„Can you just…not…do that?“

Steve huffs impatiently, watching you turn and blink at him all too innocently.

“Do what, Captain? Admire the view?”

You gesture behind yourself, towards the small group of people that were currently being shoved into the back of a SHIELD van. Two young, handsome males and a beautiful, blonde female.

“They are terrorists, [Y/N]. Can you at least fake some professionalism?”

You shake your head with an amused smirk, your gaze lingering on him just long enough to see him reach out to massage his temple.

“What am I going to do with you?”

A laugh bubbles up at the back of throat and you turn, sending him a wink over your shoulder as you set into a casual stroll towards his motorcycle.

“My, Captain, I can think of a few things. Might need to stretch first though.”

His annoyed groan only serves to amuse you further, [E/C] meeting his cerulean blue ones just as he sweeps a hand over his slightly reddened face.

“I´m serious, [Y/N]. If you step out of line one more time-“

“You will give me a good spanking, got it, Captain.”

He buries his face in his hands with a shuddering sigh, the flush that spreads across his face delightfully bright.

And I can tell, today´s going to be a good day.


“How did you pull that off?”

Bruce´s disbelieving whisper drags a small chuckle out of you, your grip on his arm tightening insignificantly when he slowly leads you towards the emergency exit, flash-drive with the needed data safely stored in his jackets pocket.

“Like a wise person once said: If you can´t blow them away with your brilliance, baffle them with your bullshit.”

He snorts a laugh, opening the door for you once you´ve made sure that you could slip away undetected.

“You amaze me, [Y/N].”

“And we haven’t even slept together yet.”

You smile teasingly his way, easily slipping into the driver´s seat of your getaway car, while Bruce stands next to it for a few moments, shaking his head in a mixture of amusement and embarrassment.


You´ve had a lot of brilliant ideas in your life- a whole lot, but this, you decide, might just have been one of your very best.

“Please tell me I´m hallucinating…”

Tony´s disbelieving whisper drags a chuckle out of you, [E/C] sparkling in amusement as you push away from the set of suits that both Pepper and you have taken great pleasure in painting bright neon pink.

“Well, I am dreamy, but please do contain yourself, darling.”

He takes a shaky inhale, his eye twitching to the rhythm of his pulse. Or as doctor Cho would have put it, unhealthily fast.

“Don´t worry, it´s not waterproof”

You grin at him, reaching out to plant your lips to his cheek in an attempt to soothe his rattled nerves, before you lean back with a playful smirk on your lips.

“What do you say we get out of here, darling. To blow of some steam. Emphasis on the blow.”

He chokes on thin air, his eyes widening, and you take a picture, laughing at it and his truly priceless expression for the rest of your day-off.


“It´s beautiful”

You turn upon hearing Bucky´s voice, training your eyes onto the item the soldier was currently referring to.

It turned out to be Wanda´s new scarf, a fabric of gorgeous scarlet color that complimented both her powers and leather jacket lovely.

“Suits you”

Clint pipes up from across the room, sending you a quick look that almost begs you to say something also. Preferably something incredibly dirty. And who are you to disappoint?

“Indeed, it does. Maybe if you´re feeling a little frisky you´ll let me use it on you in more existing ways.”

She blushes and buries her face in her scarf, her cheeks as delightfully red as the fabric itself, while you merely take a calm sip of your tea and tone out Clint´s barking laughter.


You never failed to be pleased by Bucky´s delight at the simplest and most basest of things, one of the main reasons why you took to treating the Super Soldier to lunches and dinners every now and again, introducing him to various restaurants, bars and cafés while you were at it too.

“That was mind-blowing”

You grin up at him from behind your burger

“Not usually the circumstances I hear that, but I´ll take it.”

You narrowly dodge a fry that he throws your way, laughing at the small blush that tinted his cheeks as his creative imagination paved a way for, what you are sure, were some incredibly dirty thoughts and pictures.

“I hate you…”


“Wanna watch a movie?”

You smirk at Sam from behind the book that you were reading, teasingly raising a delicate brow.

“Why, Wilson, a little ´Netflix and Chill´ is always welcome”

He raises his own brows in slightly flustered disbelief, turning to Pietro for help only to receive a nonchalant shrug in return.

“Welcome to our world…”

You throw a book at the speedster, watching bemusedly as he calmly dodges it by craning his head to the right.

“Glad I´m flexible, right?”

“Certainly, although I´d love to find out just how flexible you can be, love.”

You treat him to a coy smirk and flirtatious chuckle, ruffling up his hair on your way to the elevator when you take notice of the color that set upon his cheeks.

“You coming or what, Wilson?”

“Me? Oh I-“

“Oh, I´m sure he already came!”

You laugh at Tony´s good natured jab, teasingly beckoning the flustered Sam to join you in the elevator with a wiggle of your index finger.


Patience, to most people´s surprise, had always been one of your strong suits, combined with the fact that you, not very unlike Natasha, were impeccable at stealth, it made you into a force to be reckoned with.

A force that Clint, just like HYDRA, learned to fear. For wholly different reasons.

“Boo”

A girlish shriek rips from his lips and you muster a self-satisfied smirk in return, watching him jump away from you, with clear amusement in your eyes.

“I hate you!”

He grips his chest for emphasis, wheezing and far from amused by your sudden and quite frankly startling appearance.

“Now that, darling, is where I beg to differ. I hold firm to the belief that I´m like walking heroin, very habit forming-“

“And it never ends well”

You chuckle at him and nod, offering him the basket of fries you brought along to share with the Archer.

“Now that this is out of the way, I figured you´d be hungry, after a jump like that.”

Nevertheless the withering look he gives you at the mention of his reaction to your sudden appearance, he takes the basket.

“To think you could be scared of lil´ol´me…”

“I wasn’t scared…”

And after swallowing, he quickly adds

“You´re not scary”

You merely grin at him, the flirtatious twinkle in your eyes unmissable and bright

“Well, in this case, rest assured, darling. I still have some tricks up my sleeve that can make you tremble- perhaps not in fear, but-“

You snort a laugh at him as he chokes on his fries and leave him to his demise, still coughing and red-faced.


“You know”

You crack your knuckles one by one, allowing your gaze to stray from her self-satisfied smirk and onto the heap of whimpering and unconscious HYDRA Agents before you.

“Shattering their bones is one thing, but shattering their bones, stepping on their manly pride and then laughing in their faces…”

You turn to give her a look of mock disappointment

“That´s just cruel”

“So, arrest me”

A teasing, lopsided grin is what it takes for Natasha to realize her mistake. Her green eyes flitting to where your hand is already reaching for your own pair of handcuffs.

“With utmost pleasure

“Don’t you dare”


You found Maria to be a person of utmost grace and intelligence. Someone who, despite being confined to her office for the better part of forever, still had no trouble slipping into the role of an active Agent if need be.

It´s unlike you, and if somebody were to point it out, you would most certainly deny it, but you admired that about her.

So, it came as no surprise to you when your eyes lingered on her frame for a moment longer than they needed to be, watching profanities leave her lips in an enraging volume if only to convince the target that she was truly offended.

Out of the corner of your eye, you catch Natasha´s gaze on you, her own green eyes twinkling in amusement as she watched your lips curl upwards at Maria´s impeccable performance.

“Penny for your thoughts?”

Her voice reaches you over the com

“I´d love to make that woman scream for real”

It takes you a moment to realize why Maria cracks for a split-second, a flush setting upon her cheeks.

“She left her com on”

Natasha informs you and not missing a beat, she adds a questioning

“You´ll never stop, will you?”

You merely shake your head, teasingly winking Maria´s way when she sends you a half-hearted glare over the target´s shoulder.

A good day indeed

Current Skincare Routine

I’ve been very hesitant about posting my skincare routine on here because I keep changing it up and adding new products contstantly, but here is my current one. I figured out this may help some people out. This may possibly not work for you the same as it’s working for me. If your acne is fungal you shouldnt be using oils. My routine comes from years of experience and research. Before you add actives into your routine, READ about them first and start off with once a week.
I have dehydrated, extremely sensitive, acne prone oily skin, with dryness around my mouth.
I use the oils as moisturizers because i havent found one that doesnt make my senstive skin break out or feel irritated yet, and these have worked very well for me.

AM:
- Wash face with lukewarm water
- Tone with a wet cottonpad and a drop of tea tree oil (if my face feels irritated i skip the tt oil), if I have a will to live on that day I will make green tea and tone with it.
- 1.5% hyaluronic acid serum
- Vitamin C suspension by the ordinary on my scarring
- Perilla oil
- Hempseed oil (Argan if my skin feels dry)
- Vaseline on dry patches
- Ultrasun baby SPF 50 sunscreen

PM:
- Sylveco cleanser for sensitive skin, sometimes I’ll also oil cleanse.
- Tone (same as AM)
- The ordinary’s Lactic acid 5% every 2 days/ otherwise hyaluronic acid/ sometimes also niacinamide + zinc
- Perilla oil
- Argan oil
- Emu oil + rosehip oil under eyes
- Benzoyl peroxide 5% on areas where i tend to break out (only on days without lactic acid)
- Vaseline on my dry patches

Masks:
Green clay mask every 2 or 3 days
Eucalyptus honey mask every 2 days or every day
Aloe vera mask when my skin feels irritated

In honor of Atem, I wrote a little story about Yugi and his friends celebrating the Pharaoh’s birthday! 

(Note: Dub names used)

It was a warm, summer afternoon, sometime after their trip to Egypt. Yugi and his friends had gotten together for a very important event. It was Atem’s birthday. It was one of the few things Yugi got to ask about the Pharaoh’s past before his spirit moved on. He said it was the 19th of the third month of Harvesting season (Shemu). After some research, and talking to the Ishtars, Yugi found out it was on July 26. Atem might not have been around anymore, but everyone wanted to celebrate anyway.

Yugi, Joey, Tea, Tristan, Duke, Bakura, even Joey’s sister Serenity and Mai had gathered at Domino Park for this. Not a cloud in the sky, and a gentle breeze blowing. It was perfect. They sat a picnic table, happy to have some peace and quiet for once. Until someone opened his big mouth.

“Feels kinda weird, throwing a party when da birthday boy isn’t here,” Joey said in a slightly sarcastic tone.

“Joey!” Tea shouted, as she often did whenever he said something insensitive. But he wasn’t completely wrong. Everyone was happy to do this, but at the same time, a bit saddened. Atem had touched each of their lives, and they all missed him.

“Uh, Tea,” Bakura spoke, trying to changed the mood. “Didn’t you say you brought a cake?”

“I did,” she said, in a more cheerful voice. Tea opened a box, inside was a medium-sized, round cake with white frosting and a Millennium Puzzle design on it.

“You made this?” Duke asked. He was quite impressed. Joey and Tristan’s mouths were already watering.

“Well, Yugi helped decorate,” Tea confessed. The Puzzle was his idea. “It looks delicious,” Mai responded.

“What kind is it?” Joey demanded. “Chocolate? Buttercream? Strawberry?”

“Actually, it’s confetti,” Yugi answered. “It’s Atem’s favorite.” Everyone chuckled a bit, knowing such a serious guy loved such a childish flavor. But then again, they all did.

Yugi put a single candle on top of the cake and lit it. “What’s that for?” Tristan said quite puzzled. “It’s not like…” He didn’t finish. The mood became down again.

“I was thinking… We each take turns saying things we’re grateful for, about the Pharaoh, and then we all blow out the candle together,” Yugi sheepishly replied. They all smiled. It was a bit cheesy, but it sounded fun. There was a lot they wanted to say to him before he left.

“I’ll go first,” Tea started. “Atem, it was pretty startling to find out there were two Yugis, but I’m glad we met. You were always so brave and confident. And stubborn. But you would do everything you could to protect us. Thank you.”

“I’ll never forget what I learned from ya,” Joey continued. “You taught me what it was to be a true Duelist. To never give up. And I’m gonna get even stronger.”

“Our lives may not have been easy since you showed up, but they were full of adventures,” Tristan added. “I’ll never forget any of them.”

Bakura was next. “Even though I caused a lot of trouble for you and everyone, you still called me your friend. I’m very grateful for that.”

“I’m a bit disappointed we never had our rematch, but you were always a good friend, Pharaoh,” said Mai. “Even when I wasn’t.”

“I still feel bad that I accused you of being a cheater when we first met. I’m really glad we became friends.”

“I didn’t really get a chance to know you, but you always helped my brother, and I’m very thankful for that,” Serenity joined in.

All that was left was Yugi. He took a deep breath. “Atem… I don’t even know where to start. Ever since I solved the Millennium Puzzle, I never felt alone. Even before I knew about you. You taught to believe in myself, and to have courage. I never thought I could be that way. I always wanted to be strong like you, but you told me I have my own kind of strength.

“You always told me I made my wish come true by myself. Even so, the Millennium Puzzle did grant my wish.” They all looked at Yugi. “I wished for friends with bonds strong enough to link our hearts together. And the Puzzle gave me you.” Yugi began to tear up. “You always looked out for me and kept me safe. You were someone I could look up to. I… I never could have gotten this far without you. Atem, you’re the greatest friend I’ve ever had. And I’ll never forget you. Never.”

Tea put her arms around Yugi. He dried his eyes. The two stared at each other for a bit until Yugi managed to compose himself. “Everyone ready?” he asked. They all nodded their heads. They all took deep breaths, and blew out the candle, hoping their words would reach their friend in the other world.

Almost immediately, Joey grabbed the knife and started cutting the cake. “Dibs on a big piece!” The others tried to stop him, arguing not to eat the whole thing. Yugi just watched, smiling at his friends’ antics. He turned his head towards the sky, watching the last of the smoke disappear.

“Happy Birthday Atem.”

—————
In a land unaffected by time, in a palace in the desert, a young king stood outside on the balcony. Voices he knew began to resonate in his heart. Their words and feelings swept over him. Atem smiled, knowing he had not vanished from his friends’ memories. That they remembered this day.

A single tear rolled down his face. “Thank you, Yugi. Everyone.”

The cast and morning drinks- part 1

Dazai: most extra drink you can think of from starbucks. a venti java chip frappuccino with two shots of espresso, extra pumps of chocolate, and chocolate drizzle on top of the whipped cream. its a sugar bomb. chuuya always wrinkles his nose and tells dazai that’s not real coffee.

Chuuya: straight black coffee or espresso shots when it’s a really bad morning. unable to function without the caffeine in his system in the morning. crew jokes that he shouldn’t drink any cause he’s more in character without it

Atsushi: a soy vanilla latte on cold days or iced caramel macchiato on hot days. doesn’t like his drinks too sweet but loves caramel in general so the macchiato will always be an exception. is somewhat lactose intolerant but loves lattes so his life is a struggle

Kyouka: iced fruit tea. she doesn’t enjoy coffee (the taste is too bitter for her) and doesn’t enjoy milk either so she sticks to fruity teas. her favorites are white peach, mango, or passion fruit. prefers her drinks cold since she has a hard time drinking things that are too hot.

Akutagawa: almond milk caffè mocha. also enjoys lattes like atsushi but has a fondness for chocolate which is why he prefers mochas. his favorite drink is actually the seasonal peppermint mocha latte and is always extremely excited around the holidays because of it.

Yosano: iced americano. always has an iced drink even if the weather is chilly because she says it wakes her up better. enjoys the bitter taste of coffee and drinks it without any additives. she and chuuya have intense conversations about coffee beans.

Kouyou: matcha lattes. enjoys more traditional japanese drinks and sticks with matcha in the morning. also prefers her drinks on the less sweet side saying sugar is bad for one’s complexion. her pink hair and the vermillion of the matcha reminds her of cherry blossoms in spring and help her relate to her character’s lost love

Naomi: vanilla bean frappaccino or strawberries and creme frappacino. has a massive sweet tooth and loves the color schemes of both drinks. doesn’t actually like chocolate despite her love for sugar so she’s never really tried the mocha frappaccino or other chocolate infused drinks even though junchiro insists she’s going to love it.

Gin: hot earl grey tea or iced jasmine green tea. enjoys the earthy tones of earl grey and the contrasting floral accents of jasmine tea. she actually really likes the smell of coffee but couldn’t get over the bitterness the first time she tried it. akutagawa doesn’t understand her logic since green tea can be bitter too. she says the jasmine masks it well.
