look at the sparkle in those eyes!

She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn’t beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul.

The Zodiac signs and the type of person they would date.

Aries: Your blonde moments would need to paired up with someone who learns by the books. The cutest couple ever omg. Religion is a key thing in your relationship, along with a love for dancing and One Direction. Your partner would need to be allergic to pawpaws and be able to cook, since you can’t even crack an egg without damaging something.

Taurus: You partner would have to be buff and fit, just like you. If they’re not health conscience, you guys wouldn’t be able to go on those cute afternoon jogs around the neighbourhood before stopping to get a salad somewhere fancy. Their sparkling eyes would match yours, putting you both under a spell when together. You’re quite on the serious side with a slight salty undertone. Your partner would balance that out by having a slight sense of humour but a love for vintage items.  

Gemini: Having beautiful hair yourself, you look for someone who could meet your high standards. They would need to be taller than you, with a love for sleeping and dogs. Other than them needing to be able to cuddle for hours, not minding late night phone calls, enjoying all the weird foods you enjoy, loving KPOP and being as funny as you, you’re not that picky (NB sarcasm).

Cancer: The main things that you look for in someone is height (taller than you) and being able to make flow jokes. Together, you’ll have a large sock collection. They must love hugs that last over an eternity, watching cartoons at 4 in the morning, dealing with the fact that you’re a hoarder and must be brave since you’re afraid of pretty much anything. 

Leo: The rebellious, bad boy/ girl kinda vibe who’ll break rules for you is the one that you hunt down. You’ll need someone that shares the same kinks as you, which is plenty might I add. The person you seek has to have a personality to die for, that consisting of being possessive over you, a mind dirtier than a public bathroom floor, being hilarious and obviously up for late night adventures.

Virgo: Deep conversations at night? Cuddles in the morning? Being able to understand your mumbles? Accepting of who you are? Loving the booty? Yes, yes, yes, yes and yes. Their strength, angelic singing voice and magical instrument playing roped you in since day one. Dancing till the cows come home will be a common occurrence. 

Libra: You’d date someone sassy with a hefty dash of sweet. Their ability to bring your beautiful smile to your face is something everyone desires. They need to be able to do athletic activities, but also not mind doing anything at all. They need to be a good listener, someone who you can trust with your life and someone who’s just as amazing as you. Cute galore. 

Scorpio: All you need is a shared love for sports, 9gag, dirty minds and bread with butter. Simplicity at its best, nothing is in your way. You’re quite easy to please, but buff biceps or big bum bums really get you going. You need someone who is either just as fussy as you or is willing to help you get over some of the things you struggle with.

Sagittarius: The classic Prince Charming or Cinderella is the one you long to hold. They have high determination levels to get what they really want, along with endless charm, amazing moves on the dance floor and being people-people. There’ll never be a dull moment in your relationship as you’ll always be trying out new things with them.

Capricorn: Although your hatred for people is strong, there is that one person that’ll make your knees weak. They’ll be strong with no emotions, always ready for climbing a mountain or some adventurous shiz like that, being able to cook (but not as good as you), able to make you laugh till your tummy hurts, and having the ability to crack the shell that you’ve put up.

Aquarius: You don’t look for anything specific. You love who your heart chooses to love. The only things you look for personality wise is pride in what they do, self confidence, having the ability to turn your frowns upside down, having a secret party trick and they must love every animal that exists. There’s no excuse to not want a million of every one.

Pisces: To be honest, you don’t even need a horoscope to find out what type of person you’d date. You get along with everyone and although you are very awkward, it just seems to work. Your constant charm lures in almost every person who lays eyes on you. You taste in a companion varies almost everyday. Some very serious and short, others tall and flexible. Who knows. What I do know is that this partner will be lucky as hell.

Imagine the moment you look into your TC’s eyes, realizing that there are no feelings left.

Imagine how it would feel like once you realize that you no longer have a crush on him. Imagine how odd it would be to look into those gorgeous eyes without feeling like your heart is going to jump out of your chest. The weird moment when he walks past you and you actually manage to act like a normal student.

Now think about it.. what if he notices every little change? 

Imagine the moment he realizes that your eyes no longer carry that playful sparkle when you look at him. What if he notices that your facial expressions changed from always slightly excited to.. almost cold. What if he starts to wonder why you no longer try to start a conversation with him or why you no longer greet him with that beautiful and bright smile of yours. And what if he also notices that you no longer blush adorably when he smiles at you. Would he be worried and ask himself if he did something wrong? Or would everything make sense to him.. imagine the confusion he would feel once he realizes that you once had a crush on him and he never noticed anything.. until it was all over.

Miscommunication

Pairing: Thomas Brodie-Sangster x Reader

Request: You’re part of the TMR cast. Thomas is constantly flirting with you and you flirt back, but, he sees you be more physical with Dylan (piggy back ride, hug) but Dylan is your cousin. - @eyeliveinabook

Thomas’ POV:

Gosh. There she is. Does she have any idea what she does to me? She’s so freaking adorable. With those sparkling (e/c) eyes. And that smile! Dang she’s perfect… AND SHE’S WALKING TOWARDS ME. Ok. Calm down. You’re cool. You got this Tom.

3rd Person:

“Hey Tom!” You greeted your friends with a smile and a wink. You were holding a small character role in The Maze Runner series. Thomas Sangster, you’re celebrity crush, just so happened to be there and you two seemed to hit it off quite well.

“H-hey (y/n)! You’re looking adorable today. Of course, when do you not?” “Thank you kind sir. You don’t look so rough, yourself. I saw you from across the room and thought, ‘Tom looks extra handsome today. He must be trying to impress someone.’

You gave your now blushing friend a flirty wink and started walking to your set.

“Don’t wear yourself out, babe. You’ll need enough energy for what we’re doing later.”

Now it was your turn to blush as you heard Thomas chuckling behind you. You didn’t care to look back just yet.


“ONWARD MY TRUSTY STEED! TO THE SNACKS!”

You were currently riding on Dylan O’Brien’s back pretending he was your horse.

“LET US FEAST ON DORITOS AND ARNOLD PALMER!” “Wait a minute, wait a minute.” You’re ‘horse; came to a stop.

“..what?” “We need popcorn, too!” “I thought that was implied..” “Oh.. THEN ONWARD!”

Thomas POV:

I heard incredibly loud screams and laughs coming from the other side of the set. I looked over to the noise and saw (y/n) and Dylan goofing off while she was on his back. Hold on. When did Dylan and (y/n) become so close? Another peal of laughter traveled over and I couldn’t stand it anymore. I marched over to my friends and made sure they knew I was there.

“Ahem!”

They barely caught themselves as they fumbled around, trying to regain balance. Failing to do so, they fell on a heap on top of each other, roaring with laughter.

“Oh, hey Tommy! Dylan and I were just goofing around. Hope we weren’t being a nuisance.” “Oh no you were. Its kind of hard to focus when two people are screaming when you’re trying to work.”

I heard the giggles stop as I began walking away from the Dyl and (n/n). Entering my trailer, not a moment after, I heard knocks sound from the door.

“Thomas?”

I closed my eyes and heaved a sigh. I can’t stay mad at her. She must know that. I paced to the door and composed myself to try and seem mad at her.

I flung the door open, “What?” “Hey I just came to check on you. You kind of seemed upset before and I wanted to make sure you were ok?”

Her statement came out as more of a question. It was endearing that she cared enough about me to come check on me. Then I remembered her and Dylan running around laughing.

“I’m fine.” “Now you and I both know that’s not true.”

She pushed her way past me and into my trailer. Sitting herself down on a bench, it didn’t seem like she was going to move.

“Sit,” she commanded me. “What’s going on?”

Plopping myself down next to her, I let go of what’s been bugging me. “I don’t exactly like the idea of you and Dylan. I know you have the choice to go out with whoever you want to, but.. I was kind of hoping that guy would be me. I know it’s stupid, but, getting to know you has been one of the best parts about this role. You can leave. I.. I understand.”

“…wait, what? That’s what this is about? Sweetheart, Dyl is my cousin.”

It took a moment for her words to sink in. When they did I felt super embarrassed about my overreaction.

“(y/n). I’m so sorry I..” “Hey, it’s fine. We all make mistakes.. besides. I’m more into British guys anyway..”

When her words registered, I jumped up and faced her with wide eyes.

“So does that mean ‘yes’?” “Yes that I’ll go out with you? Yes. Yes that I’m in love with my cousin? That’d be a no.”

I picked her up and hugged her, squeezing her with all I had.

“Thank you,” I whispered.

“It’s nothing, really. But can you please let me go? I can’t exactly breathe..”

Dracoxreader (muggleborn slytherin.)

Can you probably make an imagine whereas the reader is a muggle-born, and she was sorted into Slytherin. Draco was obviously furious as he thought muggle-borns weren’t good enough to be put in Slytherin. He started making fun of her and all that sort- but she gave no shit towards him and Draco realised that and found himself wanting her attention (is that’s even possible). You can end it like the way you want :-)

Come sei bella, più bella stasera Mariù
How beautiful, so beautiful, you are tonight Mariú

Splende un sorriso di stella negli occhi tuoi blu

Oggi ti sono vicino, perche sospirar?

Tutta la mia vita sei tu
You’re my whole life

Gli occhi tuoi belli brillano

Come due stelle scintillano
Like two stars they sparkle


Dimmi che illusione non è
Tell me that there’s no illusion

Dimmi che sei tutta per me
Tell me that you’re all mine

Qui sul tuo cuor non soffro più
Here in your heart I no longer suffer

So che una bella e gagliarda sirena sei tu
I know that you’re a gallant and beautiful siren

So che si perde chi guarda quegli occhi tuoi blu
I know that whoever looks at those blue eyes of yours loses themselves

Ma che m'importa se il mondo si burla di me
But what does it matter to me if the world mocks me,

Meglio nel gorgo profondo ma sempre con te!
I’m better off in the depths of a whirlpool, but I’m always with you

Talk to me of love,  Mariù

Tutta la mia vita sei tu
You’re my whole life

Gli occhi tuoi belli brillano
Your beautiful eyes shine

Come due stelle scintillano
Like two stars they sparkle

Dimmi che sei tutta per me

So my dear friend wrote me a really cool thing, and since I couldn’t sleep very well last night, I drew some of it…(and then added the last doodle, which took way too long to be a doodle OTL )

Fairytale AU where Reigen is a charlatan who (not so) accidentally adopted a fairy changeling, Mob. :)

  • but even those nasty little eye crusts are beautiful bc HE MAKES EVERYTHING BEAUTIFUL OK
  • he acts tougher than he is
  • to pretend that the anti’s comments don’t bother him
  • & he tries to keep up the front around you too, not wanting to bother you
  • but you can tell
  • so you break down his walls
  • which in turn makes him break down
  • and he’s so PRECIOUS OK protect him
  • as much as him & haechan butt heads, he adores the boy all the same
  • all the boys in fact
  • he calls them his “kids” and now you’re a v large family
  • papa taeyong & you at the head; taeil as grandpa; doyoung as your pet rabbit; and the rest are your sons
  • he adores winwin the most tbh
  • bc he’s aware of how he was in the past & he regrets it so much
  • so by caring for everyone and showing the newer, more mature person he’s become, he hopes ppl will see that he’s changed & is truly regretful
  • they don’t
  • he just wants to make you & everyone else happy
  • but he’s not an open book so it mightn’t seem like that
  • he won’t simply tell you how much he loves you
  • instead, he’ll show it through his actions
  • (even if he complains)
  • “you want me to brush your hair? ugh, that’s weird. but ok”
  • “you want me to be the photographer for your insta pic? sure”
  • there’s an album in his phone that he’ll never tell you about
  • no it’s not porn
  • jaehyun found that months ago
  • it’s an album with photos of you; alone, with him, screenshots from your insta/sc/whatever, screenshots of random texts that melt his heart so he never wants to forget them
  • then there’s the pics where the boys got their hands on his phone
  • SO MANY HAECHAN SELCA’S
  • pulling dumb faces
  • he tries to get mark to join in but the boy just smiles sweetly
  • “you’re so boring, hyung. jeno, get over here!”
  • now there’s silly photo’s of donghyuk & jeno
  • taeyong always speaks well of you
  • no matter the situation
  • if the relationship is found out & it’s a massive scandal. and you’re getting hate for dating this “felon” (it’s been YEARS GET OVER IT) and he’s getting hate for being an idol that dates
  • he’ll still smile whenever he hears your name in an interview
  • and tell them how you got together
  • how great you are
  • how lucky he is to have you
  • wait let’s talk about how you got together
  • through mark
  • that’s kind of it tbh, not a really exciting story
  • mark just thought “hey (y/n) is a cool person, so is my hyung. they’ll probably be good friends!” so he invites you over one day
  • it took a while for taeyong to open up to you
  • at first you were just friends with similar senses of humour & interests
  • so you started to stick together and he would scout you out at sm parties or look forward to you visiting
  • to the point where he’s like “shit, I think I’ve got a crush”
  • so he asked you out on a date
  • a simple, normal story
  • no dramatic, cinematic moments or explosions or slow motion run sequences
  • just friends that become something more
  • skinship was awkward at first
  • he did the yawn then arm around your shoulder move
  • making out is fun though
  • really fun
  • until jisung walks in and is traumatized for life
  • oh but you’re wearing taeyong’s hoodie at the time
  • which means that he can never wear it again without thinking of that moment
  • which means, it’s yours now
  • forever
  • it’s soft & smells like him
  • plus he thinks you look adorable
  • so he gives you more of his clothes
  • and you’re always warm and happy and feeling protected
  • he’s a pretty perfect boyfriend

Do you know what’s so special about Isak and Even though? What pulls you in and doesn’t let go? What’s so impossible not to fall in love with? What it is that gives you butterflies, that makes your heart beat speed up, that takes your breath away, that effects you in all these REAL ways?

…How unbelievably real their love feels, it’s all in the tiniest details, the visible sparkles in their eyes when they look at each other, all  those delicate little touches, the way you see their skin ripple when they stroke each others faces, the way their whole faces light up in the biggest smile from the silly jokes and stupid statements they make, the way that their words are so softly uttered yet still so full of emotion.

The actors are so amazing, the directing, the scripts, the social media and texts…everything about it is so delicately done, with so much care and attention to detail that their world collides with ours and the characters become apart of our lives and apart of us.

I truly believe there with never be anything else quite like SKAM, it’s so rare and nothing else will ever come close, it’s a one time thing, a phenomenon that can never be replicated and I for one will always treasure it and look forward to season after season for as long as we have the pleasure of it being in our lives. 

She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn’t beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul. She is beautiful.

“Her thoughts were replaying again and again the image of Anakin, the look he had given her. She heard his words again, “…grown more beautiful,” and though Padme was undeniably that, those were not words she was used to hearing.

She saw him again, in her thoughts. And clearly. Her mental eye roamed over his lean and strong frame, over his face, tight with the intensity that she had always admired, and yet with eyes sparkling with joy, with mischief, with…

With longing?

That thought stopped the Senator. Her hands slipped down to her sides, and she sat there, staring at herself, judging her own appearance as Anakin might.”

Imagine trying to make Christmas happy for Sirius.


You squeezed Sirius’s hand tightly in your excitement, carefully maneuvering him into your flat and making sure that he didn’t blindly bump into anything under your guidance.

“It smells very sweet in here,” He commented, prompting you to look at his eyes and check that he wasn’t peeking. “Are those cookies I smell?”

“They may or may not be. But if they are and you look I will eat them all while you dangle from the ceiling,” You threaten, pulling him over to the dingy little couch in your sitting room. “Alright. You sit, I’ll be right back.” 

You darted over to the corner of the room and turned on the lights, watching the room sparkle with every color of the rainbow.

“Open your eyes.”

Sirius blinked his eyes open, looking around at the decorations you put up. While he had been working you had taken the time to sweep, mop, wipe, and scrub every surface and then cover it in Christmas. There was even a little 5 foot tall tree in the corner near the kitchen. It was covered in mismatched baubles and tinsel, but you thought it looked quite nice with the lights and the presents underneath. You had even gotten a muggle toy train to circle the base of the tree. You looked around at your handy work, admiring the paper snow flakes scattered along the walls while you waited for Sirius to speak.

It took a lot longer than you expected. 

When you realized that it had been a minute of silence you turned your head toward him. Sirius was on his feet but he hadn’t moved. He was just staring at you. You smiled.

“Merry Christmas,” You said softly. Sirius stepped toward you, gently cupping your cheeks with his long cool fingers. 

“Merry Christmas, Y/N.”
