good luck to everyone else as well

Reasons to be happy today:

  • One night after a difficult mission made Bruce even gruffer than usual, his children gathered for a group complaining session that featured sarcastic Bruce-impressions and comments like “it would be nice to get positive feedback every once in awhile”
  • “I get that he loves us and all, but he could stand to show it” “Or say it, even. Never heard him do that”
  • At that point Cass, who had been sitting quietly, confused all of her siblings by replying, “He says that a lot”
  • See, Cass’s understanding of language is different. She reads body language, and it allows her to understand how people feel when they aren’t necessarily communicating it to others. Technically, Cass has never heard Bruce say “I love you.” But she’s certainly seen him say it many, many times
  • And since her siblings found that hard to believe, she set about proving it to them. Through the rest of the mission, every time she saw Bruce say “I love you,” she approached the nearest sibling and whispered “There”
  • [Bruce adjusts Damian’s cape on his way past] “There”
  • [Bruce rolls his eyes as Dick and Tim strike intentionally melodramatic poses on the rooftop] “There”
  • [Bruce hands Duke a granola bar when his stomach starts growling] “There”
  • [Bruce uses excessive force on a villain that came slightly too close to Jason] “There”
  • [Bruce tells off the collective JLA for unprofessional behavior while they openly ignore him and continue said behavior] “There”
  • [Bruce turns away from the truly impressive kick flip Cass used to incapacitate three separate combatants with absolutely no change in expression] “There. See? He’s proud”
  • The others aren’t totally sure they believe her, but if she’s right…. wow. That kind of changes everything
  • And since Bruce had no idea any of that went on, she’s free to continue. Whenever Cass sees that one of her brothers is feeling down, she follows them around to act as Bruce’s translator. Somebody has to do it, she figures

Too late…

Dating guide for leo
  • Aries x Leo: A hot and fiery fairy tale until it crashes for a period of time. If you can survive this crash then this might be the relationship you've always dreamed of.
  • Taurus x Leo: You'll both learn a lot from each other, but you're so friend-like with each other that this is likely to be VERY awkward.
  • Gemini x Leo: Intense, but in a fun and playful way. Could be either really good or really bad, but doubtfully anywhere in between.
  • Cancer x Leo: One word: YES!!!! You'll balance each other out perfectly and simply adore each other, forming a deep and personal relationship.
  • Leo x Leo: Maybe short term? Could make a pretty good learning experience for both of you.
  • Virgo x Leo: Provides balance at first, but gradually can decay if you don't put in a lot of effort to keep the relationship alive and well.
  • Libra x Leo: Cute, flirty, and probably quite sexy. The kind of romance that everyone ships in animes.
  • Scorpio x Leo: This could be so intense that it might even take the two of you of all people aback. Try to take things slowly at first and you’ll be fine.
  • Sagittarius x Leo: You’re two peas in a pot, but be careful not to let events get too far ahead of you and this could be an incredible fairy-tale romance that’s hot af at the same time.
  • Capricorn x Leo: Opposites attract…sometimes. This could either be really awkwardly cute or a total train wreak so good luck.
  • Aquarius x Leo: Yes please. It’s a bit unlikely to get started but could be so perfect if it works out.
  • Pisces x Leo: One of those relationships that the people in it love but everyone else doesn’t seem to understand why it’s working so well.

What is Kataang Week?

  • Kataang Week is when we, as a corner of the fandom, celebrate the ship Kataang! The prompts for Kataang Week 2018 were selected through six rounds of voting over the last several weeks and all prompts were submitted by Tumblr users.
  • To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Kataang being endgame, the mods decided to hold a 10-day celebration instead of the usual 7 days.

Cool, when is it?

  • Summer Kataang Week 2018 starts on Monday, July 30th - a little over seven weeks from today - and ends on Wednesday, August 8th.  We’ll also be holding an anniversary celebration on July 19!

How do I participate?

  • The most common ways to participate are by creating art or writing a fic and posting it online. Some people try and create something for every day while others only fill one or two prompts.  
  • Since we have more prompts and an anniversary day coming up this year, we want to reassure you that it’s perfectly okay not to do every prompt! We just hope to have lovely pieces to share on each day, especially on the anniversary.

But I can’t draw or write!

  • That’s totally fine - there are more ways to participate! You can sing a song, create a graphic, write a poem - just about anything really. You can also show your support by reblogging and liking other people’s contributions.

What are the prompts?

The following will be the running order for Kataang Week 2018:

       July 19 - Free Day/Anniversary

  1. Mythology - Monday July 30th
  2. Ballroom - Tuesday July 31st
  3. Family - Wednesday August 1st
  4. Affection - Thursday August 2nd
  5. Councilwoman Katara - Friday August 3rd
  6. Intertwined - Saturday August 4th
  7. Quirks - Sunday August 5th
  8. Desire - Monday August 6th
  9. Midnight - Tuesday August 7th
  10. Sacred - Wednesday August 8th

How should I tag my work?

  • The easiest way for us to find your work so we can reblog it to this blog is by using the tag “kataang week”. Using “kataang” and “kataangtag” also help. You must tag one of the three in your first five tags otherwise it doesn’t appear in the search.
  • Once we’ve reblogged it to this blog we add our own tags (a prompt tag and a user tag) for easy organization.  This means we can find all the work for one prompt or all the work from one user in one easy click (this also means that if you have changed your username since participating last year you need to let us know so we can update your tag!).

Can I post my stuff other places online too?

  • Of course you can!

Seven weeks is a long time away… why are you promoting all this so early?

  • To give people time to create quality content. In the past (and in other fandoms) we have seen ship weeks pop up out of no where with little to no notice and we just don’t think this works. We don’t know about you guys, but we need time to prepare! We also like to post WIP for Kataang Week and encourage everyone else to do so as well - we reblog it here for motivation!

As always, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, don’t hesitate to send an ask. Don’t forget to reblog this as well to help spread the word!

Good luck, Kataangers, and happy content creating! :)

earako  asked:

I know this may seem random but would you happen to have any tips for surviving the first day of university?

Bring snacks and make sure you have fluids to drink. Snacks are important. You never know when you’ll be able to get a break for food.

Figure out where all the bathrooms are.

Pack a phone charger.

Write down important things like teachers names. I used to remind myself of things like Proff S wears glasses. Proff Mads wears a lot of rings. It helped me to remember who they were, but also to think of them as people instead of terrifying entities who controlled the rest of my life.

If they hand out maps, study the maps.

And don’t be afraid to randomly be like “hey do you know where XYZ building is?” chances are someone else is lost too and you’re about to become their big damn hero by asking.

Also, remember that everyone else out there is also just trying to survive and figure out who they are, so don’t fixate too much on getting it right. You got time to grow and change, same as everyone else.

Good luck, and I hope it goes well <3

“No, like…. It’s just, I can’t believe you’re actually wearing my clothes.” Nurseydex b/c I know you love them.

Here’s something I should have answered uhhhhhh months ago. Sorry, lol. 

NurseyDex, 1.9k. Unbeta’d and barely read over, so sorry bout that lol. Technically fills @nurseydexweek Day 2! More under cut.


“And that’s the last bit of your integral chart. Don’t forget, quiz on Monday, test on Wednesday!” Before his professor could even finish reminding them about the upcoming assessments, Dex had packed up his stuff and bolted for the door. He had approximately three hours before his Python midterm, and six hours of studying to do.

And then, of course, right as he reached the front door of Founder’s, some guy coming out slammed into him, spilling hot coffee down his front. The guy huffed, and dropped his cup in the trash can. “Watch where you’re going, dude.”

Dex cursed, pulling his shirt away from his body. He wanted to cuss the guy out, do something, but he was already walking away by the time Dex got up the courage to tell him to go fuck himself.

I haven’t posted in so long… my summer course is wrapping up, I’ve had to deal with a bunch of administrative details of student loans, my health hasn’t been great and also, tonight I have my course enrolment for next year and I’m so stressed, hoping that the courses that I need still have space! (My campus is small and there are not many options… plus everyone gets different enrolment dates)

Hoping that all goes well… sending lots of luck and good vibes to anybody else who has finals or just a lot on their plates right now! 🌿✨

At the MTV Movie Awards. Dylan O’ Brien Smut.

Dylan O’ Brien/Reader

Y/N has just become one of the worlds biggest popstars. Her biggest challenge is performing at the MTV Movie Awards where she meets a certain Dylan O’ Brien.

Warnings: Mature, Smut.

I couldn’t believe it, in the space of a couple of months I had become one of the worlds most popular singing sensations. The attention was unbelieveable and the fans were incredible. The gigs had been small for the time being but I had yet to face my biggest challenge. Performing at the MTV Movie Awards. It was an honour to be asked, I mean this was my dream job, not for the money but for the music and the fans. I had a couple of hours to get ready and I wanted to look perfect.

“So, What are you planning on wearing tonight my little beauty?” My best friend of 7 years, Millie, asked me. I grin at her as I pull out my navy blue laced dress with the back cut low. “ I was thinking this is the one to wear for tonight” I tell her. She looks at me, tears welling up in her eyes. “ I’m so proud of you. You’ve come so far and I’m lucky to have you as my bestfriend, practically my sister. You’re gonna do amazing tonight and I’ll be watching you on the tv cheering you all the way” she sniffs. I pull her into a huge hug, “ Thankyou for being by my side. I couldn’t do this without you. I better get ready before I start crying too” I giggle.

2 HOURS LATER

I walk onto the red carpet, my smile as big as the moon. I see a reporter calling me over, I smile and make my way to him. “ Y/N, lovely to see you. How are you feeling about your performance tonight?” He asked showing off his pearly whites as he smiles at me. I grin back at him “ I’m so excited for it. It’s my biggest performance yet so I’m pretty pumped up about it and I can’t wait for everyone else to see it too” I tell him. “ You’re a young single lady Y/N, tell me is anybody catching your eye at the moment?” He asks. I laugh at his eagerness “ Well there’s a certain Mr Dylan O’ Brien who I’ve been crushing on for a while so with a little bit of luck I may get the chance to have the pleasure of meeting him” I giggle. “Ooh that’s a good pick there. You enjoy yourself tonight and good luck”, he says waving me off.

I walk into the arena, my face burning, a little embarrassed of admitting my crush on live television. I look around, the place was huge. I go and find my seat, fanning myself with my purse to cool myself down. I feel someone sit beside me and a familiar voice speaks to me. “ Y/N right?”. I turn my head and freeze. The Dylan O’ Brien is sitting next to me. ‘What a coincidence, a chance to turn into a complete moron’ I think to myself. “Hi, Dylan, Its nice to meet you. I’m a big fan”, I smile at him, offering my hand for him to shake. He grins at me 'Oh my god that perfect smile. And those amazing eyes’ I let my thoughts take over for a second. “ It’s nice to meet you too. I’m stoked you’re a fan. I’m actually a huge fan of your music, you’re extremely talented” he praises me. I beam at him “Thankyou, I appreciate it. You know, you’re character 'Stiles Stilinski’ is my favourite on teen wolf.” He grins at me about to speak but the ceremony starts and cuts him off.

ANOTHER 2 HOURS LATER

I stand backstage, my outfit now changed to a pair of black high wasted shorts and a white vest top. “ Please welcome to the stage a very talented young woman, who has the world under her spell at just 21 years old, singing her cover of 'Katy B’s Crying for no reason’. Here she is Y/N. I walk out as the song starts to play, the words flowing out of my mouth.

"I push all my problems to the back of my mind, then they surface in my dreams, they come alive”.

I see Dylan, smiling up at me, the words rolling off of my lips so naturally. Coming to the end of the song I give it my all.

“ Crying for no reason, feel the tears roll down, I felt strong, But am I breaking now? Crying for no reason 'cause I buried it deep, I made promises I could not keep, But I never faced all the pain I caused, Now the pain is hitting me full force”.

I finish the song, my heart racing, smiling at everyone before walking off stage. The award ceremony finishes as I run to go get changed back into my navy blue dress for the afterparty.

THE AFTERPARTY

I wall through the crowd full of celebrities,all congratulating me and telling me I did fantastic. I go grab a drink from the bar, feeling like getting very drunk. “Y/N, wow, you were amazing out there”. Dylan says as he walks up to me grinning. I grin back as I think to myself 'Don’t fuck this up Y/N. This is Dylan O’ Brien for godsake. You can talk to him without becoming a shrivelled up mess. “ Thankyou. I really put my heart into it, I’ve never performed and put so much of myself into a song like that before” I tell him. “ Well you pulled it off. Now you can have a few drinks and have a good time ” he says with a smirk, looking straight into my eyes. I bite my lip, I’ve never been more attracted to anyone in my life. “ Do you wanna dance with me maybe?” I blurt out without realising. He nods taking my hand and leading me to the middle of the floor where a bunch of people are dancing and grinding. “You know I swapped my seat with the amazing Hugh Jackman to sit next to you” he whispers in my ear. I blush my cheeks suddenly feeling extremely hot. My back is against his chest as he grinds into me, my instinct kicking in and grinding back against him. “ And why did you do that?” I whisper seductively back. His hands are on my waist, squeezing, pulling my behind into him, then spinning me so we’re face to face. “ Because I think you’re the most beautiful woman in the world and I didn’t want to miss the chance of speaking to you and getting to know you so that I can possibly make you mine” he says smirking at me. Our faces are so close together. There was so much chemistry, especially the sexual kind. 'I can’t take it anymore’ I think to myself. I move my fingers up through his hair and pull his lips to meet mine in a soft but needy kiss. His lips mold onto mine perfectly, his tongue swiping my bottom lip for entrance. I pull away smirking. “ Maybe we should get out of here ” I say out of breath. He bites his lip, pulling me away to grab a taxi.

It’s not a long drive to his home, but the sexual tension bursting from us made it feel like it was taking hours. He pays for the taxi, getting out and opening my door for me. He pulls my hand up to his house, his keys already in his hands opening the door. As soon as it shuts his lips are back on mine, pressing me against the door, his hands gripping my waist. I moan breathlessly against his mouth, my hands roaming underneath his shirt, feeling his muscles. He lifts me up carrying me upstairs, using his foot to kick a door open which I assume is his bedroom.

He stands me on the floor, pulling his blazer, shirt and tie off and throwing them to floor. I bite my lip as I let my eyes roam over the perfectly sculptured man in front of me. “ I want you so much. I don’t want to do anything that you don’t want to ” he says staring straight into my eyes.

I smirk, pulling my arms out of my dress and letting it pool at my feet. He stands there staring at me in my laced black bra and underwear. I pull him towards me unbuckling his belt ever so slowly kissing down is stomach as I let his suit pants drop to the floor. He picks me up carrying me to his bed, his lips attacking my neck, my legs wrapped around his waist as my fingers run through his now messy hair. I can feel my wetness seep through my underwear as I buck my hips to meet the bulge in his boxers.

“ Dylan please do something. I need to feel you please” I moan as he continues to attack my neck. He looks up at me placing a soft kiss upon my lips as he unclips my bra and pulls off my panties slowly. He smirks and bows his head infront of my dripping pussy and stares right into my eyes as he licks long stripes over my clit over and over again. I screw my eyes shut, as he begins to suck on the nub, using one of his long fingers to slide inside my pussy. I fist the sheets as he adds another finger, still sucking on my clit, moving his fingers in and out slowly. “Dyl, please I need more” I squeal, my chest heaving up and down.

Dylan looks at me and pulls his fingers out, crawling back up to me. “ Well it’s all about you right now. This is your reward for giving such a good performance” he whispers to me, pulling his boxer briefs off. His cock slapping against his stomach. My eyes widen at the size, never having anything as big before. He places at my entrance, slowly pushing in, my back arching at how good he feels pushing his cock inside my tight pussy. “ Fuck, You feel so fucking good baby” he mewls. All i can do is moan as he fills me up, thrusting at a steady pace, his lips now attached to my nipples, sucking and licking them, leaving hickeys on each side of my boobs.

He quickens his pace, his hands gripping my waist attacking my neck and lips with sloppy kisses. My hands clawing at his back as I scream out his name. “Dylan fuck baby. So fucking good. I’m close baby” I moan against his lips. He thrusts into my soaking pussy, as I feel my orgasm about to hit me. Both of our sweaty bodies against each other moaning incoherent words into each others ears.

He gives a hard thrust hitting my g-spot, throwing me over the edge. My orgasm taking over my body and spilling all over Dylans cock as he stills and shoots his cum inside me pussy.

We lay there for a few minutes, catching our breath. He pulls me towards him,spooning me from behind. “ That was amazing Y/N. I’d be honoured if I could do that with you everyday. After I’ve taken you on a date of course” he says quietly. I smile to myself. “ I’d love that Dyl” I tell him. He pulls me closer, kissing the back of my neck,his arms wrapped tightly around me as we drift off to sleep, thinking about how great the MTV Movie Awards were and how great our night together. was.

So that was my first Dylan smut. I’m planning on doing more if you guys liked it. If you have any ideas for me that I could write that’d be great. I’ll be taking some requests on any celebrity, character. It will mostly be teen wolf but if you have anyone in mind just let me know. All you gotta do is send me an ask and i’ll get to it.

Part 1 of bio exam studying. Ik this looks like an easy topic but good lord my history major ass is just like science who??? Don’t know her. Also in this exam: cell cycle/division (mitosis, meiosis) and body systems (tissues, nervous system). That’s a ton of info so I’m starting early.

Next week’s exam schedule:

  • West African Slave Trade: 10:30am Tuesday
  • Human Security: 3pm Tuesday
  • US History (ohmygod so much info): 11am Thursday
  • Human body biosc: 2:30pm Thursday

Anyway, that’s my midterm schedule in a nutshell. Had a few exams and essays this past week, as well. I gotta push through!!! SO much reading to do, especially for US History (7 chapters lmAO)

For everyone else in midterms, WEVE GOT THIS. Also, don’t be too upset if you badly. It’s your grade, yeah, but above that it is simply your understanding of material. Focus on the learning instead of on the grade. Go ask questions, make an effort. Your professors will notice, I promise!

GOOD LUCK 🎃👻

Partners in crime

Aries x Capricorn :
Explosives and brains. This duo will be unstoppable with Aries as the doer and Cap as the thinker. High tech equipment, they mean business. Most notorious of them all, everything will be broadcasted and still they will never be caught

Leo x Scorpio
Crime and seduction. Elegant, sleek and charming, these two will be hiding guns under suits and/or long elegant dresses. They hide their intention with perfumes stronger than revenge and are as timelessly deadly as the poison they’ll use on you

Pisces x Taurus
Strength and flexibility. This pair is inseparable and have a ride or die attitude to themselves and their plots. Will fight to the bitter end, succeed with Taurus strength and Pisces agility. Road trip schemers, they will always be on the run and they love it

Virgo x Aquarius
Genius and madness. Nothing goes better hand in hand. Most extravagant plotters of them all yet no one will understand what they are doing until it’s too late. Always a step ahead of everyone, they would receive a Nobel prize in crime

Gemini x Sagittarius
Adventure and conspiracy. These two will go down in history with their rebellious conspiracy. Yet, their scheme will always be a more of a game, and adventure to them. For them light hearted trickery is a catastrophe to everyone else

Libra x Cancer
Innocence and Evil. They are the devil in angel’s clothing. Will slip by unnoticed with some captivating chit chat and friendly smiles. Their eyes hide the plot well, they are the last anyone would ever suspect. Quick on their feet, good luck to anyone trying to catch them

Andre Burakovsky #1

Author’s Note: Holy crap this one got away from me. I’m so sorry. This imagine really did not want me to write it. I tried to be really creative and not do a typical “at the bar scene” (it kinda turns into that but you’ll see if you read it) I got the inspiration from Andre’s post on instagram. I hope you enjoy it and I’m sorry it is so long. And just in general I wish it was better! Please request again if it isn’t what you wanted! I’d love to right more of Andre because his smile is adorable.

You finished your makeup and went to help her locate the other heel. Why? Because she invited you to go to the Washington Wizard’s game. You loved sports, all sports and even more you loved D.C. sports. You weren’t the type of fan as in you knew every player on every team but you went to games when you could, especially when you got free court side tickets.

With some help from the Verizon Center staff you found your seat, right on the court. Your friend squealed in excitement. “I can’t believe these are our seats,” you raved. Your boss smiled out you, “honey you better believe it.” As you and your boss sat there talking about work, two very attractive guys took the two empty seats next to you. The one closest to you had brown wavy hair and deep brown eyes. While the man sitting next to him had black long hair and a rounder face with blue eyes. They both had athletic builds and simple senses of styles. “Hi,” the one closes to you said with a glowing smile and dimples to match. “Hi,” you responded with your own glowing smile. The guy next to him looked over at the two of you and also gave a soft smile. “Hello, I’m Tom,” he reached out to shake your hand. You grabbed it firmly, and introduced yourself back and your boss. Then turned to the guy next to you. “And you are?” you questioned. “I’m Andre,” he replied. You smiled at Andre, it’s nice to meet you Andre.” You turned yourself back towards your boss where she was giving you that “look”. “What” you jokingly retorted. “Oh nothing, I just enjoy seeing you flirt. Especially after seeing you reject Roger at the office so many times,” she laughed and you couldn’t help but laugh back. “When will he get the memo?” you agreed. “Oh darling boys are like rocks they never understand women even if we were to spell it out for them, especially Roger,” she continued. You two laughed again at how Roger comes to your desk for any excuse possible. “What’s so funny” Andre asked while giving you a goofy smile. You let out a small laugh and tried to compose yourself. “Nothing just some funny things that happened around the office,” you responded. He smiled back, “well you have a pretty laugh,” he noted. You bashfully smiled, “Thank you, Andre,” you responded. He flashed you a smirk that quickly turned into a smile.

Finally (Elorcan fic for Yulemaas)

For Maria ( @shutup-mundie ) who requested a fic for one of her SJM ships for her Yulemaas Secret Santa! ( @yulemaas )

I’m not sure if this will be posted a day too early or not due to time difference since I’m usually a day earlier than everyone :p

Here is an almost 4K Elorcan fluff fic two years after the war. I hope you like!

None of the characters used are mine. All copyright of Sarah J. Maas.

From your Secret Santa <3


Title: Finally

Word Count: 3,731

Chapters: 1/1

Rating: General Audiences

Relationships: Elide/Lorcan

Characters: Elide, Lorcan, Aelin, Aedion, Rowan, Maeve

Additional Tags: Nightmare, Fluff, Romance, Hurt/Comfort, Future, Love, Cuddling

Language: English


Summary:

It was only two years after the war with Maeve and Erawan did Elide Lochan start to grow comfortable around Lorcan once more. Their talks are much more at ease and their interactions far less awkward. Little did she know, her feelings for him never left as his for hers. They were only hidden deep inside her where she chose to ignore the tingling she felt whenever he was around.

On a duty given by his queen, Lorcan Salvaterre had to stay three nights in Perranth with the human girl he fell in love with two years ago. He did not mind, of course, other than the fact that he had severe nightmares about losing Elide almost every night. No one else knew since his wing in the Terrasen castle was far from everyone else.

A short story for Elorcan in which Elide discovers Lorcan’s nightmares from being apart from her.


Lorcan ran through the forest as fast as he could, following the sounds of the mangled screams coming from deep within the trees. He had lost them. The ilkens took Elide and he had lost them halfway.

Never had he hated himself more.

Lorcan pushed his legs faster as he came closer and closer to Elide’s screams. He broke through the lining of the trees just as he saw Elide’s bloodied body drop to the forest floor, her arms and legs mangled as the ilken flew away.

“NO!”

With as much power left in his body from the sight in front of him, Lorcan dropped beside Elide’s body. Her eyes were wide open and her mouth parted as blood dripped out.

“Elide.” Lorcan whispered, tears welling up in his eyes as he cradled her body delicately in his arms.

“No. No. You can’t be dead. No.” he kept repeating, each time getting louder and louder.

“NO!” Lorcan gasped as he sat up on his king sized bed. He glanced around the room he was in, realising that it was only another dream. A dream he’d been having for the past two years ever since the war ended.

With shaky hands, Lorcan reached up and wiped his tears away as his vision slowly cleared with each brush. It had become a common routine for him to wake up at dawn in cold sweat, wiping away his tears before he got out of bed and burned away the scare of the dream through a day of training.

And he did just that.

It didn’t take long for Lorcan to push himself out of bed. He took a quick shower, dressing in his training gear before leaving the room as he willed the dream of Elide dying away from his mind once more.

~~~

“Lorcan.”

Lorcan paused his jab towards Aedion as the voice of his queen resonated from behind him. Aedion smirked, as if he knew what she was going to say.

Good luck, Aedion mouthed as he moved away from him to another opponent on the training field.

“What is so important that you need to cut my training?” Lorcan asked without facing her, moving towards the bench where his tunic laid. He took it in his hands, wiping his face away from the sweat that had accumulated on his forehead.

“It’s regarding Elide.”

Immediately Lorcan perked up, his stance straighter and his face much more serious.

“What about her?”

Aelin smirked to herself. She was sure she looked a lot like Aedion when she did so. No matter how much Lorcan tried to hide his expression from her, she knew he was still madly in love with Elide Lochan. And Aelin had grown tired of both of their sulking, albeit not often but it was there.

It was quite common when Elide visited Terrasen that her eyes strayed around in every room they walked. As if she was trying to look for someone. Sometimes she’d daydream during their conversations of a demi-fae Aelin knew, although she tried to deny it. Lorcan was the same sometimes during meetings.

“I need you to stay three nights in Perranth. You leave tomorrow morning at dawn.”

“And why do I need to do that?” Lorcan asked, trying to reign in his anxious tone although his heart was about to beat out of his chest like a lovelorn teen. Which he was at that point, he wasn’t going to deny.

“There are some visitors coming into Perranth again to discuss a few deals with Elide. And I want you to overlook the visitors coming into the area. Make sure they are of no harm to Perranth or to their Lady.”

“You’ve been sending Gavriel to do that the past few months. Why me this time?” Lorcan finally faced Aelin, his face reigned expressionless.

“You know why.” Aelin replied, staring straight into Lorcan’s onyx eyes before walking off back into her Terrasen castle. She knew he wasn’t going to reject.

Lorcan sighed, dropping himself on the bench that once held his items that were now scattered on the ground. It was obvious to everyone that he missed Elide but he never thought of what he’d do when he actually had the chance to meet her. Let alone stay with her for three nights. It was true, of course, that they have become acquaintances once more and their interactions were more civilised. But there was still a slight air of hostility from Elide whenever he came around.

“Why do you look so upset when you’re finally meeting the woman you’ve been sulking over the past two years.” Aedion’s voice came out of nowhere as he settled himself beside Lorcan.

“Because,” Lorcan paused, “I don’t know what to do when I meet her.” He finally admitted, running his hands through his hair in frustration before burying his face in them.

“Apologize. Show her you’ve changed. That you’re willing to do anything for her, which I’m pretty sure you are willing to do.”

“I know that. But what if she refuses me?”

“Then she refuses you, Lorcan. You can’t force anything on her. You can’t make her change her emotions for you.”

Lorcan suddenly felt a burning inside him when Aedion thought he would ever force anything on Elide.

“I’d never make her do anything. Never.” Lorcan repeated, staring into Aedion’s eyes. His anger was clearly visible.

“Hey, I didn’t mean to offend you. I’m just saying.”

Lorcan sighed as he made the tension within him wear off, “I know.”

“Well, all I can say now is good luck.”

~~~

Lorcan didn’t bother sleeping that night, not wanting to be fazed during his walk to Perranth from the nightmare he would get if he did sleep. He just hoped that Elide put him in a room far from everyone else so their night wouldn’t be disrupted by his nightmares.

With his mind going in many different directions, Lorcan didn’t realize how fast it took him to arrive at Perranth. The sun was now high in the sky, beating down rays of heat all over. With all his gear strapped onto his back, he made his way towards the castle entrance. He knew, for a fact, that Elide didn’t have many servants within the castle. She only had what was needed to clean up and tend to guests.

So he wasn’t shocked when he knocked upon the castle door to only receive Elide opening it.

“What are you doing here?”

“Aelin sent me here. To overlook the new gusts.”

“Where’s Gavriel?”

Lorcan only shrugged as he looked at the small woman in front of him, dressed in leather pants and a tunic. He vaguely remembered overhearing a conversation Aelin had that Elide no longer liked wearing dresses, since her mangled ankle was apparently exposed.

“Are you going to come in or just stand there?” Elide’s sharp voice cut through his thoughts as she walked away from the open castle door.

“When do the guests arrive? And when is the meeting?”

“Tonight. For both.”

Only then did Lorcan notice the servants running back and forth around the foyer, bringing decorations of all sorts to put up and prepare.

He wondered what it would be like to live in Perranth. Just like he dreamed before he fucked everything up.

“Lorcan!”

Lorcan snapped his head in the direction of Elide’s voice as he realised he must have been lost in thought once more.

“Yes?” A single word was all he could muster as he watched Elide leaning against the railing of the wide staircase with her arms crossed.

“I’ll show you to your room.”

Lorcan followed Elide silently, his powers automatically bracing Elide’s mangled ankle with him realising only moments after. She paused in her steps when she felt the brace wrap around her ankle, before moving forward once more towards the guest bedrooms.

“You know you don’t have to do that.”

Lorcan didn’t answer. He didn’t know how to answer. He braced her ankles willingly, of course. He would do anything for her honestly and simply bracing her ankles made him feel better knowing she could walk with less pain.

It didn’t take them long to reach the gust bedroom, Elide briefly showing him the en suite bathroom and where all his stuff should go.

“My room is just down the hall, the two wooden doors. Just down the stairs to the right is the kitchen and to the left the guest area. Feel free to go wherever.” Elide paused, “Except my room of course.”

“Are you sure about that?” Lorcan teased.

“I’m sure.” Elide answered, a small smirk nestled on her face as she left his temporary room for three nights.

I wanted to go to Perranth with you.

The words slowly trailed inside his mind, as he truly realised where he was. Memories from two years ago in that cave with Elide bubbled up as she left the room.

“Get rid of them, Lorcan. You’re only here for three nights.” He mumbled to himself.

He could only hope that his nightmares were mild compared to what they were the duration of his stay.

~~~

Elide Lochan was going to kill Aelin Ashryver Galathynius.

She could not believe that Aelin sent Lorcan for watch duty of the guests. Elide had become use to Gavriel. They had a fairly nice friendship. But then Aelin decided to send Lorcan of all people to do guest duty this time. For three nights at that when he only needed to stay for one.

I am going to kill her the next time I go to Terrasen.

Rowan wouldn’t let you touch her, her mind answered back as if it was smug that it was right.

Elide was not going to deny that her feelings for Lorcan Salvaterre were still there. Actually, they were more prominent now as she had understood and forgiven him for what he’d done two years ago.

She, shamelessly, would have done the same if something of the sort happened to Lorcan.

Elide dropped herself against her bed, staring up at the beige ceiling of her master bedroom. She didn’t know what to do. To be honest, she didn’t mind Lorcan staying. It was her feelings for him that she did not know how to cope.

Elide knew she wanted him then and still wants him now. The problem was that she’s afraid that he would do the same thing.

“Do you really think he’d do the exact same thing again? The guy is practically in love with you, Elide. He learned from his mistakes and he’d grovel at your feet if you asked him.”

“But what if he does do the same thing again?”

“He wouldn’t. Trust me.”

She remembered Aelin’s words when she visited Terrasen for a few days. Aelin had confronted her quite abruptly about Elide’s feelings for Lorcan, hiding nothing about his despair since the war ended.

What to do. What to do.

In the end, she pushed away her doubts to concentrate on the meeting tonight.

She could only hope that Lorcan didn’t distract her too much.

~~~

Lorcan thought he wasn’t going to make it through the night as he watched Elide in front of the meeting room, fierce as ever as she made negotiations with the visiting guests.

The sight in front of him made him feel things he hadn’t felt in a long while. Specifically since that night in the cave with Elide. It was true that he still loved her and it was true he’d kill himself for her if he had to but he had been feeling these things from afar.

Now with her in such close proximity, he felt like everything was amplified tenfold.

“…and that’s why I believe that Perranth would be a good addition for trade amongst your kingdoms. Specifically for the small villages as we can provide…”

Elide’s voice drowned out once more in Lorcan’s mind as he tried to clear his thoughts of her. Instead, he shifted to his sleep tonight. His room was close, so close, to Elide’s master bedroom that he didn’t known how to hide his nightmares. There was only one other person that knew of his situation:

Rowan Whitethorn.

Rowan had stumbled over to Lorcan’s room one late night after a fight with Aelin (in which they made up the next day quickly) and had heard the thrashing within the room. By the end of the night, Rowan had forgotten his problems and had helped Lorcan instead. He also swore to him that he wouldn’t tell anyone else after much persuasions on Lorcan’s part.

And he’d like to keep it that way.

“…Thank you all for coming. Please enjoy more of the food outside if you would like and I believe you have been shown to your rooms by the servants. Have a good night.”

The silence that enveloped the room before was quickly filled with murmurs and chattering of the guests. Lorcan kept an eye out for anyone that may seem like a threat. Truth be told, he was also looking at all the males in the room that might upsize him.

Without realizing, Lorcan was smiling to himself as he knew exactly what Elide would’ve said to him for watching the males:

Territorial Fae Bastard

A few of the guests stayed back to talk with Elide while the others quickly dispersed to their rooms to discuss amongst each other the things that were said in the meeting. It didn’t take long for those few guests to quickly leave with a hasty good night. Within the hour, it was only Lorcan and Elide left in the room.

“Tired?” Lorcan tested the waters, seeing if Elide would be willing to talk to him.

“Why ask if you know?”

Lorcan chuckled. He had missed her remarks, no matter how harsh they were sometimes.

“Because I didn’t want to assume,” he paused, “Are they leaving tomorrow?”

“Tomorrow morning, yes.”

Only then did it hit Lorcan that he only needed to stay for one night too if the guests were leaving the next day.

So why did Aelin want him to stay for three?

He didn’t ponder on it for too long, not wanting to ruin the fragile friendship him and Elide had at the moment. Also, he would never go against his queen. Not after what he did two years ago.

“Aren’t you tired?” Elide suddenly asked, seating herself at the head of the table while Lorcan sat two chairs away from her on her right.

“I don’t sleep much these days.”

Elide stared at him weirdly, raising an eyebrow at high vague answer.

“Care to elaborate?”

“No.” Lorcan answered straight to the point, hating the topic of his nightmare entirely.

That only caused both of Elide’s eyebrows to rise.

“Well, then, alright. Keep it to yourself.”

Lorcan could only shrug at her answer. He really did despise the topic of his nightmare. Although no one knew but Rowan.

“It’s quite late,” Elide paused, “I think I’m just going to go to bed. You know where your room is and where everything is in the castle. If you ever feel like getting a midnight snack to soothe your old age you know where it is.”

Elide left the meeting room with Lorcan laughing in the background and her heart feeling a little bit happier.

~~~

“You were suppose to save us! You said you were on our side!”

“Elide, please.” Lorcan begged on his hands and knees, willing her to listen.

“If you didn’t betray us, this wouldn’t have happened!” Elide screamed at him, tears streaming down her delicate face as Maeve held her with a blade pressed against her throat, “No one would be hurt!”

“Maeve stop, please. I’ll do any-“

Maeve only gsvr Lorcan a sadistic grin before slicing the blade mercilessly across Elide’s throat.

“NO!” He screamed louder than he ever did before.

“No. No. No.” Lorcan crawled over to Elide’s bloodied body, cradling her in his arms.

“Elide. No. Eli-“

“Lorcan! Wake up!”

Lorcan gasped awake, his body covered in cold sweat. He vaguely felt a small hand on his shoulder before he ran to the bathroom and threw up his dinner in the toilet. His stomach emptied and, even then, he was still dry heaving into the toilet.

In the two years of Lorcan having nightmares, not once had he threw up before. But he had never, never, had a dream with Maeve in it either. And the fact that she was made him feel sick to the bones. His body was shaking as he finally finished dry heaving as he collapsed on his hands and knees on the bathroom floor. Everything was spinning and his limbs felt like they were going to fall off his body in any second.

“…Lorcan. Lorcan!”

Lorcan managed to turn his head slightly, his body going into another mini shock when he saw Elide standing over him. Only then did he feel her soft hand pressing against his bare shoulder and her face crumpled in worry.

“…Lorcan! Say something. Are you alright?”

“Y-Yes. Yes, I’m fine.”

Lorcan attempted to push himself off the ground, only for Elide to help him entirely. He would have laughed at how a human girl half his size had so much strength to help him if he didn’t feel like he was going to collapse at any moment. It didn’t take long for Lorcan to rinse his mouth quickly at the sink before manoeuvring to the bed with Elide’s help.

“What was that, Lorcan?” Elide asked, moments after she sat him down on the edge of his bed.

Lorcan sighed, burying his face in the palms of his hands. He was still shaking, shivering, from the nightmare. He never wanted to see that again. The image was so close to the memory from two years ago if Lorcan hadn’t come back in time to save Elide.

“Lorcan. What was that?” Elide repeated, crossing her arms as she watched him.

After a beat of silence, Lorcan answered.

“It wasn’t anything. I’m fine.” He croaked out.

“That wasn’t nothing, Lorcan!” Elide’s voice rose with every word, her eyes filling with rage.

“It happens all the time, Elide! I’m fine!”

“You’re not! You look exhausted since the moment you walked into this place! What. Is. Happening.” Elide bit out, her tone getting much more frustrated by the second.

“They’re nightmares, Elide!”

A silence set upon them before Lorcan continued.

“They’ve been happening for two years already.” Lorcan stood up, his breathing coming out in pants as he finally vented all his frustrations, “And I can’t do anything about it! It’s always about you! You’re either dead or in the process of dying and all I can do is stand there like I did two years ago like the useless warrior I am!” Lorcan yelled before crumpling to the ground beneath him, burying his face in the palms of his hands once more.

Elide stood there, starting at the space where Lorcan previously sat on the bed.

“It’s always about you!”

She didn’t know how to react to that. It wasn’t a secret, well other than to Lorcan, that she still liked him after the initial hate left her. She understood to an extent of his position and how she might’ve done the same if they were switched.

“Lorcan…”

He didn’t answer, staying crumpled on the ground as he was the whole time before.

“Lorcan, please.”

Again, he didn’t answer. Only the shaking of his shoulders showed Elide that he was, in fact, alive.

He’s crying.

“Lorcan,” Elide whispered, kneeling in front of him. She took his face gently in the palms of her hands, brushing away his tears with the pads of her thumb.

“Just-Just go, Elide. I understand what I did two years ago was unforgivable and that I might never repa-“

Elide cut him off immediately, pressing her lips against his as her hands slid up and into his hair. Lorcan’s eyes widened before his entire body relaxed into the kiss. His large hands rested on Elide’s hips, pulling her closer and onto his lap. Lorcan faintly felt the tears slide down his face once more. But for once, it was from happiness. From the fact that Elide Lochan was kissing him right now and if it were to be the last time she did, he’d die a happy man.

“Elide,” Lorcan whispered, leaning his forehead against hers once they pulled apart, “W-What-“

“You’re such an idiot, Lorcan.”

“What? Why?” Lorcan’s eyes turned into slits although his heart felt like beating right out of his chest.

“Because you should’ve come to me. Because I don’t hate you. Because I-I still like you-you Fae Bastard.”

Lorcan could only stare at Elide before laughing softly to himself. This only seemed to anger Elide further.

“You think this is funny? You’re such a bastard, Lorcan. Why did I ever-“

This time he was the one that cut her off with a kiss, his hands pulling her impossibly closer. He lifted her up in his arms, laying her down on where he once laid before pulling away.

You still like me?”

“Do I have to say it again?”

“Yes. Say it again.”

Elide couldn’t help the smile that slipped onto her face. She reached up, brushing away a few dark strands of his hair from his face.

“I still like you Lorcan Salvaterre. And I’m willing to try something again to-to make this work.”

Lorcan laughed in joy, his eyes brimming with tears once more.

“Elide. Elide. Elide,” he buried his face in her neck, “Y-You don’t know how-how this means so much to me. I thought it was impossible. That you hated me completely.”

Lorcan leaned in, kissing her once softly on the lips, “I love you. And I know you’re not there yet but I’ll wait decades if I have to. Thank you. Thank you.”

Elide laughed as Lorcan quietly shifted himself to lay beside her. She immediately settled herself beside him, burying her face in his chest. Lorcan’s hand reached up, brushing through Elide’s soft hair.

“Will you stay in Perranth, Lorcan?” Elide asked quietly, just as they were about to fall asleep.

“Anything for you, love.”

Lorcan only returned to Terrasen a month later, with Elide by his side.

Aelin and Rowan had never been more relieved.

Message?: soft!Changbin is my aesthetic

________________

“Changbin…” I said, my voice trailing off as I walked into the Stray Kids dorm, Jisung and Felix, equally as nervous, trailing behind me.

“Oh? You’re back!” Changbin called.

Jisung leaned down and picked up the dog, stroking him as I walked towards Changbin, leading him to the kitchen away from our new perchase.

“What’s wrong?” Changbin asked.

“Nothing!” I lied.

“Then why are you acting so weird?” Changbin asked, laughing, “lemme say hi to Jisung then I’ll be back, alright?”

Felix motioned to me that he was gonna take the dog elsewhere so Changbin could talk to Jisung, but moving him wasn’t the easiest thing.

“O-oh wait!” I exclaimed, grabbing Changbin, pulling him back and into a kiss, opening one eye and only letting go of him when I saw that Felix and the dog had gone.

Changbin laughed, giving me a weird look, “love you too.”

He walked off towards the living room and I sighed, relaxing as I leaned against the counter when I heard a dog barking.

“Shit,” I muttered.

“What was that?” Changbin asked, standing up.

“Hyunjin!” I lied, motioning for Jisung to go along with it, “he’s probably got Kkami.”

“But—“ Changbin started, but just ignored it as he turned around to talk to Jisung again.

I swore, walking into Felix’s room where he was laid on the bed, the dog on top of him.

“How long is this a secret because I’m quite happy like this,” Felix said.

I stifled my laughter, picking him off of Felix and stroking his ears, “I don’t know.”

“Y/N?” Changbin asked, poking his head round the door.

I immediately stood up, holding the dog behind my back.

“Yeah?” I asked, swallowing.

“Seriously! What’s up with you three today?” Changbin laughed, “what’s behind your back?”

“Nothing!” I exclaimed, when I heard the dog sneeze and Felix laugh.

“Y/N…” Changbin said.

I stifled my laughter, “yes Changbin?”

“What’s behind your back?” he asked again, his voice more serious this time.

They made me do it!” I exclaimed.

“What is it?!” Changbin shouted.

I stumbled back a bit before putting the dog on Felix’s lap.

Changbin sighed, “Y/N.”

“What’s going on?!” Chan exclaimed, “I heard shouting.”

I may have accidentally bought a dog,” I said, gently stroking the oblivious creature’s head.

“A dog?!” Jeongin exclaimed excitedly, “Chan is he ours?!”

“No, he’s Y/N and Changbin’s,” Chan said, stifling a laugh, “good luck.”

Felix put the dog in my arms and left the room with everyone else, leaving me with a scary looking Changbin.

Please don’t kill me,” I said, quietly.

Changbin shook his head, chuckling, “what the fuck Y/N?”

“He’s so cute though Changbin! I’m sorry! I saw him and then Felix and Jisung were like ‘well you have your own house’ and I was like ‘wait shit I do’ and I had the money and I’ve bought him a bed! And food! And I’ll take him for walks because I know you’re busy but I hope—“

“Teddy,” Changbin said, opening the door.

I looked at him, “huh?”

“We’re naming him Teddy and he’s ours,” Changbin said, walking out.

I smiled, hugging him close to me as I followed Changbin out the room, “Teddy.”

so I’m reading these theories that s5 (if it even still happens, seeing as there’s only 1/10th of the fandom left) might be Martin-less. if they ever go that route, good luck. as underrated as Martin is, you cannot deny he is the only one of his kind. name one actor who can accomplish what martin can with his thousand-micro-expressions-per-second face. even ben is not capable of what martin can bring to the table. it’s martin’s subtle-restrained intensity that works well with ben’s showy-flashy intensity.

no one else compares to martin fucking freeman and everyone knows it. he is hands down the most nuanced, most emotionally accessible, most believable john watson i have ever had the honor of watching with my own two eyes. cutting him out of sherlock (or worse, replacing him, as laughable as that sounds) would really cheapen the show tbh.
