in a sort of order of preference

HEADCANONS TO CONSIDER

CAN THEY USE CHOPSTICKS?
yes, but not initially. He learns pretty quickly just through observations, but you bet he tried to stab something with them first. 

WHAT DO THEY DO WHEN THEY CAN’T SLEEP:
gil voice: “what is this ‘sleep’ you speak of?”
usually read or play around with magic. he may reminisce every once in a while when it hits him.

WHAT WOULD THEY IMPULSE BUY AT THE GROCERY STORE:
anything that catches his eye, although nothing with questionable packaging.

WHAT ORDER DO THEY WASH THINGS IN THE SHOWER:
generally from top to bottom. overall he prefers baths though.

WHAT’S THEIR COFFEE ORDER:
probably changes everytime since he wants to try everything. less sugar / vanilla syrup on all orders though.

WHAT SORT OF APPS WOULD THEY HAVE ON THEIR SMARTPHONE:
if he had a phone it’d always have a lot of photography apps ( not editing ones ), a few puzzle/rpg game apps, and youtube. he’d probably download a lot of apps that look interesting to test them out and uninstall them if he finds them boring.

HOW DO THEY ACT AROUND CHILDREN:
in a way he’s quick to spoil them: giving them treats, reading to them and giving them little pieces of advice from time to time. however, when it comes to more important matters he will be strict with them.

WHAT WOULD THEY WATCH ON TV WHEN THEY’RE BORED AND NOTHING THEY REALLY LIKE IS ON:
documentaries of any kind, or fantasy genre movies.

MILES UPSHUR, a man with a tough exterior and a marshmallow heart — he cannot resist adopting stray animals off the street. unfortunately, the walrider tends to put a dent in all his dog-adopting plans, that fiend! dogs don’t like the walrider, and dogs don’t like being basically homeless ( which, let’s call a spade a spade, miles doesn’t have a permanent residence, so he is by definition homeless. ) but there is a place where they will have a home, and that is the apartment of the most gracious waylon park. now you may think waylon is too easily manipulated into adopting these dogs… and you’re right. he is. after miles leaves waylon laments being wrapped around miles’ finger and being so eager to please… but have you seen miles’ face, like really looked at it? // comic based on interpretations by @walridiing and myself

BONUS!!

this argument always follows directly after: what sort of inhumane monster would give their dog a NORMIE name? is this soviet russia? conformity is for the weak! revolution or death! miles prefers a more unique approach to naming dogs. and that is why he continues to call these dogs by their REAL names when waylon isn’t around. waylon just doesn’t have it in him to call a dog by a title that he wouldn’t even address a person by. goddamnit miles why do you give your dogs such embarrassing names.

( in order: briard is sir charles victor wooferstein VII, corgi is princess isabella camilla santiago sofia rodriguez, doberman is duke frederick james emmerson. waylon has renamed them to charley, isabella, and freddy. of course, regardless of who is calling them, they respond to both names. )

Beginner’s Guide to Sigilcraft

Sigilcraft is a form of magic that is simple yet can be tricky to get right. Here’s how to start!

First, there are a few basic things you need to know about sigils:

  1. Sigils must be written in the present tense. That’s “I do” as opposed to “I will do.” This is because when you write in future-tense, sigils don’t know when to make the thing happen. It will always just be “in the future.” When you write in present-tense, the sigil knows to make it happen ASAP.
  2. You should be as specific as possible when writing sigils. That’s “I am given a raise of at least [x amount],” as opposed to “I make more money.”
  3. Sigils need to be charged for them to work. There are lots of different ways to charge sigils, but the most basic idea behind it is that you’re putting power into it from another source. That source could be you, an electrical object, a crystal, the energy around you, etc. The possibilities are endless.
  4. There are two ways sigils can work. Sigils can either be either left to sit and draw in energy forever, which many believe equals letting them putting out that energy forever, or they can be “activated” by being destroyed. There are lots of different ways to destroy a sigil. You can do it electronically or physically, and probably even other ways I don’t personally know about. For electronically destroying sigils, something like posting them to social media and then deleting the post after leaving them to charge would work. Physical life methods would be exposing them to the elements until they’re destroyed.
  5. Above all, sigils need to look and feel right to you in order to work!

Now that that’s out of the way, you can start making sigils!

For beginners with no experience sigilcrafting, I recommend the letter-arranging method as sort of training wheels:

  1. Write out exactly what you want to have happen with your sigil. We’ll use the “I AM GIVEN A THREE DOLLAR RAISE” example.
  2. Take out the repeat letters. Some people also prefer to take out the vowels, but you can leave them in if you like. But If we take out the repeat letters and vowels, we’re left with “M G V N T H D S”
  3. Flip, rotate, and alter the look of the letters to your heart’s content, and start putting them together until they make a design that looks good and feels right to you.
  4. You’re done! Now you can charge (and if you wish, activate) it!

Once you feel you’ve got good footing in the letter-arranging method, you can start to design sigils in a more free-form way! This is where you’ll really start to discover your unique style, be it flowy, geometric, or other! You can make your sigils based on existing images or simply go with the flow of what feels right.

My style is pretty geometric. Here are some examples of my sigils:

Happy sigilcrafting!

Curious, assuming pizzas were a thing in Hyrule, what sort of pizza would Revali order?

“Run this by me again?” Your friend said. “You’re going to Paris? Randomly. By yourself?” 

“Uh…yes,” you said packing your suitcase. 

“Is it for work?” She asked. 

“No,” you said. “I’m just uh… getting out of the city.” 

“By going to another city,” she pointed out. 

“It’s Paris, it’s different,” you said. 

“Wait a minute,” she said. “This wouldn’t be a little romantic getaway with your mystery boy toy would it?” 

You bit your lip. Technically, it wasn’t because he was going there for work, however, he was extending his stay a little so that you two could have some time together. 

“OH MY GOD IT IS!” She said. 

Apparently, you waited too long to answer. 

“It’s obvious that you two are getting serious and you won’t even tell me, your best friend, who it is,” she groaned. “I’m really started to feel offended.” 

“I’m sorry, it’s just it’s complicated,” you sighed. 

“Becuase it’s someone famous and your job right?” She smirked. 

You sighed. “I’ll tell you when I can, I promise.” 

“You better,” she said. “Now, when do you leave?” 

“Tonight actually,” you said. 

“Is he going to pick you up?” She smirked. 

“No, I’m going to his house,” you said. “And we’re heading to the airport from there.”

“Damn,” she groaned. 

You laughed. “You’ll find out soon, okay.” 

“Fine, fine,” she sighed. “And while you’re being all lovey Dovey in Paris, I’ll be here watering your plants.” 

“Thank you,” you laughed. 

**

When you and Harry arrived in Paris, he arranged for you to go in a back way at the hotel, while he went through the front due to a number of fans that were waiting outside. 

You got in the room before Harry and went over to the window. You had no idea if Harry was even still down in the crowd because there were that many people down there. Your question was answered when the door opened and Harry walked in. 

“I see you made it back in one piece,” you laughed. 

“Oh, yeah,” he laughed throwing his bags down. 

“Is it always like that?” You asked. 

“Not always, but sometimes yeah,” he said. “It’s worse when they know where I’m going to be, but if I just go somewhere without having to be there for something, it’s not like that at all.” 

You nodded as Harry walked over to you and wrapped his arms around your waist and his chin on your shoulder. You smiled putting your hands on his arms and leaning back against him. 

“When’s your interview again?” you asked. 

“Tomorrow morning, so we have what’s left of the day and tonight all to ourselves,” he smiled. 

You smiled turning your face to the side and giving him a kiss on the cheek. “What should we do?” You asked. 

“Whatever you want to do,” he smiled. 

“Can we go out or are we sort of stuck inside?” You asked. 

“I’m sure we could sneak out the back,” he said. 

“Wouldn’t that be too much trouble though?” You asked. 

“I’ve been doing it for years, it’s not that bad,” he said. “Unless you would prefer to stay inside.” 

“Well, maybe we could stay in until later tonight and go out for dinner,” you said. 

“Okay, that sounds good,” he smiled. “Do you want to watch a movie?” 

“Um. We could yeah,” you said. 

“We can order some food too,” he said. 

“Sounds good because I’m starving,” you laughed. 

After ordering some food and choosing a movie to watch, you both laid on the bed. Harry wrapped his arm around you and kissed your head. 

“I’m really glad you came,” he whispered. 

“I am too,” you smiled looking up at him. 

“Have you heard anything about your job?” He whispered. 

“Nope,” you said. “And quite honestly, I’m okay with that.” 

“Have you given any more thought to quitting?” He asked. 

“No,” you sighed. “I probably should, but I still don’t know.” 

“Well, remember I can help you if you want,” he said. 

“I know,” you smiled kissing his cheek. 

You turned back to watch the movie, but he smirked and leaned over to kiss you. You laughed into the kiss. 

“I thought we were watching a movie,” you said. 

“’S boring,” he mumbled into the kiss. “This is much better.” 

You laughed wrapping your arms around his neck as he deepens the kiss. You laid back more against the bed and he ran his hands up and down your sides. He pulled away from your lips and trailed kisses down your neck as his fingers slipped under your shirt. 

Then there was a knock on the door. 

“The food,” he groaned putting his forehead on your shoulder. 

You giggled. “We’ve got plenty of time to finish where we left off after we eat.” 

He laughed giving you a quick kiss before getting up and heading over to the door. While he was getting the food, you started thinking about where you wanted to take things tonight. 

Tonight was the night that you wanted to take your relationship to the next level, you just hoped that you didn’t make a complete fool of yourself in the process. 

**

That night you had showered and changed for the big date night out. It was not only the first date in public that you and Harry were going on and it was the night you were going to bring out a little something. You put on a new bra set underneath your dress that you were wearing for tonight. 

You finished your makeup and hair and went back out into the room. Harry looked up at you as he was buttoning his shirt. 

“Wow,” he smiled. “You look… amazing.” 

“You sound so surprised,” you joked. 

“I didn’t mean it like that,” he laughed. “You always look amazing and beautiful.” 

“Thank you,” you smiled. “You don’t look so bad yourself.” 

“Only for you,” he smirked. “Gotta look good for my girl.” 

You smiled. “You know I think that’s the first time you’ve called me that.” 

“Do you like when I call you that?” He asked. 

“Yeah, I do,” you smiled. 

“Then I’ll be calling you that from now on,” he smiled. 

You laughed. “I’m okay with that,” you said. 

The two of you then went to head out the back and into a car that drove you to the restaurant. 

“Do you think we’ll be seen?” You wondered. 

“I don’t think so,” he said. “I’ve arranged for us to have a private spot in the restaurant.” 

“Thank you,” you smiled. 

“You don’t have to thank me,” he said. 

You smiled kissing his cheek. 

When you get to the restaurant, you both go inside and straight to the back room. You sit down at the table and look at the menu.  After you both order, Harry looked over at you. 

“You know it’s nice not having to hide out,” he smiled. 

You bit your lip. “Does that.. bother you?” 

“A little bit, if I’m honest,” he said. 

“I’m sorry,” you sighed. 

“It’s not your fault,” he said shaking his head. “Our circumstances are a little different than most.” 

“Do you feel like I’m ashamed of being with you or something?” You asked. 

“No, I don’t,” he said. “But sometimes it does feel like we’re always going to have to be careful with our relationship. Don’t get me wrong, I want to keep as much of our relationship private as I can, but I don’t want to have to keep it so private that we can’t even go out or be seen together.” 

“And as long as I’m still working for the magazine, we can’t be seen together,” you sighed. 

“I guess so,” he whispered. 

“Then I’ll just have to quit,” you sighed. 

“Baby, I don’t want you to that just because of me. I don’t you to feel like you have to choose between the two,” he said. 

“I’m not,” you said. “If I stay there, we’ll just keep having to hide this relationship and I don’t want to do that anymore. I can’t even tell my best friend about us and I hate lying to her. Besides it’s obvious that they don’t give a shit if I’m there or not, since they made me take these weeks off and we both know that I’m not happy there.” 

“You don’t have to make a decision right now,” he said rubbing his thumb over your hand. 

“No, I don’t, but if I keep thinking about it, I’m going to talk myself out of it because I’ll look at all the reasons why I shouldn’t leave,” you said. 

“And what are those reasons?” He asked. 

“It’s a job for one. It pays well and I have to pay rent and utilities, food, gas, etc,” you said. 

“There are other jobs that I’m sure you could find,” he said. “And I can help you out with some things if you need it. And I know what you’re going to say, but don’t think of it that way. You’re my girlfriend and I care about you, helping you out is part of my job.” 

“I know, but when you’re you, that can be taken as if I’m only with you for the money and who you are,” you sighed. 

“And who is to say that people won’t think that already, even if I don’t give you money or pay for something for you?” He asked. “People are going to judge and assume things regardless of what is actually true or not. And who would even know if I paid your rent for a few months anyhow?” 

“I don’t know,” you sighed. “No one I guess.” 

“Exactly, so baby if the only thing that you can think of as a reason to stay at this job is so that you can pay your bills, then don’t worry about it,” he said. 

“Are you sure though?” You sighed. 

“Ultimately, you leaving is your decision, but yes I’m sure if you’re sure,” he said. 

“Okay,” you smiled. “Then first thing tomorrow morning, I’m going to call my boss and tell her I’m not coming back.” 

Harry smiled. “And if you want I can call Gemma and see if she has any recommendations for you.”

“Are you sure she’ll help though? I mean she hasn’t exactly met me, but that one time and she didn’t seem to really care for me,” you said. “And does she even know that we’re together?” 

“She’ll help you out, I promise,” he said. “And she sort of knows that I’m seeing you, but not that we’re together officially.” 

You sighed looking down. “I guess I never really thought about how secret our relationship was before…” 

“Yeah,” he nodded. “But now that can change. I’m not saying that I’m gonna hold like a press conference and be like oh I have a girlfriend, here she is, but now we don't’ have to worry about hiding or not being able to go out. I can introduce you to my family and friends and you can do the same with me,” He smiled. 

“Do you worry about that though? Like what will happen once we are seen together?” You asked. 

“I won’t lie and tell you that it’s going to be all rainbows and sunshine. There will be people who don’t want us together and we’ll probably say or do things to you,” he sighed. 

You nodded. 

“But it might help to make all of your social media at first private,” he said. “That way no one can like come at you directly.” 

“Does it really get that bad?” you sighed. 

“Sometimes…” he nodded. “But I really hope that you don’t let… let that affect our relationship because I don’t know what I would do if I lost you over shit like that.” 

You sighed getting up from your seat and walking over to him. You sat down in his lap and he wrapped his arms around your waist. 

“You’re not going to lose me, okay,” you smiled. “I’m gonna be here as long as you want me because I’ve never felt like this with anyone before and I don’t ever want to lose it.” 

“Well, then I guess you’re never going anywhere because I’m going to want you around forever,” he whispered. 

You smiled as you looked down at him and gave him a kiss. After a bit, you pulled away from him. 

“Maybe we should box up the rest of the food and head back to the room, yeah?” you whispered. “We could pick up where we left off earlier?” 

His eyes widen a little and his lips turned into a bit of smirk. “Excuse me,” he said turning around to find the waiter. “Could I have the check and some to-go boxes?” 

You giggled and tried to get up from his lap, but he gently pulled you back down. The waiter brought over the check and Harry just handed him his card without even looking at the total before boxing up all the food. 

Once the check was paid for, you both got up and went back to where your car was parked. Harry helped you into the car and then got in right after you. 

**

Back up in the room, the food was put into the mini fridge, music filled the air, and candles lit up the room. You were looking out at the window at the view of the Eiffel Tower when hands were wrapped around your waist and kisses placed along the side of your neck. 

“I feel like we’re in some cheesy romance movie,” you laughed. 

“There’s nothing wrong with that,” he smiled. 

“I didn’t say there was,” you smiled. 

“So,” he said taking your hand. “Can I have this dance?” He smirked twirling you around to face him. 

You laughed with a nod and he brought you closer to him. You both swayed to the music a bit and he stared into your eyes. 

“Don’t look at me like that,” you laughed. 

“What? Why?” He laughed. 

“It makes me nervous,” you whispered. 

“I look at you like that all the time,” he smiled. 

“I know, but right now, it feels different,” you whispered. 

“Bad different?” He whispered. 

“No, good different,” you smiled. “It’s making me feel things that I’ve never felt before… things I don’t think I should be feeling right now.” 

“What do you mean?” He asked. 

“It’s nothing,” you said shaking your head. “I don’t want to freak you out.” 

“You’re going to freak me out, just tell me, baby,” he whispered. 

You sighed and looked down. “When you look at me like that, I feel like I’m falling in love with you. And that’s crazy, right? I mean we’ve only known each other for a few short weeks and we’ve only been together for half of that-”

Harry interrupted you with a kiss. Except this kiss was different. Sure you two have shared passionate kisses before, but this time, you felt the emotion coming through. It felt deeper, more connected than ever before. 

“It might be crazy,” he whispered. “But at least we’re in this crazy shit together because I’m falling in love with you, too.” 

You were smiling ear to ear as you pulled him down for a kiss. He wrapped his arms around you and lifted you up. You giggled as you held onto him and walked the two of you over to the bed. Before he placed you on the bed, he put you down and unzipped the back of your dress. You pulled it off your shoulders and let it fall to the ground. 

Harry took off his suit jacket from that night and threw it on the floor next to your dress. He looked back over at you. 

In previous relationships, you always felt nervous and uncomfortable when they looked at you before sex, but as he admired your half naked body, you never felt more comfortable in your life. 

He looked at you with love, admiration, and lust. The difference in this time and all your other relationships is that sex was just sex. You both had just been looking for a hookup, a purely physical relationship.

But this, this was more. Sure, this was mostly physical too, you both were human, but there was more behind it. There was a longing, a want to be connected. 

There was love. 

He pulled you back into his arms and he ran his hands down your arms before placing his hands with yours. 

“You’re beautiful,” he whispered in your ear before kissing down your neck. 

You tilted your head to the side and closed your eyes. You unwrapped your hands and starting unbuttoning his shirt. You pushed it down his shoulders and he helped you take it off the rest of the way. 

You ran your hands over his chest and shoulders before pulling him down for a kiss. He smiled against your lips before picking you up again. He laid you down on the bed and ran his hands up your sides. When he pulled away from your lips, he kissed down your neck and rest of your body. 

He then sat up and took off his jeans before joining you back on the bed. You smirked and pushed him down on the bed before straddling him. He put his hands on your hips and you unclasped your bra. He sat up a bit and kissed you. You ran your fingers through his hair as you kissed him back. 

You smirked a bit and moved your hips back and forth causing him to groan. 

“You’re not the only that can play that game,” he smirked pulling away from the kiss and trailed kisses down your neck before paying extra attention to your bare chest. 

**

When you both had finished, you laid together in a sweaty, heavy breathing mess. Even though you two were burning up, you stayed wrapped up together with nothing but a sheet barely covering you. The only thing you could hear was the music in the background and your breathing. 

You both were looking out the huge window that overlooked the city of Paris from the bed and Harry’s fingers were roaming their way around your naked back. 

“You okay?” he whispered kissing your head. 

“I’m more than okay,” you giggled. “What about you?” 

“Incredible,” he laughed. “This view is amazing.” 

“Yeah, it’s like you can see all of Paris from our bed,” you smiled. 

“I wasn’t talking about Paris,” he whispered looking down at you. 

You looked up at him and smiled. “I’m sure I look a hot mess.” 

“Yeah, but sweaty sex hair looks good on you,” he smirked. “In fact, it makes me want to go for another round.” 

“Don’t you have an interview in the morning that you should rest up for?” You said. 

“Hmm… sleep or making love with my girl?” He whispered. “I can sleep when I’m old,” he smirked. “Now, come here.” 

You giggled as he pulled you on top of him and leaned in to kiss you. For the rest of that night, that bed wasn’t used for sleeping. You just hoped that Mr. Sleep When I’m Old wasn’t too exhausted for his big interview tomorrow, but right at that moment, you didn’t exactly care. 

misstchotchke  asked:

for the otp meme: merthur, 1-30? ^^

1) Who is the most affectionate?

Merlin’s definitely the more likely to initiate PDA. Arthur tends to get a little embarrassed by it if anyone’s around, but he always accepts it anyway cuz he can’t get enough of it. He’s just a little too repressed to reach out himself, always a tiiiny bit afraid that he’ll be rebuffed.

2) Big spoon/Little spoon?

ARTHUR IS THE LITTLE SPOON TO MERLIN’S BIG SPOON. IT MAKES HIM FEEL SAFE AND CHERISHED.

3) Most common argument?

They don’t communicate very well. They both tend to make decisions for the both of them without consulting the other, Arthur because he forgets that Merlin’s opinion might differ from his and Merlin because he just assumes he knows what Arthur’s answer will be already so doesn’t need to ask, and that doesn’t usually turn out very well.

4) Favorite non-sexual activity?

Anything that they can make into a competition, lol. They will compete on anything, like monopoly or how far they can skip rocks or who can carry more grocery bags in from the car at once, and make the most outrageous and ridiculous bets on it. The bets are a competition in and of themselves, tbh, just getting sillier and pettier every time (the number of times they have had to literally lick each other’s boots is just stupid). It’s all in good fun, tho, and there’s plenty of laughs all around either way it goes.

5) Who is most likely to carry the other?

Like literally carry? Arthur. He’s got the muscles and he can hoist Merlin up without much trouble. (Merlin can lift Arthur if he really wants to but it’s not a particularly fun or romantic experience for either of them, lol).

6) What is their favorite feature of their partner’s?

Arthur has a thing for Merlin’s hands. They’re long and nimble and gentle and strong all at once. And Merlin, for his part, just really loves Arthur’s eyes. They’re a different kind of blue than his own, a lighter clearer kind, and he loves them a lot. Arthur gets embarrassed when Merlin just wants to stare longingly into his eyes tho, sometimes that’s just too intimate (at least when he realizes that’s what’s happening, lol, other times they just get caught up in each other and don’t notice that it’s been twenty seconds since they last blinked or looked away).

7) What’s the first thing that changes when they realize they have feelings for the other?

They get awkward as fuck. Arthur is normally a very confidence person, but as soon as he’s faced with someone whose opinion he actually cares about, he gets rambly and blushy and drops things and tries waaaay too hard. Merlin’s slightly better off, but he’s twice as likely to trip on air and will cut and run (sometimes mid-sentence) if he thinks he’s making an idiot of himself.

8) Nicknames? & if so, how did they originate?

They’re not really big on nicknames. Occasionally Merlin will take a leaf out of Gwaine’s book and call Arthur princess, but he does so in full knowledge that Arthur will make him pay for.

9) Who worries the most?

Merlin is MADE of worry. It is his natural state of being and nothing can stop it. Arthur worries when they’re in dangerous circumstances of course, Merlin is his top priority then, but Merlin just worries all the time about everything.

10) Who remembers what the other one always orders at a restaurant?

That’s something Arthur makes an effort to learn and remember. It’s one of those things that he sort of considers a Boyfriend Thing, and he always feels warm and fuzzy and accomplished when it makes Merlin smile.

11) Who tops?

They switch a lot. They both have a slight preference for top!Merlin.

12) Who initiates kisses?

Merlin really really really likes kissing. He will kiss Arthur at every opportunity, will make any excuse, would happily forgo sex entirely if he could just keep kissing him. (Not that Arthur minds.)

13) Who reaches for the other’s hand first?

This ties back to that “Arthur has a thing for Merlin’s hands” thing.

14) Who kisses the hardest?

When Merlin gets on a roll, he goes hard. He spends a lot of his time playing himself off as weak, but he’s not. And when he wants something? Really wants it? He will take it.

15) Who wakes up first?

Merlin is much more of a morning person than Arthur is (if either of them can be considered as such. It’s more of a 10am vs noon kind of thing, lol).

16) Who wants to stay in bed just a little longer?

Arthurrrrr

17) Who says I love you first?

Merlin has no trouble saying it. He knows long before he lets the words out of his mouth, and he only holds them back because he knows Arthur isn’t ready to hear them yet. Even after Arthur can accept the words from Merlin, it still takes a little while before he can bring himself to say them back. He just wasn’t brought up with love being an open or obvious thing.

18) Who leaves little notes in the other’s one lunch? (Bonus: what does it usually say?)

Since Merlin’s the one who almost always makes the lunches, the notes are most commonly his. Sometimes they’re sappy. Usually they’re snarky/sarcastic/actual reminders of things he knows Arthur has forgotten he needs to do.

19) Who tells their family/friends about their relationship first?

They’re both a little reluctant at first, if only because of their widely different demographics. Merlin with the working class, Arthur the highbrow crowd. They both worry a bit how their friends will react and if they’ll be assholes about it, and Arthur especially worries about his father’s opinion. Arthur’s friends come first because Merlin refuses to be hidden, and also he’s very outspoken and in-your-face about his social position, which they like. Then come Merlin’s friends (Will thinks Arthur is a posh prick but the rest of them don’t mind him), then Hunith, and then Uther. Later. Much much later.

20) What do their family/friends think of their relationship?

It grows on them. Everyone’s a little wary of it to start with, but they prove themselves to each other’s people before too long. (Except Uther. Uther never quite warms up to Merlin completely, tho he does accept it.)

21) Who is more likely to start dancing with the other?

Arthur will totally do the whole slow-dancing-in-an-empty-room-to-no-music-just-cuz-he-wants-to-be-close thing. Just so he can get his hands on Merlin and also make him smile helplessly cuz it’s so damn sappy.

22) Who cooks more/who is better at cooking?

Arthur is not allowed in the kitchen. Not anymore.

23) Who comes up with cheesy pick up lines?

Arthur really honestly thinks his lines are smooth. Merlin never tells him otherwise cuz it is just too good and so worth the secondhand embarrassment to see Arthur look so pleased with himself.

24) Who whispers inappropriate things in the other’s ear during inappropriate times?

Meeerrrrrrliiiin. He will say anything to fluster Arthur in important meetings and make him go red in the face.

25) Who needs more assurance?

Arthur’s insecurities don’t get the best of him often, but sometimes they sneak up on him. Then he just needs a reminder or two that Merlin really likes him, not his money or his position or what Arthur can do for him. It’s hard for him to believe that anyone can love him unconditionally for him.

26) What would be their theme song?

Is that even a question? A Thousand Years. Duh.

27) Who would sing to their child back to sleep?

Hunith used to sing to Merlin when he was little, so of course Merlin does the same for his kids. Arthur rolls his eyes and says it’s silly, but it’s only a few weeks before Merlin overhears him humming while he rocks the baby back to sleep.

28) What do they do when they’re away from each other?

Pine. A lot. Talk on the phone all the damn time, so much so that it probably irritates whoever they’re with.

29) one headcanon about this OTP that breaks your heart

Arthur has a tendency to distance himself at the first sign of trouble. It’s easier than getting hurt, and it protects him from potential rejection. Merlin can’t leave him if he leaves first, and this way if Merlin does leave then at least it was HIS choice. It only takes two instance of this for Merlin to catch onto what was happening in Arthur’s head, and honestly it just made that particular argument worse because how dare he just give up on this?? How dare he not fight for them?? But after that, when he’s calmed down, he does recognize the insecurity and fear behind it and knows better how to head it off before it reaches the point where Arthur starts withdrawing.

30) one headcanon about this OTP that mends it

Merlin bites his fingernails when he gets nervous or stressed out. Arthur starts pulling his hand away from his mouth whenever he notices him doing it, holding Merlin’s hand against his chest and kissing his fingertips to convince him to stop. It sort of backfires cuz now Merlin starts nibbling on his fingers specifically to get Arthur to be so gentle and concerned with him. It’s all very sappy and sweet and this headcanon will never leave me alone.

Since I have no sense of self control clearly. Coffe shop!AU with Queliot?

Bahahaha, oh the beloved coffee shop!AU

  • Quentin is pretty sure Eliot never fucking sleeps since he’s usually there at all hours and he’s also not sure why Eliot shows up so often because like… he never brings homework? And he doesn’t use the wifi, either, but he’ll stretch out on a couch sometimes and read a book like he belongs in a painting.
  • After a few weeks of Eliot drifting in and out of the coffee shop like some grand overseer, a girl walks in one day and plants her hands on her hips before looking around and stalking over to Eliot, who seems mildly exasperated at having to close his book. Quentin assumes her to be Eliot’s girlfriend because pretty people date each other and Quentin admits they are both very pretty. He’s absolutely sure of it because he’s been totally staring at them and ends up feeling embarrassed when he doesn’t look away fast enough and the pair catches him staring.
  • When the girl drags Eliot over to the counter, she gives him a once over and announces ‘unless you allow ordering off the menu here, give me a triple, venti, half-sweet, non-fat, caramel macchiato and we’re done.’. Quentin stares for a moment and Eliot makes a face over her shoulder and Quentin decides not to think too hard about it.
  • Eliot, in comparison to the girl Q finds out is just a friend, doesn’t have terribly complicated coffee preferences. He likes hazelnut lattes with almond milk or ‘coffee as black as sauron’s soul’. There is no in between and Quentin is determined if he just squints hard enough at Eliot when he strolls in, he’ll learn what sort of coffee time it is just from his appearance.
  • Quentin sort of loathes when he works early mornings because of the rush crowd. Eliot likes when Quentin works early morning and sometimes gets a muffin before retreating to sit on a couch or a chair. Eliot stops in during the early mornings after he’s pulled an all-nighter on something (or someone, whoops) and normally he leaves immediately if Quentin isn’t there. Quentin, for what it’s worth, has absolutely no clue that Eliot only sticks around when he’s working.
band of brothers Valentine’s Day AU

since it’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow so I thought why not?

winnix

  • okay Lewis Nixon would definitely be that Extra Boyfriend™ who goes big on everything just because it’s Valentine’s Day.
  • big bouquet of roses? checked.
  • big fluffy teddy bear? checked.
  • humongous heart-shaped chocolate? checked.
  • he knows that he doesn’t have to do all of this because what he and Dick have is more than just material possession.
  • but it’s nice to splurge once in a while for his husband – to be sappy without having to find any silly excuses because it is Valentine’s.
  • and though Dick always sighs at the extravagant spending, he still smiles softly at Lew, still takes everything with open arms; leaning in to kiss Lewis on the lips and whispering, “Happy Valentine’s Day. I love you.”

baberoe

  • that couple who lowkey celebrates Valentine’s Day at home together because they want to enjoy each other’s company.
  • Gene cooks special dinner for them.
  • he even asks the recipe from his Mama and forbids Babe from entering the kitchen because something will definitely burn if he’s there.
  • so Babe waits by queuing up all the cheesy romantic movies for them to watch after the dinner.
  • he even builds pillow fort and wraps fairy lights all over the sofa which might be dangerous but Gene hasn’t seen it yet so he’s not gonna take it down because it’s pretty.
  • it’s a lowkey celebration.
  • a home-cooked meal made with love, and snuggling against each other underneath the warm blanket while watching The Princess Bride.
  • it’s simple and it’s happiness because he is with Gene.

speirton

  • Ron wants to book the whole fancy restaurant because 1. he has shitloads of money, 2. he wants to have a nice dinner with Carwood and no one else should interrupt their nice Valentine’s Day dinner.
  • except the restaurant refuses to entertain his request because Ron isn’t the only want who wants to celebrate the holiday, thank you very much.
  • so Ron packs an emergency basket fills with good food and even great booze and load them and Carwood in the car to go somewhere.
  • somewhere turns out to be that stunning place on the hill overlooking the city – beautifully lit by all the bright lights.
  • but for Ron, nothing is ever as beautiful as Carwood’s smile when he leans in to kiss Ron and murmuring “I love you” on his mouth.

luztoye

  • George owns a flower shop in the busy street business district.
  • he’s a certified florist with all the fancy training but he hates Valentine’s Day with passion because it’s the busiest day of the year which means he cannot take a day off to celebrate it.
  • he has to sort out all of the orders and arranges flowers according to the customers’ preference even when he has three workers to help him around.
  • honestly, all he wants to do is scream FUCK VALENTINE’S! and close the damn shop for the day but the money is good for the business so he grits his teeth and works on the bouquets.
  • but his boyfriend is even better.
  • because in the midst of people walking in to buy last minute flowers to declare their undying love for their significant others; Joe walks in with determine steps; looking all sharp in his suits, carrying two boxes of takeout from the Chinese place George loves so much.
  • and okay fuck the flowers because what’s the point of hiring these kids to help out if he wants to do all the work because look, Joe is here with food and he looks so good to be the dessert and these orders can wait because he has a boyfriend to make out with.

  • so no thanks. he will not celebrate Valentine’s Day even when he has a fiance.

  • “so you don’t want this?“
  • you guys should also know that Liebgott has made it his mission to knock off Webster from his I’m Too Good For This Shit high horse and he’s using the shark plushy as a bait by shaking the soft toy to entice his fiance.
  • the fucker.
  • Webster knows Lieb knows that he cannot say no to anything shark.
  • it pains him to do it but he snatches the shark plushy right from Lieb’s hand and cuddle it protectively; ignoring Lieb’s wide smirk of triumph but tilting his face up when Lieb leans in to kiss Webster softly on the mouth, murmuring “Happy Corrupt Capitalist-Oriented Day. I love you, nerd.”
Day6 Mafia!au

Jae

-          In charge of arranging deals and working with any relations with other gangs and such

-          Has that very casual, unshakeable, chill persona

-          For some reason, he usually has something in his mouth, whether it’s a cigarette (don’t smoke, kids), a snack, or a lollipop (yes, a lollipop)

-          Most people when they first meet him, they kind of question whether he’s really capable of dealing with serious issues, but he never fails to impress

-          Actually a very organized, street smart guy

-          Deals with the toughest of situations without a hitch

-          Sungjin’s right hand man and advisor

-          Dresses very nice, but casual at the same time. Like expensive, ‘I can afford literally whatever I want but I also don’t go to black tie events very often’ type of clothes

YoungK

-          Hitman, straight up

-          Doesn’t enjoy the killing, but also doesn’t hate it

-          However, he will not bring Dowoon or Wonpil especially on a job because he doesn’t want them to get used to it

-          Does a very good job, isn’t too flashy, but is pretty up front about it. Like he doesn’t use poisons or anything, he prefers to see it done and be there for the finish, just to make sure everything goes over properly, but doesn’t leave any loose ends

-          Third in the pecking order

-          Wears lost of dark clothes, but a little refined. Like leather jackets and jeans if he’s dressing down, but also suits a lot of the time

-          People might assume he’s a harsh, unfeeling type of person because of what he does, but he’s actually not terribly unapproachable, and he’s got a major soft spot for Wonpil and Dowoon just because he feels sort of a protective instinct for them

Sungjin

-          Leader of the gang, if there was one of those ridiculous and completely not useful webs of string and pictures and newspaper clippings, his picture would be at the center

-          Very sharp and good at keeping everything running smoothly

-          Very loving and protective with the other guys, but if they screw up, oh boy. ohOOOOHH boy

-          It’s generally just a really good idea not to make Sungjin unhappy

-          This especially goes for people outside the gang who cross him and make things difficult for his boys

-          If you’re in his circle and you screw up, he’s gonna get on you for a little while and let go of it pretty soon, but if you mess with his people and are dumb enough not to skip town immediately after, you’re going to be getting a visit from YoungK in the near future

-          Wears really nice custom tailored suits, usually with black ties, but if he’s dressing down, it’s some kind of nicer shoe like sperrys or a casual dress shoe and muted colors

Wonpil

-          The younger brother of the gang

-          Responsible for most of the less dirty jobs, like transportation and helping with internal management

-          Helps the others to maintain their honor just because they all want to do their best to stay good for him, because he’s the lil bro and they gotta take care of him and be a good example

-          Sungjin is training him in the management and he does a lot of work with budgeting

-          He’s in the mafia because he was born into it, he doesn’t care about the bad reputation, he just trusts and loves his family and will never leave them for anything

-          Keeps dark, beautiful hair, dresses the most casually out of all of them

-          Wears suits when he should, but when he doesn’t have to, he wears black jeans, ankle boots, dark shirts, and sometimes chokers

Dowoon

-          Helps Jae with external relations

-          Works some con jobs

-          Mostly because he seems very innocent and sweet, but he’s really not. He has standards, but if he decides that he needs to then he can and will lie through his teeth with a silver tongue and get away with it every single time

-          There’s talk of him maybe working as a hitman on occasion once he’s a little older and more experienced, but YoungK hates the idea, and Dowoon is okay with not so it probably wont happen

-          Much like Jae in that he can keep the mood light, but also understands how things work and has some street smarts. Not as lighthearted as Jae by a longshot, that boy is hard to beat, but still has it a little

-          Wears a surprising number of sweaters for someone in his line of work, but can pull off the suit

Whinsley Saberhoof

Age: 48

D.O.B: 5/20/68

Height: 8 ft tall

Ideal Voice: (x)

Relationship: Divorced

Offspring: Son (Deceased)

Sexual Orientation: Pansexual

Ideal Type: “Looks do not appeal to me. I am not attracted by their appearance. It is however, more so the chemistry that we hold or the bond that we build that’ll attract me to them. But I am currently not on the market for a significant other. It is companionship that I long for.”

Occupation: Antique Collector/Shop Keeper

Personality: Whinsley appears grumpy but is actually not. He’s a very patient and calm stallion. He’s very laid back and pretty mellow. He’s not very social. It would usually have to be the other to start a conversation in order for him to speak. He prefers to keep to himself. He has a terrible hoarding problem when it comes to collecting antiques. And he’s very disorganized and often has a cluttered room. He’s also very messy. He’s not really a romantic sort of guy. So mares/stallions, hold your breath on that one. If there were a problem of any sort, he prefers to talk his way out of the situation rather than using brute force. But, if he really needed to, he will choose to fight. He’s very strong and built to carry heavy things. He’s also not a “joking” sort of guy. So if you’re trying to be funny or decide to tell him a joke, don’t expect him to humor you. He’ll most likely just stare at you with a blank expression.

What caused VFD’s schism?

How staggering to believe people such as Count Olaf or Jacques Snicket once belonged to the very same organization! Surely it would take an immensely traumatic event, a dramatically expanded argument to lead likewise individuals on such different paths. On one side, a cohort of thieves, murderers and arsonists, determined on stealing fortunes. On the other side, a secretive alliance of researchers and experts evading persecution. Did they ever have anything in common?

“It’s complicated and confusing,” Olivia explained. “They say that long ago it was simple and quiet, but that might be a legend. There was a schism in V.F.D., a great big fight between many of the members, and since then it’s been hard for me to know what to do.
[The Carnivorous Carnival, Chapter Seven]

There is something quite absurd about this conflict. Actually, Kit and Dewey believe the Schism happened when they were about four years old, which means that most of the adults of "A Series of Unfortunate Events” are probably too young to remember it anyway. The origins of the Schism are so obscure they border on mythology: children follow their elders’ instructions without questions, and with each generation, more and more knowledge is lost. Does anyone actually understand what the Schism involves at this point?

Let’s try to move beyond the fog of war and carefully analyze the strategic dynamics of VFD before and after the Schism. Only then will we propose a frightening theory on the reasons which led to this great divide… after the cut.

A simple yet effective meal

anonymous: Do you like Chicken (and) Dumplings like Mark? If no what DO you crave?

(sighs) I suppose you’re referring to me with this question…

Chicken and dumplings is a well-known dish, commonly found in several regions of the United States and Canada, and the composition of the dish is fairly simple, given its name. However, it can be cooked and prepared in various ways. You can even make some additions, such as vegetables to go with the protein.

This sort of dish is what I believe many of you would label ‘comfort food.’ You could easily make it at your own home, or order it at a restaurant to be made for you at a price–whatever takes your fancy.

As for the question of whether I, myself, like the dish… I do enjoy it. I’d much prefer meals with a bit more… extravagance, but I suppose it doesn’t hurt to look back at the simpler foods this world has to offer. 

What do you think?”

Proof of Investment

After John and Mary separate, Sherlock isn’t taking any chances with John’s attention span ever again. He’s got a plan: dinners at new restaurants, outfits that are guaranteed to get John’s attention, a new haircut tailored to John’s preferences - all to make him stay. John, however, follows these clues to the wrong conclusion, and resigns himself to playing the reluctant wingman for a newly-transformed Sherlock Holmes.

Review: Sherlock changes in order to “start anew” and to prove to John he’s worth it as a life-long commitment, but John sees it as Sherlock “moving on.” Sort of miscommunication, good length, I liked the characterization and the fact that Sherlock got a haircut. Cute.

themindpalaceinthetardis  asked:

I love Bear your soul, and absolute adore how you're writing Yuuri's first relationship and Nakagawa. I'm hoping you can write some Drabble of Yuuri showing Nakagawa around Hasetsu. Taking him sight seeing, his first katsudon, going to ice castle :) I live for their interactions! Thank you :)

Nakagawa bowed, a little surprised at just how small Yuuri’s mother actually was.  It was obvious to him that Yuuri had gotten his round face from his mother but slighter frame from his father even if he had to keep to a strict diet to maintain his weight.  Nakagawa knew it wasn’t fair that he could eat pretty much whatever he wanted and then some and maintain his weight. Sure in the off season he had to work for it harder, but Yuuri had to work all year long, on or off season.

“Yuuri has told me so much about your katsudon, Katsuki-san. I am looking forward to trying it.”

Yuuri’s mother beamed. “Such a nice boy. You swim, yes?”

“I do. I’m hoping that I’ll get to go to London for the Olympics in a couple of years.”

“Good! Swimming uses a lot of energy so I will make you an extra-large portion of Katsudon. Yuuri, Alexei-chan said you could only have a normal portion since Nationals is coming up.

Yuuri nodded, but smiled. Even though he wasn’t getting the full katsudon experience Yuuri didn’t seem to mind. 

“Go put your things up in Yuuri’s room and then try the hot springs!”

Before they could even turn the corner to go up the second flight of stairs there was someone calling Yuuri.

“Mari-neechan.”

Yuuri’s sister was about his height, but her features were a little sharper like their father’s.

Nakagawa suddenly felt like he was under the spotlight.  Yuuri hadn’t told his family he was dating anyone and yet…

“Hurt my brother and I will hurt you.”

Nakagawa’s eyes went wide and he could only nod. He believed that she could without a doubt.

“Mari-neechan!”

His sister just looked at him. “Am I wrong? No. I’m just glad that my room is on a different floor.” She glanced at Nakagawa and he felt like he was being appraised. “Not too loud though, you two, or mom will find out and then it’ll be lectures because of school rules. Dad probably won’t care as long as you’re being safe.”

Yuuri shoved a hand over his sister’s mouth. “It’s not like that!” And it really wasn’t. They’d fooled around a bit but…

Yuuri’s sister just laughed. A good hearted and amused laugh that left single child Nakagawa sort of wishing he had an older sister too.

***

Nakagawa was no stranger to katsudon. His mother never cooked it, but there was a little family diner type place not far from his house and occasionally he’d ordered their katsudon. He usually preferred dons with beef, but it wasn’t like pork was all that bad. Especially when fried. So that was the sort of katsudon that Nakagawa was expecting.

It was not the katsudon that Nakagawa got.

Even though the cutlet was sliced for ease of eating and was covered in sauce, it maintained its crunchiness, and his chopsticks – after breaking through the crust – could easily split the pork slices into even smaller bites. The crunch was perfection and the pork melted in his mouth. And the egg! How did the egg get to be so perfect? It was amazing!  Not to mention the rice. There was some sort of subtle flavor hidden there that kept even such a heavy dish feeling light on his tongue. Yuuri only smiled and refused to give away his mother’s secret.

“I’m coming home with you for katsudon every time you win a medal from now on. So no off podium finishes.”

Yuuri rolled his eyes at him.

***

Of course his boyfriend would think that the ice rink deserved to be on the same level as a ninja house when it came to touring Hasetsu. So Nakagawa wasn’t even surprised when they went in. He’d met Nishigori and his wife a couple of times (and it really was strange that Yuuri had married friends) but didn’t know a lot about them, so he was a little surprised to see them standing behind the counter talking.

“Nishigori’s parents own the rink.”

“Yuu-kun, you’re here! And you really did bring him.  Takeshi’s parents closed the rink for the afternoon so the ice is all yours for as long as you want until the hockey team comes at six to practice. Though you know their coach is a fan and would probably let you stay on even longer if you need the practice.”

The rink was smaller than the one Yuuri trained on at the sports plaza.

“How can you run through a routine if the size isn’t the same?”

Yuuri laced up his skates.  They were fairly new since Yuuri had gone up another shoe size. Sleek and black compared to the dull, worn, and clunky looking rental skates that Nakagawa had on.  “You adapt. It’s not easy, but plenty of skaters don’t have Olympic regulation sized rinks to practice on. It’s hard the first few times; you end up expending a lot of energy that you aren’t used to just to fill the space since it’s a requirement that you do. Even at the plaza, I usually only have half the rink, if that. I only get to do a full rink run through maybe once a session?”

Yuuri was just as graceful on the ice as off.  And he even managed to stay graceful while Nakagawa used the excuse of being on skates to cling to him. Nakagawa would never understand the pull of the ice, but even so he could see how happy it made Yuuri.

what would each of the members and their s/o's have little domestic arguments about? and how they're resolved? thank you i adore your blog keep up the good work 🖤🖤

2D: He can be a bit air-headed and tends to forget chores you’ve asked him to do while you’re at work. No serious fight comes from it because he’s had a lot of head trauma and difficulties remembering his entire life, but you try to leave him bright sticky notes in places you know he frequents in the house so he’ll remember. 

Murdoc Niccals: Murdoc doesn’t seem to know how to clean up after himself; he leaves the house a damn mess every time you aren’t around and often there’s a trail of trash leads to him. You always scold him and he pretends to listen, but eventually he starts to remember when you withhold sex until the house is clean. 

Noodle: Noodle tends to be the one to take care of you no matter how she’s feeling or if she’s struggling with a problem, and doesn’t often confide in you because she doesn’t want you worried. She struggles with fully opening up her issues to you as she prefers to be alone to sort them out, but she does find it’s therapeutic to have an objective eye comment on the situation when she lets you in. 

Russel Hobbs: Russel can be a little strict when it comes to cleanliness in the house, and he doesn’t like when you toss clothes outside of the hamper, don’t make the bed immediately in the morning, etc. It can be remedied by just trying to keep things a little more in order, as Russel starts to loosen up when he reasons that the house won’t turn into a pigsty the instant you don’t make the bed.
