#DragRace Season 9 Premieres March 24th at 8/7c now on @vh1!

My favorite types of romance novels are the ones that keep me interested despite the mundane things that might be happening in the background. In the current book I’m reading, the two main characters are in the middle of a card game, and while this may not normally seem like something interesting to read about, their upbeat and witty conversation makes you feel as if you’re there with them the entire time, and you find that you’re enjoying yourself as well. 

A touch of drama can be fun, but I always find that my favorite moments are when the mundane seem almost magical.

RETURN


Hearing the familiar pattern of footsteps reach the porch, you closed the book sitting in your hands and crossed the flat in seconds. Opening the door you smiled at the long blonde haired girl standing before you. “How’d hunting go?” you asked, stepping aside as she entered the living room.

She shrugged. “A few demons, and a crazed vampire,” she took off her coat, revealing cuts on her arms and shoulders from that night’s hunt.

You met the young hunter about two years ago, in fact, she was the first person to befriend you since stepping off the travel bus that you escaped home in. The town you now lived in wasn’t too close or far from your stepfather, and during your first night here, you thought it was still too close to home. But once you met Lisa in a small diner, you learned the town was filled with supernatural beings, and even had it’s own clan of hunters, except unlike your father, these hunters only rid of rotten creatures. Your flatmate was one of those hunters.

Currently, you kept quiet, a question forming in your mind that you’ve wanted to ask her for awhile now. “Lisa,” you murmured her name, and she turned.

“Hm? You okay?”

Nodding, you sat down on the couch with a huff, frowning. “Since you’re a hunter, I was wondering if you heard anything about my stepfather.”

Lisa sat next to you, knowing this was a sensitive topic. “Y/N, Agent Kim shut down your case last year.”

You nodded knowingly, staring into the hunter’s large eyes, worried. “He could still be out there.”

She shook your head. “I highly doubt it. You’ve been gone more than a year, I’m sure he’s given up by now. And with the way he treated you…” she trailed off for a moment. “Do you think he’s that determined?”

You scowled. “Let’s hope not.”

There was a beat of silence before Lisa spoke up, leaning her side against the back of the couch, legs tucked aside. “You’re planning on going back, aren’t you?”

Nodding, you muttered, “Yeah…I promised I’d return once I’ve taken responsibility for my life, and look, here I am…” You swung open your arms, gesturing around the flat. “I’ve finished my education, got a job at the bar — oh damn I’ll miss Irene…received Eomma’s money from her will, learned more about werewolves than I could imagine, grew into my own character, discovered how our world works……” you trailed off before smiling at Lisa and sighing. “And I’m gonna miss you guys the most. I’m so thankful you and Jennie guided me through it all.“

She grinned then pulled you into her embrace. “And we don’t ever regret bringing you in, and letting you stay here.”

You both laughed in each others arms, happy and content.


The next two weeks past by too quickly for your liking. You slowly packed, day by day, saying your goodbyes to everyone from work and even ran a quick visit to Agent Kim, thanking the vampire for closing your “missing” case in order to keep you safe and sound. Lastly, you said goodbye to Jennie and Lisa, tears were shed but you three had an amazing movie and girls night before your departure.

Now you drove through the forest in your own black car, using your heightened senses to watch for any signs of wolves or hunters nearby. It took you the entire day to get here, and to say you were nervous was an understatement.

You glanced at the instructions Detective Byun, another vampire in Agent Kim’s coven, wrote you. Since he, his mate Isuel, and Agent Kim had apparently been to NCT’s pack house before, you were relieved when he dropped by the flat to say goodbye and give you the instructions to your destination.

An array of emotions filled the pit of your stomach. Would they recognize me? Do they even remember me? Gosh it would be so awkward if they didn’t. But you were also a little excited to see everyone again.

The closer you got, the stronger an unfamiliar emotion filled your chest. It was longing, but happy and focused all at once. You didn’t recognize it as your own feelings, but then remembered learning how mates, if close enough, could grasp the general emotions of the other. You wondered if he could feel your own anxiety right now, and suppressed it just in case.

Finally, you arrived, recognizing the large house from before and drove into their large driveway. Parking, you turned off the engine and sat their for a minute, calming down, breathing in and out. Gathering all courage, you stepped out of the car and did your best to quietly close the door. You hesitated, staring at the trunk with all your necessities, but decided to grab those later.

The forest looked different in the fall then it did two springs ago. But the familiarity was welcoming, along with the scents of pine, soil, and fresh air.

Stepping up to the front door, you inhaled deeply before ringing the doorbell.

“I got it!” a young voice called out and you felt your heart skip a beat.

The lock clicked, the knob turned, and you looked away, all of a sudden shy. You swallowed.

“Y/N?”

Your head shot up at the sound of your name. There stood Eunjung, the warm, familiar smile spreading across her lips. “Hi,” you murmured awkwardly, fidgeting from foot to foot.

Silence filled the air for a heavy second, it felt almost too long, you just about turned away before she pulled you into her arms. “I can’t believe it,” she breathed in wonder before pulling you into the living room, eyes and hands giving you a full examination. “Look at you, you’ve grown, your complexion is healthier, cheeks have filled out, your hair’s shiny…” she went speechless, unable to contain the excited grin lighting up her face. “Oh goddess,” she couldn’t help but giggle and you found yourself laughing along with her, her bubbly mood easily affecting yours.

“I know, I know,” you chortled, happy to see her. “I look different.”

The older shook her head. “Not by much but you look so healthy compared to the night you left I just…” she laughed again and pulled you into another embrace. You remembered how motherly she treated you from before and hugged her tightly, not wanting to let go.

But alas she pulled away and that’s when you noticed the attire she wore. Instead of jeans and a shirt, she wore a flowy blouse tucked into an above the knee skirt, but her feet were bare, used to the floor of her home.

“Is there a special occasion going on?” you asked, gesturing to her clothes.

Eunjung chuckled and pulling you by the hand through the halls, she whispered, “It’s Hana’s eighteenth birthday today.”

You stopped her, a little shocked. “Oh no, I can’t interrupt the get together.”

But she just smiled sweetly and pulled you along. “She’ll be happy to see you, let’s call it a…surprise gift?”

This time, you used your wolf strength to pull her back, freezing her long strides towards the dinging room. “I can’t, really, I’d feel like I’m invading a private moment.”

She stopped, searching your face before sighing and reluctantly nodded. “You’re feeling that uncomfortable?”

“Yes.”

“Then how would you like your presence to be known?” She gave you a pointed look.

You laughed quietly. “How about tomorrow morning? I’d like to rest, really. It took five hours to drive down here.”

“Fine,” she smiled in understanding before pulling you in the opposite direction. “Where’d you come from? In fact, why don’t you give me a brief rundown on what you’ve been up to.”

“Can we go grab my things first? They’re in my car.”

You two quietly headed back out, then came back in with two boxes of personal belongings and climbed up the staircase, halting in front of the guest room.

“I’m glad you worked everything out,” Eunjung said as you finished filling her in. “I remember watching the news about them closing your case, and you met Agent Kim! He helped us rescue Jisung three years ago.”

You blinked. “What? Rescue Jisung? The youngest —”

But she quickly shushed you and opened the bedroom door. “That’s a story we’ll share with you for another time, right now, get your rest, I’ll bring some food up, that is if you’re hungry.”

“That would be lovely,” you sighed, realizing just how hungry the drive down made you, then snickered a little, remembering the first time you met Taeil’s mate. “Deja vu, huh?”

She shot you a mischievous grin. “Oh you bet.”

Lying atop the bedsheets, you were out like a light.


Once everyone had gone to bed, you woke up wanting a glass of water and to change your clothes. Grabbing your clothes from one of the boxes, you changed into a pair of sweats and a T-shirt before tossing your dirty clothes aside, mentally noting down to ask where the laundry was.

As silently as possible you crossed the room, recognizing the tray from last night’s dinner Eunjung had brought up sitting on the desk. You opened the door, crept out into the hall, down the staircase (a few steps creaked damn it), and maneuvered past the living room and the dining room, heading towards the kitchen.

The house was dark, all lights turned off, the only source of light came from the moon’s rays intruding through the windows. Unlike that evening, the rooms were silent, the only sounds you could here were the clocks ticking, a mouse scampering across the floor, and someone’s breathing.

Wait…

Freezing mid-action, senses on full alert, you tasted the air for any unwelcome strangers, and carefully observed your surroundings, turning slowly until you met with a pair of glowing, golden eyes in the shadows.

“You really are here.”

The voice was too familiar, one that clouded your mind on those days when you felt lonely. His face sometimes would appear in your dreams, as if your subconscious was calling to him, and now, here he was.

Your breath hitched as his silhouette stood from the coffee table to it’s full height, walking forwards until he stepped right in front of you, halting inches away, eyes going back to their normal dark brown. “Taeil mentioned your arrival.”

For a moment you couldn’t reply, just tipped your head back slightly to search his face for any give way emotions. What was he thinking? Was he angry? Disappointed? But all you could feel was the same as before; longing, deep, empty longing. His eyes were almost impassive, almost, only making his features sharper, skimming a point of intimidation, but the aura about him dissolved from it’s firm alpha hold, revealing a protective, but loving and tender man.

“Taeyong…I,” you felt words clog your throat, unable to look away. It was almost funny how much you didn’t know about him, how much you wanted to know about him, how much you yearned to reveal the past two years, only to go speechless when the opportunity came. Yet the only word you managed to whisper was, “Joesonghamnida.”

The tips of his mouth quirked upward knowingly, lips curving into a relieved smile. “I know.”

You’re not sure who leaned in first but his lips were on yours, warm and soft, delicate and gentle. A part of you couldn’t help but press against him, feeling him reciprocate and your back met the counter. Arms wrapped around his neck, you could feel his body heat seeping through your shirt, the pressure of his mouth, the shampoo from a recent shower, and the evident tang of wolf.

The kiss turned passionate, impatient, longing, but content, and you couldn’t help but emit a sigh in relief. He was here in your arms, physically and spiritually here, it wasn’t a dream anymore.

Minutes later you both pulled away, catching your breath, foreheads meeting, just basking in each other’s scent. “Two years is too long,” you heard him whisper and felt him press a kiss against your forehead.

“But I don’t regret leaving,” you muttered in reply. “I’m safe now.” You enveloped him in an embrace, face pressing into his shoulder.

“No more running?” he inquired, feeling him run a hand up your back, gently tangling his fingers in your hair.

You hummed a reply and felt him sag in relief. After a moment you felt yourself beginning to doze off. “Taeyong.”

“Hm?”

“I’m falling asleep.”

“Why were you up?”

You both chortled at his words and you pulled away, but immediately missed the warmth of his embrace. “Water. I came down to find water.”

“Ah I’ll get that.” Taeyong headed toward one of the cabinets, pulled a glass out and filled it with water. “Well,” he muttered. “I must’ve distracted ya.”

Laughing quietly, you took the glass from him and downed it quickly. “You really did,” you teased.

Whatta reunion, I’m getting emotional these two are just too freaking sweet for me (yet again I’m the one that wrote it lmao)!

Nine and Lisa arguing

A.K.A -When Nine and Lisa make Twelve look like the mature one of the trio.

DTP Foundations Week #24

Week 24 of the deductionist training program.

Mnemonics #2.

Level: Intermediate.


Mnemonics #2 - Organisation:

So what can you deduce about me detective?” JM asks. You try to remember some of the signs for the “Big Five” personality traits.

You remember it like this:

To be efficient in mnemonics you need to organise what you memorise. This is something I think most have a problem with in mnemonics (I’ve never seen anyone do this in a good way). They tend to organise via rooms in their memory palace, and that’s okay but you can’t really do that efficiently with small lists you need to memorise, or even big lists. You would waste space in your palace. So this technique is what you always should utilise when using mnemonics. Sortation with the palace should only be done when you have a room for a specific topic.

I associate organising of mnemonics with an article in a newspaper. You have the headline, the subheads and the content. Remember this for later.

First, visualise this:

An aquarium which is like an OCEAN (An acronym for the big five, if you haven’t read about the big five look for my post called “Big Five”). But we need a picture for every trait because we want to organise this the best we can.

So remember these with the linking method (which we talked about last week):

      1. Openness to experience - Visualise a roller coaster.

      2. Conscientiousness - Visualise a filing-cabinet falling down and crushes the rollercoaster.

      3. Extraversion - Visualise a party hat that forces itself to be on the filing-cabinet.

      4. Agreeableness - Visualise two hands doing a handshake exactly over the party hat.

      5. Neuroticism - A shaking skeleton that shakes on the shaking hands.

Remember the newspaper article? Now we want to organise the OCEAN picture to be the headline and the traits to be the subheads and then the signs to be the content (more on that later).


So do this:

Link the aquarium (OCEAN) with the roller coaster (Openness to experience).

This you do a particular way:

Every time you make a connection between a headline and a subhead or a headline and content or subhead and content you should make the code for the headline big, the code for the subhead medium/small and the code for the content small. This will be zoomed in later.

So visualise the aquarium(OCEAN) quite big and the roller coaster(Openness to experience) as a small ornament inside the aquarium. When you have seen the aquarium as a big picture and the roller coaster as a small picture you should zoom in on the roller coaster and see every subhead as the same size. So all in the same category should be the same size.

Now we shall memorise the signs so that we can deduce what personality traits someone has.

The signs of openness to experience - Rollercoaster:

  • Colourful clothes - Clown clothes.
  • The shoes have strong colours - Neon shoes.

Now you are going to make a connection with the roller coaster (openness to experience) and the clown clothes (colourful clothes). The roller coaster is a subhead and the clown clothes are the content, so the roller coaster is going to be a big picture and the clown clothes are going to be a small picture.

Visualise the roller coaster and visualise the clown clothes to be small as doll clothes in one of the seats of the roller coaster. Now you zoom in on the clown clothes and see neon shoes as big as the clothes but inside them. The clothes later fall apart and reveal the shoes.

Now you should know how to connect these different pictures, so I’ll give you the coding and the size of the picture but you’ll need to connect them yourself.


The signs for conscientiousness - File cabinet (Medium):

  • Formal clothes - A suit (Small but the filing-cabinet is big compared to the suit)
  • Clean shoes that are in good condition - Cinderella’s glass shoes (Small but is the same size as the suit)

The signs for extraversion - Party hat (Medium but is the same size as the filing-cabinet):

  • Stylish external - A king’s crown (Small)
  • Friendly facial expressions - Smiley face (Small)
  • Confident facial expressions - Sunglasses (Small)
  • Smiles a lot - Smiley with botox in the cheeks so that it stays smiling (Small)
  • Relaxed gait - Ragdoll (Small)
  • Swinging arms when walking - Robots arms that are spinning (Small)
  • Loud and powerful voice - Megaphone (Small)
  • Good eye contact - Creepy old portrait (Small)
  • Lift their feet when walking - Boot with a spring under it (Small)
  • Shoes have lots of colours and the colours are strong - Clown shoes (Small)


The signs for agreeableness - Handshake (Medium)

  • Soft facial features - Faceless round face (Small)
  • Friendly facial expressions - Mona Lisa (Small)
  • The shoes are practical, non- pointy, affordable and no visible brands - Shoes made of clouds (Small)


The signs for neuroticism - Shaking skeleton (Medium)

  • Dark clothes - Dracula (Small)
  • Pointy shoes and high heels - High heels (Small)

Like with everything, you’ll need to recall this now and then to remember it.


So just to be overly clear. The category of what you are memorising is the headline (in other words OCEAN or the Big Five is the headline) and has the size “BIG” relative to “MEDIUM” and “SMALL”.

The subcategories in the category are the subheads (in other words the five traits, like “openness to experience”, “conscientiousness“, “extraversion” and so on. These are the subheads) and have the size “MEDIUM” relative to “BIG” and “SMALL”.

The signs, in this case, are the content and have the size “SMALL” relative to “BIG” and “MEDIUM”.

So:

OCEAN - headline - BIG

Openness to experience - subhead - MEDIUM

  • Sign - content - SMALL
  • Sign - content - SMALL

Conscientiousness - subhead - MEDIUM

  • Sign - content - SMALL 
  • Sign - content - SMALL

Extraversion - subhead - MEDIUM

  • Sign - content - SMALL
  • Sign - content - SMALL
  • Sign - content - SMALL 
  • Sign - content - SMALL 
  • Sign - content - SMALL 
  • Sign - content - SMALL 
  • Sign - content - SMALL 
  • Sign - content - SMALL 
  • Sign - content - SMALL 
  • Sign - content - SMALL

Agreeableness - subhead - MEDIUM

  • Sign - content - SMALL
  • Sign - content - SMALL 
  • Sign - content - SMALL

Neuroticism - subhead - MEDIUM

  • Sign - content - SMALL
  • Sign - content - SMALL



You notice that JM have formal clothes and clean shoes that are in good condition, so you tell him that he scores high on the personality trait conscientiousness, he confirms your suspicion.


And with that, I’ll see you my irregulars.
