this has been in my drafts forever so

like i have my problems with harry potter and jk rowling but it will never stop meaning something to me that rowling was a depressed 30-year single mother living on welfare when she thought of this story, that she was – in her own words– at rock bottom and she managed to put herself out there, to create this brilliant amazing series that has impacted so many people’s lives. there’s something to be said for hope.

i found this post in my drafts and have ZERO memory of writing it (thank u alcohol) so im gonna put it in my queue lol
  • ok but imagine 
  • Bitty comes out to his parents but he doesn’t tell them about Jack, thinks it’s for the best, maybe to ease his parents into things or maybe to keep the pool of People Who Know as small as possible 
  • and like yeah Ransom and Holster are super oblivious but Suzanne Bittle is not, not when it comes to her son, because she is a certified Nosy Southern Mother and she can see he’s been acting differently, happier but quieter, always on his phone and blushing when she asks about boys
  • and he talks about the team a LOT 
  • Jack’s one of his best friends and he’s just started his NHL career, so of course Bitty’s never gonna shut up about Jack
  • (Same goes for Shitty and law school. And eventually Ransom and med school. Dicky is proud of his friends and wants everyone to know. He gets that trait from Suzanne, she understands)
  • but he keeps talking about this one Boy, how sweet he is and how his smile is like a sack of puppies and how bitty’s always making this boy do things with him like baking and getting froyo and going shopping and Suzanne is like. Yes. This must be Dicky’s secret boyfriend. 
  •  the next family weekend or whatever, Suzanne demands to meet this Chowder boy who’s stolen Bitty’s heart
  • Bitty is both confused and mortified

Sterek AU | Cornerstone by Vendelin (fic rec)

Suffering from PTSD, ex-Marine Derek Hale moves back to Beacon Hills to open a bookshop and find a calmer life. That’s where he meets Stiles, completely by accident. Stiles is talkative, charming and curious. Somehow, despite the fact that he’s blind, he’s able to read Derek like no one else.

Beach-y Joseph things:

•His hair tousled by the wind constantly, it’s got that coarse salty sea spray consistency after being out on the boat all day
•Lounging around in just a brightly colored, unbuttoned Hawaiian shirt and swim trunks
•Lazy days laying around in a hammock on the beach, margarita sitting beneath him in the sand
•No matter how much sunscreen he applies he’s going to turn a faint shade of red by the end of the week and MC has to come thru with that sweet sweet aloe vera gel
•Getting really excited about finally having reservations for Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville restaurant
•Going into those overpriced seaside gift shops to look for an anchor souvenir to take back home
•Driving along the board walk, windows down, The Beach Boys on full volume
•Feeling nostalgic and renting a surf board like the good ol’ days, but wiping out more than he’d like to admit
•Getting dragged into a game of beach volleyball but he’s really bad at it
•Having a vacation diet that consists of mostly lobster, fruity beverages, and dessert
•Keeping Christian and Christie from tormenting the washed up jellyfish on the beach
•Taking the MC out to a fancy restaurant on the water
•Getting up early to watch the sunrise over the ocean
