“Even as a child, she had preferred night to day, had enjoyed sitting out in the yard after sunset, under the star-speckled sky listening to frogs and crickets. Darkness soothed. It softened the sharp edges to the world, toned down the too-harsh colors. With the coming of twilight, the sky seemed to recede; the universe expanded. The night was bigger than the day, and in its realm, life seemed to have more possibilities.”

She’d run into the night, embracing her freedom and spirit. Trying to capture her would be like searching for the end of darkness; the pitch black sky absorbed her mind. Nothing comforted her more than the silence the world offered at this time. Some would say she became absent during the day, and that looking at her was almost like looking through her. Her vacant eyes revealed nothing except the loss of another chance to escape. Shielding the sun let her recognize the real light burned inside. Reaching her hands up, waving them in the blank space, she cradled the muted stars and let them fall.

BOOKS READ IN 2016: The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig

Flecks of foam washed our feet. Words came to mind and then melted away like spun sugar on my tongue. Last night, there had been so much to say, but tomorrow had become today, and everything was different.

sherlolly and warstan children being bffs. mary, john, molly and sherlock being parents and loving each other's children headcanons? JUST ALL THE PARENT!LOCK HEADCANONS INCLUDING MARY AND JOHN LOL

Oh, I am soooooo down for this!

Originally posted by livingthegifs

  1. Mary and John have their second child, another girl, before Sherlock and Molly have their only child, a son. Molly doesn’t have a very easy pregnancy, and she and Sherlock decide one child is enough for them because they are also a pretty integral part of the lives of the Watson girl’s lives.
  2. Rosie and her sister, Abigail Louise, absolutely adore Victor Hamish Holmes. He is not quite as enthused most of the time because he is in a “girls, eww” stage. But if anyone picks on his honorary sisters, they get fists in the face. Only he can pick on them (they take it in stride because he never says anything REALLY mean).
  3. The “eww girls” phase only lasts until Victor is six, and then he and Abigail (who is seven, nearly eight) are inseperable. Rosie is nine and she says her sister and Victor are MATES and they usually tackle her and then tickle fights ensue until there is one true victor (usually one of the adults, because they get drug into it and they are bigger).
  4. Molly and Mary don’t dare get their hopes up that Victor and Abby actually fancy each other, but sometimes they muse on actually being related and all and being the sisters the other never had and wouldn’t that be nice?
  5. Rosie goes through a phase where she thinks about nothing but being a specialist registrar when she’s eleven and she shadows Molly at Barts and no one except her teachers are at all disturbed that she’s spending time in the morgue on the weekends. She’s actually quite good at the little tasks Molly gives her and she takes note to see if Rosie is still interested when she gets older to see about getting her into the university she went to or an internship or something.
  6. When she’s twelve she gets interested in her Uncle Sherlock’s work, and so do Victor and Abby, and suddenly there’s three children shadowing Sherlock and John at crime scenes and Scotland Yard is asking DIs Lestrade and Donovan why don’t you find this disturbing? When they say the kids are Holmes and Watson’s, it’s understood some things are just meant to be.
  7. This phase actually lasts three years. Victor solves two cases before his father. Abby solves four. Sherlock suggests they start their own blog. His wife and the Watsons say perhaps they can just start with cases at school instead. Sherlock slips them the occasional 1s and 2s.
  8. Rosie meets a boy she’s crazy about that John isn’t quite sure about. Mary is even less sure and shadows them on their first date, blending right into the crowd. The boy tries to make a move Rosie doesn’t want him to and she breaks his nost and sprains his wrist the way her mum showed her. Mary gets home before Rosie does, a wide smile on her face. She never tags along on one of Rosie’s dates again.
  9. Victor and Abby go to a party their mutual mate from school is throwing where there is a ton of alcohol and random silly games. Neither imbibe but they do play some of the games. One is a truth or dare game, and Victor is supposed to kiss Abby but refuses. Abby leaves in a huff and Victor goes after her and when he catches up to her he asks if she fancies him. She rolls her eyes and says it should be obvious. He said he thought it was but he wasn’t about to kiss her for a silly game without properly courting her first, and she’s surprised for a moment before she moves and kisses him first.
  10. Mary and Molly almost start planning the wedding the moment they hear about it.

send me an AU and i’ll tell you 5 of my headcanons for it

  • Australian Aboriginal scifi with a predominantly Aboriginal cast
  • filmed in and around Sydney
  • does not hold back on the metaphor for race relations AT ALL
  • the Aboriginal men are intelligent, sexual, caring and not in the least emasculated
  • the Aboriginal women I am waiting to see another side to aside from wife and victim
  • it’s airing simultaneously on Aussie ABC as well as on the Sundance channel
  • second season has already been commissioned

  • the white people are the least interesting in this story and so they bloody well should be 
  • did I mention how completely unapologetic it is about depicting the vile conditions Aboriginal people have and still face, how it totally depicts the struggle the Aboriginal person has between cultures?
  • Aboriginal superheroes … already one guy and I am really hoping for a girl awakening to her potential in the second ep

anonymous asked:

55 + Calum maybe I feel like it would be adorable :))))

(#55: “Our first date is a picnic on a beach under the stars? Have you swallowed a romance novel? Do I need to call a doctor?”)


Gentle, smooth waves tenderly kissed the soft shoreline as you stared out at the sea, the faintest hue of pink still striped across the sky just above the horizon as if it forgot that it too had to flee the horizon with the sun. It wasn’t necessarily a cold night but the breeze tousling your hair was a little chilly considering you were sitting still on a cliche white and red checkered blanket; the brunette parallel to you busy pulling an abundance of food out of a weaved wooden basket.

“I can’t say I expected this when you asked me on a date, Cal,” you teased, the smile already present on your lips spreading even wider as the boy’s cheeks flushed red.

“Well, if you want, we can pack up and go and see a movie or something,” Calum babbled, already moving to stuff the food back inside, “I just thought, you know, it might be fun to not do something cliche but–”

“Hey,” you gently comforted, lightly placing your hand on Calum’s tensed arm and not failing to recognize the way his muscles immediately loosened at your touch. “I was just teasing. This is awesome.”

The brunette smiled, beginning to continue his work again and you figured because his shoulders were now relaxed and his movements were quite fluid now, it was okay to start teasing him again. After all, he was your best friend. “But seriously,” you started. “Our first date is a picnic on a beach under the stars?” Butterflies nipped at your stomach’s walls listening to the high pitched giggle that flowed from Calum’s mouth. “Have you swallowed a romance novel? Do I need to call a doctor?

“Shut up, Y/N,” said, rolling his eyes fondly. “You know you love it.”

“Eh, it’s whatever.”

“Just eat the damn food,” Calum playfully demanded, settling down across from you and unwrapping a handmade sandwich.

“Did you make all of this?” you questioned the brunette, making sure to take note of every food present before deciding what to eat.

“Mhm,” Calum hummed, his mouth full. After swallowing, he added, “Had to be special, you know?”

“Sure,” you agreed, smiling down at the sub you began to unwrap.

“Seriously,” Calum claimed. “It’s not everyday you finally take your best friend out on a first date.”

You shrugged, heat rising uncomfortably to your cheeks. “I know, it’s just weird.” Upon not hearing a reply, you curiously shifted your gaze from where it’d wandered to the ocean again and widened your eyes at Calum’s crestfallen expression. “No no no, not like that!” you quickled rushed to say. “I just mean, you know it’s weird, but– but it’s a good weird, you know?”

The brunette cocked his head to the side.

“It’s like…” you sighed, cursing yourself for always having a hard time with articulating your thoughts. “It’s like, you know, before… everyone would always tease us like ‘you guys should just get married already’ and…” You shrugged, “I guess not that a first date is anything equivalent to getting married but like, everyone saw it before us, you know?”

Calum smiled down at his sandwich. “No,” he corrected, “Everyone but you saw it.”

Your eyebrows crinkled in surprise. “Wait, what?”

The brunette’s chest vibrated with brilliant laughter. “I’ve always known, you know? I’ve always known it was gonna be you.”
