i am currently sick

2

Hey, blossoms! There are times when we get ill, which is perfectly natural. To be honest, I am currently sick, so this is kind of a refined version of my thoughts from a few days ago. I was worried about missing school, and I thought that some ideas I have could help you!

self-care 

 The most important thing to do when you’re sick is to take care of yourself and get better. This may mean putting your studies aside, but health always comes first. Here’s some tips:

- Certain types of tea, like chamomile and ones with lemon, can soothe sore throats.

- (Side note: I’ve heard that marshmallows are also able to help sore throats because of the gelatin they contain, but that may not be true and I don’t have a credible source for it.) 

- Make sure you drink lots of fluids, like juice, milk, and most importantly, water! One of my personal faves is Tang, which is this orange powder that you dissolve in water. It used to be really big in America a while ago but I don’t know widespread it is elsewhere. 

- Try to shower regularly if you’re congested because the steam will clear out your sinuses. 

 - If you can’t shower regularly, nasal rinses will work just fine too! You can get a  system for that at your local pharmacy. (There’s also this thing you can do where you fill a sink with hot water, put a towel over it, and stick your head underneath the towel. This allows the steam to build up, which means you can decongest a little.)

- Medicate regularly!! Check the directions on whatever type of medication you’re taking to see when it wears off and set a timer so you can stay on top of it. This will help your recovery process along a bit faster. However, DO NOT ABUSE MEDICATION. Take only as much as is prescribed because taking too much can actually be worse for your health. 

- If you’re on antibiotics, make sure to eat well because antibiotics are designed to take out all types of bacteria within the body, even the good ones in your digestive system. (I’d personally recommend eating foods with fiber and protein and staying away from dairy if you can. That’s just my personal experience! It may be different for other people.)

- Get some rest!! You may want to catch up on your studies but you’ll be able to catch up quicker and understand material better if you’re well rested. 

catching up 

So, you’re feeling alright and ready to begin making up work. Where do you begin? 

- Here’s some posts on catching up after being away for a while (note some of these are travel based, but there’s still some good information in there) 

- Email your teachers! Text your classmates! Ask for notes, for homework, and for additional help if you’re unclear about what’s going on. 

- If you’re feeling well enough, you could run in to your classes in order to get the homework and briefly conference with your teachers, but it’s always best to make sure you’re not contagious or feeling poorly before doing so. Email is pretty much just as effective. 

- Start small. Trying to catch up on all your work in one day is never good. Try to do the work for maybe one class, and if you’re feeling well enough, do another.

- Do what’s most important first. If you’re in a group project and they’re waiting for your input on a presentation or something else, get that in ASAP. Don’t affect the grades of others with your illness.

returning to class 

As you return to your usual schedule, here are some things to note:

 - Before going back to class, ensure you’re in a good place mentally and physically. For example, if you’re still running a fever or you still feel very ill, take some more time and wait. 

- Make sure your study space is functional so that you can begin to return back to your normal schedule. The desk reflects the mind. 

- Keep up on your fluids! If you’re still a little under the weather or you haven’t finished that course of antibiotics, keep taking those meds! 

- Don’t be hard on yourself if you don’t understand something. Being gone is hard. Ask for help and self-advocate.

- If you’re on a sports team or doing some other strenuous activity, it’s okay to take a couple more days away from that to let your body recover completely. 

- The most important thing is to take it easy, even after you’re well enough to come back to class. If you overwork yourself while still recovering, that can lead to backslide, so please be careful!!

I hope this will be useful, darlings!! Take care of yourselves and remember that so many people are rooting for you to do well, including me :]

All the love,

Cold remedies and tips

I am currently sick af and thought I’d use this time to give some great remedies for colds.

Aromatherapy: I actually got an aromatherapy diffuser for Christmas, and I have been using peppermint oil to help clear my sinuses. There are all sorts of oils that you can use that help when your sick, just look on Pinterest!

Use shower melts too, you can pick up a shower vapor tablet at CVS and take a warm shower to open up your sinuses. Plus, you always feel better when you’re clean and fresh, especially after laying in bed all day.

I like using my mint face scrub, which does the same thing as the peppermint oil in my diffuser. It makes me feel like I can breathe better.

Take Emergen-C if you think you’re likely to get sick. Tho these are for more preventative measures, it has something crazy like over 1000% of your daily vitamin C, and other vitamins to help prevent a cold.

DRINK WATER. DRINK WATER. DRINK WATER. And drink orange juice!

Try to stay away from dairy if your throat is sore. I like to eat a lot of soup, fruit, and rice when I’m sick.

Sleep!!! I know you want to go out, or have to go to work, but call out and get your rest, because your body needs it. Lay in bed and watch tv or read and sleeeeep all day. And if someone covers your shift, don’t be stingy and cover theirs in the future. Help each other out.

Keep lights dim to avoid headaches and migraines

Tan alka-seltzer plus cold formula!!! I know it tastes like shit, but it helps with symptoms. Zicam also helps with cold symptoms and doesn’t taste as bad.

Another thing, DON’T PANIC about stuff you need to get done or should be doing. You need to REST. I was so busy during Christmas, but as soon as the day after Christmas hit I woke up sick, and had no energy to do anything on my massive to do list. I got a little anxious about it, but I realized I needed to let my body rest!

Basic Summary: Death (Min Yoongi) meets you and instantly falls in love with you, his job is to take you to the other side but instead asks you to become his wife. While thinking of your answer, a miracle happens. You come back to life.

Genre: Pure fluff, Humour, bit of Angst.

A/N: I am currently sick while I wrote this so I apologise for any mistakes and that it is extremely short. (Also if you’re going to listen music while reading this I suggest you listen to Goblin soundtrack)


You stood there, not able to breathe. His smirk grew and he stepped back, “You’re like putty in my hands” he laughed.

You gave him a sarcastic smile, “I have to get back to my dorm.” You spun around on your feet strutting away from him. “I’ll see you later beautiful!” he shouted. 

“In your dreams Yoongs!”


“I’m glad I see some new faces this semester, hands up if you were in my class last year” your professor said. The majority of the classes hands went up, “right, well lets not make this a recurring event” she smiled and continued on with the class.

You were deep into the lesson writing down notes until you felt a cold presence next to you. “How’s class going?” he asked “Could be a lot better” you retorted back to him, still writing furiously.

“How so?” he turned his head sideways looking confused. “If you weren’t here” you smiled looking at him. Yoongi put his hand over his non beating heart and acted hurt.

You were about to give him a smug comment until the classes door opened revealing somebody you knew.

“Ahh Kim Seok-jin, I see nothings changed. Please take a seat” the professor ordered, “What is he doing here?” Yoongi snickered. 

Jin’s eyes wandered across the class room till he found yours, he smiled wide and walked up the steps to where you were sitting. “Is this seat taken?” he asked, you shook your head and removed your bag to plop it on the floor.

“Everywhere you go he follows you…stalker alert” Yoongi laughed, stood up and walked around the class room occasionally mocking the teacher, causing you to let out a few chuckles here and there. “You’re taking Mrs Kang’s class to?” Jin asked, opening his text books.

“Yeah” you replied scribbling down the last piece of information from the board, “I didn’t see you last year” Jin added, copying everything in one swift motion.

“I got to skip a few classes to be in the more advance classes” you smiled at him. “Ooo, the girl I like is advanced…interesting” you laughed at Jin’s remark and  looked up expecting to find Yoongi staring at you and Jin but you don’t. In fact he’s no where to be seen.


“THAT GOD DAMN BOY IS IN HER CLASS!” Yoongi shouts slamming some paper work onto Jungkook’s desk causing a sigh to escape his lips. 

“What do I do Kookie? Help me out!” Yoongi proclaimed, sitting down burying his head into his hands tugging at his hair. “I don’t know Suga, I mean it’s not like you could transfer to the university and pretend to be a student” Jungkook laughed at his own remark.

“Well…” Yoongi sighed “Yoongi, don’t tell me you were considering that” 

Jungkook’s expression changes in a second.

“Looks like I’m a college student now” Yoongi smiled brightly while Jungkook groaned walking back and fourth.


The next morning Yoongi walked out with two outfits to show Jungkook.

“Which one?” Yoongi asked shoving the outfits into Jungkooks face, “Uhhhhhh” Jungkook lost for words, until he finally realised what Yoongi was trying to do. “Are you trying to impress someone?” Jungkook  smirked grabbing the out fit which included a pink sweater and blue jeans.

“Pffftt, God no. I wanna blend in. You’ve seen my outfits, all of them scream grim reaper. You’re young, what do you wear?” Yoongi asked.

After the heart to heart conversation about the latest trends of 2016 shared between Jungkook and Yoongi, Yoongi went his separate way to your Philosophy class.


“Ahhh, I see we have a new comer. Please take a seat” Your professor said. 

Jin and you were talking about the latest coffee trends about how you could make a 3D cat shaped foam into the coffee until both of your eyes looked up and saw the new student.

“He looks pretty cool” Jin grinned 

“Oh dear God no” you groaned banging your head onto your desk.

“Is this seat taken?”

“Uh no, no ones sitting there” Jin replied smiling, nudging your arm to get you to remove your bag from the desk.

“My name’s Yoongi” he bowed to you and Jin, he gave you a small wink and started to look at the board, trying to wrap his brain around what the teacher was talking about.

Ten minutes later You were forced to look at him.

“Hey, do you know what the hell she’s saying?” Yoongi asked the both of you, you lifted your head up and gave him a sheepish smile.

“Yeah I do. Instead of waltzing on in here, what three, four classes into the term? I got here on time and listened. ALSO I don’t interrupt in class” You snapped.

Both Jin and Yoongi made a baffled face and decided to stay quiet for the rest of the humdrum lesson.

Through out the lesson Yoongi couldn’t keep his eyes off of you, the way your attention was fixated onto the white screen and every time you put your hand up to answer a question your hair fell right into place.

You truly were the most beautiful thing he has ever laid eyes on and secretly he was the most beautiful thing you have ever seen. Your feelings for him were flourishing every day, and you knew it.


“Where are you going now? I was thinking we could go grab something to eat?” Yoongi spoke throwing is bag over his shoulder.

“I think I’m just gonna go to back to my dorm and sleep for a bit. I don’t feel well” you whispered.

“Whats wrong?” Yoongi asked, grabbing your arm and making you turn around to face him.

“I’m getting a headache…from you.”

You walked down the corridors swaying your butt side to side lightly to grab Yoongi’s attention, and boy did it work.

“I know you have a thing for her” Jin laughed, glancing at Yoongi as they both walked outside into the cold midday air.

“Oh yeah? How do you know?” Yoongi inquired stopping in his tracks, waiting for Jin’s marvellous answer. 

“How about you and I go grab coffee right now? Let the princess sleep before you go back to her?” Jin asked, and Yoongi happily obliged. Never in his life has he turned down coffee.

The two of them a grab a table at the back, they found out that they both prefer the back so you can easily see people, a habit Yoongi has always done.

“Now. How do you know I have a “thing” for Y/n?” Yoongi put down the navy blue mug and crossed his legs, giving full attention to the tall boy.

“It’s simple” Jin began leaning back.

“The way you look at her. I can tell you’re in love, its clear that you guys have seen each other before, I can’t tell you how I know that but you’ll probably find out soon. Of course I think she’s beautiful, she’s everything I want in a girl…Lets just say I know what you offered her and I know what she was going to say” Jin winked leaving Yoongi breathless.

The two of them talked more until night fall. They bid their good byes and went their separate ways. Before he went home Yoongi decided to surprise you.


In bed that is where you laid, where Mi Na was working away like a maid, you see what I did there? Mi Na threw your boots under your bed before anybody tripped over them.

“Jesus! we’ve only been in this dorm for what 2 weeks? And you’ve already managed to make it looks like a bombs hit it. Next time, you do your own cleaning up” Mi Na rambled on passing you a blue tablet.

“What’s this?” you asked taking the pill in between your fingers and twirling it around, inspecting every part.

“Its for pain relief, It’s strong to some people. When I say its strong…It will make you feel like your high and drunk at the same time” Mi Na laughed putting on her high heels, “Don’t worry. If you feel it, just sleep it off.”

You swallowed the hard substance and laid back down. “It’s a shame you can’t go to the party” Mi Na pouted, “Call me if you need anything okay?” she came over and kissed you on the forehead then left.


“I bring the good noods” Yoongi appears at the end of your bed, holding a bowl of hot noodles. “Yoooooongs!” You dragged out and sat up, seeing double of him.

“I guess the medication is strong on you” He placed the noodles down near your bed side table and sat next to your bed.

“Maybe. What are you doing here?” You asked laying back down, grabbing the ‘Totoro’ plushy. “I came to check up on the girl I lo-” Yoongi stopped himself before he could say anymore and saved it with a cough.

“Hope you’re not getting sick…” you whispered, “what do you wanna do?” you asked staring at him appreciating the way is black hair just cover his eyebrows, or the way his eyes are just the right amount of brown and black.

“We could watch a movie? I haven’t seen one in 112 years” Yoongi laughed, you eyes went wide “How old are you!?” you yelled sitting up, not realising how close you two are sitting.

“554 years I think?” he questioned, grabbing your laptop. “Which movie?” he asked, you pushed the fact that he’s 532 years older and found one of your favourites.


“Rose totally could’ve fitted Jack on. Or they could’ve took turns!” Yoongi hollered pushing the laptop off of the bed.

“Shhhh I know, just except the fact he died” you patted his back, Yoongi laid next to you and continued staring.

 You turned to him staring at his eyes, it was silent. Not the kind of silence where everything is awkward, but that good silence. “What?” You asked giggling, “You’re breathtaking” he sighed.

He crawled over you, struggling to hide your blushes you smiled at him. “Where are you going?” you pouted.

“Jungkook gets worried about me when I don’t return home by a certain time” Yoongi sighs again and throws his coat over his shoulder reaching for the door knob.

“Don’t go” you croaked. Yoongi turned around on his heel, a blank look on his face.

“What?” he asked walking back towards you. “Stay here with me, until I fall asleep” you whispered. 

Yoongi put his coat back and crawled back into the position he was in earlier, this time his arms were wrapped around your fragile waist.

Before you drifted off into a deep slumber you told Yoongi something your sub conscious mind was dying to tell.

“Yoongi?”

“Yeah?”

“If I’m breath taking then that makes you…heart stopping”

At that moment, Yoongi swore he could feel his heart beat again.

Negan’s POV
***

You had been in the shower for almost forty minutes and in that time Negan had been pacing the room while listening, hard, to the water running and making sure that you weren’t doing anything that you may regret.

Negan was still taken aback from earlier in the day when you had both laid in bed. He remembered how the sunlight cascaded down your features which were softened by the oblivion of sleep; he could hardly imagine anything more beautiful. He had wanted that moment too last forever, for you both to just lay there in the bliss of nothingness. But of course, that couldn’t last. At some point, you would both have to immerge from the small paradise you had crafted yourselves to face the harsh reality of surviving.

When you had awakened Negan had suggested for you to go take a shower, too wash away the dried blood that still stained your palms. You had nodded silently and walked into the bathroom without a word. You had not immerged since and Negan could feel anxiety creeping up his spine as he paced back and forth in a repetitive loop.

From Father to Son Pt. 1

Being a father is difficult. I have only ever wanted the best for my son, Tyler. The problem is, he just won’t listen to me. He defies me every chance he gets. Just like every other 17 year old, he just thinks he knows everything. In fact, we had just had an argument over another one of his foolish decisions and he stormed off to his bedroom. I just don’t know what to do with him anymore. I guess, worst case scenario, he turns 18 in two months…then he won’t be my problem anymore. I was so frustrated, I am just wanted to take a shower and go to bed.

It happened when I was in the shower. I was letting the warm water run down my chest when my vision began to blur. I braced myself against the wall, when I began feeling nauseous. I blinked a few times and then, all of the sudden, I was laying on the floor. Nausea gone. Vision fine. But something was wrong. I was laying on carpet….last I checked, theres no carpet in my shower. When I sat up and looked around, I noticed I was in Tyler’s room. How did I even get here? I could hear the shower still running two rooms over. I was about to head back to my bedroom, but then I caught a glimpse of what I was wearing.

A Nike shirt and jeans? I was wearing exactly what Tyler was wearing, when we were arguing. Why would I be wearing his clothes? They shouldn’t even fit my larger body. I needed to find Tyler. I walked out of the bedroom, then I saw it. I saw my reflection in the hallway mirror. Except, it wasn’t my reflection….it was Tyler’s! I ran back into Tyler’s room and slammed the door shut. Breathing heavily, I started to catch on. I looked down. The reason Tyler’s clothes fit me, is because I was no longer in my larger body. I was in Tyler’s slim athletic body. Holy Shit. How did this even happen?? I had switched bodies with my son. I cautiously put my (his?) hands on the chest I now possessed. It was’t quite as large, but much more firm. And these arms, also firm. I didn’t realize Tyler was in such good shape. I went into his bathroom and looked in the mirror. Damn, I raised a pretty good looking son. I smiled and rubbed my face. Without even thinking, I took of the shirt Tyler was wearing when we swapped. I gotta say, his body is pretty nice. Everything from his shoulders to the v-lines on his hips.

I cupped my pec with my hand, then slid my hand down to my new belly button. So smooth. I always envied guys with smooth chests. Mine was so harry. I went lower and unbuttoned the jeans. Then I stopped. What was I doing?? This is my son! I can’t just strip him. Aren’t there laws against that kind of thing? Then the guilt quickly passed…..technically I am stripping myself….I mean I am currently in control. This is probably some sick dream anyway. I dropped the jeans to the floor. I was wearing a pair of black under armour underwear. I slid my finger across the waistline. Still feeling the guilt I didn’t look right away. But I could see the bulge. A very healthy bulge. I cupped it with my hand. I could feel it getting hard, the moment I touched it. I gave off a brief moan. I forgot what is was like being this young and hormonal. And hearing Tyler’s voice made it more erotic.

I slid my hand in, passing his neatly trimmed pubes, and grabbed ahold of my borrowed dick. It felt amazing. I dropped the underwear, so I could get a better look. How in the hell is his dick bigger than mine?! Not much bigger. But bigger none the less. I slid my finger along the shaft, letting out another moan. I began stroking it. I kept sliding my hand along my new equipment. Going faster and faster, until I blew my load in the bathroom sink. I haven came like that in years! I saw down on the edge of the bath tub. Sweating and panting. Thats when I saw my body in the door way.

“Just moving right in, aren’t you?” I heard my voice say.

“Tyler?!” I shouted. I didn’t even know what to say.

“For future reference, theres lube in the drawer to your left” He said with a smile.

“Tyler, I am so sorry. I don’t know what happened. I just woke up like this, I shouldn’t have touched your-”

“Don’t even worry about it dad. I have jercked off twice already.”

“What?!” I shouted. Then remembered that he caught me with his dick in my hands. “I guess you would have woken up in the shower….How was it?” I asked, while pulling the underwear back on.

“Better than I expected actually. You have a pretty nice tool.” Tyler cupped my former crotch.

“Thanks, your’s is pretty nice too. Wait! Why would you be expecting to jerk off in my body??”

“Because I was the one that switched us. I figured you would have guessed that by now. You seem so hell bent on controlling my life, so I am letting you control it. While I get to be the adult.”

“So you are giving me your body?” I asked.

“Yep, for now at least. So do what you want. Jerk off again, go screw some girls….or guys. Whatever. I am going to go do the same.” With that, he walked out of the room. I was stunned. Why would he give me his youthful body? Then, I stopped caring about the why. I get to do whatever I want! But first I thought, I reached into the drawer next to me and grabbed the lube. I smiled, and pulled my new dick back out.

Graphic T-Shirt Friday

I apparently donated my Boston Strong t-shirt so this is the closest I have to an encouraging message: Nevertheless, She Persisted. 

I am desperately jealous of all the people heading to Boston this weekend to spectate or to run the marathon. I think this really is a sign I need to get back up there for the race SOON.

Work is so crazy that a Monday feels like it should be Thursday. My head feels like exploding at the end of every day. It’s a frustrating feeling because I’m fairly convinced I have dozens of things slipping through all sorts of cracks. It’s good overall though. We were pretty slow for the first few months of the year and it was definitely freaking my boss out. So: busy is good. Stress is less good but currently a necessary evil. 

Luckily, I am not sick anymore so I’ve been back to running and swimming and last night I died a little during spin class (in a good way). Is it weird that a solid exercise schedule gives me a sense of control? Probably.  Steady exercise also lets me feel less guilty about all the Easter chocolate I’ve consumed. My mom sent me a care package from Germany and I know we all know this but, German chocolate is the best chocolate.

I’m also going to have to write out my marathon training for Berlin soon! Should get started sometime in mid-May which is crazy. Obviously, I’m going to continue doing Hansons. The question is just, what’s the goal pace this time?

Aaaand there’s the phone. Again. At least I’ll be in Reno soon! I mean, still working. But with mountains around me so it’ll feel better. 

GOOD LUCK BOSTON RUNNERS! Persist!

anonymous asked:

Lafayette is watching us and is wondering "What happened to the world I fought in?" (Sorry, this is happening to me when I'm bored xD)

Hello, Nony! Sorry it took so long for me to respond. I am currently home from work sick with a fever, so I finally have the time!

I think you’re right. There are many things currently going on–in the US especially–that Lafayette would be shocked and deeply hurt by. The current anti-French sentiment, for example, would probably be a call to action to him. But we all know about the bad. Let’s take a moment to think about the good.

  • Freedom for all. One of the last letters Lafayette ever wrote addressed the grievous results slavery would have on the future. Seeing POC acting on their own volition, participating in society, and having a voice in government would make him overwhelmingly happy.
  • Representative democracy. After the American experiment became a success, the idea took off. Democracies, constitutional monarchies, and forms of public-responsible government quickly became the ideal. The fact that many major European governments adjusted their systems after the US proved that it could be done successfully may just bring him to tears.
  • France having a president and a functioning National Assembly. Weeping. Hand him the tissues, because the waterworks would flow.
  • The fact that America is still around. Many critics didn’t expect the United States to last as for more than 50 years…let alone over 200. What an incredible legacy to have participated in.
  • Technology. For a guy that was stoked out of his mind over hot air balloons, Lafayette would go bananas at all of the ways one can travel and communicate these days. Getting to America in less than 24 hours?? On something that flies??? ‘Calling’ any of his friends on a little glass box that shows you their faces?? And they can see and hear you too?? He’d be in hysterics.
  • Education. Lafayette was convinced that–in France, not America–only nobility and people who had enough money to be educated should have the ability to vote. Ideally, he wanted *all* people to be able to participate, but it simply wasn’t feasible or, in his opinion, wise to let the masses vote based on their passions alone. What would have facilitated this equality better? Mass education: which America and France now have at their disposal. He’d probably be a little embarrassed at his own short-sightedness…and he’d be very proud of his countries for supplying education for their citizens. 

Those are just a few examples. We must continue to strive for a better world, one that those who came before us…who dreamed before us and sacrificed for those dreams…would be proud of.

Bill ; i believe, It was about a month after dipper and the girls were on the Mindscape, i got frustrated with this heart beat thing ( i believe that i am currently SICK and forever will be) and i found out the source of said heart beat phenomenon was from pine tree so, i did the mistake of throwing him overboard while a mist was covering the orbit we were going through. Resulting in me finding out that He apparently has this… Ends justify the means kind of morality. so let’s just say it was both a thrilling and frightening moment for me and the crew. It was like an angel of death came, killing my men off one by one, or at least it looked like he killed them.

long story short… I fell for both this dangerous side of his that was like a silent reaper and his merciful side that was like an angel that looked at us with blessings, especially when i found out that my men were apparently still alive

he was simply Perfect for a lunatic such as myself that i couldn’t just let him go

(dipper is holding his ‘scavenging knife’  usually used for slicing acarcanian animal meat and skin, he caries it EVERYWHERE for just in case emergencies and since dipper was a scavenger his nails were made for climbing so they can sharpen at will making them kind of a deadly weapons, simply put dipper used the smoke from the mist to his advantage and stealth paralyze the crew members with a bit of a jab to the ribs/limbs (depends) with space jellyfish neuro toxins )

Quick question: how do you think Scotty would react if he learned his s/o had a migraine that made them nauseated? I am currently experiencing something similar (but I am also sick so that's not helping me much 😢) and I just feel like Scotty would cuddle his s/o or carry them to Bones for help (I just really need a Scotty hug right now. I feel pretty run down). I would love to get your opinion on this matter if it's not too troublesome~

Ooooo love it!  Hit me with all your Scotty Headcannons!  

(and I’m sorry I didn’t see this before, I hope you’re feeling better!)


-Scotty’s surprisingly good at picking up on the fact that you’re not feeling well. 

-So even if you tried to work through the pain, he would notice and immediately tell you to go back to your quarters and get some rest.  

-When he checks up on you later, and finds you are in more pain than before, and now are nauseated, he tells you that you need to go see Dr. McCoy. 

-Normally loud and outspoken, when he realizes you’re in pain he becomes soft and gentle, speaking is quiet, calming tones, and his touches are soothing.

-You try to refuse, because the pain is too great to walk and you get dizzy from standing up, so Scotty gently slides one arm under you knees and one around your back, picking you up.  

-Cradling you to his chest, he is silent as he carries you to the medbay, only speaking softly once to tell you to close your eyes, that it would make the pain less. 

-He stays by your side the entire time you’re being treated, always touching you in some way, whether that’s a hand on yours, or on your shoulder, even your ankle.  

-He is very concerned for your well-being, and since he basically wears his heart on his sleeve, you can tell that he hates when you feel sick like this, and you find his concern endearing and so sweet. 

-After a few hours you begin to feel a lot better, and you chat softly with Scotty as he strokes your hand with his thumb.  

-Dr. McCoy releases you, and you let Scotty carry you back to your quarters after he insists a million times.  

-He settles you in bed, tucking you in nice and comfy, and makes you a cup of tea and replicates your favourite snack, setting it on your bedside for later, after you’ve slept a little.  

-Now he’s unsure of what you need to feel better, so he stands at the end of your bed, looking down at you through concerned eyes until you ask him to stay with you, lay down next to you. 

-His lips curl into a smile for the first time since he realized you were sick and he wastes no time stripping off his shoes and moving the covers so he can join you. 

-He curls over you protectively, pressing his chest to your back, sliding an arm around your stomach and entwining your legs, asking a mumbled “Is this alrigh’?” every time he moves so he can make sure you’re comfortable.  

-He kisses the back of your neck softly, telling you he loves you before the warmth of his body lulls you to sleep. 


I hope this was alright!  I am not so good at headcannons (I just want to write the entire fic every single time) but I liked this one, it gets my creative juices flowing. 

If anyone has any other headcannons they want for Scotty, hit me up!  I would love to write them!

I really am sick of being saying how Izzy’s currently plot line is ‘weak’ and they want their ‘strong Izzy’ back and how it’s a dumb arc. Like no, let me explain why this arc is actually STRENGHT. 

1) Izzy did not know she was taking an addictive drug. Someone in power, who is supposed to have the whole institutes best interests at heart, gave it to her and explained it like a natural remedy. Most people just accept anything handed to them by a doctor/teacher/parent without questioning it, because they think that person has their best interests at heart just like Izzy did. 

2) She’s not weak. She’s not letting the addiction take her over and just keep doing it and not giving a fuck what happens to her life, she’s taking control. She’s fighting it. 

3) ‘but she’s doing it again with Sebastian’. No, she not. She ASKED what it was and even said ‘I’m not taking it if I don’t know what it is.’ She’s not making the same mistake as last time. Should she have researched it first? yes, but she was in a bad place and trying to get better. She didn’t just take what was handed to her. 

Izzy is strong, very strong, and most people who are giving her crap can’t even go a day without Coffee or Soda or other everyday ‘drugs’ that they’re addicted to. So don’t say Izzy is weak or stupid, she isn’t.

The beach I just spent four days at is currently infested with massive amounts of bacteria. I’ve been swimming in this water for four days. I ate fish out of this water. I am super sick. Currently having a Doctor friend come make sure I’m not dying and I’m going to the hospital if it doesn’t get any better.
Replies are haulted

Sorry for the delay in replies guys, I am currently bed ridden and sick welp. I also have an exam tomorrow which I’m unable to attend… so here’s to praying for a rewrite. This could have all been avoided had my lovely friend not made me stand out in to the rain for two hours while she browsed an outside market… I swear, who wants to be outside in the middle of winter?
