Lock It Up

4,500 Followers Drabble

Summary: Jensen tries to play off being scared in a haunted house but the reader isn’t buying it.

Pairing: Jensen x Reader

Halloween Request: @luci-in-trenchcoats


You and Jensen are currently in downtown New York, navigating through a somewhat shady area on the way to a haunted attraction. Jensen’s watching as you crack yourself up, you mentioned forgetting the salt and then burst into laughter.

Jensen snorts at your goofiness, it being one of the many traits that draws him to you. It being the sole reason that you two are in each other’s lives in the first place. In the fifth grade, you told him a corny joke during recess, ‘What do you call a pig who knows karate? Porkchop!’ And from that moment on he was totally smitten over you.

“I see it!” You bounce on your heels, then grab Jensen’s hand to literally drag him across the bustling street.

“You excited, Ackles?” You ask your best friend speeding towards the already creepy, fog filled entrance.

Pairing: Jungkook x Reader

Genre: angst, fashion designer Jungkook AU,

Summary:  Your life was nothing but a drag until you met Jeon Jungkook, the alluringly beautiful fashion design student who asked you to model for his upcoming runway show. Soon you find yourself pulled into his eccentric group of friends and their enticing world of fashion, sex and music, a world that may ultimately leave your heart in pieces.

Inspired by the anime/manga Paradise Kiss ♥


You can still remember the first time you saw Jungkook, standing under the tacky neon lights of the nightclub, cigarette planted firmly in his hand. His black tousled hair, deep smoky eyeliner and tight fitting ripped jeans made him look like the human embodiment of lust. Even in the poor lighting, he was simply radiant. His perfection and beauty so overwhelming it was almost like a deformity, separating him from the rest of the world, making him seem alien.

You had been walking back from a late night study session at your friend’s house, clutching your phone tightly in your palms out of fear. You’d always hated walking home alone at night. It made you feel vulnerable, like someone could jump out at you at any given moment. 

Of course, your fears weren’t entirely irrational but deep down you knew it was unlikely that anyone would harm you. However, you always got particularly nervous when you walked through this area of town, “the shady area” as you liked to call it.

Your footsteps echoed through the street as you quickly walked, wanting to get home as soon as possible. Thankfully there hadn’t been many hanging around outside the bars and clubs, one girl had her arm around her friend as she vomited into a gutter and a few people stood around in small groups talking and smoking. Just as you had reached the end of the street, when the few people present had thinned out you saw him. Standing outside the very last club.

As you walked passed him, he gave you a look and smirked slightly. You don’t really remember exactly how you’d felt at that first look, but you can recall how it seemed like he knew everything about you, like with one quick glance he could analyse every detail of your life and stare into your very soul. Even then, you could tell his eyes were an endless riddle, filled with possibilities and emotions that were near impossible to read all at once.

Your pace quickened even more to escape his gaze and out of the corner of your eye you saw him chuckle to himself, drop his cigarette onto the floor, stump it out with his shoe and head back inside.

It was meant to end there. You were never meant to meet Jungkook again. He was only ever meant to be a stranger.

Of course, fate always had a way of intervening.

I’ve just come back from a school fair/car boot sale and it was super sunny and hot so I thought I’d share some of my own thoughts on the Egos on a day out somewhere sunny
I couldn’t think of anymore but I might make another post if I get more ideas:

- Dr Iplier is the one that takes all the suncream, he knows exactly which egos will put it on before they go (Bim, Bop, himself and the Host most likely) and which will not (Wilford, the Googles, Silver, Ed, King and Bing). And Dark of course refuses to accept he may need suncream.
- Un-ironically he’s the one that gets sunburnt easiest, but he doesn’t know it.
- Dark once got sunburn on his back after Wilford called him chicken for not wearing appropriate beach clothing and he wore swimming trunks.
- Wilford slapped him right in the sunburn and Dark lost it.
- It’s not spoken about when Dark is around because his shell shatters when it’s brought up but Wilford is still proud of the moment.
- There are some of the egos that hate being directly in the sun because of the heat, so they always take a big umbrella with them so those guys have a shady area to sit.
- This is super important for Bing and the Googles as they can overheat easily.
- Bim never fails to find a new plant he’s never seen in the wild before, without fail no matter where they go.
- Ed drives them all everywhere and is a definitely user of “So help me I will turn this car around!”
- So is Dark. He always sits shotgun, although there have been times when he’s been forced into the back, usually between Wilford and Yandere.
- Never let Wilford have the map, you’ll never get to the intended destination.
- King brings back a memento from all their trips, usually a rock or stone or some kind of tree related thing for his subjects to admire.
- Bing once tried to surf with Bop, only to be stopped in the nick of time by Host and Dr Iplier, since he can’t go in water with his robotic body.
- Silver still wears his ridiculous big gloves and subsequently can’t put suncream on so someone else has to do it.
- The amount of crap they come back with from days out is insane and Dark has several rooms put aside where the junk that will never gets used again gets dumped.
- No one has been murdered or hurt, yet, but some of the egos have come close. (Mostly Yandere and Wilford, accidently).

MBTI Types as Pools

ENTP: Basically a theme park with water. Games, rides, and… cotton candy?
ENTJ: There is wifi accessible from every part of the pool. You go there to see people on laptops and phones getting work done while floating on the lazy river or drinking a margarita.
ENFP: The whole thing has the ambiance of a luau with tropical flowers and bamboo furniture. At night they have the unofficial tradition of lighting a bonfire and making s'mores.
ENFJ: Everyone pretty much forgets that it’s a pool and not a cafe. People show up just to talk and hang out.
ESTP: Water is being splashed everywhere; there is complete anarchy; the life guards have waged war on the managerial staff and poolgoers are taking sides.
ESTJ: The most organized establishment you have ever laid eyes on. They have also discovered that the most effective way to limit the line for the waterslide is to make it go about 40mph (met with mixed reactions from parents).
ESFP: Slides. Lot of slides. “That one goes upside down; how does that even work?”
ESFJ: The amount of sun reflected off of the water is matched only by the sunny personalities of the staff. Those at the ice cream bar will sneak you a free cookie with your order if you’re discreet enough.
INTP: It is simply a mess of different shapes and features all mashed into one weird pool… but it works.
INTJ: There is an interactive system to match each individual with their optimal chair. Light and fountain show at 9.
INFP: The pool is open 24/7 for all of your nighttime poolgoing needs. It looks similar to INTP’s with many small areas, and a shady area for hammocks nearby.
INFJ: The oversized hot tub is the main attraction of the pool. It overflows into the pool in a huge waterfall.
ISTP: It’s more of a lake or pond than a pool. The wooden bridges are a highlight of the whole thing, as is the rope that kids use to swing into the water.
ISTJ: The only word to describe it is lagoon. It’s a beautiful serene area you feel free to relax and exist in.
ISFP: As many fountains as you can count. They are very fun to swim in, or relaxing to listen to as you collect your thoughts.
ISFJ: It’s a sandy-bottom pool with lots of trees and shade to relax by, a welcome escape from the world around you.

Small things that could hint at future alter videos:

“I haven’t got you scheduled for an interview yet”
“I put all those characters on a room for a reason”
The googles, why did he need three more murder bots.
There is generally still so much shady area around characters such as The host, Dark, and Wilford.

ESPECIALLY THE HOST.
The guy could narrate himself into a god as far as we know yet he sits there complacently letting Wilford and Dark run the show.

The Black Heron also known as the Black Egret,  is found south of the Sahara Desert, including Madagascar, and prefers shallow open waters, such as the edges of freshwater lakes and ponds. 

The Black Heron has an interesting hunting method called canopy feeding— it hunches over and spreads its wings just like an umbrella, thereby creating a shady patch to block sunlight allowing them  to see better. It also lulled fish into a false sense of security by making them think that either night has fallen or the shady area is a safe refuge [x].

OK..

I am 100% pleased more people are talking about the importance of enrichment now. But I fear it is starting to become a bit of a buzzword and not everyone seems to “get” what enrichment is really about. It’s not like.. A weekly chore you do for your reptiles. It’s not bombarding them with new things all the time.. It’s the foundation of your enclosure design. It applies to the way you offer hides, heat and light too. There seems to be a bit of confusion,  shown by a few discussions yesterday, as to what enrichment really IS. And this has also raised concerns from others that new keepers or those unfamiliar with reptile behaviour will stress out their animals despite good intentions. Indeed a valid concern. But to clarify: One of the main goals of environmental enrichment is to REDUCE stress and bordem.   

Enrichment is about choice and giving an animal control over its own environment. Not about “shaking things up” all the time.

“Enrichment is a dynamic process for enhancing animal environments within the context of the animal’s behavioural biology and natural history. Environmental changes are made with the goal of increasing the animals behavioural choices and drawing out their species-appropriate behaviours, thus enhancing animal welfare.”

- 1999 AZA Behavioural Scientific Advisory Group.

Yo yo yo. Its TillAllAreImagined on my personaalll. Yandere RiD15 Bee, Fixit, and Grim with s/o being flirted with. (s/o isn't liking it either)

i love u omfg


Yandere!RiD15


Bumblebee

- As soon as he spots you being flirted with, it’s almost like hell was released on Earth. He sternly walks up to you both, poker-faced but practically radiating anger. He asks you if whoever’s flirting is bothering you, and as soon as you say yes, he gently grabs you by the wrist/picks you up and walks away.

- Afterward, he’s a jealous, affectionate mess. You’re trapped in the embrace of a pouty bot, who behind his adorably jealous exterior, is plotting the murder/sabotage of whoever was flirting with you.


Grimlock

- Without skipping a beat, Grim transforms into dino mode and starts growling at the object of his jealousy, wrapping around you possessively. This behavior is only intensified by you curling back against him, grumpy from the interaction with whoever was flirting with you. You’re half-tempted to just let Grim go ham on the poor soul, but instead just ask if he can take you out of there so you can both cuddle. He doesn’t refuse.

- You end up scooped up and carried off to a secluded, shady area, sleeping with him curled up around you in his dino mode; while he may-or-may-not be dreaming of chasing down and mauling the person who was flirting with you. :^)


Fixit

- Fixit is a shier yandere, and less prone to intervention, but he can’t help but intervene when he sees just how uncomfortable you are. He’s stuttery, but gets his point across when he turns up his head in disgust at the object of his jealousy, gently holding your hand and walking off with you. You can’t help but be a little smug.

- You end up cuddling and playing video games afterwards. Fixit feels a lot better when he’s curled up against you, snuggled into your arms as he plays dumb online games you don’t know the name of.

Allium ursinum, Amaryllidaceae

If you have ever walked in the woods in temperate parts of Europe, particularly in the British Isles, you might have happened to smell something garlicky during spring, right when the buds are breaking up in the trees. Ramsons, wood or bear’s garlic - it is known in a few more ways just in English - was probably the culprit. Here in Scotland its white star-shaped flowers follow the small and often solitary ones of A. paradoxum, another common Allium which I’ll write about in a different post. 

All parts of the plant are edible and often harvested from the wild, but it is also easy to establish in a garden, especially in the shady and humid areas avoided by many other plants with higher light requirements. If you are foraging in the woods I would suggest harvesting the plant when the flower stalk has already given away its identity, together with the smell, as the young shoots emerging from the ground can be pretty similar to some toxic spring geophytes, like Convallaria majalis, the lily of the valley. I remember A. ursinum in the woods in northern Italy, but it looks a lot more at home and plentiful here in Scotland. 

🔥🌞 May 26th is National Heat Awareness Day! 🌞🔥

With the weather warming up in many places it’s important to make sure that we’re all staying safe! Warm weather can feel good for a lot of us but it can also be very dangerous. Please be aware of the temperature where you are and how your body reacts during extreme heat. Keep a bottle of water with you at all times and make sure you’re staying hydrated, avoid over exertion, remember to wear sunscreen, and go inside or to a cool, shady area when you get too hot. If you drive also remember to LOOK before you LOCK if you have pets or children who will be traveling with you and make sure not to leave them unattended in a car. And if you can try to check up on sick or elderly people you may know or just anyone you know who does not have air conditioning to make sure that they are okay and safe during times of extreme heat!

Your headcanons are the absolute best I swear ❤ Do you have anymore Fun Ghoul ones? Or anymore about the fab fours relationships to one another?

- Ghoul is not to be trusted with any Important Item
- It’s not that the guys don’t trust him (okay maybe a little) - he’s just very forgetful and absent minded
- If you bother him when he’s in The Zone™ it’s your funeral
- Some people??? blow things up to cope????
- A bit more emotionally distant than the others but they love him anyway.
- They all swear like sailors but Ghoul gives the rest a run for their money
- Connections in shady areas
- Surprisingly good at making jewelry and other accessories?
- Mediocre glass blower (he’s trying tho….)

 “…Uhhghh…”

    Amy’s eyes painfully fluttered open. She covered them with her hand to protect them from a bright orange light. She found herself leaning against a tree with a baby blue blanket draped over her. Amy took a few deep breaths, looking to her side to see nothing but green plants and trees. She turned to her left and her right, her neck ached as she did so. The sun was setting on the horizon.

  She opened her mouth to say something, but words couldn’t reach her. Her head was pounding and her muscles were all sore. Her blood felt like molasses and for some reason, she felt extremely heavy. Every ounce of her being was telling her to just go back to sleep and never wake up.

Nessian (Post ACOWAR) Pt. 3

Here’s the next part! I was super rushed while I was writing this so I apologize for any mistakes! I think this is going to be shorter than my elriel fic because of my schedule lately! But I hope you still like it! :D Later I’m going to come back and triple check it haha :)

Pt. 1

Pt. 2


Walking down the street, Nesta’s arm was linked with Elain’s as they took in the beautiful day in Velaris. The sun that had felt scorching hot while she was training was now high in the sky and gave off the perfect amount of warmth. Kids were running up and down the streets, passing by shops and waving to the owners as they went. A year ago, Nesta would have never imagined a place like this in Prythian. Now, she was finally starting to look at Velaris as home.

Feyre and Rhys were walking up ahead, Feyre resting her head on the High Lord’s shoulder while their hands were intwined. Nesta felt a bit of jealousy rising inside her, at what her sister had. She knew that she could have that as well, with just a few words, but she wanted to wait. She wanted it to be the right time.

Cassian and Azriel were snickering about something Mor said, and Nesta turned to see them a little ways behind her. Nesta didn’t know what had come over her in that moment, but something about the way Cassian had laughed—a way he never did with her—made her stop walking.

“Nesta?” Elain sounded concerned and Nesta knew she could see the storm growing in her eyes.
