i'm trying to read this and it's not happening

Mari Christmas! (*^∀゚)ъ

When gift boxes start falling from the sky, everyone thinks it’s a Christmas miracle. The scores of solid objects blasting through the roofs of their homes moments later remind them that just maybe, they should be worrying about the laws of gravity as well. Some choose to hide from the barrage in their homes, while others decide to scramble outside to seek shelter elsewhere.

Bad choice. The townspeople scream and dive out of the way as a pink helicopter swoops low to the ground. Eight children are nearly decapitated. They’re being comforted by their parents after this traumatizing experience as the helicopter slows its descent and hovers in place.

The door to the aircraft slams open to reveal Ohara Mari wearing a red Santa suit and obviously fake white beard. She takes in everyone’s terrified faces with interest. Then, Mari winks, forms a circle with her thumb and forefinger, and whispers, “It’s joke!

No one says a word. Perhaps they’re in shock over the whole situation. Mari doesn’t pay them any mind and says, “Ciao~” before closing the door. The helicopter begins to pick up height, and the bystanders shake themselves out of their stupor so that they can quickly back away before they’re blown off their feet by the resulting winds. Mari’s helicopter veers sharply right and takes off, nearly colliding with a power line. The crowd watches the helicopter slowly fade from sight in stunned silence.

Thousands of homes are destroyed. The entire town is laid to waste, and children weep at the loss of their image of Santa Claus.

But it’s okay, because Dia is money. Mari will drop off the bill for the damages at the Kurosawa estate in the morning.

She chuckles to herself as her helicopter flies off into the night. With this, Dia will definitely regret telling the Ohara heiress that Santa wasn’t real when they were first years.

“If you still want me dead,” I said, “you might have to try a bit harder.”

Lucien loosed a breath. “That’s not what I intended.” I gave him a long look. “I wouldn’t shed any tears,” he amended. I knew it was true. - ACOTAR Chapter 18. 

There my body was, prostrate on the ground, my head snapped to one side at a horribly wrong angle. A flash of red hair in the crowd. Lucien.

Tears shone in Lucien’s remaining eye as he raised his hands and removed the fox mask. - ACOTAR Chapter 45 

*MUFFLED SCREAMING*

I mean not to be obvious but malec for the ship tag!

Ship: Malec

Who:

•makes the bed in the mornings: both. Depends on who was the last one to wake up. Or they do it as a team💪🏻😹

•has sole possession of the T.V. remote: Magnus, obviously he likes the best shows👌🏻

•stays up until 2am reading: both? I feel like both could do that.

•is the bigger cuddler: oohh I think at first would be Magnus but then Alec would rise as the cuddler monster tbh, he just want to hug Magnus and to be really affectionate with him once he is comfortable.

•does the laundry: Magnus would do it with magic but Alec would probably do it the mundane way (remember the scene where Jace jokes on episode 5 that if Alec out his jacket on something of the washing machine again)

•mows the lawn: Alec.

•is better at budgeting: Magnus, I guess

•instigates the sex (and who’s into the kinkier stuff): At first, Magnus. After Alec is more comfortable and knows a little more, both. Maybe Magnus more.

Send me a ship and I’ll tell you who in the ship.

so several people have sent me messages/asks/etc saying I should give the Shadowhunters/TMI books a try and I just want to address that real quick…

I will pretty much never read anything Cassandra Clare has written. She is a plagiarist, and has been since her fandom days, and I refuse to support her. The only reason I thought it was okay to watch Shadowhunters is because it actually keeps the rights from reverting to her so she can’t sell them again.

That being said, I mentioned this to my girlfriend, who actually did try to read them, and she insisted that I post her thoughts on the matter (and now I have to, because, you know, girlfriend rights).

Keep reading

When you’ve read so much fanfiction within a short period of time that you’re trying to recall scenes and you’re not sure if it actually happened or you just read it, and re-telling scenes to your friends who watch the show and they’re like ???? as you recall fic not the show.

>>  “This is Rick,” Eoin was saying.
     Kieren tore his eyes from the guy, turning towards Eoin and trying to distract himself. “Where’s Seth?”
     He barely heard the answer. His eyes were on Rick again. The guy had stepped into his room, and towards Kieren, offering his hand.
     “Hey,” Rick greeted, despite the formality of his action. “Kieren, yeah?”
     Before Kieren properly caught up to what was happening, Rick’s firm hold was gone, and he was greeting Philip the same way. <<
