“do you really need all those sweets?” (i changed it from candy because candy is very american lol)
Aaron raised an eyebrow as Robert put another bag of jellies into their basket, adding to the mess of chocolate and crisps. They’d gone into Hotten to go to the big Tesco there, stocking up for a lazy Friday night in.
“Do you really need all those sweets?” he asked, the slab of beer he was carting around starting to feel a bit too heavy, his arms aching. They’d been in Leeds for a couple of meetings that afternoon, and Aaron was feeling more than uncomfortable in his suit as they wandered the supermarket.
Robert nodded. “If we’re having a lazy weekend in, I want sugar.”
“You remember last time you ate that amount of sugar you were too sick to move for about a day?”
“Well, I’ve got plans for you tonight Mr Dingle.” Aaron smirked, looking at the basket. “And that second bag of jellies might put a spanner in the works.”
Robert’s eyes darkened, and he chucked the sweets back on the shelf. “Lets go then.”
Aaron grinned, delighted his plan to get Robert to leave Tesco quickly worked. A little more bribery, and he’d have Robert cooking dinner without so much of a protest.
He loved how easy it was to push Robert’s buttons sometimes.
The end of the lil’ coda-sequel made me cackle and involved Ganondorf scooping Zelda up ‘to perch on his shoulder like a finch’ and that image was TOO CUTE. Also there’s the implication that he’s going to teach her to be very sneakily seditious and not get in trouble next time and I just.
I really wish there was more, but as it is, I’m delighted and needed to Draw A Thing because authors who make me giggle myself out of the grumps deserve fanart.
Since there’s a guitar in Even’s room I assume he can play. Therefore I need a scene with him and Isak where he plays ‘I’m yours’ and first Isak is mad but it’s too hard to stay pissed at Even because he can’t sing for shit

As much as I like the “reyes snap out of talon mind control because of morrison” trop in fic I really really like the “ reyes snap out of talon mind control because mcree and genji got themself into a deadly situation and gabriel is not about to let his adoptive sons died “
you look absolutely delicious all wet and rumpled. Your hands are the most beautiful ones I ever saw. All slender, with delicate fingers and so long. And I’d love to lick that throat of yours. Touch that bulging vein with my tongue. You are sexy beyond description and make me think about debauchery things. My mind wanders to places that make me equally wet as you are. You are really filthy and dirty. And I don’t mean that in a good way. The mud is coming of in pieces from your skin. Please take a bath in something else than wine or ale. I’d help you with that.
Sent to me by my great-uncle, who is a priest. A friend of his sent him this letter they wrote.
The unthinkable has come to pass and we now find ourselves living in a country led by a person many have assessed as deeply harmful. His actions will be enabled by a Republican Senate and House, and in time, conservative Supreme Court. For many of us, this is a terrifying moment, as we consider the potential destructiveness of such a government both domestically and internationally.
The 2016 election has brought out the ugliest and most painful part of the American psyche, and for now, that fearful and hateful aspect of our culture is in control. The forces of reactivity, strengthened by the pace of demographic and social change that is so hard for humans to adapt to, roar and overtake reasonable discourse.
Although the American Dharma community is not politically homogeneous, those who take up the Buddhist path tend to envision a compassionate world based in racial equity, social justice, environmental healing, respect for women, inclusion, tolerance, and more. These values seem to be the opposite of those shortly assuming power in our government. It is hard to know, at times, how to love the haters, find tolerance for the intolerant. It tests our values of compassion to the very ends of it. But here is where we may find the potential for real practice, real spiritual challenge and depth. Though we don’t know what lies ahead for our country, let us count on these values and amplify them in our spiritual friendship with each other and our communities.
Over the next few days, some of you may experience many of the same feelings that one feels with despair and grief. At times, numb. Other times, angry. The mind will seek out whom to blame, including oneself. Fear, anxiety, and catastrophizing may all be states of mind that immobilize and even crush the will to do even the simplest things, like eat and shower.
Give yourself a huge amount of room to experience all of this, and take care not to get swept away by it. Know what you are feeling, and hold that with tenderness. And in the meantime, eat, go to work, carry on with your routines. It is in this time that being with friends physically, with ample of social interaction, can be soothing. Do not go online too much – it just uselessly whips up the energy and will leave you feeling drained. Go outside, get fresh air.
And perhaps the very best way to combat the intensity of dread is to help others. Do
something for someone less fortunate. Giving and caring is truly the best way to relieve anxiety. Hug the people who are distraught. Reach gently for the hand of a targeted “out-group” person – a person of color, immigrant, disabled person, person of a non-Christian religion, assaulted person – and let that person know you stand by them and will do everything you can to work toward a society that is safe, caring, and kind for all its citizens and guests.
A historic moment like this can shake us from complacency and cause us to awaken to the interconnection of our lives with all life. This is the potential. For now, take some time to get your bearings, while keeping the long-term vision in mind.
