i am unable to be happy at this moment

What About Lars?

Having just binge-watched the latest Stevenbomb, I see a lot of people on my dash freaking out about how Steven’s in the clutches of Gems who know he’s got Rose Quartz’s gem and are plotting to do who-knows-what to him, and how all his friends back on Earth are freaking out about his sacrifice and blah blah blah.

Not gonna lie, I’m worried about what kind of shit poor Steven is going through, but I’m more worried about Lars Barriga.

You know, the same Lars who, in “Island Adventure”, admits in a moment of weakness to feeling astoundingly isolated from others?

The Lars who, according to “The New Lars”, is suffering academically, probably because of a host of un-diagnosed mental issues?

The Lars who admits, in “Tiger Philanthropist”, he doesn’t know what would make him happy?

The Lars who, in “The Good Lars”, is desperate for friends but also unable to reach out to anybody for fear of rejection?

The Lars who probably thinks Sadie and everyone else hates him and thinks he’s a coward because he ran away from Topaz in “I Am My Mom”, when running from a hulking space alien who is giving Connie and Steven a hard time would actually be a perfectly understandable reaction?

And the Lars who would never admit to any of this and instead hides it behind being a sarcastic jerk who hates everybody, and is currently stuck on Aquamarine’s ship with Steven?

I’m honestly terrified for the guy.

Kind and Goofy

I thank (and blame) @pixletta for this. This is based on a short story they gave me and I just- 

ENJOY

Au where your world is black and white until you kiss your soulmate


Jeremy had always thought of his life as simple. For years he only had to focus on three things: his music loving best friend, his obnoxious teenage bully and the love of his life - the main ingredients for a teenage boy. He had grown used to the black and white surroundings he had grown up in. However this all changed when he got the Squip. 

 The little computer in his head was adamant on him becoming more than his nerdy persona. He insulted him, manipulated him into getting what he wanted and soon Jeremy found himself rising above his ranks. He was talking to the popular kids, he was wearing more fashionable clothing and his once teenage bully was not practically his best friend. All he wanted now was her - his soulmate.

But apparently, that was too much to ask. 

 "What do you mean it might not be Christine?“ Jeremy questioned his Squip out loud in his bedroom where no one else could hear. His dad had gone out to get groceries (thankfully with pants) so the house was his for the time being. 

 "I’m saying,” the CPU stated, taking his physical form over to the end of the bed, “that soulmates are not the result of science, therefore I am unable to calculate who the particular human will be, given that there are roughly 7,500,000,000 people roaming the Earth at this given moment. It is very unlikely that your soulmate is Christine." 

 "But it has to be!” Jeremy interjected. “Soulmates have a bond, and I can feel that bond between us." 

 "You don’t even know her Jeremy.”

 "I don’t need to! When I close my eyes, I can picture us together, and we’re happy. Whenever I see her, I just want to kiss her and tell her how much I love her. I want her to tell me how much she needs me… I want to know that I’m her favourite person.“ Jeremy was soon lost in his own daydream and failed to notice that the Squip had suddenly taken interest.

I felt like a hypocrite. As much as I had dreaded someone from the Avengers knocking on my door – I was finding myself wishing for it. I wanted Bucky to fight for me – I wanted him to prove me wrong. I needed him to. Days went by in a blur as I debated with myself on what I should do. Maybe he was still on his mission? Maybe Tony had told him to let me be? I couldn’t find an adequate excuse for it.

“Are you sure he won’t just show up at your door?” Nicole asked one morning – arching her eyebrows in curiosity.

“I’ve only ever talked to him about the cottage once… and it was just in passing,” I shrugged miserably.

“Well maybe he’s trying to get ahold of you? Have you checked your phone?” she asked casually.

“No – it’s been off since I got here,” I added miserably.

“Well maybe you should…”

“NO,” I snapped at her. As much as I wanted him to fabricate from thin air – I also really didn’t want to know why he hadn’t told me. I had made up my mind that I wouldn’t like his reasoning, and that was that.


I walked into the living room rubbing my eyes wearily. I had somehow managed to doze off as I snuggled in the oversized bed reading my dad’s beaten copy of Kurt Vonnegut’s “Slaughterhouse-Five.” I stretched my arms as I peered around the room – spotting Nicole on the couch in front of the fireplace. “Hey,” I muttered quietly. Her head immediately snapped in my direction as she quickly hid her hands. “What are you? OH NO. I told you no!” I roared as I went to snatch the phone from her hands. “Now they’ll know where I’m at! Dammit Nicole!” After a brief struggle I victoriously grabbed the phone from her hands and crossed my arms – huffing angrily.

“Ten missed calls, one  voicemail, and twenty text messages,” she stated as a fact.

“Huh?” I asked confused.

“Those are all from this Bucky guy. It seems like he might care,” she shrugged casually. I rolled my eyes annoyed and stomped back into the bedroom determined to hide there for the rest of the night.

As I curled up in the bed I couldn’t help, but feel like the phone I held in my hand felt like a lead weight. Should I go ahead and look? There was no way that Tony hadn’t locked onto where I was within fifteen minutes. Bucky, Tony, or Steve would be here in a matter of hours – so there was no point in holding out any longer… I needed to go ahead and face whatever he had to say so I could prepare myself. I reluctantly lifted the phone to my face – it was best to get the voicemail out of the way first. I clicked on the message before putting the phone on speaker and listened.

Bucky’s voice permeated the quiet of the room. My heart sank as I listened.

“Y/N… Tony said that you left a few days ago but wouldn’t tell him where you were going… I… I know something happened between you and Nat. Please call… please let me explain. I don’t… I don’t want to lose you over this. I… I’m sorry,” his voice was so incredibly sad that I had to bite the inside of my cheek to keep myself from crying. When he paused at the end of the message my heart had done a backflip. I had never realized how much I wanted to hear him say that he loved me – but my hopes fell as flat as his voice as the recording ended.

I flipped through the the text messages quickly.

-Hey! I’m coming home – can’t wait to see your beautiful face.

-Steve just talked to Tony and he said you left???

-Is everything okay?

-I tried to call but it went straight to voicemail. Y/N please call me.

-Y/N, it’s not what you think. Please call me doll. Please come home. I miss you. I need to explain.

-I know I fucked it all up but please let me explain.

They kept going – each one a different variation of the one before it. I felt sick. It had been easier to accept everything when I had cut myself off from him. I sighed heavily. The truth was so glaringly obvious – I had never really accepted what had happened – just prolonged the inevitable. As I was flipping through the rest of the texts Bucky’s picture illuminated the screen. I froze in absolute panic – he was calling and I had accidentally just hit “answer.”

I stared at the phone – completely frozen in fear.

“Y/N,” Bucky’s voice said softly from the other end. I remained silent. I didn’t know what to do or what to say. It was as if I had suddenly turned into a statue. Bucky took my silence as a sign that I was going to listen and suddenly it was as if a flood gate had opened from his end of the conversation. “Doll, I am so sorry. I don’t know what all happened, but I know this is my fault. I swear I was going to tell you… I was going to explain everything, but I was just so afraid. So afraid of saying or doing the wrong thing and losing you… because you make me so happy. I haven’t… well I haven’t been this happy in a long time,” he paused for a moment waiting for my response. I sat in silence still unable to articulate the hundreds of conversations I had played out in my mind between us the last few days. “Doll…. Please. Please say something,” he pleaded – the edge of desperation cutting into his words.

All of my faculties seemed to have been taken over by some unknown part of myself that was unwilling to be hurt the way I had been hurt before. “There’s nothing left to say, Bucky…. Goodbye,” I said quietly before ending the call. I didn’t even know the words that were spilling out of my mouth until it was too late. I sat dumbfounded at myself as I stared at the phone in my hand. Why would I say that? What had I just done? Tears welled in my eyes as I realized that I could have very well ended everything then – he was trying and I had shut him down.

I jumped slightly as the door opened and Nicole came into the room. She looked at me apologetically as she held up two wine glasses and a bottle.

“I thought maybe we could use this tonight?”

I nodded sadly as tears streamed down my face.

[TRANS] Shukan Josei - Main Interview

Q. “You just released your first ‘BEST OF’ Album, ‘THE BEST OF BTS,’ which covered all of your activities in Japan for two and a half years. Are there any songs that deeply attached to?”
JH: For me it’s “FOR YOU.” It was our first original Japanese song, so it’s very meaningful to me.
SG: For me it’s the Japanese version of “I NEED U.” I like how the Japanese lyrics are slightly different than the Korean lyrics. 

Q. “Within the Japanese activities until now, what has left an impression (on you)?”
J: This is not exactly what you are talking about, but… during the last song of a concert, I always look all around the venue. During that moment, I feel something that isn’t quite happiness nor sadness, it becomes this feeling where I am unable to say anything. That lingering feeling during the ending left the strongest impression. Every concert truly leaves me warm hearted.
JM: Our first showcase (December 2013) was in front of about 500 fans. As we did more performances, our venue has grown as well. Now, we have been able to meet lots of fans through our arena tours. Every time, I am very grateful for everything that has happened.
SG: I was also super happy when we were able to participate in large music festivals such as Summer Sonic and a-nation!

Q. “At the 2016 Mnet Asian Music Awards” you won the grand prize (Daesang), given to the ‘Artist of the Year.’ We saw the tears up on stage, what did you feel then?”
SG: When we heard the announcement, I started to remember everything we achieved from when we were trainees 7 years ago. The tough times, the happy times. So many memories were going through my head and my heart was full of emotion. Before I realized it, I was crying. I couldn’t stop the tears…
JK: I was really grateful to our ARMYs. That’s why, whatever happened, I didn’t want to cry on stage, but I saw the fans and couldn’t help but cry because they have worked hard with us and supported us. I was so grateful that I cried. I am really…, we are really lucky.
RM: We were so happy that we went to eat dinner right after arriving back in Korea from Hong Kong! We ordered pasta and pizza.
JH: Since the day after we won the award was also Jin-hyung’s birthday,
V: We were able to celebrate both (at the same time).
J: I ate suuuper delicious food (serious face)!
JH: While we ate, we all reminisced.
JM: It was fun.

Q. “Apart from the award, BTS was the first Korean artist to place 26th on the American Billboard Chart and placed 1st for the iTunes Chart for 27 countries. 2016 must be a year you’ll never forget.”
SG
: When we go to countries like Brazil, which are on the opposite side of the world from Korea, and feel the love from fans in those countries, I feel that we are really benefiting from this age in time.
V: But…, I want to be more love in Japan as well! (he then made a dog with his fingers and pretended to bite the arm of Jungkook who was sitting next to him)
JK: (As if this was familiar (to Jungkook), while escaping from V [he said]) That’s right, we really think this.
RM: It’s really interesting. When we perform overseas, fans of completely different nationalities and languages sing our songs with us.
V: It’s amazing.
RM: This year will be the start of a new “time” that is different from before, for both us and the fans.
JM: The truth is, right now, there is a performance that we are thinking of. One which will look cool to anyone and shows us enjoying the stage. We will continue running towards that goal.
JK: I want to grow more! In order for that growth to become our weapon.

Q. “Continuous hard work made the BTS who they are today. By the way, what is something that has and has not changed about BTS since debut?”
SG
: Something that hasn’t changed since debut is our mindset that singing and performance are the top priorities. Even though there are things each member wants to try, we think that we should first think about the goals of the group and what we should aim to be as a group. I think that is one of our strong points (as well).
RM
: Another one is practice. First, practice. Second, practice. Recently, things that used to take 10 will now only take 5. I think that we’ve become more efficient.

Q. “Seeing your performances, the dances are so complex, it looks really tiring…”
SG: (serious face) To be honest, it is tiring.
BTS: (lol)
RM
: But that intense practice is what made us who we are today, so we can’t stop.
V: Don’t stop~!

Q. “I want to recommend that you guys stop and rest sometimes.”
SG: Recently, it’s been very difficult because we’ve had to practice tough choreography continuously for many performances. Until around last year, it’s accurate to say that we just pushed through with it. But we realized that that could damage our health, so recently we eat healthier and take supplements to stand on stage while maintaining our health.
JK: We have to increase our endurance.

Q. “We’ll go back to the (previous) topic, but what has changed about you (since debut)?”
V: When we debuted, we didn’t know anything, so we just worked hard at what we were told to do. Now we can express our own opinions and think about what to do next.
JK: Yeah, we’ve now come to think deeply about a lot of things. Rather than say this was a change, it seems that our attitude towards work has matured.
JM: Our feelings towards the stage and our fans have changed as well.
JH: Our growth as humans, in performance, and in how we interact with everyone. So many things have changed, but what has changed most is our internal feelings. It’s as if we’ve accepted and acknowledged that “we are professionals.” Things that are seen by the public and thing that aren’t.
JM: “We are professionals”?… Surely, the way we look has changed a lot too.
RM: When we were trainees, for all of us, our singing, dance, and fashion sense were not refined (lol). But now, I feel like we look a bit more like celebrities. 

Q. “So, from now on you will continue to grow as artists and continue to ‘Attack on Bangtan.’”
J: We will continue to attack!
RM
: We can’t stop now (lol).

HAPPY TRANS DAY OF VISIBILITY!!

This is one of my favorite times of the year. So I wanted to do a big post with a lot of my favorite (And some previously unseen) pictures. I’m so proud of who I am and I’m so happy to know that I have amazing followers to talk to if things ever go south.

I hope all of my trans friends can take a small moment to reflect on where we have come from.. this shit isn’t easy and we are incredibly strong people to have made it to another year. If you are struggling, or unable to be visible this year please hang in there/stay safe, and join us next year if you can :)

Prompt: We slept in the same bed for space reasons but now we’re just waking up and there’s something about your bleary eyes and mussed hair

Pairing: Space Husbands

Requested by anonymous, thank you! It was nice to write such a tender moment!


Always the first to admit when he made a mistake, always the first to admit he could have done better, Jim Kirk wasn’t prone to excessive pride. However, in this case, he *was* inordinately proud of himself. A whole night, he’d spent sharing a narrow bed with his tantalizingly oblivious first officer, and all night he had kept his hands respectfully to himself, even managed to drift off once he stopped thinking about how good Spock smelled and how warm he was, laying mere inches away. Close enough to touch, to hold, to curl up to, and yet Jim had refrained.

Well done, Captain.

Spock had offered to sleep on the floor, but it hadn’t been his fault that the outpost on this far-off moon didn’t have the resources to support a whole Starfleet landing party. They’d all had to share rooms, all had to share beds, and frankly the environmental controls in this place were astoundingly horrible. Spock could have frozen to death if he’d curled up in a meager blanket on the cool metal floor. Okay, maybe that was a bit dramatic, but he would have been uncomfortable.

YOI Fic Rec ROUND TWO

Hi friends. I put out a fic rec list a while back, and since then I’ve read a lot more, cried a lot more, laughed a lot more. So here’s another fic rec list for YOI! Most of these are different authors, in an attempt to spread the love. 

As before, it goes fewer bookmarks -> more bookmarks, in a very blatant attempt to give exposure.

THE SECOND LIST:

Resting pulse by cafecliche: I’m crying all the time, when I read this fic. It’s amusing and witty, while capturing the Victuuri characterizations perfectly, and also THERE IS PINING. This author’s other fic also address anxiety beautifully, so go forth. Go read all of the cafecliche. Do it for your wellbeing.

Kiss, You’re On Camera by Ashida: THIS IS SO SWEET. They’re at a baseball game, and Yuuri’s neighboring seat gets taken by an attractive stranger. God, it’s cute. Please check it out.

Stay the Night by Shadow_sensei: Your heart won’t be ready for the twist at the end of this. You could never be ready. This story is haunting and I mean that pun in all the best ways—it’s also got a beautiful dreamlike, fairytale (more like scary story) feel to most of it.

Shall We Skate (Through Time) by counterheist: counterheist has written MANY quality fics (also see BREAKING NEWS: Local Man Would Like to Date Other Local Man), most of which have me laughing. God, counterheist is great. This time travel AU also INVOLVES PHICHIT, my man, deals with consequences and, finally, provides great plot.

Yuri Plisetsky Saves the (Figure Skating) World by Dawn on ICE (Dawn_Blossom): Yuri Plisetsky’s interpretation of Viktor running off to “coach” Yuuri. It’s so canon compliant it HURTS—like hurts your stomach, because you’ll be laughing. Also the author is a darling.

A Heart of Paper Cranes by missmichellebelle: Besides being a fantastic human being, this author handles fluff, first time meetings, and anything your heart could desire with aplomb. I love this fic to pieces, and I love the sweet honesty of the Victuuri in it. *swoons*

Meet me halfway (in the future) by MissSpock:  I LOVE THIS FIC?? I love MissSpock, who I discovered and promptly blazed through all the fic of. This excellent time travel fic explores jealousy in a ironic but honest way.

Nuclear Hearts Club by butterbeerbitch:  The best of mutual pining and high school. I think I recc’d butterbeerbitch on my last list too, but I need you to listen to me. This fic has beautiful musings on childhood, which are giving me nostalgia in ways nothing else I’ve read has, and it is heartbreakingly gorgeous. This is poetry, it is prose, I cannot believe this is a real human being writing this. While they have stunning imagery, they also aren’t scared to make gross, hilarious comparisons. Please read this. Do it for me.

Like a design by jinlian: Canon-verse, and very sweet and humorous.

Life Unwoven by rougeandtonic:  TIME TRAVEL AU. WHERE YUURI TIME TRAVELS… BOTH WAYS. You get double the Victuuri, all of the pining, all of the miscommunication being healed, and just… oh. I love this fic. I think about it constantly. I’ve totally already screamed a lot about rougeandtonic on my Tumblr, but I. Do Not. Care. Like, this author probably hates me at this point, but I can’t help it.  Please read their work: kokoro no kaze is another of my favorites.

Lullaby of Birdland by Orchids_and_Fictional_Cities: Yuuri is a figure skater and Viktor is a jazz pianist. It doesn’t hesitate to deal with heavy topics, and the author knows. Their. Jazz. I’m drooling over this fic as we speak. Listen. I don’t understand how this has only 142 bookmarks at 7 chapters. I DON’T UNDERSTAND.

Meet Me by the River by c0rnfl0wer: do you want Slavic mythology and traditions handled masterfully and presented along with high quality love and pining? Then read this fic! Also, check out c0rnfl0wer’s other works, I can’t imagine how much research and effort he puts into his writing.

The Way to a Man’s Heart is Through His Stomach by futuresoon: I can’t figure this mystery fic out for the life of me. IT DOESN’T MATTER. Do you like mythical creatures? Do you like mysterious and handsome men? Do you like food? Check this out. This quirky, supernatural fic leaves you curious, and ironically hungry for more. Might be on a hiatus, as a warning, but word on the street is that it’s not abandoned.

I see the universe in your eyes by fangirlandiknowit: Oh god. From Yuuri’s POV, and it’s so descriptive, so emotional. This was written a while back, but I just discovered it and it is quality.

(offer me) that Deathless Death by melonbug: VIKTOR IS DEATH in this beautiful and moving fic that’s wrapped up in mystery and prose, but which I want to continue reading forever. There’s some phenomenal life observations in here, too.

Shut up and let me hold you by shysweetthing: I’ll never be over shysweething’s writing. I KNOW I recc’d this author on the last list, but you have to understand that it has brilliant dialogue, clearly understands YOI and episodes 11 and 12, and presents what was absent/only hinted at from them in a way that simultaneously soothes and breaks your heart.

These Frozen Nights by viciously: GEEZ so Yuuri can see ghosts, and Viktor doesn’t know… This fic is just ethereal and shocking, but still domestic and the Victuuri is sweet.

Taking the long way home by thankyouforexisting: Vicchan doesn’t die (so you already know this is gonna be good) and Yuuri doesn’t get drunk, so this fic explores how things change. It’s just… lovely. The dialogue is hilarious and magnificent, the AU is a great idea, and I’m loving this slow build.  NO, THANK YOU for existing, thankyouforexisting.

cover story by fan_nerd: Every frickin time I think back to my pre-AO3 account days, I remember a great fic and have to search for it. Every time I do, IT IS BY FAN_NERD. I love fan_nerd. This is a roommates AU, and is top notch.

Just Like a Stranger With the Weeds in Your Heart by MooseFeels: This ABO fic is just. Just. I tend to obsess over rhythm in my writing, and this fic has rhythm in excess. It just slides smoothly into your head, and astounds you.

Prove Me Wrong by homsantoft (tofsla): I started reading this and thought, oh, another soulmate AU, it could be decent. BUT I WAS A FOOL. This is not any old soulmate fic—it is beautifully handled, and I am unworthy of this and the one other fic by this author for YOI. PLEASE READ IT.

America goals by magnetic wave: Phichit is probably my favorite YOI character that isn’t Viktor or Yuuri, and this fic captures him so well. It also is a fic where you can see a perfect Phichit and Yuuri dynamic, without having to rely on Victuuri at all. I am in love.

Singularity by springsoldier (ladydaredevil):  I think I also recc’d this author on the last list. Do you care? I don’t care. You have to see this. It’s a STAR WARS AU. It’s so understated, and glorious, and hilarious. The Yurio is excellent, and the storyline is handled realistically. Finally, a Star Wars fic that shows you how a good Jedi deals with love.

A Lesson in Wanting by awesometinyhumanbeing:  I AM FANNING MYSELF. I love this fic! I love the trope of being in love with someone you’re married to, but being unable to deal with it. Reading the lines here just make me want to cry, and by the time things are finally resolved you will be incredibly invested in their happy ending.

Butt Stuff by Plumpie:  Yuuri gets an invasive… butt procedure. And Viktor is his nurse. Every moment in this is amusing.

At Home by SuggestiveScribe: SuggestiveScribe is pretty prolific, or was back a few months ago, and all of their works are breathtaking. Please check them out. This one’s fluffy, domestic despite the travel, and fun.

Katsuki Yuuri: Ascended Fanboy by Defiant-Dreams (DefiantDreams):  I’M LAUGHING SO HARD. Yuuri is a commentator, Viktor is still a skater, and everyone is exposed to their mutual and very obvious crushes in this great comedy.

Blackbird by sixpences: If you read nothing else I’ve recced to you but you still read this fic, I will be happy. This extremely well thought-out and planned fic showcases Yuuri and Viktor as intelligence operatives during WWII and the Cold War, and is brilliant in its complex portrayal of the issues at the time. Also, they’re ridiculously cute together even in heartbreaking circumstances. There is homophobia in-universe, but the handling of it is sublime and it’s there for a reason. I JUST UM. DEEP BREATHS EVERYBODY. THIS FIC IS SO GOOD.

Aria: Stammi Vicino, Non Te Ne Andare by exile_wrath:  Okay so listen. I am a very sensitive kid. This fic made me have a LOT OF FEELINGS, and is sublime. I will say there is definitely some violence, but it’s handled as well as this author handles everything, and the story as a whole transports you to this whole other Beauty-And-The-Beast but darker world! It’s very imaginative.

Constellations (Things You Left Unsaid) by DasWarSchonKaputt: I love Yuuko, and anytime she shows up in this fic I scream. This fic is just hilarious and deals with Yuuri’s feelings of inadequacy quite well. A+ role reversal AU!

Take Hold by Lavender Prose: Have I ever mentioned that I’m a complete sucker for soulmate AUs? I am, and this one is stunning and thorough in its worldbuilding. Also, check out the author’s tumblr for short but effective drabbles.

Kings in Couture by slightlied: I think a lot of people have also heard of this one, but I don’t care. The first two chapters are excellent, and accompanying drabbles for this universe can be found on the author’s tumblr, and they are also engaging. Just visit the author’s tumblr—it’s a lot of quality content of all kinds, and she’s bursting with ideas.

Now When Arrows Don’t Penetrate, Cupid Grabs the Pistol by ken_ichijjouji (dommific): AHAHAHA this fic, it’s funny. Also, it stars Phichit and almost every possible couple in YOI, so you know it’s going to be an exciting ride!

Worthwhile by surveycorpsjean: People like to watch Viktor suffer, but it’s always from pining. This fic handles the concept that Viktor can have major insecurities and struggles too, showing through heart-rending metaphor. And of course, it shows that Viktor can still deal with these things while having and deserving a loving relationship. Ah, homophobia warning here, but it’s a fic dealing with a lot of real world issues.

Twenty-Five Hours by 0lizzybennet0: Listen here. This is my favorite identity reveal fic. Somehow this author takes a plane ride (normally a terrible experience for all) and makes it into a rollercoaster of good times and cuddles and wrenching revelations. I love this Viktor, and this Yuuri, and the pacing is just right, as well as the Viktor/Yurio dynamic.

Beside the Dancing Sea by lily_winterwood and MapleTreeway: probably a fic that everybody knows, but it’s so well planned and such a great take on selkies that I can’t help but recommend it. There’s actual poetry in here, folks, as well as great prose—dream scenes, sweet romantic getaways in bays, CUTE SEALS. And, for a time, a mystery! Just… read this fic, if you’ve somehow missed it.

Centripetal force by braveten: Braveten is pretty well known, so you’re probably like “kiaronna why are you showing us this, of course we all know this fic” but this is my FAVORITE OF HER FICS and it’s going to get recommended, dang it. If you somehow missed this adorable masterpiece and like college fic, check it out. One of the chapters also made me hide in a bathroom for a while to deal with my freakout about emotions.

Unfortunately, because of life, I haven’t had as much time to explore the tag… or much time in general. so if you’re one of the works I love but I missed you, I’m sorry! 

Hopefully you readers will share my enjoyment of these amazing works!

Bts reaction to seeing you in a wedding dress:

Once his eyes fell on his beautiful girl, a rush of overwhelming emotions washed over him and he was speechless. Taking your hands into his and placing a soft kiss on your face, Seokjin will bash over how you just stole his breath.

Suga:

He is going to have his proud, happy gummy smile and you know it. Without a second’s hesitation he is going to walk up to you and say that he has never found anything in this world more gorgeous than you. 

J-hope:

We all know he will start crying at some point, and seeing you in that dress was his limit. “I am so happy to have you” he will sob, unable to control what you just caused to his heart. He told himself he will stay strong but the promise was short lived and now you are nursing a shook child like I know I am pretty just stop.

Rap Monster:

I need a moment here because Namjoon has his dimple smile on. His hands will gently snake at your waist and his lips will plant a full, passionate kiss on yours. it will be a moment to remember when he grows old, seeing his only girl more beautiful than ever will definitely have an impact on him.

Jimin:

I am stuck between thinking he’s either going to have a fluffy or a sexy reaction to it because personally, I think he’ll be displaying both sides. Because at first when you walked in with that dress he squirmed and giggled, clutched his face/heart, the whole nine yards. But when he walked closer to you he’s going to whisper something so hot in your ear or possible even suck on your neck because this boy can do both.

V/ Taehyung:

If you can’t guess already, you’re in for a bridal photoshoot session by photographer Kim Taehyung I mean this boy has to document it all, with the silly poses and the pretty ones, all. Obviously he will squeal and hold you as if you are a delicate little flower and now please let me die.

Jungkook: 

Originally posted by myloveseokjin

Grinning from ear to ear and shy mode activated. He will delicately touch your hair and face, his hands will run down your arms in a light motion. Jungkook will shyly tell you how beautiful you look, but he won’t make it long because one, he is too shy to get his tongue working properly and two, his brain forgot how to form coherent words. However, his eyes will never leave you alone and the smile will print on to his face, even for days after that,

Tears of Tenderness

He hadn’t loved her as he did now on that name day all of those years ago. He hadn’t even thought of loving her in such a way until many years after that first dance.

“Why?”

Tai lifted his head slowly to see Qrow dangerously close to him. Tai threw his head and back against the wall, only to find that he had no extra space to spare. He was scared of this man. Qrow frightened him. Something was unhinged in him…something that Summer Rose had kept closed off for years. No…something that only her death could set free.

“Why are you sorry?” Qrow asked once more, eyes continuing their piercing gaze. He spoke in such a raspy, matter-of-fact manner that it threw Tai off. He questioned his apologies as one would ask for a glass of water. When Qrow finally did speak, he thought it would be consumed with emotion and grief for Summer. Instead, he seemed almost barren of any feelings he once held. ‘Though,’ he thought, ‘that could change.’

Tai shook his head frantically, unsure of how to answer him.

“I keep hearing that phrase.” Qrow continued, sounding almost confused. “ ‘I’m sorry’. Why? What are you sorry for?”

Tai squirmed under his gaze, unsettled by his question. ‘What, are you stupid? Why wouldn’t we be sorry for your loss? For what happened?’. In an attempt to hide from Qrow’s intense eyes, he found an item he wasn’t sure still existed in this world.

On a coat rack right next to Qrow’s bed, hung a tattered, white cloak stained with blood.  He couldn’t control the tears once he realized how Qrow had most likely spent his nights staring at his partners- his wife’s signature cloak.
A subtle, eerie smile graced Qrow’s lips, bringing Tai’s vision back to stare into Qrow’s. “That? You’re sorry for that?”

Why was he being so nonchalant about it? That was Summer’s cloak for Gods’ sake! Did he feel nothing?

“Taiyang, let me ask you something. Does it ever cross your mind that you’re not supposed to have happiness?”

Jarred by the usage of his name, Tai scrambled. What kind of question was that? All he could do was stare back at Qrow, bewildered by such a question. Qrow picked up where he left off, seeming to be satisfied with silence as his answer.

“It’s crossed mine. I am the human avatar for disaster. My life has been on a path of mayhem and destruction. Until…” His eyes searched for a moment, looking over his shoulder to the cloak. Qrow’s mouth quivered into a grimace, unable to finish his thought aloud. Turning his head back to Tai, Qrow shook his head slightly. “That…that was stepping over my bounds.”

Tai raised his eye, unsure of what he meant. ‘That’? His eyes narrowed, trying to make sense of what the hell he was talking about. Quietly, Tai mumbled, “…Summer?”.

His smile only widened at the mention of her name; a long, disturbed smile. “You needn’t be sorry for something you didn’t do, Tai. You have to ask yourself, though…do you know what your sin is?” A low chuckle rumbled in his chest. “Do you know your sin, Tai? Because I know mine…


The rest of the dialogue is on AO3. It was too long to post here, so I just put an excerpt here. Please go and give it a read if you’d like. I’d highly recommend it if you want any context to what is happening and what will happen in future posts.

“Do you know your sin?”


Yup, Tai is the friend I spoke of in my last drawing. He is the one to get Qrow to start talking again, even if it is a little messy and incoherent.

Asking Permission

CS Genre: Future fic (follows Making a House a Home)

Killian woke with a smile on his lips, as he seemed to do nearly every morning anymore.  The sun shone brightly into their bedroom window, the smell of the sea heavy on the breeze that gently ruffled the gossamer curtains that hung before the slightly open French doors leading out to their balcony.  In the distance, Killian could hear the crash of the sea against the shore.  His bed was soft and warm, and he’d gotten an exemplary night’s sleep.

But nothing filled him with such joy as waking to Emma Swan in his arms, her fragrant, glorious hair tickling his nose, her soft body pressed against his, a gentle smile on her face.  It was overwhelming sometimes to remember that she was his, that she loved him, that she chose him as strongly and deeply as he chose her.

Life was good.  Life was near to perfect, and Killian had never been happier in his life.

From: me, To: myself

Hey, I’m back.
I just wanted to see how you were doing.
I see you are learning guitar?
Good, you’ll stop sooner than later.

So, what have you been up to?
Shooting photographs and
playing chess with grandma?
How about you go out with your friends?
Wait, thats right. You don’t have any.

But you know, I’m here for you.
If you ever get worried about anything,
or even lonely, I’ll be there.
After all, I do live inside of you.

What?
You don’t know what to call me yet?
Anxiety? Depression?
Honey, you can call me whatever you want.
You can even call me Bob if you wanted to.

Again, I’m always here.
Today, when you went out with that girl;
she means alot to you, doesn’t she?
Yes, I could feel myself getting weak around her.

She isn’t here and you’re alone at midnight.
I’m really strong and beautiful at the moment.
I really hope I stay this way so please, don’t do it.
Don’t call your mom or that ‘perfect’ girl.
Don’t send any snaps, dont message them.
I am in my glory, I am taking over you.

When I spread all over your body,
we’re gonna feel nothing but joy and pleasure.
At least I will.
You might feel pain, nausea, your heart
beating at 210 bpm, your lungs tearing apart,
leaving you unable to breathe.
And at that moment, I am unstoppable.
Your soul 'poof’, vanishes.

You’ll get the soul back, don’t worry.
You will get back to your normal life.
Playing chess with grandma,
shooting photographs.
Being, well, at least a little happy.

Deep down in you though, I still live.
I lerk in the shadows of your heart,
getting ready for my next visit.
See you next time, babe.

When you land, Thor lets go of you. Looking around, feeling out of place outside the stone building waiting for you to enter.

“Good luck.” Thor winks stepping back from you.

“Wait where are you going?” You ask confused and panicked.

“I’ll be back.” He winks and with a flash he’s gone.

Chapters: 1/??
Pairings: KarLena(Supercorp), SaLara(S.S. Endurance)
SUMMARY: “Are you happy?” Sam asks it’s sudden.

“I am,” Lena smiles, much brighter than she had before.

“Damn you’re in deep, LeeLoo,” Sam slaps her shoulder, Lena frowns, “you’re looking at her like I look at Lara. You’re a goner.”

She looks pensive for a moment, Sam continues with a smile.

“So is she,” She gestures to where Kara and Lara sit talking, Kara’s eyes flicker over and she waves with a grin, “she’s been unable to keep her eyes off of you for more than fifteen seconds. I counted.”

“I kind of guessed,” Lara informed, “you’re entitled to your privacy about it. You owe me nothing. Why would it blindside us?”

“Because she’s been spending the night at my place for the past month,” she blinked again, “it’s become a comfort I’d rather not lose with how things have been lately. I…asked her to stay again tonight when she’s off work.”

Lara nodded and considered the information.

“I won’t mind, nor will Sam, I’m certain she’ll enjoy it more than I will. Embarrassing you, I mean, in front of a romantic Partner,” the words brought a smile to Lena’s face again. It felt like a normal friendship for the small moment, a part of Lena’s past she finally got back that wasn’t tainted by the Luthor name.

“Alright, thank you for understanding,” Lara just shrugged, “shall we go finally?”

“Yes. I’d like to get home.”

Lena stopped only to inform Jess of her plans, asking her to notify her instantly the moment something came up. If it was important. After jess confirmed her plans, she led Lara through the building. Once in the elevator, she let herself fully breathe in relief. Lara elbowed her with a reassuring smile. Tonight would be fine, they’d get through it, tomorrow would be the real challenge, wouldn’t it?

burning questions

so when did ronan decide to kiss adam? was he planning on it when he was walking up the stairs, when he caught adam’s eye earlier? did he send adam on a hunt for aluminum foil just so they could be alone? because he was like “yeah go check my little bro’s room for it,” and who the hell keeps aluminum foil in their bedroom? is matthew just that flighty, that this is a real possibility? is that why there’s a fridge in the bathroom at monmouth, because the lynches have no idea where normal people keep their kitchen supplies? they are a family who grow chocolate-covered peanuts on trees. or did ronan improvise? was it a bit of both? was he sitting there turning the wheels of the car and turning over in his mind whether he should go for it? was it adam staring at his eyelashes yet again that convinced him? was it written on adam’s face how overwhelmed he was to be in a place like the barns? was ronan just so damn happy to have reconciled with declan and to have most of the people he loved in the place he loved most on his birthday that he felt like he could do anything? was he thinking of declan’s warning and all the terrifying shit coming their way and figuring it was now or never? will i ever get over what a lovely moment this was for ronan lynch, who was so full of shame and self-hatred just months ago that this would have been unthinkable, and then he gets the best first kiss anyone could have? or for adam parrish, who was just remembering a vile, painful memory about the people who should have always loved him regretting his existence, and then someone who does love him comes in and makes him feel like he’s full of light?

(the answer to the last two questions is no, no i will never get over it.)

Replacement

(To celebrate having 100 followers (thank you, lovely followers!), I wrote my take on Sherlock dealing with Molly’s engagement to Tom. Takes place during The Empty Hearse and The Sign of Three, but without Molly helping Sherlock with John’s stag night.)

Sherlock tossed and turned in bed as he tried to get his ever-racing mind to Shut. The. Hell. Up. It was the night of his welcome home party, and images from the gathering kept playing over and over in his head.

Well, certain images. Alright, one image. The image of Molly Hooper, the best pathologist he’d ever met and one of a handful (alright, a large handful) of people who had kept his not-dead secret. Molly Hooper, and the man she had promised to marry.

He looks just like me. How can she say she’s ‘moved on’ when he looks just like me? It’s like I’ve been replaced with a bad knock-off. A pale imitation. A stand-in.

Sherlock’s eyes shot open. A stand-in. An understudy. A seat filler. Temporary. That’s it! She was just keeping him around until I came back. He was there to remind her of what she was missing. Now that I’ve returned, she can send him on his way, if she hasn’t already.

Galvanized, he grabbed his mobile from the nightstand.

1:26a I know what you’re doing, Molly. SH

1:29a No, I really don’t think you do, Sherlock. Molly

1:30a Of course I do – you’re using Tim as a temporary substitute for me. SH

1:33a I’m what? I’m not doing anything of the sort, believe me, and his name is Tom. Molly

Sherlock frowned at the glowing display of his mobile, the only source of light in the room.

1:34a Tim, Tom, what difference does it make? SH

1:37a The difference is that I’m shagging him right now. Molly

Oh… Sherlock didn’t realize until that moment exactly how much a heart could sink.

1:38a My apologies. I won’t bother you again tonight. SH

He turned off his phone and tried again to sleep, deliberately not thinking about Molly shagging her fiancé. Consequentially, he didn’t see her response until the next morning.

2:41a He’s asleep. Sherlock, what the hell was that about? Molly

Not knowing how else to respond, he decided to lie.

10:16a I had too much to drink last night, please forget everything. I already have. SH


Deciding he needed to stay out of Molly and Tim … no, Tom’s way, Sherlock stopped all personal contact with Molly. He only saw her at Bart’s and he kept all conversations there strictly business. No compliments to get her to do what he wanted (though her skin is glowing and very soft-looking these days), no taking her up on her offers to get him coffee (she’s always so thoughtful), no asking her about Tom (What does he have that I don’t?).

That went splendidly (in his eyes) for a week, then Molly cornered him on the first-floor landing of 221 just as he was going down to hail a cab to a crime scene. What surprised Sherlock wasn’t Molly’s presence, as he’d been half-expecting, half-hoping she’d confront him. No, what surprised him was the fact that Molly wasn’t even angry.

“What’s wrong, Sherlock?” she asked softly, her big (beautiful) brown eyes full of concern. “Is it John? The work? Something’s bothering you and I need to know what.”

“You really don’t know?” he asked quietly.

“We’re friends. At least, I thought we were. But you’ve barely said a word to me since…” She trailed off, her eyes widening in realization. “Oh, this is about Tom.”

“I…” I love you. I’ve finally realized it and I’m an idiot, a complete and utter idiot, for letting you get away. “I just want you to be happy, Molly.” He looked deep into her eyes. “Are you happy?”

She gazed back at him in silence for a moment, then shook her head a bit. “Oh, um, yes, I am. Tim and I are very happy.”

Sherlock raised an eyebrow, unable to hide his amusement. “Tim?”

Molly’s face flushed. “Tom! I meant Tom, of course…” She quickly turned away. “I should go. It was nice seeing you, Sherlock.” She left without another word.


Sherlock spent the next few months pretending everything between him and Molly was just like it was before Reichenbach, but every time he saw Molly and Tom together, he wanted to swoop in, deduce Tom to tears, and ride off with Molly into the proverbial sunset. Thankfully, planning John and Mary’s wedding took up quite a bit of his thoughts.

The day of the wedding dawned bright and clear. Sherlock successfully kept Molly out of his thoughts all day, then he saw her and Tom kissing at the reception. He felt his heart sink to his shoes but decided to soldier on for John’s sake.

During his best man’s speech, Sherlock was utterly dumbfounded at Tom, no, Meat Dagger’s response to the “perfect crime.” How can Molly still want to marry such an idiot? He may look like me, vaguely, but otherwise he is nothing like me.

As he played the piece he’d written for John and Mary, he closed his eyes and wondered what it would be like to waltz with Molly at their own wedding. After telling the new Mr. and Mrs. Watson their good news and finding no one to dance with, Sherlock decided the best thing to do was leave early.

He donned his Belstaff and was halfway to the parking lot when he heard Molly’s voice.

“Sherlock!”

He turned just as she caught up to him, a cream-colored shawl and her purse in her hands.

“If you’re leaving, then I’m leaving too,” she said.

Sherlock couldn’t believe his ears. “What … what about Tom?”

“Tom who?” she asked, holding up her left hand, the ring finger now bare.

Sherlock couldn’t believe his luck. “Coffee?” he asked, offering her his arm.

“Just what I was going to suggest,” she replied, grinning, as she took it.

AO3, Fanfiction.net

anonymous asked:

You mentioned that you thought that you didn't think James could have been caught Levicorpusing Snape because he was later made HeadBoy. But how do reconcile that with the fact that everyone was Levicorpusing everyone else all the live long day at that point in time? Everyone did it. Quote: “There were a few months in my fifth year when you couldn’t move for being hoisted into the air by your ankle.”

No, I didn’t.

I discussed, at length, my reasons for believing that it was unlikely that anyone prevented James from stripping Snape.  The pertinent quotes are:

However, if I am absolutely honest, canon makes it almost impossible to construct a reading where Snape escapes exposure.

So, the power lies with James - and if he was willing to semi-expose Snape as a ‘laugh’, it seems unlikely that he’s going to stop at the same if he’s now ‘furious’.

Sadly, I think he was exposed.   

After explaining my stance, I then said:

I also can’t imagine a teacher intervened, because would any of the staff really have made James Head Boy after such an incident?

I think it is very clear that I am discussing James stripping Snape.  We, along with Harry, hear James say, “Who wants to see me take off Snivelly’s pants?”

That’s not just a simple Leivcorpus between friends.  It’s not a laugh like it is between Harry and Ron.  It’s being used in a very nasty way, and James has just publicly threatened to expose another student’s genitals.

That is what I was talking about.

If you’re the same anon as the previous message, it might be more fruitful for you to spend your time reading someone else’s blog instead of mine.  It seems that you’re unable to comprehend the posts that I am making, and although I am quite patient and happy to help if someone is genuinely confused, I am far too short on time at the moment to continue explaining simple points at length.

I’m also very clearly a pro-Snape blog; if that’s not a reading you’re interested in, then you won’t get any enjoyment out of my posts.  You might have a much happier day reading a pro-Marauders set of blogs instead; there’s lots out there - please don’t feel you have to wade through a pro-Snape blog if it’s a stance not to your taste.
