this has to be one of the most beautiful pictures of her

Mercury ~ a little Goddess told me

Mercury in Aries: The girl who falls asleep with a headache mercury in aries is a refreshing, young, inquisitive and desiring energy. they have a childlike intrigue in just about anything and imagine themselves as different characters in different stories. the reflex to provocation can be rapid fire defence and critically wounding verbal delivery. there is a short attention span, but they learn quickly - largely too because they are not afraid to ask questions and follow the detour of distraction, and look for answers in every opportunity that promises an explanation.  here is considerable raw energy combusting inside this active, restless, and animated mind. mercury in aries knows how to get conversation started, and better yet - they know how to keep people amused and engaged. they can be under performers in school, and not due to lack of intelligence but rather lack of stimulation, distraction, and resistance to teachers

Mercury in Taurus: The girl whose mind grows a garden when comfortable, mercury in taurus people can become very pressured to tap into a never ending supply of energy for conversation. but sometimes they can feel too awkward around new environments, mentally lazy, lethargic, tired, or uninspired by the discussion. these people share most of their greatest and most beautiful thoughts in their private diary, songbook, or blog. it’s like they have to be away from the dense energy of other people so they can feel free to wonder and whip words like buttermilk cream. to onlookers the mental process can seem slow, but the mind has a rich, active, and continuous activity that co-ordinations information through creative and rational dynamics to extract useful resource, skills, and intellectual capital. this mind is habitual by nature and they can find a sort of quiet delight or satisfaction in the solitary practice and rehearsal of their natural talents. the appetite and desire for food and culinary gratification can be strongly influenced by psychological balance and wellbeing, nerves, and loneliness.

Mercury in Gemini: The girl that was talking to Hermes when she was three minutes old mercury in gemini people have quick comebacks and love to playfully tease and weave complex webs with words. their forgetfulness can be a form of freedom and inconvenience. there is a constant intake of information and automatic disintegration of short term and emotional memory, personal and monotonous details - basically anything that consumes the brain space where facts and knowledge should be. this process clears and provides another bookshelf for new information. it can create the intriguing combination of someone with  composite and clever intelligence who faces significant challenges in basic principles like punctuality, remembering to eat, day to day planning, attention to detail, focus, and applicable common sense. they can be devouring information about a new intellectual fascination and completely unaware that the sun is rising. there is little concept of time when there is so much domination of mind. mercury in gemini people can command the conversation, but this is very much to everyone’s delight. they can blend comedy, conspiracies, and current affairs into one amusing interplay  

Mercury in Cancer: The girl who went to school on the moon the emotional state will be evident in the tone of voice. the cancer qualities of reticence, side-stepping, and withdrawing are not really encouraged to develop by mercury. it can make for quite a comical and slanted perspective and portrayal, a rapid fast verbal defence to threat or antagonism, and the ability to direct emotion into the opponent’s weak spots with critically wounding words. they can love to learn from picture books. as adults, these people can enjoy biographies, human stories, and keeping a journal of memories. mercury in cancer can make a great teacher. the cancer mother can see students as children and nurture through educating a new generation, the inner child present in the moon that rules cancer finds creative and inspiring ways to relate and deliver the message. these people are more receptive of body language than what is actually being said. they will quickly establish if someone in the conversation is uncomfortable. unexpressed emotion becomes mental contamination  

Mercury in Leo: The girl with a lion on the loose through her mind there is never a dull moment inside this mind. but they have a very day and night experience. thoughts can roar like a valiant lion in the day, radiating supreme pride in thoughts, intellectual creativity and talent, and personal convictions. but by night the sun is gone and so has this part of the mind, the crown has fallen, the protective lion is asleep, and the baby cubs become trapped in the cage of replaying moments of shame, self-consciousness, and regressive need to have troubles responded to and soothed through conversation. they identify closely withe mind, so there can be an uplifting and lifelong elevation of confidence when validated by a teacher, certificate, degree, or academic. they can feel ravenously devoured by psychological darkness, and their hope and resilience is a burning light of redemption. mercury in leo honours the mind through learning and achieving personal best results, imaginative writing, creative verbal demonstration, and experimenting with different mental characters

Mercury in Virgo: The girl who was born to think mercury in virgo is always operating from part of the mind, it has an orderly style of automatic consistency. it refuses to stop operating regardless of circumstance, it can be difficult for the person to fall asleep, push thoughts aside, and remain focused in their environment with relentless chatting and discourse, order, disorder, and constant intellectual arranging taking place in the background. even though mercury is the ruler of virgo, there can be so much mental activity and brilliance that there can be black outs and catastrophic breakdown like a tangle in the wiring that can make them stumble over their words, become overcome with nerves or paralysis in public speaking or answering a question, or say something different to what they were thinking. they may not like to study, but the feeling of being unprepared and failing is worse

Mercury in Libra: The girl that could read your mind mercury in libra people are active and charming conversationalists. they are intelligent and they can discuss just about anything with ease - except themselves. these people are very skilled at personal observation and reading body language. this is largely because they have spent a lot of time being so mentally overwhelmed and so paralysed by their environment that they are unsure what they should do. so they watch the people around them and try to replicate their actions. maybe they even laugh or just because other people are laughing, or take on a different accent or vocabulary. they may have practiced this at school with classmates when they were distracted by daydream and missed the teacher’s instruction. mercury in libras can spend a lot of time confined inside the mind self-reflecting, wondering whose inside, and analysing their thoughts, questions, and behaviour. they constantly practice psychoanalysis on themselves and delve the responses they generate from people 

Mercury in Scorpio: The girl that can hypnotise with her eyes scorpio is always secretive by nature, but these people are not afraid to unleash when conversation is deceiving, simple-minded, ignorant, or misinforming. mercury in scorpio focus is unmatched, and they make continual transformations in how they think about. and perceive the world. thought patterns and convictions can be completely different from the person they were a year or two ago. there is an appetite to supply the mind with abundant resource of information, and knowledge is their power. mercury in scorpio does not think, learn, or interact with the world like anybody else. they are instructed in the lesson plan from unseen forces, and they seem to make contact with the right people, sources, and conversations that provide clues to their questions. there are 3 processes taking place with the intake of information. one is the process that we can see take place, a mesmerising calculation and truthful excision see in the eyes, a hesitance to trust, and contemplative listening. the 2nd is flames of personal honour and perspective. the 3rd is saturated in emotional water and throttled through the psychic beam that x-rays and executes delusion and reveals revelation

Mercury in Sagittarius: The girl who asks for answers from the world mercury in sagittarius can have a conflicted mental experience. they can see everything through 2 different eyes. there is one view from the top that compresses the whole spectacle, where they feel grand and important in the world. the other view is from a sight that feels small in a big world, surrounded and ravished by inflating details and a deceiving path seen and unseen. mercury in sagittarius people are highly responsive to environmental intellectual stimulus, winning the debate, and taking any opportunity to grow the mind. there can be a significant nervous experience with mercury in sagittarius, worries and concerns can blow enormously out of proportion and crush with an intense intellectual weight and bended prophecy. a thought can quickly inflate to unease, angst, then into fear, nerves, or panic. they have a wide-ranging sense of opportunity that makes everything seem possible. it also means that there is always the glimmer of hope that burns inside the mind 

Mercury in Capricorn: The girl that hid her mind in the closet this mind is very private and guarded, and they would often rather think something than say it out loud. they are simultaneously stimulated and threatened by information that can fragment their view of reality. they are absorbed and internally preoccupied by the constant automatic process of cataloguing and examining thoughts, information, and objectives. these people can seem difficult to trigger a response from, but you can tell if something has aroused their mind through the widened eyes and attentive focus. they like to learn through private repetition and it can be challenging to relax because they are ultra conscious of time wasting. mercury in capricorns like to finish what they start, even if they don’t really enjoy a book they will commit to reading it. these people are not as conservative as it seems. mental patterns and psychological coping mechanisms easily become habits and ritualistic attachment. it’s possible for them to adopt, maintain, and remain secretive about self-destructive practices that help them deal with the mind

Mercury in Aquarius - The girl that read upside down mercury in aquarius people will like to hear and digest information from multiple ranges of perspective and insight. they will often ask endless questions and ways for someone to explain their point of view. mercury in aquarius has great ideals and experiment with various mediums to get their point across. they identify strongly with the mind, so it can be difficult to compromise personal ideologies and convictions. they are not afraid to change their mind, but they will not subject themselves to adopt an opinion or outlook that lacks objective and subjective evidence, personal scrutiny, and a vast spectrum questions and answers. they don’t like to judge, but they can ridicule ignorance, indoctrination, and lack of substance. there is no shortage of intelligence in mercury in aquarius, but it may not have been compatible in early schooling and consequently deeply eroded confidence in themselves. it’s important for these people to find a work, social, and domestic environment that invites and celebrates their unique mind and stellar ideas

Mercury in Pisces - The girl with books filled with spilling words and ink blots from watery tear drops conversation and intellectual stimulation can be very moving and suggestive for mercury in pisces. they can be very swayed based on their subjective emotional response and their ideals, they can almost be too sensitive to the other person’s opinion. these people can be natural teachers because they have an inspiring and creative way of delivering information and they are very patient with people learning and understanding. truth is flexible based on their point of reference. they interact with their environment through the eyes of the higher mind, so immaterial, unseen, cosmic activity expands and dominates the perspective. this viewpoint appears to make the material and concrete constructs vague and obsolete by comparison. the meander of dream, daydream, and thought can seem to be more real than the lived experience. this is also one of their blessings, as it taps the person into stream of telepathy that sources intuitive information and the muse of the mind

Art School Stereotypes I’ve observed*

Animation

  • N e r d s
  • Unhealthily obsessed with video games, anime, Disney, or some sick combination of the three
  • One of the most sleep-deprived majors, but also surprisingly chipper (there are exceptions)
  • Instantly recognizable by their triforce t-shirts or Pokemon Go snapbacks
  • In spite of everything, they have the highest population of straight-edge asexuals
  • If you weren’t straight edge and celibate before, then prepare to be, because you’re about to disown all bodily urges and dedicate your life to drawing cartoon animals

Illustration

  • Like Animation majors, but cooler and much better taste in fashion. A little less tech-savvy, though
  • Comic book nerds

Painting & Drawing

  • A friend of mine once said, “People who love animation go into animation. Then they realize it’s a ton of work and switch to illustration. Then they realize THAT’S a ton of work and switch into Painting & Drawing.”
  • Highest percentage of colorful hair and weird tattoos/piercings
  • grunge
  • Listen to music you’ve never heard of
  • Smoke a LOT, asthmatics beware

Ceramics

  • Kinda stereotypical stoners or high level artsy kids, but not that pretentious 
  • Somehow even more conceptual and indie than P&D
  • Behind the ceramics building, there’s a sculpture garden of all the sculptures of students past. Every night, the campus closes at 4AM. They say it’s for security, but I say it’s because the sculptures all come to life at that point. I mean, think about it. The whole “spooky midnight hour” is so cliche, I don’t know anyone who DOESN’T stay up till midnight at least once a week. But 4AM? That’s the true witching hour. The hour that belongs only to the living sculptures (and architecture majors I guess)

Glass

  • Frankly, the least hygienic major
  • All the males and most of the females have a rank odor after being sweatily hunched over the steaming hot forges for too long
  • Might be stoners, but the chill, easy-to-hang-out-with stoners
  • Probably the most like a real family. I always walk by the Glass Studio at night and feel the breeze of warm air from their fire, catch a riff of tasteful classic rock, and hear the echoes of genuine laughter from within. It must be nice to have a home.

Jewelry

  • I dunno, I’ve never met one. They put on some sick gallery shows, though.

Graphic Design

  • In spite of Graphic Design as an art not being super emotional or indie compared to, say, Painting, the GD majors are probably some of the most tortured souls I’ve met
  • I used to be best friends/date a GD major and watched before my eyes as she was crushed by the world around her from Freshman to Junior year. Honestly I’m not sure if she still goes here. We don’t talk anymore, it’s too painful. I miss her, or rather, I miss the person she used to be. The person she used to be before Graphic Design.
  • I’m now roommates with a poor little GD Freshman, and I worry about her every day. Not as a lover like with the last one, but as a parent. What will happen to her? How long will she last? Cheyenne, if you’re reading this, run away while you still can.
  • Gets excited about fonts and kerning.
  • I don’t really know what kerning is.

Photography

  • Outdoorsy and nature loving hippies
  • The chillest major, I envy them
  • Photography IS hard work, don’t get me wrong, but come ON! You travel to a beautiful mountain spring, snap a few pictures, and call it a day
  • Never need to pull all-nighters
  • Seriously, I deeply respect Photography as an art and all BUT

Film

  • Some of them are also outdoorsy and nature loving hippies, the rest are hipSTERS
  • “I don’t watch ‘movies.’ I watch Films.
  • Apparently they have something of a drug problem, i.e., half the class comes in stoned
  • My friend Chris said one of the film teachers plays Porno he made in class, I’m not sure if he was messing with me or not

Architecture

  • Oh boy, Architecture
  • The coldest hearts of any major
  • The only nice Architecture majors are the first years. After that last final, something inside of them breaks. At that point they either crawl to a different major in submission, or become as sharp, straight, and lifeless as the buildings which they spend so much time designing
  • They literally do not sleep
  • Seriously, I was pulling an all-nighter last week (since the Architecture place is the only place open 24/7) and I swear to god there was an entire CLASSFULL of the Architects up and jamming from 10pm to 7am. I tried to sleep, but the Architecture majors just wouldn’t quit. Also, it was so cold there. So cold. Cold from the hearts of fifth-year Architects. I’m bringing my winter backpacking sleeping bag next time.

Industrial Design

  • Mostly foreign exchange students, especially Chinese, Indian, and Korean
  • I don’t speak Chinese, Indian, OR Korean so I can’t say much else
  • Vaguely like Architecture majors, only they appear to have a normal spectrum of human emotions 

Interactive Design

  • What is Interactive Design? Honestly I don’t really know. Like making Apps or some shmuck.
  • Tech
  • Graphic Designers who love themselves

Fashion

  • Mostly female
  • Obviously they’re very very VERY nicely dressed
  • Calm, confident, but also have fun sides

Textiles

  • Most of the textiles students I’ve met are just stop-motion loving Animators
  • I think the ones that aren’t are probably like grandmas that love knitting or something

Furniture

  • Honestly I didn’t know this was a major until like last semester
  • The only furniture major I’ve met was this Norwegian dude who looked like a greek god 
  • We were once assigned to do a group project together but then he blew me off to go surfing so I had to do it myself. Seriously? Surfing???? Like I’d be mad but that’s a cool reason to blow someone off. Hell, I’d blow people off surfing if I had the easy life of a non-animation-major

Writing

  • “We have a writing program?”
  • They’re cool though
  • Get really excited about books. I’ve read only about three or four books so I kind of just smile and nod while they talk
  • Seem genuinely interested in other people’s stories

Community Art

  • I’m not entirely sure what this is
  • Passionate about social justice and teamwork

Disclaimer: No offense to any of them (except architecture majors)

*At California College of the Arts from my relativley limited perspective as an animation major who frankly has only had minimal interactions with the others

I am immensely thankful for the talented people who have created art / edits for this story: x, x, x, x, x, x ♡ also, make sure to read moonlight (drabble from jimin’s pov) and home after rain (short sequel) after reading this story. enjoy!


You were eighteen years old when Jimin’s name showed up on your hand.

The day is fresh and clear in your memory: early December, the winds stronger than ever as they threatened to pierce through the windows of your room, hints of snowflake dancing in the air as the first snowfall augured an even sharper winter. There was a smile on your face that didn’t match the unrelenting coldness of the month, and even though the night was falling and the air felt icy on the tips of your fingers, there was only warmth in your chest as you went through the pictures of your phone.

Pictures of you and Jimin drinking hot chocolate, of clumsy iceskating, of funny faces that made you laugh out loud in the quietness of your bedroom. The feeling sparking in your chest could be considered somewhat dangerous— after all, you were just a girl that didn’t have any marks on her skin, a girl whose fate was yet to be decided. Something as enigmatic as love could be a treacherous thing, too risky for someone that couldn’t decide their destiny on their own.

Give Me Polyamorous Power Couple Hamliza Or Give Me Death

~Eliza growing up having constant crushes on both men and women and trying to articulate what she wanted to Angelica but never being able to explain it the way she wanted

~When she’s in a relationship: “I want her” “But you’re dating Peter” “I want him too” “But you have to choose” “Why do I have to choose?” When she’s not in a relationship: “Ooh, Liza’s got a crush! Spill it!” “Well, there’s Arthur and his girlfriend, and Sally and her girlfriend, and Jason, and Mary…” “Whoa whoa whoa, slow down, how many crushes can you have?” “Shush, I’m not done”

~When she meets Alexander and quickly falls into her most serious relationship ever she expects the multiple crush thing to stop (Spoiler alert: it doesn’t)

~Eliza feels like a horrible girlfriend because she’s so happy with Alex but then Susan from work will start up a conversation with her in the break room and she’s instantly all heart eyes

~Tearfully she admits it to Alex one night and he’s thrilled because “no there’s nothing wrong with you I promise!!!! You’re just polyamorous!!!!”

~They spend the rest of the night talking about it

~Eliza needs some time to adjust since she’s spent so much time trying to push it aside that she doesn’t really know what else to do but Alex is very helpful

~The first time she tells him about Susan he’s instantly chanting ask her out over and over until she’s laughing and blushing at his antics

~Half a year later and Eliza is subtly sending Alex updates from her dates while he sends her multiple thumbs up emojis and does the same with his own

~She also sets up him and Angelica and when Angelica gets confused about it she’s like you need to stop sacrificing yourself, let yourself be happy

~They share embarrassing stories about him with each other

~He meets John and them after Eliza in this one and it’s all separately

~Hercules comes first because Eliza’s father invited them to a fancy dinner party and Alex needs a suit and since he’s not well educated on these things yet she comes along to help

~Hercules is instantly smitten with Alex and Alex is instantly 😍 because “Eliza look at him!!! He looks like a damn quarterback but he’s so sweet and gentle!!!!” “Either you ask him out or I will”

~Hercules not-so-subtly likes guiding Alex around even though he thinks he’s being smooth

~“Alex there was really no point for him to put his hands on your waist like that, he could’ve told you to just move to the side one step” “… Yeah but did you see how well they fit there he could probably lift me up so easily” “Wow you’re so easy” “Do I need to bring up that cute barista the other day” “pLEASE DO WE HAVE A DATE THIS WEEKEND”

~By the end of the time there Alex is going out to lunch with a pleased but confused Hercules and Eliza is eagerly awaiting every cute picture and text

~From then on he has to deal with both Eliza and Alex stealing his clothes but he can’t really fight since they both look so cute in his sweaters

~The rest come really quickly after that

~Lafayette meets Hercules before the others because they come in requesting a special dress to be made and Hercules is Gone

~“You… You want a dress with a full skirt… But when you pick at a stitch on it the dress falls down into a ball gown?” “Yes, exactly!” “Can I ask why?” “Why? Well, chéri, it’s because I must ensure that I always am prepared for any eventuality and at the top of that list is a need to always look beautiful but entirely unattainable. Oh, that reminds me! It needs to be floor length with my being in eight-inch heels, I have a pair with me so you can measure accurately” “Oh holy shit”

~It takes them exactly one weekend to be brought into the relationship (Alex sees them and instantly is stunned into silence, Eliza flirts and within two minutes they’re already co-conspirators)

~John is next and he struggles with his sexuality and anything that comes from it so he’s very much in the closet when they meet

~John and Alex immediately are best friends and Alex tries asking him out but John very quickly refuses him and Alex takes a step back

~The combined power of the four of them helps to bring John out of his shell even though he’s very shy about it all so they’re respectful and let him suggest everything and move their relationship forward in his own time

~The first time he asks to spend the night with all of them there’s a little fight over who gets to sleep next to him

~Eliza and Hercules win, Lafayette and Alex pout

~Aaron and Theodosia Burr AKA Theo, Eliza, and Lafayette kill and the rest of them are literally powerless against them

~Dates are really fun with them because now there’s enough people to go on group dates and everyone can have a supposed other instead of it being just the mess of them (They still do it as the whole of them, its just more fun to have the people think they’re all separate couples then watch as they get more affectionate as the night goes on)

~Don’t think I’ve forgotten about the Washingtons

~George favors Alex and Laf, Martha favors Eliza, Angelica, and Theo, George is platonic with John, Hercules, Aaron, and the girls, Martha is platonic with everyone but her girls and sometimes Alex and Lafayette (She likes showing off that she’s perfectly capable of stealing them away from him but is graciously letting them stay with him. George jokes back and tries to rally Laf and Alex to joke too but they need time to come back to that plane of existence)

~WEEKEND TRIPS AT MOUNT VERNON WITH EVERYONE

~Eliza and Alex get so many kisses and cuddles since they’re the heart of it all

~Alex dragging everyone outside to look at the stars

~Lots of hot chocolate when Alex drags them outside

~Lots of spiked hot chocolate when they think Martha isn’t looking

~She totally knows since John keeps giggling but she let’s them have fun

~THOMAS JEFFERSON

~Eliza starts flirting with him to bug Alex

~Eventually she starts flirting with him for Alex no matter what he says

~“Look at the tension good god” “Betsey I swear…”

~Eliza has a near constant stream of frustrated texts from George

~“Eliza I’m suffering” “What is it this time, dear?” “They’re arguing again and they look two seconds away from making out” “I’m working on it. Have patience” “I can’t have patience anymore I can’t have meetings because this happens in every one”

~All the hate sex

~All the Jeffmads+Alex hate sex (I would include Aaron but the frustrations are over Washington but Aaron knows why Alex is favored by him and has worked out his own balance with George so he’s not jealous)

~Alex pulls them into the dynamic and they finally understand

~George doesn’t mind them finding out, he’s just glad the tension is gone (Though he has cut more than a few work days short because he walked in on them fucking on his desk because Alex wanted to tease him and he can’t handle that so he just walks out)

~There’s multiple incidents where they try to tease Angelica but she is Not Having It and takes great joy in showing them why

~Angelica Schuyler is my queen she wouldn’t handle any bullshit from them

~MARIA REYNOLDS PROTECTION SQUAD

~Elizabeth “If you touch one hair on my girl’s head I will personally kick your ass from here to California don’t test me” Schuyler

~Obviously she moves in with them immediately and spends every night sleeping between Alex and Eliza

~When things become too much in the city Eliza and her take a trip down to Mount Vernon for a girls-only retreat

~Maria and John never start a romantic relationship but they hit it off very quickly since they’re both abuse survivors (Her with James, him with his father) and John is more healed than she is but there’s wounds he’s still licking and sometimes its nice to just spend the day in silence with someone who understands that company is more important than conversation

~Eliza and Alex creating a crazy huge family for themselves which has confusing interconnecting romantic and platonic relationships but they love it so much they can’t describe it

~Whenever anyone asks about it Alex shows them the graph he’s made for them all

~Everyone has a specific color and one poor soul asks why he chose those colors and spends the next 45 minutes listening to him talking about why each of his signifs was given that very color choice

Correlations in rising sign appearance

These are just commonalities in the appearance of people with the same rising sign, of course you may have a Leo rising and not look exactly like any of the people portrayed in the post but that’s because 1) aspects to your ascendant and the rest of the chart effects appearance to! So this is mainly focusing on facial features because the 1st house rules the head. And 2) genetics :-P

Aries Rising: 

Aries risings seem to have very symmetrical faces, they have an eyebrow shape that can make them seem a bit angry or intimidating. They have small smiles, and piercing eyes like they have this pointed shape to them. One stands out here though, right? Well Shakira has Pluto opposing her ascendant, as I thought so she does appear a bit more Scorpionic than these other ladies.

Taurus Rising:

Now our beautiful Venusians. These ladies most notable commonality in their facial features is this strong facial bone structure. They also have these chins that poke out slightly. They also seem to have a face shape somewhere in between round and square.  They also seem to have a kind of earthy skin ton, even our pale Lana has some earthy undertones. 

Gemini Rising: 

Oh these Gems of ladies do appear to have a lot in common with their facial features! They seem to have longer faces, and longer noses. Wider set eyes also seem to be common. They also seem to have notable cheekbones, and a quirky sort of smile. 

Cancer Rising: 

These Cancer rising ladies all have very square and puffy faces, They also have very milky eyes and skin. They seem to also have full-ish lips.They have strong facial bone structure, as a cardinal rising should. And they have these really high cheekbones. They also seem to have thicker hair, and pursed lips.

Leo rising:

These Leonine women all seem to have rounder, softer faces. They also seem to have this skin that just… glows. Not to mention they have thicker hair. They have more leveled eyes. They have a similar width to their lips, and similar upper and lowe lip proportions. 

Virgo Rising:

It seems that these Virgoan women have a similar oval-ish face shape, a bit of a crooked smile, and similar long-ish rounded foreheads with a bit of a dent in them. They also seem to get this similar lines around their cheekbones when they smile.

Libra Rising: 

The first most noticeable commonality between these beautiful Venusian ladies is that there is a certain softness to their face, their’s no sharp features that point out or anything. Except for a slightly pointed out chin.  They also have similar, nice noses? They also have similar lips in that they are in-between thin and full lips. 

Scorpio Rising:

Well look at these beautiful Scorpionic ladies, they all have this obviously more round-ish faces. Their lips all also do this kind of pointed-folded thing when they smile, which idrk how to explain but just look at the pictures. Their cheekbones all also stand out a lot when they smile. They also all have this chin that points out a bit when they smile.

Sagittarius Rising: 

Beautiful Sagittarius risings seem to have longer faces, and smaller eyes that are a bit wider apart. They also have noticeably nice cheekbones. They also tend to have smaller foreheads, and a nose that stand out in a slightly hooked way. But they overall just have a very deer-like face tbh?? 

Capricorn Rising:

Similarly to Sagittarius rising, these gorgeous Capricorn rising have longer faces, but they also have longer noses. Their cheekbones are nice, but not all that initially prominent. They have a kind of pointed eye shape that causes them to have more so piercing eyes. Overall they just have decently symmetrical faces.

Aquarius Rising: 

Ah our uniquely beautiful Aquarian women! The most obvious commonality for Aquarius risings is a more square yet soft face. They also seem to have small foreheads, and wide cheeks. Big eyes also seem to be a commonality, and a nose that sticks out but isn’t hooked or anything. 

Pisces Rising:

Oh Pisces, these lovely ladies seem to all have an upper lip that curves down/in a bit. They also all have these round and soft yet noticeable cheekbones. Their faces in general are long yet soft. They also all have a very far away look in their eyes, as if they are of in their own imagination.

Idk if this is unpopular but I prefer taylena to all of Taylors other friendships

I don’t think it’s unpopular, but I totally agree. Don’t get me wrong, I love all of Taylor’s friends, but my heart has and always will belong to taylena. Let’s take a deeper look into this beautiful friendship because why not.

As Selena said to James Corden, she’s the original squad member. In fact, long before the invention of the “squad” and the goals that go with them, two young teens forged a friendship for the history books.

Both of them dated Jonas Brothers, keeping it in the family. A sign of true friendship. Most importantly, this is how they met. Apparently they “clicked and became instant best friends” thank god for Jo Bro dick.

Look at these awkward teenagers circa 2008, it was a dark time for all of us (peace signs, award mirror selfies), but at least they had each other.

Remember when Taylor wore flats and not heels taller than my entire body? Selena does. They look like high school freshman being sent off to their first homecoming dance. It’s fantastic.

And even as those awkward teen years progressed, they managed to stay best friends. Remember 2009/2010? Who doesn’t? Miley was still Hannah Montana, The Jonas Brothers were still wearing their purity rings and the disney kiddos/taylor had new drama every week? Let’s elaborate.

Taylor and Joe broke up, resulting in lots of bad blood

And of course, who could forget the massive feud between Demi/Selena and Miley/Mandy?

So much drama, so little time. But Taylor and Selena remained close throughout this whirlwind of teenage angst, which is not an easy thing to do. 

They look so happy and carefree. True friendship captured, frozen yogurt and all. 

Remember when they went bowling? I truly iconic friendship date. And check out that digital camera!

What I would give to be trapped in this friendship sandwich.

Friends who win people’s choice awards together win life together too. Best friends must have matching trophies, it’s basically law. Another quality moment.

While on her Speak Now Tour, Taylor wrote the lyrics to Selena’s song “Who Says” on her arm. Wow, Just wow. True friendship.

AMAZING. To take things a step further, Taylor invites Selena out while performing in New York to perform “Who Says” together. Such a moment. Definitely one for the books.

The AMA’s. Wow, what a night. Taylor rocking the side ponytail, matching 3d glasses for her and Selena. Lots of awkward dancing.

We can’t forget that this happened

And of course, here we have Taylor playing the awkward 3rd wheel to Selena and the Biebs, an important sacrifice we all must make for the sake of friendship.

The Teen Choice Awards. Look at these fools. Look at them. So happy, so carefree. Holding hands. Supprting each other. I may shed a tear.

Speaking of supporting each other, never forget this gem

Mermaid pose? Nailed it.

Who could forget this day? A vine of them eating ice cream by the beach. Selena’s wearing seen wearing heart shaped sunglasses, similar to the ones Taylor wore in her 22 video.

Of course, who couldn’t forget 22? A song with the secret message: ASHLEY DIANNA CLAIRE SELENA. Wow. A hidden message with Selena’s name for a song about their friendship! Who does that? Taylor does.

Unfortunately Taylor drifted from Ashley, Dianna and Claire. Thankfully, Taylena’s power only increased.

Remember when Taylor was dancing right behind her and she never even noticed?

Here they’re dancing to 1 Direction together, what many consider to be the start of haylor. Of course Selena is apart of this iconic moment.

Hugging it out again

Here we see Taylor speaking for all of us, cringing as she watches Selena’s ex fuckboy try and whirl his way back in. Me too, Taylor.

Some more awkward dancing at awards shows

And when your friend says there’s no way she can beat Miley, there’s only one proper response. One of the few times we get to see Taylor curse and she’s with Selena. Coincidence? Maybe, but probably not.

And here we have Selena being a wonderfully supportive best friend when 1989 came out. Such a heartwarming message. I can’t even get my friends to like my instagram pics.

And as usual, they’re being supportive af at another awards ceremony

And who could forget the most beautiful heartbreaking moment of all time. Taylor’s reaction to Selena’s emotional performance of The Heart Wants What it Wants

But let’s get back to the fun stuff. 

Let’s talk about this lovely compliment

The time they drunkenly danced at the 1975 concert and Taylor posted a video. Truly marvelous.

Or the time they were the cutest couple in met gala history

And then there’s the time they got nail polish with their initials? And referred to it as BFF Birthday Weekend. Cheesy and adorable.

One of Taylor’s riskier fashion ensembles, but Selena was there to support her anyways. That’s friendship.

How about the time Selena imitated Taylor performing and NAILED IT

Of course, we can’t forget the Bad Blood video. Two bad ladies slaying my ass, dressed in S&M gear and surrounded by flames

And the reaction video they made when it won a Grammy, both of them crying tears of joy BECAUSE THEY ARE GENUINELY HAPPY FOR EACH OTHER WHEN SOMETHING GOOD HAPPENS

An iconic moment at the 2015 VMA’s, the night of the bad blood release. How to ignore your douchy ex when he performs at an awards show, presented by taylena

And more supportive friendship hugging of course

This next one is perhaps the most important, why? BECAUSE I WAS THERE. Here I am enjoying a lovely evening at the 1989 tour at the staples center in LA when Taylor brings out the ONE AND ONLY SELENA GOMEZ SO THEY CAN PERFORM SELENA’S NEW SONG TOGETHER, BOTH OF THEM LOOKING HOT AS HELL AND SLAYING MY ENTIRE EXISTENCE.

Remember when Selena once again praised Taylor for how fantastic she is via instagram?

Or when Selena shared her special blanket via snapchat, which she takes on tour for when she’s homesick. It’s covered with pictures of her loved ones, at least 2 squares containing pics with Taylor. A literal friendship quilt. Someone call Leslie Knope, she’d lose her shit.

Let’s not forget Selena’s carpool karaoke, where she not only admitted that she considers herself the OG squad member, but danced it out to Shake it Off

And, of course, the night to end all nights for Taylena: The 2016 Grammy Awards.

When they OWNED the red carpet together

When this wonderful moment happened

And this adorable shimmy. What are they doing? Idk but I love it.

Don’t forget platonic friendship cuddles

And a little private shade 

But most importantly, Selena’s reaction when Taylor won album of the year, crying tears of joy for her best friend and shredding my emotions into a million pieces

And watching as she accepts her award, like a proud sister

And finally

Selena tweets in Taylor’s defense the night of the kimye scandal and gets dragged to hell and back for it. talk about a ride or die damn

And at Taylor’s final awards show of 2016, as well as her final awards show of the 1989 era, we have Selena presenting Taylor her award for album of the year. Look how proud she is. Look at these idiots.

And here we have Taylor being her usual supportive self, cheering Selena’s name from her sofa as she watches her win the award for best pop artist at the AMA’s. Same, Taylor. Same.

In conclusion, Taylena is the most iconic friendship ever to exist, they invented loving and supporting one another and have destroyed my life on a regular basis since 2008 god bless them

• 4:06 PM - Avengers Tower, New York City •

Hey… It’s 4 PM here so it must be night time where you’re at. Hope the mission’s goin’ well. I miss you a lot, baby. Text me when you can.

Bucky was on the verge of a breakdown.

The city was beautiful, the sky was blue, the tower was quiet, the weather was perfect; but the last thing the super soldier could do was relax.

It had been 24 days without the scent of her vanilla hair, the sound of her soothing voice, and the feeling of her warm skin flushed against his own.

(Y/N) was sent with Sam to Venice to infiltrate a series of galas and events, Intel having said a secret organization was selling illegal blueprints and weapons on the down-low.

Bucky couldn’t help but be resentful towards Tony for volunteering (Y/N) in the first place. Tony seemed to want to torture Bucky in the quietest ways possible, one of those ways being sending his girl away for over a month.

He was dying without her. He was struggling.

• 10:09 PM - Hotel Carlton, Venice, Italy •

Bucky!!! The mission is…well, it’s goin’… Sam misses you, he cries about you every night…that’s pretty annoying, haha.

Bucky grinned, pausing an episode of The Walking Dead that was giving on reruns. He quickly shut off the TV and replied.

You’re damn funny, baby. You know that? You and Sam have different rooms, right?

Yup. I love my space.

Thank God for that.

The Shape of Water

Dir. Guillermo Del Toro


⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐



(Possible Spoilers)



This was such a beautifully profound film, everything about it was so enjoyable. The cast did a wonderful job and the creature effects are amazing, Doug Jones did a FANTASTIC job of conveying the creatures emotions without language. The same goes for Sally Hawkins who gave one of the most emotional yet quiet performances I’ve ever seen it is so nice to see a character in a film whose disabled yet it’s done so tastefully with no “overcoming her disability” nonsense. The movies setting of the early 60′s allows them to not only explore the relationship between her and the Creature, but homosexuality and racism as well. It uses that sort of post WWII Americana vibe of the “Nuclear family” and throws it out the window, due to its meaning that this relationship between this disabled woman and fish creature holds more actual respect and love than any other “normal” family in the film. Michael Shannon does a great job as the villain because he isn’t a “crazy bad guy” he is the archetype of the 50′s “manly man” a painfully outdated way of thinking that is extremely unhealthy. A complex of superiority over all others, that emotion is showing weakness he embodies the “American man” perfectly showing how such atrocities were allowed to be committed back in the time of segregation. Octavia Spencer also does a wonderful job of playing Delilah, one of Eliza’s closest friends, her character helps display the undertones of racism the film has you can see every “normal” character treating her differently like she is beneath them and its that underestimation that allows her get the upper hand at points in such a awful time in american history. 
Another thing I want to praise this film for is its no nonsense approach on human sexuality. The Shape of Water displays romance and physical love as something that’s so natural. The way its displayed is such a good foil to the “decency” of american life from the 50′s as it approaches the “indecency” of the 60′s and beyond. One of the main characters is a gay man trying to find love in a time where it is dangerous to not only to love another man, but to even show emotion as a man. The villain of the movie is the exact opposite where it shows how the violent repressing of emotions can effect men it’s a good example of toxic masculinity. The romance between Eliza and the Creature is so…refreshingly healthy and it forms a stark contrast to how other relationships are shown in the film. I do also need to mention that they are ADORABLE Eliza and the creature as a couple is so cute and it’s so interesting to see their relationship play out.
I feel like it’s important to mention that despite Eliza having a disability it is never the point of the film to “overcome it” and I love that so much. Every character in the film deals with it so respectfully she has so many people who form healthy relationships with her and even know sign language and everyone generally liking her is such a nonchalant thing that you don’t even realize that to the “average” person at the time she is considered different. It’s displayed in such a way where its not a “disability” its just who she is and how she relates to the world and the love she has for the creature is just so pure because of it. 
To anyone who reads this or has any interest please go see this film it’s so beautiful and unique.

To say you are completely floored would be an understatement as you unconsciously curl your fingers tighter around the phone pressed against your ear, confusion and questions settling itself across your features as you try to put a rational thought into this situation only to come up completely short because—!

“What do you mean you’re going to be late?” You demand, trying to keep the nervous touch out your tone, but it’s hard to sound casual when your heart starts to pound a little quicker at the thought of plans not going the way you had once envisioned it to go. “You realize the only reason I’m here is because you insisted that I had to come with you!”

“I’m really sorry (Y/N)-ah!” Hoseok says from the other side of the line, at least trying to make an effort to sound apologetic. “Class ran really really late, and there’s traffic. There must have been an accident or something.”

“I knew we should have just gone together,” You huff out, high heels tapping loudly against the sidewalk pavement as you continue making your way to the restaurant. As much as you would rather simply wait around for Hoseok to arrive to the scene, the idea of just sitting in your car makes you feel slightly congested. While you would be slightly uncomfortable in the restaurant given the company you are about to surround yourself with, it’s better than sitting in the dark.

Female Sexuality Awakens: The Heroine-Villain/Antihero Trope in Labyrinth and The Force Awakens

“Who is that man? The one staring at us? The nasty dog… He looks like he knows what I look like without my shimmy.” - Scarlett O’Hara about her first encounter with Rhett Butler, Gone With the Wind (1940).

Female protagonists have been paired romantically with “mad, bad, and dangerous to know” types since the beginning of and long before the advent of cinema. Although of chagrin to many “nice men” and socially concerned women, this ancient trope speaks to female desire as well as the deeply ingrained cultural idea that female sexual desire is dangerous. Ergo, the male character becomes an outward expression of that danger. For women who have been raised to fear their sexuality, the dangerous and seductive male character is a safe way in which to act out “dangerous” sexual desire. Next, the villain or antihero represents challenge and acts as a foil for personal growth and exploration within the heroine. Last, the villain/antihero is defeated and either banished or his inappropriate masculine power replaced with appropriate masculine power; this serves as a device for female empowerment. In this essay I shall support these assertions by drawing parallels between two modern fantasy movies. The first, 1986’s Labyrinth, features an overt heroine-villain romantic interest and the second, 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens (hereafter referred to as The Force Awakens), features a foreshadowed heroine-villain turned antihero romantic arc. I shall also draw from psychology and classic literary and mythological tropes to bolster my examples.

Section I: The Maiden and the Frightening Unknown

We are often first introduced to our heroine, the young maiden who is presented in a childlike state, her sexuality unawakened. In Labyrinth, we meet Sarah who still plays with her “toys and costumes”. In The Force Awakens we meet Rey who, although living a difficult life on the brink of starvation, still retains a childlike quality in wearing a rebel pilot helmet and keeping a rebel pilot doll.

Sarah: 

Rey:

Most notably, both heroines are presented as young and inexperienced females who become frightened when the consequence of their action calls them to their hero’s journey.

Section II: Into the Woods and Spirited Away

In Labyrinth, Sarah wishes her baby brother, symbolic of her own childhood, away to the Goblin King and is frightened by the aftermath of goblins scampering about her parents’ bedroom (an apropos setting as adult sexuality would be frightening to childlike Sarah), popping in and out of drawers and out from under the bed. Thunder and lightening crash. After Jareth appears he spirits her away to his labyrinth, which is both surrounded and permeated by a glittering autumnal forest.

In The Force Awakens, Rey is called by the Skywalker legacy lightsaber. Touching the lightsaber induces a frightening vision in which she encounters the masked Kylo Ren. After the vision, the Wise Old Woman of the story, Maz Kanata, tells her that the belonging she seeks is not in whomever she is waiting for (her family) but ahead of her. Wanting nothing to do with her apparent destiny, she runs down the steps of Maz’s Castle into a forest where her next encounter with Kylo further frightens her. In her vision, Kylo appears twice as a masked man with a raised lightsaber (more on this in Section IV), the second appearance taking place in the snowy forest of Starkiller Base. When Rey actually encounters Kylo in the Takodana forest, he bridal carries her across the threshold of his ship and spirits her away to the underworld of Starkiller Base. (By the way, the bridal carry of a young woman by a monster or young man, and Kylo/Ben is both, means one of two things in stage: a villainous crush or foreshadowing romance, either immediate or distant future. I leave it to you to imply the narrative direction this trilogy is going.)

In fairy tales and mythology, Dark Forests or Enchanted Forests carry multiple meanings, among which are sexuality, the subconscious, mystery, and our primal selves. Most importantly, the forest represents a rite of passage. Red Riding Hood meets and defeats the Big Bad Wolf in the forest. Rama takes refuge in the forest for fourteen years before rescuing Sita. Snow White becomes lost and is eventually awoken with the Kiss of Life in the forest. Beauty chases her lost father into the forest only to find the Beast. Thus, into the forest Sarah and Rey go, for it is here where they must encounter their Shadow, Dark Side, or Subconscious and shine Light on it so that they can transform from childhood to adulthood, from unawakened to awakened.

Section III: Temptation Presents Itself or Enter Boy Trouble

In every hero’s journey, something or someone who turns the hero’s world upside down must enter the picture in order for the hero to develop. This is no different for our female protagonists, whose worlds are upturned by the arrival of the tempting male antagonist. Enter Boy Trouble.

Needless to say, there appear to be some commonalities in presentation. Both Jareth the Goblin King and Kylo Ren/Ben Organa-Solo wear black clothing, have sharp, angular features, and appear to spend an inordinate amount of time on hair maintenance. In personality, Jareth and Kylo are haughty, intelligent, and display dry or deadpan senses of humor. They are both magic (Force) users, men of power, and royalty with Jareth being King of the Goblins and Kylo being the son of Princess Leia Organa.

Most importantly, their initial shots serve to establish that the female protagonist is physically attracted to her dangerous but alluring antagonist. During their presenting shots, both men’s features are sexualized using make-up and and lighting, their less flattering features deemphasized, and both men are presented at flattering angles (for Kylo, this initial unmasking is arguably his most attractive shot in the film, followed closely by his close-ups with Rey during their lightsaber duel). Note both heroines appear taken aback and enchanted by their antagonists. Rey even gives Kylo “elevator eyes”, then pointedly looks away when he approaches, stealing not one but two glances back at him.

Sarah’s reaction to the appearance of the Goblin King:

Rey is captivated as Han Solo tells of “one boy” who destroyed Luke’s new generation of Jedi:

Rey’s reaction to Kylo’s unmasking:

The following point will be covered more in depth in Section IV, but it is appropriate to note in this section that during both initial presentations, serpent symbolism is employed. Jareth throws a snake at Sarah and when Kylo unmasks we hear a snake hiss and rattle. The serpent is an ancient trope; in the Garden of Eden the snake tempted Eve with the apple from the Tree of Knowledge. Snakes represent phallic imagery, deception, and temptation; all three ideas apply although Kylo’s deception (that he is a man rather than a creature) is only a deception from Rey’s perspective. (Without wading too deeply into the weeds here, the film strongly suggests Ben Organa-Solo is not a monster and has a forthcoming redemption arc.)

In addition, each antagonist is also a Death or Hades figure (Please make time to read Death and the Maiden by @ohtze for in-depth analysis). Jareth and Kylo, dressed in black and sweeping Sarah and Rey away to their respective representations of the Underworld, the Underground and Starkiller Base, represent the death of childhood innocence and the rebirth of mature sexuality.

Jareth spirits Sarah away to the Underground:

Kylo (Hades) bears Rey (Persephone) away to the depths of Starkiller Base (the Underworld) on his ship (chariot) led by four TIE fighters (horses):

Finally, both antagonists serve as empathetic foils for their respective heroine’s character development. Both antagonists have similarities with the heroine. Sarah is an intelligent bookworm; Jareth is witty and intelligent. Rey and Kylo engage in what has been affectionately dubbed by fans as The Nerd-Off, a subtle battle of wits that takes place during her interrogation. Rey begins reciting droid specifications and Kylo cuts her off, saying he needs a map it is carrying and going into unnecessary detail about having put together all the other pieces of the map by recovering them from the archives of the Empire. That’s right, One Boy just told What Girl he spends all his time in archives as a point of pride. In the novelization, he also lets her know that he too knows about general droid specifications (thank you very much). Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the nerdiest of them all? Both antagonists also relate to the heroine’s loneliness and isolation. The Goblin King sings to Sarah lyrics such as “the lost and the lonely”, “there’s such a sad love deep in your eyes”, and “live without your sunlight, love without your heartbeat”. As Kylo reads Rey’s mind, his tone is soft and empathetic. “You’re so lonely. So afraid to leave. At night, desperate to sleep, you imagine an ocean. I see it. I see the island.”

Each protagonist and antagonist pair is presented as two sides of the same coin. While Sarah’s development lies in realizing that the world is not fair, a fact the Goblin King does not fail to remind her of on several occasions, Jareth too displays a haughty, entitled attitude. Kylo/Ben and Rey are presented in a more Yin and Yang manner. Kylo is typically shown as a rage-filled, selfish character (tantrum throwing and ultimately choosing to kill his father) with moments of compassion (letting Finn off the hook in the opening scene and attempting to interrogate Rey first in a non-invasive manner then empathizing with her loneliness and isolation). Rey is typically shown as a compassionate character (choosing BB-8’s well being over more food rations than she has likely ever seen before) with moments of sheer rage (slashing Kylo’s face after she has already disarmed him). In the case of Kylo/Ben, we can presume that Rey will also serve as a foil for his character development as he makes the transformation from Kylo Ren back to Ben Organa-Solo.

Section IV: Sometimes a Lightsaber Isn’t Just a Lightsaber

Remember that part in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire that talks about the champions’ wands being flexible or rigid and whose wand was which length? Did you giggle at it? If so, then you did exactly what the author intended. Phallic imagery is purposely placed in literature and films, especially coming of age fantasies, as a signifier of potency, whether sexual or otherwise. Phallic imagery abounds in both Labyrinth and The Force Awakens. The following represent some of the phallic imagery present within both films.

Jareth warns Sarah, “Don’t defy me” then throws a snake at her:

Jareth and his cane:

Let’s not forget Jareth’s pants magic pants:

Hasn’t anyone told Kylo it’s bad manners to put your lightsaber in a stranger’s face?

I’m so not even kidding about this one. Check out the “tip” of his index finger. There you go. Now you can’t unsee it:

Note the positioning of the lightsaber as Kylo approaches the “girl he’s heard so much about”:

Thanks, Wedge. Monster, indeed.

Section V: Female Sexuality Awakens

Sarah is pulled into the Labyrinth’s world of sexual awakening when she summons Jareth, who shows up in the window of her parents’ bedroom. Jareth tells her he has brought her a gift. “It’s a crystal, nothing more. But if you turn it this way, look into it, it will show you your dreams.” Later in the film, Jareth sends her just such a crystal, which transports her to a highly sexualized ballroom with adult men and women wearing phallic masks (check out the horns and noses). She is the only character wearing white, symbolic of purity and virginity. After stumbling around the room, startled by the lascivious behavior she sees, she encounters Jareth who sweeps her in for a “dance” while singing to her, “As the pain sweeps through makes no sense for you. Every thrill is gone, wasn’t too much fun at all. But I’ll be there for you as the world falls down”. A song about the loss of virginity if I ever heard one. However, catching sight of a clock, she realizes she is running out of time to save her baby brother (innocence) and smashes a mirror, shattering the illusion.

Rey and Kylo engage in their own “dance”, during which the most transparent veiled pick-up line in cinematic history (aside from “Forget about your innocence the baby” of course) occurs when Kylo tells Rey, “You need a teacher. I can show you the ways of the Force.” First, “You need a teacher” is an established trope both in cinema/literature and real life for initiating romance. Men like to teach women of interest activities, whether driving a manual transmission or playing video games, as an evolutionary mechanism of showing fitness to mate. It’s a way of saying, “Look at all the skills I know and can show you. You should mate with me because you can count on me for survival skills.” (Yes, I’m aware of the not so feminist implications of this. I didn’t write the evolutionary handbook; I’m just its messenger.) Next, long time Star Wars fans will recall that typically when a Dark Side user is speaking about the Force or trying to recruit new members, some variation of “the power of the Dark Side” is used. Even Kylo, earlier in the film, tells Lor San Tekka, “I’ll show you the Dark Side”. There is a reason Kylo’s proposition to Rey is phrased “ways of the Force”. Read: Ways of the world, a euphemism for sex. Smooth, buddy. Smooth. However, based on the close-up shots that follow, it just might have worked.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the first non-sex sex scene in a Lucasfilm production. These shots are in order, so I’d just like to point out that as Rey’s face goes from struggle and concentration to loving it, Kylo’s goes from “I think I love this woman” to “Oh, let me help you find that Force” to “Yeah, you take it”. Something tells me it’s not just the Force that awakened in Rey.

Section VI: Confrontations and Female Empowerment

In Labyrinth, Sarah and Jareth’s final showdown occurs on the remaining piece of the Escher room, a room symbolic of confusion. In the Escher room, where Sarah haphazardly chases her baby brother Toby every which way on stairs that lead senseless directions, we get a glimpse of Jareth’s rather sad perspective, one in which he is not the villain of the story but a man (or supernatural being) attempting to live up to a girl’s unrealistic expectations of him. “You starve and near exhaust me. Everything I’ve done I’ve done for you,” he sings. When the Escher room crumbles only Sarah and Jareth remain standing on its remaining piece. It is here that Sarah at last displays the clarity and wisdom to take down her alluring foe. Jareth tells her, “Just fear me, love me, do as I say and I will be your slave.” Sarah defeats him by proclaiming, “You have no power over me.” This sexual awakening was Sarah’s fantasy and Sarah’s story to begin with; she needed only claim it.

In The Force Awakens, Rey defeats Kylo Ren at his own game not once but twice. The first instance occurs during her interrogation when Kylo is attempting to read her mind in order to extract the map to Luke Skywalker. As he attempts to push into her mind, she turns his game around and pushes back into his, revealing his greatest fear, that he will never be as strong as Darth Vader, emasculating him and leaving him shaking as he bolts from the room.

Kylo’s second defeat occurs during their lightsaber duel on Starkiller Base. After “finding the Force together” Rey launches an understandably vicious attack against Kylo, leading to a grappling match in which the blue legacy lightsaber is raised victoriously aloft via Kylo raising Rey’s wrist while Rey grips Kylo’s wrist and pummels his red crossguard saber into the earth, a symbol for female fertility. After the red blade is extinguished, Rey forces Kylo to the ground, emasculated and spent.

Rey uses Ben Organa-Solo’s lightsaber to defeat Kylo Ren and extinguish his. (Repeat that last sentence aloud, then report back on the symbolism):

Kylo Ren, his lightsaber extinguished in the ground, marked and spent:

Notably, after Kylo is disarmed Rey slashes his face. Why scar him in this way? Remember that snake noise when Kylo unmasked? Kylo unmasking caught Rey off-guard, both from an attraction standpoint and in making her think there was more beneath the mask than just a “creature” or “monster”. Likely feeling angry at both Kylo and herself for falling for what she perceives as trickery when he kills his father, Rey fixes the issue by slashing the tempting snake’s pretty face. Ironically, males with scars, particularly facial scars, are perceived as more attractive because evolutionarily this indicates a surviving alpha male and thus signals desirable genes. While our rational brain may say, “Yeah, but that’s the scar Rey gave him after she kicked his butt” our hindbrain (and Rey’s) still says, “Oo a scar – now those are some genes I’d like to pass on”. In attempting to disfigure Kylo so that he is no longer a temptation, Rey makes him even more irresistible for future encounters.

A key difference exists between the ending of Labyrinth and The Force Awakens. Whereas Labyrinth was meant as a single movie and ends with the heroine defeating the villain, The Force Awakens was meant as part one of a trilogy, with strong narrative hints toward a future romance between the villain antihero and heroine. In the first story of female sexual awakening we are presented with an adolescent girl who is leaving childhood, encounters a physical manifestation of her own unrealistic and problematic expectations of male sexuality, and defeats this antagonist by reclaiming her power. In the second tale we are presented with a young woman who is leaving childhood, encounters a dangerous masked antagonist who is revealed to be a handsome but dark young man, defeats him by twice emasculating him, and is foreshadowed to have future romantic encounters with him, presumably as Ben Organa-Solo, the rightful heir of the Skywalker legacy lightsaber, the symbol of the Light Side and appropriate use of masculine power.

Section VII: Conclusion

The heroine-villain/antihero trope serves several functions in Labyrinth and The Force Awakens. First, this trope allows for safe exploration of female sexuality with males women are evolutionarily primed to be attracted to, often considered dangerous territory and “not supposed to’s” according to social mores. Next, the villain or antihero represents challenge and acts as a foil for personal growth and exploration within the heroine. Finally, the conquering of the dangerous male, either by defeat and removal of presence or by replacement of inappropriate masculine power with appropriate masculine power, serves as a device of female empowerment.

Your Queen’s 2018 writer suggestions (Marvel)

this is my compilation of the best writers I have found this year. This is to congratulated them and signal boost them, because they truly deserve greatness and more recognition for the great work they’ve put on this site. They are incredibly creative, shocking, and immersive writers. A completely Loki-less list, because I feel I should signal boost those who write other characters than who I write. All these writers have written more than three beautiful pieces; this is just me giving you a taste of some of their bests, according to me. Enjoy!


@caplansteverogers calls herself the queen of mob AU’s and that is the truest thing of my 2017. Consistent and clear writer, with the capability of ripping your heart out and making it whole all in her expert writing skills. Queen of plot twists and cliffhangers, I present three of the best works according to me:

This Could be Heartbreak: a truly captivating story of Mob!Bucky which will immerse you in Caplan’s amazing skills and give you a taste of her incredibly envious creativity. 

Sultry Weathers: utterly her best, hands down. (Again, my opinion). Immerse yourself within the world of mobster Steve Rogers and Tony Stark. I feel like this piece of art needs so much more, if not all, the recognition. 

Wrecking Ball: some really hot and sexy, steamy Cap smut. I love the way she captures Steve in all his different angles. So here is the best Captain America smut out there. 


@hellomissmabel: welcome to a world of beautifully crafted writing. Annie immerses you into colorful, descriptive, and heart-wrenching writing. She is the queen of marvel, in my opinion, and delivers impressive and mouth watering pieces. Here are three that have marked me in 2017:

Hello Future Husband: if you are looking for a plus size!reader and Bucky goodness, I suggest you read this. I have read a lot of Bucky fics in my life, and yet, I keep coming back to this one. 

No One Does it Better: honestly the best sequel to this. She completely and utterly catches the personality of both Bucky and Steve. Amazing writing as always; story encrusted within the chapter, characterization perfectly exhibited. I am in love. 

Lay Your Shield Down My Love |part one| part two|: A beautiful series with Steve x reader. I always had a kink for Cappy and let me tell you, Annie has delivered for me. I love the way Steve is characterized in this; beautifully and to the point. Congratulations. A must. 


@papi-chulo-bucky: my first tumblr crush and my all time favorite blogger. The URL explains it, but Del is the master if not the queeeeen of Bucky. I am always so enamored and impressed by her work. A world of Bucky fun and smut. I present to you, a Bucky-only trio of goodness: 

Delta:  A very NSFW, but a very well written and smoldering piece of art. I love the way Del captures Bucky: utterly and totally brooding and conflicted. This A/B/O story has fucked me up in the best of ways. Don’t forget to read the sequel here

Nicknames: some good old Bucky smut that still has me shivering and shuddering every time I read it. I love Bucky in this. I suggest, if you want some really well written and wetting fanfic, read this. 

Pursuit of Happiness: a different turn on Bucky, but Del remains professional in her way of picturing him. He is very vivid and illustrated, as if he’s been painted on a canvas. I absolutely adore this and I really suggest you read. 


@anaboo96: says writing is her thing, well I think writing is absolutely her thing. This girl can write a damn good story. Insipirational writing skills. Always in contact with her followers. Has an amazing sense of the character she writes, and stays faithful to them. Beautifully crafts her characters along with the Marvel ones. If you want a really good mix of Marvel characters, Ana’s your girl. 

Sweet Talker: This Sam Wilson one shot has got me shook. I don’t normally read Sam Wilson, but when I came across this, I knew this was a masterpiece. She accurately represents him; cunning and seductive, like a snake almost. I absolutely love it. 

A Halloween Birthday: this is the most accurate and amazing multi-character fic. I love how Ana really mixes the personalities of Natasha, Sam, Steve, and Bucky. A very quirky and amazing light story, which immerses you in how life would be with those foolish, goofy people. 

Think Like A Man: Again, Ana’s got Sam down to the detail. Sam deserves so much recognition, and she has given it to him. She does him justice in this beautiful, two-part series. It is just a shame that it is incomplete, because I know she’d do a hell of a wonderful job continuing it.

Not only that, but she’ll be wearing the very dress he first told her he loved her.

AUTHORS NOTE: This is my first real smut so be gentle! Also, I did it all in one night so it might not be as good as my other stories. Sorry about that! :/

Secret Santa Fic Exchange

A small group of us decided that we wanted to do a Secret Santa gift exchange for Christmas this year, but where we all gift each other fics instead of something bought. We all wrote our fics based off of the same prompt as well, and now here are the fics that resulted! The fics have now been revealed, so let’s see if you guessed correctly for who wrote which one! We hope you enjoy these as much as I know we are. 

The Prompt: I was walking past your house, you had your door open and I saw you dancing in your kitchen and now whenever I hear that song I think about you.

The Fics (below the cut because there’s eight of them total):

People have taken pictures of him before. It started when he was a hilariously ugly baby with two beautiful and talented parents and it didn’t stop until Samwell. (“Hi Jack Zimmermann, You’ve been selected for the Samwell Swallow’s 50 Most Beautiful. When would be a convenient time for us to photograph you? You may bring any props you wish.” Upon showing the email to Shitty: “Shitty, NO.” “But Jack…” “SHITTY NO.”)

He’s taken pictures of himself. The hardest assignment to fulfill for photography class was the self-portrait. Jack ended up photographing his reflection on the Plexiglass above the boards. He looked like a ghost.

This is different. Jack consented to this.

Sensual

Here we have my first imagine of the year! Enjoy it! Hope you all have a wonderful 2018 and may all of your wishes come true! (Sorry for grammar, spell mistakes and typos. This handsome picture doesn’t belong to me!!!) 

Y/N is lying comfortably on her bed in nothing but her underwear, her body being steadied on her elbows and she scrolls through social media while waiting for Harry who’s taking a shower at the moment to join her to go to sleep. Her Instagram feed is full of pictures of her boyfriend that many accounts she follows post almost on daily basis -24/7 to be exact. Some of them are quite new while others are from many years ago. Especially the captions make her chuckle a lot because she can relate to the way the fans feel about Harry. Sometimes it is even hard for her to believe she belongs to him and he belongs to her and Y/N still cannot figure out how she has managed to steal the heart of a successful British artist who’s being loved by the entire world.

The support she gets from the fandom is incredible. From the first moment they have made their relationship official- not without discussing the pros and cons about their decision- Y/N had been struggling with fear that nobody would ever love or accept her but the fandom has proven her wrong. Before she could even blink fan accounts have been created and they were given a cute ship name. Y/N is stunned by the whole attention she gets, sometimes it is quite overwhelming.

A chuckle leaves her mouth as she stumbles across a ‘fetus Harry’ post. These are her favourite posts from all because Harry was all cute, freaky and carefree when he was a teenager. Once in a while she wishes she had met him back then because 16-year old Harry had been someone she definitely would have loved hanging out with even though she loves the mature and handsome one more.

She stares at his young features, the genuine and cheeky dimpled smile he offers, the gleaming of his forest green eyes, the softness his curly hair spreads and she just want to run her fingers through it. If she had a time travel machine she wouldn’t hesitate to use it and instantly would jump back to the year 2010 where Harry’s career has started. Maybe even a bit before that.

The funny thing is that Harry knows about her passion for his younger self. She always makes it kinda obvious and he didn’t miss to see her collection of old photos she hides in a large box for him to be unseen. Harry has grinned as he had discovered the large amount of pictures he is not supposed to look at.

A sigh leaves her lips as suddenly she feels a strong and firm touch on her hip as someone’s body plops down right next to her with a loud thud.

“What have I done to deserve seeing you like this, sexy girl?” His low voice whispers seductively into her ear, referring to her wearing only under garments.

Y/N takes a glimpse of him and it leaves her almost breathless. No matter how much she has already seen him in that state, it never fails to amaze her how beautiful he is indeed. His hair is slightly wet from the shower he has taken earlier and he wears nothing but a boxer so she has a good view on his bare muscled upper body, covered with his black inked tattoos. The butterfly is her favourite.

What she doesn’t know is that she has the exact same effect on Harry when she is half naked in front of him. His heart would thump strongly between his rips and he would stare at her as she was a goddess that she definitely is.

Y/N cheeks flush lightly as her eyes meet his and the loving gaze he is offering her. “Hi beautiful.”  

He pushes a strand of hair softly behind her ear so her neck is clearly exposed to him. The fresh scent of his shower gel hits her nostrils and captures her all of her senses. It reminds her of the ocean.

“What are you doing?” Harry asks.

Y/N shrugs her shoulders. “Nothing much.  I’m just scrolling through Instagram and look at your pictures that bless my feed.”

Harry laughs at her remark. “Do you like them at least?”

“A lot. You have a pretty face but you probably know that already.”

“No I don’t but I know someone who has a prettier face than mine.” He says, scurrying closer to her body. Her eyes flutter shut as she can feel his warm breath on her neck and his soft lips that please her skin with sensual kisses. “You, darling.”

They’re together for almost a year and Y/N is still not used to the compliments he is offering her. She really appreciates his attempts to show his love for her but she hates that she always blushes until she is red like a tomato. And Harry seems to like it, otherwise he wouldn’t compliment her almost every day. He loves the way she tries to avoid his gaze because she’s too flustered to look at him afterwards. It’s absolutely adorable in his opinion.

His hand trails the way up and down her back, causing goose bumps to develop on her skin. Y/N enjoys his sweet touch on her back and closes her eyes in relaxation. Then she opens them again and focuses on her Instagram feed. Harry of course cannot have her not giving him her attention, that’s why he tries to rip her phone out of her hand.

“Harry, stop.” Y/N warns him, but he obviously doesn’t listen to her. Every second he’s with her is spending precious time and he wants to fully enjoy it. And a simple device will not hold him back.

“You’ve been on your phone enough, now give me some attention, love.” His lips form into a pout and he looks like an offended child.

“Give me a minute.” Y/N says, but then she’s suddenly shoved onto her back and finds Harry hovering over her.

“One minute is too much, love…” He almost growls, taking her phone out of her hand and placing it onto the night table beside her. Then, he intertwines their hands and rests them on each side of her head before he eases down. Their chests almost touch and Y/N can feel the heat radiating out of his body.

Harry is always looking for ways to be close to her, no matter if it’s just a silly thing like her being on her phone. It shows how much his life is dependent on her because if he lost her, oh hell, he wouldn’t know how to live anymore.

Their faces are a few centimetres away from each other.  His green eyes stare at hers, changing sweet declarations of love. Harry then leans in and connects their lips to a kiss and closes the gap. Every time their lips meet, it’s another experience for both of them. Every kiss is different from the other and there is always a different meaning behind it. They share happy kisses, sad kisses, longing kisses but sometimes even angry kisses.

Harry slightly shoves his tongue into her mouth, wordlessly asking for her permission to enter. She opens her mouth and invites his wet muscle with her own, their tongues dancing and their breaths mixing with each other.  They let go of her their hands so Harry can support himself on his elbows to feel more of Y/N and she slings on arm around his neck and her other hands wanders through the back of his head. Chests are being pressed tightly against each other so that Harry can feel her and Y/N can feel his heartbeat and it is the purest feeling ever. They are completely wrapped in each other’s arms and there is no other place they want to be. Home is in Y/N’s arms. Home is in Harry’s arms. Nowhere else. Their kiss continues until there is no air in their lungs anymore and they reluctantly have to pull away.

Harry buries his face in the crook of Y/N’s neck, spreading little pecks on the soft skin. He’s so affectionate with her, Y/N could melt down.

“Pay me attention, love.” Harry murmurs.

“Attention?” Y/N questions, a quick idea rushing through her mind. “ I’m gonna give you attention.”

And with a swift motion, Harry lands on his back and before he can realise what happening right now, Y/N is already straddling his hips. A cheeky smile adorns her beautiful face and that means only one thing.

“Y/N, don’t you dare!” He warns, holding her hands in his and desperately shoving them away from his body.

“What are you talking about? I’m just giving you some attention. Don’t you want my attention?” The young woman looks at him innocently.

“I know what you’re-“  And a loud laughter escapes his throat as he feels her tickling his sides, interrupting his speech. Her fingers work their way up and down his torso, tickling every sensitive spot on him and he tries to wiggle out of her grip but no way, Y/N has him under her control. His hips and his armpits are his weakness and Y/N especially concentrates on those areas.

It makes her happy to hear his laughter because he barely lets out a genuine laugh, makes her happy to see how he would close his eyes shut and how he would try to fight her. He is the most beautiful man she has ever seen in the entire time of her existence.

“S-stop p-please!” Harry screams in despair, still laughing and even though Y/N wants to torture him a bit more with her assault, she lets him go. Poor Harry is totally out of breath, his chest lifts and falls rapidly. Y/N leans down contently to peck the tip of his nose and then she lets herself fall down next to him, cuddling against his side.

“Y-you’re gonna pay for that.” Harry breathes tiredly, making her chuckle.

“Sure, babe.”

 Which part did you like more? The kissing part or the tickling part?

Well, this is going to be a reeeeally long post… so, be prepared.
I’ve always loved Christmas: I love buying presents for my friends, love the shiny lights down the streets, the atmosphere, the ritual of decorating the Christmas tree and making the nativity scene (I used to  do that with my sister when we were living at my parent’s house), the fact that I can stay with all my family (and my doggy of course) and just enjoy the time together and have long conversation with my cousins or my grandma.

I’ve had a beautiful childhood and I decided to put some of my memories in this drawing.
It’s a little present for all of you, for your tireless support, for your kind words in chat or asks. I’m grateful for this full year, even if it has been a bit difficult and, sometimes, I was really scared.
I want to thank all the tumblr community and wish you all the happiness in the world.

If you are interested there’s an “explanation” of the drawing under the “read more” line, useful for those who aren’t Italian and want to know more about some of our Christmas food and traditions.

anonymous asked:

could you do the rfa + minor trio (if you feel like it!) and little ways they show mc they love her? I hope this makes sense lol. i love your blog 💘

Thank you, darling! What a cute request ;3

RFA + Minor Trio and the little ways they show their love for MC

~~~

Yoosung

  • Since Yoosung gets home from the hospital pretty late, it is you who cooks dinner; and you usually cook some pretty extravagant.
  • It could be something so simple as macaroni, and yet you’d find a way to make it somewhat extra.
  • After every dinner, Yoosung will clean the dishes.
  • And he hates cleaning the dishes. He always had to do them when he was living with his parents. yes, when in college he never did the dishes
  • It has a become a routine that once you are both finished eating, you’ll go to the couch to rest for a bit or read a book, and Yoosung will start playing his favorite music through his headphones while he cleans the dishes.
  • Whenever you guys play video games, he’ll always let you win,
  • And he’ll always make a big deal when you win to make it look like he didn’t just totally let you kill him in the easiest battle possible.
  • Usually, Yoosung is the first one to be awake in the morning since work starts earlier for him. It makes him sad knowing he cannot be besides you when you awaken from your slumber.
  • To make up for it, he leaves little post it notes around the house for you to find, and they are new every morning.
  • They are always compliments, encouragements, or him telling you that he loves you, and each are super cute.
  • You have all of them saved in a scrapbook.

Zen

  • One of the most simplest things to do, yet one of his favorite ways to show he loves you, is to make the bed – Of course, it all depends on whether he has a early resershal though, keep in mind.
  • You guys have a pretty big bed,
  • And you guys usually make a pretty big mess doing a numerous amount of… activities.
  • Once you are out of the bed and up and about, Zen starts to make the bed, and he does a pretty good job it!
  • He once tried to make a swan out of one of the towels from the bathroom to put on the bed, like the ones they do at hotels, but it came out looking like more of an ugly duckling. EIther way, you appreciate what he was trying to do and found it cute.
  • Zen goes shopping with you.
  • That is a big thing for him to do since he doesn’t like shopping unless it’s facial products for him.
  • He finds it boring, but he will do it for you. He knows that you value his opinion on what you pick out, and he knows that you enjoy his company.
  • Everyday, there is something new posted about you on his blog or any other social media platform.
  • He makes a huge effort to post at least one appreciation post about you.
  • Most of them are really corny and cheesy, but at the same time they are sweet and loving.
  • He loves to post some of his favorite things you have said that day, and will post a picture of you doing something simple like cleaning around the house or laying with him on the couch, or doing something that you love.
  • He just needs to share with everyone how amazing you are, and to tell everyone just how much he loves you!

Jaehee

  • She’ll always put down her work and take an hours break to take you on a walk.
  • She loves how peaceful they are, and loves how much closer you guys can get. You’ll both talk about your days, what you want to watch on tv, Zen’s musicals, or a book you’ve read.
  • You guys will hold each others hands tightly. She’ll sometimes stop you to point something out that reminds her of you.
  • Jaehee regularly thanks you for the little things you do around the house, like cooking or cleaning.
  • She is always very appreciative to see dinner on the table and to find the living room clean. If she is still working with Jumin, it is very comforting to come to a clean home after a stressful day. If you guys are working at the cafe, she’ll sometimes do extra hours, and it’s nice to come back up from the cafe and see dinner is ready.
  • She’ll always run errands for you,
  • No matter what it is.
  • You could text her and say that you guys are out of toilet paper, and you could have intended to get new rolls yourself, but she’ll beat you to it and go out of her way to get it.

Jumin

  • When Jumin gets home, he always gives you a long, loving kiss.
  • No short kisses or quick ones to your cheek or forehead, but to your lips, and they are always passionate enough to show you how much he missed you and how he couldn’t wait but to come home to you.
  • Every kiss leaves you breathless.
  • Jumin loves to give you random foot massages. You won’t even be complaining of having sore feet, but he’ll just grab your feet from the ground and put them on his lap, and uses those talented fingers of his on them. Could use them on something else
  • He’ll also sometimes massage your shoulders or back. 
  • He just loves to give you massages to make you feel good.
  • He enjoy picking movies out that he knows you’ll love for you and him to watch together before bed. 
  • If you guys do not have other activities he’ll plan a movie night with snacks and wine.
  • If he’s feeling up for it, he’ll make a fort with you too, though it’s rare.
  • And Elizabeth the 3rd will always lounge across both of your laps as you two cuddle up under a soft blanket.

Seven/Saeyoung

  • Seven lives for the little things he can do to show his love.
  • Although, nothing is ever little with him.
  • Seven sends you texts constantly throughout the day to tell you he loves you. He feels bad that most of the time he has to stay cooped up in his ‘office’ doing work, so every hour he sends you a text.
  • Most of them are goofy, but some can be nice and sweet too. Favorites?
  • “Everyday is like Valentine’s Day with you!”
  • “What did one boat say to the other? ‘Are you up for a little row-mance?’ Are you up for some romance, MC?”
  • “I know I haven’t been the best husband ever, but baby, I’m truly in love with you. And I’m always thinking of you.”
  • Seven likes to occasionally re-create your first proper date. Your first ever date was actually a simple candle lit dinner out in the park, so every so often he’ll take you back to the park and have the same meal, same table, same candles out there.
  • Probably your favorite thing is that he cosplays as your favorite characters from TV shows, movies, or books/manga, and will be them for the whole day.
  • It’s so much fun because not only is he brilliant at cosplay, he’s a brilliant actor too! Watch out Zen.
  • So he really plays the roll well and makes it believable for you.

V

  • Sometimes he will come home early from work with dinner.
  • He likes to surprise you by walking through the door with chinese food, pizza, or what ever your favorite take out is, and he loves to see just how your face lights up at not only seeing him but the food too.
  • He may get carried away sometimes and feed the food to you, but you don’t complain.
  • Everyday, he makes sure to thank you for being a wonderful wife.
  • V thinks that it is very important to tell you how happy he is that you stuck by him and never left his side even after everything, and now you’re his wife, and everyday show him love he didn’t think he deserved.
  • He paints you many, many pictures.
  • In fact, you think you have maybe over 100 at this point.
  • Most of them are self portraits of you, others are stuff that remind him of you. Some may also just be paintings he worked hard on and wanted to give to you.
  • Your bedroom is filled with paintings.

Saeran/Unknown

  • Like Seven, he lives for the little things he can do to show his love, considering he is not someone who is very outgoing or flamboyant.
  • He always lets you have the lost scoop of ice cream, the last piece of cake, or just the last bit of dessert.
  • It’s a hard thing for him to do since he loves his sweets, but for you he’ll do it.
  • He’d rather you be the one enjoying it then him.
  • Ice cream is incredibly important to the both of you. Your fridge, if not filled with food, is filled with ice cream.
  • Saeran makes sure that the fridge is always stocked up on your favorite ice cream. If he sees that it’s running low, he’ll run to the market to get another carton.
  • Saeran runs baths for you;
  • When he sees that you are getting stressed out, or that you’re tired, or that you just need to relax for a bit, he’ll go and run the bath for you, fill it with bubbles, and put in your favorite bath bomb – if you like them.
  • He’ll also sit with you too if your comfortable. He’ll rest his head on the side of the tub, his fingers dipping into the waters sometimes and tracing up your skin.
  • He may also join you in the tub too, but he prefers to take showers with you if anything.
  • Saeran isn’t the best with words, but he wants you to realize just how truly beautiful he thinks you are.
  • On the mirror is a new sticky note every day complimenting you. And there is always a small heart or smiley face at the bottom too. Each one you have saved and put in a box.
  • Saeran also frames many picture of you guys up around the house. It could be a really bad photo, but as long as you two are in it he is printing it out and finding a nice frame for it.
  • There is barely any room left on the walls.

Vanderwood

  • He’ll surprise you with something you’ve been meaning to get done, done.
  • He can see that you are busy, and he can see that things like needing to get your car cleaned or re-organizing your bookshelf is getting pushed to the last of your priorities.
  • So he’ll do it for you. He’ll organize the bookshelf for you just how you like it, and he’ll clean your car, since cleaning is his specialty.
  • Vanderwood likes to make little to-do lists with you of all the fun things you guys want to do together.
  • He has really nice handwriting,
  • And he actually gets really excited making a bucket list type of thing. He also gets excited just thinking of all the things he’d love to do with you.
  • For example, a trip to London!
  • The only time he went to London was for a mission, but he would really love to get to go there with you as a vacation spot. He wants to take you on the London Eye, around the shops, see a show at the West End, stay in a fancy hotel.
  • You have a habit of waiting up for him. Unfortunately, he doesn’t usually finish work till about midnight or sometimes past, and you’ll end up falling asleep on the couch waiting for him.
  • He always brings you to bed and changes you into your pajamas, being ever so gentle not to wake you.
  • If he still has more work to do, he’ll kinda just say fuck it and bring it to bed with him so he can just stay besides you.
  • It’s hard for him to be so far from you.

BTS According To My Sweet Mom:

So earlier today, in an effort to bond with my favorite person (my mom) I showed her a pic of BTS and asked her who she thought was the cutest and why. Her responses were pure gold so I thought I’d share.

Here was the picture in question. 

Cute, as always. And here was my mom’s first impression of our favorite boys:

Namjoon: “mmm…. he’s too fake gangster.”

Yoongi: “He looks like a Japanese schoolgirl.”

Jimin: “Are you… Are you sure that’s a man?”

Jin: “He’s so… goofy looking.”

Jungkook: “He’s too pointy.” (Wtf does this even mean?)

Taehyung: “Aww, what a pretty boy!”

Hobi: (He was her favorite!!!) “That is the most beautiful man I’ve ever seen in my life. They did not make them like that when I was your age.”

So. There you have it. My mom has spoken and she’s a Hobi stan. She’s the nicest lady and she’s even trying to learn their names for me. I would die for her.

Powerful

Your name: submit What is this?

In the Salvatore House:

Damon was beyond furious. “You little-”

“Ah, ah, ah.” Kai smirked while shaking his finger at Damon. 

“I told you not to underestimate me, but you did it anyway. Locking me up in a prison world, again.”

“If you touch Elena, I’ll rip your throat out.” Damon hissed.

Kai chuckled and shook his head, “Oh I won’t touch Elena. A little bird told me there’s someone better. Someone you love more than yourself.”

Damon realized Kai found out about you, he tried so hard to keep you secret from him, “I swear if you do anything to her, I’ll-”

“Rip my throat out, yeah I got it, I’ve heard that about a hundred times and you know what? I still don’t care. And as the looks of it-” he paused and chuckled. “The spell is working, you won’t be able to move, until I let you. Sure, I could just kill you now, but I’m going to kill your sister and show you her lifeless body. I mean it wouldn’t be any fun otherwise?” Kai smiled, provoking Damon even more. 

Kai pulled out a knife and sliced  Damon’s hand, and hold his own up, catching the blood. Damon looked at him confused.

“What? First, I have to find her.” 

Kai used a simple location spell, leading him to your exact location, he smiled, “Found her.” then he walked out of the House.

*********************************************

Kai took a deep and satisfied breath, then used another spell to transport himself to you. He found himself at a Disco. Kai has never seen you before, not even a picture. Damon hid ever since Kai showed up.. but you knew exactly who he was.

You walked right over to him, a drink in hand, and smiled at him, “I guess you’re Kai.”

He looked confused, “And you are?” Still looking around for.. Well, you.

“I am Y/N Salvatore, Damon’s younger sister.” You said, not even a bit afraid. “Damon called me, saying there would be a psycho who wants to kill me.”

Kai stood there, not knowing what to say. No ones ever talked to him like you just did. He didn’t think you would look and act like this. “You are very beautiful and really confident, very different from your brother. At least I don’t have to look for you anymore. Thanks for making my life easier sweetheart.”

You chuckled, “You won’t kill me.”

“And why is that?” he asked smirking.

**************************

In the Woods:

You took his hand in your’s and transported you both into the woods, you wanted to talk to him where it would be quiet and where no one would listen.

“I’m much stronger than you are.  And since you merged with Luke, you’re like a little puppy.” You said sharply, but smirking. “Yes, I know exactly who you are.”

“Well the Puppy wanted to kill your brother just a few minutes ago..” Kai replied.

“Yeah, but you didn’t.”

“Because-”

“-Don’t say because you wanted to kill me first. You wanted to know who I was, you felt my spirit, just like I felt yours.” You responded. “Maybe so you could get my powers too, but definitely  not to kill me.”

You were right, Kai wanted to know why he doesn't felt like the most powerful witch. When he got into the prison world in 1903, he heard that a sister of Vampires was extremely powerful, and over a hundred years old. He knew he needed to find you, so he could steal your powers, but now that he met you, he’s more fascinated by you than he ever imagined.

“I assume,  my brother doesn’t know that you felt me here the entire time.” You asked smiling, while Kai nodded. “Well, if you want my powers, you can try to take them, but it won’t be easy. For either of us, but just so you know, I would be the one to survive, I already freed my brother.. Nice spell by the way.”

“And I guess you never got a call from Damon, because he never told you about me to keep you safe.” You smirked, Kai couldn’t stop smiling, he started to like you more by the second, “So Y/N, what are we going to do now?”

“Glad you asked, first off, you will stop hurting and stop trying to kill  my family and friends-”

“And if I don’t?” Kai asked still with a smile. “Will you rip my throat out?”

“No,” You paused and chuckled, “I’ll torture you and then I’ll call Bonnie so she can do whatever she wants to do with you.” You threatened him. “Or, you could stop being a psycho and we could learn from each other.”

“Like how a girl with Vampire brothers is also a powerful witch, who happens to be over a hundred years old?”

“Maybe.” You smiled. “See you soon.” you said, while you turned around to walk back to your house.

“Wait! Y/N! When can I see you again?” Kai asked shouting.

You turned around and smiled.

“I mean for learning stuff..”

“When you stop being a hot psycho and start only being hot.” You replied and transported yourself to your house, not giving him a chance to respond.
