I did manage to fix the foundation (did what @baufive suggested and saved the color preset. Had to click ALL of the pylons till one took) but it doesn’t stick. The next time I save and reload the game it’s right back to the original. I’ll just live with it for now.
In the meantime, don’t y’all want some dead fish carcasses from my refrigerator? lol Had to work with what I have for fishing cc (side eyeing you Sandy @aroundthesims. Just kidding) If I add anymore to the lot it will be too much. It’s set for provisions to be sold when the time comes.
You grab the
foam roller before re-entering the training room. Handing Steve the roller, you
look around the room as a few more players are filing in, needing different things before they start to suit up and warm up for the game tonight. “You can go over there,”
You tell him, pointing to the side of the room where he’ll be out of the way,
so he can roll out his tight muscles.
He takes the
foam roller from you, and says, “Thanks, y/n,” Before turning and heading over
to the spot you told him to.
Now that he’s
taken care of, you turn your attention to James who you noticed just walked in. “How’s your
ankle?” You ask him, while motioning for him to take a seat on the table.
“Still sore,” He
responds truthfully, while sitting down and lifting his foot up a bit so you
can take a look. It still looks bruised.
“Have you been
icing it?” You ask, and he nods. After moving it a bit, and taking into account
his pain levels, you say, “It isn’t ideal, but I can wrap it, and you’ll be
able to play tonight.”
you’re the best.” He tells you.
be right back,” You tell him then you walk to the cabinet to grab the pre-wrap
and tape. While you’re digging through the cabinet, wondering what happened to
all the pre-wrap, you feel someone come up behind you. A hand lands on your
shoulder, and he presses a kiss to the back of your head before continuing on
his way. When you turn around, Shawn is already halfway across the room,
greeting Steve with a handshake. You just smile and shake your head at the fact
that even after all this time, he still manages to make your heart speed up when he enters the room. Returning
your attention to the cabinet, you finally locate the pre-wrap, and go back to
James to wrap his ankle.

Pairings: Tom Hiddleston x reader
Wednesday came faster than you
thought. You had tried to forget about your little encounter with the
mysterious man on Monday night. Immersing yourself in your studies and actively
participating in class, you had achieved your goal. This man, Tom, had vanished
from your mind, even despite the way he’d made your insides feel. It was only
when you had walked through the doors of Hiddleston et al. that your mind was
flooded with the memories. You had managed, for a whole day and a half, to
store Tom at the back of your mind. And now, walking down to the old files
room, you were surprised to find your hands were slightly trembling as they
gripped your shoulder bag.
You remembered suddenly the request he had made last
Monday. Wear a skirt Wednesday.
As you took your homework out of your bag, you looked
down at yourself; blue jeans and a red sweater. Biting your lip, you wondered
if he’d even come back down here.
The night started out very quiet. You were intensely
drawn to your textbooks, your pen scribbling notes onto your notebook. Two
hours had managed to fly by without anyone coming to disturb your studies,
which you were always grateful for.
into the dance practice studio and immediately collapsed on the couch. The
meeting with you this morning left him exhausted. Jackson and JB were
stretching on the floor and made eye contact with one another.
“Mark, are you okay?” Jackson inquired, taking note of Mark’s red eyes.
all Mark said, replaying the conversation you had with him this morning.
young members walked into the studio, laughing and holding the snacks that they
picked up from the convenience store. Jinyoung
entered the room, pushing past them. “Mark!” he shouted. He walked straight
over to him and flung his fist, punching Mark in the face.
JB leaped up to their feet, “What’s going on,” JB asked placing his hands on
his lip where Jinyoung punched, his lip cut and slight blood oozing out. He
remained silent as he stood up to his feet.
Y/N” Jinyoung shouted.
Bambam said, his mouth gaping open.
mine first. You don’t know what it felt like when she disappeared! You don’t
know how much she meant to me” Mark raised his voice, stepping towards

dialect came out a bit.
change” Mark threatened. “I love her, I’m sorry but I do. I can’t sit back and
watch anymore. Her leaving was because she loved me. She sacrificed us because
she wasn’t willing to let me give up everything for her.”
have to explain that to Jinyoung. He knew the kind of person you are. It hurt
him that you loved someone that much and it happened to be one of his best
friends. He didn’t know where your heart lied. When he asked if you still loved
Mark you never gave him an answer. Now Mark was here confessing his love for
you in his face.
You sat in
the living room. Your mind and heart filled with thoughts of Mark and Jinyoung.
With Jinyoung it was simple. He was always there for you, as a friend and as a
boyfriend. Your love was warm. Like a safety blanket you felt secure with him.
You remembered all the awkward dances in the bed room and the way you would
tell bad jokes but he’d kiss you on the forehead anyways, his eyes crinkling as
he would shake his head at you. Your relationship with Mark was like a
rollercoaster ride. All the ups and down but you enjoyed every
moment of it, the thrill of being with him. The love that was passionate and
sweet and you both would sacrifice anything for the love you two
It came like a tidal wave over
you, you knew who it was that you wanted to be with. Jumping up from the couch
you grabbed jacket and headed towards the door. You needed to tell him that you
loved him. ~
and Mark stood facing each other, two friends fighting over the same girl who
they both loved dearly.
me Mark, she could have come back to you but she didn’t.”
“Y/N may be
with you and she may love you, but are you one hundred percent certain that she
doesn’t love me too?” Mark raised his eyebrow.
in the air was thick as the other members watched. Jinyoung couldn’t give an
answer, because he didn’t know where your feelings for Mark lied. The door opened and everyone turned around. You
walked into the practice room, it was silent. The first thing you noticed was
Jinyoung and Mark facing each other. The next thing you saw was Mark’s cut lip.
straight to Mark, cupping his face with you hands. “Oh my god, Mark are you
okay?” You looked at Jinyoung, his knuckles shadowed with bruising. You never wanted to come between their
friendship and that’s why you never told Jinyoung about Mark.
back to face Mark, “Come on, let’s get you cleaned up” You grabbed his hand and
lead him out of the room.
heart sank as he watched you reach for Mark’s hand and walk out. You didn’t
even say anything to him. He tilted his head back and looked up at the ceiling,
The heart ache sinking in.
Jackson reached out to him placing a hand on his shoulder.
couldn’t say anything, he brushed Jackson’s hand off his shoulder and turned to
walk out of the studio.
You sat Mark
down on the couch upstairs, walking over to the kitchenette you looked under
the sink and pulled out the first aid kit. Mark watched you, a breath of hope
in his lungs that you made your choice and that your choice was him. You sat
beside him on the couch, pouring antiseptic on a cotton swab.
hurt” you said as you started dabbing at his lip. Mark hissed at the stinging
sensation, flinching away a little. “Don’t be a baby, it probably doesn’t hurt
as much as when you actually got punched.” You leaned in closer, gently blotting
his lip. Mark smiled, loving how close you were to him. The smell of your
perfume just inches away, he could feel your breath on his lips. He reached up
and grabbed your wrist, looking into your eyes.

space between the two of you.
sorry for leaving you all those years” A tear rolled down your cheek.
grasping your cheek, his thumb wiping the tear away. “You’re here now.”
your hand up and held his hand then let go, “I didn’t come for you.”
slipped from your cheek, “You’re choosing him.”
“The way I loved you I will never love anyone like that again. I was scared for
us and our future. But with Jinyoung I’m sure, I love him and I know I can’t
ever leave his side. No matter what life throws at us.”
smiled, “he’s lucky.” He couldn’t say anything else, there was nothing more he
could do. His questions were all answered and your choice was made. He stood up
from the couch, leaning down he kissed the top of your head. “I’ll see you around
Y/N, I wish you and Jinyoung the best.” He walked away, not turning back to
look at you. It was time to move on and let go.
You let out
a sigh of relief, standing you went back to the studio.
guys know about Mark and Y/N? Or am I the only one that was caught off guard” Yugeom was sprawled on the floor.

were rooming together” Youngjae said while playing on his phone.
“Poor Jinyoung” Bambam sighed.
into the room, your eyes scanning for Jinyoung. “Where’s Jinyoung?”
“He left as
soon as you left with Mark” JB spoke.
realized that Jinyoung must have misinterpreted your actions. “I have to go” you
said as you left the room.
you going?” JB called out after you.
Jinyoung I love him!” you said as you ran out.
Jackson said in a high pitched voice. JB
shook his head and hit Jackson in the shoulder.
into your house panting because you just ran from the studio. “Jinyoung!” you
called out in hopes that he was home. You ran upstairs to your bedroom, “Jinyoung”
you called out again but the room was empty, the closet door was open and the luggage
that you stored in there was gone. You feared that he left, pulling out your cell phone you dialed his number. It went straight to voicemail.
Jinyoung entered the bedroom.
you ran straight into his arms. Wrapping your arms around his waist, your head
pressed against his chest, His arms encompassed
you as he rested his chin on your head.

sighed then let you go in frustration running his hands through his hair, “That’s
not the answer I want Y/N”
“It’s the answer I’m always going to give you because it’s the only thing that
matters to me. I love you.” You moved closer and touched his cheek. “Park
Jinyoung, you are the only one I love. No one else just you.”
at you, his face softening. He leaned down and kissed you. His lips soft and
subtle against yours. Pulling away he tucked your hair behind your ear, smiling
at you as he planted a kiss on your forehead. You reached for his hand and he
winced. Looking at it you noticed the bruising that had formed around his

into the bathroom pulling things out of the medicine cabinet, “I wonder if we

at your corny and terrible joke.

These photos of my kitchen were taken a few years ago but not much has changed. There used to be some really obtrusive cabinets that I ripped out and I also took the doors off the other cabinets. It is so wonderful to have open cabinets! You can see everything! My kitchen is only 100 square feet so I had to maximize the space. The punched tin star thing on the wall is a spice cabinet. I have that, a rack below that and a whole drawer filled with spices.
Cabinets of Curiosities, 1666, oil on canvas by Georg Hainz, German, 1639-1688. Hainz was the founder of still life painting in Hamburg and his style was in the Dutch tradition of the 17th century. Kunsthalle, Hamburg, Germany.
At the time, it was fashionable to collect natural and artificial items and display them on shelves called “art cabinets.” This one is a type of vanitas still life. These were also known as Wunderkammer or Cabinets of Wonder with their artifacts of natural history, geology, archaeology, history and religion.
The first in an open-ended series of prints
based on a late night rumination about a dream I had. The dream was
populated by people I didn’t recognize but seemed familiar. I was
reminded that the human mind stores everything we see - every leaf on a
tree, every face we see. We may never consciously access these memories
again, but they are there, tucked away in our mental file cabinet. I
wonder if the people populating my dreams are a mashup of the various
features of all the people I’ve encountered in my life? I decided to interpret my vague visual impressions of these dream people.
Sage-Sage is the staple of any witch stockpile. Most notable for its cleansing abilities, a bundle of dried sage produces a smell that is abhorrent to most spirits or nasty little critters that like to dwell about. Burn a little, and it will drive them out of your area. For these reasons, sage is used to cleanse and purify sacred spaces before a ritual. Sage is also believed to increase wisdom and gain guidance from a spirit. Lavender-A wonderful herb for healing, it can be used in teas for ridding oneself of headaches. Magically speaking, it is excellent for helping to calm anxiety and stressful situations. It has often been used for aiding sleep and helping to promote prophetic dreaming.

Peppermint-Perfect for settling an upset stomach, mint in most forms is a great addition to the stores. It is a good herb for protection and for gaining or attracting wealth to you.

Horehound-Excellent for a sore throat, horehound is said to be especially useful in warding against being ensorcelled.

Ginger-Being a spicy herb, ginger is known for adding a punch to spells and enchantments, especially those involving sexual magic. This can mean either strengthening the spell, quickening it to fruition, or just making sure it has the desired effect. Clove-Nobody likes malicious gossip, least of all a witch. Cloves are useful for the sake of preventing drama and diverting people from enveloping you in their lies or slander. It is especially good at protecting children from harmful teasing or bullying and can be helpful in bringing your friends closer to you. Olive-Don’t underestimate these little things. They’ve been used in a wide variety of magic and are just as potent today as they were thousands of years ago.

Jungkook carried his luggage to the back of the van, clapping their driver on the shoulder who decided to help him out. He muttered a thank you as he passed it to him before moving towards the side of the vehicle and fishing his phone from his pockets.
There were several notifications, mostly emails from the dance academy he’d be working for in New York; texts from people he once had a fling with (they really couldn’t seem to let go for some reason), and several tweets from his so-called fans who follows his dance covers on YouTube.
Jungkook was used to seeing his phone blow up so much even on Sunday’s. But all these notifications seem too dull in comparison to the single text sent to him last night.
Have a safe flight, Jungkook. :) Keep in touch.
Jungkook tried not to read too much into the message, repeating to himself (so much that he started to sound like a broken record) that when Taehyung said “keep in touch”, he wan’t asking to start over and get back together with him.
He was asking to start over… As friends.
And Jungkook never thought anything could be more painful (or pitiful) than the time Taehyung broke up with him.
“Hey yo Kookie!” Jimin busted out making Jungkook jump; his thumb fumbling for the home button before Jimin gets a glimpse of the text.
“I told you not to sneak up on me.” Jungkook glared and Jimin only shrugged with a smile, his eyes turning into slits.
“Do I look like the type to listen to you?”
Jungkook scoffed before leaning back on the car with his hands deep in his jean’s pockets.
“You seem quiet.” Jimin nudged his shoulder.
“And you seem annoying more than usual.” Jungkook parried causing Jimin to roll his eyes amusedly.
“So how’d it go with your boyfriend?” Jimin opened up with a suggestive wiggle of his eyebrows and Jungkook winced.
“He’s not my boyfriend, Jimin.”
“Fine, ex boyfriend.” Jungkook winced even more. Jimin sensed the seriousness emanating from the boy and decided to stop joking around.
“Didn’t get him back?” He asked cautiously and Jungkook glanced at him with a shake of his head.
“The great Jeon Jungkook…” Jimin looked at him incredulously. “Has been… Rejected?! Denied?! Refused?! Shunned–”
“Oh wow, I heard you the first time.” Jungkook snapped with a sneer. “I didn’t need a list.”
“Sorry.” Jimin said, his shoulders slumping. “Was just trying to cheer you up.”
“You have a weird way of showing your concern, hyung.”
“Well I’m one of a kind.” Jimin boasted as he crossed his arms and leant beside him, nudging his shoulder. “Come on Jungkook, cheer up! Moping doesn’t suit you. Glaring does.”
Jungkook snorted and shook his head, “I’m not moping. I’m fine.”
“Of course you are.” Jimin clucked his tongue before facing him and shaking his shoulders slightly. “You know what will make you feel better?” Jungkook didn’t answer. “We should go out once we get back. New York has a lot of great spots with a lot chics to match.” He winked.
“Sounds fun.” Jungkook muttered but his mind was still elsewhere as he stood straighter and moved towards the front of the van.
“Or maybe… we should start dating.”
Jungkook snapped up at Jimin’s suggestion and saw him wiggling his eyebrows playfully. He huffed and opened the van, waving his hand in a flourish. “Get in before I snap your neck.”
“Aww~ I knew you secretly liked me too, Kookie.” Jimin pinched his cheek as he hopped into the van, earning a sneer from the boy. Jimin chuckled telling him that the sneering and glaring definitely suited him better.
“I’m serious, though,” Jimin said as Jungkook hopped in and sat beside him. “We should start dating.”
“Shut up, hyung.” Jungkook spat but a smile was already tugging at corners of his mouth as he closed the door.
