Today is my rest day so I’ll be adding all the exercises to tomorrow :)
Briefing Cap goes beyond the line of duty to protect his country from danger. How can you go above and beyond to protect your body from feelings of low self-worth?
I constantly struggle with “You don’t ever do enough.” syndrome. I used to think it was just me. I think it happens to a lot to mamas. We have all of our everyday tasks to do as well as a never-ending should-do list. Usually once a month (go figure which time) I fall into about 3 or 4 days of feeling inadequate. –I can’t get dinner made on time. Someone’s shirt didn’t get washed in time. My house is full of clutter and I have no time to fix it. I forgot to buy milk. (good grief you’d think someone died if there’s no milk for cereal in the morning for even one day), orI don’t have any “me” time.– You get the idea.
I simply had to start cutting myself some slack. I am the one who has created those pressures. I have placed such high expectations on myself for no reason other than I am ridiculous. So, I started making lists (I love lists :)
1 major house job, or errand, to accomplish and 3 smaller chores that should not take more than 10 minutes a piece. I also use my whiteboard and just keep a running “wish list” of other tasks that I would like to do, but won’t lose sleep if it doesn’t get done for a few days.
This seems to be working for me for the most part right now. Obviously there is an off-day somewhere in there. But, no one is mentally on their game 100% of the time. It’s just not possible. What counts is picking yourself up and choosing how you will respond to your feelings the following day :)

Strawhats + law reactions to their s/o wanting a child?
Bruh, cutest thing evah, thanks for the request <3
“A kid, Luffy”
He scratched the back of his head “Well, I mean is now the best time? I know you’ve been wanting one but can’t we wait a few more years?” He chuckled nervously and avoided his s/o’s withering eye contact. He heard them get up and before he knew it he was face to face with a glare that could kill the average person.
“Listen here you rubber boy, a year ago you promised me a kid and here I am asking again, if i have to ask one more time i swear to god i’ll go find someone that’ll give me one!” His s/o curled back their lip and grabbed his shirt shaking him violently.
“OKAY OKAY!!” He was released and collapsed onto the bed behind him. His s/o smiled sweetly.
“Good, now we can start tonight” They purred, a mischievous glint in their eyes as they straddled his waist. Luffy gulped, why did he have to be such a push over?
He rolled off his s/o panting. Before he could even catch him breath his s/o was straddling his waist.
“Round 10, come on dont tell me you’re tired already” His s/o said kissing his neck.
Zoro rolled them off of him and before they could protest he put his fingers to their lips.
“Whats going on? You’ve been more….fervent lately…not that i’m complaining” He added quickly. He looked over at his s/o, tears rolled down their cheeks and his mouth fell open. Did he say something wrong?!
“I-I told you i’m not complaining” He said quickly scooting over and putting his arm around them, awkwardly patting their back.
“It’s not that” They said hiccuping. “I…I just i’ve been trying to have a kid with you for awhile now and…and..nothings happened, I think something might b-be wrong with m-me” They finally got it out and sobbed into his chest. Zoro sat there shocked. A kid? That’s what this whole thing had been about?
Zoro sighed “Babe, is that all?”
“IS THAT ALL!? ZORO I JUST TOLD YOU I WANTED TO HAVE A KID AND THATS WHAT YOU SAY!?”
He grimaced and tried again. “I mean, If you wanted one you should have told me, I…I’m not all for the idea right now but that doesn’t mean i wont warm up to it okay? We can try again next month okay?”
His s/o nodded and wiped their face on his shirt
Zoro layed down next to his s/o and wrapped his arms around their waist. As their breathing began to slow and become even he spoke softly into their ear.
“I want a girl”
“Usopp quit it” his s/o growled.
Sniper King sweat dropped “I-I uh dont know what you mean!” He said slowly scooting over to the door.
His s/o sighed, once the word ‘baby’ came out of their mouth Usopp had a freaking panic attack and changed into his other persona and claimed Usopp was ‘off on another island’
“Well you tell Usopp that when he comes back he better have diapers in one hand and a crib in the other BECAUSE I’M GOING TO HAVE A BABY WHETHER HE LIKES IT OR NOT!!” His s/o screeched and stormed out the room.
Usopp collapsed onto the floor and took off his mask.
“I should have never told her/him that I thought babies were cute”
“I want a baby”
“I want a baby”
They bother blinked at each other. Did they really just say that at the same time!?
“YOU WANT A BABY!?” His s/o yelled jumping into his arms.
“NOTHING WOULD MAKE ME HAPPIER THAN HAVE A CUTE LITTLE BABY RUNNING AROUND CALLING ME PAPA!”
“LETS START RIGHT AWAY!”
“WILL YOU GUYS GET A ROOM DAMNIT SOME PEOPLE ARE EATING!” Zoro yelled as the rest of the crew stopped mid chew to stare at the couple in the kitchen.
“How do you make a baby?” Luffy asked. Cue face palms.
“How many baby reindeer’s are in a liter” His s/o asked casually.
“Just one, they are pregnant for about 230 days” he said bent over a medical book.
“Oh I see, oh by the way chopper I bought a crib is that okay?”
“Yes thats fine”
“Also some diapers and what not”
“Yeah yeah sounds good”
“WHY WOULD YOU NEED THOSE THINGS!” He yelled his eyes popping out of his head.
“No reason” his s/o said with a wink and walking out the door.
“YOU CANT JUST WALK AWAY WAIT!” Chopper yelled running after them. Oh what had he gotten himself into.
They sat side by side on the bed silent. His hand found his s/o’s.
“And you’re sure its impossible?” His s/o whispered and he swore his heart broke. His s/o had walked into their room happy as ever and expressed that they had talked to Chopper who said the best time to have a baby were the upcoming months. Brook had froze and told them to sit down. He explained to them that after he got hit by the sea train and had to re-invent his whole front half, including his, uh, man parts. There was no way he could ever have a biological kid.
“I’m sure, i’m sorry” he felt his s/o sob and he quietly wrapped his arms around them. He knew they wanted a kid, so did he, he would make sure they would have a better childhood then he had.
His s/o wiped their eyes and smiled softly up at him and gave him a hug.
“It’s okay Franky, we can always adopt?” they said.
“yeah, we can always adopt” he said softly, cradling their body into his, he wanted to give them everything and anything, and the one thing they wanted he couldnt give them. He cried into their shoulder.
“It’s okay Franky, even if we adopt I know you’ll treat the kid like your own”
Franky sniffed and nodded. “Can we name them Cutty flan Iceber jr?”
“….we’ll talk about it later”
“OOoohh what about this one? this ones cute?” Brook said pointing.
“Brook we are picking out a CHILD, not a puppy” His s/o huffed. It was wasn’t new that Brook could no WAY have a child the old fashioned way. So at the next island they went to the adoption house and looked around to see if this is what they really wanted to do.
His s/o turned around and saw multiple kids climbing all over Brook who was doing some weird dance and making them laugh.
Yeah, this was a good idea.
She held onto the sides of the sink and looked into the mirror. What was wrong with her? Every time she saw a kid a knot would wind into her stomach. And everyone she saw parents laughing she would smile.
What was this again? baby fever? she didnt look like she had a fever.
Someone knocked on the door and her s/o walked in.
“Hey you okay?’
She nodded “Yeah it’s just i’ve been thinking”
She heard her s/o take in a breath and she turned around into a pair of arms.
“I thought you’d never ask” Her s/o said smiling.
“I NEVER ASKED!”
“oh…well, wanna start tonight?”
Nami smiled and nodded her head. She would have to talk to chopper about that fever though.
She looked over at her naked s/o and smiled softly. After expressing her concerns on having a child her s/o took it all in stride and began to work with her thoroughly on having a child.
What she was really looking forward to was pampering her kid with whatever they wanted and being the best mom ever.
Her s/o rolled over and wrapped their arms around her waist.
And she knew they would make a good parent as well.
“So it looks like in the next week is when you’ll be ovulation” Law said reading the charts as his s/o layed there on the table.
“Are you sure you want this?” his s/o said from the table, her hands clasped over their stomach.
“Is this what you want?” he asked and they nodded “Then it’s what I want to” Law said firmly.
His s/o sat up and kissed him on the cheek before hoping off the table. He watched them put their pants back on and he smiled to himself. To have a kid with his s/o? Nothing could be better, he would protect both of them. The only worry he had was if his bad genes would pass into his child, would have have a disease like him? he hoped not. His s/o waved goodbye and the left the room leaving Law to his thoughts.
He looked again at the charts and sighed. She had actually already ovulated, two weeks ago to be precise but he lied.
Because right now, with the fear of passing on his disease to his offspring gave him no console. He put his head in his hands and groaned. He hated lying to his s/o especially since they wanted a child so bad but he couldnt do it, not yet anyway.
He crumbled up the charts and threw them away. They didn’t need to know just yet.
Anyone who has followed my blog since the beginning knows that I was a VERY strict band blog and that these bands were all I cared about. Things have changed, and don’t dress this way anymore but these bands were such a huge part of my life, I can’t just throw them away. I want them to go to someone who will appreciate them as much as I did.
So I’m giving away merch from:
motionless in white
pierce the veil
sleeping with sirens
of mice & men
miss may I
the devil wears prada
bring me the horizon
and some batman stuff
These are mostly old shirts that you can’t buy anymore, and things from tours that you wouldn’t be able to get anywhere else. Some shirts have been cut into tank tops, and they’re mostly mediums, but there are smalls and larges as well. It’s free clothes, guys.
You don’t have to follow me but if you do that would be sweet. Just reblog this, likes don’t count. I’ll pick a winner on July 6th 2015.
The other day I saw a group of guys wearing bowling shirts walking towards me. Upon closer inspection, the team name was Wesley's Crushers and embroidered on the shirt, where the alligator or horse might be for Lacoste/Polo, was a tiny little you - as a child, in a Starfleet uniform. Seriously regret not getting a photo. The attention to detail was impressive, but did leave me wondering where the hell do you find someone to hand embroider tiny Wil Wheatons on bowling shirts in bulk?
I really need to have this. GET TO WORK, INTERNET!
There was another party tonight, a frat party. Honestly, I
didn’t really want to go but all my finals were over, and my friends were all
going so I said fuck it.
I got changed, not actually putting much thought into my
outfit, simply changing my shirt to a crop top and put some high waisted shorts
on. I texted my friends, letting them now that I was ready and soon we were all
headed to the party together.
“I wanna get shit faced tonight.” My friend, Amy, said as we
walked in. “And hook up with someone.” She added, looking at everyone in the party.
I snorted at her words as we made our way through the frat
house. “What? Don’t laugh at me Y/N. You should hook up with someone too; you’ve
been studying to hard lately. You need to relax.” She drawled out and handed me
a cup filled with an unknown liquid. I drank it, happy with the taste.
We stayed together
for the first bit, talking to each other and getting to see who was here. “Oh,”
She nudged my shoulder. “I’ll see you later.” She walked over to a group of
people, some of which I had no idea who they were. I laughed into my drink when
she started to clearly flirt with I guy I knew she thought was hot. Go Amy.
“Why are you standing here all alone?” I heard someone say
from behind me. I turned around and saw Luke Hemmings coming to stand next me,
a cup in his hand as well. He had on a snapback, covering his usually blond
up-do, a black tank top and jeans, with sunglasses hanging off his neck.
I didn’t know him that well, I had one class with him and we
didn’t talk that much. I’m pretty sure that this was his frat house though. “My
friend ditched me.” I laughed.
“That’s too bad. But I guess that means that you’re stuck
with me for now.” He said with a small smirk, bumping his shoulder with mine.
I always felt conceited when I thought this, but I’m pretty
sure that he was hitting on me. “Really and how long do you think I’m going to
be stuck with you?”
“However long you want me around.” He teased back. I nodded
and laughed, and finished off the rest of my drink. He immediately offered me another
one, and again, I said fuck it and agreed.
I ended up hanging out with Luke for most of the night; we
stood around, then sat around, and then stood again. I don’t know where Amy had
gone, I saw her a little while ago but I don’t know where she had gone now.
“What?” I asked Luke, seeing his lips move but not being
able to hear what he had told me. I think the music had gotten even louder, and
more people had piled into the house making it louder than it should be.
He leaned in closer so that I could hear him. “You wanna go
outside, its quieter out there.”
I nodded, and followed him out the door. The sun had already
set, but it was still light enough to see. It was also much quieter.
“C’mere.” He said, leading me around the house. There was a
small garden type thing; I didn’t even know that they gad gardens. Okay, it was
more of a patch of grass and some bushes surrounded by trees, but I was still
“Is this where you bring all your girls?” I teased, looking
around. He laughed and followed me. “You got me there Y/N.”
“You know there’s one thing that I regret this year.” Luke
told me, putting down his empty cup on a cheap looking lawn chair. “And what’s
that?” I asked, noticing how he didn’t stop walking in closer to me.
“We didn’t get to hangout more.” He said, a smile breaking
out on his face. He looked down at his feet, and if I knew him better I would
say that he was nervous.
“Smooth, Hemmings.” I said, similar smile lining my own
“I try.” He shrugged. I think he was going to kiss me, I was
almost a hundred percent sure of it. Honestly, I wanted him to kiss me. Either
the alcohol had gotten to me, or I just really missed a guy but all night I’ve
been starring at his lips and imagining the feeling of them on me, really
wanting to know how his lip ring would feel against my lips.
Before he could make a move, someone called his name making
him turn his head around, away from me. “Hemmings! C’mon, we’re playing a
little game inside.”
He looked at me, and I shrugged and followed him back
inside. Turns out, that “little game” was an altered game of truth or dare, one
of those alterations being that no one who was playing was 12.
Luke sat down with everyone on the floor, looking up at me
and patting the spot next to him. I laughed and sat down next to him. Now that
I looked around, I had realized that I found Amy. She was sitting on that guys
lap, the guy she was flirting with earlier on.
They were spinning a bottle in the middle of the circle, and
honestly I was really happy that I had nothing to do with it yet. Of course,
that was until Amy spun it and it landed right on me. I inwardly groaned; the
fact that we were close friends made it worse because she knew what would piss
me off. And, I’m pretty sure she was drunk.
“Y/N, truth or dare?” She asked, smirked on her lips. I
quickly thought it over. “Dare.” I said, as confidently as I could. If I said
truth she would make me confess something embarrassing to all these people, something
that she already knew.
“I dare you,” She trailed off, looking around. “To play a
game of too hot with Hemmings.”
Maybe it would have been better to have picked truth. “What?
I uh-“ I glanced over at him, and he had the same facial expression as how I
“No Y/N. Rules are rules. Remember, first one to use hands
loses.” She said. Yep, she was drunk and I was going to hurt her later. Sure, I
wanted to kiss Hemmings but not like this, in front of all these people.
I let out a sigh, I turned my head to look at Luke. I kept
my hands by my sides, actually trying to win. I leaned in, we were already
close enough that our arms were touching, so now that we were closer together our
He leaned in to connect our lips, and it came as a small
shock, even if I don’t know what I was anticipating. His lips were soft against
my own, not applying a lot of pressure but his lipring was hard and cold, but
oddly felt nice.
I pressed myself closer to him, applying more pressure. I
felt his tongue poke into my mouth, and I think he shifted closer to me so that
our chests were basically pressed up together. We were both turned, bodies
twisted awkwardly so I detached our lips for a brief second to swing my legs
over his own, straddling him.
My hands were still at my side, but they were digging into
my things, itching to run my fingers through his hair. I pulled back again,
tugging his bottom lip between my teeth. A small groan escaped the back of his
throat, and he moved his head in closer to mine to press up closer to me again.
He tried to move in closer, moving my hips against his.
Next thing I knew, I felt a pair of hands grip at my waist,
moving up to my neck. His fingers toyed with my hair, and I heard a few people
say something about the game being over but that didn’t stop us. He pulled
away, but resting his forehead against mine, breathing heavily.
“I guess I won.” I whispered, moving off of him. “I guess
you did.” He said, as I sat back down next to him. I saw Amy wink at me from
across the room, and I rolled my eyes.
The game kept going, but Hemmings leaned in. “I’ll be back
in a sec.”
I was confused to see him go, but Amy got my attention from
across the room, and she nodded her head towards where Luke had left, moving
her hand up and down, in what people would say a handjob motion. I shook my
head, flipping her off.
He can laugh and his tongue sticks out of the side and its freaking adorable.
then he puts on a plaid shirt. I’m just saying Phil in plaid has probably caused someone to pass out because he’s so fucking good looking.
ANDD do not get me started on Phil in glasses. I know he doesn’t like wearing them but he looks like one of those guys you see in the back of a coffee shop reading a book and you think about him till you fall asleep.
He is a literal ray of sunshine. If I’m sad and I watch one of his videos I feel so much better. He has to be an angel because somebody this wonderful is nearly impossible to find.
I firmly believe he saved Dan on some level and I need Dan just as much as I need Phil. So thank you Phil for helping Dan the way you did. You are the best friend people would kill for.
Phil cares so much about his viewers he literally sees us as his family.
The fact he tries to not curse because he doesn’t want to influence his young viewers is freaking amazing.
I really wish I could word this better because this doesn’t give Phil justice at all.
I want Phil to know he matters because he matters beyond belief.
I may be having one of my Phil days, This could be because I just watched ‘trapped in my jeans’ which is my favorite Phil video. I don’t know but Phil if you see this I hope you know how important I and so many more think you are thank you for everything you’ve done Phil <3
It would be just my luck to shake a water bottle that had one of those fruit punch powder packets in it and the cap not be all the way on. It doesn’t help with the fact my shirt is white. Pretty sure I could get away with telling people I murdered someone now. Someone better bail me out of jail later.
Calum sat up… wait why was he lying down in the first place?! And where was he? He was suppose to be in a small computer room in the middle of North Weald, how di…
“Oh you have got to be kidding me…” He looked around and saw it, Fuyuki bridge. He could only assume that him a Julius has swapped places. “You have go to be kidding me… well at least I have my clothes.”
He unzipped his crimson hoodie. “At least the powers that be gave me my Deadman Wonderland t-shirt…” He quickly zipped up his hoodie and checked his pockets. “My iPod, key, wallet, earphones and a £10 note. Yeah, British money will help here.” He sighed.
“Now… um.. how do I get back home? Someone, anyone, help?”
I am straight (please don't hate me for that I get it a lot) and I was wondering if you sold other dragon t-shirts as I love your Pride ones but wouldn't want to wear them because I am not what they represent or fear offending someone who is of that pride. ...if that makes sense.
That makes sense, I think it’s good that you’re mindful of that sort of thing!
I do not currently have other t-shirt designs available, but it’s definitely something I want to do in the future. One concept I have considered, for example, is a series called “Forces of Nature,” with dragons (and possibly other mythical creatures) based on natural phenomenon like thunderstorms or the aurora borealis. I can’t say for sure when this will happen or if this will be the concept I use, but I think it’s safe to assume there will be more dragon t-shirts at some point in the future. :)
I did a photo project called “The Man Makes the Clothes” it’s a play on Mark Twain’s quote. “The clothes make the man. A naked man has litte or no influence on society.” & I disagree. Nowadays in society, people often get judged by outer appearance. And especially for me being a black man, if I’m waking down the street in some sweats & a shirt, I’ll get judged or even overlooked. But if I’m walking down the street with a suit on, I’ll get stereotyped as, “important” or like “oh yeah this guy is about something.” Or something of that nature. And my whole motive with this project is to change people’s perspectives to not judge someone by what’s on the surface. Someone could be an awesome individual, but majority of people wouldn’t give them the time of day because of what they look like or what they’re wearing. But if you take the clothes off the man, they are the same person… BLACKOUT.
OK I’m positive someone else has posted photos from “Accidents Happen” starring Geena Davis. I found a DVD for $4.99 at a convenience store and thought why not. NP plays ‘Young Man at Bingo’ and rocks a rather unfortunate shirt. (I’m sure that’s what the post was about too.) Anyway, he does his American accent and I thought it was perfectly fine. The movie was OK, but I wouldn’t rush out to get it.
His lines were: Excuse me. Is there a Gloria Conway here? You have a phone call. Follow me. It’s out the back.
First it’s not what you think, but go there anyway. First pic would be anyone of us if NP walked into our bingo hall. Second is an attempt at a close up smile - trust me it took many attempts. Third is NP being a gentleman (and us watching him go).
ok someone was like, a Ronan/Blue get-along shirt wouldn’t work because of their height but hear me out:
Gansey decides that a get-along shirt is a good idea after Blue and Ronan have another half hour long bickering session.
Blue and Ronan are not happy but, you know what, okay, we’ll get along. and then Ronan picks Blue up by the waist and they chase Gansey around Monmouth all afternoon pretending to be a two headed monster.
// Cameron and Indigo are step siblings with benefits, they help each other out in times of need, no feelings involved. But when Cameron starts falling for Indigo, things get messy and people get hurt. //
A faint sound of someone knocking the door caused me to look up from my laptop and sigh. I pushed myself off the bed and made sure I looked presentable before I opened the door. It was 10.17am and I was wearing a my coca-cola shirt and a pair of shorts.
“Good morning newly weds,” I greeted the two adults standing behind the door and moved to the left so they could come inside.
“Hey honey,” Dad replied while taking a seat on the couch. “Everything okay?” He asked. I nodded and closed the door behind me.
“So what’s up?” I asked, slightly annoyed by the fact that my anime marathon was disturbed. Dad and Gina looked at each other and smiled nervously at me. Something felt wrong.
“Honey, I know this might come as a shock and I you might be upset about this but um…” I held my breath, expecting the worst. “We’re moving to L.A.?” He sounded slightly unsure. The two of them watched my expression closely, trying to decipher the meaning behind the look on my face that was a mixture of shock, disbelief, sadness, anger, frustration and a (tiny) pinch of excitement.
“Oh. Aha wow but like no thank you? I was born and raised in New York and I plan on living there until I die, like mom.” I laughed as if it was the funniest thing on the planet. “You could move here with Gina and whoever and I’ll just stay in Manhattan with grandma. That’ll be fine, right dad?” Dad furrowed his eyebrows and frowned at me.
Indigo, we are moving to L.A. I am not going to leave you alone in New York-”
“I’ll be fine with grandma!” I interrupted.
“Indigo! I’ve spent 19 years doing everything I could to keep you happy. Can’t you do this one thing for me?” He pleaded. I was at a loss for words when everything he said finally sank in. He did do everything for me all these years. But I refused to face the music.
“You’re asking me to leave behind everything I know for you? I have rights,dad. I’m almost 20, I’m practically an adult! I can do whatever I want with my life!” Gina shifted uncomfortably in her spot next to dad on the couch. I felt bad for her and embarrassed by how rude and bratty I probably looked while defying my father.
“Stop exaggerating, Indigo. It’s not like we’re never going back there again! I’m sorry but the universe doesn’t revolve solely around you.” he spat bitterly. Ouch.
Frustrated, I stormed out of the room and took the elevator down to the pool. A couple of kids were splashing each other with water while their mom laughed and took pictures of them. How I wished I had my mom right there and then. She would know what to say to make me feel better, she always does. I plopped down on one of the deck chairs and started thing about the time a girl in my class broke three of my coloured pencils and I was really sad about it and mom said “Hey, at least she didn’t break your bones! Then you’d be all wobbly and squishy.” I remember my 5 year old self laughing so hard i choked.
Mom passed away when I was six. She died of leukemia but she was still the same cheerful person she was during her last few days. I was the only child so I had no one other than my dad to rely on when mom passed away.
Dada took three moths off work, doing nothing other than taking care of me and grieving when I’m in school. Sometimes he would sit in front of the television for hours, watching old videos of mom from their high school days till my sixth birthday (he still does once in a while) and sometimes I still hear him crying in his room.
Despite all this, he still kept a brave face for me, for us. I realised that dad scarified almost everything he had for me. He started working from home so he could look after me and he rarely went out with his friends because he didn’t want to leave me alone with anyone else (”You’re all I have left, Indi. I can’t lose you, not after your mother,”he always said.) He made me and my happiness his main priority in life for almost 20 years. Why won’t I do the same thing for him?”
“Indigo, honey?” I turned around and saw my dad. I rubbed my eyes furiously, trying to erase all proof of me crying just seconds before. “Indigo I’m sorry. I should’ve discussed this with you first,” he said softly.
“No dad, I’m sorry. I’ve been so selfish the entire time. You’ve done so many things for me, it’s time I return the favour. If moving here is what you want, then okay. I guess I was to shocked to think straight.”
“Really? You’d do that, Indi?” I nodded and hugged his tall frame. “Thank you, baby.”
I pulled away and smiled at him. “No dad, thank you.”
Wait, but living in L.A. meant living with Cameron. The hideous thoughts from last night corrupted my mind once again. Just then, Cameron appeared at the pool. The top half of his body was exposed and he had a towel thrown over his shoulder. I rolled my eyes when he smiled and waved at us.
“He’s a good kid,” dad smiled. I snorted.
“Suuree he is.”
<A/N> Hello!! Thank you all for the great response so far, I’m really happy okay!! I wrote this chapter at 3am today because I couldn’t sleep ): There’s not much of Cameron in here, mainly Indigo and her dad, but there will be a lot of tension between Cam and Indigo in the next few chapters so stay tuned folks!!! And stay hydrated because it’s important and drinking water makes your hair and skin look and feel nice!
Ok but can you imagine trying to tell Luke you’re pregnant in a really funny way and he’s just being his slow self and not getting it. Imagine finding out you’re pregnant, so to surprise Luke with the happy news you get him a tshirt with the words «hemmo2015» and he’d be like «babe I think they made a mistake.» and you’re looking at him like «are you fucking kidding me?». So he’d be staring at the shirt and be like «it’s supposed to say 1996 cause that’s when-» and he’d just stop and look at you and go «you’re pregnant aren’t you?» so you’ll nod and he’ll laugh because he totally blew it but then he starts crying because he’s gonna be a dad and I’m sobbing someone hold me
raleigh becket growing up getting into just as many fights as her brother, coming home from school with scrapes all up her legs cause the boys tried to keep her off their sports teams. she handwrites out a copy of title IX and keeps it in her backpack, clumsily cuts off her own ponytail in the mirror the first time her hair gets in her face during a hockey match.
“raleigh sweetie you can’t go swimming without a shirt on, also it’s December”
“whatever mom, if you want me i will be playing underwater chicken in a hole that my brother and I cut in the ice in our backyard”
america’s little sister, america’s tomboy, and the first time someone is like “what if you only like boy things because you picked them up from your brother in the drift” she shuts that down so fast.
people expect her to stick around after her brother’s death because of how female grief is considered public property, to be shy and vulnerable in the public eye and then find a nice man who can heal her wounds and also convince her to put some makeup on. she plays the game for a few months to pull in donations for the Jaeger program but then she can’t take it anymore.
raleigh is a boy’s name too, right? women aren’t allowed to work on the Wall, but her jacket is big enough that no one sees everything she keeps under it.
and then she meets Mako
and Mako doesn’t say anything about “why don’t you wear makeup” or “are you sure you’re a girl” or “do you really want to wear a suit instead of a dress for that we-saved-the-world press appearance”
they’re just what they are, whatever they are, two best friends (and Mako figures out she’s bi via watching Raleigh’s first memory of kissing a girl flash through the Drift.)
and raleigh is just like, heart eyes motherfucker, look at this gorgeous badass hard femme who can sweep me off my feet (figuratively) with a look and sweep me off my feet (literally) with just one punch
and her only regret is that Stacker isn’t there to walk Mako down the aisle at their wedding.
“Alright then. If you’re sure you wanna know” Victor’s new lover had found the riding crop in the wardrobe while looking for a shirt and it became a conversation about Victor’s past kinks.
“It’s not for BDSM.Just in case you wondered.Im not a sadist I don’t get gratification from hurting someone. Okay,here goes. To put it simply I like D/s scenes.It stands for Dominant x submissive.It’s when one, me, takes the role of the master and another takes the role of the puppy slave. And yes, that includes a collar and a leash. The crop top is used as severe punishment when the puppy disobeys. I prefer orgasm control or denial as well as forced chastity more than corporal punishment but I have had submissives that preferred a more traditional punishment like spanking or the crop. “
