my life went by waiting for you

Listen I know we all love bilingual Lance and boy oh boy guess who’s here with some bilingual headcanons!!

•Lance used to speak fluent spanish as a child, but when he started going to public school, he just … Lost that ability.
•Lance can understand some words and phrases in spanish but doesn’t really know how to form sentences. (he knows all the cursewords and tries to use them as much as he can bc that’s Cool™)
•He can understand enough words to get the gist of what people are saying.
•Lance started to feel kind of detatched from his family since he couldn’t speak spanish and basically everyone else (save for the younger kids) could.
•His family doesn’t put any effort into teaching him spanish bc they want him to be more American than Hispanic (a sad truth that I unfortunately experienced)
•Lance starts to take spanish classes seriously when he gets to high school. He slowly learns how to form proper sentences, and he’s at the top of his class bc he wants to connect with his family language-wise. He tries hard, and grasps the language without any help from his fluent-spanish-speaking parents.
•One time, he had to do a project in spanish class, but he didn’t know how to form the sentence he wanted. So, he goes to his parents for help.
•Big mistake.
•His parents are from different regions of south america, so they speak different forms of spanish. Whatever he’s learning at school is. Not. The same.
•He had to go back and forth from his dad to his mom for one goddamn question like holy crow.
•"No, no! Your father is wrong! I speak PROPER spanish!“
-That was an actual quote from my mother it’s legit.
•His father ends up being right. At least in terms of School Spanish.
•Lance’s teacher ended up taking points away anyway bc she knew he wasn’t capable of speaking in such eloquent, complex spanish.
•He once went over his vocab list with his fam since he forgot his spanish dictionary at school. Another mistake. Don’t ask your different-spanish-speaking parents for translations when they’re in the same room.
•They spent more time arguing about the translation than actually translating.
•Mom: “Aficion? I’ve never heard that word in my life! It doesn’t exist!”
•"It means ceiling fan, mom.“
•M: “Oh! Then you mean ‘hincha’!”
•Dad: “Hincha?! Are you trying to teach our son slang?!”
•"Wait, that’s slang?!“
•"Well, ya-”
•D: “Aficion es the tiki tiki.”
•M: “No. El tiki tiki es la hincha!”
•They slowly seep into full spanish and Lance is watching on in amusement.
•He ends up texting his aunt about the right answer, and she tells him that it’s aficion.
•Mom loses the argument.
•He has a presentation in class for an oral test. He knows he has a great accent and great understanding of spanish, but when he goes up to speak, he can’t say anything.
•Everything comes out slow and stuttered, but he still gets an A+ bc his pronunciation is on point.
•There’s a non-hispanic/latinx kid in his class. They get straight A’s and speak faster than Lance. Lance is jealous of them. It’s not fair that a person who isn’t surrounded by latin culture can speak it so well, while he can’t.
•They’re the top 2 in the class, but Lance is always second. He’s always second in everything.
•Eventually, Lance learns enough Spanish to understand full sentences. He gets a giddiness in his chest when he can understand EXACTLY what is being said in spanish. He loves it.
•Even when his parents are scolding him in spanish, he tries his best not to smile bc he UNDERSTANDS!! •He tries to get his parents/family to communicate with him in Spanish more bc he’s so proud that he can FINALLY understand them. He feels connected to them again, and loves the feeling of embracing his heritage at last.
•Then … His family asks hin why he never talks back in spanish.
•Lance is still shy and insecure about his spanish, bc sometimes he makes mistakes. And sometimes, fluent speakers are not the nicest when it comes to that. He’s afraid they’ll make fun of him bc he’s still learning.
•He goes to a restaurant that has people who only speak spanish in it. He then has to order from the menu.
•He asks for a soda. When the waitress leaves, his entire family is beaming at him. He asks why.
•They gush about his perfect pronunciation and format. They’re proud of him. They had no idea he knew it so well.
•Lance is almost brought to tears bc his family is just as proud of him as he is - especially on something so important to him.
•He talks and laughs with his family at dinner again after that.
•When he gets in space, he tries to keep himself knowledgeable in spanish. He doesn’t want to forget again.
•He listens to old spanish radio shows and songs all of the time. He listens to sports, no matter which kind, in spanish.
•He tries to teach the other paladins Spanish. He grins when they start cussing under their breath in spanish. Sometimes, the paladins will just slip into it and they’ll forget that they’re speaking another language bc it’s so second-nature to them.
•But Lance notices, and it feels a little more like home.

  • What she says: I'm fine
  • What she wants to say: I wanted to tell you one story. Uh. This is the story of the best meal I’ve ever had in my life, okay. Happened when I was eleven years old in Chicago, IL where I grew up. I went to a place called the Salt & Pepper Diner, uh, with my best friend John. We walk into the diner one day, and they had a jukebox there, okay? And the jukebox was three plays for a dollar. So we put in 7 dollars and selected 21 plays of of Tom Jones’s What’s New Pussycat. And then we ordered and waited.
  • Here’s the thing about when, uh, What’s New Pussycat plays over and over and over and over and over again. The second time it plays, your immediate thought is not ‘hey someone’s playing What’s New Pussycat again.’ It’s ‘hey, What’s New Pussycat is a lot longer than I first thought. The third time it plays you’re thinking maybe someone’s playing What’s New Pussycat again. The fourth time it plays you’re either thinking ‘whoa someone just played What’s New Pussycat FOUR TIMES or at least someone played it twice, and it’s a really long song.’ So the fifth time is the kicker, alright?
  • Now, John and I we’re watching the entire diner at this point, alright? Most people have gotten wind as to what’s going on. And we’re staring at this one guy and he’s sitting in like a booth with his stupid kids jumping around, and he’s like staring at his coffee cup like this, and he’s been onto us since the beginning. And he’s sitting there, and his hand is shaking, and he had this look on his face like, aw, like he had just gotten his thirty day chip from anger management. And he’s staring like this, and the fourth song fades out. It’s dead quiet. Then, I don’t know if you know this, but the song begins very quietly…
  • BWAAAH BWAAAAAH WHAT’S NEW PUSSYCAT and he goes GOD DAMN IT and pounds on the table, silverware flies everywhere, and it was fantastic. But a word about my best friend John and what a genius he was because when we first walked into the diner, okay? When we first got there and I’m punching in the What’s New Pussycats alright? I’ve punched in like 7 at this point then John says to me ‘hey hey hey before you punch in another What’s New Pussycat let’s drop in one It’s Not Unusual.’
  • Oh yes. That is when the afternoon went from good to great. After seven What’s New Pussycats. In a row - It played seven times. Suddenly - Dum da dum, IT’S NOT UNUSUAL and the sigh of relief that swept through the diner. People were so happy. It was like the liberation of France. You know for years scientists have wondered can you make grown men and women weep tears of joy by playing Tom Jones’s It’s Not Unusual and the answer is yes you can. Provided that it is preceded by seven What’s New Pussycats. It’s true. Dead honest.
  • And on the other hand. When we went back. Holy shit. It’s Not Unusual fade out. It’s dead quiet. BWAAAH BWAAAAH WHAT’S NEW PUSSYCAT people went insane. People went out of their minds. No one could handle it. No one could handle it. And they were surrounded by this seemingly indifferent staff that was just like ‘yup some crap as always.’
  • They unplugged the jukebox after eleven plays. And that was the best meal I ever had.

So today at E3 I was searching for the line to see Hideo Kojima and instead I found a restaurant covered in Layton and Katrielle decals, so I went inside and they gave me bags of earl gray tea (Layton’s favorite) and a sticker, a pen, and a post card for Katrielle’s new game. They also had an entire menu themed with Layton food and placemats with puzzles on them to solve while you wait. It’s easy to say this is the best day of my life. I also stole napkins and coffee sleeves.

Person: Why on earth do you fall in love with fictional characters rather that real boys?
  • Jem Carstairs: I can offer you my life, but it is a short life; I can offer you my heart, though I have no idea how many more beats it shall sustain. But I love you enough to hope that you wil not care that I am being selfish in trying to make the rest of my life - whatever length - happy, by spending it with you. I want to be married to you, Tessa. I want it more than I have ever wanted anything else in my life.
  • Augustus Waters: I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.
  • Maxon Schreave: I want everything with you, America. I want the holidays and the birthdays, the busy seasons and lazy weekends. I want peanut butter fingerprints on my desk. I want inside jokes and fights and everything. I want a life with you.
  • Will Herondale: Marry me. Marry me, Tess. Marry me and be Tessa Herondale. Or be Tessa Gray, or be whatever you wish to call yourself, but marry me and stay with me and never leave me, for I cannot bear another day of my life to go by that does not have you in it.

  • Tobias Eaton: I might be in love with you, but I'm waiting until I'm sure to tell you.

I needed more immortal Viktor and Reincarnated Yuuri, but this time Yuuri gives back :3 This was initially supposed to be for @victuuri-week for Day 6 - Reincarnation, but since they don’t allow continuations… continuation here. Writing to accompany @drawverylittle‘s heartwrenchingly gorgeous artwork here  <3

“Viktor!“ 

How cruel, Viktor laments as makes one final, dejected lap around the rink. His imagination is finally starting to rear it’s ugly head, ready to supply him with images and a voice that makes his heart feel like it’s shredding in his chest.

"Viktor!”

Again, he thinks as he slows, circling to center ice. He closes his eyes. He can almost picture him, running down the steps of the seating aisle, screaming Viktor’s name, smiling, waving. Maybe even blowing a kiss.

He can hear the footsteps now too. As if his mind wasn’t being cruel enough.

Yuuri would come down to the edge of the ice, maybe even dare to take a step on the slippery surface to meet Viktor halfway. At least, that’s what he had always done. That’s what Viktor craves more than anything else in the world.

Katsuki Yuuri. Yuuri’s smile. Yuuri’s laughter. Yuuri’s warmth, his love.

“Viktor, please. Look at me!”

Viktor finally gives in, as he does every time his mind tries to play tricks on him, tries to convince him Yuuri’s life has started again. He wants to believe it. It’s been far too long since Yuuri passed and he knows it’s nearing the time for him to search again. Because he will always search for Yuuri in this world. Yuuri is his world.

His eyes flutter open, expecting an empty rink. But he’s not alone.

And The Oscar Goes To
Also on AO3
Being publicly in the closet means Stiles can’t go to the Academy Awards with who he really wants, but it’s not like he’s going to win so he doesn’t have to worry about slipping up and thanking Derek in his speech… right?

This one is for my OSA (one sentence anon) who keeps cheering me on and motivating me. I wouldn’t have finished this WIP if it wasn’t for you, so thanks dude, whoever you are!

Earlier in his career, Stiles Stilinski had thought that walking one red carpet meant he had walked them all, but this award season had proved that assumption to be totally false. Walking a red carpet when you’ve been nominated for an award at the show was an entirely new experience. Sure, he had been nominated for People’s Choice Awards and more fan-driven ones before, but this year he had finally broken out of the rom-com and buddy comedy genres and into roles that challenged him. And this year, he was walking the red carpet at the Oscar with the chance to win not just one, but two once he entered the building.

Some had called 2016 his breakout year, others had said they knew that he could do it all along, and others still had questioned his ability to take on some of the more serious roles until they saw the films he was starring in. So here he was, at his third Academy Awards, but this time he was nominated instead of just attending. It had been a nerve-wracking award season that had left Stiles with a Golden Globe, a SAG award, and two Critic’s Choice awards, but none of that would hold a candle to this.

“Stiles, you have to move,” Lydia Martin–his agent and manager–said to him, pushing him toward the final reporter along the carpet. “Smile more.”

Stiles resisted the eyeroll that he could feel building; he didn’t want to be on the cover of some trashy tabloid with his eyes rolled back in his head and a caption commenting on his mental instability or an attitude problem. “Stiles! You look great,” Erica Reyes from Access Hollywood said, her voice sweet as syrup and her lips fire-engine red.  

“So do you, Ms. Reyes. Are you sure I can’t convince you to leave your husband and run away with me?” Stiles said with a charming smile. He had gone to UCLA with Erica’s husband Vernon Boyd and they had been, and still were, good friends. Boyd was currently the star wide receiver for the New Orleans Saints and would kick his ass if he were here in that moment.

“Ah ah ah, you know that I’m loyal,” Erica said with a smile. “But what about you? Who are you here with? Have a hot date that you’re hiding somewhere?”

“Of course I do,” Stiles told her. “My dad’s right over there.”

“Oh! Of course he is; he’s your permanent date during award season.” Erica said and then waved. “Hi, Sheriff.”

John Stilinski waved back with a smile, “Aren’t you going to ask me who I’m wearing?”

“I would, but that’s Laura Hale and I need to catch her before she gets inside. She and that hunky artist brother of hers skipped half the reporters already; I can’t let them skip me,” Erica said, giving Stiles a little smile. “It was lovely talking to you Stiles; good luck!”

Request: Hey could you please write a jughead x reader where they are getting really intimate and jughead notices the reader has self harm scares but still chooses her and they end up having some really steamy smut and he kisses her scares thanks

Okay, so basically, thank you for my first request! I’m sorry that I can’t really do ‘steamy smut’, as I’m not really comfortable with that yet so this isn’t really detailed. I also went less-steamy and more cute because of the situation, i don’t really know <3

“While involved in social movements in Seoul, I lived a truly hectic life. After a while, I was so fed up that I went to India for my sabbatical to experience a slow-paced society. I expected that it would be a bit like 1970s Korea. But when I was there, waiting for one or two hours was nothing. One time I went to the bank and was waiting for four hours, but someone would just cut in line. So I lost my temper and said I have to take care of my business then and there, but the bank teller said, ‘Wait, wait, just wait! It’s simple!’ I told my Indian friend’s family about this experience and they said, 'If you can’t do it today, you can do it tomorrow; if you can’t do it tomorrow, then you can do it the next day; if not this year, then next year; if not this life, then the next.’ That really left a deep impression. We usually say, 'I have to do it. I have to do it,’ but they say, 'It’s okay if it’s not now. It’s okay to be a little late.’ Through those words, they were caring for themselves. After spending a little time like that, I came to understand it well. 'What could be as simple as waiting? There are already so many difficult things in this world…’”

“서울에서 사회운동하면서 정말 너무 바쁘게 살았었어요. 그러다가 지쳐서 느린 사회를 체험한다고, 안식년을 맞아 인도에 갔어요. 마치 한국의 70년대 같지 않을까하고 기대하며 그곳에 갔죠. 가보니까 한 두시간 기다리는 건 일도 아닌 거예요. 한번은 은행에 가서 4시간을 기다리고 있는데, 누가 새치기를 하는 거예요. 그래서 나도 욱해서 지금 바로 일 처리해야한다고 말하니까 은행원이 ‘Wait, wait, just wait. It’s simple!’ 이라고 하는 거예요. 그 경험을 인도의 친구 가족한테 말하니까 그 사람들 또 하는 말이 ‘오늘 못 하면, 내일 하면 되고, 내일 못 하면 모레 하면 되고, 금년에 못 하면 내년에 하면 되고, 이 생에 못 하면 다음 생에 하면 되고’ 라는 하는 거예요. 그 점이 참 인상 깊었어요. 우리는 보통 ‘해야돼. 해야돼’ 하지만, 그 사람들은 ‘지금 안 해도 돼. 조금 늦어도 괜찮아’ 하는 말로 마음을 보듬어 주고 있었죠. 조금 지나고보니 잘 알겠더라고요. ‘기다리는 것만큼 단순한게 어디있어? 이 세상에 어려운 게 얼마나 많은데…’ 하고요.”

Hello Cassandra. I cannot begin to tell you how much your books have made an impact on my life and it's all thanks to you:) anyway, I just finished reading the first 50 pages of Lord of Shadows (which was amazing! I cannot wait any longer) and I got very curious when Julian went to the attic with Diana and sort of started to question how Arthur's obsession with mythology could help his madness, and I was wondering will he somehow help with anything in the future because of his what he reads.:)(:

Arthur is an interesting character — he’s very smart, and he knows a great deal, but what the Fair Folk did to him “broke” his mind the way you might snap someone’s spine. It’s like a spell that keeps him from thinking properly. Arthur does a lot that’s unexpected in Lord of Shadows, and I think shows another side of himself: I believe his obsession with mythology predates his experience in Faerie, but I think it’s something he buries himself in because Greek and Roman mythology is about capricious gods who play with mortals the way faeries play with the fates of humans — which Arthur knows a lot about.

Okay, the cute small story about this photo is actually really funny. So my friend and I heard that Jay park, Loco, and DJ Pumpkin were coming to Cleveland for the Cavs game and since we live (relatively close) to Cleveland we wanted to hang out and try to run into them.

Now the first day we didn’t see them but we still had a fun time together at a fan fair and seeing a lot of over very very attractive Asians walking around.

A day passes and neither of us go out because we didn’t have time and we thought they had left. But the following day was THE DAY.

We were walking around and we happen to find the hotel they were staying at (don’t ask how it was weird) so we walked around for a few hours and then we sat down to rest. Then after waiting for a little I see a yellow beanie…. and I thought… Loco wears a yellow beanie….

My friend and I didn’t want know to do or want to say so we walked past them and sat “closer” to them. About 3 feet away from them really. They went back inside and we thought they were probably waiting for Jay. And this was a once in a life time chance so we waited for them to come back out. About 5 minutes later Jay and Loco come back out and went to a car that was beside us. Without even thinking I got up and said “Jay Park can I please have a hug” He was like of course! While hugging him I said “ I would ask for a picture but I know you probably wouldn’t want that ” and he said that a picture was no problem! His body guard tried to stop it but Jay said it was fine.

While my friend was getting hugged by Jay I called out for Loco before he got in the van. Now, I don’t know if he just didn’t hear me or didn’t understand me but his reaction was the sweet more purest thing ever and he gave me a hug also.

After the hugs and pictures my friend and I said bye and thank you and went on our way. Jay told us to have a good rest of our day and Trust me we did ;)

Ps.
DJ pumpkin was already in the van and his head is poked out in the back xD

We saw Jay again the next day but we didn’t say anything because we didn’t want to disturb him (and he was also with a girl)
