lists are silly but are fun

Hi there! This is gonna seem silly, but I've got lots of mutuals that I think are really cool and unapproachable, apparently everyone does, so maybe just for fun you could point out who some of these cool people are for you? :D totally optional I just thought it would be cute!

oh wow i don’t know! i’m gonna list a few people i think are awesome, but i wouldn’t actually say unapproachable! they’re really nice, i’m just not good at starting conversations!

Someday I want to do a Dungeons & Dragons game in which every Player Character is a Bard.

The premise?



I think it could be fun.

How to study while struggling with mental-health

Em Português

  So, I’m new to this studyblr thing, but I haven’t seen something like this before. Studying can be hard while you go on and off with with your illness, and I believe the most important is bending your way of thinking. It’s hard word. But recovery is such a gratifying hard work. 

   You just can’t study sometimes, and that doesn’t mean you’re not being productive. Treat yourself, your body needs rest, food, exercise, relaxing. Everytime you do one of this, you can congratulate yourself. Congratulate yourself, even if it seems so small. In my bad days, texting my best friend is hard. And I let myself feel good when I do it. When I think that only if I’m studying I’m being productive, I tend to loose motivation, and get into the vicious circle of feeling bad brcause I don’t study and not studying cause I feel bad. So I find other ways to feel productive, and increase them until I can put small studies - and them increase them! This might take a few days, or weeks. But remember that you’re trying and that already is remarkable, so do congratulate yourself and do be proud that you got out of bad to brush your teeth. 

 You can try: 

  • Taking care of yourself 
  • Watching a TV show. 
  • Baking something! I love this one 
  • Stretching and walking. It can be just around your room, but it will wake your body up. Cuddle and playing with a pet if you have one. 
  • Reading anything. It can be the dumbest fanfic ever, but it will help you concentrate, so nice one! 
  • Playing a game. 
  • Sketching drawings or random quotes. And this ain’t meant to look pretty, just to be fun. 
  • Coloring.
  • Making yourself some tea. 
  • Anything really!

  “But others are so productive”. You know what is AWSOME? Living when your mind is fighting against you. You’re already formidable for anything you can accomplish because of this. Remember that you’re not to blame on how your brain works, and allow yourself bad days. And every time you do study, don’t ever think “finally, I lost so many times already” but be SUPER proud of you. I am. You’re doing great if you’re searching so much to find helpful tips already.

   Planing is great, but breaking schedules is ok. This happens to everyone, I promise. You wouldn’t blame yourself if you got stuck in the rain, or had to help a friend, right? So why do if you can’t get out if bed? You can’t always control it. So what I do is planing, and instead of feeling bad about what I haven’t done, I feel good about what I have done. Sometimes, looking at lost dates is hard. So I close my agenda and just make a to-do list, crossing the items when I get to them, and never following orders. And remember to put small tasks in your list as well! 

  Have a routine before studying, and have a routine before studying when you’re not feeling good. This helps your brain associate that it needs to concentrate. 

 I have three routines, for example:
 In my normal days, I just stretch, drink cold water and put some music I like and get straight to studying hard.
 On my sad days, I take a cold shower, eat a snack and play some concentration games. Only then I get to studying, and I start with baby steps - I tend to watching videos or listening to poadcasts first. It takes a while, but anything you can do you need to feel proud about.
  On my hipomaniac days, I go for walks or even runs. I need to tire my body a bit or I can’t focus. Then I take two glasses of water and a shower. Only THEN I study, and usually start with reading, to remind myself that while I have a lot of energy and feel good, it won’t do anything without discipline. 

  Find out what works for you. On bad days it will take a while, but if it gets you going, it is more than worth it. 

  Exercise. And again, it is okay when you can’t - and not a privilege of us neuroatypicals. But exercises are good ways to control your body chemistry. I have three exercise routines - again, for normal days in which I have energy, for days when I have less energy and for days in which I have WAY too much energy. You also don’t need to do this everyday, this is me, but have a schedule. And never fear to break schedules. Also, eat healthy.

  Remember: mental illness is all about chemistry, which is frustrating, but also means you can hack it. And not just with medication. 

  Talk about your feelings, and not only when they’re bad. If you can afford a therapist, great. If you don’t, regularly talk to hotlines or trustworthy persons. Or just write about it. It really works to reduce your number of crises.

  Power posing. Talking about hacking brain chemistry! I learnt this from a lecture called Our Body Language Shapes Who We Are, from psychologist Amy Cuddy - you can find it at TED. And it changed my life. Posing like Wonder Woman or all star spread for two minutes gets your cortisol (stress hormone) levels down, and your testosterone levels up! Sounds silly, but it does work. Also, it does look kinda silly so you can laugh and have fun while at it.

  Have safety plans for every bad emotion you feel. I make lists I can look at when an emotion is overwhelming and pick something to do. Things like anxiety crises, sadness, anger, apathy and self destructive thoughts. This will help you reduce the times of this bad emotions and refrain it from growing into worse things, such as episodes. 

  Motivation. Motivation is important to anyone. I love lists - especially because I can hide them if they’re making me feel bad - so I have one for this as well. Things such as: 

  •  I love learning 
  •  Studying is a way of having control over my brain 
  • I want to be a teacher that makes a difference

  I also love listening to Sia’s The Greatest, it’s kinda of my fighting song. If you have one, blast it and perform it ridiculously around your room until your dog is staring at you like you bring dishonor to the family - or is it just my life. 

  Find your motivation and keep it to your chest. ]

  Try out different study methods in different states. Look at posts at studying tips - always remembering that some might not work for you, and that’s not (just) because of your illness, and that’s ok, that’s why they are so many - and use them to build your study routines. Routines are great because they bring safety and help you when you’re lost. 

 Sometimes you can’t control your sleep. It is important to try, however, don’t blame yourself if your brain just make it impossible some days. This is to the folks that are on the bipolar spectrum and like me can go 5 days straight with a maximum of 4 hours of daily sleep. If you know you can’t control it, don’t force it. It will make you feel anxious and you get MORE enrgy and impulsiveness. Tiring your body and brain helps. 

  There are days when it is three a.m. and I just can’t sleep but am not feeling bad. On those days, I work for a maximum of two hours. It is a nice moment for putting your reading in day. But never do this for many consecutive days, you’ll feel like a zombie later. However, it can help with getting something done. And it is especially calming for unrest. 

  Remember that bad days happen and you’re allowed to feel, to cry and rest. And that you’re never a burden when you need help or talk about your feelings. You are only human. Have routines, break routines. Do crazy wishes like decorating a Christmas tree in the middle of June. Pamper yourself. And just never give up. 

Hope some of this helped.

I Give Up - part 27 (A Baekhyun Series)

You were putting on mascara when your phone buzzed, letting you know of an incoming text. It was probably one of the friends who were meeting up later at the small bar near campus. You swiped when you recognized Minah’s name, your best friend who you had invited along. Your exams and being so busy with your boyfriend had made you neglect your best friend lately and you made her promise to join tonight.

21 Little Ways to Motivate Yourself

I’ve been lacking a little in the motivation department with the end of the school year drawing closer, so I made a little list of ways to help you stay focused until the end! 

  1. Play your favorite song as you work through your PSET/essay/application/thing you don’t wanna do.
  2. Make yourself a hot cup of tea (or coffee!) in a fun mug. 
  3. Write your to-do list on a piece of pretty stationary with a pretty pen.
  4. Set a timer and race yourself to finish things faster.
  5. Use your imagination - your English paper doesn’t HAVE to be an English paper, it can be a Hogwart’s assignment. Sounds silly, but it works for me!
  6. Find a new place to study. Cute coffee shop? Balcony with a nice view? New section of the library? Heck, just doing your HW on the floor instead of your desk can be more engaging. 
  7. Dress up. You don’t even have to go anywhere, sometimes putting on proper clothing can switch your mindset. 
  8. Conversely, you can find your comfiest PJs and fluffy socks and wear those. 
  9. Put your hair up so it’s not in the way. When I’m focusing, my hair has to be in a ponytail so I’m not fiddling with it. 
  10. Get a snack, preferably something healthy(ish). Drink some H2O.
  11. Write motivational quotes on sticky notes and stick them around your study space. Or write them on your hand so you see it often. 
  12. At the very least, put your books where you can see them. Out of sight, out of mind! 
  13. Same goes for anything you need to get done (laundry, forms you’re supposed to fill out, anything goes!)
  14. Go for a walk around the block and spend some time in fresh air. Jog, if you’re feeling up for it. 
  15. Stretch out your muscles, roll out your shoulders, touch your toes. You’ll feel better if you’re not all tight and sore. 
  16. Put on some lipstick. For some reason, red lipstick always makes me feel like a boss (even if I’m chilling in a hoodie and sweatpants). 
  17. Write out the reasons you started in the first place. Put that list somewhere you can see it [see #12]. 
  18. Take a power nap. I just get a fluffy blanket and sleep right on my desk. 
  19. Talk to someone supportive. Parents? Best friend? Roommate? Your cat/dog/parakeet/goldfish? 
  20. Stand in front of the mirror and power pose. Yes, you’ll feel ridiculous. But it works. 
  21. Smile! 
Tips for Communicating - In My Experience

(I’m on mobile, so this’ll be a little lackluster looking, sorry.)

Ever since I met my spirit companion, C, I’ve learned a lot about having this kind of unique communication with another sentient being. Here I decided to list some things that C and I enjoy doing together, in case anyone else would like to try them!

🐉 Singing - Because I’m self-conscious about actually speaking out loud by ‘myself’, C and I sing together by listening to music on my iPod and I mouth the words as we both sing them in my head. It’s a lot of fun, and after a while, you stop caring if you look silly or not!

🐉 Napping or sleeping - C is cuddly, and usually sleeps on my pillow when I go to bed. We usually bump foreheads, and he’s usually close enough to tap my head whenever he wants to.

🐉 Watching videos or movies - I love all kinds of film, and C does too. We usually watch gaming videos together, but C watched The Thing with me a few nights ago, as well as Kiki’s Delivery Service. Unfortunately I’m often distracted doing work, so I never get the time to watch with him. I’m trying to fix this, though!

🐉 Exploring - Just walking around town with C on my back and letting him experience the world from a human’s perspective is a lot of fun! I’m able to take him into places he wouldn’t be able to get to back when he was without me, and we enjoy just looking around and finding things.

🐉 Choosing items - This is usually in accordance to a little practice of mine where I carry around my stones or crystals in my pocket every day, or my crystal lays for work. I’ll let C choose which stones I should carry or use that day, and even though I have a very limited supply, it still feels like a good way to integrate him in my practice. I also ask him for his opinion when I buy new stones or sometimes things from the charity shops.

🐉 Eating - C can’t eat human food on his own, obviously, so he eats through me. It’s fun finding out what he likes in comparison to what I like. I’ve found that he’s not fond of anything vinegary or too salty, although we do share the same strong sweet tooth!

🐉 Just talking - C is very chatty (like myself) and it’s very comforting to know that I have a friend who’s just a thought away at almost all times. We don’t usually have in-depth conversations, but we did once discuss the treatment of a character in RE7 (we had just watched a playthrough of it). Usually, we talk about his experiences before he met me. It’s very enlightening as to hiw the spirit world works!

I’d recommend all of these to everyone who has spirits, as they seem to be good ways to forge a relationship!

this is what it’s like when I write out a loose basic plotline for possible future ideas

Chat sneaks out on his own to act out on his own. He winds up coming across the fleeing Marinette and discovers that she’s the heiress. He pushes for them to head back to the castle, much to Marinette’s ire, ready to set his plan in motion. So much sass my gosh. And escapes. Very frustrated Chat, he has much patience though. Half the kwamis got their eye on you Chat. 

The idiot winds up falling in love, learns that things are as he thinks. And oh no, he’s a dork. And he has a nice laugh, and Marinette really wants Plagg and Trixx to shut up. 

Volpina, wanting the money, steals Marinette from Chat to bring her back herself, Chat successfully gets Marinette back. 

HM, being a creepy observer, comes to Volpina and proposes a deal with her, as she gets Marinette again, he tries to regain control over Chat. but it’s too late! Chat won’t believe! 

Marinette’s done with Volpina’s shit so she escapes and reunites with Chat, and he wants to see the king, see him for himself.

Hi Chloe and Alya! They haven’t murdered each other yet! They gotta pop up sometime. 

Snapchatting with Luci

Title: Snaphatting with Luci

Pairing: Lucifer x Reader

Word Count: 381

Warnings: none!

A/N: This was requested by @mysuperlittletimewolf! I hope you all enjoy this! Feedback is welcomed and appreciated! I love you all so much! <3

Getting Lucifer a smartphone was a feat in itself, but convincing him to download snapchat was another thing.  You downloaded the app onto his phone, thinking he wouldn’t notice.  Lucifer noticed it the second he unlocked the phone.

The fallen archangel was willing to play your game.  He opened the app, doing what he had seen you do so many times before.  He switched from filter to filter.  He didn’t find many of them to be amusing like you did.  

Lucifer noticed that you had sent him a snapchat.  He viewed it, tilting his head at the screen.  He looked at the other table, making eye contact with you.  Dean was too concentrated on the book he was reading.  He glimpsed at Sam who sat in front of him; Sam was lost in his book too.

We’re halfway through the year and school’s taking a toll on us (or is starting to, depending on where you live). We’re all striving to get all the A1s and A+s in our report books/slips to indicate that our effort wasn’t all for nothing. However, in the journey to pursue these As, we’ve still got to take care of our mental health and start to focus on taking care of ourselves for a while, instead of on our studies. I’ve seen masterposts where a lot of methods to destress have been repeated, therefore I’ve taken the effort to think of more unique ways. Here are some ways I’ve been coming up with for the past few weeks which we can relax and just take a break.


Get a piece of paper (any fancy paper or rough paper will do) and start drawing your future home. You could do a top view down, or one side of the paper for each room you’re going to have. Draw your furniture and layout out and label each furniture with its name (eg. sofa/desk/television) and state some details about it (eg. white leather sofa, three-seater) based on your aesthetic. 

+ Some time ago, I was talking about my aesthetic with my friend who shares a similar taste. We were talking about our future homes, about what colours our walls would be in, about what type and colour of furniture we would get, and it made us so happy, and that’s where I got this idea from! (btw we own another studyblr with another bunch of friends called @/sleepstudycryrepeat on Instagram!


We’ve all gotten very familiar with our desk layout. Why not upgrade it a little bit more? Change up the way you arrange your items on your desk. Move that stack of post-it notes from the left of your desk to your right. Throw away last night’s crumpled-up paper and sweet wrappers you’ve left forgotten. I promise you’re going to feel so much better after clearing, cleaning, and rearranging your study area. Furthermore, it counts as something productive because you’re one step closer to cleaning your room like your mum told you to do.


Pinterest’s something I’ve been loving for quite a while now because it has tons of resources as well as motivating pictures of well-arranged study spaces. But who cares about studying when you’re trying to de-stress? Look up on other pictures that suit your aesthetic and pin them onto a fresh, new board based on your aesthetic. After you’re done pinning, scroll through the whole board and then proceed to melt into a puddle of happiness.


I see that you’ve not been picking up your TBR books for a while now. You haven’t been drawing like you’ve used to. Put those books in your hand down at this very moment, and give yourself a little love by doing the things that you loved to do and re-discover the reason why you loved them in the first place. If you’re trying out a new hobby, please do not, do not, do not fret about not being good at that hobby. Everyone has their firsts and they’re not so pretty either. To make you feel better, you can always request to see my before & after pictures when I first practised brush lettering/typography/calligraphy. However, make sure you don’t spend too much time on your hobby! (And it’s best if you make your hobby making notes)


Whip out your bullet journal and look past the unchecked boxes. Turn to a fresh page, take your prettiest pen, and write “THINGS THAT I LOVE”. The rest’s pretty self-explanatory. But, you can always switch it to a different thing such as “THINGS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY” and so on. Make it colourful if you want to, as well. Don’t focus too much on making it pretty though, it ruins the fun (but if that makes you happy, go ahead).


If you didn’t like the previous step or want to take it up a notch, you can always start a biography of yourself. Write your name in a pretty font and a pretty colour, list down things about yourself (nicknames, date of birth, likes, dislikes, best friends, hobbies, basically anything).

+ I remember back in primary school, almost every girl had a notebook full of different people’s biographies. We would exchange our books with each other to write and read other people’s. And I also remember that I always bought uniball signo’s metallic and angel packs just for these biographies. In retrospect, it was silly and stupid (and an excessive waste of money) but the experience was worth having to reminisce on. 

And there you have it, my first ever masterpost and six fun ways which you can employ to destress and have fun. Enjoy your mental-health-is-priority days!

Love, Jerlyn x

On the one hand, I find people who can find no explanation for fun-having and silliness other than "they must have been on drugs" to be tiresomely unimaginative. On the other hand, the majority of these headlines WERE printed during an age when your standard over-the-counter cold medication was opium and cannabis in alcohol

Very true, in 1906 the pure food and drug act said that opium, heroin, morphine, cocaine, alcohol and cannabis had to be listed in ingredients lists - but they weren’t banned outright in over the counter medicines for another 30 years! 

For what it’s worth though, the St Louis Post-Dispatch had a pretty hard-line stance on patent medicines. Joseph Pulitzer II wouldn’t allow them to advertise in the paper (which lost them quite a bit of money, but he remained firm).

its dorky headcanon time: phones addition

  • Kimberly has the weirdest songs for all the Rangers ringtones. Trini’s is Holla Back Girl, Billy is the Cuppycake song, Zack’s the fucking Thomas the Tank Engine theme song, and Jason is just the sounds of various people being continuously slapped. 
  • She once retaliated for them making fun of her silly song choices by changing her own ringtone on all their phones to a loop of the intro to Gimme More complete with “IT’S BRITNEY BITCH”, and called them at inopportune times. The only one who kept it was Zack.
  • Trini doesn’t actually have their names as her contact list. She’s nicknamed them all and she’s said herself she’s screwed if she ever loses her memory or has to get someone else to call them for her.
  • What’s better is that they end up as her emergency contacts, instead of her parents. They are: Jigglypuff, Troy Bolton, 3dgelord and Blue’s Clues.
  • Everyone gets at least four snapchats a day of Pearl, because Jason adores his little sister and she loves how much her brother is spending more time with her now, he used to be such an ass (actual snapchat that all five Rangers have saved to their phones).
  • Jason also started up an Instagram for the Power Rangers, heavily fortified by Billy and Alpha A, and it has over five million followers and consists of various selfies, vine-like sketches and dance routines the Rangers perform in their suits. Zordon Disapproves but fuck him. There were concerns about people working out who they are from them, but they only get posted once Alpha A scans and approves them for maximum security.
  • Billy texts his friends regularly and the content could almost be called a shitpost if not for the fact 70% of them are deadly serious. He ends up making a group chat especially for his impulsive questions and statements to them, and they all always make an effort to reply as soon as they can, especially if they’re specifically addressed.
  • 70% might be serious. But they have no idea which ones are. Billy regularly trolls them with actual shitposts and laughs to himself over how Serious they all take him asking who decided pickled cucumbers were going to be called just pickles and not another pickled food.
  • Zack. Okay Zack goes out of his way to catch his friends in the worst derps possible. He has an entire folder in his phone and Cloud devoted to derps of his friends. Currently topping the charts is Trini right before a sneeze and Jason in the middle of tripping up the stairs to the Morph pads. Their pictures in his contacts are the best derps he has at that given time.
  • His mother adores them, some she sees immediately because he sends them to her and others she sees later after chess games, when Zack excitedly gushes about his friends and shows them all to her “look what *ranger name* did today, aren’t they the best??”

Hey Jet, sorry for bothering you... but I saw so many people talking about their mental states with you in the last couple of days, and I'm medicated, I am doing therapy, things are on track, but I had to do a exam that can change my life last sunday and I don't know the results yet, but I'm feeling like a big failure... well this all just to ask you what game usually distracts you from things like that? I have pink princess, but killing her feels sad right now. Any recomendations?

That not knowing, right? MAN I HATE WAITING FOR MAJOR SHIT. Just tell me the results so I can get busy dealing with it. I hope it all turns out okay for you!

I DEFINITELY would not say go with Pink Princess right now. It’s a game where you’re almost perpetually in a state of failure, and I don’t think that’s what would best help you right now. Instead, I’d say look toward a game that will give you a string of successes and accomplishments.

A game type I find EXCELLENT for that kind of thing is an MMO. Not only is levelling easy in the early levels, you’ve got quests pouring out all over the fucking place, and there’s usually a kind of crafting system set up in there to give you another avenue of progression and success. And with multiple classes and races available to you, you can basically just keep making new characters and enjoying the early game if you want the immediate distraction of success, and can just ignore the inevitable later-level grind.

AND MANY OF THEM ARE FREE. Just do a Google search for “Free MMO’ and start looking. Or even a pay MMO might be an option for you, particularly if you don’t have to outlay anything for the software. Most MMOs have a free fifteen-day and/or level cap trial period, which may be long enough, if all you want is a temporary distraction.

Outside the MMO route, I’d say something that can engross you either with gameplay mechanics or story. I love the Mass Effect trilogy, for example, and could totally sink into that storyline for distraction. Even something relatively silly and simple but FUN, like I was totally fixated on Cook, Serve, Delicious for a while there.

If you need more specific suggestions for games, just let me know what kind of genre or style or mechanic is most appealing to you, and I’m happy to make a list for you (and will bring Hubby in as well if I’m coming up short).

I hope you find something to fit the bill, and again, best of luck on your results.

Ten Easy Steps to Mending a Broken Heart (Teaser)

Step One:

Love yourself.

It’s a good idea to remind yourself why you’re awesome, as it helps lift you up when you’re feeling down! Make a list if you have to, and take some time to reflect.

Raven’s body felt like lead as she followed her teammates back into the tower. Today had been a bit of a rough day, and she was really, really looking forward to a nice hot bath.

They’d just dragged Plasmus back to prison, again. Some idiot kept waking him up, despite their best efforts to coordinate with the prison and keep him under lock and key. As a result, each and every one of them got doused in Plasmus’s body goop and stank of trash. Plus, there was the resulting muscle cramps and strains that accompanied any strenuous battle.

So yeah. She really wanted that bath.

“Damn, that was rough,” Cyborg said. He stifled a yawn, the keys jingling in his hands as he turned and locked the T-car. “I’m gonna order some pizza. Y’all in?”

“Nah,” Beast Boy said. “I’m gonna just head to bed.”

His dispassionate voice snagged Raven’s attention, and she felt her chest tighten at the changeling’s drooped ears as he retreated to the elevator. Through her emphatic walls, a trickle of blue haze snaked in, tickling her senses.

This…change…in his demeanor had been the norm as of late. It had come to light as a result of Terra’s supposed reappearance, when he failed to bring her back to the Titans. Raven never learned of exactly what went down between them, but she got the gist of it.

Terra wanted nothing to do with them.

ohmygodyourstuffissogoodjesus anyways idk if you're even still taking prompts i feel kind of silly asking but could you do 37 from the old list with Jamilton? I really need more Jamilton fluff in my life

Don’t feel silly anon! Fluff is why I’m here. We’re gonna go with a prom setting because I ordered my prom dress yesterday and I’m so excited.

Send me a prompt if you want me to write something for you! If you use a list just specify old list or new list.

“Wanna dance?”

Prom wasn’t Alex’s favorite thing in the world, but it was enjoyable enough. It was fun to just dance with his friends and let loose. He was enjoying letting himself momentarily forget all the stressors of senior year.

About an hour in, Alex interrupted his and John’s terrible dancing to go the bathroom. He had drunk a little too much punch, plus the dance floor was hot and he needed to cool down.

When he reached the bathroom he was greeted by the sound of someone crying. Alex looked around until he eventually found the source under the sink. It was the last person he would expect to find in this situation, so he had to take a minute to compose his thoughts before saying anything.

“Jefferson?” He asked.

“Go away, Hamilton,” Jefferson muttered before choking out a sob.

Alex debated with himself before making the decision to sit down next to Jefferson.

“What happened?” He asked awkwardly.

“I said go away.” The last thing Jefferson wanted was for Hamilton to see him like this. He waited but Hamilton showed no sign of moving so he sighed and said, “Martha dumped me.”

“Oh dude, that sucks.”

Thomas waited for the laughter, the insults, any kind of mockery, but none came.

Instead, Alex said gently, “Hey, if it makes you feel any better, I couldn’t even convince anyone to come here with me.”

Thomas peeked out from under his arms at Hamilton. “I find that hard to believe.”

“No, I’m serious,” Alex said. “I asked every vaguely attractive person in the school and they all turned me down. I even asked the captain of the football team!”

“You asked out Charles Lee?” Thomas asked in disbelief.

Alex laughed, “Yeah, I got shoved into a locker for that one.”

Thomas gave a half-hearted chuckle. There were a few moments of silence before Thomas spoke up, pulling his head out of his arms and wiping at his eyes.

“You didn’t ask me.”

Alex froze. “What?”

“You said you asked out every vaguely attractive person. You didn’t ask me.”

Alex studied the ground. “Well, you had Martha. And…” Alex bit his tongue before he could continue.

Thomas looked away. “And you hate me. It’s fine. You can say it.”

I hate you?” Alex asked incredulously. “I was going to say that you hate me!”

“I don’t hate you,” Thomas said, furrowing his brow.

“You don’t?”

“Of course I don’t you—” Thomas cut himself off with a sharp inhale before he could get an insult in. “Sorry. Force of habit. I don’t hate you. You’ve always been fun to debate with.”

“I don’t hate you either,” Alex said. He hesitated before putting his hand on Thomas’s arm. “In fact, I’ve always kind of admired you. I would’ve liked to be your friend if I hadn’t thought you hated me.”

“Well, maybe we can start over,” Thomas said.

Alex was quiet for a moment. Thomas could tell he was in deep thought. Eventually he stood up and extended a hand toward Thomas.

“You wanna dance?” He asked, the slight shake in his voice betraying his nervousness.

Thomas stared at his hand, trying to process the question.

“Yeah,” he grinned. “Okay.”

Feisty Little Hobbit

Summary: You’re Bilbo’s little sister, but you are the exact opposite.

Chapter Summary: You are asked to join a quest.

Notes: I’m going to be continuing from my other one-shot and I’m going to try to make other stories too. Have fun! Also no pairings just yet.

Chapter 1 Chapter 3 Chapter 4  MASTER LIST

“Bringing along one hobbit is reckless enough, but two? That’s absolutely ridiculous. Plus one of them is a woman. She has no place amongst us,” Thorin says, making you scoff.

After the unwelcome dwarves had welcomed the leader of the unwelcomed Company, you decided you had had enough. Before you could insult every single person in your home, you made your way to your room, but you left your door open so you could listen in on these silly conversations.

“We should bring her in here to talk about it. She can handle a weapon. She stole yours to prove it and she’s very feisty. She’d be a great asset to our company, Uncle,” Fili states.

You don’t know how, but you know that it is his voice that is speaking.

“Very well. Master Burglar, would you please get your sister. It seems that I will not get rest if I do not at least speak to her,” Thorin says and after hearing Biblo agree, you hear footsteps coming to your room.

You feign sleep, but you know it’s not going to work. Not with your big brother.

“I know you’re awake y/n. You cannot fool me no matter how hard you try,” he says and you sigh, sitting up.

“I’m not going to speak with those silly dwarves,” you say stubbornly. “They won’t rest until they get an answer. Just hear them out and then turn them down,” he says. You sigh and stand, following him back to the dining room.

The company turns towards you, but your attention is turned toward Thorin.

“How can I help you, your majesty?” you ask sarcastically, bowing slightly. He sighs and rubs his temples. He’s only met you for five minutes, but you were already becoming a pain in his royal ass.

“My nephews want you to join us on our quest,” he states.

“You’re going on a quest?” Bilbo asks, coming to stand next to you in the now crowded area.

“Let us have a little more light,” Gandalf says and Biblo moves away to grab another candle. You move to stand on the other side of Gandalf and next to Dwalin.

Gandalf brings out a map and explains the purpose of the unexpected party.

“I do not understand why Bilbo or myself will be needed,” you say, breaking the silence that has ensued after Gandalf’s explanation.

“Bilbo, and yourself if you decide to come, will acquire a gem inside of the mountain. A gem that proves that Thorin is the rightful king under the mountain,” Gandalf explains,”while Smaug is used to the smell of dwarf, he is unaccustomed to that of a hobbit.”

“Bilbo and I will not be going on this absolute suicide mission,” you reply shortly.

“I’m afraid I have to agree with Miss Baggins. They are hardly burglar material,” Balin says and that makes you almost want to join the quest. Almost.

“Aye. The wilderness is not a place for gentlefolk who can neither fight nor fend for themselves. Especially a woman,” Dwalin says and you resist the urge to slap his bald head. That comment makes you scoff and Gandalf upset. Before he can say something, you open your mouth.

“And how do I know you’re not women? If I remember correctly, you can’t really tell the difference between a male and female. For all I know, King Thorin could actually be Queen Thorin,” you say and you hear a choking noise from Gloin who had just taken a sip of ale. Thorn is glaring at you again.

“We are all male , thank you very much. Gandalf, I will not be taking these two hobbits with me,” Thorin growls out and Gandalf’s eyebrows furrow.

“You asked me to find the 14th member of this company and I have chosen Mr. Baggins. There is a lot more to him than any of you know, including himself,” at this, he looks at Bilbo,“If Miss Baggins decides to join as well then it will be a company of 15.”

Thorn looks at Gandalf and nods.

“Very well. Hand them a contract,” he says and Balin stands and holds up two pieces of paper.

” It’s just the usual; summary of out-of-pocket expenses, time required, remuneration, funeral arrangements, so forth,” he explains, handing one to me and the other to Thorin who shoves it into Bilbo’s chest.

“Funeral arrangements?” Bilbo asks, whimpering. He has always been the soft-hearted one. You read over yours quickly and Bilbo voices what you read.

“Oh, up to but not exceeding one fourteenth total profit if any. Seems fair. Present company shall not be liable for injuries including but not limited to laceration, evisceration… incineration?” he asks, looking back at the company and you smile a little. He’s going to faint.

“One coin says that he’ll faint,” you whisper to Dwalin. He looks at you and then your brother. “He doesn’t seem that weak. You got a deal,” he says, holding out his hand. You shake it earning a small smile from Thorin.

“Aye, he’ll your flesh off in the blink of an eye,” Bofur states. Bilbo chokes and goes back into the hall.

“You alright there, laddie?” Balin asks.

“Yeah. I’ll be fine. I need. I need air,” Biblo says again and you give him another 40 seconds.

“Think furnace with wings. Flash of light, searing pain and puff. You’re nothing, but a pile of ash,” Bofur explains, yet again and you laugh quietly.

Bilbo straightens and looks at you and looks back ahead. “Nope,” he mutters before promptly fainting into your arms.

“Aye. How did you get there so quickly lassie?” Bofur asks as you gently lay him on the ground.

“I’m his sister. I know everything about him and you, Master Dwalin, owe me a coin,” you say smugly as Gandalf scolds Bofur.

It was decided then that you were going to be a part of this company whether Bilbo joined you or not.

Salt (Cassian x Reader)

Reader Request: i saw this prompt list and there was one that said “i put salt in your coffee while you were in the bathroom and you drank it all without a second thought and that was so hardcore wanna go out sometime” and it was so funny i had to request it for cassian:))))

A/N: Hahaha oh my god I love it! Here you go! This is super short and silly, but it was so fun to write, hope you like it!

You had known Cassian for a few months now, having joined the rebellion after being recruited by Mon Mothma after your parents were killed by stormtroopers on your home world. You had been introduced to the intelligence officer after he had been injured on a mission and you had been assigned as his medic. Despite Cassian’s cold exterior, the two of you had struck up a casual friendship, greeting each other in the halls and occasionally sharing a table in the mess hall when your schedules overlapped. This morning’s breakfast was one of those meal times, and he set down his tray across from yours.

“Good morning, Y/N.” Cassian greeted, and you smiled back at him.

“Good morning Captain.” You replied.

“Or, I suppose, good evening for you. Are you still on the evening rotation?”

“Yep.” You replied with an exaggerated ‘pop’ at the end. You had been assigned to the dreaded graveyard shift for two weeks now, thanks to a shortage of available medical personnel. The rebellion never slept, which subsequently meant that you didn’t either. You could spot the dark circles under Cassian’s eyes, and you knew that they mirrored your own.

“Captain Andor!” A voice called, and Cassian was immediately at attention. The officer caught his eye across the room and Cassian sighed.

“I will be right back.” Cassian said, leaving his breakfast behind to speak with the security officer. You watched their conversation when Cassian’s untouched cup of caf caught your eye. In your few interactions with Cassian, you’d discovered that he had quite the sense of humor, once you got to know him. While caf was the fuel on which the rebellion ran, you couldn’t resist grabbing the salt dispenser off of the table and pouring some into his cup, setting your own aside to give him once he realized what had happened to his own drink.

As Cassian returned to your table, you slipped your hand over your mouth to hide your smile as you tried to eat your breakfast as innocently as possible. He immediately went for the cup of caf, and you watched him out of the corner of your eye for the reaction you knew was coming. You were disappointed, however, when Cassian simply took a sip of the drink and set it back down, moving to pick at the food on his plate. Your gaze drifted to the salt dispenser, wondering if you had mistaken it for the sweetener. No, you were sure that it had been the salt…

As the two of you at breakfast, you and Cassian continued a casual conversation, the man drinking the salt-laden coffee the entire time. You watched him with increasing frustration, until you had both finished your breakfast and cleared the table. You followed Cassian out of the mess hall and into one of the many labyrinthine hallways that made up the rebel base. You glared at the back of his head as you walked, until finally you reached the point where you would be forced to part.

“There was salt in the caf!” You finally blurt out, and Cassian turned to look at you with an eyebrow raised, saying nothing.

“There was salt in the caf! And you…you didn’t even flinch!” You continued, throwing your hands up.

“Yes.” Cassian finally said, which just made you groan with frustration.

“How are you this badass, Cassian Andor? It isn’t even fair!”

You watched as Cassian crossed his arms over his chest, and you stepped further into his space, pressing a finger into his chest.

“We’re going out tonight.” You say, looking up at him with a determined look in his eye. “I’ve decided.”

“Okay.” Cassian replied, smiling for the first time since your hallway encounter began.

“I…really?” You asked, and Cassian chuckled.

“Yes, just…no salt. I’ve had my daily limit.” Cassian replied, dropping a quick kiss to your forehead before turning on his heel and heading in the direction of the landing bay and leaving you standing in the middle of the hallway.

rinrinp42  asked:

What advice would you give a first time d&d player? My brother is running a one-shot for me, my friend, our mom, and our cousin and it's my first time ever, though I do listen to Campaign and I've helped him make decisions both as a player and a DM in the past

:) awesome!! I’m glad you’re getting to play! I obviously think the world of these games, and hope you have a wonderful time playing them.

the best pieces of advice I think I can give to players are the ones I wish I’d had myself going in so sorry in advance if they’re sloppy and not useful for you.

1. Put your stuff on the table. I tend to construct rapidly and elaborately in my head. I can be content doing that pretty much entirely. But the point of play is collaborative storytelling. No one will know the cool thing you thought up for your character or for the scene unless you say it. Take the risk. You won’t be thought of as silly. I promise. The GM wants your engagement. It’s, most likely, how they figure out how to mold their game to your/others’ liking. And a large portion of other players’ fun is getting to see you shine. Don’t hold stuff in. Be awesome.

2. It’s ok to focus on the bits that interest you. Does your character’s clothing interest you? Indulge that. The spell list? Spend time there. Whatever’s fun for you should be allowed to be fun. Don’t monopolize things entirely so things aren’t fun for other players, but don’t deny yourself your own fun. Collaboration means you’re all doing something together. Let yourself figure out what your part of that means.

3. You are allowed to call for time outs, out of character clarifications, or set ANY necessary boundaries along the way as you go. You’re also allowed to ask for trigger warnings going into things. That might seem daunting, so here’s an application that doesn’t press on things we traditionally think of as a boundary-breaching. Your character is playing quid-pro-quo with the needle-toothed mage. You’ve been at it for around 10 minutes, and she has been handily sidestepping the information that you want to get from her. You also suspect she is feeding you some misinformation. Nothing is happening outside of the rules. This is frustrating. You’re starting to get frustrated. You call for a time out, and check in with the GM, “Both my character and I are getting frustrated.” The break enables the GM, who had previously been acting as a character meant to frustrate your character to be able to step back enough to see the bleed taking place and alleviate your concerns. “Ah. Your character is DEFINITELY allowed to be frustrated right now. They are being fucked over. But I don’t want you to be. You also have a chance to turn this around through cunning or a good roll. Are we good to continue?” If you are, the scene is reframed as a collaborative effort again where you’re both on the same side, the side of the story. Asking for breaks to sort through stuff that’s more complex than what’s on the table is ALWAYS OK. It helps everyone.

4. Bring a water bottle. Drink water.

5. This isn’t one I ever needed, but it’s one I’ve seen lots of folks be shy about so I guess this is the place for it. Unless you’re playing a game that’s just you and the GM, games are, in my experience, at their best when the party loves each other unrepentantly. Not everyone is good about speaking up for themselves, or finding room to showcase their own special talents, so help them do that. Love each other by helping each other be awesome. “Lidda, you’d be great at that!” Is a * 0 * moment for a shy player. If your game is more rp focused, asking folks questions about themselves is going to get you cool answers, and forge neat bonds for your GM to mess with down the line. Play with each other. It is your GM’s responsibility to introduce villains and other relevant NPCs early enough to make you give a damn about them. They have to earn each important conversation you have with an npc. Not so with the party. You kids have fun and indulge each other. It’s the good stuff.

Errr that’s all for now I think. Have fun! Oh! And you are 1000% allowed to make your first character a self insert. ALL of your characters can be that. Don’t let anyone give you ANY flack for that. And smooch that cute Jaebrin. Honestly.

Can I say how blessed I feel with the new patch? The silly modes people make are so fun and I love playing hide and seek! Even if the Reinhardts totally destroy the Mercys, its so much fun and people are ussually really nice! Shotout to Adonis, never imagined being chased by a Reinhardt would be so amusing while being spammed with the "You are on my naughty list" voice line ('▽^人)
