february 15 | “family” (Here’s the overview for an AU with all of the tropes because why not.)
Royal Arranged Marriage AU with supernatural fantasy elements. Gabriel is a wraith who’s the literal Prince of Darkness, equally loved and feared by everyone in Blackwatch, his city. Overwatch, a nearby kingdom that Gabriel’s always been wary of, approaches him one day, seeking an alliance. They offer him their Prince’s hand in marriage in exchange for Gabriel’s help defending against Talon, an insurgent force seeking to usurp them from within.
Gabriel is irritated but agrees to meet his potential husband-to-be, since he’d apparently accompanied the envoy anyway. He’s surprised when the handsome, scarred vampire he’d assumed was a bodyguard steps forward and introduces himself as Jack, the Prince of Light.
BONUS: Jack and Gabriel had already met the night before out in the city while avoiding their royal duties and being Grumpy Old Immortals. Neither had realized that the other was a Prince.
Summary: Nesta firmly believes that if you want something, you have to work your ass off for it. And she wants a National title attached to her name. But when her coach decides that a change in discipline is what Nesta needs, she’s far from impressed. Now, instead of training as a ladies single skater, she has to switch gears and skate as a pairs skater. And her partner? Someone she can’t stand. Non other then cocky, flirtatious, former Men’s skater Cassian. Edited by: @ilikebigbooks-and-icannotlie
Azriel stood just a few feet away from boards waiting, watching.
He watched everything. He kept his eyes on the players around him, skating up and down the ice at top speed. He kept his eyes on the puck, watching as it was passed from player to player.
He watched everything, taking it all in. No one paid much attention to him. They were all too concerned about the puck and trying to get it in the net.
But that’s how it always was.
They called him the Shadowsinger - no one ever knew where he was or when he was going to show up. Even if they knew to keep a look out for him, if someone looked away for just a moment, he was there, sneaking up behind them. His blades seemed to not even make a sound, as if he appeared out of the shadows themselves.
Azriel hadn’t been too sure about the nickname at first. But after a while, he’d grown accustomed to it. He played off of it. He took the name and made it a part of him.
So he stood back. He let the other players do what they needed to do. They passed the punk between them, slapping it across the icy surface. They took shots on the net only to have the goalie deflect them. There was yelling - from between the players and the coach - mixed in with the sound of blades plowing up snow.
Throughout the chaos, Azriel simply stood in the shadows. Waiting. Watching.
anyway!! you know that trope where the characters accidentally confess something during a drinking game? well we’re gonna abuse the fuck outta it!
so someone asks the mc the iconic question of “fuck marry kill”

but i’m writing this au so what if the beaumonts still get broke in this au (☆v☆)
so there’s this whole Plot where they make maxwell try out some sports and/or get him to raise his grades so he can apply for a scholarship and, you know, stay in their university. so he can stay with mc
but he still gets kicked out because he’s not really performing well in school
it’s because he’s too focused on hanging out with mc and his friends since he’s scared to lose them ;)
so there’s this whole going away party for maxwell and everything seems tragic…
until it’s revealed that maxwell’s just going to the university a couple blocks away lmao
PRESIDENT OBAMA & PRINCE HARRY WHAT'S SO FUNNY?!?!
Prince Harry knows how to crack up a president.
No. 44 and His Royal Highness hit up Day 7 of the Invictus Games in Toronto. Obama and Prince Harry sat courtside for a little wheelchair basketball action.
After the game, they posed for pics with the American team in the locker room.
Former VP Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, were also there. We’re used to seeing Obama and Biden yucking it up but Obama and Harry? Gotta figure that conversation’s super smart and, clearly, super hilarious.

The Kansas City third baseman, who will retire with a lifetime .305 batting average, also accomplished the rare feat against Baltimore in 1979.
