this bit was totally hot

What we really need is an adaptation of the original 1740 The Beauty and the Beast

So were you aware that the The Beauty and the Beast story we all know is a heavily abridged and rewritten version of a much longer novella by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve?  And that a lot of the plot holes existing in the current versions exist because the 1756 rewrite cut out the second half of the novella, which consisted entirely of the elaborate backstory that explains all the weird shit that happened before?  And that the elaborate backstory is presented in a way that’s kind of boring because the novel had only just been invented in 1740 and no one knew how they worked yet, but contains a bazillion awesome ideas that beg for a modern retelling?  And that you are probably not aware that the modern world needs this story like air but the modern world absolutely needs this story like air?  Allow me to explain:

The totally awesome elaborate backstory that explains Beauty and the Beast

  • Once upon a time there was a king, a queen, and their only son
  • But while the prince was still in his infancy, in a neat reversal of how these fairy tales usually go, the king tragically died, leaving his wife to act as Regent until their son reaches maturity
  • Unfortunately, the rulers of all the lands surrounding them go, “Hmm, the kingdom is ruled by a woman now, it must be weak, time for an invasion!”
  • And the Queen goes, “Well, if I let some general fight all these battles for me, he’ll totally amass enough fame and power to make a bid for the throne; if I want to protect my son’s crown, I have no choice but to take up arms and lead the troops myself!
  • (Btw, I want to stress that this woman is not Eowyn or Boudica and nothing in the way her story is presented suggests that she had any interest martial exploits before or in any way came to enjoy them during these battles.  This is a perfectly ordinary court lady who would much rather be embroidering altar covers for the royal chapel and playing with her child until necessity made her go, “Oh no, this sucks, I guess I have to become a Warrior Queen now” and she just happened to kick ass at it anyway.)
  • And the Queen totally kicked ass, but the whole “twice as good for half the credit” thing meant that no matter how many battles she won, potential enemies refused to take her and her army seriously until she had defeated them so no sooner would she fend off one invasion than another one would pop up on a different border.
  • So she spent the majority of her young son’s life away from the castle leading armies, but it was OK because she left him in the care of her two best friends, who just happen to be fairies!  This was an awesome idea because a) fairies have magic, and therefore are like the best people to protect the prince from any threats and b) fairies consider themselves to be so above humanity that the lowest fairy outranks the highest mortal, so they’d have no interest in taking a human throne.  Good thing they were both good fairies instead of one good and one evil one!
  • (Spoiler:  they were not both good fairies.)
  • So the two fairies basically take turns raising the prince until he’s old enough to rule.  And on the eve of his twenty-first birthday, the evil older one comes into the prince’s bedroom.
  • “So listen, kid.  You’re about to become king, your mother’s on her way home from the war to see you crowned, and I have a third piece of good news for you!  You see, I’ve actually been spending so much time here lately because Fairyland’s become a bit too hot to hold me for reasons totally not related to me being secretly evil.  And if I have to hang in the human world, I might as well reside in the upper echelons of it, so even though as a powerful fairy I completely eclipse your puny human status in a staggeringly unimaginable way, since you’re about to be king and since my premonition that I should stick this whole guardianship thing out because you would be hot one day has totally proved accurate (go me), I will graciously lower myself to allowing you to marry me.  Please feel free to grovel at my feet in gratitude.  (Btw, we can totally start the wedding night now, we’ll tell your mother about it when she arrives tomorrow.)”

Is There a Goalie In the House? (Alex Galchenyuk)

Anonymous said:

First your writing is amazing. Second, Could you please do an Alex Galchenyuk imagine where he is dating a female hockey goalie and she surprises him at one of his games by being announced with the team during line up or something? Maybe some fluff? Thank you!

Word count: 2398

Author’s note: I don’t often enjoy my writing, in terms of me reading it again after I’ve written it, but I really enjoyed this one. This goes out to all my ladies out there. You can do anything, so long as you think you can.

Originally posted by b-gallagher11

You were a little self-conscious about dating Alex. You loved him, of course, but it was just weird to you to be dating a hockey player when you, yourself, are also a hockey player. You worry that people think you’re dating him to get a spot on the team, or other such fears. Even though you know they’re baseless fears, you can’t help but to worry at least a little bit.

Alex, however, thinks it’s totally hot that you’re a hockey player. He thinks it’s even hotter that you’re a goalie. Goalies are the ones who take all of the hits and carry their teams on their backs. Alex loves how tough you are on the ice, how you never flinch, no matter how many pucks you face on a given night. He always jokes how you could beat Carey in a shootout easily. Although you’d never tell Alex, you’d love to play on the same team as him, one day. Even though you know that it’s obviously never going to happen, you can’t help but to dream.

That is, until you get the call.

You’ve just gotten dressed in your street clothes after a really productive practice. The team worked really hard today and you all feel ready for the game tomorrow. As you gather your things into your bag, you notice your phone start to go off. Even though it’s not saved in your phone, it’s a number from the Montreal area, so you answer it. You always worry that if you don’t answer the phone, it’s going to be from a trainer or a hospital telling you that Alex is hurt.

“Hello?” You answer, waving goodbye to your teammates as you head out of the locker rooms.

“(Y/N) (Y/L/N)?” A deep voice asks. Your blood runs cold, assuming the worst.

“This is she. May I ask who’s calling?”

“(Y/N), this is Coach Julien. Let me just start off by saying that Alex is perfectly fine.” You breathe a sigh of relief at his statement, letting out a shaky laugh.

“You know hockey girlfriends too well, Coach. What’s the reason for this call?” You ask politely.

“Well, Montoya’s sick and he’s not going to be able to play tonight. Our emergency goalie’s wife just had a kid, so he’s on leave, and we can’t get anyone from St. John or Brampton up here fast enough. Would you be able to fill in as backup goalie tonight?” Coach Julien asks hopefully. Your eyes widen as you silently squeal.

skateboards and snapbacks: part two

so the other day i posted part one of this au, which at that time was untitled, because i didn’t expect it to garner any attention at all. and then it turned out to be the most popular piece of writing i’ve ever posted on tumblr. so i don’t really know what to say, apart from thank you! i hope that you enjoy the follow up just as much as you did the start.

shoutout to ananbeth who by total fluke knew exactly where this was going (and whose fic helped inspire this in the first place). i can guarantee that the rest of your tags will also hold true, eventually.


Despite her better judgment, Annabeth told Piper about her encounter with the hot skateboarding stranger. The more she talked about it the more idiotic she felt, and the more unattainable he seemed to become. Piper was of an entirely different opinion, her eyes lighting up at the mere mention of her friend meeting a guy. She was probably already planning double dates with her and her crush Jason by the time Annabeth had finished the tale.

“How many Percys can there be at this school?” Piper said brightly. “He can’t be too hard to find.”

“I’m probably never going to see him again,” Annabeth said, aiming for casual indifference and instead hitting sad desperation. She sighed. “I made an idiot of myself, anyway, it’s probably for the best -”

“Whoa, wait, did Annabeth just call herself an idiot? What’s going on in there? Is the world ending?” Rachel stuck her head around her bedroom door, one earbud dangling in her hand and charcoal smudged across her cheek.

Annabeth huffed. “I did not call myself an idiot. I meant that I acted like an idiot.”

Yuna Gunner’s Ponytail Thing!

I’m finally doing a new tutorial! It’s only been like, I don’t know, a year? But new year, new cosgoals! I almost gave up this hobby last year just because I was broke and directionless and lost in the heinous void that was 2016, but the abstract concept of a new year beginning somehow resonated value with me and here we are.

Here’s how to make Yuna Gunner from Final Fantasy’s super long ponytail from scrap material, and how to make it pose-able, using about $10 worth of material.

Canon is shit, so have some AUs (Pt. 2)

The second part of my collection of Ian x Mickey AUs. Read them, love them, and give thanks to the fic writers for blessing us with these treasures.

Make it Alone, or Keep a Straight Face by tinydancer
Mickey’s a sarcastic, cynical piece of shit and he knows it. The last thing he wants to do is go out searching for his perfect match like so many with his little unique ability end up doing. Apparently, anything red and above 85 is considered soul mate material. Mickey had laughed out loud when he read that one. (soulmates AU)

My Stars by CallieB
Something’s gone wrong with the world, and the stars are going out. Mickey doesn’t know why, and frankly he doesn’t give a shit; his life has never felt more empty, more worthless. He can’t shake the feeling that there’s something missing - a life he was supposed to have led, someone he was meant to have met, voices in his head saying things that never happened… And then Lip freaking Gallagher is in front of him, telling him that it’s his fault the stars are disappearing. He was supposed to be with Lip’s little brother, but he did it wrong - and now he has to go back in time and change the past to the way it was meant to be.

Noisy Neighbours by brazenlyunabashedlyshamelessly
Twist on the ‘Could you please move your bed a little further from the wall, I’m trying to work’ AU.
“After going through one cup, and making it halfway through a second, Mickey decided that this was bullshit. He lived here, too; he paid his goddamn rent on time. There was no reason why he had to listen to his douche face neighbour fuck some chick so hard Mickey’s walls shook.”

Of Burgers and Briefcases by horror_business
Keep in mind that Ian doesn’t get flustered easily, he’s a lawyer for god sake he has to be confident and strong willed, but this guy gave him butterflies in his stomach immediately. Pale, dark hair, piercing artic blue eyes and scowl painted firmly across his face. He was intimidating and fucking gorgeous in all the right ways and Ian couldn’t fucking concentrate. What was he ordering? What the fuck is he doing with his hands? What do people do with their hands?! Is he staring? He’s staring.
Or the one where Mickey owns a food truck and Ian is a love struck idiot.

Pleasantly Caving by wehangout
“I don’t want them to know yet,“ you tell him. "I want … I want this, you and me, to stay ours for a while longer.” (domestic fluffy AU)

Restoration by pink_ink

Saltimbocca Saturday’s by horror_business
Bella Sorna was a new up and coming Italian restaurant in the North Side of Chicago. They had been in business for two years now and their notoriety kept going up and up. Ian has been a server for three months and he enjoys it, mostly. One thing he doesn’t enjoy about working here was the irritable executive chef, Mickey Milkovich, who always seems to fuck up Ian’s dishes.

Shine by Loftec
You’ve been dead for a good long while, that’s for sure. You don’t remember how or when, but you can’t even move without being reminded that, even without the specifics, dead is undoubtedly what you are.
The first time you save someone, it’s by accident.

Slick back My Hair (You know the Devil’s in There) by wehangout
Hit-men AU where Ian and Mickey make a great team and are maybe totally a little bit hot for each other. After Ian gets shot Mickey is forced to confront his feelings for his partner in crime, and deal with the fact that someone out there is trying to kill Ian, the one person he’ll do anything to protect.

South Side’s Bonnie & Clyde by badtothebinding
An Ian/Mickey Bonnie & Clyde AU fic inspired by their honey trap in episode 4x09.
Ian and Mickey have been terrorizing the North Side, luring creepy douche bags into back alleys and helping themselves to their cash. But how long can they keep it up before running into trouble?

tell me we weren’t just friends by daggertattoos
prompt fill: dude we’re bros and stuff but honestly i don’t think i can look at you changing in the locker rooms anymore man i don’t want to be your bro no more (high school AU)

Test Run by the_rat_wins
The daughter of the Atraxen system’s richest glitterstim merchant has been kidnapped. The Jedi Council’s newest knight has taken it upon himself to rescue her, unaware that a dangerous bounty hunter is already on her trail.
(Star Wars AU; Ian is a new Jedi struggling to find mental and emotional balance through the Force, and bounty hunter Mickey just wants to finish the job and collect his reward. Until he doesn’t.)

The Hills; 1914 by inanatticinnovember
Mikhail, a lonely Ukrainian fisherman come to Northern Ireland, is in love with the sea. If he’s going to be honest, it’s probably the only thing he thinks he’ll ever really love. And then he comes across a day dreamy wistful Irish farm boy named Ian who won’t shut up and won’t stop moving and Mikhail finds himself carelessly running after him, unable to slow down, unable to stop falling for his eyes like green hills. And maybe he gets a little too caught up. But for a summer, everything is fine and nothing hurts.

The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Ian Gallagher by Shamelessquestions
"It’s fuck all about heat or chemistry or any such shit, Gallagher. You and me… it’s just a thing that cannot happen. The sooner we both accept that, the better off we’ll be.” (mobster AU)

The Sum of All Its Factors by missmichellebelle
“Can someone use surly in a sentence?”
“Is it true that you’re dating the surly Mr. Milkovich?”
Well, at least she used the vocab word, Ian can’t help but think. (high school teacher AU)

The Wedding Planner by BeckyHarvey29
Wherein Ian is getting married, and Mickey pretends to be a wedding planner.

To Let Go by anomalously
Being Rabid meant you were weak. It got you caught, got you killed because you couldn’t control yourself. You had to surrender to gain control, part of the give and take nature of the beast. For Mickey, it was one serious bitch to try to conquer… his body just wouldn’t give in. (werewolf!Mickey/Milkoviches; witch!Ian/Gallaghers)

Touched by Avalonia
Ian Gallagher is just another drone in a call center full of them, with nothing to his name but a slow computer that hates his guts, a head full of voices that may or may not be real, and an unshakable reputation as a headcase. Funny how Mickey Milkovich, the grumpy guy from IT, doesn’t seem to care about any of that.
An (a)typical office romance with a bit of a twist.

Trust me by Loftec
Mr Milkovich is a certified weirdo, but he also happens to be a certified accountant and not half bad at his job, considering his relatively low rates. So Ian guesses he can live with the weird midnight meetings and the abrasive correspondence. The good looks is a considerable bonus.
And the pointy teeth turn out to be less of a problem than one would imagine.

Two Can’t Keep a Secret by BeckyHarvey29
Ian and Mickey are secretly fooling around. Mandy wants to set Mickey up with someone. Ian doesn’t like that. (secret lovers AU)

Under Hill, Under Sky by the_rat_wins
Exiled from his father’s court of goblins and monsters, Mickey lives alone in the woods, until he stumbles upon Ian, an injured knight belonging to the Seelie Court (the bright immortals who are his father’s worst enemies).

With Rough, Unsteady Lines by missmichellebelle
Mickey draws skulls, and dragons, and one time he drew a pretty sweet gun, but it’s just something he does because he’s bored. It’s not like he enjoys it, or whatever. (artist!Mickey AU)

Wrap Me Up In a Bolt of Lightning by enc0432
World War II AU where Ian and Mickey meet at Camp Taccoma, training to be paratroopers. I’m borrowing pretty heavily from Band of Brothers which is why the boys are in Easy Company. I could not get the idea out of my head of Mickey being a combat medic.

You will always fall in love, and it will always be like having your throat cut, just that fast by anythingbutgrief
They used to have magic. Their family did, anyway, long ago, way before their mother and her family had come to this country, before the Yugoslav wars, before the state had existed to begin with. It was stronger before the Empire had fallen, before the first war, his great-grandmother used to murmur when he was little, rubbing her paper-dry hands together like she could conjure her lost magic back through the heat of friction, her wrinkled face bunched into a permanent scowl. Mickey was tiny then, couldn’t have been older than four or five, but he remembered wondering even then why Terry only glared at her from across the room instead of screaming at her to shut the fuck up, like he would have done if it had been Mickey’s mom doing the talking. (soulmates AU)

Hey, this is probably a weird question but I've been thinking about making a (side)blog where I can post about feminism and I don't? Really know where I'd begin? There was such drama among several radfem blogs and I don't want to end up running into the middle of a mine field because I'm new :(

Well up you’re definitely on the right track for making it a side and not your main haha. I would not worry way too much about specific users and focus more on the messages you’re putting out there. A radfem can turn out to be an ass, but like posts are posts, and if they are speaking truth then that’s, I hate to use this word, ~valid~. 

I don’t really watch who I repost from, which might be a bad idea in hindsight, but I also don’t buy into the drama. You don’t have to participate, and if anons start trying to get on you about drama you can literally ignore that shit. Radfem drama is totally overrated, and it’s generally best to just keep doing you and doing your content. 

I can totally recommend you some radfem and radfem-leaning blogs that I generally reblog from like @anarchistmermaid is a pretty cool cat, also into biology/medicine and whatnot. @clittymcgee changes her username a lot and sometimes get into drama but she’s fun, same with @lowkey-radical & @radical-sloth, @spencer-shayy. I don’t really converse with these blogs but I also think they’re cool @aawb, @acatnamedsylvesterf, @appropriately-inappropriate gets REAL into the discourse but I totally follow that but it might be a bit too hot for someone trying to stay out of it, @genderatheism is coolio jones too & detransitioned so her insights can be awesome. I also follow @lesbian-lizards, @dykessociation and some others.

I used to have similar fears, anon, but most of the drama is either petty or just plain dumb, and participation is far from necessary. Good luck out there, be open to learning new things and occasionally changing your views, and feel free to reach out to other radfems because so far I haven’t encountered a single one I wouldn’t want to at least get coffee with. 

Hope I could be helpful!

Watch on

☾♡ ♥(with s/o)♦☯♒ ☼ ൠ for Monet, Gladius and Mihawk? Kisses~~~

Kisses? Oh my goodness (。♥‿♥。)  

(✿ ♥‿♥) kisses right back ‘atcha darling!


  • Sleep

Monet stays up super late just puttering around. You know how you can spend hours literally doing nothing and have no idea how or even what you did?? Yeah, she does that all the time (even though she’d never admit it). When Monet goes to sleep she’ll wear a nightgown and put her hair in a messy braid. Her bed is actually just a giant bird perch. If she’s sleeping with an s/o, she’ll tuck them under her wings and let them rest their head on her chest.

  • Romantic

Monet can dish out flirty comments, but omg she cannot take them back. She’ll throw a compliment at a cutie in a heartbeat, but the minute they compliment her back, she’s all blushes and giggles. When she’s trying to woo somebody, she’ll give leave little gifts lying around. Then she’ll hide and watch their reaction (stalker harpy). Dates with her would be filled with playful flirting and catty remarks (Monet can get a little vicious so be on your toes).

  • Family (with s/o):

If Monet ever had a family, it’d be super interesting. She doesn’t exactly have a motherly instinct despite Sugar and the children (it’s all just an act). She’d only have a child if her s/o asked for one. She’d be the type to see her kid fall and she’d yell “walk it off champ!” (much to her s/o’s horror). She’d have to slowly warm up to the baby. Mommy Monet is super good at reading bed time stories as long as she grabs the right one (no Monet a 500 page novel is not something you read to a child go grab one of the picture books). Seeing her child’s face light up as she read would make her truly happy.

  • Quirks/Hobbies

Sometimes Monet forgets she’s not wearing glasses. She’ll go to push them up her nose, but there’s nothing there so she just kinda pokes herself in the forehead. Law saw her do it one time and she was so flipping embarrassed!!

  • Likes/Dislikes

Monet likes playing with/manipulating others. Messing with the people around her amuses her to no end. 

Monet doesn’t like when the children bug her. Sure she can manipulate them (and she’s damn good at it), but they’re still really annoying. 

  • Cooking/Food

Monet isn’t the best cook ever, but she can make simple dishes. When it comes to eating, she’s really picky. She used to not be, seeing as where she came from, but now that she’s part of the Donquixote family she can afford to choose what she eats (and she takes full advantage of that). She’s real big into fruit and veggies (and not that big into meat). 

  • Appearance

Monet isn’t vain, but she definitely takes pride in her appearance. Daily hygiene is super important to her. Her morning ritual takes about 3 hours (much to Caesar’s displeasure). Sometimes she has bad hair days (there’s like one hair out of place calm down) and it ruins her whole day.

  • Random

Monet is a giant people watcher. Back when she worked at the palace she could just watch everyone for hours on end. How other people go about their daily lives is just entirely fascinating to her. And she’ll never complain when there’s a bit of drama (she feeds off that crap).

Gladius (he’s totally super hot under that mask I just know it)

  • Sleep

Gladius gets super cranky if he doesn’t get his beauty sleep (lol he’s always cranky tho). Going to sleep is one of the very few times he doesn’t wear his mask. He’ll usually wear a bro tank and his boxers (he doesn’t get hot all that easily but come on man it’s Dressrosa). He’s totally fine just sleeping by himself. If he has an s/o, it’s up to them to cuddle (he’s not all that insistent on it, if you want it, you gotta get it). He’s like a chicken in that he goes to bed and wakes up with the sun (incoming rooster jokes from Diamante).

  • Romantic

Romance is a foreign concept to him. He sees couples out and about hanging onto each other and he’s the type of person to go “eww get your feelings away from me nobody wants to see that shit”. Once he finally falls in love with somebody, he won’t feel quite as harsh about it (but he still thinks PDA is hecka grody). Don’t expect much from the emotionally-constipated baby. He’ll take you out to dinner and stuff, albeit reluctantly (so you’re definitely going to have to take control of the relationship).

  • Family (with s/o):

The fact that he actually has a legit biological family just freaking blows his mind! He always thought his life would be centered around the Donquixote family. Also, somebody fell in love with him? And he loves them?? (woah bro) At first he wouldn’t know how to act having another family. As time went on he’d grow more and more attached to his family (might cause some problems with Doflamingo later on). 

  • Quirks/Hobbies

Gladius is actually a pretty chill guy. Yeah, I know it sounds weird, but it’s only outside sources that tick him off. If it was just him, he’d be the chillest dude ever. The rest of the family is what sets him off (hehe sets him off). Also, let it be known Oda-sensei said his penis could explode. Do what you will with that  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 

  • Likes/Dislikes

He likes nice, calm evenings with a cup of tea, a good book, and maybe some nice background music. He also enjoys having a drink or two with Doflamingo and their nightly chats. When it’s just him and his young master he feels like he’s getting special treatment.

Really loud and annoying people. Anyone who angers Doflamingo. And toys. He just doesn’t like the toy people. He thinks they’re all idiots.

  • Cooking/Food

Have you ever seen a bowl of cake batter blow up? Would you like to see a bowl of cake batter blow up? Just hit up Gladius. The poor baby can’t even boil water.

  • Appearance

To walk around in Dressrosa’s temperatures wearing that, you gotta have a serious sense of fashion. Gladius takes pride in his choice of fashion, and he flaunts it like all the time. “Steampunk is hella cool, so I must be too, right.”-actual quote I swear

  • Random

Family game night always gets intense when Gladius is there. He gets super competitive over the simplest games. Sometimes family game night even gets a little…explosive hehe.

Mihawk (Presiding Chairman of the Hot Dad League)

  • Sleep

Sleep is super important to him. Sleep is what gets you ready for the next day (and slicing up stuff). DO NOT DISTURB WHILE NAPPING!! Y’all all saw what happened!! Mihawk will wear a robe to bed, just boxers underneath. He never ever comes out of his room in it (unless it’s an emergency and it was only that one time Perona screamed and it turned out she just scared herself; next time she screamed he just ignored her). Mihawk’s bed only has two pillows, he thinks decorative pillows are annoying and they only get in his way. If he has an s/o, they’ll be held in his protective arms throughout the night. If he wakes up and he doesn’t feel them there, he’ll probably go searching for them (super protective hawk).

  • Romantic

LITERALLY THE MOST ROMANTIC MAN EVER!! You would never guess it by looking at him and how he is, but if he met the right person he would woo the frick out of them, lemme tell ya. The first time he ever spoke to you, he’d take your hand, lean down, and place a kiss on it, all while looking deeply into your eyes (hypnotizing oh man). Late night chats by the fireside with wine. Fancy dinners at expensive restaurants (he actually just prefers cooking with you in the castle, but he’ll go out if you want to). Slicing giant ships in half. Midnight strolls on the beach. (one of those is not like the others, one of those is super violent and may cause potential deaths) He puts the “man” in romance.

  • Family (with s/o)

A family was never in his plans, but if he ever had one, you can bet they’d be his main priority. His fatherly affections would be reserved, but he’d still be a good dad (don’t expect lots of kisses and hugs). His child(ren) would definitely learn how to defend themselves at an early age. If he had a son, he’d make sure they would be there to defend their other parent in case of his absence. His s/o might not like that he’s away on business a lot, but that makes him coming home all the more special (and he definitely makes up for being gone that night *wink wonk*).

  • Quirks/Hobbies

Mihawk enjoys playing guitar in his spare time. He even sings too. He’d never play around anyone (except his s/o on occasion), it’s one of his personal hobbies. When they were younger, Shanks would always bug him to play for him. When he finally conned him into doing it, Shanks would sing along (off key of course).

  • Likes/Dislikes

Mihawk loves having time to just relax with himself and have a nice glass of wine. He’s very introspective and also enjoys watching what is going on in the world. He keeps an eye on up and coming pirates (he doesn’t think of them as a threat) but it’s always good to be knowledgeable about a potential enemy.

He can’t stand it when weak little pissbabies come after him trying to take him on. There’s a clear difference in power levels here (do you want to die that badly?). 

  • Cooking/Food

Mihawk’s been living in that castle all alone for a good long while. He definitely knows how to take care of himself. Once he got the hang of things, he started experimenting with various recipes and now he’s actually a really good cook. Some of the meals might be a little weird, but they’re still super good (and there will be wine of course). He really enjoys cooking for/with his s/o. It’s a simple domestic way to bond with them that he’d never thought he would ever experience (he also thinks they’re super cute when they’re working with their hands). 

  • Appearance

Mihawk’s appearance is important to him. He’s not one to dress gaudily (*cough* Doflamingo *cough*) but he definitely has to dress for his status. Being who he is, he’s a legend and he dresses accordingly. He’s super good with swords, ergo he’s super good with razors, thus the facial hair. It’s one of his defining features and he takes pride in it.

He may not say it, but he actually enjoys Perona and Zoro living with him. They give him a nice distraction from his usual boredom (and loneliness). He especially enjoys it when they’re all in the same room doing their own thing. Perona will be sewing, Zoro will be cleaning a sword, and Mihawk will be reading (then somebody says something and the two children of the household will start fussing at each other and Perona starts throwing jabs at Zoro and Zoro starts yelling and then Mihawk questions why he allows them to live there).


Remember when this was one of the best Zalfie videos ever…

When I first started playing Sunless Sea (and then Fallen London) I got really confused about the possibility of my character losing his soul. A few times I tried to find out why it was a bad thing. When I accidentally lost it to the (totally hot) Quiet Deviless I sat for a bit waiting to see if something would happen. It wasn’t til I got a card giving me the option to mope or celebrate about being soulless that I realised what was going on. Soullessness isn’t regarded as a definitively good or bad thing in Fallen London -  its just a thing that can happen. Any importance you place on it is entirely up to you, which I find to be a fascinating response to any irl discussion about the possible existence of a human soul. 
So thanks for making me think failbetter.

What really kills me…are the freckles

His sweet sweet freckles.

So glad they didn’t photoshop those out.

Pirates and Princesses (an Icing on the Cake one-shot)

A/N: I promised to revisit this Universe and I finally had time. I may have gotten bit carried away, as this one veers into “M” rated territory. If you are new to this little story, you can start from the beginning on Tumblr and This can also be probably be read as a stand-alone, just imagine Emma owning a bakery, living in blissful love with one Killian Jones. Total fluff alert.

He tucked his hand into the plastic, wrapping his fingers around the handle to keep the hook in place. The vinyl of his long jacket was warm, but completed the outfit too perfectly not to wear. The one piece he refused to don, however, was still in the bag and would never see the light of day. Giving himself one last glance in the mirror he smirked at his ownreflection, memories of long ago Halloweens and daydreaming of sailing the high seas coming to the forefront of his mind.

As he made his way down the back stairs he braced himself for the onslaught that would ensue once he joined the madness. The sounds of laughter and music enveloped him as he peeked his head around the door, giving himself a moment to take in the scene in front of him before joining the fray.

She was lovely. His beautiful Swan, her floor length red gown billowing out from underneath her apron, was beaming like the sun as she leaned over to help one of her tiny guests with her rose. He watched the little girl wearing a long blonde wig look up at her in awe, her tiny hands reaching up to twine her fingers into one of Emma’s curls. The smile bestowed on the girl in response by his love took his breath away, his mind reeling to a future when it would be their child looking at her like that, begging for her attention.

massive crush

“Dr. Shepherd?” A intern asked. She turned her head towards him. “For the procedure, you would want to cut through the cerebellum to split the brain but allow for normal function. It would stop the seizures and allow full responsiveness from brain to muscle coordination.” He said shakily.

“Are you asking or telling?” Amelia asked.

The young intern gulped. “Telling.” He replied.

“Then yes, that’s exactly right. Nice job..” She asked looking at the name tag. “Noah.” She said with a smile. Owen watched over as she taught the intern, admiring the focus and determination in her eyes. Not to mention her legs peaking out from the short dress she had to wear for a meeting earlier. Noah and his intern buddies whispered in the back.

“Dude, she’s so into you. You answered that question and she totally bit her lip. It was so hot.” They laughed. Noah smirked and looked back at Amelia. Owen stepped behind him and Amelia looked up and smile at Owen. Noah and his friends mistook her look for being aimed at Noah and snickered again. Amelia let the interns go for the day and Owen strayed at the back of the room. Noah and his friends peeked through the doors as they told Noah to go get her and get some tonight.

“Dr. Shepherd, I’m in need of extra credit.. Any idea how I could get some?” Owen teased from the back of the room.

“Hmm.. I think I could think of something.” Amelia grinned walking towards him. His hands snaked under her lab coat and down to her butt as she laughed and kissed him.

“Want to hear something funny?” He smiled against her lips.

“Always do.” She smiled pulling away slightly.

“That kid that was sitting in the back has a total crush on you. His friends think he should try to get with you.” Owen said.

Amelia laughed. “What? Seriously? Did you hear them say that?”

“Word for word. You’re so hot and totally into him.” He winked.

“Is that jealousy I hear?” Amelia smiled. “Maybe I should go for him..” She teased.

“He’s staring from outside the door, so nows your chance.” He grinned. She turned her head towards the door and saw Noah and his friends as they quickly ducked.

“I could run off and get him… But I don’t think he’s my type. I happen to have a massive crush on someone else.” She smiled.

“Oh really? Do I know him?” He played along.

“You might. He’s tall, very muscular.. Extremely handsome. Good with his hands… In EVERY way possible.” She bit her lip. He laughed and shook his head playfully.

“Probably some male nurse.” He joked shrugging his shoulders.

“Probably some cute, ginger trauma Doctor.” Amelia grinned slipping from his grip and walking back towards the front of the room. He looked up her pale legs and towards her ass as she strutted away and grinned to himself. He ran up from behind her and bear hugged her, trapping her in his embrace and kissing her neck and shoulder.

“So massive crush I hear?” He chuckled into her ear. He loosened his grip and she turned to face him.

“Pretty massive.” She smiled running her hands on his tie he wore. “I should tell him to wear ties more often.”

“Why’s that?” He asked, his breathing growing heavier as her small hands fiddled with the fabric.

“So I can do this.” She smiled tugging on his tie and pulling him down towards her as she kissed him passionately.

“I should tell my massive crush to wear dresses that show off her legs more often then.” He said in between kisses. “Then I can do this.” He said running his hands up her legs and picking her up from under her bare thighs. She giggled as he put her on the edge of a desk. He kissed her and she hung onto his dark tie and opened her legs for him to move in between.

“There are on-call rooms for that.” Maggie coughed walking into the room. They both looked at her as the door closed and Owen gave an apologetic smile as Amelia hopped off the desk.

“Maggie I don’t cock block you when you’re with Deluca.” Amelia huffed fixing her dress. Maggie rolled her eyes.

“Thanks for the promise of not saying anything.” She sighed motioning towards Owen.

“Oh please half the hospital knows because you guys suck at keeping secrets.” Amelia laughed grabbing Owen’s hand and walking out with him towards an on-call room. His pager went off as she was about to open the door and she sighed letting go of his hand.

“Later?” He said tilting his head dreamily at her. She couldn’t help the smile that grew at the small action and nodded at him. He kissed her cheek and backed up and turned to walk towards the ER.

“Hey, my crush has a pretty nice ass too.” She chuckled. He lifted his lab coat and stuck his butt out at her. She giggled and shook her head as he turned the corner and went to his page.
