so that we both can be comfortable

caligeno  asked:

Yo mars idk if you watch this show but I was watching pit bulls and parolees on animal planet and I got an idea for a voltron au where Keith works at a dog rescue shelter and shiro is a vet there and then lance and hunk and Allura work at a cat shelter Altea and Allura is a vet there and a family of kittens and their mom are dumped at Keith’s dog shelter and they’re like “we can’t comfortably House this family w all these dogs” and that’s how Keith and lance meet. 1/2

2/2 so like details are fuzzy but basically both shelters end up closing or something based on financials or whatever and they all decide together since they’re friends to start their own shelter called Voltron and there’s a dog side and a cat side bc they’re both different speeds and Keith basically runs the dog side and lance runs the cat side & Adam quits his regular human job to help out w the shelter & help w adoptions n all that jazz thank u for comin 2 my tedtalk I thought u would like it

This is The single most valid thing I’ve read all month thank you so much for this

My friend told me a story he hadn’t told anyone for years. When he used to tell it years ago people would laugh and say, ‘Who’d believe that? How can that be true? That’s daft.’ So he didn’t tell it again for ages. But for some reason, last night, he knew it would be just the kind of story I would love.
 
When he was a kid, he said, they didn’t use the word autism, they just said ‘shy’, or ‘isn’t very good at being around strangers or lots of people.’ But that’s what he was, and is, and he doesn’t mind telling anyone. It’s just a matter of fact with him, and sometimes it makes him sound a little and act different, but that’s okay.
 
Anyway, when he was a kid it was the middle of the 1980s and they were still saying ‘shy’ or ‘withdrawn’ rather than ‘autistic’. He went to London with his mother to see a special screening of a new film he really loved. He must have won a competition or something, I think. Some of the details he can’t quite remember, but he thinks it must have been London they went to, and the film…! Well, the film is one of my all-time favourites, too. It’s a dark, mysterious fantasy movie. Every single frame is crammed with puppets and goblins. There are silly songs and a goblin king who wears clingy silver tights and who kidnaps a baby and this is what kickstarts the whole adventure.
 
It was ‘Labyrinth’, of course, and the star was David Bowie, and he was there to meet the children who had come to see this special screening.
 
‘I met David Bowie once,’ was the thing that my friend said, that caught my attention.
 
‘You did? When was this?’ I was amazed, and surprised, too, at the casual way he brought this revelation out. Almost anyone else I know would have told the tale a million times already.
 
He seemed surprised I would want to know, and he told me the whole thing, all out of order, and I eked the details out of him.
 
He told the story as if it was he’d been on an adventure back then, and he wasn’t quite allowed to tell the story. Like there was a pact, or a magic spell surrounding it. As if something profound and peculiar would occur if he broke the confidence.
 
It was thirty years ago and all us kids who’d loved Labyrinth then, and who still love it now, are all middle-aged. Saddest of all, the Goblin King is dead. Does the magic still exist?
 
I asked him what happened on his adventure.
 
‘I was withdrawn, more withdrawn than the other kids. We all got a signed poster. Because I was so shy, they put me in a separate room, to one side, and so I got to meet him alone. He’d heard I was shy and it was his idea. He spent thirty minutes with me.
 
‘He gave me this mask. This one. Look.
 
‘He said: ‘This is an invisible mask, you see?
 
‘He took it off his own face and looked around like he was scared and uncomfortable all of a sudden. He passed me his invisible mask. ‘Put it on,’ he told me. ‘It’s magic.’
 
‘And so I did.
 
‘Then he told me, ‘I always feel afraid, just the same as you. But I wear this mask every single day. And it doesn’t take the fear away, but it makes it feel a bit better. I feel brave enough then to face the whole world and all the people. And now you will, too.
 
‘I sat there in his magic mask, looking through the eyes at David Bowie and it was true, I did feel better.
 
‘Then I watched as he made another magic mask. He spun it out of thin air, out of nothing at all. He finished it and smiled and then he put it on. And he looked so relieved and pleased. He smiled at me.
 
‘'Now we’ve both got invisible masks. We can both see through them perfectly well and no one would know we’re even wearing them,’ he said.
 
‘So, I felt incredibly comfortable. It was the first time I felt safe in my whole life.
 
‘It was magic. He was a wizard. He was a goblin king, grinning at me.
 
‘I still keep the mask, of course. This is it, now. Look.’
 
I kept asking my friend questions, amazed by his story. I loved it and wanted all the details. How many other kids? Did they have puppets from the film there, as well? What was David Bowie wearing? I imagined him in his lilac suit from Live Aid. Or maybe he was dressed as the Goblin King in lacy ruffles and cobwebs and glitter.
 
What was the last thing he said to you, when you had to say goodbye?
 
‘David Bowie said, ‘I’m always afraid as well. But this is how you can feel brave in the world.’ And then it was over. I’ve never forgotten it. And years later I cried when I heard he had passed.’
 
My friend was surprised I was delighted by this tale.
 
‘The normal reaction is: that’s just a stupid story. Fancy believing in an invisible mask.’
 
But I do. I really believe in it.
 
And it’s the best story I’ve heard all year.

oh, you think it’s not love because we are only friends? you think this isn’t love? do i not miss her when she’s gone. is her smile not the thing that makes me happy. do we not sit in silence together comfortably. are we both not weird and honest and joyful with each other. am i not proud of her as if she was my blood. right now she’s on vacation and seeing her glowing with the sun makes me so happy for her. i’m sorry if you don’t have something like that; a trust that’s bone-deep, a knowing that you can go for days without speaking and still pick up the place you left off. knowing if you said “help” she’d come running as fast as the wind. but it’s love, you know. found family always is.

maybe i’m wrong but??? disabled people sometimes need help??? and everyone should be okay with that???

for example: i am disabled. have two abled siblings. we are all adults; they’re a lot older than me. my siblings both have children. i get a lot of assistance from our parents. right now, i can’t work. right now i can’t go out into public spaces comfortably on my own (i can, but it’s hard and i prefer to have someone with me). that means i can’t shop for groceries alone; i can’t go out on necessary outings alone.

it looks a lot like i’m “coddled” and babied by my parents because of this, and my siblings are both so angry over it. they get so angry that i receive assistance. they talk about how they never do (which is extremely untrue). they talk about how unfair it is; about how i’m taking the easy way out. but they are abled. they have children and jobs. they take care of themselves extremely well–especially compared to me.

i get it. really i do. but look:

nobody who receives special assistance enjoys it. nobody likes being stared at while they get help. we all want to be able to say yes, i have a job; yes, i can take care of myself; yes, i am abled. but not all of us can.

i am an adult who is often seen as a child because of the assistance i receive and the life i lead. of course i don’t like it. nobody would like it. i hate “taking the easy way out” as my siblings and so many people refer to it. i want to be an independent human being. i want a career and a life. but right now i can’t; some people never can.

tl;dr some disabled people need help, and that should be respected. we aren’t taking anything away from abled people. we are getting the help we need to survive.

absolutely okay for abled people to reblog

Well we have already seen how 'well' Aquamarine gets along with Peridot and Lapis but how do both get along with Topaz? I imagine she is considerably easier to talk to compared to Aquamarine so can we see the two interacting with Topaz?

Here are some drafts of a comic I’m probably not going to finish

So yeah, Topaz gets into cooking! 

Out of the two, Lapis is the one that Topaz enjoys to be around the most. She chose to take things slow with her newest Earth student and tries to be as understanding as she can to make her comfortable, which Topaz really appreciates.

okay but can we talk about the june picture? it’s dan’s birthday month so they’re doing what dan loves the most :( just chilling in comfy clothes on the sofa with a puppy :( soft smiles on their faces bc even after all these years they still love being with each other :( they don’t need anything fancy, they can just sit next to each other and show each other cute sloth videos and sometimes dan could get up to make them both some tea or something? and that’s enough for them. i’m emo LOOK AT THEIR FACES they’re so comfortable :((

For anyone who ever falls in love with her, or wants to be with her; She loves FaceTime calls, especially video calls she’ll probably like seeing you because I definitely like seeing her. And hearing her voice. Her voice is special, and perfect to me because it’s hers. I could listen to her talking all day. Even if she’s complaining. She absolutely hates slow replies and being ignored, so reply to her as quickly as you can. And if you go out or you’re busy, make sure you tell her. Don’t allow her to overthink, and worry about you. It’s bad for her. Listen to her. Especially when she talks about something that makes her happy or inspires her. Listen. Even if she talks for hours , listen. Have deep conversations with her, about anything. She loves that. Talk to her for hours until 4am and you’re both tired , but happy so it doesn’t matter. Talk about weird things , like I do. Reincarnating into a tiger and a dolphin, so when we both die we can be happy together. Yes that’s weird but it’s us, and I love that. I’m sure she does too. Make her feel wanted, she absolutely hates feeling unwanted. I can assure you she’s wanted. More than anything by me. Send her cute messages and paragraphs , anything to make her smile, it’s difficult to make that girl smile. So it’s extremely precious to me when I see her smile. Be patient with her, it takes time to understand her. Wait. Wait a long time, as long as you need to wait until she’s comfortable to tell you something, for example if she’s in a bad mood. Don’t pressure her to tell you, don’t assume things. Yes I do that because I’m insecure and I overthink. But don’t make assumptions. Wait until she’s ready, but reassure her, so she knows you care. Please be patient and she’ll open up to you, if she trusts you. And it’s very hard to gain her trust. Appreciate her. Everything about her, how beautiful she is from head to toe. Her soul, her heart , her mind. I mean everything. This girl is special. Real fucking special. When she’s insecure and gets jealous of other girls , remind her she’s the best. To me she’s the best anyway. I wouldn’t want anybody but her. Admire every single thing about her. Emphasis on admire. She’s perfect. My perfect dolphin, I’d call her. That’d make her smile. All our little weird conversations mean a lot to me, and all our memories. I love her smile though, she hates it. But out of all the thousands of smiles I’ve seen hers is the best. I honestly can’t put into words how beautiful she looks when she smiles. The way her eyes glisten, sparkling omg. She hates her eyes too, because they’re “ boring brown” but to me they’re far from boring. They’re the type of eyes I could look into all day long and not for a second be bored. Even sitting in silence with her is perfect. The vibes off her are the besttttt. It’s unexplainable tbh. Don’t use her, never do that, she’s been hurt way too many times before and doesn’t deserve any more pain. Her happiness means the world to me. And if she ever becomes yours, do your best to keep her happy. This girl is different from the rest, NO ONE is like her. I swear you’ll never come across someone as perfect, precious, beautiful, amazing, out of this world etc. (I could go on) like her. Sometimes I have to ask myself if I’m dreaming, because the amount of love she shows and all she does for me is unbelievable. And if you can ever call her yours , you’ll be very blessed to have her. This girl has her guard up too, a huge wall you have to break down bit by bit, for a very long time. Until you know her. I don’t know her to the full extent but I know her better than anybody else. And I love her more than anybody else has or ever will.
She loves being called babygirl, princess or wifey. Or in our special kinda way she’s my dolphin. Something like that will make her smile. Don’t call her “B” or “baby” or “ babe” she thinks it’s cringe, or “ year 7 relationships” she’d say. And don’t put like 100 heart emojis or weird emojis when you text her, just be normal. When she’s happy she’ll put a lot of emojis. Pay attention to them. They represent her mood. It’s pretty important to me.
She’s passionate about reading and she’s soooo fucking good at writing. Anything. Literally. She’s the most intelligent, smart , brainy ( whatever you wanna call it ) girl I’ve met. No exaggeration at all. She absolutely loves getting new stationary, fine liners , coloured felts, glue, sticky notes, sexy note pads. You name it. And if she loves you she’ll spend hours and hours creating things for you. She’ll write you books if she’s 100% in love with you ( I’m lucky asf to get that ) even make a canvas of photos together. She will do a HELL of a lot. So appreciate that. If she’s ever yours. I appreciate her and I’m so thankful for every single thing she does.
She loves bright colourful sunsets ( purples and pinks , blues ) she likes it when they start to go dark though right at the end of them. She would spend ages taking photos of the sky , until it’s “ right ”. Sunsets are another thing that make her happy. Her happiness is key, remember that. And I hope In the future, me and her can sit and watch sunsets together. But if she becomes yours, please sit and admire the sky with her. Do anything you can to make her happy. She deserves happiness. And more. She loves romantic movies, tbh they’re her favourite, and horror movies. Lying in bed and watching a movie she’ll like, will make her happy. Some days she will push you away, and she’ll get angry at you for little things, but you need to understand that, that’s her. But try and stay, reassure her. Tell her how much she means to you, she loves when I do that. She will just stay in bed some days , not move at all, cry and hate herself. Those are the difficult days, don’t leave on those days. Do whatever you can to make sure she’s okay. Remind her that everything will be okay , the bad thoughts will go away. They don’t last forever. Better things will come.
She gets jealous too, very easily , if she loves you. Focus on her and nobody else, don’t ever take her for granted. Ever. And she doesn’t like going out, in crowded places , so don’t pressure her to go out. Whenever she’s ready you’ll know. She’ll prefer being indoors as long as she’s in the presence of someone she loves. That’d make her day, she’d say to me. There are a thousand of other things I could say, but hopefully this gives a decent idea. If you’re ever lucky enough to call her yours , protect her, love her, appreciate her. Take all of this into consideration. There’s much more I could say about her, but there aren’t many words to express how deeply in love I am. Hopefully nobody else will ever have her and she’ll be mine until forever ends.But I will always love her no matter what. Regardless of anything, literally anything. I promise that.

When dragons cry

Context: The party Cleric had managed to accidently blind herself with a nat1, resulting in her spell going off behind her eyelids instead of in front of the Dragon.

DM: you’ve demoralized the Dragon by blinding yourself, he is able to do nothing but stare in abstract horror.

Barbarian:….. so does that mean I get an advantage roll?

The party proceeds to attack the Dragon as He stares at the cleric.
Several failed rolls from both the Cleric and the Dragon to recover later.

Cleric: I’m done, I’m never going to see again, I’m just going to scream

DM:…… the Dragon is so disturbed by you that he curls up into a ball and starts to cry.

Wizard: Does anyone else feel bad about what we are doing to this dragon?

Rogue: Can I comfort the dragon?

DM: You want to go comfort the dragon you just spent the last 4 turns attacking?!

Wizard/Rogue: Yes please!

DM: The dragon is to horrified to notice….. this is why I don’t give you nice things

The dragon remained inconsolable after we bullied it to the point of tears, and with the Dragon and Cleric apparently unable to recover we carried the Cleric back to town leaving the Dragon to cry.

Lock Screen [P.P]

Prompt: “I’m your lock screen?!” - “You weren’t supposed to see that.”

Pairing: Peter Parker X Reader

Genre: Fluff

Masterlist


Peter wouldn’t feel comfortable around others. He would always be so shy and quiet and that used to irritate him so hard that the boy always felt like he wasn’t enough. Even though, he never made such a big deal about that.

Until he did, and it was when he met you.

You had transferred from another school from another state, but you were a smarty pants and could keep up just fine. He met you in chemistry and he invited you to pair up because he could see you were looking like a lost puppy — the most beautiful one. 

So Peter felt like he had to forget the shy and quiet side about him and grow some courage to talk to you. 

After that, you joined him for lunch and met Ned. Then he invited you to watch movies at his and the friendship started to grow larger. And guess what? You two became the best of friends! The kind of friends that would hug each other and blush; the kind of friends that would cuddle up when watching a Star Wars marathon; the kind of friends that would always hear about “how cute they would look like together”.

And as your mom — and everyone else — could say, he had a huge crush on you.

Your mom started to notice after the day when he went to your small apartment to do homework. She invited him for dinner and he stayed, and that night, boy, she could see those sparkling eyes directed to you and only you. It was a shame that her daughter never noticed them, because even after the dinner she could tell that he always looked so focused on her daughters features. 

And you… that wasn’t an easy case to solve. What the boy didn’t know was that from the moment where you met him in chemistry to now on you had a crush on him. But he was so oblivious to the world around him that he couldn’t see the most obvious thing. 

It was until the day when you went to his to study. You saluted May and she gave you a warm hug before letting you enter the apartment. You and Peter got to his room and he fell to the bed, spreading his arms and sticking his tongue out. You rolled your eyes playfully and crawled up his body, resting your head on the crook of his shoulder and rubbing your nose on the skin of his neck.

You didn’t know that he was trying to hide the way that those chills were sliding down his spine, almost like a race. His arms went around you, hugging your small frame and pulling you as close as he could and he buried his cheek on your hair, taking in the scent of your shampoo.

“You are so comfy” your voice sounded muffled against his body and you let out a little laugh. 

“I must be, since you already claimed me as your snuggle pillow” he said against your head, his breath so hot as his arms that were burning on your back.

You smiled to yourself and you both remained in silence for a little bit. When you yawned, he moved until he could see your face.

“Are you tired?”

You nodded slowly and yawned again “I can’t be. We have to study.”

“I can make you coffee” he said and you looked up again.

The idea was great, but you didn’t want him to leave you. The position that you were in was so comfortable and it almost never happened before. 

“No, it’s okay, Pete” you smiled and almost didn’t notice that his fingers were tracing patterns on your cheek. 

“I’ll make some” he moved a little just to free himself from your grip and stood up. “I’ll be right back”

When he left the room you felt lonely. You could feel his body heat still on the bed covers and his scent in your nose. Biting your lip, you sat up and crossed your legs, letting out a puff of air from your mouth. Suddenly, his phone started to vibrate on the surface of his nightstand and you leaned in to grab it.

It was late when you picked the phone up and you snorted. You turned it on just to see who it was and you let out a surprised gasp, letting it fall from your hands onto the covers. Quickly, you grabbed it back and looked at the screen for a good moment.

When Peter got back and saw your widened eyes, he arched his eyebrows, holding two mugs as he walked slowly in your direction.

“Is everything okay?” He asked, putting the two mugs on the nightstand.

I’m your lock screen?!You showed him the picture that you saw just seconds before.

Peter felt his heart skipping a beat when he got closer to the screen and saw what you were talking about. The picture was one of those he used to take when you were distracted. That day, when you two were studying in the library, he saw you with different eyes — not those “I have a crush on you” eyes, but the “I’m falling for you so hard that I can’t even breathe” eyes. 

You were just so calm and focused on that book page that he had to capture the moment; to capture that strand of hair that just couldn’t stay away from your face; to capture your head resting without effort on your hand; to capture the way you were biting your lip in the slightest way as possible; to capture it all. And he chose that as his lock screen picture to never forget about that moment.

You weren’t supposed to see that!” He said in his defense, not making the situation any better. “Oh my god, (Y/N), I’m so sorry. I’ll-”

“Don’t change” you let out quickly and locked your sweet eyes with his.

“I- What?!”

I-I liked it” you told him, trying to smile, but feeling too many emotions to think properly. “And I… I like you”

Peter suddenly forgot how to speak. His eyes were wide open, feeling his heart racing as fast as a Ferrari and his legs trembling.

“… You do?”

You nodded and smiled again. Peter took that as an excuse to get closer to your small frame and sat by your side slowly. You took his hand in yours and interlaced your fingers together, guiding them to your mouth, kissing every one of his knuckles with such delicate lips that he almost didn’t notice.

“I like you too” he smiled, his heart going even wilder. “A lot.”

You moved closer to him and kissed his cheek, your lips lingering a little longer there while feeling the heat growing and smiled to yourself. I caused this.

You know,” he started, biting his lip lightly “y-you can kiss me on the lips.”

Now it was you the one that was blushing. You got closer again, your lips ghosting over his while both hearts were trying to jump off your chests to dance together, as only one. Peter closed his eyes and so did you, closing the little space that stood between you, sealing both delicate lips. 

anonymous asked:

what does mike have ptsd from?

His best friend went missing and was later found dead, he jumped of a cliff to certain death to protect his friend (I feel like this doesn’t get mentioned as much as it should like Mike accepted death to save Dustin), him and his friends were hunted by the government and chased through the streets, he saw like 10 government agents die in front of him then watched the girl he promised to protect sacrifice herself for him and as we know from season 2 these experiences have affected every aspect of his life. All of the kids have obviously been affected but I think Mike is especially traumatised because he’s (for lack of a better term) the mom friend of the group, he’s based his personality around his ability to protect others, and he promised to protect El so presumably he feels immensely guilty about her disappearance. Furthermore Mike is the only one of the kids without a proper support structure around him. As we’ve seen in season 2 Will has Joyce and Jonathan who as we know would do literally anything for him and who he can talk to about everything that happened because they know about the upside down. Eleven also has this with Hopper and even though she can’t see Mike she does know he’s alive. Lucas and Dustin have both obviously been affected but Lucas has an intact seemingly happy and healthy communicating family that he clearly feels comfortable talking to. Dustin is presumably the same, although we see less of his mother they do seem to have a good relationship. Mike on the other hand hasn’t been raised to communicate and open up to his family, his father is inattentive, his mother has given up trying to get through to him by season 2 (I do think she cares deeply about her kids but Mike isn’t allowed to tell her about why he’s acting out which is what I think caused her to act irritated towards him in season 2) and Nancy is dealing with her own loss (also Nancy is able to talk to her mother about Barb while Mike can’t talk about Eleven at all). From season 2 we see Mike and the gang is more focused on making sure Will is okay than dealing with their own traumas surrounding the incident. I don’t think it’s in Mike’s nature to open up and share his emotional burdens with others which in turn led to his acting out during the year El was missing and the entire incident having an enormous affect on him.

Mike’s experiences especially, get overshadowed more than Dustin, Lucas or Nancy etc because he’s so focused on helping others deal with their trauma. In season 1 it was El, in season 2 it was Will. The scene with Mike and Hopper after El’s return is one of the only times we get to see the true emotional toll all of this has taken on him. My hope for season 3 is Mike finally opens up to someone (please let it be Hopper) and actually works through his issues and PTSD.

Thanks for the massage bruh!

This happened couple years ago. Long story, TL:DR at the end.

I was a student and i was working shit tons to be able to pay for my school. I was driving a cab or a limo at nights so I usually would skip classes except exams or finals. It was one of days that i had to be in school for a final exam. This exam would determine if i need to go another semester or not.

I borrowed my friends car that day. I was kinda hungry. After a quick drive thru, i grabbed some burger king. We hit a red light. I knew it was a long one. I pulled out fries, opened a ranch sauce and i was enjoying the fuck out of them fresh fries. Until i look at the rear view mirror. I was the very first car at the lights, in a super busy street. I saw a buick in the mirror, coming at me really fast. I totally knew that he/she wouldn’t be able to stop. I put it on park, pushed the hand brake (i’m still holding the ranch sauce.)and stepped on the brake so she won’t hit and push me to the crossing street. Sure enough she hit the brakes, her car slided and rear ended me. It was a noisy hit but i knew it wouldn’t damage the car too bad. Being a driver gives you that experience. It was the 4th time i was rear ended that year. Big city traffic. Smh.

“I baked you cookies.” 

Peter jumped slightly, not anticipating someone to walk up behind him at his locker. Turning around, a smile was almost instant when he saw her. Shifting his bag, he accepted the little tin of cookies [Y/N] was holding out to him. “Cookies? Why?” 

Her cheeks flushed again, something that he really was starting to enjoy. Ducking her head slightly, her hair fell to cover the rest of the color that covered her cheeks. “Because you spent three hours trying to teach me one thing.” Looking up, she groaned. “And the fact that I’m helpless and I felt really bad that we lost track of time and that you may or may not have gotten at least four hours of sleep.”

Peter chuckled, opening the tin, he placed a cookie in his mouth and placed the rest on the top shelf of his locker. Taking a bite, he had to resist the pleasurable moan that came from just that one bite. Pointing at the cookie, “This, this is really good. Thank you.” Shoving some more books into his bag, he smiled. “If you made these cookies, how many hours did you get?” 

Wincing, she pointed to her coffee tumbler, “Like maybe two, if that.” 

His brows knitted together, “Do you want to take a rain-check on tonight? I can study up on the history exam myself.” Peter felt bad that she was running on fumes. 

She shook her head, “We made a deal.” Sipping on her coffee, she smiled. “Although, instead of studying at the library, if you’re okay with it. I would much rather study at my house so I can drink all the free coffee I can, to get me through it.” 

“You-your house?” 

Nodding, “Yeah, I already asked my mom not that it would have mattered. Both my parents are doctors at the hospital so they’re never home.” Leaning her head to the side, she raised a brow, “I mean we can still study at the library if that’s more comfortable-”

“-no! I mean, no, yeah, that’s fine. We can go to your house.” Peter cleared his throat, mentally slapping himself for sounding like an idiot. Closing his locker, he slung his bag on his shoulder, “What time?” 

She shrugged, “I mean we can go right after school like yesterday.” Following him the direction of their Chemistry class, she sighed. “Something tells me you’re way better at history then I am with mechanical engineering.” 

Peter chuckled, “I don’t want to brag but I am pretty awesome at history and mechanical engineering but it doesn’t hurt to study up.” Looking down at her, he couldn’t help but feel at ease talking to her. Occasionally, he’d find himself tripping over his words but for the most part, he didn’t feel socially awkward or anxious. 

“Hey guys whats up!” Ned slung his arms around both Peter and [Y/N], scaring the daylights out of them.

[Y/N] yelped out loudly, almost dropping her coffee in the process. Desperately needing the caffeine to get her through the day, she opted to save her tumbler over her binders. They scattered the floor, “Well, shit.” She blurted. 

Peter gave Ned a look while he gave an apologetic shrug, “Seriously, dude.” Bending down to help pick up the scattered papers, his attention got drawn to a realistic sketch of Spiderman. Pausing, he looked at [Y/N] who was busily trying to rescue her neatly written notes and papers. “Did you draw this?” 

Scrambling all the papers together and shoving them into her binder, she finally looked over. Her breath getting caught in her throat. “Um, uh, um.” Standing up slowly with Peter, she gently took it from his hands, “Yes, I, um, I think he’s pretty cool….” 

Ned leaned over her shoulder, smirking, “Wicked.” 

[Y/N] narrowed her eyes at him as she quickly shoved it inside a notebook. Peter had a dumbstruck smile on his face, “Yeah, he is pretty cool.” 

Tucking a piece of hair behind her ear, she nodded. “I like the whole hero in New York City thing. And despite his not so legal methods of keeping the city safe, I like it.” Biting her lip, she avoided their gazes, “It’s for my art class by the way, I’m not just randomly drawing Spiderman.” 

Peter grinned, “It wouldn’t be weird even if you were just randomly drawing him.” 

Blushing again, [Y/N] nodded halfway. “Right, well, um, I’ll see you in class.” Before Peter could stop her, she weaved in and out of students and headed to Chemistry. 

Ned slapped Peter on the back, grinning, “Dude! You are so in!”

NHL!Bitty, Part VI -  ‘The Code’

Origin: From Samwell to Seattle | Pens!AU | Part I - Hug Check | Part II - Chirping |  Part III - Post-Season | Part IV - RPF | Part V - Dating | 

Eric’s teammates are protective of their highly-publicized rookie. Maybe a little too protective. So, when a closeted!Jack gets flirty and starts flustering Eric on the ice, his Schooner teammates conclude that Zimmermann must be harassing Eric and decide to act accordingly. Leaping to Eric’s defense: starting goalie Markus Bay and defenseman Carter Morin. 

(TW: hockey violence, little bit of blood, big ol’ misunderstandings)


“You seeing this?”

Morin slaps Markus on the shoulder and jerks a thumb toward Zimmermann, who is skating determined circles around Bittle. He stops stretching and watches the Falconers forward come close, say something to Eric, and skate away quickly. This happens twice, each time, Bittle flushes and looks upset, but seems to brush it off and go back to his warm-up drills.

“Do you know what he’s saying?” Markus asks, hoping for some kind of reasonable explaination.

“No, but, just watch, man.”

Zimmermann comes in close again, this time with Mashkov in tow, and Eric doesn’t flinch, but he does something, skating away quickly as the two Falconers laugh. Again, Bittle looks uncomfortable.

“Didn’t they play together?” Markus asks. “Why’s Zimmermann being a dick now?”

endless reasons to love dean winchester 

These scenes in Let the Good Times Roll were my favorite parts of the episode, because they so perfectly encapsulate one of the many reasons I love Dean Winchester. They so perfectly capture who Dean is. 

Dean knows how to use his words, how to comfort when someone needs warmth and comfort. He opens up to Jack in the first scene, tells him about his own nightmares and helps Jack understand that mistakes are part of being human, and no matter what mistakes we make, we can always do better. Exactly what Jack needed to hear. 

And then in the next scene, we have Jack off the rails, about to kill an innocent man, and both Sam and Cas are ineffectual in their efforts to help–Cas by attempting to physically restrain Jack and Sam with his attempt to use words to stop Jack. But Dean can see neither is helping in this particular situation, so he takes action by shooting Jack, which he knows won’t hurt him. But it will get Jack’s attention, and that’s exactly what it does. It stops Jack in his tracks–exactly as intended. Situation under control. He’s given them time for words now.  

This is Dean. His empathy, his warmth, his emotional intelligence. His level-headedness, his bluntness, and most importantly, his ability to assess a situation (and the people he cares about) and do what needs to be done in order to help. This is Dean, and these scenes made me love him even more. {13.23}

Goth vs Mainstream Over 40 Years

So its always kind of bothered me a bit that some goths like to really dump on modern goth styles and trends when in retrospect, goth has always mirrored the mainstream in terms of fashion in some point or another. Right from the very beginning goth was borrowing from the mainstream and vice versa. So i thought that i would break down 4 decades of goth fashion and their comparisons to popular trends and mainstream fashion to show you that goth has never been as original as you might think and that change and evolution is inevitable in all subcultures that involve fashion.

Of course we all know goth came from punk so obviously from the very moment goth stood on its own two legs, it was already borrowing style inspiration from its punk roots, but it didnt stop there.

80′s style

The 80′s were known as a pretty outrageous time for fashion and with pop music dominating the radio and television it was understandable that pop stars were a huge influence when it came to fashion. Madonna was definitely one of the most influential fashion icons of the 80′s and though she was a pop princess on the radio, some of her style often dappled in the darker side of fashion. she often sported fishnet tops, black leather and religious symbols. much like Siouxsie Sioux. Leather, spandex, lace and pointy shoes were all trendy in the 80′s, but not just in goth, but much of the mainstream as well.  Makeup was often bold in color and almost geometric in shape. And of course who could forget that hair? Goths in the 80′s went all out when it came to their hairstyles  but they weren’t the only ones wasting a whole can of Aqua Net in one day on keeping their hair gravity defying. Almost everyone in the 80′s at some point has backcombed, teased or crimped their locks all in the name of bigger hair.

90′s Style

Of course not every trend that was popular in the 80′s died as soon as the 90′s rolled around, and a lot of goths were still wearing looks that were common in the 80′s but much of goth fashion was becoming less punk and more romantic during the mid to late 90′s. The 90′s brought with it, a strange obsession with the occult. Shows like charmed, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and movies like The Craft, began influencing certain fashion trends. Velvet dresses with combat boots became staples in both goth and mainstream fashion. 90′s hair became less styled and more free and many goth women began adopting the free flowing look that added to the mysterious seductress vibe. Makeup became less geometric. It was popular at the time for women to go linerless or wear darker more natural tones in a smudged fashion around their eyes.  young goths were ditching the pointy shoes to go with the more popular platform style that the 90′s was known for.


2000′s Style

I think most of us can agree that the 2000′s had some really hit or miss trends in both goth and mainstream fashion and I can comfortably say that the 2000′s is seen as a rather embarrassing decade by many goths now. This was the time that a lot of misinformed young people were flocking to Manson concerts and Hot Topic and were eating up everything that they thought was goth whether it was or not. Many of the so called “goths” you saw on TV in the 2000′s were what we today consider mall goths. Mainstream fashion was really all over the place in the 2000′s and i think goth fashion was too. Pop stars were experimenting with strange color and style combinations and goths started experimenting with neon. Rave fashion had evolved and trickled over from the 90′s into 2000′s mainstream fashion and into goth as well in what is call cyber goth. In the 2000′s baggy pants became popular with young people and goths began sporting Tripp pants and other forms of cargo pants. Skater fashion clashed with the mainstream as well as with goth and you would often see goth teens wearing Avrils signature eye look paired with a fishnet top and black baggy pants. Stripped stockings became popular and high fashion was borrowing  from goth more than ever. Thankfully romantic goth survived well enough that not every goth looked like a cross between a spice girl, a raver and a character from Invader Zim, but unfortunately there were a lot of misguided youths experimenting with a subculture that they didnt know enough about and with how many strange trends we blew through in the 2000′s its understandable why goth fashion was so all over the place.


2010′s Style

And suddenly we are stuck in this strange place between the 80′s and 90′s. Mainstream fashion in the past 7 years has really borrowed a lot from the past, especially the 90′s. But this time, its doing it in a simpler, more flattering fashion. The 90′s was cool right? Well if you’re a 90′s kid like me then you probably jumped right on that 90′s revival train like the rest of us and you’re riding it all the way through nostalgia town. Grungy ripped jeans, flannel and band Ts, chunky boots and tattoo chokers are all back in style and many goths are eating it up as well. But im going to give nu goth some credit here. Some of it is really nice. Black leather jackets, velvet, occult symbols and fishnets. Its almost like its paying an homage to 80′s and 90′s goth fashion. Of course a lot of nu goth style in 2010 was really ugly garbage but the style has improved over the years, encompassing other styles such as strega fashion and ninja goth. Witchy symbols are being worn by goths and mainstreamers alike. Long band T shirts over leggings and wide brimmed hats are everywhere. Shows like American Horror Story helped kick start the witchy fashion trend and everyone is buying it. I personally enjoy a lot of aspects of modern goth fashion because they remind me of the 80′s and 90′s. Even pointy shoes are coming back into style. Its possible that with the help of nu goth and mainstream fashion we may actually be able to kickstart a new generation of traditional goths and finally come full circle.

So goth has never really been original and just like every other fashion, its going to keep evolving over time and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Now that leather jackets and pointy buckle boots are coming back into style and more people are asking who Joy Division is after seeing one of their shirts hanging up in Forever 21, we are now closer to our goth roots than we have been in 2 decades. Goth fashion was always about experimenting and expressing yourself but even the best of us have fallen prey to trends, and thats not a bad thing. Fashion is something to have fun with, and if goth really does claim to be a subculture thats “all about the music” then it shouldnt matter how a goth dresses.

I think you write Wonho perfectly! Any how... I was wondering ** IF YOU HAVE TIME ** : Could you write a Wonwoo Friends to Lovers to go with the others?

thank you so much!!! here’s friends-to-lovers wonwoo for you!~~
find woozi (here), seungcheol (here) & joshua (here

  • you and wonwoo became friends because of the fact that you both have a mutual understanding of living life quietly and letting your other friends do dumb things you otherwise wouldn’t dare to do
  • like that time hoshi told wonwoo he could do a backflip into the swimming pool and when wonwoo shrugged and said go for it a very excited hoshi ran toward the 7 meter diving board
  • and you, who’d overheard the conversation came over to stand by wonwoo and said “you know,,,,,your friend is probably going to end up belly flopping and hurting himself instead of actually backflipping.”
  • and wonwoo was like “i know,,,,,,,,,but that’s the point. i kinda wanna watch that happen.”
  • and you had nodded your head understandingly because sometimes watching other people wipe out can be ,,,,,,,,, rather hilarious 
  • and when hoshi hit the water with ,,,, you guessed it,,,,,,a belly flop you and wonwoo had both tried to hide laughter as hoshi came up for air with a pout on his face and had yelled that he’s pretty sure the sting from this flop would haunt him till he was old
  • but yeah,,,,,you and wonwoo are the calm, neutral friends of the group and so you and wonwoo have never fought or argued and for the most part you enjoy each others company even if it means you’re on your laptop and he’s on his phone
  • you know,,,,,,,,you two just click
  • which is why when you need an emergency place to crash for two weeks,,,,,wonwoo gladly lets you stay with him because there’s no way you’d be a bother??? you’re exactly like him
  • but,,,,what’s different is that,,,,,,,,wonwoo,,,,,apparently,,,,,, walks around his house without a shirt on,,,,,after the shower,,,,,,
  • and you don’t know this until you get up from your homemade bed on the couch and end up walking straight into a shirtless,,,,hair still wet,,,,,,very handsome,,,,,wonwoo in the kitchen
  • and you kind of freeze because,,,,since when did your friend have such broad shoulders? and such nice skin? and such a strong,,,looking back,,,,,,
  • and wonwoo apologizes,,,,,and you try to shake your head but you’re still standing there in shock and he tells you awkwardly that he’s got to go to bed
  • and you,,,,,it takes you a couple minutes but when you finally come to,,,,,,,you realize that,,,,,wonwoo,,,,,,has always been attractive hasn’t he,,,,,
  • and oh god as you’re laying under your blanket trying to sleep,,,,the image of him standing there,,,,,deep voice talking to you,,,,,lean body- oh GOD,,,,,
  • and in the morning you can’t even look wonwoo in the eyes you just grab a snack for breakfast and make up some excuse to run out of his apartment before wonwoo can as much as offer you some coffee
  • and ,,,,,, you can’t stop thinking about it,,,,,, wonwoo’s body,,,,,wonwoo’s face,,,,,,wonwoo’s personality that never makes you anxious and is always so well in tune with yours
  • and you almost smack your head against the wall as you’re waiting for the subway because wonwoo is hot,,,,and a good person,,,,,and you’re kinda really ok not kinda like aLOT INTO HIM
  • but it’s like you can’t,,,,,you can’t bring it up or say anything and risk messing up this great friendship you have and so you curse whatever higher power there is when wonwoo says you guys should watch a movie one night to kill time and you’re sitting on the couch,,,,
  • close,,,,,,,arms touching,,,,,,wonwoo seemingly focused on the movie with his hand grabbing popcorn and you’re just like,,,, trying not to think about how cute he looks in his sweatpants and v-neck black tshirt,,,,,until suddenly wonwoo lets his hand rest on the sofa behind you,,,,,,almost like those old tricks you do at the movie to try and put your hand around your date
  • and your brain is like!!!!!!!!!!!????????!!!!!!! but wonwoo still looks calm and you’re like??? should i scoot away??? should i lean into his arm????? oh my god
  • and wonwoo finally looks at you from the corner of his eye and you’re like quick quick say something so it’s not awkward and you’re like “i,,,it-it’s a little cold,,,,um,,,ill go get a blanke-”
  • but wonwoo grabs your hand before you get up and with his chocolate brown eyes and deep voice says that if you want, you can cuddle into him for warmth
  • and you can’t believe your god damn ears,,,,,,,,,,,but then you notice,,,,even with the calm look on his face the tips of his ears have turned a bright red and you’re like,,,,,,sjkdhfsj we’re both shy,,,,,,,,in the end we really are the same,,,,,
  • but you sit back down and wonwoo’s hand gently rests over your shoulder and you lean into his chest a bit cautiously but wonwoo adjusts himself so you can put your head on his chest
  • and somehow,,,,,,in a matter of minutes,,,,,it’s comfortable,,,,,
  • and you interlace your fingers with his and you guys are both watching the movie,,,,,,,and like you’ve been a couple for ten years not ten minutes it’s,,,,,,,,normal
  • you and wonwoo click,,,,you always will,,,,as friends and as lovers,,,,,,
youtube

for those who are comfortable with doing so: please stream the video for “빛이 나 (shinin’)” if you can! the video is currently sitting at 7.4mil views which is fantastic but the views have slowly down exponentially in the last day and some of our competition on music shows this week are starting to catch up to us.

for reference, the following is a list of music shows that count views from music videos toward the criteria for winning and the amount of percentage for each: inkigayo is 35%, m!countdown is 15%, mtv the show is roughly 12%, and both music core and show champion are 10%. a tutorial on how to stream so it counts can be found here. as we’re all aware: this is likely the only week that we’re going to be able to get the album any sort of music show wins and this is the last time that we’ll ever be able to get him a win on a music show in general so it’s important that we support wherever we can (and wherever we’re comfortable). k-shawols are doing their best to stream so i figured i’d make a post to help boost up views as well!
