Hey tumblr so I need your help! My school always had one of those “Read Across America” maps with young adult novels or romances or whatever (evidently, I’m American) but I’ve never seen anything comparable for wlw. I’ve tried to rely on my memory and on other people’s recs but I’m only (exactly) halfway through. Any suggestions to fill in these missing states? I’ve tried to avoid stories that take place across multiple locations. Or offer more options for the ones I already have, the more the merrier.

anonymous asked:

f/f books set in high school?

Style by Chelsea Cameron, Tell Me Again How a Crush Should Feel by Sara Farizan, Sister Mischief by Laura Goode, Without Annette by Jane B. Mason, The Difference Between You and Me by Madeleine George, Dating Sarah Cooper by Siera Maley, Keeping You a Secret by Julie Anne Peters, Empress of the World, by Sara Ryan, and Dirty London by Kelley York, to start.

darriness  asked:

What do you think the Flash characters' favourite candy are? What snacks do they get when they go to the movies?

Barry: the guy who eats like, six tubs of popcorn, so he always brings the entire team because “we have to at least make it look like we’re NormalTM” and Julian fights him the entire time over it.  He also has a thing for Whoppers, which is fine because they’re the one candy Cisco won’t fight him for.

Cisco: depends on the movie.  If he knows that the movie is going to make him cry, then he goes with something like Sour Patch; if it’s straight-up action he’s a Crunch guy; rom-com is Jolly Ranchers; and the midnight premiere snack of choice is Swedish fish.  He does not share.  (He does, he just doesn’t know it.)  He threatens to put itching powder in the suit if Barry eats all the popcorn before he gets some.

Caitlin: Hot Tamales, actually, because she knows Barry won’t steal them in bulk and she likes that they’re less sweet and more sharp.  She’s a take-two-handfuls-of-popcorn-and-she’s-done kind of gal.

Iris: Sno-Caps and whatever Cisco’s having.  She’s also the one who takes a tub of popcorn out of Barry’s hands and he just lets her have it, even though he’s been silently and energetically fighting Julian for the past hour over the rest.

Julian: he’s an M&Ms guy and a spirited combatant in the Epic Popcorn Fights of 2017, which usually digress into Julian in Barry’s lap because Cisco threatened to Vibe both of them into another universe if they didn’t shh, even though they’re not making any sound, and it’s the only way they can eat popcorn without re-initiating an arm wrestling match.  (It has absolutely nothing to do with the horror movie, Thank You Very Much Allen.)

Cindy: Starbursts!  She’s not much of a popcorn fan, but she’ll make exceptions.

HR: kumquats that he snuck in by the dozen.

Wally: Skittles.  Straight-up Skittles.  Steal at your own peril.  He also sits directly behind Barry and steals popcorn whenever Iris nudges Barry so he looks over.  Brother-sister mischief makers, at your service.

Jesse: Wally’s Skittles.  She’s willing to risk her own peril because it’s more fun than just buying a bag.  Big popcorn gal.  Shamelessly leans over Barry to steal a handful.  He’s gotta catch her if he wants to retaliate and they call her Jesse Quick for a reason.

Joe: Kit Kats, and if you want to keep that hand, You Will Not Touch.  He also bought his own tub of popcorn to share with Cecile.  (Who is also an M&M fan and enjoys stealing the rest of Julian’s bag because he forgot it while fighting Barry.)

“You know, I am not going to enjoy this party,” you said, looking your father in the eye. You knew that you would never get it of attending, but it was worth a try.

“You rarely ever enjoy such things, Y/N. I’m well aware.”

“Does that mean-”

“No,” he said quickly, knowing what your next question would be. “It does not mean that you can get out of this.”

“Father, I have never enjoyed such things, it’s always been a bother,” you pointed out. “Your political stance makes me the point of unwanted suitors, and it’s always-”

“Enough of this,” he snapped. “You are going to this party, and that is that, Y/N.”


“Don’t,” he said. “I have to go, there’s a cabinet meeting within the hour.” He kissed your cheek, and left through the front door. You loved through father, but his job always put you in uncomfortable positions. He did not get along with Hamilton, and was always siding with Jefferson and Madison, which increased the tense atmosphere you were all too aware of. His disagreements with Hamilton always put you in an awkward position; Alexander was the only member of the cabinet that you could tolerate, and even hold a civil discussion with.

Elizabeth Schuyler, or Eiza, as she preferred, was the only saving grace. She was brilliant and witty, as well as exuberantly kind. Hopefully, she would be there to save you from this party.

“Y/N, please play nice with Thomas tonight,” you father said, as you approached Washington’s house, where the party was to be held. “I know you’ve never quite gotten along, but if you were to become closer-”

“I will try, father.” You didn’t need to hear your fathers many reasons as to why he would prefer you to get along with Jefferson. “I’m sure underneath all the hatred and bad qualities, there’s something redeeming.”


“I’m joking,” you said with a laugh, though truthfully, you were completely serious. “I’m sure he’s lovely.” That seemed to please your father, and he muttered something before walking you into the party.

“I’m going to speak with Mr Washington,” your father said. “Behave yourself.”

“Of course.” He walked away, and you turned, immediately spotting Alexander in conversation with a member of the cabinet that you didn’t know the name of. You looked more, and spotted Eliza with her sisters, immersed in conversations with the other two girls.

Angelica spotted you, waving you over. You gladly joined them, and joked the whole night, your mind for once being pulled away from the thoughts of politics and the insufferable people your father sided with. Soon enough, Angelica and Peggy had excused themselves from the conversation, leaving you and Eliza alone.

“Care to take a walk?” She suggested, tilting her head to the side. You nodded, and Eliza lead you outside.

“I practically grew up out here, playing with my sisters, causing mischief,” she reminisced, looking at the gardens and smiling.

“I spent time here, as well. That’s how I met you lot,” you added in, and laughed with her.

“Let me braid your hair,” Eliza suddenly suggested, and you nodded. You sat down on a bench, letting Eliza sit behind you and weave your hair into a braid. She picked some of the purple flowers growing by the bench, entwining them in your long hair.

“You’re done!” She exclaimed, and you reached back to feel the braid. Your hand collided with Eliza’s, and you turned around.

The setting sun framed her profile with golden and pink light, catching in her hair, making it look as though someone had found a way to freeze sunlight.

“Y/N, you’re staring.”

“So are you.” She had been staring, and only in this moment did you notice the close proximity between you two. You were close enough to Eliza to count the freckles scattered on her nose and cheekbones.

“Just kiss me already,” she whispered, and you did, closing the space between you with a simple movement. You let your hands tangle into her silly hair, as hers tightened around your waist. Here you were, in the dark, properly kissing Eliza Schuyler outside of George Washington’s house.

Eliza broke away, exhaling excitedly. “That was nice,” she commented, pressing her forehead against yours.

“It was,” you agreed. “We can’t tell my father.”

“I know,” she whispered. “But maybe you can kiss me again, one last time?”


“Father, I’m home!” You announced. Since the party two weeks ago, you had been visiting the Schuyler estate nearly everyday, and Eliza had been sending you letters– love letters, to be exact.

“Father?” He hadn’t responded, and you mounted the stairs, climbing them cautiously. You pushed open the door to his study, and found it empty. With an escalating worry, you rushed to the door of your bedroom. It was unlikely that he was in there when you had vacated it, but it was the nearest door. You opened the door, finding him sitting at your desk, sorting through some papers.

Instantly, you stiffened. Those papers were the letters from Eliza. Oh no.

“Y/N…” he began, standing up and grabbing a two of the papers in his hands. “What are these?”

“They’re letters. Personal letters.”

“I realize that– but these are written as though by a lover,” he spat. “But they are from Elizabeth Schuyler.”


“No, do not try to make up excuses,” he snapped. “You cannot be married to a woman.”


“Do you understand?”

“No, I-”

“Do. You. Understand?” He didn’t even make an attempt to disguise his contempt.

“Eliza is the ever-favourite object of my heart, and I-”

“Enough!” He shouted. “I forbid you from ever seeing her again!” In a singular movement, he ripped the letters in his hand in two, and you let out a shout of protest. You made for the letters still on the desk, but your father was bigger and faster. He seized the remaining letters, ripping them in half, and tossing them into the fire in the hearth.

“No!” You fell to your knees, but you stopped yourself from reaching into the flames. Instead, you watched them as they devoured the papers with Eliza’s words, as if you were hypnotized.

“This is ridiculous, Y/N,” you father said. “Get up.” You felt one of his hands wrap around your arm, and he pulled you to your feet.

“I never want to see or hear of you spending time with Elizabeth Schuyler, ever again,” he said, releasing your arm. “Understand?”

You nodded, almost automatically. You had been pulled out of your mind, and barely registered your father leaving and closing the door.

You spent the following week locked away in your room, staring at the ceiling. You let in only one person, your nursemaid, Tessa. Tessa had been the only one you had trusted to tell of the letters, and you know in your heart of hearts that she had not told your father.

“Y/N, my dear, you must get up,” you heard Tessa say, but processed none of her words. “Your father has asked me to make it known that you are required to make an appearance at a party hosted by George Washington tonight, dear.” You groaned, passing a hand over your face. As much as you wished to remain in bed, you knew that the only way to possibly gain back your father’s trust was through doing what he asked of you.

You dressed in the gown Tessa had chosen for you, and begrudgingly agreed to accompany your father to the party. You had conversations sparingly, and spent most of your time searching in vain for Eliza. Finally, your father approached you again. “Y/N, I’d like you to talk with Mr Jefferson,” he said, pulling you in the direction of the man.

“Y/N, what a pleasure it is.” He took your hand, kissing you knuckles.

“Indeed,” you said stiffly, pulling your hand from his grasp at the first opportunity. You still had a small hope that Eliza would show up, but as you looked around the room, the hope thinned.

“I would hope that you two shall be able to get along, especially considering your situation,” your father interjected, a slight blush staining his cheeks.

“Our… situation?” You hesitantly asked, gripping your skirt in your hands.

“Ah, I had forgot to make notice of it beforehand,” you father admitted, clasping his hands together. “Mr Jefferson and I have worked out an arrangement.”

“What kind of arrangement would that be?” You asked, a fear blossoming in your chest that nearly overtook the hope.

“I have arranged for you to marry Mr Jefferson, in wake of everything that had happened recently.” You felt as though you could pass out, and his words hit you like punches. The hope in your chest fizzled out, and you took a deep breath, saying nothing for fear of opening your mouth and screaming.

For you and Eliza, the beginning of the end came too quickly.

The Party

This is my first ever Mass Effect fan fiction, so please try to not be too hard on me, haha :)

Things to keep in mind:
•This takes place after the Destroy ending, but in this version the non-reaper synthetics survived.
•Shepard survived the Destroy ending, she was picked up by the Normandy and healed at Huerta Memorial.
•Thane is still alive, his story follows the PC Thane Mod’s story where his Kepral’s syndrome was treated and he received a lung transplant. However, Shepard has not seen or been contacted by Thane since the transplant & since Earth.
•The party that takes place in the Citadel DLC is happening now, post-Earth instead of before it.
•This story contains a tiny bit of cursing.


She glanced up. She had been standing silently, arms crossed, leaned up against the wall near her desk. Her gaze never left her private terminal, pleading internally that she would see that green light blinking.

“You’re missing the party, Shepard. Come out and join us.” Garrus said.

This party had not been Shepard’s idea, but for some reason several of her friends absolutely insisted on it. Shepard reasoned it must be to get her to socialize after everything she had been through.

The primary aim of this list is to bring together a group of books with no sex in them for younger teenagers or asexual teenagers who don’t want to read about sex. I’ve marked books which I know have skin colour/racial diversity with a ** if I’ve missed that in one of these books let me know. These books are recommended for an age range of 13-17 and if the title is in italics it’s more for ages 16/17 with older themes but should still be sex free. This is part 1 of a series.

Of course, things don’t always go according to plan, and every heist comes with its fair share of hijinks.

One Man Guy by Michael Barakiva **

Tell Me Again How a Crush Should Feel by Sara Farizan **

High-school junior Leila has made it most of the way through Armstead Academy without having a crush on anyone, which is something of a relief.

the adventures of the master cookie thief and his apprentice

Look, we’re all on tenterhooks wondering what will happen with @determamfidd and Sansukh, but it’s fairly safe to say it’s going to end with a wedding feast?

And so, Legolas and Gimli are understandably terrified at the shenanigans that will ensue at said wedding feast, considering their respective relatives but!

They did not count upon the Master Cookie Thief.

Now, really, Gimli should’ve expected shenanigans from his beloved and mischief-loving sister-son but he wasn’t prepared for this level, the kind of shenanigans that would also cause Thranduil Elven-king to have kittens. 

And cookie-crumbs on his elegant robes. 

Because, really, Thranduil Elven-king was said to be delighted with precious jewels but nobody expected that his true weakness would be discovered and exploited by one clever little dwarven badger of the line of Durin.  (Read: Chocolate and Caramel Chip cookies)

Also, Thranduil Elven-king was rendered helpless considering his own son was aiding and abetting the Master Cookie Thief of Erebor in raiding cookie jars under the mountain. 

Legolas discovered this for himself when he found cookie-crumbs in Laerophen’s hair!

And thus, Erebor, the Greenwood and Dale were suitably distracted from the “billing and cooing” of newlyweds Legolas and Gimli because they were too busy howling for justice over their depleted cookie jars!

Gimizh plans to raid the Shire next, with his faithful and loyal Elven apprentice.  He may have allies in the persons of the young Gamgee children. 

As a youngster I read a book called My Naughty Little Sister and Bad Harry, published in 1974. The narrator talks in a slightly condescending manner about the mischief her naughty litter sister and equally naughty friend (Harry) get up to. I rather imagine that Petunia read it at some point and related rather strongly to Lily and Severus as (to her mind) awful children. Take that a step further, and have her tell Lily this, at some point. Then, when Lily is thinking of boy names, she is rather taken with Harry, not directly named after her childhood friend in a way anyone would understand, but named after a sense of nostalgic longing for the innocence and love of her childhood before all the darkness and war. 

notapiece  asked:

Could you recommend some diverse YA books for me? I recently got a gift card and I'd like to add some more diversity to my library so I can actively recommend things to my students.

Sure! Right now I’ve mostly been reading diverse in terms of lgbt+ characters so I’ll give you one for each of those letters. I recommend using goodreads for more information on each book. 

L- Blue is the Warmest Color by Julie Maroh. You could argue she’s bi but it mainly focuses on the female relationship, so up to you. Its a French graphic novel and really beautifully illustrated. It also has a film available on Netflix!

The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth- realistic fiction, dealing with conservative family members.

Silhouette of a Sparrow by Molly Griffin- historical fiction (1926), coming of age story. We tend to forget that there were lesbians back then.

Sister Mischief by Laura Goode- Basically a jewish lesbian hip-hop artist at a super Christian high school. 

G- Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Leviathan - about two very different boys with the same name. Both of these authors are amazing.. I would recommend any of their books. 

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Saenz - the cover is so pretty.. A lyrical novel, gay love story. Supposed to be very sweet.

Hero by Perry Moore - a superhero/coming out story. 

B- Love in a Time of Global Warming by Francesca Lia Block - dystopian version of the odyssey. Female protagonist.

Adaptation by Malinda Lo - Sci-fi with a female bisexual character. I don’t have any male bi characters yet.. 

T- Beautiful Music for Ugly Children by Cronn-mills - music themed ftm trans story. I have my own radio show so I really liked the premise of this one..

Luna by Peters - a teen story of a mtf trans discovering herself. 

I (Intersex)- Middlesex by Eugendies - Beautifully written autobiographical style novel of a intersex individual finding their way. One of my top books ever..

Pantomime by Laura Lam - An intersex character runs away to the circus and hopefully a place to belong and be who they are. 

Hope that gave you some ideas! I’m looking to find more poc lgbt+ characters as well as some non-binary and asexual ones. 

Imagine Loki as an uncle. Thor has two daughters: the elder daughter is quite similar to Thor in looks and strength but is kinder and wiser than Thor ever was as a child; the younger child is the spitting image of Loki, but he doesn’t believe there are any similarities beyond that. After all, these are Thor’s biological children, and Loki was adopted.

Imagine Loki babysitting them one day and catches the younger one playing tricks on her older sister. Imagine Loki listening to to her explain her plan and try to get out of trouble. Imagine Loki finally realizing that his niece is just like him in every way. Imagine Loki teaching them both how mischief is done, by enlisting their help to pull a trick on Thor when he returns.

The Loud House: Lucy Loud [INFP]


Introverted Feeling (Fi): Individuality means a lot to Lucy, who refuses to conform or bend to make anyone else happy. She’s outwardly stoic and hates to show her full emotions, it’s incredibly hard to get a genuine smile from her. Although Lucy will sometimes act drastically to hide something she’s ashamed of, she will make an effort to help someone in need, such as Lincoln, who as at risk for being punished for something she did. Lucy has a very fragile ego, and is comfortable living with a “better them than me” mentality.

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): Lucy is easily inspired and almost always brainstorming for her poetry. She usually keeps a pen and paper handy and is eager to share her poetry with her family. As steadfast as she can be, Lucy can be easily swayed by a ‘better deal’, Lincoln manages to sweet talk her into forgoing the family TV for their father’s smaller, black and white TV. (Black and white are her favorite colors).

Introverted Sensing (Si): Lucy has developed a cynical mindset, groaning “as usual” any time someone admits that they forgot her. She has a habit of lurking in dark spaces and scaring people from behind. She’s incredibly attached to older family heirlooms and the Loud family history, trying many times to contact the spirits of deceased relatives, and when in charge of watching Lilly, proudly showing the baby framed pictures of these relatives.

Extroverted Thinking (Te): Lucy can be adamant, often leading to arguments with her roommate, the just as stubborn Lynn. She hates to admit she’s wrong, and commonly refuses to be moved from her place–opting the golden rule of “I was here first”. Lucy likes some degree of control over a situation, doing her best to try and pin mischief on her sisters when she doesn’t want Lincoln to take the fall.

Sisters Mischief Harry Potter Party, Post 1

This Halloween we threw a HP party at my house, and it was freaking awesome, if we do say so ourselves.  The guests got into it, the atmosphere was Hogwarts-like, and we feasted as only wizards can.  This will be a series of posts documenting the party!

First of all, guests received the necessary invitations notifying them of the Hogwarts Halloween feast.  It was written in the style of the invite Harry received to go to Hogwarts, had a fancy wax seal, and included a ticket for the Hogwarts Express.  Guests entered the party via Platform 9 ¾, walking through the brick wall.  Inside they found everything lit by nothing but candlelight, as well as:

  • Flying keys like those found guarding the Sorcerer’s Stone
  • The Great Hall, complete with floating candles and golden plates
  • Various school books
  • Copies of the Quibbler and wands strewn about
  • music playing songs from the soundtracks
  • my tv turned into a fireplace with floo powder next to it
  • Hogwarts portraits from the movies

And more details that will be in the next post!
