Your Move

The nine times Simon and Baz prank each other and the one time they don’t

Chapter 1 Chapter 2 Chapter 3 Chapter 4 Chapter 5 Chapter 6 Chapter 7 Chapter 8 Chapter 9 Chapter 10

March 23


We’re not supposed to have food in our rooms.  It’s one of Watford’s most ignored rules.  It’s never enforced, and if the rooms themselves have anything to say about it, they tend to keep their mouths shut.

           Nearly everyone I’ve talked to has some sort of stash in their wardrobe or under their bed.  Agatha loves her sherbet lemons, and Penny has a seemingly endless supply of licorice hidden in a locked cupboard.  Only she knows the whereabouts of the key, assuming she’s telling the truth and there is a key at all.  As for me, I keep at least two mint Aero bars tucked away at all times, though it seems no matter where I hide them, Baz always manages to find them.  Further evidence of vampiric senses, if you ask me.

           Baz is more of a bring-food-from-the-dining-hall-into-the-room kind of person than a secret stash person, at least I’ve never seen any evidence of a stash.  I have to wonder what sort of things Baz would keep hidden away.  Rats maybe, still alive to keep their blood warm for when he gets peckish.  But then again, I would probably have noticed something like that.

           I don’t know how he always manages to get food up to the room unnoticed, but I also know he’s on a first-name basis with Cook Pritchard, so maybe he gets special privileges.

           When he appears in the door this evening, tall and silent as ever, he’s holding a steaming mug of tea.  I don’t say anything about it, I know better at this point. He’ll just snap at me.

           He crosses the room and sets the mug down on his nightstand, dropping down to his bed and uncurling to his back.  I raise an eyebrow at him, stretched out like a cat. “What’s with you?” I muse.

           He throws a glance my way.  “What?”

           “I dunno, you’re just being… weird.”

           “Thank you for your opinion, Snow, it’s entirely uncalled for as usual.”

           I roll my eyes.  “Forget I said anything.”

           “I already have.”

           I turn back to my textbook with a scowl.  Serves me right for trying to start casual conversation, though maybe I was a bit rude about it.  At least I can say I tried.

           Baz lays there on his bed for another moment or so, staring up at the ceiling, breathing slowly and deeply like this is the first time he’s properly filled his lungs in weeks.  I glance at my watch.  I’m supposed to meet Penny in the library to study in half an hour, I don’t need to go just yet.

           When Baz stands, he takes a detour on his way to the bathroom to reach over and flip my book out of my hands.

           “What the hell is wrong with you?” I call after him, but he responds simply by slamming the door in my face.

           Classic Baz.  Simple, stupid, but effective.  Like a playground bully.

           I wonder if he gets any actual joy out of it.

           The heat of my anger is already fading, but it still frustrates me that he’s been getting away with this kind of abuse all our lives and nothing I do ever seems to deter him.  It’s like he’s a giant and I’m a pissed-off ant, biting and crawling and trying to hurt him, only to be flicked away by a giant indifferent finger.

           His mug on the bedside table catches my eye, steam still curling off the tea.  He hasn’t taken a sip yet, which is surprising.  Usually he drinks the stuff practically straight out of the kettle, like it isn’t scalding his entire throat on the way down.  Maybe it’s not, maybe that’s some obscure vampire thing. Or maybe he’s just a prat that wants to look tough.

           The lightbulb that goes off in my head is almost audible as I watch the steam dance above the mug.

           Grabbing my wand from the sheets beside me, I stand from my bed as quietly as I can and tiptoe across to Baz’s nightstand, wincing with every creak from the floorboards.  The tea is that perfect smooth colour, brown and soft with cream and sugar.  Sparing a fleeting glance at the bathroom door, I dip my wand down so that the tip just barely breaks the surface of the tea, sending ripples floating away from the intrusion.

           Needs more salt,” I murmur in as soft a voice as I can manage, pushing the crackle of magic from the base of my neck down through my wand arm and into the tea.

           “What was that, Snow?” Baz calls from the other side of the door.  There’s a sudden splash of the sink.

           “I didn’t say anything, twat,” I call back, carefully bringing my wand over my mouth and letting the stream of droplets fall onto my tongue.  It’s flowers and cream and… salt.  Definitely salt.

           I smirk as I return to my bed.  Mission accomplished.

           When Baz re-emerges, I pull my textbook closer so he can’t knock it away again.  I try to look appropriately engrossed.  He doesn’t pause at the door, just goes straight back to his bed, and though I can’t see his face in my periphery, it seems as though he doesn’t suspect anything.

           Needs more salt isn’t a proper spell, per say.  More of a charm.  Penny says that spells occur when the words play the biggest role.  They are usually well-known sayings or lyrics, things that carry a little bit of their own magic, which makes them the easiest for beginning mages to master.  Charms are different, harder to control.  The power of a charm doesn’t lie in the words but in the intent.  The magic comes entirely from the mage.  Often charms come out as accidents, when something is said with so much feeling that magic simply slips in.

           Penny is quite good at charms, at putting magic into whichever words she chooses.  She insists that anything can be a charm with enough magic.

           As Baz reaches for his tea, I can’t help but watch.

           I sure hope Penny is right.

           Baz raises the mug to his lips and takes the first sip.

           His features freeze like he isn’t quite sure how to arrange them.

           After a beat he lowers the cup and stares at it like it’s a puzzle, his brow beginning to furrow.

           He takes another thoughtful sip, and this time the tiny curl of his lip betrays a hint of disgust.

           I make sure to be staring back down at my book when he turns his gaze on me.  I feel it burn into the top of my head, and the burn spreads to my cheeks as I try not to crack.

           I can still feel his eyes on me as he takes a long, pointed drink from the mug.


           I glance back at my watch.  It’s still too early, but Penny will probably be in the library already, and I don’t know how long I can handle Baz’s stare.

           I close my book and stuff it in my bag, wearing what I hope is a neutral expression and not a beet-red blush.  I stand from my bed and slip into my shoes. I see him take another sip.  When I look at him, he’s still watching me, and his face is surprisingly clear for someone drinking salted tea out of spite.

           I’m not fully sure which one of us is the winner here.

           I’m halfway out the door when I decide to break the tension.

           “April Fool’s,” I state like it’s a simple good-bye before I shut the door.

           I’m two stairs down as he yells “IT’S NOT EVEN FUCKING APRIL YOU TWAT!”

why you bring the types on your vacation
  • ESFP: you're not bringing them. why would you think you're bringing the ESFP with you? THEY are bringing YOU, and they will drag you along kicking and screaming to make the absolute most of the adventure.
  • ISFP: they will make sure you get the Real Experience of wherever it is you're going. the fabulous travel photos are just a nice bonus
  • INFP: they've been talking about going to this place for months and you felt bad about not giving them the opportunity
  • ENFP: literally everything was their idea. technically they forgot all about it, so it looks like it was your idea, but you know who the real mastermind is
  • ENTP: they have the excitement of a five year old and the random cultural trivia of a literal encyclopedia. why would you not bring them. you may need to remind yourself of this frequently when their myriad of ideas starts to threaten your budget, but still
  • INTP: somehow they know everything about this kind of trip?? when did they have time or reason to figure all of that out??? either way, you'd better not risk leaving them behind. they'll either get you out of some very weird scenarios or just provide you with unique 2 AM conversation
  • ISTP: they're down for anything as long as your idea isn't colossally stupid, and they'll help you recognize all the logical plan Bs when things go wrong. they just have all the apparent chill that you do not
  • ESTP: for the same reason there's always a normal person on Doctor Who. every adventure needs an audience conduit to remind you not to take any of it for granted and convince you to do the crazy things you can only do right here and right now
  • ESTJ: your bed is comfortable and someone has to get you out of it in the morning. come on, you said you had all these plans, are you actually planning on doing them or what
  • ISTJ: who do you think is going to remember your flight number? the time zone? that bar you wanted to check out? you??? lol yeah right. I mean you COULD just take good notes but the ISTJ will probably have better sarcastic commentary than your phone
  • ISFJ: because not only are they just a ray of sunshine, but also because you know that six months from now, you'll get a meme in your inbox that's a reference to a completely random inside joke from the trip, and this will probably continue indefinitely
  • ESFJ: they come armed with conversation starters, ice breaker games, photo scavenger hunts, week long challenges, and probably a significant list of sights to see both on the road and at your destination. it just makes sense to befriend the embodiment of the pinterest board you didn't know you needed
  • ENFJ: cross cultural communication - they will make it impossible not to at least try and understand the place where you're going, even if it's just across town. there will probably be many times you'll be glad they were there to save you from saying something stupid to a local
  • INFJ: for the free therapy, what did you expect this to say? you won't actually know how you're doing until you're sitting in the car with them ranting about things you just discovered you need to rant about. it's the best way to ensure that the trip actually does you some good
  • INTJ: they'll get you to see all your experiences from a completely unexpected perspective, and hopefully inspire you to do your research. at least, you can bet THEY are hoping you do more research next time. oh my gosh are they the only one around here that came prepared
  • ENTJ: they will tell fabulously exaggerated stories of your adventure after the fact. they just get more dramatic with every retelling and it's great. also I sure hope you didn't want to plan the entire trip cause guess what, you don't have to anymore

The Little Mermaid had just come out, and it was a really good movie and everybody was really excited about it. I remember I loved it too, but it just seemed like its own thing. We didn’t realize that we were part of something that was…an era of Disney films, because nobody had seen Beauty and the Beast yet. But when I saw [Beauty and the Beast], I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, this is an incredible movie. I’m part of something really big here and I hope ours is really good too (laughing).’ And of course, when I saw ours, I was like ‘Oh, wow, they are really doing something right here!’”

Hi there ! I recently discovered your Voltron Family AU and I just love it to death *^* Everything is just so cute and fluffly, and it's just such an adorable family ! You even make me ship Sheith X) I wanted to know a few things. First, did any of the kids had some strange fear/habits (I know that's Pidge had oral fixation by reading some of the old posts). And second, how did the kids's parents died ? Also I hope I have a good english, I'm still learning... Have a good day ^w^

Hello! Oh gosh I’m thrilled to know you love the Voltron Family AU! :D YES GOOD. THE GOAL IS TO MAKE PEOPLE SHIP SHEITH. /snickers/

The kids had fears, yes.

Hunk had his fear of fire because of what happened to his parents. It was the start of Keith telling Hunk bedtime stories. :’)

Lance would probably say he’s fearless, however at such a young age, he fears death especially when he’d witnessed Daddy Keith “almost” die in front of him. (a fave of mine tbh!)

And for how the kids’ biological parents die, I have answered that here! :D

Also! Don’t worry! Your English is fine :)

todays video has me shook!! love evak ❤️ my only issue goes back to isak and sana's time on the bench. when we see isak tell sana its her responsibility and not all norwegians are bad, if the situation was reversed (esp after we just saw what isak went thru) i wish hed have responded differently. idk i just hope they address that before skam ends

This video was everything and oh my gosh this was such a good point!

the bench does remind us of that conversation with Sana and Isak did tell her that he understands what it is like getting hate as a gay youth and I think Sana argued that he couldn’t because people can’t see he is different 

but this clip showed just how much Isak does understand and that when he told Sana that speech about hate and not looking for it, he wasn’t just telling sana, it’s something he is clearly struggling with himself

because when he does get hate….well we see just how hard it is for him and how it makes him want to fight

my angels :((

I think it reminds us that despite differences Isak and Sana can truly relate with each other and although the two are different….hate isn’t. hate is hate and Isak and Sana are both struggling with it

I am glad they have each other to work through it together.

I feel like this clip shows that Isak isn’t a big wise guy now who has all of this figured out like he did in that clip, but that he is also still learning and struggling with the fact that there are people out here in this world who hate on his love, just like there are people who hate on Sana’s faith :( 

Do You Know?

summary: “Do you know Ryan Ross?” “Nope. No idea, sorry.”

word count: 546

warnings: none

author’s note: this is my first attempt with any form of fic, really. not sure how good it is, but i tried so


“‘Do you know who Ryan Ross is?’” Someone in the chat asks. Brendon laughs because obviously they haven’t been here long if they think that Brendon’s going to answer a question about Ryan Ross seriously. “Nope. No idea, sorry.” He quickly moves on, wanting to carry on with his Periscope with as little Ryan as possible.

I usually can tell its your style by the facial expressions and body gestures. Your good at showing the characters mood and feeling. Pretty much the opposite of how I am at speaking.

Really? Oh gosh I’ve been trying to work on that since I feel like my expressions are a little too stale o-o

Well I still hope to improve it but gosh thank you so much for the ask!!!

What is my ‘art trademark’?

Hello, Tiiii! I hope it looks ok now! <3 Haha


(^^ That’s my initial reaction <3 Now it’s calmed down a bit to a pure <3 <3 <3  <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 and don’t you worry /pats/ it’s perfect no matter what. But the message AHHHHHH!!!!!  <3 <3 <3 <3 I’ll do it! (’u’)b )

since my school’s got keystone testing rn and I don’t have to take any I’ve got like two and a half hours of my first block class, which is TV Studio, but since we’re done running announcements for the rest of year we pretty much have that whole time to just chill lol

so anyways me and two other friends were screwing around on youtube (as one does) and one of them at one point showed us this pretty cool montage-y edit/AMV kind of thing of the movie Real Steel (it’s that one with the boxing robots?? anyways) I got rlly like,,, , emotional,, ,,????? ? ??? I haven’t even seen Real Steel what the heck. Like the editing was pretty good already but also the robots though,,, , and I remember seeing trailers for it but since it came out in 2011 I was probably about 11 years old and wasn’t allowed to watch it but dang now I really need to watch it omg

Oh my gosh..its..2 am in the morning…kill me. @_@ But here is another FFXIV fan-art character. It belongs to a good friend of mine in-game. I hope she’s likes it. xD It’s a gift.

Disclaimer:  My friend’s character belongs to her and the artwork belongs to me. I do not own Final Fantasy XIV.

Ive been following you for a good 3+ years now and i remember scrolling thru your blog for the first time thinking "why the hell doesnt this guy have more notes??" since then youve continued to improve and inspire me and its amazing to see you finally getting the attention your art is worth! Still i hope you dont feel too pressured, just go at your own pace and dont forget to rest and take care of yourself 🌸

oh my gosh ;;;; <3 <3 <3 its so wild to me that youve been around so long. i’ll definitely be back to posting weird gay shit soon (though, everything i draw is kinda weird and gay. no matter what exactly it is), ive just been frustrated with digital art and thats why im working with oil now. but i feel like ive set an expectation now, when in actuality im still very inexperienced and lost and afraid and using my tears as paint thinner
