Nygmobblepot is Alive

I haven’t done one of these in a while, so I wanted to make a list of reasons Nygmobblepot is still surviving and thriving. Some good chicken soup (I prefer Tomato) for the soul!

  • Oswald Cobblepot is still love with Edward Nygma, even more so now than he knew (even if he is going to be pissed upon his return)
  • That mysteriously titled Gotham episode 3x18 “Meant to Be”
  • That “Love” commercial FOX  released that showed Nygmobblepot over an actual canon (and popular) couple Lucifer and Chloe from FOX
  • The show creators haven’t confirmed Nygmobblepot isn’t going to be canon, and the executive producer even referenced them as always being able to find each other and soul mates.
  • Edward Nygma hallucinating Oswald, because let’s be real he Hallucinates people he loves. Kristen, Oswald, and himself.
  • Still, the writers on twitter saying “the season has many episodes left” in reference to Nygmobblepot. 
  • There are still 7 WHOLE EPISODES to come from this season!
  • Cory deleting that tweet saying Edward wasn’t queer around the same time “Meant to Be” was/is being filmed. (I understand this could be for a multitude of other reasons, but the timing is oddly random and out of no where.)
  • Oswald has always fallen and come back 10x stronger to get what he wants and what he wants is Edward’s ass, in more ways than one.
  • AND FINALLY THIS GIF—-

Cory always enjoyed spending time with his older brother. Even though there was an 18 year age difference, Cory’s older brother still treated him like a big kid and Cory liked that. One of Cory’s favorite things to do with his older brother was work out with him. Cory was only 8 year old, so his body wasn’t going to gain big muscle like his brother’s but he still liked being around all the big boys and watch them lift the big weights. One day, Cory and his brother went to a new gym. “Hey! What’s this place?” Cory asked as they pulled up to the new gym. “It’s uhhh, it’s a better gym than the one we usually go to. You’ll be able to do more big kid stuff here.” Cory’s older brother said with a smile. As they got out of the car and entered the doors, Cory immediately started to feel warm. “Is it warm in here?” Cory asked his brother as he fanned himself with his small hand. Cory’s brother laughed and replied, “you’re fine little bro. Look, I think I see a treadmill open. Why don’t you run for a bit and I’ll meet up with you later after I change into my work out gear.” Cory responded with, “okay bro, I’ll catch you in a bit.”

Cory walked over to the big treadmill. Cory looked at all the buttons on it and was instantly confused. “Ummm, how do I work this?” Cory didn’t want to look confused in front of all the big boys so he just pressed the up arrow until it read the number “24” in big red glowing numbers. Just then, the machine started to move. It was going pretty fast but Cory was keeping a steady pace. Cory started to feel warm again but ignored the feeling so that he didn’t look weak. “Uuuh!” Cory felt a jolt of energy surging throughout his body now. Cory tried to stop running but he couldn’t, it was like his legs were being controlled by something else. “He-Hey, What’s happening?” He was confused as his legs continued to run. Just then Cory being to spurt up in height. “Ugh! Wha?” He looked down noticing his clothes were tighter than before. He felt his shoes get really tight and his shirt barely covered his torso now. Cory looked around to see if anyone noticed his sudden growth spurt but everyone was preoccupied with their work out. “Uuugh! Not again!” Just then Cory felt the surge get stronger. He listened as his shoes began to burst open. “Ow!” His toes were now exposed and then suddenly his feet bursted through his small shoes. Two large size 13 feet replaced his size 7 shoes. He felt the surge crawl up his legs which caused his legs to grow larger and more muscular. Cory then started to run faster due to all the muscle weight he just put on. The surge of energy climbed into his torso. Suddenly he noticed that his chest was popping out and shredding the front of his shirt almost instantly. “Ugh!!” Cory was sweating as his body began to grow more muscular and taller. Cory’s shirt fell clean off of his torso exposing a mature and large chest and stomach. His arms were so big now. His body looked to be that of a young football player’s.

“Ooooh!” Cory’s dick began to throb in his tight gym shorts. He felt his balls drop suddenly causing his voice to deepen. His face kept his young boyish charm but resembled a much older man’s face. His shorts busted open as his butt grew larger. Cory continued running as his thick muscles and pecs jumped in place. His large bare feet hit the treadmill with every step. He couldn’t stop running, but he didn’t want to. All that was left of his work out clothes were a tight pair of underwear now. Cory felt so horny but he just couldn’t stop running.

Just then Cory’s brother came out. “Whoa! Hey little bro! Looks like the gym had no problem claiming you as one of its own already.” His brother said as he examined his once small little brother’s body. “Now don’t think this means you’re going to get bigger than me now.” He laughed as he patted his now large littler brother’s sweaty back. “You keep working hard bro, I’m going to head over to the weights.” Cory watched as his brother walked away slowly starting to realize that this gym was a not so ordinary gym and his older brother knew it.

Stevie’s favorite things

I have received a request to post Stevie’s favorite things (”music, books, food, poets and all things beyond, far and in between”), so I gathered some things from several interviews and Q&As.

I feel that I have to add some sort of disclaimer though - This list could never be a thorough look into Stevie’s likes as she’s a very private person (as she should be!) and I’m far from being an expert. All the things listed here were mentioned publicly and I have no intention of intruding or disrespecting. I hope you enjoy it, and if you think of things I’ve left out, please drop me a line. 

▬ Music

It’s almost impossible to gather all the artists, bands, and songs Stevie has cited as favorites in just one place… Nothing I post will do justice to her love of music. “I have a love of music that goes far beyond what I do onstage.” (Dailytelegraph.au, 2017) 

 • ”Tom Petty is my favorite rock star.“ (BST Hyde Park Festival, 2017) 

•  "If you could do a duet with anyone in the world, with whom would it be?” “I would say James Taylor.” (Facebook Q&A, 2014) 

• “So I got got the flamboyancy and the attitude from Janis and then I got the humbleness and the grace from Jimi Hendrix. And then one other thing, I got a little bit of slinky from Grace Slick.(South by Southwest Music Festival, 2013) 

 •"I have striven to live up to the songwriting of Don Henley and Glenn Frey, Jackson Browne and Joni Mitchell.“ (1981) 

• “If I can sit down and be going through a crisis and I can listen to Joni Mitchell or something and I can feel from her that she understands, even though she doesn’t know me, then, for me… I love that, and that’s what I try to do.” (1976)

Here’s just a little of what she has mentioned over the decades: Her Grandad, Leon Russell, The Everly Brothers,  Led Zeppelin, Eagles, Buffalo Springfield, Foo Fighters, Vanessa Carlton, Haim, and so many more. Click here for a playlist containing 73 songs Stevie has mentioned during interviews.

▬ Poets

“Do you have any poets you enjoy?”
Yes, Oscar Wilde and Edgar Allan Poe.” (Q&A, rockalittle.com) 

I think that poets and songwriters have a lot in common because a songwriter really has to be a poet first. That’s how we live our lives. It’s the same kind of thinking. Unlike people who write fiction or make movies, we put our stories into these small little containers filled with mostly short lines and verses. This is how we talk about the way we feel and talk about things and explain the world and ourselves.” (The Creative Independent, 2016)

Books

The Mabinogion Trilogy - Evangeline Walton 

These four fantasy-fiction books by American author Evangeline Walton (The Prince of Annwn, The Children of Llyr, The Song of Rhiannon and The Island of The Mighty) are based on traditional Welsh myths. Someone sent them to me back in 1978 because I’d written a song called Rhiannon 5 years earlier. Walton started her work around 1934 and finished in 1974, which was right around the time that I wrote Rhiannon, so I felt like when her work ended, mine began.

• Wide Sargasso Sea - Jean Rhys

Wide Sargasso Sea is inspired by Bronte’s classic Jane Eyre. The novel explores the life of Mrs Rochester, ‘the wild woman in the attic’, in 1830s Jamaica before she was brought to England by Mr Rochester. Jean Rhys wrote this book as a precursor to Jane Eyre because of her love for the Bronte novel. I saw the film adaptation of the book in the early 1990s and it inspired me to write the song of the same name on my album.

• Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte

I first read Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights (written by Charlotte’s sister Emily Bronte) when I was in college in California in the late 1960s. They are two of my favourite books because they’re just so brilliantly written. The beauty of both these classics is that they were fantastic when I was a teenager and they still appeal to me now as a 63-year-old woman.”

• The Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe

“I’ve read all of Poe’s poetry as well as Lord Byron’s and Oscar Wilde’s. He is deep and brooding - you can make many songs from his poems. I like Byron for the same reason - his characters are dark and intense like Lindsey. Oscar Wilde’s work is more flamboyant, but he was a really good storyteller.”

Out of Africa - Karen Blixen 

 “This memoir recounts the time Karen Blixen (a Danish author) spent in Kenya from 1914. When I saw the 1985 movie version with Meryl Streep and Robert Redford, it just killed me and inspired me to read the book. Both make me sob so much I can hardly breathe. Later, my assistant gave me a beautiful old copy, which makes me treasure the story more. I even stayed in the Karen Blixen suite at the Hotel D'Angleterre in her native Copenhagen. The relationship between Blixten and the Safari hunter Denys Finch Hatton broke my heart. It’s a book about finding and losing love.”

The Little Prince - Antoine de Saint-Exupery 

I first discovered The Little Prince when I was in high school and fell in love with the book straight away. My make-up artist has a tattoo of the Little Prince on the side of her leg, so I’m often reminded of what a beautiful story it is. It’s a sweet fable about the relationship between a little boy and his love for a rose. There is such a strong philosophy of love and loneliness running throughout the book that I can’t help but return to it again and again.” 

The Twilight Series - Stephenie Meyer

Moonlight (A Vampire’s Dream), a song on my new album was written about New Moon. The song is about what happens when a relationship breaks down or, more specifically, when you are abandoned in some way. I could totally relate to that. I think that Meyer’s stories are magnificent and I’m amazed at how she built her complex world. Writing a song seems much simpler that writing a novel - a song is just five verses and a chorus! I think the love story between Edward and Bella is going to live on forever, like Beauty and the Beast.

• “Right now I am reading ‘Wheel of Fortune’ by Susan Howatch.” (Q&A, rockalittle.com, 2000s)

• “On the bookshelves are volumes about the Kabbalah, Madame Blavatsky and Arthurian legend; a copy of The Johns Hopkins Consumer Guide to Drugs sits beside Luxury Hotels of the World.” (Stevie Nicks: a survivor’s story, telegraph.uk, 2007)

• “She is gurgling scales along with a recording of her vocal coach while flipping through a new memoir by Janis Joplin’s road manager. ”Look,“ Nicks says, perking up, “I knew Janis wore sling-back heels.” (Rolling Stone, 2015)

Movies

• Mentioned: Jean Cocteau’s “La Belle et la Bête”, “Mary, Queen of Scots”, “Julia”. 

• Stevie’s favorite horror movie is “The Haunting of Hill House”, however… “Nicks has very little experience with horror: she’s seen only a handful of old horror movies, like “Bride of Dracula”. “They don’t scare me,” she says. “I just love the costumes.” - (AHS:Coven interview, 2014) 

• “I can see a movie—say, it’s a movie with Michael Fassbender called “The Light Between Oceans”—and I can’t get this movie out of my head. The tragedy of this movie is so intense and so beautiful you can hardly stand it and you go home and think about it for days afterwards.” (The Creative Independent, 2016)

▬ TV Shows

• “I worked on the edit of my documentary about the making of In Your Dreams. And then I got pneumonia. With my pneumonia and my mother’s death I watched the entire first season of Game Of Thrones—so that was great! That certainly took my mind off everything.” Not only did the series distract the Grammy winner, but it re-ignited her creativity, inspiring her to write some G.O.T.-centric fan poems. Explains Nicks, “I’ve written a bunch of poetry about it—one for each of the characters. On Jon Snow… On Arya…. On Cersei and Jaime.” She also says that she has a talent crush on the author of the Game of Thrones book series, George R. R. Martin, who is her age, and “would love to write some music” for the show. (VanityFair, 2013)

• Among the TV shows she loves, besides American Horror Story and Million Dollar Listing, are The Good Wife, Ugly Betty, Glee, Elementary (“That guy [Jonny Lee Miller] who used to be married to Angelia Jolie, oh my God, he’s amazing. I’d marry him. In a second”), and “all of the creepy shows,” like the Law and Order franchises, Criminal Minds, NCIS, and NCIS: L.A. (Vulture, 2014)

• “Judging Amy is my favorite!” (Q&A, rockalittle.com)

Food

I ate with Stevie… You have two girls with a sweet tooth, it’s like carnage.” (Chrissie Hynde, talking about Thanksgiving with Stevie, November, 2016) 

I am always on the Weight Watchers diet. I kind of eat food that is fixed for me all over the US. I don’t really get to eat my favorite foods, like vanilla bean ice cream, gelato, cherry pie, and lemon cake, and chocolate chip cookies. I’d love to have them every day, but I don’t. I have to zip back into that long, black, seriously tight dress! (Facebook Q&A, 2014) 

“I eat one yogurt every single night right before I go to bed. It’s my, like, special time.”

Mexican is my favorite, but I don’t eat it very often. I can make a GREAT omelet!“ (Q&A, rockalittle.com) 

It’s so interesting – when my mother was pregnant with me, the only thing she could keep down was enchiladas and refried beans. As for me, whenever I’m sick, the only thing I can tolerate is Mexican food! So the fact that they actually pulled that out of the air was so great. Because if I was ever going to have a restaurant that’s what it would be." 

"Stevie really doesn’t have alot of time to cook… but if we can get her to, she makes one heck of a sandwich!! (It’s all about the sauces she makes…) (Ask Lori [Nicks], rockalittle.com) 

"I just eat the airline food, but I always get a Starbucks soy latte before boarding.” 

"Stevie is an iced tea kind of gal.” (Q&A, Cory Buckingham, 2003)

Passions 

I like antiques, I love old things. I must be very old underneath because I love beautiful old things. I love dancing. I love most of all writing songs. I love animals!“ (1977)

I absolutely still draw. I have 4 drawings out here with me right now. Drawing for me is like a tranquilizer. It puts me into another state of mind and takes me out of the Rock N’ Roll mind and puts me into that drawing I’m working on. I can just sit and draw for hours and hours. It is food for my soul. Someday I will put our my art, just as I have begun putting out my polaroids.“ (Facebook Q&A, 2014) 

Painting in my room that looks over the ocean. That is my favorite thing.“ (Q&A, rockalittle.com)

"I like to decorate! I like to go decorating shopping at furniture stores. I’m constantly changing around the rooms in my house, so that’s something I really love to do. You’ll be at my house one day, and 2 weeks later, you’ll come in and it’ll be different.” (Facebook Q&A, 2014)

“Nicks moves among the collection of colourful Art Deco lamps that stand on every surface, carefully orchestrating the ambient light. ’That’s the famous blue lamp that’s been in lots of photos; that’s a Tiffany,’ she says. ’And so is that one. I don’t know about the others.’ (Stevie Nicks: a survivor’s story, telegraph.uk, 2007) 

Hawaii, Paris, New Zeland.”  
I would have to say it is New York City. There is so much energy in the city, and so much to do there. It is a very exciting city for me.”  (Favorite destinations, Q&A, rockalittle.com)

Stevie actually goes out a lot. In every city she goes shopping and out for dinner, at the least.” (Q&A, Cory Buckingham, 2003) 

Stevie also shops a lot, and in perfect female form, jewelry shopping tops her list. She loves it when a group of people, maybe 8 or more, get together for dinner. She can sit and chat and laugh for hours on end. Literally. Although I didn’t travel with the band, and we were very rarely in the same cities, I do know that Stevie goes out a lot on days off. She loves shopping, whether it be for something she actually needs or wants, or just strolling around window shopping. She and her posse go out to dinner a lot, and also spends time writing and taking pictures. She really a lot of fun.”  (Q&A, Cory Buckingham, 2003)

“You want your journals written by hand in a book, because someday, if you have daughters — I don’t have daughters, but I have fairy goddaughters, thousands of them — all of these books are gonna go to them, and they’re gonna sit around just like we are now, and they’re gonna read them out loud, and they’re going to be able to know what my life was.” (New York Times, 2014)

And finally one of the passions I believe many of us fans share with her:

Make It Everlasting So Nothing’s Incomplete by (9k)

Trying to be conspicuous so he doesn’t startle him, Harry sidles up to Louis and asks, “How’s it going?”

“Alright,” Louis muses, turning his head so he can smile at Harry. “I wish there were explanations about what each of the flowers mean on labels or something, though.”

A thrill runs up Harry’s spine, and he can’t quite temper the grin that spreads across his face as he asks, “Well, I could tell you, if you’d like?”

“Oh, only if you have time, I don’t want to keep you away from your work -”

“Louis,” Harry laughs, gesturing around the empty shop. “There is nobody here and, as luck would have it, there is literally nothing I would like more than to talk to you about flowers.”

your heart is glowing (and i’m crashing into you) by anyadisee (11k)

If this were a fairytale, maybe even a Young Adult novel or a chick flick, this would be the moment where Louis would stare right into his soul and whisper, “You. It’s you, Harry,” before pulling him in for a kiss right there and then in the middle of the sidewalk. They’d confess their never-ending love for each other then hold hands for the rest of the walk home, and then they’d go to uni together and become the ultimate power couple of their campus. They’d start a family together a few years after they graduate, find a large house somewhere nice and preferably warm, get two pet dogs and five cats, and then adopt enough children to start a football team. If only men could get pregnant as well, Harry thinks wistfully. He’d love to carry Louis’ babies given the chance.

But. This isn’t a fairytale, nor is it a movie based off the latest YA bestseller. This is real life.

(harry is in love with love, volunteers to hand out valentine gifts for a week, and somehow becomes the football captain’s secret admirer.)

“I and my best friend, Bob Mulnix got to meet Morrissey filming “Suedehead” on 7 feb 1987 in Fairmount, Indiana. Bob was a friend of Cory Winslow - the cousin of James Dean who lived and grew up on the farm in Fairmount, Indiana.- Bob and i had passed thru the Winslow’s twice when we came back from Florida on our way home to Grand Rapids, Michigan. (Fairmount was actually 6 hours south of Grand Rapids) Cory and his parents always brough us in the house and we always had very nice home cooked meals prepared by Mrs. Winslow - very sweet people! On the evening of 6 february, Bob called Cory for a car part as Bob and Cory were both very into vintage cars and Bob would do some racing of his own at the James Dean event in Fairmount. Cory replied that he had a car part that Bob was looking for and then Cory proceeded to tell Bob that a very famous singer had been filming a music video on their farm and that they were going to be there one more day of filming on sunday. when Bob was told it was "morrissey!” he called me up and we left Grand Rapids at 4am. We arrived about ten am and sure enough, Mrs.Winslow had breakfast prepared! Morrissey pulled up about 11am onto the farm in a large RV and we approached the vehicle with Cory as he knocked and told Gail Colson - Morrissey’s manager at the time - that there were some very big Smiths fans that drove 6 hours to meet Morrissey…Gaill welcomed us in and there he was!!!! Morrissey then invited us to spend the day with him and the crew…….during our initial conversations, Morrissey asked where we got our import records in Grand Rapids…..we told him of a store called the Vinyl Solutution. he took out a pad from Gail and proceeded to write down the store name…..in the kindest and most generous gesture, 3 years later Morrissey premiered his album “Your Arsenal” at an MTV event at midnight at the Vinyl Solution!!!! where we again met and talked…over three thousand fans showed up for the event!! Morrissey is a very kind and witty man…..” - Kevin Cavanaugh

“Hey You”

Hey you, it’s really good to see you,
I’ve got so much to tell you,
But you should know, I’m doing fine

Hey you, had a story to tell you
But honestly, I can’t even remember
Really doesn’t matter

Never seen you this happy,
Never seen you so peaceful
Even though you can’t hold me
Hurts you, hurts me, that you’re here

And when the days are getting dark, nights are getting hard
I see you
And when I laugh until I cry, I don’t even know why
I feel you

Hey you,
Funny thing, I found that old t-shirt
We’d thought you’d lost it, it’s still the softest
You know it made me put on your favorite Radiohead song
It took me back to, when we were driving, down Laurel Canyon
Too fast, you know you never slowed down

Final days were the hardest, I didn’t think they would be your last
Hope you know I forgive you, give anything to get them back
But know that everything’s okay,
I’m doing okay without you
I know you had to go away,
I’ll tell you everyday, I miss you.

Hey you, I know you always like to get the last words in
Before you go, you should know
I love you more
I said so

Old Erwin

I spoke to Erwin twice in my entire life, but I saw him almost every day while going to school. I’d pass on the other side of the street and naturally turn my head to the right to see him. An old man with patchy graying hair under a worn brown hat and squinty eyes.

That was Old Erwin.

He’d always been around as far as I knew. As a little kid he frightened me, I’d cling to my mom and ask her to hurry up. I didn’t want to be near the ‘creepy hobo’. Over time, I got used to his presence on the street corner. He was like a statue, a part of the structure.

Erwin never caused any trouble. He was quiet and although he usually had this empty rusty can next to where he tended to sit, he never asked passerbys for cash. And whatever money he did have went to taking care of the friends he had. The furry or feathery ones.

“What are you doing here” Liam asked looking at Theo confused after he just saved him by dragging him I to a lift. “I’m beginning to think the same but for now you can blame my sister!” Theo panted looking round “she got a call from Mason but it went off, she dragged me here to save your ass.” Liam stuck looked confused “y/n is here” fear lined his voice. Theo shook his head “I really don’t know what she see in you” he said laughing, “she’s waiting at the car. come we need to go” Theo told him. “shouldn’t we going all the way down” Liam said as theo looked out the lift doors. “no! They’ll be expecting that and already have people with guns waiting for us. This way” Theo ordered. Liam stopped “mason and Cory” he said listening to the faint sound of his friends voice. Liam ran with Theo chasing behind him “Liam stop your gonna get us killed” he tried to whisper shout. 

***
You got fed up waiting for Theo to save your boyfriend. Being human you was told to wait in the car like always, but they had been half an hour now, you was starting to worry. Walking to the doors you find them locked. Walking round you saw Cory’s car feeling a little better they was around too. You found an open window sneaking init, inside a small room. Your slipped out looking for the others. The empty evacuated hospital was something you wasn’t used to. You could feel your heart pounding when you heard unknown voices, rushing into closest door. Inside you you almost screamed when you saw Nolan knocked out on the floor. Finding some smelling salts you waved it under his nose. Nolan looked at you white with a fearful expression, you smiled holding out your hand “who did that your friends or mine” you asked helping him to his feet. “I don’t think I have any friends left” he said. “not everyone is as unforgiving as your friends” you smiled. The door opened and Nolan shouted what he out but before you could so anything Gabe hit you the head with his gun.
***
Liam and Theo stood looking round the corner at 5 men all armed guarding a chained door. “I’m guessing their in there” Liam said. Theo looked at him with raised eyebrows, “really, and I thought they was gonna be in the car park” he said sarcastically. Liam growled at him before looking back round the corner. “five of them they must be scared to have five guarding the door” Liam said. they both nodded at each other a silent way of saying go! they both ran hitting, kicking and punching their way to the door. Theo took a bullet to the shoulder protecting Liam. another hunter came out about to start shooting Liam watched at Mason and Corey appeared in the hallway and the man go down. Liam ran and hugged Mason, “right their safe can we get out of here now” Theo said still looking round breathless holding his shoulder, he couldn’t help think this was all to easy. As they got to a nurse’s station they heard the crackle of a hunters radio “Liam, Theo I see you got mason and Corey but have someone who wants to say hi” Gabe’s voice came though. the boys all looked at each other confused. they heard muffling “talk and bitch being the only clear words. the loud smacking sound came next followed by a small whine "ow”. Liam and Theo both growled flashing their eyes yellow when they heard y/n voice come through the radios.
***
Gabe had you tied to a chair. “This will make them come to our trap and make them vulnerable” he said to Nolan pacing up and down. Nolan hadn’t done much since you came round, he’d tried to tell Gabe this was bad idea and they should get out just like Monroe had but Gabe hit him telling him to shut up this was Gabe’s way off getting both of them back in Monroe’s good books after failing to kill Liam. Gab had a tablet with some of the hospitals cctv on, he waited, watching. After seeing the group take down the hunters he got the radio talking to your brother and boyfriend. when he wanted them to know  they had you there, trying to keep quiet you didn’t speak shaking your head head at him. Gabe smacked your face hard making you scream out in pain “come find her before I kill her” Gabe said. you heard the growls coming back at you groaning that they will come. it felt like ages since Gabe contacted them, you was starting to get nervous and so was the other two by the looks. Gabe kept pacing looking out the doors every now an then. Nolan sat in the corner watching Gabe trying not to look at you, his hands shaking. “this is not a very smart plan” you say looking between them.
Since Monroe handed Gabe a weapon he had this extra added arrogance  about him you wanted to play on.  "really the two members of Scotts pack his beta his here and I have someone they both care about hostage" he said turning to you. “I can see them coming before they even know what room where in how is it bad” I had detracted Gabe now to play on Nolan. “well” I start calm “as you say you have two if Scott’s wolfs here, you also have his two angriest wolfs and looking at how Nolan is shaking I’m guessing the anku….. What ever that thing is called is here. Now you now what that does to liam” you say looking right into Nolan eyes “makes him angrier them normal, and well we all know how unpredictable my brother can be” you say giving a smirk almost identical to Theo’s.
***
“we need a plan!” Liam said. Mason and Corey stood back not knowing their words wouldn’t be heard by the panicked wolfs “I say we go in rip Gabe and Nolan apart and get her out” Theo said like it was nothing. “where not killing anyone, I just need to think”. Theo growled “while your thinking they could be hurting her or worse” Theo said pushing liam against the wall he shoved him back the pair starting to fight. Corey and Mason stepped in pulling them apart, “look we’re fighting them not each other” mason told them. “what if we do what Scott said fight blind, take out the power blind them that way we have an advantage” Corey said. Liam and Theo looked nodding “it could help” Liam said sending mason and Corey to the roof.
***
Gabe started hitting the screen of the the tablet “what’s wrong with this thing” he said to himself. You watched him walk out looking round the corridor before the door blocked your view. “why are you still friends with him” you asked Nolan who was still struggling to look at you. “why was you nice to me and help me before when you found me unconscious?” he asked getting to his feet. “because I know before all this the was some good in you and this war is about humanity and I think if both side showed it more we wouldn’t need this war, Liam could of killed you but he didn’t, Scott and the pack could of killed half of your army but hasn’t. Why? Because that’d not what we do, that’s the lied Gerard and Monroe and let you all believe” you tell him knowing without Gabe you mite have a chance at getting Nolan on your side if not the packs side. You could see him thinking “if we go out there they will kill me” he said low. “who” you said back to him “all of them” he raised his eyebrows at you. “if you untie me, I promise I won’t let Liam or Theo hurt you” you tell him struggling against the restraints. After a few minutes of thinking he came and untied you. Outside the room you and Nolan heard voices of man like he was talking on a phone or radio, “go!” Nolan told you as you ran down the hallway you heard Nolan talking “yes they ran to the stairs” he lied pointing a different way to what you ran, you wasn’t looking in front of you when Gabe grabbed you.
***
Liam and Theo stood in the lift, “we fight together all differences aside” Theo said holding out his fist, Liam nodded matching it. In the lift they could hear the heart beats of roughly 6 or 7 people they flashed their eyes golden. The doors opened, they ran at them, both wolfs fought in perfect sync. They had taken down at least 6 of the hunters, they looked round smirking at each other, they was about to fist bump their efforts when they heard a noise behind them. They turned to see Gabe holding y/n with a gun to her head. Both boys froze unsure what to do.
***
You looked wide eyed at them, the pressure of the barrel in your head was starting to hurt. “don’t move” Gabe told them turning the gun towards Theo. You took the chance to head butt him making let go of the tight grip he had on you. Both Liam and Theo ran to me, Theo took a shot to the shoulder as Liam fought with Gabe for control of the weapon. Everything next was so fast to you. Watching Liam and Gabe you didn’t notice Theo pull you to safety, of exactly when a final gunman showed you shooting at Liam’s direction. Liam headbutted Gabe breaking free as the other hunter shoots hitting Gabriel in the chest, looking round the corner you see Nolan knock out the final hunter. Liam runs to you holding you tight you wrap your arms around him hugging him back. Theo walks over to Gabe “it hurts” Gabe repeats over and over as he crawls to the cabinets. Theo holds his arm in his hands, both his and Gabe’s veins turn black. “does it hurt anymore?” Theo said. You didn’t know mason and Corey until mason’s whisper break the silence “I guess Theo does care.” all watched as Gabe took his last breath feeling emotional. Terror, sadness and relief and rolled into one. Theo walked over still holding his shoulder as it slowly healed. “let’s get out of her see if Scott needs us” he said walking to the lift.
In the car you sat next to Liam letting Theo drive. Liam hadn’t let go of you, he sat in the middle of the back seat holding you close your head on his shoulder. “you saved me, thank you” you said to him smiling up. “hey so did I!” you heard Theo say from the driver’s seat.“your my brother you kind of had too” you answer back with you normal hint is sass, now back you was feeling safe again. Liam laughed at Theo ring his eyes. He felt you tighten your hold for a second making it an extra hug within a cuddle. “I had to save you y/n” he said lifting your chin so you look him in the eyes “because I love you and wouldn’t know what I would do if lost you” he kissed you giggling when he felt you smile against his lips. “I love you too Liam” you say kissing him again now you was laughing hearing the huff out of Theo “I like you two but can’t you do that when I’m not here” he shouted. You and Liam held each other the rest of the way knowing you would both do anything for the other.

So, I finally went to my first local aquarium meeting tonight, which was awesome. It had a mix of ages, which was nice. They had a guest speaker in tonight who has been all over Asia learning about fishing farms, and stuff, which was fascinating.

I also won a couple of items: a feeder ring and a fox-tail algae sponge.

There was also an auction, where I got a bag of floating plants for $2 and…

These cuties! I got five of them for $9. They’re going to going into this quarantine tub for the week with a dewormer, and then they’ll be introduced into the blackwater 23G with the Betta albimarginata pair and amano shrimp.

I’ve always wanted panda cories, and now I have thme. ;_; <3 They’re so tiny, cute, and fast!

Lucaya fic

Although the show is over, I’m still not done writing about Lucas and Maya. I love their chemistry and everything about them, as well from other characters like Riley and Farkle. Therefor, if you are bored or looking for something to read maybe you could check my stories and please leave reviews to see what you think of them, I value all the comments.

Thank you!

You, again. - Maya keeps finding this same Texas guy, over and over again. Until the point where she really doesn’t know when she began feeling that she knew him already.

Fresh Start. - What if things would have been different and Maya was the hot blonde New York City girl that had moved to Austin, Texas because of an incident regarding her best friend safety? How would her interactions with Lucas and Zay be and how this moving would change her? People change people, that’s the secret of life. (This one was actually inspired by two other fics and one of them is The Art of Seduction from tiramisuspice which is the greatest author for Lucaya fanfic and I love it so please go and read that)

Written on your body.  - It was a simply deed: Your skin is a map to your soulmate- if you drew something on your skin it would dissipate and then appeared into your soulmates skin, but it was different with scars and bruises those would stay in both of you. Lucas already knew who his soulmate was, but how could he tell the blonde beauty that he was hers? (I just began this one)

Arranged. - Lucas and Maya are heir and heiress, each one from their respective rich family. Nonetheless Maya’s family ends up making a deal with Lucas’ family in order to save the family business: an arranged marriage between Lucas and Maya. Nonetheless they hate each other at the beginning, could that change with the pass of time?

The Wake-Up Call.  - Now that they are in High School the triangle mess hasn’t been solved and neither Lucas or Riley are doing anything to change that. But now Maya is tired from it, she wants change, she wants to move on and that is when she meets Jordan. Will Jordan be able to be the wake-up call that Lucas needed to realize that he loved Maya?

We found love. - A series of one-shots, prompts, etc. That I will post here and on Lucaya FanFiction on tumblr. All genres, I hope and Lucaya.

Senior Year.  - Senior Year it’s here- The hive five are about to enter the last year of High School and there’s nothing better. Lucas and Maya through time have develop an awesome relationship until the point that she has considered seeing Lucas like something else than just a friend. Would they be able to pass this year against all the obstacles?

Losing you. - "I will never speak to you again.“ Maya said clear as water, she began to feel tears pooling in her eyes and she walked away, she couldn’t see this, he made his choice and she made hers. The moment where Lucas began to lose her.

Your world, My world.  -Riley and Maya hadn’t been themselves in a while, the tension between them had grown, each one wanted to gain Lucas’ heart and it reached the point where neither were thinking about the other like they always had. Call it universe, magic or destiny but it decided to fix Riley’s and Maya’s broken relationship in not such a traditional way. Each one would have to live and see the world from the others point of view.

It never stopped.  -Riley and Lucas are getting married, everyone is happy and everyone think it’s meant to be, they are going to be the next Cory and Topanga. But the love that Lucas and Maya had never stopped, will Maya step aside again?

Thank you with all my heart if you end up reading them and leaving your reviews!
