cupid’s chokeholdfrank is REALLY BAD at being a cupid. really. terrible. gerard is a cupid’s worst nightmare. or is he ;)

in a pretty how town the only kidfic that has ever mattered….they love each other so much it made me cry real tears….the slowest burn but the greatest payoff…its so good that its bottom gerard and i still am telling you to read it
I have never been a person that likes being forced to read. I am about the slowest reader you’ll ever meet and I can’t enjoy a story if I’m rushed. I am notorious for starting books and never finishing them because I can’t read them fast enough. Then suddenly I found the perfect book and I still can’t seem to put her down. I’m desperate to read through her past, thrilled to be a part of her present, and hopeful to be written in words of her future. For once I don’t feel rushed on every page I read. she’s at just the right pace for me and I hope her story is one I never stop reading. I hope it goes on forever, no matter how many pages there are.
also psa that if you ever wanna talk to me (to thread/plot/or just wanna talk to me) and ur scared to/intimidated: about a little over a month ago i broke my ankle while i was playing mini golf. let that sink in and think about the kind of person i fuckin am. are you still intimidated? yes? wtf who fucking breaks their ankle at mini golf. a dumb ass piece of shit meme that’s who
also also heads up i’m one of the slowest people on planet earth like i am literally part sloth so keep that in mind too
Emma’s face was riddled with guilt despite the fact that she hadn’t technically done anything wrong. It wasn’t her fault that little Regina had just popped out of thin air and nearly sent her toppling to the ground in surprise. She had just been trying to manage the situation as best she could.
Still, she bit her lip nervously under the heat of Regina’s glare as she muttered, “Er…”
Henry echoed his birthmother, an “Er…” of his own slipping from his lips as he wore a similar expression to Emma’s, despite him also having had nothing to do with this situation.
The young Regina glanced from Emma to Henry, confused by their reactions, before merely attempting to reconcile whatever it was that had caused such tension. She smiled a little awkwardly at her older self, though bright nonetheless, and said, “You are…I…” She laughed at herself for a moment before trying once more. “We, I suppose is best, are quite beautiful at thirty-two.”
Regina wasn’t amused. She put a hand up to signify that her younger self should stop talking before turning back to Emma. “Well…?”
“Erm…see,” Emma began, scratching at the back of her head. “See, what had happened was…you, well not you, but you know, you her you…” She turned to point at the younger Regina who just sort of awkwardly waved.
sometimes i think about how tony and ziva’s relationship was the slowest slow burn to ever slow burn. and then i think about how the only payoff was one single real kiss before she left the show. and that was that. it was over.
i’m a good person. why do these things happen to me.
ok so I think we can all agree that season 5b has been a little tough on our ship. It’s currently caught in the middle of a storm and by that I mean it’s not moving forward (arguably moving backwards, even). So if you’re feeling discouraged by what you’re seeing out there, here are some things that might refresh your memory and convince you to never give up on this 13-year-old boat of ours:
