like i want so much they actually meet in that world

Negative Emotions: How The Angry Birds Movie Addressed a Problem Better Than RWBY Did

I was illegally watching the Angry Birds Movie last year and I was shocked by its first 20 or so minutes. The cursed film actually managed a strong bit of world building that showed just what made the Angry Birds themselves so special in their setting.

See, they live on an isolated island where negative emotions are pretty much taboo. There’s not much of an indication as to the why of this but you get the implication that everyone just prefers it that way. Red Bird Guy is singled out as being a problem to the community when a baby birb egg is nearly smashed as a result of his actions on nothing more than a bad day. He is eventually brought to Bird Court and sentenced to anger management classes.

This is located in a small hut far outside the village, taught by a very cheery bird. This is where we meet the main characters who all have their own version of, what else, anger. They are taught constructive ways to channel their emotions so that they can be assimilated safely back into the community. What’s funny is, they aren’t entirely shunned by the other birds during this time. They’re still part of society but people are just weary of them.

It’s hardly a totalitarian regime, nor is there a Big Bird Brother in place. It’s just government-ordained therapy sessions for birds who get out of line. It’s really quite reasonable. Now the culmination of the Angry Birds Movie’s third act is that sometimes you have to get angry in order to accomplish things, and they do so in order to steal their eggs back from the evil Jontron Pigs. But that’s besides the point.

What I’m saying is that, in 20 minutes, the Angry Birds Movie built a world from scratch that showed that anger and negative emotions are looked down upon and are dealt with by society to make that society better.

You’d think something similar would happen in a world where, you know, life-threatening giant monsters are literally at your doorstep and attack every person they can find. Especially considering those monsters are allegedly powered and baited by negative emotions.

Even though these assholes for some reason decide to wait and sit on their asses for decades before looking for tasty angry people.

But yeah, you’d think that a society that has evolved alongside the Grimm would have found a way to curb negative emotions, right? I mean Blake gets angsty on a boat and nearly dooms everyone, and in volume 3, apparently things are always so on-edge that it took Penny’s robo-reveal for some beowolves to plow down guards at the edge of Vale.

Shouldn’t Vale, Atlas, etc, have programs that teach you how to be happy? Maybe like, way more than a single annual festival to keep spirits high and celebrate all that good shit? It’s it weird, on a fundamental level, that they value violence and host giant tournaments where students regularly get maimed or die when the Grimm are flying like a mile away from their floating stadium?

Iunno dude. Just seems like someone at some point would address how staying calm and avoiding public outbursts of negativity would be the best possible course of action. Like this civilization had a WAR. Multiple wars I think! Did the Grimm not factor into those at all? Did they really just stand to the side and let people fight? How about those settlements outside the kingdoms that tend to last just a little while? Does no one go “hey, maybe this is a bad idea since negativity appears to be inevitable amongst large groups of people” or “maybe we just need to build a town that parties all the damn time!”

No they just like aimlessly wander into the wilderness with a few pitchforks and hope they don’t die lol.

How You Two Meet

Kai Parker: You were helping Elena and Caroline set up the birthday party for Bonnie. You three wanted everything to be perfect for Bonnie. You were on cupcake duty. Caroline of course wanted there to be like 20 different kinds of cupcakes, you tried to tell her you don’t need that much but she wasn’t hearing it. So you just gave up and started making the different kinds of cupcakes. You were in the process of putting icing on the cupcakes, when someone comes up and takes a cupcake. “Yum, Cupcakes!” “Hey! They are for the party” “The party doesn’t start to I walk in, I think that’s what they say” “No ones says that” “I heard it in a song on the radio.” “That song is from like 2008” “I just heard it for the first time” “What? Where you trapped inside a prison world or something.” “Actually, Yes I was, excuse my manners, Hi, I’m Kai.” “So you are the famous Kai everyone is talking about?” “ Most likely, I’m the only Kai that I know of, are you going to tell me your name?” “Oh yeah sorry, its Y/n” “beautiful name for a beautiful girl.” “For a sociopath you have some moves.” “I learned from watching Baywatch.” “I have never seen that but ok.” “What its a classic?” “Well for starters I was 2 when that show came out and I’m a girl so…” “Yeah I totally didn’t think of that.” “Its cool Kai, well I better get back to making these cupcakes before Caroline flips her lid.” “We don’t want that to happen! Do you want my help.” “Kai Parker wanting to help someone without getting something in return.” “Who said I wasn’t getting something in return?” “Oh well in that case I can do it myself.” “I’m just kidding, just tell me what you want me to do.” “Yeah sure you were, ok you can icing these cupcakes.” “I was, I’m on it boss!”

Jake Riley: (Before the virus outbreak): You have just moved to Atlanta, Georgia from (your hometown). Of course you had no one to help you unpack. So you had to do it all by yourself. You were taking a box out of the moving truck when you see a very fit guy across the street. You drop your box and you hope it wasn’t something important because when it hit the ground it made a loud noise, which made the fit guy look your way. You stood there awkwardly smiling and you waved to him and he did the same back expect he comes running over to you. Oh great, this should be fun, you thought. “Hi, sorry I made you run over here because I dropped something.” “Its ok, Do you need help carrying boxes in your house?” “Yes, I would love some help. I’m y/n” “Nice to meet you y/n, I’m Jake. Sorry I made you drop the box, I hope it wasn’t something important.” “ Nice to meet you too Jake, Wait what do you mean?” “You dropped that box because you saw me.” “Wow aren’t you full of yourself there Jake.” “No, I saw you looking at me and next thing you know the box falls.” “Maybe it was just too heavy.” “I don’t think so, its ok, I think you are cute.” “Thanks I guess, Can we just start carrying the boxes in before this gets anymore awkward?” “I don’t think it can get anymore awkward than it already has but I like awkward.”

Mon-El: You were bring lunch to your brother Winn at the DEO. You walked over to Winn’s station, and he was on his computer so he didn’t notice you. So you walk up behind him and scary him. “Y/n did you really need to do that?” “Yeah I enjoy picking on you.” “I’m the big brother, I’m supposed to be picking on you.” “You aren’t doing a very good job of it Winnie.” “Please don’t call me that.” “I’m going to call you whatever I want to call you.” You were too busy fighting with Winn that you didn’t see a cute guy walk up to the two of you. “Winn, I need help with something.” “Mon-El I’m a little busy right now.” “Oh sorry, is this your mate?” “Eww, no she is my sister.” “Well in that case, Hi I’m Mon-El and you are really beautiful.” “Thanks Mon-El, I’m Y/n you aren’t too bad yourself.” “Thanks, I will see you around, I gotta go back to training.” “Ok, it was nice meeting you Mon-El.” “The same goes for you.” Mon-El disappears down the hall and you have a big smile on your face. “NO NO NO.” “What you do you mean no?” “You are not getting involved with Mon-El” “and what is that Winslow?” “Because he is alien.” “That is not a good enough answer, you wanted to date Kara and she is an alien, what’s the real reason?” “I guess I just don’t want to see my little sister get hurt.” “Aww Winnie, thanks for caring but Mon-El seems like a puppy dog, I don’t think he would hurt anyone, I got this.” “I know, just looking out for you.” “Thanks for that Winnie.” “You are welcome y/n”

Chris Wood: (when Chris was on The Carrie Dairies): You were texting your best AnnaSophia Robb who plays Carrie on the Carrie Dairies. She was telling you about the new guy on set who happens to play her love interest on the show and that he was perfect for you! She has tried to set you up in the past with her coworkers and it never worked out so you just thought this was going to be the same. AnnaSophia asked you to come to set so you could met this guy. So you got ready and headed over to the set. You were walking to AnnaSophia’s dressing room and you weren’t playing attention and you bumped into to someone. You look up and its a really cute guy, maybe this is who AnnaSophia was talking about. “I’m so sorry. I wasn’t watching where I was going.” “Its ok, its not everyday that you bump into a beautiful girl.” “Thanks and that was really smooth.” “You are welcome, I thought I would give it a shot. I’m Chris by the way.” “Its nice to meet you Chris, I’m y/n” “Nice to meet you too, y/n…” Before Chris could say another word, he was called to set. “Well I guess I will see you around Y/n” “I sure hope so.” Chris leaves to go to set. AnnaSophia walks over to you . “Hey Y/n, I see you meet Chris, I told you, you two would hit it off.” “Hey girl, what he is the guy you wanted me to meet?” “Yes, He’s cute huh?” “More than cute, he is the most beautiful man I have ever laid my eyes on.” “I knew you would like him, he seems to like you two, I will set something up.” “Please do!” “I can see what I can do” “Thank you, you are the best!” “Just thank me at your wedding.” “Shut up AnnaSophia.”

Author’s Note: I’m going to do preference series with Chris Wood and His Characters. If there is a character of his that I didn’t do and you want me to do, just message me and you can also send in request too!

So I have this canon divergence headcanon that one day after the final battle when Sasuke and everyone are settled in Konoha, and Taka with Orochimaru Sasuke decides he just can’t take it anymore. One minute he’s going about his business, and the next he realizes he’s done. He tried to pretend it was ok for Naruto’s sake, but this is the place where his family was murdered, where the people still don’t trust him, where he’s forced to work for the people who neglected him his entire childhood.

So he leaves. He goes to Taka and tells them that of course they don’t have to, but if they want he’d like to see the world with them, no pressure, no destination. Karin smiles and says “What took you so long, asshole,” and they head out.

They travel far away, beyond the hidden villages and the elemental nations entirely. They see incredible landscapes, and meet all kinds of people. Eventually they get so far out they don’t speak the language, but they adapt. At first they earn cash by doing mercenary work along the way, but as time passes and they gain new skills that starts to fade out. They start trading a night’s shelter for one of Suigetsu’s home-cooked meals, or Sasuke’s sewing skills.

I don’t know how this au ends. In my head they just keep traveling the world together, happy and at peace with themselves. A family.

Spring Breeze

So here it is! what I’ve probably been looking forward to for most of the week. @uchihanochidori and I have been working on a collaboration together and it’s finally complete for the last day, she’s been absolutely amazing to work with and i’m ever thankful that I ended up with such an awesome partner! 

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did writing it, and working together on it with her. <3 

Best of love to the best family in the world, on this wonderful week, Heather x

There are several perks to spiritual marks of destiny linking you to your significant other besides them looking pretty damn neat. For Naruto, the most helpful one would be the ability to be able to sense the general location of said significant other, especially when one wants to surprise them.

At this time, Sasuke Uchiha is on the other side of the village, most likely on one of his weekly meetings with Sakura. He left to meet her at around 7am (morning people - truly scary beings in Naruto’s opinion) and has been with her ever since. Naruto never has any clue what they talk about, and has never asked - he’s just happy that they’re on good terms after all these years and all the complications their relationship has gone through.

It’s not often that Naruto manages to get the jump on Sasuke, what with his partner being so in tune with him that he expects the blonde’s moves long before they take place. At this point, after years being together, Naruto’s pretty sure the Uchiha only tries so hard in order to annoy him. It works. But the continuous fails haven’t deterred him before, and neither will they now.

Which is how he ends up in their kitchen, a white apron with a cartoon tomato imprinted on it wrapped around him, a scrunched-up cloth in hand and a pair of bento boxes, ready to be wrapped, lying in wait on the counter.

some random headcanons

because i need to calm tf down and my love for webseries characters is stronger than my need to be a Drama Queen™

  • liv belcik is still traveling the world. she is a self-taught photographer and traveling journalist and she has a rather successful traveling blog that openly deals with her anxieties as well. it gives anxious and agoraphobic people all around the world hope.
  • george bates and george gleeson are being grossly adorable together right in this moment. they’re probably cuddling on the couch watching some nerdy movie of their childhood, empty pizza boxes in front of them, casually talking about their lives. they know exactly when to talk during the movie and when to just watch. they’re comfortable and calm and they’re not worrying about the future.
  • milly baptista is meeting her future girlfriend at a swimming competition. it’s absolutely slow burn, like, milly doesn’t want to rush into things this time, and also she wants to be 100% sure that this is what they both want, but at the same time she’s really into this girl and cannot shut up about her. this amuses bink and bates to no end - the three of them are a secret bi society - and Katie cannot stop grinning every time Milly brings up that girl like “aaawww you got a crush that’s so lame” (totally in a nice, sisterly teasing way) to which everyone tells her to shut up because her and Peter are literally the most grossly adorable couple ever
  • Balthazar and Peter wake up late on a lazy sunday morning, and Peter plays with Balth’s hair and asks Balth what pronouns they want for the day. This is their usual morning, and it makes genderfluid Balthazar feel so fucking validated and loved. then they bicker about who should get up and make breakfast - it ends up being Balth, because Peter still hasn’t got the hang of making those fluffy vegan pancakes. (Balth constantly accuses Peter of not making them properly on purpose. They don’t care though, because they love getting up early when everyone else is still sleeping, making pancakes for everyone - especially because Peter tends to make these (almost obscene) appreciative noises while eating those pancakes.)
  • Sherlock and Jamie hang out together in silence, Sherlock playing the ukulele, Jamie on her phone, doing nothing in particular. they’re not talking much, just enjoying each other’s presence. there are no cases, and they’re both okay with that for now.
  • Charley has had a really cathartic therapy session today. she cried a bit there, but she’s feeling so much better now, like a weight has been lifted from her chest. on her way home she looks around and so many things seem beautiful: the rays of sunshine falling on her face, the familiar pressure of her hat grounding her, some invisible birds somewhere singing. she picks up a smooth, nice looking stone from the ground and puts it in her pocket. every now and then, she slides her hand in her pocket and touches the stone. she hasn’t picked her skin or torn her hair in a while now, and she’s proud of that. no one tries to push her in a direction she’s uncomfortable with.
  • dylan leaves a party early, but doesn’t want to go to bed yet, so they text ava to see if she’s still up. ava immediately replies, so dylan comes to her room. ava is tired so her guard is down a little, and dylan maybe uses being a little tipsy as an excuse to be a little more affectionate than usual. it ends with dylan resting their head on ava’s leg and almost falling asleep there, and ava absent-mindedly stroking dylan’s hair while reading a book
  • serena and roxanne go on their first date together. serena doesn’t actually know yet it’s a date beause Roxanne hasn’t had the guts to tell her she wants it to be one. they go to see hidden figures. they’ve already seen hidden figures together, and roxanne even went to see it again with deena, rags and rosie, but who cares, that movie is fucking awesome and roxanne wants to see it again. this time though, roxanne has trouble focusing on the movie, because all she can think about is how to tell serena that this should be a date - and then suddenly, when she sneaks another glance at serena, serena looks back at her, and roxanne doesn’t break eye contact, and her heart is almost exploding in her chest, but she reaches out her hand for serena to hold, and serena is confused and overwhelmed but not ready yet to ask, so she just takes roxanne’s hand and they just quietly hold hands for the rest of the movie, and roxanne’s face hurts from smiling so much
  • also lbr at some point (maybe that same night when they walk home and stop for a moment to watch the stars), roxanne probably pulls a “the stars are beautiful tonight” and serena, absolutely expecting a silly joke, plays along. “yeah,” she says. roxanne, taking a deep breath, continues. “you know who else is beautiful?” serena quietly curses her heart for that little hopeful stutter right there, bites her lip, then asks “who?” roxanne closes her eyes, then opens them again slowly, looking directly at serena, and for a second she’s absolutely overwhelmed by how much she loves that girl. “you,” she whispers quietly and THIS IS SO GAY BUT OMG I JUST WANT THEM TO KISS

koalamuffins  asked:

What's the cutest Happily Ever After au you've heard?

Well obviously my #1 fave is the one where they meet before his mom dies. I love it so much because it’s what Veronica said she really wanted? When she says “I wish we’d met before they convinced you life is war” she’s saying “I wish I was there for you when everything’s went to shit so I could have saved you.” And honestly I think that’s true. Because if he grew up with her and he knew her before things turned bad, he would see that there actually WAS good in the world and he wouldn’t be so convinced it was a dark terrible place filled with terrible people. I’m not saying he would be some happy optimist, like he would still be through all the same emotional trauma and it would fuck him up, but having her there with him, holding his hand through all of it would make the difference he needed not to go totally off the rails. He’d still be the same person ofc, and would have mostly the same views/habits. He’d always be in love with slushies lmao because even tho he has Veronica, he’d still have all kinds of bad thoughts that he wants to block out by freezing his brain tbh. And he’d still be a huge pessimist, and hate pretty much everything except her, but because she’s with him he would be more stable and stuff. (Even if she left him - he would never recover from it, but he wouldn’t go batshit crazy because he never became as messed up in the head as he did in canon).
Anyway that was a long answer to a short question I’m sorry lol! But there it is

pretty odd

genre: the fluffiest of fluff

warnings: death mention, but d&p don’t die, dw.

words: 12k what

summary: Dan Howell, piano teacher and speedster, craves chocolate cakes at three in the morning. He meets a baker named Phil who owns the only store opened at three in the morning and who bakes the most delicious chocolate cake in the world. It’s a pretty odd love story.

a/n: this motherfucker. This fucking fic, man. It went through seven different phases I’m not even kidding. This is the Chosen One™. I had such a blast writing this. I loved working on it, and I hope you love it, too. Thank you for 1k, and I hope this shows my gratitude <33

also, quick facts: John Chambers is an actual fictional character! he’s a speedster who obtained his powers via the speedster formula. The more you know.

anonymous asked:

I have a question that's may be game changer on how deep the connection between Yume was/is.How in the world did Kaname saw a glimpse into the future and met Yuuki?And why did he want to see her again?Love at first sight?But like is this a loop in time?Cuz like KANAME saw her first and then we go back to the present moment where Yuuki enters some of Kaname's memories which causes a "predestined paradox":He meets her in past,meets her in future,Yuuki enters his memories and so The cycle continues

Hi, dear anon!

Please forgive me for this terribly late reply, but I (and my other team members) have been incredibly occupied with studies, work, and well life. I have, however, been eyeing this ask for some time and wanted to respond. Actually, so much so that I will only give a brief response now and write out a longer article during this weekend, the first two days of April.

You see, this always intrigued me. By Kaname having a premonition of Yuuki in the past several times, he was actually looking into the future of what would be. You can call it fate if you want. In their timeline of life, it was always destined that Yuuki would drink from Kaname and delve into his memories, learning more about who he really is, which was a very intimate moment between them.

Yuuki and Kaname were always going to go in that direction of intimacy and passion for each other, because when you think about it and their character wise, there really is no way that Yuuki would drink from Kaname long enough to go inside his head and memories without it being… you know, romantic in a sense. I mean, could you picture Yuuki tackling Kaname down to the ground, demanding to know who he is and draining him of that much blood? (ZeKi Logic) Let alone Kaname consenting to it, if they didn’t have those feelings towards each other.

So my point is that Kaname saw Yuuki over ten thousand years ago in premonitions, which sealed their fate to be honest. Hence why they have a unique connection through all eternity.

My Hoperai Opinion

So, out of all people, ONLY Hope who could actually hear Lightning’s call for help because deep in her heart she actually spoke of what she really wanted, and that is “Being Loved”. All this time she thought nobody loved her, including Serah, and that made her always felt sad and lonely. But after that scene, it proved that she’s wrong. Hope answered her call for help and saved her after refusing Lightning’s offer to be reborn with his parents in the new world. Remember that time when he said “Don’t worry, even if the world hates you, I’ll always be by your side, Light” and during the ‘Meeting You’ scene when he said “Because of you, because I always believed you were with me, I was never afraid of the future…..I’m so glad to have met you” I think that pretty much confirms Hope’s love for Lightning. It’s like she’s the number one person in his heart (More evidence of Hope’s love for Light in Rose-Haired Phantom episode). And after he rescued her, there’s a glimpse of Serah confessing her sincere love to her sister. That’s why after Lightning Returns and Reminiscence: Tracer of Memories, I’m not afraid to say that Hoperai ended up being “Heavily Implied Canon” Even though without the famous “I Love You” from their very own mouth, there are so many hints that we can find about these two, either through words or visuals, and even the symbolism (Oh, and also the epilogue soundtrack *wink**wink*)……

Can I also add that Lightning Returns made Hope ‘The Saviour’s Saviour’ teehee

ok but you know what would be cool? if shadowhunters did an AU episode for every tenth (or the episode before any season/midseason finale) episode each season just to give us an update on how our au darlings are doing like last time clary went, so what if next time jace accidentally falls through when lurking and discovers that in another life he is a fucking barista at a coffee truck and we get to see how au malec are doing and how shocked jace is at how proud and chatty and not-alec alec is and valentine is actually a good father?????? he also finds it facinating how nerdy izzy is and he takes too much joy out of listening to her talk about the upcoming star wars movie and simon actually has some game??? that’s New™ and he’s so surprised when he meets valentine and jocelyn bc they’re not his parents???? clary is not his sister???? and when he returns (meliorn obviously slaps him again) he has a lot of questions ALSO magnus in a grandfather sweater??????????????

au for @everythingelsegoesherethen: dean winchester owns the marauders’ map and uses it to make sure he and castiel always ‘accidentally’ meet at strange times.

Since he became a Prefect at the beginning of his fifth year, Castiel Novak has dealt with a lot of troublemakers who clearly just haven’t read the Hogwarts rulebook.

Dean Winchester is not one of these.

Dean Winchester is clever. He knows exactly what he’s doing. He’s read the handbook and

And he never, ever gets caught.

Which is why Castiel is confused when he apprehends Dean for the third time in a month, trying unsuccessfully to get into a secret passage out of the school that Cas /knows he knows exactly how to access. And yet he’s tapping all over the one-eyes witch with his wand, cluelessly trying every combination of “Let me in!” that he can, acting for all the world as though he’s under some kind of Confundus charm.

He turns the light of his wand on Dean, and Dean turns around, doing a very good job of pretending to be startled.

“Dean Winchester?”

“Yeah, that’s me,” the boy grins, blushing and looking down at the floor but not seeming at all upset that he’s just been caught breaking five school rules at once.

“Yes, well, you’re out of bed after lights out, you’re messing with school property and you’re using magic in the corridors.” Cas is a little flustered and he can’t even explain why, but he still manages to tick at least some of the offenses off on his fingers.

“I /am? Oh, man, Cas, I’m so sorry. And I promise you it won’t happen again.” Dean is all mock-apologetic as he claps Cas on the shoulder and starts to walk away down the corridor.

“F-five points from Gryffindor!” Cas calls after him in a shaky voice.

This becomes a recurring problem. The following week, Cas runs into Dean in the restricted section of the library without a note giving him permission to be there. A few days later, he catches Dean in the act when he’s just about to set off a whole box of Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes fireworks. Another time, he finds Dean on the Quidditch pitch after dark when it’s supposed to be locked up, flying loops just to show off. Sometime after that, Cas goes to take a bath in the Prefects’ bathroom at the end of a long day, and he finds the tub already overflowing with bubbles, Dean in a pair of red swimming shorts lazily swimming laps.

And for some reason it’s always harder for Cas to keep his cool around Dean that it is around anyone else. Usually he’ll dole out detentions without even blinking;the whole school respecting his authority, but something about this kid has him barely remembering the name of the red and gold house that he’s supposed to be taking points from. It /irks him, because he was given the Prefect position for a /reason, and he’s supposed to be unbiased and impartial and above such things.

After all this has been going on for a good few months, and Cas is no closer to figuring out what exactly is going on in Dean Winchester’s unfairly pretty head, he finds a piece of parchment on the floor. It’s on his normal patrol route, but not on a main corridor - it’s on one of the back routes that only Cas is responsible for walking down on his shift after lights out. It’s placed right in the middle of the corridor where Cas is guaranteed to see it. Almost as though it was left especially for him.

He picks it up. It looks blank at first, but when he unfolds it, he sees that it’s a map - an incredibly detailed map of the whole of Hogwarts castle, every room drawn, Cas believes, perfectly to scale, labelled in calligraphy, every secret passage and hidden entryway marked. Not only that, but the map is enchanted, constantly moving, staircases twisting their way through the halls in what Cas suspects is real time, and most importantly of all, tiny sets of footprints making their way through the castle halls, each with a name attached to them. Cas spots his own name next to his own footprints, which are still in the exact spot that he’s in.

He takes a step forward, and the footprints move with him.

Most of the spots are clustered in the common rooms and dormitories at this time of night; just a few Prefects and professors wandering up and down the corridors. But Cas has a sneaking suspicion he knows who this map belongs to, and the person doesn’t seem to be in the Gryffindor boys’ dormitories where he should be. Against his will, Cas finds his eyes skating over the map, looking for the potential offender.

Dean Winchester’s spot is pacing the Tallest Astronomy Tower.

Of course, none of this necessarily means that the map /actually corresponds to where people actually are. It could just be an example. Could be everyone is placed randomly and doesn’t move, no matter where they really are.

Which, of course, explains why Cas is already walking purposefully towards the Astronomy tower, taking each set of stairs two at a time, checking the map every few seconds to make sure Dean is still in the same place.

He reaches the door to the tower, and he’s not even completely conscious of why he’s doing it, but he runs a hand through his hair to fluff it up and he straightens his blue and bronze tie before he walks inside.

Dean’s there, as predicted, no longer pacing but standing in the center of the room - waiting for him? The tower is open to the heavens - not like the Great Hall, not like an enchanted version of the sky, but actually open, the summer night stars glinting down and reflecting off of magical lights that have been conjured and left to hover all around the edge of the circular tower room, a light breeze ruffling Cas’ robes as he steps towards Dean, noticing that the usually bare wooden floor is scattered with large, puffy gold and bronze cushions.

Cas holds out the map. “I think this is yours.”

Dean takes it from him, not at all surprised to see Cas there. “Don’t think it’s really anyone’s. Thing kind of has a mind of its own. But yes, I’ve been using it for a while.”

“Tell me something?” Cas asks. “You just admitted this is yours. With this you can see anyone coming at any time, you can always stay one step ahead of any professor or prefect, you never have to get found out by anyone. But you keep letting me catch you. Why?“

"That depends,” Dean says with a smirk. “Why’d you bring the map back instead of handing it into a professor? Seems like it’s a contraband object. Seems like I /should get in trouble.”

Cas opened his mouth to retort to that, but realized he didn’t have anything to say. Why /had he come here? Dean was right, after all. His first instinct, as a Prefect with designs on Head Boy at some point in the future, should have been to turn the object over to a member of staff. His mind shouldn’t even necessarily have jumped to Dean. But it had, and now he was here.

“Alright. That aside, why’d you wait for me? Why’d you pick a specific place, here, that you have /no reason to be and just pace around hoping I’d show up to find you?”

Dean spluttered, but quickly recovered. “Why’d you look for me on the map? Why’d you stare at it for so long that you saw where I was in the first place?”

“Why’d you decorate? The stars, the lights, the cushions? Why’d you set this all up for a special occasion?”

They stared at each other for a while, breathing heavily, waiting for the other one to be the first to break.

Cas cracked, and Dean gave up at the same moment, and then he both of them were lunging towards each other, Dean grabbing Cas by the tie he’d just straightened, pulling it askew, Cas fisting both of his hands in Dean’s robes, both yanking the other towards them, crashing their lips together so hard that it was almost painful when they met, their bodies falling into each other, their teeth clashing and their noses bumping and when they pull apart, they both tumble down onto the pile of cushions they’ve set up and /now Cas understands why they’re there, /now it makes sense because their landing is soft and they can reach for each other again immediately, both of them lying on their sides in the heap of fluffy pillows, kissing each other over and over and over again, each one making their lips tingle. Over time, as they grow used to the feeling, the kisses become slower, softer, more languid, and the hooded eyes when they pull away from each other are less from desire and more from tiredness, and they’re both sure they’d be happy to sleep here.

"So, what? You’ve been risking detention and house points for Gryffindor and your reputation as someone who never gets caught just to… just to get my attention?” Cas asks finally, propping himself up on one elbow.

Dean tugs him back down and kisses him again. “Well, you’re risking your Prefect position right now. But I feel like you always have to risk a little something to get the best things in life.”

And between holding hands on long walks by the lake, between screaming themselves hoarse together at Quidditch matches, between feeding each other Bertie Botts’ Every Flavour Beans while studying in the library, and between many, many more long nights in the Astronomy tower, Cas learns that as frustrating and complicated as he is; Dean is definitely one of the best things in his life.

Famous Last Words

Summary:  In a world where the last words your soulmate will say to you are written on your wrist, fearful and introverted Phil works in a bookstore. His greatest fear? The words counting down the seconds until he meet his soulmate, someone called ‘Dan.’ But it isn’t until he befriends a university student that he nicknames ‘Bear’ that Phil realizes that surviving through fear isn’t the same as living.

A/N: Sometimes these things seem to go along smoothly exactly in the way and direction the writer wants them too. Or so they say at least. I’ve never actually had that happen to me before.

Happy actual birthday Emu!

This chapter is dedicated to Elana, who to this day was one of the first people to put up with my fangirling and though she may not look like much height wise, her kindness, intelligence, and overall wonderful personality makes up for it in full.

Chapter Three   

     The book was sitting on his desk when he arrived the next day. A blue sticky-note stuck out of the top of the pages, something scrawled across the top with a black sharpie. Phil hung his coat on the back of his chair, taking a seat and pulling the book towards him. Balancing a cup of coffee in one hand, he opened to the sticky-note.

     The message looked like it had been written in a hurry, although it was still a lot neater than Phil’s handwriting could ever be. Before he had even read the note he knew who it was from. He brushed his thumb over the writing as he gently removed the note and stuck it to his desk.

     I finished this last night and I figured you might not have read it yet.

     Smiling, Phil flipped the book shut, reading the title. Seconds.

    Without a second thought he turned on the light, leaning back in his chair and opening to page one. If his manager walked in  he was screwed, but the urge was too tempting and his willpower was too weak.

      As he turned the page, Phil caught himself thinking about what Bear’s thoughts had been whilst reading Seconds. If there was someone with a definite opinion, it would be Bear. While it seemed on a surface level at least that Bear chose not to talk more than was necessary, their last conversation had shown Phil that there was an intelligent if somewhat sarcastic personality hidden underneath a layer of shyness and insecurity.

     The bell jingled and he reluctantly bookmarked his page, plastering a smile on his face. Part of him was hoping that it was going to be Bear, but he knew it wasn’t before he had even registered who it was.

Amon and Kaneki finally meet and Amon is like “you know, I really wanted to talk to you back then.” 

“about what?” Kaneki asks.

“Honestly?” Amon says, “It’s kind of unnecessary now. I’ve been living it for the past 3 years. But I suppose we could have the conversation for old times sake.”

I just really want them to have that conversation. Even if it’s kind of weird to be having now. Because technically Amon has lived as a ghoul longer than Kaneki ever did at this point, if you don’t count the years Kaneki spent as Sasaki trying to be as human as possible.

But I still really want the conversation.

I suppose it’s possible that Amon hasn’t actually talked to any non-Aogiri ghouls in all that time so he still hasn’t learned the lessons about ghouls being just as compassionate and kind and dorky as humans that Kaneki did in his year of living in that world.

I want this manga to, however briefly, turn into a quirky meet the family comedy where Kaneki, now having left the CCG, has to reunite with his old friends and sort of introduce Amon and his Floppy crew, and it’s awkward and sometimes tense, and there are arguments about Amon being a former Dove (that was working with Mado of all people, when Ryoko was killed). Kaneki trying to defuse the tension by mentioning that he was kind of a Dove for 3 years as well, and, of course, this has the opposite of it’s intended effect, except that everyone agrees that that is not the same.

I really need at least one scene between Yomo and Amon - Giant Ukaku guardians silently appraising each other and deciding that yes, they both have Kaneki’s best interests at heart.

Gosh I want all the Amon and Kaneki scenes. All the Amon + Kaneki’s old friends scenes. I just want all the Amon scenes. 

He was gone for so long, it’s time for the manga to just be about him for a while.


Gency. Oneshot. Fluff. 

It’s midnight, but it’s one of the better times Mercy has actually made it to her room. This time, Genji is waiting for her. Something that doesn’t occur often.

 Meetings ran throughout her entire day. Mercy is exhausted. A headache striking at her temple like a chisel determined to crack her skull. Her body tired and strained as she tries to find pajamas that aren’t weeks old in her closet.

She ends up with her black knit top, one of her softer shirts, with black shorts. The closet door is open, but Genji sits on her chair at her desk. It’s not in his view, but that’s not the main reason she keeps it open.

She trusts him, and doesn’t want to be apart from him. Keeping the closet door open out of grief of missing him is ridiculous, the doctor knows this, but still…

The closet door stays open.

 She finishes dressing, and comes back into her room. Genji’s visor flashes brightly, and even though she feels like passing out on the spot, she smiles.

“Come, Genji,” she beckons, moving to sit on bed. He stands quietly, moving soundlessly towards her. He sits beside her, angling his body towards her.

Crossing her legs underneath her, she faces him. Leaning forward, she kisses the side of his face plate gently.

“I’ve missed you.” She whispers, taking in the familiar smell of steel and musk. Reminding her senses of him.

“As have I,” his cool voice says.

The last two weeks he was on a highly classified mission for Overwatch. Nothing a doctor needs to worry about. He came back in one piece though, and she could breathe a little easier.

“Here,” Mercy says, just wanting to keep being near him. Gently, she takes his hands in her own. The metal digits easily overlapping hers, but it seems to be two puzzle pieces that fit together. Made for each other. He shifts, mirroring her sitting position on her bed. His visor glowing softly.

His knees touch her own exposed knees. The metal making her tremble in relief that he’s actually back. Still holding his hands, she begins rubbing the back of his palms with her thumbs. He has a weakness for this, she’s enjoyably found out. But he loves it best on his skin, his own skin.

For some time, they sit like this. Mercy’s eyes taking in his silver hands, like she hasn’t already memorized every detail on them. With her thumb rubbing, it doesn’t exhausted her. Feeling him makes her feel calm.

“Angela…” his smooth voice falters for a moment.

She looks up at him, puzzlement staining her features.


His visor is dim. He sits too still, rigid. Like he’s on another mission, just trying to stay alive.

“Genji?” His tense posture making her worry.

He finally moves, ducking his head slightly. She knows what this means. He’s afraid, but doesn’t want her to see. Or doesn’t want to watch her go.

Mercy wishes she could only make him know that she would stay right here with him forever if she could.

“What are you thinking,” Mercy gently presses. Her thumbs stop to squeeze his hands reassuringly.

He raises his visor an inch. “You are always so gentle and comforting to me. I would like to do the same to you.”

Mercy takes this in, a smile slowly forming.

“Genji, of course you can.” She says with a breathy laugh. It still amazes her how genuinely afraid he is of scaring her off.

As if that would ever happen.

 She loves reassuring him. She loves chasing away his dark thoughts. She loves letting him know that he has nothing to fear. She loves lifting him up.

Genji hesitates again, but Mercy waits patiently.

“May I touch your hair?” 

She squeezes his hands one more time. “Yes.”

 Moving slowly, she turns her body around. Her back faces him, and she looks at the head of her bed. Her lower back touching his legs.

Carefully, she pulls her ponytail out, letting her white gold hair fall to her shoulders. Letting her head tilt backwards, she closes her eyes, waiting for the familiar touch to make her soul come alive.

It’s one digit at first. It tucks a lock of hair behind her ears. She smiles at his needless caution, then frowns as his touch disappears.

“Please,” his smooth voice nearly begs, “Tell me if I hurt you.”

“I will.” Mercy promises. “But you won’t.”

There’s another pause, but soon cool fingers begin trailing from her scalp to her neck. Brushing through her hair slowly, touching her skin. It feels heavenly, calming, and loving. The last time she can really remember anyone playing with her hair was her mother.

Mercy’s heart pulses softly, knowing that Genji is the one touching her hair.

Sometimes he pick up locks, gently sliding the hair through his fingers. For seconds he’ll just rest his hand on her scalp, only to continue brushing through once again.

She shudders at his touch, and he stops.

“It feels really good,” She reassures him, staying still.

This time he doesn’t hesitate, spraying his fingers through her locks. The feeling of him so cool and gentle on her skin.

After some time, the head message begins to get to Mercy, for her head dips down as her eyes fight to stay open. Genji’s hands freeze at this.

“I’m sorry.” Mercy murmurs.

There’s a quiet pause, then gently, his hands touch her shoulders. She turns around to face him, his hands traveling gently down her arms to her own.

“You’re tired.” He says with a soft laugh. Oh his laugh is like rainfall. She wants to soak it all in.

“I know.” She admits. “But…”

She stops, wanting to know if she dares continue her sentence. She knows if she goes to bed, he’ll leave. He’s already been gone for so long.

“Angela?” Genji prompts.

She stares into his visor, wondering if she should speak.

“Please, you can tell me anything. I swear.” He promises.

She falters, before saying softly, “I don’t want you to go.”

He’s still for a long moment, and Mercy’s heart against her sternum.

“Then I will stay.” He answers simply, visor brightening.

The soft sigh that leaves her lips are that of relief. She twists, grabbing a pillow, and places it on Genji’s lap. He watches this, and she knows he’s smiling curiously at her behind his mask.

Shifting herself, she lays her body down on the mattress, slowly placing her head on his pillow covered lap.

“You can still play with my hair,” Mercy says, jaw rubbing against the pillow. “If you like.”

Genji’s fingers lower softly against her head. “I would love nothing more.”

Mercy only remembers his gentle touch against her hair, before she closes her eyes.

i just want Riley to go the subway station and find a guy who casually brings up his boyfriend or a girl who casually brings up her girlfriend and then just walks away, and then later Riley will probably ask Cory, Topanga, and then Maya because she never knew that was a choice… like, please, is that too much to ask?!?!

I just can’t grasp why people still want Lucas and Maya together after Ski Lodge

he was literally so awful to her in Ski Lodge part 2, not excepting her for who she truly is; someone who likes to “break the rules once in a while”while voicing his disapproval of her want of adventure in front of everyone, being pissy about Evan in front of her and not really caring if she was a bit upset that he was being jealous of Evan and prioritizing Riley in front of her yet again, and literally saying; “uhhhhhh” in the least infatuated voice ever when she tried to come on to him. (also don’t get me started on their arguing that Lucas doesn’t actually find cute anymore, and backs Riley up on the notion that they would argue too much to achieve anything, and literally says all of this to her face)–even in GM New Years Lucas agreed that Maya’s never said anything nice to him which is so not true.

like honestly speaking, Josh was way better to Maya in Ski Lodge than Lucas ever was, the only nice things Lucas has done for Maya over the course of 3 whole years is compliment her art and say he cares about her and wants her happy–and has only said these types of things in 2 separate episodes out of more than 3 years of knowing Maya, and supposedly “dating” her for a few weeks. (every other compliment after they started dating was either to even it up with Maya, or it was something that he directed towards both Riley and Maya)

While Josh has been giving sincere compliments about Maya’s capacity of love, how amazing of a friend she is (to which she asked him to say it again because it means so much to her that he’s the one who said it and she probably doesn’t hear it enough), how even if he is a few years older, he definitely needs a friend like Maya in his life, and doesn’t want her to not be in his life, and to top it all off, also being the first boy to actually tell her that he likes her back, which is something that she’s been dying to hear from Josh probably since GM game night in season 1 (which would mean for 2 years now).

Like if you guys can’t see that ever since Maya’s “turned” back to her true self, that she is much happier with Josh, then I don’t know what to tell you.

The triangle was dragged way too long and as much as i’m happy about rucas, i’m still mad at Lucas for how he treated both Riley and Maya–which is saying a lot because up until this point, Maya had been my least favorite character on GMW, but I feel like Maya needs more defending because people still want Lucas, who chose her best friend over her, to dump Riley and date Maya.

(but I can’t be too mad at Lucas cuz the boy literally had tears in his eyes and his voice was cracking when he was confessing to Riley which was hella cute)

Can I please share my Lucaya headcanons?


I love thinking about them so much and will now express my unhealthy amount of love for their relationship. Here we go:

  • First of all Lucas totally starts to play with Maya’s hair in class once they begin dating.
  • He’s been low key thinking about it ever since seventh gradeWhich shifted into high key in eighth
  • And became irresistible once they became an item because I actually can now
  • So yeah he can’t help himself
  • And Maya just carries on with her sarcastic comments because why wouldn’t Lucas be twirling her hair that’s how it’s supposed to be
  • Maya once told Lucas that she wanted to paint a portrait of himAnd Lucas thought that was oddly cliche and romantic of her but she’s an artist so whatevs
  • She spends an hour with her canvas carrying on casual banter with him as he sits on a stool smiling like the awkward tol pup that he is
  • And he’s like “Maya is it okay for me to be talking like should my mouth really be moving?” And she acts super offended like “Huckleberry who’s the artist here??? Is it you???I didn’t think so.”
  • So he drops the matter and picks up the banter
  • And eventually Maya beams at her canvas and announces “This is truly the greatest masterpiece I’ve ever created!!!” She even wipes at her eyes like she’s teary-eyed.
  • And he gets excited and runs over to see what she’s painted
  • Lucas desperately wants to be madBut it’s pretty freaking hilarious if he’s honest with himself
  • And honestly he had a really good time talking to her for the past hour
  • So he just tickles her
