Touching (can be NSFW or innocent): (Both. Both is good.)
It’s a rare sight to see Rowan and Aelin not touching each other in some way. They are quite physical when it comes to showing affectionate displays.
Aelin claims that Rowan’s crown is crooked or that his hair is ruffled in a mess from flying so that she has the excuse to run her fingers through his white hair.
Note: Aelin has a weakness for petting animals so sometimes the Cadre will shift in their animal forms when she is angry and more often then not she will melt at the sight and proceed to have a petting session.
Another Note: Fenrys and Connall will shift into wolf forms for Aelin to pet them just to piss off Rowan as Aelin’s attention is fixed on the twins instead of Rowan who jealousy seethes on the throne.
The Queen of Terrasen also is a fan running her hand up and down Rowan’s thighs during meetings
Honestly it’s a game they play in which Rowan attempts to maintain his composure as his mate inches further up and up his leg until she at last holds the hardened weight of him in her hands
One time Aelin managed to unsnap one of his pant buttons, before Aelin’s Court, specifically Aedion and Lorcan, immediately requested that they continue the meeting another time since they knew it was only a matter of seconds before the Queen and King were about to use the table for reasons other than the use for political meetings.
Rowan will trace imaginary patterns on Aelin’s skin.
He usually runs his fingers in swirling motions to get an idea for any new tattoos he could give his wife.
His innocent touching though turns into heated brushes of skin as he runs in calloused hands up Aelin’s body and underneath one of those tempting nightgowns she always has.
Eventually his hands are toying with her breasts and he is sinking deep into her folds in a rough play for dominance.
What “turns them on” Headcanon:
Aelin is all about trying to get Rowan to grow his hair back out. When he does she can finally play with it and pull on it during sex.
“Do you think if I pull you hair hard enough would some of your feathers be plucked in your other form?”
“And do you think if I make you scream loud enough for me in pleasure would you bring down the Staghorns mountain range my Fireheart?”
She also can’t deny that watching Rowan wrestle with the rest of the Cadre gets her turned on. (A fact that most of the Terrasen Court can agree on.)
Seeing Rowan mud-splattered with sweat running down his chest is feast for Aelin’s eyes.
Rowan was never one to enjoy fancy material items, but he now is one of the most visited customers at a woman’s intimate store where he buys Aelin all sorts of lacy, sheer and silk garments.
He can no longer bring Aelin to the store, because one time they did and they ended up clearing out the backrooms due to their loud session of “trying out the garments”
Rowan immediately gets turned on when Aelin nips at his ear or neck. Feeling her teeth grazing against his skin unleashes the primal urge to claim her right there on the spot.
It looks like 2017 may be the year we see a big comeback from Sonic and friends.
Sega have launched the brand new demo for Sonic Forces atthier booth at E3 this week, playable on a variety of consoles. I managed to get hands on with the Nintendo Switch version for 10 minutes of turbo paced craziness.
Sonic Forces stars the infamous blue Hedgehog that we all know and love, but this time things are a little different. Not only has he been rendered in glorious 3D, but out hero has been thrust into all new dimensions.
Since Sonic first graced our screens in the early 90s, the franchise boasts a devote following and over 350 million games sold and this series still has so much potential to grow.
Alongside Forces, Sonic Mania will also be also be joining in making its console debut this Holiday Season. Mania offers something a little different to Forces, appealing more towards older fans who cherished the original 8bit games on the Genesis, Sonic Mania aims to bring the signature retro aesthetic, offering playability on a variety of different platforms.
My time with Sonic Forces was fleeting but a lot of fun. After awkwardly side stepping the guy clad in a gigantic Sonic costume (people in costumes unnerve me) I made my way to the station and picked up the Switch Console pad.
I chose the ‘Sonic’ Level which was a flurry of explosions and speed. I had to rush through the city, collecting rings and charging into robots at breakneck speed. With the change in perspective, this can be slightly dizzying and I was much more comfortable when at the end of the level, it switched to the classic side view that we all know and love.
The next level I tried was nostalgic nod to the series’s original boss, Eggman. He taunted me as he hovered ominously above in this ship-turned-pizza-slicer and it took me several attempts to complete without running straight into the blades in the process. Sonic Forces doesn’t use the conventional lives mechanic, the rings I managed to collect could not be picked up again if I was hit (and I was hit, a LOT) when collected, rings are merely stored away. Although this definitely changed things up a bit, it did feel a bit odd in contrast to the original method.
The second fight I entered with Eggman was a lot of fun, as he pressed a button and the ship turned into some time of transformer esque battle suit, he threw rocks, which I was absolutely rubbish at dodging and bombs which if I rolled into could be fired back in his face.
Unfortunately due to the sheer mass of people waiting in the que, that was all that I could experience before my time was up and I had to dash back past giant Sonic again.
There have been reveals of a character creation aspect which is an interesting addition and one I’d love to try next time.
In summary, Sonic Forces definitely woke up the kid in me and although it was somewhat erratic and overwhelming at times, there is definitely appeal for both long time fans and newcomers to the series.
Sonic Forces and Sonic Mania will be hitting consoles this holiday season on Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch

Summary: 68. “I don’t need help! I just want the pain to stop!” and 74. “I can’t take the loneliness anymore.” - How would Peter react to knowing that you aren’t feeling like yourself?
A/N: Okay, so this one has been really hard to write, for a lot of (mostly personal) reasons, but I didn’t want to leave you waiting any longer, so I decided to try it in head cannon format, but with the same general outline I would have used for a fic. I wanted to make a Homecoming reference, but I know a lot of people still haven’t gotten to see it, so I changed it. No Spoilers! THIS IS SPOILER FREE!! (If you’ve seen it you’ll probably notice what I wanted to reference.)
You’ve been feeling… off… for some time now.
You think you know what to call it, but somehow giving it a name will make you have to deal with it, and you’re still sort of hoping that it goes away on it’s own
You’ve started skipping Debate Team meetings when you can, it started at about every third meeting, and now it’s every other meeting, and sometimes two in a row
Your friends are starting to worry, especially Peter
Because he’s the one that convinced you to join the team, and you’d been doing so great
He’s worried that Flash said something that made you uncomfortable
Michelle was observant and told him ‘Flash didn’t do anything this time. And it’s not just Debate Team meetings she’s missing’
Peter doesn’t have any classes with you, so he asks Ned to keep an eye on you for him
He doesn’t like what he hears
Ned tells him about how you aren’t interacting with people any more
How you rush from place to place to avoid unnecessary conversations
Peter starts to notice that you’re barely responding to his messages anymore, and you don’t answer phone calls
so he takes matters into his own hands
On one of the rare meetings you go to, Peter manages to leave with you
tells you he’s walking you home since it’s on his way to his “internship”
Confronts you gently about it, but rambles and annoys you in the process
“Please tell me whats going on? You’re acting strange. We’ve all noticed”
The boy is bad at this
“Y/N, we just really miss you. If somethings going on, or if someone has done something that makes you feel weird, just, you know, tell me, and we’ll fix it.”
“Just Stop it, Peter! I don’t need help! I just want the pain to stop! And no one can do anything to fix it because nobody did anything to break me!”
You’re crying and angry, and Peter doesn’t know what to do, so he just wraps his arms around you
He pats your shoulder as you cry
His shoulder is damp now
He takes you back to his apartment, since you were practically at the front door anyway
He makes you a warm beverage of your choosing, offering you practically every option - May likes tea, and he likes cocoa, so there’s a lot to pick from
You finally tell him that nothing has been right for months and you don’t know why it started being like this
“I can’t take the loneliness anymore. Even when I’m around people I feel so alone because no one gets that I don’t feel like me anymore.”
Telling him how much you hate it that your parents have been telling you “well don’t be upset” and “you’ll feel better if you smile”
because that’s not what this is - it’s not a bad attitude
Peter being totally out of his depth because he’s not had to comfort someone like this before
But he’s smart and knows that therapy and medications - if you wanted those - are expensive
And he knows someone with a lot of resources
only asks Tony for help if you give him the okay
Tells you that he’s always there for you, and he’ll always listen, or distract you, or do whatever you need
he’ll always answer when you call
even in his suit - he’s got it so your calls automatically come through
He encourages you to try to keep doing at least one after school activity,
you do, because on the hard days it helps to remember the good days and the best days were at team meetings
He hovers a little, just enough to make sure no one is making you uncomfortable
The rest of the team don’t worry as much because they know Peter will tell them if something is wrong
Peter texting you randomly to make sure you know that its okay to feel this way and that you’re not alone
him starting to slip notes in your bag when you aren’t looking with random doodles to make you smile
swings by on patrol to make sure you’re okay
will text you if he sees you crying
*randomly* showed up for a visit a couple times when you looked really distraught
you still don’t know how he always knows when you need him
But you know you can always count on him
I’ve never done anything in this format before, so let me know if you liked it and want more like this, or what!
