am so tired of Louis never being given credit for the wonderful things
he does. These days, literally every single good thing he does, every
gesture, every word; is discredited; brushed off as something he had to
do, a stunt, ‘his team’ doing it, twisted to fit one conspiracy or
other. Can’t we just accept things at face value once in a while, and
acknowledge that maybe Louis just wanted to do something nice, because
he is a good person and he wants to make other people happy?
night was a perfect example of that. I was disappointed not to see him
at the Brits. I had assumed because he was there last year when he had
nothing to promote that this year, he’d go, especially when he had
music to promote, an award to possibly win, and when he did the promo
for the nominees show and said how important they in particular were to him. When he flew in 3 days before, it seemed pretty
much a given that he’d attend. And it was strange to not have him there
and not know why; especially as he was on social media and didn’t appear
at the time to have other things going on. And when he posted the video
it was such a sweet gesture, to show that it was still important to him
that we voted, that he still appreciated the award, that he wasn’t
taking it for granted. And it was great that he was getting to spend
time with his family. Yet I still wasn’t sure why he chose to go back home at
that specific time, why he chose then of the several nights he had
been home to do something with them, especially because it really would
benefit his solo career to be with the music industry people.
I realized that there was a reason for it. Louis specifically chose
that time and that night *because* it was the night of the Brits. His mum went to the Brits with him last year, and I believe she did in
prior years. He spoke very fondly of sharing his first Brit win with
her, and always said how special they were to him. And, his family
probably always watched the Brits together, or, once he was there
himself, attended it. Louis PURPOSELY stayed home to do something with
them, because it was more important to be there for and with them for
support because the Brits was a big thing to his family. Watching it with them
and maybe having dinner or something was his top priority and
he wanted to show that, instead of being about himself and going to
promote himself. Then, to add to that, he then made us a really sweet
video, which was posted only 12 minutes after the award was announced,
proving that while his family means everything to him, he really does
care about us and is grateful for the things he wins too. And not only
did I totally understand it then, but I was so proud of him for it.
seeing people dismiss it and brush it aside and say ‘he could have
tweeted that’ or making it about him refusing to attend the awards show
for some sort of rebellion or to fit some theory, I just felt like I
needed to say something, this time. He went out of his way to make
everyone happy, and why is it never good enough for people? He really
does do special things to show how much he cares whenever he can, and,
too many people dismiss them and turn them into something they’re not.
He deserves more credit in all areas than this fandom ever gives him.
Next to her, Killian mumbles incoherently, shifting his arm to rest more comfortably. He’s barely awake, his face still in his pillow, but Emma has been up for nearly an hour, and this freaking dinner party is going to drive her insane.
“Did you pick up that bottle of scotch for my dad? I finished the one we had last night, and–”
Killian is apparently awake enough to kiss her, his lips firm against hers as he slides across the mattress to settle between her thighs. He’s warm, his skin radiating heat from sleep, and when he pulls back enough to blink blearily at her, it’s with a soft smile. “Relax, darling. I’ve got it all sorted as you asked.”
“But everyone is coming over tonight, and–”
“And if we served them moldy bread and rotten fish, they wouldn’t even notice.”
His accent is thicker when he’s still half-asleep, or maybe it’s the underlying emotion as he reaches for her hand, the newly-placed ring shining in the early morning light. He rubs his thumb against the metal, and their eyes catch, and it hits her all over again.
They’re engaged. Emma Swan, the sad little lost girl with no home is going to marry the love of her life – the true love of her life.
But first they have to tell everyone, and she doesn’t know why she’s so nervous. Her father likes Killian. Her mother will be thrilled. Regina will say something snarky, and then probably get her some extravagant gift she doesn’t need. And Henry…well, Henry probably had something to do with the proposal in the first place since he rather conveniently stayed at a friend’s house last night.
“We’re not serving moldy anything, love.” Killian is looking at her with a faint amount of concern when she glances up, his voice pulling her from her thoughts. “Roast chicken, with–”
It’s Emma’s turn to shut him up with a kiss, a needy thing that has her gripping his shoulders to pull him closer. Who is she kidding? Killian has had this all planned. The dinner party was arranged a week ago – wouldn’t it be nice to have everyone over for Sunday dinner now that I’ve properly moved in and we’ve a moment’s peace? – and there he was last night, asking her to marry him.
He probably knew she’d never be able to keep it a secret, and if she’s honest, Emma likes that he was so sure of her answer that he already made a plan to tell everyone before he’d even asked the question.
Which is why she decides that worrying about the menu is probably not the best use of her time when they’ve got the house to themselves, and Killian’s bare skin is on hers. He must be of a similar mind, his hips grinding against hers as the kiss deepens as his fingers dance along her waist and up over her ribs.
It’s a pleasant way to pass the morning, and in the end, it turns out the Emma really shouldn’t have worried about anything. The moment her parents walk through the door, Mary Margaret zeros in on her left hand, nudging David before he’s even started to take off his coat.
Chapter Summary:It’s a new day! Time to face the music.
Chapter Preview: …
“Kylo?” she croaks out, her throat parched and gritty. “Hey.”
Kylo grumbles, mumbling incoherencies into her hair. If anything, he shifts closer.
“Hey,” she says again, rasping out his name a second time. “You’re warm and I don’t feel good.”
That makes him open his eyes. A dragon. He reminds her of a dragon, at least the ones she’d seen in movies. His eyes blink open slowly, taking all the time in the world to focus, and the next huff of air to hit her face when he looks down could just as easily be fire.
“You’re too warm,” she says once more, trying to keep the queasiness in her gut from escalating. The last thing she needs is to throw up on this guy because god would that be both gross and utterly embarrassing. “Can you, uh… let me go now?”
Author’s note: The skies parted and out came a chapter a week earlier than usual. Enjoy!
ADOT readers! I’m working on ch. 37 now <3 ty for the wait. Hang in there a little longer. *retreats back into her scheduled break*
Okay, so I got this fic idea that I know I’m not able to write, so I’m going to throw it out for anyone who wants to use the idea.
So basically, a lot of times, with Nursey and Dex, when we imagine one of them visiting the other over the summer, it’s usually Nursey going to Dex, right? It’s tough for Dex to go to NYC because of his job and family and yes, finances. But I’m thinking, what if, after they start dating, Dex gets the idea that it might be nice to surprise Nursey in NYC, so he starts saving with the intention being that if their relationship lasts until summer, he’s going to take some time and do it (he’s pretty sure the look on Nursey’s dumb face when he shows up unannounced alone will make the trip worthwhile). And he has some ideas about what they might do, except that when he gets there, Nursey just excitedly starts rattling off the kinds of things and places that only New Yorkers would know about that he wants to take Dex to. And who is Dex to say no to excited Nursey? And they have all sorts of cute moments around the city.
So, can y’all see my problem? I’m just a Michigan boy who’s never set foot in NYC, so I can’t possibly write this. But I really want a fic of it! Can I interest any NYC-area fic writers to do it for me? Please???
Namjoon: “I know I did wrong. I don’t know what I was thinking. (Y/N) please listen to me,”he begged you as he cried watching you pack up your things. “You cheated on me and then come back home telling me you love me? No Namjoon I don’t need to hear anymore of your lies. It’s over,”you said as you zipped up your suitcase. As you tried walking the door he would pull you back holding on to you as he begged you one last time to not leave.
Taehyung: “I never thought you would have cheated on me. All the ‘I love you’s’ were just a l-,”you said as you started to tear up. “(Y/N) I was drunk I didn’t. I couldn’t think straight. I knew I shouldn’t have been drinking that night,”he said hiding his face with his hands. “I don’t want to be the dumb girl taking back their cheating boyfriend. I’m done,”you said as you walked towards the door. He called and texted you how much he regrets cheating on you and begged you to talk to him.
Hoseok: “Just don’t try to make everything seem better. You cheated on me Hoseok and you expect me to hear all the lies you have to say? I saw you flirting with her and then start kissing her,”you said getting angry,”I’m not stupid I saw everything.” “Yes I was flirting with her but she was the one kissing me. I was taken a back and couldn’t pull away,”he said defending himself. “But if the roles were reversed you would have told me much horrible things. Hoseok this relationship isn’t working out. It’s best if we go our separate ways,”you said grabbing your car keys,”I’m picking up my stuff tomorrow morning.” Hoseok would tell you that he wouldn’t do it ever again because he loves you way to much and also appear at your apartment with many gifts to try and win you back.
Jin: “I never thought I would have to deal with this with you. You always showed me respect and it has never crossed my mind that you would cheat on me Seokjin,”you said as you cried,”I’m trying so hard to find a way to still stay with you but if it happened once it can happen again.” “(Y/N)-ah I won’t do it again,”he said as he reached for your hand but you pulled away shaking your head. “No. Jin it’s over,”as soon as those words came out of your mouth you started to full on cry as Jin stared at you with a miserable look on his face. “I should be the one leaving this home. I’ll go pack my things,”he said as he walked upstairs. He didn’t bother you knowing that what he did was unforgettable and he cursed himself every day for being foolish enough to cheat on you.
Jungkook: “So do feel better now that you have two girls to play with? Is she younger wait let me guess she’s older isn’t she?”you said shaking your head as you dropped the shirt with the red lipstick stain. “You overreact over a little lipstick stain if anyone should be mad it should be me because your accusing me of something that I didn’t do,”he said as he raised his voice. As you both argued the phone rang and you quickly answered it and before you could say hello a female voice answered in a seductive tone,”Jungkook I can’t stop thinking about what happened last night.” “Who is this?”you asked as you gripped on the phone. “Why do you have Jungkook’s phone?”the female asked. “I don’t know ask him yourself,”you said as you threw his phone at him. You ran upstairs as you quickly packed your stuff. You were about to head out when Jungkook blocked the exit. “Get out,”you said not staring at him. “Babe listen-,”he started but you slapped him. “I don’t want to listen to your bullshit,”you yelled as you pushed him out the way. After that he tried calling you and texting you leaving a lot of voicemails begging you to take him back again telling you that his life has been hell without you.
Yoongi: “This is the fifth time you come late and you still smell like that same women perfume. Yoongi are you cheating on me?”you asked as you stared at your hands hoping you were just delusional. “I am,”he said as he stared at your with a blank expression on his face. You nodded as you tried to hold back the tears,”Ok. I’m leaving for California soon. It’s better to end this now,”you said as you took a deep breath,”I never loved you anyways so it doesn’t matter to me.” He looked up at you with pain in his eyes,”I know that your lying.” “I don’t love you,”you lied as you stared him in the eyes hoping you wouldn’t break down,”It seems like you don’t love me either. No hard feelings.” “I cheated on you today not the other four days that I’ve been coming home late.We only kissed but it felt wrong. It didn’t go any further than that. I’m disgusted in myself and it’s,”he started but then he started to tear up taking you by surprise,”it’s so out of character of me to do things like this. And now you’re telling me that everything we’ve been through means nothing to you?” You nodded as you got up from your chair,”I’m heading home. I have a flight to catch on Monday.” He tried calling you and even went to the airport to stop you from boarding the plane. As much as you wanted to run back to him but you knew the relationship wouldn’t be the same anymore.
Jimin: “Was she good in bed?”you asked him as you gave him a cold stare. “What are you-,”he started but noticed that you had his phone. “Answer me Jimin. These texts are pretty erotic I wouldn’t be surprised if you fucked her more than once,”you said as you throw the phone across the living room. He stared at you in silence not even saying a word as you went up to him and slapped him,”I’m not a stupid fucking toy but you can play around with the rest of your bitches.” He grabbed his face as tears started to form in his eyes,”(Y/N).” But you didn’t turn back as you walked out of his apartment. He went over to your apartment multiple times but you ignored him as you cursed at yourself for loving him still even after finding out he cheated on you.
Hey Jab, what do you think of the drama going on in the Let's Play YouTuber fandom?
i’ve never been a follower of any of those people, mostly because i don’t really “get” youtube culture. like i can see the appeal of doing a Let’s Play and stuff, but the rest of it honestly sorta confuses me, i guess it’s a bit after my time
i will say that i’m pretty disappointed in their reactions from a general standpoint, especially in the face of how the fandom seemed to handle it. the gaming community at large (if it could be said to have one) has been gradually infected by this really nasty undercurrent of white nationalism over the past decade or so, and it’s really ramped up in the face of the last election. when a prominent youtube personality lost several lucrative endorsement deals because of his antisemitic content, i was not at all surprised to see the gaming community rally around him, crying “censorship”, “SJW” and “special snowflake” like they always do- regrettably, this has become the new normal, i no longer expect anything else from people that self-identify as gamers
if other prominent personalities in the youtube circle had been more willing to openly condemn their disgraced peer, specifically doing so WITHOUT attempting to justify or defend him, it might have been shifted the tide somewhat. instead, they largely pulled their punches, trotting out the old feeble “oh he isn’t a bad person, i know him personally and he isn’t like that, this was just a joke that got out of hand/was taken out of context, he made a mistake but you all should take it easy on him” song and dance. whether this happened because it was genuinely how they felt, or because they wished to address an unavoidable issue without risking the loss of income that would come with an exodus of subscribers, is really a non-issue, because in so doing, they sent a very clear message: propagating hatred is both acceptable and defensible, as long as there’s profit to be had
extremely disappointing, especially considering how young some of these guys’ fans are. you’d think they’d want to set a better example by showing a little backbone. but then again, like i said, the hateful element has been building in the gaming community for years, the pressure to pick the “correct” side must be enormous for these gaming celebrity types. it happened to that GameGrumps guy, after all, i guess no public figure is immune anymore
lock screen, wallpaper, last song, and last selfie
Thanks to the lovely @fanvillage for the tag! If I don’t live past 7x12, just know I’ve had so much fun fangirling with you😊
My lock screen is just an artsy filter of me. The wallpaper is my fave pic of those two dorks because he’s leanin in for another kiss and she’s got her hands on his chest and they’re both smilin and I die everytime😭New Edition because I was in my feelings and it’s been stuck in my head ever since I saw the movie. And that’s definitely not my last selfie, it’s just one of the few I’m willing to put up here lol. Tagging @deputyrick, @richonne, and @unicornglitter05
I was used to waking up in strange beds. What I wasn’t used to was that bed moving. My eyes flew open as I felt tiny open-mouthed kisses on my neck. The memory of what happened last night flooded my mind and I sprang up, looking at Shannon.
“Hey, what’s wrong?” Shannon asked, sitting up and taking my head in his hands.
Just curious, are there any other human Tamatoa's that you like out there? :)
Oh heck yeah! Obviously my favorite is @thismightyneed ‘s Tama. They have such a nice and unique design I love the idea of him using a corset and the little extra bits of detail are such a great touch. Another person’s design I really like is @spiritbrosonthispartytrain I think the way they draw his face is so funny and I feel that it really hits the nail on the head when it comes to his expressions. @mauatoa also has a really nice design. I think my favorite part about theirs was how they made his crown. It looks like it could be a Polynesian headpiece and I’m all for fan characters that look like they match the design of their content. The last one I really like is tunabelly the design is incredibly simple but it really works and I feel like they really got the feeling of Tamatoa with their Shiny animatic.
I really need some like, otayuri fluff in my life rn?? Like pls
•At the beach and Otabek cant swim so Yuri tries to teach him how to swim
