thought trail

what she says: i’m fine

what she means: ben platt gave up so much of himself to this role, to this show. for over four years, he dedicated himself so fully and completely to this character and this experience. no words can describe how grateful i am for everything he’s done, for everything he’s given us. for his voice, for his song. as someone with anxiety, he’s shown be that i really can grow, that i can achieve great things in life too. i honestly just feel so blessed to have been lucky enough to witness it all, to witness the pure magic he pours out onto the stage every night, to know this beautiful story and to watch him so deservedly succeed. i’m devastated to see him go, but i so firmly believe that he’ll achieve so many other amazing things in life, and i can’t wait to root for him the entire way. so, thank you, ben platt. thank you, thank you, thank you. for everything.

Mind Reader

Characters: Dean x Reader

Warnings: angst adjacent, smut, dirty talk, LOTS of language

Word Count: 2.7k

A/N: I was looking through some REALLY old requests and I came across an idea from @jennalyncarrigan1230 from who knows how long ago. She pitched an idea that I have twisted and LOVE the outcome. I doubt she even remembers sending the ask, but her initial idea sparked this smutty goodness. This took on a life of its own. I haven’t wrote Dean smut or ANY smut in quite some time. This is officially DIRTY. Or at least by my standards it is. Hope you enjoy. ;) Italics & Bold indicate reader’s thoughts.  This has very little plot. Just the poor reader thinking her secret dirty thoughts about Dean only to have them be not so secret anymore.

Feedback Appreciated

Humans Are Weird

It is well established among all sentient species that Humans are Weird. Exceptional Humans, however, make the regular humans seem almost tame in comparison.
Yatrov was to show the newest crew member- another Human- “the ropes”, as Human Jenny phrased it.
Upon arriving, however, the newest Human barely spared xir even a glance, which was odd, seeing how Humans prize interaction above all else. Shrugging it off, xe delicately held out a clawed hand to engage in the Human positive-meeting greeting, a “hand-shake” it was aptly named. “I am known as Yatrov, in Human Common tongue. I am sorry to say that I was unable to read your file report, and am thus left without your name. What is it you wish to be called?” Yatrov was genuinely sorry; the ship was in dire need of repairs, and this Human was coming to help.
Instead of taking the proffered hand, the human’s brown eyes stared into xi’s own violet. “I am Giovanni. And you are approximately 7 minutes late. I do not fault you for your tardiness, your job is a busy one, so your apologies are void. I do not need to see the entirety of this ship, I only require the engine room. Take me there and I will begin repairs immediately. Social niceties and other such meaningless things can be done at a later date, if done they must be at all.”
Yatrov felt somewhat slighted; xe’s species did not greet with touch, but it was seen as an insult- a social misdemeanor- to deny the shaking of hands. Attributing it to the Human having been under circumstances that made him “cranky” and to the fact that the Human was excited to work- humans forgot norms when excited, xe had found- Yatrov continued to try to create a pack-bond with this Human, “I have heard many great things about you.”
“Truly?” The Human considered this for a moment, head tilting, “I am merely faster than most, mentally. A marathoner or racer is not spoken of in as high-esteem as those with quick mental facilities are, are they?” The Human was speaking out loud, xe found this practice odd and ignored it. “What exactly have you heard?” The Human tapped their legs with their fingers, adopting a rhythm unknown to xir, and hummed. 
Arrogance or curiosity? “Admittedly, not much has been told. I know that you have several thesis papers, have repaired and improved upon numerous ships, and that you were good enough that our captain was surprised that you even bothered to consider joining our crew.”
“Huh.” And that was that. Giovanni did not speak after that, made no effort to communicate. Giovanni did not try to obtain physical contact. Giovanni remained aloof with even Human crewmates long after he had joined. He also remained fidgety, seemingly unable to keep still, unless it was to engage in a staring contest with the resident cat- to keep the Humans from adopting a weird, deadly creature- or to continue his single-minded work with machinery.
Three weeks after he had joined, the ship was attacked. Vernians boarded the ship, using their many appendages to apprehend multiple members of The Highlight- the ship- at once. No one knew where Giovanni was, and no one would have been surprised if he had left to save his own hide.
Which was precisely why everyone, who were all bound and trying to negotiate with what was essentially pirates, was surprised when Giovanni came around the corner, a knocked out Vernian held under gun point.
Guns pointed at him, Vernians shifted to attack him. “What you need to know: firstly, I have hacked into your language processors. All Vernae will sound like gibberish.” He paused, then grinned ferally. “Try”, he dared.
“Kir-ah?!” They did, and did not seem pleased with the results.
“Back! Restore!” the voices of Vernians screeched, their language translators on the fritz. 
“Secondly,” he paused, “I will shoot your friend if you do not release my own.” When an uproar of shouting started again, he blandly stated, “Blank point will be quite messy, won’t it?” He hummed, as though in thought, though his eyes trailed after every movement the Vernians made.
A smaller one, likely emotionally closer to the Vernian Giovanni was holding captive,  pounced.
ZZZZZT-PA! The Vernian howled, two of its 11 “arms” gone. “My threat is not idle.”
The room quieted, members of the Highlighter slowly being released.
“Thirdly.” His lips pursed, his nose tilted, sneer deadly, “Run, and pray that I never see you again!” He shot a wall, and they scattered, leaving the crew of The Highlighter mostly unscathed.
It was hours later, after the chaos was settled and the ship fixed up again, that Yatrov approached Giovanni.
“Why did you save us?”
Giovanni scrunched his thick eyebrows together, “Why ever would I not?”
“You make no attempt to communicate with us.” Yatrov insisted, trying to discover the reason Giovanni would do something without some sort of gain.
“Oh, that.” He dismissively waved his hand, his face again lax and bored. “I do not see the point in wasting words. I enjoy the presence of the crew, and- while I see no point in engaging in it- their idle chatter is amusing to listen to.” He raised an eyebrow, “Why do you ask?”
“The crew operated under the belief that you disliked us.” Yatrov felt a small bit of shame; clearly, Yatrov had been wrong to assume that all Humans were so similar.
“I-” He looked hurt, eyes filling with water- tears, they were called, and Yatrov knew that this was not a good sign. His lips twitched, his words near whispered, “Did you not consider me a friend? I thought we were.” He had begun nervously threading his fingers, humming lightly.
“I thought you disliked me.” Yatrov’s admission only increased xir’s guilt, and the slight tremors of the Humans smaller body.
“I made you and the others a new computer.” Giovanni’s eyes searched Yatrov’s one, and again found no solace. A computer did not equate to friendship. “I *made* you and the others a new computer.” The emphasis hit Yatrov. Why would one handmake something if the person receiving it did not matter to them.
“I am sorry.” Yatrov paused, xe had seen it in a Human film once, maybe…? “Can we start over?” A small nod eased Yatrov’s mind and reaffirmed xir’s decision. “I am the one known as Yatrov, and I enjoy reading: fiction, typically.” Xe did not hold out his hand, but stared Giovanni right in the eye.
The smirk on Giovanni’s face told xir that the actions- or lack there of- was not missed. “I am known as Giovanni.” He held out his hand, looking smug and slightly proud of remembering this, as their hands clasped, he said, “I enjoy sandwhiches, science, and conversations on how realistic or achievable a work of fiction can be. It will be a pleasure to work with you.”

Humans were odd, but exceptional Humans lived by a very different set of rules. Intelligence changed their perceptions. Yatrov knew, from personal experience, that they were still Human, still fantastic and horrifying, at their core. Yatrov put down the book xe was reading, looking up to watch Giovanni’s animated expressions as he ranted about machinery. Yes, truly, Humans are Weird.


(Please excuse any grammar/spelling mistakes, my hand has been cramping up lately and it is hard to write at the moment. And I should not be writing sci-fi, because it is NOT my forte, but I had a plot-bunny and felt the need to attempt it. This is basically a shortened version of what I wanted to write, skipping over much of what I actually wanted to put down. Feel free to take the general idea and write something better XD )

☊ Nodes & Karmic Lessons ☋

~The North Node *sign* placement tells you the traits you need to develop or attitudes you need to adopt (South Node tells you the traits you’ve mastered).

HOUSES:

These traits need to develop most in/within….

1st house NN - 7th house SN: … the self and the disposition. // you’re already very focused on your partnerships and relationships with others, and may find yourself quite co-dependent or reliant on others for comfort. friends, partners or lovers may have helped you a lot in the past. you may make relationship issues a big focus in your life because you might feel uncomfortable or incomplete alone. in the past you may have defined yourself through your relationships. the biggest lesson you need to learn in this life is to channel all that energy into yourself, on your own; cultivating an authentic sense of self is vital to your soul’s journey.

2nd house NN - 8th house SN: … the acquisition of resources and your sense of self-worth. // in the past you may have received or relied on the support of others’ finances or resources a lot or had a sizeable inheritance; you have a natural ability to attract financial or emotional assistance from others. you may be private or defensive about this, for it eats away at your self-esteem. regardless, the biggest lesson you need to learn is to establish your own firm set of values, focus more on acquiring resources instead of inheriting or preserving them, to build something for yourself with your resourcefulness and business savvy talents. explore the meaning of money in your life - it’ll help you develop a comfortable, healthy sense of self-worth.

3rd house NN - 9th house SN: … the way you communicate and learn, your ideas. // you’ve already inherited a deep understanding of life and the world’s ways, acquiring much insightful knowledge and perception in the process. you’re a natural philosopher. you might be too caught up in your beliefs or opinions. in the past you may have defined yourself through these beliefs and your life experiences (or lack thereof). you may have sacrificed friendships or intellectual connections with others in pursuit of your own personal truths and exploration of abstracted wisdom. the biggest lesson you need to learn is connecting with and listening to others’ ideas instead of assuming yours are the most enlightened/authentic. cultivate a sense of open-mindedness to others’ beliefs, explore new trails of thought instead of experiences. you need to pursue different lines of thinking for the sole purpose of communicating. express yourself and your ideas but be open to others’ inputs as well - understand that you don’t need to experience something in order to have the right input for it. engage in intellectual debates. looking through a logical, rational lens that aims to simply talk things out will help your soul experience more than you ever thought it could

4th house NN - 10th house SN: … your emotional foundations, domestic life and your inner circle. // you’re already quite keen on following your aspirations and have a good understanding of the public sphere and how it works. ambitious and effortlessly recognisable, you may have an infamous reputation. in the past you may have defined yourself through your achievements. you have a deep need to be publicly honoured, successful or accomplished and may have pursued status and prestige at the expense of your family or inner circle. your biggest lesson in life is to learn to stop being so preoccupied with accomplishments and discipline and focus more on building emotional connections and foundations. don’t underestimate the importance of a warm, hospitable home. cultivate an appreciation for your private, domestic life. learn to develop a deep understanding of your own background and origins, how they’ve shaped you as a person. you may be self-sufficient but you need to pay more attention to the base of and depth behind your emotions. only by reconnecting with the past will your soul’s journey begin

5th house NN - 11th house SN: … the creative expression of the self and what you find entertaining. // you’re already very focused on expressing/bonding through ideals ad causes and probably have a diverse social life or network of friends or potentially a strong sense of community. you have a deep respect for activism and revolutionary efforts and may try to contribute to the state of the world any way you can. in the past you may have defined yourself through humanitarian deeds or ideals. you may be opinionated about these ideals, valuing efforts towards a reformed society and pre-occupying yourself with global issues. the biggest lesson you need to learn is to explore your passions sense of creativity. you need to cultivate a certain degree of… self-involvement, for lack of a better word; self-expression for your own pleasure, engage in more light hearted entertaining activities and interests, stimulate your appetite for love and pleasure instead of getting lost in your causes. connect with children and your sunny, performative side; exploring your leisurely interests and expressing your love generously is the key to reaching karmic fulfilment

6th house NN - 12th house SN: … your health, routines, the way you help others and your jobs. // you’re already incredibly intuitive and focused on your spirituality or connection to higher powers/beliefs. you have a deep understanding of the complex and the unseen.. in the past you may have defined yourself based on your faith. you may have been sacrificial and have enhanced compassionate abilities that caused others to take advantage of your kindness. the biggest lesson you need to learn in life is to discriminate. you need to learn to set boundaries and simply know to say no. you need to stop getting lost in daydreams and focus on more menial tasks, your daily routines, jobs and habits. don’t be neglectful of these things just because they lack the transcendental depth you’ve grown accustomed to. cultivate a stronger sense of health awareness. it is essential for your soul’s journey to learn to focus more on practical day-to-day issues

7th house NN - 1st house SN: … your relationships and your interactions with others. // you’re already very focused on how you can improve yourself or be authentic to yourself and are generally very self-aware. you can in the process be quite oblivious to how helpful others can be in your life and you may reject help from others because you’re used to being more independent. you may be hardened, with an innate strength developed from potentially difficult or violent experiences in the past. the biggest lesson you need to learn in this life is to be more *truly* considerate of and focused on others, to learn to depend and lean on others more. you need to pay more attention to your relationships and cultivate kindness and understanding from them. learn to transfer your strength to others.

8th house NN - 2nd house SN: … your private or intimate relationships and your legacy. // you already have a firm set of values and know what you desire to own or have. you are able to provide security and comfort with ease, and may be prone to hoarding. you have a sensual, self-reliant nature and know the importance of working steadily towards your goals. in the past you may have defined yourself on the basis of what you possess and their value. the biggest lesson you need to learn is to open yourself to other experiences of the world; you need to develop a trust in others so you can transform through your exchanges with them. pay more attention to the deepest corners of your soul, how you utilise power and how you approach intimacy. be more open to assistance and support from others, emotional or financial or otherwise. only by reexamining and regenerating your rigid values will your soul begin to achieve its purpose

9th house NN - 3rd house SN: … your travels, education and personal beliefs. // you’re already quite focused on communicating with others and you’re deeply inquisitive, flexible or curious about your environment. you articulate your ideas with ease and have an intellectual side; you may be so preoccupied with the exchange of ideas that you ignore your own personal beliefs and sense of faith or depth. in the past you may have defined yourself based on these ideas and their expression. your biggest lesson is to learn to develop a solid foundation of your true self, travel and explore the deep or spiritual meaning of life. focus less on scattered ideas and more on philosophy, ask questions that can’t be answered. you need to pursue your own experiences instead of adapting to the ones present in your surroundings. learning to broaden your horizons is vital to your soul’s growth

10th house NN - 4th house SN: … your public image and aspirations. // you have an uncanny ability to create warm, hospitable ‘home’ environments and a deep understanding of familial values and traditions; the importance of a tight-knit community. you’re already very focused on this and may be quite nurturing due to a prominent attachment to your childhood. you may have defined yourself through your family in the past. the biggest lesson you need to learn is to cultivate a sense of responsibility to society rather than your family and understand your role outside of your home. you need to explore your career aspirations, achievements and build a reputation. this is essential to your soul’s destiny.

11th house NN - 5th house SN: … your community and circle of friends. // you’ve mastered the art of creative self-expression and can do it with ease, perhaps through performing or being in the spotlight/centre of attention. you have an ability to entertain and bring joy, you make your talents the focus of your life. you may be prone to gambling, overindulging or taking risks you shouldn’t. the biggest lesson you need to learn to use your creativity for more original, less self-oriented means. learn to serve society instead of yourself. cultivate a sense of community and friendship using your ability to entertain, participate in activism. distribute your creativity to innovative channels, invent something with your vision. develop open-mindedness and learn to love/receive love in novel ways.

12th house NN - 6th house SN: … your solitude and spirituality. // you have self-discipline and an eye for detail almost naturally; you’ve inherited the skill of observance and try to stay quite health-aware. in the past you may have defined yourself through your dedication to menial tasks, your health and your work. you may have sacrificed your spirituality or dreams in pursuit of practicality. you’re a perfectionist and have high standards, and may be preoccupied with work or day-to-day routines. the biggest lesson you need to learn in this life is to look within. pay more attention to what your subconscious is telling you, revel in solitude, practice sacrificial compassion and devotion to religious/spiritual beliefs. connect with your creative side. you need to cultivate some faith in the unseen and trust in the unknown forces, engage with the abstract. you need to let go of your tendency to plan ahead and instead let yourself be guided (by your own hidden and neglected facets). quiet introspection is vital here. the things you deem impractical are vital to self-enrichment and the fulfillment of your soul’s purpose

The only girl Jungkook wants is the one he can never have.

Originally posted by bangtaninspired

The door to Jungkook’s home carelessly flew open and his lips were instantly pressed to yours. He swiftly closed the door behind you with his foot before pushing you against the wall. You melted into him as you coiled your arms around his neck, your lips finding his in a sweet, but intense kiss. His tongue tapped your lips for entrance and you let out a small moan of approval, causing him to grin as he broke the kiss, attacking every centimetre of exposed skin that he could find on your neck and jawline.

“God, dinner lasted forever,” you gasped breathlessly, letting your head fall back against the wall as he feathered kisses across your jawline, “And your little trick under the table almost got us caught.”

He pressed his erection into your lower stomach as he lowered his lips to your ear and his voice came out in a deep hiss. “I guess I just can’t resist you,” he spoke huskily, his tongue lightly brushing against your earlobe as he smirked and kissed your sweet spot behind your ear. 

Your breath hitched in your throat, your lips parting slightly as you breathed out a moan and melted into him and the wall behind you. If his body hadn’t been pressed against yours, you knew you would’ve slid down the wall. He barely did anything to you and you already felt utterly wrecked. Your legs felt like jello and your breathing was heavy. You couldn’t think of something funny or sarcastic to say, so you focused on calming your pounding heart.
