up is the new down

I’m assuming everyone here has seen those posts about Draco and Harry in the middle of kissing or being intimate or what have you, and one of them pulls back to say “you’re so gay”…. The intention in these posts is always for the ironic humour, because “we’re all here for the Drarry and of course they’re fucking gay! What world do you live on?”

I feel like I’ve just been hit by a bus, but what if that was the point? 

Thanks to The Daily Prophet, there are rumours about Harry’s sexuality everywhere, and Draco’s Next Big Thing is to determine if The Boy Wonder is interested in outies instead of/as well as innies so he can humiliate Harry.

He makes a point of flouncing by Harry in the hallways, of being extra provocative when occasion calls for it (read: always), and saying inappropriately sexual things. Harry, of course, is bothered by it, but mostly really confused, and the only real effect Draco’s prancing around has is everyone at school talking about how gay he probably is, which is… well. Not wrong, per se, but not the goal of this little exercise at all.

I imagine Draco would probably get really frustrated after weeks of no progress with his plans. Then one night, he happens across Harry on his way back to the Gryffindor tower after detention, and he’s just simmering in his frustration, boiling over in how Harry has foiled his plans every single time, and it’s just not fair because… because… well, it’s just not fair!

The next thing Draco knows, he’s pinning Harry to the wall and aggressively kissing the living daylights out of him. To his immense surprise–and unexpected delight!–Potter’s just as vehement about sticking his tongue down Draco’s throat as he is down Harry’s.

It’s so unexpected, he forgets why he’s doing this in the first place: gets carried away trying to memorize the exact feeling of the roof of Harry’s mouth, of being kissed senseless. It takes him a minute to get his higher functions back, but when he does, he wrenches himself away. They’re both flushed and panting; Harry’s eyes are so bright he looks almost fevered, and as he watches, Harry licks his lips. Draco wants to groan because that’s obscene. Obscene and entirely intentional, and all he wants to do is swoop back in, kiss that cunning out of Harry’s head until all he can do is pant and beg–

But he has a point: Draco’s here for a reason, he’s something to say, and by Merlin is he going to have the last word if it kills him, so he leans in, gets extra close to Harry’s ear, revels in the way the boy shivers, and breathes:

“You’re so gay.”

And then he walks away, as hard as it is, as much as he doesn’t want to, he leaves Potter dishevelled and kiss-bruised against the wall.

“Bisexual, actually,” he hears Potter say when he’s a few steps away. He probably wasn’t meant to hear it, but he snorts anyway, doesn’t turn.

“Tell yourself whatever you like, you’re so gay for me, Potter.”

Potter doesn’t refute that.

ok this my list of hoe tips and life tips in general

- can’t get ur pussy smooth?? always prickly?? shave diagonally and horizontally instead of up and down, and always use a new blade

- can’t get ur pussy soft?? shave with hair conditioner and massage it in for like 30 seconds before. after u shave, massage with baby oil, and lotion after a shower

- EXFOLIATE. exfoliating is the key to life. mix used coffee grounds with a moisturizing oil (olive or coconut is best). rub that shit all over your legs before you shave until ur hands start to feel funny

- dry feet?? bih me too. rub a fuck ton of regular lotion (or foot cream if u fancy, even Vaseline works) all over your feet and put double socks (or fuzzy socks) on before bed. yass

- this one is the most basic but pls drink water. it’ll clear ur skin, flush out your kidneys to prevent bladder infections, and ur pussy gonna be wet asf

- salt, fat, caffeine, dairy, etc. r gonna make u taste all funky down there. fruits, veggies, and anything w high water content is gonna make u taste fresh/sweet

- smoking and drinking also gonna make u taste funky. and smoking is especially bad for u, so put out the cig babe

- using soap on ur pussy gonna fuck up ur pH bad. the vagina is a self cleaning device, and all u need is a really soft washcloth (or even a cotton shirt) and some water, let ur body do ur thing

- if ur used to wearing tampons and that’s what u find comfortable, use a menstrual cup! very sanitary and will save u a TON of money in the long run

- want a natural lip plumper?? mix a lil bit of cinnamon and honey, and gently rub it into your lips w a soft toothbrush n leave it on for a min. slather on some chapstick n ur plump n soft

- BUY A VIBRATOR. please do it. it will save ur fucking life

- cotton panties or no panties sis. ur kitty needs to breathe and cotton/no panties will prevent bacterial and fungal infection

- got hair on ur face? got rough skin? GURL SHAVE IT! wash your face as normal and pat dry, gently run a clean razor over any areas (cheeks, chin, neck). tone and moisturize like a motherfucker. smooth!

- pubic hair is healthy and good and keeps ur vag clean! don’t shave it unless YOU want to, don’t leave that decision up to ur nasty man

- allow urself junk in moderation. it’ll make making healthy choices easier if u allow urself a little treat every once in a while

- a simple equation for a good meal: vegetable + grain/carb, protein

- do ur fucking homework and do it on time

- rubbing a little bit of petroleum jelly on ur pressure points before spraying perfume will make it last longer

- hair holds onto scents v easily. wanna smell like a goddess????,,, spritz that hair

- kat von d everlasting liquid lipstick is blowjob proof. get messy n be on point!

- urban decay all nighter setting spray is gonna save ur life. it’ll keep ur shit in place when u getting dicked, if u cryin, chokin on dick, w/e u like to do

- if ur having trouble getting wet even after sufficient foreplay, a little bit of water based lube does WONDERS. also won’t deteriorate condoms (oil) or get gritty (silicone)

- need to stretch out ur shoes?? fill two ziploc bags with water and put them in ur shoes. put shoes in the freezer until water freezes solid, and dethaw with a hairdryer. especially effective on leather!

- having problems deepthroating? make sure ur throat is in line with ur mouth, if it’s not the dick won’t go down

- can’t deepthroat at all? cover ur teeth with ur top lip and press ur tongue to the roof of ur mouth while he thrusts. 10/10!

- communication w ur partner during sex will make it a trillion million times more satisfying

- frizzy hair? put conditioner on the tips of your hair (nape of the neck and down) and shampoo right on ur scalp. volumizes without frizzing!

- this one kinda weird but don’t hold ur pee unless u wanna mean bladder infection/UTI

- pee after u masturbate please. u never know what can shimmy up ur urethra, even when ur playin w the little man in the sailboat

- keep a pair of spare glasses with u for when ur contacts dry out. lifesaver

- always keep extra undies, an extra shirt, makeup remover, moisturizer, and comfy shoes in ur car/bag if u can fit all of it

- apply dry shampoo the night before ur gonna need it. it’ll soak up the oil before it sits on ur hair. reapply in the morning n style accordingly

- apple cider vinegar mixed with water works as a good toner if u ain’t got no moneyyyy

- castor oil on ur brows and lashes every night will make them thicker and longer. even just one day will help (bc they will be shiny and moisturized)

ill probs add onto this when i think of more!

@sapphicgeek: So, I want to tell you all what happened in the store today. It’s probably the single greatest moment I have ever experienced working here. After the usual Saturday rush, a teenage girl comes in. She looks absolutely terrified and when I greet her she jumped. She starts going up and down the new release wall and the poor thing looks completely overwhelmed. So, I make my way over to her and ask if I can help her find anything. She quietly admits that she was looking for Supergirl. We’re walking to the Super area when I ask if she watches the show. She smiles a bit and nods. Says Alex is her favorite. I mention that I’m a huge #Sanvers shipper and the poor thing just breaks down in tears. I’m trying to figure out what the hell I did to upset her. She’s crying and I’m freaking out. After a minute or so, everything clicks. I’m staring down a crying baby gay. One who was having some big issues. I tell her that it was hard for me when I wanted to come out too. She finally stops crying and asks me if it gets easier.  We sit at the coffee bar and talked for a while. She tells me that after seeing it all over Tumblr she binged SG. And when she got to Alex’s coming out arc was when things hit her. She tells me that she’s just wanted to kill herself for so long and that she had tried but just made herself sick. But as Alex’s arc continued she said she realized that she started to see that she could be happy, that she could be loved. She didn’t want to die anymore. For the first time, she didn’t want to die because she got to see Alex be amazing and be queer. She said she came to the store hoping to find something to get her through the hiatus, so she wouldn’t fall back in depression. She had no idea gay comic characters were a thing, but wanted to try. I tell her about Batwoman, Midnighter, and Renee Montoya. I pull out my starters which are Batwoman: Elegy, Midnighter, and Gotham Central. I also dug up a copy of the Adventures of Supergirl, just to get her through. She had enough cash for one and was torn on which to get. She decides on Batwoman and asks if I can hold the rest for a while.  I was having an internal crisis at that time, because this kid was me years ago. I was barely holding off my own tears. I ended up buying the other 3 for her and I make her promise me that in 10 years she’ll help another queer kid. So, I’m out 60 bucks and I cried in the bathroom for an hour but it was damn worth it. 
So, @TheCWSupergirl @SupergirlStaff @chy_leigh and @florianalima the work you do means so much to us. Thank you. So, so, much.

If I had told you eight years ago that America would reverse a great recession, reboot our auto industry, and unleash the longest stretch of job creation in our history; if I had told you that we would open up a new chapter with the Cuban people, shut down Iran’s weapons program without firing a shot; if I had told you that we would win marriage equality and secure the right to health insurance for another 20 million of our fellow citizens: if I had told you all that, you might’ve said that we had set our sights a little too high.

But that’s what we did.

one of scorpius and albus’ many first kisses in many infinite universes.

It was like breathing.

It just so happened that Scorpius had beautiful and soft platinum blond hair, irresistible already as it was, but of course it was getting long. The extra length caused one strand in particular to hang loosely in front of his face as he studied the history of magic textbook on the desk before him.

It was driving Albus mad.

Scorpius hadn’t even made an attempt to adjust it; he was much too focused on his studies. He was usually so perfect, so neat, that this out of place strand made Albus incredibly uneasy. This lock of hair, of course, led to Scorpius Malfoy’s bright ocean eyes that were on the brink of being silver. Now Albus was distracted by the whole of him. Scorpius Malfoy.

It happened quickly.

Albus couldn’t take it anymore, so in the moment, he took it upon himself to gently tuck the loose strand of hair behind his ear. Scorpius tensed up at the sudden contact, turning his head towards his friend.

It shouldn’t have been a big deal.

They were just mates after all; a mate looking after another by quickly fixing his gorgeously soft hair that he had been staring at for several minutes prior to adjusting it and nearly getting lost in those beautiful eyes that he had grown so accustomed to over the years. Just platonic; friendly stuff.

It took them both by surprise.

Albus had just been looking so intently at him, so it was only natural that Scorpius happened to look back. So what if they both stared for just a bit too long? It’s not like they needed words to communicate after all. Everyone they knew joked about how they had a true psychic connection. But if they did, then why didn’t Albus see it coming?

It was a kiss.

It had taken Albus a bit to realize that the mysterious force bringing him down to his friend’s lips was Scorpius’s hands around his collar. It started so quick, but as it happened, it was so slow, but firm, and with meaning. At first, Albus hadn’t even realized it was happening until he felt the smoothness of Scorpius’s lips glide against his. His eyes closed.

It was strawberries.

Strawberries. A fruit he had never particularly associated with the blonde boy until this moment. It was almost like muggle lip balm, like the kind his sister Lily would always make him smell whenever she got a new flavor. But this one was incredibly wonderful, and fresh, and innocent.

It was like breathing.

Perhaps this was why Albus was so surprised when he had to break away from him a breath. Though, when he did this, he didn’t distance himself far from Scorpius. “Sorry,” he felt as just a whisper on his lips, though he hadn’t opened his eyes yet. When he did, he was met with Scorpius’s own, which were energized but unsure. This alarmed him. “Don’t be,” he responded so simply, yet so surely, looking down to his lips, pink and swollen. He did that. And as he pulled him back in, he was determined to do it again.

It was like breathing.

Random thoughts on YOI

Imagine if the anime had really shown us how multilingual Yuri, Victor and the other characters are. As someone who speaks 3 languages, it would have been AMAZING to see an anime that really shows the ups and downs of the language barriers in new relationships. 

Just picture yourself Victor jumping from Russian to English and Japanese with ease, while Yuri is a nervous wreck when he needs to speak anything apart from his native tongue. :,3 

But as a filmmaker I do understand how difficult this would have been writing and casting wise. There is a reason why we only got a few words/phraces in Russian/English/Thai/Spanish/etc ((but French still managed to get in several sentences because French)). It would have been lovely thou.

EDIT: People have told me that it´s basically canon that Victor does not speak Japanese, and that him and Yuri actually speak English when they are together. I do not doubt this (I had my suspicions that this was the case), but that is not what I was referring to with this post. 

What I want is for them to ACTUALLY SPEAK ENGLISH! I want to HEAR the characters change languages. I want to HEAR Yuri getting used to talking English. I want to HEAR Victor speak Russian when he talks to Yurio. I do not want to “imagine that they are speaking English” - I want to experience it! 

I know I know: “Too much work”, “Main demographic is Japanese” and “suspension of disbelief”, but that is still what I would have loved to see/hear. 

New episode of light,
come taste the wax on my heels.
Taste all the forest fires I danced by.
New circle of sun, my body’s ache
is a healing kind,
not a hurting.
Don’t mistake this kiss for love. This year, 
my lips bleed only in golden: 
fake, sometimes,
valuable, always.
I celebrate in bouts of spit and curse,
it’s the only language that gives my throat
the freedom it deserves, the space it grew up
fighting for.
New turn of galaxy,
you are every man who ever bit down too hard
and made my blood seem like his
and I am
many pounds of grown woman and
you could learn a thing or two about
being afraid.

Oh My! Tumblr Wabbits!

OMG! I cannot believe that there are now over 800 of you.  I just celebrated 700 followers just 5 days ago!  You guys are multiplying like rabbits.  It’s amazing to me and I love it! Thank you all so much for following and supporting me!  As my to do list is pretty long right now and that I still have other celebrations to finish up, I’m not going to add anything new onto my plate right now.  Keep an eye out for the new fics I will have coming out this week as well as a few other little surprises along the way. :)
