How to Schedule Your Study Time

I’ve been asked multiple times to make a post about how to schedule your study time, so here it is! This is a little bit different of a schedule because it’s over mid-semester break (Easter break for most), but it still works.

Step 1: Write down everything you need to do.

Get out a piece of notebook paper or open a new document on your computer and unleash your brain’s to-do list. Write everything down from classes, work, events, and extracurriculars to your work outs, meals, showers, and sleep. Nothing is too small to be written on the list, so if you need to remember to shave your legs, write that down!!

Step 2: Assign each task an estimated amount of time it’ll take to complete.

This part is really crucial for me because it takes my organization a step further to help me achieve my studying and planning goals. It also gives me a reality check – sometimes I’m so ambitious I try to bite off more than I can chew. If I know from the beginning that I most likely won’t achieve everything I need to do, I won’t be as disappointed come the end of my planning and studying. It also tells me I probably need to pick it up during the week and stop procrastinating…

Step 3: Open up Excel, create a table on another computer program, or grab a piece of paper.

Next we’ll make the calendar with a readout of our obligations. I generally use Excel or a piece of paper, but I find that excel works best because I can edit future events easier if I didn’t quite complete a task I planned for.

Have the first column for times, then a column following for each day you want to plan. It helps to have the time column skinnier with the days’ columns wider so text can fit in easily. I leave two rows per hour (therefore one line is equal to one half hour) so I can plan for events or tasks that won’t be taking up whole hours.

Step 4: Designate a color for each of your scheduled categories.

These colors are the same as in my planner:

  • Purple: Anatomy & Physiology
  • Pink: Genetics
  • Blue: Beverage Management
  • Orange: Economics
  • Red: Work
  • Green: Extracurriculars
  • Black: Personal (showers, meals, sleep, relaxation, etc.)
  • Yellow: Travel

I enter in all of my class, work, event, and extracurricular times first – things I can’t miss. These are important to put into your schedule first because you can easily schedule studying around them. 

Step 5: Once all of your obligations are plugged into your schedule, it’s time to fill in your studying.

This is where the required times for your tasks help a great deal! It’s easy to spot an hour block here or there and plug in a 45 minute or hour task… something that may be a little hard for some when they’re just going through their day and have a block. I know whenever I get an hour block I try to nap or rest as much as possible, but this frequently puts me behind. :(

Also, it may help you to pull out your planner and see what exams, quizzes, or assignments are coming up soon. You should rank these at a higher priority and complete these sooner rather than later to ensure you complete them.

I also group lesser tasks; for example, on Thursday night at 11:00 PM I grouped two homework assignments because they really shouldn’t take that long and they’re on the computer at the same time, etc. It’s just easier for me to get them done at the same time. Just like if you need to go to a few different stores, try to go to them all in one trip. It’ll save you time, money, and gas!

Step 6: As you’re adding tasks to your schedule, make sure you’re crossing them off your list you made. You don’t want to miss anything or add something twice!

This is pretty self-explanatory but also important! Make sure you’re adding everything and not missing anything. 

Step 7: Make sure to schedule enough sleep during your night as well as time to eat/relax.

This is the most important step of them all! Without recharging your smart little brain and body, how are you going to have the fuel to move on? Also, try snacking on fruits and veggies and drinking water when you’re studying. I’m one to love candy when I’m studying and it’s hard to say “no” to my precious chocolate and skittles, but I know they’ll just bring my metabolism and energy down. Drinking a lot of water helps too because that means more bathroom breaks – which means more study breaks! ;)

I hope you found this post helpful. If you’d like to see other posts about my studying tips and tricks, please share this post and leave me a message about what I can improve or what you’d like some advice on. Happy studying! – grxeek

Bad teacher. (Alex Standall)

Title: Bad teacher.

Pairing: Alex Standall x Reader

Request: heeyyy i love your account and was wondering if i could get an alex standall imagine when y/n has a panic attack in class and texts alex and he meets her in the hallway and helps calm her down?? if not that’s chill but if you do thank you!! have a great day :)            

Word Count: 800 words

Reader Gender: Female

Summary: Bad teacher, bad grade, principal’s office.

Warning: Panic Attack (it’s on a low level, but I want you to be prepared in case it can hurt someone’s sensibility.)

Author’s Note: I love you all. Continue requesting. I felt like I kind of familiarize with this one because once I had a problem with​ a teacher. And it ended a little messed up. Also, I’m having a lot of trouble with my laptop. It’s just doesn’t work like it should, so it’s harder for me to post. I’m sorry. On Wednesday, I’m not posting anything because it’s my birthday ;) I’ll keep you informed when I’ll post.

Two hours of this class, I never liked it. The teacher hated me, a lot. He always stared at me for an hour while everyone else did the examples he wrote on the board. Then, when I finished mine, he said they were wrong and he never signed anything I did. He thought how bad student I was, and told the director I should reconsider another school to study Maths.

Every week I had this class, I freaked out. I tried to skip class, but Alex always told me it wasn’t the best. Now, here I was.

“Y/n, he wrote your name on the board.” Sheri whispered to me and I at first surprised.

“Mrs. Y/L/N, would you make me a favor and tell me what did you do for homework?” He said rudely.

“We had to-” Everyone was looking at me, and some started giggling. “Check the exam you gave us. With-” The teacher stood up and made a weird noise from his throat.

“I’m tired of you, Mrs. Y/L/N. You can never do something good. I ask you to do a simple task, and you can’t even do that. Are you sure you can even think?”

Some girls at the front laughed and I had some tears coming out already. He laughed again.

“Someone can answer me that question? Because it looks like Y/n, can't​ do it.” He ended and Sheri took my hand.

No matter how much I studied, he just didn’t like me. He wasn’t like this with everyone, only with me. Sheri held me stronger and I felt so weak at that moment. Tears already were on my face and my hands were shaking. The teacher stood up and start to deliver the past exams. I studied really hard and I knew I had a good result.

“Here’s your exam. You’re so silly.” He said while I took my exam from his hands.

I got an F. Really? I studied hard enough for this test, this must be wrong. But unfortunately, before any words came to me, tears arrived first. Something was stuck in my throat. I felt my mouth drier than usual and it was getting harder to breath.

“Sheri, I need to go out.” I told her and she nodded.

I stood up and walk to his seat trying to clean my face.

“Can I go out?” I whispered and he laughed.

“Get out of my class, you’re not doing anything anyways.” He pushed me a little and I went to the corridor on my way to the bathroom.

“Y/n?” Alex’s voice interrupted me. But I tried to keep walking. “Hey.” He touched my arm and pushed me against his chest, and I hugged him. “Clay, can you leave us?”

Clay was here too? Now he saw me crying, but Alex’s chest was comforting. He caressed my back slowly and rested his jaw on my head.

“Hey, I’m here. What happened?” He continued hugging me but I cried again. “You want some water?” I nodded and he took his water bottle out. “Here is some paper.” I cleaned my nose and handled him my exam. He opened the paper and looked confused at it. “First of everything, are feeling better? Take some chocolate.” He gave me a chocolate bar he had in his pocket. “You’ll feel better, I promise.”

I grabbed it carefully, and take a bite of it. He took from his backpack a notebook and take out a paper. Then started to compare it with my exam.

“Come with me.” I held his hand, and we walked. He holding the two sheets of paper, and holding my hand while I ate his chocolate bar. We arrived at the principal office but he never stopped holding me. “Hey, can we talk to the principal?” He announced to the principal's​ secretary. I ended his chocolate bar and he touched carefully my hand. “I promise you’ll be fine.” We waited around 20 minutes, not doing anything just sitting there. Alex holding my hand all the time, or hugging me. I just wanted to have him with all during everything. Sheri texted me, but I ignore the notification and continued waiting with Alex.

We entered with the principal. And he saw us with a concerned look. I had a messed up make up, and Alex looked angry. His grin was usually calm, but this time he wasn’t like the principal expected.

“We have a problem with a teacher.” Alex stated and he put the two pages on the table. “This are the same questions, both are our exams but hers has a bad grade. And it’s unfair.”

And just like that. Mom came to see the situation, the teacher got mad, and they finally took me out of his class.

Alex stayed all day there, holding my hand.

Words: 1,131

“Lastly, I‘d like to announce the big homework!“ the teacher calls out within the last three minutes of his lesson, making the whole class to let out a long groan and some muttered complains. “You‘re all thrilled to find out I see“ he adds wryly while bending down to take out a big cardboard box from under his desk, which seems to be quiet heavy, and drops it on the table, causing dust to fly everywhere. 

“I‘m pretty sure every one of you has seen one of these“ the professor says, as he pulls out a baby doll from the mystery box and holds it upside down by one of its leg. 

“What does that have to do with our homework, Sir?“ a guy asks, starting up a discussion among the other students. 

“Listen up!“, Mr Danforth exclaims quieting the class, “This is not just a simple task. It‘s what I like to call it, the Baby Project!“ he finishes enthusiastically and throws his arms in the air, letting go of the baby‘s leg at the same time, causing it to start crying the second it fits the wooden surface. Before any comments could be made, he continues speaking while trying to get the doll in his arms to simmer down. “Each one of you will be assigned a partner. Together, you‘ll have to take care of your very own baby for 14 days! Doesn‘t that sound exciting?“

PART TWO

Series Masterlist


That night was one of the worst you can record.

It was 3:08 am when you, tired of trying to sleep and tossing and turning in your bed, got up for a night walking.

Your mother wouldn’t hear you sneaking out. She was so tired after the long shift she sometimes has at her job it was almost impossible to wake her up. Maybe she would notice it the next morning by seeing the bags under your eyes but you would attribute them to a night where you had one of your insomnia attacks.

As always, when you had a rough day and wanted to get relaxed or think or just be in peace for a while, you went to seat next to Mr. Harris, a tree near your house you used to visit with your elder brother when you were kids. Both of you decided to call it Mr. Harris because it has a zone on its bark that looked exactly the same as you neighbor’s face back then. Mr and Mrs Harris moved time ago, but you would never forget them. They seemed pulled out from a fairytale; the old, creepy and moody couple that want to ruin the main character’s life with a spell or similar.

The spot where Mr. Harris is located became special when you brother took you there to eat some cookies he had stolen from the pot in your kitchen one day you were feeling sad many years ago.

The bark of that tree seemed rougher than you remember it was when your hand touched it that night. That new sensation made you sighed. It seemed like everything good that ever came to your life had to end up the wrong way, even just a simple piece of bark of a tree.

Self care is extremely important, especially with finals coming up. Don’t study so hard that you forget to take care of yourself. Remember, you won’t be able to do as well on a test if you’re not doing good. Here’s a quick little list to look at to make sure you’re taking care of yourself.


  • When did you last shower? Was it yesterday? If not, take a shower.
  • Have you brushed your teeth today? If not, brush them.
  • Have you eaten anything in the last six hours? If not, please eat. Don’t think of eating as a “get to” activity, or a reward– you can always eat, even if you didn’t meet another goal. Your body needs food to function.
  • What about drinking? Have you had a glass of water in the last hour? Drinking is extremely important, and dehydration can cause anything from headaches to nausea to death. (Only death if it’s super duper severe, though.)
  • If you’re in pajamas and it’s not time to sleep, change into something that’s still comfy but not pajamas. We don’t want to be giving our brains sleep cues when we’re trying to get stuff done, and it can make us feel lethargic.
  • If you have thoughts racing around your mind faster than you thought possible, making you anxious and stressed and scared: music. It can help you move your focus away from your thoughts.
  • Open your blinds, okay? You can’t live in the dark all the time. The light will help you wake up and keep your sleep schedule on track.
  • Try to go outside, even if it’s just to walk a block or two. It’ll get your muscles moving and, again, help you stay awake.
  • Is your room messy? Try putting one thing away. Just one. That piece of paper on the floor? Recycle it! Just like that, you’ve done something productive. You can do more if you’d like, but that’s enough if you’re feeling overwhelmed. One step per day can add up to a marathon.
  • Do you have meds? Take them. If you’re prone to forgetting, you can set a daily reminder on your calendar, or download an app that will remind you.
  • If keeping a bullet journal helps you, open yours up and see what you have to get done today. Do you have any appointments you need to go to? Appointments can be scary, but remember, an appointment means someone is counting on you to be somewhere. (I stole that line from the app Booster Buddy! It’s really encouraging.)
  • If you’re in school, you probably have some homework. Make a list of your homework tasks and divide them down into small, manageable chunks. Do they seem too big? Make them even smaller. It’s a lot easier to do many small pieces of homework than one huge pile at once.
  • Talk to someone! Humans are social creatures and we’re made to interact with others. Even if it’s just texting, start up a conversation. Bonus points if you hug someone!
  • If you have school supplies like pens and highlighters, do a quick check to make sure all their caps are on. This might be more supply care than self care, but that’s okay! Take care of your school supplies!
  • I already said this, but DRINK WATER! It’s super important!! You gotta stay healthy and drink!

I hope these help! Please take care of yourselves~

[relax] [starting your day out right [relaxing summer activities] [] [my masterposts] [my blog]

Today has been thought provoking. I had the opportunity to be with a mentor and friend who recently had a life threatening experience. Such events lend themselves to greater appreciation for Time, relationships, and the small things in life.

To almost emphasize the point, the words of a song stood out to me…that the best moments in life seem like wasted time.

Do we sometimes give too much of ourselves to things that have no value? I was thinking about productivity. Often productivity is measured by tasks completed, products made, or dollars earned. One of my frustrations as a child is that my mom wouldn’t sit down with me and watch a movie. She always had to be working. As a working mom, I really understand because after working, there is cooking, cleaning, homework, baths…the To Do list. But, I don’t think those memories are best for my son. He needs to know he is more important than the To Do list.

It is the same with others. How easy it would have been for my mentor to stay home today with the list of all consuming work? Instead, he spent time with me… accomplishing little things on my list that were daunting and reconnecting with me. There must be balance I think.. time for the work that must be done, time for relationships old and new, and more importantly time for oneself.

So, perhaps the most productive time is actually reading a story or watching a movie? It will be unique to the individual and their needs. Be patient with yourself and others. ❤

Evolution of My Bullet Journal

Hello! I thought now that my bullet journal is almost full (and because I haven’t really posted much of it since last September oops) I’d show you how it has evolved over the months!

The first picture shows an example of how I structured my bullet journal from December 2015 until February 2016. I didn’t really have a weekly overview, just my habit tracker and sometimes a food tracker, or I would write down what book I’d read that week. I really liked this layout! But I think I got tired of it, and I needed my weekly overview back.

So in March 2016 I changed to a layout like in picture 2, and I kept it until May. I had space to write down my homework, my readings, to do lists, or whatever else I needed that particular week. I also got too lazy to write down everything I ate every day, and I didn’t really want to keep the habit tracker because it took so much time to draw it and fill it out every day. On the daily overview page I wrote down tasks and events, but soon I had way too much to do each day to keep this layout (it only had space for 4 tasks, what?). This was heavily insprired by @succulentstudy

In June I wanted to try the layout I tried to imitate in the example in picture 3. I saw it on some bullet journal tag (but sorry, I don’t remember who made it!). I thought I needed the separation of morning, afternoon and evening, and I liked that there was space for things I wanted to do on my social media (I was convinced I would start a booktube that month), and also for all my homework. But it always took so long to draw it, and I would always plan the whole week on Monday and never look at it again for a week because everything was already planned and I didn’t need to look at all the tasks I didn’t finish on a day because I didn’t need to plan out the next day.

Then I tried to make up my own thing (wow). You can see that in the last picture. I have an overview where I can write down important dead lines and events. There’s also enough space for homework, and for to-dos. Plus I have as much space for my daily to do lists as I need! I’m really satisfied with how it turned out, especially the daily part!

That’s it. I hope you enjoyed this evolution :)

So recently when I’ve been really getting into my studying I’ve been looking out for apps that are going to enhance the process and make it more streamlined and to basically organise my life since I don’t have the time or money to be starting a bullet journal right now. So I just brought together some of my favourite apps and some that you might find enjoyable so I hope you enjoy my first master post :)

anonymous asked:

(Evil Anon from way, way back) This is a weird one. Imagine if you woke up in a lab and learnt that you were actually a perfect clone of Shaelin Bishop made yesterday with all her memories and personality traits created for doing all her lame tasks like cooking and homework. Only one of you can be the legit Shaelin Bishop. Only one can lead her life, have her relationships, achievements and life in general. You can either live to serve her, or kill her and take her place. What do you do?

Every once in awhile you show up and I always enjoy it. 

I’m not gonna spend a life serving myself, that would be annoying. Real Shaelin is dead. She may be the original…but I am the alpha. 

anonymous asked:

Hi! May I please get headcanons or a scenario which ever is easiest for you, where Todoroki and his s/o are having a fluffy and quiet moment cuddling?? Thank you!! <3

“What time is it?”

“Five o’clock. Why?”

Todoroki hummed against your neck. “No reason. Don’t wanna overstay my welcome.”

The two of you were curled up under the covers, heat radiating off of Todoroki’s left side. It was only November, but the skies were grey and the weather was frigid. You had invited Todoroki into your dorm to do homework, but the lack of proper heating made that an impossible task. So instead, you (jokingly) invited him into bed with you to “warm up,” and he had agreed, albeit innocently. And so there you were, cuddling. He was circling his thumb on your hand, and you could tell he was smiling softly behind you.

“Good luck with that one. We live in a dorm, Todoroki. It’s not like you’d have to brave the cold to get back to your place.”

He just hummed in reply, burying his face in your hair. It was unlike him to be so bold, but you weren’t complaining. His face was warm, too, so he was either blushing really hard or using his Quirk to keep the room toasty. Talking would ruin the moment. You decided to look at his hands.

You had decided, after about five minutes studying the hand clasping yours, that Todoroki gets manicures. Or at least, he had, and has managed to have very little damage come to them since. You kind of chuckled at the idea of Todoroki sitting at a nail salon, getting his nails done. Maybe he’d have gone with his sister?

“What’s so funny?” Shit. Had you woken him up? Was he ever sleeping?

“Sorry. Nothing really, just thinking. Dude, your hands are really soft, you use lotion?” You dragged your thumb over his lifeline.

“Mmnmm.” That sounded vaguely like I don’t know. How do you not know if —

“Oh my god, Todoroki, get your hand off my face.” 

“Heh.”

“Dude!”

5 tips to getting shit done:

Or alternatively a series of observations made by me that may or may not help you get shit done. 

Ok so over junior year, I have been on a quest to find how people are more productive, get better grades, study better, etc. It’s my little quest and at the end of the quest is a scholarship and maybe further down is a nice dream job (which is unlikely I know). But without further ado, here are my observations so far:

1. Commit to getting shit done. If you sit down to do your math homework, do your math homework. Don’t try to multi task and watch Netflix and do science homework at the same time, even if you can focus the work may not be as helpful to you (or get done properly) and it may take you twice as long to do it. 

2. Make use of all your time. If you have down time in school, even though you may not want to, it may be useful to at least start your work for another class. Rather than pushing everything off till when you get home or the weekend, commit to it now. 

3. Be engaged and active in your classes or while doing your homework. If you learn as you go then you save the study time later. 

4. Budget your time appropriately. That 5 point psychology worksheet doesn’t need to be worked on for hours. Th time you spend on something should reflect how much output and value it gives in the long run. If you spend hours on small assignments, you won’t have time for the important ones. 

5. Study buddies, google docs, and study buddies. People are your friends, especially study buddies. They can help you catch up on work, clear up misconceptions, and you can collaborate on google docs to make some kick ass study guides. 

  • Another helpful tip is to talk with your friends about the material. It may help you cement ideas into your head.

re: draco malfoy is a werewolf theory

a few ppl have mentioned this theory to me the past few days, and my honest response is, i don’t enjoy the theory, but if you do, it isn’t totally IMPOSSIBLE! However, looking at the way werewolves are treated by wizarding society and specifically by death eaters, looking at how the Black & Malfoy families operate regarding blood purity, and looking at draco malfoy’s character thru all 7 books, i think its Very improbable. 

points to look at & consider specifically, in book-chronological order!

  • werewolves are at the VERY EDGES of wizarding society! fenrir greyback is used, barely tolerated as a death eater. he’s a boogeyman for voldemort’s inner circle to Use as a tool. 
  • given that bellatrix thinks draco has been given a “great honor” (she says so when she and narcissa visit snape in ch2 of hbp) and the fact that narcissa SUSPECTS that draco’s mission is to punish lucius. if he had been turned into a werewolf i super highly doubt that there would be ANY doubt! also, his aunt bella would absolutely have no fondness for him. she wants to kill tonks for marrying a werewolf! would she have any desire to be around draco? to encourage him? i doubt this!!!
  • narcissa asking snape to kill dumbledore in draco’s place would NOT have been her priority. i believe she would have asked him first to help draco with his condition, to brew the wolfsbane potion for him etc. 
  • draco showing borgin something is one of the key reasons i think he has a dark mark! it’s left open to interpretation, but i doubt borgin would think much of dealing with a werewolf, which is why draco uses one as a threat? it would be redundant and seems like more of a sympathy-invoking thing to be like “i’m a werewolf now and this could happen to you if you dont help me,” (becomedog​: “i am on the edge of society! call me sir though!”)
  • when harry eavesdrops on draco on the hogwarts express, draco either absolutely believes that voldemort trusts and needs him OR he is a very, very convincing actor (& i really doubt he is the latter). draco is irritable with his friends’ insinuations that voldemort wouldnt trust a 16 year old. i find it very hard to believe he’d feel trusted and important if voldemort had allowed him to be bit. he gets into the mess he’s in because he’s been made to feel competent and important. 
  • draco refuses snapes help throughout hbp—his stress is related to his failing confidence & the threat on his family’s safety. he’s skipping homework and quidditch to work on the vanishing cabinet, sick from stress. i get the impression that wolfsbane is a complicated potion, so i DOUBT he could operate this way and also brew himself wolfsbane.  
  • the “you can babysit the cubs” is another thing that makes me think draco ISNT a werewolf. fenrir isn’t afforded a place at that table. why would draco be??? wormtail is relegated to the task of servitude. i feel like if draco was not a death eater he would be tasked with, at the very least, staying out of the way. also later, in the malfoy manor, bellatrix is still treating draco with preference, in her own way. i doubt she’d want be near him, judging by the way fenrir is treated, if he was a werewolf. the black family would rather obliterate their blood relatives than allow blood impurity, and bellatrix follows that ideology to a T.

ANYWAY i dont mean to poop on the party but this is my take on it!! a lot of these theories have been floated based on throwaway lines—i think there’s a lot more character-specific evidence against this one than there is against, say, remus/sirius, and i think the “Snape is a Vampire” theory has a lot more to do with jk rowlings unchecked antisemitic snape coding than anything else. 

it’s been a few months since ive had my nose in these books so pardon my paraphrasing. if you want citations for anything hmu and i can try to dig them up. also if u choose to read that draco is a werewolf like!!! have fun!! i don’t personally think it checks out with the text and the characters, but it was interesting to look into.

The birthday glitch

Probably the strangest glitch in the matrix I’ve ever experienced happened right around my birthday in 3rd grade. I was scheduled to bring in cake supplies that Monday to celebrate, but the night before I had an odd dream; the first part of the dream was normal nonsense, but the moment before I woke up I saw a still image of the front end of a white truck out the side window of our family minivan.

I didn’t think too much of it as I got ready for school that morning. The extra task of getting the supplies together made us a bit late, so we were rushing out the door to get me and my three younger siblings to school on time. We drove to the edge of our neighborhood with me in the middle row doing homework. After letting a school bus pass we pulled out to make a left turn. I happened to look up right at that moment.

Out the side window of the car I saw the front end of a white truck about to hit us.

No one was injured in the crash. Afterwards, when we were all sitting on the curb waiting for our dad to take us the rest of the way to school, one of us mentioned that it was weird the way we crashed
Because they had a dream the night before of a white truck running into us.

Every single kid in the family had the same dream of the car crash from their perspective.

This, here, is a bit of fluff I wrote the other day and just now have gotten around to posting. The next chapter of ALLM should be coming this weekend, just working out a few kinks and whatnot. For now, have some Adrienette.


Counting Freckles


Seventeen. Eighteen. Nine-

Marinette suddenly turned her head and with a leap of his heart as her gaze caught his, Adrien lost count of the freckles dusting her cheeks. She blinked at him, a blush coloring her face to find him watching her so intently.

“Adrien? D-did you hear what I asked?”

It was Adrien’s turn to blink. “Oh. Um… no?” He scratched the back of his head, suddenly sheepish. “Guess I got distracted. What did you ask?”

“I asked if you’d finished the maths homework,” Marinette repeated.

“Right. Yes. Nino and I worked on it at lunch.”

She gave a little pout – the better for Adrien to notice how soft and pink her lips appeared. “Lucky. I haven’t even started, yet,” she sighed.

“I’ll help you with it,” Adrien offered. The girl rewarded him with a smile that made his stomach take up acrobatics. He started thinking of what else he could say to make her smile that way again.

Marinette turned her attention back to her task, which happened to be sewing a button back onto his favorite shirt. He could have easily given it to Nathalie to have someone mend, of course, but then he wouldn’t have had an excuse to be sitting with Marinette on the chaise in her room. His gaze turned to her hands, watching her nimble fingers work. Marinette had pretty hands, Adrien decided, with slim, pretty fingers and shiny nails. Not that this surprised him, at all. Everything about Marinette was pretty: pretty hands, pretty hair, pretty eyes…

“Ouch!” Marinette gasped suddenly, causing them both to jump when she accidentally pricked herself with the needle.

The blond watched as one of those pretty fingers went between pretty lips. For a moment, he simply stared. Then, he reached out to gently take her wrist. “Let me see,” he said, and the girl let him pull her hand towards him, although her face had gone pink again.

“I-it’s all right,” Marinette assured him. “It mostly just surprised me, is all.”

Adrien hummed in acknowledgment, but leaned in close to peer at her finger, anyway. “You should be more careful,” he said, looking up again. His pulse quickened when he realized they were much closer, now. In fact, from this distance, his count of her freckles would be even easier.

“A-Adrien?” she asked.

He liked hearing her say his name. It fell so nicely from her lips, even when she was nervous. “Y-yes?”

“You’re… you’re, uh, still h-holding my hand.”

The boy looked down to find that this was true. “Oh. Sorry, I…” He found himself reluctant to let go. Was that strange of him?

“Adrien?”

There it was again – his name on her lips! His heart swelled in his chest. “Marinette?” he asked impulsively.

“Yes?” she responded softly.

“May I… May I kiss you?”

Blue eyes widened in surprise as the blush on her face deepened. Adrien felt his breath catch in his throat, daring not to breathe as he awaited her answer. Just when he’d begun to think the answer was no, she gave a single nod, a shy little smile pulling at her lips. Then, Adrien leaned in, lips soft against hers as his fingers threaded between her own.

Adrien was happy to note that Marinette’s lips were just as soft as they appeared.

Can you please do #11 SCOROSE? Thanks! Love your blog by the way it's absolutely fantastic.

A/N: I did this as something for the queue because I was using the prompt list for imagines, hope that’s all right for you. Ad aw, thank you - I’m glad that you like it and that’s very kind of you to say x

#11 - The venomous look which Character-A shot Character-C brought a smirk to Character-B’s face, one which they had difficulty supressing.

‘What do you think?’ asked Rose, frowning as she looked over her homework.

She and Scorpius were sitting in the Library, trying to finish the homework that they’d been given. Rupert and Albus were sitting on the table next to them, Henrietta trying not to throttle them for their lack of concentration on the task at hand.

Scorpius lent over, taking Rose’s hand gently as he scanned over her homework. ‘I think I might need to up my game,’ he said simply, grinning at her.

‘Scorp, why on earth are you hanging around with these losers?’ came a cool voice. It was Damian Flint, the Slytherin Prefect and Quidditch Captain. The mere sight of him made Rose’s skin crawl. She disliked the guy with a passion – for some reason he seemed to think that the old ways of the Death Eaters were something to praise. It took all of her energy not to punch him in the face on days like this.

‘They’re not losers,’ said Scorpius in a small voice, looking towards Henrietta, who seemed to be hiding behind her book.

Flint let out a mirthless little laugh. ‘Oh no?’ he asked, tilting his head to one side. ‘Sorry, I was meant to bow at the greatness of the Potter-Weasley family members, wasn’t I?’ He mock bowed, causing his little group of friends to snicker.

‘Why would we want the likes of you bowing to us?’ Rose asked coolly. ‘Unless it was to hide your face – because how anyone can go out in public when they have your views I’ll never know.’ The venomous look which Rose shot Flint brought a smirk to Scorpius’s face, one which he had difficulty supressing.

‘Why you little –’ started Flint, but Scorpius already had his wand ready for a duel.

‘I wouldn’t, if I were you,’ he said coldly. ‘Why don’t you go try to educate yourself a little on what the word “loser” means. I’m sure there’s a book in here somewhere for you.’

‘If he can read,’ muttered Rupert, causing the others to snicker.

‘You wait,’ Flint mumbled, but there was a flicker of resentment behind his eyes which made them sure he wasn’t going to do anything.

‘Bowing now?’ Scorpius asked, raising an eyebrow at Rose. She was blushing so hard that her face almost matched the colour of her roots.

‘Oh, shut up, Scorp,’ she said, a small smirk playing at the corners of her mouth though.
