thank you emma thank you so much


I just wanted to share something very special with you all.
A wonderful friend I made here on Tumblr, @kagebullshitnojutsu, knows my love for her homeplace - which is London. I have never been able to visit myself but it has been on my bucket list for about 15 years. Out of the kindness of her heart, she sent me a care package full of British snacks and a beautifully written letter that included a drawing of Shikamaru on the back. I am in awe at such a genuinely thoughtful gesture.

Thank you from the bottom of my wee little heart for taking the time (and money!!) to send me this package. My heart feels so warm and tingly! Not gonna lie, I shed a tiny little tear while opening it and reading your letter. ~~ Just because of how kind this gesture was. You are a wonderful friend and I do hope as well that we continue to bond over our mutual fondness for Shikamaru.

Tumblr is a beautiful place and we are so lucky to be in it - and to be surrounded by such wonderful people. I have made some incredible friends within this fandom. You all know who you are! I not only feel blessed today but I feel blessed everyday for knowing all of you.

Thank you again, Emma. I cannot wait to eat every single thing in this package!! xx Muah!!!

"It was unnecessary and presumptuous to assume" Anon, please cut it out. You do realize how pretentious you're sounding, right? Leave bigherosixed alone, I don't like Emma's performance in the new movie so far either, but it's really quite rude of you to lash out in someone else's inbox and put them in a spot like that. I hope your day goes well and whatever's stressing you out doesn't bother you anymore. (This goes for Louise too!)

I hope your day goes well too; thank you! :)

Hi! First of all, I would really like to thank you for every single bit you have written for this fandom, you're amazing. I don't know if you take prompts right now, but there's one that has stuck with me over the years and since you're my favorite fanfic writer it would mean so much if you wrote it! Here it is; setup/countdown takes place after 47 seconds. Again thanks for everything! Love, Emma

He’s so stiff against her, his arm like a vise around her shoulders, his chest like a board beneath her cheek, and she doesn’t believe it’s all wholly from the cold.

“Castle?” she calls, her voice raspy, trembling through the ice in her lungs, up the chilled hollow of her throat. “You still there?”

“Yeah, I’m right - right here,” he answers with chattering teeth, and at least he’s still shivering, still feeling enough to shake. 

She stopped trembling quite a while ago.

Kate attempts a breath, does her best to open her eyes that continue to fall closed, and uses what little strength she has to lift her hand from his chest, touch her fingers to his chin.

There’s so much she wants to say, but it’s been so different between them lately, so devastating, and he’s made it clear that whatever they once had, whatever chance they had at becoming more, is gone. But she refuses to die with words unspoken, to sin by silence - as he’d not so subtly accused her of - even as it burns to scrape the confessions out of her mouth.

“Thank you. For being there,” she rasps, the slow beat of her heart exalting for a brief moment when his head bows ever so slightly, his lips grazing the frozen tips of her fingers.

The pressure of his arm around her increases just a little more and she hums in approval. “Always.” 

And the sound of that word - their word - one she honestly never expected to hear again, not from him, has a small chunk of the ice encasing her heart melting away, allowing it a little extra time to continue beating.

“I just want - need you to know how much I love you.”

His entire body shudders beneath her and then he’s shifting, tugging her in closer. 

“W-what?” he gets out, one of his hands rising to her face, stroking at her cheek, and she fights so hard to feel it, to stay awake for it, but she’s fading too quickly.

“Love. You,” she manages, the encrusted ice coating her lashes weighing down her eyelids, but she forces another blink, has to see the crisp blues of his eyes staring down at her, the bitter shade of grey she had become so used to softening into the cerulean she’d so greatly missed. The way he’s looking at her now the only source of warmth she has left. “Missed you. Love you.”

“Oh, Kate,” he rasps, his hand clumsy at her cheek, his lips useless at her forehead. “You def-definitely can’t pass out on me now.”

She hums, but her eyes are falling closed, sleep so near-

Castle’s mouth touches her, his chapped lips scraping against hers, the heat of his tongue sparking at her bottom lip. And it has her neck aching, cracking, but she lifts her head, parts her lips, and mm, for a moment, gentle frissons of heat and clarity thawing away some of the ice. 

But not enough.

“Come on, Kate,” he mumbles, his lips brushing hers as he speaks, his breath a fraction warmer, burning her cold lips. “Stay with me this time.”

She tries to press in closer, but - but it’s all black and heavy and she can’t see anything anymore.

“Kate, open your eyes. Please, I - I love you too. You know I love you. You have to-”

“Good silver lining,” she mumbles, drifting off against his shoulder. “Not - so bad like this.”

And it isn’t, being allowed to remain curled against him in the snow, to fade slowly into the warm darkness with his love in her ear. Better than the bullet she would have expected to kill her at its next chance.

His cheek hits the top of her head, the last thing she feels, and she sighs out a final breath of contentment.


He emerges from the ambulance with a matching blanket around his shoulders and she manages a smile for him, unsure of how much he remembers from the freezer, if karma has come for her and erased her love from his mind as she had done with his a near year ago. 

But despite the hypothermia she knows he’s suffering from, Castle strides up to her with purpose, the blanket slipping from his shoulders once he reaches her and lifts his hands to her face.

Kate breathes a sigh of relief into his mouth when he kisses her, no preamble or hesitation, only the certain press of his lips spreading heat through the chilled parts of her. 

He reluctantly pulls back at the whistles from Ryan and Esposito, but Beckett arches on her toes, swallows his quiet groan as she sucks on his upper lip. 

“You really love me,” he mumbles, staining the statement against her lips, question and awe in his voice, and Kate nods her head. 

“Yes,” she breathes, opening her eyes to see into the ones looking down at her. “Wasn’t just a deathbed confession.”

“Neither was mine,” he murmurs, narrowing his gaze on her as his thumbs stroke along her cheeks. “I love you too, Kate.”

Her mouth spreads into a smile that she seals to his, one of her hands abandoning the clutch of her blanket to cup the back of his neck-

“Hey, lovebirds,” Fallon calls with a snap of his fingers and Beckett sighs, presses a final kiss to the corner of Castle’s mouth before descending back to the balls of her feet. “Hate to interrupt the celebration of survival here, but we’ve got work to do.”

“After,” Castle whispers, his hands slipping down to her shoulders, squeezing warmth into her stiff bones.

“After,” she echoes, splaying her hands at his sides and biting down on her bottom lip to conceal the smirk curling there. “Won’t ever let you feel cold again while you’re with me.”

Lovely embers of heat spark through his eyes and Castle leans in to push a hard kiss to her mouth. 

“Thank god we lived.”

She breathes a laugh against his lips before she draws back, steals his hand from her shoulder and twines their fingers, grateful for the warmth, the ability to feel the fit of his hand in hers and the flame that travels through her veins, heating her blood. 

“Hurry, Beckett,” he murmurs, dragging her along with him towards Agent Fallon. “The quicker we save the city, the quicker you get to warm me up.”

First of all, Swen - I have to say you’re all amazing

Again, thanks for being great. <3



SQ/Main blog:

An Enchanted Christmas

Surprise, @athenascarlet!!! I’m your Gutter Flower Secret Santa!!! I’ve had so much fun getting to know you over the past few weeks and I can’t thank you enough for giving me the idea for this story.  I absolutely fell in love with it and writing it has given me so much joy.  I really, really hope you enjoy reading it as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it.

I can’t remember the last time I couldn’t sleep because I was so excited to write and I have you to thank you for that.  Thank you for being patient while I worked on it.  To make up for taking so long, I created you a pretty collage.  My sorry attempt at being artistic.

Enjoy and I hope the new year provides you with abundant blessings!!! Happy Holidays! 

(p.s. a little reverse shoutout to our beloved Princess Leia is included, as promised)

Summary: Emma and her family have returned to the Enchanted Forest, villains vanquished and lives safe from future calamities.  But as happy as they are, Killian realizes that something is bothering Emma.  He sets out to bring her the joy of a Storybrooke Christmas in a land full of magic.

Rating: a most romantic and festive M - these two can’t keep their hands off each other!

“I’m going to be completely honest here. When I first heard that [tyler] was going to be writing a book, because I was very biased about youtuber books at the time, I thought, great. It’s going to be some self-indulgent crap, because that was sort of the perception I had of youtubers in their 20’s writing books about their life, I’m like, you haven’t even lived your life. This book changed my opinion on youtubers writing books, honestly, and to be able to do that, you know it must be a good book.”

Karasuno regulars + suga + oikawa + kuroo reactions when an older person is flirting with their s/o while on a night time date. (nsfw if you can) thank you this blog is amazing and i may or may not have read all the posts here ohohoho

first of all thank you! of course i can do this for you. not to nsfw but i hope you like it anyway - Emma x

Daichi wouldn’t want to cause to much of a scene so he’d just pull out his scary captain face and glare at the person as he made his way over to them. He’d protectively wrap an arm around their waist and would continue to glare at the person.  If they still wouldn’t leave Daichi would just pull his partner in for a long and heated kiss which would result in the person finally leaving,

Suga would have a frown on his face when he saw that his partner was being hit on by someone that looked older. He’d have the same frown on his face as he went and grabbed his partner by the arm. With a now happy grin he’d ask them if they wanted to dance with him and then the two would make their way away from the person. When they began to dance Suga would pull them close and place a gentle kiss on their forehead. 

Asahi would unintentionally scare them away before he’d even made it back to his partners side. Noticing that they were older than him, Asahi would feel slightly intimidated which would result in the look that usually scares people off coming onto his face. Upon seeing the tall and scary Asahi the person hitting on his partner would quickly blurt something out before running away, leaving both Asahi and his partner confused.

Tanaka would go over with his intimidating face on as he stood behind his parter with a protective arm wrapped around their waist. He wouldn’t say anything and just continue to glare at them until eventually things started to get awkward and the person would run off. Tanaka would be so proud that his intimidation had worked for once and would spend the rest of the night gloating about it.

The fact that the person hitting on his partner was not only older but taller as well wouldn’t faze Noya at all. He’d stomp over to his partner before pulling them against him while sending glares to the person. Noticing that they weren’t leaving would cause him to frown so he’d just pull his partner in close for a kiss in turn causing the person to leave.

Hinata wouldn’t even realise that they were hitting on his partner at first. He’d happily go over and send the new person smiles and start a casual conversation and would bring up volleyball. Eventually Hinata would notice the looks that they were sending to his partner and would frown before deciding to pull out the intimidation techniques that Tanaka had taught him. If that didn’t work he’d just drag his partner away with a frown. 

Kageyama would walk over with a scowl on his face and an angry look in his eyes. He’d stare down the person as he stood behind his partner protectively and if this didn’t stop them he’d begin with rude comments such as ‘dumbass’. Eventually he’d just give up and ask his partner if they wanted to go get a drink together before leaving the person behind.

Tsukishima wouldn’t say anything at all. He’d take a hold of his partners hand before taking them off in search of somewhere private with a scowl on his face. Once he’d found an empty room or a closet he’d push his partner against the wall and roughly kiss down their neck, making sure to leave lots of hickeys to make sure that people realised that they were taken.  

Kuroo would lazily wrap and arm around his partner waist and do his best to keep a calm demeanour although that wouldn’t stop him from glaring into the persons eyes. He’d do his best to annoy the person in order to get them to leave by making comments and pulling faces at them. If that continued to fail he’d choose trail kisses down his partners neck as he hugged them from behind and glared at the annoying flirt.

Oikawa would happily approach with a wild smile on his face as he greeted his partner cheerily. He’d smile over at the person with the same smile, his charming act not dropping as he greeted them although there would be a threatening edge to his voice. He’d begin to tell them about his amazing partner and about how great their relationship was, making sure they got the picture.
