i'm very happy with it and i think it was worth the wait

Jupiter; My Love!

Jupiter; my love! Jupiter is the planet of luck, abstract thinking, vision, & expansion. Jupiter is our ideology. Jupiter manifesting itself in the signs is magic in and of itself. Thank your lucky stars for Jupiter.

Jupiter in Aries: They love doing things that make them or the people around them feel inspired. They believe in positivity and the influence it has on them and those around them. They love to be empowered and a little friendly competition is something they’re always up for.

Jupiter in Taurus: They invest and throw themselves into things they deem ‘worthy’. They are patient and wait for the best; and they have a good eye for it. They know what is best for them and are notorious for being good with money. When they use their resources to benefit themselves and others is when they can achieve true happiness.

Jupiter in Gemini: These natives can be described in one word- ingenious. These people, when using their wit and funny nature, can be some of the most enjoyable to be around. They thrive in fast paced environments and are open minded learners. This placement can make for great lawyers and jobs of the sort due to their ability to see all sides of an argument.

Jupiter in Cancer: These natives attract good luck and happiness when they are open and giving to the people around them. When they are sympathetic and charitable they are at their best. They set goals and are very ambitious; they can get the farthest in their goals when they trust their gut instincts/intuition.

Jupiter in Leo: These people are big-hearted and generous; but they still have a need to be filled with self worth. They mostly leave this at the hands of others, but also have a certain self love they encompass. These natives are optimistic, trustworthy, and sincere.

Jupiter in Virgo: These people are realists and may not always feel very lucky. These natives are orderly, practical, and technical- qualities they value. They don’t like to take risks or branch out often but treasure the results of their hard work. They feel best when they are productive and know they are accomplishing something important.

Jupiter in Libra: These natives have a natural graciousness to them that others may eat right up. They find they are the happiest and at their best when they treat everyone as equals. This is a great placement for politicians, judges, or any other jobs in which the native can make sure everyone is being treated fairly.  

Jupiter in Scorpio: These people feel their best when they give their all to a project or commitment. These natives are known for their ability to see ‘deeper’; they are interested in the taboo and everything that has a deeper meaning- especially the study of people.

Jupiter in Sagittarius: These people have a natural enthusiasm. They are their happiest when they practice tolerance and generosity. They are philosophical humans with strong ideals, morals, and beliefs. These people have a tendency to be inspirational beings with a strong interest in traveling and teaching.

Jupiter in Capricorn: These natives put lots of emphasis on status and positions. They value the long term effects on their actions- legacies, long-term achievements, and where they manifested themselves. They practice an optimism that’s hard to understand; it’s a type of realistic  optimism. They know what works for them and what doesn’t. They live by what works for them- what they will be the happiest doing.

Jupiter in Aquarius: These natives are impartial and cooperative. They are willing to try new things which can give them an innovative edge. They are known to be eccentric geniuses who step out of comfort zones most people keep themselves wrapped in.

Jupiter in Pisces: These people have a desire that cannot be filled unless they are helping the less fortunate than themselves. They are empathetic and charitable. They are motivated by a universal vision of a good life for everyone. Their compassion will ultimately reward them.

The Bet- A Cassian/Azriel/Mor Fic

….Listen my dudes, idk what to tell you, I’ve never written this pairing before, never really felt that inclined to either… But they wanted to bang…so I let them. Bless my dearest, @pterodactylichexameter for betaing!! 

Title: The Bet

Summary: Modern AU, established relationship. Cassian, Az and Mor have somewhere to be and while the boys are up their sleeping beauty is nowhere to be found. Az comes with a novel way of getting her out of bed….NSFW. Sin. Much sin ahead. You’ve been warned. 

Teaser: Az’s dejected form isn’t what leaves their bedroom however. Instead, Cassian freezes in the act of raising his mug to his lips for a drink when he hears a soft, feminine moan escape. He waits for all of a second before the mug and half-eaten breakfast are abandoned and he wanders down the corridor to investigate.

Link: AO3 

Azriel doesn’t look up from the piece of toast he’s slowly, precisely, buttering as he hears the unmistakeable sounds of Cassian sloping into the room behind him. His boyfriend doesn’t stop walking until he crashes, albeit gently, into Az’s back, jolting him against the counter. His thick, muscled arms slide easily around his waist and he nuzzles softly at his neck, still slightly damp from the shower.

“Mm, you smell like Mor,” is Cassian’s dreamy idea of a mumbled morning greeting.  

Az comes as close to grimacing that he ever does at that. “I think I used her shampoo this morning,” he confesses drily, now tipping coffee into the mug in front of him. Cassian lets out a gasp of mock horror at this and withdraws from him as though tainted. He claps him playfully on the shoulder, “Good luck,” is all he says before he heaves himself up onto the worktop, his heels knocking gently against the cupboard door.  

A soft smile traces Az’s lips as he slides the coffee towards Cassian who raises the mug in a grateful salute after grabbing it before taking a long draught. “I don’t think I have to worry about it,” he says evenly, melting out of the way to let Cassian at the toaster and hob, “She won’t be coherent enough to notice for a while yet.

Cassian glances over Azriel’s head towards the door of their bedroom, slightly ajar, revealing the darkness within, then he snorts. “It looks like the lair of some fell beast,” he observes, casually swiping a piece of Az’s buttered toast and transferring it to his mouth. Az huffs but doesn’t protest, considering it a fair trade for the half a pack of bacon Cassian has just slapped into a pan.  

Az makes a business of checking his watch, “At this time of the morning you’re not far wrong,” he murmurs, ambling to the fridge and pulling out eggs which he lays on the counter within easy reach of Cassian’s broad, deft hands.

Cass snorts at that assessment, barely even looking at what he’s doing as he cracks the eggs and transfers them to a bowl to whisk them up, “How long do we have before we need to leave?” he asks, eyebrow raised.

“A few hours yet,” Az replies mildly, taking a small sip of his own coffee, “But she should get up now.”

Cassian snorts again, “You expect her to manage that without some sort of encouragement?” he demands, “Waking Mor up at this time is like waking the dead, we’d have an easier time finding a new girlfriend at the graveyard.”  

Az just smiles at that, watching his boyfriend work, “Mm, I’m quite fond of this one, as it happens,” he murmurs quietly.

He’s fully aware that he already has a plan to deal with their…situation. Cassian never eats his eggs scrambled this way, and his bacon is always half raw. Sure enough, a few moments later, tipping the eggs into a frying pan, Cass grins, “Don’t you worry, sweetheart,” he says affectionately, leaning over and kissing Az on the cheek even as he rolls his eyes at the petname, ”I have just the thing. She’ll be up in a minute, all bright eyed and bushy tailed.”

 It’s Az’s turn to snort at that. Of the three of them, Cass is the one most likely to tend towards optimism but even by his standards that’s stretching the bounds of belief. “Okay fine, she’ll be conscious,” he amends irritably before waggling a spatula threateningly in Az’s direction, “you get to take over from there.”

“If you actually manage to get her up I’ll take over from there,” he promises faithfully, taking another idle sip of his coffee.  

“Ha,” Cass grins, “Just you wait, Az, she can never resist my cooking. Ever.” He reaches past him and swipes the large ‘princess’ mug out of the cupboard, filling it with coffee from the pot before dumping in a small mountain of sugar and half of their milk reserves into it with his customary grimace that anyone would dare besmirch the good name of coffee the way that Mor does.

Azriel just hums as Cassian starts to load Mor’s breakfast onto a tray, leaning against the worktop, saying nothing. As he starts to leave the room however, Mor’s breakfast arranged in the shape of a smiley face with tomato eyes, a bacon mouth, scrambled egg hair and a spikey toast hat however, Az dips down and presses a soft kiss to his lips, “Good luck,” he murmurs.

Cassian waves an airy hand, “Oh ye of little faith!” he huffs irritably as he sets off in the direction of their bedroom.  

Azriel waits patiently and he and his lack of faith are rewarded by a Cassian stomping out of the room five minutes later, caught somewhere between astonishment and dejection, resolutely munching a piece of Mor’s toast. “Unbelievable,” he grumbles, looking sincerely crestfallen. “She’s made of stone, Az, we’re dating a statute, I hope you know that.”

Az just smiles as Cassian helps himself to some of Mor’s eggs, clearly lamenting their wasteful scrambling. “That was never going to work,” he says smoothly.

Cassian lets out a good natured growl, now eating a piece of Mor’s bacon with his fingers. He brandishes it at Az, “I bet you a tenner you can’t get her out of bed before I can.”

Cass watches as Azriel considers this, can practically hear the cogs turning in that mysterious, shadowed brain of his. Finally, with a decisive little nod, he sets down his piece of toast and says, “Deal,” before padding towards their bedroom.  

Blinking, slightly startled by this sudden turn of events he calls after him, “On this try mind you!” Az just vaguely nods his agreement, gently pushing open the door at the end of the corridor. What a well meaning idiot, Cassian muses with a shake of the head, happily stuffing one of Mor’s tomatoes into his mouth. She doesn’t know what she’s missing, this breakfast was up to his finest high standards, but Az is taking part in a truly hopeless mission. Fire-breathing dragons would have been easier and safer to approach than their Morrigan this morning.

Cassian waits, shovelling down more of Mor’s bacon with what Az would probably consider indecent enthusiasm. Mor would understand though, he has to give this breakfast a proper funeral, worthy of her approval. He expects to see Az slinking back to him, defeated, rummaging irritably in his jeans for his wallet to offer him the spoils of his victory. He freezes, another piece of toast halfway to his mouth, loaded with scrambled eggs and dread – if Azriel fails in this task it’ll be his turn to rouse Mor again…He contemplates this for a few seconds then shovels the toast and egg into his mouth, deciding it’ll be worth it. His boyfriend had been so achingly sure of himself and while Cass doesn’t think that Az’s ego needs to be deflated any more than it already is, on the other hand he really does like the idea of him coughing up the bet money.  

Cassian waits some more, still devouring Mor’s breakfast, feeling a slight pang of worry for Az. In her current state, well aimed pillows might just be lethal, and he’s quite fond of Az’s pretty face…He decides to give it a few more minutes before launching an emergency rescue operation. Any second now he’s going to have to kiss that small frown from his beautiful face, console him even as he delightedly accepts his winnings.  

Az’s dejected form isn’t what leaves their bedroom however. Instead, Cassian freezes in the act of raising his mug to his lips for a drink when he hears a soft, feminine moan escape. He waits for all of a second before the mug and half-eaten breakfast are abandoned and he wanders down the corridor to investigate.

Gently pushing open the door, decorated with Az’s careful, neat lettering of their names (Cassian’s idea) and the small stick figures in the top left corner, (a drunken Mor’s contribution) he pauses to properly drink in the scene. Azriel is kneeling on the floor at the side of their bed, Mor’s long, golden legs hooked over his shoulders, his head buried between them. Mor is arching in pleasure, another faint moan spilling from her open lips as her body bows from the bed. Her hands fist the crisp white sheets, clutching at them as Az teases her with his tongue.

I Think I'm In Love (Shigezane x MC)

This has absolutely nothing to do with Forbidden Lovers ~ It’s it’s own thing I guess XD

Um, yeah, just had this idea randomly, hope you guys enjoy it XD


~ * ~


Her soft, brown hair trickled over her shoulder like a gentle waterfall, the slight bump as it fell over her breast and pooled next to her slender hips. The early morning sunlight lit up her face, exaggerating and softening her features in all the right places.

Angelic.

There truly wasn’t any other words to describe her.

With her sitting a few feet away from him it was difficult to focus on the report he was supposed to be writing. Sneaking glances out of the corner of his eye, he really couldn’t help the dorky smile on his face.

Definitely a welcomed distraction.

The book in her hand dangled on her finger tips, unread, her eyes had a far away look as she gazed out the open door.

“Everything alright, Doll?” He finally asked when a little sigh left her cherry colored lips.

“Yes … Maybe …” Her mumbling answer did nothing to ease his concern.

“Wanna talk about it? I’m all ears.”

A grunt was her only response as she opened her book once more, giving her full and undivided attention.

Something was definitely off.

He wanted to press more, find her enchanting smile. The twinkle in her eyes when she laughed could outshine any star in the sky. Her joy was his medicine. Her sorrow was his death.

But there was no coaxing her or she would crawl deeper into her shell. Only time would allow her to open up to him, when, if, she was ready.

The brush felt incredibly heavy in his hand, the ink a hundred times darker, the page much duller.

Busy pouting over over sheet of paper, he was completely oblivious to her stare.

Her pretty eyes peeking at him from under thick, dark lashes. They quickly when back to her book.

For a moment there was only the sound of page turning and a brush on paper.

“I think I’m in love-”

CRACK!

Shigezane had a rather difficult time processing what had just come out of her pretty little mouth. The splintered peices of the brush fell out of his hand.

“Uh, hm, really.” Something thick was lodged in his throat making his voice sound scratchy and horce. When did it get so hot in here?

“He must be quite a guy to have cought your eye.” A smile had never hurt so much.

Damn him.

Damn his family.

Hell, damn his cow.

He stiffly brushed the broken peices of the bush to the side.

“He is.” A bashfuly glow lit her cheeks, her eyes stayed glued to her hands. That smile he loved, he now grudgingly realised, was for someone else.

“I just can’t stop thinking about him.” The girlish giggle made him smile, even if he could feel it chipping away at his heart.

“Well, who’s the lucky chap, maybe I know him?”

He didn’t want to know.

He did want to know.

Damn.

“You do. Your very close to him.” She still hadn’t met his eyes.

Probably for the best. He wasn’t sure how well he was hiding his conflict right now.

“Who?”

He did his best to sound intrigued in meeting him, but all he could think about was giving him a good fist to the face.

She began tracing patterns on the floor, a dreamy look in her eyes.

What he’d give to be able to make a girl look like that. Preferably her.

“He’s just so captivating to watch, especially when he spars. He has a great build.” She covered her face, her blush taking on a much redder tone.

Shigezane subconsciously felt his biceps flex. He’d never been one to be jealous over another man being more well built than him, but he sure as hell was now.

“He’s so sweet to me too. He calls me a cute name, and it just makes me feel all fluttery inside.”

He didn’t know what it was about that but it left a nasty tast on his tongue. Curiosity and the need to hit something began to burn stronger.

“It’s Kojuro, isn’t it?”

“What? No. He’s far to old for me.” She giggled. “He’s my age.”

Thank God.

He wasn’t sure what he would have done if she had said yes.

“Actually, he’s quite close to Lord Masamune, he’s related to him actually.”

This bastard … Was related to him!?

Fate was cruel indeed.

“He lives here?”

“No, but he visits alot.” She was twirling a strand of hair on her finger. “He has a wonderful sense of humor.”

“I bet he dose.” It came out much harsher than he had ment to, but with her high spirits she hardly noticed.

“So are you gonna tell me who he is?”

He just needed to know.

“I’m sure you can guess by now, Shigezane.” She stood up, hands clasped behind her she stepped outside. “When you do, could you tell him I’m waiting in the garden, please?” She smiled sweetly over her shoulder.

“Of course.” It hurt to swallow.

Shigezane stared at the wall as he listened to her footsteps fade.

Of course.

What else could he have said?

No, because, I think I’m in love too … ?

He rested his forhead aganst the table, his arms encircling around him. A moment … Just for a moment, he wanted to pretend that conversation did not just happen.

She’s waiting for him.

And he was supposed to go calmly tell her lover that.

And he would. He would do anything for her.

Of course he’d do as she asked … Then beat the shit out if him in a sparing match.

The thought healed a little of his broken heart.

The question was, who was he going to beat the shit out of?

He was here age, which also ment, his age. He was probably some inexperienced dolt who didn’t know how to treat a woman right.

There were many young men his age that could be her possible lover, but none of them where related to Masamune, or him for that matter.

Honestly, the only person who even fit her description was him.

His rested his head on his arm, pushing around the brush peices. He was happy for her, he really was. She was a smart girl, so whom ever she has set her heart on must have been a man worth her time. He only hoped that this wouldn’t end with he-

Wait.

His hand stopped as his mind back tracked.

The only person who fit that description … Was him.

Her age.

Related to Lord Masamune.

Cute nickname.

Dosent live in the castle but visits regularly-

His feet slide on the veranda as he shot out. Briefly apologizing to the maid he had terrified he swiftly hops the railing.

Shigezane didn’t think he’d ever ran that fast in his life.

OK THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A FUNNY FIC BUT MY FINGERS JUST WENT AND TURNED IT REAL ANGSTY

The next one I post with have zero angst. Just fluff and maybe some sexy action 😉

@shingenelena @nikkihime (it won’t let me tag u 😢) @chictheatre @small-and-nerdy @liebengirl @suzunesays @thegreenfairy25 @frywen-babbles @myotomespace @tallbutshort9 @gemsibob @carolithe (won’t let me tag u either) @i-dont-look-good-i-look-great @you-mass-effect-my-dragon-age

anonymous asked:

(new fan here) do Bastille have any love songs? I've noticed most songs on the first album are more about like, dark themes and on WW they're about the media and stuff. I'm not complaining, I actually find it refreshing to know a band is writing songs about something other than what has become the main theme in the music industry, I just wanted to know. (if there are any, which ones?)

Bastille are definitely not big on the love songs. Dan always mentions how he finds it more interesting to write about the themes and things he finds interesting and how he is impacted by the movies and books he reads as well as the world around us. I am also a big fan of this, because it’s just very interesting to hear things in different perspectives and have a change of mind. But I do think you might be missing that the songs have several different themes in them and they can include love. It can be hard to tell since we’re so used to seeing love as the main and only theme, but Dan is a very creative and original songwriter who is capable in working more than one theme into a song. I feel like that’s part of what makes Bastille so good. The songs make you think and connect deeper than other songs, because they touch on so many things that several people feel. 

That being said the songs I would consider as love songs are:

  • Durban Skies from All This Bad Blood - It’s a song in the perspective of Dan hearing about the story of how his parents fell in love and got married. I think that’s really cute and sweet. 
  • Torn Apart from their mixtape VS. (OPH3) - It’s a sad love song about being torn from the person you love and the stripped back version is stunningly beautiful. You can find it here (x)
  • The Anchor from Wild World - It’s about the one person who grounds you in a world you feel like you can’t get a grip on. I know that the feelings described in this song doesn’t necessarily have to be about s/o and can be about a family member, friend, etc. I don’t see that as meaning it’s not love. I’m sure whoever you feel is your “anchor” you love in some way. Anyone who is able to do that feels like a comfort and safety and that to me is love. 
  • Warmth from Wild World - “It’s about how the world is pretty fucked up in general, but how people and relationships are great and can kind of be like the solace in that.” This a quote from Dan on what the album was about, and so it’s no surprise why this song is the crux of the album. I feel it truly covers exactly what he said, and that when he’s talking about people and relationships he’s again referring to someone that you trust and makes you feel warm and happy inside, even when the world around you is terrible. I think that’s my favorite form of love. 
  • Glory from Wild World - This song is so beautiful for so many reasons. It’s again one of those songs that has more than one theme. One of those themes is definitely love to me, because a lot of times we can feel hopeless “way down here upon the ground”, especially when you’re “looking up for heaven” just waiting for something to happen or for things to be okay but with no sign from anyone that it will. That’s when you need your best friend, family member, or significant other to be there to reassure you and “put your hand” in theirs and let you know things will be okay, because heaven sure as hell ain’t talk right now.
  • Fake It from Wild World - To me this song is another sad love song, because it sounds like it’s about a deteriorating relationship. However, there are so many sentiments of still being in love with the person despite the mistakes and problems that may have happened. My favourite sentiment would be “I wanna waste all my time with you,” because I see time as something so precious so if I’m willing and to devote it on someone they must be pretty special. 

I feel like that covers all of Bastille’s official songs, but I think it’s worth noting that Bastille also makes fantastic covers of love songs, and like real love songs that are just about love. Although they are usualy mashed up with a few other songs so the meaning changes a little I guess, but the primary sentiment is still there for sure. I think the most sterotypical romantic love song cover they did is “I Don’t Want a Miss Thing” which you can listen to here (x). There’s also this mashup of “Locked Out of Heaven” and “Angels” and a few others, which you can listen to here (x).  Thanks so much for your question, it was a lot of fun to answer. Welcome to the fandom and please let us know if you have anymore questions! I really hoped this helped. Okay I’m done rambling now.

Garrett and Marian - Legacy Banters
  • Marian: Well... not quite how I imagined this family reunion going. I was envisioning more hugs and maybe some wine over dinner. Not attempted assassinations
  • Carver: Really? You think this is so abnormal for our family?
  • Marian: Well you got me there
  • ---
  • Bethany: What could our father have to do with this mess? The Carta have had more than enough time to try and find us
  • Garrett: I imagine that having two Champions of Kirkwall with the last name Hawke may have tipped them off
  • Bethany: But it's been three years since you and sis defeated the Arishok. Why wait that long?
  • Marian: Well I don't know about you, but if I was going to go after the people who killed an Arishok then I'd probably want to make a little time for planning, wouldn't you?
  • Carver: Do these morons strike you as the sensible type?
  • Marian: Two points in one day Carver? Don't tell me the Templars are actually drilling some wit into that skull of yours
  • Carver: *laughs* At least /my/ wit makes a point, dear sister
  • Bethany: Ooh, that had to hurt
  • Garrett: Do you need some healing for that one, Marian?
  • Marian: Oh shove off, all of you
  • ---
  • Garrett: And we're back in the Deep Roads
  • Marian: Oh it's not that bad. I mean... Look at all the... Ugh, no, you're right this is terrible. Let's all promise never to go to the Deep Roads after this. Three times is enough
  • Garrett: Three times? When was the second?
  • Marian: Um... well...
  • Carver and Bethany: *sing song voices* Somebody's in trouble
  • ---
  • Bethany: Varric wrote to me the other day
  • Garrett: Telling another of his stories, I bet. Was it the one about the high dragon, because that didn't really-
  • Bethany: No. He was giving me an update. On you, actually. I was... worried, so I wrote to him and asked
  • Garrett: I'm fine Beth. Really
  • Bethany: No you're not. Not yet. But I know you, and if anyone can get past it, you can
  • Garrett: Thank you
  • ---
  • Carver: You might want to be watch yourself, Garrett
  • Garrett: How come?
  • Carver: Ever since you sided with Orsino the other day, there's been... Rumours. Meredith isn't happy with you, and it's only because she allows it that you're still free
  • Garrett: So is she going to have me dragged to the Circle, or is she getting the Brand ready now?
  • Fenris: Don't say that
  • Carver: I would never let it get that far. But I thought I'd warn you, just in case you were thinking about making her mad
  • Garrett: I appreciate you telling me Carver. Don't worry. I'll be careful
  • ---
  • *after completing Malcolm's Will*
  • Marian: So... the stonework down here is... lovely, isn't it?
  • Carver: Not now, Mary
  • Marian: I was only... Alright
  • ---
  • Marian: Are you okay, Gary?
  • Garrett: I'm fine... Just...
  • Marian: He loved you. And Bethany. He'd be so proud of you
  • Garrett: You sound so sure of that
  • Marian: Of course I am. Because it's true. And don't let that nasty shit in your head tell you otherwise - it's a liar, remember
  • Garrett: *chuckles* Alright
  • Bethany: Be careful sister, people might think you've got a heart after all
  • Marian: *dramatically* Oh no! *clutches chest* I think... I think I'm getting feelings! Quick, someone beat them out of me!
  • Carver: *laughs* You be careful what you wish for sister
  • Isabela: I'd rather ride them out of you
  • Garrett: Ah, and there's the dirty line. I was starting to worry something was wrong Bela
  • Isabela: And you're as sweet as ever, Garrett
  • ---
  • Varric: Twenty silvers, that's my final offer. Take it or leave it Elf
  • Marian: What are you betting on, and why am I getting left out of it?
  • Varric: You want in? We're betting on what it'll take to get Junior and Waffles to hug
  • Garrett: *groans* You're not calling me 'Waffles' again, are you?
  • Varric: I have to. Every time I say 'Hawke' all four of you turn around. I'm being considerate
  • Carver: I bet there's /someone/ here who'd like to see him covered in syrup
  • Garrett: Carver!
  • Fenris: *embarrassed noises*
  • Isabela: Ooh, new friend-fiction idea!
  • Garrett: Don't you even dare!
  • Isabela: Too late, already dared. Can we make camp? I need to make notes
  • ---
  • Varric: Hey, Rivaini, I'm expecting royalties if that friend-fiction of yours gets published
  • Carver: When you didn't even come up with it?
  • Varric: You wouldn't have brought up syrup if I didn't call him Waffles
  • Garrett: Maker save me...
  • Bethany: And me...
  • Marian: Usually I like dirty things... But this is too far, even for me
  • Isabela: Are you saying you wouldn't like it if /I/ were covered in syrup?
  • Marian: Oh I'm sorry. I didn't realise you were my very hairy twin brother, Bela
  • Isabela: Well when you put it that way...
  • ---
  • Isabela: I always thought we were the loud ones, you know
  • Fenris: What?
  • Marian: I know right. Maybe they're just less shy about it now
  • Garrett: Do I want to know?
  • Isabela: You already know. Or did you deafen yourself?
  • Marian: To think, they don't need us shouting encouragement through the wall anymore. I'm so proud
  • Isabela: Our boys are growing up so fast. Maybe next they'll master foreplay
  • Carver: Oh Maker, I do not want to hear this
  • Bethany: Neither do I
  • Garrett: *loudly* And I would be very happy if we could stop talking about this. Right now
  • Isabela: Yeah, see. That kind of loud
  • Fenris: *deadpan* If you're so fascinated by Garrett being loud, then you must not be doing a very good job at making Marian scream, Isabela
  • Marian: Oooooooo
  • Isabela: Oh, you snarky little shit
  • Bethany: *loudly* If we could stop discussing my older brother's and sister's sex lives, I would appreciate it
  • Carver: *loudly* Oh look, more darkspawn. Let's kill them so we can stop talking about this
  • ---
  • Marian: So our choices are the nice, Tainted madman, or the mage who wants to let a darkspawn magister out of his hole in the ground? Why can we never make nice decisions, like what kind of wine to have with dinner?
  • Fenris: I agree. It is the only decision worth making
  • Marian: When you're not throwing it at the walls, I assume?
  • Fenris: That was six years ago
  • Marian: And you never offered me a glass
  • Fenris: You are recycling jokes now? Has the great Marian Hawke's wit finally lost it's edge?
  • Marian: Ooh, you are just asking for it now
  • ---
  • Varric: You okay Garrett? You've been a bit quiet since-
  • Garrett: I'm fine Varric. There's more important things to be worried about right now
  • Varric: It's not easy to realise that someone you looked up to wasn't quite what you imagined. You ever need to talk, you know where my suite is
  • ---
  • Isabela: So... is no one going to bring up the fact that Varric called Garrett by his name earlier?
  • Varric: What are you talking about Rivaini? Waffles and I were just having a friendly chat
  • Isabela: Don't bullshit me. You called him Garrett. I heard you
  • Varric: That doesn't sound like me, Rivaini
  • Marian: He called you by your name when Velasco carted you off to Castillon
  • Isabela: What?! No fair, I didn't get to hear!
  • ---
  • Bethany: Are you sure about this, brother?
  • Garrett: It has to be done
  • Bethany: I could do it. I am a Hawke after all, and a mage. You don't need to-
  • Garrett: No, Bethany
  • Bethany: But-!
  • Garrett: Bethy, if I let you use blood magic, I'd never be able to live with myself
  • Bethany: And if you do it, will you be able to live with it?
  • Garrett: I'd rather it be me than you
  • ---
  • Varric: If he pulls a dragon out of his ass, I'm leaving!
  • Marian: Oh great, and now he's almost certain to pull a dragon out of his arse! Way to go Varric
  • ---
  • Bethany: Here, you didn't get a chance to close that wound earlier
  • Garrett: Thank you
  • Fenris: I just hope it was worth it
  • Marian: Well we /did/ just kill a darkspawn magister. I can't wait to hear how Varric tells this one
  • Varric: Well I doubt I'll have to exaggerate a damn thing, considering how weird this shit is
  • Fenris: That isn't what I meant...
  • Garrett: I'd have avoided it if I could, but someone had to. And if it meant sparing my little sister from that...
  • Fenris: I understand. But... Please, just be more careful from now on
  • Garrett: I will, I promise
  • Isabela: You two are so sappy... It's actually rather cute

I.

“C’mon, Charlie, I’ll race ya!”

Dean took off from his front porch as soon as his mom had placed a quick kiss to the top of his head, running through their yard toward the street corner as fast as he could. He was almost there when he turned to see if Charlie Bradbury, his next-door neighbor and best friend since they were toddlers, was catching up. She was one of the fastest runners in their grade and even with his head start, she wouldn’t have much trouble beating him. Charlie was still several feet behind him though, and Dean had just turned forward again when he hit something – hard.

Dean fell to the ground with a thump, wincing at the sharp pain in his backside. He heard his mom call to him, asking if he was okay, but he was distracted by what he’d run into – or rather, who. Because there, splayed out on the ground in front of him, was a dark-haired boy he’d never seen before, wiping grass off his hands and reaching over to pick up the book he’d apparently dropped.

“Who are you?” Dean asked curiously.

The boy turned his gaze to Dean, who was distracted for a second by his eyes – which were brilliantly, brightly blue. “I’m Castiel,” the boy said, climbing to his feet. He held out a hand to pull Dean up just as Charlie, Dean’s mom, and another woman Dean had never seen before reached them.

“Are you two all right?” Mary asked the boys, swiping a bit of dirt from Dean’s arm.

“We’re fine,” Dean said, picking up his backpack from where it had fallen behind him. “Sorry I ran into you,” he said to Castiel, who gave him an easy smile back.

“It’s okay,” he said. “I wasn’t looking anyway.”

“This is why you shouldn’t read while you walk, Castiel,” the other woman admonished, but her tone was more amused than anything.

“And you, Dean,” Mary said, “need to remember that not everything is a race.”

-teases you a lot, though you don’t hate him in fact you eagerly wait for him to say something rude so you can fire back your rebuttal

-you would probably have to ask him out and he would respond with a blush on his face

-“I guess, If I don’t have anything better to do”

-this salty child would still show up at your house super early to pick you up for your date

-you tease him about it and he just blushes and grumbles at you to shut up

-you both walk to a small café not too far from your house

-the walk there seems a little tense but you aren’t as nervous as you thought you’d be

-seeing the usually sarcastic blonde nervous somehow made you feel more calm

-café date!!

-fortunately your usual witty banter is still present as you gently tease him as he opens the door for you

-“wow so chivalrous, you’re just full of surprises aren’t you tsukishima?”

-he returns the favor as you nearly trip whilst walking through the doorway

-“good to see you’re as graceful as always.”

-he orders for the two of you as you find as seat

-you find a table for the two of you before spotting a small checkerboard in the corner

- snag it and lay it out on the table

-he brings back your drinks and one strawberry shortcake, informing you that it was the last piece

-he offers it to you

-how polite

-but no, the winner will take the cake

-you challenge him to a game of checkers

-the winner gets the treat

-he promises not to go easy on you

-you’re winning at first, then he’s winning

-a lot of witty banter being exchanged with each move

-your drinks are being drained but you’re way too entertained to notice

-a lot of time passes as you continue to rematch each other the cake being forgotten in the process

-after about 6 games of checkers and hours’ worth of charming conversation you finally forfeit

-he smirks and makes some smart ass remark but you aren’t having it

-swipe your finger through the frosting and smudge it on his face

-he’s taken back but then he laughs about to wipe it off with a napkin

-kiss it off his lips

-NOW HES REALLY TAKEN A BACK

-“you had something on your face” you retort slightly out of breath from the kiss and frosting visible on your face

-he smirks at you

-BUT HE IS DEFINITELY WORKING VERY HARD TO KEEP HIS COOL

-he won but you end up sharing the cake

-once you’ve finished he offers to walk you home

-you two don’t hold hands as you walk but you know he’s happy

-once you reach your door you turn back to say thanks for the great time

-HE KISSES YOU

-“you had something on your face”

-sure;)

I already did first date hc’s for Nishinoya, so I’ll put a link:)

-you flip out and are ecstatic to go see your fav band perform but also to go on a  date with your crush

-he shows up at your house and your probs decked out in merch

-you have to catch a train to the concert so you are both rushing to make it to the station on time

-when you finally make it to the concert its packed

- you two have to hold hands just so you don’t get separated;)

-when your favorite band starts playing your both screaming and jumping along to the music

-you may even start singing along off key and outrageously loud but he thinks its absolutely adorable and laughs

-he came surprisingly prepared with water bottles and snacks for you when you get hungry or thirsty

-you both purchase matching concert merch like tshirts

-the concert sadly ends and you realize how tired you are

-gladly offers to carry you on his back

-you excitedly ramble to him every event that occurred during the concert and he listens intently even though he witnessed it himself

-he just likes hearing you talk

-he carries you all the way to the train setting you down on the seat

-you cuddle up against him and thank him for such an amazing time

- he smiles when he sees your eyes close and you drift off to the steady whirring of the engine on the train

I ACTUALLY JUST WROTE MY DREAM DATES SO IM SORRY IF YOU DON’T LIKE THEM

anonymous asked:

Let's say America, England, Prussia, Germany, and Romano were out with their S/O one day, and they saw a not-good person from their S/O's past, (bully, parent, sibling, relative ex SO, ex friend, etc) and they try to approach them, causing the S/o to panic. What would the country do? (I'm so sorry for this long / possibly boring ask! And if you don't want to answer it then I understand.)

Oh hun I don’t think this ask is boring at all! Of course I’ll do it, thanks a lot for sending it in! So for this ask, I just went off the assumption that the countries don’t know why their s/o is so upset, because they’re not aware of the history. I hope that’s alright dear and that my response brings some cheer to your day~!


America: The moment Alfred sees how upset his s/o is at this person from their past coming close, he’ll become very protective of his s/o. He’s the Hero after all, he’s not going to leave his s/o defenseless! If his s/o is really panicking bad, he’ll pull them away from the situation because he doesn’t want them even near this person that’s freaking them out so much. After they’re at a safe spot, he’ll do his best to calm them down, probably by buying them something to nibble on and cracking jokes to distract them. Once they’re alright, he’ll definitely want to know why they reacted the way that they did. Did that person ever hurt them? If so, his s/o might have a problem with Alfred trying to get up and go hunt down that person, but he would at least take his s/o home before that because they’re his first priority.

England: Even though Arthur doesn’t understand what’s happening, he doesn’t need to. What’s important to him is that his s/o is really upset right now and he needs to change that. He definitely wouldn’t even bother with this person coming over, just walk away with his s/o as if they don’t even exist. They’re clearly not worth his time and energy anyway. His main goal will be taking his s/o home (unless they don’t want to) and making sure that they’re okay. He’ll make them some calming tea and drink it with them, occasionally squeezing his s/o’s hand reassuringly. He recognizes that it was a bit of an extreme reaction, so he’ll want to know why his s/o got so upset. He won’t push them to talk about it if they don’t want to though, because he’s just happy nothing bad happened.

Prussia: Gilbert’s immediate reaction to seeing how panicked and frightened his s/o is would be to step in front of them to block the person. If they try to go around him or confront him about why he’s not letting them near his s/o, he’ll get super rude with them. Either way though, he’d be confident in his ability to keep his s/o safe and after sending a nasty glare the person’s way, he’d try to bring his s/o’s attention to something else. They’d walk away and he’d take them to do something fun, whatever they want! Meanwhile, as his s/o is calming down, he’d be keeping a wary eye out for the person trying to approach again, even if they’re in a completely new location. Once the day is over and they’re home, he’d let his s/o know they can talk to him about it if they want. Also, do they need him to beat anybody up because he can do that for them easily. He’d be happy to just spend the night chilling with his s/o too though.

South Italy: He’d be a bit unsure how to handle the situation at first. He doesn’t know the story behind his s/o’s fear and he’s not exactly the best at confronting potentially dangerous situations. However, Romano does have quite an attitude so when he realizes his s/o is really upset, he’ll snap at the person coming close. He’ll tell them to back off, probably cursing at them or throwing an insult and then hurry away with his s/o as fast as possible. He’d definitely just want to get out of there, whatever they were doing can wait till tomorrow. His s/o is more important anyway. Once they’re home, he’d again be a bit worried because he’s not sure how to go about making them feel better. In the end, he’ll just get stressed out himself and pull them in for a hug, rubbing their back until they’ve calmed down. If they want to talk, he’s fine with that because he’s there for them, as long as they feel better. 

Germany: He’s honestly caught being aggressive towards this person and immediately helping out his s/o. Ludwig definitely doesn’t like that just this person’s presence can upset his s/o this much, it will make him suspect something deeper. He would decide to just leave with his s/o, but if this person tries to talk to them at all, all he’ll need to do is glare to get them to back off. He’ll take his s/o home and bring his dogs all in for a massive cuddle with his s/o, to cheer them up and calm them down. As they’re playing and petting the dogs, he’d keep wondering to himself why that person made his s/o react the way they did. He’s very worried for them and so he’ll ask them about it, plain and simple. He’ll end up being extra cautious whenever they go out in the future, though he’ll try not to let his s/o know. He just really wants to make sure that doesn’t happen again and that his s/o is happy.

i just want to take a moment to reflect on the gravity of what we know about solo!harry so far.

as fans, we support him because we already know he is special.  we have paid close enough attention that, over time, we have seen him command everything from one-on-one conversations to entire stadiums full of people.  we have witnessed countless individuals – many of whom know little to nothing about him – have chance meetings with him and walk away from those encounters with stars in their eyes, in absolute awe of him, of that “something” about him that makes him harry.  either we’ve met him ourselves, or we’ve been to concerts, or we’ve watched videos of concerts (or all of the above), and we’ve come to know that he’s just special.  gemma – who would know better than any of us – said in her piece for another man that even as a child, harry “had that sort of magnetism that made people just want to watch him.”

i mention all of this to underscore that those of us who are already fans are fans for a reason.  we already know he’s going to excel on his own; we’ve just been waiting patiently (or not so patiently) for him to get started.

but can we take a minute to talk about the people who are actually involved in this process?  the entire team behind him that is currently revving up to launch him as a solo artist?  those people are in a totally different position than we are.  they aren’t interested in harry’s success because he brings them personal joy (although, let’s be honest, he surely does); they’re interested in his success because it will bring THEM success.  that’s the bottom line here – big money.

if you, like i, have grown up in the rapidly-changing digital era, you may have noticed that the music industry runs differently than it used to.  as a child, i would buy an entire album on cassette or cd because i’d heard one song on the radio and wanted to listen to that song over and over again.  i bought many albums as a child that, to this day, i still haven’t listened to in their entirety.  but the industry doesn’t work like that anymore.  when music went digital, it became a lot easier for consumers to only buy the songs they cared about.  as a byproduct of that, new artists these days are often given a very limited budget in the beginning – they’re only allowed, at first, to record one or two songs.  those songs are released as singles, and then, if they do well, that artist goes back into the studio and records an entire album.  it’s a smart decision on the part of record companies to avoid spending too much money on artists that end up “flopping.”

i keep thinking about harry in this context.  i keep thinking about how he has had the ability to release solo music for more than a year now, about how easy it would have been for him – and columbia and everyone else involved – to record one single, release it quickly, do a bit of promotion, (likely) make a bunch of money and then go from there.  coming off of 1d’s tremendous success, it would have made everyone a quick, easy buck.

but they didn’t do that.  although harry and jeff signed together on january 1, 2016 – likely their first opportunity to do so – they still took their time.  columbia, et al. agreed to invest $75-80 million worth of resources (at least) into harry as a solo artist without even requiring him to release a “test single” first.  they’ve agreed to let him record his entire first album (and, seemingly, have started planning to release it) without even requiring him to release a test single first!

i won’t proclaim to be some kind of music industry genius because i’m far from it, but just based on what i’ve observed as a music fan in general over the last decade or so, this is HUGE to me.  everyone behind harry appears to have so much faith in him already.  i think it’s so important to recognize the personal/professional gamble that jeff is taking in this situation as well.  here we have jeffrey azoff, eldest son of irving azoff – an absolute legend in the music industry – who is under a lot of pressure to live up to his dad’s name.  he literally quit his job as a music agent to start a management company with harry as one of his first major clients.  of course, he likely would have started his own management company eventually regardless of whether he ever met harry, but the fact that they timed this major event in their professional lives so they could “go solo together” speaks volumes about the faith he has in harry as an artist.

we’re on the outside looking in, and we know harry is amazing based on what we have seen him do as part of a group… but these people already know solo harry.  they know what he is capable of, and they’re rallying behind him because they have total faith he will succeed.  and that’s just really fucking awesome.

lovelyebb  asked:

Is the podcast going to stay 100% quiet until fall or do you have any kind of bonus content planned? (Because I don't know how I'm gonna survive waiting until fall XD)

A few people have been asking us this and I’m so flattered and happy that people are that anxious for new content! But sadly the answer is no. I was able to do the Sam minis last summer because all they required was me and a mic and they narratively made sense. I don’t know what the equivalent for this hiatus would be. 

To demystify things a little, we wrapped production on this season in mid-April, I was done with my edit a few weeks later and then a week after that I went immediately into pre-production for Season 4. So I’ve been working on S4 for about a month and I’m already starting to get worried about having things done in time to go back into production in July/August. 

While I have an incredible sound designer and composer and the absolute best team of actors who are all passionate about the show and willing to toss around ideas with me, contribute to the bonus content etc., I am still the sole writer/producer/director/business manager/social media marketing gal/IT guy for the show and I still do it for free (I pay myself for acting though, which is nice). Some lovely people have offered/expressed interest in helping out but I don’t feel comfortable asking someone to take on that workload and not pay them - if someone is going to do unpaid labor, I’d rather it was me (also I’m a bit of a control freak, whoops). 

I’m not saying all this to be all, “oh woe is me, I work so hard” - I am so freakin’ lucky to have the life that I do. Yeah, I work a lot, but I love what I do and it’s all worth it when I get to make an episode with my super talented team and then release it to you all. I’m just laying all this out because with our success comes the assumption that there’s this huge machine churning this show out. (I’m not saying you assume that, but I’ve responded to emails before and gotten emails back saying, “wow, I can’t believe you responded, I was expecting to jump through PR hoops!” and I’m always like…I am our PR person. No one else has access to this email. I’m currently eating cereal in my pajamas). 

We still record in my bedroom. I still spend a ton of time on social media trying to get the show into new ears or googling how to do stuff because I still don’t know what I’m doing. I would love to release a new episode every week but there’s scheduling conflicts, leaf blowers outside my bedroom window that make recording impossible, weeks when my for-rent job offers more hours and I have to snatch them up so I can make a little extra money - there’s so much practical nonsense that goes into this that I don’t often get to write as much as I would like. But I’m working on the “get paid for writing” part of my life and then hopefully I can become some sort of content machine. 

This is all very long-winded and unnecessary but I hope pulling back the curtain makes the waiting a little bit easier. And I really hope that this encourages people who think they can’t do something without a big team or a lot of money - you can. I make no guarantees about what will happen to your social life/sleep cycle, but it is possible. If you love the idea, you can get it out there. 

That all being said, there’s gonna be some more mixtape-y stuff coming out over the summer and maybe some sort of livestream Q&A type thing with more of the team, if that’s something people would be into. And maybe I’ll actually start to put a dent in our show’s tumblr inbox.

Summary: Saddened at the idea of having to spend Christmas alone, you return to your apartment to find an unexpected surprise in the form of your very cute, sexy and adorable boyfriend Namjoon. 


Snowflakes floated gracefully down to the pavement as you walked through the bustling city streets. Lights were strung up all around you, twinkling beautifully in a whole spectrum of colours and the gorgeous scent of mulled wine and cinnamon lingered in the air. Everything about the place was simply magical, children wearing thick coats and knitted scarves weaved in and out of market stalls laughing gleefully as their parents chased behind them, the whole atmosphere of the place was just…good.

And yet despite the magnificence of everything, you found it hard to smile, you found it challenging to even care enough the admire the scene taking place all around you. Because for the first time in years you would be spending Christmas alone. The very thought of this made the vibrant reds and greens seem duller, the delicious scents made you feel nauseous and all the hanging lights gave you a painful headache.

You dragged your feet against the pavement until finally you reached the entrance to your apartment building. With numb fingers, you pulled out your key and turned it in the lock of the main entrance. Reluctantly, you wandered into the building, the warmth from inside instantly hitting your body and thawing your frozen skin.

The lobby area was quiet, painfully so, most of the residents had gone to see their family and loved ones over the holidays leaving the hallways deserted and silent, it was almost eerie. Your parents had gone to visit some friends of theirs in another country and despite their invitation for you to join them you hadn’t wanted to intrude on their gathering so you’d assured them you would spend the Christmas with your boyfriend Namjoon. At the time you hadn’t been lying, you really had thought the two of you would be able to spend Christmas together, but sadly he’d ended up having to work right the way through until New Year’s Eve.

You’d understood of course, work came first. Namjoon was the heir to a highly prestigious company, his father being the manager of it, you knew that if he wanted to take over one day, he couldn’t afford to take much time off. He had to show that he was determined, dependable and focused, and so, when he’d announced with a sullen face that he couldn’t be with you on Christmas, you’d simply nodded, even managing a small smile.

It was just one Christmas after all. Sure, the sheer feeling of isolation was going to be pretty miserable but…it was just one Christmas.

You traipsed through to the elevator, pressing the correct button to get to your floor, the Christmas music playing on the speakers cruelly mocking you with its sickly sweet melody, one that left a bitter taste in your mouth. You supposed you should feel grateful, to spend your Christmas in such a luxurious apartment, something that was all thanks to Namjoon and his hard work, but it was hard to see the value of expensive items  when you had no one to share them with.

You worked hard too of course, but working as a waitress didn’t exactly bring in the same paycheck as the ridiculous amounts of money your boyfriend made. Nonetheless, you would insist on buying most things for yourself as much as he wanted to spoil you, you never let him buy you clothes or technology or other kinds luxurious presents, the only exceptions being your birthday or Christmas.

When you reached the door of your apartment, you pulled out another key from the key ring and turned it in the lock in one smooth action, you pulled the handle down so the door swung open. In the darkness, you stumbled towards the light switches and flicked them on individually until the room was thoroughly illuminated, , your books were still scattered across the coffee table and a small Christmas tree stood pathetically by the couch. You had half a mind to take it down right now and pretend that Christmas wasn’t happening.

Just as you were about to collapse on the couch you heard a strange clattering noise coming from the kitchen. The first time, you decided to simply ignore it, you couldn’t muster the energy to go and check the source of the noise. However, after a few seconds the noise occurred again, over and over, becoming more and more impossible to ignore.

You weren’t scared for some reason, as you moved towards the kitchen, not even considering the possibility that someone could have broken in, perhaps you were just too blue to care. But as you swung the door open you were met with a sight you certainly had not expected.

Your boyfriend was standing amongst a heap of pots and pans, something was steaming in the corner and the plates were piled a mile high in the sink, the oven was on, the microwave was on, the kettle was on, just about everything was on and the room had a rather odd smell to it, like a mixture of hundreds of different varieties of food. 

Yet despite the disastrous surroundings, a feeling of blissful joy ran through your veins at the sight of him and without even a second thought, you found your feet moving and your body throwing itself into his unexpecting one.

“Y/N! You’re home” he exclaimed happily once he was over the initial shock of basically being tackled into a hug. His skin was so warm against your cold cheek and  you gripped him even more tightly. Your body must have still been quite cold because you felt him shiver, but he made no complaint as he wrapped his long arms around you.

7 and lams would be too cute

7. I KNOW YOUR WEAKNESS.  IT’S KISSES.  YOU ARE DOOMED. (DON’T WORRY.  WE’RE ALL DOOMED EVENTUALLY.) 

Alexander pulls back the shower curtain and John screeches, yelps, nearly slipping on the bottom of the tub and Alexander just laughs, head thrown back and eyes crinkling like the endearing son-of-a-bitch that he is, and leans in and smacks a kiss right on John’s lips, slack from shock. 

“Good morning sunshine boy!” he grins, and John rolls his eyes but softens immediately, and Alexander darts in for another kiss, and then another, two more, and then John’s standing in the tub as the water runs gradually colder and Alexander’s lips are soft and his tongue is gentle and his hands come up to slip into John’s wet curls. 

He pulls away, smiling sweetly, and then smacks John’s ass hard enough to make him shout. 

“Asshole!” John yells but Alexander’s already fled the scene of the crime, his laughter echoing through the apartment as he darts into the kitchen. John shakes his head and rubs his ass cheek, hurrying through the rest of his shower routine because the water is flat out cold now, damnit, and this is why he should never let Alexander distract him with kisses. 

He never learns.

anonymous asked:

I'm gonna say 3:4 for Victuuri because I honestly can't be the only one who had thoughts about Nishigori and the triplets not existing and Yuuri actually confessing his feelings for Yuuko after skating Stay Close To Me like he was so close to doing?

Okay so here’s the thing: I really REALLY object to this concept but here’s how it would pan out, probably. Maybe. 

Yuuri is Yuuko’s Best Friend From Childhood, the Beautiful Boy, the one she still feels a little bit of responsibility for even though two years isn’t nearly as much at age twenty-three and twenty-five as it is at ages seven and nine. He returns from America, heartbroken, and (Provided Nishigori and the triplets aren’t a thing) she’s been keeping her bed warm by herself most nights for the past five years, so why not? Why not.

There’s somewhere in the area of four months between Yuuri coming home and Viktor’s arrival. They go fine, and Yuuri’s family has always liked Yuuko. Maybe Hiroko has started to let herself believe that she’ll be hosting a wedding at Yu-Topia after all. Maybe it will be Yuuko’s stomach she rubs to commune with her unborn grandchildren. Hiroko would be fine with this, if it weren’t for the fact that Yuuri’s smiles still don’t reach his eyes.

Yuuko cares deeply for Yuuri. He’s a pleaser. He wants to make her happy, tries to hard to do it. In bed, especially, he is very attentive. She’s starting to wonder if you can get tired of cunnilingus. Sometimes she’ll trace her fingers down his back, and feel the chub around his hips and wish that he knew how beautiful he is. 

More than that, she wishes she loved him. Because it would be so easy to spend the rest of her life with Yuuri Katsuki, so easy to become Yuuko Katsuki an give birth to three beautiful, brown-eyed and near-sighted children with shy smiles. She convinces herself that it’s what she wants, some days.

When Viktor Nikiforov breezes into town, Yuuri becomes a different person over night, and Yuuko knows what’s going to happen. She knows, and she doesn’t stop it. Doesn’t even want to, because maybe this is what will finally make Yuuri happy.

“I’m so sorry,” Yuuri whispers to her, the day he arrives back from China. They’re standing in the back corner of the skate rental office, and Yuuko has hung the Be Right Back! sign instead of the On Break sign because this won’t take long.

“I know,” Yuuko murmurs, and kneels down with him, because Yuuri has actually lowered himself to his knees before her. “I know, shh.”

“This shouldn’t have happened,” Yuuri whispers against her neck. “I never–I never wanted to hurt you. Ever. Please believe me.”

“I do,” she murmurs. “I do believe you.”

“Do you think I’m a horrible person?” Yuuri whispers.

“Do you love him?” Yuuko asks, 

Yuuri’s eyes go very soft and then, lowly, he murmurs, “Yes. I…I don’t think I knew what love really was, until I met him.”

It’s almost like some sort of singularity occurs for a moment because Yuuko can envision it all–two men coming together in the most carnal of ways, bed sheets twisted, silver hair tangling and brown eyes fluttering. She imagines them laughing as they do it, because laughter follows Vikor Nikiforov around like his dog. Yuuko feels like she should be more upset about it than she is. She’s not angry, though. Or even sad.

“You fucked him, didn’t you?” she almost wants to ask, but feels almost like she’s the one who doesn’t have the right. Almost like she’s the other woman. Instead, she says, “Then no, I don’t think you’re a horrible person.”

Yuuri still cries, and Yuuko still holds him, and then he recovers himself and leaves. Viktor is waiting for him, because of course he is. Yuuko doesn’t even have to force herself to smile at them as they leave. 

Yuuri was never hers, she thinks. Maybe it was just her job to keep him together until the right person came along. And if so, that’s fine. It was worth it.

anonymous asked:

I would love to see something about maybe Reaper with a S/O who loves toys?? Like colorful dolls and animals and whatnot. I feel like that combination will be interesting! Thank you so much!

All the Colors 

You’re pretty handy with a needle, and you weren’t afraid to make that known with each new doll you made. Reaper, despite being far removed from the man once known as Gabriel Reyes, appreciated it and would say nothing whenever you’d return from a mission with two or three new colorful dolls or plush toys that you’ve crafted mid-transit (even if they were hilariously large and hindered your ability to open doors).

The good majority of Talon could say nothing either. Either because they feared your relationship with Reaper, who had made it clear to everyone on more than one occasion that your interests are not an acceptable point of ridicule, or they feared retribution from you, the group’s chief information broker–it’s common knowledge by now that on your word alone, you can essentially determine who lives or dies (like that one guy who tore one of your stuffed dolphins in half, and then mysteriously got sent off to Antarctica to retrieve a highly radioactive material guarded by a group of hostile Omnics without the proper precautions–the end result was not pretty).

Today, it is no different. He and Sombra see you coming down the hall, an armful of colorful, round somethings, the size of volleyballs. You looked like you had some trouble with them. 

“Oi, wha’chu got there?” Sombra gasps, “Are those new?” 

Your eyes light up when you notice them coming, and you sprint to meet them. “Good timing, you two!” 

Both Reaper and Sombra look at each other. Usually, ‘good timing’ in Talon terms mean that something has happened and everything’s going to go to hell, or someone’s about to be in a very uncomfortable position. This time, it is the latter. 

“Could you hold these for me? I’ll be right back. Gotta grab meet with someone.” Without even waiting for an answer, you shove your inventory into Reaper’s arms with a, “Thanks, I love you!”, and tear down the hall, the echoes of your heels fading fast. 

Both Sombra and Reaper look at the items you’ve forced upon them. 

“Oh no,” the hacker hisses excitedly. “They’re cute.”

i.m x reader ➠ requested by anonymous—”fluffy changkyun scenario.”

warnings: none. genre: fluff. word count: 989 a/n: this was super vague so i just ran with it the only way i know how… with stupid humour and dumb scenarios.

Originally posted by iamonstax

After a week of rain you were overjoyed to wake up one morning and find sunlight streaming through your blinds. Usually you aren’t much of a morning person but this morning was a special one–you had to call Changkyun and make sure he was free to enjoy the sunshine.

Do you have any idea what time it is?” is the first thing he said to you that day.

“It’s not like you’re a stranger to waking up early.”

There’s silence on the other end and for a moment you’re worried he’s fallen asleep but– “Yeah, I know, I’ve been up for an hour already.” He laughed loudly and you realised that the other members must be awake too. “Figured you’d call me when you saw the weather so I didn’t bother waking you.

“How do you know me so well?”

You could actually picture his exaggerated shrug before he replied. “I love you, don’t I? Anyway, am I picking you up or what?

My Yuri Manga List

It has been requested of me that I share a list of the Shoujo-ai/Yuri manga I have read. This will be a LONG list. I also should warn beforehand that some of the one-shots I list will be found in the anthologies I list (meaning they’ll technically be listed twice), but I’d rather be safe than sorry. 

Seeing as this list has been around a long time now, I have decided to open requests! If there is a manga you’d like me to review, or one currently on the list you’d like me to review in greater detail, feel free to submit a message and I will see what I can do! As a note however I will not review a doujinshi from an anime/manga that I have not seen/read. I have been considering starting a separate list for doujin reviews. So, yeah! Submit me requests!

I think your LLSHP AU is unforgettable & if some areas are a bit hazy it gives me a good excuse to re-read the previous chapter(s)! I love your characterisation & the original storyline & it makes me want more but at the same time I appreciate that you need time to write it and it's definitely worth the wait! I'm a huge fan of all of your work! I was so happy that you drew the Kanachika pic last week I thought of it as an unofficial early birthday present & now this update I'm very lucky indeed!

Thanks so much Anon!  Yes, one of my biggest concerns is that, it’s been months since the previous chapter so people probably don’t remember what happened this slow writer had to reread too to confirm some details LOL But yes, thanks very much for enjoying my stuff (╥_╥) and, since I’m still in the LLSHP AU mode, happy birthday Anon!

(this is when Kanan became Captain/Keeper and passed down the position of Beater to Chika)

It's mind-boggling that so many adaptations try to push the Benvolio/Rosaline pairing. We got After Juliet, Romeo's Ex, the 2013 film, and now Still Star-crossed.

I wonder why! After reading a summary on Goodreads, I found the love plot of Romeo’s Ex rather repetitive—a Capulet and a Montague who fall in love and try to end the feud? Isn’t that exactly what Shakespeare wrote in Romeo and Juliet? If we are to create a romantic relationship for Benvolio, I would rather he loved Mercutio. (I’m still waiting for a production that follows this text post.) As for Rosaline, I do like what the canon explicitly specifies: she does not want to have anything to do with men, so let her.

I have mixed feelings about Still Star-crossed. On the one hand, the diversity of the cast makes me very happy, and it was filmed quite near where I live! (I actually found out about it because a professor from the University of Salamanca mentioned it on his Facebook page.) On the other hand, I’m uncomfortable with the whole premise of the story. It revolves around the idea that the households did not cease the violence after Romeo and Juliet’s suicide. I’ve always thought, however, that the reconciliation of the families was pretty much the whole reason why the story was even told in the first place. If you look at the Prologue, Romeo and Juliet are first mentioned because they were the ones to stop the feud: ‘A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life, / Whose misadventured piteous overthrows / Doth with their death bury their parents’ strife.’ A few lines later the same idea is repeated: ’… the continuance of their parents’ rage, / Which, but their children’s end, naught could remove.’

To me, the fact that their love defeated all the hate and violence of Verona is one of the reasons why their story is so powerful and worth telling. This is why I think the idea of Still Star-crossed demolishes Shakespeare’s play and takes away its beauty… if the households impassively continue to exert violence after their children kill themselves in a desperate attempt to escape from the feud, what is the point of their deaths? It becomes quite a desolate story, where nothing can stop tyranny and where not even ‘a glooming peace’ is brought by the morning. However, I think the play does suggest that Romeo and Juliet’s love can indeed overcome their households’ hate. This is why I’m not particularly fond of the plot of the show, not only because of the Rosaline/Benvolio pairing, but because it kind of makes Romeo and Juliet’s deaths pointless.

anonymous asked:

I'm actually really excited that Lena doesn't know about Kara. I want to have a big reveal scene so badly and those two would be perfect for it. Do you think it could possible happen in season 3 though?

I’m not sure…

Supergirl loves to blow through plot points at the speed of the Flash (remember how quickly Alex keeping the secret of killing Astra was resolved? Or how Kara got into a relationship, broke up with him, got back together- rise, repeat- finally was happy with him, and then finally lost him, all within the course of a season?)

And everyone else on the show found out comparatively quickly.

But if I were them I’d milk the shit out of this dynamic as it is, especially since Kara doesn’t have the identity secret with anyone else on the show. It’s a fun thing to play with, in my opinion. And like Katie Mcgrath said,

Part of the fun is the fact that she’s one of the only people who doesn’t know, and that gives their relationship something different than she has with anybody else. With Lena, Kara can just be Kara; she can be Kara Danvers, not the superhero. She doesn’t have this weight and this responsibility on her. All she has to do when she’s with Lena is be a good friend. 

So I hope you, in a way, never see it, because what you have between the two is a very equal relationship. Lena doesn’t have to be this powerful corporate leader, she can just be a flawed human being, and so can Kara. The longer that you don’t ever see that, to me, the better.

But, for me, what would be great to see is how, after some angst over the reveal and then eventual subsequent reuniting, they find that same balance again.

Then we’ll be able to see Kara still feel… normal even if Lena knows she’s Supergirl. Wouldn’t that be great to see? Kara expecting everything to change because of who she is, the dynamic to shift and for her to lose that part of her life, but after some time and airing everything out Lena just… still sees her the same way?

But then, the reveal. Won’t that be fun. Just.. really digging into these two and their fears of not being accepted by the other. Kara, fearing that Lena will hate her for keeping the secret, and Lena, fearing that Kara thinks she’s untrustworthy. 

Do both of them succumb to their fears? 

Kara, never telling her until Lena finds out on her own or is showed, and Lena, lashing out and destroying their friendship when she finds out Kara’s been lying to her? How do they mend everything after that?

There’s soooo much we can play with here, on so many levels and in so many different directions. There are things we should really dive into while the secret is still in play, when it’s revealed, and then what it means for them on the other side of it all.

So I think they should take their time. Not tooooo long, like I don’t need her to finally find out in season 8, but give it enough time to really give the stages the significance they can achieve.

But, that being said, Supergirl does like to have very quickly paced plot points.

And then again, they also seem to be, for once, playing the long game with Lena’s character and her morality. (But like… I don’t think they’re quite comfortable with that narrative style, hence the weirdly rapid pace “Wait does that mean she’s evil??? Nope! Wait what about this thing, will that make her evil… No? phew.” over and over again. Like they don’t know how to not resolve a plot point, so they just keep resolving it and then bringing it up again and call it a slowburn moral arc.)

So really, it’s whatever the writers feel like. In fact, it probably depends on what they have in store otherwise.

Lena could find out in the season 3 finale or the first season 3 episode. Who knows? I can’t guess what they’ll do, or what’s best for the overall plot beyond these two, because I don’t know what they have planned beyond this dynamic.
