so James Potter is an arrogant little nerd, who can’t believe that people aren’t interested in quidditch, he knows every fact about the Holyhead Harpies, so when Lily Evans looks up at him with wide green eyes asking what a snitch is and demanding why he compared her to one, he just about loses his shit
Lily Evans loves to go on broomstick rides. She hates playing quidditch because she’s rubbish at the sport, but she loves flying. She always used to dream about flying, and whenever she wondered about superheroes she knew if she had powers she would be up with the birds, until she discovered she actually did have powers. Except brooms are expensive and when she asked for one Mr. Evans sent her a regular broomstick so she sometimes steals them from the broom shed and flies around the school
She is sure no one ever see’s except once james is studying in the astronomy tower and see’s a flash of red and is in complete awe as he watches her spread her arms and laugh as she pulls up from a dive
James found out how much Lily loved sugar quills and he starts eating them himself, and always offering one to her just so he can talk to her and at first she is super suspicious because one should never just accept food from a marauder, except he tests them and nothing happens and soon they talk even when he doesn’t have a pack of sugar quills in his bag
James goes into the forbidden forest one night after breaking up with his girlfriend who cheated on him and Lily feels horrible and follows him in except she gets horribly lost and when he calms down and is already almost to the castle he spots her on the map and trucks her down, only to find she’s made friends with some giant spiders who are already showing her the way back (just proves his point that Lily Evans can charm literally anything)
Lily loves to bake and sometimes when she has spare time she will go down to the kitchens and help the house elves bake desserts for the students and at first they won’t let her help but eventually they become her friends and she is always welcome to help, and she even teaches them some new recipes and soon muggles feel at home recognizing some new desserts, and James cannot stop talking about the fudge brownies that just started appearing.
When Lily was a kid she always wanted to wear glasses because she thought she would look smarter so sometimes she just steal’s James and he has to admit, from what he can see (which isn’t really anything) she looks pretty hot
Of course James thinks Lily Evans looks great wearing just about anything
She steals a lot of his t-shirts because she’s half a foot shorter and they are so large and so soft and smell so good, like peppermint and the sky
sometimes Lily gets really homesick and misses watching The X Files so one day she gets permission from McGonagall to transfigure some pillows into a television and she watches all the new episodes in the common room and James was studying but now he is yelling at Scully “OH WHY WON’T YOU JUST BELIEVE ALREADY”
Lily has a favorite armchair, literally every gryffindor know it’s her chair, and in the common room no one dares disturb her area, especially when she’s in the zone. So when she comes back from the library with books, and finds a certain James Potter sitting in her seat, she doesn’t hesitate to whack him overside the head with her books, and when that doesn’t do anything she just sits on his lap and nochalantly does her work
and he is freaking out because HOLY FUCK LILY EVANS IS SITTING ON ME
and right before they started dating when they would do patrols, their hands would always brush up against each other and they would both blush and stammer until one day Lily just grabs his hand and he accepts it and now it seems as though rounds are going by much faster, hm strange
Lily told James that if he scores 80 points she will go jump in the lake
he scores 280 points and that night he pushes her into the lake and she fumbles for his ankle and soon he tumbles in and BLOODY HELL IT’S FREEZING but they’re laughing and splashing each other and it’s kinda fun
James Potter who sets an alarm for when lily is by herself with suspected death eaters so the map will ring and whenever he hears the ring, he goes running
even when Lily has a mobile phone and it rings and he was talking to her, he goes running until realizing
Lily accidentally falling asleep in herbology after Marlene and Sirius had a fight that night and he carries her up to the common room and ditched class from the start
James and Lily wearing matching christmas sweaters which she asked her aunt to do
also the marauders and matching animal sweaters
and Lily charms them so they are like the ones from hannah montanna that make noises and have tails
and McGonagall confiscates them all for being “too noisy in the common room”
Lily Evans and James Potter playing speed with her muggle deck of cards and he creaming him every time
“you bloody witch, how on earth do you keep beating me?”
Plot: the day had been tough you had gone on a hunt with Audrey trying to find clues left unseen at the barn. You had spent most of the evening searching with her but didn’t find anything. As you got out you saw something hanging from a tree and called Audrey out. You both ran to find a gutted pig hanging from the tree with the words “ I see all ” written on the pigs flesh. Just before turning around and walking away the pig fell on you and Audrey staining your clothes with blood.
Warning : pure fluff …. Maybe a little sin.
“Ugh how on earth will I take this pig blood off” you said while opening the door to the passengers seat.
“ and how will I explain to my parents when they see me walking in like this!!”
You looked at Audrey looking amused by your mini panic attack.
“ Audrey this isn’t funny or amusing. They’ll kill me . Literally, or worse send me to a crazy home ” Audrey laughed as she closed the door and turned on the car.
“ okay they might kill you.that isn’t so bad considering what we’re dealing with now is it y/n ” she looked serious but cracked a Side smile at the end once she saw you lighten up and burst into laughter .
“ you can come over to my place. My dad is on this business trip until next week you can change and take a shower before heading home….. If you’d like ” she said the last part avoid eye contact and driving away from the barn
“ that would be great you said are you sure you don’t mind ”
you looked at Audrey she had her eyes locked on the road as she said “ no I don’t mind. Me casa es tu casa ” you laughed at her attempt to speak Spanish. The rest of the way home she cracked jokes making you laugh. As she pulled in the her diveway you repeated the written words on the pig . “ I see all” what do you think the killer is trying to tell us? “
” I’m not sure, It could mean anything. Maybe something to do with the fact that he’s/she’s always one step ahead of us.“ You locked eyes with her for a split second before getting out of the car. provoking fluttering in your stomach. she looked calm considering what had just happened. She opens the door to her house leading you up the stairs to her bedroom . She pointed to her bathroom.
” the bathroom is there you can leave your clothes in the bin “
” thanks Audrey are you sure you don’t want to go first “
” no ill go to my dad’s bathroom and wash up there" she said smiling at you. “I’ll get you a towel, They should be in the dryer” she said while leaving her room to go downstairs. You looked to her bathroom and down at your clothes that stained red and had an awful smell . You headed quickly to her bathroom ready to get rid of your clothes unaware that you had left the door slightly open. You had taken off your jeans and tugged at the hem of your shirt pulling it off your body. Audrey walked into her room and caught sight of you through the crack she watched as you slowly took off your shirt and let it drop to the floor revealing your favourite lace bralette and the matching black underwear. She looked at you up and Down devouring you with her hungry stare. you turned to looked into the mirror and saw the reflection of Audrey at her door, towel on hand she was watching you her face expression was blood boiling she was bitting her bottom lip before she looked up at your face you quickly looked away from the mirror avoiding eye contact. Soon after Audrey knocked on the door “ I found a towel” you opened the door slightly careful not to show anything but your face and hand that was reaching for the towel “ thanks” you said unable to make eye contact with her as you took the towel your finger touched hers there was a spark. Butterflies maybe . You smiled and closed the door. You thought about what had happened while washing up. The way she had stared at you. Was it possible that she had feelings for you. More then just friends. You started to panic at the thought of her knowing you cought her staring at you from the mirrors reflection. You got out of the tub and drying yourself up putting on your bralette, underwear and your gray high knee socks the only thing that hadn’t gotten stained with blood. realizing you had already taken to long you opened the door walking out with the towel rapped around you. Your hair still dripping. Audrey was already dressed and clean She looked at you and smiled from her bed you smiled back before asking for something to ware. She looked through her clothes in search for a clean shirt the only one she could find was an oversized black T-shirt and some black shorts she handed them to you
“ sorry that’s all I’ve got. Today was wash day so all of my other clothes are still in the dryer ” you slipped on the oversided T and let the towel fall she stared at you bitting her lip. “ the shirt was loose on you it reached your mid thigh so the shorts weren’t needed. ” so can i stay the night “ you said “um sure” she said off garde still looking at you. “ "I’m hungry. Do you have anything to eat?……
We should order pizza ”
“ I’ll get the films she said walking to her bookshelf grabbing 5 of your favorite horror films ” you both went down to her living room and layed down a blanket on the floor with a lot of pillows like you always did on Friday night’s the door bell rang and Audrey went to get it you had handed her 30$ but she said it was on her. Just at the thoughts of being so close to her tonight made you nervous but you calmed yourself down convincing yourself it would be like any other Friday night. You had always liked her but not until today had you thought about her more then just a friend. When she came back she had the pizza at hand she sat next to you. Closer then usual. You both got a slice and started watching the movie. Throught the movie you cought her staring at you a few times you tried to brush it off and not think to much of it. Maybe she was tense from today.. your thoughts were interrupted by the “ pause ” on The tv screen you looked at Audrey with confusion she was staring back at you with a fragile look. You were about to ask her what was wrong but your thought got cut off when you felt her hand on your jaw she leaned closer to you and stopped inches away from your face looking into your eye waiting for you to back away or tell her to stop. You didn’t. you wanted her.
She leaned closer brushing her lips on yours before kissing you. there was a spark and heat something you had never experienced before with your past boyfriends she was fragile but rough and the same time. Her hands moved to your thighs pulling you on her lap in a quick movement. you were ontop of her cradling her kissing her deeper as she asked for more. Her hand ran up your spine to the back of your neck the other was rapped around your waist not wanting to let go. You played with the hair on the back of her neck with one hand the other was rapped around her shoulder. You both broke the kiss with red faces from the heat. She smiled looking down and you acknowledged her features. She fiddled with the hem of your high knee sock making you ache. You bit your lip as she moved her hand higher to your inner thigh. She looked up at you still flushed “ your so beautiful y/n” unable to resist you pressed your lips on hers kissing her but still wanting more. She took a hold of your waist as she laid you down underneath her careful not to break the kiss , slowly moving her kisses down to your neck while spreading your legs with her knees. you moaned out loud unable to keep it in, she smiled and continued what she was doing she took hold of the hem of your shirt slowly exposing skin but got interrupted by a knock at the door she ignored it but that only made the knocking increase she got up annoyed breaking the kiss. You heard as she argued with a male voice before she yelled “ Noah wait ” she said a bit to late as Noah walked in on you still laying on the floor flushed luckly you had been able to pull the shirt down covering yourself. “ oh hey y/n ” he said with a confused expression “ hey Noah” you said sitting up.
‘What are you doing here Noah ? “
Audrey sounded annoyed
” it’s Friday night isn’t it? It’s horror night …… When you guys and myself get together and watch movies…. Remember”
Audrey accepted what Noah had said but still looking annoyed. The annoyance left her once she cought sight of you staring back you sat next to her the rest of the night careful not to make things between you two to obvious for Noah. She took your hand in hers and leaned towards your ear kissing it slightly while she said “can you come over tomorrow night?” you smiled and looked at her while nodding your head she smiled while bitting her bottom lip.
hope you guys enjoy. Might make a “seen 2 ” not sure though.
two voltron teams had fallen into sync. With goals so close to the
same, and several mutual teammates, it had been an obvious, but more
importantly easy, alliance to work out. So while the lion team had been
busy as the lynch pin, taking out Zarkon’s main ship, Commander
Hawkin’s teams had been scattered to key points throughout the rest of
the galaxy, taking out Galra jump points and vital infrastructure
installations, keeping reinforcements from arriving to help Zarkon’s
downed ship and making use of the chaos to destroy targets that would
set the Empire back hard.
You never promised to come back. Space
Explorers, at least Garrison bred ones, didn’t at least. It was
considered bad luck. And more importantly - it was considered too hard a
promise to keep. The senior dorm had a plaque on its wall, right in
the main lobby and it matched the larger monument that rose, white and
streamlined, in the center of campus. The plaque was a list of names -
of astronauts and explorers and scientists and colonists that never came
home. It wasn’t a long list, all things considered, but it was also an
unfinished list with room at the bottom for more names. A reminder,
just before you reached for the stars, of what might be waiting out
there for you. No one went to class at the Garrison that didn’t walk
past the monument, or the plaque, multiple times a day.
hadn’t asked Takashi to come back. And she hadn’t promised she would
either. Whatever was between them now, still new, still working itself
out, all she’d done was take a kiss, hot and long and deep and joint
loosening, for good luck and all she’d given in return was the small,
almost worn unreadable from the passage of thousands of thumb rubs,
metal charm she’d had with her when she’d gone looking, with the other
top class Garrison pilots, for him, lost at Kerberos.
She’d come back.
Just gone. And who knew where or why or how. Not even a dead moon to
search this time. Just - lost. Back into the black emptiness of space,
swallowed whole like a dying star and a black hole. Gone.
And Lisa’s world had gone quiet and still and the edges had shaded to grey.
she wasn’t the only one wounded by his loss and the Galra Empire didn’t
stop for emptiness and lost pilots. Life went on. The fight went on.
Lisa fell back into her quiet, her cold, her empty space again,
shouldered who and what she could to have something to be useful for and
kept going. That was what you did. Kept going through the cold and
the dark and the hollow tinny echo of life. If she didn’t smile or sigh
or read her silly romance novels anymore - well, she didn’t cry or
Life went on. The war went on. The Voltron teams continued together, missing a vital piece but determined.
then he was back. Just like that. Ginger’s excited voice over her
comm the second Lisa’s far scouting mission was over, brook fast,
bubbling, jumping, alive with the news and Lisa… Lisa didn’t feel
anything. The silence she’d surrounded her heart with didn’t shudder or stir, didn’t move aside or and the ripple the news caused faded back into that black water.
She had been born in the cold empty swallowing darkness of the moon’s
exposed sky. It was familiar. More familiar to her than any Earth sun,
protected and safe and colored and warm.
It took her two days to get back to the Fleet. Two long days surrounded by empty space and utter silence. She’d dreamed, as long as she could remember, of dying this way, cut adrift and lost in the eternal emptiness between galaxies.
But - stars were born in that darkness too.
They updated her when she was close enough to the Fleet that transmissions wouldn’t give her position away in enemy territory anymore and she frowned over the reports, long legs folded up in front of her, pale hands on the data pad she’d transferred everything to, flipping back and forth between the two pages of information that told her so little about his return and his condition.
Quintessence still sounded like souls, to Lisa.
The soles of her boots barely touched the floor of the hanger and the halls of her home ship before she was back on her own ship and slipping back out again. Time enough for a wash and a quick change, info dumping her ship’s scans into the command port. She should give a real report, a live one but her excuse was that it was the night cycle onboard the ships and no one was awake. It was the night cycle onboard the castle ship as well, cruising in its place in the Fleet but Coran was up, he always seemed to be up, and she docked in the oversided bay, meant for lions, not thigh bones, ship small in comparison to all that empty space. She slipped out of her ship, one hand on its skin for strength and reassurance, even smaller and more out of place in the empty hollow that swallowed the sound of her steps as she finally left the familiar safety and strength of her ship and strode out of the hanger.
She knew where she was going and her steps caught, somewhere between wanting to run and the need to walk so she could buy herself a few last moments to gather herself back together. What hadn’t sunk through her two days ago was now, dark, deep ripples, painful and tight and she found herself in the arch of the medbay long before she was ready or the turmoil inside had settled. The lights were set low but not off and she turned down the small hallway, away from the healing pods, followed the guide lights set in the dimmed walls and her chest started a new sensation, aching like a giant hole. Keith was asleep in a chair near the door and she didn’t doubt he’d been there the two days she hadn’t. And then it was slipping sideways through the door that had been left half open so that she didn’t have to move or touch it and into a room with a dim white glow. And a glass-like wall that took up the entire length of it. Keeping her on this side. Away from the quarantine.
As silently as she’d entered, no sound came out now to announce herself with either.
Hi! I absolutely love your guides! About your "Everything You Need for Your First Apartment", wouldn't it be sensible also to buy a simple binder (at first)? There's just so much paperwork while moving that it's easy to lose it at first, until you actually know how to file it properly. Have a nice day!
A binder is a great idea to keep all of your important documents in one place. When I got my first apartment, the landlord gave me everything in an overside manila envelope and I kept everything in that for a really long time. What I have now is an accordion file folder, which holds all of my documents in nicely labeled tabs.
Whatever your choice, keeping everything organized in a single location is highly recommended.
top five comics/graphic novels/web-comics (feel free to stick to one thing I just wanted to make sure you had options in case you didn't read one or the other lol)
5. Jimmy Corrigan: the smartest kid on Earth by Chris Ware
(this is one of those graphic novels that shows up on all the “most influential” lists but I only read it for the first time this year. It’s super weird and nonlinear and it tickled my brain in just the right way)
4. Bone by Jeff Smith
(a fun high fantasy adventure that’s super cute and goofy until it ABSOLUTELY ISN’T, DEAR LORD PEOPLE ARE DYING)
3. Vattu by Evan Dahm (the only way I can describe this is “surreal fantasy with more thought put into every page than I’ve ever put into anything.” This is actually the third series in his Overside comics but you don’t need to read them in order)
2. The Last Halloween by Abby Howard
(Another one I didn’t start reading until this year. It’s Halloween and everyone’s getting eaten alive by monsters. There’s a wereoppossum named banjo. I love it)
1. He Is a Good Boy by K. C. Green
(An acorn tries to take control of his life. It’s very NSFW.)
