FINALLY, six months after I was commissioned, this thing is done.
I’m truly sorry to my donation winner, Cindy. Lord knows you never asked to put up with my procrastinating ass.
But I’m truly happy with how this turned out! And I hope you, Cindy, and the rest of y'all are too!
This work is a part of the Fandom Trumps Hate auction. Check out some other cool works and support these charities this movement helps!
Never had Castiel been checked out with such scrutiny.
The man walked around him, eyes slowly dragging over his body, just on this side of appreciative. They were green and critical under contemplative eyebrows, pushed together to form a crease in the middle that Castiel kind of wanted to poke. The man’s arms were crossed over his chest, his thumb playing with his lower lip as he circled.
Castiel just stood, arms loose at his sides, posture normal which was to say terrible. He watched the man watching him.
“Well,” the man said, facing Castiel but also kind of facing the large camera he’d brought with him. “The suit is awful but we can work with it. Are you sure I can’t talk you out of the trench coat?”
Castiel shook his head, his mouth grim.
The man sighed. “Well, I’ll figure something out.”
He then explained to Castiel some of what he was going to be doing. Usually the exposition would take place among the five men who hosted, but Castiel understood this was a special case. The usual five men to do the job was now one.
“Hi, and welcome to
Queer Eye for the Straight Guy
: celebrity edition. Where instead of the Fab Five, who are all experts in their fields, you have me, Dean Winchester, a bisexual hockey player who is slightly above average at these things.”
Castiel was, in this scenario, ‘the straight guy.’ He supposed that description fit simply by process of elimination. He knew he wasn’t gay because he did not wish to have sex with men. He didn’t particularly want to have sex with women but he liked them well enough: enjoyed the softness of their lips when they’d kissed him and liked their smell and general company.
So yes, Castiel could be the straight guy.
Although Dean Winchester’s shoulders looked very nice…
“Today’s victim is Castiel Novak: world renowned entymologist specializing in honey bees. His latest research publication is receiving all kinds of awards so he’s going to have a little celebration tonight. That’s where I’m here to help.”
“Okay, Cas, it may only be me, but I’ve still got some hired guns to help me move shit – er – junk around your apartment.” Dean turned to a woman wearing headphones. “Do I have to say that again?”
She smiled and rolled her eyes. “If you would, please.”
Dean sighed and repeated himself, this time leaving out the swear word.
This was all far too much production for Castiel. He preferred quiet libraries or the gentle hum of apiaries to the clapboards and shouted instructions of a television set.
“A necessary evil
“his agent had called it. “
How do you expect to get more funding, Castiel, if no one cares about your research?”
Castiel had thought this quite unfair and demonstratively untrue. Plenty of people cared about his research! Students and… kindergarten teachers…
Castiel supposed those groups didn’t pay very much. He may have seen Meg’s point.
He didn’t know why that meant he had to be involved with a reality show, though. He glowered at the camera.
Dean smiled at him, unaffected. “I have given the crew my instructions so now I can whisk you away for a fun makeover montage.”
GENRE: fluff, porn, soppiness, more porn
SUMMARY: the ibiza honeymoon nobody asked for.
@robertsuggles is responsible. also sorry to mer who had to listen to me whine about this constantly.
“So where are you taking me, then?” Aaron asks, rooting around in his bag for his passport.
Robert’s driving, stretched out and languid even in a car, one hand on his thigh, the other on the steering wheel. “Nobody’s spoiled the surprise this time around?”
There’s a wry twist to Robert’s mouth, but Aaron feels momentarily guilty. He’s still gutted they never got to Vegas, but is sure whatever Robert’s got planned will make up for it. “Mum’s not blabbed, you know that.“
Robert brushes a hand through Aaron’s hair. His eyes flick to the road as the cars inch forward a little, but looks back as soon as they’ve crawled to a stop. “Clue: a holiday destination, you love it, I think it’s tacky.”
Aelin and Rowan off to go kick butt in the streets. My little badass bitch and her birdy Boy. <3<br> Now as we can see, I def excel at animals more than humans, lol, little Rowan looks so fuzzy. <3<br> Color in coming soon! <3<br>Thanks for the support and Love!
Hello! To start off your Ambassador work, can you tell us about snacks that are popular in your country? Thank you! (If you would like a different question, let me know)!
Okie Dokie let’s do this!
Popular foods/snacks in Ireland
(Please note: though most of these are exclusively Irish, you find similar products in the UK. For now though I’ll try and keep it 100% Irish!)
Behold. The quintessential Irish snack. It doesn’t really get more Irish than this, and many Irish people living abroad would tell you that this is one of the number 1 things they miss about home. Think of any crisps you know, but better (and more flavourful). They come in a variety of flavours, (salt and vinegar, and smokey bacon to name a few) but nothing beats the great, iconic cheese and onion. The Tayto brand is quite big here and has become a bit of a cultural phenomenon (we have an entire Tayto theme park for godssake).Other Irish crisps worth mentioning would be Hunky Dorys, Chipsticks, Wheelies, Hula Hoops, Kings, I could go on lads.
OH. And i think it’s also worth mentioning that Tayto/ Kings sandwiches with butterare quite popular here (it sounds weird at first but trust me you’re missing out)
Now I kinda had to do a bit more thinking for this as most of the stuff we have in Ireland is also available in the UK. But after brainstorming for a bit I have compiled a list of sweet things that can only be found in The Emerald Isle (oooh).
(Very coconut, mashmallow-y based biscuits, very nice, Mikados being my personal favourite ;))
Snack Bars (the purple ones)
(and the pink ones)
I know Cadbury’s is a British chocolate brand, but from what I know, I think they only sell the yellow snack bar there, so technically these can count as Irish snacks whOOPS (they are missing out tho omg :O )
Yeah, i wasn’t joking before when i said that we really like Taytos here in Ireland. So much so that they thought it’d be a great idea to combine Cheese and Onion Taytos with Milk chocolate to create this thing. While Taytos and milk chocolate go nicely together, I think I speak for a lot of people when I say they should be enjoyed seperately.
Unfortunately (if you look at it that way), both of these bars have been discontinued and are no longer available on the market :,(.
*My Heart Will Go On faintly playing in the distance*
I wasn’t whether this could only be found in Ireland until I introduced it to some of the other Ambassadors who claimed they had never seen this before in their life so it’s goin’ on the list!
There’s this sort of urban legend that it was banned in Europe for being carcinogenic, but whether that’s true or not, we may never know…
Should we be slightly concerned? Probably. Do we care though? Not really lol
Another staple Irish beverage! Personally, I don’t really like this, but it’s the type of drink where you either love it or hate it, so please don’t let my opinion stop you from trying it if you ever get the chance!
T E A
oh boi where do i even start
Tea is a VERY big part of Irish culture and the way someone takes their tea is taken veery seriously among some people.
The most popular brands of tea here would be Lyons or Barry’s (You have to pick one of the other, never both)
Generally, it is served with milk and/or sugar, or just plain black. A lot of people are very particular with the way they like their tea. So if you ever find yourself in a situation where you have to make tea for someone, proceed with caution.
Anyway, I think that’s all I have for now! Did I miss anything? If you want to know more about Irish cuisine, or anything about Ireland in general, feel free to drop an ask or message and I’ll be happy to help!
