okay but the only marichat i can genuinely see is the kind where it’s not 2am balcony visits but just two people trying to find out what the other is like (in a non-romantic way more like who the hell is this person and what makes them them)

like marinette saying an off hand comment about chat being looked over all the time in favour of ladybug saying things along the lines of “they’re a team ladybug cant fight without chat” and adrien just being touched that his awkward school friend sticks up for chat?? 

like he wants to thank her but knows if he turned around and told her in class it wouldnt quite work out so well. but he’s curious as to what she’s like since she rarely gets a full sentence out around him when he tries to have a conversation

when chat knocks on the bakery door one day whilst her parents are out she’s curious about her partner. (don’t try to tell me people would talk because I present you the evillustrator ep where he just stood outside her door talking and no one saw) so she invites him in for some croissants or something.

at first its just like “a cat told me that you talked highly of me today i just wanted to extend my purrsonal thanks, princess.” and she just brushes it off like it’s no big deal but she’s also curious about what her partner is like. when hes not trying to show off for her or impress “his lady”.

at first it starts off as casual visits to the bakery timed when her parents are gone but when that proves hard they progress to afternoon/afterschool balcony visits. the visits are just two friends hanging out, laughing about any mutual interests they have (chat confessed he liked anime and mari confessed she liked cheesy tv shows and they each watch the other’s suggestion to get to know each other better). 

their interactions start to ooze into their other personas. adrien casually referencing a tv show she had suggested to chat and she barely even notices. ladybug mentioning to chat that she agreed that sunsets were the best time of day, even though he had only told that to marinette as chat.

slowly things start to trickle in about each other and only then do they put the pieces together. cue suspicion of identities on both sides. their visits becoming flustering messes because “the coincidences are too similar this definitely might be their crush it might be adrien/ladybug” but also hesitant because what if theyre wrong?

it all comes out of the bag when marinette and adrien are working on a school project together (they were paired up by ms bustier) and marinette casually goes “chat can you pass me that book over there?” adrien complies, not noticing for one moment she used the wrong name. 

five minutes pass before both realise what they had done. adrien is freaking because he’s like “oh no i let the cat out of the bag” punning even in the face of disaster when tikki lets him off the hook and reveals mari after she becomes too flustered with the words to say

they then are red in the face and bursting with happiness when they go to school as boyfriend/girlfriend

Oh no I made a new OC. 🙈  
Have yourself an apprentice, Badgerclaw!

Name: Honeypaw
Clan: Shadowclan
Status: Apprentice
Appearance: A petit, pretty flame-point she-cat with large ears, blue eyes, and a small pink nose.
Personality:
-An enthusiastic goody-two-shoes

-Has a good mind for facts/trivia. Would totally be a bookworm. Total know-it-all

-Can be annoyingly optimistic

-A decent hunter, but has a tendency to freeze when faced with combat

-Every cat wonders why she didn’t choose to become a medicine cat apprentice instead. If asked she dodges the question

-Secretly very insecure about her ability to be a warrior, but very desperate to prove herself. Her worry occasionally sends her into a panic. Tries to compensate for her lack of physical ability with knowledge and trivia.

Relationship with Badgerclaw:


-She doesn’t seem at all affected by his grumpiness 

-Badgerclaw is such a shitty hunter that she secretly asks fellow apprentices for hunting tips. Is already a better hunter than Badgerclaw. 

-Best buddies. Badgerclaw will quietly sit and listen to her rattle off about clan history, prey behavior, etc for hours on end. (He may or may not just be spacing out though)

-Relationship is entirely platonic, but no cat seems to believe it

-Badgerclaw has a very difficult time finding a balance between irrationally over-protective, and dangerously hands-off during training

Rec Post: Natsume Yuujinchou

Okay guys i just…i love Natsume Yuujinchou/Natsume’s Book of Friends so much. SO MUCH. It has touched my heart SO DEEPLY and is now one of my top five anime, so i am making one of those overly long overenthusiastic rec posts with tons of gifs in an attempt to impart on you all why it is a thing you should watch.

Basic premise: A teenage boy, Natsume Takashi,  has the rare ability to see otherworldly beings (youkai), who range from violent and dangerous to relatively friendly, but are often very startling when they show up regardless. Natsume was orphaned at a young age and passed around among his relatives, who all considered him a liar and troublemaker because he claimed to see all these things they couldn’t. He often faced abuse and neglect from his guardians and bullying and alienation from his peers.

Natsume has at long last found a kind foster family to live with, but he’s having a very hard time adjusting to the idea that people care about him now and he struggles a lot with the trauma and scars his past has left him with. 

What’s more, he’s in inherited a strange book from his deceased grandmother, Natsume Reiko, who he discovers could also see youkai. She would often get in fights with youkai and win due to her strong spiritual power and cunning nature. After she won, she’d make the youkai sign their names in what she called her “book of friends” and bind them to her in servitude. Now Natsume has the power to control these youkai, which makes a lot of youkai want to kill him and steal the book from him.

Natsume decides he will give the youkai back their names and release them from their servitude. In the process, he learns a lot about his grandmother, himself and the youkai world in general.

His companion during these adventures is Madara, a poweful youkai who was sealed in a maneki-neko, or “lucky cat”, statue. Because of this, he takes the form of a very rotund cat most of the time, though his true and most powerful form is kinda wolf-like.

 However, he acts like a cat more than anything else, despite his protests to contrary. He can be seen eating a lot, lazing around, chasing grasshoppers and sunbathing. Natsume has therefore dubbed him “Nyanko-sensei”. Nyanko-sensei knew Natsume’s grandmother. He has a deal with Natsume that he’ll act as his bodyguard against violent youkai in exchange for getting whatever’s left of the book of friends when Natsume dies. He lives with Natsume as the family cat and the relationship between the two grows and deepens as the show goes on. 

Natsume Yuujinchou is a beautiful anime about healing from trauma, growing as a person and connecting with those around you. I’ve heard it described as “like a warm hug” and I can’t think of anything more accurate. I often feel like it helps me heal from my own wounds. The main character is a total sweetheart, most of the characters are lovely and the beauty of the world the show takes place in is astounding. There’s tension and conflict a plenty, as well as complexity, but the show is really mostly about growth and love. There’s absolutely no gross fanservice or tropey, shady bullshit to be found here. This anime is heartfelt, gentle and emotional in the best way. It starts a little slow and does keep up a very relaxed pace throughout, but I’m telling you, I have cried plenty and been moved deeply by it many times. 

The whole thing is available on Crunchyroll.

Now under the cut, some awesome gifs and pics demonstrating all the cool things you can expect from Natsume Yuujinchou:

Including: Beautiful imagery and animation:

“I’m a coward. Such a freaking coward!”

Dean heaves a deep sigh and rubs his temples in a weak attempt to order his thoughts. It feels like a goddamned roller coaster in there and he really doesn’t know what to do.

“It’s just … it should be easy, right?” he continues, shaking his head. “They’re just words. Granted, huge words. Words I never said before to another person outside of my family. But …”

He pauses, looking at the big golden eyes in front of him that study him expectantly.

“What do you think, man?” Dean asks. “Am I a coward?”

No reply, just an intense stare.

“Or am I crazy?” Dean suggests. “For talking to a frigging cat of all things!”

Mojo finally decides to blink … and stays quiet.

Stupid cat!

“I am crazy!” Dean groans, throwing his hands into the air. “Instead of facing my boyfriend and telling him that I love him, I’m talking to his cat who likes to chase flies and lick his butt all day. That doesn’t make any sense!”

Mojo tilts his head – and damn, he does look a bit like Castiel that way – and eyes Dean in that typical humans-are-quite-weird way. He did it the very first time Dean came over – the night after his first date with Castiel, him being all jittery and jumpy, wondering whether the ‘tea’ Castiel offered him at the front porch with a warm smile before inviting him in actually meant a hot beverage or something completely different, his nerves all over the place – and Mojo obviously thought him the weirdest person on the planet.

(By the way, the 'tea’ actually turned out to be tea. That … and the best first kiss ever!)

Since then Dean’s relationship with the cat is kinda reserved. Mojo mostly stays out of sight or at least far away, just staring at Dean as though he hopes that this odd human would finally disappear and never return. There is wariness and suspicion and Mojo only condescends to ignore all this when he’s in the mood for some proper petting.

“You don’t care about my problems, right?” Dean sighs. “I mean, you’re a cat, why should you? You probably think I’m dense for not having the nerve to tell my boyfriend – my beautiful, gorgeous amazing boyfriend – that I’m hopelessly in love with him. That the last few months had been the best of my life. That I’m, without any doubt, the luckiest guy alive.”

He shuts his eyes for a second. “He’s so awesome, you know? Everything I ever hoped for and at the same time so much more! I’m so crazy about him, you’ve got no idea.” He fidgets awkwardly. “But how do I tell him all that? I’m so awful at the feelings-crap and as soon as I look into his pretty eyes I’ll forget anything I wanted to say.”

Mojo dignifies Dean’s little meltdown with a big yawn and an I-couldn’t-care-less expression.

Dean, however, just lets it pass. “How do normal people do it? Just say it right into the person’s face?” He bites his bottom lip in frustration. “How?”

“There are some who talk about it with their boyfriend’s pet,” suddenly a very deep and very familiar voice interjects.

Dean leaps to his feet immediately and stares at Castiel with wide eyes. “Cas!”

Of course he shouldn’t be surprised by his boyfriend’s presence since this is Castiel’s place after all and he only left to run a small errand, even reassuring Dean that it “won’t take long”, but for some reason Dean totally missed how much time already passed.

Castiel, however, seems highly amused. “So that’s what you’re doing when I leave the house? Having deep and meaningful conversations with Mojo?”

The cat merely spares them a brief glance before starting to lick his paws and ignore them in a way only cats manage to do.

Dean smiles crookedly. “He’s actually not the best to talk to.”

Castiel takes a step closer and chuckles. “Don’t worry, I’m doing the same thing all the time.”

Dean lifts an eyebrow. “Really?”

“Yes.” Castiel cups Dean’s cheek, his fingers so warm that Dean instantly leans into the touch. “Just yesterday I told him how much I love my boyfriend.”

Dean’s heartbeat picks up its pace rather spectacularly and he can’t contain a beaming grin. “You do?”

Castiel hums in affirmation, his nose brushing Dean’s. “Very, very much.”

The kiss that follows is sweet and soft and it makes Dean’s skin tingle in the most pleasant way possible.

“I love you too,” Dean whispers before surging right back in.

And on the couch Mojo continues to groom his fur and probably wonders why humans are so annoyingly complicated.

don’t get me wrong, i love seeing those court of dreams + instagram edits, they’re GORGEOUS and often really clever, but like, i want to draw attention to the fact that there is 0 percent chance, realistically, that each and every one of them would have a perfectly balanced Aesthetic grid going on

The Court of Dreams + Instagram, For Realsies:

Rhys: assorted things he finds pretty (tending towards the abstract; probably thinks he’s A Photographer but isn’t) with needlessly overdramatic, sweeping, vague statements about feelings or love or life’s journey attached to each one. lots of pictures of Feyre with GUSHING PARAGRAPHS about how much he adores her.

Az: his profile just says “mor made me do this.” has posted exactly one picture and it’s of a cool cloud or something.

Cassian: WORKOUT SELFIES. hashtags about illyrianLYFE and The Grind. candids of Nesta looking annoyed captioned with 80 thirsty emojis. occasional low-tier memes well past their expiration date poached from some third-hand site like ifunny. comments on everything everyone else posts.

Mor: actually pretty aesthetic. posts The Most out of everyone. the OOTD, ~brunch and mimosas with the girls!~, killer selfies, Sephora Shopping Haul, etc kind of trendy poster. Also in this AU she has a cat and posts a shitton of pictures of the cat, and also Azriel with the cat.

Elain: Lots of flowers, some selfies, mushy quotes about positivity and friendship, but also that friend who cannot shut the fuck up about her relationship. “Nesta, I have to unfollow Elain,” Cassian says blearily over breakfast while scrolling through his phone. “My entire feed right now is pictures of her and Lucien kissing. She’s got song quotes under each one. I can’t do this.”

Lucien: Doesn’t have instagram, but spends all his time getting into fights about politics and his opinions about movies on twitter.

Nesta: Infrequent poster. mostly pics of places she travels to. takes some selfies of dramatic makeup looks she’s trying, and never smiles in any of them. there are occasional videos of Cassian being goofy, though, and MAYBE that’s her giggling in the background but she’d deny it.

Feyre: Actually a normal internet human. Posts her art, ~aesthetic~ photos of her studio, occasional pictures of her out with friends. There is the rare cute picture of rhys, captioned with something like “i guess I love this idiot” in hilarious contrast to his ramblings about her. (There are no selfies. Feyre’s not good at selfies. Mor has tried to teach her how to Work The Angles but Feyre feels too weird taking pictures of herself.)

Amren: I can’t believe people think Amren would have any social media at all. She’s like a combination of Rosa from B99 and Ron Swanson: “You people already know too much about me.”

WANNA ONE ❃ AS SHIT I HAVE SAID

Yoon Jisung - “I am not unlucky, I am just magically miserable.”

Ha Sungwoon - “If everyone was created equal why am I so short?”

Hwang Minhyun - “You know what’s hardcore? Sleeping early and perfect attendance.”

Ong Seongwoo - “I am the beautiful one in this relationship, you better respect me.”

Kim Jaehwan - “I’m sorry I called you a bitch when I was hungry.”

Kang Daniel - “I love you the most, but I love my cat a little more.”

Park Jihoon - “I just got harassed by a bee.”

Park Woojin -  “I believed in Santa for 10 years, but I can’t believe in myself for 10 seconds.”

Bae Jinyoung - “It’s such a beautiful day for you to shut the fuck up. Don’t ruin it.”

Lee Daehwi - “Pour some glitter over me as I stand in the sunlight so I will look like a fairy princess”

Lai Guan Lin - “Sorry for the mean, awful but completely accurate things I’ve said to you earlier.”

I saw a post recently that suggested that Ned/Cat in the books wasn’t as affectionate/as couple-y as they are in the show, and I just disagree so much, and have been thinking a lot lately about how ridiculously flowery some of the language is in the Ned/Cat scenes in the books. Like, we tread into straight up romance novel territory at times. 

“She could see the grief on his face, but even then he thought first of her.”

“Was this to be her punishment? Never to see his face again, nor to feel his arms around her?” 

“Ned kissed the tears from her eyes before they could fall.” (MY HEART)

“Catelyn lifted her face, and Ned kissed her. Her maimed fingers clutched against his back with a desperate strength, as if to hold him safe forever in the shelter of her arms.” 

“He wanted to drift off into a dreamless sleep in his own bed with his arms wrapped tight around his lady, Catelyn.” 

“The thought of Cat was as painful as a bed of nettles. He wondered where she was, what she was doing. He wondered if he would ever see her again.” 

And that’s not even getting into the ridiculously flowery romantic language that encompasses Catelyn’s grief: 

“I have lost my Ned, the rock my life was built on.” 

“Catelyn had not eaten today. Perhaps that had been unwise. SHe told herself that there had been no time, but the truth was that food had lost its savor in a world without Ned. When they took his head off, they killed me too.”

“Bones, Catelyn thought. This is not Ned, this is not the man I loved, the father of my children. His hands were clasped together over his chest, skeletal fingers curled about the hilt of some longsword, but they were not Ned’s hands, so strong and full of life. They had dressed the bones in Ned’s surcoat, the fine white velvet with the direwolf badge over the heart, but nothing remained of the warm flesh that had pillowed her head so many nights, the arms that had held her.“

“And after the war, at Winterfell, I had love enough for any woman, once i found the good sweet heart beneath Ned’s solemn face.” 

“It hurts so much, she thought. Our children, Ned, all our sweet babes. Rickon, Bran, Arya, Sansa, Robb… Robb… please, Ned, please, make it stop, make it stop hurting… The white tears and the red ones ran together until her face was torn and tattered, the face that Ned had loved. Catelyn Stark raised her hands and watched the blood run down her long fingers, over her wrists, beneath the sleeves of her gown. Slow red worms crawled along her arms and under her clothes. It tickles. That made her laugh until she screamed. “Mad,” someone said, “she’s lost her wits,” and someone else said, “Make an end,” and a hand grabbed her scalp just as she’d done with Jinglebell, and she thought, No, don’t, don’t cut my hair, Ned loves my hair “

Like this fucking romantic ass couple whose relationship is revealed slowly and painfully, peeled like an onion so we can see layers upon layers upon layers, getting some of the straight up most romantic lines in the series, leave me here to die in my shippy glory. 

Russian names: pet names

As in, names for loved ones, not for pets, although those are fun, too.

(I’ve been considering a post like this for a long time, and then I got an ask requesting it, so I decided to go ahead and pick up my drafts. Dear person who requested it, I’m very sorry, I accidentally clicked “send” before I took note of your URL, that’s why I’m not tagging you. Credits for prompting this are yours, anyway.)

Most Russian partners and spouses address and refer to each other by the diminutives or their first names, sometimes using a slightly different version than everyone else (Vitka or Vitenka, rather than just Vitya, Yurka or Yurochka rather than Yura), but generally, they use the same names for each other as their siblings and close friends use for them.

Also, Russians in general (especially Russian men, Georgi Popovich notwithstanding) are a little (okay, a lot) more reserved than people in a lot of other countries; ending every phone call with “I love you”, making sure there are always fresh flowers in the house and bringing each other breakfast in bed isn’t something that happens very often, not even in novels.. 

Therefore, not a lot of Russians make up pet names for each other, call each other something new and sweet every day or even explicitly say “I love you” at all. 

That said, pet names still do exist, and people do use them - sometimes sincerely, and sometimes jokingly or even in mocking.

Before I begin my three-page rant on Russian nicknames, I’d like to make sure we’re clear about three things.

First, my transliteration isn’t the only correct way to spell it. There’s often no right way to transliterate some words or letters, so if you see and like some other way to spell some word - go ahead and use that, it most possibly doesn’t matter. Just watch out for o/a and e/i in unstressed syllables (it’s YurOchka, VitEnka), because those, if spelled wrong, look like spelling mistakes rather than alternative transliterations.

Second, YMMV. Russia is huge. Dialects exist. People are different. There’s a good chance someone may use some words differently, and that’s okay.

Third, I hope everyone’s aware that it’s also okay to use any words you like in your fanfic, even if they only sound Russian, or don’t even sound Russian at all; it’s your text, you’re the one who’s creating the universe your characters live in; the Russia in your fanfic doesn’t have to be exactly the same as the Russia that exists in our world.

If, however, you want to stick to the real-life Russian pet names, this text is for you.

The first thing that’s important to remember when picking a Russian endearment is gender. A lot of Russian words aren’t gender-neutral, and using the wrong gender makes it hilarious if the person is secure in their gender or offensive, if they have gender-related issues. So please, make sure you pick a gender-neutral word or use the correct version of a gendered one. I marked all feminine words with an f, and all masculine with an m, and explicitly stated if the word is gender-neutral.

The word most frequently used in fanfic, “дорогой(m, dorogoy)/дорогая(f, dorogaya)” is, indeed, the equivalent for “darling”, but in real life it’s hardly ever used as an endearment. Instead, it’s more of a word for old married couples: “Dorogaya, you ruined my life, - You’re not exactly a gift yourself, dorogoy!”. It’s used ironically or jokingly much more often than as an actual way to address someone you love. It’s also the same word as “expensive”, so statements like “Moya dorogaya is very dorogaya, that’s the third silver necklace this week” aren’t unheard of.

Much more often used is “милый(m, miliy)/милая(f, milaya)”. It basically means the same - “dear/darling” - but sounds more gentle and intimate. Young women use that, along with lubimiy, on girly forums to refer to their boyfriends (”Last night miliy said that I…”).

I think the world is starting to forget that in a lot of places, marriage equality is a thing of the future. I can’t just go out and hold my girlfriend’s hand in the street, or kiss her when I want to, or even tell her she’s beautiful sometimes because she’s worried someone, so filled with rage at our very existence, will take out his anger and misogyny on us, two rather young women in love. 

I can’t register as a partner to stay in the country because I’m a woman, and of course a woman isn’t another woman’s partner, ignoring the fact we’ve been in an almost 9 month relationship, we have two cat sons together and rarely spend much time apart. 

We can’t be together, not normally, not in front of most people. I can’t leave my hand on her leg when we eat dinner with my grandparents, and even her coworkers, who know we’re together, say it’s “Just a phase.” 

Our love is not “just a phase”.

My soulmate just happened to be a woman. How does that effect anyone but us? We love each other, care for each other, support each other, fight and argue like any other couple. We cook dinner together, we recently made a quiche. We resignedly clean the apartment when it’s the weekend and struggle not to order take out when we’re tired. We share finances, live together. 

But we can’t get married. 

One of my girlfriend’s coworkers is married to a woman. But not in Poland she’s not. They went to England to get married, probably like we’ll have to. Poland doesn’t even recognise their marriage or relationship. We exist, but it’s like we’re not here. 

I love her.

She loves me.

And we still can’t get married.

In 2017.

Thank you, Chicken People

Thank you so much, all of you that have been interested in learning about chickens and how to give them a good life. Chickens are really incredible and have so long been considered disposable, stupid, and worthless beyond food, and nothing could be further than the truth. I have been lucky enough to be around birds my entire life, and have had companion parrots since I was 5 years old. I love my parrots, but it is clear that they are complex, emotional, and for the most part still very wild animals and only make good pets/companions for a small number of people. Chickens have been domesticated for thousands of years, and love living around people. My chickens have been the sweetest and most entertaining pets/companions I’ve had in my life, and I’m happy that so many people are interested in them! Chickens are often what people think they want in a pet bird but don’t realize it– intelligent, entertaining, personable, and some are very friendly. Some will sit in my lap and nap while I pet them like a cat, with no emotional baggage or social behavior that is complex beyond the understanding of the average owner (the way parrots are!). Chickens are just wonderful pets. That said, please don’t make a chicken into something it is not; only a few breeds are truly suitable as house pets, and most chickens are very social. Meaning: Most (not all but most) chickens are happiest outdoors with other chickens! As with all animals, careful research and suitable housing will result in a much happier relationship!

anonymous asked:

do you have any soft hl fic recs? like along the lines of your newest fic and sunshine grenadine and the strawberry milk fic. just soft loving hl ahhh

I looooove soft fics I wish there were more! So here are a few that sort of fit the bill! 

Thought That Song Was Sung- @100percentsassy: absolutely delightful famous/not famous AU where Harry was in 1D and is now out and in his forties, and he meets Louis (also in his forties!) on a internet dating site. It’s so so so so sweet and hot and they’re VERY soft and it’s so feel good and I always bawl at the end! I love gay love happening later in life, and second chance narratives, and it’s all about that. 

Saved Tonight- objectlesson: oops, so I wrote this one so you have have already read it! But I’ve been told it’s very soft, and @wankerville who is the confirmed queen of softness told me it’s HER go to feel good/safe fic, so that makes me want to include it because I love her. Anyway, Louis is a bitter retired television  writer and Harry is a huge fan of his cancelled show who happens to be dog sitting next door. Also a second chance narrative. 

Want You More than A- TheCellarDoor: outstandingly soft, gentle high school AU with nerdy harry. Louis is the sweetest most soft boyfriend ever, and theres so much humor and bumbling communication and they’re so YOUNG and it’s just lovely. 

Think How Much Pussy You’re Gonna Get- Loadedgunn: soft, sweet, hilarious, alarmingly reliable canon story about Harry adopting too many cats and Louis being so in love with him he doesn’t care. 

Lastly, @alivingfire has a collection of very sweet short fics she originally wrote on tumblr and they’re ALL very soft and loving. Most of them are canon, which is always my favorite

a few more, that have angst AS WELL as softness, but don’t begin with an established relationship. 

To the Ends of the Earth- @alienproof This is a canon fic that starts angsty but gets really soft! It takes place in the middle of the hiatus, and Harry is living in an isolated cabin in Idaho and Louis comes to stay with him and they’re not together, but were in the past. It’s slow and tender and aching, and something about them being in the middle of Idaho and so far away from everything creates this soft, delicate magic around them. 

wish I knew how to break this spell- eleadore: another cabin fic….maybe there’s something inherently soft about cabins??! Anyway, also cabin, also begins in angst, ends in tenderness. 

if It’s me you’re looking for- eleadore: an au where they’re exes and sort of like…long time best friends, with communication problems? It’s super super slow build and it starts with angst (louis thinks it’s unrequited) but when they finally get on the same page it’s so romantic and satisfying! 

Faking It -thecellardoor: childhood best friends/fake dating AU with lots and lots of build up and slow-burn, an some angst/miscommunication early on. Extremely sweet though, and they’re very very soft with each other and very in love. I think the childhood best friends slowly fading in love thing lends itself well to softness. 

But why wonder, why wonder? - @100percentsassy this is a Marcel/Louis fic and it’s SO WONDERFUL and funny and adorable, but early on Marcel suffers from a low of self doubt and anxiety, so there is some angst. BUT! When they finally do get together it’s wildly sweet and wonderful. 

enjoy!!!!

Just A Little Bit of Your Heart | Harry Styles

A/N: HI lovelies! It’s been a hot minute and I cannot contain my excitement on this piece that I’m currently writing! It’s probably one of my favorites that I’ve written on this blog (so far). But I decided to share this little teaser with you! I hope you like it!

Part 1

I never thought this day would come, but yet, who does and whoever wants it to? Giving my whole heart to someone again was the biggest leap I’ve ever taken, given my history with love. I didn’t think I was ever going to again, and honestly, I didn’t want to. My walls were built up so high that any man I crossed paths with just kept going, too exhausted to try and climb over it.

But not him.

Not Harry.

He smashed through that damn concrete wall with full force, leaving all of my doubts and insecurities shattered into thousands of tiny pieces. It wasn’t soon before he replaced the monotonous graveyard with a garden of beautiful flowers. Each of them slowing blooming as I fell deeper and harder. It was easy to maintain. No weeds ever sprouted, and not a single flower ever wilted. ‘Arguing’ just wasn’t a word in our dictionary. Every tiny spat we had was usually about petty things like what’s better: cats or dogs? Everyone thought our relationship was a little too perfect, but doesn’t everyone want a happily ever after? I certainly do.

I thought I had mine, walking side by side with the love of my life in a fully grown meadow of the most beautiful flowers. But that’s when I saw it. Out of all the vivid petals resides one dull rose that’s beginning to wilt. The dark red hue has disappeared and had been overtaken by a pale grey. When I look over to my left, I don’t find Harry with his fingers laced with mine like he usually would be. In fact, I don’t spot him in this meadow at all.

And all I begin to find is grey.

Thesis is stressful, but on the bright side, I managed to finally make a breakthrough story-wise with my OCs. Remember this gal?

Well, I’ve once again revamped my original..story..thing. Her name is Richie Dy (pronounced “dee”) and is Aza’s older sister (changing Aza’s last name too as a result). Richie’s of working age, and they live together without their parents (either they’re dead or separated, haven’t figured that out yet). Aza’s in high school, still going through the typical teenage struggles. The catch is, she can turn into a cat-sized dragon.

I’ve changed Aza’s personality as a result. She’s a lot more inquisitive, still a prankster, and since she’s only allowed to use her dragon powers in their home, she likes to stay in that form quite a lot, much to Richie’s annoyance. These are just some studies on their relationship dynamics I suppose. Sorry, still wondering if I should revamp or just modify Aza’s human design so I didn’t draw that yet. Her next most recent design was this
