Bedridden witch: Nature edition

Originally posted by justdrethings

Let’s be honest here. Most of us bedridden peeps don’t have an awesome bed setup like this, and our nature exposure can be limited. However, here’s some tips and tricks to staying connected to nature while stuck in bed, with contributions from myself (@heatherwitch), @thewitchofthenorse, @spooniewitches, @persephoneandthepomegranates & @theepagangrace!

  • Open a window, or crack the curtains
  • Hang rainbow prisms in your window
  • Keep a houseplant nearby
  • If regular houseplants require too much energy: Try cacti, succulents, lucky bamboo, or spiderplants!
  • Hang nature/forest/plant artwork around
  • Get air freshener or room spray that reminds you of the outdoors
  • Watch a nature documentary or shows with people exploring nature – check out nature (photography) videos on Netflix for calming videos
  • Listen to forest soundscapes [X
  • Set a nature scene as your screensaver
  • Keep a jar of soil around
  • Talk with any nature deities you work with
  • Follow nature blogs
  • Get sheets, blankets, or pillowcases with leafy designs, flower designs, etc.
  • Get a star map app on your phone to be more connected to the night sky
  • Have a vase of flowers (real or fake)
  • Keep crystals around that remind you of nature (Moss agate, petrified wood, onyx, selenite, agate geodes, etc.)
  • Use sigils designed to connect you to nature
  • Use air conditioning or a fan to make it less stuffy in your room
  • Read and write poetry about nature
  • Press plants/flowers or hang dried herbs by your bed
  • Spend some time looking outside of your window
  • Burn a nature scented candle or incense (Irish moss, myrrh, frankincense, opium, and lavender)
  • Use astral travel or dream magic to get to outdoor areas
  • Watch livestream videos of outdoor areas
  • Make a sachet of grass, oak bark (or whatever tree you like), quartz, and salt. Hang it near your bed.

With help from others:

  • Get someone to collect rainwater for you, and use it to wash your face
  • Ask a friend to take some pictures of cool places they go in nature and send them to you
  • Have someone collect rocks/plants/feathers etc. from each day and bring them back for you 
  • Have someone pick wildflowers for you
  • Drink some herbal tea
  • Have someone you trust harvest wild edibles/berries for you – or at least bring fresh fruits and veggies!
  • Skype or video chat with someone while they’re outside
  • Take the scenic route/detour to some natural areas the next time you need a car ride

I just want to elaborate on one thing.

Jason Todd is not the temperamental one in the family

Yeah, sure, Jason is more serious and ruthless but the decisions he makes arent made out of anger or rage. He chooses his actions wisely out of his own beliefs. Such case is his decision to kill people that he feels deserve it. I understand how people may come to this conclusion but Jason isn’t fuelled by his rage.

Dick Grayson however, is.

He is more lighthearted than the rest of the batfamily, which can easily lead people to mischaracterise him as a bumbling ball of sunshine that adores hugs and cuddles. In the comics, someone once said something like: “He’s a happier, more approachable Batman” which is true, but people tend to forget that he is still like batman. (AKA not made out of sunshine and rainbows)

I’ve seen countless times where Dick loses his temper and lashes out, only to regret it later. Like when he beat the Joker to death, then later stared at his hands in shock saying “What have I done?” Or that time he snapped and went fucking crazy at Donna Troy. How about when he was trying to get a drink from a soda machine at Blüdhaven PD, and when it wouldn’t work, he punched it in anger, right in front of all his colleagues.

It was once stated while Dick was Damian’s Batman that sometimes he actively avoids human contact and watches nature documentaries because there aren’t any people in it.

The key difference between Dick and Jason here is that Jason doesn’t regret his actions as much, as he doesn’t usually lash out without thinking, while Dick does very frequently, as he has a nasty temper

B99 + Apartment AU: in which Jake, Charles, Rosa, and Amy live together while attending the police academy.

  • They technically see each other every day at training, but they all still try to hang out together once a week. (Usually movie nights, occasionally game nights, sometimes with alcohol, always in pajamas.) 
  • Charles offers to make dinner for all of them some time during their first week together. – He makes a dish involving bull testicles and is never allowed to cook for them again. (He’s still allowed to make hot cocoa though, which Jake asks for every time he comes home with a bruise.) 
  • Amy dies a little on the inside every morning Jake sleepily pads into the kitchen, hair still messed up from sleep and voice still a bit hoarse. 
  • The smoke alarm goes off almost every time Amy attempts to cook something. 
  • The number of times Amy has thought about just walking over to Jake’s room and kissing him senseless is  r i d i c u l o u s.
  • Rosa has at least three extra locks on her door, and none of the others have seen the inside of her room. (After catching Gina sneak out of there the morning after their graduation, Jake bribes her into telling him exactly how it looks like.) 
  • Jake somehow manages to leave various articles of clothing everywhere, and this annoys Amy to no end. (Partly because each rumpled shirt just makes her think about what it would feel like to tear his clothes off herself.)
  • Amy puts a calendar on their fridge and implements a cleaning schedule, with the chores all divvied up between the four of them. Jake complains very loudly about this at first but later has a ton of fun dancing around their living room while vacuuming and scream-singing Taylor Swift songs.
  • Charles regularly helps Rosa with her texting game. (Amy tries to contribute at some point, but her offer to proofread messages is quickly shot down.) 
  • From her room, Amy hears the door slamming closed followed by the sound of muffled voices and giggling. She peaks her head out a bit, and her stomach lurches when she catches a blur of bodies making their way toward Jake’s room. She crashes at Kylie’s that night because the walls in their apartment are thin, and she doesn’t want to hear a thing. (It’s a drunken one night stand that doesn’t come to anything because the girl’s apparently in law school studying to be a defense attorney.) 
  • Charles and Rosa do yoga together on Sunday mornings. They try to get Jake and Amy into it, but Jake just makes a joke out of everything, and Amy becomes weirdly competitive about it. 
  • Jake once woke everyone up at an ungodly hour because he had been watching a nature documentary and yelling over the grossness of live births. He since then has been banned from watching nature documentaries past midnight. 
  • Every so often (more and more frequently as time passes), Jake and Amy find themselves sitting on the floor of their living room way past 2 am, just talking and laughing. (Charles and Rosa can hear them from their rooms, but neither of them say anything about it.)  
  • Through the wall between their rooms, Rosa can hear Amy creepily singing songs before each big test/evaluation at the academy. The third time this happens, Rosa knocks on Amy’s door and stays with her until she’s calmed down. (”You’ll do great. Stop stressing, dum-dum.”)
  • Jake runs out of shampoo and doesn’t want to dig through Charles’ erotic shampooing kit, so he sneaks into the girls’ bathroom and steals a bit from the first bottle he sees. (Turns out it’s Amy’s, and it drives him nuts that he smells like her the whole day. Amy somehow doesn’t notice, but Rosa threatens to castrate him if he ever enters their bathroom again.) 
  • Charles likes to blast show tunes while doing chores or cooking large meals (or doing anything, really). They’ve all had front row seats to his renditions of choice songs from Oliver, Annie, and Cats. 
  • Amy’s usually pretty neat, so Rosa is shocked to enter her room to find nuts all over the floor… and on her shirt, and in her hair, and somehow on her bed a few feet away. (”Jake said I couldn’t catch any of these with my mouth, so I’m just-” “Don’t care. Call me if you grab each other’s asses.”) 
  • Jake’s been thinking of asking Amy out for ages, but he’s too afraid of the potential fallout. Both Charles and Rosa try to talk him into doing something about his feelings.
  • Amy once catches Jake coming out of the shower with just a towel wrapped around his waist. Needless to say, all work was forgotten that evening, and she had to take a long shower herself. 
  • It’s during one of their 3 am heart-to-heart convos that Jake and Amy finally kiss, and they don’t end up sleeping until the sun starts to rise. When Amy comes out of Jake’s room close to lunch time (donning one of his checkered shirts, because her pajama top is nowhere to be found), she finds a spread of various aphrodisiacs (courtesy of Charles) and a box of condoms (courtesy of Rosa) on their dining table. 

Shout out to @peraltiagoisland, @elsaclack, @dogworldchampion, @stardustsantiago, and @tiadorable for letting me yell about this AU and helping me come up with these headcanons!!!!!!!!

MORE Adult Animated Films You Can Watch Instead of Sausage Party
  • Waltz With Bashir: An Israeli animated autobiographical war-documentary film about director Ari Folman attempting to recover repressed memories from his time as a soldier in the Lebanon War of 1982. This is a very dark film that explores many heavy themes throughout. It was actually quite controversial in some Arabian countries, being officially banned in Lebanon.
  • Persepolis: It's about a young girl growing up in the middle of the 1979 Iranian revolution and the political conflicts and government corruption she dealt with at that time, covering mostly the first 20 years of her life. This film was controversial too, with Iranian government only allowing a limited release and Bangkok's International Film Festival dropping it completely, as well as being protested against after an airing on a Tunisian television network, and being completely banned in Lebanon.
  • Mary and Max: A stop motion film about two strangers, an adult with Asperger's Syndrome and a little girl who lives in an abusive environment, who one day become pen-pals. It's actually a very profound film that deals with themes such as friendship, isolation, abuse, suicide, mental illness, and more. The film has many heavy moments as well as many light-hearted and funny ones, having just as much drama as it has comedy.
  • Strange Frame, Love and Sax: A 2012 cutout animated science-fiction musical film starring Tara Strong and Claudia Black, about a lesbian couple from another planet who fall in love after meeting each other while escaping a riot and form a band with an ultimate goal of worldwide fame, but are eventually split apart. Many of the characters in this movie are LGBTQA+, and all of them are of color.
  • A Scanner Darkly: An American animated sci-fi thriller film about a future where America lost the war on drugs and everyone is under constant police surveillance, directed by Richard Linklater and starring Robert Downey Jr., Keanu Reeves, and Winona Ryder, based on Phillip K. Dick's novel of the same name.
  • Waking Life: Also directed by Richard Linklater, an American animated drama documentary about a guy who constantly finds himself placed in various dream-like realities, most of which have people who have conversations with him about philosophical topics questioning the nature of reality and existence itself.
  • Wrinkles/Arrugas: A Spanish animated drama film about a retired bank manager suffering from Alzheimer's who is taken into an assisted living home and makes a new friend, who together try to disguise Emilio's worsening illness from doctors so that they don't transfer him to the top floor.
  • Princess: A Dutch drama film about a missionary named Augustus whose sister, a former porn star named 'Princess', leaves behind her daughter after she dies of a drug overdose. Augustus adopts her daughter and embarks on a violent mission to destroy all existing evidence of Princess's career. Probably the most explicit one of all of these films, not for the faint of heart due to it's themes and graphic nature.
  • Fantastic Planet: French stop-motion film about a group of aliens who get captured and kept as pets by another, more spiritually/technologically advanced species of aliens, but organize a mass rebellion after one of the aliens from the advanced planet educates the other spieces, which is forbidden. This film contains very surreal, psychedelic imagery that's similar to Classic Sesame Street, The Electric Company, and Yellow Submarine.

“Virunga” is such a powerful documentary that shows the hidden side of conflict in the Congo as SOCO try to illegally take over natural parks such as Virunga in order to mine and dig for oil. 

The documentary shows the life of those at the park who will not stand for their primate friends being destroyed for greed, and are willing to be killed too if it means they can try and save the animals.

scumbag-stallion  asked:

What to do if you see a wolf in the wild? What if it seems aggressive?

If you encounter a wolf in the wild that is acting agressive towards you and is not scared of approaching you, the following is best to do: don’t run or turn your back on them. Instead, stand your ground, make yourself as big and tall as possible and make as much noise as you can - scream, turn up loud music on your phone, anything. Throw stuff at them if possible. If they don’t go away, back away slowly. This goes for encountering a pack of wolves as well. If they attack and you can, climb into a tree. Otherwise curl up on the ground and cover your face and neck.

In case you’re in an enclosure and a wolf is seemingly agressive: stand with your back to the fence, and move to the exit while keeping your back to the fence. Make sure you don’t trip.

The above situation of wild wolves being agressive and unafraid towards humans is an unlikely one. During most wild wolf encounters, the wolf will flee once it becomes aware of your presence, or will curiously observe you from a safe distance for a while without you even being aware of it, to then most likely loose interest and proceed doing whatever it was doing.

Encounters with wild wolves are rare, because wolves are shy animals. Over time, wolves learned to see us as dangerous, and will typically avoid us. If you spot a wolf in the wild, it is most likely not aware of your presence or has decided you’re not a threat. Most of the time they are aware of our presence first, instead of the other way around.

When a human enters a place where wild wolves live who aren’t familiar with humans (and so haven’t learned yet that we are dangerous to them), there is a chance they will come and check you out when they feel you are not a threat (which would most likely only be the case when you’re not moving and are sitting or lying down). In this case I mean really coming up close to sniff you and check you out. If this ever happens to you (although this is a véry unlikely thing because as stated above, most wolves ‘know’ of humans and learned to avoid them and see us as dangerous), best thing to do is stay low to the ground, don’t make sudden movements, and don’t make any eye contact. This makes it sound like they are very aggressive animals, but this is just purely to make sure to act in the most save way and to communicate good intentions - better safe than sorry. Once they’ve discovered you are not a threat, they will most likely loose interest in you, leave you alone and no longer bother about you. (Here’s a great video from the documentary “A woman among wolves”, in which a pack of curious wolves not yet familiar with humans approaches German biologist Gudrun Pflueger. To communicate to the wolves that she has good intentions, she lays on the ground, trying not to move much). 

Also it’s happening more and more that wild wolves become habituated due to people feeding wildlife, making them lose their natural shyness towards humans. This is problematic because these wolves are still wild predators who’s actions and interpretations of our actions can’t be predicted. Even a little warning bite from a scared wolf can be disastrous, and if an incident happens or if authorities decide the wolf is getting too close to people or urban areas, the wolf will get punished (which usually means said wolf being shot). Here and here are some tips on how to prevent wolves from becoming habituated.

  • Matt: *from his spot on the sofa fending off Pidge with one arm* she's trying to assert dominance

Logic and the psychology of mistakes

Let me start by saying I know nothing I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT PSYCHOLOGY! and I was technical at work when I wrote this so no research went into it, those of you who do know about psychology please take it easy on me.

This came about because I a) didn’t want Logic to be completely clueless about feelings, b) i wanted Logic to have a bond between each side and c) Logicality first kiss. Also somehow I ended up with just a little more Morality angst but it all ends in fluff

Warnings: mentioned injury, guilt, feeling like a failure, made up psychology. let me know if I need to add anything.

Nature Documentary

The Yurio’s natural habitat is in Russia, where he can be commonly found. He has also been spotted in some parts of Japan. Yurio is often mistaken for popular big cat species such as tigers and cheetahs, to name a few.

He is a solitary creature who will usually spend most of his life alone until a suitable mate arrives. The standards of Yurio are very high which makes this an even more difficult venture.

A wild Otabek appears in the distance and catches Yurio’s eye. The Otabek approaches Yurio with caution, not trying to scare him off. He smiles. The wild Otabek succeeded. They walk away together.

When a Yurio finds a mate, they are together for life. The standards of a Yurio are so high because he does not want to spend his life with a partner that he will lose interest in later in life.
Next week on ‘Stranger Nature’, we take another look at Viktor and Yuuri, and look deeper into the brain of the Minami.

anonymous asked:

Hey how to find the purpose of life?

I don’t think you need to know exactly what it is, as long as you do things everyday that seem meaningful to you. 

Finding joy in helping others is one of the most meaningful things, but you won’t be able to do that before you help yourself first. 

So I believe working on self growth and self love is the beginning of finding your purpose. 

When people tell you to “Work on yourself” it means stepping out of your comfort zone, opening your mind, being self aware, living in the moment and getting new perspective which leads to you being more connected to your true self.

Okay Consider this McHanzo AU (re-posted because i couldn’t edit the original)

Its McCrees birthday and everyone is at his house for a the party, They are having a good time then Gabriel pulls out a Ouija board from his bag and tells everyone to gather round to play it. McCree, being the biggest scaredy cat when it comes to paranormal things reluctantly sits down in the circle. He’s the birthday boy so he HAS to join in.

Everyone except for Lena, Gabriel, McCree, Hana and Jack sit out because they all mutually agree that they’re gonna die if they join in

Gabriel, knowing full well McCree is scared of paranormal things gets him to ask the spirits if they are here. He’s only doing it because McCree and Hana played a prank on him and Jack earlier in a week where they mixed hair dye into Jack’s shampoo. Granted he’s not complaining about his boyfriends sexy black hair now (He likes it because his boyfriend looks edgy and it’s all he’s ever wanted for him). Though Gabriel would NEVER use a Ouija Board in his home, fuck that, it’s only okay to do it in his adopted sons home because he’s a demon of a son so it makes sense

McCree sucks it up and they all put their hands on the planchette (The Pointer thingy) and McCree squeaks out a greeting and asks for the Spirits name, and suddenly the pointer starts to move, everyone gasps and watches with baited breathe as it moves  to the “H”. McCree holds his breath and tries not to laugh at his friends moving the planchette because cmon how obvious. Eventually it spells our “Hanzo” and McCree, albeit still spooked about the idea of using a Ouija Board looks at Gabriel and says “Hanzo? Really, what a awfully stupid name, you could have at least made up something better to scare me” and then Gabriel just looks at McCree his face literally just says “I’m not moving it” then suddenly the pointer jerks out of everyone’s fingers off the desk into the wall and everyone SCREAMS.

McCree lets out a loud “Oh fuck this no” and quickly puts away the Ouija board, covering it in hopes that it would make whatever spirit that they were talking to go away

After a few minutes of everyone just being shocked and spooked Gabriel squeaks out “We didn’t say goodbye to end the contract” McCree says “Well boo hoo it’s gone now, get that Ouija Board outs of my house right now, I’m NEVER letting any of you do anything like that again in my house”

———————————

Few Hours Later after everyone’s gotten drunk and forgot about the incident they leave and McCree goes and curls up in bed with a smile on his face because what a good birthday. His peaceful sleep is suddenly interrupted when he dreams of pale skin blue skin and a snarl which makes him wake up with a shout, Breathing heavily he looks up to see a figure standing in his doorway and he lets out the loudest, manliest scream he could muster as he trips and falls out of bed reaching for Peacekeeper on his bedside table.

Suddenly there’s a oddly warm hand over his mouth muffling his yelling and then he’s being pushed down onto his bed and he looks up and he’s greeted with the exact same blue skin he seen in his nightmare, swallowing while trying to gather himself he looks into his attacker’s eyes and for a second all time freezes as he looks into pale white eyes.

Coming back to his senses McCree closes his eyes and tenses his body as he tries to brace himself for being ripped to shreds by a demon, because, there’s a demon holding him down staring right at him with a scowl. That’s what he gets for messing with a Ouija Board.  

Then a husky heavily accented voice reaches McCrees ears as said Demon says “Cease your screaming, i am here to make you end out contract so i can leave, you didn’t say bid me farewell”

McCree nods as the hand frees his mouth and he all but squeaks “You’re not going to kill me? You’re the Hanzo? The….. demon from earlier?’ and Hanzo replies with a “Yes i am, Though i want nothing more than to punish you for insulting me earlier, i promise i will not hurt you”

Then McCree passes out

Blah blah blah he wakes up thinking it was a dream but it wasn’t then he freaks out again and Hanzo promises not to hurt him again and that all he wants to do is to end their contract but informs McCree he needs the Ouija board they used because like ritual magic seal bindings voodoo voodo stuff so McCree calls up Gabriel and asks from him to bring it over without explaining it and Gabriel is like “Oh yah we kinda threw out into the river because Jack was to scared to bring it home he said he would withhold sex if i didn’t get it as far away from him as possible”

Upon hearing this Hanzo gets mad and shifts into a full on terrifying demon form and McCree closes his eyes and literally almost starts crying from seeing this and Hanzo looks at the human and feels guilty. So he shifts back into his human form. Hanzo says there’s no way to end the contract and that they’re stuck together unless McCree dies which McCree instantly freaks out over but Hanzo looks at him and says “Even though that’s the only way to end our contract, i cannot harm you in any way since i promised you never bring any harm to you.“ Damn Hanzos pride, he’s gonna have to suck it up being attached to this his scruffy cowman until he dies, it’ll only be a few decades. He can easily deal with that. Since he’s like a thousand years old.

McCree slowly comes to terms with being actually Haunted. He buys Garlic because he thinks it will help protect him against Hanzo but Hanzo laughs at him then puts an entire garlic bulb in his mouth and eats it as McCree watches on in horror.

Time passes. Hanzos annoying because he’s literally always watching McCree going “Ooo What’s this” “Ahhh” “What peculiar technology” and idk McCree shows him his TV and he spends hours watching it and it’s the only time McCree has been able to get away from him. Which he defiantly doesn’t spend jerking off to a certain pale blue demon with gorgeous glowing white eyes and rippling muscles.

McCree  contacts Zenyatta whos like a exorcist or something? Idk? He can’t help though. Lame.

Though to be far McCree is growing quite attached to this demon, What other human has their own demon? McCree 100% doesn’t look at Hanzo as Hanzo stares into the TV in awe thinking he’s cute. Hanzo on the otherhand is thrilled by this whole scenario because not only does he have a cute scruffy human but he has TV to watch.  


Bonus points if Hanzo is like the prince of the underworld and hes super strong so other paranormal creatures keep appearing around McCrees house and they try to harm him because he is absolutely covered in Hanzos scent. Hanzo protects him because if anything tries to harm his Jesse he will tear them to pieces.  

Also Hanzo gets mad jealous when McCree doesn’t pay him attention. Because he wants to be the only thing McCree thinks about.

But he likes to stay back and watch TV to learn about the human society. He likes to think he watches nature documentaries with McCree and one there’s an Alligator and McCree says something like “He would die if he ever came across one” and Hanzo replies “I wouldn’t let any overgrown lizard hurt you” and it’s the most loving thing McCree has ever heard him say.

Then he ruins it by saying “If anything is gonna eat you it’s gonna be me” and McCree doesn’t know if he means it in a literal way or in the bedroom way.

Also Hanzo is really over protective over his human because he’s been watching the news and there’s so many people dying and getting hurt so he usually watches over him from the shadows when he goes because no one can harm his precious cowboy

You finish this AU. Bonus points if Hanzo is a succubus so he needs to have sex to feed or something and because he’s bound to McCree he’s the only person who he can be intimate with. Just as long as they “kiss kiss fall in love”

Hello cuties!

I’m Sarah, 23 years old (I often forget how old I am and tell people I’m 21 :‘D Genius!). Others say I look like 17 and act like 29, or so. Nah, I feel like 14 :’D (Most of the time)

I’m a very openminded person and search a snail mail pal (new friend ûu) who is also openminded. I’ve many interests including photography, cooking (I’m a vegan ♥), writing own projects, fanfictions and rpg’s, watching documentaries, sitting in cafés and drinking too much coffee, take a walk in the nature, learning new things (at the moment I’m trying to learn Korean – a learning partner would be awesome!), gaming (like Stardew Valley, The Last of Us, Harvest Moon, Sims, Zombie-Games…), watching tv-shows like Hannibal, Bates Motel, Skam, American Horror Story, Teen Wolf, Sense8, Game of Thrones, How to get away with murder, Sherlock, Big Bang Theory, The Tudors and so on. I just started with K-Dramas and I L.O.V.E. it! Haha. I’m in love with anime/Manga since I was a little girl and some of my favorites are Haikyuu!!, Code Geass, Digimon, Beyblade, Dragonball Z, Wolfs Rain, Death Note and and and. I just started with My Hero Academia! ♥ Let me tell you that I’m totally into boys love and girls love. Ohohoho. (I ship them all! û_u)

Music! Oh lovelies, I love music! I’m addicted to kpop (BTS, GOT7, BigBang, Nell, Monsta x, Block B, Winner, SF9 …), but I’m not into girl groups this much :’) But I don’t just listen this this genre, I also like stuff like In This Moment, Samsas Traum (very good German group!), Fever Ray, Starset, Simon Curtis, PVRIS, Tagtraeumer, Lana Del Rey, Halsey, Being as an Ocean, The Amity Affliction… Music is my weakness!

Yeah, I’m a nerdy person I think.

I want to tell you that I’m a very moody and sensitive person (hsp and infp). I’m struggling with eating properly but I do my best. So, if you have such problems too, feel free to talk with me about it.
My life is pretty awesome at the moment, but I’ve many dreams I want to come true and for that I’m working hard.
I want to see the world, travel different countries and learn about cultures and humans. I love deep conversations and long midnight calls. Parallel Universes are one of my others weaknesses and creating new worlds is one of the things I’m doing on a daily base. I love languages and I love the German language. All the ways you can talk to people and how you can touch them.

So… I’m a little fangirl who loves deep conversations, parallel universes, music, writing, travelling, learning. I cry easily and laugh every day.

Maybe we can be friends? Sending cute letters to each other and build up something that lasts… longer then just a few month.

I’m waiting for you. ♥

Preferences: Snail mail ♥
Sex, Gender… it’s not important to me. I’m LGBT+ friendly and so should you, please.
I think the age from 16 to 28 works for me very well :)
It would be awesome if we had things in common, so we can cry together about new music, episodes, seasons, games… or ships!
I want to hear from your life, your thoughts, the world you’re living in. And this I give in return ♥
I also can help you with German and maybe we can improve our English… or Korean.
Openminded and with an open heart.

Important // Namjoon Scenario // fluff

A/N: My sister was talking about cuddling with Namjoon and somehow I got this from that lol. For fair warnings sake, there is a kind of panic/anxiety attack in this and a slight mention of self injury (but nothing graphic I promise!) I will put that section in italics so if you want to skip it you can, it won’t really hurt your understanding of the story if you don’t read it.  I hope you enjoy! 


Namjoon said that he would be done hours ago. Of course you understand that this is very important to him and of course you understand that ‘you can’t rush the process’ and that this process took a long time, which was okay, but you needed to talk to him. You even offered to leave, knowing that this track was important and even telling him so, but his response was nothing more than a simple:

“You’re important too.”

And he begged you with his eyes to stay, to keep him company, to cherish the time that you guys got together and not waste it. You readily agreed, knowing that you had been lonely in his absence and thinking that you would be content with just staring at the back of his head for a little while longer, he just had 'one more bit to go’.

He was wrong, and so were you.

'One more bit’ turned into another bit, which turned into another hour, him wanting perfection, but you were wanting comfort. A shoulder to lean on, someone to hug you and make you feel like things were going to be alright. Maybe you shouldn’t bother him with your stupid problems, them seeing completely irrelevant and mundane compared to the complexity of the issues that he was facing, but you were still hurt. You felt unimportant, like a burden, confused, and not knowing why. You felt like you were slowing him down and you knew that people finding out that he was friends with a fat girl would cause him problems, and you didn’t want that to happen. You were growing cold on the couch, both physically and mentally, your brain feeling like a fuzzy TV screen, and you really just wanted to go home and cry, trying to get his help was a mistake. You had grown way too dependent on him, and grown too attached. You had grown to love him more than a friend should, and you needed to get away from him before he found out. Maybe you could go home now, he didn’t even know that you were feeling this way or that you wanted to talk to him, it would be easy.

“Joon, I think I’m gonna go.” You stood to leave, not really trying to meet his confused gaze, and you shuffled towards him, pressing a light kiss to his cheek, mumbling a quick 'I love you’.

“Hey, you don’t have to go. I got distracted with this, I didn’t mean to ignore you. We can hang out now, if you want.” He reached out his hands and slid them down your arms, wrapping his hands loosely around your wrists with a bashful smile. You briefly considered staying again, but the tingles and jittery feelings of his hands on your squishy arms reminded you of your need to go. You smiled tiredly, your round cheeks protesting against the simple action, and shook your head.

“It’s fine, Joonie. I have to get up early for class tomorrow anyway. I’ll text you.” You weren’t sure if you lied or not, your mind was blank and you weren’t sure of anything at this point. You bent over and tugged your boots over your chubby calves and tugged your hoodie over your head, fluffing out your hair and offering a wave while you walked out the door, closing it with a small sigh. Everything would be fine.

~

Everything was not fine. As soon as you walked through the door to your apartment, you felt frustration build up in your chest, not understanding what was going on, what had went wrong to make you feel this way. It was nothing short of a miracle that you managed to keep it together during the walk home, the brisk night air gave you something to focus on. There wasn’t a distraction here. The silence of the apartment closed you in, made you feel like a caged animal with no where to go or hide. It told you that it knew everything, your shortcomings, your flaws, your fears and doubts, and it mocked them. You turned on music, trying to fill the silence with something, anything, but it was still there. You found yourself pacing, walking around in a circuit- in front of the silent TV, the window and door, behind the couch. You started digging, sinking your nails into the chubby skin of your forearms and picking and scratching, needing to fidget, needing to distract. You couldn’t think to turn on the TV, you couldn’t think to maybe call someone, like your sister or friend, and have them talk to you about unimportant tasks, distracting you from yourself. You were crying, you felt the tears streaming down your face but there was nothing you could do. You were trapped, a prisoner of your own mind.

~

You woke up the next morning in your bed, not remembering getting there but also remembering that you blacked out when things became too much, your mind being put on neutral and your body just going through the motions. You had no class today, you accidentally lied to Namjoon, and you were thankful and upset. Thankful, because you felt like an exhausted mess, and upset because there were no distractions. You sent a brief text to Namjoon, apologizing for your odd behavior and apologizing for being wrong about having class today. You shut your phone off without waiting for a response and chucked it somewhere on the couch next to you. You flipped on the TV, looking through the channels aimlessly until you settled on some nature documentary, it being the perfect background for you to zone back into your thoughts.

School was going well enough, your social life was lacking but then again it always has, nothing 'bad’ had really happened lately. You still felt like you were being too reliant on Namjoon, too clingy and needy, loving him too much, and you knew that you wanted to distance yourself from him a little bit, learn to deal with things on your own. You decided to turn your phone back on after you managed to rethink every single one of your life choices and regretted them in some way, needing the distraction and something to focus on, to keep you occupied; the nature documentary wasn’t cutting it. You received an influx of notifications, most from Namjoon, all asking you if you were upset, if you needed to talk, to all of which you just responded with a simple 'no’ and you started scrolling through Instagram, double-tapping every single post without even looking at the picture or reading the caption, the rhythmic tapping somehow calming you a little. You put your phone on 'do not disturb’, Namjoon had grown a little irritating, texting you constantly and trying to get you to respond, he was 'worried about you’ and saying that you 'seemed off’ and 'maybe you should talk to me’. Something that you wanted so badly yesterday now seemed terrifying, the thought of trying to voice your doubts and fears scaring you, knowing that they probably sounded ridiculous to someone who had to work so hard to get to the place he was, and wanting to deal with it on your own, feeling like he felt obligated to care and help. You were also afraid of him catching onto your feelings, feelings that definitely would not be reciprocated. You could handle it.

~

You hadn’t really talked to Namjoon in four or five days, you hadn’t really talked to anyone in four or five days, simply going back and forth to class, coming home and doing your work, and just trying to fall into a routine that kept you distracted. His texts slowed down but they never completely stopped, stating that he 'may be busy, but he still wanted to talk to you’ and that definitely sealed the deal on not telling him or bothering him, not wanting to get in the way when he was busy working and making something of himself, unlike you. You were proud of him and didn’t want to hold him back.

It went on like that for another week, you being numb to your feelings and missing Namjoon, but knowing that he was busy doing what he loved and that you were a distraction, something that could ruin his image. You texted him back occasionally so he wouldn’t think you were dead and he wouldn’t worry too much, telling him that you were fine and that nothing was wrong and that you needed space. Things slowly became a new version of normal, and you shoved your feelings into a box and put them on a high shelf in the back of your mind.

You just finished the last class of the week and you were ready to go home and relax to the best of your abilities, maybe watch a movie and take a nap or go to bed early, the thought speeding up your walk to your apartment door. Before you were even down the hall, you saw a familiar head of brown hair pacing by your door and your heart sank into your stomach, slight panic taking its place. You tried to ignore the feeling of relief that you felt, pretend it didn’t exist, at seeing him in person again after avoiding him for almost a week and a half. You considered turning around and high-tailing it to a nearby café, but seeing how worried and scared he looked, you felt guilty for even thinking about it. So you steeled your nerves and pushed your shoulders back and almost stalked down the hallway, a trick you learned when you were an unconfident and uncomfortable high school student: when you feel unconfident, fake confidence. A look of relief washed over his face when he saw you, and he looked like he was going to yank you into his arms, but at the last second he thought better of it.

“I’m sorry that it seems like I don’t appreciate you, but I do.” You furrowed your brows and cocked your head to the side, unlocking your door and pushing it open.

“I know you appreciate me. You have nothing to apologize for.” You gave him a soft smile and made to walk into your apartment but he gripped onto your hand and gently pulled you back, intertwining both of your hands in his while looking down at you with a small smile and raised brows.

“Then I want to spend time with you. I miss my best friend.” You bit your lip, the offer sounding tempting, but you felt that you should turn him down, say you didn’t feel well so you didn’t have to do it; no matter how tempting the proposition was. He felt your hesitance and his shoulders sagged along with his smile, and he dropped your hands and rubbed at the back of his neck sheepishly.

“We don’t have-”

“I want to. I miss you too.” You pulled him into your apartment and shut the door, watching with a smile as he ran over to your couch and flopped down on it, hugging a pillow to his chest. You sighed, your heart fluttering at his actions, and you realized how much you really missed him.

“I’m calling in a pizza, you pick a movie.”

~

“Come closer to me~. You’re never this far away.” The movie was playing in the background and you could tell that neither of you were really focusing on it, which wasn’t really surprising. You followed his request and scooted closer to him and he rested his head on your pillowy thighs, smiling contentedly when you moved to start playing with his hair by reflex. He had a dopey look on his face, he wouldn’t look away from you even if you were watching the movie, and you raised your brows at him in search of an explanation.

“You’re really beautiful, you know that?” You looked up to the ceiling and snorted, intent on hiding your rosy cheeks, believing that this was a joke and you didn’t want him to see how affected you were by it.

“Beautiful for a fat chick, right?” You clarified, and he clicked his tongue in a scolding tone while sitting up off your lap, turning his body to face you and you did the same.

“Why would you being fat put you on a different standard of beauty, Y/N?” You looked away and shrugged, not really having an answer other than the fact that you were told that your whole life. He slowly reached forward to tilt your head back towards him but you moved your head away from his palm and he settled for tucking your hair behind your ear and stroking your cheek with his knuckles.

“Why didn’t you talk to me for a week and a half? Why won’t you look at me?” You released a shaky sigh, trying to come up with a believable lie and failing, so you decided to settle for half-truths.

“You were busy.” It was a horrible lie. He was always busy and that’s never stopped you before. He gently grabbed your arms and flipped them palm up, looking at the scabs that you created on yourself from your anxiety a week ago. He swore under his breath and pulled your face to look at him, holding it there firmly. He didn’t speak for a while, trying to figure out what to say and how to say it you assumed, and you were preparing yourself for the worst.

“You know that I’m never too busy to talk to you and help you through your problems, Y/N.” You sighed and rolled your eyes, not believing him at all.

“I’m not going to put my stupid problems on your plate when you’re already working so hard.” You snapped, becoming uncomfortable because he was getting too close to the truth and he narrowed his eyes at you, studying your face and body language.

“You’re not a burden or a waste of time, Y/N.” Bingo.

“I… I never said I was-”

“You don’t have to say anything. I noticed. I notice you.” You were silent, terrified of the other possible things that he could have noticed. He continued.

“You have no idea of how hard it was for me to blatantly see you struggling and waiting for you to bring it up when I have the sneaking suspicion that you never will. But I kept waiting, believing that when you were really struggling and in pain that you would trust me enough to tell me, but I guess I was a little wrong.” You’re eyes widened at the notion of him thinking that you didn’t trust him, the notion sounding absolutely ridiculous. Of course you trusted Namjoon, he’s your best friend for a reason!

“The fact that you think I don’t trust you is almost laughable. There’s a reason why you’re the only person I even considered bringing up my problems to. There’s a reason why I let you touch my stomach and hips and trace your mindless doodles on them. There’s a reason I let you hold me at night when you can’t sleep, even though it makes me slightly uncomfortable to be so close to someone that means so much to me. I trust you.” You raked your nails through your hair, moving to get off the couch and he grabbed your hips and hauled you onto his lap, you automatically struggling, not wanting to be held so close to him when you were already struggling with your feelings.

“Then why won’t you trust me now? Why won’t you let me hold you now?” He had a sort of teasing lilt to his voice, something that confused you but you ignored. He had you straddling his lap, something you two had always done, but it felt different this time. The way his thumbs were rubbing small circles into your wide hips and the way his eyes, with a hint of a smile in them, peered into your own felt different this time. The feelings were overwhelming, the look in his eyes was equally overwhelming and hard to read, everything was overwhelming. So overwhelming that you needed to get away from it or you would do something that you would regret, like kissing him like some cliché movie moment, so you opted for the truth, which you were sure would scare him away.

“Because I like it too much! I like you too much!” You whined, just wanting out of the situation, watching his eyes widen and waiting for the inevitable.

But he laughed.

You groaned and he tugged your head into his shoulder, letting you hide your blushing face in his hoodie while holding the back of your head, with his other hand caressing your side gently, tracing every bump and swell that he found.

“Now was that so bad?” He sounded smug and your stomach did an uneasy flip, fearing that he was teasing you, mocking you and that he had been waiting for this moment for so long, to make fun of you and embarrass you, something you knew he wouldn’t do out of meanness, but it still scared you. He tried to tug your head out of his shoulder but you refused to be moved so he let you be and wrapped you in a hug, his arms sinking into your skin, something you knew he liked the feel of because of how much he told you about it, how often he called you warm and comfortable, like a fluffy and soft blanket.

“How long have you known?” You had turned your head so you wouldn’t be muffled, but it still came out rather hesitant and shy and he shivered beneath you, because your breath accidentally puffed against his neck. He was silent for a few moments, thinking.

“The guys probably knew way before you did because they were watching us like hawks, believing that we would eventually get together, so they noticed the small changes in your personality easily.” He paused, gathering his thoughts and you could imagine his face, eyebrows knotted together, lips pursed and eyes towards the ceiling in thought.

“And when Seokjin told me I had refused to believe him, calling him crazy because in my mind there was no possible way that you liked me back, not your dorky and too tall for his own good best friend. So I ignored it until I started to notice it too, the way you blushed when I touched your hips or played with your hair and you had the cutest little blushes and smiles when I treated you very gently, which gave me a huge confidence boost because I thought I was touching you wrong for the longest time.” You felt your face heat up, remembering the first time you felt his wandering hands mapping out the features on your face or rubbing at your side while he was holding you when he couldn’t sleep, remembering the way your heart leapt out of your chest in worry, afraid that he was going to find something that he didn’t like. You pulled away from his neck and met his eyes, noticing the little blush adorning his face and the shy smile tugging at his lips with his hair falling into his eyes, causing you to reach forward and gently comb it out of the way with your fingers. You blushed and slowly removed your hand but before you fully moved it he snagged it in his hand and pressed a small kiss to the inside of your wrist and refusing to meet your gaze afterwards, but not letting go of your hand.

“You said 'back’.”

“What do you mean?”

“You said 'liked me back’. So you like me too.” It was a statement more than anything but he nodded anyway and it was his turn to nestle his head into the space right above your heart with burning cheeks, and you felt the way his breath fanned against your left breast and you shivered as well, the feeling pleasant and comforting for some reason. Once he calmed down, he moved his face and pulled you closer to his body on your lap, not leaving a whisper of space between you two and your height difference was evened out, leaving your eyes level. He looked like he was going to kiss you, slowly moving his head forward and his gaze flickering to your lips every now and then, bit at the last breath of distance between your lips he grew shy and blushy, mumbling apologies with a breathy laugh while pulling away.

“I’m sorry. I’m too shy to kiss your lips right now. Can I kiss you here instead?” He pointed at your heart and you rolled your eyes, giggling nonetheless and nodding. He leaned down and pressed his lips against the skin and you felt your skin spark at the intimate contact, wondering how this kiss was better for him, but enjoying it anyway. He let his lips linger, almost avoiding your gaze when he pulled away.

“Why are you being so cute and shy? I’m not the first girl you’ve kissed.” You giggled, watching the tips of his ears grow a little red and he pouted, meeting your gaze.

“Yeah but it’s the first time I’ve kissed you.” He cringed at his words and swore under his breath, you groaned and lightly hit his shoulder.

“Way too cheesy, Joonie. Way too cheesy.”

22 Horror Movies for Snow Days *all available on Netflix right freakin' now!*

This photo from American Mary is just here for the thumbnail.

  1. American Mary

A promising surgical student drops out of school after a traumatic event and gets caught up in a black market for extreme body modification. Expect wit and gore but not jump scares. This is one of my personal favorites. Watch the trailer here.

 

2) The Taking of Deborah Logan

Do you like occult films but feel like you’ve seen everything the subgenre has to offer? Try The Taking of Deborah Logan. The film follows a group of students making a thesis documentary about Alzheimer’s. Naturally, things take a dark turn and we find that nothing is as it seems. This made my Best of 2014 list. Watch the trailer here.

 

3) The Damned

How do you destroy an entity that can’t be destroyed? Watch the trailer here.

 

4) Stitches

If you’re more into laughs and camp, you might like Stitches. In this slasher horror-comedy, a crude, sloppy clown comes back from the dead to exact revenge on the people who killed him during a freak accident at a children’s party. Watch the trailer here.

 

5) Cabin in the Woods

A group of friends goes on vacation to a cabin in the woods… AGAIN. Same old slasher movie you’ve seen a million times before? Uh, not quite. Find out who’s behind the scenes making this trip a complete nightmare. Nothing is what it seems at this cabin… and nothing is a coincidence. Another one of my personal favorites- a movie specifically for horror fans who like to poke fun at horror archetypes. Watch the trailer here.

 

6) Scream

A masked killer stalks and kills the high schoolers of a small town. A group of friends realizes that in order to survive they must follow the rules of typical horror movies.  It might sound generic, but it’s very self-aware and witty. If there is ever a chance for me to recommend Scream, I will. This is one of my favorites of all time (yeah, seriously!) Watch the trailer here.

 

7) Oculus

A young woman seeks to exonerate her brother after he is released from a mental rehabilitation center, where he had been kept since childhood for allegedly murdering his father. What does she attempt to prove? That a mirror was responsible for the strange events and murders that took place in the homes of its owners, including their own. It’s really great but be warned the it has a non-linear narrative film structure, meaning scenes jump back and forth between present day and flashbacks. This made my Best of 2014 list. Watch the trailer here.

 

8) You’re Next

Another film that takes the slasher genre and turns it on its head. A well-to-do family comes together for a weekend to celebrate the mother’s and father’s anniversary. What’s supposed to be a fun celebration turns into a nightmare when the family realizes they are being hunted down. Find out why when you check out this unique, surprisingly funny, gory slasher. This made my Best of 2013 list with a tie for first place. Watch the trailer here.

 

9) The House of the Devil

A babysitter realizes her clients have a strange, dark secret. This is a slow-paced film with a 70s or 80s look. Not everyone will be into that, but it’s really good if you make it through the slow parts. Watch the trailer here.

 

10) Contracted

A young woman contracts an STD… or so she thinks. Watch the trailer here.

 

11) The Innkeepers

During a hotel’s final days of being open, two employees seek to reveal its haunted past. Along the way, they experience some strange, creepy events. This film is made by Ti West, the same person who made The House of the Devil. It’s also slow-paced, but it’s good if you make it through the slow parts. This movie is pretty funny, so it makes the slow parts more bearable. Watch the trailer here.

 

12) All the Boys Love Mandy Lane

A group of high school friends invites the nerd-turned-hottie to a weekend getaway at a summer house. Of course, things go wrong and people end up dead but nothing is as it seems. Watch the trailer here.

 

13) Witching and Bitching

A group of thieves are trapped in a town full of witches by a coven. This film is hilarious, witty, and tons of fun. It’s in Spanish, but don’t let subtitles scare you away from great movies! This movie made my Best of 2014 list. Watch the trailer here.

 

14) Dumplings

Women seeking a more youthful look turn to a rather unsavory remedy to do the trick. This movie is foreign, so there will be subtitles. It will creep you out and it will gross you out. Watch the trailer here.

 

15) We Are What We Are

This slow-paced, gothic-style film follows a family preparing for a secret ritual. The last 5 minutes are worth the build-up. Watch the trailer here.

 

16) Proxy

If you’re looking for a more cerebral type of movie, give Proxy a try. Essentially, the film follows three parents who have lost children. It’s gory, unique, and definitely keeps you guessing. You’ll think you have it all figured out, but you’ll probably be wrong. This made my Best of 2014 list. Watch the trailer here.

 

17) The Snowtown Murders

Based on a true story, a teenager falls in with his mother’s new boyfriend and his group of neighborhood watchmen who use murder and torture as a means of protecting their neighborhood. It’s pretty graphic and violent, so it won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but Snowtown really is worth the watch. Watch the trailer here.

 

18) Devil

After The Village and The Happening, did you lose all faith in M. Night Shyamalan? Sit down and watch Devil, a murder mystery that takes place almost completely in a stuck elevator. It’s creepy and fast-paced. Watch the trailer here.

 

19) Alyce Kills

Alyce accidentally (“accidentally?”) kills her friend and subsequently delves into a world of sex, drugs, and murder. It’s cerebral, it’s badass. Watch the trailer here.

20) Kill List

A former hitman takes on a new job with a promise of a big payoff. It seems like a normal job at first, but things get darker and darker. It builds up suspense, so there aren’t really many jump scares. Watch the trailer here.

21) The Conspiracy

Friends making a documentary about conspiracy theories decide to infiltrate the ritualistic gathering of a secret society. Watch the trailer here

22) The Haunting

This haunted house-themed remake is only on this list because it’s the first horror movie I ever saw in a theater and because I didn’t want to end the list at 21. I have a soft spot in my heart for it. Watch the trailer here.

here is an extension of my jenna hcs that i mention in the latest chapter of LMLS!! (a special thanks to the actual light of my life @actualbird for helping!!!) 

  • jenna loves everything with cryptozoology/paranormal!!  her browser history is full of shady links, grainy images/videos in abandoned forums, and recommended documentaries to watch on netflix. she probably has a super ridiculous cork board in her room with new jersey specific lore
  • jenna once mapped out all the ley lines in town instead of doing her homework. she discovers there’s a worrying pentagram of 7/11s
  • she’s always been super into investigating things, especially rumors, and unfortunately high school can only offer that in a pretty hurtful way. this is a really healthy way for jenna to soothe that need to snoop and also have something interesting to talk to her friends about at lunch!!!
  • everyone is super supportive and tries to help her with her research. one day chloe set a book down at jenna’s desk with a quiet “i saw this and thought you might like it. or something” and jenna was Shocked. christine doesn’t really like the violent/sad stories but her and brooke will listen to jenna go on about the ‘nicer’ cryptids like nessie because it’s cool!!!
  • she’s that tumblr post that is like “pshh, you think the MOON is real?” when hearing someone talk about the moon landing. she’s mostly into cryptids and paranormal sightings, but she LOVES conspiracy theories.
  • upon jeremy’s suggestion, her and michael end up talking a lot about this stuff! michael loves learning and gets bored at school so he ends up watching every kind of random documentary and special in his free time. he likes nature/science based ones so when jenna mentions an old bigfoot special she watched over the weekend to him michael knows exactly which one she’s talking about and they start bonding over it!!
  • after feeling more comfortable about herself and her interests, jenna starts a paranormal club senior year!!! it’s her and michael at first, but rich joins pretty soon after because school meetings are the same time as jake’s chess club and he wants to try and fuck a ghost (jake gives him permission to fuck a ghost because that would be “sweet dude holy shit”) and this club lasts all throughout their college years too. it’s the BEST
  • this branches off to rich making “ghostfuckers” shirts that jenna immediately bans. he shows up one night wearing it with the sleeves torn off because IT’S NOT A SHIRT NOW JEN LMAO. jenna looks to michael for support but he’s wearing the shirt under his hoodie. #betrayal
  • rich can’t play any instruments, but christine gave him a kazoo once and he always has it in his pocket. he proceeds to walk around an abandoned house trying to figure out their theme song. it’s absolutely terrible
  • jenna is in charge, michael is in charge of audio/video, and rich happily punches walls and crawls into small holes no one else wants to. jeremy, a honorary member, is in rich’s van still holding a flashlight for dear life with the doors locked because FUCK GHOSTS. jake sits in the back at unsafe locations, finishing his third suduko book since they got there
  • jeremy eventually joins in on investigations but he’s a scaredy cat and one night his flashlight dies. running low on supplies, they frantically loop like 18 glowsticks around his arms so he’ll stop yelling in the dark
  • jenna is the calm one that talks to the ghosts, while rich always tries to fight them. michael makes faces in the view finder and goes “oh” when it picks up on another possible face. he then proceeds to run the fuck away
  • jenna drags michael and rich out in the middle of the night for impromptu sleepovers whenever she finds new material and can’t wait until school to share it with everyone!! how she knows when michael is sleeping at jeremy’s or rich is hanging with jake is scary but no one questions it.
  • when they’re in college they plan road trips to further locations and jenna gets into interviewing witnesses and locals in her free time!! she starts an online journal and everyone is super impressed at how good it looks!! michael helps with coding/photography and rich is great at researching obscure cryptids between his busy schedule. jenna’s always really considerate of other people’s stories and it just shows how much she’s grown since junior year and….. it’s good. They Love Her

anonymous asked:

Dunno if you’re accepting prompts, but I haven’t really watched the show to write anything, but could you write something of raven and Chelsea before they get together? Like getting jealous, small touches, and just them dancing around each other wondering if the other feels the same? Thanks! Amazing writing by the way!


Hi there, thanks for the prompt! :) Sorry it took a while.


It started out innocently enough, just a girl making sure her best friend got home safely after a blind date with a stranger from the Internet. Chelsea would put the kids to bed, pour herself a glass of wine, and then find a nature documentary to run in the background while she did a little housework or searched through the Chicago job listings, though she’d rarely find anything she felt remotely qualified for. Her interpretive dance major had been great for her personal growth and self-discovery, just like her parents had said it’d be, but not for very much else in the long run. If she was feeling really restless, some nights she’d do all three by the time Raven walked in around 10:30.

“How’d it go?” Chelsea would ask. And Raven would collapse on the couch beside her, take a sip from Chelsea’s forgotten glass of wine, and tell her about all the weird things her date had done during dinner or at the club or, the worst one so far, at the bowling alley. The documentary on Chelsea’s computer would inevitably be changed to reruns of the Real Housewives, although this always went unnoticed by her until the night’s story was finished, Raven was tucked into her side half-asleep, and the episode was already halfway over.
