Using the power of fiction - Similarities between Kaneki and Saiko
Remember how folks have been seeing similarities between Kaneki and the original Q squad? Some go trough similar events or share character traits with him. With these thoughts in mind, this new chapter revealed something very interesting about Saiko. She has incredible imagination and skill to manipulate the shape of her kagune. She reads a ton of manga, watches anime and plays games, which inspire her to try and copy some of the interesting things she sees there.
During the fight with Urie she was reminded of Urie’s weightlifting so she created macho hands to counter him. Saiko copies stuff she reads and sees in fiction and in real life.
Well who, another nerd this reminds you? Our beloved bookworm Kaneki Ken. He read books to master and copy all kinds of skills, either them being martial arts related, or stuff like being able to turn into Sasako. Kaneki also copied peoples moves, like Shuu´s coiled spring kagune and sword, and as Sasaki his fighting style started to resemble a lot like Arima’s.
I think this skill for Saiko is very, very fitting and I like it a ton. It’s very like her to take something terrible like a kagune and turn it into a super cool and fun anime weapon. I think with her stances she also mimicks some typical shounen battle stances.
First post in a while, but I wasn’t in a great mental state since September. But I’m back and have 3 imagines queued up and I’m working on a series. Steve Rogers fluff imagine up on Sunday! Requests are open!

*’s are time jumps
Italics are dreams
Tony thought Steve was
joking. That when he called while on the mission that it was some sick joke you
were playing on him. He didn’t believe Steve when he said you were dead.
Mission gone wrong.
He didn’t believe it
until he saw you laying on the table. He didn’t see the bright (Y/E/C) eyes he
had come to love, or your delicate, warm hands. He only saw a white sheet over
your pale, bruised body, your clouded eyes looking straight up at the ceiling,
all the life drained from the figure in front of him. The last bits of hope
left his soul when he reached for your hand, only to find a cold, rigid limb.
He broke down then,
collapsing in on himself as he realized you were gone. There was no bringing
you back no matter what he would try. It was a horrible scene for everybody to
watch. Tony sank to his knees, shaking and trying to move, only to coil into
himself as he struggled to stop the tears from running down his face and breath
steadily like you used to help him with. He could only focus on your hands,
your cold, lifeless hands. Every fibre in his body hurt, and he knew there was
nothing anyone could do to make it go away.
Bruce and Steve were the
ones who went to help him. They lifted him off the floor, and as he tried
reaching for you again, held him back, as he ran off, stopping halfway to the
lab, trying to catch his breath and sinking to the floor again.
Everyone knew this was
Tony’s undoing, they knew this wasn’t going to get better. He was broken
without you, a man without purpose, and it was with a heavy heart that they
knew as they watched him struggle to the bedroom you used to share, that they
had lost their friend.
Tony really did try in
the beginning. He would try to eat regularly, sleep the best he could, and
wouldn’t even look at the large wall of liquors in front of him. He wanted to
do better in your memory, he wanted to make you proud, wanted to be the man you
made him. But he couldn’t. Not when he would accidentally make two cups of
coffee in the morning, putting cream in he one next to his before realizing no
one was there to drink it. Not when he would reach for a hand in the middle of
the bed, only to find a cold, empty space where you used to lay. Not when the
only thing that kept you out of his mind was bourbon and whiskey.
He never left the
bedroom. Never went to the lab. Only left to do 2 missions, both of which he
spent mindlessly shooting HYDRA agents in a rage, realizing they were the ones
who killed you. Then returning to his isolated spot in the quinjet before
returning to the bedroom when it landed. They had all tried to reason with
him- not even Rhodey or Bruce could get
him out- the only company he had was alcohol, FRIDAY, and his own.
It had been three months
since he saw you on that table, and it went on with no interruptions to his new
schedule. He woke up unsure of where he was after a short hour and a half of
sleep, ate a few pieces of bread that Wanda had dropped off every morning,
downed a bottle of water, and started drinking again. Everything between 9 am
that morning and his present time, was a blur. He only knew that it was now 2
am, and that your side of the bed was still- as it had been for the past three
months- too cold.
He knew he would be
riddled with nightmares, happy memories of you the two of you before you ended
up dead again, and he would wake up, in the midst of a panic attack, unable to
breath until he almost passed out and to repeat the process until he was
physically too exhausted to even move. But he fell asleep anyway, almost
begging for the numb pain in his chest to stop.
You stood in front of Tony in a pair of black
sweatpants and an extremely large Black Sabbath shirt he knew you had stolen
from him. He didn’t mind it though. You were smiling, your white teeth shining
as you laughed, your eyes crinkling at the sides as you bent your head down to
look at the floor, something you always did when you laughed too hard.
The words left your mouth in a euphonic voice as Tony
“I love you, Tony.”
Tony reached out to you, cupping your soft cheek in
his hand as he watched you raise your head again, your eyes bright with
happiness and content. He felt the same feeling fill the emptiness in his
chest, and mirrored your smile as he watched you reach your hand out to hold
his free one. Everything was right, nothing was out of place. There were no bad
guys destroying the world, no fights between the two of you, no one to disrupt
the perfect moment. It was only you and Tony, enjoying each others presence.
Your smile faltered only slightly as he cupped your
cheek, as you shivered gently and looked up at him. The words that left your
mouth next were the ones he had dreaded in the past few months, the ones that
always pulled him out of his perfect fantasy.
“I’m cold, Tony.”
It was when you looked up further, staring him
directly in the eye when everything started falling apart.
Your eyes clouded over ever so slightly, the happiness
being replaced by worry and fear as Tony stared at you falling apart in his
arms. Your skin started to flush, leaving you with a blue and grey tone that
made Tony uneasy, he knew what was happening, and he knew there was nothing he
could do to save you.
“Tony, I’m so cold.”
Your temperature dropped suddenly, and that’s when the
tears started spilling from your eyes, making Tony try and push you away, not
wanting to see the hurt and pain that you were experiencing, feeling his own eyes
“Stop.” He said simply.
“Tony, it hurts! I’m so cold!” You yelled, dropping
the floor in a heap, screaming out his name, complaining about the cold, yelling
for him to come back.
He woke up screaming,
with tears rolling down his face and his breathing erratic. He couldn’t see
properly, the tears obstructing his vision making the blurriness that always
accompanied his panic attacks even worse. He was used to it by now, but that
didn’t mean it hurt any less.
As he cried and screamed,
he thought he was falling back to sleep when he heard the voice.
Your voice. The voice he
loved so much, it hurt. He wrapped his fingers through his hair as he rocked
himself back and forth on the bed, crying and trying to control his breathing.
“It’s not real…” He got
out, knowing that you were gone there was no way he was hearing your voice. You
But you were. Standing by
the door of his room, you were watching as the man you loved was being torn
apart by the memory of you.
Not being able to stand
it any longer, you walked forward, finding your way in front of him, so that
you were next to his side of the bed, about to touch his shoulder when you
pulled your hand back and decided you needed more time to get to him before you
scared and hurt him even more. Fighting back tears that you didn’t even think
you had left in you, you opened your mouth and spoke again.
“Tony… Tony calm down,
you’re okay. You’re safe.” You said, slowly sinking down to the carpet,
watching as it only got worse.
It was killing him. He
really thought you were dead. It was killing you too. Taking a step back, you
went to your side of the bed, and gently placed your right hand on his left one,
which was shaking uncontrollably as he tried to take in enough oxygen to calm
himself down again.
“You’re okay… You’re
safe.” You said, gently stroking the top of his hand with your thumb, feeling
him calm down slightly.
“Tony, I need you to look
at me.” He wouldn’t. Probably couldn’t, but you weren’t giving up.
You moved closer to him,
until you were sitting right beside him as he looked up, vision clearing
slightly, as he comprehended what was going on at that moment.
You were beside him. The
warmth of your hand on his, and the sound of your voice was real.
He turned to look at you
and took in your state. You weren’t deadly pale, you looked slightly sick, with
red eyes and cheeks, eyes puffy as if you had been crying. You weren’t looking
as lively as you used to, your shoulders slumped slightly, and your hair a bit
of a mess. But you were there. Your eyes were still open, and your hand was on
You were warm.
“How- what,” he tried to
speak, but having still not fully recovered from his last attack, you shushed
him and moved forward so you were embracing each other, arm tightly wrapped
around his shoulders.
“I promise, I’ll explain
later. But right now, I just want to be with you.” You said, and he nodded into
your shoulder, burying his face into the crook of your shoulder as you sat
And that’s what you did,
you lay there not saying a word as you held each other. By the time either of
you were ready to speak, the sun was starting to rise, and Tony had his head on
your chest as you ran your fingers through his hair with one hand, and held
onto his hand with your own.
You took a breath before
speaking, knowing you owed him an explanation.
“During the Reshkov
mission, Nat and I found some files that detailed a capture and torture mission
that would end with me being killed. I brought them to Fury right after the
mission and he started working a plan that would make it seem like I was killed
on a mission so that I wasn’t a target or worry anymore, and it would give me
time to shut the entire operation down on my own.” You started.
“I was only told the
details the day we were going to fake it. Fury told me that I couldn’t tell
anyone, not even you what was about to happen. He told me that there was an
undercover in there that would inject me and make it look like I died, but I
couldn’t tell you, because there was surveillance everywhere, and they had eyes
in the tower as well.”
“You still couldn’t tell
me somewhere else?” He said, voice breaking in slight anger and severe hurt.
“I tried to, I wanted to
tell you what was going on, but they did it before I could.” You started to
choke up, remembering all the video footage you had seen of Tony since the
“I didn’t see any of the
footage until 2 days after, when I woke up. They showed me everything. Tony, I
wanted to come home so bad, I saw how it was killing you and it killed me. Fury
had a hard time keeping me in containment. They said as soon as I wiped out all
of Reshkov, I could come home. So, I did, and the minute I was done, I told
Fury to send me home. I’m so sorry. I never want to be the cause of your pain
You didn’t care that you
were crying at that point. You didn’t care that as he pulled you down to eye
level, he could see how much of a mess you were.
He slowly leaned in and
kissed you gently, which you returned happily as you took the moment to relish
in the time you were back together. Every emotion you had felt was poured into
that kiss, until he pulled away and held you close to him, both of you slowly
drifting off as you both realized that everything was going to be okay now.
You were half asleep when
Tony spoke up again, quietly as he didn’t want to startle you.
“(Y/N)?” He asked. You
made a sound of acknowledgement, and he held in a breath as he asked the
“Are you cold?”
You took a moment to
respond, shaking your head against his chest as you started drifting off.
Author Note: writing this because my awesome new tumblr friend put it in my mind💙💜 also this is going to start with Jerome and the reader meeting at the circus and this is the start to an emotional joy ride of a series 😉😂 also the reader is related to Jim Gordon but you’ll see how in this part😉😉😉 and I know I have requests to post but I got excited and just had to go ahead and post this
Word count: it’s very long
Requested: sorta kinda is a request/collaboration
Warnings: None for this part
“Come on Daddy!!!”
You held his hand as you ran through the circus. Even though you were only 6 you were fast. And he had a semi hard time keeping up.
Your father stopped and smiled when he saw a friend from work. He walked over to talk to him. His grip on your hand loosened to the point where he let go. You stood beside him just staring off into space when you got bored you decided to wander off.
You kept wandering around and looking at all the side shows. You were fascinated by all the acts and costumes. But something caught your eye.
There was a huge snake in a cage and you felt drawn to it. You leaned forward and looked at the beautiful snake.
“Hey be careful!”
You stepped back quickly and looked over to see a red headed boy with crystal blue eyes that looked around your age.
“It’s fine, she just gets irritated after a long day of preforming.”
You turned back to look at the snake and the boy walked up and stood beside you.
“What’s her name?”
You nodded and looked back at her.
"I’m Jerome by the way.”
You smiled brightly and he smiled brightly back. The two of you continued to talk and walk around the circus. Holding hands in an innocent way. He showed you around and showed you some of the best food stands and side shows. Your father ran to you and hugged you tightly.
“DON’T EVER RUN OFF LIKE THAT AGAIN!!! I WAS SO WORRIED ABOUT YOU Y/N!!!”
You hugged him back tightly and yawned. He sighed.
“I guess it’s time to go home… Say goodbye to your friend.”
You turned around and hugged Jerome tightly. He hugged you back tightly.
Little did you know that at this moment your destiny would be tied to Jerome’s and that he would change your life forever.
12 years later:
It was late in November on a Friday night. You were heading to Haly’s circus because you hadn’t been in a long time. You kept wanting to return but you couldn’t between work, family, friends, and school. But you finally had a free weekend and decided to go.
You gave your money to the ticket booth person and got your ticket. You entered the circus and walked around looking at all the attractions. You saw people entering a huge tent but you wanted to see all the side shows.
You stopped every now and then to watch but nothing really caught your eye. Well except the huge snake in the cage you saw out of the corner of your eye. Ever since you were 5 years old you had loved them. You walked up to the cage and bent over to look into it. The snake stuck it’s tongue out and started to move in its little coiled position.
“Hey be careful.”
You looked up to see a red headed boy who looked to be around the age of 18.
“She gets aggravated after a day of preforming.”
You knew you had heard this from somewhere before but you couldn’t recall from where. The boy walked towards you and smiled while looking down.
“My name is Jerome.”
“OHMYGOSHJEROME?!?! I haven’t seen you in forever!!!”
You tackle hugged him to the ground and he looked at you confused.
“Do I know you?”
“It’s me! Y/N!”
He quickly hugged you back smiling.
“God you’ve changed so much!”
“I could say the same for you.”
You looked down at him and smiled before standing up and brushing yourself off. He did the same. He hugged you again.
“I didn’t think you would ever come back.”
“I guess I just got caught up in school and family and work and friends…”
You laughed and he laughed too. You had never heard his laugh before and honestly you were in love with it. He slowly took your hand in his as he started to lead you away to the ruckus of the circus grounds. The two of you talked about random things and the subject constantly seemed to change. The two of you wove your way through the crowd.
Although there were hundreds of people there all you could focus on was the two of you. To you no one else was there. He led you away from the noise and the crowd and down towards the huge river nearby. He picked up a stone and threw it across. You sat down on the cold grass and he soon joined you.
“You know I never really got to know you. Technically we have only met once before.”
He looked over at you.
“True but I don’t have many friends here or any at all really. You were more of a friend to me that day than anyone here has ever been to me.”
“Do you not like them?”
“It’s not that. There are just some…. Issues between circus families here. Making friends isn’t the easiest thing in the world to do here.”
“Well you got me.”
“Yeah… I guess I do…. Don’t I?”
The two of you continued to sit there in silence. You didn’t know why but you felt comfortable around Jerome. Hell you have only ever met him twice and you feel more comfortable around him rather than you do around most of your friends. You noticed that there were few people left at the circus and sighed.
“I should probably head home…”
He jumped up quickly at the statement.
His face froze when he realized what he had said.
“I-I’m sorry I just…. It felt like I didn’t get much time with you.”
“I guess time flies.”
You could see sadness in his eyes.
“Would you like to walk me back to my car?”
He looks at you and smiled before nodding. The two of you walked back in silence. You wouldn’t know his reason for not talking but you knew your own. You were trying to figure out what pulled you to Jerome. You were certain it wasn’t normal to become best friends with each other after only meeting twice. You shrugged it off and realized that your feet had taken you to your car while you were lost in thought.
You turned to Jerome to say goodbye and noticed his gloomy expression. You frowned.
“Hey cheer up.”
“What if you don’t come back?”
The question struck you by surprise. You sighed and gave him a half smile.
“I promise I’ll come back. In fact…. I’ll come back tomorrow. Deal?”
If put his finger on his chin as if to think.
“Okay but if your not here tomorrow you’re in trouble missy.”
You both laughed. You hugged him one last time before getting in your car.
“I’ll see you tomorrow!”
You drove off leaving Jerome by himself.
Author’s note: I know it’s kind of a calm start and kinda boring but to start this I have to start with where y'all meet!!!! Things will escalate quickly after this though 😉😉 Anywho I hope y'all enjoy this and I hope it’s good because I worked a lot of today on it💜💜💜🐢🐢🐢 love you babes!!!!
the genderfluid, transgender, and beautiful transfemme hero. she loves her body the way it is and doesnt change a thing even when she doesnt because fuck the haters she is who she is and she always will be, she will always be a fluid force in motion, a snake that moves and coils and strikes, a dangerous, gorgeous, kind-hearted soul.
shes funny and she makes mistakes and shes not perfect and she has a lot going against her but she fights it, she fights it all, she died fighting for a man who would not fight for himself and she died with honor, she died a hero, and she continued to be a hero afterward in valhalla. she admits her mistakes and is a positive force even when she could very easily be the opposite. we all know she’s easily the most dangerous woman in the riordanverse as well as the most beautiful, precious, and deserving of love and immortality. she makes pottery, feels a happiness that comes in creating instead of destruction, and thats so important to me. she was made homeless by her garbage family and despite having one of the worst godly parents a girl could ask for, she doesnt become anything like them. she becomes like herself, she accepts herself, and she keeps fighting. she keeps creating.
basically, i love her, she is my dearest wife who sometimes has very, very husband days, and i will always protect her (or occasionally him). thank you, alex fierro. this small trans boy loves you.
She shoved aside the part of her mind that told her it didn’t matter. Pushed it back into a corner with the other thought, the one creeping up asking her why it mattered so much that he lied.
Cassian didn’t answer to her. She wasn’t a part of the resistance. She wasn’t a rebel, she didn’t owe any allegiance to the Alliance, and so Cassian didn’t owe any allegiance to her. But he had lied to her. About only guessing as to where her father was, about what he really was planning on doing when they found him. About why she needed to stay behind.
“You’re in shock,” he said.
Maybe if she had paid more attention she would have noticed his eyes give him away. She would have seen it every time she brought up her father. She would have seen him look away when she asked if Eadu was where her father was. When he explained why only Bodhi could go with him. When she made her plan to bring her father back to testify in front of the Alliance and all he did was duck his head.
Maybe she would have noticed that he’d all but told her before he climbed off the ship into the rain with Bodhi.
There is a belief still widely kept that the observable universe is held together in the jaws of a serpent.
Imagine it: great raking coils moving thick as oil over the surface of everything—
the surface of you.
When it’s hot out, and you’re real tired, and maybe you’ve just had a crying fit or scraped your knees—
you can see it, wide as a church door or the gap under your bed.
There are monsters out there. So many that they blur over time. You start believing in ghosts, start believing in god and the power of crystals and all sorts of things that wind up
buried in your herb garden or tucked into a pillowcase and forgotten
in the same way you forget what you said and what was said to you.
It’s a stretch to let yourself become the sum of every telescope aimed at your heavens—
at your hells. It’s a stretch to be forgiven, to be seen,
except through the screen doors and gold silks of all you desired for yourself
once upon a time.
Some say, when pretending to be brave, that there is nothing beyond the self.
Tempting like a tail curls around the idea of an apple
and finds fangs wrapped in lips soft from the rotting and the
effort and the want for more.
Tempting to devour void upon void because there will always, always be more.
Always more hollow logs; more damp tinder; more empty mugs.
If there is a snake draped across all of space and time, it must get hungry too, heaving itself through fields of bright gaseous matter. It must be easy to slip whole species through the gaps in
You see, like the way a night unzips itself for you in a roar, like
all your gems spread in a tarnish across your bed,
that there is a tender want for absence in every gap you fill. You are a soft decline,
waltzing down a string of moons towards polished woods
waiting to embrace everything you are,
expanding as a star.
There is a blankness to your desperate breath, crawling with words as it is,
and it is patient and long as the dawn.
It is inconsolable, it is the most infectious thing you’ve ever seen,
and it is beautiful to behold:
the deep, dark sleep you breed in the midst of things—
loud as history,
big as light,
careful as searching scales over an endless sight.
Magnus’ eyes snapped open. The steady strum of energy
settling into his bones, holding him in its vice as he felt the barely
He closed his eyes and cast his magic out, feeling and
searching till he felt that harsh tug.
He was out of the bed before the thought was completed,
snapping himself into new clothes as fast as he could blink.
He threw open a portal and dashed through, following that
trembling bright blue thread, ringing so loud, he could hear it in his ears,
vibrating and filled with fear… so much fear… so much pain.
He was going to rip them apart, from limb to limb.
When he stepped out of the portal, it didn’t come as a
surprise to find that he was in a warehouse filled with Circle members. What
was surprising was the fact that this particular headquarters was so close to
Of course the idiots that were the Clave wouldn’t think
to look right beneath their noses for the Circle members. He was sure if anyone
had mentioned their suspicions about the Circle members being that close to the institute, the Clave would have thought it ridiculous.
“I told you it would work,” someone said, sounding so calm
and confident, Magnus decided that he would remove the man’s head first.
He turned his head and saw a man with blond hair, grinning
like he’d just hit the lottery.
Magnus allowed himself to smile, and the blonde’s steps
faltered, fear flashing in his eyes for a brief moment, and Magnus wondered if
he was going to bolt. But then the man visibly pulled himself together and
resumed the cocky stroll.
“Of course it would work,” another voice said and Magnus’
eyes swept through the room, the darkness seeming like day to him as he
narrowed in on the one man at the back. In his hands he held a warlock child.
Her hair had matted over, tear tracks streaked across her
cheeks. She trembled in his hands. But the one thing that made Magnus himself
begin to tremble was the cut on her cheek, a long slice that had clearly been
made by a knife.
“Who did that,” his voice cracked like a whip, and he
watched the men gathered flinch. Even the ones who had been at their different
corners in the warehouse, gathering weapons in preparation to storm wherever it
was that they planned on heading to, all stopped what they were doing.
No one answered so he repeated the question. “I said. Who
The one at the back with his hands on the child, spoke. “I
did,” he said, sounding extremely proud that he’d tortured a child.
Magnus’s fingers moved, lethal fast and coiled like a whip.
The man’s hands dropped, severed off from his elbows.
Magnus grinned, his smile sharp and biting as he felt his
magic slowly rise.
Not the calmer one that he used when he didn’t want to hurt anyone.
No. This power wanted to maim. Wanted to kill. Needed to
“Close your eyes,” he murmured to the child. She dropped to
her knees, raised both hands to cover her ears and did just that.
Magnus took a step forward.
“M…m…mercy,” he heard a thin voice cry out.
He turned to look at the man, a Circle member shaking so
hard, a lesser man would have felt sorry for him.
Magnus smirked, letting his powers slowly seep through,
showing his marks as clear as day, the one part of him that showed that truly
they’d been stupid to bait him.
“Mercy,” Magnus asked, and followed it with a laugh, as hard
and dark as the magic that had started pulsing out of him, searching for an
escape, looking for what it could singe and eviscerate. “My father is Asmodeus,
you fool.” His voiced echoed in the warehouse. He took a step forward. “And there
is only one rule in his kingdom. Repay evil, with even more evil.”
And with that, he let his power loose, watching it ripple
through, spreading its dark energy all across the room, bleeding and maiming
They screamed, hair raising scream that echoed in the
room, their screams merging with the sound of cracking bone and the wet sound
of flesh separating from flesh.
And then he called out to it. Destroy. Raze. Leave nothing standing.
His power morphed, ever willing to answer his call. The building
burned. Fire rapidly spreading, dancing on the walls like his magic did.
Everything burned but Magnus. Magnus and the little warlock
child who still had her ears covered and stayed cowering on the floor.
He reached her and reached out, hands enveloping her form as
he pulled her to him.
She went willingly with a terrified cry, keeping her gaze
Magnus couldn’t blame her.
“Let’s take you home,” he said and threw a portal open,
pulling her along with him as he left the warehouse and the Circle members in it
Request: hello!!!! could I request a jungkook scenario where the reader a huge fan of the king of masked singer show and jk was going to be on the show so he had to sneak out of your shared apartment to record the taping to not ruin the surprise and you’re suspicious about if he’s cheating but then you guys are watching it when it airs and you instantly know it’s him. Thank you!!☺️
At first you thought it was nothing, the sounds of keys was most probably coming from one of your neighbors, but you didn’t really hear the other neighbors when you were inside your apartment, while thinking that, you heard it again louder, so you opened your eyes and tried to pay attention to the sound. Your room was dark since you had gone there to take a little nap, Jungkook had been sleeping with you at that moment but the place he occupied was currently empty. That was what made you get up carefully to search for him.
-Jungkook? - there was no response from him and he wasn’t at the door neither, so you peeked through one of the windows and saw his car driving away.
He hadn’t told you anything about a meeting or seeing someone that night, you looked around the house and didn’t find a single note telling you what he was going to do and after checking your phone you also noticed he hadn’t left any kind of message there either.
You took a glass of water to think about it, this wasn’t the first time Jungkook sneaked away like this. It wasn’t like he had to ask permission from you, but you usually told each other about your days and schedules just like any other couple would, so you didn’t understand these sudden escapades of him. And the weirdest thing about them was that the last time he’d also taken the chance of you taking a nap to leave.
The first time he’d gone away like this you asked him where he was and he told you he was going to be at a music store he visited often with his friends, you decided to get there because it was on your way and it wouldn’t take you too much, so you could pick him up and maybe get dinner together close from there. But when you got there Jungkook was nowhere to be seen and when you asked him where he was he had answered so rushed and nervously in your opinion, blurting out an excuse and hanging up without you even had the chance to think about it.
At that moment you’d given him the benefit of the doubt, it could have been nothing and you didn’t want to get anxious because of nothing, but since it kept happening you couldn’t forget about it, and now it was beyond suspicious. Jungkook never had this kind of behavior and you didn’t know how to react. You repeated to yourself that you should stay calm, talk with him about it before thinking something that could be wrong. Butif he wasbehaving this way it was because he had something to hide, you were sure about that.
You stared down at your glass of water and tried to stop the frown forming on your face. It was obvious, why else would he feel the need to sneak out of your shared apartment and hide from you, to not take the time to tell you where he was, it was only because Jungkook didn’t want you to find him and that thing he was hiding. Maybe it wasn’t a thing per se, but a girl that he was seeing. You gasped with that realization, could it be?
“Everything off, Lucy-” he purred sweetly, dark eyes trailing down her face, “-except that apron.”
The turn of events that led to this
escaped her, not that she really wanted to think about anything but
this exact moment. The feel of bodies moving as one, the coil of her

Hey, your blog is awesome! Just found it, love the content. I'm not sure how interested you are in terrestrial plasma, but what do you think about stellarators for steady-state power generation (as opposed to tokamaks)?
Awww, thank you! I’m glad you like the content!
Magnetic confinement fusion (MCF) reactors come in
different shapes and magnetic configurations which lead to dozens of
variations, there are about seven types of magnetic fusion devices. The tokamak
and stellarator designs use toroidal field coils to confine hot plasma in a
ring-shaped vessel. Of course, for magnetic confinement to work, the magnetic
field lines generated by the superconducting coils and moving plasma need to
twist and turn as they loop around the ring. The tokamak creates this twisting
by inducing longitudinal currents within the plasma,
the optimized (the classical was bad at confining fast particles) stellarator, like the
Wendelstein 7-X(pictured below), uses warped magnetic coils to
create a natural plasma path. Consequently, stellarators do
not suffer from current-driven instabilities and disruptions, and offer continuous operation (weaker pressure driven currents are
still present due to the bootstrapping effect). Tokamaks do not work
in a steady state, but in pulse mode because the plasma
current is induced by a central transformer coil; so the plasma, which is heated by the current itself (Joule heating
is created/destroyed in each pulse of the transformer. Stellarators are a good alternative to tokamaks due
to their numerous advantages, they offer
the best possibility for steady state operation; there is no hard beta limit,
and they can exceed the Greenwald density limit (no disruptions).
Their main disadvantage is
that they’re a lot harder to construct than other
fusion devices, they require supercomputer
calculations and state-of-the-art metalworking.
Summary: After a long day of restless studying, Phil is hungry and tries to get a candy bar from a vending machine. However, the vending machine won’t give it up and he gets his arm stuck in it. Dan shows up and tries to help.
A/N: This is my first Phanfic and I haven’t written in almost 3 years. So there’s that and here’s this.
It was the week of finals as you could feel the tension, panic, and stress radiating off of the students on campus. Students who had already given up were causing a mayhem as they lie like lumps on the ground. The library was no longer a ghost town but now the number one hotspot on campus with people in every inch and corner, at study desks or in studying rooms.
Phil was among them, he sat at a study desk right next to the window. However, his gaze kept traveling to the outside world, eyeing the other students bundled up in their big winter jackets and hustling through the streets. His concentration was elsewhere and his mind was in no state to focus on any of the words that were laid out on the pages. Every word he was trying to study was smushed together inside his brain, running in circles over and over again.
It was way too quiet in the bunker. Other than a simple salt and burn this morning, you and the boys had nothing to do. The three of you decided to go out for drinks, but soon into the night, Dean and his impeccable flirting skills had landed him with a fairly busty girl from across the bar. With a wink, he tossed you the keys to his car and left you with Sam.
Soon after, you and Sam decided to head back to the bunker. Sam immediately went to the library, reading for fun, so you just went to your room. Sitting down on your bed, you suddenly realized how much pent up energy you really had.
‘Just relax,’ you think to yourself.
But of course that wasn’t possible. So you had to settle with cleaning.
