Strawberries (Damian Wayne x Reader) *Collab with Colormemeow*
A/N: Here’s the fic me and @colormemeow wrote together in celebration of our 300 milestone!
You had woken up that morning, unenthusiastically expecting an empty apartment. It had been unbearably boring ever since Batman had temporarily grounded you from patrol. But instead of the usual empty house, you found Damian, flopped unceremoniously onto your couch, looking like he’d been hit by, well, a Batmobile.
“Um… Hello?” you greeted and walked over to the sofa, kneeling so that you could make eye contact with him.
“Good morning,” he replied, acting as if nothing was out of the ordinary.
This had happened before, so the shock factor had worn off slightly.
“You, my friend, are getting blood all over my couch,” you pointed out.
‘It’s not my blood,” he tried to reassure you.
“That’s not any better! Now, why don’t we get you out of that uniform?“
“Beloved, are you attempting to flirt with me?” Damian responded, smirking.
“If you think that this is flirting, you’re out of your damn mind. I’m saying that you smell bad and I want you to shower, so get off of my couch,” you said, quickly pecking him on the nose.
He huffed in annoyance before rolling off the couch and making his way to your bathroom.
“Your shampoo is in there!” you called from the linen closet, where you were trying to see if Damian had left any clothes at your house.
Damian stood in the shower, looking at your bottles of soap. On the shower shelf, there was a wide array of soaps, including the shampoo you had gotten for him when he stayed over. However, a different bottle caught his eye.
Damian walked out into your bedroom, to find the clothes you had laid out, for him. He raised an eyebrow at the choice, but chose not to complain. A few minutes later he walked out of your room wearing grey sweats and an undersized black t-shirt. Damian noticed a pink sweatshirt sitting on a chair. He stopped to consider his dignity before putting on the sweatshirt. It fit and was fairly warm, so he didn’t mind the color.
You were lying on your sofa, snacking on a bowl of strawberries that you had gotten for yourself while waiting for Damian to get out of the shower. There was a loud thumping sound, followed by a string of curses.
“Don’t you dare die on me!” you shouted from the couch, trying to make sure Damian didn’t kill himself in your shower.
About ten minutes later, you were met with Damian, draping himself gracelessly over you, Damian’s damp hair was pressed into the crook of your neck. “Hello,” you greeted for the second time that morning. Before Damian could reply, you spoke again. “Did you use my shampoo?”
“It smelled like strawberries, I couldn’t help it, beloved,” he said into your neck, tangling his legs with yours.
“Smells nice on you. And is that my hoodie?” You moved one hand to run your fingers through his hair.
“Pink’s a good color on you,” you remarked sarcastically.
Damian hummed in response, and shifted so that he could kiss you, with his arms on either side of your head. He gave you several short pecks on the lips. “Marry me,” he mumbled, his face hovering over yours.
“I’m not that insane,” you replied, smirking and moving your head up to give him another kiss.
“I’m serious,” he responded, but his phone started to ring. He moved one arm to pull it out of the pocket of his sweats. “It’s my father, beloved. I probably have to go,” he sighed.
“No,” you whined, wrapping your arms around his neck. “Stay.”
“Beloved, I-” he stopped when he saw your pout. “Fine,” he muttered. “But what if it’s serious?”
“Promise me you’ll stay,” you begged, kissing him once again.
“Beloved, it is getting increasingly difficult to say no to you,” Damian said, furrowing his brow.
“I can make it worth your while,” you giggled, popping a strawberry into your mouth.
“You’re too good for this world, beloved,” he chuckled, then pressed his lips onto yours in a heated kiss.
His arms returned to either side of your head as the kiss grew more passionate. Your hands were on his chest, and the kiss broke for him to hastily pull off the pink sweatshirt and t-shirt.
Your position changed slightly, and now Damian’s knees were on either side of your hips, and he had your arms pinned above your head.
His lips were rough against yours and he kissed you fiercely.
You and Damian were both too preoccupied to hear the soft thunk coming from your fireplace.
It wasn’t until Bruce loudly cleared his throat that you both turned to look. There he was, in the full Batman suit.
Damian jerked off of the couch, landing on the floor. You heard a string of arabic cursing before he collected himself. “H-hello, father!” he exclaimed, looking absolutely mortified, his face almost as pink as the sweatshirt he’d been wearing. “It’s a bit early for you to be out, isn’t it?” Damian tried, attempting to avoid Bruce’s interrogation.
“Damian, would you like to explain to me why you elected not to report back to the cave after patrol last night?” Bruce questioned, crossing his arms over his chest. “And explain to me what this is,” he continued, gesturing to the two of you in your disheveled state.
You were practically petrified. Having your adoptive father-figure walk in on you and his son making out was not a comfortable situation.
“Father I am nineteen. I might remind you that I’m an adult,” Damian argued.
Bruce sighed, looking as if he was making a decision. “Fine,” he grumbled. “I’m too young to be having grandchildren,” he muttered to himself, making your face go bright red. In another instant, he was gone.
“I should probably go, beloved,” Damian reasoned, getting up and starting to change into his uniform.
“Yeah, I guess,” you admitted, sighing in defeat and standing up.
“I’ll be back later tonight after patrol,” he told you, walking over and taking your hands in his.
“Just do one last thing and kiss me,” you replied, smiling gently.
He nodded and kissed you softly. “Just so you know, beloved, I was serious about marrying you.”
And before you knew it he was out your window and off to save the world.
hey everyone, so this is the Epilogue to my Reggie Mantle mini fic, Tutor Me? I’d just like to make it clear that this is going to be the final part of the fic! But if anyone has any Reggie reqs, hit me up in my ask.
SUMMARY: Reggie and (Y/N) take that well-needed shower.

• Tate would be nervous the first time, because he wouldn’t be sure what to do.
• You would guide him in what he should do, and he silently appreciated it.
• It would be vanilla the first few times, and pretty silent.
• But as you two got used to each other’s bodies, and figured out what the other liked, things could get slightly intense.
• Tate liked to take you from behind, and pull on your hair.
• But he mostly stuck to missionary because he liked making eye contact.
• He didn’t seem to have a preference as far as your boobs and ass go.
• Tate would always stop pulling your hair, scratching, or his intense grasps on your waist whenever you seemed uncomfortable.
• Even though you didn’t mind at all.
• Tate was almost always dominant, unless you seemed interested in the role at the time.
• Afterwards he would always be up for naked cuddling.
• A. Lot. Of. Cuddling.
• Did I mention cuddling?
There probably won’t be too much of a change here, I just feel like post death tate would be more aggressive?
• Tate was very experienced the first time, and it was amazing for the both of you.
• He slowly introduced you to his kinks, light BDSM and a slight daddy kink.
• He would call you degrading names during sex, such as cumslut, whore, you get the idea.
• He was always the dom, and you didn’t object.
• His moans were always super loud, but you would never dare to tell him to quiet down.
• He usually wouldn’t let you talk during, if you did you would be punished with spanks.
• You had lots of angry sex, which was particularly aggressive.
• Having shower sex and knocking bottles off the ledges.
• After sex he would usually give you a small kiss and take a shower.
Idk I felt weird writing the last parts. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to write actually smut, lol. I’ll try. Thanks for reading, again send in some requests!!
What about their reaction to finding a vibrator in y/n’s room? XD
I’d like to teach you about the lord and savior Beyonce Knowles. - Admin Dayna
Forgive him father for he has sinned. He was only looking for a pair of socks. If he had been actually paying attention to which drawer he was opening, he wouldn’t have been in this predicament. Jin was old and mature enough for things like this to not bother him so much, but it was just… it was so unexpected. And it was you. I mean, people had their needs, but… it was… right there. Jin stared at your vibrator for a moment, his brain blank, body frozen. He just stood and stared. Motionless. Speechless. Then finally came to his senses, a shiver running down his spine as he slammed the drawer shut.
This one was inspired by a lovely piece of art by the AMAZING @dancingwdinosaurs (: Please go look at their beautiful work!
And shoutout to @baz-n-simon for being the most amazing beta and support!
The cruel irony about dating Simon Snow is that I’m a vampire dating the sun. And like the sun, Simon is up far too early for my liking. Or anyone else’s, for that matter.
“Simon,” comes a muffled voice from the other side of the far wall, along with a pounding. Bunce. “You’re being too loud. I’m trying to sleep!”
I pull the covers over my face and try to ignore the pounding.
“Sorry, Penny!” Simon says, too loudly, from somewhere in the room. But he seems to be digging through his wardrobe and continues slamming the drawers.
I groan. Unlike the sun, I can’t just close a curtain on Snow and hope to be able to fall back asleep. Once he’s up, so am I. So I roll over and peek my head out of the blanket, but he’s not in the room.
“Snow?” I pull the covers off and slowly sit on the edge of the bed.
A bottle clanks against the floor in the bathroom and rolls out into the bedroom. There’s more pounding from Bunce’s room, and I pinch the bridge of my nose. A moment later though, Snow walks out to pick up the bottle. Crowley.
“Oh, Baz,” he says, and he’s just standing there in his boxers, freshly showered, and holding the bottle against his chest. The sun is coming in through the bathroom window, creating a halo-like shadow on his hair, and his skin is glowing. He looks…
“Did I wake you up?”
…Angelic. At Watford, in the few times Snow would walk out of the bathroom looking like this, I only could glance once or twice, then pretend not to notice. But now I can’t take my eyes off of him. And I don’t have to.
“It was just the sun, Snow,” I say, and he smiles at me. Crowley.
“I will get some better curtains,” he says and walks back into the bathroom.
I don’t need any curtains.
I stand up and walk towards the bathroom. Snow’s brushing his teeth, and I smile at him through the mirror. Sometimes Snow likes to pretend he can’t see me in the mirror, for the sake of his cheesy vampire jokes, but he smiles back at me this time, his mouth full of toothpaste.
I step up behind him and wrap my hand around his waist, putting my face into his hair. He smells like cinnamon and citrus. He puts his hand over mine, and I kiss his curls.
“Good morning, love,” I say.
He smiles at me with his toothbrush still in his mouth. “G’ah mornin’.”
Tampon help? I'm new to tampons and periods in general!
A Beginner’s Guide to Periods
The most important thing to remember is that everybody’s body is different. Don’t be alarmed if your first few periods aren’t what you thought they would be, just go with the flow and give your body what it needs.
Duration: Periods vary greatly in length. Normally they last about a week, but I once met a woman whose period was only 4 days! Mine is 8 days.
Occurrence: Periods are monthly events for most people, and will typically happen during the same timeframe each month. If you have your period on the 14th of this April, odds are that you will have it again around the 14th of May, and so on.
Irregular periods: Some women do not experience a monthly period, or even a bi-monthly period. My period came every two months before I started birth control, which is not ideal. If you have an irregular period you may want to talk to your doctor about regulating it with birth control.
Colors: You will notice a myriad of different colors during your period! Darker blood (almost brown colored) is older uteral lining that was shed several hours previously, while redder blood is freshly shed. You will probably start your period with brown blood, move through your heaviest days with red, and end again on brown.
Flow: Flow is what we ladies call the rate at which we bleed during our periods. You will need to use different types of pads/tampons to help accommodate the flow changes throughout your period (see tampons/pads/cups).
Females typically start and end their periods with very light flow and/or spotting.
Every single female I have ever spoken to has told me that her period is heaviest during its second day. I can’t state that this is a scientific fact, but expect that this will be the case for you.
Many women experience “false ends” during the last day or two of their periods. You may experience a large amount of time with no bleeding (I actually go an entire day), and may think that your period has ended and that it’s safe to wear nice panties again. WRONG. Your period will return!
Spotting: Spotting is any light vaginal bleeding which occurs at any time other than when a period is due. There are so many reasons why it may happen, most of them hormone related. If you are spotting on a regular basis, call your OBGYN.
Cramps: Cramps are typically experienced in the early stages of your period. You can get them before your period starts (a harbinger of times to come) or even during the first few days of your period. They vary from imperceptible to cripplingly painful. You can’t really do much to temper them, so this is a time for you to focus on yourself being comfortable (see below).
Pregnancy: No you cannot get pregnant while on your period!
Sex: Yes you can absolutely have sex on your period, and I recommend that you do. Vaginas are at their most stimulated and sensitive during menstruation (not to mention lubed up and ready to go) and period sex is AMAZING. That said, always talk to your significant other about what they’re comfortable with, and remember to use a towel!
There are so many options when it comes to caring for yourself while on your period! Try out different brands and types of feminine hygiene products to find what works best for you.
Pads are the perfect product for a period beginner, or else someone who is uneasy touching “down there”.
They vary in thickness and size, and Always is my favorite brand. You’ll want to use thicker pads for your heavy flow days, lighter pads for your lighter days. The product bag will tell you how many hours each pad is good for, and they’re very accurate representations of when you will need to change your pad.
It’s a good idea to buy at least two different thicknesses of pads so that you’ll be able to transition through your period with ease.
You do not need to remove your pad whenever you use the restroom.
Pads do not expire, and how many you use depends on what your body needs. If you don’t use an entire pack, save the rest for next month!
Tampons are my go-to feminine hygiene product! I prefer them to pads because pads make me feel like I have two tons of cotton stuffed down my undies. Tampons are virtually undetectable when used properly, I sometimes forget I have them in!
You may choose to use a light pad in addition to a tampon. This ensures that the tampon is placed properly and that nothing leaks out.
Like pads, tampons vary in thickness. As they get thicker they get bigger in length. Light tampons are very small, while heavy tampons can be as long and thick as your ring finger. Tampax sells an assortment of tampons that is ideal for transitioning through your flow patterns.
I typically go through about half a box of tampons per period.
In my experience, store brand tampons are less comfortable than name brand ones like Tampax. Do what works for you!
You do not need to remove tampons when using the restroom, but some women opt to. If you choose not to remove your tampon, make sure that the tampon’s string is tucked out of the way when you do your business. I like to hold the string aloft while I pee, to ensure that it doesn’t get wet.
How to use tampons. This video is a little silly, but does a good job at thoroughly explaining inserting tampons.
NEVER BUY SCENTED TAMPONS.
I have personally never used cups, but I didn’t want to leave them out because they’re becoming increasingly popular.
Unlike tampons and pads that have to be discarded after being used, cups can be washed and reused for many years.
This makes them environmentally friendly and 100% cost efficient, because you don’t have to keep going out and buying more every other month. Note that cups will cost significantly more than tampons or pads for this very reason.
The rumors are true! Cramps are painful, frustrating, and tiring to deal with. Your ovaries take turns releasing eggs, so you will notice that your cramps will alternate on left and right sides of your body. One side always hurts more than the other!
I highly recommend taking some time off when your cramps first hit. I understand that we all have busy lives and cannot just opt out of obligations. In that case, you absolutely need to tell your female coworkers or fellow students what is going on.
Take aspirin. Cramps don’t all come at once, so make sure to take an aspirin ASAP after experiencing your first wave. You’re not called on to deal with that much pain without light medication.
Hot water. This can be in the form of a shower, hot water bottle, even a bath if you can stand it. This helps relax your muscles and therefore relieves the cramps. Btw, women don’t bleed while in water, for whatever weird reason. Take a shower and see what I mean.
Chocolate: Get those endorphins flowing! I find that I crave fatty, salty, and sugary foods during my period, and I allow myself to follow those cravings.
Tea: Brew yourself a cup of your favorite herbal tea to help relieve some of those cramps. Coffee not so much.
Back rub: Ask your significant other (or a good friend) for a back rub to help relieve pain. Have them focus on the lower part of your back, taking special care to massage around your abdominal area.
R&R: Lay on your couch or bed and watch some Netflix. Or else, do something that doesn’t require a lot of cognitive thought. Let your body relax while not doing any physical exertion.
Sleep: If all else fails and you’re feeling miserable, allow yourself a two hour nap.
Birth control: If you have severe/crippling cramps please please please talk to your OBGYN about birth control. Birth control can help reduce the painfulness and length of your menstrual cramps.
I’d like to take you back to around 6.45am this morning, when I stepped into my bath, and found that my usual, rather innocuous bottle of shower gel (Waitrose essentials, Rose) had run out. A tad irritating, but fortuitously, I had a solution close to hand. A brand new, unopened bottle of your very own Mint and Tea Tree Shower Gel. My bodily cleanliness was assured once more. I breathed a sigh of relief.
I took the Mint and Tea Tree Shower Gel and began to work it into a lather. I applied it to first one leg, then the other, and shaved them diligently. (Yes, feel free to be impressed at my commitment to body defoliation at 6.45am on a Wednesday morning. I was too.) So far, so good.
I washed my arms and shaved underneath them. I washed my neck, breasts, stomach and back. Thus far, it had been a positively first class bathing experience.
Oh. Dear. God.
MY VAGINA WAS ABLAZE.
For a moment, I wasn’t entirely sure what had happened. Had I repeated the never to be forgotten error when I managed to apply hair removal cream which was strictly not for front bottoms to my front bottom? Had a stray spark inadvertently set light to my pubic thatch?
BECAUSE IT FUCKING FELT LIKE IT.
Yes, Original Source, your innocuous looking green bottle of so called shower gel, it turns out, is an absolute fucking liability. MY FLAPS WERE ON FUCKING FIRE. I had a quick look at the ingredients list to see if it contained gasoline. It did not. There was a warning though. ‘KEEP AWAY FROM EYES.’ Keep away from eyes? KEEP AWAY FROM EYES? Frankly, my eyes were the least of my problems right now.
I frantically scrubbed my flaps, which by now felt as though they were being ceremoniously scrubbed by ants wearing ice skates laced with chilli sauce. ‘7,929 tingling leaves’ claimed the front of the bottle. Tingling? TINGLING? This wasn’t tingling my minge. It was starting a fucking bush fire down there. (Pun entirely intended. You can thank me later.)
Some twelve hours later, my front bottom has finally calmed down, though may well be suffering from as yet unconfirmed PTSD. My eyes have eventually stopped watering. And so, in the interests of public safety, I thought I would pen you this missive.
May I suggest a rebranding of the front of your bottles of Mint and Tea Tree Shower Gel? Something along the lines of the following:
‘7,927 tingling leaves which will accost your genitalia until it screams for mercy.’
If nothing else, it will certainly stand out on the shelf.
Anyways, thanks for brightening up my morning. And my front bottom, which has never been so lively.
Simple recipe for a shower gel you can use to cleanse and protect your self.
I used the ground dried herbs but fresh herbs will work just as well! (just make sure you cut them quite finely)
You will need: - A bottle/container
- A clear liquid soap or shower gel (preferably scented, unless you’re okay with smelling like herbs)
- Three pinches of sea salt
- Bay Leaf
Putting it together:
Put the soap/shower gel into the bottle then add in the herbs in that order. Shake well, till it gets foamy.
You can add as much of each herb as you want so you can adjust according to how much you are making.
How to use:
When using make sure you wash from head to toe. This will make sure you are washing away all the negative things. While washing your body with it, imagine you are washing away all the negative gunk away, keeping all your good energies in. Do the following chant to charge it :
My skin is iron. My blood is steel. The bad washes away and the good is sealed in. Nothing can pass through me now. Nothing can harm me.
If you can then air drying is great, please do not dry your self off with a towel as that can wipe away the spell and break it. However, if you’re like me and like to actually dry off quickly after a shower/bath since it’s cold in the house you can pat yourself dry gently.
How would the bros react to finding out their new love interest is living out of their car/homeless and struggles to find food but hides it from everyone?
Mm, this one was a little difficult, but I think I figured it out…*Fingers crossed*
You stood in a rather stunning apartment, turning as you looked to the owner of said apartment removing his shoes, before raising a questioning eyebrow to you.
“Uh, make yourself at home.” Noctis stated.
You opened your mouth to reply, “I don’t mean to sound ungrateful but you don’t have to do this Noctis.”
Noctis glanced over his shoulder, before moving to the couch collapsing on it, “I know, but I want to.”
You fidget with the large overused duffle bag, holding every last piece of item you had left in the world.
Somehow the Prince had gotten wind of your currently living situation, it was kind of difficult to explain, your parents were supporting your housing situation, yet when you got a ‘B’ on a final they stopped supporting you and you were immediately evicted from your apartment. Fortunately your Grandparents had purchased your car, so you had been living in the backseat, living off of To-go soup cans and the veggies that Noctis often picked off his food.
Yet the moment Noctis found you, going back to your car after an evening out with your friends, he immediately, jumped into the passenger seat and demanded you take him home. Only to trick you at the door, demanding you come up. Stating there was plenty of room, and Ignis wouldn’t mind cooking for you as well.
“If you’d like a shower, it’s down the way to the left. When’s the last time you ate?” Noctis asked, tapping away at his phone.
“Uh, about 2 days ago.” You thought, it might have been longer, since you were actually much shorter on money.
“I’ll order some take out.” He stated.
You smiled weakly, “Thank you.” You were lucky to make it to the bathroom before you broke down crying.
“Hey, y/n!” Prompto cheered, on his morning jog through the park.
You looked up from your everyday perch as you watched the blonde, “Morning!” You called back, you always marked his half way point. Only noticing that he was holding a white back, which meant the sunshine, had washed your clothes, and brought you something to eat. “Thanks.”
You had only been living out your car for a few weeks, and if you played your cards right you would hopefully be moving into an apartment by the end of the month. It wasn’t in the safest part of town, but it would at least allow you a warm place to stay.
“So when are you getting the bigger place?” Prompto asked, as he handed you the bag.
“Hopefully by the end of the month.” You beam, “Thanks again for all the help Prompto.”
“But it is, to tell you truthfully, I was worried I’d have to move back in with my Dad, but thanks to your kindness, this has been a lot easier. I mean you let me crash at your place anytime you can , and you keep feeding me. You’re amazing, I could never repay you!”
Prompto chuckled, as he scratched the back of his head, “Well there is one thing.”
Prompto’s blue eyes glanced toward you, than away, “Instead of that place, would you mind moving in with me? It’s a huge apartment and just me, so it would just be safer in numbers.”
You seriously wanted to cry, “Prompto.”
“We can move in next week, but there’s one thing before that.”
“Yeah?” You asked, unsure of what other strings were attached to this deal.
“You have to let me take you out for dinner, sometime.”
You couldn’t stop the bright smile over your face. “I’d be honored!”
You jumped as you heard something brush against your tent, you hoped it was a racoon! It had better be a racoon! You thought, hand going to your hunting knife.
It was just one thing after another, Week one your parents kicked you, then week two your lost job due to downsizing. Now you spent all your time trying to find a job and not starve to death while doing so. Lucky you still had your gym membership so that you could take a shower, refill your water bottle, and charge your phone and emergency backup battery.
Now week three and you were about to protect what little you had left from a raccoon! Well you had a lot of rage from the last couple of weeks so bring it on!
“Y/n, are you in there?”
You put down your knife, “Gladiolus?” Stumbling from your one person tent you, stared at the large man standing before the opening. “What are you doing out here?”
“I could ask you the same thing.”
You glanced around, you were camped up in one of the larger camping areas on the outskirts of the city. “Camping?”
“For 2 weeks?”
“You been stalking me?” You gasped accusatorily.
Gladiolus rose an eyebrow, before kneeling before your tent opening, “Y/n, come out.”
You groaned, before disappearing back into your tent, pulling on a hoodie to cover your tank top. Before crawling out the tent, checking your phone to see that it was about 10 at night. Standing full height as you looked to the man, who was still staring you down.
“So…” You begun.
“So start packing this stuff up.”
Gladiolus motioned toward the large SUV behind him, “You’re staying with me.”
“I’m sorry, what?”
Gladiolus groaned, running a large hand through his hair, “I can’t have you out here, just stay with me until you get back on your feet.”
You made to retort, only to glance at your small tent, it was old and patched up, letting out a sigh, as you turned back to the large guy. “Give me a second to pack a bag.”
Within half an hour your old home was tossed into the back of Gladiolus’ truck, and you sat in the large front seat, holding your backpack, to your chest. The two of you riding in silence, as he drove you to his large home.
A large hand found your head, as the man chuckled, “No problem.”
You paused your morning routine of cleaning the breakfast dishes, you had been living with Ignis for about 2 months now, prior you had been couch surfing on friends couches. As it turns out an internship at the castle, and working part time at a cafe, didn’t allow for you to afford a full meal, let alone a place to live.
The truth came out, one evening while working at the castle, you had delivered some papers to Ignis, only to faint on the man’s floor after not eating a full meal in about four days. The man had allowed for you to rest on his couch, and even let you use his suit jacket as a blanket.
When you came to, the man had provide you with a hefty lunch, and feeling guilty about scarfing down his food, you explained your situation. The man opened his home to you right away, stating that you could stay with him until you saved up enough money to get your own apartment.
You offered to not to stay just for free, so you often cleaned up the house on your day off, or when going in late to the part time job. You two often arrived together to the castle most mornings, which of course got rumors going.
Yet Ignis never once provided the actual nature of your relationship.
As the two of you fell into your routine, you found it very difficult to find yourself the will to move out and by the way you found the the apartment listing brochures in the recycle bin, Ignis also felt the same way.
A smile played on your mouth, as you picked up your grocery basket, Ignis left a list on the table this morning of a new recipe that he would like to try out. It would be an exciting evening,
A/N: Hey guys! So again this will be both before and present time, but the majority of the chapter is what the reader’s life was like before. I wanted to give you guys an insight to where the readers life was going before the apocalypse and why she acts/feels the way she does towards Negan and Simon. I ended on a cliff hanger- of course and the flashback may seem a little confusing. But don’t worry I will definitely explain the meaning in the next part. As always, feel free to send in feedback. OH! And as promised, there is smut - you have been warned.
[As always, gifs are not mine. All credit goes to original owners.]
Word Count: 4,878
Warnings: SMUT, death, (spoilers?) S7 ep 01 storyline, cursing-it involves Negan for fucks sake
Negan stares down at me with a glimmer in his eye. “Well shit. I never even expected you to make it out of that town you called home after the world went to shit. Seeing you here, with these people though. Matter of fact, what are you doing with these people? How the hell did you end up with shitty people like these folks here.” I can’t bring myself to answer him though, all I can feel is fear about what is going to happen next. I look over to the right of him, where Simon is and he’s still staring at me like I’m a fucking ghost. I don’t know what I expect at this moment but I wasn’t expecting him to just stand there.
Hello teenies! Here we are to tell you how to cleanse your items - this is great for anything at all, it works for any objects and even works for your own body!
What is cleansing?
Cleansing is a way to remove any negative or unwanted energies from your possessions, a place or yourself. It’s a way to make sure that you aren’t getting negative energies from the things around you! This is a very important part of being a witch because all of your things will absorb negative or strange unwanted energies sometimes!
How do we cleanse things?
There are so many ways to cleanse things! So here’s loads of nice ways to do it!
Using crystals! Selenite and Kyanite never needs to be cleansed themselves (unless you want to be super sure then you can do!) or you can use clear quartz, tourmaline or obsidian, but these will need cleansing using other methods. Just place them near or on top of the item(s) you’re cleansing and they’ll absorb the negative energy!
Smoke cleansing! You can either use incense or dried white sage to do this, but be careful because white sage may resemble the scent of cannabis, so if that’s an issue for any reason then use a nice scented incense instead! This method is nice and simple, you just light the incense or sage and either place it near an item or take it around a room/house to cleanse it. You can also use specific types of incense to replace negative energies with different energies that you want around you!
Salt! Make sure that an item can have contact with salt, if not then you can place the item inside a bag or pouch to keep it protected, or you can keep the salt in a pouch or jar instead. Bury your item(s) in the salt for up to 3 days OR you can place a pouch or jar of salt near an item instead
Bathing and showering! Yep, you can use basic things like this to cleanse yourself of negative energies. While you wash yourself you can imagine all of the negative energies being washed away. You can even choose washing products that have ingredients that are good to cleanse, Lush Cosmetics are so great for things with natural ingredients but many others will have natural ingredients in too that can give a boost of cleansing! You can also use salt based body scrubs :D
Running water! Make sure your item is safe to put in water, some crystals can’t be put in water and may erode, so check if it’s a crystal you’re cleansing. Find a stream or river, or even use a tap or shower if you want, and then place the item in the running water for as long as you like and the running water will carry away the negative energies!
Your own energy! If you’re feeling particularly positive one day, you can use your own energy to cleanse things by focusing very hard on pushing out the negative energies within an object and replacing them with positive energies. This can be very tiring though, so please be careful using this method so that you don’t drain yourself entirely. You can also borrow positive energy from plants, the earth, spirits or animals if you like, but make sure that you ask and also leave an offering for them as an exchange.
Sunlight! Some crystals or items may fade in colour or be damaged by the sun, so please be careful and have a look if it’s safe or not! All you need to do is simply place the item(s) in the sunlight (or on a windowsill where the sun comes in) and leave it for a few hours to cleanse.
Moonlight! This is much safer than the sunlight, as long as there’s a moon in the sky you can place your item(s) either outside or on the windowsill to bathe in the moonlight for a few hours, but make sure you put them away before the sun comes up (or before you go to sleep) unless they’re safe in the sunlight :)
Sweeping and cleaning! This doesn’t sound very magickal, but as you’re cleaning your space, you’re also cleansing the negativity from it. Imagine that your cleaning is taking away all the unwanted and negative energies!
Music! This is one of my favourite ways to cleanse, listen to some of your favourite music that makes you feel positive emotions. If you want then you can also sing and/or dance to increase all of the positive energy. This charges them at the same time!
Sigils! Find or design a sigil that is for cleansing, put it on or near the item you’re cleansing. You can draw sigils in shower gel on your body or draw one in bubble bath on the bottom of your bath tub to cleanse yourself. Or you can draw one in honey on the bottom of your tea or coffee too. Or draw one in oil when you cook your food!
Other cleansing ideas!
There’s spells and mixtures you can do in order to cleanse as well! Some of these go to links to Mod U’s witch blog and some go to other blogs, all of these links are safe for teenies, but the blogs may not be entirely safe, so please be careful if you venture out onto any of these blogs!
Stardust powder!This is a lovely pretty thing to have around and all you need to do is place an object on or near the powder to cleanse them, it also can charge things! Please be careful because not all crystals or objects will be safe to have direct contact with the powder because of the salt especially, so you can put the powder inside a jar or sachet, or you can lay some paper towel over the top of it to avoid direct contact!
