very good but so hard to color!

“I grew up in a poor neighborhood on the north side of the city. There was a lot of violence. But I didn’t feel the color of my skin very much back then. Even the whites in my neighborhood were poor. We all lived in the same way and everyone seemed equal. My mother always encouraged me to study hard so I could leave the neighborhood. She worked as a maid for a rich family, and she wanted me to live a life like theirs. Eventually I graduated college, got a good job, and moved to a wealthier neighborhood in the south part of the city. I do feel safer— just like I imagined. But I never expected to feel so unwelcome. It can be hard to make friends. I’ve been called names. I’m made to feel the color of my skin more than I ever did growing up.”

Hi💕💕💕💕 I just started with my Bullet journal,any ideas of what spreads i can do? Other than the normal monthly and weekly logs

Ok I’m really sorry this was supposed to just be a simple list of some pages for a bullet journal and it turned into this


Bujo basics (see more bujo masterposts at the bottom):

Here’s some basic bujo advice that I can’t back up because I’ve never had one:

  1. use pencil first if you’re trying our a new format (and just in general because you never know when you’ll make mistakes).
  2. stick to a limited color palette (preferably lighter colors) if your worried about how it will look.
  3. be realistic about how much you can do; if you’re not a good artist, don’t make the focus point of your spread a huge elaborate drawing.
  4. don’t beat yourself up over mistakes you make. only you have to see your bujo so it’s really not the end of the world if you mess up a bit.

Notebooks:

Just a tip: there are 4 main kinds of notebooks - lined, dotted, gridded, and blank. I only linked dotted notebooks above, but those brands also made other notebooks so they shouldn’t be too hard to find.

  1. lined notebooks are good for when your bujo is writing-heavy (so if it’s also functioning as a journal).
  2. dotted notebooks are probably what you see most often because they’re so versatile. they’re great for both writing and more doodle heavy bujos (but if you have trouble writing in a straight line they probably aren’t for you).
  3. gridded notebooks are great if your a perfectionist because they make it super easy to draw straight lines.
  4. blank notebooks are what you want to use if your bujo will be very art focused.

Pens:

these are just some pens that are popular in the studyblr community, but you can literally use any pen (or pencil) that you want. any pens that you already have in you house are fine, so please don’t go out and buy any of these just for your bujo!

EXTRA: you can check my supplies tag and there should be some swatches like this

More supplies:

here are some stationary websites & brands!

Brands:

if you don’t want to go through all those  links, here are the most popular places to get stationary!

Spreads:

you’ll generally have four types of spreads: daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly. people have a combination of the for (daily and monthly; weekly and monthly; weekly, monthly, and yearly).

  • EXTRA: some resolutions that you can track in your daily log

Page ideas (what the ask was really about):

the above is where bullet journals get even more customizable. you can add whatever pages you want to your bujo, usually in front or behind your weekly spreads.

An extra section:

some specifics about what you can add to your bujo if you want it to look great

THE LAYERS CHEAT SHEET PART TWO
(PART ONE HERE)

Once again, I’m no expert- there are things about these layers I probably haven’t covered, so please try them out for yourself!

Layers 1-7 help your contrast. They are usually a pair of the former two groups I went over in my last post.

1. OVERLAY:  Helps your contrast by boosting your lights and darks, while the more mid tone pixels aren’t affected as much. It does this based on the layers beneath it.  “Screens” the lights, “multiplies” the darks. 
2. SOFT LIGHT:  Similar to overlay, but a “softer” effect. You can think of soft light as more transparent.
3. HARD LIGHT: You can look at hard light as an intense version of overlay, with much brighter colors and a much less transparent look.
4. VIVID LIGHT:  This is the heavy metal version of overlay- think of it similar to color dodge and color burn.  Very intense colors, good for finding interesting lighting and color combos.
5. LINEAR LIGHT:  Crazy amounts of contrast and color is added here, even more than vivid light.  so heavy metal 
6. PIN LIGHT:  This one is interesting because besides it also being an intense contrast layer, it can add random noise to the active layer.  Apparently this is a combo of the lighten blend mode on the light pixels and darken on the dark pixels, but the noise effect is what makes it really interesting imo.
7. HARD MIX:  You will turn this mode on and be like “no” but it is actually adjusting its fill will reveal another overlay-ish type layer.  It throws the colors on the active layer towards a more primary color such as blue, or magenta. 
_____
8. DIFFERENCE: This will invert your colors, taking into account the layers below. If colors are very close, they will be black.
9. EXCLUSION: This also inverts your colors, taking into account the layers below. If colors are very close, they are grey. Exclusion and difference are layers that would be good for graphic pieces, I haven’t really gotten used to incorporating them in my painting workflow.
10. SUBTRACT: Similar to the above layers, but more intense. You will notice that the darker you make your active layer with Difference, exclusion, and subtract, the lighter and more transparent looking the result will be.
11. DIVIDE:  Divide, however, usually results in crazy highlights that are pretty opaque unless the layer is fairly light, and then it will begin to go transparent. 
___
12. HUE:  Makes the lower layer take on the hue of the active layer.
13. SATURATION:  The lower layers take on the saturation of the active layer.
14. COLOR:  The lower layers take on the color of the active layer.
15. LUMINOSITY:  The lower layers take on the luminosity, or brightness, of the active layer.


Once again, I’m no expert, but I hope this helps. Thanks guys!

brightbluedot  asked:

Hello! I have a question about that "race" post. I'm American, I'd never heard of this before, and it made me think, so, thanks! So, is the term "racism", being derived from "race", seen as equally bad? Thanks for your time - also your icon is hella cute and every time I think of the name "Thomas McGraw" I just. melt. so I appreciate seeing it on my dash :)

Hello to you, and thank you so much :) I’ll try to answer to your question as best as I can, forgive me if my english is not perfect! I’m not an expert on such things so if some of my followers wants to weigh in, feel welcome!

So, as it was said in that post, in Italy and more generally in Europe, we don’t use the word race anymore. It’s considered highly offensive because it recalls fascist and nazi laws, and after WWII people just stopped saying the word, preferring to use “ethnicity” instead. Today, the only people who still use it are neo-nazis and fascist parties who promote racial supremacy.

That said, we do use the term racism, but it’s used in a different way than in the USA: racism here is xenophobia + racism. The discrimination comes more from your nationality. For example, a person from eastern europe, even if technically white, is going to face discrimination for the mere fact that they are eastern european. This is often tied to the ability to speak the language, to class and religion.

I’m not saying that racism based on skin colour is not a problem in Italy, it obviously is. For example, last week an italian Senator took a picture of a black man who was using an overboard in the street (he took it without his consent) and posted it on facebook, basically insulting him for being an immigrant and stealing our jobs or sth. But turns out, the man in the picture was italian, born in italy and with italian citizenship, with a very good job. So the guy was just being a trashcan racist on the internet.

But that’s not the whole issue, it’s far more complicated than that. Moreover, we have quite a different concept of “race”. When I first came in contact with US culture, I was surprised to see that with the term PoC you include everyone who is not-white, including latinx people and people from Asia. In Italy with the term “persona di colore” we mean only black people from Africa. We would never ever call, say, an Argentinian or a Korean person with that term. I’d find it hard to apply that word to a person from north Africa as well, they wouldn’t be a person of colour but a tunisian/libian etc.

Unfortunately there have been many people from the US on tumblr who have offended us italians when we tried to explain that for cultural differences we do not use that term, claiming that we were racist scum or something.So thank you for sending such a polite ask and wanting to understand, this makes me very happy :)

Great Minds Think Alike (Riverdale - Jughead x OC)

Pairing : Jughead x OC

Synopsis : A new girl arrives in town around the time of Jason Blossom’s accident. That alone makes her suspicious and unlikeable to most people. Jughead has every reason to investigate on her, the timing is too perfect, right? And it has nothing to do with the young girl’s odd yet charming way of always seeming to find her way back to him, no matter the situation.  

Word Count : 2k

MASTERLIST

>>> Part 2

The first time Iris entered the small town of Riverdale, she thought she had just stumbled upon the most boring place on earth and gave a desperate look to her dad as soon as she saw the ridiculously low number of people who lived here under the Welcome to Riverdale sign.

A great deal of arguing happened when her parents broke the news to her that they were getting a divorce and then ensued a fight about who Iris would live with. The choice ended up being a practical one: after selling their house, her mom moved to a small apartment in Chicago, and her dad decided to go back to his hometown, in his childhood house. A house big enough for Iris to live in with him, big enough for her to keep sulking about being torn away from her life and friends and to keep avoiding her dad to silently punish him for destroying her life.

rolo and nyma’s origins

alright alright so hear me out, we don’t exactly know much about rolo and nyma

but their designs have too much detail and emphasis for them to just be one-episode minor characters. whenever the previous shows lauren and joaquim worked on introducted minor characters, THEY ALWAYS CAME BACK TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE STORY IN SOME WAY. (bumi, suki, jet’s team, teo, haru, pakku, sokka’s sword master, jeong jeong THE LIST GOES ON) so i’m definitely expecting rolo and nyma to return in the future

so what’s their backstory????

Perfectly Easy (and Tasty) Microwave Mochi Recipe

For those of you who are interested, this is how I make mochi. I used to do it the traditional steamer way but that took forever, and this is just as tasty but pretty quick to whip up! Also, there’s no possibility of you accidentally spilling boiling hot mochi all down your arms as you try to transfer the glop between cheesecloths (yes that’s happened to me and it was NOT. FUN.). If you don’t know what mochi is, it’s a Japanese sweet rice treat that is absolutely addictive: chewy and soft and YUM. I’m part Japanese and lived in Hawaii for a lot of my life so it’s a staple comfort food for me! I used to make it only for New Year’s and special occasions, but now that I microwave it I can make it whenever I want. Which is good, because look at how gorgeous it is:

Microwave Mochi Recipe (makes about 20 pieces)

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups mochiko (glutinous rice flour. Sold at most grocery stores in the Asian food section, look for a white box)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • 2-4 drops vanilla (this is optional, or you could use coconut extract/other flavorings instead, but I like vanilla)
  • Approximately 4 drops of food coloring. Traditionally you color mochi pink or green, so 4 drops of either green or red, but of course the color is really just up to you.

Instructions:

  • First you need a microwavable bowl. I use a tupperware container, it’s shallow but wide, like a pan. Any microwavable container that’s big enough would do though, I imagine.
  • Mix mochiko and sugar together in the bowl/dish until well blended (I use a fork). Add water to mixture and stir until no lumps are left, the mixture should be liquidy and smooth. It has a consistency similar to that of warm syrup. I like using a fork because it’s easy to break up the lumps and make sure the water’s well-integrated. Now add vanilla and food coloring, and stir until color is even throughout mixture. 
  • Put microwavable dish into the microwave and loosely cover with plastic. If you are using a tupperware container that comes with a lid, like I do, then just rest the lid askew on top of the dish so that it can vent but is still mostly covered.
  • Ok, now here’s the trick on how to make sure it turns out nice. Microwave the mochi on high for seven minutes total, but not all in one go. Here’s how I do it: Microwave 2 minutes, then take out of microwave and stir with that handy dandy fork. The edges will be more cooked than the middle, so mix it all together and try to get it as even as possible, then place back in microwave. Microwave 2 more minutes, then repeat; mixture will be stickier now. Microwave 2 more minutes and stir again, then microwave 1 more minute, take out and stir, and you’re done! The mixture will be really glossy and brightly colored now, and very very hot. It will also be basically glop, so stirring is more just folding the mix a little to make sure it’s even. So to sum up: Microwave 2 minutes and stir, repeat twice more so you have a total of 6 minutes, and then microwave for 1 minute and stir one last time. I microwaved for eight minutes once and the mochi wasn’t nearly as good, it got hard, so STICK WITH THIS TIMING.

  • The mochi will be VERY hot. Let it sit for … I’ve never timed it, but I’m guessing it’s about five minutes. Basically you need it still warm, but not hot. You want it to still be pliable so you can shape it, but don’t want to burn your fingers! While the mochi is cooling, you can make the powder you need to coat it in. This is also very simple:

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup potato starch (again, should be in Asian food aisle. Some people use cornstarch. DON’T USE CORNSTARCH.)
  • ¼ cup granulated white sugar
  • Pinch of salt (not very much at all, you don’t want your mochi to taste salty, eew. I think the original recipe I’ve adapted this one from called for ¼ t but that was too much for me, so I just use a tiny pinch now. Your call.)

In small bowl, combine potato starch, sugar, and salt.

… There, you’re done making that! Easy, right? XD

Now it’s time to shape the mochi.

[Technically, you could just leave it in the pan to cool completely (depending on your dish’s shape) and then cut it up into pieces with a plastic knife. If you’re planning on doing that, then mix the mochiko up in a separate bowl and oil your microwavable dish with vegetable oil before pouring mochi mixture in to cook. I’ve never done it this way though so I’m not sure how well it would work, considering you’d be stirring a lot. If you want to try though, it’s probably doable.]

The most important thing to remember is that warm mochi is incredibly sticky, but it doesn’t stick very much to plastic. This means that whatever utensils you’re using/surfaces you’re putting the mochi on should be plastic! To shape my mochi I actually use two plastic spoons I got from Yogurtland, haha, but to each their own.

Anyway, once the mochi is cool enough, take a plastic spoon and scoop up some mochi! Approximately a Tablespoon per piece is what I do, but the size is really up to you and your spoon. I use two spoons so I can scoop with one and then use the other to separate the scoop from the rest of the mochi, and to make sure the scoop is shaped nicely–you know, like when you shape cookie dough with two spoons? Like that.

So scoop up a dollop of mochi, and then drop it into the starch/sugar/salt mixture. Roll it around in the starch until it’s coated. Then pick it up with your fingers and just roll it in the palms of your hand until it’s a nice smooth ball shape. This is fun because it’s so squishy, like a stress ball. And finally, place on a plate to cool! You don’t have to worry about it being sticky any more because the powder coats it to keep it from being sticky. Aaaaaaaand you’re done! Just repeat with the rest of the mochi until the mochi is all nice and powder-coated, and that’s all. All that’s left is to eat all the mochi, which is, alas, way too easy to do. So yummy.

More fun things to do with Mochi:

  • Make mochi ice cream! No more going to the store for your mochi ice cream fix, just make your own! Microwave only six minutes (2 + 2+ 2) and then shape as usual but flatten instead of leaving a ball shape. Scoop a bite size dollop of ice cream, place in center of flattened mochi, and fold mochi closed around ice cream. Make sure it’s well coated with the powder, and return to the freezer to eat later :D
  • Wrap the mochi around other things too: Lychees, strawberries, sweet red bean paste …
  • If you add cocoa powder to your mochi mix before microwaving it, you make chocolate mochi!
  • You can also use green tea in lieu of plain water to make green tea mochi! I’ve never tried substituting other liquids but I know coconut milk works, and I am planning on making a batch of chai tea mochi soon :D

This recipe turned out pretty long because I ramble but honestly this stuff is SUPER easy to make. So have fun with it, happy eating, and happy new year! :)

A Perfect Beginning

The Black Fairy’s curse has passed. Magic has left our realm for good. No more dark ones or curses can hurt them now. Emma is on her way to discovering just what it’s like to lead a normal life with the man she loves

ff.net

                                            I: Honeymoon 

 Miles from Storybrooke, was where the Jolly Roger was anchored, far from any intrusive parents or well meaning dwarves. On the deck, tangled in each other, the sun kissing their naked skin, the two newly weds were lost in each other. 

    Since departing, Killian had taken care to make love to Emma on every available surface. The passion and love he felt for his new wife-his wife, his heart, his luv, his-had over taken him body and soul. Their couplings had been passionate beyond belief. But now, with the sun beginning to be engulfed by the sea, the former pirate took his time. He drew lazy kisses from her mouth, down, down, down tasting and teasing as he went. 

    Emma gasped as his tongue encircled her nipple, drawing it into his hot mouth. His tongue and teeth played across her skin. Hot coiling desire coarser through her, Emma’s hands came up, her fingers grasping dark locks, her wedding bands catching the dying sun light. 

    “Killian,“she sighed as he released her nipple to draw path down the slight curve of her belly to that sweet place between her shapely thighs. The cry that fell from her lips was lost to the crashing of waves on the sides of the ship. 


   He sucked, he kissed, he devoured her very nectar, drawing his wife to the highest peak of passion with his slow torture. His mouth closed around her clit, sucking hard, bringing Emma a kind of pleasure she’d never truly experienced. Her mind spun, her very bones turning to liquid. She lay limply beneath her husband as he rose up on his knees, positioning his throbbing cock at her entrance, with a practiced percison, he entered smoothly and hard.

   Her eyes flew open at the fullness of him, it felt so good to have him there. Killian clasped his hand in her own, holding it high above her head. His piercing blue eyes were the color of mercury as they bore into her own. 

   "Watch me, Swan,” he growled. 

   Emma could only give a wordless moan, but her green eyes never left Killian.

   Killian bucked his hips, the movements hard and slow, jarring her with every thrust, giving her his full length with every churn of his pelvis. Emma met him-thrust for thrust, both keeping the steady pace.

   "You’re so fucking beautiful, luv,“ he growled as he released her hand clasping her jutting breast, squeezing. 

   More pleasure flooded her, all at once the slow pace wasn’t enough for her. Emma rose up, gently, but firmly guiding Killian to his back. His only answer was a cheeky grin. He rearranged his legs, holding his shaft still for Emma to seat herself. She moved without hesitation, taking him to the hilt. She rode him like a warrior, a vengeful Amazonian goddess.

   Killian was captured by the beauty of her as she moved over him. And bloody hell did it feel amazing having her there. The woman he loved more than his own life riding him with a purpose. Killian grasped her neck tugging her lips down to meet his in a ravenous kiss. 

   It left them both gasping, Killian held her closer to him, thrusting deeper inside her. Their movements rose in tempo, their harsh breathing beating against their skin. The fire between them reached a powerful crescendo. Emma released a cry as her orgasm rocked through her, her arms grasped Killian tightly, as though he were the only thing anchoring her to the earth. Killian’s own completion was equally as powerful as he buried his face in the crook of his wife’s neck. 

   They remained like that for the span of a heart beat, Killian still buried deep inside her. Emma relaxed against him, pressing a feather light kiss on his temple as she sat up. 

 "That was …" 

 "Most definitely not a one time thing, luv,” he teased as he tucked a blond lock behind her ear.

 Emma released a light hearted giggle as she caressed her husbands face. “Hmm, well …" 

 "Minx,” he growled as he rolled her back beneath him, and began to remind his beautiful wife that he was not a man who could be satisfied with just a one time thing … .

Leatherworking Lecture: Casing

Hey, wow, I just hit 500 followers, thought I’d say thanks to everyone out there who’s stalking me and do something to celebrate. So here, guys, have something nice – have, uhh… *digs through closet* …a tutorial on how to prepare leather for tooling & shaping! :D

Greetings! Today I shall deliver an excessively long lecture on casing, aka, getting leather properly wet in order to carve it, tool it, and mold it. (You will be astounded how many words I have to say on the subject of “get it wet.”) This is not the most glamorous part of leatherworking, but it is an important one – properly cased leather will give you better results on your finished product, and also make it easier and more fun. Working with good, properly-cased leather is a genuine joy – working with cheap or badly-cased leather is an exercise in frustration.

I haven’t really found anywhere else that puts all this information in one place. Other people have talked extensively about tooling, because that’s the fun part, but I’ve never found a comprehensive guide to casing. When newbies get on leatherworking forums, etc, and ask for advice on casing, the old-timers tend to say things like “You’ll learn to tell when it’s properly cased” or “You’ll get a feel for it” – which is true, but not all that helpful when you’re first starting out.

Idk if im 100 on the design or colors but i wanted to complete it so YA

he’s a BIG OL BOY that transforms into a F-117 Nighthawk, which are notorious for being hard to fly but very stealthy

So he’s constantly accidentally sneaking up on people even though he’s HUGE, but at the same time he’s clumsy as hell…he breaks a lot of things on the Nemesis. Sometimes seems a little too bot-please-y t make a good decepticon, but he tries his best and that’s all that matters.

PS - U can’t see them but his denta are p jagged and jacked up bc of his penchant for running face first into door frames.

PPS - him got BIG OLE SERVOS

anonymous asked:

What do you think would cause Maggie to have a red moment as a top? (just an answer is fine, unless you want to fic this; I would not complain!)

It’s her job to monitor Alex’s color; her job to put her fingers on Alex’s palm and make sure she squeezes before continuing; to make sure, that as Alex’s is cuffed and blindfolded and naked underneath her, her hand clamping Alex’s mouth closed, quiet, that Alex wants everything, wants more, wants it all, wants her.

It’s her job to make sure Alex is good, at every single moment.

And she takes her job very seriously.

But Alex is strong and Alex likes it rough, so when Maggie is buried inside her, ragged breath and hard thrusts, she feels Alex’s muffled screaming in her palm and she glances up, to where Alex’s hands are cuffed above her head, to make sure, to make sure, to make sure.

Because she takes her job very seriously.

But so does Alex, and Alex’s job – at the DEO, anyway – is pain, and Alex doesn’t notice that she’s writhing so hard in the cuffs that her skin is getting red, that her skin is starting to tear, that her skin is starting to bleed.

Maggie’s heart lurches and Maggie is dizzy and Maggie stops moving immediately and Alex whines and Alex begs and Alex pleads and Alex moans, because she thinks Maggie’s teasing her, she thinks Maggie just needs her to show her what a good girl she is, how she deserves to be fucked really good and just like that, but Alex freezes when she hears Maggie panting out, “Red, red, red.”

“It’s okay, babe, I’m okay, it’s okay, you’re okay,” Alex streams out in a single breath, because Maggie’s hand is gone from her mouth now and she’s shaking above her and she’s apologizing over and over and Alex can’t tell what for but she knows she wants to hold her, to hold her, to hold her, to let Maggie hold her, so she offers up her hands, her wrists, so they can be unlocked, so they can be free to sooth through Maggie’s hair and stroke her cheeks and hold her, soothe her, love her.

And that’s when she sees the red marks the cuffs have made with the force of her writhing, and that’s when she sees Maggie’s fingers tremble as they work at the lock, and that’s when she sees Maggie’s eyes water as she brings her lips to Alex’s stinging skin, and that’s when she realizes why Maggie’s color went red.

“Babe, you didn’t hurt me, I’m good, I’m okay, you didn’t hurt me, it doesn’t hurt,” Alex repeats, kissing Maggie’s forehead as Maggie worries over her wrists.

“You told me you were okay and it didn’t hurt last time you got shot in the field,” Maggie protests, and it would be funny if her voice weren’t so shredded with tears, with worry, with fear.

“Hey, hey, hey, this isn’t that. We’re not in the field, we’re at home. I’m in your bed. Your very, very comfortable, but not as comfortable as mine and I don’t know why you keep insisting we sleep here bed.”

“Your room doesn’t even have a door, Danvers – “ Maggie stops her spluttering when she sees Alex’s smile, and her eyes water again.

“You’re okay? I didn’t hurt you?”

Alex glances at her wrists and grins wickedly. “I’m pretty sure I did this to myself. You did warn me not to move, after all.”

Her voice drops and Maggie’s breath hitches and Alex strokes her hair, her cheeks, her jawline.

“I know you’d never hurt me, Maggie. I’m good. I promise. Okay?”

Maggie nods and kisses her softly before gathering her into her arms. Alex melts into her embrace and Maggie needs to make sure one more time.

“You’re not mad?”

“Of course I’m not mad, Mags. I love how you look out for me. So much.”

Maggie smiles and presses a kiss to Alex’s hair. “Good then, Danvers. Because I’m always gonna look out for you.”

“Sounds perfect to me.”

I saw you wrote that thingy about Trans!Will on his period and I was maybe wondering if I could request something like that? Like maybe... Will coming out to Nico or something like that? (I've never done this question thing before and its anonymous and my anxiety is urging me to press the cancel button and I don't know why 👀).

never be scared to send in an ask, on or off anon!! i love getting asks tbh… and i love writing trans will stuff!! i have another trans will coming out fic on my ao3 (willsolaceyall) so hit me up there if you wannu to!

-

Will didn’t hide any part of his identity - that wasn’t his style. He was a Loud and Proud kind of guy. Will Solace was the kind of guy to yell “I’m gay!” at the top of his lungs in response to any personal question. On top of that, he often wore the trans flag emblazoned on different jackets and shirts and even socks. On many an occasion, Will walked around camp with a giant pride flag draped across his shoulders as he zoomed around like a superhero and called himself ‘The Terf Destroyer’. 

So, he never thought he’d have to come out to Nico. But, apparently, he was wrong.

Nico’s eyebrows were furrowed in confusion, pretty dark eyes locked on Will’s blue ones. “Wait, wait,” he interrupted again. “You’re talking like you have that too?”

Will’s face scrunched up like he’d taken a bite of something both very sour and terribly alarming. “What, a period? That’s because I do. You know that, darlin’, don’t you?”

Bushy red hair came into Nico’s view and suddenly he was looking at Rachel with the same perplexed expression. “Are you alright, Nico?” she asks and suddenly Nico isn’t so sure.

“You’re a man..” his whisper came, quiet yet so loud to Will’s ears. No amount of sparring in the distance could drown out his voice. Not even the volleyball game that was taking place nearby. “How do you have .. that?”

Will blinked. He rubbed his eyes, stuck his pinkies in his ears and twisted to clear them. “I’m sorry.” He wasn’t sorry and was obvious. “I’m sorry, I… I don’t think I’m understanding you. Do you have amnesia or something?”

Nico shook his head. “I would remember this, believe me.”

“Nico… I’m not exactly quiet about being trans. You know I’m trans, right?”

Rachel took this time to excuse herself. Apparently a mural was carving it’s way through her mind and if she didn’t skip off to paint it right this minute, they’d all face the wrath of Phoebus Apollo himself. (”It’s always nice to see my dad.” Will snarked. Rachel left laughing.)

When Rachel was finally gone far enough away, Will nervously shifted towards his boyfriend, clearing his throat. “You do know I’m trans, right? Like, this is okay?”

Nico shrugged. “I don’t know what trans means.”

“You…” Will’s blond curls fall over his forehead messily and that he didn’t automatically bring his hand up to toy with them or move them out of his face said something very loudly to Nico. And then Will sighed, brought his hand up in one motion, and tugged all of his own light hair backwards, pulling it. His eyes were wide. “How has no one told you yet…”

And Nico just shrugged again. He said, “Will you?” and smiled a bit when Will agreed because, of course Nico, why wouldn’t I?

“Well, there’s a lot of ways to explain this,” Will murmured. “But, I guess that the easiest way for someone who was born in your time period is… I was born a girl.” He paused at the look of surprise on Nico’s face. “Well, not really. But everyone though I was a girl because of body stuff. You know how doctors are. Bunch of quacks.” It’s here that Nico laughed, bringing hope to Will’s heart like he always did. “It wasn’t until later in my life, when I figured out I could be a boy that I realized that I always had been, secretly, inside. So.. I’ve got all the funny birthing components, like a uterus, or whatever you need, but I’m still a dude. There’s intersex trans dudes who might have different stuff,” Here, Nico’s face grew more perplexed, which cue’d Will’s turn to laugh. “Okay, okay, we’ll save that for a different discussion. But, basically, I’m transgender, which means ‘identifying as a different gender than the one assigned at birth’. They said I was a pretty little lady,” he shrugged with good humor. “I say I’m a pretty little man.”

Nico scratched his chin. “Is that what those colors are for? The flag?”

“Blue, pink, white, pink, blue,” said Will with pride. “If that’s what you’re referring to, then yes. That’s the trans flag.”

“And.. the other word. The one you-”

“Intersex?”

“…Yes.”

Will smiled at his boyfriend happily. “You’re very open-minded for a guy in your 80′s.”

Nico rolled his eyes, but Will could see him smiling. “Just shut up and tell me what it means.”

GOT7 in the Harry Potter Houses

Mark- Ravenclaw- Mark is really quiet, so we believe that he’d be really observant and clever. He’s stated that he enjoys alone time, and reading, which makes us believe that he likes learning new things.

JB- Slytherin- Jaebum is so incredibly confident, and he shows it. He’s also slightly aggressive and yells a lot, though when he loves someone, you know right away that he’ll do anything for them in a heartbeat.

Jackson- Gryffindor- Jackson was really hard for us to place, he seems like he could fit in anywhere. He enjoys learning languages, so we thought about Ravenclaw, he’s very confident so Slytherin was in question, and overall Jackson is a sweet dork, so Hufflepuff would also be fitting. But at the end of the day, Jackson is ambitious and loud, and will take risks to get what he wants.

Junior- Ravenclaw- Jinyoung is ridiculously sassy and has a comeback for everything. Aside from that, he’s motherly and takes care of people. Also he looks good in the color blue like come on?????

Youngjae- Hufflepuff- S u n s h i n e. Literally the sweetest boy ever we don’t even understand, so you best believe he’s a Hufflepuff. He’s not arrogant like Slytherin, brave like Gryffindor, or extremely intelligent like Ravenclaw. Youngjae is loyal and caring, and loves everyone. This boy deserves all the love in the world.

BamBam- Gryffindor- This boy was so hard for us to place too. Kunpimook seems like the kind of guy to do things to get attention, even though he’s terrified of everything (????). He’s just like Neville Longbottom, but more lit, u feel. And in all honesty, you better be ready to see him dabbing down the corridor, its fine.

Yugyeom- Hufflepuff- He’s the sweetest little boy ever, such a shy baby. He’s the kind of person you want to take care of, and the kind of person to do anything for his friends. Yugyeom is just too kind hearted to be anything other than Hufflepuff.

Hi! I was wondering if you could do a scenario request for Jun from SEVENTEEN? Maybe one where you're really outgoing and very studious and hard-working, and you're passing all of your classes with flying colors except Chinese (Mandarin or Cantonese) and Jun's kind of a slacker but he likes you so he offers to help? Sorry if it's really long and complicated. Thank you!

I hope you enjoy it! I personally don’t think I’m good at writing fluff so… bear with me please!

TITLE : SUCK IT UP Y/N…

WORD COUNT : 901

GENRE : idk at this point….


Here you were again, standing in front of the teacher’s desk while she rambled on about how you were failing her class. It wasn’t the first time you’d listened to this lecture and you were positive it wouldn’t be the last.

There was something about Mandarin that you just could not understand. Maybe it was writing it or maybe it was the verb conjugations. Whatever the problem was, it was killing your grade. You were very studios and you were passing with flying colors in all of your other classes. Mandarin was the only subject dragging your GPA to hell.

“Maybe it’s time for a tutor,” your teacher sighed, as she leaned back in her chair.
“I don’t know anyone who could tutor me Miss,” you replied, wringing your hands nervously.

Your teacher sighed, sitting up and flipping through the grade book on her desk. She ran her finger down the list of names in front of her. You tried your best to decipher the names, but to no avail. Her handwriting was truly awful and for a moment you wondered if that’s why your grade was so low… Perhaps she had put the wrong letter grade in the computer simply because she read what she’d written down incorrectly.

“How about… Wen Junhui? He sits right across the aisle from you and he’s gotten full marks on all of the exams in this class,” she suggested, looking up at you expectantly.

As much as you tried to keep your features neutral, you couldn’t help but frown in unhappiness. Nonetheless, you nodded your head in acceptance. You were desperate.


Wen Junhui was infuriating. Nearly everything he did irked you: his devious smirk, his obnoxious laugh when you messed something up, his overall attitude. The only way he got away with anything in school was because he had been blessed by some god with good looks. He was barely passing every class other than Mandarin and maybe physical education…

However, there was something about him… Blame it on your hormones but you couldn’t help but laugh nervously at his jokes. And, if you were honest, you got a warm feeling in your stomach whenever he strolled through the door into class. Call it a love-hate relationship, but more importantly, call it one-sided. You were positive the only time Jun noticed you was when you screwed something up.


You almost slammed your head on your desk when Jun approached you after class to talk to you.

“Hey… I heard you needed help.”

“Yeah,” you replied as you continued to pack up your binders.

“Whenever you’re ready, I can drive you to my house so we can get started,” he said coolly, leaning back against his desk.

You nearly dropped your backpack at his remark. Straightening up and slinging your backpack over your shoulder, you looked at him and nodded, motioning for him to lead the way.

You followed him out of the school and to a rather nice hybrid in the student lot. Jun unlocked the car and you got in. The drive to his house was almost silent, the radio quietly playing some new pop song being the only sound in the car.


You would be lying to yourself if you said you weren’t a little excited to be studying at Jun’s house. It was a nice house and you could tell his mother took pride in it.

Jun led you up to his room and threw his backpack on the bed before sitting on the floor. You sat against the door opposite of him and opened your backpack to pull out your binders.

“Where do you want to start?” he asked you, watching your every move.

You did your best to hide the blush rising on your cheeks.

“Well, I’m kind of bad at everything… so I guess we start at the beginning…” you mumbled.

Jun sighed.
“I’ll go get snacks then… It’s going to be a long day.”


It seemed that every day was the same. Jun drove you to his house and helped you study for two hours before driving you home. It seemed that every day was the same. You got frustrated and Jun stayed patient. Every day was just… the same. However, every day was also a tad bit new. You were learning the concepts and fully understanding them in ways you hadn’t before. You were also growing closer to Jun. Through playful teasing, you were starting to become more comfortable around him, and he around you…


“A 98 percent, Jun! A 98 percent!” you exclaimed, bouncing on your toes in excitement.

Jun smiled, his eyes lighting up.

“Y/n! That’s great!”

“Thank you,” you said and before you could stop yourself you found yourself hugging him tightly.

He slowly wrapped his arms around you and squeezed lightly before letting go.

“You know Y/N…” he began slowly. “I don’t work for free.”

You froze, unsure of what he meant. Of course you should have expected this, you told yourself.

“How much do I owe you?” you asked.

“A date. At least one if not more. Friday night. I’ll pick you up at seven okay and wear something comfortable,” he replied, giving you that smirk you had once oh-so-hated.

You couldn’t help but smile as he walked down the hallway to his next class, looking behind him to throw you a wink as he disappeared through the doorway.
