I’m kinda thinking of making this a series, so just let me know if you like it. 


Draco watched you from afar. Staring had become his only form of communication, he was too scared to talk to you, but to tempted to look. It became some sort of obsession to him. Reading, eating, study in library and watch you go to your common room. Draco wouldn’t just look at you. It was a matter of looking through you. So much so, that it was like your head was transparent and he was fascinated by an object two inches behind your skull.

From the Gryffindor table where you sat next to Hermione, Draco sat at his table and stared. Hermione was the closest thing to a friend, and even then, you weren’t that close. With your face stuffed in a book and your head in the clouds, you never noticed his constant staring and lack of friends.     

Blaise waved his hand in front of Draco’s face desperately trying to catch the attention on his friends.

“Oi! Mate, stop staring,” He chuckled at his friend jokingly. You never were popular. You read more than you ate and studied more than you slept. You were quite unusual. Draco rolled his eyes at Blaise in a playful manner.

“My mother told me that girls who seemingly read a lot are more complex and mysterious,“ He sighed and smiled “Harder to figure out.” Draco glanced at Blaise seriously. Blaise looked back at you one last time, watching how you flipped your hair to one side and then flipped the page of your book.

“My father said that girls who read books a lot are wasting time,” Blaise laughed with his fellow Slytherin friends.

Then you set aside your book and began talking to Hermione. Your voice rung amongst the other kids, but Draco tuned them out to listen to you.

“Oh, Hermione!” You said cheerfully “This book is about a girl who wants to go to Verona.” Hermione turned to you and smiled.

“You’ve read that about 100 times,” She laughed “You must get so bored,” She inquired. But you shook your head and laughed.

“The girl in the book, she goes on adventures while I stay in Hogwarts when I could be fighting Death Eaters,” You huffed defeatedly. “There must be more than this provincial life.”

Hermione wrapped her arm around your shoulder “In time Y/N.” Hermione was one of the only kids that could understand you. Even Luna was puzzled by your nature, and she was quite weird herself.

Draco smiled at your laugh and watched how you picked up the book again and began to read.

“Isn’t she beautiful?” He gawked. But Blaise had other ideas.

“Mate, she’s in Gryffindor and is a bookworm. Yeah, she’s got some ass, but that’s it.”

Dazed and distracted, people would call you. They said you would never fit into any crowd. But you never believed any of them. They were wrong. You were your own crowd, even though people thought you should be in Ravenclaw, the sorting hat was not wrong to put you in Gryffindor. You got up from your table in the great hall and began to walk towards the doors. Draco got up with you, a distance away so nobody would know he was following you. Everyone looked at you as you got up. Usually, there would be whispers about you, but this time, nobody cared.

There was one boy who liked you, you never learned his name, but he was from Slytherin and incredibly persistent. He had one goon that would do everything for him, and he thought he was the most beautiful person ever. He was the only person ever that gave you attention, of course, he would only talk to you about once a month when his ego was low.

So there you sat in the library, reading a muggle book called The Hobbit, while Draco walked over to where you were sitting and sat in the chair next to you. He got a sudden burst of confidence and quickly decided to talk to you.

“Uh—what book is that?” You looked at him suspiciously and then glanced around the library for any of his friends.

“What do you want Malfoy?” You sneered his way. He looked slightly taken aback. “Why do you look so surprised. You are rude to Hermione right?” He still sat there, letting you rant on him. “Calling her mud blood and stuff,” you mumbled to yourself. “Can you just go to let me read.” And even though regret burned inside of you for being so rude you knew he hurt Hermione.

“Sorry…” He trained off “But what book are you reading?” He started again, he was really persistent. You knew the regret would come to you in quiet moments, such as when he was going to sleep or during class when you got bored. How could you be rude to him when he never was rude to you. You didn’t want to believe he was horrible, but what was there to believe. Another wave of regret washed over you. Each shallow wave ran down your spine. You took a deep breath and frowned.

“It’s called The Hobbit. It’s about Bilbo Baggins who meets a wizard named Gandalf and have the biggest adventure ever.” Draco smiles at you while your arms wrap around the book protectively. “You know,” You smiled at his behavior.

His eyes lit up at your voice mentioning him in an okay light.

“Yes?” He smiled at you.

“You remind me of this book character in this children’s book my father read me.” For perhaps a split second you saw something in the boy’s eyes, that seemed almost radiant. But that was only for a second. “Do you know what my favorite book is?”

“Yes, you carry it in your bag all the time… Beauty And The Beast!” He smiled nicely at you and bounced his right leg excitedly.

You leaned in too slowly to be normal. When you began to speak your voice trailed slowly. If Draco thought he would ever get close to you, he thought wrong. You touched his hand and whispered something, now your face was inches apart.

“You remind me of the beast.”

Request:  A Marvel request, this time: Reader is the youngest of the Avengers and they all see her as a little sister. She has written a fantasy novel and shyly asked Steve to read it. With her birthday approaching, Steve decides to illustrate her story while Tony sets everything in motion to publish it as soon as the Reader gives her Okay. On her birthday, they present her with a beautifully bound and illustrated copy of her novel. Thanks in advance!

(Y/n)’s hair wasn’t made, but it still bugged her that Sam just had to go a ruffle it more.

“Morning, squirt.” the dark man chuckled “Thought of anything you want for your birthday yet?”

She mumbled something in reply, waddling to her spot at the large oval table. It’s dark stained wood easy for morning eyes.

“Sam sit’own, it’s time to eat!” Tony barked.

The avenger complied, forgetting about the girls lack of response, and claimed his chair across from Bucky and next to Steve. The rest of everyone else were already situated in their respective spots.

Eggs and bacon, waffles and orange juice were dished out. Idle words charmed the morning air between bites and swallows.

Something like this was common but never common enough. All of them had contradicting schedules so a sit down of this sort was highly valued. Even if when (Y/n)’s eyes glided across the table and could only see other sets of tired ones to match hers; they would always be paired with genuine, dopey morning smiles as well.

“Anything new with anyone?” Natasha asked generally, sipping her black coffee.

“There’s this publisher-” Tony uttered with his mouth stuffed full of bacon scraps “He’sh a real big fwan of Iron Man. Said if I evar haff any books I wan’ published, to call ‘em.”

“Oh, really?” Steve commented “That’s nice of him.”

“Sure was,” the brunette swallowed and laughed “but I don’t exactly have any raw manuscripts lying around in need of publishing.”

“I think I might actually tell him thanks but no thanks.” Tony finished with a swig of his juice.

“Well, I find it odd to offer a billionaire inventor a publishing job.” Bruce chimed.

He and Steve both stood to clear their plates, taking anyone else’s that asked.

“Umh, Steve?” (Y/n) spoke up. She gently rose herself from her chair, swiping her plate up with her.

“Hmm?” the soldier hummed in response.

He was manning the sink, stringing up a hand as the girl approached him; wanting her plate. Though Steve didn’t take a second to glance her way, the small team member still willingly gave up her plate.

“Do you mind coming up to my dorm after we clean up. Please?” (Y/n) asked.

Though a moment of silence, Steve did eventually agree.

❆   ❆   ❆

Soon after the first meal of the day was cleared, the two team mates met in the arranged location.

(Y/n) opened the door softly to allow Steve in, then just as gently, shut it behind him.

“I only wanted you up here to show you something small I’ve been working on.” she said, shuffling to her bedside table for a moment.

Steve bore confused eyes but had them complimented with a welcoming smile. He watched as (Y/n) took out a bound mess of papers, some splotched with inky dots.

“I ah- well I wrote a small novel. It’s a fantasy of sorts…” the girl trailed off.

Steve held out a hand to take the papers from (Y/n). She seemed hesitant before releasing them.

“You wrote all this?” He asked after flipping across some pages.

Steve saw her nod quaintly.

“I just- Tony was talking about the publisher,”

When (Y/n) began to speak, the soldier started to read some of the paragraphs.

“and that reminded me that I was going to show you this. I was going to do it sooner, but I didn’t want to waste any of your work time so I thought maybe now would be good…”

Her words fell short for a few moments before she finished with “That and.. I was never very confident in this story. I love it dearly but I don’t have much courage for it…”

“How long have you been writing this?” Steve questioned “I’m really impressed. You are seriously talented…”

The girl went silent for several seconds before replying with a small grin.

“You can take it with you to read fully, if you’d like.”

Steve smiled back down at her “Can I really?”

“Of course.”

❆   ❆   ❆

Later on in week, Steve was hauled up in his dorm, reading and re-reading the story. He absolutely loved the creative characters that (Y/n) was able to bring to life just by using words. The story plot itself was hypnotizing to him.

“Hey, hey, capcicle.” Tony called from behind Steve’s closed door “You alive?”

“Yeah, yeah come in.”

The brunette entered soundly and said “What have you been doing. You’ve been in here for like two weeks..?”

Steve looked up to the man at the door, eyes tracing his face briefly. Then it struck him, a small idea.

“Well I’ve been reading… this story that (Y/n) wrote.” He spoke softly.

Tony looked as though he was about to laugh.

“(Y/n) writes?” the billionaire scoffed “Sounds dumb.”

“Hey,” Steve hissed “she’s is actually intensely talented.”

Tony sighed from Steve’s retaliation and fummbled with his words for a few moments, studying at the others face.

His eyes squinted softly.

“What do you want from me?”

Steve grinned, a small glint in his eyes as the gears in his mind worked together.

“I’m glad you asked.”

The blond took away several minutes to explain to Tony what he wanted done. He chose his words cautiously, allowing all his excitement bleed through his statements.

He told the billionaire about how he desired to illustrate her work in full colour and how maybe this would be their chance at a birthday surprise.

After a while of listening to the soldier speak, Tony stopped him with a brisk shake of his palm.

“You want me to take up the deal with the publisher, and have (Y/n)’s novel published without her overall consent?”

Steve stood with square shoulders, slightly taken aback. He chanced his voice “Yep.”

The opposite male didn’t take the opportunity to hide his flashing smirk.

“Well then, you have yourself a deal.”

❆   ❆   ❆

The next half of the month was spent with Steve and Tony slyly avoiding (Y/n). Steve wasn’t himself a good liar, but he was still able to coax the young hero into letting him keep the book for a while longer.

(Y/n) was no doubt happy that someone took extensive interest in her works. But, even now she could tell that Steve was beating around the bush.

As of the current, the girl was trying to find Steve to maybe interrogate him.

“Oh hey, (Y/n)!” a voice pulled at her.

She came face to face with Tony.

“Hey, Tony.” (Y/n) smiled “do you happen to know where Steve is?”

Tony charmed the girl with a smile of his own “I sure do.” he said matter-of-factly.

“Oh, that’s good. Mind showing m–”

“Right this way, my dear.”

Tony had turned around and started walking down the corridor. (Y/n) abruptly followed him.

It wasn’t long before both their steps sunk through the space with nothing else opposing them.

“Wait, Tony- if you are leading me to a surprise party, it’s a little early.” the girl spoke wearily.

“Pff- I know your birthday is tomorrow. I’m not the stupid one.” Tony answered. He twisted himself into a sudden right turn, entering the lounge.

There stood a solid Captain America, he had a smile manipulating his features.

“Hey Steve!” Tony called in a bright tone “Fancy meeting you here.”

Steve and (Y/n) both chuckled and Tony stepped out of the way of the two.

The girl approached the blond male.

“Steve, do you happen to have my manuscript on you?” She asked, looking his directly in his face “You would probably be done reading it over by now…”

Steve’s smile broadened and Tony snickered soundly.

“Yeah sure, here.”

From behind his back, Steve produced a beautiful leather bound, printed copy of the small girl’s story. It made (Y/n)’s eyes widen in pure shock.

“I..”

(Y/n) read and re-read the title many times before she put together the piece that this was really her book. Her pride and joy in one official copy, just handed to her.

Not missing a beat, her swiped the book from the soldier’s hand and opened it wide. Immediately (Y/n) was clad with bright eyes as she viewed the images corresponding with everything she had put in words.

Two questions crossed her mind, and she gazed up at the two men before her.

“Is this mine?” she asked first.

Tony laughed and Steve did as well. Only briefly before both nodding.

“Is this.. is this published?” she questioned again. Her smiling lips framed her eyes that were hastily growing misty.

“Surprise.”

Hi! Firstly I love you and your studyblr. You are a life saver muah 💋. Ok so HELP ME! I have my mocks right around the corner and i haven't done anything and i still don't feel motivated. I don't wanna fail. I have to complete a lot of stuff so how do i do that quickly. Any tips?🙃😶❤️

Thank you so much for the compliments! You have no idea how happy you’ve made me now! As stupid as I am i had to google what mocks are (I’m ashamed of myself ehh), so I’m not a pro but I’ll try to give some advice:

active learning

For god’s sake please don’t just skim through the textbooks over and over again, it’s ridiculous and time-consuming. In the end the information won’t even stick to your brain, so don’t passively read and highlight, you are just wasting your time. Instead opt for active learning methods:

  • read and make your own notes
    ps. don’t just write down exactly like they are written in the textbooks, formulate them with your own words, and make them as compact as possible
  • research on the topics online; google is truly my bff if i want to go in-depth/don’t understand a topic
  • watch documentaries and youtube videos!! seriously the videos give you so much more simplified information in a short time!!
  • discuss the topics with your friends or mutuals who also are studying for mocks! 

prioritise 

Don’t study too much on your stronger areas, again you’re just wasting your time doing so. Focus on your weaker areas like e.g. math, chemistry, english lit(seems to be the subjects people have the most troubles with?). 

I would also suggest your to learn the basics properly first! Like why would you proceed to more complicated topics and manage them if you don’t handle the basics? I mean you’d be just wasting your time once again.

time management

Make a schedule for your studying! Collect all your study materials and try to calculate how much time you have left for your exams, choose the subjects you are going to focus more on and plan your times until the D-day. But please don’t be too optimistic and think you can handle studying 6 chapters of math and 5 chapters of chemistry in one day, that’s unrealistic. 

Also don’t think you can study 4 hours in one sitting and actually learn something, the information won’t “stick” you know? Maybe study for 30 minutes and then quickly revise for 5 minutes and go to the bathroom or down to the kitchen to fetch something to snack on! Repeat this maybe 3-4 times and take a long break where you meet friends or do something fun. Later that day you can study again but maybe not for so long as earlier!

Studying is important but don’t forget to live your life too!


studying shouldn’t be taking over your life

“Grades are important” 
“My parents are going to kill me”
”I’m such a failure”

Education is important, i agree, but unfortunately many students are studying under pressure. They have parents who demand good grades and want their children to study in a overly fancy university, or they are the students themselves who are the ones who except too much. An A and an A* would be amazing to get but for fuck’s sake B’s and C’s are good too. You shouldn’t be studying 24/7, even though the mocks are around the corner. Sleep, eat healthily, read books, spend a night watching Netflix even tho the books are waiting for you, exercise, do something stupid, procrastinate; don’t try to be an over achiever, be a human.



Eve Bennett has amazing tips for taking and studying for exams on her revision channel
I’ve hear great things about Christopher Thornton who explain’s common topics on his youtube channel

There a plenty of videos on youtube, just google a subject and insert “revision” and tons of videos will pop up!


I hope these helped you, or someone else, in some way!

Okay since I’ve been private tutoring @strugglingtofrench for a little bit now, I think I’m going to take in two more “students” per say. 

Essentially, I’ll give you actual work sheets that aren’t available on my blog, more in depth lessons on grammar, and it’ll give you a chance to actually practice speaking french. The purpose of this is to get people to stop relying on apps and tumblr and to start learning and becoming fluent.

If you are interested, you must consider the following:

  • Can you keep a reliable schedule?
    • I will have lessons, evaluations, work to be done, and other things either due on a specific date or something that will be done on a set date
  • Do you have an iPhone or another way of communication?
    • If you have an iPhone, we can imessage and call for free. If you do not, then you must tell me ahead of time how we can communicate. I do not want to use Tumblr as our main form of communication
  • Are you serious about learning French?
    • I know it may seem selfish but I do not want to waste my time on someone who isn’t going to take my lessons seriously. I am offering you what is essentially private tutoring for free and all I ask is that you complete the work assigned to you and that you take this seriously.
  • Are you able to do voice chats?
    • I will be evaluating all four aspects of your language skills: reading, writing, speaking, and listening abilities. In order for me to asses this, you must be willing to do voice chats.

My expectations

  • I expect work to be done completely and in a timely manner
    • I won’t be as strict as a school teacher is, but when I assign you work, I expect it by the next lesson or the date indicated
  • I expect you to refrain from using online/physical resources (dictionary or bescherelle) during evaluations
    • Of course, I have no way of actually knowing if you have used resources to help you, but if you do, you’re only hurting yourself
  • I expect you to be responsible
    • Like for anything, you must tell me if you’re going to be away, you can’t do lessons on specific dates, you want me to change the schedule, ect. I need to know so I can plan for that.
  • I expect you to understand that this is something I am doing for free
    • I know this post seems harsh and I come off as rude, but you must understand all the time and effort that goes into running this blog and tutoring people. I hate to say, but if you do not keep up with your work or you fail to tell me changes in your schedule, then I have no other choice but to drop you as a student
  • I expect you to be driven and dedicated
    • Again, this is a rare opportunity. Tumblr can only tell you so much and you can only learn so much from apps. The fact that you will have what is essentially a private tutor is a privilege many on this website want/need. So I expect you to treat this as such. 

If you think you’re willing to do all that, then please send me a message with the forum below.

***If you are not picked, then don’t sweat it. My inbox is always open if anyone wants extra resources or if you have questions. This is simply a step up from learning off of Tumblr.***

anonymous asked:

look i get it its annoying to get asked that over and over but no need to be such a witch about it. this is the internet---lesson one, since you seemed to have failed to have notice--almost no one reads the ToA, FAQ, About, etc. just doesnt happen. so you can continue to waste energy getting pissy or you can ignore/delete the ask in question, because at the end of the day, we all know you're only going to write what you have the inspiration for anyways, so take the begging a compliment, move on

Look, if I am being completely honest, I cannot comprehend why you wasted your time on messaging me this. I understand where you are coming from, but also, instead of seeing this from the perspective of an outsider/reader who believes they are entitled to 1. speak for others in regards to whether they read FAQs or not – seriously, the number of messages that I receive saying: “I couldn’t see my question in your FAQ, so (insert question here)?” completely disproves your statement  – and to 2. tell me in what manner I can and cannot behave on my own blog, how about you just step into my shoes for a moment. Only one moment, because, y’know, who would wanna be a witch like me for any longer than that.

As much as a writer, such as myself, creates for their own entertainment, we also enjoy sharing those creations with others to bring them a slice of that entertainment too. We give, and give, and give. Completely free of charge, done in our own personal time, and without demanding anything in return. Yes, we receive incredibly lovely compliments on our stories, we receive likes and sometimes reblogs, which is a true honour – though they are not things that we rudely demand, nor beg for from our readers like they have to compliment, like, or reblog our works because we want them to. It is a mutual cycle of giving and taking.

Though the thing is that, for a very small minority of these readers, they let this get to their heads and they start to beg or demand for more, most especially when the writer may be putting out content that they love, but it is not the stuff that the readers are specifically wanting. They begin to forget that the writer is not a machine who works by their command, so they begin to speak to and treat them in that way. And sure, you can say that the begging is a “compliment” – but is it really? Personally, and more specifically in regards to that message you are referencing, it has made me feel rushed and forced to write TDSOTI, which I well and truly know it has been about three months since I posted the first part, and thus, I am already feeling the immense pressure to have it finished without getting messages like that. On top of this, I just uploaded the second part of AOFS yesterday that has a count of 14,000+ words, which yeah, may take less than an hour for you to read, but it takes days upon weeks to write. In regards to those who send me these begging and demanding messages about certain stories, it makes me think: “Oh, are they not enjoying the other stories that I’m writing?” and “But I only just posted ___ a day or two ago… Can I not have a break first?” 

We delete these messages, yet they keep coming back until we say something. But when we do say something, we get sweet little messages like your own trying to put us into our supposedly righteous place because we stepped out of line and spoke our true feelings for once.

Welcome to my witchy shoes. Not so comfy, are they?

What I do not understand about your stance on this issue is the moment that we ask our readers for a single thing back, yeah, just one thing; a teeny, tiny thing as simple as reading a few answered questions that take no more than a minute or so to do and 95% of the time provide instant results, you are suggesting that suddenly we, the writers, are the ones being entitled? Lesson one, kid, if a reader does not have the common courtesy to respect a writer’s sole request to read their FAQ, where the reader will literally have their answer within a minute rather than having to wait hours or days for the writer to respond to them with practically the exact same thing; then they are undeserving of respect in return. I apologise, but they are just the facts, and you, my pal, clearly need to take a slice from that steaming respect pie.

All in all, this is not a matter of being justifiably annoyed over begging anons, nor of the way we writers construct our blogs and implement our FAQs for not only us but also for the benefit of our own readers; this is a matter of mutual courtesy and respect between the creators and their audience. Give, and it will be given back. Now please, move on from my blog because you are damn right that this is the internet, and I will not hesitate to block your ass without mercy if you or anyone else messages me bullshit like this again.

One of the worst things is when you’re enjoying a book/tv show/movie and then it just starts going completely off track and it loses you and you’re just like, “Dammit… we could have had it aaaalllll!” And you feel cheated of having the conclusion you felt you deserved, and like you wasted your time on what was ultimately a disappointment. 

Like I was reading a book yesterday with a lot of potential and good characters, but right at the tipping point in the story… the author decided to rush through it and everything blurred. Nothing was really fleshed out and the plot/characters weren’t given the proper room to grow and resolve everything. It was as if the author had a word or page limit and had to fit it all in. Seriously… take the time to let things happen.

Notes: The what’s, when’s and how’s!

Notes are a basic requirement if you’re looking to forge good grades during the school year, but sitting, hunched over your papers for hours on end never seems to be worth it in the end. Most people feel like their notes do little or nothing to help their overall grades so, I’m here to fix that! Here are some types and tricks that I, and other people I know, use to make our notes worth the time and effort!

1. Color coordinate! If your mind is the type that associates color with information, it might be a good idea to try writing down notes in different colors! For example, for vocabulary, write it in blue and for dates, write them in green! Your brain will start associating those colors with the information written and help you remember it better! And plus, it will look super pretty!

2. Don’t rush your notes. Neat handwriting will save your time and energy when you’re trying to study because it will prevent you from wasting time trying to figure out what the heck you even have written down.

3. Color coordinate pages. Buy small post-it notes or something of the same idea and stick one of, say, pink, to the page of notes you wrote and another one of the same color to the page in your textbook that it corresponds with! That way, if you get lost reading over your notes, you can easy find where the notes were taken from and read into them more!

4. Do not write everything down. Seriously, don’t. It’s no use to you if you have the entire textbook re-copied into your notebook. Write down key names, events and definitions, as well as anything else you think may be on a test, and leave the rest! You don’t want to be writing your notes all day and you certainly don’t want to waste the time re-copying a chapter you already read.

5. Read the chapter first. Read the chapter(s) you were assigned once over without stopping to make sure you stay concentrated on it. Taking notes while reading disconnects you from the material and makes it more difficult to retain the information. So, read over the chapter once and then go back and read it again, this time taking notes while you do so. It may take a little extra time but it’s worth it when you realize you actually understand and learned something about the material you just read.

6. Abbreviate, abbreviate, abbreviate! Figure out which words you can shorten (such as because to bc and, for example, things like Bank of the United States can be shortened to BUS) and use symbols (such as arrows, equal signs, the & symbol instead of the word) to maximize the speed at which you write (if you’re taking the notes during a lecture this is a super helpful thing to do!).

7. Keep the highlighting to a minimum. It’s not hard to fall into the habit of highlighting everything on the page while reading. We’ve all been there, but the most important thing to remember is that while everything might seem important, highlighting should be reserved for the really important stuff, not just the kind of important stuff. Overdoing it with the highlighting just makes the things your reading even harder to take notes on, harder on the eyes and just down right a bit more confusing than it should be.

8. Pick your writing instrument wisely. If you find that your handwriting tends to be messier when you write in pen, write your notes in pencil, and vise versa! Also, if you’re prone to making mistakes while writing, make sure you use a writing utensil that’s erasable (erasable pens are a life saver if you prefer pen but make a lot of mistakes)!

9. Start on a new page. Start each class, lecture or topic on a new page! It will prevent your notes from blending into one another and it will make it easier for you to find the notes you’re looking for on future occasions.

10. Make a Table of Contents! This definitely doesn’t work for everyone (I’ll admit, it worked for me on rare occasions) but it’s definitely helpful! Write a number on the bottom of each note page and write it next to the notes title, topic, etc. in your table of contents! It makes it a lot easier to find the notes you want, go back and add things, etc!

11. Make note of repeated information. If your teacher, professor, or textbook, even, repeats a date, event, topic, etc., there’s a reason for it! It’s either going to be on a test, or it’s something you’re going to want to remember when exams roll around! So figure out a method that works for you for marking this information for the future (like drawing a box around it or a star next to it)!

12. Leave space. If you miss something during a lecture, powerpoint, etc., leave a space in your notes where that information would have gone and ask someone what you missed at a later time! Don’t interrupt people trying to ask them what it was, just remember that you need to find out and ask later on.

Why do y'all want Michael Jackson to be a pedophile? What is your goal? Why waste your time? Why aren’t you just thankful that nothing actually happened? Why do y'all trust a recycled tabloid instead of piles and piles of information that his fans give you? Why don’t you ever read it? Why do you call MJ fans ‘crazy lunatics’? Why do get offended when we call you out? Why can’t you just look at the big picture? Why do you do this? I’m curious.

Dance With Me (Kai Smut)

“No, no, no,” you fussed at him. He had messed up the move for the millionth time. “It goes like this,” you said, demonstrating the move once again. “Ah,” he replied, watching you intensely. 

Kai was an amazing dancer, yet it seemed as if he just could not grasp the moves you were trying to teach him. “I will try again,” he said, preparing to do the move. You turned the music back on and mirrored him as he danced. He almost nailed the move when he tripped and messed up. You rushed over and turned the music off. “Are you okay,” you asked, a bit disappointed. “I’m okay,” he assured you.

You brushed your hair out of your face and took a deep breath. “Let’s pick up again tomorrow,” you told him. He nodded and rose to his feet. You waved to him and exited the building.

You got back to your dorm and pulled yourself into the shower. You let the warm water fall over you, washing away the sweat of the day. You couldn’t get your mind off of Kai. He was a sweet guy, but there was this element of mystery to him that made you want more. You found your hands wandering over your body at the thought of him. You were about to climax, but you stopped yourself. You shouldn’t be doing that while thinking about Kai, you told yourself.

You made your way into your bedroom and plopped down on the bed. You fell asleep almost immediately. You jumped up instinctively, realizing you were late because you hadn’t set your alarm. You hopped up and threw on clothes, quickly getting ready and speeding out of the door.

You nearly ran down the sidewalk. You burst through the door of the dance studio, apologizing as you put on the music. You began stretching and saw Kai smirking. “What’s so funny,” you asked, raising an eyebrow. “Oh nothing,” he said, stretching along side of you.

You felt fully warmed up so you switched to the dance music. You showed him the move and then watched him. He was so close to nailing it, but he never followed through at the end. Frustrated, you stopped the music and hung your head in defeat. “What is it about this dance that is so hard for you,” you asked him seriously. He walked up to you, inches from your face. “You are the reason this dance is so hard for me,” he whispered sensually and caused you heart to skip a thousand beats.

“Oh,” was all you could manage to say. He didn’t waste time pressing his lips against yours. You fell into the kiss and took the initiative parting his lips with the tip of your tongue. As the kiss deepened you could feel the moisture between your legs. It was becoming achingly uncomfortable and you squirmed.

He seemed to read your mind, slipping his fingers down your thighs and massaging the outside of your pants right on your sweet spot. You let out a soft moan and this drove him wild. He pulled off your shirt and unhooked your bra, exposing your breasts. 

He leaned down and gave each nipple a tender peck. You shuddered at the sensation. He then yanked off your pants and panties. You unbuttoned his pants and pushed them down, giving the head of his erection one good lick. He couldn’t control himself any longer. He picked you up and slid you onto himself. The wetness made it easy and allowed him to go deep inside of you.

You let out a loud moan this time. He started off slow, but when you tangled your fingers in his hair he quickened his pace steadily. He was thrusting into you, causing you to moan his name repeatedly. He was grunting as he tried to hold back a fast orgasm. You were whining with pleasure and this made him speed up. You were now hollering and could feel yourself about to climax. You let yourself cum this time, and the feeling of you tightening around him sent him into sheer bliss. He released himself powerfully inside of you. 

The power of the orgasm caused him to twitch. And as he came down from the sexual high, he helped you back onto your feet. He came to his senses and pulled you in close. He stared into your eyes and you swore he was looking into your soul. 

“Dance with me forever.”

Are you saying you support PEDOPHILIA since you defend Eun tak and Shin's relationship so strongly?!? I'm sorry but I just can't get into their relationship. She's his niece and he's her uncle who is in his mid 30's. You can't beat facts and numbers. I like Sunny and Grim Reaper way more and also I ship Grim Reaper with Goblin too. Eun tak just needs to grow up and maybe I'll watch it.

I debated long & hard whether I should reply and… well as you can see, I am cause there’s a couple of things that I would like to address… in a respectful manner cause I’m not gonna go around and point fingers like I have the power to judge people. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

So point 1: “Are you saying you support PEDOPHILIA since you defend Eun tak and Shin’s relationship so strongly?!?”

  • Since starting this side-blog, approximately 3 days ago, when have I ever stated that I support pedophilia? Let’s get things straight… I have never considered Shin and Eun-tak’s relationship to be pedophile (definition of pedophile here) cause he has never predatorily sexually desire Eun-tak in a creepy way. Hence, I have been stressing the words innocent, pure, and naive cause that’s what I have analyzed from these 5 episodes and how the director/writer/actors/actresses want us to perceive their relationship. The plot is driven by a “first love” and not the usual love that we’re all used to seeing in k-dramas. So I don’t expect to see make out sessions, close body contact, and whatever else you can think of. Shin isn’t looking for a life-time partner or a hot fling, he’s looking for someone who can see the sword and save him from his pain & suffering of his curse. Have you ever heard of Twilight? Well, the daughter (acted by a child) of the main couple is romantically in love with a were-wolf (who is way older than her) and he returns the same feelings (He fuckin imprints her when she was a baby)… but, hey, it doesn’t matter cause he’s played by the hot Taylor Lautner and vampires/were-wolves don’t exist? Well if that’s the case, Kim Go Eun is 25 yo and Goblins/Grim Reapers/other mystical creatures don’t exist. So my point, don’t go around claiming what people believe, support, etc. until you have facts to defend with. And if you’re still not convinced that I don’t support pedophilia: please read my posts again (Post 1 and Post 2) and tell me where. 

Point 2: “She’s his niece and he’s her uncle who is in his mid 30’s. You can’t beat facts and numbers.”

  • I view, analyze, and observe their relationship in a non-biased perspective. What do I mean by “non-biased” perspective? 1) I’m not going to take into consideration of their “real ages” and their “personal lives” cause it’s irrelevant to me when I’m watching a movie, drama, etc. 2) I’m basing my review on the storyline/plot and I’m not going to talk about deviations from what is seen in each episode - it’s irrelevant to want something that will never happen in released episodes but you can always talk about theories for future episodes. 3) The director and writer are entitled to their work and I will respect that. The actors and actresses are entitled to the way they portray their characters. After all, I’m not the one who’s acting in front of that camera. So whenever I’m watching and reviewing anything, I take into consideration of these three points. So the facts and numbers of this fuckin drama are: 
    • Eun-tak is an innocent, naive, and lonely 19 yo who may act immature sometimes, but has a really big/loving heart. 
    • Shin is a lonely and sometimes awkward 939 yo goblin who doesn’t know the first thing about love, but he genuinely cares for and wants to protect Eun-tak because she is special to him. 

Point 3: “I like Sunny and Grim Reaper way more and also I ship Grim Reaper with Goblin too. Eun tak just needs to grow up and maybe I’ll watch it.”

  • Yes, Sunny and GR are super cute together and I can’t wait to see more development of their relationship; however, I don’t ship GR and Goblin. Now this doesn’t mean I don’t ship homosexual relationships (if you view my main blog, I’m a very open-minded person of all types of relationships). Why? The plot would be different and we wouldn’t have the beautiful story given to us in this drama. I love their bromance and the drama wouldn’t be the same without it, but I know it’s not going to happen and I’m not going to waste my time shipping them cause I’m genuinely more interested in the actual plot/story (so that encompasses the canon couples). You’re definitely entitled to your tastes, preferences, ships, etc. and I don’t mind at all. Sometimes I’m also fangirling over Goblin and GR too! But when it comes to seriously discussing the plot, I deviate from non-canon ships. Lastly, I’m honestly tired of having to re-explain myself on the issue of Eun-tak’s age that you can read my posts. I’m just going to say that people who complain about her immaturity, etc. have really high and unrealistic standards of how a lonely 19 yo should act - but if you were super mature and had your shit together at that age then I applaud you whole-heartedly and you can lecture her all you want. 

Next time, dear Anon, if you have stuff you wanna discuss I’m all down for respectful dialogue. But please don’t hide behind Anon to make judgements on people just because you don’t see eye to eye - that’s pathetic.

GTae for MAMA2015

I’m going to freely express myself based on my biased and delusional observations (as well as other viewers whom I discussed these with) during the whole event, which I watched from my television while occasionally checking out Instagram & Twitter for some fancams. Here are some of the cheap moments that G-Dragon & Taeyeon shared.

Caution: Don’t waste your time reading this trash if you’re not willing to spazz with me. You’ll waste the same amount of time I spend writing this with you reading this. My intended audiences are for my fellow shippers only. This is not to be taken seriously. Again, only for G-Tae supporters/shippers to spazz with since we’ve been waiting for this event to arrive.

Remember: MAMA2015GTAE

If you’re like me, the struggle of reading a book for fun while studying is all too real. There’s just not enough time in the day.

When I was at university, the idea of setting aside reading for fun for studying was so ridiculous to me that I made more than a few bad decisions. Decisions such as staying up all night reading or not studying for days because “Just one more page”.

Here are some ways I’ve learnt over the years to manage my time in order to keep reading for fun while studying.
