Particular Pecularity by saavik13m, 43k, Mature: “How high is your regard for me, Watson?” He asked abruptly, his eyes still trained on the fire. “If I were to confess my darkest secret would you leave? Would you abandon me here to my melancholy?”A case forces Holmes to reveal the truth to Watson and risks both their reputations and their liberty. Just how understanding is John Watson?

Since First I Saw Your Face by Stavia_Scott_Grayson, 42k, Mature, Holmes POV, wip: During the Great Hiatus, Holmes, studying in Tibet, reflects on his first meeting with Dr John Watson. Full of historical references, with a hopelessly in love Holmes, beautiful writing, one of the best fics of the moment. I can’t recommend it enough, it’s so good D:

Le Beau Gent sans Merci by SweetSorcery, 2k, Teen: News of Captain Jack Croker and Lady Mary Brackenstall start Holmes and Watson talking about the perfect relationship.

All the Makings of a Great Romance by fleetwood_mouse, 12k, Explicit, Holmes POV: Sherlock Holmes lays down his account of the events of The Adventure Of The Empty House, the years leading up to it, and the night that followed.

Notes On A Love Story by A_Candle_For_Sherlock, 4k, gen: Watson finds a copy of The Picture of Dorian Gray in Holmes’ room. Or: what happens when a queer novel upends Baker Street.

Hidden Depths by Susannah_Shepherd, 7k, Explicit: Watson inadvertently lets slip that his war injuries are far more extensive and crippling than he has formerly admitted. Holmes encourages him to confront his fears and find new hope.

Lesson Learned by Shadowycat, 9k, Mature: In which, Holmes makes a discovery, Watson makes a decision, and Holmes learns a lesson (or two) he never thought he’d want to learn. (Alternating Holmes and Watson POVs.)

Rubicon by Janeturenne, on livejournal, 4k: “One minute we were both on the deck, and the next minute we were both in the river…“ after an explosion while working on a case, Holmes and Watson think they’ve lost each other.

and, if you haven’t read all of Katy Forsythe, you should ;)

hey if you guys are looking for something to read LET ME RECOMMEND YOU the Shades of Magic series by V.E. Schwab

like this series is freaking amazing.

it has:

  • amazing writing that is beautiful without being overwrought
  • a really hecking good plot with magic and adventure and great worldbuilding
  • NO LOVE TRIANGLES
  • all the romances feel organic
  • amazing antiheroes
  • there’s rotating main characters and they include a badass fucking lady who is disabled (one eye) and a bisexual prince
  • AND!! the prince’s bisexuality isn’t a Secret or a Big Plot Point it’s just ‘here he is making out with ladies. now dudes’ but it’s also prominent enough that his romances are featured in the books and not mentioned as an afterthought (looking at you, J.K. Rowling)
  • the series actaully (imo) gets better as it progresses instead of derailing
  • THE WRITING IS SO GOOD OKAY

i was blessed enough to be able to rewatch the original batb animated movie today with my cousin, and after thinking about it again and again and again and AGAIN, i’ve reached something of a conclusion

everything else is a minor hiccup. if they’d only kept three key things intact in the remake i would not be this angry (warning for spoilers):

  1. belle’s character. the greatest strength the original belle had was that she was gracious, polite, and patient, even in the face of rude boors like gaston, and this strength of character was what ultimately helped her “tame” the beast and bring out the best in him. the new belle was not only haughty and dismissive of just about everyone around her (it might have been something of an upgrade if gaston had been more openly rude to her, but by downplaying gaston and belle’s interaction they made belle look much worse) but her “stubbornness” was almost excruciatingly emphasized to the point of seeming artificial and showed very little development throughout the course of the story which made her look, to me, very immature and unlikable. this might have been in large part due to emma watson not being able to act as any other character than movie!hermione, which i feel doesn’t fit this story at all. somehow, in the year 2017, the movie falls for the trap of making “strong female characters” the usual headstrong, mouthy stereotype of a woman and it makes me roll my eyes

  2. beast’s character. in the original, it was made very clear that although he really did want to be a more polite, kind individual, he didn’t quite know how to do it, hence his numerous losses of temper and faux pas. his beastly nature, so to speak, overpowered the rest of his personality and it took the patience of another person to tame it out of him. he didn’t need a tragic backstory to explain why he became this way; he was a plenty tragic character on his own, and his quest to become a better person wasn’t just a natural result of him falling in love with belle but also an active effort on his part, something that was foreshadowed amply even before they started falling in love. in the remake, though, beast undergoes much less of a development, precisely because he isn’t given much room to develop. he’s your usual broody byronic hero (my friend used the term “emo teenage boy” lmao) who is petulant for the sake of being petulant, is just as reluctant to be close to belle as she is to him at first, and doesn’t show much initiative for a relationship with her, which is why it feels so artificial and out of the blue when he saves her from the wolves

  3. belle and beast’s relationship. this follows naturally from all of the above. i get that they were trying to go for a more “organic” romance where belle and beast are just “naturally compatible, they just don’t know it yet~!” but that’s at the expense of the ENTIRE FUCKING POINT OF BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, and just ends up reducing it to another boring straight romcom story instead of one where the importance of changing one another and reaching compromises in relationships is highlighted. i almost feel like the “taming the beast” plot was discarded because belle and beast’s characters were so vastly rewritten that such a plot would seem implausible; belle feels just as immature as beast at times, and beast doesn’t seem to be afflicted with a curse that makes him act more beastly, so much as just a bad personality, but it’s all justified bc “his childhood was shitty, okay?” and what’s the point of a beauty and the beast remake if it’s not….a beauty and the beast story…….

that’s the worst of it, imo. if you read all that, kudos to you. everything else–the dress, the cgi, the designs, even the autotune–is all very minor and forgivable to me in light of the three main things up there, and all the other changes they made to the other characters would also be more palatable if not for them. i actually sort of liked what they did with lefou despite the debacle about his sexuality. i liked what they did with maurice. i liked that they clarified the relationship between beast and his servants a bit more. but all of it falls flat if the main players don’t stand up to scrutiny

Naked & Proud (18783 words) by kiwikero [AO3]

Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: One Direction (Band)
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Harry Styles/Louis Tomlinson
Characters: Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Original Female Character(s), Original Male Character(s)
Additional Tags: Where do I begin, Grocery Store, Small Towns, Farmer Harry, Songwriter Louis, lots of organic food, Pining, Summer Romance, Lust at First Sight, Blow Jobs, Anal Sex, Rimming, Fluff and Smut, Humor, only a little bit of angst because i’m incapable of leaving it out, Additional Warnings In Author’s Note, Podfic Available
Summary:

The town itself is tiny, as evidenced by the ten minutes it’s taken Louis to drive the entire thing. There’s not a single recognisable brand in sight—no Tesco or McDonald’s or even a bloody Starbucks. Lining the streets instead are mom and pop stores with names like ‘Jerry’s Burgers’ and ‘The Market Basket’ and…

“'Naked & Proud?‘” Louis almost slams on the brakes at the outlandish sign, the name written in a seemingly innocent font, words curved around a large cartoon peach. He can’t help turning into the carpark, easing the car into a spot next to a beat up truck.

He isn’t sure what to make of it. Surely it isn’t a strip joint or sex shop, not with the families and little old ladies going in and out of the establishment. Some kind of nudist hangout, perhaps?

And, oh, God. Did Louis’ mother accidentally send him to live in a nudist colony?

In which Harry runs an organic store, not a nudist colony, and Louis doesn’t know whether to be relieved or disappointed.

The Crush Dictionary

Many years ago I developed a dictionary for classifying crushes into organized categories.  
These categories are represented by milkshake flavors.

Chocolate Milk:  To have a significant crush on one person in particular and not know if the crush is reciprocated. 

Blueberry - To have a small crush but consider it more of a fondness and nothing significant.

Strawberry - To have a crush on two people at the same time.

 

Raspberry - To have a crush on three or more people at the same time.

Dark Chocolate - To have an all-consuming crush that is potentially unhealthy. 

Banana - To be aware that your crush is unrequited but continue to have the crush regardless. 

Peach - To live in a state of denial, pretending you do not have a crush. 

Plum - To have a crush that is reciprocated but not in the form of a committed relationship.

Vanilla - To have a committed relationship with your reciprocated crush.

 

Organic - To have a crush which you prefer to regard as a platonic attraction rather than a romantic one.

  

Plain - To not have a crush on anyone.

Smoothie blend - A combination of flavors.                                                         For example: A blueberry-raspberry-banana smoothie would describe a person who has a small crush on three or more people, even though this is unreciprocated.   

This concept is very useful for confidential conversations confided through notes passed in classrooms.

It can also be effectively incorporated into entertaining smoothie-making activities at sleepovers and parties.

anonymous asked:

I gots a question! how's Hellsing, Millennium, Iscariot's reaction of doing the do? -eye brow wiggles-

Oh my~ Alrighty anon, I did this as a mix sort of - thoughts as well as some fluffy cuddling since I wasn’t sure exactly what “reaction” meant, though let me know if you want something different :) Wrote the descriptions with “you” this time. And I apologize for not being able to make every reaction gender-neutral/giving the “partner” a certain sex. 

GIF Request: Reaction to Sex (SFW) - Hellsing + Millennium + Iscariot

Alucard

He would allow himself to get lost in you for just a little while, enjoying the aftermath of the encounter and fading away to another place for a while, forgetting what he was, who he was, and how he was.

Seras

Seras would immediately take this act as something more than just intimate, but as a promise. From this point on, you and here would be together. Sex to her was a scary thing, so the fact that she did this with you is something of a sign of actual love.

Integra

She would not make a big deal out of it at first, but would secretly cherish your time together. She would think about it a lot and want to experience it again, not just for pleasure, but for the bond that was created from it.

Pip

He’d prefer cuddling with you on top, loving the feeling of your weight on him as he held you. He was rather perverted, yes, but he the time still meant something to him, especially since it was you.

Walter

Walter would not be the most affectionate afterwards, though would be willing to cuddle of course. When you fell asleep though, is when he’d actually showcase his love with light touches as he though about the significance of what just happened.

The Major

It’s official now, you’re the Major’s and this act has cemented it. Not the most sentimental type, the Major won’t being expressing any sort of love proclamation, but he will be certain to remind you of your role in his life. That sounded really creepy but it’s hard not to be with the Major.

The Doctor

The Doctor is really into body-worship due to his love of the human body, so expect him to throw compliments at you and keep wanting to touch you after the deed, being absolutely enamored with your body.

The Captain

The Captain would probably end up falling asleep snuggled up to you, no matter how many times you’ve committed the act and no matter how rough it was. He’ll lay on top of you even, resting his head on your stomach as he falls asleep in your embrace.

Zorin

Things would be pretty nonchalant and she wouldn’t treat it as a big deal. You two would doze off, messing up the bed space as tossed and turned, but always managed to hang onto each other.

Schrodinger

Expect lots of giggling and silly touches after the intimate act. Schrodinger would still make this serious event silly, bopping noses and snuggling up to you with this enthusiasm. 

Rip

She takes this seriously, so you better too. Now that you two have bonded this way, expect an even deeper need for attention from you. She will want to be with you more after realizing how close you two truly are.

Jan

You would need to push if you want to cuddle, considering he’ll just turn around and sleep or smoke. Nonetheless, he’s up for it; don’t believe his whining and teasing - he actually wants to.

Luke

For whatever reason, Luke prefers to lay on your lap after sex and give you gentle touches and kisses in random places, loving to mess with your hair as you mess with his. 

Tubalcain

Tubalcain embarrassingly enough is rather tired afterwards and wants nothing more than to fall asleep. He enjoys using you as a pillow, resting his head on your shoulder, collar, or chest as he quickly falls asleep.

Anderson

If somehow you were able to convince Anderson to do the act, I hope you cherish it since it probably won’t happen again. He may even be angry with both himself and you for a while for giving into the weakness, though he won’t regret it, which is the most frustrating part of it.

Enrico

He’d flip his shit for a while. As bishop, he felt he was betraying his duty, but at the same time was looking forward to the next time he could be with you. Everything was so confusing for him. Unlike the others, however, he’d go right ahead and sweep you up again, deciding that he wasn’t going to fight this and he deserved you

Yumie/Yumiko

Like Anderson, if this were to occur, count yourself lucky, since she probably wouldn’t do it again. Believe me, she’d struggle with the desire to do so, but would fight it. She may even break up with you out of frustration, but just be patient with her.

Heinkel

Another tragic love here. Heinkel would disappear before morning broke through, leaving you alone. They’d just be gone and a lot of searching would ensue where a confrontation would occur. They weren’t restrained by any religious role, but nonetheless were confused, maybe even scared by how close they were becoming.


There you are dear anon, hope you like it and I hope you thought everyone was in character ;) I am so freaking sappy.

anonymous asked:

Why do people like "girlfriends" that much? It got really tedious to read and is not memorable, as i dont remember anything from it. All i remember is that it had "kind of" a sex-scene at the end. And i also think the last text bubble was saying "something something imprinted on her/your face"

Idk about the others but I like it coz I enjoyed the story, the art and the characters. The romance was organic, there was humor and there’s a lot of fluff. It’s something I felt was an age-appropriate story I was able to relate to during that time. It’s light and not too angsty for my taste.

anonymous asked:

GIFs you say. Alright, how about some romantic interactions between Millenium and their partners. Like, a GIF expressing their love best or something?

My goodness Anon, I just posted that a few hours ago! Way to be on the ball. I will give this a shot, though I’m not sure how great I’ll be. I went with some relationship quirks and things, I hope that’s okay.

GIF Request: Relationship Headcanons - Millennium

The Major

Okay, I’m not even sorry XD I mean, have you seen some of his facial expressions. I honestly think the Major would be a little strange in a relationship, though not meaning to be. He’d probably get one of those creepy smiles whenever his partner walked in the room.

The Doctor

The Doctor is rather vocal with compliments when it comes to his partner. He lets them know all of the time how amazing they are. I see him as the kind of guy to be like “Yeah, well, _____ is way better than your partner.” XD

The Captain

Since the Captain can’t talk, he’d be much more physical when it came to affection. His non-verbal communication would be all that he could show, but wouldn’t hesitate to show his partner that he cares.

Schrodinger

XD Okay, again, not sorry. I don’t necessarily see Schrodinger as a clingy partner, but he’d get pretty excited when it came to his partner coming back from a mission. He’d want an immediate hug, though his partner would probably be too tired for his antics, which of course would result in a chase.

Zorin Blitz

Zorin doesn’t understand how she came to be with her partner. Zorin’s partner doesn’t understand how they ended up with Zorin. It just kind of happened. Though Zorin is in no way affectionate, she will randomly tell them that she loves them nonchalantly. 

Luke Valentine

Okay, I couldn’t help it, I’m so sorry! XD So, Luke is a confident fellow, but nonetheless practices his wooing in the mirror to make sure he’s got the right face for this partner. Of course, they usually end up walking in on him…

Jan Valentine

Jan is the kind of guy who will act super suave and sweet and romantic, only for to end up being a ploy so he can touch his partner in some perverted way. His partner is used to by now, but it’s still rather embarrassing in public.

Rip Van Winkle

Rip is VERY affectionate, probably the most out of everyone in Millennium. She constantly showers her partner in kisses whenever she gets the chance and especially does so whenever they go on dates like to the opera.

Tubalcain Alhambra

Tubalcain is smooth and suave at all times with his partner, though tends to get distracted from them rather easily, but never forgets to show his love somehow. (Also, why does Tony Stark remind me so much of Alhambra, I do not understand by mind sometimes)

Bonus: Dark Walter

ALL OF THE TEASING!! Walter loves to tease his partner, especially around others so he can see them get flustered. He’ll make lude gestures or give crude looks or start spewing innuendos. It’s his thing.

(Oh no what have I unleashed?!?!?)

Welcome to the City of Monsters.

Crime runs rampant in the streets, and the Voltron Alliance was established to combat the rise of crimes involving superhuman abilities. Revered as upholders of justice and peace, there are measures the Alliance cannot afford to take in order to maintain their public image. All they can do is protect the innocent, defend the law, and keep the peace. The Galra have been dominating both the city and the criminal underworld for too long, however, and what’s needed is change.

Change is not meant for heroes. Change is meant for revolutionaries, for rebels.

(Enter Lance.)

tldr; Keith is a superhero who’s been pining after the cute boy who works at the music shop across the street from HQ. He also doesn’t know that the cute boy is the same vigilante he wants to bring to justice.

2, 22, 26, and/or 28 for nurseydex? i love your writing thanks for sharing it <3

22. two miserable people meeting at a wedding au // nurseydex

Dex is going onto hour four of his catering shift and losing steam quick when he sees Handsome Man through the clear panel on the stock room door.

He is, in short, the most beautiful person Dex has ever seen. He’s stretched out across the window sill in a way that highlights the very appealing lines of his fantastic body and he’s clearly one of the wedding guests, discarded garments of what looks like a cream-colored three piece lying at his feet. He’s left in a white dress shirt rolled up to his elbows, and judging by the label on the pocket, it probably costs more than Dex is going to make this week.

It should be annoying, especially since he’s also thumbing through a paperback with a cover so obnoxious Dex just knows it’s popular in pretentious indie circles, but… god, he looks good.

“Hey,” Dex says, pushing through the door and cursing whatever god made it his responsibility to kick Handsome Man out of the stock room, “I get it, that’s the ninth time they’ve played Thinking Out Loud, but you still can’t be in here, man.”

Handsome Man is momentarily startled, his eyes darting from his pages to where Dex is standing, but once he recovers he gives Dex a very slow appraisal over the rim of his tortoiseshell glasses. His mouth stretches into a slow smile, “why? Am I going to get you in trouble?”
