still getting the hang of things

At the start of the year I told myself 2017 would be the year I finally start turning some things around in my life. Three months in and I have a therapist, I’m on some meds that seriously seem to be starting to help, I’ve got a bunch of new friends to hang out with, I’m being more social than I have been in years, and I’m feeling things I haven’t in a long time.

Things aren’t perfect, but the highs are higher and lasting longer than they used to. The lows feel like they’re becoming a little bit more manageable, too. I feel like I’m maybe starting to get somewhere in all of this now, and it feels good. I feel good.

It’s only been three months, I’ve only just started scratching the surface here. There’s still a lot I’d like to do, that I need to do. But, I’m feeling more confident about it then I think I ever have. And it’s nice.

I think 2017 might actually be my year.

anonymous asked:

hi so a boy i went on a date w a few months ago ghosted me n i still like him and a few weeks ago we started talking and he lives 3 hours away n he asked if he could come over this thursday to get high and talk. idk is he coming all the way here to fuck?? i don't wanna ask him and fuck things up bc i rlly like him

tell him ur not looking for a hookup but ur down to hang out !

sometimes you need to accept that yes i may have been a little bit manipulative. yes i worded something in a specific way that would make my friend/fp/SO feel a bit guilty. yes i could have handled that situation in a much better way. yes i am wrong.


OK so keith and lances relationship in this AU ..this is gonna be long so get ready but it starts off when theyre younger:

and wow!!they are friends!!theyre best friends in fact they love hanging out with each other and playing together just being silly kids but then we hit the teens

this is where things get bumpy for them. Theyre still friends and still close(romantic feelings start to bloom),and they have big dreams of being the best dragon hunting duo the worlds ever seen!So they’re finally old enough to start serious dragon training

but it doesnt go all too well for lance……..

hearing that his best friend (and crush) doesnt think he can do the one thing hes been dreaming about since childhood?breaks his heart. And pisses him off

after this they get into a huge fight and lance just…doesnt talk to keith anymore. lance is angry at keith for lying to him, keith is angry at lance for just randomly dropping him without even giving him the chance to explain. 

in the end tho!after lance finds blue and keith finds out they’re able to finally talk and work it out and become friends again :,,) and eventually….eye emoji ..start dating 

more dragon au right here! & here

Sherlock knows its been a rough day at the clinic by the way John climbs the stairs at the end of his shift.  Tonight the footfalls of those steps are slow and heavy.  Sherlock knows it has been a rough day,

He pushes his chair back from the table, leaving his experiment behind and gets up to immediately start water for tea. He can hear John sigh as he enters the flat and shrugs out of his coat hanging it on the hook,  

He listens as John toes off his shoes and pads towards the kitchen. Sherlock’s back still to him and it’s when Sherlock is reaching for the mugs that John wraps his arms around Sherlock’s waist and tips up on his toes to press a kiss on the nape of his neck.

“It’s the little things like this that I love about you.  The fact that you can tell before I even make it into the flat that I need a hot cuppa.”

Sherlock turns around in John’s arms and presses a soft kiss to his lips.  “It’s a husband’s job to know these things.”

John chuckles, “say that again, I’m still trying to get used to that word.”

“Husband.” Sherlock repeats with a smile on his lips.

My experiences with the signs

Aries: My best friends tend to be Aries but somehow the friendships end as easily as they started. Supportive and always down to hang out. If they aren’t loud, they still have a presence. Likes to appear confident no matter their self-esteem. Really determined to get what they want.

Taurus: Low-maintenance friendships. The friend that’s always there even if you haven’t spoken in months or years. Does their own thing and cares about their own comfort above all else. Actually chill but can get really mad. Into DIY/domestic hobbies.

Gemini: Almost too talkative for their own good. Says dumb stuff but is actually pretty smart. Problems with being genuine because they’re so scattered. Just wants to be well-liked.

Cancer: MOODY. If you can put up with their ups and downs, they’ll keep you close. Clingy but somehow also pushes you away. Wants to appear tough, but is actually really soft on the inside (like a crab!). If they’re out of their shell, they can be super goofy. Doesn’t let anything go.

Leo: Has a bunch of friends and hobbies to keep them busy. Likes to make people laugh. Ambitious individuals. People always know who they are. Probably going to end up famous.

Virgo: Another sign I tend to be best friends with. But they have no problem cutting you off and not giving you a reason why. Hard-working and always looks put-together. You can hang out with them all the time and still know nothing about them.

Libra: There’s probably a Libra talking about you behind your back right now. But it’s not always in a malicious way. Likes being social but can be cold. Uses words to manipulate things in their favor. Says they hate drama but always ends up in the middle of it.

Scorpio: You definitely want a Scorpio on your side. You’re either everything or nothing to them. If a Scorpio cares about you, they’ll do anything for you. If they don’t, they’ll have no problem being the bad guy. Doesn’t trust anyone. Always has a plan. Behind their intensity, they have a good sense of humor. 

Sagittarius: Obnoxious and likes it that way. Bold personality that says whatever’s on their mind even if it makes others uncomfortable. Loves to party and get drunk. Serious when it comes to school and work.

Capricorn: Hard on themselves for no apparent reason. Often doubts what people say. Realistic on the edge of pessimistic. Occasionally emotional. Has good taste and sense of style.

Aquarius: True friends. I almost always get along with Aquariuses. Hilarious and smart but doesn’t even try to be. Quiet but good conversation-holders. Minds their own business and expects others to. Sometimes low-key shady though. They’re scarily good at lying. Has a weird variety of interests.

Pisces: Always passionate about something. Big dreamers. Stabs you in the back but you won’t even see it coming because they put on a friendly front. Highly sensitive and feels victimized even if they are responsible. Messy in every aspect but considers it artistic.  

Two sides of the same coin

Arthur Pendragon & Merlin Emrys
The once and Future King & the greatest Sorcerer to ever walk the Earth

The last days mark my re-obsession with Merlin and here we are, I drew something. Funny to compare this accidental piece with the old one of these two (klick) from 2013.

Children of Thanatos

Requested by anonymous.

  • Children of Thanatos both inherit the power to turn invisible as their father’s blackish wings.
  • They can also teleport directly to the underworld.
  • Which Nico finds annoying as he still needs to travel all the way to NYC or LA.
  • He’s the prince of the Underworld for Hades’ sake and even he doesn’t have that power.
  • On their sixteenth birthday they receive a black iPad from their father, which they can use to video call him.
  • They also get the chance to ‘intern’ with him and go reap souls with him.
  • Most of them really enjoy that bonding time with him.
  • Like their father, they’re extremely loyal and just. They know very well that some things have to be done and can’t be avoided. 
  • They’re one of those people that finish their book report the day it is assigned and gives everyone else anxiety about still having to finish it even though they still have like three weeks to finish it. 
  • They really like hanging out at empty graveyards.
  • It is one of the only places where no one is dying.
  • A lot of them wear sunglasses in public, even when it’s raining, so the aura’s around the people who are about to die aren’t as obvious.
  • Just because they know it is inevitable or supposed to happen doesn’t mean they need to like it. 
  • Whenever one of their demigod siblings is supposed to die, they have made a pact to not tell that sibling. 
  • They know from experience that knowing is one of the worst burdens of all.


  • He is super excited to have them as a friend, he has so many ideas for pranks using their abilities. 
  • especially on Hanzo…..Always on Hanzo.
  • The new recruit will find the tallest wall they can and sit up as high as they can. Genji then tries to wall climb as high as he can to them. He claims it’s for ninja training but its obvious he just thinks its a fun game. 
  • They have confused a lot of people by playing this game in public


  • He is still shocked by the entire thing, but he gets used to it after a while. Now he’ll just enter a room see them chilling on the ceiling and will casually ask about the weather up there
  • The recruit will absolutely hang upside down o the ceiling and steal Jesse’s hat when he enters a room. 
  • It leads to some interesting chases around the base when they won’t give it back. Especially since McCree can’t, you know, climb the walls


  • Oh god tag, so much tag. And oh boy are those games interesting. 
  • One of them is blinking through time, and the other is running along the walls. 
  • Jack is constantly yelling at them to stop, but they never do
  • that recruit better have endless energy, cause tracer is always up for a game and she loves to play around
  • thank god the recruit can hide up in the ceiling corners cause its the only way to escape the speedster
  • when Tracers energy is finally toned down for the day they just chill and watch T.V or read.

The Not-So-Glamorous Side of Being an Angel

-eating way to much or not enough because you really can’t tell how much this body needs
-a l w a y s t h i r s t y
-“what do you mean I have to wash the vessel AGAIN I just did that 36 hours ago”
-never really adjusting to having to use the bathroom regularly
-saying something that only divines/angels would understand around your human friends and they don’t get it and it makes things awkward
-“should I tell this friend who I really am I mean we’ve been friends for like 10 years and we trust each other with our lives but STILL”
-seeing fictional angels being depicted or described completely inaccurately and getting unreasonably frustrated
-being super clumsy because you can’t quite get the hang of piloting this dumb human body
-lying awake at 3am because you just feel so lonely and empty inside
-“what if my brain is just making all this up and fabricating memories because I subconsciously want to be Different and Special”
-being afraid to have children because you’ve heard nephilim described as “abominations” and you fear you won’t be able to protect them
-running into someone irl and just KNOWING they’re Angelic too and “omg do they realize I am too do they even realize /they/ are wHAT IF THEY KNOW ME”
-being Fallen and wondering if you actually are the bad guy of your story
-having a disability or chronic illness and wondering if it’s because your vessel can’t handle your powerful soul

Just…being an angel isn’t all fun and games.

instead of bruce constantly running off in the middle of batcat dates to go dish out some vigilante justice, imagine selina constantly blowing bruce off to hang out with the gotham rogues and each time he gets more and more frustrated


bruce: hey selina we still on for tonight?
selina: sorry bruce i promised i’d drive harley to airport. rain check?
bruce: sure don’t worry about it


bruce: i reserved a table for 7pm tonight and-
selina: ooooh sorry, bruce, i totally forgot. eddie just got a new cat and that man CANNOT look after another living thing without intervention.
bruce: another rain check?


bruce: thought i’d check before i actually booked the table this time and-
selina: about that… tonight’s the rogues christmas party. i said i’d go so ivy wasn’t bored out of her mind, hope it’s ok that we-
bruce: ….it’s fine.


bruce: should i even ask if we can-?
selina: no can do bruce, i have a lunch date with freeze and i wanna see how he’s doing-
bruce: [hangs up]


bruce: alright selina for the last time, are you really serious about dating me? or are all these excuses just your way of saying you want to break up? let me guess, poker night with two-face and penguin?
selina: …….. i was gunna say i’m free at 9pm but if you’re gunna be like that… 

Cecilos Week, Day 2: Future/Past

i have a lot of feelings about the concept of cecil and carlos getting through all of night vale’s weirdness and constant threats despite all the odds, and becoming an old married couple together. carlos spending his time still tinkering away with sciencey gadgets but with more naps inbetween, and cecil maybe getting a lil grumpier and sends in opinionated e-mails to the radio station about how things were done Back In His Day, but overall still has a lot of fondness for the town; most of his focus is now on his creative hobbies, namely his watercolours and writing slash fic, so not much has changed!

the two of them still like to hang out at the bowling alley at the weekends, even if they’re not all that good at playing anymore, and they are still found regularly holding hands and flirting with each other like two awkward teenagers on a first date after all these years together ❤︎

i ran out of time/energy and couldnt colour this, but i promise that is NOT an average coloured polo shirt cecil is wearing ;D he still has his Trademark Fashion no matter how old he gets. as a wee bonus:

Oh Captain!// Steve Rogers x Reader (P2)

Pairing: Steve Rogers x POC Reader
Word Count: 2k+
Warning: Language, fluff, smut, unprotected sex (WRAP YOUR WANG BEFORE YOU BANG), slight dry humping, bit of dirty talk, a little Sub!Steve…if you squint and cock your head at a 45 degree angle.
Summary: Steve bares all, in more ways than one. How is anyone supposed to resist this god-forsakenly beautiful man? You don’t; you give into temptation and enjoy the ride. Sometimes Steve’s smart mouth gets him into trouble. Bonus: Bruce is so cute when he’s embarrassed.

A/N: I’m still getting the hang of this smut thing so pls bear with me. Idk why tf I’m so damn shy about writing it when I’m sinful as hell irl.  Also bless you @emilyevanston for reminding me that Steve is so much more than just Captain America. Sorry this took so long, hopefully the fic makes up for the long ass wait! Feedback is absolutely appreciated.

“But Mom!”

Chloe Beale disappeared on the face of the earth right after graduation. Her Bellas thought she’d be the one to initiate all their reunions; not their other captain - Beca Mitchell.

Their resident DJ was reluctant about the whole hanging out thing but she’d rather be the one organising it than let Fat Amy do the planning. Who wants to see crocodiles and dingoes every year? Clearly, not her!

Also, if she was being honest, she was hoping someday Chloe would show up to one of their reunions.

She still has the redhead’s number and e-mail so a month before the first week of the summer, she’d send out the group e-mail to everyone containing their itenerary: where to, when to get there, how much they’d spend (in estimate), where they’d stay, and the other activities they’d be doing once they’re all together.

The brunette never got a reply from the redhead though. This year, the Bellas decided that Maldives would be the place they’d go to.

“Legacy, you really think Maldives would be the right place for us?” the brunette asks Emily.

“Everyone thinks so! Maybe this year, she’ll show up.” Legacy gives her a goofy grin.

After a year of working in Residual Heat, Beca was asked by one of the biggest music production company to come work for them in LA. Needless to say she was ecstatic and took the offer immediately.

She promised Chloe she wouldn’t LA go. So she made the promise happen.

As soon as Emily finished college, she asked her to be one of her artists and just like her Aca-Mom, she didn’t let LA go.

Stacie works with NASA now.. well she basically runs the whole place. Fat Amy’s had a billion jobs since she graduated but she’s currently a tour guide in Paris (this girl has tons of money). Flo was never deported and is now running her own organization supporting puerto ricans in New York. Lily opened up a Ninja Academy (which really was just a parkour gym) and has 15 branches all over the US. Jessica and Ashley are both starring in their own broadway shows. Cynthia Rose works as a song writer in one of the branches of Beca’s label in Maine. Aubrey.. well they didn’t talk much after Chloe left.

So she sent out the e-mail as soon as she got Emily’s ‘approval’. She got her 9 yeses immediately, including Emily’s.

When there was a 9th 'ding’ from her laptop, Beca hurriedly opens her mail.

'Message Sending Failure: this e-mail address is no longer active’

“Damn it, Chlo.”

It was already the first week of summer and Beca was the first one in Maldives. Emily had to stay with Benji for one more day before flying out.

The rest of the Bellas were set to arrive the next day. Beca just wanted some time to herself. It was already sunset but she still decided to put on some sun screen if she doesn’t want to end up looking like a tomato.

She was just sitting by the shore, watching the sunset and writing some lyrics when a beach ball hit her face.

She growls at the interruption but was met by a giggle.

“You got hit by the ball!” The little boy giggles again.

Beca puts up her sunglasses and stares at the boy, “You think that’s funny, kid?” She was ready to attack him if it weren’t for his kind blue eyes and light red hair.

“You’re grumpy.” The kid knitted his eyebrows together.

As much as she hated taking care of kids, Beca couldn’t help but ask him. “Okay kid, where’s your mom?”

“I dunno.” The kid shrugs.

“Okay what’s your name?”

“What’s your name?” The boy crosses his arms.

Beca finds it cute how grumpy this child is. First, he didn’t even apologize. Now he has the guts to act all badass when he was the one who hit her??? That sounded a lot like… yeahp. This could be the tiny version of her if only he had a darker shade of blue eyes and brunette hair.

“I’m Beca. Now will you tell me your name so I can get you back to your mother?”

After much reluctance the boy answers, “I’m Charles, momma calls me Charlie.”

“Now that wasn’t so bad! Come on let’s go look for your mom.”

Beca starts packing her stuff and wore her clothes over her swim suit. When the boy doesn’t move, she rolls her eyes before turning to him with a smile. “Okay Charlie, what do you want now?”

“I want milkshake, fries and burger!!!” The boys says, still with his arms crossed.

“You could at least say please young man!” Beca glares at him. “Come on, fine!”

And that was it. The boy came running towards her and hugging her as if they knew each other since he was born.

'Who knew food was the only way to get you to like me?’ Beca thinks to herself. 'Just like me, huh?’

The two walked to the floating restaurant and Beca got them both burger and fries. She got herself a beer and Charlie his milkshake.

“Why are you grumpy?” Charlie asks while munching on his fries.

Beca smiles st the question, “I’m sorry, buddy. Just the way I am, I guess. How old are you?”

“I’m five.” He puts his hand up to show the number four and Beca fixes it for him.

“That’s five, dude.” She chuckles.

The boy smiles at her, “Are you working?”

“What? Is this 20Qs? You’re too young to know that game.” Beca smirks remembering a certain redhead who loved this game.

Charlie glares at her, “Just answer itttt!” he whines.

Damn, this kid is toooooo spoiled. His mom must be having a hard time so she let him go.

“I’m a DJ and a music producer.” Beca answers casually after sipping her beer when a phone started ringing.

Beca looks around for her phone only to find that it wasn’t hers that was ringing. She shot a look towards the boy who was happily eating his burger. “Charlie, you have a phone???”

Acting all innocent, “Um… i forgot?”

Beca rolls her eyes at the boys antics, “Well go pick it up!”

Charlie picks up the phone and puts a good distance between the device and his ear. “CHARLIE WHERE THE HELL ARE YOU YOUNG MAN?” The two wince at the voice.

“I’m sorry momma! I got lost… I’m eating at the restaurant with the super cool dj and music par… praduder.”

“Producer.” Beca corrects the kid with a smirk.


“But mooooooooom!!!” The boy whines.

Then the line was cut off. The boy looked like he was about to pee in his pants but instead he ran off before Beca could even stop him.

She tried running after the boy but was left behind so she decided to go back to the restaurant and get the kids phone.

Seriously, what five year old would own an iPhone 5? Well at least it’s not the one with the the thumbprint thingy?

She slides it open. “Thank god there’s no passcode.” She browses through call log and saw 'Mom’ on it. She got the number and dialled it on her phone.

“Hello? I’m so sorry about Charlie but this is the DJ he was with. I lost your kid. He ran as soon as you put down the phone but I’m looking for him right now.”

When she only heard silence from the other end of the line..

“Hello? Um. Okay please please don’t hate me. I’ll look for him I promise.” Beca hangs up before she could even hear the response…

“B.. Beca?”

Ok but about that last reblog, just Aaron and Alexander as college roommates and one day Aaron mentions a crush he has on a TA for one of his classes, Theodosia Prevost, and Alexander is just like, oh, hey, a girl Eliza in my class knows Theodosia and they are always hanging out. We should do a double date with them. And Aaron tells him no but of course Alexander asks Eliza anyway, and Eliza says yes.

So Alexander goes back to the dorm and tells Aaron and Aaron is real pissed at first cause he isn’t ready for a date but Alexander drags him to the restaurant anyway cause hey, if Aaron isn’t excited, Alexander still wants to get to know Eliza.

But then yeah the thing happens where throughout the day Aaron slowly realizes that Eliza and Theodosia are dating, but Alexander is still oblivious. So Aaron had to subtly text Alexander that they made a mistake. But Alex doesn’t check his phone, so Aaron just has to say really loudly, “how long have you two been dating?” to Theodosia and Eliza and Alex practically spits out his drink.

And then Theodosia and Eliza ask about Alex and Aaron’s relationship and Aaron is about to come clean but Alex just reaches over and takes his hand and starts lying and Aaron has to go along with the ridiculous story.

Afterwards Aaron and Alex think, okay, whatever, it was one awkward experience but they won’t have to worry about it again. But then the next day all of their friends are coming up to them and yelling and asking why they never told any of them that they are dating.

Cue fake relationship trope and slowly falling in love.
