About the “Safe Mode” feature

@staff

Hello Tumblr staff, or the person/group that manages the staff Tumblr. Please listen.

This is about the new feature that was implemented recently, “Safe Mode.” I have a lot of friends and people that I follow/follow me that are affected by it. Not only that, people around the website who are saying they’re affected by it.

A lot of people have posted that the “Safe Mode” is actually not a good feature. It’s blocking things that are not “adult-content” like posts about the lgbtqiap+. There’s also been posts about how it isn’t doing it’s best to block the actual things that are “adult-content” like the porn blogs/bots that keep on harassing users.

The main point of contention is the fact that users under 18 aren’t able to turn it off. As quoted on the staff’s post about “Safe Mode”:

“(If you’re under 18: You’re not able to turn off Safe Mode until you’re older. You’ll just have to use your imagination.)”

Now, a lot of people on Tumblr are in the lgbtqiap+ community, especially people under 18 years old. Consider that many teenagers/children use Tumblr as an outlet, a way to get away from homophobia/transphobia/etc., as a way to be free from being in the closet outside of the internet, or just in general, being in the lgbtqiap+ community.

Coupled with the fact that a lot of people are saying the “Safe Mode” feature is blocking lgbtqiap+ posts, it means that users under 18 years old who are in the lgbtqiap+ community who’ve joined for comfort are going to become lost. Blocked by a feature because they had no choice on the matter. That really pains me that there are children and teenagers who are being blocked out of the lgbtqiap+ community.

The idea of “Safe Mode” sounds good on paper. Unfortunately, it will be a complete nightmare for everybody.

I feel that if “Safe Mode” isn’t going to be removed, I think the best solution is to at least make “Safe Mode” optional for everybody. That includes people under 18 years old. Let it be an option for everybody if they want to turn it off or on.

Please listen to this message, Tumblr staff.

(Sorry if this a weird way of sending an important message. I didn’t really bother to look for the staff’s personal emails.)

All His - Part 1 (A Kyungsoo Series)

“Hey did you hear? We have a new assignment. Some big group of foreigners coming in for a musical tour.” Your co worker Anna whispered into your ear as you took off your bag and set down your coffee at the big conference table. The phone call you received from your supervisor this morning advising you of the new client and requesting your presence was nothing out of the ordinary, but you were surprised to find several other translators from the firm gathered around the table as well.

Daily UI #13 - Direct Messaging

My take on an update to the tumblr messaging system, specifically on mobile, with some Voltron tossed in :D thought it’d be nice to have group chats, more timestamps, twitter’s night mode, and some of xkit’s and discord’s customizations

Backstage

It’s not uncommon for rookie groups to run into each other often, due to the near constant cycles of promotions. Fate seems to have a lot in store for you and Kang Daniel of Wanna One.
for anon who requested idol!reader who meets Daniel backstage; he develops a crush.
+
You waited onstage nervously for the music of your group’s title track to begin playing. One of your members whispered ‘hwaiting!”, and the others in your group smiling in response.

“Five, four, three two one!” Your maknae kicked off the song, flashing her signature smile at the camera as the music started up, the pop music overwhelming you. You moved to the beat of the choreography, having danced that dance at least a thousand times in preparation for your promotions.

As the rapper of your group, you had the second verse, and you made sure to smile charmingly like your company had taught you as you popped out from behind your members as the choreography dictated. You smoothly went through the verse, making sure to hit each aspect of the choreography.

The final chorus began, and the usual confetti exploded as your main vocal hit her high note, the crowd cheering. Waiting offstage, you noticed Wanna One waiting by the stairs, dancing to the catchy song.

This was the second time that your promotions had crossed paths with Wanna One, and you two had debuted around the same time. One of your members, Ara, and Seongwoo had co-MC’d on Music Bank for a while, so you were at least acquaintances with their members.

As your song ended and your group hurried offstage, you made sure to bow to Wanna One, greeting them. You were the last one to leave, and you hurried to bow to each member, wanting to be polite.

“Nice stage!” One of the members, Kang Daniel, congratulated with a smile.

“Ah, thank you,” you exclaimed, bowing again, “Wanna One hwaiting!” You held up your fist, and the boys laughed, echoing your cheer.

After the show had ended, your group was herded out to your van to head back to the dorms. Just as you were about to leave, your manager paused, frowning.

“Where’s the cordi noona?” The unni who did your outfits was going on vacation soon, and so she was planning on going to your dorm with you to show you what outfits to wear and how to style them. Your company was a small one, and their only group was yours, CIEL, and so you didn’t have much money to spare.

“I guess she’s still back there,” Jisoo, another member, piped up.

“I can go back and look for her,” you offered, wanting to stretch your legs a bit before the ride back to the dorm.

“Ah, thanks (y/n),” your manager said with a smile, “if you get into any trouble, just call me and I’ll go, okay?”

“Got it!” You hurried out of the van back into the building, checking the various rooms for her. You jogged down the hall, pulling out your phone to text her.

“Oh? Skye-ssi?” You jolted at the sound of your stage name, turning around to see Kang Daniel, Ong Seongwoo and Lee Daehwi standing outside of their dressing room.

You bowed quickly, greeting them.

“Skye-ssi, I really like your group’s song,” Daehwi said cheerfully with a smile.

“Ah, thank you,” you smiled, bowing again, “your comeback was amazing, as usual.”

“You’re really talented as a rapper,” Daniel smiled, making you blush slightly at the compliment.

“Thank you, thank you!” You bowed quickly, “good luck in your promotions!”

“You too!” Daniel called as you raced off, glancing in every room.

“Oh! Unni!” You finally found her, sitting on one of the benches, a huge pile of clothing bags next to her.

“(y/n)!” The cordi unni smiled, getting to her feet, “what happened to your manager? I thought he was going to help me with these outfits?”

You sighed,surveying the large pile of clothing, “no, I guess there was a miscommunication. It’s okay, I’m sure we can carry it.”

You struggled to lift more than half of the huge pile, trying to balance the slippery bags on top of each other. You kept dropping them, and when you went to pick one bag up, another would fall. You groaned in frustration, holding back the urge to kick one of the bags.

“Need a hand?” You peered over the pile of clothing bags to see Kang Daniel looking back at you, a slightly concerned look on his face.

“Yes,” you sighed, “our manager was supposed to help us with these outfits, but he didn’t quite get the message.”

“It’s fine, you’re just taking these out to your van?” Daniel asked, taking a few of the bags from both you and your cordi unni, significantly lightening the load.

“Yup!” The cordi unni chirped, before looking closer at Daniel, “woah, Kang Daniel?”

Daniel nodded, doing his best to bow with all the clothing in his arms.

“Wah, I’m meeting Mr. Nayana himself!”

“No, unni, that’s Lee Daehwi,” you whispered to the cordi unni. Next to you, Daniel suppressed a chuckle. “This is Mr. Center.”

“He’s still a celebrity!” The cordi unni smiled, bumping her shoulder into yours, “look at you, (y/n), making connections.”

“Oh!” Daniel looked down at you, looking surprised, “your name is (y/n)?”

“Yeah,” you smiled, “Skye is just a stage name.”

“To be honest, I thought you were foreign,” Daniel said sheepishly, “you know, your rap has English, and your pronunciation is good.”

“Oh, thank you!” You grinned as the three of you exited the building, heading towards your van.

As your unni opened the trunk of the van, piling the outfits in there, you turned to Daniel to thank him.

“No worries!” He replied, smiling easily, “it was no trouble, and I’m happy to help you out.”

You blushed a tiny bit as he patted you on the back before heading back inside, typing something into his phone.

The next time you saw Daniel, you were backstage with the other girls, crying. You’d managed to take home your first win, and the five of you were huddled into a group hug, your staff surrounding you fondly like proud parents.

As your group dispersed, other idol greeting and congratulating you as they headed to their dressing rooms, you caught sight of Kang Daniel.

“Congratulations,” he said with a smile, giving you a hi-five. “Your group deserved the win.”

“Thank you,” you beamed up at Daniel, eyes still a bit glassy from the tears you had shed earlier.

The other girls headed back to the dressing room and you moved to follow, stopped by Daniel reaching out and placing a hand on your shoulder.

“Daniel, what’s up?” You asked in confusion, looking up at the taller male. He smiled down at you, looking almost embarrassed as his cheeks took on a pale pink flush.

“I was wondering if you’d be willing to give me your phone number,” he said in a rare moment of shyness, holding his phone out, “I’ve really been wanting to ask for a while, but I always got too nervous. I really, really want to go on a date with you.”

You smiled widely, quickly punching your phone number and nickname into the new contact. Daniel accepted his phone with a grin, reaching out to hug you.

“Congrats again, (y/n),” he said earnestly, hugging you on the side.As Daniel walked away quickly to join his own group, an idea occurred to you.

“I haven’t seen Wonder Woman yet!” You yelled after him, giving Daniel a wink as he turned around, the look of surprise melting into a happy one, two front teeth sticking out a bit more as his eyes curved up.

That night, you were texted an e-ticket to a showing of Wonder Woman the next weekend.

anonymous asked:

Hey! Since you recently answered a question about the general care of children and how it differs from with adults- how is it different working with kids in emergency situations? Like if a child was in a fire or suddenly came down with a life threatening illness or broke a bone or something like that?

Hey there nonny! Thanks for your ask! 

(This ask is referring to [this post], by the way). 

Kids in emergencies are typically in one of two states: either they’re panicky little horrorshows who scream, cry, cling to their moms (when available), refuse to let you do ANYTHING, or else they’re pale, limp, quiet, and still. 

I will take the first kid over the second kid every single day of my life. A child crying is my favorite thing to hear coming out of an elevator. Why? Because that second child is sick as shit.  

Kids in the absolute worst emergencies are “easy” to treat, because they’re unconscious or flaccid or simply checked-out. They’re also stupendously sick, and even skilled providers with pediatric training get freaked out by really sick kids. 

So those kids are easy. Managing their parents can be extremely difficult, of course, but you can generally calm adults down at least to a point of being functional and cooperative. 

Paradoxically, the less-sick kids are a lot harder to treat, because they want to crawl, run, scream, and get as far away from you (the big scary stranger who probably has needles) as possible. 

The single best thing for providers to do is recruit the parents. (Or caretakers of whatever kind are available; someone the kid trusts. I’m as trans-positive and inclusive as they come, but I also will reach for the person the kid calls mom as the person to reach out to first. In my experience, that’s who the vast majority of kids trust the most.) 

Other things: distraction works really well with moderately-sick kids; peds docs/nurses/medics typically have some kind of shiny or toy on them. 

It also often helps to demonstrate what you’re going to do on mom/caretaker-du-jour. We’ll put pulse ox probes on mom and/or ourselves, then put them on the kid, to show them it doesn’t hurt. (We can’t do this with sharps, obviously.) 

Finally, trying to provide comforting elements, such as bright and cheery spaces with lots of cartoons, can be comforting. Here’s an exam room in [the Peds ER at Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center]: 

I’ve even watched entire staff groups sing The Wheels on the Bus to a kid who was getting an IV – as people were holding the kid’s arm down and the IV was getting put in. The kid was screaming, and I have a feeling it probably gave the kid a Pavlovian response to The Wheels on the Bus (the little droog), but hey, it’s a thing and I’ve seen it so I pass it on to you! 

Hope this helped a bit. 

xoxo, Aunt Scripty

Monsta X in ATL Part 2

👀👀Warning long post ahead👀👀

Photo-Op
After the high touch we were led into lines of 20 people. The front of my line decided to split and I ended up leading the end of the line. They thought they would be the last line and get extra time with the members, but the were the next line called.

The staff ushered my line into the room to line up against the wall. When I was leaning against the wall I looked up and Jooheon was staring at me. He looked me up and down, while smiling at me. I smiled back at him and scanned down the rest of the line. Wonho was at the end of the line staring me down. He didn’t shift his eyes away from me when I caught him. This man just kept staring, until they called that the picture was being taken.😳😳

While the group was leaving the staff asked me to lead my line up to the group. As I walked passed Jooheon smiled again; Kihyun leaned down, smiling, holding his hand out for me to grab and told me thank you; Minhyuk did the same exact thing - they repeated what I did during my high touch; Shownu looked at me and shifted his eyes away quickly; I.M. smiled/waved at me and I did the same.😆

Wonho was last in the line and who I stood in front of. Smh.💆💆 That man is nothing but a flirt.

When I got to him I turned around and looked at him for a few seconds. I turned to say “Hey!” to I.M. when I felt Wonho put his hand on my lower back. I put my hand over my mouth because I was genuinely shook. 🙊He kept his hand there until I turned back around to face him.

I looked at this man from head to toe because he was looking godly. I stared in his eyes and he smirked while lifting his eyebrows. I continued to look him over and he started shifting on his feet. The girl beside me turned and told him “Don’t try and make yourself look taller,” but he didn’t understand her. He turned to her and said “Hmm?” and looked back at me. I don’t know where my boldness came from, but I looked him in his eyes and said “You’re gorgeous.” 😍😘He tilted his head, leaned down and repeated “gor geous.” I thought he didn’t understand what I said so I smiled, looked him in his eyes again and said “You are gorgeous” slowly so he could catch it. He heard me the second time and his reaction surprised me. He scanned my face and smiled a little before he caught himself. But he looked away from me while covering his mouth with his hand.🙊🙊 He kept his hand there for a few seconds until they were about to take the picture. Before I turned back around I told him “Don’t act shy now.“💀💀 That man was all kinds of rude and disrespectful at that concert.

After the picture was taken, I turned back around to talk to him some more and he was already looking at me waiting for me to speak. But before I had the chance I girl rushed from the end of the line and asked him could she get a hug. We both turned to look at her with a blank expression. 😐😐Of course he nodded his head and he put his arm around her. After she let go he turned back to me and I legit forgot what I was gonna say. So I just asked him could I get a hug and his reaction was totally different.

He smiled, opened his arms wide and motioned with his hands for me to come closer. I stepped into his arms and wrapped my arms around him. I spread my hands wide because I wanted to feel the muscles in his back. Don’t judge me his selfie made me want to feel them. 😂😂I don’t know if he tensed his back, but I felt all the muscles I saw in that pic.👀👀 After I wrapped my arms around him, he wrapped his arms around me. He pulled me close and squeezed me slightly. I had so many emotions running through me. It felt like he was trying to snatch my soul. 😭😭I was so close my head was laying on his chest. We hugged for about 10 seconds, then I let go first smiling at him. He leaned back and smiled while letting me go. Before I left I turned back to the other members. Kihyun, Minhyuk, and Jooheon smiled and waved at me. Shownu looked at me and nodded his head, while I.M. was talking to someone else. Wonho and I smiled at each other again and I walked out the door. I low key felt bad like I was cheating on Shownu.😅

That was the best night of my life. My first Kpop concert and I got so much love from my bias group. 😘😍If you get the chance to see them live, take it. You won’t regret it.🙌🙌

Three quarters of dream, one of reality

Warning: hand jobs

We all know because of whom I wrote this. And we all know because of which song. The problem is I heard the story and wrote this thing before checking the lyrics, so it doesn’t really match. And I wrote it, checked lyrics, decided to rewrite this, but in the end – I just like it so I didn’t, so there you go.


“I can’t believe you dragged me out there for our date. We don’t get many of those, you know?” Jongdae was reeling. In his mind – rightfully so. Their schedules never matched. And when he said never he meant never. In his line of work he didn’t get a lot of free time, and to make matter worse she was a student, working late gastro shifts on top of that.

Whenever you have like M/V making, he’d always be there to bring the staffs, your members and you some snacks with a sticker of your face on it. And when you have concerts, he’d also be there to watch you with his friends. When you’re also having a comeback, Shownu would literally make his friends and fam to vote for your group and would even send you encouraging messages to keep you going. Shownu would also be there by your side whenever your down and would remind you that this was your dream and that he’d always be there for you to support you.

Wonho; This boy would probably be at every fan meet your group has and would surprise you with flowers to be honest. He’d have a cheesy pick-up line written on a card and he’d give it to you and he’d also be the reason why the line gets to move so slow since he doesn’t want to let go of your hands yet. Wonho would also be the type of fan slash boyfriend to have all of your albums and would even post about it, writing a written message below every picture and would also promote you guys to be honest. And sometimes when you’re away in tour, he’d send you a couple of video messages with him sending you hearts and would be like i miss my bias… can my senpai notice me? and whatnot. Sometimes, during a concert, Wonho would be the loudest among his friends, he’d have a banner raised for you and would literally smile widely when you’d wink at him or something.

Minhyuk; Minhyuk would be at the very front rows during your concerts and would even surprise you whenever you were coming back from another country. He’d be extra early at the airport with a banner in his hand while he waits for you to walk down the arrival gate. Sometimes, he’d be like Shownu, he’d also have a lot of snacks prepared for your group and staffs and would be cheering extra hard for you when you’re doing some recording. Whenever you’re stressed out, Minhyuk would also send you a dance cover of your new song, only to have you spirits liven up. And when you’re on your world tour, he’d be at one of venues, totally surprising you when you saw him reaching his hands for you. Minhyuk would also be the type of fan who’d be cheering for you loudly whenever you come out from the stage or even at fan meets.

Originally posted by lostinmonstax

Kihyun; Kihyun would also be the type of fan to make some lunch boxes for you and your group mates. And he’d also be the type to send some snacks for you and your friends to munch on and he’d also bake a congratulatory cake whenever you get your first win and whatnot. Kihyun wouldn’t be that out of his efforts but he’d always be there to support you during your concerts and fan meets. And sometimes when there’s this surprise video message from a family member or special someone during a concert, Kihyun would be up to send you the greasiest message ever, making everyone squeal even louder when he comes out with a bouquet of roses. Kihyun would also be a member of your fan cafe and he would seriously urge your fans to vote for your group.

Originally posted by 93kihyun

Hyungwon; Hyungwon wouldn’t be that showy but he’d be there during your fan meets, surprising you with a big hug and a kiss, making the fans squeal. Sometime, he’d send your events flowers to congratulate all of you and would also send you fan gifts. Whenever the two of you are hanging out, he’d always have a lot of candid photos of you that he’d also like post it on his own blog, making you chuckle at the thought. And when he’s at your concert and you spotted him, he’d send you a finger heart before he gets teased by Jooheon. Hyungwon would also be the one to buy albums for your comeback and would give them to his friends who are also a fan of yours and would encourage them to vote for your group.

Originally posted by jooheonbebe

Jooheon; Jooheon would also be there to help you out to be honest. Sometimes, when you’re on V Live, Jooheon would always be watching every single V Live you guys have and he’d always send some comments, making you smile. When it’s your groups anniversary, he’d buy you and your members presents or he would even hold an event with your fans to surprise each and everyone of you. Jooheon would also be like Wonho to be honest, he’d be cheering for you loudly during a concert and would have a banner written ‘I love you [y/n]!!!” Jooheon would also buy your albums and even merchandises in order to support your group and he’d also be the type to go to the fan meets and have you answer a couple of questions for the fans.

I.M; Changkyun would be the type to text you right away after watching your M/V, like he’d be whining why you’re so beautiful or hot and what not. Changkyun would also be the type to bring the crew and your members sandwiches or bento boxes during a photoshoot of yours and whatnot. Changkyun would also be part of the crowd during your performances and would also take care of them by giving them hot packs and he’d also hold meetings with you and your fans during your birthday and anniversary. Sometimes, he’d also make a coverof your song and have it posted on youtube and he’d send it to you to be honest, only to have you share it with your members and even the president!!

dangerdanii  asked:

Hi there!!~ Today's my birthday and that just gives me the question: How would the UT/UF/US/SF bros surprise S/O for their birthday?? :)

(*OH HEY, HAPPY BIRTHDAAAAYYYY!  <3  I HOPE YOU’RE HAVING A FANTASTIC DAY FILLED WITH CAKE AND WISHES AND SUPER HAWT SKELES. =D  )


UT!Sans:

He forgot.

The entire day, you think that you’ve got some kind of big date planned, but all he does is take you to the movies and casually falls asleep with his head resting on your shoulder and your fingers entwined.  He doesn’t mention your birthday, and it’s a shame.. because you got dressed up.  You’ve known that he was super laid-back and never really made a big deal about anything, but you also expected him to not forget something like this.  Even if he had just wished you a happy birthday, it would have been nice.

Or if he had even stayed awake during the movie.

You’re frustrated, but you’re still holding onto hope that he’s going to remember.  You start casually dropping hints about cake, but he just makes a few jokes that normally draw a laugh from you, but this time, just leave you irritated.  By the time you get back to his house, you’re hurt.

… And then, when you open the door, all of your friends pop out and Papyrus and Undyne are collectively holding the biggest cake you’ve ever seen.  You start to tear up and turn toward Sans, who shrugs and winks at you.  "what?  you didn’t think i was really going to forget something like your birthday, right?  give me a little cred here, kiddo.“  He chuckles and slips an arm around your waist, pressing his teeth to your cheek.  He’s pulled out all the stops; all your favorite foods are there, your favorite music is playing, and your favorite people have gathered.  A bulk of the presents are also from him, and they’re all things that you’ve never out-right verbalized that you’ve wanted; he pays attention to the little details when he’s out with you.

After everyone’s gone, he’s going to fall asleep with you in his arms.

UT!Papyrus:

YOUR BIRTHDAY IS INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT TO THE GREAT PAPYRUS!

Sans always makes a huge deal about Papyrus’s birthday, so it’s only natural that he should want to do the same for yours!  Papyrus has spent weeks learning how to bake a cake just for you (it’s still going to taste questionable, and the crunchy bits are eggshells, but he tried really hard, so if you could stomach a piece that’d be great), but before you get to taste it, he wants to take you to all your favorite date spots.  That restaurant you love going to?  You’re there.  Have you ever mentioned roller skating before?  Well, he’s game to try it.  The entire day is devoted to making you happy, and he’s so active that it’s going to be difficult keeping up with him.  

He keeps assuring you that "THIS IS THE GREATEST DATE BECAUSE IT’S ON THE DAY OF YOUR BIRTH!  WE HAVE TO CELEBRATE APPROPRIATELY TO MARK SUCH A MONUMENTAL OCCASION!”  Whatever you suggest, he’s all over with a passion.  He’s going to sing to you when you go back to his house, and he’s especially excited over your wish, but “BUT DON’T ME WHAT IT WAS OR IT WON’T COME TRUE!  BUT I HOPE THAT.. THAT I’LL BE ABLE TO GRANT IT FOR YOU!”

His gift is a hand-made scarf to match his in your favorite color.

Feel free to spend the night cuddled up to him in his race car bed because that’s frankly the best way to end any birthday celebration.

UF!Sans:

You wake up to a selfie of Red shirtless and halfway covered up by his crimson bed sheets, a devious smirk on his face.  The body of the message reads:  "happy birthday, sweetheart.“

It’s going to be a good day.

He’s bought you a cake, sure, but he’s also gotten his hands on quite a few chocolate-covered strawberries–because he heard they were sensual.  He wants to hand-feed you the strawberries, and the intensity of his eyelights on your face as you eat them incites a blush that he finds adorable.  The day is going to be spent in his house, either on the couch or in his room, though if you insist on going out, he’ll end up complying.  He’d prefer to just stay inside and keep you to himself, however.  He wants you wrapped up in his arms, and yeah, he’s going to be a little handsy.  

For your present, he’s gotten you a bracelet.  It’s simple, with a little skull-and-crossbones charm hanging from it, but the idea of you wearing something that makes you think of him every time you look down at your arm makes him really pleased.  

Red sings happy birthday to you, and with all the lights out and the flickering candles on the cake dancing across his features, you feel like it’s the best part of the night.  His voice is deep and rough, but he’s got a surprisingly good singing voice, and with his arms around your waist and his mouth close to your ear, it’s enough to make you melt.  

UF!Papyrus:

"THIS IS GOING TO BE THE GREATEST BIRTHDAY YOU’VE EVER HAD, SO PREPARE YOURSELF!”

You’d better dress up for this one.  Papyrus is taking you to the fanciest restaurant (how in the world did he ever get reservations?  You decide not to question this one), and afterward, you’re going dancing with him. A little known fact about Edgy is that he’s a fantastic dancer, and even if you’re not, it doesn’t matter when he leads you through the steps so expertly.  His usual scowl even softens a little when he dips you back, and by the time you’re finished dancing, he’s smirking at you triumphantly.  "ARE YOU HAVING THE BEST NIGHT OF YOUR LIFE YET?“  

Back home, his gift is going to be a stylish leather jacket that somehow fits you perfectly.  You’re pretty sure he added a few studs to it himself to make it look a little edgier, but it only makes you appreciate the gift more.  He tried to bake you a cake, but it turned into an oozing, gloopy mess, so he disposed of it and was forced to buy you one from the store.  He mumbled the happy birthday song under his breath while avoiding eye contact and then urges you to "USE YOUR OPPORTUNITY FOR A WISH WISELY!  ..AND THEN TELL ME WHAT YOU WISHED FOR!”  

US!Sans:

Blueberry wakes you up at your house– even if he doesn’t have a key or didn’t stay the night, he’s there.  He pounces on your bed and straddles you so he can lean down in your face.  "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!  I WANTED TO MAKE SURE I WAS THE FIRST ONE TO TELL YOU!“

..He says this despite the fact that he called you last night/this morning at precisely midnight and sang happy birthday to you.

The day is spent much like the one with UT!Papyrus; he takes you wherever you want to go, only dinner’s at his place.  He’s cooked tacos (with heaps of glitter) and baked a lop-sided cake.  Both of these creations aren’t going to be pleasant, but he’s so excited for you to try it that you can’t refuse.  He’s going to get Stretch downstairs to help him sing happy birthday to you, and then the three of you can watch movies on the couch while Blueberry cuddles into your side.  

Ultimately, you fall asleep on the couch with him gathered in your arms and your turned with you back resting against Stretch’s shoulder.  

For a gift, Sans got you a rather large plushie because he wants you to sleep with something that reminds you of him when he’s not sleeping over in your bed or vice-versa.    

US!Papyrus:

Stretch had a cake made for you at Muffet’s, and while he’d rather spend the day just chilling and watching TV on the couch with you, he’s going to make an effort to make the day special.

That means you get a picnic in the park.  

Stretch is actually a decent cook, though he’s whipped up a few different sandwiches and snacks to bring.  He’s scouted out the best place in the park to roll out a blanket, and after your lunch, he’s going to just pull you back to rest your head against his chest and enjoy staring up at the clouds rolling by.  

When you’re finished with that, he takes you to a bar that’s got a live band playing that’s just your kind of music.  Whether or not you drink, you still end up seated in the back, listening to the band while being tucked beneath Papyrus’s arm.  If he’s had a few drinks, you’ll be able to coax him into dancing, but otherwise, he’s just going to tap his foot along with the beat.  

Afterward, he gives you a gift pertaining to your biggest interest.  If you’re an artist, you get a sketchpad or new watercolors/colored pencils.  If writing/reading is more your thing, you get a book you’ve been lowkey wanting.  If you happen to collect glass figurines of crying clowns, well he has a whole shitload of those in a box just for you.  Papyrus is way more perceptive than others give him credit for.

He sings to you, his voice low and mellow, standing behind you with his hands resting on your waist and his face right beside yours.  

SF!Sans:

YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE A FANTASTIC TIME BEFITTING THE SIGNIFICANT OTHER OF THE MALEVOLENT SANS!!

That means.. you’re going to a theme park!

Did I mention Sans’s brother is coming, too?  Yeah, Papy’s coming because there’s no way in hell that Sans is going to stand in all of those lines, so he wants some back-up intimidating the crowds of humans.  Two skeletons that look as rough and sharp-edged as they do happen to be the ticket to the front of the line, and no one dares to say anything.  At this point, you’re used to receiving some dirty stares from things Sans may say/do, so you’re not even phased.  The three of you ride everything–twice–and on your way back home, Sans pulls over to eat at a nice restaurant.  Papyrus takes a shortcut home.

Since Blackberry failed miserably when he attempted to make you a cake, he relies on the free dessert your waitress brings out when he tells her it’s your birthday.  Embarrassingly enough, a giant group of the staff comes out to sing you happy birthday, and Sans jumps on the opportunity to mouth the words of the song along with them.  Yeah, he doesn’t sing; his face is flushed with the mere thought of it.  

After dinner, he drives you back to his house, where he gives you a collar like Papyrus’s as a gift.  Then, he spends the rest of the night clung to you, repeatedly asking you if you had a memorable birthday and then DEMANDING to know what you wished for when you blew out your candles.  

SF!Papyrus:

Papyrus doesn’t want to really go anywhere for your birthday; he’d much rather spend it at your house.  So, he brings over a cake he bought, candles, a gift, a stack of movies, and sets everything up while you’re still asleep.  When you wake up, he’s napping next to you on your bed, his arm lazily thrown across your waist.

"happy birthday, sweetie,” he mumbles when you wake up, pulling you against his chest and nuzzling his face into your neck.  He takes his time getting out of bed with you–and hey, if you decide to grab a quick shower, he’s going to ask if you want company with a sharp smirk.  Once you’re ready to start the party, he’s going to order a pizza and spend the day watching movies with you in bed/on the couch.  If you’ve ever wondered what a massage would feel like with skeleton hands, well you’re in luck because you’re about to find out!  He pampers you, and when it comes time for the gift, it turns out that he’s gotten you something pertaining to your hobbies as well as a simple necklace–with a heart the color of your SOUL.  After all, that’s the part he always finds the most beautiful of all when it comes to you.

He sings you happy birthday in a low, smooth baritone, his fingertips trailing along the skin of your lower back, just beneath the hem of your shirt.  When he’s done, he leans in until his fangs are close enough to skim your earlobe and says, “make a wish~.”

Kris Versteeg on the Calgary Flames’ 2016-17 season: It was a special year […] There’s times hockey’s not easy, you know. You’re a professional athlete, and you wanna love it. People think you love it all the time and you know, I had a couple years there where I think things personally were going good, but it’s almost like you weren’t having fun every day at the rink. This year was one of those years where not every day is great or perfect, but you could kind of fall in love with being at the rink again and fall in love with being with the sport. It was amazing just to be around the guys, a great group of guys. Coaching staff made it fun every day and they really let your personality - each individual’s personality - come out, and I think that’s what great teams do […] It was a lot of fun and you just kind of got to be yourself and I just loved every minute of it.

Stranger in a Crowd

Prompt: Imagine Remy LeBeau (Gambit) seeing you in a crowded street and he just has to meet you.

Word Count: 1782

Warnings: Maybe language? A non gorey fight scene? Other than that it’s pure unadulterated fluff, y’all.

Note: Beta’d by the great @like-a-bag-of-potatoes. Also, this is my first Gambit fic and I REALLY wanted a southern fic lately.

Remy’s POV

Tonight wasn’t as humid as it usually was around Mardi Gras, but my lord, it was warm. The sea of bodies didn’t help a thing, either. My eyes scanned the crowd as I walked, checking for any threats. I hadn’t been bothered in a few weeks, which was nice, so tonight, in celebration of Fat Tuesday, why not have a little game of cards with some poor unsuspecting fellow at a nice watering hole? Of course, the French Quarter was crawling with tourists as beads flew, the smell of alcohol sweeping the streets, the perfume of seafood hitting my nostrils as I walked along, the warm air clinging to my skin like a blanket.

I had to find a good bar, and soon. The sun was setting, casting a handsome pinkish blue into the sky above us, but when the sun sets in New Awlins, lord, you better hold onto your hat here in the French Quarter.

Just as I looked up, I saw her. Her face was…it was like lookin’ into the face of an angel. My word…Her lips, her eyes, her mere presence was piercing. The way her hair swirled as a cool wind whipped through the streets and alleys. I don’t know what it was about her but she was completely captivatin’. Like a siren in the night, I was drawn to this girl.

“And you look like a douche, you’ll fit right in.” You heard Dean say as he slapped Sam’s back in the other room.
You chuckled to yourself, “He can’t look that bad.” You yelled from the bathroom while you fixed your makeup.
“Oh no, he’s right, (Y/N/N), I look like a douche.” Sam replied.
You quickly walked out of the bathroom, in a short 50’s style floral halter sundress and a pair of wedge sandals, to witness Sam’s attire and immediately you heard a cat call whistle. “Yowza! Sweetheart you look great!” Dean hooted. “Doesn’t she look good, Sammy?”
Sam cleared his throat, “uh yeah… she looks real nice.”
“Tell me again, why do you get to play her husband on this case? “Dean asked in a jealous tone.
“Because…we are closer in age, so that’s more believable.” Sam responded.
“Also Sam can act like a much better douche than you can, Deano.” You added mocking Sam.
“Hey, hey, that is no way to talk to your husband.” Sam sassed back.

Your body seemed to be paralysed as the 5 foot 10 inch male walked to stand next to you. Your heart raced at an unbelievable speed as you turned to greet him, giving a small smile while he flashed a wide grin. The staff member in front of you handed you the mic and briefed you on your performance as you tried to shake off all thoughts related to the man standing next to you.

“You two will be the 20th performer today, so rehearsals will start in about 15 minutes time, do get ready.”

And you were now left alone with him.
