weekend long reads

My definition of a perfect weekend:

1. Waking up to the sound of the rain at 7 am and feeling well-rested for the first time in what feels like forever


2. Lying in bed for the next hour of two, continuing the book you fell asleep reading


3. Making breakfast while still in pajamas, watching your favorite show as you sip on hot cocoa


4. Taking a hot bath and finally getting the chance to wear your favorite sweater after


5. Hunching over your worktable till afternoon, determined to complete new pieces of art


6. Strumming a few chords on guitar to go with the faltering booms of thunder echoing through your window panes


7. Going to bed without a worry in the world, not having to think of what may come up the next morning

#Mohn Gets Real 

#Lusamine is always going to be overbearing and kind of controlling/strict in every verse….but in this verse her disputes with the kids

#are generally very petty and Normal™ 

#things like ‘no Gladion you can’t go to that concert without supervision it’s just not safe’

#'Lillie i don’t know about this trainer girl you keep hanging out with….who even are they……’

#'Gladion are you…..SURE you want to wear that….? we’re expecting company today for heaven’s sake’

#'Lillie you can’t just LEAVE HOME and be a TRAINER now what are you thinking!!! you’re not ready!!!’

#buuuuut she’s overdramatic so lmao…..they weren’t exactly petty to her

#when she says 'ugliness’ she is definitely exaggerating lmao

#Gladion: god mom let me live my life

#Lusamine: don’t take that tone with me young man

#Gladion: (storms out)

#Lusamine: (immediately bursts into tears and throws herself into Mohn’s arms) NINE MONTHS……FOR THIS?!?!

Klance Fic Rec 3

Please check the archive warnings and fic summaries before reading to make sure you’re gonna be okay with the fic contents!  Spoilers for Season 1 abound.  Plenty of other fics that don’t fit my personal reading preference are on AO3, so you should check them out if you have time! (I tend to avoid character death fics or really short ones.) 

Past fic recs found here.


Complete

  • tropical drink melting in your hand; we’ll be falling in love by jojotxt – beach resort au where keith gets a job at the rental shack and lance is a lifeguard / surfing instructor, and the whole thing is really cute
  • surfing lessons by shingekinogtfo – lance is bad at surfing and tries to show off for the cute lifeguard with a mullet, but he doesn’t seem to have the memo that almost-drowning isn’t a very good flirting tactic
  • baby love me cause i’m playing on the radio by dizzyondreams – cute college/uni au where keith is in charge of a radio show and lance keeps calling in to criticize his music taste and request songs
  • Faking Flight by prettyshiroic (AnalystProductions) – keith gets really angry after lance flies off in ep.6, and the other paladins help him sort out his feelings because he’s not very good at that
  • Doctor’s Orders by genericfanatic – post season 1 where lance and keith end up stranded on the same planet, and they slowly learn to work together and tolerate each other before they’re rescued
  • Found in Translation by princevince – some cute fluff where lance takes keith on a stargazing date in the castle of lions
  • Royal(ly fucked) by Ididntsignupforthisshit (Oliver_Ravenwood) – i love this bc lance is dancing and signing to music that hunk, pidge, and allura are playing, and shiro brings his deaf cousin keith to watch (i’m just excited bc i rarely see fics talking about sign language, go read it)
  • Humidity by Metis_Ink – i am always a sucker for fics featuring lance’s family bc i just want him to be happy, so this was a pleasant fic to read where lance takes keith home to visit them
  • Call me now, it’s urgent. by morvish – in which lance has absolutely terrible timing with comm calls to keith and is bad at prioritizing
  • It’s still gay even if it’s in space and you cry a lot (it might actually make it gayer) by Universebound – keith has a crush on lance and is afraid of how people will react, but he slowly comes out to the team when he feels safe, and everything is okay
  • Babysit Your Heart Out by opalfire – lance and keith have to babysit some aliens, and it turns out lance is pretty good with kids
  • in spite of you by regicide – high school au where keith and lance are at the aquarium for a field trip
  • head over feet by safra – college/uni au where keith and lance start off casually banging each other but then they become friends and eventually date
  • Kiss It Better by agalaxywithinyou – cute fic where keith gets seriously injured during a mission and lance frets about it
  • I’ve already rec’d What a Healing Pod Can’t Repair (by Remember_Me) before bc mmm quality angst, but it recently finished so check it out if the fic summary and tags interest you!

WIPs

  • Pulsar by southspinner – [warnings: descriptions of anxiety] – college/uni au where keith and lance meet at a frat party and slowly get to know each other; the worldbuilding is nice and the writing (especially characterization) pulled me in pretty quick! 
  • Backhand by Raylou – college/uni au where lance invites keith to join a martial arts club formed of the voltron crew, except lance is kinda an asshole and keith isn’t having any of it
  • Halcyon Days by bolbessa – prince au with a fairytale sort of vibe, in which lance is a longlost prince of a kingdom and keith is a knight sent to bring him back to the current king
  • Fill in the Space by Star_right – post season 1 where lance and keith end up stranded on an alien planet together; it’ll be interesting to see what happens next!
  • The Lion’s Den by Gigapoodle – coffeeshop aus where shiro owns the fic’s eponymous coffee shop in which a bunch of teenagers end up hanging out and becoming friends; it’s cute so far, check it out!
Anxiety

The thing about anxiety and depression is that you can’t ‘just relax’ or ‘stop stressing’. It paints everything in shades of gloom until the pleasures of life become minuscule. Anything that used to excite or interest you comes to mean little. You may sit down to a movie but as the images flicker before your eyes, you fail to register any of it. If you were a reader like me then lines may become inscrutable blurs, words just keep appearing, one after another but you can barely grasp what’s going on. Meeting up with friends or even conversing with your own family becomes a chore as you manically think of things to say that make you sound at least partially enthused. It’s so unnatural to be normal and you feel fake mimicking conventions. You wish you could sit their silently without bearing an uncomfortable smile and not worry about keeping up appearances.

It’s a soul crushing experience. You feel stale inside carrying the weight of hopelessness. Do you still think someone would choose to feel like this?

anonymous asked:

Did you notice Chanyeol's big daddy yaoi hands when they hugged. (☆ω☆)

Hi there darling~ <3 WHY OF COURSE I NOTICED THEM.

THOSE HANDS CAN SURROUND BH’s WAIST WITH EASE. IT LOOKS SO DAMN BIG WHEN WRAPPED AROUND BH AND THE THING THAT WAS ON MY MIND WAS “Cy can manhandle Bh so easily” MYGOSH UGHH HE IS SO DADDY HNNNGGSS. And can we pls take time to appreciate the almighty Oh Sehun just being beautiful and supportive at the side. All hail our ship’s president.


And am I the only one who thought Bh looked 10000000x sexier DURING the hug compared to before?

  • before le hug:
  • During le hug: 

AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO SEES THE SHIFT IN SEXINESS? Oh it’s just me? Oh okay .___.
