i wish i were awesome like you

One-paragraph appreciation for the introvert types

ISTJs:  I think it’s great that there are so many of you, because ISTJs drive the world, get stuff done, and always seem to know what’s going on. You’re so incredibly reliable and trustworthy and we need people like that. Without your devotion and logical thinking, the world would be nowhere.

ISFJs: You guys are the glue that holds society together. I love how much you care about everyone and how much effort you put in to make sure everyone is okay. Seriously, you deserve more credit for being such great people, and you have both the drive and natural kindness to help a lot of people.

INFJs: Not only do you have other peoples’ best interests in mind, you guys dream big and have bold ideals. You may not think they’ll happen, but because you’re all so gutsy and organized (unlike me) I feel like you can and will accomplish your goals. I wish there were more of you, because you’re brilliant.

INTJs: You nerds are going to change the world. Seriously, you’re all intelligent, knowledgeable, determined and generally great at stuff, and you’re unbound by expectations. You are creators, challengers, improvers, and while you are few, you can have massive effects on the world on your own.

ISTPs: I know none of you are that dependent on the approval of others, but for what it’s worth: you are great. Your cleverness, pragmatism and bravery mean that you can accomplish awesome things that others could only dream of, and your calmness under pressure is something I strive for.

ISFPs: I feel like the world would be so much more peaceful if people adopted your mindset. It’s incredible how well you guys can see the beauty in others and the world around you. Flexible, talented people like you have so much potential, and since you’re all so kind and charming it’s great to be around you.

INFPs: You guys are most interested in deep thoughts and long-term goals and don’t care about shallow things. And that’s a wonderful way to be. I’m so glad that there are people like you: deep thinkers who don’t forget to look after others, altruists who still seek to define themselves. You fit so many great qualities into one incredible personality.

INTPs: My fellow oddities, you are awesome. You have whole worlds inside your heads, and you tend to know the right answers and ask the right questions. Your curiosity and imagination combined are a force to be reckoned with, and you are definitely some of the smartest people in the world.

The Transfer

The Transfer (m)

Word count: 9.4k

Genre/Warnings: language, angst, smut, dirty talk

Pairing: Hoseok x Reader

Summary: You’re a sophomore in college who always runs away from relationships. That is until you meets Jung Hoseok, the South Korean transfer who shows you what a relationship can be. Although you know it’s wrong since he’s your best friends Jimin’s new roommate.

(Again this is my old story from my Wattpad (5sos version on there) but I wanted a Hoseok story and to finish this one.) Plus I was listening to Selena Gomez’s song, Bad Liar and yeah.

Parts: two


“Kook?” you yelled threw the apartment. You waited until he answered, “Yes Puddin’?” He yelled back.

“Do you need me to wash any clothes for you? I have a little more room in the washer!”

“Yes, one second!” You heard him shuffle in his room grabbing his hamper. He walked through the den and kitchen to the laundry room. “Thank you, Puddin’.”

“You know Jimin called me Puddin’ the other day,” you said taking his clothes out and sticking them into the washing machine.

“That’s my nickname for you!” He pouted, leaning against the door frame.

It was true, ever since sixth grade. You never wanted anyone to call you by your name for some reason. You thought it might have been some teen rebellion thing. So when you came to school one day with a Harley Quinn shirt on Jungkook took that as the chance to call you puddin’ and it just stuck. You two had been best friends since and now you were in college together. It was your sophomore year at the University and you loved it. Your parents had also found the two of you an apartment close to the school, so you could “stick together,” as your parents called it. They always thought you two would end up together but you two were too close for that. You loved Jungkook but you could never be in love with him.

Abandoned by Disney

(warning: very long story)

Some of you may have heard that the Disney corporation is responsible for at least one real, “live” Ghost Town.

Disney built the “Treasure Island” resort in Baker’s Bay in the Bahamas. It didn’t START as a ghost town! Disney’s cruise ships would actually stop at the resort and leave tourists there to relax in luxury.

This is a FACT. Look it up.

Disney blew $30,000,000 on the place… yes, thirty million dollars.

Then they abandoned it.

Disney blamed the shallow waters (too shallow for their ships to safely operate) and there was even blame cast on the workers, saying that since they were from the Bahamas, they were too lazy to work a regular schedule.

That’s where the factual nature of their story ends. It wasn’t because of sand, and it obviously wasn’t because “foreigners are lazy”. Both are convenient excuses.

No, I sincerely doubt those reasons were legitimate. Why don’t I buy the official story?

Because of Mowgli’s Palace.

Rock & Yeol

Pairing: Reader x Chanyeol

Genre: Smut, fluff

Word count: 4,7K

Summary: You get invited to act in some hot scenes along side Chanyeol in his band’s new MV. Will it all be just acting or will something change?

This fanfic is a special birthday gift to my very good friend Valeria. I hope you like this gift I made for you and I wish you nothing but happiness in your life because you deserve it. Me and Chanyeol love you very much 💕 (but in different ways 😜)


When you thought about starting a rock & roll covers band you were just looking forward to wearing some awesome clothes, get free drinks at the bar and having cute guys lining up to get a date with you. But you have been playing the same old bars for what seems like ages, your clothes are practically made of sweat, the free drinks get boring pretty damn fast and instead of cute guys all you get is a bunch of idiots who think it’s ok to try to get their hands on you while you’re performing.

Tonight’s a Friday night, you just finished a gig at one of the usual spots and you played here so many times you feel like you know all the regulars. “I have to step out of the bar for a minute, after all this time my eyes should be better at dealing with the strong lights and cigarette smoke.” You said to your drummer.

You went outside and spent some time chatting to the bouncer before going back in and finding your band mates pointing you out to a guy you have never seen before. “Great, just what I needed…” You developed a strict no idiots policy but your band mates are not always helpful in telling guys to fuck off, and you usually end up having to dish out the fuck offs by yourself.

As he approached you you noticed that he’s pretty well dressed, and a second look at him tells you he’s not one of the usual idiots with some new clothes, so you decided to give him a break. “You totally rocked the house tonight.” Was the first thing he said to you.

anonymous asked:

Hi! How are you? I saw the pictures of your previous trip to Japan. They are awesome. I plan to visit Kyoto this April and I would like to ask which Shinsengumi related places are worth the visit? Are there any places where I can buy Hakuouki related things? Last year I watched the whole Hakuouki anime series (all of the seasons, movies, specials) and I became a fan and I would like to visit the places which were mentioned in the anime. As you were there in April was it crowded? Best wishes, Éva

Thank you! I didn’t post nearly enough of them, honestly, I have so much more to talk about because the whole experience was just… completely surreal, but what is time? 

There are books dedicated to touring Japan to visit significant sites relating to the Shinsengumi, including two Hakuouki ones (one of which JUST came out). Of course, the biggest issue is that this information is all in Japanese and that’s something you’re going to come up against if you want to visit these places. You definitely don’t have to understand Japanese (I’ve heard of people managing) but it honestly helps.

My personal trip started in Tokyo, then we went down to Kyoto, back up North to Aizu-Wakamatsu and then onto Hakodate. We really just focused on many of the big spots but there’s just so much to cover, two weeks was never going to be enough, especially as it was my friend’s first time in Japan too so we had other things to do. 

As to the crowds, being hanami (cherry blossom viewing) season Tokyo and Kyoto were crowded, but I feel like that’s always a thing since it’s Japan, but the more you go off the beaten path, and the Shinsengumi sites kind of are off the beaten path, it’s not so bad. Aizu and Hakodate are definitely not as crowded, especially with foreign tourists. My friend and I were definitely standouts.

As far as being able to buy Hakuouki related goods, if it’s related to the Shinsengumi your chances of finding Hakuouki things to buy is high but it really depends on the location. I had the best luck in Kyoto, Aizu, and Hakodate since… they’re kind of big Shinsengumi hot spots, but we didn’t spend a lot of time in Tokyo for me to really go looking for stuff there. (I will say there is a disappointing lack of stuff in the Animates I went to.) I’ll be going back in April and focusing more on the sites in Tokyo so I’ll have to report back on that.

Here’s some of the major highlights of my trip that might be most worth noting:

**Warning: Long post is long! Click the location names for relevant links!**

Tokyo

Hijikata Toshizou Museum

The Hijikata family residence where Hijikata’s family resided during his lifetime has evolved to include a museum. Since the site is still a private residence, the added on museum is only open during certain days of the year. Typically two Sundays each month. Hino is considered part of greater Tokyo, but it’s quite a hike from the city itself. This is one of those places you have to be prepared to go to and spend a good chunk of your day at. The museum is small and you won’t be there long but it’s a wonderful place to go. The family runs it and is very pleasant to visit with. This is also where you would go to see Hijikata’s beloved sword, Izuminokami Kanesada. 

Sekiden-ji

Being that Hino is Hijikata’s hometown, there’s more than just the museum to visit. Just a few minutes journey from the museum is the Sekiden-ji or Sekiden Temple which is one of at least four places, I believe, with a grave for Hijikata. It’s a temple with a cemetery, containing many members of the Hijikata family, so it’s important to be respectful but it’s easy to find the stone marker and the grave itself is nearby. 

Hino also has a big Shinsengumi festival every year in May. One of these days I’m going to go to it. 

It’s good to wander around the city a bit. There’s so many houses with the Hijikata name plate and it’s clear this town is proud of it’s famous historical figure. I’m looking forward to going back and exploring it more on my own to see what I missed last time.

Itabashi - Kondou Isami’s Grave Marker

Itabashi is where Kondou was executed and after the war was over, Nagakura Shinpachi built the grave to memorialize the commander in 1876. Hijikata’s name is also inscribed on the stone pillar. Nearby is also a grave for Shinpachi as well. It’s a straight shot from Itabashi station so it’s not too difficult to find. The grave honestly is a memorial to the entirety of the Shinsengumi, but being that this is where Kondou was executed, it has special significance for that reason.

Other places to visit in Tokyo, that I intend to visit when I go back this year, include: 

Shieikan dojo - There’s nothing much remaining here beyond a stone marker, but this is the origin of the Shinsengumi and worth visiting.
Ryuugen-ji - Kondou’s body was brought here (sans his head) after his execution and buried. 
Imado Shrine - This site is primarily famous for being the birthplace of the manekineko or ‘lucky cats’ but it’s also significant for being the site of the hospital where Okita Souji was supposed to be recovering from tuberculosis. It’s not his grave or where he actually died though.
Sensou-ji - But his grave is close at the famous Sensou-ji, however, it is only open one day a year.
Chofu/Mitaka City - Birthplace of Kondou Isami and many members of the Shinsengumi. 
Kashio Bridge - Former site of the Battle of Koushuu-Katsunuma, the battle the followed the Battle of Toba-Fushimi and Kondou Isami’s last battle before his execution.

Kyoto

Mibudera / Yagi House

One of the sites of the Shinsengumi’s headquarters, these two places are a must see. The nice thing is that once you find one, the other is right down the same road, practically around the corner. You’ll see big “makoto” banners that signify they’re Shinsengumi sites. The Yagi House does do tours but they will not be in English (hopefully you get the nice man with the strong Kansai accent–he’s super nice). After the tour you get to go to the little shop that’s out in front for some tea and a treat as part of paying for a ticket for the tour. There’s a little garden in Mibudera that you pay 100 yen to get into but that’s where all the statues and memorials are that are the highlight. Including this really neat prayer board:

Nishi Honganji

The second headquarters of the Shinsengumi. It’s HUGE and it’s beautiful. Definitely worth a visit. Seriously, my pictures do not do the size of this place justice. It was immense. No wonder the squad wanted to relocate here. 

Ikeda Inn/Hana no Mai Restaurant

Now the site of the Hana no Mai Ikeda Inn branch but there’s a stone marker outside that states that this is the site where the Ikeda Inn used to stand. You need to make reservations but worth it for a good meal and where I drank my way through the Hakuouki Shinsengumi XD

Nijo Castle

Nijo Castle is a good place to visit just because it’s Kyoto and it’s where the Shogun lived when he was being protected by the Shinsengumi. As I recall it’s the site in the Hakuouki game where Kazama and the other demons reveal themselves to Chizuru while the Shinsengumi are guarding the Shogun.

Sanjo Bridge

We weren’t able to make it here, being on a time crunch, but it is near the castle. A site that is also famous to the Shinsengumi and all of Kyoto in general. This is the bridge where the notice was that Sano protected in Hakuouki. It’s also said that there’s a sword wound on one of the pillars on the east side from the Ikeda Inn Incident. 

Shimabara

Our ryokan was here so we got kind of an intimate experience of the area but it’s a nice little area to explore if you have the chance. The infamous red light district, this is where many men, the Shinsengumi included, would go to relax and drink off-duty. The entrance gate is kind of the major tourist attraction but this is where you can find the Sumiya.

Sumiya

This is the ageya famous for being visited frequently by Serizawa Kamo and the location where Hijikata and Kondou got Serizawa drunk before later assassinating him at the Yagi House. It’s also the oldest remaining example of an ageya still in existence. There’s sword marks inside made by Serizawa on the first and second floor. You need to make a reservation to see the second floor but it’s so worth it. We weren’t allowed to take pictures inside (which is pretty typical) but there’s one room that is just covered all over with inlaid mother of pearl and it’s just insane. And they still don’t know how they did it! 

You are allowed to take pictures on the first floor and this is supposedly one of the sword marks from Serizawa:

Our ryokan was literally two houses down from this site and when I realized where we were I might have had an emotional freak out… >_>

There’s soooo many places in Kyoto though, one day I hope to go back and find the others that I know we missed. Fun side-story, one of the things one of my friends wanted to do what do some Shinsengumi cosplay, so he found us a shop that did it and on our last day in Kyoto we dressed up and got to visit the Mibudera in our outfits, it was pretty embarrassing but I’m glad we did it XD

Here, have a picture:

Ironically, it was the one day in our stay that it was RAINING LIKE CRAZY -_-

Aizu-Wakamatsu

Tsuruga-jou (Tsuruga Castle) aka Aizu-Wakamatsu Castle

When Saitou talks about defending Aizu, this is the castle at the center of it all. Tsuruga Castle was the home of Lord Matsudaira Katamori, who is the man responsible for sponsoring the Shinsengumi in the first place. He is the man that they feel indebted to and is basically the man they answered to, ultimately, and this is where he and his family resided. And for me, this is where my fascination with this period in history started, so naturally I had to go back. The original castle had been so riddled artillery fire during the Battle of Aizu, that it was demolished by the new government in 1874. The tenshu, the largest tower of the castle, was reconstructed in 1965 and currently houses a museum on the inside. It really is a must-see for anyone interested in the Bakumatsu and the Shinsengumi. 

Iimori-yama (Iimori Hill) / Byakko-tai Memorial

The Byakko-tai was a squadron of young teenage boys from the Aizu domain that fought to defend Tsuruga Castle and the city of Aizu during the Battle of Aizu. They were fighting along with the remnants of the Shinsengumi that stayed behind (such as Saitou), perhaps not directly though under the same banner of Aizu, but tragically, when the boys saw Tsuruga Castle burning they assumed the castle had fallen and each committed ritual suicide on the hill. While the castle would eventually fall, the tragedy is the boys’ death was premature. At the top of a long path of stairs climbing up the side of the hill (mountain? Feels like a mountain lol) is the memorial dedicated to them. This was the site where I really felt my first interest in the Bakumatsu and the Boshin War blossoming, so while not exactly a Shinsengumi site per se, it’s still related history and worth visiting. 

Hakodate

Goryoukaku

The famous site of the last battle of the Boshin War. Goryoukaku fort is where Hijikata retreats with what remains of the pro-Shogunate forces when they flee to Hokkaido, at the time called Ezo. Now the site is a park that is infamous for it’s gorgeous cherry blossoms. I was sad that unfortunately we were there a little too soon for the cherry blossoms but practically all the trees on the site are cherry blossom trees so when they are in full bloom it is quite a site I’m told. 

The Magistrate’s Office (lower picture) was only recently rebuilt as a museum over the site of the original office and is the location of Hijikata and Chizuru’s infamous kiss in Hakuouki ;) Though in reality it is the last stand of Hijikata and his beleaguered men. Walking through it is rather incredible as much detail was put into the restoration and one of the rare sites that lets you take pictures throughout the interior. They had DVDs for sale that went through the details and the lengths that they went through to reconstruct the Magistrate’s Office and it is beyond fascinating, I purchased a copy and hope to be able to share it some day.

Goryoukaku Tower

Not necessarily a Shinsengumi site historically speaking but if you want a nice aerial view of Goryoukaku Fort this is where you want to go. Also, personally, there’s two wonderful Hijikata statues here that are worth seeing, and a whole blow-by-blow of the Battle of Hakodate that’s really neat and that I have pictures of that I hope to share at some point.

Shomyo-ji (Shomyo Temple) / Memorial Monument for Hijikata Toshizou and the Shinsengumi

Here’s a description taken from the sign on site:

“After joining Enomoto’s army, Toshizo Hijikata (deputy leader of Shinsengumi) was killed in the battle of Hakodate. Opinions are divided regarding the exact location of his burial; Ippongi in Wakamatsu-cho, Tsuruoka-cho, or Eikokubashi in Jujigai. A record taken from the Kongoji Temple in Hino, Hijikata’s hometown in present-day suburban Tokyo, only noted that Hijikata’s memorial monument was erected in Shomyoji Temple in Hakodate. The monument did not survive three fires during the Meiji era, and the present monument was erected in 1973 by volunteers. 

Four others names of Shinsengumi members’, whose tombstones in Shomyoji Temple were destroyed during a typhoon in 1953, were also engraved on the monument.”

Monument Marking the Site of Hijikata’s Death

Located in front of a rather normal office building, this was the end of our pilgrimage, which I’m not a religious person necessarily but the weight of standing here and having come so far, I cried. Finding this was a little difficult but we had managed to get lucky and when I explained to our taxi driver why we were there and what we were doing and he literally drove us to our last two destinations pointing out highlights and patiently waiting for us at each site. It’s really cheesy, I know, but coming here was the pinnacle of a long journey and I really hope I can go back again one day to pay my respects again.

This person’s blog has some great suggestions of things to see in Kyoto relating to the Shinsengumi: 

http://matome.naver.jp/odai/2140320228711779601?&page=1

Of course, as I said earlier, the only downside is that none of it is in English, which is going to be the struggle for anyone really wanting an immersive Shinsengumi or Bakumatsu experience. While you can get around not knowing the language I feel like, honestly, there would be a lot lacking. Especially if you try to venture further North to Aizu or Hakodate, Aizu in particular would be tough for non-Japanese speakers. 

There were so many places to see and since I was not on my own there was just not enough time to hit them all, but these were the major stopping points on our tour along the path of the Shinsengumi. 

Love life tips: Dealing with crushes

So, I hear sometimes people angsting a fair bit about crushes. Fair enough, man, I’ve spent a long time in my day angsting over crushes. I still get crushes - metric tons of them, you have no idea how many people I crush on - but they don’t bother me so much anymore. Here’s my tip:

Stop playing the “imaginary relationship with my crush” games.

You know how when you’re playing sports coaches will always talk about visualization and all that junk? Playing through those scenarios in your mind *has an effect*. It lays down some pathways.

When you spend all that time daydreaming about an imagingary relationship that doesn’t exist, it deepens things, makes them more serious. And when it conflicts with the reality that you *aren’t* dating, that is what, I find, causes the serious pain.

And if you do end up dating them? Then you’ve got the conflict of what you imagined your relationship with them to be like versus what it actually ends up being, and that causes some pain on its own.

I’m not saying suppress the crush. Like, I still think about someone and go “Damn I’m attracted to that person, I really wish they were available/interested/appropriate.” You can think about how awesome your crush is, because let’s be honest - fighting it often is a struggle that just takes up more energy.

Just stop playing the “imaginary relationship” game with people.

My Heart - Alex Standall x Reader

Request- “she’s clays sister and she has an alternate fashion and music taste and Hannah basically gets them together”

“GET UP Y/N JENSEN!!” Clay was banging on your door and shouting at you. “WE’RE GOING TO BE LATE- AGAIN!” You were surprised the door was still intact.
You groaned.

“…gimme five more minutes…please…” you mumbled into your pillow, dreary and pleading. Getting up really wasn’t on the agenda.

“If you’re not ready in 20 minutes, Y/N, I’m leaving without you.” It was an empty threat, you knew he wouldn’t, but it still pushed you to finally get out of bed.

You and your brother walked to school together, and met his almost-girlfriend-but-not-really Hannah along the way. You and Hannah had been acquaintances before, but ever since her and Clay got closer, so did she and you. Currently, she was attempting to set you up with her friend Alex Standall, a guy you’d had a crush on for a while.
Alex and you were similar. You both had quite quirky looks, and had similar tastes in music. You didn’t mind walking to school with Hannah and Clay because they always included you rather than letting you third wheel.

—-

At lunch, Hannah came to sit next to you.

“Hey, Hannah. What’s up?”

“Nothing much, except the fact I asked Alex to sit with me at lunch.” She smirked.

“Oh- it’s okay if you wanna go sit with him, I don’t mind!” You smiled, trying not to look too hurt.

“No, silly! He’s sitting with me. On this table. With you.” She explained. The lightbulb turned on in your head.

“Oh god! Do I look okay? Have I got food in my teeth?” You frantically smoothed your hair down and pushed up your glasses. She chuckled.

“You look gorgeous.” She reassured you, right as Alex Standall approached the table, and sat down. He eyed you up and down dubiously.

“Hey Hannah, Y/N.”

“Hey.” You smiled sheepishly. Alex knew your name???

You ate lunch with Hannah and Alex, and got more comfortable and the time passed. You joked and laughed and couldn’t stop yourself from looking at Alex at least every ten seconds. What was weird was, most of the time he was looking back.

As you left the lunch hall, someone shouted for you.

“Y/N! Hold up.” It was Alex. It was Alex???

“Oh, hey Alex.” You smiled.

“You got a free period?” He asked.

“Yeah, actually. I was planning on heading to the library.”

“Well, if you don’t mind changing your plans, how about heading out with me?” You’d stopped by the lockers so as not to cause disruption in the hallway.

“‘Out’ where?” You were doubtful.

“Out of school.” He grinned mischeviously. You bit your lip.

Clay will kill me, you thought.

“Yeah, why not.”

—–

You two were sat on the top of a hill somewhere, you weren’t entirely sure how you’d ended up there, but there you were. Alex’s speaker was playing music, and the sun was lowering in the sky.

“So, Hannah’s told me a lot about you.” He began, “but you’re a lot better than she described.”
You blushed. Alex was so sweet.

“What kind of things has she said?”

“All good things.”

“I’d hope so.” You joked.

“So she hasn’t said anything about me?” He asked.

“She didn’t really need to…” you looked away, feeling awkward. He was perplexed.

“Well, I mean, because, well, I already kinda knew a lot.” You avoided eye contact. He decided not to press you, sensing how uncomfortable you were. He moved closer and faced you.

Just then, your phone chimed.

Message from Clay: Where the hell are you???

Message to Clay: I’ll tell you later.

Message from Clay: As long as you’re safe x

Message to Clay: Of course Mr Protective.

You locked your phone and turned back to Alex.

“Sorry, it was just Clay.”

“Your brother? I love that guy.”

“Me too. Sometimes.” You made eye contact again, unable to break once you’d got a taste of their liquid blue.

“Y/N, you’re really awesome. I wish we’d hung out sooner.”

“Really?” You stared into his eyes.

My Heart - Paramore began to play. It was one of your favourites.

“Yeah, you’re different like, quirky, and really cool. But I said that already.” He laughed at himself. His laugh sent tingles down your spine. You weren’t quite sure how to respond.

“Can I ask you something?” He looked nervous.

“Go ahead.” You were apprehensive, it could be anything.

“Can I… Kiss you?” This was not what you’d been expecting. You were completely taken aback.

“Really??” Was your initial response, before you saw the sincerity in his eyes. “I mean, yes! Yes!” You laughed as you both leaned in ignited the kiss. It was a simple peck. You smiled. He cupped your face in his hands and went back for more. It was passionate and desperate, as though both of you were taking all you could. The song made everything all the better. You lay down on the grass, bringing him with you. After a while, he broke off.

“I know I only just met you properly, but it’s feels like I’ve known you forever.” He stroked your cheek.

“I think we can thank Hannah for that.” You made a mental note to thank her every day for the next year, before returning to kissing the hell out of Alex freaking Standall.

Looking for a good TV show?

Watch “Fringe”.

Here’s why:

- It’s finished. No waiting on episodes, they’re all there.
- It’s wrapped up after 5 seasons in a way that makes sense; it wasn’t cancelled.
- It’s science-fiction. Packed with mystery, unexplained occurrences and all the other stuff that make your curiosity perk up.
- It’s created by JJ Abrams, Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman, Bryan Burk and J.H. Wyman. Some of these you might know from making the Star Trek reboot or the sci-fi TV show “Almost Human”.
- Main character is a female. She’s an FBI agent. She isn’t sexualized. She isn’t masculine. She isn’t a cliché. She isn’t made fun of for being a female agent. She is actually very intelligent and very appreciated by her co-workers.
- Her boss is a male POC.
- Another female agent is a POC as well.
- John Noble. The ‘mad scientist’ of the show.
- Leonard Nimoy. Yep. He’s a recurring character.
- Sebastian Roché and Jared Harris. Also, Blair Brown.
- Parallel universe!
- The love stor(ies) that happen don’t reduce anyone to a love interest.
- David Bowie references. (You’ll spot them, trust me)
- Cases of the week + serialisation
- Have I mentioned the fact that the characters aren’t a cliché?
- Freaky stuff. You’ll love it. It might freak you out but you’ll love it.

…and many, many other things.

Just go watch it. It’s awesome.

500th-follower-special

So a few days back, I reached 500 followers … WHICH IS AWESOME! Thank you all for following me, I wish I could show gratitude to all of you. 

My 500th followed was @twistedrainbows8908 and they asked for a short fic with Murdoc comforting 2D before a concert! I tried my best and I really hope you like it <3

___________

“Where the hell is he?” Murdoc yelled as he walked back and forth in their backstage room. They were supposed to be on stage in thirty minutes and obviously that pain in the arse, blue haired boy was missing.

Russel looked unimpressed at the temper tantrum Murdoc was throwing, “Maybe on the toilet?”

“Toilet?!” Murdoc exclaimed loudly, throwing his arms in the air. Noodle snickered, mumbling something about the bassist in Japanese. In rage, the bassist walked towards the hall, “I’ll get that little shit out of there.”

“What’re you doing in here?” Murdoc barked at him as he held onto the doorway. 2D looked up at him, looking slightly paler than usually and it made Murdoc’s face soften as he knew what was up. He watched him hug his knees as he sat on the dirty bathroom floor, taking a deep breath.

“I just wanted to have some water by myself a-a-and suddenly I couldn’t breathe,” 2D whimpered, sniffling quietly. Murdoc chuckled at the fact that the boy hadn’t even considered that there was a ton of plastic bottles of water in their backstage room. He held out a hand for him.

“Come on, up you go, you absolute loon,” Murdoc said, already having lowered his voice, “Did you get your water?” 2D shook his head and pulled himself up, breathing quickly and Murdoc saw how obvious it was that his mind was racing.

It happened from time to time, 2D spacing out completely and panicking before shows. Usually it had happened to Noodle when she was little, mostly due to how young she was, but now it had become more and more frequent with Stu. There was no real reason behind it other than irrational fear of failing and singing horribly, which they both knew was impossible.

“Calm down,” Murdoc said, placing both his hands on 2D’s shoulders, looking him in the eye, “You’ll do fine. The girls will love you even if you sound like a dying cat.”

2D gave a weak chuckle, reaching to brush tears away, “Please don’t say that, it’ll bring bad luck or somefink.”

Murdoc grinned and squeezed his bony shoulders, “You know I’m right though, are you alright?”

2D took another few short breaths but winced, “Hurts my chest.”

“Breathe with me, can you do that, numbnut?” Murdoc pulled him to stand just in front of him. He placed a hand on his chest, “Deep breath, come on now.”

2D matched his breathing and Murdoc smiled proudly, “That’s a good lad. Feeling dizzy still?” He put a hand on his forehead.

“A little bit,” 2D sniffled again, breathing turning less ragged. He looked tired and leaned into him, Murdoc grabbing his lanky figure in his arms. He held him awkwardly for a moment but eventually relaxed.

“You need some water and some sweets before going out there,” he mumbled, rubbing his back, “Tell me when you’re ready to go. There’s no rush, we can arrive late like real divas.”

“Just give me a second, Muds.”

“As long as you need, Stu.”

Request: Kai pretends to be gay to get close to you

You tapped the end of your pen on your notebook, frustration colliding through your body as you couldn’t memorize the last paragraph you were given at college. All the mumbling and all the laughter  wasn’t helping either and you have had enough. You threw your pen on the ground and walked furiously out of the room, only to be found in the room with every single person possible and all eyes were on you, but there was one person that caught your eye and made you swallow hard and your heart skip a beat. You completely forgot why you left your room, the words completely vanishing from your brain as you were taken aback by the new an attractive guy sitting on the couch. 

‘Yes?’ Elena blurted out, making you snap out of your thoughts and look somewhere else but him, your fingers running nervously through your hair.

'Yeah, could you guys keep it, um, down, I’m trying to finish my assignment and I can’t think with all the yelling that’s going on here.’ You felt his eyes on you, his blue orbs piercing through your body, your muscles tensing from his deep gaze on you.

'Are you not even going to say hi to our new friend?’ Bonnie stated the question, a smile flashing across her face.

'Hi, I’m K-’

'Kai Parker or if you want to go by your full name, Malachai Parker. Yeah, I know you. Well, sort of, I know your name and where you’re from but- I’m- talking too much.’ You tapped your fingers on the wooden stair railing, feeling a smooth varnish under your fingertips. 'Um, I’m gonna go up to my room now, so, yeah. Oh and try to keep it down, please.’

'It was really nice meeting you!’ Kai shouted but only the sound of doors closing has echoed through the hallway. Everyone else went back to their conversations, while Kai kept looking at the stairs you were standing on just a minute ago. His plump lips curled up into a shy smile as a sigh escaped his lips. To him, you were the most beautiful girl he has ever seen and right at that moment, his plan has got him where he wanted but then at the same time, he was thinking of changing his mind because things may not turn out as he had planned.

Rainbow lights shone through the club that was filled with young people grinding on each other, their bodies moving in sync. Occassional smoke flying around the club, colorful lights making it look so mesmerizing. Your eyes traveled through the club, watching how people dance but your eyes landed on some special who’s eyes were already locked on you. You shifted in your seat at the bar and tucked your hair behind your ear and looked down, but you could still feel his eyes on you, making shivers run down your spine. Even a poorly lit up club couldn’t hide how beautiful his eyes were and how beautiful his smile was. You couldn’t help but smile too and close your eyes for just a second, his gorgeous facial features flashing before your eyes.

'It’s not gonna happen.’ Your body jerked at the sudden loud voice in your ear, making you turn your head to one side. Elena.

'What?’ You yelled, trying to be louder than the music blasting through the club. Strong bass thumping all the way in your chest, making you feel a little bit uncomfortable.

'You’re not his type.’ She answered making you turn towards him again, his smile somehow lighting up the whole club and even though you couldn’t hear his laugh, you could have easily place a bet that it sounded wonderfully. You didn’t really appreciate her for plunging you down to ground so quickly with her assumptions, but maybe she was right. Maybe she really did know him better than you had thought.

'Who is that anyway?’ The sound of your voice was filled with curiousity and the need to learn as much as possible about him, completely ignoring what what Elena has said about him just a minute ago. You didn’t care. You only wanted to learn who the beautiful, mysterious stranger was.

'Malachai Parker. The most infamous heretic in Mystic Falls.’

Even his name sounded too good, fitting his looks perfectly. The way he bit his lips every time he looked at you, feeling as if his blue eyes pierced harshly through your skin, your body burning at the thought of him standing close to you and staring at you with his perfect blue orbs or how his eyes traveled down your body every now and then, but your heart sank to your feet when a guy joined him and kissed him on his cheek.

'Why did you say that I’m not his type?’ You asked Elena and looked down at your feet, trying to ignore her gaze.

'Well, you do have something on your body that he likes a lot smaller and then, there’s also a body part that you don’t have, which he likes very much.’ She trailed off and threw a smirk at you, sipping her drink. You looked at her befuddled, not sure what she meant by that. You shook your head and widened your eyes, a chuckle leaving her lips when she realized you had no clue of what she was saying. She pointed down with her finger, your eyes following it all the way down to your crotch. Your mouth fell open, your hand quickly flying towards your lips to cover it.

'No way.’ She laughed at your reaction and nodded.

'Way.’

'But… he’s so hot and cute and oh god, don’t make me start on his smile. I just want to sit in front of him and watch him smiling all day long.’

'Aren’t all gay guys cute?’

'Yeah, I guess you’re right.’ You said disappointed, but your mind still find ir hard to believe in that story.

'There’s plenty of other guys here who would die to have a little piece of that cute ass of yours.’ She winked at you and pinched your arm, the way she chewed on her gum suddenly annoying the hell out of you.

'I think I’ll just, head home.’

'Oh c'mon, seriously?’

'Yes. I don’t feel like being here anymore.’

'Party breaker!’ She shouted, her hands on each side od her lips, her voice echoing through the club.

'That’s me!’

'Are you kidding me?!’ You slammed your fist on the floor in frustration, wincing at a thump pain in your hand.

'Take it easy on that floor, the Salvatore brothers will make you pay for it.’ Your eyes widened at a sudden male voice in your room, your eyes following it, traveling from his feet to his face.

'Malachai Parker. In my room. Cool.’ Your turned your head to your assignment, acting like you’re not interested.

'Just Kai.’

'Ok, just Kai.’ you repeated, mimicking his voice. 'So what brings you to my room just Kai?’ He chuckled at your words, his hands shoved into his pockets as he started moving around the room, touching everything he laid his hands on and it was starting to annoy you.

'I just wanted to see what have you been struggling with while we were javing fun downstairs.’

“College.’ You tapped your pen on your thigh, your eyes studying the lines in your book. 'It must’ve felt like heaven down there for you, right?’

His eyes were locked on your back, silence filling up the room for a few minutes.

'Um, why?’

'Damon, Stefan, good looking guys.’ You looked up at him, a smile peeking through on your lips.

'Oh the gay thing.’

'Which is awesome by the way, but you know, they’re not really into… that kinda stuff.’

'Yes, I know. I don’t actually have any intentions to try anything with them so, you don’t need to worry about that, sweetie.’

'As you wish.’ You lifted your arms up, gesturing in way of I give up and looked back down.

'So-’ he sat down next to you, your knees touching as you felt the warmth from his body radiating onto your body, your teeth dragging in your bottom lip and slightly biting on it. You knew you had to control yourself because you would end up hurt at the end, but being that close to him has made you feel some kinda way. A way you weren’t able to describe. 'Is there anything I can help you with?’

'Actually yes.’

'Anything.’

'Would you be a sweetie and bring me some of that delicious chocolate cake we have in the fridge?’ You trailed off and bit your lip, trying to not give in and start laughing.

'Seriously?’

'Please?’

'How can I say no to that cute face. Ok, I’ll be right back.’ He closed the door behind him and from the moment you were alone in your room, you realized this was about to be the hardest thing you had to do. Learn how to stop having an even bigger crush on him, but being near him wasn’t actually helping.

The longer you hung out with Kai, the bigger your crush on him was. You were noticing all the little things about him. How he ran his fingers through his hair, the way he tapped his thigh with his hand when he though something was funny and then started laughing or how blue his eyes looked whenever he looked at you. It was making you mad and sad at the same time, even made you frustrated and stopped you from paying full attention in college. It was messing with your mind and you knew you had to stop it before it was too late.

Another day passed by and you were in your room, with your stuff laying around the floor as you didn’t really care if your room was too messy or not. That was the least important thing, but concentrating on your assignment and hearing Kai’s voice suddenly echoing through the hallway wasn’t a good combination. Before he even had a chance to know on your bedroom door, your lips curled up into a smile and your heart skipped a beat.

'Come in!’ You shouted and quickly looked down at your notebook, trying your best not to look too excited, focusing on your assignment and when you heard him walking towards you, that smile somehow disappeared and was replaced with worry.

'What are you working on?’ He sat down on the floor next to you, his elbows resting on his thighs.

'Nothing.’

'Are you almost done?’

'Not really.’

'Do you want to watch a movie?’

'Not now.’

'Hey, I just brought a dead girl with me. Want to see it?’

'That’s interesting.’ You trailed off, your eyes locked on your notebook, your fingers tapping on the floor.

'Are you even listening to me?’ Frustration has suddenly appeared in his voice as he poked your shoulder with his finger, trying to get you to look at him. 'Hey!’

'What?!’ You snapped at him, his eyes widening at your sudden odd behaviour.

'What is up with you?’

'Nothing, ok? Nothing!’ You pulled yourself up off the floor and ran your fingers roughly through your hair, stopping at your neck.

'Well it obviously is something because you don’t even want to listen to me and don’t really care that I’m here.’

'You should probably just leave.’

'No, I’m not leaving until you tell me what’s bothering you?’ He said it while getting up, his hand resting on your arm.

'No.’

'Tell me!’ He raised his voice a little bit, your body jerking up for a second.

'You really want to know? I’m in love with you, but hey guess what, you don’t care because I’m not your type. So this conversation was absolutely for nothing and I’m going to stop embarrassing myself and go back to doing stuff for college and you can show yourself out.’ You threw yourself down on the floor again and wrapped your arms around your legs, burrying your head between your handd as you were trying to hide how embarrassed and flushed you were.

'You are my type.’ He trailed off and sat behind you, your back resting on his chest.

'What do you mean?’

'I’m not really gay. Did you really think that? I only said it so I can get close to you.' 

'What the hell, Kai?! Are you freaking kid-’ you wanted to turn around and face him, but he placed his hands on your shoulders, stopping you from doing so. He moved away the hair that was blocking your beautiful neck, revealing your smooth and sensitive skin.

'I could barely control myself.’ He placed a gentle kiss, the warmth of his lips sending shivers down your spine. 'I wanted to grab you and kiss you so many times, but I knew it wasn’t a good idea.’ His hand left your shoulder and started sliding down your chest, your stomach and stopping right where your shorts began. 'And that one day, when you wore that short, short dress, that has really tested my patience and my limits.’ He unbuttoned your shorts and started circling his fingers right under your belly button. 'Your legs looked so good. I was so close to pinning you up against the wall-’ he slipped his hand into your panties and pressed hard on your clit. 'And fucking you senselessly right there. I wanted to try how wet you would feel under my touch or-’ he leaned in and pressed his lips on your ear. 'How tight you’d feel wrapped around my cock.’

A moan escaped your mouth and your walls clenched at his words, your heart beating as if it would jumped out of your chest any second. He was turning you on just with his words, while his hand remained still in your panties. You rocked your hips forward into his hand, a grunt escaping his lips. He started moving his fingers in perfect figure eights, but right when you closed your eyes, his fingers disappeared.

'Kai’ it was more of a needy and frustrated whisper, your walls clenching at the memory of his fingers pressed against your sensitive bud. 'Please' 

'Please what?’ He whispered, a hint of amusement in his voice.

'Please touch me, Kai.’ A chuckle escaped his lips as he hooked his thumbs into your jeans and slowly pushed them down along with your panties, your bottom half completely naked. He spread your legs and placed his legs over yours so you couldn’t move, him getting a perfect access to the part of your body he has always wanted. 

'Your wish is my command.’ Those five words shouldn’t have such an effect on a human being, but considering who said them, it was even a bigger turn on for you. He slid his finger through your folds, right down to your opening, collecting your arousal with his finger and brought it up to his lips, licking it with his tongue. He let out a moan at the taste of you and chuckled before bringing his fingers down to your clit and started making perfect figure eights, making your head drop down on his shoulder. He watched how your lips parted everytime his actions got quicker and how you bit your lip everytime only the tip of his middle finger slipped into you and then disappeared, leaving you hungry for more. 

He pushed two fingers into you and circled them around, pressing them against your walls, feeling how they started clenching more and more, your orgasm slowly but sweetly approaching. He grabbed your chin with his hand and turned your head, just so he could get access to your lips, his lips crashing against yours and his tongue slipping into your mouth as your orgasm tore through your body, your walls clenching around his fingers and a moan slipping into Kai’s mouth. 

'It’s all about you tonight.’ He whispered and pulled his fingers out, your heart still beating faster than usual. He got up and took a few steps away from you and slowly started unbuttoning his jeans, pushing them and his briefs down, his cock springing up free and hard, a pulsating vein visible on the side. You swallowed hard at the sight of him, a quiet groan escaping your mouth. He took his shirt off with ease and walked towards you with a smirk on his face, his hand wrapped around his thick shaft, his thumb circling his tip.

'Can I?’ you asked so innocently and so quietly, almost as if you were afraid he would get mad if you did something that you thought was wrong. He shook his head and pointed at the bed, his upper teeth catching his bottom lip, biting on it slightly. 'Just a little bit.’ you practically begged and got on your knees, pushing his hand away and replaced it with your own as you placed a gentle kiss on his tip and licked him swiftly, just to get a taste of him. Right when you wanted to continue, he grabbed your chin gently to stop you and leaned down, your noses almost touching.

'I said, it’s all about you tonight.’ he picked you up with ease and threw you on the bed, your fingers tugging at your shirt before taking it off, revealing your braless boobs. 'Perfect.’ he muttered under his breath and crawled on top of you, wrapping your legs around his waist as he swiftly pulled you towards him, getting you on top. 'I want you like this.’ A thought deep inside your mind said fuck yes, loving the thought of being in control and having such power over Kai. He looked down and caught his cock with his hand and brought your hips closer as you slowly pushed down onto him, his head burrying in the crook of your neck at the perfect feeling of your tight walls being wrapped around his thick lenght. You threw your head back, your hands gripping tightly onto his shoulders as you slowly lifted your hips up and then went back down at a faster pace,feeling his every inch burrying deep inside you, stretching you out just in the way you have imagined.

'How- how could you- even think- that-’ you stopped moving your hips and burried him deep inside you, your eyes piercing through his blue ones. 'How could you even think that not doing this from the moment you saw me was a bad idea? You’re such an idiot.’ You trailed off, a laugh escaping his lips.

'I am an idiot, the biggest idiot on the planet, but I didn’t want you to get into something and then change your mind about me if you found out the whole truth about me before I even get a chance to tell you myself.' 

'Nothing could change my mind about you. The only thing I’m pissed about is how we’ve been missing out on this.’ you whispered and slowly moved your hips, his lips parting when he felt your walls clenching around him.

'We have plenty of time to catch up on this.’ he pushed you forward, your back hitting the mattress and your legs wrapping around his waist. You felt him pulling out and then going back in, hitting your spot harshly, almost a scream escaping your mouth. He picked up his pace with his every thrust, your breath hitching everytime he hit your spot, the sound of skin on skin and moans echoing through your bedroom. You got into the perfect rhythm with his hips, your nails digging into his back as you felt another orgasm slowly approaching as Kai’s thrusts became deeper and rougher. His hand slipped between your bodies, his fingers circling your clit as your orgasm tore through you, making your body shake with pleasure and only a clench of your walls was necessary to trigger Kai’s release, his head burrying in the crook of your neck as he rode out both, your and his orgasm. He gently pulled out and dropped down beside you, a droplet of sweat rolling down his forehead. 

'Holy fuck.’ He leaned down and cupped your face with his hands, his lips pressing on yours, giving you a sweet passionate kiss. You haven’t even recovered properly or caught your breath and the only thing that was circling in your mind is how badly you wanted to repeat this as soon as possible. The sound of Kai’s moans and how he fell apart because of how good you felt wrapped around him, made you want to see him like that again, but this time, you wanted to see him falling apart under your touch. You turned to your side and wrapped your leg around his leg as you slowly trailed your hand down his torso and placing it right on top of his lenght. His eyes widened, his hand immediately placing on top yours. 'What are you doing?’

'You’re crazy if you think we’re done for today.’ You winked at him as you got on your knees between his legs and showed him what he missed out on when he said that tonight was all about you.

Bedtime Story, Part I

   Nico huffed, sending his fringe into havoc. Well, more havoc; It couldn’t get much worse. Jason thought it would be fun to be his usual annoying self and ‘tousle’ it like a 'big bro.’

   "Yes, really, it will be so bad,“ Nico answered him, "No offense but I don’t want to watch all your sorry asses get drunk. Again.”

   "Well then join us! You can’t just go to Vegas - for a bachelor party - without getting drunk! That’s like, the whole point,“ Leo tried.

   Nico just rolled his eyes and pushed his hair back. He let his gaze wander as the rest of the crew continued to try and persuade him with strippers or some shit. To be fair, he thought, just about anyone would tune out their friends at the words Banana Hammock. As he looked for something to do, a few jostling pens in a cup holder caught his attention. But then he was bored of that, so he moved left.

   Unfortunately, to the left was Percy. Despite the fact that it was his party they were driving to, he wouldn’t let anyone else take the wheel. Even when Jason fought him on it. God, he was so loyal and kind. Nico breathed in a bit. Percy’s rough hands gripped the pleather, strong muscles bulging slightly as he turned. His shoulders were cut squarely, sharpening his jawline that much more. In the mirror, Nico could see his sea green eyes animate, brighter than ever. And his lips… a soft pink, like coral. But not nearly as rough. Or at least Nico guessed… watching them move… oh shit Percy was talking to him.

   ”-already most of the way there anyways.“

  Oh. Right. "Yeah…..” Nico said cluelessly, agreeing to whatever Percy was trying to get across. He was still staring. Nico looked away, hoping his cheeks weren’t flushed. He could practically feel Jason giving him pity eyes. Hypocrite. You’re the one who forced me to come. To Percy’s bachelor party, nonetheless.

   "How far?“ Frank asked. No doubt he was getting uncomfortable with the Priess’ low roof.

   "Three hours. Ish,” Percy affirmed. Leo cheered, and the rest of the boys joined him. Nico just groaned. Still? They had been driving all day. Sounds like too much opportunity to stare dramatically out of the window, if you asked him. But, back to it. Talking to the idiots only encouraged them, and staring at Percy wasn’t particularly good for his health.


***

   Suffering. That’s all driving with them was. If he had to hear another story about how awesome Piper and Calypso and Hazel and Annabeth were he might explode. All he had been hearing for the past three and a half hours was:

   "I wish I could be getting married!“

   "I wish I could be getting married!”

   "I wish I could be getting married!“

    "I’m so happy that I’m getting married!”

   It was enough to drive any man insane. But, they had made it to the hotel and back, and now they were standing outside a club, so Nico could abandon them as soon as they got in there. And that he did. Nico slipped away behind a slot machine at his first opportunity. What? He wasn’t there for Percy, he was there because Jason made him come, and he knew Jason wouldn’t want to babysit him all night. So, he headed for the bar. And not the fancy one up front. The one they hid in the back for loners like him. He wasn’t sure why he picked the bar. He could do literally anything in here. But he didn’t want to. Heartbreak will do that to you.

   Five pachinko machines and a hell of a lot of card tables later, Nico found it. Despite the bar’s solitude, and tiny frame, the club still bothered to put a couple layers of blue neon around it. To be honest, more than anything it was just sad. An old man sat at the far end of the bar table, making love to his tonic and gin. And that was it. Seven seats empty, if you didn’t count the bartender. Nico sat down with a huff, putting a hand in his hair as he waited. He hated his brain some days. And his heart. An engaged man, for fucks’ sake. Why?

   "May I get something for you?“

   Nico looked up to see wild silver hair and a blue vest and name tag.

   "Whiskey on the rye, please,” he squinted, “Bob.”

   "Coming right up, friend,“ he grinned. Nico pursed his lips in a brief smile, eyes widening with it. Friend, really? He had just met the guy. But, his drink was ready in less than a minute. Pretty good.

   "Thanks,” Nico said to him, tilting his drink to him before taking a swig.

   That night was long. There was a lot of drinks. Every once in a while someone would come and go from the bar. A man in a police uniform. Three young ladies with martinis the size of their heads. A sexy blonde. But Nico was there the whole night, gradually getting more bored and more drunk. At first, he wondered if the alcohol was working; he still felt pretty depressed. But as time dragged on he felt himself thinking, 'Fuck it’. And with that, he ordered three more shots of tequila, downed them and bid goodbye to his 'friend’ Bob. Surely his friends will have moved on to a different club. Maybe Nico could have some fun.

***

   Oh, Fuck. His head. Nico clutched it, groaning as he rolled over onto his back. Slowly, his eyes fluttered open against the daylight streaming in through the window. Instant pain. “Jesus,” he muttered, slapping his right hand over them. What even? How much did he drink? He breathed in through his nose. So far, he could tell he was in a hotel room. That’s good. Hopefully, it was the one his friends had booked them. If not…. how much cash did he have left? He turned his head to the left side of the bed, where he always kept his phone and wallet. Sure enough, through the cracks in his fingers, he could see said items. Also good. You do not understand true panic until you wake up with a hangover and missing phone.

   Nico groaned once more, reaching for the black leather bifold. He opened it quickly, expecting to see at least two hundred dollars there. Unfortunately, he was sorely disappointed.

   "What the fuck?“ he asked no one in particular.

   "You spent it on roulette, remember?” answered a husky voice. Nico whipped around, eyes wide, suddenly very aware of the fact he was only wearing boxers. He was met with a well-muscled, blue eyed blonde. Nico could tell the boy was well muscled because he was not wearing a shirt. In his bed.

   "What the fuck,“ he repeated, barely a whisper.

   They grinned. "Bet it all on double zero, said it was your lucky day.”

  “Who are you?” he whispered. The Blonde’s smile dropped, and his eyes fell. A soft chuckle escaped him. That was ironic, wasn’t it? Last night Nico said he would never forget his name.

   "Will. Will Solace.“ he mumbled, dragging his gaze back to Nico’s.

   "Like the doctor?”

   "Well, actually, I am the doctor.“

   Nico stared blankly for a few seconds. "No, you know what, no. That doesn’t matter. Get out of my bed,” he said finally, sitting up irritably.

    “Nico…” Will pleaded. He sounded so heartbroken.

   "Get out!“ Nico yelled, covering his face with both hands. Something cold touched his face.

   "No, Nico, you don’t understand…”

   Nico pulled his left hand away, eyes wide. Right next to his pinkie finger shined a small, gold band. “Oh,” he squeaked, terrified.

i need wynonna and nicole to get drunk together

like wynonna and nicole go out and get drunk together because they are bffs now (i dont make the rules thats just how it is) and theyre three sheets to the wind and like ofc theyre just bonding over how great they think waverly is again. because when they get drunk theyre just like such saps. nicole is always a sap, but she brings out that side of drunk wynonna. so theyre like in the corner of shorty’s (bob finally gave it back) watching waverly work (shes pointedly ignoring them because they are a problem for later. and because nicole is wearing a shirt that shows off her arms and waverly has to Work goddammit) and like just saying shit like “she is literal sunshine what did i do to deserve her” and “how does she keep her hair so soft?” and “one time waverly earp punched me in the face. it was awesome.” (nicole isnt entirely sure that this didnt actually happen to wynonna. mean girls reference aside wynonna rubs her jaw when she says it in a way that suggests more to that story)

and then wynonna just like turns to nicole and says “man if anyone here had to date waverly i wish it could be you. you two are such close friends like i know i could trust you two if you were dating” and nicole is torn between touched and vaguely bewildered because she thought wynonna Knew? but nicole is also Very Drunk and a confused puppy because instead of anything else she goes “wait im not dating waverly?????” and after a minute shes like “i gotta fix that” (shes already dating waverly but shes gotta be Sure now) so she staggers over to the bar while wynonna wolf whistles and encourages her loudly

and she leans right over to waverly and says the shittiest pick up line ever. like “you know im a cop, right?” “um. yes?” “so you better have a license.” “a license??” “yeah for those guns. wait, no. because youre driving me crazy. no wait yeah the guns thing. you better have a guns license cause im a police.” and like waverly is definitely humoring her. like so much. and eventually once she manages to stop giggling she asks nicole what shes doing and nicole is like “i was trying to get you to date me because wynonna said-” “we’re already dating, nicole” “damn im smooth they dont call me haught for nothing” “they call you haught because its your last name. now go back to your seat ive got to work” and then nicole pouts at the bar until waverly kisses her on the cheek and shoos her away (wynonna gives her a high-five when she gets back)

There was no reason for me to do this.
Why did I do this?

Rough Plot:
Michael used to date Rich.
In the beginning it was all okay, but then Rich got a squip in hopes of popularity and ended up killing himself in a fire.

Knowing that Jeremy also had a squip, and being under the impression that he and Rich were friends, Michael goes to him for comfort.

He laments being a bad boyfriend (‘I’m the reason he died, I wasn’t there for him’) and Jeremy, who secretely has a crush on him, comforts him by saying all the things 'Rich’ (aka he) loved about him, as well as making it seem as though Rich got a squip in order to talk more freely to Michael about how much he loved him instead of for popularity.)

If people like this AU, I might develop it further!!

~*~

(JEREMY)
He thought you were… Awesome

(MICHAEL)
He thought I was awesome?
My boyfriend…?

(JEREMY)
Definitely

(MICHAEL)
….How?

(JEREMY)
Well–

He said, there’s nothing like your style
Sort of unique, and retro, and rad

He said, he always wished he also had a hoodie with patches like that

And he knew you got that pacman tattoo one really drunk night out of town

And he noticed you could make a person smile when they wanted to just cry or frown

But he couldn’t find the words to say
When he got a squip, he’d pray:
'Oh god just help me to
Just help me talk to you
Just help me give a glance
All I need is a chance…

If I could tell him
Tell him what I really think
If I could tell him
He’s my ocean, cliff and brink

But we’re three classroom walls apart
And I don’t know how I would even start…
If I could tell him
If I could tell….’

(MICHAEL)
Did he say anything else?

(JEREMY)
A-about you?

(MICHAEL)
Nevermind, you wouldn’t even know, I just–

(JEREMY)
Nonono, he said, he said so many things I’m just trying to remember the best ones!!
Um…

He thought,
You were out of his league–
Er, ahem,
One day he should take you to a little leagues game as a pair

(MICHAEL)
He did!

(MICHAEL/JEREMY)
*awkward laughter*

(JEREMY)
And he wondered how you manage to laugh as if no one would ever point or stare

But he couldn’t find the words to say
When he got a squip, he’d pray:

If I could tell him
Tell him what I really think
If I could tell him
He’s my ocean, cliff and brink

(MICHAEL/JEREMY)
But we’re three classroom walls apart

(JEREMY)
And I don’t know how I would even start…
If I could tell him
If I could tell him

But what do you do when there’s this hole inside?

(MICHAEL)
He just didn’t know what to say…

(JEREMY)
And what do you do when the distance is too wide?

(MICHAEL)
I didn’t know any of it

(JEREMY)
And how do you say
I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you…

But we’re three classroom walls apart
And I don’t know how I would even start

If I could tell him…
If I could…

Dear Billy, Today I Saw Kong Skull Island

I’m still a bit ill and thus couldn’t risk eating popcorn, but it was so worth it.

Some assorted, mostly spoiler-free thoughts (full review to come after I get a chance to see it again):

  • Cinemasins and Cracked.com will hate this movie, as they always do
  • Like Godzilla (2014), I absolutely loved it even though it isn’t a flawless movie
  • Like Godzilla (2014), its few flaws will be harped on by the fandom so hard that I will become irrationally defensive of it as a result
  • John C. Reilly almost steals the show from Kong in the best possible way - he is one of the best human characters in any kaiju movie
  • This feels like a King Kong story told in the mold of a Godzilla story, and I love that
    • Not just in a “we’re setting up Godzilla vs. King Kong” way or a “Hollywood always copies the formula of a successful film dozens of times over until people are sick of it” way, either.  This movie actually feels very different from Godzilla (2014) while still feeling like they belong in the same universe.  Its approach to monsters and the man vs. nature concept is what particularly feels like a Godzilla thing more than a Kong thing - it’s the first movie to defend the native people and fauna of Skull Island instead of casting them unanimously as monsters
    • I wish the Skull Islanders had gotten more to do, but after marathoning all the previous Kong movies, I’m more than content with them barely getting to do anything so long as it means they aren’t being a horrible racist caricature of various indigenous people.  Especially after the 2005 movie, which, while a wonderful movie in several respects, is definitely the worst of the bunch when it comes to presenting the Skull Islanders as people.
  • The monster designs are ingenious and creative, making Skull Island once again feel mysterious and strange despite how commonplace CGI monsters are these days
  • The monster fights were fucking marvelous and and common.  I am sure people will complain there weren’t enough of them or that some were too short.
    • one of the shorter ones also had one of my favorite “monsters as animals with needs and motivations” moments in the movie that was really funny and endearing and I’m 100% certain people will hate it because it was such a “curbstomp” battle but fuck it sometimes you want to see *SPOILERS OMITTED*
  • By far the best part of the movie for me was the fact that four little kids were sitting behind me having the time of their lives watching an awesome monster movie.  During the end credits (like me and my family, they were waiting for the stinger) they chattered about how they hoped Mothra would be showing up in the Monsterverse next, so they were clearly Godzilla fans who knew they shit rather than complete newbies to the world of kaiju.  I wish I had a movie like this when I was their age.
  • The stinger is SO worth it.
Melancholy Post-PAX Emotions Are Kicking In...Thank You All

I think I get why everyone loves these conventions. As if it wasn’t reasonable enough already, I think I do now.

@markiplier: Yeah, we sadly didn’t meet; I was lucky to run into everyone else, just couldn’t stick around. Nevertheless, other people did, and I’m so happy for them. I wish you the absolute best, and I hope we truly meet in person one day. I hope you also enjoy mine and others’ gifts I brought with me; they were fun to get into a tangible project.

Tyler: You were the first of the content creators that I met, and really lifted my spirits to keep going through PAX with a smile, whatever the matter. You were beyond benevolent and friendly, and I cannot wait to meet you again. You’ve been through enough ups and downs, and it brought you to your first PAX East. Congratulations, and thank you so much. I sincerely hope YOU smile always.

Amy: As charismatic and sweet as you are beautiful and quirky, it was wonderful to have Sam, Smoke (beautiful peep who gave you the alien sunglasses), Laura, and myself meet you. Thank you for being so patient and kind, and my only wish was that you enjoyed yourself.

Kathryn: I know I didn’t meet you. Nevertheless, I still hoped I could. Still, it was enjoyable to hear from the few snippets of your trip here, and I hope we meet in the future. You seem like an absolute sweetheart, and I can’t wait to see what you do in the future.

@crankgameplays: Ethan, I can’t thank you enough for being so patient at the signing. It was great telling you how awesome you were, and I was so happy to look at the way you beamed when I told you about @northeast-artist98 and the art @okaythenart had gotten to me in the nick of time (I put other things for you in a gift box on Friday!). Thank you so much for everything, and I hope I meet you all again in the future.

@lordminion: Twice, both through an absolutely dumb luck, we had met. Nevertheless, you were patient and sweet, and responded with such an eloquent excitement. Thank you, and see you soon.

@foxtrot44: Molly, you’re an absolute gem to be around, and it was exciting to hear about how your wedding planning has been and your recent Boston endeavors (well wishes for Schii!). Thank you for being so caring and lovely, and I’m excited to see you and Wade happily move into the future together.

Bob: Yo! It’s the girl who should’ve rushed you with signing my life-size doll of you, and my portable shrine of photos of you! But, in all seriousness, you were amazing to even briefly chat with, and I can’t wait to see what you and Mandy do!

Mandy: I know we only waved to each other twice, but, you appeared so energetic and happy, I can’t help but hope everything did go well. Hugs from my airport gate, almost about to start traveling back home.

@wiishu: Through a coincidental seating, and making absolute sure I wasn’t breaking rules or bothering you (I checked with the enforcers at least five times), we met at the Are You a Robot? Panel. We might have not talked for as long as I hoped, but, to even say hello was wonderful. I sincerely wish you well, beautiful, and have a safe flight overseas.

@pixlpit: I said it once, and I will say it again: thank you. Not only are you a talented animator and editor, but…as odd as it sounds, you seem like you’re a badass at just about anything. Believe me, I really tried to find less exciting words, but…nothing else came to mind. You seem sardonic, but kind nonetheless, and I believe you have great things coming soon. Take care, and have fun back home.

@therealjacksepticeye: You were, BY PURE AND DUMB LUCK, the most coincidental person to even temporarily meet (I would say the guys at the later signing, but, we were somewhat ready for something to happen). I was struggling to find my own exit out of the panel before I bumped into you. I didn’t get a picture, and didn’t feel comfortable dragging you away from out of the panel exit (cannot, will not, honestly), just to say my own words. Nevertheless, to give you a hug, smile, and brief thank you for what you’ve done for others - and yes, even myself - before eagerly jumping out to let you leave, was still heartwarming. Have a safe flight overseas, and I hope you look forward into the bright future.

Mutuals from Tumblr and Twitter that I have met: Thank you. Seeing you all, face to face, was beyond endearing and eye-opening. I only wish you all fulfilled your dreams, and hope you keep all these memories of yours to heart. Love you all, and safe travels to your homes.


Everyone: PAX East is over, and my heart aches from the immediate swarm of nostalgia. But, it will pass, and all we can do now is look to the future. I hope you all live fulfilling lives, and I hope we meet someday.


Thank you, everyone, and remember in the most harmless way: When they’re gone…we’re next.


(Okay, I sneered at typing that last part, haha!)

Birthday boy.

Part 10 of ‘My son, Bringer of Storms.’



Jared took your advice. The next weekend he went home, and the boys spent time with his parents while he tried to work on things with Gen. Again. When he came back, you could tell it hadn’t gone as well as he had hoped it would. You had passed him in the lobby, and gave him a reassuring smile on your way out.

He was tired, and drained. Between work, and trying to make things work with everyone, he felt like he was running on empty. He came home after work that Wednesday to a note taped to his door that simply said “downstairs.”

With a groan, he headed down and knocked on your door. You answered, and a wonderful smell hit him. “Come on.” You smiled and led him in, letting him shut the door behind him.
