“I Make The Reporter Beatbox” (Lin/Reader)

Ah yes, POV Switch day for @hamwriters write-a-thon. I was looking forward to this, but at the same time I wasn’t because I was afraid I’d slip back into second person accidentally, but I don’t think I did. I’m really proud of this, but kudos to @psychedemigod for the idea and encouragement and many gifs.

Also??? I have 193 followers? Thank you all so much! I’ll try to write some back up fics to post on some type of schedule once writeathon is over!

Warnings: Beatboxing? Coffee? Cookies? Nothing much, really. It’s p fluffy.

Words: 1000 (u g h so pleasing <3)

“Well you know,” I started, knowing the reaction I was to expect. “I make the reporter beatbox.” I cross my arms and see the reporter’s eyes go wide. I didn’t exactly know why, but I had a feeling that they would impress me and give me what I had been waiting for from a reporter. They seemed to know something about what they were doing with the actual interview and I was hoping they’d know what to do when beatboxing.

“Uh, well… Shit… I mean, I can do it! Alright, uh, I haven’t beatboxed since late high school or early college, Jesus Christ…” They laugh, rubbing their neck, setting their list of questions down on the table beside us. I cross my arms and smile at them, waiting.

Chapter One - Tea and Tropes

It was later in the morning than he had planned when he stepped out of the hotel, hoping to grab a quick coffee and find a quiet place to sit and go over some of the talking points that Luke had emailed to him for the next day’s round of press. As he strolled through the neighborhood, he noted the trend toward small, niche shops: two different bookstores (he’d come back to those), a promising-looking bakery that had the block smelling of cardamom and yeast (another to check in on later), several small vintage and antique shops with elaborately decorated windows, a pizza place that looked like it predated the neighborhood Renaissance so it must be good, and finally, about five blocks from where he had started, a tidy but homey little coffee shop tucked in between a candle shop and a bar.

jace/simon + the accidental first date (2.7k)

simon is contemplating the merits of daydrinking.

he’s standing with jace, a block down from the restaurant where they’re supposed to be meeting clary, wondering if his silent pleas for her to hurry are actually working, and wholeheartedly wishing he was drunk right now.

it had been clary’s idea for the three of them to grab lunch in the first place. she picked the restaurant where she and simon had gone to celebrate when simon realized he could eat human food again (as opposed to humans as food, which simon does not miss at all).

simon had agreed because clary asked, and he imagines that jace agreed for similar reasons. and now they’re both standing here, sans clary, basically suffering. simon gave up long ago on ever trying to speak to jace without a guardian present; it’s too difficult and probably also extremely dangerous. this concept, of course, was not at all inspired by his massive, embarrasing crush on jace.

simon is at a loss. this is nothing like when he had unrequited feelings for clary. at least with her he knew how to hold a conversation. maybe it wasn’t always what he wanted to say, but he could string together sentences full of actual words, which is a feat that seems almost impossible right about now, with jace three feet in front of him, looking some ethereal combination of bored and stupidly hot.

and that’s it. simon can’t take the silence anymore. he’s gotta say something.

Practically Perfect | Oh Sehun


Word Count -1.8k

Summary - In which your best friend keeps insisting for you to date her boyfriends friend and you refuse to meet him. Little do you know that fate had exactly that planned for you…



“I shall be alone forever and I’m fine with it” I ended the on-going debate about my ever-so happening  love life, flopping down on the couch as she simply rolled her eyes at my persistent words

“Well, you shouldn’t be hun” She trailed.

“You should be happy, that you have a perfect boyfriend and a perfect life” I sighed.

“Don’t you think I’d want that for my Best Friend too?” She asked.

“Not everyone’s perception of perfect is the same hun. Trust me, I’m fine” I lied. She gave me a slight nod and went on with her report on her laptop, but I knew she wasn’t satisfied with my answer. Relationships aren’t really my thing. That’s a lie; I just don’t know how to keep one. I just like to stay in my own bubble considering the fact that I am the most socially awkward person on earth.

“So Luhan’s friends are going to come over in a few.” She informed. “I was thinking you’d want to meet them” She suggested. In case you want to know, she has been in a secret relationship with Luhan; secret being required as he is a part of one of the biggest boy groups in K-pop. Yeah, no thanks. Now, I might be coming off as rude, or unsociable but give me a break. I already went to that party last week. So the amount energy and effort I will put into meeting someone new is running very low at the moment.

“Great! So that you can set me up with one of those dimwits” I rolled my eyes and she gave me a glare

“They’re not dimwits, they’re actually great guys” She sighed, looking up at me

“Great! Okay. How about, you sit here and make me a list of all of the reasons why they’re great guys, while I go on a little drive to clear my mind” I emptily suggested, getting up and grabbing my bag

“You’re going to have to socialize with someone sooner or later Y/N” I heard Y/BF/N exclaim from behind me

“I choose later.” I laughed as I went out the door. The fact that I’m 20 years old and people had to force me to get out and socialize was quite worrying, but oh well!

My aimless drive brought me to the front of a small bubble-tea shop that I’d been contemplating to visit for a while, so I decided now was a good time to try something new since I’m clearly not capable of doing that naturally. Standing in line, I began to search through the menu on wall, my only view blocker being the lean figure of a fairly young looking guy standing in front of me. Subconsciously analysing his tall and pale form, I mindlessly began to walk forward just as he turned around to return to his place, causing us both of us to collide. The absolutely best part being, the fact that he spilled his chocolate tea all over my white sweatshirt! Perfect. Now I had a huge chocolate stain on my favourite sweatshirt and whoop! Everyone can see my bra. How. Bloody.Wonderful.

“Omo! I waited half an hour for that bubble-tea!” The boy whined, the depth of his voice shining through. Damn! It’s going to be hard to get mad at him. Light-brown fringe sticking to his ever so slightly dampened forehead as he carried an annoyed scowl; he hinted how much he was pissed about his tea. He was wearing a tank top that showcased his muscles as he moved. He was well built with beautifully sculpted biceps and lean, long and toned legs. He noticed me basically checking him out, so I quickly retorted from analysing his body, to analysing how mad I was at him.

“Well next time you should see where you’re going!” I snapped, trying not to get too annoyed as he rolled his eyes.

“An apology would be appreciated” He simply said pushing my annoyance level to its highest point

“Are you being serious!? You just spilled all of your freaking bubble-tea all over my WHITE sweatshirt! And you demand an apology!?” I finally lashed out. By this time he looked furious and it seemed like we were the current centre of attention.

“Seriously, you’re making a scene out of nothing. Just apologise and we’ll call it even” He half requested, half- demanded and I lost it.

“If I don’t think I’m in the wrong, I will never apologise” I sent him a sickening sarcastic smile .I soon took a note of my surroundings and realised that literally everyone at the café were staring at us and I started feeling really self-conscious. I pulled out my wallet and slapped notes into his hand. “Pay for your precious tea” I rolled my eyes as I dashed out of the café feeling extremely awkward.

I drove straight back to my house and walked in on Y/BF/N and Luhan making out on the couch. There’s an image for ya! But the pissed off expression on my face and the huge stain on my sweatshirt, kind of broke them apart.

“You okay Y/N?” Y/BF/N asked wearing a worried expression on her face, getting up and sorting her clothes out.

“Yeah! Yeah. I’m perfectly fine! A complete and utter asshole spilled his bubble-tea all over my new white sweatshirt, made a huge deal about how I should’ve apologised and now I’m really pissed off! But I’m fine!” I yelled.

“Right… That seems like something Sehun would do” Chuckled Luhan and I shot him a death glare.

“Okay. You might want to get changed Baekhyun and Sehun will be here in a few” She informed and I just groaned and went up to my room. Y/BF/N was the mom of the house I guess, but it’s one of the things I love about her. I took a shower trying to get rid of the stickiness -although I didn’t mind smelling like chocolate-  and changed into comfier clothes.

I flopped down on onto my bed and went straight onto my phone. In the process of aimlessly scrolling through my Tumblr dashboard, I heard a familiar voice entering the living room and things seemed quite suspicious. As I walked out of my bedroom, I stopped dead on my tracks. It was him.

“You!?”  We both exclaimed as we caught a glimpse of each other from across the room. I also spotted a tall black haired guy sprawled across our sofa, looking up from his phone to watch the show that was about to go down.

"Well, you two have clearly met…” Luhan awkwardly trailed

“Yeah, no kidding! This is the asshole I was talking about! Thanks for ruining the sweatshirt by the way” I snapped as he simply rolled his eyes

“This is the clutz I was talking about. Still have the stain” He pointed towards his now sticky white tank-top and it was now my turn to roll my eyes. Eye-liner guy seemed to be enjoying this whole scene as he kept giggling

“Okay Y/N, calm down. It was just an accident. I think you should be the bigger person and just apologise to him” Y/BF/N came beside me and calmed me down as I rolled my eyes

“I’ll be in my room” I huffed stomping away

Sehun’s POV

I had to admit, I was a d*ck about wanting her to apologise. I mean it was clearly my fault, but it was something about admitting my mistake to her that didn’t seem appealing. I know, I’m a d*ck. But did anyone notice how her (Y/E/C) eyes sparked whenever she talked to me, or how her sharp jaw clenched whenever she was angry. She’s pretty hot, I mean I was going to make a move at the café, but we weren’t exactly in liking position.

“You want to change into a fresh T-shirt” Luhan asked patting me on the shoulder as he got up from the couch and I nodded. “I’ll go get you one” He said

“Lu! Could you get me the dip from the shelf” His girlfriend requested and he gave me an apologetic look

“It’s a small flat, just go down the hall and it’s the second door to the right. Make sure you don’t get the wrong door, you wouldn’t want to encounter an angry Y/N” He chuckled.

I lightly laughed and made my way down the hall. By the time I was in the hallway, I was already confused as to which door I was looking for. I just grabbed onto a random handle and stumbled into the exact room I wasn’t supposed to be in. I innocently smiled and looked up at her scowling face

“May I help you?” She asked not-so-sincerely

“Ohm, Y/BF/N’s room? - I –Uh-Need -A -T-shirt” I coughed as she giggled. I loved how her (Y/E/C) eyes lit up when she was looking down at me. They almost looked like they had tiny golden flakes running through them against the million fairy lights she had hung up in her room


I looked at him for a long while, carefully picking out his features. He had an amazing jaw line and cheekbones, silky brown hair and the most gorgeous chocolate brown eyes. I’m checking him out again! Damnit! But this time, he didn’t notice as he was practically doing the same to me

“The next door across the hall to your right” I finally spoke after our eternity of silence, but he seemed confused “Y/BF/N’s room” I clarified and he nodded getting up off the ground. As he began to walk out, I turned my attention back to my laptop, lightly smiling to myself.

“Hey! – Uh…” He trailed coming back to my room

“Y/N” I smiled and he smiled back. Okay, he’s not cute, he’s adorable! With a combination of hot as well, which is- Getting off topic!

“Yeah, I’m sorry for the whole tea spilling thing, I should’ve apologized but I don’t-“  He babbled

“It’s fine, I’m the one who should be apologizing for being a brat about this whole situation” I cut him off, but he seemed some-what relived because I forgave him. He gave me one last smile before proceeding to leave my room again, when I called him back

“Sorry, I didn’t catch your name” I shyly smiled

“The names Sehun. Oh Sehun” He introduced in a deep voice and we both fell into fits of laughter seconds later. “Hey, where’s the room again?” he asked as we caught or breaths and I rolled my eyes

“Next door across the hall to your right. Try not to get lost” I smiled which earned a chuckle from him as he left. Score! What? No. Totally not into him. Who am I kidding, he’s practically perfect.

Back to writing Scenarios and One shots! I have a request which I am currently working on, so this was a little coming back post :) My requests are open so please do request if you’d like and I’ll see you later Loves!

If Rachael Ray married Bobby Flay her name would be…

-A dish of warmed-up food left over from a previous meal.

French, from réchauffé warmed-over, from past participle of réchauffer to warm over, from ré- re- + chauffer to warm, from Middle French chaufer.
First Known Use: 1805

Used in a sentence:
“Mom’s making something called réchauffé à micro-ondes, fancy!“

~ We are delighted to announce that our Kickstarter campaign in support of the Grandiloquent Word of the Day 2018 Wall Calendar has been launched!



are you a console player who can’t maintain happiness in your settlements because the citizens don’t have a place to drop their dumpage? Are you going to build a new settlement and want to take preliminary cautions against an outbreak of the dirty squirties? Here is my tried and true method of creating your basic shitshack, or bathrooms, if you will. All you’ll need is steel, wood, and ceramic. 

the first step is to select a shack wall from the workshop menu. You can choose any you’d like but I prefer one with a full wall for optimal privacy. Once you snap it down in the place where you want your toilets to be, select another and angle right so that it snaps into place onto its brother. The result will be a shotgun shack looking thing like so: 

after that, select a shack corner wall, again something that offers coverage of whoever is dropping their kids off at the pool or taking a bath to get all that ghoul cum out of their various crevices. Snap two into place on one of the ends, like so:

right now the inside of the shack should look like this

but hold onto your honkers cause we’re not done yet! Now, select one more wall corner, and snap it onto the other end. But! Just one. Not two, or else you’ll create a hyper cube with no entrance or exit. It should look like this:

This is where are toilet will be. Snap a wall end of your choice onto there to round it off, and then place your toilet there

viola! a private area to cut your chocolate logs. Feel free to put some grognak comics or boston bugles around there if you want. 

the next part is putting another wall end up in the middle of the shack as a divider, like so: 

this is important, because behind this wall will be the bathtub, and this divider will prevent the other townsfolk from seeing you suds up your ass. 

ta da! Now, you could call it quits here, or you could put up some decor in the form of informative signs on the outside of the shack: 

now this is the basic formula, and can be altered to suit your needs, whether you need multiple shitters or something compact. Good luck! 

DIY Tidy Takeout Container

A handsome way to tackle the menu/take out/ordering clutter: Craft a wall-mount menu holder like the one here. We cut plywood to size and framed it with 1x2s, then made an angled bin from a 1x4, cut into two wedges, and lauan and molding. A coat of milk paint gives it a pop of sunny color, and a rectangle of green chalkboard paint lets you customize a message—or scribble down your order.

Horseshoe Cafe, Southport, CT

When I was home visiting my folks over Easter weekend, I mentioned a couple buddies of mine who are regulars at a bar called the Horseshoe Tavern. My dad commented that he used to drink there when he was younger but hadn’t been back in over 50 years! So we all jumped in the car and went for a ride…

It’s a “cafe” now, but even if you’re drunk and hunched over, you can find the place…

My dad remembers the Horseshoe being a dive back in his day, and it’s still a dive now, in the best sense of the word…

As for its name, before being converted into a bar in 1934, the Horseshoe used to be… a horseshoe factory! Pictures on the menus and walls take you back to that time…

They’ve got HD TVs and Two Roads beers on tap now, but the menu hasn;t changed much, still featuring their “Famous Shoe Cheese”…

Swiss, bacon and thousand island dressing on rye…

Crisp and crunchy as you bite in…

All melty and meaty in your mouth…

Hearing my mom and dad tell stories of their time there back in the day made our visit the Shoe that much more meaningful. Right near the Southport train station, the Horseshoe Cafe is a Connecticut classic where folks from all different generations meet and mingle and make new memories of their own.

Better Safe than Sorry (Stiles/Derek)

So, I hadn’t planned to write a sequel to Sooner or Later, but my muse wanted to revisit this world when she saw this prompt. I hope you don’t mind, bb! Also hope you enjoy this!  Sequel to Sooner or Later  

#8 in my 2017 Prompt Challenge

Better Safe than Sorry. Stiles/Derek. Teen. Also on AO3.

Stiles, Derek, and Isaac check out the area where Paige Krasikeva was likely kidnapped by their perp. 

The area where Paige Krasikeva was last seen is a twenty-minute drive from her apartment. It probably takes longer during different times of the day, but there’s no traffic at five in the morning. They’ve just left Raleigh Heights, where they’d gone to speak with her roommate, the one that actually called in the report because Paige isn’t the type to run late without calling. Now, they’re on the way to the place where Paige was likely taken since a patrol unit found her car nearby.

The menus in Dead Space (outside of the options menu) are all presented in an in-game display that either emits from Isaac’s helmet, or from a projector on the wall. These menus reinforce the inability to escape the environment, as well as provide a unique method of letting the game continue playing out while A) allowing the player to customize/adjust their weapons and armor, and B) provide that functionality without actually pausing the game.
