Gráinne’s 2nd birthday!

Good evening everyone, long time no see. It’s been quite a while since we’ve last been able to make a post on this blog - we’ve had a terrible Internet connection for some time now, and it’s just starting to get better. It’s a little slow, but usable. So much have happened since our last blog post, and it feels like you have missed a lot. Lughaidh’s 2nd and 3rd month updates, Gráinne’s second year birthday (which I did save these little photos from, to show you). Soon, our twins will be turning SEVEN, and we also have to prepare for Christmas and New Year’s Eve etc. It’s been a lovely year for us!

Moving on, Gráinne’s second birthday was quite the success. Of course, she’s still too young to even remember this in the future, but we still made it a very special day for her. Her cake was adorable, and she loved smashing it when she was given the chance (I didn’t get photos of that, unfortunately). She’s such a sweet and fun little girl, and she brightens our days, and has done that ever since she was born, two years ago. It’s kinda hard to believe that she’s 2 already; she’s still so small. However, she does have quite a big vocabulary for her age, and she’s a very smart kid. She gets along with everyone, is very friendly and polite, and I’m a very proud mother. We love you, our little fireball.

On the other hand, our little red-haired baby is 3 months and 4 weeks old. He will be 4 months in only THREE days from now, but he’s still our tiny little baby. I plan to do an update on him in a couple of days, but he has definitely grown a lot since he was born. Our children are normally small until they turn three or four years of age, so as expected, he’s still on the small side. But until next time,

video producer! kang dongho (part 1)

summary: dongho is a video producer at the company you’re interning at & things happen 
genre: fluff
a/n: reviving my blog to casually post this because i can lol also i broke this into parts because it was getting too long ;;;; this is my first attempt at a bulletproof scenario kinda thing so i would love it if you could tell me what you think!!! thank you for reading <3

  • the summer before you went off to university, you decided to find yourself a job to get some of that $$$
  • as someone who spent a lot of time watching tv shows & movies & stuff, you’d always been interested in work related to media
  • so you decided that you were going to get a job related to that field so that you could get some work experience for the future
  • there was this local company that made youtube videos that you had your eyes on
  • they always made fun videos which were super relatable and fun to watch, and they explored a lot of different ideas (think something like a local & smaller version of buzzfeed)
  • as you were browsing for job openings, you found out that this company was looking for interns for the summer
  • and even more importantly, they emphasised that they just wanted someone willing to learn, meaning no previous knowledge of like video editing/production or camera work or whatever was needed
  • this was perfect for you because as much as you were interested in the field, you had never gotten an opportunity to actually learn stuff so this was exactly what you were looking for
  • so you applied for this company and you got accepted
  • time skip! it was your first day going in for work and you were super nervous because this was your first real job that wasn’t working at a fast food joint or something and tbh you had absolutely no idea what you were supposed to do
  • once you entered the company’s office, you were brought over to the other new interns
  • before you had the chance to talk to them, another guy entered the room
  • he introduced himself as minki, and apparently he was the one who managed the interns
  • he gave you guys a super good first impression because he was totally casual and friendly in the way he talked to you and he actually brought you guys some chocolate as like a welcome gift
  • after briefing you guys about your work and company rules and stuff he asked you three to choose one out of a few categories to kind of specialise in
  • there was stuff like video production, ideation, on screen stuff (idk), and stuff like that
  • you and a couple others chose video production and minki brought yall over to this other guy whom he introduced as dongho
  • he was apparently a senior video producer, and also the one who was going to be teaching you guys stuff
  • he was also very scary. he had like tattoos and slight stubble and an rbf and just overall seemed like a very stereotypical bad (and scary) boy
  • your first impression of him was terrible because he barely smiled the whole time he introduced himself and the work to you guys
  • what a stark contrast to minki
  • you started getting anxious once dongho started getting into teaching yall the basics because turns out most of the others already knew stuff about videography & editing
  • they would ask dongho questions about the software or something and his reply would have words you’d never heard before and you were just sitting there like. what. was i supposed to know this stuff????
  • it was honestly like you weren’t even there bc 1) you couldn’t find it in yourself to join in the conversation much bc you were shy around strangers and 2) you honestly couldn’t even if you weren’t bc you had no idea what they were saying
  • the others also weren’t really making an effort to befriend you
  • you were more than relieved to scurry out of there once the day ended
  • on the way home you were thinking is this how the real world is supposed to be bc if yes pls abort mission
  • anyways for the next few days it turns out that you guys were tasked to shadow a video producer each to like learn faster from more hands on experiences
  • and just your luck turns out the one you were supposed to be shadowing was dongho. you’re already slightly panicking at the thought of spending a whole day almost alone together with the Scary Guy
  • you were also lowkey confused about why you, the intern who probably knew the least, were with the Senior video producer but whatever you just went with it. at least you were getting paid for this 
  • so the next day dongho was supposed to go out on a shoot at this renowned local restaurant for a segment minki was hosting and you had to follow them
  • dongho was driving yall there and you were sitting alone in the backseat with all the camera equipment
  • as you guys reached the restaurant and dongho was trying to park the car, he turned behind to check the space and while doing so there was a fleeting moment when his eyes met yours in the backseat
  • and you kinda got jittery feelings for a second
  • “am i really that socially inept that just eye contact with someone idk well is enough to make me feel like this” you thought to yourself lol
  • but okay whatever you just dismissed it and got down for the shoot
  • throughout the whole thing you took careful notes of everything dongho was doing in a tiny notebook because you wanted to learn everything asap
  • there were moments when dongho would like set up the camera or direct minki to do certain things, and he would turn around to ask you to take note of that but he was surprised (and also impressed) to see that you were already on it
  • the dish minki was there to review was this super popular meringue pie and once he was done with his hosting stuff he offered the pie to you guys
  • you happily accepted the offer bc tbh the pie looked delicious
  • but dongho started whining about how he still had to dismantle the tripod although he wanted the pie super badly
  • (and you were kinda surprised bc,, the whining didn’t suit his image at all but it was .. kind of cute)
  • so you, being the caring intern you were, lifted a fork of pie towards him expecting him to take the fork from you
  • but nope. he decided to lean in and eat off the fork in your hand
  • you were flustered to say the least bc he had leaned in pretty close and minki just laughed from the other side of the table as he watched you being awwkard
  • but that wasnt the end of it. after a few seconds dongho was saying “i want more” and somehow you ended up feeding it to him again and omg? there is that jittery feeling again
  • you thought he was supposed to be scary but why is he so cute
  • and the tips of your ears were turning red but dongho didn’t seem to notice at all as he finished packing up the camera parts
  • (but minki on the other hand probably did and he’s probably already made a note to tell aron, another video producer at the company, all about how dongho is confusing the new intern)
  • as much as you try to dedicate all your attention to absorbing as much new information as possible, you start getting a little distracted as the week progresses
  • suddenly you find yourself thinking to yourself “has dongho always looked this attractive when driving”
  • he rolls up his sleeves once and “why does his tiger tattoo look so cool on him it’s a stupid design”
  • “i thought he was supposed to be scary why does he look like a baby when he laughs”
  • one day you spend time together with him learning how to edit a video and you steal a glance at his serious work face as he works on animating something in the video and you get that jittery feeling just seeing him that focused bc he looked so cool
  • at the end of the week of shadowing and learning and spending time with dongho, jonghyun (director of the company) comes in to see how you guys were doing
  • “how’s y/n doing? all good?”
  • dongho: “more than good. at this rate she’s going to become the best intern soon” he then proceeds to pat your head and smile at you
  • and his eyes become half moons and he’s looking at you kinda proudly
  • bc he was super impressed with your willingness to learn although you started out knowing nothing but he didn’t say that out loud
  • but your heart is beating super fast bc wtf why is he looking at you with that pleased look
  • and in that moment you knew for sure
  • you were totally & massively whipped for dongho

I made a set of little parks today for a future hood - this is one of them! Nice to do something a little simple compared to the elaborate mansions I’ve been doing lately.

…the Earth had to shake for us to find each other again

the year is 2018. someone, probably a new homestuck lured in from hiveswap, decides to see what happened last 6/12 after just discovering it was a thing to be celebrated. they see that one post that’s a 6/12 timeline and think, wait, 2017 isn’t on here. why? little did they know, we don’t talk about 2017’s 6/12. it’s a shameful thing to even think about. they discover that all memories of 6/12/17 have been deleted, except one post simply titled “your ad here: $700.20”.

anonymous asked:

hey, it's your Samwell bake sales anon! can we get a nhl fundraiser follow-up? I mean, if you're so inspired.

original bake sale fic

“… well, I have to say, Mark, we always say that hockey can be a violent sport but this game is downright– good lord that check was brutal!”

“Yes, Zimmermann is looking to the ref for a call on that one. He’s not going to get it, but some heated words are being exchanged.”

“You know, I think Jack might actually get into a fight this game. He usually avoids it but–”

“It doesn’t really make any sense. The Aces and the Falcs are rivals, to be sure, after facing off in four Stanley Cup finals, but they usually keep it clean. There’s a lot of respect on both sides.”

“Not this game. I thought Zimms and Parse had buried the hatchet after some tense years early on playing against each other but this is vicious.”

“And Tater has just gone after Troy Swoops again. Or no, wait, Troy has gone after Tater. They’ve already fought once but a trip to the bin does not seem to have cooled them down at all.”

“This really isn’t making any sense. Lately, social media would have us believe that these two teams are quite close. Both have been at the forefront of LGBTQ issues and are huge donors to ‘You Can Play’ and– well, now Thirdy is shoving Ethan Vanderbu– Yup, it’s another fight.”

“Thirdy and Vander this time. For the folks just tuning in, this is the third fight between Falcs and Aces this game.”

“And it’s still the first period.”

“And it’s November.”

“No reason at all for this type of animosity.”

“Oh, no, it looks like this is turning into a bit of a brawl. Lots of things being said here. In fact– let’s cut down and see if any of our mics are picking up some of what’s going on. Diana, down to you.”

“Yes, William, so from what I understand, I think the root cause of these issues is something to do with… a fundraiser?”

“There was that NFL/You can Play fundraiser just last night. Both teams were in attendance. You’re saying that’s where the problem started?”

“I think so, Mark. During the first fight between Tater and Lux, I heard something about blueberries? And here, listen in on this:”

Goddamn, Parse, you’ve got to let this go.”

“I BID $15,000 DOLLARS, ZIMMERMANN! DON’T TELL ME TO LET THIS GO!”

“You didn’t have to pay it! It was a blind auction. You didn’t have to pay anything!”

“I DIDN’T GET ANY PIE, YOU ASSHOLE. I WOULD HAVE GLADLY PAID MORE! HOW COULD YOU HAVE POSSIBLY KNOWN TO BID OVER 20 THOUSAND DOLLARS??”

“Well, obviously, that’s how much the pie is worth, Kenny. I just bid a fair price!”

“YOU LIVE WITH HIM! YOU! FUCKING! LIVE! WITH! HIM!”

“Ah, well, let’s cut away from that shall we. Clearly, this fundraiser left some sore feelings on both sides of the teams. I– oh, yes this a brawl now. Tater and Swoops are back at it.”

“And Snowy has left his goal and– it’s a goalie fight.”

YOU KNOW I LIKE THE BLACKBERRY JAM MORE THAN YOU! I DESERVED–”

“Could you move away from the rink a bit, Diana, your mic is picking up–”

“Well, Mark, it looks like the ref is giving penalties to– everyone.”

“Yes. Everyone is going to the bin. Literally everyone on the ice.”

“It’s going to be a hell of a time fitting in there.”

“Well… this is a bit ridiculous. Entirely unprofessional really, wouldn’t you say?”

“Oh, I don’t know. I actually managed to snag a peach pie at yesterday’s fundraiser and let me just say it was literally the best thing I’ve ever put in my–”

“THAT WAS YOU!?!?”

Shura’s cat problem

Shura absolutely adores cats and is a very proud self-proclaimed cat person. He thinks Yurio’s cat magnetism is the best magic in the world. Unfortunately, he did not inherit it, which leads to much heartbreak for his poor glass heart, which he did inherit from his mother…
