what else am i supposed to tag this as

Central Arizona “Gothic”
  • It’s the middle of the valley region. You are a maintenance worker who has been assigned to your daily task. You carry your leaf blower through the streets. You blow leaves out of the gutter and away from the sidewalk. There are no trees around. You do not know where these leaves come from. You simply know that you are meant to blow them away. Away from here. 
  • There is one locally-owned ice cream establishment within walking distance. You are sure there must be more such oases elsewhere, but you have never seen them. No one has ever returned from them. Maybe there are better ice cream shops out there and no one wanted to return. Maybe there is nothing. The risk is too high for the potential reward. 
  • You are not supposed to touch the cacti. The cacti are not supposed to touch you. And yet, there are still rebel forces at work. 
  • The person next to you is not a cowboy. You are not a cowboy. You have not met a single cowboy since you arrived on the stagecoach. In fact, you have not seen a single cow, either. 
  • You check your shoes every morning for lizards. There is one in every pair with the exception of your dress shoes. There is one scorpion in the left shoe. It refuses to leave. You have not had the motivation to buy a new pair of dress shoes yet. 
  • You have fifteen pairs of sunglasses. You wear none of them. Somehow one pair disappears every month. You do not look for them anymore. You dread the day when they all decide to leave you at once. You do not want to be alone. 
  • It rains at least once every two weeks. The rain drops are few but heavy. The power goes out as the first hits the ground. The library floods at the second. Fifty mini-vans are caught in flood waters at the third. You dread what the fourth brings. Your neighbors are building an arc. You think they intend to leave you behind. 
  • “They” say that earthquakes happen all the time. You feel no such seismic activity and you most certainly do not feel the aftershocks. You do not know who “they” are, either, but everyone else seems to trust “them.” 
  • Everyone wants to go to Disneyland. Everyone loves Disneyland. Everyone wakes in the morning and turns to the West to gaze longingly towards the land of their savior. 
  • Pipes continue to leak in the University dorms. Only the maintenance workers know where it all comes from. They are friendly people. Some question if they are even human at all. These thoughts are never vocalized. No one questions the power or the wisdom of the maintenance workers. 
Contrast - Archie Andrews

Ayyyyo whaddup it me. This is a shoddy thing I wrote that I don’t really like but whatever. Thought id share cause sharing is caring. Also first time posting my writing on here so pls be nice. Thanks enjoy lol.


I stared at him unnoticed, for the moment at least. I watched as he scanned the room without lifting his head before retrieving his pencil from between his teeth and continuing to jot down line after line.

I couldn’t help but become encapsulated with the way that his stained purple flesh revealed its depth in colour with each tilt of his head. It was much easier to stare at people during detention, I’d found. Although the bruise surrounding his right eye might be seen as unsightly to others, it captured my interest.

Did it hurt? I’d imagined so, though I’d never gotten a good idea as I’d never had a black eye before.  How had it happened? I’d wondered briefly if it was the result of the brawl in the debate meeting a few days previous. I’d dispelled that theory though; he didn’t seem the type to fight another. Although I didn’t know him and, how else could it have happened?

I’d found his form the definition of contrast; his hair ablaze, the purple stain beneath his eye, the bright yellow and blue of his letterman jacket and, what I’d found most enticing, was the contrast of his light to my dark. I’d had no idea how I’d missed this before. He was perfect and I needed him in my portfolio.

Detention had hardly begun before Mr. Fryer had announced our time was up. I suppose he’d wanted to suffer his loneliness in solitude. He didn’t hesitate to stow his belongings in his bag before fleeing at top speed. I was almost unable to catch up, almost.

“Archie!” I called to him down the hall while attempting to reach him. His footsteps ceased as he pivoted to witness my arrival.

“Hey,” He’d obviously not been expecting a conversation as I could tell he’d wanted nothing more than to continue running far away.

“Um, I just wanted to ask if you could help me out with something.”

“Depends on what that something is.” He couldn’t seem to maintain eye contact with me for more than a few moments.

“Can I draw you?” That drew his brown eyes to mine.

“What?” I’d had no idea why he was so surprised, it wasn’t unusual for me to be drawing students. He’d seen me on campus. Heck, I’d drawn Betty a number of times.

“Can I draw you?” I’d asked again, although the question he’d meant to ask was ‘why?’

“Uh, I guess. I-I mean yeah. Yes.” When he’d smiled and his eyes had shined, I wondered again why I hadn’t asked before.

“Awesome!” As I gathered my thoughts my eyes shifted between his, “When are you free?”

“Um – I don’t have practice tomorrow, so how about then?” He was wringing his hands.

“Okay, how about we go to Sweetwater? I’ve got a car; I can take you home after.”

“Uh yeah, cool. Look, I’ve really got to go but I’ll see you tomorrow, okay?” He kept looking toward the doors.

“Alright, see you later.” I muttered to his back as he jogged to the end of the hall and through the doors.


“Sit!” The tartan of the cheap blanket was dark and distracting, spread out over the bright green of the grass on the bank.

“Okay.” He seemed intimidated, though I had no idea why. “How do you want me?”

“However you like.” I hadn’t time for specifics, now how was this gonna work? I hummed quietly while trying to match his shade of ‘Weasley Orange’ to my limited array of colours. I settled on ‘Blood Orange.’

As I raised my gaze to him, his shifted to the river. The water was flowing smoothly, softly gliding over the stones on its shallow floor. It was marvellous.

“Would you explain your process to me? I’m curious.” His voice was quiet, a beautiful contrast to the, frankly, loud sunset painted on his left cheekbone.

“Uh – Sure. But keep facing the river for me, okay.” I was only half-way through the rough outline of his profile.

“So, I start with a rough outline.” Starting at the chin as a central point I began to stage the rest of his face on the page. The ridge of his eyebrows and the slope of his nose, all dotted out carefully, if slightly disproportionate.

“Then I add the other smaller stuff, like ear and eye shape and hair placement.” There was a silence as I added a few smaller details from memory. I was so engrossed in the work that I hardly had time to notice Archie’s stare grazing my face.

I shaded the soft contour of his jaw and cheekbone before attempting to study the shape and hue of his black eye. I smiled shyly after catching Archie’s warm gaze, he smiled back.

“Face the river, I’m nearly done.” I sketched a rough shape in a shade named ‘Deep Purple’ before adding depth in lighter colours, scattering patches of yellow-green around his cheek.

The result could be considered ‘Abstract’ or even ‘Unfinished’ but it was perfect.

“Here.” I thrust my sketch book into Archie’s hand and he viewed it silently for a few seconds before a smile adorned his face.

“This is amazing! I love it.” His tone was bright as our eyes locked on each other.

Archie’s shyness had gone now as he placed a warm hand on my cheek as I shivered in the autumn wind. The sketch book now rested forgotten on my knee as I leaned closer into his warmth. It wasn’t until our lips brushed that I realised my reason for being so drawn to Archie’s beauty. Our contrast was in fact not a contrast at all it was a mixture.

We mixed both physically and emotionally, we were one in the same. Archie’s bruise did fade but our connection was wired, internal not just external. We melded like the pigment of his bruise melded back into his creamy complexion.

I watched Joe’s live stream so you don’t have to (play by play reactions)

- announcement is a 24 hour livestream on ThatcherJoeVlogs on Friday starting at 6:00pm UK time (1:00pm EST) ft guests and Joe signing a lot of Username:Uprising

- I wish I had friends I could have a sleepover with and watch the livestream dude that would be so fun

- throwback to #1Dday I couldn’t even last seven hours with One Direction how the hell am I gonna do 24 hours with YouTubers

- just kidding I’m about to be dedicated as fuck

- Jack and Joe from 12:00-3:00 am

- #unpopularopinion I like Joe’s mustache

- my poor baby and his infected gums he was so ill he almost passed out whenever he ate cuz the pain as so bad fuck I want to hug him

- Joe speaking foreign languages is my aesthetic (and it reminds me that I really need to brush up on my spanish)

- “I’m trying to set up other things for the future cuz, you know, you never know how long this whole YouTube thing is gonna last before I’m back on the ol’ roof”

- “it’s getting to the point where I really do want a girlfriend”

- well I’ve always been at the point where I want to be your girlfriend so I don’t understand why this is such a predicament for you when I’m always available so quit complaining and hit me up

- no but really I want him to be happy and I think he would be so happy in a relationship so he’s just gotta get someone awesome

- (like I wasn’t mad when Caspar got with Maddie cuz she’s great so Joe needs someone great)

- main channel might become a lower priority in the future

- “And I’ll see you in the future with a Sugg Sunday Special. Who knows when it’ll be. I don’t wanna say that there’s gonna be an end to Sugg Sunday but… I don’t know. I’m not as fussed about that channel as much, which is a shame cuz that’s my main channel. I don’t know it’s been so nice to have a week […] where I haven’t thought about that kind of stuff”

- obviously the idea of irregular Sugg Sunday Specials is sad but the idea of Joe putting out things because he feels obligated to and not because he enjoys them is even more sad

- “Wow that was deep whoa I went off! That’s what happens when Harry Styles starts playing music I start talking about proper stuff that I don’t normally speak about”

- yes, Harry Styles’ album was playing in the background throughout the entire livestream

- Kiwi is his favorite song (I shit you not that’s my favorite too it’s such a bop)

- serious Joe makes my heart feel warm

- he wants to raise a family in the countryside omg raising kids in the countryside he’s a country boy at heart

- “No iPads, no YouTube, no YouTube until you’re 12″

- “The dream is be able to have a lake and my dad can live in a little cave in the garden and look after the lake”

- honestly I love Joe wow

- HE DOESN’T LIKE THE WORD BUTTERCREAM GANG OR BUTTERCREAM SQUAD

- “We started it as like a little internal thing that we called ourselves and it spread and people call us the buttercream squad and I’m just like ugh it makes me like cringe out a bit whenever I hear it even though it’s what we call ourselves I guess. I don’t really call it that anymore”

- he starts the story of how they started to call themselves that at 28:38 of the video I’m not even going to try and summarize it ya’ll should just watch that bit

- okay but him, Conor, Caspar, and Mikey were the original four and that is so fucking random to me

- for some reason I just got really bummed out that he doesn’t like that name like okay Joe I literally have a blog dedicated to it so what the fuck am I supposed to do now

- he said none of them expected anyone else to start calling it that

- literally you’re all Internet sensations you should’ve known it was gonna get blown up when you gave yourself a name so honestly you brought this upon yourself lmao

- wOW MY HEART ACTUALLY IS BUMMED THAT HE DOESN’T LIKE IT

- also Byron is a member of their squad and literally none of us even talk about him/know him

- (side not Byron is hot as hell)

- I’m dead at how we all cling to whatever they say like the SECOND they tagged #buttercream on a photo we all went off

- I’m have an existential crisis wow

- “I just miss Jaspoli. That was my favorite, back in those days”

- I LEGIT THOUGHT I WAS GONNA CRY JUST NOW WOW MY HEART I MISS THOSE DAYS TOO JOE FUCK BRING IT BACK

- GO ON A JASPOLI TRIP PLS

- he wants a pet pig ??

- he’s gonna hang out with Brit soon !

- I ship him and Brit I have since the Jaspoli Coachella days (#unpopularopinion ??)

- literally the second I typed that he made a comment about it oh sorry sorry didn’t know that was a touchy subject

- reminder once again that I am single and available

- okay but they FaceTime every week for hours and that’s goals ???

- my jaw dropped at this bit he said he wants to stop going on nights out and start going to dinner parties and such, that he’s done with the night scene

- I thought he was joking but he was dead ass serious oh my god he’s growing up that felt weird to hear him say that

- “when the time’s right and it’s the right person” he’s a romantic person

- 52:58 through 53:05 is a joy

- “I’m a giver, not a receiver, take that as you will”

- he keeps getting shaky and he thinks it’s because he hasn’t eaten all day and it really worries me

- he’d like to live with both Oli and Josh (separately) and says that they’re both very mature

- his favorite YouTubers are the Sidemen and Caspar

- someone told him to collab with Kian and JC and he completely ignored it lmao

- HE SEES OLI AS A LITTLE BROTHER

- “I feel like I’ve watched him grow from like a little baby seed to like an oak tree. To see him do so well for himself now and he’s in a position where he’s just loving it and I’m so proud of him. I feel like a proud older brother and he’s said he sees me as like an older brother. We’ve had a lot of heart to hearts and stuff and he’s so good for advice. Even though he’s like my younger brother I go to him for advice a lot of the time cuz he’s been doing YouTube longer than I have and he’s just very knowledgeable about everything and he’s very sincere he cares about people a lot he puts others before him a lot of the time and he’s a genuine friend for life”

- THAT HAD ME SO FUCKING EMO

- it takes him a long time to open up to people, he’s usually quite shy when he meets people for the first time unless there’s that instant “chemical spark”

- he talked about being nice to people and compared life to climbing up a tree and how you should be nice to everyone you pass on your way up because if you’re not and then you start to drop, the people you pass won’t be there to grab your hand and stop you from falling

- in girls he looks for someone who doesn’t take themselves too seriously, not too obsessed about themselves

- obviously first attraction is important but ultimately it’s about the personality (said every guy ever tbh) and then mentioned how if looks are that important to you it means you probably care more about how other people perceive you and your girlfriend than how you feel about your girlfriend herself

- “I want to find someone who can only add something to my life. Someone who improves my life and makes me a happier person. At the moment I’m a really happy person so anyone who has that affect to make it better is the one for me”

- reminder once again that I am single

- like I’m not drop dead gorgeous but I’ve got some stuff to offer I have nice eyes and good hair and my personality is great aside from the occasional down periods due to mental illness but you know we all have our flaws

- he talked seriously quite a bit in the stream and I’m really digging it I like serious Joe

- someone asked for advice on having a crush on your ex and he talked about moving on because it’s probably not good for you but then he said “unless you think they were the one”

- one of the best relationships he’s ever been in has been with someone older than him

- “Maybe I need to go for a cougar. Any 40 year old ladies?”

- *awkward laugh* “I’ve just admitted to a live stream that I’m after a mum. No I’m only joking. Imagine that I could end up being your dad”

- Poop Scoop with Brit on Friday

- he’s in no rush to have children

- “I’m fortunate enough to act like an immature child and get away with it a lot of the time”

- he doesn’t really want to settle down/get married anytime soon because he meets new people everyday and the idea of getting really settled down scares him because he never knows who he’s going to meet the next day

- “that’s why I’ve never- well not that you know of- had any public relationships”

- what the hell does that mean Joseph

- “I’m very good at keeping it all under wraps”

- WHAT THE HELL DOES THAT MEAN JOSEPH

- he’s literally so hungry he’s shaking Josh hurry up he needs food

- “I hope Caspar’s there cuz I haven’t seen him in bloody ages and I miss the ol’ boy. I miss the bloody weirdo”

- he loves livestreams because it’s the closest we can get to all sitting in a room together and “having a good ol’ standard chit chat”

- reminder of the 24 hour live stream on ThatcherJoeVlogs starting at 6:00pm UK time (1:00pm EST)

- “New vlog soon. New gaming video soon. I’m back. Don’t worry I’m not going anywhere. I’m still loving life. And more importantly, you’re all bloody legends.”

that was a lot there you go (or you could just watch the live stream idk)

also I wish I knew people who lived near me 😭 I would so fucking love to have a sleepover and make good friends and watch Joe

A/N: Just a short story, hope you enjoy!

 The team sat around the table passing a news paper back and forth “No way, let me see that” JJ said snatching the paper away from you. “That’s what it says J” you said taking a sip of your coffee. 

 "I refuse to believe this, but it has to be true" Spencer walked in concerned with what was going on. “Is everything okay? Do we have another case?” he said sitting in front of you guys. 

 "No everything is not okay according to this,“ JJ said holding up the news paper, “Will and I are complete opposites and not computable” she said still shocked. Spencer frowned “This isn’t real” he said bluntly.

 "Oh it’s real alright” JJ said. “JJ, you and Will are perfect for each other this is obviously bogus” You let out a small laugh, “JJ this must be a lie because according to this me and Spencer’s signs are compatible.”

 Spencer’s cheeks flared, he’s mouth opened unsure of what to say next “Oh, this is definitely wrong then, no way you two could ever be together right Spencer?” JJ said putting him on the spot. 

 You didn’t take your eyes off of him as he continued to become flustered. “Never” Spencer replied obviously flustered. 

Once Spencer left the room JJ turned to you, “Why can’t you just ask him out already?” You rolled your eyes at her before replying, “Come on J that’s not gonna happen, we have nothing in common.” 

Which was true besides working at the BAU, and sharing the close circle of co workers you both called friends you had nothing else in common, nothing.At first you didn’t think you’d ever be close to Spencer he seemed uninterested in every conversation you ever tried to start with him. Spencer was shy, kept to him self, and was smarted then you would ever be able to keep up with. 

You we’re an outgoing social butterfly, able to pull any one in and make them laugh. “Look our personalities are different, our interests are different, and–” before you could continue JJ cut you off, “Your feelings are the same. We all see how you look at each other.” 

Oh yes, the way he looked at you, it sure felt magical. Spencer had this talent, no gift of making you feel like you we’re the only person in the room when he looked at you. “Also if he wasn’t into you he wouldn’t be keeping up with shows like, Jane The Virgin, which you should stop binge watching.” 

“Wow low blow JJ that’s a great show,” You got up from your seat and turned your on the door, “Besides how am I ever suppose to ask him out? ‘Hey Spence I know we work together and we’re friends but I like you, so go out with me’” You saw JJ’s shocked expression as you finished that sentence. 

“See exactly, I sounds crazy I mean how else am I suppose to tell Spencer I like him.” But then you realized JJ wasn’t looking at you, no she was looking behind you. 

Oh. No. What. Did. You. Just. Do. 

“He’s right behind me isn’t he?” You said as your face turned strawberry pink. JJ shook her head as she got up from her seat, you waited for her to leave to finally turn around and face him. 

“Seriously?” Spencer said clearly shocked. “Well, yeah, seriously” you said completely embarrassed. “I can pick you up at 7, tonight” 

“Tonight?” 

“Tonight.” 

Spencer said before walking away, tonight was the night.

anonymous asked:

I was roaming the anti destiel tag *because sometimes a girl gets bored and needs to laugh at hellers* and I came across an ask that someone sent someone else and said antihellers were just upset that Dean gave Cas a mixtape and not Sam and I just??????? Is that proof of Destiel or something? Am I supposed to see it as a token of Dean's undying affection or that they're soulmates even though Cas wouldn't know what a soulmate was even if he/she literally ran into his constipated face?

Yes the oh so romantic mixtape.

Never mind that Dean sold his soul for Sam.
Or that he died so that he could talk to Death and ask him to help Soulless Sam.
Or that he died so that he could beg Billie to bring Sam back to life. 
Or the many times that Dean was ready to die at Sam’s side, rather than live without him. 

Nope, a mixtape is what true love is all about. 

Oh then there is this little piece of canon that THEY always seem to forget:

1/100 Days of Productivity

It’s July 1st so time to start the challenge! I don’t usually study on the weekends during summer, but I have been meaning to work on my flute playing! I’ve been playing for 10 years now so I absolutely adore it!

The list on my ipad is just a way for me to keep a track of how many pieces I’m working on. I haven’t had a chance to add in my other genres of music yet

Man I do a lot of thinking about Karamatsu aha… Especially concerning how he got from Osomatsu-Kun to Osomatsu-San. We’re given basically 0 info on how their teen years were so I’m just gonna… Make some up of my own under the cut! 

(Oh also as for Ichi’s weird school photo, I feel like he was totally that kid that was always photographed mid-sneeze, and that no one ever took the time to retake any of them.)

Hey?

I’ll probably make a proper intro post in a week or so…but for now?

My name is Rewati (You can call me Ray/Ray Ray!) and I’m 19 going into my third year of undergrad studying biomedical sciences!

I’m prepping for my MCATs right now cause summer is over, and honestly I’ve found I waste a lot more time looking at studyblrs then actually studying so I figured I’d make one!

I’m an organization obsessed dork and as of right now I write over 80% of my notes on my ipad pro so I’m pretty helpful when it comes to that! 

I’d love to chat with others also studying and hopefully help anyone who needs help with their studies? 

It’s nice to meet you all!!

So. @mellamew told me that she told y’all ( @tyranttortoise and @asksansallthethings [I think?? If I tagged the wrong person then uh… wow this is awkward] ) about this questionable condom find I made the other week. I can’t read Japanese, so I have no idea if these are, in fact, flavored condoms but we liked to believe they are. Honey specifically because what else am I supposed to deduce from the packaging? I can tell you that the brown bear is laughing all “uhoho” tho.

“Rilikuma needs honey” huh? I’m sure we all know someone else that needs a little… “honey”. ;3c

You know I always worry about gushing about my sims but you know what if I can’t do it on my own blog where the hell else am I supposed to do it?? THERE IS NO OTHER REASON FOR THIS SCREENSHOT OTHER THAN THE FACT THAT I LOVE TERRA AND THINK SHE’S REALLY CUTE.

When I was in hell...

Half of me thinks that this is not done and the other half decides that it’s just right.  I chose to follow the latter because somehow the next scene is in his route already and I wanted to keep it that way. 

Let me know what you think. Message me please.  Tagging @han-pan , @nijigendiaries, @books-and-colours and to those I forgot to tag I. AM. SORRY. 

I was supposed to work on something else but I saw this lying around and I knew I had to do something about it.
