Dupain-Cheng loved with a fierce sort of affection that gently destroyed him.

took Adrien an embarrassingly long time to recognize it for what it was.
When everything he knew was detachment and afterthought his compass for
affection was nearly non-existent. He knew Nathalie’s cold comfort and
his father’s broken promises and Chloe’s noisy fawning. He knew conditions and
strings and if-thens.

Everyone in his life was striving.

prodded and pulled until he smiled just right and spoke just so and moved just
he didn’t know any different.
loved in the little ways.
loved in passing moments and quiet gestures and thoughtfully in a way that was
almost careless. In a way that was so very Marinette.
had always been careful, but in the five weeks since he found out the Truth he
felt like his shoes were made of glass and every next step could be the one to

blue eyes made him feel like dancing, glass be damned.
removing the mask he had been gifted with the knowledge that his best friend
was never really as far away as she seemed. Ladybug was untouchable.
Marinette was so very, very there.

Marvin and Jackieboyman are heading to victory, Chase it’s determined to pass them, Schneeps is regretting agreeing to be part of this shit, Anti thinks that this is stupid and Rob is there.
Bonus that i was to lazy to color:
Angus The Survival Hunter and the announcer from the Japan World Cup narrating the race! well angus not so much because he keeps getting interrupted by the enthusiastic and loud anouncer because if we are going to make egos out of Jack’s series, his annoucer “persona” from that series deserves to be an ego.
I was resting my back against
Shawn’s broad chest, while his fingers were running through my wet newly washed
hair. We were chilling in bed, watching movies after a long day for the both of
us. We were sipping beers, celebrating this day finally coming to an end.
I was tucked tightly into a
blanket, feeling Shawn place tender kisses on my neck once in a while. His arms
were tightly shut around my body, making every inch of my skin feel tickly just
by his faint yet loving touches.
Favourite Robron fanfics? Looking for some new ones to read!
I read so many - new and old - it’s kinda ridiculous tbh! I highly recommend looking through the robron tag on AO3 to keep up to date with all the current fics surfacing whether it be a multi chapter WIP or a one shot buuuut here’s just a few of my ultimate favourites in my bookmarks right now (some completed, some ongoing):
Fool’s Gold by strongboyfriends- from big bang week; pure fluff, cute, comical, Aaron and Robert realising they’re meant to be soulmates which all starts with a car park space (I’d also recommend reading every single fic in the Emmerdale Big Bang tag because I’m high key in love with them all).
we’ll meet again by littlelooneyluna - and another big bang fic (but one I’ll never forget); war au, based in the past and present, absolutely heart wrenching, cried my eyes out, will transform your entire life.
Falling Again by escapingreality51- Aaron and Robert are brought back together after their affair and after Aaron left Emmerdale upon hearing Robert was gonna be a dad. Much better than the current baby situation, I promise.
hope is a distance unreachedbylittlelooneyluna - Robert is on the run with his 5 year old daughter, Aaron steps right into his life and spins his world around. If you haven’t read this yet then what the fuck are you doing?! An absolute angst fest, ruins my life, but also warms my heart SAVE MY PERFECT LITTLE FAMILY.
Blessing or a Curse by robronalways -soulmate au. I’ve read many but this is my favourite! Follows the timeline on the show with personal tweaks but with the same amount of pain. Aaron and Robert are meant to be and not just because they’re connected. That’s about it.
M_au pair by veryveryverytemporarily - male nanny au. Aaron looks after Robert’s children and ends up getting more than he bargained for.Very sexy. Very French. Very emosh.
Dales United by wellyfullofale - Robert is Aaron’s manager in a top of the league football team. Just read it.Will change you as a human being.
Every No Turns Into Maybe by strongboyfriends - an old fic, one of the first I ever read when I first discovered robron before reading about daddy!robron was unbearable. Had me hooked. Stunning writing. One I can read over and over!
Summary: Spending the night with Steve, your boyfriend of three months, goes better than you planned.
Fluff, implied smut
Being with Steve Harrington could be rough sometimes, him always wanting to be around, whether it be just so he knows you’re safe or to hold your hand in need of affection. You’d known the hair-perfectionist since middle school, but only got together the past few months after the gate was finally closed. You figure all you both needed was a small push, and unfortunately the world possibly ending was that - huge - push.
Which, brought us here. Steve standing at your door with a bag of KFC and a grin on his face. “Sorry I’m a little late, this couple took forever in line and-” You grab his arm and hank him inside, closing the door quickly. “Keep it down, my parents are sleeping. I can’t deal with another talk.” You shudder, the memory of the last time Steve came over and your mom walked in on you both making out. God, the talk she and your dad gave you..
Steve seems to remember as well, laughing to himself, “Yeah, okay. Anyway what’s the plan tonight?”

“Bev for Stan, over.” Beverly stretched her rather long legs out in the large bath jacuzzi, releasing the button of the walkie-talkie as she waited to hear back.
She stared down at her nails, a frown on her face when she noticed that they were chipping. Of course, that didn’t really matter as it would all come off in six days for some fresh nail polish, but it still annoyed her enough that she would have to repaint them. She wondered if Eddie would let her paint his nails also.
“Beverly, it is six o’clock in the morning. Why are you up?”
Stan’s sleepy voice sounded in from the other side, and Beverly waited a beat before rolling her eyes and pressing the talk button. “You’re supposed to say ‘over’ when you’re finished talking, Stan. Over.”
“This is ridiculous, Beverly. Go back to sleep. Over.”
Stan sat up in the bed, his eyes glazing over a half asleep Bill, who seemed agitated by the loud walkie talkie. In response, Stan turned it down slightly.
“No, Stan. You promised you would help me with operation get Richie and Eddie back together. There’s no going back, now stay up and talk to me. Over.”
Stan groaned quietly at Beverly’s persistence, resting his head back against the pillow as he turned to look at Bill who was staring back at him. That definitely startled him a bit.
“Fine, Bev. Why do we need to talk about this early in the morning?” When there was nothing but radio silence on the other end, Stan sighed once he realized why. “Over.”
please tell me about finnish mythology i would love to listen to that for a half hour
oooohohohhohhh thank you so much for this ask anon and sorry I took forever but I just can’t pass this with just two or three sentences when Finnish mythology and animistic religion are literally my favourite things in the world 8D
okay I’m just gonna list some things about old Finnish beliefs and such that I find especially delightful and might or might not still believe in
so before Christianity came to Finland, we worshipped a lot of different gods, i.e. Ahti who was the god of water and Vellamo, his wife - if you’re gonna go fishing, you gotta pray/make an offering to those two to get a good haul. or Ukko who was the god of the weather and the sky and harvest and thunder, although his real name wasn’t Ukko (which btw means “old man”) but apparently people were too afraid to say his real name out loud. might be it was actually Perkele or Ilmarinen
yes Perkele hasn’t always been a bad word and people think it means the Devil but it wad most likely the old Finnish god of thunder
oh and bears were holy animals to us. that’s the reason why there are so many words that mean “bear” in the Finnish language; so that you don’t accidentally summon any bears to you. like, when people hunted and killed a bear, they’d celebrate it (it was called peijaiset) and the party ended with the skull of the bear being hung on a tree. sometimes they chose a young girl to be the bear’s bride in the festivities to make the spirit of the bear happy
basically in ye olden times Finns believed in elves of all sorts, like forest elves and house elves and saUNA ELVES and seriously when I was a kid, we were told that there were elves and trolls and hobgoblins and what have you in the nearby forest.
and sauna elves are the best thing because okay obviously Finnish culture has always been very closely tied to sauna, like we would give birth and nurse the sick and prepare the dead for the burial (fun fact: dead people’s legs are apparently still tied together so they don’t rise up and chase after the living) in the sauna. and of course you wash up and relax in the sauna. so sauna elves are these small humanoid gentle creatures that live in saunas (apparently one per sauna) and come out to bathe after the humans have left. also one of my sources says they punished the ones that didn’t behave themselves in a sauna. I don’t know how
and don’t even get me started on Kalevala, like that’s our national epic and it’s entirely written in a very specific form of singing and it tells how the world was made and about our gods and other characters and it’s amazing
and we used to do magic!! in that specific form of singing. we used to sing spells. how cool is that. Finns are all witches and wizards and shamans pass it on
and all in all people might not realize it but a lot of our proverbs and holidays and such stem from the old animistic religion and our culture is still very much tied to the old beliefs and hell even some of our traditions involving holidays are actually old magic, for example we put seven or nine or maybe ten (it kinda changes depending on who you ask) different kinds of flowers under your pillow for the Midsummer night and then you dream of your future spouse
and then someone in Sweden decided that we filthy heathens need to be put in our place and they set out on a crusade to introduce us to Christianity
oh and I also have a few posts in my Finnish mythology tag but it’s not much. but hey thank you so much for asking, anon!! even if I didn’t talk about even half the things that I’d like to talk about but hey I loved it nonetheless 8D
