery and can be used as a resistance tool. Our own homes, parks, and backyards are perfect places to workout and with the addition of a few small, affordable tools you can even up to ante without ever setting foot inside a gym.
Small steps before big leaps: If you’ve never worked out before or simply need to get more active in general; then don’t worry too much with whipping your ass into a protoplasmic pile of goo quite yet. We’re all beginners at some point in time, and you need to let yourself be a beginner. The risk of injury is high for a beginner and that’s the biggest mood killer of them all. Don’t pop in a “Maximum Hardcore Power Shred 9000X²” DVD and expect to come out of that experience with a positive outlook on the days and weeks to come. You probably have some idea of where your fitness level is at, so be generous and be forgiving. For some people, fitness starts simply at taking more stairs and walking longer distances around town and that’s absolutely great.
Write out a plan for the day: At night, I often write in my phone’s little “sticky note” application what I want to do at the gym tomorrow morning and what weight, sets, and reps I may want to attempt them at. Not only will it help you zone in and focus on the task, but you’ll be thinking about your workout in advance as well. Having a plan will reduce the number of “unknown variables” so you can just get started and stop second guessing yourself, a life-saver for the anxious.
Set out your workout clothes and supplies the night before: No matter when you’re planning to workout, just be ready well in advance. Don’t get stuck in a situation where you’re frantically trying to slap things together, getting stressed out, and only to discover your shorts are dirty and your water bottle has mysteriously been stolen by gremlins.
Try a different time of day if you’re stumbling with your current one: This one is dependant a lot on personality and the mercy of your schedule and home life. Understandably, some people have less flexibility so it’s not always possible to switch time slots around. This was personally my biggest game changer, though. I used to workout in the evening but by the end of a day my “introvert battery” was clocked and more times than not I said, “it’s blanket time.” Morning is my favorite time of day and I’m fresh when I wake up, so I started going in the morning. It sounds obvious but it honestly was the best thing I ever did.
Find an exercise that genuinely excites you: The best workout is one that is fun for you to do, not the one that burns the most calories. Don’t waste too much time on running if you’d rather have your toenails ripped out with a pair of rusty pliers. There are a million ways to get a workout, so shop around!
Switch it up and be open to trying something new: Having a game plan in place certainly is a pillar of success, but a good dose of spontaneity can give you that twinge of excitement you’re looking for and even introduce you to new workouts you never guessed you’d like. Personally, I’d love to try a Zumba class sometime!
Try a podcast or audiobook instead of music: Only continue your playthrough a little before a workout, while working out, and a little after a workout. If you’re getting somewhere juicy, guess what? Gotta workout.
Do something if you’re not up for everything: Making a good habit and becoming dedicated isn’t about having all cylinders firing at max 24/7. That is the key difference between motivation and dedication. If you don’t feel like challenging your personal records today, that’s fine. Pick a comfortable intensity, pick a nice small chunk of time. Also, going for a walk is an absolutely marvelous workout. It counts. It all counts. Feeling like a shut in today? Keep a jump rope and a yoga mat around. Build a list of Youtube videos you could do on that rainy day. Get some bodyweight routines in or jog in place a little. If you’re sore, just stretch. Doing a little bit of anything will uphold your habit and your dedication. Some days we achieve, other days we survive.
Sometimes rest days are announced, not planned: If you’ve been getting into the swing of things but wake up feeling sick, exhausted, or have unexplained pain take the rest if you really think you need it. You’re not “skipping the gym,” if you seriously need the rest. Try as we might to have a super tight plan, sometimes we have unexpected issues. Rest is also necessary.
@unfcking Ask and you shall receive! I hope you find something helpful here.
After writing headcanons about Ivar with only daughters, I wanted to write some ideas about Ivar during his wife’s pregnancy (well, first pregnancy at least, you know there’s gonna be tons of babies though haha)
-When he finds out, his first emotion is shock. He’s going to be a father? Him, the cripple who was told he would never get that? The shock then melts into elation. Odin above, he’s going to have a child! Someone to carry on his legacy, his bloodline! But everything boils down into paralyzingly fear. Will he be a good father? Will the child be crippled like him? Will his love die giving birth? The questions are too numerous and he feels like he’s drowning.
- He definitely withdraws for the first little while. He doesn’t know how to process his fear, so he pushes his lady away. He spends a lot of time thinking and brooding and praying to the gods. Eventually, he sees how his withdrawn behaviour is hurting his wife (though she doesn’t say anything, she knows her husband needs time), he begins to once again grow excited about the coming babe.
- The prayers, however, do not cease. He prays for a healthy child, for the gods to spare him or her the infliction he suffers. He prays for a good birth that his wife survives. He prays that he will be a better father than his was. He sacrifices as often as he can, as well, just to be sure.
- And he hovers. Oh how he hovers!! He barely lets his wife out of his sight. He follows her absolutely everywhere. When he can’t be with her, he makes sure she has a companion or a trusted slave with her at all times. It annoys his wife to no end, but she indulges him, as she knows how scared he still is.
- He also gets even more touchy feely and possessive than normal. He often places a hand on her growing belly and glares at any man in the hall who dares to let their gaze linger too long on his wife. In the privacy of their chambers, he loves to run his hands over her belly and talk softly to it. He showers it with kisses and love and often falls asleep resting against it.
- He is is initially hesitant about have sex with his pregnant wife, as he fears he will hurt the baby. But the sight of his love growing swollen with his babe becomes too much for him to handle, and one night he simply snaps. He is careful to be gentler than normal, and when nothing bad happens afterwards, he happily allows himself to indulge in his newly discovered breeding kink as much as his wife will allow him to (which turns out to be quite a lot, his lady love is often hungry for him).
- There is a lot of arguing over baby names. His wife thinks they should name the babe after one of his parents, he thinks there should be no ties to names that carry such heavy weights on them. They fight about this right up until the baby is born.
- He doesn’t care if it is a boy or a girl. Children are blessed and precious and he’ll love and protect it no matter what it is (he secretly hopes for a daughter, a little girl with her mother’s eyes and his iron will).
- He constantly is bringing her food. I mean, all the bloody time. He wants his child to come out strong and healthy, so his woman will be well nourished, damn it! His wife eventually yells at him to stop “or the baby will come out walking like a grown child!”
- He is seriously the most attentive husband though. He rubs her feet, helps her bathe, combs and braids her hair. Behind closed doors, he turns into a mushy pile of goo, just so full of love and awe for this amazing woman and the gift growing in her womb.
- When she goes into labor, he doesn’t leave her side, despite the protests from the midwife. He lets her crush his hand and swear at him, wipes her sweaty forward and lets her rest against him between contractions. And when that first wailing cry pierces the still night air, his heart falters and his hands tremble.
- He’s scared to hold the babe, scared to even look at it. But his wife gently coaxes him to hold out his arms, and when he feels the weight of his child in them he wants to cry with joy. He looks at the little face, with her mother’s eyes staring back at him, and if a tear slides down his cheek, nobody has to know. He kisses her tiny nose and whispers a prayer of promise, of love and protection.
He is a father now, and he will do right by his daughter.
- “She’s so tiny, and strong, and beautiful. When can we get started on the next one?”
BTS Reaction #29 - He sees you sleeping with a stuffed animal that he bought you
May I have a BTS reaction please? He comes in and sees you sleeping with
a stuffed animal he bought you? Thank you in advanced😄😄😊💕
Seokjin: To him you were already the cutest thing on the entire planet. When he saw the small fuzzy plushie squished to your chest that he had bought for you while on your he wouldn’t be able to wipe the smile off his face.
He’d probably flail around, dancing the happy energy out, then taking thousands of pictures of you until he accidentally woke you up with one of his squeals.
Namjoon: He’d smile down fondly at you asleep on the couch with the teddy stuffed animal smashed against your face.
/What a cute dork. They almost look like they’re suffocating though…/
He’d step closer cautiously only to jump back with a start when you let out a loud snore. Unfortunately he’d land on the coffee table and break the glass top, waking you up from your peaceful sleep and probably cutting his foot a little.
“Well you looked super cute before I woke you up. Just to let you know. I’m glad I bought that for you…”
the other members are below the cut due to length~
I’m sick and you know how when you get really sick you stop thinking clearly? I was just thinking about how that would look to aliens.
“Human Carol, why did you just put Xarellian Sap in your kaffe?”
“Aw crap,” Carol sighed as they watched her cup dissolve in a smoking pile of goo. “Sorry about that Thrawn. This cold is just hitting me hard, y'know? I feel like crap and I can’t think straight.”
“Human Carol, if your cognitive function is impaired due to a bio-pathogen, we must rush you to med-bay immediately! ”
“Naw man I’m fine. No, really! No need to be alarmed! I just have a cold Thrawn, this is kinda routine for us. Like I get the flu at least once a year. Um sorry, that’s like 3 times a standard cycle? I think? Whatever.”
“Human Carol, you are significantly impaired now. It seems that your cognitive function is deteriorating rapidly! We must get you to med-bay now!”
“No its OK Thrawn, really. A couple days of hot soup and sleep and I’ll be fine. Really. I just need to go back to bed.”
“You just walked into a door Carol.”
Carol just hand flap waved at Thrawn dismissively as she staggered out into the hallway back to her quarters.
“Humans are so strange.”
Greetings shippers! Anyone else super pumped for Conan Movie 21: Crimson Love Letter and super jealous of anyone living in Japan right now (cause honestly when is the international release date, huh)? One vote from me.
Anyhow, since I have many things to procrastinate on and a lot of time to feel sorry for myself for waiting for fictional couples to get on with it, here is the count of every FAILED Confession by our favourite Detective of the West! … And some of my comments, but who cares about them!!!
Have you ever just wanted to hear Mark make odd noises? He’s so quiet that usually you only hear the sounds he wants you to, right? Like his voice when he speaks or his laughter when he finds something funny. The best way to elicit a squawk out of him is to surprise him. Sneaking up behind him and squeezing his butt is a…wonderful way of doing this ;). He’ll probably whip around and stare at you with wide eyes, mouth slightly agape, holding his butt almost protectively after your assault. A little, surprised laugh will fall from his lips as his mind wraps around the fact that you just did that. Mark will probably blush and get a little shy, but don’t think for a second that he won’t come for retribution. He’ll get you back when you least expect it. When he asks you why you felt the need to grab his butt and you answer that you like it, a beautiful thing happens! He blushes! Mark. Tuan. Blushing. That’s what we call art ladies and gentleman. This guy has the most beautiful blushing/shy face in my opinion. So enjoy it while it lasts. If you want to see that face more often, you’ll have to space out your butt attacks. Let him get comfortable and not be on the lookout for attacks from above. Trust me, it might seem gratifying to wait it out (I know, I love his butt, too), but it would be hella satisfying! I promise! *insert squealing noise* “Did you just?” “I did” *wicked grin on your part* *wide eyes continue* “Wh-jagi-I-why?” “Cuz it’s cute…and it was there.” *cue blushy face and little giggle*
The only thing I can say is make sure you are ready for the consequences. If you grab his butt, he might jump and turn to look at you like you lost your damn mind, but he’s loving the hell out of this. In fact, you would think that by grabbing his butt he would be the one blushing. However, Jaebum would turn the tables on you very quickly. I can imagine him cornering you before you have a chance to escape, arms on either side of your body, his leaning against yours, face to face, breaths intermingled. Yeah. Who’s blushing now? He’ll be the cheeky one who asks you what the hell you think you’re doing. When you say you like his butt and that’s why you grabbed it, he’s going to smirk and slowly, oh so very slowly, slide a hand down your arm and put your hand right back on his butt. He’ll tease you and ask something like ‘well? If you like that much go on’. The second you squeeze it again, he’ll have grabbed yours and squeezed tightly as well. Two can play this game and BOI, he’s enjoying it. In fact, he’ll like it so much that you might just find yourself on the receiving end of those grabs in the future! AND you might find that this cheeky bastard is going to bend over in front of you in all kinds of situations. He’ll wear pants that really accentuate his butt (and we all know about that JaeBUTTTTT. He ain’t even my bias!) all to make sure you zone in on it. Cheeky, cheeky, cheeky. You’ll be surprised though, that he can get really shy about it at times. If you decide to turn the tables and tease him he’ll lose his machoness and turn into a pile of goo. I highly encourage this. He’s got too much macho anyway. “Oh, you like my butt, Jagi?” *grabs yours tightly* “That’s so funny. I like yours, too.”
I followed close behind an angry Kol, struggling to keep up with how fast he was walking. We got to the house and Kol slammed the door open forcefully, mumbling something to himself. I frowned as I watched him walk to the liquor cabinet.
I had glitter all over my chest and I had spilled salsa down the front of my dress. Kol found me on top of some random frat guys kitchen island, dancing and having a stupid time.
The problem was that Kol got jealous easily and it was a pain in the ass, throw in a reservation date to a fancy restaurant I totally forgot about and you get and angry Kol trying not to be angry but failing miserably.
“Kol?” I said, my voice small for fear that he would yell. I hated fighting. “I’m sorry.” I looked down at my hands, blinking in shame.
“I know you are.” He glared. “You’d rather be doing something stupid with people I don’t even know than spending time with me.” He said. I frowned, the panic rising in my chest.
“Of course not. You’re the one who never wants to do anything with me.” I said, finding his eyes. I almost blushed.
“Can you please stop making everything about that?” Kol breathed out. I drew closer to him, my hand sliding up to his chest. “You’re drunk, let’s just forget about this and talk about it in the morning.” He swallowed.
“I’m not drunk, Kol.” I pushed off his jacket. “I just want you to show you how much I care about you.” I ran my hands up, cupping his face and kissing him. “And how much I’d rather be spending my time…” I breathed in between another kiss as I guided his hands around my waist. “With you.”
Kol pulled away, starting towards the stairs. “What’s your problem, Kol? Am I not good enough for your original status?” I glared, following him up the stairs. He stopped, turning to face me. “It’s really no big deal, Kol.” I made puppy eyes. “Don’t you want to fuck me?”
“No.” Kol gritted his jaw, looking into my eyes. He was obviously lying and I could tell with how hard he gripped the staircase railing and tried so hard not to turn me into a pile of goo, we both knew he could.
“Bullshit. You want me.” I grabbed his hand and he pulled away again, turning around and continuing upstairs.
I ran in front of him, holding my arm out to his stomach. “Hey, I’m talking to you, Kol. You can’t just push me away like this whenever you feel like it.”
“Get out of my way.” He said. I quickly wrapped my arms around him and kissed him, his mouth opening immediately at the familiarity. He didn’t kiss me back, instead he pushed me back.
I frowned again. I knew he could easily throw me out the window or kick me through the ceiling but he just continued rejecting me for his own wicked satisfaction.
“What’s your damage? Why don’t you just fuck me?!” I struggled to spit out the words in anger, my blood boiling as I grabbed his button up shirt in my fists. “You may not want to fuck me, Kol, but there were plenty of other men at that party perfectly willing to.”
His head snapped and I regretted the words as soon as I saw the look in his eye.
“You want to be fucked?” Kol scowled. He vamped me against the marble wall and I gasped, his hand wrapped around my neck, almost crushing my jaw. “I’ll fuck you.” He spat, jerking my dress up around my waist. In one swift motion his pants were around his ankles and he was inside me.
I clung onto him, my nails digging into his clothed back, I held the hot air in my lungs, if he had gone any faster I wouldn’t have been able to handle it. The feeling of every part of him inside of me as he held me against the wall.
His movements weren’t the least bit gentle or careful, he pounded into me relentlessly, burying his face in my neck, refusing me the propriety of looking into my eyes.
I was all I wanted anyways, he had built up a sturdy wall all these months refusing to be affectionate in this way, and now we stood in the crumbles of it.
He didn’t say anything, his breath was ragged and he let out grunts and growls, his death grip shifting from my throat to my ass. I cried out as he brought me into him with each quick and merciless movement.
I felt Kol beginning to coil up, his stomach pressed against mine, I held him as close as possible as he froze and came, letting out a choked groan.
He let me go and I leaned against the wall for fear that I’d stumble and fall if I tried to walk. I watched Kol as he fixed himself, my breathing shaky. He carried me to the bedroom. “I’m sorry, okay? I love you, darling, I didn’t mean to hurt you.”
“It’s okay. Just come here.” I hugged him, pressing a gentle kiss to his mouth. “I love you, Kol.”
Consider that instead of Oikawa always being the super smooth one that easily flusters Iwaizumi, that Oikawa is actually the easily embarrassed one.
Basically just several accounts of Oikawa trying to be smooth af but instead gets really embarrassed by what he says or is easily one-uped by Iwaizumi. (If you’ve watched Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun, think of him as Mikoshiba.)
Iwaizumi’s straightforwardness and his blunt way of saying things always catches Oikawa off guard and can easily melt him into a blushy mess.
It gets even worse when they get into a relationship together because nothing’s holding Iwaizumi back from saying all the things that he thinks about Oikawa on a daily basis.
Iwaizumi: “I don’t know why you’re trying to compare your looks to all the setters here, you’re easily the prettiest one.” Oikawa: ……. Hanamaki from out of nowhere: rip Oikawa, he lived a good life.
Oikawa talks a really big game, but Iwaizumi could just kiss his cheek or hold his hand and Oikawa has to turn his head to hide how red his cheeks have gotten from that innocent gesture.
Iwaizumi yelling out, “Nice serve, babe!” And Oikawa just blushing behind his hands.
Iwaizumi coming up behind Oikawa, smacking his butt, and Oikawa just squeals.
Sometimes Iwaizumi is so sincere that Oikawa doesn’t know how to process it other then turning pink and smacking his boyfriend, whining something along the lines as, “Iwa-chan! You can’t just say things like that when I least expect it…I’m supposed to be the smooth one here…”
I don’t know why, but the thought of Iwaizumi saying something like, “You makes it too easy, Tooru.” absolutely kills me. Especially if you imagine him smirking at Oikawa while holding his hips, making Oikawa feel like his knees are going to give out with how deadly a smirking Iwa-chan is.
Oikawa can manage to stay cool around his fans, but give him Iwaizumi and he’s just a big pile of goo.
Oikawa mumbling to Iwaizumi at some point, “I can’t believe I keep losing against you.” And Iwaizumi just laughs and says, “When have you ever won against me.” He’s sure to kiss Oikawa after that too just to prove his point as Oikawa starts blushing, pouting as he looks away.
I feel like Iwaizumi wouldn’t have an awareness to what he does to Oikawa at first, but when he does realize, he will very subtly test the different ways he can make his boyfriend get all blushy–words, little touches, small caresses, anything he can think of to get some color tinted on those cheeks.
Iwaizumi just randomly saying, “You’re so cute.” while Oikawa is in the middle of talking or something and Oikawa just dies.
The reason that Iwaizumi catches Oikawa so off guard is because he is just an honest person hands down. Oikawa knows that when he says something, he means it. It’s not something to boost his pride or spare his feelings, it’s 100% bonafide Iwaizumi being Iwaizumi and it just makes Oikawa melt inside because that’s his Iwa-chan, his Hajime, telling him these things with all of his honesty and he gets embarrassed because he just doesn’t know how to deal with someone who loves him so much and thinks he’s this special. All he can really do is just love him back just as much and appreciate the fact that he has someone like Iwaizumi in his life.
Ok so hockey players with kids is my downfall. Like
seriously. Grown macho men who beat on each other turn into piles of goo. It’s
the BEST! Anyway! ANDRE IS BACK PEEPS! I’m so happy! So today was a good day
for double Andre! Hope you guys like this one as much as I do!
Anon Request: andre
with children is the greatest thing in the world omg and you write it so
well!!! could you maybe write one where andre and his gf just had their first
baby and they bring him to a practice bc all the guys want to see him? idk
thats a pretty basic prompt so you can do whatever you want w it but basically
andre with his newborn would be adorable if youre ok with writing even more
“You should bring her to
practice. I’m sure the other guys would love to see her” Tom said, holding
the baby close to his chest. You smiled at the sight. Ever since you gave
birth, Tom was always at your apartment to spend time with the baby.
I might have gone a little overboard, I apologize. Especially with the word “Boo-boo”. I’m just imagining these grown ass men using it and cackling like a crazy person. ;)
Can you imagine? Like really imagine kissing his pain away? This bub is already shy, shy, shy! Let’s set the scene, yeah? He’s just done one of his fantastic flips, but instead of landing on his feet firmly, he stumbles and falls. Now he has a bruised knee! If you rushed over to him in worry, that first and foremost is going to make his heart flutter. The mere fact that you worry about him is enough to make him giddy, let alone when, after he insists he’s fine, you still lean forward and press a gentle kiss to his throbbing knee. I think his reaction would depend on what kind of relationship you have with him. If you are just his crush (I say just, but really can you imagine how freakin awesome it would be if he had a crush on you? Ugh, nope, I’m not biased at all!), he’s going to get really shy and giggly. You know that giggle, right? The one that’s hella adorable and just…omg melt me like some cotton candy in water! Yeah, that one! His face will probably turn a tint of pink and if the guys are there you can definitely expect some hoots and hollers. Mark is the type to appreciate the gesture for sure, albeit a little awkwardly. Fear not! This one will likely return the favor at some point. If you both have been in the relationship for a while, then you can expect him to probably either start laughing and ask you what you’re doing or to just simply coo happily at you. He’s a muffin, this guy! “Awww, baby, did you just kiss my boo-boo away?” *cue blushing you* “I think it’s sweet. Thank you, baby.” *and cue warm, cuddle hug*
Flustered. That’s it. Jaebum seems like the type to be well composed, right? I mean, we all know he’s a goober, but like, he’s still fairly well composed. You can kiss that goodbye…literally. Not only will he have the rest of GOT7 ‘ooo’ing and ‘aaaww’ing at the two of you, much to his embarrassment, but there’s also the fact that he’s still trying to process the fact that you actually kissed his injury. When he slipped during the dance battle with Yugyeom, he didn’t think you would kiss his smarting shoulder delicately. He’s tickled pink, as they say! That flustered expression on his face is just so adorable! I mean you are his crush and you just laid your lips on him! Of course, he’ll turn and snap at the other boys to go do something somewhere else, which will make it seem like you’ve upset him, but he’ll quickly reassure you that he appreciated and quite enjoyed your affectionate peck. So you have flustered Jaebum, right? Well, that’s not all! Jaebum’s a bit Tsundere, so even though he’ll say things like ‘You don’t have to do that’ or ‘Why are you like this’ deep down he’s thoroughly enjoying the moment. He’s someone who likes to bask in the affection and attention you shower upon him. I mean, of course, he would right? He only has a crush on you! He’s a sensitive guy….on the inside of course! “A-ah, you don’t have to do that, it’s really okay.” “Oh, well, I mean, if you don’t want me to, I guess I–,” *clears throat loudly, looking anywhere but at you* “I-I never said that!”
