Fanfic (Risingwood): Say It With A Shirt

Another little short scene thing that I’ll never find a place for in an actual fic, but that I still wanted to write.

I can assure you it’s just as stupid as Butter On Rye, if not more so.

You have been warned.

“Morning, Jon,” Ryan greeted, dropping a kiss on top of Jon’s head.

Jon opened his mouth to reply, but all that came out was a weak croak. He scowled and opened one of his desk drawers. Ryan raised an eyebrow as he rummaged around inside.

The dark-haired man resurfaced with a triumphant smile on his face, brandishing a shirt that read, I lost my voice.

Ryan blinked.

“And you got that printed on a shirt because…?”

Sulu can’t remember the last time he’s slept in his bed by himself. He’s not sure when this routine of Chekov climbing into his bed had started, but he’s stopped fighting it. Actively, at least. He still always asks what it was this time, and Chekov always has a new answer.

“Zhere’s somezhing wrong vizh my bed,” he states one night, but won’t say what as he climbs into Sulu’s bed and wraps himself up in his blanket. Sulu says nothing, just tries to pull back as much blanket as he can.

“I had a nightmare, Hikaru, can I sleep vizh you?” he mumbles the next, and his voice is soft and hoarse. Sulu says no more, just gently pulls him into his arms and holds him until he falls asleep, a tangle of long limbs and soft breathing.

“Is zhis not my bed?” he asks, and Sulu laughs – this has to be his worst excuse yet. “Vell, I’m comfortable now, so…” and he dozes off. Sulu just rolls over and falls asleep too.

The final excuse comes one night when Chekov comes back late to their room. He’s been drinking, Sulu can tell by his stumbling and soft muttering to himself. Almost on cue, he feels Chekov flop into bed next to him, flinching as he feels cold skin against his – Chekov’s just pulled most of his clothes off, not bothering with pyjamas. He feels Chekov nuzzling into his back.

“I love you,” he mumbles against Sulu’s skin before he falls asleep. Sulu gently pulls Chekov’s arm around him.

“You could have just said that to begin with, Pavel,” he whispers, letting his eyes close.

They have a lot to talk about, but for now Sulu just lets himself drift off to sleep.

Welcome to Fitblr - 7 things you F***ing need to know.

On a side note

I don’t know how to tell you this so that you’ll listen

maybe if I swear in the title. 

I want to take a quick moment (haha. Me. quick. HA!) to talk to the newbies. To the folks just starting out on this journey. To the people who have had enough… for real this time! 

The thing is, I’m going to tell you a bunch of things you already know and unless it is “for real this time” FOR REAL AND HONESTLY you are going to blink, stop reading this post half way through and move on to the quick-fix detox tea companies that post pictures of unrealistic “skinny” people and promise you a handful of lies. If that’s you, you aren’t for real this time. Good luck though and when you figure out that you aren’t going to lose 100 lbs in a week for that perfect chiseled beach look - come on back. We’ll be here. 

For those of us on the “for real this time” trail, there are some things I want to tell you and you’ve probably heard them a million times before, but maybe this time a lightbulb flickers over your head and you have a brilliant AHA! moment all because of me. Probably not, but maybe. And maybe you are sitting there wondering who the hell I am and how I can possibly tell you what to do. First, I am not telling you what to do. I am telling you things I know FOR ME. Do they apply to you also, Maybe!

So who am I? I am just like you. My name is T. I am a blogger and a fitblr and a runner (ha!) and a swimmer (ha!) and a weight lifter (ha!) and a kickboxer (ha!) and a god-damn-zen-master (ha!) (or so I have been told - because here in my world, EFFORT IS EVERYTHING! I THINK THEREFORE I AM! I have nearly 500 followers which is breadcrumbs in the blogger world but HUGE to me and  much to my chagrin a bunch of them are porn blogs I can’t seem to make go away… sigh.

My highest weight was 220 lbs. My current weight is 206 lbs. My body fat % has dropped from 45% to 40%. I have been working, steadily on my fitness for almost two years. When I started, I knew nothing. I was sore, tired, sick and lazy. I’ve been working on this for two years, and yeah, it got a bit easier, but I still have to work at it every single day and today when I woke up sore and achy and tired I knew I wanted to share this with you. 

Things the new-to-this need to know (or things the old-at-this needs to be reminded of): 

1. Don’t expect it to be easy - remember how I talked about quick fixes and detox teas. THEY ARE ALL LIES. This is not going to be easy, not even a little bit. Prepare yourself for hard, then expect harder. You’ll probably cry. You’ll probably quit. You’ll probably cry. Keep going. 

2. Don’t expect it to be easy - people are going to tell you all kinds of things. “I lost the weight and didn’t change my diet”. “Oh, I just woke up like this.” “Take this pill” “I don’t eat carbs” bla bla bla. People are going to downplay your effort and success. One of the hardest parts of your walk down this path is comparison. COMPARISON IS AN ASSHOLE. FUCK COMPARISON. YOU DO YOU. (I can’t make my capital letters any bigger…) YOU. DO. YOU. Everybody else has their own journey and 80% of them are going to lie to you because they don’t want you to know the before. YOU.DO.YOU. 

3. Don’t expect it to be easy - your body is going to tell you that you can’t do it. It is going to tell you that it is tired and sore and incapable. THAT IS NOT YOUR BODY. That is your brain. Your body is far more capable than you are giving it credit for and the first time you feel your body accomplish something you didn’t think it could accomplish will give you a type of confidence-boosting-euphoria you will never find in any fucking blueberry-acai-grapefruit-organic-detox-cup-of-overpriced-water-lies. Keep going. 

4. Don’t expect it to be easy - I bet you have a goal weight. You have a plan. You are going to do this this time because you have written it down on a piece of a paper and you are going to lose 20 lbs and you are going to look beautiful and you are going to be able to go onto a beach in a bathing suit and that person is going to notice you because you are really-really-ridiculously good looking now. Find that piece of paper. Got it? BURN IT! 

  • You are already really really ridiculously good looking. I know we say that all the time here at Fitblr Central and we are going to keep saying it until you also start saying it. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. YOU ARE GOOD LOOKING. YOU.DO.YOU AND THAT IS AMAZING! Own that shit! Flaunt that shit! 
  • You don’t need to lose 10-20-30 even 50 lbs. Oh? Your doctor said you need to for your BMI? Fuck the BMI. More bullshit. You don’t need to lose weight. YOU NEED TO BE HEALTHY! YOU NEED TO FEEL STRONG! (You may need to lose fat) but you 100% DO NOT need to lose weight. A lot of my posts are tagged with #duckthescale (an autocorrect faux pa I retained and use regularly) and I mean it. Fuck the scale. Who gives a shit what you weigh? BE STRONG! BE HAPPY! BE HEALTHY! BE FLEXIBLE! BE COURAGEOUS! BE KIND! BE CONFIDENT! BE A FIGHTER! BE NICE TO YOURSELF! Don’t make your goal your weight. please. You will end up disappointed. Focus on literally a million other things, not that useless number. 
  • Unlearn everything you thought you know. You KNOW  a lot of things. Dr. Oz. Oprah. Advertisement. Healthy and Beauty products. The people on that TV program with the catchy song and the spokes-person who looks like an angel; all of these people have taught you a lot of things. Forget them all. My favorite quote of the moment is: “I’m still learning. I’m still unlearning.” It is way harder to unlearn all the crap you’ve been “taught” than it is to learn the new stuff. 

5. Don’t expect it to be easy - you will need to wade through piles and piles and piles of overwhelming information. You will talk to hundreds of people who offer you advice (good) and advice (bad) and opinions (both warranted and un-requested). You will need to learn which advice is worth listening to. Here’s a tip: most of it isn’t. Read. Research. Talk to professionals. Talk to people in community groups and social media who can help (be careful who you listen to). Find people you trust and trust your instincts and don’t expect it to be easy. Find what works for you. You’ll get there.  

6. Don’t expect it to be easy - go slow. Don’t start out at 400 horsepower straight out of the gate. You’ll just break something. Take it slow. If it means you spend the first 2 weeks at the gym walking on the treadmill doing a weird book-reading juggling act while trying to secretly spy on all the gym goers using the equipment so you can hopefully figure out what this shit show is all about (true story) then do that. Just go slow. The Rock once said “for the first (enter timeline) I just went to the gym, sat there, and read a magazine. It’s about building the habit” (not his exact words but you get the idea) That really stuck with me. Build the habit however you need to. Remember: you.do.you.

AND THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER:

7. Don’t expect it to be easy - BE KIND TO YOURSELF. This may be the hardest thing you do. Forgive yourself. Recommit every morning if you have to. If you take 5 steps today, take 6 steps tomorrow. If you skip a day, start again tomorrow. Be patient. Work hard, always. Love yourself first and please please please be KIND to yourself always.


help I started writing a Maedhros/Fingon fic and it was meant to be fluffy smut but it turned into angsty smut so fast it made my head spin. what is wrong with me, or should I just blame Tolkien? after all, in silm canon everything shatters into pieces sooner or later, including pretty elf cousins.

to be fair, I’ve written a lot of fluffy kidfic lately. maybe this is the natural counterpoint.

Hi there. These are some impressive Ninjago character charts you've got there. A friend and I have also been dabbling in the Ninjagian alphabet and I made a website with screenshots from the show, showing some writing. (babysitterdienst-st-hedwig. de/ letters/ alphabet. html) You are welcome to download any screenshots you want and copy any letters still missing on your chart. Could I, in return, link to your alphabet page? Moonlight mm123

Sure! Go ahead! And actually, I’m not really missing all that many letters - you can see in the “latest” chart I put out a while ago that we’re only missing six characters. However, in my scramble to try and update the chart today (as about two and a half months ago or so I found a very probable capital Q character that I never added), I decided to try and look over some of my other collected images to see if I missed anything else… and I finally identified the mysterious symbol that’s been taunting me for a long time! It’s lowercase Q, another letter that I never thought we’d be able to find!

That said, I’m too exhausted from excitement at the moment to try and update the chart, but yeah, you can go ahead and link to my whole Ninjago Kanji tag if you want. ;D

the solution is, i see a whole room of these mutant kids,
fused at the wrist, i simply tell them they should shoot at this,
simply suggest my chest and this confused music,
it’s obviously best for them to turn their guns to a fist.

(wakes up all grumpy) the soundcloud chill beats producers are in my trashcans again…. searching for obscure samples they can put a kick and snare over…… bertha, give me the letters (grabs my capital letter paper cutouts from my lovely wife and walks out proudly displaying them to the hooligans to scare them away with the idea of proper capitalization)
