↳ “ First I get a glimpse of the blond braid down her back. Then, as she yanks off her coat to cover a wailing child, I notice the duck tail formed by her untucked shirt. I have the same reaction I did the day Effie Trinket called her name at the reaping. At least, I must go limp, because I find myself at the base of the flagpole, unable to account for the last few seconds. Then I am pushing through the crowd, just as I did before. Trying to shout her name above the roar. I’m almost there, almost to the barricade, when I think she hears me. Because for just a moment, she catches sight of me, her lips form my name. And that’s when the rest of the parachutes go off. ”
feel free to change the pronouns as fit! these sentences starters were taken from starcrossed by josephine angelini, a paranormal romance ya novel. this will be part three of a meme series as i love these books too much.
“What are you telling people about us?”
“Are you trying to make me jealous or are you just so frustrated that you’re already looking for someone else?”
“I am NOT looking for anyone else!”
“I feel awful.”
“You’re scaring me. Here, sit, please. Do you need something?”
“I need to tell you what’s going on, so that you and I don’t accidentally kill each other over a dumb misunderstanding, and I need you to promise me that if I tell you, you’re not going to beat anyone up.”
“I don’t think I like this deal.”
“Right. You are so smart.”
“I’m such an idiot.”
“You’re a jealous idiot, and that has to change right now.”
“You have no reason to be jealous. I told you that I don’t want anyone but you. I never have.”

“I just realized, we’ve been fighting all day.”
“I know it freaks you out, but as harsh as it sounds, you’ve just got to get over it.”
“This is who you are, and I’m not afraid of you. So you shouldn’t be, either.”
“I didn’t know. I guess I should start paying better attention to that.”

“That will never work on me.”
“Promise me that you will speak to me again. Even if it’s just once.”
“You don’t understand what’s happening, do you?”
“You’re still a virgin, right?”
“If you don’t think it’s possible for someone to be driven mad by love, it’s only because you haven’t truly felt it yet.”

“I know it, and I hate it, but I just can’t seem to stop.”

I was going to do some kind of “Get to Know Me” post, but since I’ve just started this blog and am trying to connect with DS9 folks, here instead is a list of 25 things I love about DS9. Going from broad to really specific.
Any time Sisko goes “What?!”
Kira busting up men twice her size.
When Garak’s mouth makes that little O of surprise / “I’m going to kill you slowly.”
The Art Nouveau stained glass in Quark’s.
How Ferengi have painted finger and toenails.
The amazing makeup, on recurring characters, repeat alien races (like the Jem’Hadar), or even one-offs.
Story arcs – two-parters, 4-parters, the whole last season practically.
Diverse cast and it’s no big deal.
O’Brien just keeps on working.
Way fewer utterly stupid holosuite episodes than TNG.
Witty dialogue, especially Garak and Quark and anybody.
Kira and Jadzia are badass women together.
Rom’s character jumping from stereotype into something much more interesting.
Characters getting into relationships with one another. (Except that dang, Garak and Bashir didn’t get to, boo.)
Exploration of all kinds of ethical, social, political issues, with acceptance of shades of gray.
Humans are in the minority.
Gul Dukat pops up every few episodes to strut and puff and be an asshole.
Weyoun is so awful yet loveable.
Garak Garak Garak Garak.
I know that was really, really random, but I did cover a lot, I hope!
Okay so I was going to wait until I had finished all the Mayuris and just post them all at once, but I am trying to go quickly and there are still 3 left, so I will post those separately. Here’s the meme.
AU where Sirius is a former child star just trying to go to college and “live a normal life” and Remus keeps posting memes of Sirius from his glory days in their class Facebook page.
This started as tags on the post, but then the tags got too long (this is super long - so sorry). And this is also sort of for @lala-lady-elena because you said you enjoy my tags and this is basically tags in not tag form - and I saw the post when you reblogged it <3.
The amount of messages that Sirius probably sent THIS KID
THAT JUST WON’T LET HIS DEMONS REST IN PIECE
and telling him that he needs to FOR THE LOVE OF GOD
because he is RUINING his reputation as cool and suave
Sirius has put a lot of effort into making people forget about his very unfortunate childhood
(not that he was a bad actor)
(in fact, he actually won some award)
not that THE KID can ever know this
(warning: the kid definitely already knows this and is simply waiting for the best time to use this information to his advantage)
because if Sirius has to do something
he might as well excel
but that doesn’t mean he enJOYED it
how DARE you insinuate that Prongs?
I would never be so materialistic
‘just yesterday you cried because the crop top you wanted was $40′
IT IS A PIECE OF FABRIC
IT SHOULD NOT COST THAT MUCH
IT IS AN OUTRAGE
I JUST WANT TO LOOK PRETTY
I got distracted by my own personal outrage at the price of clothing and decided to let Sirius be dramatic for me
but back to THIS KID
who won’t let Sirius be super cool and fly at uni
as he studies art???
how to be a pe teacher???
idk let’s go with law
and THIS KID only responds to Sirius’s messages with memes of Sirius
and Sirius has no idea who this kid is
he’s never seen him on campus before
he doesn’t know what his major is
does he even go to the school???
so now one of tho things occurs
Sirius starts posting flyers around the school
obviously they’re memed
asking for information on the Sirius Black memester
he probably offers massages (from James) or something like that - maybe authentic Indian food?
well Lily sees it, and she’s Remus’s bff
and to be frank, she is sick and tired of Remus Lupin going on and on about wonder child Sirius Black and how amazing he is
honeslty, the amount of information that Remus has amassed on Sirius would make both the CIA and the FBI proud
Remus probably knew things about Sirius that Sirius didn’t know
Lily was creeped out
and in desperate need of a massage
so she gives Sirius Remus’s contact info, and she gets her massage from James and then everything is happily ever after
the next semester starts
and Sirius is taking this ancient civilizations course
and he sees this super dorky adorable guy sitting in the front/middle of the room
and Sirius positions himself so that he’d be able to see a clear view of this adorables guys’ face
and it’s a relatively small class
so the prof calls out names (I don’t know if this is a thing that happens in uni’s if it isn’t, call it poetic license)
and the prof calls out remus lupin
and Sirius makes a mental note that THE KID is in the class
because he was too busy staring at the adorable guys face to pay attention to who responded
and after class
Sirius runs out after the adorable guy (he didn’t pay attention and didn’t realize class was dismissed)
and he yells out before he can stop himself
and adorable guy turns around
and Sirius doesn’t know what to say
so he goes, “do you know who Remus Lupin is? I need to talk to him”
and Remus has sort of been planning this since he first saw Sirius walk into the class
goes, “yeah sure, let me give you his number”
AND JUST GIVES SIRIUS HIS NUMBER
AND THEN TURNS AROUND AND JUST WALKS AWAY
Sirius is dumfounded
he did not see Remus turn the corner and jump in happiness at his success like the little dork that is
and slowly makes his way back to his apartment/dorm with james
where he texts remus and then they live happily ever after
because I really need to stop typing and do homework
(so many things have been going wrong this year. And I know you are all going through very hard times, whether it be from loss or your own depression killing you. But I do see you, I see what’s going on and I wish I could do more to help aside from a few words and a silly meme.
You are amazing, you do not deserve the things happening to you. And you’re all so so strong and brave for having pulled this far, not giving up when things wen’t from bad to worse. I am So Proud of you all for surviving. Taking each day by day, powering through in anyway you know you can. Whether you’re still laying in your bed for the third day straight or if you are trying to force yourself to move through the pain, You Made It.
This may not make a lot of sense, but I just want you all to know that you are loved, you are not alone. You never will be alone. And things will get better. It may not seem it, but it will, I promise.
Please keep your chin up. Keep fighting. You can do this. Don’t give up now.
