so you get literally the only thing left in my drafts

anonymous asked:

pls give us some fluffy klance headcanons i'm starving

i’m literally just.. gonna pick some stuff i saved in my drafts randomly lmao

  • the first time they properly hug, they have that classic “never letting go till someone starts coughing behind them” moment. when they realize for how much they’ve held each other, they separate at the speed of light blushing profusely
  • now that the paladins know there’s a space mall, lance is determined to ask keith on a date there, so he pretends they have to go for a mission. “soooo, coran told me we have to get something for him at the space mall and specifically said he wants you and me to go get it for him” “are you sure? i’ve talked to him 10 minutes ago and he didn’t mention anything?” “uh…yeah? he told me ‘cause i’m his favourite paladin duh!” “alright let’s go”. so once they’re there lance confesses there was no commission to do for coran he just wanted to ask him out and keith smiles fondly, takes his hand and they walk together around the shops
  • supposing lance was jealous of keith during 2x06, i want him to ask keith again about him and allura. “you know i just wanna make sure….not that i like you or anything…” “lance. you know there’s nothing between me and the princess i just wanted to see how long it would take for you to confess”
  • i’m not exactly fond of angst, but near death experience love confessions are starting to grow on me so there’s that
  • red and blue are married and therefore have a deep connection so they spill to their respective paladins what the other thinks of them and :)
  • or even better…. meeting some aliens that can read minds or something and one of them is like “the red paladin is in love with one of u” and lance *laughs nervously* “ahah it can’t be me right” keith: stares at the camera
  • i want!! more lance gushing over keith but this time keith actually hears him and does the same back. basically the next time he notices lance hanging around the hall, he brings shiro with him and starts talking about how amazing lance is and makes sure he hears him
  • lance being aware!!! of the effect his flirting has on keith to the point he flirts with him pratically everyday and keith doesn’t know if he can’t handle it and shiro has to listen to every of his love problems
  • keith being able to recognize lance’s smell. i assume he likes to put cologne and smell nice, so keith’s pining ass would probably recognize his scent even a mile away. “still no news on lance?” “he’s coming back. i can smell his perfume” “how the hell do you know that” “….. it’s a … galra thing” (it’s not)
  • keith dragging lance along his plan to help shiro and allura get together but in the process they manage to resolve their own feelings
  • once in an established relationship, i want them not only to be a power couple, but to be so proud of it they actually brag about it with the enemies they meet
  • lance coming up with the most silliest pick up lines just to make keith laugh: “are you a tv? because i would watch you all day” “lance please” “only the best pick up lines for the best boyfriend” “i’m pretty sure you’re talking about yourself then” hashtag plan backfired
  • keith struggling about finding lance a gift once he knows his bday is coming up, so he goes on a solo mission to try and find a planet that has nice flowers in it. but he doesn’t have the courage to give the bouquet to him, so he writes him a card and leaves them in front of his room’s door. “most beautiful flowers for the most beautiful boy i know” keith thinks he’s slick because lance doesn’t know his handwriting, but he actually does, so the next day lance puts a card under his door that said “thank you -L” and keith falls on the floor
  • lance was very popular in class back at the garrison because of his friendly personality and keith tells that to him one day and how much he actually wanted to be his friend and lance is like “you know….there was this guy at the garrison, he was good at many things, except talking to people. but…. i liked him anyway”
  • keith saying that he doesn’t smile often and lance retorting “you’re not that grumpy i’ve seen you smile” “what do you mean” “You know….that smile you do when your eyes are shining…. like y’all have seen right” shiro: lance i’m pretty sure you’re either imagining it or he smiles like that just at you. cue a very flustered lance leaving the room
  •  this is super overused but i love the idea of keith telling lance “I’ve already lost Shiro I can’t lose you too” and then hugging him
  • “are you a tree? because i pine for you” “lance why are you practising your pick up lines with me” “Ha..ha….of course….just…practising.”
  • if lance can surf i really want to see him teaching keith how to please beach episode i need you
  • blatant flirting!!!! without realizing that it’s flirting!!! which is basically what they do in canon but you know….basically a “everybody can tell except them” kind of situation
  • cheek kisses, because i live for them, even better if it’s something done on impulse and unexpected
  • keith watching lance proudly doing something and accidentally slipping “that’s my lance” out loud. shiro: i didn’t know you two were dating? keith: i left the stove open i gotta go
  • keith and lance have never actually referred to each other as friends and i want that this is not a romantic thing but i just need to hear them saying “he’s my friend” ya feel
  • lance meeting a very awake keith in the middle of the night and asking him what’s wrong. “trouble sleeping?” “yeah” “is it because you’ve been thinking about me? :3″ “GOODNIGHT LANCE”

ok i hope i satisfied you enough lol <3

If you had told Dex even a week ago that he would willingly be sharing a blanket with Derek Nurse on the floor of the Haus living room all afternoon, pressed together so close they’re practically in each other’s laps, he would’ve laughed in your face.

Now, he just bangs a fist against the side of the old space heater in front of them and subtly pulls Nursey a little closer into his side. Not that there’s all that much closer to pull him.

“I told them,” he mutters. “Draft fucking central.”

He not so much sees as senses Nursey roll his eyes. “Rans and Holtzy not letting you replace all the windowpanes last year is not why the heating went out, yo.”

Intellectually, Dex know this. But it’s easier to blame their former captains for their current predicament than it is to blame the fact that he’s let routine Haus maintenance slide so much this semester that they’ve ended up here. Because if Dex doesn’t keep a close eye on things like the barely functioning water heater, or the garbage disposal that’s missing two blades and is about to fall out of the sink entirely, who will?

Except, well, he’s been distracted this year. From the moment he got back from summer break and moved into the attic with Nursey, he’s been… distracted.

Nursey is distracting.

A few things about Andrew Minyard,,

- he makes other people tie his shoelaces for him
- hes a blanket monster, doesn’t even leave Neil the sheet ok, poor kid has to sleep in sweatpants and a hoodie in the winter
- secretly does a lot of research about it and only buys the best quality food for the cats
- he’s the only person in his apartment building that ever buys girls scout cookies but he always buys enough to make it worth their time stopping by, he has like 20 boxes of thin mints stashed in the freezer at all times
- he uses an electric toothbrush but it’s like a cheap ninja turtles one from target
- cooks and cleans but DOES NOT do dishes, he will literally let them pile up to the ceiling and then when there’s none left that are clean, if no one else does them, he’ll just throw them all away and go buy new ones
- (eventually they discover paper plates and plastic silverware)
- hates horror movies (not because they’re scary, it’s because they’re predictable)
- Neil is the first person (besides Andrew) to realize Andrew needs reading glasses, and he makes him get some and Andrew carries them with him all the time but only uses them when he absolutely has to
- “I dont need glasses, i dont want to see your ugly face”
- “shut up and try them on or I’m selling the car and buying a minivan.”
- he only does autographs for his kid fans
- once he gets on his pro team people (kevin and nicky) keep pushing him to dress in more colors instead of just black all the time so he gets a bunch of neon armbands and wears a different set every day,, hot pink,, lime green,, fucking yellow, obscenely bright orange,,, other than that his wardrobe doesn’t change
- learned how to sew when he was younger because none of his clothes ever fit right and he always has to make adjustments
- has a savings account that he puts money into every chance he gets and whenever neil asks about it he pulls these random excuses out of his ass (“it’s for candy”, “I’m gonna hire someone to hide your body after I kill you”, “I almost have enough to buy out Exites so that I can shut it down permanently") but it’s actually for the foxes’ kids

if you’re stressed about your grades/future: “you are young and you will take your damn time.”

A few days ago I had an emotional breakdown about my future (surprise lol.) It’s not as though this doesn’t happen daily, but it’s dawned on me that I couldn’t even discern my true desires from what my lack of self confidence was trying to feed me.

I allowed self-deprecation to get the best of me, and it turned an erroneous decision into one that seemed the most “right for my situation.” I had a plan. But I was not confident nor happy with that plan, so I fell apart. 

Parked in front of my dad’s house, I voiced the concern that–although I thought was a result of flakiness–actually stemmed from an acute source of insecurity. 

My dad then turned around and told me something that I’m positive will stay with me forever. 

“Don’t you dare feel like you have limited options based on your past mistakes. You are not limited and you will never BE limited. Don’t rule any opportunity out right now. You’re not running out of options, you just haven’t found all of them yet. You have so much power left.

I asked him what power a teen/young adult could have, and he looked at me with so much conviction and said, “Youth. You have youth, and youth itself holds so much power. You’re only 17. I wish I were 17. I wish I had that much more left in me, but I don’t. You are 17, you are young, and you will take your damn time.” 

I initially interpreted this as a projection of his own regret. But now, I interpret it as empowerment. I think about it whenever I feel completely overwhelmed by all that I have left to do. Why should I consider quitting now? I’m only 17. Many of you are also of high school, college, or graduate school age, and we have such a long way to go. We’re only so young, and compared to our parents–people who have so many decades of experience under their belt–we don’t know the half of what life has to offer us. And that’s ok, because we have so much left to experience. 

In college, I want to explore different courses. I want to find something that’s right for me, but in order to do so, I need breadth of experience rooted in thoughtful discussion and exposure to a range of things. Although I love art, I want to obtain a liberal arts education as well. And finally having said this, I realized that whatever I thought was “right” was only only a thinly veiled attempt to evade my insecurities.

Records don’t matter. Grades are trifling in the grand scheme of things. My future job is only a portion of what will comprise the best days of my life. Bad teachers, vague assignments, tough environments–I can trudge through the difficulties and I will prosper, because that’s what I can do as someone with youth on my side. This isn’t to say that someone who is older doesn’t have the same privilege. My dad wants to continue to program, and all the more power to him!

But that only exemplifies how much time we have as people who are so young. We have a leg up, and I’m certain that we need to utilize the extra time, stamina, opportunity, and youth that we have to make decisions based on our own situations–not on what other people expect of us, and certainly not according to what our stress and anxiety wants us to believe. 

(The last bit is incredibly difficult, I know. But it’s a process!) 

This isn’t to say that I’m not going to worry and stress. I will! Hell, I’m stressed right now just writing this. But I’m improving. 

Ironically, this studyblr doesn’t thrive in standardized education. This studyblr struggles not with content, but with structure. This studyblr is really nervous about the coming year. But even then, I still have so many choices that it’d be insulting of me to become my only limitation. Obstacles are not impenetrable–not when I have so much power on my side. 

I love you not. (Jimin x Reader Series)

Prologue: Lilacs

Genre: Fluff/Angst

Word Count: 3,457

Summary: “…you knew that you could never deny, despite how much you’d tried, that you’d always thought of Park Jimin as more than both he and you had labeled it all those years… Friends.”

Notes: This story was inspired by a prompt from a master prompt list and can be seen as the very first line here. Credit to that list, one of which I cannot re-find for God’s sake. This took me a while and was left in drafts for a while, but I’ve decided to finally post this. I haven’t been writing much and I’ve gone to shit due to the lack of practice :( Hope this one isn’t that shitty… So enjoy!


“Can I tell my parents that I’m at your house, just in case they get suspicious?”

“Isn’t that what you always do?”

Jimin’s laugh echoed loudly from the other end of the line. 

“True, true,” he admitted. “They trust you more than they trust me, Y/N-ah.”

“I can see why they would do that,” you sat leaned up against the window and watch as the sun cast its last golden rays before sinking into the skyline. 

“Are you saying I’m not trustworthy?”

“I’m not saying that you’re not not-trustworthy.”

“Well as the person that has kept all your secrets for as long as both of us can remember,” he breathed. “I am extremely offended.”

“Whatever, Jimin,” you sang into the receiver. “Just go have fun tonight.”

“Fine, fine,” he spoke with an exhale. “I will have fun, Miss ‘it’s-Friday-night-and-I’m-going-to-stay-in.” 

You let out a small chuckle, “That’s me.”

Jimin laughed as well, you could just imagine the grin he had plastered on his face that moment. Long seconds passed, comfortable silence filled the line, only the low static buzzing through the earpiece.

“Well,” Jimin began after a while. “I guess I’ll get going now. I’ll see you later.”

“Okay.”

Love you, Y/N.”

Same here.”

“Bye.”

“Bye.”

You removed your phone from the side of your face, knowing well that Jimin had already hung up by then. You sat still in your spot for a while, staring off into the fading sky. Even if the call had ended a long time ago, you still very much felt your heart race as if you have just run a mile. 

Having felt the same damned feeling for seventeen years straight, you would think that you have come used to it by then. But as you had always proved yourself wrong, you knew that you could never deny, despite how much you’d tried, that you’d always thought of Park Jimin as more than both he and you had labeled it all those years.

Friends.

Shance Yoga Teacher au

Yes, friends, this au is 100% what you’re thinking. FLEXIBLE AF LANCE AND THIRSTY AF SHIRO

  • Starting with a bit of angst. Shiro is an ex marine (I will NEVER let go of this hc in my modern aus deal with it), who lost his hand (hand. not entire arm. just the hand) in battle. This au isn’t far in the future, so there are no fancy advanced prosthetics. The healing process was long and painful, not to mention extremely emotionally and mentally taxing.
  • Once he he’s actually healthy enough, both mentally and physically, to have enough energy for things other than treatment, the first thing he wants to do is to try and build more muscle mass, like he used to have. He liked being buff, and he still is, but less than he used to be. Both he and his therapist think it’ll be good for strengthening his positive body image, too.
  • Shiro asks his doctor (Allura) what form of exercise can she recommend at this stage, and she says Yoga. He’s skeptical at first, but what can he already lose if he goes to one session, right?
  • The hospital actually holds a class for patients, and Allura said the instructor is well experienced with amputees (amongst other conditions).
  • Shiro’s brain for the entire first minute upon meeting Lance: OH NO HE’S HOT THIS WAS A MISTAKE
  • No backing out tho he’s already been spotted and Lance is questioning him about his exact conditions so he can know best what he can safely instruct him to do and what he can’t.
  • Shiro’s brain continues to die the entire time, but he manages some answers anyway. Finally, Lance has enough, plus the rest of the group arrives and the session starts.
  • First, there’s breathing exercises. Easy enough, right?
  • WRONG
  • Lance tells them to close their eyes, but whenever Shiro does, he the only thing he has left to focus on is Lance’s voice (which is the point) and he gets super flustered because it’s so smooth? and pleasant? and kinda sexy?? and he can’t help but want that voice to whisper to him sensually and- NOPE, gotta open his eyes.
  • The rest of the class is a little harder, for two major reasons.
  • For once, the exercises are actually more demanding than he expected. He always thought he was pretty stretchy, but heavens, is a human body even supposed to bend this far?
  • Which brings us to the next difficulty. Lance’s body is more than capable of bending that far, and it’s driving him insane.
  • Despite how stressful it was trying not to stare at his ass too much and generally not turn into a tomato, the session was actually… really great. Shiro feels better when he walks out, more relaxed somehow, even though his heart still speeds up when he remembers Lance doing that one pose.
  • Lance asks him to hang back for a moment to talk to him and Shiro is all Oh No He Noticed Me Staring but nope. Lance just wanted to ask how he feels and if anything made his arm hurt really bad etc. He also excessively complimented his natural flexibility, saying he’ll be able to do “all sorts of things” soon enough. Shiro is really unsure, but it almost seems like Lance smirked while saying that? Nah, he must be just imagining things because of his developing crush.
  • The next few sessions aren’t very different. Supposedly, anyway. After basing his level and current capabilities, Lance decided that Shiro could use more personal guidance, including LOTS of touching to correct his pose. Lance, being a professional, always asks for permission to touch him first, which somehow only makes it that much worse, because Shiro wants Lance to touch him. So so bad. Shiro is literally dying. These pants are tight and they will not hide a boner. He’s suffering. Someone help him.
  • There’s no help, and Poor Shiro has to constantly deal with gentle touches and low purrs because god forbid anyone makes a loud noise in the middle of yoga class. It goes on for a couple of weeks until one day he gets a most peculiar text from Lance.
  • (They exchanged numbers because Shiro wanted to add a third yoga session to his weekly schedule but the hospital only held the classes twice a week, and Lance gives him his number in case he has any questions. Of course, barely any Yoga advice was exchanged. )
  • Lance’s text: Uggghhh I can’t do this anymore! Allura, I know he’s your patient and all and he’s “”“"healing”“”“ and stuff but I can’t hold back anymore I just can’t. He’s too hot. I know I promised to hold back BUT THIS IS IT I’M ASKING HIM OUT
  • Shaking, Shiro texts back, asking who Lance is talking about.
  • Lance doesn’t text back for like half an hour and Shiro starts seriously freaking out when he gets a long ass text from Lance, where he apologizes for being so unprofessional and confessing his crush etc.
  • Shiro could almost cry from relief, because a few minutes ago he thought he might’ve lost all chances with Lance but now… He has more than a slight chance. He calls Lance and confesses his own crush and they both laugh and maybe it’s a little awkward because what do you even say in a situation like this but eventually they manage to schedule a date.
  • They take it slow, let things develop naturally. Lance gives Shiro all the time and space he needs, since it’s the first time he’s tried dating since he lost his hand. Takes a little trial and error, but one day, a few months later, Shiro finds out just how far Lance can bend.
Moving to A New Home

Moving to a new home can be daunting and complicated at times, especially if it’s something you’re doing on your own. I promise that no matter how stressful it may seem, this process will become exciting and invigorating for you to conquer. Regardless as to whether you’re moving across state lines or to a new country, the adventure begins now! I hope this helps babes.

Before You Move

1. List it up. Make a list of everything that you will need to accomplish before you are ready to move. This includes items that need to be packed, people that need to be contacted, pet accommodations, etc. I love lists, but you may not, so use any organizational technique that works for you.

2. Divide and conquer. After you’ve made your list, organize items based off of how much time they’ll take you. Packing will be fairly time-consuming, so this is something you’ll want to invite friends over for and break up over several days. I like to have “moving” parties whenever I’m getting ready to move, essentially I buy some chips and dip, play some Trap, and invite my friends over to act as my minions. Something like canceling your subscription to Cosmo will take you very little time and energy to do, so it’s something you can do when you’re ready for a stress-free activity.

3. Contact companies. Speaking of canceling your Cosmo subscription, you will need to update your address with all of the companies you use. If you’re no longer going to be using that company, you’ll need to call them and tell them when to end your service. If you’re going to continue to using that company, you’ll have to call them and tell that you’ll need an address change. Give them the exact date you’ll be moving so that they can backdate your information. Some examples of companies:

  • DMV in the county you’re moving to (if you’re going to drive)
  • Your doctor’s office
  • Your college (even if you graduated, they send out alumni letters all the time)
  • Your credit/debit card company
  • Your bank
  • Your phone company
  • Any government programs you’re a part of
  • Any companies that you have loans with
  • Your health insurance company
  • Your auto insurance company
  • Amazon

4. Set up. Nobody likes living without internet in this modern age, so make sure to call your internet/cable provider for your new home and setup an installation date ahead of time. Do the same for your electric company, although they will probably be able to activate your electricity remotely.

5. Send ahead. If possible, send/drop off some of your items ahead of time. If you have a family member or a friend that lives nearby where you’ll be staying, ask if they can hold a few boxes for you. You can also mail yourself packages and ask your local post office to hold them for you, but you’ll need to arrange that ahead of time.

6. Forwarding address. You will inevitably forget something, so make sure to leave your forwarding address and contact information with your landlord, college, ex-roommate, etc.

During Moving

1. Take your time. Don’t try to unpack everything in one day! Take some time to explore your new space, and decide where to put everything in a leisurely way. There is no set schedule for moving.

2. Assistance. If you have friends/family helping you make the move, assign them specific tasks so that nobody spends their time pestering you and asking “what do you need help with?”. You can even decide these tasks ahead of time, during your plane or car ride over.

3. Be neighborly. You’ll likely meet some neighbors during this process, and make sure to stop and greet them, even if you’re in the middle of something. First impressions do matter, even when they shouldn’t, and spending thirty seconds to greet someone in a parking lot may save you a lot of hardship in the long run. Ask your neighbors to recommend local attractions, places to eat, what laundromats to use, etc.

4. Check everything. Walk around your new home and make sure that everything is as it should be. Make sure all the light switches work, all the doors open, that the cabinets are empty, that everything has been cleaned properly, etc. Address anything that is not right immediately in a letter to your new landlord. 

After You’re Settled (Specifically for Living Alone)

1. PKW. Phone, keys, wallet. Every time you go anywhere. Check twice. The worst part of living on your own is having to rely on yourself to never forget to lock yourself out or leave your wallet at a sandwich shop in a mall. Make absolutely sure you have duplicates of your keys (I would get a couple made) and give one to a friend who lives nearby who you can count on. I also like to keep an extra set inside the apartment itself in a secure place, just in case. Your landlord can let you in during office hours, but giving a key to a trustworthy friend helps you 24/7.

2. Cleaning routine. You don’t have to sit down at a writing desk and draft this out, but spend a few minutes coming up with a basic cleaning regime for you to follow. It’s definitely easier to do a little each day, but if that doesn’t work for your schedule set aside at least an hour and a half during your time off to get your apartment spotless. I don’t know about you, but whenever I deep clean my apartment I feel like I’m living in a hotel for a day, and I absolutely love it.

3. Make a “moving” shopping list. This is everything you will need (minus food) for your first week at your new place. Do a big shop, and get all the essentials out of the way: first aid kit, cleaning supplies, tape, cat food, etc. Your first week moving into your new place will be stressful enough, you don’t want to be halfway through setting up your living room and realize that you forgot to buy trash bags.

4. Secure yourself. I’m not the most agile or fast person in the world, and I do live in a mid-sized city that has a good deal of crime. The apartment complex I live in is very safe, but I still like to double lock my front door at night. It might be smart to keep some pepper spray or a baseball bat somewhere in your apartment, just in case.

5. Stay social. Even the most anti-social person gets lonely. Make sure to hang out with your friends, not just your co-workers, your actual friends. Get out off your apartment every few days and go see a movie, get a cup of coffee, go people watching at the park, etc. It’s easy to get depressed if you’re living alone and doing the same things the same way every day- allow yourself to mix it up.

6. Meal prep. It can be stressful and seem useless to cook complicated or “fancy” meals when you’re living on your own. Plan your meals for the week and make a list before going shopping. Get yourself enough food to make a variety of dinners that will only take you fifteen minutes. If you do want to go crazy and make steak and mashed potatoes for yourself, make enough for two meals. Also, nobody is going to think poorly of you for stocking your fridge with a couple frozen dinners.

7. Customer service. Living alone means that you are going to be doing a lot of talking to customer service representatives. Get comfortable talking to people over the phone. Tell the rep what you need as quickly as you can, and try to be polite because customer service at a phone center is a garbage job that doesn’t pay well. On the flip side, don’t be afraid to ask for a manager if you’re upset or unhappy with your service. Take their survey at the end of your phone call, tell them how unhappy you are. It’s someone’s shitty job to look at all those surveys, no complaint goes unheard. Companies with great phone service: Verizon, Apple, Amazon. Companies with awful phone service: USPS (literally the worst), electric companies, health insurance companies.

8. Guest space. This is not required, but it’s a good idea to have some sort of space for a friend to stay the night. A friend of mine had a bad breakup, showed up at my apartment with ten minute’s notice, and then fell asleep on my couch after an hour of crying. It as 7:30! Whatever, she needed it. Keep an extra blanket and pillow in your closet, I like to keep travel sized shampoos and conditioners in my bathroom cabinet on the off chance a guest wants to use my shower. I got these at a hotel for free, but they’re available at CVS and other pharmacies.

9. Toilet paper. Don’t let yourself run out of toilet paper! I like to buy more when I notice I only have one roll left. The same deal goes for paper towels.

10. Enjoy. Living on your own is simoltaneously exciting and exhausting, but an all around must-have experience. Enjoy the freedom to forget to make the bed, to decorate your bathroom however you want, to have ice cream for dinner, to watch reruns of Friends and cry when Rachel decides to move to France. Make sure to give yourself lots of space to move at your own pace, but please remember to eat three meals a day and to go to the doctor’s for a checkup at least once a year!

Making Friends and Staying Social

First things first- we as humans are social creatures. We seek out social interaction, even the most antisocial person in the world still needs the occasional stimulating conversation. Don’t stress about making friends, it’ll happen one way or another.

The best friendships are created organically, but that said, there are some things you can do to quicken the process.

1. Friends by proximity.  Be social and inquisitive when meeting your new co-workers and that openness will help you create fast friendships. Ask lots of questions, people love it when you ask them lots of questions about things. Remember elementary school? Remember how easy it was to make friends then? You’ve got this.

2. Places. Hang out at places that you would normally hang out with your friends. Scope out cool bookstores and cozy coffeeshops, and be on the lookout for similar-minded people. Find reasons to talk to these strangers, whether that means asking them for directions, what they’re drinking, etc. The next time you run into them, you’ll be able to start up a conversation.

3. Events. One of the quickest ways to make lots of new friends is to join a group that meets weekly that does something that’s important to you. This could be anything from a book club, to a Dungeons and Dragons game, to volunteer work. Go to your local library and read the bulletin board looking for groups that interest you. You may have to get on the internet to find something close by. At the very least you’ll have a weekly social event to go to where you won’t feel out of place.

4. Neighborly. This next one depends on you, but if you have cool looking new neighbors introduce yourselves to them. Hit them up at random and say something casual like “I was going to go out for a drink, wanna join?” Planning things in advance puts pressure on acquaintances, so try to be spontaneous.

Hi :] I followed you recently, and I'm glad I did. I like your Bucky cuddle drabbles, and I think you're really talented. If it's not too much trouble, could you maybe do a headcannon for dating pre-serum Steve? Thanks 💜

Thank you, love! You’re too sweet @sarahwroteathing for being an angel and always helping me with everything.)

Dating pre-serum Steve

It started off a little weird. Steve’s been your best friend since you met him. But he was laughing really hard at something you said–so hard he had tears in his eyes. Something bubbled up in you, and you leaned in real close and stole a quick kiss from his plush lips.

Third First Kiss [Plance, VLD oneshot]

@sparklingpidge i try 

Also I didn’t realize there was a @planceday blog but here’s a belated Plance Day thing! Unedited, because I am always tired. 

Lance has always liked threes. Three sides to his favorite comfort food (pizza); three younger siblings (Rosalyn, Alonzo, Isabel); three syllables in his mother’s name (Elisa); three words in a phrase he kept out of sight but in reach (you know, just in case).

So, he guesses, when it comes to his first kiss with Pidge, he’s not all that surprised it happens three times.

 The first time is by accident.

 He’s down in the labs, gracing Pidge with his ever-helpful presence (he’d been bored, and he liked the quiet stimulation of the lab - the soft whirs and blinking light and Pidge’s constant ramblings; Pidge had told him she liked having a second pair of eyes when she worked on the ship’s hardware, and that Hunk was “too linear”, whatever that meant). She waves Lance over to peer into the narrow opening of some kind of electrical panel and see if he could spot a specific wire. It’s a task he’d managed for her countless times before, and the press of the crown of her head against his as she, too, tries to get a better look, is perfectly familiar.

 He spots it, like he always does, and she socks him in the arm in appreciation, like she always does, and they lift their heads in unison.

 His nose brushes hers. Her bangs fall over her eyes and tickle his skin. Their lips meet like tangent and curve; the barest of intersections, a beat before peeling away.

They jump back from the panel and each other. They don’t make it awkward. It’s awkward but they don’t make it that way. No one laughs it off or tries to explain it away; Pidge just picks back up with whatever she’d been talking about before (he suddenly can’t remember the topic, and struggles to follow her high, tight words over the pounding of his heart), and he nods along and eventually cracks a joke about something. Lance saunters out of the lab a few doboshes later, claiming a need to get into the bathroom and wash his face before Hunk used up all the hot water. Pidge nods and doesn’t comment on the fact that there were multiple bathrooms, and the castle never ran out of hot water.

It burns at him. All night, thoughts lick at the edge of a mind desperate for sleep, replaying that single moment over, and over, and over again until it consumes him. He burns with the memory of how quickly that accidental kiss was over; he smolders with the realization that he wants it to happen again.

 The second time is out of desperation.

They’re infiltrating another Galra base in what feels like an endless stream of Galra bases. Seriously, they knocked out one, like, twice a week. Shiro’s got Pidge and Lance on control station duty. Pidge hacks into the system, Lance sharpshooters the hell out of some sentries. Easy peasy.

 Things are going great right up until the point where they’re not: Lance takes out a sentry way on the far end of the hall, and is indulging in his customary gloating to Pidge, when a Galra soldier drops down from a cliché and totally unseen air vent, whips around, and rams some sort of pulsing, electric baton into Lance’s chest. It goes bright, and then it goes dark.

 Lance wakes up with a sputter and a gasp, like he’s broken the surface of the ocean long after he should have come up for air. A weight springs off of his chest, but whatever had been pounding away at his ribs has left everything soar. His lips are warm.

 Eyes sliding open, he’s met with a tangle of brown hair that hovers a few millimeters above his face. Lance goes cross-eyed as he stares down and sees a hand pinching his nose shut. He sees a reddened cheek and a furrowed brow, and then he sees a mouth bracketing his. Each part seems incomplete, the observation of each individual tree and a an utter missing of the forest.

 Then the lips leave his, and cool air hits his face. The picture comes together, and the picture is Pidge, leaning over him, face mottled with worry, fingers still holding his nose.

“You’re okay,” she breathes. The hard lines on her face start to soften. “You’re an idiot,” she continues, “but you’re okay.”

 *It’s not my fault that guy came from the ceiling,* he tries to say, but it comes out as a painful wheeze instead. Pidge realizes where her other hand is and unplugs his nose.

 “Pidge, is Lance okay?” Shiro’s voice echoes from some distant place. “Hunk is bringing the Yellow Lion in closer, but we’ve got to move fast.”

Pidge calls back in the affirmative, and Lance even manages to raise a shaky thumbs up.

“Here we go,” she says, voice so low that only Lance could possibly hear it. “I’ve got to carry your ass around again.”

But there’s zero actual malice in her words, and she darts back down and presses her lips to his so fast that he almost thinks he’s imagining it. Maybe it’s the lack of oxygen, or the fact that his heart literally stopped, but he’s pretty sure Pidge’s cheeks run pink as she slips an arm under his shoulder and helps Shiro hoist him up, just like Lance is pretty sure that last lip contact was *not* a traditional step in performing CPR.

Lance thinks of her as the healing pod lulls him into a medically-induced sleep. She’s the first thing on his mind when he wakes up.

The third time is intentional. Or, at least, he hopes it will be. Lance hasn’t actually worked up the nerve, even though he wants nothing more than to wrap his arms around her and pull her to him. Pidge is so, so close, which doesn’t make anything easier.

It’s video game night. They have one every Friday, or, well, what they’ve designated at Friday, since is impossible to really tell on the ship. Normally the whole team pile into the lounge for a raucous, tournament-style Earth game throwdown, but tonight, it’s just him and Pidge. Keith and Hunk had a meeting with the Blade of Marmora that just couldn’t be rescheduled, and Allura, Shiro, and Coran were working late to draft a treatise for a recently liberated system. Allura had offered a seat at the table if Lance and Pidge wanted to join in the ‘vital act of diplomacy’. They’d offered a hard pass in return.

There’s nothing unusual about the banter that flies between them, or even the way Pidge careens half into his lap as she leans hard with her controller, insisting that it really did make the car on the screen turn better. The tension though, that was different. No matter how casually he tried to act, every word sounds a little stilted, a bit off, and maybe it’s just him but it seems like Pidge feels it too. It gets thicker the longer the game goes on.

Lance has been thinking about this for quintants. He’s been losing precious, irreplaceable beauty sleep over it. With a long exhale and a nod, Lance jabs the pause button on the controller.

“Lance, what the quiz-”

“I want to kiss you.”

It takes every ounce of will in his body not to groan. That’s not what he’d practiced saying. He was supposed to be suave, and charming, and not sounding like he was about to choke on his own tongue. Lance hazards a glance at Pidge. Her eyebrows do an impressive climb towards her hairline and her lips part.

He’s got about a zillion things he could say to try and make this better, clean it up or make it a joke. Instead, he just turns to stare at her and hopes whatever answer she comes up with won’t be washed out by the sound of his heartbeat in his ears.

“But you've… already kissed me? We’ve done that?” she says slowly.

Okay. Not the worst answer, though not as 'head over heels in love’ as he was hoping for. But encouraging enough for the next thing that comes out of his mouth:

“I want to kiss you again.”

Pidge straightens next to him on the couch, and tucks her hands in her lap. “Really.”

Lance puts a hand on her shoulder and turns her gently to face him. Nothing but his pride to lose. And, well, maybe her, but he doesn’t let himself dwell on that any more than he already has.

“Reallly really. Pidge, I want to kiss you again,” he declares. “I want to get our third first kiss out of the way, so that we can start on our second kiss and cross that off the list too, and so on, and so forth.”

Pidge raises an eyebrow, but she hasn’t tried to pull away. That’s a good sign, right?

“Our third first-?” she cuts herself off, lets out a short huff, and leans in. Reaching up, she cups his face in her hands and plants her lips on his.

It might be their third first kiss, but it feels like something altogether new: with a kiss this slow and deliberate, Lance can drink in every detail. Pidge’s lips are chapped but warm, and grow pliant as his mouth moves against hers. Her hands sink from his face down to his chest. Her eyes flutter shut, and so do his.

The kiss is chaste but deep, the kind that leaves him needing more of her, and closer. They break for air, and instead of some smart comment, Lance just rests his hands on her hips and pulls her into his lap. She comes with no protest, wrapping her arms around her neck and diving back in for another kiss - their second, if he’s counting right.

 Lance has always liked threes, but past the second kiss he loses track. The numbers blend, and suddenly, it seems so much less important how many times he’s kissed Pidge, as the fact that he’s even kissing Pidge in the first place. All that matters, he decides, is that he can keep kissing her for a long, long, long time after.

exbeaut  asked:

i'm so scared to live alone.... any tips?

You know I do! Living alone is a really intense and exciting experience, offering you the chance to explore your independence. It may seem daunting at first because you’re solely responsible for taking care of all your shopping, cleaning, and home related maintenance. But if you go into this experience prepared and confident, you’ll do fine- you’ll flourish!

Living alone is definitely not for everybody, especially if you’re an extraverted or super social person. In this case, you may want to buddy up with a friend and look into two bedroom apartments. Ask yourself- will you be okay spending a day on your own without interacting face-to-face with anybody? If the answer is no, you should find a roommate. 

Check out this post which details how to locate, inspect, and set up your first apartment. And…

Living Alone

1. PKW. Phone, keys, wallet. Every time you go anywhere. Check twice. The worst part of living on your own is having to rely on yourself to never forget to lock yourself out or leave your wallet at a sandwich shop in a mall. Make absolutely sure you have duplicates of your keys (I would get a couple made) and give one to a friend who lives nearby who you can count on. I also like to keep an extra set inside the apartment itself in a secure place, just in case. Your landlord can let you in during office hours, but giving a key to a trustworthy friend helps you 24/7.

2. Cleaning routine. You don’t have to sit down at a writing desk and draft this out, but spend a few minutes coming up with a basic cleaning regime for you to follow. It’s definitely easier to do a little each day, but if that doesn’t work for your schedule set aside at least an hour and a half during your time off to get your apartment spotless. I don’t know about you, but whenever I deep clean my apartment I feel like I’m living in a hotel for a day, and I absolutely love it.

3. Make a “moving” shopping list. This is everything you will need (minus food) for your first week at your new place. First aid kit, cleaning supplies, tape, cat food, etc. Your first week moving into your new place will be stressful enough, you don’t want to be halfway through setting up your living room and realize that you forgot to buy trash bags.

4. Secure yourself. I’m not the most agile or fast person in the world, and I do live in a mid-sized city that has a good deal of crime. The apartment complex I live in is very safe, but I still like to double lock my front door at night. It might be smart to keep some pepper spray or a baseball bat somewhere in your apartment, just in case.

5. Stay social. Even the most anti-social person gets lonely. Make sure to hang out with your friends, not just your co-workers, your actual friends. Get out off your apartment every few days and go see a movie, get a cup of coffee, go people watching at the park, etc. It’s easy to get depressed if you’re living alone and doing the same things the same way every day- allow yourself to mix it up.

6. Meal prep. It can be stressful and seem useless to cook complicated or “fancy” meals when you’re living on your own. Plan your meals for the week and make a list before going shopping. Get yourself enough food to make a variety of dinners that will only take you fifteen minutes. If you do want to go crazy and make steak and mashed potatoes for yourself, make enough for two meals. Also, nobody is going to think poorly of you for stocking your fridge with a couple frozen dinners.

7. Customer service. Living alone means that you are going to be doing a lot of talking to customer service representatives. Get comfortable talking to people over the phone. Tell the rep what you need as quickly as you can, and try to be polite because customer service at a phone center is a garbage job that doesn’t pay well. On the flip side, don’t be afraid to ask for a manager if you’re upset or unhappy with your service. Take their survey at the end of your phone call, tell them how unhappy you are. It’s someone’s shitty job to look at all those surveys, no complaint goes unheard. Companies with great phone service: Verizon, Apple, Amazon. Companies with awful phone service: USPS (literally the worst), electric companies, health insurance companies.

8. Guest space. This is not required, but it’s a good idea to have some sort of space for a friend to stay the night. A friend of mine had a bad breakup, showed up at my apartment with ten minute’s notice, and then fell asleep on my couch after an hour of crying. It as 7:30! Whatever, she needed it. Keep an extra blanket and pillow in your closet, I like to keep travel sized shampoos and conditioners in my bathroom cabinet on the off chance a guest wants to use my shower. I got these at a hotel for free, but they’re available at CVS and other pharmacies.

9. Toilet paper. Don’t let yourself run out of toilet paper! I like to buy more when I notice I only have one roll left. The same deal goes for paper towels.

10. Enjoy. Living on your own is simoltaneously exciting and exhausting, but an all around must-have experience. Enjoy the freedom to forget to make the bed, to decorate your bathroom however you want, to have ice cream for dinner, to watch reruns of Friends and cry when Rachel decides to move to France. Make sure to give yourself lots of space to move at your own pace, but please remember to eat three meals a day and to go to the doctor’s for a checkup at least once a year!

So I’m writing this in the wake of the new interviews we got at Anime Midwest, specifically Otsuka-san’s words on Victor and Yuuri’s relationship and the ensuing salt by antis. What boggles my mind is that people who so desperately cling to the idea that Victor and Yuuri are just in a “strong platonic friendship” are now not only disregarding canon context but also actual words from the creators of the show themselves.

I just want to start out by saying that we shouldn’t even be having this discussion. I am 100% certain that if Victor and Yuuri were a heterosexual couple there would be no controversy at all. No one would have to sit here and argue the validity of their romantic relationship—we would all have automatically assumed it from the get-go. If Victuuri were a heterosexual couple we would all be under the assumption that they were romantically involved already without half the things we actually got to see between them on the show.

How many times have we all seen movies or shows that start out with a female character and a male character at the very beginning and have thought “okay they’re going to end up together” (unless they’re related, one of them dies, etc)? A lot—even if we aren’t always conscious of it. It’s a common conclusion we all make and directors of such movies and shows rely on this assumption as they weave the romance. And almost always, these assumptions are correct. “He was a boy, she was a girl. Can I make it any more obvious?” Avril Lavigne said in her infinite wisdom once.

We even see this very trope subversion in episode one, with Yuuko. When we as an audience are first introduced to her character, we’re done so under the guise of Yuuri having a long-standing crush on her. She’s his childhood friend, the girl next door, etc. It’s natural for us to assume that he’s in love with her and that his narrative will probably revolve around those feelings. It’s natural because we’ve been conditioned this way. And then at the critical moment, when we think Yuuri is literally about to confess his feeling for Yuuko, our expectations are smashed when we find out that she’s happily married with three children. Some antis even still cling to Yuuri’s past feelings for Yuuko as proof that she’s somehow Yuuri’s true love interest and this is hilariously reach-y. Yuuko is so far removed from the realm of possibility for being Yuuri’s love interest that it’s comical—and purposefully so. The same time that we’re presented with Yuuko as possible love interested, we are also introduced to Victor. Victor, who is shown as being Yuuri’s ultimate inspiration and who Yuuri’s narrative ACTUALLY revolves around. (Similarly, Victor’s narrative revolves around Yuuri, as we’re shown in episode 10.) This is not a coincidence. We are shown this here, in this manner, for a reason—and not only because Yuuko is the one who introduced Yuuri to the wonder that was Victor. This is storytelling.

Throughout the series we’ve been bombarded with clear evidence for Yuuri and Victor’s romantic attraction towards each other. And unlike in many other shows where these are played off as jokes, these moments are taken rather seriously. Even when presented in a funny light (such as the “naked hug” scene in episode 6), they’re not jokes. They’re actual moments that happen between Yuuri and Victor and are either proof of their romantic interest in each other or serve to deepen their relationship in that regard. A lot has already been said on this matter, however, so I’ll move on.

What I really, really want to address is the fact that antis are taking the “soulmate” thing and either twisting it or refusing to see both sides of the picture. Kubo and Sayo (along with other staff) have said that Yuuri and Victor are soulmates and that their relationship goes beyond conventional labels. This is a beautiful notion—the idea that their love, in all its forms, is transcendent. That their bond is so strong and unshakable. And we even have confirmation that the reason Yuuri and Victor are now together in St. Petersburg is because they cannot bear to be apart.

So let me deviate a little here by saying sure, yes: there can be “platonic friendships” which are very strong and it’s important that such friendships are portrayed well in media. It’s vital that people understand that friendships can be just significant as romantic relationships. However Yuri!!! on ICE is not setting out to do that, nor should it have to. We now know very clearly that Sayo’s intent for Victor and Yuuri’s relationship is distinctly romantic. The show itself pulls no punches on this matter. There is no room left for self-interpretation.

What I’m trying to say is that when we get a heterosexual couple, we assume romance first and friendship second. But when we get a homosexual couple, we assume friendship first and romance second. I don’t intend to sit here and say how unfair this is—how it forces same-sex couples to go through various hurdles that het couples don’t have to bother with in order to prove the status of their relationship. That’s a topic that’s already been discussed at length but I want all antis to take a step back and realize that this may be one reason why they’re still clinging onto the “they’re just friends” rationale.

Now going back to the soulmate thing. Yes, soulmates can be platonic, but why are they not allowed to also be romantic? Antis seem to cling to the snippet of their relationship going beyond labels and somehow try to weaponize this as evidence of them only being close friends. But “going beyond labels” and “being soulmates” is not automatically exclusionary. It’s inclusive of all forms of love, including romantic and sexual.

This is getting long enough so let me just end by saying I know a lot of people aren’t trying to downplay their relationship for any homophobic reasons but are actually just afraid of being queerbaited. And thus these people are wary of any representation until and unless it’s absolute representation. This is understandable and honestly for a long time, I was afraid too. But now we have confirmation from the creators that yes, Yuuri and Victor’s relationship was always meant to be a romance and also that the staff now understands that ambiguity in this case is not what people want. They’ve listened to us and now it’s time that we trust what they’ve been saying as well.

I implore all antis to ask themselves why they’re so intent on ignoring canon evidence and now actual interviews from creators on the matter in order to downplay Victor and Yuuri’s relationship. Please, just stop and think. If you’re so dead-set on thinking that they’re just friends then, fam, maybe this isn’t the right show or fandom for you. Life is short. Go away.

part two of my magical royal bangtan au!!! thanks to everyone who said they wanted to read more of it,,,,,,im blessed!!!!! (here) is part one, id suggest reading it first so you get the jist of the story !!~~~

  • so you’re the oracle who is going to foretell if there will be a war between your kingdom and it’s rival kingdom 
  • and wizard yoongi drops you off (well,,,,,,,i mean he gets paid for finding you so you could consider it as you being delivered but like,,,,,let’s just not get into that ,,,,,,,) to the three princes: jin, jimin, and jungkook
  • and they’re like you have to marry one of us because the act of marriage will help you see the future and what we should do in order to beat the rival kingdom 
  • and it’s like you have to do it for the sake of your kingdom and country but you turn to yoongi and you’re like “i don’t really wan-” but he’s like “you gotta.” 
  • and so on your first day,,,,,,,,,,in the palace,,,,,,,,you’re surprised when servants are at your bedside when you wake up and people are giving you these garments to wear that look like they could pay for your parents taxes for the next 4 years???? and your breakfast options are literally a whole table of imported coffee, truffles, fruits, you name it??????
  • and it’s all too much to handle and prince jimin is kind enough to try and shoo off some of the staff because all these people and all these questions is visibly making you uncomfortable
  • and the prince is like “i know it’s hard,,,,,,,,but,,,,,,,,,,,please,,,,,,,” and you’re like “i don’t understand whats going on? i don’t even know IF im the oracle!!! why can’t you three just discuss peace options with the other kingdom”
  • and jimin is like “we wish we could, but ever since,,,,,,,,,,,an incident in our past,,,,,,,,,”
  • and you’re like ?????? and jimin sighs and looks around and is like “come with me, you can’t tell prince jin i told you about this or else he’ll nag my ear off!”
  • and so you follow prince jimin into the library and up a spiral staircase until you’re down some dusty aisle of expensive looking leather-bound books
  • and jimin is like “last year, we were drafting up a peace treaty with the other kingdom. the three sons of that kingdom, namjoon, taehyung and hoseok, had always been in competition with us because,,,,,,,well we’re princes it’s our job to try and up-one each other for the sake of our countries glory,,,,,but finally our parents wanted to put that behind us. unfortunately,,,,,,,,,,”
  • jimin trails off but you’re like “unfortunately????” and jimin sighs and he’s like “unfortunately,,,,,the conference was disrupted by some kind of ambush attack. we believe it was a wizard, but we aren’t sure. they flew in on their broom and had went straight for the other kingdom’s king with a sword, but prince taehyung had blocked it and well,,,,,,,,,,,,he managed to protect his father but,,,,,,,,,,got scarred in the struggle. the scar runs across his left eye and well after that,,,,,,,,the brothers blamed up on hiring the wizard even though we didn’t and now we expect that??? they’re going to wage a war-”
  • jimin doesn’t get to finish because you both hear the huge door open and jin’s voice call out from the floor below
  • jimin pulls you alongside him and is like “oh, we were just talking brother!!! i was showing them all the books you and father have collected - we’ll come down!!!!”
  • but the whole time you’re walking with them back to the dining hall you can’t help but think about those other three brothers,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,taehyung?,,,,,,,,,,hoseok,,,,,,,,,,and namjoon,,,,,,,,,

–> Namjoon

  • is the only brother who doesn’t actually bare a grudge against the other kingdom. he’s way more interested in putting effort into bettering his own country 
  • enjoys political discussions with older officials and meets up with professors at the local universities and famous writers and always has a notebook to jot notes down
  • wears glasses when he isn’t at formal events and all the servants think he looks really cute in them but no one dares to tell him because his resting face is really serious and they aren’t sure how to read his emotions
  • tripped over a billion dollar ancient statue once
  • you see him at the first ever meeting the two kingdoms hold because even if there might be a war there is things like trading and country barriers that have to be discussed and namjoon, being the most level-headed of the three is always sent to talk to jin
  • and you’re not supposed to be eavesdropping on their conversation but you really REALLY wanna see this brother from the other kingdom to learn more about them
  • but the problem is namjoon gets up halfway through the mediation and ends up walking down the halls to the bathroom and you’re like ok ok hide,,,,,,but you make a bunch of noise and namjoon stops in his tracks and you’re like shIT from where you’re standing behind the plant
  • and you think it’s ok,,,,,he won’t find me
  • but then you hear a deep voice go “hey” and you’re like OH GOD
  • and you get so scared you turn to fast and knock the whole plant over and you’re like scurrying to try and get it back up but there’s dirt everywhere and namjoon is watching you and is like “,,,,,,,um are you? a servant?”
  • but then he sees what you’re wearing and he’s like “wait,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,are you the oracle?” 
  • and you stand up straight and put your hands up and you’re like nO NO NO 
  • but it’s obvious he doesn’t believe you and he’s like “is it true? you can predict the future?” and you’re like nO I CANT I DONT KNOW UH
  • and namjoon looks so fascinated and he’s like “i need to know more,,,,,”
  • and you’re like “i ????? don’t know?????? isn’t jin - prince jin - waiting for you????”
  • and namjoon is like right right,,,,,,,,,,
  • and you think that’s the last you’ll see of him but you overhear at the dinner table that namjoon is staying in the palace since jin still needs to speak with him for some more time and jungkook makes a face but jin is like bEHAVE
  • and the worse, more curious part of you decides to see if it’s true - if he’s really staying here
  • and it is. you find him exactly where you expect,,,,,,,,,in the astronomy tower that’s barely ever visited and you want to just walk away but you ,,,,, can’t for some reason
  • and you’re like “um - hi we met before-” and namjoon basically runs down the steps to you and he’s like “the oracle!!!!!!! amazing, i knew wizards and magical beings still existed but -”
  • and he touches your wrist and lifts it up to examine it and you’re like erm what are you doing
  • and he’s like sorry, ive never met someone whose blood is laced with magic and you’re like ??????/
  • but you think he’s,,,,,,,,,,interesting and he doesn’t seem at all interested in the war like everyone else and you talk get to talking and you tell namjoon of your dreams and prophecies
  • and he’s like amazed by you
  • and namjoon ends up staying for a week and a half him and jin have to go over so much and every night you met in the tower and talk
  • and when he has to go,,,,,,,,,you ask if you’ll see him again and he’s like i don’t think i can come back here for a while,,,,,,,,,but when the wedding happens -
  • and you look down because,,,,,,,you don’t want the wedding to happen
  • and namjoon can see this clearly on your face
  • which immediately makes his heart turn and suddenly he’s getting marching back inside to where jin and the others are and he’s like “you know, you don’t need the oracle to be married to let them have their vision.” 
  • and jin is like “what? how do you know-” and namjoon puts a hand around you and you’re like !!!!!!! and the other three are like “GUAR-”
  • but namjoon is like “you’re saying the ‘power’ of marriage is enough but there is no power in marriage. maybe,,,,,maybe a kiss will be enough,,,,,”
  • and everyone is shocked and namjoon turns to you and he’s like “it’s science, romantic physically gestures,,,,,,,,,increase endorphin’s,,,,,,,so,,,,,,,”
  • and you, who totally doesn’t wanna get married, reaches up to hold his face and bring your lips to his,,,,,,,,,and it’s like an electricity runs through you
  • and you can see the vision, the vision of peace - the vision of jin and namjoon laughing alongside each other and you excitedly pull back and exclaim there won’t be any war!!!!1
  • while namjoon needs to adjust his glasses and still his heart because WOAH you’re a good kisser

–> Taehyung

  • is the most apprehensive about your kingdom because of what happened to his eye,,,,,,,,,for a while he covered it up with a patch but recently he’s taken to not wearing it just because hoseok has convinced him it doesn’t make him look bad,,,,,,,,,,it makes him look really strong
  • and everyone in his country respects him for taking care of the king so well
  • and taehyung,,,,,,,,,,,,,,has another reason for his animosity and it’s because magic,,,,,in the modern world has been looked down apart. a wizard is even the one who is said to have been the one attack his father that day,,,,,,,but taehyung,,,,has magic in his blood
  • he isn’t sure what to trace it back to,,,,,but he can speak with animals. he’s been able to do it since he was a child and was first taught to horseback ride,,,,he could literally speak to his horse and everyone thought he just had a gift for the sport, but no,,,,,,he just knew what the horse was thinking and could tell it what he wanted
  • and you meet taehyung through animals because as you’re sitting in room you hear something tapping at the window and once you open it a dove flies in
  • and in its beak is what looks like a letter and when you open it,,,,,,,,,,still shellshocked that you got ,,,,,,,this letter by literal carrier dove
  • you see the words ‘are you the oracle?’ and you’re like ???? w- what is this
  • and you think about showing it to the princes, so they know someone else knows you’re here. but then you think,,,,,what if this is someone seeking help,,,,,,,,,or maybe someone seeking to help you 
  • because you really don’t want to get married, you’re still young!
  • so you take the risk and write back ‘yes. who is asking’ and giving it back to the bird who takes off back to the skies
  • and the next day in the afternoon, she’s back with a new letter and this one says ‘im from the other kingdom. are they using you to see if there will be a war? they don’t have to do that. there will be war for what they did to us.’
  • and you suddenly get a feeling in the pit of your stomach that maybe you shouldn’t have replied to the letter so you just crumple this one up and throw it away
  • but the two days pass and another letter comes and it goes ‘i don’t know if you know the story, oracle. but i was scarred in your countries meek attack on my father. i cannot let my people down and not wage a war, do you understand?’
  • and you remember ,,,,, the scar,,,,,,this must be taehyung and you know you can’t ignore this letter so you write back: ‘i know the story, i know of what happened to you taehyung but the attack on your father was not planned. war won’t be good for either country, it was the work of a wizard.’
  • the letter you get back: ‘and so what, a wizard could be used by your country! they’re using you, an oracle to foretell the future, they could hire another magic being to kill my father!’
  • you can see the handwriting is bigger and more messy, you can see there’s anger in it and you look at the dove as it sits on your balcony waiting for you to reply and you can only write back ‘they’re using my vision to see if there is a war,,,,,and what they will be able to do to stop it. they want nothing to protect our people, they don’t want a war so they wouldn’t have had reason to kill your father. you understand, don’t you - what the consequence on your people will be?’
  • you don’t get a reply for a week and it’s nearing the time of the wedding
  • but suddenly instead of the dove, you get an eagle and the message says ‘come to the outskirts of the stables’ and you’re confused, but you go and you see a hooded figure standing right behind one of the bushes and when the hood comes off you see ,,,,,,,,,,,,,, the most handsome boy
  • with beautiful glowing skin, a lean figure and then,,,,,,,,,,the scar,,,,,,
  • and you gasp because taEHYUNG???? prince TAEHYUNG??? and he’s like “shhhhh, ive come here,,,,,,,to ask you something.”
  • and you’re like what???? you know if the princes find you you’ll be arres-
  • and he’s like shaking his head and he’s like “is it true, you’re an oracle. is it true they didn’t plan the attack on my father.”
  • and you swallow and stand up a bit straighter and you’re like 
  • “i,,,,,,,,,would be willing to bet my life. and im sure that the vision i have when im married,,,,,,,,it will proclaim peace. there is no need for this war.”
  • and taehyung looks at you, the stern serious brown in his eyes suddenly turning slightly softer and he reaches out to touch your hand and you’re like ?
  • and he’s like “excuse me, i just never thought the oracle would turn out to be,,,,,,,,,,this ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,beautiful”
  • and you’re like aHH,,,,,,,but he’s suddenly like “i need to go, now. my horse says someone is coming near. ill,,,,,,,write to you”
  • and you wave him off but as you’re going back inside you’re like wait,,,,,his horse??????Spoke to him
  • and you and taehyung exchange letters until finally on the day before the wedding he shows up and prince jungkook nearly dashes at him, saber out
  • but taehyung is like “im here to deliver official news” and jin is like usually namjoon is sent and taehyung is like “on behalf of my country - i want us to sign a peace treaty. there will be no war.”
  • and everyone is shocked because what,,,,,,,,,,,why the sudden change of heart and taehyung flicks his gaze to where you’re standing back near the palace doors and he’s like “i,,,,,have reflected and see no point in war. i want to protect my people.”
  • and the treaty is signed and it’s celebrated by each country but taehyung suddenly asks jin that,,,,,,,,if it’s possible he’d like to see the oracle and jin is like well,,,,,,,we don’t need the prophecy anymore so it should be safe
  • and taehyung walks over to you and asks if you’ll dance with him to celebrate the treaty
  • and you agree and jimin is like leaning over to jin and he’s like “i can’t believe prince taehyung seduced them in that one minute and we couldn’t do it in a whole 30 days,,,,,,,”

–> Hoseok

  • looks like he follows the rules and listens to the rules of his country and to his other brothers, but in reality there’s something a little,,,,,,mischievous about him
  • is the most social of the brothers when it comes to the people of his country and he enjoys going around without guards in the town and buying from local farmers and talking to school teachers and playing with the kids in the street
  • and is not really sure where he stands on the whole war thing,,,,,,,,,but what he does know is that he’s incredibly interested in the people of other kingdoms,,,,,how do they live? what does their food taste like? what kind of holidays do they have?
  • which is why he travels over to your kingdom one time,,,,,,,,,and he isn’t even sure of all of this oracle business or the war he just wants to see your country for himself
  • and you,,,,,,well you’re a rebellious oracle. you don’t wanna sit in that palace all day with the princes you don’t much want to marry
  • you want to go back, you want to see your family at least see how they’re doing and if they’re worried for you
  • and that’s why one morning you pack yourself some bread and slip out of the garden unnoticed by the maids who you’d distracted with something
  • and you run down the forest path that leads to the town and you’re so happy
  • to be on the streets you are familiar with, see people you know
  • even though you have to hide under a veil you’ve prepared so no one knows who you are and doesn’t report you back to the princes
  • and you’re navigating your way to your parents produce shop when you bump into someone and all the things in their basket go flying
  • and you’re like “oh my gosh im so ,,,, sorry”
  • and you try to pick up a mango that’s rolling away and the person lets out this sunny, melodic chuckle
  • and you look up and ,,,,,,,,,,,, wow,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,there is sunbeams and everything soft embodied in a person and you almost drop that damn mango
  • and he’s like “no problem!! by the way, do you know where i can find this street?”
  • and he shows you a map and you’re like oh,,,,of course-
  • and you give him directions and he gives you another smile that almost makes you tip over because WOW how can someone look like that
  • and you have to part ways but you’re like,,,,,he’s the most wonderful,,,,,,traveler you’ve ever seen
  • and you get back to the palace and are in for an earful from everyone until they’re distracted with incoming news and you see jin open up the paper and 
  • the front page,,,,,,,,,it’s a picture of the traveler you saw???? the super handsome but jin frowns and he’s like “prince hoseok,,,,,,was last seen in our town? they might have sent him as a spy we should do something.”
  • and you’re like wait what and you look at the photo and you’re 100% sure that that’s who you saw,,,,,,,
  • and that night as you’re sleeping you wake up from another dream but,,,,it’s a bad one,,,,,,,,,,,,,really bad and it involves prince hoseok being hurt by one of the villagers,,,,,literally you see him get bludgeoned
  • and you get up and run down the halls to jin’s room and ask his servants to wake him up
  • and when you explain your vision jin kind of goes “that’s,,,,,i can’t allow that to happen. even if he is our rival, send out a search team.”
  • and the entire night is lighted up with the lights from the search team as they look through the town to find the prince
  • and they do,,,,but it’s too late, he’s already been hurt but he’s rushed to the palace to get medical treatment by the in-house doctor
  • and when you hear whats happened you run to go see if prince hoseok is ok
  • and somehow,,,,,,something pulls you toward him and you don’t leave his side the entire night
  • and when he wakes up, still groggy you fill him in and he’s like “you—-you saw a vision? are you the oracle?” and you nod slowly and he’s like “but,,,,,,i saw you in town?” and you’re like “i escaped for a bit, i do that. but seriously, are you ok?”
  • and hoseok smiles and you’re like ???? and he’s like “you’re like me, you can’t sit still.”
  • and you don’t know what to say,,blushing a bit and looking down and you’re like “um,,,,,,,,,” because like ,,,,,,, wow he’s so beautiful even with a bruised lip and a huge bandaged on his head,,,,,,,you can’t help but get embarrassed in front of him
  • and jin comes by and asks if hoseok is spying on their kingdom and hoseok just laughs and is like “no, i was just here to sample the culture” and jin doesn’t believe him but you’re like trying to convince him that hoseok is innocent and jin is like “why are you so,,,,,,,,,,,,,,nice to him?” and you’re like “im an oracle, i have magic in me and my magic is telling me he wasn’t spying.”
  • and jin doesn’t know what to do but he calls for the other two princes to come and pick up their brother
  • and when they do, taehyung and namjoon thank jin for returning their brother safely
  • but you’re sad to see hoseok go,,,,,and you know you have to be married in a couple of days,,,,,,,,but,,,,,,,,,,,
  • until suddenly something begins to hurt in your head and you drop to your knees and jimin rushes to you
  • and you can see it before your eyes,,,,,,,,,that the two kingdoms are at peace,,,,,,,,and you go “the vision,,,,,,,,,,,,,,the prophecy,,,,,,it came to me”
  • and jin is like “without the power of marriage??????” and you look up and hoseok, whose pushed back his brothers to come and lean in front of you and touch your cheek to see if you’re ok
  • and you’re like “,,,,,,,,,yes without marriage,,,,,,,it’s just the power of,,,,,,,,,,,,,,” and you’re looking at hoseok
  • whose looking back at you and you’re like, under your breath “love,,,,,,at first sight?”
  • and jin is like what did you see and you’re like “peace. i saw peace.”
  • and the two set of brothers look at each other and back at you and jimin wants to help you up, but hoseok is already supporting you and when he gets you up you see how you’re pressed into his arms
  • and suddenly you’re getting something else, a vision of a wedding off in the future,,,,,,,,,
  • but the groom waiting at the alter,,,,,,,,,he turns around and,,,,,,
  • it’s that smile. hoseok’s warm, radiating smile and you look back at him as he’s holding you and he’s like “did you see something?”
  • and you’re like “how did you know?”
  • and hoseok, taking your hand to put it over his heart goes “im no oracle, but you’re making me feel something,,,,,,,,,,,,maybe the same thing you saw in your vision?”

Hi! I was wondering if you could give me some tips on outlining a fic? I have my character backgrounds down to a t, and I've been working on world building, but I've still been having trouble getting my ideas organized in a story format. Yours are always so well written and flow so nicely, I was hoping you had some advice! Thank you! 💕 (PS your newest fic is amazing and I can't wait for more!!!)

God I have been putting off answering this one too long because I Take Outlines So Seriously. In the last week I’ve probably written 30K words, and only about 7K was fic. The rest was the outline rough draft and then the outline final.

HOW TO WRITE MASSIVE FICS LIKE A FUCKING BOSS: THE ARCTURUS METHODOLOGY

So I have literally a Process I use. My larger fics literally have a pre-production period that I have to work through before they are ready to be written.

Severus was an asshole but not for telling people Remus was a werewolf

I know Severus is a Certified Asshole™ but telling people about Remus’ werewolf condition is really not the “bad thing” about the whole situation.

Consider this: 

  • Severus could have done it any day, he did not have to wait for things to go wrong because technically telling people Remus was a werewolf was telling a fairly important truth
  • for the love of god it is not like outing someone’s sexuality because sexuality is purely personal whilst being a werewolf is very much a potential danger to others
  • sexualities do not kill……. dont compare being gay to being cursed by a bite someone forced onto you and an illness that ruins your life…… that’s so wrong pls
  • Severus also only did it after Remus actually did forget to drink his potion
  • Remus could have legitimately killed or infected students (were they not protected by the main-character shield)
  • Ok tbh Remus forgetting to take his potion is cringeworthy bullshit bc no matter the circumstances he could not possibly “forget” about the full damn moon
  • Also he only transformed when looking at the moon which implies he would not have changed if he had stayed inside and not looked at or remembered the moon??? bc it had literally been a full moon for hours already at the time????? someone clearly needs to read a “writing werewolves 101″
  • Back to business:
  • Dumbledore gave Remus a jinxed position
  • Do not dare to tell me Remus got kicked out of a stable and safe place there was literally nothing stable or safe about Hogwarts (especially not the DADA teacher position)
  • It was likely Remus’ home in a way, and he loved his job, but that doesn’t change the above
  • Dumbledore knew Remus would not stay for longer than a year
  • people had very literally died from being DADA teachers (or ended up w permanent damage)
  • Werewolves………. in a jinxed and deadly position…….. with children everywhere….
  • Severus spilling his secret and causing him to fire himself is a dick move but Remus could literally not have stayed bc of the jinx
  • It was probably one of the “gentlest” ways a teacher had left the jinxed DADA position??
  • the law that was passed afterwards is an entirely different story but more on that later (stay tuned)
  • you do realise that Severus had been waiting nearly an entire year for Remus to fuck up and it actually happened and he only did it after witnessing Remus going berserk before his very own eyes (thank god for plot conveniences preventing any characters getting hurt)
  • saying “hey, this man is a werewolf and I have seen him nearly harm students because he did not take his potion” is a very real reason to fire someone
  • we forget this because we like Remus and he deserves happiness while Severus is typically an asshole and Dumbledore gives no fucks about safety whatsoever
  • but actually “outing” Remus was really not that much of a dick move as it was a logical reaction
  • because in a school known for Murder Ball (aka quiditch), The Hunger Games (magical edition), a very real secret chamber that contained a very real deadly gigantic monster, literally being situated in a Forbidden Forest full of malevolent creatures (featuring Arachnid Death and Angry Horses), and the occasional visit from voldemort, you might want to not add a werewolf to the list
  • we should also not forget that Severus knew very damn well what a werewolf out of control looked like and what it could do
  • since one (the very one now teaching in hogwarts) had nearly killed him several years ago
  • this is not a matter of whether it was his own fault either i’m just saying that severus wasn’t making up some shit about werewolves being dangerous because he was petty
  • i mean he definitely is petty but
  • he was not exagerating the danger in any way and had all the reason to not be okay with a werewolf in school especially the one that nearly killed him idk dumbledore does not care about severus whatsoever lol
  • note that I am not saying the law against werewolf employment was justified
  • that is absolutely not ok wtf
  • see, the real thing that should anger you (it surely angers me) is the diddly darn ministry of magic
  • why tf would you pass a law that alienates a bunch of people that are often not only innocent victims but also p dangerous and in need of help
  • even from a purely strategical view: you want these people on your side
  • they are vulnerable and deadly
  • the sort of combination that opens many possibilities
  • WEREWOLF ENHANCED SENSES??? do they realise the lost potential of not using that???
  • Voldemort will scrape them up you know this why are you more bigoted/stupid than the actual enemy

knitman  asked:

hi! i've been living on my own for awhile lately but always with roommates, do you have any tips on moving into an apartment alone for the first time?

I actually spent four months living in my current apartment on my own when we first moved in. As part of my boyfriend’s associates degree, he was required to intern out of state, so we had that long distance lifestyle for a few months. That was interesting. I guess technically he still lived with me because he helped pay the rent, but it sure as hell felt like I was living on my own. In my experience:

1. PKW. Phone, keys, wallet. Every time you go anywhere. Check twice. The worst part of living on your own is having to rely on yourself to never forget to lock yourself out or leave your wallet at a sandwich shop in a mall. Make absolutely sure you have duplicates of your keys (I would get a couple made) and give one to a friend who lives nearby who you can count on. I also like to keep an extra set inside the apartment itself in a secure place, just in case. Your landlord can let you in during office hours, but giving a key to a trustworthy friend helps you 24/7.

2. Cleaning routine. You don’t have to sit down at a writing desk and draft this out, but spend a few minutes coming up with a basic cleaning regime for you to follow. It’s definitely easier to do a little each day, but if that doesn’t work for your schedule set aside at least an hour and a half during your time off to get your apartment spotless. I don’t know about you, but whenever I deep clean my apartment I feel like I’m living in a hotel for a day, and I absolutely love it.

3. Make a “moving” shopping list. This is everything you will need (minus food) for your first week at your new place. First aid kit, cleaning supplies, tape, cat food, etc. Your first week moving into your new place will be stressful enough, you don’t want to be halfway through setting up your living room and realize that you forgot to buy trash bags.

4. Secure yourself. I’m not the most agile or fast person in the world, and I do live in a mid-sized city that has a good deal of crime. The apartment complex I live in is very safe, but I still like to double lock my front door at night. It might be smart to keep some pepper spray or a baseball bat somewhere in your apartment, just in case. 

5. Stay social. Even the most anti-social person gets lonely. Make sure to hang out with your friends, not just your co-workers, your actual friends. Get out off your apartment every few days and go see a movie, get a cup of coffee, go people watching at the park, etc. It’s easy to get depressed if you’re living alone and doing the same things the same way every day- allow yourself to mix it up.

6. Meal prep. It can be stressful and seem useless to cook complicated or “fancy” meals when you’re living on your own. Plan your meals for the week and make a list before going shopping. Get yourself enough food to make a variety of dinners that will only take you fifteen minutes. If you do want to go crazy and make steak and mashed potatoes for yourself, make enough for two meals. Also, nobody is going to think poorly of you for stocking your fridge with a couple frozen dinners.

7. Customer service. Living alone means that you are going to be doing a lot of talking to customer service representatives. Get comfortable talking to people over the phone. Tell the rep what you need as quickly as you can, and try to be polite because customer service at a phone center is a garbage job that doesn’t pay well. On the flip side, don’t be afraid to ask for a manager if you’re upset or unhappy with your service. Take their survey at the end of your phone call, tell them how unhappy you are. It’s someone’s shitty job to look at all those surveys, no complaint goes unheard. Companies with great phone service: Verizon, Apple, Amazon. Companies with awful phone service: USPS (literally the worst), electric companies, health insurance companies.

8. Guest space. This is not required, but it’s a good idea to have some sort of space for a friend to stay the night. A friend of mine had a bad breakup, showed up at my apartment with ten minute’s notice, and then fell asleep on my couch after an hour of crying. It as 7:30! Whatever, she needed it. Keep an extra blanket and pillow in your closet, I like to keep travel sized shampoos and conditioners in my bathroom cabinet on the off chance a guest wants to use my shower. I got these at a hotel for free, but they’re available at CVS and other pharmacies.

9. Toilet paper. Don’t let yourself run out of toilet paper! I like to buy more when I notice I only have one roll left. The same deal goes for paper towels.

10. Enjoy. Living on your own is simoltaneously exciting and exhausting, but an all around must-have experience. Enjoy the freedom to forget to make the bed, to decorate your bathroom however you want, to have ice cream for dinner, to watch reruns of Friends and cry when Rachel decides to move to France. Make sure to give yourself lots of space to move at your own pace, but please remember to eat three meals a day and to go to the doctor’s for a checkup at least once a year!

Under any other circumstances, the sight of your unconscious sister with her limbs sprawled across the beige sands of the shoreline would had struck you with a twisted sense of delight, yet you felt nothing of the sort presently. The young woman’s ear-splitting screech would be enough to deter even the mightiest of beasts, the most brazen of foes, and then reduce common folk to a quivering mess.

It would be a surprise if the whole village hadn’t been alerted that something was amiss, or at the very least to her. Hylia bless her, as much as you cherished your sister, she didn’t have much of a backbone to keep her upright in times of terror. Although you could say that you were currently experiencing a tangible amount of what she usually did at any moment she was startled.

You trudged across the short expanse of sand, driftwood, and jagged stone to where she laid, digging your knees into the soggy ground as you lifted her until she sat upright and thumbed across the narrow gash on her temple. She definitely had earned it in her graceful collapse.

“Gracious! I didn’t expect for her to react like that. I only thought to introduce myself as your lover.”

“Damnit, Sidon!“
