part 4: replacements

Replaceable Part 4!!

The team were frantic, especially Keith. “Why the absolute fuck, would he just give himself up??” They were all back at the castle, trying to find Lance’s coordinates. “Coran, are you finding anything? No princess! It appears the Blue paladin has deactivated their signal!” Shiro paced around the room, eyes wild. “Do we have any information where he could be or why the quiznak he sacrificed himself at the drop of a hat?!” Pidge rushed forward, stumbling slightly. “I don’t know if this will help anything, but remember when I installed new cameras in the castle? Maybe they caught something that will help us!” Keith picked her up and twirled her around. “Pidge, you’re a genius!! Let’s go find those tapes!” The team rushed to their newly installed camera room. Pidge jumped into the rolly chair, spinning and sliding herself right in front of the control panel, tapping away madly. “Okay, let’s start at the beginning of the week. If you see Lance doing anything unusual, tell me!” The team watched the screen as images flickered by, re-telling the memories of the week before. Allura pursed her lips. “Nothing seems out of the ordinary. You’ve got Pidge in the living quarters with her laptop, Shiro is with me, Hunk is in the kitchen, Keith is in the training room, and Coran appears to be working on our map-” “There!” The team sees Lance enter the room with Coran. “Coran, did you and Lance talk about anything?” Coran flushed and sheepishly rubbed the back of his neck. “Well, Lance was talking, but I was so focused on fixing the map, I didn’t really hear what he was saying. I apologized and asked him to tell me again, but he said it wasn’t important.” “Pidge, let’s just watch and see what he was saying. It may help us solve this mess.”

“Am I…replaceable?” They watched Lance pause. “…Coran?” “Oh, I’m sorry my boy! I guess a got a little too distracted with the map. What were you saying? I’m afraid I missed it.” “It’s okay, Coran. It was nothing important anyways.” The team gawked in horror as they watched Lance walk to his room, tears streaming down his face. Coran wasn’t in much better shape. His face was pale with guilt, running his fingers through his hair. “H-he trusted me with his inner most thoughts and emotions..and I just cast him aside like it was nothing.” Allura rest a hand on his shoulder. “It’s alright Coran. You didn’t mean for-” “Shit.” The team turned to Keith. “Keith..?” Keith’s head was lowered and he was slightly shaking. “Shit. Shit. SHIT!” “Keith!!” Keith snapped his head up, tears spilling from his eyes, drilling to the floor. “Pidge, turn the cameras to yesterday back where I yelled at Lance during that meeting!” Pidge gave Keith and nod and did as such. The team watched as Keith repeated the harsh words he spoke to Lance, this time flinching with every insult that was thrown. The tears from Keith’s eyes spilled faster as he clenched his hands. “All those things I said to him. It just confirmed what he was thinking about himself. I made him think that I didn’t care about him, that I hated him, but that couldn’t be farther away from the truth.” “Pidge?” Allura spoke softly. “Can you show us where Lance went after that?” Pidge gave her a grim nod and took them to the camera in Lance’s room. Hunk and Pidge began to lightly cry as they watched the camera. They miserably watched as Lance began to sob, chocking on gasps, and watching him fight for consciousness. As Lance began to crawl to his bed, Keith let a broken, “Cut it off, please. I-I can’t watch anymore.” The team stared at the now black screen. Hunk was now fully sobbing as Keith let silent tears fall from his cheeks. Shiro turned and started to walk out of the room. “Come on team. We created this mess, and now it’s time for us to fix it.” Shiro turned to face them, jaw clenched. “Let’s bring back our teammate.”

Walls Built- A Sirius Black Imagine (Part 6 of Alone Together)

A/N: I know I said that this would be up some time last night and I swear I had it ready to go. But then, I was doing my last reread and decided to go in a different direction. I think this one is better, albeit much more sad. This chapter also hit a bit too close to home as I wrote a lot of what I’ve been feeling lately into this. Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy and I promise that it won’t be sad forever! Things will start to look up soon! (Hopefully (: )

As you walked into Potions, you shivered with a groan. Another day you forgot your jumper. You actually had it too, but Lily was rushing you so much that you forgot it on your bed. Now you’d have to suffer through the cold lesson and Remus’ teasing.

“Morning Y/N.” Remus smiled as he sat down next to you. His arm reached out and ruffled your hair slightly, then set a delicious looking pumpkin pasty in front of you. He looked surprisingly pleasant and chipper this morning; you thought he’d be more fatigued as the full moon passed just four days prior. It usually took Remus a full week to get back to his usual self, and you looked at him curiously.

“What are you up to?” You asked, eyeing him suspiciously.

Practice good sewing habits, and you will see it in the final product. [Part 4]

Replace your machine needles often, and as necessary. 

Needles wear down. That fine point takes wear and tear every time it punctures fabric, doubly so on thick, tight weaves. So if a needle has been in use for a few hours (combined), then it won’t be as sharp or fine as it was before. Eventually, dull needles start to catch fibers in the fabric and tug them. You’ll create runs in finer fabrics and you’ll break needles in thicker fabrics.

Cheap needles also warp over time. If you hear a click-click-click every time your needle goes down, it may be a slightly bent needle tapping the plate every time, or catching in the fabric and bending to touch parts of the machine as it goes down.

You also need to change needles for different fabrics. A “universal” needle is only universal in that it has a generic style of point; they still vary in size, usually from 60/8 to 110/18, with the smaller numbers being finer. You don’t want to be using a thick needle on a very fine fabric, and you don’t want to be using a fine needle on a very thick fabric. Using the right needle for the job will keep your stitches neat, your fabric smooth/unsnagged, and your headaches to a minimum.

There’s also consideration for different types of fabrics; stretch/ballpoint needles are great for knits, leather needles have a knife-like tip that makes it easier to pierce, and denim needles are durable for thick, heavy fabrics.

Besides, a fresh needle feels great. Be good to yourself, replace them often.
