it's not even up for debate

Introduction: Hi! I’m Annie, I recently graduated as valedictorian of a class of almost 700, and I’m about to be a freshman at Johns Hopkins (go blue jays!!). High school was some of the best and worst moments of my life, and looking back, there are so many things that I wish I’d done and things that made me successful, so I wanted to share them! Of course, disclaimer, these tips may not apply to everyone!

(These tips generally apply to all classes, but if you have a specific subject you want tips on, I’ve taken these AP courses: european history, world history, us gov’t, macroeconomics, lang, lit, calc ab, chemistry, physics 1, physics c, environmental science, art: drawing, biology, human geography, chinese, and art history. Feel free to message me!)

College applications are a crapshoot- I can’t begin to tell you the number of incredible, brilliant people with extraordinary, international level achievements that got denied at top schools in favor of those lacking those accomplishments. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean those who got in don’t have qualities that earned them a spot, it just speaks to the unpredictable nature of the college application process. When deans of admission at top schools openly say they could reject all admitted students and build the same exemplary class from the waitlist, or that they have enough qualified applicants to fill 3 or 4 classes with, there’s a certain amount of luck involved. Therefore I urge all rising seniors to go into this process realizing that the odds are not in your favor. I went into the process with too much blind hope, too confident in my ability to be that lucky 1 in 10 (or less) that would gain admission, and I was sorely disappointed. So that leads me to my next tip…

Don’t do things just for your college application- Those slim acceptance rates are the exact reason I urge you not to join things solely for how good they look on a college application. It seems counterintuitive; wouldn’t they give you a better chance of acceptance? However, my point is not to dissuade you from extracurriculars, but rather to commit to ones that genuinely make you happy. As I wrote above, the process is so competitive that even international achievements may mean rejection, so don’t waste your high school experience by dedicating so much time and effort to something that you feel obligated to do.

Try everything your freshman and sophomore year- My biggest regret is not joining clubs where my passions lie simply because I was too lazy or scared of things like public speaking my freshman year. It’s much more intimidating to join as upperclassmen, and you may not be able to participate at all the levels/in all the ways people who have dedicated 3-4 years can. Even if you don’t think its for you (like debate for me because of my fear of public speaking), I urge you to expand your horizons and push yourself out of your comfort zone. Many clubs give you great opportunities to build leadership, public speaking, etc. skills and to find your passions.

Know both sides of the flashcard- I learned this tip from my organic chemistry class, and I’d never though about how useful it is. For example, if you’re memorizing polyatomic ions, it’s extremely important that you know both the formula and the name, as either version may show up on the exam. Not doing this also makes the weaknesses in your memorization evident- whenever I study vocab, I tend to glance at the side with the term and only memorize the definition. This meant that when I was given only the definitions, I couldn’t remember the word they defined, because I was so used to being given the vocab word and responding with the definition. 

The first lecture of the unit is one of the most important for STEM classes- I know the beginning of the unit can often seem like the perfect time to tune out, as it goes over information you’ve previously learned or the easiest material of the topic, but it often forms the foundation for everything else in the unit. For example, the first lecture on a stoichiometry unit will probably teach you dimensional analysis, a skill integral to calculating molecular or empirical formulas, moles or grams of a substance, etc. 

Buy/sell books secondhand- Everyone knows how expensive college textbooks are, but between SAT and AP prep books, and books for English, high school books can cost quite a bit of money too. Unless they redesigned the exam recently, you absolutely don’t need the newest edition of the review book, so buy from upperclassmen and then sell it to underclassmen the following year.

Learn to self study- Unless you’re really lucky, you’re guaranteed to have a teacher who doesn’t teach, teaches badly, or whose teaching style just doesn’t work for you. Personally, I find that self learning, especially if I’m struggling because resources such as textbooks and online explanations, and videos seem to contradict, really helps me understand the topic throughly. In AP bio, my teacher had us create claymation videos on the processes of cellular respiration and photosynthesis independently. It was incredibly frustrating and confusing because all the resources described the cycles in varying degrees of details, but I felt like I genuinely understood the topic, instead of having been spoon-fed the information and memorizing it. Obviously, this method isn’t very efficient for frequent use, but the key is to try to understand the material independently instead of going to the teacher the moment you hit a snag. 

Keep your backpack/binders/notebooks reasonably organized- When teachers ask for homework to be passed up and you have to dig through mountains of papers in your backpack, not only is that super stressful, but a lot of teachers won’t let you turn it in after they have already collected all the papers. I was definitely guilty of being lazy and just stuffing papers, once I got them, into my backpack instead of taking a few seconds to slide them into a binder, and as a result I got 0s on lots of homework because either I couldn’t find it at the time or because everything was so messy I didn’t remember there was homework. Try to have some sort of organization system going on or at least a homework folder, because those 0s add up and can be the difference between an 89 and 90. 

You’re gonna get senioritis, badly, and that’s ok- I’ve always been the type of person who did every homework assignment and was very focused on grades, so the idea that I would completely let myself ago seemed absurd to me. Don’t underestimate what senior year does to you. I can honestly count on one hand the econ worksheets that I actually turned in during senior year, and I made my first B in a grading period during the spring. I was very stressed about how awful my grades were, but unable to muster the energy to do anything about it. And you know what, it’s ok. It’s senior year, you can give yourself a break. Yes, your senior grades are still important for college applications, so don’t go from straight A’s to straight C’s, but for the most part, all the hard work is behind you. Do keep in mind that these habits may haunt you when you’re a college freshman. I haven’t started classes yet, but based on how little I studied for the math placement exam for my college, senioitis doesn’t magically end when you graduate, so don’t let it get completely out of control during the year. 

Learn how to do math without a calculator- If you take either of the AP Calculuses or the SAT, you need to master this skill because there are sections of the exams that are strictly non-calculator.  Beyond that, when you get to calculus, you’ll be introduced to complicated concepts, where not being able to multiply by hand will drag you down. 

Keep old notes- Not only for finals, but some topics are very interdisciplinary, like biochemistry, so it’s very important that you have a working knowledge of both biology and chemistry. As you take advanced classes, such as for me, taking physics c after physics 1, it will be assumed that you have completely mastered the basics, and they will be skipped or referenced very quickly. It is very useful to look at notes on the basics, which provide the foundation for the advanced material you learn. 

Invest in a whiteboard- Whenever I was learning about processes or cycles, from the Krebs cycle to organic chemistry mechanisms, it was really useful to practice drawing the steps over and over again. Then when it came to the test, I could do a brain dump and draw out the information as a reference. 

Understand formulas instead of blindly memorizing- This basically has physics and calculus written all over it. In physics, you should be given formula charts during exams, and in any case, something like F=ma isn’t terribly hard to memorize. The problem comes when there are a multitude of formulas that are derived from one of the fundamental equations. Of course, deriving from scratch each time is incredibly tedious, but I want to dissuade you from simply memorizing it or storing it on your calculator, because that means you probably don’t understand the physics behind it. What makes physics so difficult and different from any other subject you’ve taken is that every problem will have a slightly different scenario that tests your understanding of the physics behind it. 

Use all the time given to you during tests- I know I hate looking back through my test because I just get so bored halfway through, but missing points because of silly mistakes is honestly the most frustrating thing ever when you had plenty of time to check. Depending on if I have time, I like to cover my original work and resolve the question. If checking answers is not your thing, try slowing now when you first see each question, and checking your work briefly each step. 

Form study groups- Talking about something, especially teaching it to someone, always helped me remember something so much better than reading it on paper. It’s also so important to have second interpretations of the information you’re studying to ensure that you don’t make a huge misconception.  

AP students: released/practice exams are your best friend- Obviously, they’re the best resources for studying for the AP exam, but they’re also a great tool for a hint at what your teacher’s tests may look like. AP teachers have access to tons of College Board material and will often use questions directly from old exams. 

If you start getting confused during a lecture- Many times this is because I didn’t pay attention during the very beginning, so I’m missing that important foundation I talked about in the previous tip. Of course, I typically wouldn’t recommend doing things other than listening to what is currently being taught, but in this case, I would just get more confused and it’s a waste of time. So I discretely go back to my previous notes and focus on understanding them. 

The most stressful part of schoolwork is just thinking about your assignments- There’s always specific period of time that threatens to kill me- a week where I had two competitions simultaneously, in cities 3 hours apart. When you’re taking 7 AP classes at the same time, just reading over your to-do list will make you want to cry. Even on a normal day, as I go to classes throughout the day and my list of homework gets longer and longer, it makes me so stressed to where I’m planning out how to finish everything and I’m no longer listening in class. It overwhelmed me so much that I just wanted to take a nap and avoid school. But every single time, stressing about the work I have is 1000x worse than sitting down and actually going through each task. I find that what had seemed impossible before was very doable, and many times I even finished early enough to relax before bed. Keep a positive mindset, don’t underestimate your abilities, and have the discipline to start working immediately on the hardest days, and you’ll be fine. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the workload that is able to be handled by one person can work for another, and things like mental illnesses are things I have no experience in, so this is definitely just something that worked for me and is not applicable to everyone. 


Best of luck with high school! If you have any questions, feel free to send me an ask!

'Supernatural': Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki say the boys aren't going 'full-mope'
To read more on Supernatural, pick up the new issue of Entertainment Weekly on stands Friday. You can buy the whole set now, or purchase the individual covers of the group shot, Jensen Ackles, Jare…

Okay, so here’s the thing I LOVE about this article:

“Dean is going to be throwing himself into the job now more than ever. “He’s essentially grieving by burying himself in work,” Jensen Ackles says. But don’t expect him to be enthusiastic about it. “He’s still going to fight the fight, but there’s less passion there because of the loss that he’s dealing with,” Ackles continues”

“Dean is focusing on the task at hand. His attitude, as Ackles puts it, is, “I’m not going to think about what I’ve lost. In turn, I’m just going to focus on what I can fix.” That leads Dean down what Ackles calls a “hopeless road.”

“Ackles adds, “That’s not interesting to me. What’s more interesting is the person who looks like everything’s fine when you are fully aware that everything is not fine.

Now. What Jensen is doing here is quite literally spelling out the subtext. He is confirming that Dean has layers. He is literally telling us that Dean is not what he appears at surface level. That the surface reading is incorrect.

I have read posts from people which have infuriated me because they say that we are idiots for thinking Dean is anything other than black and white. Mr “everything is surface level I don’t have any deep thoughts” Winchester apparently, and I have to SCREAM in IM to long suffering friends about it because I can’t believe how blind these people are all for the sake of disproving something as obvious as Dean being bisexual and multifaceted. (sorry @tinkdw and @elizabethrobertajones as I know I bug you guys the most)

Jensen is literally spelling it out for us here. He is saying that he plays Dean in layers. That when Dean acts like he is “fine” he is most definitely not fine. That Dean will bury himself in the job, the hunt, because he is in so much pain he can’t bare to think about what he has lost (hint: EVERYTHING).

When you watch 13x02 and feel disappointed because Dean is not crying into his pillow remember this article. Remember Jensen’s words. When you see anti’s laughing in their deluded idiocy and using Dean’s “bury himself in hunting” attitude to “prove” that he doesn’t care about Cas at all, remember Jensen’s words. 

By claiming or even attempting to claim that Dean doesn’t care, that Dean isn’t burying his grief and pain and depression over losing Cas, you are effectively saying Jensen isn’t doing his job properly. 

Even if you don’t ship destiel, the level of absolute delusion you must have if you don’t believe that Dean cares for and loves Cas on a deep and visceral level must be through the roof. I’d actually be worried about your grasp on reality if that is the case. This isn’t up for debate anymore. Dean loving Cas is a fact. Its canon. You can argue the difference between it being platonic or romantic love til the cows come home, but denying Dean’s grief? Denying Jensen’s absolutely fucking spectacular acting in 13x01 in which I physically ached in my heart over seeing such raw pain on the screen? That’s just ludicrous. 

The show has been telling us this shit for YEARS about Dean, sometimes pretty much textually, but if that didn’t make it obvious enough for you, maybe you’ll actually listen to Jensen himself, god knows you love to quote other (quite silly and out of context) things he’s said enough times.

Otayuri High School AU (because of reasons)

-Yuri is the freshman sports prodigy on the track team (because most schools probably dont have a figure skating team)

-Otabek is the senior captain of the debate club (trust me ok? just hear me out)

-Yuri gets dragged to a debate by Viktor who wants to watch his “sweet adorable Yuuri win!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

-People recognize Yuri and find it weird that the angry track team freshman is watching a debate with school heartthrob Viktor Nikiforov

- Otabek sits at the end of the table in the captain’s position with Yuuri on his left and isnt Otabek that guy that Mila keeps talking about ???

-Yuri tries to focus of the debate (not like he wanted to watch people argue anyway) but he cant ???????? because Otabek keeps doing this thing with his jaw and its really attractive distracting OF NO SIGNIFICANCE WHAT SO EVER

-Yuri thinks it’s weird that Otabek hasnt said a word throughout the whole match because he’s the captain so ???? shouldnt he be ????? you know ???? doing something ?????

-Viktor suddenly gets really excited when the opposing school calls out Otabek on his silence

-Yuri is really confused because the whole room is silent and even Viktor finally shut up so what is he missing ????????

-the opposing school looks really smug (Yuri is not happy bc he has that school spirit) when Otabek clears his throat and stands

-he has no notes ??????

-everyone else had notes ??????? so where are Otabek’s notes ??????

-there’s a beat of silence and Otabek barely says twenty words but even Yuri knows that the debate is over and holy shit his voice-IMEANWHAT

-he has to know more about this Word Magician because who cares about running when this boy just shut up a table of annoying teenagers ???

-Viktor and Mila tease him senselessly about his “little crush” WHICH IT IS NOT

-he just happens to find him… admirable

-turns out, when they do meet, that otabek had been the one admiring him ever since he joined the track team

-bc otabek just loves the grace and speed that Yuri seems to so naturally possess ????

-but Yuri, who has never been good with words or conversation, cant get over how easily Otabek is able to get out of conversations or keep them going without really saying/doing much ????

-they become besties quickly after they meet and are pretty much inseparable

-you really cant have one without the other involved in some way (they’re texting each other or talking on the phone or they’re both present)

-otabek picks Yuri up from track and cheers him on at races

-yuri goes to all of otabek’s debates and is honestly the most excited person there

-they call each other Beka and Yura obviously mila teases Yuri about it to no end

-eventually, they both realize they have it bad for each other and no amount of teasing is going to make it any easier im looking at you mila

-oops

major-trouble  asked:

You need to tell that story immediately.

The Colin Mochrie story? Gladly. This is a good story.

So I go to this college, and it can best be described as a little weird. It desperately wants to be Cambridge, but it’s not Cambridge, so it takes out its frustration with not being Cambridge on weird collective mockeries of Cambridge stuff. So far so good.

One of these weird mockeries is the debate club.

It’s hard to even properly call the Literary Institute a debate club - it is a club, and it does debates, but the debates are 100% stand-up comedy in a parliamentary format and the other half is bullshit pantomiming. For instance, every year at matriculation, the club drunkenly rushes the stage, interrupts the ceremony, and calls everyone in the audience a horse’s ass (occasionally while quoting Dune). It also puts on a yearly event called ‘Tuck-Ins’, in which people in the dorms can sign up (or sign their friends up) to have the entire LIT burst into their room, give them bedtime snacks, give them bedtime beer, sing some bedtime songs, and tell them a bedtime story. Except, the LIT never does anything seriously, so the bedtime song was always Barrett’s Privateers and the bedtime story was almost always something we called ‘The Rat Story’. Let me tell you about the Rat Story.

The Rat Story was a piece of… literature… that a LIT member dragged out of the dregs of the internet many years ago. Nobody knows where it came from, and my efforts to find it again were unsuccessful, but good lord, it was bad. It was a page-and-a-half-long Hermione/Wormtail (rat form) smut fic and it was awful. So awful. I’m cringing just thinking about it. It’s the worst thing I’ve ever read, and at this point I basically know it by heart. We read it aloud, from the poorly worded introduction to its horrible closing line (AND HE SCAMPERED AWAY WET! STUNNED! AND THRILLED!) dozens of times in a single night to unsuspecting students. It was an experience.

Now you might be wondering how Colin Mochrie fits into this.

So, one of the other things my college does powerfully and often is pretension. We are the most pretentious college you will ever see, and our college clubs are proof positive of this. Every year, various college clubs send out dozens of official-sounding letters inviting our various favourite well-known-people to attend our meagre college events (I, as president of the James Bond Society, personally invited Barack Obama, Sean Connery, and the Queen to our AGM). However, this year the Comedy Club was riding particularly high, and it sent out quasi-sincere invitations to speak to a variety of Canadian comedians.

And Colin Mochrie showed up, one fateful Tuck-Ins night.

He gave a talk, which was very good, but noticed as the talk finished that many students were rushing away to something in an awful hurry. We explained that it was the night of Tuck Ins, an important and sacred college tradition and that

We would be delighted if he would join us.

And that, my friends, is the story of how I found myself crammed in a dorm room with 20 other people, listening to Colin Mochrie describe Peter Pettigrew’s rat boner to a couple of second years who had no idea what they were getting into.

i don’t know if ya’ll are watching the gifted but here are a few reasons why you should

  • its basically an x-men show and x-men is the best marvel, not up for debate
  • cool new powers not seen in the xmcu
  • they portray mutants how they were originally brought up which are a marginalized community so in a way mutants are like poc, lgbt+, immigrants, etc.
  • the story arc is interesting and keeps you invested
  • there are many characters that are realistic and complex
  • they know the law doesn’t support them (mutants) but they fight on anyway 
  • they try not to harm humans even if they’re garbage
  • magneto was right is the premise for this series lmao
  • speaking of magneto, his daughter is in it and kicks ass

How long you had been going like this was beyond you. Sweat covered your body like the blankets you were on top of. Tears were already streaming down your face, more forming with every movement against your walls.

Jimin had slowed down for now, allowing you a small break but still not completely stopping. The feeling from your legs were gone, the numerous positions you had use them in causing for them to go numb. They had served you well, being there for you when you first started riding him, your limbs pushing you up and down until you fell from your first cliff only to climb up and fall over and over again.

“Hi! Can you write one where you and Jax recently broke up and one day you see Jax taking Ima to his dorm. You go home, try to move on from him, but Jax finds out, gets jealous and tries to win you back? Thank you!”

“This is a bad idea, Chibs.” you warn, pulling at your black lace crop top, a pair of leather shorts showing off your shapely legs. Chibs takes a final drag from his cigarette, dropping it on the floor and putting it out with his boot.

“He misses you, lass, and I can tell you miss him.” You can’t deny his words, these past two weeks being the hardest ones of your life. “You look amazing, sweetheart. If he doesn’t take you home, I sure will.”

Smiling, you gently bump your shoulder with the Scot’s, thanking him silently. “Alright, I’ll take your word for it.”

“Thatta’ girl. Come on, let’s get you a drink.” Chibs throws his arm around your shoulders, leading you up the lot and into the clubhouse, party in full swing. You smile at the croweaters that catch your eye on the way in, them returning the smile and waving kindly at you.

While Chibs gets you and him a drink, you scan the room, not sure how to feel when you don’t spot your ex boyfriend. Tig grins when he sees you, pushing the lady off his lap and walking over to you, throwing his arms around you. “If it isn’t my favourite girl.”

“Hi, Tiggy. Sorry I haven’t been around, everything is a bit of a mess right now.” you explain, his eyes slightly glassy as he watches you, the smell of whisky lingering heavily on him. You’ve always gotten on well with the other MC members, the older ones and younger ones all treating you like family.

“Don’t sweat it, doll, just glad to see you.” He places a sloppy kiss on your cheek, before going back to his woman of the night, sadness covering you as you realise how much you miss this club. The atmosphere, the people, the family. You knew that if you didn’t get this shit sorted with Jax, you’d probably never have it again.

“Here ya are, love. Get that down ya.” You take the beer from Chibs, taking a few swigs, the cold liquid fizzy as it passes down your throat.

You’re listening to Chibs flirt with some croweater when your gaze is pulled to the other side of the room, Jax entering from the apartments. It’s always been the same with him, a magnetic pull that somehow tells you when he’s around. It’s surreal, but he must feel it too, his eyes instantly breathing you in, surprise evident on his face.

You just stare at him, not knowing how he’s going to react. Is he going to be pissed that you’re here? Glad that you’ve come back for him? Upset?

Your questions are quickly answered, Ima surfacing from the same place Jax did, her hands pulling at her shirt, that famous fucking smirk on her face.

Her arms slip around his waist, him being pulled out of his trance. She leans up, whispering into his ear, his eyes remaining on you the whole time. Your heart feels like it’s literally breaking, regret written all over your ex lovers face as you crumble in front of him. He doesn’t correct it though, letting Ima pull his face to hers, her lips claiming his in a messy fashion.

“I think I’m gonna be sick.” you whisper, slamming your half drunken beer on the bar and storming out, leaving a very confused Chibs by himself. He looks across the room as you leave, noticing the very reason for your upset. Shaking his head at his younger brother, he turns his back on him, letting him know just how he feels without even saying a word.

It’s been three months since that dreaded day. The day you lost the last shred of hope you had left for your broken relationship, for the broken man you left behind.

“You ready to go, babe?” Liam calls, his voice travelling up the stairs. You had to move on, you deserve to at least try to be happy, even if deep down you know you’re aiming for a unreachable goal.

“Two minutes!” you respond, throwing your phone and lipstick into your bag. You’d met Liam about two months ago, a sweet boy who asked for your number at your work place. You said yes, met up for lunch one day and hit it off, and you’d been dating ever since. Things were pretty serious between the two of you, but throwing yourself in the deep end seems like the quickest way to get rid of the outlaw biker who refuses leave your mind.

Leaving the bedroom, you jog down the stairs, meeting your boyfriend at the bottom. You were about to go to meet some of Liam’s friends, the four of you going on a double date to the new diner in town. If someone would’ve told you a few months back that you’d be going on double dates and spending time with a completely different set of people, you never would’ve believed it.

“I’m just gonna fill up before we go get Tyler and Abby.” Liam turns into the gas station, pulling up at an available pump and stepping out to fill up the car. “You okay to go pay?”

You nod, grabbing the bills from Liam’s hand and undoing your seat belt, heading inside the store. Once you’ve paid for the fuel, you turn around, slamming straight into a hard chest.

“Sorry, love-” You look up, smiling shyly at the man, shock on his face once he realises who you are. “Jesus, (Y/N). If this isn’t fate, I don’t know what is.”

“It’s nice to see you too, Chibby.” You reply, letting the Scots man wrap you up in his arms, the familiar feeling making your heart clench. You pull back, your common sense kicking in. “Wait, is he with you?”

Before he can reply, the bell above the shop door signaling that someone has just walked in. You hear his voice before you see his face, a thousand and one emotions running through you. “Tig just called, he’s just been to-”

Jax finally reaches the two of you, his voice dying in his throat as he sees who his brother is standing with. His mouth opens and shuts as he stares at you, completely caught off guard.

“Hey, Jax.” you say calmly, hoping that if you act like you’re unaffected, it’ll convince the two men in front of you, even if you can’t convince yourself. “It’s good to see you.”

“Yeah, it’s good to see you too.” He smiles at you, your knees just as weak as they were the day you first caught a glimpse of that smile, the smile that could bring you so much light, even on your darkest of days.

“You alright, (Y/N)?” You scold yourself for forgetting about your company, your boyfriend now making his way over to the three of you in concern. Once he reaches you, he stands by your side, slipping his arm around your waist, claiming his property like some kind of animal.

“Yeah, I’m good.” you respond, part of you wanting to rip Liam’s arm from around you, the expression on Jax’s face one of defeat, heartbreak. The same look you wore just months ago. “Pass my love on to everyone. See you around.”

You leave too quickly to receive a response, your partner trailing behind you, your mental state not feeling up to answering the pile of questions you’re bound to be asked once you get in the car.

You look back at the lost biker in the store, his eyes locked on yours as he watches you walk away from him, again. Only this time, he knows he has to bring you back to him, no matter what it takes.

You sigh in content as you sink into the bubbles, music playing lowly in the background as you take a well earned bath.

Today has been a long day, or at least it feels like it has. After bumping into pieces of your past life, the life you were trying to move on from, you had to deal with a relentless Liam, who wanted to know what your connection was to the murderous bikers in town. This then led to the two of you having a full blown argument. You’d jumped out of the car about thirty minutes out of town and refused to get back in, walking all the way back home.

You massage your temples as you soak, silently begging for your head to stop pounding, the pain making you feel physically sick. All you wanted was five minutes of peace from your overactive brain.

You feel like screaming when you hear the door knock loudly from downstairs, closing your eyes and deciding to ignore whatever company had decided to bother you.

After about fifteen seconds, you hear another series of knocks, more urgent this time. Cursing under your breath, you pull yourself out of the soapy water, quickly wrapping a towel around your body and heading downstairs, ready to release your wrath on whoever was behind the door.

Yanking it open, you see the last person you expect to be at your house. “Jax?”

He moves his sights up and down your body, you wishing you would’ve grabbed your dressing gown rather than a towel that barely reaches midthigh. Once he meets you eyes, you raise your eyebrows in question. “Is everything okay?”

“No, it’s not.” he sighs, running his fingers through his undone locks. “Can I come in? Just give me five minutes. Please.”

Going against your better judgement, you hesitate, pulling the door open widely and letting him step inside. He smiles thankfully at you, a smile that doesn’t quite reach his eyes, before he walks inside.

“What are you doing here, Jackson?” you ask stiffly, wanting the man in front of you to know that you’re not going to take any shit. You’re not the same woman you were three months ago, and he can’t just turn up at your place and expect everything to be okay.

“I miss you, (Y/N).” he confesses, your eyes going as big as saucers as you debate whether you even heard him right. “I made the biggest mistake of my life letting you go, and watching you walk away from me today-”

“Are you serious right now?” You watch as he swallow nervously, enjoying his discomfort. He looks down at the floor, sighing and shrugging his shoulders, like he knew that this was how you’d react.

“You didn’t seem to have a problem with me walking away from you when you told me I wasn’t strong enough for this life.“ you spit, all your pent up anger slowly making its way to the surface. “Didn’t care the second time when you humiliated me in front of the club by fucking that whore!”

“Babe, please just let me-” He knows better than to try and make some bullshit excuse, his sentence stopping once he sees the rage on your face.

“It wasn’t me walking away that got to you yesterday,” you seethe, “it was the fact that I’ve moved on. Found somebody beyond the one and only Jax Teller.”

He stand silent, his eyes heavy with unshed tears as you unload the pain and suffering you’ve had to hold in. You shake your head at him in disbelief, chuckling humourlessly. “You let me go, Jax. You broke my heart, and that’s all on you.”

Silent years slip down your cheeks as you hold your towel close to your chest, the fluffy material moving between your fingers and acting as some sort of security blanket, stopping you from completely falling apart.

“I know I don’t deserve you, (Y/N). I know it, hell, everybody knows it.” he says timidly, breaking the tense silence. He sniffs as you look at the floor, your tears falling as you refuse to meet his gaze. “But you’re the only girl I’ve ever loved, the only girl I will ever love, and I hope that means something to you.”

Your bottom lip quivers as you try to hold in your sobs, the ache in his words chipping at your ice cold exterior, bit by bit. His white trainers step into your view, his figure so close you can smell his intoxicating scent. Just one whiff of him makes you want to forget everything and throw yourself in his arms. But that would be naive.

“I pushed you away, because I don’t want to see you end up like everybody else I love. Broken or dead.” He grabs your face in his large, rough hands, the image of him blurry as you try to blink away your tears, clear your view. “But without you, I see no end to this, (Y/N), no reason to carry on, to fight.”

His thumbs gently caress your skin, your body feeling more alive than it has in months. “I know it’s selfish, I’m a selfish man, but you’re the only thing that I’m certain about in this world.”

You feel like the air has been released back into your lungs when he locks his lips with yours, his hands fiercely cradling your face as you come alive under his touch. You’ve never felt something so passionate, so raw , in your life, his tongue slipping past your lips and exploring the place he hasn’t been allowed to go for months.

You’re both breathless as he pulls away, your heart begging you to join your lips back with his and never break apart. He presses his mouth against your forehead lovingly, one of your favourite things that he does, before he begrudgingly let’s you go, moving towards your front door.

“I’ll always love you, (Y/N). You know where to find me if you feel the same.”

Gemini Compatibility

Note: Please take into account your Moon and Venus signs and remember that any pairing is possible with compromise, please don’t base your relationships completely off of astrology

Most to Least Compatible for Gemini:

Libra

Gemini

Sagittarius

Aquarius

Aries

Leo

Pisces

Taurus

Cancer

Scorpio

Virgo

Capricorn

Gemini and Aries:

Aries is a sign that expects nothing but loyalty in a relationship and sometimes Gemini’s can find this difficult. They go into the relationship with good intentions but as an Air sign, faithfulness isn’t something they’re the best at and this can upset Aries and set off their fiery temper which can in turn scare Gemini away and make them distant, confusing and angering Aries even more! This relationship can be like a dog chasing its tail and then squealing in pain when they bite it. Gemini’s require intellectual stimulus to keep them interested and Aries’ need a spark. Gemini’s aren’t the best listeners in the Zodiac and won’t pay much attention to emotional angst and everyday issues which can end up wounding Aries’ ego and annoying them. Aries’ passion and intensity could possibly frighten Gemini and scare them away.

Despite all this, Aries and Gemini have the potential for a very fun and loving relationship. Gemini’s tendency to debate about things can get Aries’ all fired up if it’s not about something serious, thus satisfying Gemini’s need for an intellectual debate and Aries’ need to be passionate and argue about something. Gemini’s and Aries’ both despise boredom with promises a very exciting and exhilarating relationship. Gemini’s are always evolving and changing which is good news to Aries’ who finds it hard to settle. This is a relationship that both sides can learn from. Gemini can show Aries’ the beauty of the mind and communication and Aries’ can show Gemini how passion can say things that words can’t. Neither are very fond of sharing emotions so there will be mutual empathy and understanding there when both are opening up. As problematic as this pairing is, it is capable of reaching a comfortable state of excitement and common ground, a lot of work is needed though.

Gemini and Taurus:

Taurus and Gemini are generally not a very compatible pairing, mainly because Earth and Air signs don’t mix very well, but there are also characteristics exclusive to these signs as to why they’re not compatible. Taurus is quite a jealous lover, preferring to have their partner to themselves and getting quite upset if they feel their partner is straying whereas Gemini hates to be tied down by someone, they’re known as the sign who have trouble with staying faithful and this is a huge no-no for Taurus. Taurus’ safe and secure nature isn’t exciting or challenging enough for Gemini who is always full of new ideas and goals. Gemini always needs new things to keep them busy and Taurus might not be able to keep up, preferring the comfort of home and security. Gemini, being an impulsive liar can end up hurting and manipulating Taurus without noticing it, causing Taurus to build their wall and dig up their hatchet.

However, like with every pairing, this one has a lot of potential. Taurus has a love of the arts which can spark a real intellectual stimulation in Gemini which is what they really need, it might even bring out their creative side and encourage them to produce new ideas. You need quite a lot of patience to be able to put up with a Gemini, not particularly in a bad way, it’s just they’re constantly jumping from one thing to another. Luckily, Taurus has more than enough patience to tolerate this as long as Gemini is willing to meet some of their needs too. Both signs are insensitive to an extent so there’s mutual understanding when it comes to comforting and emotions etc. which can benefit especially Gemini. Taurus’ seem to lack imagination and creativity but when in partnership with Gemini, Taurus can be exposed to new ideas and may find interests they never knew they had. Both signs are quite humorous so a good friendship can make a good foundation. If Gemini can be careful with Taurus’ emotions and if Taurus allows Gemini to have their space, this pairing can work.

Gemini and Gemini:

Same sign pairings have incredibly good fortune in terms with compatibility but sometimes things can get a little stuffy when a sign as well expressed as Gemini is duplicated. For example, Gemini like to feel free in any relationship they have. Depending on their Moon or Venus signs, in this relationship, one partner will be more likely to stray than the other. This isn’t an intentional thing but can be very upsetting. Gemini’s like to argue, whether it’s friendly debate or a serious conflict, this can lead to things getting pretty heated. Gemini’s like to talk but sometimes tend to zone out when it comes to listening, this can be problematic and hurtful to both partners as no matter how much we cover up our emotions, at the end of the day we all need someone to listen. Not to mention that Gemini is the jester, the trickster of the zodiac and can successfully trick and manipulate others. If this gets out of hand, serious damage could be done.

However like all same sign couples, Gemini’s make for a very understanding and zesty relationship. Gemini’s crave intellect and friendly debate, of which there is an infinite abundance in this relationship. These two will never run out of things to talk or debate about, they will open doors in each other’s mind that they never knew were even there. Witty and intelligent humour will bond these two together and give them reasons to laugh even in their darkest times. Despite their argumentative nature, this couple will be very good at communicating their problems to each other which is a big factor seeing as this is where most couples meet their downfall. Wrong words, miscommunications – these are not things that Geminis are prone to and this can help the relationship grow amazingly. If these two show each other how much they care and show as much loyalty as they can without compromising their own values and morals, this couple have a strong foundation to build their ideas on.

Gemini and Cancer:

Air and Water are tricky mixtures when it comes to relationship pairings. Air can stir water and water can make air heavy and damp. Gemini is very much a carefree, come and go partner whereas Cancer is a very home oriented, committed lover. Cancer needs to feel secure and safe at all times and depending on how dedicated Gemini is, this could be a problem. Gemini’s are the tricksters of the zodiac, they’re like a breeze, you feel their presence but you can’t catch them in your hand. Gemini’s love freedom and will be repelled if they feel in anyway obligated to be 110% dedicated to a person. This isn’t to say that every Gemini is disloyal, it just means that they need their space and if Cancer doesn’t understand this they can get hurt. Cancers like to address their emotions and if Gemini doesn’t accommodate this, it could be incredibly destructive to Cancer’s wellbeing. Both signs are quite manipulative, Cancer with their emotions and Gemini with their words so in this relationship, both partners will have to be able to recognise when they’re not being fair and be able to stop.

However, like all pairings, this relationship can work if both partners are willing to realise their differences and use them to learn from each other. For example, this relationship covers a lot of bases! Cancer is the mother of the zodiac and can provide understanding and emotional intelligence to Gemini who can sometimes neglect their emotional needs by talking them out of existence. Cancer will sense when Gemini is sad or hurting and can show them that it’s ok to feel things and can show them how to heal. Gemini is the communicator of the zodiac and can show Cancer how to communicate their emotions clearly so that it’s less of a puzzle to find out what they want. They can provide Cancer with different perspectives and thought patterns to help them out. Gemini is very artistic and Cancer is very intuitive, together they can produce artworks of all kinds. These two can make for a very character building pair and can last very long with the right amount of work and effort.

Gemini and Leo:

Air and Fire pairings always work well to a certain extent. They make for a very passionate and innovative couple but as with any other pairing, they are not without their faults. Romance and sexuality is very important to Leos, they feel it is the essence of relationships however Geminis, being air signs, rely on an intellectual connection to keep their spark alight. If Gemini can’t find intellectual stimulation in a relationship, they may look for it elsewhere which could make Leo jealous and spark an argument. Leo is “the royal” sign of the Zodiac and may be inclined to sit back in the relationship and let Gemini do most of the work – which Gemini will not be happy about. Both incredibly flirtatious signs however Leo is more inclined to be jealous than Gemini. Elementally speaking, Fire needs Air to exist, but Air does not need Fire. Leo may be the one that falls deeper than Gemini.

However when Air and Fire signs work well together, they work REALLY well! Think of this romance as one between a Monarch (Leo) and their Jester (Gemini). Gemini is blessed with a golden tongue and can flatter and entertain Leo as much as their heart desires, Leo’s amusement and attention is in itself a reward for Gemini. This pairing is likely to become a socialite type of romance, the type that would host dinner parties, or parties in general together. Gemini challenges Leo on an intellectual level and Leo always rises to the challenge. Leo likes to admire thing, and luckily Gemini has an abundance of qualities for Leo to enjoy. Geminis are exceptionally creative, especially in their words. Leos are natural born performers as well as creative in their actions which can appeal to Geminis as it can complement their own talents perfectly. If the two partners in this pairing can learn to put equal effort and respect their differences and their boundaries, this relationship can be one neither will forget.

Gemini and Virgo:

Sadly, this couple is definitely not one of the most compatible, it’s on the other end of the scale I’m afraid. For Virgo, stability, routine and organisation are key in relationships, that’s just about everything that Gemini may find restricting and heavy. Gemini needs freedom to explore what the world has to offer, regardless of how spontaneous or unplanned these things may be and that can really scare Virgo. Archetypically speaking, Virgo is much like the parent, and Gemini is much like the child of the Zodiac. Mature, practical Virgo may feel responsible for childlike, unpredictable Gemini which after a while, may strain Virgo. A lot of the time it will be Virgo who is looking after and maintaining the wellbeing of the relationship, even though it may come to them like second nature, it is not very healthy. Virgo’s detailed oriented nature may make Gemini feel scrutinised and generally, they haven’t got much in common, nor have they got enough differences to make it interesting.

However no pairing is ever impossible and with work this relationship can definitely last. Geminis are very creative and can communicate their ideas well, their Virgo partner can provide a solid foundation for them to build their ideas upon and can provide them with depth and practicality. Virgos have an awful habit of biting off more than they can chew and they end up becoming swamped in one situation or another. With Gemini as their partner they can learn that it’s ok to take time out to relax and heal themselves which is very important for their wellbeing. Intellect will most likely be the focal point in this relationship as both partners crave it. They tend to have the same type witty, sarcastic of humour also, meaning that conversation rarely runs dry. Fights can be handled very maturely and efficiently seeing as both signs are ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication. If Virgo loosens the reins and Gemini steps up to their responsibilities in the relationship they can most definitely be good for each other.

Gemini and Libra:

Air signs tend to amazingly together, as most same element signs do. Personally I believe that Gemini and Libra are near perfect for each other. They do of course, have their downfall. In most relationships, there’s always one person who tends to fall deeper than the other and in this case, that person is mostly likely the Libra. Librans love to love. They require a bit more emotion than Gemini in order to feel satisfied in the relationship and this can sometimes make Gemini feel uncomfortable. Gemini’s detached attitude may come across as untrustworthy to Libra and could hurt them. Although air signs like a friendly debate, Gemini sometimes tends to take it too far and it turns into an argument, this can upset Libra and make them compromise themselves to restore harmony. They’d both rather brush their problems under the carpet than to solve them and this can build up into one big problem. Deep relationships between these two can be hard to come by.

However these two are incredibly compatible, a meeting of the minds comes with this pairing and they both value that greatly. Both signs are very intellectual meaning they can really sit down and have a conversation. Gemini can really appreciate and admire Libra for their fairness and good judgement and Libra can fall in love with the witty humour that Gemini provides. Whimsy and optimism are the theme of this relationship, it simply never grows stagnant. This element of continual change and growth makes long term relationships less daunting for them (mostly Gemini). When in an argument Geminis communication skills and Libras compelling sense of justice and fairness guarantee that whatever the outcome of the fight is, it was for the best and was mutually agreed on. With compromise on both parts, this couple provide for each other a safe haven of creativity and light heartedness.

Gemini and Scorpio:

Air and Water signs can go very well together because they encourage the relationship to make its decision using both head and heart. However in this pairing, it’s getting Gemini and Scorpio to work together in harmony that’s the trick. Scorpio’s dark and deep essence may make Gemini feel dragged down, causing them to become more aloof in the relationship. Having a Gemini in your life is like a whirlwind, constantly jumping from one thing to the next, this can be quite disruptive and alarming to Scorpio who is very strategic and whose emotions are rightly compared to still, deep waters. Scorpios are quite possessive in their relationships which can repel Gemini. Geminis are naturally flirtatious which could anger Scorpio if it’s not directed at them. Geminis whimsy nature conflicts greatly with Scorpios strategic one. Gemini may not have to emotional capacity to handle Scorpios strong feelings.

However if these two work through their differences, the relationship is definitely achievable and maintainable! Scorpio’s dark passion can both intrigue and frighten Gemini which leads to a lot of exploration on their part. What you see is not what you get with a Scorpio and Gemini will enjoy putting the puzzle together. Scorpio rarely divulges their emotions to others but if they decide to, Gemini will have all the right resources to help Scorpio get their feelings across as accurately as they can. Geminis don’t see much point in holding grudges and if they use their golden communication skills, they can eventually convince unmovable Scorpio to let go of past hurts. While Geminis like to try their hand at everything, Scorpio can help them find their strengths and channel their focus for a smarter move. If they realise their differences and instead of ignoring them, use them for growth, these two are unstoppable.

Gemini and Sagittarius:

These two signs are opposites and like with any opposite signs, it can either go amazingly well or horrifically wrong. Like I’ve said before, Fire and Air go quite well together in terms of passion and friendship. However they can run into as much trouble as any other pairing in the Zodiac. Both signs tend to get carried away with themselves and will need to establish a good foundation if they want a good long term relationship. Whereas Gemini is quite good with words and chooses them wisely, Sagittarius sometimes comes across quite blunt and a poor choice of words could upset Gemini. Sagittarians can be quite opinionated and are stubborn when people question that, but that’s what Gemini does in order to get a view of multiple perspectives. Both signs are quite competitive in arguments and this can lead to it getting serious. Unless Gemini and Sagittarius have a strong common interest, this relationship can lose its spark and die out relatively quickly.

Should this relationship go well however, it’ll be quite rewarding. Both of these signs love to experience and learn new things and are constantly on a quest for new things to do. Since this is so important to both of them it creates a bond between the two when in a relationship. This is the relationship that will never grow old since they are constantly trying new things and finding out more about each other in the process. This make a long term commitment a lot less daunting for the both of them. Sagittarians need freedom, physically speaking whereas Gemini need that freedom in an intellectual form. Both partners let each other have the freedom they need as they know how important it is. Gemini is the thinker of the couple, who comes up with ideas while Sagittarius is the philosopher, who expands on those ideas. If they can combat their differences and use them beneficially, Sagittarius and Gemini can be life-long partners.

Gemini and Capricorn:

Air and Earth signs are incredibly tricky to get right and require an awful lot of work. Air dries Earth out and leaves it unfertile. Earth makes the Air heavy. For this pairing to work at all, it requires a very strong connection to build upon. Both partners must be determined to make it work or it could fall apart. Much like Virgo, Capricorn is very practical and realistic which Gemini can feel dragged down by. These two signs have very different way of doing things. Gemini likes to take short cuts and easy options as long as they get them to where they want to be. Capricorn on the other hand likes to be thorough and make sure that everything is done properly so they can say they’ve achieved their goal wholeheartedly. Geminis impulsiveness can scare Capricorn and make them build walls, walls that Gemini might not be bothered to break depending on how involved in the relationship they are. Emotions will also be quite tricky to master as Geminis never dwell on them and Capricorns internalize them.

However if these two are completely in love and will do what it takes to make it work, this relationship can be achieved and with the joint ambition of these two signs, it’s definitely doable. Capricorn likes to have control in order to get things done right but they also give Gemini enough space to do them, so Gemini has no problem letting Capricorn take the lead. Since these two are so unlike each other their own qualities seem amplified which makes it easier to understand each other’s needs. Although Capricorns silently deal with their own problems, they’re not the best at communicating them to others which may lead to a row if there is any miscommunication. Gemini can help Capricorn say what they feel. Gemini whizzes through life, not taking times to really appreciate things, Capricorn can help teach Gemini to slow down and smell the roses. If they really try with each other and do their best not to give up, these two can be very successful together in life in general.

Gemini and Aquarius:

Same element signs as I’ve said before are almost always the most compatible for each other as they share many qualities, however sometimes the differences between them can be quite problematic. Aquarius is a fixed sign and so can get stubborn when others are not cooperating for them. Gemini doesn’t like this very much as they’re mutable and they drift and flow rather than getting caught up on one thing. Aquarius may not give Gemini enough room to breathe if they get caught up in the relationship rather than just going with it. Aquarius likes to be in charge and if they don’t allow Gemini any space or freedom this could push them away big time. Neither of these signs pay much attention to their emotions and this can end up being a problem if they go too long without voicing their feelings. Although they have a lot of intellectual stimulation from each other, real passion is quite hard to come by as this pairing is more of a meeting of the minds. However even though there might not be much passion, how much this affects the relationship really depends on the partners.

This pairing is generally a very compatible one as both signs here crave and provide intellectual stimulation. Aquarius’ rebellious streak inspires and excites Gemini and their ideas. Aquarius’ need to be different, and they need that difference to be noticed. Gemini admires Aquarius’ individuality and provides the attention that Aquarius seeks. Both signs are very good at communicating to each other so fights rarely occur. These two like to spend time talking and debating, expanding and building on each other’s ideas and theories. If they have the right mind set these two can be very productive in terms of making these ideas more than ideas. Where Aquarius inspires Gemini, Gemini amuses Aquarius with their witty, intelligent sense of humour. When these partners practice equality and free will in their relationship, it’s an incredibly mindful one.

Gemini and Pisces:

Probably the most compatible Air and Water pairings, these two share a lot of qualities for signs that aren’t of the same element, and although Water supposedly dampens Air, and Air stirs Water, some believe that in this match, it’s beneficial. However communication sometimes gets messy here despite Gemini’s talent. Pisces’ are known as the martyr of the Zodiac and will suffer in silence unless someone asks them what’s wrong. Gemini might not notice anything wrong as Pisces’ are also quite good at making it seem like nothing’s wrong, much like Scorpio, their emotions run deep. The more comfortable they get with each other, the more likely Gemini is to notice that Pisces sometimes like to wallow in negativity, not all the time, but sometimes it’s necessary for regeneration. Gemini may feel awkward with this seeing as they themselves aren’t in touch with their emotions. On top of this both signs tend to be quite drifty, and as loyal as Pisces is, they always like to flirt with different possibilities, if there’s no strong attraction these two could float apart easily.

However this pairing as I said is highly compatible and can bring abundance to both partners’ lives. Both Pisces and Gemini have seemingly endless creativity that comes from different places. Pisces’ creativity comes mostly from their intuition, a lot of their emotions inspire the things they do whereas Gemini’s creativity comes from thought, they can take something mundane, think about it for a while and bring out the beauty and wonder from it. Gemini’s communication skills do not go to waste in this relationship either. As emotionally intelligent as Pisces are, they sometimes have trouble getting the right words out to describe how they’re feeling, Gemini can help Pisces with this. Gemini’s ideas can sometimes get too big for some people to handle but Pisces, who can understand these ideas on a deeper level encourages Gemini to think as big as they can. Despite Gemini not really expressing their emotions, Pisces knows when there’s something wrong and somehow knows how to heal Gemini without them even noticing. With the right amount of compassion and attraction, these two are a very compatible couple.

ILVERMORNY HEADCANON [House Common Rooms]

WAMPUS

The House of Wampus is located directly in plain sight; the very front entrance of Ilvermony. 

On either side of the very front entrance of the school, there are two sets of suits of armor positioned on either side. These enchanted armors are typically used to guide First Year around the mind-boggling castle. However, if one were to go to set on the left hand side of the door, the armors that constantly bicker night and day, and be a Wampus student, the suits will drag their longswords and cut along the castle’s outer wall (to the utter infuriation of the professors, who’d reminded the suits time and time against that they need only to trace the wall to get the door open) to open the Wampus Common Room entrance. At one time, there use to be a silly password or ID to get into the room, however, that had long since been forgotten as only Wampus students have been found to out-yell the enchanted suits.

The common room, itself, is something very reflective of the actual wampus house; it’s warm and cozy, with plush furniture and wooden walls and frames like a hunting lodge. There are magical weapons decorated along the walls, along with various trinkets that students had nicked from the confiscated drawers of the teachers. Books and notes on hexes and Dark Magic are scattered about for students to learn from.

Four large corridors are located on each face of the common room. Two are for the boy and girls’ bedrooms (which are notoriously messy to the point of humor) whilst the other two lead to a large set of catacombs that lead to multiple spots hidden around the grounds. Upperclassmen Wampuses are responsible for nightly patrols to make sure that students and/or intruders are wandering about.

THUNDERBIRD

Sitting high above the hills of Mount Greylock sits the nets of the Thunderbirds.

To actual reach the impossibly high treehouses, Thunderbird students must venture to an enchanted tapestry on the highest floor of the castle. Hanging on one of the walls is a rather large tapestry that, daily, will change its overall design to reflect a different area of the world. Students must correctly name the location in order to have the tapestry scoop them up, and fling them up from the castle to a landing station connected to the treehouses,.

The treehouses, themselves, hang on the innermost trees of Ilvermorny’s forest. A series of rope bridge and magical trees which move their branches for platforms are the modes of movement between the houses and the common room, which is located right beside the landing station for the house, underneath a small gazebo-type roofing. 

Not many pieces of furniture are located in the common room; only a small set of chairs and a large cabinet piece filled with items and supplies for every good Thunderbird’s newest exploration. It it restocked every morning by the school’s helpers, so there will never be a day where one goes without a compass or a set of rations. A helpful thing when it comes for upperclassmen when it comes to their school duties.

PUKWUDGIE

It’s a common joke at Ilvermorny that Pukwudgie students live in the school’s vibrant greenhouse. 

And, really, it isn’t far at all from the truth.

There are countless pieces of plant life in the glassy classroom, but behind one, a large shrub tucked between two more interesting herb trees, lays the Pukwudgie common room. Getting in changes by the daily, just as the Thunderbird’s common room. Pukwudgie students are given the task of identifying a new herb or flower that grows on their shrub. Naming it will make the shrub part to allow access into the room. However, if one were to attempt to cheat and tell their fellow classmates what is blooming that day, they will be blasted by a rotten stench by the shrub before being let in.

Inside the common room, there is a small, yet lush relaxation/break room for Pukwudgies to unwind after stressful classes. A large hearth and velvety armchairs are there for every students’ disposal, as well as a vast collection of textbooks and drinks that are constantly being restocked. Students tend to love to curl up with one of each beside the towering windows during the evenings.

There are two non-dormitory doors are located in the common room. The first being a door leading to a staircase that is connected to the Nurse’s Office. The second is a small, fully-stocked, private workroom that students had use for personal research. Great discoveries have been made there, and they are continued to be made there every year.

HORNED SERPENT

There is only one appropriate location for the house of the mind; the library.

Entrance is located on the top story of the library. Behind a small maze of bookshelves, there is a portrait, hanging within a golden frame, that has a different scholar within it every week. This scholar can range from the minds of Merlin to Harry Houdini, to whomever has a mind special enough to guard the Horned Serpent common room. 

To gain entrance, each student must engage in a light debate with that of the scholar. The topic is random, mostly based on whatever that scholar is pondering in that moment, and ranges far. Some debates can only take a few moments whilst others have ended in students falling asleep from exhaustion outside the door. It all depends on the mind, really.

The Horned Serpent’s common room is very similar in the aspect of the Pukwudgie common room; very lush and soft, and perfect for late night studying. A monstrous bookcase is located on the side of the common room, filled to the brim with books of every sort. It’s a tradition for graduating Horned Serpents to leave their favorite book on the shelf for the younger students. It’s in order to have students vary their minds and discover things in a collection that one couldn’t always find in the library.

Pairing: Jughead x Reader

Description: (Y/N) drags Jughead along to the “club with shitty security.”

Warnings: underage drinking

Word count: 2,176

A/N: here is the first “drabble” for this series, which will eventually all build up to a dramatic part 2!! Hope you enjoy, I had so much fun writing this one!


She worked her way through a cheap pack of cigarettes
Hard liquor mixed with a bit of intellect
And all the boys, they were saying they were into it
Such a pretty face, on a pretty neck

“Jesus,” (Y/N) moaned as she flopped onto Jughead’s bed.  “That was a fucking long week.”

“Who knew a writing internship could be this physically exhausting?” Jughead agreed, sitting next to her.  “At least we have the weekend to relax.”

“Yeah,” she nodded, rubbing the white hotel sheets between her fingers.  “How would you like to unwind this weekend, Mr. Jones?”

“Well, Ms. (Y/L/N),” Jughead smiles coyly, “last week I got to choose, and we ended up at Central Park. I believe it’s your turn to choose.”

“Okay,” (Y/N) responded, then fell into silence as she debated what to do.  Jughead watched her with a smile as she bit her lip, eyes furrowed in concentration.

“You’re taking this very seriously,” he noted, laughing at her intense facial expression.  

Her face loosened from its focused state.  “This is serious business, Jug,” she stated as seriously as she could.  “If this ends up being not being relaxing enough, we’ll go back on Monday feeling like absolute shit.  And then it’ll make next week even longer and more exhausting.”

“Okay, okay, I get it,” Jughead raised his hands in mock surrender.  “This is a matter of life and death.”

“Exactly,” (Y/N) said. She retreated back into silence as she contemplated how they would spend their weekend.  “I got it!” she exclaimed after a few minutes of thought.  

Jughead raised an eyebrow. “What are we gonna do?” he asked, a small smirk forming on his face.

(Y/N)’s face exploded into a giant grin.  “We’re gonna go clubbing.”

She’s driving me crazy, but I’m into it, but I’m into it
I’m kind of into it

“Are you serious?” Jughead demanded, eyes widening.  

(Y/N) nodded, not showing any signs of joking around.  “Of course I’m serious.  What better way to unwind than to get some alcohol in your system?”

“What if we get caught?” he questioned.  “(Y/N), this could fuck up our internship.”

If we get caught,” she winked.  “Jug, it’ll be fine.  I went there once before you arrived here.  It’s really not too bad, and there’s no way that anyone will find out.”

“How do you know that?” Jughead pressed.  “How do you know someone from the building won’t be there and see us?  Or maybe a bar fight will break out and the cops will show up, and they’ll notice we’re there.  How do you know it’ll be okay?”

“Jughead Jones,” (Y/N) placed a comforting hand on his shoulder, ending his tangent, “it will be okay. Listen, if you don’t wanna go, that’s fine.  I can go on my own.”  She stood up from the bed and grabbed her phone.  “I’m gonna go get ready.  Just text me if you change your mind.”  She exited his hotel room, leaving Jughead alone with his doubts.

Of course he didn’t want to go clubbing.  He was, after all, an antisocial weirdo who didn’t even like going to clubs.  Putting his internship as risk was just the cherry on top.  But then he started thinking about (Y/N) on her own, and he grew worried about the kind of people who lurk out in the New York streets on Friday nights.  If he wasn’t with her, who knew what could happen.

That, Jughead decided, was worth risking his internship for.  He quickly picked up his phone, and his thumbs tapped out a text.  He read it aloud right before he hit send: “Fuck it, let’s go clubbing.”

It’s getting crazy, I think I’m losing it, I think I’m losing it
Oh, I think she said, “I’m having your baby, it’s none of your business.
I’m having your baby, it’s none of your business (it’s none of your, it’s none of your).
I’m having your baby (hey), it’s none of your business.
I’m having your baby (hey), it’s none of your, it’s none of your.”

“I’m glad you changed your mind.”  (Y/N) stood at his door an hour later, sporting a little black dress.  She looked him up and down, evaluating the clothes he changed into.  “Nice outfit.”

“You as well,” Jughead returned the compliment, slowly closing the door behind him.  “Shall we go?”  He offered his arm to her, which she gladly accepted.  

The New York streets were equally, if not more, busy during the nighttime.  There were crowds of people maneuvering past each other on the sidewalks, some of the tipsier people practically dancing to the song of blaring car horns.  (Y/N)’s steps grew bouncier as they neared the club.

“I know this isn’t your scene,” she whispered to Jughead, “so thank you for coming.”  

Jughead looked down at her, shocked.  “How do you know it’s not my scene?” he asked indignantly.  “Maybe I actually love clubbing.”

(Y/N) burst out into laughter.  “Yeah sure, and maybe I actually love running marathons,” she sarcastically retorted. Then she became serious.  “Listen, Jug, I know you.  You’re my friend.  I figured that it wasn’t just the risk underage drinking imposes on our internship that turned you off from clubbing.  So thank you for coming with me.”

“In my defense,” Jughead stated, “the only reason I came is so that you won’t get mugged.”

“Well thanks for that,” (Y/N) bent her head back with laughter, “but I could totally handle myself.”

“You could not!”

“Yeah I could!” she defended herself.  “I could totally beat up someone.”

“No you wouldn’t,” he scoffed.  “You’re way too weak.  You get tired at a writing internship.”

“Touché.”

It’s New York, baby, always jacked up
Holland Tunnel for a nose, it’s always backed up
When she’s alone, she goes home to a cactus
In a black dress, she’s such an actress

(Y/N) batted her eyelashes at the doubtful bouncer.  

“You two don’t look twenty-one,” he stated, his voice low and gruff.  

“And you don’t look a day over thirty,” she winked at the obviously in-his-forties man.  

He only rolled his eyes. “Look, miss, I don’t know if you’re aware of this, but drinking under the age of twenty-one is illegal,” he sarcastically explained.

“I’m not a ditz,” she snapped.  “Besides, we’re not here to drink, we’re here to dance.”  She glanced over at Jughead and nudged him in the side.  “Right, Jug?”

“Right,” he immediately replied.  Satisfied, (Y/N) put her hands on her hips as she turned to face the bouncer.

“See?” she said. “Just here to dance.”

“Fine,” the bouncer huffed. “But only for this one time. You’re not getting in here again until you both turn twenty-one.”

“Thank you, sir,” (Y/N) cooed, sending him a smile.  She grabbed Jughead’s hand as she led him inside, the music growing louder.  “I told you it’d be fine,” she yelled over the music.

Jughead shook his head. “We almost got caught,” he yelled back.

“But we didn’t!” she reminded him.

“I’m starting to second guess this decision,” he groaned, but still allowed (Y/N) to yank him over to the bar.  “I thought we weren’t getting any alcohol.”

“Oh, sweetie, you believed me?” (Y/N) giggled.  “I came here to get tipsy, Jug.  I’m not stupid, so I’m obviously not gonna order my drinks here at the bar.  Wait for them to start sending waitresses out onto the dance floor.  You just drop some cash on their tray and take a drink.  It’s simple.”

“This is insane!”

(Y/N) laughed loudly and winked.  “But don’t lie, you like it!”

Driving me crazy, but I’m into it, but I’m into it
I’m kind of into it
It’s getting crazy, I think I’m losing it, I think I’m losing it
Oh, I think she said, “I’m having your baby (hey), it’s none of your business.
I’m having your baby (hey), it’s none of your business (it’s none of your, it’s none of your).
I’m having your baby (hey), it’s none of your business.
I’m having your baby (hey), it’s none of your, it’s none of your.”

“Take a shot,” (Y/N) commanded, holding up two shot glasses, one further towards Jughead.  

He furiously shook his head. “No way,” he replied, swatting it away. “It’s bad enough you dragged me here. You’re not getting me drunk.”

“First of all, Jug, you dragged yourself here,” (Y/N) reminded him.  She quickly took her shot.  “And second, lighten up.  If you’re having such a bad time here, then you can either leave, or,” she inched the second shot glass a little closer to him, “you can get tipsy and actually have a good time.”

Jughead rolled his eyes and shook his head again.  “No,” he refused.  “No way.”

“Aw come on, Jug,” she whined, sticking out her lower lip.  “Just one shot?”

Jughead hesitated for a moment, eyeing the shot glass.  “No.”

“You hesitated,” (Y/N) pointed out.

“No I didn’t,” he argued. “I’m not drinking anything except soda and water here, (Y/N).  Think of me as your designated driver.”

“Jughead, we walked here.”

“Then I’m your designated walker,” he shrugged.  “You and I both know you’ll be too drunk to walk properly.”

“One shot is barely gonna get you tipsy,” she countered, still holding the glass out towards him. “Come on, Jug, let loose.  Have a bit of fun.”

“I am plenty fun when I’m sober,” he defended himself.  

(Y/N) rolled her eyes. “Sure you are.”

“You know what? Fine.”  Jughead snatched the shot glass out of (Y/N)’s hand, ignoring the growing smirk on her face.  “Just one shot, though.”  He quickly took the shot and handed the empty glass back to (Y/N).  “Happy?”

(Y/N) laughed as she walked towards the dance floor, “Very!”

She sits beside me like a silhouette
Hard candy dripping on me ‘til my feet are wet
And now she’s all over me, it’s like I paid for it
It’s like I paid for it, I’m gonna pay for this

Two hours into the night, (Y/N) was drunkenly dancing with strangers.  She, with her magical powers of persuasion, managed to convince Jughead to have a few drinks.  He wasn’t nearly as drunk as (Y/N) was, but he was definitely tipsier than he expected. However tipsy he was, though, there was no way (Y/N) would be able to drag Jughead onto the dance floor.

He watched from the sidelines as she danced with some guy who was definitely older than her.  She, in her joyously drunken state, didn’t seem to mind.  His hands were on her waist, and Jughead watched as they slowly inched down towards her ass.

“Hey!” he yelled, storming onto the dance floor.  (Y/N) and the man’s heads snapped to look at him.  “Hands off of her, buddy.”  The guy rolled his eyes as he held up his hands in mock-surrender.

“Whatever, dude,” he scoffed as he walked off.  

(Y/N) grinned at Jughead, causing him to send her a confused glance.  “You’re on the dancefloor,” she noted.

Jughead rolled his eyes. “Only to protect you.”

“How sweet,” she cooed, grabbing his hand.  “Since you’re here, let’s dance.”  

Jughead tried to pull her in the opposite direction.  “Let’s not.”

“Aw come on, Jug,” she pouted, too drunk to resist his tugs.  “You haven’t danced with me all night.”

Jughead glanced at the exit, and then he turned to face a moping (Y/N).  He rolled his eyes as he sighed, “Fine, but only one song and then we’re leaving.”

(Y/N)’s grin returned as she led him to the dance floor.  “It’s a deal.”

It’s none of your, it’s none of your
“I’m having your baby (hey), it’s none of your business.”
“I’m having your baby (hey), it’s none of your business” (it’s none of your, it’s none of your)
“I’m having your baby (hey), it’s none of your business”
“I’m having your baby, it’s none of your business” (it’s none of your, it’s none of your)

“Come on, (Y/N), we’re almost there,” Jughead had his arm wrapped around her waist, her arm slung around his shoulders.  “I thought you’d be able to hold your alcohol better than that.”

“Maybe I just like it when you hold me like this,” (Y/N) flirtatiously whispered with a smirk.  Jughead ignored the butterflies in his stomach as he continued to trudge towards the hotel.

“Just a little bit further,” he muttered, practically dragging (Y/N) along next to him.  When they reached the hotel, they both stumbled into the elevator.  Jughead kept his arm firmly wrapped around her waist until they stood in front of her door.  “Can you make it into your room alright?” Jughead jokingly asked, but there was a bit of concern behind it.

“I’ll be fine, thank you, Jug,” (Y/N) laughed as she unwrapped her arm from around his shoulders. She walked into her room in a perfectly sober manner, causing Jughead to question if she really meant it when she said she liked it when he wrapped his arm around her waist.  Right before she shut her door, she winked at him, leaving a flabbergasted Jughead standing alone in the hotel hallway.

Aries and Aries:

Normally signs of the same element go together very well and even though this does apply to fire signs, they’re probably one of the most dangerous elements to put together. Fire and fire in general creates a lot of heat and passion without even having to think of the specific signs. This can be a good thing as long as they stay in control of it. Without control, this relationship could unintentionally hurt both involved, and even further, those around them. Aries, as the first sign of the zodiac likes to be dominant and this can spark rivalry in some aspect of the relationship and one or both of them could get burned. Since both of the partners are quick to anger (and even quicker to calm down) this could potentially be an on-off relationship. It’s not unheard of for this pairing to have a once of fling so they’ll need to make sure the flame doesn’t burn too bright and is then gone as quick as it came, they need to pace themselves.

On the plus side Aries and Aries relationships can be incredibly passionate and steamy. Feelings for each other will be fiery and irresistible. They match each other’s fire which will keep each other in their place, and are great at motivating each other to do well in things. The love between these two will be feverish and exhilarating and there’ll never be a dull moment. Much to both of their comfort, things will be straightforward and dealt with head on in this relationship, neither can stand mind games and “elephant in the room” situations so when problems arise, these two will be quick to find a solution. Both signs love a challenge just as much as they love to challenge each other, this can be a very positive aspect because it can prevent them from getting stuck in a rut. With the right amount of control and steady pacing in this relationship, Aries and Aries can have a fun and exhilarating experience but must try not to burn each other out.

Aries and Taurus:

Probably one of the most problematic pairings in the Zodiac, Aries and Taurus don’t have many differences but the ones they do have can be quite vital in the relationship. Aries in an incredibly independent sign, and likes to enjoy fun, light hearted relationships with the person they love whereas Taurus has a tendency to emotionally invest in a relationship with someone they really love.  Aries being a fiery, passionate sign can be very carefree with their relationships, often doing before thinking and this can really upset Taurus who tends to get quite jealous or possessive when they feel their relationship is threatened but this is only because they put so much thought and care into the relationship and they’ll be damned if something is going to mess it up. Taurus’ temper can match that of an Aries, sometimes even outdo it but as Aries’ let go of arguments as quickly as they arise, Taurus is one to hold onto that for a long time and can withdraw from their partner if trust and stability is broken. Aries love to win, and when they do they tend to rub their partners nose in it but when they lose, they pretend it never happened, this can anger Taurus since it’s not fair to them.

However with the right level of understanding, this pairing can create a comfortable yet exciting atmosphere. Taurus is the most passionate of the earth signs which appeals to Aries nature. Taurus is a very sensual sign, appreciating things like good food and massages regardless of how simple or it might be. They know just how to pamper Aries, which they enjoy as much an Aries does. They’re very good at handling Aries’ temper since they’re much slower to anger, it builds up over time, which is good for Aries because it means someone is keeping a firm grip and isn’t going to blow up back in their face right away. Aries can bring Taurus out of their comfort zone – for better or for worse- and should pay attention to Taurus’ limits if they want to avoid upsetting their partner greatly – Taurus’ need stability and nothing would break their heart more than their own partner to break it for them. This pairing needs a lot of work and a lot of communication, they need to learn to stay calm and patient but potentially this pairing could be very rewarding.

Aries and Gemini:

Aries is a sign that expects nothing but loyalty in a relationship and sometimes Gemini’s can find this difficult. They go into the relationship with good intentions but as an Air sign, faithfulness isn’t something they’re the best at and this can upset Aries and set off their fiery temper which can in turn scare Gemini away and make them distant, confusing and angering Aries even more! This relationship can be like a dog chasing its tail and then squealing in pain when they bite it. Gemini’s require intellectual stimulus to keep them interested and Aries’ need a spark. Gemini’s aren’t the best listeners in the Zodiac and won’t pay much attention to emotional angst and everyday issues which can end up wounding Aries’ ego and annoying them. Aries’ passion and intensity could possibly frighten Gemini and scare them away.

Despite all this, Aries and Gemini have the potential for a very fun and loving relationship. Gemini’s tendency to debate about things can get Aries’ all fired up if it’s not about something serious, thus satisfying Gemini’s need for an intellectual debate and Aries’ need to be passionate and argue about something. Gemini’s and Aries’ both despise boredom with promises a very exciting and exhilarating relationship. Gemini’s are always evolving and changing which is good news to Aries’ who finds it hard to settle. This is a relationship that both sides can learn from. Gemini can show Aries’ the beauty of the mind and communication and Aries’ can show Gemini how passion can say things that words can’t. Neither are very fond of sharing emotions so there will be mutual empathy and understanding there when both are opening up. As problematic as this pairing is, it is capable of reaching a comfortable state of excitement and common ground, a lot of work is needed though.

Aries and Cancer:

Aries and Cancer tend to be a lot of people’s “problematic favourites” both being the extremities of their elements, they can either work very well or not very well.   Aries’ natural recklessness and disregard for the rules can upset and distress Cancer, sending them into melancholy and stress overload. Aries’ doesn’t intend to hurt people’s feelings, it’s just they’re very “do first, think later” kind of people. Over time, Cancer’s sensitivity could possibly irritate and repel Aries, making them more distant. When vulnerable, Cancers become quite jealous which can annoy Aries’ (even though they can match if not outdo that jealousy). Aries’ are notorious for their tendency to lash out intensely and then suddenly go back to normal which can frighten and confuse Cancer, making them become withdrawn and cautious.

This pairing has its perks however. Although Aries’ don’t show it, they can be subject to deep seated insecurities which they don’t like to spend any time thinking about, Cancer’s being the natural mother and carer of the Zodiac can look after and heal Aries’ without even noticing it. They can hold Aries’ down when it’s needed, making sure they don’t hurt themselves or anyone else in their daily pursuit. Cancer can make Aries feel at home in any situation which can be a new experience for this restless sign. Aries can spice Cancer’s life up with their infinite passion and vitality. They can bring Cancer out of their shell and help them get over little insecurities with a practical approach. This pairing has potential to be filled with passion and vibrant emotions when treated with care, a relationship of healing in different was, however, if either or both of them lose the rein, it can become a big emotional mess, hurting and hindering both involved.

Aries and Leo:

Aries and Leo is possibly one of the most playful and exciting pairings you can get – also quite a dangerous one. Both being vibrant fire signs, their fire can burn bright and fast. Both partners prefer to be dominant and must have things their way which can lead to them bumping heads an awful lot. Neither like to admit they’re wrong (Leos because of their pride, Aries’ because they’re headstrong) which can mean their fights can last ridiculously long.  Leos desire attention and affection which can sometimes come across as clingy to carefree Aries. Any bad criticism from Aries has to potential to hurt Leo’s vibrant yet somewhat sensitive pride. Leo’s playful and flirtatious nature towards people can make Aries feel threatened causing them to lash out, which can in turn anger Leo, so on and so forth. Aries’ impulsiveness can sometimes throw Leo who likes to have a routine. Without knowing it, Leos’ can to exploit other’s weakness’, in this case, Aries’ deep seated insecurities.

As tricky as fire signs can be together, they can be incredibly good for each other. Both signs enjoy an exciting and upbeat relationship leading to an abundance of passion in the relationship. The signs’ need for dominance guarantees a fun and interesting relationship, exploring possibilities in the hope of compromise. Aries’ can teach Leo to be less caring of what others thing meaning their pride won’t be as easy to break and Leo can teach Aries’ to not deal with things from an aggressive point of view as well as self-love and pride. Both signs like constructive challenges which means the relationship is very rarely idle. As fire signs, Leo and Aries’ can understand each other on an emotional level very well and are naturally able to comfort one and other. The passion between the pairing is indescribable, full of fiery love and playfulness. If these signs can work together and compromise when it comes to dominance and their tempers, this pairing has potential to be 10/10/

Aries and Virgo:

Aries and Virgo tend to be an incredibly difficult match, which is why I so very seldom hear of them. The reason for this is their extreme differences. Aries’ impulsiveness can mess with Virgo’s head and even worse- their emotions. Virgo’s are very systematic signs and they like to keep their emotions in a little labelled drawer with 50 locks on it and if Aries’ does something to upset that system it can turn in to (even more of) a nervous wreck. Because of their analytical minds, Virgos tend to be very critical towards their partners – even with the best intentions, and this can annoy Aries very much and low key wound their ego. Virgos are also the most grounded of the signs and although this can be beneficial, when in a relationship with Aries, it can cause a lot of conflict. Aries is a very freedom loving, impulsive sign that can feel very held back and restrained by Virgo’s attempt to ground them which can cause Aries to either lash out or drift completely.

Like any pairing, no matter how problematic it is, there are upsides. Aries and Virgo share a similar humour, both very witty and sarcastic, giving them a humour based foundation. If Virgo controls the grip they have on Aries fairly and properly, they can keep Aries grounded without being too overbearing or restraining, which means Aries won’t get themselves into many situations but at the same time isn’t being completely suffocated.  Because Aries’ are very self-assured they’re less dependent on their partner which is a big weight off Virgo’s shoulders while they maintain order in the relationship. Virgo’s own tendency to work things out on their own means that Aries’ don’t feel weighed down. Aries being a sign that likes to experience everything in life can push Virgo towards a more practical approach to self-discovery, helping them come out of their shell a bit and discover things about themselves they wouldn’t have learned otherwise. This relationship requires a lot of effort and compromise but it is possible.

Aries and Libra:

Being opposite of each other in the zodiac, the relationship between these two can either go really well, or horribly wrong. Libras are very idealistic lovers whose standards can put pressure on Aries and cause them to lash out, in turn Aries’ are incredibly impulsive and can mess up Libra’s ideals. Libras, in their determination to make the relationship as harmonious and smooth running as possible, can leave themselves open for manipulation. In fights, Libras will most likely be the first to apologise to restore harmony. Aries might play on this in order to get what they want, over time doing damage to Libra. Librans can be quite critical in pursuit of the perfect partner, this well-intended criticism can wound Aries’ ego and cause them to put up their defences up. Libra, like the other air signs, need intellectual stimulation and although Aries can provide that for them, they are not as passionate about it as Librans.

Libras are natural flirters and to Aries’, this makes them seem fun and inviting. In the early stages of the relationship, passion and romance runs high while Libra plays out their romantic fantasies (however simple they may be) and Aries is running off of pure passion for their new lover. As the relationship goes on, the relationship only becomes more interesting due to Aries’ dislike for boredom and Libra’s everlasting romantic demeanor. Aries, who secretly craves affection and validation is never short of it when in a partnership with Libra who likes to make the relationship as loving and happy as possible. Libra is the sign associated with justice and fairness and makes sure that every relationship they’re involved in is a fair and just as possible. Aries can benefit from this a whole lot – whether they like it or not, it teaches them to be more patient with their lover which can bring them a long way. As with any pairing of opposite signs, this relationship (with some work) can be bountiful and abundant in that each sign’s differences complement each other.

Aries and Scorpio:

Potentially one of the most intense and dangerous relationships in the zodiac, and Aries and Scorpio relationships are like a ride or die. Both signs have incredibly intense energies that can either make or break the relationship. Aries strives to be the dominant partner while Scorpio demands absolute control in the relationship which can lead to major clashes and extensive measures to assert their dominance. Scorpio’s controlling nature can repel Aries and cause them to lash out brashly. This can scare and hurt Scorpio whose defense is their offence, and unleash their legendary sting upon Aries. Aries being the unintentionally reckless sign they are, can accidentally hurt Scorpio who will either kick up a storm or just completely shut off from them. Scorpios have a blunt nature that sometimes Aries can take personally, damaging their ego and adding to any deep seated insecurities. The fights between these signs are incredibly intense, both being very fierce in their anger when hurt. This pairing if not worked through properly, is possibly the most toxic relationship in the zodiac due to the fact neither of them are great with emotions and both have dangerous tempers.

However, if this pairing has the right amount of compromise and understanding of one and other’s differences and set-backs, this pairing can make a very enjoyable and passionate relationship. Scorpio’s powerful libido and Aries’ ever-present underlying passion promise a steamy relationship behind closed doors. This is far from a co-dependent relationship since Aries’ exists in an air of independence, giving Scorpio the space to self-sufficient, just as they strive to be. The intensiveness of the relationship attracts both signs, making them addicted to their partner, resulting in a do or die relationship that leads to a strong commitment on terms they both agree with. A very enjoyable relationship, these signs both have somewhat dark and twisted humors (to a certain degree) which not many other people could understand. Scorpio and Aries relationships bring mystery and intuition together with passion and desire to create a steamy and intriguing experience for those involved as long as they can understand each other’s differences and work around them accordingly.

Aries and Sagittarius:

As any fire pairing, Aries and Sagittarius can be as dangerous as they can be successful. As an intense sign, Aries can repel Sagittarius who is generally very freedom loving and careless. Since Aries is reckless and Sagittarius is quite careless, both signs can end up hurting each other unintentionally. Sagittarius’ tendency to flirt can make Aries’ jealous and shake up their hidden insecurities. Aries’ tend to do first and think later which can result in them doing something to hurt Sagittarius without thinking. Sagittarius’ are always searching for something, the restlessness of this sign can annoy Aries and make them feel like they’re not doing enough for the relationship, when most of the time that isn’t the case. Although Sagittarius’ temper is the least explosive of the fire signs, they use their words as a weapon, making Aries (who is more suited dealing with aggression) vulnerable and somewhat defenseless.

Despite all of this, Aries and Sagittarius are highly compatible when it comes to relationships. Sagittarius’ free spirit and optimism entwined with Aries’ passion and vibrant nature promises a very lifting and enlightening relationship that both signs will thrive in. Since Sagittarius is a very optimistic sign, chances of the relationship lasting are quite high as Sagittarius makes the best of any bad situation. A very straightforward pairing, neither of these signs like to beat around the bush, problems are dealt with head on, progress is made efficiently and mind games are very rare which will contribute to making a strong foundation. Like the other fire pairings, both signs are very independent, giving each other the space they need and working great together as a team ( Sagittarius’ don’t care much for visible dominance so there are no battles for it.) If Aries can keep Sagittarius from getting bored in the relationship and Sagittarius can understand the root of Aries’ action, this pairing can be incredibly harmonious.

Aries and Capricorn:

Fire and Earth signs are quite tricky together, fire being too impulsive for earth and earth being too routine oriented for fire. Aries’ impulsive nature can both irritate and cause anxiety for Capricorn who must know where they stand on things and have some kind of structure in the relationship. Capricorn is known as one of the most mature signs in the zodiac – even in their young age. Aries’ being the first and most youthful sign of the zodiac tends to be intimidated by Capricorn’s maturity and innate wisdom causing them to lash out at times over seemingly small things. Capricorn’s introverted and thoughtful nature can come across as dull and boring to Aries’ who needs stimulation rather than reflection. Capricorn’s are also very ambitious signs, Aries who lives for “the moment” rather than the goal can feel intimidated and maybe even a little patronised. Capricorn needs to be spontaneous every now and then and try not to make Aries’ feel too threatened or belittled.

However this pairing can work surprisingly well if both involved are determined to make it work. Aries’ is the only fire sign Capricorns are compatible and vice versa! Capricorns, no matter how quiet and introverted they may be, give off an energy of self-assurance and confidence in their actions which pulls boisterous Aries’ in like a magnet. Unlike many signs who find Aries’ hard to keep up with, Capricorns know exactly how to handle them, they take no crap from them either, which is good for when an Aries needs to get back in line. The friendship between Aries’ and Capricorns is amazing and like in any relationship, friendship is key in any successful partnership. Capricorns tend to isolate themselves, sometimes without even noticing, because of their pessimistic nature. Aries can help bring Capricorn out of this when they feel it’s becoming unhealthy, thus potentially saving Capricorn from their own thoughts and worries (which is quite important when dating Capricorns). If Capricorn can make sure Aries’ feels valued in the relationship and Aries learns to be patient with Capricorn, this can be an incredible match.

Aries and Aquarius:

This so happens to be quite a contradictory relationship if we’re talking long-term. Aquarius is a very freedom oriented sign. They don’t have a jealous bone in their body and frankly they don’t have much time for people who do which means Aries’ attempts to make their partner jealous as payback for something is a waste and Aquarius finds it petty. Since Aquarius’ don’t care for jealousy, they sometimes tend to stray and expect Aries’ to feel ok with it. This can either anger Aries or make them feel inadequate, either way the outcome will not be pretty. Aquarius being an intellectual sign like the other air signs, needs intellectual stimulation and if Aries cannot provide this, there’s a chance Aquarius will get bored and seek it elsewhere. Because of Aquarius’ aloofness and Aries’ intensity, Aries may feel like the only one putting effort into the relationship which can result in flashes of anger throughout the relationship.

However, treated with the right amount of mutual understanding and compromise, Aries and Aquarius can make for a very fun and eccentric relationship. Both signs love freedom (only to different degrees) and if equality is maintained in the relationship itself, Aquarius can roll with Aries’ dominant nature. When Aries understands Aquarius’ detachment, they can be very thoughtful in that they don’t smother them, like some other signs might. Both signs by man" target=“_blank”>ENJOY the initial chase of the relationship and for Aries, Aquarius may seem unobtainable which only creates more passion and fun in Aries’ pursuit. When Aries’ passion can math Aquarius’ intellect and work together in harmony, the results are euphoric and enlightening. When Aries and Aquarius have mutual understand and respect for their needs, this pairing is near un-stoppable.

Aries and Pisces:

One of the most problematic pairings in the zodiac, not only fire with water, the youngest sign with the oldest. Pisces and Aries are different in many ways and this can either benefit the relationship or hinder it. Aries’ frequent outbursts can scare and hurt Pisces’ to tend to feel things very deeply and take a lot of things to heart. Even if they do not show it, the smallest things (even a badly worded sentence) can haunt Pisces’ feelings for days, and if Aries lashes out often, it can leave Pisces feeling drained over time. As a coping mechanism, Pisces’ tend to zone out a lot, giving them time to regenerate but Aries’ might not be able to comprehend this leading to them getting worried. Aries’ is portrayed as the classic hero, and Pisces the victim, when Pisceans victimise themselves it leaves them open to being taken advantage of. Despite their innocent disposition however, Pisces knows their partner’s weak points, and will not hesitate to play on them for their own gain or survival.

As problematic as this pairing can be, it can be equally beneficial. The youthful sign Aries’ has a lot to gain from Pisces and also a lot to offer. Pisces’ patient, sympathetic and non-condescending nature can help cool Aries down better than perhaps any other sign simply because they have a way of not making people feel patronised (which Aries despises). Pisceans are natural empaths and healers, throughout the relationship they can heal wounds Aries didn’t even know they had. Aries can teach Pisces to stop falling victim to other peoples games, teaching them to say no which can be hard for Pisces. They teach Pisces to stop letting themselves be walked on and will fight for them when threatened. Where Aries brings passion and fire to the relationship, Pisces brings romance and nurturing, combine these attributes together and the love between the two can be both feverish and sobering. Aries enjoys being dominant and Pisces enjoys being dominated which means both of them win. If Pisces learns to stop taking things to heart and Aries is patient with Pisces and their emotions, this pairing can be successful and hold a lot of mutual healing and learning.

badboy! park woojin pt. 1

bulletpoint

woojin x you 

probably considered angsty with a sliight hint of fluff at the end

pt 2 here

  • the boy brooding in the back of the classroom:
  • park woojin.
  • he almost never talked to anyone, but if he did?
  • he made them all fear for their lives afterward and they would avoid being within a 100 foot radius of him ever again
  • because of this, you didn’t dare to approach him
  • even your best friend once gave him a pencil he dropped and whenever you asked your best friend about woojin after that, your friend would begin to form tears and avoid the subject altogether
  • ok, so maybe you were a little curious about what made woojin so bad
  • albeit very scared still, but like 1% curious
  • one day, your teacher asked you to stay after school to help tutor a student in your math class
  • so that day, you didn’t walk home the same time as you usually did
  • that’s when you saw woojin a few feet ahead of you, walking out of school grounds as well
  • your breath hitched in your throat and you threw yourself behind a bush in case he would do anything to you if he noticed you were also there as the school campus was completely deserted at that point
  • your heartbeat pulsated violently in your chest, feeling like it would almost break through your sternum
  • but that 1% curiosity smacked your heart back into regularity and you decided to follow and observe woojin
  • no, this was not stalking. this was merely for research purposes
  • it seemed like every step you took was at least 10000 decibels 
  • nonetheless, you persevered onward with your quest … even though you weren’t sure what you were looking for
  • woojin first went into town to eat some street food
  • when he faced into your general direction, you dove into a store and pretended to shop around
  • woojin then weaved through the large crowd in the center of town
  • you had trouble looking out for him and keeping up with where he went
  • when you finally saw him again, he was heading down a small alley
  • as you made your way down that alley, the noise from the crowd quickly dissipated into nothing
  • you found that the only noise you heard was your own heartbeat
  • it sounded like your heart had made its way all the way to your ear and was about to jump out of it any second now
  • you couldn’t even hear woojins footsteps anymore
  • as you slowed your footsteps, and debated turning back to go home,
  • someone’s hand grasped over your mouth and twisted you around so your back was leaning against them and you could feel their breath next to your ear
  • in a husky growl, the person said:
  • “you following me, babe?”
  • suddenly, you’re flipped around again and you see woojin leaning against the brick building with a smirk playing on his lips
  • “n-no, i live here” you said, trying to feign even an ounce of confidence, despite how terrified you became all while trying to save yourself as well.
  • “oh, really? you live in these one of these stores or restaurants?”
  • “ … uh“
  • woojin breathed out a light laugh before resting his sharp gaze on you once more
  • “are you gonna tell me why you were following me now?”
  • he rolled his neck and cracked his fingers
  • you thought: ha ha HAAAAA … he … wouldn’t hurt me or anything.. right???? …right…?
  • woojin slowly crept forward, awaiting your answer
  • you two kept moving one small footstep at a time, until you felt your back hitting the wall across the alley from where woojin was standing originally
  • you sighed and shrugged.”well, honestly, i just wanted to know why people are so scared of you.”
  • he only laughed at you.
  • “what?” you snarked
  • he appeared taken aback at your sudden sharpness
  • “nothing. it’s just no one’s really been brave enough to do that,” his smirk and intense gaze returned but in fuller force, “until now.” he’s only an inch from your own face at that point
  • some higher being must have been controlling you at that point or you must have really not cared about whether or not you made it out alive because
  • you pushed woojin’s chest as hard as you could and said: “dude, you’re in my personal bubble.”
  • you straighted out your skirt and tidied your hair as you let out an exasperated sigh
  • you looked at him once more, waiting for his explanation.
  • he only let out a shallow laugh and shook his head.
  • “you are not as scary as everyone makes you out to be,” you commented
  • woojin pushed your shoulders back onto the wall behind you
  • you let out a wince from the sudden movement
  • swiftly, he put his face close to yours once more and said:
  • “that’s because,” he placed his lips next to your ear and whispered, ”i didn’t like anyone else.”
Mornings at Hogwarts

Ravenclaw Girls: hair always pulled up in fancy braids because they all do each others hair in the morning. They have mini study sessions before breakfast, curtains open, morning light streaming over books and notes. Eventually they maybe go to breakfast, or someone grabs food so everyone can keep studying. They nibble on toast and tea and fruit. Ussually studying turns into good natured debates or even just philosophical musing. Finally they head to class.

Gryffindor girls: the ones that like to be up early wake up the ones that don’t. There is a lot of fake fighting as they drag their friends out of bed. Its straight into sneakers and running shorts. They head for the grounds and run a few miles as the sun gets up. They run as long as they can, encouraging each other. They get back in time for breakfeast. Tired and sweaty they fill up on eggs and ham, maybe orange juice but usually water. They make it back to the common room and all jump into the showers, laughing. There is no insecurity. They dress with speed, hair pulled up in pony tails. Finally they head to class.

Slytherin girls: everyone gets up early on school days. They lay out mats on the common room floor. They go through push-ups, lunges, squats…. The workout is short but intense. Their muscles ache in the best way. They head to the bathroom, and shower and dress. They have perfected the messy bun. They do their makeup together. They don’t leave for breakfeast until everyone is ready, they leave the common room looking flawless and head to the great hall. They eat together and talk about ideas. The stay in the dinning hall as long as possible, enjoying the food and company. Finally they head to class.

Hufflpuffs girls: they get up leisurely but still early. They do yoga in the mornings. If its plenty warm they go outside, but if its not they stay in the common room, fireplaces blazing, furniture pushed up against the walls. The yoga is relaxed but everyone gets a good workout. They skip showers and dress for classes. They go to the great hall in groups. They eat cereal and hot cocoa. After eating they either hangout in the halls or visit the slytherin table until its time to leave. Finally they go to class.

puceyadrian  asked:

your pierced!harry art got me going on and on about this headcanon i saw and it was as if you captured it perfectly, i'm a huge fan on the idea that harry is a tattoo artist and also does/has a lot of piercings.. and in comes draco malfoy wanting a tattoo that covers his dark mark, but then later on coming back for more and more until he has a beautiful sleeve of stick and poke tattoos done by his crush aka harry

I can not believe how long it took me to answer this one omg I’m sorry ;;

absolutely can see this happening

Draco finally giving up his attempts to remove the mark and deciding rather to have it covered up - so in he struts to the tattoo parlour he’d been eyeing for some time and definitely not bc of the hot guy whom he occasionally sees having a coffee/smoking in front of the shop when Draco takes the more scenic route to his work

turns out the guy is in fact Potter of all people and before Draco can implode/disapparate/have a mental and physical meltdown, of course Potter sees him bc that’s just his luck. On the other hand, Potter seems just as appalled/amused to see Draco judging by the whole spectrum of colours that briefly passes his face (and also makes him look like a fucked up chameleon, Draco nearly feels sorry for him)

only this Potter must have been lifting his motorbike at least, has jewellery in places where Draco thinks they must be in way of all comfortable life and also to his utter disbelief has a haircut

upon Draco’s inquiry Potter scrunches up his face in a way that means bad news, clearly Draco’s share of luck in life had been spent before he was 10 years old 

apparently black magic markings can’t be tattooed over as they will bleed through any coverup, also will look blast-ended skrewt level of hideous, to quote Potter

Draco must have briefly shown An Emotion because Potter immediately (and to Draco’s horror almost sympathetically) suggests he could still tattoo around it and make something new out of it

Draco debates if his pride should be injured that Potter pretends he wants to help him, but ultimately concludes that he’s out of fucks to give and just wants the mark gone or changed yolo

He shows up for the first session and it’s not even awkward, Draco is ticklish and snappy when Potter deliberately presses the needle a bit harder into his skin. Draco has to keep his mark contained with a stasis charm as well so its magic won’t interfere with the other tattoo’s as Potter inks his arm

they are both tired after, but the tattoo’s starting to look pretty and Draco has to admit he’s looking forward to the next sitting for more than tattooing reasons

after the third session Draco notices Harry is freestyling around the originally agreed upon design, but it still looks great so he doesn’t say a thing

after the fifth session it’s starting to look like Harry’s going for a whole sleeve, so Draco asks him out for a Quidditch match. the tattoo is beautiful, but Draco’d prefer to keep it on his forearm only, thank you very much

Draco would however enjoy having more of the designs in different parts of his skin so he comes back. he absolutely doesn’t imagine the slightly louder exhale of  breath held back when he takes off his shirt

three more tattoos and a few coffees/quidditch matches later Draco concludes Harry’s tongue piercing is in fact a thing to delight in.
