Fic -- Lemon and Strawberry -- Nine/Rose

Summary: Lemon and strawberry, yellow and pink, they go together just like gelato and a hot summer’s day

A/N: shameless Nine/Rose fluff for my lovely friend the-untempered-prism who is as sweet as strawberries =) And please check out the absolutely lovely art that she drew to accompany this here!!

Betababes: the equally sweet as strawberries fadewithfury and whoinwhoville =)

The piazza is crowded.

And bloody hot.

Even the stucco buildings bake under the unrelenting scorch of the August sun, their façades parched from the arid Sicilian air and starting to flake off, more reminiscent of overcooked croissants than heavy paint. He and Rose are among the myriad souls out and about despite the oppressive heat—and he gets more than a few stares from shoppers out on their errands. He doesn’t pay them any mind, of course, instead rolling his eyes inwardly at the ape tendency to stare at things they don’t understand. He knows what they’re likely wondering—how on earth can he stand to be wearing a black leather jacket on a day like today?

The Whimsically Macabre Scenes of @__remmidemmi

To see more of Sandro’s explorations of “bodies with no regret,” follow @__remmidemmi on Instagram.

In his macabre, tragicomic photo series, Italian photographer Sandro Giordoan (@__remmidemmi) explores the willingness of people to put the safety of material objects before their own well-being.

When conceiving the project, _IN EXTREMIS (bodies with no regret), Sandro drew from personal experience. “Last summer I had a small but tough bicycle accident,” he explains. “I lost 30% of my right hand’s functions because I never let go of the object I was holding as I fell.”

When, shortly after, a friend broke his leg to prevent his smartphone from falling in water, Sandro became concerned. “We live in a time where we risk material things becoming more important than our own lives, and this is really worrying.”

Sandro channeled his concern into crafting meticulous and whimsical photos. “I immediately felt the urgency to capture the moment of impact. I wanted to talk about obsessions, neurosis and frailties of our times through my personal experience.” The resulting photos are at once humorous and haunting.

Many think that the wildly contorted bodies in Sandro’s photos are dolls or dummies. Not so, says Sandro. “I work exclusively with professional actors who are able to position themselves in anatomically impossible poses because they are trained to use their bodies to communicate.”

"Honestly Speaking", a Yowamushi Pedal fanfiction

Summary: The Sohoku team visits Imaizumi while he’s recovering from a surgery. They weren’t expecting the drugs to still be in effect.

Pairing: Imaizumi/Onoda

Notes: Ridiculous amount of OOC-ness on Imaizumi’s part because drugs.

Inspired by this adorable video and also because the image of a loony Imaizumi makes me laugh really hard.

When Your Doggo 🐶 Goes For A Walk 🚶 🚶 ☀
  • Doggo: *relaxes on the couch, flipping through channels by pawing the remote* THE PROGRAMS ON THIS MOVING IMAGE BOX ARE ALL INSUFFERABLY INANE. I HOPE MY HUMANS RETURN HOME SOON. I DO NOT THINK I CAN TAKE MUCH MORE OF THIS BANALITY.
  • Doggo: *flips to the local news*
  • Newscaster: Reports of a man in a cartoon wolf suit harassing and attacking random people have increased in the last week. Two men in the lower east side of the city claim to have been attacked by the man and they're saying that this wolf is nothing to bark at.
  • *cuts to an interview*
  • Drunk Man 1: You recording?
  • Someone Off Camera: Yeah, it's rolling.
  • Drunk Man 1: Oh shit!
  • Someone Off Camera: Please, try not to cuss.
  • Drunk Man 1: Fuck, sorry. It's just-
  • Drunk Man 2: *barges onto camera and pours beer over self* We beat the FUCK out of that dude! Whoop whoop! I don't care who the fuck you are: wolf man, clown, fucking draculas, you come out of the woods looking at me weird you're getting your dirty ass bea-
  • *cuts back to newscaster*
  • Newscaster: Uhm... many residents of the city have dubbed this furry attacker as the Third-Eyed Wolf. Currently, the Third-Eyed Wolf is still at large. Authorities are advising everyone to remain vigilante and *TV turns off*
  • Doggo: THIRD-EYED WOLF? IMPOSSIBLE. AN IMPOSTOR. I HAVE TO VISIT THIS NEWS FACILITY AND MAKE THEM FIX THEIR ERROR.
  • Doggo: *walks up to the apartment door, stares up at it and takes in how large it is* ...DARN. THIS TINY DOG'S BODY WILL DO ME NO GOOD.
  • Doggo: *glances over at an open window* SALVATION.
  • Doggo: *hops onto the windowsill, and hops out of the window, fall is cushioned by a garbage bag below*
  • Doggo: *walks to the front of the apartment complex and spots a cyclist*
  • Doggo: *walks in front of the cyclist's pathway*
  • Cyclist: *breaks* Whoa! I almost hit you, puppy. Aren't you cute!
  • Doggo: *wan* *wan*! I AM NOT CUTE, HUMAN. YOUR FATHER WAS DISAPPOINTED IN YOU. YOUR WIFE IS UNFAITHFUL. YOUR LIFE IS A WASTE. ABANDON YOUR PEDDLING DEVICE AND WALK INTO TRAFFIC.
  • Cyclist: Guh, y-you're right. Nothing matters. *drops bike, walks into traffic*
  • *cars swerve trying to avoid the cyclist*
  • Doggo: *hops onto the fallen bicycle* ...MY SMALL PUPPY BODY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO OPERATE THIS DEVICE.
  • Cyclist: *still walking through traffic, only narrowly avoiding being hit*
  • Doggo: HUMAN, RETURN. YOUR MISERABLE LIFE HAS SOME WORTH YET. I AM IN NEED OF YOUR ASSISTANCE.
  • Cyclist: *turns to look at doggo* Huh? Me?
  • Cyclist: *gets hit by a truck*
  • Doggo: ...DARN.
  • Passerby: *screams as she watches the cyclist get hit*
  • Doggo: *wan* *wan*! EVERYONE CAN SEE THROUGH YOUR SHALLOW FEIGNED CONCERN. YOU'RE IMPRESSING NO ONE. YOUR LIFE IS AS EMPTY AS YOU THINK IT IS, AND EVERYONE KNOWS THAT. ANY AND ALL INTERACTIONS WITH YOU ARE ACTS OF PURE PITY.
  • Passerby: *gets teary eyed* Really?
  • Doggo: ABSOLUTELY. NOW MOUNT THIS PEDDLING DEVICE AND TRANSPORT ME TO THE NEWS FACILITY.
  • Passerby: *sits on the ground* I don't think I want to. I just want to sit here and waste away.
  • Doggo: YOU CAN DO THAT ON YOUR OWN TIME. NOW, I NEED YOUR HELP.
  • Passerby: What help am I? You can find someone much better than me to help you. I never even learned to ride a bike. I just want to curl up and die.
  • Doggo: ...DARN. YOU GO WALK INTO TRAFFIC TOO THEN.
  • Passerby: I don't want to. I don't even deserve to be smashed across a car's window like a fly. I just want to sit here until I starve.
  • Doggo: YOU ARE BEING OVER DRAMATIC. PATHETIC. PERHAPS I AM TOO GOOD AT THIS.
  • *an ambulance shows up*
  • Doggo: CLERICS?
  • *EMTs rush out of the ambulance to tend to the cyclist*
  • Ambulance Driver: Looks gruesome, jeez.
  • Doggo: *wan* *wan*!
  • Ambulance Driver: Hey there, little puppy! What are you doing in the street, bud? It's dangerous.
  • Doggo: YOU HAVE A MASS GROWING IN YOUR BRAIN. IT IS TERMINAL. EVEN IF YOU GET SURGERY, YOU WILL DIE FROM IT. FURTHERMORE, YOUR DAUGHTER WON'T EVEN CARE MUCH ONCE YOU ARE GONE.
  • Ambulance Driver: *sweats nervously* You can't possibly know that. I don't have a mass in brain.
  • Doggo: YOU ARE RIGHT. I CANNOT POSSIBLY KNOW. HOWEVER, I DO KNOW WHAT IS ON YOUR MIND. THE MIGRAINES, THE LIGHTHEADEDNESS, IT BOTHERS YOU. DID YOU KNOW THAT MOST PEOPLE WHO SUFFER FROM THOSE SYMPTOMS HAVE TERMINAL CANCER? ALSO, YOUR DAUGHTER'S ALOOFNESS IS NOT JUST A "TEENAGER THING". SHE HATES YOU. THE RESULT OF BAD PARENTING. SHE SHOULD HAVE STAYED WITH HER MOTHER. DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO YOUR FRIENDS OVER THERE.
  • Ambulance Driver: *revs engine*
  • Doggo: ON THE OTHER HAND, DO NOT. I NEED YOUR ASSISTANCE. DRIVE ME TO THE NEWS FACILITY. THEN RUN PEOPLE OVER.
  • Ambulance Driver: *opens passenger door* Absolutely.
  • Doggo: *hops inside the ambulance* GOOD. MAKE HASTE.
  • *ambulance drives off*
  • Me: *walking back to the apartment complex with my roommate*
  • Roommate: So, are you feeling better now.
  • Me: No, I think I'm feeling worse knowing that my roommate is a complete sociopath!
  • Roommate: *nearly trips over passerby on the sidewalk* Watch where you're sitting, you homeless bum! I could've gotten hurt.
  • Passerby: ...
  • Roommate: The city should do something about these vagrants. Like, I can feel property values dropping just looking at them.
  • Me: *looks at the accident in the street* Jesus, what happened?
  • Roommate: Looks like some kind of car accident. Who cares, it's not like it's any of our business.

weird crit role dream i had that took place in a weirdly huge and empty wal-mart:

  • sitting in around a campfire w vox machina in the freezer aisle. get everyone popsicles (the kind in a tube) Vax throws a shit fit bc i gave him a yellow one and he can’t stand banana flavored things
  • Vax apologizing when he realized it was lemon, not banana
  • shopping cart races to rescue Scanlan (???) threatened to kick Percy in the dick bc he jumped onto my cart and fucked up my balance
  • Grog in a shopping cart
  • Trinket in a shopping cart
  • some sketchy ass dude w miniature horses??? in wal-mart??? he kidnapped Scanlan??? idfk??
  • Vex riding a hilariously too small child’s bicycle (training wheels included) thru the aisles with Trinket pattering after her
  • Pike in a barbie jeep wearing sunglasses and saying “later, sluts” and driving directly into a stack of boxes
  • Grog riding behind Pike in the barbie jeep– saying “beep beep motherfucker” when they almost run over Percy
  • i have no fucking clue

Since the 1980s, for instance, the real price of a midrange color television has plummeted about tenfold, and televisions today are crisper, bigger, lighter and often Internet-connected. Similarly, the effective price of clothing, bicycles, small appliances, processed foods — virtually anything produced in a factory — has followed a downward trajectory. The result is that Americans can buy much more stuff at bargain prices.

Many crucial services, though, remain out of reach for poor families. The costs of a college education and health care have soared. Ms. Hagen-Noey, for instance, does not treat her hepatitis and other medical problems, as she does not qualify for Medicaid and cannot pay for her own insurance or care.

Child care also remains only a small sliver of the consumption of poor families because it is simply too expensive. In many cases, it depresses the earnings of women who have no choice but to give up hours working to stay at home.

“The average annual cost for infant care in the U.S. is $6,000 or $7,000 a year,” said Professor Ziliak of the University of Kentucky. “When you look at the average income of many single mothers, that is going to end up being a quarter of it. That’s huge. That is just out of reach for many folks.”

Changed Life of the Poor: Better Off, but Far Behind - NYTimes.com

This is why the “how can they be poor if they have [material object]?” argument is so crap. A massive television costs 1/7th of what childcare costs in a year, and that’s at the expensive end of television prices, and the average for child care.That’s before you even start talking about health care, rent, food, car maintenance, and education – all of which have grown less affordable in the meantime.

Why is time changeable when I’m with you?


When we’re having breakfast in bed and our bodies naked under the white sheets of our white bed—only to realize that we’re late for work.
 

It felt like a few minutes that evolved into a few hours. 


And I’ve only known you for a few months. But why does it feel like I’ve known you a few years back? 


Have we met in another time, another existence?


Have we met in a local diner downtown? Were you my seatmate when I was in kinder? Were you the smiling girl riding the small purple bicycle on my street every 5:00 pm when I was still 12 years old? 


Please tell me you’re all of them. Please tell me you’ve known me in a time when we were still unknown. Please tell me you loved me in a time when love for us was still a mystery.
