“One year ago today I was wandering in open fields, unaware of how my life would nearly be cut short and then change forever. One year ago today the temperature was mild and I was making my way around familiar territory when suddenly a snow storm moved in faster than I was prepared for. The snow fell so hard and so fast. I was just a little guy. No more than a couple months old. I did the only thing I knew to do, head to shelter. But the storm was too strong. The snow was falling too fast. It was dark and I had lost my way. I pushed until I could push no more and eventually the snow covered my curled up little body and the freezing cold temperatures began to take me. I slipped slowly into unconsciousness. My body immovable. My eyes jet black. My fur frozen stiff. This was the end. It came so suddenly, so unexpectedly, so cold. The sun came up the next morning but I did not feel its warmth, nor could I gaze into its hope giving light. My eyes were frozen wide open, face down in the snow, and I was no longer breathing.
What happened next is mostly a blur, but like an out-of-body experience I recall two warm hands sheathed in wool gloves scooping me up and turning me over. My body fell limp. I could not hold up my own head, I could not see a thing, and I had stopped breathing some time ago. A crowd gathered around as I was put next to a fireplace and rubbed repeatedly. Still, I had been frozen for much of the night and the mere hope of a Thanksgiving Day miracle was simply not enough to breathe life into my lifeless frame.
But that did not stop the family who stumbled on my snow covered body. They continued working with me, turning, rubbing, warming until I felt something. I felt the slightest breath of air enter my lungs and my mouth opened just enough to signal the man holding me to keep going! Do not give up, there is life still in me! He did not give up. He did not throw in the towel. He kept going strong for more than an hour before I finally opened my eyes and beheld the loving human who had given his all so that I could have a second chance at life.
Thanksgiving will always be special to me. More than a holiday. More than a feast. It will be the day I was reborn, given another life, and shown love and kindness like I had never seen before. A love and kindness that is much needed and much desired in the world. On Thanksgiving I will forever be thankful for those who took me in, who gave me shelter, who gave me warmth, who gave me of their food and of their hearts.
Thank you to all who have supported me along my journey and join me as I live a full, healthy, happy, and blessed life! This is only the beginning and I have so much more life to live.
Today I am thankful. Happy Holidays from your furry friend Laz, the formerly Frozen Kitten.”
But glasses that can get knocked off or dirty or foggy and you need to press a button to take them off and clean them. Think Metroid style with spatter or dirt or snow or rain, but you need to manually clean them.
I also want this game to be a survival horror like Outlast. And if you don’t clean off the water or blood or liquid well enough or if your clothes are dirty, the glasses smear. I also want an option where you can just have the glasses off, but your character is nearsighted to only a couple feet.
Perhaps the area around the clarity of the glasses will be foggy as it would in real life outside of the frames.
Perhaps the more damage you take over the course of the game your glasses become cracked or scratched (Outlast’s video camera did this phenomenally) or, well, how about going through a level completely without them entirely.
I can only imagine the tension one little gimmick can hold in the entirety of gameplay. Do you run away from whatever is chasing you with your vision blurred from the dust in the air mixed with the spittle of your close encounter, or do you hide under a desk, frantically trying to clear off your spectacles so you can get a better understanding of your surroundings? Do you try to navigate a dark, fuzzy house without your chipped frames, your own eyesight playing nasty tricks on your sanity with the unfocused shadows, or do you brave the same visions with slightly less irritations, only to realize what you thought was the casted shadow of a tree outside was actually a creature ducking behind a wall?
Of course, these ideas can be more of a nuisance or irritation than an interesting focus, but, well
- Shiro is already in prison, presumably for murder, as hes in for a life sentence.
- Lance was framed and sent to prison, having been found guilty and is very depressed as hes tossed into a cell with an intimidating looking cell mate [i mean look at his nose scar!]
- Lance finds out that shiro isint quite as scary in private and they get closer and eventually shiro takes it upon himself to clam lance as his.
- the other inmates find out lance is off limits when shiro stabs a guy for getting a little too handsy
- Eventually lance is released, his lawyer telling him happily that they found the guy who did it and lance is free to go. lance doesnt want to leave shiro though and comes up with a plan to extend his stay. he knows shiro is in for life and that the only way they can be together is if he stays locked up.
- Lance ends up stabbing someone with a badly made shank in hopes that it will let him stay. shiro cant bear to see lance throw his freedom away and takes the blame. he gets reprimanded with a “this is your last time” warning.
- Lance visits shiro in prison everyday and talks to him through the glass. Shiro feeling like lance is wasting his life confesses his love and wants to say goodbye. he wants to tell lance to move on and live his life.
- Lance ends up confessing his feelings for shiro and is very upset that he cant hold him. goes straight home and plans a prison break with hunk and keith.
This is for the anon who requested for Anti. I sorta changed it a bit; instead of them forming a friendship, I’ve written the reader and Sean have been friends for a long time. Sorry if that’s an issue, it made it a little easier to write :)
“I have no clue if this fits Anti in your view, but if the reader had recently moved to Ireland and comes across him, thinking he’s Sean, and they befriend each other (him kind of fancying her) but someone who is against Anti kidnaps her and really tortures her (physically and mentally) and Anti finally finds them and goes BALLISTIC and saves her, revealing that he isn’t Sean and the reader doesn’t care but lets him comfort and confess his feelings to her? Sorry it’s weird… Thank you so much!!”
Warnings: swearing, mentions of torture, angst, fluff, a little blood, violence, knives.
Derek doesn’t do pining. He doesn’t. So when it becomes clear that Stiles is much more interested in having Derek as a new best friend than a boyfriend, he puts on his big boy pants and makes it fucking work. He becomes the best goddamn friend a spastic teenager could ever hope to have.
When his best friend’s son barrels into the kitchen only dressed in a pair of skintight jeans, lean but defined torso on display, Derek knows he’s truly and utterly fucked. Not only is the kid barely eighteen, but he also happens to be the Sheriff’s only son.
Derek makes a vow to himself that he will not seek Stiles out and he’ll get this thing under control.
“I could have every single inch of your body pressed right against mine, and I’d still say pull me closer”
The mornings were always tough, waking up at a decided time is never easy, no matter how much you try to convince yourself.
By today was different.
Today the woman who hated mornings so desperately begged for the time to stay instead of pass.

The problem I have with the argument that “Tamlin didn’t know the note Feyre sent was really written by her, especially since he didn’t know she could write and read now. He had every reason to think it was suspect” is that it so closely mirrors the type of rhetoric that people use to forgive abusers and reshape narratives of abuse in real life?
I mean it’s pretty simple:
Feyre = domestic abuse victim
Velaris = safe house
Inner Circle (and specifically rhys and mor)= people who help her escape abuse and get to the safe house
I mean, how many times, in real life, do we see domestic abusers angry and upset that their victims have escaped them? How often do those abusers go after their victims? I mean, that’s why the locations of safe houses are secret! That’s why there are entire networks of people devoted to keeping those houses safe and secret (the wards on velaris!!!!) Because abusers will try to prevent victims from leaving. And the reasons they give? “No one loves you like I love you” “I’m whats best for you” “I won’t do it again” “You can’t leave me because if you leave me I’ll do x, and x”
I mean, abusers, don’t exactly listen to what their victims say. They don’t listen to what the victim wants. They just…abuse and abuse and don’t really care about the victim’s opinion or wishes.
Fairly often, abusive husbands are angry when their wives and children escape and go to safe houses. They literally….will hunt women down.
So Tamlin’s reaction to Feyre leaving is…fairly in line with how abusers react in real life. He doesn’t listen to what she wants. It’s fairly clear that Feyre was unhappy…I mean her depression and eating disorder are obvious. She vomits from nightmares every night. It’s clear that she wasn’t being hurt by Rhysand all those times she went to the Night Court for a week and came back unharmed. She told Tamlin she was okay. She told him she was uninjured. So…Tamlin ignoring Feyre’s note is just another instance of him, an abuser, ignoring his partner’s wishes. It’s not a mistake on his part, nor is it an example of him trying to protect her.
It’s an example of an abusive man thinking that he knows better than the woman he is abusing.
Tamlin sends Lucien to HUNT FEYRE DOWN. He literally hunts her…to try and forcibly bring her back to the Spring Court. And yes, Feyre pretends to be all evil so that Lucien won’t know about Velaris but…Tamlin still doesn’t give up hunting her. He allies with Hybern in order to get her back. It’s sick and fucked up.
So I really…do not care that Tamlin might have had reason to think the note wasn’t from Feyre. Because at the end of the day, it’s just more of him being an abusive prick. And the logic of “but he didn’t know if she was okay!” mirrors how people in real life try to frame abuse. We constantly see this narrative in literature (fifty shades!) and real life that the abuser was just trying to do what was best for this victim and “didn’t mean” to hurt her. Okay well…ultimately it does not matter that Tamlin “didn’t know the note was actually from her.”
Would Tamlin have listened to it even if he had known, unequivocally, that it was from Feyre and represented her wishes?
Nope. Because…he doesn’t listen to her wants and needs even when she’s speaking directly to him. He didn’t allow her any freedom in the Spring Court even though it was killing her. Literally, she was wasting away. He didn’t care then, so why can we assume that he would have listened to the note had he known it was from her? We can’t. So you can’t really make the argument that “Tamlin didn’t know it was from her” because either way…his actions would have been the same.
He’s interesting in controlling and “protecting” Feyre, aka abusing her, he isn’t interested in listening to what she wants.
The argument that Tamlin didn’t know the note was from her implies that had he known, he would have acted differently. And that’s a false argument given what we know of his direct interactions with Feyre in acomaf (abusive! ignores her wants and needs). And…not only is it a false argument…it’s the type of argument that in real life…would be really detrimental to abusive victims.
this is what the interviewer said before Louis brought Freddie up:
“Last time I saw you was in Sheffield. It was like two days before One Direction’s tour came to an end, and so you were about to step out into this great big unknown. And obviously, an awful lot has happened for you, there’s been some highs and some lows. I feel like you can’t go through that and not come out a slightly different person. I was wondering, what have you learned in that sort of year, nearly approaching sort of two year period?”
what are the three big things that have happened in Louis’ life during that time frame, at least according to the general public’s perception. 1) him becoming a father, 2) his mother’s death, and 3) his arrest. i highly doubt he finds it enjoyable to talk about his mother’s death, which was obviously incredibly painful for him, and which he has almost never spoken about in non-print interviews, and he’s not supposed to talk about his arrest, as they’ve said.
do you guys really think it would’ve made sense for him to answer that question without mentioning BECOMING A FATHER?!?!?!? come on. he’s a dad according to the general public and when he gets questions like that, i’m not at all surprised that he would bring the kid up “unprompted.” obviously if he had actually become a dad, fatherhood would have taught him things and changed him as a person? like? his answer was fucking painful to watch, he was vague and awkward as hell, and some of y’all are out here acting like he just brought the kid up for the hell of it and he did something to YOU. he’s the one living through this, remember? can you guys cut him some fucking slack ever?
“Its 2AM Theo, what do you want?” you say into the phone
internally scolding yourself for even picking up the phone call. You and him
were always bickering. You didn’t understand anything he stood for, he just
seemed wrong to you, foreign, alien. You and your brother, Stiles, would team up against Theo. The others wanted you to give him the benefit of the
doubt but you and stiles refused, being the stubborn people you are.
“Don’t cut the call” he warns you. “Give me one good reason”
you counter, sitting up on your bed and switching on the light.
“Stiles is hurt”
You were completely awake now. He was human, just like you
and he doesn’t have supernatural healing powers. “Wh-What? Is he okay?” you
ask. He was your brother and you were worried. “I’m driving him back, open the door when I text
you, Sheriff can’t see this okay?” he says and you say yes, nodding as if he can
You walk down, you were scared. You weren’t sure what to
expect. You were anxiously waiting for Theo to text you back. You tried not to
think too much about it and panic even more. Your phone buzzed in your hand, startling you a little since you were busy stressing out. You slowly open the
door trying not to make any sound and wake up your dad.
The headlights of Theo’s car blind you and your hand goes to
your face to cover your eyes. Theo sees this and shuts the lights. You jog to
the other side of the car to see Stiles, he was all bandaged up on his sides.
You can’t see the injury but he was bleeding through bandage
on to the shirt. “What happened?” you ask as Theo helps Stiles out of the car. “He
used me as a human shield” Stiles says wincing as he walked. “What? Are you
crazy?” you exclaim as he walks him into the house and helps on the couch.
“It was an accident” Theo says, rolling his eyes at Stiles. “He
also saved my life, so I’m guessing it’s justified.” Stiles defends Theo. “He’s human Theo, you can’t pull shit like
this” you say to him. You were mad. “He can’t heal like you, you know that!”
“Oh yeah? Well, he shouldn’t have been there in the first
“He was trying to help Theo, I’m sorry not all of us have
claws and fangs, doesn’t mean we can’t try, that’s what makes us human. Unlike you”
you say to him in a harsh tone. For a second you almost caught him looking…
“(Y/N) stop, he saved my life”
“That doesn’t justify anything” you counter, eyes not
leaving Theo’s eyes even for a second. “Stiles, Since when are you on his side?”
you question your brother almost feeling betrayed. Theo was annoyed. “We have
an agreement” Stiles said looking at Theo. You also look at him and make a
face. “him?” you ask.
“I don’t like that face you make”
“I don’t like you”
He smirks. You wanted to kill him. “We’ll see”
“Let’s just watch some Full House, I’ll be fine (y/n)”
Stiles says and your eyes soften. You nod, giving in. “Okay”
“You watch that show?” You hear Theo’s voice, you hear a
hint of excitement. You turn around to face him. “3 little girls melt your
heart, Raeken?” you tease.
“What, no, pfft” he says, clearing lying. “I’m gonna go” he
says, scratching the back of his neck. ‘he looked really adorable when he did
that’ you caught yourself there and shrug the thought off.
You walk him out to the porch.
“Um, thanks for bringing him back home” you say. You never
thought that those words would ever come out of your mouth for Theo Raeken, but here you
are. “We have an agreement” he repeated and you nodded. You hug your arms as he
started advancing towards his car.
He turns. You did the most impulsive thing that you have
ever done in your whole life. You engulfed his big frame in a hug. He was taken
aback. It was surprising but he warmed up to the idea. “I’m sorry I just wanted
a hug and I can’t really hug Stiles because of his injury” you rant, pulling
He was speechless. He nodded and smiled a little. You had a
moment, there was a pause but it wasn’t awkward, it was comfortable. You immediately sneezed after the moment you
had, it was probably the dust in the air but it was very convenient. “I guess I’m
