ray by beams

Rainy days here go on and on…🌧 It’s nice and chilly so yay layers, but I can’t wear any too long layers or the bottom hem will be soaking wet all day…🤔 I’m hoping this green dress is just the right length today to keep me not just warm but dry as well! Green dress: earth music and ecology / White dress: Ray Beams / Sweater: SM2 / necklace and belt: thrifted / Socks: Daiso 😏

Halfway (Lin-Manuel x Reader)

Summary: You and Lin are extremely domestic, but not dating. Lin asks you to move in with him anyways.
Low-key inspired by this quote:
“Date someone who meets you halfway. Date someone who brings you a glass a water when they get themselves one. Date someone who makes sure you don’t spend money on ridiculous things. Date someone your ex hates and your mom loves. Date someone who’d rather spend a Friday night watching movies, than out with 50 people they barely even talk to. Date someone who sleeps on your chest and leaves a little puddle of drool. Don’t date someone who makes you leave oceans of tears.”

Word Count: 1,203

Warnings: Cheesy ending? Mentions of jazz? I’m not sure. 

A/N: Hi! I’m back at it again. Never in a million years did I think I’d ever get a single note on any of my writing, so the fact that I did get notes just has me over the moon. I might have a few fics already planned out because I have a free weekend and zero chill?

Side note: If you don’t know who Miles Davis is and have the time you should watch the movie Miles Ahead. Guy was wack.

“Cariña,” Lin softly called out to you, drawing your attention away from your notebook. You looked up to see him offering you a glass of water and you were suddenly aware of how dry your throat was. You had spent a considerable amount of time with your only form of communication being the words you were scrawling across the pages of your notebook. You dropped your pen into the pages and set it aside, flexing your hand before accepting the glass with a grateful smile.

“Thank you, love.” you cooed back, taking a large drink. You set it on the edge of his desk that was only a few feet away from the window seat you were currently sitting in. He sat at his desk, flipping open his laptop, the screen illuminating his face in a way that the diminishing sunlight had ceased to do hours ago. This was your usual spot, Lin working away at his desk while you sat in the window overlooking New York. Your eyes had been drawn back to the pages causing you to miss the way Lin looked up at you, admiring the curve of your lips and the glint of your eyes as your mind seemed to pick right back up where your pen had previously stopped. There was a time when you had used to move straight out of his line of vision the moment he sat down at his desk, much to his dismay. It took a couple of weeks until Lin finally got the nerve to tell you to stay where you were and it had been your designated space ever since.

Alright, so I see this a lot in fics, where Sunstreaker treats Sideswipe like shite in public. He’s rude, mean, and just generally a grumpy arsehole while Sideswipe is a beaming ray of devious Sunshine, but like, imagine where they’re both just fucking chill around each other.

They’re /twins/

With a bond deeper than any human twins have.

They probably joke in public, laugh at things that other bots don’t get cause it’s their own personal inside joke or a twin thing.

Gimmie something where Sunstreaker doesn’t care if Sideswipe touches him or bumps his shoulder in public.

Who runs and jumps on Sunstreaker’s back, and Sunstreaker catches him without a problem.

Then carries him around until someone in command tells them off.

Or they snicker and talk too much during monitor duty, until they get too loud and have to be separated like some 12 year olds in school.

And they still cast each other looks and make faces.

Gimme happy Sunstreaker who may be grumpy around others, but loves his twin, and loves hanging out with him.

They do everything together, and it’s not just grumpy Sunstreaker reluctantly tagging along, its equally ecstatic Sunstreaker who wants to go do stuff with his twin.

Give me Sunstreaker who beams at his twin but then scowls at anyone else.

Gimmie twins who sling their arms around each other, hug each other and rest their heads on top of each other in public.

Gimme lambo twins who didn’t get much of a childhood before the war, and despite all the fighting they have to do, still try and have fun together, and live the life they missed out on.

The camera obscura was an important scientific discovery back in ancient times. It helped us understand that light travels in straight lines, as eloquently demonstrated by 11th-century Arab scientist Alhazen. He discovered that a single ray of light beaming through a tent produced an inverted image of the scene outside.

You can recreate the revolutionary experiment yourself with a window, some cardboard, and a hole-poking device of your choice. We recommend a trident, as we always do.

Slap some cardboard slabs over the window and cover all other light sources, then jab a hole in the cardboard (you can make it smoother or rougher to adjust resolution):

Wait for your eyes to adjust and enjoy the free acid trip. Your room is now a rudimentary camera, generating an inverted image of the scary world outside. It’s reversed because the light beams reflecting from higher objects like trees or buildings travel down diagonally through the makeshift lens, and vice versa for objects down below.
