A/N: Writing MatsuHanaIwaOi is always hard but gratifying. Here you go, dear @haikyuuforlife I hope you enjoy this! It’s a bit… ugh idk, but i hope you like it! I love you, you precious wifey ♥

Massive thanks to my lovely girl Ginny ( @otomiya-tickles ), who helped me to give form to this idea. She’s such a sunshine ♥ Love yoouuu

15. “Looks like we have a winner” - MatsuHanaIwaOi

Words: 1, 247 Under the cut! (God bless Ginny for letting me know how do Read more works *smooches*)


“You guys are so weak”, Hanamaki said, a smirk on his face as he sat in front of Iwaizumi and put his elbow on the table, so ready to start. “I’ll win”

Iwaizumi was unbeaten after winning two matches of arm wrestling with Matsukawa and Oikawa. It was Hanamaki’s turn and he was being too self-confident. Hajime smirked up at him, (trying to hide his blush when Hanamaki winked at him), and wrapped his hand around Hanamaki’s, wiggling his fingers a little to get a better hold on it.

“Okay and… now!”, Hanamaki shrieked when, withing three seconds, his hand was one inch to touch the table.

“You were saying?”, Hajime mumbled, adding just a bit more of force to finally wrest Hanamaki’s arm down, Hanamaki squeaked, holding onto the edge of the table as he tried very hard to lift his arm.

“Help! Help!”, he giggled desperately, his face turning pink and then red and then almost purple.

“Shall we help?”, Matsukawa asked, looking to the other side of the little coffee table towards Oikawa who smiled widely and nodded his head eagerly. Matsukawa nodded back at him and squirmed closer to Iwaizumi’s left side, Oikawa to the right.

Hajime didn’t mind them, he actually thought they would try to push his arm down with Hanamaki, but when he felt two squeezes at each side of his waist he gasped and tried to retract his arms down to protect himself, one was able to glue to one side, but the other kept restrained in Hanamaki’s grasp.

Iwaizumi squirmed and bit the inside of his cheek to stop the giggles threatening to escape. He tried very hard to come back into the game, pushing Hanamaki’s hand as best as he could while feeling one set of fingers traveled up towards his ribs and the other ran down towards that fucking spot at his hip.

He tried really hard to fight back the smile on his lips, but his shoulders were already shaking with held-in laughter and his grip on Hanamaki’s hand was loosing up a little.

Regardless, he was determinated to not give in, so with all and the ticklish sensations almost overpowering him, he found some strenght within him and soon Hanamaki was sweating, trying to push up Hajime’s arm as hard as possible.

“A little bit of help here?!”, Hanamaki squeaked, twisting his wrist a little to not touch the surface.

Takahiro almost jumped out of his skin when Iwaizumi threw his head back, howling with laughter as one single finger dug in the lowest of his ribs and another one right in the middle of his hipbone. He also jumped, arching his back and batting the intrusive hands off of his body, it was useless, though, when the pinching and squeezing started and he squirmed and withdrew, trying to bring his knees up to proctect himself but hitting them under the table.

“Thi-thihihis is cheating!”, Hanamaki whined when the grip on his hand grew stronger as if Hajime didn’t want to let go just yet and he verified that theory when he tried to push Hajime’s arm all the way to the left, but it was still hard as fuck. “D-Dammit stohop!”

“C'mon, Hajime”, Matsukawa hummed on Hajime’s ear. “This big boy can’t stand a little tickling?”, awkward embarrasing tingles traveled down his spine as a cackle left his body when Oikawa clawed his hand on the center of his firm stomach.

“Hajime, Jesus Christ!”, Hanamaki was still having some problems trying to wrestle down Hajime’s arm. It was half way to it  and Iwaizumi was starting to feel the muscles on his arms tensing and hurting a little with the new angle, he was losing.

Women speaking of mirrors and prettiness make it all too clear that even for pretty women, mirrors are the foci of anxious, not gratified, narcissism. The woman who knows beyond a doubt that she is beautiful exists aplenty in male novelists’ imaginations; I have yet to find her in women’s books or women’s memoirs or in life. Women spend a lot of time looking in mirrors, but the “compulsion to visualize the self” is a phrase Moers uses of women in her chapter on Gothic freaks and horrors; the compulsion is a constant check on one’s (possible) beauty, not an enjoyment of it.
—  Joanna Russ, “Aesthetics,” How to Suppress Women’s Writing (1983).

  • Mr. D: My figurine.
  • Nico: In my game, Mythomagic. And a holofoil card, too! And even though you've only got like five hundred attack points and everybody thinks you're the lamest god card, I totally think your powers are sweet!
  • Mr. D: Ah. Well, that's… gratifying.

2016 was a very very heavy year for me. Especially for personal reasons.

But having this blog, sharing my art, and talking to people here has helped me immensely. It helped distract myself when I needed to relax. It also inspired me to work harder - since I get a lot of feedback saying that seeing my art after having a rough day helps people feel a bit happier as well.

Therefore, I’d like to thank you, each and every one of you, for your kind words, support, and your feedback. For sharing with me some trivia, headcanons, stories and interests. 

Thank you so much! I hope 2017 treats everyone kindly! (*´꒳`*)

*things that will either cause me to cheer loudly or shrivel up with acute second-hand embarrassment* 

  • Bedelia and Will starting a sentence at the same time and one of them having to back down 
  • Bedelia executing the most clinically brutal couples-therapy drag of him and Hannibal 
  • possibly whilst also off her tits on drugs or poison
  • Will seeing the dress Hannibal chose 
  • Hannibal doing the goo-goo eyes at Will and Bedelia’s right frickin’ there
  • Will self-consciously eating the food while Hannibal is avidly watching him, and knowing he’s watching him, but that Bedelia is also watching him, and also watching Hannibal watch him (after that line about Hannibal feeling a stab of hunger for him!!!) 
  • Bedelia mentioning things that Will told her in confidence during therapy 
    • Will trying to sass her back and succeeding
    • Will trying to sass her back and failing 
    • Will either failing to conceal or openly indulging his inner jealous!bitch and Hannibal being almost obscenely gratified 
    • Bedelia repeatedly mentioning Will’s Grieving Widow
    • Bedelia mentioning that crush Hannibal told him Will had on Alana 
    • JUST. HANNIBAL. AND BEDELIA. AND WILL.

    INFJ (the counselor)

    [INFJs] are introspective, cooperative, directive, and attentive. They have a strong desire to contribute to the welfare of others. Counselors are gratified by helping others to develop and reach their potential.Counselors often communicate in a personalized manner. They tend to be positive and kind when dealing with others. 

    They are good listeners and can sometimes detect a person’s emotions or intentions even before the individual is aware of them. This ability to take in the emotional experiences of others, however, can lead Counselors to be hurt easily.

    [INFJs] usually have intricate personalities and rich inner lives. They are generally private people who keep their innermost thoughts and emotional reactions to themselves. This quality can make them difficult to get to know. (x)

    not-smol-but-still-qt  asked:

    i just saw your 4 years post with the wolf stomach and honestly what a wild ride i remember way back when you posted the wolf videos and i was so frustrated because they were age restricted and i wasn't 18 yet

    Right!?

    So, here’s the crazy thing: I’ve started receiving messages from people who began watching the show in the beginning 4 years ago, when they were Freshman in high school – and now they’re going on to college! And people who were freshman in college who are now graduating and going onto masters and PhD programs! Lots of these folks are pursuing science fields and credit watching The Brain Scoop as a way to help them make choices about what they want to study. 

    If you’re one of those people, then you are my greatest pride. I always wanted TBS to be a way to help people participate in museum and science fields, and understand that art can also be a great entry point for those things – and it’s really, tremendously gratifying to see that pay off. Thank you for helping me achieve my dreams along the way, too. <3 

    P.S. there’s gon’ be a real bloody episode comin’ up in a few weeks for anyone disappointed with a lack of Gross-O-Meter lately, but it’s gonna be full of dat research science jazz TOO
