Beauty and the Beast Post-Curse headcanons Part 2

So after posting my first installment of post-curse headcanons I realized that I forgot a few characters. Given the positive response to the first post (and a few sleepless hours last night) I have come up with more. I hope you enjoy them.

Maurice
-After the curse is broken, Chip makes a point of apologizing to Maurice for scaring him during his first visit to the castle. Maurice assures Chip that it wasn’t his fault and asks him to give him a tour of the castle. Chip happily agrees and proceeds to lead Maurice on a uniquely childlike tour. Much less (accurate) history of the castle. Way more hide and seek tips. “And what about this portrait here?” “That’s Monsieur Funny hat. I don’t know what his actual name is…but he has a really big funny hat. These curtains make a good hide and seek spot too. But make sure your feet are covered–Hey wanna see the cubboard I used to sleep in?!” Maurice called it the best tour he had ever had.
- Once Belle and Adam become engaged, Maurice offers to paint an engagement portrait of the happy couple. But dispite their best efforts, they have a very hard time working a long formal portrait sitting into their schedules. The sketches from their early attempts all felt a bit stiff. Then one evening Maurice decides to discreetly pull out his easel in the library while Belle and Adam sat curled up together reading, comfortably in their own element, aware only of their books and each other. This stealth portrait allowed Maurice to capture the tender look in Adam’s eyes when he would look over at Belle (a look he attempted to control–and usually failed–when he knew his future father-in-law was looking) and a look of bliss Belle seemed to only have in moments like this. The portrait is so successful, Maurice continues to make these candid portraits for other residents of the castle, capturing their happiest moments to last forever.

Chapeau
- Chapeau is a man of few words. He prefers to quietly observe in social situations, welcome guests with a wordless smile and nod as a greeting, and to play his violin. That said, he knows everything there is to know about the goings on of the castle. Lumière can’t think of what to get Plumette for her birthday? Ask Chapeau. Chip can’t find a toy he misplaced. Ask Chapeau. His answers are brief, but nearly always the perfect solution.

Cadenza and Garderobe
-Cadenza and Garderobe decide they want to try to teach FrouFrou to sing. This proves to be a very loud and comical task. The rest of the castle is not nearly as tickled by FrouFrou’s performance as a vocalist, but it makes Cadenza and Garderobe so happy they all play along.
-Garderobe has been known to dispense unsolicited romantic advice to Plumette and Belle, some of which makes them blush and look for the nearest exit. However, most of her advice really is helpful.
-Cadenza also offers advice, but it is usually related to writing a song in some way or other. It can be hard to tell if he means metaphorically or literally.

Cogsworth
-Cogsworth has developed the uncanny ability of knowing the exact time of day without looking at a clock. Lumière finds this hilarious and tries to prompt him to give the time without him realizing it. Dispite his accuracy as to the particular minute, Cogsworth often forgets what day it is.
-Once Cogsworth hears of the way Clothilde (Mrs. Cogsworth) treated Belle in the village during the curse, he demands she apologize, which she does (perhaps a bit too profusely.) Their reunion is the rockiest of the castle residents, having been a less than stable relationship to begin with. Somehow Lumière gets roped into acting as a sort of couples councillor for them. He isn’t quite sure how. But ultimately he is willing to do just about anything to help his friend find happiness.

LeFou
-LeFou ends up being one of Belle’s most dedicated pupils when it comes to learning how to read and write. He uses his new skills to write a note to Stanley.

Belle and Adam
- Adam likes to turn little every day moments into opportunities to dance. Belle could be doing something as simple as sorting books in the library, only to be swept up in an impromptu waltz about the room. Once they have finished Adam helps her complete whatever task she was doing so that she doesn’t find his spontaneous dances too disruptive.
-He can’t get enough of hearing Belle say “I love you.” He goes completely weak in the knees every time. Every now and then he will ask her to say it “one more time” because he didn’t get to hear the very first time she said it.
- Adam is way more into wedding planning than Belle. Belle just wants a simple wedding, which means he has to reign himself in at times. His excitement can get the better of him. She said yes and he wants to shout it from the rooftops (and has.) He has learned Belle has a certain smile that she gives him when he starts to get an idea a bit too over the top. Ultimately Belle has the final say on everything, because her happiness is all he really wants. As long as she is his and he is hers, that is all that matters.

Agathe
- As news of the engagement spreads, Agathe decides to pay a visit to the castle to congratulate the happy couple. Adam is a nervous wreck the entire time she is there (calmed only by Belle standing protectively by his side and reassuringly telling him she loves him) but is a completely gracious host all the while. Seeing the lasting trauma her curse had on the people of the castle, Agathe bestows a spell of protection over the castle and its residents as a wedding present, providing them with health and prosperity for the rest of their days. As she departs she tells them she will leave them in peace, but will return in a few years time with another gift. As Adam attempts to thank her for her generosity she cuts him off by saying “No your highness. This gift will not be for you. It’s for the baby.” With a wink she leaves Adam and Belle standing speechless, as she leaves to ponder a proper gift for her future fairy godchild.

Hide and Seek


Tony wasn’t too sure how they managed to get on to the topic. 


Actually- scratch that- yes he was. It was Clint. All bad things in the world happened because of Clint. 

Probably.

Anyway- Clint had been talking about his years in the circus, and how they’d taught him all sorts of weird ways to contort your body for the extra showmanship. “Made for some pretty awesome games of hide and seek, though,” he’d said, nodding serenely to himself as he’d sipped from his coffee.

“I bet I’d still find you in under an hour,” Natasha had challenged, raising a daring eyebrow up at him before turning back to the morning paper.

Clint scoffed, turning to Steve, who was stood cooking eggs on the stove. “Cap, you can vouch for me here, right? I am the master at hide and seek. No one beats me at hide and seek.”

And Steve had laughed- a lovely throaty thing that made Tony smile just from hearing it. “Uhhh, I don’t know? It depends on a lot of variables. If it were in a park, maybe- but here? Tony would beat you hands-down. He knows every nook and cranny of this tower, you wouldn’t stand a chance.”


And then- here had come Tony’s fatal mistake of the day. Later, he’d pin it on lack of caffeine in his system and the early hour at which he was conscious- but really, he was just an idiot who’d forgotten how offended his teammates could (and did) get on his behalf.


“Actually, I’ve never played. Although I could still probably beat Barton.”

“Can I kiss where it hurts?” Maybe with baby dickie and batdad?

you caught me in my weakness IN MY WEAKNESS IN MY WEAKNESS

“Hey? Hey, Bruce?”

Waking up was more like a slow, clumsy swim to the surface - his head felt lined with lead, with how hard it was to pull off of the pillows. He blinked blearily, trying to focus the image in front of him.

“Hey, Bruce.” A hand came out - Bruce’s fist wrapped around the wrist in a crushing grip. Dick gasped.

Bruce dropped the hand like he’d been burned. “Hnnh. Dick?”

“That hurt, you cranky geezer,” Dick mumbled, rubbing at his wrist. It had hurt - Bruce had felt something pop. The familiar weight of guilt, it seemed, did not care how conscious the guilty was.

“Hnngh.” Bruce scooted over, wordlessly patting the bed beside him.

Dick hopped up, snatched the blanket, and pulled it around him. Bruce buried his face back into the pillow, ready to be dead to the world for at least four more hours. This was their ritual, every other night - Dick would have a nightmare, and he’d skitter down the hall, and Bruce would growl and roll over and that would be that. Any other night, Dick would bundle into the blankets, and once he fell asleep, he’d become something of a parasite - he would kick Bruce in the side a couple times, and then he’d wrap around Bruce’s arm like an endangered subspecies of spider monkey. 

Tonight, Dick curled up around his knees. Briefly, Bruce mourned his sleep schedule, and he elbowed Dick in the side. “What’s the problem.”

“Why’s there - why’s there gotta be a problem?”

There was a tremor in his voice. Bruce pulled himself up, and stared at Dick expectantly.

Dick’s eyes were impossibly owlish when they blinked up at him. Christ, he was shaking like a leaf.

Bruce sighed, and wrapped an arm around Dick’s thin shoulders - Dick took it as an opportunity to launch himself at Bruce, curling into him like a baby kangaroo. Bruce rubbed circles into his back, and tucked Dick’s dark curls under his chin. 

“I - I had a dream,” Dick whispered. “I had a dream, it’s the same dream, except y-you were the one falling and - and - and - “

“Shhh,” Bruce rumbled. “I’m here, you’re safe.”

Dick heaved a sob into Bruce’s neck, and Bruce rocked him. He’d done this before - he’d maybe even gotten good at it. It was in Dick’s nature to seek out contact, to seek out companionship, and as cruel and jaded as Bruce could be, he could never deny a grieving child that. He held Dick until the sobbing subsided into harsh breathing.

“Bruce,” Dick murmured. “Bruce, I - I don’t want to lose you.”

“You won’t.”

“Promise?”

“Promise.”

Bruce must have dozed off, because the next thing he remembered was Dick crawling off him, whining, “You drooled in my hair!”

Bruce scrubbed at his eyes. “Hmngh.”

Dick hit him in the shoulder. “Nasty.”

Bruce caught his elbow, and inspected his wrist. There’d be a ring of bruises -Bruce felt the burn of that, deep in his chest, and if it were possible, he’d gladly cut off his own hand just to see those bruises fade. “Does it hurt.”

“Ah, uh - maybe a little.”

Bruce pressed a kiss to the top of his wrist. “My mother used to do that.”

“Mine, too,” Dick said, and he snuggled into Bruce’s side. “Don’t drool into my hair this time, you old fart.”

Bruce ruffled his hair, and dropped back into the pillows.

25, 56, and 111 because I like breaking hearts

a/n: since this foster family thing is evidently an ongoing au series now, i’m going to be tagging both my general tag list and my foster family au tag list! if you’re in the general tag list and don’t want to be tagged continuously in this au, please let me know! (no hard feelings, i promise!) everything relating to this series will also be tagged “foster family au” so you can blacklist that if you want! thanks a bunch!!!

25. “One of them’s missing.” 56. “I don’t do hugs.” 111.“You can’t just hug me and think everything’s okay.”

warnings: swearing, insults, foster care; if you need absolutely anything else tagged please let me know!

“One of them’s missing,” Ms. Ann announces when she strides into the dining room. “Do you have any idea where he could be, Mr. Sanders?”

Patton’s head jumps up from where it’s been buried in one of his novels. “Missing? What do you mean?”

“Virgil isn’t with the other two, and I need to speak with him before I leave. Logan and Roman have searched their rooms, as well as Virgil’s, and told me that they have no idea where he could be. I was wondering if perhaps you knew.”

“Oh, dear.” Patton stands up, setting his book on his bed. “I told him to stay in the living room until you had spoken to him.”

Ms. Ann offers him a sympathetic smile. “Virgil isn’t the most obedient child, I’m afraid. He’s probably hiding somewhere. It’s what he did at most of the homes. Do you have any idea where a convenient hiding spot would be in your house?”

“I—well, goodness, I suppose there are a few places that we use when we’re playing hide-and-seek. Let me go see if I can find him for you.”

“That would be most appreciated.”

Patton slips out of the room and is immediately assaulted by Roman, who clings to his legs and says, “Papa, Papa, Verge’s ran away and now he’s hiding, d’you know where he is, d’you want me to help you find him, want me to help—”

“That’s alright, kiddo,” Patton says, crouching and ruffling Roman’s hair. “I think I can find him, but thank you for the offer—that was very kind of you.”

Roman beams at him, eyes sparkling. “Okay—but if you need any help, you’ll ask!”

“You betcha, bud. Go play with Logan for a little bit, okie-dokie? I’ll be right back.”

“‘kay!”

Once Roman has gone, Patton sets off in the direction of Virgil’s room. Despite what he told Ms. Ann, he doubts Virgil has used one of their hide-and-seek spots—if he had, Roman and Logan should’ve been able to find him. There is one spot, however, that Patton has a sneaking suspicion about.

Opening the door to Virgil’s room, Patton calls, “Hey, Virgil, you in here?”

Predictably, there’s no response. Patton lets himself into the room but leaves the door open behind him. There’s no reason to make Virgil feel any more trapped than he has to. He walks over the Virgil’s closet and opens it. That’s one of their hide-and-seek spots, and it’s empty. When he looks up, however—

“Ah-hah.” Patton smiles fondly at the two wide, nervous eyes that regard him from the darkness of the closet’s upper shelf. “Found you, buddy. How in the world did you get up there?”

“Climbed,” Virgil says, his voice brittle. “And I’m not coming down.”

Patton is impressed—Virgil’s barely nine years old and not tall by any means, and there aren’t many handholds in the closet that he could have scaled. (Patton may also be kinda sorta worried. What if Virgil had fallen climbing up? What if he fell when he tried to get down? But they can talk about that later, he supposes.) “Well, I don’t guess you have to, as long as you’re okay with Ms. Ann coming in here to talk with you.”

“No.” Virgil shrinks back—he’s already flat on his belly to fit on the shelf, and Patton doesn’t think he can make himself seem much smaller. “I’m not talking to her.”

“Why not?”

“She’s fucking stupid.”

Patton tsks. “Now, Virgil—”

“Don’t now, Virgil me,” Virgil spits. “She’s just going to take me back if I talk to her. You said you wouldn’t give me away but that doesn’t matter if she makes you.”

“And why would she make me, kiddo?”

“Hell if I know.”

Patton takes a deep breath and then stretches his hands up. “Okay. C’mere, kiddo, let me help you down from there and we can talk.”

Virgil scowls at him, and for a minute Patton thinks he’s going to argue—but then he sighs, and holds his arms out so Patton can pull him forward and off of the shelf. Carefully (he’s not going to tarnish what little trust Virgil gives him) Patton sets Virgil on the ground and immediately releases him.

“There we go.” Patton beams at him. “Great job, bucko, you—”

“What do I have to do?”

“Hm?”

“What do I have to do to stay here? Logan and Roman did it, right? So why I can’t I?”

“Oh, of course you can.” Patton thinks that his heart might be cracking, but he chokes it down—strong emotions spook Virgil. “You just have to be honest with Ms. Ann. Tell her what you like and don’t like about living here.”

“That’s what I’ve always done, and she’s always either taken me away or I’ve been sent away.” Virgil balls his hands into little fists and glowers at the ground. “So I just need to say good stuff, right? Or have I already ruined it by hiding like a sissy?”

“You haven’t ruined anything at all, and you shouldn’t lie. Ms. Ann’s job is to make sure you’re in a safe and healthy environment, so—”

“I am,” Virgil says, stomping one foot. “I am I am I am. You’re stupid but you’re nice and I wanna stay here.”

“Hey, easy there. C’mere for a sec. Can I hug you?”

“I told you, I don’t do hugs—and anyway, you can’t just hug me and think everything’s okay. It’s not!”

“I know it’s not, kiddo,” Patton says, and Virgil pauses—he’s still so confused when Patton agrees with him, when Patton agrees that maybe things aren’t okay all of the time. But they’re not, and Patton understands that, and even if he’s sure that one day they will be, maybe that’s not what Virgil needs to hear right now. “I know it’s pretty rough right now—I know it’s been pretty rough—and that’s fine. It’s okay if you’re stressed out or upset, you know?”

Virgil scowls at him. “Yeah, sure. You say that now.”

“And I’ll keep saying it. Right now we have to go talk to Ms. Ann, though. You think you can handle that? I promise I’ll do everything I can to keep you here, but you have to work with us.”

“Whatever.” Virgil huffs and crosses his arms, glowering at his sneakers. “Fine, yeah. I’ll go talk to her. If I get taken it’s your fault, though.”

“Well,” Patton says, trying not to wince because he simply can’t stand the thought of Virgil going back to the home because of something Patton did, “that’s certainly true.”

With that, Virgil takes a deep breath and slips out of his room, shoulders hunched and hands jammed into his pockets. Patton follows him out, and while Virgil certainly doesn’t respond to Ms. Ann with any warmth, he does talk to her.

And—thank god—he stays. Ms. Ann writes her report and shakes Patton’s hand and calls him back a few days later and Virgil—

Virgil stays.

(Y/t/h) your twitter handle

“Ohh my god” I sighed, as I read through Greg’s latest twitter rant. I had recently taken a liking to his ‘Onison’ and ‘Onision speaks’ channels after I discovered we shared some views on lgbt and youtube.

A couple of months after I started watching his channel, I found we had another mutual interest, my boyfriend Dan. Dan and I had been dating for over 3 years and his fans knew about it after we made an announcement, a month prior to Gregs rant.

Greg was never one to keep quiet about his feelings, there was always a daily video telling how he wanted change. He mostly talked about his celebrity crushes, Andy Biersack  daddy and Dan. Most of the phandom knew about Gregs admiration for Dan and often asked Dan about it in his live streams and social media.

It finally got to the point when Dan couldn’t stand it anymore.  He couldn’t ignore the questions and constant remarks about ‘Danision’. In one of his live streams Dan spoke out about Greg wanting attention, using him for fame and exploiting his fans.

This is what I was reading through. Greg, more commonly known as Onision, had taken to twitter once again to defend himself against the dark haired man and the phandom.

Dan was out with Phil so I decided to check what videos I had missed in the past week. I saw a new video from Greg titled 'publicity’. As soon as I read the title I knew it would focus on the recent events with Dan.

“Lets talk about publicity” the American man said, a slight anger in his voice “over the past month” he then proceeded to tell the story about Dan. Within 3 minutes the story was over, even though there was still over 5 minutes remaining.

Moments later I heard my name from the computer screen. My attention was drawn to a screenshot of Dan and I in the recent video we had filmed. The picture showed us kissing, while it was there Greg began talking about me.

“See this woman here, this is attention seeking. Dan Howell accused me of attention seeking after I mentioned him in some videos, yet here she is dating him” he then continued to talk about me having a small blog with just over 500 followers and how I was dating Dan to raise my profile.

I closed my laptop and took to twitter. I had not been on twitter since the video so of course I was expecting Greg to say something about me there too and I wasn’t wrong. The top of my feed showed a tweet from Greg that had been retweeted by Dan, Phil and some of my followers.
@(y/t/h), I don’t care if you don’t read this but… there was 4 screenshots of what he had written in him memos.

Before I had the pleasure of reading through it, the two 6ft men returned home.
“(Y/n)” Dan shouted as he walked through the door. “Where are you?” He asked from the kitchen.  I skipped down the stairs towards the kitchen, where I saw the two men, sympathetic smiles showing.
“Greg?” I guessed, judging by the way still had their phones in their pockets. Phil nodded while Dan stood from his seat and made his way towards me.
“I’m sorry he dragged you into this baby,” he whispered, tucking some of my hair behind my ear.  “I, I shouldn’t have kept on at you about telling the fans.” It broke my heart to see him that way.
“Listen Dan, he’s just being spiteful. Ignore him” I smiled.

“This girl here, she is the sweetest, kindest, most amazing girl I have ever met. I am so proud to call her my girlfriend. I care about her so much and she cares about me. She has helped me through countless existential crisis’, she has binged on anime and game of thrones with me. I understand that there are people out there who believe (y/n) is dating me for the publicity, but I can assure you she isn’t. If she was, she would’ve wanted everyone to know about us the minute we told our families. If she wanted publicity, (y/n) wouldn’t have been scared to make the announcement video” my heart skipped a beat as I heard him say those words.

I returned downstairs to where I left Phil cleaning the plates. “I think we may be in for a danisnotonfire video tomorrow” I mentioned as I began putting away the plates.

It had been 10 minutes since Dan uploaded the video to his channel and there was already a flood of comments. Most supporting Dan and I and showing positivity.
“See, they love you, now lets put this all to rest” Dan said, closing his laptop

A/N Please keep sending requests and if anyone has an idea for a new series tell me

God looks down from heaven on the children of man to see if there are any who understand, who seek after God.
—Psalm 53:2

Don’t do what you do in hopes that others will finally see your worth. God has already shown you what you were worth by providing a way for
you to spend Eternity with Him through Jesus Christ. He doesn’t need you to become more successful at your job or get married or accomplish any other earthly thing before He starts loving you as His worthy daughter. He sees and loves you and will take care of you, right where you are. Before you reach the mountaintop, He loves you right here in the valley.

Seek the Lord daily, and continue to trust that your worth is in Jesus, whether other people choose to acknowledge your worth or not.

One hundred people may pass by you today and never even look your way, but you do not go unnoticed to God. He sees you when you’re making an effort to seek Him, and give all you have to Him. He takes note of you when you worship Him with total abandonment, even when you’re tired. He knows you when you’re in that unmotivated season but still find time to serve and love like Jesus on a daily basis. You might feel like the world is passing you by, and nobody is noticing just how much effort you’re putting into living for the Lord, but it’s okay, because He sees. He knows you by name and He will honor you. Don’t stop now. Don’t grow weary. Keep on seeking Him today. In Jesus’ name, you are worth so much more than you think.

How do you like Mark?? Likes so fucking scared of everything and honestly os just attention seeking lmao and has barely the same talent as Yoongi from BTS or Jiyoung from Bigbang

i just shat my pants reading this ask. *cracks my knuckles* whoever you are, i don’t get why you’re comparing your favourites who’ve done absolutely NOTHING to deserve this comparisons & im sure they wouldn’t want a fan like you to be making fun of idols like that because it’s tough being an idol & every single one of them, i repeat EVERY SINGLE ONE of them dedicated most of their lives just to be an idol. just to please fans like you and to compare idols like they’re toys? no honey, that’s not how it works. they worked their ass off for their dreams and goals; because they wanted to pursue their passion. i’m an army too and i’ve been there ever since their debut & bigbang & jiyong? they’ve always been the kings of the kpop industry, and i know how hard they’ve worked to get to where they are now and i’m super proud of them, but i don’t go around throwing shade on other fandoms & idols, rubbing it in their faces that “xxx from xxx group is so much better why do you like xx”. dude if you’re that capable go head over to korea right now and go spend one quarter of your life training, trying to fit in into the industry & having to appeal and be accepted by the netizens & public. it’s hard. especially people and ‘fans’ like you who like to pull them down when they’re clearly trying their best. please dont be so ignorant and think from an idol and their fans’ perpective, would you like it if i go around trying to spread hate about your favourites, pulling them down and finding flaws in them which NORMAL PEOPLE normally have? if you have so much time on your hands please spend it wisely to think over what you’re doing. and if you don’t like mark (or any other groups because they’re not as talented as you think your favourites are) then please get your ass off my blog and keep your hate and mean comments to yourself

also, answering your question. i love mark for who he is and his personality. i’ve talked to so many other kpop fandom mutuals who don’t even stan nct but they recognise mark too. why? because an idol who doesn’t give up, and if i have to say, he’s one of (or the) busiest idol who’s been constantly promoting since last year (or even when he was a rookie in 2015) he’s only debuted for a year and he’s written many songs, participated in a few collaborations & a few shows. despite all that, he’s never once been arrogant about his work & has never complained about having to work so much, instead, he’s more than happy and grateful that he’s always given so many opportunities to get his & nct’s name our there. him, being a rather shy and innocent boy, took up the courage to join a high school rapping program, which the other contestants had no idea who he was at first & he was completely alone. not to forget he was the only idol there? can you imagine the amount of nervousness & uneasiness surfaced within him because of the tremendous pressure he was facing? and to bring in the fact that mark has a rather low self confidence; he’s one of the most humble & genuine idols (or people) i’ve ever seen and he thinks of others more than he thinks about himself. he’s said many times that he’s working on his self confidence & he’s trying his best to be more confident in the things he does and he managed to have the confidence in going on the program & even getting to the finales; you see this personality of his’? he never gives up; never. even in shows where there’s games where it isnt even relevant at all, he’d keep trying until he actually succeeds in that game. attention seeking? you obviously don’t know mark. how can someone who still fumbles with his words and doesn’t even speak during interviews (unless he’s asked to or needs to) attention seeking? if you notice and observe (which you clearly didn’t) mark’s always smiling at the members when they have the attention instead and he’s someone selfless who tries to take care of the people around him. please don’t call him names like that when you don’t know him well. oh and talent? my boy right here has been working hard since he was a child and he flew to korea from canada (which he misses dearly but was willing to give up for his dream) to chase his dreams to become someone others will recognise. he’s improved a WHOLE lot from where he started and i can never be more proud of him. if he isn’t talented why would sm put him in every nct unit and make him participate in so many songs and tracks? im going to tell you here that this boy can dance, rap, sing, play the guitar, is flexible, and is one of the most nicest people out there. and ‘is scared of everything’?? i didn’t know idols couldn’t have fears too!!! are they gods or deities that are capable of doing everything? clearly not. they’re humans too. why would you want to make fun of his fears which im sure someone else would have too

so please don’t go around hating on him and comparing him to other idols because he’s just like them and for god’s sake, he’s still considered a rookie so give him time to grow & learn (just like how your favourites did), you can’t expect a newly grown plant to bloom overnight right? i mean after all these and you still hate mark then so be it, i can’t change anything but please leave my blog i dont need such negativity about mark on a mark blog

When tragedy strikes, Derek’s gives up everything to fix it. But not everyone is as happy as he is with the end result. So he runs, never looking back. But Derek must learn, he never has been able to run from his past.

“You really should lock your door there, Derek. Anyone could just walk right in.” Stiles tells him smiling.

“So funny story,” Stiles winces, “Remember when I joked you couldn’t get me pregnant?”

Derek nods his head. He remembers pretty much everything from that day.

“Right,” Stiles bobs his head, stops himself and does a little ta-da gesture towards Jacy, “Surprise?”

Til We Ain’t Strangers Anymore by WriteByNight

(7/7 I 35,994 I Explicit)

Stiles should’ve expected Derek to suddenly disappear since the werewolf was in the habit of taking off without notice. However, Derek always showed up when they needed him.

As the weeks pass by, Stiles is no longer confused and a little hurt. What started as heartache begins to get worse the longer Stiles goes without seeing Derek. Eventually, his body begins to shut down and his only hope seems to be Derek…but nobody can find him.

There’s no cure for a broken heart. Except, maybe, the cause for the broken heart himself.

- - -

Or the one where Derek takes off without warning and Stiles finds out he could be Derek’s mate and the distance between Derek and Stiles, along with Derek’s refusal to develop the bond, is slowly killing Stiles. Without Derek, Stiles will die, but no one knows where he is or how to contact him. And Stiles is barely keeping it together.

The Moon’s Gonna Follow Me Home by turningterrific

(2/2 I 82,866 I Explicit)

Derek doesn’t want to call the window repair guy. He doesn’t want to sweep up the glass. He’ll inevitably miss a few shards and pull them out of the bottom of his bare feet for weeks.

He doesn’t want to try to make this place feel like home when it isn’t.

Derek stayed in Beacon Hills and tried to make it work because he wanted pack, wanted purpose. He gave his best effort and found himself back where he started: alone, with a few begrudging allies. He’s tired, and even though his werewolf body heals quickly, he feels the weary ache down to his center.

He packs his car with the few things he cares about enough to drag them from place to place. He locks the loft and calls a realtor about listing the building he’d bought in a misguided attempt to secure a future.

And then he leaves.

Hey, I just recently converted. Someone I know really upset me and though I tried to push it to the back burner, it still made me angry. My question is simple: what does the Qu'ran say about anger and letting go?

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Allāhu Akbar! May Allāh make you steadfast in adhering to goodness and guidance.

Allāh (ﷻ) says:

الْكَاظِمِينَ الْغَيْظَ وَالْعَافِينَ عَنِ النَّاسِ ۗ وَاللَّهُ يُحِبُّ الْمُحْسِنِينَ

“…who repress anger, and who pardon men; verily, Allāh loves loves the doers of good.” [3:134]

Allāh (ﷻ) says:

وَعِبَادُ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الَّذِينَ يَمْشُونَ عَلَى الْأَرْضِ هَوْنًا وَإِذَا خَاطَبَهُمُ الْجَاهِلُونَ قَالُوا سَلَامًا

“And the servants of the Most Merciful are those who walk upon the earth easily, and when the ignorant address them [harshly], they say [words of] peace” [25:63]

Allāh (ﷻ) says:

وَالَّذِينَ يَجْتَنِبُونَ كَبَائِرَ الْإِثْمِ وَالْفَوَاحِشَ وَإِذَا مَا غَضِبُوا هُمْ يَغْفِرُونَ

“And those who avoid the greater sins, and Al‑Fawahish (illegal sexual intercourse), and when they are angry, they forgive.” [42:37]

Anger is one of the evil whispers of Shayṭtān, which leads to so many evils and tragedies, of which only Allāh (ﷻ) knows their full extent.

It was narrated from Abū Hurayrah – Allāh be pleased with him – that a man said to the Prophet (ﷺ), advise me

He (ﷺ) said: “Do not get angry.” He repeated his question several times and he said: “Do not get angry.”

— Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī

The Messenger of Allāh (ﷺ) regarded the one who controls himself when he is angry as being the strongest of men.

It’s very important to note, Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Munajjid said:

Anger for the sake of Allāh is praiseworthy and recommended, such as anger when seeing evil actions.

— al-Islām Su'āl wa-Jawāb (5733)

What to do if you’re in a state of anger? Here are some guidelines: 

1. Seeking refuge with Allāh from the Shayṭtān:

  • The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “If a man gets angry and says, ‘I seek refuge with Allāh,’ his anger will go away.” (Ṣaḥīḥ al-Jāmi’ al-Saghīr [695])

2. Keep silent:

  • The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “If any of you becomes angry, let him keep silent.” (Ṣaḥīḥ al-Jāmi’ al-Saghīr [693, 4027]).

3. Not moving:

  • The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “If any of you becomes angry and he is standing, let him sit down, so his anger will go away; if it does not go away, let him lie down.” (Ṣaḥīḥ al-Jāmi’ al-Saghīr [694])

4. Remembering what Allāh has promised to the righteous:

  • The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “Whoever controls his anger at the time when he has the means to act upon it, Allāh will fill his heart with contentment on the Day of Resurrection.” (Ṣaḥīḥ al-Jāmi’ al-Saghīr [6518])

Golden Advice by Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Munajjid:

“Anger is a part of human nature, and people vary in their anger. It may be difficult for a man not to get angry, but sincere people will remember Allāh when they are reminded, and they will not overstep the mark.”

— al-Islām Su'āl wa-Jawāb (658)

Allāh, show me the truth as truth and guide me to follow it. And show me the false as false and guide me to avoid it.

— ʿUmar, Sharḥ al-Muntahá al-Irādāt (3/497)

If Lotor is his own character [and is like the Thief King from YGO,] I will be excited as hell. [Lotor in the old series was half Galra and Altean, so if that is the case here, Zarkon would’ve killed his mother and half of his heritage. That could make him seek revenge against Zarkon, but goes to dark means to do it and put the Paladins to the test, especially Allura. The Thief King is in a similar vain in YGO with him seeking revenge against the royal family for doing the same.]

Dear 2017 me,

You are still a blank slate, a collection of days not yet trodden, so let’s make it right this time. Learn to cherish each moments. Take time to breathe and look at the things around you. Appreciate. Appreciate. Appreciate. Be grateful. You are more now than you are 5 or 10 years ago. Heck, you are more than now than I am. So please please, don’t hurry in life. Keep your footsteps steady, you may find one day that you seem to be moving slowly, and that’s okay, as long as you keep moving forward. You may stumble and fall along the way, and that’s alright too, I have so much bruises and scars already on my knees and heart, and every time I still try to get back up again. Sometimes I had stayed too long on the ground, and I want to tell you that it’s alright too. Take your time this coming year please. Appreciate life. No rushing forward. Forward is forward. One step is still a step as long as you keep your eyes on your goal. Create goals. Choose happiness. Make happiness one of your goals. And I know you still have that inner compass in you, that inner knowing that makes you know which path to take. Listen to it. Always. It never fails.

And when things get hard and to much to bear, always look and ask the help from Above. Hell, seek Him even on the greatest moments of your life, or even on the most mundane periods of your life. Seek Him at all time. If there’s anything I have learned this year and that I will want you to remember, it is that we have a good good Father in Him. Remember where your help comes from. Pray. Whether you’re happy or not, because He always listens, every time.

And please, please know that I am here for you, your past selves, all of us, an accumulation and amalgam of years and experiences, a collection of moments and little joys and sadness, we’re here and we’re still here, making up who you are today, and who you will be this 2017.

And above all, be brave. I know you can do this. I believe in you.
— 

Wishing you the best in life and love and everything else that your heart desires,
2016 me

P.S. Keep your brain and heart connected at the same time. All the time. It’s hard, I know. But those two work wonders together, and not apart.

P.S.2. And really, I think 2015 and 2013 us had messed us up more grand time! 😉

Four years, five months

A/N: So… do you remember how I said I was going to try to make this things shorter? Well… I did try, but I just couldn’t. I’ll just finish Law (AND I HOPE THIS TIME IS A SHORTER ONE), and then I’ll be posting the rest of the reactions! I hope you’re enjoying these! 

Katsumi - Win over the Sea. (We’ve got Luffy in this one!)

Words: 2,262


“So you want me to give up my dream!”

“That’s not it!” You yell and soon enough the rest of the crew are looking at you both from different parts of the Sunny.

“Then what is it?!”, Luffy yells back, not minding in causing a scene in front of everyone.

“It’s that you can get hurt, Luffy!”, you try to explain. “You always make me worry sick and I know how strong you are and how capable you are to do the things you do”, you look at him in the eyes. “And I promised you that I’ll make you the King with everyone else, but sometimes you’re out of control!”

“That’s how I am!”, he fights back. “I don’t understand why you get so worried! I’m not gonna die!”

“What do you mean why?! You’re my captain, Luffy! I worry for my captain. And you also are my lover, for the love of God! What do you expect me to do!”

“The rest of my friends aren’t like you, [Name]! They don’t keep bothering me about how dangerous is something or how scared they were! I wish you just stop being so annoying! If me being your lover makes you act different than the othersthen I don’t want to be anymore!”,

“What?”

Luffy…”, someone from the crew mumbles, and you think it is Ussop.

“I don’t want you to be your lover anymore! And I don’t want you in this ship anymore!”, you widen your eyes not believing his words.

Luffy’s exasperated expression had always made you laugh, maybe because it had never been directed at you… but now, with his eyes looking straight at your soul and no hesitation in his words, really made you want to cry, a few tears pricking at the corners of your eyes.

“Luffy!”, Nami hisses and Luffy looks at her.

“If [Name] doesn’t like how I do my things, then she can leave”, he looks back at you. A hostile tone on his voice that was enough to shut you up completely if you were about to say something else.

Was he really saying all of this? He’s angry at you because you are worried about his well being? You’ve never had a fight before. At least not this serious. He literally told you- oh. You need to leave. You need to leave this ship, you need to leave your friends. You need to leave your lover… You have to leave now.

Luffy looks slightly aware of his words just now. He opens and closes his mouth a few times, trying to say something, but the words wouldn’t reach his tongue. And now he’s looking at you with pleading eyes. Waiting for you to say something. Hoping for you to say something else so he can fix his mistake.

“Roger that, Captain”, you finally say, nodding your head as you spin around, leading to your quarters to pick up a few things.

“[Na-”, you don’t stop to hear anything else and you walk pass everyone’s eyes.

“Luffy!!! What was that?!!!”, Nami heats him in the head but he can’t stop looking at the direction you just left.

“I don’t know”

***

Katsumi’s hysterical giggles made your heart fill with love as you playfully pinched his little sides and he wiggled around in your lap; his cheeks were slightly red from the laughing, and he was making some funny noises with his nose. You stopped your playful assault and smiled down at him. 

“Mama!”, he giggled, sitting up and cupping your cheeks between his little hands. “Let’s play hide and seek now, yes?!”, he jumped off you and into the sand, his little bare feet leaving little marks.

first callout: https://appearifycallout.tumblr.com/post/159542443182/callout-for-tumblr-user-appearifyfuchsianshoruss

It seems we’re back again with calling out tumblr user Appearify. Leon, or Lane, Chase, Miles- or whatever name he has chosen to use to try and separate himself from the monstrous things he did, has been up to more things as of late, more or less warranting a follow up callout to the last. If you haven’t read the last callout, you should (link, in case you couldn’t grab it before you started reading), and if you were swayed by his excuses on that one, here’s a post debunking that.

Leon has “apologized” numerous times for his actions, and has made claims about changing and being a better person, yet this has apparently been a statement ongoing for years, which is why I am writing this callout. I have no intention of bringing harm to Leon or his friendgroup, but instead I’m trying to warn others away from their actions. Anything involving Leon after this I will not take part in, as I am choosing to drop the situation lest something comes up again.

Okay Folks, Let’s Talk about SGA1:03 “Hide and Seek”

Look at this smiling asshole.  Clearly nothing wrong can happen to this man.  He’s just too cheerful for hardship to visit him in this here episode.

Er, except maybe a shot?  But that’s still only what 0.5/10 on the whump scale.  It isn’t even part of any sort of torture or anything.

Look, they didn’t even hurt him when his boyfriend  friend threw him off a tower thingy.  “Hide and Seek” I’m not sure you’re even taking this thing seriously.

Okay, I take that back.  As someone that had to recently give up coffee for good, cold turkey I can officially tell you that this is inhumane torture.

A manly faint.  This is how I too reacted to life without coffee.

Let’s all mock the dying man.

We interrupt your regularly scheduled McKay whump for this breaking news: Teyle is a beautiful person with a stunning smile.  

Now back to our program.

Do it for the vine expedition Rodney.

Sexy man down.  Notice who got there first.  Already with the touching too.

Everyone cares about Rodney.  Much touching, all the concern. Much better, episode: Whump rating 8/10

This just in…Teyla’s still a goddess.  Sorry folks, this was supposed to be all about Rodney whump but Teyla just too damn beautiful in this episode.

Yay!  Rodney’s better!  Kinda…maybe…I won’t turn down an episode tag.
