I keep forgetting to do this! But I remembered today, so have another peek at my WIP Fitzsimmons Titanic AU.
“I want to go sailing with you, on the river,” she continued, looking earnestly up at him. “I want to go with you back to Belfast and see you meet with Mr. Andrews and get an apprenticeship, and see your dreams start to become a reality. I want to find a laboratory that will let me work and conduct my research…I want to read whatever books I please, and learn about anything I wish, and stay up long into the night discussing it all with you. I want to create new ideas, inventions with you. And maybe, one day, if we can both manage it…maybe we can both go to university. Just like we dreamed.” Her smile widened. “I want to do all of those things, and more, all with you.”
Fitz sucked in a shaky breath and reached up to cup her face in his hands, looking deeply affected by her words. “You’re amazing, you know that?” he murmured fiercely. When she started to protest demurely, he cut her off with a shake of his head, stepping more into her space. “No,” he insisted, “you are. You’re brilliant, and beautiful, and…I’m so fortunate to have met you. It could have been anyone out there on deck that night who found you, but it was me. And I’ve never been so glad for anything.”

wear a matching set of lingerie or fun, festive boxers (you know the superhero boxers with the capes attatched? those ones)
shave. your legs, your face, your armpits, shave it all off
curl your lashes. you don’t even have to put on mascara. sometimes it’s the little things you learn to appreciate about yourselves
pay for the customer behind you. it’s just something nice you can do while getting coffee. the customer behind you will appreciate it a lot and making others happy tends to make you feel happy too
make your bed- but not in the cleaning way. got a super nice matching pillowcase/sheet set? go put that shit on and make your bed feel comfy as possible. throw on all your stuffed animals and lay in one big cuddle puddle. bonus points for taking all the pillows in the house
power poses dude. do them! stand with your hands on your hips and chin up high! or if you’re sitting down, spread your legs out wide. make yourself look big. this one usually helps me feel more confident
invite friends over for dinner. make the dinner together. even if you fuck up and it turns out burnt to a crisp and totally inedible, it’s gonna be super fun to make! (you can buy a cheap frozen pizza as a backup ahead of time)
change your hair up. cut it. dye it. curl it. crimp it. gel it. shave it if you’re daring enough! temporary dyes are always fun to play with if your hair is light enough. if not, find all the hair clips and pins in the house and stick them on ya! bonus points for going out to the McDonald’s drive thru with friends looking like that. It’ll be a fun time for you and your cashier
send your followers nice anons and then look back to see how happy they were to get it! this one is always super nice for everyone
for those of you with longer nails: sharpen them. file them so that they look like cat claws and start ripping paper or drag them along your skin. it feels super weird but in a nice, ticklish way
teach yourself how to wink. smooch the mirror after putting on a bright shade of lipstick. twerk it. just have fun and be silly
get an eyeshadow palette (something cheaper) and make your brows look THICC. I mean HUGE and DARK. wiggle them in the mirror and take some funny selfies or snaps. send them to your crush and see what they say
go to a thrift store with $10 and see what neat thing you can find! you can treat yourself with a brand new curling iron, clothes, a new blender, or even a fucking COUCH for just $10 if you go to your local goodwill. just go off and venture! you never know what cool items you’ll find and you won’t feel bad about getting it when it costs little to nothing
go to a plant nursery and pick up a few nice house plants. I bought 3 nice house plants for just 9 bucks when I was sad one day and now I have a bunch of fresh herbs that make my room smell awesome
July 2nd. You were born on July 2nd. It was a hot night and, for some reason, I decided to clean the house before I woke your father. He ran over to the neighbor’s house to borrow their car but didn’t speak any Chinese. So, um… It was a mess.
