get to know me meme; 18/20 animated movies: five centimeters per second (2007)
“Do you know the speed at which cherry blossoms fall? Five centimeters per second. At what speed must I live to be able to see you again?”
A long yawn escaped your lips in the middle of your explanation of a math problem. You covered your mouth as it gasped with the yawn and leaned back in the hard, wooden chair, desperately wishing it would somehow turn into your bed.
“Tired?” Jungkook asked, looking down at a piece of paper as he hurriedly wrote down what you assumed to be a note.
“A little.” You admitted with a sleepy drawl, too tired to hide the fact that you were tired and your eyes scanned over the page in the book you had been reading from, trying to find where you stopped.
When he was finished writing down his note, he glanced up at you expectantly, but once he noticed the sheer exhaustion painted plain as day on your face and weighing down your body, he sat up straight himself and cleared his throat. “We can stop, you know. If you’re tired.” His voice was a bit rushed and he sounded kind of guilty. “I-I’m sorry.” He chuckled, but it sounded forced and nervous.
It was odd to see Jeon Jungkook act nervous, when you were so used to cocky smirks and his overly confident attitude. But if there was one thing you noticed while tutoring him for the past two weeks, it was that tutoring him was a lot different than you had initially expected.
You had figured he was secretly some math genius and had only asked for your help in order to get into your pants. After all, it wasn’t exactly hard to tell that you were a virgin. And guy’s like Jeon Jungkook, loved girl’s like you.
Nothing even bad happened in san diego; I’m really greatful lana & jen took the time to give their usual spiel abt sq… but i’m still left feeling really… awkward and sad (for lack of a better description) looking back it’s just kind of disappointing that 5 years later they still won’t discuss the central relationship of the show as more than “enemies to friends.” And it’s like.. they don’t even have to venture into romantic territory! that’s what makes e&r relationship so great- it’s so nuanced you don’t have to. There’s so much to be said about them but spending more than 30 seconds discussing them or the swan mills family might “excite the gays” or “upset the others.” it’s like.. you can feel everyone in the room tense up when lana or jen are talking about them too much.
5 years ago they could have easily handled our fanbase very differently but they didn’t.
my ideal future for simon blackquill: practicing law for a few more years before going back to school to get a degree in clinical practice of psychology, then working as a therapist for prison inmates to ease them through the re-entry process because he knows not everyone can be as lucky with the transition back into society as he was

What makes Geier Reach Sanitarium colorless and not red?
Looting is something we allow colorless to do at lower power levels. Also, it affects everyone is which lowers its power level even more. Note that it matches Blue looting and not Red as Red discards first.
Here you have some warnings from the wandering days. Drawn with a combined example, and with the parts they might use regularly. And yes. Elves would absolutely be on their list of things to warn about.
Broken Reputation is more a note toward when they had to steal or break their word with a town, and are warning others that the inhabitants there won’t be amenable to dwarven sales.
Don’t get me wrong, I love short and to the point prompts, but if anyone has anything they’d like to send me that has more details, that would be wonderful! I feel like people want more romance and angst and I’m more than happy to write that, but my first thoughts when reading a prompt like this one are super duper fluffy.
Yep. Now, on with the story!
Riley sits on her bed surrounded by open textbooks, pages upon pages of notes, and even more brightly colored sticky notes. What was a slicked back ponytail and a well put together freshman is now a tired ratty mess of stress. Ever since she got home, Rileys been going between writing a paper for her father’s history class and studying for her biology midterm. The sun has already set, but she knows she can’t stop until she’s finished.
“Can’t talk now Lucas,” Riley says hastily without looking up at him. “I’m busy.”
“I can see that,” he says cautiously as he climbs in through the bay window.
“I wouldn’t do that,” Riley snaps and he stops in his tracks, but she still doesn’t look at him. “My dad’s gonna kill you if he knows you’re in my room.”
Lucas nods once. “He might, but-”
“But?!” Riley’s head snaps up and she instantly makes eye contact with him. “No buts!”
“But…” Lucas smirks. “We’re only going to be in your room for a few seconds.”
Riley’s eyes narrow. “What do you mean…we’re?”
Lucas smiles wider, walks over to Riley, scoops her up in his arms, and carries her out the bay window fair-maiden style.
“Lucas!” she squeals and tries, and fails, to fight him and make him let her go. “What are you doing?!”
He sets Riley down gently on the fire escape and turns around and quickly shuts her window before she can get past him to crawl back in. He sits in front of it with his back against the glass, completely blocking Riley from the window.
“We,” he says loudly, but calmly as he takes both her hands in his. “Are going to play a game because you are in desperate need of a well-deserved break.”
She heaves a long sigh. She can’t get back in the house now since the front door is locked and her key is in her room. Might as well… “What kind of game?”
Lucas smiles. “I’m glad you asked.” He reaches into his jacket and pulls out a large plastic bag filled with-
Lucas nods. “Yep. They’re for the game.”
“What game?” Riley presses. “This better not be an eating contest cause if it is I-”
“It’s not an eating contest,” Lucas laughs lightly. “Well, sort of.” Riley knits her eyebrows together and Lucas smiles, amused by her confusion. “Have you ever heard of The Chubby Bunny Challenge?”
Riley thinks it over for a minute, but then it clicks and her eyes widen. “Oh no…”
“Oh yes!” Lucas smiles so big, his eyes are squinting. He excitedly tears open the bag, spilling a few marshmallows in the process.
Riley giggles and she can feel herself beginning to relax.
“Whoops,” Lucas says quietly then pulls his lips in tight and his cheeks flush in embarrassment.
Riley’s smile grows and she reaches for the bag. She digs in and grabs a big handful then looks up at Lucas, challenging him with her eyes.
“A bit over confident now, are we?” he laughs lightly then reaches in and grabs an equally as enormous handful of marshmallows. “Challenge accepted.”
They stare each other down intensely for a minute before they simultaneously begin shoving marshmallows in their mouths.
They play the game just like anyone else would, but it’s not the game that matters or who has more marshmallows or how silly they both sound as it gets harder and harder to speak.
What matters to Lucas is seeing his girlfriend smile and laugh and cut loose. The farther they’ve gotten into high school, the more it’s worn her down. It matters to him that in this moment, even if it’s just for this one moment, she’s happy and she’s relaxed and she’s her normal bright sunshiny self.
What matters to Riley is that he’s here. That after days of pushing her friends away so that she can focus on her grades, Lucas is still here. And, from what she can judge from all the pictures he’s taken of her with his phone, Maya and Farkle and Zay and Smackle are all here too. Even if they aren’t physically, her boyfriend is keeping them together any way he can.
Lucas holds his hands up in surrender, since he’s unable to speak, and Riley does a victory dance as he scarfs down the marshmallows.
“I can’t believe you beat me,” he laughs lightly. “Are you part chipmunk or something?”
Riley still has all of her marshmallows in her mouth and since they’re already squished into her cheeks like a chipmunk storing it’s nuts, she just smiles as big and wide as she possibly can.
Lucas smiles too and snaps another photo.
After a few minutes of Lucas laughing at her and talking about chipmunks, Riley finishes eating and sighs.
She opens her mouth to speak, but stops and smiles
Lucas squints his eyes at her while he smiles. “What? Is there something on my face?”
Still smiling, Riley shakes her head.
“Then what is it?”
She waits a moment, wanting to take in the picture before her: his smile, the way his eyes light up, the slight angle to his eyebrows, the dimples in his cheeks, the curve of his lips.
She plants her palms on the fire escape and closes her eyes as she leans in and kisses him.
It’s a long and slow and soft kiss. Lucas’ eyes fluttered closed once he realized what was about to happen, but he feels Riley start to pull away, so he reaches up and takes her face in his hand and gently pulls her closer.
Even though the world spins on around them, and cars pass on the streets below, and somewhere in the distance people are shouting, and someone honks their horn…right here, with Riley and Lucas, the world is still and time stops.
But, only for a moment.
Then it starts up again.
Riley pulls away since her lips are now chapped and she’s a little lightheaded. Lucas’ hands leave her face and fall down to the fire escape to take her hands. They both look down and watch as they intertwine their fingers and Lucas rubs slow circles with his thumbs on Riley skin and she squeezes his pinkies gently, making them both laugh quietly.
They look back up at each other. Their bright eyes twinkle and their smiles make their hearts pound.
“Thank you,” Riley whispers.
Lucas smiles and pulls her close and wraps his arms around her. “Any time,” he says quietly and leaves a whisper of a kiss on her forehead.
Riley closes her eyes as she nestles into Lucas’ chest, and he takes a deep breath, and lets it out slow, and they both smile.
That definitely got a lot longer and fluffier than I originally intended… Hope you guys liked it! :)
thank you SO MUCH to everyone who participated :D this was really fun to do but also really difficult because you all have amazing blogs that deserve all the awards <3
sadly, I had to adjust the number of categories to the number of nominees, and so you will see that I deleted and merged some of the fandom categories (also because most of you are multifandom blogs)
on a brighter note, the more awards you’re a part of, the more prizes you will receive :))) (e.g. two wins = 2 gifsets & 10 promos)
soon I will message every one of you to present you with your award and talk about prizes! As for the promos, every one of you will be getting one next week. After that, if you ever want me to do another one, just message me anytime :)
Pairing : Nightsilver because honestly we need more nightsilver fics…
Notes : this is just a small drabble! i love the differences between the two and they seem like a very dynamic pair. also, religious mentions.
Peter and Kurt have very few things in common.
One thing that they do have in common is that they’re both X-men now; brave, strong, and formidable opponents to any person threatening Earth of Professor Xavier’s school for the gifted. So in other words, they’re both pretty kickass.
What Mercury signs would possibly make someone bad at math?
HAHAHA ARIES MERCURY BC THAT’S MY MERCURY AND I SUCK ASS AT MATH HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
but on a more serious note, I think it depends more on aspects between planets, but I’ll say this:
I can see fire mercuries (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) being bad at math due to either being careless or too fast in their work.
A Gemini Mercury could be bad at math because math requires concentration on a single problem and that could be pretty hard.
If they’re aware of other methods, a Libra Mercury could be bad in deciding which methods to use in math if multiple methods are possible.
I think of a conceptual stance, Pisces Mercury would struggle most in Math.
I honestly feel like a Cancer Mercury’s work depends on how their emotions at the time, so it depends.
Taurus Mercury is probably good at math because they’re always slow, steady, and meticulous. I can imagine them struggling on math tests though since it has pressure.
Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, and Aquarius Mercuries in my opinion are the best at math. Virgo and Scorpio are detailed oriented for different reasons, while I find Capricorn and Aquarius to be practical and logical.
