there were others but i wasn't *that* bored



Alec snapped out of his thoughts as the teacher called his name. Panicking Alec skimmed the page in front of him, looking for an answer. Then he realized he didn’t even know what the question was.

“I…uh” Seeing his panic Magnus who sat besides him whispered the answer under his breath loud enough for Alec to hear.

“217!” Alec yelled the answer as Magnus gave him a glare.

“Yes, Mr. Lightwood you don’t have to yell it.” The teacher glared at Alec while Magnus shot him a ‘wtf’ look.

Cowering, Alec mumbled a sorry as he looked down at his table.

Sighing besides him Magnus shook his head at his classmate’s stupidity.

Drawing the last lines on his drawing, Alec scratched his head as he looked the drawing over. It didn’t look quite right.

A poke in his side caught Alec’s attention. Meeting Magnus’ eyes he realized that once again he had failed at paying attention.

Looking between the teacher who had crossed her arms waiting annoyed for Alec to answer to Magnus who desperately tried to point at the book in front of him without attracting the teachers attention.

The problem was that he hadn’t even opened his book.


“Mr. Bane what do you think you are doing?” Stopping wide eyed, Magnus met the teacher’s angry gaze as he realized they had been caught.

“Detention! Both of you.” Both of the boys dropped their heads on the table groaning simultaneously.

Great. Just great. Alec thought while meeting Magnus’ eyes. At least they were together

Hi! If you've got time, do you have any advice for a new puppy that bites at everything and won't let go? We're working on diverting the biting at clothes/shoes/fingers/etc. to her toys, but I wasn't sure if there were any other suggestions you might have. Thanks so much!

Note- with a lot of puppies the biting will stop on its own as they stop teething, and as long as you don’t reinforce the biting by making it more boring to bite clothes/fingers/shoes and much more fun to bite toys, chews, bones etc. If your puppy makes the choice to bite a toy you should give them lots of fuss and attention! Often we don’t praise our dogs for appropriate biting and chewing enough, and only start giving them attention when they are biting or running off with something we don’t want them to have. Make it more rewarding to bite the things you want them to bite. If she isn’t so interested in her toys, try acting like it’s the best thing ever and playing by yourself, teasing your puppy. You could also soak a rope in bone broth/chicken broth and freeze. LOTS of fuss for interest in the toys! And try your best to make biting you really boring. Turn your back, ignore completely, leave the room if needed.

Redirection to appropriate things to bite is good, then lots of praise and attention for biting those things! You can also introduce a time out as punishment for hard biting if it’s becoming a bigger problem. Because of the huge latency between the behaviour (biting hard) and the consequence (time out) it is best to introduce something called a conditioned punisher. Just like the click means the +R is on its way, the conditioned punisher means the -P is on its way. So you would say “too bad” during the biting and implement the time out straight away. You would need to be consistent with this though! Time outs require legwork so it is easy to slack, but this needs to happen every time in order for puppy to learn.

Another problem you can encounter when punishing biting is the criteria of “how hard is too hard” being something subject to change based on the person, time, etc. This is why you should use a warning cue BEFORE the conditioned punisher, to give the puppy a chance to control their biting and avoid the time out. So the order of events should go: biting -> warning cue; “ouch, too hard” -> IF puppy then reigns in -> praise/ IF puppy keeps biting -> conditioned punisher; “too bad” -> time out. The cues I am using as examples aren’t the ones you have to use, but whatever you choose, be consistent. That’s the most important thing.

Blaze was having a nightmare again. He continually whimpered and writhed from a pain that wasn't there and whenever he would try to roll onto his back he would give a silent cry of pain. “p-plea... please sto..” he said, but he couldn't finish his words. He burrowed further into the covered and every time he felt he was near pip he would shrink away, fearing it may be alpha to punish him again. He wasn't well. ~blaze ((what? I is kinda bored.))

He grimaced as he noticed the other wouldnt let him touch him, a d surrounded him with his magic before porting them outside of a post pacifist timeline’s hospital. It was late and no non-staff were around as he kept Blaze in the bubble shield until he woke. @fallouttale-peeps

Happy 52nd birthday, gorgeous!

52 years ago today, W. Axl Rose was born. (6th February, 1962.)

He is the most important person in my life, he’s indescribably beautiful - inside and out - and he always has been, he still is & he always will be. He is the strongest and bravest man I know of, and I’m so damn proud of him. He has been through so much in his 52 years - more than most people do in a lifetime. He has been to hell and back, and he has pulled through and came out stronger each and every time.

I know that he has no idea I exist and he probably never will, but no one on earth has ever had the impact on me that he has. To me, he’s not just another celebrity. He’s not just the frontman of my favorite band, my favourite musician, my favourite songwriter or my favourite singer… Most importantly, he’s my favourite person, and I love everything about him, from his head to his feet - and everything in between.

Most people have a completely warped and negative view on him, but he’s genuinely the complete opposite. A lot of people see him as this intimidating guy, when in reality he’s the sweetest guy around. As tough as he is on the outside, he’s even sweeter on the inside. He’s not just incredibly physically beautiful, he’s just as beautiful on the inside too. In my eyes, he is genuinely perfect, I wouldn’t change a thing about him for the world.

I love him beyond description, and nobody comes close in comparison. The only thing I want in life is for him to be happy, and I hope he gets everything he truly deserves in life. He means more to me than anything else, and my life wouldn’t be the same if he was never a part of it.

I hope he has an absolutely wonderful day today, too.

-I could write a whole lot more, but I don’t want to end up writing a book and boring you all.-

I love you so much, Axl! Happy birthday!!

How my Convert-Cousins-to-Reylo Plan worked out over the summer...
  • Me to Cousin 1: *after seeing her comments on my Reylo art* You ship it, right?
  • Cousin 1: Ship it like Fedex!
  • Me: High five!
  • ---
  • Me to Cousin 2: Did you watch the latest Star Wars?
  • Cousin 2: The Force Awakens? Yes! I loved it!
  • Me: What do you think of Kylo Ren?
  • Cousin 2: He's a very conflicted character and a very interesting villain! I think he should be with Rey but aren't they related? I researched all about the whole thing, on Jaina Solo, Jacen Solo(she watched all the movies apparently and did a shit ton of research about the now old canon)
  • Me: *goes on a long talk about how Rey is not a Skywalker or a Solo and all the other metas and theories, and how the old canon is no longer*
  • Cousin 2: OMG I'm in! They're perfect together! OMG WHY IS 2017 SO FAR AWAY???
  • Cousin 1 & 2 end up fangirling together
  • --
  • Me to Cousin 3: *tricky coz wasn't sure if she was nerd enough for it* Hey, did you watch the latest Star Wars?
  • Cousin 3: Yeah.
  • Me: What about the previous movies?
  • Cousin 3: Yeah, watched it all, though I thought the prequels were boring.
  • Me: What about the new one?
  • Cousin 3: Oh, it's great! I love Rey. But I just didn't feel like she's going to end up with Finn you know? I's too obvious I guess.
  • Me: Uhm....*treads carefully* What do you think about her and Kylo Ren?
  • Cousin 3: What?! Ew! He's ugly!
  • Me: *opens phone, goes through gallery, shows her nummy yummy photos of Adam Driver*
  • Cousin 3: *gapes and grabs my phone* Why is he not ugly here?!
  • Me: He's a gorgeous man, but he is an acquired taste. Look at the rest of the photos, you'll see what I mean.
  • Cousin 3: But aren't Kylo Ren and Rey related?
  • Me: *goes on the same strategy I did for Cousin 2*
  • Cousin 3: OMG they're perfect! She can inspire him to redeem himself! I have to watch the movie again!
  • Me to myself: *my work here is done*

(noldobroideress, scars meme) Míriel paused at the door of the little bedroom, startled. She hadn't expected to see the Maia only partly-dressed, and paused, frowning. The number of scars he bore were far more than she'd guessed even from the days of treating him... but it probably wasn't polite to comment. "I'm sorry. I didn't mean to intrude."

He froze as she stepped in, one hand rendered motionless mid-inspection of the nearly healed gash on his other arm.  The preternatural stillness endured for the space of several heartbeats before he turned from the window to offer her a lifeless smile.

“It’s all right.”  The sinews of his neck clenched and rolled as he swallowed a knot of anxiety; old habits died hard.  "What needs doing?“
