Prompt: #16 with Shiro comforting pidge after a mission that scared/upset her. Gen

It’s the 1000 Followers Special!  Based on these prompts.  Prompts are now closed.  Don’t want to see all 35 of these?  Block ‘1000 Followers Special’.  Can’t read on mobile?  These will slowly be posted to AO3 starting in a few days as ‘Hold Up Half the Sky’.  A huge thank you to Xagrok for the beta’ing!

It was the sounds that caught Shiro’s attention.

Peering down the other hall, Shiro frowned.  At this time of night, there shouldn’t have been anything that cause strange noises like that.  From the rec room, Shiro could see just a sliver of light on the bottom, flashing and changing colors rapidly.

Something on TV, then.  Shiro sighed and made his way down that way.  Hopefully, Lance and Hunk hadn’t gotten distracted during one of their movie marathons again.  Neither of them had kept track of the time, and so when Shiro walked in on them at 4 AM, they’d been stunned. And the next morning, they’d both been utter wrecks.

As he moved closer, Shiro realized the odd noises were old school video game sound effects.  When he tapped on the console, the door swung open quietly, and Shiro could see the tops of a couple curls poking over the top.

Pidge, then.

Leaning over the back of the couch, Shiro tapped on the top of her head.  He hadn’t thought he was being particularly stealthy, but the noise of the game must have covered his footsteps, because Pidge jolted and tried to throw the controller in sheer reflex.  It was yanked to a stop from the cord to the console, and instead it fell right back down into the couch.

“Good reaction time, but I’d prefer to see it in the morning,” Shiro joked, lips curled up.

Then he finally met Pidge’s eyes, and saw how red rimmed they were.

Oh, no.

sakura walks into naruto’s office, ready to sweet talk and/or bully him into approving the purchase of a new piece of equipment for her lab, but finds the hokage missing. instead, however, she finds her husband. he leans against the edge of naruto’s desk, his arms crossed as he seems to wait for naruto as well.

“hello,” sakura greets. she grins because she didn’t expect her husband to return for another few days. “now you’re not the one i was going to coerce into approving my updated budget.”

“coerce, huh?” 

sakura approaches her husband and stops a few feet away from him. he reaches out though and she meets him halfway. when her hand is in his, he tugs her closer until she’s standing between his legs.

his hand slides along her arm and then onto her hip. he smirks a little when he lets his touch slip lower. 

“i assure you i won’t be coerced, mrs. uchiha,” he drawls, “but i’m sure i can be…convinced.”

A thing on double coats and summer heat

So, I have a double coated dog. And I’ve lived with some smooth coated dogs. Based on this vast number of samples (four dogs total) I have reached some scientific (anecdotal) conclusions (observations) about how the sun affects our variously coated pets.

My sister and I discussed this last summer, as we were taking our dogs for a walk on a reasonably hot and bright day.

A little bit of background here. My sheltie, while not the fluffiest in the land, has a reasonably thick and dense coat, making her basically impervious to snow or sleet or rain or cold - I don’t think I’ve ever used clothes on her except to keep the snow from clumping. Bobby on the other hand, is a Danish-Swedish Farmdog, and a finely dressed one at that. He is not built for the cold and is not fond of rain, and in the summer, his coat is so fine you can see several of the pigment spots on his skin even when dry. On the upside, he requires no grooming whatsoever. And it definitely doesn’t preserve body temperature.
