i was helping my friend move

Begin Again

Based on this request x

Summary: You, an undergrad engineering student move into the Avengers compound by your close friend, Tony Stark’s request. This is a story of a tech-savvy, sardonic mechanical engineer helping the man out of time, Bucky Barnes, get back on his feet and into his own head and maybe just having difficulty with problems that she can’t use wrenches or screwdrivers to fix. 

Pairings: Bucky x Reader; platonic!Tony x Reader

A/N: this is my first series and I guess the first chapter’s always going to be a little slow because it’s all about exposition, right? I hope you guys like this, I’m pretty excited for this series. This story also mentions the events mapped in Civil War so be prepped for spoilers.

Your heart pounded nervously as you entered the compound, a duffel bag on your shoulder and a pass key in hand. You walked past the reception desk and slotted the card in place to access the elevator, taking you from the silent lobby up past the masses of floors teeming with people. Men and women in lab coats or tactical gear swarmed the building carrying files or prototypes or armour. 

Stark was surrounded by people constantly. It was good for him.

You, though, were incredibly nervous seeing so many people. But it was easy being around Tony having known him for a few years, so your mind eased every time you focused on that. 

When you reached the right floor, you adjusted your bag and held onto the strap, looking around for your best friend without trying to look too lost or suspicious. You wondered how “Earth’s mightiest heroes” responded to a stranger looking like a lost deer wondering around their living quarters.

I Bribed a Teacher to Help My Friend The Other Day

(Firstly I don’t go to public school I go to a small private Christian School in the middle of nowhere but anyways moving on to my incredible story:)

I was sitting with my friend at lunch and he was on his phone, but at my school there’s a rule against using the internet from your phone for whatever reason. Anyways, he was on Twitter or something and making fun of people with this other kid who was sitting next to him. The other kid started laughing hysterically so the teacher on lunch duty came over to see what was going on. She asked if he was using his data and was gonna take his phone since he was, so I put a Lindor Truffle down on top of his lunch box, so the teacher picked it up and said, “I suppose I can overlook it this once. Don’t let me catch you on your phone again”. He was really happy and I’m just glad that I helped a good friend out. I am still very proud of myself <3

Hi Seanan! Just found your Patreon because my Tumblr presence tends to be sporadic, so I didn't see your earlier posts about it. But, since you're now up in Seattle, I thought I'd recommend a local band since I feel like they're right up your alley! They are the Nathaniel Johnstone Band, and they play very cool music that has been described as "funky-fusion-swirly-world rock" and features a banjo and a belly dancer. They're friends of mind and play GREAT shows. Enjoy!

That’s cool!  I don’t push my Patreon much, because well, I’m still not great at some of the rewards (how do videos even work for fuck’s sake), and I hit the level I needed to hit in order to achieve the project’s stated goal (helping me with my moving costs and the associated burden of re-housing myself), at which point banging the drum seemed a little grubby.  If people amble in, that’s awesome and I am so, so grateful, but I’m not going fishing.

Thanks for the tip!

i've liked girls for as long as i can remember- but i was scared of what might happen if i came out so i concealed my feelings for many years. last year, i told my best friend about my sexuality because i trusted her and felt the need to vent. she outted me to the entire school. i moved away and now i'm in a completely new state. i have a fresh start. do you have tips on accepting your sexuality + being open about your sexuality after you've been treated harshly?

I’m so sorry for what happened, I’m glad you’re able to have a fresh start though and I hope you’ll make wonderful friends who will respect and support you!

I’m not really out to anybody so I don’t know if I can help… But to accept my sexuality I tell myself that it’s about me and that it’s nobody else’s business, if people can’t accept it then that’s not my problem because I won’t change for them. 

Actually I’m still trying to accept it, and I’m able to be open about it on tumblr because people on here have been very supportive every time I talked about it. I’m sorry, I don’t know how to be open about it irl, but I think that accepting your sexuality can help you feel more confident? So just remember that it’s about you, people don’t get to decide for you, they don’t get to say if it’s bad or wrong; your sexuality is valid, it’s part of you, it makes you who you are and you’re a wonderful person!

“My father wants me to come home to Botswana. He tells me that he’s getting older and he needs me to come home. I miss my family, but I want to stay here. Life is different for me here. I’ve met so many people from so many cultures. I’ve done half marathons. I even did a triathlon. It’s different back in Botswana. I was completely dependent on my father. Women don’t leave home until they get married. So I’d like to stay here. But my sister is the only family that I have in America. And last week she told me that she’s moving back to Botswana. So now I’ll be on my own. And I’m worried. Because I don’t like to ask for help. But I never had a problem asking her for help. And now I won’t have that anymore. But a few months ago I joined something at my church called a ‘connect group.’ And now I have so many friends. They are like my sisters. We have brunches, and dinners, and go hiking. I feel very loved by them. So I’m hoping they will be like my family.”

Mystery Shack made of polymer clay, acrylic paint, hot glue, cardboard, and prayers.
Just before I leave for college, I have finished! This has been My Project for the past week or so, between work and packing for my move. I had decided a while ago that I wanted to take a terrarium of plants from around our home with me to my dorm; home is my happy place, and I wanted to bring that to my dorm. After the Cipher Hunt I decided to do this along with it.
Gravity Falls started my Freshman year of high school: it finished my Senior year. This show helped me not fear growing up and brought me some wonderful friends along the way. The Mystery Shack is my fictional happy place, and I thought it deserved a spot in my terrarium.

For those of you who need to re-watch this tonight…

Sometimes in our lives, we all have pain, we all have sorrow

But if we are wise we know that there’s always tomorrow

Lean on me, when you’re not strong

And I’ll be your friend, I’ll help you carry on

I am in a lot of pain and I am very scared. I am a Jewish lesbian living in California. I grew up learning our history, my ancestors’ history, as just that: History. In the past. Today a swastika was spraypainted on a storefront in Philadelphia. My home isn’t my home anymore.

My godfather is looking at homes in Canada so that we can move. I saw an article about Amsterdam welcoming American refugees with open arms. American refugees. We used to be the nation refugees fled to. Now we are the ones fleeing.

Every time I think of Kate, I cry…

She is such a good soul, she has brought so much joy to so many people, she helped me find an inner peace I did not know was possible. I thought my brain was broken. I thought I was broken. Kate has helped me understand myself, feel heard, feel okay. She has helped me so deeply on my self-love journey. I was able to come out because of her. 

Kate is my hero.

She has brought so much light into my life, into the lives of so many strong women. Knowing that she is in pain hurts so much. I also feel so much for Hillary. I unapologetically support her. She is a compassionate human being who’s had to put up with so much shit her entire career. Both of them have had to. Seeing them together enjoying each other’s company before this shitstorm happened is heartbreaking but also soothing…

This Saturday night, I don’t want to see Alec’s face at all. I want Kate to be dressed up as Clinton, giving the most beautiful rousing from-the-heart speech for the entire hour. When she needs breaks, Leslie will step in and say everything she wants to say. Uncensored. These two women have been censored enough. For all the shit and fear they’re about to endure, it is the least we can give them.

My heart feels broken. My body feels hollow. I cry so much now. Everyone I love, even women I’ve never met, is in pain. The place I proudly called my home for 27 years isn’t anymore. It’s no longer a haven for anyone I hold dear.

I want to end on this:

Two incredibly hard-working, strong, kind women embracing each other, smiling, and singing “Lean On Me”. Because sometimes that’s all we can do… be there for each other to help make even the darkest times feel a little less scary…

Today I fucked up... by attempting to be a scientist

This actually happened a while ago, back when I was in middle school. So my friend and I were working on a lab with one of those bunsen burners, beakers, and strange white powders. I was partnered with a girl who I’m still really close to. We were working on a bunsen burner project at the time and had set our glass beaker too high above the flame. Another girl told us that we just needed to loosen the object that was holding the beaker so we could move it lower. Of course we didn’t know that we had to have a teacher help us. So we went right ahead and unscrewed it and the beaker fell and smashed to pieces. Humiliating. If that wasn’t bad enough, I was stirring a small formula with a glass stirring stick and I set it on the edge of the table (sad, I know) and it rolled off and smashed to the ground. I am a safety hazard to science labs.

This is probably the only political post I’m going to make on my Tumblr - it’s been about 24 hours since the president of the United States was announced. I don’t know if there’s anything I can say that hasn’t already been said at this point, so instead of focusing on what has happened, I want to keep my sights set on what can happen and how I can contribute to that brighter future. Friends, take as much time as you need to experience the emotions you’re feeling right now and don’t hesitate to ask others for help or healing. No matter what happens, though, I want to continue making empathy, compassion, and love the center of my work and life regardless of what happens around me. Let’s move forward together.

Pairing: Jungkook x Reader

Word Count: 1691

“Is there a reason you’re in my bed?”

“I had the weirdest dream about you last night and now I can’t help but imagine what you’d look like naked.”

You were happy that management let you see your brother and his friends as you please, usually they were a lot more strict to let anyone else around but with Jimin and the other boys pleads they finally agreed to let you come to the dorm whenever you wanted to. And with you coming as you please you were happy to hear when they boys moved dorms that they found a dorm with an extra room, a guest room. It wasn’t as much of a guest room as it was your room since you stayed over almost every other weekend.

Opening the door you flicked on the lights and nearly screamed as your heart stopped for a second. “Jungkook, is there a reason you’re in my bed?” You asked while taking off your shoes and rings you had on your fingers. You walked over to the dresser and placed the excess jewelry on top and turning to see Jungkook still in your bed turned on his side while he nonchalantly shrugged his shoulders. “So no reason or you just don’t want to answer?”

You plop down on the bed beside him, you mimic his position, facing his while propping yourself on your forearm allowing you to look down at him. “You know,” Jungkook started, his eyes looking up at you but there was something different. His eyes looked almost dark, a sense of greed hinting in them. “I had the weirdest dream about you last night and now I can’t help but imagine what you’d look like naked.” Jungkook’s eyes stayed glued to your face as you sat up abruptly, he watched every feature of yours making sure his words didn’t make you feel uncomfortable. He of course felt something for you but being a hormonal teenaged boy his dream of you last night only made him horny.

“My brother-” You started but was cut off by Jungkook now speaking over you.

“Your brother already thinks that I like you, it’s really only a matter of time.” He waves you off sitting up and inching closer to you, you were incredibly close now. Of course you’ve always been close to Jungkook, you’d occasionally cuddle when you both were hanging out either on the couch or in each other’s rooms and got tired. Your brother would always say comments about ‘how cute’ you both were whenever he found you both asleep together. He never was the over protective big brother who told every one of his friends to stay away from his little sister. You were the same age as Jungkook, only three months younger so Jimin never made a huge deal about you two being so close with each other. But still being as close as you are with Jungkook there was a tension in the air that you hadn’t felt with him before.

You tilted your head slightly before straightening it back. “Matter of time for what?”

“For this.” Jungkook’s hands slipped to the small of your back all while smashing his lips to yours. He easily flipped you over once your body hit his. A gasp left you at the quick movement and Jungkook took the opportunity to slide his tongue into your mouth instantly dominating as his hands laced with yours pinning them above your head. His head dipped to your neck instantly finding your sweet spot and sucking down. Your back arched into him which only made him smirk, one of his hands left yours dipping down into your leggings you were wearing and rubbed against your clothed heat. “So wet already…” He mumbled. Letting go of your other hand his hands hooked onto the waistband of your leggings and panties pulling them down in one swift movement. His hands quickly made their way to the hem of your shirt tugging it off of your body and not a moment later your bra joined the rest of your clothes.

With the lack of clothes in front of Jungkook you felt very naked, well you were but feeling naked make you feel slightly unconscious. Heat rose to your cheeks and your arms came up beginning to cover yourself up. Jungkook’s hands immediately grabbed yourself halting your movements, his eyes stared down at you with a sudden intensity that you felt goosebumps run across your body. “You’re so beautiful.” He whispers. His voice dropped when speaking, his hands lightly tugged your arms away from your chest while settling himself in between your legs. He lowered himself once again meeting your lips, this kiss was hungry and rough but every bit of it made you feel hotter and hotter. His lips leave yours again to go to your neck, he stayed there for a bit to leave love bites all along your neck, you now knew there was no way makeup would be able to hide any of his markings he left on you. You moan out when you feel Jungkook’s tongue glide over your now bruised neck. Your eyes close enjoying the feeling when you feel his lips leave your neck and feel his hot breath fan over your heat. Your legs begin to close but Jungkook grabs ahold of your hips adjusting yourself so your legs now hang over his shoulders and without a second glance he dips his tongue into your heat causing a loud moan to course through the room.  “You are so wet baby, and all for me.” His voice vibrates into your skin and you moan again.

He sucks on your clit harsher causing more moans coming out of your mouth. If he didn’t care about pleasuring you so much he would’ve taken a moment to smirk at the sounds he was causing you to drone out. Without a warning he inserts a finger past your folds and you let out a gasp and grip onto his hair moaning out his name feeling your walls clench around his finger, he moves his finger before adding another one, he moves his finger in and out over and over again. He watched as you trembled, your face contorted in pleasure as you felt you coming closer to your climax. He removed his fingers and replaced them with his mouth once again. Jungkook now felt your whole body tremble as he lapped up all of your juices. He continued to lick and suck on your heat until he heard quiet whimpers come from you and a weak push of his head as you soon became oversensitive to all of the pleasure he was giving you.

He crawled over you kissing down on you, your hands reached up and tangled your fingers into his messy hair. You whined once you realized he was still fully clothed and you were lying underneath him naked. “Jungkook,” You whined into the kiss, his lips leave yours when he pulls back giving you a confused look. Even with his face scrunched up he still looked absolutely gorgeous to you. “I don’t find it fair that I’m the only one naked here.” You huff out sticking your bottom lip out. A laugh escapes Jungkook as he dropped his head into your neck once again, body shaking from his laughter. Once he was done he sat up, weight going all on his knees as he was still settled in between your legs. He flung his shirt to the floor and brought himself back over you kissing you.

His lips left yours almost immediately when a knock was heard on your door. “(Y/N)? Can we talk?” Jimin’s voice was heard on the other side of the door and began to open.

“I’m naked!” You screamed throwing the pillow that was under your head at the door causing it to pause as Jimin froze and quickly closed the door uttering multiple “I’m sorry’s” You and Jungkook both froze looking at each other before rushing off of your bed and throwing each other the scattered clothing that was discarded. Jungkook getting dressed quicker than you as he had only been shirtless. You threw your underwear and bra into the hamper at the door once you pulled your shirt back on.

“I just really need to talk to you…like now.” Jimin spoke from the outside of your door. Your heart was pounding against your chest looking at Jungkook with pleading eyes. “One second, just getting dressed!” You called back at the door.

“What do we do!” You whispered to Jungkook seeing as he began walking towards the door. “No!” You grab Jungkook pulling him back. “Are you crazy? No! He’s going to get suspicious, go…go hide-” You paused looking around the room to the small closet. “Go hide in the closet!” You began pushing Jungkook towards the closet that would easily hide him, it may be a bit cramped but it’ll have to do.

“(Y/N), you’ve got to be kidding me.” Jungkook stopped walking causing you to bump into him. “I’m not hiding in your closet.”

“Jungkook, hide.” You push harder, he took a step forward then pushed back against you, you tried pushing again but he was stronger than you and wouldn’t budge. “Jungkook, please.” You begged continuing to push even if you knew it was no use. “I’ll do anything just please hide.”

“Anything?” You didn’t have to look at him to see the smirk that was placed on his lips. “I’m holding you to that.” He turned around pecking your lips before walking into your closet and closing the door. You let out a quick sigh and hurried to your door opening the door and see Jimin.

“Jimin!” You smile, “What’s up?” You question stepping aside to let him into your room. He looked around your room as if he was looking to find something. His eyes scanned your bed seeing the slightly disheveled sheets and blankets.

“Why’s your bed a mess?”

“I just didn’t make it from last night.” You defended. “What did you need to talk to me about?”

Jimin turned to face you, all seriousness etched on his features as he sat on your bed patting the spot beside him ushering you to sit down.

“Jungkook. I wanted to talk about Jungkook.”


Size 11x18 • Printed on Canvas $65 • Hey guys! I’m moving out at the end of the week and need some extra money to buy a bed and all the other stuff that comes with moving out haha so I’m selling my pieces from the Black Lives Create show.

With the little amount of women of color in movies/movie production today, it is an honor to not only be cast as one of the leads, but also to be apart of one of the best teams I know of. I moved to LA with little plans but big hopes, and it is exciting to say the least that my friends and I have come this far in the project. With that said, our kickstarter just recently launched, and we need your support in order to make Karōshi a tangible film. Whether that be through a contribution or a share, it really means a lot. thank you <3

Watch our kickstarter here:


hi. it’s la'shaunae
im in a very toxic and verbally abusive environment and im scared that ill hurt myself soon if i dont leave.
i cant find work (so pls dont send mean anons telling me not to “beg” online)
ive been trying very hard to sell my clothes but im still not really making money from that
and i do not know what else to do but i trust all of my online friends
ive been stressed and crying almost 80% of the day EVERY night and i just want to be more happier for once
ive been trying to get noticed online by modeling companies but i have been unsuccessful with that.
just donating a lil will add up eventually
i gave my family all that i had and now im left with nothing and not getting help
my bank account was closed bc of my hospital bills putting me in debt
im gnna save up in my paypal (bc my bank account closed) to move out
i dont know where the fuck ill go but ill have somewhere to go thats not here.


You made me brave. You made me someone who I wasn’t, but a version of myself that I liked.

With your help anxiety take the back seat in every conversation. With your guiding hand I made more new friends in one night than I did in a year before we met.

I like myself more when you are around. I am not scared to show affection, I don’t overthink every move. I am content on just ‘being’ when you’re around.

And I can’t decide what I hate more; the fact I need you to feel brave, or the fact that you can’t be with me every second of every day so I can be brave all the time.

Imagine Kylo meeting Jyn
  • Kylo: You'll never win. I am here to finish my grandfather's work.
  • Jyn: Listen up, punk, I didn't lose all my friends and the love of my life and my parents and risk everything for the safety of our galaxy, just to be stopped by some emo wanna be Sith Lord. I didn't choose the rebel life, the rebel life chose me, now move out of my way, or so help me I will tear your pretty black dress and kick your butt into a black hole!
  • Literally everyone on Star-killer base: OHHH KYLO GOT BURNED!!!

Hey T! Not that you need an update on our lives, but because you’ve done so much for us I just wanted to fill in a bit.  2016 was a little rough, you could say (as was the end of 2015), but we made it through.  My marriage ended, which was so incredibly difficult on us and my self esteem. I felt like the biggest failure for not being able to make something work.  This was stressful enough without the added factor that he moved back to Texas where he’s from.  The hardest part, though, was him basically cutting himself off from Leyton’s life.  I cannot believe how beautifully Leyton has handled everything, despite how much it breaks my heart for him, and it was with the help and support from the amazing second family of fellow fans that you have brought into my life that I am able to smile today, and that Leyton has felt such boundless love despite it all.  Things are still far from easy, but my best friend @in-silent-screams13 and many, MANY other incredible people that I know because of you make getting through every day that much easier and have done more for me than I can say.  Thank YOU for them, and for all the support you’ve given in the past and today still through your beautifully relatable music. I’m working on being the best mom and person I can be, and lost 70 pounds for the sake of my health and keeping up with my little guy, which is one good thing I can say about 2016- the other that I can say honestly is that I am finally feeling more like myself again, and rediscovering myself in ways I didn’t know possible.   We love and miss you, and hope this new year brings you so much joy! ❤️

tips for science majors (and all college students)

hey everyone! i decided to compile a list of tips for college students, specifically science majors because a lot of people are starting college soon. a lot of these could apply to any majors in general, but i’m simply speaking from my own experience.

  • handwrite your notes! I know it can be tempting to type them on your laptop because so many science classes are so heavy with information and lectures move so fast, but handwriting notes is super helpful and a lot of times an easier option, especially when drawing diagrams and writing reactions 
  • make at least 2 friends in every class to study and share notes with. chances are you won’t understand everything perfectly and getting a different perspective might make things clearer. also helpful if you miss a lecture!
  • practice questions are your best friend! this is true for most classes, but they’re absolutely necessary when it comes to classes like organic chemistry. look up practice questions and tests online and use them.
  • if you don’t already know any statistics, learn the basics. stats is ESSENTIAL and has come in handy for almost every science class i’ve taken. knowing what a t-test is, p value, alpha value, etc. beforehand is super helpful for labs and reading papers.
  • practice reading scientific journal articles as much as you can. this is a skill that i’ve yet to master and can be really frustrating but knowing how to process and understand those dense articles is really important no matter what you want to do in your life. most school libraries have subscriptions to most major databases like pubmed and journals like nature and science, so dedicate some time once or twice a month to read an article that’s interesting to you. focus on trying to interpret the figures and summarizing the data.
  • youtube is great for explaining scientific concepts you don’t understand. because certain processes and molecules etc. are so complex and may be hard to understand from a textbook with words and 2-D pictures, videos on youtube might explain and help visualize things better. there are some good ones out there but googling the topic you’re looking for usually brings up some helpful material!
  • get involved in research as early as possible. even if you don’t think you’ll like it, getting involved in research is a great experience for anyone. research professors and their work and email as many as you can before the semester starts to see if you can work in their labs. not only does it look great on your resume but you’ll also learn so much about the scientific process.
  • get a chalkboard/whiteboard for your room. it’s a great study tool to practice drawing mechanisms, reactions, processes, figures, etc. it literally saved my butt in organic chem last year.
  • don’t get stressed if you don’t know what you want to do with your major. try different things. do research in different labs on varying topics, talk to your professors and advisors, do some shadowing, talk to people in different industries.  
  • rewrite your notes and redraw diagrams. rewriting notes is a good tip for anyone, but redrawing diagrams in a different way than they’re presented in your textbook or lecture in a way that you understand better is super helpful.
  • don’t put lab reports off until the last minute. lab reports are the bane of my existence, but there’s nothing more stressful than doing one at the last minute before it’s due and realizing your results made NO sense. start them as soon as you finish the lab and don’t be afraid to ask for help from your lab instructor or other students.

those are all the ones i could think of at the moment! hopefully some of these are helpful for some of you :-)
