Wonders - (Jess x Blake)

Jess looked beautiful, stunning in every way, Blake thought. With her long hair resting on her back after a long shift at work, and shirt untucked. She wasn’t on duty, so she didn’t mind looking “sloppy”. But honestly, SHE COULD pull off sloppy. Blake couldn’t admit to himself, but he has already fallen head over heels for her.
“Anyway… I think we should add the broiled lobster tails to the menu. What do you think?
Blake?” Mira’s voice shook him back to reality.
Right. They were standing on the deck, a few workers said their final ‘good night’s before heading to bed. Mira wanted to talk to him about the menu, but he was distracted. Jess was standing there, leaning on the railing, and glowing in the moonlight.
“Broiled lobster tails with garlic and chili butter, right? Great idea. As long as we add the dishes gradually, it should be fine.” Blake managed to compose himself and answered, looking back at Mira.
“Sure. Good thing we have Jess, right? That was her idea, after all.” Mira smiled, knowing more than Blake thought she does. “Yes, of course.” He tried to sound formal, but somehow his answer brought a smile to Mira’s face he didn’t know how to interpret, and he couldn’t help but feel he chose the ‘wrong’ answer.
“well, 'night.” Mira finally said, and turned away, walking back to her room.
Blake was about to do the same, before giving one last look at Jess. “Jess, you coming?” Carter shot at her, still goofing around with Dean.
“Nah, I’m good. I wanna stay here a little bit.” She answered, not even knowing Blake was watching her.
“as you wish” carter said back, a glimpse of disappointment reaching his voice.
Right. Blake knew he wasn’t the only one 'involved’ with Jess. That wasn’t too hard to understand. She was absolutely amazing. He’d have to be totally crazy to think he’s the only one to get that.
Still, he could hope.
“Jess.” He approached her. She was so busy looking at moon reflecting on the ocean it took her a few seconds to look up at him, but when she did, she flashed him her big heart-warming smile he’d so love seeing on her face.
“hey” she said.
“hi.” He smiled back, feeling a little nervous. It was strange how by just saying hi Jess could make him nervous. It was long since someone made him feel that way. He was married to his work, but lately, he started to wonder what it would be like to–GOD, never mind.
he definitely had butterflies in his stomach right now.
“Aren’t you cold?” he asked her. Great going. He frowned at himself. Jess probably catched on that because she giggled as she put a reassuring hand on his. “no, I’m fine.”.
She turned back to the ocean. Something clearly on her mind, but didn’t pull her hand away from his. He was thankful for that. And dared putting his other hand on her shoulder, which she responded with leaning into his touch.
he didn’t want to push, so he let her take her time.
“I took the test” she finally said. It wasn’t the answer to the question that was on his mind. Like, of course it was A question he had. But not 'THE question’.
“So… are you…?” he asked.
she turned again, but this time – towards him. “Pregnant. Yes.” She tried to sound as calm and collected as possible but her voice broke.

Is it mine?

he promised her he would be there for her. No matter what. Even if it wasn’t his. And he intended to keep that promise, but couldn’t help but wonder…

He shook himself out of those thought, feeling a little embarrassed that his first thought was about himself and not about HER. Right now, she needed him. He putted his arms around her, holding her tightly. “it’s gonna be okay. You can do this. We got this.” his voice was barely more than a whisper in her ear, but speaked volumes to her.
“oh Blake” she wasn’t crying. But she was emotional. And she hugged him back as tightly as he had.
Funny how, all the butterflies he was feeling earlier were long gone. He knew she needed him so he became her comforting shoulder.

did she catch him smiling? Jess wondered. She could’ve imagined it, it was only for a second, but she thought she saw Blake smile at the news, before taking her and holding her close. she felt safe in his hands. she believed his words as he whispered to her, calming down from the roller coaster of emotions she was feeling.
It’s not like she was devastated, or even actually sad about it.
It just was very confusing, and would require her to face things she have never faced before, and that scared her. But she wasn’t gonna face them alone. She had her family. And she had Blake.

Star Trek Character Ages

Over the past few days my sister and I have been doing very important research; we looked up the ages of all of the Star Trek characters. Quite possibly one of the most nerdy things I have spent my time doing, but, the results are quite interesting in some cases. So here you go tumblr.

*note: all of these ages were calculated using either birth years found on memory alpha or memory beta, so they may not be 100% correct, but I tried to be as accurate as possible.*

——At the start of their time on the series—–


Data-26 (based on activation date)
Beverley Crusher-40
Wesley Crusher-16

Dax (symbiont)- 351(born in 2018!!! Guys that is pretty soon)
Odo- 32 (based on date he was first found)
Quark- unknown (no recorded DOB)

The Doctor-0 (Activation date)
7 of 9-21 (however she spent time in a Borg maturation chamber)

Porthos-Unknown, but at least 2 years old

Go forth with the newfound knowledge you have gained! 

Modern AU that follows the ups and downs of a college English department:

  • Mary Shelley, the slightly morbid Brit lit professor who specializes in Gothic literature, and always has her students read the creepiest pieces
  • Edgar Allan Poe, the awkward, but lovable poetry professor who all the students either love or hate. 
  • Emily Dickinson, the other poetry professor, who no one seems to have classes with, despite the fact that she’s been at the school for years…and when are her office hours again?
  • Oscar Wilde, the Shakespeare professor, who teaches not only two lit classes focusing on Shakespeare, but also teaches a drama class. Everyone loves him.
  • Ernest Hemingway, the hard-ass creative writing professor, who rips everyone’s writing (and self esteem) to shreds.
  • Charlotte Bronte, the Brit lit professor who lives and dies by the canon and thinks YA is an affront to literature.
  • Louisa May Alcott, the American lit professor who goes off on tangents during lectures and loses her train of thought. People like her because she’s an easy grader.
  • Mary Ann Evans, the feminist American lit professor, constantly at war with Charlotte Bronte over what constitutes literature, and desperate to be taken seriously in the academic world.
  •  Fyodor Dostoevsky, the visiting professor from Russia, who teaches a specialty class on how different translations change the meaning of a work. The class is completely full.
  • Annabel Lee, the encouraging, sweet professor who teaches English 1, the composition class required for gen ed. Most of her students are freshmen.
  • H.G. Wells, the creative writing professor you want to get. He always encourages his students to be as creative and imaginative as possible, but he still manages to give them constructive criticism. His science fiction class is always full.
  • Lenore, isn’t an English professor. Lenore teaches History of Fashion, among other things. But she’s helped Oscar with costuming on a few plays, and she’s currently working with Mary Ann Evans on a specialty class that focuses on the ways that clothing plays a part in literature. She hangs out in the English department a lot, because her office is in the history department, and history professors “are, like, totally boring.”
