sharing hobbies

jake and amy’s relationship is one of the best heterosexual relationships i’ve come across in a while because: 

  • it’s an interracial relationship between an ashkenazi jewish man and a latina (specifically cuban) woman 
  • it’s genuinely loving, healthy, and dorky 
  • they support each other and they make each other better. their relationship adds to their happiness instead of taking away from it 
  • they always communicate and resolve conflicts maturely 
  • they retain their independence, personalities, goals, and ambitions while still sharing each other’s hobbies and ideas and enjoying each other’s favorite activities 
  • they don’t let their relationship get in the way of their career, goals, or obligations 
  • they have their own lives outside of their relationship and we actually get to see them navigate the lines between a professional and romantic relationship 
  • unlike most het ships, amy’s autonomy and personality aren’t reduced to jake. she isn’t jake’s love interest - she’s a main character of her own and her relationship with jake is just one part of her storyline and character 
  • unlike most het ships, jake doesn’t bemoan being in a committed relationship. he loves amy wholeheartedly and is willing to do anything for her, and his friends actually support him instead of mocking him for that  
  • they were friends before anything else. which means that they actually have fun. there’s nothing toxic or unhealthy about their relationship because it isn’t mired in heteronormative, misogynistic stereotypes. that is, they have a realistic and authentic dynamic because it isn’t all about ~ooh passion and melancholy and angst~. they’re cute and fluffy and it’s always presented as a good thing 

I never liked the idea of Will’s dad being a jerk, (like he is in ALL fics) I always thought he was just a guy that didn’t know how to express his love for his son in more open ways, after all Will never talked in a bad way about him, and even some of the things he loves are things his dad taught him.

I ended up joking over twitter that his dad was Ron bc they share many hobbies and the way they live, and well a joke led up to this…(Hannigram are still on the run tho  but Ron doesn’t watch tv and lives in the middle of nowhere so he doesn’t know/care his son-in-law is a serial killer) 

Hannibal will never let Will live down that his dad accepted him officially, Will regrets it so much

Bonus (how do you know what human meat tastes like wtf?!?!)

amazonfam  asked:

Reddie first date maybe? 😊

I tried super hard with this one but I kept getting distracted by random stuff, I’m sorry for any typos and I hope you like it

- Richie takes Eddie on ‘dates’ all the time

- and by ‘dates’ Richie means he’s excuse for buying stuff for Eddie

- 'It’s okay babe, I’ll buy popcorn this is a date’

- 'You want ice cream? This date isn’t complete without ice cream’

- however their first official date was something Eddie won’t forget

- They’re 17 when they finally go on their first real date

- Richie spent a long time planning and saving up money from his part time job so he can make it the best day ever

- Richie decides to share a precious hobby of him with Eddie and takes him to the arcade

- 'Eddie, if you’re going to become the best part of my life you need to know what you’re replacing okay’

- 'Street fighter?….really?’

- Richie just hugs him from behind as Eddie stand in front of the video games

- Eventually Richie shoves his money into the machine and tells Eddie to battle him

- He stands behind Eddie, he arms reaching around him to reach the buttons

- They play street fighter for like hours

- Eddie gets really competitive and Richie is trying to tell him how to do stuff but he’s just pressing all the buttons in hopes of winning

- Eddie does in fact end up winning and Richie is so s h o o k

- because how DARE anyone beat him at street fighter

- Afterwards, Richie takes Eddie’s hand and leads him out the arcade

- he takes him to this cute retro diner and orders them milkshakes

- Eddie is so happy because look at Richie, being all romantic and shit

- Eddie grabs his hand across the table

- however he lets go when Richie decides to blow bubbles in his milkshake

- 'Stop being embarrassing’

- 'Stop being a killjoy, let me enjoy my bubbles’

- Richie insists he pays, even though he has to battle Eddie to give his money to their waitress first

- Richie walks Eddie home holding hands and saying he might stay over for a little to see Mrs K

- Richie does actually end up staying over but no for mrs k

- Eddie didn’t let go of his hand or even turn around to Richie, he just went inside and took Richie upstairs

- It was also pretty late by the time they got home

- so Eddie threw some spar clothes at Richie and demanded he stayed the night

- Richie of course didn’t complain at all

- any chance to snuggle his Eddie spaghetti he’ll take

- Eddie lays down first as Richie smokes out the window

- 'Those will kill you one day, you do know that right?’

- Richie doesn’t reply, just puts his cigarette out and walks over to the bed

- when he gets there he pretends to die and falls against Eddie’s chest, limbs sprawling everywhere

- Eddie just wraps his arms around Richie’s head, shoves his face against his hair and closes his eyes

- 'Are you not even a little sad I’m dead?’

- Eddie just pulls him closer

- Richie takes that as his sign to shut up so wraps Eddie up with his arms and presses his face against his neck

- Eddie would agree that some people may have had more exciting first dates but his was perfect in its own way purely because of who he spend it with

  • Psychic: wow what a bop
How to tell if The Signs like you
  • Aries: Will be more bubbly, and have less of a mean streak. Will be really fun around you.
  • Taurus: They'll probably try to be with you as much as possible. Won't say much, and will probably try to grab your arm or something.
  • Gemini: Something they do the most: Talk to you, A LOT. They might ask more about you and act interested in what you talk about.
  • Cancer: Will be very low-key around you. Will look at you with starry eyes. They might even open up more to you (more for male than female).
  • Leo: Most likely will try to be really funny around you. They'll just have that look in their eyes that says that they're enthralled.
  • Virgo: They'll probably be super nice to you, and help you with anything that you need. They may even try to do something cute to get your attention. Prepare for a lot of jokes (they might be funny).
  • Libra: Will show a more softer side of them that they don't show to everyone else. But they'll be kinda mean in a joking way.
  • Scorpio: They will share their interests and hobbies with you. Won't be as salty. They may even stare at you a little. When I say little I mean A LOT.
  • Sagittarius: They'll never even make fun of you, even in a joking way. Sagittarius' will be really sweet and will do anything for you. Very loyal.
  • Capricorn: Will start to open up to you. This takes a lot of time. Like Virgo, a lot of jokes, so prepare yourself. Won't say anything somewhat romantic, but will serve you.
  • Aquarius: Has a more independent, and detached kind of love. But will care for you deeply. They'll stand up for you of someone even does something the don't approve of to you.
  • Pisces: At first, will deny they have feelings for you. But in time they start to soften at the idea of love and will try to be as casual as possible. But when they love you. they mean it.
Unrequited (part 1)

Pairing: Bucky x Reader; Sam x Reader (friendship)

A/N: This is my first [published] fic, was not requested obviously, just something that has been around on my mind. I am thinking about making it a series with part 2 in Bucky’s POV. Feedback is always welcomed let me know what you think!

Summary: You are new in the tower and have a crush on Bucky, but he does not feel the same way and you overheard him.

Warnings: lots of Angst, Bucky being sort of a douche, alcohol consumption (?)

“That new girl, Y/N, is pretty cute don’t you think?” Sam said. You were currently hiding in the corridor, not that you were purposely eavesdropping, no, it happened by chance, you were walking to the kitchen feeling like doing some experimental cooking, your spirits were high you had a good week and you were almost skipping through the tower when you heard voices. Sam and Bucky chatting. About women. You needed to know, because it was undeniable to you now that you had a huge infatuation on Bucky, only after a week. Granted the man was a beautiful specimen of male perfection but it wasn’t just about that, the way he moved, the way he spoke, damn it Y/N get a grip

You arrived at the tower as a new administrative assistant, hired by Tony after an extensive background check. Working with Tony Stark was pretty much a career dream for you, little did you know it also came with the perks of living in the tower and getting to know the Avengers. Rent for free, a generous paycheck, how could you resist.

Back to the present, Sam Wilson seemed to be teasing James Buchanan “Bucky” Barnes about you, you almost squealed in delight, but you kept quiet.
“Nah, I have seen prettier” Bucky answered. Your heart sank, yeah, you were no Black Widow, but you weren’t  ugly, were you?

“C’mon man, she is funny and smart too,”  Sam interjected. you left right there, you did not want Barnes to destroy your confidence in your wits too, your spirits were crashed already and you no longer felt like cooking, or eating, rejection albeit indirect had a horrible toll on you. So you silently left the way you came, towards your bedroom.

You laid in bed running your mind. A knock came around dinner. Sam asking if you wanted to join them. Spaghetti, your favorite. In turn, you declined and turned in early.

The weekend was uneventful, everyone did there on thing. You caught up with your ever-growing pile of books to be read, running into Bucky a couple of times, and exchanging a few words, it still hurt, his words, but after following your favorite characters around in adventures and their own heartbreaks you couldn’t help but feel better, and that way you entered the second week of work.

Soon you established a friendship with Sam, and the weeks started to pass peacefully. You teased each other and joked nonstop, your humor was so similar it was easy being around him. That came with Bucky company sometimes, especially in late afternoons when you finished work and you and Sam liked to chill to good music and drinks. Bucky was quiet most of the time, but observant. You were aware of his eyes observing you, assessing everything.
You tried to forget your crush and act normal since he was clearly not interested. Bucky was not a womanizer per se, but he had his fair share of one night stands that, to your bewilderment and disappointment, looked exactly the opposite of you.

One of those fortuitous afternoons Sam decided to make himself scarce claiming he had a bad week and wanted to turn in early, you would have bought it were it not for his concealed smirk, he was up to no good and you knew it.

“Hey Buck,” you greeted him, surprised when he entered the lounge where you were having some quality time by yourself, “didn’t you have a date?” that came out unexpected, you though.

Bucky looked at you and after a bit, he said, “I blew her off, I didn’t feel like going” He looked at you intently, as if measuring your reaction, and through himself on the couch next to yours. You squirmed under his unflinching gaze, “do you want a drink?” you offered.

“Sure,” he said, “I’ll have what you are having”. You pour a glass of wine and offered it to him. His fingers brushed yours and lingered a second too long, you look at him, into his stormy blue eyes, and your breath hitched, your heart beating at a fast rhythm. You pulled back first bewildered, and quickly made your way to your sit.

Bucky’s eyes were still on you you could feel them. But you didn’t want to look at him, you were confused, unsure, and that was something you didn’t like. He on the other hand, seemed completely in his element,  were you the only one feeling the tension?

“How was your week?”, he inquired. Surprised, yet again, you coughed “Quiet, quieter than usual that is, but anything I do must seem boring compared to your job”, you added trying to joke, after that the silence and the tension grew. Bucky finished his glass of wine and stood, you thought he was going to leave but instead he picked the book you left on the coffee table and came to sit next to you.

“I saw you reading this the other day, what is it about?” You picked it up, The Fellowship of the Ring, one of your favorites, of the ones you re-read for comfort.

“Well..:” you smirked and just like that the evening passed with you talking books with Bucky, it seemed you shared that hobby.

Later that night, while you tried to sleep, you would recap every single moment of that evening. The way he looked at you was so… intense, not exactly friendly and that only made it more confusing. He was different that much was obvious, but he was also different with you, and since he already stablished he didn’t like you, you couldn’t wrap your mind as to what it meant. As so many nights before you feel asleep thinking of Bucky, only this time you were certain your feelings were stronger than you thought.

BEHOLD: some plots i thought of when i was half asleep !

  • a plot where muse a is a photographer and in walks muse b, a new model for their newest campaign, who also happens to be muse a’s ex. 
  • a f/f plot where they’re in the same sorority and they’re tight end straight gals until they’re dared to kiss during a childish game of truth or dare, and suddenly they’re questioning everything they’ve ever known. cue the secret kisses and sex in each other’s rooms but hiding it because they’re not ready for the entire sorority to figure it out until they do first.
  • muse a and muse b are sick of living the single life and so as a “joke” they both fill out a survey to get paired up with somebody who shares their same hobbies. cut to the chase, muse a and muse b are paired together and whoops! “why did they pair me with you? i fuckin’ hate u" why they hate each other can be determined )
  • muse a has been in love with their best friend since they were kids, but suddenly muse b, said best friend’s step sibling from a fresh new marriage comes into town and wow…. ur something else and i wanna explore u instead
Spirit Companionship Misconceptions

With the rise in people coming across the community, I thought it might be time to explain the common misconceptions that arise, and try to ease everyone’s mind a little. Now, while for a majority the misconceptions are false, there can be unethical people out there who take advantage of spirits and people alike, and these people show up everywhere, not just in spirit companionship.

1. Bindings are restrictive and hurt the spirits.

This is one of the most common misconceptions, and fortunately it is not true for most places. With most shops and spirit companions, the binding only acts as a means to allow the person and spirit to communicate easily. 

Most bindings consist of the energy that the spirit adds to it, and any spells for protection and safety that the shop or companion may add to make sure that the spirit will not be harmed. Many bindings are also made with a contract, which makes it so that the spirit may break the binding at any time. 

2. The spirit is forcibly put into the vessel/is trapped in the vessel.

The vessel actually acts more like a cell phone, and is just a physical object that is connected to the binding. The spirits are free to do whatever they like, and go where ever they like, and the vessel just allows for them and their companions to communicate and connect with each other, no matter how far away they may be from each other. 

The spirit does not live in the vessel, and many of them are not even around their companion 24/7. They have their own lives, their own homes, and go off and do their own thing.

3. The spirits in shops are not there willingly.

With many shops, the spirits are actually the ones who come to them, instead of the owners seeking the spirits out. The spirits go to the shops for many reasons: they trust the shop owner, they know that the shop vets the companions or won’t make them go with someone they don’t feel drawn to, they feel like it’s safer to go to a shop instead of meeting a random person on the street, etc.

4. You are buying a person/paying someone to give you a person.

This is a common idea, and while I understand where it is coming from, it just isn’t true. The only thing you are paying for is the time and energy the shop puts into finding a willing spirit.

Think of it like a matchmaking service over here. You pay the service to help you find someone who you can get along with and who may share your interests or hobbies. You wouldn’t say you were buying a person from one of those services would you? This is the same concept, you are paying the shop for the time, energy, and work it takes for them to find a spirit who wants to work with you.

5. All shops are the same. 

The only thing that shops have in common, is that they all have their own practices and do things their own way. You may get along better with one shop, and absolutely love how they do things, while you may not get along with another. It happens, and it happens with anywhere.

This also shows up as the next misconception:

6. All shops are bad. 

All shops are different, and many shops are as ethical as they can be, and treat spirits with dignity and respect, and would never work with a spirit that does not want to work with them. 

There are good shops, and there are bad shops, but a majority of the shops are good. Please don’t generalize and lump all shops together.

These are all I can do for now! If there are any misconceptions that you would like to see covered, send us an ask with it and we’ll add it to the list as soon as possible!

BTS REACTION : their gf likes eating healthy and exercising

can’t relate lol

request : Hello! Can I get a reaction of BTS when their gf likes exercising and eating well? 🤗👌❤️


He would like the fact that you were healthy and fit and he would sometimes help you cook healthy meals. However, he was sometimes concerned if you changed your eating habits in order to just be healthy or in order to lose weight.

“Being healthy is great babe, but don’t focus too much on it too ! Don’t over exercise and allow yourself some cheat meals, ok?”


Yoongi would admire the fact that you were healthy and liked to exercise. You would sometimes ask him to join you at the gym, but he was rarely up for it.

“I’ll pass the offer babe ! I seriously don’t know how you’re motivated to work out all the time, but it’s great !”


Hoseok really enjoyed spending his time with you and always joined you to work out. The two of you would go to the dance studio and dance for hours non-stop.


At first, Namjoon admired your willingness to eat healthier and work out, but after a long time of eating healthy foods all the time, he would share his honest thoughts with you.

“Babe, it’s great that you want to be fit and stuff, but to be honest I’m kinda tired to eat healthy foods all the time… I really need pizza you know?”


Jimin would be very supportive and he would even join you in your new eating habits and lifestyle. He would always eat the healthy food you prepared and always joined you at the gym. You would make the perfect healthy couple.


Taehyung liked the fact that you were healthy, but he was sometimes concerned that you were working out too much. He would share his honest thoughts.

“Babe, what you’re doing is great but I feel like I don’t see you as much because you’re always at the gym and I have a busy schedule… We should find a solution to that…”


Jungkook would often join you in exercising and liked the fact that you both shared the same hobby.

“Working out with you is great and stuff, but food wise… WE NEED MORE PIZZA ! We’ve been eating too healthy for the past week !”
