we should have lost this game

Random Sonic Thoughts # 1

I’m pretty sure I’ve talked about this before but I just really need to vent.


Something that has bothered me in the game canon, is the fact that Sonic and Amy’s relationship is so underdeveloped. Like, it never goes anywhere. And I’m not just talking about on a romantic level, I’m also talking on a platonic one as well. The closest was Unleashed, which seemed to last no more than two cutscenes. I just want to see more than the tired chase between the two. It was funny in the beginning but now it’s just tiring. She’s one of his oldest friends and it should show. Instead we get stuff like this:

Ugh. This just makes Amy look desperate and Sonic come off like a jerk. But I will give credit when credit is due. In more recent games like Lost World and Lego Dimensions (non-canon but it’s still something), they can have normal conversations without Amy getting obsessive and Sonic doesn’t get nearly as irritated as he did in past games. I think the rebooted Archie comics are a good example of how I’d want their relationship to be portrayed :

This, in my opinion, is a good way to portray their relationship. It doesn’t come off as a cheap gag for the sake of comedy and both characters can still be in character. I believe in the hands of the right writer, their relationship can be portrayed in a good way. All in all, I just think it would be nice if the games showed off their friendship at least, it’s long overdue in my opinion.



I plan on doing more rants like this in the future because I just can’t hold things in lol. Anyways, thanks for reading.

heartwithnobeat  asked:

I have to be honest, after the CoCo, Emrakul and now this format, esp when combined with you missing an infinite combo you should have seen in, I have lost all faith in R and D to create a functioning standard format. Can you give me a reason to believe in you going forward? Not trying to hate or be mean, just very disillusioned ring now.

Design’s job is to take a blank piece of paper four times a year (more if you count supplemental products) and find new and exciting design space we haven’t found in the first twenty of years of making this game and then satisfy a giant audience that all want different things for a wide variety of ways to play.

And between design and development, I think we have the easier job.

Building a constructed environment that’s complex enough that millions of players won’t crack it in a hour yet robust enough that it creates a variety of options is difficult. Development can’t solve it because then it wouldn’t be complex enough. They have to make something with the potential to become something bigger.

And if they miss one thing, one card interaction, one combo, one rules trick, the dominoes start to fall because future testing is building from a faulty premise.

And that’s not taking into account that they’re doing this with card sets that are constantly evolving and for many interactions of Standard all at the same time. Plus all the while also watching over Sealed and Draft.

Development works very hard to bring you balanced and fun formats. And yes, there’s the occasional stumble, but that’s only because what’s being asked of them is so incredibly difficult.

Happy birthday, Draco

June 5, 1999

Hermione and Ron burst through the door to the eighth-year common room, late to Draco’s birthday party. Pansy seemed to relax when she saw them. “Did you finish?” she whispered. Hermione didn’t answer, but she and Ron looked pleased.

Pansy had decorated the room; there were magical balloons dancing across the ceiling, charmed sparklers letting off arrays of tiny fireworks, and tables loaded with snacks and drinks. Seamus and Dean sat on a sofa chatting with Theo and Padma; Neville was dancing with Susan; Blaise and Parvati were Sonorused on a makeshift stage, performing wizard karaoke. Harry and Draco stood by the food, laughing and drinking Firewhiskey.

No one had wanted a party on May 2, but the end of the school year deserved some commemoration. At the beginning of the year, things had been tense. In the first week, Pansy and Hermione hexed each other, Neville stood up to Blaise, and Harry and Draco came to blows (with fists). But that seemed like ages ago, and now they were all a bit sad about leaving. Draco turning 19 three days before their last day of Hogwarts was a perfect excuse to celebrate and also to drown their apprehension about the future in Firewhiskey and loud music.

We are so privileged to have something as great as video games that a lot of the time we all forget that video games are meant to have fun. How you have that fun shouldn’t matter. What’s fun for you may not be fun for someone else and vice versa. But no one else should be put down because of what brings THEM joy.

anonymous asked:

What would it take for you to come back and be a fan again?

I’m not sure that’s possible. I’m so apathetic right now that I can’t see myself ever being a fan again, but I’ll answer this anyway. These are the tips I have for Starz/Sam/Cait to heal the fandom and to possibly gain back the fans they’ve lost…

- No more abuse of shippers. Enough is enough. You have the power to stop it. We are not the evil bullies that we’ve been made out to be for so long. We do not deserve the constant harassment. It’s something that has an actual affect on real people. Do you want to be responsible for someone else’s pain? This game of Chinese whispers has gotten so out of hand. Any rumour that’s being spread by someone about someone else should not be believed unless it can be backed up with solid proof. 

- No more games. No more innuendo laden IG posts. If you say you want to keep your personal life private then do so. Stop letting people close to you taunt the fandom. Just be honest. Own your narrative and your partners. I promise it will be for the best and you’ll gain back that privacy you say you want so badly.

- Proper show promo. S3 may be four months away but that doesn’t mean there can’t be something posted each week to excite fans. Pictures, tweets, bts videos, unseen interviews, audition tapes, competitions etc would be perfect.

- No more over the top flirting if it’s not genuine. Seriously. I’m all for banter and cute exchanges every now and then but playing crotch hockey at T2 was a step too far if the real SO was behind the scenes watching it all go down. If you really are just friends then prove it. 

- Treat ALL fans with respect. Shippers deserve to be here just as much as any other fan. We’ve been loyal to you. We’ve supported you. That’s all we want in return.

That’s all I can think of right now. Obviously I’m not demanding any of this, just some friendly advice….

The first time Auston Matthews met Mike Babcock, it was in the Detroit Red Wings’ coaches office at Joe Louis Arena.


Matthews was 17, playing for USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program about 45 minutes west in Ann Arbor. His coach was Don Granato, brother of Tony Granato, assistant to Babcock in Detroit.


The morning of a Red Wings game, Matthews and teammate Matthew Tkachuk came with Don Granato to watch practice and preview life in the NHL. Babcock had seen them play against the University of Michigan, and he told Matthews, “You’re a good player, but you can’t let your talent make up for your work ethic.”


“It’s something that I’ve always remembered,” Matthews said.


-


Matthews grew up in Scottsdale, Ariz., and didn’t realize how good he was until he tried out for the NTDP and stood out against the best players of his age group in the United States. It gave him top coaching, top teammates, top competition and experiences like meeting Babcock.


It also gave a glimpse of his personality: humble but confident, calm but competitive, unaffected and unafraid, the kind of person who could play pro hockey in Switzerland at 18, play in the World Cup of Hockey 2016 before his NHL debut and star in Toronto without acting much like a star.


“I really enjoyed my time there, thought I learned a lot, really progressed as a player, as a person,” Matthews said. “Some of my closest friends kind of come from those two years.”


Matthews lived in a suburban subdivision with his billet family: Brian and Heidi Daniels, their sons Cole and Camden, and teammate Luke Opilka. He kept his room clean, brought down his own laundry, made his own breakfast and lunch. One day, the family brought home some mulch. He grabbed a shovel and helped spread it out.


-


“I’ve never met a more competitive kid,” said Camden Daniels, now 15. “If he lost, you weren’t going to hear the end of it for a couple days.”


But you wouldn’t hear much about ice hockey.


“Whenever we went out to dinner or anything and some of my friends would be with him … Everyone knew how good he was, and he would just play it off like it was nothing basically,” Camden Daniels said. “You would have never thought he was doing what he was doing.

Hello! I was wondering if you could write headcannons for MC ignoring the RFA+V+Saeran (separately) because they did something stupid, and they get MC's attention by kissing her out of the blue? Thank you!! I love your blog (:

Thank you!
Honestly ignoring people when they’re being stupid can be really satisfying (but I would give in so easily to Zen tbh).
I couldn’t think of how to start a couple of them off because I couldn’t think of what they would do that would be annoying, so I’m sorry about that! This took way too long for me to finish writing…

Yoosung:
-He requires constant attention from you to function.
-All of the sudden, you stopped communicating with him.
-No eye contact, no words, nothing.
-He gets very lonely very fast.
-What could he have done to make you this upset and how can he fix it?
-“Hey, _____? Why are you ignoring me?”
-His voice sounds so sad you almost give in right then and there to comfort him.
-But you persevere.
-“Did I do something wrong…?”
-You still avoid his eyes and he frowns. He’s getting really, really lonely now.
-He wraps his arms around your shoulders from behind and nuzzles his head into yours.
-“_____~~” he whines.
-dang it stay strong
-“What’s wrong~? Please talk to me~…”
-*internally screaming*
-He gives up after whining in your ear for a solid five minutes.
-An idea hits him.
-He moves in front of you and notices you staring at your feet to keep from looking at him. He frowns before brushing some hair out of your face. You still don’t budge.
-So, as his last resort, he lifts your chin and kisses you deeper than he ever has before.
-You almost choke because you were not expecting that.
-He pulls away and takes a deep breath.
-“Are you gonna stop ignoring me and tell me what’s wrong?”
-Yes definitely

Zen:
-Zen needs lots of attention 24/7.
-But he has been only talking in lines from his script and at first it was charming but it’s just gotten annoying.
-He notices you starting to get annoyed with him and he finds it cute so he doesn’t get the message at first to shut up.
-He tries to apologize and he’s super dramatic and pouty when you ignore him.
-“But, ___, do you not love me anymore?”
-“Come on, dear. I miss your voice~”
-He tries to charm his way into making you pay attention to him but alas it does not work.
-So he just pouts and leans his head against your shoulder, nuzzling into you while groaning.
-“_____~” he says in a whiny tone. “Stop ignoring me~”
-Honestly he’s making to difficult to ignore him but you keep reminding yourself about  how annoying he was.
-Zen becomes impatient and stands in front of you with a serious thinking face. You stare blankly of to the side to avoid eye contact.
-He swiftly grabs your cheek and dives in for a very deep kiss. You can feel this son of a bitch smirking into the kiss too when he feels you tense up because he knows it means he has your attention now.
-Zen pulls away with a grin while you stare at him with wide eyes. “Oh, I have your attention?”
-Embarrassed, you swipe his hand from your face and turn away.
-“Aw~ don’t be embarrassed~” he cooed in your ear and kisses your cheek. “I’m sorry for annoying you earlier. Forgive me?”

Jaehee:
-She’s been watching a new DVD all day long.
-When you tried to join her or ask her about something, she would shoo you away.
-Fine, be that way.
-You resort to just ignoring her like she’s neglecting you.
-You sit in another room and decide to occupy yourself with something just like she’s occupied with that damned DVD (like reading, playing video games, etc.).
-After she finished her DVD, she came to you and started talking to you about it.
-“So whoever casted them for that role made a poor decision because the character seemed so useless- …Are you even listening to me, _____?”
-You didn’t look up from what you were doing and continued to ignore her.
-“_____…? Hello?”
-No response.
-“Why are you ignoring me? Is it because of the DVD?”
-…
-She sighed but then devised a bold plan to get your attention.
-Jaehee gently grabbed your cheek and quickly brought your face to hers, capturing your lips in a very deep kiss.
-When she pulled away, you were breathless and staring at her with giant eyes.
-“Hi, _____.”
-“…Hello, Jaehee.”
-She smiled. “Good to have you back. I’m sorry for paying more attention to my DVD than to you. Next time, let’s watch it together.”
-You don’t even mind if you lost the page in your book or died in your video game because wow

Jumin:
-Whatever it was that he was doing must’ve been really annoying because you have stopped communicating with him completely.
-You coldly sit on the couch petting Elizabeth while ignoring Jumin as he tries to talk to you. He catches on quickly that you’re ignoring him on purpose.
-“Stop acting like a child, _____. If there’s an issue we should discuss it like adults.”
-This boy lectures you for being childish.
-But when he’s through with his speech, you’re still ignoring him.
-That’s when he too becomes a pouty little puppy.
-“Love? Please talk to me…”
-He’s playing the cute and desperate card oh no
-You keep strong and remain composed despite his whining.
-“I miss you… I need you…”
-Jumin Han I swear to god
-This is more difficult than you thought it would be. He’s acting so needy you almost cave. Almost.
-“Please, dearest, talk to me.”
-He’s quickly becoming depressed but he’s not giving up, especially when he got the idea to be bold to get your attention.
-“_____, stop ignoring me.” he said before holding the back of your neck and bringing you into a deep, deep kiss.
-Woah
-Woah
-He pulled away with a serious expression. “Are you through being childish yet?”
-“Uh-huh, yep, definitely,” you nodded with surprise.
-Jumin chuckled. “Good. Now, tell me what’s wrong.”

Saeyoung:
-Payback motherfucker
-All day he has just been picking on you. He wasn’t necessarily being mean to you, but he kept making fun of you.
-It was all in good fun but it got old real quick.
-He just wouldn’t stop. It got on your last nerve.
-You avoided his eyes and didn’t respond to anything he was saying. Needless to say, he picked up on your mood very quick.
-“Aw, c'mon _____, you know I’m just messing with you!”
-You just stared to the side.
-“I’m sorry, do you forgive me~?”
-Silence.
-…Okay now he’s starting to get sad.
-“_____, stop ignoring me~… Please? I didn’t mean anything I said.”
-Plz don’t be sad omg no
-“I’m sorry for joking around like that, just please forgive me.”
-“I’ll try to make it up to you if you just say the words.”
-After a few minutes of no results, he gets a bold idea he’s sure cannot fail.
-He stands in front of you and cups your cheeks. Your eyes dart up to meet his before he dives in to kiss you passionately.
-You honestly felt your knees getting weak.
-Saeyoung pulled back, breathing heavier than before. Your eyes were on him.
-“Oh~ Finally got your attention now~?”
-“Yeah, yeah,” you mutter and pull his hands off your face.
-He kisses your cheek before adding with a smile, “I’m sorry for picking on you. I’ll be nicer. Just tell me when you want me to stop and I’ll stop, okay?”

V:
-In your defense, he was ignoring you first.
-Well, he wasn’t purposely ignoring you, but whenever you tried to talk to him, he was busy with something else.
-Even if he was in the middle of some mundane everyday task, he would tell you we was too busy.
-You decide that you’ll just ignore him and see how he likes it because you’re that frustrated.
-He is so hurt and sad.
-how could you ignore such a ray of sunshine you’re hurting him have you no heart
-He takes it personally.
-“Are you ignoring me? …Why are you ignoring me? Did I do something?”
-Silence.
-“Whatever I did, I’m sorry. I’m really sorry for upsetting you.”
-oh my god stop it my heart hurts
-“If you just tell me what I did, I’ll never do it again. I promise.”
-why are you so precious
-“Please talk to me…?”
-He sighs when he realizes his words weren’t helping. There’s only one more thing he can think of that’ll get your attention.
-He smiles before stroking your cheek and planting a deep kiss your lips.
-The light “hmph!” noise you make as his lips contact yours makes V smile because it was cute, plus it means you’re finally paying attention.
-When V pulls away, you’re staring right into his eyes.
-“I’m sorry for whatever upset you, dear. Are you done ignoring me now?”

Saeran:
-again how could you ignore such a sweet little boy he needs love you heartless mistress
-He yelled at you because you were being too loud.
-His definition of “too loud” is apparently eating a bag of chips. (Which you may or may not have stolen from Saeyoung)
-Boi
-“Sorry, I’ll make sure to breathe quieter.” Those were the last words you said to him before giving him the silent treatment.
-Saeran is stubborn too, however. This is gonna take a while.
-When he sees that you won’t even look at him, he’s sad at first, but he only sees it as a challenge. In his mind, it’s like “well if you’re gonna ignore me, I’ll just ignore you too!”
-So neither of you speak or look at the other for a few days.
-Saeyoung obviously notices and asks Saeran what happened. He just told him to mind his own business.
-So instead, he asks you, and you tell him that Saeran was being stupid.
-Um.
-After a fourth day passes of not seeing or talking to you, Saeran calms down and realizes “okay I really cannot survive like this I’m sad and I need _____”
-He asks Saeyoung how to get you to forgive him and he smirks.
-Saeran wasn’t sure how this would work, but I guess he trusts Saeyoung about this.
-He marched up to you. “_____.”
-Nothing.
-He sucked his teeth. “_____, would you stop ignoring me already?”
-In a split second, Saeran’s hand was tangled in your hair and he was kissing you deeply and passionately.
-who the fuck are you and where is Saeran
-He pulled away and caught his breath, staring at you with nervous eyes that contrasted his confident behavior from seconds ago. “Okay, _____?”
-there he is
-“…I’m sorry, Saeran.”
-Saeran nudges you. “Don’t ignore me again, got it?”

BVB Feiertagsmagazin w/ Erik Durm - English translation
  • Nobby: Here he is! I'm very happy you've found your way to me once again, Erik. So far you haven't won a "Goal or No Goal" game against me, that's why I'm especially happy you're here today and I hope it stays that way. Are you confident?
  • Erik: Yeah, it didn't work out the last two times but I think it's finally time that I kick your ass.
  • Nobby: I'm excited! (laughs) Have you analysed the match against Benfica, yet?
  • Erik: Yeah, we talked about it in the hotel. Obviously, we were all sad about the result. I think our approach and way of playing was very good. I think Benfica only had one shot on goal, that one header, and otherwise we didn't give them any chances. Still sucks to lose 1:0 but we're confident that we'll be able to turn things around at home in front of our fans and proceed to the quarter finals.
  • Nobby: Have you ever experienced such a match? Being so dominant?
  • Erik: I don't think so, I mean I've only been here for 3 1/2 - 4 years and I haven't experienced something like it in that way. We were clearly the dominant team, we created many chances, even top-class ones, but yeah, sometimes the ball just doesn't want to get in. Sometimes there are matches like that. Nevertheless we have created a lot of chances, which was very important for us, for the team, and like I said we'll turn things around at home.
  • Nobby: You played badly in Darmstadt and lost, you played excellently in Lisbon and lost. Which face will we see on Saturday?
  • Erik: Well, I hope the one we showed in Lisbon only this time we of course want to get 3 points, we want to win. It's important for us to continue our home run and yeah, we feel good. Of course Darmstadt was a slip-up. Unfortunately, sometimes there are such games where nothing works out and the opponents surpass themselves and that was the case in Darmstadt. But it's still our own fault as well. But I think in Lisbon we showed a reaction and I think we'll be at the top of our game against Wolfsburg. We had 4 days to take a break and...
  • Nobby: And the spirit/mood/morale is good?
  • Erik: Well, yeah after Darmstadt we all were dejected, Lisbon as well, but looking at how we played I think we can look forward to Saturday with confidence.
  • Nobby: That's what you have to keep in mind and if you play like that on Saturday we won't lose.
  • Erik: Definitely!
  • Nobby: You're up against Wolfsburg. You usually say you don't look at how the opponent is doing. But we should and have to do that: they have won 2 of their last 4 games and lost the other 2. How do you rate/judge the team at the moment?
  • Erik: It's difficult to say something about Wolfsburg. They definitely have improved during the second half of the season, they have played good games, sometimes it's a bit of a surprise/lucky bag but to be honest, I haven't watched a lot of Wolfsburg matches. I'd rather focus on our team so I think if we follow through like we want to and if we play like on Tuesday against Lisbon we will win and we don't have to talk a lot about the others, just about us and then things will work out.
  • Nobby: Erik, you're free of injuries, you're a regular in the starting XI. Apart from the two losses how much do you enjoy your current situation?
  • Erik: Of course I enjoy it a lot. It's important for every player to be free of injuries and get playing time. I get that at the moment so I'm very happy but as I said my health is currently still my main focus.
  • Nobby: (touches Erik's knee) Is everything alright?
  • Erik: Yes, everything's ok. (both laugh) And yeah our manager is satisfied with our current performance as well and of course I'm always very self-critical. Especially after Darmstadt I was very self-critical and wasn't satisfied with myself but nevertheless I'm fit, I'm healthy and I'm happy about every minute I get.
  • Nobby: Currently, you're playing in midfield as a winger. You played the same position in the U23. Do you feel comfortable there?
  • Erik: Well, the midfield postion is mainly an offensive part, I'm still also playing in the back five in the defense. We always shift around a bit which works pretty well. Obviously, Schmelle and I always have to run a lot but I think we both know how to do that. That's why this position fits us well and yeah, being involved at the front is always fun...
  • Nobby: You were a striker originally, weren't you?
  • Erik: I was originally playing as a 9 so not that much on the wings but-
  • Nobby: You know how to score goals
  • Erik: One can hardly imagine, yeah. (both laugh) I had some inhibitions when I played for the Dortmund amateurs, didn't quite work out with scoring but after that I've become a defender pretty quickly, thanks to Kloppo, but it's still a lot of fun to be able to make a difference in the offense.
  • Nobby: The Süd will be empty. That will be a weird picture for all of us, for you as well?
  • Erik: Yes definitely! I mean, the atmosphere here in our stadium is always awesome. The süd being behind us is quite impressive. Especially when we play at home they encourage us and spur us on immensely. Yeah... it's such a shame that the Süd won't be there on Saturday.
  • Nobby: When you score a goal you'll still celebrate toward the Süd...
  • Erik: Yes! (both laugh) Yeah, if I score a goal, which for me doesn't happen that often, I'll still celebrate of course.

(Y/N point of view)

Being a new student at BHHS was difficult. As you weren’t familiar with the school, or it’s students. You heard that Beacon Hills was playing their rival…Devenford Prep. Since you hadn’t learned much about your high school, you assumed going to a lacrosse game would be a good way to get to know some of your classmates. As most of the guys played on the team. •••

As you arrived, the cool, fall air made you shiver.

“Damn…I should have brought a coat.” You scolded yourself. Lost in thought, you walked up the bleachers, and sat down on the cold, damp metal.

(Brett’s point of view)

The loud sound of the whistle filled the lacrosse field, bringing all your attention to the opposing team. Beacon Hills.

“You know you can beat them…I mean come on. You’re the team captain, Brett. Don’t get nervous, and lead your team” you thought to yourself, before stepping onto the field.

“Here we go.” You exclaimed, as the game began.

(Y/N point of view)

As the players violently ran into one and other, you couldn’t help but notice how your team captain, Scott McCall, was acting so…weird. From what you’ve heard, he was the star player. Yet, he had yet to make a shot. Devenford Prep was winning.

Scott began running towards the opposing net, he had the ball, and all he had to do was make this one shot to tie up the game….

You watched, as Scott ran full force to the net… The sudden sound of bone crushing sent chills down your spine…you could practically feel the pain yourself. The splintering bone, the agonizing pain of the break.

"Oh my god!” You yelled as you shot up to see who was hurt…and all you catch is a green number 28 laying on the ground.

His sudden outburst of pain caused the entire stadium to fall silent, just watching in anticipation.

He began sitting up, moving his injured leg ever so slightly, as medics ran over to him. They began to attempt to perform their job, but he stood up… As if nothing had happened. “What the hell…?” You wondered aloud.

(Brett’s point of view)

You stood up, slowly, wincing at the pain it caused your right leg, which began healing quickly. Looking around at all the astonished faces placed in the crowd, one seemed to catch your eye…a girl. She had gorgeous (Y/E/C) eyes, that seemed to sparkle in the light.

"TALBOT” a booming voice interrupted your thoughts.

"Y-yeah coach?” You managed to get out.

"Can you please explain to be what the hell that was? And why you’re not in the hospital right now?!”

"I’m not sure, coach. It didn’t hurt that bad..I’m good to play.”

"Mmm…I could have swore I heard…no, felt bones breaking. You tell me if anything goes wrong, Talbot. This is your team, and we need you to lead it.” •••

Devenford Prep won the game, and it ended up being one of Brett’s best games. After the incident, he scored every point offered, causing Beacon Hills to fall behind, resulting in a victory for Devenford Prep. ••• (Y/N point of view)

You stood up slowly after the game ended, waiting until all the other people left the bleachers before you attempted to leave. Walking down the stairs, shivering, you made your way out of the stands, but before you could walk to the parking lot, a hand grabbed your shoulder, yanking you back a little, resulting in a surprised scream.

"Sorry for scaring you…” The tall, Devenford Prep player explained, sheepishly taking his hand off you, and moving it to the back of his neck… A sign that he was embarrassed.

"Oh, it’s alright…I mean, I wouldn’t mind being stopped by someone so…gorgeo…oh my god, I mean…yeah. yeah. it’s okay.” You laughed nervously, earning you an adorable, lighthearted laugh from him.

"My names Brett.” He stated, happily. “I saw you in the stands earlier, and thought I’d say hi. Haven’t seen you here before.”

"I’m Y/N.” You smiled. “And yeah, I’m new here.” “Oh…and are you okay? That hit earlier seemed brutal.”

"Yeah..I’m fine. You’re right. Lacrosse is kinda brutal, sometimes.” He laughed.

The wind blew, causing you to start shivering, once again.

"Oh, here…” Brett said quietly, reaching in his bag, pulling out a green hoodie. “Hope you don’t mind it has my name on it…but you seem really cold” He winked at you.

"Yeah..thanks. And I don’t mind. It’s cool.” You laughed.

As you put it on, you couldn’t help but notice how good it smelt…it smelt like the woods, yet spicy, and sweet, all at once. It was amazing, and you loved it.

"Oh, hey, the bus is leaving…see you around, Y/N?” He asked before walking away.

"Yeah…..hopefully.” You said quietly as he ran to catch his school bus.

"Brett….Brett….Brett.” His name sounded so perfect. And you couldn’t get him off your mind. You laughed at yourself, causing you to hide your face…you inhaled that perfect scent again. How spicy, and sweet it was, and how it combined perfectly with the warm hoodie… hoodie…?

Brett’s hoodie.

OVER 1000 FOLLOWERS! YOOOO in just little over 4 months…..I’m speechless. 

I’m glad there are a lot of LuNa fans who enjoy my analysis and content and I appreciate each and every one of you who decided to follow me. 

I initially joined because I wanted the LuNa fandom to get more vocal and to celebrate more of our awesome pairing, especially with the abundance of moments and hints that we got last year! 

Since then, I noticed a shift in behavior and I’m glad it’s become what it is today. So many awesome analysis and reviewers along with the unison of the community :D

Since this is a big checkpoint for me, I wanted to take this opportunity and describe when and why I started shipping LuNa:

Like many of you, it was during the climax of the Arlong Park arc. There’s something special about the way it was executed and handled and it still stands as one of the most iconic arcs in all of OP. It is a testament that it has not been replicated or been compared to anything else, because there’s none like it. Oda made this arc all about Nami and her character. While at the same time Luffy is the one who ironically skips all the background info about Nami and still decides to recklessly crash a feared fishmen’s territory. All for the sake of making his navigator cry. Never, in all of OP, has Luffy done anything remotely similar for anyone else. He had no background info on her or the situation, blind faith in her character and actions, and complete anger while putting his life on the line for her without a legitimate reason. What sealed the deal for me was when Luffy takes the fight to Nami’s old room.

He gets a small glimpse of what her life must’ve been like and he absolutely loses it. Arlong couldn’t even move his damn sword an inch while Luffy was holding onto it with his mere fingers. Arlong should be grateful Luffy didn’t hear a word about what Arlong did to her step-mother otherwise he may have been the first villain to be actually killed (jk btw lol but he seriously would’ve lost much early on). Not only did Luffy become enraged of how Arlong treated Nami, he took it upon himself to make sure that room doesn’t exist! And he even says he will destroy any place she doesn’t want to be in! The world gov’t should be more afraid of Nami than Dragon because the second she starts to hate the world, it’s game over lol.

Anyways, that pretty much sums up when I started shipping this awesome pairing, and I hope we get many more moments to come. Ship on!!

Date Night

pairing: John x Reader

fandom: supernatural

prompt:  truth or dare +

I decided to flip a coin about every decision in my life for a week and that’s how we ended up on a date

@nekodemon73 @kumpmk @is-that-not-something @un-education @bookswillfindyouaway


“Is this some kind of joke?”

“N-no!” You say with as much determination as possible, staring right into his eyes without looking away, “I mean it.”`


You should have known better than to play games with Dean, you had been friends for years after all. He never lost, you never won. That didn’t stop you from trying every time though.

“You just made me run around the motel naked, don’t think you won’t get it back.”

“I can always say no, though.” Giving him a sweet smile you cross your legs on the floor and wait for his move. Truth or dare had started out as a harmless thing to pass the time until the next hunt but as it always was with you two, it hadn’t stayed that way for long. But this time you actually weren’t on the losing end for once.

“Nah, you still have to flip the coin.” Another dare Dean had impossed on you earlier. Flipping a coin for every decision for a week. That made it indeed harder to just straight out say no to any dare he came up with. Sly bastard.

“Whatever.” You roll your eyes and raise your eyebrows, waiting for him, “Well, go on.”

“I dare you to…” Thinking for a moment, a huge smirk finally crossed his face, “…ask dad out on a date.”

“J-john? Are you crazy?! No way.”

“Okay that was your answer, now ask the coin.”

“Fine, fine.”

You take the damn thing into your hands, turning it between your fingers a few times before you throw it up into the air, catching it onto the back of your hand. Heads, really?

“Come on Dean I can’t do that, please.”

John Winchester had always been more than interesting to you. With his rugged looks, broad shoulders, dazzling smile and deep voice that did things to you. Going on a date with him wouldn’t be something you’d say no to, actually asking him was a very different thing however. You had to hunt with him and Dean after all and that lingering sting of rejection every time you looked at him wouldn’t be good.

“The coin has spoken.”


“Okay.”

“What?”

“I said okay. Hop in.” John holds his car door open for you while you continue to stare at him with a disbelieving look, “You did say you mean it just now, didn’t you?”

“Y-yeah of course.” You try to regain your composure quickly and sit down on the passenger seat with a rapidly increasing heartbeat. No way in hell! Did he really just agree to go on a date with you?

Matt Martin (Toronto Maple Leafs)

AN: Okay so all I really wanted out of that TOR vs WAS series was a fight between Matt Martin and Tom Wilson and because I didn’t get one I’m going to make one! Plus people don’t write about Matt enough too.

Game 6 became pretty stressful before the puck even dropped. You could feel the tension on the ice from where you were sitting with the rest of the WAGS. It was clear from the time warm ups started that something was bothering Matt, but no matter how hard you kept your focus on him he would not turn and look at you.

Matt played 4th line and was only ever sent out to play alongside the other lines if Babcock sent him out to rough up someone that touched one of the top players. As much as you loved Matt and loved to watch him play in the NHL you hated his job as an enforcer. You never really understood why there was such a need for players like that, but you stuck with Matt and cleaned his fight wounds every time.

Half way into the second period after an icing call you could see that Tom Wilson and Matt where exchanging a few word before Tom gave Matt a shove and the refs pulled them apart. You tried to read Matts lips as words of hatred flew out of his mouth towards Wilson.  

During the rest of the second period it seemed that Wilson did everything to go out of his was and talk to Matt. Just as the horn sounded to end the second Steph LaChance, Mitch Marner girlfriend, turned and spoke to you. (Y/N), is everything okay? You look a little pale, do you need anything to eat or drink? I don’t mind going to get it for you.“ Ever since the bye-week when the four of you plus Connor Carrick and his girlfriend Lexi went on Vacation together you and Steph had become extremely close due to both of your boyfriends become friends and hangout regularly.

You smiled at the offer and shook your head. "I’m fine Steph but thanks for the offer anyways.”
“Then do you want to tell me what’s really bothering you?” Steph had a tendency to be just as persistent as Mitch, “Something’s wrong with Matt.”
“Are you sure? I can go down to the locker rooms with you if you want to make sure everything is okay.”
“No, I don’t want to make it worse and completely through off his game for the rest of the night.”
“Okay then I will sit with you and together we can see if we can solve what’s going on in the head of that boyfriend of yours.” You laughed and smiled as some of the worry disappeared. You and Steph sat and talked until the intermission ended and the boys returned back to the ice.

Not long into the third when Tom Wilson made his way over to Matt again, this time it didn’t even look like that many word where exchanged before Matt went after Tom and said something to him before they were both dropping the gloves.

“Oh my gosh” Steph said from beside you. Oh my gosh wasn’t anywhere near what you were thinking.  Many punches were exchanged and both took quite a few to the face. You could see where many had started to from on Matts face. His face was covered in blood. It didn’t take many more punches to Wilsons face before he lost his balance and fell to the ice.  Matt still continued to punch  him and two refs had to pull him off of Wilson.

Not one rookie had been touched or top line player to make Matt go after Wilson. So help him, if it is one of those stereotypical “he was bad mouthing you and I couldn’t let him keep talking about you like that” he is going to wish Wilson had killed him because you were about to.

A hand touched your arm, you turned and saw Mollie saying something to you. “Pardon?” “Are you okay? (Y/n) you look worse then you did before. Do you need some water?” You shook your head. “No I’m okay. I think I’m just going to go and see Matt.” You stood up and grabbed your things no longer caring about he score of the game, just wanting to go and see Matt.

As you walked down the tunnel, not one security guard stopped you, probably scared that you would hurt them for being in your way. You could see the trainer leaving the medical room as you got closer towards the doors. You pushed open the door to see Matt half undressed  holding an ice pack to his eye and a towel on his chin. “Matthew Martin you better have a pretty good explanation for what the hell that was!” Even Matt a 6'3, 220 pound hockey player/fighter flinched and the tone of your voice. “Babe, I promise that I can explain.”
“Oh no you don’t get to "babe” me until after this explanation. In all the years I have seen you play I have NEVER EVER seen you so mad as you where well you beat the shit out of him. Not one player was touched that bad from him that was worth fighting. And so help you Matt if this is one of those stereotypical “he was bad mouthing you”  you’re going to regret me coming down here. So start talking.“ You didn’t mean for your word to come out so harsh but Matt flinched and his shoulders dropped.

When he didn’t start talking so you were assuming that the reason for the fight was option two.  "He wouldn’t stop (y/n/n), and it was pissing me off the whole game. And I couldn’t let him talk about you like that and I just, I don’t know what came over me and I’m sorry okay. I know you don’t like me fighting to begin with-” You shook your head. “The games almost over I’ll be in the car.” With that you turned and walked out the door toward the garage. You heard the final buzzer after you left the room. Seeing the final score, the leafs lost. You knew Matt would be a mix of emotions now. You slowly regretted yelling at him as you walked out to the car.

An hour later you heard the trunk open and then Matt opened the door and climbed into the driver seat. You sunk into your seat wishing you could disappear into it. The ride back to your apartment normally took fifteen minutes but tonight, It felt like it was the longest car ride ever. When you pulled into the parking lot you quickly got out of the car and made a beeline for the door wanting to go to bed. Matt caught up to you and opened the door into the building. As much as you and Matt could get angry with each other he never stopped being a gentleman. The ride up to your floor took forever and when the doors opened you exited quicker then you had originally planned to. You quickly unlocked the door and went into the kitchen. You heard Matt go down you your shared room to change. You went and sat on the couch in the living room and grabbed the book you where reading.

Half an hour later you heard Matt enter the living room, it took him a few minutes to come in and sit beside you, but his eyes never left you from the time he entered to the time he crouched down in front of you and took the book out of your hands, setting it down on the table carefully so he wouldn’t lose the page you were on. You spoke first. “Five years Matt we have been together. I moved with you after you got traded to Toronto no questions asked and no strings attached. I go to every game that I have been able to attend. I’m always here when you get home from the road, I always take care of you after a fight, I would do anything for you and stay with you through thick and thin. So i just don’t get it Matt. What could he have possibly said to you about me that got you so angry and upset.”
“It so stupid. I know what he was trying to do. All he wanted was to get me off the ice because that meant thee would be no one to defend and protect the rookies. I’m so sorry. I know that you would never do any of those things he said and non of those things he said are even close to true. I gave in and game him exactly what he wanted. And then i helped blow the games. I shouldn’t have fought. And i really didn’t mean to make you upset. I love you and hearing him say that you didn’t really got to me.”

“First, you didn’t blow the game, win as a team and lose as a team. You still gave it your all the whole time you were on the ice. So it’s not your fault that Tom Wilson is an ass and we already knew that. Secondly, I accept your apology. Third, I love you too and I’m not going anywhere. If i was i would have stayed in New York but I didn’t. And lastly, I’m sorry too. I lost my cool in the med room and I should have listened to you and let you explain.”  Matt smiled and leaned in to kiss you. Your hands found their way into his hair while he put his hand on your waist. You broke the kiss and put your forehead on his. You smiled. “Come on, lets go get your pretty faced cleaned up. I don’t know who did it but they did a worse job than last time.” Matt laughed as you stood up and grabbed his hand and  pulled him into the bathroom.

“Maybe you should become a trainer so you can fix me after fights.”

“Uh no. I think that I will stick to being your personal nurse at home.” You laughed as you handed him an ice pack fro his eye.

“(Y/n)?”

“Yes Matt?”

“Did i tell you how much i love you?”

“Yes Matt?”

“Can I tell you again?”

“Yes”

“I love you (y/n).”

“I love you too Matt.”
