The War Boys call him “lucky,” to be favored by the Imperator.

The Sisters call him her “support/partner.”

Furiosa calls him “reliable.”

Max thinks the correct term they’re looking for is “furniture.”

But all things considered, he’s been used for worse before. He doesn’t mind being of use to Furiosa.

I said I wanted to draw a series of doodles of Furiosa using Max as various forms of furniture mostly to lean upon…and him making bemused grumpy faces.

Perhaps, after all, romance did not come into one’s life with pomp and blare, like a gay knight riding down; perhaps it crept to one’s side like an old friend through quiet ways; perhaps it revealed itself in seeming prose, until some sudden shaft of illumination flung athwart its pages betrayed the rhythm and the music, perhaps … perhaps … love unfolded naturally out of a beautiful friendship, as a golden-hearted rose slipping from its green sheath. - Anne of Avonlea

Essential Crystal List
This is by no means a complete list, just what I’ve got information on at the moment

I’ve included the gems (grouped by color) followed by their color variants (if no color variant is mentioned refer to category color) and keywords for their healing/magical uses.

Use this for what you want. It originally came up when I was discussing gemsonas with a friend but I’m also a stonecaster wiccan.

A/N: I’m tremendously sorry for all the tardiness!! University has started so it’s all gotten pretty hectic.. to make it to to you, I’ve decided this is gonna be a two chapter fic! The next chapter will be probably uploaded next week tho, as I have yet to finish it. Also, this isn’t some of my best work.. it really isn’t…so please bear with me. Sorry for any grammar/spelling errors!


The world seemed to work in odd, surprising ways. For every person existed another, tied together by an inconspicuous red string of fate. Those, no one could see, though they had no reason to. On each person’s wrist lay imprinted a compass, working restlessly all hour of every day of every year, hoping for the bearers’ attention to glance their way just at the right moment, just at the right second the string’s ends could intertwine.

At least half of the population was a result of this, of having been aware at the time their half crossed their path. They were, mostly, the married and the bearers of children.

Some say it destiny proven to be true. Yet in the back of most people’s minds flashed a thought very possible. That is, while they say that, one way or another, pairs will have more than one chance to meet, there are those who never stop wondering.

sgfgluke  asked:

“If I kiss you once it’ll only make me want a hundred more.” Luke?

insp.

Recently, you and Luke had been making a habit of ending up on the lumpy couches in the various green rooms prior to any shows. It was a versatile piece of furniture; you both could become comfortably tangled together during a nap, say upright to listen to Luke strum a few random songs, or simply laughing away from a few gentle touches against the ribcage where each of you were ticklish.

“Luke, seriously I’ll end up kicking you if you keep tickling me.” Your threat was hardly intimidating since your cheeks were flushed pink from laughter, and your hair a bit frayed around from scrambling to get out of his reach.  Luke smiled at the response, wiggling his fingers in the air as though he was about to continue, but surprising you he merely engulfed his long frame on top of you, leaving you laughing when he went limp. “I can’t breathe.” You feigned, fingers finding their way into his wavy locks of blonde hair. 

“That’s tough, babe.” You rolled your eyes as he stifled a lame chuckle against your shoulder. He rolled his face onto the side of his cheek, glancing upwards at you, his smile ever evident. “I can’t think of someone who’s cheeks look as good as yours when you’re blushing like that.” 

“I don’t like looking like a cherry, you know? It’s kind of embarrassing.” Luke scoffed indignantly, and used a hand to cup your face, thumb gliding slowly along skin he enjoyed kissing. 

“I don’t know, I think it’s cute. Makes me want to kiss you.” You glanced down at the familiar boy, half of your mouth curved into a smile at the gentleness of his voice. “In fact,” Luke began, propping himself up on his elbows, as you did nothing to stop the close proximity he began to put between your lips and his. Though they never met, as the door cascaded open and the tour manager called out that there was fifteen minutes until showtime. 

“Smooth.” You giggled as Luke pouted from the interruption. He then rolled his eyes, about to push himself right back towards your lips, before you now became an obstacle by pushing your hands against his shoulders. “No, stop. If I kiss you once it’ll only make me want a hundred more.” Luke’s eyes seemed to sparkle at the the prospect, but he didn’t push further, instead sitting upright on the couch beside you. 

“That doesn’t sound like a bad thing.” He admitted with a smile and a shrug. The two of you cast your eyes to the now open doorframe as Calum and Michael passed by telling Luke to hurry and save it for later. “I’m gonna see my girl in the crowd tonight, right?” 

“Of course.” You smiled as you turned to look back at him. Having not expected Luke to be as close to you as expected, you nearly stuttered backwards, but his hand caught you and tug you forward for the long kiss he felt he needed before the show starts.

“Sorry to make you want a hundred more, but I’ll pay up afterwards, angel.” 

RWBY OC NAMES AND TEAM NAMES

Once upon a time I got seriously into the idea of creating a RWBY OC…Then I lost the momentum and didn’t really do much with her…The only thing for certain was I wanted her to be called Tawny and i wanted her to be owl faunus…but NOT a tawny owl and she’d get really annoyed if you assumed she was a tawny owl from her name.

But anywho, long story short i did a crap ton of looking up names and creating team names I thought sounded cool when coming up with this character and I thought I’d share my little ‘database’ of names and team names for anyone making RWBY OC’s so my time gathering all this wasn’t a complete waste.

****NOTE - If anyone wanted to suggest more names I’d be happy to add em to the list.

Once the final bell rang, Zach took you to the spot. It was a spectacular scenery as it overlooked the woods with various shades of green depending on where the sunlight hit it. You thought you were on top of the world. Zach and you sat in his car with the top down, taking in the fresh air. You didn’t know what to start off with first. Should you talk about the kiss and how embarrassed you were, or should you talk about how much time the two of you have spent together and how hurt you were that he downplayed it.

“I used to come here all the time when I think that shooting around in the gym didn’t help,” Zach confessed during your long silence.

“Really?” you asked intrigued, “What do you have to think about, you have everything, Zach,”

Word had gotten around quickly that you and Theodore Nott were no longer seeing each other. You had expected, at first, Draco to have said at least something to you by now, but he had been surprisingly quiet about the whole ordeal.

Maybe it was for the better that you hadn’t seen him in a couple of days - it’s easier to clear your head of a person and a situation if they’re not constantly around you.

You had skipped your first lesson and decided to walk around the Hogwarts grounds for further clarity over everything, opting to spend time alone rather than have any kind of company.

It was late April, and the trees surrounding the grassy fields were vibrant with colour. Various shades of green contrasted with the bright blue of the sky above, in which the occasional owl flew by.

You sat down on the outskirts of the Black Lake, watching the water ripple softly in the warm breeze. Taking off your jumper, you rested it on your knees and simply sat for a while, contemplating all that had happened to you since September last year.

What with the arranged marriage, and all the pressure that came with it, you had been so caught up in all the emotions that you hadn’t considered anyone else except yourself.

Feeling somewhat at peace beside the lake, you decided to think about everything rationally.

***

The platinum blonde proved harder to find that you originally expected. After clearing your head of all the madness of the past few months, you’d come to the conclusion that, whilst Draco had hurt you - Merlin, had he hurt you - now that you thought about it, you must have hurt him a lot too.

You had almost given up trying to find the Slytherin prince when you finally caught a glimpse of him walking down the hallway, possibly towards his next class.

“Draco!” You called out, your pace picking up as you tried to catch up with the boy. At the sound of your voice, you saw Draco waver, before he paused, turning around to face you as you reached him.

“What?” He asked. His tone was indifferent, but you could almost see his emotions swimming through his eyes.

“I… I need to talk to you. It’s important,” you said, trying to avoid his gaze. He didn’t say anything for a while, and you almost wished you hadn’t called him back.

“Talk then.” You nodded slightly, twiddling your thumbs as you tried to think of how to word what you wanted to say.

“Okay… okay. So, I’ve been thinking things over, and I’ve realised that… well, I’ve been overreacting? To a lot of things. And… well, I’m not going to say you haven’t hurt me, but I will say that I was so caught up on that, that I didn’t realise I was hurting you too. So I’d just like to say I’m sorry. Because I am. I never wanted to hurt you. I mean, sure, we never got along well, but I would never want to purposely hurt you. The thing is, I’ve realised that we’re just toxic together. We’re so used to hating on each other, and bringing each other down, that this… arrangement… doesn’t work well for us.”

You paused for a moment, risking a glance up at Draco, who was silent, waiting for you to continue. “I guess what I’m trying to say is - and this is only if you want to - we should maybe try again? But this time, we actually try. And that means me too. Because I know I haven’t been doing so. If we take things slowly, step by step, we might have a chance at being at least friends. Because… well, I know I gave the ring back, but I do actually want to make my parents proud. And if that means marrying you, well, then I’ll do it. And… maybe, if you really think about it, this arrangement might not be such a bad thing after all. We might be able to save this, and work it out. I know I’d much rather be marrying someone I can at least converse with, rather than someone I hate.”

Draco still hadn’t said anything. You bit your lip nervously, your hands shaking. Was he mad?

“Draco?” You said his name softly, “Please. Say something.”

“You really think we can work this out?” He started, “You think we can actually go through with this marriage without tearing each other apart? Do you honestly believe we can?”

You nodded, “Yes, I do.” He seemed to be deep in thought as you answered, which made you anxious. You hoped against hope that he would accept your offer.

“Okay. Okay, we can try and make this work,” Draco said with just a hint of a smile. You were on cloud nine, feeling so much happier than you had in months, “Really? Oh Merlin! I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to convince you.”

Draco took a step forward, reaching out to hold your hips to pull you against him, “You’ve convinced me, love.”

You smiled up at him, hardly containing your happiness at being given a second chance.

“Are we friends now then?” Draco asked, running his hands up and down the curve of your waist. “I’d like to be,” you replied, tearing into the blue-grey eyes you had admittedly grown to love.

“Can we be friends that kiss?” Draco asked with a cheeky grin. “That just depends,” you teased. “On what?” “Are you ‘friends that kiss’ with anyone else?” “Not that I know of. Are you?” You shook your head, “Nope. Just with you.”

Draco smiled - a real, genuine smile - as he leant down to press his lips to yours, capturing you in a passionate kiss.

Distracted by his lips on yours, you didn’t even realise that Draco had slipped the ring back onto your finger, sparkling and shining where it belonged.

Starting over may possibly be the best thing for you both. Maybe, with any hope, you’d be able to make the marriage work.

Not for your parents this time, but for you.

sansapotter  asked:

jon x sansa brown please :)

SOOO this kind of came out differently than I expected but I hope you like it!! And thank you for sending a prompt in <3 

+ colour au prompts + 


It’s a Monday morning when he stumbles into her coffee shop with a dark purpling bruise along his jawline and a white bandage covering the bridge of his nose. Sansa has seen a lot of strange people during the morning coffee rush – mostly disheveled and grumpy adults and occasionally the bleary-eyed student who hasn’t slept in twenty-four hours – but he’s certainly new. Sansa keeps him in her peripheral throughout the half hour he spends in her shop. She tries to tell herself it’s because he looks dodgy, but another part of her brain – the part that’s been single for over a year – traitorously tells her it’s because he’s got sinfully full lips.

She doesn’t expect to see him again after he drags himself back out into the world, but Thursday morning, he wanders back in. This time, the bruise is mottled with various shades of green and yellow. The bandage is gone from his nose but there’s a deep scabbed over gash across it. He still looks like shit, but better. Sansa is itching to ask him what happened when he comes up to the register and orders a large black coffee.

“Name?” she asks, pen poised over the coffee cup. He blinks back at her like he doesn’t understand her question and she has to refrain from laughing. “Your name. You do have one, don’t you?”

“Uh… my name,” he repeats slowly, but then his eyes widen in understanding. “Oh, it’s – uh, it’s Jon. Sorry,” he adds sheepishly, lifting his hand to rub at the back of his neck, but the action causes him to wince and he drops it by his side. Interesting, Sansa can’t help but note to herself.

She smiles softly, waves his apology off and writes Jon in her neatest cursive.

It’s really hard to get him out of her head. Sansa even dreams of curly black hair, deep grey eyes and those unfairly tantalising lips. Men who look like him should not have lips like that. It’s really cruel.

Jon is back again on Monday, and this time, his bottom lip is split and there’s ugly red bruising around his left eye. Add all of that with last week’s previous injuries and he looks utterly terrifying. People in the queue, who are normally so tired they can barely muster up the energy to trudge forward, give him a wide berth, like they’re afraid he might suddenly focus his fury on them. But he doesn’t look angry or violent. There’s a softness in his grey eyes and around the curve of his lips when he catches her eye and smiles. It makes Sansa refuse to believe it. She really shouldn’t be so quick to give a stranger the benefit of the doubt, especially not after sweet-talking Joffrey turned out to be such an arrogant, horrible wanker, but something about Jon is different.

When he reaches the register, Sansa gives him a slow once-over, which has him flushing from the neck to the tips of his ears. “How are you, Jon?” she asks, because she doesn’t know what else to say. She doesn’t want to tell him he looks like shit in case whatever’s happening is really bad nor does she want to outright ask him in case she’s wrong and he’s the bad thing that’s happening.

Jon looks surprised that she remembers his name and flushes even more. “I’m okay. Um, tired. How are you…” He squints at her nametag, which is a bit mangled from her accidentally throwing it in the washing machine a couple months earlier. “Sorsa?”

Surprising herself, she giggles at his poor attempt. “It’s Sansa. But close. Large black?”

He nods with a small smile.

When Jon shows up the following Monday with even more injuries, Sansa decides she needs to do something subtle because she’s positive he’s not the type of guy to get into bar brawls on the weekends for the hell of it. If he fights someone, there has to be a good, honourable reason for it. But in a distant part of her brain, she can hear her older brother chiding her for being so trusting of a man she barely knows, except Sansa does know him. After last Monday, he came in every day of that week, sometimes in the mornings and sometimes in the afternoons, but he would always spend time just talking to her. He’s courteous and sweet, a little bit awkward and kind of horrible with women, but it’s endearing rather than annoying. There’s no way someone like Jon could ever be the instigator of a fight unless provoked.

Jon returns again the next afternoon sporting his new injury – a slight limp – and Sansa asks Jeyne to cover for her as she grabs him by the forearm and drags him into the staff room. She sits him down and starts speaking without preamble.

“I need to know if I should be worried about you or if I should be worried about me.” When he only blinks back at her dumbly, Sansa sighs in frustration. “Jon, I know you don’t really know me very well but if something bad is happening, I can… I don’t know. I can help you.”

He inclines his head as if to study her, a mixture of bemusement and fondness on his face, and it kind of unsettles Sansa because she doesn’t really know how to handle that. No one’s ever looked at her like that before, not even Joffrey, and it’s hard to process that it’s coming from this virtual stranger.

“You’re worried about me?” Jon questions, but when she answers his question with a scowl, he chuckles softly. “Sorry. I guess I look a bit worrying, don’t I?”

“You could say that,” she deadpans, eyes roving over his injuries pointedly.

Jon laughs. “Okay, so this is going to be really anticlimactic for you but I’m apart of an amateur fighting ring.”

Oh.

“That was definitely not on my list.”

“What list?” he asks, smiling more broadly now, the amusement even more pronounced in those grey eyes.

Sansa huffs. “I might’ve made a list of all the possible reasons why you could be getting so frequently injured.”

Jon laughs and the sound is bright and warm, which has the effect of making Sansa smile in return in spite of the reddening of her cheeks and her sudden need to run away. She instead opts for a subject change. “So you’re in a fight club?”

“No,” he responds instantly, rolling his eyes slightly. “A fight club is just some asinine way for emotionally repressed guys to get their rocks off.”

Sansa can’t help the smirk unfurling on her lips because this is clearly a sore subject for him. “Okay, so what’s the difference?”

“I’m sponsored by a bar and I fight on the weekends for some extra cash,” Jon answers her. “It’s – yeah, it’s not ideal and you’re not the first person to come to me about it, but my mum died when I was seventeen and I needed the money.”

“Wait, you’ve been doing this since you were seventeen? Is that – that doesn’t sound legal, Jon!”

He shrugs as nonchalantly as he can. “So maybe I fibbed a bit about my age. I’m twenty-two now and I’ve only got a semester left of my degree so it’ll be over soon.”

She frowns slightly and reaches over to touch his hand. “That’s terrible. This shouldn’t be something you have to do just to afford university.”

“It’s okay, Sansa,” Jon says, curling his hand over hers. “I’m pretty good.” He cracks a half-smile. “You should see the other guys.”

She’s about to tell him off for the really poor joke when Jeyne pokes her head through the door. “Hate to break up the socially inept flirting you two do but Sans, I need you back out there. I’m dying.”

Both Sansa and Jon flush from head to toe. He’s the first to reach the door after Jeyne disappears and Sansa is right behind him. But before she can slip through, Jon puts his hand out to block her in. “Um, you should – if you want that is, come see me this weekend?”

Sansa scrunches up her nose in distaste. “I don’t know if I want to see you get beaten up, Jon.”

His face falls for a moment and he removes his hand from the door frame. “Yeah, of course. That’s… That’s normal.” He gives her a faint smile and leaves her standing there for a few more seconds before she’s racing up to catch up to him.

“But I’ll go,” she quickly assures him. “Only the once, okay? I need to make sure you’re telling the truth after all.”

Jon beams back at her and she considers going to every single match he has just to make him this happy – which she realises is an absurd thing to want for a man she hardly knows.

“Great. I’ll text you the details!”

And that’s how Jeyne and her find themselves standing in a smelly gym with loud, intimidating looking men and women, who are shouting and laughing boisterously. The stench of alcohol is everywhere and Sansa links her arm through Jeyne’s just to feel safer. “This is a bad idea,” she whispers. “This is a really bad idea. I don’t even know him.”

She can’t really see her as her eyes are focused on the people around them but she hears the exasperation in Jeyne’s voice and she can guess that her best friend is rolling her eyes. “Uhuh, but pining after him and worrying about him is also a really bad idea.”

“I wasn’t –”

“Yeah, okay, Sans,” Jeyne chuckles a bit sardonically. “You two were practically just making heart eyes at each other over the counter for three weeks straight. Please don’t insult my above average intelligence.”

Sansa snorts and bumps her hip against Jeyne’s. “Your ego is unbecoming.”

“Piss off.”

The familiar bickering allows Sansa to forget for awhile where she is and why she’s actually here, but abruptly, a tinny voice cuts across the conversation, announcing the match will start in ten minutes. Sansa grips Jeyne even tighter as they near the front, staring at the weird metallic cage built around the boxing ring.

“Uh, that’s not normal, is it?”

“I thought you said he was a boxer.”

“He said he was a fighter but… cage fighting?”

A burly man beside her whose copper hair could give hers a run for its money laughs loudly. “It’s MMA fighting, ladies.”

“What is that?” Jeyne says with a mixture of apprehension and annoyance.

“Mixed martial arts,” he answers, still smiling in amusement, but then his smile changes and she thinks he’s trying to look charming. “So if you don’t know what this is, what are two lovely girls such as yourselves doing here?”

“Hey mate, back off,” Jeyne says with a scowl. “I’m taken.” She isn’t. “And this one here’s future baby daddy is one of those MMA fighters.”

The man stares squarely at Sansa with such focus it really begins to unnerve her, but then just like before, he bursts out into a booming laugh. “Does that mean you’re Jon’s little coffee shop girl?”

“I wouldn’t call myself little,” she says, bristling; although she realises a little belatedly that she doesn’t correct the man on his mistake that she’s somehow involved with Jon.

“My apologies,” he says, but he doesn’t sound apologetic at all. “I’m Tormund,” he continues, thrusting out a hand for her to shake, which she does with some wariness. “I’m his trainer. That prick hasn’t stopped talking about you for weeks now. Bloody pathetic, honestly, but I can see why.”

“Oh my god, right?” Jeyne exclaims, suddenly forgetting her previous irritation with this man. “She’s been the same way! You’re lucky though. You haven’t had to watch them flirt. It’s like watching a cat trying to swim.”

Tormund laughs again but her glare cuts him off quite quickly.

“Both of you shut it or I swear –”

Her threat is rudely interrupted when the tinny voice returns, announcing the arrival of the two contenders. There’s a sudden increase in jeers and shouts. It’s a lot to take in, and a part of her wonders what on earth she’s doing here. Sansa is a good girl. She works at a coffee shop so her parents don’t have to pay for her accommodation and living costs. She’s in her final year of Primary Education because she adores children. Her last two boyfriends were straight-laced boys from well-to-do families. She doesn’t do things like this.

But a small voice reminds her that both her exes also cheated on her so maybe straight-laced and well-to-do shouldn’t be categories she bases her next boyfriend on. Maybe a boy from the wrong side of the tracks, who fights in a cage to put himself through school, is exactly what she should be looking for.

Pushing down the nerves fluttering in her stomach, Sansa cranes her neck to watch as Jon is escorted into the ring. His upper torso is bare and it makes her mouth go dry. She’s only ever seen him in hoodies. She knew he must have had a nice body considering how well his broad shoulders strained against his clothes, but to see it on display in front of her is quite frankly exhilarating in a way she’d never tell Jeyne about.

“Is your boy going to win?” Jeyne asks Tormund with a sceptical raise of her brow, voicing the question that’s been bouncing around in Sansa’s head all week. “Because that other dude looks like he could lift a car without breaking a sweat.”

She turns her head to catch sight of Jon’s opponent and her mouth gapes at the sheer size of him. Oh god, he’s going to die, she instantly thinks, and a sudden wave of panic and nausea sweeps through her body.

“Don’t be so quick to judge. He may look big but they are in the same weight class for a reason,” Tormund answers, smirking. This is basically gibberish to her because she doesn’t know what a weight class is, but when he adds, “Jon’s got moves,” Sansa is determined to believe him.

Twenty minutes into the fight and Jon’s moves have gotten him knocked square in the face and another one in the stomach. He’s bleeding from his forehead, but his eyes are focused. It’s surreal to see this side of him. She may have only known him for a couple of weeks, but the Jon she met is sweet, shy and endearingly awkward. This Jon is anything but awkward. His movements are precise, lithe and calculated. Where the other man has size and power, Jon has speed and brains. He doesn’t just aim his punches anywhere. He knows exactly where he wants to hit, delivers it at the most opportune moment and capitalises quickly at the moment of contact. It’s the most riveting thing Sansa’s ever watched – and she’s been to the West End multiple times.

“Your husband is amazing,” her friend whispers, awe in her voice.

Sansa rolls her eyes, even though there’s a small proud smile on her lips. “He’s not my husband. But yeah, yeah he’s great.”

Jeyne snorts, and thankfully, doesn’t say anything else, leaving her to watch the fight without interruption.

They’re nearing the end of the last round, which, Tormund explains, means that the judges will decide on the winner. She doesn’t know how that works either because how can anyone tell who’s winning at this point? They both seem fairly matched; although Sansa completely thinks Jon is the better fighter. He’s graceful and makes it look like a real sport, whereas the other man makes it look like a bar brawl.

Suddenly, Jon spins and delivers a kick to the man’s head, knocking him backwards onto the ground, where he swiftly begins to drive forward with punch after punch. The referee finally has to pull Jon away from the man, and then everyone’s screaming and trying to push forward.

“Wait, what just happened!” Sansa yells to Tormund, who is one of those people trying to get forward.

He looks back at Sansa, eyes taking her in as if for the first time and then his hand is around her wrist, pulling her with him. “Your boyfriend just won, Coffee Shop Girl. You should go say hi.”

Sansa doesn’t get a chance to protest or even process what’s happening until Tormund is shouting to someone and she’s being dragged up onto the stage. Jon is getting cleaned up, but when he catches sight of her, he instantly jumps to his feet and sways rather violently from the sudden movement. Sansa races forward to catch him.

“Don’t move,” she chides, frowning at his goofy grin. “Are you concussed? Why are you looking at me like that?”

Jon steps back from her grasps with that strange smile still on his face. “You actually came.”

“I told you I would,” she says, rolling her eyes, but her heart is beating a mile a minute. She doesn’t even know how someone could have this much of an effect on her. “Seriously, Jon, are you okay?”

“And you’re worried about me,” he continues on, his smile growing wider and wider.

“Of course I’m worried! I saw you get punched in the head!” she half-shouts at him because now she’s a little frustrated and he’s being really, really irritating.

That wipes the smile instantly from his face as his hands go to her shoulders. “Sansa, I am fine, you know? This isn’t really the worst that’s ever happened to me in the ring. I’m okay.”

“Yeah, well,” she shrugs. “You don’t look okay.” She gestures to his forehead where the blood’s dried.

The smile he offers her now is more hesitant and shy and it reminds her of the Jon she knows from the coffee shop. “I’m sorry. I’m just really glad you came. I know you didn’t want to and this is probably not your scene but… it means a lot to me.”

“It’s not,” Sansa agrees, smiling. “But you were amazing tonight.”

“Thanks,” he says, cheeks flushed.

“But Jon?” she presses on, swallowing the fear lodged inside her throat. “This is the last time I’m coming to one of these.” His face falls and she can’t help laughing softly. “Next time, just ask me out on a normal date, okay? Less bloody.”

The relief on his face makes her heart swell with so much warmth and affection for this man.

“Okay, next time, a normal date. I promise.”

Sansa’s cheeks are aching from smiling so much, but she doesn’t care. This, right here with Jon, is perfect. Even with the crowd still screaming behind them; even with Jon bloodied and bruised and sweaty. Nothing matters but the fact that Jon is the first man to ever make her feel like she’s the only thing of actual importance in his world. It might not be true, but it feels true.

“What?” Jon asks, chuckling. “You’re the one staring at me this time.”

Instead of answering, Sansa throws her arms around his neck and presses her lips firmly against his. He easily reciprocates by matching her movements and sliding his hands around her waist, gripping tight to her hips. When she scrapes her teeth against his lower lip, she feels him groan into her mouth, tugging her tightly until every part of her body is pressed into his. Sansa doesn’t quite know how long they stand there, but they both instantly jump apart as someone clears their throat pointedly at them.

“As happy as I am that you two figured things out,” Jeyne begins. “Your husband’s trainer keeps hitting on me and if he doesn’t stop, I’m going to kill him and I don’t think Jon would want that.”

He stares at her best friend for a long moment. “Husband?”

“Ugh,” Sansa groans. “Don’t encourage her.”

NAC: Props to you for colouring kid!Lily's eyes the colour they SHOULD be, something the movie editors/casting team failed to do. They could at least have got someone with blue eyes to match Dan's.

omgggggg this is my #1 movie fail. i totally understand that they couldn’t get Dan’s eyes green, for various reasons. but. Harry having his mother’s eyes was such a HUGE part of the series, and when the young actress had these big BROWN eyes… killing me over here. if they can make Ralph Ralph Fiennes ’ nose disappear for five movies, they can make that girl have Dan Radcliffe’s eyes for three fucking seconds. ~ an unreasonably upset Taiga

why is green tea so good for you???

Amazing properties of green tea 🍵:

- green tea contains caffeine but not as much as coffee, enough to give you energy without being jittery 🐝

- it has been proven to have fat burning properties (up to 17% increased fat oxidation) = metabolism booster!

- antioxidants in green tea may lower your risk of cancer. Multiple studies have shown that green tea drinkers have a lower risk of various types of cancer🍵

- green tea inhibits the growth of bacteria and some viruses (studies suggests that the chemical antioxidant “catechin” in tea can destroy bacteria and viruses that cause throat infections, dental caries and other dental conditions) ☄️

- some studies show that green tea leads to increased weight loss. It is particularly effective at reducing the dangerous abdominal fat🌞

- green tea can improve skin care and reduce wrinkles🌙

- green tea can be used as an appetite suppressant 🌺
