Hey, so personalized Drabble, yeah? You know me girly but if you have any questions just ask. Dean, please :) how about me bringing home a bunch of puppies one day because I just couldn't resist. Anything else you feel inspired to include. Lotsa fluff please! :) you rock, Talia! 😘

Title: Too cute to resist

Pairing: Sydney x Dean

Warning(s): Cute fluff, swearing, Sam being overprotective of puppies

Word Count: 487 words

A/N: So. Tryna get back into the swing of things with a couple (horribly) overdue drabbles. Yikes. Wish me luck!


The first sign that something’s wrong is that it’s quiet.

Too quiet.

Dean frowns, a mix of suspicion and apprehension slithering up his spine. His hand reaches out blindly and closes around one of the Men of Letters’ archive books, a dusty old thing (not that he cares). He rounds the corner quickly, book raised and ready to strike at whoever tried to break in…

Or whatever, more like.

Sydney grins sheepishly, holding a squirming golden yellow ball of fur. Sam’s sitting next to her, with not one, but three puppies in his lap. All he can do is stare, trying to figure out why there were four puppies in the bunker.

“I can explain!” Sydney blurts, light pink dusting her pale cheeks, and a tuft of her blond hair (almost identical to the puppy’s too) falls across her face.  

“Wh- How- Why… What?” Is all Dean can manage. His brain is still trying to wrap around the concept of four – f o u r – puppies, in his safe haven. “Sam what the hell?” he demands, and Sydney makes a noise of protest, standing up with the puppy cradled in her arms.

Dean wants to protest, he should. Dogs were always more of Sam’s thing, not his. He doesn’t want to be cleaning fur out of his jacket, jeans, shirts, floor, out of Baby, all the damn time. He really should protest… but Sydney’s dark green eyes sparkled with hope, and her pout – damn that pout– makes his heart soften towards the pups.

“I picked them up in a box from the river,” she blurts, and Dean’s ripped from his introspective daydream about his girlfriend. Who’s currently puppy-eyeing him with a puppy. Rude.

“And….? Why are they here?” he asks, even though he already knows the answer (he’s hoping she won’t keep all four, but chances are slim).

“And I couldn’t leave Bailey, Sadie, Buffy and Bones all alone in the cold!” Sydney almost whines, and Dean knows he has no hope in hell of getting her to give up the dogs. She’s already freaking named them.

Sam laughs, letting the dogs crawl all over him while they explore their new territory. Dean can’t help but chuckle a little because they are kind of cute, and they are fluffy and–

“Oh my god I knew you’d love the puppies! This is Buffy,” Sydney giggles while Dean struggles not to accidentally drop and kill the small wriggling ball of fur suddenly plopped into his arms.

“Syd-babe- some help would be nice!” he yells, and Sydney picks the dog up effortlessly, watching as a now very disgruntled Dean brushes himself off. “Keep them outta my room,” he huffs, stomping off to take a shower.

(Dean totally lets Buffy into his room that night, because those two flailing seconds was enough for him to like that puppy over the others, and maybe they really are too cute to resist. Just Maybe.)

“Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience:                                                this is the ideal life.”


There have been times this year where books felt unnecessary due to the increasingly familiar dystopian aspects of our changing societies, however, escaping into the pages of a good book is also a very good solution to this madness and I couldn’t recommend it more myself. 


Although the spare time I have in my life has reduced this year due to graduating and finally entering the adult world of work (Booooooooo!!!) it does not mean that I have enjoyed reading any less. I’ve read fewer books this year but I’ve still read a lot of great books and competition for a spot on this list was tough. Every book on this list is one I would recommend you to read if you have not done so already, regardless of their position on the list each book is fantastic in their own right.  

When I first read passenger this year I was convinced it would top my list, however, it’s been a long time since I’ve been blown away by a book to the degree I was by A Court of Mist and Fury. I might not have liked The Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas, however, if this was The Great British Bake off ACOTAF is a stunning enough showstopper to still make her star baker and my favourite author of the year.


As always the list below shows my favourite quote from each book, links to more information and hashtags denoting key themes.

‘DOCTOR STRANGE’ REVIEW ROUND UP!

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER - “An engaging, smartly cast, eye popping addition to the studios bulging portfolio”

USA TODAY - “A kaleidoscope of weirdness and innovative visual effects successfully introduce the brilliantly bizarre Doctor Strange. This Doctor is down to leave you spellbound”

COMIC BOOK - “One of Marvel’s best movies to date

SCREENCRUSH - “There are times when Doctor Strange feels like a borderline remake of past Marvel hits, but at others it’s easily the studio’s most exciting spectacle to date”

VARIETY - “Marvel’s most satisfying superhero movie since ‘Spider-man 2″. From this second-tier side character, the studio has created a thrilling existential dilemma which dovetails beautifully with forays into the occult New Age realm of magic and sorcery where Doctor Strange ultimately finds his calling” - 8/10

THE DAILY BEAST - “More mature than its predecessors and the first blockbuster of the modern superhero era ideally viewed on a magic mushroom trip”

THE WRAP - “The performances are consistently engaging. This funny, freaky adventure reminds us of how effective VFX can be when they’ve got some imagination behind them”

DEN OF GEEK - “Its fearless approach to bringing the many weird dimensions that Strange traverses into the MCU emphasizes the studio’s complete confidence in both its material and its ability to sell these heady concepts to a mainstream audience” - 7/10

IGN - “This is a rather incredible cast and there are moments when it’s hard not to smile simply seeing these talented actors fully immerse themselves in the mystic part of the Marvel Universe. The other realms and accompanying visuals it brings into the MCU are fascinating and thrilling, with a lot of potential for the future” - 7.7/10

So gather round the ol’ anatomy book, kiddies! Auntie ScriptMedic is gonna teach you all about ABDOMINAL TRAUMA!

First, I am going to say this as loud and as hard as I can, so the people way in the back can hear me: ABDOMINAL WOUNDS ARE LIFE THREATS UNTIL PROVEN OTHERWISE. Yes, all of them. Yes, that one, too. I know what you were thinking. Still a life threat.

But why? Why is it so sensitive? Well….

Never Short of Love

Request: “Hi! I was wondering if you could write a Newt imagine where the reader is really short and it stresses Newt out cause she’s always getting bumped into and lost in crowds? You’re an amazing writer 😊 thank you!”

Pairing: Newt Scamander x Reader

Word Count: 1819

Warnings: None


“Newt!” You called out, pushing your body up as far as you could, but only receiving a cramp in your arm as a result.

“Yes, darling?” Newt rounded the corner, book in hand. When he saw your predicament, he leant on the doorway, chuckling softly. “Can’t reach the coffee tin again?”

“Why do you always put it on the top shelf?”

“Because,” he came over, grabbing the tin and handing it to you. “I like it when you have to ask me for help.”

You frowned at him. You were quite the independent person, so you absolutely hated it when you had to call upon others to help you with simple tasks. One day, you had in fact attempted to get the coffee tin on your own. Newt had come into the kitchen that day, after hearing a loud thump. You had fallen to the ground and received a broken ankle. After that day, Newt made you promise to him that you’d always ask for assistance when needed. You did, but you still loathed to do so.

“What are you reading?” You asked, continuing to make your coffee.

“How to Live with House Elves.” He replied showing the cover of the small brown book. “Thought it might come in handy, since you know, you’re about as tall as one.”

You opened your mouth in playful shock, grabbing a nearby tea towel and hitting him on the arm with it.

This boy, he’s made you happier than I have ever seen you. He puts a smile on your face that I thought the last guy took with him when he walked away with a piece of your heart. He makes you laugh just that little bit louder and believe me when I tell you that he practically glows when your laughing at something he’s said.

This boy, he’s put the bounce back in your step and the love back in your heart. When your blue-eyed gaze meets his hazel stare the world seems to stop. When he kisses you one hand is on your hip and the other is in your hair and he’s holding you like you’re the most precious thing he’ll ever touch.

This boy, he’s put the joy back into your life. He’s dragged you out of one hole and promised not to pull you into another. He’s prepared to put everything, time, effort, love, into this relationship and he’s prepared to do it all for you.

Why on earth would you let something, someone, that makes you happy walk away all because another boy in another place in another time broke your heart?

And I get it, you’re scared. You’re scared you’ll fuck it up. Or you’re scared that he’ll hurt you. Or you’re scared that something will break you both beyond repair and not all the glue in the world could put you back together.

But let me tell you something. You can’t fuck it up until you try. And if you don’t try then you fucked up anyway.
