talking roses

anonymous asked:

Clara/Rose #9 for the kissfic-prompty- thing please :).

Sure thing, nonny! Just fyi though, I did take a tiny bit of liberty with the prompt, since I only really ship and write Rose with the Doctor. (But I think you’ll find it still very much fills the request. ;)

Rose is eleven years, two months, and twenty-eight days old when she has her first kiss.

The kiss is commemorated forever in her diary in a bright-pink scrawl. Kissed Mickey today, the entry reads. After break, beneath the stands. It was nice. Sort of wet. Might do it again. She punctuates the entry with a series of glittery flower stickers, slapping several on the diary’s binding, another next to Mickey’s name.

(She adds a heart next to it–that’s what kisses mean, right? Hearts and love and gooey-fluttering feelings in your tummy? Either way, the stickers and the heart all feel very official. First kiss, check.)

Rose nods in satisfaction.

Rose is sixteen years, two months, and twelve days old when she has her (second) first kiss.

Jimmy kissed me today!!! she writes in her diary–it’s a little faded now, fraying at the edges and underneath the stickers where their corners peel and yellow, but it’s still got empty pages for writing-in. Thot he was still w Hayley but he said nah its all sorted. Wants me to go see his band play down the pub tomorrow n said maybe hell come w me to winter formal! I cant believe it everythings coming up Rose (ha)  ♥ ♥ ♥ .

She doesn’t have any stickers to seal her sentiment this time (she’s too old and worldly for that sort of thing now anyway, isn’t she?) so instead she sneaks her mum’s very best lipstick and plants a luscious kiss next to the entry in a shade as brilliantly scarlet as her name. She pulls back with a grin, surveying her handiwork. It all feels very adult, doesn’t it? Much more grown-up than cartoon-flowers and glitter.

Rose picks up a gel pen and scribbles a series of Mrs. Rose Stone variants on a half-dozen pages.

**

Rose is sixteen years, seven months, and nine days old when Jimmy Stone breaks her heart.

(She is sixteen years, seven months, and ten days old when she leaves him.)

Rose has lost track of her age by the time she has her first kiss.

Oh, she’s sure she’s in her early twenties, give or take a few months, and she’s also sure the Doctor could track it for her, if she asked–could probably tick off the digits down to the millisecond, counting off the minutes that had passed since “Run”. She’s equally sure that she doesn’t care, because the Doctor just emerged from their room in the palace wearing a curve-hugging maroon suit. No, wait; she’s wearing a curve-hugging maroon Suit. It definitely deserves that capital S.

And if Rose didn’t know any better, she’d think those were heels.

So I really wanted to have a comic finished today, but I have one in the making that I’m really liking and didn’t wanna rush it, or separate it into parts. So have this Stardust Ruby Rose thing till I get back from vacation, and can upload a cute team STRQ comic!

Sidenote: Anyone think “Dust” in RWBY could be Star Dust? Idk what that would mean, but it sounds cute~!

  • Lion 4: reveals Rose to have been completely clueless as to who Steven was gonna be, effectively destroying the 'Rose knew everything' haze the characters have been in living in since season one, something a lot of people were disgruntled by.
  • (Some of) the Fandom: There's no plot or development to this. It doesn't have what I wanted from it. It's useless. Why did Crewniverse even MAKE this?

AZRIEL TO THE RESCUE “I need to start our lesson early.”

IN OTHER WORDS: “I understand why Rhys sent me here to get you, Feyre. Now let’s haul ass outta here before Nessian implodes.”

One thing I really love about Steven Universe is how they emphasize that COMMUNICATION is important.

You have Garnet (who is essentially the embodiment of a relationship between Ruby and Sapphire) singing about being a conversation

You have Greg and Rose sorting out their confusion about their relationship through talking

And you have Steven encouraging Pearl and Greg to talk about their complicated history with Rose and with each other

Communication can solve a lot of conflicts, and is important in keeping a relationship going, whether it be platonic or romantic. I’m glad SU inculcates that in its audience :)

(on the fun side, you also learn that Greg likes to sort things out through talking then dancing)

su sucks because its just full of faux progression

its full of strong female characters! except no, not really, the gems arent actually women

its full of POC! except no, not really, the gems dont actually have races

its full of positive gay representation! except no, not really, theres only one canon, healthy gay ship, and theyre rarely on screen. the only other actually-gay character is an abusive obsessive wreck who puts children in danger and cant get over her unrequited DEAD crush.  everything else is just ship bait with no confirmation

why were we all praising this show again?

Actual ACOWAR Friendly Reminder

THAT RHYSAND FINALLY REALIZED THAT THE BONE CARVER APPEARS TO FEYRE AS THEIR FIRSTBORN SON

You just go keep working on that Baby Feysand we’ll be waiting sobbing hoping dying anticipating dreaming. Until then, we enjoy every heartbeat of it.
