Imagine you and Chris getting an early Christmas surprise.

A/N: Here we go, the epilogue is here. Ugh, that gif just melts my entire heart. Thank you all for following, I really appreciate the love and support. (Here’s to more in the future, when I can think of more ideas. X) I’ll be back to one shots and requests soon, after my brain catches a bit of a break. Master lists will be updated so keep an eye out for that. Anyway, I’ll shut up now and leave you to read. You can read the previous parts here: (Little Ones - Part 1/Part 2/Part 3/Part 4/Part 5A/5B/5C/5D/5E) and (Drunk Minds, Sober Hearts; Baby Fever; and Memory Lane - Masterlist) Enjoy. X

You stood over the sink, staring down at the stick which was yet to tell you if you were pregnant or not. You’d been feeling a little off for a couple weeks now, you just didn’t think it was because you were pregnant again. You’d thought you were coming down with a cold due to exhaustion from the holiday rush and the raging Boston winter, but then you missed your period; that was the moment you realized you and Chris hadn’t been as safe as you’d thought.

It was exciting to think that you were going to have another child, you secretly hoped it was a girl for Chris’ sake; he seemed pretty excited the last time you discuss that possibility. But there was also a part of you that was nervous because you knew what this meant for the two of you; chaos in the household and workplace. The only thing that calmed you was knowing you had Chris by your side and that the two of you were a very good team, it also helped knowing you had a great group of family and friends who were always ready to lend a hand. So while the pregnancy was not planned, the baby was going to be well-received and easily transitioned into your busy lives.

The timer on your phone went off as Chris knocked on the bathroom door; both sounds made you flinch. “You’ve been in there a while, are you okay?” Chris called as you turned the timer off. “Y/N?” He knocked again as you picked up the stick, a smile spread across your lips when you saw that it was positive. “Hey, are you-” He cut himself off when you opened the door; you held the stick behind your back. “What were you doing in there?” He chuckled softly.

“Um- I…” You couldn’t speak, you were so breathless.

“Do you think you can tell me downstairs?” He quizzed, beckoning his head towards the door. “We’re decorating the tree and Jack’s eating more popcorn than he is stringing it.” He started towards to the door but you grabbed his arm, stopping him. “What?” He turned around to face you; his eyes widened when you held the positive test in front of his face. “Oh my God,” he breathed, tears welled in his eyes as he took the test from you to study it. “Is this?” He quizzed and you nodded, smiling. “Are we? Like- really?”

“You’re holding the test in-”

“Yes!” Chris cheered, wrapping his arms tight around you and lifting you off the ground as your arms snaked around his neck. “Oh my God, yes! Yes yes yes!” He spun you in a circle and you laughed, excited he was excited. “Oh my God,” he breathed, lowering you onto the ground but not pulling away from the hug. “We’re going to be parents again, babe.”

“Are you okay with that?”

“Are you kidding me?” He pulled away and cupped your face in his hands. “This is the best early Christmas present ever. I mean-” he ran a hand over his mouth, chuckling. “We’re going to have another baby, Y/N.” Your eyes started to water when you heard him say that, out of pure excitement and joy. “It could be a girl this time, Jack will have a sister and-” The more he thought about it, the more he felt like crying. “I can’t even begin to express how happy I am right now.”

“We’re going to be insanely busy, you know that right?”

“Believe me, I know.” He chuckled. “But we’re going to be fine, we’re an awesome team and we’ve got a great family and great friends who will help us with anything we need. We’re going to be okay,” he assured you, pecking you on the lips. “I promise, everything’s going to be great.” He hugged you again and you smiled, hugging him back. “You’re okay with this, right?” He quizzed when he remembered not that long ago, the two of you’d agreed to wait. “I mean-” he gently pushed you away by the shoulders. “You’re not feeling overwhelmed or on the verge of a panic attack?” He asked, brushing your cheek with the pad of his thumb.

“No,” you assured him with a shake of your head. “I’m excited about this, I know we said we’d wait but- clearly, the universe doesn’t want us to. Ever since Jack heard that he might have a baby sister, he’s been so excited. He’s been putting aside his favorite toys to give to her whenever she comes along,” you placed your hand against your stomach. “And now she’s on her way.”

“Do you think it could be a girl this time?” He asked, placing his hand over yours. “I’ll love the child no matter the gender, but I would really like for our next child to be a girl.” He told you and you nodded in agreement. “I still can’t believe this, Y/N. We’re going-”

“Daddy, we need more popcorn.” Jack walked into your room with a cheeky grin; it was obvious he’d eaten it all. You both looked at him then back at each other nodding, it was time to break the news to the soon-to-be big brother. “What?” He quizzed, titling his head.

“Mama and I have some great news to tell you,” Chris pulled away from you to pick Jack up. “Do you know how you’ve been asking us about having a baby sister?” He asked Jack and Jack nodded, his eyes wide with excitement. “Well, buddy. Your baby sister is on her way.”

“Really?!” Jack gasped. “When does she get here? Is she going to spend Christmas with us?” You and Chris looked at each other, laughing. “Oh, Daddy! We’ve got to get her presents ready! I’m going to give her my Mickey Mouse hat and my favorite color pencils! Let me go, I need to go wrap them!” He tried to squirm out of his dad’s grip only to have Chris tighten it.

“Buddy,” Chris chuckled, “she’s not going to be here for another eight months.”

“Oh,” Jack’s shoulders slumped. “Well, I guess that gives me more time to prepare her gifts. Can she share a room with me when she gets here?” He asked you and Chris. “I’d love to share a room with my baby sister.”

“Sure, sweetheart.” You smiled and kissed his cheek. “You’re going to be such a great big brother, you know that?” Jack smiled as you rubbed his back. “And you,” you smiled at Chris, “you’re going to be as amazing with her as you already are with him.”

“I love you,” Chris wrapped an arm around your waist and pulled you towards him and Jack. “And I love you,” you smiled and pecked him on the lips.

“And I love the both of you,” Jack pecked both yours and Chris’ cheek, making both of you smile.

With a child as adorable as Jack, you couldn’t wait to see how the next one was going to turn out. Whether the baby was going to be a girl, like you’d all hoped, or a boy, there was no doubt the baby was going to be a great addition to your lovely little family.

Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★ ★

Admin J’s notes: Fallen Cas + daddy Destiel = happy Admin J. This makes me so happy. So, so happy. Even if I’m not very happy with the bunch of baby Marys everywhere in fics. I get the idea of naming a baby after Dean’s mom (except now that she’s back wtf) and all, but when you have read as many fics as I have, you start to get annoyed by some things. Like babies named Mary.

Summary: Seven years after the angels were cast out of Heaven, the Winchester brothers finally have their own little families. Sam has two children and a third on the way. It took Dean and Castiel a while but they finally adopted their own baby girl, Mary Joanna. And since it’s her first Halloween, Dean is bound and determined to do it right even though she’s only four-months-old. The brothers take their kids to the pumpkin patch.

oh man, im having so many x6 feelings lately just


some of his lines are just so cute, and make me think. like in one place he says something along the lines of “a great writer lived here. I can not imagine how anyone not a scientist can be considered great”

and at first its just kinda heartbreaking, cause no x6 sweetie anyone can be great, youre great too

but then he makes a lot of these comments where he downright admires the science accomplished at the institute. and sure, most of that will be due to his programming (because what megalomanic slave owner wouldn’t make their manufactured people be in awe of them?) but artificially induced or not his feelings are still real and valid and he’s just so into the sciences i just can’t, like imagine


x6 assisting with some trivial task (prior to becoming a courser maybe). and hes kinda curious and asks a few questions

but the scientists don’t acknowledge his curiousity at all and so after a while he just gives up


but he’s just so interested in everything and some sciences, like the mechanical ones, don’t really take for him but he can’t ever get enough hearing about it


and hes just kinda hovering over the scientists/sole’s shoulder when they do science-y stuff and he doesnt ask anymore but he watches and hes maybe a little wide-eyed and


so at some point when he and sole travel around they kinda mention having learned a lot of stuff at school and about subject no one at the institute knows a lot about, too, so x6 kinda stops and goes ‘woah’ and he doesn’t explicitly ask because its not his place and he really doesnt need to know all of these things


but sole knows by now how to interpret his silences and talks a bit about astronomy and space physics and rocket science, because none of those topics are really feasible to research in an underground complext. and then they mention manned space missions


and that gets x6′s attention because astronauts are scientists, theyre super smart and they’re also strong and tough so they can survive the conditions in space, and he’s strong and okay maybe he doesn’t want to become a full-time scientist (he’s pretty happy being a courser) but these people are both and they’re important and sole’s eyes shine with wonder when they talk about them


and sole gives up a few weeks later because x6′s curiousity is as silent as it is insatiable and sure they learned the basics in school but there’s no way they can tell him the exact launch trajectories or the quantified forces that work on a human body when it is shot into space 


maybe at some point they go out of their way to get to university point/the surface CIT/wherever and find some well preserved books on the topic, and not just for laymen but dissertations and journals and books full of formulas and graphics and things the actual scientists would have worked with


and its like early christmas for x6 because sole doesn’t even understand some of the words in the titles but he does, because after all he’s been created by the Institute, programmed from the start with a sharp mind and so much knowledge


and everytime he has a few minutes to himself he reads through these books, learns about the planets, and gravitational waves and space-time fabric and there might be places outside of earth that could support life 


he knows more about space than anyone at the institute and its a weird feeling, kind of like he did something behind their backs, something he isn’t supposed to do, and he really doesn’t need to know about the composition of saturn’s rings in order to do his job


and its worse now because now when the scientists brush off his questions and suggestions - because damn it he knows a lot about physics and the composition of metals and he just wanted to share - it hurts because he knows he can help, he knows he can keep up with the scientists on their best days


to them he’ll always be just a machine with an assignment who doesn’t need to know anything but the things its been manufactured for


so for the first time in his existence he looks forward to getting to the surface, despite how filled with scum and dirt it is

because up there sole’s waiting for him with another book with 200 year old faded equations scrawled in the margins

and when he looks up he can see the stars and know every one of them

I said to the the sun, “tell me about the big bang”
The sun said, “it hurts to become”

I carry that hurt on the tip of my tongue
And whisper bless your heart every chance I get
So my family tree can be sure I have not left
You do not have to leave to arrive
I am learning this slowly

So sometimes when I look in the mirror
My eyes look like the holes in the shoe of the shoe shine man
My hands are busy on the wrong things
Some days, I call my arms wings
While my head is in the clouds

It will take me a few more years to learn
Flying is not pushing away the ground
Safety is not always safe
You can find one on every gun
I am aiming to do better

This is my body
My exhaustion pipe will never pass inspection
And still my lungs know how to breathe
Like a burning map
Everytime I get lost behind the curtain of her hair
You can find me by the window
Following my past to a trail of blood
In the snow

The night I opened my veins
The doctor who stitched me up asked me if I did it for attention
For the record, if you have ever done anything for attention,
This poem is attention
Title it with your name
It will scour the city bridge every night
You stand kicking at your shadow
Staring at the river
It does not want to find your body
Doing anything but loving what it loves
So love what you love

Say, “this is my body
It is no ones but mine
This is my nervous system
My wanting blood
My half tamed addictions
My tongue, tied up like a ball of Christmas lights”

If you put a star on the top of my tree,
Make sure it’s a star that fell
Make sure it hit bottom like a tambourine
Cause all these words are stories

Bruce Wayne x Reader

The prompt for this one was Bruce hosting a Christmas party at the manor where the reader is his assistant and is obligated to attend because he invited all his coworkers. Reader thinks everyone there will be rich so they find a beautiful dress and Bruce is awestruck. Plus mistletoe? from @lovekenya24

So this wasn’t written as a Hamilton fic. But I guess it could be taken as a Hamilton fic? Idk. I liked it as a title. And I’m bad at titles. So it happened.

Words: 976

With a huff you put your car in park and turn off the ignition. You really didn’t want to come to this party, but you walked into his office while he was inviting some members of the board, and he insisted that you attend as well. And how does someone say no to an invitation from Bruce Wayne?

The Christmas lights of Wayne Manor cast a soft, colorful glow on the snow, and you pull your coat closer to your body. Why do fancy dresses have to be so cold? You would much rather be wearing your flannel pajamas and watching Christmas movies right now, and you remind yourself that this is your last chance to turn back around and go home. Bruce wouldn’t notice your absence, right? You’re just his assistant.

Before you can decide whether or not you are going to leave, a gust of wind and snow makes the decision for you. You rush into Wayne Manor with as much elegance and grace you can muster with chattering teeth, numb hands, and fresh snow sticking to your hair and clothes.

Someone takes your coat at the door, and you miss the heavy sleeves almost immediately. You don’t have time to mourn their loss for very long, though, as you are very quickly ushered into the ballroom.

It takes you a second to process your surroundings. A very, very large Christmas tree marks the center of the ballroom, and garland frames the room with simple elegance. Then you notice what everyone else at the party is wearing.

Suddenly your vibrant red dress doesn’t seem like the best choice. Everyone else is wearing soft or subdued colors. Beige and black seem to be big hits. But nowhere do you spot any other flash of red.

Trying to ignore all of the peering eyes, you float over to the side of the room and stare out the tall windows. The falling snow distracts you from the social event you are stuck in, and as your body finally warms up, you begin to feel comfortable in this high class social event. You watch as the falling snow meets the ground, and the soft shadows from the dancing guests behind you cast patterns on the sparkling ground.

“Y/N?” a familiar voice calls from over your shoulder, snapping you out of your trance. You turn around to see Bruce, as handsome as ever in what you assume is an extremely expensive tux.

“Mister Wayne,” you nod and smile sweetly in greeting, unintentionally morphing into work mode. “How are you this evening?”

“Much better now that you’re here,” he says without missing a beat.

“You flatter me, Mr. Wayne,” you blush but refuse to look away. This is your boss after all.

“Please, Y/N, call me Bruce,” he smiles and offers you one of the drinks he’s holding. “And it’s not flattery if it’s true.”

You accept the drink and take a quick sip. “Well, I think I might have missed a memo on the proper dress code. Apparently black is the best color to wear for a Christmas party. I stand out like a sore thumb.”

“Not true,” he says. “I would say you’re the most beautiful woman in the room.”

You stare at him dumbstruck for a second, unsure of how to respond. He takes your glass and gives it to a passing waiter along with his before holding out his hand. “Would you care to dance?”

Without thinking you accept the offer, and he sweeps you to the center of the ballroom.

“Really, Y/N. You look beautiful tonight. And it’s not just the dress,” he says as the two of you spin in lazy circles.

“Bruce, what are you doing? You cannot be hitting on me. I’m your assistant for crying out loud!” you stress with as serious an expression as you can muster.

“Y/N, there’s nothing that says I can’t tell you how beautiful you are. Or that I can dance with you.”

“But why all of a sudden?”

“Y/N, I have found you to be one of the most fascinating women I’ve ever met since the moment I met you. This is not sudden. Not to me,” he spins you around before pulling you back to him, holding you closer than before.

You can’t deny that you’ve had a crush on him ever since you started working for the company. But it’s an entirely different situation for him to feel the same way! The song ends, and Bruce escorts you to another side of the room.

“How about I try again,” Bruce says, leading you far enough away from the ballroom that you two could have a peaceful conversation while still keeping the party in eyesight. “Y/N, it would be my honor if you would allow me to take you out for dinner some time.”

The two of you stop in front of another Christmas tree. “That would be nice,” you smile. “But only if you leave work at the office.”

“I can’t make many promises there. But I promise to give you my undivided attention.” Bruce leans a little closer to you, and you place your hand on his chest as his face is inches away from yours.

“What do you think you’re doing?” you ask with a playful tone.

Bruce points directly above the two of you, and you look up to see a sprig of mistletoe dangling in the archway. “We’re under the mistletoe, and I would like to kiss you if you’d let me. It’s a Christmas rule.”

“Of course. We don’t want to break any rules,” you smile as he leans down until his lips meet yours. As you kiss you can’t help but be thankful that gust of wind kept you from going home. You would have missed the best Christmas gift you could have asked for:  Bruce Wayne.

Hi do you know any domestic jily or just really well-written sweet fluffy (and if there's smutty well that's great) types? Thank you!

We recently did a fluffy smut post and a fluffy wedding night smut post, so these are more focused on domestic jily specifically (there is some smut though!)  We also have this Jily + baby Harry post.

anonymous asked:

On Gwen's Xmas album track list there is a song she wrote called Christmas Eve. Doesn't appear to be a duet with Blake. The rumor is one of the added tracks to Blake's Xmas album reissue is Christmas Eve. Does it make sense for him to record her song on his own and add? That would be odd. Right? Could Blake's new track be the song Celine Dion recorded called Christmas Eve? Could even be other songs with same title. It's such an awesome song and he would totally kill it. Thoughts?

Hmmm…that is interesting! Blake does like to cover songs so if it is one of the new songs then I can see it being the Celine Dion one. I doubt they would both have versions of the same song on their albums, that doesn’t seem likely

To my wonderful followers and lovely fellow Samifer shippers, I hope you have a most wonderful Christmas filled with all your shipping needs! Thank you for making my year that bit better!

—-

He knew he should turn the Christmas tree lights off. The damn thing was positioned right beside the bed, the effect of the lack of space in cheap motel rooms. But there was the plug socket with arm’s reach; the motel owners would probably appreciate saving the electricity.

Even so, he kept the lights on, illuminating the otherwise dark room, along with the three, slowly melting candles on the headboard shelf that he swore always glowed brighter in Lucifer’s presence.

The Light-bringer was dozing beside him in whatever state passed as sleep for angels, suitably to his title, unbothered by the extra glow. It still unnerved Sam a little to see him so relaxed, lying on his side, eyes closed, as if he didn’t have the power to destroy the world with a click of his fingers. The plain white shirt he was wearing was riding up a little so a small slip of skin was visible on his back. Sam resisted the urge to touch it, clenching his fists against the temptation to run his fingertips right up under Lucifer’s shirt just to feel the soft flesh and the way Lucifer would instantly respond to his touch.

“You’re thinking too loud, Sam,” Lucifer spoke up suddenly, voice noticeably lacking in its usual suave quality. He sounded almost slurred, same as any person half disorientated with sleep on a lazy Christmas Eve night.

Sam smiled, shuffling closer until he was pressed up against Lucifer’s back, nuzzling his face into the nape of Lucifer’s neck. “Stop reading my thoughts then.”

Lucifer made a sound somewhere between a laugh and a scoff. “You’re projecting loudly,” he insisted.

“Sorry,” Sam muttered, the corners of his lips still pulling upwards. He sighed, the warmth of his breath tickling Lucifer’s skin and making the archangel twitch.

“Go to sleep, Sam,” Lucifer said. “I thought you were excited for this big important day tomorrow.”

“Too excited to sleep,” Sam grinned, draping his arm over Lucifer’s waist. “All my past Christmases have been… not great.” He sighed, Lucifer’s hair tickling his temple. “But this year I’ve got everything I want.”

Lucifer was silent for a few moments, apparently contemplating. “Which is?”

“You,” Sam beamed, shifting up to lean over Lucifer so he could see his face. “And Dean, Cas, a family.” He shifted down so his head was resting on Lucifer’s shoulder, half draped over the archangel. “It means a lot to me, you know, just you all being here.”

Lucifer sighed, carefully shifting under Sam until he was lying on his back to look up at the hunter. “Your happiness is all that matters to me, Sam,” he said. “So if you’re happy, I’m glad.”

With a now apparently permanent smile etched onto his face, Sam leant down and pressed their lips together, almost laughing when Lucifer instantly rose up to meet him, tongue pressing into Sam’s mouth.

It wasn’t long before the archangel had flipped them both over, pinning Sam to the mattress beneath him, arms braced either side of his head. He pulled back slowly, their hips touching, legs tangled, blue eyes studying Sam as if he were the most precious thing in all of creation. The soft glow of the pale tree lights illuminated the side of his face, highlighting all the little details Sam would have been content to spend the rest of his life studying; the always perfectly even stubble along his jawline, the gentle curve of his nose, the little lines etched into his skin.

“I love you,” Sam said. He almost shivered. It still shocked him each time he said those words, feeling within himself just how much he meant them as they escaped from between his lips. He reached up, taking Lucifer’s face in his hands, reveling in each touch that made his skin tingle as Lucifer’s coldness met with his human warmth. “Merry Christmas, my Morningstar.”

Lucifer seemed to slowly exhale, eyes falling shut as he did so. He leant down and pressed a last, loving kiss to Sam’s forehead as if in blessing. And then, though Sam knew he disliked the whole religious connotation of doing so, he replied, “Merry Christmas, Sam.”

Sam grinned, face flushed. He pulled Lucifer down again, kissing him deeply before the archangel gently pulled back and rolled off of him.

“Go to sleep, Sam.” Lucifer shuffled up beside him, slipping an arm around Sam’s waist and pulling him close. “When you wake up, you can have your precious Christmas.”

Sam would have been happy to stay awake the whole night with his angel, but he supposed there was no sense in being tired tomorrow when he was so looking forward to it. So he sighed happily, snuggling into Lucifer and closing his eyes with all the satisfaction of someone who had got exactly what they wanted this year.

47) "Why?" (part 2)
  • Anon 2: Do one where everyone tells Sammy why they love y/n, not just because y/n and Sam are dating but they have an actual reason why. title it "why?"
  • (SUPER LONG!!!!!!)
  • (This one is going to be more conversational. So this one is different than usual. enjoy. )
  • Sammy's POV
  • J: Aye Sammy, where's Y/N?
  • Me: She's in Y/H/T
  • G: When does she get here?
  • Me: She's not coming.
  • Mike: Oh, she's coming for christmas then?
  • Me: Nope
  • Nate: Wait, what? Are you going to her or something?
  • Me: No. We got in an argument last week. We were talking about when we get here for thanksgiving then she was like she's going to Y/H/T for thanksgiving so I was like ok we can go to Y/H/T for thanksgiving then you can come for christmas. Then she said she was going back to Y/H/T for christmas. And I was like wtf. We can't go to your family both times. What about mine? Basically she said SHE'S going home for the holidays and not spending time with me or my family. She did not want to tear me away from my family and she didn't want me to tear her away from her family!
  • G: Wtf that's kind of dumb. Madison is coming here for both events!
  • Me: SEE! THAT'S WHAT I'M SAYING! and I'm so fucking mad and irritated with this!
  • Annie: Sammy, you need to realize that she doesn't get to spend time with her family very often! You don't either! She wants you to spend time with everyone while she spends time with everyone!
  • Me: But it's the holidays! I want her to spend time with us for her to enjoy how we are and I want to do the same with her family!
  • Emily: That's understandable but Sammy,
  • Me: But nothing! If Madison can come, she should come!
  • Emily: Y/N and Madison are two totally different girls! They do things differently! They think differently! And you can't expect Y/N to do something because Madison does it! You can't expect Y/N to dress how Madison dresses! You can't expect her to react or feel the same way. She's not Madison! You have to respect that!
  • Annie: And to be honest, we like Y/N better, no offense G. (WRITERS NOTE: I DONT HATE MADISON. LOVE HER ACTUALLY. THIS IS NO HATE TOWARDS HER. THIS IS JUST FOR THE STORY. GET OVER IT. THANKS.)
  • G: None taken. but *WHY*? just curious. I won't get mad.
  • Ben: Oh, I have my reason. When we first met Y/N, we asked her, her opinion on things. Yo, she is straight up real. I asked her, if one or more of sam's friends does not like you, what would you do? and she straight up said, "If one or more of his friends do not like me, and I did EVERYTHING I could for them to like me, then we will have to break up." I asked her why? she said "if they are friends, especially close friends, then he will consider them family! If family does not like me, that's it! Done deal. Because that is God's way of telling me, WE DO NOT BELONG TOGETHER! That there is someone out there more compatible for him and his friends and family! Never will I make a guy put me before his family and friends. I just came along the way, but them, they were there from the beginning. And I'm not going to waste my time on some bs relationship when I could be out there looking for the right one for me." After she said that, I gained so much respect for her!
  • Emily: I REMEMBER THAT! I remember asking her, her opinion on like, no offense Jack, but nudes, sex tapes, and leaked nudes. She said, "I feel sorry for the leaked nudes because they trusted someone and then they lost their trust. But at the same time, it's hard for me to be sympathetic because no matter how much you like someone, no matter how much you want to "fuck them," nudes are degrading. You were the one who decided to send them, NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU TRUSTED THE PERSON, YOU still sent them. It's hard for me to have an opinion. But at the same time it's disgusting how people are hating on the girls who do send it out like, why are we not hating the person that leaked it? Why are we destroying these girls' lives because of their trust in someone who threw that shit away? I love Madison, and I fucking HATE what people say about her because of this bullshit. LIFE HAPPENS. MISTAKES ARE MADE. GET OVER IT. In my opinion, the way I'd do it, I'd say, "the only time you'll see this booty and tits, you gotta be here physically, with your face between my legs. Until then, you gone have to wait."
  • Annie: I remember asking her about past relationships/hook ups and her past sexual experiences. She said, "I've had 2 real boyfriends in the past. Got cheated on both of them. So I'm very blocked off with my heart. As for past sexual experiences, I'm a virgin. so nothing to tell. As for hook ups, it's not that I won't do hookups, but I just haven't. I'm not going to have some random drunk guy stick his tongue down my throat. Nasty. I'm very conserved. If people do that stuff, do you. I'm not judging, but that kind of stuff, not my thing. And I'm not willing to just give my virginity to just ANYONE. It's not that I'm waiting for marriage, it's just I'm waiting for the right guy. Someone worth waiting for, as corny as it sounds, it's true." Since that, I've loved her.
  • Emily & Ben: Same.
  • J: Nate, Mike and I had a deep talk with her one time at like i think 3 am. When G and Madison were on a date and Sam was in New York.
  • (to be continued. these are too long for just one post. sorry!)

This is my body.
I have weathervanes. They are especially sensitive to dust storms and hurricanes.
When I am nervous, my teeth chatter like a wheelbarrow collecting rain
I am rusty when I talk:
It’s the storm in me.

The doctor said some day I might not be able to walk
it’s in my blood like the iron
my mother is tough as nails,
she held herself together the day she could no longer hold my niece
we said,
“Our kneecaps are our prayer beds
everyone can walk further on their kneecaps than they can on their feet.”

This is my heartbeat
Like yours, it is a hatchet.
It can build a house or tear one down.
My mouth is a fire escape,
the words coming out don’t care that they are naked,
there is something burning in here.
When it burns,
I hold my own shell to my ear,
listen for the parade when I was seven.
The man who played the bagpipes wore a skirt
he was from Scotland;
I wanted to move there,
wanted my spine to be the spine of an unpublished book,
my faith the first and last page
the day my ribcage became monkeybars for a girl hanging on my every word
they said,
“you are not allowed to love her,”
tried to take me by the throat to teach me
I was not a boy,

I had to unlearn their prison-speak
refuse to make wishes on the star on the sheriff’s chest,

I started asking the sun about the Big Bang
the sun said, “it hurts to become.”
I carried that hurt on the tip of my tongue
and whisper “bless your heart” every chance I get
so my family tree can be sure I have not left
you do not have to leave to arrive, I am learning this slowly

So sometimes when I look in the mirror
my eyes look like the holes in the shoes of the shoe-shine man
my hands are busy on the wrong things.
Some days, I call my arms wings while my head is in the clouds
It will take me a few more years to learn flying
is not pushing away the ground
safety isn’t always safe
you can find one on every gun.
I am aiming to do better.

This is my body.
My exhaustion pipe will never pass inspection
and still my lungs know how to breathe like a burning map
every time I get lost in the curtain of her hair
you can find me by the window
following my past to a trail of blood in the snow
the night I opened my veins,
the doctor who stitched me up asked me if I did it for attention.
For the record:
If you have ever done anything for attention,
this poem is attention.
Title it with your name
it will– scour the city bridge every night you spend kicking at your shadow,
staring at the river,
it does not want to find your body doing anything but loving what it loves
love what you love
Say “this is my body,
it is no one’s but mine,
it is my nervous system
my wanting blood,
my half-tamed addictions,
my tongue tied-up like a ball of Christmas lights
if you put a star on the top of my tree, make sure it is a star that fell,
make sure it hit bottom like a tambourine
‘cause all these words are stories for the staircase to the top of my lungs,
where I sing what hurts
and the echo comes back
“Bless your heart”
Bless your body.“
Bless your holy kneecaps, they are so smart
You are so full of rain,
there is so much growing,
hallelujah to your weathervanes,
hallelujah to the ache
hallelujah to your full, to the fall,
hallelujah to the grace,
and every body
and every cell
of us all.
