8k words, G rated
Scorpius is being weird – more weird than normal, that is. He’s spending longer than ever in the library, he hasn’t spoken to Albus in weeks, and he keeps forgetting to do his homework. Albus is determined to find out what’s wrong with him and help. That’s just what you have to do when your best friend is upset.
Oliver was fiddling with the bible in his hand, watching the
second hand on the clock as it slowly made its way to 7 pm. Each minute that
passed was another minute closer to youth group starting which meant it was
another minute closer to it being over. Oliver knew the drill, everyone came
in, grabbed a bible and a chair then sat in a large circle. Then they’d be
split into smaller groups, assigned a verse and the discuss it before all
coming back together and talking about life’s temptations and ways in which
they reject Satan.
Oliver did his part, playing the card of religious son. Then
once his parents went to bed, he’d plug his headphones in to his phone and wank
to the dirtiest porn he could find for free. He had gotten his Wednesday nights
down to a routine.
Some Mom Amethyst doodles. She’s the most physically affectionate of the two mothers, she likes to randomly hold the gemlings up and carry them around, or hug them, or throw them in the air and catch them(which causes Pearl to freak out if she’s around to see it). Of course, she shapeshifts to entertain them a lot (they like it when she turns into animals specially). About that sad Amethyst looking at the pearl gemling: Don’t worry, Amethyst loves her little pearl, she just can’t help wondering about her being such a small gemling, she worries the baby inherited her “defectiveness”.
I want to write a YOI fanfic but I just feel so overwhelmed by all the cultural differences. I am not from Russia or Japan. And it's embarrassing to mess something up. I don't know. -sigh- Does anyone have any advice?
Research, research, research! Google is your best friend, believe me! As well, don’t be afraid to reach out and ask fo help (like you’re doing now!) from people who live there! If you’re uncomfortable with specifics, try to stay away from topics/words that can be interpreted in different ways. For example, there are multiple ways to say “I love you” in Japanese, so if you’re going to have a character say it, make sure it’s the right one!
Don’t feel embarrassed if you don’t get something right, we all can’t be perfect, and since you don’t live there, no one can blame you for doing anything wrong on purpose!
I am finding myself in my breath. It is the the first thing that belongs to me, it is the last thing I will take on my own. I create my breath, and my breath allows me to create myself. It circles through me, slightly different each time, just as I am different each time. I breathe into myself and I breathe out of myself: breathe in the good, breathe out the bad, and embrace my new self each time.
it’s tough to think about how different i am from how i was… i guess i was like that in my old life for a lot of reasons, and im like this in my new one for a lot of reasons too! i think there’s parts of me i miss and parts of me im glad i have now. i wish i could still be angry like i was, firey and unapologetic, but im glad i know how to show kindness and gentleness to the people i love… character development i guess!
