I am immensely thankful for the talented people who have created art / edits for this story: x, x, x, x, x, x ♡ also, make sure to read moonlight (drabble from jimin’s pov) and home after rain (short sequel) after reading this story. enjoy!


You were eighteen years old when Jimin’s name showed up on your hand.

The day is fresh and clear in your memory: early December, the winds stronger than ever as they threatened to pierce through the windows of your room, hints of snowflake dancing in the air as the first snowfall augured an even sharper winter. There was a smile on your face that didn’t match the unrelenting coldness of the month, and even though the night was falling and the air felt icy on the tips of your fingers, there was only warmth in your chest as you went through the pictures of your phone.

Pictures of you and Jimin drinking hot chocolate, of clumsy iceskating, of funny faces that made you laugh out loud in the quietness of your bedroom. The feeling sparking in your chest could be considered somewhat dangerous— after all, you were just a girl that didn’t have any marks on her skin, a girl whose fate was yet to be decided. Something as enigmatic as love could be a treacherous thing, too risky for someone that couldn’t decide their destiny on their own.

So the CS wedding is finally happening .. I binged watched OUAT before S6 so I didn't get to spend much time in the fandom so I thought it'll be fun to relive CS moments with CSers who were there from the start! When/how/why did you know that CS was the ship for you? What are your top three romantic CS scenes? What are you top three angsty CS scenes? What are your top 3 CS kisses? What is your most memorable CS related fandom moment? What is one thing you would still like to see happen with CS?

Aww this is so cool! I wasn’t in fandom from the start, but I did watch from the beginning, and honestly - the moment they climbed that beanstalk together and Hook was like “I was hoping it’d be you” while Emma glared at him like “I’m watching you and it’s not because you’re handsome, you idiot”. I didn’t get invested in the sense of “I want this to be canon” because I figured there was a good chance they wouldn’t go there in canon, but yeah, it ticked all the boxes for me from the beginning.

Top 3 romantic moments:

  • The ice wall. Killian’s desperation to get through to Emma, and then afterwards that soft moment in the loft where he looked after her and she let him.
  • When Killian talked to Emma about her parents and encouraged her to make things right with them. It might not be grand romance, but I love that quiet sort of support and the way they both genuinely want what’s best for the other, and Killian knows how important family is to Emma and wanted to help her keeps hers.
  • That scene. You know the one. We all know the one. “You traded your ship for me?” “Aye.” And she finally let herself believe in him and they kissed and it was magical and we all cried.

Top 3 angsty moments:

  • When his lips were cursed and she held his hook and afterwards he wanted to reach for her but he couldn’t and she finally flirted with him and he couldn’t and there were many tears, most of them mine.
  • When Rumple took Killian’s heart and he couldn’t save her, couldn’t tell her what was wrong, couldn’t do anything except wait and pray.
  • Every secret furtive look in Neverland when he didn’t think anyone would ever really trust and accept him and she didn’t think anyone would ever really love her and mean it, and they were both battling their own demons as the lost boy and lost girl that they were, and at the same time neither of them could quite help hoping because hope, like darkness, is a funny thing; it creeps up on you.

Top 3 CS kisses:

Okay I’m switching to gifs on this one.

[x] It’s just so sweet and casual and this is clearly something they do all the time now, because they’ve gone from “why don’t you try enchanting the lips of someone I’ll actually kiss” to this, this situation where they meet in the mornings just so they can spend a few minutes together on their way to work. And yes. I love it.

He goes from “damn it Swan I said be gentle” to “holy crap I can feel again” and you can watch the change come over him, like the full blast of his feelings for her just hits him all at once and he can’t help it, he has to kiss her and back her up against the wall and kiss her some more and then it turns all soft and smile-y and just. Yes.

[x] Do I really need to explain why I love this kiss? I love this kiss. I love this whole moment. They’re finally together. He’s finally proven himself a man of honour and she’s finally letting herself believe it and they’re both a little incredulous that the other believes in them and wants to give them a chance, and a little scared, and a lot happy, and it’s the perfect moment and the perfect kiss for that moment and I love it.

Most memorable CS fandom moment

I’m gonna say the lead-up to their date. Like. They were going on an actual date because they were in an actual relationship and Emma was not running and Killian was not hesitating and there were headcanons and spec fics and it was glorious. Actually, all of the speculation and headcanons and things during season 4, especially 4a, were glorious.

One thing I’d still like to see happen:

I want to see them fight together as a married couple that bickers and snarks at each other while kicking ass in perfect unison. Give me Emma blasting someone with magic and Killian catching and dispatching them with his sword. Give me all the flirty banter - “Getting a little slow in your old age, pirate?” “You weren’t complaining last night, love.” Give me blind trust in action, that perfect kind of teamwork that you get when two people just know each other. I know it won’t happen in canon but ohhh I want it.

Wow. I never thought I’d get questions like this, give me some time, will ya?

Haha nope, I’m kidding. Also, this will be filled with gifs, so beware *gifs not mine, credit to all owners


I knew they were THE ship for me when Killian turned his ship around and decided to stay and help (even though it was too late by then since the device used to destroy SB was already taken care of). As well as Emma’s words in Granny’s diner that had an effect on him before

“You can join us and be a part of something, or you can do what you can do best, and be alone.”

And even after.

I thought you didn’t care about anyone but yourself.”

There’s also the fact that since we’ve known Emma, up until that point and even during early season 2 she had these walls up to keep people out, to protect herself from getting heartbroken again. Then this man comes along and turns her world on its axis.

Then we have him pretty much reading her like an open book

Have you ever been in love?

No. I have never been in love.

Gosh making me think about Tallahassee makes it obvious from the start, doesn’t it? Hell their whole adventure in that episode was the best.

When they were first one screen together, you can automatically sense that chemistry, that they’re pretty alike in the things they do or say. Even the way they parallel each other is a bonus. They’re kindred spirits. I pretty much thought he was a jerk with a cocky attitude and that made me love him, to be honest. I’m a sucker for a bad boy meets girl and falls head over heels and becomes a better man not only for her, but mostly for himself.

(You’re really making me work for this.)

3. The now that we’re alone kiss aka the leg is up and the booty will be grabbed kiss in The Savior

Most memorable fandom moment?

It’d be probably have to be when we can all freak out when we get a spoiler relating to CS, whether it be a small one, like a script tease that sometimes might not even make it in the episode or a big one like the wedding being announced in the musical episode as well as first look at her wedding dress. We tend to lose our shit a lot. I really love that.

And finally, a CS moment that hasn’t happened yet that I’d like to see?

Well my obvious answer would have to be Captain Swan tacos/coffee/sexy times whatever you want to call it lol. I would also say their wedding, but since we’re getting that, I’ll remove it from the list. I guess I’m gonna have to go with a Captain Swan baby. I mean, have you seen these two? Their baby would turn heads.

anonymous asked:

Say, kinda branching off of the last request, how would Akechi feel about all the time his S/O had to spend with Akira? Maybe like jealousy headcanons? How he dealt with it? How S/O comforted and reassured him that they didn't like akira like that?

Thank you for requesting anon! If this wasn’t what you wanted, please tell me and I will fix it!

How much would you bet that Akira would be dead?

  • Like no joke
  • Don’t mess with Akechi’s S/O
  • But, if we’re assuming Akiras not dead or in jail
  • The jealousy
  • THE JEALOUSY
  • Imagine the intense stare-offs for them
  • Everyone would be hiding under things
  • Like the table
  • Or a couch
  • How would they even fit under the couch, no one knows but they do it anyway
  • And then the S/O, casually sitting there being as oblivious as ever
  • Just like,
  • So pure
  • They wouldn’t know unless Akechi outright told them
  • Like, “I’M JEALOUS N O T I C E  M E S/O!!!!!!!!”
  • Help them
  • But then the S/O would love them unconditionally
  • Because if they didn’t, they would be a monster and would need to leave the universe.
  • They wouldn’t necessarily ignore Akira or anything, but they would hang around them a little less if Akechi were around.
  • But Akira being Akira, would totally understand and back the hell up.
  • And the S/O  would shower Akechi in affection and love
  • Shower them with affection and love until he was like “pls stop”
  • It would be freaking magical this relationship you don’t understand it’s beautiful
  • Now for the headcanons about how the S/O would tell if Akechi was jealous
  • He’d be a lot more talkative to try and get his S/O’s attention
  • Probably very touchy, like poking them or something annoying like that
  • Hugs
  • All that jazz
  • The stare-offs with Akira
  • Very “HEY S/O OVER HERE LOOK ISN’T THIS SO COOL?”
  • And there’s like a dying tree
  • And that’s all I can think of right now

You’re swell, I like you :) 

I knew that CS was the ship for me when this happened:

They were looking at each other like that and I just knew that was it for me. Cuz the entire time before this, Emma had been seemingly unaffected by him, and this was the moment she (and the audience) sort of go, “Oh shit,” and then the whole, “I can’t take a chance that I’m wrong about you,” happened and it was like, OKAY WELL THAT’S IT, THAT’S MY SHIP, I AM READY, LET’S DO THIS. And then we did, and now we’re getting married in a few weeks :’))) It’s amazing, isn’t it??

Anyway, it’s so hard to pick “Top” scenes because with CS, I feel like we were so lucky in that we got the slowest fucking burn EVER on any TV show, which resulted in a ton of romantic/shippy moments and I could easily break it down season by season LOL. That being said, I’ll answer today with how I’m feeling and what comes to mind, but just know that I have loved every single second we’ve ever gotten of CS :’))

Top 3 Romantic Moments (in no specific order)

1. The S3 Finale Kiss :’))

2. “Story time” in the vault is easily in my Top 5 always and forever though :’))

3. “I’ll never stop fighting for us” followed by The Kiss™ with the light flare and the flowers and me on the ground sobbing. (I would like to note that the entirety of the Camelot arc was Good Shit™)

(I would also like to note that I’m mad you are making me choose :P)

Top 3 Angsty Moments

1. Emma saying that one thing we (and Killian) have been dying for her to say… only to sacrifice herself to the darkness. UGH. IT HURT SO GOOD.

2. The elevator goodbye we don’t talk about ever – EVER – because it Hurts Me™

3. EMMA PRESSING HER FOREHEAD AGAINST THE DOOR AND TURNING OFF THE LIGHTS WHEN SHE REALIZES KILLIAN ISN’T COMING HOME TT-TT

Top 3 Kisses

1. The Lift Kiss™

2. The ‘Move In With Me’ Kiss™

3. The ‘Yes, I Will Marry You’ 2.0 Kiss™

Most Memorable CS Related Fandom Moment: When the spoilers leaked about Emma AND Killian’s names being on Excalibur. IT WAS SO FUCKING EPIC, MY STOMACH STILL SWOOPS THINKING ABOUT IT! WHAT DID IT MEAN THAT OUR OTP’S NAMES WERE ON ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS WEAPONS IN HISTORY?? WHAT. DID. IT. MEAN??? (It meant we were in for a world of pain, but it was great LOL :D)

One thing I’d like to still see happen with CS: Them in a bed. Please.  

Also children, because after that scene with Alexandra, Daddy Killian is a thing I need in my life tout suit.

Fin :’))

Winter in Chibi got me thinking about this but one of my favorite CRWBY things is that even though Elizabeth didn't have the shared RT connection Kara and most of the other VA's have, that her and Kara bonded so much over being "Schneesters". Seeing them getting excited to go to cons together is the cutest thing.

Elizabeth kinda fit right in at Rooster Teeth and I love it. She and Kara apparently became super close after Elizabeth was cast as Winter - like spending a bunch of time together outside of working together. It’s great and Elizabeth is so insanely talented.

Ciao namibean! I've just realized how much the "kun" of sanji is important for nami! When she slapped him, she didn't say anything as "lord" or "sanji-sama" but she simply dropped the kun it means that is very important for her. Eureka

Hello my dear anon, ^^

Yep, Nami dropping the “-kun” was a major thing in ch 844 (I’m really looking forward to seeing that scene animated) and I remember it being discussed at length at the time [x].  So I hope you don’t mind me not spending too much time on this.  I just get really exhausted when beating a topic to death.  But here are some points from me on the subject ^^:

  • This was one of the chapters where MS really pissed me off with their translation.  The whole garbage lines of “Pardon me, Lord Sanji” and “Fare thee well” still make me cringe.  Nami’s actual dialogue is “Wait, Sanji…” and “Goodbye.”  Simple is best, kids.
  • To an outsider or someone not really familiar with the Japanese story, it may seem that Nami dropping the “-kun” would mean she and Sanji are more familiar with each other.  That’s not the case here.  There were maybe 2 or 3 times in the entire series prior to this chapter where Nami didn’t use “-kun” (sorry that I can’t find the post where I discussed this) and I remember one of those being during a critical time in Alabasta.  The thing to remember with the slap is Nami intentionally dropping the “-kun” signaled a distance.  I can’t tell you how many English fanfics I’ve come across where Nami and Sanji are about to get *cough* intimate *cough* and the writer makes Sanji say something along the lines of, “Just call me Sanji” or “Please call me by my name for once.”  To that I shake my head and say, nah, nah, nah.  Nah man, nah.  Sanji and Nami using honorifics with the other’s name shows their familiarity with each other.  When Nami dropped it, that was her way of treating him like a stranger.
  • It was a big relief when Nami called him Sanji-kun again in 857 because it showed that she still cared and thought of him as her nakama.  
  • Even if they were to get married (not because I’m a SaNa shipper, but because that would be the closest relationship they could have with each other) I think they would still refer to each other as Nami-san and Sanji-kun.  It would be too weird if they stopped using the honorifics.

Thank you! ^^/

At my job, there is a computer where you register your purchase before checking out. Most people look at the computer dumbfounded even though it literally shows you what to do. This one guy had been bugging me the whole time: "You need to help us" and didn't understand that I can't hold his hand, but I can absolutely explain where things are/what to do. So I tell him how to start the computer, and when it asks for his information he wants ME to type it because he's "spending so much money."

Charles Vane Appreciation Week: Day 6 — Favorite AU

Modern!Vane. He obviously spends most of his time sailing and is in an on and off relationship with the young CEO of the Guthrie Shipping Corporation. He lives on his boat that he probably won in a game of of cards. Or he killed the former owner, no one remembers, truth be told, he’s probably a wanted man in at least 10 countries.

ntbogoni  asked:

How about "♝: Reading a book together" for Sarita and Reyes? See I really didn't meant it when I told you to stop >< Lets test my pain treshold!

Yay! Prompts! This one takes place before the Santa Sarita series, post-Meridian. Also, I’m not sure if this counts as reading a book together, but I’m running with it. And you can blame Alec for the terrible options in reading material…


Reyes could tell that Sara didn’t spend much time in the Pathfinder’s quarters on Hyperion. The guns on the wall were one clue. Sara was a lethal biotic and she didn’t have much patience for firearms beyond her Equalizer, which fired almost as fast as she moved across the battlefield. It was obvious the weapons had belonged to her father, just like the antique coffee machine and the vast array of monitors.

He forgave her for not inviting him here before. Undoubtedly the room was painful for her, a monument to the man she’d loved, despite their differences.

But now, as he sat at her bedside, watching over her as she lay with unnatural calm, he really wished there was more of her personality in the room. He’d already scoured it for any sort of speakers, but apparently Alec had not been a fan of music. His furniture was all standard issue, as to be expected, and his work station was heavily encrypted. Reyes was confident he could hack the system, but he wouldn’t. That was an invasion of privacy he couldn’t rationalize. It might get him answers to nagging questions, but so would more conversations with Sarita.

Restless, he stood and paced the room again. It was late and he should try to sleep, but he felt pent up. He’d already listened to all the audio logs scattered around the room, and though the information Dr. T’Soni shared with Alec was interesting, it was of little value beyond the scope of the Protheans. Reyes imagined Sara sitting on the couch, listening with great wonder as an expert in her field gave her father pointers for discovering new life. The image brought a smile to his face.

He turned and paced along the shelves nearest the door. There was a long series of paper books, intriguing purely by their existence. On closer inspection, they proved to be the journals of Lewis and Clark, 19th Century human explorers.

Reyes opened one, curious, and groaned. They were dreadfully boring. He glanced at Sara where she slept, her face serene. Dr. T’Perro had ceased administering the sedative, and was confident that Sara could hear them. She said it would only be a couple days before she woke.

He looked back at the book and sighed as he tucked it under his arm. He lay on the bed beside her, propped up on pillows against the headboard and opened the book.

“`August 30, 1803. Left Pittsburgh this day at 11 o’clock with a party of eleven hands, seven of which are soldiers, a pilot and three young men on trial, they having proposed to go with me throughout the voyage.’” Reyes glanced at her. “Did your father actually read these?” He asked. “This is terrible.” He cleared his throat and continued. “`Arrived at Bruno’s Island three miles below, halted a few minutes. Went on shore and being invited on by some of the gentlemen present to try my airgun, which I had purchased…’” he paused and skimmed ahead.

He grunted, turning back to Sara. “He goes on for about two more paragraphs bragging about his shooting.” He skimmed a little further. “Holy shit,” he said. “They shot a woman!” He checked to see if she responded in any fashion, but she was still as ever. He read on. “Huh, the woman was fine, just a scratch apparently. Then they left, until they made camp, at which point Lewis gave his men whiskey.”  He smirked, “my kind of man.” He frowned. “Well, except for the shooting women accidentally.”

He yawned, and sank lower on the bed. He tried to read further, but the journals were a better sedative than anything Lexi could provide him. He set the journal on the nightstand, and then rolled to face Sara, his arm looping over her stomach.

He watched in awe as her lips curled up at the corners, and a tiny pleased hum vibrated in her throat. Gingerly, he kissed her cheek and settled into the bed beside her.

“Tomorrow, I’ll find something more entertaining to read,” he promised, and then fell asleep, the warmth of her smile just as comforting as the warmth of her body.

Ladynoir July Day 15 - "Animal Instincts"

***********

This is absolute TRASH, I didn’t edit it at all, and I don’t think I used the prompt correctly, but oh well. Here’s my day 15. It’s a long one.

*********

Chat shivered and crossed his arms over his chest. He and Ladybug had only been patrolling for about an hour now, but as much as he loved spending time with his lady, Chat found he simply could not take this rain. Maybe it was the coldness of it, maybe it was the cat-like animal senses he acquired when he became Chat; all Chat really knew was that he absolutely hated it.
Chat’s teeth chattered as he followed Ladybug to the edge of the roof. She was running and leaping effortlessly in front of him, actions that normally would have left Chat stunned and speechless, but today he couldn’t even bring himself to watch—staring down at his feet instead and quietly trodding after her. He couldn’t help it; it was just so…wet.
Chat hissed as a particularly large drop of water hit his ear. He flicked it off quickly by twitching his ears, but the feeling of immense uncomfortableness still stayed with him. His whole body felt rigid and frozen, and it took most of his strength to just keep walking straight.
“Chat? You coming?”
Chat peeked up at Ladybug as she addressed him, his arms tightening around himself as he forced a smile.
“Yeah. Sorry m'lady, I’m just a little sore today,” he half-lied.
If Ladybug gave Chat any sort of confused look, he didn’t notice. His head was already back down, watching his step on the slippery rooftop. The last thing he wanted right now was to slip and fall into a massive puddle.
Just the mere thought of being drenched in more water sent chills through Chat’s spine, and he rubbed his arms quickly, trying to warm them. Another thing that definitely did not help Chat’s current situation, was the fact that since Adrien was a model, he was put on a very strict diet to stay as skinny as possible without being unhealthy. The lack of meat on his bones made every single drop of water on his skin go all the way through, chilling him right to the bone. He literally felt like a walking ice cube.
“Chat.”
Chat jumped, his eyes widening and arms dropping as he looked up and realized that he was literally standing inches from Ladybug’s face. She must have stopped running.
Suddenly Chat’s foot slid out from underneath him, and he flailed his arms for a second before falling back and landing hard on the roof.
“Uuugh,” he groaned, sitting up and rubbing his lower back.
“Are you okay?” Ladybug asked, concern obvious in her voice as she extended her hand down to her partner.
Chat sighed frustratedly and accepted her hand, letting her help him back onto his feet. Once he was standing again he quickly wiped as much loose water as he could from his suit, shivering slightly as he re-crossed his arms and hunched his shoulders.
“No. I hate this. Sorry LB, it’s just…” Chat quickly swiped at his wet ears in annoyance, “this rain! I can’t stand it! I think it’s Plagg.”
Chat huffed and shook his head, accidentally spraying water all over Ladybug. At least she was already wet.
“Chat, you should have told me sooner!” Ladybug scolded, her eyes wide as she seemed to finally see her partner’s obvious discomfort. She put a warm arm around Chat and pulled him along to the edge of the roof.
“Hold on,” she instructed him, “I know someplace we can go to dry off.”
He complied instantly, wrapping his arms tightly around Ladybug’s waist as she wrapped hers under his arm. Then she tossed her yo-yo out, latching it onto a nearby building and pulling it taut before taking a running head start and leaping off the roof.
They swung over to the next building almost effortlessly, then the next, and the next, and the next. Chat was just starting to wonder exactly how far away this “place” Ladybug was taking him too was when she finally pulled her yo-yo’s string in with a satisfying “zip” and turned to face him.
“Well, we’re here!” She said, grinning and gesturing her arms to the familiar building in front of them. It took Chat a second to recognize it, but once he did a warm sensation shot through his body. This was the Dupain-Cheng’s bakery—Marinette’s house.
“This is Ma…A bakery?” Chat quickly corrected himself. He wasn’t supposed to know that this was Marinette’s house.
Ladybug nodded, obviously proud of herself for picking such a place to take him.
“Not just any bakery though, this place has some of the best croissants in Paris,” she explained, smiling more to herself than to Chat.
“Really?” Chat asked, faking unawareness.
“Yeah. Haven’t you been here before? Actually no, I don’t want to know that. Just come inside.”
Chat followed Ladybug as she led him up to the door, swinging it open and hurrying him inside before shutting it behind her. Chat shivered and looked around, trying to ignore the fact that he was dripping water all over the floor as he basked in the overwhelming warmth of the bakery. His mouth salivated as his eyes caught on the many rows of pastries, all laid out for customers to see. How long had it been since Adrien had last had a real pastry?
Chat’s stomach rumbled quietly, and he rubbed it half to warm himself up and half to soothe it.
“You hungry?” Ladybug asked, seeming to read his mind.
Chat shrugged.
“I could eat.”
Ladybug rolled her eyes playfully at him before turning to the counter and tapping on the bell once. It chimed lightly in the quiet bakery, barely loud enough to reach the upstairs, but nevertheless no more than a second later Mrs. Dupain-Cheng was climbing down the stairs.
“Sorry, sorry, I had to take care of something upstairs really quick. What would you-”
Mrs. Dupain-Cheng stopped short as she looked up and took in the two very wet superheroes standing in front of her.
“Oh my word it’s Ladybug and Chat Noir,” she mumbled to herself before jumping into action, “what would you like? You two are soaking wet! It must really be raining hard out there.”
Ladybug only nodded, glancing over at Chat as he sidled up to her.
“What do you want?” She asked him, nudging his side and tilting her head towards the counter where Sabine was patiently waiting.
Chat blinked quickly, straightening up and nodding towards the glass case of pastries in front of him.
“I’ll have a chocolate croissant, please.”
Sabine nodded and pulled on some gloves, using tongs to retrieve one of the warm, chocolate pastries from the heated display case. She put it into a small paper bag before turning to Ladybug expectantly.
“Oh I’ll have the same thing,” Ladybug said, gesturing towards the chocolate croissants. Sabine nodded again and quickly pulled another of the pastries from the case.
“Would you like these in separate bags? Or…”
“Together,” Ladybug said quickly, and Chat furrowed his brow beside her.
“My Lady, patrol is over, you can go home and dry off…”
Chat rolled off as Ladybug smiled and took the pastries from Sabine, calling out her thanks as she led Chat over to a table close to the front, away from the earshot of Sabine.
“No Chat, it’s fine. I can stay here with you a little longer. Besides, I’m kind of interested in this whole animal instincts thing. I already knew you could purr, but I had no idea you hated water too.”
Chat shrugged, unconsciously twitching his ears in the warmth.
“I didn’t know either. This is the first time it’s really gotten to me.”
Ladybug hummed thoughtfully, taking a bite of her pastry and chewing. Chat looked down at his pastry, suddenly remembering it was there, and picked it up carefully in his claws.
“What about you, my lady? It would really be very unfair if you didn’t have any animal instincts as well.”
Ladybug frowned, lowering her pastry and groaning.
“Okay, you think your instincts are bad? Today I tried to eat a flower,” she complained, putting her head into her hands dramatically, “a FLOWER!”
Chat grinned, leaning back in his chair and watching with amusement as Ladybug sighed and took another rather large bite of croissant.
“A few days ago I got distracted with a laser pointer for a good ten minutes. I wasn’t even transformed that time.”
Ladybug snorted loudly, then quickly covered her mouth.
“Sorry, I just imagined you chasing a little red dot and-” Ladybug laughed, leaning over the table and running a hand through her dripping bangs.
Chat laughed too, watching his partner giggle over his animal instincts. In a way, her laughter made his animal problems seem smaller, not as big a deal as Chat had originally thought they were. He smiled, eyes softening as he found yet another reason to love his partner.
“You eating a flower sounds pretty comical as well, LB. Did it at least taste good?”
Much to Chat’s pleasure, Ladybug’s laughter only grew as she thought back on her incident earlier today.
“Yes! I knew I should have been disgusted but it was so good, Chat!” She laughed. Chat joined her, and the two laughed together in warm comfortableness before taking a break to breathe.
“Some animal instincts huh?” Ladybug said after a minute, finally calm enough to get out a full sentence without laughing. She bit into her croissant as Chat smiled.
A smear of chocolate was dripping down her cheek, but her eyes were glowing brightly with laughter, and Chat felt another, now familiar warmth spread through his chest that had absolutely nothing to do with the bakery around them.
“Yeah,” he agreed, lifting his croissant in a silent toast, “some instincts.”

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from my latest stream, it’s that Noah is really sweet???? Like incredibly so??? And here I thought he was really cool already. Now I’ve got a cavity from spending so much time with him.

Edit: I don’t remember typing this but I looked through my drafts and found it. How dare I not post this.

i didn't do much today, but yesterday i hung out with one of my close friends after school. we went to a bunch of different stores in the mall and talked a lot. then we signed each others yearbooks cause this is our last year of high school... it was both fun and kind of sad as i know that it will get harder and harder to have a time where its just us two spending three hours at chapters or crying and watching lalaland together. <3

High school can be bittersweet. But I’m glad you got to have great memories with your friends! Keep them close!

The Signs As Moments I've Come To Know
  • Aries: How it felt to stand outside a venue and wait for a local show to start. The air smelling like cigarette smoke, but the loud music and bustling of the crowd outside somehow seeming just right.
  • Taurus: Late nights inside a friend's house. The way her dog would come sit by me and her kitchen floor had a heating system in it. The sound of her laughter when the pizza guy arrived.
  • Gemini: Sitting in Dunkin Doughnuts till the place was nearly empty. Taking off my shoes and running up and down the perimeter of the store, all while talking to people I knew all too well.
  • Cancer: Christmas morning as a small child. The thrill in my stomach when I could feel the outline of a toy beneath it's wrapping paper, and the disappointment when I pulled clothes out of a box.
  • Leo: Middle school musicals. The sense of togetherness the show would bring. Running and getting cheese fries from next door between rehearsals. The smell of Play Dough hovering in the left wing of the stage.
  • Virgo: Sitting with my best friend in an alleyway after dark. Listening to her play guitar and watching her tune it. Heeding her concerns, remembering her words. And never...ever forgetting them.
  • Libra: The leaves falling from the trees on the first morning of October. The togetherness they form, all atop one another regardless of color or form. The comforting familiarity of the Autumn; the "harvests."
  • Scorpio: Frequently spending time with a boy- a boy who didn't say much, but had blue eyes that could cut through glass with a mere glance. Our friendship. What he taught me, and the wolf-like nature he always carried with him.
  • Sagittarius: The opening of a turbulent Winter. My first encounter with the one I love- or first since the first words we had ever spoken to one another. The spark in my stomach when I realized tonight was another night. The sense of adventure about every corner as blankets of snow covered the Earth which was now mine.
  • Capricorn: Rushing out of school. Practically running across the street and straight into my front door. The triumphant walk to the fridge. The way it felt to take a huge bite of pasta for the first time that day.
  • Aquarius: Sitting in my friend's bathroom and dyeing my hair the color of a galaxy. Washing it out in the tub. The odd feeling of another friend running her toes down my back, and how that made me cringe. The purple-pink ombre which left stains on my hands- but stains I didn't mind one bit.
  • Pisces: Dancing around a movie theater playing Pokemon with those so close to me and only pausing to walk home. Naming my Pikachu, my Ralts, even my Ratata, all after the company I had been so lucky to find.
