“Is that him?” you mumbled to your coworker Liz as you emerged from your room to the front desk, watching the man that paced back and forth in front of the parlor.

You could always spot the first-timers the instant you looked at them. You could sense the excitement and nervousness rolling off them in waves, their bodies tense from the anticipation of the ink that would soon permanently mark their skin.

But him?

It was more like a tsunami of emotions, crashing and tumbling over his body as he questioned his decision to get a tattoo. You felt it before you even stepped foot into the same room as him.

“It’s so unfair that you always get the cute ones,” Liz whispered as she handed you his paperwork. She had an appointment in ten minutes, and with the piece being a fairly large and intricate one, she passed him off to you.

You rolled your eyes, ignoring her comment and scanned his papers, noting his name and birthdate. “Lin?” you called.

He spun on his heel at his name, his swift steps having him in front of the desk within seconds. “Hi, yes, that’s me,” he answered quickly.

You inwardly sighed, knowing exactly what kind of patron he was going to be: the spazz that spoke too much, asked too many questions, and would hold his breath until he turned blue. “My name is Y/N and I’ll be with you today. What kind of tattoo would you like Lin?” you asked, watching as he nervously drummed his fingers against the counter.

His eyes widened, looking at you disbelievingly. “You’re the one giving me the tattoo?”

The neck cramp that you got when you handled frustrating customers reared its ugly head. “Yes. This is a fairly small tattoo shop and you just happened to come in last minute, without an appointment…” you said slowly, narrowing your eyes and challenging him to say anything further.

“I didn’t expect someone that looked like you to give me a tattoo. I’ve always pictured a big, burly man and not a beautiful woman that…” Lin trailed off, sighing when he realized what an ass he must have sounded, “I’m just going to shut up now. Sorry.”

please read and pass along so queen Vic sees it and comments on it/ reblogs (part one)

okay y'all. im goons try to keep this short. over a year ago, i began reading red queen. it was by far one of the best days of my life. im writing this for three reasons. one, i want queen v to see it and know just how much she means to me. two, today i got scared. i got really scared that one day red queen will no longer make me feel the intense love i feel now. three, i had this dream that i was a number one nyt bestselling author and me and queen vic went to go have lunch. queen vic if you read this hmu. i know some pretty gucci restaurants in ri. haha. 😂 okay so back to the beginning of the story, i was walking around bn before gs came out and i saw this book … with the most gorgeous cover i have ever seen. and then i read the back. i instantly connected with this book. i loved it so so much and i hadn’t even read it yet. my depression and anxiety were so bad at this point and i had already started cutting. so then i started reading this book, it was AMAZING. i just felt this connection with mare, as if she were real and i could just talk to her. and i felt so … not alone for the first time in a long time. it was this unimaginable love. it made my heart hurt in the best way possible. glass sword came out by the time i finished reading it. i was so so in love. ask anyone, there is not a day have gone without having a conniption at least one since i started reading it. so the next year was really hard. the arrival of kc kept me going. during that year, I MET VICTORIA AVEYARD in east long meadow at kidly winks in June of 2016. IT WAS LITERALLY THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE. it was the most personal thing to me so im not gonna describe what happened other than HOLY SHIT. I WAS ON CLOUD NINE ☁️ FOR WEEKS. she was just so amazing. idek what to say. after we left the store, I cried. and honestly i miss her sm. i gave her a million hugs and was honestly an awkward but. i hope she didn’t judge too much. it was great. we hugged, complemented each other, our moms talked to each other. I STILL can’t get over it, but quite a while after that, things got so bad that i couldn’t function anymore. i was NEVER happy. i hid my rq books because i didn’t want to see them and have them lose their meaning in this dark time. so, then i was admitted to bradley, a children’s psychiatric hospital, an intensive outpatient program. the first day i was there i was determined to die. i said i would kill myself before kc because i waited so long and came so far, i just had to make it until then, right? wrong. so while i was in Bradley, i was happy for the first time in a while, but not until kc came out. everyone there, even my psychiatrist said it helped immensely with my recovery. everyone told me i look so much happier. even in that hellhole they call school. my mom said that i was the happiest she had seen me in a long time. my best friend the hope, the sparkle in my eyes was back. it made me realize how much i love some of the things in this world. when i left Bradley, everyone said i was the red queen and positive messages about how strong i was like mare. I still carry those letters around because there still are low points. they never just go away. but now there’s a difference. im happy. i have hope. for that, i am immensely grateful. i love you so so much queen vic. and let me just say, i absolutely support the end of kc. of course im sad, but i understand that as an author sometimes ya gotta do whatcha gotta do. and just like kc gave me hope in my life, i have hope and faith in queen vic and what you do with rq4. stop hating on her y'all. again, i just want to say thank you and *anxiety takes over* please don’t think im crazy. (Btw just thought of this, im gonna post some pics right after bc idk how to put them in here) i just want you to know this because you deserve to and honestly, it was helpful for me to put it all down and not try to cram it into you’re ask box in a few asks as possible. again, thanks and love you. ❤️ @vaveyard

I saw this tiny freshman boy on the train today reading Crown of Midnight after school, and I said to him “One of the best series ever am I right” and the kid nodded enthusiastically and said “It really is”. After that all I thought about was that, this poor kid has no idea what kind of pain he is coming into once he finishes this book. So pure and innocent. 

anonymous asked:

Dan's grama?? Enlighten me plz

dans grandma is basically the best grandma ever she’s been watching dans videos for years and she called dan in 2012 and talked about how much she related to his videos and today she called him to ask if he saw a comment on one of his videos that said “queen of my vagina” . i love dans grandma

In my eyes there is no other femslash pairing that has the potential and compatibility, emotionally and physically, that SQ does. I loved Clexa, they came really close and Rizzles was another one. I also like Bechloe.

But there is something about Emma & Regina that has not left me alone since I saw their “magic” and joined this ship. I doubt I will ever ship as hard and love as much a pairing as I do with Swan Queen.

They are TRULY my “OTP”.

I still believe in Swendgame and, whatever happens, I’m sticking with this ship to the very end - I’ll go down with it if I have to - because to me, they are worth it. 😊🌈❤✨

Musketeers AU – The Inseparables

Athos, Porthos, and Aramis were Queen regnant Louise’s most trusted musketeers, and known in the regiment as The Inseparables because you rarely saw one without the others.

Athos, who came from the nobility, but with a past which haunted her and that she unsuccessfully tired to drink away. Porthos, who grew up in the Court of Miracles, and had fought for everything she’d ever got. Aramis, a nobleman’s bastard, constantly torn between her skills, her lust and her faith. 

Their true names were known by no one but themselves, but in each other they all found something they had never really had before: family, loyalty, and love.

All for One, and One for All.

All the Team Bosses as Chickens

(Because why not)

Giovanni: Black Minorca

Maxie: Brown Red Old English Bantam (I owned these and they are feisty hot-headed birds. They are mostly all bark though honestly.) 

Archie: Random Water Chicken (though this one looks like an Rhode Island Red)

Cyrus: Silver Sebright

Ghetsis: Araucana (I had one and he was the meanest rooster I ever had!)

Lysandre: Buff-Laced Polish

Lusamine: White D’ Anver (These birds were quite popular at shows where I live and I always saw them as beauty queens.)

Guzma: White Silkie (look at that lovely poof.)

Dina’s Fun Aunt Holiday Bonus Part 3 – Ellen Thwoorp

Summary – There’s nothing like a day out when you’re on holiday, whether it’s to the Dinosaur museum or the local market, things are learned, jokes are made and the subject marriage is brought up a little more than Katya may have initially appreciated.

A/N: So this is back. Sorry it’s been a long time but since the last update I’ve fallen in and out of an unrequited love, electric shuffled in and out of the closet, become a bio queen and designed one of the most complicated final major projects my tutors have ever seen so… Hi again. Woop woop.

I would just like to say that all in all, this season has been an epic disappointment that consisted of:

Too little Captain Swan (like they moved in together give me cute moments!!!!!)

Too much Regina/Evil Queen (yes both of them), 

And waaaaay too much Rumple (just existing and threatening Belle).

We also saw the birth of Golden Queen, which was something no one ever needed.

The Practical Uses Of Slug Spit (Wonwoo x Mingyu Hogwarts AU Smut)

Summary: In all the drama their years at Hogwarts held for them, Mingyu and Wonwoo liked to… fly under the radar. They preferred to have their lives play out in private. All the deep discussions, chocolate sweet kisses, and cheek-pinking moments. Hogwarts AU. Boy x boy. Smut. 

(A/N: okay so i am the queen of getting carried away. i saw this prompt and i felt so inspired, i wanted to write something about it. i originally intended this just to be a little blurb but then it shaped up in my head and as i was writing it, it grew past a thousand words and it came to be a full blown scenario. a short one, but still. this is probably the fastest i’ve ever written something like this, and i honestly think this is the first piece on the blog with absolutely no reader character. but i still hope you all enjoy it. i really really enjoyed whipping this up quick, and i think it helped to get me back in the swing of writing all the time. plus, meanie is one of my favourite ships from seventeen. and i always love going crazy with my hogwarts aus. warnings for: extreme fluff, smut, gay smut, gayness, nutella, a brief jun cameo, and yeah. enjoy. -Tanisha<3)

“You’re in my spot.”

Olicity Holiday Project: Dec. 1 - One thing Oliver loves about Felicity

If there’s one thing that Oliver loves about Felicity it’s her strength. There’s been more than one occasion where he is simply awed by both her physical and mental strength. Ever since the beginning she’s showed him she’s one tough cookie. She never took his shit. When he tried to play charming Ollie Queen or intimidating Hood, she saw through his lies and she didn’t back down. He loves that about her. He knew she was strong enough to take the cure in season 2 and shove it right into Slade. He was surprised when Felicity used a large gun to defend herself and Curtis, surprised, but still in a such a state of “Wow this is my girlfriend. The strongest woman I know.” He was awed by her when she was lying in the hospital after being shot and paralyzed.

“How did you get to be so strong?”

How can you be strong enough to say no to running away and push me to fight? How can you, after all of this has happened, still have a smile on your face? How can you be strong enough to still want me and not be angry with me after I made you think that I didn’t want you? How? 

Oliver Queen loves Felicity’s strength and isn’t afraid to lean on her when he isn’t feeling strong.

I was a singer, not a very popular one, who once had dreams of becoming a beautiful poet - but upon an unfortunate series of events saw those dreams dashed and divided like a million stars in the night sky that I wished on over and over again - sparkling and broken. But I really didn’t mind because I knew that it takes getting everything you ever wanted and then losing it to know what true freedom is.

A/N: Now this is something that has been a long time coming, finally saw the movie and got inspired! When I first started writing this it was only going to be a short at max 500-word drabble, as you can see I went over that just the slightest bit. I want to put a giant thank you out there to one of the Boomerang Queens herself, @felyneve90 . She helped me quite a bit with Boomer’s accent and dialogue and was also patient when listening to me ramble and bitch, like usual. I’m gonna be completely honest real quick when I started writing this I had no clue what I was doing (still don’t) or if I was even going to post this so yeah. Thank you for your help Girlie!

There is one more thing I wanna point out real quick, I left this as an open interpretation of which Captian Boomerang this is, Owen Mercer or George Harkness. I personally see this more as Owen, I saw the Boomerang in the movie as Owen even if it was technically George. But with that being said it does take place in the movies timeline…. So whether it be one or the other is up to you. But yeah that’s about it, please enjoy and let me know what you thought! -Lauren


You watched as the burly man scooped up the small diamonds with, of all things, a mini vacuum, disbelief written across your face as you stopped everything you were doing to watch him.  

“Are you serious?” You finally blurted after a few more seconds of just staring at him. He looked up at you with confusion, surprised that you were even addressing him. He followed your gaze down to where he was sucking up the jewels and a smug smile began to grow across his face, the gold tooth in his mouth shining in the dim light of the vault.

“Wha’s a mattah, darl’? Gotta problem?” He snickered as he moved on to the next drawer after every diamond was in his possession, the look of pure joy that crossed his face as he eyed the assortment of jewels laying loosely was a little shocking. It was as if someone had offered a small child a million dollars which in all honesty was pretty much what had just happened, god knows how much that was all worth.

“Don’t call me that.” You snapped momentarily getting over the shock of watching the oh so infamous robber literally use a vacuum to collect his goods. “And yeah I do, are you really using that?”

“Gotta bettah idea?” Was all he replied with that smile still plastered across his face as he focused his attention away from you and back to the task at hand.

“Yeah, I can think of a few things a little classier.” You rolled your eyes at him as you made your way over to the vast wall of lockers that the man was raiding.

“Sweetheart we’re bank robbahs. Classy ain’t our thing.” Was all he chuckled.

“Speak for yourself.” You quipped, making sure to over enunciate your words in mock of his thick accent. “And don’t call me that either.”  

It didn’t take long to realize that he had beaten you to emptying out the majority of the lockers and frustration bubbled through you. This was supposed to be your heist, not his. He wasn’t even supposed to be here, yet there he stood whistling to himself without a care in the world as he took what should have belonged to you. The man, Captain Boomerang, wasn’t your partner, hell the two of you didn’t even run in the same circles. The only thing that connected you was both of yours disposition to money and anything shiny, along with the tendency the two of you shared to feel the need to rob any bank or jewelry store you set your eyes on.

You had bumped into him a few times before on different heists, as you both jumped from crew to crew. You had made it very clear the first time you had both shown up to the same bank one night with your respective gangs of idiotic helpers, that Gotham city was yours. Just like how he had robbed every bank in Australia you had hit every bank, credit union, and trust company here in New York, and Gotham especially was your turf, the banks there practically left their doors unlocked for you out of fear.
