nursery-lighting

Imagine Emily being so excited to have a baby. She’s going to be a mother. They’ve decorated a nursery, light pinks and pretty floral designs, something elegant and beautiful. Richard sits with her at night, hand over her stomach as the baby kicks, and everything seems perfect.

Imagine Emily biting her tongue when Richard suggests naming the baby “Lorelai.” He wants to name their baby after his mother, the same woman who has openly ridiculed Emily since they first met. Her mother-in-law HATES her, but she still agrees because she knows it will make Richard happy. They’ll name the baby “Lorelai.”

Imagine Emily in tears late at night because her daughter hates her. They fight at every interaction, and she can’t help but blame herself. She must have done something wrong to merit this level of hatred. And she has to ask herself why every “Lorelai” she knows seems to hate her.

Imagine Emily absolutely horrified when she learns that her granddaughter is named Lorelai. Imagine her doing everything she can to make sure that at least ONE Lorelai doesn’t despise her. Imagine her decorating a bedroom in their house so that her granddaughter will feel at home. Imagine her serving pudding for dessert because she thinks it’ll make her happy. Imagine Emily, who has spent entire decades of her life being hated, trying so hard to make sure that at least one person likes her.

Then ask yourself if she’s still overbearing and manipulative, or if she’s just desperate for one person in her family to like her.

No Son of Theirs- part 6

Fandom: Harry Potter (Marauders)

Word count: 1929

Characters: Sirius x reader, Remus, Dumbledore, baby Harry

Warnings: Angst. Seeing dead bodies, general sadness.

Summary: The three of you go to fetch Harry..  Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 3.5 (drabble) Part 4 Part 5 Part 7  Part 8

Lily and James’ cottage should have been as familiar as your own home. You had spent enough time there, hadn’t you?

It wasn’t. It was as simple as that. You didn’t know this place anymore.

The only thing you could compare the scene to was a bomb site. Rubble lay strewn haphazardly across the garden, and it was clear where it had come from. There was a hole in James and Lily’s roof, exposing part of Harry’s nursery. The bright lights still glowing from the windows looked out of place- they were a sign of how rushed James and Lily’s last stand had been. The gate and the front door both hung open, an oddly sinister sign. Voldemort had been the last person to stand here, you reflected with a shudder.

But it went deeper than that. Before now, visiting this home had made you feel safe and happy. It was supposed to be a warm place, full of love. But now, the knowledge of what had happened there seemed almost to hang over the place, like a heavy fog on a winter morning. It rendered it unrecognisable. The open front door was a threat, not a welcome.

Darius: “Goodnight my little bean.  Sleep well.”

Darius quietly walked out of the nursery turning off the lights.  Dylan having his own space was a blessing.  It seemed that all Darius’ hard work and planning were paying off.  He could see them staying in this new place for years to come.  Maybe even getting a bigger house someday if they decided to expand their family a little more.  Maybe a baby girl this time?

These three bright nebulae are often featured in telescopic tours of the constellation Sagittariusand the crowded starfields of the central Milky Way.

In fact, 18th century cosmic touristCharles Messier cataloged two of them; M8, the large nebula left of center, and colorful M20 near the bottom of the frame. The third, NGC 6559, is right of M8, separated from the larger nebula by dark dust lanes. All three are stellar nurseries about five thousand light-years or so distant. The expansive M8, over a hundred light-years across, is also known as the Lagoon Nebula. M20’s popular moniker is the Trifid.

In the composite image, narrowband data records ionized hydrogen, oxygen, and sulfur atoms radiating at visible wavelengths. The mapping of colors and range of brightness used to compose this cosmic still life were inspired by Van Gogh’s famous Sunflowers.

Just right of the Trifid one of Messier’s open star clusters,M21, is also included on the telescopic canvas.

These three bright nebulae are often featured in telescopic tours of the constellation Sagittarius and the crowded starfields of the central Milky Way. In fact, 18th century cosmic tourist Charles Messier cataloged two of them; M8, the large nebula left of center, and colorful M20 on the right. The third, NGC 6559, is above M8, separated from the larger nebula by a dark dust lane. All three are stellar nurseries about five thousand light-years or so distant. The expansive M8, over a hundred light-years across, is also known as the Lagoon Nebula. M20’s popular moniker is the Trifid. Glowing hydrogen gas creates the dominant red color of the emission nebulae, with contrasting blue hues, most striking in the Trifid, due to dust reflected starlight. This broad skyscape also includes one of Messier’s open star clusters, M21, just above and right of the Trifid.

Slowly, Yoongi took a seat in the hand built rocking chair he had made just a few hours ago, a content sigh escaping his lips as he looked around the completed nursery. There was a light yellow paint on all four of the walls, a cute little animal bordering the bottoms of those walls, and heartwarming pictures of himself and his wife all hung with care.
