takes a lot of work to be lazy

Conjuring Expectations

[When I speak of conjuring here, I’m using it as an umbrella term to describe any act of pairing a spirit with a physical person. It doesn’t matter what your method is, if it is a prebound spirit, how often you do it, or the price you charge.]

So, offering these services has recently become a bit…. trendy.

Personally I find this disconcerting. We like to stress that taking home a spirit can be a lifelong responsibility, so being the shop should be even more of a responsibility. It isn’t something to take lightly, once you offer the service you’ve taken on a huge responsibility towards your customer. The points in this post are a few, not all, of the things you should keep in mind if you wish to start conjuring for others.

Other posts on the subject, please give these a read! x / x

[These are my own standards. Take them as you will. If you don’t care if a shop meets certain standards in this post then that’s your opinion, although I recommend having high standards for the shops you work with. If you don’t think something in here should apply to you, actually meditate and do some shadow work on why this is, laziness and impatience is not a good reason to ignore something.]

Don’t do it on a whim.

Seriously. Don’t conjure on a whim. This isn’t something to start up because you’re bored one night. There are a lot of things you have to consider when you do this, and it’s going to take more than a couple weeks to make sure you’re not making a hasty decision. Honestly, I’d put the minimum decision period at…. Six months. Does this seem long? Good. It gives you half a year to see if you’ll back out and any other thoughts which arise. If you’re too impatient to wait that long then sorry to say but you’re making a rash decision.

Know why you are offering your services.

Seriously…. Why do you want to do this? I’m not saying to think about it for a day. I’m saying to do serous shadow work to get an honest answer about why you are doing this. Is it the money? The ego boost? To look cool? A white knight mentality towards spirits? None of these are good reasons. Make sure the reason you’re doing this is something you can truthfully tell your customers.

Practice frequently

That six month decision period? You should already know how to perform your services by then and should spend that six months practicing consistently. Daily, if possible. Your consistency here will show you how you will fare when you must do it on a consistent basis for customers. It’ll also show you how you’ll handle things when you hit a fallow period or block in your life. If you can’t keep up with the consistency now then you won’t later either, and likely you’re not ready.

Don’t learn to conjure just to open a shop

This ties in with knowing why you’re offering the service. If your motivation for learning the skill (or whatever other method you use; remember that it is an umbrella term in this post) is purely to open a shop later on, reconsider things. If conjuring isn’t something you honestly love to do now, you’ll hate it even more later down the road and shouldn’t be doing it for others. Have reasons for yourself, not for others.

Know your laws

Don’t open shop without knowing the legalities. Know both the legalities of offering metaphysical services/products and of selling in general. These include both your state and federal laws (if in the US, otherwise you’ll have to figure out on your own which laws apply to you), as well as the laws which apply to your individual customers’ locations. You need to read through the laws yourself, not just google the answers, otherwise you won’t get the complete picture. Also keep in mind that it isn’t any other shop’s responsibility to tell you what the laws say. You need to figure it out on your own. And even if your services are free, there are still legal issues pertaining to you within the US. Read up because the law isn’t going to be on your side.

You need to be a legal adult

There’s a very good reason reputable shops don’t sell to people who aren’t legal adults. It’s called legality. But your services are free? Well consider that when witches, pagans, etc refuse to teach minors, this is also for very good legal reasons. If you aren’t old enough to buy from a reputable shop then you aren’t old enough to offer your service. Anyone can practice spirit work but you need to be an adult to offer services. That’s just the way it works. If you can’t bear to practice spirit work without opening a shop then you need to reconsider why you are opening a shop, because that sure sets off some red flags. Teenagers don’t have a good grasp on long term consequences.

Another part of this is maturity. Not only is the estimate for the point of full brain maturity past your teenage years, but a teenager simply doesn’t have the life experience an adult has. If you’re still in high school, regardless of whether or not you’ve already turned 18, you do not have the life experiences that give you heaping loads of personal qualities and maturity. When high school ends life starts throwing at you a ballsack of responsibilities and worries: financials, living situations, college, jobs, your future in general. Do some teenagers have to deal with these things? Sure, but there’s no way of knowing if you legitimately have the maturity from handling these things or if you just think you do. High school environment does not give you the same maturity an adult environment will.

Look, go anywhere in public and you can immediately differentiate the group of high schoolers from young college kids. There’s a certain bit of immaturity in high schoolers and teenagers that doesn’t leave until you’ve graduated. If you want to argue that you’re not like those other teenagers then that’s a bit of a red flag towards the opposite. There’s a trend with teenagers to think you know the world when you really don’t. You’ll have a different perspective on your high school years later on.

Anyone can do spirit work. But a shop’s services, and by extension running a shop, is not an entitlement and can indeed be limited by factors like legal age.

Know the community

I’m not talking about tumblr. I’m talking about the wider community. Whether or not you agree with other sides, you need to be familiar with them to be well-rounded. Furthermore, your customers will not all be coming from the exact perspective as yourself, so you need to understand your customers who have learned from different places.

Conjure for more than your friends

Your customers will not be limited to your friend group. Conjuring for your friends is easy because you’re familiar, and likely compatible, with their energy. You know their personalities for when finding them spirits. This applies to doing bindings, too. You absolutely need to have a large portion of your pre-shop practice to be for people (preferably strangers who will give honest opinions from a point of experience) other than your close friends, otherwise you’re not really proving that you can do it for others.

Know a wide range of energies

People tend to hang around similar energies. Even if you stay purely on tumblr, you will come across many of the same viewpoints and energies. Explore outside of that circle. Meet a variety of people with a variety of ideas and energies. You must be able to work with the entire spectrum of people to be able to offer this service. And this isn’t something you can do in a day, it takes years to become familiar enough with so many energies to be prepared for this. And that’s… that’s sort of the point. You need all that experience. Also remember that you’re going to need to see the inner core of energy, not just what someone gives off on the outside. It’s happened to myself plenty of times where a conjurer doesn’t look on more than the outer shell of energy, and thus their work is mediocre and the relationship doesn’t last.

Know a wide range of spirits

This is INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT. You only want to offer white arts dragons? Fantastic, but you need to be familiar with more than that. Cute fluffy spirits aren’t the ones who will wreck you. You absolutely need to be familiar with the darkest, most dangerous spirits if you want to keep your customers protected from them. And… no, I’m not talking about hellhounds and demons. If that’s the most dangerous spirits you know, then you may need more experience. Tricksters and shapeshifters are another issue. When they are malicious, you’ll need to be a master to recognize them.

It will be an issue even if you insist they won’t approach you. There are people in this community who have the worst kind of spirits looking for any opening to harm them, and shops are a huge opportunity. These people might not tell you about it or might not even know, but you need to be able to recognize these spirits regardless, then be skilled enough to deal with them.

Dangerous spirits will not always look like monsters. Tricksters can reach the point of mimicking a spirit’s exact personality, energy, soul energy, even some memories. Spirits who are legitimately from safe species may be unsafe. For example, I had a spirit from one of the safest species I know approach my own shop. Nothing turned up through every one of my safety measures with checking them, but one of my other measures is to seek out others who have known spirits and interview them. Learned from a relative that this spirit had murdered their entire immediate family (not extended, which is why there were others who could tell me about it) then undergone surgery to entirely remove the memories from their energy so no one could know. And I was informed that their patterns suggested they’d turn similarly violent again and would enjoy every second of it. Yikes. Those situations happen more frequently than you’d expect and you’d better be able to recognize them.

Have large experience in spirit work not involving shops

You are not reselling another shop’s vessel, you are working with your own spirits. Have several years of experience in working with non-shop spirits. Ideally this would be consistent and purposeful. I’m not talking about speaking to one ghost who lived inside your house, I’m talking about purposely meeting new spirits and learning about them. Have experience in discerning their safety on the run. If never in those years do you encounter a malicious spirit, then…. Uh. That does not give much confidence in your discernment.

Have a master safety process

I’m not saying expert. I’m saying master. The worst of the worst spirits do come to shops looking for trouble and you need to see through their hardest disguises. Just talking to them and learning about them is not enough because they will readily put on sweet faces. Like I said, there are people in this very community who have these spirits after them. It’s your responsibility to not be a wide opening.

Offering a spirit shouldn’t be as simple as meeting a spirit on the street who likes humans then offering them.

Practice discernment. Lots of it. More discernment that you’ve ever practiced before.

People are trusting that you have absolute perfect discernment. You need to have foolproof discernment that comes from a large variety of methods. And this is something that you cannot learn immediately, it comes through years of practice. I’m saying that you need years of practice and they need to involve heavy discernment. I’m gonna be blunt, your spirits had better not be purely in your head and you should have people outside your immediate friend group (as they are very biased in your favor) verify them. If you’re gonna hit a “gosh is this all really real maybe I had better check” period, it had better not be while people are already trusting you to know your discernment.

Be emotionally stable and handle your mental illness

I am not saying you cannot practice spirit work with mental illness. Many of us do it and more shop owners than you know have serious diagnoses. But you need to have a firm handle on it. You absolutely have to know when you can and cannot practice and how to involve discernment. Say you suffer from hallucinations? Plenty of spirit workers have the same and they are fully capable despite it. They learn how to discern a spirit from a hallucination and their work is lovely. But you need expert discernment in telling your mental illness apart from spirit work and not letting it influence your senses, otherwise you are not practicing adequate discernment. Imagine your mental illness like a hurdle. It’s unfortunate that some people have more hurdles than others, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have to overcome it like every other hurdle.

Emotional stability comes into play because emotions have a heavy impact of discernment. From confirmation bias to letting your emotions show you what you want to see, you can’t be slacking by letting emotions get in the way of discernment, proper safety checks, and your senses in general. You also cannot be making emotionally fueled decisions. Emotionally fueled decisions almost always throw discernment completely down the drain. More than that, they hurt people very often. There have been patterns in this community for years of people getting hurt because emotionally fueled decisions are made and real discernment is left to the side. “You’re abusing your spirits!” is the most common, said to both shops and regular spirit workers. Remember, confirmation bias is a definite thing (if you want the answer to be one thing, even subconsciously, that’s what you’re going to see because you’re biased in favor of that interpretation of the evidence) and your senses can and will be altered based on a heavy wanting for a particular outcome.

Related to this is that if you are constantly involved in drama or making drama-fueled decisions, you are probably not a good person to be running a shop.

Be prepared for this to affect you later in life

I don’t know what you want to do with your life, but chances are that you’re going to need to impress people. Employers, schools, anyone you want to sign a deal with. Sorry guys, but internet privacy doesn’t exist. Your privacy only exists until it is legal to sell your history and information to potential employers and etc groups and individuals. Imagine that everyone will be able to see you doing this. How is it going to affect you later? Don’t try and say that you won’t let it happen, just imagine that it will happen because it’s very easy to slip. Be fully prepared for the responsibility of others finding out about it.

Remember… some people may just think you’re weird, but others will see it as a malicious scam, preying on the mentally ill, or even a sign of serious mental instability. Don’t take it lightly, realize the full effect of others finding out and it affecting your life. If it causes anxiety now, imagine how it will feel if it happens. You must accept this possibility before continuing.

Have an understanding of the responsibility

This is one of the biggest responsibilities you could take. You are putting yourself in charge of someone’s safety, spiritual progress, and more. Just…. Do not take this lightly. Seriously.

Things that can Destroy your Motivation

1. Not having goals. You can’t reach your goals if you don’t know what they are.

2. Choosing goals that don’t inspire you. You won’t be able to keep on going if the prize at the end doesn’t really matter to you.

3. Expecting immediate results. Anything worthwhile is a battle and a struggle. It takes times and effort to bring about a change.

4. Lack of support. We all need someone to believe in us and to be our cheerleader when we start to feel discouraged.

5. Not believing in yourself. As Henry Ford so wisely said: “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.”

6. Feeling bored. Most success involves a lot of humdrum work, and repeatedly doing the same kind of stuff. But each day brings you closer to achieving what you want.

7. Inaction and laziness. You have to work the plan before the plan will work … and dreams are only dream till you turn your thoughts to actions. Also, it’s crucially important that you manage your time well, and you don’t get distracted or procrastinate.

8. Being around negative people. There are plenty of people who only see the flaws, and whose eyes are on the problems, and the absence of solutions. If you hang out with them, you will lose your zest and passion, and your positive outlook will soon be undermined.

9. Comparing yourself to others. We each are individuals, and we start from different places; we all face our challenges, and work at different rates. Remember “it’s your journey”. Be patient with yourself.

10. Encountering setbacks. No matter how great your plans, or your level of commitment, you’re bound to face some setbacks and encounter obstacles. That’s a normal part of growth – just keep going when life’s tough.

re: artists working themselves to death and why the HECK is this the standard

the entire thing about the death of an animator in japan due to overwork is exactly why i am completing chapter 1 of 1989nk in months, not weeks.

this has been one of my biggest fears getting this project off the ground. the standard for work output by artists is set so fucking high nowadays. we’re ALL expected to perform at the level of the outlier. (This was apparent to me as early as in Art School, when we were all treated like we were absolutely fucking useless for not being able to do an entire 5 minute 3D animated film all by ourselves like that one guy in our program.) Artists who overwork themselves and overachieve (whether by perceived necessity or choice) unfortunately create an illusion to consumers and employers that their level of performance should be the standard. It creates a nasty cycle, because more artists start trying to adhere to that standard and it gets passed on and on and on.

i’m honestly fully expecting my deadline for chapter one to be too long of a wait for some people. “This other artist got their 30-40 page comic done in 6-8 weeks, why is yours going to take 6-8 months?”

listen, its because i don’t want to not be able to draw for the rest of my life at 30. I dont want to destroy my wrist and make myself ill and make the quality of the comic suffer because i have to live up to the vicious overwork cycle that’s completely blanketed the digital art/media/comics scene. If another artist takes only a few weeks to do their comic? Fine, but you know, theyre most likely suffering BADLY for it, and even THEY shouldn’t have to do that. They really, really shouldn’t. Overwork and over achievement frankly needs to stop being praised and heralded, because its not only extremely damaging to the artist themselves, but it also creates that cycle i mentioned.

Trying to keep up with the immense production quantity and speed that other artists seem to be doing has never, ever been possible for me and I’ve occasionally tried, only to seriously break myself. Even the amount of work I do is considered a lot by some, so then how is it that to me, it always feels like chicken scratch? It feels like i’m STILL not doing enough, ever. Even with the amount of work I do, I still feel like a lazy sack of shit and feel crippling guilt when I’m taking a break to do anything else but draw. I constantly feel like I’m losing the race. That isn’t right. That isn’t fair.

i just really, really hope that people don’t see my production time for 1989nk and go “that’s too long, artists don’t take THAT long to do work” because. well. honestly, they should.

Ballet together. 🎶 I was trying to focus on the muscles but idk, Victor ended up pretty slim..

Ou dilly this took me long (sorry I was sooo lazy)… But now I have my new laptop and a hole file of line art waiting to be finished 😏 I will try to work on them. (University entrance exams are 101 days away so that takes a lot of my time too… We’ll see how I’ll manage.)

Skelebros Relationship Headcanons

I’ve been listening to “Here Comes A Thought” from Steven’s Universe for a while and it has thoroughly infested my brain. And we’ve had a lot of angst on my blogs for a while now, so have some fluff.


UT!Sans
- Blushes whenever you kiss his forehead. Any sweet and affectionate gesture makes him turn bright blue.

- At the first party you two go to, he asks you to dance. He’s all fumbly and awkward, and he steps on your toes a lot.

- The first little gift you get from him is a card. One of those friendship Hallmark cards you get at the convenience store, It’s got a pun on it. He put a sweet heart candy in it.

- He takes you window shopping a lot. You two don’t always have the money to buy everything you like, but he likes seeing how you get all excited when you see something cool.

- The first argument you two have is probably over something minor in hindsight, but seemed like a big deal then. Sans leaves for a while to cool down. And when he comes back and the two of you make up, he kisses your cheek.

UT!Papyrus

- He’s always singing or humming, but if you ask him to sing something for you, he starts blushing and tripping over the words.

- When you have a nightmare, he holds you in his lap and rocks you back and forth, humming softly to you until you fall back asleep.

- He usually tries to go all out when he gets you presents, but he’s bad at shopping for other people. But while he might not find the perfect thing, all of his gifts are thought-out and full of love.

- He’s a surprisingly good dancer, as you find out when you go to a formal party. He can waltz, and you spend the night dancing with him, but since he’s so tall he quite literally sweeps you off your feet a few times when you turn.

- He loves giving you piggy-back rides, and he loves to mess with you during them. Sometimes he’ll pretend you’re really heavy and that he’s going to fall over. One time he did, but instead of dropping you or squishing you, he just fell on his face rather than risk hurting you.

US!Sans

- He loves you so much and he wants you to know that. He tells you that he loves you constantly. Sometimes when you’re just sitting on the couch watching some show, he’ll just randomly say “I love you”

- He likes just sort of laying next to you. Not doing anything in particular, just laying near you and maybe holding hands holding hands.

-  When the two of you are sitting around, sometimes he bumps his feet against yours. No real reason, he just likes being near you. And it makes him happy, when he reminds himself that you’re actually there. He still can’t believe you’re actually here with him.

- He likes playing with your hair, no matter how short or long it is. Sometimes he just pets you. He likes scruffing up your hair, it makes you look cute when you’re all fluffed up.

- A lot of the ways he shows he cares is by making sure you take care of yourself. Sometimes he just drags you away from work to sit on the floor and do a puzzle, sometimes he makes you a snack. A lot of the times he just talks to you. About anything or nothing, or just whatever.

US!Papyrus

- A lot of the time you spend together, he just looks at you. Not touching you or talking to you, just looking at you with this look of awe on his face.

- He’s usually pretty lazy, but when you’re together, sometimes he’ll just pick you up. No reason. He’ll just swing you into a bridal style carry and kiss you.

- When he comes home from Muffet’s he always has a bag of food with him. It’s always your favorite. No matter how unhealthy, or uncommon. Even if you know for a fact Muffet doesn’t cook that dish.

- Sometimes if there’s only one chair left in the room, he’ll try to sit next to you on the same chair. Even if it’s way too small, he’ll give it a shot. It doesn’t help that no matter what sort of pretzel you two make all smooshed together, he usually falls asleep.

- He lets you win in Mario Kart, and Smash Bros.

UF!Sans

- He likes holding your hand, just running his thumb over your knuckles. Sometimes he’ll sneak a quick kiss onto the back of your hand.

- The first date you two go on is actually a picnic. He brought Grillby’s to eat of course, but the two of you sit in Waterfall and munch on fries. You get distracted, but then you feel something being put on your head. It’s a crown of echo flowers.

- Sans is actually pretty good at fixing things. If you  just have to be your knight in shining armor.” need your car’s oil changed, he can do it. He tries to teach you how to change a tire, but eventually he just gives up and throws an arm around your shoulder. “well, we tried. guess i’ll just have to be your handy-man”

- Getting him to do anything romantic in public is hard, but sometimes when people are distracted, he’ll give you a quick smooch.

- When Christmas comes along, you discover his one true weakness. He can’t tie a ribbon for anything. He actually ties his hand into the bow, and you have to untangle him. He does manage to tie a ribbon you saved from Valentine’s day around your wrist. It says “I <3 you”

UF!Papyrus

- He’s likes putting his head on your shoulder. Just laying his head there and closing his eyes.

- When you’re feeling down about yourself, he’ll sit next to you. And then he’ll list everything good about you. Everything.

-The first time you see him relax is when you’re watching some mind-numbing game show on T.V. He slowly just melts into the couch, and he scoots closer to you. Eventually he just leans his head on your shoulder and sighs happily.

- He love writing love notes to you. Pretty much every week you find a new note, with a flower laid on top of it. The house is pretty much overrun with flowers by now. He buys you bouquet after bouquet of flowers.

- He puts a lot of effort into his cooking. He tries to learn new dishes, especially ones you like. He makes you sweets, or hearty, healthy meals. His favorite thing is sharing a meal with you, even if it’s just a ham sandwich.

SF!Sans

- When you fall asleep on the couch, you always wake up to him laying next to you, curled into your side.

- He steals the blankets all the time, but sometimes. Only sometimes. He lets you take out one of the really old, really warm quilts he’s had forever. He likes showing you all the different patterns, and even though he doesn’t really know their meaning, he likes guessing them.

- When you two kiss for the first time, he has to stand on a chair. He nearly tips over, and you have to catch him. And when you’re holding him steady, that’s when he realizes he loves you.

- He always takes you on really elaborate dates. All the time. He puts a lot of effort into them, but sometimes they don’t work out. So he goes with his back-up plan. And the two of you order Chinese food and watch weird game shows.

- When he hugs you, he always bumps his forehead against your’s

SF!Papyrus

- He always gives you his jacket if you look even the slightest bit cold.

- Whenever you fall asleep on the couch, you wake up in your bed, tucked in. Sometimes there’s even a glass of water and a snack on your bedside table.

- He really likes doing little, sappy romantic gestures. If there’s condensation on a window, he’s put a heart with the two of your names in it. Sometimes he serenades you. Other times he picks you up and swing you around and around.

- He takes you on a lot of outdoorsy dates. He teaches you how to ice-skate, and when you trip and fall on top of him he just laughs and kisses your nose. Then he has you hold onto him while he skates you around the lake.

- He likes writing on you. When your reading, sometimes he’ll just take a pen and doodle on your skin. He draws little flowers,and smiley faces. And he’ll let you doodle on him too. He likes having matching drawings on each other, kind of like temporary tattoos

How to love each sign

How to love a(n)…

Aries: let them do whatever crazy stuff they want, and when you can, join them. Tell them exactly how you feel about them, let them be free and never control them.

Taurus: be there for them no matter what. Never go missing. Don’t try to change them because they’re too stubborn to listen. Don’t hold a grudge and don’t leave when they get strong-willed and lash out.

Gemini: do something new and exciting every day. Never be boring. Let them pick the date activity, and don’t get worried or upset when they do fun things without you.

Cancer: talk to them as often as possible, and let them vent to you. Cuddle them when they want to be cuddled but give them space when they ask for it. Never be upset with them for being honest with you.

Leo: give them all the attention they deserve. Remind them that you’re the only one that they want, and remind them why they should be with you. Tell them they look good. Take them out in public with you. Go for long drives with them

Virgo: let them win the argument, even if it’s just a joke. Keep things simple and straightforward because they don’t like games or bullshit. Never make them feel bad for being who they are, and let them be moody when they have to be.

Libra: cuddle them all the time. Tell them how beautiful they are and be a positive influence on their motivation. Pick them up when they’re feeling down and go out of your way to make them feel better. Never lash out at them because they do not accept misplaced anger.

Scorpio: make them feel like they’re in charge, even if they aren’t. Let them pay for stuff and show you off if they want to, and when they don’t, make sure you do it for them. Always keep things positive and remind them you care about them. Don’t push them when they retreat into their Scorpio cave, and don’t desert them when they sting you with their Scorpio tail.

Sagittarius: keep in touch as often as possible. Lay around with them on lazy days. Make them coffee and pancakes and don’t expect a thank you (although you’ll definitely get one). Play with their hair and look into their eyes when you talk to them.

Capricorn: tell them how smart and hardworking they are. Remind them that they don’t have to be perfect, and help them relax when you can. Support their endeavors no matter how draining they may be on them. Encourage them always to achieve their dreams and don’t stand in their way, even by accident.

Aquarius: smile all the time. Tell them they’re cute. Hug them and remind them how much you care for them. Make them food when they’re being moody and don’t make fun of their emotions. Never make them feel bad for seeming ‘lazy’, because they do most their work when no one is watching.

Pisces: show them affection in public but don’t be gross about it, pay attention to them even when there’s a lot of people around. Support their (many) emotions and never invalidate them, even when they’re irrational, and don’t put any more pressure on them than they’ve already put on themselves. tell them you love them, but make sure your actions convey the message louder than your words do. Don’t get distracted or a Pisces will take it personally and assume you’re losing interest

Happy Birthday Min Yoongi

I was gonna do one of these for Hobi on his birthday, but I got busy and it slipped my mind. I plan on doing one of these for all of their birthdays.

We need to talk about my baby, the one and only Min Yoongi.

He is the most hardworking person I have ever seen. He’s overcome so much in his life that most people would give up after only experience ¼ of what he has. Even when his parents didn’t support him at first, he still pushed forward to pursue his dreams.

He has a passion that seems to be lacking in most people nowadays. I see it in every song he has written, I see it ever time I listen to his mixtape, and I see it when he’s taking care of his fellow members.

He’s the least lazy lazy person I’ve seen. Of course he enjoys lying in bed doing nothing, I mean who doesn’t. But he is nowhere near the lazy that a lot of people make him out to be. He spends almost all of his free time working on his music. He also gets things done when he knows they need to be. I mean, he’s the person that changes light bulbs in the dorm, fixes broken things, and installs things.

He’s also the strongest person I’ve seen. Not many people would be able to come back from the dark hole that is depression and anxiety the way he has, and then be able to let people know about it.

With all of this, and I know he won’t ever see this, but he needs to know that it is okay to be lazy and do nothing sometimes. It’s okay to take breaks from time to time. And it’s okay if he wants to take some time off for his mental health. He has told us he’s okay, but I know from personal experience no matter how far you have come in healing yourself, there are still the occasional days that are dark, and gloomy, and where you don’t want to do anything but lie in bed and stare at the wall.

I’m proud to say that someone as caring, hardworking, strong, intelligent, and passionate as Min Yoongi is my bias no matter how hard Jimin tries to overtake him but I’m watching you Mochi, and I hope he spends the rest of his life as happy as he is when he’s making music and spending time with his brothers.

VIXX: mornings with them

N:  even more cuddly and touchy than normal, and that’s saying a lot. He’s not hard to wake up, esp since he’s so used to it and sometimes he simply can’t sleep in late bc his mind won’t let him. So if you’re still sleeping at this point, he’ll take this time to run his fingers lightly over your skin and admiring your sleeping face. Fixing your hair out your face, he’d kiss you on the forehead and begin to stretch his limbs, quietly getting up to fix you both some breakfast.

Leo:  he’d curl up next to you while alseep, and it’s hard to move out of his grip in the morning…not that you’d want to. He mumbles in his sleep a lot, so you always end up asking him what be was dreaming about the night before, and he answers with the same thing every time, “you.” He’d take his time to fully wake up, not really wanting to let go of your body and start the day.

Ken:  a very light sleeper, and wakes up often during the night bc you move around and lot lmao so let this boy get his sleep while he can. While still unconscious, he’d pull you into his chest and sigh peacefully. After finally waking up, he’d smile lazily at you but pout and groan when you try to get up.“babyyyy, let’s just stay in bed all day, we have nothing important to do.”

Ravi:  he barely gets any sleep, and when he’s finally home and sleeping next you, he’s completely knocked out and isn’t going to wake up for a while. He thinks of you as his teddy bear, basically, and refuses to let you out of his arms. All he wants to do when waking up is to cuddle with you for a little while, and talk about his previous day. Sometimes he’d play music while you two talk, and you’d both end up jamming hella hard to whatever he’s playing, and that’s his favorite way to wake up.

Hongbin:  he’d try to give you your own space and not bother you while asleep, but you’d both somehow end up entangled with each other in the morning, neither of you wanting to move. He’d lazily draw his lips across your shoulders and neck, mumbling about quiet ‘good morning’ and smiling. He isn’t the type to sleep in late, and sometimes manages to get up early to make you breakfast.

Hyuk:  will pretend he’s still sleeping, and snores very loudly as you try to wake him up. It’d take a lot of jumping on his back and “wake up, you lazy dummy” for him to roll over and attack you with kisses. Wouldn’t want to move out of your comfortable bed in the morning, and takes as long as he can just talking to you about anything and everything, and stroking your hair. He’d try aegyo for you to fall asleep with him again, and you’d never admit it…but it always works.

So I’ve been sitting on this for months…Like literally,I think I drew the first sketch back in December -_-

But I have been working on it for just as long, editing and re-editing and coloring and re-coloring and finding faults (like realizing Otabeks head was too big after I had already finished the coloring. I was able to fix it…a bit, just ignore it please).

Anyway, I got the idea sometime after episode 10 I believe. I thought it would be funny if Yuri P. and Otabek went to a cat cafe and all the cats loved Otabek and ignore Yuri lol I waited for a while to see if someone else would do it but no such luck. I took it upon myself to do it and now here it is, finally. I based some of the cats off my own and I do realize some of them are a bit small so… yeah, just ignore that too. I had way too much fun designing the background, which is hilarious since I usually hate doing backgrounds…

Hygiene, Health, and Product Tips

       The journey to and through testosterone is one of the most challenging, exhausting, and rewarding adventures I have taken thus far in my life. Personally, I’ve had kind of a love/hate or hit/miss relationship with my hormones. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t change going on them, but I would change how I treated my body during the beginning stages. I am currently on 5 cc of testosterone that I inject weekly. I am terrified of needles, but more terrified of the patches (thanks that one House episode where the man nearly killed his family). *Warning: I’m going to be telling products I looked for that kind of info when I started my transition, so sorry for the whole infomercial vibe*

      Pro Tip #1: Exercise. Work out. Get your body moving. I was lazy and only fed my body fried foods or take out. That is extremely unhealthy regardless of your hormone status, but especially when you’re on testosterone. I learned that the hard way. When I wasn’t working out consistently, I found myself to be more moody and irritable than the T already made me. I became even more dysphoric because I was gaining fat in all the places I’m self-conscious of. This may not be the case for everyone, but it certainly was for me. 

       I don’t have a lot of time to dedicate to the gym since I’m in my last semester of college and these capstone projects and work are taking up all of my time. Plus getting up at 6 am to go reminds me of the military, which makes me feel depressed. I found the Insanity Max30 videos, and they only take 30 mins out of your day, so it was perfect for me. Find your muse. Get moving.

       Pro Tip #2: Shower more regularly. If you’re one of those people who are able to be one with nature and smell good, then ignore this one. If you’re like me and sasquatch himself couldn’t compete with you on how bad you smell then please read on. About a week after I had my first shot of T, I woke up and was like what the hell is that smell? Yep, it was me. I realized that the smallest of tasks made me smell terrible. I don’t sweat heavily either, so this really came as a shock for me. 

       Turns out I apparently have the gene for extreme hair growth (even though that was NOT the case before), so soap became an issue. Nothing would really make me feel clean. I started using Dr. Squatch soaps about 2 months into T. It has masculine smell options and suds up well. I know a company called Mack Soaps is run by a fellow member of the trans* community, but I haven’t tried them yet. 

        Pro Tip #3: DON’T SKIP SHOTS OR BLOOD WORK. I never thought I would miss a shot. Testosterone is the one thing I had always wanted, and so there is no way I’d skip one right? Wrong. I did. A lot. I would be anxious about the needle or just forget. It really gave me bad mood swings, and eventually I could feel my ovaries trying to kick back into action (maybe that was just in my head, but it terrified me). I also recently had a scare with blood work. My clinic shut down that I had been going to, and was too scared to go somewhere else. I started to have pains in upper abdomen. Turns out my spleen was enlarged because of my T. I got it regulated, but don’t ignore blood work. It’s so important.

       Pro Tip #4: Alright. This isn’t really a tip, but I get asked a lot about hair products, so here ya go: I am stuck on Dirty by Lush right now. It’s one of the few I’ve used that washes out really easy, but also holds well. It also has an earthy smell, so bonus! I like the Uppercut Featherweight (white can) as well, but I’m not a huge fan of the smell of that one. 

If you guys have any other questions or product recommendations, just ask and I’ll be sure to answer. 

Sick headcanons

When Alex gets sick, he gets very annoying with saying that he can go to work. Since Alex doesn’t get sick a lot, when he does, he gets it hard. Once, John left for ten minutes to get food, and when he came back, Alex was at work, passed out in the bathroom.

When John gets sick, he gets extremely lazy and mellow. He won’t tell you what is wrong with him, and he mostly stares at Alex until he guesses what’s wrong with him. It irritates Alex like you wouldn’t believe.

Alex: are you sick?
John: /staring, not saying anything/
Alex: does your throat hurt?
John: /stares/
Alex: I’m going to take that as a yes.

As I said, Alex usually has to guess.

anonymous asked:

What kind of marriage life would each gom member have? Also what kind of husband and father are they? Headcanons?

Sorry that it’s taking a long time to do these, but I haven’t forgotten about them! -Admin Mari

Akashi Seijuro

  • It would be a pretty comfy and lush lifestyle, but by no means is it something over the top or Kardashian-esque.
  • Since he took over the family business, he’s a really busy man, but he always makes time for you and the kids (if you have kids).
  • Honestly, you two would be a power couple and have a really strong marriage; people are always in awe and are quite envious.
  • Akashi is a caring and gentle husband, but he exudes this silent strength that brings you peace of mind. He’s a complete family man because he knows what it’s like to be lonely, even within your family.
  • He gently yet sternly reprimands the kids when need be. He probably gives them lots of advice since he’s pretty wise, and talks in metaphors sometimes.

Midorima Shintaro

  • Definitely a comfortable and modest life style too. He’s a doctor so you guys are pretty well off, but he’s pretty frugal with money too, unless it’s lucky items.
  • That slight tsundere part of his personality never changes, even after marriage. It’s still easy to make him kind of flustered over certain things, and you probably do it just to tease him.
  • Also a family men and even though he’s busy, he’ll make time for you and the kids. Even if he had a long shift at the hospital, he will never fail to call you.
  • He was pretty clumsy with his kids during their early years because he wasn’t entirely sure how to handle them. He probably secretly read a lot of how-to books.
  • He’s got high expectations for his kids because he always wants best for them. He doesn’t pressure them, but he definitely makes it obvious that he wants them to at least get good grades. (”Don’t be like your uncle Aomine.”)

Kise Ryota

  • You guys would definitely have an exciting marriage life. It’s never a dull moment with you two, whether it be going out on a date every weekend or going on a spontaneous road trip.
  • Probably have an IG account to document your lives and stuff, and there’s a bit of a following on it. You guys take the best pictures tbh.
  • Kise is an attentive, talkative, and caring husband. At times, he can be like a little puppy and it’s hard to resist. 
  • Also, he’s kind of useless when it comes to household chores except for vacuuming and folding socks.
  • Incredibly weak when it comes to his kids and will cave instantly. That’s why the kids go to him first if they want anything because they know he’ll buy/do things for them behind your back. (”Just this once. Don’t tell anyone I bought you this, ok?”)

Aomine Daiki

  • Surprisingly, a normal marriage life. Very relaxing and stable.
  • You both live a modest life, in a nice small home that’s perfect for your family. Safe neighbourhood, good income, etc.
  • Camping trips or going out into the countryside for the weekend is definitely a common thing. 
  • He’s still as lazy as ever tbh, that hasn’t changed at all even after marriage. He takes naps a lot, sleeps in, etc. But he’s a family man too, no doubt about it.
  • He’s a lazy, easygoing dad. He’ll just be like “no, listen to your mother” because let’s be real, you’re the boss. 
  • Teaches his kids basketball and how to catch crayfish and beetles. He’s super active with his kids and would rather teach them these types of things.

Kuroko Tetsuya

  • Very stable, relaxing, and loving marriage life. It’s very normal in the sense that you guys don’t do anything over the top.
  • You guys are a terrific team as a couple and people are really amazed at how you guys work like a well oiled machine.
  • Picnics and walks in the park are a regular occurrence. The both of you belive that the you don’t need to go anywhere far or have huge events all the time to show your loves for each other.
  • Kuroko is the patient, quiet, understanding father. But, he scolds the children gently when need be and they know to listen to him.
  • He loves reading his kids bedtime stories; that’s definitely his thing every night, hehe.

Murasakibara Atsushi

  • Honestly, it’s a pretty normal marriage with Murasakibara too. Nothing too lush, but nothing too over the top and lush.
  • You are the one in charge of the house, hands down. You’re definitely more responsible and Murasakibara is more than happy to pass that onto you. He trusts your judgement when it comes to crucial decisions (and he does give his input too).
  • Going on food adventures is totally a thing and you guys pick places out together, and keep note for the future.
  • Omg, you’re basically raising a house full of children because he’s that type of dad. The kids love him because he’s always in on the pranks and he always buys them snacks.
  • He leaves the scolding to you, but 8/10 times he’s getting scolding along with the kids, ahaha.
Request: Bidders When MC is Sick Headcanon

@silverlinedshadow answered: Ahhhhhhh I was wondering what would KBTBB men be like if MC gets like pnumonia/flu where she’s sick for a week+ O:


 This is really cute!! I had fun writing this one :’)

Eisuke: He’d definitely be pretty useless at first, but he’d lowkey be worried about her!

“Tch, why didn’t you say something earlier?”

He’d call in nurses to take care of her, much to MC’s dismay. He’d make Luke come check on her at last once a day, as he stood in the doorway watching. He’d bring his laptop into the bedroom and sit in a chair in the corner and work. When MC finally convinces him to stop bringing in nurses, he’d be the one to check her fever every hour and bring her soup that he sneakily called in from room service lmao

Soryu: Poor thing would try so hard to take care of you even though it comes across as really awkward bless.

“Don’t be afraid to tell me if you need something”

He’d practically hover over MC while she’s sleeping in case she wakes up and needs him for something. It would be adorable to see the big bad mobster so wrapped around someone’s finger. He’s super nervous and panicky the whole time MC is sick, even when she reassures him that he’s being so kind.

Baba: He would be extra kind and loving to MC, but he’d probably be the most worried!!

“Let’s get you better soon, okay Princess?”

When he isn’t with MC to give her medicine, he’s in the kitchen making soup from scratch! He also is willing to give her back rubs and braid her hair up out of her face. He stays in the room and studies MC’s face as she sleeps, taking those precious moments to worry about her without MC noticing.

Ota: He’d go out of his way to make you smile and laugh!

“Hey Koro, you know laughter is the best medicine!”

He’d sit next to her in bed and play with MC’s hair or hold her hand while he told her about his day. He would be the most strict out of all the bidders when it comes to making MC take her medicine on time.

Mamoru: The lazy detective would actually do a lot to make MC feel better!

“I told ya that you work too hard, Sweetheart”

He doesn’t know a ton of home remedies, but Mamo would make multiple trips to the drugstore to get MC medicine, canned soup, crackers, whatever she needs! He’d make up for the fact that he can’t keep the apartment clean while she’s sick by making sure to be super attentive to MC’s needs

Shuichi: I think Shu would be much more likely to focus on getting MC to feel better than fawning over her, if that makes sense?

“This is what happens when you let yourself be vulnerable to germs”

He’d already have like every kind of medicine on hand and he’d even give MC some super-fancy herbal tea to soothe her. He’d be strict about medicine and staying in bed, but he’d reluctantly agree to sit beside MC in bed when she requests it while giving her one of his soft smiles.

Hikaru: Would give MC shit for getting sick, but he’d still worry in his own way!

“Hey stupid, I told you not to get out of bed for anything”

Hikaru would pretend to roll his eyes and dramatically get up when MC asks for something to eat or medicine, but as soon as he’s out of sight he’s sprinting to get what she needs lmao. He tells her that she’s being a pain while he’s placing a cool washcloth over her forehead, but he starts blushing when she looks up at him with this pathetic, sappy look.

Rhion: Wouldn’t really know what to do, so he asks Luke for advice!

“The doctor told me this would help you feel better!”

Poor bun would sit at MC’s bedside and give her a worried look. He’d constantly bring her tea and check her fever. When she whimpers in pain or discomfort, you can practically see the panic radiating off of Rhion. She ends up comforting him and assuring him that he’s doing a good job

Luke: He would obviously be the best one in this situation!

“We need to get your fever down for you to feel any relief”

He’s super professional when checking MC’s temperature or giving her medicine, but aside from that he’s super sweet and attentive!! He rests his own hand on MC’s forehead since he’s cold af lmao. He’s totally willing to rub her back until she falls asleep or help her in and out of bed.

Sometimes revenge comes from being professional.

(warning: long story)

A couple of years ago, my husband and I moved to his hometown after spending time abroad and starting a business. We needed a job to make ends meet as we grew our business, so we both took a job as a server/bartender at a beautiful historic inn and restaurant in our town.

The bosses were an old couple. We realized pretty quickly that the woman of the couple wore the pants, and that she had no idea what she was doing. In addition to this, she was a real asshole. The place was horribly mismanaged, in a market where it was impossible NOT to make money. However, the hours were convenient since the restaurant was only open on a limited schedule, and we were the only servers who didn’t have terrible substance abuse issues, so we quickly became the de facto managers. We are both business minded people, and we started thinking that we could really run the place well if given the opportunity.

After being there about 6 months, we made the owners an offer to run the hotel and restaurant for a year for a small salary, but with the potential for a huge bonus at the end of the year, calculated as a hefty percentage of any increase in profit over the prior year.

Best Friend confesses Series: Joshua

This is part seven of a series of Seventeen imagines. Feel free to message me and say who you want to see confessing next! Requests get done fast ;)

For as long as you’ve been friends, Joshua has been trying to pester you into learning how to play guitar. He wants to teach you all sorts of songs, especially because you constantly compliment his playing. But you keep refusing. You don’t really know why, but it’s such a habit now that you keep it up, even if it does make Josh look sad each time. 

Right now, you eye Joshua’s guitar sitting in the corner of the room, wondering how long it will take him to get bored and start playing it on this lazy Sunday afternoon. Sun is streaming in the windows and lighting the whole place up and sending dust motes spinning like tiny crystals in the air. As much as you love all the boys in Seventeen, your favorite days are days like this, just hanging out around the dorms with ‘95 line while you and Joshua roll your eyes at the antics of S.Coups and Jeonghan.

When Bts Falls In Love With Their Therapist

Jungkook: Although he has gotten many reassurances that he’s a good singer, he can’t help but feel as though he can never sing like he wishes to. Or like the other members. When he comes to you for help to get him through this mind block, he immediately notices how bright you are. As more time goes by, with reassurances from you, he begins to feel more confident in himself. So when you tell him that he shouldn’t have the mind block anymore, that you’ve done everything you can, he gives you the cute smile you’ve come to love and winks. “Oh, I haven’t had that problem in weeks. I just wanted an excuse to spend more time with you. Truthfully I-I’ve been in love with you and your beautiful voice and smile for weeks. It’s been driving me crazy. And I was thinking that, I would like to maybe get to know you on a more personal level, instead of professional. S-so, would you…like to go out with me sometime?” Unable to refuse his heart warming confession, you agree. You both silently thank him that he continued to come to you, long after he needed help. And because of your help, Jungkook would not hesitate when you asked him to sing you to sleep. Since you would make him feel like he was enough.

Jimin: Even though he’d never admit it to his members, there were times where Jimin still felt like he didn’t belong in BTS. He felt like the others were cooler than him, and more manly. And he laughed when he was called short, he knew they were joking, but sometimes it got into his head that maybe what they were saying was true. So the day he walked into your office, it was a bad day. You must’ve immediately noticed something was wrong because you quickly took him and sat him down. That’s when he let it go. All of his thoughts about himself and his image and how he doesn’t fit in, spouting out of him in rapid fire. When he was done, he was breathing heavily due to the tangent he went on. You reach over and touch his shoulder, rubbing it soothingly saying that he has no reason to be insecure. He looks up to see you blushing, and he noticed just how beautiful you are. Throughout the next few sessions you tell him just how handsome you think he is and that just because you’re shorter than the average man, does not make him any less manly. For some reason, when you spoke this he felt it to be true. Realizing that he’s fallen for your adorable blushes and soothing touches, he asks you out. Never again needing to be reassure just how much of a man he is.

Taehyung: Taehyung has never been stupid. Many people seem to think that, due to his playful and outgoing nature, that he must be. He never believed it before, but lately those comments seem to be the ones sticking in his mind. He knew that he shouldn’t listen to people who don’t even know him, but deep down, these comments hurt. That’s when he comes to you. The moment he walks in Taehyung notices your eyes first. And not how bright they are, but how they aren’t filled with an ounce of judgment on what he looks like or what he wears. He feels safe in this environment. As weeks pass, you helped him a great amount. You two had silly conversations, and never once did you believe him to be unintelligent because of it. You helped him learn to care less about what others think of him. But by then he realized that he cared what you thought about him. So he would try to stop being himself until you’d tell him, “Where’s the Taehyung that I’ve come to love in the past month? This isn’t you!” You’re eyes would widen realizing that you just confessed to this amazing man. Starting to panic, you would turn beet red. Until Taehyung would smile his rectangular smile you love so much. “Really!? I love you too! I just didn’t want you to think that it’s weird to love you after one month!” You shake your head, finding his reasoning comical. “Who wouldn’t fall in love with you and your silly and outgoing personality?” Taehyung would never have any trouble being who he was after that. As long as you are by his side, he can do anything. Including ignoring those comments that he no longer sees true.

Hoseok: Jhope, unlike his usual sunny disposition, would be feeling down in the dumps. Lately he has been feeling unappreciated by fans. Not only that, but he feels as if he isn’t a good enough rapper. After all, he learned so he could be in BTS. Feeling like he’s overwhelmed with sadness, he comes to you. What he doesn’t know beforehand is that you’re a fan of BTS. So when he comes in and realizes this, he almost turns right back around to leave. But, there’s something different about you. JHope would notice the way you stared at him in admiration and awe. This makes him feel better. Coming each week, he starts to fall in love with you and the way you make him feel. He’d rap some lines for you and you’d stare in amazement and wonder. You tell him that people who put him down are not real fans, and that he shouldn’t pay attention to them. “You know, out of all the rappers, you’re my favorite. You’re just so unique and you do it in your own style, no one can copy that.” Stopping, he looks at you, wondering what this warm feeling is growing in his heart. With a smile, he leans over and takes your hand. “This may seem kind of random, but, I will hate myself forever if I don’t ask you this. Will you….possibly go on a date with me?” The way you’d hug him and squeal in agreement, saying how you’ve been wanting to ask him for awhile would only further his realization. That he was madly in love with you.

Yoongi: Yoongi is always working hard, even though many people see him as lazy and someone who likes to just sleep. In all reality, he’s one of the hardest working people you’d ever meet. But sometimes, he takes on a lot of work. Lately he’s been stressed by all the new songs he’s producing and coming up with lyrics, that he is incredibly overwhelmed. So badly stressed that he locks himself away from the other members; from the world. He just sits in his studio feeling anxiety from the amount of things that he has to do. The members would eventually have to drag him out and send him to you. He gets there and he tells you all about his work and what he has to do. You realize that, while yes this is him stressed, it’s also deeper than that. Yoongi had become so obsessed with his work being perfect that he’s been putting himself down. Yoongi would be frozen when you touch his arm, but you reassure him that everything’s okay. “You don’t have to push yourself so hard Yoongi. You’re human just like the rest of us; and humans make mistakes. You’ll make mistakes. And that’s alright. You just have to see those mistakes as good things that open new doors to see something from another angle. So…just be human. That’s all anyone expects from you.” Your words would sink into his mind, and he lets himself open in front of you. He pulls you into a tight hug, not letting go for a while. “I knew there was a reason I loved you Y/N. you make me human.” You’d be together long after the sessions are over. And he’d live his life next to you…just being human.

Namjoon: With BTS’ rising popularity, the group would be showing up on more interviews and variety shows. They would ask the same questions. “Who is the best dancer?” “Who fits this concept?” “Who is the leader of the group?” This is where Namjoon would of course respond. But over time, he even began to question who the leader was. Over the last few months, he began to feel like an inadequate leader. Like he wasn’t good enough to set an example for the 6 other amazing members. Feeling worried about him, they would send him to you. He’s never had trouble speaking what’s on his mind, so Namjoon would open up about how he didn’t feel good enough to lead these boys in this journey together. You would smile at him, shaking your head. “Those boys are so grateful to you Namjoon. They wouldn’t be where they are today without your guidance. I’m sure that if you talked to them, they would say the same things. You’re a great leader. You are very important to them, they look up to you. Never forget that.” He stares at you, his lips spreading into a small smile. He reaches up and cups your cheek. “You know, I wouldn’t know what to do without you. Would you like to get some coffee with me sometime? Maybe I can get to know you now.” His smile spreads wider as you agree. Ever since that day, he’s never doubted himself again.

Seokjin: Jin knows that there are certain things that he’s good at. He’s a great cook, a good visual, and no matter how much the other members make fun of it; he has some great jokes. But, he never feels like he belongs in this group. Not that he doesn’t feel manly enough, he just doesn’t feel like he can ever compare to them. They’re all better dancers specifically. And even then the members make fun of him and he knows that it’s only meant as a joke, deep down he knows it’s all true. No matter how much he practices, he just can’t dance. Thinking that maybe it could just be in his head, he comes to you. Jin explains all these feelings of insecurity he has and doesn’t stop until it’s all out into the open. You take a deep breath, watching how he stares at you in anticipation before you respond. “We all have things that we can do better than others. Sure, you may not be the best dancer in the group, but you’re a great singer. And I’m almost certain the boys would’ve starved to death if it wasn’t for you. All you have to do is just be proud of what you can do, and don’t let the things you’re bad at define you. Just know that people see how hard you’re working to improve. And that’s all they ever really want from you.” When he hears this, he freezes. He realizes that you’re right, all he can really do is just keep working, keep moving forward. He then looks up to you and winks. “You know, I’ve really taken a liking to you these past few sessions. And, if you laugh at my jokes then you must be special. And…I can probably work harder if you were at my side. So….do you want to grab something to eat?” You smile and stand up, taking his hand. “I’d love to.”

It was a lazy Saturday night.  Zen had been hard at work for over a month, leaving early in the morning and returning well into the night.  Your boyfriend’s career had definitely been picking up; for the past several weeks, he had been juggling film sessions with a new TV drama series, as well as doing a lot of commercials.  The downside was that you hadn’t seen much of him, lately, other than a goodbye kiss in the morning and maybe a midnight snack once he got home, although you called and texted each other often.  You were happy for him, of course, but he knew that you missed him.

So, tonight was going to be all about the two of you.  He finally had an evening off, and he was determined to spend it with you.  You had just eaten a lovely dinner, together, cooked by you but with prep help from Zen.  Now, you two were cuddling on the couch, rubbing noses and being generally affectionate.  It was a beautiful evening.

How exactly is Thomas opposite?

He absolutely wasn’t! I was just thinking the very flat opposite idea of him. In my head Jefferson is… intentionally relaxed, he works but at his pace and there’s a very lazy take to everything he does too. He’s too smart he usually doesn’t have to put a lot of work in. Jhomas -has no chill because he doesn’t take that approach he’s 100% working on shit all the time and he doesn’t let go of anything and he’s always reaching for things actively he NEVER RELAXES but not in an Alex way but in a HEY YO IT’S ME AGAIN HA. There’s less of that collected chill bad guy vibe more of the I am here to acutally fuck you up with 200% of my brain power get ready lil asshole kinda vibe. Also we made him feel extremely obsessed with Fish and Chips instead. He never had a good impression of France apparently.

Bad Ideas (Chapter 1)(Spideypool)

Welcome to the Story!
Peter meets Wade, Wade says inappropriate things, Peter likes him anyway. Of course that is how it happens!
Peter in this fic is more along the lines of Andrew Garfield, partly because Homecoming isn’t out yet so I can’t write about Tom, and of course, the age thing (yikes!) Peter is definitely older in this fic!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy, drop me a like or reblog or comment if you’d like to be tagged in updates, I post once a day!

Thanks Lovelies!

—————-
Wade looked up from his beer when a beat up old van rolled to a stop in front of the garage. He didn’t bother getting up from his chair, not willing to stand for some lost ass hippie looking for directions.
His eyebrow did raise though, when a lanky brunette stepped out of the passenger side and waved the driver on.

After the dust cleared, the man-nah, that’s a kid- trekked up the driveway, holding a faded red backpack.

“Hey.”

“What’s up, man?” Wade tipped his beer towards him, noticing that the kid managed to maintain eye contact, even after getting close enough to see the absolute scarred up mess that was his face. “You need a tow from somewhere?”

“Uh, what? A tow? No man, I don’t have a car.” a nervous smile and Wade kind of hated how much he liked it.

“Well, this is a mechanics garage. Why else would you be here unless you had car trouble? Unless–” Wade looked him over and smirked. “I didn’t expect my rent-boy to here until Friday night, but I’m not going to argue.”

“What?” the brunette laughed, and Wade couldn’t help the interest curling through him at the sound. “No, uh, someone in town said you were looking for an employee? Gave me a ride out here. Wanted to see if you were still looking, or if this was a total waste of my day.”

“Employee.” Managing to look completely disappointed, Wade drained the rest of his beer. “Not a rent boy. That’s a damn shame. Ever thought about pursuing that line of work? I feel like you’d make a killing.”

“Well, uh, if you don’t give me a job I might have to, so maybe give me your number just in case? You know, future reference?” With a frankly adorable tilt to his head, a quick bite into about the fullest bottom lip Wade had ever seen, the boy glanced away and glanced back shyly and Wade was fucked.
