i have to study for a big test too

Over Planning = Procrastination

I am making this post based on a request by an anonymous user, but as soon as I heard the idea it really resonated with me. When you are a perfectionist, like I am, procrastination comes very easily. As soon as I have a single doubt about what I am doing, I stop and turn to something else, which leads to a lot of unfinished assignments and unnecessary stress. So in this post, I’m going to give you my best advice on how to avoid this very thing and get back to work! 

Methods of Planning

You  need to start by addressing how you are organizing you time and if it needs to change. 

  1. Daily study schedule: This is my least favourite, and in my opinion leads to the worst kind of overplanning. This is when you schedule out your time hour by hour, down to what time you will study, eat, workout, etc. I understand that this works for some people and if you find yourself to be very disorganized, it can work for you. However, I personally find (and I think many would agree) that it ends up giving me anxiety and guilt when I don’t do something exactly at the right time. 
  2. Weekly or monthly schedule: This is ideal for people who like to plan ahead a lot, but don’t want to be too constricted to an hourly schedule. This method involves writing down what you need to study each day, but not declaring a specific time that you need to have it done by. I really like to use this for exam periods or before a big test, so I know that all the topics are covered by a certain point. 
  3. Daily to-do list schedule: This works for a ton of people I know, including myself. It is low-key, but also allows you to know what you have to do and actually get it done. This is what most people use in a bullet journal, which is obviously a very successful technique! It blends together the planning of the daily schedule with the fluidity and low-stress of the monthly schedule. I highly recommend this if you tend to overplan! 

Overall: You might need to re-evaluate the way that you organize your time and find something that is more productive. My personal favourite is the daily to-do list, but if you need more structure in your life, feel free to look at others. 

Dividing Tasks

One big thing that leads to procrastination is not being able to focus on the most important tasks that need to get done. If you put too much stuff on your to-do list or into your hourly schedule, it might actually end up taking away from more important tasks. 

Learn to prioritize. List tasks in order of their importance when you are creating a to-do list or other type of schedule. You can use a numbering system, or colour code them if you need more help:

  1. Red = Extremely important: Things that are due in the next day or two, studying for upcoming tests, steps in a process that needs to get done by the end of the week, bills that need to be paid, chores that have to get done before your home becomes a wreck. 
  2. Yellow = Pretty important: Things that are important to your schedule, but it wouldn’t be tragic if they got pushed off one more day. Re-writing or typing notes, writing out flashcards for a test a week away, working on an application or deadline that is still a while away, chores that aren’t going to affect you if they aren’t finished tonight. 
  3. Green = Filler stuff: Things that would be nice to get done, but aren’t urgent. Cleaning, organizing your desk, finishing a book or movie for pleasure, etc. 

Avoid Procrastination

After you have organized yourself and prioritized tasks, you need to be able to focus on actually getting them done. 

  1. Set firm deadlines. A lot of times, this is easy because teachers or bosses set them for you. But if they don’t, learn to set your own deadlines and stick to them. Write them in your calendar and make note of them in the days leading up to it. 
  2. Make mini to-do lists for an assignment. If you have trouble following deadlines, or value to-do lists as much as me, breaking down assignments and large tasks into small pieces can be super beneficial. For example, if you have an essay due, create a checklist with the intro, body paragraphs, conclusion, editing, typing, and final draft all as separate tasks. 
  3. Find ideal study setting. A lot of people have trouble focusing on tasks when they get distracted easily. I find it really helpful if I’m in an environment that gets me in a studying mood! Going to the library or a quiet coffee shop really motivates me. Finding somewhere with few distractions, limitations on how much noise you can make, and being able to see other people being productive is the ideal way to focus yourself. 
  4. Avoid social media and TV. This goes hand in hand with #3… Being in front of the TV or the computer (when you aren’t actually using it) is super distracting! Go somewhere that doesn’t have these distractions. 
  5. Start with small tasks. Sometimes, tackling your to-do list is easier if you start by completing a few small tasks. When I’m not in the mood to study, I try to do some household chores and update my bullet journal to get the ball rolling.  
  6. Use the Pomodoro technique, or something similar. Use a Pomodoro timer or another type of scheduling to stay focused when studying and take breaks when needed. If you find that breaking it down minute by minute is too stressful, try setting goals like “as soon as I am done studying this chapter, I will get up and make a snack,” and stick to them! 

1. Not getting enough sleep. You absolutely need sleep. Yes, you might have a big test tomorrow, but chances are you’ll be unable to retain anything late at night after hours of studying anyways. You will most likely get more out of an entire night of sleep than those two extra hours of studying.

2. Unrealistic goals. Don’t make a to-do list you’re certain you won’t finish. Don’t schedule finishing three papers in one evening. Be realistic. Things usually take more time than we think. Looking at long lists of checkboxes unchecked isn’t exactly motivating.

3. Too much coffee. I love coffee. Most of you reading this probably love coffee. But always make sure not to don’t drink too much of it, and don’t drink coffee too late in the evening. If you’re not careful, it can screw up your circadian rhytm. This applies to anything with caffeine, not just coffee. Tea is usually not that bad, since many don’t have caffeine, and the ones who do have quite small amounts, but stay away from the energy drinks.

4. Working in bed. This is something I used to do A LOT, but you can see a significant improvement in the grades I got after being more strict with myself, forcing myself to sit by a desk instead. This is how those 2+ hour naps happen. Find other places you can study and be comfortable at the same time. Just avoid the bed if you want to be productive.

5. Tumblr. Yeah, so this is a bit ironic, considering this is posted on Tumblr, but: when starting a study session, close Tumblr. If you can’t stay off, download a website blocker.

6. Spending too much time planning. Let me explain this: If you spend half the time you have available planning your study session, and then the rest actually studying, you’re probably not all that productive, unless the excessive amount of planning truly makes you a lot more productive in your study session. Plan out your study time quickly, don’t spend too much time on it. You might feel productive, but the goal here is to study, so make sure you actually do.

7. Thinking “I’ll remember this, so I won’t write it down”. No. You will forget this at some point. WRITE IT DOWN. This applies to everything, not just studying and school. Make a note on your phone, in your journal, wherever. Just jot it down somewhere, you’ll be thankful you did.

8. Falling behind. This is not mighty specific, but it is important. Once you fall behind in one subject/class, you’ll most likely fall behind in at least one more. Do a little bit of work every day, and get things done right away (see the next paragraph), and you’ll avoid falling behind! Getting back on track is much harder than just keeping up throughout the year.

9. Not getting things done right away. Most important thing on this list. Received a set of maths practice problems today? Get it done today. Get it out of the way (but don’t rush through it), so you can continue with other things. On the day before it’s supposed to be done, you’ll be so glad you didn’t wait, avoiding an evening of stress trying to get it done.

10. Only writing down things written on the board/Powerpoint. Sure, the key points will usually be here, but the important details are those said out loud by the teacher/lecturer. I know it’s hard to write down things from the board/Powerpoint while also listening and taking notes from what they say, but I’d recommend focusing on taking notes from what they say. The things on the board/Powerpoint are probably key points you already know, or that you can read about in the textbook. The info said out loud might not be.

11. Being afraid to ask questions. If you have a question, ask the teacher/lecturer. Sure, there might be other ways to find the answer, but you’ll probably get a more straight-forward, clear answer from the teacher or lecturer. Also, ask right away, don’t wait. If there is something you don’t understand, going forward with the curriculum will be harder. This one might be hard for many, but try the best you can. If you are graded partially on activity in class or you ever need a reference, asking questions will make your teacher realise you are interested in the subject and learning.

In the end of this post, I’d like to remind all of you how much resources are put into your education. Your country is investing in your education and future. Appreciate the privilege of education. Realise that not everyone gets the opportunities you get, so make sure you’re not wasting them. Wow, this suddenly got very deep. But you know what I mean. 

Hope you got at least some help out of this post! Any questions/feedback? Message me, I’ll be happy to answer any questions and I’d appreciate any feedback! ♥♥

personally, i find starting a new semester is more significant than starting a new year. so i figured i’d write a guide for myself and you guys to succeed. hope ot helps xx

1. recreate your study space

i find having having the same setting on your desk all the time makes you less productive. so what i recommend doing is to recreate your study place by replacing things. if you keep your pens on the right side of desk move them to the left and if you can and things it’ll help you move your whole desk somewhere else.

additionally, clean. clean your desk, your drawers and everything you need for your study. if that still doesn’t work - clean your whole room.

2. set some goals that are not impossible yet not that easy to achieve

in my opinion, you always need some goals to motivate you to do something. i have made the mistake of those goals being too big and unreachable. however, if you do decide to aim for something that seems impossible make sure to put some milestones on the way to reach on the go.

3. do not only study right before a test

this is probably a tip that pretty much everyone has given you already, i know. it was the same with me but weirdly i only learned it after my nutrition teacher told us in 10th grade.

it doesn’t mean that you have to study each subject as hard as you would if you had a test the next day just revise one chapter or a few pages every once in a while.

4. plan your day 

before i decided to get a bullet journal i found this so unnecessary but now i am eager to cross off as many things as i have written down to do each day.

but be careful though. even if crossing off many things is satisfying try not to overschedule yourself. it’s less depressing to have 3 out of 3 things done than to have 5 out of 12 things done.

5. first things first

it may be tempting to do whatever you can cross off easily before all the other things but nevertheless, try to do more important things first especially if they are more time-consuming.

if this is totally impossible for you make sure to at least get started. that way you’ll decrease the risk of procrastination.

6. don’t forget to care about yourself

as a person that gets too obsessed with reaching her goals i often forget to care about myself. please try to avoid making that mistake and plan at least half an hour a day for self care.

7. do some exercises every once in a while to stay fit

try some yoga or pilates for relaxation and against a tense back after spending a day in front of your desk. additionally stretch in the morning to get ready for a successful day.

8. hydration and food

i have learned this very late but hydration is so important. drink some water as soon as you get up and bring something to drink anywhere you go for longer than an hour.

also, i love to snack while i study. despite all those study snack pictures of hummus, fruits and avocado don’t feel guilty if your snack consists of crisps. as long as your nutrition doesn’t consist a 100% of junk food some unhealthy snacks are totally okay.

9. find some motivating stuff

motivation is key to successful studying. as mentioned earlier your motivation can be a goal you want to achieve. however, it can also be a role model or simply a quote.

10. find a way that works for you

i did a masterpost on this some time ago:

- study methods and motivation


In 2008 Ann Rule published one final chapter to her book “The Stranger Beside Me” (originally published in 1980). In this chapter she answers commonly asked questions to the best of her ability with the knowledge she has obtained over the years. 

 Who was Ted’s biological father? 

This has never been absolutely established. His mother, Eleanor Louise Cowell, said simply that Ted’s father was a “sailor.” His birth certificate listed his father as Lloyd Marshall, thirty, an Air Force veteran, a graduate of penn state university. Jack Worthington was another name listed as his father. Born at the Elizabeth Lund Home for Unwed Mothers in Burlington, Vermont, on November 24, 1946, Ted had “illegitimate” stamped on his birth certificate. Many feel that he was a child of incest, fathered by his mother’s father, a man known for his violent temper. To the best of my knowledge, blood samples were never taken to establish or refute this. DNA testing was fifty years in the future. Ted had many names: Cowell, Nelson, Bundy, and all the names he stole from other men to protect his identity when he was on the run. 

 Did Ted Bundy really father a child in prison? 

Yes, I believe he did. A frequent visitor to Raiders Prison in Starke, Florida, told me that prisoners in the early 1980s pooled their money to bribe guards to allow them intimate time alone with their female visitors. Whoever won that lottery did have enough privacy and time to impregnate a wife or girlfriend. Furthermore, the baby girl born to Carole Ann Boone is said to resemble Ted a great deal. 

 Where are Carole Ann Boone and her daughter now?

 I have always tried not to know anything about Ted’s ex-wife (who divorced him before he was executed) and child, feeling that if I had no information, I could never accidentally tell anyone in the media details that would invade their privacy. I have heard that Ted’s daughter is a kind and intelligent young woman– but I have no idea where she and her mother may live. They have been through enough pain. 

 Where are Meg Anders and her daughter, the child who looked upon Ted as a father figure back in the seventies? 

I have also attempted to know very little about Meg and her daughter, who is now around forty. Meg wrote a book, using the pseudonym “Elizabeth Kendall” many years ago. Entitled “The Phantom Prince: My Life with Ted Bundy” and published by a small Seattle press that no longer exists, it has been out of print for years. I was surprised recently to receive a phone call from Liane Anders, Meg’s daughter. Ted had hurt her emotionally, too. In the tangled way humans respond to trauma, Liane said she felt a lingering guilt about the young women Ted killed– as if there might have been some way she could have stopped him from killing. I pointed out that she should have no responsibility whatsoever for what Ted did. She was only a little girl when it all happened, a child who once loved and trusted him. Perhaps one day, she will write about her feelings, and I hope that “Elizabeth Kendall” will see that her book is reissued. 

 Was Ted Bundy ever cleared of homicides he was suspected of? 

Perhaps once or twice– officially. I believed that he had killed Katherine Merry Devine after picking her up in the University District in December 1973– and so did her parents and many detectives. But there was a “sleeper” suspect that Thurston County, Washington, sheriff’s detectives were also watching over the twenty-eight years her murder went unsolved. His name was William E. Cosden and he had a record for rape and a doubtful acquittal on rape and murder charges back in Maryland. In March 2002, DNA retrieved from Katherine Merry’s body and clothing was compared to Cosden’s and it was a definite match. Cosden had believed he skated away clear. He had been visiting relatives who owned a service station in Olympia when the fourteen-year-old hopped down from the ride she had gotten from Seattle. He met her there in the gas station/truckers’ stop, and she trusted him. Cosden is now safely locked away in prison. 

 Wasn’t Ted Bundy really nice…. underneath? 


 Were you ever afraid when you were with Ted Bundy– especially all alone at the crisis clinic all night long? 

Again, the answer is no. I had always prided myself on my ability to detect aberrance in other humans– both because I had that innate skill and through experience and training. And I have berated myself silently for a long time because I saw nothing threatening or disturbing in Ted’s façade. He was very kind to me, solicitous of my safety, and seemingly empathetic. 

 The only clue I had was that my dog– who liked everyone– didn’t like Ted at all. Whenever he bent over my desk at the crisis clinic, she growled and the hackles on her neck stood up. The lesson is clear: pay attention to your dog! 

 Don’t you think that Ted Bundy should have been kept alive– and studied by psychiatrists while he served life in prison? 

No, I don’t. Ted would have found a way to escape again, and he would have been more dangerous than ever. He fooled any number of intelligent, experienced people– including myself– and he was fully capable of doing it again and again. That was too big a risk to take. 

 What was Ted’s I.Q.? 

It was 124 on the Standard Wechsler-Bellevue. Enough to graduate from college and obtain further degrees. However, he never tested at the genius level. 

 Where is Ted Bundy buried? 

No one but those closest to him knows. His body was cremated, and he had asked to have his ashes scattered in the Cascade Mountains in Washington State. This was probably a wise choice, as a recognizable grave would be in danger of being desecrated. 

 I have read in numerous print (that) in July 1986, Bundy’s execution was stayed just fifteen minutes before it was to take place. And then again in October, his execution was stayed just seven hours before. Are these accounts accurate or just media sensation? And equally important, if Ted Bundy had only fifteen minutes or seven hours to live, why did he not confess until January 1989? Did his attorneys assure him that he would not be executed? Why did he wait and not pull this card in 1986? How did he know he wouldn’t be executed then? 

First of all, he did not come within fifteen minutes of execution in July 1986; it was fifteen hours. He did come within seven hours of dying in November that year. His attorneys had filed eighteen appeals. I think he had begun to feel invincible– that there would always be another chance. He could not have known absolutely, however, that he wouldn’t sit in Old Sparky on each date set. He took a chance, and he won again. However, neither I nor anyone else could say then– or now–what Ted was thinking. And this brings us to the most omnipresent question of all: What was Ted Bundy really like? I don’t know. He was so many things to different people. He was an actor, a liar, a thief, a killer, a schemer, a stalker, a charmer, intelligent but not brilliant, and doomed. I don’t think even Ted knew what he was really like.

Big Bang's reactions to their sassy gf

[GIFs not mine]



Thank you all for waiting for my late update! I’ve benn studying hard and taking those tests seriously. I only have 3 more to go. I hope you are doing good in school/ work too~

Thank you again for reading my reactions!

You were outside at the party and had a lot of fun when a woman came and started talking with you. He was next to you talking to her boyfriend and drinking wine together. He was smiling and having fun but you had some difficult with understanding what that woman wants from you. When her boyfriend and T.O.P were looking away or weren’t near she just started talking how she uses her boyfriend only for money and then when they came back she started talking how great he is and how he treats her well. You had enough listening to her and when they came back you said:
“Sweetie, if you’re gonna be two faced at least make one of them pretty.”
The woman and her boyfriend offended walked away and T.O.P scolded you for saying such mean things to a person but in the car later he laughed so hard you couldn’t stop him. He really adored your sarcasm and your sassy attitude. He especially liked when you would reply to mean comments with your swag and make those people take back his words. He was happy because you were sassy you didn’t let other people judge you or make bad comments about you.

Jiyong just came home late at night from the airport where he flew from the USA. He was really tired and because of his work he was a little depressed. You really wanted to cheer him up so you made him the best coffee and let him tell you about his business trip. He also brought you a gift, a shirt with a caption ‘swag’ on it. He was glad you liked it but he was exhausted so you let him go shower. Right before he went to bed you wishpered to him:
“Don’t be ashamed of who you are. That’s your parents job.”
When you said that to him he smiled and kissed you on your cheeks. He remembered why he loves you so much- because of your awful sarcastic jokes and amazing love you always showed him. He fell asleep hugging you and with a shining smile on his face.

You were working on your college studying and took a short break when he came home. He told you how your studying is important to him and how you must be successful in college so you will get a good job. He kept saying how proud will he be if you get A’s on the tests. He kept worrying about the marks you’ll get and it was getting pretty annoying to you. While you ate a strawberry in kitchen he came again and you put your finger to his mouth to keep him shut.
“The only BS in my life are bags and shoes.”
He was quite surprised by your words and he understood he might be too annoying with all those words but he still laughed at the sarcastic voice of yours, because he thought it was funny. He thought it was funny and cute when you made sassy statements like those.

After your busy day at work you came home finding Daesung playing drums. When he saw you came home he started a conversation. You were always happy to talk with him and see him but today was one of your bad days. You did talk with him and when he inturrupted you sentance and spoke on you stared at him for a moment and than added:
“Oh, I’m sorry, did the middle of my sentence interrupt your begining?”
He was offended by your words and apologized for interrupting your talking. He felt bad because of that and went in the bedroom to chill and relax. He kept thinking why you would get so upset over such a thing, although it was rude. You realized your words may have been too much and apologized to him too.

You are both a king and a queen of sass. He always got your sassy statements about clothes or movies. As you were walking in the shopping mall you saw some cute dresses and ordered him to tell you how you look. You predicted he wouldn’t like shopping a lot but he was just fine watching you in a different dresses. One was glittery and another one was all pink. He said both suits you but the pink one is sexier.
“Some girls are just born with glitter in their veins”
He couldn’t help but to cringe at your statement. He was proud you realized how beautiful you are and to make sure everyone else sees that he bought you the pink dress, because you already have enough glitter in you veins

“Scott? Hey, I didn’t know you were in this class.” You said as you moved your backpack off the seat next to yours in the large and loud lecture hall.

“Yea, I saw you walk out the other day, realized you were in the class with me and so I thought I’d sit with you if that’s okay.” Scott asked politely.

“Please. So how was patrol last night?” You asked in a more hushed tone.

“Good, good…” Scott nodded, trying to convince you and himself. “Actually it sucked.”

“Did someone get hurt?” You inquired, concerned.

“No..” Scott rubbed at his face. “No, uh, you know how we were talking about a girl named Kira the other night at the coffee shop?”

You nodded. “The uh, kitsune.. the one that goes to SFSU?”

“Yea, that’s her. She’s my ex. We, uh, we dated in high school for a while and she was having trouble controlling her powers so she went away for a bit. Then when we all found out that we were going to colleges near each other, I thought that we could get back together. We hung out a little over Christmas break, but didn’t get to the level I wanted.”

“So what happened last night? Did she actually show up to patrol with you this time?” You wondered aloud.

“Yea, she did, and we got into a huge fight. It turns out that she met a guy at orientation over the summer at San Fran State and they’d been dating ever since but she was too afraid to tell me so when she came to Beacon Hills for Christmas break, we hung out and she kept stringing me along and I thought that we had a chance of getting back together and then she kept ghosting me when we came back to school. Last night she asked me to bring this thing that she gave me back in high school, and she came to patrol with me and she told me the whole story about her boyfriend and it was just…. It sucked.” Scott said, sipping his coffee, and rubbing the underside of his nose.

“God… Scott, that’s so shitty. Are you okay?”

“Yea, I just, I guess I’m most disappointed that because her boyfriend doesn’t know about who she really is, and she doesn’t want him to know, she said that she doesn’t want to keep helping us.”

“Well, I don’t know her but it kind of sounds like even if she was around, she wouldn’t have been much help anyway. She doesn’t sound very brave.” You reasoned, trying to make Scott feel better.

“She used to be brave. I don’t know what she is now…. What about you, Y/N, are you seeing anyone?” Scott asked, changing the subject.

“Uh, no, pretty single.” You fake laughed. “What about everyone else?”

“Uh, Lydia, the one with the red hair, she is dating Jordan Parrish, who you haven’t met yet, but he lives in Beacon Hills. He’s a sheriff’s deputy and a hellhound.”

“Oh… okay.” You remarked, surprised over the supernatural diversity of their group.

Scott continued. “Isaac and Cora have been dating since October. But the rest of us, me, Malia, Ethan, and Stiles, we’re all single.”

“Stiles is?” You asked quietly.

“Yea.. he is. Why do you like him?” Scott grinned a crooked grin.

You chuckled. “Scott, you are his best friend. I wouldn’t tell you even if I did. I know where you’re allegiances lie.”

You stuffed your potions paperwork back into your briefcase, brushing your bangs out of your eyes and recollecting your thoughts. There was no clock in the Hufflepuff common room, but you didn’t need one to know it was late. Much later than a third year like yourself should be staying up. Yet here you were. And you know what could make you feel a hell of a lot better now? That fluffy brown hair. Those freckles and that wide goofy grin. You could listen to that boy all day. You could…

No, you willed your thoughts to halt, and clapped your hands down on the desk.

“No…” you swiftly pulled out the next set of paperwork, banishing any thoughts that weren’t related to polyjuice potions and proper cauldron cleaning.

You would often get on Newt for forgetting to clean his cauldron. He, of course, would assure you there was nothing to be worried about.

And it would blow up in his face every time. Quite literally.

You smiled fondly.

“Sporting a grin I see, may I ask why?” you hear that all too familiar voice call.

“Newt” you yelp in surprise, the papers you were holding were suddenly airborne.

“That’s me. May I ask, what are you still doing awake?” his puppy dog eyes squinted in concern. “It’s well past midnight”

“Is it? Why I haven’t even finished studying! This is all your fault anyway, for keeping  me up with those fascinating drawings of yours” You giggled in an attempt to wipe the worry off his face, but somehow your hysteria seemed to frighten him even more.

What? It’s not like you were drun-

“(Y/N) we have a big potions test tomorrow, the time for cramming has come and past.”

“You see Mister Scamander, there will always be a time for cramming” His smile widened, causing your’s too as well. Damn, this boy’s charisma was infectious.

“While I find our debates quite amusing, I’m afraid your well being must come first. Now go to sleep” He began to bend over and pick the discarded potions papers off the floor, most of which were either blank or covered in red marks. He studied one of your papers closely, eyebrows furrowed and nose scrunched. You couldn’t help but stare at how his eyes always maintained its light, even at God-knows-when at night.

“Why have you never asked me for help? (Y/N), we’re in this class together, how did I not know you were struggling?” Your attention was suddenly turned to the crisp paper in his hands, dread filling every crevice in your body.

“Oh my God I’m going to fail…” the realization dawned on you.

“Oh my God oh my God I’m going to stay at Hogwarts ‘till I’m thirty” you gathered your hair in your fists, staring off into nowhere in particular. “Newt I’m going to throw myself off the Astronomy tower.”

He suddenly rushed over to you, sensing your panic, and wrapped his warm hands around your wrists, trying to whisper any words of comfort. But you refused to meet his gaze.

“No, (Y/N), you’re not going to fail. It’s only one exam, you’re going to be fine. We are going to graduate and travel the world together. You, me, and who knows what else?! Maybe we’ll find a Niffler, how cool would that be? (Y/N) Look at me” You smile fondly at your best friend’s words, and turned your head in his direction easily.

“Maybe tomorrow won’t go so brilliantly, but I promise you will get a perfect score on the next exam. We will study for hours, just you and me, how does that sound? All you need is rest. Can you do that for me?” Your eyes wander down to Newt’s hands, still entrapping your wrists in the gentlest of grips.

“You always know what to say, Newt”

“I’ll take that as a yes. Now, I would carry you to your bed but I’m afraid that involves trespassing to places with cooties.” You let out a soft ‘pffft’  and ruffle his curly hair, making his freckled cheeks blush in embarrassment.

“Alright alright, only if you get to sleep too. That reminds me…why were you up Mr. Scamander at such an ungodly hour?” He pauses.

“I was…thinking” he admits, tilting his head to the side like a dog.

“About what?”

“About things. The future, our future, really.” Your sleep deprived mind was suddenly picked with curiosity.

“Our future? Tell me Newt, what lies in our future?” There was that grin again, and he ducked his head to hide his teeth.

“All the places we would visit. I was thinking we could start with Japan. I heard Occamies are native to the land, but I doubt we’d be able to find any.”

“Nonsense” you replied, your mind in a bit of a haze.

“I bet we’ll find a whole family with your luck! I can’t wait.”

“Yes, all of that is waiting for us if you go to sleep and not fail third year potions.” He then leaned down and pressed a kiss against your forehead, making your entire face heat up.

“You’re an asshole” you tease, attempting to swipe at him, but he was already up and out of the way.

“Goodnight (Y/N)” he called once again before disappearing up the staircase, leaving you with nothing but a dreamy feeling and a blush as red as a lobster.

You did end up lugging yourself to your bed half an hour later, instantly falling asleep as your head hit the pillow.

And you dreamed…

And you dreamed about Japan.

And you dreamed about Newt.

-Four Years Later-

“Newt! Come on we’re going to miss the train!” You called to your boyfriend as he scurried down the platform, his ridiculous blue coat and Hufflepuff scarf flapping in the wind.

“I’m coming! I’m coming don’t leave without me!” He finally caught up to you and the luggage, sweat visibly forming under his curly brown bangs.

You couldn’t help the smile widening across your face.

“And he crosses the finish line with two minutes to spare!” you exclaim, lifting his arm in the air in a display of victory.

“Stop that, people are looking” he blushed as he pulled his arm back down, looking around at the many pairs of eyes resting on the two of you.

“Oh that’s probably because of your ridiculous blue coat. I begged you not to buy that, you’re going to stick out of Japan like a sore thumb” you thumb the sleeve of his new woolen garb. He then proceeded to pout and rub his arm self consciously.

“I thought it looked dashing”

You reach for his shoulders and raise yourself onto your toes, planting a small kiss on his cheek.

“Of course you look dashing, I was only teasing. Besides, you’ll match the Occamies”

He scoffed, averting his eyes from you to the newly arrived train, a blush forming around his freckles.

“I doubt we’ll find any.”

“Nonsense, I bet we’ll even find an entire family with your luck!” His eyes suddenly brightened with a sense of recognition.

“Well that sounds familiar. Didn’t you say that to me four years ago when you were cramming like mad for a portions test?” You nod, blushing like an idiot.

Oh, you remember that night.

“Yes, I recall you gave me a kiss that night and gushed about our future.”

“Something like that…” he trailed off, staring off into the distance like he was remembering something. Your placed your hand under his chin, tilting his face down to meet your gaze, and you smiled so wide your eyes crinkled at the sides.

“I remember you said we would go to Japan together. Little did you know ‘together’ meant more that you thought”

“Little did I know…” he repeated, his eyes filled with something you couldn’t describe with anything but love.

“Now come on love, we have a train to catch”

BTS REACTION: Girlfriend stressing out over grades. *Request*

“Hello sweetie, 
Can i have a reaction to bts girlfriend stressing out over grades?”

JIN would give you advice and tell you not to stress too much. As long as you’re trying your best and doing the things that need to be done everything will be okay. He’d cook a big dinner for the both of you guys. Then, he’d insist you guys marathon your favorite tv show as you guys cuddle on the sofa. He might even throw in a dad joke.

RAP MONSTER would help you study all the things you didn’t understand in the classes you have bad grades in. He would even test you on the things you just learned. He wouldn’t want you to get bored, so every question you answered correctly you would get a kiss on the cheek. After studying, he’d give you a lecture about how your grades don’t define you as a person and that stress is a good motivator and builds character. He’d give you a big hug and ask you another question just to make sure you learned something.

SUGA would blame the grades on your teacher being dumb. He’d insist on knowing what assignments you got bad grades on. Which usually ended up with him blaming the teacher for giving you something that is too hard. After his mini rant, he’d lead you to the bed and ask if you wanted to listen to music and cuddle. You both would lay there in silence and  drown your thoughts in music.

J-HOPE would try to get your mind off it by being obnoxiously cute and entertaining you. He’d take you to an amusement park and even get on some rides just for you. After a while you wouldn’t even remember what you were stressed about. After he refused to go on anymore rides, you’d both sit on a bench, watch everyone pass by, and feed each other ice cream.

JIMIN would lightly make fun of you to try to turn this negative into a positive. He would also let you rant to him as he just listens and responds when asked a question. He wants you to just let it out and he doesn’t mind being the person you come to for that. In the end, he rather have you talk to him for a few hours about what is bothering you, than to hold it in.

Originally posted by sweaterpawsjimin

V would ask you if there was anything he can do to make you feel better. Not only would he do just that, but he’d go above and beyond just to see you smile. Somehow you guys would end up playing a video game all night long until you both ended up falling asleep on the floor next to each other.

Originally posted by gravitaetion

JUNGKOOK would sympathize with you, because he just graduated and was stressed out himself. He would order you both some take out to eat while you guys talk about your situation. Somehow you would end up talking about other bad school experiences you had. Which lead to opening up about other things in your life. By the end you had a better understanding of each other and didn’t even remember what started the conversation in the first place.

  • he’s like the sweet gentle type that you date for a long time, take home to your parents, plan your future out with ya feel
  • unlike the rest of my boyfriend scenarios, i really like the idea of mark being like normal mark
  • not famous, going to school mark
  • now you meet mark bc you two happen to take a really obscure class together
  • like,,, there’s maybe ten people in the entire class (you’re kind of lost as to why it even exists tbh)
  • but hey, it’s the only alternative for another class you didn’t make the roster for, so you’ll take what you can get
  • on your first day there, there’s only like three people in the entire lecture hall so you’re confused af
  • you end up walking up to the first person you see and you’re like “yo, i’m here for my class but i think i have the wrong place”
  • the person’s head is hung down as they write out something in their notebook
  • but then they look up
  • you’re momentarily shocked by how pretty this person is bc like… damn
  • he smiles like “oh hey, yeah this is the place. don’t worry, it’s this small all the time. i’m mark” 
  • and he holds his hand out for you to shake and as soon as you touch palms you have to hide your shocked expression bc!! boy has some soft ass hands!!!
  • besides the callouses on his fingers his touch is as gentle as his smile
  • you tell him your name through a strangled breath and he repeats it to himself before smiling at you again and you’re still trying to figure out how someone could be this nice and beautiful
  • “do you want to sit next to me? i can help you catch up on anything you need help with” he offers, but he’s already pulling out the seat next to him and how could u refuse hah..haha
  • you plop in that seat so fast
  • you two end up going over his notes for all of three minutes before he starts inquiring about you and your major and your plans for the future
  • in fact you two are so lost in what you’re talking abt that you only realize the professor is there when she drops a book on yours and mark’s desk with a raised eyebrow like “yall done”
  • you and mark are blushing so hard lmao
  • throughout the whole class tho, you can’t really focus on anything besides mark beside you
  • you notice every time he moves, or every puff of breath that leaves him when he’s focused on writing down the professor’s words as she barrels through her lecture at lightning speed
  • when the class is over, you’re all over the place bc you only managed to capture half of what she said and you couldn’t put any of the information you had into something comprehensible
  • you stand next to your desk with a pout on your lips, not noticing until his breath is on your shoulder that mark is peeking at your notes
  • “that doesn’t look very… that isn’t exactly… do you need some help?” mark is so disheartened looking at your notes that he literally can’t help offering his own to you
  • but you’re so thankful and you’re like “thank you thank you!!! how can I repay you?”
  • and mark is pretty adamant that you don’t need to pay him back, that he’s just being a helpful classmate, but then as you’re taking pictures of his notes he just,,, “do you wanna go on a date? i-i mean a study date. you know. to study. the material. for school”
  • of course you can’t say no to the cute blush on his cheeks and the stutter in his words and omg is he biting his lip what the fu
  • “totally!! i’ll give you my number and you can text me whenever you’re free” 
  • you two exchange numbers and you’re on your way
  • this turns out to be a mistake bc it’s only twenty minutes later when you’re headed to your next class and all you can think about is him
  • your hands keep fiddling with your phone and even your friend in that class is like “are u good”
  • you wanna text him so bad tbh but like you dont want to be weird or anything
  • and then like as soon as you get out of class to go get lunch your phone buzzes and you nearly get whiplash from how fast you look at your phone
  • mark: are you busy later? its never too late to start studying
  • i mean… you just got out of that class like two hours ago but oF COURSE MARK YOU’D LOVE TO
  • you’re not even surprised when the entire study date turns into you two just getting to know each other
  • he tells you about how he loves music, how his roommate jackson is always trying to get him out of his shell and it kind of hits you that mark isn’t the type to do things like this
  • the fact that he’s stepped out of his comfort zone to hang with you is so endearing that you kind of just sit your chin in your palm and watch him lovingly as he talks about his interests and you’re pretty sure “i’m so attracted to you??” is written across your forehead but you don’t even care
  • at the end of the date, he walks you back to your dorm, and before you can disappear into your room, he grabs at your hand gently
  • his hold is unsure, but he looks determined, even if he’s incapable of making eye contact
  • “was it just me or was today more of a date than it was studying?”
  • you just nod, your smile widening as he rubs the back of his neck when his palm grows sweaty in yours
  • “would you… maybe like to do that again? the date part of course. i mean we can study too if you’d like, honestly as long as we’re hanging out-” “I’d love to mark”
  • it’s official, you’re dating!!
  • you’re surprised how quickly you fall for mark too
  • weeks pass and you two basically spend every waking minute together
  • if you aren’t physically beside each other, you’re texting, or calling, or thinking about the other
  • while you two haven’t had the talk abt official titles, you secretly look at each other like that
  • it’s only evident one day when you’re talking to jackson, in his and mark’s dorm room while mark gets dressed for your date
  • jackson is telling you how he’s known mark for a while now and he’s never seen him act the way he does when he’s with you
  • “i think he’s really serious about you… but are you serious about him?” jackson asks, and you can’t hate him for asking bc you know how protective he is of his best friend
  • but his question is so out of the blue that you take a minute to think about it, your mind kinda lost on you as you try to think up a satisfactory answer
  • and then it all becomes clear to you, like a cloud parted over your feelings
  • “i’m really serious about him. it’s early but… i think i really want to be with him for a long time. he makes me feel so warm and happy and he’s not like any guy i’ve ever known. i feel like mark… is the one”
  • and then a smile cracks across jackson’s face before he turns his head to something behind you, and you turn your attention over your shoulder to see mark smiling with literal stars in his eyes 
  • “you were right mark. she passed my test”
  • when you realize what’s going on your cheeks immediately start burning, and you deliver a few blows to mark’s shoulder but even through the pain and complaining he can’t stop how happy he is
  • he keeps the cheesy smile the whole night oml you have to kiss him just to get him to stop
  • besides mark being the cutest boy ever he’s also a little (big) shit
  • always playing some kind of a prank on you
  • one time he convinces you he’s turned your favorite white sweater green with a picture of said sweater looking bright lime 
  • and you’re so mad but he just smiles at you and flutters his eyelashes like “im sorry, you still love me right??” 
  • and of course you’re still mad but you reassure him with a forehead kiss and then he laughs and goes “i didn’t ruin your sweater, youngjae helped me photoshop it so it looked like i did”
  • he gets so many bruises that day
  • but his friends make up for it by teasing the shit out of mark
  • his friend jinyoung has a plethora of embarrassing stories about mark that you could just sit there for hours listening to how mark broke his finger playing bop it
  • mark’s youngest friends, dance majors yugyeom and bambam and computer science major youngjae see mark as the older bro of their friend group as mark is the oldest, so they kinda see you as their older sister
  • therefore, you are not unaccustomed to unannounced visits from the three at all hours of the day
  • yugyeom is always asking you to criticize his dances, bambam always asks you to help him study, and youngjae honestly just comes over to sleep bc his roommate is super loud and he never gets a moment of peace
  • in return, you use them for everything
  • all you have to do is say “do this” and they’ll do it bc they love u so much and they have to pay you back somehow for how much they bother you
  • even when mark is over and you two are trying to have some time alone they’ll still stop by and won’t leave despite all the urging to
  • the amount of times you have to call either jaebum or jinyoung to save you has gotten out of hand
  • but even then you don’t mind bc honestly they’re like family to you now, and you love them too much to ever hate being around them
  • in turn, mark is really aware of how special you are to him and he makes sure he lets you know
  • if you’re sick, mark is skipping all his classes to take care of you
  • even if you protest he cannot be persuaded
  • if he really can’t miss a class or has an exam tho, he’ll send one of the boys to take care of you and of course they do so at the drop of a hat
  • makes sure you’re caught up in schoolwork, and always offers to help you study for big tests bc he knows you have a hard time doing so by yourself
  • if you’re too lazy to go grocery shopping he has no prob going out and doing it for you
  • he’s just such a doting bf like he doesn’t mind doing whatever you need done
  • even tho he doesn’t always say “i love you” with words, you can tell just by how he treats you
  • he says i love you when he asks if you’ve gotten enough sleep in the middle of class, and when you shake your head no, he lets you nap and promises to explain the lesson to you later
  • he says i love you when he makes you dinner bc he knows you’re too busy with homework to make it for yourself
  • he says i love you in all of his own little ways
  • but when he does remember to say it, it’s always said with such warmth and fondness that you have to take a second to collect yourself from the utter cuteness before you say it back
  • overall, mark is a loving, caring bf and he’s the best never let him go

other boyfriend!got7:



you could do better // brett talbot

pairings: brett talbot x reader

warnings: Low Self Esteem (?)

a/n: I am suffering from major writers block and being extremely busy with school and dance so sorry for the lack of imagines ;

You and Lydia were sitting on the bleachers watching the guys practice,

It was your free period and Brett loved it when you came to watch him practice.

He would always try to show off in front of you,

Sending winks and smirks your way that cause your cheeks to blush and your heart to race.

You looked at him in adoring eyes,

But for a while now you have been having a thought in the back of your head;

You kept thinking why he was with you,

Why he even likes you,

You didn’t understand.

You knew he could find another girl who was prettier than you and probably smarter and more social.

You were quite shy and if it weren’t for Lydia you would have probably been a total outcast by now.

“Y/N” Lydia snaps her fingers in front of your face to grab your attention.

“Hm?” You ask trying to play it off.

“What’s wrong? I can tell something’s on your mind.”

“N-Nothing, I’m just really tired.”

“Sure” She said sarcastically.

“Really, I am exhausted.” You said with a slight chuckle.

“Okay, I’m sure.”

“Fine, don’t believe me.”

“Y/N I know something is wrong, You can tell me anything you know that right?”

“Yeah, Yeah I know.”

You look back to the field to see the guys packing up and walking towards the locker rooms.

You and Lydia walk back to the school as you feel a pair of strong arms snake around your waist as Brett leans his head on your shoulder giving you a kiss on your cheek.

“Heyyyy” You said in a soft voice as you turned around to face him.

“And hello to you too.” He said before pressing his soft lips against yours in a short but loving kiss.

“I’m glad you came to see me practice.” He smiled down at you.

“And I enjoyed watching you.” You said as he bit his lower lip.

“Wanna come over to study? We do have a big test in two days.”

“I’d love to.”

“I’ll meet you after school, wait next to your locker I’ll meet you there.”

“Okay” You giggled as you leaned in to press yet another kiss on his lips.

A couple seconds later and the bell causes you two to break apart from each other in frustration.

“Meet you later.” He said kissing the top of your head before you two parted ways to your classes.

Three periods later and your day was finally over.

You were at your locker putting back the books from your previous lesson and taking out your books to study with Brett.

As your eyes wandered around the hall your sight landed on Brett,

He was talking to another girl,

Her name was Emily and she was quite a good friend of yours.

You didn’t think to much of it considering you knew they were partnered for a project they had in Biology but another thought came to your mind;

You watched the two talking,

He was the popular jock,

everyone wanted to either be him or with him,

She was blonde and tall,

She looked amazing.

You felt a sadness run through your body,

You knew he could easily find someone better than you,

That he could leave you in a second,

That it would crush your heart.

You went back to putting your books back in your locker as you felt Brett coming your way.

“Hey.” He said kissing the top of your head and then leaning back on the locker next to yours.

“Hey.” You smiled at him trying to conceal the feelings that lingered in your mind from the thoughts of him leaving you.

Brett sensed something was off,

He noticed the scent of sadness washing over you.

“Is everything okay?” He said in a soothing voice.

“Yeah, I’m fine.” You said faking a smile as you closed your locker.

Brett held your hand in his as you two walked over to his car before driving over to his place.

You sat on his bed staring at the multiple equations laid before your eyes,

Brett sat next to his desk trying just like you to try to understand what the hell these numbers are saying.

You started writing down an equation but started scribbling over it because of a wrong answer, You laid down your notebook and groaned in frustration,

Your actions caught Bretts attention as his head whipped your way.

He got up and moved your books aside and sat infront of you,

You fumbled with your fingers as your head looked down avoiding eye contact with Brett.

“You okay? You’ve been really quiet ever since we got here.”

“Yeah I told you I was fine” You looked to the side before looking  back down at your hands.

“Talk to me, I know somethings wrong.” He said holding your hand in his as his thumb lightly stroked your hand in a slightly calming way.

“Well-“ You started.

“I saw you with Emily today and it made me think,

I’m scared that one day you won’t love me anymore,

That one day you will see through my flaws,

Actually see through them and decide that you don’t like it after all,

And that me laughing too loudly and sometimes fumbling with words will start to become something you won’t find appealing anymore.

But thats not all, I’m terrified of the day that you’ll leave,

Just like everyone else did when they finally realised what kind of a mess I am.

They say if you love something let it go but please Brett don’t let me go.”

“I just don’t see what you see in me, Why do you even bother to be with me?”

You took a deep breath,

Brett was listening to you intensely,

Hearing every word you had to say and you could tell by the look in his eyes it broke his heart hearing this from you.

His eyes were admiring and loving but you could see a sadness in them.

He held up his hand to your cheek stroking it lightly before moving to your chin to lift your head so you could face him.

“Y/N, it breaks my heart hearing these words, knowing this is how you feel.

To be honest I’ve never seen a girl like you before,

I’ve never laid eyes on anyone as gorgeous as you I mean your body, the way you look makes me weak.

But thats not why I fell for you,

I fell in love with you because of the person that you are,

Your loving and passionate heart,

The way you smile, God Y/N looking at your smile makes my day.

You might be shy and quiet but you’re passionate and funny, You make sure no one ever feels alone or sad,

Y/N, I love you and I will never leave you.

There is no one better than you, You complete me,

You are my both my strength and my weakness.”

You looked into the green eyes you adored and felt a smile creep upon your lips.

You wrapped you hands around his neck as he pulled you closer to I’m by your waist,

Your head resting in the crook of his neck as he held you tight.

“I love you..” You whispered faintly.

“I love you too” He said placing a kiss on the top of your head.

“And I always will.”

Good Girl Ch 38: Sunshine and Rainbows Turned Into A Cloudy Day (M)


Kai and Sehun don’t even try to hide their giggles when I walk out of the closet. Their eyes turn into slits as they start laughing making me huff cutely before turning on my heel to walk back in to change. Kai manages to catch me and pull me into a hug.

“Sorry baby, but you just look so cute!” He coos at me. I pout when he holds me at arms length, eyeing me up and down as he licks his lips. I can’t help but blush under his gaze. The white baby doll dress they forced me into makes me look really little and cute, which is what they wanted of course.

“Hyung, stop looking like you are about to eat her, this is for Chen hyung,” Sehun snatches me away. I let the younger man drag me down the hall towards Chen’s room. In my thigh high stockings I’m easily pulled along to the door where Sehun quickly knocks before rushing back down the hall faster than I’ve ever seen him move. Worry washes over me at not just his actions but the way they all have been acting with Chen. Apparently there was some big test today that he was too busy to study for and he didn’t think he did well on it. I’ve also found out that only two things can really stress him out, his grades and me. And with me being gone the whole weekend not to mention the, um, business stuff they did he is really stressed.

In fact he hasn’t left his room since I’ve been home, he’s locked himself in for the whole night before storming off to class by himself when he usually rides with Baekhyun to school. Guilt is rocking me for making him worry and stress so much, which made it easy for Sehun and Kai to talk me into doing this for him. So now here I am standing in front of his door, basically shaking in my socks at the thought of him possibly being mad at me for possibly bombing his test. And when the door flies open and he’s standing there with a scowl on his face, in that moment I’m ready to start crying and apologizing. But only for that moment.

His face softens as the sight of me, his eyes scan me up and down taking in the stupid outfit I put on for him. A small smile appears on his face, “Baby.”

I give him my best smile before spinning around in a little circle, “Do you like it?”

“Oh, I love it! You look so cute! Who picked this out?” Chen pulls me into his room, making sure to close and lock the door behind me.

“This is the one daddy Kai picked out when I went shopping for a birthday dress.”

“And you’re actually wearing it? I would have picked something like this if I didn’t think you would have rejected it.”

“Do you really like it that much?” I giggle at the massive grin that grew on his face.

“I love you in that dress that much,” He pulls me close and kisses me softly.

When he pulls away I smile sadly at him, “I’m sorry about your test.”

“It’s okay baby,” He quickly pushes the thought away, far too focused on my to even think back to the test. “I can retake it, hell I could drop out if I wanted to.”

“You’re just saying that because you are distracted by something else.”

“I am very focused right now,” He mumbles unable to take his eyes away from me. “How would feel about keeping the dress on?”

“I can where it for as long as you want, I just kind of figured you’d want to, um…” I blush, still unable to say it.

“Oh, I do,” He doesn’t explain further, he just pulls me back in for another kiss, this one is a little less innocent. I wrap my arms around his neck and smile into the kiss when he picks me up and carries me over to the bed. His attempt to set me down doesn’t work well when I’m able to roll us over so I’m giggling on top of him. “You’ve put on a little weight haven’t you,” He teases as he feels up my thighs that are straddling his waist.

“Daddy that’s mean! I’m trying to be sexy for you,” I swat at his chest only to have him catch my hands in one of his and flip us over so he’s on top.

He chuckles at the little whine that escapes my lips, “I’m not being mean, and you are doing a very good job being sexy for me. I’m happy you are putting some much-needed meat on your bones. Your thighs are so full, I can’t see your ribs anymore when I give you a bath, I’m happy you don’t look like a skeleton anymore.”

“Daddy, I’m supposed to be making you feel better, not the other way around,” I buck my hips against his making the man groan.

“This is making me feel good. I just want you to know how much you are wanted and needed here. You were gone for a weekend, not even a full 48 hours and I couldn’t focus on anything but you.” He sighs before leaning in and burying his face in the crook of my neck. “I love you.”

“I love you too,” I leave a trail of kisses down his neck. “But now stop with this fluffiness. Where is my silly daddy who can hardly ever keep a straight face?”

He leans back with a smile on his face, “Okay, I’m done, now back to the little hip thrusts you were doing before.”

“You mean these?” I buck against him again.

“Exactly,” He grins as he kisses me a few times as his hands slide up my thighs to the exposed skin in between my stockings and lace panties. “I love these stockings, who the fuck dressed you?”

“Kai and Sehun,” I say breathlessly, already worked up just from his small touches.

“I’m surprised they know how to put such nice lingerie on, garter and everything. I figured their talent would be in taking it off.” We laugh even as he peels off my panties and throws them aside we lay there, just enjoying each other’s company. This is what I love about Chen, he can make such intense and intimate acts funny and silly. Especially when he crawls off the bed to take his pants off, but not as smoothly as he was hoping. The cute man ends up tumbling to the floor with his pants still half on leaving me dying on the bed, clutching my stomach as laugh. When he manages to get his pants off he stands tall like it didn’t happen, “Are you laughing at me little girl?”

I have to force myself to stop laughing and press my lips in a tight line so giggles can’t spill out, “Nope.” But I can’t, I really can’t at the sight of his SpongeBob boxers that leave me dying in laughter once again. He quickly climbs back on the bed and pins me down but I neither one of us can take his dominate look seriously. After about five minutes of us trying to get all the laughs out we are able to try and continue.

“Okay baby girl, I’m being serious now,” He tries to keep his face serious. I help by not cracking up again, instead I look up at him with wide innocent eyes.

“Okay, Daddy, I’m sorry.”

He cracks a smile at that, “Good girl. Now tell me something baby, do you know how to make daddy feel really good?”

I bite my lip and nod, “Of course.” He flips us back over so I’m on top before scooting back until his head rests on the pile of pile of pillows at the top of the bed. His legs are open slightly, inviting me in between. I lick my lips as I crawl up to him, opening his legs a little wider, dragging my nails up his bare legs until I reach his boxers. Not breaking eye contact I pull his boxers down like he did to me and toss them away. I lean forward, looking away for just a second to kiss the head of pink manhood. After a few soft kitten licks I look back up making sure he’s watching as I take the whole thing into my mouth.

He can’t keep his eyes open when I begin to bob up and down, his head tips back as his hands find their way to my hair. My hands are resting on his hips to make sure he doesn’t buck into my mouth like I know he’s dying to do. I slurp and suck him for all he’s worth until he is moan in both pleasure and frustration. Upset that I won’t let him fuck my mouth, last time he got a little too rough giving me a sore throat and him a beating from the others so I’m trying to do us both a favor. But he doesn’t appreciate it and the next thing I know Chen moves behind me and pushing me into the mattress.

“Baby, were you teasing daddy?” He purrs in my ear. My ass is up in the air with skirt pushed out of the way, giving him a perfect view of what he wanted to see.

“Of course not,” I stammer out when I feel his hands caressing my ass. I hold my breath waiting for what’s to come. As if on cue his hand comes down hard on my left cheek, the sting makes me yelp but it would be a lie to say I wasn’t getting me wet.

“Oh, you also lied to me, that’s another one,” I can hear the grin in his voice as he spanks me again. He rubs my red cheek, even places a few kisses on it to help with the sting. He surprises me by sliding himself into me without warning. I let out a mixed moan and yelp, making the man above me laugh. “Did I surprise you baby?” I can’t get myself to respond, my mind is spinning and my body tries to adjust to his size for a second before he starts thrusting slowly.

We both moan as he lazily pumps in and out, he leans over me, leaving kisses across my shoulders. His hands wrap around my body to find my breasts, his skilled hands massage and pinch at them threw the thin fabric, earning more moans from me and building up the already wound knot in my belly. Neither of us last very long, after a few more thrusts we are both grinding frantically threw our orgasms.

He pulls out of me before quickly pulling my dress off and holding me close to cuddle. I give him a questioning look, “I thought you liked the dress?”

“I do, I just prefer to feel your skin against mine instead of that itchy fabric.”

“Good to know,” I hum as I snuggle in to his embrace and he pulls the covers over us.

“I never got to ask, how was your weekend? He didn’t do anything to you right?” He wonders as he tucks my head under his chin.

I bite my lip, happy Chen can’t see my face right now, he would know something was wrong, “Of course not. It was really fun.”

“Any chance you are willing to tell me what we did in your dream? Luhan hyung told me that you thought we were going to kill you.” I don’t answer. “I take that as a no.”

“You didn’t really do anything,” I sigh, “You just encouraged it like normal.”

“What do you mean?”

’Make sure it hurts Yeol, I want to hear her scream.’” I repeat what the cold man in my dream said.

“What was Chanyeol doing?”

I burry my face deeper into his chest, not wanting anything to do with the memoires of that nightmare but I manage to choke it out, “He was going to rip out my teeth.”


The next morning

“Do we have to let her go?” Sehun whines at the breakfast table where he has been holding me hostage on his lap. The others try to ignore him and the irritation they are all feeling.

“It’s a deal Sehun we all knew this was going to happen. At least we got an extra day with her,” Suho reasons with a sigh, even though he understands he is still upset. I can’t really blame them. It’s Tuesday, Jiyong’s day with me and just like my daddies, I’m unnerved at the idea of seeing him again so soon. But mine is for a different reason.  I told him that I love him. I’m so freaking nervous I feel so tempted to ask my daddies to call him and tell him that I’m sick or something but that would raise questions on why I don’t want to go. That isn’t something I want to deal with right now.

“You guys will have her all day so you have not right to complain,” Kris sneers.

“We only have three classes with her,” Kai corrects.

“That’s more then any of us,” Tao snaps back.

“Can we not fight about this?” I ask meekly.

“Why can’t you just tell him you don’t want to see him today, that you want to skip this week?” Sehun asks hopefully.

I shake my head, “He’ll get mad.”

“Why would ask such a stupid question Sehun? We all know she would never cancel her night with her favorite oppa,” Xiumin growls not even looking in my direction.

“Daddy Xiumin,” I start but he doesn’t bother to listen.

“I don’t want to hear it today baby. You have fun with him tonight, I’m going to be staying late in the office today and I’m heading in earlier so see you all in the morning.” Xiumin is on his feet and heading to his room at his last word. I watch him go with my mouth hanging open, dumbstruck and upset that he didn’t even let me tell him to go ahead and call.

“Hyung’s crabby today,” Kai grumbles.

Kris tsk at us, “Can you really blame him? Hyungnim just gets to take her whenever he wants because she wants to go. If any of us tired that someone would pop and say it’s unfair and we’d end up having everyone getting together. The only one who can say no to Hyungnim is Jooyoung and she won’t do it. And it’s really fucking unfair that he can have you to himself for a night out, I wish I could take you on a date. Take you to a nice dinner where we could just talk and talk like you do with him. To bad I’d have to wait my turn.” He stands up and storms off like Xiumin.

The room goes silent except for the sound of me breathing deeply to keep myself from crying. I feel like my heart has been ripped out, I’m an asshole. I always forget how greedy I  am, I have all twelve of them and I barely get to give all of them that much attention. A tear slides down my cheek that I quickly wipe away.

Sehun tries to hold me tighter but I jump out of his embrace, “Baby, they are just irritated, don’t be upset.”

“You don’t understand how hard it is to have to share you with each other let alone another guy who is obviously trying to steal you away. You just don’t ever think about all the drama that follows,” Suho tries to say it gently but I can hear the bitterness he has for me in his voice.

“I’m sorry, I’m just constantly told not to think about anything really that doesn’t have to do with rainbows and fucking sunshine,” I give them a bitter sweet smile. “Can someone take me to school? I’m want to get out of your hair as soon as possible this morning so I don’t cause anymore drama.”

“Baby-“ Baekhyun starts but I cut him off.

“I can call Jihyo if you want or the boys, whatever is less drama for you. Hell I’ll walk if that makes it easier for you,” I laugh humorlessly.

“Jooyoung, please stop talking like that!” Luhan both demands and begs.

“I’ll call them on my way,” I rush towards the door where my backpack is waiting.

“I’m getting my keys,” Lay yells from behind me, “Baby, please wait.”

Levi’s taken to writing letters to his roommate in his biology notebook.

It’s not like he can’t talk to his roommate. They get along well, and Levi has no problem asking him for things. The letters aren’t angry letters.

They’re even worse than that.

The contents of the letters are nothing but idiotic drivel. Things a high school girl would write about her crush. “I love your stupid eyes.” “I love how you look when you come in after a workout.” “The smell of your shampoo and aftershave drives me insane.” Embarrassing stuff like that. On a weekly basis, Levi tears them out of his notebook and rips them up. Next thing you know he’ll be writing “Mr. Levi Smith” with little hearts around it. Pathetic.

(The name has a nice ring to it, though.)

Levi’s a freshmen, so a nice dorm room with some privacy is out of the question. His lot is a double room with barely enough space for both him and his roommate. It means two beds on opposite walls and two desks right next to each other, getting dressed and going to sleep in the same small space. Even if Levi didn’t want to know how Erwin slept or what he looked like shirtless, he would. He does.

(Erwin sleeps on his back, arms splayed, hair charmingly mussed. Shirtless, he looks like a god.)

Levi sits on his bed with his bio notes in front of him, studying. Whether he’s studying his notes or studying the other man in his room is up for debate. He flips over flashcards. His roommate leans back in his desk chair and stretches, muscled arms over his head, shirt riding up just the tiniest bit.

Levi flips to the back of his bio notebook and writes down, “You need to stop doing that. You look really sexy when you do that, and it’s too fucking much.”


Levi drops his notebook. “Yeah?”

“You want to take a break and get some dinner? I’m meeting up with Mike and Hanji.”

Erwin’s always inviting him to socialize with him. Levi almost always turns him down. Erwin doesn’t push, but he also doesn’t give up. He strikes the perfect balance between caring and respecting Levi’s boundaries. He’s so considerate it makes Levi want to tear his hair out.  

“No thanks. I have to study,” Levi says.

“What are you studying?” Erwin stands and crosses the too-small room to glance at Levi’s notes.

“Bio. Big test tomorrow.” Levi looks at Erwin. He’s staring at something on Levi’s bed. His notebook. The notebook that’s open to a page with the words, “You look really sexy when you do that” scrawled across it.

Levi picks up the notebook and slams it closed.

Erwin raises his eyebrows. “Who was that to?”

“No one.”

“Are you seeing someone?”


Erwin tilts his head. He clearly doesn’t believe Levi.

“It was … a joke. It was sarcastic. A note for Hanji because they were doing something that looked really not sexy. That kind of thing.”

“You don’t have to make up excuses, Levi,” Erwin says gently.

The color drains from Levi’s face.

“If you want to keep your love life private, I … respect that,” he says.

Levi lets out a breath. Erwin doesn’t know the note was about him. His secret is safe.

“I’ll see you after dinner,” Erwin says.

“See you then.”

Erwin takes two steps to the door, then turns around. “I should tell you … I mean, I should say … Now may not be the time, but I …” He sighs and runs a hand through his hair.

“What?” Levi asks.

“I just want to say … that I completely respect whatever choices you make regarding your love life and I hope you’re very happy with this person.” Erwin clears his throat. “That’s all.” And he leaves.

Levi’s alone in his too-small room. He picks up his bio notebook, imagines that interaction going differently, and writes.

Studying with ADHD

I have ADHD which can make going homework and studying a little difficult. I heard about how my friends could sit down for 4-5 hours and day and study and knew I just couldn’t do that. SO with the help of my phycologist and the amazing Smith College Disabilities Office I have worked out strategies that help me do my best in college. These are what strategies work for me and everyone’s experience with ADHD is different so these may not all work for you but I hope you find these helpful and if you have any questions feel free to write me!

Do work in the morning

I find that my attention and energy goes away as the day goes on and if I start the day distracted and unproductive I usually can’t get back on track. So, my best solution to this is to do all my important work first thing in the morning when I have a lot of energy and attention to dedicate to my work.

Talk out a plan before you start

Before I have a big project or a day when I have a lot of work I call my mom the night before and make a plan that breaks the day into manageable chunks of time and gives me something a set plan so I don’t have to think about what to do next I can just do it! Also talking out my ideas and work makes it all seemed a lot more organized and manageable.

Use a bunch of different study techniques

Just straight reading and writing for fours is a guaranteed way to make sure I’m not going to do work, but if I’m studying in ways that are interesting and different I can pay attention and work a lot longer. I make a lot graphic organizer to help organize essays before I start writing. I’ll also make big visual organizer to study for tests. Another thing I like to do is make interactive study guides. I make a google doc with all the things I need to know then I look on the internet pictures, diagrams, youtube videos and web pages that help explain what I need to learn.

Find your perfect study music

When it gets too quiet, I find it harder for me to concentrate because I get distracted thinking of things so having music to occupy my brain while I work helps a lot! I tried every time of music from classical to jazz and finally found that dubstep is my ideal working music, upbeat and interesting but not so complicated or emotional that I get distracted.

Work in short time bursts

A lot of study/productivity advice holds that you should work 50 mins and talk a 10 min break. But 50 mins is way way too long for me, even 30 mins can be way to long, so I try to work in 15-20 mins with breaks in between or else I start feeling antsy. Another awesome thing is the aoo Get Sh*t Done. With this app you accrue more time the longer you work so I have the flexibility to take shorter breaks more frequently or if I’m really in the zone I can take a longer break later.

Take breaks that don’t involve the the computer

The computer is the death of me for trying to pay attention. As much as I love the computer and the internet, it exacerbates my attention issues and drains my energy. So when I take breaks I try to makes sure they are non computer related. I draw or crochet or dance or run around do nails. These activities give me energy and help me focus for the times I need to!

Marichat May Day 3 - Homework

Marinette is struggling with physics. Strangely enough Chat Noir stops by her house offering to tutor her. What happens when Marinette’s grade improves but she’s begun to use Adrien’s way of working through a physics problem?

Rated T || 2,537 Words

Cross posted to Ao3 || FF

Now it Makes Sense

Physics was not Marinette’s strong suit. She excelled in all her other subjects but when it came to physics she was completely lost. Alya had tried to help her but there are only so many times one can fail at trying to study together before “want to study” changes to “want to hang out.” It was during one of those study sessions turned hang outs that Alya told Marinette how good Adrien was at physics. The blogger wiggled her brows at Marinette when she recommended the bluenette ask her crush to tutor her. Marinette dismissed the idea because if she couldn’t speak two words to the boy without stuttering then how was she supposed to ask him questions when she was confused?

How to Study When You Have Absolutely No Idea What’s Going On

So you haven’t been to class in three weeks, you’re totally lost when you do somehow stumble into your tutorials, and you have a test next Monday. You don’t really know what’s going on in your course but you need to get that content mastered ASAP. I’ve been in this situation far too many times (hello Calc I, II, III, Real Analysis and Electro-Magnetism), so I know how to get through it. These tips probably won’t get you an A, but they may help you pass.

1) Time-frame: Depending on your workload and how fast you work, this will be different for you. Usually, for me, it takes about a week of studying hard (usually two hours a day) to go from knowing absolutely nothing to knowing enough to pass. Know your time-frame, and plan study time accordingly. Break your content up across your time frame so you know what you need to finish on each day. It’s usually easiest to break the work up by chapter if you don’t know what’s happening.

2) Resources: If you’re at university, your prof probably uploads his or her lecture notes to some sort of online platform. If not, you probably have a textbook. Gather all your resources together because you will need all of them.

3) Get a fresh notebook. You probably need to - literally - turn over a new leaf. If you’re doing something that requires a lot of practice, like maths, I recommend getting two notebooks - one for notes and one for practice questions. They don’t need to be fancy notebooks, or even new - they just need to be fresh. 

4) Start at the basics. If you start somewhere and don’t know what’s happening, go back a chapter. Start with the easy stuff and work your way through the material. Make notes in that fresh notebook. Write stuff in your own words. Talk out loud to teach yourself the work if you need to. Google stuff  you don’t understand. Even the most basic stuff - if you don’t know what it means, find out and take things one baby step at a time. Work at your own pace. 

5) Do practice work. These may be problem sets, or tutorial questions, practice essays…whatever you have available. If your textbook has extra questions, mark off the interesting ones and get to work. Download a solutions manual if you can, so that if you get stuck you have it as reference. ONLY if you get stuck. Do not abuse textbook solutions. In any case, you’re going to need a lot of practice in a short amount of time to get on track with your work. I recommend doing some practice questions immediately when you learn something, and marking some off to revise later.

6) Enlist help. Find your classmates, your prof, your TAs, Sal from Khan Academy (bless him)….whoever you can. If you get stuck on something with your practice work, you’ll need to ask someone to help you. There’s nothing wrong with asking someone for help. 

7) Practice exams/tests. Now that you’ve gotten up to scratch with the work you should have learnt three weeks ago, it’s time to test how well you know it. Find practice tests or exams, and work through them. First do some with consulting your notes, then without. This will help you fill in the gaps in your knowledge.

8) Trust your work. The day of the big test has arrived and you’re feeling stressed. Trust that you put in the hard work and you actually know what you’re talking about now. You can do this.

I hope these tips are helpful! If you have any questions, feel free to send me an ask! You can also find my study instagram @ munirastudies where I post my studyspo I deleted tumblr mobile because it was too distracting.

Happy studying!

Lightning Strikes the Heart: Alexander Hamilton x John Laurens

Word Count: 1084

Warnings: Storms, Panic Attack

A/N: Another older fic, set in the universe where Alex’s adopted parents are the Mirandas and John’s are the Washingtons. A storm is coming.

The headlines had been the same for weeks now. ‘Huge storm heading for New York City!’ plastered every newspaper, magazine, and article Alex came across. Each time, he had to look away and try to block the thoughts from his mind.

Alexander Hamilton had hated storms since he was thirteen when a hurricane destroyed his town in the Caribbean that ended up sending him to New York City to attend high school. He was seventeen now, but that didn’t make it better. Every time the wind and rain hit his window, he flashed back to the time in his life where he was the most afraid. He had never come as close to death before as he did that day. Even though he had thought about his own death, experiencing was not the same as fantasizing about it.

Thursday, the day of the storm was fast approaching and Alex could do nothing to stop it. He thought about leaving the city, but he didn’t exactly have the money to do that. He decided that he would just stay in his apartment and deal with it, but deep down he knew it would be more difficult than just ‘sticking it out’.

The morning of the storm, Alex went to class, just as he did every other day. When he walked into the brick archway of his high school, he saw his boyfriend, John, leaning on the wall on the outside.

“Hey,” John said simply. The significance of that day was lost on him, as Alex hadn’t told him about his fear of storms. John was innocent to Alex’s panic attacks in this sense, and Alex intended to keep it that way.

I’m just going to put it out there: I’m not perfect.
I’m only 5'2" and thinner than I’d like to be. I haven’t got clear skin and my hair isn’t silky. I have body hair and thick eyebrows and a flat chest. I make stupid decisions. I buy glasses too big for my face and bras that are uncomfortable. I sleep late and skip breakfast and cut class when I already have a shortage of attendance. I daydream when I need to be studying and study till the break of dawn on the day of the test. I suck at making conversation and have stage fear and I’m awkward in social situations. I imagine problems that aren’t there and then try to find solutions for them. I dream too big and work too little. I want this boy to be in love with me for eternity but I also have trust issues that sometimes creep back in. When I’m on the phone with him at 2 A.M., I can’t say goodbye even if my eyes are giving up. I can never say goodbye. I love too much. I compromise too much for him and romanticize love a lot and can’t get over the fantasy of “the one”. I keep running back to places that have burnt me. And I love my world of books and fantasy more than the world I live in. I give destiny too much power and keep alternating between “I want to be pretty” and “Physical beauty doesn’t matter”.

And I bet you were excepecting this to end with a “but”.

“But I’ve got the best heart.”

“But I’ve got beautiful eyes that will captivate you.”

“But I’m doing okay.”


I’m far from perfect and sometimes, that just sucks a lot for me.



There, it’s out.
