Grateful Diaries #5

  1. I hit my calorie goal 2 days in a row, and my intake rate is slowly going up each day. Hopefully I’ll be able to gain some healthy weight and keep it on with best practices I’m trying to start.
  2. My tarot readings keep telling me that my rock bottom is almost over. I know it’s about my financial stresses easing up because my rent is going down and my car is almost paid off. It’s nice to be reminded that things are going to be better soon.
  3. Feeling so relieved that my husband is in better health now than last year.
  4. Got some amazing cannabis concentrates to medicate on. Been sleeping well because of it.

The other day, I wondered how the world of Harry Potter would be different if all students were sorted every year, rather than only in their first. So I wrote this.


Little is changed from Harry Potter’s first year at Hogwarts. Still he sits under that hat, thinking, not Slytherin; still the Hat considers his potential before sending him to Gryffindor. Still he is joined in Gryffindor by Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, still the Slytherin he so feared to be in will hold Draco Malfoy. Little is different about the placement of the older students, for all the Sorting Ceremony is made longer, and the Hat’s song a little changed, with their participation. Fred and George Weasley, like their younger brother, are still in Gryffindor. Ambitious Percy Weasley may be in Slytherin by now, maybe not yet, but he is a Prefect regardless. Oliver Wood or someone like him will still be Harry’s first Quidditch Captain.

In Harry’s second year, he and Ron are in more trouble than ever for missing the Sorting Ceremony. Now the Hat must be got out again to Sort these two boys who have caused such a stir, to confirm what surprises no one: both will remain in Gryffindor this year. (This time, Harry is once again thinking his wishes to the Hat, but instead of not Slytherin, he is pleading, Gryffindor, Gryffindor – picturing the warm Gryffindor common room that is the first home he has ever known, the first place that has welcomed him rather than shut him away. The hat, once again, obeys his wishes.) Both boys are relieved to find their House much the same as they left it; Hermione Granger is in their midst again, joined by Ron’s shy little sister Ginny.

Neville Longbottom, who had been plagued throughout his first year in Gryffindor by doubt as to his right to be there, is with them again, too. They missed his silent drama at the Ceremony, too, as the boy sat under the Hat that could see into his mind and reflected on the end of term. He had remembered standing up to the three classmates he thought he could call his friends, only to be left behind – hexed, as he so often was, ridiculed. More proof that he did not belong in the brave House. But he remembered, too, Dumbledore’s voice at the end-of-year feast – praising him for doing what was hard. He remembered being awarded House points for this simple act, and with the meagre sum, winning Gryffindor the House Cup. That heady feeling of being, for just one moment, a celebrated hero – that was like nothing else. That was worth a year and more of self-doubt. So Neville now unpacked his bags in the Gryffindor dormitories again, and, like Harry, he felt for the first time that he was home.

Harry has grown complacent, all his friends staying with him from his first year to his second. He hears the warnings of the older students on his Quidditch team (some of whom go from one House’s team to the next from year to year), the reminders that he will need to make new friends soon, but he does not really believe them. He cannot imagine his world changing even more than it has.

This is why he feels as though his stomach has dropped out of his body, as though he has fallen into some bottomless pit, when things change in his third year. He is still in Gryffindor, yes, and still with Ron, thank goodness for that, but Hermione Granger is no longer of their House. Hermione, who spent the last term of her second year as a statue, whose research was the only part of her that got to be a part of the battle in the Chamber of Secrets, who scrambled and sweated when she was unpetrified to pass all her courses in the remaining days of term – despite the promises of the administration that classes missed by the basilisk’s victims would not be held against their grades. Hermione, who had been called an “insufferable know-it-all” so many times that it had almost stopped hurting, who had felt so frustrated with the cavalier attitude her fellow Gryffindors took to classwork. She was now a Ravenclaw, the blue insignia on her robes matching that of Ginny Weasley, who seemed to have shrunk in on herself after the events of last term. (Ginny, like Harry in his first year, sat under the Hat in her second year thinking not Slytherin, not Slytherin, but then she had paused, and thought, not Gryffindor, too, because Riddle had possessed her despite her red-and-gold robes, and because she did not feel brave.)

Ginny, Hermione, and Luna Lovegood (here is one girl the Hat cannot imagine placing anywhere but Ravenclaw, though it will surprise itself in years to come) soon find each other in the Ravenclaw common room, and form an odd, but tight, bond over the first few weeks of term. Hermione finds that it is nice to have close friends who are girls; she never had this in her two years in Gryffindor. She still finds time to talk to Harry, to help him with an essay in the library or to keep him company on restless Hogsmeade weekends or to walk with him to Hagrid’s hut. They are still friends, and good ones; no disparity of House can change the bond forged in fighting a mountain troll together, and all they have been through together since.

She explains this, at last, to Ron Weasley in the days before Christmas vacation, when the dark looks he has been sending her all term finally come to a head in a shouting match outside the Divination tower. Ron, too quick to view matters in black and white, had seen her Ravenclaw badge as a betrayal, a defection. Had imagined that this was her choice, rather than the honest assessment of the Hat. Had felt left behind, discarded, second-rate, dismissed like his brothers’ hand-me-down robes that he wore. With Harry to remind him not to be an ass, to remind Hermione that Ron was always like this, they made up soon enough. Hermione laughed and called Ron an idiot, but fondly; and he laughed back, and told her that the blue and silver only made her look more the nerd. The trio were reunited, even if they were in different houses.

And, after that fight at least, perhaps the difference of house was a blessing in disguise. Crookshanks could not worry at Ron’s rat when they lived in different common rooms. There was no fight between Ron and Hermione about their pets; when Scabbers went missing, there was no talk of foul play, only an agreement between the three friends that they would try to find him. The three were still present in the Shrieking Shack, two Gryffindor children and one Ravenclaw, to bear witness to the true identity of Scabbers, to bear witness to the reunion of the three living Marauders. They still saved Buckbeak; they still lost Pettigrew.

A friendly reminder of some nice stuff NaLu got in the final arc:

• Natsu choosing to pick up Lucy for work the day after Fairy Tail’s reassemble instead of, say, choosing to interact with his “second possible love interest” even though he hasn’t seen her for a year

• Natsu choosing to spend the last night before FT’s biggest and most dangerous battle with Lucy. 

• Mashima giving Lucy the biggest amount of reactions (not sure if this is the right way to put it, but eh) to Natsu’s state:

• Mashima going all-out, paralleling NaLu and Gruvia in the “Natsu vs Gray” battle: Lucy played the same role to Natsu that Juvia played to Gray, aka the role of a love interest that apparently died, making the guy go berserk and fight his best friend, then reunited with him post-battle, finally putting her guy to rest:

• Natsu waking up just-in-time to save Lucy, +her adorable happy reaction to it:

• Natsu rushing to save Lucy when August launched his attack (forgetting about Mest and even Happy):

• Lucy refusing to give up her fight with Brandish, even though there’s a clear difference in their strengths, and despite her fondness of Brandish herself, because she needs to protect Natsu:


• Lucy calling out to Natsu in her mind when she’s in danger:

And him responding:

• Lucy speaking fondly of Natsu:

And getting teased for it:

• Lucy warming up Natsu:

• Plus all those smol lovely stuff:

And I’m probably forgetting something, but,

Conclusion: NaLu’s doing good.

Issues (Smut)

MASTERLIST

Request: Jeep sex and a good bit of fluff.

A/N: This is my first story in like 8392 years and I’m so put of practice so please bare with me because it’s not great. Also shoutout to Emily. You’re the real mvp. Feedback would be great. 

Word count: 4,185

We were sitting in the jeep on the highway from Toronto back to Pickering and though we weren’t even half way yet, the drive seemed longer than usual.
Painfully longer. 

Though it was a rather warm summer day, I felt the chills run down my bare arms the soon as we got into the car. The pesky silence between us was smothering, suffocating really and made my entire body linger in the most uncomfortable way possible.

<< helping your mental health: back to school >>

we all know that school is tough. really tough. and your mental health can suffer, which can lead you to burning out or becoming exhausted and unmotivated for a long period of time, which you don’t want. 

self-care. as we all know, i am a massive lover of self care. i think it’s so important and it’s enjoyable too, so what reason could you have to not want to practise it? it can be simpler than you think, too - i might make a list of self care things, although i’ve reblogged a bunch and linked them in other masterposts - for example: standing outside your front door/building and taking a few deep breaths or brushing your teeth or washing your face. 

know your limits. know how long you can study for until you start getting distracted, and begin to set timers. for example, i can work comfortably for about half an hour before i need a break, so i’ll set a 30 minute timer, then have a five or ten minute break depending on what im doing in that break (if im eating then five but if adding to my bullet journal then it could need ten minutes), then continuing this until my work is done or it’s late etc. 

talk to people. for me, my friends are my therapists. i go to them and spill out my thoughts and they help me - they give me a hug and give me advice and tell me that i will be fine, i’ll always be fine, i can get through it, and that they will be there for me every step of the way. find someone you can wholeheartedly trust and talk to them every time you feel yourself beginning to bottle things up. bottling. up. is. not. good. 

reward yourself. if there’s a particular day on your timetable that you hate or that is really difficult for you to get through (last year on a monday i would have 200 minutes of business - our timetable having three 100 minute lessons a day, and on mondays we would essentially have two business lessons) make sure you reward yourself at the end of the day. maybe that’s taking yourself to a coffee shop after school to relax, or to the bookstore and buying a new book or a nice new pen (don’t do this one too often since it spends a lot of your money over time) or visiting the library to talk to a regular you’ve made friends with or to read for a while, or have a bath or tidy a room or area in your house or call a friend or anything else you can think of. 

breathe. i do this thing called the 7-7-8 breaths, but you can change this to 5-5-6 or 6-6-7,, whatever suits you. breathe in for seven seconds, hold it for seven seconds, breathe out for eight seconds. repeat this until your heartrate has slowed to normal, you’re breathing comfortably, and you feel calmer. 

this is all i have for now, it’s not much but hopefully it helps in some way. feel free to message me if your mental health isn’t okay; we can talk or i can give you some self care things to do. ily all, stay healthy.

chocolate & toothpaste - tom holland

@booklovergirl01 ‘s idea.

SORRY IT TOOK SO LONG FOR ME TO TAG YOU AND SORRY FOR NOT TAGGING YOU RIGHT AS I POSTED IT’S JUST THAT I FORGOT WHO’S IDEA IT WAS!!!


The taste of a cinnamon roll suddenly takes over my senses as I finish the last sentence of my paperwork. Licking my lips sighing happily at the taste. My soulmate always has such nice food, and all I ever have is banana on bread with a drizzle of honey on it. 

I have always wanted to know who my soulmate could be, the possibilities were honestly endless. I’m a 20 year old woman who lives in an apartment who eats banana on bread with honey about 10 times a day. Waiting to find out who my soulmate is. I don’t understand how it works though. 

Like why taste of all things, and since it’s tastes, why can’t we taste their morning breath? Or am I going to deep into this?

I sigh as I get up off my very comfortable couch heading over to the kitchen where my mother and father were sitting. They had decided to visit me before taking a flight back home, but I haven’t been able to spend very much time with them as I have been consumed with all this paperwork.

I see my mum holding a plate out to me.

Bread with banana and honey.

I smile at my mum, gladly taking the plate as I munch down onto the amazing snack. I grab my phone out of my pocket. as I talk to my dad about some news that was on the TV this morning.

I go onto Instagram looking to see all of the recent activity. When I see that a certain actor named Tom Holland had put something on his Instagram story. 

I really admired his work, as he did an amazing job in his new movie Spider-Man: Homecoming. I click on his story seeing what he was doing. 

The first thing that pops up is a picture of steak. Which if I may add looked delicious. I tap so it would go to the next part, which is a video, making me turn the volume on my phone up.

“Why do I taste banana and honey? I’m just trying to enjoy my steak here soulmate, whoever you are.”

I immediately drop my bread and freeze. My mum and dad turning to face me quickly. I put my hand to my mouth. 

“No way.” I whisper as I quickly wash my mouth, seeing what I was tasting. 

Steak. 

BUT ANYONE COULD BE EATING STEAK.

I quickly run to my cupboard pulling out a plain chocolate bar taking a bite out of it chewing rapidly before running to the bathroom. As soon as I finish the chocolate I grab my toothbrush and put toothpaste on it before brushing my teeth. 

I sprint back to the kitchen grabbing my phone from the counter,

“What just happened?” My mum asks slowly.

“Mum I think I know who my soulmate is.” After quickly explaining to my mum what just happened I open up Instagram, and as soon as I see that Tom put something on his story I click on it as fast as I can.

“Okay, now i’m tasting something else that is ruining my delicious steak. Soulmate. Please let me eat my steak in peace. And who the fuck eats chocolate and brushes their teeth straight after?!” 

Holy shit.

Tom Holland is my soulmate.


oooooo I don’t know how I feel about this one.

should I do a part two?

Favorite Color? (Soulmate Au)

Originally posted by newtloveshisfantasticbeasts

Request: A soulmate Au where you see grey until you meet your soulmate.


The world had always been grey for (Y/n), and it would probably be grey for the rest of her life. You see (Y/n) was raised by a pure-blood family, and being a pure-blood came at a cost. They never meet their soulmate. Sure on occasions, if you were lucky, they’re betrothed was their soulmate but most of the time it never happened.

She was only 7 when she found out that most people could see in color. Which surprised her, considering her parents also only saw grey. That’s when (Y/n)’s parents explained about soulmates and how if she met hers then the world became colorful. Even then she still was okay with seeing grey for the rest of her  life.

That was until (Y/n) arrived in Illvermorny. Sure for awhile all the kids saw grey but by 5th year almost all of them could see in color. All except the pure-bloods. She tried to ignore the taunts of being called “Soulless.” or the taunts of “Hey pure-blood are you sure there’s even someone for you out there?” That’s when the hatred for grey bubbled inside her. 

It was that very blasted color that kept her from being normal. That one color. The bullying was extremely worse one day and that’s when she met the Goldsteins. 

“Hey Pure-blood you do know what color this is right?” A boy taunted waving a grey fabric in her face. No matter how hard she concentrated (Y/n) couldn’t tell, but she knew what happened if she got it wrong. Tears gathered in her eyes as she grew more and more frustrated. “Hey pure-blood I don’t hear an answer!”

“Leave her alone! She’s not bothering anyone” A voice cried out catching the group off guard. Another student, a girl, stood with her arms cross. She was a fairly tall girl with short wavy hair and a frown was on her face.

The boy huffed slightly. “Aw come on Queenie it’s just a little fun!” (Y/n) watched cautiously as the girl made her way over with a sweet smile on her face. It honestly scared (Y/n).

Queenie let out a giggle and replied,”Oh I’m sure it is, but do you want me to tell your soulmate about your other fun?” The boy’s face seemed to get paler and Queenie smirked. “That’s what I thought now run along.” Tina plopped down beside (Y/n) as the boy quickly made his get away. “Are you alright sweetie?”

(Y/n) shifted slightly and gave Queenie a thankful look. “Yea it’s pretty normal…” She mumbled fiddling with her hands.

Queenie huffed slightly shaking her head causing her curls to bounce in every direction. “Well it shouldn’t!” She turned to (Y/n) and smiled. “I’m Queenie Goldstein by the way.”

(Y/n) smiled slightly. “(Y/n) (L/n)… It’s nice to meet you…”

It seemed after that day (Y/n) no longer cared about colors. Cause when she met the Goldstein sisters she found out that not only pure-bloods got stuck seeing grey. That in fact sometimes other people met their soulmates later on in life. In fact, she had accepted that she might not meet her soulmate and decided that grey was her favorite color. That was until she met her soulmate.


(Y/n) had been slightly fidgety all day. Queenie was bringing her soulmate over to meet her along with his friend. She would have been glad for it, but this was not the week. You see (Y/n) and her parents had struck a deal a long time ago. She had 1 year to find her soul mate or else she would be married off. This was her last week to find him, but she knew that no matter what she couldn’t say no to Queenie.

So here she was in one of her nice dresses waiting for Queenie to show up. She glanced around making sure that her apartment was all set. Her great horned owl, Athena, was perched in her cage sleeping. All her papers were neatly organized on the coffee table in the living room. The flames in her fireplace were going steady and she glanced into the kitchen. the table was all set for everyone and the food was still cooking.

A small knock sounded on the door and (Y/n) was instantly at the door. “Queenie!” She exclaimed hugging the girl tightly. 

Queenie let out a laugh and pulled out of the hug. She grinned widely at the girl. “(Y/n)! It’s so good to see you!” She stepped inside and pulled a short man in with her. “(Y/n) meet Jacob my soulmate!” Queenie leaned in and whispered excitedly,”He’s also a no-maj so let’s try to keep this quiet.”

(Y/n)’s eyes widened slightly at the word “No-maj” but kept her mouth shut. She and Queenie knew the consequence of being caught… But if Queenie was happy that was all that mattered. She smiled at Jacob and held out her hand. “Nice to meet you Jacob.”

He smiled slightly. “It’s nice to meet you as well  (Y/n). Queenie speaks fondly about you…”

(Y/n) smiled slightly at the thought. She suddenly remembered something and frowned. “Hey wasn’t there supposed someone else?”

Queenie giggled and replied,”He’s outside the door… He’s just a little shy” She took Jacob’s hand and sang, “Come on Newt. She won’t bite.”

(Y/n) watched as a tall man came into view. His curly hair covering his eyes as he stared at the ground. He was carrying a slightly beat up suitcase as well. “Hello I’m-.” The moment his eyes met hers a pain shot through her skull.

That’s when she saw it. At first she didn’t know how to describe it. It was the most beautiful color she had ever seen and almost immediately the name clicked. She was staring into his green eyes. That moment she decided at that very moment that green was her favorite color. His eyes were wide in shock.

“Newt? (Y/n)?” Jacob’s voice pulled the two back from their moment. ‘Are you two alright?”

(Y/n) let out a small laugh and turned to them again. Queenie instantly noticed the sparkle in her eyes. (Y/n) grinned and replied, “Yea Jacob perfectly fine.”

Newt stepped beside her and hesitantly took her hand. “I guess I should introduce you to my Soulmate,” Newt joked sending a flutter of butterflies through (Y/n).

Soulmate…. (Y/n) smiled softly at the word. I could love this….

 Arrival to UK ∙ 120916 

I have finally set foot in UK! Visited Swindon, Winchester, London and now Leeds within the past three days so I’m quite tired. Actually we’re only staying for a day as well before heading to Snowdonia, it’s a busy schedule but I can’t complain, I’ll soon be in Nottingham and probably be stuck there for the next three years (unless I quickly learn how to drive soon) so I might as well travel while I can hehe. ┐( ̄∀ ̄)┌

A glimpse at last week’s spread, and also a glimpse of my face, I honestly can’t be bothered to pixelate(?) it and well I’ve shown my face on this website before so I don’t really mind anymore… Have a very nice day everyone~!

Song of the Day: Russian Roulette - Red Velvet

some reminders

- stay hydrated!
- think about flowers and how beautiful they are
- are you still bitter about that thing you should’ve stopped being mad about ages ago? try to let it go, you’ve probably already wasted way too much energy on it!
- don’t forget to eat, have some veggies or fruit!
- do you have any ideas for writing or art? if so, stop putting them off and make them happen! if you don’t, that’s fine too, don’t force it x
- take a moment to appreciate how far you’ve come this year and how much progress you’ve made
- send a friend a nice message to cheer them up and tell them you’re glad to have them in your life
- is there anyone you could write a letter to?
- stop wasting your time switching between apps for hours when there’s actually nothing to see - do something you WANT to do instead!
- have you been outside in the last couple of days? if not, force yourself to get some fresh air, it’ll do you good
- be kind. always.

“All Grown Up!”
Collab with @TheRaikume (from Twitter)


 A little adventure in character design for this week’s newest squiggle art as part of an awesome collab with @TheRaikume from Twitter. Drawing adult versions of our Miraculous heroes. Rai will be drawing Chloe and Marinette while I handled Alya and Adrien; my two favs. Yes!

We were originally supposed to draw them in casual wear but little ole me got swept away in this cool headcanon of mine. Now we all know from the series that Alya plans on becoming a reporter when she grows up. But the interesting thing is we don’t know what Adrien plans to do with his life once he’s older. Right now he’s so focused on keeping dear ole dad happy by being a model that I don’t think he’s ever considered what he really wants to do once he’s become an adult (I mean besides become Ladybug’s one and only devoted lover of course).

That being said, good thing for headcanons and fan theories right? My idea is that Adrien turns to a life of sleuthing and becomes a criminal investigator when he gets older. I found it really interesting that he was more eager to assume the call for heroism than Marinette so this makes me think that maybe all those years of being Chat Noir and defending Paris alongside Ladybug and all the other Miraculous heroes would ultimately inspire Adrien to become a crime fighter in his civilian life as well hence the criminal investigator title.

I also have this idea of Adrien and Alya teaming up from time to time and helping each other out with their individual careers. Of course by this time, they’re also happily married to their respective partners: Adrien ending up with Marinette (naturally of course) and Alya with Nino. It wouldn’t be a perfect grown up Miraculous heroes headcanon without it, am I right folks? ;)

Overall I had fun designing the looks for grown up Adrien and Alya. While Alya’s design is my favourite of the two (again, naturally of course), I must say that I’m most proud of Adrien’s design. I based his facial features off a another fan theory I shared last year where Adrien will look a lot more like his dad Gabriel as he matured; ultimately inheriting his nice high cheek bones.

Alrighty! My half of the collab is officially complete. As I mentioned before, @TheRaikume will be working on her designs for Adult Chloe and Marinette. Definitely looking forward to seeing those once they’re complete. As always, I hope everyone will enjoy this week’s newest Miraculous squiggle art.
Also as today is May 14th, wishing everyone a happy Mother’s Day. Hope you all had a miraculous Sunday spent with your families and giving praise to one of the most special ladies in your lives: mommy dearest.

Till my next awesometastic squiggle art, as always staaay tune for more precious star kids! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

Summer trends for 2017

Staying on trend might be difficult, even for a modern day gentleman. But good news for you: summer is coming, the time of the year when men fashion breaks out into a big party of different colours from bright to pastels. 

This summer the trend includes a lot of timeless colours like black, grey, navy, green and burgundy.

To make sure you have a clear vision of what the trends are going to be, we will inform you with the new and latest style for summer 2017.

Pastels

The new trend which was already upcoming last year are pastels. These are always nice in summer, especially when worn in suits. See the images underneath for inspiration.

Bright colours

One thing about summer is that we men are able to wear all kinds of bright colouring (like African prints) in our clothing. This is almost the trend every summer – because we can. Check out the images underneath for inspiration.

Trousers

This summer the trend will mostly be timeless coloured trousers, like grey, black, white and navy. Most trousers are wide, which makes it good and comfortable to wear in hot weather. Also in these trousers we see the summer-pastels.

Lightweight Parkas

These light and comfortable coats are one of the new trends as well. They are a relaxed, cool and light type of jacket – they are not as hot as they look, so you won’t sweat your balls off.

Embellishment

Embellishment is something we see more and more, and probably a lot this summer. It’s a creatice and standout type of style – a bit rebel as well, but we like it. Check the following images for inspiration.

some basic back to school tips

hi!! with school starting soon (or maybe it’s already started for a lot of you), i thought i’d make some sort of pre-school post. so, without further ado, here’s a list of things to try/remember to do the day or two before school starts!

  • get your backpack ready! make sure you have the necessary school supplies, personal supplies, etc. packed in your bag the night before
  • along with this, have any summer assignments completed and ready to go!
  • clean up your room/workspace. if you’re anything like me, your desk and/or room tends to get pretty messy during the days before school starts! take just a few minutes to throw out trash, organize papers, pick up the clothes laying on the floor (@myself). most likely, you’ll feel just a little less stressed during those first days of getting back into the school stress routine
  • get to sleep early! it’s a good idea to be well-rested and.. not falling asleep in class on the first day?? (save that for later in the school year)
  • have your schedule (if you have access to it yet) ready to go; maybe look over it a few times and have an idea of where you’re going throughout the day (aka don’t get lost every day for the first two weeks like i did my freshman year smh)
  • relax. this may be the last day you have to yourself to truly do whatever you want and take a break. go on a youtube or netflix binge, read for a few hours, practice your calligraphy, anything to help you relax for the day ahead! i plan on watching quite a few episodes of sherlock that night :)
  • take some more time for self care, too. have a nice long shower, shave (only if you want to of course!), exfoliate, do a face mask, paint your nails, etc! do anything that makes you feel.. fresh? clean? I don’t know what the right words is for this! but! yeah!
  • smile and remind yourself that you’re beautiful and determined and are gonna kick school’s ass this year- because you are!

well, that’s all! I hope this helped!! good luck everyone! we can do this!

Bokuto/Akaashi (otp: my head, his heart)

the better boyfriend battle by norio (M)  ❤

Summary:  It’s two days after their first date anniversary, so Bokuto ruins Akaashi’s life.

i put my hand out, unfolded, into the sunlight by carafin (G)  ❤

Summary:  In which Bokuto Kotarou is woefully inept at conveying his feelings, and Akaashi Keiji has a sort-of superpower. Sort of.

Karma by dgalerab (T)

Summary: Akaashi pulls a muscle and Bokuto offers to help him with yoga. Akaashi knows a bad idea when he sees it, and he really only agrees because he’s suddenly acquired a deeply rooted desire to see Bokuto do yoga.For multiple reasons.

Maybe We’re Airborne, Baby by sterlinglee (T)

Summary: Realizing he’s got it bad for his setter is the easy part. Getting his feelings across might be the hardest thing Bokuto’s ever done, not counting his literature final or putting out the flames on that birthday cake he tried to bake for Akaashi last year, or—or a lot of things, actually.But the point still stands. Reaching out to Akaashi is a leap in the dark, and he wants it more than he’s ever wanted anything (especially the smoking remains of a cake he baked before he really understood his feelings, but knew that it’s what you attempt with your own two hands that matters).

snowflakes by arsenicjay (T)

Summary: Bokuto is a simple wizard with simple needs; a nice date, a little romance, and he’s all good to go.Or, Akaashi and Bokuto spend a day in Hogsmeade just before Christmas.

stating the obvious by ThinkingCAPSLOCK (G)

Summary:  There’s a lot of things Bokuto isn’t sure about now that he’s in university. His program, his new team, his future. There’s only one thing he’s absolutely sure of. He is not dating Akaashi Keiji. Not even a little bit.

Year-Round Love by masi (G)

Summary:  In his first year of university, Bokuto realizes that he really adores Akaashi.

Rest of the rec list under the cut!
