so ready to leave this town

there was a golden age superman comic where someone called a hit out on clark kent, and so a sniper tried to shoot him while he was out having lunch with lois

except he’s fucking superman so the bullets just fell off his chest into his lunch and clark just had to pretend nothing happened and hope lois wouldn’t notice that someone just fucking shot him

the hitman thinks maybe he just missed and gets ready to shoot him again, but then he’s watching through the scope as clark starts to eat the fucking bullets to hide the fucking evidence, acting like everything is totally normal as he noshes down on lead

dude just packs his shit up and leaves town because reporters in this city eat bullets for lunch and he’s not fucking with that no way no how

So, I’ve never written a Gilmore Girls fic before - although I might have a superhero AU in the works - but after yesterday, I just had to write this. Enjoy!

Sitting on the steps of the gazebo, Rory has a lot to think about and a phone call to make.

Sleepy Holiday

You and the boys were off on holiday to get away from the hustle and bustle of London for a couple of days. It was nearing the end and all of you were beyond exhausted as you did a lot more than excepted in your short time away. You and a few of the boys had been hanging out by the pool while the others decided to explore the town nearby one last time.

“I’m so not ready to leave this place” Oli said leaning his head up towards the sky, taking in the sun.

“Mate you say that on every holiday we ever go on” Jack said from the pool, splashing water over to him causing Oli to shout and splash back.

You smiled from your spot on the lounge chair, Oli had a point, this place was amazing and you weren’t ready to go back either. 

“What are you smiling about over there love?” Joe said splashing some water over you causing you to jump when the cold water touched your bare skin. 

“Oli’s right you know. I think this is the best holiday we’ve been on” You said sitting up and crossing your legs in the chair. “I don’t ever wanna leave either, babe can we move?”

“What?? No! You two are not leaving London! You can’t leave us!!” Jack shouts latching onto Joe who struggles to shove him off. 

“Mate its a joke. Y/N loves London and you boys too much to leave” he said after he successfully detaches Jack from his body. Jack looks over to you and you shrug and lay back down on your chair.

After a while, a shadow moved in front of you and shielded the sun from your closed eyes. Squinting them open, you smiled as you were met with a warm smile from your boyfriend. 

“Hey love”

“Hi, whats up?”

“Everyones exhausted and went inside to relax”

“Oh? And what are you doing?” You said sitting up a little and moving over so Joe could sit next to you.

“I’m going to have a nap with my beautiful girlfriend” he said laying down next to you wrapping his arms around you waist and laying his head on your chest. You ran your fingers through his hair leaning your head back against the chair.

“Sounds like a good idea” And with that the two of you dozed off.

You awoke to the sound of a camera click and the sounds of muffled laughter. Blinking one eye open you watched Caspar and Josh walk back towards the house you were all staying at. Smiling, you laid there peacefully listening to the sound of your boyfriend fast asleep. Deciding it was probably a good time to get up, you ran your hand up and down Joe’s arm, patting it slightly, waking him from his slumber. “Have a nice nap?”

“Was bloody great. You’re my favorite pillow” he kissed you before standing up holding his hand out for you to grab it. You did and he helped you get and walked towards the house still hand in hand.

“How did the love birds sleep?” Conor called out as you two walked into the house causing the rest of the boys to look towards the doorway, smirks plastered across their faces. 

“What did you guys do?” You questioned recalling that you saw two boys walk away from you and Joe moments ago.

“Oh you know, what youtubers do best” Jack said as he held up his phone, hitting record and saying “Look who’s woken up from their very cuddly nap” pointing the camera towards you and Joe.

“Cheers mate, need help getting your views back up?” Joe said causing the boys to snicker.

“Actually yes, so thank you Joe and Y/N, I knew you two were good for something”

“Also your phones might be going off all day, so sorry about that” Oli said from his sprawled position on the couch.

You let go of Joe’s hand and made your way to the kitchen worktop where you had left you phone this morning. Turning it on, you read the notifications from Twitter and Instagram ‘caspar_lee has tagged you in a photo:’. You unlocked your phone and opened Instagram and a smile crept across your face. 

Caspar had posted the picture he had taken of you and Joe and you’d be lying if you said you didn’t think it was adorable. You double tapped the picture before walking back to the couches and sitting next to Joe, showing him the picture. “Will you please send me this?” directing your voice to Caspar who nodded his head excitedly causing everyone to laugh.

Another little song fic for Zelink Week based on You Are In Love by Taylor Swift (I’m a closet Swifty, don’t judge me). Modern Zelink for the win!


It was after one of the galas held at the castle. Some important politician’s birthday, maybe the Prime Minister’s; Zelda couldn’t remember now. She could tell by the look in Link’s eyes, he was ready to leave but not quite ready to go home, so she suggested getting coffee. At midnight. ‘Cause why not.

Zelda climbed into Link’s truck, making sure not to let her party dress get caught in the door. Link took of his jacket so he was only wearing the vest of his tuxedo. She idly played with the buttons on his coat.

“Is there anywhere in particular you would like to go, Princess?” Link asked jokingly. “I hear the best coffee is found in Lake Town. I could have us there by morning.”

Zelda laughed, saying the local Milk Bar would be fine enough. But there was something behind Link’s eyes, something more than his normal mischievous and teasing nature.

They made small talk as they drive, classes, homework, Link’s woes as a dorm RA, Zelda’s rants about how biased her poly sci professor is. They end up at the Milk Bar that’s closest to campus. The neon light of the sign reflected off the thick, gold chain of her necklace.

“Hey, Zel,” Link whispered as he opened the car door for her. “Look up.”

Her shoulder brushed his as she looked up at the night sky. The moon was full, the stars were bright despite the shining lights of the city, and a comet was arching through the sky.

“Hylia’s Comet,” Zelda gasped. She turned around to see Link smiling down at her. “I completely forgot.”

He wrapped his arms around her, “Let’s get some coffee, hm?”

Zelda nodded. It was only one simple touch, but in the silence, Zelda could hear every unspoken word.

They ended up in Zelda’s apartment. Link was already up, making breakfast presumably. She threw on his shirt. The white button down was a little wrinkled, but it didn’t matter. Walking into the kitchen, Zelda saw Link turn with a sheepish expression on his face.

“Sorry,” he smiled apologetically. “I burnt the toast.”

Zelda laughed in that carefree way she really hadn’t until she met Link.

“That’s okay,” she smiled back. “It’s better crispy anyway.”

“Whatever you say,” he mumbled as he turned to scoop the eggs onto a plate.

It was Sunday, a traditionally lazy day for Zelda, but Link had to get back to the dorm for his shift at the front desk. They finished breakfast, and Link got ready to leave.

“Can I have my shirt back?” he smirked.

“Can we do this again?” she countered.

“We can most definitely do this again,” Link pulled her in for a long kiss.

“Then I’m keeping your shirt,” she whispered against his lips.

Zelda watched Link drive away from her window. She felt more at ease with him than she had with any other guy she had been with. Any fears she had about Link being with her because of her title or money or publicity were gone; she knew he would never do that to her. And such a little step meant the world to her.

They ended up in Link’s room the next time, a few weeks later. It was fun being with Link. He would drag Zelda into spontaneous kisses while they were walking to class. They would have fights about the littlest of things such as what movie to watch and talk about anything and everything, and despite the occasional annoyance, Zelda loved their conversations because it meant they were friends growing closer every day.

But this night, this night was special. Zelda could just tell by the way Link’s face looked, the way his gaze lingered, the way he smiled at everything she said.

She woke up before him and turned to look at his sleeping face. Link was adorable in his sleep. His features somehow softened, and he resembled a puppy asleep after a tiring but satisfying day. Zelda had to fight down a giggle as his lips twitched in a smile while he dreamed.

A few minutes passed, and Link blinked his eyes open. He immediately broke into an infectious grin when he saw her. Then his eyes softened, much like they had the night before. He opened his mouth, paused, closed it, then opened it again.

“You know you’re my best friend, right?” he asked.

Zelda blinked for a second then smiled, “You know you’re my best friend, too, right?”

Link’s smile returned even bigger than before, and he pulled Zelda into a very enthusiastic kiss.

He drove Zelda back to her place after a late breakfast. They sat in companionable silence, each lost to their own thoughts. Zelda knew what he had meant. You’re my best friend. She knew just like how she could feel it even as they were driving. He is in love.

And so they danced around each other for a couple of more weeks, going to events at the castle and outings to museums and parks and dates at the library or local café. Neither had admitted to what they both already knew. The next time Zelda spent the night at Link’s she saw a photo of her on his desk from when they had been playing in the autumn leaves strewn about campus.

She had thought she knew, but it wasn’t until then that she fully realized.

You’re in love, she told herself.

It came as such a sudden realization, but once Zelda knew, truly knew, it was like a comforting blanket wrapped around her everywhere she went, like a bright, warming light in her chest that she could see even when the lights were out.

So she decided to tell him on a random day, at a random time, because he gave her that adorable, sheepish look that left her breathless, and the warmth in her heart just swelled.

“I love you.”

Link’s eyes softened in that way that just made Zelda’s heart swell even more.

“I love you, too.”

when people say James and lily would have divorced if they lived all I can think of is:
james and lily fighting because he can’t stand the bowie record she keeps playing after three days straight of it or lily snapping at james because he developed this habit of tapping his foot at dinner because he hasn’t been out in so long and he missed fresh air and going into town and riding his broom at night.
one day it all just becomes too much and after they put harry to bed, they go get ready for bed themselves and james left the cap off the toothpaste again and she’s had enough and james snaps back about how annoying it is when lily leaves the fridge door open because she’s too preoccupied with her reading to remember to shut it and they just go at it back and forth until eventually, james has to laugh because lily’s face is as red as her hair and it somehow makes her eyes even greener and wow he almost forgot how pretty she is and lily cant help but melt when he reaches for her hand and pulls her close and why were they fighting again?

I feel like I’m on a turning point in my life. In a week I will be in the North of France for an internship at my favorite cultural tv chanel (Arte). And in june I will be back in my town for an internship for a fashion magazine that writes about fashiontech (crossroad between fashion and technology, connected pieces of garnment, etc). I feel so excited, but terrified of change at the same time. I hope I won’t disappoint the people I will work for. Of course I’m sad to leave my dear ones for a while, but my boyfriend is really supportive and it helps me a lot. I feel so lucky and loved for once in my life and ready for new adventures!

You know, one thing that’s bugged me as I’ve been writing fic and replaying the game, is I could never tell for sure what Rachel and Chloe’s relationship was. Chloe says in a couple of places that she loved Rachel. Rachel cared for Chloe, but it seems like she wasn’t nearly as attached to her.

Basically, Chloe’s plan was to get out of town with Rachel. Rachel though seems like she was ready to leave town without Chloe. Chloe makes two statements in that first scene in her room: 1) Rachel would have told her before leaving and 2) Something happened to Rachel.

Item 2) is true. Item 1)… not some much by the look of it. She asks both Frank and the trucker to drive her out of Arcadia Bay.

So… unrequited love? 

The really awful part is that Chloe ends up in that bathroom at the start of the game because of the money she owes Frank, which she used to fix her truck… so she and Rachel could out Arcadia Bay together. ;_;

Nice To See You Again // Frat Calcium Hood

Im bored hmu :’))))))

Requested: Yep Yep Yep

Rated: R

**Requests are open!!

>>>>

It was Winter break, so of course the first thing on your mind was Party.

Your friends and you heard about some party at a frat house only an hour away from your town so of course you guys were going to crash that party and hook up with some other college boys rather than the ones at your shitty college.

All of your friends were ready by 7, allowing you to leave on time and get there by 8. The house was huge, and definitely bigger than the other ones you’ve been too. You all hopped out of your car going into the house that was already crowded. You would think people would want to go home and see their families but instead they are here partying with some college boys? 

You all parted your ways, you heading to the kitchen grabbing something to drink. Without alcohol in your system, you were a buzz kill, according to your friends. You downed a cup of whatever and poured some more pushing your way back into the crowd. You pushed yourself into the living room finding it a little less crowded. You scanned for one of your friends, your eyes only falling onto a familiar male.

“Calum?” You called to the boy, his head snapping up to look for the voice who called his name. You waved as he saw you smiling and walking over to you.

“Y/N! Long time no see.” He smirked pulling you into a hug. You hugged back, memories of the last time you saw him flooding into your brain.

“Yeah it’s nearly a year.” You smiled, “What brings you here…?” You asked.

“Uh this is my frat.” He chuckled showing you his clearly new indian tattoo that you saw around the house when you first got here.

“Oh I didn’t know you went here.” You mentally face palmed yourself.

“Yeah, well I do.” He chuckled to fill up the awkwardness in the air.

You both stared at each other, noticing the differences in a year. Your hair was slightly shorter. That was the only difference on you. However, Calum had changed a lot. He had definitely been lifting weights because his biceps were huge. He now had blonde high lights in his hair. And he even thinned out a little.

“Do you have a girlfriend?” You asked out of nowhere.

“No I-” He started but you interrupted.

“Good.” You smiled, grabbing his shirt and pulling him to your lips. He rested onto your lips, immediately putting his hands on your hips and pulling you closer to himself. He moved his hands to your ass, squeezing it lightly causing you to moan. He backed the two of you up to the wall so you were leaning against it, his hands still resting on your ass. 

“What do you say we go up to my room.” He panted as he pulled away from your lips. You nodded eagerly. Calum took your hand, leading you up the stairs where the want any commotion. He lead you to a room down the hall. He opened the door, his scent filling your airways instantly. You looked around his room for a second until Calum turned your body and began kissing you again, forcing his tongue into your mouth. You allowed him to be in charge as he brought you to the bed, pulling you to the bed, taking your shirt off in the process as well as his own.

“No foreplay, just fuck me.” You pleaded as he nodded with a smirk on his face. He laid you on the bed, walking to the side of his bed to grab a condom. You took this time to take off your jeans. When Calum got back in front of you he pulled his pants down along with his boxers.

“Do you want to put it on?” He asked and you nodded. You took the foil wrap from him, tearing it and went to put it on his hard on. You stroked his length as you put it on, making him let out a low moan. “No foreplay.” He hissed through his teeth. 

Once the condom was on, he pulled down your panties and pushed into you without warning. You let out a loud moan, adjusting to his length. Calum was not slow. He pounded into you at a quick pace, you holding onto the bed covers, your back arching off the bed.

“Shit- Hol- Fuck” You panted as his pace seemed to get even faster. Two more thrusts and you found yourself hitting your climax, cumming around him.

Calum’s moans got louder as he released his load into the condom, pulling out of you completely. He panted as he fell to the side of you his hands going behind his head.

“It was nice to see you again.” You giggled, also catching you breath, a tingling feeling going throughout your body.

“You too.” He chuckled pressing a quick kiss to your forehead.

sorry if this sucks

Self checkout girl, here again to tell you a wonderful (note the heavy sarcasm) story that happened yesterday.

Once again I was on Self Checkouts. And we were busy. I mean, crazy-almost-Christmas busy. But this is Michigan and the weather was almost spring like, so of course everyone was out. One of my coworkers was getting ready to leave and her last customer had to be the biggest B- in our town.

Now, let me explain real quick. We have this coupon for 5 cents off a gallon of gas (up to 20 gallons) if you spend $50+ dollars in store. One weekend a month that jumps to 50 cents if you spend $75 instead, and it just so happens that’s this weekend. Her last customer wanted to separate her orders by $75 so that she could get two of the coupons. My coworker, let’s call her T, politely told her she didn’t think that she had enough groceries to get to $75 twice. To which the lady replied, “okay.”

So T, assuming that the lady meant, ‘okay then never mind’ rang up all of her groceries together. Now the lady -did- have enough to reach it twice, but instead of saying anything she paid for the groceries and THEN had a fit when only one coupon printed out. Now I’m on the other side of the lanes - meaning T is on lane 2 and I’m all the way down at Lane 9 - and I can hear this lady just screaming at T and tearing her a new one. My manager could hear her in the office. So she came out and asked what the problem was, and this monster that was once a nice lady, turns and starts screaming at my manager, who takes her up to the curtesy desk and in five minutes has the whole thing fixed.

But meanwhile, T is in tears, trying to punch out. Now, do I think that she should have just separated the groceries like the lady asked to begin with? Absolutely. But the lady had no cause to rip into T like that. No one deserves to be screamed at like that woman screamed at T.

I mentioned my Platinum nuzlocke (that I will probably never illustrate, haha) protagonist a few times last night, since people were asking who LOCKE eventually ends up with.


This is BARTHOLOMEW “ART” KARR– Born and raised in Lilycove, Hoenn, ART was going to enter the Hoenn League challenge at 13 when the actions of Team Aqua and Magma disrupted life in the islands.  

The ensuing fight between Groudon, Kyogre and Rayquaza caused massive damage to especially the coastal towns and cities, leaving many with irreparably damaged or destroyed homes and uprooting many families as a result of the natural disasters.

ART’s family moved to Sinnoh after their home was destroyed, setting in the small rural town of Twinleaf.  The actions of the two organizations that caused so much destruction gave ART a focus for what he wanted to do with his future and he began to plan for a career within the ranks of the International Police.


Five years later, ART (now 18), is ready to challenge the Sinnoh League (as part of his entry qualifications for the INTERPOL).  

And now, more info under the cut (cause, oops, I typed up a BUNCH, haha)

You’re not being loved like you deserve and it makes you fragile to the core. I can see it. You’re insides caving in and everything shaking. It makes you want to pack your bags and leave this town but you’re still not ready. You’ve still got a lot of growing to do and you shouldn’t sell yourself short for the amount of people that weren’t brave enough to love you.
They weren’t brave enough to love you and that’s as simple as it gets.
You’ve got so much light on the inside and you shouldn’t be afraid to let it shine on the faces of those who try to love you. Let them see it. Whoever loves you- isn’t going to be scared of getting touched in places that sunlight hasn’t even reached. Whoever loves you isn’t going to look the other way. Instead they’ll put their hands on yours and you’ll know what bravery looks like in other people.
You will be loved like you deserve someday darling. I promise you.

for months they hadn’t spoke; wesleigh had broken off any contact that had been left between the two of them. at first it hurt, knowing that the person she cared so much about, wasn’t there to see how good she was doing. she was living her dream; writing songs for her first ep. she got the chance to become an artist; even after she hadn’t won american idol. and that thought had kept her on her feet. she had actually managed to leave her feelings for him behind, ready to move on. but now that she was back in town, he suddenly was super interested in her again. asking her how she was doing, how her songs were coming up. all out of nowhere? and wesleigh couldn’t help but wonder if he was just this supportive now because she was doing so great. all she knew is that she wasn’t ready for this, and that she didn’t want to let him ruin her good mood. ‘listen, i didn’t come back for you. - i didn’t.’

You could only keep Sebastian Smythe down for so long. Yeah, he had to leave Dalton Academy for a little bit but he was back and ready to resume his place at the top of the mountain. Everyone knew that he was the top dog and, while Hunter did a fair job of keeping his seat warm, he would hope that they both knew that Daddy was back in town. “You understand, right? You step down, let me lead the group, and you’ll basically have a top position in the group, aside from me, of course.”

thebreadispoisoned  asked:

In general, do apartments allow you to sign a lease to rent, but around 6 months in advance? I'm thinking about college and living arrangements for the fall semester, and I'm not sure if I'm supposed to be signing the lease on an apartment NOW or during the summer or something.

It depends on the landlord or apartment complex, but that far ahead could be tricky, as the current tenants haven’t turned in their notice yet and six months is a really long time to keep an apartment empty if they’ve already moved. However, if it’s a college town, the apartments probably go well in advance of the start of the semester because the landlord knows which students will be leaving.

So, do your research and start calling around to find out what the apartment complex’s rules are. If you have to wait, start calling when they’re ready, but at least the research part will all be done and you’ll be prepared.

Anna Summers was in the library in her high school on October 10th 1988. It was her third year in high school and she was ready to leave so she could get out of this damn town. There was nothing for her there. She wanted to travel and paint. That’s all she ever wanted, but her father thought otherwise. 

Nothing very interesting ever happened to her nowadays. She didn’t really have friends in school. That’s why she spent most of her time in the library where she could read. 

On this particular day, Anna was sitting in the library and glanced at a blonde student who walked in and caught her eye. She hadn’t seen him around ever. Anna wasn’t aware that he actually was homeschooled his whole life until now. 

OMG So much Arden/Kira drama!! I’m happy Arden is getting so much love! Yaass teen wolf writers! Now you know that Arden Cho is loved and Kira is loved!!! The war is so onn and personally i’m armed and ready to fight for my baby Kira/Arden! Arden deserves better. Kira deserves better. More screentime for Kira! No more leaving town! Chosens Unite!
