All you need for these adorable noms are large eggs and egg molds (can be found on eBay, Amazon or speciality bento sites)
First, start with LARGE eggs (small eggs won’t fill the mold, and you’ll end up with half-shapes). Add about 1 tablespoon of salt for each 3 eggs boiled.
This extra salt does not flavor the eggs at all - as the water boils, the salty liquid penetrates the shell through osmosis and provides sort of a cushion of liquid between the egg and the shell. This makes it much easier to peel.
Boil the eggs for about 15-18 minutes. This helps loosen the egg from its shell. The time may vary on your stovetop, so experiment until you find the right combination : )
When the eggs are done boiling, tap them gently on a flat surface to split the shell - be careful not to puncture the egg! If needed, briefly run the egg under cool water, but don’t let the egg become cold. In order to mold properly the egg must still be HOT!
Gently and carefully squeeze the hot egg a little to fit it into the mold better. Don’t go too fast or the egg will crack. The egg is still very pliable when its hot.
After it’s tucked into its mold just right, you can close the lid. If the mold you’re using doesn’t lock closed very well, try using rubber bands to keep it tight.
When the molds are all filled, put them into an ice bath. I put this bowl into the fridge for about a half hour or so.
When you’re ready to take one out, run it under hot water for a second. It helps loosen it from the mold. Open the mold and wiggle the egg a little until it comes out easily.
A/N: I had so much fun writing this :) Hope you like it. Most of it’s under the cut because it got long
“What the hell did you say to me?” The guy growls in your face.
You’re big mouth was always getting you into trouble, mostly because you wanted it to, because getting into fights was something to do on the Isle. Fighting was something your brother had taught you, the act of stamping down submission and punching back with all your might. Now, staring at the guy who had you pinned to the wall, the small spark of submissiveness still inside you was stamped out consciously.
“I said,” Your eyes burn with anger, the stupid anger that leads to your stupid bravery, “You’re a fuckwit,” You spit in the guy’s face, “Who punches like a girl.”
Thats the cataclysm for the guy to drop you, swinging his arm around to deck you. You duck, and kick him in the knees before brining your own knee up. He doubles over.
“This is the Isle of the Lost you idiot,” You hiss, “Physical intimidation works about as well as the tv’s here.”
Halloween prompts: wintershieldshock for #12 'I've got fifteen Apple pie recipes and we're going to test them all. Are you with me?' i love youuuuu
Thiiiiiiis miiiight be more about my love of pie than about the love of Darcy, Bucky and Steve D: But that’s okay cause I will be sharing my love of pie with you soon so this is like a precursor! Love you, bloombloomboomboombbnut!
12. ‘I’ve got fifteen Apple pie recipes and we’re going to test them all. Are you with me?’
Rating G to T for a little implied smuff
Bucky ran into Steve’s back as he stopped still on the way into the apartment.
“What the-“ Bucky started.
“The hell?” Steve said at the same moment.
Bucky moved around the broad shoulders blocking his way, and found apples. Apples in blood reds and sour greens and soft pink and yellow shades, clumsily arranged on the counter, bags of flour and sugar and cases of butter and eggs squeezed in whereever they could fit. Darcy was behind the counter, her back to them, bent over a notebook as she flipped pages and muttered to herself.
“Hey there, Darce? Hon?” Steve said, passing him to the counter and lifting up a perfectly smooth red apple up from the corner. He brushed it across the shoulder of his shirt and had it poised at his lips when Darcy’s head lifted up and her arm swung back to point squarely at him.
“Don’t you dare eat that,” she said firmly, not turning. “I’m not sure I have security apples.”
“Security apples?” Steve mouthed to Bucky, setting the apple carefully back down on the marble.

Summary: In this world, people find the right Pokémon egg for them and hatch their very own pokédaemon, their most faithful companion, the one who reflects their soul. Touching another person’s daemon is like touching their soul itself, an honor reserved only for the closest of friends, family and lovers.
Leonard Snart and Mick Rory know this very well.
(Kara Danvers doesn’t because it’s not a thing on her Earth. Oops!)
A/N: I blame @oneiriad for this idea. Fusion with Pokémon and daemons (Golden Compass/Northern Lights).
Len’s always been good at getting into places he oughtn’t be.
His mother, before she died, used to tell stories of how he was no sooner home than crawling and no sooner crawling than in trouble. Her Ninetails, long and sleek and warm, quickly grew accustomed to being climbed upon by an eager toddler.
Len’s father had married her for her Ninetails. She made a much better mascot for his informal business - egg-smuggling - than his own daemon, a Muk with a snarling demeanor.
Egg-smuggling, of course, was incredibly illegal. Normal eggs were everywhere, of course, hatching perfectly regular Pokémon. But somewhere in the many eggs scattered around, each person was fated to meet the egg that their presence would cause to hatch, to meet their daemon - their heart’s companion - at the proper time, typically around puberty. It’s said that you get the Pokémon that reflects your soul, but everyone knows that people tend to hatch the eggs they see around them. A wooded area has Eevees and Caterpie by the dozens; a seaside village is filled with Psyducks and Tentacools; a mining quarry has more Geodudes and Diglets than they know what to do with. Scientists have long wondered: is it that people are affected by their surroundings? Or is it that the quantity of eggs laid in the surrounding area that makes it more likely that you’ll encounter an egg of a specific type?
The rich and powerful prefer the latter theory. See, the rich want something new and different, something uncommon and rare. And, well, if what matters is what you’re exposed to and all you ever handled were rare imported eggs, then eventually, that’s what would hatch for you - or so goes the theory.
And from that theory, there started the black market trade of egg-smuggling.
Len had been content with the idea of finding his own daemon the natural way, thank you; he preferred the warm, generous love shared between his mother and her Ninetails, which she’d hatched at twelve, than the coldly efficient alliance of interest between his father and his Muk, hatched when his father had been nineteen and already involved in the egg-smuggling trade.
1. Take your bananas apart when you get home from the store. If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster.
2. Store your opened chunks of cheese in aluminum foil. It will stay fresh much longer and not mold!
3. Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating. Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are firmer and better for cooking.
4. Add a teaspoon of water when frying ground beef. It will help pull the grease away from the meat while cooking.
5. To really make scrambled eggs or omelets rich add a couple of spoonfuls of sour cream, cream cheese, or heavy cream in and then beat them up.
6. For a cool brownie treat, make brownies as directed. Melt Andes mints in double broiler and pour over warm brownies. Let set for a wonderful minty frosting.
7. Add garlic immediately to a recipe if you want a light taste of garlic and at the end of the recipe if your want a stronger taste of garlic.
8. Leftover snickers bars from Halloween make a delicious dessert. Simply chop them up with the food chopper. Peel, core and slice a few apples. Place them in a baking dish and sprinkle the chopped candy bars over the apples. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes!!! Serve alone or with vanilla ice cream. Yummm!
9. Reheat Pizza Heat up leftover pizza in a nonstick skillet on top of the stove, set heat to med-low and heat till warm. This keeps the crust crispy. No soggy micro pizza. I saw this on the cooking channel and it really works.
10. Easy Deviled Eggs Put cooked egg yolks in a zip lock bag. Seal, mash till they are all broken up. Add remainder of ingredients, reseal, keep mashing it up mixing thoroughly, cut the tip of the baggy, squeeze mixture into egg. Just throw bag away when done easy clean up.
11. Expanding Frosting When you buy a container of cake frosting from the store, whip it with your mixer for a few minutes. You can double it in size. You get to frost more cake/cupcakes with the same amount. You also eat less sugar and calories per serving.
12. Reheating refrigerated bread To warm biscuits, pancakes, or muffins that were refrigerated, place them in a microwave with a cup of water. The increased moisture will keep the food moist and help it reheat faster.
13. Newspaper weeds away Start putting in your plants, work the nutrients in your soil. Wet newspapers, put layers around the plants overlapping as you go. Cover with mulch and forget about weeds. Weeds will get through some gardening plastic they will not get through wet newspapers.
14. Broken Glass Use a wet cotton ball or Q-tip to pick up the small shards of glass you can’t see easily.
15. No More Mosquitoes Place a dryer sheet in your pocket. It will keep the mosquitoes away.
16. Squirrel Away! To keep squirrels from eating your plants, sprinkle your plants with cayenne pepper. The cayenne pepper doesn’t hurt the plant and the squirrels won’t come near it.
17. Flexible vacuum To get something out of a heat register or under the fridge add an empty paper towel roll or empty gift wrap roll to your vacuum. It can be bent or flattened to get in narrow openings.
18. Reducing Static Cling Pin a small safety pin to the seam of your slip and you will not have a clingy skirt or dress. Same thing works with slacks that cling when wearing panty hose. Place pin in seam of slacks and … guess what! … static is gone.
19. Measuring Cups Before you pour sticky substances into a measuring cup, fill with hot water. Dump out the hot water, but don’t dry cup. Next, add your ingredient, such as peanut butter, and watch how easily it comes right out. (Or spray the measuring cup or spoon with Pam before using)
20. Foggy Windshield? Hate foggy windshields? Buy a chalkboard eraser and keep it in the glove box of your car When the windows fog, rub with the eraser! Works better than a cloth!
21. Re-opening envelopes If you seal an envelope and then realize you forgot to include something inside, just place your sealed envelope in the freezer for an hour or two. Viola! It unseals easily.
22. Conditioner Use your hair conditioner to shave your legs. It’s cheaper than shaving cream and leaves your legs really smooth. It’s also a great way to use up the conditioner you bought but didn’t like when you tried it in your hair.
23. Goodbye Fruit Flies To get rid of pesky fruit flies, take a small glass, fill it ½’ with Apple Cider Vinegar and 2 drops of dish washing liquid; mix well. You will find those flies drawn to the cup and gone forever!
24. Get Rid of Ants Put small piles of cornmeal where you see ants. They eat it, take it ‘home,’ can’t digest it so it kills them. It may take a week or so, especially if it rains, but it works and you don’t have the worry about pets or small children being harmed!
25. Dryer Filter Even if you are very diligent about cleaning the lint filter in your dryer it still may be causing you a problem. If you use dryer sheets a waxy build up could be accumulating on the filter causing your dryer to over heat. The solution to this is to clean your filter with with a toothbrush and hot soapy water every 6 months.

“H-hey, Rung,” Rodimus sweated his embarrassment as he leaned in the open arch of Rung’s doorway, fidgeting. His arms protectively covered his stomach as he swayed from heel to heel, “Do you have a minute? I need to speak to you.”
“Rodimus, I’m with a patient, you’ll have to wait.”
“Oh,” the denial appeared to be something Rodimus genuinely wasn’t expecting and he looked surprised to see Pipes was lying on the berth, as if until now Pipes had been invisible, “That’s okay. Pipes, can you come back later?”
YOU INTELLIGENT FUCKERS PROBABLY KNOW THE ONE HESIOD AND OVID USE, THE ONE WHERE EVERY FUCKER HAS KIDS WITH EVERYONE? THIS ISN’T THAT ONE. THIS IS THE EURYNOME ONE, WHICH IS EARLIER AND WAY MORE FUN.
WAY BACK WHEN, EURYNOME, UNIVERSAL MOTHER GODDESS AND BADASS MOTHERFUCKER, APPEARED FROM CHAOS. SHE WAS BUTT-NAKED, BUT SINCE SHE WAS THE ONLY THING IN EXISTENCE, SHE DIDN’T GIVE A FUCK.
EURYNOME DID GIVE A FUCK ABOUT HAVING NOTHING TO STAND ON, SO SHE DID SOME TIDYING UP AND SPLIT THE SEA FROM THE SKY. NOW THINGS WERE LESS MESSY, SHE COULD DANCE ON THE SEA, BECAUSE WHY THE FUCK NOT.
SHE DANCED SO MUCH THAT THE NORTH WIND ROSE UP BEHIND HER, THEN SHE CAUGHT IT AND SQUISHED IT INTO A BIGASS SNAKE BECAUSE SHE WAS SAD AND LONELY.
EURYNOME CONTINUED HER SEXY DANCING UNTIL THE WIND-SNAKE (OPHION) BECAME SUPER HORNY AND THEY FUCKED. EURYNOME GOT PREGGERS AND TURNED INTO A DOVE, BECAUSE LAYING EGGS IS CLEARLY FAR MORE FUN THAN CHILDBIRTH.
SHE LAID ONE MASSIVE EGG AND OPHION CURLED AROUND IT LIKE AN ADORABLY PROTECTIVE FATHER. BUT HE FUCKED UP AND SQUEEZED THE EGG SO HARD IT HATCHED. IS IT A BOY? IS IT A GIRL? NO. IT’S THE ENTIRE FUCKING UNIVERSE. IT WAS A FUCKING BIG EGG OKAY.
PROUD OF ALL THIS UNIVERSE SHIT THEY HAVE MADE, EURYNOME AND OPHION GO AND RULE IN OLYMPUS. OPHION IS A BIT OF A SHITWEASEL THOUGH, AND CLAIMS THAT HE CREATED THE UNIVERSE ON HIS OWN. EURYNOME WON’T TAKE ANY OF THIS SHIT, AND BEATS THE CRAP OUT OF HIM AND BANISHES HIM TO A SHITTY HOLE IN THE GROUND.
“What do you we do?” Emma asked frantically as she circled the nest inside the cave.
licked her lips and she crossed her arms over her chest as if this sort
of situation arose every day. “We wait. You can stop pacing. It’s not
going to make it hatch any faster.”
“Hatch?” Emma’s chin quivered as a horrified look sprouted on her face. “I can’t believe Lily just…just took off!”
well…abandoning the young and defenseless is a rather reoccurring theme
around here,” Regina looked at the dragon egg thoughtfully. “And here I
am ready to care for whatever comes out of that egg.”
you’re going to give me some guilt trip about giving up Henry, you can
save it… and this is not karma or fate…destiny, whatever you fairytale
people call shitty situations,” Emma ranted and continued to circle the
The egg was big enough for a human baby and slightly
speckled. Regina maintained calm, but Emma was about to lose it. “I’m
not going to lecture you about Henry. All I should have done is thank
you for giving him up so I had the joy of raising him. This dragon baby,
however, I’m not so sure I’m willing to commit to eighteen years of
living with an uncontrollable arsonist.”
“Are you serious? I’m
going to kill Lily! How did she…birth….erm… Lay…or squeeze this giant
vagina egg out anyway?” Emma was full of questions; her concerns were
interrupted by a distinct cracking sound. “Oh shit, it’s coming! Where
the hell is grandma?”
“Emma, it’s just a baby…” Regina moved
closed to the egg and examined the hairline crack. A little moving
silhouette was visible inside the egg, and Regina furrowed her eyebrows
as she inspected it, “…I think.”
“Well, Lily was born human. She
only turned all dragony when she got to Storybrooke,” Emma swallowed
hard as her throat went dry.
“With these dragon babies it’s a
50/50 chance of the babe hatching out human or dragon. They can usually
change back and forth right away, but don’t know they’re doing it,”
Regina explained, having much more familiarity with the dragon species
than Emma had.
EXO’s reaction to you surprising him on your anniversary but he forgot
reaction to you surprising them for your anniversary(really nice things
too; nice dinner, buying them the thing they really wanted, ect.) and
they completely forgot. Thank you :]
Thank you for the request! I hope it’s okay :) And also, I’m maybe gonna do some of them where you didn’t forget, but you didn’t surprise him either. ___________________________________
Baekhyun: He couldn’t understand why you were giving him flowers and kissing his cheek until you explained it to him. Your face was telling him that he was being stupid. “Oooh…” he just said, nodding and scratching his neck.
Chanyeol: He kept looking weirdly at you when you put on the hat you got him. “Why are you giving me this hat again?” he asked, his eyebrows furrowed slightly. “Seriously Chanyeol? You don’t know??” you said with your hand on your hip. He crouched a little and widened his eyes. “No..” he said carefully, scared that you would get angry. You just shook your head in disappointment and left the room, which gave him the chance to look at his phone for clues. When he found out why you were giving him the hat, he made a strange, loud and high pitched sound as he ran out the room to find you and apologize.
Chen: The second you told him you two were going to his favorite restaurant, he realized it was your anniversary. He took himself to the head while doing his “waaee” sound, just without the w. He looked at you pleadingly, hoping you would understand that he had forgotten, so he didn’t have to tell you straight up. And he was lucky, because you did understand his signaling but you just laughed. “It’s okay, it was my friend that reminded me as well!” and then he just started laughing.
D.O: He looked up from his tablet, from which he had been watching an anime, his eyes wide and confused. He was clueless. “Haven’t you forgotten something?” you asked him and tapped your foot impatiently. He kept just looking at you, just as confused as before. “No, what?” he asked. “Ugh!” you exclaimed and exited the room while stomping. He thought to himself before realizing what he had forgotten. “Oh crap…”
Kai: “Heeeey Y/N! I’m home!” he shouted from the hall before coming into the kitchen where you were. You were expecting him to have bought something for you since it was your anniversary and because he seemed suspicious earlier. He hid something behind his back and you smiled brightly. “Tadaaa!” he said as he pulled out some tampons from behind his back, his smile wider than ever before. “… What’s that?” you asked, even though you knew what it was. “It’s tampons! You were complaining about me never buying you tampons when you need it so I thought I’d buy you some today!” he exclaimed with a very happy voice.
“Wow Jongin, what a great anniversary gift.” you said sarcastically as you left, leaving him very confused.
Kris: He was eating some cereal when you hit his back, making him spit out the milk he had in his mouth. “What the hell Y/N??” he yells, turning around on his chair. “You forgot, didn’t you?!” you yell back, furrowing your eyebrows. “Forgot what??” he asks while widening his eyes, showing his confusion. “Our anniversary!” you scream in his face.
“You hit me because of that???” he yells, feeling very hurt.
Lay: He is completely blank when you give him the shoes he had wished to get since forever. “What are we celebrating?” he asks, not understanding what the hell is going on. “Yixing! It’s our anniversary! Don’t you remember?” you ask him, tilting your head. He widens his eyes and starts giggling awkwardly. “I’m so sorry baby, I’ll do something special for you!” he says as he leaves to plan something for later at night.
Luhan: He started laughing loudly when you finally told him what was going on. You had prepared a big party for him, all his friends being there to celebrate with you both. “Why are you laughing? You forgot our 2 year anniversary! What the hell Luhan?” you yell at him, having let go of your balloon saying “Happy Anniversary”, so it bumps against the ceiling. “I’m so sorry!” he manages to say, still laughing loudly.
Sehun: He became a little brat when you handed him the present. “What is that?” he asks, not showing any interest in it. “Open it!” you tell him happily.
As he opens it he smacks his lips a few times, showing how bored he is. You try your best to ignore him, knowing he is only doing it to tick you off. “Seriously? Couple shirts?” he asks, furrowing his eyebrows. “Why?” …
“Sehun! It’s out 1 year anniversary.” He still doesn’t get it.
Suho: He actually thought your anniversary was in 2 days, and not today. He had even prepared something for in two days, but when you give him his present he quickly realizes that your anniversary was actually today. He can’t say anything. He froze. $uho.exe stopped working.
Tao: “Hey Tao! When did you ask me out for he first time again?” you ask him, hoping it’ll trick his memory. “Uhh… last year?” he says, not paying attention at all because he’s watching tv. “Yes, but which date?” you ask again, still trying to get him to remember. “God, I don’t know? Was it the 15th of July or something?” He’s still not caring at all. “Yes! And which day is it today??”
“It’s the 15th of July obviously!” he says, not even realizing what it means. “Soooo, it’s our anniversary!” you exclaim happily. “Yeah, good one. You’re so funny. Ha ha.” he nags. …
Xiumin: He looked at his phone to see what time is was, but he ended up noticing the date instead. “The 4th??” he said out loud. “The 4th…” He looked around the room, trying to remember what was special about the 4th. When he finally realized what it meant, he jumped out of bed, and ran to the kitchen to make you some breakfast. He made pancakes, freshly squeezed orange juice, bacon and eggs and much more so when you woke up, he came in with the food for you. “Happy anniversary babe!” he exclaims with a smile. He was very glad he looked at his phone that morning.
