pleasingly plump

Different

Pure fluff, and a warning for mentions of childbirth for the squickable, for both the ‘If’ prompt, and the First Kiss prompt for May 16th of Sherlolly Appreciation Week 2017, with thanks to the creators of ‘Aspects of Love’ for the verse….

I want to be the first man you remember
I want to be the last one you forget
I want to be the one you’ll always turn to
I want to be the one you won’t regret…

This is for the #MomentOfWeaknessProject.  It was written really quickly so I’m sorry if there are any typos, and it was written by me, so it’s probably rubbish :/

You’d known Anthony since High School, when you’d both been in drama club - him on the stage, hamming it up; you behind it, painting scenery, ironing costumes, checking props.  To be honest, you’d only joined up because it was somewhere to go at break times and lunch times, away from the crowds, but you’d found a good group of people there, welcoming and non-judgemental. Anthony, the life and soul of the party, had brought you out of yourself and you’d been best friends ever since. People thought it was a real odd couple relationship – you so quiet, him so outgoing – but they didn’t know that he valued your seriousness to help with his emotions, or that when you were relaxed, you told hilarious and dirty jokes, or that you made Anthony laugh until he hurt.

CSJJ Day 8: Thirteen Seconds

“I hate you, but we kissed at midnight on New Year’s and now I can’t stop thinking about it" AU- Modern Setting without magic. Thanks to @csjanuaryjoy for including me in this! Read it here or on AO3. Onto the fic!


Emma Swan was not into Killian Jones.

She didn’t like his swagger, didn’t fall into his crystalline blue eyes, didn’t giggle in response to his jabs.

And she certainly, one-hundred-percent, did not want to kiss him at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve.

“Listen, love, you and I are the only two at the party without a partner,” Killian drawled, his sweet, Irish accent slurred slightly by the rum. They were seated together on the couch in Mary Margaret’s apartment, so close that every movement seemed to result in their brushing up against one another.

“And you’re buddy-buddy with my fuckin’ awful ex,” Emma spat back. “So it looks like we’re going to stay that way.”

Fat children will become fat adults.

One of my earliest memories was being in Kindergarten and looking down at my tummy saying “mommy I’m fat” to which she would reply, “You are not fat! You’re pleasingly plump!”

She herself was obese and chose not to change herself. So it was no surprise that she coddled me my whole life with terms like “pleasingly plump“ which is just a nice way of saying fat. Going to McDonalds was normal because she didn’t feel like cooking. It was normal for my dad to come home and eat a whole bag of Hershey Kisses (setting a wonderful example, no wonder he became diabetic later in life). This is what I grew up with. And because of that, because of irresponsible parenting I was a fat child who became a fat teenager and then a fat adult. 

I often wonder if I had been raised differently, would I have been obese? Would I have to struggle in my adult life to lose weight and become healthy?

Fat children will grow to become fat adults. Responsibility lies with the parents to make sure your child is healthy and knows about nutrition and the proper foods to eat and portions. If they don’t their child will struggle with their weight later down the road.

Don’t set your child up for failure.
