i can cross that one off

hdreaper  asked:

This has to be one of the best blogs ever. Of all time. Can you think up how the horsemen would react to their partner being a badass out of nowhere? Like one minute "I wouldn't hurt a fly" the next "yes I killed the demon with his own horns"

Was that an RVB reference? :D

Death: His eyebrows would shoot up so violently he nearly knocks his mask clean off. He’d been led to believe you were one of the most docile creatures he’d ever met. “Beware the quiet ones.” He murmurs appraisingly, crossing his arms and tapping his foot as though waiting for an explanation. 

War: If you ever thought that Horsemen were incapable of being starstruck, you’d be dead wrong. His eyes widen in astonishment. Suddenly, you’re looking more and more capable of being his sparring partner. 

Strife: He lets out a low, impressed whistle. He’s grinning at you knowingly, and claps in a slow applause. “Nice. Your first kill. I’m so proud!!” He brags to everyone about how much of a badass you are now because of ‘him’. 

Fury: “Well, well, well.” She rests her hands on her hips and cocks them to one side. “It would seem we have dark horse in our midst.” She raises an eyebrow at you and smirks. You’re suddenly under the distinct impression that she knew you weren’t as passive as you seemed.

feettootie: First of all TAURUS UNITE! We shall Rise Up and DES—um, sorry, later for that.  :-)  I’m hoping for a name…who’s somebody we don’t expect to be hot?

Oh, friend.

Okay, one time Colin Morgan and I needed to get past each other in one of the fuck-off, labyrinthian, behind-the-scenes hallways every con seems to have for some reason. So I smile all polite-like as you do, and he smiles back which is already a bit of a shock because the last time I saw this dude was in the Merlin pilot episode and he was a gangly NERD:

Instead I’m faced with THIS:

Look at those buttons! Look at them! The only reason you can’t hear their cries for help is I’m groaning louder!

Anyway, here I am crossing paths with this six-foot, blue-eyed, British wet dream and I don’t know exactly what my face does but it must be something because his smile goes sort of playfully knowing—the utter bastard—and then—then—the fucker winks at me. 

I shit you not I nearly fell over.

And that’s the story of how I very nearly swooned like a victorian maiden over an actor whose shows I don’t even watch.

professionalpenthief  asked:

where did ginaxrosa shipping start? and why? (not that i am against it but i just... never considered!?! it)

gina x rosa shipping started because Gina is the driving force behind 80% of Rosa’s laughs and 98% of Rosa’s smiles.

And when Rosa smiles because of Gina-related reasons, there’s a softer touch to those smiles, and they’re I-can’t-help-but-smile smiles.

And Gina can get Rosa to laugh her head off. Big, genuine laughs that make Rosa’s head tilt up. Like when Gina tossed a stapler at Charles (2x22 cold open)

Gina and Rosa are different people but have things in common that draw them to each other. Like how they’re both people you don’t want to cross. Gina and Rosa are scary and you don’t want to mess with them. Gina uses her words and spirit, Rosa gives you one look and you know she could beat you up and you’ll thank her.

This scariness that Rosa and Gina have are what makes them so evenly matched. They won’t back down from a fight, ever, but weirdly you see them letting each other get away with stuff that they’d castrate someone else for.

For example, remember when Rosa almost murdered Hitchcock and Scully because they stole her moose tracks ice cream????

Guess what happened in thanksgiving episode 1x10. It’s not blatantly obvious, but Gina’s holding (and assumably, drinking) coffee from a cup clearly labeled ‘ROSA’. And Rosa does nothing.

Gina and Rosa are also shown to have a special, deeper kind of bond that we see through several (albeit occasionally subtle) instances.

Whenever Gina’s being Gina- see 1x16 and 2x07, Rosa’s being made to babysit and stop her from freaking people out/stealing/talking to people at parties. This could mean one or even both of two things:

1) Only Rosa can handle Gina because everyone else is too weak to go against her- ergo they are evenly matched

2) People know that Rosa’s the person Gina will most likely listen to- alluding to their deeper connection and understanding of each other

Another show of Gina and Rosa’s deeper connection is how they’re often on the same side. They like to judge, make fun of, and bully people together. They also seem to enjoy standing/sitting next to each other, (sometimes way too close more than they need to be eg. charges and specs 1x22) both of them crossing their arms (mirroring each other, which is like a couple thing/i’m-attracted-to-you thing)

They’ve also teamed up to solve Holt’s island riddle together and protested against turkey murder together. They also locked amy in the boot of a car- and walked off together laughing

They also really care about each other, for example when Rosa was being all guilty knowing she was prob going to have to shoot Charles down in 1x13 and hiding Gina NOTICED that Rosa was hiding away and even asked her why with a pretty confused/concerned looking face. Also, when Rosa got sick Gina prepared a pretty elaborate care package for her so she would get well (and please Gina who you tryna play here acting like Terry paid u/if he really did pay u pls putting the care package together prob took more money than the $20 you claimed Terry gave you)

AND THEN Rosa proceeded to smile so widely all touched by what Gina did for her!!!

And Gina put Rosa in her WILL if that doesn’t say “you’re important to me” idk what is. And the fact that those two jaguars making love is prob a representation of them is something else altogether

Rosa cares about Gina too, duh. But Rosa’s care comes more in the form of protectiveness, like when she placed her arm behind Gina ensuring she got out of the room safely before Rosa when the turkey got loose and tried to attack them. Rosa also put in a lot of security measures in place when Gina got robbed (although amy was involved too and Holt told them Gina was scared, but lbr Rosa’s protect-gina instincts got turned on full blast when she found out Gina was scared did you hear the conviction in her voice when she said “we are”????)

Speaking of the turkey, Gina and Rosa get each other. When they protested against the turkey murder and Rosa saw Gina about to flip everyone off she joined right in. They know each other pretty well too. Gina knows Rosa’s likes (old movies, someone called 'the vulture’, etc.) and dislikes, and she can very accurately interpret what a Rosa action means. (Like when Rosa said 'bye’ to Marcus)

Also, Gina and Rosa seem to show interest in each other.

Like when Gina accidentally texted “sup Rosa” to Amy and that was in 2009 when she first joined the nine nine as civilian administrator so obviously Gina was trying to hit on Rosa and has prob been flirting with Rosa for eight years.

Part of their interest in each other includes attraction of course. In the episode where they let Gina interrogate a perp, Rosa looks overly interested in watching Gina forcefully question the perp and even when captain Holt wants to stop Gina Rosa doesn’t want it to stop. Also when Rosa unveils her sword in 3x23 as torture equipment Gina looks very turned on no offense

Also Gina is very obviously jealous of Adrian. She only started acting hostile towards him after Rosa started dating him, and please be reminded that this is the same Gina that didn’t even put her phone down when Adrian held a knife to Jake, her childhood bestie and oldest friend’s throat.

But Adrian dates Rosa and suddenly it’s “screw you adrian you’re not allowed to stay at Charles’s house” and “oh yeah ur right Adrian listen to the universe you should totally not marry Rosa!!” And the day before/on the day he was supposed to marry Rosa Gina doesn’t even let Adrian have candy wow Rude

After Rosa’s bachelorette party, Gina elopes with some cashier (prob a lady) and it’s likely that she was trying to escape from reality bc running away with someone you just met (although Gina was drunk) is not something you do if you’re super happy your friend is engaged, no matter how drunk you are, and no matter how Gina you are

Finally: Babylon

Dude if “has secret bathroom they don’t tell anyone about that they work super hard on to make nice” doesn’t scream “domESTIC” to you then you’re a lost cause

(Also Rosa bringing Gina to Babylon for the first time bc Gina got sick is another example of how Rosa cares about Gina!!!)

Besides the implications of sharing a secret private place, Gina has a very violent reaction when Rosa wants to tell Boyle about Babylon (and Rosa asking Gina about it beforehand is like- wife asking wife for permission to bring friend over to house), and wants to keep it a private thing between the both of them

“Babylon’s our secret place! It’s the best thing in my life.” -if this doesn’t touch u even a little idk what will

I get why some people might not ship gina x rosa just by watching the show. Some of this stuff is put across in pretty subtle ways, and the things they say/know about each other aren’t always treated as a big deal by the show/are throwaway lines. Some things you see between Gina and Rosa like the coffee thing and the putting hand on back thing is something you can only catch by pausing the episode at the right time. Also many Rosa laughs/smiles in response to something Gina does or says is usually in the background, and you may not catch it if you aren’t paying attention to the squad’s reactions to each other

Are we grasping for straws when we ship gina x rosa? No we r not they r perfect but also the show needs to give us more gina x rosa because this is a ship that has so much potential

Chelsea Peretti and Stephanie Beatriz seem to be putting in effort to make gina x rosa work with their acting so not shipping it = ur not appreciating Stephanie taking the effort to smile so tenderly at stuff Chelsea says as Gina

AND Jake/Amy are a pretty stable couple now, so it’s definitely in your interest to start devoting your heart to gina x rosa too!! Why let one ship slay you when you can let two ships slay you

TL;DR- Gina and Rosa would make the perfect power couple that rules over the Nine-Nine which can nicely balance out cinnamon roll couple Jake and Amy! Sign up to be a gina x rosa shipper today!! All we want in exchange is your soul!!

  • Me: It's always so weird swapping from a sorcerer back to a fighter, because there's nothing to cross off. There isn't a limited number of hits I can make with my rapier, I can just fucking hit the thing all day.
  • Steve: When I played a fighter, I used to make the joke that, alright, I'm making my spell list for today: Stab, Cut, Slice.
  • DM: Dagger, hammer...
  • Steve: Yeah, exactly. I cast Sword on it.
  • Doug: Rain of Heavy Blunt Objects.
  • Steve: I seriously made a character like that one time.
  • Me: What, who cast Rain of Heavy Blunt Objects and then just threw marbles at people?
  • Doug: He was a dwarf, wasn't he?
  • Steve: Yeah. He would just make up random names and then hit people. That was one of my favorite characters, too.
  • Me: It's a dwarf with delusions of casting, or at least who likes to mock casters all the time?
  • Steve: And also he hated real spellcasters. That was the trait that I picked: he hated magic.
  • Me: So was anybody in his party magical?
  • Steve: Yeah.
  • Me: Was he the only non-magical entity?
  • Steve: Pretty much.

I think one of the most exciting updates is the furniture moving process!! loved the controls of HHD moving, and while there are differences in the updates and HHD, overall it’s great. I love being able to see what I can and can’t put stuff on top of (FINALLY get to put stuff on that kitchen island!!) and I don’t think the astro TV was stackable before? maybe I’m wrong I don’t remember off the top of my head but I love finding new stuff to stack in my home

'Star Trek: Discovery' Delayed Again as Spock's Father Is Cast
The CBS All Access series will no longer debut in May.

ITEM ONE: I really liked Ben Cross’s performance in the Kelvin timeline Star Trek, but hot damn does this James Frain dude look like Sarek. Here’s a picture of him from the Fox Batman AU Fanfic show Gotham to help bolster this claim.

ITEM TWO: Dammit, guys, straighten your shit out. And get it off this CBS platform and onto something that people who aren’t NCIS addicts have. (Or at least let me buy a season pass on Amazon. Can that be a thing?)

ITEM THREE: Is this the first time we’ve had the same character at roughly the same age played by three different actors in the franchise? It is, isn’t it?

Have you ever stopped to wonder what the statistical probability was of us meeting one another? I say ‘meeting’ and not ‘falling in love’ because I know without a shadow of a doubt I could never have gotten to know you under any circumstances and NOT fallen in love with you… that is the one thing I know without question is an absolute certainty. I have never in my life been so drawn to a person… I have never felt such an intense connection with anyone as I did with you.
But when you stop to consider the millions of variables that needed to fall in line for us to cross paths, you begin to realize that the chances of us entering each other’s lives was so incredibly small… surely that must have a meaning? How can that not mean something to you!? It is something that could so easily have been thrown off by the smallest factor; surely that’s more than pure chance!
Don’t get me wrong – I’m not bitter about it all… I’m thankful for the time we had together and I’m slowly beginning to accept that it’s over. I’m grateful I had the chance to get to know you and the chance to have been loved by you… but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t secretly wish for another one. But wishing for something isn’t the same as believing it’s possible, so I’m not holding my breath anymore.
I mean, think about it… What are the chances that the universe gives a second chance at someone as rare and wonderful as you…?

Request: Reader and Finn are best friends and are both at Enzo’s house party, Finn gets drunk so reader drives them to her apartment where drunk Finn confesses his feelings for her. He wakes up the next day and reader asks about what he confessed the night before 

A/N: This is based off of these lyrics:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2qq4UQL-MA

“Cause you’re feeling all tipsy
It’s game over when you cross that line
I lose every time – When you start drinking
Thats when you get to thinking of
Swinging right back into my arms.”

As well as these: 

“You can tell when I’m a little bit lonely
I know myself and I’m giving in slowly.”

Tonight was one of the most fun events ever hosted. Every now and then, Enzo hosted the most amazing house party that featured everything. People you adored, drinking, amazement, and it offered one of the best times to place in a memory book. Bayley and Sasha approached you, smiles on their faces. “We’ve missed you, (Y/N)!” Bayley squealed, wrapping her arms around your neck tightly. You hugged her back, Sasha joining in. “You know I’ve missed you girls as well.” You chuckled, watching as Enzo made his way over to you.

“There’s the beauty of the night.” He smiled, taking your hand and twirling you around in a circle. You blushed, wrapping an arm around your waist. “Hence why you’ve always been my favorite.” You winked, causing Enzo to laugh. You turned the corner to see the backyard full of people. Laughter was heard, conversations being exchanged amongst everyone.

“(Y/N)!” Cass exclaimed, smiling wide. You giggled, hugging him. “Cass!” You returned in a similar voice. You felt Sasha and Bayley back by your side. “Your best-friend in all the world is by the bar.” Bayley pushed you slightly, making you chuckle. Straight ahead you saw him. He had a drink in his hand, chatting with Sami. “Best-friend!” You yelled, making your way over to him. Finn turned his head at the sound of your voice, a large smile spreading across his face.

“Best-friend!” He laughed, standing up, but he stumbled slightly. You grabbed a hold of him, smirking. “Someone’s having fun with their drinking, eh?” You hugged him tightly.  “I’m Irish. I can handle it.” Finn squinted his eyes at you. You felt his arms snake around you, hugging you tightly. His chin rested on the top of your head as you both turned to face Sami. “We were just talking about you, (Y/N).” He chuckled.

“I hope good things?” You peered up at Finn. He smiled, nodding his head “Always. There’s not a bad thing to be said about you, love.” He gently said, taking his shot glass back and downing the alcohol contained inside. He slammed the glass back down on the table as Sami grabbed the bottle of Finn’s favorite, pouring him another shot. “You are the man.” Finn chuckled, taking the glass.

“How are you?” Finn turned his attention onto you. The two of you let each other go as Sami poured you a drink. “I’ve been fine. Glad to be coming back to the ring in the next week.” You had suffered from a slight sprained ankle that left you out for the last two weeks, but thankfully it wasn’t too major.

Finn nodded, hearing you out. “We’ve all missed you. Especially me.” He smirked, making you roll your eyes. “You’re such a charmer, Bálor.” You giggled to yourself. You watched closely as Finn grabbed the shot glass and downed the next round. “How much have you drank already?” You questioned, staring at the empty glass. When you looked into Finn’s eyes, you noticed a slight haze. You’ve been around him long enough to know when enough was enough. “Uh… Three?” Finn mumbled, counting on his fingers. You turned to stare at Sami who shook his head.

“That shot was his seventh one. Not to mention he’s already had a few mixed drinks earlier when he first got here.” You stared at Finn, a sigh leaving from you. “He had a beer, too.” Kevin came up, resting his hand on Finn’s shoulder, nearly startling him. “I haven’t seen him drink this much in a long time.” He added, looking at you.

“Finn, you need to slow down, sweetie.” You looked up at him. He shook his head. “I’m fine, love. Trust me.” He smirked, walking away. You watched as he stumbled with each step he took. You and Sami exchanged a glance. “If he asks for anything, deny him. That shot you gave him - Let that be his last.” You pointed at his friend. Sami nodded, holding his hands up. You rushed after Finn, making sure he didn’t try anything else. 

You grabbed a hold of his arm, seeing as how he was off balanced. “I’m dizzy.” He chuckled. “But I feel so light.” You looked up at him. “Finn, you’re drunk.” You announced, causing his blue eyes to grow wide. “Drunk? Nooooo,” He trailed off, laughing at himself. You guided him inside the house away from the crowd. A few people were in the kitchen talking, so you made a B-line for the living room. The party would be over in the next hour, but you were contemplating just taking Finn home with you for the night to make sure he was okay.

Finn’s head rested on your shoulder as his eyes closed. Alcohol coated his breath, a strong mixture of the shots and whatever he had earlier. Bayley walked in to see the situation, her eyes widening. “Is he seriously drunk?” She asked. You nodded, biting your bottom lip. She covered her mouth to stifle a laugh. Finn’s eyes were closed, a laugh escaping from his mouth. “You’re really gorgeous, (Y/N)…” He mumbled. You sighed, running your fingers through his hair. “Come on, I think you and I are going to head home.” You stood up. Bayley aided you by getting on Finn’s other side, throwing his arm around her shoulder. You both hung onto his sides as you two stared to walk.

“Leaving already?” Enzo questioned, watching as you three made your way to the door. “Finn is drunk.” You chuckled. “I think his party time is over.”

“Do you want me to take him home?” Kevin asked, walking out. You shook your head. “I’ll take him back to my place. Can one of you bring his car over?” You reached into Finn’s pocket quickly and chucked Kevin the keys. Sami rushed over to you guys and grabbed Finn, letting you and Bayley out from under him. “Thanks, Sami.” You smiled at him, walking over to your car.

Sami helped get Finn into the passenger’s seat, his laughter becoming louder. You couldn’t help but chuckle at this scene. “Call me tomorrow. He’s going to have a massive hangover.” Bayley tapped your shoulder. You laughed, nodding. You got into the driver’s seat and started your car. You drove off, Finn staring immensely out of the window.

“You are so beautiful.” Finn whispered, indicating you. “Honey, I think the alcohol is speaking for you.” You kept your eyes on the road. Fifteen minutes later you arrived at your place. You walked over to the passenger’s seat and helped Finn out. He threw an arm over your shoulder as you made your way inside your apartment. “Where are we?” He questioned. “My place.” You responded, unlocking the door. Once inside, you turned on the lights and led Finn into the living room.

You sat him down, watching as his head fell back against the back of the couch. “Let’s get this jacket off of you, alright, Finn?” You said calmly, lifting his arm. He helped you by pulling his arm out of the sleeve. When you got to his right arm, you were extra careful due to the surgery three months ago. You didn’t want to do anything wrong just in case. Finn easily slipped his arm out once again, leaving him in his white t-shirt.

“Can you get this off?” You asked. He nodded, sitting up far enough. He lazily pulled the shirt over his head and tossed it to the side. He looked up at you, his eyes changing. He took his hand and rested it on the side of your cheek, staring deeply into your eyes. You stared at him, your breath hitching in your throat. 

“Slip the Vans off.” You broke the stare. Finn didn’t take his eyes off of you as he kicked off his Vans. All he was left in was his black jeans. His hair was still fixed so nicely and he had the tenderest touch even when he was drunk. “I need to tell you something that’s been on my mind for months.” Finn mumbled, stroking your cheek gently with his thumb.

“What?” You asked. Finn smirked, a half smile showing. “You mean everything to me.” He whispered. “I mean it… You’re beautiful… Breathtaking. Everything I’ve ever wanted and more.” You could feel your heart racing faster. “Finn, I,” - Finn shushed you by placing his index finger on the center of your lips. “(Y/N), I’m in love with you.” He mumbled. “Hopelessly… Helplessly… Love at first sight? Whichever came first, I knew it.”

You knew this was the alcohol talking. Finn was your best-friend and you knew he didn’t feel this way about you or else he would’ve already spoken up about it. Sure, he was a shy guy, but that didn’t mean anything. You two were closer than ever. He would’ve said something by now. 

“Finn, why don’t you try to get some sleep? I’ll be right back.” You quickly got up and made your way into your bedroom. You grabbed a blanket and walked back downstairs to see Finn sitting in the same position that you left him in. “Here,” You helped him lay down. You placed a pillow behind his head, watching as he adjusted himself so he was comfortable. You threw the cover over him and turned around. 

“Love,” He reached out and grasped your hand before you walked away. “Yes, Finn?” You questioned, slowly turning around. “S-Stay with me.” He slurred. “I don’t want to be alone.” You sighed, nodding. “Let me go change and I’ll be back.” You went upstairs and pulled off your clothes. You had grabbed Finn’s white t-shirt on the way up and it began to tempt you tremendously. You’ve worn his shirts before… Why not do it again?

You pulled the shirt over your head and pulled on a pair of shorts. When you got back down to Finn, he was still wide away even though his eyes were begging for sleep. A small hiccup left him, causing him to laugh at himself. “You’re back.” He smirked, turning to look at you. “C’mon, inside” He tapped the left side of the couch. You sighed, climbing over his body. You settled yourself on the inside of the couch, your side nuzzled into his. You couldn’t help but keep your hands to yourself for just a moment until Finn wrapped his left arm around you. “Just hold me.” He whispered. You placed an arm around his waist, your head resting directly on his chest, the sound of his heartbeat being the only thing you heard.

And just like that, Finn was out of it. His head rested on top of yours. Before you knew it, you had fallen into a deep slumber as well

________

When morning came, you woke up to the sun shining in through the windows. You looked around, noticing that you were still wrapped in Finn’s arms, his head turned to the side. You moved slightly which made Finn stir. You wondered just what time it was. Yawning, you felt the Irish man move around.

He grumbled something under his breath, something that was inaudible. “(Y/N)?” He questioned, seeing how you two were situated. “W-What happened last night?” He asked, rubbing his face with his right hand. Somehow he never once managed to lift that left arm off of you.

“You got drunk last night so I brought you back to my place.” You answered. Finn groaned. “I knew I shouldn’t have drank. Something told me not to.” He chuckled softly. What he said last night was still haunting you. You wanted to know so badly if there was any truth behind it.

“Finn?” You mumbled. “Yes, love?” He replied seconds later. “Do you remember what you told me last night?” You questioned, raising your head off of his chest. Finn bit down on his bottom lip, nodding quickly. “What?” You pushed him.

“I went ahead and told you I loved you.” You felt your heart skip a beat. “Y-You meant it? It wasn’t the alcohol talking?” 

Finn shook his head. “No way… (Y/N), I really do love you. I don’t want us to be on a friend basis anymore. You’re my best-friend, yeah, but I love you.” He smiled warmly at you. You grinned widely. “Finn, I-I love you, too.” You whispered, feeling different about saying it. It was as if a weight was lifted off your shoulders.

You felt Finn nuzzle closer to you. You turned your head up to stare at him, smiling at him. “I really do love you.” You giggled.

“I really do love you, too.” Finn chuckled, kissing your lips tenderly.

Caught In The Act

Prompt: Reader is in the FBI and engaged to Spencer Reid,when Dean and Sam Winchester show up at their door, impersonating agents. (Criminal Minds and SPN Crossover!)

————–

Laughing at the failures in the movie, you and Spencer were interrupted by a doorbell. You kissed him on the lips quickly and pulled your legs off of his lap.

“I’ll get it,” you informed as you crossed the living room to the front door. You checked the peephole and saw two men in suits. Picking up your gun from the front door table and stuffing it in the back of your jeans, you opened the door.

“Hi, can I help you?” you asked nicely.

“Yeah, we’re wondering if you’re close with the woman across the street,” the shorter, incredibly attractive one asked. Your profiling skills kicked into overdrive the moment he started talking. He had no problem in the confidence area, he spoke with conviction, held eye contact, and didn’t waver in tone. The way he moved near the taller one suggested long time friends, but there was another air about it, you considered them closer, possibly brothers.

Sunday Seven

1) I worked enough last pay period that my paycheck was larger than when I made $9.50 more per hour, and I’m on track to do it again. I worked almost 8 hours yesterday, on top of my regular work week.

2) It’s a good thing, because we are still so far behind from when I was laid off after my heart attack. And the two kids in college is killing us, despite all the scholarships they got. Fingers crossed. So far they get to stay.

3) I slept in until 9:56 this morning. I know; I can’t believe it either.

4) I made Nick a sausage and egg muffin and coffee for breakfast, and made Sophia quesadillas. She actually requested corn instead of flour. I’m the only one in the family who prefers corn, so that tickled me for some reason.

5) I am finally cleaning my long neglected kitchen and listening to the Talking Heads.. There’s something soothing about doing dishes in hot soapy water, and the snowflake Pyrex dishes I thrifted years ago still make me happy.

6) Now I’m going to make tuna quesadillas for myself and watch British mysteries with Sophia. When she asks to hang out with me, I can’t say no.

7) I think I was tagged a few times, but I am so far behind on Tumblr, it’s ridiculous. I will try to catch up, but no promises. I miss your faces, your heartfelt words, and your witticisms.

1.12.17 Potential Spontaneity (8/100 days of productivity)

Today was figurative Friday. I don’t have any classes tomorrow but I had four classes today. It was a pretty simple day. I feel asleep in the middle of my homework reading of The Great Gatsby last night, so I had to use my between-class-time to speed read. 

The most exciting part about today is that one of my friends spontaneously decided to plan a trip to Washington DC this weekend! Me and three other people are (hopefully) going. I’ve never been to DC and I’m also not a spontaneous person, so this would be a really cool experience for me. I just have to okay it with work and make sure I can take off, but my fingers are crossed!

Congrats

anonymous asked:

Hello, before I start I just want to say, if this ask offends or hurt anyone I'm really sorry and it was not my intention. My question is, how can a aro/ace person be in a relationship, if you're Aromantic you don't desire romantic bonds so how do it work? I am curious since I have not heard of Aromantic people being in relationships. I would be very interested so can get to know the ace/aro spect more (I'm ace myself) Again, sorry if you think this is to annoy or hurt anyone, it's truly not.

The thing to remember here is that “relationship” is a broad word that can describe many possible ways of interacting with other people. As an experiment, try making a list of the 10-15 closest people in your life–the ones you see most often, talk to most often, feel safest and happiest with. Now cross off anyone who you are romantically involved with. There are still people on the list, right? There are still people with whom you have intimate and loving non-romantic relationships, with whom you spend a lot of time, who enrich your life and probably who you’d like to keep around for a long time, if not forever. It’s exactly the same for aromantic folks. 

Alloromantic people tend to feel romance very strongly, and as a result we prioritize our romantic relationships in our lives, but even allorom people still have a variety of close and important relationships. This is even more evident for aromantic people, who do not have romantic relationships to prioritize. But they still have other types of relationships, and many of them find one or more such relationships that they want to treat with the same kind of devotion that we would treat our romantic relationships–we usually call these partnerships queerplatonic or quasiplatonic, as they appear from the outside to be similar to romantic relationships but are actually based on alterous or platonic affection.

It’s worth noting that there are also plenty of aros who don’t have any interest in QPPs and that’s fine–even without them, there are still many types of deeply rewarding relationships on offer.

But that’s the quick n dirty version of aro relationships.

anonymous asked:

how do you guys get so good at identifying jumps? i have been watching a bunch but they move so fast and its so hard to tell what foot they jump on ;-;

Basically just by watching a lot of skating. It gets easier with time and experience. Don’t worry if you still can’t tell jumps apart - you can still enjoy skating even without being able to identify jumps, and with time, it will start to make more sense.

Rather than focusing on exactly which foot and which edge a skater takes off on - because truthfully, without slow-mo it can be hard to see the details - I find that looking at the “shape” or “feel” of the jump setup makes it easier to identify jumps when watching in real time. For example, salchows have a “sweeping” motion upon takeoff as the skater swings one leg around, and in loops, the skater’s legs are crossed before takeoff. For tips on recognizing toe jumps (flip and lutz, especially), see this ask from a while ago. And there are a few more tips in our intro to jumps guide.

So in celebration of our first anniversary of doing this fic together Mimu and I would like to present the newest chapter with all new fusions, shenanigans and shipping. It’ll also be nice to cross a few spots off of our beloved fusion speculators lists too. 

We’ll try to answer all of the questions that we can about this chapter in the following days (spoiler free of course). In the meantime, we hope you enjoy!

Anon requested: #8 - “Can I borrow a shirt to wear?”
Pairing: Lucaya

A/N: Wanted to get this out for you guys bc an anon wanted some more of my writing!! Enjoy!

It was late and she fell asleep. She didn’t mean to fall asleep, but she did, they both did. Lucas was supposed to wake her up, but he ended up drifting off too.

“Huckleberry!” Maya shakes him.

Lucas awakes with a jolt. “W-what?” He mumbles, rubbing his sleepy, drooped eyes.

“It’s seven and we’re late for school!” Maya shrieks, running around his room desperately trying to stuff their books into their bags.

“Shit.” Lucas jumps out of bed, throws on a old shirt and fresh jeans that he thinks his mom just washed.

“Can I borrow a shirt to wear?” Maya mumbles, arms crossed as she leans on his desk.

Lucas turns to face her. “You want to borrow one of my shirts?”

Maya nods, biting her lip. “Well, I can’t go to school wearing the same shirt two days in a row, can I?”

“I guess you can’t.” Lucas shakes his head, tossing her a clean, red and black plaid shirt to put on. “Hey, now everyone will know you stayed over.” He points out.

“Or they’ll just think I stole your shirt because I look cute in it.” Maya smirks.

“Yes you do.”
