Super Long AU Compilation

Here’s a really long list of a ton of the more simple/generic AU’s I’ve seen floating around. I made this list for personal reference and figured having so many all in one place might be helpful to others, too. I tried my best to alphabetize but I can’t promise it’s entirely correct. Hope you enjoy!

punkrocknerdfighter  asked:

you think barristan will die in meereen? warsandpoliticsoficeandfire laid out a pretty compelling theory of barristan switching to aegon's side

Thanks for the question, @punkrocknerdfighter.

I cannot speak to that author’s supposed argument. But I can discuss why I think it more likely that Barristan will die in Meereen, before Daenerys returns, than that he will betray her for Young Aegon.

Barristan’s POV arc in ADWD was undoubtedly short, but I believe it proved more than satisfactory in crystallizing the thematic elements of his story in a meaningful way while also setting up his downfall. In my opinion, Barristan’s story has largely concerned the question “What does it mean to serve a king?”, and that question comes to a head for him after Daenerys leaves, when he finds himself serving King Hizdahr. As the court changes under Hizdahr - Daenerys loyalists being dismissed or reduced in importance, replaced by Hizdahr’s men - Barristan grows more uncomfortable, and more willing to listen to Skahaz’s conspiracy to depose him. When Hizdahr refuses to retaliate against the unjust murder of the hostage Groleo - something Barristan thinks even weak Jaehaerys II would have done - Barristan’s move against Hizdahr is assured. The “Kingbreaker” thus becomes the climax, not just for Barristan in ADWD but Barristan as a Kingsguard: he finally does what he never had the courage to do with Aerys or Robert - depose an unworthy king in favor of a rightful queen, or at least ruling in a rightful queen’s name, breaking the blind oath of loyalty expected of a Kingsguard in the cause of justice.

However, Barristan made a critical error in ADWD, one that I think will prove his undoing: trusting the Shavepate. Barristan is not a fool, but he entered into agreement with an unscrupulously ambitious and very deceptive man. It’s the Shavepate who almost certainly poisoned the locusts at Daznak’s Pit, the Shavepate who spent ADWD angling against Hizdahr and his set, and the Shavepate who is now in control of the city proper (with Queen’s Hand Barristan bringing war outside). I have no doubt that the Shavepate is going to take advantage of Barristan’s absence in battle to further his political goals - goals Barristan will find horrifying.

So I do believe TWOW will serve as a great triumph and then an immediate, tragic denouement for the white knight. The released preview chapter “Barristan I” ends with a strong pre-battle speech, one clearly fed from his decades of martial experience - a speech that, for my money, has “heroic last words” written all over it. Hell, I’ll admit that the ending to “Barristan II” of TWOW (never released formally in text, but read aloud) even makes me shiver a little, I like it so; the whole chapter is a stage to show off Barristan’s prowess as a wartime commander, but especially the glee in his voice when he compares the landing of Victarion’s fleet to the hammer and the anvil of the Redgrass Field … well, it’s one of the more stirring moments in ASOIAF for me, even though it’s not even released yet.

How tragic then, for Barristan to return to his adopted city a hero, the savior of Meereen, the loyal and true knight - only to find that, in his absence, the Shavepate has had Hizdahr, Reznak, and the child hostages killed. The Shavepate’s hatred of Hizdahr was an open fact throughout ADWD, and time and again he has called for the the child hostages Daenerys took to be murdered, first in retaliation for the Sons of the Harpy murders and then the murders of the Meereenese hostages with the Yunkai'i (though Daenerys and Barristan refused to countenance the murder of children of whom both had become fond). Barristan will come back to the city to discover the Shavepate has effectively seized control of the Meereenese government in his absence, eliminating his political enemies and their children for good measure - and now that Barristan has helpfully deposed Hizdahr and won the battle for him, Skahaz has no further need to keep the old man around. So I imagine the end of Barristan will come as Barristan goes after Skahaz (perhaps after Skahaz orders him killed), and is cut down by the Shavepate’s loyal Brazen Beasts; tired from the battle, the old knight will be swarmed upon the masked men he already deeply distrusts. Barristan’s ending as such would be completely fitting with something I’ve been trying to emphasize as a recurring theme in ASOIAF: the fall of a protagonist can be tragic while still rooted in that protagonist’s own missteps and failures.

I also prefer this ending for Barristan for the impact it will have on Daenerys. I’ve said before that I could see Daenerys spending two chapters with the Dothraki - one killing Khal Jhaqo, and one being acclaimed in Vaes Dothrak - before returning to Meereen in or around “Daenerys III”. Daenerys will find on her return that her white knight is gone - the only other Westerosi in her crew (without Jorah), the connection between her and her family past, a man she thought she could trust. Wouldn’t you know it, though, a whole new crop of advisors will be there to help - Tyrion, Moqorro, and Marwyn, among their associates. Moreover, unlike Barristan, these men are not going to try to reign in her more violent side: Tyrion sees Daenerys as his means of getting back to Westeros and destroying his hated family; Moqorro and the red priests think Daenerys is the chosen of R'hllor, who feasts on human sacrifice; Marwyn clearly blames the “grey sheep” of the Citadel for killing the dragons before, so he’s about the last person who would try to keep her dragons locked away (on top of his interest in Daenerys as the martial “prince that was promised”). The loss of Barristan will help transition Daenerys into a full “fire and blood” mode I think she needs, thematically speaking, before she can become the humanity-saving hero at the end of ASOIAF.

Thinking on a meta level about this supposed turning cloak for Aegon, it would hardly be narratively surprising at this point for Daenerys to face another betraying counselor. The saga of Jorah’s betrayal and questionable loyalty has been a recurring theme even with Jorah out of her immediate circle, and the defection of Brown Ben Plumm to Yunkai was a major plot point in ADWD. Would it be interesting from a plot perspective to have her betrayed again by another trusted advisor? Certainly, it is possible that GRRM would repeat the same tactic, but there are surely other, more intriguing means Daenerys could face her prophesied “treasons” than by another counselor defecting from her service.

Consider also the structural integrity of TWOW and beyond. If GRRM chooses to bring back all alive POV characters for TWOW - and I cannot see a reason he would not, with the series escalating to its final climax - that means 20 separate main POV characters (compare to the 16 of ADWD, the book with the most separate POV characters so far). Unless each character gets a paltry number of chapters, I think it likely that GRRM will start winnowing down the POVs, killing them off to focus on the truly important viewpoints. Neither Daenerys nor Aegon has a need for Barristan to remain with them: Daenerys has her own POV as well as Tyrion’s in her area, while Aegon currently has JonCon and will soon have Arianne as well (and I’ll eat my hat if the Dornish princess doesn’t endeavor to make herself Aegon’s queen). Three POVs is a substantial amount to look at any character, particularly one who has “doomed” practically stamped on his forehead.

Finally, I very much doubt that the fight between Aegon and Daenerys lasts for a long time; indeed, I can see Daenerys having enough to do in TWOW that she doesn’t even reach Westeros until the very end of that book, and we instead end in King’s Landing with King Aegon VI on the Iron Throne. Would it really be sensible to keep Barristan around so long for a “civil war” that will last, in a generous calculation, for a handful of chapters? What would be the ultimate point to Barristan’s story then - that Daenerys is triumphant, and Barristan should never have left her? Would that be narratively fulfilling? You’re welcome to think so; but I do not.

My Soul, Your Soul-Isaac Lahey

“My soul made love to your soul long before our bodies met. When I first laid my eyes on you I recognized you. You held my future in your hands.”-Anita Krizzan

Teen Wolf Imagine:#56 Prompt:#…None

Word Count:1,228

Warnings: Implied sexual situation

A/n: Here is my first soulmate writing that I promised @vashanatasha I was working on forever ago! And It’s an Isaac (her favorite!) This is kind of a series where I will do a soulmate writing for each character (kind of a series right? (I’m going to start calling it a set of writings, that works right?) ) These are based on quotes about love and soulmates, the other soulmate series I’m working on will be based on AUs I’ve found. I hope you all like it, there are more on their way!

Also thank you to @izzytheninja for being so helpful during the writing process

Klance Fic Rec 4

Please check the archive warnings and fic summaries before reading to make sure you’re gonna be okay with the fic contents!  Spoilers for Season 1 abound.  Plenty of other fics that don’t fit my personal reading preference are on AO3, so you should check them out if you have time! (I tend to avoid character death fics or really short ones.)

More fic recs found here.


Complete

  • Bottle Episode by themoistplinth – everyone is tired of lance and keith constantly arguing, so they all bet on how long they can stand being in the same room together
  • Gravity by Ceryna – a lovely introspective one-shot fic about keith reflecting on what home means to him, and how he feels about lance; it’s very sweet and touching, and i loved all the flashback scenes
  • when i’m without you (i’m something weak) by jojotxt – keith works in a diner and lance is a customer that keeps flirting with him (side note: this author is becoming one of my favourite klance writers bc i’ve liked everything they’ve written so far)
  • it’s all in my head by aknightley – a lovely one-shot fic in which the paladins start feeling each other’s emotions and thoughts while flying their lions… which gets a little awkward for two of the pilots
  • This Night Just Can’t End by leolovesnico – highschool au where keith refuses to go to the prom, but lance manages to convince him to attend by promising that he’ll ruin prom on purpose; spoilers, hella cute fic
  • 3 Words or Less by fairietailed – adorable one-shot where lance, keith, and pidge get drunk, lance is bad at job application questions whereas keith is good at them, and pidge is the best wingperson
  • isolated or not. by Glossolalia – lance and keith almost get killed by giant death worms on a frozen alien planet, but luckily things turn out okay in more ways than one
  • mi casa es su casa by Qitana – adorable one-shot where lance’s room is malfunctioning so he stays in keith’s for a while; keith discovers that having lance around all the time isn’t as bad as he thought
  • ‘Shiro and Keith’s Kickass Fighting Techniques’ by Lance Sanchez by skyestiel – Lance’s idol worship of Shiro leads to taking notes on him, and then Keith, but the notes get less combat-related over time; alternatively, this is a great fic about the birth and death of a rivalry
  • schemin’ on a thing that’s a mirage by ilgaksu – i have trouble describing this beautiful one-shot; it feels nebulous in a good way, and has an undercurrent of determined optimism that suits Lance
  • Homecoming by Thesis – [warnings: shiro is dead, lots of talking about death and grief if that’s not your thing] – the war is over and the paladins are back on earth, but victory feels hollow when only four out of five made it home; lots of angst, but there’s some catharsis at the end
  • one more off key anthem (let your teeth sink in) by maryams – ok i am not-so-secretly urban fantasy trash so enjoy this short and silly vampire-keith and werewolf-lance one-shot fic
  • Attempted Romance by Ginkumo – modern au where Lance tries to surprise Keith but there are slight… complications
  • I Ain’t Afraid of No Ghost by Evil_Panda_Roar – ok i admit that i am a chicken and reading this at like 230 am was personally a bad idea, but for people out there who like slightly scary stories, this is one about keith and lance staying overnight in a haunted hospital together

WIPs

  • Cactus by PinkHitman – au where keith moves to a new place for his new job, and lance is the florist across the street from his apartment; i’m looking forward to reading their future interactions bc the ones so far are pretty darn cute
  • In the Valley Below by Metis_Ink – a fun fantasy au where the lions are actual magic lions of the altean kingdom, and lance is in charge of training them; everything’s fine until the fire nation attacks some ambassadors from another country show up
  • Catch Me If You Can by MilkTeaMiku – a sequel to My Youth Is Yours (now complete! it’s so cute you should read it); this time, Keith is the one who turns into a baby, but luckily Lance is a self-proclaimed ‘baby whisperer’
  • Camp Lake Altea by CheckeredCloth – summer camp au i didn’t know i needed, where the voltron crew are all counselors; even if you don’t have summer camp counselor nostalgia like me, this fic is a fun read!
  • Crossroads by manamune – after a near-death experience, Keith ends up in an alternate universe where he and Lance are dating, and he tries to figure out a way back home
  • i bet you look good on the dancefloor by xShieru – [warnings: nothing explicitly nsfw that i can recall, but the humour can be pretty lewd] – dance au where lance tries to pick up dancing again after the disappearance of his idols
Tailspinners

I was talking to @omgericzimmermann about Holsom AU ideas, and then I saw this post about a guy reading Harry Potter to a dog in Central Park and my first thought was “It’s Holster!” and then this happened. Please imagine our favorite giant blond dork surrounded by his pack of elderly literacy dogs. They get story time every day, even if they’re not working an event. He insists they have to keep in practice. (They’re currently working on The Raven Cycle for their at-home reading. The Adam and Ronan characters remind Holster of these two bickering idiots on his college hockey team.)

Now also on AO3.


A new Youth Services librarian* had started at the local library over the summer, and he was enthusiastic about his outreach programs. Adam didn’t think he’d ever had someone try to hard-sell him on doing a literacy event before. It was like the guy didn’t believe he could take yes for an answer.

Adam held his hands up to try to stem the flow of words. “Mr. Bittle–”

“Oh, Eric, please!”

“Eric. Seriously, just tell me the dates and I’ll be there, I swear! With as many dogs as you think the library can reasonably accommodate. I’m honestly thrilled at the opportunity, and I’m looking forward to the possibility of this being a regular thing.”

“I–really?”

“Yes, really, I promise. This is exactly the kind of community visibility I’ve been trying to build since I started. Your predecessor was just, uh…” He searched desperately for something tactful to say.

“More traditional in her approach,” Eric offered.

“Sure, let’s go with that.”

Eric grinned at him and handed him an already drawn up schedule for the day. “So it won’t be until October, because I still have to coordinate a bunch of other stuff, plus I wanted to have flu shots, because they’re really so important, and I’m not just saying that because I’m the one who has to work with the adorable little germ vectors all day, but I’m really looking forward to having you there! If you want to come by sometime in the next several weeks, we can figure out the best place to have the dog reading stations that are kind of isolated in case there are people with allergies, which I really hope won’t be too big of a problem because this is such a great way to encourage literacy, it really is, and…”

“Whoa, whoa, I got you, it’s fine. Several of my dogs are even poodle crosses whose families gave them up after they realized even designer hypoallergenic dogs weren’t for them. It’s a thing I’m prepared for, believe me. Plus, for kids who are extra allergic and don’t want to be left out, I have a betta fish.”

“Really?”

“Really. He’s super colorful, and he swims right up to the side of the glass when people are around. He’s the most dog-like fish I could have imagined.”

“Oh, I’m so glad. This is going to be great! I’ll see you soon!”

anonymous asked:

Sorry I know you said you needed fluff but I got l have an angsty request;;; the rfa breaking up with MC and why they would do it. Please and thank you!

There are some characters I can’t see ever breaking up with MC, so I switched it to MC breaking up with them for a few.

Jumin

- he works so much

- you feel like you never have any time with him

- and when you do, he’s controlling

- so, one day, while he’s at work, you pack up all your things at his house and stop by his office

- when you into his office he smiles slightly and says he’d like to talk but he’s busy, maybe later

- you shake your head, saying this won’t take long

- he sighs and agrees to listen, glancing back down at the papers on his desk

- you inhale deeply before starting. “Look, I like you a lot, I really do, but I feel like I’m putting my all into this relationship while you’re hardly even trying and expect me to be everything you want,” you had been rehearsing what you would say the whole way here

- he frowns, setting his papers down, fully paying attention now. “Are you breaking up with me?”

- you nod, staring at the ground

- “When you say I didn’t try with this relationship, I have been. I’ve talked to you a lot about my feelings and gotten you things-”

- “I didn’t start dating you to be your counselor and get expensive gifts!” You interrupt, covering your face and taking a breath. “Just, I need at least a break right now.”

- he nods, going back to his papers and you can feel all the walls he had taken down for you going back up

- your chest clenches but you know this is the right decision for now, so turn and leave

Zen

- he sighs, running a hand through his hair and thinking over his decision one last time

- he doesn’t want to break up with you, but you’re not supporting him or his career at all

- he feels like you’re only dating him for the attention

- he hits the call button on your contact with a sullen face. “Hey, can we meet up sometime today? Or can I stop by? I need to talk to you face to face.”

- you tell him he can come by but he refuses to explain why he’s coming over

- when he gets there, you offer for him to come in but he shakes his head and says this will be short

- “Okay, so, I think we need to break up. You never show any interest in my career and hardly support any of my decisions. I like you, but I need more support from the person I’m dating. I’m not just a ticket to meet other celebrities and get attention from the media.”

- you blink, trying to process what he said

- “I… never thought of you as some kind of ticket,” you respond softly, unable to argue the rest of what he said

- he closes his eyes, taking a deep breath, “It would’ve been nice if you’d acted like that,” he mumbles before turning away, wiping his eyes

Yoosung

- you’re at his house doing homework while he plays games

- you don’t notice that he’s doing very poorly today for some reason

- “Hey, MC?” He asks suddenly, looking away from his screen that said he’s died

- “Hm?” You grunt, hardly glancing up from your work

- “Can,” he pauses to take a breath, “can we talk?”

- “This homework is due tomorrow…”

- “Please? This is important.”

- you sigh and set your pencil down, looking up at him to ask what he needs to talk about

- he scratches the back of his head, “well, I think we should take a break of something,” he trails off

- you straighten up, staring at him, “why?”

- “It’s just,” he stares at his hands, “I don’t think I like you anymore?” he groans and covers his face. “I mean, I like you, but, not in a romantic way.”

- you look down at your work, clenching your jaw and nodding slightly. “Okay,” you say hoarsely, quickly gathering your things to leave

- he watches you sadly, wanting to apologize but assuming that wouldn’t be helpful right now

Jaehee

- “MC, we need to talk,” she says, sitting down in front of you.

- you look up from your book with a frown, she’s not usually this serious. “Sure, what’s up?”

- “I can’t keep working with you,” she sighs.

- she’s been considering this for a long time, and doesn’t want to cut you out of the business, but she needs to work with someone who’s serious about the success of the café otherwise there’s no source of income. She also isn’t so sure about her relationship with you either, as you’re not doing a lot for that either.

- “What?”

- “You don’t put in enough effort, I’ve asked you to do more, but I’m doing almost all of your work along with mine and I just don’t have the time or energy for that,” she explains “and frankly, you could put in more effort with our own relationship too.”

- “Are, are you breaking up with me? And firing me?” you ask, staring at her in shock.

- she looks down at the table, staying silent for a moment before nodding slowly. “Yes,” she says sadly before inhaling and looking back up to you. “Yes, you can stay here until you get another job and can move out, but I can’t keep dating you when you’re not trying.”

- “I-” you press a hand against your head, looking around. “Okay,” you finally say softly, having trouble fully accepting what’s happening.

- “Thank you,” she says, standing up, “and, I’m sorry.”

Seven

- you’ve already packed your things and put them in your car

- you step into the room where Seven is working

- “Hey, Saeyoung?”

- he doesn’t respond

- you sigh, running your hand through your hair. “I’m moving out, Saeyoung.”

- that gets his attention

- he jerks his head up to stare at you, horrified. “What? Why?”

- “Just now is a good example,” you mumble, looking at your feet.

- “I was listening to music, I’m sorry if I ignored something you said,” he says desperately.

- “It’s not just that,” you sigh, pinching the bridge of your nose. “You either take nothing seriously or are completely stoic, there’s no in between. And you disappear for days with no warning, I never know if you’re going to come back alive!”

- “I’m sorry,” he says, not able to think of anything else to say. “Just, please don’t leave me, I’ll change, I promise.”

- you stay silent for a moment before shaking your head and turning away, “sorry,” you mumble.

A Ghost of You

Part of the 5 Years Later series (x)

Warnings: Sad :(

A/N: All characters from the potterverse belong to J.K. Rowling

Italics are either your internal thoughts, a letter, or a daydream. I put a couple (~*~*) to set apart the daydream

Meet your cat, Snuffles (x) :D He’s a pretty chill cat!

Masterlists Here (x) (x)

You knew it was impolite of you to leave, but you couldn’t stay any longer. Every word that came out of Fred’s mouth pierced your heart. You couldn’t help but compare Fred to Harry. Even though Harry insisted he wanted to work alone, he reluctantly accepted his friend’s help. What was so special about Fred’s line of work that made him shut them out? The threat of death and the danger of going against You-Know-Who were accepted weights upon your friends’ shoulders. What was the danger in one more risk?

When you arrived at your flat, you were surprised to find it empty aside from your cat, Snuffles (x). You discovered the small black and white cat meowing outside the Weasley’s home a week after Fred died or vanished rather. Snuffles was ragged and thin then, completely opposite of the cat that stood in front of you now meowing for attention.

“Hello Snuffles , have you seen Elliot around?” you asked.  Elliot was your boyfriend. You met him during your job orientation at the ministry. He helped you get back on your feet while you mourned for Fred. He recommended a counselor to you and let you cry for hours about Fred when the pain became unbearable. He surprised you with chocolates on your desk and organized massive dinners to help you not feel alone. Your friendship didn’t instantly blossom into a relationship  that was all Ginny. After watching you mope around for two years, Ginny grew tired of seeing you unhappy. At one of your work parties she saw how you and Elliot connected and decided to play match maker. She pushed you to ask him to lunch or her quidditch games. When you started making excuses to not invite him Ginny would scold you saying If you don’t ask him, I know five other girls that will. It took another year to convince yourself that you were ready to move on, and you were grateful for Elliot’s patience.  You remembered repeating the phrase Fred would want me to be happy over and over to yourself every time Elliot invited you out. Now you couldn’t imagine a life without him. You were head over heels in love with Elliot. He was handsome, funny, and spoiled you rotten with affection. Both your parents and the Weasley’s approved wholeheartedly of him. George sometimes consulted him for business advice, since Elliot worked in the department of magical cooperation at the ministry. Ron, Harry, and Elliot sometimes took guys trips down to quidditch matches for the weekend. Now after a year of dating, you decided to move in together at a cozy two bedroom flat in London. However, now that Fred was back part of you felt guilty dating Elliot. There is nothing to be guilty for you told yourself. Fred let you believe he was dead for five years. He let his friends, family, and girlfriend suffer for years. I deserve to be with someone who was there for me and made me happy. You made your way to the kitchen counter and found a note written in neat handwriting sitting on the counter.

Darling,

Something came up at work. Hopefully I will be back later this evening. I made your favorite, steak and potatoes, and left it in the fridge for you. Owl me if you need me.

I love you,

Elliot

You considered owling him, no doubt he would come home in an instant if he knew you were upset. However, you needed to calm down first before you would be able to tell him anything. Perhaps a nice long soak in the bath and dinner would help. Though you didn’t have much of an appetite now, perhaps you would have one after you calmed down. After promising Snuffles you would feed him soon, you made your way to your bathroom and started filling the tub making sure to drop a few soap petals in. Upon returning you found your cat patiently waiting by his bowl for food. Snuffles must’ve sensed your grim mood and decided to extend his patience . Had this been any other day, your cat would’ve hoped onto the counter and started to lick the fruit in the fruit basket and glare at you when you told him to get down. You nodded your head in a silent thank you for your cat’s generosity and proceeded to fill his bowl.

When you returned to the bathroom, your tub was full and brimming with bubbles. As you sank into the tup, your mind filled with thoughts of Fred. You remembered the summer you spent together, the year before he supposedly died.


~*~*~*~*~

“Come on Y/N the water’s fine. Why are you so reluctant to jump in?” Fred frowned. You looked into the water. Normally, you were all for swimming, but that was in clear water. However, this water was anything but clear. The lake was full of opaque chocolate colored water that hid everything that lay bellow the surface. What if there was a big fish that would pull you down the moment you jumped in?  What if there was a squid in the water…were there fresh water squids? “Y/N as much as I love seeing you in that sultry swim suit, I’m positive that it would look even better under water.” You couldn’t help but giggle at Fred.

“Fred, what if something drags me underwater?” you asked as you sat down on the dock.

“Babe, I promise you that my splashing and screaming scared off any scary fish,” Fred reassured you. “The only fish you have to fear is me.” Before you could recognize what was happening, Fred pulled you off the dock kicking and screaming. After a minute of flailing, you realized Fred was cradling you in his arms.

“Fred, that was terrifying,” You frowned crossing your arms.

“Hey, I got you in the water though didn’t I?” when your scowl didn’t budge Fred continued. “I’m sorry babe, I really am, but at least I get to hold you.” You felt color rushing to your cheeks as you became aware of Fred’s arms around you.

“Fine, but that still doesn’t get you off the hook for pulling me into the murky lake,” you teased. Fred smirked and freed you from his arms forcing you to stand on the muddy ground. Before you could protest, his lips were on yours slowly filling your body with warmth. As his lips traced your jawline, his hands dug into your back making you let out a low moan in pleasure. When his lips reached that tender spot on your neck, you swooned into his arms that were outstretched to catch you.

“Oy! Lovebirds,” you broke away from Fred to discover an annoyed George, embarrassed Ron, and smirking Ginny. “This lake is not your personal love pool. Keep it kiss free.” Your cheeks were definitely beyond cherry red now. instead of apologizing, Fred began laughing a hearty laugh.

“I know you’re just jealous I have Y/N and Angelina couldn’t visit today.” Rather than dignify his brother with a response, George proceeded to jump in, dousing the two of you with gallons of dirty lake water.

“We can’t let him get away with that right Y/N?” Fred winked as he swam toward his brother. The whole lake broke out into an outrageous water battle for the rest of the afternoon. Water flew everywhere, and by the end you didn’t care about whether the lake was clear or murky.

When you emerged from the lake and Fred covered you with a towel you couldn’t help but thank him for getting you in the water.

“Thanks for getting me in the water; I had a great time,” you laughed as you placed a kiss on his cheek.

“What did I tell you Y/N?” Fred smiled. “I’m full of good ideas including this one.” His cool lips found your neck once more, leaving a trail of kisses up to your lips.


~*~*~*~

When you woke from your daydream, the water was no longer warm and most of the bubbles had subsided. Your cat sat on your sink watching your face intently. No point in staying any longer in a lukewarm bath. Quickly, you finished washing yourself up and slipped into your comfy pjs and the fluffiest robe you could find. An hour had passed while you were in the tub, but you were still not hungry for dinner. You had too many emotions in your head. Fred was your first love, and your only love before Elliot. Would your relationship ever return to its former glory, one full of laughter and happy memories? What if all you could see when you look at him was pain and his lifeless body in the hall? Your heart ached from the reopened wound, and you wished you could quell this pain. The longer you thought about it there the more painful it felt. You curled up into a ball on your bed, the emotions from today taking a toll on your body. You cried for the man you lost, the secrets that he kept, and the future that was taken from you. The Fred that stood before you was a ghost. Though you could see him and hear him, he was not someone you could hold close again.

The story continues (x)

Notes: At first this was going to be a Reader x Peter fanfic but it was really hard for me to do it so I created a main character, but you can imagine it’s you.

The story takes place in 1990.


PD. I am really sorry if my English kinda sucks, but it’s not my first language.

I would also love to get some feedback, write me if you liked it or if you hated it, please reblog.



I had discovered my mutation after a The Cure concert, it was late, the subway was closed and I had spent all my money in band merch so Nate (my best friend) and I decided to walk home, stupid decision.


A guy with a gun came out of an alley and took our wallets, he got really mad when he realized we had no money so he shoot Nate; long story short, I panicked and somehow managed to stop time, the bullet stopping mid-air, and moved Nate out of the way, two days later I recived a letter from the Xavier’s School.


It took me three weeks to convince my parents that going to the Xavier’s was a good idea, of course they didn’t know about my mutation, and they were really dissappointed, specially my abuela, because I was supposed to start Law School on August, but they ended up being realy supportive.


It was my first day at Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters, after meeting Professor Xavier, I had Counseling with Professor Kitty, she gave me my class schedule and promised to assign me a room after lunch time.


At the cafeteria I stood in the line and waited patiently, a slice of pizza and a large Pepsi, I managed to find a seat next to the window, I took my Walk Man out of my pocket, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers began to fill my ears while I ate.


Suddenly, my Walk Man disappeared and a guy was siting in front of me, he was wearing my headphones.

He had big brown eyes, silver hair and was wearing a Pink Floyd t-shirt, he looked a couple of years older than me.


“What the fuck is wrong with you?” I shouted as soon as I realized he had took my music away. “Do you usally do this?”.


“Red Hot Chilli Peppers, I like them.” He smiled and I felt my heart beating faster.


“Duh! Who doesn’t?” I rolled my eyes and tried to reach my Walk Man.


“They’re fine, but, have you listened to The Clash? I mean, they’re amazing”


“London Calling is one of my favorite albums” I admitted, he seemed pleased.


“First day at Xavier’s, what’s your name?”


“Zelda Ruiz, and I assume they call you Kleptomaniac”.


“Not even close, Quicksilver.”


I laughed and took a sip of my Pepsi.


“So, Mr. Quicksilver, The Cure.”


“Saw them live last month, my favorite album is Disintegration.”


“You kidding? Mine too! I absolutely love Lullaby, it’s one of my favorite songs.”


“Miss Ruiz, you have a really good musical taste, what about Alice in Chains?”


I was about to answer when the bell rang, lunch time was over and I had to meet up with Counselor Kitty to get my room assignment.


“Can I have my Walk Man back?” I asked him while  picked up my things and packed them in my bag, he handed it to me, there was this bried moment in which his fingers touched mine and it felt like an electric shock.


“See you in class Miss Ruiz.” He smiled and I couldn’t help to smile on my way to the Counselor’s office. I also liked the way he pronounced my last name.


When I arrived to the Counselor’s office, a tall girl, with white bangs was standing next to C. Kitty.


“Zelda, meet your roomie” The Counselor said.


“Hey, my name is Anne” She smiled and gave me a handshake, I noticed she was wearing black leather gloves, she seemed nice.


“Hey, I’m Zelda, but you already know that” I laughed a little.


Anne helped me to carry my things to the room.


“We have 10 minutes before our next class, so, tell me about you.” She said sitting on her bed as I

began to tape a The Cure poster to my side of the wall.


“Well, I’m from Queens, my parents are mexican, they wanted me to be a lawyer but I really want to play music, they were really dissapointed when I enrolled here, specially my abuela, she kind of hates me now.”


“They don’t know about your mutation then?” I shooked my head.


“They believe I won a scolarship here because I’m sort of a Chemistry genious.” We laughed, she helped me to tape a few posters to the wall before the bell rang again.


We rushed to the classroom, it was a blessing sharing classes with her, otherwise, I would have found myself lost in the labrynth of hallways.


“What class do we have next?” I asked her, History with Professor Logan was finishing.


“Music with Maximoff.” She said, I laughed.


“Wait, do we really have Music? I thought this was more like a superhero academy.”


“We have normal school subjects, like History, Math or Music, but we also have special classes depending on our mutations so we can learn how to control them.”


“And how is this Maximoff guy? Please tell me we don’t have to play Ode to Joy in flute because that brings back too many Middle School memories.”


“Absolutely not!” Anne laughed “He’s really funny, he likes rock, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones… that kind of thing.”


“He won me at Pink Floyd.”


We walked to the classroom and sat next to each other, a blonde guy with blue eyes sat in front of her, she introduced him to me, Bobby.


The classroom began to fill with students and I was doodling in my notebook when a familiar voice snapped me out of my thoughts.


“Class, today we have a new student.” They Quicksilver guy from the cafeteria was standing in front of me. I felt my heart beating faster. “She’s Zelda Ruiz from New York.”


“Um, hi everyone.” I said shyly.


“Well Zelda,  I’m Professor Maximoff.” He smiled and I felt my heart beating so fast I was sure every single person in the room could hear it.

Carisi-centric thoughts on Ep 18x03

False alarm! The old Sonny is back :D

Let’s all just pretend the first two boring episodes don’t exist, let’s ignore everything that happened like the writers clearly are, and let’s focus on the SVU we know and love! The SVU with a bit of humor, continuity, interesting cases and camaraderie between the characters.

We had Barba helping Benson by prosecuting a case for which she felt so strongly, we had Amanda covering for Sonny when he went off to his job interview, and we also had Barba setting up said interview for Sonny. Plus we had that hilarious moment of Liv and Amanda sharing that look and making fun of Sonny (because sometimes he deserves it, lol).

This is the SVU I signed up for. Not just a) the arrest and b) the trial. These people are friends. A team. I loved seeing them all looking out for each other except Benson, omg sis, you’re gonna ruin Barba’s career if you’re not careful and also except Fin who was barely there, but he totally had that awesome line about Melle Mel so it was worth it

Sonny and Continuity

So. Much. Continuity!

Sonny loves food! Sonny loves pickles, to be precise. no comment on the implication/innuendo

Sonny sides with Liv, his idol, and they both stand up for the victims! (he was the only cop to think this could be seen as rape, along with Liv. Amanda and Fin’s opinions were a little different, lol.)

Sonny aces interrogations by pretending he’s just like the perps, to get them to open up! (by the way, do we believe his story? On one hand, that could be a lie to cozy up to the perp. On the other hand, Sonny would. On the other other hand, we need to hear Peter’s Italian accent at some point, preferably when he goes undercover.)

Sonny displays empathy! That scene, with the kid, it was so lovely. It was filmed in a lovely way too, all softness and warm colors, and Peter looked so handsome, but it wasn’t just the visual. It was Sonny’s face. The kindness radiating from it. The old Sonny, who always wants to make people feel better.  The Sonny who always has a relevant story from his own life (or his sisters’ lives) and can offer all sorts of wisdom about any situation. The Sonny who jokes about SAT words to make a worried son crack a smile.

That’s the real Sonny.

Oh, and we also got some Sonny backstory! I gotta say, the way Sonny said, “my mother… (curiously pregnant pause) my mother didn’t even know I applied to college”, that was kind of weird. Suggestive. Maybe the writers are retconning his wholesome family life? Or maybe Sonny is just a normal person who has the occasional fight with his mom? Especially as a teen? Interesting, as is the fact we finally know where Sonny went to college! brb incorporating all of this in my fics

Sonny and the Law

The writers remembered Sonny is a lawyer! And a cop! And they remembered it a lot! Like, in every other scene! Color me impressed. If they actually use that meeting with that Brooklyn ADA as a starting point for a character arc for Sonny, I will be even more impressed. We could hear he got a job offer. We could hear he’s considering it. We could see the others trying to get him to stay (Liv and Amanda) or trying to convince him it would be a wise move for his future (Barba).

I’m a little disappointed we didn’t get to see Sonny’s interview, if only because I wanted to hear more about his reasons for taking the meeting in the first place. Timeline issues aside, I assume the ADA spot in Brooklyn is still open. Sonny did say he’s just ‘seeing what’s out there,’ but was that an honest answer? Rollins may think (and I may agree) that he looks like a cop, and that being a lawyer is just a bonus, but Sonny sure is acting like someone who wants to be a lawyer at some point.

I get the feeling Sonny might be downplaying his potential desire to switch careers. I think there’s a good chance that’s something he really wants. This is a guy who actually finished law school and passed the bar exam, while working full time as a detective. And now he’s going to interviews? With his shiny new license to practice law? And he’s not telling Liv about it? He’s not even telling her about the outcome of the interview, after the fact?

Why?

Maybe it’s because the interview went well. Maybe it’s because he wants to become a prosecutor, or he wants to seriously consider that possibility seriously, and he doesn’t want others to influence his decision. I just think Sonny is going through way too many hoops, and I’m not sure he would be doing that just to “see what’s out there.” Law school alone, yes. It’s a second degree, it can help his career (even in terms of salary, I assume), it can help him become a better cop, like Liv once said.  But actually getting a license and going to interviews? Hm.

I hope this ‘interview’ won’t end up being a throwaway detail. The fact Amanda kept talking about Sonny being a lawyer, and the fact Liv flat-out asked him about the interview (and the fact Fin made a hilarious “ooooooh, dude you’re busted!” face in the background, srsly check that out), that’s acknowledgment. It means this isn’t just a Sonny storyline. Everyone is involved. I hope that’s a sign that the show will revisit it, unlike Barba’s death threats.

Speaking of:

The Barisi Corner

Barba set up that interview for Sonny! That’s a wonderful callback to Barba’s comment in the finale. Back then, I said it was so supportive and affirming to have Barba casually say, ‘I know you want to be an ADA, and I heard a spot opened up in Brooklyn, so I thought of you.’ That shows how highly Barba thinks of Sonny. It proves Barba trusts Sonny now, even if it took him a while.

But that also proves another thing I mentioned in my finale episode analysis; Sonny and Barba interact offscreen. There have always been hints of that; like when Sonny shadowed Barba and said, “you know how I’ve been talking to you about shadowing,” or like in the finale, when Barba asked, “still want to be an ADA?” as though that’s a conversation they’ve had before. Like that’s something Sonny actually told him. That’s why Barba said “still,” like he already knew Sonny wanted to be an ADA and he was checking to make sure that still applied, as a segue to bring up that position in Brooklyn.

And now, in this episode, we have the continuation of that story. We have Sonny and Barba coordinating an entire interview (sadly offscreen). We have Barba calling (possibly) a friend of his, on Sonny’s behalf, and saying “I have a very promising recent law graduate here, and I’d like you to talk to him.” We have Barba telling Sonny the interview is all set up. We have Sonny thanking Barba, maybe by taking him out to dinner ahem. Seriously though, you just know Sonny thanked Barba for landing him that interview. That’s a whole lot of offscreen contact. And it shows just how much their relationship has evolved.

I do wonder, though. How did that interview come about? Did Sonny reach out to Barba, maybe a few weeks after the finale (how long has it been, anyway?) and said, “hey, counselor, about that spot you mentioned, is there a chance you could hook me up with an interview?” Or did Barba bring it up, after giving Sonny some time to grieve? Did Barba approach Sonny and say, “even if you’re not sure, it couldn’t hurt to go in for an interview. Just to see how you feel. It will be good for your career.”?

I am in love with the idea that Liv and Amanda might be trying to keep Sonny at SVU because they love having him around, while Barba is thinking about Sonny’s future. Barba is very career-oriented, compared to Sonny who’s family-oriented (work family, as Peter Scanavino loves to say), and maybe he thinks he should gently push Sonny into taking that extra step. The next logical step, after getting a law degree and a license. Maybe Barba knows that Sonny has emotional attachments which are holding him back. Maybe Barba thinks being a cop is “less than” being an ADA (because he’s better than everybody, let’s be real), and he wants better for Sonny, too.

I truly wish we get to have at least one more conversation between Sonny and Barba about Sonny’s future. Fingers crossed.

Also, boyfriends doing interrogations together :D

Oh and, do you think Barba told Liv about Sonny’s interview? Can you imagine? Maybe Barba thought she knew, and he just mentioned it offhandedly. And then Liv had a record scratch moment. I do love the idea that Barba and Liv sit around and talk about Sonny. Remember last season, when they were joking, all “omg Liv are you sure you can spare him?” and “lol yeah you can keep him”? Now we’re at “omg Rafael, you can’t poach my best guy!” and “Liv, you know he deserves better” :’)

Barba Thoughts 

Real quick: is Barba still getting death treats lol? Will that ever be revisit… wait never mind, the show just remembered Sonny was a lawyer, I can’t ask for too much. One of these days, they might even remember Amanda has a kid. Or Fin has a grandkid. Or Fin wants to make Sergeant. One step at a time.

One thing I noticed is that, in the past, Barba has often been portrayed as the “loose cannon” ADA, the brilliant guy who tries farfetched cases and often wins. Other times, he’s been shown as the guy who’s always facing tremendous political pressure and is the “black sheep” ADA who doesn’t care about politics, just the law. And now he is someone with a “sterling reputation” who has something to lose, so he relents? I will personally pretend he relented because deep down he agreed with the judge, and he only took on this case because of Liv.

Speaking of, Barba is such a big softie. He tried an entire case to placate (aw) his BFF Liv, and he helped out his BF Sonny with landing that interview. This episode didn’t just give us the old Sonny, it gave us the old Barba, too. I said it last week, Barba is brilliant but not brutal. This week, we got to see that. Barba is kinder now, he’s changed now, and he puts his friends over the law, even, as long as there’s a good cause.

Stray Thoughts

Damn, now that‘s how you do a DICK WOLF. I mean, I was like, oh cool, a lighthearted epis-OH SHIT. Poor kid.

Speaking of, gurllllll, you WANTED you son to go to Hudson? And, my dude, you thought Hudson was “prestigious”? The one thing that almost makes me feel better about the kid’s death is that he probably would have ended up dead anyway, if he had attended Hudson U. But seriously, that ending almost felt unearned. An overly tragic ending to an otherwise even-keeled and very solid episode.

@nbcsvu more of this please!

Don’t do this

An Ellision one shot based on this gifset. I know some people think it’s weird to ship the characters but I say ship who you want to, ship who you like. Here’s some in character Hartbig. 

other fics here follow up fic

“Just don’t.” Elise swallows, but it’s too late. Words have already been exchanged. Ones she can’t take back. Maxine mutters something about not wanting to be in the middle of this and tells the kids to follow her to the mess. 

They’re suddenly alone in the craft hut. It’s terrifying. Brown eyes try not to meet blue ones but once it happens, she’s glued there, melting. 

“I can’t believe you brought the letters to camp.” Elise’s voice is low, thick with previously repressed emotion “How long have they been here?” Allison turns away, pondering the answer. She paces a little bit. Admittedly, Elise’s return had scared her, but they made it all the way through the summer. Until now. She bites her lip.

“Well, babe,” Allison starts.

Elise immediately cringes, remembering the last time she called her that, beneath camp blankets, quietly. Why do I still remember? We were seventeen. 

“All eight years.” 

Fuck. Allison faces her again, no longer nervous. She likes to be honest, and Elise deserves the truth. Elise wan’t the one who ended it, after all. It was distance that ended it. Unfairly, Allison finds.

“Because the only time I let myself think back to the best summers of my life,” in other words, you, “is when I’m here. At camp.” Elise has just been hit by a train of emotions, sweating. Why do I want to kiss her? This is more dramatic than catching her cheating fiancé; it really is. Because you loved her more. That’s not a thought Elise wants to have. “Are you going to just stare at me with puppy eyes, or do you have something to say?” Elise has everything to say, but she doesn’t know where to start. Also, she forgot how to speak.

Allison moves closer and both hearts pound, excited, but unsure. She leans into the blonde’s ear. The one she sucked all summer of their final year of high school. “Think back, Elise. Think back and tell me you don’t want it to happen again.” Fuck. Elise was expecting a lot of things, but not that. “Seriously, think about it.” She does.

Thirteen: when she had her first kiss. On that final day of August. 

Fourteen: when she started crying in the car after her parents picked her up. When her brother asked “Why do you love camp so much? It’s just the gross outdoors, which you supposedly hate.” The answer was partially Max, partially the fun, but almost entirely Allison.

Fifteen: when she started pondering ‘love’, and then Allison slid a letter under her pillow that said it. They almost had sex, but waited.

Sixteen: when they definitely had sex. The woodshed is useful. They used it every damn day for three months. They fucked like rabbits the first day of camp, the first second they saw each other. Elise walked out of the shed failing to not smile and Allison trailed behind, thrilled. This is when Maxine saw Allison wipe her mouth after exiting and finally caught on. Shocked, but impressed. 

Seventeen: when Max magically snuck wine in to camp and they all got drunk for the first time. Out at the beach, which they managed to sneak over to at roughly two AM, knowing that a good portion of counselors had a similar idea up at the cabin. The redhead went back at four and they promised to follow, but instead made out until the sun rose, and blamed being up so early on a morning walk. They got in trouble but it was worth it. So worth it. The counselors had grown generally aware of the love affair, but were ultimately powerless. 

Eighteen: when she cried to Maxine over the phone because she realized it was over. Max told her it didn’t have to be. It was.

***

But now it isn’t anymore. At least Allison hopes not. She stares at her favorite pair of brown eyes, all eyes, “Thoughts?”

Elise blinks and inhales before finally saying it. Saying the words. “I loved you so much, Allison.” Elise isn’t smiling because it’s very difficult to admit something as such. Allison is, which soon prompts the taller girl to do the same. They’re just staring at each other now, unable to stop. Elise asks “did you love me, too?” Allison practically scoffs at the question, but stops herself because Elise is fragile.

Instead she simply nods and says, “More than anyone in the world.” Elise feels relief wash over her entire body and then Allison looks at her with purpose and grabs her waist. Just centimeters from her lips she says quietly “still do.” 

Elise leans in for the kiss. 

They used to fuck in woodsheds but today it’s a craft hut. Maxine would surely roll her eyes. She also would’ve bet her job that they’d do it.

Stealth Weeb "Iso" versus Scary Girl "Galaxy"

I attended Girl Scout camp for many years, and when I finally aged out of the programs I decided to become a counselor. However, I was too young for any of the paid counselor jobs, so I applied to the month-long “Counselor in Training” program and got in. Basically we were still considered “campers” by safety standards so we still had to go around in lines of two (buddy lines) and all that junk, but we could lead songs and help out, and during our fourth week we were assigned to other program units to help out with the younger campers. We didn’t have the authority of paid counselors but the little girls looked up to us since we were older and had “camp nicknames” like the counselors. I was Pepperkat, and the weeb in the story is Iso. There was also one horrible, horrible girl called Galaxy, who comes into the weeb story also and made my life hell besides. And a strange girl called Shell who was a little bit “special”. Some other girls were there too, but they aren’t so important. We were all fifteen or sixteen.

The Play’s the Thing AU - Celebration

The Play’s the Thing AU

Felicity was still riding the post-curtain high at the cast and crew afterparty, the whole experience swiftly developing a gauze-and-bubble-wrap surreality even as she couldn’t quite believe that it was done, months of preparation and after only a few days, over.

Over.

She should be relieved, shouldn’t she? She had what she’d set out for, a fine credit to her college applications in the extracurriculars column. Her counselor could hardly find fault with Felicity’s qualifications after this. And she’d—she’d never have to do it again. One and done, right?

A relief.

“It was so much fun having you with us for this, Felicity,” McKenna was saying, reaching out to squeeze the hand that didn’t have hold of a cup of punch. The grin on McKenna’s face was honest, but the gleam in her eye was pure ambition. “You kicked ass, you really did. If you change your mind, we’re doing a musical in the spring.”

“Oh,” Felicity hedged, laughing nervously and pulling her hand from McKenna’s to toy with the hem of her dark red dress. “I’ll, uh. I’m flattered, it was so much more fun than I expected. But I’ll probably be too busy, you know, finals and the last round of ACT/SAT.”

McKenna’s smile tucked rueful at the corners, her large dark eyes fond even as she seemed to be accepting Felicity’s reluctance. “Oh, yeah, sure. You’re aiming for MIT, right?”

Felicity grinned, a little strained, and raised twined index and middle fingers. “If I can get all my scholarships, yup.”

McKenna nodded solemnly. She was a cop’s daughter, and her mother’s family may have gotten her into Starling Prep, but she wasn’t in the same tax bracket as most of their classmates, even if she wasn’t quite in Felicity’s lean financial straits. “Well, hey. Theatre can be an excellent outlet, if the stress gets high.” Felicity groaned good naturedly, and McKenna grinned, lightly punching her shoulder. “I’m just saying! We could use you.”

Felicity shook her head. “Maybe next time I can be on lighting.”

McKenna beamed triumphantly. “You said next time.”

“Oh, no,” Felicity laughed in alarm. “That was not a promise!”

“Uh huh,” McKenna nodded. “We’ll see. She turned and looked to the left quickly, and her smile went smug. “Maybe your costar can better convince you.”

“Tommy?” Felicity’s heart thumped a little faster, her empty palm smoothing nervously down the front of her dress as she looked in the direction McKenna had, but she didn’t spot him. She bit her lips together and shook her head, telling herself to get a grip. “I didn’t realize he’d decided to come after all. Um. Anyways.” She shook her head again and smiled softly at McKenna. “Pretty sure he’ll be happy to have somebody who actually knows what they’re doing up there next time.”

McKenna smirked, and though Felicity narrowed her eyes, she refused to ask why. “We’ll see. Anyways, I gotta go find Carter. We need to post mortem.”

Felicity nodded as the other girl slipped away, but her attention was already flitting back towards the door, searching for Tommy. They had left things in such a strange place before they’d gone on stage. They’d resolved their fight, maybe, but she wasn’t really sure where that left them. Friends? Acquaintances?

Just as the whole experience of the play itself was swiftly becoming surreal and fog-shrouded, the strangeness of whatever had been brewing with Tommy was quickly fading into impossibility and doubt. It was half imagination, surely, and the other half being caught in the odd magic of the play. They’d just gotten too caught up in their characters and the romantic and sexual tension they’d needed to generate believably for the stage. Nevermind those practices together and readthroughs, the way they’d connected over making sense of their characters and their relationship with each other.

And the way they’d seemed to just… get each other, as Tommy and Felicity, the things they’d shared… it was all tucked into the bubble of the production, and now it would be over, too.

He’d go back to spending all his time with Oliver and Laurel and their friends, and she’d go back to her little corner in the library and geeking out with Barry and Caitlin and their gang. They’d say hi in the halls for the first couple of weeks, and then in less than a month they’d be on winter break, and when they came back…

Felicity shut her eyes, realizing her fingertips were tracing her lips.

Tommy Merlyn was a stranger, in the end, and there was no more excuse for them to spend time together, no script calling for them to kiss again, or even to speak.

“Don’t fall asleep, Smoak. I know we’re all tired, but I just got here.”

The shrill and incessant beeping of her alarm clock forced Katniss Everdeen from her peaceful slumber. In her sleep-induced haze, her hand reached for the offending item that was currently piercing her eardrums and fumbled around blindly until she found it. When she did, she slowly peeled one eye open, glanced at the blurry numbers on the clock, and immediately hit the snooze button. She settled comfortably into her previous position, draping her hand around her pillow. But just as she started slipping back into unconsciousness, a single thought blazed through her mind like a shooting star, and she bolted upright in a panic.

The Testimony

I promise I have no intention of teaching about every single daily challenge but its just been impossible to avoid doing it for these first two so hang with me.

Your testimony, other than worship to God is the single most powerful thing you have against the powers of darkness. Your story makes you powerful beyond measure, and here is why.

1. In Exodus 33:13 Moses connects knowing what God does to knowing who God is. When you meditate on the actions of God they introduce more about Him and help you understand HIs character. When you share your testimony and when others hear more about God’s actions, they are confronted with the goodness of His character, because as Psalm 119:68 says: He IS good AND he DOES good.

 2. Psalm 119:24 describes the testimony as a counselor. When you receive the counsel of your own testimony, it reminds you of your own faith. It builds you up and calls you to remember that you were there when God changed everything for you. Nothing in your future can intimidate you when you consider the fact that you’ve seen God move in your past.

3. Romans 2:11 says that God does not pick and choose whom He will save and Revelations 19:10 mentions that the testimony of Christ’s doing is prophetic in nature, meaning this: when other people see what God has accomplished for you it gives them courage. Whatever God has done for you, He is swift to do for others. Everyone who sees and hears your freedom through your testimony begin to see their own chains for what they truly are, which is nothing compared to the God who will move on your behalf. Your testimony is hope to others that need it.

So be encouraged, your story is irrefutable evidence that God is among us.

Be blessed
