just making this post because of reasons

anonymous asked:

i also have a question about emoji spells!! every one i see is always symmetrical like 😊💓🍓💸🍓💓😊 is there a specific reason for that or just because it looks nicer?

i’ve always felt symmetry added to it, but it does look nice. 

personally, unless i’m having one concept replace another, like love replacing a broken heart, etc, i have things symmetrical. but that example i would have going one direction to the other like reading a comic book

imm gonna make a little emoji spell post in a bit actually

Hello! (I really hope this gets posted because it’s very, very important.) I just wanted to say to fellow HM/SoS/RF fans that if you’re a fan of a PoC character, please make sure to never use or support white-washed art for any reason because it sends a very hurtful, hateful, and negative message to PoC fans and the PoC characters we love. (Especially PoC with brown and dark brown skin.)

(Also, there’s a Youtube video by BuzzFeedVideo called: What Dark-Skinned People Will Never Tell You, and it’s very touching, emotional, and wonderful. It’s short too, I'd recommend giving it a look!)

Thanks for reading! And I hope everyone has a wonderful day/week!

You definitely always have to ask the other person to be in a QPR, because both partners seeing it as one is the only thing that makes a relationship a QPR. QPRs are unsusual, and not all people know about them or are even capable of being in one, so discussing what that even is and what it means to each partner is essential to forming one. Also a matter of consent of how you refer to someone, in your head and in front of other people. [cont. 1 of 3]

[2 of 3] You can also not be in a normative-bestfriend-ship or a monogamous-romantic-and-sexual-relationship if the other person doesn’t want to define things like that. Except these two kinds of relationship have normativity on their side, so you can sometimes implicitly end up in one/have the other person assume it is one, through a certain number of interactions of a certain kind.

[3 of 3] If you learn that the person you thought was your bestfriend, sees you as a benevolent-aquaintance-who-they-spend-a-lot-of-time-with-because-geography, accept that it never was a bestfriendship. If you find the person you thought you were dating thinks of you as a sortof-bestfriend-who-probably-has-a-crush-on-them-and-kissed-them-once, stop calling it romance. If you find out that someone you don’t care about much sees you as a bestfriend or datefriend, tell them you don’t consent.

Did they really block you? perfectdagger(.)tumblr(.)com/tagged/i%27m-literally-blocking-everyone-who-reblogged-the-post-%C2%A0from-the-people-who-added-the-liam-thing Idk why they get mad when someone calls them out of their hypocrisy it's a larry post but that is the problem the fact that they think it just relate to harry because louis has some part (since he didn't wrote all the song but a tiny part with the other 3 ppl and Liam) Idk I like larry but how they make EVERYTHING about larry is 🙄

I don’t know or care. I didn’t support that Project No Control bullshit for this very reason. People who erase Liam (or Zayn or Niall or Harry or Louis) from anything are not worth my time.

Jieun’s Personality + theory on her purpose

So there’s a lot of buzz surrounding Jieun, her personality, and her ultimate fate after chapter 18. In terms of her potential death, it’s a huge probability she won’t live, there’s really no reason for her to stay alive much longer. Now what’s always interested me is how much of chapter 15 and 16 were dedicated to her background and even her own thoughts and internal dialogue. I don’t think Jieun will just be another unfortunate victim of Sangwoo.

A good portion of this post is going to be dedicated to taking a better look at Jieun’s personality in relation to Sangwoo, I won’t go into her treatment of Bum because that’s been hashed out tons of times by now. So there’s Sangwoo’s infamous speech about how she’s shallow and only into appearances, and while it was very intense and elaborate, I have plenty of reason to believe that he was wrong and only spoke so much to make a half assed justification for killing her. Let’s look at some parts of his dialogue:

So Sangwoo is the type of person to use any excuse to kill anyone, it doesn’t matter what they do. The first girl he killed because he felt she challenged his ego, Sangwoo said he killed the old man because he stuck his dick in his face, and now Jieun is about to die because he says she doesn’t deserve anyone for cursing people who don’t look good. It doesn’t matter to Sangwoo whether or not he’s wrong but, he’s kind of wrong.

This is our introduction to Jieun, the first impression of her is that she seems to be bored with being told she’s hot, it’s a reasonable assumption that she’s frequently told that she’s beautiful. She’s the kind of person that didn’t put much effort into anything because she’s never had to try. Things are handed to her for being so pretty, and it’s actually gotten old for her at this point

But then here she is, putting effort into her appearance, getting out of her way and actually trying to look good for Sangwoo. He is clearly special to her just by this small action. Although initially she wasn’t interested in him.

Here is more insight into Jieun’s mind and how she used to perceive Sangwoo, she wasn’t interested in his appearance, but they began to hang out more and she was swept away by the persona he created. When they were singing their duet, there was a montage of moments between them that she was reflecting on. It’s very clear she’s developed feelings for him, not based solely off of his looks, but because of how he treated her as well. Jieun gets flustered when Sangwoo says she’s pretty, not because of the compliment of being told she’s pretty, but because it’s coming from him. 

Now given that Jieun has had a decent amount of time dedicated to her personality, thoughts, and even some development, what does this mean for her purpose in the story? She’s been given more attention than Sangwoo’s other murder victims, it would be a waste if she was just killed and never heard from again. 

My personal belief is that Jieun will become a martyr of sorts, she has the ability to be the catalyst for Sangwoo being caught. Jieun is within his social circle, and Sangwoo was the last person she was in contact with. It wouldn’t take too much work to connect the two together (maybe her going missing would even bring back Seungbae into the plot). And if she did become the key to Sangwoo’s downfall, then that would almost be as satisfying as when she punched Sangwoo in the eye.

cvvtx  asked:

Hi! This is really random but I bumped into one of your posts and I've ALWAYS been interested in witchcraft since I was really young. Recently I keep thinking about it and stuff but idk where to begin. I was wondering if you could tell me?:)

Sure, I’ll try my best! I do have a beginner tag where you can find this original post, but I’m going to copy and paste the majority of it for the purpose of this ask.

“I’m going to start off with three things you should consider before deciding to be a witch. These are not necessary, but are suggestions.

One - What is your primary goal or what you want to achieve from becoming a witch? If you are just interested in it for the aesthetic, or because you think it will make you look cool, I would reconsider the reason behind your interest. This isn’t to say that people haven’t come to witchcraft this way and have been successful, but it may take you longer to grow into. Something else to consider is that having this identity can be dangerous depending on your location and situation. Those that dress as witches for the aesthetic are probably not trying to be harmful, but can sometimes cause a false sense of belonging to those that are practicing witches. (I asked a girl once if she was a witch because she wore a pentacle and I was looking for a local friend and she laughed at me.) Being a witch is often lonely and kept as a personal identification.

Two - Witchcraft can be happy and sunshine and rainbows, but at it’s base it is not something to laugh about. Witchcraft is about using the world around you and bending it to your will. That is a huge responsibility to have on your shoulders, as what you do can often affect others around you, whether you mean it or not. You have to be able to accept that witchcraft means work, responsibility and dedication. It is not a toy.

Three - Not everything you see is up for grabs when it comes to magical practices. There is (yes, there is) such a thing as Cultural Appropriation and it is a harmful thing to spread and practice. I’ll leave you more information on this later, but the point is that not all practices and paths are open for you to explore. You need to be able to look at everything objectively and do research and ask questions. Where does this practice come from? Who started it? What culture is it from? More often than not, when you engage in these types of practices, you are not even getting the original information. Why would you want to so something that is just a half-assed version? It’s disrespectful and harmful to the actual, living people of color (POC) that still practice the original forms of magic or ideology that so easily gets passed off as “ancient and mystical” when it is really just a white-washed version.

Some other tidbits to keep in mind.

Magic is not black and/or white. It is a neutral force that you bend to your intentions. Calling “good” magic white, and “bad” magic black only propagates racial inequality and the subliminal message that POC are evil.

You don’t have to be Wiccan to be a witch. Wicca is a religion/cult/practice where members worship the god and goddess, revere nature and often use magic in order to supplement worship. They follow The Rede and the Three-Fold Law. Most of what you will see on Tumblr is actually Neo-Wicca, which does not require a practitioner to be initiated into a group by way of a Priestess or otherwise. Wicca is an initiatory cult. Neo-Wicca is based off of Wiccan teachings, and often allows the practitioner to be solitary.

You can follow a religion (any) or you can not follow a religion. Witchcraft can be viewed as a religion on its own, but generally speaking it is a practice that can be blended with religion or not.

Witchcraft does not equal Satanism - as Satanism has many forms and ideologies it branches to as well, some not even involving magic.

You don’t have to be pagan or worship any deities to be a witch.

You don’t need to be white to be a witch. (I’ve been asked this!!!)

You don’t need to be straight to be a witch.

You don’t need to be able-bodied to be a witch.

You don’t need crystals.

You don’t need fancy tools.

You don’t need to read Tarot.

You don’t need an Ouija board.

You don’t need to communicate with spirits.

You don’t need a familiar.

You don’t have a spirit animal unless you are Native American and studying in a tribe. (Please read this post)

Smudging is also NA, see above. Please refer to it as smoke cleansing.

You can curse.

You can choose not to curse.

You don’t have to practice every day.

You can take extended breaks.

You don’t even have to call yourself a witch! Witch is a gender neutral term, but some feel uncomfortable using it because of its feminine history. You could use Wix, sorcerer(ess), magician, practitioner, cunning man/woman, etc. You don’t even need a title at all.

You don’t need a magical name unless you want one.

I’m sure I’m forgetting something along the way, but the bottom line is that whatever you choose to do, you are valid. All you need is yourself and the drive to learn and practice, whatever that may mean to you. There is no right or wrong way to be a witch, unless you are doing something that is harmful to oppressed cultures and people.”

So sad that SJM accidentally posted this “picture” of Cassian on her Pinterest…obviously it’s not him because: The man in the picture is in a deep state of agony and looks like someone who has just lost his wings. Well! That can’t be Cassian! (No!) Cassian is perfectly fine. He doesn’t even have a reason to be in pain? This is so weird. I mean we all make mistakes it’s okay. Just thought. So random. Haha

Hi everyone! I’ve had this blog for a little over a year now, and it has made such a huge difference! I remember feeling overwhelmed when I made this blog, so I thought I would make a little welcome-to-the-community guide for those of you who are looking to make a study blog of your own.

the basics

  • Why start a study blog (aka studyblr) in the first place? Because you want to be motivated to do better in school, want to find new ideas, or just because you like pretty stationery. There are a ton of good reasons to start one, so go for it!
  • What do I have to do to be a studyblr? Make a blog and follow some other study blogs. That’s pretty much it. There are no GPA requirements, supply lists, or complicated rules. 

how to start a blog

  • You can either start a whole new blog (make a new account), make a side blog, or start posting study tips from your current blog. It all depends on your personal preference and how much you use the blog you have now.
  • Your url is an important part of your blog because it lets people know what you’ll be posting about. Your name + studies is a common url to see, but you can get more creative if you choose!
  • I suggest avoiding tumblr default themes and instead finding one you like from @theme-hunter. If you don’t have any experience with coding, you can pick up the basics you need to install a theme from Youtube. 
  • After you have your blog all set up, make a post introducing yourself. Include a little bit about yourself like your name, grade level, major (if you have one), interests, and tag your favorite blogs so that they can help get the word out about you!

connecting with the community

  • Message/send asks introducing yourself to other blogs. It’s easy and it works, study bloggers are usually really friendly and welcoming!
  • Enter blog of the month or blog awards to get your name out there.
  • Send random asks, just because. It makes people smile!

creating original posts

  • You don’t have to make your own posts, but it helps to get your name out there and it’s nice to be able to share your own study tips.
  • For pictures, try posting your notes, study setup, or favorite supplies. Good lighting and editing with an app like VSCOcam will make them more appealing and get more notes.
  • Making masterposts is my favorite way to create content. Think of any topic that you know about or would like to learn about, and write out a post of resources or tips. 
  • Canva is a great free site for making graphics
  • Tag your posts with relevant tags like #studyblr #studyspo, as well as the urls of different blogs as people will usually reblog posts they have been tagged in. 

making your blog work for you

  • Above all, having a study blog is about improving your study habits.
  • Create a good tagging system so that you can find posts later. It should be simple and easy to remember (this post would go under #masterpost #new studyblr #tips for me).
  • Find a study buddy or group to keep you motivated
  • Reblog only things that you find inspiring, regardless of how you think your blog should look.
  • Start the 100 days of productivity challenge to stay accountable
  • Install a site blocker so that you can log off and focus!

Welcome to the community! I hope that you find it as beneficial as I have, and I look forward to meeting some new faces!

So I really loved the “Bellamy negotiates with Echo” scene for a thousand reasons but one part in particular that stood out was the face Bob makes right before he says, “I wasn’t done talking.”

Like, his expression shows he’s bracing for a hit. He knows he’s in for it once he grabs Echo, he knows he’s just put his life in danger. And I love this not because, as usual, he’s putting his life on the line or throwing himself in front of the metaphorical bullet for his people, but because this moment - this whole SCENE - makes it clear that Bellamy’s ~bravado is an ACT.

It always has been. That bravado is something he puts on as soon as he says “I’ve got this” to Kane and you can SEE the mask fall into place. Because this is an act, yes- this isn’t who Bellamy really is - but it’s an act that’s so familiar to him, so second nature that it forms a core part of who he is. The Bravado act defined who he was on the ark, and when he first came down to the ground, and now he draws on it when he needs to buy time with Echo.

So basically, this scene is a masterclass by Bob, but also, I don’t think we appreciate enough how far Bellamy has come emotionally. The fact that it felt like a change for Bellamy to flip this switch is a testament to how much more open and honest Bellamy has allowed himself to become since s1. Growth that, I think, is spurred in part by his love for his friends but also, in large part, due to his relationship with Clarke.

Theory: Is Intelligence Seen as Villainous?

Out of all the fandoms and characters I love, I have only 2 pop vinyl figures on my shelf. One is of my snow cuddle bunny, Loki:

The other is of the Dark Lord Voldemort - technically, the future version of this guy.

The third purchase I was going to make was, obviously, a figure for this little precious baby (the figurine I wanted was out of stock. Sigh):

I’ve long reached the conclusion that I have a type: smart, dangerous, handsome and possibly with a tortured past as a bonus.

But the fact that I’m a bit of a sapiophile is really no surprise to me. I’ve known this for years - just like I’ve known that the reason why I love Tony Stark so much is because he is the hero whose superpower is his intelligence.

The point of this post is a realization I had today. We all know that the first two hotties of the list are canonically villains, and Tony is obviously not. But my mind made a bit of an unpleasant connection there, and I was reminded of the vilification of Tony.

A question popped into my mind: Could intelligence be seen as a feature more suitable to a villain than a hero?

The obvious answer would be no, right? I mean there are plenty of heroes who are intelligent. Seems like a bit of a stretch. 

And yet…

Exhibit 1. Thor 

Thor is not an idiot by any means, but he’s not the sharpest tool in the shed either. There’s a reason why his weapon of choice is a hammer. In some ways, he is very much of a “blunt instrument”. 

His main qualities would probably be his courage and his desire to protect his friends and loved ones. His main flaws, his vanity and recklessness. Intelligence… Not that much of a factor. Nuff said.

By comparison, Loki is known to be the clever one, the one with all the “tricks”. He’s not only more cunning but his brother, but also has an ability to actually strategize. He is the guy who repeatedly tries to make his brother see reason, although he ultimately fails. 

He has also been apparently hoodwinking people for years. We can assume that he occupied the throne of Asgard during TDW, and he’s been there ever since, with everyone completely unaware. Loki’d.

I want to prove someone wrong.

Hi guys! So someone recently told me my art is on Instagram! Which is weird! Because I definitely don’t remember putting it up there or being asked if it was ok to put up. So I just wanted to be clear: please don’t repost my art without permission. Don’t give other people permission to repost it. 

Stumbling upon your work on another person’s account is a terrible feeling. 

I’m glad my art makes you happy but that’s not a reason to screenshot it and post it on your own account. Not cool. 

I made an instagram account and asked a few of them to take my stuff down but there is a lot of art on here and here that I know hasn’t been run by the original artists.  

“But i’m giving the artist credit! That makes it ok!’

No.  If the artist hasn’t given you consent to post their work, it’s not ok.

It’s possible to ship without forcing your ship on others.

It’s possible for non-shippers to respectfully interact with shippers.

It’s possible to love all the characters and actors.

It’s possible to respect when others don’t love a character/actor for whatever reason.

It’s possible to just pass by an opinion/post you don’t like on someone else’s blog without giving them shit for it.

It’s possible to stop making assumptions about everyone who loves a certain ship just because there are a few that have left a bad taste in your mouth.

It’s possible to accept that your ship isn’t for everyone, and that’s okay.

It’s possible to show support and love for your friends without pitting blogs against each other.

I’m sure that I have unintentionally hurt someone at some point while running this blog, and I’m sorry for that. But I do try to think about my words and actions beforehand. I’ll never be completely successful, because I’m only human, but I do my best to understand and respect people, even when (especially when) we don’t have the same opinions. Telling someone how they get to enjoy the show or express their feelings about the show is bullshit. I like to think there’s room for everyone.

And here’s the hard part: It starts with you. Get out of the mindset of “As long as they respect me, I’ll respect them.” Be the one who initiates it. Give your respect until they lose it. Don’t withhold it until they earn it.

The Festival Struggle

A long time ago I made a forum post on Flight Rising. It was about how frustrated I was losing over and over again in the festivals. 

I remember always being bitter because I never knew what it was I did wrong. I always wanted to desperately be a part of a bigger aspect of the site.
 
Today I finally won, a few days after my birthday with an older submission and I I’m so thankful, although I knew there were probably a lot of entries that deserved to win that just didn’t make it.

It’s a bit stressful because I like seeing people happy and the reason I entered was because I really wanted to contribute to the site, make something everyone could get.

With this is mind, artists who are struggling I want you to remember that not getting chosen for a festival isn’t a failure or an indication that your art isn’t good enough.

I think most artists find it hard not to compare their work to a winning entry and feel as if they’re not good enough or that their art doesn’t suit the style of the site. 

Some users get a little mad sometimes because an entry they like doesn’t win too. 

But truthfully, even if you don’t win your should be proud of your work, who you are and the courage you had to enter it. Sometimes even if you do win, you still don’t know if people really are happy with it too. 

I can tell you I worry that there’s probably an entry people wanted more then mine, since what I entered is also a skin and they aren’t as popular. Or maybe it’s to saturated, or perhaps it just doesn’t suit the style people like. But it’s okay because eve if one person like’s it? I’m thankful, and I hope all of you artists who didn’t win keep on trucking. 

I didn’t think I’d ever win, I mostly gave up. Don’t let all those questions bring you down, do what you do best.

Here’s almost every I made for contests. Each entry takes 7 to 10 hours, I’m terribly slow!

Plague



Earth

Sorry, I didn’t have a plain dragon to try it on. This ridge accent was my first ever accent made for a festival!

Shadow


Wind


Water


Modeled on the dragon, just the tentacles are my accent!

Nature



Lightning



Arcane


After all these different accents and skins, here’s the won that finally won.



I’m not going to tell you to give up or to try harder, I’m not gonna say I even deserved to win.

But rather that what you create and how gorgeous it is isn’t defined by just the world, it’s also you, making something only you could make.

This is pretty long for something that probably wont get many notes or views. I just wanted someone to see this and stop being so hard on themselves, or on other artists. 

Edit: Oh wow, thank you all so much for your replies, likes and reblogs. 

Y’all really gonna satanize Mon-El because he made a mistake wanting to save Kara and then telling her how he feels about her AFTER KARA LITERALLY ASKING HIM WHETHER HE LIKES HER OR NOT. And even after telling her, he accepted she doesn’t like him back so he just left… like what would you expect him to do??? 

But if it was anyone else doing, it would be alright and iconique for them to try to save Kara and I wouldn’t be seeing one (1) single post about this, right? And don’t even try to tell me it’s not about this, because I just saw some nasty posts literally tryna make him the devil incarnate because of these reasons.

PS: Drink some water to help you flush the extra sodium from your body. Y’all need it.

the russian name explanation post makes me think about how after yuuri starts calling him vitya, yuuri accidentally called him viktor because of some reasons (like referring viktor as viktor all those year idolizing the guy) complete with a straight face because yuuri is tired after practise and viktor just cries “YUURI WHAT DID I DO WRONG DONT BREAK UP WITH ME”

Okay so I’m having to post this again because I was going through my page and for some reason this piece got deleted! Dunno how! Anyway, there’s a part two to this and it just doesn’t make sense without the first!

***

Y/N loves flying out to see Harry. She loves hearing the enthusiasm in his voice when she tells him her vacation’s been approved at work. She loves when Harry picks her up from airports, holding up the cutest handmade sign that reads ‘Y/N!!(:’. Especially because he draws happy faces, or hearts, or loads of x’s, and goes overboard with exclamation points sometimes. She loves hearing Harry go on and on about the town(or city) he’s in at the time. Loves it when he talks about the locations that are popular, as if he really is all familiar, when in reality he’s only just gotten there himself a day prior and hadn’t even heard of the place before then. It makes her think that maybe he lays awake at night, before her arrival, studying these places, just so he can tell her all about them. She loves going out to sight see with him, wonderful spots she’s never even dreamt of visiting. She really loves hanging out with the boys and the crew, and engaging with fans when they come up to Harry, or Liam, or Louis, or Niall. More than anything though, she loves spending time with Harry.

This time it’s different though, and if she’s being honest, she’s feeling a tad nervous. Well, that might be an understatement.

Harry’s quite excited though. It’s been a while since he’s seen his best friend. Sure, he’s constantly phoning her, or messaging her, but it’s not the same. So when he sees her with her luggage, the escalator moving too slow for his liking, he smiles wide in adoration. Definitely not the same.

But here he is, his hair short and slicked messily to the side. With a sign that reads 'Y/N ♡ (:’, just like
she has missed. And as soon as she steps off the escalator, she drops her bags with a thud and Harry’s striding towards her, arms open.

“Missed you, kitten.” He smiles into her hair, inhaling the refreshing yet familiar scent of vanilla.

It’s quite easy for Harry to pick her up and spin her then, and she gives a small squeak, but laughs anyway.

“Been missing you since you left, you big movie star, you.”

And her voice is music to his ears, can never get enough. It’s why their conversations always go into the wee hours of the morning.

Harry sets her back down, gently, pressing a kiss to the top of her head. “M'still the same ole lad that liked to work at a bakery.” Harry never really does change. Always been so humble. “Hey! Did y'know-”

“That you used to work at a bakery!” Y/N joins in, and they finish the sentence together. “I might’ve heard something about that, yes.”

They both chuckle before Harry takes her suitcase handle in his hand, “lemme help you with these, love.”

“How was the trip?” Harry questions, leading the way out.

Y/N hasn’t really known anything but quiet airports when it comes to visiting Harry. Always been best to arrive at night so the possibilities of getting swarmed are to a minimum.

“Slept a lot. Got a bit of work done-”

“You never really understood what a vacation was,” Harry chuckles. And it’s quite true. She can never really not do anything, and in that aspect, Harry and Y/N are much alike. But that’s why she likes vacationing with Harry, he’s able to distract her and really help her relax.

“That’s why m'here, darlin’.” She retorts, “anyway. It was sort of weird, too. Couple of people came up to me, no idea who they were, and asked about ya.”

Harry raises an eyebrow at this.

“Mhm-” she hums. By this time, he’s loading her belongings into the back of a rental, before opening the passenger door for her, “one guy even asked for a picture with me.”

Harry makes his way around the front of the car, jumping so into the driver’s seat.

“S'now y'think you’re all high an’ mighty?” He teases, giving her a smirk and putting the car in drive.

“Don’t worry, you’ll always be my number one,” Y/N giggles, patting his hand set on the arm rest.

Harry nods and laughs in amusement, “m'just glad you’re here, poppet. M'excited for you to meet everyone.”

“Me too,” she answers, unsure.

And if it were anyone else, she might’ve gotten away with that, but it’s Harry, and Harry knows her too well, so he takes her hand in his and gently squeezes it, smiling a reassuring smile “they’re gonna love ya’.”

And just like she predicted, Harry’s making sure to note places he’s either read about or has been to on their way to the hotel. The pub he and his cast mates went to on a day off, restaurant they celebrated a crew member’s birthday, park he likes to take a run through.

But Y/N still can’t help the uneasiness that creeps back up, because when she visited Harry on tours, she knew mostly everyone. Even when Harry wasn’t around because he was rehearsing, or in wardrobe, or performing, she still had Lou and Lux, sometimes Gemma and Meredith. But now, she’s not going to know anyone but Harry, and that’s a little scary when she thinks about it. Who is she going to talk to when Harry’s on set. She really doesn’t want to come off as a loner. And she’s naturally super shy, so she doesn’t want his cast ages to think she’s stuck up either.

“Here we are,” Harry’s voice cuts through her thoughts, “you’ll be sleeping in the room next to mine. S'got a door that connects 'em, so I’ll be a step away.”

Harry’s always been so considerate with her, to the point where it feels like she’s being babied. But she doesn’t mind, cos he tells her he’s just being cautious. Wouldn’t want anything to happen to her, and she knows, he’s always been real protective.

“S'that mean I can come over to yours?” Y/N doesn’t mean to sound like a child. Usually the first night in a foreign city she spends in Harry’s room. They’ll be watching movies or just talking until Y/N is more at ease, and eventually he’ll get her to sleep. She always tells him she’ll try her best not to bother him, but she can’t think of anything better than cuddling up to Harry. And Harry assures her he doesn’t mind. Not at all. He’s always said he sleeps much better when he’s got someone to cuddle.

“Door’s gonna be wide open-” he smiles, pushing his floor number button with his thumb once inside the lift, “-figuratively, o'course.”

Y/N smiles at him, her way of saying 'thank you’, before she yawns and rubs at her eyes.

When the lift comes to a halt, Harry helps a now very sleepy Y/N out, leading the way with the palm of his hand on her back. Times likes these he’s got to make sure his steps are shorter, wouldn’t want to hurry her up. He slides the keycard and opens her suite door, setting her belongings down next to the TV stand.

“Up you go,” he whispers now, noticing how droopy her eyes have gotten.

He pulls the covers back, letting her slip under before he’s taking off her sneakers and settling her into bed. The upside in having her arrive at night is that she always wears bed time clothes to ensure she’s comfortable.

“I’ll make sure to wake you for brekkie. G'nite, kitten.”

With a light kiss to her temple, Harry makes his way next door into his own room. A room that feels just a little empty now for some reason. And Harry stands here in the dark, a feeling of relief washing over him as he runs his fingers through his hair. He slips off his boots, then his shirt, and lastly his pants before deciding on a warm shower, excited that tomorrow, Harry will finally be able to introduce to everyone the girl he’s been going on about for a while now.

Harry wakes up to a slight stream of light coming in through the curtains, a hand instinctively feeling the spot next to him, in hopes that it wouldn’t be empty, but when he feels nothing but cool sheets, he can’t ignore the feeling of disappointment in the pit of his stomach.

One thing Harry always counted on is Y/N’s body next to him. Doesn’t matter whether she’s cuddled up to him, arm flung across his torso and face buried in his neck, or if she’s a ball of limbs sleeping inches away from him, hair laid messily against white sheets. He finds comfort in the way she breathes, her hands mindlessly reaching over to him to touch him, any part of him. That’s why she’s his favourite to cuddle. Let’s him move her around any which way he wants, and only nuzzles into him closer. When it’s hot, she settles for Harry’s arm around and under her neck, slung lazy on her shoulder, her head on his chest. When it’s cold, she lets him spoon her, his torso warm against her back, arms locked around her waist and their legs tangled. Sometimes he rubs her tummy, too. Knows she likes it when he rubs her tummy. It’s why he prefers it when it’s cold.

“Morning sunshine!” And just like that, a smile creeps over him as he looks over at Y/N make her way to the edge of his bed laying out his clothes on top, “completely knocked out last night. Woke up real early! I’ve picked out your outfit! Now let’s get going before you’re late!”

Y/N’s not sure what got into her. The sudden confidence seems to have her over excited now, giddy and in a hurry to get to Harry’s work.

“Woah! Whas’ gotten into yeh?”

Y/N knows the drill the second Harry sits up and reaches for the cover, so she turns around and stares at the wall so he can change.

She shrugs, “figured I should make the most of it. S'not everyday I get to hang out with famous people!”

“Ayeeee! S'not nice!” Harry would be offended if he had an ego, but it really only reminds him that Y/N doesn’t care that he’s Harry Styles.

“M'joking!” She turns around after hearing the sound of a zipper being pulled up.

Harry gives her a playful glare before sliding his shirt over his head and his arms, tugging at the bottom and stretching it down. He looks at her through the bathroom mirror, talking to her about the people he’s been spending time with as he washes his face and brushes his teeth.

Minutes later, they’re out for breakfast before heading to set.

***

Y/N’s having a grand time. She honestly doesn’t know why she was so worried. Everyone’s been so lovely to her. She was timid at first yeah, practically clinging to Harry when they arrived. But when he was taken to get into costume and she was left alone, a few of his cast mates approach her, making small talk before excusing themselves. She’s observing, watching everyone scrambling around to their positions when one of the crew ladies offers her a donut, and she doesn’t want to be rude and not take one, so she does, and boy is she glad she did. Because at that moment, a guy clad in a soldier costume, his face covered with what she’s assuming is mud, reaches for the last glazed just when she’s about to grab it.

He apologises and hands it over to her, claiming he likes the chocolate ones better anyway. He politely introduces himself, jokingly tipping his imaginary hat. Fionn is his name, and she remembers him from a few of the first leaked pictures of Harry on the set. He asks her name, and when she tells him, he hmm’s knowingly and says “so you’re the famous Y/N” before taking another bite of his donut.

Y/N’s not sure how long they’ve been talking for, all she knows is that her face is starting to hurt from so much smiling. The sound of a train whistle brings her back, and she looks up to see Harry looking back at them, a look on his face that she can’t make out. She waves at him, a huge smile on her face because she’s finally here, looking at her very handsome best friend in action, and he doesn’t wave back, rather keeps his stare stern before tucking his body back into the locomotive, causing her smile to fade.

Phichit and Chris would be awesome BFFS

And like, they wouldn’t become BFFS just because of Viktor and Yuuri. There are plenty more other reasons.

  • They share beauty and fashion tips.
  • They always hang out whenever they’re at the same competition. They’re coaches come along sometimes too (just to make sure they don’t get into too much trouble).
  • They watch each other’s skating programs and give comments or critiques.
  • Chris would share stories of when he was Phichit’s age, and sometimes gives advice on growing older
  • Whenever they travel they text each other for food/sightseeing recommendations
  • They’d be each other’s tour guides when they visit each other’s countries.
  • They discuss/debate about musicals, A LOT
  • They sang a duet together, once in a karaoke bar with other skaters
  • Phichit likes to try on Chris’ glasses
  • Phichit gets really nervous meeting Chris’ cat, mostly for the safety of his hamsters.
  • They pick up on Yuuri and Viktor’s moods/behavior a lot quicker than anyone else
  • PHICHIT AND CHRIS DANCING TOGETHER AT THE BANQUET(Like, nothing romantic, they get down and dirty on the dance floor trying to one up each other’s moves to some rock music)
