Oh, the difference a year can make! Lily was infinitely more comfortable this time around. Elizabeth loved her costume and even put us on her Instagram story! We didn’t know Cobie was going to be there until a few days before, but I knew we had to get a photo with both these awesome ladies if we could. They were both so lovely and great yesterday - and their panel was hilarious too. Another great con day down in the books. :)
// i’ve had tumblr for the past five years and since september of 2016 (as a senior in high school) i’ve lurked studyblrs, watched youtube videos, and reblogged posts of bullet journals/notes/study spaces/etc on my main, so now that i’m entering uni i broke down and made a studyblr //
my name’s nico!! [he/him/his]
i live on the east coast of the us
i’m going to be 18 in august
i have a main blog where i’ll probably be reblogging things back and forth from this blog and vice versa..i’ve been unsuccessful in having multiple blogs in the past because i like everything in one place but i feel like having a 1d/multi blog restricted me from being a real part of the studyblr community (perhaps at my own doing)
i’m attending a private liberal arts jewish uni in the fall where i’ll be commuting (i got a full scholarship so i’m #ZeroDollarsInDebt but, in case you were wondering, i’m not jewish)
my major is creative writing and my minor is queer studies but i’m hoping to explore french and art in college and hopefully double major in something (tbd)
i love reading, writing, & art (even though i often times fail to do any of it, especially the latter, which i’m hoping taking art classes will fix)
i spend way too much money for someone who hasn’t been brought up rich. i spend most of my time not at school working, and own wicked expensive art materials that i never use because of this (think: copic markers and fancy paint brushes)
my taste in music leans toward indi/alternative – some of my favorite bands/artists’ as of right now are: bastille, khalid, harry styles (you gotta!!), the xx, youth lagoon, mgmt, awolnation, etc.
the classes i’ll be taking this fall:
aids: science, society, and policy
i’ve been doing a research project over the summer (for fun because i’m lame) about the lgbt community and its history and aids has always been a topic of intrigue for me so !!!
intro to drawing
which scares me half to death because art is something that takes a long time to get good at and i, tragically, am not (good at art, that is)
which will be really cool!!! i’m half acadian so my dad’s side of the family all speak french and i can’t wait to learn more about my culture…i’ve also been doing duolingo every day for about two weeks as preparation since i took spanish in high school
university writing seminar
which is so fucking cool!! it’s a required course called “britney, bronies, and beliebers: fans, culture, and society” and is literally all about fandom culture
creative writing workshop
hence the creative writing major lol
why a studyblr?
i never realize how bad my anxiety is until i acknowledge how abnormal my obsession with productivity is
doing nothing stresses me the fuck out
i’m a total school hoe (although not stereotypically nerdy – like i haven’t even read harry potter)
i never make original posts and i want to start!!
i also really want to make like-minded friends on tumblr and hopefully creating my own content will be more inviting
the studyblrs i’ve been “lurking” on and that everyone interested in studyblrs should follow tbh (in no particular order):
were… different. After being bitten by a snake that was in illegal animal
experimentation, they had gained the ability to talk to and control snakes
which enabled them to befriend almost any snake. It seemed as an unlikely power
since they always hated snakes or any sort of reptile but since they got their
powers, they found out they meant no harm and immediately began to love them.
(Y/N) began to love them so much, she kept two as their pets, one being an
albino python and despite the team’s major objections, a vibrant orangish-red
bush viper. No one like the idea of having a venomous snake roaming around the
tower but (Y/N) promised they wouldn’t cause any harm.
loved (Y/N) with all her heart but she hated
their snakes. She was afraid of snakes to begin with and when she heard (Y/N) got
a venomous snake as a pet, she had a near freak out. On multiple occasions,
they would try to get her to hold the python but she constantly refused. Why on
earth would she want to hold something that could squeeze the life out of her,
even though it was a small python. She tried to avoid the snakes at all cost
but it didn’t help that she wanted to spend time with (Y/N) but every time they
did, it seemed like one of their snakes was looking at her creepily. She also
felt as if the snakes were planning to kill her or take over SHIELD or
something. It sounded stupid but (Y/N) would talk about their conversations, crazy
thoughts and ideas and it never ceased to creep her out but most of the time,
she never knew what they talked about. As much as she wanted to get rid of
them, she knew (Y/N) loved those snakes and didn’t want to see them unhappy so, she pushed her fear away just for (Y/N).
had a day off and she wanted was to spend it with (Y/N) so, she heads over to
the Avenger tower to go see what they were up to. She walks through the
elevators, in a more casual outfit than usual, and she sees Natasha making
coffee in the kitchen. “Hey Nat.” Natasha turns, looks up, giving a warm smile
and Maria sends one back.
Maria, looking for (Y/N)?” Maria nods and Natasha begins to sip her coffee as
she leans against the counter. “They should be coming out in a sec.” As if
right on cue, (Y/N) walks in, hands rubbing their eyes, trying to rid themself
of being groggy and they give a sleepy smile when they see their girlfriend.
M.” (Y/N) mumbles out with a smile and Maria goes for a hug before emitting a
squeak, recoiling quickly noticing a white and orange snake wrapped around
their shoulders. (Y/N) stands confused at their girlfriend’s actions and
Natasha begins to chuckle at Maria’s scared expressions.
great Maria Hill is scared of snakes? When were you planning on telling (Y/N)?”
Natasha teases and Maria looks over, sending daggers her way but it only causes
Natasha to chuckle more.
are you not scared of that?” Maria spits out as she points to the orange viper
on (Y/N)’s shoulder and it sends a hiss towards her causing her to back away
from them more. Natasha smirks before sipping her coffee nonchalantly.
don’t worry, I’m intimidated by him but we’re cool. Dash and I are good pals.”
Maria stares at Natasha like she’s grown two heads and she chuckles before
pushing herself off the counter. “Anyways, have fun you two.” She taunts, as
she walks out of the kitchen and into the training room. Maria averts her eyes to
(Y/N) who has concern etched on their face as they stare into her blue eyes.
They gently grab the snakes off their shoulder and place them on the counter
before walking over to Maria.
didn’t you ever tell me?” (Y/N) utters out with guilt in their voice and Maria
purses her lips together before grabbing their hand in hers.
know how happy they make you. I didn’t want you to think I wouldn’t love you
because of them.” Mari confesses as she steps impossibly closer to them,
placing her arms over their shoulders and leaning her head against theirs. Damn, she has a soft spot for (Y/N). A
small smile grows on (Y/N)’s face as they stare into her beautiful eyes.
love you.” (Y/N) whispers out as they take a glance at Maria’s lips, wanting
nothing but to kiss them and Maria notices before slowly leaning forward, capturing
their soft lips into a kiss. (Y/N) emits a soft moan as they place a hand on
Maria’s face and she smiles against them as she pulls back, giving a content
sigh as she stares lovingly at them.
have the day off, want to watch some movies and eat junk food?” Maria asks with a
smile still plastered on her face and (Y/N)’s smile widens.
course, I just need to put Dash and Jinx away so they don’t scare Clint or
something.” (Y/N) states as they pick up the orange viper and they stop before
grabbing the python, confusing Maria. “Would you like to hold her? She’s
harmless but you don’t have to if you don’t want to.” Maria freezes, hesitating
slightly but bravely nods her head, trusting (Y/N), knowing they wouldn’t do
anything to hurt her. Their face breaks out into a wide smile before excitingly
Well, just hold out your hand and she’ll wrap around you a little but don’t be
scared. She’s just trying to stay secure so she won’t fall.” (Y/N) utters out
as they pick up the white python and gently place it in Maria’s hands. Maria
holds her breath as the snake begins to slowly wrap around her arm but rather loosely
so it doesn’t hurt and she stares surprised at how gentle it is.
isn’t… that bad.” Maria slowly says as she turns her hands, observing the white snake
that’s perfectly happy where it is. “I still think they’re planning to kill me
and take over SHIELD.” (Y/N) giggles at her statement.
Maria chuckles out and (Y/N) places the snake their holding on their shoulder, allowing
it to wrap around them as they walk to their bedroom.
love you, M! They talk about how much they love you all the time and if not that,
they just gossip about the team. They especially like to talk
about Clint and Sam.” Maria is amused by this new information and she can’t
help but laugh. (Y/N) laughs themself before an idea pops in their head. “Later, we should scare Clint by putting them in the vents.” Maria
laughs harder, looking down at the snake currently in her hands before a devilish
smirk appears on her face. She would
probably get in trouble with Fury but ,oh, this is going to be fun.
That’s when Maria realized, snakes weren’t that scary after all.
“I can’t believe I actually made it here. Didn’t think I’d go through with this, you know… marrying someone who’s a complete stranger. But here I am, slightly lost and disorientated from the journey… but here.”
