Manspreading (Part 3)

Word Count: 9k

  “Don’t bring the dog into this. He’s young and he doesn’t need this kind of stuff pushed on him. He’ll grow up to have issues.” 

“Very funny, Tae. You’re a real funny guy. You know what else is funny? Your chances of sleeping in the same bed as me this month.”

Part 1, Part 2, Part 4

It wasn’t at all unusual for you to wake up smothered by the sixty-two kilograms of pure heat and clinginess that was Kim Taehyung. What was unusual however was how inappropriately naked the both of you were at the moment, and the suspiciously hard thing pressing against your side.

You’ve been awake for a good while now having an internal breakdown and devising increasingly elaborate plans to get yourself out of Taehyung’s loving death-grip. You wonder if you could slip out of his arms for a quick reprieve in the shower before you have to really face him, because right now you couldn’t think very clearly when he was so close to you and his addicting scent was bombarding your brain. He was always a heavy sleeper, and you figured you had a fairly good chance of slipping away without waking him up. When your eyes opened up and met his entirely too awake ones, you nearly jumped out of your skin.

Awesome resource for artists who need help finding their ‘voice’ for the FFXV boys

I recently saw this post going around by @promptae about the FFXV fandom reducing the main 4 boys to very basic and degrading stereotypes. It kind of upset me, because A) I worried that I was doing this to them, too and B) I think they bring up a good point and I would hope other fan artists would work hard to avoid portraying the boys in this way. 

So, I’m working on a fic right now and I needed some inspiration for some of Gladio’s lines, and what’s better for inspiration than canon dialogue? I didn’t, however, want to run around in my own game waiting for banter or scroll endlessly through tumblr looking for gif sets or videos, so I headed over to youtube. 

What I ended up finding was a huge playlist of over 200 banters compiled by YouTube user Savannah Grace NC. This was a HUGE help to me, being able to just sit and listen to banter after banter of the boys in various situations, happy, sad, angry, excited, etc, and I just thought I’d share for anyone else struggling to balance four very distinct personalities and ways of speaking. 

We choose to portray characters out of character for many reasons–for AUs, because we’re looking for a certain reaction out of a character, because we introduced a new character or OC into the mix, because we’re writing a crack fic–and I’m not saying it’s the end of the world if you choose to do this. But, personally I think trying to write/draw/RP a character as in character as possible is a lot of fun, and can be very rewarding for both the artists and other fans reading/observing the art. 

Happy writing/drawing/RPing/head-canon-constructing!!!

More of a fuck managers story but I’m gonna tell it anyway cause I’m raging.
Right so, I work at a very popular fast food chain, one that started in America but I work in the UK. So our menu is slightly different, and not all of our stores are 24 hours, but the one I work at is.
I’m a night shift worker, usually working 10pm-6am, which is a ball ache but due to anxiety I find it very hard to work when it’s extremely busy.
It was about 3am, on a Saturday, and I was serving up front. I am a moderately attractive 18 year old girl, so I was expecting a few drunk people and a few comments from customers as it is usually on these kind of shifts. I can deal with that though.
A small 4 person party came through, they obviously just came from the town centre and they were vaguely drunk. These men made a few comments about me being ‘too pretty to work here’, and as usual in these situations I just push it to the back of my mind and it doesn’t bother me.
What I didn’t know was that my manager was there the entire time. So I took thier order, got their drinks and asked them to take a seat whilst I collect their food. My manager then comes to me, let’s call him H, and says “you know, they had a point about you.”
I frown and ask “what do you mean?”
“You’re way too hot to be working here…”
Now, I’m autistic and I find it really hard to deal with people hitting on me. So I just grabbed the rest of my order and delivered it to them.
After a few minutes a guy from that small party asked H for some sauce. H then asked me to grab some. Which just so happened to be on a low shelf in front of him. Since he’s my manager I have to do what he says so I got the sauce, noticing him ogling my ass during. I passed the man his sauce and carried on cleaning. Since its a night shift we have to do a lot of that.
H then came up to me and asked if I had a boyfriend. I said yes, as I have been in a long term relationship since I started there. He then asked why I was with him, and if I’d be willing to cheat.
At this point I was pissed off. I told him I’d never cheat and that I was happy, then made an excuse to get stock so I could calm down.
I wouldn’t be so annoyed, if when I reported it, something would’ve been done. But I’ve been ignored by my business manager and i have been losing hours as I am refusing to work with him. This has been going on for A MONTH. I’m currently looking for other jobs.

Okay guys so I’m like, 85% sure Pyrrha is coming back from the dead at some point.

Let’s look at the facts.

1. RT is known for their totally obvious plot twists.

Blake being a cat, Pyrrha dying, etc.. All these things were foreshadowed so hard that it wasn’t even remotely a shock when they happened. So it’s not hard to imagine that, when something else is being seemingly foreshadowed, they are going for that. Which leads me too…

2. “I’ll always be here for you”

You literally cannot foreshadow Pyrrha coming back to life more blatantly than that.

3. Pyrrha’s voice actor is still voicing new lines.

I don’t know exactly how contracts work with this kind of thing, but the fact that she is still voicing things this season means they may want to do more with her voice later after this episode.

4. Jaune’s relationship with Pyrrha is still being stressed hard.

This is very circumstantial, since it could be building up to a lot of things, but a moment where she comes back to life is one of the major possibilities, especially when combined with all this other evidence.

5. The dream sequences.

Ominous dream sequences like these exist for a reason. What’s weird is how much these sound like they are not from Ruby’s pov, but from Pyrrha’s. A lot of “Jaune”’s, not to mention the “do you believe in destiny”. It’s possible Ruby heard it on the way up, but I have my doubts. They wouldn’t be pulling this kind of Chekhov Dream sequence without a payoff. Once gain, circumstantial, but it implies they are planning on doing something more with Pyrrha.

Bats and Barbie Heads - snowbaz

ok honestly this was kind of a hard one rip me. carry on countdown: christmas shopping! and already i must dive into a new fic. what day are we even on. have entered the twilight zone yet.


No warnings.

If you can’t Christmas shop for your boyfriend, Christmas shop with your boyfriend.

A list of gift ideas for Tyrannus Basilton Grimm-Pitch III (by Simon Snow):

1. A shorter fucking name.

2. Sheet music to that one song we both fell in love with in that one movie.

3. Clothes that I can steal.

4. The Entire Works of Edgar Allen Poe (aka, if Baz’s soul was a book).

5. Fairy lights because he needs to lighten the fuck up.

6. Better morning attitude.

Oh boy.


A list of Christmas gift ideas for Simon (by Baz):

1. I don’t know.

2. A pair of jeans that isn’t ripped.

3. Not a dog. Not allowed.

4. A bucket of sour cherry scones (not sure what he’d be more stoked with: the scones, or the bucket).

5. A t-shirt with my face on it.

6. I don’t know.



“All right, Simon,” I confess as we sit in the car, gearing up to go to the shopping centre. “I give up, I’m shit at gifts. What do I get you for Christmas?”

Simon rolls his head on the seat and gives me a degrading smile. “How about boyfriend who actually has some idea of what to get me?” He teases. I make a face and try to slap his hand. “I’m kidding! I’m kidding.”

“You’re a dick, you know.”

“I know. I take it back though - it would be hypocritical of me to dump you over getting a crap Christmas present.”

“You’re stuck too?”

“Let’s just go shopping.”


So, to make all fair, we end up in a shopping centre, with Simon sitting in a trolley from who-knows-where, and myself pushing him around the toy stores as we tease each other on what crappy gifts we’ll buy each other. So far, he’s threatened to buy me and army  of life-size (surely demonic) Barbie doll heads to place strategically around the flat, and I’m dead serious about buying him seven variations of the same shirt, so he can stain them on separate days of the week. So far, we haven’t actually bought anything.

“I’m telling you, I’m easy to buy for!” Simon insists. I give him an offended, confused look. ‘How so?’ “I don’t own anything! You could literally buy me a cookbook and I’d be chuffed.”

“Would you cook, though?” I point out.

His voice lowers as he leans up to my ear. “Only for you. I don’t mind testing my cooking on you.”

“How sweet. You don’t mind poisoning me.” (I kiss him anyway.)

It’s when we pass yet another children’s toy shop (that we obviously swerve into) that Simon lands on the 'perfect’ gift idea. It is also, incidentally, the most risky task we endure today.

I’m holding the trolley still as my ever-intuitive boyfriend stands in it’s basket, reaching for a top-shelf toy that we really should have asked a shop assistant to fetch. Alas, I’m doubling as the look-out on this mission. We’re probably scaring children off with our dastardly teenage antics, but as much as I acknowledge that that could be the case, I really do not care.

“Got it!” Simon yelps as he sits back down again, embraced in possibly the largest (cutest) soft-toy-bat I have ever seen. I try desperately to hide my smile.

“What is that?” I chuckle.

“A bat. Duh. You’re a vampire, you need a bat.”

And then, in a lower, giddy voice, I lean in and whisper: “You are a fucking wanker, you know that?”

He mirrors me, making fun of my face before he kisses my lips. “You get to name it. On Christmas. No sooner, no later.”

With a shake of my head and a theatrical groan, I sigh. “Oh you are definitely getting Barbie heads now.”

My Drama Year!

It had been some time since I had wifi, so I ventured to the library to download K-Dramas for entertainment purposes. This is My Year in K-Dramas. The last two are recent and I have watched them with wifi because I am in a better place. Yay!!

     1. Oh My Venus

      This drama started out being really sad to me, then it became rather weird, but then I thought it was cute. It is one of those dramas that I would definitely say I enjoyed. Without wifi and cable, it was also hard to watch a second or third time. By the third time, I just went through my favorite episodes/moments. Would still recommend! 4.5 STARS!


           2. Cheese in the Trap 

                Now this one I was actually kind of bored with until about the fifth episode. Sorry, but true. I had a hard time understanding why it was popular. Of course, though, I did enjoy watching it after getting into it. After some time, it had me hooked and trying to figure things out as it went and the male lead had me all confused and stuff! Kekeke Would I recommend? Yes. 4 STARS!

            3. Liar Game

                This one I stumbled upon by chance. I looked it up on Google and decided the synopsis made the show seem very intriguing. So I downloaded it and enjoyed every second of this mystery thriller!! From beginning to end I was hooked, like a fish on a line!! I could not get enough of the show and even checked to see if there was another season. I still need another one. TOTALLY DAEBAK!!! 5 STARS


            4. Descendants of the Sun

                 THIS ONE!! Yes, this one. This drama I kept in my files for a long time, even after I moved TWICE(!!!!). I love this drama from beginning to end and may have watched it about ten times… Without skipping episodes. I love it so much, I had the poster as my phone’s background and had ringtones. I am not ashamed!! Song-Song couple is love, dude!! This one breaks the record. WAY PAST 5 STARS!!!


             5. W: Two Worlds

                  Now tell me why Lee Jong Suk said he wants to play a more masculine type of character when he did such a cool, manly job playing as his character Kang Chul?! He is the definition of perfection and I love him so much. I started feeling rather odd when I wanted him to catch me in a bathroom. Like, I volunteer to be scared like that!! All semi-joking aside, the drama is freaking awesome and the story line was well thought out. I would like to meet the writer and get some tips. 5 STARS!!!

                 So many favorite scenes, so much bromance. Is it bad of me to say I loved this drama from beginning to end, too? I hope not. Although, for some reason, I wasn’t too into the beginning scene of the first episode. I shrug when I think about it because I have no idea why I’m not pleased with it. Gong Yoo did amazing acting out the battle and the movements were great and everything, but eh. ANYWAY! This drama had me swooning over anything and everything and even made me feel lonely af. I super love love it, though and totally watched it again and again!! Another one that broke the scale!!


            7. Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo

                 I just recently finished this one, so fresh out of the mind reaction. Here goes. NAM JOO HYUK, STOP STEALING MY HEART!!!!!! The story was great and the acting was even greater!! I love that it’s not the typical thin boy loves thin girl. Noooope, nope, nope. I am so in love with the story, I may go watch it again. With each episode, I had to make sure I was breathing because Nam Joo Hyuk kept me from breathing correctly. The love scenes were so cute and well thought out and that’s what really had me feeling like a high school teenager again. Oh, those feelings of blissful love. Sigh. I would definitely recommend this drama that peoples ears would fall off. I’m so in love with it. ANOTHER SCALE BREAKER!!!!!

    Thank you so much for reading!! (If you did) I know it was super long and not well typed, but I was afraid of mentioning any spoilers. Please keep in mind that I really did enjoy each and every one of these dramas. No harm, no foul.

    Got a drama you want to recommend I watch and review? Leave me a comment/message! Thank you!! Heartu!

    The only difference I’ve seen so far. I mean I know it’s only been a few weeks but I guess I was expecting a bit more. I’ve been going hard at least 4 times a week at CF and occasionally I’ll go to planet to do some cardio. My brother thought I could get below 200 lbs by today, February 1st, but I keep fluctuating between 210 and 205.

    In other news, the guy I went on the date with the other day and I have gone out a few more times. He’s kind of amazing! I’m trying super hard to keep a level head about it all. I have a tendency to let my emotions get the best of me. So yea, that’s life lately


    You have been protecting me since you were a kid. Sometimes I think, you got so good at it, you decided to become a cop and protect everyone.
    Oh, that’s a cool thought but I became a cop because of Die Hard.

    anonymous asked:

    I dunno if this has been asked but, fave Anti moment? (plus a gif of that, maybe :P)


    That’s kind of hard because I have so many favorite moments…

    But I think one of my all-time favorites would have be in FNAF SL #4 where Jack is with Baby in the scooping room (???) and it cuts to this:

    And the fact that Jack says “There’s haunting sounds” literally right after just made me lose my mind when he first uploaded it

    THAT OR in #3 you hear Anti giggle and say “Fuck”. That was pretty damn great

    this is so cuteee @zanzaalk
    i will be doing hip hop unit for this one :) maybe later i’ll do a carry on and finish all three units!

    A/N:  Hey, love.  I realize that this is a little bit different than what you requested.  I just had a hard time imagining Dean making fun of a woman over weight.  I flipped through a few episodes and couldn’t find any times he had.  So I thought about my High School experiences.  Which, being 8 years, gave me a different perspective.  People do mean, crappy things.  I got asked out as joke. A lot.  I don’t know why.  But the worst part of was that I somehow internalized that voice, and now at 26 I still worry that after 4 years of marriage, my husband is still with me as a joke.  So, I kind of decided that’s really the only thing I know how to write about and I hope that’s okay.

    High school ends and words fade, all the years, all the fake prom invitations and jokes in the girl’s locker room.  The people that made you cry in the bathroom become faceless archetypes’ you can’t quite name after ten years.  

    What doesn’t fade, what really sticks with you, are the lessons that you learn about yourself and the ways you learn to treat yourself.  What they did to you was terrible.  But the things to learned to think and say about yourself are worse.  How do you stop a bully that lives in your own head?

    You sat at the bar, nursing your drink and trying to forget the day you’d just had.  Meeting after meeting.  Dealing with supervisors that didn’t know the software as well as you. You’d thought by now your dream job would be more dream, less nightmare.  All you wanted was a drink or two and some peace.

    “Y/N?  Y/N L/N?”  


    You inhaled your drink in shock, coughing and sputtering when you finally turned.  But you already knew who it was.  Ten years couldn’t make you forget him.  

    “Dean Winchester,” you said when you finally caught your breath.  It all came back crystal clear.  You remembered the color of your high tops and the smell of his stupid leather jacket.

    30 Days of Timeless

     Days of Timeless, Day 4 - Favourite Ship: Lucy/Wyatt

    I have always been a sucker for the friends-first/soulmates kind of relationship, so this is why I fell for them so hard, and on the spot. I will not list all the reasons for shipping them so many of you have already eloquently discussed; I will just add two which make me drawn to this pairing as I have not been to any other for a while.

    1. Connection. They are very much aware of each other all the time (emotionally and physically), and very sensitive to even the tiniest mood shifts. If there is a problem, the other one will soon address it one way or another. It may be protecting the other physically or discussing past traumas; whatever it is, they are always willing to offer a shoulder to cry on.

    2. Tenderness. There is a lot of tenderness between them, and it starts very soon. Add to it respect, trust and attraction, and it does not get any better than this.

    A Fairytale Beginning (3/?)

    Welcome to the weekend, guys. We made it. The last few days have been really hard for many of us, myself included, and in my weariness, it took me longer than it otherwise should have to finish/edit Chapter 3. But here it finally is. I hope it can provide a little escape to those of you, like me, who are kind of looking for one right now. I look forward, as always, to hearing what you all think and to being able to focus on Chapter 4 (which will include some scenes I’ve been itching to write).

    Also, an incredibly heartfelt thanks, again, to whichever of you lovely souls nominated me and my fics for seven ten (!!!) CS FanFic Awards. Your support has been outstanding, and I truly don’t deserve you. Finding out about the nominations was a bright spot for me on an otherwise dark day. Thanks for making a girl feel appreciated. XOXO

    Emma gasps as the man accompanying Henry walks boldly toward her, stepping into the beams of headlights as he crosses into the right lane of W. 40th Street.  She turns her head to see the black sedan barreling toward him, the screech of brakes cutting through the air as it swerves and skids. The man freezes as he realizes the danger, leaping just before the car reaches him, crashing sideways onto the hood, and tumbling over the passenger side.  He lands face-down on the concrete just as the vehicle finally manages to come to a halt.

    “Oh my god.”  She checks for more oncoming traffic before running to his side and crouching.  “Are you okay?”

    He groans, the mesmerizing grin he was giving her moments before now replaced with a look of contorted agony.  His shoulders shift as he gingerly pulls in his splayed arms and tries to push himself up with his right hand.  The motion causes him to wince, and only then does she realize that he’s wearing a hook over the end of his left arm.  An honest-to-god hook.  Like a pirate.
