I’m someone who has suffered dry lips for as long as I can remember and boy have they gotten bad.

The Love That Evades Is the Most Satisfying to Ensnare
Request: “Hey there!~ i was
curious if I could request a Newt x Reader fic based off the song ‘Give Me
Love’ by Ed Sheeran?? Maybe it’s like a one sided relationship, he fancies Leta
(I know you just did a fic that includes Leta Dx) or Tina, and there’s Angst
but fluff? Maybe it can end on a comforting note?~ (I love ur writing so much
Pairing: Newt Scamander x Reader
Word Count: 4130
Warnings: ANGST FUCKING HELL I LOVE ANGST but also a lot of fluff
at the end don’t worry
A/n: wow this is longest fic I’ve ever written lmao pls give it
some love if u end up liking it :^)
me love like her,
'Cause lately I’ve been waking up alone
Looking at him hurt. It hurt to see him smiling, laughing at a
joke she had told. He was happy, but it wasn’t with you. It could have been
you, maybe in another universe it could’ve been. You would’ve spoken up about
your feelings for your freckled friend, and he would’ve blushed and kissed you,
then you would have become the most perfect couple, complementing each other in
every tangible aspect, bettering each other while sharing a love that couldn’t
be broken by the sharpest sword. And yet, here she had come. The edge of a
blade, stabbed between your 3rd and 4th ribs, penetrating
all the hope you had left.
The worst part about the pain was that it felt like a betrayal. Of
course, Newt had never known about your undying love for him, and he probably
would never know now. But somehow, every time you looked at them touching,
kissing… you couldn’t get the image of the double-edged sword out of your mind.
Two hands at the base, one belonging to each of them, pressing it into your
heart until the hilt reached your chest. A blind boy, matched with a girl who always
had a bird’s eye view on the situation. She knew you loved him.
What made it worse is that she was never harsh about it either.
She knew how much you must’ve been hurting, even sending you sorry glances when
she realized you were watching the two coddle. The final striking blow being
that she was perfect for Newt, so much more than you could’ve ever been. Oh,
how you wished so badly to be Leta. The smart, beautiful Leta, who had everyone
wrapped around her little finger, whether she knew it or not. Many had painted
her to be cruel, or even evil, but those were just rumours spread behind her
back due to her reputation being quashed when she started her relationship with
the “weird Hufflepuff boy”. Maybe she did have flaws, maybe. It was a maybe that you clung to, guiltily wishing that one
day her flaws would overwhelm her many talents and gorgeous features, and Newt
would come back to you.

“I’m not fancy with my bags,” says Candice Patton. “I like a practical, putting-all-my-stuff-in-there kind of bag.” Currently, the 28-year-old star of CW’s The Flash (Tuesdays, 8 p.m.) favors a simple canvas backpack: “I like muted colors, brown or black.” She unzips for Us.
“I don’t carry a lot of makeup day-to-day, but I have to have my Clé de Peau Beauté concealer in Honey. I like a stick foundation because you can just smear them on your face and rub it in.”
WHAT A THRILL
“I’m reading In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware. It’s about these British girls who go into the woods for a party. I’m only halfway through, but I think someone’s going to die. It’s being made into a movie by Reese Witherspoon.”
“I keep MAC blotting sheets. If I’m in L.A., the sun can start to melt your makeup, and I naturally get a little oily, so blotting sheets are perfect for that.”
IT’S A WRAP
“Jesse L. Martin, one of my costars on the show, gave me a cashmere shawl by Kit and Ace. It’s really beautiful. I stick it in my bag — if I’m on a plane, usually I’m freezing.”
“I always have a hat. Right now, I’m wearing a NASA baseball cap, which is my favorite.”
Patton also carries Bobbi Brown stick foundation in Golden Honey, Dr. Hauschka lip balm, NARS lip color in Bahama, Gold perfume by Commodity, Peter Thomas Roth Instant Mineral SPF, a Moleskine pocket calendar, a S'well water bottle, a Cool Enough Studio lip mirror, a banana clip, keys on a carabiner and her passport.

SuperVasquez 16 Accidentally falling asleep on the couch together.
“Alex,” Kara leaned over the back of the couch she’d just deposited on the hardwood floor of her sister’s new living room as Susan Vasquez flopped onto the sofa in front of her. “Supergirl could have done the entire move in an hour. You seriously couldn’t have waited a couple days for my powers to come back?”
“Sorry, sis. Timing is everything. We had to be out of the old place today.” Alex dropped a box on the floor and winced at the disturbing rattle it made as it hit the ground. “Oops.”
“Watch it, Danvers. You break it, you bought it.” Maggie followed Alex through the apartment door and placed her own box carefully on top of Alex’s before snaking her arms around Alex’s waist. The two began canoodling with no regard for the other two women in the room. Kara rolled her eyes.
“There’s a special place in hell for people who schedule city moves in the hottest month of the year. There better be so much pizza and beer at the end of this.” Vasquez punctuated her statement by wiping sweat from her forehead with the hem of her t-shirt, exposing her impressive abs. Kara tried not to stare. She really did try, but Susan was right there, trying to catch her breath and leaning her head against the back of the couch. Her face was so close, eyes closed, neck exposed.
*Requests are Open* Spencer Reid Imagine: I’m so stupid to make mistake of falling in love with my best friend. Warnings: None Masterlist: x Prompts: x
‘You busy? - Spence x’ 'Spence, it’s One in the morning’ 'Are you busy?’ 'I guess not x’ 'Great xx’
Twenty minutes ago, It took twenty two minutes for Spencer to reach your apartment from his, you knew that, he had been the one to tell you that, your best friend, the genius, he knew every little thing like that. At first you thought it was a little weird, however, you had grown to realise how useful this trait could be, you knew from the final text message that you had exactly twenty two minutes to get ready. A large mustard tinted sweater and some dark blue jeans, holes over the knees, something Spencer always questioned. He never understood the 'trend’ as it were. None-the-less, you slipped a brush through your hair, and your feet into some black 'Chelsea-type’ boots, no makeup was the obvious option however honey lip-balm could never go a miss, especially this time of year, winter always chapped your lips. One, two three, four-five, his signature knock, every single time you heard that knock you could always be certain of the messy haired genius behind the door.
“Morning” he giggled, as he looked at you, fully dressed yet half awake, “You look tired” he noted as you rolled your eyes, walking out of your apartment, triple checking the handle after clicking the key, you could never be too careful.
“I’m glad you’re so nice about me Spence,” slipping into the elevator, as the keypad lit up, Spencer’s hand beating yours and clicking the lobby button first.
“No, I didn’t mean it like that, I mean sure you look tired, but you also look beautiful, you always do” His smile was soft and humble, incredibly shy too. You had been friends for so long however, he still felt as if it was line crossing to compliment you. You could compliment you however, I mean you would a little, but you could continuously, non-stop, repeatedly for days on end, you thought so highly of him. That wasn’t surprising considering you were madly infatuated with him. Sometimes you had to stop yourself from blurting out 'I love you’ when he did something extraordinarily cute.
“Anyway” he spoke, pulling you from your thoughts, I have a surprise for you, I don’t know if you are aware of today’s date, or the meaning that it holds,“ he took your silence and slightly confused face as a definite 'no’ and continued, "Today, two years ago, a very shy, very pretty girl walked into the bullpen” he paused, as the lift doors opened slowly, you both sliding out, him guiding you to his car, opening the door for you, like the true gentleman he was.
“This girl walked in, and the office stopped, we all stopped” he flicked the engine alive with a twist of the key. “Two years ago today, I met you, I mean I could never forget that day y/n” your mind was immersed in memories of that day, god you had been so nervous and shy.
“I knew this from the first day I met you y/n, it just took me two years to tell you, well 1 year,364 and 19 hours. And well y/n, I don’t want let it get to exactly two years without me doing something, I can’t have let two years go by without telling you”. You didn’t quite understand him but understood by his words that he was going to tell you, so decided to stay quiet.
The wheels stopped slowly, the car sliding into a parking spot, the light’s flashing off quickly, your eyes were caught by the dim lit area in front. He had brought you back to his apartment. Surely you could have just drove here yourself, you couldn’t understand his plan, not that it had made much sense before.
“Y/n, come with me okay? And if this goes wrong, or it messes up, or if this backfires then I’ll take you home, but god dammit I have to try” he fell silent after this grabbing your wrist with his soft hand, pulling you into the elevator, him becoming increasingly nervous as the floor number increased, his breath hitching when the doors opened, him almost being unable to move, his hands sliding down to intertwine with yours.
“Now or never” he whispered to himself, strolling hesitantly with you towards his door. The key slid in and clicked, Reid pushed the door open and stepped aside, letting you walk in first.
The apartment was lit by multiple strings of fairy lights, soft music played in the background as your eyes fell to a trail of red rose petals, a pathway you started to walk, following it throughout the living room, all the way to his bedroom, a bouquet of roses placed delicately on top of his sheets, candles lit all throughout the room, the source of the music, a small speaker positioned to the side of the bed.
“I know this is out of the blue, but I met you 2 years ago exactly in 5 hours, now I wasted those two years, I should have took you resteraunts, took you to the cinema, took you on every date possible, I should have told you my love for you and hopefully heard you say it too. But I didn’t, and I can’t let these two years go to waste, so I figured a way to catch that time up. And trust me y/n, it’s crazy as hell, but fuck it, I know you probably have a million questions but I have one for you, would you keep your last name or take mine?” he paused, reaching into his jacket pocket before dropping onto one knee in front of you.
You felt your heart give way and you couldn’t fathom words, this couldn’t be happening.
“Y/n, will you marry me?” he looked unbelievably nervous, with good reason to, he just proposed to his best friend. You pause wasn’t helping the situation either.
“Yes” the small word slipped from your lips as a smile spread across his face, clambering back up to polish the ring onto your finger, grabbing your hand as your eyes began to swell with tears. His lips met yours gently, pausing for a moment, before moving, the way your lips fit together confirmed the fact, this was right, this was how it should have been.
“I love you, from the day you walked in, the day I saw you first, I knew it” he beamed forehead pressed to yours, his hand consuming one side of your face, as he kissed you once again.
A few looks in one…Baekhyuns red brows, Sehun’s freckled cheeks and both Chen’s red and orange eye makeup + lips + outfit inspiration.
Unfortunately, I didn’t think to use my flash to mimic the promo photos - I had left most of my skin unpowdered, using tamanu oil to bring gloss to the skin and it also meant the BG would have naturally of been dark. Tut.
