right so i was talking about this yesterday and no one seems to agree w nora saying andrew and neil don’t get married?? but think about it okay bc i am all for it
they have never been a show-y couple
i feel like nicky would want them to get married
but like, can you imagine neil, the guy who has always learnt to stay hidden ((what a great job he did lmao)) and andrew, the guy who doesn’t share his emotion with others, sharing all that with everyone?
some jeremy knox hcs because i love my sunshine boy
he has crooked teeth. the most noticable are his bottom front two, which overlap. it’s ridiculously charming
he sleeps with no fewer than four blankets, even in the middle of summer, which is kind of ridiculous considering how hot it always is. jean refuses to sleep in his bed because it’s too much
his socks don’t match. they never have. they never will.
he’s an anime nerd. the only thing he ever gets anyone else to watch is ohshc (laila and jean end up loving it and binge watch it all again one weekend when laila’s sick)
when he’s having a bad day, he’ll watch family feud. it’s his comfort blanket
once broke his toe on a coffee table doing ballet with his little sister
(i say ballet, they were really doing pirouettes to one of the jonas brothers albums)
has a wall calendar with each month being a different classic novel. he writes every exam date, game day, important meeting, date with jean, etc, written on this calendar, and it’s all color-coded
he’s a color-coding fiend. everything is organized by color. every homework assignment written in his planner, the notebooks/folders he uses for specific subjects. even the sweaters in his closet are organized by color
wears a lot of sweaters. a lot of sweaters.
doesn’t actually own plain socks. they’re all striped or polka-dotted or have little artichokes on them. does he know plain socks actually exist. probably not. who needs plain socks
has separate pairs of earbuds for the dorm & for going out. one pair does not leave his room. the other always ends up in his pocket when he goes out, even if he doesn’t use them
he loves to cook. usually makes dinner for the team at least once a week, and oftentimes with alvarez. they’re kitchen buddies and they have gotten in trouble on more than one occasion for listening to the rent soundtrack a little too loud

“Don’t say you are, because you and I both know you take shit care of yourself.“ "You have a hearing problem,” Andrew deduced. “Too many balls to the helmet, perhaps. Can you read lips?” Andrew pointed at his mouth as he spoke. “The next time someone comes for you, stand down and let me deal with it. Do you understand?
also, tbh, I’m so disappointed in the Far Cry 5 promo. DO americans really think that everyone else are so interested in their country that we want to spend 50+ hours running the flat plain while battling rapid marmots (read, AC3 the most boring ass game I’ve ever played); we had soooo goooood with FC3 and FC4 why you gotta do this now, can I just have another Nepal setup thnx
come with me. I need to show you something.”
the best of circumstances Reyes found it nearly impossible to refuse Scott. And
now, when his lover uttered his request in a soft, wistful tone, Reyes had no
other choice but to follow obediently without a question.
last couple of days Scott was out of sorts. Reyes noticed it first during their
vidcalls, confirming it later in person when the Pathfinder touched down on
Kadara. Scott looked subdued, as if carrying a burden far too heavy for his
shoulders, his usually bright and lively eyes filled with uncharacteristic
melancholy. Reyes asked him what was wrong, but got only a half-hearted
assurance that everything was fine. He didn’t press on, knowing that some
secrets needed time to come to light. It seemed that time was now.

to strike up a conversation. All he could do was to be there for him, a quiet,
but hopefully comforting presence.
landed near the Hyperion, Scott took his hand, his palm sweaty and his grip
like a vice, and guided him towards the Cryo Bay. Most pods were empty now, as
the colonists had been woken up and shipped off to different planets. But there
were still quite a few people in deep slumber, blissfully unaware of everything
that had happened.

of the pods to the ground level. Scott came closer and put his hand on the lid,
his expression pained and somber.

He waited for an explanation, which came a moment later. “Officially, at least.
But in reality it’s Ellen Ryder. My mother.”
Reyes’s mouth, but he quickly collected himself again. “I thought your mother
“I thought so too,” Scott sighed. “Only
recently I have found out the truth. My father put my mom in cryostasis, hoping
that one day we’ll find a cure for her sickness. I’m sorry I didn’t tell you
earlier, I decided with Sara to keep this a secret.”

condemn someone for keeping a secret.
that’s… good, right?” Reyes said carefully. From what he heard, Scott and his
mother were really close. “She is here, she can be saved. You can still be
Scott’s gaze dropped to the floor. Tears
glistened in his eyes.
“I spoke to
an asari scientist a couple of days ago. She told me that with our current
state of knowledge and our resources it would take years to develop a cure.
Over a hundred, maybe two, and that’s an optimistic estimation.”
his chest clench painfully. He didn’t know what to say, his heart breaking as
he saw the anguish painted across Scott’s features.
“So even if
she can be cured, I’ll be long…” Scott’s voice faltered, words turning into a
heart-wrenching sob. He brought his hand to his face to hide the tears spilling
over to his cheeks.
on impulse. He gathered Scott into his arms, stroke his hair, held him as the
man cried his heart out. Words of comfort began flowing, mentions of yet
unexplored Jaardan technology, of all the knowledge the angara had gathered, of
all the planets with their marvelous ecosystems still waiting to be discovered.
There was still hope.
wasn’t sure if Scott believed him – he wasn’t sure if he believed himself – but
eventually Scott calmed down. Sniffing, he pulled away and wiped the tears with
his sleeve. Slightly embarrassed by this outburst, he looked so young and
vulnerable. Reyes never loved him more.

“I know.” A
faint smile flickered across Scott’s lips. Beautiful, sad, but with a hint of his
usual optimistic self. A small victory.

know a guy around here who can give me a discount.”
“You never pay

soft chuckle was the best reward Reyes could imagine. That was the least he
could do – make his lover smile even in the darkest

What would you suggest someone whose starting a new drabbles/storys blog getting it spread around. Ive started a new blog and considering adding voltage fanfics as well.
Why am I being asked this like I’m a successful blog lmao For real though, there are a few things I would recommend to get yourself out there and get some eyes on your work.
The biggest piece of advice is probably the most simple: write, write, write! Even if you’re just starting out and don’t have many followers (or you have none at all) you have to produce content to be successful. Don’t wait for requests to come in. Come up with your own prompts, or look at ask memes here on tumblr. You know, the ones that have ‘which character would do x…”. You don’t have to sit around and wait for others to interact with you. Without your writing already out there, how will people know what your writing style is or what you like to write about?
Another important aspect is to not be afraid to interact with other blogs you like! Don’t be overbearing of course, but don’t be shy to send in asks or reblog posts from other drabble/fandom blogs you like. If you’re browsing Voltage or any other fandom tags and you’re constantly seeing the work of a particular blog, reach out to them in an ask or a private message. Compliment them on their work, express interest in what they post. If they respond well, don’t be afraid to ask for advice. Just don’t idolize them or put their writing on a pedestal, because it automatically makes the relationship uncomfortable. Content creators - whether they’re digital artists, fanfic authors, or edit makers - just want to be talked to like a normal person. There’s a fine line between genuinely complimenting their work and turning them into some kind of Manic Pixie Dream Fanfic Author.
Create content that you want to see out there in the fandom that you’re in.You’re not going to be motivated to constantly take requests from followers or write pieces you think your followers will like. Of course it’s good to take requests, but don’t force yourself to create something you’re just not interested in. Is there a character you feel doesn’t get enough content dedicated to them? Create it. Are there tropes/headcanons/kinks/scenarios you believe in but you can’t find any authors that have covered it? Cover it yourself. You’ll be doomed to push out mediocre writing if you’re not into what you’re writing. Follow your passion, no matter how off-the-wall or obscure you think it might be.
just turned 22 today, almost forgot my bday because of so many exams omg but here i am, always wondering how time passed by so fast. not to mention i had this blog since i first got into highschool and now i’m finishing uni…just woaaah
