so this has basically been my day

“Long story short the Mun managed to think she can take on way more than she actually can.”

//this has been a Long time coming;; but basically the exams are starting next week see, and I need the last four days to cram as many things into my skull as I possibly can. That and I might be coming close to losing a close relative of mine, things are really stressful and I need some time to concentrate on doing life things and getting through my day.

It’ll probably end in a few weeks when exams are over and done, but for now thank you for being so patient with me.

Sheriff Knows Best

Stiles/Derek, G, 2K words, Sheriff POV, Coffeeshop AU, matchmaker!Sheriff

(Credit for the title to @cobrilee!)

This is an expansion of the following idea, written by the lovely @artemis69:

the coffee!AU, where John goes to the same coffee shop every day, and there is this very grumpy, quiet barista that always makes him amazing coffee and keep the best pastries for him. And one day the Sheriff learns that Derek is the one to bake them all, so he decides: this will be my son in law, I need a reason to have this man in my family for at least forty to fifty years. Then he matchmakes with no subtility whatsoever, basically offering his only son on a silver plate, Stiles spluttering all the way (but he takes Derek’s number anyway because the guy is just amazingly cute)

John’s on his regular morning stroll when he stops in his tracks and takes in the brand-new coffee shop, complete with a banner advertising their opening day. The little corner space has been boarded up for over a year, and John had no idea it was opening today.

Any new businesses are a boon for Beacon Hills, especially family-run ones like this one is rumored to be, so John ducks inside. It’s warm and homey, and there’s a pair of young dark-haired people behind the counter, close enough in features that they’re probably siblings. The quiet bickering points that direction, too.

They stop, though, when they see the Sheriff—the uniform tends to have that effect—and he pastes on his public servant smile. “Hi there. I saw this place was open and wanted to come on in and introduce myself. Sheriff John Stilinski.”

“Oh, it’s so nice to meet you,” the woman says, holding out her hand for a shake. A nice strong grip—John likes this girl already. “I’m Laura Hale, and I own this place with my brother Derek, our resident grumpy barista-slash-baker.”

Derek rolls his eyes at Laura, but his smile to John is genuine, if small. “Hi, Sheriff. Nice to meet you.”

“Likewise, son,” he says, perusing the case full of tempting sugary treats. “You made these?”

He nods. “Can I get you anything?”

John hums. “A medium coffee, and…any one of these delicious-looking goodies. You pick. Just don’t tell my son,” he adds, and Derek looks up at him.

“Your son?”

“I have slightly elevated cholesterol,” he says, stressing the word. “Nothing to worry about, honestly. But he polices my diet. I don’t think he knows about this place yet, though, so this is great.”

Derek hums. His tongs hover over a muffin—lemon poppyseed, it looks like—before moving to another one. Raspberry-almond, according to the sign, and well, John isn’t picky. Derek drops it into a little bag and hands it over.

“Happy to help,” he says.

John thanks him and opens the bag. Laura’s still pouring his coffee, but it smells so damn good that he can’t resist.

“Wow,” he says, his mouth full. “This is delicious.”

Derek looks quietly proud, and Laura claps him on the shoulder as she reaches over to hand John his coffee. “On the house, today, Sheriff,” she says. “Thanks for stopping by.”

“I’ll be back tomorrow,” he promises.


“Thanks, Nina,” John says dryly, leaning back so she can put his plate in front of him.

“You’re welcome, Sheriff,” she says with a friendly smile, ignoring his stink eye.

Stiles just grins at both of them and digs into his French toast. He insists on having their weekly father-son breakfast at Paulie’s Diner because no matter what John orders, Nina will only bring him an egg-white omelet with a dry English muffin. Stiles must have some serious blackmail or be paying her off somehow, and John is, he has to admit, grudgingly impressed.

“Don’t look so bummed out, Pops,” Stiles says, around a mouthful of what’s surely syrup-drenched deliciousness. “At least I let you have turkey bacon.”

“It’s not the same,” he says grumpily, poking at it. “But at least I’m getting a steady stream of baked goods now.”

Stiles glares at him. “Are you serious? From where? I thought I had paid everyone off.”

He knew it. “I’m not telling you,” he says, a little displeased with how childish he sounds.

“Fine,” Stiles says, sniffing. “I’ll figure it out, you know I will.”

He will, John knows. Goddamn, he loves his kid, even if his life goal seems to be depriving John from any and all delicious food. “And speaking of, I met someone the other day,” he starts, and Stiles gasps theatrically, his hand coming up to cover his mouth.

“Is this you crapping all over my dream of having Melissa as my stepmom?”

John sighs at the reminder. Melissa is…well, she seems happy with that Argent guy. Whatever. He’s not bitter.

“Not for me, Jesus,” he says, shaking his head. “For you.”

“Oh my god,” Stiles says, slumping back in the booth. “Eye roll” is too mild, John thinks. It’s more of a whole head roll. “Seriously, Dad, I’m only 25. You don’t have to marry me off quite yet. You’ll get your grandchildren someday, I promise. Stop trying to set me up with people.”

“I’m just trying to be helpful!” John protests. “He seems nice.”

And makes really good treats, he adds in his head. That’ll be a good trait for a son-in-law.

“And who exactly is he?”

John pauses. “I met him at the aforementioned undisclosed location.” 

Stiles snorts. “Find out if he actually likes dudes, then get back to me.”

“Okay,” he says seriously, and Stiles grimaces.

“No, Dad, don’t actually—”

Spring has sprung! What a time to be alive! Magnolias and cherry blossoms everywhere flowers everywhere warm weather I love Toronto so much. Today was a pecan-tart-look-at-flowers-long-walks kind of day because I have my last exam tomorrow and I got out of the lab early!

I’m *officially* starting my lab project once I get back to Toronto mid-May and I’m basically living at the lab to get ready for it and learn everything I can. My supervisor left for vacation this week and left me ten cell lines to maintain, so my mornings have been kind of crazy. Also, Toronto friends, let’s meet up and look at flowers together because I’ll be here all summer!

Edit: On a side-note, my glass panel is so empty now that exams are basically over and I don’t need ten sheets of organic chem mechanisms reminding me to study anymore ;; 

In honor of the new year, here is my simple tutorial for setting up and maintaining a language journal. I’ve made 3 so far using this method for spanish, french, and italian because it’s so simple. Disfruta y espero que logres sus metas de lengua este año! <3


What You’ll Need:

  • composition book
  • highlighters
  • flashcard(s)
  • black ink pen

Hey

I have been asked to make a comment on a situation in the petblr community. I have chosen to not name the blog in question, because I am convinced they are a troll and the best course of action is to starve them. I would encourage you to ignore or block them, and do not engage.

You might think my job as a veterinarian is to take care of animals. You’re wrong. My job as a veterinarian is to convince people to take care of animals.

I have been doing so for many years. I would like to think that I’m getting pretty decent at it by now, and I’ve certainly encountered my share of challenging people who were extremely reluctant to improve their pets care.

It can be extraordinarily frustrating. Seven years in this profession has turned me into a rather cynical grump these days because I’ve heard basically every excuse in the book by now. I will think some pretty mean thoughts at times, my internal monologue can be very harsh, but the words I think are rarely the words I let out of my mouth, or onto the internet.

It’s so easy to be judgemental, especially when you’re inexperienced but have recently gained knowledge that makes you feel superior or compelled to spread it. However, it’s also useless at best, and harmful at worst.

How can being judgemental about somebody’s animal care be harmful? By making those people more resistant to good advice. Whether it’s because you’ve put them onto the defensive, or because they now fear being mocked, you have contributed to the delaying or preventing of a better welfare state for that animal.

Also, it makes you kind of an arse.

Aggressively jumping to the ‘defense’ of an animal only makes yourself feel good. It makes you feel like you’ve done a good thing, even if you haven’t. Before I allow myself to be judgemental, there are a few points I consider.

  • Is it possible this person just doesn’t know what an ideal setup or situation should be?
  • Are there extraneous circumstances of which I’m not aware?

People don’t respond well to rudeness or 'being blunt’ the majority of the time. They actually become more resistant. You are kidding yourself if you believe otherwise. They might say they will follow your instructions, only for them to switch clinics and you never see those animals again.

Now I know there are a lot of people with the 'I love animals and hate humans mentality’ and many of these people will jump on any situation that’s not 'perfect’ as an excuse to be bullies towards other people.

You know the type. The ones that are expecting, and practically crowing over, any 'anon hate mail’ or supposed 'death threats’ they’re expecting to earn.

I would suggest that if you 'know’ you’re going to get hate and 'death threats’ then you’re doing something wrong, and you know it. Even if you claim you’re being 'honest’ or 'blunt’.

If you’re claiming the moral high ground, then for goodness sake act like it.

If you have knowledge, then you have the potential to accomplish something good with it. Using it as an excuse because you want to feel superior or to be mean to people is not acceptable. You can think what you like, but if you’re going to say something then make it something constructive.

If you are using animal care as an excuse to be a bully, then you’re not one of my Vetlings and I do not support your behaviour.

🌟 After a long time of waiting, you came to me. After years of being alone, I can breathe again. The sight of you sparks thoughts I’ve never tried to have. Of living. Of a home. Of friends.

… 

Who are you?

Help an Und*cumented Imm*grant get to California

I didn’t want to have to ask for donations again but I don’t think I’ll be able to go with the DACA act considering Tr*mp is killing everything Obama put into place for imm*grants to obtain c*tizenship.

(edited: February, 27, 2017)

 I have the DACA form filled out but we need an Imm*gration Attorney to look over it for mistakes or I could be rejected and dep*rted (especially with our current president) and that could take about $2500 or more (probably a lot more) just to get the attorney and we DO NOT have that kind of money..  

Good News!! Someone has offered to look over my DACA application for free, but I’d prefer to already be in California by then. 

(I’m afraid currently because of the IC.E raids happening in California but they’re happening everywhere in the U.S. and they’re already in Texas. Who knows when they’ll start searching Houston, hopefully I’ll be out of here before then.)


I’m currently living with my significant other and his family but his family hates me (bc I’m und*cumented) and they’ve been telling other people they know that I’m living w/ them and am und*cumented so I’d really like to get out of this house before someone reports me and gets me dep*rted. They aren’t helping us financially at all, not even for basic necessities. My family basically disowned me so they aren’t even an option…

My significant other has a minimum wage job so its really hard to save money and also buy things we need to live comfortably (like a meal a day, clean water, tampons, toothpaste, etc,,..) so I’m having to open donations to help us get started saving. This is a savings account I’m making to help us make it there since we’re driving ourselves.

I have a friend in California who is going to help us when we first get there but we need money to actually get over there first. We’re more than likely going to drive over there ourselves with my significant other’s car.. I might start selling some of my possessions because I know I can’t take everything over there, keep a lookout on my blog for more information on things. 

It might take us months to get everything ready but I’m working hard to make this happen. I’m tired of being stranded here when I have more opportunities elsewhere.  

Links to my cash.me and paypal.me will be on my blog.
(all the *s are there to prevent keyword searches that could put me at more risk considering the F*DS are out there)

The future - and it is showing us this loud and clear

This episode was amazing. After flailing and basically shouting all day I am so happy and so excited that I joined tumblr - the quality of posts today has been excellent, both humorous and inciteful and I LOVE YOU ALL :)

I hope its ok I’m going to tag a few great posts in this to reference as I don’t want to go over stuff other people have already meta-d about so excellently!

This episode, titled the future, seems to me to be Dabb basically telling us what he wants for the next part of the show, the “better way” that he wants to take it.

So here are my main bullet points that I will expand on a little below and link those excellent posts to where relevant:

A. Sam 

Sam is clearly portrayed again, recurrently as the researcher, the “brains” of the operation (before you say ‘Dean is so clever though!’ I’m just pointing out Sam’s love of the scholarly side of things and how this is where he fits). Sam’s endgame must now be to head up the MoL/hunter network in this respect.

B. Sam and Dean 

They work so well as a team here, Sam putting a tracker in Cas’s phone while he’s distracted by Dean, researching v whatever Dean was doing (maybe making a pining mixtape along the lines of “all by myself” and “I miss you” “please come home”, BUT they are shown as different people, with different interests, skills and relationships - with Cas for example, & not codependent. Again hammering this home in this episode. THANK YOU DABB, GLYNN & BERENS.

C. THE RECURRING AND CONSISTENT NARRATIVE OF DESTIEL.

This whole episode is one big love fest. We went from one ‘wow I can’t believe they just did that!’ to the next to the next with hardly enough time for us to catch out breath! WHAT WAS THIS EPISODE?!

OK, so we have :

1. My Romeo & Juliet / Gaze up Trope Balcony Meta.

2. The Mixtape Meta, another EXPLICIT romantic trope by @drsilverfish.

3. The Dean “keep it” parallels, the first one that came to my mind was Arwen (another human+ / eternal being who decided to relinquish immortality couple):

Aragon: this belongs to you.
Arwen: keep it, it was a gift… it is mine to give to whom I will, like my heart.

But also all the other ‘gift’ tropes, the standard romantic trope that when a couple breaks up you return the gifts…. I think Cas wasn’t sure he was going to be forgiven, after Dean’s outburst in the war room, so he goes to return the cassette, but Dean does forgive him nearly instantaneously, which actually makes it even worse that he has to steal the colt straight after…

5. The difference between Sastiel and Destiel again emphasised, more and more this season. I don’t think I even have to detail this, just, basically the whole episode shows this.

6. This magnificent gifset by @magnificent-winged-beast which shows the difference between Dean’s angst at actually watching the colt get destroyed and the potential killing of Cas…

Slight aside - Performing!Dean. 

This magnificent gifset that shows Dean’s facade coming down, he doesn’t even attempt to make it sound less ‘gay’ when he tells Sam that Cas came to his room, played him and took the colt from his secret hiding place under his pillow, he even looks down before he says it like he KNOWS how it is going to sound but says it anyway. 

source: @yourfavoritedirector.

And Sam doesn’t even flinch. YES THANK YOU DABB, GLYNN & BERENS!

4. SO…WHY is Dean still doing everything he did for Cas during this episode and still defending him to Sam even though he appeared pissed and Cas repeatedly betrayed him?

Well, in 12x12 Cas said “I love you”, clearly understood by Dean (and Sam to be directed at Dean). There was no real reciprocation though from Dean, other than Dean family-zoning him and Sam’s fantastic “we are doing this for you, Cas”. 

So regarding Dean, Cas is hurt and believes it isn’t reciprocated. Now Dean is pissed and still using the WE card at every turn, so what is a celestial being to do? Cas assumes this is the end, that there is no hope, he returns the mixed tape. BUT Dean says no keep it, this is NOT the end. 

Cas understands that this is therefore not the end, but it is complicated. He explains that he wanted to “come back with a win for you…. for myself”. He wants this for Dean and for himself, this is very important, everything he is doing now and in the future is NOT all about Dean, there is his own agency and morality involved here too.

For Cas, when it comes to it, he wants this reciprocation of his love of course, but right now he has bigger fish to fry and really he wants to protect Sam and Dean and save the world

Now, going back to the “what the hell is wrong with you man?” followed by an awkward silence…. and where Cas then goes to return the gift. Yes, Cas feels that he has said his piece in 12x12 and is rebuffed, but meanwhile Dean is struggling with what Cas has said and everything else that is going on. He has a lot on his plate, not only Cas but his own personal history, his deep seated issues that he is clearly working on this season (see all the performing!Dean facade crumbling meta going around), his issues around his mother, the BMoL, Lucifer, the nephilim…. I mean that is a lot for an emotionally healthy person let a lone DEAN WINCHESTER.

Dean is trying to say / show how he feels he’s just rubbish at it, but he’s getting better!

“We?” “Yes dumbass, WE.” This is his forgiveness. And it is betrayed just moments later. But does this stop him trusting Cas again? NO.

THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. For their dynamic, to show that they still do ultimately trust each other.

EVEN AFTER EVERYTHING DEAN STILL DEFENDS CAS TO SAM!

Oh, and I just need to add how desperate I am for Sam to turn to Dean soon and just say “No, Dean, this is between you and Cas, stop bringing me into this”. PLEASE I SWEAR I WILL BE GOOD! I mean, how repeated, consistent and out of place it was (I mean, not only to shippers, I think anyone would think it was out of place the way it was portrayed in their personal conversation in Dean’s room) - this has got to be addressed, no?!

 5. A better way

So. What does this mean moving forwards?

Well, firstly, I have moved from being 85% sure Destiel would be endgame to about 95% sure. Lets be real. This episode cements this. Whether you like it or not, it’s happening.

So, what is the better way?

Overall, it seems that Dabb wants to move things forwards. And his key points all season are Free Will, breaking from past repressions and negative influences, moving forwards with what the characters choose and want for their endgame and for sure now endgame Destiel.

I have in the past speculated about quite a lot of stuff, some right and some… still to be seen and some not right, but the overall arc speculation that I saw foreshadowed since early season 12 is RIGHT ON TRACK.

Now, the question is will Dabb go backwards and go to the old, standard SPN ways where probably Dean and Cas will be separated, Cas will be wrong again in his trust in the nephilim - it WILL be evil (rehash of s6 and s8) and he will need to be ‘broken’ from the mind control by Dean in a stronger crypt scene etc etc etc.

Or will he move forwards, onto a “better way”? Will we get another s11 ‘happy ending’? Where it appears all good but there is still stuff going on behind the scenes for s13… Or maybe a not so happy ending but that ultimately will be resolved happily? 

Maybe the baby has it’s grace removed (so glad this is an option it was driving me insane that they hadn’t mentioned it by now!) OR it’s not evil at all! it’s the ANTI-anti-Christ, it chose Cas because he is Lucifer’s mirror in that he LOVES Humanity. I mean, the whole point of the show is agency, free will and not being forced to follow the result of your parentage / past ….especially this season with Sam and Dean’s arcs….

Maybe human!Cas, potential hunter Daddies, Cas staying at home calling Dean while he’s out on MOTW hunts with Sam being all “Dean there’s poop everywhere, I’m sorry it got on your favourite shirt, but please please come home this is so hard!” “OK babe, don’t worry, we’ll be back tomorrow, the case was a milk run!” when actually Dean nearly died and Sammy saved the day and…. etc because really? what are we supposed to think from that motel scene? With Cas smiling all cute and using the world “righteous” when talking about the kids future guardian?! (and Kelly survives if we are going to be extra nice).

Maybe Lucifer will die / be dealt with and it is the MoL that are the big bad next year…..aiding the overall future arc of TFW as leaders of the MoL/Hunter collaboration (Chuck I hope so).

Or will it be a mix of the two?

Well my money is on that it will be a mix….  

DABB IS SHOWING US THE FUTURE Y’ALL. AND THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT.

Best Language Learning Apps

Learning a new language can be…difficult. Actually, at times, that’s an understatement. I’ve compiled a list of the best apps and websites I’ve found, including a few specifically for French.

Duolingo

This is one of the most well know websites/apps for langauge learning. It’s great for basics and beginning grammar. It can also be fun because you can earn points to buy extra lessons like flirting!

Busuu

Another well known vocabulary learning resource, Busuu is great because you can learn in order of A1, A2, B1, B2. I prefer Busuu over Duolingo mainly for that reason. Busuu has tons of super useful everyday vocabulary, and also phrases are taught, which can be a lot better than singular words.

Fluentu

Fluentu is an app where you can view videos in your target language with subtitles. They are divided by level which makes it really easy!

Memrise

Memrise is by far one of my favorite apps to use for language. It has many different decks of words/phrases, and each word/phrase comes up at certain times to make sure you remember them. My favorite is the conjugations! Conjugations has been the hardest thing for me with my french, and this app has helped make it so much easier for me.

Podcasts (Apple app)

This is a basic app, and it’s not really specific to language learning, but listening to podcasts is so helpful when it comes to listening comprehension. My favorite for french is News in Slow French, One Thing In A French Day, and CoffeeBreak French.

HelloTalk

I LOVE HelloTalk! It’s a really clean app that allows you to speak with people learning a language you know that, if you want, also knows your target language. It has so many helpful tools like in-app translation and you can also set up a language exchange where you text in the first language for a certain amount of words, then the other, you actually speak in the first language, and then the second. I’ve met so many awesome people from France to Belgium to Canada to Morocco!

Linqapp

I use this app a little less, but I still like it. It’s mainly for asking questions about the language you need help with. You can make sure something you wrote is correct and native sounding, or have someone help you translate a phrase! People respond super quickly on here.

Brainscape

This app isn’t specifically for language, and the company actually has some apps for specific languages, but it’s really great. It’s very similar to Memrise, except you can create as many decks as you want.

Websites and Apps Specifically for French

Learn French- Verbs

This is actually one of the apps specifically for language that Brainscape has made. It’s just like brainscape but it has preloaded cards for each verb tense and key french verbs.

Bescherelle

Bescherelle is a website, but I went onto Safari and added it onto my home screen so it was easily accessible. I love using this app for whenver I need to know the conjugation for a verb and I can’t remember! Usually translators suck when it comes to conjugation, so this is really helpful.

Frenchcrazy.com and frenchtogether.com

Frenchcrazy and frenchtogether.com are sites that feauture great tips and immersion blog posts! They are typically pretty funny and get me in the mood to study my french.

That’s all I have for now! I hope these apps can help you with your language studies. -Hailey

anonymous asked:

Know any fics that feature lots of angst but with a happy ending? (on 2nd thoughts, without a happy ending is fine as well) Thank you <3

Hello anon! Sorry it took me so long to get to this, but I’ve been pretty busy recently and also angst is really not super my thing?? But because I have an insatiable need to read every highly-recommended Drarry fic, I have inevitably read a few really good angsty ones! Just keep in mind that my threshold for angst is not very high, and these will all have a happy ending ;)

In Pieces by Cheryl Dyson (85K)- Harry returns to Hogwarts as the new DADA instructor, only to find his teaching efforts thwarted by a very familiar ghost.
This fic is absolutely amazing and filled with lots of fluff but also inevitably tons of angst because Draco is a ghost??? They can’t even touch??? *cries* I remember feeling like there was no way it could possibly work out happily and believably but I was VERY pleasantly surprised!

To Those Who Wait by loveglowsinthedark (8.5K)- Harry’s come is trickling out of my arse as I say ‘I do’ and promise to love and cherish Blaise in sickness and in health.The love of my life is preparing to leave the country as I smile for photographs.The excruciating agony of my heart shattering nearly brings me to my knees on what ought to have been the happiest day of my life.
This fic is fucking FABULOUS if you want angst with a happy ending. And I’m not just saying that because @l0vegl0wsinthedark​ is my main bitch. Harry and Draco are basically soul mates they are so made for each other, but absurdly tragic circumstances have split them up (for now). I bet reading the summary alone has already made your heart ache and now the only way to soothe it is to go read the rest ASAP, so DO IT. 

Another Mask Behind You by lettered (116.5K)- Draco is a high-end prostitute who hides his identity. Harry unknowingly hires him. And then there is porn, questions about identity, domestic bliss, more porn, and truth as seen through a web of lies. (And then more porn. Seriously, if you don’t want sex scene after sex scene you probably shouldn’t read this. And please read the warnings.)
This has a lot of things you should check the warnings for, but among them is ANGST LIKE WOAH. A mistaken(hidden?) identity fic and yeah I would be angsty too if I found out I had been unknowingly fucking and falling in love with my schoolboy rival! It’s soooo well-written and probably the angstiest fic I have ever LOVED. So much else (aka mostly hot hot sex!) more than made up for the stress it caused me! Another angsty and amazing fic that you should definitely read by lettered is The Boy Who Only Lived Twice, which also contains mistaken identity of a sort!

Written on the Heart by who_la_hoop (114K)- Harry doesn’t mind that so many Slytherins from his year have returned to finish their NEWTs, really he doesn’t. It’s just – do they have to be so friendly? He’s not prejudiced, really he’s not. It’s just – they’ve got to be up to something, right? Unnerved by the attention he’s attracting from everyone – the Slytherins are the least of it, to be fair – and struggling with a raft of changes to Hogwarts itself, Harry wishes he could be happy that one constant remains: Draco Malfoy really fucking hates him.When he’s hit by an illegal love-spell though, Harry finds he has more to worry about than whether or not Blaise Zabini actually wants to be his friend. For if everyone affected has been blessed – or cursed, by the look on Malfoy’s face – with a magical tattoo revealing the name of their soulmate, what does it mean that Harry’s skin remains completely bare?
kfhdsjrg3hi SOUL MARKS!!! c;mbxneiu EIGHTH YEAR!!! rewuy,obsk AMAZING AUTHOR!!! Need I say more? (Idk if this one counts as “really” angsty but it has an angst tag and a pining tag and I just ran across it again and really want to rec it???)

In His Nature by create_serenity (20.5K)- Harry agreed to have sex with Draco once a month in order to keep him alive, what he didn’t agree to was Draco popping up all over the place and disrupting his life in more ways than one.
Veela!Draco fic in which he needs sex with his mate to keep him alive. At first Harry thinks he’s doing Malfoy a huge favor, but soon he realizes how much pain he’s causing Draco by limiting their interactions and works on fixing that :).

Something Always (Brings Me Back to You) by Kedavranox (10K)- The Centre for Magical Theory and Complex Spell Classifications keeps fucking with Harry’s dig sites, and he’s pretty sure Malfoy has ulterior motives.
This is a getting-back-together fic… but of course it can’t happen without several misunderstandings and life-threatening situations! Yep, yep. Definitely plenty of angst here.

Also I really can’t choose a specific one (there are so many!!) but most of the longer works by Lomonaaeren have a healthy dose of angst! She has a very unique style, but if you like it (I do!!) then her literal hundreds of fics are a goldmine! 

HRT
Day #12
05/12/2017

So yesterday was a real emotional roller coaster.
I was thinking about #MothersDay and my thoughts were all good at first, I have a few mother like figures in my life that I am so blessed to have. But then, all of a sudden my brain took a detour and I was literally boo-hoo crying at the thought that one day, my moms, the women who very much contributed to who I am today, will one day pass. … I have never NOT been able to control my emotions like this. I have always been one of those people that in times of high anxiety or stress, something in me switches off, and I show little to no emotion. But yesterday… It was like every time I thought I had it together, thinking good thoughts… nope, brain detours back to traumatic thoughts and she is crying again. So basically I cried a lot yesterday over Mother’s Day.

Good News!
Today I feel better.
I have plans to have dinner with My mom tomorrow, going to go where ever heart desires. She has transformed her life lately with a knee surgery and some major life changes that have got her out camping and doing the things she loves again. It is a beautiful thing honestly, it has inspired me so much to take charge of my own body, mind & spirit. Then on Sunday, We are going over to cock dinner for George’s Mom, she has been in okay health as of late, so not good but not awful. So we are going to go spend some time over there. She doesn’t know we are coming so we hope she is pleasantly surprised. We also managed to get his sister’s in on it, and together were going to grill out and we created a meal with all of the things that his mom can eat. She has a lot of diet restrictions, so getting together for a family meal is a little more difficult, but I think George & his sisters really pulled something nice together, I’m excited.

HRT is a huge milestone for me and I wonder often, how in the deep south I managed to be blessed with not only a loving and accepting birth mother, but in my 24 years I have met and been loved & accepted by so many other mom’s.
Love on your Mama this weekend!

Xoxo

Dear Chanyeol, 

I’m not quite sure whether to classify you as dumb or cute. Seriously, Park Chanyeol? You sent a ring along with a letter with the words “will you marry me?”and a doodle of yourself kneeling, I can’t believe you!

Oh, and PS: Yes, I will.

Love, ____.

A/N: This has been sitting in my drafts for a while now sigh and I feel bad for not putting out anything this winter break! This is a somewhat exaggerated version of what is a combination of my friends’ freshman year haha. Man I love college.


College had been a lot harder than you expected and you struggled, barely able to crawl past the finish line that was the end of freshman year. As sophomore year came around, new year, new me, you had declared. You were on a mission to bring your GPA back up. No more spending your nights at some random house, celebrating a birthday of a person whom you did not know but rather more nights spent hunched over your computer in some well-lit corner in the library.

Even though you felt invigorated to start the new semester, all that disappeared by the time Wednesday came around. You’re not sure why they call the first week, syllabus week when you had homework and quizzes assigned to you already. By the time it was Thursday, you could only thank god that you were so close to the weekend.

Sat in your final class for the day, your physics discussion section, you could only dream of the long shower you were going to take once you got back to your dorm. The bell rings, and the TA gets up to begin writing on the board but the distant noises of a person running down the hallway makes it difficult for you to concentrate. Within seconds, a rather sweaty boy reaches the doorway, panting as he bows apologetically at the TA before taking a seat right next to you. The TA waves at him dismissively as he continues to drone on about the material you learnt in class this week.

“Alright, now you can work in pairs or groups to solve the worksheet. In 15 minutes, we’ll come back to solve questions 1-3,” your TA declares.

You turn to your right to see that the person next to you had already formed a group with a few other students and you were too shy to ask if you could join. You turn to your left to find the sweaty boy silently working on the problem set. Letting out a light sigh, you begin attempting to solve the worksheet on your own.

There’s a long overdue silence before the boy seated next to you turns eagerly towards you and introduces himself. “Hi, I’m Jimin and you are?”

“Y/N,” You smile politely before turning to your worksheet.

He glances over at your worksheet and scoffs. “That’s wrong,”

“What?”

“That’s wrong,” He points. “You have to use the first equation that’s written down on the board.”

Its happening again guys, All three; Camila, Lauren and Ty have basically confirmed exactly what I touched upon about the “cycle” going on in my previous post. The first day of Camila’s solo tour with Bruno Mars, Ty and Lauren attempt to confirm their relationship, once again removing and destroying any association L has with Camila/Camren. The pictures the girls took at their BEATS 1 photoshoot have been out for a few days now, so why did Ty decide to wait until C’s first show date to post a pic of L on his Instagram story captioned “❤️😍😘”. If they were romantically together, wouldn’t Ty have had access to the pictures at the same time as L? Anyway, now L’s turn. On her Instagram story, she so happened to be listening to “Love U Better” Ty’s latest single. His song was released on the 10th of July, so why has it taken L 10 DAYS to start promoting his music. After C’s performance, it seems like a pretty desperate attempt by management to confirm ‘tyren’ to me. C’s new music screams Camren. Her lyrics “half of my heart is in Havana” and the “stop playing it safe girl/sneaking in LA” all correlate to L in some way. Even asking fans to imagine they're “in Jamaica” a few weeks after L spent her birthday there with Ty. Why did she specifically mention Jamaica? She could have chosen any Island with the same Caribbean vibe, so why Jamaica? These apparent ‘leaked” pictures from a photoshoot taken few years back where both C and L look extremely comfortable with each other, so happened to be ‘released’ a few days before C goes on her first solo tour. Doesn’t this just create a certain buzz/excitement in our little camren fandom? Management know this. It is all too ironic to be a coincidence. Their behaviour is paradoxical to the narrative we as a fandom are expected to believe. 

My prediction is this: The process of attempting to fully shatter any idea of camren will continue. However, both C and L and/or management will drop a (not so) subtle hint confirming a romantic relationship between the two. I think maybe a HD leaked picture of the two is to come out (literally) along the way. As the fandom will have seen L with other people (Lucy now Ty) it will be easier for fans to accept that camren once was a thing, then to finally move on. From that, the shipping will stop and the speculation around camren can then be put to bed. The only way management can rid any trace of camren is to confirm it. There’s definitely big things coming.
