  • Sleep with a stuffed animal or blanket that you feel comforted by
  • Try not to snack too close to bed time, indigestion can lead to nightmares
  • Stretch before bed
  • Do breathing exercises or meditate before bedtime
  • Crack your window slightly to bring in fresh air while you sleep
  • Avoid nicotine, alcohol or caffeine too close to bed
  • Listening to calming ambient sounds can help

Dealing with Nightmares

Nightmares can be very stressful and terrifying. Everyone has them and sometimes they are caused by your own subconscious thoughts and worries. 

  • Keep a notebook or dream journal with a pen near your bed. When you wake up from a nightmare, even if you are distressed, try to write down your emotions, thoughts and what you can remember about the nightmare down.
  • Come morning research the symbolism of the things that happened and appeared in your nightmare. Also consider what they may mean personally to you. Do you have any memories or experiences that relate to what happened in your dream?
  • Look it all over after you finished your research. What picture does it paint? Is something from your waking life affecting you? Stresses? Arguments? Relationship problems? If so perhaps it is time you try to resolve these problems.

After waking up from a nightmare you can still feel rather distressed. 

  • Take deep breaths, as scary and distressing as it is, it is still just a dream
  • Get some water
  • Stretch or walk around if you can, get the jitters and shakes out 
  • Cleanse your room if you can, spray some moon water about or bring in some salt, help remove the negativity you just felt
  • Read a book, it can help relax you again and make you feel sleepy, especially after such a stressful experience
  • After you wrote down what you remember from your nightmare, don’t dwell on it right now. You can worry about it later, for now find other things to do if you are not interested in going back to sleep
  • Listen to calming music or sounds
  • Watch calming images or videos if needed such as rain falling, ocean waves, changing clouds, looping gifs, etc
  • If someone is around and there to listen, you can talk it out with them. It can really help calm you
  • Drink some chamomile tea, it really helps
  • Wash your face
  • Cuddle, pet or speak with a pet
  • Hold your favorite stuffed animal or blanket for comfort
  • Make a crystal grid of calming stones and negativity removal stones 
  • If you do not plan on going back to sleep or if it is already morning, take a shower or bath
  • If you do not plan on going back to sleep, light some white and black candles to cleanse yourself and space of the negative energy brought by the nightmare. Do this with caution, make sure you are not too tired to do this. Fires are not fun or safe

Dating Tom Holland Would Include...

ok I couldn’t help myself, sorry I haven’t written in years- but ya enjoy!!

  • alright, like tom would be the sweetest boyfriend don’t even try to fight me lol
  • like he would be such a gentleman 
  • always holding doors for you and pulling out chairs for you and ordering on your behalf and such
  • but he’d also be really cheeky 
  • like he’s not one to shy away from a good prank I feel
  • like he’d hide behind the door and give you a good jump scare or fill your car up with balloons or something- innocent things
  • but like if it ever got too far or if you even got the slightest bit hurt from it, he’d immediately rush over to you and make sure you’re alright
  • the little gymnist would constantly be doing flips and all these cool parkour moves which would make you so worried and on edge
  • “babe, stop, you’re going to hurt yourself”
  • “oh come on, darling, I’m spider-man”
  • and that would be his excuse for everything “darling, I am spider man after all”
  • and yes, his favorite thing to call you would be “darling”
  • and you’d also be worried about him doing some of his own stunts
  • like you’d walk over and he’d be hanging from some cables and casually be like, “oh, hey babe! want to grab some dinner after this?” 
  • taking Tessa on regular walks through the park would probably be one of the highlights of your day because it’d usually just be you and tom
  • and you’d find a quiet spot and just throw some tennis balls out for Tess and relax for a bit, it’d be a great get away from all the flashing cameras and noise
  • hanging out with Tess most of the time in his trailer
  • I feel like your relationship would be kind of private
  • I mean, people would know you’re dating, but you guys wouldn’t flaunt it
  • there may be a couple of pictures of you through out his Instagram feed, but it wouldn’t be overboard
  • and when you do post a picture together, the fans will all go crazy
  • however, on twitter, I feel like you two would get into little witty battles, here and there, and people would take sides and everything
  • but it wouldn’t be anything major, it’d be stupid stuff- like the correct pronunciation for “croissant” or something lol 
  • he’d be dancing all over the place all the time
  • and if you’re not good at dancing he would teach you a move or two and crack up at the amount of rhythm you lack, but he’d find it really cute and endearing
  • teasing him about lip sync battle
  • and sometimes if it’s raining he’ll do a tiny bit of the routine just to make you laugh
  • lots of insiders
  • beach dates
  • you would hang out with Harrison a lot and go to interviews and watch behind the cameras 
  • and Tom would get distracted every now and then with you being right there, and he’d stare off and you’d point your finger to the interviewer and signal at him to focus back, even though it’s really cute 
  • seeing the world while joining him on press tour every now and then
  • sneaking him off set every once in a while to grab a bite to eat or go adventuring and putting him in an elaborate disguise 
  • waking up to him making a nice cup of tea and breakfast every morning
  • having spider man merch lying all over the house because tom can’t help himself
  • and every time you’re at target and pass the toy isle where all the action figures are and the masks are, he’ll stop and shout “hey, look it’s me!!” 
  • sweet little kisses 
  • planning the future together
  • “what if our kid prefers superman?”
  • “then we’ll send them off to military school” 
  • obviously being his date to red carpet events and ceremonies 
  • and he’d always be very nervous and making sure you’re alright because all the flashing cameras, rude reporters, and screaming fans are a bit much
  • cheering him on in the crowd when he’s up for an award
  • and you being one of the first people he thanks in his speeches
  • if you aren’t from England and he’s near your home town for press tour or comic con, you take him all around town and show him where you grew up and share funny stories about each of your stops
  • him getting on great with your family, who can’t get enough of him
  • going over to see his family on holidays, who absolutely adore you
  • one of his brothers will probably have a not so secret crush on you and you jokingly threaten tom to leave him for them 
  • you being his whole world and him constantly talking about you in interviews
  • also lots of rumors about you guys getting married, having a baby, or breaking up, but you just tune those out 
  • lots of movie nights at his place which lead to you guys crashing out on the couch 
  • stealing his clothes
  • him whispering sweet nothings in your ear
  • and Harrison screaming “get a room”
  • lots of “I love you’s” 

let me know if you want a part 2 lol 

anonymous asked:

"i'm sorry i trapped you in my web that doesn't dissolve for a few hours, i thought you were stealing that"

“Seriously, Peter? Seriously?”

“I’m sorry I trapped you in my web that does not dissolve for a few hours.” Peter looks at you sheepishly. “I thought you were stealing that.” He looks away guiltily, rubbing the back of his neck.

You narrow your eyes at him but as much as you want to be mad at him, you really could not bring yourself to do even if Peter did trap you in this web of his. “I saw your backpack laying on the ground, Pete – I was not going to steal it. I was going to return it to you.”

Peter winces at the sincerity behind your voice and he looks at you again. “I really am so sorry, Y/N.”

You huff. If you could cross your arms, you would but since your entire body is trapped in this substance, you can’t so you settle with narrowing your eyes at him. “Yeah, me too.” You say obnoxiously before letting out a sigh. “Sorry, I’m taking my anger out on you.”

Peter shakes his head. “You shouldn’t! You have every right too – I, I am going to stay here with you until that dissolves.” Peter exclaims. “That’s the least I can do.”

You try to tilt your head when an idea comes to you. “How about you take me out for dinner when this thing dissolves?” You eye the spider-web and Peter flushes at your suggestion.

He nods his head, trying to fight the grin that is threatening to appear on his face. “Yeah, yeah, I’d like that – I mean, I can do that. Just as soon as it dissolves.” He tells you and you finally give him a smile. You really cannot fault him to be honest – Peter did tell you how many times he has already lost his backpack.

“I’m home, love!” Tom sang through the house as he came through the front door, putting his umbrella down and stepping on the heels of his shoes to slip them off, then kicking them into the corner. The wind slammed the door shut behind him and he jumped, mouthing ‘oops’ to himself as he made a beeline for the bedroom when you didn’t reply to him. “Hello?” he said quietly as he cracked the door open.

You were lying in bed with heavy eyelids, the entire room smelling of menthol and littered with tissues. Rain tapped the window on the furthest side of the room, beads of water rolling down the glass outside. The lights were off, and you let out a small groan when Tom opened the door, light from the hallway pouring in.

“Aren’t you well?” He asked gently, stepping into the room and closing the door behind him. You shook your head and pulled a blanket over your face, coughing into it and he frowned, sitting down beside you. “Why didn’t you call me, I would’ve come home!” he told you, keeping his voice low. He pulled the blanket away from your face and studied how pale you looked, your nose running and you wiped it away with your sleeve, sniffling.

“I’m dying,” You groaned, closing your eyes. He stroked your hair, concern pooling in his eyes as he untangled a few knots with his fingertips.

“I’m sorry, darling.” He cooed gently, leaning in to give you a kiss but you stuck your hand out to stop him.

“Don’t wanna get you sick.” You murmured, dropping your hand down onto your chest again. Tom pouted and gave you a quick kiss on the forehead anyway, noticing how hot it was against his lips. He stood up and began gathering all the tissues scattered over the bed and the floor, humming a gentle tune as he did so. You lifted your head slightly to see what he was doing, a trace of a smile on your lips as you watched him through half-open eyes. “You don’t have to do that, babe…” you mumbled sleepily, sniffling again.

“Well, I want to. Do you want some tea, love? Or soup? Or water? I bet you need water. Hold on.” He disappeared from the room with a collection of tissues in his arms, and you could hear the kettle whistling in the kitchen while he was gone. He returned not long after with a warm mug and glass of water on a tray, along with two aspirin. He placed the tray on the ground and perched himself on the side of the bed, encouraging you to sit up and gathering your hair in his hands. He loosely tied it up for you as to keep you from getting hot, despite how cold the room was. Then, he pressed the back of his hand to each of your cheeks, then your forehead, giving you an exaggerated frown. Tom took the tray in his hands again and passed you the aspirin. You placed the white pill on your tongue and he held the cold glass of water to your lips, helping you drink it. Once the glass was empty, he handed you a cup of tea in a spider-man mug, smiling at you and fixing the pillows behind your back so that they were supporting your back. You wrapped both hands around the mug, shivering even though your skin was boiling hot, and you sipped at the tea Tom had made you. It was subtly sweet, just how you liked it, and it wasn’t too hot, as if he had blown on it to cool it down for you. He watched you sip at your drink with your runny nose, and your messy, sweaty hair, and eye-bags and paled skin and flushed cheeks. He was looking at you as if you were the most ethereal thing he had ever laid his eyes on, despite all this.

“Hey,” he whispered, his chin resting in his palm, elbow on his knee. The rain grew heavier outside and began to patter against the roof.

“Hey.” You whispered back horsley, lips brushing the edge of the mug.

A tender smile touched his lips and he sighed softly, “God, I love you.” He breathed.

“More.” You told him quietly.

“Most, darling.”

We have finally reached the last of the one-line sentence starters and ships will gradually be posted over the next few days! (ships are not open!) Thank you so much for joining this event, guys! I had a lot of fun writing them and hopefully you enjoyed them as much as I did! 


“No – hun, no. This is NOT going to work.” May all but exclaims and you jump, startled by her sudden exclamation. You turn to look at her, eyes raised suspiciously. “Y/N, you have got to stop him.” May tells you as she holds your shoulders.

“Um, what?”

May shakes her head. “Kids nowadays.” She mutters but she was close enough for you to hear her loud and clear. So you hold on to her wrists. “Do you really think I don’t know, Y/N?”

Your heart starts to race at her knowing tone and as much as you try to look away from her piercing, knowing gaze, you couldn’t. “If I said no, will you drop it, May?” You mumble, looking away.

May shakes her head. “Of course not, Y/N.” She releases your shoulders in favour of holding your hands. “Peter is… a growing boy – sometimes he does things he thinks are good and I am not saying it’s not well-thought out, it is but he can be very oblivious to what’s right in front of him.”

You shrug your shoulders. “I mean; it’s not like I’ve given him any hints otherwise.”

May cups your cheek with one of her hands. “I think the least you should do is try, Hun.” May smiles at you and you look at her for the longest time before slowly nodding your head. She caresses your cheek before pulling away. “Now that we’ve settled that – let’s get you dolled up.”

“Wh- what?”

May looks at you expectantly. “Did you think I am just going to let you sit here while everyone else is going for homecoming? Of course not. Let’s get you dressed up!”
