This whole thing, it was so stupid, and it made Annabeth feel stupid, and she wasn’t stupid, she was smart, gods damn it, so why couldn’t she do this? She should have been able to do this.
She only realised she was crying when a tear splashed on to the page of her textbook, blurring the black letters printed on the white page. That tear falling felt like conceding defeat, and soon enough she was crying in earnest, sobbing hard enough that the words became even less intelligible than they’d already been.
She put her head down on the book and let herself cry, feeling terribly stupid and sorry and frustrated. Her whole face felt hot, flushed with anger and annoyance - at this essay, at herself, at the fact that she was a daughter of the goddess of wisdom and she couldn’t seem to write a simple fucking essay.
When the door to her room opened she instinctively straightened, grabbing her dagger and spinning in her seat to face the intruder. When she saw who it was she immediately collapsed back onto the desk, face first, letting her dagger fall to the floor.
She heard Percy shut the door behind himself. There were a few soft footsteps, and then a gentle hand on her shaking shoulder and a quiet question. “Annabeth, hey, what’s up?”
We know TAB was all in Sherlock’s head and it started with John in the battlefield,
But then they ended that episode with Victorian Sherlock, opening the door to the possibility that the entire show is the original canon Sherlock’s fantasy of his and john’s life in a future world, and.. The entire show also started with John in the battlefield like that is so cute modern day sherlock’s victorian fantasy starts with john and so does victorian sherlock’s “future”(modern) day fantasy aw bb so gay i love him ^-^ @marcelock@inevitably-johnlocked@quietlyprim
Making his way back into the main cabin, Gabriel was greeted by yet another handsome face that he’d never seen before. The poise & confidence that he carried himself with were immediately noticeable. Thinking himself an old soul with a young heart, Gabe was pleased to see another mature gentleman had come to compete for him. Gabriel cleared his throat & the man turned on his heel, a charming smile gracing his lips. Hi, I don’t think I’ve introduced myself yet. I’m Gabriel.
You have not. I certainly would remember meeting someone as striking as you, he remarked, taking in the young man before him. My name is Ravi. It is very, very nice to meet you Gabriel.
Gabe could feel his cheeks start to burn & he hoped it wasn’t too obvious to the man. Do you want to have a seat? You can tell me a little bit about yourself & why you’re here.
Where to begin? Ravi mused, taking a seat on the stiff cushion. I stopped himself from letting out an audible groan. He had to remind himself this was only temporary. Once he’d won Gabriel’s heart, he could take him home & away from this dreadful place. I’m a business man, the CEO of a large, very prosperous corporation. I’ve done very well for myself through a lot of hard work. After focusing on that for so long, I thought maybe it was time to focus on myself. I would love nothing more than to settle into a quiet life with a gorgeous man.
And you don’t mind that being someone younger than you? Gabe inquired.
Age is but a number. Of course I don’t mind, as long as he is the type of person I could spend the rest of my days with, the older man shrugged. Leaning forward, he looked straight into the bachelor’s eyes. You are wise, passionate & dedicated. I know men my age who haven’t accomplished what you have.
I’ve read of some of your work. Your latest preservation project was a huge success. At your age, you seem to be making quite the name for yourself, Ravi explained excitedly, his smile wider than before. I must say that you intrigue me. I like that. I can’t wait to find out more.
So I just hit my next milestone not too long ago and I just wanted to thank my followers who have supported me all this time! There are now 2k of you I’m actually finding this really hard to believe. Like how?? What did y’all see in my trashy blog i cri :’) I have met so many new people past few months and have made so many new friends whom I dearly love. I never thought I would find so many nice people on here who would make my day everyday. Anyways!! I wanted to thank all these blogs who have made my tumblr experience so amazing. Lets always keep supporting Bangtan ^.^ I honestly have no idea what more to say since I’m not good at these things lol so lets get to it!
don’t think about Hope and Lightning going on their first date in the new world and being all shy about it since neither of them had a typical teenage dating experience
don’t think about him giving her pink roses, because “they were pretty and match [your] hair”
don’t think about that little moment of hesitation before their first kiss, where they just kind of hold their breaths and glance at each other’s lips before slowly leaning in
don’t think about their lazy Sunday dates when they order takeout and sit in front of their Netflix queue, making random comments about whatever they’re watching
don’t think about Lightning needing to look up at Hope when they’re standing up; seriously, when did he get so tall??
don’t think about the first time she spends the night at his place, and it’s a little strange because this is the first time she’s shared a bed with someone since she and Serah were kids, but Hope lets her toss and turn until she finally admits that she’s most comfortable snuggled up against him
don’t think about Hope being little spoon
don’t think about Hope working on some sort of project for his job and getting a little stressed about it, so Lightning takes his mind off it for awhile with a date night
don’t think about her staring at him when he’s asleep and wondering if he’s always had all those freckles
don’t think about them traveling around together, taking silly touristy pictures and a bunch of selfies
don’t think about the first time he tells her that he loves her - in a perfectly romantic moment under the stars
don’t think about the first time she says it - just blurts it out seemingly outta nowhere: “I can’t believe you spend more time on your hair than I do; you’re lucky I love you or this might be a deal breaker.”
don’t think about him giving her a key to his place
don’t think about him easily grabbing her hand when they’re out together, their fingers slotting together so naturally it’s a wonder they were ever apart at all
don’t think about his arm automatically sliding around her shoulders when they’re on the couch and her leaning against him without even thinking about it
don’t think about them dozing off together, with Lightning’s head on Hope’s chest, and nothing is more soothing than the steady thudding of his heart as he holds her close
don’t think about these two idiots in love forever and always with not even death parting them because their bond literally survived through different worlds and lives and nothing will keep them apart ever again
I think after all this time I have finally realized what it is about you that I am and was so drawn too. I spent five years with her and I had best friends, but I couldn’t talk to them about everything and anything in our relationship that I liked or disliked. Then you came along with that giggle and smile and opened me right up. I could tell you the good and the bad and you would actually listen to me. Hell after all this time and everything we went through you still listen to me about it. I have never been able to talk to anyone about the shit that I go through. You are the only outsider that knows everything. That was huge for me. And talking about it made me only realize how much I had fallen in love with you. You herd and learned about all my flaws and defects from stories about her and you still wanted to kiss me goodnight when it was time to go. You never pushed me away no matter how shitty the situation was for you. You were always open and there for me. And I abused that. I’m sorry. I know you tell me your fine and you very well may be..however, I don’t believe that. It’s a nice front to protect yourself bc when we talk you feel that spark light up just like it used too. Bc we were there for each other through some shit times and nothing can every change that. I will always love you till the day I die, but I need to let you go.
