this was the day i met them

It's Been a Year

One year ago today, I listened to my first ever musical soundtrack because a friend of mine forced me to listen to part of it at lunch the day before and I was intrigued (though at the time, would not admit it) by the third song.

That soundtrack was Hamilton.

It opened a door that led me into the world of musical theater and since April 27th, 2016, I’ve listened to and watched various other musicals thanks to this same friend.

I’ve met friends because of Hamilton and the other musicals. I joined this website because of them.

Since listening to the soundtrack, I’ve become obsessed. I even got to go to Broadway and see the show, meet some of the cast plus the creator and brains behind the show, as well as the director, and stand on the legendary stage of the Richard Rodgers theater.

This musical, like others, means so much to me and I can not believe it’s been just a year.

(In case you’re wondering, @pontmarius is the friend)

Summary: What if two who are meant to be, finally realized they like each other after they teamed up?

Author’s Note: I love you all. Remember it. Continue requesting please. I love to write for you.

Y/L/N (Your last name) Y/N (your name)

 Finally the results were here. After waiting for a long time, we would know who won the talent show. Everyone was excited, even when some of them didn’t even perform.I was nervous because, I did. I participated and I knew I wasn’t the best singer, but I guess our job isn’t too bad.

My first class was with Mrs. Bradley so I went to my locker and took my notebook from it.

“Are you nervous?” Alex scared me while I took out my stuff.

“Hey, Alex.” I said and he laughed, getting next to me. “How are you?”

“I think we won. Like seriously, we made a great team.”

Alex Standall. No matter how hard I tried to hide it, I liked him. He was nice, and kind and cute. God, here I go to blush again. I closed my locker and continued walking next to him.

“So, yeah, maybe we won. But, I mean we weren’t the best.” I said and he gave me a weird grin.“

We were the best. We appeared on Ryan’s magazine.”

“That doesn’t count, you’re friends with him.” I laughed and he smiled.

“Well, I think we should plan what we’ll do with the prize.” He explained.

“We already talked about it. You take the half of it. I don’t know.” I said, moving my hands not really knowing what to say. We walked until I stopped at my classroom.

“I think it’s the best too, but I heard they included a dinner at Rosie’s”

“Ok, look we can discuss the prize at lunch. Yeah?” I touched his cheek and then I pulled my hand away. “Sorry, I-”

“Don’t worry. Actually, that’s what I wanted to ask you.” He continued a little blushed.

“Leave her alone, Standall. She’s mine dude.” Justin said playfully getting inside the classroom and I laughed looking at Alex getting serious.

“I’ll see you at lunch.” He finished and walked away.

I met Alex at the jazz recital a year ago. We said hello at each other, but we never got really close. I lost his track and then I thought it was just a weird crush. Then this year I heard him again because of Hannah. She did with me many projects, and told me about Alex and Jessica. Then they dated and I started to be away from them because I liked him a lot. But for destiny reasons, I found him again. And this time, was after Hannah died. I lost my poetry notebook, but fortunately he found it and that’s when the co-writing started. We needed the money, but now, I think we just need ourselves.

Some girls started to whisper about how the results were already published. So once I got out I went to look for Alex until I found him talking with Clay.

“Have you checked already?” I told him excited and he smiled.

“I was waiting for you.”

He said and I took his hand so we could see on the lists on the entrance door.

Winners: Y/L/N Y/N & Standall Alex.

Once I saw it and hug him immediately. I could feel his hands rest on my waist while I pulled him from the neck closer. He thought my voice was lovely, and he made me believe in myself. I really liked him. I let go of him slowly and then I saw some people staring at us from all the hallway.

“Thank you-” I whispered before Alex took my face in his hands and kissed me. A strange kiss, but a lovely one.

“I know you’re excited, but you can’t celebrate in here.” Mr. Porter’s voice scared me and I gave some steps backwards. “Congratulations” He smiled and he went to a classroom near, leaving us alone.

“Sorry.” Alex apologized and grabbed my hand. “But maybe we should go for our money, and our date at Rosie’s, right?”

“Date?” I questioned confused.“Okay.” He got in front of me and said. “That’s what I wanted to talk with you. I really like you. And I thought maybe, you’d like to go on a date with me?” He smiled and I smiled too.

“Yes, I’d love to.”

(Betty Cooper x Reader): She’s Perfect (3/4)

Summary: Reader met Betty at the internship over the summer and developed feeling for her. Since her parents are detectives they’re brought in to look at the Jason Blossom case, and reader moves to Riverdale.

A/N: Hope you enjoy! I should be posting the last section tomorrow! (apologizes for any spelling and grammar mistakes) 

Part 1 - Part 2 

The next few days were uneventful, you spent them hanging out with your new friends at school, getting involved in Student Council, or with Betty in the afternoons after you were both done with extracurriculars, that was when she would explain parts of Riverdale to you. Spending all of this time alone with her caused your feeling for Betty to continue to grow - it freaked you out.

The night of the dance you walked in with your little group. You had your arm intertwined with Archie’s (you’d almost gotten lost and Archie had decided that you needed to be guided into the dance with your own personal escort to make sure you didn’t accidentally trail off somewhere).

“So when do you have to decide the football thing?” You asked Archie.

“This weekend,” He replied, already sounding stressed about it, which made you feel bad for even bring it up.

“I’m going to go get some punch,” Veronica announced to the rest of you before walking away, you could have sworn she gave Betty a rather significant look but you thought maybe you were just imagine it.

“Now that I safely made it, I’m going to go grab something to drink really quick too,” You said, dropping Archie’s arm before following Veronica to the snack table.

Betty sighed as she watched (Y/N) leave, but that helped her decide, she’d admit her feeling to Archie. It was only fair after all, she’d liked Archie way before she even knew (Y/N), that had to be the right choice. “It’s about following your heart, right?” Betty asked Archie, “What does your heart say? Music or football?”

“Betty, will you give me one minute?” Archie asked.

You watched as Betty and Archie started to dance and walked up to where Veronica was serving herself some punch.

“So she still likes Archie?” You ask Veronica, surprised, you’d been convincing yourself that maybe she was returning your feelings.

“I wouldn’t be so sure,” Veronica replied, noncommittally.

“And I promise that when I get back I’ll be a much better person to be around.” Archie added before walking into the crowded dance floor.

Betty nodded, trying not to look to disheartened, as she watched Archie walk over to (Y/N). Betty’s heart sank.

Before you could really understand what Veronica had meant she had seemingly disappeared and Archie was suddenly in her place.

“Hey Archie,” You said, slightly confused of what he was doing with you when he had just been dancing with Betty.

“(Y/N)… I want to talk to you later tonight?” He asked you.

“Why can’t we talk about whatever it is now?” You ask, confused by what could be so important unless…he couldn’t possibly…

“I trust you, I want you to help me figure out what to do with football and music, I feel like you’re someone I can trust to be honest and help me make the right decision,” He tells you nervously.

“I’m going to find you later tonight and we’ll talk,” He says before disappearing again.

You stand there for a moment dumbfounded.

“Want to dance?” Archie asked Betty, suddenly appearing at her side again.

“Yeah,” She replied, trying to return to her happy facade, smiling at him as he led her onto the dance floor.

“Did that go okay?” Betty asked Archie, a look of concern across her face.

“Yes. Yeah, I just told (Y/N) that I need to talk to her later.” Archie replied.

“Oh,” Betty replied, feeling like her heart was going to crack, maybe she’d made the wrong choice, and by doing so was losing the two people she cared about the most.

As Betty and Archie danced they didn’t say much, they didn’t feel much either, Betty to was too wrapped up thinking about (Y/N) and Archie was thinking about the big decision he was about to make. If either of them had feeling for each other they certainly weren’t acting like it.

Across the dance floor you were dancing with Kevin and some of the football players, just goofing off and having a good time when someone invited you to come to an afterparty. 

Back to Zamboanga! 🙌🏻

3 days seem like a week full of happiness.

Wow! Sobrang happy ko lang to visit our province once again. Ilang beses kong hinintay na makapunta ulit kami sa Zamboanga. Halos lahat ng relatives ko kasi sa father side nandun. And cheren! I met some new faces ulit. Hihi.

Na-meet ko rin yung isa kong cousin. Sobrang weird kasi never pa kaming nag-meet. Then normally, I’m the snobbish type in person pero during that time, I felt na I am a changed person- naging sociable ako. There’s something in me na I want to know them ganun. Ang cool kasi sobrang dami naming similarities nung cousin ko na yun. Ang hinhin niya lang sobra then ako yung mej bad girl. Haha. Ayun, chikka. Mag a-apply daw kasi siya sa Manila then ayun, kwento kwento. Tataba yun dito! Haha.

Natuwa lang ako kasi ang benta ng beauty ko dun. HAHAHAHAHA! I have two relatives na kalook-a-like, we could be triplets! Lugi lang ako kasi napaka sexy nila! Voluptuous, sobra!

Can’t wait to go back there. Pero jusko lang talaga, sobrang init lately, pati ulo ko uminit. Ayun. Kwento lang. I got home lang eh and I’m sleepy na. Pagod sa byahe but, worth it! Wortg it pag a-absent. Habulin ko pa mga school works 😂 Inuna gala ha? Tapang ko na naman, shocks!

anonymous asked:

henlo i'm not sure if you've been asked this before but do you have any advice/references for drawing hands ?? i'm so tired of pretending clouds are hands in my art thank

Hands are difficult!!!!! I think the best suggestion I can give you is to check out different perspectives of hands on Pinterest, other artworks…and do studies on them!! Practice leads to improvement, so if you’re re-drawing the same hand position, you’ll find it a lot easier after doing it so often! Met a talented art dude once who said he didn’t know how to draw anatomy until he sat himself down and drew anatomy studies every day for a whole year!! Determination and motivation can get you anywhere :-)

I nearly met BTS and I just wanted to share this with you guys. So Ive lived in South Korea for about 3 years now and its great. I was never gonna move if it wasnt for my best friend. She got a job in bighit as a makeup artist and has been working since sebut days fam. So she's inviting me over telling me to bring her lunch but I always refuse cause theyre there with her. I mean what would you do. I get too nervous. I just cant bring myself to see them

That sounds like a really cool situation to be in!!

I’m not shy when it comes to meeting people, no matter who they are, so I wouldn’t STOP myself, but I would never go for the sake of meeting them, because I’m the kind of person that doesn’t care about meeting people…if that makes sense???? So if she really did want lunch I would go with zero problem, and yes probably die a little if I saw them (MMmmMM ESPECIALLY YOONGS HELLOO BB) BUT THAT’S ME AND YOU’RE YOU AND I TOTALLY GET WHY YOU WOULDN’T WANT TO, IT MIGHT FEEL A LITTLE WEIRD.

You do whatever you’re comfortable with, and if you get to meet them you do, and if you don’t, you don’t! I wish you luck in your situation and hope you have a great day!!!

💭 - Dalia

“I’ve heard of Dalia, but never met her myself. My spies were eager to come to me in the day when I had them, telling me all about how someone with my last name was making an ass of herself at a tavern, cursing and spitting and laughing and drinking… I thought it was Rolance, but no. Apparently my daughter went and made a mini-me, Light help us all.”


The time I ruined my high school teachers career and got her fired in the greatest way possible.

This story is widely known amongst my family and is constantly brought up and joked upon in my group of friends even years later. A buddy of mine suggested that this is the perfect place to make it public so let’s get into this shit storm.

Backstory: I was a senior in high school at the time and i had never been the brightest student. I was a solid C student and i had never received a detention or had any kind of bad student record. This is important because to this day, i still have no idea why the teacher treated me this way. The teacher, who we will name Mrs. Frank, had been a teacher there for more then a decade and was widely known for being a petty heartless bitch who the administrators saw as the golden child.

Mrs. Frank taught algebra, which is my worst subject, so naturally i had issues understanding the lessons and would ask questions frequently. To some these questions are easily answered but to me it was rocket science.

Usually when someone asks a dumb question, no one should address it however in Mrs. Franks case she would belittle me in front of everyone by saying things such as “And here comes the slow boy again” , “wow surprise surprise you don’t understand it again” “Really? We have to go extra slow for you today don’t we” etc…etc.

I tried going to the administration about it before but again she was considered the golden child. They would send someone in to examine her during class, she would act respectful and normal for one day, and go back to being a bitch the next.

This goes on for about half the year until i had enough. I went to the local radioshack, bought a recorder, and secretly recorded every insult she would throw at me. I would sometimes instigate to make up for the lost time.

Go ahead feed the fire.

Fast forward to the end of the year and im sitting in Mrs. Franks class when i ask a question. Her response, and i quote (because it’s burned into my brain) was-

“I’ve been teaching here for over 10 years and that was the single dumbest question I’ve ever heard come from anyone’s mouth.”

She continued the lesson without answering. I calmly stood up, packed up my stuff, and headed to the nurses office to dismiss myself from school. (We were allowed to dismiss ourself if we were 18.)

I went home, compiled all of the brutal tapes into one glorious masterpiece of insults, and headed back the next day to show the administrators. I sat down with the principal and we listened to a couple of the insults before he stopped me. He wanted more witnesses present as well as Mrs. Franks. He told me we would meet the next day where i could show him and the rest of the administrators the full tape.

I walk into school the next morning being the most nervous iv ever been for anything. I was called down to the office where i met with some board directors, the local school police officer, the principal, the vice principal and Mrs. Franks.

What follows was some of the greatest minutes of my life.

I watched as the administrators went from fed up with being in another useless meeting, to furious and speechless with some of them keeping their mouths open for the duration of the tape. I also watched Mrs. Frank go from confident and stuck up, to her realizing that she had f*cked up beyond repair.

She was publicly roasting herself in front of the most important people from the district.

The tape ended and without hesitation, the administrators looked around in astonishment and the principal turns to me and says “I think we have heard everything we need to, thank you.” And i was quietly dismissed from the room.

The final time i saw Mrs. Frank was leaving the room. I looked back and we made eye contact through her tear filled eyes as i gave the biggest most evil smile.

I returned to class the next week and Mrs. Frank was no where to be found. The story spread quickly throughout the school and i was seen as a saint. I had successfully gotten her fired and made it almost impossible for Mrs. Frank to return to her teaching career as well as cut off most of her connections she had with other teachers in the school. I had ruined her financially because no school district in the area would hire this walking piece of garbage.

If you’re reading this Mrs. Frank id like to take this moment to tell you to go f*ck yourself.


Happy 413.

My comic for the HS fan zine :’) I’ve started loving homestuck when I was the same age as the kids. Over the years I grew older than them, but now that Homestuck’s over, the kids are once again older than me (oh the irony). I’ve had a great time in the fandom, and I’ve met a lot of good people along the way so, thanks Homestuck.

Hope everyone had a good 4/13! Can’t believe Homestuck’s finally over.

(Ps: there’s more down below.)

“I grew up in Spain right after the civil war. When I was eleven I was sent to a Catholic boarding school. They fed me and sheltered me. But they only taught me religion. They were training me to be a priest. I was taught to fear God. I was taught to fear the outside world. I was taught to fear everything. I left the grounds one day when I was twenty-eight. I went to a barbershop and got my hair cut by a French woman. I had never really spoken to a woman before. She told me I was cute. That same day I bought a newspaper. It was the first time I’d ever bought something with my own money. When I returned to the school, I was changed. I had discovered freedom. I began to realize their lies and so I wasn’t useful to them anymore. A few months later I met a woman in church and fell in love. We got married and had three children. I left all of it behind, except for the fear. Sometimes I still feel very afraid for no reason. That will always be a part of me.”

Quotes from Harry Styles’ Interview

Writing for his album

“I started the album end of Feb last year for about three weeks and then had to stop for about 5 months when I went to do a movie. I came back to it in July and finished writing it in December. For a while before all I thought about it was stressing about what it was going to be. It gave me a chance to completely step away from it for a bit and have a real break. By the end of the movie, because we were swimming so much I just wanted to write songs…I think we wrote about 70 songs - we did 50 songs and ideas in Jamaica and that’s including like little ideas. Well full songs, I say there are 30 songs probably. One of the songs on the album, I wrote a few years ago.”

On his album

“I was with the guys who I was writing it with and we just wanted to make what we wanted to listen to and that has been the most fun part for me about making the whole album. In the least weird way possible, it’s my favourite album to listen to at the moment… I hope we did a good job but I really like the album so I hope people like it. I think if you put out something that you don’t stand behind and really love, then if it doesn’t go well then you could regret not doing what you wanted to do. Whereas if nothing happens with it, I love it you know so I think that’s what you should do. I think that’s been my favourite part to the overall thing is listening to the album and making all the changes – it has been fun to watch over it all.”

Writing in Jamaica

“I just wanted to not be somewhere that I’d get distracted. It was 360 of writing, you’d go home for dinner, write at the house then go back to the studio. I liked being away from everything and doing it like that.”

About his debut single

“It’s a bit weird, I feel like I’ve been hibernating for so long now and you hear it in the safety of the studio and now it’s time to give birth … it’s the song (debut single) I’m most proud of writing.”

About making it on his own

“I’ve been hibernating trying to get it all ready, that’s been fun, but I like this bit as well. I think it’s gonna be fun, it’s gonna be good. It’s not like I’m travelling on my own now, I have a band and everything and they’re amazing.”

Ed Sheeran

“I played him (Sheeran) a few songs after the album was finished. He didn’t say that he didn’t like any, but he did like one song that isn’t on the album. So I did have a bit of a minute of like hmmm no but…”

On Adele

“I’ve spoken to her a little bit, she knows one of the guys that I wrote it with (his music) a lot. But I don’t think so much advice, I just like how she does stuff. I think she leads by example, she’s the biggest, she’s amazing, she’s the best so she should be the biggest. The thing with her is she’s a different thing, she’s just good at it, I like how she does everything, it looks very nice. For my 21st she gave me one of her albums 21 and said, ‘I did some pretty cool stuff when I was 21, good luck’ and I was like, 'geez’.”

On Dating

“I haven’t dated in a long time really because I went away to do the movie then did the album so I haven’t in a while. I have a couple of candles left still though. 

Whether dating when famous is hard

“I don’t know, maybe. I feel like with all of the stuff how people date now, with all online stuff, I feel like you can do that (Google) with anyone really if you’re looking at someone’s profile before seeing them. It’s kinda the same… No, I used to (research dates), then I said I’m not going to do that anymore, it’s impossible to go in without a perception of someone and you’ve never met them and I started feeling like that was wrong and weird. I think I snore, and also I quite like routine, so I don’t know if I’m ­incredibly spontaneous.”

Cutting his hair for Dunkirk

“I felt very naked for a while. I was like yeah, I’ve gotta shave my hair off. It wasn’t a hard decision, it got made into a wig.”

Why he rarely tweets

“I don’t like saying something for the sake of it.”

Life at home and work

“The first time I went home not wearing trainers, I was in a pair of boots. Someone said, ‘What the bloody hell are they?’ I like to separate working and being at home with family.”

Staying grounded

“It’s easier in the way that I like to separate stuff from working and being at home with family and stuff. When you separate it it’s easier to see it for what it is. When you let it become everything and that’s your whole life, then it’s easy to get a bit lost in it. I’m lucky, I have amazing friends and my family’s amazing so I think they make it easier to keep the separation between the two which makes it easier for me.”

Being nervous about playing his music to others

“I think it’s nerve-racking in that I’ve only played it to like 10 people in a room. I try and not be there if I’m playing it…”

His mother and step-father’s reactions to the album

“I played the album to them the first time and there’s one song that’s got a vocal effect on it, the whole album finished then my stepdad said: ‘I’ve one question, where did you get the duck from, how did you get a duck in the studio?’ I was like: ‘That was me, thanks’. My Mum liked it which was handy. She cried a couple of times which was good, I think that was good.”

Musical Influences

“I think it’s hard to not have influencers from what you grew up listening on. I think everyone reacts differently to different types of music. I had a good range between my mum and dad… my dad listened to Fleetwood, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd and Queen. My mum was like Norah Jones and Savage Garden. There are a lot of melodies there.”

Being starstruck by other celebrities

“I remember the first time we went to an awards show in the US, we met Will Smith. It was a brief meeting – he was nice and very tall.”

Addressing the rumour about getting a sheep placenta facial

“No I’ve never had a sheep placenta facial.”

Rumours about Hobama

“I’m not allowed to talk about that.”

Rumour on taking his dates on helicopter rides

“No I’ve never done that,” Harry says, with Grimmy responding: “Not even with Barack?”

“No,“ Harry says. “It was his helicopter, haha.”

Talking about Chris Martin

“He’s lovely isn’t he? He is good at telling you to take care of yourself. I think he makes sure you are alright and is very zen. I think he is a pretty wonderful man.”

On Ronnie Wood

“Big fan, I love Ronnie Wood – I think I met him at a dinner party a few years ago and went to a couple of Stones shows…I think he is the nicest.”

Interviewing Paul McCartney for his Another Man issue

“It was amazing – his voice sounds like a song.”

Loving scented candles

“I mean I think everyone loves scented candles. But I usually take one from home if I’m travelling.”

About sprouts being the new kale

“I went two days ago. I got some spinach, eggs, OJ, milk, turkey and some brussels sprouts. Hmm what else did I buy…oh some Crème Eggs. I like putting sprouts in a curry and I like sauteing them. I think they are going to be the new kale. I met [someone] and I asked her what she did and she said ‘I’m the PR lady for Kale’ and I was like ‘good job then.”

Talking about his four nipples

“Still got them, managed to keep them. Maybe I just hide them in limited edition albums, like golden tickets. I’ll hold onto them.”

Best trait

“Best trait I don’t know, it’s weird to pick your best, shall we go with the nipples thing.”

On where not to ask him for a selfie

“I think in toilets is the weirdest one. It’s happened a couple of times… When someone tries to shake your hand right after having a wee, ‘I might wash my hands first’.”

About Liam’s son and being a potential godfather

“I spoke to Liam and he’s loving it. He said it’s going really well and everyone’s great. So I’m very happy for him. I think it’s a roll of the dice, there are a lot of people Liam has in mind. I’m not going to add any extra pressure. If it came my way I would be honoured.”

Please Reblog! GOT7 fans - don’t assume and don’t spread rumors that members are on bad terms, GOT7 members see everything what’s happening on social media. Don’t ask them if they fought on Instagram.

Jackson is aware of fans spreading rumors after he seemed upset and quiet at yesterday’s fanmeeting. Today at the fanmeeting in Perth, Australia he said:

“We met different cities, we met different people and ate different food but the energy and passion Australian people have was very memorable for us. I know sometimes it’s hard and tiring supporting us because of all the rumors and all other issues and at the end of the day we are still us and I am still Jackson. Through the highs and lows, what kept us going on and no matter how tired, we all suck it up and shut our mouths and work hard because of you guys. We want to make you proud, we’ll be back soon. Stay healthy and mentally healthy.”

Do you have any advice for young artists, who want to do comics out there?

1/ Do them on your own. The industry is unforgiving and low-paying with no benefits. The Internet has made it so easy to get noticed/paid for the work you do on your own, so take advantage! Don’t quit your day job for comics unless you know you’ve got a good amount of stability or financial cushion.

2/ Comics are a really intense exercise in time management. There is no way you can put in 100% on every single page like a single illustration; you would never meet standard schedules (unless you are just Chris Samnee levels of insanely fast). You’re going to only be able to put in 60-70% of your true potential — the trick is to get your 60-70% to be Really Good.

3/ Finishing something and putting it out there for people to see is just as much a skill to nurture and improve upon as draftsmanship, coloring, composition, etc. Give yourself deadlines and try to meet them, and try to share your work. Peer critique is how you improve, and also how you build confidence.

4/ Have a social media presence. For me, it’s Twitter. It’s how I’ve met my colleagues, friends, mentors, employers, etc. I keep it casual and friendly, but I also approach it with a business mindset: If I consistently put in the work, meaning I post one drawing a day or so, inject some personality, connect with folks and comment earnestly on their work, I will likely receive some of that back later down the line (audience growth, better friendships, more eyes on my work, etc).

5/ Don’t apologize or speak disparagingly of your work, even if you notice flaws. Chance is, most people didn’t notice it, or they it didn’t detract from the piece itself to be worth a comment. It also comes off as unprofessional.

6/ Do not undersell yourself. Here’s the Fair Page Rates info:

How We Met AU's

You found me wandering lost around an Ikea. We’re both lost and I’m getting really scared so you built us a fort and now the employees are trying to get us out of it.

I’ve lost my dog and I’ve been searching for them all day now. You found me crying on the curb and offered to help. I have no idea who you are but thank you so much for helping.

Our group had a lip sync battle and you got up there and lip synced to Sexy Back and didn’t break eye contact with me. I’m both turned on and embarrassed.

You pepper sprayed me in the face because you thought I was your creepy ex. I’m mad but then I actually looked at you and said a cheesy pick up line so now we’re just staring at each other awkwardly, but my eyes still burn please help.


- Aedion and Dorian bromance. I want that Aedion apologize to Dorian for being a jerk and I want them sitting by the fire and talking about good old days. And Dorian being like “Damn Aedion, you mocked me for eating like a lady while you looked like an actual girl with that pretty hair of yours. Half of the boys were in love with you.” Aedion would just grin

-Thirteen scaring the shit out of Chaol. He’s left his prejudices down in the Southern continent but he’s still low-key terrified of witches and Asterin likes to hide in dark hallways and when Chaol walks by she just says hello from the dark and Chaol collapses every time

- Nesryn asking Lysandra if she can borrow one of her dresses because she wants to be pretty for Chaol. When she put a dress on she’s anxious and she doesn’t feel herself at all but she’d do it for him. When Chaol sees her he tells her that she’s beautiful but that he likes her better when she’s herself, in her leather fighting gear. She never wear a dress again

- Lorcan teaching Elide how to write and read Feysand style but instead of Rhysand is the most handsome High Lord, he writes Elide is the most beautiful girl Elide is the smartest girl, Elide is the bravest girl… After a month, super nervous Lorcan gives her a paper to read and she wants to snap at him because she’s tired of reading how perfect she is but instead she’s a sobbing mess because it says Elide, will you be my wife?

- Aedion calling Gavriel “dad" for the first time, Aedion telling Gavriel he loves him for the first time. Gavriel’d play it cool but later close himself in a room and cry all night because he’s not worthy

- Gavriel and Aedion bonding time. I want that AEDION IS OBSESSED WITH GAVRIEL. Not the other way. Them going on a trips together, going on the Southern continent, to Wendlyn.. one day Aedion asks Gavriel if he’d tell him how he and his mom met. Gavriel tells him everything and all of their adventures and how she was like, what’d she liked. They’d both cry at the end.

-Manon seeing Aelin’s soap collection for the first time and being like “Aelin you’re disgusting you don’t need all that”. She’d secretly steal one and Dorian would later ask her why she smells like Aelin

- it’s Manon’s birthday tomorrow and Dorian and Abraxos fly all night to get to that place that sells the only cake Manon likes. In the morning when they get back Manon is furious and she wants to cut Dorian’s neck open because no one rides her wyvern but then Dorian shows her the cake. Something obviously got stuck into her eye that’s why she’s crying

- Vaughan and Connall being boyfriends

- Fenrys saying that he’s the fastest wolf alive. Lysandra would chuckle in a background and Fenrys would be like “Lys, you and me, outside, now”. Everyone put their bets on Lysandra, Fenrys is offended, Lysandra wins

- Evangeline being obsessed with Rowan. She wants a story a day. Her favourites are about Fenrys falling off the ship while trying to impress ladies or about Lorcan climbing a tree to get a cat down because this old man couldn’t do it himself

- Aelin is walking in a park in Terrasen and this old lady comes to her and tells her that they always knew she’s alive and that she’ll come back and that whatever she’d done, it doesn’t matter, that her people are proud of her and that they’ll never forget Evalin and Rhoe. In that moment Aelin realizes that it’s all indeed been worth it

anonymous asked:

Omg ??// those time travel fics are so good ??/ would you happen to have more recommendations?

Hi! I have gotten so many requests to update my list, but there are so many I’m just going to make a whole ’nother list! You can find my first list here!

Time Travel AU (Part 2)

Standard Deviations by JustBeHappy, Teen, 82k
Victor knew something was wrong when he woke up. Firstly, Yuuri wasn’t by his side in bed. Secondly, the wallpapers weren’t supposed to be blue. LOVE!

News Travels Fast by TheSecretUchiha, Gen, 1.3k
In which time travel happened but there is no mention of time travel and Viktor and Yuuri like to surprise people, especially reporters. THIS IS SO GOOD

Turn Back the Clock by IronScript, Teen, 52k (WIP)
When Yuuri and Viktor wake up over thirty years in the past, they don’t know what to do. Does the other remember? Luckily that particular question is quickly answered and they can relax slightly, but what about afterwards? Viktor was brought back to right before his first Olympics, and Yuuri isn’t even old enough to compete in Seniors’! Great fic!

The Switch by BoredPerson69, Teen, 5.3k
The Switch was a true mystery to science. Nobody knew how or why it happened, it just did. Soulmate AU!

Katsuki Yuuri Solemnly Swears That Time-Travel/Alternate Universe Bullshit Did Not Happen With The Intent to Piss Off Yuri Plisetsky by Eldestmiddle, Teen, 20k (WIP)
When Yuuri wakes up, a sweet-faced twelve-year-old, he bursts into tears and his mother calls him in sick to school. He spends a day in bed, crying and pinching himself until he can really believe that he’s really doing all this over again. Then he starts laughing because he’s really doing all this over again. It feels like it should be easier but when he tallies up, the losses are almost too much to bear. WOW!

Maelstrom by feelslikefire, Explicit, 43k
Victor Nikiforov is poised to win gold in his fifth consecutive Grand Prix Final. He has the world at his feet, is unparalleled in the sport–right up until a snowstorm blows into Sochi, and he finds himself repeating the same day over and over and over. He stumbles over Yuuri Katsuki, and everything changes. Time loop AU! One of my all-time favourite fics!

And I Will Try to Fix You by Dawn on ICE (Dawn_Blossom), Teen, 19k
16 year old Victor Nikiforov may be lonely, but he isn’t sure how getting thrust into the future to live with his older self and his older self’s fiancé is going to help anything. Oh, and the 16 year old version of his older self’s fiancé is there, too. Thumbs up!

of whispering lights and empty ice rinks by nauti, Gen, 12k
One would think that everything would calm down after Yuuri won the Onsen on Ice event. It was supposed to be his year; he was going to be training with his long time idol turned coach and he was back in Japan with his family. Everything was looking up for Katsuki Yuuri. That is, until a stranger that looks exactly like him, but older appears in the middle of the rink after a bright flash of light. SUCH a great fic!

counterclockwise by viktyuuri (Empress_Arisu), Teen, 4.9k (WIP)
Life after retirement, Yuuri thinks, is quite a nice change of pace. Although, not so much when he finds himself thrust back into the past. In which married husbands Viktor and Yuuri somehow end up 5 years in the past without knowing how or why. I love Victor in this asjhdlsjflk

Those Second Thoughts You Asked For by akisazame, Teen, 7.1k
The first time Victor skips backwards in time, he is fourteen years old. Highly recommend!

a great desire to love by lily_winterwood, Teen, 21k
For some strange, inexplicable, fantastic reason, Yuuri Katsuki and Viktor Nikiforov are trading places.  THE GREATEST Kimi no Na wa AU!!!!

it’s not a side effect of the champagne, i am thinking it must be love by lostincostco, Teen, 2.5k
Somehow, Yuuri gets the distinct feeling he’s being punished for something. LOL I LOVE THIS

Future Self by fishydip, Gen, 5.2k
Soulmates AU where one day, at random you wake up in your own body, except in the future after you have already met and fallen in love with your soulmate. you get a random amount of time to spend as your future self to learn more about them. Another great soulmate/time travel AU!

Stammi Vicino by Mairieux, Teen, 2.5k
Katsuki Yuuri, unable to sleep due to being wracked with nerves and anxiety, finally passes out in his hotel room the night before his first grand prix final. And when he wakes up? He has no idea why he’s suddenly sleeping so close to a mop of silver hair. So cute!

A Minute or a Year by I_have_problems, Teen, 8.7k (WIP)
One minute Yuuri and Viktor are enjoying their offseason while planning their wedding the next both of them are thrown three years into the past and are left to find one another again. Angsty but worth it!!

Tiger Stripes and Smartphones by vivi1138, Teen, 24k
In the glorious year 2004, the famous Victor Nikiforov owns a Nokia3510 and is very proud to be the only one at school who got rid of his monochrome mobile phone. So, where is his precious device when he wakes up in an unfamiliar room and finds an expensive smartphone filled with pictures of someone who looks exactly like him… but older? Rec’d by a follower!
