i was having a very bad day

Alright, we’ve gotten confirmation from Nora and have reached some kind of consensus that Andrew probably suffers from bipolar disorder (type 2) on top of his very apparent PTSD. But I haven’t seen much talk about him having hypomanic episodes after getting off his medication because that is a special kind of awful.

  • Bad days aren’t just because of cycles of depression, there are also the hypomanic episodes and mixed states.
  • It’s staying up until 4am watching infomercials and going to practice at 8am for almost a week straight. While your body is exhausted but your mind is still buzzing. You slept maybe two hours but it’s fine.
  • It’s staring at your hectic schedule and your coffee machine wondering if a few days of messing with your routine is a bad idea (it is) and if could trigger an episode (who knows).
  • It’s going to test drive a new car you haven’t budgeted for and didn’t even realize you wanted until like yesterday but now it’s all you can think about.
  • It’s finishing your Christmas shopping by September 1st. Applying for a credit card you don’t really need and getting lavish gifts for people you normally would just send a card.
  • It’s the nervous buzzing energy that you need to be moving, to be doing something.
  • It’s impulsively starting a diet one day or signing up for a race even though you hate excercising. But it’s been in the recesses of your mind for a while so why not go all out and get a new wardrobe and hire a personal trainer today.
  • It’s eating everything because why not or not eating at all because you can suddenly sustain yourself on air alone and there are too many things to do.
  • It’s being so actively self destructive that you start fights with people over small annoyances. Not little fights. Huge fights.
  • It’s too much energy. Your shaky and tired but you might as well have chugged a bunch of energy drinks because your still going.
  • It’s feeling so out of control of your body. It’s knowing that it’s not full mania because you’ve managed to stop yourself from more than one bad impulsive idea. And you might needs sleep but you’re not too sure.
  • It’s the false productivity that your depressions usually keeps at bay springing to life.
  • It’s watching yourself get overwhelmed with responsibilities but everything is so far away.
  • It’s intrusive thought and intrusive thoughts and impulsive decisions.
  • It’s that feeling of “is it worse to feel this out of control or to feel empty and hopeless”.
  • It’s feeling both at once and realizing that’s actually hell.
  • It’s having a routine. Setting a bedtime. Knowing you probably shouldn’t drink alcohol. And worrying every now and then that it won’t matter how careful you are, sometimes you can’t control things.

Guys, I am so scared.

I cannot bare the thought of losing the one thing in life that has made me so happy in the past. I use tumblr, YouTube, Pinterest, and a crap ton of other internet stuff to help me calm down from anxiety or cheer me up after having a bad day. To all my followers, please spread the word about this. As I write this, tears are streaming down my face because of fear of losing everything I had every worked for. My family is very poor and can hardly pay for our regular bills. So I highly doubt we’ll be able to pay more bills just to access the sights we love. If you love the internet and want to keep it safe, spread the word about net neutrality, and maybe, just maybe, we’ll be able to save it.

I’ve been busy with school + having depression lmao + I’m going out of town this week, so I’ve been super lazy with this blog. And yeah I don’t really feel the need to explain myself, but I just want y'all to know that I’m doing alright, and I’ll get to all the asks at some point in my lifetime. I’m not purposefully ignoring anyone, but sorry I’m shit at responding :/

incase your having a bad day:

the other day in maths class my teacher was teaching us about adding up taxes and credit card info and how its all really important that we know and learn about it. but then he said, and i quote - “listen to me oR GO SUCK AN EGG!” and it was really weird because he is usually a very quiet talker and i don’t think i’ve ever been more shocked in my life

slow day at work led to me doodling on some Starbucks receipts! Most of them came out not very good (this pen wasn’t mine so I had really bad control) but! it so happened that the one I did some dumb lil buzzfeed unsolved doodles on came out ok.

bonus: “I Survived What Might Have Been A Demon Encounter That’s Entirely My Idiot Friend’s Fault” badge, sketched out of pure spite bc #truestory yesterday my idiot friend and I went out, and he screwed around with some shit he rly shouldn’t have, and we might have heard actual concrete evidence of…..um……yeah. And the worst part is, he dragged me into HIS shit and YET he said he slept like a log last night, whereas I had nightmares and gave up trying to sleep barely 3 hours into the night :)))))) I’m low-key actually fuming but thank goodness @someweirdnerdwithglasses is an excellent counsellor with regards to some rly spooky shit!!!

Today was a very emotional day at work. Another life or dead situation. I always feel bad when I have to leave when my shift ends. What happends when Im gone? Will she be alone? Are they taking good care ( i know they do )of her and did I enough for her today? So many questions, I know I did my best for her and she told me that she was so happy about the loving care she got .. I can’t wait to go back to work tomorrow and see if she is still there. Its a hard and beautiful thing to take care of someone who is in his last period of life. I can’t describe how loving it is to just sit there with someone and be there for that person. I just needed to get this of my chest. Sorry for the spam. 💗

The Great, Big Thanksgiving Captain Swan Prompt-A-Thon

Originally posted by kevinhayes

Hello, hey there, hi internet. If you’ve been following along of the last couple of days you’ve probably heard tell that I have had a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad…week. It’s not been great. It has been the opposite of great. 

I am, however, nothing if not stubborn and very determined to do something productive while trying not to cry in public places and in between my games in the next couple of days, I’ve got some time. Which leaves you guys where?

SENDING ME FIC PROMPTS. 

It looks real aggressive all bolded like that. I’m not going to change it. Send me things, internet. Good things. Prompt-type things where I can write Emma and Killian making out. I’ll leave it pretty open-ended, so if there’s a trope you’re interested in or an extension of something I’ve already written or whatever send it my way. Here’s hoping I can control my word count and adjective use. Let’s say, like, 5K’ish per prompt. I reserve the slightly obnoxious right to not write something if I’m really not feeling it, but this is mostly a Thanksgiving project in a cliche kind of way and I want to write stuff you guys really, really want to read. 

My ask box is open, my messages are open, you can send as you or as anon (although anon will make it harder to tag you when the prompt goes up) and I’ll post on Sunday on Ao3 and here on Tumblr.

VERY good.

i’m assuming this is because Doug Eiffel Her Best Friend is having a bad day, and she knows pop culture cheers him up. he’s the first one to find her working on it, which is convenient, because minkowski immediately opens her mouth to say “i’m pretty sure it was leia han was crushing on, not luke” but eiffel gets a hand over her mouth in time. (well, sort of. he was already crying by then so he kinda missed and shoved his fingers up her nose. but she stopped talking, so.)

Hey Adele, I read your tags and I'm sorry you're having a Bad Day, but I just want to remind you that you're so incredibly wonderful and recovery is so so hard (I'm currently trying to recover too and feel like giving up half the time but) there's light at the end of the tunnel and you are so so so so strong and capable of getting there!! Please be kind to yourself and remember to take it one day at a time; tomorrow is a new day and you can write this one off and try again!! I believe in you ♡

Dear Anon, thank you very dearly for this heartwarming message. It really made me smile, especially as I was so low and then so embarrassed that I’d posted to the wrong blog! I hope you can all forgive me for that, I don’t mean to be so serious on this blog. But the positivity and the kindness you all offered in the wake of it, I was so moved and it really made me feel the world better. 

Thank you for thinking me strong, that means so much. Especially when I’m feeling like I can barely keep it together. But having such kind and generous people in my life is really helping and I can’t even begin to explain how lucky I am to have followers like you, reaching out and offering such sweet sentiments. I’m just so grateful and I love you all so very dearly.

Thank you xoxox

Terrible girlfriends

Aries: They’ll try to change you. Maybe you won’t even notice it, but in relationship, they just want things to be their way, so if you know about a bad habit of yours, or just about anything you know she hates, prepare for her trying to change it.

Taurus: Kinda jealous, but you most likely won’t know. Oh yeah… except they’ll just randomly ignore you, give you evil looks and suddenly become affectionate in front of your female friends. But they’ll never actually tell you what’s bothering them…

Gemini: They literally can’t decide what do they want. At first, you were just someone they were dating for fun, but suddenly they’re planning a wedding with you. Once you start participate? You’re too commited for them.

Cancer: Super overprotective to the point where it’s uncomfortable. They’re like a mother but 100 times worse. They’ll always ask you million questions about everything and will want to go everywhere with you and do everything with you.

Leo: Needs constant excitement or they’ll get bored super quickly. I mean yes, relationships are about excitement, you go places together and all that, but with Leo girl, you literally have to be doing something all the time and give her your attention 24/7. They have zero chill.

Virgo: They soemtimes act as if you guys were only friends. I think this might be because they’re not the best at showing affection, so sometimes they just joke around and don’t actually do anything related to dating such as holding hands, kissing, etc… I’m not saying it’s exactly a bad thing, it’s more about how it makes you feel…

Libra: The insecure and whiny ones. And listen, they’re not normally insecure. But in front of you? Lord helps you. they’ll always ask you if you think they’re fat, want you to remind them that they’re loved every single day and if they have a bad day, they’ll give you a VERY detailed speech about it. Lowkey jealous as well.

Scorpio: They don’t know their boundaries. They’ll ask you about your day and expect you to tell them with full detail. Whenever you go on a trip, they want to know exactly where you go. Also probably know about every single one of your female friends. And they already hate them.

Sagittarius: Once they’re in the relationship with you, they think it’s okay for them to do literally anything. Going through your phone, suddenly ignoring you for a month, flirting with other people… I mean it’s not a big deal, after all you’re a couple, right ?

Capricorn: That girlfriend that will yell at you in front of your friends because you smiled at another girl. They look like calm and loving girlfriends, but there’s this evil side of them that awakes once you date for more than a week. They just want you just for themselves. On the other hand, they can actually get pretty flirty with other guys, though you wouldn’t really guessed it…

Aquarius: They’re not really good at showing love. Like, they’re loving and actually secretly enjoy romantic sutff, but they don’t really get affectionate or anything. This is not anything horrible, but it might make you feel as if they didn’t even care. Also tend to be flirty with other people a lot while they’re in a relationship…

Pisces: The overthinker. Oh boy. They will look at every single one of your moves and overthink it to the point when they’re just sobbing and already thinking about you breaking up with them. Might make a big deal out of a lot of things. Lowkey jealous, but not hysterical.

I want you to want me

“Wait, no, let’s take the other corridor.”

“But that will take so much longer!”

“I don’t care. Come on!”

Draco ignored Pansy’s pouting and dragged her along. What were the teachers thinking, hanging up all these mistletoes around the castle? There were so many, it was so hard to avoid them all. Also, it was only November 17th! Couldn’t they at least have waited until December?

Cursing under his breath, Draco turned to the corridor that was still mistletoe-free. Well, at least it had been this morning.

“Oh, come on,” Draco groaned as he suddenly found himself and Pansy standing beneath a gigantic ladder. Filch was on top of it, fumbling with the fateful plant Draco had come to loathe.

Since he was a child, he had been very superstitious. Ignoring the mistletoe wouldn’t do it. It was bad luck. And Pansy knew this very well, judging from her smug expression. She had been taught the same by her parents, but, unlike Draco, she chose to try her luck. At least she usually did.

“Well, go on,” she said, grinning at him. Exhaling loudly, Draco pinched the bridge of his nose.

“This is ridiculous,” he grumbled.

“I’m waiting.” Pansy’s grin only widened when Draco huffed and blew his hair out of his face.

“Alright, alright.” He leaned over to her reluctantly, but panicked, when she suddenly closed her eyes. She couldn’t be serious! Dear Merlin! Hastily, he planted his lips on her left cheek and immediately started walking again. There! Surely that would count!

“Hey! Draco,” he heard Pansy call after him. Nope, he would keep walking! He would keep walking and avoid these bloody mistletoes this time! Getting back to the Slytherin common room couldn’t be that impossible!

“… no, I remember you specifically told me- Ouch!”

“Hey, watch where you’re going!” Rubbing his nose, Draco glowered at the person he had just collided with. The Weasel. With Granger in tow. Magnificent!

You bumped into me,” Weasley said in an accusing tone.

“Whatever, Weasel! Now get out of my-”

“Oh, mistletoe,” Granger interrupted him, pointing at the ceiling.

You’ve got to be kidding me!

Draco looked up, then back at the other two standing in front of him. Oh, damn it!

“Come on, let’s just go,” Granger said, taking Weasley’s hand.

“We can’t,” he whispered. “We have to kiss.” Granger rolled her eyes at him, but Weasley’s face turned serious. “No, we really have to kiss. It’s bad luck if we don’t.”

Huh. Weasley wasn’t as dumb as he looked after all. With an exasperated sigh, Granger pulled him down and kissed him for much longer than was necessary. When Draco cleared his throat, they finally stopped.

“What, you want one, too?” Weasley asked, arching his eyebrows.

“Well, I was standing under the damn thing, too, wasn’t I?”

Understanding hit Weasley’s face and Draco would have loved to take a step forward and slap him. His dumb face was just so infuriating. Before Draco could do anything, however, Granger shoved her boyfriend and he stumbled forward.

“Hey, what are you doing?” Weasley asked, turning his head.

“Well, obviously, you two are the ones with the superstitions. And I already kissed you, so you can go and kiss him.” The way she said it was so nonchalant, it made Draco gape at ther. Okay, so he definitely didn’t want to kiss her. But did she understand how revolting it would be to kiss the Weasel? Well, of course not. She did it willingly. On a regular basis. Yuck!

When Weasley turned back around to Draco, his face was so pale, Draco thought he might faint.

“Ugh, let’s just get this over with,” Draco murmured.

“No, please, Hermione, no, please don’t make me do this!”

“I’m not making you do anything! You were the one who said you have to kiss under the mistletoe.”

“She’s right,” Draco said through gritted teeth. He closed the gap between them and wrinkled his nose. “Just… hold still.” Draco placed both his hands on Weasley’s shoulders and tried to ignore the way his bottom lip was quivering. His lips looked very chapped.This was going to be worse than he had thought!

If he hadn’t already cheated when he had kissed Pansy on the cheek, Draco would have done the same with Weasley. But he couldn’t cheat fate twice in one day! Ugh!

Just a quick peck. Light. Very light. Lips barely touching. Yeah, that wouldn’t be so bad, right? Ugh, if only it weren’t Weasley!

“Merlin, Malfoy, just do it already,” Weasley groaned. Clicking his tongue once, Draco stood up on his toes and gave Weasley the quickest kiss in history of all kisses.

“Ugh! Now excuse me, I need to go wash my mouth,” Draco declared and started hurrying off.

“Ron. Ron? Are you okay? Are you crying? Oh, you’re gagging. Come on, stop it!” Granger’s voice slowly died down behind him as Draco ran down the stairs to the Dungeons. No, wait, he couldn’t walk down that corridor. There were at least three bunches of mistletoe down there. The one on the left had only one. That he knew of. And he’d have to walk through half the castle again. But one was still better than three. Okay then.

As he walked, Draco kept his eyes to the ceiling. He wouldn’t let himself get into another situation like that. Yuck! Weasley! Disgusting! He’d probably never forget it. November 17th, the day he had kissed Ron Weasley. Why? Why??

He wiped his lips with the back of his hand and began running when he spied the bunch of mistletoe he had been dreading. Luckily, no one else was in the corridor. Heaving a sigh of relief, Draco slowed down when he suddenly heard footsteps approaching.

“Potter!” Draco narrowed his eyes. “Wandering the corridors all alone?”

Why couldn’t it have been Potter? Why couldn’t he have bumped into him under the mistletoe? This really wasn’t fair! Draco was doing everything, but still he had the worst luck! This was just infuriating! And honestly, it was kind of Potter’s fault he’d had to endure kissing Weasley. If Potter had been with his stupid friends, it might have gone very differently.

“Why aren’t you with the rest of your little trio? Tired of being the third wheel?”

Potter blinked.

“I am, actually.”

“Oh.”

This was no fun when Potter was being honest.

“What about you? You look a bit ill. Are you okay?”

Draco tried very hard not to think about his lips touching Weasley’s. This would probably haunt him for a very long time. Instead, he rolled his eyes.

“How sweet. Nice to know the Saviour cares.”

Potter was about to respond, when his gaze fell to the ground.

“What’s that?”

Draco followed Potter’s gaze and almost choked. Was that mistletoe? Growing, actually growing out of the cobblestone while they were standing there? But mistletoe usually grew on trees!

“You can’t be serious,” Draco muttered. This was insane. But… he was with Potter. This would be the perfect opportunity to steal a kiss without having to reveal his feelings for the stupid git. “Ugh, can this day get any worse?” Draco moaned. Yes, yes, act like this is the worst thing that could have happened right now! He watched as Potter slowly examined the plant.

“Is that…”

“Yeah,” Draco said, trying to sound as displeased as possible.

“Oh.”

There was a brief silence, in which they both avoided the other’s eyes.

“Well, since we’re not exactly standing under it… Let’s just ignore it,” Potter babbled. Draco’s heart fell. This was his opportunity! Why was Potter being so difficult?

“We can’t just ignore it. It’s bad luck,” he mumbled. He felt so stupid. Potter was probably seeing right through him. From the corner of his eyes he saw the Gryffindor shuffling his feet, while his eyes were still glued to the ground.

“That’s just some stupid superstition, isn’t it?” Potter said with an arched brow.

“It’s not,” Draco insisted. “People… people have died after ignoring it.” It was utter bollocks. And Potter probably knew it. Draco considered just walking away. Potter was right, they weren’t standing under the mistletoe, so the rules probably didn’t apply here.

“Oh.” Potter paused while Draco suppressed the urge to kick the mistletoe.  “Well, if it’s that serious… we better not risk it.”

Draco’s head snapped up. What? Had Potter just… What?

Loki’s Future

some random thoughts/meta after watching Ragnarok (a good ass film™️)

- After watching Ragnarok, I was struck by how similar in appearance Loki is to Hela. Same slim face and build, same pale skin, and even the same black hair. They both prefer blades to fight with and magic to communicate with. Hell, their wardrobe color schemes even match. This raised some questions for me when I was watching the film; why this deliberate choice, and how much does Loki’s appearance have an effect on how Odin treats him, in this film and others? Thor is Hela’s sister, yet we’ve seen that Odin treats Thor very, very differently to Hela and later Loki. Does Loki with his black hair and magic just remind Odin too much of his own shitty decisions? It would explain a lot about why he acts like such a dick to Loki, even when Loki was a child and not killing anyone (as far as we know haha, that kid coulda done anything)

- But there’s gotta be more to it than that. The similarities in appearance may well be Taika’s nod to the original Norse myths, but it occurred to me that it’s way too obvious a similarity, and could be pointing to something a little more complex. In the original myths, Hela is actually Loki’s daughter. Coincidence? I think not! Add this to the fact that in the mythology Loki also has a son, a gigantic wolf called Fenrir, who we also see in Ragnarok, I think there’s plenty of evidence pointing to the fact that Loki has some greater importance and connection to Asgard, running deeper than him simply being a Jotun war prize. For me it’s just too much of a coincidence that Hela and Loki are a) strongly connected in the source material b) have strongly similar appearances, fighting styles and love for chaos (to a certain extent, their characters are similar) and c) are both ‘children’ of Odin. On one of Loki’s bad days, you could call them twins. Why though? It’s been reeeeally bugging me, but I just can’t work out a direct connection, or reason as to why Hela’s character had to be built to resemble Loki.

- One answer to this is a theory I read that Loki is in fact Hela’s son. (Yeah, I know, that sounds deranged when you think about it.) The timelines align such that Hela could very easily have invaded Jotunheim with Odin before Loki’s birth. There she could have had, through some means or other, a child with Laufey, and then later abandoned it due to ‘weakness’. So… a hybrid. Loki even has black hair when he’s in his Jotun form, and that’s really fucking unusual - no other frost giant is even similar - he LOOKS like a hybrid of Hela and Laufey. Although there’s a few things off about this theory, and the MCU will probably never confirm or go into enough detail about it, AND it also makes Loki Thor’s nephew (!!!wtf!) AND Odin would have also have to have known about it the whole time (albeit explaining his behaviour), it does give reason and a cause to the weird connection and similarities between the two.

- Loki and the Tesseract. Ooooooooohhh my god. So we basically KNOW that he has it, as although we don’t see him take it in Ragnarok, it’s strongly implied, and he also is literally holding it in the leaked trailer for Infinity War. (I appreciate that some ppl don’t want to watch the leaked trailer, but it confirms he has it) Why is this important? The Tesseract is an Infinity Stone. It has power Loki knows how to use, and he’s one of the few that do. What’s Infinity War about? Infinity Stones, and Thanos. The same Thanos who’s on the hunt for Loki AND the Tesseract. I honestly don’t think Loki’s taken it for some world domination shit this time round, I think he’s taken it for power and leverage. He’s acting intelligently and planning far ahead. This is given extra gravity when you remember that Loki is the only one in the Infinity War lineup who has met and knows Thanos, and that honestly did not go well for Loki at all.

- (On a side note, I just want to talk about Loki and Thanos; it’s been theorised/discussed for ages that Thanos met Loki in the void after his fall from Asgard in Thor 1, and gave him a deal: the mission of capturing Earth, finding the Tesseract, and the tools to do so. Now, Loki’s not really one to make deals unless he can subvert them, and so the whole way through Avengers his motives for attack to me seemed uncharacteristically illogical, although I can understand his primal emotional reasons for wanting to rule. But we also saw him looking very, very ill at the beginning of that film and in the Thor 1 credits scene, and being in obvious pain - he looked like a damn meth addict. Some fans have also noted that his eyes look blue during some scenes in Avengers, like he’s being mind controlled. I completely agree with this theory: that Thanos, recognising Loki’s power, tortured him, (with heat and fire, because how else do you torture a Jotun? It explains his appearance and injuries) and mind controlled him to enact the events of Avengers. And everything that happens thereafter in the MCU makes soooo much more sense when you think about it from the torture perspective. It explains a lot about the ‘big picture’ behind all of Loki’s decisions since. He has angered the most powerful man in the universe twice: failing in giving Thanos the Tesseract, AND remaining alive.

- Which brings me back to my point - Loki is the only one who has any possible comprehension of what’s coming, so taking the Tesseract easily interprets as him acting impulsively for reasons of his own safety, and possibly the safety of those around him (he takes it after his ‘redemption’ arc). I think he still has some kind of connection or knowledge of Thanos’ presence, maybe from torture, and he can sense when shit is about to go down - and we see the beginning of it going down at the end of Ragnarok. He’s also keeping his possession of it a secret, and for obvious reasons. Knowing he’d just taken the same item that he screwed everything up for last time would completely ruin his new trust-bond ‘redemption’ arc with Thor (I kinda hate using the word redemption tho - it’s obvious from Dark World that that’s not what Loki wants or really cares about) so, he’s going to use it in some kind of bamboozle, dodgy deal, Loki-esque interaction in the future .

- I really really reeaallllyy hope they don’t just turn Loki ‘back’ into a villain in IW. It would be an insult his character and the character work Taika’s done in Ragnarok. At this point it’s weak, cheap and easy character development and a trope that’s extremely overplayed. However, HOWEVER. It would equally break my heart to see him fall completely into the other side - the role of martyrdom, righteousness and self-sacrifice in IW. We already have dozens of characters who do that, and what makes Loki more loved than all of them is that he can do both - when and how he acts is fascinating to watch. He’s every inch a chaotic neutral, and I hope so much that Marvel keeps it like that. He survives because he has no morals, likes to play both sides and he’s smart about it. It makes him compelling, godamnit.

- With Tom’s movie contract and the amount of times they’ve ‘killed’ him off already, it’s looking likely he’ll survive Infinity War. (Not looking so good for Thor though 😭IW is seriously gonna kill me too)

- Some more mythology stuff… Although in the MCU Loki’s plot usefulness is as more of a ‘bad guy’ and not he’s not a central enough character to justify such an in depth plotline, there are plenty more things the myths can give him. For example, his own honest relationships, outside of Asgard’s influence. Loki has most likely experienced a much wider range of people, creatures and places in the universe than average. He’s got lots of little secrets tucked away. For example, in mythology he has another son, called Jormungand, a giant serpent. Not likely J will ever make it to the screen though, sadly. I think that the serpent shapeshifting story in Ragnarok was perhaps a nod to that. So was Odin’s 6-legged horse Sleipnir, another of Loki’s sons.

Secondly, and of greater interest to me: in the myths, Loki has a wife called Sigyn, the goddess of intelligence. (I love her already…) with whom he has these strange animalistic (likely shapeshifting) children. Now, I know IW is really too late along his storyline to be introducing someone like Sigyn, let alone as a love interest, but god damn would it be awesome if they did. Maybe it’s just me, but I think it would be truly satisfying and also extremely entertaining to see Loki get himself a girl. Superhero movies are so often plagued by the oppressive American binary of good and evil, wherein the good guy always gets the girl, and the villain is always miserable. Seeing Loki, (a character who we know consciously does bad things and fits very well the evil stereotype, but does good things as well, and plays both sides entirely to his own benefit) get the typical stamp of a good guy would make for a more interesting, rule-breaking plot. Please, MCU, don’t let Loki fall into this binary! Let him be both! It’s what made him so extremely damn popular! that and the fact that he’s smart and funny and Tom is extremely fucking hot lol

- I also really wanna see a bit more of his magical abilities - in his villain role so far we’ve been shown he’s smarter than half the MCU, extremely skilled in in magic and combat with knives, he can teleport, he can create illusions, he can fuck with people’s heads and more. His Valkyrie knife standoff scene was interesting in Ragnarok - I’m 100% sure he deliberately lost to Valkyrie to gain access to her memories- but Thor mentioned something way more interesting: Loki is a shapeshifter. And a really good one; he’s basically in a constant shift from Jotun to Asgardian. But to animals? That’s really fucking cool, and the snake story shows how easily he can hide in plain sight. (Y’all can get the cat!Loki y’all have always wanted.) Idk I just really wanna see more of what he can do. I think further abilities/aspects of his fighting style and personality will be revealed in future though, because having the Tesseract and knowing Thanos makes him into a major plot point for IW.

- lastly can I just say I’m really digging the 80s/rock soundtrack aesthetic Marvel is pushing for

- and the c i n e m a t o g r a p h y!! Got damn.

- just protect him please for the love of all that is holy.

- That is all. Thanks for reading my ramblings. Xxxx.

Coming Home by sheafrotherdon | 9.9K

When Stiles comes home from college for Thanksgiving break, the last thing he expects to develop is a sudden, overwhelming attraction to Derek Hale.

Cupboard Love by mklutz | 32.6K

He’s carefully balancing the sandwiches and the two biggest tupperware containers he could find that both had functioning lids when the front door opens and he almost drops everything right there in front of the stupid fountain.

If that’s Derek Hale, he’s definitely not a mountain man.

“See, your angel of a sister - ” Derek scoffs. Cora hasn’t been an angel since she was five months old. “ - agreed to date me, because my visa is about to expire and - ”

“I’d have to marry you for that, dumbass,” Cora butts in, rolling her eyes.

“Are you saying you wouldn’t marry me to keep me in the country?” Stiles asks, sounding mildly offended.

“Hell no,” Cora snorts, earning her a wounded look from Stiles.

i wait for you like a lonely house by  bleep0bleep | 4.5K

Derek isn’t sure why he buys the house.
He doesn’t need the space, that much is certain. While it’s not as big as the one Derek grew up in, something about the cheerful yellow paint and the wide staircase (with banisters wide enough for children to slide down) draws him in.

“If you’d like to have me as your strictly platonic date for Thanksgiving, but have me pretend to be in a very long or serious relationship with you, to torment your family, I’m game,” the ad had said. “I can do these things, at your request: openly hit on other guests while you act like you don’t notice, start instigative discussions about politics and/or religion, propose to you in front of everyone, pretend to be really drunk as the evening goes on (sorry, I don’t drink, but I used to. a lot. too much in fact. I know the drill), start an actual, physical fight with a family member, either inside or on the front lawn for all the neighbors to see. I require no pay but the free meal I will receive as a guest.”

“Cover me,” she said, tilting the turkey so the butt end was more accessible. “I’m going back in.”

As if.

Suspect spells from the Internet, or: How Stiles Found His Soul Mate by seraphina_snape | 24K

“Yo,” Scott said, eyes wide. “Was that Derek in your room?”

Stiles groaned and smacked his forehead, mostly because Scott was too far away to smack and he didn’t really need a broken hand from punching the wall on top of everything.

“Wait,” Scott said, his face impossibly close to the webcam. “Is Derek your soul mate?!

They stare at each other, half-grinning, and Derek knows it’s definitely the absolute wrong time for this, but he wants. He wants to grin at Stiles over dinner every day for the rest of his life, baffled over yams and Moon Pie Day, and, god, crap, goddamn, when the fuck did he have time to fall in love?

Derek chuckled. “Yeah, it is. How do you know where I am?”

“I don’t, that’s why it’s weird it’s night. That puts you in… Europe?” Stiles asked after some quick math.

Derek raised an eyebrow. “Spain. You haven’t lost that…” Derek waved his hand. “Stileness.”

Things I realized working on my Nano today:

1. Write the scene you don’t want to write.

I know you don’t want to write the boring bridging scene and you think 1300 words is a pretty good word count for the first day and you don’t even have any ideas for that scene because you had ideas for the scene before and you have ideas for the scene after.
Screw that, write it anyway. Yes, it might be bad, yes you’re really not inspired and it feels very bland right now. Write it. WRITE IT. Get to 1700 words with a boring filler scene that is needed for context.
Because honestly, if you’re not into writing that boring scene now, you’re not gonna be happy to have to write it on day 25 with 8K words to catch up.
Nano isn’t about writing your best novel, you cannot always write your best, Nano is about writing the whole damn thing. Then you’ll edit and rewrite until you make it good, make it best.

2. Pay attention when you read.

I’m not saying read everyday, nobody got the energy for that, but when you do read, pay attention to the words. If the way someone blended dialogue and descriptions together flows well, write it down for later. There is only so many times you can use “As for”, “But her eyes”, “When she”. At some point you get really tired of the way you write things, it doesn’t feel like a style anymore but just the same bits of sentences, simply reorganized with different words.
So pay attention to others’ words. Being able to use a phrasing you liked in your own writing will suddenly make you feel a whole lot more talented than you felt ten seconds before. Ride the highs when you can.

3. If you’re inspired to write more, write more.

Don’t settle for the 1667 words, if you’ve got a snippet of scene teasing at you, write it, a writer’s brain is a fickle thing and we don’t want you to forget why it had to happen this way, or this amazing dialogue you made up. If you write 2K today, that’s 200words you won’t have to force out on a bad day. Do it for future you.

anonymous asked:

Stenbrough, Georgie has a little cute crush on Stan

Oh my GOD I saw this and aaaaaa I couldn’t wait to write these!! I hope you like it because I love you for this request

- okay so this is when they’re 17 and Georgie is around 11 (I think)

- Georgie’s inspiration is Richie so he becomes sassy™

- When Bill first brings Stan home to sleep over after a date Georgie is so awestruck

- Like, wowie look at this boy his brother is holding hands with

- He’s pretty shy around Stan at first, he definitely gets all blushy and forgets how to human if Stan talks to him

- ‘Hey Georgie, how was school today?’ ‘Uuuuuuuuuu yes?’

- He likes to do stuff for Stan and purposely not for Bill

- One time, they made cookies at school so Georgie gave one to Stan and just left Bill out

- Stan gave him half anyway

- He asked Stan if he’ll go to his school dance with him (they had to take someone older to take care of them) and of course Stan agreed

- When he finds out that Stan and his brother are indeed dating he gets really upset

- because how dare Bill, his own brother, Stan is HIS boyfriend

- When Georgie gets used to Stan being around the house he tries to tell Stan that Bill isn’t good enough for him and that he’s wayyy better

- When Stan and Bill walk through the door, he’ll take Stans hand and drag him away

- He’ll tell Stan all of Bill’s flaws in efforts to make Stan change his mind but Stan secretly thinks all of Bill’s ‘flaws’ are adorable

- Georgie also thinks that the most innocent things that’s Bill does that he doesn’t agree with are the worst things ever

- 'Did you know that Bill sleeps with socks on, like WHO does that?!’

- 'Who even drinks orange juice after brushing their teeth?! He’s not boyfriend material at all Stanley’

- He’ll also compliment Stan a lot, mainly about his hair but sometimes about his fashion or personality

- Georgie isn’t too good at flirting yet but Stan appreciates his efforts

- 'Your hair is…very curly, yes’

- Bill is actually smooth™ and Georgie is kinda m a d about that

- Georgie has also accepted their PDA but that doesn’t stop him from trying to take his brother’s boyfriend

- Like Stan and Bill could be watching a horror movie, cuddling on the sofa and Georgie will bring Stan some candy and run away

- 'G-g-Georgie stop t-trying to take my b-b-boyfriend away from m-me’

- 'Sorry Billy but you said Stanley deserves the best and he’s with the wrong Denbrough right now’

- Stan likes to snuggle his face into Bill’s neck when they cuddle and talk

- one day they are discussing Georgie 'little’ crush on Stan

- Stan just laughs into Bills neck and says 'I never thought I’d be in the position where my boyfriends little brother wants to date me’

- 'It’s y-y-your fault for b-b-being so p-p-pretty’

- Bill knows he shouldn’t be but he’s super protective over Stan and that doesn’t change with even his own brother

- he loves Georgie, he really does, but he needs to back the fuck up from his man

- he takes tips from Richie (who would have thought) and leaves marks on Stan neck

- 'Fuck sake Bill, you know my dad is going to be so pissed’

- 'Well e-everyone knows you’re mine n-n-now’

- Georgie is very concerned when he sees the marks, even more so when he finds out Bill put them here

- 'Why are you hurting Stanley? See, I told you he’s a bad boyfriend’

- 'It means he’s mine forever now’

- now Georgie thinks that hickies are basically marriage

- He sees Eddie’s one day

- 'Are you married like Stan, Eddie?’

- 'Who the fuck did you marry because it sure as hell wasn’t me’

- 'Richie calm down, I’m not fucking married’

- Stan is always super sweet to Georgie, he thinks his little crush is adorable and he loves the way Bill is protective over him even when he doesn’t need to be

- 'I’m s-starting to think I’m n-n-not your f-favourite Denbrough , babe’

- 'Ah yes, because I would totally leave you for your ten year old brother, shut up billiam’

- Stan loves both brothers but he loves Bill more, don’t tell Georgie though
