this was pretty good but i did expect better

i don’t see how anyone is surprised that marlene killed yvonne so spoby could happen. it was pretty fucking obvious that she wasn’t going to stick around from the start. it’s rushed, it’s shitty writing, it’s problematic as hell, and yvonne and spoby both deserved a far better resolution. 

But come on, this is the writing team that decided romance was having caleb and spencer fall in love for half a season only for caleb to cheat on her with hanna and then claim he’s loved hanna all along, who are still romanticizing a teacher/student relationship that, even looking past all it’s other transgressions, continues to be boring af, who think the best way to put emily and alison together, the slowburn ship to end all slowburn ships who would have had no trouble being brought together naturally, is to introduce two other girls for emily and then inject emily’s eggs into alison in a complete and utter violation of both girls bodies. 

like, did you expect better from the writers? really? if you didn’t see this coming i don’t know what to tell you.

(T/N: Please note that there might be something lost/erros in the translation. Also, there are sentences that got paraphrased. Thank you and enjoy!)

Q: You’re about to leave. Did your visit to Maldives meet your expectations?
Everything is nice. It was nice to see turtles when snorkeling. Following manta ray and scuba diving were fun. Lastly, taking seabob was pretty fun too. As expected, it was good to have mojito in Maldives. When I did the photoshoot, the weather was pretty good that I got drawn by the atmosphere when doing it. Everything is just a good memory. It’s unforgettable.

Q: Originally, your nickname was flaming charisma, right? I wanted to call you flaming stamina. Your tanned skin is visible after doing water activities.
I actually wanted to get tanned. I should’ve gotten more tanned, so it’s too bad I wasn’t able to. I think my stamina is certainly better than others. When I’m with other people, they all are tired although I don’t really feel tired. It may be because we do performances many times that our stamina naturally becomes better?

Q: You came here with Onew. How was the other members’ reactions?
We both talk a lot, and it was great that we both came here together. I asked him to come here again next time. I didn’t show off to them, but they must be jealous inside. Haha!

Q: You’re in the middle of concert tour now, is everything going smoothly?
It’s a very long tour, but it’s nice to meet fans from concerts. I gain strength when I perform, so I’m always thankful to my fans.

Q: Do you see your fans’ face and expression from the stage?
I can see them very clearly and we make eye contact too. I put on in-ears, so I can’t hear what they say well. I take off my in-ears during performance when I really can’t hear or when I want to hear my fans voice. There are a lot of times when I want to hear my fans cheer louder so I take off my in-ears.

Q: It’s been 9 years since you debuted together. Isn’t it amazing?
We didn’t really think that it’s amazing, but the people around us said that it’s a big thing. There are words that idol’s life-span is 5 years or 7 years. Without troubles and worries, we have passed that phase safely. If you ask what are the tips, honestly there is nothing to say. We know what we are good at and what we don’t like, so we understand  each other and are considerate of each other.

Q: Your 9th year anniversary happened on the day when you’re here, right?
Ah, I was very touched by the cake. May 25 is a very special number to me. It’s like a day I was born again? I always think of it as my 2nd birthday. My debut day is unforgettable.

Q: What did you say to the members?
Before we came here, I asked them to go for a drink together and we all had the same thought. We said something like, ‘Although it’s hard and it can be exhausting, let’s work hard’. We don’t really do cheesy talk. We already understand without needing to say it to each other.

Your heart dropped to your stomach as nausea crept over you. How did you not know he was seeing someone else? Your job was to promote them. You definitely would have known if he had a girlfriend.

And furthermore… why did JYP send you all those signals to reach back out and make up for lost time if Jaebum HAD A GIRLFRIEND? Why didn’t Jinyoung tell you before you foolishly traipsed over here, hoping that you’d see him and sparks would fly?

This is the first of a pair of stories for the dialogue only @xfficchallenges It is also for the conversation about learning about sex through fanfic between an anon and @storybycorey and @2moms-0fucks. Sex is not generally as glamorous as we write, is it? So it got me thinking about the realities of Mulder and Scully getting down and dirty.

Set in season 7… not too NSFW.

“Mulder, do you want me to help you in the bathroom?”

“I’ve been holding it with one hand for a few years now, Scully.”

“I meant with your bandage, your wound care.”

“I can manage.”

“I’ll be right outside.”

“There’s beer in the fridge. We didn’t get to celebrate the New Year properly.”

“I don’t know, Mulder. That kiss was a nice way to ring it in.”

“I can do better. If you’re willing to do some more ringing.”

“Mulder, you’ve had a big night. It’s probably not the best time to…”

“To what? I just want to kiss you again.”

“I’ll get the beer. You do what you need to do in the bathroom, Mulder.”

“I’ll be right out.”

“I always did wonder what your bottom lip would feel like against my mouth, Mulder.”

“Better than you expected or better than you hoped?”

“It’s right up there with the smell of freshly baked bread, the unfurling of a new leaf, a new book by your favourite author, the cry of your newborn.”

“That’s a pretty good list of amazing things, Scully. I’m humbled. Can I be honest with you? I always did wonder what your breasts would feel like against my mouth.”


“I’m sorry. It’s the beer. No, actually. I’m not sorry. It’s the drugs. Can I say something else? I’m going to anyway. Your breasts are perfect. No, I mean it. They’re not too full, they sit just so, your nipples are neat and the most delicate shade of coral and I want to kiss them and suck them and…can I? Can I kiss them?”

“This is getting uncomfortable here, Mulder. My neck against the arm of the couch. It’s…can we go to your bedroom?”

“Can I check it first?”

“For what? Zombies?”

“Well, if you consider that I haven’t done my washing for a few weeks, there might well be some inanimate objects now able to walk by themselves.”

“If you need to find where you’ve thrown your undies and socks, then by all means, I’ll wait out here.”

“I’ll be real quick. Promise.”

“Mulder, do you feel okay?”

“Just a bit light-headed. It’s okay. I’ll be fine.”

“This is probably not a good idea.”

“Scully, this is the best idea we’ve ever had.”

“Mulder, you’ve been attacked by…unknown assailants, you’ve got a nasty shoulder injury, you’ve been given some pretty heavy medication, you’ve been awake for more than 24 hours…”

“And I’m incredibly turned on and I don’t want to stop and I love you, Scully and don’t roll your eyes and ‘oh brother’ me again, Scully. Don’t. Just let me love you and let me make love to you and ouch!”

“I’m sorry, I caught my nail on your…Mulder, are you okay? You’re pale. You’re clammy.”

“I’m fine. Here…let me lie back and you get on top. You like it on top, don’t you? I mean, I can see all of you and I can help you get…there…if you can’t…I mean if you have trouble…do you have trouble with that, Scully? I’ve never asked you. I mean I know some women…”

“Shut up, Mulder. I can get there just fine most times. With or without help. But with your constant jabbering I can’t concentrate and I need to focus. It’s…”

“It’s what, Scully? It’s good? It’s good for me, I…ow!”

“What? Did I hurt you?”

“I moved too quick. My shoulder…I just want to touch you…oh god, Scully. You feel so…”

“Mulder? Mulder?”


“Mulder, are you okay? Can you open your eyes?”

“M’fine…are you? What are you doing here, Scully?”
“I came back from the hospital with you, remember? To make sure you could manage…to help you…”

“I feel good. Really good. Do you feel good?”

“I feel fine, Mulder. Go back to sleep.”

“Happy New Year, Scully. Did I say that to you yet?”

“Yes, Mulder. You did.”

“I don’t remember.”

“You need to rest. Just go to sleep. I’ll be right here when you wake up.”


“Yes, Mulder?”

“I love you.”

“Oh, brother.”

Joshua glanced over his shoulder to look at the young girl who was sitting on the backseat of the empty-looking van. She was looking out of the window next to her and he smiled at how excited she looked. It was his younger sister. He had picked her up from the airport with his manager.

“Are we there yet?” she asked.

“Five more minutes,” he answered with a grin. “Are you really that excited?”

“I’ve been curious about them for a long time already,” she said. If she hadn’t had the seatbelt on, she probably would have been all over the place.

About five minutes later the manager who was driving stopped the car. “We’re here,” he announced.

Before Joshua could react, his sister had already exited the car. He chuckled and got out too.

“You live here?” she asked her brother while pointing at the building in front of them.

“Yup,” Joshua said and walked to the door. “Let’s go.”

Trying to keep his laughter in, Joshua introduced his sister to his members who all looked a little nervous or were smiling at how adorable his sister was.

“Nice to meet you,” she bowed to the guys who did the same.

“Should we greet her with our group greeting?” S.Coups asked the others and everyone nodded a little hesitantly. It was a bit awkward to do the greeting to a member’s family member. Still, they still did it despite it being painfully awkward. Joshua joined the greeting too.

“Wow,” his sister clapped excitedly while smiling widely after they had done the greeting.

The guys introduced themselves quickly which wasn’t necessary since she had already learned their names beforehand. She had memorized them during the flight since she had been too excited to sleep.

“Want to see the rest of the dorm?” Joshua asked after everyone was done introducing themselves and she nodded, excited.

“Did you guys clean here because I was coming?” she asked before anyone could move, catching the members off-guard.

“Of course we did,” Jeonghan stated. “If we hadn’t, you wouldn’t be able to walk here. That’s how messy it is usually.”

“Oh, then I guess I made the right choice when I decided not to surprise you guys,” she chuckled. “I would have loved to see you guys’ faces though. It would have been hilarious to see you all trying to clean up the mess as fast as possible.”

“Yeah, it’s good you decided to tell us beforehand,” Joshua put his hand on her shoulder. “I would have told you to go back home if you did that.”

“Really?” she asked.

“No, but don’t ever even consider doing it, please,” he said with a serious tone, making the others chuckle.

Hoshi was the one to lead the group in to the first one of the bedrooms. Joshua looked at how his sister looked at the pictures the guys had attached to the wall. Most of them were there just for memories, some were gifts from fans and some were just meant to be there for the visual.

“Is this from a fan?” she asked when she saw a picture of Dino hung on the wall. It looked like the picture had been taken during a concert or an event of the kind.

“Yeah,” Dino answered the question.

There was a silence for a few seconds during which she observed the photo. “Ah, it’s this dance, right?” she asked and started doing the Pretty U chorus dance.

Joshua laughed while the others looked at her with surprised smiles.

“Wow, you’re good!” Hoshi held his thumbs up when she stopped the somewhat weird dancing.

“Oh, please,” she laughed. “I literally watched the performance like once.”

“Maybe but you did a lot better than I would have ever expected,” the performance unit leader said, still looking surprised.

The guys gave the girl a tour of the whole dorm, showing her every room they had and saying the same thing every time they opened a new door:

“Normally this room looks disgusting.”

They were maybe overly dramatic about it: their dorm was never really that dirty. The word messy would be a better way to describe the dorm in its usual form.

“Are you tired from the flight?” The8 asked after the short tour was over.

“Not really,” she answered. “Or could be that I’m just too excited to notice it,” she grinned.

“Hungry?” Jeonghan asked.

She nodded. “A little.”

That was enough for him to take her to the kitchen - the others followed behind. After making her sit down on one of the chairs in the kitchen, a few of the guys started to look for something to eat.

“We didn’t have time to go grocery shopping,” Joshua explained to her. “We’ve had a pretty packed schedule for a while.”

“It’s okay, I’m fine with anything,” she smiled. “As long as it’s not something that has been in that fridge for like a year or something. I don’t intend to get sick.”

“Aw, dang it,” S.Coups said after hearing her comment. “That’s exactly what we were planning on making you eat,” he joked, earning some chuckling and a few nudges from the others.

“How about we order something?” Wonwoo suggested. “Would you be fine with that?” he asked her who nodded immediately.

There wasn’t an actual dining area in the dorm so everyone just ate wherever they wanted. Most stayed in the kitchen, Joshua, his sister and a couple of other members ate in the living room.

“Seungkwan you are unusually quiet,” Joshua pointed out, a tiny bit amused by how weirdly shy - or maybe awkward would be a better way to describe him at that moment - the boy looked.  

“It’s not like I’ve had a chance to say anything since everyone has been so loud from the beginning,” Seungkwan mumbled, leaving everyone amused.

“No one’s talking right now,” Vernon pointed out.

“Food is more important than talking,” Seungkwan stated and the girl sitting opposite him started laughing. That made him feel a lot better immediately, it was almost like he gained some self-confidence after hearing her chuckle.

“You are the entertainer of the group, right?” she asked.

“Well, you could say that,” he said, feeling a little proud.

“He’s also in charge of being one of the loudest members along with a few others,” Woozi - who had just entered the room after finishing his meal - said. “He never shuts up,” he said in a joking way.

“But it’s not just him, we are all quite noisy, especially when we’re together,” Joshua chuckled.

“True,” Woozi agreed with a grin.

After eating everyone kind of just gathered in the living room. Seungkwan and Joshua’s sister started talking and soon the conversation became a “show”. The two had the others laughing so hard they were having trouble breathing. They were a perfect match in terms of humor: their jokes matched perfectly and their bright personalities made sure that the mood didn’t go down even for a second. There wasn’t even one quiet moment and everyone was loving the mood.

The others took part in telling jokes and making witty comments. DK was probably the most active one out of everyone since he was pretty much the third person who was leading the “show”.

“She is adorable,” Jeonghan said to Joshua who smiled in response. He had sat down next to Joshua who had been sitting on a couch while listening to his sister and Seungkwan.

“I wish I had a sister like her,” Hoshi - who was sitting on Joshua’s other side - said, chuckling at a joke. Joshua felt proud hearing that.

Meanwhile in the corner of the room, Jun and Wonwoo had sat down on some pillows and were watching the “show”. They both laughed, though Jun was laughing only a little. After a while, Jun and Wonwoo welcomed Dino - who had been chatting with Hoshi about something - in to their small gang. Now there were two people in the corner that pretty much kept laughing all the time while Jun just sat there, letting out occasional chuckles.

“Isn’t she hilarious?” Wonwoo nudged the youngest one and Dino nodded immediately.

The room was filled with laughing. Jun rolled his eyes a little. I mean, she is fun and all but she isn’t THAT funny guys…


miss movin’ on: Idk why they’re still doing this song but go off I guess lol. Camila’s opening solo is relatively easy to sing and Normani sounded great on it!

Sledgehammer: Dinah sounds good on another one of camila’s easy solos.her adlibs are better than camila’s but she still needs to tone it down a notch. I however really liked how she sang the bridge. she nailed the belt note (Some said it was a little shouty but I didn’t feel like it was)

reflection: Tens all around! The solo should have been Dinah’s from the jump. It isnt in the video but ally cover’s camila’s second solo and its satisfactory.

This is how we roll: Lauren covers camila’s first solo,its fine,I mean its sing talk you can’t really fuck it up lol. To think of the injustice of giving camila a belt note she couldn’t reach in her fucking dreams,when ally can effortless reach it and go even higher…tsk tsk! Safe to say the solo should have been hers!

scared of happy: camila’s first solo is a duplicate of normani’s so its no surprise she did it well. Lauren surprised me! She did camila’s part of the bridge pretty well and made it better (no screeching). Her range may be deteriorating,but atleast its not non existent yet…and hopefully never will be!

write on me: If the bullshit story they fed us about them auditioning for solos is true then how the fucking fuck did the pre-chorous not go to Dinah? She did it miles better than camila ever did! The bridge however,Normani was flat and while camila screeched it,dinah was alittle shouty too. I did like ally’s and lauren’s part though but honestly that bridge is a mess. both when they did it and when camila did it!

I Lied: Ally did well on the chorus. Its really high pitched and I can imagine it’s difficult to sing it if you don’t have an Alvin and the chipmunks ass voice,but I enjoyed her rendition of it and she actually managed to make it sound a little mature. No one can really do camila’s runs (that’s…not a complement) so the change in camila’s solo was expected,ally did alright.

no way: Not much to say,Normani did good,but it was pretty hard to fuck up as it follows the same melody as her own solo.

we know: I’ve always thought camila should have been left out of this song because her voice doesn’t suit it at all and I stand by that! Ally’s version of her solo is better!

dope: Easy solo,Dinah does it well(fucks up the lyrics though haha).

squeeze: camila’s solo on the album is good (sounds like she’s doing an Ellie Goulding impression but I’ll stay mute) but for some reason she adds that embellishment that makes it sound weird live (story of camila’s life)! I love Normani’s voice on squeeze and she does camila’s solo better live.

big bad wolf: The one thing I genuinely liked about camila’s voice is how she did the howl on BBW and ally kinda struggled at it. I however liked how she sang camila’s solo.

BO$$: Again,sing talk,not really that challenging. Satisfactory rendition. 

Not that kind of girl: Dinah simply sounded superior on Camila’s solo. point blank and the period!

flex: Apart from work from home,this is arguably the worst camila sounds on the whole album.Ally does a decent job at covering up camila’s really bad embellishments. It hits the ear better.

Brave Honest Beautiful: I am a big hater of BHB,Largely because the lyrics are trash (thanks Meghan Trainor) but also because the chorus is SHRILL! Dinah’s version,where she breaks into falsetto softens the harshness that camila brought to that chorus and its bearable! Lauren’s raspy voice honestly fits the pre-chorus better and she should have gotten that solo instead of nothing!And by far the WORST think on BHB is camila’s solo on the second verse,especially the way she sings the word ‘star’. how a producer in good conscience put that tragedy on the finished song will always be beyond me! I like what ally and the girls did with it way better! They make this Disney ass song mature (well as mature as you can make a song with the line ‘you deserve a Hollywood star’ in it)

gonna get better : Another case of duplicate verses (no more of this in the new era please) so obviously Normani nails it!

worth it : YAS YAS YAS YAS! that was meant to be Lauren’s solo and I am mad that she got nothing when she sounds 100 times better than camila on that particular solo (more proof that the ‘the producers pick the solos’ retort is total bullshit)! She sounds sexy AS HELL and I kinda wish she did the original line but hey,its raunchy and I don’t blame her for not wanting to! 10s across the board!

work from home: Every single moment of the new arrangement is perfection. End of story!

verdict: *Sings Missy Elliot’s ‘I’m better’*

cause and effect thoughts

Last night’s episode was so good the best in a while. I’m so happy my Sav!Barry time remnant theory was pretty much spot on but the show kind of did a bad job at explaining it so I’ll probably link my theory. I was expecting a little bit more reactions from the team especially Iris but the whole point of the episode was to show how much she loves him and how he’s realizing his dark side is a part of him and it makes him a better hero and person. It made my heart hurt when Barry was willing to kill himself right then there in the beginning he’s willing take his own life if it meant that it would save her. Grant’s acting was so good he played 3 different Barrys and he made them so believable I love that he’s able to act off himself so well. Him playing Savitar and Our Barry reacting to him realizing what he could become without Iris and the team. There was a clear difference in the way Grant plays amnesia Barry and Our Barry. Our Barry is clearly emotionally damaged by his past and this stressful present you can see it in his eyes and his voice but amnesia Barry was so happy like a lost excited puppy in love, he was just so energetic and his tone of voice was higher because he was happy no wonder Iris wanted him to stay that way.

Candice did a fantastic job this episode she carried it so well and she was in it for 26 minutes which I don’t think that has happened in a long ass time. Barry had no memories Iris took charge and we got to see things from her perspective especially Barry. We’ve always known how Barry feels about Iris and of course she loves him too but it was from his perspective like he said he had everything he ever wanted because they’re finally together. This episode was pretty much the first time we’ve seen her side of her love for him and it was amazing to watch. They were falling in love all over again, it was so heartwarming to see them smiling and laughing as she was telling him their history it’s a side of them we haven’t seen in a while. This bitch had no memories and he was still waxing poetic to her and making my heart melt. My heart broke for her this episode because she just wants him to be happy he hasn’t been this happy since before his mom died and she was willing to sacrifice their history to keep him that happy. The look on her face when amnesia Barry was asking her if they started planning the wedding yet was heartbreaking because they haven’t even talked about it because they’re trying to save her but he doesn’t know that.

In conclusion, this episode continues the golden 21st episode of the season trend. It was needed in light of everything that’s going on. It showcased Grant’s acting skills, highlighted Grant and Candice’s incredible chemistry. Confirmed yet again that Iris is Barry’s lightning rod because she activated his speed and memories (again). It’s now canon that Iris and Barry have been in love for nearly 17 years (when will your OTP ever?).  More importantly this episode showed us that Barry and Iris deserve nothing but happiness. I really hope next season follows the trend of this episode and is a lighthearted season like season one because The Flash is supposed the more lighthearted one and it hasn’t felt like that in a while.

“Holy crap,” I said. While staring off at Rose and Dimitri, a brilliant flash had caught my eye—a flash on Rose’s finger.
“What’s that?” I exclaimed. “Did you rob Lissa’s crown jewels?”
Rose, in what was a rare look for her, actually appeared flustered. “Maybe it’s too much.”
Dimitri brought her hand up to his lips and kissed the top of it. “No, it’s perfect.”
Jill clapped her hands in delight. “An engagement ring!”
“Hold up,” I ordered. “Show the goods.”
With Dimitri grinning, Rose complied, holding out her left hand for the rest of the table to see. It was a remarkable piece of work. A large, perfectly cut round diamond was set into a lacy square of platinum filigree that was edged in tiny blue opals. It was a statement ring if ever there was one, and a wholly unexpected choice.
“Did you pick that out?” I asked Dimitri. Honestly, I would have expected him to bend a piece of steel with his bare hands and present her with that.
“He did,” said Rose, her normal good humor returning. “He kept telling me that once I turned twenty, it was just a matter of time before he proposed. I told him if he did, he better make it a rock star ring—nothing subtle.”
“That’s pretty rock star,” said Eddie. “How long ago did this happen?”
“About a month,” said Dimitri. “I got her to wear it but can’t get her to set a date.”
She grinned. “All in good time, comrade.”

Charles Xavier- Beach Party

Request:  can you write a imagine with charles xavier x student reader? She is only 5 years younger than charles and a teleporter. she is always travelling around world in her spare time with bff jean? One day charles asks her to throw a party for jeans birthday in some place exotic and at the beach party charles admits the reader he loves her? It is so detailed Im sorry :( please write I love your writings so much!

So this one turned out to be longer than I thought it would but man I hope it is still good. I tried really hard… but I don’t know about it. Anyway, hope you enjoy it and if you’ve sent in requests they are on their way I’ve just been lazy, Tab has been genuinely busy but I’m just lazy.

~Much love, Ive

You’d just gotten back from a trip to Sweden with Jean. The two of you were best friends and were always travelling the world together making use of your teleportation power. You teleported back into your room, so you weren’t caught as you’d been told not to go away this weekend by Charles who needed you to prepare for a class or something, you weren’t really sure you were somewhat jet lagged (if you could call it jet lag since you didn’t use a plane) when he spoke to you and his face is a little distracting. Why was he so pretty? You and Jean appeared in your room, giggling. As you slumped onto your bed the door opened.

“Do you guys think I’m stupid?” Charles spoke as he entered the room, “I know you’ve been gone all weekend,” He sighed.

“Sorry, we just got carried away, it was only supposed to be a day trip,” You said through a couple of giggles. You couldn’t help that you’d just been having so much fun.

“Jean can you leave the room please, I need to speak with Y/N,” His voice became harsh and all the giggles suddenly silenced. Jean shot you an apologetic look and crept out the room, gently closing the door behind her.

“I’m so sorry, I didn’t know it would be this much of a big deal,” You desperately started to apologise.

“Y/N, it’s okay just calm down. I needed Jean out of the room and I figured this would be the best way to do it.”

“What? So I’m not in trouble?” You asked feeling very confused.

“Well, I’m not happy but I have other things I want to discuss with you right now.” Charles sat on the bed next to you, “As you probably know, Jean’s birthday is coming up next Saturday and since she’s been having a pretty hard time this year I thought it’d be nice if we threw her a bit of a surprise party.”

“Oh, that’d be amazing. She’d love that,” You said smiling. Charles was so kind hearted, you hadn’t even thought of that and she was your best friend. Although you loved this idea you felt a little guilty that you hadn’t come up with it yourself.

“Can you meet up with me tomorrow to discuss the details?” He asked. You happily agreed and with that he left.

After your discussion with Charles about Jean’s birthday the day was finally arriving. You’d spent hours planning the perfect place to go and the food you’d eat and you were pretty proud of what you and Charles had come up with. You’d found the perfect little beach in Rio that was completely free of tourists and could only be reached by boat or your teleportation powers. You’d spent the morning teleporting the rest of the x-men so they could all be there to surprise Jean later on as well as set everything else up while you worked on getting her there. The plan was foolproof and you were so excited.

When Jean came into the kitchen that afternoon you greeted her, pretending to forget it was her birthday.

“So I was thinking, we should go to Rio today. You know snow one weekend and sun the next. What do you think?” You asked, trying to keep it casual.

“Um, yeah. Sounds good but you won’t get in trouble again will you?”

“Charles and a few of the others have gone out for some training, everyone else is busy with classes and stuff like that so they won’t even know we’ve gone.” You smiled trying not to show you were lying, “Now, go grab your swimsuit.”

You teleported Jean to the beach and the second you appeared everyone yelled ‘happy birthday’. Jean jumped at the crowd of people there as she was clearly not expecting it but she quickly turned to you with a huge smile on her face.

“You did all this for me?” She asked, pulling you into a big hug.

“Well it wasn’t all me,” You said gesturing to Charles who was sipping a drink.

“Thank you so much Y/N,” She said giving you one last squeeze before releasing you to go and thank the others. You wandered over to the table while Jean was busy with the crowd of people wishing her a happy birthday. The speakers was playing one of your favourite songs as you grabbed a huge slice of watermelon.

“This party is even better than I’d expected,” You heard Charles say from beside you.

“It was all you,” You said tilting your head towards him in thanks.

“All I did was come up with the idea, you did pretty much everything else,” Charles threw his hands up, refusing to take credit. You scoffed but didn’t want to argue with him. “You know, I think we make a pretty good team,” Charles said as he looked deeply into your eyes. Suddenly your insides felt all funny and all you could do was blink at him trying to think of words to say. Everyone was dancing around you but the only person you could concentrate on was Charles.

“I think so too,” Was all you could say after a long period of silence.

“You know, Y/N…” Charles let out a nervous laugh, “I… I uh…” He stammered.

“What?” You panicked slightly, thinking you’d forgotten something and he was trying his best to politely tell you that you ruined the whole party.

“I’m in love with you,” He spoke calmly but the words seemed rushed and you could tell he was nervous to tell you but you were so glad he had.

“I love you too.” You smiled up at him.

“Really? Oh thank god, I was so worried I’d screw everything up with you-“

“Charles, I really do.” You said cutting him off and reaching for his hand. He squeezed your hand as he held it in his. He leaned in towards you and you followed his lead, leaning in for a kiss when you were suddenly interrupted by Jean who slung her arms over both of your shoulders.

“Thank you both so much,” She said with a huge smile on her face, “You guys have to come and dance with me!” She started pulling both of you towards the dance floor and all you could do was look at Charles and know that you’d have all the time in the world to kiss him later.

A/N: I hope you all enjoy this cute fic I wrote up! I like putting all four of them together. I just love them all so much! You can request stuff <3 The Christmas Drabble list is HERE. <3

You woke up, jumping out from under your sheets.  It was finally Christmas.  Sure, you were in the bunker, but you had Sam and Dean.  Throughout the years Christmas had been rough for the three of you.  

You slipped on a pair of slippers making your way to the kitchen.  When you made it to the kitchen, Dean and Sam were nowhere to be found.  You checked the rest of the bunker; still no Dean or Sam.  You slumped down in a library chair looking around.  You saw a note on the table across from you.  You padded up to the table, plucking the note from the wooden surface.

Hey [Y/N],

    We’re sorry we had to leave so suddenly.  Dean and I got a call from Jody, and we had to leave.  Don’t worry.  We’ll all celebrate when we get back.  Dean didn’t want to take the case, but there’s a kid involved.  We knew you would want us to help that kid.  We’ll be in touch

NEWS na Futari SP 2016.12.29/2017.01.13 

There were two separate filmings for this one so I’ll write about them by themes rather than by dates. Both topics were very important and I want to talk about them even if this gets subbed later. 

The first topics was discrimination against mixed Japanese. Some heavy themes ahead!

All of the guest were “halves” which is to say only one of their parent was Japanese, including Zawachin famous for her “eye make-up” impersonating celebrities and Ariana Miyamoto, Miss Universe Japan 2015 . 

The complaints were many: that people expect them all to be cute and pretty, and good at English. Basically, they are often treated like foreigners even though most of them grew up in Japan. Shige joked “It’s like we are expected to be able to do a back-flip just because we’re Johnny’s.” And Koyama said “That’s a great example to understand!”

I love how Shige often acted as an interpreter, giving additional explanations from the guests to better explain their position and add facts. Unlike the male panelists who did nothing but make rude and stupid jokes. I understand the show has to have some entertaining value but comments like “they only bullied you because you have a bad temper!” were very unnecessary.

Another issue was that while being half-European is viewed as cool, being half-Asian is seen as inferior. They especially talked about Filipino women since two of the guests’s mothers were Filipino. A lot of them came to Japan looking for work and often worked as hostesses and dancers so they became viewed as inferior. Shige went to a Filipino district to investigate. He first talked with a woman who came to Japan to work as a dancer to help supper her 10 siblings and now owns her own bar. The saddest thing was that not only was she harassed by the Japanese, she was also harassed by Filipino for going to Japan. However, she said that things are much better now and she is hopeful about the future. He also talked to a 23-year old girl whose mother is Filipino.

Zawachin and Raburi also shared their stories of being bullied. They were mostly bullied for their skin colour and called “fry pan” and “cockroach” and also in case of Zawachin for her bad Japanese. The children’s mothers sometimes would not let their kids play with her just because of her mother. Shige said the kids are not the ones to blame for their bullying, but their parents and teachers, they’re the ones who need to stop this.

After that came the story of Ariana Miyamoto growing up in Japan. She said kids at school often kept their distance. They wouldn’t touch her hands and got away from her in the pool saying that her skin colour will stain them. A lot of it came from the parents who wouldn’t let her in the house and whisper behind her back. At 15 she went to US and her problem dissolved because everyone just treated her normally. While working as a bartender she met Steve, also mixed. He grew up in Japan and had similar experience so they became close friends. However, Steve was a very troubled guy, he didn’t know English and was confused about who he was. A year after they met she learned that he committed suicide. During their last talk he said he wanted to do something to help people such as himself and she said she would help. So that was the reason why she applied for the Miss Universe contest. Such an amazing woman.

Shige said he was hoping by watching this show people would not just think mixed Japanese people are good-looking but also very strong because a lot of them endured a lot of hardships in the past and see that as their true appeal. He also hoped people would learn from them and it would resonate with those who had a similar experience. Such an amazing man.

Shige also went to a monthly “Hafu” meeting. Not all the people there were of mixed race, some were foreigners and the only rule for joining was that you should know English. There Shige heard more stories of hardships. While all the studio guests were girls, boys shared some specific boy problems such as other guys trying to peek on them in the bathroom and sauna to check out their peen. Shige said it was a Japanese complex.

All in all, most people said in recent years and with the help of celebrities the situation is getting better.


Yu-Gi-Oh Cafe, May 9th, Part 1!!! Part 2  | Part 3

Whew, now that I’ve finally got a bit of time to document my Japan Trip experiences, first off, day one Ikkebukuro Yu-Gi-Oh Cafe~!

Oh man, it was super neat and super lucky.  In order to attend the YGO cafe you need to either enter an online lottery (Japanese residents only) or line up in the morning before it opens and play a card drawing game.  If you win, you get a set of seats (1-3) during a time slot for that day.

Sadly, while @tachishini, @magicinflames, and I arrived early, the final spots were won before we got to the front of the line TTvTT YGO is majorly popular in Japan.  However, not to be deterred, tachi and magic lead me to the YGO floor of the arcade (that the cafe is in), full of UFO machines with YGO prizes, and they realized that the cafe sign said there was one time slot with a vacancy.  After talking with the staff, we learned there was ONE spot left for ONE person.  Thank you so much, tachi and magic TTvTT

Cue five hours later, non-Japanese-speaking Beaky is by herself in the YGO cafe on the first day of her trip @v@ Ahhh!  I was so nervous, but fortunately tachi and magic both coached me on what to do.

More details on the cafe and food, under cut~!

I got the results for my first year of university back today! I did better than i expected, maybe i underestimated my academic abilities a little.

Back To Hogwarts //Part 2//

~ Part two of Back To Hogwarts ~

Part 1

Plot: Harry tries to make a move on the new teacher who used to attend Hogwarts.

Warnings: None

A/n: So far Draco has been winning but I will count votes on this imagine too so feel free to leave a comment of who you want the reader to end up with. If you’ve already voted please don’t vote again. Thanks!

@princeofsassgard here’s a tag/shoutout for you :)

Enjoy :)

The next day your class went a little better than it did the previous day. You expected Harry and Draco to be there so you weren’t as nervous and as the class went on, they began to feel like regular students. By Friday’s class, you barely paid any mind to them.

“Alright so I finally got everyone’s quizzes examined so I know where you all stand now,” You began as you held a large stack of papers in your hands and displayed them to the class before dropping them back onto your desk. “They look pretty good and it seems like you all remember a lot from last year which is a good thing for me. There are two students who are a little behind that I would like to meet with, but I’ll tell them privately. Now everyone can open up their textbooks to page 212 and continue the packets we were working on yesterday. We’ll regroup in about ten minutes to discuss the section.” you smiled and the room filled with the sounds of thumping books, whispering voices and flipping pages. You went behind my desk and wrote two notes for the students that you needed to talk too. You stood up a moment later and began walking around the room, the notes in your hand, looking at student’s work as you passed. As you made it back to the first row, you dropped one note on Harry’s desk and another on Draco’s.

They both looked at you with wide eyes before looking at each other. You ignored them as you went back to the front of the room and grabbed a piece of chalk.

“Alright let’s come back together now,” You smiled and student’s looked back up at you. “I just want to let you all know that I hate textbooks as much as you do but sadly, I cannot demonstrate defensive spells against werewolves in the school so reading is the only way to fully educate you. But I can verbally teach it to you as well. So does anyone have any questions about the reading?”

anonymous asked:

What did you think of the latest episode of Poldark? I thought it was pretty good, especially the ending!

I thought it was amazing!!! I loved the first one, but this was waaaaay better!! We finally got some great Romelza! OH MAN, THE ENDING!! Seriously, I didn’t expect THAT to be the end! I’m dying for the next one!!! I’m happy you enjoyed it too!!

anonymous asked:

How were your results???

They were pretty good! Better than I expected. :)
I’m really happy that I got 2 times an 18/20, one for a course that I actually did not like that much so that was a surprise! 
I still have to do one exam, statistics, in August though. I felt like I didn’t have enough time to study everything (because I kinda neglected this course during the semester…) so I decided to do it at a later time so I could focus on my other courses! Ugh, I don’t like statistics, but I’m determined to do well on the exam!
But I’m really glad that my other results were ok! 

Thank you for asking! <3 

Episode 63 UGH I forgot about Haga

Things start out pretty cute.

Mai and Jou greet each other with a high five cause of course they do! 

Yugi is literally half Mai’s height today, good times.

They compare how many Locator/Puzzle cards they each have; Jou has two, Yugi has three and Mai…


Meanwhile, Anzu and Honda drop by the Game Shop hoping to pick up Yugi but he already left (rude) so they end up picking up Grandpa instead. 

Speaking of picking people up, Honda’s still being inappropriate towards Shizuka and says he phoned her again…


Anzu is on Team Ugh.

You tell him, Anzu. For the record: weird older boys constantly calling you when you’re currently blind and in hospital and also like 13 years old is, yes, the opposite of comfortable. It’s uncomfortable. UNCOMFORTABLE, HONDA.

Anyway the three duelists have split up and Jounouchi is immediately approached by this weird kid who asks for his autograph, which strokes Jounouchi’s “did everyone hear how well I did in that tournament?!?” ego until…

Turns out the kid is just playing the odds. 

(It immediately becomes clear that this kid is lying, and later becomes clear that there are multiple layers of lyingness going on with this kid, so you’d wonder why he came up with this as a lie, seems like it’d be easier to just agree with Jounouchi’s assumptions, but okay.)

(a) What’s up with him calling him “big brother”, like, they literally just met and it seems really presumptuous? Is this a thing in Japan, calling random strangers by family bonds? Cause I don’t remember it ever coming up before…


oh who are we kidding we all know he’s going to–


And ~fanservice~? Well, that is some hot forearm-baring action right there…

Having literally just handed it over, turned away and closed his eyes (?!?!?!), Jounouchi makes it clear just how terrible an idea that was.

I mean, I’d complain, but he’s actually done things with his actual life that are more careless than handing it to a random stranger…


Luckily, ACTION HONDA is here to save the day and catch the little thief. (Oh yeah the kid ran off with the Duel Disk, that seemed so obvious that I didn’t even bother to screencap it…)

And Honda presumably breaks both his legs, I mean holy shit!

So they interrogate the kid and the kid tells them he stole the Duel Disk cause he super wanted to play in Battle City but you need a rare card to stake to enter and someone stole his. It was at this point that the horrible realisation struck me…

Ugh. No. Seriously, there are worse people in YGO, like, people who should get longer jail time, but I actually think Haga is my least favourite person.

So he describes him and Jou, Honda and Anzu come up with a picture as he’s describing him, like, piece by piece, that looks like this:

And they’re all like “inSeCtOr HAgA?!” but he describes him as having a beetle-shaped head, bug-eyes, short, and a stupid laugh. You’d never get this picture from that description. You need a description like, “bowl cut seafoam hair, Harry Potter glasses, sleepy eyes, smug grin”.

So Jounouchi obviously immediately runs off to challenge Haga to a duel. Thereby falling RIGHT INTO HIS TRAP. Sigh.

Because indeed yes…

Omg Haga thinks he’s cool. No amount of hiding in the atmospheric shadows of sketchy alleyways is going to make you cool, fucker.

Case in point.

(Instead of giving the kid the rare card he promised him, he gives him a common card, then when the kid complains, he pulls his INSECT GUN and … squirts him with… I dunno man, insect goo of some description? Sigh.)

Meanwhile, in the hospital, Shizuka is making a friend…

“How the fuck would I know, lady, I’m blind.”

In fairness, she does know; she can hear the runaway patient breathing in the room which would be TERRIFYING except it turns out it’s just a little kid who doesn’t think he should have to go to school if he’s sick enough to be in hospital which frankly seems eminently reasonable. Shizuka doesn’t even lie to the nurse, she just asks questions that lead the nurse to believe she doesn’t know where the kid is. The school-skipping child is grateful enough to immediately adopt her into his immediately family.


So back in the city, the Nerd Herd finds Haga and they - only now, when they have found him - disagree on the approach to take!

Anzu thinks they shouldn’t engage with him cause he’s a cheater and a bad person and they should just report him. (Yes!)

Honda thinks they should just beat him up. (Okay!)

Jounouchi thinks he should DUEL HIM. (Pls no.)

Obviously Jou wins because it’s fucking Yu-Gi-Oh! and it wouldn’t be Yu-Gi-Oh! if people weren’t trying to solve problems with card games that should almost certainly be solved via other means. But I really think they should have had this conversation BEFORE they arrived.

By the way it’s not at all plot-important and I have no joke to go with it but I had to share with you Anzu’s “ew Haga” face

I feel you, girl.

Now importantly, the writers know that Jounouchi doesn’t have magic plot powers to win every duel, unlike Yugi/Yami, so Jounouchi duels can actually be suspenseful, because he might actually lose! And that’s why they had to go out of their way to remove that suspense in case the thrill of actual uncertainty meant you missed the minutiae of the card games.

Yes, Haga insists Jou bets both his Locator cards and you can only be in the tournament if you have at least one, so if he loses, he’s out, and it’s his second duel so we all know he can’t be disqualified this early, so good job, writers, suspense thoroughly neutralised! 

Shizuka gets her new friend to help her follow the duel action, getting him to look Jounouchi up in the KaibaCorp Duel System!!

… Okay that’s pretty cool although I expected a blue and white theme rather than the always stylish purple and yellow. But okay! That’s a better website than some present day non-fictional ones have…

Well I guess that confirms that the Rare Hunter only changed Jounouchi’s status on his own computer and not on the network. That or he did change it on the network and Kaiba noticed and changed it back… which I would also not rule out except Kaiba would be spitting fire if he figured out that the Rare Hunters were hacking into his system like that.

Obviously it would be too much to ask Haga to have come up with a strategy that isn’t “irritating disgusting insect shit” so we’re back to this:

“I’m pointing at the gross cocoon thing just in case you didn’t recognise it from EVERY FUCKING TIME I DUEL ANYONE.”

But now with added levels of cheatery!

with uncomfortably hentai-esque imagery, and turn their left arms into insectoid growths. Apparently.

…. Why would these cards exist? The parasite card and the parasite-triggering card. Is there a use for these cards that does not rely on pre-duel duplicitous shenanigans? 

Because indeed yes, although Honda is appalled at Jounouchi’s apparent idiocy in deck-building…


Also I’m feeling a great kinship with Anzu generally this episode. Likes: Yugi, friendship. Dislikes: straight boys creepin on younger girls, parasitic insects, cheating.


The kid stole the Duel Disk to slip the parasite card in.

Haga’s super pleased with himself because he’s fundamentally misunderstood the idea of preparation. 

By PRACTICING, asshole.

His defense is “if you didn’t want that card in your deck, you should have gone through your deck before you started the duel” which is … actually not a bad point since the deck was briefly stolen. Sure, you don’t expect someone to add a card to your deck but that kid could easily have also taken one.

So Jounouchi declares an attack on the big awful cocoon and Haga’s all hehehe and Jou is all TaKe A CLOSER loOK and Haga’s like

(it has 0 ATK and 2000 DEF) 

and I’m like, pls be over, and then Haga’s like lol jk

… and he has an insect-type barrier because of course he does.

And fuckin Grandpa has the gall to be impressed with this dickery!


Anyway thankfully they skip pretty sharpish through Haga increasing his own lifepoints (above 4000 too!) and decreasing Jounouchi’s until:

Butterfree I choose you!

Okay, I know probably many people have already posted something like this but whatever sue me. And also if anyone has not seen episode, do NOT read, because this contains spoilers, you have been warned.

What did you think of the episode? And what are your predictions?

I think it was weak compared to my (not only) expectations. It was pretty good, I must admit, but come on people, we stepped into season seven, the beginning of the end, white walkers are coming, there are only 6 episodes left in this season and honestly I did not even change my face expression more than 3 times! It was good episode, good for the season opening, but come on D&D, you’ve done so much better than that.

The opening was bad ass, YAS ARYA, although her storyline with faceless god and it’s mambo jambo doesn’t make sense, and it has been bugging me since the finale of S6, because you have to be No One to change faces so perfectly, like Arya does, and she is not No One, she made it perfectly clear that she is Arya Stark. But whatever, I’m sure Martin will spread storyline about that in the books. In conclusion, the opening was badass.

Let’s talk about The Lannisters. You have to be blind to not notice that Jaime is clearly not happy with whatever his psychotic sister is doing. And it was also very noticeable in S6 finale, when he got back to King’s Landing and saw Cersei on the throne. When I saw his face I instantly thought, if the bitch dies, Jaime Lannister will be responsible for it. What an irony right? Killed by the one you love and trust the most. I don’t know that’s just my prediction, but you can not deny the fact that Jaime is unhappy with everything Cersei does. And let me tell you, I already love Jaime in this season. Queen of Seven Kingdoms? My ass, like Jaime said, hardly 3. HOW HANDSOME IS NIKOLAJ.

Euron Greyjoy. This man is phenomenal. When Joffrey died, I thought there would be no other villain that would replace this little cunt, but Ramsey Bolton walked in like a boss. When he died, I thought same thing, but here we are, Euron fucking Greyjoy! I already adore him! Sassy, cheerful, mischievous and straightforward, comes, throws shade at Jaime and his golden hand, promises Cersei a gift, which I think is Yara Greyjoy, and leaves. He’s a fucking Psycho and I love it!

Now lets move up to Winterfell. As much as I love Jon Snow, I really am tired of hearing White Walkers are coming shit! I am Jon Snow obsessed freak, I love him and I’m gonna support everything he does, even if he burns down whole Westeros while riding Rhaegal, but my baby snowflake needs a FUCKING DEVELOPMENT! TRUE ENEMY IS COMING THAT IS COMING THIS IS COMING’ WE FUCKING KNOW! He needs different lines, fucking action, whatever, anything! But I’m sure we will move on from that quickly like we moved on from I’m Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, first of her name and 63929392921 more fucking titles. If I hear that in Season 7, I’m gonna break something. I also really love Lyanna Mormont, but PLEASE we know she is a badass little girl, STOP THROWING IT IN OUR FACES WITH HER SASSY LINES THAT DO NOTHING BUT MAKE HER LOOK COOL AND MAKE GROWN MEN LOOK STUPID. WE SAW THAT IN THE FINALE, IT WAS ENOUGH. HER LINES ARE ALREADY TOO PREDICTABLE! Littlefinger.. that little snake is up to something bad, as always, and I love it! So in the end.. Jon Snow needs more action, more speeches that are NOT about White Walkers, Sansa needs to stand with her fucking brother, not against him. In conclusion, the scene of Winterfell was really weak. BUT TORMUND AND HIS CRUSH ON OUR BLONDIE LADY OF TARTH.

Bran… I don’t know when he will go to Winterfell, but he better sit tight on his snowboard and slide all the way down to Winterfell because my baby snowflake needs to know about his true origins before he takes off to see Dany!

I can’t say much about The Hound, except when he buried father and his daughter was really good of him. I don’t know where are they going with his storyline, but for now, I can’t say anything. But how cool was the fact that they were in the house which Arya and The Hound visited in early seasons? Although he was right about the father and daughter dying before the Winter’s arrival.

Now for Samwell Tarly! Our chubby Sammy is not happy with his job! And he’s hilarious! Even tho I put my pillow on my screen during that cleaning shit up scene, I liked Sam’s scenes. That Jorah Mormont hand was not surprising, it was in the trailer. Remember this, our chubby little Samwell Tarly will save the half of Westeros, just by sitting, reading books and sending out ravens. From his scene I realized that after Jon receives raven, he will go down to Dragonstone and meet Dany. AND I’M FUCKING EXCITED FOR THAT! Although I hate Dany-Jon relationship theory, like EW! One incest is already enough.

And speaking of Dany. She’s finally home. Her scene was not very long but you can tell she is beyond happy and ready to take over. That scene when Dragons are flying around castle of Dragonstone and Dany watching them, gave me fucking chills! It was perfect and they ended episode in very symbolic way.. Daenerys with The Hand of The Queen, Tyrion Lannister, standing at the table, where she will plan her battles throughout the season, saying: Shall we begin? And that’s where it started. The beginning of the end took off.

Everyone knows that actions speak louder than words. On the other hand, most things are easier said than done. It’s a dilemma Tadashi has never quite been able to escape, and it makes itself especially apparent starting from the day Hinata confesses his affections for him.

On the evening of the day Kageyama and Hinata become official members of the Karasuno volleyball team, Tsukishima goes over to Tadashi’s house to play video games.

“What did you think of them?” says Tadashi as he watches Tsukishima channel his not-so-subtle frustration into a jab at the power button on Tadashi’s PlayStation.
