Kaz leaned back. “What’s the easiest way to steal a man’s wallet?” “Knife to the throat?” asked Inej. “Gun to the back?” said Jesper. “Poison in his cup?” suggested Nina. “You’re all horrible,” said Matthias.
I’m loving the fact that the YOI and HQ fandom are so hyped right now, like on one end we have Yuri freaking confessing his love for Victor on national television & then on the other spectrum, we have the big reveal on why Oikawa bought glasses. You wanna know what’s so beautiful about this though? Two of my favorite characters are showing so much development. Yuri coming to terms with the aspect of love and Oikawa coming to terms with his volleyball career. It really can’t get better than this!!
So I just saw someone say you shouldn’t tell an author if there was something in their fic that didn’t make sense to you because that’s the way the author wants and it’s like,

It’s next to impossible to get a beta. It’s even more impossible to get a beta who is above or at your level and is willing to actually help you rewrite things instead of just saying ‘yeah that looks good! You just missed a comma here!’ So authors aren’t necessarily posting things as-is because that’s how they want it, but because when you read your own story fifteen times you just begin to fail to see the errors. Authors also tend to forget they know things the audience doesn’t and leave out things they should have included, and the same for authors who feel they have to overexplain.
I mean if you’re just writing for funsies and because you have two minutes to rub together, by all means. Say you don’t really want anything remarked on. But if you plan to be a writer or plan on continuing to write in general, any criticism is very rare and ignoring it isn’t going to teach you anything.

When Molly learns she’s pregnant, Sherlock’s first instinct is to hide it because he’s afraid someone dangerous may find out. One day, he receives a small package, no return address…but the scent is instantly familiar. He’s terrified, but he hastily rips the paper off of the small box. He opens it to find a small, worn toy airplane, and a note:
“Make sure to keep your little one on the ground.”
