It was Thursday again.

Coincidentally, it was your favourite day of the week (definitely not because it was you and Peter’s weekly date night, no, definitely wasn’t that.)

It was a bit unusual– it was like Thursday was the day in which all the criminals took a break for the week. Peter noticed this during his nightly patrols, that Thursday always had the lowest amount of crime to fight; and so, with much convincing from you - “Peterrrrrrr, c’mon, Queen’s best crime fighter has to take a break sometimes.” “You really think I’m Queen’s best crime fighter?” - you eventually managed to make Thursday night, date night.

So, that’s what you were doing now– setting up for a movie night on the couch with Peter. The weather was less than remarkable but you couldn’t help but be glad at the one way ticket to cuddling with your boyfriend. (He was amazing at cuddles so you always looked forward to movie nights.) 

The unmistakable theme music of Star Wars came through the speakers and you giggled as Peter’s face lit up with childlike excitement- god, you were dating an utter nerd. 

“C’mon Spiderboy,” You eagerly patted the spot next to you on the couch, laughing as he wasting no time in skillfully jumping over the back of the couch to land beside you. Peter loved to show off his ‘spider-side’ when Aunt May wasn’t around. 

Show off,” You coughed slyly, grinning as he stuck his tongue out at you in return. It was like every other Thursday. 


A yawn passed your lips as you blinked, shaking away your tiredness- c’mon, this was Star Wars! You weren’t just gonna go fall asleep in the middle of one of these movies. 

Though, to be fair, you’d made it pretty far; you had already finished A New Hope and you were nearing the end of The Empire Strikes Back but you were committed. You sat up a little straighter, pulling the blanket that you and Peter were snuggling under, as you realized the iconic scene you loved was coming. 

Peter smiled at the notion, watching as you mouthed along with the words on screen, almost perfectly in sync. God, he was dating an utter nerd.

I love you.”  You mouthed dramatically, taking a minuscule glance at Peter, blushing when you saw he was already looking at you. 

I know.” 

You sighed as you leaned back into Peter’s chest, pulling the blanket back up to your chin as you settled. 

“That is literally like the most romantic and perfect thing in existence.” You sighed again, your eyes trained on the screen as the scene continued. Peter laughed, replying casually. 

“That’s not possible, you’re the most perfect thing in existence.” 

Your heart stopped beating for a solid moment and you choked, spluttering silently and glancing with wide eyes at Peter who didn’t even seem to realize he’d said the most romantic thing ever. 

This goddamn boy, I swear to god, you cursed but it didn’t stop the heat from rising in your cheeks at the compliment because oh my god what the fuck peter. You were pretty sure even your ears were tinting pink and oh god this is embarrassing he’s not even making a big deal out of this its not like he just gave the best compliment you’ve ever received– 

Noticing you weren’t watching anymore, Peter turned his gaze, surprised when you squeaked and ducked your head under the blanket. 

You were desperately trying to cool your flushed cheeks, but it didn’t help when you heard Peter’s amused voice say, Are you– you’re hiding under the blankets because…you're blushing?”

“W-What! N-No, I, um, that’s just– I’m not, uh.” You groaned at how lame you were, unable to even form a response but Peter only laughed. Unexpectedly, the blanket was lifted and Peter ducked his head under to join you, your faces inches away. You blushed again and Peter grinned wider, almost a smirk. 

“Are you seriously embarrassed because I complimented you?” 

GoddAmn it Peter, can’t you see iSN’t hElping

Stop, Pete, I’m already embarrassed.” You muttered embarrassed, going to push his chest playfully but instead he caught you hand, intertwining your fingers as he grinned wider yet. 

“You’re so cute,” he whispered. He leaned in, delicately kissing you on the nose, knowing it would make you blush again. You couldn’t help but feel like kids under a blanket, sharing secrets when he whispered again. 

“I love you.”

I know.” 

Peter’s jaw dropped and you laughed at him, using your intertwined hands to bring him closer and kiss him once more. He was still shocked when you pulled away, now his cheeks burning red. 

“I can’t believe you just Han Solo’d me!” 

@froekenpest (is it working now?) and I are talking about Draco’s characterization, specifically having lots of life history and dealing with it.

Every now and then, Draco stumbles with his feelings. It’s shitty and he’s the worst person to be around ever because he’s moody and cruel and nasty and self-destructive, but he’s the type to disappear when that happens. He doesn’t want to be around anybody, and he doesn’t want anyone to see him–for vulnerability reasons, but also because he knows it’s not fair to lash out at people, even if he wants to (and he does).

I have this scene of Draco with his back to Harry. Harry trying to get Draco to talk about it, but the more he tries, the more infuriated Draco gets.

Harry just doesn’t get it. He couldn’t possibly understand the things Draco’s grappling with, because their lives have just been too different. He wouldn’t understand the way Draco needs to push at the bruises he’s harbouring until they hurt and feel like they’re bursting open, because that’s his catharsis: remembering every single mistake he’s made, every fucking choice that has led him to being where he is today, every cursed, wretched thing he’s ever done that make him this ugly amalgamation that’s more beast than human sometimes.

Harry couldn’t possibly understand, and that infuriates him even more. Harry, the perfect human. Harry, who is lauded as amazing, who saved the world and is treated like a hero, Harry who can do no wrong.

He’s so angry and bitter, and the next time Harry opens his mouth to say something, Draco jumps down his throat.

“Don’t treat me like your charity case, Potter,” he snarls, and behind him, Harry’s mouth clicks shut in surprise. There’s a second of silence, and then he exhales sharply, sounding angrier than Draco expects when he speaks next.

“Is that what you think this is–what you are? Charity?”

Draco smiles cruelly to himself, feeling the bitter words crawl up his throat and spill out of his mouth.

“That’s what you do, isn’t it, Potter?” he sneers Harry’s surname acrimoniously, and doesn’t have to be facing the man to see how he flinches at the animosity. “You take in the strays, people who can’t get by without your help. Isn’t that what you did with the  Weasleys? Pathetic and contemptible, too poor to even feed their children but too stupid to stop having more.”

Harry’s silence speaks louder than any words he could have said then. Draco feels the shame creeping up his neck, making his cheeks burn like he’s standing in front of a blazing fire.

See? He wants to shout into the silence. See what I am? Not so eager to help now, are you?

The quiet continues, and Draco tenses and relaxes at the same time, waiting for Harry to explode, to shout abuse at him, to hit him, assault him, call him exactly what he is and what he deserves.

Harry doesn’t do any of that. What he does is breathe, raggedly at first, and Draco counts the inhales, synchs up their breathing without really noticing.

Then, after what feels like a lifetime, Harry says:

“I won’t be here if you’re going to behave like this. When you’ve calmed down, I’ll be in the living room.”

He leaves, then: leaves Draco to his miserable desolation, and Draco triumphs in having driven him away. He’s fiercely glad that Harry’s left and incandescently angry at him at the same time. How dare he leave–how dare he not get angry–how dare he walk away?

He’s so bitter and angry and resentful in that moment, because Harry is supposed to be different. Harry isn’t supposed to give up on him, isn’t supposed to leave him alone: that’s just not what Harry does, and Draco is incensed.

How dare he be like everyone else? But then… of course. Of course he is. That’s what Draco wanted: he wants to be alone. He wants to push people away, because that means he’s right, that Draco is as big of a mess as he feels–that he isn’t worth staying for, and the thought burns and burns at him, making him even more furious.

Draco feels like a volcano is about to erupt inside him. It’s hot and angry and bubbling dangerously like if he so much as twitches, he’s going to burst and breathe fire more savage than fiendfyre, and he wants to let it–good god does he want to just let it out and let it consume him and burn the whole world to the ground.

It won’t come, he knows, because it never does, even when he’s burning brightest and wants it most, it refuses to manifest and Draco is trapped with it simmering just under his skin, zinging through his veins until he wants to tear at his own flesh to make it stop. But he can’t, because this is what he is. This is who he is–and that thought winds him higher.

(Of course, when he does come back down and regain sense of himself, he goes out and stiffly, unhappily apologises. He knows he’s wrong, he knows what he said is terrible and not true, but apologising still hurts, even if Harry–and the Weasleys–deserves it.)

I think that’s how Harry would handle Draco’s self-hating episodes. After the first couple times of them winding each other up and blowing up together, Harry would get smart and not engage when Draco was like that–just walk away and talk when he was less awful about things. And Draco would learn (conditioning, Harry is absolutely treating him like a dog, haha) that responding like that isn’t appropriate or even a good way to handle things, and they’d end up doing better together. And that’s how Harry helps.

Could a possibly request a minific from that reblog? If so, could I have gramander and a subtle kindness please. Thank you! P.s. I really love all of your writing, it's just stunning. Like wow. And I hope you're having a beautiful day. Xx

ANON. ANON DON’T SAY SUCH NICE THINGS TO ME. MY HEART CANNOT TAKE IT. BLESS YOU. YOU SO NICE.

Side note, I write weirdly when I’m sick sooooo sorry if it doesn’t make sense. I shall try my best! :D (proceeds to fail).

All the nurses were in love, it would appear; and it seemed to Newt that they were all in love with the same man. He had only been working at the hospital for about a week when he started noticing it - the way the nurses would light up around 8:30AM every morning on the dot. 

He saw the way they congregated in the hall to look through the door’s little window and spot him. Only Queenie seemed unaffected by the man; kind as ever as Newt watched her take a bouquet of flowers from the man and wish him a good day.

So one day, he decided to corner Queenie about it.

“What is with that bloke with the flowers that’s got every woman’s knickers all in a bunch?” Newt asked, startling Queenie from her work.

“Oh, you mean Mr. Graves?” Queenie said, her normally bright face instantly lighting up. “Of course everyone’s in love with him, he’s such a sweetheart. And quite a looker too, if you don’t mind me saying.”

She winked.

“But why, Queenie?” Newt asked, hefting himself to sit atop her desk. 

“You don’t know?” She asked with a bland little blink, then smiled - something strange behind her eyes. “You know what, you should meet him. He always stops by at 8:30, right here.”

“I don’t see why,” Newt grumbled, suddenly uneasy about meeting this stranger. “Seems silly. He’s just some bloke, right?”

Queenie stood to straighten Newt’s scrubs before shooing him off her desk. 

“Tomorrow, 8:30AM. Don’t forget,” is all she said. 

That night, he tells himself it’s foolish. No, he won’t go to the front desk to meet a total stranger. That’s just dumb…

And yet, there he was - sitting innocently on Queenie’s desk - waiting for a “coincidental” meeting with the man that had the hospital in an uproar. From the door, he had never quite gotten a good look at the man before. So nothing could prepare him for the moment that Queenie suddenly hushed his conversation and nodded at the front door of the hospital.

He was… he was perfect. Tan skin tucked away beneath a stark white button down and a tight black vest. The faintest wisp of chest hair peeking out from the top two undone buttons, sleeves rolled up to the elbows, forearms covered in slick black ink. Simple, flattering black trousers and crisp black boots. Hair pressed back, with just a few rebellious strands tickling his brows. Coffee black eyes, warm in the center like a dollop of cream. 

The man smiled at Queenie, then caught sight of him and blinked - curious, but not perturbed. And when he finally reached the desk, Newt felt his stomach drop at the creamy rich Irish lit of his voice. 

“How’s my girl doing today?” The man purred, and Queenie giggled.

“Right as rain, as always, Mr. Graves,” Queenie said as she stood. “Have you met Newt?”

“‘Fraid I haven’t,” Graves said, turning to address him, and Newt just wanted to melt into the desk and die. Graves stuck his free hand, the hand not holding a beautiful bouquet of wildflowers, out to him and smiled. “Percival Graves.”

Newt opened his mouth at he took the man’s hand, but all that came out was an embarrassing squeak followed by a pain moan of sorts and a crimson red flush. Graves’ smile, if possible, grew warmer.

“You’ll have to spell that one for me,” Graves teased.

Newt,” Queenie said, smacking Newt’s arm pointedly. “Is a new nurse here. I thought he should meet the hospital’s favorite visitor.”

Graves blushed ever so slightly - just the faintest hint of pink - at that and Newt couldn’t help but feel jealous that even when embarrassed, the man blushed so tamely, so handsomely, it wasn’t fucking fair.

“Ah, that,” Graves said, then turned to smile at him again. “Don’t listen to these angels, I’m really not as exciting as they build me up to be.”

Newt squeaked again, then jumped down from the desk suddenly - eager to be away. 

“Right, well, must run. Duties, and all that–”

Queenie stopped him.

“Wait, Newt, take these,” she said, passing the lovely bouquet from Graves firm hands to Newt’s trembling arms.

“Oh, do you not want to take them to your…?” Newt trailed off, stunned.

Graves shook his head.

“No, I never do. Wish them well for me,” Graves said with a little nod, before beaming at Queenie again, “Have a lovely day, Queensies.”

Queenie blew him a kiss goodbye as she quickly scribbled a number on a post-it. 

“Here, take them to this room if you don’t mind, Newt,” Queenie said, “I would do it, but I’m awfully busy.”

Curious, Newt thought as he walked away, hands full of flowers - she didn’t look awfully busy. But she did look mischievous as fuck. 

He takes the flowers to the room that Graves never visited, but brought flowers to everyday. All the way there, he pictured who this person might be. A lovely young lady in a coma, maybe - his fiancee. Sleeping away the years they had promised to each other, too painful for him to see. Or perhaps his grandmother or father. Or a coworker. 

Instead, the room belonged to a bald little girl with big blue eyes and a smile that didn’t deserve to die. Newt slipped the flowers into her lap and melted - taken away for a moment by the light of her excitement - as she buried her face into them and beamed. Her mother wiped away a tear that he daughter didn’t catch, but Newt did. Her father placed them in a vase, only –

There were no other vases… And this man brought flowers every day?

“Rest up now,” Newt said softly in parting, then went about the rest of the day with the stranger - Percival Graves - on his mind. He found himself eagerly listening whenever the nurses spoke his name. He kept track of where the flowers went, a different room each time. He tried to connect the dots, but couldn’t, so finally - he went back to Queenie.

“Alright, spill,” Newt said in a rush, startling her again. “What gives?”

“Hmm? You’ll have to be a bit more specific, honey,” she smiled knowingly.

“That handsome bloke, Graves. What’s up with the flowers?”

“Handsome, hmm?” Asked a voice from behind him, amused and warm and terrifying. Newt just about shot out of his skin - then burned out of it, he was flushing so bad. 

“Running a bit late today, Mr. Graves,” Queenie smiled, winking. Graves chuckled bashfully.

“Forgot the shop keys at my place, set me back a bit.”

“Kind of you to still make the trip,” Queenie said as she accepted the flowers from him as she always did. Graves shrugged.

“They were just going to die if I didn’t. I’d rather them go here where they can slip away making someone smile rather than let them wilt in my shop, unseen. I don’t know why people don’t enjoy wildflowers more,” Graves said. 

“Me neither. Well, their loss. I’m sure that…” she trailed off as she looked at her computer, “Ah! Ms. Johanson will love them. She’s going into surgery today and could use the smile.”

“Perfect,” Graves said, “You’re such a saint, Queensies, you always know where my flowers need to go. Bless you.”

“Wouldn’t be no saint without the man that gave’em,” she said.

Newt blinked, the pieces falling into place.

“You’re a florist,” Newt said bluntly.

Graves blinked. “Yes… you didn’t know?”

“No, I thought…”

Graves chuckled.

“You thought I had a loved one tucked away in a bed here somewhere?” Graves asked, then said, “If I did, I’d be sitting in the chair beside’em every damn day. No, got no one to sit beside, thank God. Single as the day as I was born. I just stop by with the flowers I can’t sell anymore and let Queenie here give’em to a good home.”

Newt blinked.

“That’s…”

Graves looked down at his shoes, a flush building lightly on his cheeks. “Foolish, I know. Everyone tells me what a waste of money it is. I could wait another day to sell’em but–”

“–hot,” Newt blurted out before he could stop himself. Silence fell between the three of them. Queenie looked far too pleased for Newt’s comfort.

He opened his mouth to apologize, but Graves’ shocked face just melted into amusement and a unidentifiable flicker of something Newt doesn’t quite catch before giving Queenie a parting wink.

“Gotta run, Queensies,” he says, then smiles differently for Newt. “Newt.”

And he’s gone, walking away again - his ass a fucking sin in his pants. 

“He’s a good man, that Mr. Graves,” Queenie said as they watched him slip through the hospital’s front doors again. “He’s got that subtle sort of kindness. Don’t you think?”

“So it would seem,” Newt squeaked, “I’m just gonna go lock myself into a closet now and die, bye Queenie.”

“Bye dear!”

The next morning, there’s two bouquets at the front desk. Wildflowers for Mr. Scorsfield in 303b, and a handful of Forget-Me-Nots littered with Daffodils and baby’s breath for Newt, tagged with a little card bearing nothing but a number and this:

things I want to tell the signs
  • aries: you were my favorite, once upon a time. but you didn’t care, you never did. you don’t care about anything anymore — you’ve become so bitter that you can’t even see anything beyond the darkness you’ve created. let your eyes open, aries. the world is not perfect, but I swear there is light in it as long as you look for it.
  • taurus: I admire you so much. you’ve always been so determined with your eyes set on the stars and your feet planted on the ground, and the amount of motivation you have could move mountains and power cities. but you need to understand that not everyone is like that — not everyone is made of steel instead of bone. don’t look down on those you find unworthy, or you’ll find yourself alone in the kingdom you created.
  • gemini: you fascinate me. there’s something about you that makes everyone open up, and you have a way of putting people at ease that I’ve never seen in anyone else I’ve met. just being around you makes people feel special, and it’s a rare talent to have. but you can’t just throw away a friend and pick up another whenever you get bored, switching whenever you like — we are not toys. eventually, they will get tired of your games, and they will not return to you. your charm is not unlimited, and you should not take advantage of it. no one wants to be the doll sitting on the shelf, just waiting for you to pick them up again.
  • cancer: I don’t really understand you. you and I are so different, in almost every way, but I understand this — you try to protect yourself from the world, almost too much sometimes. I know that you’re just trying to shield yourself from the pain, but your armor is more effective than you think. nothing can reach you — not joy, not love, not despair. you are unmoved by the world, cancer, and this is not you. I know it isn’t. there is so much more to you, but to prove it, you have to show it, even to yourself. don’t be afraid to let yourself go. I promise, you will be okay. you and I might not be as different as we expect.
  • leo: you’re much more compassionate than people give you credit for. you’re the first to stand up for a friend, even if it might make you look stupid, and the first to rush in with a hug and a smile when they succeed. but your stereotype of being self-centred isn’t completely baseless. sometimes, I just want you to listen, and do exactly that. just listen and try to understand. don’t make it about you, don’t try to compare it to one of your experiences, don’t dismiss it like it’s nothing. you do have a habit of doing that sometimes. every one of your flaws is endearing, but you aren’t perfect. sometimes, other people want their time in the spotlight as well.
  • virgo: you’re the most helpful person I know. there’s never been a time where you’ve refused someone’s plea for aid, even when it meant you had to go out of the way to do it. but I know that in your mind, you’re analyzing them down to their smallest flaw. there are too many times where you judged too quickly, criticized too harshly, and maybe they don’t affect you, but we don’t have skin made of iron. you have to slow down, soften, remember that everyone is only human and that yes, you are too. be lenient with everyone, including yourself. despite everything, everyone needs someone like you.
  • libra: it’s so hard not to love you, libra. it’s so hard, because your aura of warmth and happiness is just irresistible, but it’s also so so difficult to love you. I know you value love like nothing else, but it’s not fair of you to give yourself to the person that shows you the most affection, only to take it all away the next day. it’s so selfish of you to play around with their hearts. I know all you want is someone to treat you like their princess, but you’re hurting everyone around you. and yourself, as well. please stop. you need to learn to live independently, not rely on whoever comes your way next.
  • scorpio: life isn’t perfect, and I know that you know that as well as I do. but it’s not all or nothing, scorpio. you can’t pretend that nothing’s wrong and that you’re as happy as can be one day, and then break down and lash out at everyone the next. it all takes balance. treat yourself gently, know that you’re more precious than people have ever shown you, and make sure that you’re okay — not for others, but for yourself. let yourself be sad, and let yourself be happy, but don’t take anything out on others. and I swear to you that one day, someone will come along that loves you as hard as you love other people.
  • sagittarius: why do you feel the need to isolate yourself? you put out the image that you’re constantly moving, searching for the next big thing, but I know that deep inside, it isn’t what you truly want. please don’t hide your emotions — they aren’t a vulnerability. and stop pretending as if you don’t care about anything. you care, care so much more than anyone, that I think it scares you. you are not heartless, sagittarius, and I know that all too well. I understand that you think it’s dangerous to place your trust in someone, and maybe it is. but it will be worth it, I can promise you that. stop driving away all the people that just want to help you — you’re killing the only lifelines you have, the only ones keeping you from drifting away. the sad truth is, you can’t get through the adventure that is life all alone.
  • capricorn: you're so incredibly steadfast in everything you do, and it's amazing to me. you never compromise your opinions or your beliefs for something else, and you've always stood by your friends when others might have been long gone. but sometimes, you need to learn the difference between being determined and being uselessly stubborn. accept when you're wrong, and grow. your determination is outstanding, but a brick wall can move nowhere.
  • aquarius: you’re so so cold. you freeze out all the people that dare to stay next to you, and it’s not fair to them. it’s not fair to you, either. you deserve someone that tries to understand and care for you, as much as you refuse to think so, and hurting the ones that love you is so sad to watch. you are deserving of love, aquarius, and I want you to know that. but you have to accept the love that people are trying to offer you. trust that you are worthy of it, and don’t push them away. you would be surprised to see how much brighter the world looks with someone by your side.
  • pisces: you are the best person I have ever met in my entire life. you care so deeply, feel so deeply, that I think it might be killing you. but still, you don’t seem to mind. your entire being is so self-sacrificing that it makes me want to cry — and I never cry. sometimes I just wish you would scream, punch walls, say things that you don’t mean, so that I know that you can stand up for yourself. but it’s so easy for other people to take advantage of you, and I’m so angry at the people that do. stop apologizing for things that weren’t your fault. you deserve the entire universe, and don’t you dare for a second believe that you don’t.

anonymous asked:

I'm so sorry if this sounds ignorant, and I'm sure you're tired of explaining it, but do views or "hits" on Ao3 mean anything? Because i'll see the posts about authors needing kudos and comments (which i understand completely) but i'll also see the view count and i'm like "but it's got so many hits, just go by that too!" So what goes into an author truly knowing how well they're doing?

Hi there! And yeah, I’ve explained how this works before, but I’m always happy to explain it again. Because it bears repeating. :)

Hits on AO3 mean very little. Someone clicks through to the fic, reads the tags and summary, maybe the first few paragraphs of a novel-length fic, and then nopes out without finishing. It still registers a hit.

Writing a multi-chapter fic posted in weekly installments that has a significant following? Yeah, hits are also meaningless here, because every time you post a new installment and all your dedicated readers click through to read the next chapter? They each register new hits. They’re not UNIQUE viewers to the entire fic, yet it can still look that way in the hit counter. And if it’s a 50 chapter fic that posts over the course of a whole year? The “compound” hits really start to add up, despite each of those unique readers only being able to leave 1 kudos (albeit multiple comments, if they so desire).

If something we post generates a thousand hits but only 100 kudos, it can start to feel like a lot of readers may not have bothered to read to the end, you know? If I make it to the end of a fic, I hit the kudos button. It takes literally one second, and in my mind it’s the equivalent of saying, “Thank you for writing this and posting it for free for my enjoyment.”

I personally don’t have the “false hits equivalency” problem that writers who post WIP’s do, because I always post complete works. Even when I’ve tried to post serially, I end up giving up after a few days and just going ahead and posting the entire thing. I tried to do that with Ultraviolet, posting a chapter a day, and lasted five whole days before just posting the rest all at once. I have no patience for drawing things out unnecessarily. :P

As a result, the hits count on it are artificially inflated:

2269 hits as of today, when I posted it back at the end of June. But heck, there’s more than 10% kudos-to-hits ratio, so even considering that I know a number of people had been reading along as I posted the first five chapters, that’s still a pretty decent average. Believe it or not, that’s considered to be fairly excellent as a hits-to-kudos ratio.

Now on to the thing I just posted a few days ago, Dean’s Days Off. I posted it all at once (note the posting date):

That’s a lot of hits, considering I can assume that most of them are not redundant, with the same readers clicking back through to read a new chapter. Still, even working under the assumption that A LOT of those are unique hits from different people, I’m left with the assumption that less than 20% of them actually read all the way to the end, because of the kudos.

This theory works FOR NOW, because this is a new story. I doubt many people have had a chance (even if they loved it and intend to read it again someday– which is just wishful thinking on my part, but whatever) have had a chance to go back and read it again already, you know? So these are largely most probably original hits. But over time, there may be a fair few people who return to read it again and CAN’T leave kudos again. The hits-to-kudos ratio will inevitably drop over time.

Plus there’s also the factor in the other direction– readers who click through and then download the story (I always do this with fic I love, partly because it’s easier to read on my kindle, but also because I’ve see too much fic I love get taken down by the authors, and I like to make sure I have a copy in case that ever happens). I have fic I’ve reread NUMEROUS times, but the author has no way of knowing how much I adore their writing in that case UNLESS I EXPLICITLY TELL THEM.

AO3 doesn’t keep statistics for downloads. Unless a reader tells me, I have no idea that they may have downloaded my story to read again. It doesn’t even generate another hit in that case, you know?

In any case, kudos, comments, OR hits– none of them is a perfect gauge for readership. Hits may be meaningless. I think 3 of the hits for T&S were generated by me– one of which was me noping out within a page or two of starting because there was no way in hell I was gonna keep reading, and two of which were unlabeled links to the effect of, “OMG I JUST READ THIS THING AND I NEED A MOMENT TO RECOVER,” which is an intriguing sort of post where the words “THIS THING” were a link to it… I had no idea, but lo and behold, I generated a “hit” to it. >.>

I’ve clicked on fic recs that from the description in the post sounded right up my alley, only to see something in the tags on AO3 that made me nope out of reading, or got a short way in to the story before realizing it just wasn’t my thing and closing out. All of that generates hits. Meaningless, meaningless hits.

I have opened fic, decided to “Mark For Later” so I can open it again and read it when I’m in the right mood, or when I have time to devote to it, or whatever. I have A LOT of fic Marked For Later. Still, opening it to mark it and add it to my list generates a hit. It’ll generate another hit when I do eventually go back and read it. Possibly generating another hit when I open it yet again trying to remember if I’ve read it… 

Or the worst– I’ve had the thing open in a tab for two weeks hoping to find the time to read it, and every time Chrome refreshes the page (because Chrome does that) it generates a new hit… I kinda feel guilty about that…

Hits are ultimately meaningless.

Kudos at least have SOME meaning. A unique reader read the entire thing, got all the way to the end, and felt good enough about reading it to hit what essentially amounts to the THANK YOU NICE WRITER PERSON button.

Some people are willing to spend a little more time writing a comment. Anything from a “Thank you for writing this” to “Oh gosh I love this story, and xyz was my favorite!” all the way to leaving a running commentary on every chapter or a five paragraph book review at the end. Or heck, just an incoherent keysmash with a bunch of exclamation points.

Or one of my personal favorites, “I just read this again and can’t leave more kudos, so have this <3″

I don’t understand the resistance to clicking the kudos button if you read the entire story and derived any enjoyment from it whatsoever. If you’re embarrassed about it, you can always log out of AO3 and leave kudos anonymously. No one will ever know it was you. :P

But I’ve had people ask me this before, wondering why they should even BOTHER hitting Kudos, and it’s like… you read this entire story, for the low low cost of zero dollars, and can’t be fussed to even click the Instant Thank You Button? That’s… shocking and frustrating as a writer. Some of my longer fic may have taken me HUNDREDS of hours to write, edit, etc. And it doesn’t merit half a second of time to click a button. I mean, sure, Dean’s Days Off is kinda short compared to some of my other work, but it still represents about 80 hours of my life. I spent about 80 hours working on that story. I spent several hundred hours working on Revenge of the Subtext. And even more than that working on Around the World in 24 Days. That’s a lot of hours. Can I get half a second of your time as an acknowledgement that it was worth it?

If I make it to the end of a story of any length, that’s automatically kudos. Job well done, Writer Person. You have suitably entertained me.

I admit that I am still personally weirded out by leaving comments, but I do try and force myself to, especially if it’s a longer work. I get this OH GOSH PLEASE DON’T LOOK AT ME BUT YOU HAVE GIVEN ME FEEEEELINGS mentality about leaving comments. I turn into Dean Winchester and clam up. I TOTALLY GET THAT REACTION to leaving comments. That’s why the kudos button exists in the first place. No embarrassment required. Just a Thank You that writers can acknowledge in a measurable way. Unlike hits, which honestly we have no idea how many of them even read past the introduction let alone the entire story.

I wish there were some more accurate metric for calculating just how well received our works are, but really this is all we have. We don’t have bestseller lists. Our readers don’t have to pay for our work. Leaving kudos or liking our tumblr posts is great, and lets us know at least our followers appreciate what we’ve written. Leaving comments is fantastic because we can share the joy, answer questions, reply to theories y’all have about our stories (heck nothing is better to me than having someone meta-analyze my writing! I LOVE THAT AND WOULD LOVE TO SQUEE WITH JOY AT YOU!). Reblogging our tumblr posts is like the ultimate recommendation. It says not only someone read and enjoyed what we wrote, but wants other people to find the thing too.That’s how we find new readers, especially if the post ends up tagged with stuff like, “OMG THIS WAS SO EXCELLENT!” or whatever. Damn near makes my week. :P

But if we post something, even if it gets tons of hits, if no one bothers to hit the kudos button at the end, it can very quickly start to feel like maybe nobody ever read all the way to the end, so why even bother…

I probably shouldn’t have turned this into an essay, but since that seems to be my trademark, I guess I’ll just go ahead and post it…

THIS. SPEECH. THOUGH.
  • Doctor: What is it that you actually want?
  • Bonnie: War.
  • Doctor: Ah, right. And when this war is over, when you have a homeland free from humans, what do you think it's going to be like? Have you thought about it? Have you given it any consideration? Because you're so close to getting what you want. What's it going to be like? Paint me a picture. Will you live in houses? Will you go to work? Will there be holidays? Oooh! Will there be music? Do you think people will be allowed to play violins? Who's going to make the violins? Well? Oh, you don't actually know, do you? Because like very other tantruming child in history, Bonnie, you don't actually know what you want. So let me ask you a question about this brave new world of yours. When you've killed all of the bad guys and when it's all perfect and just and fair. When you have finally got it exactly the way you want it... what are you going to do with the people like you? The troublemakers. How are you going to protect your glorious revolution from the next one?
  • Bonnie: We'll win.
  • Doctor: Oh, will you? Well, maybe you will win. But nobody lives for long. The wheel just keeps turning. So, come on, break the cycle.
  • Bonnie: Why are you still talking?
  • Doctor: Because I want to get you to see, and I'm almost there.
  • Bonnie: Do you know what I see, Doctor? A box. A box with everything I need. A fifty percent chance.
  • Kate: For us, too.
  • Doctor: And we're off! Fingers on buzzers. Are ya feeling lucky? Ready to play the game? Who's going to be quickest? Who's going to be luckiest?
  • Kate: This is not a game!
  • Doctor: No! It's not a game, sweetheart, and I mean that quite sincerely.
  • Bonnie: Why are you doing this?
  • Kate: Yes, I'd quite like to know that too. You set this up. Why?
  • Doctor: Because it's not a game, Kate! This is a scale model of war. Every war every fought, right there in front of you! Because it's always the same. When you fire that first shot, no matter how right you feel, you have no idea who's going to die. You don't know whose children are going to scream and burn, how many hearts will be broken, how many lives shattered, how much blood will spill until everybody does what they're always going to have to do from the very beginning: sit down and talk! Listen to me, listen. I just want you to think. Do you know what thinking is? It's just a fancy word for changing your mind.
  • Bonnie: I will not change my mind.
  • Doctor: Then you will die stupid. Alternatively, you could step away from that box. You could walk right out of that door and you could stand your revolution down.
  • Bonnie: No. I'm not stopping this, Doctor. I've started this, I will not stop it. Do you think they'll let me go after what I've done?
  • Doctor: You're all the same, you screaming kids, you know that? Look at me, I'm unforgivable. Well here's the unforeseeable: I forgive you! After all you've done. I forgive you.

Hi guys! Thanks for the amazing work you're doing :) I'm wondering if you have any fake relationship or arranged marriage fics? Stay awesome!

Hi there! Thank you for your ask and your compliments. So, fake or arranged relationship / marriage? You’re lucky that is one of our favorite subjects! If it’s non AU it’s always such a drama ‘cause Dean and Cas are being stupid and Sam is most of the time being hilarious, and if it’s AU… Well, let’s say, best drama is here in this tag. Among many other tags. Seriously, we’re not being that plausible anymore since we’ve too many “amazing”, “the best drama” and “my favorite” tags.

Anyway, get comfortable and start reading because these are awesome! Once again. Meanwhile I’m selling myself for some rich, good-looking manager or angel-bad-ass-boss or, well, for any kinda of Cas. Have fun! – Admin J

Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★ ★

Admin J’s notes: I need this one finished like right now. RIGHT NOW. Please! I love it so much and I go to check it like every day ‘cause I live in hope that the author will post an update sometime very soon. That kind of a manager is the reason why I’m in this field. I’m still expecting my own manager Castiel to appear into my life. So far it ain’t looking good, though…

Summary: Dean Winchester is not thrilled about taking an office job at one the most powerful media corporations in the country. His work has always been hands on, but when Charlie tells him about the job opening and its comfortable salary, the temptation is just too great to turn down. And really, it wouldn’t be too bad if it weren’t for the blue-eyed man that also works there.

Castiel Novak and Dean Winchester have crossed paths far too often over the last 12 years, with an unsavory outcome nearly every time. This time though, walking away is just not an option as they’re forced to collaborate on a project and learn to navigate each other like civilized human beings. For Dean and Cas though, nothing ever goes quite according to plan.

Admin J’s notes: I know I recced this once before and I don’t wanna do it again, but… It’s just so gooooood. Let’s all send many comments and maybe the author will continue it for us, okay? I NEED THIS TO BE FINISHED. It’s unfair to start something this good and not finish it. I’ll take back all the stars I given to it. It really should be illegal not to finish your fics if you’ve once started to publish it.

Summary: When the angel Castiel found himself married to a lonely mechanic to avoid deportation, he expected nothing in his neatly ordered world would change.

But then, he never anticipated Dean Winchester.

Admin J’s notes: “You’re already perfect.”

Please, let me cry! PLEASE! my poor heart can’t take lines like that. Where is my own Dean or Cas who’s gonna say things like that to me?! Not fucking fair. Until the point in which they decide to get married right away this was so good, but I just couldn’t give it five stars because reasons. Because I’m a skeptical piece of shit, really.

Summary: And they’re gonna get married…At least, Sam and Sarah are. Dean and Cas are just pretending so that Sam’s in-laws will cut him some slack. That’s what Dean keeps telling himself anyway, as the lines between real and pretend start to blur, and he and Cas become closer and closer in the lead up to the big day.

Admin J’s notes: Do you know the feeling when you only need to see the name of the author and you already know you’ll love the story? That what happens to me with museaway’s fics, and this one wasn’t an exception. The crossover part was good, even though those fail in many fics. I like grumpy Cas and I like how Dean freaked out and the car part (“Don’t watch, Baby”). This is awesome!

Summary: A routine haunting lands Dean in a historic hotel with his brother, a flirtatious Cas look-a-like, and a grouchy Angel of the Lord masquerading as his husband.

Summary: There’s a vengeful spirit, so Cas drops in to play the role of Dean’s fiancé. Then there are Girl Scout cookies, and dusters, and Sam makes lots of friends while Dean and Cas earn themselves the reputation of the obnoxious bickering couple.

Admin A’s notes: Judging by the amount of kudos this story has everyone else loves this story :’D So I’m reccing it despite my own dislike of it. I just can’t handle the amount of angst this has. I mean I love angst but this just (for me) feels like something a teenager with no real knowledge of “life” would write. Which isn’t really a bad thing necessarily, just not something I would enjoy reading at this age. When I was fourteen I would have loved this fic though!

Admin J’s notes: The author’s name touches me in some very deep way. It’s amazing and this note has nothing to do with the fic, I just wanted to point it out.

Summary: Castiel is an omega prince, who will let himself starve to death before he can be fetched by his betrothed. Things change a little when his betrothed comes for him a bit earlier than he expected.

Summary: Castiel knew that as Prince of the Oceanic Kingdom , it was his duty to serve his King and country, and that he should feel honoured that his father had chosen him to bear the responsibility. Yet, whenever he thought about it, his heart would sink like an anchor to the bottom of the sea. Never in his life had he dreamt that his Father planned on selling him off to the Inlander nation as if he were merchandise.

  • Harry: You were staring at yourself in the mirror, your reflection not showing what you wanted. You looked bloated, fat was in places that you never noticed before. You continuously sat in front of the mirror pinching at you arms, stomach, and thighs. The scale said you lost 10 pounds so why does it feel like you have gained 45? The media was always slamming you about being Harry's biggest girlfriend but you never caught sight of what they saw until today. You laid face down on the bed and just started to weep. You wish you could go back to the time when you didn't need to worry about body image, when you were tiny and proud of it. You were having a mental breakdown and you were all alone. "Babe! I'm home!" Harry's voice echoed through the house. You tried to get yourself together before Harry came up stairs, but you were a little too late. "What's going on?" He asked kicking off his shoes and sitting next to you in bed. "Nothing." you shrugged trying not to worry him. "You can tell me anything, you know that." He insisted kissing your cheek. There was a moment of silence and you then poured yourself out to him. Told him all about how you feel. After you finished your rant you hung your head, ashamed that you said anything. "Hey, look at me." he cooed as you lifted your head. "You're perfect to me, you're the best thing that has happened to me in a while, so stop getting yourself down and stop caring what everyone else thinks, okay?" He smiled, and you closed your eyes and nodded. "Because I think you're perfect." He said bringing your lips to his, sharing one last kiss before you both drifted into a slumber.
  • Niall: You and Niall were back at it again. You guys are having another argument over something stupid because he was in another one of his moods. "I am so tired of walking on eggshells around you! Its always one thing after another with you!" He yelled slamming his hands on the table. It was probably best that you were on opposite sides because you probably could have strangled him. "You think you're walking on eggshell around here? I haven't even done anything and you're screaming at me! You think I don't walk on eggshells!" You retaliated. "You're such a bitch yanno, and I work my ass off everyday unlike you who just sits around on yours! ." That one hurt, and you had no come backs. You were too nice to call him anything back so you took your hands off the table and walked away. It took him a minute to realize what he did wrong, and he was soon following you as you went to grab your shoes. "Where are you going?" He asked. "I can't be here right now." You sighed slipping on your Vans, lacing them loosely. "You can't just leave." He said grabbing your wrist. "Watch me." You said shaking your wrist loose and going to the door. "No wait!" He insited blocking the door. "I didn't mean what I said, I was angry and stupid." You avoided his eyes and tried to push pass him. "Look at me!" He said as you decided to look up. "I love you." He said. "Niall." You sighed. "No, I love you, you're not allowed to leave." He said his eyes almost tearing up. "Let me leave." You insisted.
  • Zayn: You hung your head as Zayn kept pacing back and forth. You knew what you did was wrong, but you don't even remember what happened exactly. "I can't believe you did this." He boomed. "To be fair I was drunk." You said, head still hung. "You honestly think that makes everything better?" He asked. "My drunk fiancé can't even stay loyal tp me, at a famous bar, and there were people watching your every move! Do you know how that looks!" He started yelling, getting madder ever minute. "You're ruining everything that we worked so hard to keep normal, do you realize that?" He asked angrily. "I know, it was a mistake, I don't even know what happened." You sighed, knowing he was mad. "You have nothing to say for yourself do you? You haven't even apologized yet, you have been trying to form an excuse." He was angry, his fists in tiny balls at his sides. "I can't apologize for something that I am not even sure happened!" You said quiet as possible. "Look at me!" He demanded and your head snapped to his face, you knew that was a mistake. His eyes were filled with pain, you could see the love for you, but he was just disappointed. "Nothing?" He questioned. "You have nothing to say?" You dropped your head. "No, look at me!" He demanded again. "I'm sorry." You whimpered. "I really am."
  • Liam: You and Liam have been getting more and more serious in your relationship. You have been spotted in public together and that just helped with you guys coming out as a couple and not just best friends. You guys were on your way to a movie when you both got mobbed by the paparazzi. Technically, management wouldn't let Liam admit to anyone about you but the constant media attention has given people a hint. "I don't know Liam." you said playing with your fingers. "I don't think it would be good media for you if we were together." You sighed. "What are you talking about?" He asked resting his hand on yours. "You know the word is getting around about us and I don't think people are going to like you being with me." He started to rub your hand slowly. "What in hell makes you think that?" He asked. "You know, I'm not like Sophia or Danielle I'm not a model, or dancer, or anyone important. I just think I am not the best right now." He interlocked your fingers. "Look at me." He said lifting your chin with his free hand. "I could care less what anyone else thinks, I love you and you should know that." He said kissing your hand.
  • Louis: You are having dinner with Louis family for the first time. You and his sisters got along just fine, and they loved you at first sight, it was his mom who wasn't a big fan. Louis's past relationships went pretty far and each time they ended in demise, so his mom was very skeptical of you and she didn't seem to pleased. As soon as you sat down and Louis introduced you two you could feel the tension. When she asked about school and what your studying for she basically laughed when you said childhood education. You didn't understand why she was acting like she hated you before you even met. The question became too much for you to handle before you excused yourself from the table to go to the bathroom. You went up the stairs to the bathroom an you just took a few deep breaths. A few moments later there was a light knock on the door. "Darling, its me let me in." Louis's voice ran through the door. You opened it and he stepped in. "Are you okay, you seemed frazzled when you left." He said holding my hands. "Yeah, I'm fine." I sighed. "No you're not, what's going on in that pretty little head of yours?" He asked. "Its silly, I just know your mom doesn't like me." I sighed. "First of all who cares, second of all look at you, you're perfect, my mom would have to be crazy to not think you are the most perfect thing in the world." He smiled. "Look at me." He said. "Get out of your head, you're perfect." He smiled and kissed your head.

anonymous asked:

Can you do something where like you're really far along in your pregnacy with luke, so you're grouchy all the time and kind of take it out on luke and then you realize how you've been acting and apologize? I know, I'm sorry it's a lot

Don’t apologize it’s not at all a lot and it’s actually pretty cute. I am going to just do it really quickly here tho bc it’s not going to be very long i hope that’s alright. (:

Being pregnant is one of the best times of your life they’d said. Mine was over before I knew it, one woman shared on the website you’d gone on. My husband was honestly the best, another woman had said couldn’t have done it without him.

“Couldn’t have done it without him,” you grumble miserably, shutting the laptop. People forget to tell about all the bad parts about pregnancy like the mood swings and constant cravings and the sleepless nights and god who could forget the swelling up like a balloon? Not that those ladies on the internet would know because they’re all apparently perfect and don’t have aching feet or back and haven’t put on any weight aside from their belly.

Maybe part of you resented them because they all seemed to have something you lacked in the pregnancy, your husband. It’s not like it was his fault, he had to do touring the past couple of months in order to make sure he had a few months off for the baby and either way he was here now.

It’s not that you hated being pregnant, you actually really loved it, constantly posting pictures of the bump, but you were more than exhausted and the baby was due two weeks ago but baby girl Hemmings seemed to decide otherwise so you were all but dying.

Luke was no help except for the fact that he was. He was more than willing to go out and get you anything you asked for - even driving 3 hours to get you food from your favorite place even if you were passed out by the time he’d gotten home. But the thing was, no matter how far he drove or what he went out and got you, nothing satisfied you, nothing was enough and it’d been that way since he’d gotten home for the last trimester.

You’re already in the worst possible mood when he gets home from the grocery store where you’d sent him out for all sorts of the junk. “Can you please not slam the door like that,” you sigh, standing up from the couch. He pauses like he’s going to say something but shakes his head and smiles, “Of course baby.” Even that annoys you. He’s too nice and it’s so frustrating at times.

You waddle your way into the kitchen where he’s emptying the bags and putting things away. “You got the red ones?” You huff, referring to the bag of chips you know you sent him for. He stops grabbing things out of the bags and eyes you cautiously. “Yeah,” he says a bit defensively, “You said you wanted those.” And because you’re two weeks over 9 months pregnant, moody, emotional, and achy, “Yes but the red ones give me heartburn and you should have known i’d change my mind or at least bought both just in case.”

“Right, sorry babe, i’ll go out and get you one of every kind once i’m done putting all this away,” there’s no sarcastic tone or any sign of him joking and you just sort of break out into tears. “Hey, don’t cry, i’ll go out now and get it it’s fine,” he coos, going over to wrap his arms around you. “No, no, it’s fine,” you wipe at your tears, pulling away to look at him. “Are you sure?” He gives a wary look. “Yes, you’ve already bought me all this,” you gesture toward the counter full of various chips, sweets, and ice creams.

“I’m sorry i’m such a mess, I don’t know how you haven’t just left me already,” a few more tears falling down your cheeks. “Think you’re the only one who can put up with me to be fair and I don’t even have the excuse of having a human being inside of me,” he chuckles, quick to wipe at your tears with his sleeve and pecking your nose for good measure.

“I swear if you’re going to the store i’m going to start crying again,” you say as he pulls away, grabbing for the car keys. “I have to get something and if I happen to buy every bag of chips they have then that has nothing to do with you,” he shrugs with a small grin. “You’re too good to me Hemmings,” your crying mood now replaced with that of hunger as you take a spoonful of the the ice cream tub Luke had just bought.

“I know mum wants you out already but i’m going to need you to wait a bit longer while daddy goes to the store,” he rubs at your stomach then places a kiss to your ice cream flavored lips before he’s off on more of your ridiculous quests.

A Joe Sugg one where you're friends with benefits and you want more but Joe doesn't?

**Interesting, I shall try my best :)** 

My evenings had become Joe time. Every evening I would go round to Joes and wen Caspar went out we would do the dirty. 
I was loving it. There were no strings attached and it was easy. 
A few months back Joe and I decided it would be too weird to date each other as I was Zoe’s best friend so we decided to become friends with benefits. No string attached, just simply hooking up when one of us needed it. 
It seemed like the perfect plan. 
Until Joe asked me to go to the Godzilla Premier with him, he looked amazing and my tummy couldn’t help but let all those butterflies fly free. 
That night I stayed at Joe’s and of course, did the deed. 
The next morning Caspar had a meeting to go to, so Joe and I decided to go to The Breakfast Club for some pancakes. 
After being sat down I decided to ask him a rather big question 
“So I’ve been thinking. Since we spend majority of our time together, and our arrangement, how about we just get together. Properly?” He looked at me rather bewildered.
“I thought we both wanted this casual, like super casual?” He stopped eating and his focus was fully on me.
“Well I mean we do couple things, have breakfast together, you took me to a premier, we go shopping together, get little gift for each other. And most importantly sleep together” I took a sip of my drink because I started to feel sick. 
“I like what we have now. No strings. Or are there strings forming?” He took a sip of his drink 
“I think there are strings starting to appear. I’m having fun and I know you are to so why don’t we just make it public?” I didn’t understand why he didn’t want to. We were practically in a relationship anyway.
“Because I don’t want anything serious, this is fine for me. I’m happy like this, please don’t make it something bigger than it is, we’re fuck buddies its just what happens” He didn’t say it in an aggressive tone, but I felt my stomach drop. 
“Alright” I said then began finishing my food. “Actually you know what, i’ve gotta go otherwise I’m going to be late for work” I got up and left before he could say anything. 
When I got to work I checked my phone 
Please don’t be mad, I love what we have going on it’s so simple. I just don’t want a full time girlfriend. x’
What the hell was I supposed to say to that? 
I didn’t want to say anything awful so I left it for a few hours, turned my phone off and got on with my work. 
At Lunch when I turned my phone on I had a stupid amount of messages from Joe. 
‘Don’t be like this x’
I still want to see you x’
'Please can we keep this going, I don’t want to lose you x’
'What we have is perfect x’
The list goes on. He was acting like a boyfriend right? I text him back saying i’ll go past his on the way home and we can talk. The rest of the day was a nightmare, I couldn’t concentrate on anything so finally my boss just said I could go early. 
I went to Joe’s and used the key under the plant pot to get it. 
“Joe” I called out 
“I’m upstairs" 
I walked up the stairs and could smell a beautiful, relaxing aroma. He’d lit candles from half way up the stairs to his room. Lots and lots of candles. 
"What’s this?" 
"Well I know today must have been hard since I sent those texts and I wanted you to relax. I’ve decided I’m going to think about what you said. I’m not 100% on the idea but I don’t want to be horrible and not take your feelings into consideration” He smiled trying to be considerate and that was all I really wanted. If I plant the idea then the rest will follow. 
“Thank you” I hugged him and gently kissed his cheek “But I’m not staying tonight, this is your punishment for making me feel awful this morning” I smirked and began to walk to the door 
“Well thats not fair” He sulked 
“Thats entirely fair!” I called as I walked down the stairs and out the door. 
This could be a fun little game we’ve started

Gossip

The townfolk of Storybrooke apparently have nothing better to do than to gossip like high-schoolers. Robin overhears. 

a/n: posting this regardless of being rushed and un-edited. contains some 3x18 spoilers. 

————————————————————————————–

Regina and Robin were having a conversation. From where she was sitting - it looked to Tinkerbell like the conversation was light hearted, and fun. Like they were teasing one another and thoroughly enjoying the attention from the other. It made her smile… they’d finally found each other… and it was clear to anybody - even those who knew nothing of the spell revealing them to be soul-mates/true-loves whatever you wanted to call it - that they belonged together.

‘So, what uh- what do you know about that?’

Tinkerbell was snapped out of her trance of watching them and turned her attention to David.

'What?’ she asked.

'You’ve been watching them quite intensely for the past fifteen minutes.’ Snow chimed in. 'And come to think of it - you and Regina have been rather close recently… you must know of whatever is going on between them.’

'Between who?’ she tried playing innocent.

'Regina and Robin.’ David said.

'Oh… right… yes.’ She said.

'So…?’ Snow asked.

'What?’ She asked - still playing the part of innocent.

'So… what’s going on?’

Her resolve broke and she grinned. 'They’re perfect for each other, don’t you think?’

Snow frowned. 'I don’t know… Regina and Robin? I don’t see it working… not long term.’

'Oh but you’re so wrong. They’re made for each other.’

'I’m going to have to disagree with you there.’ David said. 'Regina is the evil queen - she had Robin hunted for years. She is everything he stands against.’

'No.’ Tinkerbell shook her head. 'They are actually made for each other.’

Snow frowned. 'What aren’t you saying?’

Tinkerbell looked back over to the pair - sure enough they still only had eyes for each other - so she was safe.

'You cannot tell anyone.’ She said. 'But… years ago - before the curse, Regina came to me, looking for help and so… I helped her track down her true-love. The man she’s supposed to be with.’

'And…?“ Snow asked.

'It was the man with the lion tattoo.’ She grinned.

Snow and David exchanged a glance. 'Robin has a lion tattoo… on his wrist.’ David said.

Tinkerbell nodded enthusiastically. 'True love, soul mates… whatever you want to call it.’

'Regina… and… Robin?’ Snow asked.

Tinkerbell nodded. 'Mmhmm.’

'Wow.’

She sighed. 'And aren’t they perfect together - I’m so happy they finally found each other.’

Fanart Monday!

Fanart of the week by @boblovesexplosions


I lost count of how many of these I’ve made so far <3

You guys keep being awesome and sending super cute fanarts, so I can’t really do anything about it!! Jeez >u<

Ok I’d like to say something: I’ve decided that I won’t post anything that’s not fanart in here. Because I keep receiving pictures and memes of things that are not realy Underfell or Undertale related at all, and I really dunno what to do with those; I am grateful for the nice thougths, but those kind of things don’t really belong in “fanart” monday. Sorry. I still appreciate them, though.

With that being said, I’ll start <3

Can you do a rucas one shot where riley gets upset bc other girls keep flirting with lucas but he's oblivious then riley says something like "how can you not notice?" and lucas' reply was "bc you're the only girl i notice." LOVE U HEHE

Forgive me but this is a Suite Life On Deck Bailey and Cody reference is it not?? I could be wrong… ANYWAY!! I bet this isn’t what you had in mind at all but I wanted to do something different.. I HOPE YOU LIKE IT! :)

:) :) :) :)

A grown up and married version of Riley Matthews - now Riley Friar and Lucas, find themselves back in the same high school they attended and shared many couple milestones as well as other life milestones at.

Principal Cory Matthews had invited his family members to speak at the schools Career Week held in the gym. Veterinarian Lucas and published author Riley made perfect candidates to help inspire the youth on their future paths in life.

Riley is the first of the pair to speak, she gives a beautifully worded account of how this very fair was the one that set her on her own career path she continues to walk down today and still just as sweet as the sixteen year old girl that sat on the opposite side of this conversation many years ago, Riley reminds everyone that it doesn’t matter what you do as long as you’re happy.

Lucas is next to speak, dressed in his doctors coat for dramatic flare he captivates the audience with his secret weapon - a small puppy. Riley watches from the side of the stage proud of her husband and the passion in his speech as he talks about the job he loves, the same sort of passion he had back in middle school when he shared his desire to become a veterinarian in the library. The same passion that to this day gives Riley butterflies in her stomach.
