the loss of one’s footing
The first time he does it, it’s so sudden and unexpected that it’s a few moments before they both realize that he’s never actually done it before.
Penelope’s never been the sort of person that one puts one’s hands on. She radiates propriety, correctness. Her posture is exquisite, she walks with the perfect execution of heel-to-toe, without the slightest hint of a teeter or a wobble. She makes wearing the platform stilettos that make up six inches of her height look effortless.
The $poiler site is posting about 7B rewrites and they are all freaking out about it. Apparently AMC is changing the script for most of the episodes in the back half. Sounds like this has never been done before. I think this might have been there way of making sure whatever is coming isn't spoiled. This may very well be all about Beth's storyline returning! BTW I became TD over the summer of last year and have been a pesky anon asking questions but I finally made an account to support you guys!
Thanks for the info., love! I discussed my thoughts here (X). Welcome to Team Delusional officially, and thank you for all of your continued support!
// So, I just got invited to go to a karaoke night with several voice friends of mine, as well as Cristina Vee, who you guys know is Riven’s voice actress. The problem is that Riven-Mun is super, super poor right now and has no real funds to do anything like that right now.
Those of you following me might remember that last month I only just barely managed to pay my rent, and have been surviving on ramen noodles and the kindness of my roomies that share food. In fact, I still technically owe my brother 60 dollars for utilities.
However, this karaoke thing is something I really want to go to. It’s something I’ve never done before, one, and two, I get to hang out with lots of my voice friends and network and stuff, as well as hang out with someone I really look up to for a number of reasons.
So that’s why I’m turning to you guys, my followers. I need a few dollars to pay for food, parking, and maybe a drink or two, and I’m willing to put all of my skills to work doing something for you to help you out in exchange for a little cash.
Need a paper proof-read? I’ll do it for you. I’ll put my English degree to use for you and give you suggestions and feedback.
Need help crafting an essay or project? I’ll give you pointers as well and help give you direction based on your thoughts.
Want help improving your writing? Let me put my creative writing degree to work to help you find skills you never knew you had.
Want me to draw you derpy stick comics? I’ll draw you derpy stick comics.
See something not on this list? Send me an ask or message and we’ll work something out!
Point is, I really want to go to this, and I’m willing to work to get the cash for it. Prices negotiable, of course. So, let me work for you so I can afford to sing poorly and hang out with some really cool people!
Soooo this weekend I did a bunch of things I’ve either never done before or haven’t been able to do in years. I went on a spontaneous tour at my old school because they’re building a new floor & robotics lab (felt super cool wearing a hard hat). And I went out to eat with Tom and didn’t restrict my food out of fear of getting sick!! I haven’t been to a restaurant without my parents in…maybe 3 years? In those 3 years, I went to restaurants only when absolutely necessary. I also went to some stores, went out to dinner w/ my parents and Tom & went on some walks. Idk where this progress is coming from because last week I was doing so badly! But I’m thankful that I’ve been able to take these steps.
It’s decided that the Eighth Years should do a Secret Santa gift exchange to continue the newfound effort towards House Unity that was started at the beginning of the new term.
So of course, because Harry can’t catch a break, he managed to draw Draco Malfoy as his person.
He’s stressed AF and wracking his brain to think of something that Malfoy would even want, something he won’t spit on.
Harry gets annoyed when Malfoy plays it off like it’s going to be super easy to get his person a gift, which makes Harry even more Determined™
Except, secretly Draco is also stressed AF because holy shit everything he thinks of is stupid, what can he possibly get the Boy Who Lived??? Fuck, fuck!
Draco trails through Hogsmeade looking at Quidditch supplies, expensive leather-bound journals, and fine bottles of goblin wine before deciding that all of those gifts wouldn’t matter to Potter — with the exception of Quidditch, obviously.
But he’s certain that gifting Potter something Quidditch-related won’t have enough of an impact.
He wanted to get a gift that meant something, something to thank Potter for saving his life.
Harry nearly gave up as the day to exchange their presents drew nearer, but then he found Malfoy’s wand in the bottom of his trunk.
He knew it was the perfect gift.
After a few false starts, Draco finally figured out something clever to gift to Potter, something that no other Secret Santa would have thought of.
He was proud of himself for figuring out the puzzle, and he’s actually eager to see Potter’s face when he opened Draco’s gift.
When the time finally came to exchange gifts in a circle around the Eighth Year common room, they each went last to give their gifts.
When it’s clear that they had presents for each other, they both nod to leave the room.
Malfoy insisted that Harry open his first.
Harry fully expected something over the top, expensive, and uselessly ridiculous.
But his breath caught when he opened the leather-bound text, engraved with a family crest on the cover with the name Potter emblazoned on a scroll in the center.
As he flipped through the pages Malfoy explained that he tracked down a complete family history of the Potters for Harry.
And holy shit, Malfoy’s present made Harry’s heart pound in his chest while his throat went all tight and dry???
Harry got choked up over his gift as the reality of it sank in. He carefully ran his fingers over the engraving while Malfoy shifted his weight from foot to foot nervously, blurting out facts about the gift that Harry only paid half of his attention to.
Harry wiped at his eyes roughly, a little embarrassed, but Malfoy gave him such an important gift.
He took a breath and held out his own gift for Malfoy.
“I thought it was about time you had this back. It served me well, so, er, thanks.”
Draco didn’t even speak for a full minute, his eyes were just locked on his wand in Harry’s outstretched hand.
Harry could see his hand shaking at his side.
When Harry finally handed Draco the wand, he hugged Harry really tightly and whispered thank you.
Draco kissed Harry’s cheek as he pulled away, startling Harry.
His lips felt so soft and warm against Harry’s skin.
They stared at each other until Harry slowly, carefully pulled Draco back to him, and lightly kissed his cheek in return.
They smiled tentatively at each other, each clutching their gifts, as they reached for each other’s hand.
Absolutely no one was surprised when they walked back into the common room holding hands.
