it starts off good then

i never wanted it like this. i never wanted to bleed for it, all sparkling-water blood on glass and bandages that never hid anything; i never wanted you to feel like a knife, like a timebomb, tick-tick-ticking until you shivered into pieces on the carpet of my bedroom. where did all the bright places go? bright boy: bright smiles, bright mind, bright laugh like a clear lake on a summer day. now all i see is the dark. and i am afraid for you.

boy, you will eclipse without me – know it, drink it in like nectar, like a curse. if you walk away, if you pull the trigger of this gun and call it fate, you will fade and fade until there is nothing left standing in your shoes but an ache. put down the pistol – wave your white flag, kiss me and call me yours. to do anything else is to fall into dark.

and know that you are never far from me – i keep you locked in my knuckles, fastened around my neck on a chain, wrapped around my ribcage like a blanket. your choice is whether to come full into the light or extinguish all but your best.

i am here, and i am waiting.

Write A Book In 10 Steps
  1. Come up with the concept and brainstorm - this is me getting the initial idea (what I call a story seed) and then constructing a very rough plan of how that would work as a story and who the characters might be.

  2. Research - Do any research needed for the book including on how to represent different identities. You might find that you need to add to this research as you go (for example if you get to a scene and realise you don’t understand or know something) but this will give you a good strong starting point to build off of.

  3. Write a plot outline - these are usually a fairly detailed set of instructions on what happens within the book, step by step. I don’t always stick to it rigidly but it keeps the plot flowing nicely and prevents me getting writer’s block.

  4. Write the first draft - this is getting the actual story down on the paper as a story. I do mine in a notebook (a soft cover black Moleskine large, I’m very particular) and it can be rough. In fact, it’s safe to assume it will be rough and need a lot of work.

  5. That’s why the next step is: rewrite - By writing in a notebook for first draft I make this a lot easier now. First, I got through my first draft taking notes of any changes I want to make. Then I type it up and make these changes as I go. Rewriting completely like this rather than just making small edits makes the big problems easier to spot and easier to fix.

  6. Edit - Go through and edit as many times as needed. This is fixing spelling and grammar, making cuts or adding bits in, tidying it up and generally making it sound nicer. Repeat as many times as needed.

  7. Get some beta readers - Have five or six people (not friends) read the book and ask them questions or have them leave feedback as they go. This way you know which parts are working for the audience and which parts aren’t. You can do several rounds of this making changes in between as needed.

  8. Once the necessary changes have been made: hire a line editor and sensitivity reader - you might not think this is necessary but it is. The editor will correct any mistakes you have made and get your story in tip top shape. The sensitivity reader will look at your representation of marginalised identities and ensure you haven’t done anything offensive. This is very important.

  9. Get a cover made - Unless you have design experience no you cannot do this yourself. Get a professional to do it!

  10. Publish and spread the word!

First Bloom

Kara & Lena


Lena fills Kara’s office with flowers again the next time Kara saves her (it’s becoming a habit, honestly, in one way or another).

Kara, in an effort to establish that “that’s what friends are for!” and that Lena doesn’t have to do anything special for her, fills Lena’s office with flowers in return.

Lena refuses to accept this, and fills Kara’s office with more flowers.

A gesture that Kara then matches.

Lena, who is too grateful (competitive) to let Kara win this, but who also realizes that Kara is not actually rich, begins sending single flowers instead. 

But, of course, these are not just ordinary roses or lilies. Unlike the “pretty rare” flowers she’d sent the first time -the plumerias Kara had said were beautiful- and the pretty but ordinary flowers she’d sent following that, Lena sends a single, exceedingly rare flower to Kara’s apartment.

To Lena’s surprise, Kara sends a different but also very rare flower to Lena’s apartment with the note “You may be rich, but I have connections. ;)” attached.

(Jess, who is wary of Lena’s connection to this reporter but is also very allergic to most flowers is just thankful that they aren’t coming to the office any more…)

They play this game for a while, trying to one-up each other in rarity.

Eventually, after growing tired of strange and expensive flowers, Lena opts for a simple sunflower with the note, 

Not rare, but it’s color reminded me of you. Like the sunflower, you are familiar and just a touch strange, all at once. But it also reminded me of myself. Because I, too, follow the sun and am made taller in it’s light.

Lena leaves the fact that Kara is the sun in this metaphor unsaid.

The next week, when Kara would typically have a flower waiting on Lena’s doorstep, there isn’t one. Lena goes through a range of emotions, from fearing that she was too forward with her affection for Kara to wondering if Kara is alright. But when she opens the door to her apartment, she sees it, sitting on the living room table. 

Glowing.

Lena walks over to the white, shining flower with it’s few, simple, curved petals and it’s red stem, and picks up Kara’s note.

It’s not from this planet (if you couldn’t tell) and I’m not sure how to write the name but it means ‘The Shining Dark’. It grows in the freezing blackness of the planet Klumithea. Most of these flowers don’t glow due to the harsh conditions of the planet. All of them are survivors for enduring, but this one… this one is special.

It reminded me of you.

I hope you like it, because it will probably stay alive longer than we will.”

The next time Kara is expecting a flower on her doorstep, she finds Lena there instead, empty handed.

“Lena! No flower today?”

“No. Your last one was hard to beat.”

Kara laughs.

“I’m glad you liked it. It’s actually really interesting, though, how it grows. The-”

“-I have something else, though. Something you might actually like more?”

“Oh. Well. I’ve been trying to tell you, Lena, that’s not necessary. That’s what friends are f-”

But Lena kisses her.

She kisses her deeply and quickly, enough to electrify both of their consciousnesses, but then pulls apart from Kara just as quickly.

Kara’s face is flushed.

“Lena, that’s-” she stops herself, suddenly. Licks her lips.

Kara kisses her back, just as deeply. In seconds, they’re both out of breath.

When Kara pulls back, eyes locked with Lena’s and mind fried from electrocution, she continues her thought, 

“That’s… not what friends are for.”

Lena laughs, “No. It’s really not.”

“Well,” Kara starts, letting go of her. She slumps against the wall and tilts her head at to look at Lena, whose heart is still racing.

Kara sighs, finally, and says,

“I guess you win, then.”

The Time I Pushed a Jerkface off a 35ft Cliff(With Good Reason)

Before we start off let me be clear. I did not murder a man by randomly shoving him off a cliff. Technically, I actually had permission, but still not murder. Chill.

Here we go.

So this is back in Mexico, at the same park as the Sting Ray Incident, just an hour later. Id already recovered from my near death experience and moved on from my friend nearly drowning me. I faced it, i survived, im good and not concerned.

One of the many attractions at this park was the Cliff of Courage. It’s a 35ft cliff that plunges into the water. Now, by my standards, 35ft is low for a cliff jump. Ive done way higher (adrenaline junkie) but obviously i was gonna jump just to say that I did. My parents, grandparents, and Jamie didnt want to jump. No surprise, so they went ahead to meet me on the other side of the river.

So sixteen year old me wanders over and there’s this big group of burly looking men.

Like huge

They’re all standing at the edge jostling each other around. And just by looking at them you can see they’re american. I dont even need to hear their texan accents to know.

So they’re pulling the whole macho act of “you jump i jump” “ohhh but then you wont jump” bs and just generally being chickens and not willing to show it.

And because of this they wont let anyone else jump. Like ten people came and left because these jerks wouldnt let anyone else go.

Eventually i get annoyed and snap “either jump or get out of my way!”

And the dude who is obviously the leader just turns and grins at me.

He assumed what i call the “douchebag alpha male pose” hands on hips, crotch foreward, you know the one, and you know the body language that goes with it.

He thinks he’s superior. Now this guy is the biggest of them all.

Massive biceps, raging six pack, the works. The Hulk would probaby do a double take at this dudes size.

And little me is not intimidated in the least.

I learned to fight at a very young age, especially men larger than me. I know if things turns south i can take him no problem. A few hits here and there and he’s out for the count.

He starts walking towards me, and i step forward too. He may be alpha male, but he just crossed an Alpha Female who doesnt back down from a challenge.

Strike one.

He looks over at his pals and says,

“Ohhhh, the little lady’s going to jump, is she?” And he just sneers down at me, all arrogance and misplaced confidence.

Strike two.

“Tell you what, sweetheart.” Ohhh he did not just say that. “You jump, we’ll let you push us.”

Three strikes he’s out he just made the biggest mistake of his life.

I just grin and go “ok” and turn and immediately dive over the edge. Im soaring through the air, enjoying the fall. I turn just in time to see his face go from 😏 to 😧

I smack down into the water grinning. Originally the plan was the swim across the river and meet up with my family, but i am cashing in this bet. Except there’s only one way to get back up to that cliff from here

I scale the side of the cliff with the rope and I can hear them chatting nervously up top

I pop up over the edge and prop myself up on the ledge with the sweetest, most steel-lined smile I can manage and say, “who’s next?”

So Alpha laughs and stands at the edge as I haul myself up. He’s laughing and assuring his buddies he’ll be back in a second cause I wont really do it and–

I straight arm him and he goes flying

He flails and plunges over the edge, shrieking in the most high pitched, terrified shriek Ive ever heard a dude bro make. He sputters to the surface and gapes up at me as I grin like a hellion down at him. I turn to the rest of his jerk buddies and smile.

Oddly enough they all jumped of their own accord

A thank you to my beta @ayeronda for betaing at an ungodly hour and being so wonderful.


It’s been a long ass day and an even longer hunt. You were more than happy to be sitting on Dean’s bed in the boys’ motel room, sipping on your second, or maybe it is the third beer. And that was just here, it wasn’t counting the four or five shots you had had down at the bar. So now you were here and Sam was riding Dean hard about his strikeout at the bar.

“Dude, you were never going home with her.”

“She doesn’t know what she’s missing out on.”

You can’t help but chuckle, “What? Two whole minutes?”

Like I didn’t need these feels.

Ummm can we talk about the Kiss FM UK interview for a sec?

There’s a particular moment in the interview that had my Camren alarms going off!! 🚨🌚🚨

When talking about the concept of the album Camila describes the Loving - she starts off by saying that it’s about a really good time in her life (may I add here that the way she talks about it it seems like all the songs have already been written, so that whole “I need to find a boy to finish the Loving” is clearly big gaymila bullshit!) 

The interviewer asks her “Loving yourself?” - I mean that would be a good and easy path to take - after a break up you usually take time to heal and indeed love yourself…

But surprise! It doesn’t look like those happy times were only about that - Camila clearly pauses, and “loving myself” becomes “loving life” - Obviously Camila had much more than herself to love… ya’ll know what I’m getting at 

Then Camila continues by saying that it wasn’t really about self-confidence or insecurity, that clearly it wasn’t that much about her…

Then Camila hit the nail in my Camren coffin by saying that it’s about a “relationship-friendship”, yes, the two words attached, no pause in between! Suggesting that the relationship/friendship is only ONE relationship. Now who do we know that could’ve been a lover and a friend to Camila at the same time???

My theory since the beginning is that The Hurting, The Healing, The Loving is, in chronological order, the telling of Camren’s first break up (The Hurting), how Camila dealt with it and eventually became friends again with Lauren (The Healing) and then how they got back together (The Loving). I don’t think the break up that happened after that (I believe March 2017) will be a subject on the album.

Anyhoo, Camila says after that that the album is clearly a type of closure for her, so I really believe that Camren is separated right now - which is something that doesn’t really bother me since I think they both need to experience new things and grow separately for a while, only to get back together happier in the future.. 😊

Throwback to this lovely performance.

Basically I’ve been using this EX quite a bit in different gifsets and thought it’s high time this number got its own post.
