i may have fainted


My steps have never

Been so careful.

I land like shards

Of glass on silk 

Without leaving 

A single tear.

In loving you,

I have become

Dainty, fainting,

Lost and unsure.

I may meet

The ideal in a way

My free, clumsy

Jumps never could,

But I live to dance,

Not to tiptoe,

And I need solid

<i> my room was always full of old books and flowers and records and my old bureaux du journal girls thoughtfully pinned to the wall and little Mr. Bingley would wrestle the lace bed skirt and even though I am only thirty minutes from my cat and lowly cabin secluded in its own forest, the past summer seems too distant and I may only have a faint dream of it rather than the collective thought I shall always long for.

anonymous asked:

I was scrolling through your blog and I saw a thing you answered a while ago saying it was in your stories that Harry got woozy around needles- specifically having his blood taken or something- first of all I think that's totally adorable, in a weird way, but I was wondering where you wrote it? I've read almost all your stuff and I don't remember that, but I may have missed it!

In #318, he faints from getting an injection:

#318. Eyes Open (PART 1)  (PART 2)

I know I’ve mentioned it in passing here and there, but that’s a definite example, and I will absolutely include it more. xx.

Yesterday on National Star Wars Day, my fiance and I welcomed our first into the World. His name is Eric James Spencer, and he looks just like Jen. I have never been more proud of my fiance, than I was yesterday. She did amazing, and I’m just incredibly happy. Dont laugh, but I may or may not have fainted.I dont have a strong stomach, so one look of blood and I was out. I got up quickly though as soon as I heard my son cry for the first time.

I’ll Take Care of You.

Based on this song, definitely not the Drake version.

Thanks to the ever lovely @markandjackaremysuperheros for requesting this and again I’m so sorry for taking so long to get this up. I hope you like it and I hope it’s fluffy enough ♡

A/N: Reader is not the only one who has been poorly this week, I’ve been back and forward to doctors all week so apologies, but all requests will be up as soon as physically possible, so please forgive and bare with me ♡♡ 

Requests are open and feedback is very much food for my soul!

Request:  Steve’s been away the past month+ and hadn’t had contact with anyone from the team. When he comes back he asks where reader is and finds out she’s in the infirmary and he freaks out but I’m reality she just has a flu and is getting a check up? Fluff?

Warnings: None but pure fluff. Steve is adorable- maybe he could pop around to mine after he is finished with y/n.

Words: 1,565.

Steve climbed wearily into the quinjet and sighed, Nat climbed in after him and she collapsed wearily onto the ground.

“That was a tough one Cap,” she sighed “Looked hairy for a while there.”

Steve was too exhausted to even muster up a response more than a hum of agreement and instead focused his energy on actually getting the plane into flight.

Nat had soon passed out on the seats and Steve set the jet onto autopilot and ruffled in his bag to find his phone, it had been weeks since he’d been able to check it, considering the mission was supposed to be a quick in and out job and Steve and Nat had left their phones hidden in the safehouse, neither believing they would have been away so long.

As soon as his phone came to life the pings of missed calls and messages started to override everything and he mildly began to panic when he noticed the majority of calls were from Bucky and none from you.

He immediately went to his voicemails which began with Bucky, trying to keep it cool and asking Steve where they were? They should have been home by now, no nothing was wrong he was just…. “checking in.”

The second was a slightly more worried Bucky, insisting still that nothing was wrong, he just wanted to “check by,” to see when Steve would be back.

By now Steve was mildly panicking because he knew Bucky, and he also knew that something was most definitely wrong.

The final voicemail was a slightly dejected sounding Bucky, who sighed before admitting that yes, something was wrong, that you were sick and in the infirmary and he was taking care of you, but Steve really needed to get back, but not to worry because you were in safe hands and you were being looked after, but you needed him.

When the message ended Steve was panicking, full time panicking, so much so that he had to wake Nat and as he stumbled through what Bucky had told him, she sat up and quickly took over flying telling Steve to hold on tight.

i need a shirt that says I Don’t Hate You, It’s Just My Face and another that says I Sigh A Lot Because I Have Health Issues And May Faint At Any Time, I Am Not Annoyed With You

jesse_spencer uploaded a new photo: And just like that, I have a son. Helping to deliver him into the World, was  one of the most scariest things I’ve ever done in my entire life I may or may not have fainted at one point, but that’s another story. Even though it was tough, and Jenna was in pain for a little bit, both are extremely healthy. I’ll forever be grateful for that. Welcome to the World Eric James Spencer, mommy and I love you more than anything and we’re so happy to call you ours. We can’t wait to watch you grow. May the 4h be with you! @jmrrson

Frank Doyle: Sadie met me on my last day as the boogie-man to boogie-men. I saw her and put in my papers. So if you think taking Sadie away from me and then throwing a bunch of monsters my way will scare me, I’ll let you in on this. It is a thing I cherish and appreciate, that I will get to show these monsters and animals how little I care for them when Sadie’s not around. Relive the good old days until Sadie and I reunite. Am I scared? No! I am excited to see if I still got it. And guess what? I still got it. I’ll take the skeleton first and use his bones to take the rest of you. That’s my plan, but I’ll play it by ear. They all have bones, as the skeleton pointed out. So we’ll see whose I use

Sadie Doyle: Oh, Frank, be gentle.

Frank Doyle: Only when by your side once more, my darling. And Nightmares, monsters, if you care to meet the only person I’ve ever met who leaves me in the dust in terms of merciless cruelty and toughness, you’ve already met her. You’ve put in danger the thing she loves above all else.

Sadie Doyle: You.

Frank Doyle: Me! On the one hand, I would like to see what she does to you. But on the other, I may have too faint a stomach for it.

Finding a mysterious man

Sooo I’m apart of a OW kin discord and eventually a Mercy kin brought up a guy from a painting she saw while In Kings row and we were hoping maybe some other kins out here could recognize him? 

So far we’ve gotten bad vibes from him, I’ve had a faint idea that possibly he may have either oversaw my construction of my mech or gave me the plans to it? An Amelia kin pointed out she felt he may have done deals with Talon at some point. The Mercy kin says how she gets anxious when seeing him,,, it’s really off so I hope maybe other people have seen him in anyway? And maybe can atleast give their opinions on him

Cake Tasting (Silas x Camilla)

With Love,” Camilla spoke. It was in her usual sultry tone, but something about the way she said it gave Silas chills – the good kind.

Lately, just being around the first princess made him all kinds of nervous. She always walked with an air of confidence about her. She was beautiful as she was calm, and as nurturing as she was ruthless.

Silas had been so entranced by her long, lavender tresses and heavy lidded eyes that the snapping of her fingers startled him.

“I-I’m sorry Lady Camilla, what was that?” He asked with a sheepish grin.

Cursed Child Observations: 30/12/16

I went to see the show for the fourth time last Friday and I was close enough to see a lot more details thanks to my seat - I was front row, in AA. This seat is great for the details that you see and hear but if you are short you might not see the back of the stage. I’m tall, so this wasn’t a problem for me.

I’m finally getting around to writing my thoughts down on the variations within each show and between actors. Cast board for this show:

Act One:

Sam’s transition between muggle clothing and Hogwarts robes wasn’t as smooth as normal. It looked as though the transition snagged slightly on his hood but it was only for a split-second and the transition got the same reaction from the audience that it usually does, so this probably wasn’t noticeable to someone seeing the show for the first time.

I love watching the characters on stage who aren’t speaking. For example, if you watch Harry and Ginny while Ron is doing his trick, they are being really cute with each other. Harry has his arm around Ginny and he caresses her back with his hand, and steals frequent adoring, soppy looks and grins at her. He usually sneaks a kiss on the cheek or the ear in somewhere. It’s gorgeous, especially as things become tense between them later on. James Sirius (Tom Milligan) is another one to watch - his reactions to Ron and Albus are entertaining.  He laughs again when Albus mentions Slytherin and often shares a joke and a look with Ron. I love that you can see how strong Ron’s relationship is with his nephews and nieces in this scene.

Lily’s Sorting is bittersweet. On the one hand you’re pleased for her as she’s so happy to go into Gryffindor (she runs to James Sirius and Rose and they have this uber-excited group hug and it’s adorable) but on the other hand you really feel for Albus as he becomes increasingly isolated within his family.

Harry in his office with Hermione was cute. This day was a less angry day for Jamie and I prefer when he doesn’t raise his voice too loud to Hermione about her scolding his lack of paperwork management (contrary to other scenes where the angrier he gets the more I love it, but Jamie’s nuances are a whole other post entirely). When he got home and found Amos, he really tried so hard with him. He took off his jacket, unbuttoned his waistcoat and placed his chair close to Amos, leaning forward and really trying to emotionally connect with him. 

Scorpius really went for the”Yes, a quiz!” line. I love it when he really goes for that. What a dork.

The first General Meeting: the best thing about being front row was being able to pick up things that the ensemble are saying (who don’t have microphones). When Hermione waves her wand and pulls them all toward her before releasing them, one character (played by Martin Johnston) at the back of the meeting, closest to the audience, said in an offended voice “That was unnecessary.” It made the few audience members who heard it laugh, the rest must have wondered what we laughing at. The great thing about seeing this show, or any show, multiple times is that you have the opportunity to pick up on things every time that you missed before. You realise that even the most hidden of background actors have a character and a role and a story within the scene and it brings the story into life just that little bit extra and leaves you with so much awe for just how no detail has been spared.

Act Two:

Helena Lymberry was in her normal role as Petunia. I actually prefer her cover, Lowri James, for this role but they may just be down to Lowri looking the part more. Helena’s Hooch and Umbridge are very good; I prefer her Umbridge to Lowri’s. Swings and roundabouts.

Adam McNamara was covering Bane for Nuno. He did a really good job, I thought and I’m undecided on who I prefer in the role. I will say Nuno looks that part more so I’m possibly leaning more in Nuno’s way. 

Harry, Draco and Ginny in the kitchen: I LOVED Alex in this show. He played Draco softer tonight, which is brilliant. I’ve seen James Howard cover Draco and one of the reasons I prefer him in the role is not because he is better or worse than Alex - they are both great actors - but because James plays Draco softer, and more vulnerable, which is how I imagine Draco evolving into after the journey he goes through in books 6 and 7. He still has the Malfoy swag, but he has less of the arrogance and malice that he had as a child. Alex played Draco closer to this tonight. When he told Harry ”Don’t lose the boy,” he was soft with it; he sounded so much more genuine and empathetic rather than brash. I loved it.

Having seen James Le Lacheur as Scorpius on my previous viewing of the show, the library scene always sticks out in my mind as one of the biggest differences between her performance and Anthony Boyle’s. James absolutely NAILS this scene. In particular, I love the way she delivers “Try my life!”. Up until this point she speaks at a normal volume but when she delivers that line it explodes out of her and it just stops the show. It is so, so good. James really emphasised the desperation Scorpius is in, not only over the circumstances he lives under, day in, day out, but over his best friend, not only not understanding, but up until that point, not even considering him. Anthony was back in as Scorpius which was great because I missed his adorable face, but he builds to this line rather than exploding out with and on  the whole I prefer James’s delivery of the emotion in that scene. However, Anthony plays a mentally and emotionally younger Scorpius and I love how that works within the character and his history of isolation and endears him more to the audience. A spontaneous little quirk in this scene - when Scorpius was avoiding Albus’s eyes he picked a bit of fluff off his own robes and blew it across the stage, watching it float through the air. It was adorable and spontaneous and so utterly Scorpius and it simply delighted me. Oh, and Anthony’s tears give me tears. =*(

I love Moaning Myrtle. Annabel Baldwin is brilliant and I can’t get enough of her scenes. There is another cute Harry/Ginny moment to be had here, when Myrtle is flirting with Harry and Ginny has none of it. She storms around the sink and stands right behind Harry. It’s cute because even though Harry and Ginny are already more strained at this point, Ginny still gets so possessive. I love it.

Act Three: Sometimes in the Voldemort AU, Ron does a little thumbs up when he finds out that he is married to Hermione in “the other world”. He didn’t do it last night which was a shame because it’s a cute moment.

Sitting right at the front row, you do see strings on the two dememntors that hover over the stage (but not on the one that flies over the audience). However, the people in the row behind me (BB) couldn’t see them. Other than that, not a single illusion is ruined by being that close. It’s so impressive.

Harry and Ginny had much more heated conflicts in this show. Ginny never shouts, but she almost did this time around.

The audience was very enthusiastic - it’s interesting how audiences vary from show to show. The best audience I was ever part of was undoubtedly a Thursday and Friday night audience back in September, closely followed by a Saturday audience in November. Particular moments of reaction that I love are the hug in the lake, and when Scorpius screams with joy “HARRY POTTAAAAHHHH!” when he sees Harry upon returning from the Voldemort AU.

Act Four:

The Harry/Dumbledore conversation breaks me every time. In fact, I start welling up as soon as I see Dumbledore in Part 1 when he first sets foot on stage. Every time, that is the first moment that beings tears to my eyes. The conversation Harry and Dumbledore have in Harry’s office in Part Two remains my favourite scene of the play and it slightly different every time. Jamie played Harry less angry this time (more resigned, perhaps?) and it took longer to work to the point of tears. The scene is slightly different every time I’ve seen it and Jamie is just phenomenal each time and deserves so much credit for keeping things nuanced, not just in this scene but throughout the play. Returning to the earlier mention of Alex playing Draco softer in this show - it works especially well in his scenes with Harry.

The Harry/Ginny kiss: this is an absolute show highlight for me; I always look forward to it because Jamie and Poppy have such wonderful chemistry and the love story between Harry and Ginny is so incredibly strong. The kiss is another thing that is always slightly different each time, but it never fails to make the audience swoon. You can feel the passion between these two characters, it is as tangible as the clothes they wear. @torestoreamends tells me that on the showing the previous day, the audience actually applauded the kiss. This time, Ginny ran her hands through Harry’s hair as he kissed her (I love how he cradles her face in his hands every time) and honestly, I almost fainted. I may have drooled a little. I most definitely swooned.

I’m noticing Scorpius’s adorable stutter more. It comes out when he is nervous or frustrated. I’d love to know if this was a trait Anthony found in the character on his own. In the penultimate scene of the play when Scorpius and Albus are on the stairs after Scorpius asks out Rose, as Rose approaches him and Scorpius falls over, he stuttered on the “Received and entirely understood” line and it became”R-r-r-re-received a-and entirely understood”. Rose mimicked him in response and replied with “O-oh-oh-okay!” and it was awesome. I love those spontaneous moments from the actors.

Those are the major recollections for this show. I think I might consider actually taking notes the next time I go as it’s really fun to recap it, even if no one reads it!

LL report (WARNING, it is long!)

My oh my where do I start. I went with low expectations but I have to say, I was greatly amused. I particularly enjoyed a musician, named Nitin Sawhney. His work made me enjoy the hall in it’s majesty and beauty while listening to soothing tones. But nevermind, that’s not what you all want to hear right? I had seen Steven Moffat & Sue Vertue in the hall but I decided to keep moving to my seat. At every, every pillar and every corner, there were bodyguards. It was rather quickly that BC came to read. It was a barrage of words that went so quick that I didn’t catch it all. But what I mostly remember is the mentioning of ‘a golden beacon’. For reasons of my own, that was an interesting detail. However, something caught my eye while he was reading. And that was that every bodyguard was on sharp. One crept close to us and for a moment I thought it was for me but as he looked straight through me, I followed his gaze and saw some girl recording the reading. He then crept over to her and asked her to stop. They did this every time BC read. Because they know very well that they will record him. Before the event starts, they even tell you to turn off your phones and that photography is strictly forbidden, yet for some reason, it’s really hard for people to keep themselves to that rule. 

Then I realised why I didn’t see SH in the audience. She was going to read with Louise. Louise seemed slightly agitated in her walk and didn’t really look at SH upon appearing onstage. However, when she reached her microphone, she smiled fondly. SH seemed to shuffle her way to the microphone and I wondered if there was something wrong with her legs. (I know I hit my knee to one of the chairs and that hurt like hell, but I guess that’s not the same.) She seemed a bit wooden to me and I wondered why that would be. She seemed healthy enough to me. Then she started reading. I will be the first to admit that the letter was absolutely perfect for her. And she may have acted a little extra with the way she spoke during the letter. Truth be told, I wasn’t disappointed. I was pleasantly surprised. Even more so when it became clear WHAT she was reading. It made me laugh. But not just me. Everyone laughed, but probably not for the same reason. It was a rather funny letter. Then Louise read the reply letter. The fierceness in which she replied the 'smackdown’ letter was amazing. And she slammed closed the folder in which all the letters were kept. They left the stage and Louise patted SH on the back when they went to backstage. 

Some other great performances came around. Then a strange surprise. BC read another letter. Instantly, all the bodyguards in the room took their positions. “Masturbation Habit” was his letter. I couldn’t help but laugh. It got only worse as the letter went on. It sounded a bit like Martin Crieff. Then, after a while, a singer called Emeliana has a great voice, just her nervous tick made me feel a bit uncomfortable. But that’s something I always have with performes who keep doing a certain thing. But her voice was lovely. I noticed that Adam Ackland was constantly on guard. Jamie Byng was constantly looking as well. Byng is an interesting person to me. I changed my view on him tonight. All I knew was that we regarded him as slimy but he seemed genuinely concerned with the event and if something went wrong, he was on top of it. SH was also hanging around the backstage entrance.

During Oscar Isaac’s letter, someone got escorted out due to health problems. I don’t know what happened, just that an older lady was in trouble. I guess she may have fainted or something. It distracted me quite a bit. At the interval I wanted something to drink but the queue was so long, I felt like 'hell no.’ I spoke a few words to Sue Vertue about Sherlocked and she seemed excited. I said I wasn’t sure if I would go. Back at my seat I kept my head down and tried to attract as little attention as possible. 

During the second half, the Chris & Bessie letters happened. BC got distracted and messed up, giving Louise a giggle fit. He started reading her letter and said 'oh that’s you, sorry!’. He tried hard to control the laughter. They left the stage proud and amused. Oscar Isaac did a letter by Alec Guinness which mentioned Star Wars and it was wonderfully ironic. SH had her second letter and I had a hard time not laughing when she was talking about the 'throbbing feeling under her fingers’. I have to hand it to her, she sounded more genuine and passionate in this letter than the first, where she just 'played’ a snob. But whether I like her or not, I am still a human. And I was almost ready to hand her my muesli bar, because she seemed to shake a little, or at least tried to keep standing straight and secure, while she seemed far from it. I can’t explain it properly. The walking felt forced, the standing was off. I kind of wanted to give her chocolate and get her sugar levels up. (yeah, roast me.) During her reading, Louise and Byng were looking at her. Byng seemed concerned and slightly bored. Louise looked entirely bored, and half-way through makes a bit of a weird face. As if she’s going 'whatever’. The moment SH finished and left the stage, Louise suddenly smiles and throws her hands in the air as if she’s cheering. 

BC read a fourth letter (boy I was lucky tonight!). “To my widow”. A letter about a man that’s writing a farewell to his wife and son, which he never got to finish before they froze to death, got killed by each other or starved to death. Either way, the letter was never finished and half the crowd was crying when he read it. Except the man next to me, he fell asleep. 

Most of the evening, Adam is leaning at the backstage door still. Then I see BC come out and kneel down on the floor. He gets lost from my sights and Adam laughs. We’re at the last few letters after that Emeliana and Nitin Sawhney are performing. SH comes out of the backstage door and looks at the floor, where BC is. She kneels down as well and I see Adam and the security guard both glance/look down. Both frown lightly but return their gaze back on stage. The curtain call happens and BC guides the singer and musician back on the stage, because they wanted to leave backstage, but it was curtain call time. They seemed a bit lost. BC led the crowd, bowed but made sure there were people between him and SH. When they all left for backstage, SH tried to squeeze herself next to BC to exit together, but BC shut her down by holding some man’s shoulders, talk to him, walk next to him and then behind him, leaving two people between him and SH. SH looks a little bummed but reluctantly walks after them. And that was the end of LL on Sunday the 13th of March.

SH tried really hard to 'sell’ this stuff. BC didn’t do anything for her in return. She watched two of his letters to be performed, he watched none of hers. She tried to be with him, he made sure there were people in-between. And I think he is enjoying this stupid game. I have a feeling why, but that’s not something for this submit.

Kind regards

A. Friend.
