“Wild.”, the two teenagers stood at the door of
the living room. They had come in the tower after midnight but the people had
been still parting hard. Peter and (Y/N) had spent some hours in Peter’s room
talking about their past and telling each other jokes until (Y/N) had fallen
asleep and Pete had moved her to her room.
“This will take ages to clean.”, the witch
complained while looking at the confetti, napkins, glasses, empty bottles on
the floor. There was even a spot on the carpet of wine and two others of whiskey
“Do not worry Mrs (Y/L/N) and Mr Parker. I
usually clean after the parties.”, a deep voice spoke from somewhere. It was
Jarvis. At the beginning (Y/N) always jumped at the sound but after some
weekends she got kind of used to it. Jarvis was like a friend to her, always
helping if had gotten lost or was searching for something.
“No, Jarvis. We will do it this time.”, (Y/N)
spoke and asked for some sacks where they could put all the rubbish.
“Yeah, it’s not a problem. Besides that, we’ll
spent some time together.”, as Peter said those words, both him and (Y/N)
blushed. Last night had changed their relationship. They were more confident
around each other, showed how much they admired the other. Yes, it sounded odd.
To change your attitude towards somebody just for five or six hours you had
spent together. That had surprised and scared our well-known little witch. The
past month was like the first years of a baby. She felt to so many things in
such a short period that it was hard for her to perceive what had happened.
Lately, she had decided just to feel everything rather than rationalizing it.
“I’ve wanted to ask you something since you
told us your story. But I’ve never felt comfortable with it…I-um…will it be
okay for you to talk about your scar?”, Peter questioned the girl as he put two
empty bottles of Jack Daniels in the sack. (Y/N) was slightly surprised by the
question. She had never thought somebody would be that interested in it.
“Yeah, go on.”
“Are you ashamed of it?”, the girl froze for a
moment. Why would he ask such a thing!? (Y/N) turned around looking at the boy.
She met his eyes and saw pure interest and soon regret as he saw her reaction,
“I’m sorry, I-I shouldn’t have as-asked that. Forge-forget about it.”, Peter
stuttered and turn around shamefaced.
“No, no. It just surprised me. I don’t
understand why you would ask me that.”
“I’ve seen you covering it almost all the time
but simultaneously you don’t act as though you care if somebody will see it or
“Oh.”, she exclaimed, “No, I am not ashamed of
it.”, she stated and images of her scar appeared in her head. When she had been
still in Hydra, she had been allowed to use only one small mirror. Even with
it, she had never seen her scar before she had come in the tower. (Y/N) was
either too close to death to think about it, or busy with training and moaning
from the pain, “The first time I saw it was when I came here. I wasn’t used to
mirrors so the big one in my room did surprise me. At first I was passing by
but the girl inside me saw an opportunity to show and one day I stood in front
of it looking at me, my pale face that was slowly gaining its color, my pale
body because of never being exposed under the sun, at my scar that wasn’t
covered in blood. I saw myself whole and I did like every part of it. It made
me who I am. Even the scar. You may think I was shocked, disgusted, ashamed of
it but no. Well, maybe part of me felt sad but I was proud.”, at that time
Peter and (Y/N) had sat in the clean part of the sofa. Pete was listening to
her in awe. He was amazed by her words and the way she was talking about such a
thing that could had caused her nightmares. The girl, on the other hand, was
fully immersed in what she was saying. The events she was talking about
overwhelmed her letting her feel the same emotions as she had done then, “I am
proud of it because it tells my story and reveals who I am. It shows what I’ve
been though and that I survived. When I was chained and whiplashed, I felt
death. Deep inside I believed that every time was my last. That with the next
close of my eyes, the agony would stop. I wanted that, Peter!”, the girl looked
at him and he saw the broken in them. The previous night, when they were
together, before and after the kiss she was smiling, shining like a star and
lighting his way. Now, his star was quenched, “I was at the threshold of giving
up. But I didn’t and that’s why I am not ashamed of my scar. It shows how
strong I am and I will always be proud I managed to escape this peaceful trap I
got myself into.”
For a moment, the boy just stood there not able
to say anything. He had lost the ability to talk being too impressed. He had
thought he had problems, with his high school troubles and nightly adventures.
He was falling for her more and more with every second passing. He wasn’t able
to stop it and was happy about it.
“Am I interrupting something?”, somebody asked
all of a sudden causing the two teenagers, who were obviously sharing a moment,
to jump, “Oh, sorry kids, didn’t want to scare you.”
“Hey, Colson!”, Peter greeted the man in the
TV, “How are you?”
“Perfectly good. And by what I see around you,
it must have been a rough night, huh?”, the man laughed at his words. Although
he was used to seeing his favourite Avengers with hangovers the next morning,
he still found their state funny.
“Well, maybe. We weren’t here but for the two
of us it was definitely a night to remember.”, (Y/N) smiled and stood take a
bottle because it wasn’t letting her see the man.
“Be careful, kids!”, he warned them with a
smirk on his baby face, “I don’t want to become a grandpa.”
“You are just like Mr. Stark!”, Peter
“Is there something important, Mr. Colson?”,
the girl changed the subject as she wasn’t that comfortable with the previous
“I’ve sent some information about a case. Tell
Steve and Natasha to check it when they wake up.”, he informed the teenagers in
front of him and said a goodbye giving the excuse he was busy. Then the screen
went black and the ‘kids’, as Colson had referred to them, were once again
“You know what? I am tired and I want to take a
rest. Why don’t we leave this to the others?”, (Y/N) suggested as she put the
sack on the floor, “It will be a lesson for them to learn.”
“I agree with you.”
“I’ll be in my room.”, the girl announced
without letting Peter suggest a way to spent the time. She knew he would do so
and she would had gladly accepted but right now she had something in mind that
had to be done. Peter found her behavior odd but gave it to the exhausted
(Y/N) rushed towards her room and once she was
inside she turned the key. Something in Colson’s behavior had shown that there
was a secret he was keeping. The way he looked for a second towards here and
the fact that he gulped nervously was enough for her to understand that the
secret was about her. Something had happened and it involved her. She had to
know what and why.
“Jarvis, can I ask you for a favor?”, the girl
asked as she sat on her bed.
“Yes, my lady, how can I help you?”, his voice
echoed through the room. (Y/N) took a deep breath and then spoke
“Can you show me the file Mr. Colson have sent?”,
the girl begged that her will would be fulfilled.
“I’m sorry, Mrs. (Y/L/N), but it’s only for Mr.
Rogers and Mrs. Romanoff.”
“Jarvis, I need to know about that file. Nobody
would know that I have read it.”, the girl stood and looked at one of the camera
in the corner of the room. Tony assured her that only Jarvis could turn it on
if he thinks someone is in danger, “I will get it eventually but since we are
like friends, I am asking you polite. Please, show me the file.”, (Y/N) spoke
softly yet firmly. Jarvis, of course, protested for some minutes but finally
“Here, but only for a second.”, her laptop
shined and she saw a file being opened.
The girl sat on the chair and looked at the
screen. There were some photos and a document. She decided to first open the
photos and then the text explaining them. She clicked on them and the first one
made her heart skip a beat. Woods, dead bodies, blood…(Y/N) clicked again and
the photo changed. This one wasn’t taken from a distance like the other. It gave
a better view on what had happened. She saw a kid laying on the ground dead. He
had two, three, four, five holes in his body from bullets. The trees around the
body were burnt, the grass too. (Y/N) knew those blonde curls, now having a red
liquid in their ends, the pale face and the dark blue eyes that were looking at
her. Biting her lip she opened the next photos. There were three more children
and one boy around her age. Every one of them was surrounded by the damages
their powers had caused. The witch was aware what had happened without even
opening the file. However, she did it only to make sure she was wrong. Sadly,
her thoughts were real. These kids had been killed by Hydra agents two
kilometers away from the base where she had been kept. (Y/N) closed the laptop
and turned around on the chair. She positioned her elbows in her knees and
buried her head in her hands. Breathing in and out she tried to rationalize
what she had seen. Those children weren’t more than 12, except the boy who was
16. Some of them had marks on them with the famous symbol of Hydra. Just like
her, they had been marked no matter it was in a different way. She had to do
something, she wanted to. Through the tenth years she had spent in the base,
other kids had been coming, kidnapped from their parents. Some of them were
orphans but others weren’t. They had families, friends, people who loved and
adored them. And now? They were dead, lying on the woods where nobody could
find them. They were thrown away like rubbish, killed as though they had been
wild animals. Rage kept rising in (Y/N)’s body. She felt something that she
hadn’t experienced for a month. But this time she didn’t try to stop it.
I love thinking about Oliver and Thea’s relationship in light of their age difference.
Little nine-year-old Oliver. He’s not quite an only child (despite what people think) because he and Tommy have been brothers for years, especially since Tommy’s mother died. Now Tommy practically lives with them. Tommy’s actually with Oliver when he’s told the news that he’s going to have a new little sister.
Ten-year-old Oliver, sitting on the big couch in one of the sitting room’s in the mansion, carefully holding his baby sister on his lap, staring in awe at the tiny little person. Around him he senses the tension in the adults. Senses something’s off. When they step out of the room, his parents aren’t quite as happy as they should be. It all softens around Baby Thea, but it still seems connected to her somehow. And from it Oliver feels a strong need to protect his tiny sister. Tommy comes over to play but before going anywhere he’s sat down on the couch alongside Oliver and given Thea to hold.
Twelve-year-old Oliver, holding onto 2-year-old Thea’s pudgy little hands as she takes tottering steps down the halls of Queen Mansion. And when she begins to talk, the way she can’t quite form the L’s in his name so she just forms her own garbled version of his name. Tommy joining in trying to teach her to say his name.
Fifteen-year-old Oliver coming home from high school, in trouble for failing a few of his classes and for ditching school with some new girl. But his scowl melts away when five-year-old Thea comes running out of her room, wearing a plastic tiara, cowboy boots and their mother’s necklace, wanting to play. She chases him around the upper halls of the mansion. He lets her catch him and calls her Speedy. Tommy arrives to sneak him off to some party, but before they go, Tommy gives Thea a piggy-back ride up and down the hall.
Seventeen-year-old Oliver, nursing a hangover, avoiding a girl whose name he can’t remember, hoping his parents don’t find out about the incident with the cop, staying home to babysit seven-year-old Thea so that Raisa can leave despite his parents not being home yet. They sit on the couch and watch the Princess Diaries, while Thea insists that the character’s name is “Thea” not “Mia” and Oliver assures her that she is really a princess.
Eighteen-year-old Oliver leaving for college and eight-year-old Thea crying and asking him not to go before running off to sulk in her room. Tommy takes her to ice-cream the next day to make her feel better. A few months later, when Oliver returns home, Thea’s excitement almost makes him feel better about being kicked out.
Eleven-year-old Thea telling twenty-one-year-old Oliver that everything will be alright as he gets ready to go to court for attacking a paparazzi. Tommy overhearing and telling him that Thea knows best and he should listen to her.
Twenty-two-year-old Oliver kicked out of another school, still reeling from what happened with Samantha and the child they lost, panicking in response to the pressure from Laurel, texting Sara things he knows he shouldn’t gearing up to ask her to do the unthinkable, pushing all that aside for a little while because twelve-year-old Thea wants to tell him about her day and the plans she’s making with her friends and the boy she thinks is cute and Oliver for just a little while feeling calm and happy sitting on the arm of a chair in her room listening to her.
Twelve-year-old Thea sitting in her room, staring at a wall trying to process the fact that her dad and brother are dead. Tommy takes her to ice-cream like he used to. There she breaks down and sobs and he hugs her and cries too.
Seventeen-year-old Thea learning that her big brother is alive and believing for a little bit that everything that’s been broken for so long will be fixed when he gets home. She calls Tommy and they laugh and cry together on the phone.
Twenty-seven-year-old Oliver coming home and finding that seventeen-year-old Thea is everything that broke him before the Island and wanting to help, to fix her, but unable to reach out because he feels he is so far past broken. How can he let hands with so much blood on them go anywhere near his baby sister? He tries but he can’t talk to her and she can’t talk to him because they’ve entered different worlds. Her big brother is still dead and his little sister is still lost to him.
Thirty-year-old Oliver watching his dying sister, doing everything he can to help her and thinking about everything she’s never had. The father, the mother and the brother that she lost. The college she never went to. The career she didn’t build. The boyfriend who was forced to leave. The pain she went through, the darkness she let into herself. All because he came back into her life four years ago. Since she was born he wanted to protect her, but now he sees how much he failed, how much he dragged her down with him.
Thirty-two-year old Oliver seeing his baby sister grown up, letting herself heal, rediscovering her family ties. A warrior who isn’t trapped in battle. A capable woman in any career she chooses. Twenty-two, the age he was when his life fell apart but she’s just heading into the best part of hers. And she sees him, her big brother restored- a leader, a warrior, a hero- everything he was to her when she was little now for all the world to see.

-Omegas in their late teens going through a phase of “all Alphas are stupid and I’ll be just fine if I never mate with one” and that phase ends the day they come home from school and gush to their Omega parent about an Alpha they just met “he’s way different than the other Alphas, I’m sure of it mom” and the Omega parent just nodding along while their child chatters on
-An Omega trying to hide a relationship from their parents and panicking when they can’t get the Alpha’s scent off of them…only to find out their Omega parent already knew, because mothers know everything, and they help them get the scent off before their Alpha parent gets home. But they do tell their Omega child that they expect to meet the Alpha soon
-An Omega being very introverted and having to be practically dragged from their nest to be made to go out and socialize because “at this rate you’ll never meet a decent Alpha”
-An Alpha in high school who has trouble focusing on school work and is always turning their work in late while their Omega sibling gets straight A’s.

-Beta teens going through emo phases because “in the grand scheme of things, we don’t matter as much as the other dynamics”

-Overprotective Alpha parents being worried when their Omega teenager goes out with friends so they pace the living room and repeatedly check out the blinds until they get back, the whole time their mate just sits on the couch watching on in amusement
What about something like Pining! Shiro with Confused/Oblivious! Lance? Like Shiro casually doing things for Lance and going out of his way sometimes and Lance just being like "?? Thanks?!" Meanwhile everyone else on the ship is like "How the hell does he not NOTICE?!" Prolly at the end or something Shiro, exasperated sits somewhere and Lance asks him whats wrong and shyly confesses.
Been so busy the last few days, but I finally found some time to write up something quick. I hope you enjoy it!
“How can he be so cute and yet so aggravating at the same time! I just want to grab by the arms and kiss him!”
“Then just do that. Since your ‘flirting’ doesn’t seem to be working on him.”
“Keith I can’t just do that! What if he isn’t into guys, or if he thinks I’m too old.”
“Shiro you are literally a year or two older, i don’t think he’ll think you’re too old. And I’m very sure he’s into guys. Just ask him out already!”
Shiro hangs his head off the bed and hides behind his hands with a frustrated groan. How is it that Lance can make him feel like he’s high school girl having trouble asking out the cute guy. He doesn’t know how to go up to him and just ask him out. No, instead he’s laying on Keith’s bed complaining about how much Lance makes him want to just scoop him and never let go.
“But I don’t want to seem overbearing. I’m the leader, I don’t want it to seem like he HAS to date me. I don’t want him to feel forced into it.”
He could hear Keith give out his own groan, feeling the bed give as Keith sits next to him. Shiro moves his hands so he can look at Keith, who looks about ready to shove Shiro right at Lance.
“I don’t know why you come to me with your crush problems. You know I have zero knowledge or need of romantic relationships. Just talk to him!”
Shiro opens his mouth to protest, but Keith beats him to the punch.
“And if you say that you can’t i will not hesitate to just tell him myself!”
“Now you’ll have to talk to him, or I will.”
With a defeated sigh, Shiro gets up from Keith’s bed, and with a solemn good night, leaves Keith’s room.
There has to be some way for Lance to get the hint that Shiro likes him. But he’s already tried most things. He’s tried flirting; Lance thought he was joking and merely shot cheesy flirts back while laughing his cute laugh, which did not help since each one of them kind of worked on Shiro. He’s tried giving him gifts; which Lance always thanks him for being such a good friend. And he’ll give him that warm smile that could melt Shiro’s heart if he looked at it for too long (which he was perfectly fine with, as long as he got to see such a sweet expression on Lance’s face) he’s even tried spending one on one time with lance; joining him on his spa days, walking with him whenever they go to a swap moon. But he’ll just call it ‘bro-time’ and be completely oblivious! It was so aggravating that Lance just doesn’t get how much he cares, how much he just wants to be with him.
What’s worse that EVERYONE else on the ship can see it, but Lance is so clueless to his advances. Shiro has already had ‘the talk’ with Coran, and while some of his threats didn’t make any sense, the tone alone was enough to know that whatever he was saying was not to be taken lightly. Pidge will always just give him that knowing smirk and will call Shiro out whenever she catches him staring at Lance for too long (but can you blame him?) Hunk has tried to help by getting Lance and Shiro some time alone, not that it ever works, but it’s still nice of him to help. Even Allura has caught on and has suggested some ways to getting Lance’s attention.
Wait. That’s it! Allura mentioned before about taking Lance out on a date. That might be it! There’s no way Lance wouldn’t be able to get the message if Shiro went all out. There’s no way.
The date went off great! When they landed on the nearest planet, Shiro took Lance to one of the restaurants that the king of the planet had suggested. While the food was a little…..exotic, they had a lot of fun trying it out, Shiro was even able to feed Lance. If that doesn’t scream romantic, shiro doesn’t know what does. After the meal, they went on a walk and talked endlessly about pretty much anything; the color of the sky on this planet to what their favorite music was.
It was perfect!
Once they got back to the castle, The rest of the team is waiting for them.
“So….how did it go?” Allura coos.
“That restaurant was great! It was nice getting out of the castle.” Lance replied.
“Did you two have fun out on your date?” Pidge blatantly states, not even looking up from her laptop.
“Date? Pidge I don’t know what you’re talking about….”
“This was just two guys hanging out and exploring a new planet.” Lance finishes. Leaving everyone dumbstruck, even Pidge looked up from her screen to give Lance an ‘are you serious?’ expression.
Lance doesn’t think it was a date.
“You can’t be serious?” Keith deadpanned.
“Yes I’m serious, mullet. What made you think it was a date?”
“What about it WASN’T A DATE!” Keith yells back.
Lance just answers him with a dismissive wave of his hand, beginning to walk out of the main corridor. “I’m gonna hit the hay, see you in the morning!”
And with that he turns into the next hallway and he’s gone.
Shiro can only look at the floor, crushed.
“Just how blind is he?” Pidge chirps up, giving him a pat on the back “nice try. I’m sure he’ll figure it out. Eventually.” She wishes everyone a goodnight and heads off on the same direction that Lance took. Hunk give him a big hug and whispered words about not giving up on Lance just yet, before he too left for his bed. Allura promises that she’ll help him think of some new idea tomorrow, and Coran simply wishes him a good night with a sympathetic ruffle of his hair. Once they too left for their bedchambers, Keith takes a hold of Shiro’s hand and leads him down to his own room, where he’s already stashed some of Hunk’s alien popcorn and an Altean movie that Pidge had added English subtitles too. It’s going to be a long night, but Keith isn’t going to let his brother wallow for too long. He’ll get Lance soon or later.
Hi, my name's Jason, AKA "Toro Rojo." I was your average high school boy getting into trouble, playing football, and getting into pranks, until one of them went wrong and I crashed into a forgotten Superfund site. Somehow, the toxic waste there didn't outright kill me, and my exposure to a bull earlier that night turned me into a super-strong cow/human hybrid. Now I fight crime for the government in exchange for them trying to turn me back to normal.
Hey, I'm Trini, AKA "Gata Alejandra," and before you ask, no, I am NOT Jason's sidekick, we're partners--besides, I'm the better superhero. Anyway, it turns out I'm descended from a line of Luchadoras--masked wrestlers, except female--and I inherited a wrestling mask that gives me super cool, cat-and-professional-wrestling themed powers. It's pretty lit.
Hi, I'm Kimberly, or just Kim, and I'm the reincarnation of the Hindu Goddess "Kali"--well, a partial one, some Really Bad Dudes interrupted the process, so now there are bits and pieces of me all over the world and I don't have nearly as many awesome, destructive Goddess Powers as I should have. Coincidentally, these pieces tend to be found by supervillains, so I fight them and get what's mine back.
Hey everyone, I'm Billy, AKA "Bright Boy"! I'm actually a highly-complex android modified by my "dad" after the company he worked for tried to replace all their human workers with robots. I was meant for the scrapheap until he saved me, modified me, and turned me into the son he never had, except robotic, with a jetpack, drills, and the ability to handle and create high explosives, plus other forms of technology. He died after the robots in the mine went crazy and we tried to stop them, and his dying wish was for me to improve myself and help save other people, so that's what I'm doing.
Sup, name's Zack, AKA the current "Purifier!" My mom had the job originally, until a bunch of vampire-wannabes tried to kill her and poisoned her blood. Unfortunately, she's pretty much incurable, but fortunately, she passed on her kickass sword-of-pure-light and her powers to me so now I'm slaying demons, criminals, and other villains left and right to make sure that NO ONE ever has to suffer like I did ever again. Also, I get to use and shout the kickass names of all my secret techniques like the "Final Light" slash, and carry an entire armoury's worth of firearms on me at all times, so it's not all bad, I guess.
Name's Tommy. Tommy Oliver. You might also know me as the newest "Justice Rider." Managed to find the last guy's bike in a scrapheap somewhere, put in some long nights fixing it back up from a rust bucket waiting to fall apart to a lean, mean, green machine, and out of gratitude it gave me superpowers, a kickass suit of armour complete with helmet, and lets me ride it even when we're not bringing the hurt to baddies, so now I can ride all around the world in a straight line if I wanted to. It's a PRETTY kickass deal.
Greetings. My name is Zordon, I am an alien sent by an ancient civilization of warriors to protect this world from extraterrestrial threats, and your own people in the mutual interest of the civilized galaxy at large. I was betrayed and killed by my former ally, Rita Repulsa, so now I use my old ship and my vast amounts of alien technology to help monitor and manage this world's various dangers and direct "heroes" to the appropriate ones.
Hi, I'm Alpha 5, I'm Zordon's robot sidekick doing everything he can't do while he's stuck in a wall!
7 Reasons to Choose Community College by abby-learns
I’ve spent a total of 4 years at a community college as a dual-enrolled student and then as a more traditional college student; here are some of the reasons I recommend CC to my friends. Please do note that every CC is different, and some of these may apply to small colleges as well.
So many people overlook community college as an option for higher education. You could complete your higher learning career at a CC by earning a certificate, or you could complete half of a bachelor’s degree and transfer the credits to a 4-year university! Here are some reasons to look into your local community college to see if it’s a good fit for your academic goals:
1) the price tag At my CC, the cost is ~$90 per credit. At the university I will be attending this fall, the cost is ~$470 per credit. Overall, this makes tuition roughly $2,700 for a year at community college and $14,100 at a 4-year university. This means if you attend a community college for your first two years of college, you could save about $22,000 on tuition alone.
2) small class sizes In my 4 years at community college, I was never in a class with more than 30 people. Typically, it was about 25. This meant more 1-1 attention/feedback from my professors and an ability to form a personal connection. I would regularly talk to my professors and ask them for additional feedback or advice when I found something difficult. I’d also share my study methods with them and ask for feedback. I’d ask what previous students have done to be successful. Having your professors know who you are helps with a number of things. It makes class less miserable knowing they’re just a person. It opens up doors; teachers who know you are more likely to recommend you for scholarships, university admissions, internships, etc. It can also sometimes help your grade. When teachers see your hard work and the interest you have in a class, they may give you the benefit of the doubt more often or give you an extra opportunity to fix mistakes. I’ve offered to write a short paper for extra credit before for a class where I was nervous about the final exam, and the professor happily agreed it would be a fine idea, since they knew I was putting my all into the course. The feeling of having your professors as a support system through your college career can make all the difference, and community college made it so simple to form.
3) opportunities to grow Many community colleges offer ample opportunities for personal and academic growth in students. My school has dozens of student-run organizations, and a number of departments that hire students for part-time jobs or work-study. Since I was quite young when I started college, it took me about 2 years to actually get involved on my campus, but I ended up serving as president of two organizations, a student ambassador, and working for the academic support services center. The student body at most community colleges are much smaller than a typical 4-year; they expect students to only be there for a year or two, so the opportunities come more quickly. Leadership opportunities aren’t reserved for juniors and seniors.
4) ability to live at home Although some may see this as a con, living at home for another two years if your parent/guardian allows can save you a ton of money. If you’re someone who’s anxious to move out already, consider getting an apartment with a friend or two. Even if you’re paying for rent, the money you save yearly on tuition has the potential to make up the difference.
5) program flexibility I know so many high school students have trouble deciding what they want to major in. At community college, you have the opportunity to try a multitude of things. Since the first 2 years of school are pretty similar for most majors, you have a lot of flexibility. My school offers about 40 different degree programs and certificates to students. There’s a culinary program, and EMT training program, an ultrasound technician certificate, and more. Because community colleges are significantly cheaper than universities, there’s less of a fear of “wasting” a class as you work to find your passion.
6) be a full-time or part-time student At community college, there is no pressure to take a full 15-credit class load each semester. If you need to continue working full-time to earn money and support yourself, you have the option of living at home and taking a class or two without having to put your life on hold. However, if you want to take 18 credit hours, that freedom is there for you as well. Most CCs also offer online classes! All kinds of people attend CCs: first-time college students, people who dropped out of 4-years and are returning to school, high school drop-outs seeking a fresh start, parents, teachers continuing their own education, community members looking to learn something new. No matter what your situation and commitment to school is, CC will welcome you!
7) summer classes If you have an annoying Math or Philosophy class that you just want to get out of the way, summer is a GREAT time to do so! Many 4-year college students will take summer classes to get a class or two completed while they work over the summer. Summer classes are loads of fun, and are usually done in half the time as a normal course would be in the fall or winter. It’s an excellent way to get an accelerated course or something. Summer semesters were always my favorite, and I’d recommend them to anyone!
That’s it for now! If you find this helpful and would like a part two, a cons list, or if you have any questions, feel free to send them my way! Abby
I really need more teacher!levi and (college)student!eren :o I've been through the tag list but i've read them all
YOU AND ME BOTH ANON YOU AND ME BOTH. I’m a complete hoe for problematic themes & teacher/student is like #1 on my list, but there isn’t enough! There’s one in the queue right now, but I read this like 2 days ago, so hopefully the author is still going to keep writing it:
Step By Step Summary: Eren is a senior in high school who has trouble with his grades and a sister who worries about him too much. Levi is the man who teaches the class that Eren struggles the most with. Naturally, Eren gave up trying to pass his class, settling for failing and not telling his family. At least, that was the plan until Mr. Ackerman tells him that he has to get tutored if he doesn’t want his family to be notified about his terrible grade. What started as an innocent little tutoring session between just the two of them could turn into something more… If Eren gets past the cold exterior and the perpetual scowl. Can Eren break through the barrier Levi has put up between them and still keep their meetings a secret, or will everything fall apart?
Roman Godfrey was no doubt the richest kid in Hemlock Grove,
something that he knew all too well, so when you happened to waltz into his English
class and chose to completely disregard his air of authority he wasn’t
However, he thought you were beautiful, and Roman Godfrey
only collects rare and beautiful things. It didn’t take long for him to eye you
up, ignoring Peter’s amused glances as he chose to focus on only you. He found
it humorous that you dress so conservatively and yet, while you had been so engrossed
in your work, that you’d let the skirt of your blue dress expose enough of your
thigh for Roman to seriously rethink his plan to ignore you.
how do you think the boys would react to meeting their girlfriend's parents and finding out that she was actually the wild child in high school, like getting in trouble for sneaking out, drinking, cutting class and stuff, but judging off of her behavior now nobody would ever guess that was her in high school.
Thanks for requesting honey <3
Seokjin: He’d be surprised - you hadn’t come across as the type to have been like that during the time you’d been together, however he doesn’t judge you for it. What matters to him is who you are now, not who you used to be.
Yoongi: It wouldn’t bother him whatsoever. He’d tell your parents about how proud he is of who you are at the moment, that you’ve turned your life around and that your past doesn’t define you.
Hoseok: He’d be shocked, a little unable to wrap his head around it because you’re his sunshine - he couldn’t imagine you doing anything like that. Even so, he knows not to judge, knows you’re okay now and that’s all that matters to him.
Namjoon: He’d be curious, wanting to show an interest in your past and he’d be quick to reassure you that it doesn’t matter to him, so long as you’re happy right now.
Jimin: He’d get worried. Lots of ‘why didn’t you tell me’, ‘are you okay’, questions like that. You’d assure him that you’re fine, that it’s all behind you now and you’re a better person.
Taehyung: Similarly to Seokjin, he’d be surprised yet not worried. He knows you must not have told him for a reason. He’d never judge you for your past.
Jungkook: It wouldn’t bother him - he knows he has no right to judge you for what you did in your past. He’s always supportive, kind and loving and this situation is no different. So long as you didn’t get yourself in too much trouble.
So my mom just took a job as the head at-risk counselor at the alternative high school with all the troubled bad kids and their mostly black… I wonder why? She was already the head counselor at the regular high school 🤔🤔 what do y'all think??
Summary: You are able to hear the voice of your soulmate in your head. The voice you hear belongs to Frank Castle, the Punisher.

Word Count: 2,381

A/N: This is my first time writing Frank so I’m pretty nervous about this. I hope you like it!
He positioned himself on the roof of a house which was on the direct opposite of his destined goal. He was able to see all of these gang members. Assholes who had killed and raped women and children and who’d done it with joy. Who had treated women and children like garbage. Assholes who dealt with drugs and got some high school kids in trouble while they were still walking around without any cuffs attached to their limbs. Police couldn’t catch them and the guy in red wouldn’t do anything than beating them up and dragging them to the police station. They would be gone for a few years. They would build themself an entire empire in prison. And when they’d be out again, they would do it again. They always did.
Things I REALLY wanted 3 years ago -to be done with high school without being in trouble -to get really kick ass grades and be an honour roll student -to get into my dream college -to have a good group of friends in college
At that point everything but the last one seemed impossible and a dream that would never become my reality.
I worked so hard and so long for everything but not for the friends part. That wasn’t supposed to be work. It was supposed to be a very natural and obvious thing. The only attainable one out of that list too.
Funny thing though, everything but that became my reality.
What? Huh? Did I hear it right? Did we hear it right? You definitely heard that Hanbin said he liked me right? What is even going on?
Here’s the deal. I was about to confess to Jaebum my feelings once and for all, but Hanbin came out of nowhere and grabbed my attention with three simple words. I like you. Now, I’m disorientated. I’m mentally dead now.
“I like you a lot,” he took a breath of air and smiled, “Really.”
The people surrounding us grew into a crowd and I grew confused at the situation before me. I was speechless, and It felt like everything around me was moving slowly. I looked into Hanbin’s eyes who lifted up along with a smirk on his face. What is going on?
Werewolves are considered little better than animals and often treated much worse, forced into slavery from birth. Derek has been owned by enough humans to know their cruelty. When he’s bought by Stiles, he expects more of the same. But Stiles is not like any human he’s dealt with before.
Stiles meanwhile is horrified to learn of the treatment werewolves suffer on a daily basis, and he must deal with the fact that his best friend is out there somewhere, probably going through everything Derek has been through.
“Me and Scott talk about everything, about all my poor decisions.”
“So I’m a poor decision?”
“Probably, yes. Considering how you rudely threw me out of your apartment the other day after convincing me to kiss you and admit that I like you.”
Set post Season 2 finale. Stiles is having a rough time at home and finds himself going to Derek for help in Scott’s absence. He doesn’t expect for Derek to end up turning to him for support, leading to something more than just friendship between them. Slow, slow, fluffy slow build!
*Based on the spoilers that just keep on coming, this is very likely to be canon divergent for s3!*
Oh God, and Scott had just stood by and let him do it. He was the worst best friend ever. Stiles was going to kill him. Except, oh right, the alpha was going to kill him first. Like beyond dead, ripped into tiny little pieces dead. So far dead that his dad would not be able to identify him, dead.
The result of a one night stand is the catalyst that starts the chain reaction of events that will form the rest of his life. Stiles life has now been changed for better or for worse and it is now his decision that will frame it. It’s simply by chance that everything comes together in his life in the form of one little miracle.
Family means everything to a Stilinski man, it’s something they cherish, love, and value more than anything else in the world. However, those feelings can sometimes hurt the people they love as they try and protect them from harm. Magic!Stiles and Sterek.
If anyone had told Stiles this would be his life four years ago he would have laughed. This doesn’t happen, not to him, but yet it has. It’s just another story in his and their life and this one will be the biggest yet. It will be the biggest challenge but the most rewarding at the end of the day and all it takes is a deep breath and a step forward.
Kate Argent had a lot of secrets, some of which she took to the grave. When one of them shows up on Chris Argent’s doorstep in the form of Kate’s five-year-old daughter, it’s not long before more to come to light – namely, that Kate’s crimes against Derek Hale didn’t begin and end with the murder of his family. It’s no surprise that as soon as Derek learns about his daughter’s existence, he decides that nothing will keep him from claiming the only family he still has in the world. Stiles finds himself firmly in the middle of the Hale-Argent family drama, slowly growing more certain of his feelings for Derek and ever more sure of the inevitable heartbreak they’ll bring.
Summers at the cabin were the only part of the year Stiles looked forward to the most. You’d be excited too if you were young, and had a dog waiting to play with you. One summer changed all that when a fire broke out in the cabin, and Stiles never saw Howl again. Now, Stiles is in high school, and having trouble with his anxiety he thought he got a hold of. It doesn’t help that he’s constantly fighting death with werewolves and Derek Hale, but there’s something familiar about Derek. Stiles can’t put his finger on it, and doesn’t try too hard, but as they grow closer he’ll soon realize who Derek really is.
