the things they include to take up space

anonymous asked:

If one hypothetically wanted to read your Eldritch Abomination Garfield fic, how would one go about finding it as directly searching for 'garfield' hypothetically does not include the fic?

“They bought it?” Lyman asked as Jon hung up the phone.

“I got the contract,” Jon confirmed, dazed. “I’m — I’m syndicated.”

“You did it, man!” Lyman said, clapping him on the back. Odie barked.

“They’re already thinking about merchandising deals,” Jon continued, staring into space.

“I told you things were going to turn around for you,” Lyman said with a nod. Odie continued barking, making it clear that he was not just trying to be supportive. “Hey, look, I’ve gotta take the dog for a walk. If the alarm goes off while I’m gone, can you take dinner out of the oven?”

“Yeah,” Jon said, with no real conception of what he was agreeing to. He still had not yet finished processing that phone call, the idea that he was going to be paid, consistently, that he was a working cartoonist, that his comics would be in papers. Merchandising deals. Merchandising.

It was not until he heard the door that Jon realized he was alone in the apartment.

Just him, and Garfield.

From the corner, it growled.

Jon’s heart spasmed; he hadn’t realized it was in the same room. “H—hey,” he said. It would have been a dumb thing to say if it was a normal cat. It was a dumber thing to say under the circumstances. Its eyes glowed red in the shadows. “How are you?” he asked, then winced as the cat growled again. “Heard the good news?” he asked weakly.

MY END OF THE CONTRACT HAS BEEN FULFILLED

It rumbled through his brain like an earthquake, words without words. He covered his ears even though it wouldn’t help. “Yeah, thanks for—”

I WILL FEED

Jon’s heart spasmed again, overwhelmed with the sense of a hunger not his own. “Right, about that—”

YOU WILL FEED ME it said, words written in blood, thick and hot.

“—yes, I got that, I’m just not really sure what I’m supposed to—”

MEAT and the word throbbed, tore.

“Would chicken be okay?”

UNACCEPTABLE it said in broken bone and jellied marrow.

“I don’t want to stereotype you by assuming you want to eat my roommate—”

YES GIVE ME HIS HEART it said, pulsing, torn flesh.

“—but you can’t eat Lyman.”

I͇̤͜ ̭̩W̨͕̪̠͙I̧̫͍͕̤̥̥̥L̜̜̭͔̪͢L̡͉͍͍͓̣ ͇F̤̜E̤̱̼̩͙̺͢E̥̳̫D̯͚̰ͅ

The glowing eyes moved from the shadows, grew larger, taller. Hellfire, if fire could cast dark instead of light, orange and red, fire and blood. The indistinct shape that might have been a cat became an indistinct shape that might have been a man, large, always large. Jon shrank back as it stretched to fill the room, tried not to look directly at it. Hot breath and sharp teeth against his skin, even though it couldn’t have been, because he was still wearing his jacket.

There was a chiming sound.

WHAT WAS THAT

“Uh.” Jon swallowed, hard. “Dinner?”

FOOD

“Yes,” Jon said, “but I don’t know if you can eat people food…”

Garfield sat in the middle of the floor, wide as it was tall. Its gaze was baleful.

“Right. You can eat whatever you want.” Slowly Jon inched around the cat to head toward the kitchen. “I don’t really know what it is, though. It might be… vegan.”

Garfield hissed, the sound of pain, and Jon fled toward the oven.

I SMELL MEAT

Jon stopped himself from telling the cat get off the counter. “I think it’s a casserole,” he said, removing the dish to set it on the stove. He gingerly removed the lid, his hands safely wrapped in oven mitts. “Oh. It’s lasagna.”

GIVE IT TO ME

“It has to cool,” Jon said. Garfield hissed again, and the sound turned Jon’s blood to fiberglass. He backed away, and the cat leapt bodily and entirely into the baked pasta. It did not seem bothered by the fact that the pasta sauce was still bubbling, and Jon tried not to look at the void of its mouth. A black hole rimmed with fangs, an absence of all light, drawing in all that it touched to disappear within.

WHAT IS THIS it asked, and a hellfire paw batted at a stretchy piece of mozzarella.

“… cheese?”

The cat-shaped thing nodded, still sitting in the dish of lasagna.

WE DO NOT HAVE THIS

“You don’t have cheese in hell?”

It nodded again.

“I guess that’s what makes it hell.” If Garfield appreciated this observation, it did not show it. It cracked open its maw again, more lasagna disappearing, and Jon looked away. “That lasagna was supposed to feed us for a week,” he sighed. “How much longer do I need to do this?” he asked.

UNTIL YOU ARE SATISFIED

“Until I’m satisfied?”

YOU MUST FEED ME TO SATISFY YOUR HUNGER

Realization dawned. “Wait, but — I thought this was a one-time thing.”

IT WAS NOT

“If you leave, I get fired?”

PERHAPS

“So I might still be able to make it on my own.”

DO YOU BELIEVE YOUR SKILL IS ENOUGH TO BRING YOU ALL THAT YOU DESIRE

Jon thought of the portfolio sitting in his room, and sagged. “… no.”

It grew, limbs stretching, claws turning to fingers and then claws again. It sat on the counter like a solid mirage, licking red from its hands.

YOU WILL HAVE RICHES BEYOND YOUR WILDEST DREAMS it said in truffle oil and fur and gold. SO LONG AS I AM FED YOU WILL NEVER KNOW HUNGER

Syndication and merchandising deals and maybe someday a cartoon on television. His signature in every newspaper in every house in the country. In the world, even. He raked his fingers through his curls and tried not to look at its claws.

“I guess I’m stuck with you, then,” Jon said.

It didn’t slide off the counter the way a man would, shifted off like drifting smoke or licking flames, stood and was no shorter. Tall and broad and solid, a weight to its presence as it moved closer. Jon shrank back again as it loomed, and this show of submission seemed to please it. Hot breath and sharp teeth against his skin again, and he shivered.

YES YOU ARE



Straight up one of the worst things about capitalism is just the effect that having to work so much has on our ability to maintain relationships. Relationships all take work, and it is sometimes hard work, but part of that work just includes making a space of time wherein you can just talk to or hang out with someone. Any given week there are a good 10 people I want to see, or call, or something, and I just can’t hang out with everyone in a week. I sometimes feel quite worried about one friend feeling alienated because I’ve seen another, whose schedule matches mine better, or talked to another, etc. For now this is why it is so important to just periodically remind people that you love or miss them. But that’s so hard! If I had one more day off per week, all of my relationships would be much, much stronger. This is an important part of alientation. The older I get, the more I work, the more I understand that. It’s hard! I love my friends and it’s hard to show all of them.

lance headcanon (slight langst??)

headcanon that lance loves coloring books. back at home, his older sister would always get him superhero-themed coloring books & they would snack on their chocolate milk and dinosaur-shaped cookies after school. they still kept that ritual all the way through high school. it brings him fond memories. so for lance’s birthday, hunk mentions this and though they have no coloring books in space, everyone pitches in and draws all sorts of things using old papers lying around for lance to color in. keith takes pride in his batman drawings. hunk and pidge work on developing crayons. 

they present this to lance, all their drawings messily bundled together and homemade crayons tied together with hunk’s bandana. 

lance tears up and thanks all of them, including keith. 

he begins to color every night as a stress reliever. whenever he feels down about himself, he remembers that the team put time and effort into doing this for him, and so he goes to bed with a smile on his face and dreams of home.

Disclaimer: So this A-Z NSFW tag is pretty intense in my tl right now so I want to try because these photos are giving me ~feelings~.

A-Z NSFW: Nakamoto Yuta

A = Aftercare
I feel like Yuta would be the kind of guy who wouldn’t like you getting up after. He would attend to you very sweetly and will clean you after(along with occasional teasings because he just couldn’t resist), and would ask if you’re okay or sore.

B = Body part (Their favorite body part of theirs and also their partner’s)
His favorite body part is his back because he loves how you crawl it. When your fingers clutch onto his back and scratch it painfully, it only turns him on more because he can feel how much you react to what he’s doing. His favorite part of yours is your stomach. He loves how smooth it feels and how it’s always ready for his ~cum~.

C = Cum
While he doesn’t pay much attention (he isn’t conscious) to it, he likes it when it’s all over you just so he could clean you up all over after too. He likes getting to touch you whenever he can.

D = Dirty Secret (a dirty secret of theirs)
Yuta once saw you cleaning the kitchen with your apron on and your hair tied up and turned him on. He liked it so much you didn’t know it was the reason he started taking you to cosplay shops.

E = Experience (How experienced are they? Do they know what they’re doing?)
While Yuta isn’t a virgin, he isn’t really experienced at all. But he knows a lot of tricks being with noonas who taught him how to properly please a woman.

F = Favorite position
Yuta likes being on top just so he could put your legs on his shoulders or circle it around his hips. He likes having you all hot and bothered and nothing to put your hands on but his back or the sheets. Also, disheveled hair? A MAJOR TURN ON.

G = Goofy (Are they more serious in the moment, or are they humorous, etc)
Yuta is very flexible and would really depend on the situation. Angry sex? He will slam you on the wall and put one of your legs on his shoulder. Cuddly making up sex? He’ll whisper sweet words and kiss your tears away. Public bathroom quickie? He would tell nonsense jokes so you would be having troubles trying to keep it down.

H = Hair (How well groomed are they)
Yuta is very well groomed. While he is a manly man, the pictures above shows no sign of a happy trail.

I = Intimacy (How are they during the moment, romantic aspect…)
Yuta is a very romantic guy but he does it in ways that are too subtle for you to notice. When you’re busy, he wouldn’t take his eyes off you but the moment you look at him, he will look way and pretend to be doing something. His phone is full of stolen pictures of you and videos of you snoring or sleeping. Before you go to sleep, when you’re half-dreaming, he would whisper sweet things in Japanese just so you wouldn’t know what it means.

J = Jack Off (Masturbation)
I feel like Yuta is a very needy man and sometimes when you’re not together he would randomly call you and the talk would eventually lead to phone sex and lots of jacking off.

K = Kink (One or more of their kinks)
Hickeys. Yuta likes putting marks on you, mostly on your neck, the swell of your breasts, in between your thighs, and your underarms (that’s his major kink).

L = Location (Favorite places to do the do)
Because you both are adventurous and exhibitionists, he likes doing it in public bathroom stalls and fitting rooms. He likes small spaces so you have not much room to move.

M = Motivation (What turns them on, gets them going)
Fighting. Most of your fights lead to both of you out of breath, hot and needy, that leads up to sex. Sometimes though, when you utter random Japanese words, he just loses it. But what keeps him going is you whispering how good he is in his ears or you just licking it.

N = NO (Something they wouldn’t do, turn offs)
I can’t imagine turn off but I think something that Yuta won’t do is force you to do it even if you’re not feeling it. Even though he has a high libido, he respects you and wants everything to be consensual.

O = Oral (Preference in giving or receiving, skill, etc)
One of Yuta’s highest skill is using his tongue. Not only does he use it for language, it also knows all the nooks and crannies of a woman’s genital. While he also likes being given, he only wants it if you’re up to it.

P = Pace (Are they fast and rough? Slow and sensual? etc.)
Like I said, Yuta depends on the situation. He can be pretty intense sometimes but he also knows when to be sweet and sensual.

Q = Quickie (Their opinions on quickies rather than proper sex, how often, etc.)
A lot. He just couldn’t keep it in his pants when he’s with you and he wouldn’t be able to focus on anything other than having you so you both have become accustomed to finding closed areas/spaces when out together or with friends.

R = Risk (Are they game to experiment, do they take risks, etc.)
I think once you started getting comfortable with your sexual relationship, you came up with a list of things you want to try and explore and while you weren’t really serious with checking things up on said list, whenever you come across one situation that is included, you find ways to fulfill it.

S = Stamina (How many rounds can they go for, how long do they last…)
Yuta plays sports and is a very active dancer so I think he could go on all night as long as you’re up for it. While he can last long, the first round is very intense and exciting so he doesn’t last long during the first.

T = Toy (Do they own toys? Do they use them? On a partner or themselves?)
Yuta’s toys are limited to blindfolds and costumes(if that counts).

U = Unfair (how much they like to tease)
He likes pleasing you but often times when you become a pain in the ass and get on his nerves, he would tease you to the point of begging. He would pet your neck and touch you in the most extreme places (side of your breasts, your thighs) but never further, and then he would stand up and leave you hanging while he takes a bath, and then tease you further as he emerges from the bathroom naked to the day he was born.

V = Volume (How loud they are, what sounds they make)
I imagine Yuta would make deep grunts and the occasional ‘fuck’ and ‘you’re so sexy’ and then a very deep loud grunt when he finally comes.

W = Wild Card (Get a random headcanon for the character of your choice)
The first time you crossed something on your list was when you were having a fancy dinner wth your friends and you felt hands slowly making their way under the slit of your nightgown. It suddenly dawned to you why he ‘accidentally’ bumped into your beasts earlier while preparing for the dinner. He was going slow and you were getting used to the feeling of two fingers inside you when he suddenly pushed another, making you squeal. Your friends gave you a look and you had to pretend that you bit your tongue while trying to keep a straight face. You had to stuff food in your mouth to prevent you from screaming when you eventually came, seeing a satisfied smirk on Yuta’s face.

X = X-Ray (Let’s see what’s going on in those pants, picture or words)
(I don’t know how to do this… or describe lmao) I feel like Yuta is pretty hung. Not that thick, but a bit long. (Okay, this is making me blush so I’m stopping)

Y = Yearning (How high is their sex drive?)
Way up. Yuta likes sex, and he likes doing it with you. He wants to do it whenever it’s possible.

Z = ZZZ (… how quickly they fall asleep afterward)
After he’s done cleaning you up, he wouldn’t bother getting dressed and would just slump at the bed with you, dropping his arms and legs all over you, trapping you so you couldn’t get up. 

anonymous asked:

oh my GOSH. UHM. would you mind writing maybe a thing for junkrat/roadhog x smoll shy reader (either poly or separate is fine, whichever is easiest for you!) about how you think they would try to fluster/tease reader after finding out reader has a crush on them?

I’d love to, and I’m going to do all three, separate and together because I have different Ideas for them.

Separate Junkrat:

(Y/N) couldn’t help feeling like this. She adored the junker, and everything about him. He drove her wild, his dirt hygiene, his love for explosions. His exhilarating laugh that was contagious even when hearing it across the room.

They ran a hand through their soft (H/C) hair to calm their nerves. Over and over in their head the repeated the words.

‘Jamison, I like you, would you like to go on a date with me? ’

Breathing normal, palms de-sweated onto their trousers. They were ready. They entered his workshop as instructed. Jamison said friends don’t need to knock. Seeing him made the nerves rush back.

He sat at hunched over his desk, tongue slightly stuck out as he tweaked at his launcher. He looked perfect to (Y/N), which made this even harder. Of course he would say no. She is so small, barely 5 ft, and he’s a towering 6'6. Not to mention the difference in personality. Jamison is boisterous, loud, bubbly and crazy, but (Y/N). They are shy, quiet and tend to keep out of the way and to themselves. Maybe its part of the attraction, their also attracted to what they want to be, and maybe Jamison can get them out of their shell.

The Junker had still not yet noticed them. His concentration solely on his work.

(Y/N) coughed barely loud enough for a mouse to hear. They pinched themselves and coughed again louder. This time he heard and looked over.

“(Y/N)” He cheered. “Come ‘ere” They complied and walked over, and sat on a chair next to him. It was mostly silent again as he got back to working, just a few mumbles and sighs coming from Junkrat.

(Y/N) opened their mouth. Before closing it as loud laughter echoed around the room.

“Hahaaa finished. What'cha think? Ain’t she a beut? ” Jamison asked staring at (Y/N). A large grin on his face, sparkles of wonder and excitement danced in his eyes. (Y/N) felt their cheeks growing hot from a rising blush. They nodded furiously, their tongue tied and unable to speak.“ You aoight?” more nodding followed. Oh how they wished they weren’t nervous. If only they could be like Junkrat and just say exactly what they want when they want without worrying.

“Jam.. ” (Y/N) croaked out.

“ Yeh? ”

‘Do it, ask him ask him’ They shook their head smiled and left. Once they left the workshop they grabbed their head with both hands and screamed with a closed mouth. 'If you cant do it now when are you going to?’ they sighed and walked away.

—–
It wasnt hard for everyone else to figure out they had a crush. They just had to watch. (Y/N) would dreamily stare at Jamison whenever he was in a room. She would blush as bright as a ripe tomato, stutter and furiously shake their head whenever he spoke to them, and if you could get (Y/N) to talk, it was all about him. The only person who didn’t pick up on it was Jamison.

The junker doesn’t exactly know what a crush looks like, never having someone have one on him. He’s had them before but usually he just out right says it, instead of becoming a blubbering mess. So after weeks of watching the poor love struck (Y/N) Roadhog decides to take action.

“Oi hog? What'cha think about a heist tomorrow? ” Jamison asked as his best friend and fellow Junker sauntered over to him.

“ We need to talk”

“Er aoight”

“(Y/N) ”

“ Yeh, wot 'bout them? ”

“ They have feelings for you”

“What kind of feelings? Sad feelings? Happy feelings? ”

“ Love feelings”

“Wha- oh” It took a while, but finally he saw it. The blushes, the stutter, to chute giggles every time he spoke to dreamy eyes whenever they looked at him. He noticed everything about them, he just didn’t know it was caused by a crush.

“Hooley Dooley”

It didn’t take long for the teasing to begin. He would stop them in the hallway and pin them against the wall, hands either side of their head.

“Aoight love” Is all he would say, then enjoy the show. He loved making them blush. Nicknames would develop. Love, Beautiful, dynamite, the bomb, he’s also used the nickname sex bomb which almost caused them to faint. He likes to get really close, by hugging them or leaning on them, to feel the warmth radiate off of them. He liked to hold their hand, (Y/N) quickly pulls away and wipes the sweat of, then slowly hands their hand back. Jamison kissing it before holding it again. All while (Y/N) again almost faints or runs away. Wanting to scream in delight. Instead they stay sat a serial killer like smile plastered on their red face.

After a month of enduring the sweet torture, (Y/N) is again cornered by Jamison in a hallway.

“Hi” they said clearly. After enduring for the past weeks their confidence had built a little.

“You, me on a date. You’ll love it”

(Y/N)’s jaw dropped, their eyes widened. They nodded. Jamison then picked them up and threw them over their shoulder laughing as the ran down the hallway with them.

-
After two dates they are officially in a relationship. But this doesn’t stop Jamison from still teasing (Y/N), he loves to see them blush and get flustered, he thinks its the most adorable thing in the world as is one of the reasons why he loves you.


Sperate Roadhog:

Roadhog is completely different to Junkrat, in that he recognises the crush instantaneously.

Hog sat in his favourite spot polishing his hook, when (Y/N) slowly staggered over. Thumbs twiddling together, head down as they mumbled to them self. They looked up and noticed him staring at them, which made the blood rush to their cheeks and top of their ears. He huffed in amusement, they were cute. He tapped a spot next to him. (Y/N) sat down.

They love him, and can’t deny it. His quiet personality, his lovable soft squishy exterior. His strong possessive nature means they would always be safe with him. And his loving loyalty. They wanted to be his, for him to take care of them.

“M-Mako? ” He huffed.“ Er…. Wou-” Barely even a word escaped their lips before he wrapped his large arm around them. Swamping them into his embrace due to them being so small.

(Y/N) jumped at first and breathed heavily, making Mako laugh. After a while they calmed and enjoyed the touch.

From then on he would always just randomly bring them closer to him. Making (Y/N) fluster and blush but soon lean into him. He’d never admit it, unlike Junkrat, but he did enjoy teasing them. He loved seeing their reaction spread across their face and show through their body language. What he loved most was that it was him that was doing this to them, he was the one that was making (Y/N) blush and stutter and he adored it.

He would also lean on them, or randomly just pick them up and carry them to the place you where going. He would carry them to work, give them a piggy back to town, put them on his shoulder and take them home. (Y/N) would squeal in joy, making Mako’s heart skip and his feelings grow stronger.

One day the two were sat together in silence. Out of no where he lifts (Y/N) up and places them on his lap. They almost faint, their face redder than blood and hotter than the sun. Roadhog snorted in laughter and rubbed their back to calm them.

They share lots of silent moments, silent hugs. Silent kisses, Mako kissing (Y/N)’s cheek then acting like nothing happened as they try to regain their composure.

Nicknames would include, cutie, love, darling, lovely cute things.

It only took a couple of weeks before Mako asked (Y/N) out. Taking them to a picnic in the park for their first date and they instantly began a relationship the day after. Like Junkrat the teasing wouldn’t stop. But they both enjoyed it.


Both:

(Y/N) sat staring at the two Junkers and sighed. A little loudly, as Mako noticed and waved them over. They sat up straight and blushed. What do they do? They hesitantly stood and plodded over to the males. Mako motioned to a space between them. It was a small gap but (Y/N) easily slipped in. They sat their for ages. Often the males would forget about the being between them only remembering if they turned and saw them, or when they would shift their position slightly.

To (Y/N) this was heaven and exactly where they wanted to be. Mako knew already, but Jamison needed to catch up.

Once (Y/N) unintentionally fell asleep on their laps. So Mako took the moment to tell Jamison.

“Jamison”

“Yeh? ”

“ (Y/N) has a crush on us”

“Wait really? ” Hog nodded.

“ Woohoo"He cheered too loudly, waking (Y/N) “Oops”

They stirred and hummed peacefully, though when they turned and saw the Junkers staring down at them they jumped, and fell onto the floor.

“Sorry sorry” They yipped. Making the two males laugh.

Mako brought them back up onto his lap and hugged them tight. Jamison placing a kiss on the cheek before they were let go.

(Y/N) froze, shocked by what just happened. But very happy.

Both of them teasing would consist of getting squished between both of them in hugs. Getting kissed on both cheeks at the same time. Getting carried by one or the other. Them both fighting over who gets to carry them. While they stand frozen, blushing, hot and sweaty. (Y/N) still can’t believe their fighting over them.

Junkrat likes to pin them up against a wall. And Roadhog saves them, but then puts them over their shoulder and carries them away.

Nap time. They are sat together. Both of them hugging (Y/N) between them, they are so comfortable they stay like that and fall asleep. Both males have got a photo of (Y/N) sleeping and they cherish it. (Y/N) gets super flustered when the photos are brought out. They boys love it.

Mako is the one asking them out on a date, for both of them. All three go out and become a trio on the date.

Teasing doesn’t end here either. More photos, more naps. Lots of three way bear hugs and laughing as (Y/N) tries to fan and calm them self down from becoming a blushing mess.


(NSFW BONUS:)
They love seeing them flustered in the bedroom, all red and shy, hiding their face behind their hands. Hiding their body. The males moving their hands, telling them how beautiful they are before loving them all through the night. Even though they are usually shy and quiet, boy are they loud during sex. The guys love it.

Apology

Note: I’ve been going through a little bit of a writer’s block lately, but I hope this one came out okay.

Request: Hey!! Can i request a Daveed x reader where they get in a big fight and he finds her later in the night drunkenly confessing all of her insecurities about their relationship to someone in the cast and then he takes her home and make up in the morning? Lots of fluff maybe slight angst? I might love your work a little too much😉 thanks so much💙

Word Count: 2066

Pairing: Daveed x Reader

Warnings: some angst, hurtful words, language

Daveed had been stressing all day because he had to finish three songs by the end of the week. He had absolutely no ideas or inspiration. He had writer’s block at the worst time he could ever possibly get it.

He sat on the couch with his macbook as you sat next to him, suggesting ideas. He only gave short or one word answers.

“Write about something you’re going through. Or an experience.” You suggested.

“Can’t think of any.”

You gave him another idea. “Okay…write about getting drunk. Partying.”

“Done it.”

“Take a break, then.”

“Can’t.”

What I Hate Love You was all about

While reading all the posts concerning I Hate Love You I noticed that a lot of people said something like this – “I haven’t even read the fic, but what you are saying is horrible…” And, honestly, if I had read only those posts but not the actual fic itself and wouldn’t know how it ends I might be feeling the same way. That’s why I want to explain what was I Hate Love You is all about.

anonymous asked:

Could you do a head canon about chris argent and how he would make up with you after a big fight ?

Chris Argent making up with you after a big fight would include:

  • He would have distanced himself after the fight to take some space and clear his head. Upon cooling off some, that would be when he’d come back looking for you to make up.
  • Chris would show up at your door empty handed, having wanted to make up so badly that he hadn’t thought to bring anything like flowers or something of the like. As soon as you open the door he’d already be mid-apology.
  • Chris would tell you how much you mean to him and how he wouldn’t want to mess things up with you over a fight.
  • You’d let him in, because how could you not?
  • He’d spend the night trying to show you that he was really sorry for what had happened, and/or trying to come to a compromise on the issue if it was one that hadn’t been worked out yet.
  • Chris would make you dinner. A big plus is that his apologies after big fights usually involve him making dinner in my mind, because I have a head canon that Chris can cook pretty decently. I like the idea that Chris and Victoria equally spent time in the kitchen and so he’s able to handle himself around pots and pans after all those years of cooking dinner for his family.
  • You’d curl up on the couch after all things had been worked out and watch a movie with him that you may or may not pay any attention to.

You know, Shiro really lives up to his space dad name, and I love how he’s always trying to be the more mature Paladin, when it comes to things like this. They are just playing around, but he can’t seem to keep his dad caring nature from taking over. That’s why, when he says “all right, guys”… even if he is having fun, he wants to keep them safe, because who else will?

He knows they are all kids, including himself, he’s just a few years older, but his sense of responsibility, takes over him, even for little things like this, he wants them to take care of themselves.

But just like any other dad, sometimes he gives in to the crazy doings of his kids and just plays along.

He is like “Ok, now you’ve all done it! I’m serious now!”, and he is ready to show his kids how it’s done.

beyondtrash-voltrondumpster  asked:

Could you do headcanons for when the paladins ask out their crush, the reader, but are rejected?

Yes! Of course! Thank you so much for the request. This is more of a modern AU I guess? I still tried to include Coran and Allura but I didn’t know what to do with friends or no friends thing when you’re in space and you cant not be friends when you’re stuck in space.

 

I hope that made sense. Also this was very unnecessarily long and probably seems rushed but I tried :D

Shiro

 

• okay, first off, it’s very obvious Shiro is HEAD OVER HEELS for you
•he’s the type of person to not even realize his feelings until later on, even then, it’ll really take him a while to actually gather up the courage to even go up to you.
• he gets flowers
•maybe a kit-kat bar too, or whatever your favorite candy is.
•he’s quite traditional, actually..
•now, depending on where you are, he may or may not go up to you. Garrison? Eh, maybe, is it the end of the day and you’re just leaving? Hell yeah why not.
•if it were that case, he’d probably do his best to keep the flowers perfect, and you would ask about them all day only for him to avoid the question and change the subject as well.
•he’d pull the flowers out and some random candy or stuffed bear, start explaining himself and his feelings toward you, and top it off with a lovely but awkwardly cute smile, extreme blushing, and then shoving his face into the flowers and exhaling.
•now, depending on your answer, whether you’d like to stay friends or not, either way, he’d be heartbroken.
•if you want to stay friends ; I feel that he would be a lot less heartbroken, but it would be very difficult, because, I mean he likes you and finds you attractive so seeing you everyday after you reject him is soooooooo awkward especially for him.
•if you find that it’s awkward too, and don’t want to stay friends ; he’d be super devastated, would most likely go home and sulk while watching comedies and horror movies to keep his mind off of it.
•doesn’t work tho because he watched It Follows and now he thinks someone’s after him and doesn’t sleep and ends up thinking about you. Oops?

 

Lance

 

•why would you even say no honestly
•jk anyway
•so, knowing Lance and the way he is there would a LOT of build up toward the official confession.
•puns about how beautiful/handsome you are, how amazing you look today even though you didn’t even brush your hair and was up until 3
•pick-up lines toward the end of the day.
•he’d probably drive you somewhere (I hope he has a license) like a small shop down the street from yours or his house.
•buy you some candy and a slushee (if ya like them)
•will definitely without a doubt have his arm around your shoulder 99.9999998% of the time so just, let’s hope you’re comfortable with that.
•when it actually comes to asking you out he’ll stutter and then blurt the rest of it out with his eyes shut so tight.
•when you say no prepare to feel extremely guilty because instead of looking sad about it he does that thing where he tries to act all cool about it but he’s just…
•"no, no really it’s fine. here I can drive you home if you want. no really, it’s fine don’t worry. it’s my fault really so sorry to make you uncomfortable.“
•probably doesn’t answer any text messages from you or anyone else.
•he does hope to stay friends but wouldn’t mind if you didn’t, he thinks it’s understandable but would still beat himself up over it.

 

Keith

 

•once again why would you say no you’re lucky this kid even likes you a little bit I feel like he’ll yell at inanimate objects if he stubbed his toe or smthn
•but anyway.
•Keith is very attracted to you whether it’s because you’re nice, or you seem to look great no matter what you do
•like Shiro he keeps it simple and traditional and wouldn’t want to go all out because he’s afraid to be rejected (foreshadowing bye) in the end when he planned something so nice
•definitely got you starbursts or sour patch kids and if you don’t like them he’ll just put them away and get on with it
•he totally eats them later on k bye
•definitely got like one carnation.
•when he finally asks you he stutters but once it’s out he seems way too calm, like a lot calmer than you thought
•once he hears the no come from your mouth he just shuts down and says ‘oh, oh ok’
•seems kinda pissed in your eyes but he’s mostly angry at himself if anything. will definitely get up and apologize and then nod and walk off.
•please apologize to the boy at least, he’s very sensitive when it comes to opening up and I feel like after that he would be WAYYY too hesitant when it comes to opening up to people especially when he feels attracted to them

 

Hunk

 

•please don’t say no pleasepleSeplaesse
•he’s so wholesome and pure and lovely how
•now hunk being that way is sometimes a disadvantage, being too kind at times can get you killed. well not necessarily killed but it can cause trouble, especially if it’s the naive kind.
•though Hunk is very smart, so I doubt he would be clueless about anything.
•I do feel that Lance would probably be way too encouraging and say stuff like , “Hunk, buddy pal friendo, quit your worrying! They definitely like you, who wouldn’t! You’re a great person….” and blah blah blah
•Eventually goes up to you with some sort of food in his hands, most likely your favorite or one that triggers happy memories between you and him, and/or the paladins +Coran and Allura
•Pops the question, definitely looks dead inside
•literally has no expression and are, are his eyes,,, crossing?
•quite unfocused so when you finally and hopefully politely turn him down, you think he didn’t hear you.
•say his name a couple times and that’s when you realize that he did in fact hear you and he’s kind of just processing the information
•definitely just goes oMo and then falls to his knees and begs for your forgiveness
•"oh my gosh Y/n I am so sorry I made it awkward I didn’t mean it I just care for you and all that and I still wanna be friends please oh gosh I ruined our friendship”
•please tell him it’s ok and then pat his back and take him to a movie or home or whatever just help the poor boy he’s too sweet oh gosh
•take him to the carnival or arcade to cheer him up if you stay friends which is most likely because Hunk is too nice.

 

Pidge

 

•asked Lance for advice on how to do it
•immediate regret
•then went to ask Coran, but kinda just clapped her hands together, stared into space, and turned around after she thought about a possible 7-day lecture on asking people out
•Went straight to Shiro and Allura and they gave the best advice out of everyone except Allura started talking about stuff from Altea and dating in Altea and just paused and ran lolol
•took most of their advice, which was to just get straight to the point and maybe get them something
•got them something she made herself (she definitely made you a knockoff GameCube which actually was way better than the original somehow)
•she was flustered but it didn’t exactly seem like it because she wasn’t stuttering but her face was so goddamn red man
•kinda just ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ after she says it
•right when hears the word no, that word never leaves her head for the next week or maybe even two
•if you stay friends she’s definitely happy and won’t even mind if she still has feelings for you, she’s just glad that you two can still hang out together
•if you don’t want to stay friends she just awkwardly laughs and when she’s going to leave she apologizes and lets you keep what she made for you (no buts or ifs she insists you keep it)
•definitely needs to let out some type of steam so she probably just roasts everyone if they bother her peace and quiet times.
sunbathing // hs

This isn’t my best piece but i reblogged a few posts of pool harry today and i got inspired and i hope you all like it! thank you to anyone that reads and feedback is much appreciated :)

inspired by these posts (X) X

You never liked public pools.

You didn’t like the screaming children, the judgmental girls in bikini’s whispering about you as you walked by, the overcrowded atmosphere, or the weather. You did however love to swim on occasion and you loved sunbathing, but only if you were at a friend’s private pool or at a hotel where there were hardly many people in the pool. Harry had nagged you for most of the morning about going to down to have a quick dip in the pool and when you finally caved, he’d kissed you on the cheek and ran off to put on his swim shorts. These weren’t nearly as good as your favorite yellow pair, but he was beautiful nonetheless.

Request | Moving in With Ian Would Include:
  • Helping Ian find matching socks and tucking his shirt tags in most days before he leaves the house
  • Having petty arguments over whose turn it is to do dishes or take the garbage out (which can result in an array of things, from kisses on the cheek to sweeten one another up to Ian putting an almost pathetic amount of effort into perfecting his debate and presenting valid points)
  • Ordering takeout so often that the delivery guys knows both your names
  • Coming to absolutely despise watching movies with Ian, because every time, every fucking time, he will include so much unnecessary commentary and criticism that it ruins the plot and the characters and you become as annoyed with it as he does
  • Having no sense of personal space; Ian will totally come in and pee in the bathroom while you’re taking a shower or brushing your teeth, he’s shameless and doesn’t care
  • Adopting puppies omg oMG he loves dogs and you love dogs and there will be dogs and walking dogs and training dogs and feeding dogs and cuddling with dogs and having to make room on the bed so your dogs can climb up in the middle of the night and sleep with you and dogs
  • Your guys’ closets kind of melding together because you wear so many of his shirts to bed and honestly he kind of likes it, even if it means most of them smell like your perfume and shampoo when he wears them around
  • Calling out of work to lay around in bed with him all day, sleeping on and off and making out and only getting up to use the bathroom
  • Having to constantly scold Ian about eating food in bed and getting crumbs lost in your sheets
  • Having to do the laundry for him constantly because he always fucks it up somehow (it’s pretty straightforward, he probably purposely messes up so you’ll keep doing it)
  • Domestic life with a goofball I mean that’s pretty much the only way to describe it 

obi-blond-kenobi  asked:

Please write that post.

Hahaha, I assume this is in reference to my in-tag threat earlier to write a long rant In Defense Of Cornball Star Wars Dialogue. I don’t think I have enough time to write it all out. We’d be here forever.

Short version: I’m old, I’m not now nor have I ever been cool, and I don’t especially care if people think I have bad taste in made-up Space Wizard movies or TV shows, so I have zero qualms about just owning my love for this stuff. 

I include every last stupid thing every character says in the Lucas-Era Saga in that statement – the cartoonish villains, the Bold Pronouncements, Sweet Earnest Dorky Luke, Sweet Baby Anakin, The Unbearable Awkwardness of Young Adult Anakin and the Hopeless Drama of Darth Vader, the fact that every character takes this bananapants universe so seriously…I mean, really. THE OPERA SCENE. The fact that Luke, a 19-year-old farmer from the ass end of space, exasperatedly says “blast!” – a word I more often picture coming from a pompous old British dude. All the Super Serious Force Stuff that is just a bunch of made-up bullshit that people had to say with a straight face as though the Fate of the Universe depended on it. SIDIOUS AT THE END OF EPISODE 6 just full-on gnawing the scenery like the ridiculous, wicked drama queen he is. Anakin telling Padme that she’s beautiful “for a Senator.” Padme and Anakin’s desperate dramatic love, complete with near-death love confession. All the incredibly dumb insults or in-universe phrases – “a wild bantha chase”? “Scruffy-looking nerfherder”? OH MY GOD THIS SERIES IS SO DORKY. It’s wonderful. 

Why not Seeker!Obi-Wan?

  • Because I’m a sucker for Qui-Gon Lives! AUs, this is gonna be one.
    • After the whole thing in front of the council and then Qui-Gon taking Anakin and pushing through Obi-Wan’s knighting, there’s tension between Obi-wan and Qui-Gon.
    • But Obi-Wan makes sure to keep contact with Anakin, both to make sure the kid’s doing well under Qui-Gon and to get updates on Qui-Gon through Anakin since he still cares no matter how hurt he is.
  • So Obi-wan’s first mission as a Knight goes exactly how one would expect it, everything falls apart at the most inopportune moment and Obi-wan finds himself running through the streets of Random Planet. Just as he’s about to be cornered, a Random Streetchild shows up and gets him out of trouble by showing him a Secret Streetchild Pathway.
    • Of course Random Streetchild is Force Sensitive (FS) so Obi-Wan takes them with him back to the Temple when things stop exploding.
  • His next mission ends up with Obi-wan staying with a family with a FS child who immediately latches onto Obi-wan and falls in love with the idea of Jedi life. So Obi-wan talks to the parents and they agree to let him take the child to the Temple.
  • On his third mission, he follows a niggling sense of Bad™ to a child that’s being abused by their guardian (maybe an aunt or uncle?)  because of their Weird Space Magic™ and so he saves the child and offers them the Jedi life.
  • Almost every mission after that includes Obi-wan stumbling onto FS children and eventually he’s asked to join the Seekers.
    • Being trained as a diplomat and warrior, he’s reluctant but agrees to a trial run.
    • He proceeds to discover and break up not one, not two, but four separate slave-rings and finds 22 FS children in the process.
      • Only one has any living family and considering they sold the child, there’s no way they’re going back.
    • The creche hasn’t had this many incoming younglings at once since Yoda was 300.
  • After that debacle, they let Obi-Wan continue as a regular knight and just ask him to just keep collecting children on the side.
  • Not all of the younglings Obi-wan finds are young enough but he uses his diplomatic skills and the precedent set by Anakin so force the Jedi into accepting the younglings anyways.
    • This gives others an opening to start pushing for a higher padawan acceptance age. “If we accept older younglings, they need longer to reach padawan level, and we can’t throw cast out move younglings out of the temple at varying ages because that would be unfair.”
  • As Obi-Wan takes more missions and finds more younglings, he starts encountering more FS slaves. This pushes him to learn how to deactivate slave chips so he can get the children out of their situations
    • and if he also deactivates the chips of the child’s parents/guardians/friends well that’s no one’s business.
    • he also makes it a point to find and free Shmi after having his eyes opened to just how bad slavery can be.
  • Unfortunately, there are literally hundreds of different slave chips that all require a specific order/process to deactivate them safely. Obi-Wan got incredibly lucky to run into the easier ones the first few times.
  • He starts compiling a list of chips and making instruction sets for them.
  • And then he thinks of how Anakin would love to learn (and become his secret accomplice in freeing slaves on the sly) so he starts buying/stealing chips to teach and practice on back at the temple. It takes a while, but eventually he’s in the temple at the same time as Anakin.
    • This leads to and awkward meeting with Qui-Gon when Obi-Wan shows up at their rooms unexpectedly. And that leads into Obi-Wan teaching him along with Anakin. And Mace, who Qui-Gon had invited for tea gets involved.
    • Then Anakin almost blows up one of the chips because Obi-Wan totally forgot to take out the explosives so they move everything into a less flammable, empty classroom. On the way, Obi-wan goes to get the rest of chips (he has like 50 different types with multiples of each) since Anakin flew through the three he brought and maybe they all can work on figuring out more of them?
    • On the way he talks to Plo Koon and Kit Fisto and they ask to join. And when Obi-Wan gets to the classroom, Adi Gallia has joined the group.
    • Somehow it snowballs into this large teaching session with the entire council eventually showing up and then other masters/knights/padawans. (they take over a second classroom and have Mace supervise)
    • and everyone starts working with the instruction sets Obi-Wan’s made and then moving into the other chips and working together to create new instructions.( It’s a great intellectual challenge and it’s a great start at reminding the Jedi that they fight for all people, not just the Republic. And if they use the skills to free slaves on their missions? Well, they can just join the club.)
    • Eventually night falls and the classrooms empty until it’s just Obi-Wan and Yoda working through the new instructions sets and disarming as many chips as possible. Yoda asks Obi-Wan to make it into an official class/seminar for everyone to take. Obi-Wan agrees.
  • About three days after the deactivating class starts up, Obi-Wan notices a Healer blowing they’re way through the chip instructions and has an Idea. He asks the healer to teach others how to scan for the chips and where a chip is likely to be placed.
    • To teach, they ask for volunteers from the initiates for the masters/knights/padawans to practice scanning on.
    • Most of the initial volunteers are younglings Obi-wan found.
    • Almost every initiate finds a master or potential master during these lessons. There’s even a senior padawan that immediately clicks with an initiate that’s going to be aging out soon. This gives more reason for the council to up the age for padawan acceptance.
    • The head healer (Vokara Che? or something?) soon makes learning the instruction sets a requirement for healers.
  • Eventually, Obi-Wan has taught enough of the other knights/masters that he can start going on missions again.
  • At this point it’s been a few years since he was knighted and he’s ready for a padawan. But none of the younglings he’s found has that specific padawan-master connection.
  • Then on a negotiation mission, he arrives just as things have taken a turn for the worse. Obi-Wan manages to get the rival groups to agree to a ceasefire before leaving to help rescue efforts in one of the cities that was obliterated.
    • As he’s digging through the rubble, he hears a voice calling out through the Force. He’s is already preparing to find yet another FS youngling for the temple when he feels that special connection.
    • He finds a house that’s been flattened and hurries to lift the rubble and finds a small wookie curled up in a corner of the surviving basement. This is the voice he was hearing.
      • it’s weird to see a wookie this young off Kashyyyk since they need to pass their rites of adulthood or be allowed off planet.
      • (excepting FS younglings given to the temple. Though even the younglings are usually kept close to the temple before they go back to Kashyyk to take their rites. This is also when they’re allowed to be taken as padawans.)
    • The wookie youngling immediately latches onto Obi-Wan’s leg and refuses to let go. He also won’t speak. So Obi-Wan just reinforces his leg with the Force and continues his work.
    • By the second day, Obi-Wan manages to get the youngling to speak through their burgeoning force conection and discovers that the youngling is mute. He also doesn’t know who is family is since he was taken in and raised by an older twi’lek couple for as long as he can remember. They died in the fighting.
  • Obi-Wan eventually finishes his mission. Instead of taking the youngling back to the temple, he contacts his old creche master, who’s a wookie, and asks her if she knows of any clans with a faded fur clan marking or if she’s heard from her clan about any missing children.
  • She hasn’t on either but she gives him the comm number of her clan leader. Obi-Wan calls and agrees to bring the child to Kashyyyk so they can hopefully identify his clan.
  • They reach Kashyyyk and meet the clan leader. She immediately recognizes the younglings fur markings (Black limbs fading into light brown fur over the rest of the body) as a clan that left the planet after a major disagreement with their neighbors about 800 years ago. They’d lost contact with them almost immediately and have no way to contact them now.
    • The clan adopts the child and asks that he stay on Kashyyyk for the next year so he may learn his culture and take his rites before going to the Jedi.
    • Obi-Wan agrees and asks that he can visit the youngling since he plans on taking him as his padawan as soon as the youngling is eligible. 
      • Obi-Wan plans to use the visits to start his force teachings and occasionally bring other initiates/younglings to give him a connection to the temple and introduce others to wookie culture.
      • The clan is all for it and other clans start contacting Obi-Wan asking that he brings children to visit their clans so that the cultural experience is widely shared on both sides.
  • When he finally reports in, the council just shakes their collective heads and lets Obi-Wan do what he wants.
    • Many of them have accepted padawans from the younglings Obi-wan has found even though most of the councilors weren’t planning on taking padawans any time soon.
    • By taking initiates to a culture incredibly different, it will help prepare them for culture shock once they are accepted as padawans/go to one of the corps.
personal experience with bpd

it lies mostly in the constant underlying guilt i have for purely being alive, being born, taking up space, making me feel undeserving of anything including basic things like people’s time, money, love, and anything or anyone healthy or positive. Including the belief that i deserve pain, hurt, to be abused physically and emotionally, etc. because of this i have a subconscious desire to self destruct, which isn’t only self harm but also purposely ruining friendships and relationships, shoplifting, doing hard drugs, risky sex, etcetc. My thought process always resorts back to suicide. For example: i fucked up the thing. i fuck up everything. everyone hates me because i cant stop fucking up. no one will ever love me. im a horrible human. i need to get high/get drunk/cut/lash out at a loved one/kill myself.
i have an extremely hard time maintaining any friendships due mainly to the fact that after being called clingy and annoying for so long i’ve become incredibly distant in order to not seem clingy even tho i so desperately wanna be!! if that makes sense. Like ill want so badly to message someone 500 times but instead ill ignore their text because “they probably wont respond anyway”. I also fall in love incredibly fast and can also lose feelings just as fast.
Black and white thinking is the only way i think. Example: in 2nd grade i stopped drawing because my friends picture was better. in elementary school and 5+6 grade i was in all the gifted and talented programs and got straight A’s, in 7th grade i was put in a lower math class and decided to completely give up on school and from then on my grades were shit. if i cannot be the best then i will be the worst. in every sense.
My moods are rapid and fast but that doesn’t mean they aren’t intense. compare it to someone dumping a bucket of water on your head randomly. no its not raining but wtf man?! Mood swings are typically triggered by feeling abandoned/rejected or guilty.
It also feels like there are two people in my brain, one desperately trying to smash everything with a hammer and another trying to glue everything back together. Most times the hammer smasher is much bigger and faster and stronger than the glue dude. Example: acting as glue dude and making a long list of coping skills and framing it. triggered, and im hammer smasher and burn the list. back to glue dude i sit over the ashes and cry.

Cage Cleaning Step-by-Step

Ok sorry I got distracted cleaning the rest of the apartment, but here are the pictures of how I clean my double unit Critter Nation. I do this once a week just in case anyone is wondering. It usually takes me about 40 minutes.

1. Get your supplies! I use a trash bag, Lysol Wipes, Odoban Spray Cleaner, a towel, and the green bucket from their cage (I use this to soak the binder clips). I fill the bucket up with a little bit of Odoban and warm water.

2. Take out all the hammocks and shake them into the trash bag to remove any poop, nesting material, fleece scraps, etc. Set them aside to be washed with the cage liners. Throw out anything that is smelly and gross including boxes, wood chews, chewable tunnels, etc.

3. Then, remove all the other cage accessories. I have litterpans, a space pod, a chinchilla dust house, granite slabs, food bowls, treat cages, and random other things like jingle balls and wood chews. I leave the rope toys, water bottles, and perches. Dump all the litterpans and shake everything out if needed.

4. Put all of this in a bathtub with a small amount of cleaner- Odoban, Nature’s Miracle, Bleach, Vinegar, etc. Fill the rest of the tub with warm water. You can use any cleaner as long as you remember to rinse afterwards

5. While this is all soaking, go back to the cage and start on the liners. Take all the binder clips off and put them in the bucket with your cleaner/warm water. Fold the liner into the center so none of the poop or other mess comes out and then hold it in a trash bag and shake it out. Set aside with the hammocks to be washed.

6. Dump any remaining poop or mess on the pans into the trash can. Wipe them down with your cleaner and some paper towels or Lysol wipes. Then go rinse them in the bathtub with water to get the cleaner off. Pat them dry and bring them back to the cage. 

7. Remove the binder clips from the bucket and pat them dry with the towel. Lay fresh liners over the trays and secure them with the clean binder clips. Repeat this with all the trays and put them back in as you go. 

8. Drain the bathtub and rinse everything that was soaking thoroughly. Pat it dry with the towel and bring it back to the cage and set it all up. For me, this includes putting new litter in the pans and food in the bowls. I also dump the bucket where I was soaking the clips, rinse and dry it, and put it back in the cage. 

9. Put clean hammocks in! I have enough hammocks that I have two sets and don’t have to wait for them to wash and dry before I can put them back in. If you don’t have as many, the ratties will just have to wait until the wash is done!

10. Throw the hammocks and liners in the wash- I wash with detergent and Odoban on hot water. Sometimes I wash again with just detergent if they are still smelly. Once they’re done in the washer and dryer, fold and store until next week!

Every other week, I also vaccum around the cage since they like to kick stuff out. Once a month, I wipe down all the bars and cracks and crevices of the cage. 

I hope this was helpful. Everyone has their own routine and their own cage set-up, but this is what works best for me.
