Hi, Uhm I absolutly love your account. I was wondering if you could do one where y/n is new to Riverdale and ends up be a loner, and since jughead knows what that’s like they become friends <3 lots of fluff. Please and thank you

Pairing: Jughead x Reader

Description: Jughead isn’t a social butterfly, but the new girl, with her impressive writing skills, may be an exception.

Warnings: none

Word count: 958

A/N: I had a lot of fun writing this one, hope you enjoy!

Jughead didn’t care much for his classmates.  He had a select amount of friends, and they satisfied him.  He found no point in socializing with other people just for the sake of more people to talk to.  (Y/N) (Y/L/N), the new girl, was no exception to Jughead’s belief.  She had recently moved to Riverdale, and she sat in the back of Jughead’s English class.  Although he never saw her with any friends, Jughead felt no obligation to act friendly towards (Y/N) because she had no other friends.  That was not his job.

“New girl’s pretty,” Veronica commented at lunch one day.  Jughead looked up from his chips at Veronica.

“So what?” he asked, eyebrows raised.  Veronica raised her hands in mock-surrender.

“Woah there, Jughead,” she rolled her eyes, “I’m just saying.”

“I feel bad for her,” Betty joined in on the conversation.  “I don’t think she has any friends.”

“Being the new girl is hard,” Veronica empathized with (Y/N), popping a fry in her mouth.  “It’s hard to make friends at a new school.  I got lucky with you guys.”  The whole table cooed at what Veronica said, then laughed.

Their English teacher made them write an analysis on the book the class had just finished.  Jughead, a natural-born writer, finished it with ease. Most of the rest of his class, from what he could tell, struggled with the assignment.

The day that the assignment was due, the English teacher surprised everyone by announcing that the analysis would have to be read in front of the whole class.  This sent some of Jughead’s classmates into a frenzy because no one felt confident in their writing.  Jughead was the only volunteer to read.  He stepped up in front of the class and effortlessly read his analysis, and once he finished he plopped back into his chair.  Because there were no more volunteers, his teacher began to randomly select students.  Every student who went up stuttered and fumbled and lacked proper analysis in Jughead’s opinion.  Unimpressed, he sat in his chair with his arms crossed and a judgmental look plastered on his face.

“(Y/N) (Y/L/N),” the teacher called out.  Jughead shifted in his seat so he could glance at the new girl.  Her eyes were wide as she shakily stood up.  Grabbing her paper, she ventured to the front of the classroom.  She cleared her throat and began to read.  Jughead was shocked by her eloquence: her voice was clear and smooth, her writing was immaculate, and her analysis had extreme depth.  When she finished, she quickly sat down before any students had the chance to applaud.

The bell rang, and while the other students dashed out of the room, Jughead approached (Y/N) as she stuffed her binders into her bag.

“That was impressive,” he commented, leaning against the desk in front of her.  She turned to face him.

“What was impressive?” she inquired, pulling a bit of hair behind her ears.

“Your writing,” Jughead answered. “It was very eloquent.  You’re very good.”

“Yours was better,” she responded, shrugged her bag onto her shoulder.  She began to exit the classroom, and Jughead followed in her footsteps.

“That’s debatable,” he countered, “and I don’t say that too often.”  (Y/N) laughed at that, causing Jughead to crack a smile.

“Well then, I’m glad that someone has finally met your standards,” she quipped, and his smile widened.  “Anyhow, it was nice talking to you, but I have to go to history now.”  Her pace quickened as she left Jughead’s side, and he stood in the hallway as he watched her walk away.  He barely noticed that his cheeks were a bit redder than usual.

Over the course of the next two weeks, Jughead tried to get to know (Y/N) better.  He moved his seat so that he was next to her in English.  He began to invite her to his table to eat lunch with him and his friends.  Although they all noticed his shift in attitude, they chose to remain silent. They were going to let Jughead figure this one out on his own.

It took Jughead another three weeks before he finally realized what happened.  He was sitting in his booth with (Y/N) across from him.  They were working on an English project, each of them working on their own individual assignment.  There was no conversation being tossed between them, just a soothing silence.  Jughead looked up from his writing and saw the girl sitting across from him, and then it hit him.  He liked her.  

“(Y/N),” her name spilled out of his mouth before he could stop himself.  Her head snapped up, and she shot him a puzzled glance.

“Yes, Jug?” she questioned. Jug.  When did she start calling him that?

“When did you start calling me that?” he voiced his thoughts.  (Y/N) shrugged.

“I don’t know,” she answered. But he didn’t care about the answer to that question.  What he was really wondering was when did everything change?

“Is this a date?” his words stumbled over one another as they poured out of his mouth.  He immediately regretted saying that.

“I didn’t think it was,” (Y/N) remained calm.  “It can be if you want.”  Jughead almost missed the second part of her reply, but once it registered in his mind, he burst into a grin.  (Y/N) shook her head with a smile etched onto her face, and turned back to her English work.

“Or would this not be our first date, since we’ve come to Pop’s together so many times before?” Jughead wondered aloud.  (Y/N) laughed as she set her pencil down.

“It’s our first date, Jug,” she told him.  “It’s the first because we didn’t acknowledge it before.”  Jughead smiled cheekily.

“Then this is a great first date.”


request: “18 + 22 with Draco Malfoy plz?” — by @harley-with-gegs-quinn

a/n: again, let’s pretend they’re not 14-year-olds in this imagine lol

18. “Sorry, but I don’t really care anymore.”
22. “Out of all the possible people, why you?”


Masterlist + Request here! 

    Everyone was staring at Professor McGonagall either like she was a gift from the heavens or was giving them another load of heavy school work. You admit that you were one of few students who were looking at her admirably, not even lying that you were looking forward for this Yule Ball that she was speaking of in accordance with the Triwizard Tournament.

    Supposedly, it was Professor Snape who was to explain the details since he was the head of your house, but because he had ‘something else much more important to attend to’, it was the Transfiguration teacher who volunteered to explain.

    “Y/L/N.” a familiar drawling voice said all of the sudden, and despite the fact that the boys and girls weren’t sitting with each other — the girls on the left, the boys on the right, while there was a huge space in the middle where Professor McGonagall was still explaining — Draco managed to stand beside you with a smug look on his face.

    “Malfoy.” you copied his tone, not even looking at him.

    “Bet no one has asked you yet, huh, Y/L/N?” he snickered. “Wouldn’t blame them, to be honest. Who would want to go out with you when they can bring a better date?”

     You flickered your eyes to him and glared. “Funny for you to say that, Malfoy. Since rumor has it that you’re taking Parkinson.”

    He sneered. “At least, I get to take someone. Unlike you.”

    “How are you so sure that no has asked me yet? You know, if you keep on making assumptions like that, you might as well replace Professor Trelawney.”

    You weren’t lying about your statement, of course, but it didn’t mean that you already had a date. Even though there have been various boys gaining up the courage in attempt to bring you to Yule Ball with them, you have declined all of them politely. Why? You weren’t sure yourself.

    “Oh, is that so? Who’s the miserable guy then?” asked Draco.

    You crossed your arms. “I don’t know why I should tell you.”

    He grinned abruptly. “You’re lying. It’s obvious that you are since you’re not telling me.”

    “Believe what you want to believe, but I’m still not telling you.”

    The two of you glared at each other as if having a staring contest, seeing who would break away first. No one did though, both driven by pride, that it was Professor McGonagall who successfully broke your disgusted gazes on each other when she abruptly spoke.

     "Ah, Miss Y/L/N and Mr Malfoy, as it seems that you are the only two left, you’ll be partners.“ she held your wrists, dragging you two to the dance floor where many students were already awkwardly dancing with each other.

    It took you a minute to realize that bickering with Draco a while ago prevented you from listening to the teacher’s instruction to pick a partner and practice with them in dancing. Professor McGonagall was no woman to question so the both of you just stood there with your jaws hanging in protest, the said professor moving on to another pair.

    Draco furrowed his eyebrows. ”Out of all the possible people, why you?“ he demanded, composing himself much quicker than you did.

    "This is all your fault.” you gritted your teeth. “If you weren’t such an obnoxious scumbag, this wouldn’t have happened.”

    “Typical of you, Y/L/N. You’re blaming someone else for your own stupid mistakes.”

    “Well, what can I say? I got it from you.” you scowled.

    “Y/L/N, Malfoy! What are you two doing? Oh my goodness, you’re still not even in positions.” Professor McGonagall had returned to your post.

    Suddenly, she grabbed one of Draco’s hands and placed them firmly on your waist before taking another one of yours and putting it on Draco’s shoulder.

    “There. Now —” she literally forced both of your free hands to hold each other —"follow the beat of the music and dance with each step at a time.“

    You huffed a breath just as the professor leaves once again, now approaching Goyle and Pansy whose eyes were sending daggers at your direction, clearly annoyed that you were dancing with the person she liked.

    "Watch it, Y/L/N.” you heard Draco hiss that made you look at him and realize that you had stepped on his foot.

    You gave him a sarcastic smile. “Sorry, but I don’t really care anymore.

    “I do, and it’d be great if my feet weren’t swollen on the night of the dance itself.” he retorted.

    After that, it seemed that you and Draco had ran out of insults to say, for neither one of you bothered to say a word while dancing slowly and unwillingly with each other. You were actually quite surprised as the song continued and found yourself being led by Draco, who was a fine dancer himself.

    You oddly stared at him.

    “How do you know how to dance?” you couldn’t help but ask, gaining his attention from the floor.

    It was the first time he answered you in a serious manner for the day that you made it a point to listen carefully.

    “Father gets invited to a lot of fancy parties and balls. Obviously, as his son, I needed to learn if I didn’t want to just stay in the corner and sulk.”

    He suddenly twirled you around and brought you back a little bit closer than before, making you gulp. Draco noticed this and smirked.

    “Nervous, Y/L/N?” said Draco in a low voice.

    “No.” you denied immediately, even though your heart was already leaping out of your chest.

    “Sure, sure.” he chuckled and abruptly dipped you down, catching you off guard once again.

    The hold you had on his shoulder tightened, as well as the grip that you had on his hand. Draco was amused by your lack of skills that when he lifted you back up, he stopped leading for a moment to look at you closely.

    “Do you really have a date already?”

    You were taken back by his question. “Why are you so interested in knowing?”

    Draco shrugged and continued to dance, bringing you along the beat. “Because I’m not taking Parkinson and —”

    You widened your eyes. “And you’re asking me?”

    He cleared his throat. “Well, you proved that you’re not the worst out there, and really I’ve been meaning to ask you since earlier but … if you don’t want, I can find somebody else.”

    “You have a knack of trying to ask someone to the dance.” you sarcastically said.

    “Yeah, I’ve been told.” he returned a sarcastic smile.

     You sighed. “Uh — okay, I’ll go with you. If you’d stop being a git, that is.”

     "No promises.“ Draco grinned and once more, spun you around, pulling you back with only little space to spare between your faces.

Name: Candace
Age: 16
Country: Canada

hello friends! my name’s candace but many people call me candy. it crossed my mind for the first time a few minutes ago that i should find a penpal, not only because it’s incredibly cute but also because i’d love to find new friends! i really love the idea of getting snail mail from someone on the other side of the world! anyways, here’s some stuff about me:

one; i love music. my first instrument was the piano, and now i teach it to lil kids as a part-time job :) my main love is singing though, and the ukulele! i also love the guitar, but i’m terrible at it. i also listen to ALL genres–no kidding, my music library must have 10000+ songs. so if you love music and want super cool and obscure music recs OR you have a super cool and obscure music taste i’d love to get to know you !

two; i love books + movies. my favourite books are harry potter, to kill a mockingbird, flowers for algernon, the outsiders, and the kite runner (but i enjoy a variety of books). my favourite movie is it’s a wonderful life and pretty much anything with audrey hepburn!!! as you can probably tell i like the classics, but i also like new stuff, too! i try to be as unpretentious as possible i swear ;)

three; i’m nice and sweet and if i grow attached to you i will probably never let u go >:) nah but honestly i’m very caring and i love giving and receiving advice. even though i can be very cheerful and sweet, i often come off as a little shy and distant. i’ve had a pretty rough year mental health-wise but i’m definitely recovering! so if you have mental health issues or just want somebody to talk to when you’re sad i’m your girl.

four; like i said, i love reading. i also love writing, photography, my friends and family, spring, sleep, watching tv, and volunteering/doing stuff other than staying home or going to school (although i do this the most :P) right now i’m thinking of majoring in psych and eng @ uoft but i still have two years of high school before i have to figure it out! i don’t particularly like high school but i don’t particularly hate it either. but it’d be nice to know someone outside my little bubble.

other little things about me include my love for cheesecake; my desire to travel; my favourite stores (chapters or other small bookshops or record shops or coffee shops!); my favourite food other than cheesecake (pho and poutine); my favourite tv shows (friends, gilmore girls, merlin, brooklyn nine nine); my favourite places (london, amsterdam, wwohp, my room); and my favourite genres of music (jazz, indie rock, indie folk, alternative, jazz hip-hop).

this summer i will be going to vietnam for a month so if you’re from there PLS TALK TO ME my vietnamese is crap.

okay i think that’s all! thank you for reading this massive wall of text :)

p.s. how do you find will smith in the snow? you look for fresh prints

hehe hope you liked the joke if you didn’t please pretend you never saw that

Preferences: if you think we could be friends please talk to me ! i love talking to younger kids and also older kids and also old people in general. adults are kind of gross but if you’re cool then i’ll allow it :) jk adults are cool too. oh and if you’re around my age (15-19) thats nice too! *checks to see if i’ve covered all the age groups* oh ya any babes can contact me too ;) (…sorry)

Hey! Let’s Be Friends, Okay?

I should be working on the fourth chapter of Envy’s Child because HYPE, but I just can’t believe that people hate KuroMahi… So here we go, stay positive!

Prompt- School AU (First grade)

Kuro’s first day of first grade is today. Joy. Barely 6 years of age and his sarcasm is great. Goal for today: Not to make a teacher yell at him. Kuro brushed his light blue hair away from his face.

“Kuro? We’re supposed to be going now. Are you ready?” Kuro’s dad, a white-haired man, asked. His quiet son nodded. “Are you not going to cover your eyebags?” A shake. “Alright. Let’s go, then.” Kuro would never admit it out loud when asked that he liked his father’s tired yet strong voice. He also got the tired, deep voice of his father, but much weaker and squeaky. Smaller, less powerful.

Someone’s gotta do it

i have a date tomorrow with a guy i really like so far, since we started talking I haven’t even looked at OKC and we’ve been texting daily 

i’m really really really hoping I haven’t built this up more than i should and tomorrow is going to go as awesome as I hope :’DD

How to increase your chances of securing a scholarship

Hi hi hi to add credibility to this post let me just say that I have applied for 4 scholarships, got to the last round (interview) for all 4, and was offered a scholarship by 2 organizations! Um my A levels results was pretty decent, I got 4 As and a C! 

Ok to start:

1. Decide on what you wanna do in the future

Only aim for scholarships in organizations that you are interested in, it will make a difference. Some of the scholarship process will require you to write a short essay on why you want their scholarship, and your passion will show if you’re genuinely interested in it. Don’t just do it for the free education and allowance, do it because you think you can make a difference in the organization. This is for you as much as it is for them. They want a committed dedicated individual, you want a work that is meaningful and enjoyable for you. 


ORGANIZE EVENTS. Companies love this shit! It shows your time management skills, teamwork, determination, ability to think on the spot etcetc. Take up internship or go to events that are relevant your desired organization. If you want to apply for a science related scholarship, enter science fair, volunteer to help your science teachers, volunteer to mentor your younger peers. Anything that shows your passion. If possible, try to apply for internship with your desired organization. This will give you a huge advantage bc you have in-depth knowledge of the organisation. But remember not to screw it up, show hard work and sincerity.

2. Research

After you have narrowed down your scope to selected organizations that you’re interested in, it is now time for you to research on what they do exactly. This will provide you with a better understanding of how the company works, and whether it will be suitable for you. Things to take note of:

Scholarship criteria
Application Deadline (SUPER IMPORTANT)
Scholarship selection process: some just require an essay and interview, others have IQ tests and simulation test, so it’s best to make sure.
Relevant websites and where to apply for scholarships
Documents needed (Do you need testimonials? It is best to inform your teachers early if you require testimonial so that they can craft a nice one for you!!) 

3. Commence application process

Take one whole day, sit down and craft your resume. Find out if there is some scholarship application portal. Note down all your achievements (don’t have to be comprehensive, just major ones in recent years, not the class monitor position you got at 10 year old). Write a short essay talking about yourself and your ambitions. What are your interests and why. How do you think your interests can help your further your career, talk about any role models if it is relevant to the organization. (ie if you are applying for a teaching scholarship maybe you can talk about how your teacher had inspired you greatly etc.) What did you learn from your activities in school, or any setbacks you have encountered that changed you for the better. Remember that the interviewers know that you are just human, 18 or 19 years old. It’s ok to make mistakes and not have super good achievement. They are looking for potential and interest. 

Make sure your essay is crafted to individual company, don’t send the same essay to ALL organizations. Make it detailed, make it relevant! It shows effort and interest. 

4.  Writing essay 

MAKE IT RELEVANT TO THE ORGANIZATION AND YOU. Ok this will help you in both your essay and interview. Talk about why you like the organization and what they stand for, but also point out areas where they can do better AND SUGGEST OPINIONS. Companies are looking for people who will add value to the company, don’t be afraid to offer suggestions that will better their workings. 

Also, since the company is planning to invest tons of money on you they will want to reap the benefits long term. So don’t be afraid to talk about your big ambitions

In one of my interview essay, the question was “where do you see yourself in 15 years time?” and I wrote about how I want to rise to a position influential enough to direct changes. I got that scholarship offer. Don’t be afraid to show your drive, this is what they are looking for. They are not going to spend $50k on your education and expect you to fetch coffee. 

5. Check your application, and double check. Make sure you got all the documents required, check your essay. Get someone to check it. 

6. If you got through the first round, then congratulations! If you didn’t, it’s ok, there are other scholarships! And you can always apply for it during university!

7.  After that, just go with the flow, depending on the number of selection rounds. I had one scholarship application where there were 4 rounds: written essay, IQ test, simulation process, interview. But here are a few tips for the interview, which will definitely happen.

Always be yourself. Make jokes, show your insecurities, show your drive, show your passion.
Even though you are yourself, don’t make jokes at the expense of the company. One time I was asked why should they give me the scholarship and I joked about how they don’t have enough people and they should hire me bc I was present and available. Well guess who didn’t get that scholarship. 

If you have applied for multiple scholarships and interviewers ask you about which is your favourite, ALWAYS PICK THEIR ORGANIZATION. Don’t hint that they are your backup plan, that is the ultimate deal breaker. 

Always research the company, and know what the position you are gunning for entails. Another time I was asked about my job scope and I could not give them a good answer. Well, I didn’t get that scholarship, even though that was my favourite. But I guess I left an impression good enough that they specifically offered me an internship for me to understand the company better, so that I can apply for their scholarship next year. But I have already accepted my current one, which I love too!  

8. Questions to prepare for

Tell me about yourself?
Why should we give you the scholarship?
What do you know about us and the job scope? 
Where do you see yourself in 15 years time?


Super no-brainer. You don’t have to be super formal like suit and tie (you’re only what, around 20?) but it has to be formal and decent. Stick to monochrome, or fancier if you’re applying in the arts field, for girls no mini skirt or stilettos or tank top. For guys no polo tee or khaki or slippers, no matter how informal it seems. Show your respect. 


ALWAYS REMEMBER THEY ARE LOOKING FOR PEOPLE TO FURTHER THEIR COMPANY, IF YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS, SAY IT. THAT’S WHAT THEY ARE LOOKING FOR. But don’t say it in a condescending or rude manner, what is more important than innovation is your ability to work with others. Always show that you are an amicable and easy to work with person, but not a pushover. Be fluent, be coherent, be confident. You don’t have to be eloquent (though it helps) but make sure your ideas are communicated clearly. But don’t be a pushover, if they try to make things difficult for you, stay calm. Understand their point of view and evaluate your argument and theirs. Don’t reject theirs totally (unless it’s ludicrous), pick up solid points from their argument and agree with it, then come to a compromise.

11. Tips


YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!! 

Crumble! Lai Guanlin

Genre: Angst? Is this angst? 

Prologue: hate to dislike…to like- then to adore…then love? ♡

You hate this place. This land of property that gets stepped on daily by thousands of people, this side of the said land where people absorb information from someone who lived longer than they did, this building full of rooms of desks and chairs, this room full of 30 people, you hate it all.

You hate the teacher as they always turn their backs on you when they write on the board, expecting you to actually take notes. You hate the 6 rows of heads in front of you, blocking your view from the board that the teacher was scribbling on. You hate the way the person in fronts of you always flick their hair backward, hitting your face in the process. Heck, you don’t want to smell her unwashed hair. You hate the teacher when he finishes scribbling and turns back to the body of students to ask them random questions like, ‘Where do you think you’ll be in perhaps 10 years from now?’ Like how are you supposed to know, you can’t tell the future nor can you get the superpowers needed to see the future, and if you did have the superpowers you would want something more helpful to you than seeing the future, like teleportation. So you can get the hell away from this wretched place. “Guanlin.” Ugh, it’s the guy who sat next to you. Did he seriously raised his hand? Another reason why you hate him the most.

Lai Guanlin. You hate him the first day you saw him. It was the first day of school and being the second person to enter the empty classroom he sat next to you. Out of the places and seats open all around the classroom. He sat next to you.

You hate how he always raised his hand when the teacher asks a question. Having everyone’s attention on him, and you who was sitting next to him hated attention.

You hate projects, especially projects that required two people instead of individual work which you prefer way more. Guanlin always wants to do the project with you. So every project, you guys hanged out and worked on the project, him being the teacher’s pet gave you free A’s. Sweet.

You hate the student council. The ridiculous method of having to stay after school just for a meeting between every class representative? Sure, sign me up for the going home club please. But nope. No way. Not with Guanlin and that kid who sat next to him always eating something in class. ‘Teacher! I volunteer myself and y/n to be the class representative.’ Umm, dude. Do you not see the lack of people who actually want to be part of the student council? And this is taking way too much time, lunch is going to end. Seonho immediately agreed, ‘Yes! I completely absolutely positively agree! Now can we go to lunch??’  …I should’ve known- traitors. ‘Way to turn in your best friend for lunch.’ They laughed, ‘Come on y/n. Lunch is almost over.’

Overall you hate Guanlin. You hate the way his side profile looks perfect every time you glance at him and he’s completely focused. You hate the faces he makes when the teacher says something confusing, that even a smart guy like himself doesn’t comprehend. You hate the way his hair just seems so soft, that you want to comb your fingers through them and feel blessed. You hate the way some rays of sunlight is able to hit his hair in the afternoon, when the sun is high in the sky, making him look unreal. It was almost hard to believe he was actually there.

You hate it when Guanlin holds out his hand, waiting for yours to come in contact with his when he wants to take you somewhere. You hate the way he smiles and shows his cute gums, making him look adorable to the point where you want to just carry an expensive video camera with you at all time just to record his high-quality beams. You hate the way he glances at you in class, making your heart flutter every time his eyes were on you. In fact, you dislike looking him in the eyes. It makes your legs want to quit their support of your whole body and make you turn into a puddle of butterflies.

You dislike when it’s time for PE, hating the uniform which was way too short for your own comfort. You dislike how Guanlin just seems to catch every detail and would hand his jacket to you every day just for you to cover your legs as you sat down on the field to watch them play basketball. Speaking of him catching every small detail, you dislike every morning when there’s always a random drink and note on your desk trying to help brighten your day. You dislike when you’re on the rooftop taking a quick small demanding nap and there’s a sudden contact of his hand trying to wake you up. You dislike the fact he doesn’t even try to wake you up when he comes up to your sleeping form and take a sit against the fence after putting his uniform sweater over your body like he wanted you to sleep because he knew the lack of sleep you had. You liked how he would walk with you back to class and helped you clean up your face after drooling with a napkin. You like how he has like 5 tissue packs in his backpack and 5 in his desk just for you because you’re sensitive to the cold.

You like when he walks you home, and when he walks too far ahead and notices you were a bit too much behind he would wait right there just for you to catch up. When it happens way too often because of his long legs, then he would swiftly grab your hand and pull you along with him. If you were too tired that day, you would notice his small slow steps as he tried to walk in the same steps with you. You liked him in contacts or glasses. You liked the way he continuously pushes up his glasses because they keep sliding down his nose. You liked how fashionable he was outside of his uniform. You adore how cute he looks he’s when he becomes embarrassed at the compliments he gets. You adore his efforts to make you smile. You adore the little tricks he does, like poking your cheek but won’t look your way or just poking your cheek and grinning like a little kid. You adore the way he looks up to his hyungs. You adore how curious he is about everything. You adore his determination, his goals, and his dreams. You love him.

But you hate him. You hate him for making your heart flutter at his every action, making you believe you guys would be like this forever, making you smile at his every word, making you crying when he’s sad or in pain, making you trust him, making you accept yourself. Most of all, you hate that you love him.

“Y/n? Hey y/n~” He tapped your shoulder, making you tingle at his movement and snapping you out of your thoughts. “Huh- yea? What is it Guanlin?”

You glanced at the girl behind him, who was smirking at you as she laced her hands to his right in front of your eyes.

“I was wondering if you can walk home by yourself today. Heemin says she wants me to walk her home today, and I wanted to ask you first- cause I’ll just walk home with you if you want.”
You smiled, a half hearted one, “No it’s okay Guanlin. Go home with the nasty girl who is now grasping you with her dirty hands.”

You despise that you love him. You hate him, but most of all… you hate her.

What caused VFD’s schism?

How staggering to believe people such as Count Olaf or Jacques Snicket once belonged to the very same organization! Surely it would take an immensely traumatic event, a dramatically expanded argument to lead likewise individuals on such different paths. On one side, a cohort of thieves, murderers and arsonists, determined on stealing fortunes. On the other side, a secretive alliance of researchers and experts evading persecution. Did they ever have anything in common?

“It’s complicated and confusing,” Olivia explained. “They say that long ago it was simple and quiet, but that might be a legend. There was a schism in V.F.D., a great big fight between many of the members, and since then it’s been hard for me to know what to do.
[The Carnivorous Carnival, Chapter Seven]

There is something quite absurd about this conflict. Actually, Kit and Dewey believe the Schism happened when they were about four years old, which means that most of the adults of "A Series of Unfortunate Events” are probably too young to remember it anyway. The origins of the Schism are so obscure they border on mythology: children follow their elders’ instructions without questions, and with each generation, more and more knowledge is lost. Does anyone actually understand what the Schism involves at this point?

Let’s try to move beyond the fog of war and carefully analyze the strategic dynamics of VFD before and after the Schism. Only then will we propose a frightening theory on the reasons which led to this great divide… after the cut.

10 Things I Hate About You

Originally posted by tvd-tw-ships

Pairing: Isaac Lahey x Reader

Requested: Nope

Summary: Isaac gets paid to ask you out on a date but ends up falling for you

GIF Not Mine

Isaac knew he screwed up when he started falling for you. He didn’t mean for it to happen but the more he hung out and got to know you the more he liked you. He was only supposed to ask you out so your sister could start dating Jackson. Jackson had paid Isaac to do so and at the start of it all he cared about was the money. At first you weren’t interested and denied his requests of taking you out so Isaac brought it upon himself to find out about the things you like and your interest which seemed to have worked as you finally said yes.

The next step was for Isaac to take you to prom, again getting paid to do so. You were against going to prom and didn’t want to go but Isaac was insistent on you going which only made you suspicious of what his game was. Your sister however was begging you to go as if you didn’t go it means she couldn’t go. Eventually you succumbed and accepted Isaac’s invite to prom.

Prom was going great. You were dancing with Isaac while you sister was with Jackson. Your sister however finally realised Jackson’s intentions and was angry with him which resulted in him revealing the whole deal him and Isaac had. You had overheard this and left heartbroken with Isaac calling after you apologising. The whole night you cried, you broke down letting the tears fall freely not caring who could hear. The first time in a long time you gave your heart to someone for it only to be broken. While you were in bed crying yourself to sleep Isaac was feeling terrible. You were the first girl he truly had feelings for and he ruined it by agreeing to the stupid deal. He should have never taken the money and broken your heart.

The next morning in English class the assignment was due in. You had to write a poem based on William Shakespeare’s Sonnet 141. “I assume you’ve all done the assignment.” The teacher said looking around the room at everyone. “Who’s brave enough to read theirs out?” No one put their hand up. Instead they all looked around at each other trying to not get picked by the teacher. You did the same and your eyes landed on a solemn looking Isaac. Your gaze snapped back to the front and you took a breath, raising your hand.

“I will.” You volunteered. The teacher nodded and gestured for you to take the front of the classroom. When you got up to the front you looked around at everyone’s faces, who’s attention was now on you, and saw Isaac’s looking at you with interest. You cleared your throat and tucked a loose strand of hair behind your ear. “I hate the way you talk to me and the way you cut your hair. I hate the way you drive my car. I hate it when you stare. I hate your big dumb combat boots and the way you read my mind. I hate you so much that it makes me sick. It even makes me rhyme.” You paused taking a breath before going onto the next verse. “I hate it- I hate the way you’re always right. I hate it when you lie. I hate it when you make me laugh. Even worse when you make me cry.” Tears were now threatening to fall. You looked up for a moment on the verge of tears trying to will away the tears but it didn’t work so you carried on not caring that you were showing your vulnerable side to your whole class, even Isaac. “I hate the way you’re not around and the fact that you didn’t call. But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you. Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.”

Isaac knew the poem was about him which only made him feel even worse. He could see it in your eyes how much he hurt you and he would do anything to make you feel better. All he wanted to do was take the pain away that you were feeling. You were crying now and you couldn’t stand being in the same room as him any longer as it hurt too much, you just had to get out of there. You walked away from your previous position at the front, heading straight to the door leaving Isaac to contemplate how to make it right with you.

Summary: You’re the leading superhero of the city, and you’ve fought Dynamo for years. It’s the way it should be - good vs. evil, hero vs. villain. But what happens when a bigger evil threatens everything?

The warehouse is dark. Really dark.

Your steps echo on the damp concrete ground, your bright fuschia suit dull and grey in the small light that streams through the holes in the roofing. You would use your powers to move around, maybe find a good hiding spot – but damn, it was getting even darker. You can barely see a thing. From memory you know there should be a mezzanine lining the back wall and a couple of storage units right about –

“Fuck!” you hiss as you crash into something heavy and metal. There was the storage unit, so the mezzanine stairs should be to your left. Maybe you can hide up there to get a good look at the playing field. If only it weren’t so goddamned dark. Your arch nemesis really had great taste.

Student launches effort to help inner-city youth

July 23, 1995. By Martha Gold.

Local resident Dmitri Krushnic had his eyes opened when he moved to Chicago to attend college. And after they were opened, Krushnic, 20, had a vision: to bring together inner-city youths to learn about leadership.

“The University of Chicago is a primarily white campus,” Krushnic, 20, said at a car wash he was running to raise money for a conference he is coordinating with other college students. “But the surroundings are not. You walk about two blocks away from campus and you’re in a ghetto.”

A product of progressive schooling, Krushnic, who graduated from the Greenfield Center School and Northfield Mount Hermon, found himself wanting to help out and get involved with the teenagers who lived in the Southside neighborhood surrounding the university.

With the help of Vicki Vantoch, a fellow University of Chicago student, Krushnic started a volunteer non-profit group, Youth for a Better America, designed to decrease youth violence and racial tensions by bringing a diverse group of young people together to discuss and work out their differences.

Krushnic and Vantoch originally tried to arrange for an annual conference in Chicago, but didn’t get the help they needed.

“I had trouble rallying any kind of activity at school,” Krushnic said. “Students there are so apathetic … it really grossed us out.”

So Krushnic turned to his mother, who lives at the Center for Cultural Evolution in Colrain. The six-month-old conference center hosts weekend workshops on a variety of peace-oriented issues.

In Franklin County, Krushnic said, he was able to get a lot more support and help from local businesses, schools and organizations. Yesterday, for example, several of Krushnic’s friends, including University of Massachusetts student Ben Block, volunteered to wash cars at the Palmer Gas Station in Greenfield.

LiteLife, Energy Foods and Dominos have all donated food and teachers and staff from Greenfield Community College, Family Planning of Western Massachusetts and Northfield Mount Hermon School are volunteering their time as teachers and counselors. The Traprock Peace Center in Deerfield also has extended its non-profit status to the fledgling group.

“You usually don’t see people rallying around something that they don’t see,” Krushnic said. “But violence in youth in the cities is a symptom of a greater social problem.”

Krushnic said his group plans a conference, entitled Youth Conference for a Better America, to be held Aug. 19-26 at the Center for Cultural Evolution. The conference would bring 20 girls from different cities, races, cultural and economic groups together to participate in discussions and workshops. The main objective behind the conference is to carry the YBA’s philosophy to the girls through a series of discussions, workshops and classes. After the conference, mentors from each of the participants’ hometowns would continue to work with the girls to help them carry out the YBA’s philosophy in their schools.

Because of the lack of privacy between the individual rooms at CCE, Krushnic said the coordinators for YCBA chose to keep the conference single-sex. They chose girls because recent studies show that pre-adolescent girls have less confidence than boys, he said.

“Since one of YCBA’s goals is to create strong leaders and girls this age are losing confidence to be leaders, we decided girls needed an opportunity to come together at a conference designed just for them,” a pamphlet explaining the conference states.

Since most of the girls are coming from low-income families, Krushnic and other coordinators are raising money to pay their way. Anyone interested in donating or volunteering as a youth counselor should contact Krushnic at XXX-XXXX.

  • big state university
  • diana is the genial new professor in the desperately under-funded art history program and is trying to escape the shadow of her mother, hippolyta, who was an internationally lauded sculptor until she dropped out of the scene to join a lesbian commune in the late 70s alongside her sister, antiope, and the love of her life, a trans vietnam vet named phillipa
  •  diana left the commune after high school and became an expert in antiquities
  •  she is also an excellent volunteer self-defense teacher at the local women’s shelter
  • she’s known she’s bi since she was about 12 and just broke up with long time gf stevie, who went off to do the peace corps
  • on the other side of campus, isabel is the icy assistant chair of the extremely competitive & well-funded biochemistry honors program
  • she has a rep for being all business but that’s in part because until recently she was having a very clandestine affair with a fellow professor, who just decided to accept her high school boyfriend’s proposal even though isabel had told her she was in love with her
  • isabel has either glowing or scathing reviews on ratemyprofessor.com mostly based on whether the reviewer wanted to work hard in her class 
  • almost all reviews mention as her defining feature the partial facial prosthetic she wears over the third degree burn she got while conducting an experiment while pursuing her ph.d
  • she had a conservative upbringing and remains distant from her parents, has never come out to them or anyone at work besides her now ex
  • state cutbacks hit the university hard & when the university president holds an open forum abt how best to handle funding reduction across depts, diana gets on the mic and starts advocating for cuts to the sciences since they are the most well-funded
  • isabel of course hops on the mic afterwards and goes on a tirade abt the irrelevancy of the arts in this day and age & it get v heated
  • they both get kicked out of the meeting and are walking off to their respective cars in a huff when a dumbass in a hummer almost runs down isabel in the parking lot. diana pushes her out of the way just in time & in the aftermath, isabel kind of accidentally gives diana her number?
  • they end up going to extreme lengths to convince the other of the value of their respective field & also they are extremely gay and in love & it is very healing
