It’s quiet on Arcturus Station at Christmas. Even though there are thousands of people living there, most like to stay in their private quarters to eat together.

It’s good though. Shepard has lots to do anyhow. There’s a fresh, vending machine bought, primo turkey-like meat in a roll that needs eating along with a book that needs reading. She’ll see everyone in a few days. 

Weird Lookin’ Dingo

just a little fanfiction inspired by this piece by @coconutmilkyway! it’s two a.m and i haven’t proof read this so if there are any glaring errors i apologize in advance. here it is on ao3!


            Roadhog had several things come to mind when Junkrat sauntered into their hideout saying he had a surprise for him. A two-headed dingo was not one of them. He watched as the animal trotted in, both heads held high and nostrils flaring as they sniffed the unfamiliar area.

           “Look at ‘er! Ain’t they a beaut hoggie?”

           “Didn’t know you liked dingo meat.” Roadhog huffed and rolled his eyes under his mask when Junkrat responded with a horrified gasp.

Things German people don’t say

Why is there raw meat on my bread roll? That’s disgusting.

Deutsche Bahn - everything’s just right with that.

Water, hop, malt, pink grapefruit - that’s all a good beer needs.

Elmex in the morning, Aronal in the evening.

I don’t have an opinion about Dschungelcamp.

Beer all kinda tastes the same anyway.

You can’t use that to open a bottle. I’m not even gonna try.

Be quiet, the Seitenbacher advertisement I love so much is on TV!

Absorbing refugees in Germany? Of course! How about right next door?

Oh! An accident! I’m just gonna keep going.

Veggie Day? I’m in!

Barbecues in summer are overrated.

The GEMA is doing everything right.

One kind of dark bread and one kind of light bread. That’s all anyone could ever need.

No, no, you take that parking space. I’ll go find a new one!

I have to go to the hardware store. There’s a 20% sale on pet food.

anonymous asked:

TsukkiKage -- smile

“I bet Kageyama can’t smile, ” the voice comes from next to him and Tsukishima turns to see Hinata talking to Yamaguchi.

“I think it’s just that his smile doesn’t look like a smile cause he frowns while doing it,” Yamaguchi replies with a quiet laugh.

“How much do you bet?” He interrupts their conversation, getting two pairs of wide eyes staring back at him.

He watches Hinata discuss something with Yamaguchi for a seconds before saying, “Two meat buns!”

Tsukishima rolls his eyes, having excepted at least some money but this was fine. The satisfaction of winning a bet was enough for him. He stands up, telling the two to ‘wait here’ while he goes over to Kageyama and grabs his jacket. “Tobio, I need to talk to you for a moment,” he says while dragging him out of the gym, right next to the door where no one can see them. If he did this with an audience, he had no doubt Kageyama would be too embarrassed to smile properly but out here…

“What did you want to talk about-” Kageyama starts but Tsukishima chooses that moment to kiss him, long and deep complete with hands cupping his face gently. He feels how stiff Kageyama is at first but once he introduces his tongue into the equation, he just melts against him, sighing softly and pulling Tsukishima closer. About a minute later, he reluctantly pulls away when he remembers that he has a bet to win.

“You looked really good during practice today and I wanted to kiss you,” Tsukishima explains, with a rare smile of his own. Kageyama had just been blushing a little but after hearing those words, a full, real smile spreads across his face, the kind only Tsukishima can pull out of him.

While he’s like that, Tsukishima quickly pulls Kageyama back into the gym and smirks as Hinata starts yelling in shock, “Gwaah I don’t believe it Kageyama’s smiling?!! How?! What did you do to him?!”

Tsukishima just grins as he walks by themselves and says smoothly, “I’m looking forward to those meat buns, Hinata.”

And then he hears another yell, “Did you make a bet about me?!! Hinata, dumbass!!!” He turns to see Kageyama chasing Hinata around, his face set back into its usual glare. Oh well, the smile was nice while it lasted.

next week’s meat spoiled
my gut rolls rib to rib

I was rewatching bits of 12.01 and it hit me: So, yes, okay, Sam’s sass and determination are absolutely awe-inspiring, but also he was walking? His right foot was horrifically burned and he’d recently had a bullet dug out of his left thigh, but he stood. He walked. He ran up the freaking stairs trying to escape even with both legs in that shape. My badass, charred, cinnamon roll son. How even. I have no words.

김밥 = Gimbab

This dish is known to be one of the most nutritious meals. Literally meaning “seaweed rice”, this is seen as the Korean version of Sushi. It consists of steamed white rice, with strips of vegetables, egg, and meat, rolled in sheets of dried laver seaweed and served in delicious bite-size slices.

“Pigs” in a Blanket 

This was one of my favorite meals as a kid!   Except I used to eat them with buttery crescent rolls, real hot dogs, and american cheese slices.  This is how I made them this time:

The crescent rolls were vegan (by chance), and I bought soy (vegan) hot dogs to put in them. I also bought actual cheese after checking that the farm had good cow treatment. :) They’re super easy to make, you just put half of a hot dog and some cheese (or none for full vegan) on the crescent roll and roll it up.  Bake it until they get nice and golden brown.  My favorite is dipping them in ketchup and mustard :)

And yet Kurt never lost faith in his ability to make music, even during the week before he died.
I never really heard him put that down. That was the one area that he wouldn’t touch like that. I got to sit and listen to this man serenade me. He told me the Meat Puppets’ second record was great. I couldn’t stand it. Then he played it to me–in his voice, his cadence, his timing. And I realized he was right.

The only time I asked him for a riff for one of my songs, he was in the closet. We had this huge closet, and I heard him in there working on “Heart-Shaped Box.” He did that in five minutes. Knock, knock, knock. “What?” “Do you need that riff?” “Fuck you!” Slam. [Laughs] He was trying to be so sneaky. I could hear that one from downstairs.

Climbing Class - Chris x Fem! Reader

“Have you seen the new girl yet?

Chris turns around to look at his best friend, while he shakes his head slowly. "No, but I’m sure you already flirted with her, right?”, he replies as a slight smile on Josh lips appears. Chris can already see the answer in his eyes. Josh puts his arm around his shoulder friendly. “Yes, but she wasn’t really interested.”
“Are you two talking about (Y/N)?”, Mike joins the conversation with Matt by his side. Josh just nods in agreement. “I saw her in the sports hall. This girl is hot as hell. Especially when she climbs up a rope”, Mike can’t hold back the smile. Matt pushes his elbows playfully into Mike’s ribs, “She isn’t a piece of meat”. His friend rolls his eyes sighing.
“Come on, Matt. You looked at her ass like me. Hell, like all the guys in the trainings hall”, Mike says mocking, while Matt starts to blush. He didn’t mean to look at your backside, but his “manliness” won this fight. Josh chuckles a brief moment about his reaction. The only one who doesn’t know what to say is Chris. “What are you thinking?”, Mike looks at the blond geek.
“He hasn’t seen (Y/N) yet, but I’m sure she’s going to blow his mind”, Josh answers for his best friend smiling like a little boy. Matching to his words someone comes out of the class right in front of them. It’s like a punch into Chris’ face, but in a good way. Mike and Josh exchange a glance. They know what’s going on.
The way you throw your hair over your shoulder makes his knees weak like the slight smile on your lips. Chris can’t take his eyes off of you, while you make your way towards him. “Hey, sexy lady!”, Mike greets you grinning and winks at you. Without a word you ignore his statement.
“Hey, I’m (Y/N)”, you introduce yourself to the unknown blond guy who’s still staring at you. Josh pushes his elbow into his ribs to snap him out of his thoughts. “What? Uh… Chris! Nice to meet you”, he starts to ramble with a red face. “I told you! Blows his mind”, Josh gives Mike a high-five, before they leave Chris and you alone. “So… That’s awkward now. I feel like an unicorn. Everyone is staring at me”, you exclaim sighing.
Chris doesn’t know why, but he wants to stroke your head softly to comfort you. “Don’t do it! You don’t even know her! … But she seems so sad”, he talks to himself in his head, but still doesn’t know what to do. “Hey, are you alright? Sorry for bothering you with my … thoughts”, you misunderstand why he remains quiet. Surprised he grabs your arm to stop you before you can walk away.
“Sorry, I was just thinking about something”, the slight smile on your lips comes back. “About what?”, you tilt your head a little bit. Panic fills Chris from his head to his toes, because he doesn’t want to scare you away. The feeling of butterflies in his stomach is just overwhelming. “Uh… Climbing”, he remembers that Josh talked about this a little bit earlier.
The smile on your lips widens immediately. “Really? I love to climb! We could go to the sports hall and climb together”, you exclaim happy that you found someone who has the same hobby. Really excited you grab his hand and start to drag him into the direction of the sports hall. That’s the moment where Chris realizes he f*cked up…

“I thought I’m the only one who loves to climb”, you say between your deep breaths, while you sit down on the floor. Chris only nods in agreement. His head is still searching for a good excuse to run away like a coward. At least he had a nice view from below, while you were climbing.
“Now it’s your turn, Chris”, you snap him out of his thoughts about your perfect body. He looks at the climbing wall as his brain just gives up. There is no chance he would get out of this situation without embarrassing himself in front of you. Chris turns around to look at you for the last time maybe. In the next few minutes you will run out of the sports hall laughing about him. He can feel it.
The faked smile on his lips fades away, when he faces the wall. “Chris? Do you really want to climb?”, you ask him worried. Your blond friend is acting weird like he hides something from you. Without an answer Chris tries to climb up the wall, but fails after a few seconds.
Of course you try to hide the big smile on your lips as he stands up from the ground rubbing his backside. “It’s alright. Laugh already”, Chris looks at his shoes embarrassed that he made a fool out of himself. Sighing you stand from the ground and make your way towards him. At least his back is facing you so you wouldn’t see his red face.
Softly you hug him from behind to comfort him. “Josh told me that you are a terrible climber. It was just cute how you’ve tried to impress me”, you tell him the truth. Chris turns his head a little bit to look at you. “I’m going to kill him… I made a fool out of myself”, he replies still mad at himself.
“Maybe a little bit, but it makes you so cute. To be honest climbing isn’t my favorite hobby. I love video games more than anything”, you admit smiling, while Chris spins around to stare at you. “What? Oh my god! You are sent from heaven!”, he couldn’t believe his god damn luck. His statement makes you blush.
Suddenly a bit shy you push him playfully, “That’s a bit too dramatic, right?” Chris can’t take his eyes off of you, while he grins like a boy. “No, not really. Uh…”, his brain and his heart are arguing right now what he should do. Without a further word Chris leans forward and presses his lips against yours.
“Woah, Cochise!”, a familiar voice ruins the romantic moment. The two of you break apart with red faces. Mike wiggles his eyebrows and whistles matching to the situation. “I see you later”, you wink at Chris as you grab your things and leave the boys alone. “You two owe me five bucks”, Josh says to Mike and Matt. The smile on his lips almost reaches from one ear to the another one. Chris just stands there smiling dreamily and you are the only thought in his head right now.

Life Is Full Of Surprises…
