-If an Alpha is angry the reason why is most likely related to their mate, or a challenge that they failed in some way
-If an Alpha is mad at their mate they tend to act cold and distant, but it only lasts for a short while before their Omega’s distress gets to them and they can’t resist the urge to comfort and soothe their mate and they end up cuddling and talking things out peacefully
-An Alpha being mad at themselves for some reason, walking around mumbling and growling quietly and slamming things and low-key avoiding their mate because they don’t want their Omega to be upset with them too. But eventually their mate will catch onto their distress and coax the Alpha into talking about it and letting all the pent up frustration out, reassuring them that they are not a failure and soothing them until they are completely relaxed again
-An Alpha who is legitimately angry at another Alpha won’t hesitate to bare their teeth and try to assert dominance, if that doesn’t have the desired effect it usually results in a very physical fight that nobody would want to get in the middle of
-An Omega purposefully getting their Alpha really mad because they want the Alpha to snap and dominate them, to treat them roughly because they are always so incredibly gentle that its kind of boring
-Alphas are told from an early age that they should get into the habit of running or working out to try and work off their natural aggressive energy in a healthy way
-Being ridiculously protective of their pregnant Omega and snapping at anyone who appears to be even slightly threatening
-Being looked down upon by anyone gets an Alpha so aggravated that they will become obsessed with trying to prove themselves by any means necessary
-A teenage Alpha brawling with another Alpha because the other Alpha was trying to hit on their Omega who was obviously already marked and claimed…the Alpha ends up all bloody and bruised but their Omega gives them kisses and holds ice on the swelling so it was all worth it to them
-An Alpha being really really annoyed because their Omega isn’t paying any attention to them so they drop their entire body weight onto the Omega while they are sitting on the couch, the Alpha is so heavy that the Omega can’t escape, and the Alpha takes the opportunity to ramble obnoxiously until the Omega is just as annoyed as they had been earlier…because Alphas can be very childish
New digs for Oscar Perry! Finally had the time and materials to put this together. So far he’s rather suspicious of this strange new world but I hope he’ll enjoy it once he settles in.
Excavator clay with some sand and soil mixed in. Caves are supported by stones, old hides, a piece of tupperware, bits from the hardware store…. whatever worked! He’s got six hides in total including two humid ones. A couple go down to the bottom of the tank, allowing for the use of a UTH, while the rest of the heating is supplied by a CHE overhead. UV is also provided.
Can I just say how much… I really, really love writing Rhys and Mor? And maybe just take two seconds to chat about how underrated their relationship is? The more I write Rhys, the more I keep finding myself in these scenes with him coming to her, leaning on her, using her for help and advice whether he knows it or not. I think Rhys loves her so, so much. And I honestly believe that out of everyone in the IC, if Mor were to die it would hit him harder than anyone else (save Feyre, of course). They’ve grown up together, and he’s fought his entire life to give her independence and freedom, and I think Mor returns the favor when he lands on her balcony after the Mountain, and he sort of just… lets her keep being this shepherd in his life, helping him keep from fully unraveling. I think Cassian and Azriel aren’t the only ones who feel her endless warmth and spirit. Say what you will about the Cazigan dynamic in the books and who has to “shield” whom from Mor’s infectious spirit, but if you think about it, Rhys is exempt from that protection. He just gets to enjoy Mor for all she is, how selfless and supportive and encouraging, and she too gets to be there for her cousin who has empowered her and given her status and strength over her family, these things that make her into a queen. They’re friends. Really, really good friends and I think there is so much love between them that we don’t get to see a lot of in ACOMAF, but if SJM were to ever write the book as Rhys or elaborate on it, I think we’d be surprised just how much goes on between the two of them and how much he confides in her. And I think given how much they’ve gone through together… that’s just, I don’t know, really really special and I love it so much. It’s nice to see that even when the entire world and family around them falls apart, there is still this lovely little kernal of them left to lean on and it never goes away.
-Betas tend to be pretty level headed so it’s rare for one to get legitimately mad about something
-Betas anger easily though if their Omega friends are ever being bothered too much, they are extremely protective in these friendships
-People often make snide remarks to Betas about how useless their dynamic is, and even if the Beta is very aware of how important their role is, they still get annoyed by it
-A young Beta confessing their love to their Omega friend and being crushed when the Omega tells them that their parents arranged an Alpha for them. The Beta becomes mad, not necessarily at the Omega but at life itself, they shout at the Omega anyway though because their mind is in a flurry of hurt and anger and rejection, and eventually they just storm off and leave the Omega alone afterwards even if all they want is to be closer
-A Beta perfectly copying an Alpha’s growl so they can intimidate people who bother them
-A Beta who despises being looked down upon, especially in their place of employment, so they aggressively strive to outdo their Alpha co-workers everyday
-If a Beta is really furious with someone they like to employ the coping method of writing a long, strongly worded, letter…and then lighting it on fire and watching it burn
-An angry Beta curled up in a nest with their Omega best friend, binge eating pizza and venting about their problems between mouthfuls as the Omega just nods along
-Betas always being bitter about being compared to their Alpha and Omega siblings
-Betas becoming social workers because the abuse some Alphas inflict on Omegas makes them too angry to sit back and do nothing
Hey, it was really nice meeting you
last night. Maybe we can grab lunch tomorrow? This is Cisco btw.
The text pops up on your phone screen
as you’re scrolling through social media. You’ve been lounging in bed
on this rainy Saturday morning planning on doing absolutely nothing
for the rest of the day but binge watch The Walking Dead and order
thai take out later. You just stare at the text for a minute,
You definitely didn’t give your number
to anyone last night because all you did yesterday was pull a double
shift at Jitters because they’ve been short staffed lately. A long
day at work usually left you looking a bit wrecked so you’re damn
sure there wasn’t anyone slipping their digits your way either.
No it's fine, they're not my type. Ha. I can appreciate a beautiful person without having to watch their entire back catalogue of work y'know.
You don't have time for this!
Relax, it's just one film.
It's one film now, but then there's the three hours of Google Image Searches afterwards!
Nonsense! I just want to make sure I'm immune.
It's fine. I can look at them and feel nothing.
I feel nothing.
Why have you spent 45 minutes looking at their pictures?
I feel nothing.
You're imagining lazy Sunday morning cuddles with you as the little spoon! This is it. You're gone.
I feel nothing. Maybe I am incapable of love now.
*eyeroll* Batten down the hatches, lads, she's gonna go - in three... two... one...
Here we go!
They really are beautiful! Like oh my god look at them it's like they were carved by angels!!! Oh no no no no no!!! Not this! This can't be happening! Oh no! I thought I was immune! Why you play me this way, Brain?! WHY DIDN'T YOU STOP ME BEFORE IT WAS TOO LATE?!?!?
we got the houseclean for the landlord to do a walkthru
(mostly the husband, while I was sleeping, he has evil insomnia, but now our house is so pretty?)
and then we got a realtor
and actually went and looked at a house
with a horror movie room, istg
it made me think of that twitter spiel that’s been wandering around, with the lady who said she suddenly realized she was every dumb white lady in every horror movie ever and all because of some roses and a porcelain tub? I mean, we actively noticed the creepy, but still
for one thing the place didn’t smell right
the realtor was all, dogs maybe?
but I’ve been in scuzzy pet stores and shelters, I’ve known people who had sick pets or sick people and got behind with the pets
it was not dogs
(speaking of, they just had the dogs in the backyard, running around while no one was home, so not only is that not safe for the dogs, we the people viewing the house couldn’t actually look at the back of the house, or the foundation, or the yard, or the fence, because free-range unknown dogs jumping about.)
the smell also wasn’t, you know, oh we forgot to take the trash out and it sat for a week, or oops we should’ve shampooed the rugs this was
unpleasant and yet completely unidentifiable
(I mean, I don’t think it was a dead body smell, to judge from previous experience with roadkill and that one time we got squirrels in the walls when I was a kid? but it was not a good thing either)
and one of the bedrooms was locked
including the one from the bathroom, like, have you ever seen a bedroom-to-bathroom door that is lockable from inside the bedroom rather than the bathroom?
and no one was home, but both doors were locked so like … how did the owner get in there?
why would you lock a door when you have an appointment for a realtor to show your house so people have to be able to walk through it?
Prompt: Charles believes you can’t be in love with him because he lacks one thing almost every man has - legs. So when you finally realize it makes him super insecure, you set off to show him that his imperfection is indeed quite beautiful.
Set during Xmen Apocalypse - in a world where Alex Summers never really died! Yay!
When you were old enough to move away you did. Birmingham was suffocating. Everywhere you went people were aware that you were a Shelby. The only girl of the lot of boys. People walked on eggshells around you, afraid to say the wrong thing or do the wrong thing and meet the wrath of your brothers. So when you turned 19 you packed your bags and moved to London.
Tommy wouldn’t have sister of his living on the streets and he was quick to negotiate a deal with you. Find a place in London and he would buy it. You knew the catch was that whenever he had business in London he would be by but you were being stubborn so you accepted the offer. You moved to Camden Town, far away from Small Heath.
