my muse is manically laughing at this

anonymous asked:

How do you read so many books in one year? Can you tell us a bit about yourself? What you do for a living, whether you write, what your favourite books or favourite kinds of books are, who some of your favourite authors are, and anything else you'd like to share.

I answered your questions after the read-more. This ask kind of got away with me.

A spouting a huge amount of pick up lines to friends, B getting jealous and confronting A which kind just calls for them making out and skipping/being late for class

There’s the slam of their shared dorm door, a stomping of footsteps. Derek calmly continues in his note making, pretends he hasn’t stayed up past one just to welcome Stiles home from his night out. 

“Are you a magician, because when I look at you everyone else just disappears.”

Derek’s pen drops from his mouth, his heart, stupidly, begins to race, and he jerks his head up to stare at Stiles. 

Stiles waves a hand at him, bodily rolls his eyes as he tosses his wallet on the desk, “See! It works on you! You’re surprised; you’re looking at me; you now know I exist!”

Derek swallows, reigns in his momentary and obviously ridiculous excitement. 

“What,” he manages flatly.

If Dean and Cas ever kiss

I will print out screenshots and put them everywhere

on t shirts

as wallpaper in my room

as bedspread

I’d have it put on a fricken poster

I’d run out into the streets laughing and crying manically while playing the scene on repeat

nothing will faze me

I’ll be almost in a state of Nirvana

I’ll sing cheesy love songs to myself for the rest of my life

I’ll flap my hands and jump up and down and giggle

I’ll do weird stuff, man
