Things about a military relationship that i hate pt a million

I hate how hard this is. I hate how I’m in bed alone and all I get are a handful of texts. I hate how I spend most nights crying over how much I miss you and I can’t tell you because it only makes things harder because you have no control over this. And god I just hate not knowing when we’ll ever truly be together. Most of our relationship has been goodbyes and texts. We’ve spent more nights apart than we ever have together. I hate going through day to day shit without you, every single day. And everything makes it worse. I miss you all the time. So much that I can feel myself breaking inside. And I’m so tired of saying and hearing that it’ll all be worth it one day because everyday I wonder if that’s true. If so many nights of sobbing is worth something we don’t know will happen. Or when it’ll happen. And god I just really hate knowing that most of our lives will be goodbyes and maybes. As each day goes by I don’t know if I’m even strong enough for this.

Everyday Will Be Like a Holiday by wirewrappedlily 

(1,395 I General I Complete)  *soldier!Derek

When Stiles woke at ten the next morning, Derek was curled tight around him, Erica’s head in the dip of Derek’s waist, and Isaac’s thin form thrown over their legs, Scott lying around both Stiles and Isaac while Lydia slept in as small a ball as possible on Stiles’s chest, Boyd’s hand on her head as if she’d had a nightmare. Stiles smiled to himself, going back to staring at Derek’s sleeping features. The curve of his eyelashes and the relaxed shape of his mouth. He wanted to trace his finger over the line of Derek’s nose, leave hickies over the straight edge of Derek’s jaw. It was new and old and so good Stiles wanted to cry.

Derek was home.

Stiles was trying to be the best dad he could be for his little girl after Derek was drafted into the military 3 months ago. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t feel like crying when Alex tells him that all she wants for Christmas is for Santa to bring her papa back home.

“Honey! I’m home!” Stiles shouted into the empty apartment as he moved quickly through to the kitchen, dumping his backpack onto bench before crossing to the fridge and crossing off another day on the calendar. A month and a half. That was how long was left until Derek came home, until he was safe. Everyday felt like a lifetime to Stiles.

Welcome to Whale Week! This week we’ll be bringing you photos and information about the whales that call national marine sanctuaries home. 

This is Salt, one of the most famous humpback whales in the world today. She was first spotted in Massachusetts Bay in the 1970s, and has been seen in Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary just about every year since then. She was one of the first northern humpback whales to be recognized at breeding grounds at Silver Bank off the coast of the Dominican Republic, providing proof of the humpback whale migratory route in the North Atlantic. 

Salt has had 14 calves and many grandchildren – and in 2014, she became a great-grandmother! She appears to be a leader among her peers, often diving and resurfacing before others when in a group of feeding whales.

dannyxv  asked:

What was the origins part of this au like? (Besides them getting their kwami) was there an umbrella scene? What's the twins' relationships with Nino/Alya(and Chloe for that matter)

@oceanspray5 and I have been discussing this. 

Marinette, after the initial akuma screw up, would definitely have just given the earrings to Marin and never dealt with the responsibility of being a Miraculous holder if she had been given the chance. So to make that not an option, we figured the best way for Marinette to get her resolve to be Ladybug would be for Marin to get hurt alongside Alya. Adrien handles all the Chat things this episode too, since he was the first one to put on the ring and suit up. 

It’s not about Origins but I’ll mention it here… The Pixelator episode seems to follow Origins canonically so I thought it would be the perfect situation for both Marin and Adrienne to shine in their siblings place. Marinette would get trapped in a photograph which would force Marin to have to save the day as Lady Beetle. Likewise, Adrien never gets out of the photo with Chloe so Adrienne has to help the whole time instead. I dunno how they had the Kwami/Miraculous on them… maybe Plagg was begging Adrienne for food at the time and she had the ring that day and Marin got a hold of Marinette’s bag with Tikki and the earrings in it after Marinette had been put in the photo. Anyway, that is how this pair meet and team up. It causes all sorts of confusion across Paris when suddenly their new heroes were the opposite gender haha.

BACK to Orgins tho…

Nino I can imagine taking the Agreste twins under his wings since they’re hopeless and becomes pretty good friends to both of them. Alya still befriends Marinette and then Marin though she isn’t as close to him at first. She gets along with Adrienne but it’s about the same degree as she does with Adrien in canon. Nino is friends with Marin too but they don’t have a lot to talk about? So they don’t really hang out as much. And I can’t remember if I answered about this privately or publicly before, but Chloe doesn’t like either Marin or Marinette and tries to be buddy buddy with the Agrestes (tho her friendship with Adrienne is much more shallow).

The gum incident still happens, with Adrien coming across as the main offender and they initially dislike Adrienne alongside him because “If they’re a friend of Chloe, I want nothing to do with them.” Adrien still apologizes and explains himself to Marinette alone so the umbrella scene remains intact. He doesn’t say anything to Marin (since it was Marinette’s seat) but I can see Adrienne separately explaining it to Marin in her brother’s place. His open understanding and kindness once he knows that she and her brother is nothing like Chloe, makes her fall for him if you prefer the version of this au where Adrienne likes Marin and Marin likes Chat Noire that is. If not, then maybe her gratitude to his understanding makes him fall for her?? idk Then they exit the school and Adrienne catches up with Adrien and they leave both excited to have made new friends, and Marin walks back home with Marinette wondering where she got the umbrella from.

We’ve Gotcha

Title: We’ve Gotcha

Characters:  Gibbs, DiNozzo, McGee, Y/N (reader) -no pairing

Word count: 982

Warnings: fluffish, slight angst

A/N: I have a lot of Gibbs coming out rather close together, so I hope you don’t mind. </3 I hope you all enjoy this! Feedback is welcomed and appreciated! I love you all so much! <3 <3

This was requested by @maybeinmylife: Could you write an imagine in which the reader starts to get hit on or in general feel uncomfortable at the office and the team (NCIS) comes to the rescue

It was just you and the suspect in the interrogation room.  You allowed the guy to be freed of his handcuffs; against Gibbs’ wishes of course.  You thought he would open up more if you displayed a small amount of trust.  You quickly started to regret your decision.

“I’m glad I get to talk to the sexier of the two agents,” the man sneered.  “You’d look a lot better if you undid a few of those buttons.”

You rolled your eyes, slapping the file onto the metal table.  “How about you tell me why your fingerprints are all over our crime scene,” you suggested.  “How do you know the Lieutenant?  Was he a friend?”  You spread out photos of the deceased Lieutenant, making sure that he looked them over.  “It would be best if you answered honestly, because I will find out the truth.  You’re already in enough trouble as is.”

Explore the Museum’s Digital Special Collections for #ThrowbackThursday. English naturalist Philip Henry Gosse advocated studying living organisms in their natural habitats. He spent eight years observing marine communities on the British coastline, and also in aquariums that he constructed at home. Gosse is famous for coining the term “aquarium.” His handbook on how to make and maintain aquariums set off a Victorian craze for collecting and keeping live marine organisms at home. Gosse recommended the ancient wrasse as a species hardy enough for amateur aquariums. Its natural behavior is to lurk under rock ledges, as pictured here.

Great Barrier Reef - Queensland, Australia 

Stretching 2,300km along the coast of Queensland, Australia, The Great Barrier Reef occupies the space of 70 million football fields. It is the only living structure that can be seen from space. More than one third of the worlds coral species can be found in the Great Barrier Reef. The marine park is home to 30 species of whale and dolphin, and 6 species of marine turtle. Sharks and saltwater crocodiles also live in the region. 

Boat tours are the most popular way to see the Reef. Boat options can range from dinghies, to super yachts, glass bottom boats, and kayaks. Scuba diving and snorkeling are most common activity on offer. In 2014, Google launched an underwater street view of the Great Barrier Reef. 

I am sorry I have hurt you. But if I thought I was needed at home more than here, I would come home. Things are going well at home. So where do I belong? This is an unusual time in our nation’s history. The unrest around the world is paralleled only a handful of times in history. Young men are asking questions–hard questions. Much of the focus of the entire world is on Vietnam, The incompetency and the wrongs committed in Vietnam are staggering. But through it all I see a little light. Some men choose to fight on the streets. Some choose to fight in the universities. Some choose to fight in the parliaments. My choice is between two options–fight in Vietnam or shut up. I choose Vietnam. If I am to contribute, it must be Vietnam. And when I get home, you too will see that little light.
