RAZIEL + in like a lamb                          CHALLENGE #O22

Forbearance reflecting moderation; building a sense of peaceful stability and harmony rather than conflict, hostility, and antagonism; resolving issues and arguments respectfully, as opposed to resorting to anger and fighting; showing forgiveness and being merciful.

An optimist views the Ascension as a success for, finally, Godhood has been assumed and the civil strife splitting Heaven into two factions over the last eight months has come to an end. A pessimist sees the manifestation of War and knows that it is unlikely that if bitter feelings still linger, the end may yet still be far out of reach. The realist understands that both are possible outcomes and to reach the favorable one, careful navigation is necessary. Shaped into a bitter creature through the ages, forgiveness and mercy are not terms that Raziel is altogether familiar with experiencing. But if he wants to exist into eternity with a thriving Heaven and Earth, a little patience will benefit them all in the long run.

How can I satisfy my intense craving for pressure? Specifically my upper body (I've always kind of wanted a straitjacket or weighted vest). I can't afford a weighted blanket and I haven't got any pets or humans I can get to lie on me. Baths help (water is heavy) but obviously I can't live in the bath.

Since you enjoy the water, you might see if there is a pool nearby. If where you live is large enough it might even have a disability specific pool or a pool with autism friendly times.

Wearing tight clothes can often simulate pressures - this is my go to, and I constantly wear tight, long sleeve, lightweight sweaters, jeans and leggings that are tight around the thighs, compression socks, compression gloves, etc.

You can also try weighted lap pads, which you can make with a bag of rice from the grocery store. You can do this by taking a king sized pillowcase, putting  5lb bag of rice in it, and basically rolling it up. You can tie a piece a string around it, use velcro, or anything else to keep it closed.

Those are probably your two best low cost options.

Rue’s unit, although small, has a dedicated general uniform and are to uphold their appearance. Despite this, the unit is allowed to customize and personalize their uniform.
Generally the issued uniform would be a lightweight flak jacket, grey sweater, two pairs of combat gloves, one being forearm length, the other wrist length.
Either shorts and pants, both built for quick and silent movement. Their boots are standard issue, although if requested they can be without laces.
Their jackets can contain whatever accessories they want or need so long as it maintains some sort of tactical advantage.   Their normal color scheme is black and grey for their night operations.




Your body had never been perfect in your own eyes. You couldn’t help but notice the three distinct rolls that formed in your stomach just as you sat down, your tummy flopping over your jeans; your bra was never loose enough and your shirt wasn’t either. You knew that it was probably all in your head, but you couldn’t help but over analyze everything about yourself. You tried on outfit after outfit, trying not to catch a glimpse of your stretch marks or cellulite in the mirror. You ended up resorting to a pair of leggings and a long, lightweight sweater. You couldn’t help but feel like shit knowing that Luke would look stunning no matter what, his tall, thin frame drawing attention to the already famous boy. You knew that Luke loved you endlessly, every curve and rough edge of your body, but you couldn’t help but let the tears fall as you knew he could do so much better than you. Luke could get with anyone in the world; someone skinny, someone that could wear his clothes, someone that he could literally carry off into the sunset. You didn’t mean to start sobbing and forget to meet Luke in the parking lot of your building, but you did. You were absolutely a wreck, a self-pity party following you like a cloud as you tried to calm yourself down, splashing cold water on your face and attempting deep breaths. Luke let himself into your bathroom, hearing your small cries and deep breaths. “Princess..” He mumbled, wrapping his long arms around your waist. “It’s okay,” you sniffled, trying to smile at the beautiful boy behind you. “No, it’s not.” He frowned, letting you continue to cry. “Why are you here?” Your voice was much softer and sadder than you had wanted it to be, and Luke looked like he was on the verge of tears as well. He didn’t answer your question, just let you get it out, holding you and pressing kisses to your head. “You could do so much better.” You told him, wiping the tears from under your eyes. “Nothing seems to fit quite right, and I swear to god I just keep putting on weight and-” Luke cut you off, shaking his head and smiling at you. “I don’t care if you’re fat. I just want you to be happy, I want you to be in love with me and happy and healthy and that’s all. You could gain a hundred pounds and I’d still love you the same.” Somehow, you knew Luke was being completely honest. He loved you completely and wholeheartedly, no questions asked. “How about we skip our reservations and order you some clothes that you feel good about wearing? Would that make you feel better?” You didn’t give a clear response, just hugged Luke with all of your strength. In Luke’s eyes, you were absolutely flawless. He loved every curve, crease, bump. He would do anything and everything to make you feel beautiful and loved, even if it meant skipping out on a fancy meal and ordering in every once in a while.

Josephine worrying about everyones health when winter comes, getting them all garrish sweaters and baubly knitted hats and fur boots for going outdoors and fluffy slippers for indoors (because how dare they dirty up the floor with their boots! And holy maker Lavellan, aren't your toes cold?!) , and those gloves that are just one finger and a thumb. Leliana takes everything in stride and Bull is really into it for some reason. Dorian secretly likes it but refused to admit it.

The hat had holes for his horns. Holes. For his horns.


It even had handy little buttons so he didn’t have to finagle it around their massive breadth. He just snapped it on in the mornings and, voila! No more cold scalp. He had no idea where it had come from, who had given it to him, but he appreciated them more than he could say. There was a matching scarf, too, and fingerless gloves, all knit from the softest, warmest woolen fibers he’d ever encountered. They were patterned with red made to mimic the geometric vitaar patterns worn by Qunari soldiers, perhaps not entirely accurate, but, damn, did he appreciate the thought.

He wore them shamelessly whenever he stepped outside, and he’d never felt so snug and warm. If only he knew who they were from so he could thank them properly. He didn’t often receive gifts, but when he did, he liked to show his appreciation.

It confounded him for days (several warm, cozy days of bundling up in the mornings and being able to stand the cold for once), and over those few days, he saw others bearing the mystery knitter’s work:

Consider The Knitted Polo Sweater

For A Dad-core Spring Lewk

A subset of the sorta non-sensical “spring sweater” category, the knitted polo sweater is lightweight, usually banded at the bottom, and has a distinctively retro feel to it. Think vintage kewl Dad or like an off-duty Don Draper to put it in perspective. Aside from its chic throwback appeal, my favorite part about this particular article of clothing is the banded hemline. It will literally give you a waistline and make you appear skinny minnie - oh hayyyyy - and if that doesn’t appeal to you then you’re obviously crazy. And let’s face it, as we lose the ability to add interest to our warmer-ish weather outfits by layering all the clothes, the polo sweater is a unique alternative to the rotation of button downs and tees we’ll be sporting throughout the spring. Thoughts?

I don’t think I’ve ever put together a more unconventional color palette in one of my outfits before.  I’ve had this bow tie for a long time now, but had never worn it.  I thought I’d do something I wasn’t comfortable with, and match my outfit to the colors in the tie.  I just wish I had some gold jewelry to match the yellow stripe in the tie.

Bow tie - from thrift, and is the only bow tie I’ve ever seen that uses buttons at the base to adjust the tie length.  Has three shades of green stripes,three shades of purple stripes, one mustard yellow stripe and one tobacco brown stripe (although the lighting here does not convey that color scheme as well).

Button-down shirt - also from thrift, has collar stays, and is a pea/army green color.

V-neck lightweight sweater - in a woodsy brown color, from Destination XL, one of their in-house brands

Chinos - love love love these, my purple Tommy Hilfiger pants from Casual Male XL.

My brown hat is also from thrift, but my shoes are from Kohl’s,their Sonoma brand.

Suit Up For Spring

The Non-Traditional Way

Now that spring has finally sprung you’ve probably already started transitioning into lighter clothing like tees and white denim. But what about your suiting? While heavy tweeds and wools work well for fall and winter, spring time suiting calls for lightweight fabrics like seersucker, cotton, and linen. This year I’ve updated my seasonal suiting for spring with a cool oxford cotton gray suit. To keep it casual, I paired my suit with a graphic tee for a look that’s more “rooftop cocktails” than “business meeting.” You can even dress your spring suit down some more by wearing it as separates. Pair the jacket with denim and a tee, or sport the pants with a polo or lightweight crewneck sweater to get even more wear out of your suit. No matter how you wear it, a seasonal suit should definitely be on your spring must-have list.

tiny drabble for ana, who tempted me with the siren song of bokuakas on winter hogsmeade dates. also because slytherin akaashi and gryffindor bokuto are my ultimate weaknesses.

harry potter au (kind of, if you squint, just go with it)

“You look cold.”

Akaashi shoves his fingers deeper into his pockets and tucks his chin down, wishing he’d thought to wear a heavier coat. He’d known it was cold; it’s been snowing for weeks, and the cold is always worst in the peak of winter, when it settles into everything the air touches and leaves no room for heat. The temperature must be negative, or close to it–and yet Bokuto seems not to mind at all.

“Well, it is cold, y’know,” Akaashi points out.

Not that one could tell from looking at Bokuto; he’s in thin gloves and a lightweight jacket over a sweater that Akaashi had essentially forced him to put on before they went out (because Bokuto’s the one who’d convinced Akaashi to go to Hogsmeade with him, and Akaashi’s not going to put up with Bokuto and the cold he would inevitably catch if he were allowed to dress the way he wanted). The biggest concession is the red-and-gold scarf draped around Bokuto’s neck like he’d never worn one before–and, coincidentally, that’s what Akaashi’s trying his best not to envy.

Bokuto notices and grins, wide, before he yanks his scarf out of its messy configuration of loops. He looks all too happy to be freed of its confines when he says, “Take mine! I’m too hot for it, anyway.”

Akaashi weighs his options, picks warmth over the admittedly undesirable alternative of freezing, and lets Bokuto sling the scarf around his neck with a good deal of carelessness. The fabric is soft from age and frequent wear–mostly because it’s one of the only items of winter wear that Bokuto ever uses–and it smells like spilled coffee and cologne and sweat. Akaashi knows that because the scarf is wrapped partially around his head. He has to tug it down under his nose to breathe properly; it’s just an added bonus that now he can see to level Bokuto with a proper glare.

As usual, Bokuto is undeterred; he steps closer still, and Akaashi’s brain goes a little haywire. Though, he supposes, this sort of progression makes sense: Bokuto had asked him out to Hogsmeade (rather, he’d bothered Akaashi about never leaving the grounds until Akaashi had finally relented), and now he’s giving Akaashi his scarf. All signs point to this excursion being less of an excuse to get out and more of a…well, more of a date. And Akaashi might be a bit of a bookworm, but he’s got a good idea of what’s supposed to happen on dates–specifically, that whole kissing thing, which does something odd and fluttery to Akaashi’s stomach, so he usually tries not to think about it.

However, if that is the case (and Akaashi thinks it is, because Bokuto’s looking down at him with nothing less than fondness, and when he smiles it’s wide and exuberant and warm enough to thaw ice), Akaashi has a few options. He could ruin the moment on his own and avoid the situation entirely, or he could turn away, decisive, and deal with the pouting that would inevitably follow.

(There’s a third option, which is: to let Bokuto kiss him, to reciprocate the way Akaashi’s wanted to do for months, to have his one obligatory cliche kiss amidst flurries of falling snow and nevermind the lack of mistletoe.)

(This third option is the most enticing. It is also the most frightening, because Akaashi doesn’t know for sure what will come after, and he can’t bring himself to guess.)

Akaashi’s split-second dilemma ends when Bokuto reaches around his shoulders, takes the ends of the scarf and says, “Here, let me tie it for ya.”

Bokuto is typically not one for personal space. This moment is no exception; Akaashi’s nose is pressed into Bokuto’s shoulder as he knots the scarf into what is likely a very poor attempt at a bow. Akaashi closes his eyes, leans against Bokuto in a gesture that could be passed off as a momentary lapse in balance, and is only mildly embarrassed by the deep breaths he needs to take to calm his heart.

In this brief reprieve from the weight of Bokuto’s gaze, Akaashi finds himself both slightly relieved and more disappointed than he’d like to admit. Akaashi thrives on sureties and probable outcomes, but Bokuto is all spontaneity and thrills and Akaashi likes those too, likes that about Bokuto, likes what that means when they’re together.

(Option three is the most frightening, but Akaashi thinks it could be the best chance he’ll ever take.)

“It looks good on you,” Bokuto says when he’s done, clearly proud, tone dangerously close to bragging.

Akaashi’s warmer now than he’s been since they left the grounds, and only part of that warmth is because of Bokuto’s scarf. He’ll blame the pink of his cheeks on the cold and Bokuto will be none the wiser.

“Don’t get used to it,” Akaashi says, but Bokuto slings an arm around his shoulders as they resume walking, and he thinks there’s a chance he could warm up to wearing red and gold.

Bombers & Baggy Jeans

Business As Usual In My Winter Uniform

If you’re a creature of habit like myself, then you stick to what you know. For me that means going to my sartorial comfort zone in baggy jeans and bombers. This combo is pretty much my go-to when I want a casual, comfortable, no-fuss look so it made the perfect outfit this past weekend when I traveled to Philly for a little weekend getaway. I paired my “uniform” with a lightweight sweater - I can do that now…since the 40 degree weekend is practically a heatwave compared to last week - and my black zip-up boots which have been saving my feet all winter long. Of course, no trip would be manageable without a good carry-all, so I brought along my new backpack to stand in for my regular city “murse” - guys have stuff to carry too!
