sorry i'm not posting much lately i have a lot of exams

if someone told me, on the day that i started this blog, that i would have over 1k followers within a month and a half, i would instantly laugh and say, “no way! that’s crazy. you’re kidding, right?”

Hello ❤️ have you read any new Marcel fic recently that you would rec? I've just found out that I passed my exams with top grades and I'm in the mood to treat myself😌

Well first of all, congratulations, anon!!! good for you! :))

And second of all, sorry. I wish I had read some new Marcel fics lately, but I have not. 

I don’t think there’s really been that much Marcel published as of late, so I am going to take this opportunity to selfishly promote my own short lil marcel fic:

It’s A Rare Condition by gloria_andrews - 6.8k 

and of course, Lexy’s Marcel masterpiece, even though you’ve hopefully already read it:

But Why Wonder, Why Wonder? by 100percentsassy - 30k

otherwise, in terms of general larry fic here is some stuff that I enjoyed recently:

Christmas Without You by Objectlesson - 5.6k

It’s Christmas Eve and Harry misses Louis so badly he might be going little crazy.

okay seriously, i cannot get ENOUGH of everything objectlesson writes.  The strength of feeling almost always makes me literally gasp at least once per fic.  I just subscribed, because I should have done that like forever ago, and I saw they wrote another fic recently called Saved Tonight (30k) that I haven’t read yet, but i’m preemptively reccing, anyway.  

Yet In Thy Dark Street Shineth by juliusschimdt - 58k

Louis’ life has become the very thing he’s always dreaded: routine. His job is steady, his bills are paid, his friends are preoccupied, his siblings are mostly old enough not to need him, and his mom keeps pestering him about attending church. Apparently, the new minister pulls rainbows and unicorns out of his robes.

Advent arrives three months into Harry’s first call as associate pastor at St. Andrews. Life is… not perfect. He’s still figuring out how do his job and the holidays bring a whole bundle of extra stress. On top of which, he has no friends or family nearby with whom he can decompress. Louis Tomlinson shows up to worship in the nick of time.

This was written as an advent fic and it just made my whole December so nice.  Harry and Louis are so lovely in it and it’s genuinely funny, too.  Read it!! you won’t regret it!! (PS @juliusschmidt has been posting little fics in the Last Best Option Universe lately and they are great and also make my heart ache!)

Black With Autumn Rain by whimsicule - 93k

“Thank you,” Geoff says, taking a sip of his tea. “What did you tell him?”

Louis has a sip as well, lets the tea burn down his throat too quickly, too hot, and he feels it all the way down to his stomach. “The truth. Essentially,” he replies after a moment, licking his lips, relishing the slightly bitter taste of the brew that’s never quite strong enough for Louis’ liking. At least it’s not decaf. “That my dog scented it. That I didn’t touch the body. That I came here first thing.”

Geoff nods pensively. “Did he believe you?”

“Probably not. There’s only so many people who can drown on dry land before it gets fishy.”

or: Harry is a journalist, Louis has lots of secrets and the moors aren’t exactly the ideal place to rekindle a lost romance.

What a great fic!!!! like seriously.  just reading the title takes me to a certain place in my mind! the descriptions are so good and the feelings are really intense and i don’t know what more you could ask for!! 

Chestnuts Roasting… And All That by Elsi_bee - 47K  

Louis is apparently the only person at his new job who is single as can be. It’s not a big deal to just tell his new colleagues that he has a boyfriend, right? Until he has to make this imaginary boyfriend magically appear at the office holiday party. Cue fake relationship antics with a certain someone who is more than willing to play along.

This one is locked on ao3, so you do need a profile to read it, but it’s sooooo good!! i loved it!! Perfect, holiday fake boyfriends AU.  I’ve already reread the angst/resolution part like 3x.  :)))

Okay, that’s it for now!! 

12 June - first of all, sorry for being so inactive as of late exams have begun so I’m spending all my time either revising or relaxing and don’t have much time to answer people ! but ye here are my notes for philosophy which I’ve now started doing on pictures of idols because i got bored one day and did it and realised I can actually remember a lot like this because I have a p visual memory. plus it stops me getting distracted and looking for pictures of them when I should be studying. ik it’s trash [ive been posting a lot more on my ig:studysthetics than here so if u miss me I’ll b there]

anonymous asked:

Hi there! So, as someone who's been through art school, what do you think are the pros and cons of going? And what advice would you give to someone who is considering going into art school? Thanks! Hope you have a great day! ^▽^

Oh man this has been sitting in my inbox forever and i completely forgot about it until now. So sorry anon you’re probably long gone and probably found better advice elsewhere, but I thought i’d answer anyway for those who are curious enough about my opinions HAHAHA It’s going to be a long post so sorry for taking up so much space o)-<

To start off, i have many regrets about college, about the classes I took, about the classes i missed out on taking, but I will never regret going to art college as a whole. I would choose art school over a liberal arts university with no hesitation, because I can’t see my life at all being away from the arts.

aaliyahitsmebish  asked:

Hey I was wondering if you could do a imagine with any of the magcon boys for me I'm not picky so either one is fine. My name is Aaliyah I think u have a great imagination so think of something thanks! I know you'll do great

@y/t/n = your twitter name    y/f/n= your full name

        “Hey, babe! I’m home!“ you say, as you put your backpack down on the chair. You had just gotten home from school. Exams just ended and you couldn’t be happier. Jack walks into the room with a stone cold expression on his face, and his eyes dark. “Babe, what-” you begin to say, but get cut off by him. “Care to explain?” he spits, showing you his phone. A fan tweeted a pic of you and your ex boyfriend kissing from 3 years ago.

There were a lot of negative comments on the post. Jack’s jaw was set, and you knew he believed the post. “Babe, that pic was from 3 years ago,” you explain.

        “Then why does it say, ‘Taken 4 weeks ago’? And don’t call me babe,“ he growls. You were really surprised. He never acted like this, and he loved when you called him babe. "It was probably just some fan that wants to start drama,” you say. “Are you insulting my fans?” he scowls, looking you dead in the eye. “No, Jack. It’s just. Why do you believe the post? Do you not trust me? I broke up with Logan 3 years ago. I love you and only you.” you state. “Yeah? Well I have a hard time believing that. You traveled to Texas, his home state, oh let me see. 4 weeks ago! Who knows what you could’ve done?!” he yells. “Just trust me on this, Jack!” you say, raising your voice.

        "No! I can’t trust a girl who goes behind my back, and cheats on me with her ex! And to think I ever loved you!“ he shouts, running his fingers through his hair. Tears prick in the back of your eyes. "Well, good relationships are all about trust and love!” you yell, your face getting red. “Then maybe we shouldn’t be in a relationship!” he screams, towering over you. “Yeah, maybe we shouldn’t!” you shout, “I wish I had never dated you!” You regret it as soon as you say it. The world freezes. Jack’s eyes fill with hurt, then more anger. “We’re through so you don’t have to worry about me anymore!” he shouts, walking towards the door.

        "I’ll be here tomorrow to pick up my stuff,“ he forces out, before leaving and slamming the door behind him. You let the tears fall, and sobs rake your body. You call your best friend over. As soon as she sees you, she drops her bags, runs up, and hugs you. "What happened?” she whispers, rubbing your back. “J-jack got worked up o-over an old picture of m-me and Logan kissing. We g-got really mad at each other, and ended it,” you whimper. “I’m so sorry. He made a big mistake. He’ll come back. I promise,” she comforts. “But for now, I brought candy, ice cream, Nutella, pretzels, and movies!” she exclaims. You laugh and dry your tears.

        There was just a hole in your heart. Not even ice cream, Nutella, or Netflix could fill it. Only Jack could. But for now, it was time to at least try to fill it. “Which movie should we watch first?” your bestie asks. “Um. Pitch Perfect!” you laugh.“There’s my girl!” she says, handing you a pint of ice cream. You lay on the couch, in your pajamas with blankets wrapped around you. Your phone lights up, and it’s a text from Jack Johnson, one of your closest guy friends.

Your best friend reads it. “How does Johnson know?” she questions. “Jack probably told him,” you say, your voice cracking.

*Flashback* Jack G’s POV

       I stormed out and slammed the door. I had just walked out on y/n. We ended it. We’re over. My eyes start to pool with tears as I drive to me and Johnson’s place. I don’t let them fall. ‘I just can’t believe her! Why would she cheat on me?! And with her ex!?’ I think as I pull into the driveway. I walk sluggishly to the door and open it, walking in. Johnson is on the couch watching TV. He sees me and his jaw drops. He gets up and heads towards me. As he sits me down on the couch, he says,“Bro, what happened?” He’s never seen me like this. “Y/n and I. W-we broke up. She cheated on me with her ex! I s-saw a picture,” I manage to say. Tears end up pouring down my face, and Jack pats me on the back.

         “Hey, I’m sure the pic was old. Believe me, y/n would never cheat on you. She loves you too much,” he soothes. “It doesn’t seem like it,” I mumble. “Give it some time. You guys will fix things. I promise,” Johnson says. “Thanks, man.” I say, wiping my tears away. “I think I’m just gonna head to bed,” I say, and walk upstairs. I pull the covers tightly around myself, missing her laying down with me. I eventually let more tears slip, wondering what was going on inside y/n’s head before falling into a deep sleep.

*Flashback over* Your POV

        You and your best friend stayed up late, but she eventually left because she had to work the next day. You climbed in bed, and laid there, missing Jack’s protective arm around you. Then, you cried yourself to sleep, wondering what was going on in his mind. The next day, you woke up feeling nothing like yourself. Everything felt…wrong without Jack. You just sat on the couch, not knowing what to do. Your phone lit up again, and it was another text from Johnson.

Tears filled your eyes. It was going to be a long day.

Jack G’s POV

       I locked myself in my room, ignoring Johnson’s pleas to let him in. I scrolled through Twitter, and landed on the pic of y/n and her ex again. Seeing them together and kissing killed me. Tears flooded my eyes and everything became blurry for a minute. But then it all came into focus. The tiny print in the bottom right corner of the pic. ‘Taken 3 years ago.’ My mind took a few minutes to process it. Uh oh, I had read it wrong before. A fan must’ ve edited it to start drama. But now I know. I had walked out on y/n for nothing. Absolutely nothing. I sighed. Then, and idea popped into my head. I knew how I would get her back.

Your POV

         As you sat in bed, you wondered if Jack would actually come back to pick up his stuff. The opening and closing of your door confirmed your thoughts. Jack walked in. He looked like a mess, but then again, so did you. “Jack, I-” you begin, but he cuts you off. “Shh. Just hear me out,” he said. You closed your mouth and listened. He began to sing Sorry by Justin Bieber. As he sang, he looked you deep in the eyes.


You gotta go and get
Angry at all of my honesty
You know I try but I don’t do too well with apologies
I hope I don’t run out of time, could someone call a referee?
Cause I just need one more shot at forgiveness

Made those mistakes maybe once or twice
And by once or twice I Mean
Maybe a couple a hundred times
So let me oh let me
Redeem oh redeem oh myself tonight
Cause I just need one more shot at second chances

Yeah
Is it too late now to say sorry?
Cause I’m missing more than just your body, ohh
Is it too late now to say sorry?
Yeah I know that I let you down
Is it too late to say I’m sorry now?
I’m sorry yeah
Sorry yeah
Sorry
Yeah I know that I let you down
Is it too late to say I’m sorry now?

I’ll take every single piece of the blame
If you want me too
But you know that there is no innocent one in this game for two
I’ll go I’ll go and then
You go you go out and spill the truth
Can we both say the words, say forget this?

Yeah
Is it too late now to say sorry?
Cause I’m missing more than just your body, ohh
Is it too late now to say sorry?
Yeah I know that I let you down
Is it too late to say I’m sorry now?

I’m not just trying to get you back on me (oh, no, no)
Cause I’m missing more than just your body (your body), ohh
Is it too late now to say sorry?
Yeah I know that I let you down
Is it too late to say I’m sorry now?

I’m sorry (yeah)
Sorry (oh)

Is it too late to say I’m sorry now?

I’m sorry (yeah)
Sorry (oh)
Sorry
Yeah I know that I let you down (let you down)
Is it too late to say I’m sorry now?  

         As he finished the last verse, he stepped closer to you and grabbed your hand. “I’m so sorry. I should have listened to you. Can you forgive me?” he whispers. “Yes, I already have,” you reply, hugging him. He smiles, and it’s the brightest thing you’ve seen since the breakup. But that was past, you two were back together. Stronger than ever. He pulled you into a passionate kiss. You two broke apart, and rested your foreheads against each others. “I love you, Jack Gilinsky,” you say. “I love you even more, y/f/n.” he says. Believe it or not, that was only one tiny chapter in your amazing love story.

Here you go! I originally had this in my drafts, but I hope you like it! :D

starlitspring  asked:

Hey there :) I just read your 'animals gone mad' meta and you made the point about Stiles being heavily associated with keys & I was wondering if you could develop on that more (I'm a sucker for character associations ;)? I know there's the whole key thing @ the beginning of 3B but I hadn't noticed anything beyond that. Probably because I haven't had the time to re-watch in a while (damn you exams :/). Also, I saw your Norwegian National Day selfie and you have a really pretty smile :)

Hey, okay *deep breath* … since you ask so nicely :) (and thanks for the compliment on my smile, buttering me up does help *wink*) Also, marvxll I’m sorry for the late reply, the season 5 trailer appeared suddenly and derailed my attention for a bit :) 

Firstly, athenadark has already written a meta on Stiles and keys as well, and you can read it here. She touches upon pretty much the same stuff I mentioned in my 3x01 rewatch post (and to be honest, I probably got the idea from her in the first place) about the nemeton being a door (or prison) that holds the evil at bay, and that stiles seem to be a key that can either serve as a gatekeeper, making sure it stays away or can unlock it. 3b was all about “void” trying to coax Stiles to open the door and let the “water” in. All the way back in 2x11 Morrell cautioned Stiles against this, “to hold on and keep walking through hell”, “to not let the water in”. 

Stiles is associated with doors, doorways, transitional spaces and keys pretty much from the the start of the series. Something’s in the water, like the sheriff said so jokingly in 3x01 and it does seem to be tied to the telluric currents, the nemeton and the lake. Water is also a symbol for transformation (running water) and death and damnation (still water) unless Stiles is present. Then it’s just damnation.

We have players associated with the nemeton, namely the druids, who all act weird around Stiles. First we have Deaton who seem cagey around him and who never include Stiles in his plans. He usually concoct them alone with Scott and probably encourage him not to share it with anyone. Deaton is just about the only authority figure that Scott does listen to, and I find it hard to believe that Scott would exclude Stiles  unless Deaton has whispered in his ear. Like Scott admits in season 4 - he sucks at making plans and that is what Stiles is for. Unless Deaton is involved. 

Deaton also “tests” Stiles in 2x08 with the mountain ash, a test he passed with flying colors, but Deaton has not made any attempts to teach or guide Stiles since. Stiles seems to be more closely linked to the Nemeton than say Scott, who can tap into the currents and gain power that way. Perhaps Deaton views Stiles as a potential stopper, someone with more control/power over the nemeton. The druids need to sacrifice to it to gain power, Scott can tap into the currents, but Stiles seem to have a more natural connection to it - the key basically.

Then we have Jennifer who looks to Stiles when the birds attack, who flinches away from him, who realize that he has Derek’s trust and deliberately uses their bond to make herself desirable to him, and get him under her thumb. She also takes Stiles’ dad and locks him out of the classroom when she does so. She basically seem to consider him a bigger threat than Scott. 

Lastly Morrell, another druid, but who seem to operate more deliberately within the rules of her kind and with the mantra of “maintain the balance” and is willing to “get her hands dirty” and interact with players on all sides if it suits her agenda. She too seems wary of Stiles, but unlike Deaton she’s willing to work with him, guide him and caution him. To what end remains to be seen. 

So back to Stiles, doors, doorways and keys… This will be long and pic heavy so hit the link for the rest.
