i have never been more happy for someone i haven't met

A little love for the signs (From a Libra sun, Leo moon)
  • Dear Aries: It doesn't matter how dark times are, you are there for me. And I know you will always support me. You can make me happy like no one else can. You can say something that isn't even funny and I have to laugh with you. I could talk all night with you. About anything. You are full of light, full of life. You deserve everything bright.
  • Dear Taurus: Even though I've never really been so close to you to say that, I want you to know that you're worth it. You are beautiful, your smile helps people not to give up. So don't give up on yourself. You're strong and I know you smile through the pain, but it's okay. We all go through that and I wanted to tell you that you're not alone.
  • Dear Gemini: You are funny, you are witty, you always know how to make me laugh. I am inspired by you. You are so sociable, yet you know how to be alone and overthink things. You can do decisions by yourself, you don't hesistate to make the right choice. I admire you for that. Also, your art is beautiful. You are art.
  • Dear Cancer: I know we haven't been best friends. I know we had fights and that you broke my trust too often. But I realized, you are only a human being, just as me. Everyone keeps making mistakes, but no one wants to admit that. I hope for you that you'll be happy in the future. I want you to concentrate more on yourself, not on others because you are you, and no one can be that for you.
  • Dear Leo: Whenever I talk to you, it feels like we understand each other without saying a word. You are passionate and you are optimistic. You are the person I look up to, you brighten everyone's day, yet no one knows if you're dying inside. You are beautiful and you know it. You taught me it's completely fine to love yourself. So do it.
  • Dear Virgo: You're so selfless. You always try to help me, doesn't matter if you understand me or not. I know that sometimes it's hard for you to show that you care about me, but I notice in this little things you do for me that you do care. And that's fine. You're human. It's okay to break down. It's okay to talk to someone. You will get through this all. I'm right here by your side.
  • Dear Libra: I feel like everyone of you is my sister or my brother. You can make me feel special without knowing it. When we're talking about god and the world, it's like I've known you all my life, even if it's just hours. I want you to look at the mirror and say "I'm proud". Be confident. Believe in youself. Only if you try that, no one will stop you from loving yourself and the world.
  • Dear Scorpio: I don't even know where to start. You changed my life. You taught me things in an emotional way I never thought I'd experience. With every wise word you said you took my breath away. It doesn't matter how much time will fly, I will always remember you. You are my first love and you make everything feel so real. Everytime you look at me, I feel special. You taught me how to love someone and I taught you how to love yourself. Be happy. No matter how we're gonna end, I want you to remember us. You deserve the entire universe.
  • Dear Sagittarius: You doubt yourself more than anyone else. You wear that beautiful smile everyday, but inside you don't even know who you are. I have so much fun with you everytime we do something together. Don't let that happiness die. People look up on you. And you have to do your own thing. Don't give a shit what others think. Find out what you need, what you want and what you love. Everything else will come by time.
  • Dear Capricorn: You are one of the stongest yet most broken person I know. Or should I say, pretend to know? You hide your emotions, afraid of being hurt or replaced. I tell you something: There are people who love you and care about you. There is hope. You can have whatever you want in life, if you're just willing to accept your feelings and yourself.
  • Dear Aquarius: Being around you is like jumping from one cloud to another. Everything feels easier. Even maths. Life is easier with you. The weight of all the bad things in life are gone. I don't know how you're able to make me feel like this, but I'm sure it makes you very special and I hope you never stop making people feel like this because it's one of the best feelings ever.
  • Dear Pisces: If I'm sad, I know I can always talk to you. You always have a solution to my problem. Even if it's just a sentence like "It's okay, we will find a way.", it works. It makes me feel better. You're the most selfless person I've ever met and you're always there for your loved ones. Just take care of yourself, too, because your life is as important as the lives of everyone else.

Part I. Taako thinks about how much he loves Kravitz

Part II. Taako tries his damnedest to parley this information to Kravitz


Part I.

“I love you.” The words taste foreign and almost dry on his tongue, and he’s thankful he’s speaking them in practice to his reflection in a mirror and not to his actual boyfriend. “I’m in love with you,” he tries once again with feeling and comes off a little less ham-fisted but no more confident than before. “Kravitz, I think I love you.” Still blunt. Still hard. Still unnatural.

How do people do this? How did Merle do it – how did Magnus do it? How did Carey do it? It’s got to be easier than this, right?

anonymous asked:

Umm, hello! So I've been mulling something over in my head for a while now-that is, whether I can actually call myself a Baccano! fan if I haven't caught up to the light novels. I have a vague sense of what happens, and have read the first few, but it's been a while and because I haven't read all the novels thanks to sheer inability I'm kind of nervous. Everyone seems to know so much more than I do and I'm afraid to try to join the community because of it and I was hoping for your advice.

Hey anon,

Thank you so much for asking me this, because I want to make something clear right now. 

You are a Baccano! fan.

You know, if we started deciding whether not someone was a fan based on how knowledgeable they were in regards to a series, that would be utterly terrible. There are Star Trek fans out there who have certainly never seen all iterations of Star Trek, nor have they read the comics, or books. There are people who’ve only seen the Lord of the Rings movies, but still consider themselves fans. 

And you know what? They are. They are fans. 

Being a fan does not mean you have to know everything there is to know about a series - there is no ongoing competition here, no race that some of us are trying to win.  There are twenty-two novels in Baccano! so far, and it’s still going - that’s a lot, you know? No one will fault you for ‘being behind’ and revoke your fan card of the series, because that’s just silly. 

You’re a fan because you like Baccano! a lot. That’s it!  That’s the bar. You’ve passed. 

I promise you, there are several people in this community who are still in the process of reading the books. Some have been liveblogging their reactions (to the immense delight of those of us who have read them.) Some are still stuck in 1933, some in 1934, some are (probably) desperately rereading the 2002 arc because they’ve forgotten half of what happens. 

And there are those who are still only mostly familiar with the anime and the first few novels. And they are just as much fans as those who have reread the novels three times and counting

The thing is, you’ve always belonged to this community. You always, always have.  Don’t worry about ‘not knowing as much’ as everyone else - there are those still powering through the series, and even the more supposedly ‘well-read’ fans forget stuff left and right, because holy shit there’s 22 novels two drama CDs two manga one DS game one anime one short story and there is SO MUCH content, honestly, dear Lord. 

Frankly, the only thing you should be worrying about is spoilers, in case you plan on picking up more of the novels at some point. I’ve been trying to use the tag Baccano! spoilers now and then but I’ve been fairly inefficient on that front.

And you know what, anon, I think you’re forgetting one thing - this is a pretty small fandom, all things considered. Which means people are uniformly delighted every time someone starts participating in this community, regardless of how much they know or read. I’ve seen more than once people join - people who have only seen the anime (and sometimes not even the OVAs) - and be met with unabashed welcome (and sheepish warnings of - “aha, we’ll try to warn for spoilers if you’re concerned about them”). 

So, fellow Baccano! fan, I’m so glad you’re here. Please do join in the fun - we are more than happy to welcome you. If you have any questions at any time about the series, someone will be sure to respond (like me!). I am so looking forward to seeing your content. 

Thank you for speaking up. Everything I’ve said here applies to all folks who feel similarly - folks who’ve only seen the anime, folks who’ve maybe picked up the first novel - anyone and everyone who feels like they’re not ‘good enough’ to be a part of this community. 100% bunk, that. You’re all fans and I’ll shout it from the rooftops if I have to. 

- Rev 


Okay wow, so here’s a number I never thought I’d reach in around 10 months, let alone at all. But here we are, elbows deep in a lot of angsty plots/headcanons, Jim temper tantrums and fluffy moments, and I simply had to make this, because you little nuggets mean a lot to me because without you guys to bug Jim, we wouldn’t be here. So without further ado…

The Signs as People I've Come To Know
  • Note that everyone described was born under the sign they are listed next to.
  • Aries: He doesn't really know fear, but when he does it's intense fear. More than anything, he is a daredevil, going from place to place and from person to person quickly and dangerously. He tells jokes until they're soiled and sour and you just wanna tell him to shut up, but you know you aren't going to because his stupid jokes that often make no sense and aren't even funny are all a part of what makes him who he is, so you can't help but laugh, and at the end of the day that's a person you find yourself always coming back for. A person you just genuinely want to be around for a long time. He can be air headed, but he protects ferociously and is endearingly kind to strangers. Inside, he never quite lost his childlike nature, something I hope he can one day embrace. I also hope he can one day understand, he is not his mistakes.
  • Taurus: She has a lot to say that she keeps inside, but whenever she does speak it is always soulful and insightful beyond description. It's so easy for her to get lost in her own mind, and though she doesn't care to admit it, it happens a lot that she shuts down and isolates herself. But everything is honestly better when she's around. Sometimes it's hard to convince her of that, but she has an inner and outer beauty that glows on everyone she meets. She doesn't realize other people take notice of her radiance. When she retreats, it's not uncommon for her to be quiet and not really know how to explain why she's feeling the way she is, and yet she approaches things with such an extreme level of insight and consideration. She makes everyone around her proud. Introverted as she may be, she pampers all her friends, even when they may not deserve it, and she's more brave and outspoken than I think she understands. She is one of the people who genuinely makes me happy.
  • Gemini: She is curious about almost anything and everything, and invests fully into things that interest her. It's actually beyond pleasant to watch her work out a task she loves working on, or talk about anything she loves in general, because her eyes light up and she has this smile on her face and you can just tell in that moment she loves being heard and she loves sharing what she's come to find wonderful with someone. I wouldn't call her quiet, at times she is, but I would first use the adjective "thoughtful" to describe her, as her mind is constantly generating new ideas. She processes and remembers information quickly and speaks about her feelings almost fluently. More than anything, I hope she knows I am always there for her. I hope she knows how much people love her. She is so kind, and a delight to be around.
  • Cancer: She has been through a lot. She used to walk through life with a heavy heart, but she is trying to learn how to remove the crutches and take everything as it comes. Very driven by her emotions, she experiences drastically different periods of highs and lows, but never lets anyone go to bed without knowing how much she loves them and cares about them. She has certainly been done wrong by the world, and this has led her to experience frequent trust issues and to on occasion become suspicious about other people's motives. However, this doesn't stop her from giving her all to those she loves, even if at times they may not completely deserve her help or her advice. She often settles for less than what she deserves, but I hope that she can eventually come to understand she need not settle and need not cater to people who do her wrong. She should look out for herself too, it's something she owes herself.
  • Leo: Though I haven't known her for very long, it's clear how influential she is and how in tune she is to other people's feelings. She seems very open to the world around her, and has no problem expressing herself without fear of what other people may think. She always does her makeup almost flawlessly, and you can tell she dresses for herself and no one else, and only worries about impressing one person, her. She is extremely loyal to those she cares about, and often talks about them as if they are wonders of the world. Even if you haven't spoken to her before, you will want to, because she gives off extremely positive and warm vibes, and publicly stands for everything and everyone she happens to believe in. She has a big personality, but a beautiful one at that, she is a true individual, and is one of the only other Leo's I've come to know, as well as one I hope to know better soon.
  • Virgo: She is wise beyond her years. She often works harder than most adults I've seen, although she is young in age. She always wants to make sure she has a say, but it's just as important to her that other people do, too. Other people don't always treat her as nicely as she deserves to be treated, and it's because they think they don't understand her, but in reality, they wish they had the heart and bravery that she does. She has accomplished and been through so much in such a short period of time, and she never let it taint all the love in her heart. She can be a bit anxious and scared, waking up at night after a nightmare or worrying she has not done her best, but she always gives her all, and I strongly believe there is nothing she cannot surmount or accomplish. Always willing, always eager to help. I wish I had her strength. I wish I had the beauty of her soul. I hope she someday sees how magnificent she is.
  • Libra: He is a character, he has always been a character dating back from the first day that we met. Everything he does and everything he says is with good intent and magnifies his already vibrant personality. Overall, he is a people's person, friends with everyone who is kind and attentive toward him. And he plans to keep it that way. He always tries to see the best in everyone. Although sometimes he cannot continue this and experiences outbursts of anger, they are usually temporary and he can move on from situations quickly. He is a marvelous friend. Creative, funny, often indirect, but always there in some form. Half the things that Come out of his mouth are jokes, but when he speaks and he's being serious, all you can hear is his heart speaking too. He's great to have around.
  • Scorpio: He says that he has a twisted mind, but really he's just into a lot of horror movies and has extreme reactions to otherwise small situations. I couldn't see him harming a fly, unless the fly went and did something to really piss him off. He can be a little self centered, but he is also self sufficient and just wants to make sure he himself is okay. When he starts something, it'll get done before he moves onto the next thing, and he's not really one to leave anyone with unanswered questions as he's pretty intense and direct. He's great to talk to because no silence is ever awkward, some of those silences are necessary and he knows it. He won't let things stay quiet for too long, either. One of my favorite things about him is once you've been a part of his life, he'll never forget about you. Even if you're miles and miles away.
  • Sagittarius: He gets extremely excited about small things, like going on a trip or hanging out with his friends and playing video games. He knows no part of life is insignificant, and that everything we go through either means something or leads to something else, but he also knows when to let go and stop worrying about things that are out of his control. Overall, he loves to have fun. He loves to laugh with his friends and share what makes him happy. When people disagree with him, he can become rather snippy, and might even resort to telling them they are flat out "wrong." He doesn't realize he's being rude, but often it just doesn't come out the way he would like because he speaks exceedingly freely. That's what he is, a free spirit. He makes decisions for himself and is not afraid of his opinions. He will share them willingly with anyone who asks and takes great pride in being who he is and leading the adventure called his life.
  • Capricorn: She is aware of who she is, what her limits are, and what her intentions are as well. Though sometimes she surprises others by acting the way one wouldn't have expected, she is consistently trying to take responsibility for things she know she's done wrong and does not like it when people refuse to acknowledge it when she has been acting like a fool. She holds herself accountable for many things, even when they are not exactly her fault, and she refuses to be kept in the dark for too long. When people don't like her, she wants an explanation, because she always tries to do her best and be the best version of herself she can become. It hurts her to consider that she is not doing well with that. She wants stability and security, she wants to be able to feel safe in situations, and that's all a part of what she fights for. Overall, life is a fight she does not want to lose. And one she will not allow herself to.
  • Aquarius: She is one of the most artistic people I've had the privilege of meeting, and decorates everywhere she goes and everything she creates with her glowingly positive vibes. She cares deeply about her friends, and however quiet she has a brilliant way of words, and is a phenomenal person to have a late night (or any time of day really) conversation with. She understands life on a deep level that not a lot of people do. Although she may not always feel comfortable completely showing her emotions, she is not afraid to be in touch with them and always knows how to nicely phrase them. I'm grateful that when I ask her what's wrong, she doesn't lie to me and she trusts me enough to talk to me about it. I know it's not always the type of thing that's easy for her. She is artistically talented in every aspect, and aims to perfect her performance in all she does. But honestly, the way she adds her own flair to all she accomplishes and makes it so original is an amazing thing to witness in itself.
  • Pisces: He doesn't understand the impact he can have on others. It is not uncommon for him to get so lost in his thoughts he forgets about the rest of the world, but he seemingly always finds his way back. Whenever he drifts, he will usually talk about it at one point or another, and he always has all these philosophical things to say that never cease to amaze me. His speech is always sweet and fluid, and he always sees things, both their interior and their exterior. Even though sometimes he asks silly questions, he's highly perceptive and caring. He loves having a good time, but he loves talking about life and all it entails as well, and he knows that both those things can overlap. He's one of the greatest friends I think I will ever know, and he always tries to be, even if at times he can't. I wish he came out everyday.

anonymous asked:

...If you still want to write stuff: 18. for KaiShin, pretty please?

This is obviously crazy late, but to make up for it, it’s also incredibly long.  I hope you enjoy it.  8)  Thank you again for sending the prompt request.  I had fun writing this!


“Well, how are you feeling?” Haibara asked, voice flat, but eyes betraying her concern.  Shinichi took stock:  body at its correct proportions, no fever, no pain…

“I feel… okay,” Shinichi said, smile slowly stretching across his face.  “Haibara, I think we did it.”  He laughed helplessly, pressing his hands to his face.  He felt like he could cry with the sheer relief.

“I’d like to run some checks, just in case,” Haibara said, sighing quietly.  “You remember the questions we prepared yesterday?”

“The ones to check my memory?”

“Yes.  I’ll start from the beginning.  Please state your name and occupation.”

“My name is Kudou Shinichi, and I’m a student detective.  I most often work for the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Force.”

“I’d like you to name your closest friends for me.”

“Mouri Ran and Suzuki Sonoko are my childhood friends; Ran, my childhood crush.  Hattori Heiji is a hot-blooded detective from Osaka and one of my best friends and something of a rival.  The Detective Boys are Ayumi, Mitsuhiko, Genta, and Haibara.  They’re supervised—kind of—by Professor Agasa.  I work the most often with Inspector Megure and Detectives Satou and Takagi, along with Mouri Kogoro, Ran’s father.”

“Impressive.  As expected of Kudou,” Haibara said smiling.  Turning back to her notes, she continued, asking him to detail their operation from start to finish, explain the deductions he’d made at the end…

It was weird, though, for all he could answer every question, he felt like he was forgetting something.  But if it wasn’t in Haibara’s note cards, it must not have been all that important.

Season 4 head cannons/game changer
  • So I have no clue what's going to happen at the end of season 3. I surprisingly haven't seen many spoilers from the finale lol. However, I have seen some very vague spoilers and from what I gathered, I definitely could be wrong, they are not going with the game changer.
  • Now I already wrote a post saying I personally think it would be cool if they did the game changer and the show actually didn't end. Because let's be honest, we all know the game changer could be the end of the show. BUT if it got renewed I think it would be interesting. But yes everything would change.
  • So I have so many head cannons on if the game changer happened
  • -time skip (but only like a year because I wouldn't want them to go through more than that) I imagine the "game changer" would come to an end by the time the kids are ready to go to their junior year of high school preferably the summer before
  • -Maya and Zay get SUPER CLOSE. Can't y'all just see it?! I have so many head cannons for them alone, that's for another post
  • - Of course Maya and Riley are still the bestest best friends in the land! FaceTime, snapchat, text, call you cant keep them apart lol. When things first go back to normal there is a little awkwardness because that's normal but overall they are SOLID 🔥👌🏾
  • -rucas tries, they really do, but obviously that doesn't work out lol. I ship rucas I really do, but only for Riley's first BF. I think with this game changer, their relationship wouldn't last. Shit from the spoilers from the finale it doesn't even look like Riley and Lucas are going to try 😂 at least in my head cannon they would try and really like each other but just can't make it work. When the game changer ends they realize they still have low key feelings for each other and that insues a LITTLE drama but quickly they realize they are both different and it is never the way that it was and that's the end of that but they are still great friends.
  • -Joshaya kind of falls apart. Well not really falls apart per se. They said someday so... But I think with the game changer realistically, Maya wouldn't see Josh. So they don't really fall apart as much as, no new developments with them, actually, Josh gets a new girlfriend or something and Maya starts dating other guys. Basically they don't really see each other for the duration of the game changer. They probably won't see each other again until Maya is like 16-17 (and I've made my feelings for joshaya very clear before. I have head cannons galore for them lol that's another post for another day)
  • -Riley has changed, grown up. Now Riley is always going to be Riley. She is always going to be positive, look at the best in things and have a certain innocence to her but after the game changer she is different. Not lost different, but more grown up. She is for the better. Listens to some cool music that she learned about and wants to share, her clothes 😍 imagine it now. She has met new people, done new things, some things that may/will be surprising to her friends. Everyone is impressed and almost in awe at the new Riley. Again she hasn't changed drastically, she is definitely still Riley but she is more grown up. Everyone is here for it.
  • - Farkle and Smackle have broken up by this point too. They are still friends but it fell apart somewhere lol. Now here's where things get dicey lol I ship Riarkle I mean who doesn't but I want riarkle done the right way, I saw someone describe it as a slow burn. IF riarkle did happen I would want it to be when they were older, possibly junior/senior year. Farkle is now one of the low key hot popular guys, he has options and recently has been turning up 👀 (not in a true fuck boy way because Farkle is too good for that. He was just one of those glo ups that people started to notice, which happens a lot in high school) but lol head cannon riarkle happens in a very casual way Riely and Farkle hanging out, doing homework, laughing, play arguing (maybe Riley teased him about his latest "girlfriend"), and somewhere between laughing and playful jabs, kisses happen Lol I want riarkle to be THE friendship to relationship on this damn show lol I want laughter, friendship, the MOTHER FUCKING BURN. Honestly to me i would rather no riarkle than Riley still low key liking Lucas riarkle that's why I'm happy af Riley and Lucas are together right now. GO RUCAS! 😄
  • -although Maya and Riley stayed as close as could be there were things both did that they didn't tell the other about. Post game changer, things are admitted, great friendship moments, more growth, more Maya and Riley balance.
  • -Topanga was LIVING for the game changer but glad things are back to normal, her wardrobe is BOMB
  • -Auggie and Ava. Oh lord! when your a kid it's harder to get through something like this. Post game changer Ava gives Auggie the cold shoulder feeling betrayed and she made new friends. Poor baby Auggie honestly had the hardest time with the game changer and post game changer. Auggie and Ava, like Cory and Topanga go through some "lost years" (BMW reference) but FTW IF NO OTHER couple on this damn show is endgame Auggie and Ava are. At the end of everything Auggie and Ava will grow up and get married. And I think THAT is going to be a damn story.
  • -Cory just goes with the flow completely in love with his wife and kids, tries to give lessons when he can. Learned A LOT from the game changer very happy for the experience. Post game changer makes corny jokes about his experience and uses accents 😉
  • -I have nothing specific on Lucas or Smackle. And Zay, I would need a whole other post to do head cannons on him 😍

sky-daybreak  asked:

Is the Ask-box still open for the omegaverse asks? If not, please just ignore this, I'll just resend it should you do one of these things again. If it's open,could I request an alpha!Aomine courting his s/o and/or their first date together (where you could or could not add another alpha trying to hit on his mate, this is totally up to you) I hope this is okay? I haven't done anything like this before, so I hope I managed to get it right? I wish you so much fun with all your omegaverse requests!

Anonymous - “Can I please have an alpha! Aomine trying and failing to control himself around his gf?”

Hi, munchkin! This is totally okay, thank you for sending a request! I’m going to mix these two, hope you don’t mind!

(Also, anon, I see what you did there. You sent this very same ask to Lyn, didn’t you ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) For your request, instead of making it nsfw like you probably wanted, I’m going to do something along the lines of this)

Characters: Aomine Daiki, Female!Reader (as per requested, but it’s mostly written in second POV)
Word count: 1452
Rating: T
Warnings: mild violence, but nothing too extreme; cursing.

Aomine:

He has never been the smoothest, kindest or the most sensitive alpha out there. Many would describe him as a lazy brute, and sometimes that was the truth. He often had very little interest in things that didn’t involve sleeping and basketball, which seemed to apply even to his unwillingness to find a mate.

Aomine’s firm belief was that he’d only mate permanently with the omega that was just right for him; indeed, not everyone could put up with him, especially on his bad days, and the teenager was uninclined to put up with an omega that clearly wouldn’t have been able to keep him on his toes.

Then he met you.

crimson-hope  asked:

I haven't really thought about it but a completely ace or demi Eggsy would be cute as fuck. I mean I can just imagine. He's flirty as fuck so people assume he is interested in sex but when people try to get hot and heavy he's like thanks but nah bruv

I’d be so happy with demi!Eggsy for real. Like, you have a young adult who has probably hidden his real emotions and feelings for as long as Dean’s been around. He doesn’t get close to many people, so he doesn’t notice at first why he isn’t attracted to anyone. He’s too busy surviving at first, and then later on he’s protecting his baby sister.

At first, he assumes maybe he’s just ace or aro? Like, he’s not sexually or romantically inclined towards anyone, so he figures that that’s how he is? But he has no problem putting on a cheeky smile or winking at the older ladies at the store to get by. He hasn’t had much issue with anyone trying to get with him, Dean and his goons have pretty much run his name into the mud with the locals.

But then Kingsman happens, and he’s got to win someone over in the biblical sense? Like what? But he gets through it, because he gets drugged and tied to a train track. And then he gets closer to Harry, and Merlin, and Roxy. Let’s say Harry doesn’t die in Kentucky, and comes back to Eggsy and gives him another chance at being a spy since Chester and a few other Knights are a bit…dead.

So Eggsy gets closer to Harry, Roxy, Merlin. They bond as spy and handler, or as partners, or just off the clock as friends. Merlin takes on the mentor role, explaining the mechanics of being a spy and the gear. Much like a Quartermaster, Eggsy jokes one day and gets a flick in the ear for his troubles.

Roxy becomes his best mate. He’ll always have Jamal and Ryan, but there’s less communication once they pick up odd jobs that conflict with Eggsy’s off hours. Instead, he and Roxy take JB and her poodle to the park, talk about problems with being a Kingsman. Roxy introduces him to a fantastic bar that has a few people “in the know” about Kingsman. It becomes routine for them to hang out after missions to decompress. 

Harry…Harry becomes something. It’s less mentoring now, more friendship. More flirting? Eggsy doesn’t know what to make of it, but he notices that six months after he’s first met Harry, his face grows flush when he hears Harry laugh. There’s a desire to hear Harry talk about the most mundane things. He gets hot when Harry comes up behind him to correct his form during training.

Eggsy’s never experienced anything like this before. Thank god for Roxy, who listens to Eggsy pour out his uncertainess about the situation. Roxy thinks, and mentions something about demisexuality, and Eggsy wonders…is that me? And then he realizes, that maybe he is demisexual. Maybe even demiromantic? Because he’s never had real emotional bonds with anyone who wasn’t his mum or sister. His first real bonds have been with Kingsman, and well, Harry. 

Eggsy doesn’t do anything at first. He doesn’t want to jump into anything, this is all so new to him. Harry catches on after awhile of Eggsy scooting away from him subtlety, of Eggsy begging off to “do an errand for Merlin” even though Elyan or Roxy tends to do those.

Prince Charming's Kiss: A Librarians Fanfiction

My first story in over a year!! All I needed was some homework to procrastinate and some new characters to play with. This originated from a prompt by ahookedheroespureheart. She wanted a story with Cassandra (in the Sleeping Beauty role) in the hospital and Jake kissing her, with discussion of the “brain grape,” and the story came to me almost as soon as I read the prompt.

*****************************************

From the very first day he met her, he knew this would happen someday.

Jacob Stone walked down the stark white hallway that was rapidly becoming his own personal labyrinth. Room 3416 was the object of his quest; that’s where she was. That’s where he would find her…if he could find her, that is.

When he finally stumbled upon the room with the 3416 plaque outside, the sight inside stopped him dead in his tracks. She laid peacefully in the bed, her red hair splayed across the white pillow, a pop of color in the bleak setting. An oxygen tube wrapped around her delicate face, and two tiny sensors were taped on either side of her forehead. A disruptive but steady beeping punctuated the silence and monitored her heart, but despite all of this, the first thing he noticed was the rise and fall of her chest as she continued to breathe, to live.

Something About Us // Snowbarry 

Description // Drabbles reflecting on the women of Barry’s life. 

-

Felicity

Barry is bouncing on the balls of his heels. It’s great, really, because it means he’s less squirmy when it comes to poking and prodding him for tests at the Labs.

She has to thank Felicity Smoak for this. She admires her too, since, like she’s always known, the team has always benefited from a woman’s presence. Namely, today, she is keeping Barry occupied, challenging him to really demonstrate his abilities and take pride in his latest excursions.

‘You two going out for coffee?’ Caitlin is curious, watching the distracted way he’s staring at the blonde across the room.

'Uh, yeah,’ he replies, whipping his head toward her while she patches up his latest injuries. 'Just as friends,’ he feels he needs to add.

She fails to hide the inevitable twist of a knowing smile. ‘I think you two are kinda cute.’

In response, he rubs nervously at his shirt’s front. ‘Caitlin, we’re friends. I mean, I get it. She’s great; she’s into everything that matters to me, she’s kind, and ridiculously cute when she can’t stop rambling. And…’

All she needs to do is share a look with him, an honest look that says she knows what his mind is truly distracted with, and who his mind’s eye is conflicted in seeing instead of Felicity.

I want to talk about Dean and Cas and their relationship, about how they’re not ‘just a ship’, how their bond could be interpreted in various ways - from deep friendship, to kindred spirits, to romance - but how love plays a central part in it in any case. About how they heal each other, care for each other, love each other and get lost without the other. 

Essentially, Dean and Cas matter…

… because Cas looks at Dean’s scars and he understands, he doesn’t judge. He can take Dean’s pain and accept that it’s there - because he knows how much it hurts not to feel understood. Dean needs someone strong enough to carry him for a change - despite all the weight the years have put on his shoulders.

… because when Cas met the Winchesters, he knew next to nothing about humanity, he was a slave to obedience, and at the same time he became more and more estranged to his own brothers and sisters… he got lost in a whirlwind. Then there were the Winchesters, there was Dean. And they took him in - again and again. They gave him purpose and a light to strive toward. They made his existing easier, made his painful transition into finding his own identity more bearable.

… because Cas can see Dean’s faults, his anger, his stubbornness and irritation. But what he sees underneath all that shines so much brighter than any of the destructive crap Dean still insists on arming himself with. What Dean is to him goes beyond comprehension.

… because Cas came to earth a stranger to human emotion after years of drowning out the potential, pushing away the silent but constant yearning inside. Soon enough, Dean made him feel everything. And he still does. Dean sparked his desire for choice and at the end of it all, he will choose himself.  

… because Dean was lost and broken, his humanity crippled and bloodied. Self-loathing was all he knew and chaotic desperation was the fuel that kept him going. Cas gave him hope, fleeting at times, but hope nonetheless. Cas became his friend, his family, part of the little group of people Dean would swear unspoken loyalty to. 

… because Dean needs someone who understands why Sam always comes first. Someone who won’t make him give up on his little brother. Someone who will give him time to figure out his painful habits and memories on his own. Someone who will catch him once the trauma surrounding his dad, his mom, his brother comes crashing down, undoubtedly leaving him boneless and lost. 

… because Dean needs time to heal, time to understand, time to let go. And Cas will never push because he needs his own time too. 

… because even when Dean gave up on life and himself, Cas won’t let him. He means too much and Cas has learnt from his mistakes. 

… because Dean can read Cas like a book and Cas is family - he would give anything to make Cas understand just how significant he is, with or without his powers. Just Cas being Cas. 

… because Cas is kindness and determination and purpose put into one. Because Cas needs someone he knows he can always return to - and he always does, always back to Dean. Cas needs someone who can see him and love him, not Castiel but Cas. He has so much love to give and a deep need to be loved in return, to feel safe in knowing that he’s cared for deeply. In that respect, Dean is exactly the same. 

… because they both need someone to call them out, someone to get angry on their behalf, someone they can get angry with, someone who can take it all, and make them see sense again… but someone who will still be there by the end of it. Someone who is family. 

… because they both know betrayal and hurt and pain beyond measure. They both lived and died, fighting wars inside and outside and in-between. 

… because what they see in each other may be raw and terrifying but at the same time it’s genuine and timeless. What they find with each other is everything. 

… because what they are to each other transcends knowledge and reality - it’s everything they are and know to be. It’s not something either of them knows how to put into words - that’s not who they are. But what they see in the other’s eyes tells a thousand stories and more. One day, they will be strong enough to really look and really see. 

Dean and Cas matter because they both see their own worth reflected in the other. And that means, one day, they will finally understand why they matter outside of the other. It means they will finally have the ground to heal and grow from their past rather than continue being consumed by it. It means they will have a chance to move forward and make their own future - together and on their own.

Hello Ann's ghost! I haven't seen anyone talking about this but Hook also has kind of the same 'superpower' as Emma- knowing when someone is lying... It has worked splendid so far with Charming, Emma and Rumple... Zelena... It's almost as if they're meant to be. Their kids are gonna have a tough time trying to lie to them! (Yes, I went there... muahahaha!)

He really does. They are both incredibly perceptive. 

Hook’s whip-smart and has had an unnaturally long time to study people, to learn and understand the way humans work. I’m sure he put a lot of this effort in to fuel his own agenda, but that doesn’t change the fact that he has now become extremely proficient at reading people. If you watch him, he spends a lot of time watching people, and he also listens extremely carefully. He often sits on the edge of groups, watching people interact with each other. This is not done by coincidence. He’s studying. He’s learning. 

The really beautiful thing about this facet of Killian is how he’s applied it in his relationship with Emma. Since day one, as he told her, she’s been an open book to him. Now, I believe a lot of that was him preening a bit for her as they climbed that beanstalk, and trying to get her to really notice him. But I also believe that as they climbed and he started studying and reading her as he would anyone else, he ended up seeing so much more than he intended. He ended up seeing a kindred spirit in this beautiful, guarded woman. He ended up seeing pieces of himself in her, someone who understood heartache and loneliness. And as he continued to study her as they climbed, he became intrigued and attracted to her in a way he had not been to another person in 300 years. If ever. 

As their relationship has grown, and as Emma has become more and more important to him and he has learned more about her, he still is studying her, but in a different way. Instead of trying to ‘figure her out’ as he was when they met, he now seems to be learning how to be her partner, how to be a part of her life. How he can support what she needs, how he can make her happy. 

Watch him when he and Emma talk. He listens. Intently. He might be the only one who really does, hence why she opens up to him like no one else. He gets that intent look on his face, tilts his head a bit, and just focuses on her. Completely. He rarely interrupts, he doesn’t break eye contact, he just lets her speak her mind. Lets her purge. Sure, he’ll engage her and share how he feels, or push her to continue, but he never shuts her down or dismisses her. He never negates her feelings or opinions. Because he understands her, he knows that is how she’s been treated her entire life. 

Most importantly, he understands that’s not how you treat someone you love. Love inspires you to give and comfort and cherish. To help your mate be happy and their best self. 

So I think you’re right, this shared ‘superpower’ is just another reason they are meant. It’s kept them on equal ground since the beginning, and helped them to trust one another. It’s helped them to see each other just as they are, no illusions or pretenses. And here they are, falling in love and taking on the world together. 

This is how you True Love. This is how you OTP. 

The Parents We (haven't) Left Behind

I’ve seen a lot of discussion on my dash about the ambivalence this episode- this whole season in fact- has presented on the topic of John Winchester.  Castiel asked “Did you love your father?” and Dean said “With everything I have,” before launching into a story about how his father saved him from a shitty situation.  Not exactly the damning condemnation that we might’ve expected given the progress the show has made in deconstructing the brothers’ toxic bond.

But I invite you to consider not just the one scene that directly references John Winchester, but the rest of the episode as well.  Specifically, let’s talk about Claire, and all of her troubles with fatherhood.

I just haven't met you yet.

A long time ago, I asked my mother how she and father got together. I was a curious child, so the concept eluded me. She explained to me that they both loved each other very much, and wanted to be together forever.

I asked her if everyone did this, to which she replied, “I think everyone has someone waiting for them out there. They just haven’t met yet.” I asked if there was someone waiting for me? She replied, “I think so. You just need to find each other.”

Years would go by. I would continually ponder this conversation over and over again. In the end, I would always repeat the same thing to myself.

“Everyone has someone. We just have to find each other.”

More years go by.

I was never into girls. Even to this day I have trouble approaching them normally, even out of mutual contact. I always used to wonder, maybe I’m not talking to them correctly? Maybe I’m too shy? Everyone else seems to be doing it… Maybe I haven’t set my agenda correctly. Am I progressing like I should? Am I putting myself out there enough?

I struggled. I struggled a lot to get the mechanics behind it. Even as friends, girls just never clicked with me. At this point I was pretty content assuming that I just was incapable of loving anyone like everyone else does. So I stopped caring.

Some time goes by.

At this point I’m certain of my sexuality. It seemed to make a lot more sense to me now. I even found myself openly trying to get into relationships with guys. My first relationship was with a guy online. We never met, we only shared phone calls, and it never went farther than that. The feeling we shared though was universal, and it felt great. Like someone out there cared for you. You feel for a little while that you found that someone, and things for a moment seem alright. You feel like you’ve found that last piece that makes you function to your fullest potential.

We eventually broke up. I wasn’t feeling the long distance after a while, and it seemed unnatural… Like, I wasn’t supposed to be doing this. So I stopped. We haven’t spoken since.

I would get into a total of two more online internet relationships, one which lasted a good 3 years. All of them were broken off on the same terms.

I finally sit here, recalling the same words my mother told me.

“Everyone has someone out there waiting for them. They just need to find eachother.”

Yet, I don’t feel like everyone… I feel a bit more complex. My feelings for people have gone as far as crushes, and all I know from that is the pain that digs itself into me when I realize that people don’t always fall for each other. There will always be heart break, and there will always be rejection.

But I feel like I haven’t even felt love at all. I’ve never witnessed a real relationship. I look around me, and I feel like everyone can find someone. Even gays I know in the area seem to pick up happy relationships better than I ever could.

Do I not get out enough? Is there something about me that’s naturally off putting?

Everyone tells me all the time. Even strangers.

They say, “Anyone would be lucky to get a catch like you!”

… Then why haven’t I been caught yet?

Am I supposed to look for something? Am I supposed to go out on my own and find these people?

Friends often tell me that you can’t look for relationships. They just have to happen.

Heh. The confidence I have in that statement.

They just have to happen.

“They just have to find each other.”

I don’t want to sit here and say I’ll never find love. We all know that is never true.

Still. I can’t help but get the feeling that there’s something I’m not doing right. I like myself… I love what I do, even though I’m uncertain about my future, but what human being isn’t?

I don’t know.

For now all I can do is sit and wonder more on this concept and think about what my mom has told me.

I like to think about that someone that I haven’t met yet.

What’re they doing?

Are they having the same thoughts as me?

Are they happy?

I hope they are.

I guess I’ll end this with one of my favorite song lines from a Michael Buble song.

“Somehow I know that it’ll all turn out

You’ll make me work to work it out

I promise you kid to give more than I get

I just haven’t met you yet.”
