Captain Of His Soul - AOS Jim/Spock - Hurt/Comfort - Multi-chapter

Embarking upon the Five-Year mission with the Starfleet flagship, and the best and the brightest aboard her, it seems that Jim Kirk has it all. With Spock and Bones beside him, his physical recovery complete, he feels ready to take on the universe. But when Command orders the Enterprise into a diplomatic mission involving an unstable, warring planet, somebody is bound to get hurt. Adept at hiding both his demons and his affections, Jim is ready to do whatever it takes to be the Captain Pike wanted him to be, whether that involves sacrificing his happiness, or even his life.

Peace is not a universal objective.

Going to Bed

I have a really hard time going to bed. There are a lot of barriers in the way of sleep, and of course they all compound into a massive mess. I’m fairly confident in saying that my circadian rhythm operates on a non-24 hour cycle, so of course that’s a hard position to start with for this. I also suspect that adhd plays a big role. 

If I’m understimulated, then I’m probably already an arms length from painfully aimless boredom. So asking me to give up the handful of things I’m doing or videos I’m watching, and just do nothing until I hopefully fall asleep, that’s a lot.

If I’m hyperfocused on a task, then I definitely know that the focus I have for that task isn’t going to be guaranteed to come back anytime soon. Trying to stop myself then is even harder because I know I have to ride a productive task as long as I can, else deal with yet another unfinished project on the pile. 

If I’m exhausted, I often find that I’m too tired and not well enough collected mentally to formulate the semblance of executive functioning needed to initiate the task of going to bed. Not sure if anyone else’s executive dysfunction can be so bad as to make you too tired to be able to get into bed, but mine sure is. 

If I’m not tired at all, which is usually the case when I logically know i should go to bed, then good luck falling asleep even if I do get in bed. I’ll lay in bed a while without a hint of sleep, before giving up and just being awake too long instead. Much better than a couple years ago when an unfortunate association with sleep and needles made my brain make being in bed physically painful in a very specific and awful way for me and my reaction to the idea needles. At least now I’ve gotten better enough that I actually can lay in bed even if I’m not literally falling asleep within a minute or two.

If I’m in a conversation with someone, or one just ended but it’s ambiguous to me if it’s really over or not, then I can’t go to bed because I have a task uncompleted. Social interaction also is something that helps deal with the painfully bored-ness of how things are when nothing seems good to do. Talking to someone in a meaningful way is a fairly reliable way to have something to put my attention on and have it feel fulfilled. Not something conducive to sleeping, if I can’t converse and sleep at the same time. The closest I got was during a stretch of time when a friend and I would fall asleep together. The socialness of that without need for being awake for that, made it a really good way to fall asleep by something other than the whims of my brain alone. I miss being able to sleep like that for more reasons too, but I also miss being able to go to sleep more reliably. 

I also assume that I don’t “feel” tiredness as clearly or as directly as most people? I mostly only notice it indirectly, and infrequently even when clearly tired. Hyposensitive? Not sure how most people feel it. 

I just want to be able to go to bed and fall asleep in predictable ways that are convenient to adult life.

anonymous asked:

Gladnis on a date but the waiter is totally creeping on Gladio, like leaning over his shoulder to get a look down his shirt or accidentally spilling stuff on Ignis so Gladio would be by himself. Of course, Gladio is smart to recognize the signs and whatever you see happening basically!

Thank you for this lovely prompt, anon! It only took me, what, like ten years to get to this? *sighs* Funnily enough, procrastinating on school has made me UNprocrastinate with writing heheh - anyway, hope you enjoy! :D



Gladnis: Gladiolus x Ignis


Word Count: 2,408

Gladio was used to people hitting on him. That was nothing new. It happened almost everyday. It could be something from the small smirk on their lips, the sparkle in their eye, or a very obvious attempt at flirting.

Of course he’d politely decline their attempts - should it go too far he’d tell them that he was in a committed relationship. Usually at that point they backed off - as a decent human being should do.

But then there were the people that really didn’t get the fucking hint.

Normally he’d be good with that too - but the fact that this guy, the waiter that was currently serving them, was still hitting on him despite the fact that it was quite clear he was with his significant other - was something to be marveled at.

Especially since his said significant other was right in front of him.

He’d give the guy credit for guts if he wasn’t so thoroughly disturbed by the persistence.

It had started out relatively familiar, the way it usually did - with the unabashed smirks and the roaming eyes. Gladio had quite clearly steered the conversation towards the fact that this was a date - but oddly the man hadn’t seemed deterred by it.

If his present mannerisms were anything to go by.

“Alright, for you, sir?”

Gladio watched, brows slightly furrowed as the waiter seemed to have a completely bored and disinterested expression on his face as he addressed Ignis, it was almost insulting - but Ignis, as always, paid it not mind and upturned his face towards the man as he addressed him politely.

“The house chardonnay, if you would.” He responded offering him a nod before he set the menu aside.

The waiter nodded, jotting down the drink before he turned to take Gladio’s order.

It was like night and day.

The smile that overcame the waiter’s face was coy, and layered with suggestiveness, his eyes glancing up and down Gladio’s form. “And what can I get for you?”
