neglected things

uh my hand slipped while I was yelling about this

Dear parents who wonder why their kids never talk to them...

Think about what you were saying when they used to talk to you. Think about your choice of words and tone. Think about why they tried to come to you and why they don’t anymore. When you shut them out, belittle them, and blame them for all of their problems, you will lose them. And that will be permanent.

Saeyoung and MC visited her parents’ house to find her mom’s scrapbook filled with her baby photos and all that cute embarrassing stuff. 

Saeyoung demanded (with the help of her mom, of course) that mc need to tell every story lies behind each of them ❤

What are your opinions on John winchester... just my curiosity spiking?

Oh boy, that one. 

I think he was a bad, neglectful parent. But I don’t agree with the pretty wide-spread characterization of him as a total demonic, drunk asshole who hates his kids’ guts and beats them up. I don’t think John actually beat them up – not on a regular basis, at least? I could maybe see arguments getting heated and violent, but not so much of a constant smackdown for every small mistake. He might have put them down verbally, if the Impala comment to Dean in the end of s1 was anything to go by… we all know Dean would never let Baby get rust or anything :(

I think he, kinda, destroyed them emotionally and totally didn’t provide enough support. He loved Sam and Dean, I’m pretty sure – but love alone’s not enough. He was a traumatized, scared man who wasn’t in the place to raise kids. I know it turned out that this childhood was the only way Sam and Dean could save the world. If they were raised happy and safe without any training and only ever becoming close with each other in their formative years, I doubt they could foil Lucifer’s plans that were thousands of years in the making in Swan Song. But John had no way of knowing that, so, that’s no excuse!

Also, that face that Dean makes in the Dark Side of the Moon when talking about John…

Yeah, that one. Poor guy. From the looks of it, John would never let them be kids, especially not Dean with his parentification burden. I could maybe understand wanting your kids to be ready if you know monsters are coming for them. But, damn, he could’ve stayed with them. Teach them how to shoot a gun if you really gotta, but you can also play catch with them and read them bedtime stories, yanno. 

eleven little self care tips for students
  1. Get enough sleep. Your brain needs it. Set yourself a ‘bed time’ and fall into the routine of going to bed and waking up at the same times each day.
  2. Drink water and lots of it. Aim for 2 litres a day. This one’s easy, you can do it. Ditch the juices and carbonated beverages, just add a slice of lemon to your water if you feel like something fancy.
  3. Allow yourself to switch off. Don’t be afraid to read books that have nothing to do with your studies. Go to the cinema. Work out. Take your mind away from your workload.
  4. Take care of your skin. Wash your face every morning and night. Moisturise after every shower and bath. Don’t go to bed with your make-up on, no matter how tired you are.
  5. Talk to your friends and family about something other than school. Don’t let your studies detach you from the things going on around you.
  6. Work out. Even just once a week, or whenever you can. Go for a walk or a run, maybe just for 15 minutes. Follow along with a YouTube exercise video from the comfort of your own home or try out some yoga moves.
  7. Make time for your hobbies. Studying is your full time job, but there’s plenty of hours left in the day. Don’t neglect the things you love.
  8. Cook. Sometimes all we have time for is microwave noodles, but don’t fall into the habit of relying on the basics. You’ll feel the difference.
  9. Don’t forget to laugh. Watch a hilarious film. See a comedian at a local venue. Watch funny videos on YouTube. Reminisce with friends. It’ll do you good.
  10. Ditch the caffeine. Don’t rely on Starbucks. It’s delicious but you don’t need it. Save up all the money you’d usually spend on coffee and treat yourself to something instead.
  11. Make your bed every morning. You’ll be grateful at the end of a long day when you can get into a cosy bed that doesn’t look like you just rolled out of it.

i wanna start off by telling you how much i adore your yuuri characterization in umfb! you've written him and your fic so well that i sometimes forget that it all exists non-canonically. anyways now that it's canon that yuuri and viktor are soulmates, what soulmate au do you think would maybe fit well in the umfb universe?

ooooh, this is a really interesting question! Let me think, soulmate AUs that would fit well into Rivals…

Au where you see in black and white until you fall in love with your soulmate and then you start to see in colour:

Yuuri sees in colour from the moment he first sees Viktor skate but then the first meeting happens and he rejects the idea that Viktor is his soulmate and ignores it. Viktor starts seeing in colour much later but since no-one knows Yuuri can also see in colour he thinks that Yuuri still sees in black and white and their bond will forever remain unrequited

Au where you have timers on your wrist counting down until the moment you meet your soulmate:

Because of Viktor’s whole ‘neglecting life and love’ thing he sort of forgets about his timer and ignores it so doesn’t notice when it goes off. Yuuri on the other hand is convinced his soulmate is Viktor and is ecstatic that he gets to go and meet him. But when they meet for the first time he is heartbroken that not only was his soulmate so cruel but he didn’t even acknowledge they were soulmates. Viktor only notices his timer has stopped later that day and assumes his soulmate will come forward but no-one ever does and eventually he starts to lose hope that they ever will. Yuuri on the other hand rejects Viktor as his soulmate and never mentions his timer again. Viktor has no idea that Yuuri is his soulmate but after the revelation of how they met in chapter 12 he realises the timing of their first meeting was right for the timers to theoretically match up and he starts to hope…

Au where the first words your soulmate ever says to you appears on your body on your 18th birthday

Viktor gets ‘I’m going to skate like you someday’ when he turns 18 (chapter 3ish) and is very excited to meet his soulmate as he doesn’t remember the first encounter. Yuuri gets ‘ You might need to drop some weight before you can think about being a skater свинка ‘ and it’s such a horrible reminder of what happened since he already hates Viktor at this point that he covers it up and pretends it doesn’t exist because he refuses to accept that the man he has sworn to hate is his soulmate. Since Viktor doesn’t remember their actual first meeting but remembers what he thinks is their first meeting he “knows” that Yuuri isn’t his soulmate because the words on his skin don’t match up to what Yuuri said to him. And so he hides his words and keeps meeting with Yuuri but still has to live with the knowledge that somewhere out there, there’s a person who is perfect for Yuuri in every way and it isn’t him.

Au where any bruises/cuts on your soulmate’s body appear on your own in a specific colour

After their first night together Yuuri wakes up with bright pink scratches down his back and Viktor has loads of bright blue hickeys and a blue bitemark on his collarbone. This leads to a very awkward and revealing morning after.  

Au where the name of the love of your life appears on one wrist and your worst enemy appears on the other

Yuuri gets Viktor’s name for both

Two signs of the same coin

Aries and Scorpio: the flamethrower and the match

Both are powerful, strong-willed, and passionate.  Where Aries is upfront and straightforward, Scorpio is plotting and reserved.  Both signs make excellent leaders, and their Mars influence gives them a fiery edge.  Aries is a bit more overt compared to the private and mysterious Scorpio, but they are equally capable of accomplishing their goals, and will go after them with intense diligence.  They are also both quick to anger and jealousy, although their rage is expressed very differently.

Taurus and Libra: the bloom and the bud

Both are romantic, charming, and easygoing.  Where Taurus is calm and steady, Libra is excitable and fluid.  Taurus and Libra both know what they want, but Libra is more concerned with pleasing others than Taurus, and is therefore much less likely to express what they want if they think it could be seen as taboo.  However, Libra and Taurus share the Venusian fondness for beauty and peace, and prefer to live with contentment rather than large moments of joy and of despair.

Gemini and Virgo: the novel and the encyclopedia

Both are intellectual, analytical, and enchanting.  Where Gemini is chatty and all over the place, Virgo is silent and concentrated.  Virgo is essentially a more centered and focused version of Gemini.  Their Mercurial influence leaves them both with a strong desire to understand everything that goes on around them. Gemini is undoubtedly more skilled in abstract thought, but this can leave them quite a bit “up in the air,” compared to the grounded Virgo.

Cancer and Leo: the moon and the sun

Both are loving, faithful, and cautious.  Where Cancer is soft and introspective, Leo is loud and out in the world.  Even when their roles are reversed, and Cancer is the outgoing one and Leo the shy one, Cancer remains more inwardly focused and concerned with their close family and friends, and Leo is still concerned with what everyone thinks of them, regardless of how important they are in Leo’s life.  Easily two of the most self-centered signs on the wheel, they also prefer to be on the safe side of things, and are unbelievably loyal.

Sagittarius and Pisces: the genie and the wishing well

Both are generous, joyful, and hot-headed.  Where Sagittarius is adventurous and interested in the outside world, Pisces is imaginative and interested in the inner world.  They are both unfailingly giving thanks to Jupiter, but they differ in that Sagittarius gives their all and expects it in return, in contrast to Pisces, who will give everything they own without believing they’re owed anything else.  Neither is skilled with balance, as Sagittarius spreads themselves too thin in numerous subjects, and Pisces devotes themselves to one thing, therefore neglecting others.

Capricorn and Aquarius: the sage and the priest

Both are wise, private, and detached.  Where Capricorn is experienced and clever, Aquarius is enlightened and philosophical.  One goes to Capricorn when they need help with a problem that comes from outside, and to Aquarius when they need help with a problem that comes from inside.  Both signs are prone to becoming dogmatic, and their Saturnian influence can make them feel separated from the rest of the world, but they share a profound concern for the wellbeing of others, and only ever do what they feel they can justify.
