drunk words are often tell the truth.

Fionn was sitting in his london flat watching a movie to cope with jetlag when his phone went off. He wasn’t sure who could be calling since it was almost 3:00am so he was quite surprised to read the caller ID out as your name. 

“Hello?” “Fionny!” your loud voice made him jump in his bed a bit, and he held his phone a little farther away from his ear before speaking, “Is everything alright, Y/N? Why are ye calling me at this hour?” “Ya know Fionn, I miss you, I really do and I wish you were here with me because I want another drink and no one will get me one but you always do!” Your rambling led Fionn to the realization that you were drunk in a bar somewhere, and it was quite obvious you wouldn’t be able to make it home.

“Y/N where are you?” Fionn asked, sitting up in his bed and pausing the tv. He kept his phone balanced on his shoulder as he listened to you ramble on about the poor service at the bar, as he hurriedly put on some sweats and a jumper. He repeated his question as he grabbed his keys and wallet before repeating the question. “I don’t know Fionn, some guy is asking me to go with him and he has a beard, you know I’ve always wanted to touch one..” Fionn’s heart sank as he immediately rushed out the door with his shoes half on and made his way to his car. “Jesus, Y/N love, please tell me where you are.” “Umm I think the bar near mine?” “I need you to stay where you are please, and if the guy doesn’t leave you alone go to the loo or something, just please don’t leave with him. I’m coming to get you okay? Stay there Y/N,” And with that, Fionn drove off to where you were as fast as he could.

Fionn pulled up in front of the bar to see you in front of it, repeatedly slapping your phone against your hand, as if to be looking for batteries, and sure enough he saw a bearded guy next to you, saying something but you clearly weren’t listening. As Fionn made his way over to you both he could make out parts of what the man was saying, “C’mon lass it’ll be fun, just come with me.” And before he could grab your arm, you locked eyes with Fionn.

“Fionny baby! You’re here!” You squealed and stumbled over to him, wrapping your arms lazily around his neck. You turned back to the bearded man, “Sorry, I have to go with my handsome Fionny but I like your beard!” You giggled as you turned back to Fionn who was feeling very relieved he got to you in time, and was finding your behavior very amusing. “C’mon, let’s get you home.”

After a lot of struggling Fionn finally managed to get you into the car safely, but the struggling didn’t end there. You had fallen asleep immediately after you got into the back seat, however when you arrived at his apartment parking lot, you were wide awake. Fionn opened the door and tried to get you out but instead he was pulled in by the collar of his jumper, and fell on top of you. The boy was immediately very flustered, and tried to move but your wrapped your legs around him. “There was a lot of room for me to sleep comfortably, I think theres enough space to do something else right Fionn?”

Fionn gulped as your batted your eyelashes, and he so desperately wanted to kiss you right then and there but he didn’t want to take advantage of you just because of the crush he’s had on you since the day you met. He awkwardly chuckled before pushing himself off of you, and you sat up with him. He tried to move away from the door, but you trapped him there by wrapping your legs around his waist, “C’mon Fionny, you may not have a beard but you have something else I wouldn’t mind touching” you winked at the end with a giggle, enjoying the teasing. Fionn froze at your statement and before he knew it, your fingers were underneath his jumper and shirt, trailing your fingers up his bare skin. “Fucking hell Y/N” he exhaled, breathing heavily.

Fionn quickly snapped out of his daze and pried himself away from you and quickly helped you out the car before locking it, and walking ahead of you into the apartment, with you closely following behind. At this point you weren’t drunk, but you weren’t sober. However you knew what you were doing. Fionn may have been your best friend, but you had feelings for him, both sexually and romantically, and the liquid courage from earlier was helping you act upon these feelings. You couldn’t lie, it turned you on immensely seeing his adam’s apple bob up and down as he licked his lips while listening to your words and responding to your more than straightforward actions. You knew that he was interested too, however Fionn was too sweet to do anything.

Once inside, Fionn made his way to the kitchen to get you some water. He looked behind him and shyly said, “Sit anywhere you like” and you cheekily responded, “how about you sit me on these counters and do whatever you like?” At this point, Fionn had lost all control, he was sweating as he was picturing the words you had just uttered. He had to rest his arms on the fridge handle to gain his composure before turning back to you and handing you the water. You drank down some of it before looking at Fionn, “Finish the whole cup Y/N, you’ll get dehydrated if you don’t.” 

Fionn spoke without eye contact, still shaken up from all of your teasing remarks throughout the night. He knew you were drunk, but surely by now you were sober enough to know and mean what you were saying? Nonetheless, Fionn wasn’t going to make a move, it was too risky. As if you read his mind, you took a few steps toward him, “I don’t want water Fionn, I want you.” Fionn looked down at you, eyes dark and hooded with lust, and he leaned with his hands behind his bum on the counter behind him, restraining himself from you. It was quite a difficult task, considering you still had your bar outfit on, and your hair was tousled from the car ride. 

You moved your hands underneath his shirt again, dragging your finger down from the top of his abs to the waistband of his boxers, smiling to yourself when you noticed Fionn taking deep breaths with his eyes closed. You tugged on the jumper, and almost had it over is head before Fionn realized what was going on and grabbed your hands. “No, no, not now love.” “Why not? Do you not want me Fionn?” He let out an exasperated sigh, “Of course I do, Y/N, I just don’t want you to regret this love.” “Nothing would make me regret this, I want you Fionn.” 

He looked into your eyes, and he knew it was you talking, not the alcohol. “You want me?” he whispered. You nodded, “100 percent” and with that Fionn crashed his lips onto yours. You immediately reacted, tilting your head in order to deepen the kiss. Fionn let go of your hands and instead reached for your hips, giving them a light squeeze. You slightly grinded into Fionn’s body that was pressed up against the counter, feeling him tense. You pulled away and kissed from behinds his ear, down to his collarbone and he let out a low groan at your actions. He kissed you once again roughly before grabbing underneath your thighs and lifting you, and making his way to the bedroom.

It was safe to say you were thankful for your drunk confidence when you woke up next to Fionn’s bare body and soft snores the morning after.

Sugar Lesson #1

Never do anything for a “promise”

Real daddies, for example, won’t tell you to shop and then they’ll “reimburse” you. Real daddies will give you cash to spoil yourself and think nothing of the “risk”. 

If he says it’s “too risky”, it’s safe to read that (9/10 times) as “I am not ready to invest in you”. 

Play it  close to the chest, and never ever compromise your own budgeting/financial goals/needs on a “promise” 


The sugar cube [who blew a check at the mall because new Daddy said “do it” and is now $70 in the hole because “Daddy” “forgot” to both reimburse and pay for the insurance……..]

Here are two of my fosters from a few years ago. Notice the black one (Twister) was still wearing her puppy mill chain collar when I took this photo.

These are the fosters I had to carry everywhere. They were terrified of everything. They drooled 24/7. It took them 48 hours to get the courage to pee at my house. I would carry them outside to potty and they would stand stock-still for more than an hour before they could muster up the courage to move.

Twister was much braver than Hurricane, the red male. I was lucky they were so sweet, because I had to do a lot of risky maneuvering (read: bite risk!!!) to get them from one place to another.


omfg perpetual manipulator worshippedlove is hard at work, this is so sad. I’ve been happy skipping a lot of the detailed analysis of their posts that i would have done a few months or a year ago, but whatever, I don’t want to let this mess rest. the “calm, rational” sounding nonsense always bothers me more.

I think the song lyrics printed in the interview that he has in his notebook (no clue if they’ll be in the album) are probably totally something that happened to him, but with one of his childhood girlfriends. I really don’t think, even if he actually was straight, that he’d be worried about what Anne would say about his girlfriend’s clothes, or that Anne would be judgemental about their clothes in the first place. I think he reproduced what his childlike brain was thinking at the time.

Here’s the song lyrics:

And promises are broken like a stitch is … I got splinters in my knuckles crawling ‘cross the floor/Couldn’t take you home to mother in a skirt that short/But I think that’s what I like about it … I see you gave him my old T-shirt, more of what was once mine


The bit about Taylor… he was respectful and the only ‘romantic’ bit I got from it was the first quote (after he came back from his extended toilet break, which lbr it was probably to gather his own thoughts on how to respond).

The rest of the quotes about her aren’t romantic at all. Particularly ‘I’m lucky if everything [we went through] helped create those songs’.

This bit:  ‘ And if you run into that person, maybe it’s awkward, maybe you have to get drunk … but you shared something. Meeting someone new, sharing those experiences, it’s the best shit ever. So thank you.’ not romantic at all.

Nothing romantic about having an impact on someone’s life and being honored to have inspired them!!! Nothing romantic about trying to focus on the shared joy of your experiences together when you meet again and it’s difficult!!! YOU HEAR? IT IS NOT ROMANTIC, LISTEN TO HER.

The quote that starts with ‘she’ and ends with ‘them’. I don’t have much to say other than what people have already said. I’m not sure if he used ‘she’ or if the interviewer changed it. I don’t think it really matters. I think that using ‘they’ for that whole quote would’ve been incredibly risky. Read it like that:

He notes a more recent relationship, possibly over now, but significant for the past few years. “They’re a huge part of the album,” says Styles. “Sometimes you want to tip the hat, and sometimes you just want to give them the whole cap …  and hope they know it’s just for them.”

That’s a semi-outing quote right there. Why would he use gender neutral pronouns for a relationship otherwise? I think it’s possible that he said ‘they’ throughout and that his PR team decided to ask the interviewer to change it to ‘she’ (and I think it’s possible that’s when the interviewer put the Kendall assumption in). I think he was talking about Louis and I think the assumption that it’s over is done by the interviewer.


Yeah but the actual quote, without you pretending it was changed by “his PR team” (which he’s not responsible for but he also is responsible for?) is, “'She’s a huge part of the album,’ says Styles. 'Sometimes you want to tip the hat, and sometimes you just want to give them the whole cap …  and hope they know it’s just for them.’”

The “she” refers to the specific person. The “they” refers to the more general situation and how different relationships leave you feeling. But sure, write 4 paragraphs about how he didn’t really say “she” at all probably and is basically outing himself because you know he didn’t say what he actually said and obviously would never mention an ending relationship, that was totally made up, because everything is about Louis all the time. Sure.

Blah blah blah, they’re also obsessed with Ben saying Harry lived with him for 20 months as if everyone will think he slept in the attic for 20 months worth of nights and only Larries will know it’s a lie, instead of every sensible person knowing that this means he mostly stayed with Ben in between touring and other travel for a span of 20 months. “Ben is lying, Harry is lying, Harry didn’t mean what he said, I know what he really means,” the post goes on.

“No part of HARRY’S interview got me upset tbh,” she says. Because she denied and ignored and rewrote every part she didn’t like. Funny how that works.

I love being horribly straightforward. I love sending reckless text messages (because how reckless can a form of digitized communication be?) and telling people I love them and telling people they are absolutely magical humans and I cannot believe they really exist. I love saying, Kiss me harder, and You’re a good person, and, You brighten my day. I live my life as straight-forward as possible.

Because one day, I might get hit by a bus.

Maybe it’s weird. Maybe it’s scary. Maybe it seems downright impossible to just be—to just let people know you want them, need them, feel like, in this very moment, you will die if you do not see them, hold them, touch them in some way whether its your feet on their thighs on the couch or your tongue in their mouth or your heart in their hands.

But there is nothing more beautiful than being desperate.

And there is nothing more risky than pretending not to care.

We are young and we are human and we are beautiful and we are not as in control as we think we are. We never know who needs us back. We never know the magic that can arise between ourselves and other humans.

We never know when the bus is coming.”

- Rachel C. Lewis

BTS When They Catch You Reading Risky Content GIF Reaction

BTS GIF Reaction to catching you reading risky content about another K-Pop group you like.

For this GIF Reaction you are a friend of the boys. For some assume they have a crush on you.

requested: yes

*causally glances over at your laptop and looks away only to whip his head back around to make sure he saw what he thought he saw*
“well okay then..” he would think to himself.

Jin. Would. Judge. You. So. Hard.
“I didn’t know you read that stuff Y/N!” *starts laughing uncontrollably*

“Hey Y/N, what are you reading-Y/N-AH WHAT THE HELL?!”

poor yoongi

“Y/N-ah this is like cheating on my band with EXO!”

so much j-nope on my laptop though this was hard to pick just one

Jimin would probably sneak a glance and not speak about it. being the self-conscious little fluff he is, he would most likely end up reading it himself to compare. oh and he would win the battle of who is sexier in his mind for sure.
“so you like it when kpop stars are in uniforms, huh?” *begins plotting*

Taehyung would be confused for a couple reasons here. first, what was happening in this damn kpop fanfic and second, why were you reading it?!
“really Y/N-ah?”

he might even ask one of the hyungs about something he saw. which he would most likely regret.

like Tae, he would be severely confused by some of the lingo..or would pretend to be ;-)
“but Y/N what does that mean?”

maybe he would even ask his hyung later before a dance practice like Tae

thank you for requesting anon this was really fun to make.

shoutout to my boo Caith for helping me out and making me not procrastinate (too much) on this post. 

{check her out here}

My books came in the mail! I haven’t had a book haul in a while, almost a year ago now, I think. Tell truth, I don’t often purchase books anymore unless I really enjoy something and want to be able to revisit it whenever I want to, or else the drive to collect kicks in (I’ve read but don’t own Mastiff by Tamora Pierce yet I do have both Terrier and Bloodhound, and the longer I stare at my bookshelf, the more I notice the place where the third book should be…). 

In the past couple years, I’ve been hitting up the library before bookstores (online and off). There are a few reasons for this, the principal one being that books cost money, which makes checking out a book you aren’t totally sold on but intrigued enough to consider reading very risky. My bookshelf has gotten pretty full as well, and I’m running out of terrible books I’m willing to cull (and I’m too lazy to get another bookshelf). I’m also trying to get more involved in my community, and libraries are a great place to start. They won’t get funding if people don’t go, and I can’t stress enough how important the service libraries bring to communities is, allowing free access to educational and entertainment media to anyone (as long as you pay taxes in your area).

Which is why, when I have finished with these books (and the books from my last haul), I will be donating them to my local library. I may not have the time to volunteer, but I can at least help provide some materials. 

I highly encourage people to check out their local library. Support your community, support authors, support the spread of information and ideas.


You’re probably familiar with honeybee-style pollination: bees enter flowers to drink sweet nectar, the accidentally pick up up pollen and then transfer it to another flower. But many plants rely on buzz-pollinators instead. Bumblebees repurpose their flight muscles to vibrate pollen loose:

The bee bites down at the base of the anther, leaving little marks called bee kisses. She “unhooks” her flying muscles from her wings so she can contract them without taking flight. Then she begins to vibrate violently, a behavior scientists call sonication.

The vibrations travel through her soft body to the flower and shake up the pollen grains trapped inside anthers. When she buzzes hard enough, the pollen shoots out of the top and covers the bee. The bumblebee grooms herself, combing the pollen down and mixing it with saliva. She stores the pollen in sacs stuck to her legs as she makes her rounds.

The bumblebees actually eat the pollen as a source of protein - so the flowers who partner with them are undertaking a risky evolutionary gamble. Read more about it here.

And watch Deep Look’s video about it here:

They use a tuning fork to mimic buzz pollination!
