turn off the lights // panic! at the disco

I’m? So angry on @steveaoki and his teams’ account. Like. They have been working their butts off for this single. Steve has been mentioning it as much as he can, and his team has been using it as much as possible. So the fact that The Late Late Show is trying to use Louis’ name to promote the single (meanwhile his fans have done more than his team has for this single) is so gross. 

I want a hashtag with Louis and Steve TOGETHER, if not one for Steve alone if you’re going to make the host make one without Steve. The false idea that Louis’ fanbase is just here to blindly promote whatever he does needs to be squashed. We have continued to support this song and promotion cycle because Steve and his team have made us feel like we are being recognized and loved for the effort we put forward. 

The fact that The Late Late Show has been naive enough to think that it has been a blind following is insulting to us as fans and Steve and his team as people. I’m so angry right now.

anyway guy’s loud and obvious about loving kakashi. he’s the epitome of that “yes we know. you love kakashi” meme. literally never shuts up about how great and handsome and smart kakashi is. talks about how every second spent with kakashi is a gift.

kakashi is just someone who likes to keep his business to himself and isn’t really into performative relationship stuff. he watches guy and just kinda smiles to himself and is so utterly smitten. shows his love through little gestures like bringing home food for guy or some item that he knows he needed. privately very affectionate.

and they both understand the difference in their personalities and love the balance that they have!!!!

Enjoy! 

“Hey look your girlfriend is coming over!” Justin joked at Montgomery.

“What girlfriend?” Montgomery said while turning around when he saw you coming over to the table he and his friends were sitting at.

“Hey guys! Do you mind if I eat my lunch here? Jess and Sheri have cheer practice and sitting alone is a little boring.”

“Of course we don’t mind, I think Montgomery would even really really love you would sit here!” Zach says to you while you were sitting down next to Montgomery.

“Really Zach, again with the stupid jokes? You guys have been making these jokes for months. It’s starting to get boring.” You smile at Justin and Zach.

“What jokes? We’re just stating the facts about you guys obviously crushing on each other, if you guys can’t do it yourself let us help a little.” You felt that your cheeks were starting to burn. Blushing came very easy with you. Justin and Zach have been playing matchmaker for months, always making sure there was a spot left next to Montgomery, accidently leaving the two of you alone at a party, making jokes.

“It seems like sitting alone was in fact a better idea. See you later guys!” You say while picking up your stuff, and walking out the cafeteria.

“Don’t run away from the loveee!” You hear Justin shout after you with a stupid voice it made you laugh. You had to admit the guys were pretty funny.

Fast forward to Friday night.

It was the end of the week and Bryce threw a party, again.  When you arrived you decided to join Jessica and Sheri, your two best friends. You were playing drinking games an having a fun talk with them when you got a text from Justin that he needed water and he was throwing up in the bathroom. It took you a while since you understood his message, 1 because you were drunk, 2 Justin was drunk too.  You ran upstairs and when you entered you found an empty bathroom, after you a drunk Montgomery running in, also with a water bottle. You were stood up. Justin knew Bryce’s house really good so he knew he could lock the two of you up from the outside and so he did.

“Really Justin?” You shouted while kicking the door.

“Let me out!”

Suddenly Montgomery picked you by your waist.

“Calm down y/n, you really hate me so much?” he said while turning you around his face so close you could smell the alcohol coming from his breath.

“No but I’m done with their stupid jokes.”

“Let’s just wait here until he unlocks the door, we can’t do much more.” Montgomery said while sitting down on the bathroom floor so you did the same. After talking for hours, you guessed,  Montgomery was getting closer and closer. Suddenly his hand was caressing your upper leg, your drunk mind  processed a little slower but when you looked up from his hand to his face Montgomery was leaning in to kiss you. Suddenly you heard the door unlock.

“Are you guys making out???” Justin asked while he put his head through the door opening.

“Nope!” You said while jumping up and running out of the bathroom. You really needed some fresh air right now, and another drink of course. You walked to the table with drinks when Sheri joined you on you left, Jess on your right.

“Where were you? You’ve been away for two hours!” Jess asked.

“Justin locked Montgomery and me in the bathroom, his matchmaking got next level.”

“Aaand did something happened?” Sheri asked with a grin on her face.

“No no no, quit it with the matchmaking. Nothing is happening between me and Montgomery anytime soon!” You said for what you thought was the 100th time.

“Okay calm down, we’ll shut up about it. But you know if you want to hide it better, be a little less defensive.” Sheri winked. You just rolled your eyes at her but in your head you were replaying the scene that just happened. Was he really going to kiss you? After the two of you never talked about it again so you just assumed it was a stupid drunk action nothing more, but you had to admit it kind of flattered you.

Fast forward to Tuesday after your last class.

You were picking the last books out of your locker when suddenly someone decided to join you.

“Hey y/n, heading home?”

“Oh hi Montogery, yes I am, why?”

“I was wondering if you could give me a ride home. I came with Jeff this morning but he already left for a date or something.”

“Ooh Atkins bailed on you for a girl? Must hurt.” You wink at Montgomery.

“Yeah a little, a ride with you could heal it.” He joked while you closed your locker and the two of you started to walk out of school. Suddenly someone tapped your shoulder. It was Kyle, your labpartner from chemistry.

“Hey y/n, sorry for interrupting but I kind of wanted to ask you something.” He stuttered.

“Kind of asking, interesting?” you joke at Kyle. He let out a nervous laugh, he seemed nervous.

“Well so do you want to go on a date with me maybe? Tonight?”

“Okay no, I’m done with this hiding stuff!” You heard a frustrated Montgomery say when he suddenly turns you sideways giving you a deep and passionate kiss. He cupped your face while he caressed your cheek with his thumb, letting go of you very slowly and smiling at you. You were too surprised with his sudden actions to talk.

“Well you see Kyle, there would be a little problem here since y/n is my girl.” Montgomery says while putting his arm around you. Montgomery was a pretty impressive guy so you understood why Kyle ran off without saying another word. You felt a little bad for the boy. Montgomery was known for pushing people against the lockers so Kyle probably thought that was going to happen to him.

“So I’m your girl De la Cruz?” You ask while blushing heavily. You wanted to seem cool but you couldn’t hide the smile forming on your face. Even tho you always fought the jokes you liked him. Montgomery had something special and it made you weak.

“I couldn’t hold myself anymore y/n, I’ve been wanting to do this for so long but I thought you didn’t like me and I –“

You cut Montgomery of by kissing him again.

“Calm down Monty, I’m your girl.”  You say while putting his arm back around you.

Let me know what you think! Thanks for reading! xxx

Chronologically follows “I’m Yours.”


Chat bounded across rooftops, eager for his evening visit with his girlfriend. Girlfriend! He had a girlfriend. Secret, girlfriend, of course, but still awesome.

He’d been required to attend a Gabriel vision meeting that took all morning, followed by back-to-back shoots this afternoon. But the knowledge that Mari and her family would be waiting for him to show up for retro video game night was enough to help him power through. As luck had it, he’d been released early, and had wasted no time locking himself in his room and escaping his father’s gilded cage.

He timed a leap just right to catch a light-pole to swing his trajectory back up and to the next roof. As he closed in on the T & S Bakery, he slowed down and moved into the shadows. He’d always been careful to keep his visits out of the public eye. At this point, he was in far too deep to stop, and he had no contingency plan if things went wrong. He should probably do something about that, but to be honest, he was much better at planning on the fly. Ladybug was the team’s longer range strategist.

As he dropped to Marinette’s balcony, he was surprised how dark her room was. He peeked in, half expecting to see her taking a cat nap, but she wasn’t there. She hadn’t minded him coming in through her window that one night, in the rain, so it was probably okay. He tapped a few times, so he could say that he had, before lifting the skylight to lower himself into her room.

“Princess?” he said quietly, looking around just to be sure she wasn’t at her desk or anything. There was no response. Her trapdoor was open, and he hesitated at the top of the stairs, listening before descending. He could hear Tom and Sabine, but Marinette was being unusually quiet. A little worried something was wrong, he took the stairs two at a time, something he’d learned to do specifically because it irritated his father.

Full Moon [R.L.]

Character: Remus Lupin
Word Count: 1188
Requested?: Yes/No
Summary: After a particularly bad full moon, Y/n decides it’s time to admit that she knows all about Remus’ little secret, especially since she’s known for years.
Disclaimer: Gif isn’t mine, credit to whoever made it

+ + + + +

You were fed up of them treating you like you were stupid. You were supposed to be one of their best friends, for Merlin’s sake! So why did they feel the need to make up the most outrageous excuses every month, just to cover up the fact they were helping out Remus?

It was frustrating, especially so since you had known about his little secret since you were in third year. Remus was a terrible liar, and if you were honest, James, Sirius and Peter weren’t much better.

You knew they were just trying to cover for their friend, but couldn’t they trust you? Did they really think you valued their friendship that lowly that you’d sell them out for something that Remus couldn’t help?

It annoyed you to no end when they’d lie to your face. You’d been friends for almost 7 years now, and the fact that they still didn’t trust you, even after all this time, really hurt. What hurt the most to you was that Remus didn’t trust you with his secret.

Because whether you wanted to admit it or not, you had a huge crush on the boy, and it really pained you to know that he didn’t trust you not to tell anyone.

You sat in the Gryffindor common room - a place where you often resided - waiting for the four to get back from their… late night endeavours.

From your place on the couch, you could see the full moon sitting brightly in the dark night sky, illuminating the Black Lake below, and making you slightly anxious about when they would be returning.

You stood up and walked closer to the window, leaning on the ledge as you peered out to look across the grounds. Everything was silent and deserted, which seemed strange considering in the daytime the grounds were packed with students.

A slight movement near the trees below caught your eyes as your gaze was instantly drawn to the spot. Four figures finally emerged from the forest, two trying to hold another one up, and the fourth simply tagging along at the back, trying to help but mostly just failing to do so.

You heart clenched. You hated seeing Remus so hurt after a full moon. You hated the scratches and cuts that littered his body after a night of trying to rip himself apart. You wished you could make things better for them.

But they didn’t know that you knew.

Every month you’d pretend that you believed their stupid lies, and you knew they probably thought you were the most gullible person on the planet.

This month, however, you wanted it to stop. You were going to wait until they managed to get back up to the common room, and you were going to confront them.

There was a while to wait, as you had expected, due to them presumably stopping to see Madam Pomfrey, who helped Remus out with his injuries every month.

Then they’d be returning.

You sat back down on the couch, holding a book and flipping the pages every so often, though your eyes were trained on the door.

There was the sound of some muttering, and few bangs - probably Sirius - before the door finally opened.

They didn’t notice you at first, busy trying to get Remus into the room, however when James finally saw you sitting on the couch, simply observing the scene, he slapped Sirius’ shoulder and nodded his head towards you.

“Oh hey, Y/n,” Sirius said, laughing nervously, “What are you still doing up? You should be in bed. Let’s get you in bed.”

He began walking towards you but you held a hand up, making him stop in his tracks, “Not another step, Black.”

James and Peter watched on as they held onto Remus’ beaten body, helping him to stay stood up.

“This isn’t what it looks like,” James said quickly. You raised an eyebrow. “And what does this look like to you? Because to me, it looks like you’re trying to hide the fact that your friend is a bloody werewolf!” You whispered the last word, though you knew it was just you five alone.

“W-What? Pfft, no it’s not, why would you even… say… that…” James trailed off when he saw the look on your face. He sighed, “When did you find out?”

“About October,” You said. “Oh that’s not too bad!” Sirius said with a grin, “We kept it a secret for that long!”

“In third year,” you finished, crossing your arms over your chest.

“Ohh…”

You rolled your eyes and sighed, “That doesn’t matter right now though. Could you please just lay him down on the couch? He’s as pale as anything, and looks like he’s about to pass out.”

James and Peter carefully helped Remus to lay down across the couch you were just sitting on, and looked at you.

“You three look a mess. You’ve clearly had no sleep, and if you want no one to work out why you’re all looking so awful tomorrow, you better get to bed.”

“Hey! I am beautiful all the time! How dare you offend me like this!” Sirius said indignantly with a pout.

James looked hesitantly at Remus’ figure, not wanting to leave just yet and you gave him a smile, “It’s okay. You’ve done enough tonight. Just go and get some sleep, I’ll look after him.”

“Okay… thanks,” the messy haired boy began to head to his dorm, followed by Peter. Sirius gave you a knowing look, winking as he too followed them upstairs, “Don’t snog too much, Y/n, he’s quite worn out already!”

“Shut up, Black!” You grumbled.

When all three boys had finally disappeared, you perched gently on the couch near Remus’ head, as you took in his appearance properly for the first time that night.

His face was completely scratched up, and there was a cut across his lip that looked quite deep. Bruised covered his shoulders, and from what you could see under his ripped up shirt, so was his stomach.

“Oh Remus…” you whispered, stroking a hand through his hair gently whilst the other softly traced the cuts on his face.

You saw the blush forming on his cheeks before he even opened his eyes, but when he did you could see his adoration for you clearly.

“You don’t have to stay here,” he said quietly, in a hoarse voice. You looked into his pretty brown eyes and smiled, “I know I don’t have to. I want to. I want to make sure you’re okay.”

You felt him lean into the hand that cupped his cheek, and gently stroked his jawline with your thumb.

You leant down slowly, waiting for any sign of discomfort, before softly brushing your lips against his. Remus reached up to push your hair away as he held onto you, kissing you properly, pouring all his love into it, as were you.

Suddenly, Remus knew his full moons wouldn’t be as bad anymore, because he knew you’d be there for him afterwards to patch him up and kiss him better. And that’s all he ever wanted.

Imagine Lucas teaching El all sorts of things about space and galaxies and stars. She’s absolutely fascinated and adores learning new things about her world, and it’s an amazing bonding opportunity for the two of them. They pour over science textbooks together after school. Lucas brings his telescope out for all the boys and El to go stargazing on summer evenings. El loves the glow-in-the-dark stars that Lucas has on his bedroom ceiling because it feels like he has his own constellations right within his grasp, so Lucas buys her a few packs of them for her birthday, glow-in-the-dark stars and planets, and all the boys come over to help her design her ceiling with them. On rainy days, when Mike visits El to comfort her through her nervousness about thunderstorms, they lay on the floor of her bedroom and she tells him all the things about space that she’s learned from Lucas and from the books Mike brings her and they pick out made-up constellations (like Eggo waffles) 

Disrespect - Part II

Word Count: 1624

Player: Tyler Seguin (Dallas Stars)

feat. Jamie Benn (Dallas Stars)

Warning/s: mild swearing, mentions of death by bus, gif by @tylerseguin-starsPart 1, Part 3

This is a repost of my own work!

The car stopped roaring, the engine was off. Your death sentence.

“Is there a specific reason why you picked me up? Without Katie?”, you asked, eyeing the younger Benn brother suspiciously as he made no intention to leave the car.

“You know Tyler has been pretty upset about you leaving.”, he started the conversation. 

You weren’t sure if it could be counted as out of the blue since you had seen it coming when he had insisted on picking you up on his way to the restaurant, but still, it was the first time that day that Tyler had been mentioned.

“And that’s why Jordie is my favorite Benn.”, you scoffed. 

Crossing your arms in front of your chest you turned to stare out of the windshield, too stubborn to look at Jamie. And damn those ‘Benn puppy dog eyes’ always worked. Although Jamie didn’t use them as often as Jordie did.

“Ouch, that’s unfair. I was just saying.”, Jamie insisted.

“No, you weren’t just saying. You’re trying to make me feel bad about the whole breakup thing. Don’t you think I know that’s why Katie has been bugging me about this evening for three weeks?”

Four days. That’s all you got. That was your Tyler-free time. But after that Katie had started to tell you about time that had to be made up for because you were both too busy to meet up all the time. She had a point. You had been spending less time with your best friend in the last year, but you knew it wasn’t what Katie was going for.
She had talked about a Girl’s night.
Then it became a Best Friends night.
And all of the sudden: Hey, okay I know you’re probably gonna say no but how about a best friend night with both you and me and Jamie and his best friend.
A trap. Because everyone knew Jamie’s best friend was Tyler and you said no for two weeks but it all got too much.

“Then why did you agree in the first place if there’s not some part of you that wants him back?”

“Wanting him back? I was the one that dumped him, remember? And I have my reasons! The only reason I agreed to this is because I’m a grown up. Katie’s my best friend. She is your better half. Your best friend is Tyler. I gotta deal with that at some point so why not know? I will not take him back, though.”, you insisted.

“But I’m serious, Y/n. I know that he acted like a total ass but he knows that too. And he misses you. He is angry at himself for not taking you seriously. Just give him another shot.”, Jamie pleaded, forcing you to look at him.

“You can’t ask me to do this Jamie. You’re a great friend and I appreciate what you’re trying to do but this is off limits for you. Hell, this is even off limits for Katie.”

You lowered your gaze, resting it on your hands.

“This is personal. And I know Tyler. Maybe he’s sorry. Maybe he misses me. But it won’t change anything. That’s just the way he thinks.”

“Then look me in the eyes and tell me you don’t miss him too.”, Jamie challenged.

“We both know I can’t.”


Dinner was weird. After a hug for Katie and a weird greeting with Tyler, Jamie and Katie proceeded everything the way they had planned out. They were sitting opposite to each other, so you and Tyler had to do so too. They were bringing the conversation to topics like, hey, what have you been doing the last few weeks?

What is someone that just got out of a long-term relationship supposed to say? 

“Oh, I found out that I cry less if I distract myself with a jumbo sized strawberry milkshake and a new Netflix series?”

So you dodged every single topic having to do with you and or Tyler and prayed for the evening to be over. You just wanted to go home, snuggle up in bed and try to forget the way Tyler looked at you as you were staring at your glass of water.

“How about we call this a night?”, Katie said, interrupting the two guys in a short talk about their next opponent.

“Great!”, you blurted out, embarrassed you really said that. Jamie shot you a disappointed look. All you could do was lower your gaze in embarrassment and mouth ‘sorry’ at him.

“Uh, yeah, sure.”, Tyler muttered.

You quietly thanked the universe for having paid already and downed the last bit of your glass, quickly standing up to grab your coat. Waiting for everyone to be ready was like waiting for Jaromir Jagr to quit hockey. Your inner dramatic-self felt yourself age and die in front of your best friend and your ex, leaving only a tombstone in the middle of the restaurant. But when everyone was finally ready, you strolled out of the restaurant directly behind Jamie.

But the universe wasn’t nice.

“Hey Y/n, Jamie and I still have to get some stuff done tonight, would it be okay if Tyler drove you home?”, Katie asked as you stopped in front of their car. And she asked loud enough for all of you to hear.

Everyone was staring at you. You couldn’t say no without being rude but you’d rather get hit by a bus and dragged home tangled in the tires than spending fifteen minutes in a small sports car with Tyler.

You positioned yourself directly between Katie and Tyler, so the latter couldn’t see the way your eyes were practically killing Katie. You were dead serious. It was a clear no. But Katie was trying to get you to say yes. You exchanged a look with the Captain next to her, making it clear that they were crossing the line. Jamie thought back to your talk from the car earlier that evening, clearing his throat to get Katie’s attention.

They were having one of their famous telepathic talks

“You know, I could drop her off at home and then join you.”, Jamie proposed.

It was a good thing you still had your back to Tyler. Because the Stars’ forward was looking at his friend mouthing ‘what the hell’. It had been the plan to let you drive with him. Why change it? It was his chance!

“Sorry, but it’s really important to be there on time. If you’re late we can’t do this… stuff tonight.”

“Katie…”, you warned.

“Sorry. But you can just drive with Tyler.”

You knew from the look on her face that she was feeling guilty, but she was trying to get the two of you back together. It would cost something. And maybe you would be angry at her for a few days, but if it worked it would be worth it.
Another look was exchanged with Jamie who just shrugged slightly and already mentally apologized.

“Oh god, you gotta be kidding me. No, I won’t. Good night.”, you snapped as you knew there was no getting out of this. 

Actually, it hurt you that your friends couldn’t just accept your wishes. You were angry. You wanted to scream at them and you mentally swore to never drive with any of them ever again. You didn’t care where. You would never get into one of their cars again. You would always drive on your own, in your car, the keys with you.

You started walking away from the group, taking fast and long strides. There was nothing wrong about showing how angry you were. They sure as hell deserved to know that they were terrible friends.

“And how are you gonna get home?”, Tyler asked quietly. 

You were almost unable to understand him, but it was clear that he was disappointed. No. He had absolutely NO right to be. You whipped around at the speed of a freaking meteor and shot him an angry look that he could even see from the distance you had in between of you.

“Calling a friend. Taking a Uber. Or getting hit and dragged by a freaking bus. Anything. Just not with you.”, you yelled in pain. 

And you had to admit, you loved the fire burning inside of you when you saw Tyler turning his face away from you as if you had just given him a mental slap to the face.

“Y/n.”, Katie gasped.

“Don’t! You’ve done enough tonight Katie. This could have ended differently. But you just had to disrespect my point of view and drag me here. It’s actually pretty funny. Because disrespect is the fucking reason why Tyler and I broke up in the first place!”, you laughed sarcastically.

“Y/n, it’s enough.”, Jamie said, using his captain voice. 

He didn’t sound angry, he knew that the whole evening had been a giant provocation against you and he didn’t realize how they couldn’t have foreseen this outcome.
Putting you and Tyler together, making you talk and spend time with each other. It turned you into a time bomb that exploded in their faces.

“Whatever.”, you groaned.

You turned around swiftly, disappearing in the dark.

“No, she can take it, Jamie. Please just set up a meeting, Jamie. We won’t take it too far, Jamie.”, Jamie muttered to himself, unlocking the car.

“Why can’t we just go have dinner like normal people for once?”, he asked himself.

In the cosmic world of the Old Norse system of belief, animals were an integral part because they possessed knowledge of nature and conveyed it to humans and gods. Humans transgressing their bodily boundaries by becoming animals were therefore nothing unnatural, just slightly unusual. Fluidity, hybridity and metamorphosis were considered as simple facts of nature. In this process, body parts were integrated in animal wholes to indicate ambiguity and shape shifting, illustrating the Old Norse saying eigi einhamr, that is a person ‘not of one shape’.

However, metamorphosis and hybridity are different in ‘nature’. Metamorphosis is a process, while hybridity is not (Bynum 2001: 28 ff.). A hybrid is an entity of two or more parts and it is visible; we actually see what a hybrid is. Like the creatures in the animal styles, a hybrid is a double/triple, etc., being. Here, eagle, wild boar, snake, beast, etc. and humans constitute hybrid forms that encapsulate the power and ability of all species. The same might be seen in the hyphenated personal names with two or three names in combination: animals as well as battle/war/fight-synonyms. On the contrary, metamorphosis goes from one entity to another and is essentially narrative. The metamorphosis is a process going on from beginning to end, and is comparable to the little death of the shaman/bear/sei∂-man/women in the stage of soul journey/winter hibernation. It is a constant series of changes and replacements. Metamorphosis breaks down categories by breaching them: man becoming wolf or bear, male becoming female, youth becoming a tree, etc. In opposition to this, hybridity is about contradictions. In a hybrid form, contradictory categories are forced to co-exist, such as when man, wolf, snake, eagle and wild boar co-exist in the animal iconography. I

okay ONE more thing. maybe it’s just me but it felt to me like lucifer has kind of started to make peace with chloe being put in his path? like to me it kind of seems that his anger about it has diminished and perhaps when amenadiel said, “it wasn’t a manipulation, it was a gift.” and chloe telling him they couldn’t move backwards things started to click into place in his head. like he was so hell bent on revenge just a few episodes ago and now he completely let all of that go, gave his mother a new life and was ready to move forward with chloe and tell her the truth. things are getting through to him. he’s finally starting to understand things for what they are. he’s grown so much even since last episode and i’m just. shook.
