this would go faster if that would work

Update
  • Hi everyone, I've been getting a lot of messages, since March actually, regarding chapters that had been translated already. Mostly the later chapters. So I'm going to address it here. I've been asked to skip those chapters which honestly is a reasonable request considering that it would move the story along a lot faster. But, I've never considered doing that since I personally want to have all the chapters translated in my own words and of the translators I work with. Also, since I'm working on the website for the translations, it would be better for me to have all the chapters at hand so I can upload it in one spot so we all don't have to go searching for it. Since, honestly, it a hassle searching hahaha٩(๑❛ワ❛๑)و
  • On another note, chapter 179 will be up Wed night

Peter Maximoff and Kurt Wagner: Why They’d be CUTE AS HELL Together

Ok, ok, I realize it’s a rarepair.  But hear me out.

  • Kurt’s teleportation is a really good counter to Peter’s speed.  Like, Peter can go as fast as he wants but Kurt’s just gonna be gone before he gets there.  They would have epic games of tag.  New students would watch in slightly concerned awe, especially when Peter manages to grab Kurt’s tail just before he teleports to the roof.  Charles is impressed because Kurt’s teleporting reflexes have never been better and someone Peter is managing to go even faster???
  • Kurt’s first introduction to American music was some earsplitting metal that Scott was listening to while working on his motorcycle and having an Angstfest.  Peter reassures him that there is much better music out there and they spend a whole day just going through Peter’s collection of records and tapes.
  • They watch soccer together.  Kurt’s way more into it than Peter (Alles für Deutschland!  Alles für Deutschland!) but Peter enjoys rooting for the opposing and/or losing team just to bug Kurt.  They both shit all over England, much to Charles’ disappointment.
  • Peter, rebel that he is, goes up to Canada to steal contraband Kinder Eggs for Kurt because a) it’s Kurt’s favorite candy and b) it’s a chocolate egg with a surprise toy inside how cool is that what asshole made these illegal in America.
  • Look they’d just be really cute ok.

  • We could call the ship nightsilver
New Paper Mario on Dolphin

As you might have guessed, I have decided to port my New Paper Mario texture pack onto the Dolphin emulator. (Paper Mario on a dolphin, get it?)
I have thought about this for quite a long time but now I have decided that Dolphin is better suited for the task than N64 emulators. Dolphin still does have some problems, but at least it is still actively being developed.

So, what does this mean?
-Well, unfortunately it means a lot of work since I have to rename practically every texture for it to work with Dolphin.
-However, it also means that once I’m again at the same state of texturing, it will go much faster.
-And it also means that I now have more motivation than ever, now that it’s actually possible for me to finish the pack.


Now… it would be great if some people would like to help me. This time, it’s mainly about playing through the game on Dolphin and dumping and sorting all the textures so I can just focus on retexturing. 
So, if you have any experience with Dolphin and how it handles high-res texture packs and would like to help me, send me an email at: npm at nelde dot ch (preferably with the email address that is connected to Dropbox) and I will add you to a Dropbox folder where you can contribute.
I appreciate your help, but please only write if you have some experience
Thanks!

markedpatches  asked:

So how does ageing work? Like a dog grows up and becomes an adult much faster than a human and they also don't live much longer then about 10-20 years. So do they go by human years and you could see a dog that's in their 70s? Would they be a puppy for ten years?

Yes, you are right! ;D It´s the human lifespan that steers the boat. No special benefits to whales or tortoise. 

And who would say no to a child who stays a puppy for ca 10 years??? (* w *)

Setsuna/Felicia C-S supports

[These two are both beautiful calamities (and they’re voiced by the same person, go figure). I would think that these two would get up to crazy kitchen antics so that’s the angle I took. I made some references to previous supports so sorry if it feels like I’m reusing an idea. I had a lot of fun writing this and finished it faster than I typically do, so hope you like it~]

C support:

Felicia: Yes, I finally got the laundry done!

I’ve worked up an appetite. Hopefully I can get a snack from the mess hall.

Hm?

Setsuna: Hello there.

Felicia: Oh, Setsuna! What are you doing there?

Setsuna: I was making something to eat.

I don’t think it’s going well, though. It’s been smoking for a bit…

I also don’t think it’s supposed to catch fire.

Felicia: Waaah! We have to put out the fire!

I’ll use my ice! Grab some water, please.

Setsuna: Ok…

*screen transition*

Felicia: Phew…

I’m glad my nerves didn’t get me.

Unfortunately, I knew how to deal with that from experience…

Setsuna: Sorry about that. That hasn’t happened in a few months.

I knew I wasn’t the best at cooking…I should practice more.

Felicia: I’d help you but I’m not much better than you.

It’d be nice if we could learn together but we would need someone who could cook to help.

Setsuna: You’ll help me learn, Felicia?

Felicia: That’s not–

Setsuna: You’re very nice. Can we meet later?

I have to report to Lady Hinoka.

Felicia: Setsuna, that’s not what I–

Setsuna: Thank you. I’ll see you later.

*Setsuna leaves*

Felicia: Oh no. I don’t think I can get out of this.

Maybe it won’t be so bad?

…I feel like I’m reassuring myself.

B support:

Setsuna: What should I learn how to make…?

I guess tea would be a good place to start.

I think most retainers know how to make tea…

Felicia: There you are. I wasn’t sure when you would come.

Setsuna: Hi, Felicia.

Can we start with tea? I’ve seen you carry that before.

Sometimes you break it, but you always make enough to get more.

I wish I thought of that. I should make a bunch.

Felicia: Oh, sure. I’m not too good at it, honestly.

But I’ve made some good batches before, so maybe we’ll be lucky!

Are you ready to learn?

Setsuna: Yes, ma’am.

*screen transition*

Felicia: Wow…

We finally got a full brew.

Is your hand ok?

Setsuna: The ice helps. Thank you, Felicia.

Felicia: You’re very welcome. I’m glad it’s working.

Let’s taste your tea, Setsuna.

…Oh.

Setsuna: Not good, huh?

Felicia: I mean, if you added some sugar or something I could definitely drink it.

But as is…

Sorry, Setsuna. You tried so hard.

You’ll get good at it if you keep practicing!

Setsuna: Sorry, Felicia.

I’ve never really…

Had to be good at anything before.

Felicia: Huh? Really?

Setsuna: Yeah, it’s how I was raised…

I’ll still try to learn.

Will you still teach me something?

Felicia: I can try.

I’m only pretty good at Nohrian cuisine though.

Is…is that ok?

Setsuna: I would love to.

It sounds fun. I can’t wait.

Felicia: Ok! We can meet tomorrow!

A support:

Felicia: Ok, I have the ingredients.

Setsuna, are you ready?

Setsuna: I think so.

I feel happy about this.

Felicia: I do too!

Let’s try this together.

*screen transition*

Setsuna: And top it off like that…

I think. You did that, right?

Felicia: I did. We can taste it now.

It’s good!

Ours had different ingredients but it was pretty good both times.

I’m happy for you, Setsuna!

Setsuna: Heehee. We did it together.

Felicia: It was only sandwiches, but all the ingredients were supposed to go in there.

Although you did try to put flour in there, but we fixed that.

Setsuna: Thanks for not giving up on me…

It made me really happy.

People get frustrated but you kept trying.

I like that about you, Felicia…

Felicia: Haha, really?

I’m glad you kept trying.

No one asks me to teach them things.

Setsuna: You keep trying even when you mess up.

I think that’s really…what’s the word?

Admirable. That’s it.

More people should be like you.

Felicia: Wow, it’s not often I hear that.

You’re very nice, Setsuna.

Setsuna: You too.

Can you teach me more stuff today?

Felicia: I would be super happy to!

Now we can try the stove again.

Setsuna: Yaay….

S support:

Felicia: Ok, we may have burned a few…

Dozen.

But the one that didn’t burn tasted pretty ok!

Someone’s going to be mad we used so much batter…

Setsuna: I hope not…

But I like making…panjacks.

Felicia: …We’ll just call them pancakes.

We’re getting it down, so maybe we can finally make a stack.

Setsuna: I’m excited…

Felicia: To think, originally we weren’t going to do this.

Who knew being misheard would lead to such a valuable experience.

Setsuna: Did I…not hear you right?

I didn’t mean to drag you into this.

Sorry, Felicia. I can go.

Felicia: What, no! Please wait, Setsuna!

Setsuna: Ok, waiting.

Felicia: You did mishear me the first time, but if I didn’t want to go I wouldn’t have come.

Well, I’m not that mean. I’d tell you when I saw you.

When we met though, I felt really happy.

It was nice to learn with someone who has the same problem as me.

I think we’re growing together.

Setsuna: Oh yeah…

I hear that that’s a good thing.

Doesn’t that mean we’ll get better the more we’re together?

Felicia: Um, yes, I would think so.

Setsuna: Oh. That’s good.

Then I’ve got an idea.

We should stay together forever.

Felicia: Wha— Setsuna?

Setsuna: If you don’t want to, that’s ok…

Felicia: No, it is. It makes perfect sense.

I would love to stay with you forever.

It’s the best idea I’ve ever heard.

Setsuna: Yay, I’m so happy…

We should bake a cake to celebrate.

Felicia: Maybe that’s not such a good idea…

EXO (12) React to the way You study Korean

D.O.: He would find it cute how hard you were trying to learn Korean and would love how dedicated you were to it. Once he noticed you were using Korean kid’s books, he wouldn’t question your method, but might chuckle at how it looked. He wouldn’t want to make you feel embarrassed though with how you studied so instead he would offer to help. “If you have any questions you can ask me.”

Originally posted by missdyoo

Chanyeol: Once he noticed your study methods, he would claim he could teach you far better than any children’s books.He would be the one to insist that you go on study dates so he could help you learn ‘faster’.  When really it would just be an excuse to go out for ice cream with you. “You are doing so well~! See?! These study dates are working!” He’d say smiling as he ate his ice cream happily.

Baekhyun: When he saw you struggling to pronounce certain words, he would offer to help you sound them out. In the process of his help, you would end up mispronouncing a word and cussing accidentally, causing his face to turn red and him to laugh awkwardly. Noticing you were embarrassed, he would tell you it was okay. “Don’t worry! You are doing well, you just need to pronounce it like this-” He would want to help you as much as he could.

Xiumin: He would notice you studying from your books and wouldn’t say much about it, but he would tell you to ask him questions. “The only way to get better is to practice!” He would say and push you to ask him questions in Korean to challenge yourself. Every time you got a phrase correct, he would be proud of the progress you were making in such a short amount of time. “Good! Now let’s try something a little more difficult.”

Originally posted by secrethideoutme

Lay: After noticing your study materials, he would try and give you more study tools that he would think might be of more use to you. “These textbooks go into more depth,” he would explain and give you books filled with basic Korean and study techniques. He would even show you how he studied Korean. “I’ll help try to answer questions you have. I’m here for you.”

Originally posted by sehun8gfat

Suho: Being the mother of EXO as it was, he would be coming up with a study schedule for you to help you. “Once you have finished studying in those books, I’ll get you some more advanced books.” He would say, understanding that you have to start with these easier concepts. Once you’ve gotten farther along in your studying he would gush, “I’m so proud of how hard you are working!” He’d end up giving you a bear hug.

Originally posted by sorenkingsley

Sehun: When he saw what you were studying he would laugh lightly, but noticing your embarrassed expression his laughter would die down, “I’m sorry I didn’t mean to laugh. It is just kind of funny to see someone your age study a book like that.” He would say, feeling bad that he had made you uncomfortable. “If you need help, let me know.” He’d say before leaving you to your studying.

Originally posted by exoissimo

Kai: When he walked in on you studying, you would expect him to look at your books and laugh, but instead he would look over your shoulder at what you were reading. “Do you need help with anything?” He would ask curiously and sit down beside you. “Don’t feel awkward about asking questions, I’m here to help!” He would say when he noticed you fiddling with the book’s pages nervously.

Originally posted by jonginization

Chen: He’d be excited to see you studying Korean regardless of the methods that you were using. He would also take this as an opportunity to quiz you on what you have learned so far. He’d point to a word or phrase in the book and ask you what it was. When you answered he would be proud of your hard work. “I’m so glad that you are learning! You are doing so well~!”

Originally posted by chwannie

Tao: When he walked in on you busy studying, he wouldn’t think anything of what you were reading until you acted awkward about him seeing you studying. Once he noticed the type of book you were studying from he would chuckle lightly. “Don’t worry about it, you have to start from somewhere. It’ll get easier,” he would say as if he knew what you were thinking.

Originally posted by lil-duckling

Luhan: He would overhear you practicing reading from the book and would walk in on you, surprising you. He wouldn’t pay much attention to the fact that it was a Korean kid’s book, and he would be more interested in the fact that you were learning Korean. “You can pronounce these words better than I can!” He would exclaim, encouraging you to keep up the studying.

Originally posted by harlysquad

Kris: After seeing the type of Korean books you were studying, he would tease you before trying to show off his Korean skills. Except for… he would mess up his words, causing you to laugh at him. He’d look at you before laughing as well. “Even the best of us mess up sometimes,” he would say before adding, “You are doing well, I think you’ll end up speaking Korean better than me.”

“Do you want to run to the dollar store?”

To say that potty training Aria wasn’t going well would be an understatement.

Jasmine was convinced that no matter how many books she read it wasn’t enough, and Anthony wasn’t sure what else to do when it came to it, normally just following his wife’s lead.

Against their better judgement they had decided to offer prizes as incentives, praying that it would help her want to potty train and they could be over this drama so much faster, and onto the next phase of life. Jasmine and Anthony were both more than ready to push past this, at this point not caring what it took to make it work.

When Aria had finally started responding to the incentives the two of them couldn’t keep up with them all, Jasmine making her way down the hall to find her husband.

“We have no more prizes for Ari, but she used her toilet again,” She panicked, Anthony standing up from where he had been working on music, walking towards his wife.

“Do you want to run to the dollar store?” He questioned, grabbing his wallet out of his back pocket. She quickly shook her head, looking back up to her husband.

“Do you mind going? I’m going to give her a bath now so we can put her to bed after,” She explained, relieved when her husband nodded. “Just get her one of those little princess dolls or some candy or something. Nothing too big, we’re already spoiling this child too much.” Anthony only laughs at his wife’s statement, leaning down to kiss her quickly.

“I’ll be back soon. Just tell her that Daddy is bringing her a prize,” He smiles as he walks to grab his coat, Jasmine nodding.

“When do we finish with this whole prize thing?” Anthony questions as he turns back to find his shoes, hearing Jasmine’s laugh behind him.

“Not much longer, I think she’s finally starting to get it,” She smiles, “But we’re going to have a brat on our hands when sh realizes she doesn’t get a prize every single time,” She reminds him, Anthony just rolling his eyes.

While ideally they wouldn’t have done the prize system in the first place both of them know that it was the easiest and most efficient way to do things, realizing that it had worked. They just hoped that taking away the prizes didn’t cause major drama, not wanting to deal with the tantrums that were going to come with it.

@feelscmething

after working a double at the hospital, serena wasn’t thrilled to receive a text from her brother explaining that he was throwing a party at his house. as she was sending him a reply about how she would sleep in an on call room she read “ go to evans, you have a key. “ if it wasn’t her day off the next two days, serena would have taken her usual bed. driving to the blondes apartment was faster than going home, she pulled into a spot before walking into the familiar building. she unlocked the door slowly and smiled as she saw the puppy in the crate. “ hi angel! “ she cooed, kneeling down and letting him free. the least the girl could do was take care of the animal she loved. she made a pot of coffee, and turned on 13 going on 30, something she watched a billion times but could never get enough of. even with the caffeinated drink, serena couldn’t keep her eyes open, it was like a child waiting up on new years eve who just couldn’t make it until midnight. as the dog jumped up onto the small of serena’s back, she fell asleep peacefully with her fae buried into the pillow of evan’s couch.  

Although Sasuke is very attentive and astute, I honestly don’t think he would be the first to realize that Sakura is pregnant. I mean, she’s a medic and loves children so I have no doubt she’s worked with a lot of pregnant women. I think she would have noticed the signs before anyone since it is her body.

She would miss her period first and try to wait it out first but then she would be a lot more tired than normal. She would run low on Chakra a lot faster than normal. Like she’d be working on a patient and find she ran out of energy very quickly. With that missed period in mind she would go take a test immediately.

I really like the thought of Sasuke being surprised and then his stoicism would break because finally he has a family with the person who has cared for him from the beginning.

A Brief Rant About People Writing Chrisse

I’m really tired of fanfictions and art work that always depict them with Clarisse yelling at or hitting Chris.

I don’t think she would ever do that.

I think she would love and respect Chris so much that she would never even consider something like that.

Give me a Chris and Clarisse that never even wrestle or spar together, because they don’t want to hurt each other. But they go running together. And Chris knows she hates when people take it easy on her. So he runs as fast as he can, because he’s much faster than her, knowing, that if he keeps it up, one day she’ll catch up.

I want a Chris and Clarisse that don’t argue, but a Chris that knows just what still jokes, silly faces, and silly dances he needs to do to get her laugh.

I want a Clarisse that knows just the right tone of voice to convince him that yes, he is here, yes this is real, and yes he is safe.

I want a Chris that knows she doesn’t like to hold hands or kiss in pubic, so he doesn’t kiss her, no matter how much he wants to.

I want a Clarisse who knows as soon as their apartment door close, she’s going to kiss him until they can’t breath, because she knows just how badly he’s wanted to do that all night.

I want a couple that balances each other out in the best way, a coupe that understands each other, and a couple that can just be easy with each other.

(also @captious-carnation but tell me if you don’t want me to tag you and I’ll remove it!!!)

Yet another strike hit her, knocking Arturia to the ground with a shout of anger.

Can’t you land one hit, Wart?” The mocking voice of her brother stung her more than the hit of his wooden sword did. And to top it all off, he was using that stupid nickname again… Was it to anger her? To get her to be more reckless?

If so, it worked.

She watched him step forward, blade raised for attack. She wasn’t going to let him hit her with this one. She would be faster! Her size would come in handy for once! With no second thought, she jumped up and leapt forward, her sword raised–And right into Kay’s trap.

She was nearly knocked unconscious as she felt the hilt smash into her face.

“Kay?!” It was difficult for her to shout his name rather than scream out in pain, but she wouldn’t allow him to have that victory, no matter how small it was. “Th-That’s unfair! It’s uncalled for!” She brought a hand to her face, touching it tenderly. Looking down at her gauntlet, she could see small drops of blood. Perhaps a bloody nose? She wasn’t going to stop and find out now.

Nobody ever said that all fights are fair.” There was no sympathy in his voice, and he wasted no time in charging forward for another attack. “I’m teaching you valuable lessons that my old man will not.

She hardly had enough time to react, only managing to bring her sword up to barely block his attack. It was now clear to her that she wouldn’t get anywhere with the honorable rules of battle… She would have to play by his book, and she could already think of a plan.

Tightening the grip on her sword she swung it back, preparing herself. With a leap, she charged forward at her brother, letting out a cry as she did. As soon as she reached him she swung–

But at his sword, rather than him. She heard a snap as their blades made contact, and felt her sword grow lighter in her hands. Looking at the blades, her fears were confirmed as she saw hers in two pieces. But that was of no matter now. It clearly caught him off guard, and she watched as he tried to counter her move. Before he could do so, she moved to her next plan of action. Ducking underneath his arms, she lifted a leg–

And kicked him as hard as she could in the gut.

She heard a shout and she quickly jumped back, not wanting to get hit once more. Certain she was safe, she watched him while panting, trying to recover her own breath. She watched him open his mouth to speak, and was expecting backlash, but found herself surprised instead.

A… Decent hit. But not good enough.” Dropping his sword, Kay staggered back for a moment, letting out a few harsh coughs. Straightening up, he then turned around and began to walk away. “Nothing changes, though. I still win as usual.” Pausing for a moment, he turned to look at her, still lying on the ground with her now-broken sword clutched tightly in her hands.

Keep up your good work and you might actually stand a chance against me.” He turned around once more walking off, muttering out loud. “I’ll look forward to it.

The comment was not unheard by the girl who now held a hand up to her nose no longer really conscious, or caring for that matter, about the bleeding. Despite all that had happened, there was a grin slowly growing on her face.

“I’ll look forward to it too, big brother.”

She’d just have to do something about these minor injuries for now, lest Sir Ector give her and Kay an earful for it.


“Hmm… It’s a bit strange to smile at such a memory… Isn’t it?” She wasn’t exactly sure why it made her so happy herself. It wasn’t as though she won.

Maybe it was just the praise from Kay…

It was among the first she had gotten from her big brother, after all.

Keep Your Eyes On Me: Ch1- Steroline Fanfic

A/N: this was a request from Twitter! It’s set after the FlashForward in 7x09 :) let me know what you think and enjoy!

“I’m coming with you.”

“She already has two people that I care about. I’m not going to let her have a third.”

With a quick kiss and thoughts racing through his head faster than they ever had before, Stefan drove away. She had Caroline and Damon. The two people he cared most about and the two who the hunter knew would draw him out the quickest. It worked.

Everything was different ever since Caroline had the twins, leaving Stefan and her alone, confused and praying that they would survive the upcoming events. Stefan knew just how much Caroline hated him. He knew how much he had hurt her, but what she didn’t know is why he had to leave. If there was one thing that he was going to tell her when he saw her again, that was going to be it. But first he had to get her back, no matter how much she didn’t want to see him.

Stefan drove quicker than he ever had before. The trunk was packed with every possible weapon that could be used against a vengeful vampire from hell, including Vervain-laced bullets, Vervain ropes, Vervain grenades and just about everything else that could have Vervain on it. He was prepared. This would be the end of Hanna’s domination over Stefan’s life.
He pulled up into the parking lot of Caroline’s news station and quickly gathered all of the necessary supplies to conquer what laid ahead. Even though Hanna needed to be killed once and for all, the most important thing right now was to get Damon and Caroline back, by whatever means necessary.

Stefan had called Bonnie and Enzo to tell them his plan. This way, Bonnie and Enzo could come get Damon and take him somewhere safe and secluded, so Caroline and Damon would be separated and Hanna wouldn’t have an opportunity to hurt both of them at once. By keeping them apart, they were damaging Hanna’s plan.

Stefan got a text from Bonnie saying they were waiting outside. It was time. Stefan crept inside the back door of the facility with a Vervain grenade in his hand and a loaded gun of Vervain-laced bullets in the other. There was complete and utter silence minus his own footsteps and the sound of his heart racing. Everything was dark, leaving the possibility of something or someone to jump out at any time and pounce on Stefan. After everything the three of them had been through, Stefan wasn’t going to let himself get killed while Caroline and Damon were still in danger.

A slight groan broke the complete and utter silence of the darkness that enveloped Stefan’s surroundings. Damon. Stefan walked carefully towards his brother’s body in the chair sat behind the news desk. He was chained up and drained of blood, clearly unable to move.

“Damon? Hey, stay with me.”

“Stefan?” Damon asked weakly, before falling into another unconscious state.

Stefan was just starting to break the chains that were keeping Damon hostage when he heard a familiar voice from behind him. A voice he had missed for a long time.

“I see you’ve found your brother. It’s a shame he couldn’t seem to stay awake long enough to help you kill me-again.”

Stefan froze. It was Lily. He blinked, making sure he was seeing things clearly.

“How is this happening? You’re dead, I saw you die. We all did.” The brunette circled around him as Stefan stood guard in front of his older brother.

“Do you really think it’s that simple, Stefan? You actually think I’m your mother?”

Stefan froze. The stone.
He pulled a stake out of his sleeve discreetly, then threw it as fast as he could at his look-alike-mother’s neck. She fell to the ground screaming, but to make sure she was one hundred percent immobile, he threw a Vervain grenade at her, making her burst up in flames. Problem solved. Stefan had no time to waste. Caroline was yet to be found.

Stefan quickly untied a still unconscious Damon from the chair and sped him out of the facility to Bonnie and Enzo’s car.

“He has werewolf venom in his system. If we don’t do something soon he’s dead.”

“I’ll look for a spell, we’ll figure it out.” Bonnie said while helping Stefan lay Damon in the back seat.

“Thank you,” Stefan spoke quickly. He shut the door behind him and was about to go back inside when he heard a last request from Bonnie.

“Hey, Stefan?”
The youngest Salvatore turned around to face the Bennett witch.

“Get her out. Safely.”

Stefan nodded and hurried back inside through the back door. Once again, there was silence. That is, until he saw Caroline’s face appear on the TV’s in the main news room. There was blood on the side of her face, running down to her collar bone as she pleaded for mercy. Someone was torturing her. He couldn’t tell who it was, but in a black hoodie they leaned over the back of the chair she was sitting in and poured Vervain onto her face, making the blond cry helplessly with piercing shrieks.

Stefan felt like a stake had just been driven through his heart. He wasn’t going to watch this any longer. He raced to each and every room, opening it to find each one completely empty. He was feeling hopeless, wondering if she wasn’t even at the news station any more. Until he heard a blood-curdling scream from the room at the end of the hall. The only room he had yet to check.

Stefan raced to the end of the hall with a weapon ready and busted open the door with all his strength. There she was. Covered in blood with Vervain scars from head to toe. Tears were streaming down her face when she looked up to see Stefan standing in the doorway. He almost melted when Caroline’s eyes met his. A flood of emotions roared through each of them in that instance. The sorrow and the guilt had never been more prevalent…but most of all Stefan knew he had never seen Caroline weaker that she was right now.

A voice awoke the two from their reuniting moment.

“So I see my plan worked,” the hooded torturer spoke, as she removed her hood to reveal that she was the hunter. Hanna. Just who Stefan had expected.

Stefan and Hanna met in hell, after Stefan had been stabbed with the knife by Julian. Stefan found out when he went through one of his ripper phases, he murdered Hanna’s family. Then she was turned by one of the Originals a few days later. He knew how much Hanna hated him, but he also knew her story. He knew that deep down, she was redeemable. She wasn’t pure evil. However, he was more than ready to kill her if she laid one more finger on Caroline.

“Let her go,” Stefan spoke immediately, a gun pointed in Hanna’s direction.

The hunter laughed. “Oh, now why would I do that?”

“Because you’ve got me. Your plan worked.” Stefan laid his gun down on the ground to show Hanna that he wouldn’t hurt her if she let Caroline go.

“Because I’m the one you want, not her. She doesn’t deserve this.”

“Really? She doesn’t deserve to die after loving the most disgusting creature that’s ever walked this earth? Hm?” Hanna was now dragging a knife along the side of Caroline’s face. The blonde’s eyes shut from fear. Stefan stepped closer and slowly reached for another gun out of his back pocket as Hanna was turned around, unable to see Stefan’s actions.

“She doesn’t deserve to die after loving the man who killed my family?” She made a long, deep cut from Caroline’s shoulder down to her wrist, making Caroline scream at the top of her lungs.

“Who killed my husband?” Hanna yelled angrily, gearing up to stab Caroline in the stomach, when Stefan raced in front of her and pushed Hanna against the wall, holding that knife to her neck.

“I’m sorry. Truly, I am. But I’m not going to let you make the same mistake I did. No matter how much I want to see you dead. No one should have to live knowing that they killed someone who was loved.”

Hanna looked down, suddenly seeming like she was sorry. Maybe even sad. “Just let her go,” Stefan whispered, slowly lowering the knife. Hanna sighed and closed her eyes, looking up at Stefan with a regretful look. That’s the look that told Stefan she wasn’t a totally terrible person.

“You’re right. I’m sorry.” She responded, walking over to the back of Caroline’s chair to untie the Vervain covered ropes. However, with a motion faster than Stefan could’ve responded to, Hanna stabbed Caroline with a Vervain-covered stake through the back of the chair, and Stefan quickly shot the huntress multiple times in the chest with the gun as she fell to the ground. She wasn’t dead, since she was a vampire, but extremely unconscious.

Caroline was fading from grey to flesh-colored and back to grey again. The stake had barely touched her heart, but was still piercing it. Her chest started bleeding and Stefan quickly untied her from the chair, laying her down on the ground. She was screaming and crying from the pain, breaking Stefan’s heart into a million pieces.

“Shhh, shhh. It’s okay, I’m gonna get it out, just keep your eyes open.” He could see Caroline fading towards death, so much so that he was afraid if she shut her eyes, he would lose her.

“Can you do that?” Stefan asked as he saw Caroline wince in pain and shut her eyes. Her neck started to turn grey.

She was almost gone. Stefan felt his eyes start to tear up. “Hey, hey, Caroline.” He moved one hand up to her cheek and wiped away a tear. Stefan paused, caressing the side of her face with his thumb- he knew this used to soothe her. Their eyes met and instantly Caroline felt herself calm down.

“Just keep your eyes on me.” The blond let another tear fall down her cheek. “Okay?” He whispered. Caroline nodded, still crying. Stefan took a deep breath and pulled the stake out of her chest, making Caroline let out the most piercing, painful scream Stefan had ever heard.

The stake was gone, but so was Caroline.

Her breathing got quiet and her eyes shut.

NaKniCroMo Ideas!?

(Don’t know what NaKniCroMo is? Check it out here!)

Okay, it’s been a while since the start of this idea and I haven’t given many updates since then (mostly because I haven’t gotten any new things to update you on :P)

March is getting closer faster than I anticipated. :P I’ve got a few ideas in the works. As always I’d love to hear your opinions or any other ideas you have!

1) Setting up a Discord! I’m thinking it would be cool to have a discord set up for everyone to hang out in! There would be a few different places to post things and maybe even a voice chat or not (I’m unsure on this, let me know if anyone has thoughts on this) I would also require mods for this. The discord would probably go active in January or February.

2) Stitch Markers or Something? I think it would be really cool to offer stitch markers or keychains to participants! This might be a huge reach/stretch goal, but as always, if you have thoughts, let me know!

3) Official Instagram! This one technically already exists, but I haven’t posted anything yet. I’m hoping to reach out to people with this and even share people’s work!

Any other ideas? Feel free to reply or send me an ask or a message either here or on my regular blog!

As always reblogs are super helpful for getting the word out!! :D

Drabble Games #27: “I’m pregnant.” (Sam x reader)

Requested by oh-my-hecky-padalecki. Hope you enjoy it! XOXO

“You okay?” Sam asked through the bathroom door.

           “I’m fine, Sam. Just give me a minute!” You tried not to sound irritated. Sam was just concerned about you. You were sure he had heard you get sick again this morning. That would make it the fourth morning in a row you had woken up nauseated. Yesterday, you had a feeling about why you were sick and bought a pregnancy test. You would know for sure in just under a minute.

           You stared at your phone, silently willing it to count down faster, but once it was time to see the result, you froze. Whatever the test said, your life was going to change. If you were pregnant, you were going to have to tell Sam. Hunters and parents at the same time? You weren’t sure how that was going to work. It was too complicated, and you dreaded the thought of his reaction. But if you weren’t pregnant…you had to admit, now that the idea of Sam’s baby was in your head, you would be a little disappointed.

           You took a deep breath and forced yourself to look. It was positive. Your mind went blank.

           After a few minutes, you became aware that Sam was knocking loudly on the bathroom door.

           “Okay, you aren’t answering me, so I’m coming in.”

           The door opened and Sam barged in, sighing a breath of relief to see you unharmed, sitting on the edge of the tub. When he took in the expression on your face, he knelt in front of you.

           “What is it, babe?” His voice was soft and full of worry.

           You didn’t speak, just held the pregnancy test up.

           Sam didn’t need to look at the test. His face went as blank as yours. You couldn’t both freak out at the same time, and your instincts snapped you out of it.

           “Sam, I know we didn’t plan this, but…”

           Sam cut you off with a kiss, bruising your lips with his in his excitement.

           He pulled back and looked at you. “Really? We’re going to have a baby?” His hazel eyes were shining.

           “You’re happy?” you asked, hoping against hope.

           “Happy? This may be the happiest I’ve ever been!” He rested a hand on my stomach. “A baby…” he murmured, his voice filled with awe.

           Tears formed in your eyes as your future flashed through your mind. You pictured Sam freaking out while driving you to the hospital, watching Sam nap with the baby resting on his chest, teaching him or her how to ride a bike, having family movie nights, Dean eventually teaching him or her how to drive…

           You brushed Sam’s long hair out of his face and kissed his forehead as he continued to stare at your stomach in wonder.

           “I love you,” you whispered.

           “I love you, too,” Sam responded, his lips finding yours.

Imagine #137 Make a choice (Pt.6)

When I woke up the next morning, I felt much better than the previous days. Maybe, because I knew I had Rafinha just for myself or just because it was a nice sunny day.

I looked at my phone, but no texts. I was a little bit disappointed, because I did hope Rafinha would text me, but again it was only 7am.

I went to get ready to work and then made my way to the hospital. When I walked in our office, no one was there yet. I was usually the last one to come, but today I was faster getting ready, not complaining about how I would rather stay in bed.

I changed in my uniform and then finally my two colleagues walked inside.

“Morning!” I smiled.

“What is going on? Why are you here already?” one of the asked confused, joking with me.

“Well I woke up early today and here I am.”

“She totally had some nice sex, that’s it.” The other one said while we laughed.

“As I said, I just woke up early to this sunny day.”

“Who was it?”

“Oh my God. I did not have sex.” I said just when the doctor walked inside and looked at me surprised about what we were talking. He then decided to go back to his own office and closed the door, while the three of us laughed.

“Well if you say so.” She finally gave up.

Then we all went to work, I loved helping people. It was nice, because I had to spent time with our patients many times a week so I get to know them better and sometimes I got really attached to them. As happened with Rafinha. Who is now actually my boyfriend, funny where the world takes us.

Just when I was about to go on a break and I walked out on the corridor, where people were waiting for their turn I noticed Rafinha walking towards me.

“Mom! That is Rafinha!” I heard a little girl sitting next to one of our patients.

“You want to take a picture with him?” I asked, before he came to us.

“Can I do that?” she asked her mom, who of course agreed.

“Hey.” Rafinha said as he stopped next to me and placed his arm on my back, but I moved it. It was a reflex, I did not know why I did that.

“Hey, this little fan would like to take a picture of you.” I said and he smiled to the little girl.

“Hey, what an adorable girl you are. You like football?” he asked getting lower to talk to her.

“I play it!” she said proudly, making the entire corridor laugh.

“That’s great. Want to take a picture?” he said and then her mom took a picture of them.

“Thank you so much sir.” Her mom said and then I looked at him confused for his appearance when he did not have an appointment today.

“Is anything wrong with your knee?” I asked before walking away to get something to eat.

“I came to see you.” he smiled and as he said that I looked around, hoping no one heard him, but they were all staring so I pushed him a little to get away.

“What is it with you?” he asked while we walked.

“I just… Are you sure you want other people to know about us?”

“Um, you are my girlfriend why would I have to hide you?” he asked confused. I was happy to hear that, but still not sure if this was the right decision. However I was happy to see him and when we walked out of the corridor I pushed him inside the toilet that was made only for the workers.

“Wow” he said as I closed the door and leaned closer to kiss him, passionately. It was different form last night’s kiss, much more intense.

“hey.” I said as I then moved away, to greet him the way I wanted from the beginning, but since we were in the eye of everyone it was not the best idea.

“Hey.” He said back and kissed me again. However, it was not safe to stay in there, since any worker could walk inside any minute so we went out and he went to have lunch with me.

“Neymar came to my house yesterday.” I said as I took a bite.

“Should I be concerned?”

“No, he just gave me my shirt I forgot and he said we should come see the game tonight.”

“Well I am going for sure, but I would love to have my plus one.” He smiled as he took one of my fries.

“I don’t know. Do you think people will notice? You are famous and there will be many photos taken of you, and I will be there…”

“Wait are we sure this is about me and not you? Are you afraid of the rumors?”

“I… I don’t know.”

“Well to be hones there are already many of them about you. People constantly see us together.”

He was right. I already read many comments about people asking about the girly who was always seen with either Rafinha or Neymar. Even thought my name was not known, because I was not famous they all wanted to know if I was and whom I was dating.

It was the thought of being seen with Rafinha in front of Neymar that made me feel uncomfortable. I did choose Rafa, but I still had feelings for Neymar, that could not be forgotten in a day.

“Okay then, I’ll go.” I said forcing a smile, just to make him smile and be sure I am not regretting anything.

“You sure? I don’t want to force you.”

“Yeah we can’t hide forever right?”

After I finished eating and had to go back to do my job, he had to leave and go on his own training. He kissed me on the lips, when we were alone on the corridor and then left.

I was happy for choosing him, to have next to me a guy that clearly cares about me and comes surprise me just so he can see me. I never had a boyfriend, since I was always waiting for the right one, no matter how hot one was I did not want to be hurt.

When I was driving back home I got a call. It was Neymar, which was unexpected. I answered, putting him on speaker.

“Hey (y/n)” he said with his raspy voice.

“Hey.”

“Am I interrupting you?”

“I’m driving, but tell me. Everything okay?”

“I need to know if you are coming tonight. I have to reserve a place.”

“Yes I will. I’ll pay my own ticket.”

“You do not have to pay if you are related in any way with a player. So there is no problem here right?”

He sounded a bit annoyed about it, but I did not say anything about it.

“Okay then. I’ll see you tonight.” I said and then we both hung up.

I remembered that I would have to be around him and Rafinha. I was worried about that, because I felt strange to think about it. I know he said I am just a friend for him, but still, we had something and I know he cared about me even if he denies it.

When I got home I did the usual, got under the shower, made myself dinner, watched TV and then I called Rafinha to make a plan.

He was going to pick me up in about an hour, which was enough just to put some mascara on and some other stuff. I was wearing some high waist black jeans and a sweater no big deal. I had one jersey that Neymar gave me, but I decided it was not necessary to wear that after what was going on these days.

Then Rafinha came and we drove our way to Camp Nou. I saw the crowd outside and it was crazy, never seen so many people at the same place. Then when we arrived, we met in the garage Dani and Rakitić. I was a friend of the three Brazilians, but I never met the team.

“Hey bro!” dani first greeted Rafa and then said hi to me and hugged me, while Rafa hugged Rakitić.

“So is she your girlfriend?” he asked as he shake my hand.

“Yes.” He smiled and winked at me as I presented myself to Ivan.

Then we made our way in the complex. We waited for all the players to come so Rafa could wish them all good luck.

“Ney!” Rafa said as the two of them did their usual handshake and laughed.

“Hey,” I smiled hoping he would act normally, but it was even worse than before. He just looked at me and nod his head, not even bother to open his mouth and say hi back.

Rafinha did not notice it, because he was talking to Arda, but it did make me mad. I decided to ignore him since this day, he was an idiot and I discovered that just now.

“Your date?” I heard Arda and then looked at him and greet him.

“I’m (y/n).” I smiled at him and noticed Neymar staring while talking with Dani and Adriano. Rafa was holding me next to him, his arm around my waist. Then when Arda walked away to get ready rafinha kissed my cheek and I smiled at him, because he calmed me down a little.

“Take this somewhere else.” Neymar said looking at us and then walked his way in the changing room.

“You’re just jealous” Rafinha joked laughing as if Neymar was just messing around. However, to me it sounded a lot more annoying and angry.

When the game was about to start I went with Rafinha to our places, where there were also Mascherano and Alba who were having a rest from Enrique so I managed to meet them too. I was so excited to see Messi play in front of me and I just hoped they would win.

“You’ll meet him after the game.” Rafinha suddenly said, probably noticing I was staring at him.

“I hope I don’t embarrass myself and faint.”

It was a few minutes before it was about to start and I had to go to the bathroom. When I ran to find it I lost myself and got to where the players were waiting to go on the pitch. Then I asked Dani to tell me where to go, but he laughed at me jet told me the way.

“What are you doing here?” Neymar asked when he walked out of the men’s bathroom when I was about to go in to women’s.

“Do I need your permission to go to the bathroom now?” I asked annoyed.

“You can do whatever the fuck you want.” He said and then walked away.

“Yeah I will!” I said angry but he ignored me and walked away.

I went inside and felt upset. What did I do to him to make him hate me this much, after all of the days spent together all those laughs, what made him change this much.

Then I walked back to my seat and saw Rafinha, his smile could make me feel better. I moved next to him and just hugged him tightly. I needed a hug from him, I needed to calm myself down and he was the only one who could do that.

“Everything okay?” he asked smiling but surprised I hugged him after complaining about hiding our relationship the entire day.

“Yes, it is now.” I smiled at him and he placed a kiss on my lips just before the referee blow the whistle and the game started.

does anyone recall when Maria hill mentioned that Pietro has an increased metabolism?

if I’m not mistaken, that means he wouldn’t just be able to run at incredibly high speeds. all of his bodily systems would have to function at incredibly high rates, especially if his body is going to handle and support such a fast runner. Everything from his muscles to his nerves to his respiratory system would have to work much faster than normal. his heart would beat very very fast, which would pump his blood pretty quick too, which leads me to believe that if he were wounded, say, a bullet to the arm, Pietro would probably bleed quite a bit.

But remember, he has an increased metabolism.

Meaning his immune system and white blood cells would also work much faster than normal, which only tells me that not only can he run fast, but he can also HEAL pretty fast too.

This explains why when he’s shot in the arm, he doesn’t really show any signs of actual pain, and the wound doesn’t look like it bleeds much for a bullet wound. Most likely, as soon as he took off again after being shot the first time, his arm was probably pretty well healed over.

And the point? Well, when Ultron shot at Clint and Pietro took the bullets, of course the caliber and speed of the bullets was greater, not to mention the number. So yeah, he took extensive damage, and maybe was dead for a few minutes at most, but most likely, by the very end of AOU, the only reason we don’t see him in the new Avengers line up is because Wanda grounded him to his hospital bed for scaring her so bad.
