After 40 years apart, these sisters found each other working the same job 

Pok-nam Shin, now known as Holly Hoyle O'Brien, and Eun-Sook Shin, now known as Meagan Hughes, were both orphaned from a young age in their native South Korea in the 1970s before being adopted by American families. "In my heart, I knew,“ O'Brien told Sarasota Herald-Tribune. "I knew she was out there somewhere.” It turns out she was right in front of her.

Klance Fic Rec 3

Please check the archive warnings and fic summaries before reading to make sure you’re gonna be okay with the fic contents!  Spoilers for Season 1 abound.  Plenty of other fics that don’t fit my personal reading preference are on AO3, so you should check them out if you have time! (I tend to avoid character death fics or really short ones.) 

Past fic recs found here.


Complete

  • tropical drink melting in your hand; we’ll be falling in love by jojotxt – beach resort au where keith gets a job at the rental shack and lance is a lifeguard / surfing instructor, and the whole thing is really cute
  • surfing lessons by shingekinogtfo – lance is bad at surfing and tries to show off for the cute lifeguard with a mullet, but he doesn’t seem to have the memo that almost-drowning isn’t a very good flirting tactic
  • baby love me cause i’m playing on the radio by dizzyondreams – cute college/uni au where keith is in charge of a radio show and lance keeps calling in to criticize his music taste and request songs
  • Faking Flight by prettyshiroic (AnalystProductions) – keith gets really angry after lance flies off in ep.6, and the other paladins help him sort out his feelings because he’s not very good at that
  • Doctor’s Orders by genericfanatic – post season 1 where lance and keith end up stranded on the same planet, and they slowly learn to work together and tolerate each other before they’re rescued
  • Found in Translation by princevince – some cute fluff where lance takes keith on a stargazing date in the castle of lions
  • Royal(ly fucked) by Ididntsignupforthisshit (Oliver_Ravenwood) – i love this bc lance is dancing and signing to music that hunk, pidge, and allura are playing, and shiro brings his deaf cousin keith to watch (i’m just excited bc i rarely see fics talking about sign language, go read it)
  • Humidity by Metis_Ink – i am always a sucker for fics featuring lance’s family bc i just want him to be happy, so this was a pleasant fic to read where lance takes keith home to visit them
  • Call me now, it’s urgent. by morvish – in which lance has absolutely terrible timing with comm calls to keith and is bad at prioritizing
  • It’s still gay even if it’s in space and you cry a lot (it might actually make it gayer) by Universebound – keith has a crush on lance and is afraid of how people will react, but he slowly comes out to the team when he feels safe, and everything is okay

  • Halcyon Days by bolbessa – prince au with a fairytale sort of vibe, in which lance is a longlost prince of a kingdom and keith is a knight sent to bring him back to the current king
  • Fill in the Space by Star_right – post season 1 where lance and keith end up stranded on an alien planet together; it’ll be interesting to see what happens next!
  • The Lion’s Den by Gigapoodle – coffeeshop aus where shiro owns the fic’s eponymous coffee shop in which a bunch of teenagers end up hanging out and becoming friends; it’s cute so far, check it out!

I was asked by dear @amadryades the numbers 7,17,18 but tumblr deleted my answer (AGAIN!) so here I go… 

7.Chai: Where do you want to travel next?

I’d love to travel pretty much everywhere but my top 2 destinations at the moment are Paris and Florence !

14.Peppermint tea: What is your favourite gif at the moment?  
see below :3

18.Pu-erh tea: What is a book you can recommend to others? 

Well I’d recommend the complete poems by my longlost soulmate, Lorca <3 Also, anything Wilde because the guy is extremely witty (Last I read was The Importance of being Earnest and I PRAY to see the play by a good cast sometime). I also loved Chimaera by Karagatsis (thanks to the AMAZING play) and the Symposium by Plato (I want to read more Plato actually). I’d surely recomend Ofis Kai Krino by Kazantzakis as well (loved it!). Oh and if you want something light and entertaining for the summer, some Auguste Corteau will do! If you deduce some hedonism in what I read well, I guess you’re not wrong *blushes*

p.s. I’d also recommend Fleurs du Mal but I know you already love that one!!!

Thank you for the questions <3 <3 !!

Masochistic Desires

I kinda sorta really want these to happen, in a masochistic way. Even though these things are kind of cracky and borderline stupid:

  • Mey-Rin dying in Sebastian’s arms (cue A Little Fall of Rain- “Meyrin, I’m here.” “You’re here- that’s all I need to know… Mr. Sebastian, don’t you fret)
  • Sieglinde falling in love with Ciel but then realizing he only has eyes for Lizzie (so I can make an edit for “I’m Not That Girl”; but then Ciel gets shoved out of the way when Sullivan and Lizzie become BFFs lol)
  • Snake fighting Finny over Ciel’s lie about the Noah’s Ark circus
  • Madame Red coming back as a bizarre doll and fighting Grell
  • Diederich sacrificing himself for Ciel, ending his last words with “like father like son- you Phantomhives will have to take care of yourselves from now on… I’ve done my duty… I can’t be your fag anymore”
  • William realizing shinigami HQ has been hiding a corrupt scandal from him
  • Sebastian’s pocketwatch breaking in a fight
  • Bard having to choose between Phantomhive manor and a longlost war comrade come back to life

Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there, to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or to help you figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be (possibly your roommate, neighbor, coworker, longlost friend, lover, or even a complete stranger) but when you lock eyes with them, you know at that very moment that they will affect your life in some profound way.

And sometimes things happen to you that may seem horrible, painful, and unfair at first, but in reflection you find that without overcoming those obstacles you would have never realized your potential, strength, willpower, or heart.

Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness, and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, whatever they may be, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere. It would be safe and comfortable, but dull and utterly pointless.

The people you meet who affect your life, and the success and downfalls you experience help to create who you become. Even the bad experiences can be learned from. In fact, they are probably the most poignant and important ones. If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive them, for they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious when you open your heart. If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because in a way, they are teaching you to love and how to open your heart and eyes to things.

Make every day count!!! Appreciate every moment and take from those moments everything that you possibly can for you may never be able to experience it again. Talk to people that you have never talked to before, and actually listen. Let yourself fall in love, break free, and set your sights high. Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don’t believe in yourself, it will be hard for others to believe in you. You can make of your life anything you wish. Create your own life then go out and live it with absolutely no regrets.

Amazing news for Sherlock Holmes fans | The Independent

A lost Sherlock Holmes story written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, has been unearthed.

Walter Elliot, an 80-year-old historian, stumbled upon the “great little story” in a collection written to raise funds for the flood-hit Scottish town of Selkirk at the turn of the 20th century.

“Sherlock Holmes: Discovering the Border Burghs and, By Deduction, the Brig Bazaar” was sold in a collection of short stories called The Book o’ the Brig.

The story dates back over a century and Mr Elliot, a retired woodcutter, was given the 48-page book 50 years ago. He recently found it in his attic, and it will go on display at the Cross Keys Selkirk Pop-Up Community Museum.

It was put together to raise funds for a wooden bridge that crossed the Ettrick after its predecessor was destroyed by flooding in 1902. Conan Doyle was a visitor to Selkirk and agreed to contribute to the book. It was sold at a bazaar to raise funds.

Mr Elliot told the Daily Record: “He really must have thought enough of the town to come down and take part.”

The story follows Holmes’ deducing the fact that Watson was going to the Border country. Watson also says he is “going to Selkirk in aid of a bridge”.

“I have no idea if it has ever been published – I’ve never seen it,” Mr Elliot said.

(NEW CANON!!!!!)
