:D you're doing the 3 sentence gifs too! What about Shunk + using the communal kitchen at 3am during finals week

When Shiro wandered into the dorm kitchen at 3 AM, with a cup of microwavable mac and cheese in his hands, he didn’t expect to see someone else there, and he expected to be ordered to sit down and taste it even less.

It turns out, Hunk is a junior with a penchant for stress baking, and his usual taste tester had been gone for the weekend.

Two weeks later, Shiro discovers he likes the taste of Hunk’s lips just as much as he likes his cupcakes.

(Send me a prompt and a pairing and I’ll write a 3 sentence fic)

A Good Heart

‘Your Holiness, what advice would you give to lay followers so that they might progress towards kindness and compassion?

First of all, we must recognize the great capacity we all have within. In Buddhism we speak of the Buddha nature present in each individual. But without going into that, as human beings we have certain emotions, such as determination or intelligence; the combination of these two offers many possibilities. It is important to ally our intelligence with good intentions. Without intelligence we cannot accomplish very much. Without good intentions, we will not know whether the exercise of our intelligence is constructive or destructive. That is why it is important to have a good heart. Let us not forget that all these qualities are part of our basic nature.’

- The Dalai Lama, Beyond Dogma, The Challenge of the Modern World.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
