After reading the thunderstorm mini fic all I could think about was andreil and all the foxes together during a thunderstorm. Like Andrew would be a 'human barnacle' on Neil, Neil would carry on as normal, Nicky would be dying, Matt's trying to get a picture, Dan's looking at her babies with pride, Kevin doesn't care, Allison's won another bet, Renne's smiling, Aaron's disgusted (but not really), and Andrew looks murderous but refuses to let go because fuck that thunder outside. I just love this

( p e r f e c t, yes. )

  • so
  • Matt, Nicky and Aaron were supposed to be spending the night at the girl’s room for a movie night that Andrew & Neil politely declined (because this meant they got Matt and Neil’s dorm to themselves – Kevin had to work on his history papers for once in his life (even though he took a “fifteen minute break” to watch Exy every five minutes))
  • but when the power went out from a sudden thunderstorm, whelp
  • the party’s broken up early, Matt slinks off to his room with Dan & Nicky in tow because they wanted to make sure Neil and Andrew weren’t somehow, I don’t even know, trapped in a dark bathroom
  • to be honest there’s just that instinct to Go Tell Your Friends when something like a power outage happens
  • they’ve got their phonelights out, which means a direct beam lands on the singular figure of a neil-stacked-on-andrew 
  • like 
  • literally Andrew could not be holding on tighter
  • he might be shorter but Neil’s practically folded in half in his lap
  • but still looks awfully comfy and secure
  • this is clearly no amateur hour, this is Advanced Cuddling
  • it’s not even sexy, it’s just cute
  • Nicky Gasps
  • Dan Gasps
  • Matt stutters out an apology because somehow this is more intimate than if they’d been naked??

Body Positive Parenting

“How to talk to your daughter about her body, step one: Don’t talk to your daughter about her body, except to teach her how it works.

Don’t say anything if she’s lost weight. Don’t say anything if she’s gained weight.

If you think your daughter’s body looks amazing, don’t say that. Here are some things you can say instead:

"You look so healthy!” is a great one.

Or how about, “You’re looking so strong.”

“I can see how happy you are – you’re glowing.”

Better yet, compliment her on something that has nothing to do with her body.

Don’t comment on other women’s bodies either. Nope. Not a single comment, not a nice one or a mean one.

Teach her about kindness towards others, but also kindness towards yourself.

Don’t you dare talk about how much you hate your body in front of your daughter, or talk about your new diet. In fact, don’t go on a diet in front of your daughter. Buy healthy food. Cook healthy meals. But don’t say, “I’m not eating carbs right now.” Your daughter should never think that carbs are evil, because shame over what you eat only leads to shame about yourself.

Encourage your daughter to run because it makes her feel less stressed. Encourage your daughter to climb mountains because there is nowhere better to explore your spirituality than the peak of the universe. Encourage your daughter to surf, or rock climb, or mountain bike because it scares her and that’s a good thing sometimes.

Help your daughter love soccer or rowing or hockey because sports make her a better leader and a more confident woman. Explain that no matter how old you get, you’ll never stop needing good teamwork. Never make her play a sport she isn’t absolutely in love with.

Prove to your daughter that women don’t need men to move their furniture.

Teach your daughter how to cook kale.

Teach your daughter how to bake chocolate cake made with six sticks of butter.

Pass on your own mom’s recipe for Christmas morning coffee cake. Pass on your love of being outside.

Maybe you and your daughter both have thick thighs or wide ribcages. It’s easy to hate these non-size zero body parts. Don’t. Tell your daughter that with her legs she can run a marathon if she wants to, and her ribcage is nothing but a carrying case for strong lungs. She can scream and she can sing and she can lift up the world, if she wants.

Remind your daughter that the best thing she can do with her body is to use it to mobilize her beautiful soul.“

- Sarah Koppelkam

Hey you! You’re beautiful and gorgeous in your own way. Don’t let anyone make you feel undesirable, because you are perfect just the way you are!
