Zero's House - Monday, 1:40pm

“She sent you all of this? Wow….I’m really surprised.”

“Can’t say I’m not, considering the last time I saw her it was because I showed up to her house drunk off my ass and slurring about how I never got over her.”

“Smooth, big brother. It’s quite random, I must admit. For as long as I’ve known, Vampires and Werewolves don’t mate. In fact, our kind and theirs supposedly hate each other. It makes me wonders if this is her way of saying how she feels about you without actually SAYING it.”

Zero shared his sister’s sentiments. Of course Xana had her doubts because of the negative light she saw Vampires in, but Zero couldn’t blame her. Not now when his own best friend wanted to end his life.

The biggest thing here was something he couldn’t seem to process fully. Sado still cared for him.

After all these years, after what he’d done, she still cared and that meant enough. It also meant since he was the king of gifts, that he was due to deliver some unmarked bags of his own. He knew what Sado liked, knew what she didn’t like. He also knew there was a tiny fur creature that she hadn’t seen since they broke up years ago and she’d probably be more than thrilled to see it again.

every time i think about eos i feel like i’ve been punched in the damn chest like holy shit just the fact that Aelin knew her and Rowan were mates and the fact she was so selfless and sacrificed her happiness and the life she could have built with her family hurts me so much

You don’t know anyone at the party, so you don’t want to go. You don’t like cottage cheese, so you haven’t eaten it in years. This is your choice, of course, but don’t kid yourself: it’s also the flinch. Your personality is not set in stone. You may think a morning coffee is the most enjoyable thing in the world, but it’s really just a habit. Thirty days without it, and you would be fine. You think you have a soul mate, but in fact you could have had any number of spouses. You would have evolved differently, but been just as happy.

You can change what you want about yourself at any time. You see yourself as someone who can’t write or play an instrument, who gives in to temptation or makes bad decisions, but that’s really not you. It’s not ingrained. It’s not your personality. Your personality is something else, something deeper than just preferences, and these details on the surface, you can change anytime you like.

If it is useful to do so, you must abandon your identity and start again. Sometimes, it’s the only way.

Set fire to your old self. It’s not needed here. It’s too busy shopping, gossiping about others, and watching days go by and asking why you haven’t gotten as far as you’d like. This old self will die and be forgotten by all but family, and replaced by someone who makes a difference.

Your new self is not like that. Your new self is the Great Chicago Fire—overwhelming, overpowering, and destroying everything that isn’t necessary.

Note: this is simply done for squid/octopus humor and education.  Don’t take it too seriously; we’re all here to have a good time.

Oh Cod… here’s another Mating Fact comic! But thankfully, it’s not Blue and Orange getting wrecked by Whinter.  Instead… Arnick and Tetrox (and technically Octa) getting wrecked by Ash.

That’s right; female octopuses lay up to 200,000 eggs; FIFTY TIMES more than what a flying squid would lay.  Hey, at least the previous mating facts were debunked in the third comic strip hahaha… right? Also, I don’t think Ash wants that many children if he’s saying it in front of Octa haha.

Tetrox and Arnick belongs to @cafe-cardamari / @tamarinfrog

No bark, no bite [Wolf!AU]

A good thing about being a wolf is that you don’t need to actually talk to someone to find your mate. In fact you only need to use your nose and find that scent that somehow will tell you ‘it’s her’. After that, things go even easier. 

It might sound a little bit lame, specially coming from a werewolf. We are supposed to be fierce, charming, experts… but I’m different. I’m kinda the loner of the pack, the unwanted, the omega. I didn’t choose to be it, I didn’t ask for it but I also don’t mind. It’s not like I’m not strong, in fact I’m the strongest, some alpha material. But I don’t care for that, I just want to be left alone, to be on my own. 
Which is impossible.
We are a different pack, an unique one.
My brothers are very close, we all share a special bond.
So no matter how ‘omega’ I am, they will always be there for me and I’ll be there for them. But that’s another story to tell.

Back to the soulmates thing, we are supposed to find ours in our or close packs, sometimes it can be in a distant pack or even an enemy pack. But finding a human mate… It has happened once or twice, unusual cases. Just like me.


“Hey! Say something! I need an explanation! Aren’t you supposed to tell me that what I saw wasn’t real? That I was only imagining things? Are you going to bite me?” She kept talking but I wasn’t really listening. Not that I didn’t want to but I just couldn’t. Her eyes wouldn’t let me. I was completely lost in them, they were even more beautiful than the moon.
“Hey! Are you planning on eating me alive?!” 
Was she serious? Like I would eat my soulmate. Soulmate. Soulmate.

I probably already knew what she was, from the first moment I perceived her scent. But it was not until that moment when I realized what it meant. Happiness. Love. Forever. A few words crossed my mind as I turned myself into a human, forgetting she was staring directly at me, scared of the wolf that was in front of her. She probably thought I was planning to attack, when the only thing I was doing was trying to tattoo her image in my mind.
“I’m sorry… but ho-how am I going to… deny it”
“Just like that?! What are you going to do if I tell someone hm?!” I had to admit she looked so cute, with her hands on her waist with that cocky attitude. 
“You won’t…” It was hard for me, talking to a girl. Like I said, if I had a normal mate I would only need to smell her.. Lick her ears, as weird as it sounds, and some other animal stuff. But having a human as a mate… that made things different, I had to talk. I had to win her hear. And she had seen me. It was going to complicate things.

“How do you know I won’t tell someone? How can you be so sure that hunters won’t be here by the morning” She was actually smiling, her hand was getting closer to me… to my fur-now coat.
“Because you are curious. And the only way I tell you about it all… is for you to remain silent”
“You are a smart one!”
She stated, running her hands over my coat. I just watched her. “I like you”
“Well I’m a wolf… what did you expect”
We made eye contact, we started laughing.
Say… is it possible for a werewolf and a human to be friends?” She smiled and looked to the moon. I continued looking at her and kissed her cheek before my mind told me not to.
Only if it’s meant to be”

A/N: Hey! Sorry for not posting earlier! I’ve been playing the sims all week… I’m addicted Xd Anyways I hope y’all like this! Xoxo, Ara~

Yet another mating fact starring Rose! And what better way than to ruin poor shy Octa’s mind? XP

Feliz día del Mate!

Today we celebrate the most traditional of Argentina’s beverages: the Mate (pronounced mah-teh)! 

Fun fact: the mate was declared Argentina’s national infusion in 2010!

This infusion is made with dried leaves of yerba mate and hot water (just before the boling point). It’s very rich in caffeine, so it’s the go-to drink for students pulling all nighters while cramming for finals.

One of the particular stuff about it is that we don’t drink it like any other tea, we have special “tools” for it: the bombilla -a metal straw- and the mate -a sort of cup that is usually made out of the very funnily named porongo (calabash), but there are many different variants.

More fun facts:

-It’s usually drunk in groups. One person will pour the water and take care of it for the entire round. If you say “thank you” after receiving it that means you don’t want more, so be careful! Here, politeness doesn’t pay lol.

-You can also drink it cold, using juice instead of water. Then it’s called a Tereré.

-Mate is drunk not only in South America but also in Syria and Lebanon! The Druze immigrants adopted it here, and brough it back with them, making it a tradition of their own :D

The Other Half of Me (A Seth Clearwater Imagine)

Request: could you write a Seth imagine? only if you have time, but thank you very much!

A/N: You’re very welcome! All requests are welcome and accepted, and I can definitely make time for all of them.

SETH’S POV

I sat on the piles of rocks that line First Beach as I watched Jake playing with Nessie, who now looked to be around 8 years old. She squealed and giggled as Jake tossed her onto his shoulders, a huge grin breaking out on his face.

I sighed and looked down at the sand that filled the cracks between the rocks, picking at a small plant that was trying to grow. It wasn’t fair. Everyone around me had been given the opportunity to be happy, except for me. Almost everyone in the pack had imprinted, which means they found their soul mate, aside from Leah, Embry, and myself. But what differed between me and my other two pack mates was the fact that Leah and Embry were both in promising relationships. Not me.

I was destined to be forever alone.

While I was lost in thought, Nessie had made her way over to me, and I felt her small hand touch my face. “Sethy, look what Jake did,” She said, before showing me with a pouted lip. She showed me Jake lightly tossing her into the cold water of the ocean, and his laughing face. She also showed herself getting out of the water and walking over to me, pouting.

I chuckled at what she showed me, and before I could say anything to her, Jake came up behind me and sat down. “I’m sorry, Ness,” He said, a frown on his face. “Please forgive me.”

Nessie tried to act angry, but she failed, a grin slowly spreading out across her face. “Okay, Jakey. I forgive you.” Jake picked her up and gave her a hug, swinging her into the air.  ‘Thank you for forgiving me,” He told Nessie, and I smiled at how adorable they were. While I was jealous of him, I was happy for him, because it was nice finally seeing him happy.

Jake walked off back to the water with Nessie, and left me alone with my thoughts, yet again. Before I could get even deeper into my self pity, I heard a small, beautiful voice behind me. “Hi,” The voice said, and it was the best sound I had ever heard. Turning around, I went to face the source of the voice, and was instantly frozen in my spot. She was the most beautiful girl I had ever seen in the world, but that wasn’t it.

It was her. Time stopped and the earth stopped spinning as soon as my eyes met hers. All the strings that had attached me to the earth were snapped and the only thing that was keeping me on the ground was her. My heart was pounding in my chest, and I forgot where I was, my name, how to talk. I forgot everything. All there was in my mind was her.

While I was staring at her, Jake and Nessie stepped in to save me, before she thought I was insane. “Hello,” Jake said, approaching her. “I’m Jacob Black, and this amazing girl in my arms is renesmee, who we call Nessie, and over there,” He gestured towards me, “Is Seth Clearwater.” I then was snapped back into reality, as I scurried over to where they were.

“Hi,” I greeted breathlessly, sticking out my hand for her to shake. She took my hand quickly, a large smile on her face. “I’m (Y/N)” She said in her beautiful voice. I didn’t let go of her hand and she did not let go of mine. “As Jake already told you, I’m Seth Clearwater.” She nodded her head and at that point I noticed that Jake and Nessie were walking away, giving us some privacy.

“Would you like to walk down the beach?” I asked, still holding her hand. “Sure,” She said, walking along beside me, our hands still connected. “Tell me a bit about yourself,” I said, trying to figure out more and more about his mystery girl. “We just moved into Forks,” She said, “And my mom told me to come down to the beach to try to make friends. I’m not really social but I came down here to make her happy. I didn’t see anyone for a while until I stumbled across you, Jake, and Nessie. My mom will be happy to hear that the guy I met and befriended is super hot.” She immediately covered her mouth, her eyes wide. “Why did I just say that?” She whispered to herself, a dark blush sweeping across her cheeks.

To try to make her feel better, I leaned closer to her and whispered, “Well I was going to say that my mom would be happy because I met the most beautiful girl today on the beach.” She froze and a huge smile spread across her face. “You mean that?” She asked, and I nodded. She gave me a huge hug, and kissed my cheek.

“No one has ever told me that before,” She said, and I stood there, shocked.

“Well, (Y/N), I guess I’m going to have to change that,” I said to her, as we continued to walk down the beach, because my imprint needed to know that she was beautiful, and I was going to make sure that happened.

“Why am I already so drawn to you?” She asked softly, and I opened my mouth to spill everything. Right before I said anything, I paused, and instead decided to shrug my shoulders, a grin on my face. She seemed nervous all of a sudden and her heartbeat picked up quickly.

“Would it be weird if I asked you to kiss me right now, even though we just met?” She asked me quietly, coming to a stop behind a tall rock, so Jake and Nessie couldn’t see. Instead of answering, I leaned in and captured her lips with mine. We got a little carried away. After a few minutes, we stopped kissing and she pulled away, pulling a small phone out of her purse. “I have to go. My mom wants me to come home. But I want to see you again, a lot. So can I have your number?”

“You’ll definitely be seeing me again,” I said, and put my number in her phone. As she walked away, I watched her with a huge smile on my face.

This was it. She was the one.

I was in love. I was in more than love.

Finally, I was happy.

(Sorry if this sucks)

Meteor showers

WARNING:

Pairing: Keith x reader

request: 29 with Keith?

Prompt: 29 - “You know… if we were a couple, stargazing like this would be a neat first date.”

(Notes: *Pretends that I don’t have a lot to do* Sorry this took way too long ;-;)


(Y/N) smiled as she packed her backpack. There was a huge picnic happening outside the castle, due to a meteor shower that was supposed to happen. The people on the planet said that it was the most beautiful sight all year round, and they just had to stay and watch. Keith had agreed to be her blanket mate, due to the fact that everyone was pairing up (they only had small blankets, otherwise they would all have sat together).

She jumped as her door slid open, a familiar paladin walking in. “You ready?” Keith asked. She smiled, slinging the backpack over her shoulder. “Yup. You?” She responded. He nodded, a ghost of a smile on his face. Keith and (Y/N) had been best friends for a long time. They stayed together through thick and thin, despite their slightly clashing personalities. He was serious and she was silly. Yet, it worked.

(Y/N) smiled excitedly as she babbled on about who knows what, all while they were walking outside. The night sky on this planet was wonderful, and she couldn’t help but chatter about them as they walked. “Don’t you think it’ll be great? I mean the night sky is already beautiful! What do you think?” She asked, looking at him. His face turned a slight shade of pink as he realized he had been staring. “Uh- yeah- it’s gonna be nice.” He stuttered.

She smiled, nodding as they found their way to a small hill and set everything up. It wasn’t a big thing really, just a blanket and drinks- neither of them were really hungry, they decided. As they waited in comfortable silence, (Y/N) noticed a few bruises on his hands. Interrupting what he was saying, she lightly took his damaged hand in her smaller on, running her thumb over it lightly while his face became warm.

“Your knuckles are all bruised…” She looked up, smiling slightly. “You’ve been training extra hard, huh?” She said. He cleared his throat nervously and nodded. He opened his mouth to say something, before the meteor shower started and talking rang out. Their eyes made their way to the sky, and what a sight it was. All the way on this side of the galaxy, there were not only meteors, but a plethora of space dust soaring past in the sky. It made a normal meteor shower look colorless, with blue and purple streaks of color slashing through the sky.

(Y/N)’s eyes widened, her babbling suddenly coming to a stop as the beauty of the sky filled her mind. She heard her friend laugh beside her, and she turned to him with a raised eyebrow. “What is it?” She asked. He smiled, his face red in the darkness. “You know… if we were a couple, stargazing like this would be a neat first date.” He said. She blushed, noting how he didn’t usually say things like ‘neat’. She smiled shyly, looking down.

“Yeah… you’re right. It would be an awesome first date.” She agreed quietly. They looked at each other for a moment, before she looked down again. Taking a silent deep breath, he took her chin in his hand and lifted her head up, connecting his eyes to hers before kissing her softly. They pulled apart, both blushing and avoiding eye contact, but smiling. After a moment their gazes found the sky again, only now his hands reached for hers, and her fingers weaved themselves through his.

Danger Days is amazing I second your opinion

good lord thank you! it’s such an interesting concept just in general and I really love the whole execution of the story, in my opinion mcr did exactly what they needed to do, they reinvented themselves with every album and on danger days they took that to new heights, keeping it interesting but still remaining loyal to the themes they had been writing songs about since the very beginning. and to anyone who says that danger days is just happy and cheery and pop; I beg to fucking disagree mates, in fact I think that in a weird way some songs on dd are even more heartbreaking than some on bp. kids from yesterday, for example. that’s some melancholic shit right there. none of their angst or what they had to say went away, they just found a new perspective and kept it real and oh my god I love danger days so much can you tell
