Summary: Lance is Allura’s younger brother. During the mission to retrieve the Red Lion from Galra hands, he gets captured. His guard is a curious Galra halfbreed named Keith who may just be his ticket to freedom. He’s a bit small for an alpha, but Lance is sure he can handle it. A little flirting never hurt anyone after all. The fact Keith is good looking for a Galra and those ears wiggle (so cute!) doesn’t influence this decision. Nope. Not one bit. Series: 4 Works Work 1 WC: 61497 (19/19) Work 2 WC: 111883 (32/32) Work 3 WC: 133875 (42/42) Work 4 WC: 71480 (21/?) Notes: THIS IS LIKE THE ONLY FIC I HAVE WITH ALTEAN!LANCE AND GALRA!KEITH. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME. gahgldfkjhsa;d, ok so this is just an amazing series, some nsfw tossed in btw, youve been wared. but over all, i just love this series so much and i need to like catch really bad… i didnt know work3 or 4 even existed… >.< 11/10
Summary: It was his fault. He shouldn’t have retreated – he should have ran after them, Galra forces be damned, and ripped the red paladin right out of his weaponized hands, shooting the commander dead on the spot.But he hadn’t. Lance stood there, frozen with adrenaline and fear, before backing out with tears in his eyes, justifying it to himself by saying, ‘he won’t get far, we can easily get him back once I have Voltron with me.’He’d forgotten they didn’t have Voltron. He’d forgotten that without Keith, Voltron was nothing.Keith is Galra. Keith is gone. Keith is Galra. Keith is gone. WC: 28197 Notes: -hands over some tissues- here you will need these. 100/10
Summary: After Keith discovers he is part Galra and Red lion rejects him, there’s only one way he can make himself useful: to join Galra and try to wreck them from the inside, while figuring out a relationship with a guy who turns out to be his biological father. A comic about one stubborn man’s self-discovery, the challenges of spying, everyone in team Voltron being BAMF, and the universe that needs saving, as usual. WC: comic, so no words counted by AO3 (11/?) Notes: Galra Keith because Thace is some kinda of scientist? Uhm yes please. 10/10
Summary: “Oh trust me. When I’m done with you, I won’t be able to stop laughing,” Lance says lowly, and his lips curl farther, and there’s something wild in his stare, and it hits Keith suddenly.This isn’t Lance. Lance falls under the control of Zarkon’s Druids, and although his friends manage to get him back, nothing is quite the same. Maybe the Galra succeeded after all. Maybe the Galra merely wanted to tear Team Voltron apart from the inside. WC: 49072 (12/12) Notes: Rip Lance tbh, this is like really angsty and my heart breaks for Lance. but yes, galra keith is there to save the day~ 10/10
Summary: “Concept,” Lance said, his voice heavy and gutted with the ache of it; he caught Keith’s gaze and smiled wide, for show. “The war’s over. We’re back home. All the things we love in one place.”Lance keeps losing the things he’s built. Then there’s Keith. WC: 30776 Notes: -cackles- have some tissues my friend 100/10
Summary: Years after peace has been made between the Galran and Altean kingdoms, The witch Haggar comes for vengeance. The young symbol of peace, the half-galran, half-altean Prince Kalor is lost. His aunt, Princess Allura, and his bodyguard, Shiro, are heartbroken.10 years later, an orphan named Keith sets out on his own, trying to find the key to his past. All he has to help him is a small figurine with a cryptic message, a friendly engineer, a technician and her friendly robot, and a cocky con man with a mysterious, yet familiar past. WC: 35154 (14/14) Notes: the anastasia au everyone talks about. and like galtean keith gives me life, but conman Lance gives me more. 10/10
Summary: One decision by an injured soldier changes not only the fate of the universe, but the fate of her young son.
WC: 18010 (6/6) Notes: Smol Keith is like my fav, hes so cute in this. and Ulaz being a dad just heals my heart, like bless. 11/10
Summary: Everyone knew their kitten was destined for something greater.No one guessed it was Voltron. WC: 26639 (20/20) Notes: Keith raised by the BoM technically makes him Galra right? xD Hahah no, he does have ties, but yeah i love this, hes a sheltered little shit and its great. 9/10
Summary: Mark #223-code-violet, Lance’s newest job, is not what the sniper signed up for when he joined team Voltron, a specialist group designed to take out the universe’s worst of the worst. This mark shouldn’t be any different from the other Galra, but he is. And Lance is having a very hard time. WC: 52377 (12/?) Notes: Sniper Lance and Galra Keith. literally one of my fav pairings. like straight up (tho nothing about this is straight in any sense really) 11/10
Summary: He scoffed as he watched the fight below, the crowds going wild at the two fighters in the arena. They had such poor taste for entertainment these days.He heard a small sound of amusement from the one sitting next to his standing form, ever vigilant.“As if you were any better your first time in the arena.” They murmured under their breath, a small smile sneaking onto their face, pupiless gold eyes focused on the fight below, but their attention solely on the person standing guard next to him.“I must have have been somewhat impressive to catch the eyes of a certain prince now wasn’t I?"The prince snuck a glance towards the taller, whose face was hidden behind the helmet they wore."You caught a lot more than just my eye that’s for sure.” WC: 5947 (4/?) Notes: i,, just love this fic? Like Galra Prince Keith and Champion Lance, you can’t really get much better than this. 10/10
Summary: Galra biology differs from human biology in many ways. For example, Galra are purple. They have yellow eyes. The mammalian ones are able to purr.They also lack tear ducts. WC: 586 Notes: this is short and sweet (read angsty sorry not sorry) 8/10
Summary: “Wait, what that doesn’t make any sense.” Hunk protested.Pidge shook her head with a tsk. “It does if one of us is disguised as Allura.”Pidge flashed a smirk in Lance’s direction. “I’m sorry, why are you looking at me?” Lance protested. Something in Keith’s brain clicked, he looked at Lance and then at the Princess.Put a little make up on him, a wig, and a dress and he could- OH my god. WC: 33596 (6/6) Notes: Tbh, this made me giggle so much. Lance dressed as Allura and Keith and his gay awakening™ just give me life ok. 10/10
I told an anon that I wouldn’t be doing this, yet here we are. This fic rec list is dedicated to fandom’s dedication to mutual pining + tropes that shove Cassian and Jyn together. All are either post-Scarif AUs, or canon missing scenes.
Of all the Cartoon Network shows, which ones do you think had the most consistent quality?
Let me preface this by saying… obviously nothing against PPG because it’s my favorite show forever and is perfect and lovely, but yeah… S5 + S6… were just not… the best. And the quality definitely dipped when Craig started working on Foster’s and, although it makes sense that they kept the series going ‘cause CN wanted more episodes, it just wasn’t as good after that. Which really sucks!
But I’d say Ed, Edd, ‘n’ Eddy. I haven’t watched the show in years but I remember it being absolutely consistent in quality across the board, and it just kept getting better and better. I seriously don’t think that show ever jumped the shark, even when they switched up the plot from summer vacation to them being in school. And I think it’s mostly ‘cause Danny Antonucci worked on it the whole time and was able to give consistent direction.
Hey guys! So today, I will be doing a theory dedicated to our favourite aquatic character from our childhood, SpongeBob Square Pants! Before I start, I have a quick notice to begin with. Due to my hectic workload and exams, I won’t be posting regularly for the next two-to-three weeks. You should probably expect two or three theories per week at minimum. I’m really sorry about this and also, this is my third attempt to upload this because the Tumblr Gods are not on my side today. ): But anyways, thanks for all the love and support I received! So, lets get back to the theory!
Note: My third and final attempt to upload this theory and rewriting this from scratch. Wish me good luck!
Note #2: My fourth time now. Luckily half of it got saved… I am losing the will to live.
SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. The series chronicles the adventures and endeavors of the title character and his various friends in the fictional underwater city of Bikini Bottom. The series’ popularity has made it a media franchise, as well as the highest rated series to ever air on Nickelodeon, and the most distributed property of MTV Networks. As of 2015, the media franchise has generated $12 billion in merchandising revenue for Nickelodeon. It has gotten so popular that in 2011, a newly described species of fungi, Spongiforma squarepantsii, was named after the cartoon’s title character.
A Krabby Patty is a popular burger served at the Krusty Krab. It is the best-known food at the Krusty Krab, and the most famous burger in Bikini Bottom. It’s so popular that the shows protagonist, Plankton, tries to steal it in order for vengeance on Mr. Krab (his former friend) and to improve the restaurants success. Despite his noteable efforts, he is constantly thwarted by SpongeBob and his friends!
After many minutes of research, I have created the “Ultimate Krabby Patty Secrect Formula!”
Seeded seaweed buns - contains a specific number of sesame seeds, usually there are 11 sesame seeds.
Imitation crab meat patty.
2 teaspoons chopped celery
2 teaspoons chopped onion
4-6 teaspoons of vegetable oil
1 teaspoons of thyme
1 teaspoons of raspberry
1 Lb frozen imitation crab meat *defrosted and smashed in a food processor*
A tiny portion of “chum!
Jellyfish Jelly - in Jelly Patty only.
4 cups of seasoned bread crumbs
1 tablespoons of mustard Dijon.
1 tablespoons of mayonnaise plus more for dipping sauce.
Sea salt and pepper *to taste*
And, that’s the ever so “secret” formula. One ingredient that’s to be rumoured in the recipe is “King Neptune’s Poisedon Powder.“ But, what if I tell you that that’s not the secret ingredient of a Krabby Patty? What if there is no secrect ingredient and that the whole idea of this was devised by Mr. Krabs to distract Plankton.
Think about it. Mr. Krabs is a money-loving man who won an award for being the “Cheapest Crab of the Year” award. Why would he want to spend extra money on an item so rare that it has never been mentioned (not once) in the show? Plus, it has the name “King Neptune’s” so it is probably going to be expensive. If King Neptune would want to maximise his royalities he would get (in which he would), he would set the ingredient a higher price and we know that Mr. Krabs “loves” buying things. In fact, he sleeps with money under his mattress. No joke!
Until next time!
(I hate playing catch up with my life. after this gets posted, I got to do two more theories - the struggles.)
hey french speaking followers Could you recommend me movies or series which have like slow french? Something easy to understand? Or other things I should do to slowly refresh and expand my french skills?
I had french for a long time and I hated it mostly because I HAD to learn it. Now I would like to get back into it. For English series and movies worked just fine. Sooo do you have recommendations?
I really wish that they had just kept OUaT *smaller.* I’ve said at length before that I think s1 should have ended with EMMA realizing the truth (and waking Henry and all that) and possibly magic being restored to the town. Previously I when I talked about this it was only in regards to season two, but I think the whole series should have stayed that way. Only Emma, Regina, Henry, and Gold know the truth. Because of this and Henry, Emma and Regina become reluctant allies and eventually friends (coughthenloverscough). Emma has to deal with knowing who her parents are and them not knowing who she is. Emma has to actually be the savior by guiding Storybrooke residents back to their true selves (for example, when Ruby realized she belonged with Granny, that would be when she gets her memories back). The entire series could have gone on like this, with each episode focusing on various characters and how to help them rediscover their best self to regain their memories. Meanwhile, magic is causing problems because it is unpredictable and also most people don’t even know it exists. There could be an on going struggle of Emma trying to figure out what it is she needs to do to make her parents remember. And while it would be semi-episodic, the over arching drama would be the character relationships and development, instead of constantly trying to defeat bigger and badder threats. Basically, I wish it had been what I signed up to watch in the first season. I think it could have been great without trying to cram in so much grandeur
Hello, my journalers! I am making another long list of bullet journal ideas. If you’d like to see my first list, click [here]. I had 30 ideas on that list, so be sure to check that one out!
1. Books To Read
There are so many cute ways to create this section.
2. All About Me Pages
These are some of my favorite pages to make. They can be simple and to the point, or colorful and complex. You do you and show off that you! Here’s a [link] to the post I made about my pages.
3. Future Log
Having a yearly spread of what you are planning, need to plan, or just simply feel organized will help you feel less stressed about the coming year. I’ve seen a few ways how to set up a future log, but I chose the one that works best for my life. Mine has gotten a bit messy and only has the rest of 2016.
4. Movies to Watch
There are so many good movies coming out soon, and so many movies I just haven’t gotten around to see. If you’re like me and love coloring in blocks to show progress, then I suggest to set up the page sort of like mine. (But you can also do it any number of ways as well.) Here’s a [link] to my post about creating a movie/tv tracker)
5. Skills to Learn
I imagine a simple checklist can work. If you like to be more detailed oriented, you can make it more like a progress log.
6. Important Phone Numbers/Addresses
Much like an address book, you can make pages in your bullet journal for the same function. Most people put numbers and addresses into their phones, but sometimes it’s just nice to have them written down someplace else.
7. Year In Pixels
If you’d like to see an explanation of this page idea, click this [link].
8. Fonts, Banners, and Frame Ideas
I think it’s convenient to have a few pages that act as a cheat sheet for your designing needs.
9. Snail Mail Log
This is something that I am totally going to do soon, and possibly even include you all in on it. I want to start a mailing list for sending letters to more people. I love getting mail from family and friends, but it doesn’t happen often enough!
10. Savings Tracker
This is such a lovely idea to keep in your journal. Be sure to stay on top of your finances! I like to keep an extra page for things I need to pay off or people to pay back.
11. Favorite Lists
This could also go in your “All About Me” section, but I decided it should be separate for me. You can list things like your favorite restaurants, meals, songs, classes, sounds, tastes, places, shoes, animals, colors, instruments, plays, games, etc. Get to know yourself better.
12. TV Series Tracker
This is for those people who want to feel like they just want physical proof of how many times they’ve watched that series on Netflix. Here’s a [link] to my post about making your own.
13. Monthly Challenges
These are so much fun to make for you all. If you want to add a challenge to your journal, click [here] for my master list of challenges.
14. Music Playlists
You can make playlists on your phone with various apps, but there’s something sweet about writing out your favorite songs. You can create a workout, relaxing, studying, writing, etc. playlists.
15. Timeline of Your Life
Use two pages for this one because it will be filled by the time you are done. You can even use this for what you want to do in the future.
16. Inspiration Page
Quotes, songs, people, pictures, charts, graphs, jokes, scripture, events, love, etc. WRITE THEM DOWN, BE INSPIRED, AND GO DO.
17. Self Care List/Ideas
Sometimes we don’t know how to make ourselves feel better. Write a list of things you could try to do to help yourself become a healthier you. Examples: take a warm bath, go for a walk, drink a glass of water, watch a sad movie, etc.
18. Monthly/Yearly Memories
It’s nice to have a page with all the memories you had that month/year. I tend to put a little doodle with each event/milestone in my life just to make it more memorable. (This was from my first journal. Please don’t judge.)
19. Sleep Tracker
I personally don’t use a sleep tracker because my sleeping habits are the worst and logging them might be upsetting to me. However, you can track the time you go to bed and what time you get up in the morning on a chart that is easy to read and compare with other nights.
20. Me Time Log
Sometimes we all need a little time to ourselves. You can use this with the “Self Care List/Ideas” pages to log specific activities you do with yourself. You can keep track of the activity, when you do to, and how long your me time was.
21. Tiny Adventures
Not exactly real adventures, but adventurous enough to get you out of your comfort zone. To see the original post about these adventures, click [here].
22. Word Tracker
For those authors and poets, keeping a goal sheet or tracker of your words helps a ton!
Summary: She was the Queen of Sokovia, and he was the future king of Romania. Their relationship was full of hate towards one another, but will it change when his heart gets broken by a traitor to both of your powerful countries?
Pairing: Bucky Barnes x Reader
Warnings: angst, there isn’t much fluff in this series, is there?
Word Count: 1407
A/N: Here is part four! The series tags are almost closed. but the permanent is open if you want to be on it. i will be leaving for Upstate New York on Thursday so im going to try and post as much as i can before then.

“You brought a Russian into this palace? Into this country!
They have been enemies of both of our countries since before I was born!” Y/N
shouted to the bewildered royals.
“Just stop it!” James yelled.
“You know nothing about her! You have been here all of two
seconds and are already tearing this place apart! She has no affiliation with
Russia. She has not been there since she was adopted by Nick. She is a nice and
kind girl. She will be my future wife!” James continued to scream.
The King and Queen were now just witnesses to a screaming
match between the engaged couple.
A/N: AHHHHHHHH, I told y'all I’d be back for a sequel. I’m hoping this sequel gets just as much attention as the first series did, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed. If you’ve read the first series, then you already know that I’m all about drama and that’s exactly what this series is gonna be. Anyway, this is the first chapter and you all should look forward for many to come. If you’ve read the first series you know that I need 100 notes and feedback for the next chapter. Enjoy my lil nuggets💕
Oh and most of this chapter is in italics because they’re flashbacks.
**WARNING**: Nothing besides profanity, but I’m sure you knew that
The moment you found out you were pregnant you knew that shit was about to hit the fan.You weren’t just the average twenty year old, barely financially stable college student. No. You were also the girlfriend of a famous rockstar who is in a world famous band. Plus, you also happened to sleep with his best friend and bandmate before finding out you were pregnant, therefore have no clue who’s baby it is. On top of that you were being watched, loved, and even hated by millions of people daily. Oh, and how could you forget that you were helping your best friends plan their wedding as well? Life couldn’t be any better right?
So, here you are in your living room trying to ignore your overwhelming emotions by catching up on Supernatural and eating for two while your boyfriend is out somewhere angrily driving around on the streets. Oh, and what led him to doing that was catastrophic.
Let’s start from the very beginning, shall we? Only three weeks after you first found out about the new life growing inside of you.
Summary – You and
Steve were supposed to have spent the rest of your lives together, but lies and
betrayal tore you apart. A family tragedy forces you to leave your life
in the city and return to the Montana ranch you used to call home. Can you and
Steve forget the past and find love again?
Warnings – None
Word Count – 2,144
Notes – I’ve finally gotten back to writing this fic
and now I remember why I was so excited about this one! This is going to be some major romantic
drama!! I have so many plans for this
fic and I can’t wait for you guys to read it!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy!! As
always, feel free to leave me any comments or feedback!
“Maybe not,” Bucky acknowledged,
“but there is something that you need to know before we go any further.”
Bucky was always good
at keeping a straight face, so the anxious look in his eyes instantly had you
worried. “What do I need to know?”
“You’re not going to
like this, (Y/N),” he began, refusing to look you in the eye. “Your dad made Steve the ranch foreman five
A chill went down your spine as you stared at your friend,
your eyes wide in disbelief. “Please
tell me you’re joking.”
“I’m sorry, doll, it’s true.” Bucky seemed to be debating
with himself before finally giving in and continuing. “I will tell you this. Ste. . He was hesitant to take the job at
first, but needed the money and Wolf Creek is one of the best. Not as good as South Hills, but it’s okay.”
I’m in a reading slump so regularly, it feels like I hardly read anything at all. They’re honestly one of the reasons why I’m a slow reader and why I don’t read that many books in a year.
Weeks go by where I don’t pick up a book and it’s sad that I don’t want to do something I love. Soon as I’m in a slump, I’m in no mood to read, I’m not tackling my overflowing TBR and things are spiraling out of control!
I feel like I’m being over dramatic but I can see the pile of ARCs and review books I need to read… People ask how I manage all the ARCs that need reviewing and the truth is, I don’t. I just have to take my time and read whenever I feel like it.
I’ve noticed a lot things can easily put me in a slump and affects how much I read or if I want to read. But I have some tricks I try when I feel like that. Sometimes they work and sometimes they don’t but I thought I’d make a post about them - it might help if you’re prone to reading slumps like me.
1. Sample A Chapter
If there’s a book you’ve been meaning to pick up for a while, or there’s a few books on your TBR that have been there for ages - pick it up and read the first chapter.
I have this strange habit or reading the first few pages whenever I get a new book, just to get a taste of what it’s like. And usually, those few pages make me want to keep reading.
Just sample the first couple pages to see if it hooks you right away. If it does and you find yourself wanting to read more, that’s great! But if it doesn’t, just put down and read the first chapter of another book. This isn’t starting and DNFing a bookjust after one chapter so, don’t think of it as that. Because in future, you’ll pick it up again and possibly enjoy it a lot more than you would have in a slump.
So, if that chapter isn’t working for you, don’t keep reading it or forcing yourself. You’ll dislike the book just because of your slump and it’ll ruin what potentially could have been an amazing book if you’d read it any other time.
Just reading a first chapter has helped me a lot. Not every book with be interesting, so I pick up another one hoping it’ll keep me reading. It’s like letting the book give a 60 second pitch as to why you should read it next. Maybe it’ll work for you, maybe not.
2. Re-read A Favourite Book
There’s something comforting about re-reading a favourite book because I know I’ll love it, and I’m always excited to dive back into a familiar world. I’ve picked up the Harry Potter books or The Infernal Devices since I love those series and it would get me back into a routine of reading again.
If you have a favourite book that’s comforting, just pick it up and read it. You’ll be happy to be back with those characters. I feel like I could grab any Harry Potter book and sink into the story, I don’t need to go in chronological order if I don’t want to, but just enjoy the familiarity.
It probably won’t help reduce your TBR and you might not like re-reading when you have so many new books to get through, but there’s something about re-reading a book you really love.
Can’t find a new book to read? Might as well enjoy one you know and love.
3. Listen to Audiobooks
I will always stand by Audiobooks since they’re a fantastic way to read. They’ve helped me out of slumps, and made me read more and quicker than I usually do. I even recommended listening to books on my Being A Slow Reader blogpost so, make sure to go check that out if you haven’t.
I always listen to music when I’m out, on the bus, or on my way to work that I’ve started listening to books instead. I can read a chapter, maybe more during my journey and it’s such an efficient way to read.
It can help with slumps too. You can multitask whilst listening, or maybe you’ll enjoy the fact someone is reading the book to you as it can be quite calming. You can bump up the speed and read a book faster. Because it’s such a quick way to read by listening, you’re instantly immersed in the book and you’ll be hooked before you even know it.
Honestly, just listening to a book has gotten me out of slumps without realising it. I always found myself putting my headphones in to continue the story.
You should give audiobooks a try. It’s a new format of reading and maybe you’ll like a change from physical books or ebooks. But remember to sample the narration before getting an audiobook and make sure you like it. It’s something I always do because the narration can make a difference to your reading experience.
4. Pick A Hyped Book
I see hyped books all over my social media. New releases or upcoming books that people are loving. I’ll see this book popping up everywhere and everyone is raving about it, for good reason.
Whenever this happens, I trust a book to live up to my expectations. It’s so highly praised, I know there’s a bigger chance of me enjoying it like everyone else did.
I’m not saying everyone loves the same books, there are plenty of popular books I don’t like. But the book’s been getting great reviews for a reason - and a good book that’s been getting 4 and 5 stars is what you need to get you out of a slump.
I read Caraval by Stephanie Garber after a ton of people could not stop talking about it and telling me how amazing it was. I ended up reading it and yes, I loved it. My timeline was filled with praise for Caraval that I went in with high hopes, trusting that I would like it and I did. After I started reading it, I couldn’t stop and now I’m waiting for the sequel.
Pick up a book that everyone’s enjoying and hopefully, you’ll love it, too. It’s worth a shot!
5. Don’t Force It
Don’t force yourself to read when you’re in a slump. You’re already in no mood to pick up a book and making yourself read will feel like a chore.
You can try these little tricks in this blogpost but if they don’t work, you’ll have to wait until you naturally feel like reading.
This last one isn’t a tip but some advice, I guess? It’s like when you had to do required reading at school and it was the last thing you wanted to do. Forcing yourself to read isn’t fun.
And that’s it for my tips! I hope you found this helpful, or let me know if you already do some of the things I listed.
I’d love to know your thoughts or how you get out of your reading slumps if I haven’t mentioned it above.
Thank you so much for reading, I really appreciate any likes, reblogs and comments!
You listen to the conversation through the open window. “I honestly don’t get the appeal.”
Damian just scoffs, “That’s no surprise Todd. This life isn’t for everyone.”
Tim just laughs, “Says the guy dressed like Andy Griffith? You should have named your kid Opie.”
You smile to yourself before moving back to the kitchen table. You smile at the woman sitting there. “You ready to pull your hair out yet?”
Selina just smirks, “You’re crazy. You do realize that, right?”
You shrug, “For wanting a normal life?”
She shakes her head, “No. For actually marrying Bruce Wayne’s demon spawn.”
You just stare at her, “You married his father.”
She stares right back at you, “I got lonely without you around.”
You lean back into your chair, “And now you’re a combination aunt/ grandmother.”
“Don’t call me the G-word.” She simply hisses, and you can’t help but laugh.
The two of you go silent for a few minutes. You listen to the guys talking outside, and then you say, “I’m glad you guys came.”
Selina smiles, “It was about time we met the kid. I have seven years of spoiling to catch up on.”
You smile as the sound of footsteps pounds up the stairs of the porch. Gideon comes barreling in a moment later. He’s covered in dirt, and there’s a gap in his smile from losing his first tooth recently. Before he can head into the den and collapse on your couch you yell, “Don’t you sit on my couch covered in dirt. Shower first.”
There’s a groan, before you hear him trudge up the stairs. Turning back to look at your sister you find her smirking at you. “What?”
She leans back in her chair, “Nothing … June Cleaver.”
You scowl, “Not cool.”
Her smirk just widens. “You’re in a dress.”
“It’s a sun dress. It’s too hot out for pants.”
“You’re in an apron.”
“You have a cake in the oven.”
You throw your hands in the air, “It’s my kid’s birthday!”
The two of you end up bickering until it’s time for cake. It’s a simple yellow cake with chocolate frosting. And as your family surrounds you; Damian’s father, brothers and butler, and your sister, you can’t help but think that things will never be completely normal. And as Damian’s arm wraps around your shoulders, and your six-year-old turns into a seven-year-old by blowing out some candles; you can’t help but feel like that’s okay.
As Bruce cuts the cake Dick asks, “So nephew, what did you wish for?”
More than a little interested you turn to Gideon. He’s never been one to share his wishes. But looking at his uncle he says, “The same thing I wish for every year, a little brother.”
You choke on your water, as all eyes turn to you. And one look at Damian’s smirking face makes you want to punch him. But before you can say anything Damian simply says, “Done.”
This really has been a labour of love because I have tried to post it twice only to have my laptop crash and have to start again!!!
As I have been off work for the past few weeks I have
had the pleasure of reading a butt load of fic (I believe that is the technical
term). I have also had some AMAZING
recommendations sent over to me and please do keep them coming, feel free to
tag me or send a link or send it to me by telepathy (although maybe not the
last one because my telepathy skills are a little off atm). It was quite tricky to narrow down this
months list but here are some of my favourite things that I have been reading
in February 2017.
P.S. If you make your way through all this and still
want something to read then check out @lucifersagents who has been writing the
most amazing drabbles and I love each and every one of them!
A huge thank you for all the
SPN recs I’ve got this month! I have found some amazing writers who I hadn’t
come across before so please keep them coming or there is a good chance this
list will just be Gabe filth.
Pull them Harder – @wayward-mirage gifts us all with this amazing
Gabriel filth. As a Gabe girl I have to
say this fic gave me several ideas which I will probably never actually get
round to writing.
Bringing Tidings Of
Joy – @bkwrm523 has
written this fantastic little series and I urge all Gabe girls to pay special
attention to part 2 before going having a cold shower.
While You Were Gone – @luci-in-trenchcoats has killed
me this this fic. I haven’t got the
words to describe how amazingly sweet and adorable this is a fantastic insight
into Dean that warmed my heart.
You - @eyes-of-a-disney-princess is a
writer who has recently come to my attention and from what I have read so far I
expect great things. This bit of Dean
smut is fantastic and please feel free to make your way through her masterlist!
Off Limits – @dancingalone21 I cannot begin to
tell you how much I adore this fic, it is super cute and the relationship
between Sam and Dean is brilliant.
Research – @nichelle-my-belle Here is another
writer I have only just found but after making my way through her masterlist is
definitely on my favourites list! This Sam smut is amazing and you should go
follow her and read all the stuff!
So as you can see this list
is quite Steve/Bucky heavy so if you come across ANY other marvel fics that you
think I should read PLEASE let me know.
I love Steve and Buck but I’m a sucker for the underappreciated
Try Again – @promarvelfangirl A fine example of the breaking up
and getting back together genre beautifully written and I may have had a stupid
grin on my face quite a bit when reading this one.
Dirty Minded Cap – Steve - @fvckingsteverogers As a Steve/Chris girl I
have no idea how I have not found this blog sooner but here is another
masterlist I will be pouring over. This
Steve smut made me all tingly in my lady parts and I think I’ve found another
Homesick – @thorne93 I have been reading this series from the
very first part and as always my girl here has schooled me in the art of
writing. The fabulousness of series like
this is why I don’t really write series because the bar is set really high x
What This Was – @amarvelouswritings THIS SERIES IS AWESOME AND I CAN’T WAIT FOR
MORE AND I WANT TO BE ON HER FOREVER TAG LIST BECAUSE EVERYTHING I HAVE READ OF
HERS IS AMAZING! Sorry, fangirling a
little there but in all seriousness, you should go follow her.
Screwed - @just-call-me-mrs-captain It is entirely possible
that I binge read this entire series and squealed several times. Bucky is so brilliantly written here, go read
Hallelujah – @bovaria brings you a bit of Bucky angst for you
all. You may want to get a box of
tissues handy before you start this one, you have been warned.
I think she likes you – @emilyevanston I am feeling the whole coffeeshop AU
thing right now and as someone who adores nerdy Nat this fic is super
sweet. The interactions between Bucky
and Clint are brilliant and I pretty much had a grin on my face all the way
through reading this one.
More Than You Know and The One by @imamotherfuckingstar-lord are
two amazing bits of the lovely Captain. A beautiful little fic and an wonderful
series that are well worth a read but then again she is one of my favourite
writers and I would put everything she writes on this list if I thought I could
get away with it.
Fandoms and Fics:
Love and Spiders
– @little-red-83. So I fully admit I’m a
Fili girl and this adorable little fic crossed my path a while back and I
thought it was super cute and super sweet and as someone who is terrified of
spiders this would be something I would do.
Plus @little-red-83 is my tumblr twin so go check out her work.
Treat You Better - @dont-hate-relate-pls has written this
beautiful almost heartbreaking little fic about the lovely Rob Benedict and she
writes him so well I can hear his voice in my head as I read it.
Let Me Show You
– @wayward-mirage is a writing genius who I adore and her Mark Pelligrino fics
like this one are absolutely sublime. Go
follow her and show her a little love.
LET’S GET IN THERE WITH SOME ULIRO AND SOME ULAZ AND PIDGE BONDING
“It’s okay, it’s okay, it’s almost done, Shiro–”
Shiro screams, his eyes bulging, biting down harder on the rag stuffed in his mouth. He’s curled in Ulaz’s lap, his arm laid out so Pidge could look at it. He spasms again, and Ulaz tightens his grip, murmuring something into Shiro’s ear that only he can hear.
