so much to smile about

tag someone who will do the same to Haechan’s cheeks😂

Listen up, folks, because this is some Oscar Wilde-level karma going on.

I’m the captain of a quiz bowl team that just competed in a national competition.

Now, most quiz bowl players are guys, and most of them are really, really focused on studying their subjects. If I’d mentioned that I’m a fangirl or–God forbid–a slash shipper, I would have been laughed out of the room.

So naturally, I didn’t expect my hours devoted to Johnlock meta to ever be of use.

Wow, was I wrong.

We got one set of questions entirely about Margaret Thatcher. My friend and I answered an astonishing number of them correctly. She knew the answers because she’d lived in the UK. I knew the answers from writing meta about Thatcher’s homophobia.

We won the match. When my friends asked how I could possibly know so much about Thatcher, I smiled and said, “Oh, just Sherlock.” The only person curious to know more was a girl on the other team who scrolled through her Tumblr and nodded knowingly when I said I wrote episode analyses.

During another round, we were answering questions wherein you get more points depending on how soon you answer the question. Three words in, they mentioned the Labouchere Amendment. It sounded familiar–because I’d read about it in a TJLC meta. It was the amendment used to prosecute homosexuality in England, the one used at Oscar Wilde’s trial. I buzzed in immediately and got the question right for the maximum possible points.

We ended up winning our bracket.

For once in my life, being part of this crazy, angst-filled, and utterly devoted corner of fandom gave me an advantage over elitists who wouldn’t read a fanfic if their lives depended on it.

Thank you, TJLC.

Requested by anonymous

“It’s so good to have you here” Miss Peregrine said as you took a sip of the cup of tea she had gotten you. You had just come to the home and everyone was quite surprised to see you. You were a ymbryne after all, just like Miss Peregrine herself.

“I’m happy to be here” you said smiling warmly “I’ve heard so much about you and this place! I still have so many questions though”.

“Well I’d be happy to answer them for you” Miss Peregrine agreed to your great relief “the children are so happy you’re here let me just say. You’re like another guardian to them”.

REQUESTS ARE OPEN

other ya characters: this guy…he’s so dark and mysterious, the way he just hurts everyone around him…including me. i’ve cried so much since i’ve met him, but no no he’s just misunderstood, you don’t understand him! and sure i’ve only known him for 2 days and he has a million secrets, but i’d forfeit my life for his

inej ghafa: kaz is a literal piece of crap. he treats everyone badly, and though he’s never treated me horribly, i still won’t give in unless he shows me he can be more than all of this. until then i’ll be out saving the world because my goals are obviously more important than a relationship

Frank genuinely smiling because of Karen.

Shitty borrows Jack’s computer sometimes, that’s nothing new. What’s new is the untitled folder just sitting on his desktop. It can’t be porn. He set up Jack’s porn folder himself. So, he knows it isn’t porn. But who keeps an untitled folder on their desktop?

Jack. Jack Zimmermann keeps an untitled folder on his desktop. An untitled folder filled with pictures and iMessage screenshots of conversations with Bitty. The pictures are mostly of Bitty, though some group shots of SMH and some others are thrown in as well. He has pictures of Bitty baking in the Haus, of Bitty walking across campus completely oblivious to the camera pointed at him, of Bitty doubled over laughing on Jack’s couch. Very rarely does Bitty seem to be aware that he’s being photographed, and yet the lighting is perfect, a calm sort of happiness seems to be radiating off of him. None of them are dated, none of them are titled. Each photo holds a memory of a person in love.

For the first time, Shitty realizes this is exactly how Jack sees Bitty all the time. Like he’s the most precious thing in existence

“I think I owe you an apology. For not creating an environment where you felt like you could talk about this with me. All those years we spent together growing up, the endless nights talking and sharing, now I realise they were all about me and my secret. There’s never been room for you, and that’s my fault, and I’m so sorry. I know this is not the same at all, but I do know how it feels to keep a part of yourself shut off. To keep it inside. And I know lonely that can make you feel. But Alex, you are not alone.”
