can help in social situations and it makes people watching a bit more fun, but
it’s unsettling as you can imagine. The worst part is everyone has one, so I see
them everywhere. Honestly, I’m just glad the demons don’t seem to realize I can
and if you’re curious, I have tried to see my own demon, but I’m pretty sure
it’s stuck on my back or something so using a mirror can’t really help. Not to
mention they never show up in photos or videos.
I’ve had this gift since I can remember, though fortunately my parents
never took me seriously about it. The only person I’ve really opened up to is
Sally, a nice little blonde girl in my 6th grade math class. She likes to hear
about what the demons look like and hopes one day we can write a comic about
most common one is addiction. He’s a tiny, thin little man-imp with a bulbous
head and unkempt hair who twitches around a lot. He looks paranoid and whispers in
the afflicted person’s ear constantly, sitting on their shoulder and wringing
his seven-knuckled hands together.
there’s anxiety, a sort of shadow-clown who mimics someone’s steps in the most
ridiculous fashion. She’s almost like one of those wacky waving inflatable
arm-flailing tube things, if they were evil and never left you alone. I’ve
learned quickly that laughing at them - as much as they can be funny at times -
really hurts the person’s feelings, though it does make anxiety act even sillier.
is a small little leech that sucks on the head, drooling over everything and
never opening its eyes. It floats along when the person moves, never letting
go. Sometimes I think I can see the tail ghosting into another dimension, as
though it’s trying to pull the person away.
disorder is a short, naked, hairy, fat man who walks on backwards hand-feet,
staring at his victim while patting his belly and licking his lips. He moves
his eyebrows around a lot, which is kind of weird, but it’s worse when he rips
off his arm and eats it like his life depends on it. It grows back, but still.
demon is abuse. I’ve seen it on others, but I haven’t told Sally - I’m sure she
knows, anyway. She’s a gaunt blue fairy who flitters around with a little pouch
putting makeup on Sally and herself. She always looks worried, even when she
pauses to smile nervously.
and I got to class a little early today and were chatting when a new classmate
walked in. I couldn’t help but stare. He was the only person I’d ever seen
without a demon attached. He took a seat a row or two away from us and looked
straight at me, never once blinking. When I didn’t respond to one of Sally’s
questions, she nudged me.

A/N: Hi guys, it’s been a while but, I think I’ve come up with something that you are going to enjoy. It’s a new series that I hope I can complete but, it’s open ended and has no continuing plot line, just a common theme which is the names. Each story is inspired by a shade of paint and each will be named for them. Now enough of my rambling, I hope you all like it.
It was a bright Saturday afternoon when Stiles and Lydia went out to the local coffee house. All around them were several high school and college students catching up on their work. The room smelled like fresh brewed coffee and it made Lydia’s stomach make a grueling sound.
Stiles looked at her from above his laptop screen as she clutched her stomach. When she noticed others staring, her face turned red and a sheepish grin crept on her face.
Lydia wasn’t stupid, however. She knew most of the staring girls weren’t distracted by her growling stomach. The boy sitting two feet in front of her was the apparent center of their attention. His focused eyes and dark hair that matched the very coffee they were drinking were hard to miss.
“Stop that,” she said suddenly.
The boy’s eyes traveled to hers again in confusion. “Stop what?”
Lydia rolled her eyes and he chuckled in response before returning to his note taking. She turned in her seat and lifted her bag which was hanging on the back of her chair.
The girl stuck her hand in the tote bag and groped around before wrapping her hand around the object she was looking for. Lydia retrieved her wallet from her bag and hung it back on her chair, trying to make sure it didn’t drag on the ground.
When she unzipped her wallet, Stiles looked up again. “You need some cash?” he asked before lifting his bum from the chair to reach his back pocket. He quickly pulled out his wallet, but only after Lydia had found a crisp five dollar bill.
“I’m okay, but thanks.”
Lydia stood from her chair and smoothed out the wrinkles in her green skirt. It fell a few inches above the knee, but it was long enough that she didn’t have to worry about her butt being exposed. Stiles didn’t have to worry either.
The line for the barista bar was long, but moved quickly. One of the baristas, Kira, was moving remarkably fast, preparing drink after drink.
At the register was an employee named Scott. Lydia could see him from the back of the line, which meant a lot considering her height of five foot three.
When Lydia reached the front of the line, Scott flashed a charming smile and asked, “Hi, my name is Scott and welcome to the Beacon Hills Coffeehouse how may I help you?”
Lydia stood on the tips of her toes to get a good look at everything in the display case. Breads, sandwiches, and cookies came in different flavors and variations.
After a good fifteen seconds of contemplation, Lydia decided on a bottle of water and buttered croissant. “Name?” the boy asked.
Scott entered her total and she handed the five dollar bill to the boy. He smiled as he worked the cash register and returned the change to Lydia.
Before going to pick up her order, Lydia placed the two quarters in the tip jar and shoved the one dollar bill back in her wallet. “Thank you.” Scott beamed.
Lydia grabbed her water bottle and tapped her freshly painted fingernails on the marble counter as Kira called out several names.
Kira was about the same height as Lydia with short and straight black hair. Everyone had figured she was filled up with coffee herself by the way she was moving. It was only her and Scott but, she was doing the job of three more people.
“Lydia!” Kira shouted before placing the warm croissant in a paper bag and sliding it onto the counter.
Lydia picked up the brown bag and opened it to smell the warm pastry. She closed her eyes and relished in the pleasing scent.
As she made her way back to the table, she spotted a girl walking past Stiles. As she walked, her hand swiped across the side of his laptop. Stiles looked up at her and gave a friendly smile before picking up a note she dropped on his keyboard.
Before he could open it, Lydia had tucked herself back into her seat and was chugging her water. “What’s that?” Lydia asked not so innocently.
“Nothing. Just a phone number,” Stiles shrugged as he threw it in his backpack. Lydia rolled her eyes in response as she began to devour her croissant.
Stiles felt her envy oozing from her ears. He grabbed her hand on the edge of the table. “It’s nothing okay. I can’t just throw it away when she’s watching.”
Lydia nodded and continued to eat her buttery breakfast. At one point Stiles tried to sneak a piece from her, but he didn’t have to. Lydia broke off a chunk and gave it to the boy voluntarily.
When she was finished, Lydia grabbed a napkin and wiped her mouth, accidentally smearing her lipstick along with the grease. Her reflection in her computer screen angered her as she searched for her lipstick in her bag.
“I’ll be right back,” she groaned as she trotted to the bathroom with her bag over her shoulder.
Lydia looked in the mirror as she cleaned the red streaks of makeup off of her face. Angrily she searched for her lipstick in her small makeup pouch, trying not to drop it.
When she finally felt a tube of lipstick, she read the name at the bottom and popped off the cap. The color, “Flirt Alert,” was just between red an orange, just like Lydia’s hair. It was one of her most favorite and boldest colors.
Using a paper towel, Lydia cleaned the edges of her lips and stuck her makeup back in her tote bag. She fixed her hair in the mirror before pushing the bathroom door open and walking back into the cafe.
When she entered the cafe, the strong scent of espresso that she had gotten used to flooded her senses once again. However, before she could sit down in her seat, she noticed another girl in her place.
The girl was a long haired brunette who was doing her hardest to get Stiles’ attention. He was trying his best to focus on his work without being rude and ignoring her attempts at a conversation.
As Lydia neared the table, the girl noticed and bid Stiles a farewell. He responded, but only looked up at her slightly.
Lydia sat back down in her warm seat and stared down Stiles from above her laptop screen. “What did she want?”
“She said we have AP Biology together and she wanted notes.”
“You don’t take AP Biology”
“Yeah, exactly,” Stiles chuckled.
Lydia was about to respond but she heard the girl and her friends giggling from across the room. They were all looking in Stiles’ direction, but he was painfully oblivious.
In response, Lydia stood and leaned over the table. In one swift motion, she grabbed Stiles shirt collar and pulled his lips to hers. The kiss surprised the boy, but when he got into it, it turned sloppy and hot.
When she was finished, Lydia sat back in her chair and continued working as the girls sat silent in their booth.
On the other side of the table, Stiles was trying to reevaluate his situation. Lydia looked up at him and laughed.
“What?” the boy asked.
Lydia gestured to her own lips before saying, “‘Flirt Alert’ looks good on you.”
Stiles’ face turned red as he found a napkin and wiped his girlfriend’s lipstick off of his face.
I finally got around to taking ‘what’s in my school bag’ photos *slow clap*
So, without further ado, this is what is in my (very large, very heavy) school bag on a typical class followed by studying at the library day:
Binder: the binder I carry depends on the day, but this past week it’s been my MUN binder with all the study guides, ROPs and guidelines for the upcoming conference. On other days, I carry binders of class slides or notes.
Notebook: this is a (very cheap) 5 subject notebook I use to make notes in class for 5 of the 8 modules I’m taking this semester. I decided to use a multi subject notebook since 5 of my classes are concentrated in just 2 days. This way, I only need to carry one notebook and don’t risk losing half my loose leaf notes by the end of the semester. For the rest of my modules, I use either a single subject notebook or binder.
Folder: I always keep a folder in my bag for any handouts, loose leaf notes etc. I might need to carry
Laptop: almost every time I go to the library, I have to have my laptop. I use it to make notes, research, listen to music, access pdf versions of my textbooks etc. I keep my laptop in a snap-on case from eBay and a sleeve by CaseLogic.
Βullet journal: pretty self explanatory. I carry my journal everywhere.
Wallet: also self explanatory. Always need to have some cash on me! My wallet is from Stradivarius.
Pencil pouch: this is my necessities pencil pouch. I keep basic blue and black pens, a couple of coloured pens, a couple of pencils and a set of skinny highlighters. I carry this pencil pouch everyday, and only if I’m going to the library I might carry extra pens/highlighters (see No9)
Make-up pouch: this is my makeup/necessities pouch. I keep things like lip balm, hand sanitiser, bobby pins, hair ties, lipstick, wipes etc. It looks small but there is a lot in this (seriously, I could make a separate post on all the things in this). This pouch is glittery silver and it’s from Shiseido.
Stabilo .88 mini set: this is a set of stabilo fineliners I got at the supermarket. They’re very small, compact and neatly organized so if I know I’ll be making notes I will carry these alongside my pencil pouch.
Sunglasses: self explanatory. My sunglasses are by Rayban and they are the wayfarer design.
ID/cards holder: this is a little notebook style card holder where I keep my ID, student ID, debit card, bus pass, metro card, membership cards etc. This this is a lifesaver - in case I loose my waller or it is stolen it saves me the trouble of re-issuing all of my cards.
Headphones +iPod: self explanatory. My iPod is not pictured cause I was using it to take pictures.
Phone: also self explanatory. My phone is a Nokia Lumia 930.
Not pictured: travel mug: I cannot live without coffee so my mug goes with me everywhere.
That’s it! This is what I carry with me to uni 99% of the time. I realise this looks like a lot - and it is. But I spend long hours at school and the library, as I can never get work done at home. Luckily, I live close to university, so I only commute for 15-30′ one way - less than an hour total. However, my bags are getting increasingly heavy so I am considering a backpack. So far, I am thinking of getting the Jansport Right Pack. Let me know what you think if you’ve used it - or any similar backpacks :)
This is my very first sigil! Statement is inspired @techno-cirque(x). This is for wanting to feel cute and confident!
Use this however you like. On how I use the sigil: I wrote it on a small sturdy paper (spare watercolor paper) then I charge this by spraying rose dew mist, and placed it in my makeup pouch. Another suggestion is to write/tape it on a mirror.
admin: clover character count: 8646 plot: you live a fairly normal boring college life until a new student appears! paring: jinyoung X reader genre: FLUFFY HERE
Note: the picture taking part of this chapter was inspired by Jay Park and Hoody!!! You guys should check out that music video it’s GOLD.
You had no idea that Jinyoung was blowing up your phone with texts.
When you woke up you didn’t feel as bad as you should’ve when you had a hangover. All you felt was a small headache. You woke up and looked at the small digital clock on the night stand. It read 7:00am you have a class in an hour. You jumped up and with that, the memories of last night started to flood in. YOUNGJAE!!!! You rushed to open your phone ignoring the notifications on the screen and went to call Youngjae. It rang twice before he answered and you were met with his tired voice.
“ Y/N???” He called out.
“ Youngjae! I’m sorry I was all over you last night! I was so drunk I’m a really weird drunk. Please forgive me you’re such a good person to have as a friend!” You squealed into the phone.
“Woah Y/N it’s okay!!! I forgive you I was drunk as well so you have to forgive me too! I’m glad you think I’m a good friend to have!” He giggled at you.
“Thank god! Okay I have to go I’m gonna be late for class. See you later!!”
You heard him say bye as you hung up the phone and ran to the bathroom connected to the room you were in. You pulled the small emergency makeup pouch you put together a while ago and started to brush your teeth and washed face. Then you got to work on your face with natural make up. You hurried and put your hair in a bun grabbed the leggings you kept there and grabbed one of Jaebum’s cool big shirts and ran out the apartment grabbing your phone and running.
You were tired to say the least and you got to class 5 minutes late. You said hi to Jinyoung but he didn’t give you the time of day. He was ignoring you? You opened your phone and went through apps. Apparently it was gonna rain so hard today it would flood in your area. Your hair wasn’t working with you so you took the bun down and let your hair fall to your shoulders. You laid your head down on the table and took a nap. You felt tugs at your hair but you didn’t mind, it was actually soothing it made you smile. The touches were light and soon enough you were fully asleep.
You felt Jinyoung shake you awake and then walk off. You got up to go getting your stuff off the desk when you saw a small crumpled up paper. You opened and it was Jinyoung’s hand writing it read.
“Meet me at my place.”
You looked at it for a while, questioning it. You decided to just do it what was the worst that could happen? When you got outside it was pouring. You skipped to Jinyoung enjoying the rain. It was your favorite. When you got to Jinyoung’s you were soaked. You knocked on his door. You turned your back to the door. Huh your makeup was still on thank god for whoever made water proof stuff. That’s when you felt Jinyoung grab your hand and pull you in his dorm.
“Woah you’re soaked you didn’t have a jacket or anything?” He said while walking to a closet to go get some towels.
“No I like the rain so I usually don’t.” You explained while taking off your shoes.
He came back to you with some towels, that’s when you spotted the hickey on his neck.
“Did you get lucky last night?!” You winked and poked his hickey.
You took the towels and sat on the ground drying your hair.
“That cheerleader gave you that right?? Why did you want me here anyway??”
“Why did you choose Youngjae to dance with you? And why didn’t you answer my calls and texts afterward?”
“ Well first Youngjae because he was one of the only people not already dancing with a girl and I was drunk, I’m a horny drunk so I needed to dance. Second I haven’t been on my phone since yesterday afternoon. I haven’t checked for texts and such.”
“ Okay okay.” He rubbed the back of his neck and sat down next to you.
“ if that’s all I’m gonna go home.” You said while getting up.
“Are you dumb? Do you hear the hail outside? Just stay here still it lets up.”
“Well okay can I take a shower? I’m cold I wanna take a hot shower.”
“Yea sure it’s in the room down the hall, I’ll leave a tshirt or something for you In the room.”
You nodded and started to walk down the hallway.
“ Y/N please try your best to slip in the shower while your at it!” He smiled brightly at you.
You rolled your eyes and continued walking. You got into the bathroom and locked the door. Taking a shower should feel right. You turned on the shower and got in. You let the water go through your hair reminding you about when you played with Jinyoung’s. You got a warm feeling but you didn’t know why. You finished in the shower and dried off and wrapped a yourself in a towel walking into the room attached. He left out a big pink shirt and some socks. What’s this gonna do for you? You had to just put it on and deal with it. You walked out of the room and down the hallway where Jinyoung was. He was sitting on the couch on his phone.
“Jinyoung!!! I’m bored!!!”
“ What do you want to do?”
You paced left and right trying to come up with an idea when it hit you, but would he want to do this?”
“ I have a lot of storage on my phone lets do a photo shoot like those ulzzang couples.” You said with a grin. “If you don’t do it, I’ll keep making fun of you and that hickey.” You teased him still smiling wide.
“ Fine asshole just let me change into a turtleneck to cover this hickey.”
With that he walked off and went to change his shirt meanwhile you grabbed the speaker in his kitchen and connected with bluetooth and played a playlist from on your phone. You swayed away from the kitchen and Jinyoung was coming down the hallway.
“Okay how do we do this?”
I’m response you pulled out your phone and smiled. You grabbed his hand and sat him on the couch and got behind him and posed cutely. Jinyoung took your phone from you so he could take the picture and made a cute face as well. Then you did other poses. In one you hugged Jinyoung’s head and smiled wide while he made a pouty face.
You guys took pics together with foods trying to be aesthetic. Then you took pics of Jinyoung and he took pics of you. You guys were full of giggles and pouty faces. Both of you took a dancing break and just funnily danced to songs that came on. Then you would take more cute couple pictures, the exact opposite of what you guys actually were. It was nice to play pretend and hold hands and make a big heart out of your arms with him. You guys went to Jinyoung’s computer. He open the photo booth app and clicked the different filters. First was the dazed birds filter, which he was about to use alone until you jumped in the picture. He also used the roller coaster one, so you both made ugly scarred faces.
You guys were acting 4 when you started sliding on the hardwood floor in your socks and slipped. You both started laughing so hard you started crying and you snorted.
“Y/N did you just snort” He said breaking into laughter even louder.
You covered your face with your hands blushing but soon started to burst into laughter as well. You both were on the ground laughing. When his stomach let out a loud growl. Both of you paused then continued to laugh at his stomach growling so loud. The laughs stopped and you both got up and sat on the couch.
“Can we order food?”
“Ya what do you want? I think I want pizza!! Does that sound good?” He asked enthusiastically.
“YES!!” You yelled.
He left the room to go order and you started to think. He isn’t that bad when you get to know him. You scrolled through the pictures smiling at the goofy pics you had taken. You felt weird again. Was it Jinyoung?
You guys finished eating the pizza and started watched family guy.
“You know you’re similar to stewie.” You stated yawning.
He yawned at you as a response. You got up to go put your glass of water in the sink and when you came back Jinyoung was asleep. You looked at his sleeping state and smiled. Once again he looked peaceful. You lifted his head from the couch carefully and sat down where it was before and set his sleeping head in your lap. He was so cute. You couldn’t stop thinking about how cute he was while you looked down at his sleeping face. You brushed your hands threw his hair. You didn’t really care if he woke up at this point, it would be worth it seeing him like this.
You soon fell asleep as well.
You woke up when Jinyoung picked you up and took your keys from your pocket. You were half and sleep and didn’t really care about what was happening. With instinct you wrapped your legs around Jinyoung’s waist and put your arms around his neck. He carried you to your dorm and after a figuring out which room was yours from your roommate took you to your bed and carefully dropped you on to it. He tucked you in and when he started to leave you whined. He walked back to you and kissed your forehead making you blush and smile in your half asleep state.
