Kissing requests <3

 ripping the other away - “no we shouldn’t” - but when they kiss them again they moan and hold them close + staring at the other’s lips, trying not to kiss them, before giving in

Author’s note: bless you for requesting this annonie, you are the angel <3 (and sorry for the late answer, but hopefully you’ll like this ^^)

If you could describe Jimin with one word only, you’d chose gentle without a second thought.

Because Jimin is gentle in the subtle way he cares about anyone and everyone, he’s gentle in his speech, in his warm eyes, in his playful smiles, in the way his hands move into the air and his slender body folds on itself between trilling laughter.

Jesus, even his nameJimin, Jimin, Jimin – sounds gentle rolling like sugar crystals down your tongue.

And yet, under the saccharine surface woven in cotton candy and blushing cheeks, sometimes you could swear that sharper creatures are waiting for you to trip over the edge of his honeyed words.

Con una suma inparables de arrugas sobre mí, te pienso.
Han pasado años, vuelves y caes en mi memoria. Estoy arrecostado en el sillon, con mis dos manos entrelazada atras de mi cabeza, mirando sin cesar al techo en esta oscuridad acumulada por recuerdos. No puedo llamarte ni dolor, ni amor , porque no eres de mi propiedad.
Te quize libre y libre estas. -No se ,pero el tiempo no ha borrado nada ni curado.

aphengland915  asked:

Could you recommend any books on Vikings/old Norse stuff/ Icelandic sagas/ basically any of the stuff you talk about? Nonfiction, fiction, I'll read anything when it's an interesting topic like that. Thanks so much!!! (Oh yeah and if you get more info from websites rather than books I'll take that too)


I am actually really glad that you asked me this question, since I am sure a lot of people will find this helpful. I have actually been working on compiling a list of books and resources for Medieval Scandinavian and Celtic Studies, so I definitely have quite a few I can recommend. The list is not done yet (nor will it ever be, honestly), but I eventually plan to post it and work on it together with the community here. 

For now I can provide you what I currently have. I will send you just the Norse material, since that is what you are asking for. If you want a detailed version of this list, see my “Sources” tab or follow this link. Otherwise, feel free to send another ask or message regarding any specific books or resources. 

Also, if you ever feel like talking about any of the material, or find a book I don’t have on my list, feel free to message me if you’d like. I would love to discuss with you and hear your thoughts.

Anyway, here it is:
