if you think this boy can pay attention to you long enough to fuck you without getting distracted by some kind of space adventure you’re an absolute fool
i know you’re all jarking your matter over this guy’s tail but im telling you right now it’s gotta stop. that tail is made for stabbing because of the big ass stinger (ha) at the end of it, not for fucking. even ignoring that, there’s no way this guy’s gonna fuck anyone anytime soon. he’s too busy angsting on other planets in his doofy desert outfit and dealing with the sad reality that his big bro is a melon who betrayed him
knot today. see it’s like you asked to fuck him and i said “not today” but knot because he’s a furry. that’s that good humor the kids love nowadays. but seriously you can’t fuck him, today or any other day
balance would seduce you with the promise of hot and wild sex with a mechanical organism but in the end he would just pickpocket your wallet and leave. you really should’ve seen this coming but i guess you were too busy trying to blow your load
yeah im sure when dr. anton was building this robot whose main purpose was to fight for peace and justice throughout the universe he thought to himself “i better make this thing fuckable just in case anyone wants to get nasty with this big hunk of metal.” open your eyes and face the truth, you can’t fuck this bull
he’s still learning about his own emotions but you think he’s ready to bone? you unbelievable clown
if you tried to fuck hammy she would laugh in your face and walk away. you won’t lose your wallet like balance but you’ll certainly lose your dignity
HER HAIR DANGLES AREN’T TITS. IT’S HAIR. THOSE ARE SPEEDOMETERS. NOT NIPPLES. SHUT UP ABOUT IT ALREADY. aside from that, much like champ she was not built for fucking. “what kind of idiot makes a robot you can’t fuck?” the people in kyuranger apparently
spada will make constant food puns in bed. you might say it’s worth it but i assure you it’s not. once you hear him moan “ohhh shoot your frosting into my creampuff” you will die instantly. do not fuck this man.

Scully glanced up at Mulder with an eyebrow quirked as he patted down his jacket for his car keys.
“Don’t tell me you’ve finished already?” she asked, her words somewhere between dubious and mocking. Mulder smiled at her and nodded once, a smug grin on his face. He’d spent the day powering through the paperwork that he always somehow allowed to build up. Friday evenings were usually reserved for working through it with whatever food he could get delivered and then making his way home via Scully’s place, but tonight was different. He needed to get everything done so he could leave as early as possible. Finishing touches needed to be made.
Imagine #14: Mary getting jealous after she sees someone flirting with you
The springs from the bed stuck into your sides as you tossed over once more. Your stomach was in knots over what happened today. You wanted to believe it was nothing, but in your heart of hearts, you knew it was anything but.
It’s not like it was your fault however. He’s the one who came up to you and complimented your eyes. He’s the one who told you you were beautiful. But it was you who smiled like an idiot and thanked him without thinking. And it was you who saw the glare in Mary’s eyes when she saw how he touched your knee, and licked his lips while looking at you.
The sudden sound of clicking heels on hard cement pulled you from your thoughts. The clicking got louder and faster as time progressed. You started to get a peculiar feeling in your stomach again when the clicking heels arrived right outside you door. With a jingle of keys and a twist of a knob, Mary laid in the middle of your doorway. Her brows were furrowed, and she had a death glare aimed towards you.
She smirked lightly as she quietly closed the door behind her.
“Hello little mouse. We need to talk about how you behaved today. Don’t we ?” She asked in a sultry voice before revealing a belt from behind her back.
“Honestly little mouse, you should know better by now.”
Yesterday I walked into the producer’s office to ask them a few questions. I usually pause in the doorway, let them finish their conversation and check that this is an alright time to bug them. This time they were talking about graveyards and cemeteries, so I walked in and had a seat on the couch.
As I did, one of them said something to the effect of “And then there’s this one,” giving me a look of contemplation. I sat, quietly, a small smile on my face and perhaps a look of “who, me?”
“I can tell,” he continued. “There’s something there…” He said something implying ‘it’s always the quiet ones’ and followed up with “I bet you’re the kind who goes home to someone tied up and gives ‘em a good shock.”
I sat, in silence, and kept smiling. I protested once he suggested that I rub salt in wounds (the other producer began chiming in and she suggested alcohol).
I'm thinking about going natural 😊 , do you have any tips ?
Stop straightening your hair, start deep conditioning, you can make them at home. One good one is a mixture of 1 banana, olive oil, honey, and coconut oil. You can also just blend avocado and coconut oil and apply that for an hour. Deep condition 2 times a week. Find products that moisturize, for example shea moisture curl and style milk is really good, kinky curly knot today is a good leave in as well. Trim all your dead ends to start off fresh, and just be patient , hair takes time to repair its self but its not impossible! Good luck babe hopefully this helped a little
After two months absence due to my shoulder I got a lot of positive words from bith my boss and teacher. That is all fine and dandy and it really stroked my ego in a good way. But what use do all the nice words have, when I’m still in unbearable pain during work?
1. Don’t let your African/ Caribbean culture fade away
2. Cherish and take care of your beautiful curls
3. Act as a middle ground between black and white people politically (sadly, this is lacking)
4. Comb your hair when it’s wet. Please.
5. Don’t mix up your thick body with being “fat” (and if you’re bigger or smaller, ya good too)
6. Embrace your hair, complexion, and features and don’t try to strive to look like a white girl
7. Use SPF 15 (you still half white fam)
8. Try to learn a lot about both parent’s cultures
9. Kinky Curly “Knot Today” conditioner will SAVE YOUR LIFE USE IT!!¡¡
10. Remember how beautiful you are and carry it with you every single moment of your life.
Okay, so I know I said I was going on hiatus for a few weeks but the cosplay gods have blessed me tonight and I have to post some of my progress now that assessments other than exams are done.
The detail for the back of Mikazuki’s armor! Before making the red omamori knot with tassels and attaching it, I made this out of a curtain ring and scrap pieces of Worbla from my in progress Hanbei cosplay. I primed the worbla part with 4 layers of PVA glue, then sprayed it with gold spray paint and a clear acrylic sealant and it looks so shiny and feels very smooth!!
Making omamori knots is time consuming…
It was a bit weird at first trying to get the hang of it but after a few tries I managed to make it look good. Once done, I just super glued the tassels on and voilà! Mikazuki armor 2.0 is complete!
So I guess I’ll just be posting my progress as I finish things. I should be able to finish everything by Monday so that I’m ready to pack everything up for the con on the Friday before. Sounds like a good plan d(^_^ )
When it comes to
figuring out how to take care of my hair, I am in fact a late
bloomer. I spent much of my childhood and teenage years with unkempt
relaxed hair and box braids left in for too long and for the past 5
years, decided to keep my head shaved because it was just the most
convenient for my lifestyle and how low maintenance I am. My biggest
issue with my hair has been combating dryness. Any hope of growing my
hair out into a big fro was always shattered because it was dry to
the point where my scalp would hurt, my ends would break and I’d give
in and give up.
I made promise to
myself the beginning of this year that I would learn more about my
hair and what it needed to not only grow, but be healthy. I literally
wrote down in my journal for a goal : “At this point, I don’t care
about long hair, I just want it to stay moisturized and be healthy.
During that time, I
came to the conclusion that my hair wasn’t dry and suffering because
it was 4c (both my partner and daughter have 4b + 4c hair and their
hair absorbs products and water very well! He has the most gorgeous
spiraling strands and she has the fluffiest, kinks- both always very
moisturized). It was suffering because I had low-porosity hair and
wasn’t taking the proper measures to take care of it.
Porosity is defined
as the hair’s ability to absorb moisture. Low porosity hair like
mine, without proper care, can experience brittleness, feel like hay,
is very stubborn when it comes to absorbing products, doesn’t
immediately become saturated with water, can be extremely dry and all
around very uncomfortable because it’s lacking hydration. Once I
figured out what it needed to stay hydrated- my hair started to
actually grow and thrive!
Here are ALL of my
favorite ways of maintaining my low porosity hair
my hair with shampoo often left it feeling too stripped and made
conditioning it a bit of a challenge. Because low porosity hair is
easily prone to build up, clarifying shampoos are recommended, but I
wasn’t digging it too much. I opted instead to use bentonite
clay with diluted ACV, kept it on for about 10-15 minutes and
rinsed it with warm water to keep the cuticle open for conditioning.
My hair usually still feels a little dry, but my scalp feels super
Warming Products I’ve
just got to put it out here right now- my two favorite products right
now that my hair loves are Shea
Moisture’s Organic African Black Soap Purification Masque and
Knot Today Leave-In Conditioner. When my hair is dry, it is on
the brink of survival, and these two products revive it every single
time, I’m telling you. The first ingredient on both of these products
is water and water is crucial
for hydration of low-porosity hair. I
dilute products, because if any product is too heavy, they can have a
harder time penetrating my hair. I just eye it, but I’ll add the
product to a separate or re-used bottle and add warm water and shake
it up. I did steal this idea from the Max Hydration Method, but boy
does it work. The slip I get is amazing and my hair actually absorbs
it. Be sure when applying product, you take your time to apply it in
sections. I used to think people doing that were being extra, lol,
but it’s especially necessary with low porosity hair so that every
strand gets moisturized and it actually sinks in.
Greenhouse Effect Method I had first heard of The
Greenhouse Effect about 2
years ago and didn’t try it because I had seen a few warnings about
watching out for over-hydration and messing up the balance
of protein and moisture in the hair. Because
of the state of dryness my hair had been in, I decided to ease into
it and I absolutely did not regret it. Simply put- the greenhouse
effect is a method that claims to promote hair growth and restore
moisture by creating a steamy environment where your hair can create
more sebum and in turn, nourish it. Greenhousing is pretty simple:
- On clean damp hair, add a natural
oil (I used very light oils such as jojoba)
- Add a shower cap, plastic bag or
saran wrap over hair
- Put a wig cap on to secure (this
is my own personal thing, it just makes everything snug)
- and go about my day or evening
You can leave it on for a few hours
or overnight and wake up to super soft hair. I do this about 2x a
week at nighttime and put my hair in flat-twists while it’s green
housing so I can take them out in the morning and have a soft,
While Deep Conditioning Steaming
while I deep condition has been another way I help my product
actually moisturize my hair. After applying my deep conditioner, I do
a DIY steamer, where I put a plastic cap or bag over my hair, dampen
a clean face towel and wring it out, microwave it for about 10
seconds, put it on my head and then add another bag or plastic cap
and then add a hot towel
from the dryer which
then creates a mini hands free steamer. I usually leave that on for
about 15 minutes. If you
prefer using an actual steamer, Amazon
sells a hand-held steamer as well.
Flat Twists and Finger Coils (and
other protective styles) But Mostly Flat Twists and Finger Coils This is pretty fundamental when it comes to natural hair care, but
whenever I heard the word “protective style” I sighed heavily
because my hair was (and is still in) the teeny weeny afro (TWA)
stage and it felt like I couldn’t do anything to keep it safe until
it grew out another 3 or 4 inches. That was of course until I found
flat twists- sweet, sweet flat twists. I’m terrible at cornrows, but
I can twist to the scalp and it is glorious. I do this before
greenhousing and wake up to the most amazing soft, clumped kinks. No knots, no trouble. I can keep them fresh, moisturized and safe for
about three days and it is a saving grace.
Finger coils are something that started as a beautiful accident. I just section my wet hair off, take tiny pieces and twirl them and it just stays twisted. This is really good for short, Type 4 hair because the twists don’t unravel as easily and best of all, I don’t have to add any product to my hair and it stays pretty soft.
I’ve also started getting into wigs, because of this cool tumblr
right herethat has made
wig shopping exciting and fun. I just do the flat twists, throw on a wig and boom. Done!
my Expectations of What Healthy Hair Looks Like Okay so this isn’t really a haircare
tip, just some sound words on
loving your hair. Not all natural hair is going to spiral and curl up
into shiny coils and that is perfectly okay. The main goal, for
me at least, is to take care of my hair the best way I can.
I realized, a lot of my frustration and impatience with my hair was
coming from the fact that I was looking at all these natural hair
blogs and youtube videos
and the mainstream was super long, super coily, super shiny natural
hair. I don’t need to touch
on natural hair favoritism because it’s been said before in depth-
but just because you have some frizz, or no curl definition or your
hair is kinky, clumpy and fluffy (like mine!), doesn’t mean it’s not healthy!
Take your time and be patient. Never stop learning. I swear I learn
something new about natural hair, everytime I take the time to sit
down and research. My favorite thing about natural hair is how
versatile it is. If you want to change it up there are so many
options to choose from- an edgy tapered cut, coloring it, flexi rods,
locs, box braids, crochet braids, Senegalese twists, ALL the weaves… the options are endless. So if you’re finding yourself in a rut with
your hair, no more comparing. Look into all the beautiful
possibilities and adapt!

You stretch out, groaning as you do. The sun was peaking through the window through the hotel room drapes. You groaned again and rolled over to face Baron, his eyes were closed and his breathing came in wisps that tickled your neck. One of his arms was draped over your body, curling protectively around you and his long hair fell in waves on the pillow behind him. He always looked so peaceful in his sleep, you almost decided to remain in bed with him, but the aching in your legs and lower back urged you to the warm welcoming arms of the shower. The room was still dark as you crawled out of the bed, careful not to wake him. He had a big match tonight, and needed all the rest he could get.
You slowly walked into the bathroom, gritting your teeth as you bent to turn the hot water handle on the shower on, your legs protesting. A smile crept across your face as you recalled the reason why you were so sore. A flash of bath robe ties, and newly bought pair handcuffs flash into your mind. Baron had tied you up, and god it was amazing. You whimpered as you stepped into the hot water, hoping the warm water would ease the burning in your thighs and calves.
As you lathered your body in soap you heard someone shuffle into the bathroom. “Good morning Baron” You murmur from the shower your tone playful. “Morning baby, may I join you?” He asks, already stepping in. “I suppose” You giggle, looking him up and down, licking your lips tentatively, running your tongue slowly over your top lip then biting down on the wetness it left on the bottom lip with your teeth, taking note of the way his body stiffens in response. “Not right now, quit biting your lip, you know what it does to me” His voice is soft but firm, as he reaches up and tugs your bottom lip free of your teeth, smiling when your expression melts into a pout. “Baron” You beg simply, pushing your body into his, your legs protesting, making you wince a little. “You need a break baby, let me see your hands” He orders, already reaching for your wrist, pulling up each one in turn, and tracing the faint red welt that circled them both with his finger. “You will need to put some ice on these” He says matter-of-factly as he release your hands, to capture your face, kissing the water droplets that had pooled on your pouting lip away.
“Baron, I’m not made of glass, I can handl-” you begin, but he cuts you off, pulling you closer to him so your chests were pressed together, “Shh! No Y/N, no. That’s it. You need time to rest, you’re sore and it is very obvious. We had a amazing time last night, and we will do it again” a crooked grin forms on his face, making your stomach knot in anticipation. “But today isn’t that day. Now let’s finish our shower and then I’ll go to the gym, and you can go to styling to get ready, and I’ll meet you in the locker rooms before the show tonight, OK baby?” He says, his eyes locked on yours the whole time, his tone soothing as he rubs your back. How could you possibly say no to this man? You look up at him, his eyes were soft and caring, and his hair fell in water-soaked tendrils down his back and his shoulders, covering just the top of the tattoos that started on his chest. “ok” You sigh, defeated and continue to lather the shampoo through your hair.
“Ok baby, thank you fro dropping me off, I’ll see you in a few, I have to go to make-up now to get everything in order before the show” You lean up on your tiptoes to kiss Baron his lips finding yours with ease, his smiled as your tongue found his, about the same time the catcalls and whistles started. “Y/N, make-up” He ordered, releasing you, and turning before you can argue, you watched him walk towards the male locker room, his muscles tensing as he stopped to say hi to people, rippling as they leaned into the hand shake. You tuned, tenderly placing one foot in front of the other on your way to the cosmetics table, you limped slightly, trying to keep the pressure off your slightly more sore right leg. Each step sent a burning, throbbing spike up your leg, and not in a good way!
“Hey Y/N” Sasha bounced out of her chair, long pink hair flowing up, then resting on her back and shoulders as she landed gracefully on the ground walking forward to meet you as she seen you walking towards the chair next to her, Sasha was your best friend, you started WWE together and you had never felt closer to a fellow Diva, The WWE decided to use your friendliness and the fact that you knew each other very well to put you in a kayfab feud together. It was you and Baron versus Sasha and Ziggler. Sasha and Ziggler got along well, but they were only about the role, and everyone knew you were with Baron now-a-days.
She eyes you suspiciously as you cringed while making the little leap into the make-up chair. You settled and let out a relaxed huff, leaning your head back, “How do you feel?” She asked a smile on her face. “Fine” you shot back, glaring at her, her smile widened. “You don’t look very fine” a familiar voice called from behind you, you both turn and there stands Charlotte and Paige, Charlotte was leaning against the wall, her long blonde hair pulled back so she could have her signature make-up applied, and Paige was already made-up, smiling and standing slightly behind her, a evil smile on her face. “she looks like she may have a injury!” Paige says with false alarm to Charlotte, grabbing her arm and shaking it to exaggerate the joke.
“Yeah maybe you should let Baron stretch you out, Oh wait! Looks like she already did!” Charlotte cackles and Paige erupts into laughter, making your face turn red.
“At least she has a man to stretch with, Miss. My biggest rival was a 80 pound crazy girl and Miss. My daddy has to help me win everything” Sasha shoots back, defending you. Paige leers at her, “From what I’ve heard her ‘daddy’ stretches her out after every match too!” Paige points a perfectly manicured finger a you, making you pale, then turn very red. “Yeah we all hear the moans.” Charlotte laughs again, ‘Oh daddy, harder!’ She mimics you, laughing hysterically. You leap from your chair with angry protest from your thighs, making you wince. “What’s amatter Y/N ‘Daddy’ go a little to hard last night?” Paige mocks you a false pout forming on her face. “That’s it!” You lunge forward towards her.
“ Enough” A male voice booms making all four of you whirl around to see where it came from. Baron was striding to you, anger on his face. “Let’s go Y/N” He grabs your arm tenderly, eyeing you letting you know he means business. “But Baron my make-up-” He cuts you off, “They will finish it in your locker room” He says, his voice radiating dominance. “Ok” You look him in the eyes and nod as he mouths “Please”. You go ahead I’ll be right there. “Baron-” “Go” he orders, and you know there is no use arguing. You walk ahead of him, but stop on the other side of the door fuming. How dare those girls! You’re just in ear shot of the conversation.
“If I ever, hear either of you speaking to her in that way again, I WILL NOT stop her from beating your asses.” Baron’s voice was low and dangerous. “As it is, I will not let her lower herself to fight with such nasty woman.” He continues “She is so much better than that. Fighting what a washed up has been and a New champ who needs daddy to take care of the matches for her?” he sneers at them. You hear them take in a breath. “Leave her alone, are we clear” Baron finishes, the tone in his voice sends shivers down your back. “Crystal” Paige murmurs, almost to low for you to hear. “Got it” Charlotte whispers. “Good” You hear Baron start to walk your way.
You scurry as quickly as you can around the corner to your locker room, sitting quickly and whipping out your phone, trying to even your breathing. Baron walks in moments later. “Hey baby” You smile up at him.
“Don’t listen to those girls Y/N, you’re amazing and funny and sweet.” Baron comes to sit by you on the bench, resting his hand on your knee, you giggle and lean in to his bare chest, he was already in ring gear.
“Why thank you” you smile, snuggling into his collar bone. “ I love you” he whispers, kissing your hair.
“I love you too”.
