and its about these 2 girls which eventually turn to 5
who want to start working out and going to the gym
so theres Sakura Hibiki the blonde girl and my personal favorite whos basically just trying to lose weight cause she eats like Goku
and Akemi Souryuuin the Dark Black Haired girl who is OBSESSED with Fitness and has a muscle fetish
And they get a BEAST OF A Personal Trainer named Machio

And the Manga goes in detail explaining Exercises.
Now I’m a Personal Trainer myself. I’ve been Certified the last 7 years and graduated college last year
PS if you wanna hire me for online coaching just email me at email@example.com ;)
so I HONESTLY am Impressed with the facts they are spewing out. and THE MANGA IS F*CKIN FUNNY AS HELL! Because sometimes its slice of life fun.
Like a 29 year old teacher who loves to cosplay started working out so she could cosplay better
and then it can turn into an ACTION BADASS SERIES just because Hibiki has Natural Gifts
And everyones facial expressions will change to match the mood
And its HILARIOUS, Its Fun, and just has so many things I appreciate as a Personal Trainer myself I LOVE THIS MANGA AND REAL TALK. Itss giving me 10x the Motivation to do better at fitness than OPM and yes even DBZ did back in the day
I am very thankful CHB: Confidential is coming because last night @nerdyadventures and I were talking about this. Camp’s schedule that is part of the Ultimate Guide book.
Since most of the quest are happening during the summer, we don’t really know how camps go on during the rest of the summer, we got a few glimpses during The Lighting Thief and there are some mentions from time to time but here is the full schedule and I just want to say some things:
THEY ACTUALLY HAVE TO DO LAUNDRY, I HAVE NEVER ACTUALLY THOUGHT ABOUT THIS, but it totally makes sense, they are at camp for months and they have a fixed schedule to do laundry. I’m sure every cabin has a different one but like WHERE DO THEY DO THE LAUNDRy? Do they have a special place to dry everything or you are going to walk and see your other campers clothes hanging while being dry? THIS WOULD SUCK AND MAKE YOU THE TARGET OF SO MANY PRANKS AND REVENGE
VOLLEYBALL. THEY PLAY VOLLEYBALL AS A SPORT. CAN YOU IMAGINE THIS, PERCY PROBABLY HAS TO JOIN CABINS BECAUSE HE IS ALONE BUT THIS CAN BE BRUTAL AND ALL THE POSSIBILITIES.
Letters to home is probably the campers having free time because some of them might not want to write letters to their place or don’t have anyone to send.
WRESTLING. they have wrestling and omg, little Percy being beaten over and over and over and then not so little Percy being able to win matches.
WOOD CHOPPING. I AM SORRY THIS IS HILARIOUS BUT I GUESS IT MAKES SENSE BECAUSE THEY HAVE A CAMPFIRE EVERY NIGHT
You bet your ass Percy and Annabeth both have strawberry picking at the same time.
STORE CHECKS. I KEEP FORGETTING THEY HAVE A STORE. How do they even pay for it!? Like WHERE DO THEY GET THE MONEY? Do they have to do inventories, is the Hermes cabin even allowed to do inventories?
WHY THE FUCK THEY HAVE SO MUCH PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AFTER DINNER? WHY DO THEY THINK IT WAS A GOOD IDEA? THEY ARE GONNA THROW UP
If a cabin is in charge of an activity, how do they work around that plus having their own schedule? Do cabin counselors have a different one since they are probably in charge of the activities?
Does cabin leaders go and negotiate their schedules to Chiron? “Look I don’t mind teaching swordfight 3 hours non-stop, but you gotta take me out of firework making”
WHAT DOES LUNCH PREPARATION MEANS? THE FOOD IS SUPPOSED TO BE MAGIC
Can May 2 come already and have the book released because I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS
Hi, I was wondering if you are taking requests? If not, then please ignore this, or sit on it for a while and decide. Tom did not build her up from nothing; he broke down the walls around what she didn't want to acknowledge. The book that housed a fraction of soul looked into this lonely, angry child and for just a moment saw a shadow of himself. Or basically: What if, Ginny was sorted into Slytherin?
Hm. So you seem to be asking two different questions here, and you don’t seem to know that they’re different. They’re both interesting stories probably, but I think what I’d like to talk to you about here is that nonequivalence.
You’ve asked for a dark!Ginny, one who secretly hates, who secretly relishes in pain or dismissal, one with a hidden superiority complex and a violence in her that’s cruel enough to match a young, arrogant Tom Riddle. The youngest of seven, forgotten and left behind, belittled, bitter, and the orphaned boy who orphaned so many more in his time.
It’s not quite my type of story, that–my Ginny is not a kind beast, but she is not a cruel one either–but it could certainly be a story.
Or basically: What if, Ginny was sorted into Slytherin?
This is not the same question. Did you know that?
Slytherin, despite everything, does not mean evil. It certainly doesn’t mean that on my blog, but even in canon– this is where you find Regulus Black, who died to stop old Tom. This is where you find Draco Malfoy, who was an ignorant, whiny, and self-important child, but hardly an evil one. This is where you find Andromeda Tonks, who loved so hard and so fierce and so well that she ran from superiority, wealth, and family to marry into a Mudblood house that was so much warmer than her childhood home ever had been.
And Slytherin!Ginny is a story that would fascinate me. The traits of Slytherin– ambition, cunning, adaptability, selfishness, and possessive love– these sit well on the youngest Weasley. She falls in love with Harry day one and never gives up on it. She transforms herself to step out from waiting in the eaves for him and lives for her own self, and it’s that bright creation of her daring self that wins him in the end. She goes after things with a single-mindedness that delivers– in love, in Quidditch, in kissing boys and defending Hogwarts until the end. She breaks rules. She loves hard. She doesn’t give up. She belongs in Gryffindor, sure– bravery is a watchword; her red hair is a war banner– but she would not be out of place in Slytherin.
And what a story that would be? The silence in the Great Hall when the name “Weasley” got followed by “SLYTHERIN.” Mrs. Weasley’s face when owls flap through the Burrow’s windows, carrying Percy’s concerned note and Ron’s dubious scrawl and Hermione’s anxious ‘Dear Mrs. and Mr. Weasley, I’d thought you’d like to be informed…’ (Fred and George of course just laughed and laughed and laughed into the silence and fell off their bench at the Gryffindor table and got bruises on their bums.) The way the Weasley parents would stress and wonder and pace and ask what did we do wrong– but in the end, the warm Weasley Christmas sweater that would arrive in the mail at the Slytherin table, a G knitted into the front, all brilliant in silver and green.
But the worries Ginny would have that first year, as the diary ate her from the inside, as it did cruel things with her hands–she’d have the same fears that are written up there in that ask as certainties: that being Slytherin meant she was secretly wrong. That her loneliness and her anger, her ambition and all her little selfishnesses meant she walked in the same skin as Tom, the ghost-boy who was using her hands to strangle chickens and write threats and hang cats by their tails and let out monsters so they could murder schoolchildren for the sake of their blood. She would worry she was like him and she would be wrong.
But this is what I would want out of that story– that growth, that realization, that reclaiming. You can be lonely without lashing out. You can be angry without being cruel. You can be ambitious without stepping on other people to get there. Ginny is good– a Ginny with green on her herms is still good. She is sarcastic and a bit dark in her humor, casts a mean Bat Bogey and is jealous about Cho and fiercely defensive of Luna– this is true in a lion’s House or a snake’s.
I want Fred and George playing Exploding Snap with her and teasing her for not cheering for them in Quidditch matches. I want her to find Millicent’s temper as hilarious as she finds Luna’s oddities, and to threaten a hex on anybody who calls Millicent fatty just as quick as she threatens the ones who call Luna loony. I want Harry to conscript her to help him spy on Draco and her to take to espionage like a duck to water– because you’re a Slytherin, he says, and she laughs and says, no, because I’m a nosy little sister and always have been.
When Ginny stays her sixth year, during the Carrows’ reign and Voldemort’s months of power, I’d want her to spit cruel words at Death Eaters and to hide her wand up her sleeve, and to stand between children and their abusers. I’d want her to marshal an army in the Room of Requirement, with Luna and Neville and every other scared, willing soul. This was her home. These were her people, her family, the things she was willing to fight for.
When they told her–their firebrand, their war banner–that she ought to have been in Gryffindor, I hope she laughed, I hope she fumed, I hope she proved them wrong. She was here for her friends, the way Regulus betrayed Voldemort for Kreacher, the way Narcissa lied to save Draco, the way Snape spent his adult life atoning for Lily, the way Andromeda left everything behind for Ted Tonks.
I would want Ginny to wear green proud by the end of it. I’d want her to know the evil was in Tom’s shadow, not in her, not in the color they both wore. I’d want Hermione to look up histories for her of Slytherins who saved children and fought good wars and taught and loved and built things meant to last– because ambition is about going after what you want. What in that is evil? Selfishness is about understanding that you yourself have value. What in that is evil? Cunning is about creativity, quick-thinking, rolling with the punches and paying attention–what in that is evil?
Do you know the sort of evil you can do in the name of fairness? Do you know the sort of damage you can do with bravery, with not knowing how to back down, not knowing how sometimes there is a need to give, to adapt? Do you know how you can cut with cleverness, what sort of scornful superiority can live in those high towers?
These are stories about choice. You choose your House. You choose how to live your House. Be brave, be cunning, be fair, be curious– all of those have their dark wizards. I refuse to believe otherwise.

This list is a mix of recently posted or updated works both WIPs and complete; some from well-known authors, some from slightly less well-known ones.
Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad by @vadianna E - 15,400 - updated 2/14/17 This is a richly-detailed canonverse story; Ben travels the galaxy with his uncle at the behest of the Senate; they arrive on Tatooine where Ben meets Hux, CO of what Ben thinks at first is some sort of planetary militia. Ben expects Hux to be impressed and pleased to meet him - naturally Hux disobliges and gives Ben a quick and dirty lesson on Outer Rim realities. THEN Ben finds out who his grandfather really was.
Here At The End of All Things by sarencen, @ad-aphelion T - 1,000 Inspired by a beautiful artwork from littleststarfighter. Short and bittersweet. This author has a gift for imbuing a relatively small number of words with great emotional power. Prepare for feels.
Blue Fires by @claricechiarasorcha E - 5,100 Kind of a follow-up to My Skin is Theirs (the Cadet Hux pictures fic) - it starts as some delightful uniform kink, Kylo having decided that the appearance of ‘Lt. Naberrie’ might be a fitting gift to Hux. It then makes an even more delightful detour into lingerie, followed by some unexpected and unanticipated admissions and…feelings.
The Deck 12 Recreational Lounge by gundamoocow, @agent-nemesis E - 4,200 A ‘missed connections’ personals ad fic from a kyluxhardkinks prompt; extremely porny and very funny. Escalating levels of exhibitionism, humiliation, and a pilot who doesn’t realize until it’s too late just who that hot redhead he’s hoping to hook up with is - not to mention his black-haired sex parter.
Do You Remember by @gefionne E - 9,300 A bracing trip into Classic Kylux territory. Hux put an end to their brief affair of convenience (at least that’s what he thought of it as) weeks ago. But Ren can’t forget about it, and is determined to make Hux admit there might have been something more - and that it should resume. Perfectly detailed settings, moods, and characterization.
Fanboy by @helvel E - 12,500 - updated 11/13/16 The TFA we know is a self-insert fan fic being written by Hux and Kylo, two Star Wars fanboys extraordinaire who are also co-workers at a local (kind of janky) Star Wars theme park. They spend most of their time working on their massive collaborative fic (Kylo does the artwork, too) and having sex. But that’s not a relationship, Hux thinks, horrified at the very idea once it occurs to him.
Oh, Is It Love? by substance black, @42dicks T - 14,400 - updated 2/10/2017 Set in the 1970s. Hux is a counselor-in-training at the summer camp Ben is forced to attend against his will (Han: “He’s sure hiding in his room! When’s the last time he even got outside? It’s not healthy!”). Ben is awkward and angry, defiant and almost immediately unpopular with the other kids. Hux is stiff standoffish; the other counselors and campers more or less respect him, but he’s not close to any of them. How will this odd couple get together?
Extreme Prejudice by florescentgrey, @yeats-infection M - 5,300 Apocalypse Now AU. Hux is called in to get into the jungle lair of renegade Col. Snoke; there he also finds stoned-out-of-his-mind photojournalist Ben. This is a meditation on what war does to the people who fight it, especially the ones who find that it is the thing they are best at doing. Whether you’ve seen the film or not, the atmosphere of it is very well invoked here, and is a great lens for viewing the familiar TFA characters from a different, but similar, angle.
Into the Garbage Chute by for_autumn_i_am, @longstoryshortikilledhim E - 15,600 A Techienician Modern AU; they are vendors at a convention who meet first in line and then discover that their tables are next to one another. Techie is the wild and experienced one, Matt the eager first-timer. As with most Techienician fics, you can hardly believe that they will be able to overcome their various issues and figure out that they can and probably should get together.
Vertigo by Verbyna, @soundslikepenance T - 2,900 - updated 1/28/17 This Hollywood AU reads like something by Joan Didion. Hux is finally directing; the script is his baby. Ren is the star. It’s not easy for Hux, though. (“But mostly, it’s Ren. Mostly, it’s telling Ren’s body and face what to do on a daily basis, then fielding calls from Snoke all night about his precious, untouchable protege. The height of Hux’s career is just a stepping stone for Ren, who only wants to fuck Hux to pass the time until he moves on to bigger things.”). He’s using his own memories and feelings as coins given to Ren to fuel his acting and perhaps keep him from getting completely unmanageable. And now they’re over budget.
The Roof of the Nightby @kyluxtrashcompactor E - 10,200 - updated 2/25/17 This picks up where All the Way to Your Door left off; this time, the focus is on Ben. There are hints at many terrible things from his past, and he has severe PTSD and other issues to deal with. The author has a remarkable insight into the thought processes and behavior patterns of a person struggling with these problems, and the writing is compassionate and incisive.
Swipe Right for Slow Burn Regret by @jinxedambitions E - 20,500 - updated 2/26/17 Modern AU where Hux is a workaholic high school science teacher whose friend Coach Phasma signs him up for Tinder, because the Great Drought needs to end. He mistakenly matches up with Kylo, a tattoo artist, and several expertly written, hilariously awful sexual encounters follow.
Bubblegum by @firstordershitposting E - 12,600 - updated 2/19/17 Somehow I missed the amazing prequel of this, Cherry, until now. Kylo’s porn career as Lord Ten Inches progresses on, as does his romance (full of fetishy cosplay) with former virgin twink and PhD Hux, who invites Kylo to meet his parents over the Christmas holiday. One suitcase of dildoes might not be enough, and Hux discovers that his parents use Kylo’s videos as marital aids. There’s still another chapter to come.
The Mountebank by @kdazrael E - 15,300 Kylo signs up for what he thinks is a paid medical study; Dr Hux is surprisingly good at giving prostate exams and massages. And for what purpose is he keeping all of those semen samples? During a one night stand (not with Hux), he comes to the realization that all is not right - and resolves to confront that charlatan the very next day. The dialogue in this is off the charts.
Bad Things by @ellabesmirched E - 78,200 - updated 2/22/17 A serial killer’s body count is growing, but Detective Ben Solo is on the job. He meets Hux when Hux’s business partner Snoke is the latest victim. This fic showcases Ben the sort-of out-of-control mess and features an amazingly hot non-intercourse sex scene. The dialogue in this fic is especially great and in-character.
Disney’s Mix & Match Villains by Eric and Susan Goldberg
Genie animator Eric Goldberg and his wife Susan have created this BEAUTIFUL and RIDICULOUS book where you take the iconic Disney villains (Maleficent, Cruella De Vil, Jafar, Ursula, the Queen of Hearts, Ratcliffe, Frollo, etc.) and mix and match
their costumes, faces and legs to come up with some truly hilarious results. What’s more, the text also changes according to your mixing, as does the appearance of the side-kicks and protagonists!
Request: “hey would you be doing requests by any chance?? If so, would you please be able to write a Simon one based off the song ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ - Shawn Mendes ft. Camilla Cabello. So basically the reader has been on a holiday recently and Simon has a feeling/thinks she’s cheated & there’s tension, endings up to you. I love your writing so much!! Thank you xxxx”
Note: This did not turn out the way I expected it to at all. Whelp. You brought this upon yourselves lol. 2950 words. [master list]
