short giraffe


Dear ‘Raffe (Short for giraffe),

It’s weird. Our relationship still excites me like brand new shoes although we’ve walked so far together already. I decided yesterday, amidst leaving subtle kisses along your neck and jaw as you snored your life away, that I’m going to give you all of me.

At this point, you may be wondering what I’ve been giving you all of this time if it isn’t all of me… and I can tell you… I’ve been giving all of what I thought I could. Something about last night, in the moments that I could feel your belly rise up and down, grazing my own ribs in rhythm, that I realized, with you, I’m not scared to be more, to be anything and everything. You revive, ignite, and create parts of me I killed, put to sleep or wasn’t aware of at all.

You make me proud to carry all of my identities. I feel pretty and handsome. I feel strong lifting you in the air or being bent over by you. You speak to every part of me.

You’ll stumble on this post  in a few minutes or weeks, depending on when you feel like perusing my Tumblr. I hope you understand how you make me feel in this moment.


~ Love

BLFC badge: Zarafa

Another surprise badge gift for this friend, a particular dancing purple short-necked giraffe. He’s Zarafa
A very rare specie but for sure is someone you’d love to meet in person.

I loved so much the reaction of him when I hung this badge along with all his others, I can repeat that moment in my head a thousand of times XD It was on the fursuit lounge at BLFC 2017, during the rave.

Dating Sam and Being Short

• First things first, he is such a little shit

• He absolutely loves teasing you for your height

• And using your head or shoulder as an arm rest

• bending down to your height

like the first pic on that damned “how to talk to short people” meme

• “Sam, I swear to God if you don’t stand up straight…”
“Then what? What’ll happen?”

• Once you acted like you were gonna hit him for that and he promptly put his hand against your forehead and held you back

• he was dying laughing while you cursed at him

• he likes to grab things that are high up that he knows you’re reaching for and smirk at you when you glare at him

• he gets really worried about if you climb on stuff to reach things

• he would have a step stool for you within the hour

• “Hey, babe-“
“Yeah? Sam, don’t interrupt me. Anyways-“
“Baby? Love? Darling? Where are you?!
“I’m right here. Look down.”
“Y/n? Nooo! My baby is gone! What am I gonna do?”
“Sam, I swear. Look down, you tall shit.”

• He thinks he’s really funny

he’s not

• “How’s the weather up there, tree top?”
“Ohhh tall jokes? Very cute, shorty.”

• he actually thinks your height is really cute

• if you get insecure about it he immediately wraps you in his arms and tells you all the good things about your height

• “You don’t have to worry about ducking when you go through doors, that’s pretty great if you ask me. You get to be front and center in group pictures, never lost in the crowd or forgotten. Though that would be hard anyways with your looks. Leg room isn’t a huge issue for you, trust me, these long legs come with a price. You’re the perfect size to be my little spoon! And hey, you know what? I don’t have to leave you behind when I go places, I could probably just fit you right in my pocket.”

• when he hears you giggle at that he lets out a happy sigh and places a kiss on top of your head

• so many height related nicknames

• “Short ass.”
“Elf on the shelf.”

• no matter how much he teases you, you’ll always have something to come back

even if it takes 2-3 business days for you to come up with it

• so!!! Many!!! Forehead!!! Kisses!!!

anonymous asked:

I feel like prompt number 1 would be fun and different to read 😂

Okay I seriously love you for asking for this one because as soon as I saw the list I had a brilliant idea for this so yaaaay. Here we go, I hope you like. <3 

1. The skirt is supposed to be this short.

Even threw his head back, his entire body shaking from the laughter consuming him to the point where he couldn’t see anything but stars. He finally took a few breaths trying to calm himself down, as he looked back at Isak, red faced and tears shining his blue eyes. 

“Oh baby this is just. I mean I am flattered that you would dress up for me but-” 

He was cut off by the couch cushion hitting him square in the jaw which set off another giggle fit. 

Isak rolled his eyes and placed a hand on his hip which just made the entire situation even more amusing for Even who found himself unable to stop laughing again. 

Even calmed himself down and took in Isak fully. He was standing in front of Even glaring down at him wearing a red and white cheerleading out fit. Pom poms sitting right at his feet where Isak threw them when he came out, and Even whistled and told him to pick up his pen for him. 

“Stop staring at me!” the golden haired cheerleader groaned, crossing his arms. 

“Nice legs” Even just can’t help himself. 

“I mean it Eveeeeeeen” 

Even raised his hands in truce “Okay okay i’m done. would you like to explain why you are all dressed up for the big game Mr. spirit.” 

Isak shoot him daggers. 

“Last one I promise.” 

Isak rolled his eyes but a smile was hinting at his lips, as always when he was around Even. “Okay so…well…Jonas bet me that I couldn’t go a whole day at school without mentioning your name once..and-” 

Even grinned so wide he turned into one of those clowns you throw balls in at the fair. “Awwww you lost? looks like someone is obsessed with meee” 

Isak shook his head, his cheeks turning bright pink “shuuuuut up they tricked me! They asked me what I was doing after school when they knew I was hanging out with you.” 

Even nodded understandingly “So how did long did it take you to lose?”

He bowed his golden head in shame “5 minutes.” 

Even was gone again. laughing to the brink where he couldn’t even breathe “FIVE MINUTES” 

“You suck” 

“Hey come here.” Even tugged on his skirt and brought him close enough for Even to breathe him in. 

“So they made you wear this to the party tonight?” 

Isak tugged on the skirt “Yes! and I swear they made this shorter so I get blue balls or something.” 

Even smiled “You do know that’s not what blue balls means right?” 

Isak rolled his eyes. “I know Even I meant. There is no way i’m attractive in this, you can basically see my ass!” 

Even shook his head, his laughter consuming the room. “Firstly, The skirt is supposed to be this short.” he squeezed Isak’s hips, sending shivers up his spine. “secondly, dear god Isak you are hot.” 

Isak raised an eyebrow. 

“You are so sexy it’s taking all of my restraint and willpower not to take this really short marvellous costume off right now and showing you just how beautiful you really are.” 

Isak shook his head, his face bright red. “shuut up” 

Even raised both eyebrows “I am serious. Isak look at yourself! I can see every inch of your legs, and your arms and -” Even gulped “Okay we need to make it a rule that you wear skirts and dresses more often. it’s like the second best thing to naked Isak.” 

Isak laughed “You are such a weirdo, you know that right?” 

Even pulled Isak onto his lap and kissed him “Yeah but i’m your weirdo” he said against his lips. 

and then he was pushing Isak off and standing up. 

“What are you doing?” Isak asked, confused. 

Even shrugged. “I’m gonna see if Noora has any dresses I can borrow. You didn’t seriously think I would let you have all the fun did you?” 

Isak smiled as he watched him walk away. Because he knew Even was really doing it to make Isak feel safe and less self conscious and right then all he could think, was that he never imagined ever being this loved in his whole life. 

Even came back out. “So Noora had nothing, but Eskild did.” 

Isak laughed “of course.” 

“We are gonna be the hottest people at this thing.” 

“For sure” Isak said gazing at his beautiful boyfriend and the tiny sparkly dress he was holding which will definitely be way too short for giraffe Even. 

“I’m suddenly looking forward to this party now.” 

Even raised his eyebrows and kissed his lips. “Good.” 

Okay this was so silly but I hope you enjoyed it <3 

EXO reacting to you being short

Suho:He would like that you were short as he is not tall himself. It makes him feel more manlier that you only reach his shoulder,he would love to cuddle you and find it cute that you only reach his chin;even on your tiptoes.

Kris:The height difference would be adorable!He’d love when you wear his t-shirts and they look like dresses.Being shorter would make him feel a lot more manly as you are so cute and little he would feel protective.

Xiumin: Like Suho Xiumin is not tall either so he would like that you are around the same height(maybe a little smaller) but he would not like if you wear massive heels because suddenly he comes up to your shoulder.

Kai:Would love your shortness because then he could tease you!He would always joke around about his short you are and that he could lose you in the crowd. He does love how short you are though and would love when you wear heels as it transformed you from cute to sexy.

Sehun: Loves that he can help you around the house because your short,it would make him feel so manly when you can’t reach something and he can get it for you. He would love that you are shorter than him because he thinks it makes you look cute and dainty.

Baekhyun:I feel like baekhyun would not take too much notice of your height,being short himself he would not think about how short you are.

Chanyeol:This giraffe would love that you only come up to his chest,having to reach things for you,leaning down for kisses,he would find it adorable!

D.O:Again,like Baekhyun because he’s so short he would not notice how short you are but would like that you are shorter than him as it makes him less insecure than dating a woman who is a lot more taller than him.

Chen:He would make fun of how short you are even though he’s not exactly tall.He’s love cuddling,and you wearing his clothes because his jumpers go to your mid-thigh and make you look adorable.

Lay:Would not mind what height you are. Someone would genuinely have to point it out for him to even notice that you are below average in height,but he still wouldn’t care,he would just find it cute when you couldn’t reach the top shelf.

I couldn’t think of anything for Tao and Luhan sorry(🎶sorry sorry sorry🎶) requests are open!

Miserable Lester, Intermission: Bullet Point Extreme Cliff Notes Explanation Of This Particular Revolution As Far As Your Recapper Currently Understands It:
  • the characters in this novel are of course made up, but there really was an unsuccessful revolution in Paris, June of 1832, spearheaded by workingmen and university students. that’s an actual thing that happened, not some sort of composite event or historical “what if”.
  • Victor Hugo was actually there, I think? but on the pro-status-quo side of the fighting? post mid-life Dramatic Change In Political Opinions, I’m sure that haunted him, and I’m sure knowing more about the author’s personal history would provide a super illuminating lens through which to interpret parts of this novel. However, as per my reading rules (and esp. bc I don’t have nearly as much free time or Lack Of Better Shit To Do as I did when I started this liveblog last year), I’m not…really going to address or explore that idea right now. I’m just going to go with What’s In The Text I Have Before Me, as written by VHugz and as translated by… ::checks title page again::…Lee Fahnestock and Norman MacAfee. cool? cool
  • so anyway, right, as previously mentioned there’s been some political unrest fomenting for a while, ever since that whole shockingly bloodless 1830 transfer of power thing happened, disappointed a lot of people i guess, whatever. I mean, things were building before that, too. The point is, the event that finally kickstarts the 1832 revolution in Paris is the death of this guy General Lamarque.
  • For all I know it’s not even pronounced the same— who can say when it comes to the French language?— but all I could think of reading this bit was ancestral giraffes with short necks straining and stretching to reach higher-up leaves, gradually lengthening their throats by bits and then having children with longer and longer necks across the generations, which would of course be like if I gave birth to a daughter with tattoos and partially bleached hair. Utterly bogus stuff. And very distracting to have constantly on your mind when you’re trying to read about battles or whatever. Giraffes and fishes. Well, I suppose evolution, rightly or wrongly explained, is a kind of battle for survival, isn’t it? One we’ll all lose in the end, probably.
  • Okay right so this General Lamarque person, according to old VHugz? SUPER fucking popular with the populace. Massive in acclaim among the masses. He served Napoleon and all, plus also did some important-ass peacetime politicking. Hugo writes that he was, in his views and policies, “somewhere between the left and the extreme left” which I find phenomenally funny for god knows what reason. Perhaps just the idea of any political figure who could be described that way being widely liked, even among those on “the left” alone, is absurd to someone living in the 21st century U.S.A. Maybe the phrase “extreme left” just makes me think about anarcho-syndicalist skateboarders.
  • General Lamarque dies, and people use his funeral as an excuse for REVOLUTION (exactly as the current government feared they would); the funeral procession turns into fighting in the streets and there are people smashing windows and barricades and the army coming in to do a massacre and all, and you know who doesn’t really like to read about fighting or battles or political upheaval or any of that? This bitch
  • I mean, another problem is that I have a lot of difficultly picturing some of what’s being described since I am utterly unfamiliar with the layout of Paris, apart from seeing some crazy LSD spiderwebs, or possibly cocaine spiderwebs, I forget, that allegedly resembled a Parisian street map this one time.
  • Also, I still can’t stop thinking about the giraffes and the skateboarders
  • That said, I appreciate that Hugo’s making an attempt here to sketch an historical event as it was in reality (I assume, more or less) BEFORE returning the focus to a dramatization of that event as experienced by a bunch of entirely made-up imaginary people. Historical and political fiction, when it’s good, tries and succeeds to get the audience to care about the history and politics outside of the fiction and the characters and the characters’ personal struggles/emotional dramas therein. (I am, as I’ve said before, honestly a terrible audience for most historical and political fiction, but I can dig the effort and the craft of it.)
  • Some guy is chopping down dead tree parts outside my house and I keep having to pretend I’m not home when he knocks on the door to talk to me about the tree parts or whatever because it’s ass-o-clock in the morning and I’ll be fucked if I have to put on a shirt this early before work. This has helped me pass some time crouched beneath window-level; thanks for reading, folks, and adios  :)))))
