Summary: When you’re struggling to study for you final Law exam, you decide to seek help from your unusually handsome professor…
Word Count: 1,516, Warnings: Swearing, NSFW, Oral Sex, Orgasm Denial, Unprotected Sex (wrap it before you tap it, yo)
A/N: This is a Professor!Reid x Student!Reader so if you’re like grossed out by that then I urge you to skip this fic, but other than that yeah & also I know that Reid doesn’t have a bachelor’s in Law or any affiliation with it, from what we’ve seen but I just thought it would be kinda fun.
You sat on your bed, books sprawled out in every corner as you attempted to take in the extensive information. You were going to take your final exam tomorrow and although you felt prepared, last minute studying was always a great option. Your professor had told you in your last session with him that you could find him on campus in his office if you needed help. “What the heck,” you sighed out, knowing that a little help couldn’t hurt.
You walked into his office and found him sitting amongst masses of essays and books. He took a moment to look up from marking, “Y/N?” he dragged his glasses off of his face, placing it on top of his book. “Hi. I was wondering if I could take you up on that study offer?” you asked setting down your things in the antique chair opposite his desk. “Of course, please sit,” he replied enthusiastically which was unusual considering it was almost 2 in the morning, “Would you like some water?” he inquired, you smiled up at the man before giving a short nod.
A term I’d always found intriguing, mostly because it’s such an unusual word. It’s a concept from mathematics and computer science but can be applied more generally—not that it often is. Basically, it’s an operation that, no matter how many times you do it, you’ll still get the same result, at least without doing other operations in between. A classic example would be view_your_bank_balance being idempotent, and withdraw_1000 not being idempotent.
Two years ago, I abruptly lost my ability to speak.
I was battling myalgic encephalomyelitis, commonly known as chronic fatigue syndrome, a debilitating multi-system disease that, among other things, impairs the body’s metabolic functions.
One day I was walking around talking and eating just like a healthy
person; the next I was bedridden, unable to speak or eat solid food.
I became so severely ill, I was able to function relatively well with
the disease. I lived on my own and worked from home, and I used Apple’s
virtual assistant, Siri, every day. I was able to speak loudly enough
for it to register my words, and I often enlisted its help: I had it
play soothing music when I was laid up in bed fighting a particularly
intense surge of symptoms; I used it to call a family member when I needed help cooking and doing laundry; I even used it to research my disease when I was first diagnosed.
as I became sicker, I soon realized my voice was losing its sonority.
Siri was having trouble recognizing my words — an unusually indicative
barometer of my deteriorating health. Read more
