Bakugou’s stomach:[grooowl]

Kirishima: Oh, poor thing. You must be so hungry!

Bakugou: Who are you calling poor, shitt-![stomach growl] *blushes*

Kirishima: You don’t have to be shy *grabs some bones from his basket* I’ll give u these!

Bakugou: I don’t want your fucking bones [stomach growling]

Kirishima:*raises an eyebrow* Seriously?

Bakugou: Just..give..me *mutters* *steals bones to Kiri*

Kirishima: Hey!

Bakugou: SHUT UP! *starts to nibble one bone*

Kirishima: *sighs* Well, I’m happy you enjoy it.

Kirishima: I’m sure that Granny would be happy to give u these.

Kirishima: After all, she won’t need them anymore.

Bakugou: *stops to nibble* *spits out of his mouth the bone* WAIT, ARE U SAYING THESE ARE THE REMAINS OF YOUR GRANDMOTHER?

Kirishima: WHAT? NO! MY GRANNY HAD A DOG IN HER HOUSE WHICH ESCAPED. THAT WAS HIS FOOD. MY GRANNY IS PERFECTLY ALIVE!

can I just say can people stop getting mad at people for liking Saeran or “crying” over him? like seriously, god damn just because you don’t like him or are mad that people are sad over what happened doesn’t mean you have to shove it down their throat that they can’t like or feel bad for him. I have a friend who didn’t really like him romantically but felt so bad and cried and that’s alright. I mean, please, I understand it’s the “V route ” but you can’t stop people from liking Saeran and wanting him to be happy. It’s fine, it’s not affecting you. I’m so grateful and thankful to cheritz for the V route but you got to realize people like other characters aswell. Thank you.

PERCY JACKSON AND GROVER UNDERWOOD ARE BEST FRIENDS AND I WISH PEOPLE WOULD STOP ERASING IT.

LEO VALDEZ AND PIPER MCLEAN ARE BEST FRIENDS AND I WISH PEOPLE WOULD STOP ERASING IT.

PERCY JACKSON WAS EXTREMELY CLOSE FRIENDS WITH CHARLES BECKENDORF AND I WISH PEOPLE WOULD STOP FORGETTING THAT.

CLARRISE LA RUE CARED ABOUT SILENA BEAUREGARD WITH ALL HER HEART AND I WISH PEOPLE WOULD STOP FORGETTING THAT.

PERCY JACKSON AND RACHEL ELIZABETH DARE WERE GREAT FRIENDS BEFORE SHE LIKED HIM AND STILL WERE AFTER AND I WISH PEOPLE WOULD STOP ERASING THAT.

I WISH PEOPLE REMEMBERED BIANCA DI ANGELO FOR MORE THAN JUST LEAVING NICO FOR THE HUNTERS. SHE WANTED TO BE FREE.

I WISH PEOPLE REMEMBER ZOË NIGHTSHADE FOR MORE THAN ‘THE DAM SNACK BAR’. SHE FOUGHT BRAVELY FOR ARTEMIS.

I WISH FRANK WAS TAKEN MORE SERIOUSLY BY THE FANS AND STOP BEING WRITTEN OFF AS THE AWKWARD ONE.

I WISH LEO WOULD STOP BEING LABELED AS THE FLIRT.

I WISH THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN LEO AND CALYPSO WASN’T SO CRUSHING TO THE FORMING OF THEIR CHARACTER.

I WISH PERCY WASN’T CALLED A GOOFBALL BUT THEN NOT CONSIDERED FOR HOW SMART HE REALLY IS.

I WISH PEOPLE REMEMBERED THALIA’S PAIN WHEN JASON WAS TAKEN AWAY.

AND THALIA FEELING THAT PAIN AGAIN WHEN LEARNING ABOUT LUKE.

I WISH PEOPLE REMEMBERED THAT LUKE WASNT ALWAYS A BAD GUY AND THAT HE TRULY CARED ABOUT ANNABETH.

PERCY WAS NOT UPSET AT NICO FOR ‘NOT BEING HIS TYPE’. HE WAS CONFUSED THAT SOMEONE HE THOUGHT HATED HIM COULD HAVE BEEN IN LOVE WITH HIM. CONSIDER THIS, PLEASE.

TYSON EXISTS. WOW.

I WISH THAT WILL SOLACE WAS TAKEN MORE SERIOUSLY. HE IS NOT JUST NICO’S BOYFRIEND. HE IS A FIERCE, INTELLIGENT DOCTOR WHO HELPED MANY IN THE WAR DURING “THE LAST OLYMPIAN” (HE HELPED ANNABETH!)

REYNA HAD A VALID REASON TO FEEL PAIN WHEN PERCY SAID HE WAS NOT INTERESTED IN HER. IT STINGS.

RACHEL ALSO HAD A VALID REASON.

SO DID CALYPSO.

AND SO DID NICO.

THESE CHARACTERS ARE SO MUCH MORE THAN WHAT THEIR LABELED AS AND WHAT PEOPLE REMEMBER.

Add more if you can think of any. I just r e a l l y had to rant about this at 2 am.

Just Asexual Things

-Getting distracted by how pretty someone is and thinking that’s what people mean when they say “hot” or “sexy”
-Actually finding out what “sexy” means
-Humans are gorgeous but like in the way an overwhelming sunset is gorgeous.
-When I look at you I feel the same things I do when looking at a particularly awesome piece of artwork.
-“finding the right person” Oh brother.
-When people suddenly stop telling their dirty joke because they remember you’re asexual
- Like, no Chad. I wanna hear the rest of that joke. I’m asexual, not a four year old. Now take it from the top.
-That one person that keeps checking in to find out how anyone couldn’t want sex.
-That one person that keeps checking in to see how some asexuals want sex.
-Feeling like some kind of mutant
-Realizing being a mutant is pretty freaking cool
-Developing a love of purple things
-The mini-lecture you have to give 90% of the time you come out to people
-Seeing ace discourse and feeling ready to puke
-When people are excited about a hot person or are obviously horny and you’re just sitting there like…. Okay? Uhhhhhh….. What do I do here?
-Ace puns.
-So many ace puns.
-Pretending you knew what people were talking about when your friends started having “those feelings” as teenagers
-Seriously. Ace puns. It’s like 50% ace puns. We do a pretty ace job of it.

David was lying in “Jasper Dies At The End”

So it’s general assumption that the story David told in “Jasper Dies At The End” was a complete lie and, not gonna lie? There is SO MUCH evidence for this.

Take note of how everything is oddly exaggerated and unnatural in the story

The way the counselors say “Oh no! Not Davey!” “He’s such a troublemaker!” sounds very. Exaggerated. Like they’re reacting to a Saturday Morning Cartoon villain. 

David’s “trouble making” actions are also the sort of things David would see as problems. Insulting nature, using words like “dang”, littering, etc. 
Plus the way one of the current counselors says ”Oh Davey! You have so much potential! If only you would apply yourself!”
It REALLY sounds like David is trying to make an impression on Max, or send him some sort of message.

Take David’s childhood actions versus Max’s.
David says dang, litters, and insults nature
Max swears like a sailor, literally starts a camp revolt, and tries to run away a lot.
These sort of things would fly over David’s head and just come off as a grumpy kid who hates nature,

But David’s behavior isn’t the only thing he lied about. I think he also lied about how Jasper died.

The scars on his chest from the bear attack are parallel to a few scratches from the photo in episode 11. Not to mention how as a ghost, whenever he’s scared Jasper tends to cover up his chest:

These wounds were left open for the entire night, there’s NO WAY Jasper would’ve survived that. Either Jasper had died in the bear cave, or on his way back to the camp.
Additionally, according to David’s story that picture in episode 11 would not be accurate. If David really WAS a grumpy troublesome kid, he wouldn’t be smiling in it. However if the picture was taken AFTER this event, Jasper wouldn’t be smiling because he said he thinks the camp sucks at the end of the episode.

I’m absolutely POSITIVE that David lied about this entire story. He was never a trouble maker and Jasper did NOT survive that bear attack. But why lie? Well, the kids asked why he got that medallion. 

He can’t say he doesn’t want to talk about it, that’d seem suspicious. So why not lie to protect these poor innocent children from the truth of your childhood friends gruesome death, while avoiding sounding suspicious? Maybe the truth is that medallion belong to his old friend Jasper, and he didn’t want to let it go as it serves as a reminder of their good times together.

Additional notes I didn’t have any idea where I should put this in:

-The episode title is a lie. “Jasper Dies At The End”. That doesn’t happen. Jasper in this story does not die. Just like David’s story, the title of this is a lie, and our storyteller is an unreliable narrator.
-Maybe it was just a joke but child David’s voice seriously sounds like an older man attempting to do an impression of a small boy. It could be a hint towards this just being a made up story, or I’m just over analyzing and this is just a joke for the episode. Who knows!

TL;DR: David’s story in Jasper Dies At The End was a HUGE lie and Jasper died because of the bear attack. There are multiple contradictions and oddly exaggerated points within the episode that support this.

I want every classmate to be best friends with every single other classmate… brotp?? brot3?? Forget that, gimme the brot15 with every single kid in this class please

Once upon a time in ROH…

What can be done about gentrification?

I saw this on a reblog and I started answering it, but it turned into something I wanted to stand alone and not be tacked on to another post.

@rafi-dangelo I’m curious, I understand how harmful gentrification can be but what can actually be done about it? I really can’t think of anything.“
@rutabegaville

Nothing.  Movement of populations is natural and neighborhood demographics always change. But I'ma take a moment and describe the different ways irresponsible or disrespectful gentrification displaces and disregards the current residents.  This is all from a NYC point of view, but I’m sure it applies to other metro areas.

1) Choosing personal preference over neighborhood character.
I know plenty of people (mostly white, but some POC as well) who move to big cities from their small towns and they’re appalled at how little space you get for the money.  They want the same amount of living area they had in the suburbs of Omaha but they don’t have the money to pay for it in DUMBO or Chelsea or the Upper West Side or whatever.  So, instead of downsizing their expectations and living where they initially wanted, they move to brown neighborhoods where their money will go a lot further.  You don’t actually need that second bedroom so you can do yoga or work on your art projects.  You made the conscious decision to speed up gentrification in an area because you wanted more space than you could afford coming into a very expensive city to follow your dreams or whatever.

2) Using non-white neighborhoods as a transitional period.
I know plenty of people (again, mostly white) who will move to Harlem or Bed-Stuy or Washington Heights until their paycheck rises to a point where they can afford to move to a different neighborhood.  In terms of gentrification, it seems initially that it would be the proper way to do it – they didn’t stay for years and years and brown people can move back in after they leave.  But obviously that’s not how it works.  Businesses follow those transitional whites who make more money than the surrounding POC, but not enough money to live in the white neighborhoods they’re aspiring to.  So they bring with them the Starbuckses and the Whole Foodses and the juice bars, all business that lead to rapid increases in rents.  And then they get their raises or their careers advance and in a few years they’re gone.  It’s basically drive-by gentrification.  

3) Disregarding the local character.
I know plenty of people (mostly white) who have lived in gentrifying neighborhoods for years and have never met a neighbor.  Never gone to a community meeting.  Never gone to a block party.  I can accept that kind of passive existence, but then there are those who take it a step further to complain about things in the neighborhood that have been part of the fabric for decades before gentrification.  If you have a baby, don’t move to Washington Heights and rent an apartment on the main drag where all the clubs are and then call the police every night because of noise to the point where liquor licenses are threatened.  Don’t call the cops on the Ecuadorian lady selling dinner plates out of her living room for extra cash.  Don’t call the cops about the old Black dudes barbecuing on the sidewalk because they’re blocking the way.

Gentrification is a hard pill to swallow and there’s absolutely no way to prevent it.  However, as with most things, if you conduct yourself like a considerate human being, you can help mitigate the damages.

1) Think about where you’re moving.
If you tour a place on a block full of older buildings and you walk into your prospective apartment and everything is brand new, somebody probably just moved out (maybe not of their own volition) and the landlord renovated so he could jack the price up.  You can look up the history of a building and in NYC that’s helpful because shady landlords regularly force longtime tenants out of a building once the surrounding neighborhood starts to support a higher rental price due to the influx of gentrifiers.

2) Think about why you’re moving.
If you have X amount of dollars and you’re choosing between some neighborhood you love and another neighborhood you just plan to live in until you can afford the same amount of space in the neighborhood you love, ask yourself if you really need all of that space in the first place.  Sometimes the answer is yes, and that’s absolutely your prerogative.  I just want everyone to take a beat and seriously consider it first.

3) Don’t rent more than you can afford and then crowdsource the rest.
Y'all know I deleted a potential friend/date-person because they rented a two-bedroom they couldn’t afford with the intention of putting the other bedroom on Air BnB to cover the rest of the rent.  That is the most disrespectful form of gentrification.  You’re taking an apartment that was probably needed by a family who can no longer afford it because the landlord can get a much higher rent out of you…who also can’t afford it, but have the luxury of just being one person so you can crowdsource the rest of the rent.  It’s gross and there’s no part of me that will ever see someone in the same light once they rent an apartment with the explicit plan to cover the rent using a shared economy model.

4) Know where you’re moving and make sure you’re fine with the area as is.
Don’t move and then be shocked that a church is having choir practice on Wednesday night, the same practice they’ve had for the past three decades.  Don’t move and then decide the neighborhood is too loud.  Don’t move and then act like the Saturday afternoon block party is inconveniencing your life.  If you’re going to contribute to rising rents and corporate chains putting mom & pops out of business, the least you can do is let the people live and enjoy themselves the way they did before you got there.

I do recognize the benefits of gentrification, partly because I live in Harlem, partly because I follow trends and statistics, and partly because I recognize the unfortunate fact that a whole host of institutions from law enforcement to capital investment don’t give a damn about an area until white people move in and those improvements can benefit everyone, not just the new white folks.  But if you’re really committed to awareness, justice, and equality while also being a (possibly even reluctant) gentrifier, it’s your duty to make sure you’re doing it as responsibly as you can.

What Lovers Do: Part 1

Fandom: Marvel

Pairing: Bucky Barnes x Reader

Summary: You have a friend with benefits relationship with the Winter Soldier himself: Bucky Barnes. You two have gotten the routine down: wake up, train, mission, come home, have sex, then act like nothing happened. It’s worked for you for a while now. But now that Bucky’s starting to see someone seriously, you don’t know what to do with yourself.

Warnings: implications of smut, ANGST

A/N: I got too excited so I decided to just post the first part today! If you want to be tagged in the series, please send me an ASK. EDIT: Tagging is now CLOSED. 


You and Bucky laid on the bed, naked, sweaty and panting. You just went three rounds of your “bedroom exercises”. You stared at the ceiling still in the post-sex haze.

“I’m seeing someone.” Bucky sais breaking the silence.

You turn your head to look at him, but he continues to stare at the ceiling, “Oh?”

“I think it’s getting serious.”

Your mouth suddenly feels really dry. You knew this would happen eventually, but you figured you’d be the one to break it off. Not Bucky. You wished it was you to find someone. But no. You couldn’t. Not when the guy you just had sex with was the one for you.

“What’s her name?” You looked at him teasingly, trying to hide the pain.

Bucky smiled, “Melissa, but she goes by Mellie.” Bucky turns to you and props his head on his hand, “Y/N, she’s so beautiful, kind, and funny. She knows about my past and she accepts me for who I am. It’s-It’s so amazing. She’s so amazing.”

You have him a small smile, the smile not reaching your eyes, “I’m happy for you, Buck.”

“I don’t, actually” Steve grins. “I was just thinkin’”

“Yeah. I know” Bucky shuts him up, pinching his husband’s side, earning a yelp in turn. “Stop it and let me suck your pretty cock”

The price of hard work

Check Please, following Bitty’s jam debacle


Lardo sighed. Immediately, Bitty set the ingredients on the counter and turned around, caretaker instincts on full alert.

‘Lardo? What is it?’

‘Humpf. I need to price my art, and it sucks,’ she mumbled, drawing a duckling on the margin of her list. ‘Needs to be done before the end of year expo, but honestly? I’d rather give the lot and don’t bother with money.’

‘Larissa Duan! You spent the entire semester on these! You can’t just give them away!’

‘… Yeah but I like making art.’

‘It’s still work! You should be paid for that effort! And all the money you spent on supplies- lord I can’t even imagine how much those gigantic canvases are. Weren’t you complaining about how expensive good paint is just the other day?’

‘Yeah, I guess so. So, you’re saying all good work deserves remuneration?’

‘Of course!’

‘So you should get paid for your jam.’

‘Wait what- no! Not me! This is completely different-’

‘Hm. I tried. Shits, your turn.’

At that same moment, Shitty enters the kitchen, dressed only in a pair of Falconers boxers and a black tshirt that belonged to Lardo, which fit him like a crop top. Bitty didn’t even know he was at Samwell that day. 

‘Eric Bitty Bittleman The Second, tiny bro of my heart, maker of the pies, we need to talk.’

‘If this is about the jam, I already told the Falcs I didn’t want to be paid-’

‘I’m here to talk to you about market pricing, my man. There are other people, out there, working their asses off to make delicious jam, and they love doing it as much as you do. But those bros, bro, are actually depending on it to pay the rent. What you’re doing, here, is depreciating the value of jam, and convincing fans of said jam that they can have an product of excellent quality- for FREE! This is bad for business, Bits, this can even come back and bite you in the ass when you open a bakery. You don’t want to hurt future you and your fellow bakers, don’t you?’

Bitty stays silent for a moment, mouth wide open.

‘I- I didn’t think of it like that! I was just, you know, in the zone, you know how I get? And then there was all this jam, and I know the team would make a good effort, but they couldn’t seriously eat it all? But, I didn’t know it actually had an impact on the economy?’

‘Well, now that they know where to find delicious jam and baked goods for free, do you think the Falcs, their families and the SMH are going to get it elsewhere?’

Bitty bit his lip and looked at his hands.

‘I just wanted to make them happy. I love feeding people.’

‘And you can! You still can! I’m not saying you can’t make gifts once in a while or bake for your friends, I’m just saying there’s a line at some point.’

‘Yeah, I guess you’re right. But I know nothing about- about pricing! Lardo, how do you even manage with art?’

‘I use my resources, man,’ she said, snapping her fingers.

At that moment, Ransom and Holster barged into the kitchen, both carrying their laptops.

‘Boys? Were you all waiting in the hallway?’

‘No time for chitchat, Bits, time is money,’ says Holster, straddling a chair backwards in front of him. ‘We’re here to help.’

‘I got a spreadsheet here,’ says Ransom, sliding his laptop. ‘Compiling ingredient prices, electricity for the oven, mason jar prices, transport from Samwell to Providence and your work time, from the moment you went to buy those fruits until you closed your last mason jar.’

‘That- that is a lot of time.’

‘Wish I had that kind of concentration for studying law,’ grumbled Shitty.

‘It’s not all,’ continued Ransom. ‘This second sheet calculates the prices of similar products from spots around Samwell and Providence, from the Stop N’ Shop to the fancy little cafés and farmers market near Jack’s house.’

‘Wait, did Jack sent you those?’

‘Brah, Jack ASKED US to do this,’ said Holster with a roll of his eyes.

‘So, here are the prices of a single jam unit- counting the ingredients and the mason jar,’ said Ransom, before clicking on another Excel page, ‘and this is the price of each if one calculates the time worked, compared to what bakers and cooks make in those same cafés and suppliers.’

‘…I- I understand wanting to keep the market, and paying for the ingredients,’ hesitated Bitty, ‘but I’m still not sure I want to be paid to bake?’

‘I’m gonna give away every single one of my art pieces,’ said Lardo, doodling more ducklings. 

‘… Alright, alright, I think I get it. I’ll just put the money in the Haus funds, since I took pretty much all of it to pay for the ingredients.’

‘You put back what you took and you keep the rest,’ said Shitty. ‘Do you really want to graduate without a cent in the bank and live off of Jack’s salary?’

‘What? No! Of course not!’

‘So start making dough, my boy. That future bakery won’t finance itself, you know.’

‘Also, people respect a product if they have to pay a reasonable price for it,’ commented Holster. ‘You don’t want to ruin your reputation from the get go. Honestly I’d suggest asking for more, since it’s also fucking delicious and a secret family recipe and organic shit people are crazy about, but we’ll work our way up there over the years.’

‘Here, I got the price per unit, what everyone bought listed hockey team, then alphabetically, the total, subtracting what was borrowed to the Sin Bin fund- that makes-’

‘GOOD LORD THAT’S MORE THAN FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS.’

‘Well, it WAS a shit ton of jam,’ shrugged Lardo.

‘And hard work, too,’ added Shitty. ‘So, do you accept?’

‘Well, I guess? Y’all make a lot of good points…’

‘Sweet,’ said Lardo, sending a text.

A moment later, Bitty’s cell phone vibrated with a message. His bank application signalled that someone transferred him funds- 

‘How did Jack know exactly how much to send???’

‘Told ya, Bits, it was all his idea,’ said Shitty. ‘And the Falcs have been giving him money, even hiding it in the pockets of his hockey bag, to pay for their stuff. He just wanted to make sure you were on board with it.’

Bitty didn’t know what to feel about all this, he was still insecure about pricing his jam - and his pies, cookies, muffins and other pastries, if one was to believe Ransom’s other Excel spread sheet- but the reality was that he was now five thousand dollars closer to open his own bakery, someday.

Summary : As unwelcomed cat hybrid, you’ve lived in the streets since you were born. You never believed in love neither in humanity. But even though you didn’t want to be loved by someone, you wanted him to love you.


As you tried to move your numb body, you felt something was off. You just woke up in a big ass room, it was cold and you were lying on the cold marble ground. What happened to you? The last thing you’ve remembered was that you fall asleep at your usual shelter. The one that you’ve built for yourself, but this place was nothing like your shelter.

“I can’t get up, why can’t I get up?!” You cried out loud. 

You had no idea what was going on with your little hybrid body. You looked up the two males in front of you it wasn’t fair you thought. You’ve done nothing wrong to them, you were paying your ‘bills’ as they called it nowadays. They always demanded big moneys and you had nothing to do but robe people for the get money. 

Since you had no place to go, you started to live in streets. No one wanted to own you so you had to run away from that shelter, your kind must be loveable and friendly—unlike you. Just because you were half ragdoll cat and half human; no one wanted to own you. Not because you were not loveable, it was your attitude and all. You didn’t trust anyone anyway, everyone just wanted to hurt you; how you were supposed to love someone that harms you? You couldn’t love anyone, you never had and you never will; that was for sure. No one worth for loving in this life, the world was dark and you had to protect yourself. At least you tried to do, but right now you were miserable while laying down on the cold ground and waiting for the death.

“You don’t belong here and you don’t belong to the shelter as well.” One of them said.

What was his point? You knew that you belong to no place and belong to no human as well. You started to make your escape plan but since your body was numb you couldn’t think everything through.

“So what are you guys planning to do with me?” You hissed at them. 

One of your sides wanted to know the truth but the other side of you didn’t think that was a very good idea.

“We will sell you.”

Gif’s not mine!

Growing up as a hunter sure had its disadvantages. Aside from the constant danger, being overall socially awkward due to not having time to get to know people, and always having to be on alert, you also made your peace with having to accept you didn’t know everything, especially when it came to humans, but you knew that you had to look for help when you needed it.

“Sam, I need help.”

Sam’s head shot up and he put the book down, sitting up straight almost immediately, “Sure. Are you in trouble?”

You cleared your throat as you sat down across him, and his eyes searched yours,

“Is this about Lucifer?”

“No-“

“Angels?”

“No-“

“Is it-“

“How do I get a guy to like me?”

anonymous asked:

I was wondering if you had any advice for how to flirt with someone who is autistic? I'm mildly autistic, and I've met this guy and he's just perfect. He's autistic himself, and I really want to let him know that I like him, but I don't think either of us are great at giving/receiving subtle flirting. I really want to let him know how I feel but without making him uncomfortable by being too blunt. I'd be forever indebted if you had any advice xx

No subtle flirting; we confess our affection like autistics :)

Seriously, though, my amorous anon friend. I think you should throw subtle out the window. There are ways to be straightforward without being too blunt.

You can add qualifiers, or sandwich it with reminders of your friendship to gentle it, but I think you should be straightforward and confess your attraction directly. In my humble opinion, a good romantic confession has three core parts to it.

1. A clear declaration of your romantic attraction/affection/non-platonic feelings

When someone says, “I like you”, do they mean as friends? Or romantically? In the same way that they like ice-cream?

2. What your expectation are; why you’re confessing

And when someone says, “I like you”, you may be wondering what they expect- you like me, so we should date now? Or, we should make out now? Or, I want to marry you?

3. A reassurance that you’re cool no matter what their answer is

It’s nerve wracking and takes real courage to confess your attraction, but being confessed to can also be pretty emotionally stressful. People can’t communicate sincerely or be honest if they’re afraid of social repercussions.

As an example, here’s a script that’s good generally. It’s a “pick the relevant options and/or slide in your own” kinda thing.

“[Name] can I talk to you about something? It’s not bad, but is important.

This is hard/scary/nerve wracking to say, but I respect you and want to be honest with you. I’ve developed romantic feelings for you/I like you as “more than a friend”/I am attracted to you/I would like for us to try dating.

I want to tell you because I wonder if you feel the same way. No matter how you feel/what your answer is, I’m happy to know you/be your friend/to have told you, and I hope that we can continue to be friends.

If you do feel the same way, I’d like to talk to you more about that/discuss our feelings some time/ask you on a date.”

I hope this helps? Honestly, I’m. Not the best at flirting, dating, confessing attraction, etc. But this has general script has worked pretty well for me in the past.
