realist and the dreamer

She looked at him and said, “We’re all the same. We are all human. We all want to be successful and have jobs and spouses and families. And eventually, we will all die. We aren’t that different from each other.” He looked at her with an expression of disbelief. How can she believe that? Maybe he was just a dreamer and she was a realist and they saw the world in different ways, but he couldn’t believe they were all the same.
“But I am me and you are you and we are both made up of our own losses and triumphs, our happiness and sadness, our life struggles. And nothing is more beautiful than that thought. We are different, not by the way we look, but because we have all endured different battles. We have all overcome a different demon.” She was quiet as she thought about that. He had a point, and God he was beautiful when he spoke of something he was passionate about. She had always struggled with herself. Always so cautious to believe in anything that couldn’t be seen, like God or love. She saw the world in black and white. But this boy who had a fire in his heart, he made her see the world in color, and he made her want to believe in love.
There are dreamers and there are realist in the world. You’d think the dreamer would find the dreamers and the realist find the realist, but more often than not, the opposite is true. You see, the dreamers need the realist to keep them from soaring too close to the sun. And the realist? Well, without the dreamers, they might not ever get off the ground.

The Realist and the Dreamer

“There are dreamers and there are realists in this world. You’d think the dreamers would find the dreamers and the realists would find the realists, but more often than not the opposite is true. You see, the dreamers need the realists to keep them from soaring too close to the sun. And the realists, well without the dreamers, they might not ever get off the ground.” - Cameron Tucker

Prompt #12: "Your eyes are like the stars."

Look at how early I’m writing today

Will was a sensible person. He was a dreamer, sure, but he was also a realist. While he dreamed of saving every life that came through the hospital doors, he knew that, realistically, he couldn’t. Some people were just too far gone by time they came through the sliding doors. Will knew that things weren’t always as great as they could be, but he chose to be optimistic. It went with being sensible. Well, maybe it went more with the dreamer portion of his personality, but Will kept an upbeat attitude as often as possible. It was just part of who Will was.

It was the part of Will that Nico often said was his favorite. The part that let Will get his head lost in thought staring up at the clouds, or forcing Nico to go on a walk at the crack of dawn. The part that loved looking up at the sky and dreaming of what it was like to be among the stars.

It would make Nico laugh fondly before smiling at Will with love-sick eyes. Will tried to let that part of him shine through as often as possible if Nico was always going to flash those eyes as him. How Will loved Nico’s eyes.

“Will?” Nico’s frown was evident in his voice as he called out Will’s name, and Will blushed at making his boyfriend worry. He hated worrying Nico, hated to see those lines appear when Nico creased his brow, but he knew that this was more curiosity then worry. Nico must have asked a question, and since Will had zoned out, Will hadn’t answered.

“I’m here, baby,” Nico’s smile at Will’s response lit up the entire sky, causing Will to smile as well. He had never been able to not smile when Nico’s grinned like Will had just answered all of life’s questions. Nico laced their fingers together, letting them rest between their bodies on the cool grass that they were laying on.

“What’re you thinking about?” Nico asked softly. He was more restless tonight then usual, and he sat up before resting his chin on Will’s chest, his brown eyes soft as that grin still played at his lips. Will had to take a moment to calm his beating heart as Nico looked at him. Will felt a laugh bubbling up his throat and he let his head fall back onto the grass, letting the laugh fill the space between them.

When Will closed his eyes, those beautiful brown eyes flecked with gold were staring at him with mirth, and Will felt himself grin. How could anyone ever say no to those eyes? It was no wonder Nico always got whatever he wanted from Will. All he had to do was look at him. When Will opened his eyes, he saw the stars above them, constellations twinkling with secrets whispered to them since the dawn of time. Will often dreamed about the secrets they held. The secrets of the universe whispered into his ears as those eyes looked down at him.

“Your eyes are like the stars,” Will whispered quietly. He didn’t elaborate, because for Nico, it was enough. Warm lips met Will’s own in a soft kiss, and Will dreamed of this.

I apologize if your asks are not open...but I had a meta question about Yakov and the last chapter of Winter...He seems to be warming up to Yuuri. So I was wondering if it isn't too spoliery where he stands currently on the "Not really impressed /He is my adorable son in law" scale? What is he feeling right now as of this latest chapter about Yuuri? (I love Yakov and I am just curious.) <3 As always I love your work. Hugs!

I love Yakov as well! (And yes, I reopened my Asks.) :)

In my Winter Song head-canon, Yakov is basically Victor’s father. Like any parent, Yakov is looking speculatively at his future son-in-law and is wondering if Yuuri is the right person for Victor. It’s protectiveness. Not dislike.

Keep in mind that Victor dropped his skating career (and his coach) to go running after Yuuri - and Yakov did not like that one little bit. But he also sees the positive change in Victor and that Yuuri is encouraging him in the right direction.

At this point in the story, Yakov is waiting to cast judgment on Yuuri. He likes what he sees so far. After Yuuri told him “I would help Victor whether or not you coach me on the side”, Yakov’s opinion of him improved a lot. He’s seeing that Yuuri loves Victor just as much as he does.

I probably won’t cover too much of their future relationship in Russia, but I see Yakov taking Yuuri under his wing and becoming a secondary coach for him. He’ll do this because it takes some of the pressure off of Victor … but also because Yakov likes Yuuri and sees a great deal of promise in his skating. I also see Yuuri flourishing under the combined coaching skills of Victor (the dreamer) and Yakov (the realist).

Basically, I see Yakov as a huge softy. He’ll come to view Yuuri as another member of his family.

“There are dreamers and there are realists in this world. You would think the dreamers would find the dreamers and the realists would find the realists but more often than not, the opposite is true. You see the dreamers need the realists to keep them from soaring too close to the sun. And the realists… well, without the dreamers, they might not ever get off the ground.”

Growing Love - Part 1: Spark

Characters: Y/N Y/L/N, Jensen Ackles, Sebastian Smith (OMC), Jared Padalecki

Pairing: Jensen x Reader (sorta), Sebastian x Reader (not for long)

Warnings: Smut, break up, jerk ex, hormones, pregnancy, pregnant woman having sex (is that a warning?), oral (female receiving), unsafe sex, all the pregnancy cliches, semi nsfw pic under the cut     

Wordcount: 4300ish

A/N: This is a real people fic but it is an AU Mini Series. Jensen is a photographer, Jared owns a bar and Misha is a doctor. It is my first time writing a real people fic in AU so lets hope I don’t fall on my face completely here.

I didn’t write this chronologically as I usually do. I wrote everything that the narrator tells us first and build the story around that. The narrator’s story can be read without the actual story and the actual story can be read without the narration. The narrator only actually tell us the things in cursive, the rest is Jensen’s PoV ;) Again let’s hope I land on my feet with this one.

It is written for @avasmommy224’s Birthday Challenge and Jenn is a total sweetheart who let me make a series out if this. The prompt is in part 2 and the acquired smut is in part one, I reused the prompt partially in Part 3.

Thanks to sweet, awesome @blacktithe7 for betaing this for me.



I am gonna tell you a story about love. Not all loves starts with fireworks and love at first sight. Some start in an entirely different place. With friendship and support followed by completely unforeseen events. This is a story about that kind of love. A love that blossomed over time. A love that that you know in your heart of hearts will last.

Let me start at the beginning. Y/N Y/L/N was a girl that had lost her parents at a young age, but never her dreams or will to succeed in life. She wanted to be an author, but she knew it was a risky occupation. Instead of chasing her dreams head on, she had decided to work her way through college. She became a journalist and got a steady job at the Austin Gazette. This was where she met Jensen Ackles.

Jensen came from a loving family, but wasn’t without dreams of his own. Jensen wanted to be a photographer. He wanted to tell stories just like Y/N, but unlike her, he wanted to capture people’s hearts through pictures. Building a career in photography was no less hard than becoming a successful author, so even though Jensen never put his dreams on hold, like Y/N had chosen to do, he was forced to work part time for the paper to make ends meet.

Mercury in Pisces

“Without wonder and insight, acting is just a trade. With it, it becomes creation.”

-Bette Davis (1908-1989) Mercury in Pisces

Mercury is considered in fall in Pisces. Much like fellow Water sign Mercuries, Pisces Mercuries really take people’s feelings and thoughts into consideration. It affects them and they can almost come off as “psychic”. They are just all-knowing people and are extremely empathetic.

Mercury in Pisces isn’t known for going into details and analyzing; they’re dreamers. They aren’t realists, but more so idealists. They’re also very capable of tuning into the spiritual world. Spirituality is something that comes natural to them or is something that interests them, especially if Pisces is in a late degree. This is usually why they come off as being psychic to others; because of their deep intuition and ability to connect with people on an emotional/mental level.

People with their Mercury in Pisces are creative. Creativity is also something that comes natural to them and they generally gravitate towards the Arts. Either way, Pisces Mercury needs to have a creative outlet because they will really shine through. You let people rant their hearts out to you and sometimes it can overwhelm you because you naturally connect to people on an emotional level. You actually “feel” every single word that comes out of someone’s mouth and you absorb their energy like a sponge. You’re deeply intuitive, highly creative, and you have the capability of going into the deepest depth about things. Be careful to not push yourself too hard, Mercury in Pisces, because you know that this can ultimately overwhelm you.

You are capable of creating on such a massive scale, and it will take an ability on your part to let go of some of the details of what you’re living in order to tap in to that creative potential. It will take becoming more of a dreamer than a realist. It will take believing in magic, believing in miracles, and most importantly, believing in yourselves. If you were to see yourselves as we see you, and see the strength that we are aware of, you would fully embrace your creative potential and you would begin to construct a life for yourself that had absolutely no limitations placed upon it.
—  Excerpt from “Your Strength”, by The 9th Dimensional Arcturian Council, channeled by Daniel Scranton

anonymous asked:

What do you think is the worst element to lack in, in your chart?

I think it really depends on what the individual thinks is bad. Of course there are upsides as well

Lacking water can make someone less in tune with others’ emotions and sometimes their own

Lacking fire can make someone very mild, they could be less energetic and excited about things (in general)

Lacking earth can make someone less grounded or realistic and sometimes more of a day dreamer

Lacking air can make someone hard to detach themselves in situations and they can be too involved
