So my office also houses the Veteran’s Administration and today, walking into the elevator with a cup of very hot coffee I damned near collided with an absurdly good looking Marine in his dress uniform and he’s all “Pardon me, ma'am” with a tilt of his head and my brain is all “oh wow this could be the start of a great Olicity AU…”

I don’t think we talk enough about the fact that Leorio’s nen abilities aren’t just for punching assholes in the face

They serve a  medical purpose  (no equipment required= low cost, so he can most likely afford to treat patients for free)

If he could develop this ability and eliminate internal tumors completely…

Leorio could detect and cure cancer, and do it for free.

i’d just like to say a thing, before i go to bed and sleep this fucking raging headache i have right now off, and that is: be careful with your fucking words. there are things that are uncalled for and don’t think the whole ‘’’freedom of speech’’’ bullshit covers all the stupidity that may come out of your mouth, or, you know, your keyboards.

u have probably already gone to bed but also adding adams apples to characters that don't have them (especially one like pearl who isn't a women but is usually interpreted as feminine) to make them look funnier is transmisogynistic

[ Screams about Over Heaven. I never thought I would like DIO until logic was put behind his actions. He’s such a cool villain lays down……. ]

anonymous asked:

ok u must get this a lot but what are your favorite books with queer protags???

oooooh 

- Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith – teenage boy explores his bisexuality as he wrestles with his guilt over a) having feelings for both his best friend and his girlfriend and b) accidentally starting the apocalypse-by-giant-preying-mantis. (literally my favourite book.) 

- The Vintner’s Luck by Elizabeth Knox – grumpy vintner bumps into an angel one night when he’s pickled and wandering around the vineyard, and winds up making a date to meet once a year, on the same night, forever. you will probably cry yourself to sleep afterwards. 

- As Meat Loves Salt by Maria McCann – sociopathic romp through Civil War era England accompanied by THE WORLD’S SLOWEST BURN and MURDER. even if you’ve been an English Civil War nerd for 15 years before reading this book, this book will forever be the first thing you think of when you think of the English Civil War. a scourge. 

- Tipping the Velvet by Sarah Waters – cute girl leaves home and becomes a music hall male impersonator. lesbian shenanigans by the barrowful follow. set in Victorian London and actually has a happy ending! yay! 

- Running With Scissors by Augusten Burroughs – a memoir documenting Augusten Burroughs’ teenage years living with his mother’s psychiatrist and his madcap family. I took this in stride when I first read this book at the tender age of 14, but now it gives me PALPITATIONS and a BURNING URGE to ring Esther Rantzen. 

- Call Me By Your Name by Andrew Aciman – THE PEACH BOOK!

- The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller – I love this book so much I have to forcibly stop myself from buying a copy every time I see one in a secondhand bookshop. you go into it thinking you’ll be FINE because everyone KNOWS what happens to Patroclus, it’s not like you WON’T SEE IT COMING… and yet. no one is ever fine. 

- Maurice by E. M. Forster – astounding and wonderful book that was, surprisingly, written in 1912. there’s sex, it’s a happy ending, it has something very snotty to say about British attitudes towards homosexuality – it’s a joy. plus, the Merchant Ivory film version is full of totty. (yes, that’s Rupert Graves. you see him starkers. just saying.) 

- Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz – two Latinx boys falling in love. I read the entire thing in one sitting. it’s won so many awards you can barely see the cover art. deserves all the accolades and love, as it is HEARTBREAKINGLY GORGEOUS.

- More Than This by Patrick Ness – there is absolutely no way to explain this book without spoiling everything about it, so here’s the bare bones: Seth drowns, and then wakes up, alive, but completely and utterly alone. I had to put it down and go for stress walks at least 3 times. so good. 

- The Charioteer by Mary Renault – a soldier wounded in the evacuation of Dunkirk recuperates in hospital and tries to choose between two dudes: a young and innocent conscientious objector and a saucy and experienced naval officer. can I get a HAIL MARY?

You love him. I’m not saying in what way. Maybe you don’t know yourself. But anyone paying attention could see how much you care about him.

wolfstar prompt ~ sirius is desperately trying to tell remus that he likes him and wants to date but remus just thinks it's one of sirius' pranks/jokes

this one was really fun. thanks for the prompt. feel free to send more, even though they’re taking me forever to do!

The first time Sirius asks Remus out it’s during Potions class. Sirius is struggling, his brew turning a violent shade of pink, when it’s supposed to be a dark navy. Remus, whose own potion is bubbling away happily, notices Sirius’ concoction sloshing against the sides of his cauldron, and nudges him in the side.

“Try adding a few drops of tarantula venom and stirring counterclockwise,” he says quietly.

Sirius follows these instructions, and lets out a sigh of relief as his potion turns a colour much closer to navy.

“Thank Christ,” he breaths, and grins at Remus. “Thanks, Moony, I absolutely adore you.” He pauses for a minute before deciding to add, “You should probably let me take you on a date to make it up to you.”

Remus just laughs.

“I could never let you cheat on James like that,” he says, and turns back to his own potion. Sirius doesn’t press the matter.

The second time Sirius asks Remus out, it’s during the weekend when he, Remus, James, and Peter have all decided to get completely sloshed on Firewhiskey. They are celebrating. There isn’t really anything to celebrate, necessarily, but as James says as he pour the last few drops out of their third bottle, “Someone somewhere has a birthday today. Here’s to them!”

They are in the Shrieking Shack. James is lying on his back on the piano bench. Peter is on the floor, his arms wrapped around his knees, swaying slightly and looking ill. Sirius is leaning against the wall, and Remus is half comatose, using Sirius’ legs as a pillow.

“Your hair is curly,” Sirius says, tugging on one of the wavy curls that make up Remus’ mop of a head. “Has it always been this curly?”

“It’s the–(hic)–humidity,” Remus hiccups, eyes shut, grimacing.

“Liar,” Sirius says, resting his head on the wall. “‘S’not even humid.”

“Mm,” Remus says as a response, not really listening.

“I like them, though. The curls, I mean,” Sirius says. “They are nice, proper curls… You and your curls should go on a date with me.”

“Mm, just take my hair and leave me behind,” Remus mutters, rubbing his temples. “We both know that’s what you really want, after all.”

Sirius starts to object, but then Peter makes a groaning noise and starts vomiting on the floor. Distracted, (and disgusted), he doesn’t bring it up again.

The third time Sirius asks Remus out, it’s more like a confrontation.

He catches up with Remus as he’s walking to the library, and flat out asks, “Hey, how come you never believe me when I ask you on a date?”

“Uh, hello to you too,” Remus says, furrowing his brow and adjusting the bag on his shoulder.

“Yeah, hi, whatever, why don’t you believe me?”

“Er, because you’re joking? Because you’re you?” Remus says.

“What if I said I was serious?”

Remus stops right outside the library and snorts. “Well, I’d say, ‘I already knew that.’ See you at dinner,” he says, going inside, leaving Sirius behind, gaping.

“But, but,” he stammers. “You can’t use that joke against me. That’s my joke, Remus!”

He returns to Gryffindor Tower, begrudgingly.

The fourth time Sirius asks Remus out, it’s not even Sirius who does it, but James.

James finds Remus studying in the corner of the common room on a rare occasion where Sirius is in detention. (It’s not rare that Sirius is in detention, but that James isn’t there with him.)

“Hey,” James says, sitting down next to Remus. “Can I ask you a question?”

“Mm,” Remus grunts, not looking up from his parchment.

“Why don’t you ever date anyone?”

Remus does look up at that. “What?” he asks.

“You never date anyone. I know a few Ravenclaw girls tried to get you to go to Hogsmeade with them last visit. Why don’t you ever go?”

“Is that really why you interrupted my homework? To ask me about why I don’t date Ravenclaw girls?”

“Or Hufflepuff girls, or Slytherin ones, or even Gryffindor ones.”

“Not interested,” Remus says simply with a shrug, turning back to his essay.

“What about Ravenclaw boys then? Or boys in any house?”

“James,” Remus says warningly, glancing at him with a significant look. “That isn’t what I meant.”

“So no to boys too, then?”

“Don’t you have somewhere to be?” Remus says.

“So…yes to boys, then?”

“James!”

“Sorry,” James says, holding up his hands. “Just, if you ever are interested in dating, maybe you should, I dunno, talk to Sirius. See if he’s interested.”

Remus lets out an exasperated sigh. “This again?” he asks with an eye roll. “James Potter, if I am not left alone to finish this essay you are going to find your wand stuck up a very uncomfortable location, you understand?”

James doesn’t have to be told twice. He shrugs and goes off to quidditch practice. Later he tells Sirius, “He didn’t believe me either.”

Sirius isn’t planning on asking a fifth time.

He convinces himself that either Remus never will realize he’s not kidding, or he does realize it, and this is his awkward way of turning Sirius down.

Sirius decides to give up.

But then there is a full moon during winter holidays. Remus is left at Hogwarts, his parents on holiday out of country, visiting an aunt. Sirius stays behind despite being invited to James’ for Christmas, so Remus doesn’t have to go through it alone.

The morning after the full moon, they are in the Shrieking Shack. Sirius is still Padfoot when he wakes up, and when he transforms back he feels stiff and groggy. He looks over to Remus, who no longer resembles the monster he was a few hours prior, but carries wounds from the beast like souvenirs.

“Hey,” he says quietly, nudging Remus awake. “How are you feeling?”

“Not great,” Remus groans, flipping over onto his back and wincing. “Not the worst, either, though,” he adds. He squints up at Sirius. “How was everything last night? No one got hurt?”

“‘Course not,” Sirius says, laying on his stomach next to Remus, not unlike a dog. (It takes him a little while to get out of those habits after transforming.) “Well, I think you ate a bird or two, but they had it coming, honestly.”

“Yuck,” Remus says. “That’s why my stomach hurts, then.”

“Probably,” Sirius says, reaching over and grabbing Remus’ arm, examining him for cuts and bruises. Remus is watching him. Sirius grins at him, and pushes Remus’ hair back from his face in a gentle motion that makes Remus frown slightly.

“James asked me why I don’t date anyone,” he says after a minute.

“Did he?” Sirius asks, not meeting Remus’ eye.

“Mhm. I didn’t know why he was asking, but then he said I should consider dating you, so I figured he was just in on that joke.”

“Huh,” Sirius says.

“Sirius,” Remus asks. “That…that was a joke, right?”

Sirius chews on his bottom lip and stares at a spot on the floor for a moment, before turning back to Remus. “If it wasn’t, what would you say?”

“What would I say?” Remus asks. He has little cuts on both of his cheeks, and his lips are cracked. He shifts into a sitting position, and moves like every bone in his body hurts. Probably, they do. “Well,” he says. “If you want to know, you should try asking again.”

“What if you just think it’s a joke?”

“I won’t,” Remus says sincerely. “You don’t play jokes on me on full moon days.” This is true.

“Remus,” Sirius says, picking a piece of dirt off of Remus’ knee. “Will you go on a date with me?”

“Yes,” Remus says without hesitation. “Absolutely.”

“Good,” Sirius says softly. He picks up Remus’ hand and kisses his bruised knuckles. “That was way harder than it needed to be.”

“I don’t know why you didn’t just ask me ages ago,” Remus jokes.

“You’re the worst,” says Sirius, grinning.

“Yeah,” Remus agrees. “But at least I believe you now.” 

I have received an influx of asks about erejean fic recommendations & it’s come to my attention that I’ve read so many wonderful fics, but never had a proper list to give to anyone.
