Contribute to a good cause – donate to a charity or someone in need, or volunteer somewhere. This will boost your self-worth and may enlighten you.

Take a day to spend time with friends, or go out of your way to make new ones. Trust, expression, and connection open healthy channels of emotion.

Appreciate your own uniqueness. There’s no better way to feel like you matter than to find yourself worthy of your own attention and approval.

Do one unsolicited favor a day. Expressing & manifesting your own kind nature in a way you will notice will increase your self-approval and self-worth.

Create something. Set your imagination free & let your inspiration run wild. This will be refreshing & you’ll have a lasting extension of who you are.

Throwback Tuesday: President’s Son

Such a sweet, wonderfully fluffy, and hopeful fic! Love it, love it: 

i grew up in your white house by @tryslora (1/1 | 2,309 | Gen.)

Derek sneaks away from the tour at the White House. He’s looking for one thing, and finds something else entirely.

Excellent banter! So snarky and fresh!: 

Love is a many splendored thing by Hedwig_Dort (1/1 | 3,334 | Teen)

Prince Derek - of obscure European royalty, has been studying and working in the US for about a decade now -has been strong armed by his family to attend the state visit to the newly elected President Stilinski. He tries to hide on the edge of the party and meets an interesting young man.

Stiles Stilinski has been feeling a little adrift since his father was elected. He is under firm instructions from his father and his best friend to keep his face and/or ass out of the tabloids. He just needs something to do! But for now he’s just hiding from their European guests.

As always, they find each other

I just *melt*!!: 

protect what you love by haleofStilesheart (1/1 | 804 | Teen) 

A scream wakes Derek up in the middle of the night. So goes the life of a Secret Service agent.

For the ❄ prompt: 66. “I had a nightmare.”

This is perfection!: 

What Would the Press Think? by whiry / @provokiing (1/1 | 1,801 | Teen) 

“Fuck the press,“ Derek growls too lowly, and it makes Stiles smirk more.

"Fuck the press,” he whispers back, almost excitedly.

So cute and awesomeeeee: 

Heart’s on Fire by julietangel (1/1 | 6,696 | Explicit) 

Stiles should have known it was him, but he blames the games for distracting him from his soulmate.

(Bonus! Written in 2015 but simply one of the BEST!): 

reGuardless by @raisesomehale (1/1 | 3,470 | Mature) 

The president had been to the point when he explained to Derek the rules of the job.

Stiles was in the room while these rules were recited: Never take your eyes off of him in public. That’s how he liked to dodge his last bodyguards. No more than an arm’s length apart. He’s more slippery than you’d think. Escort him to and from appearances. Intervene in any situation that might tarnish the Stilinski image…

The list went on and on. As did the games of chicken Stiles initiated to test Derek with these rules.

My Ninth Doctor Fics

Hello lovelies! So today is 9/9, and so we celebrate the amazing and wonderful Ninth Doctor, my favourite Doctor and my Doctor forever. In honour of this special day, I humbly offer a list all of my Nine x Rose fics to date. The list is under the cut.

I hope you enjoy! 


Of Coveralls and Penguin Suits- A human, mechanic AU in three parts and my only non canon AU to date. It’s something soft and fluffy and funny, with requited pining and a teensy bit of angst/hurt/comfort. Oh, and it has Jack. And Donna. And Wilf. Warning for Jack being Jack. ‘Nuff said.


Hands Off the Jacket- A silly little ficlet wherein (married) Nine x Rose have an interesting discussion with Jack. With some eighties music thrown in and a cheeky TARDIS.

Organic Interface- a silly little one-shot where Nine and Rose run into Three. Confusion ensues, as normal. Established Relationship.

Soaked to the Skin- Nine and Rose get caught in storm, and argue about whose fault it is. Of course, that doesn’t mean they’re not trying to look out for each other anyway…

Lean on Me- Rose rescues a young boy from being beaten and it gets complicated. Established relationship, warning for non-specific allusions to violence. Hurt/Comfort, BAMF Rose and loving Doctor caring for her.

An Unexpected Delay-  Rose and the Doctor go on a sightseeing tour, and Jack, who is supposed to join them, doesn’t turn up. At least, not where they expect him to. A cracky, ridiculous fic based on something outrageous that I had witnessed that very day. Warnings for references to public nudity (nothing explicit). 

On the Many Uses of Tea- A series of vignettes which focuses on particular incidents in Rose and the Doctor’s life (with Jack thrown in, of course), focused on the making or drinking of tea. Little bit of hurt/comfort, tiny bit of angst, some personal growth, and happy fluff.

Works Every TimeSilly little ficlet wherein Rose tries to persuade the Doctor to take them (and Jack) for a beach holiday. Jealousy and all round adorable-ness. Also warnings for Jack being Jack.

The Beauty of Home-  The Doctor takes Rose somewhere a little different. A moment of tranquility with fluffiness and implied fluffiness.

Love is a Many Splendored Thing- POTW AU, implied. Nine doesn’t regenerate. Companion piece to ‘As It Should Be’ and ‘Fantastic.’ Jackie POV. Bonded/married Nine x Rose.

Fantastic- POTW AU (implied). Nine doesn’t regenerate. Companion piece to ‘Love is a Many Splendored Thing’ and ‘As It Should Be.’ Doctor POV. Bonded/married Nine x Rose.

As It Should Be- POTW AU, implied. Nine doesn’t regenerate. Companion piece to ‘Love is a Many Splendored Thing’ and ‘Fantastic.’ TARDIS POV. Bonded/married Nine x Rose.

Victory Should Be Naked- A slightly…different ending to Aliens of London/World-War Three. Established relationship ship Nine x Rose. Warning for the B52′s and other scary music. And some traumatised Slitheen. Semi-Crack fic.

Gold- The Doctor takes Rose to a unique marketplace for a very special reason.  Angst, fluff and hurt/comfort. Warnings for non-specific references to past off-screen domestic violence.

Fully Gruntled- Rose is pursued by a determined admirer. Madness and a little lunacy ensue. Silly, fluffy and lots of fun. Ficlet. Established Relationship.

Because I Want To-  The Doctor and Rose inadvertently land on Valentine’s Day. A very interesting discussion follows. A discussion of love, romance and true devotion. This long one-shot is fluffy, with mentions of angst, self-doubt and one specific reference to past off-screen abuse.

Something Beautiful- Wherein the Doctor takes Rose somewhere very special, and they discuss the value and comfort of beauty in the midst of ugliness and suffering. Fluffy, with tiny wistful moments.






A Many Splendored Thing

On the (late) occasion of the birthday of @pluckyredhead​: a toast, milady, to a good year and many more. 

Sweetheart, they’re suspecting things (People will say we’re in love)

On normal days, Ginny finds the swish of windshield wipers soothing. But tonight, in high gear, it just sounds like her little Honda Civic is hyperventilating. As she drives past a bus stop, she spots two figures under a broken umbrella.

“Hey guys!” She yells to be heard over the rain. “Matt! Foggy! Do you guys need a ride?”

“No, we’re–” Matt starts.

“Oh, I guess, if you have room,” Foggy says reluctantly.

Ginny blinks. They’re not huddled like penguins just because they’ve got half an umbrella, they’re holding hands.
