they sure do drink a lot

Game Salesman ME2 quotes:
-Have you tried “Galaxy of Fantasy” yet? I love that game. It’s based on turian mythology, but it’s really fun. I hear it has 11 billion players now.
-Do you have any games you’d like to trade in? You get two credits toward a new game.
-You know what’s good? “Alliance Corsair.” The battles are pretty realistic, but it’s still fun. And you can install it on an omni-tool.
-For 10 credits, we offer data protection for any game we sell. If the copy protection ever malfunctions, you can download a new copy free.
-Those asari-hanar porn games they sell in Shin Akiba are really nasty.
-Hmm? Oh, sorry. I was playing this fascinating human game – “Solitaire.” Did you need something?
-I wish they still made roleplaying games like they used to. These days it’s all “big choices” and “visceral combat.”

-The worst thing about extranet games is when some batarian comes on and insists on speaking his own language, without auto-translation.
-I don’t get the complaints about the “Grim Terminus Alliance” games. So what if you can capture and beat slaves? It’s just a game.
-You know anyone who plays that extranet game, “Third Coil?” Me neither. You sure hear about it a lot in the news, though.
-I know it looks like I’m not working, but there’s only so many times you can sweep the place. If games were still available on OSD, I could alphabetize the racks or something.
-Do you play those human sports games? They sell well in the Alliance – and to krogan.

Dissertation Writing Tips

Here are some tips I got from a university Q&A session about how to write an MA dissertation. 

  • manage your supervisor 
    • don’t expect them to remember everything - just because it’s occupying all your brains-pace, it doesn’t mean it occupies much of theirs
    • don’t use your supervisor as a glorified spellchecker - you could be making better use of their time
    • don’t be afraid to prompt them about meetings
  • make sure you are submitting as much work as you can to your supervisor, and make sure you hand it in with enough time in advance so they can look at it properly
  • do your best to have a healthy routine
    • drink lots of water
    • make sure you socialise and have ‘me-time’
    • get away from the books/screen occasionally!
  • writing tips
    • get someone to copyedit and proof-read your work - can they follow your argument? is it clearly expressed?
    • reading sections aloud to yourself can help
    • don’t leave your citations and bibliography to the last minute: you’ve got to make sure that they are comprehensive and accurate as scholarly presentation is so important
  • make sure you frame your topic and argument well from the beginning
    • what texts are you using and why?
    • why have you chosen this topic?
    • how is your work situated against the work of others?
    • do not assume that you reader knows what you’re talking about - define your terms clearly!

Hope that helps - if you guys have any more tips, do let me know in an ask or a comment! x

Things they don’t tell you about top surgery

- Talk to the surgeon about the size you want your new areolas/nipples (don’t be afraid to ask)

- Numbness. No one talks about this for guys who are about to have surgery. You’re going to be numb all in your chest area, especially where the incisions were. They cut nerves as they pass along your chest, and it can take up to a year to regenerate those nerves. Still, feels super foreign for the first two weeks

- Make your bed into a pillow chair, body pillow, two on each side, and two for your head. 

- Sleep alone. I tried to sleep with my girlfriend and it was miserable. You really do need the entire bed for yourself

- Go on Groupon, & get yourself a 10 foot lightning cable iPhone charger, BEST THING EVER, can reach from wherever you are

- Don’t take a week off from work, take two. You will regret the one week, and love the extra time

- When they say “don’t move too much, even after the first week”. LISTEN. I moved way too much and got so sore super quickly. 

- Drink lots of water & eat if your taking the pain medication, otherwise your stomach feels super funky.

- Get stool softeners, & don’t be afraid to take those babies. Don’t wait a week to poop. you’ll surely regret it. 

- The drains are scary & they may hurt while draining or rewrapping your dressings, but once they come out, the second they do, its no more pain, its crazy. 

i hope this helps someone, because i wish i knew all of this when i was having mine a month ago. Looking back its like everyone forgets all the real negatives, its a great experience, & i healed very well & quick compared to most, but the first few days are crazy. They hurt, suck but it gets better. 

If only it was that easy, Susan…

Bonus:

When you have a lot of intensely bad days in a short period - 

  • turn off the news
  • stay off of Facebook/any other social media with content that might upset you 
  • focus on right now
  • clean up your living space 
  • make sure you’re taking your meds
  • drink water
  • don’t drink alcohol
  • if you need a nap, let yourself nap
  • make yourself at least start your laundry
  • take a long shower/bath and do things that focus on making you feel good and clean (floss, brush your teeth, wash your hair, exfoliate, shave, etc.) 
  • pick up a project you put down a while ago, do some art therapy, exercise, or meditate if that’s your thing
a honest study guide

As I am usually a straight A student, I thought I’d share some of my favourite study “hacks”, but be warned: i will not be gentle with you. I am going to tell you the brutal truth about getting great marks, because it is no use sugarcoating the fact that school is actually super hard work! 

discipline beats motivation

to be honest no matter how perfect your/any studyblr might be, looking at a blog will unfortunately never ever motivate you to study as hard as you will have to to get an A. Studyblrs may inspire you, but the one thing which will really get you studying is discipline. So, as cruel as it may sound, force yourself to be productive and you will get some serious work done.

have no social life

… at least on some days. if you find it difficult to fit your studies into your social life, try reversing the whole thing. Don’t make plans with your friends on days during which you want/need to study. This definitely isn’t fun, I know, but for me, I often find it difficult to get work done when I have plans later that day as firstly, getting a certain amount of work done within a strict time limit stresses me out and secondly, you should definitely use all the time you can get - especially shortly before the upcoming exam.

all-nighters equal bad time management

truth be told good students normally won’t have to pull all nighters as sleep is very important for not only your concentration but also for your health. To make sure that you get enough rest you should start studying as early as possible, for me that is normally one week before the particular exam, and plan what you will do on which day without trying to fit everything into the last minute. That will leave you relaxed, well rested and concentrated on the day of your exam.

find something that keeps you going

i usually drink a lot of coffee when i am studying, because during a hard study session i need to stay focused and awake. If you don’t like coffee, you could also go for black tea or green tea or simply some fruit as it is very important to get some vitamins (or in my case caffeine) in your system to not fall asleep while working.

ask for help

whether you swap notes with your colleagues or you mail the professor some questions doesn’t matter at all. It’s only important that you accept that you probably won’t be able to do everything on your own, so find yourself a study partner, ask questions when something seems unclear to you or even get a tutor. And definitely don’t be embarrassed about asking questions! Nobody knows everything.

no distractions

studying is boring and you might find that music makes it a little more exciting, but often listening to music or taking a lot of breaks is only keeping you from getting work done. So suck it up and study either silently, to classical music or to relaxing noises you can find on the internet. Also try not to take too many breaks. Don’t overwork yourself, of course, but also try to stay focused for longer than 15 minutes as this will allow you to be more productive and don’t study with friends if you end up chit-chatting to each other instead of working.

write everything down

even if you have a good memory, you won’t be able to remember a thing after class, so suck it up, don’t talk to your desk mate and focus on writing everything important down what the teacher says. even if you get handed enough material there will still be things which you should write down such as explanations, examples and additional information. that will help you later on to understand what you are actually studying.

you absolutely need to study

don’t ever think, no matter how much attention you’ve paid in class or how good you are at a certain subject, that you won’t have to study. there is always work to get done and if you are already good at something work on being better to excel at academics.

It’s International Women’s Day!

So there you go, favorite moments of women supporting women in Mass Effect:
-Ashley telling Shepard she’s going to talk to Liara as soon as she hears Liara might not be well after the fall of Thessia
-Kasumi telling Shepard to be gentle with Miranda
-Tali saying “I’m not staying, I’m coming with you” right after getting Rannoch back
-“We can’t pretend to be anything other than troubleshooting space divas” “You know, that does sound pretty cool.”
-Tali introduced in a mission as the one handling hacking and security and Liara complimenting her, saying “we couldn’t ask for a better expert”
-Kasumi saying she gets Jack after doing her loyalty mission
-Actually all of Kasumi’s comments because she always has something sweet to say about the women around her, about how cute and great they are and how it’s necessary to be good to them all. Bless you Kasumi!
-Samara about Miranda: “Miranda is undoubtedly a hard woman. I respect her strength and determination. She carries many burdens, and doesn’t share them with others.”
-EDI asking Shepard to keep Samantha on board because she’s “extremely effective" 
-That place on Aria’s couch, the one she keeps for Shepard if she drinks too much at Purgatory
-Diana and Samantha constantly talking to each other despite us never seeing them in the same room, and they’re both curious about what the other is doing
-EDI saying tmi information about Samantha in front of others and Tali trying to save Sam by immediately starting a conversation about the rarity of herbed dextro cheeses.
-Jack and Miranda bickering in the Citadel party, getting past their previous conflict
-Nyreen and Shepard bonding over their need to protect innocents
-Shepard complimenting Samantha a lot, telling her "good catch”, “good job”, etc, making sure Sam knows her hard work is appreciated
-Jack telling Shepard she won’t let her down
-Ashley and Shepard no longer keeping count: “Lost count of all the times you saved me”  "Almost as many times as you saved me, hero lady.“
-"It’s been an honor, Tali'Zorah vas Normandy.”
-Urdnot Bakara telling Shepard that “Urdnot Bakara calls you a friend”

self care is important

hi! it’s coral aka extrastudies and i too, am working on taking better care of myself, because self care will actually help you SO MUCH. #pleasetakecareofyourself2k17

anyways, please do not forget…

to sleep: sleeping is important and you should strive to get 8-9 hours of quality sleep each night. that means you should try to stay away from blue light emitting devices (i.e. computers, phones, tablets) about 30-60 minutes before your bedtime. naps are also great! just make sure they’re not messing up your sleep schedule.

to drink your water: okay, everyone says it, but i know for a fact that you’re not doing it. at least, i’m not. so drink up! if you’re not big on water, try eating fruits and veggies that have a lot of water content. now, don’t you feel a little better?

to eat balanced meals (and snacks!): for some people, it’s hard to remember to eat, and for others, it’s hard to resist that last cookie. just remember to keep healthy snacks on hand, but if you’re not eating “perfectly”, don’t be too hard on yourself. what matters is that you get enough nutrients to function properly. if this is hard to do for you, try reaching out for support.

to take a break: it’s very tempting to try and finish your language arts essay in an hour and a half sitting, but will this increase productivity, or increase stress? try getting up for a stretch break every 20 minutes. you don’t want your eyes to become too tired or for your hand to cramp up!

to appreciate yourself and others: often, we take a lot of things for granted, and some of those things include yourself, your loved ones and friends, and ordinary people around the world. taking a moment to recognize this well help you become more mindful of your surroundings and can change your attitude.

you’re beautiful, smart, talented, and a good, thoughtful person. look how far you’ve come and how far you’ll go. you are capable of amazing things. now, go out there and spread love.

Hey, blossoms! There are times when we get ill, which is perfectly natural. To be honest, I am currently sick, so this is kind of a refined version of my thoughts from a few days ago. I was worried about missing school, and I thought that some ideas I have could help you!

self-care 

 The most important thing to do when you’re sick is to take care of yourself and get better. This may mean putting your studies aside, but health always comes first. Here’s some tips:

- Certain types of tea, like chamomile and ones with lemon, can soothe sore throats.

- (Side note: I’ve heard that marshmallows are also able to help sore throats because of the gelatin they contain, but that may not be true and I don’t have a credible source for it.) 

- Make sure you drink lots of fluids, like juice, milk, and most importantly, water! One of my personal faves is Tang, which is this orange powder that you dissolve in water. It used to be really big in America a while ago but I don’t know widespread it is elsewhere. 

- Try to shower regularly if you’re congested because the steam will clear out your sinuses. 

 - If you can’t shower regularly, nasal rinses will work just fine too! You can get a  system for that at your local pharmacy. (There’s also this thing you can do where you fill a sink with hot water, put a towel over it, and stick your head underneath the towel. This allows the steam to build up, which means you can decongest a little.)

- Medicate regularly!! Check the directions on whatever type of medication you’re taking to see when it wears off and set a timer so you can stay on top of it. This will help your recovery process along a bit faster. However, DO NOT ABUSE MEDICATION. Take only as much as is prescribed because taking too much can actually be worse for your health. 

- If you’re on antibiotics, make sure to eat well because antibiotics are designed to take out all types of bacteria within the body, even the good ones in your digestive system. (I’d personally recommend eating foods with fiber and protein and staying away from dairy if you can. That’s just my personal experience! It may be different for other people.)

- Get some rest!! You may want to catch up on your studies but you’ll be able to catch up quicker and understand material better if you’re well rested. 

catching up 

So, you’re feeling alright and ready to begin making up work. Where do you begin? 

- Here’s some posts on catching up after being away for a while (note some of these are travel based, but there’s still some good information in there) 

- Email your teachers! Text your classmates! Ask for notes, for homework, and for additional help if you’re unclear about what’s going on. 

- If you’re feeling well enough, you could run in to your classes in order to get the homework and briefly conference with your teachers, but it’s always best to make sure you’re not contagious or feeling poorly before doing so. Email is pretty much just as effective. 

- Start small. Trying to catch up on all your work in one day is never good. Try to do the work for maybe one class, and if you’re feeling well enough, do another.

- Do what’s most important first. If you’re in a group project and they’re waiting for your input on a presentation or something else, get that in ASAP. Don’t affect the grades of others with your illness.

returning to class 

As you return to your usual schedule, here are some things to note:

 - Before going back to class, ensure you’re in a good place mentally and physically. For example, if you’re still running a fever or you still feel very ill, take some more time and wait. 

- Make sure your study space is functional so that you can begin to return back to your normal schedule. The desk reflects the mind. 

- Keep up on your fluids! If you’re still a little under the weather or you haven’t finished that course of antibiotics, keep taking those meds! 

- Don’t be hard on yourself if you don’t understand something. Being gone is hard. Ask for help and self-advocate.

- If you’re on a sports team or doing some other strenuous activity, it’s okay to take a couple more days away from that to let your body recover completely. 

- The most important thing is to take it easy, even after you’re well enough to come back to class. If you overwork yourself while still recovering, that can lead to backslide, so please be careful!!

I hope this will be useful, darlings!! Take care of yourselves and remember that so many people are rooting for you to do well, including me :]

All the love,

My Fake Boyfriend Part 10

Summary: After receiving a very rude letter of your ex on the mail saying that he is going to get married. You see yourself not knowing what to do, you can just let it go or accept the help of your hot neighbor and pretend he is your boyfriend.

Paring: Bucky x Reader

Words: 2960

Warnings: A lot of emotions, a lot of fluffy and a lot of against

@drinkfantasy thank you so much for being my beta.

You and Bucky enter the church hand to hand. As soon as you step in you have a bad feeling. “Doll, relax, I am here for you and it’s only a wedding, it’s not like you are going to war, trust me this is easier.” Bucky says kissing your forehead, he is trying to be funny but his tone is serious.

“How do you always know what I am feeling?” You ask sitting on a bench close to where your family is. “I pay attention to you, doll. You always bit your lip and you run your fingers through your hair when you’re nervous.” He says putting a string of your hair behind your ear.

All Hands

Okay, I made a smut! 😊 And I’m gonna tag all my favorites because I’m desperate for feedback and I respect y'all as writers. So, I’m totally sorry if that makes me look like a creeper! So it’s Dean x reader with a side of Sam. And it’s obv NSFW. 

 Okay, deep breath… 

 Turning one of the bunker’s extra rooms into a media room had been a terrific idea, you thought to yourself as Sam flipped through Netflix. One rare, case-free week, he’d got the idea to set up an entertainment unit, which then became a large screen and projection set-up, which then had to include two huge, plush couches and a recliner, and then Dean insisted on adding a minibar and pimped-out surround sound. You didn’t know what got them so set on their new “theater,” but their enthusiasm and playful banter while working on it was fun to watch. And they weren’t wrong. This place was awesome. It was cozy but modern, and the perfect place to spend downtime, enough room for everyone to fit comfortably. 

At the moment, Cas was in the recliner flipping through a magazine curiously, Sam was on one couch, hogging the remote, and you were spooned up on the other couch with Dean, his fingers tracing lazy circles on the skin of your upper arm. You closed your eyes and snuggled your head deeper into your pillow, feeling the most relaxed you had in months, maybe years.

A/n: Hello! If you are willing to share, I would like to know who you like more after reading it, Taehyung or Jungkook? Thank you! 

Series: 01 |02 |03 |04 |05 |Epilogue

Description: The government is in charge of matching everyone up with a partner, the person they believe you are the most compatible with. You get assigned Jungkook, who looks perfect on his profile and even more perfect in person. You are later reminded however, that perfection does not exist, and not everything in life will go as planned.

               You sat across from him, a dark coffee in front of him and a hot chocolate in front of you. You wrapped your hands around your cup, warming your hands as breeze passed. You were hidden in a corner of the coffee shops patio, the only place you could find nearby that would allow you to sit and talk with some privacy. The inside was warm and buzzing with people, a place you would have been more comfortable, but you both knew that your conversation wasn’t one someone could overhear. You looked up at him, his eyes looking down at the dark wood of the table.

               “Are you going to say anything?” you asked, clearing your throat. He looked up at you, his lips slightly parted and his eyes wide. He had said he would explain everything to you, but you had yet to hear that explanation.

               “I’ve been trying to come up with a way to explain myself myself…,” he said, trailing off as his eyes returned back to the table. You lifted your cup to your lips, taking a sip of the sweet liquid, waiting for him to continue. He picked up a napkin and began to fold it up, trying to occupy himself with something else, as if it would help him get out of it.

               “And?” you asked, a little amused at his nervousness. You didn’t want to find it funny, but you did. If you were him, you would be nervous too, but he had no reason to be. It hadn’t been long after finding out about him and Jade that you had decided you would move on without causing any issues, even though those issues would only really be for him.

               “And I don’t know how,” he admitted, the anxiety leaking from his voice. You nodded, thankful that you felt in control of the situation. You thought back on the events of the past two days, wondering how they days had managed to feel much longer than they actually were. Maybe it was because before every day had been the same. You stuck to a routine, one that had worked for the time being, but one that you no longer needed. More had happened in the last two days than had happened in the last couple of years, and despite how little it actually was, it felt like you were living, and you liked it, even with the bad it brought you.

Before the war Bucky always liked kids and always imagined having a few of his own. But now? Kids were usually afraid of him and the ones that weren’t afraid, their parents wouldn’t let they get close. Bucky knew how much you liked kids and seeing you with your nephew at dinner last night warmed his heart.  

During the dinner you kept doing silly faces to Julian and telling him little secrets. This opened something in his mind that he never thought that he would have again, the possibility of a family.

You were so happy yesterday and he wanted to make you happy even that he was terrified. After your mother left the room, you pull him into a tight hug “We are gonna have so much fun.” You whisper in his ear, he can feel how excited you are and somehow this makes his fears disappear.

Tackling Piles of Readings

Beautiful Instagram-worthy study pictures and colorful pen sets aside, tackling piles of course reading is something that very few individuals look forward to. Before I go ahead and tackle my homework for tomorrow, I thought I’d share with you all a brief set of tips as to how I get it done. 

  1. Sit in a place that’s cozy, but not too cozy. For me, that place is my dorm bed. I live between three different places and my bed at my parents’ home (which is only 30 minutes away from my university) is definitely not the place for me to be studying. For some reason, however, I can study perfectly fine on the bed in my dorm room. This isn’t the case for everyone. Lots of people advise against studying in your own bed. For me, I think it’s honestly just a personal preference. What I do make sure to do, however, is to not read under heavy blankets. Instead, I’ll do my reading while I am wrapped up in a thin blanket and am sitting up against my pillows. 
  2. Make sure everything you need is nearby. For me, everything includes a light snack and refreshing or soothing drink (today I’ve chosen bubble tea). Other items that may be useful while reading include pens and highlighters for annotating and a notebook/computer to take notes in. 
  3. Illuminate the room with light. Try to read in a place full of light. That way the darkness doesn’t trick your brain into falling asleep. 
  4. Have a notepad at hand. Write any random, distracting thoughts unrelated to your reading in this notepad. That way, instead of getting side tracked by sudden thoughts, you have them all written down in one place. 
  5. Music? No Music? Up to you. Just make sure that the music is instrumental only. Music with words might throw you off as you read. Keep it on low, if possible. I like to listen to tracks that repeat themselves constantly. That way I don’t get distracted by new chords. Here’s a particular favorite track of mine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lX8QVBl-ZG0&t=205s
  6. Keep a dictionary at ready. Look up words you don’t understand as you go. Jot down notes into your reading. The more confused you are, the less you’ll gain from whatever you are reading. This is why clarifying terms is important. 
  7. Take breaks every so often. The human brain is like a sponge, but even sponges have limits to the amount of liquid they can hold. Similarly, your brain has a limit to the amount of concentration it can sustain in one sitting. Take a break when you start feeling brain dead. But time yourself. Make sure your break stays limited. And don’t check social media in this break (unless absolutely necessary). What I like to do is actually get something done off my to do list (like sending an email or filling out a form). That way, I feel better and more accomplished after I’ve taken my break. If I’m feeling too lazy to do that, I usually just jam out to non-instrumental music for a bit or watch a cooking video. The type of video you watch is important because you don’t want to go down that familiar rabbit hole of distraction. That rabbit hole, for me, is comprised of study bloggers, beauty vloggers, etc. Cooking videos just happen to not be rabbit hole videos for me. Find yours. 
  8. Don’t get down on yourself. Don’t get down on yourself if you’re having trouble reading or if you don’t find your reading interesting. Not everything in the world was written to be a thrilling piece of literature or an excitingly well-written research paper. Some pieces of work are just boring – and that’s okay. What’s important is that you finish the reading so that you understand tomorrow’s lecture or get a better understanding of a concept being discussed in class. You won’t always have fun studying. Studying is hard work and hard work is just that: hard. Just keep on at it. In the end, you’ll be glad you did. So will your GPA. 

Those are my eight tips for tackling reading! Happy Studying!

With love, hugs, and good wishes,

Huda

Suga:

He definitely needs it even if he acts like he doesn’t. At first he might act cold or awkward about it but it won’t take him long to break the ice and getting all cozy, relieving some of that stress weighing on his shoulders.

J-Hope:

Endless comments and gasps of appreciation. He is smiling alright but he is also taking metal notes to pay you back for taking care of him when he didn’t even ask for it. Lots of giggling and a generally pleased Hoseok.

Rap Monster:

Finds it sexy but also feels kinda guilty. To be real honest he would be the one wearing the pants in this relationship and for the most part, he should be spoiling you. Yet when you insisted that he sits back and just let you do all the work, Namjoon will just fall even deeper for you.

Jimin:

Finds it difficult to just sit around and let you take care of him. He should be helping you and making sure you are not exhausted so while you decided to give him a drink and made your way to prepare dinner, Jimin crept to the kitchen and gave you a startling hug saying if he can’t help, he’ll at least not leave you alone.

Yeah no that’s not how stuff works for this little one. Tae is in charge of sprinkling fairy dust all over the place and even though he was drop dead tired and he wanted to object so bad but he was having stuff just how he liked it, Taehyung finally decides to pull you into his arms and cuddle the day away because what a perfect way to pamper him.

More Than That (Pt. 1)

[Summary]: Who knew your boyfriend knew Tony Stark in college. At a college alumni party, you meet the Avengers and they immediately take a liking to you, treating you like a “sister-like” figure. Except for one super soldier who likes you “more than that”. When your relationship starts to fall apart, you confide in Steve about it who’s willing to do anything to be more than friends with you.

[Pairing]: Steve x reader (mentions of the team)

Originally posted by marvelgifs

You will never forget the first time you met the Avengers. It was a pretty surreal moment for you. And all because your boyfriend had went to college with the most well known member of the team.

A party invitation had been sent to the apartment the one day and you almost had to do a double-take, noticing the address it said where the invite came from. For a second you almost thought that it was a practical joke from one of Greg’s buddies.

“Hey, hun,” you said to him as you walked into the kitchen. “This isn’t another joke from Billy, is it?” And you tossed the envelope into his lap.

If you're not too terribly busy, the world could always use more Holsom fluff :)

Holsom fluff, my favorite! I combined this with a secondary request from @zombizombi for some ref!Holster, which I could not resist, because Holster+bitching speaks to my soul. Also, team dentist!Ransom, because it amused me. (Warning: mention of teeth.)

(Now also on AO3.)


Ransom landed in his seat barely five minutes before the game was supposed to start. Lardo, feet propped up against the glass, sketchbook against her knees, fingertips just peeking out of the sleeves of yet another sweatshirt stolen from Shitty, spared him a glance and a “You’re late” before going back to sketching warm-ups.

“I know, I know. Kid broke off two of her teeth on the playground, right up to the nerve, so I had to do some composites.”

She grimaced. “Ugh.”

“Why do you ask me these things when you know I’m going to talk to you about teeth? I’m a dentist, for fuck’s sake. And we’re here to watch hockey.”

“I’m in it for the butts.”

He grinned as he took in the player stretching on the ice in front of her and then her sketchbook. “Think Shits will like that one?”

“I call it ‘Spread,’” she said loftily.

He choked and was suddenly glad he hadn’t had time to stop by concessions on his way in. “So, uh, where is Shits tonight anyway?”

She waved a hand vaguely, barely missing whacking him in the face with the end of the sleeve. “Up in the office. They needed some documents looked over.”

He recognized that tone. “How long have you guys been here?”

Hours.”

“Couldn’t get anyone to strip for you?”

“Shut up.” Then she turned to him and smiled slowly.

Ransom was immediately alarmed. “Oh god. What?”

“There is some news you’ll want.”

“Yeah?” he asked cautiously.

“New ref.”

Ransom’s eyebrows went up. “And I’m interested in this… because why? I mean, is he supposed to be good or biased or something else?”

“Tall. He’s supposed to be very tall. You’ll see.”

  • yeah, yoongi’s fucking grumpy
  • but that doesn’t meant he’d be grumpy towards you
  • no no no
  • i think yoongi would actually be really caring
  • but not in the traditional sense of the word
  • don’t expect too much kissing and pda and that type of shit
  • he’s not the type to hug you out in public or hold hands as you walk down the street or kiss you as you wait in line to get your coffee to go, he’s just not into that
  • he never understood why people have the need to do those things
  • when there was a time and place for those things, somewhere in private
  • i think he’s more of the type to express his care with small actions 
  • however, his way of caring is something you would have to get used to
  • at first, you’d think he wasn’t that into you
  • you’d be like why isn’t he hugging me??? i want to hug him all the time
  • i want to suck his face off 24/7, why doesn’t he want that??
  • what am i doing wrong??? 
  • he’s literally perfect and i don’t want to fuck this up !?!?
  • he wouldn’t hug you as much as you wanted him to
  • he wouldn’t want to suck your face off 24/7
  • he wouldn’t be all touchy feely like the guys you usually go for
  • you’d get all concerned about it and you’d start thinking he really wasn’t into you
  • but with time you’d learn to appreaciate his signs of affection 
  • like making you coffee in the morning, giving you his hoodies to wear, sending you random texts about his day
  • “i swear to god i’m going to kill one of them if they don’t grow up”
  • “these fools won’t stop messing around”
  • “i fucking hate dance practice with them”
  • “they made me TWERK”
  • “how much time would i serve for six murders?” 
  • “and would you wait for me until i got out?”
  • “sweden is beautiful, we should come here together some day”
  • and you’d know that he thought of you and wanted to share parts of his day with you and that, in his head, that was equal to expressing his emotions in physical ways
  • also you’d live for his late night phone calls
  • he’d call at three am, hoping you were still up
  • “i just finished producing this song, you have to hear it, i promise you’ll love it” *screeching*
  • “i’m done filming for the day, just checking up on you”
  • he’d always show you he cares when he’d call 
  • he’d call just to hear your voice before he goes to bed
  • you’d talk for a minute or two
  • but you’d know it means a lot to him, and that it was his way of being intimate
  • and he’d say things that mean i love you in yoongi language
  • like “did you get home safe”
  • “were there any problems at school today”
  • “don’t catch a cold, wear something warm when you go out”
  • “don’t forget to take your passport”
  • “i’ll call you in the morning so you don’t sleep through your alarm”
  • “don’t drink too much, and if you do, make sure you eat a lot”
  • {crying}
  • i said no touchy feely stuff
  • but don’t think that includes cuddling  !!!
  • he likes to sleep
  • and he loves to sleep with you
  • your head on his chest makes him fall asleep a lot faster, the sound of your breathing lulls him to sleep on cold afternoons as you snuggle up to him covered in blankets
  • he loves it when he’s cold and your body warms him up
  • he always runs his fingers through your hair and plays with the hair on the nape of your neck, and that always calms you down when you’re upset
  • you don’t get as much physical attention every day
  • but when you’re upset
  • yoongi would go all out to make you feel better
  • if someone pissed you off, he’d be very angry and would always offer to talk to them and sort things out for you, or jokingly, he’d offer to beat them up
  • or he’d playfully say he’ll write a diss track on them and you’d know he didn’t mean it, but it was still cute
  • and when he’d see the idea is making you feel better, he’d come up with random diss lines against the person who upset you that you’d end up crying from laughter at his rap lines
  • and if you were sad, yoongi would be EXTRA thoughtful and considerate
  • because he’s someone who knows what that feels like
  • that is exactly why he doesn’t get too touchy feely and why he always seems distant
  • he’s lost in his own world, he has so many thoughts about everything and he likes to keep them to himself
  • he likes to keep his private things private
  • and you’re the most private thing in his life
  • he doesn’t want people to see him kissing you or holding you or doing anything
  • that’s reserved for your eyes only
  • he’s a perfectionist
  • he wants to be perfect to his fans, to his audience, to his band members, but also to you
  • and when he feels like he’s not perfect in something (never!!) he feels bad and shuts everyone off and ends up thinking about the thing he messed up
  • and he ends up in this circle of self-hatred and self-loathing and then pity, and then hatred because of the pity and it doesn’t go away easily, and the only way it does is through his music
  • so when you’d feel down, he’d do everything in his power to make you feel better
  • because he never wants anyone, let alone you, to feel the way he feels when he feels down
  • and those moments when he’d open up to you and tell you about what’s bothering him, share his deepest thoughts with you, let you be the first person to listen to his songs, to his most personal thoughts, worries and desires, those moments would let you know just how much you mean to him
  • and that’s why you would never be unhappy with him
  • even if he didn’t kiss you and hug you all the time
  • it wouldn’t matter
  • he’d do those things when it was most important, when you’d feel down
  • and you could always count on him to make you feel better, no matter where he is or what he’s doing
  • and you’d always try to do the same for him
  • even if you knew most of his problems are in his head
  • and you couldn’t really control them
  • you’d try your best
  • anyway
  • i think he’d be a great boyfriend
  • caring and thoughtful and really funny
  • because his sarcasm and the realness he serves all the time are fucking great
  • and he’s the most relatable person ever
  • and he’s a musical genius
  • plus he’s hot
  • that concludes this late night thirst for boyfriend material yoongi
