matching for the holidays

tygermama  asked:

Padme had no idea really why Satine sent her a bottle of very very good Mandalorian vodka, a cut crystal glass and a comm chip with Satine's personal comm channel programmed into it but she didn't have long to wait because when Anakin came home crowing about Obi Wan and /another/ secret marriage,well. She ran Satine and the first thing she said was "welcome to the family. YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH I NEED SOMEONE TO TALK TO ABOUT BEING MARRIED TO A JEDI!" then they got drunk.

Do you people understand how EXCITED Anakin would have been to spill the news to Padme? Like, he would have practically crashed his ship while landing onto that platform outside her living room and been like AHHHHHHHH OMG OMG OMG while flailing his arms around. That guy is the biggest shipper in the entirety of Star Wars and this is like his OTP just got made canon. 

Padme and Satine’s happy hour is going to be amazing. There is going to be a LOT of “…I know! Him too! Oh my God, what is their deal?” “He uses all your hair products up, doesn’t he?” 


Anakin: So, just like the girls, I guess you and I can start hanging out together more, too! You know. Be best friends. Spend all our time together. Holidays. Vacations. Dinners. Brunches. Matching tattoos. Share clothes.  
Obi-Wan: Anakin, we already are best friends, and I see you every single day. We worked together and we lived in the same apartment. I’m glad you’re excited, but I don’t think we can hang out any more than we already do. In fact I’m quite sure I can’t handle hanging out with you any more than I already do. 
Anakin: [clinging to Obi-Wan on the couch as he tries to struggle free, kissing him on the cheek] I’m just so HAPPY for yooooooou and meeeee and ALL OF US this is ALL SO GREAT


HaruRin Merman AU || Christmas exchange gift for @cryopods 

One day, while walking on a beach, 12 years old Rin noticed something very strange. At first he thought it was a huge fish, but then he came closer he was in for a shock. It wasn’t a fish! It was a merman, who was enjoying the sun away from strangers’ eyes. The beautiful creature got startled when he noticed the boy and disappeared in the water. Rin was so sad that he couldn’t even ask for the merman’s name. But he started come to the same place every day, hoping for a chance to meet the merman again. Five years have passed. Everybody tried telling Rin to stop spending his days on the beach, waiting for a creature which didn’t exist. They told him it was only his imagination and that he should stop living in a fantasy world. But Rin didn’t listen to them. He knew the merman was real. And he hoped that one day he’d meet him again - the beautiful merman with eyes as clear as water.


Festive icons I made for you and your number one

I can’t help it, I think it’s hilarious that it took an outing with Cait for the ‘romance of the century’ to get any sort of actual media mentions. Not the BAFTAS, not the Piaget party, not a holiday vacation. A rugby match. With Cait. Tell me again she’s not Queen Cait. 🙌👑👸

Wasn’t senior year supposed to feel…better than this?

You didn’t feel any different than before.  In fact, you felt a little more like a loser, mainly because you hadn’t all of a sudden become super cool, like you hoped would happen.

Sure, you had your friends, your family, a few college acceptances that were ready to go.  But you weren’t quite…

There were no words – you must just be in a funk.

Berena Post-Christmas Timeline

I know I’ve posted before about how impressed I am that the writers get at least one Berena scene or reference into every episode in spite of it being slightly on the back burner for now and the number of storylines they’re juggling, but we just did a rewatch of some of the post-Christmas stuff and it’s actually pretty striking how much story they’re telling with quite limited screen time.

So I started making a little timeline of what we know about how their relationship is progressing based on canon info. This is mostly a reference for me for potential later fic writing, but I thought some other folks might find it interesting too!

(This timeline assumes that in-show time is roughly parallel to real-world time, given that things like holidays and special occasions match up. Normal text is what we know for definite from canon info, italics are my commentary.)

Early January - Mid-January (I Do, I Do, I Do, Aces High, Stick or Twist)

During this period we know that neither Bernie nor Serena is at work, and that Bernie is spending most of her time taking care of Serena, and presumably Jason. At the end of this period Bernie supports Serena as she attempts unsuccessfully to return to work.

Given that they’ve technically only been a couple since late November, this is a pretty big demonstration of commitment from Bernie - their relationship is established enough that it’s appropriate for her to take around two weeks of compassionate leave to be Serena’s primary support. Possibly if Elinor hadn’t died they wouldn’t have been so thrown in at the deep end, but the foundation laid by their prior friendship and the trust between them means that it seems natural for Bernie to step up here.

Mid/Late-January - Mid-February (Stick or Twist, Daylight, Of Lions and Lambs, Losing Game, Four Letter Word)

Bernie is cranky and tired. She starts smoking again, blaming it on a “tough month”. Serena comes back to work at the very end of January. Bernie has arranged Serena’s schedule to ease her back in. They aren’t seeing each other much out of hours because Serena needs space, but on the ward they maintain their close rapport, but with an edge of tension. They are still close enough that it’s appropriate for Bernie to go through Serena’s bag to find her ringing phone. Bernie keeps an eye on Serena, talks frankly to her when she sees her struggling, calls her out for inappropriate behaviour on the ward, encourages her to attend counselling, and cites their romantic relationship as the reason she feels able to do those things. At the end of this period, Serena reaches out to Bernie again.

These episodes cover a period of Serena withdrawing from support, partly from other friends and colleagues (she ignores Ric’s call), but mainly from Bernie. This reminds me of the garden scene in Missing You Already - “Don’t be nice to me, you’ll make it worse.” Maintaining the appearance of coping has always been important to Serena, and since Bernie is the closest person to her right now and the person who has seen her at rock bottom in the immediate aftermath of Elinor’s death, she’s pushing her away to avoid Bernie’s love and sympathy. Also, as we learn a little later, Serena is struggling with not wanting to let go of her feelings of grief and pain. She knows that if she lets Bernie get close she will try to help her, and she isn’t ready to want that help yet. But their hug at the end of Four Letter Word, and Serena’s request for Bernie to come over later, is a turning point. Serena is missing Bernie too, and she can’t maintain the distance between them.

Late February - Mid-March (What We Pretend to Be, The Price We Pay, Other People’s Dreams, The Hangover, Growing Pains)

Serena is initially tense and abrasive on the ward, but she has at last started attending counselling, and towards the end of this period she seems to be coping somewhat better. We don’t see her and Bernie interact much, but when they do they seem more relaxed and comfortable with each other than previously, and they seem to be talking regularly at least at work. Bernie is protective of Serena on the ward and prioritises her emotional needs, sometimes to an inappropriate degree. Bernie is still not staying with Serena most nights (Serena’s up all night looking at mementos, the implication is she’s alone). Bernie is concerned that Serena is trying to turn Jasmine into a replacement for Elinor.

I think what we’re seeing here is Bernie and Serena finding their rhythm a bit again - Serena still needs space and they’re not staying over together much, but Bernie is very clearly looking out for Serena and they’re very much still on, which leaves the story in a good position for Bernie to support Serena through the angst we know is coming soon. (I would have liked to see a little bit more follow-up on the end of Four Letter Word, but I do think it’s safe to assume that they are gradually getting back to spending more leisure time together.)

Give Me Some Sugar

This is my CSSV gift for the lovely @hopeandbeans. I hope you have an amazing Valentine’s Day!

During our conversations over the weeks, you mentioned baking and fluff, so here is a light-hearted, baking-themed AU I wrote for you. It was a pleasure getting to know you and I truly hope you enjoy your gift. 

Your CS Secret Valentine,


Summary: Owning a cupcake and candy shop has always been Killian’s dream and managing a Hallmark Store was far from a fairytale for Emma. But when piercing blue-eyed Irish man meets green-eyed, sassy blonde, it just might be a match made in heaven. Every holiday and special occasion, they both buy product from each other for their family and significant others, until one year when they both end up single on Valentine’s Day and exchange more than just cards and sweets. 

Rating: F for friendship and fluffiness

It was Emma’s first week as store manager and she was pulling her hair out trying to learn the register and figure out where everything went while restocking and setting up displays. She had experience with managing convenience stores and gift shops back in Boston but Storybrooke was something quite different.

Nestled in Northern Maine, the citizens of the quiet town all seemed to migrate to this one shopping center - the Storybrooke Mall. Which Emma guessed was understandable considering that it took up almost half of Storybrooke - okay, that might be exaggerating a bit. But still, she couldn’t fathom where all of these people could be coming from. And she was pretty sure the water was contaminated with some kind of happy potion because they were all super exuberant and enthusiastic and just overall way too giddy like they were all hopped up on caffeine and sugar. And for some reason they all decided to do their shopping at the Hallmark Store. It wasn’t even a holiday.

Emma had finished up most of her final tasks of the day and was anchored behind the front counter after she had sent the last employee home. Being on her feet for a little over twelve hours and taking in everything that was thrown at her during her training that week was enough to make her want to go home, crawl into her comfortably warm bed and sleep for a month.

She was already regretting her decision to come here. To leave Boston with the hopes of starting fresh seemed a little ridiculous now. Nevertheless, she promised her best friend, Mary Margaret, that she would give the place a chance. She exhaled a heavy sigh. Why did she always make promises she knew she couldn’t keep?

The customers dwindled down to none and it was nearing nine o’clock. Emma was literally counting down the seconds when she looked over the counter displays and caught a glimpse of someone entering the store. Emma was cursing under her breath and praying that the last-minute customer would just make their purchases and leave, when a pair of blue eyes came into her line of sight. Emma was not the type of girl to get flustered or all googly-eyed over a man. She didn’t easily get swept off of her feet and she certainly didn’t swoon. Real life was not a freaking hallmark card for crying out loud.

anonymous asked:



  • who hogs the duvet
    Kageyama, but unwillingly; HInata moves a lot in his sleep which usually results in the duvet being tossed off and it either piles on top of Kageyama or the floor 
  • who texts/rings to check how their day is going
    Hinata! It’s canon he texts others often, even when some people (cough Kageyama cough) give him one word answers back; Kags eventually puts more effort into his responses though, and in the evenings when they’re both lying in bed ready to sleep, he’ll sometimes call Hinata so they can hear each other say “goodnight” and “sweet dreams” 
  • who’s the most creative when it comes to gifts
    Hinata~ Kags isn’t used to giving gifts so he always goes for what’s most obvious or practical, but Hinata is full of surprises!
  • who gets up first in the morning
    It varies, sometimes Hinata suddenly wakes up from an intense dream to see Kageyama is still snoring, and sometimes Kageyama wakes up to see HInata with his shirt rucked up and drooling a little on the pillow; in either case, they always take a few moments to appreciate how nice and warm it feels to wake up with someone they love beside them 
  • who suggests new things in bed
    Kageyama~ honestly his biggest kink is HInata’s pleasure, so he’s willing to do some extra research on the web and find new things that could make Hinata feel all sorts of fun sensations
  • who cries at movies
    Hinata; if they’re watching the movie in the privacy of their own home, Kags will gently wipe Hinata’s tears away, and if it’s in public, he’ll discretely slip his hand into HInata’s and squeeze it while whispering “stop crying you dummy they’re just actors” 
  • who gives unprompted massages
    Hinata! His hands are a bit small but they’re strong, and he likes the feeling of the knots in Kageyama’s shoulders and lower back loosening up and the satisfied “mmh” sound Kags makes as the tension slips away
  • who fusses over the other when they’re sick
    They both fuss over each other a lot! Usually one of them getting sick leads to the other getting sick because they end up spending so much time in close proximity with one another, since both of them worry about the illness worsening if they’re not by each other’s side to handle it
  • who gets jealous easiest
    Kageyamaa~ Hinata is quite popular, and seeing people constantly be touchy-feely with him just because he’s cute and small makes Kageyama’s blood simmer; sometimes if he’s feeling short tempered he’ll walk right up and take HInata away saying “I need to talk to you about volleyball practice today” as an excuse, or other times Kags will save it for when they’re alone together and be extra touchy-feely
  • who has the most embarrassing taste in music
    I’m not sure! I don’t feel like Kageyama really listens to much music, and Hinata is into pop and alternative rock
  • who collects something unusual
    It’s not too unusual, but Kageyama collects sweatshirts since he likes how cozy and simple they are to wear for jogging or just casual outings! He always buys one if he travels to someplace new; Hinata eventually catches on and starts buying matching sweatshirts, starting with the “Oniku” one~
  • who takes the longest to get ready
    They both take a short amount of time to get ready, but if they’re going someplace that requires a tux rather than plain t-shirts and jeans, Hinata takes a bit longer since he has a harder time with buttoning everything 
  • who is the most tidy and organised
    Hinata is a little more tidy than Kageyama, but he’ll do his share of the cleaning when needed! 
  • who gets most excited about the holidays
    Hinataa~ the holidays haven’t always been a happy time for Kags, so he has a hard time shaking the cloud of gloom that covers his heart as they approach, but Hinata’s cheer and energy make it possible for Kags to have a good time 
  • who is the big spoon/little spoon
    Hinata’s the little spoon, Kags is the big spoon~ 
  • who gets most competitive when playing games and/or sports
    BOI both of them are incredibly competitive so it’s an even match, but the number of wins and losses for each of them fluctuate 
  • who starts the most arguments
    They’re both pretty feisty with each other lol, although that lessens as they date for a longer amount of time; they won’t hesitate to call each other out on not doing something satisfactorily, but eventually they’ll come to an agreement about the steps they need to take so they’ll both be content
  • who suggests that they buy a pet
    Hinata! He loves animals a lot, but Kageyama worries about not having the time to properly take care of one so their first pet ends up being a fish that is low maintenance 
  • what couple traditions they have
    Wearing matching sweaters/sweatshirts during the holidays; watching volleyball competitions together (like the Olympics, or the Asian Men’s Volleyball Championship) and analyzing the plays; seeing the midnight premiers of Marvel films; taking a long, warm bath together after a competition; Sundays are katsu curry nights; going on a date for the other one’s birthday and buying them (almost) anything they want; going for a jog together in the mornings as the sun slowly rises over the hills and a jog together in the evenings as the stars come out
  • what tv shows they watch together
    Hunter x Hunter, Naruto, Game of Thrones, American Horror Story 
  • what other couple they hang out with
    TsukkiYama, TanaNoya, IwaOi, KiyoYachi, BokuAka 
  • how they spend time together as a couple
    Bantering; racing each other down the street; holding hands after making sure no one’s watching; sneaking kisses behind street lamps and down alleyways and in dark movie theaters; hugging each other gently before falling asleep; binge-watching anime when it’s a weekend and they have nothing better to do; constantly playing “would you rather”; loving each other so fiercely yet tenderly that they’ll never let each other go 
  • who made the first move
    Hinata~ there was a lot of blushing and stuttering involved, but one late afternoon as they were walking home from practice he told Kageyama “Ireallylikeyouwouldyoupleasegooutwithme”; HInata couldn’t see it because the sun was setting and the street lamps were late in turning on, but Kageyama’s face was redder than a tomato when he finally deciphered HInata’s confession 
  • who brings flowers home
    Kageyama~ he loves the way it makes HInata happy 
  • who is the best cook
    Kageyama! Hinata set off the fire alarm after trying to steam green beans, and so he was banned from trying to cook ever again 

Send me a ship!

GOM gift for their S/O ??

I did one last year, but I wanted to do this one again because fun stuff! 

Akashi: Akashi is a big fan of showering his significant other with love, so he goes to great lengths to plan displays and have flower arrangements until they assure him that it’s not really necessary for the holidays. Instead, he gets them a fancy red dress/suit in preparation for the Christmas date he will take his significant other on. It consists of a candlelit dinner at the top of a very well-decorated building and later on, he has tickets to a holiday musical for them to enjoy. 

Aomine: Momoi helps this poor child in getting a gift, and she chooses a really cute backpack for his significant other. Aomine doesn’t notice a lot of things, usually, but your backpack is just really old and is kind of tearing apart and it always catches his eye when you guys hang out. He also wants to get you a scarf, and Momoi picks out a cute one (with Aomine’s input of course). 

Kise: He gets his significant other matching ugly Christmas sweaters because Kise LOVES the holidays. Also he showers them with a ton of different candles because he was so indecisive, he couldn’t choose which one would go best with them, so he basically went to a candle shop and grabbed a bag full of scents that reminded him of his significant other. 

Kuroko: He prefers thoughtful gifts, instead of anything overly expensive. He knits his significant other some mittens, and gets them a cute phone case. Basically, he thinks of little “stocking stuffer” ideas and he makes them a personalized stocking to hang in front of the fireplace. He gets them candles (Kise offered him some extra), a beanie, mittens, and phone case. 

Murasakibara: He’s a food type of guy, but he also made an effort to get his significant other something substantial for the holidays. He makes them a tray full of holiday goodies, but he gets them a donut shaped pillow to remind them of him. With Himuro’s help he also finds them a cute necklace trinket. 

Midorima: Midorima is extremely thoughtful with his gifts, and he’s kind of like Kuroko in amassing a variety of different gifts for his significant other. The first one, obviously, has to be related to their horoscope sign: either a perpetual lucky object or a bracelet with their horoscope sign on it. Midorima also gets them one of his favorite books, and a pair of olive fluffy socks.
