“Ladies and Gentlemen, Walt Disney World is proud to present the Happily Ever After Fireworks.” The jovial announcer cheered through the speaker. The Magic Kingdom was packed with thousands of other guest who were just as excited as you were to see the fireworks that would end such an incredible day. Now you’ve been to Disney World more times than you can count, so nothing really surprised you. However this time it was special because Shawn was here spending a whole week with you in the most happiest place on Earth. What you didn’t know was what Shawn had in store for you.

Starman

So this is something I wanted to write for the better part of the last year but never really found the right words. Now, with the anniversary just a couple days ago, I finally feel like I can post it. It’s short, but somewhat personal. It’s not really a tribute because I don’t think I could ever do this brilliant man justice, but it’s… something.

Beware, sad Magnus ahead.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Alec didn’t think much of the music he heard as soon as he entered Magnus’ apartment.

It wasn’t unusual for the warlock to listen to something while he worked. Sometimes it was classical music, or operas, or even traditional songs from cultures long forgotten. Sometimes it was rock or metal, blasting from the magically enhanced speakers so loudly that the windows shook in their frames. Sometimes it was modern pop, things that Alec had heard playing from mundane phones or performed on the streets or in subway stations. There didn’t seem to be any distinguishable pattern to it, as far as Alec could tell. Magnus just listened to whatever music fit his mood at the time.

Alec hung his bow and quiver up in the closet along with his leather jacket, and the song ended and another began. He stopped for a moment, listening to the lyrics about a man waiting in the stars, which didn’t make much sense to Alec. Even so, he was pretty sure he had heard this song somewhere before.

He moved to the living room, where he expected to find his boyfriend. He did not, however, expect to see Magnus sitting on the floor, staring vacantly into space and clutching a handful of wet tissues.

My April ‘17 Book Haul

I’ve had this idea of doing more then just meme’s on here for a while. April was the first month I actually kept track of what I was doing as far as reading and buying books goes, which surprises me as April has not been a kind month to my family.

So below is the list of books that I have bought in this past month. The bolded titles are books I have finished reading, and the italics are books I am currently reading. I will also be posting a picture of all the books listed later ( if I can find my phone in order to actually take the picture XD ). If you have read any of these books listed let me know! Did you enjoy them?

Feminist Fiction Masterpost

People expressed interest in a book recommendation master post of feminist fiction, as there is obviously a lack of such, for those of us tired of reading the same misogynist bullshit. I’ve compiled a list of the fiction I’ve read, you might not agree with my assessment - if so, please excuse me.

Waaaay back when, someone asked you about 'sound pictures'. You said you needed 29 magic speakers, 3 one-use magic artifacts, 3 high-level unicorns, and a fiddlehead. You said only the fiddlehead works again after that. My question is, what happens to the unicorns? Do their horns fall off after the process or something?

They kinda just… know too much, you know? It’s a bit taxing and no pony has wanted to do it more than once.

It wasn’t very practical.

A Thing About You

Summary: When he first started noticing it he thought it was an Emma thing. It was a Killian thing. Also on FF.net
Rating:
 KL for Killian Love
Word Count: 3 000+

I just need him to feel loved, ok?

When he first started noticing it he thought it was an Emma thing. And it only made him love her more.

///

The first time they actually ate together at Granny’s they had breakfast and he let her order for him. Emma called for pancakes and waffles and allowed him to try both and choose which one he wanted (he wanted the pancakes, of course).

He still remembers the way her cheeks flushed prettily under his awed gaze and the way she struggled to give him at annoyed look.

“What? I’m letting you choose breakfast, not our kids’ names!”

Yeah, that didn’t help much.

“Oh God! I didn’t-I-Not that we-I mean, no, I- Ugh! Just eat your pancakes!”

And he did. But she kept stealing glances at him. Observing the amount of chocolate sauce he poured over his breakfast, the way he cut the dough into four perfectly identical triangles and the way he left the slightly burned ones for last because they were just that little bit better.

The day he has breakfast at her apartment for the first time Emma makes him pancakes. Four identical triangle piles, slightly burned, with the perfect amount of chocolate sauce on top (which is a lot because chocolate in the Enchanted Forest was always bitter and here, ironically, it’s magical).

She studiously avoids his gaze so he has to settle for thanking her with a chocolate-flavoured kiss (it’s not that big of a sacrifice).
