“I’m scared to go back to work. I just called out someone in front of a large group of people. I just wouldn’t let it go. I should have taken it offline, but I had to be right. I could have stepped back, watched the movie version of myself, and seen how my behavior was being seen by the people around me. But no— I just couldn’t let it go. My therapist would be so upset with me right now. I almost went home, but there was a woman taking a diarrhea shit on the train platform. So I think God, who I don’t even believe in, is telling me that I need to go back to the office and figure this out.”
I was browsing recently added on Netflix today and LOOK:
Movies info: “When her family goes bankrupt, privileged city girl Jen Stone travels to the country to try and help a struggling pumpkin farm that her father bought as an investment to get her money back. Not everyone is on board with her changes, least of all Brett, the farm’s handsome manager. By working with what she knows best, she just might be able to turn the farm around, while also falling in love.”
I MEAN, it seems a little your typical cliche romance movies, but ALSO city girl moves to a farm, turns it into a successful business and also finds love? And its called Harvest Moon? SEEMS A LITTLE FAMILIAR???
The Enterprise-D doesn’t have a Chief Science Officer. It’s a massive ship with exploratory purposes and there’s no Chief Science Officer. Even DS9 had a Science Officer, who was assigned before anyone even knew there were new scientific opportunities there. For a ship whose purpose is finding new scientific stuff, you would think there would be a Science Officer
Don’t settle, don’t lower your standards. Wait for the guy who truly loves you. Well, it’s engagement season. Recently I had a friend tell me in conversation, “What if I never find the perfect guy? I probably just need to lower my standards to get that ‘ring by spring’ like everyone else.”
I’ll be honest, I once thought the same thing… Will I ever find a guy with my, what seem to be, impossibly high, standards? I realized, though, yeah I should probably let go of the physical standards I have but there should be some things, us as girls should never settle on. We should wait it out, because even if it takes longer than expected, God has that perfect guy in store for you.
A Secret Santa gift for @jenswans. It was lovely getting to know you and you have been ridiculously patient with me! I hope this domestic modern AU with multiple meet-cutes exceeds expectations! You absolutely deserve it and much more!
The morning wind held a hint of spring as Emma yanked on the door to the coffee shop. She had been living in Boston for three months but had yet to find a regular coffee place. The place closest to her house was too pretentious, the one down the street had good coffee but was always crowded with college students, the one on the corner was decent but the blonde barista kept hitting on her. Emma didn’t think she was picky she just wanted a place that served simple, no frills, quality coffee, without ridiculous lines or having to endure awkward flirting.
Emma had high hopes that Cafe Hollow, despite its strange name, could be her place. It was painted in rich neutrals and littered with no-nonsense tables, the music was at a reasonable volume, the line was short, and the menu was a simple black signboard with white letters posted above the register offering simply coffee, espresso, Americano, and cappuccino and no option for sizes. Emma smiled–this was her kind of place.
“I don’t understand. You have milk, you have coffee why can’t you just make me a latte?” The raven haired woman at the front complained in an over-loud voice. Emma rolled her eyes. Why was it so hard to just order what was on the menu?
“This isn’t Starbucks.” Emma heard a male voice mutter lowly behind her and she nodded
“How can you even call yourself a cafe if you don’t serve latte’s?” The irate customer’s pitch rose.
“Seriously?” Emma murmured.
“Someone should tell her there are four other coffee shops on this block that would happily accept her patronage.” The voice added in a rich English accent. Emma gave a chuckle and glanced back to say hello to her fellow annoyed customer but stopped short.
He was a taller man with dark brown hair, a strong jaw covered in scruff, and a mouth quirked into a smirk that Emma found both endearing and dangerous. She gave him a small smile back as her heart did a strange leap and she turned back around to see the woman leaving in a huff. Emma pretended to be interested in the menu as she tried to center herself. It had been a long time since she had felt such an instant attraction–not since Neal– and the thought disturbed her, set all her personal alarms ringing. She ordered her coffee to-go and was striding out the door before the guy had a chance to try talking to her again.
Emma didn’t go back to Cafe Hollow. She told herself it was because their coffee was weak but deep down she knew it was because she didn’t want to run into “coffee guy” again. She knew it was ridiculous but after Neal, after being abandoned and betrayed, she just couldn’t trust herself or her gut when it came to men. Especially not drop-dead gorgeous men with accents and hair that looked softer than a puppy’s fur. She threw herself into her work that week taking on more skips than usual to make sure she was distracted.
That’s how she ended up at a bar called Neverland in a skin-tight red dress and heels that were killing her as she waited for her skip to show his face. She was busy watching the door when someone slid next to her.

Today, I fucked up... by taking a girl to a Holocaust museum for our first date
I’ll keep this brief since I’m having to type with my elbows while I’m double-facepalming.
I met this girl on Tinder, and after a few messages, we agreed to meet up in person. I’m horrible at thinking of fun things to do on a date, but I remembered reading on her profile that she likes museums. I asked if there were any museums that she wanted to go to, to which she said, “Let’s go to that Holocaust museum!” At the time, the blood wasn’t exactly in my brain, so I said, “Sure, sounds like fun!” I should have said “How about no? Let’s go to literally any other kind of museum.”
We arrived at the museum, and as I stood there looking at a massive pile of twisted glasses frames and discarded shoes worn by the prisoners, I realized that I have seriously fucked up. What started off as a damn good first date, quickly became a regretful experience. We didn’t talk, we didn’t hold hands or make any physical contact whatsoever; we just walked in somber silence.
I tried to lighten the mood, but once you’ve been brought down by the atrocities of the Holocaust, there’s really no cheering-up for a while. I dropped her off at her house without so much as a fist-bump, and drove myself home.
Ok so, I´ve been wanting to do a harrymort rec list since probably forever. As a Harrymort shipper, I´ve always had a lot of trouble finding long lists of recommendations -or fics at all. You feel me. And, even if at the beginning I was planing in making this a single post, the recent amount of new stories on AO3 about my OTP (Guys, thank you so much), made me decide to make this more of an interactive thing. So, I´ll keep editing this every time i find anything worth tagging.
And here we get to the tricky part. This is full of recommendations, but, in order to make this fair to new authors/not so well known authors, instead of making this a “you must read” list I´m making it an “everything i´ve ever favorited/followed in ff.net and everything I´ve bookmarked/marked for later on AO3″ kind of list. I personally thing everything here is worth your time, either WIP or complete or one-shot. BUT: lots of the WIPs are old, so they are unofficially descontinued. If you have read everything here, I´m sorry :( I´ll try to update it soon, fear not!
The favorites will have a *, and my personal favorites will have ** and probably fangirl comments, sorry about that. I´d also recommend checking out anything written by this authors.
What happened to you… it isn’t fair, but what you’re doing to her isn’t fair either. And if anyone should understand what that feels like it’s you. You have the power, you can do what you want to do, but for once you can chose to use that power to do for Ellie what should have been done for you. You can chose letting her go. You can chose teaching her that, yes, there are monsters, and it’s okay to be afraid of them. But it’s not okay to let them win, and it’s not okay to be one.
These are SIN fics that have been rec’d to me and are on my to-read list, some of them I have started reading, but I haven’t finished.
Just keep in mind, I have yet to read these completely, but being honest the kudos and comments on these fics speak for themselves. Feel free to rec me more fics if you haven’t seen them on either of my sin lists [Previous SIN Rec List]
…OR if you want to rec me non-SIN fics, please feel free to do so! save me from the sin [Regular MLB Fic Rec]
