His hair is plastered to his forehead with sweat, he’s painted with a full body flush, and he’s wearing a shirt Phichit custom ordered that says “Tastier Than Katsudon” in screaming neon orange.

Deeper Than Ink | 01

P R E M I S E ⇒

Should you fall in love with someone, even in the slightest, your skin becomes marked with vibrant colors that depict the story of your emotions. A tattoo, per say. However, should they or you fall out of love, the bright hues dull to black and the feelings you once had for each other melt away. To many, it’s a blessing to not have to live with the pain of your past. But what’s the point when you have too many reminders–say 27?

P A I R I N G ⇒  namjoon x reader

G E N R E ⇒  angst, tattoo au, soulmate au

W O R D S ⇒  7.281

P A R T ⇒  one | two | three


Pebbles bounced against the sidewalk, caught between the concrete and the rubber soles of boots dragging across the pavement. The movement was slow and the sound was reminiscent of a modern romantic defeat, another tally to add to the chalkboard. Another inked reminder that would be incomplete on a pale skin canvas.

A single finger rose to itch at the back of a studded ear, scratching just above the intricate black swirls of patterned water that was splayed over a neck. The owner of this design–and the 27 others cluttering his skin–wasn’t a lost cause or a serial romantic as many had come to believe. But potentially the most unlucky man in the world.

There were many others like him, decorated in dozens of these brandishes to signify their accomplishments in a manner akin to a trophy shelf. Their skin was littered with these marks of past lovers who were only intended to become blackened symbols. However, hoarding tattoos of ones he adored was not a game to him like it was to others; he feared the attention and judgment that his ink gave him.

He was enamored by people and their stories, the things they had to say and the words that they would whisper to him. Falling for them was simply a side effect of his own curiosity that he had no control over, as the patterns would only appear when the emotions were mutual. People were drawn to him, not for the art etched into him, but for his elegant thoughts and charming words.

Truth or Dare With a Dash of Consent

(Send me a HP cliche and I’ll write a fic about it)

@official-thisisblue-account said: Eight year drinking games and truth or dare that doesn’t overlook consent.

AO3 LINK


Eight Year had been a little tense at first. Truth be told, Harry hadn’t expected so many of the Slytherins to come back to finish their education. And since Eight Years had a Common Room of their own, Harry soon had gotten used to see Malfoy, Zabini, Parkinson, Nott, and Greengrass a lot more than he had thought he’d see them. 

Ron and a few others had grumbled about the Slytherins at first, but eventually even they had given it a rest, once it had become apparent than the Slytherins were actually trying to be decent to the rest of the students. And after a few months, all Eight Years were, if not friends, at least decent acquaintances. It had been so much more than Harry had expected.

He also hadn’t expected his eyes to start following Malfoy around again, but that had happened as well. And that time around, the reason for his interest in Malfoy was quite different. Though Harry tried to be discrete. There was no point embarrassing himself by revealing his crush on Malfoy. His plan was to wait for it to die eventually. So far, the crush had only grown.

Since everyone was on decent terms by Valentine’s Day, and since they were already adults, it was no surprised when a game of Truth or Dare and drinking were suggested for the holiday’s evening. 

Hermione was firm in her belief that the game lacked severely in the consent department. Harry agreed with her. Not that she even needed his support since everyone had pretty much learned not to go against her strong opinions. 

So nobody (openly) opposed her decision to make a little change to the game. And add a bit of romance, at least according to her. Harry was relived when she explained the changes. If a person really didn’t want to answer a truth or do a dare, they simply would have to drink instead. Even if they try to answer the truth or do the dare, either they wouldn’t be able to talk, or an invisible barrier would prevent them from completing the dare. If two or more people were involved in a dare, if even one of them didn’t want to participate in the dare, the person who got dared would have to drink. 

Harry thought it clever that Hermione had added the drinking to her rules twist. This way, people were much more agreeable with it. And so the game began. The first time the modification spell took effect was when Justin was dared to slap Parkinson on the arse. Parkinson wasn’t too much into that, so Justin hit an invisible barrier only an inch from Parkinson’s arse. 

A few more times the modification prevented a truth or a dare to be answered or completed. And Harry learned some interesting things about some people. Mainly about Malfoy. Okay, he was mostly interested in things about Malfoy. But he thought that everyone would find it interesting that Malfoy had gone out to the Muggle world on a few occasions after the War. The idea itself was so bizarre. But Harry would pay a fortune to see Malfoy in the Muggle world. 

Half an hour after the game had begun, it had brought a new couple together. Apparently Greengrass and Nott were quite fond of each other and when Nott got dared to kiss Greengrass, the spell allowed them to do so. They had cosied up on the loveseat and were ignoring everyone else.

It was Parkinson turn to ask and she grinned in Harry’s direction. 

“Well, Potter, Truth or Dare?”

“Dare.” shot Harry back.

“I was hoping you’d say that. Let’s see… I dare you to give Draco here a nice heartfelt kiss on the lips.”

Besides Harry, Ron burst into laughter. “Pfft, did you forget the new rules, Parkinson? No way this dare will end with anything other than drinking.”

It seemed to Harry that he had been quite successful at hiding his ogling of Malfoy. Or maybe it was just Ron who hadn’t noticed. It didn’t matter anyway. There was no way Malfoy would want to kiss Harry, so Harry didn’t have anything to worry about.

He focused his attention on Malfoy and walked to him. Harry couldn’t read the other boy’s face. There was annoyance, maybe? Something else?

“Let’s get this over with, Potter.”

Harry almost sighed in disappointment. In that very moment he wished Hermione hadn’t intervened with the rules. That way he could at least get a kiss from Malfoy. 

He leaned towards Malfoy and prepared to hit the invisible barrier of the modification spell with his face. Except he didn’t hit it, so his lips landed on Malfoy’s, no resistance whatsoever. 

Oh, Malfoy’s lips were so soft, so inviting. Harry could spend hours kissing them, biting them, licking them. The lower lip was fuller than Harry thought it would be, and he absolutely loved it.

A moment later the realization finally hit him and he opened his eyes. He stared right back at Malfoy’s comically wide grey eyes. Malfoy seemed to have realized what had happened as well. Well, there was only one logical thing for Harry to do. He grinned into the kiss and placed his hands on Malfoy’s waist, bringing their bodies flush against each other. Malfoy’s hands flew to Harry’s hair and he grabbed mercilessly at the dark locks. He had opened his lips invitingly and Harry deepened the kiss, his tongue meeting Malfoy’s.

Ron had the misfortune of taking a sip from his drink when the kiss had happened, and was still choking, not that Harry noticed. Malfoy had all of his attention. So Harry didn’t hear Parkinson speaking to her fellow Slytherins either.

“I told you all that Potter ogled Draco’s arse but noooo, you didn’t believe me. So, pay up now, losers!”

That coffeshop AU and the actors AU are GOLDEN. I NEED that in my life now ;(

I can’t really write much for the coffee shop AU because I don’t have any inspiration for it but here are some extracts and concept writing for what the Actors Au would look like

Disclaimer - this is a fake au fic from the Rivals series. In universe it would be written by a Viktuuri fan and so is based on how that fans see umfb!viktor and Yuuri not as they actually are. It was also written as a joke on my phone in half an hour so please don’t take this as serious writing!

Original concept - no.5 of the ‘15 most popular fics in the Rivals universe alternate AO3’ - Original post here


Title: Before the Camera, Behind the Screen

Rating:  Explicit

Archive Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply

Category: M/M

Fandom: Figure Skating RPF

Relationships: Katsuki Yuuri/Viktor Nikiforov

Characters: Katsuki Yuuri, Viktor Nikiforov, Phichit Chulanont, Christophe Giacometti, Celestino Cialdini, Yakov Feltsman

Additional tags: Alternate Universe, Alternate Universe – Actors, Enemies to Friends to Lovers, Eventual Smut, they’re actors playing figure skaters for a big Hollywood movie, and they hate each other, at first at least, why do they not use body doubles for their sex scenes?, plot reasons that’s why

Summary:

Sweat-slicked skin gleamed under the lights, two bodies moving as one as gasps of pleasure filled the quiet room. Katsuki had his head thrown back, eyes glazed as he rode out the sensation, thighs clamped tight around the warm body beneath him and hands fisted into silver hair…

“Cut.” Came the harsh voice of the director as the studio lights snapped back on, flooding the scene with a glaring brightness. “Take five everyone.”

“And you two.” he turned to the two actors who were both blinking in the sudden light and wiping the fake sweat from where it was lying stickily across their skin. “You need to get it together soon or this whole movie is going to be a disaster. You’re supposed to be in love for Christ’s sake! Katsuki, you look like you’re counting down the minutes until you can finish this scene and go and get lunch and Nikiforov, you’re just looking bored. You’re supposed to be actors! I don’t care how much you hate each other, you better act like you don’t or you’re both getting fired.”

Katsuki glared down at Nikiforov who was still lying beneath him, looking annoyed.

“You better step up your game.” Nikiforov drawled, looking disparagingly up at the man still straddling him. “I have a reputation to uphold and I’m not going to lose it to a bad movie because of one amateur, one-hit-wonder actor who can’t do his job properly.”

“Maybe it would be easier to do my job if you weren’t such an arrogant ass who can’t admit to his own mistakes.” Katsuki shot back, glare intensifying. “And stop acting like you’re such a big deal. You might be famous but you’re not that impressive.”

“I don’t know, I’ve been reliably informed by a lot of people that I’m very impressive.”

Nikiforov flicked his eyes to where their bodies were joined, only the smallest pieces of fabric separating them, eyebrow raised suggestively. Katsuki snorted in disgust, then rolled his hips in an unexpected movement that made a certain part of Nikiforov perk up in unintentional interest.

“I’ve seen better.”

what's your list of fav bellarke fan fiction????

im currently bitter bc i basically had this finished but tumblr decided to have a glitch and delete it all. anyway, here’s round 2 

cause i got you, and now that’s all that matters by @marauders-groupie

lana is beautiful and so is this fic. i think my tag for it was just a bunch of exclamation points which basically means that i’ll be in love with it forever and never be able to properly use words when talking about it. 

Clarke gets dirt stuck under her nails, Bellamy always keeps books at hand, they are both a mess but somewhere between throwing tomatoes at each other and hiding, they fall in love.

Or: Bellarke in the countryside.

Prompt: Imagine Bellarke in Modern AU. With Sunday brunches on the back porch and whispered I love yous when no one else is listening.

aphelion by @kindclaws

with the possibility of coming across as too much, let me just say that there are few people who have stolen my heart in the degree that Sara has. That being said, even if I didn’t love her to the moon and back, I would still be able to see beautiful talent, and that is definitely something that my dear friend has. So here’s the short summary of my latest obsession of hers: 

It’s been two years since the spaceship Aphelion mysteriously disappeared, its crew branded by the ARK as traitors to be shot on sight. Jake Griffin was on that ship, and with him, a dangerous secret that could change civilized space forever.

Now, Clarke wants some answers - and revenge, if she can get it. Bellamy wants a bigger ship - specifically, Clarke’s. Wells wants to fix the system his father broke. Octavia wants a little fun. Miller wants everyone to stop making poor life choices. Harper wants to kiss the new girl. And Raven? Well, Raven just wants to blow shit up.

The universe won’t know what’s hit it. (Space pirates AU!)

Sent and Delivered by @clarkescrusade

Listen. I love social media aus, nerdy!Bellamy and thirsty!Clarke. Thankfully this fic has a little of all that. It also has adorable fanboy Jas and that’s also a plus for me. This one has stayed with me since the night i read it, so it’s def up there on my faves list. 

Clarke is pretty sure Bellamy is the hottest lyft driver she’s ever had, and it certainly doesn’t hurt that he’s a pretty great conversationalist, too. When she finds out him and Raven used to work together, it feels natural to become friends. She just never thought they’d get along quite so well, or that their lives would come together so easily, or that she’d fall madly in love with him. But that’s life.

aka: a social media au incorporating text messages, snapchats, tweets, and instagrams that definitely no one asked for.

You’re Cool On The Internet, At Least by @prosciuttoe

Once again, SOCIAL MEDIA AU. They meet on facebook and yeah. this is hella cute. I love it. Also, anything Em writes is magic, so please read this and give her the love and adoration she deserves. 

Look, Clarke will not dwell on this. She will not get flustered just because a possibly cute guy on Facebook apparently shares her views on what constitutes a terrible person.

Ten minutes later, her phone gives a short, irritated buzz; startling her enough that she jumps.

Biting at the inside of her cheek, she allows herself a quick peek.

Friend request from Bellamy Blake.

Clarke has no idea how she manages to develop a crush on a guy who won’t stop fighting everyone on Facebook, but here they are.

(Or: Clarke meets Bellamy on Facebook. They hit it off.)

neither lost nor found by awildthing 

other than social media au, my weakness is modern magic users au. AND THIS IS BEAUTIFUL. 

Bellamy Blake arrives on campus and Clarke’s magic suddenly starts going haywire.

Or, Clarke meets another magic user and teaches him to control his gift–and learns some things along the way.

I Don’t Want To Be Your Friend (i wanna kiss your neck) by @spacexualkids

i love tierney more than i love most people on this god forsaken site. her writing is always like coming home which is way too cheesy even for me. so here. read this summary so i dont become a blubbering mess. 

She finds Bellamy back on that floral couch. They’d moved it into the screened room for the winter, and then back out again once the days grew long and warm. It was becoming another tradition, apparently.

And so was this; him smoking on the sofa, her head on his shoulder, voices low in the early morning while everyone else was asleep and the world felt like it belonged to them, just for the moment.

“Someone had fun,” he teases, flicking at a spot on her neck. Clarke reaches up to feel the tender skin; Glass must have given her a hickey while they were getting carried away.

She flushes, but he’s looking back at the sunrise. “I always have fun,” she reminds him, and he groans.

“Yeah, I remember.”

“This is my favorite part, though,” Clarke says, curling up a little more against him so he’ll put his arm around her for warmth. She’s still kind of drunk, so she’s not sure if she’s making sense, but she trusts that he’ll get it. Bellamy always seems to understand what she means. “Just–us. It’s my favorite.”

Bellamy stubs out his cigarette and leans back against her. “Mine too.”

That’s all I have time for tonight, but I do have a longer one in my drafts that I plan on finishing and publishing soon. 

I will also use this to shamelessly self promo - I’m taking requests for the next two weeks bc HOLIDAYS! no more teaching for me for two weeks and that is glorious. 

so pls send in any and all prompts you want filled by yours truly

So I see a lot of ‘two types of the signs’ posts, and while I’m not really that sure about them because I think that’s less important than the way placements interact with each other, I thought it would be interesting to do one that’s a bit different than usual: optimist / pessimist rather than introvert / extrovert. Okay!

Aries Pessimist: Is negative about everything. Not a big fan of teamwork. Gets angry or upset easily; finds it hard to control their emotions. Takes offence quickly. Needs a lot of love and adores being complimented / admired.

Aries Optimist: Think of a lot of new ideas very quickly and is always completely convinced that the current one is perfect. So excitable. Can be a bit of a messy worker. Laughs all the time. Can be arrogant.

Taurus Pessimist: Is a bit of an Eeyore sometimes. Doesn’t trust easily. Worries a lot about financial matters in particular. Is a saver rather than a spender. Goes over ideas repeatedly until they’re totally perfect.

Taurus Optimist: Is very sure of their place in the world. A hard worker. Loves to treat themselves. Thinks every relationship is going to end in marriage. Can be a little shy, but will soon become incredibly friendly.

Gemini Pessimist: Low self-esteem so is always changing and doesn’t like to be very honest about their true self. Worried all the time. Lots of nervous energy. Good at masking their feelings but hates doing it.

Gemini Optimist: Very excitable. Talks faster when they’re happy. Most things bounce off them. Rushes off to new opportunities without finishing their latest project. Trusts everyone, but can be untrustworthy themselves. 

Cancer Pessimist: Very weepy and emotional. Is always scared people won’t like them. Intensely protective of those they care about and worries about them all the time. Is hardly every honest because they’re scared of getting hurt.

Cancer Optimist: Can be child-like. Often very naive. Thinks every new relationship / friendship is much better and more significant than the last. Falls in love very quickly and is hardly ever afraid to admit it. 

Leo Pessimist: The most insecure person you will ever meet. Puts way too much store by what others think of them. Obsesses over what they’re wearing to the point of unhealthy. Short temper. Easily offended.

Leo Optimist: Is generally a very confident person. Gullible and naive, but in a charming way. Very generous. Trusts people way too quickly. Loves everyone else, but loves themselves too and is hardly ever afraid to show it.

Virgo Pessimist: Worries way too much about everything. The voice of doom in a group project. Can have unhealthy habits which may be eating related. Works really, really hard; needs very much to be appreciated.

Virgo Optimist: Hard-working; things tend to turn out right for them. ‘Adopts’ new friends and looks after them. Likes to motivate others. Is shy about new relationships, but once in them is very positive.

Libra Pessimist: Can be ‘fake’. Likes other people more than they like themselves, and never does anything for themselves. Very creative, but is meticulous about new ideas and harsh on themselves.

Libra Optimist: The sort of person you want as a group leader. Creative and generous with ideas. Likes to look nice and is generally pretty confident. Is always determined in relationships; wants to make them work out.

Scorpio Pessimist: Is afraid that someone they care about will get hurt, so is very protective. Can be defensive and doesn’t let barriers down easily. Is always predicting the downfall of society. Doesn’t trust easily.

Scorpio Optimist: Good at hiding it when they feel scared or sad. Tends to have a pretty thick skin. Loves change, because they know it’s always for the better. Tends to work hard at projects they believe in.

Sagittarius Pessimist: Doesn’t believe the world is a good place. Always changing their mind because they don’t believe in themselves. Runs away from things. Actually feels guilty for being a pessimist.

Sagittarius Optimist: Believes in luck and thinks they have lots of it. Can make the best of any situation. Always laughing. Looks forward to the future so much that they are sometimes discontent with the present.

Capricorn Pessimist: Is an eyebrow raiser. Has a don’t-fuck-with-me walk. Probably doesn’t believe in love. Is always, always, always negative. No exceptions. Thinks no-one is going to succeed. 

Capricorn Optimist: Works insanely hard for what they want and knows how much they deserve. Generally very confident. Ambitious. Takes a long time to fall in love, but when they do, is convinced it will last forever.

Aquarius Pessimist: Hates anyone and everyone. Is the most contrary person you’ll ever meet. Is disgusted by mainstream culture. Makes disparaging comments. Incredibly snarky and probably actually really smart.

Aquarius Optimist: Believes that the world can be a good place and will work to make it one. One of those people that get inspiring novels written about them. Understands people quickly. Usually pretty confident.

Pisces Pessimist: Gets trodden on because they don’t think they’re worth standing up for. Can be whiny or weepy. Insecure and constantly changes the way they look and act because they expect people to dislike them.

Pisces Optimist: Falls in love so quickly and never learns no matter how much they get hurt. Adorably naive. Thinks everyone is beautiful. Trusts people insanely quickly. In love with the universe.

Note: Some of these are more favoured by traditional astrology than others - for instance Aries is usually expected to be optimistic.

Drew’s Great Big Beauty and the Beast Review

SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS

THERE IS NO GOING BACK

THIS IS A SPOILER-FILLED REVIEW

IT IS ALSO VERY LONG

AND THERE ARE LOTS OF SPOILERS

SO PLEASE BE AWARE

THAT THERE ARE SPOILERS HERE

BEFORE YOU START READING

Let me start off by mentioning how much this movie means to me. I’ve kind of made my niche on the internet by dreamcasting Disney movies as if they were live action. I’ve made a ridiculous number of edits, I mean I’ve spent hours, days, probably weeks on this stuff at this point, and many of these edits have been focused on Beauty and the Beast. Live action versions of Disney movies are like… my Thing. And, to be totally honest, this really is only the second faithful adaptation. Alice in Wonderland was a total reworking of the Alice story, not really a cartoon-to-live-action like this. Maleficent completely retold the story from a different angle by making one Disney’s most vicious villains not only sympathetic but good. Cinderella is so close (and so good, I might add) but visually it’s vastly different from its animated counterpart, especially when it comes to Lady Tremaine and the Fairy Godmother, and it’s not a musical. The Jungle Book is the closest we’ve seen to a real and true “live action remake” as opposed to a live action reinterpretation. But here we are. Disney did it. They took one of their most beloved animated classics and straight-up made it into a live action movie without cutting any songs or really very much at all…

And oh boy, did they knock it out of the park.

I love this movie. This is what I’ve been waiting for.

I love Emma Watson as Belle. I think she’s a wonderful choice, I completely buy into her as Belle. She’s beautiful and intelligent and spunky. Her singing is fine. She’s not Kristin Chenoweth or Sutton Foster, but Belle doesn’t need to be. She’s also not Meryl Streep or Daniel Day-Lewis, you know, Emma doesn’t go through a massive transformation and disappear into the role, but she doesn’t need to because she’s already so much like Belle. Still, I don’t find myself watching it thinking about Emma playing the role, I think of her as Belle, which is the goal of acting really. I love that this Belle is so active. I love that she is continuously trying to find a way to escape from the castle. The addition of the laundry machine and teaching the young girl how to read is so good because it actually shows us Belle’s intelligence. In the animated movie, we know Belle’s smart because we’re told Belle’s smart. She reads books and, sure, she acts rationally and she certainly shows the poise of an intelligent person, but this new scene gives us an active example of her intelligence and creativity while also demonstrating the oppressive and small-minded nature of the townspeople. Emma’s Belle is charming and smart and lovely, and I think she captures the essence of Belle perfectly.

All that being said, our two male leads really steal the show for me. I’ve seen the movie twice now and each time, one of the leading gentleman really jumped out. The first time I watched, Luke Evans felt like the true shining star of the film. His Gaston reminds me of Jason Isaacs as both Captain Hook and Lucius Malfoy. He isn’t just vain… this guy is a legitimate narcissist, it seems like his mind has truly been twisted by the war. This Gaston is even more evil than the one we left behind in the world of animation. Gaston has always been terrifying because of his charisma. The way he’s able to charm the people of the village is chilling and this time around we see even more of that trait, paired with a darker and more violent streak particularly illustrated by Gaston tying up Maurice and leaving him for the wolves. Plus, both times I saw the movie the audience gasped in horror when Gaston stomped on Belle’s lettuces.

The second time I saw the film, I was specifically watching for Dan Stevens’s performance as the Beast and man, this is good stuff. The Prince at the beginning is such a drama queen. He’s so over-the-top with his costuming, wig, even his gestures are extremely theatrical. The make up at the beginning is particularly brilliant, burying the Prince’s face in streaks of blue and silver so he still feels like an obscure figure that we don’t quite see. When Belle first meets the Beast, this is all still evident. The way he hides in the shadows, even his lines of dialogue, it’s all very dramatic. And then as the movie progresses, you can see this flair for melodrama fade away as he becomes a more grounded person. He becomes gentler, kinder, and his intelligence, which has always been there, comes forward. By the time we see the Prince again at the end, you can tell that this is the same man but he has been changed. The animated film’s human Prince always felt disconnected from the Beast for me. Sure, they made the eyes the same, but it was hard to see much else because we just see so little of him, so he always felt rather vanilla. That’s not the case here. When the Prince transforms back to a human at the end, this feels like the same character we have watched throughout the film. I’m sure this is aided by the incredible motion capture and CGI work, because the Beast is animated superbly, but Dan’s performance is just stellar.

The objects are perfect. There’s only one shot that I think feels odd (when Belle is carrying Lumiere with Cogsworth walking in front as they lead her to her room) but other than that one moment, I never second guess them as objects. They feel and act real. Lumiere’s movements in particular are incredible, right down to his close up at the start of “Be Our Guest.” I was worried about Plumette before seeing the movie because the bird design is so unusual, but it makes sense since they needed her to be able to fly to get around, and doesn’t feel out of place at all in the movie. Mrs. Potts and Chip are also beautifully animated, they always feel like real and solid objects with weight to them. Their relationship is wonderful, so loving and caring. Chip’s line, “OK. I’m older” is one of my favorite little moments of the whole thing. Cadenza is a wonderful addition to our cast of characters and I did not expect his relationship with Garderobe, but they were an excellent surprise. And Frou Frou! I love that Frou Fou is Garderobe’s and that he becomes Cadenza’s bench and is therefore the link between the two throughout their years in the curse. They’re just so sweet.

Maurice has been an under-reported character in all of this, and that’s a shame because Kevin Klein knocks this role out of the park. He is absolutely wonderful as Maurice. He is fatherly and kind but he has also clearly made mistakes as a parent and that is kind of embraced and understood in the storytelling. He is sincere at all times in a role that is pretty exaggerated in the animated film. If Maurice’s arrival in the tavern had been played exactly like the original, it would have felt campy, but Kevin Klein’s earnestness grounds the moment in reality. Not to mention his quips about snow in June and “apparently that’s what happens around here when you pick a flower” are delivered brilliantly.

Let’s talk Lefou. I don’t like this Lefou, and here’s why. Every other character in this film feels developed in a natural way. It feels like we are learning more information about these characters that has always existed, we just didn’t fit it in the first time around. Lefou, on the other, doesn’t feel like a character who has been developed but a character who has been rewritten. They clearly got the seed of an idea to make him gay but felt squeamish about making him evil and gay (and rightfully so), so they wrote this redemption arc that feels forced and really doesn’t actually go anywhere… Lefou’s turn during the battle with the castle objects doesn’t actually do anything, so the whole thing feels arbitrary. After seeing the film the second time, my friend and I spent probably an hour and a half just talking about Lefou and came up with a brilliant solution to this whole mess of a character… more on that in a moment…

Incorporating the Enchantress into the story is very compelling. I think it’s very obvious who Agatha is throughout the movie, but it gives the sense that she wants the spell to be broken, she wants the Beast to learn his lesson, which is very interesting. Having her arrive after the spell has completed and actively reverse it is a riveting choice, and I actually felt like we were missing a moment with her where she realizes that she made a mistake. When she was watching the separated loved ones reunite, it seemed like there was a seed of remorse that was not addressed.

The character development is very well done across the board, but I think something this movie did that was important and contributes to its success is the development of the spell itself. I think this was one of the most brilliant moves the film made. The eternal winter around the castle explains the sudden weather changes in such a short period of time while still using the seasons as an emotional storytelling technique like the animated film. The wolves are also clearly part of the curse here – I would have actually liked to have seen them included in the finale sequence, either transformed into humans like the objects, or else disappearing like mist with the rest of the eternal winter. Having the castle crumble every time a petal falls from the rose is so smart as well; it explains why the objects know every time a petal fall while also representing their and the Beast’s disintegrating humanity. But the best part of the curse’s development was definitely the memory loss. Adding the simple line to the opening narration about removing the people of the castle from the minds of the people who loved them was absolutely inspired. This one quick line explained a huge loophole that the animated film left regarding the presence of a massive castle in the woods and a royal family that apparently the entirely world did not know about. But even better than that, it created some wonderfully emotional reunions at the end. My friend beside me gasped so loudly when our favorite teapot exclaimed, “Mr. Potts!” and the moment with Henri Cogsworth and his wife(?) was so hilarious and, in my opinion, subtly hinted at our second LGBT character in this universe. Which brings me to the Lefou thing.

Here’s what my friend and I came up with: in the opening sequence, we see Cogsworth lurking in the shadows telling the Prince that “it’s time,” we see Lumiere handing the Prince a candelabra, we see Mrs. Potts chasing after Chip… in the midst of all this, we could also show a masked jester entertaining a few people at the ball. When the Enchantress arrives, a lot of people run out – presumably that’s where Mr. Potts and Mrs. Cogsworth escape and why they’re not included in the spell – and the jester leaves with them as well. At the end, the Pottses are reunited, the Cogsworths are reunited, and then Lefou recognizes his old beau, Chapeau the violinist/coat rack, and joins the finale back in his jester outfit. It makes total sense for Lefou to be “the fool” of course and explains why he falls into the abusive friendship he has with Gaston, since it would parallel the relationship he probably would have had as a jester for the similarly self-centered Prince. This adds two quick two-second shots to the opening scene, one of the masked Lefou juggling or something and one of him fleeing when the Enchantress shows up, and about twenty seconds at the end for the reunion and revelation and, in my opinion, is so much less problematic than writing our first ever LGBT Disney character as an evil sidekick with a forced redemption arc – this way, he had his memory erased, just like everyone else. Just our little idea but I think it could have blended into this world quite smoothly. Alas, here we are.

Moving on! The finale is absolutely gorgeous. The whole ending sequence is my favorite thing about the whole film. The fight scene is fantastic and then from there to the end, everything is so marvelous. We know the objects are going to be okay in the end, but seeing them all finally lose the battle they’ve been fighting and become motionless household objects is… emotional! Then the Prince’s transformation is brilliant, giving the perfect nods to the original film, and each character’s subsequent change back to their human state is perfect (Cadenza’s teeth!), especially when Mrs. Potts and Chip go sliding down the steps. And then when she says, “You smell so good,” oh my gosh. Whoever contributed that line is a genius. I go all warm and fuzzy just thinking about it. Then we have the wonderful and funny reunions and then the final dance sequence, where Emma is beautiful and Dan is looking good in bright sky blue and rococo curls in his hair. Audra McDonald sings flawlessly and we have that beautiful moment between Mrs. Potts and Maurice that made my little shipper heart do a backflip, even if there is a Mr. Potts now. I’m still not sure if I’m on board with the growl, but I adore the line about the beard – apparently it was written for the original film and Paige O'Hara even recorded it! But it interrupted that finale sequence so they never used it. I think it works perfectly here, it’s so cute.

The first time watching, I felt the pacing was so odd in the film, with some abrupt transitions that didn’t quite work. I felt that less so the second time, maybe just because I was expecting it, and sometimes I actually liked the sudden change. I also don’t fully understand the shuffling of scenes at the beginning. The animated film goes (1) “Belle,” (2) Belle and Maurice at home, (3) Maurice leaves for the fair, (4) Maurice arrives in the castle, (5) Gaston proposes, (6) “Belle (Reprise),” (7) Philippe comes back and tells Belle to the castle. The movie rearrange this so almost all of the village scenes happen together, reordering that sequence as 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 4, 7. Because of this we end up going from Maurice’s whole scene in the castle, back to the village for about thirty seconds with Philippe and Belle, then right back to the castle again. This made the whole sequence of events feel rushed even though each moment was given about the same amount of time, or more, as the original film. Additionally, I felt some of the filming choices from a cinematography point of view were weird. There were several times that we were zoomed in on a character, usually Belle or Gaston in the village, and it felt like the shot was kept tight to hide something but then there wasn’t anything to hide… it’s a hard thing to articulate, but I definitely noticed it through both viewings.

The design of this movie is amazing. Breathtaking. Thousands of beautiful costumes and such detail – human Cogsworth’s buttons have the Roman numeral numbers on them! Not to mention the object designs. Lumiere’s candlestick form is clearly inspired by the Broadway production, which was an absolutely brilliant choice. Garderobe’s wardrobe form is A THEATRE, it has box seats and a stage with curtains as her mouth piece! Even the villagers are designed with such care, memorable and reminiscent of the original in many places – the man with the scissors and the guy with the mustache, the Baker is very similar to his animated design… I would have liked to have seen blonde silly girls to contrast them more distinctly with Belle, but they are what they are. The set design, from the village to the absolutely incredible castle, it’s all so, so good. I love the little flowers painted on the doorway to Maurice’s cottage and I loved the magnificent, baroque-meets-gothic design of an extremely unique castle. I know people are up in arms about the yellow dress, I know it’s not perfect, but it doesn’t stick out so horribly in the movie and it moves so beautifully in the ballroom scene. And honestly, I’ve never cared about the yellow dress, the blue dress is the one I’ve always loved and I just think the live action interpretation is glorious. It does not feel like a costume, it feels worn-in, it feels natural, like it’s just Belle’s favorite dress, and I just love it so much.

Speaking of detail, they named the village. And they named it Villeneuve. As in Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve, the original author of the fairy tale. Come on. That’s fantastic.

Let’s see, some of my other favorite moments that jumped out at me that I wanted to mention… the whole “Gaston” scene in the tavern is awesome, maybe my favorite scene besides the finale sequence. I love that Lefou is going around paying everyone off to boost Gaston’s ego, I love the dance, I love the use of Tom, Dick, and Stanley as cronies throughout the entire movie, I love lifting the young woman and then lifting Lefou, the whole song is fun and funny and exciting and the new lyrics are just amazing - “Then I shoot from behind!” “Is that fair?” “I don’t care!” …That’s exactly what’s going to happen in the final battle. Ugh. So good.

The moment in “Something There” where the Beast moves to Belle’s end of the table, she puts down her spoon, and they both sip their soup out of the bowl… that hit me in a way the animated movie never has before. It’s amazing symbolism. He can’t eat with the spoon, she’s not going to lap it up like an animal, so they find a way they can both eat the same way. They’re meeting each other halfway. That’s some good stuff right there.

OH, and I can’t believe I haven’t mentioned “Be Our Guest!” Come on. They went hard with that. They put on a full Broadway production on the table in front of Belle! The way it just kept growing bigger and bigger was delightful. Plus I love that the grey stuff is designed after Be Our Guest Restaurant’s grey stuff, complete with the silver and grey chocolate caviar beads.

Replacing the animated film’s bookstore, which never really made sense in a town of people who think reading makes someone weird, with a small shelf holding a dozen old and worn books that Belle has read over and over is just such a wonderful touch. I love that Belle’s favorite play is Romeo and Juliet because she’s barely read anything else and I love that the Beast’s reaction is to roll his eyes at her selection. I would have liked to have seen the giving of the library be a little more deliberate and a little less off the cuff, and I definitely missed the “promises you don’t intend to keep” line, but I’m so satisfied with the choice to make the Beast a reader. Having “a very expensive education” totally makes sense, and what else would he have had to do with all that time? They each develop the other’s literary taste! What’s better in a relationship than that?

The new songs are lovely as well. “How Can A Moment Last Forever?” is so much better than “No Matter What,” I wish it could logically fit into the musical instead because it’s really, really good. “Days in the Sun” is so sweet, it’s nice to have those moments with the young prince and each of the objects and even Belle, and honestly I can’t stand “Human Again” so I’m good with this one, plus the lyrical nod to “A Change in Me” is nice. But “Evermore” is clearly stealing the show as far as the new songs are concerned. What a great song. I still think they could have done a little tweaking to the lyrics in order to still use “If I Can’t Love Her” but if we’re going to write a new song for the Beast, I’ll take this one. (But can we not digitally lower Dan Stevens’s voice next time? It sounds like a computer singing at some points.) I also loved all of the new/old lyrics that were incorporated into the songs we were familiar with. They felt fresh without being forced. The new “Gaston” lyrics are definitely my favorite, but the new lyrics that Mrs. Potts sings in the finale are touching. Plus, using the Broadway songs as underscoring was really nice, especially “Home.”

I’m just so delighted with this movie. Everything from the original is there but now there’s more. The stove is there. The coat rack is there. The footstool is there. They just paid so much attention to detail and did this movie the justice it deserved. I’m already prepared to call this my favorite movie. Easily. By miles. It’s beautiful and just absolutely everything I was hoping it would be.

It really is. Yuri likes this arrangement, and no matter how many looks Mila gives him, that’s the truth. He just wishes it sounded like all of the truth.

10 Reasons Why Sweet/Vicious Should Be Watched and Renewed From A Fan

Sweet/Vicious is an hour long drama/dark comedy series on MTV. The series follows Jules, a sorority sister and survivor of sexual assault, and Ophelia, the university pot dealer and skilled hacker, as they become vigilantes on their college campus taking down rapists. 

Or, at least that’s the general description of the show but really it’s so much more than that. And yet, people have been sleeping on this amazing show so here’s my attempt – a fan’s attempt – at getting you to watch Sweet/Vicious and hopefully, getting MTV to renew Sweet/Vicious for a second season. 

1. The most accurate portrayal of rape on television to date. 

Sure, sexual assault has been a popular beat in television dramas for years, but no one portrays it as real as Sweet/Vicious. Through the course of the ten episode season, the audience is exposed to several different and unique sexual assault cases. Our protagonist, Jules, finds herself a victim of sexual assault after her best friend’s boyfriend, whom is also her friend, rapes her at his frat’s party.  In another episode, we see that sometimes sexual assault is a two person job when two friends team up to drug unsuspecting girls at a bar only to usher them into an ride share and drive them to a dark ally where the driver sexually assaults the incoherent victim. 

Through the course of the season we see rapists who show no remorse. We see enablers, who through their silence or willingness to turn their heads, let rapes happen. We see that sometimes rape isn’t violent, that sometimes the victims don’t fight back or stop fighting back because they can’t win. 

Plus, there are multiple scenes in which Jules and other victims attend group therapy – including, a male victim! 

Through ten episodes we see the most accurate portal of the types of sexual assault cases that take place on college campuses around the world.  

Oh yeah, and they never victim blame or sympathize with the rapist. 

2. Explores sexual assault as it relates to hazing practices

In addition to the sexual assault cases talked about above, Sweet/Vicious does something no television show in modern television has done. It addresses the fact that hazing can be and usually is a form of assault. In fact this happens in the fourth episode of the show when Jules and Ophelia discover that the most popular sorority on campus has their recruits drinking in excess only to publicly shame them in a video when they don’t complete their tasks or disobey the president sorority sister. 

In my opinion, this was one of the most important sexual assault cases that Sweet/Vicious explored because it showed a different side of it. It showed females taking advantage of other females. Because, yes, females are just as capable at being the aggressor as men are. 

3. Hello, complexed female characters who double as vigilantes! What more could you want? 

Jules Thomas the bubbly sorority girl who, after being sexually assaulted by someone she considered a friend, doubles as a kick-ass vigilante providing victims of sexual assault the justice they deserve when the Title IX does nothing. But Jules is more than a just a girl fueled by her confusion and guilt over what happened. Sure, there are moments when she completely shuts down and is consumed by the nightmares of what she’s dealing with. But she’s also this fun loving girl who will do anything to make sure what happened to her doesn’t happen to any one else. She is a supportive friend who makes sure everyone around her knows she loves them. She likes belting out"Defying Gravity” and hanging out with her sorority sisters and Ophelia. Most importantly, she’s a girl who is more than just a victim of sexual assault.

And then there’s Ophelia Mayer a trust fun daughter, the campus weed dealer, and savvy hacker. Ophelia has problems of her own. A complexed relationship with her mother, a best friend who expects more from her than just dealing weed out of the college town’s record store, and a habit of finding herself in the campus police office. And yet, when she stumbles upon the vigilante she later learns is Jules she’s all hands in. Ophelia is unapologetically herself and she is the voice of some of the show’s best one liners. She is the first to learn of Jules’s sexual assault and never once shies away from supporting her and being their for her. But it’s not just Jules she supports and encourages but also Harris, her best friend. In addition, Ophelia struggle with love and commitment. And oh yeah, creator Jennifer Kaytin Robinson confirmed that Ophelia is bi – something she hopes to explore more in the second season. 

4. Amazing Friendships

Jules and Ophelia aren’t the only ones that are #bffgoals. Before Jules meets Ophelia, her best friend is Kennedy. Though their relationship is a rollercoaster there is no denying that these two girls love and support each other. Then you have Ophelia and her best friend Harris, a law student and co-worker at the record store. Harris is Ophelia’s cheerleader in the same way Ophelia is Jules. He encourages her to do better and in turn Ophelia supports him and his endeavors whole hardily. But even their relationship gets rocky because, well, that’s life. Even Kennedy and Ophelia become friends over their shared need to protect and empower Jules. 

That’s not all though, the relationship Jules and Ophelia have with their significant others also shows that your S.O. should also double as your best friends. Not to mention, the show portrays positive male friendships too like the ones Harris forms with Jules’s S.O. Tyler and Ophelia’s S.O. Evan. 

5. Shows that life doesn’t have to end after sexual assault. It’s possible to find love for yourself and others. 

Often in television and films, sexual assault completely ruins the victim turning them off from love completely. That’s not the case at all with Sweet/Vicious. Sure, Jules has moments where she is consumed by the nightmares of her assault but for the most part, she doesn’t let what happened to her ruin her chance at love. Through the course of the series she finds herself in a relationship with Tyler who treats Jules as she, and any girl, deserves to be treated. They have their ups and downs but one thing that stays constant is their ability to support each other blindly. In my opinion, this is an integral part of the series and could have the biggest impact on survivors of sexual assault. 

6. It’s not all dark. There’s comedic moments too

Sure, the series in rooted in two girls hunting down rapists and teaching them a “lesson,” but that’s not all it is. It simple terms, its a dark comedy. There are serious moments but there are also moments where you’re doubled over in laughter. Not to mention, Ophelia Mayer is the queen of comedic one liners like, “Robin is a bitch.” 

7. What about Carter?

Oh yeah, did I forgot to mention the pilot ends with the girls burying a dead body. Did that catch your attention? As if that wasn’t dramatic enough, Carter is the brother of Tyler, Jules’s on and off again boyfriend. And the series ends with a shot of a garage with a piece of evidence left behind. That alone is reason enough to get the show renewed. Come on MTV we need to know what happens there. 

8. Diverse Characters 

Diversity comes in many forms with Sweet/Vicious. For one, both Jules and Ophelia’s are African American. Unlike some shows where race becomes the only defining feature of a character and their story line, Sweet/Vicious takes a different road. Both Kennedy and Harris are more than just the color of their skin and both have dynamic characterization through the 10 episode series. In addition, they are their own characters whose scenes don’t always revolve around their friendship with our protagonists. 

And though, Ophelia never says she is bi, and Jennifer Kaytin Robinsons says she probably will never have a “coming out” reveal, the hints are there with promises for more exposure in a season 2. 

9. Shows men standing up against sexual assault and not making excuses

Sure, there are men who are absolute scum on the show – aka the rapists. But, the Sweet/Vicious also makes a point to bring attention to positive males who don’t excuse the actions of their peers. Without giving too much away, Jules and Ophelia find an unexpected ally while trying to take down Nate, Jules’s rapist. In addition, later in the season Ophelia’s boyfriend, Evan, steps in as a watchdog for a girl in his dorm who was sexual assaulted to make sure she doesn’t hurt herself. 

Plus, Harris and Tyler have their own disdain for sexual assault. Especially, Tyler who’s brother, Carter, sexual assaulted a girl before “disappearing.” Though he misses his brother, he makes sure it is clear that he does not agree with his brother’s actions what so ever. 

10. Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, the show’s creator, promises that she has even more issues to tackle in a season 2.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly Jennifer Kaytin Robinson discusses the story lines she hopes to explore in the second season. Including, LGBT+ victims, male victims, bullying, and even race issues. Come on MTV, take a step into the 21st century and let these stories be told! 

If you haven’t watched Sweet/Vicious yet I implore you to give it a chance. The full series is streaming now on MTV.com. And don’t forget to keep tweet #RenewSweetVicious

Pansexual Lee Jordan Headcanons

Day 2 of @potterprideweek: LGBT+ youth


  • 7 year old Lee blushing beet root red whenever his mum brings him to the park and they meet up with her friend and her son Miguel who’s Lee’s age and has pretty blonde hair that Lee likes to play with and run his fingers through.
  • Lee and Miguel being best friends for years and holding hands in the park and giggling and climbing to the top on top of the roof of the clubhouse to trade sweets and stories.
  • Miguel falling off that roof one day and Lee jumping down to help him and crying not being he twisted his own ankle jumping down but because Miguel hurt his arm and was upset.
  • Lee feeling guilty for not being able to tell Miguel his biggest secret because his parents tell him Miguel won’t be able to understand because he was a muggle.
  • 11 year old Lee having his first massive fight with his parents, saying he doesn’t want to go to Hogwarts, he wants to stay with Miguel instead.
  • Lee and Miguel having a sleepover two nights before Lee has to leave and they eat junk food and tell each other they’ll miss the other and they share a chaste kiss before they fall asleep that the next day neither of them talk about because neither are sure if it was just a dream or if it actually happened.
  • Lee getting on the train at Platform nine and three quarters and feeling sick with nerves, he finds a compartment on his own at first but soon is joined by two beautiful black girls and two identical pasty boys with bright ginger hair.
  • By the time the train arrives in Hogwarts, Lee has eaten his body weight in treats from the trolley and has made four new friends, Angelina, Alicia, Fred and George.
  • It’s not until he’s 14 that he realises just how good looking everyone at Hogwarts is.
  • Really, it’s ridiculous how gorgeous all the students are.
  • The girls are all pretty, the boys are all handsome and the students who identify as non-binary or gender-fluid are all beautiful and gorgeous and it’s honestly unfair because how is Lee supposed to concentrate on studying in the library when that cute sixth year girl with the curly hair keeps biting her lip across from him and the Slytherin boy in his year won’t stop stretching his legs at the table across from him.
  • One night he and the twins sneak into the kitchens, they’re digging into this delicious cake the house elves had left over when Lee tells them that he’s been doing some research in the library about liking different people and how he really doesn’t think he’s straight.
  • Fred and George stop eating and look at him calmly and ask him if he knows what sexuality he thinks he might be.
  • Lee shrugs and says he thinks he’s probably pansexual.
  • Fred and George smile brightly and clap him on the back and say that’s great, they’re proud of him and they love him no matter what.
  • It’s only when he takes on the role of commentator for the quidditch matches that he’s 100% sure of his pansexuality.
  • Lee tries to focus on the game and the fouls made but to do so he’s to watch every single player’s movements and that’s a little difficult when he’s attracted to a lot of them.
  • But he learns to cover it up by calling out every foul he sees loud and clear and shouting at the players instead of recounting their movements to the audience until it becomes natural for him to do so.
  • He receives a long telling off from McGonagall for his loud, unnecessary boisterous behaviour but his method works to keep his focus on the game.
  • At 15 he and Alicia go on a few dates and it’s nice and sweet and they kiss a few times which was really good but then they decide they’re better off being friends.
  • Also Lee noticed the way she looked at Katie Bell and knew he wasn’t the one for Alicia.
  • He dated a few more people and fell hard for a non-binary Hufflepuff named Adam when they were in sixth year. They went to the yule ball together and Lee thought Adam was the best person in the world.
  • Adam was kind, clever, they thought all of Lee and the twins’ pranks were complete genius and Lee was incredibly attracted to them in every way.
  • But something wasn’t quite right.
  • For a few weeks at the start of seventh year, Lee sort of shut down, he never cared about his sexuality, it never bothered him that he wasn’t straight, he knew he just liked people regardless of what they identified as but then why did it never feel quite right?
  • He and Miguel meet up every summer and Lee loves him but just as a friend now, he doesn’t want anything more and knows Miguel feels the same.
  • He still thinks Alicia, Angelina and loads of other girls at the school are beautiful and attractive but he doesn’t focus on them as much anymore
  • And Adam is perfect but Lee just knows that he’s not in love with them.  
  • After avoiding Adam for a while, they meet up again in the great hall during a free class and Lee tells them that they have to break up because it’s not fair on Adam to continue this relationship when Lee knows he can’t fall in love with them.
  • Adam smiles and says they understand and they knew Lee never could love them but they just wanted to enjoy their relationship while it lasted.
  • Lee frowned and asked how Adam knew he could never fall in love with them.
  • Adam patted his hand gently and said, “Because it’s obvious you’re in love with Fred Weasley.”
  • Lee’s body stiffened, his face went pale and every nerve in his body was screaming at him to deny it, to scoff and laugh at how preposterous the idea was.
  • But then Lee remembers the spark in his fingertips every time his hand brushes against Fred’s, how it always means so much more to him when Fred laughs at his jokes than anyone else in the world and how the other day when Fred brushed the hair out of Lee’s eyes, Lee couldn’t understand why his heart raced so much faster and harder than whenever he was with Adam or anyone else over the past few years.
  • “I’m sorry” Lee said softly and honestly, feeling Adam deserved an apology, “I didn’t…I swear I never realised…”
  • Adam smiled and kissed Lee’s cheek, “Don’t worry about it” they said genuinely and stood up from the table, “For what it’s worth, I think Fred feels the same.”
  • Lee never got a chance to ask Fred whether he did return his feelings or not because over the next few months they were all just too busy.
  • Umbridge, the tyrant was raining hell onto all of them, Lee, Fred and George joined the D.A. and Lee helped them with their new business and all the products they made and sold to fellow students.
  • One night after winter break, Lee and Fred were lying on Fred’s bed, George and their other dorm-mates fast asleep while  they were planning how best to slip one of their latest inventions into Umbridge’s tea when suddenly Fred stopped, looked at Lee for a long moment with those wide, unsure eyes and whispered,
  • “I like you Lee”
  • Lee’s heart caught in his throat, his stomach twisted with nerves, nausea or butterflies or possibly all three but he forced himself to say the words,
  • “I like you too.”
  • Fred broke out into a massive grin, bigger than any Lee thinks he has ever seen him wear and then in the blink of an eye, his soft lips were on Lee’s.
  • The kiss was like a lit match had been dropped into a flood of gasoline, every hair on Lee’s body stood up and tingled as he reached a hand around to slide into Fred’s hair and pulled him closer.
  • It was the giddy feeling of running his fingers through Miguel’s hair, it was the familiarity of spending time with Alicia, it was the burning attraction that he felt whenever he saw someone attractive on the quidditch pitch and it was the comfort and care he felt with Adam. But this time it was intensified by a million just by the added love that Lee felt for Fred and that he knew Fred for him.
  • So Lee was right, he was pansexual and he always had been but his heart had belonged to Fred for years, maybe ever since they first met, it just took him a long time to realise it.

A few of the mods of this blog have been talking, and we’ve been becoming increasingly concerned about a trend that we’ve all noticed in the DID community here. We’ve tried to address it in the past, but we feel that it’s important that we try again and acknowledge that it’s much bigger than we communicated before.

What systems need to understand is that it isn’t healthy for anyone to allow their life to revolve around or significantly focus on their alters and / or inner world. It’s one thing to work extensively with alters in order to try to stabilize and heal. Similarly, if a small group of alters works together to manage daily life, of course this requires some degree of internal interaction. What concerns us is seeing that many people in this community act like internal happenings are just as or more important than external events and responsibilities, like internal relationships are just as or more important than external relationships, or like having DID is one of the most important things about someone.

It’s important to get along with your alters. It’s important for every alter to feel respected and heard. It’s important for alters to feel safe and content because your alters are part of you (or, to be more accurate, your alters and you are part of the same overarching system). Your alters need to be doing well for you as a whole to be doing well. Their physical, emotional, and intellectual needs are no less or more important than yours or any other alters’.

What isn’t healthy is focusing on alters’ surface needs at the expense of working on what the system as a whole needs. For example, while child alters can feel more safe and accepted when they’re given toys and allowed to play, it’s the safety and acceptance that they really need. Giving child alters safe play time can help them to reach a realization of safety, but the toys and play time alone aren’t sufficient. Child alters aren’t literal kids that you’ve been tasked with babysitting. They, like every other part of you, were created and shaped by trauma, and they aren’t uniquely immune to its effects. What they need most is for you as a system to heal.

You may not be ready to face your trauma now. Instead, you can start with making sure that your external environment is safe. You can work on symptoms of other mental health conditions that you have. You can find and practice healthier coping mechanisms. You can learn what healthy relationships look like. You can learn to ground yourself when you’re dissociated and even to prevent yourself from dissociating. What you cannot and should not try to do is focus on exploring your system and alters indefinitely at the expense of working towards actual progress. Learning that your child alters feel safer when they have a stuffed animal to hug can be a great realization! Spending days, weeks, months, or longer trying to learn all of your alters unique preferences, however, is a distraction.

It is not healthy to focus on alters’ desires at the expense of external life. While giving alters time to do what they enjoy can help the system to internalize that every part matters, this shouldn’t interfere with academics, your job, or your goals in life. Just as self care is important, giving alters some time to themselves can make for a more stable and happier system. However, just as self care shouldn’t become an excuse to never try to get anything done, making your alters happy shouldn’t become the same. Alters documenting their existence on Tumblr isn’t more worthwhile than meeting up with friends, going somewhere fun, or learning a new skill. Giving alters time out isn’t a more pressing issue than getting your homework done, making sure that you understand what you need to do for your job, volunteering, working on a personal project, or doing something else meaningful or fulfilling.

Similarly, relationships with alters should not take precedent over external relationships. While, again, it’s important for all alters to get along, you shouldn’t prioritize alters dating each other or being friends with each other over looking for, forming, and supporting external friendships, romantic and / or sexual relationships, and general connections. Keeping to yourself because you have your alters for company is not the same as meeting someone new or reaching out to old acquaintances. External loved ones can introduce you to new ideas, teach you new things, support you through hard times, and help you to grow as a person in ways that alters, as part of you, can’t. External loved ones should never make you feel bad about having alters or try to turn any of your alters against each other, but you in turn should try not to neglect them in favor of focusing on symbolic relationships between your alters.

What happens in your internal world will never be a good replacement for external life. Focusing on the jobs that alters have can never be as fulfilling as succeeding academically or in a job of your own. Internal families, partnerships, and friends can never be as fulfilling as finding or making your own family, partner(s), and friends. It may be difficult for you to achieve what you want to externally right now, and that’s okay! If spending time thinking about your internal world helps you to feel calmer, more confident, or more prepared to deal with your actual life, that can be okay. However, you need to be very careful that your internal world doesn’t become a crutch. Remember, distraction can be a coping mechanism, but if taken too far, it’s just another pathological response that’s standing between you and healing.

Another concern is that by focusing too much on your alters and how they feel like separate individuals, you can lose sight of how you all fit together. It can be harder to heal from trauma if you can’t acknowledge that it happened to you, all of you, and not just to specific alters. It can be harder to learn to handle triggers, face your fears, or respond appropriately to other intense situations and emotions if you always lean on specific alters to do so. It can be harder to rely on your abilities if you believe that only specific alters can accomplish your goals. It can be harder to really grasp and work towards your potential if you never acknowledge that your alters’ strengths belong to the system as a whole even if you can’t all access those strengths evenly right now.

There’s also the risk of getting so caught up in alters’ presentations that you give them more weight than the system’s reality. For example, an alter’s age cannot determine what age individuals the system should be with; an alter that presents as a minor in an adult system cannot be romantically or sexually involved with actual minors, just as an alter that presents as an adult in an underage system cannot be romantically or sexually involved with actual adults. An alter presenting as a certain race or ethnicity does not truly understand what it’s like to actually be a member of that racial or ethnic group. An alter presenting as disabled or with conversion disorder does not truly understand what it’s like to actually be permanently disabled in that way. An alter being a doctor or therapist internally does not give the system the medical or professional knowledge and experience of a doctor or therapist. Alters’ internal realities are never as concrete as external reality.

Finally, there’s all of the issues inherent in making a disorder a key part of your identity. Remember that you as a person have so much more going for you than what internal world jobs or abilities your alters have. You’re worth so much more than a list of alter names and associated traits. There’s so much more that’s interesting about you than that you have DID, how many alters that you have, or how your alters present. Some people might struggle with internalizing this, and that’s okay. Even if you’re one of those people, working towards understanding yourself as a whole is worthwhile. Like everything else here, it may take time, effort, and a large change in how you view and understand your system and DID as a whole, but it’s so much healthier in the long run, and every little bit of progress counts.

To reiterate and to make sure that this is absolutely clear, working with your alters is important for healing! It’s okay to acknowledge that your alters can be different from you in important ways. It’s okay for alters to want to spend time doing things that they enjoy, working towards their own interests and passions, or forming their own relationships. It’s okay to not be sure yet what your system’s overall goals, talents, or traits are. It’s okay for several alters to be important parts of your daily life and to have no intention of changing that. Where the line needs to be drawn is allowing your DID, your mental illness, to overshadow your external life. While it may feel comforting now, it’s overall limiting, and you deserve better than that.

An Analysis Most Opinionated of One Hiccup Haddock

I was supposed to write an essay about bioluminescence this weekend, but I ended up writing one about Hiccup instead, because I’m trash.

Be careful handling this thing, it’s literally dripping with feels.


One of the things that makes HTTYD a great movie is that the characters were written to be imperfect, so we can cheer on their successes and relate to their struggles. They’re so multi-dimensional and realistic that everyone can see pieces of themselves.

For my part, I empathize with Stoick more than I do Hiccup, despite Hiccup being higher on my fave character list. I feel like he has a sort of frustrated affection for his son that’s a reflection of how I sometimes feel about my younger siblings. I see him as being both overprotective and lenient, in that he tries to keep Hiccup away from the fighting because he’s terrified that he’ll be killed (hence not letting him be on the fire squad and almost keeping him out of dragon training), but also doesn’t seem to impose consequences very much. He’s so used to Hiccup ignoring him that when he tells him to go home, he immediately adds for Gobber to “make sure he gets there.” And then Hiccup doesn’t even wait for Gobber to be out of earshot before he leaves again. He goes in through the front door and then straight out the back. Most problematic (and hilarious).

And I love this attitude. I’ll call him out on it in a heartbeat, but it never fails to make me laugh. I can respect that he kind of does what he wants most the time (or at least what he thinks he wants), instead of what he’s supposed to be doing. It’s not that he’s deliberately lazy, but he’s easily distracted and often prioritizes his own projects over other duties (like going out into raids/making a map instead of doing his job at the forge). That same quality also means that he’s going to do what he thinks is right despite any and all opposition. When he finds a cause, he’ll put everything else aside and see it through. The writers worked very hard to give him personality traits that had good and bad sides to them, just like a real person.

I love that he fits his name. In the books, there’s a lot of discussion about what it means to be a “Hiccup.” Initially, it’s just explained that it’s a name that means “mistake,” but as time goes on, it shows that it’s better understood as “unexpected.” Hiccups cannot be planned for. They cannot be stopped. They cannot be predicted. Being a Hiccup means being a force of change, an upset in the status quo. It ends up being something to be proud of, because even the Hiccups whose stories ended in tragedies helped to bring about great things.

One of the biggest things I appreciate about Hiccup is his growth throughout the first film, which Toothless is the catalyst for. Before Toothless, he was not happy. Between Snotlout’s and the twins’ mocking and his own weaponized sarcasm, he didn’t get along with his peer group. He didn’t really fit in anywhere, and nobody was in a hurry to help him. The major communication issues between him and his dad left him feeling like he could only gain his dad’s acceptance by killing a dragon. So he tries to do the Viking thing, but he chooses not to do it the Viking way. Instead of physically training like Astrid, he uses his intelligence, curiosity, and optimism to invent weapon after weapon to do the killing for him.

At this point, he’s kinda selfish. Because he’s thinking more of his own status than the village’s overall wellbeing, he keeps doing things his way even with failure after disastrous failure. This is a bad thing, because his failures are quite destructive and make everybody even more frustrated with him. (Not malicious, but certainly not friendly.) It’s also a good thing, because it’s what led to him meeting Toothless and being determined to build something that would let him fly.

(Something interesting here is that, while Hiccup and Stoick find it extremely difficult to relate, they’re actually very similar in some areas. The drive Hiccup has to keep trying over and over is the same bullheadedness that made Stoick keep sending ships to find the dragons’ nest, which also never worked. They both have the capacity for confident leadership (Hiccup just discovers his later.) They care deeply about and would do anything to protect their loved ones. They’re too stubborn to see the other’s perspective. They make lots of mistakes when dealing with each other. The dual “I did this” line came when they each finally realized the extent of the harm their actions caused. The reconciliation scene is a mutual apology well-deserved on both sides.)

The first time we see Hiccup take responsibility for his actions is when he says, “I did this,” and chooses not to kill a dragon he’d made defenseless. It’s from this point that he begins to do his best to right a wrong and restore what he’d stripped away. He starts thinking about someone else and turns his efforts from destruction to creation. And he has a lot more success, because that’s what he’s suited for. His self-esteem grows, as does his capacity to empathize with others. He becomes a better person, because he was incomplete before. He needed Toothless to balance him out and focus all of that energy, brilliance, and creativity on things that would help others, not just him.

The thing I find most endearing about Hiccup is his relationship with his soulmate. He loves that dragon SO MUCH. SO MUCH. Toothless is more important to him than anyone or anything in the world. He would leave everything behind for him in a heartbeat. And he does so much to show it: physical and verbal affection, treating him like an equal, trusting him blindly, being trustworthy himself, spending so much time and energy to give him back his freedom, being willing to sacrifice himself in his place, having a constant awareness of his needs and moods, playfully fighting and arguing, teaching him, learning from him, spending all his time with him… I could go on and on. They become more like each other as time goes on. Hiccup admires Toothless so much that he actively tries to become as dragon-like as possible by making himself wings and flame, and crafting his outfits to match Toothless’s appearance. It’s his best friend that dominates his thoughts and desires, and they are so much a part of each other that they can’t imagine being apart. There is no end to their love and loyalty to each other. Hiccup would fight the world to keep Toothless. His world IS Toothless. I will never, ever tire of these movies, and they are the number one reason.

Hiccup is a great character. He may not have the build or aggression of a Viking, but he’s just as headstrong as the best of them. A Viking can “crush mountains, level forests, and tame seas,” and when this boy sets his mind to something, he achieves the impossible. Like taking down a Night Fury. Like befriending a dragon. Like bringing peace to a 300-year war. He has an enormous capacity for compassion and forgiveness. He could insult someone five ways to Friday and be gone before they have a chance to respond. Where someone like Astrid might see a marked path, he sees unexplored possibilities. Sometimes he’s a diplomat, sometimes he’s a brat. He can be arrogant. He can be goofy. He’s a hero. He’s a dork. He’s independent. He’s impossible. He questions everything. He wants to experience it all for himself. He’s clever, creative, and intuitive. He’s a visionary. He’s a leader. He’s a hiccup.

The world tried to change him to fit in. Instead, he changed the world to fit him.

Hope you have fun reading these!! enjoy ;) 

anonymous asked:

Hey there awesome. Since you're so good at writing poly and you write for Dc comics, would you mind writing poly headcanons for the outlaws and a female reader.

I’m back! Sorry that it’s been more than a week since I’ve updated. It was not my intention. My computer broke down and I had to go get it fixed, so it took all week. I repeat, I LOVE THE OUTLAWS. I added Kori’andr in these because she’s a member, too. Sorry if you don’t like her or if you’re not about girls. 

  • Movie nights are a must. Roy has a tendency to pick really bad B-rated horror movies like Thankskilling, Killer Clowns From Outer Space or Zombeavers. Jason likes action movies and won’t admit it, but he won’t fight you on watching chick-flicks. Kori likes period movies or scary ones. 
  • Jason and Roy are those two guys who will comment on every single part of a movie. 
  • “He should’ve run out of bullets by now.”
  • “She can’t run in heels, can she?”
  • Roy is the biggest snuggler in the world. He will wrap around you whenever he falls asleep or does anything. Expect him to have his arms wrapped around your waist 24/7. 
  • Jason is the type to put his arm around your shoulder casually with a light blush on his face. This boy needs to work on expressing his feelings more often. 
  • Kori just loves holding your hand and swinging it as you walk. 
  • This is the type of relationship that just sorta happens. There’s not really a talk about everyone’s feelings. Kissing each other becomes a normal habit and everything else just normalizes after that. You were pretty certain it was a friends with benefits type thing for a while until Kori referred to you as her “first girlfriend” and you understood that it was an actual relationship. 
  • Jason does most of the cooking. Since his parents were basically useless during his childhood, he learned how to cook just about everything before Batman picked him up. 
  • Don’t let Roy or Kori near the stove if you want to keep your house. Kori thinks her star powers can cook food, but it just disintegrates it. Roy is the type of guy who thinks, “It says cook it on 350 for 30 minutes. So if I cook it at 700 degrees, it’ll only take 15 minutes.”
  • Be prepared for everything to turn into a gadget or weapon. Roy gets bored at home, so that’s how you end up with a lot of his strange inventions. Some things are pretty handy and cool, but others just make an even bigger mess or destroy things. 
  • Whenever there is a special occasion, Roy will make his own gifts. The most embarrassing time was when it was your birthday and he made you a vibrator “for those times when we’re all away”. It is kept in a box underneath your bed. 
  • If you request to join them on missions and what not, Jason and Roy will fight you on it. They know you could probably kick ass, but they’re afraid of possibly losing you. Kori is totally on your side with everything, but she warns you to be careful and not throw yourself in harms way. 
  • Meeting the parents is a huge, awkward ordeal. Kori doesn’t have parents really close by, but she’d eventually like you to meet Blackfire. 
  • Roy doesn’t want you to meet Oliver (Green Arrow), at first, still hurt by the past. You convince him otherwise, though, and Oliver is a bit touched that you’d want to see him. Although, it ends in you assuring Oli that if he puts Roy out in the cold again, you will have something to say about it. 
  • Jason is, surprisingly, pretty open to you meeting Bruce. He’s hesitant at first, not sure what Bruce or you would think. It’s a pretty awkward family dinner, considering his brothers kept asking some pretty prying questions. 
  • “Do you all sleep in one bed?”
  • “Have you killed anyone?”
  • “Have you seen Jason kill anyone?”
  • “How likely are you to dump him for me?”
  • “Dick, stop being a dick.”
  • Kori was actually the first to ever initiate a sexual encounter, never having touched a human woman’s body before. It got pretty intense, with you teaching her about your body and vice versa. The second time it happened, Roy walked in and was super into watching this go down. 
  • Fourways are a real work with all of you. Most of the times it’s just switching people off during the event. Every now and then you’ll partake in an act that involves all four of you, but that doesn’t happen super often. 
  • Jason loves having you sit on his face and then having someone else ride him. 
  • Roy is totally into hair-pulling. I mean, how can you not with his beautiful hair? 
  • Kori personally likes scissoring and using toys, fascinated by how your body reacts to each thing. 
  • Even outside the bedroom, Roy can get a bit handsy, but that’s just him. He teases you about wearing his hats all the time. 
  • Jason will scold you for wearing his leather jacket, but he can’t resist you when you do. 
  • Kori loves sharing clothes and having another girl around. It’s all pretty loving and there’s a lot of joking around. 
  • It’s amazing if anyone can get Roy to shut his mouth. 
  • You better be up for random tropical vacations because those three have an alien space ship for transportation.

This is my first time submitting but hi there I’m Shalise ( @tired-insomniac )and that beautiful girl next to me in all the photos is Kaylee ( @mimosaseveryday ). I wanted to submit because I wanted to share our story and why it’s so important to me.
We met on tumblr which is funny because my ex before her is the one who told me to get a tumblr (and little did I know I would eventually find the love of my life.) but she followed me back in December of 2016 and of course I saw how beautiful she was and I immediately followed her back. No less than a few minutes later she messaged me and we haven’t stopped talking ever since 😌. But the reason this is so important is because before we met on tumblr I had reached a very low point in my life and it had gotten so bad my family and friends made me get professional help for what I was going through.. I had just gotten out of a relationship that I wasn’t happy in and it was beginning to become toxic for both of us. I had just lost my two cats and I had to give them away. I was doing really bad in school and in sport. I was detached from my family and I didn’t really have close friends. I felt alone and it was draining me emotionally. I got to a point in my life where I was done trying to keep up the fake smile and the fake life where I was trying to make everyone else happy but myself. I was ready to give it all up.. but on the 12th of December that all changed. I had no idea that my life would take a 180 turn. Everyday we would message each other and just talk to each other. It wasn’t ever intimate or anything more than friends at that time but she was someone I knew I could go to everyday and I could talk about anything with her without feeling I couldn’t be myself. I felt so good inside, it was strange because although I had never met her I had this feeling that she was someone I needed to keep around. I had an overwhelming feeling to make sure I never lost this or lost the friendship we had built up even though it was virtual. I realized that the strange but good feeling I had was a form of love. I cared for her in a way that I couldn’t explain but it was like I wanted to keep her safe and made sure she was okay. I felt the need to always keep her close to my heart and during that time she was always on my mind. I would catch myself thinking about her and imagining what it would be like to have her in my life. Like how much more intense this feeling would burn if we could physically see each other and just feel each other’s presence…

Kaylee didn’t know it at the time but she saved my life. The simple knowledge of knowing that someone who didn’t even know me was there for me everyday and made sure that I was going to be okay without even knowing the effect she had on me. She brought me out of a dark place that no one else could get me out of, not even myself. I was relieved and I felt like I was a better person the more we talked and got to know each other. I was falling for her everyday. And I didn’t want to stop. We finally built up the courage to meet in real life and I can honestly say that the moment I saw her standing outside under a tree outside of my apartment I knew it was her. It was going to be her and I. We were gonna take on the world, together. She struck something so deep in my heart that made me realize that everyone before her was a mistake or a lesson that needed to be learned before I could be the best person for her. Ever since then we have been inseparable.

I finally asked her to be my girlfriend on July 7th which is the best date ever because it’s 7/7/17! She said yes and I have been the happiest in my entire life! I wanted to submit this because I want people to see that there is light at the end of the tunnel and even when your life feels like it’s in a dark hole or you feel like you can’t get out just know it gets better and you will get better! Someone is out there and they will love you for exactly who you are and they will make you feel like you can take over the world!

I love you Kaylee and I can’t wait to see where life takes us from here 🖤💚

Traiterous Heart, pt. 2

Thank you for all your feedback! :) I’m so glad you liked it. 

I almost died when I realized I used the WRONG FUCKING NAME the whole time. Omg. Apologies. Idk why but I think I just got it wrong once in the beginning and then my brain was like ‘yep, that’s right, that’s his name, yes’

I’m embarrassed. 

But hey xD enjoy part 2, this time with the correct name! Yay! 

There is a lot of crying, because, hey, coming out is emotional af. So be warned. Also, tw: mild homophobia.

Sherwin can’t believe that he gets to stare at Jonathan without having to be ashamed now. And he can’t believe Jonathan, sometimes, catches him when he turns around in class, and his whole face lights up when he smiles at Sherwin and it’s beautiful.

Sherwin blushes and smiles back and then Jonathan blushes too and Tildy just sits next to Sherwin and giggles.

As nice as it is to know Jonathan likes him back, and as nice as it is when Jonathan hugs him in the morning before school and that they sometimes hold hands when noone sees, it’s still not easy.

Long & Lost (Prompto X Reader)

Title: Long & Lost

Character(s): Prompto Argentum, Gladiolus Amicitia, Ignis Scientia, Iris Amicitia, Talcott Hester, Cor Leonis (mentioned), Noctis Lucis Caelum (mentioned), Lunafreya Nox Fleuret (mentioned), Umbra (mentioned), Pryna (mentioned), You

Chapter Number/One Shot: One Shot (as always, if a request comes in, there could be a follow-up)

Genre: Angst, Fluff

Summary: When Insomnia fell, you and Prompto lost sight of each other. Both of you kept looking, but now, five years after Noctis’ disappearance, you’re met with the opportunity to find Prompto faster than you thought you would.

Warnings: None

Word Count: 2738 words

Author’s Note: I’ve started playing FFXV again and I just… I love my boy Prompto… Also, I just found out Gladio has a girlfriend apparently and there’s a little tiny reference to that in here, so look out for that, mhhh mhh. I’m a little mad at SE for making me suffer like this but ok (read the trivia section on Gladio’s wiki page…………………..or don’t)… I’m sad he didn’t get to tell the others :(((

-

Prompto Argentum has no one — at least that’s what he thought. No real parents, no friends, no nothing. But then he befriended Noctis, and with Noctis came Gladio and Ignis. And with them came the whole of the Kingsglaive, save for a select few whom Prompto was not friends with. He even came to become friends with Lunafreya, Noctis’ fiancée, bonding over her dogs Umbra and Pryna. And then there was you.

You were different. Prompto didn’t like it when others called you his friend, if only because he wanted to be more than that. He didn’t like it when his best friends shot you sideways glances, giving him smug looks. Or when they wiggled their eyebrows at him behind your back because they knew of his crush.

A crush — that’s all it was. At least, he wished it were that way.

When Insomnia fell, he was devastated. Not because the city he’d learned to call home was now under Imperial rule, but because he had no idea whether you were safe or not. Neither did you know that Prompto was safe with Noctis.

It was always the same — missing each other by just a hair, never actually meeting. Your phone had gotten lost amidst the fighting in Insomnia, and you knew no one who had Prompto’s phone number, besides Noctis, who’d gone missing years ago at that point, and Ignis and Gladio, who just as unreachable to you as Prompto was. 

Now, the Starscourge was upon Eos and finding Prompto seemed impossible. Finding anyone in the eternal darkness was impossible. There were only the people with whom you’d been when the darkness had set in — no one dared stray far from the places they’d sought asylum at. The daemons were too dangerous, even the most skilled hunters often failed to keep them at bay.

However, there were people crazy enough to still settle on finding and killing these beasts for a bounty — hunters. Most resided in Hammerhead, former car repair shop and gas station turned hot spot for hunting business.

You were just kilometres away in Lestallum, where you were forced to live because fighting was not much of an option for you. There was plenty of food and drink and enough people to get around, but it wasn’t Insomnia. It was just a city shrouded in darkness like the rest of the world. The artificial light, provided by the meteor’s power plant, did help but in the end, it wasn’t real.

One fateful day though, a young man named Talcott, coming from Hammerhead, passed by the city, bringing food rations and other necessities, brought along someone else. Someone you just so happened to know. The problem was he couldn’t see you because he was now blind.

Maybe your chances of finding Prompto weren’t that bad after all. Ignis was in the passenger seat of the truck, listening as Talcott spoke to some of the townspeople. Yet, he wasn’t making an effort to get out. You had to take matters into your own hands, it seemed.

“Sorry,” you interrupted Talcott’s current conversation, “Could you- would you mind if I spoke to Ignis for a second. I- I haven’t seen him in years. Frankly, I didn’t even know whether he was still alive or not and I- I just hope he might help me find a person I’ve been looking for since… well, since before the darkness came.” You’d peaked the young man’s interest. He nodded, his head turning towards the truck. “Ignis! There’s someone here who wants to see you. She says she knows you.”

Ignis didn’t make you wait for long. Soon enough you were sitting at a booth inside a diner with him. His eyes were hidden behind green-tinted sunglasses. There was a scar that was visible even with the glasses covering a great portion of his face.

“You wanted to talk?” he inquired and it almost seemed like he was looking you in the eyes.

“Ignis- I- It’s me, (Y/N). I didn’t know you were still alive. I thought… all of you’d disappeared along with Noctis.”

“Yes, well, I may not be able to see anything anymore, but I am very much alive,” he half-joked, resting his back against the couch-like booth bench.

“How- how did that happen to you?” you asked, almost afraid of the answer.

“It’s been a long time since that happened. I’d rather not tell you the details, but Noctis was still around back then.” His gaze fell to the table.

“Do you… know where the others are?”

“You mean if they’re still alive? Yes, they are. We keep in contact, in case Noctis should ever return.”

“Do you think he will?”

“I know it,” he declared and silence fell between the two of you. “That isn’t what you really wanted to talk to me about, though, is it?” Ignis questioned, a grin ghosting his face. He knew exactly what you wanted him to tell you.

“Do you know where he is? Is he well?” you breathed, the words getting stuck in your mouth.

Ignis chuckled. “Prompto’s alive and well. A little tattered by the darkness and all the daemons maybe, but otherwise he’s good.” You let out the breath you’d been holding. “He’s in Hammerhead, hunting. Like the rest of us are.” Ignis paused to think for a moment. “If you’d like… I’m sure Talcott wouldn’t mind one more passenger in the truck.”

Your breath hitched. You’d see Prompto again.

“Thank you, Ignis,” you almost cried, hugging him across the table. His reaction was reserved, typical Ignis.

 ***

As you neared Hammerhead, you could feel your palms becoming sweaty. After all these years, this was it. As simple as that you had found him. Well, not yet anyway, but you knew he frequented this place.

Ignis left you to fend for yourself while he went with Talcott to report to Cid.  So now you were alone and you honestly had no idea what you were supposed to do with yourself. You decided it was best to look for a place to stay first. Heading over to the diner, which had a vacancy, you wondered when you would see Prompto. Where was he staying? What was he doing?

The man that worked in the diner slash motel, whose name you learned to be Takka, generously offered you one of the rooms above it at a lower price than usual, since you weren’t one of the hunters looking for work. “Nice to see a fresh face around here,” he remarked, a shy smile rushing over his visage. The years had eaten away at the man’s face – the shadows underneath his eyes probably courtesy of the long night.

You sat down in one of the many empty booths, rethinking your strategy. Finding Prompto would be solely based on luck. It would be a waiting game, hoping that maybe one day he’d come back from a hunt to collect his bounty and run into you by chance.

Suddenly, your train of thought was interrupted when you noticed a huge shadow looming over you. Looking up from the table, you almost didn’t believe your eyes.

“G-Gladio?!” you squeaked, shock widening your eyes. A warm smile spread on the man’s face as you jumped up and hugged him – he still felt more like just a mass of rock-hard muscle rather than an actual human being. “Let me look at you,” he demanded, placing his enormous hands on your small shoulders. Your eyes had now lit up in excitement. Gladiolus had been like a brother to you before he and the others left Insomnia for Altissia. Your inability to track down Iris in Lestallum just made everything worse once the Starscourge started showing its full effect. It was like all ties to your former life had been cut.

“What have you been up to these past few years? Where’ve you been?” Gladio asked with a sense of urgency, motioning for you to sit down in the booth with him. He barely fit between the table and the bench.

“I was- I was in Lestallum. I tried looking for you guys after the Starscourge set in, but… I lost my phone when Insomnia fell. I tried finding Iris in Lestallum, but- it was like everyone had suddenly… vanished. There was no way for me to find anyone outside of the city. And then, just today Talcott came with supplies… and Ignis was there. He said I’d find you and Prompto here… and I just-“ Gladio interrupted you, saying, “That’s… I’m sorry we didn’t look harder for you. Prompto’s been turning each and every stone around looking for you ever since we heard the news about Insomnia all those years ago. Poor guy kept trying to call you for months on end. And to think you were right in front of our noses, holed up in Lestallum with no way out… Iris… she went to Lestallum just like you did but when Jared was killed and Talcott was all alone… everything changed. She moved up to Cape Caem and when the Starscourge set in… she went to become a hunter under the Marshal’s training.”

That explained a lot. Why there was no one you knew in Lestallum. Where everyone had gone.

Gladio sighed. You furrowed your eyebrows, looking at him with a questioning gaze. “Prompto’s currently on a hunt and I doubt he’ll come back soon. Do you want me to message him?”

You bit your lip, thinking. “No, I- Can I call him?” you decided, the question hanging in the air for a while. “Sure,” Gladio approved, handing you his phone with Prompto’s contact info already open. You took the phone into your sweaty hands. “I’ll be just outside if you need me,” Gladio affirmed you, giving you an encouraging look.

Without a second thought, you pressed dial on the phone. It beeped exactly three times before Prompto picked up.

“Incredibly bad timing, Gladio!” he shouted over the phone. His voice was muffled and there were undeniably daemon sounds in the back. You heard a few shots go off, the sound loud and painful through the phone. More shots followed, then silence. “Gladio? You still there?” he asked, breathing heavily.

“I’m hanging up, Gladio,” he threatened after you hadn’t said anything for a while. “I can hear you breathe, Gladio. This is really not the time for a prank. There’s daemons everywhere out here.” His voice sounded urgent. Yet, you couldn’t bring yourself to say anything. “That’s it, I’m hanging up now. Bye,” he told you, still thinking you were Gladiolus. “No, wait. Don’t hang up, Prompto,” you finally declared, making it known to him that you were in fact, not Gladio.

“Who… who is this?” You almost stopped breathing. “Prompto, it’s- it’s me. It’s (Y/N). I-“

“Wow,” Prompto sighed, his voice rising a few octaves. “I- You- W-Where are you?”

“Hammerhead. In the diner,” you responded, your breath still taken away. There was a bit of rustling on the other end of the line but soon Prompto responded, “It’ll take a few hours for me to get back… Wait for me?” “Always,” you whispered in response.

As soon as that, the call had ended. Your hand sank to your thighs, the phone resting there, Prompto’s contact info open once again. It would be just hours until you saw him again. Hours.

Slowly, you rose from your seat and, as if in a trance, waddled outside the diner to Gladio. His head turned to you, long hair brushing his shoulders. He raised his eyebrows at you, asking what Prompto had said. “He’s coming back. Gladio, he’s coming back,” you repeated over and over again while sitting down on the ground almost in slow motion. Happiness was spreading all throughout your body. It was like a weight you didn’t even know was there had been lifted from your shoulders.

Gladio stayed with you for those hours. The wait seemed like it was longer than all the years you’d waited before combined – it was torture. He tried distracting you, telling you stories of what’d happened in the past few years, but somehow it made it worse.

It must’ve been morning when Gladio finally left, saying he needed to check on his sister’s whereabouts. Though, of course, time was more of a concept in the darkness than an actual thing. The sun didn’t rise, nor did it set, so a morning was just something on the clock, not something you could identify by looking at the sky. You spent another hour alone in front of the diner, looking at the empty road before you finally glimpsed a figure approaching the gas station.

He was running, no, sprinting towards it. Immediately, you knew it was Prompto.

There was nothing holding you back anymore. You followed his example and jumped up from your place in front of the diner, running in his direction. He met you halfway, in front of the caravan, your bodies colliding in a heartfelt embrace. Nothing and no one could keep you apart now.

It wasn’t long before the two of you started crying, both shaking violently in each other’s arms. Prompto kept patting your hair, as you held onto him like your life depended on it. His head found its place in the crook of your neck, murmuring ‘I missed you’s and ‘I’m so sorry’s. The space in between was filled with your heavy breathing and sniffling, trying to keep the tears at bay. You’d waited years for this moment. All the pent-up emotions were being released at once.

Prompto’s hands were on your back, pressing your body flush against his, while your hands tangled in his hair, savouring the feel of every passing moment. You kept releasing shaky breaths, focussing on nothing but Prompto’s body against yours. His familiar scent, his soft hair, his muscly arms and strong fingers pressing against your back, his irregular breaths on your neck – all of it, real.

It felt like hours before his grip on you loosened, both of you pulling back. You must’ve looked horrible, tear-stained and flushed and shaking before him, but if you did then he did not care. He didn’t look much different than you anyway – his nose runny, blond hair ruffled and his cheeks red, almost hiding his freckles.

Silence fell between you, both not knowing what to say. With a leap of faith, Prompto proclaimed, “I love you. I- I always ha-“ But he didn’t need to finish the sentence. You were nodding furiously, tears already gleaming in your eyes again. His mouth hung open, shocked and surprised. Then, another leap of faith, he grabbed both sides of your face, cheeks still wet with tears, and kissed you.

It was sloppy and desperate and unexpected, yet at the same time, you wouldn’t have wanted it to be different. It was perfect in its own way. When you pulled away, Prompto rested his forehead against yours, breathing hot air onto your face. It was like time had stopped for the two of you.

Until, suddenly, somebody cleared their throat, causing you and Prompto to jump in shock and bump your heads against each other. A painful reminder that time had in fact, not stopped. Gladio and Iris, who were standing in front of you, had pulled you back into reality. A shy smile adorned Iris’ face, her hair now almost as long as her brother’s and pulled up in a similar style. You recognised her immediately, though she didn’t have the same carefree aura about her anymore. She looked much more grown-up, opting for a black hunter’s attire instead of the skirts and short sleeves you were used to seeing on her. Gladio’s eyebrows were raised, a smirk dancing across his features, as he said, “You two seem to have caught up pretty fast.”

You were rubbing your foreheads, quietly smiling at each other. Gladio sighed. “I’m just glad at least someone gets to be happy in this eternal darkness.” Iris turned to her brother, a knowing look on her face.

Prompto perked up again very quickly, regaining his composure. “I don’t plan on letting (Y/N) out of my sight ever again.” You smiled the most genuine smile you had smiled in years.

Prompto. Your Prompto.

Taking his hand, you remarked, “This time, I won’t let you go so easily.” The look on Prompto’s face could have lit up the whole world, even now when it was shrouded in darkness.

You smiled and you were happy – you were home.

anonymous asked:

I was wondering if you could rec me some fics where they are obviously in love and are best friends but they don't realise it. It'd be amazing thanks love xx

Hello! Enjoy:

baby, hold on to my heart by tightropeofhope

Summary: Here was the dilemma: Louis and Harry were out with their mates window shopping because there was nothing else to do and Louis brought an antique ring, hoping to pawn it off to get some quick cash. It was a small, old thing, all rusted and gold, but it had its charm. The owner didn’t take it because of the minuscule crack down the middle of the jewel, so Louis just shrugged and handed it to Harry without a thought.

Louis gives Harry a ring as a joke, but Harry starts wearing the ring everywhere he goes.

Inconceivable by alivingfire:

Summary: Sometimes, Harry thinks, there’s something there. The spark in his belly isn’t just happening to him, surely. Surely Louis feels that rush too, that blossoming heat in his blood when their fingers brush.

But no. No, Louis treats Harry like a best friend—and it’s an amazing thing, so wonderful, Harry wouldn’t trade his friendship with Louis for anything—and there’s no room for anything else. Not between them.

But Louis adores Niall. It’s clear, obvious in their comfort together. Harry and Louis still have something that keeps them from that, something making things more loaded with possibility, more intense. Like magnets with the same pole, an invisible force pushing them back—maybe that’s Harry’s crush, a barrier keeping them apart. Louis and Niall’s friendship is easy, whatever is between Louis and Harry is something else. Weighted.

Which is fine. It’s good. Niall clearly loves Louis back, so it’s great.

And Harry can just keep lying to himself for the rest of eternity.

Louis and Barbara Tomlinson are twin brother and sister. Harry’s in love with Louis, Niall’s in love with Barbara, and they both go by Tommo. It gets a little confusing.

One Day You’ll Say These Words by Anonymous:

Summary: Growing up together in Yorkshire has led to a lifelong friendship between Louis Tomlinson, the future Marquess of Rotherham, and Harry Styles, the heir to a viscount. When Harry suddenly inherits his uncle’s title and estate much earlier than expected, Louis must watch his friend struggle under the weight of these new responsibilities, including searching for a wife with a dowry large enough to save his estate. However, sitting idly by as Harry looks for a bride brings some unexpected feelings to the surface.

under me, you by hazzafrazza (colberry):

Summary: You Won’t Believe Who Was Spotted Leaving Harry Styles’ Primrose Hill Pad!

If Harry was being completely honest, it probably wasn’t the best idea to be a world-renowned popstar and an infamous vigilante.

(Especially when all the comic books said never reveal your secret identity to keep your loved ones safe – which was all well and good, until Louis.)

Or: Harry wants a lot of things – fame, glory, Louis – but that last one is particularly hard to get when everyone thinks you’re dating your secret superhero alter-ego and suddenly you’ve become your own worst cockblock.

if it kills me by you_explode:

Summary: Harry and Louis have worked together in a difficult office environment for six years. They’re best friends; Louis is the bright spot of all of Harry’s days. But Louis is in love with Harry, and Harry’s engaged to someone else. And that’s only the beginning.

The Office AU. More or less follows the first five seasons. A lot of pining and misunderstanding the depth of feelings and rejection and angst, until there isn’t.

On the Cover of the Rollin’ Stone by alivingfire:

Summary: Five days, three shows. Harry, Louis, Liam, and Niall have been best friends forever, basically, but they’ve only been a band for six months and they’re already going on tour.

Well. Liam says they can’t call it a tour because all the shows are within an hour of home and they could pretty easily just drive back and forth but no, Liam is wrong, because they were booked in hotel rooms by their manager (Gemma) and they have a stylist (Lottie) and they’ve even been announced on the venue websites and this is the greatest start in the history of rock n’ roll.

Harry, Louis, Liam, and Niall are in a punk band and Louis can’t stop writing love songs about Harry, even when Harry has his eye on someone else.

Now you know me (for your eyes only) by nadinecestmoi:

Summary: au where harry and louis are solo artists and they’re not exactly friends per se but they’re friendly, know each other from industry parties and things like that and there’s always been this weird unspoken sexual tension between them and louis’ always kinda confused bc isn’t harry the biggest ladies’ man in the industry?? and one day harry asks louis to collab with him and of course louis says yes even tho he’s kinda surprised and harry plays the song for him and louis is completely blown away by how beautiful it is and it’s a love song and he’s like damn whoever this is about is lucky as fuck bc it’s clearly written from personal experience so they spend all this time together recording and it’s super bittersweet bc they click right away and it takes louis about three seconds to realize he has a huge fucking crush on harry but on the other hand harry clearly had someone in mind when he wrote the song so the last day of recording comes and louis’ like “thanks for having me on the song” and harry just shrugs and is like “well it just seemed fitting bc the song is about you”

Hiding Place by alivingfire:

Summary: Louis never wanted a soulmate, didn’t really care for the whole Bonding thing at all, really. Enter Harry Styles, who’s wanted to be Bonded for as long as he could remember. With one fateful meeting in an X Factor bathroom, Louis gets a dagger on his arm and the realization that just because Harry is his soulmate doesn’t mean it’s mutual.

From the X Factor house to Madison Square Garden, from the Fountain Studios stage to stadiums across the world, Louis has to learn to love without losing himself completely, because someday his best friend will Bond to someone and replace Louis as the center of his universe. Meanwhile, Harry begins to think that maybe fate doesn’t actually know what it’s doing after all, because his other half has clearly been right in front of him the whole time. All he has to do now is convince Louis to give them a chance.

Or, the canon compliant Harry and Louis love story from the very beginning, where the only difference is that the love between them is literally written on their skin, and there’s only so much they can hide.

(Sounds Like You) When I Close My Eyes by colourexplosion, dramaturgicallycorrect:

Summary: a non-au where harry and louis never got together, but both of them wanted to. they get it right eventually.

DJ Got the Floor to Shake by fauvistfly:

Summary: As requested by Calmlikeyou, an AU in which Harry and Louis are interns at Radio 1. Louis is assigned to Greg, and Harry is assigned to Nick. They have a friendly, competitive relationship that also happens to be charged with sexual tension. Of course Greg and Nick have to make a bet about where these two will be caught in a compromising position because two interns with this much chemistry? It’s inevitable.

“Stupid, flirty, silly boys being silly - of course they fall in love, of course they suck at actually communicating that to each other with words”–hopefully this fic fulfills the overall sense of the prompt if not the exact details.
