i needed more hope in my life

Love letters


Summary: sweet Hanzo x reader fluff in which Hanzo writes you letters because he loves you and needs you to know it.

Word count: 534

Notes: first prize is my dream but as i dedicate this story to @starscloset (an inspiration to us all) the most I’m hoping for is that she likes it.

It figured that Hanzo would be the letter writing type. That he would have some of the most elegant handwriting you’d seen in your life. That he could weave words into such heartfelt sentences that you felt your breath catch and your heart skip the same way they did the first time, every time.

the letters you liked the best were the ones you received on missions, he always found a way to slip one into your bags. They were encouragement and praise. It helped to know that he believed in you and to know how he thought of you as strong and brave, and it made you eager to return to his side as soon as possible. On nights when you were apart it was always easier to sleep when you imagined Hanzo’s voice reciting his sweet words

You sometimes tease him on being such a romantic beneath so many layers of grumpiness, but you’d be damned if you said it couldn’t improve even your worst days when you returned to your room at the watch-point to find one of his notes on your pillow tucked carefully into an envelope and stamped with his family crest. Sometimes there would be a gift attached, nothing big, usually a flower, roses were most common, but you fondly remember once receiving a branch of cherry blossoms.

Some days it was hard to believe any of these paragraphs were about you at all, ‘surely my eyes don’t really “shine like the moon and stars” you thought as you re-read the newest note for the third time that night. It had to be an exaggeration to say that your lips were “as soft as the petals of a newly bloomed flower.” But when you questioned him about it he always assured you that he always meant it.

“To call you beautiful, my blossom, could never be a lie. At worst it is an understatement.” The elder Shimada said with a gentle smile.

“Flatterer” you muttered back, earning a laugh. His genuine laughter almost seemed rare and pleasant, there was little that could make you more proud than to make him truly laugh.

When you’ve finally gotten your fill of his writing for the night you put the note away in a box you’d set aside especially to protect the precious treasures. It was made from scented wood and gave a pleasant fragrance to the ever growing collection of paper and pressed flowers it held. You had always been sure to keep them all, from the early “anonymous” notes riddled with undertones of his self hatred, to the newer ones that that flowed with loving praise.

You lie down that night wondering if Hanzo would like to have a letter too. You might not be as poetic, and perhaps your penmanship wasn’t the best, but praise for the man you loved came easily. There were so many things to love about him that you were sure he’d deny, but secretly love to hear. With a smile on your face, you find yourself falling asleep as you begin to compose the first paragraph.

Perhaps you could also be the letter writing type.


Camp was great. A fun filled weekend with my best friend was what I needed. Only rained the last night we were there and I woke up drenched ! Never took apart and put the tent back in the bag so fast in my life. The closest place we had service was the town thirty minutes away from camp! Which of course we went to everyday, for coffee! Haha! I don’t think I’ll need another s'more for the rest of my life. Almost fell face first in the fire. Made lots of great memories with my best friend and his family! Can’t wait for next year.

Now all this little girl needs is daddy cuddles, Harry Potter movies and nap time! Wishful thinking!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

anonymous asked:

Hey, I know that you have a lot of asks but...would it be okay with you if I wrote red hot revolutionary? I need it in my life

God yes. Send me a link when you’re done (I’m actually itching to write more myself. I feel like I opened Pandora’s box or something)

This applies to anyone else. Just make sure you let me read see it, okay?


Because I can’t get over Lillian Luthor

… I need more Brenda Strong in my life, because hot damn. This is a little Lillian snippet. It takes place in Resist between the time that she leaves the bar and Kara comes to find her.

Hope you enjoy!


“Call me if you change your mind.”

Lillian Luthor held the throw away cell in her hand. She could see it on the young superhero’s face, the instinct to trust. Lillian schooled her features into what she thought must be care and concern. She lingered closer to Kara than necessary holding her gaze. She hoped it would communicate sincerity.

After a moment of cautious surveying, Kara took the phone from her hand and walked away. When the girl was gone, Lillian wiped the feigned worry from her face and replaced it with a sly and menacing, close-lipped grin. Kara had taken the bait. Now, Lillian just needed to be patient and let Kara come to her.

Loco x Reader - Fluff

You groaned once more and launched your pen across the room in irritation, you hated college and with exams were around the corner you were stressed and ready to drop out. Hyukwoo chuckled at the frown on your face he picked up the pen you threw and sat next to you at the kitchen table “Need some help?” You lay your head on the table “Hyukwoo, I’m dropping out! I hope you don't mind me sleeping and eating for the rest of my life.” Hyukwoo laughed at you and shook his head “Come on baby I’ll help you” You perched up and wrapped your arms around his torso, he patted your back and ran a hand through your hair.

“You can’t give up now! How about a break?” You snuggled into his chest and sighed as you knew a break wouldn’t be much help. You let go of him and stared down at your books, not understanding a single word you decided to at least try. Hyukwoo smiled at your determination, even though you were in the middle of a break down ready to give up, you never did. It was one of the many qualities he loved about you. 

Hyukwoo stayed with you, he quietly observed you as your eyebrows furrowed at something you didn’t understand to how you bit your lip when you were concentrating. He smiled at your soft sighs and how your hair hung flawlessly around your face. 

“You’re beautiful” You raised your head to stare at Hyukwoo while thinking about the words that dropped out his mouth so effortlessly. He gave you a loving smile as you said nothing to him, you tucked a piece of hair behind your ear and licked your lips. The silence was serene, the man in front of the only important thing right now, who cares about exams when you have a loving boyfriend in your life. 

“Shouldn’t you be focusing on your work?” You shook your head as you let your mouth fall open, he was beautiful yet you couldn't bring yourself to tell him. He chuckled as he stared back at you with the same adoration and love that you did “Have I ever told you how beautiful you are?” His cheeks flushed a red as he listened to the words you spoke, he shook his head and leant closer to you. You abandoned your pen and shifted your body towards him “You really are” The exams long forgotten about the books in front no longer valued as you gazed into your boyfriend’s captivating eyes. 

Hyukwoo kissed your cheek and stroked it with his thumb “Come on, let’s study” You smiled as Hyukwoo didn’t need to be here with you, he could be out with his friends or doing his own work, but here he was being supportive and loving as always. You stared back at your books but with less resentment and irritation you picked up your pen and started scribbling down notes finally feeling confident that you can pass these exams, especially with Hyukwoo by your side. 

a/n this wasn't really what you requested but isss cute soo…. 

  • The good are never easy: Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn
  • The easy never good: Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra
  • Love it never happens like you think it really should: Cancer, Sagittarius, Aquarius, Pisces

I don’t know why I was shaking so badly, your my best friend thats always there for me, and part of the family I have needed for so long in my life. I hope I didn’t embarrass myself, but I am so glad to finally get to meet you and get a hug! It meant so much more than you will ever realize, and I am forever grateful that you exist. Who knows maybe we will meet again someday!

Day One Hundred and Sixteen

-At the start of my shift, we had a team huddle to discuss store business matters. The first matter, and most important, was us all sampling the new Unicorn Frappuccino. A quality meeting, if I have ever been to one.

-An elderly woman remarked to me that it smelled like something was burning and asked if someone had burned popcorn. As a result, she spent the remainder of the transaction cackling to herself. If she thought that her joke was a funny one, I believe I may have finally found a good audience for my comedy.

-A Chubby Puppy wind-up toy was left at my register. I have named her Juniper and I love her, inability to walk in anything but a circle and all.

-In regards to the card reader before him, an older gentleman noted, “This seems like a pretty nice keyboard. I think I can solve it.” He inspires a great deal of faith in me. I think he can solve it, too.

-An older woman asked me if anything that she had purchased was on Cartwheel. I told her that I did not know off the top of my head, at which point she responded by glaring at me threateningly and telling me that I looked smart, so I had better be sure and I had better be right. Luckily, I know very few things in life, so it is more than likely that Cartwheel offers fall into this category.

-A couple bantered over how much they had each spent. The woman, having bought the most, said, “It makes sense, you are cheaper than me.” After a moment, the man replied, “I’m trying to think of something to say, but you drove and you’re paying.” Not since Machiavelli has one held all of the cards so masterfully.

-A sweet grandfatherly man, sporting a pinstripe shirt that seemed to have been with him as long as his timeless smile, came through holding a purple and yellow rubber ball. He asked me if I thought it would be good for four square before pausing for a moment and asking me if I knew what four square is. Overjoyed when I said yes, he told me of his plans to teach the neighborhood kids and help them be more active. He then said that he was going to go let his friends know that the ball would work. I later saw him with a pair of women, each as happy and smiling as himself. This man knows all that one needs in life, and I hope to one day learn from him.

-A young girl noted Juniper by my register and asked if she could pet her. I naturally said yes, as long as she was careful. Gently cupping the pup in her hands, she complimented me on how soft my plastic friend was.

I treat people like tourists. I present myself like I’m some kind of living brochure. I describe the lighter places inside of my head, the things I love, the things that keep me afloat. I don’t discuss the shady parts, things like the fear that engulfs me anytime I get close enough to a person to want to do more than just text them. If I don’t feel like talking will get the job done, I let my smile and body language do the speaking for me, or I try my best to make sure I’m not seen in the first place. I hope that one day I will no longer feel the need to sell myself.

loving a football team is so weird. you dedicate your fucking life to a group of people you will never meet. they lose, you are devastated. they win, you are elated. you have absolutely no influence on what happens, but still they are so important to you. you love a football team and it changes your life and all just because 11 players manage to score more goals than the other 11 players

A Letter to my Ex Best Friend

Sorry for any grammatical errors. I haven’t edited it yet so I’m sorry in advance lolll. But this is something very personal that I wrote today and hopefully someone else could relate. 


I was going through my memory box today and a lot of stuff that involved you came up.  It brought me back to the good times and I almost texted you but then I remembered that you’re just a stranger now. It’s been a couple months since we last talked. Crazy huh? How in just a year we went from being inseperable to complete strangers. If someone had asked us a year or two ago if we could see our life without each other in it, we would have laughed and said no; Now here we are.

I would be lying if I said I haven’t thought about you or that I didn’t miss you. I do miss you, a lot. So much has happened since we last talked, and I wish I could share it all with you. There has been times where I picked up my phone to text you but then I would remember you’re not that person anymore; And it’s sad because for the longest time it seemed like you’d be that person who stayed in my life for a long while. I miss being close with your family and being able to call your home my home as well. I miss having the privilege of saying I had more than one family. It’s crazy how much can change in a short amount of time.

I hope you don’t hate me for walking away when I did. I hope one day you understand that I had to or else we would have never known just how toxic our friendship had been. There is quite a few things I know I could have done better and shouldn’t have done, same goes for you. We are both to blame for our friendship being as unhealthy as it was. Though it was so unhealthy, we shared a lot of great memories and I’d like to think it was equally good as it was bad.

I’m sorry. I’m sorry we’re not best friends anymore and I’m sorry I had to be the one to walk away. I’m sorry for any pain I caused. I’m sorry I couldn’t be your person anymore. I’m sorry we couldn’t do everything we wanted to. I’m sorry I tried to blame you for our friendship ending. I’m sorry I tried to hate you because damn did I try. I tried so hard and for awhile it worked because hating you and being mad at you was easier than missing you. But I realize that I could never hate you, no matter how mad I am about what happened. I’m sorry this is how it had to end for us, but that’s life for you. Not everything goes the way it should or how you want it to.

But I would like to thank you. Thank you for being my person for as long as you were. Thank you for being patient with me while I learned how to trust another person. Thank you for the memories I will never forget. Thank you for caring enough to break through the walls I had worked so hard to build over the years. Thank you for being the person I could run to for everything and anything. Thank you for being the person I could count on. Thank you for being the person I could confide in without the fear of judgement. Thank you for teaching me how to love and be loved. Thank you for showing me that I can still trust others and be trusted. Thank you for proving to me that people come into our lives for a reason and though they may not stay, the lessons learned are a blessing.

I would like to say I can see us being friends again in the future but I’d only be spitting out false hope. It would never be the same and if I happen to see you one day, I’ll smile and walk away. My heart will break a little and all our memories will hit me like a train but I’ll feel grateful for the time we did have together. Some people aren’t meant to stay in your life forever and unfortunately I learned you are one of those people. They say some people only come into your life to teach you a lesson and leave, but the most important people leave a mark. Well you left a mark and I am thankful for you coming into my life when you did.

I know you may never see this but I needed to get it off my chest. There were a lot of words unsaid and a lot of words I wish I could have said. I guess I’m writing this to get a small sense of closure for myself.

I hope you and your family are doing well. I hope you get everything you want and more in the life you chose for yourself.

You’ll always hold a place in my heart.


Your Ex Best Friend

So let me tell you about this guy I know, he is so perfect in every way humanly possible. Not only in physical form but his heart is so beautiful, so delicate, so pure and so big.

He makes the simplest of things seem interesting, the most plain things appear beautiful. He makes me smile and laugh so hard my own stomach can’t contain it.

He makes me feel so special not because he makes me feel wanted but he makes me feel needed. He makes me feel like as if i’m an irreplaceable woman. He has restored hope and kindness into my heart.

He is the type of guy you meet and hope for your dear life you won’t ever lose him. He is the sunrise in the morning, the breath of fresh air and the calm after the storm.

He is the prince every girl dreams about, he is magnetic I just can’t help but find myself attached to him. He is like an addiction I can’t seem to get enough of and only crave more of him.

He is not only my lover, he is my bestfriend, my soulmate, my future, the one I want to buy a house with, raise a family with, build an empire with.

He is love, he is hope
Without him, i simply,
Would not cope.

I love him.

I swear this fanfiction gives me so much life. 

Fic- I’ll Protect You link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/9193691/chapters/20860172

flashback to chapter 1! I love this story @lattemika, I hope you update soon!

other tips for new cat owners / people who may get cats soon:

no, getting a grown cat won’t be boring / less cute! they’ll become just as attached to you as a kitten. get a cat that speaks to you (literally or figuratively, maybe you want a cat that’s chatty). older cats will be so appreciative to have a home. 
people get rid of their cats for all kinds of unfair reasons. just the ones i’ve seen on the craigslist listings in the last 5 minutes: “i am just more of a dog person (7mo old kitten)”, “we hoped she would get over her kittenish behavior, she has not (2yr old cat)”, “i need to get rid of my cat before my baby is born (3yr old cat)”.
you can totally pick up a beautiful, loving, grown up kitty who will be needing some comfort after getting dumped. just look at this girl.

(taken off craigslist) she would be more than happy to live her cat life with you. is she not cute? she is. she is cute. so, ultimately, adopt whatever cat you like, but don’t rule out older cats!

nextly: no no, do NOT declaw your cat. DON’T DO IT. I’M TELLIN YA.
it’s a deeply painful procedure, actually removing the entire first knuckle, not JUST the nail. it causes long-term and potentially permanent pain in the cat, and can lead to nasty infections, behavioral problems, and helplessness if they ever find themselves outside and in need of protection or climbing abilities.
“but i don’t want my cat to scratch me / my kid / my furniture!” okay, i feel you, but there are other, cheaper, less inhumane options. my favorite of which are claw caps.

you gently press on your cat’s foot (to unsheath their claws), and place the soft cap onto their claw using the glue that’s included in any soft paw kit you get. it might take some getting used to on the cat’s part, but it should under no circumstances be painful, and when the kitty’s claws grow, the cap just kinda falls off, and you’ll put another one on.
you can also file or clip their nails down! if you’re too nervous or clumsy to do it, your vet will usually do it for a small fee, or a groomer can take care of it. Personally, I just let my cats’ claws hang out and accept the pokes when they knead on me, since i don’t have any little babies or expensive upholstery in my home. 

No, cats ain’t “low maintenance”. This is a living, social creature, not a chiapet. Especially if you’re raising them from kittenhood, they need a lot of attention and resources. cuddles, playtime, training, health care, feeding, cleaning up their facilities. you get a pet to interact with, not to buy and leave it be! a cat that you don’t socialize is going to be very moody and sad. get a pet if you plan to invest the time and energy they need- if not, maybe we can come back to that cactus idea? 

Cats need meat. I repeat, cats cannot survive without meat. Dogs need meat too- but cats are incapable of creating taurine in their own, and where do you find taurine? meat! hallelujah!! 
Feeding cats a vegan or vegetarian diet is a slow form of starvation and animal abuse. If you’re not comfortable feeding an animal meat, please do not adopt a carnivore. There are plenty of vegetarian mammals that you would be much better suited owning, but do not abuse your cats just because of your own feelings about protein. 
Without enough taurine in a cat’s diet, severe health problems will follow, like blindness, weak and decaying teeth, weak heart, and digestive issues. This is terrible. This objectively sucks. So pretty please give your cat a proper diet!

It’s way way safer to have an indoor cat. I don’t need you to tell me that you want your cat to be with you for many years, ‘cause I already know you do. Outdoor cats are exposed to wild animals, animal abusers, poisonous substances, cars, harsh weather, kidnapping, and diseases. Cats like rolling around in grass and grabbing birds from trees, and that’s great, but having an outdoor cat makes for a steep decrease in their estimated lifespan. The average lifespan of an indoor cat is 16.8 years, whereas outdoor cats average out to a hard-hitting 5.6. Ouch. 
So it’s definitely safer to keep a cat indoors! If you’re adopting a young kitten, it won’t be hard, since they won’t be expecting outdoor time already. If you’re still really into that whole grass idea, you should totally grow some indoor grass for your cat to chill in. 


that’s everything i can think of for the moment, but please don’t be afraid to do your own research on animal care. there are tons of resources out there, and if you have a good vet, they’ll answer any questions you have! 

thank you for readin’ about cat care. as a reward, i’m adding a picture of toby as a baby. enjoy.
