we're moving up


I am very excited to share some personal news. I finished my master’s degree in Communication Disorders! (and am now in the process of trying to find a clinical fellowship position.) And Lauren graduated from law school this last weekend and I am very proud of her! @originalmeaningofalternative

Some shidan and garrack ;w; discussing, drinking, just more of them and maybe have shidan ACTUALLY kiss the lady. Uhh idk if you’ve incorporated them modern au but if not canon verse is good! :)


Garrack’s TA startles, and she stifles a laugh. He’s a high-strung kid, more limbs than sense at times, but a hard-worker nonetheless. He doesn’t have the natural aptitude of Ryuu, or the studious heart of Shirayuki, or even Obi’s gift of lateral thinking, but he’s the sort of kid that doesn’t give up. He’ll throw himself against a wall before he’ll walk away from it – or, she can’t help thinking a bit uncharitably, go around it.

Listen, they’ll be hand-pouring gels for month to make up the cost of the boxes he went through only to realize he was using the wrong fucking ones. For fuck’s sake, they have a chart.

Moving is so unbelievably stressful. Like you think you’ve got everything ready, and you’ve started packing way ahead of time, and you’ve already mapped out the floor plan for all your furniture.

But then you finally get to see the actual apartment you’ll be living in and not the one next door to it. And you realize after doing lots of measuring and math that the apartment you’re supposed to get is 10% smaller than it’s supposed to be. So now you’re waiting to hear back on whether or not the management company will knock 10% off your rent to cover the lack of space. ALL THE WHILE your meticulous floor plan is now entirely useless, and you might not be able to actually fit all your stuff in the apartment, and if you can, it’ll be tight and uncomfortable. And everything is a mess, and I want to cry.

I’m anxious at the thought that I may never get completely over you.

You smiled at me last night as I sung the words of my favorite song outloud, and I swear my heart melted right there.

Fuck, we ended the night side by side on that damn mattress, our backs were pressed against each other and for once I thought we could actually be friends.

But then we turned around with a little too much coordination, and our hands found each other as well as our nose, bodies and eventually our lips.

I felt it at the tip of my toes, is that even normal?

Why can’t I find the guts to break this vicious circle?

It’s familiarity sickens me.
But i’m too infatuated to leave.

You’ve got me at the palm of your hands and you don’t deserve it.

Fuck, you really don’t.

But your flesh feels warm against mine and I love the way you burry your face in the nape of my neck as I play in your hair.

And though I know, oh I know, that all of this is a simple illusion. It doesnt stop me from embracing the situation with outstanding compassion.

You see, though I tried my hardest to ignore it, the sun eventually rose as you got up quickly, leaving me on the cold blown up bed with nothing more than the mere souvenir of our heartbeats synchronizing together as one as well as the bitter aftertaste of your pale lips pressed against mine.

You left outside and sat by the worn out fire, ignoring my gaze, like the previous night meant absolutely nothing.

And i didn’t force it, no, because as sad as it is to admit, i’m actually used to it.

—  Ten words story: I fell in love with a boy who completely lost his mind. I’m trying to move on from him but everytime I feel like I did, he comes back to haunt me.

i hope i will still have the time next year to maintain all my friendships and hang out with people, i really need to step up my math game

I just kind of assumed that Marcus Kane would have game, but after the cheek kiss and his “what was that?” reaction, it is CANONICALLY obvious that he is absolutely clueless and it delights me beyond belief.

Error, I'm not pinning his "shit" attitude you the two of you. I'm just trying to say how can he pretend to be worried and stop saying certain things if he doesn't know how bad things are? I understand that Fresh can't feel anything but he can at least try to pretend to be normal like you and Ink. Fresh is a smart kid who probably looked upped how normal people will act in this situations. If he didn't he would be bullied as all hell by normal people like you. Just think about that for a bit.
