Fic: What I Did on My Summer Vacation

Here is my piece for the “Summer Vacation” prompt for the Olicity Hiatus Fic-A-Thon organized by @thebookjumper​. Read it on Ao3 or below. Hope you enjoy! 

What I Did on My Summer Vacation

“Felicity, can I read my homework project to you?”

She looked up from her computer to see William standing there with a stack of papers in his hands and a hopeful look in his eyes. The more and more time she spent with this kid, the more he reminded her of Oliver.

“School doesn’t even start until next week – how can you have homework already?”

“My teacher sent an e-mail out saying we all had to do a report on what we did over our summer vacation. My mom made me promise I would work on it here if she let me come,” William explained.

Ever since they returned from their harrowing adventure on Lian Yu a few months ago, Oliver and Samantha had worked together on the whole co-parenting thing. And really Felicity too, if she wanted to be technical about it, since she and Oliver were together. William had been spending every other weekend with them, and they even went on a short roadtrip together for a week this summer.

“OK, lay it on me,” Felicity said.

This is my new job, and my new desk, where I make better money and no longer have to get yelled at and cursed out and reminded of my past (like I did at my previous job). (I also like what I do!! And I’m basically my own boss!)

Everything is falling into place. I am so grateful. I reblogged that job thing and that money thing and it worked btw lol

I’m working, thriving, about to move into a house with my boo daddy, adopt a dog and shit. I’m getting paid to perform poetry. I’m getting paid to model. I’m getting two weeks paid vacation during Christmas time and can visit my family for longer than two days for Christmas for the first time in almost three years. I did NOT see my life being like this a few months back. I’m. fucking. hype.

I need to take my ass to church and thank God like asap

“Bucky!” you whispered excitedly. You jumped on the bed and covered him in kisses. Bucky’s flesh hand rubbed your sides then your ass before settling on your back.

“Hey, doll, daddy’s home,” he told you after you pulled away.

“I’m not calling you that Bucky,” you said while straddling him.

“Why not? It’s hot and it turns me on,” he pouted.

“I have one dad and it’s Tony Stark,”

“Well dad and daddy are totally different,” Bucky argued.

  • Sirius: Mhm?
  • Remus: About my gift, you remember I told you not to get me anything, right?
  • Sirius: [innocently] I'll get you maybe one little thing.
  • Remus: The owl you were planning to get was pretty expensive.
  • Sirius: How did you know that?
  • Remus: I didn't. You just told me.
  • Sirius: [amused] All right, it was a bit beyond the budget, but it's our first Christmas together, you know? After this one, I swear I'll behave.
  • Remus: [smiles] Sirius, I promise you, even if you don't get me my own vacation island in the Pacific, I'll still be here next Christmas, and every Christmas after that. Probably still telling you to ease up on the gifts.
  • Sirius: Well darn Moony, now I can't get you an island in the Pacific.
  • Remus: [chuckles softly] I'm serious.
  • Sirius: What a coincidence! So am I.

Eisuke Ichinomiya fanfic: Dirty Dancing (part 3)

Days, weeks, months have passed since the last time you’ve seen or heard from Eisuke. You don’t know if he has tried to call, text, email, message or try to get ahold of you virtually because you’ve blocked him from your phone, email, and social media. You thought blocking him out of your life would make it easier to get over him but you were just miserable. You still work at the Tres Spades because you’re paid well, you like your coworkers, and in general the job is great. The only flaw is that your ex is the boss. You haven’t seen Eisuke around the hotel the past few months. Apparently he’s in Cancún where the new Tres Spades will open next year. You wanted to be with Eisuke but you didn’t know if you were ready to face him. You’re not sure if you’ve forgiven him for what he did at the anniversary party of the Tres Spades. You’re still a bit shaken up from the events that took place in Ota’s suite. You’ve never seen that side of him. How do you feel? What are you going to do? What’s the right thing to do? These thoughts run through your head frequently and you still have no answer for either of them.

*Eisuke’s POV*
I’ve been in Cancún for a few months now. I’m glad that the Ichinomiya Group is expanding and that I’m still very successful but there’s still a big hole in my life and it can only be filled by _____. I’ve tried to reach her but I’m never able to because of some kind of connection error or something. I think you get those messages when someone blocks you. She has blocked me from her life. She hates me. I still love her. I hate that I made those decisions but there’s nothing I can do to change them. I’m trying to keep it together but she is my motivation, my muse, my everything. I can’t live without her. How am I supposed to tell her how I feel without having her turn away or hit me again? She wouldn’t believe a word I say anyways. I should hire her at the new hotel. No she’ll just refuse. I’ll make her say yes. No she might quit. Goddammit!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*Your POV*
It’s close to Christmas time and you’re going to take time off of work to go on vacation. Your family decided to go to Cancún so you thought you would go with a friend and spend Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with your family and the rest of the time vacationing with your friend.
“I already asked to have a week off. Come on please!” You were begging Sakiko to go with you.
“Ok I guess. It does sound like fun.” Sakiko says with a smile.
“Ok good then it’s settled. We will be leaving a week from tomorrow!!!” The two of you squeal with excitement and then return to work.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You finally arrived to beautiful Cancún. You were so excited for this vacation with your friend and family.
“Too bad the Tres Spades isn’t open yet otherwise we could’ve stayed there haha.” Sakiko jokes.
Is Eisuke still here? You wondered to yourself as you headed to the hotel in the shuttle.

“Here is your key. Enjoy your stay!”
“Thank you.”
The room has a great view of the ocean. There are so many different shades of blue. This is definitely the perfect place to build a hotel.
“_____ we should go out and experience the night life here. I’m sure it’ll be fun!”
“Yeah let’s go tonight.”

That night you went to a club with Sakiko. When you got in, the two of you got a table and ordered your drinks.
“I really like it here. It’s so lively.” You say enthusiastically.
“I’m really enjoying it so far.” Sakiko says with excitement as she looks around the club admiring everything about it.
“We’ve been waiting for our drinks for a while. I’m going to head over to the bar and see what’s up.” You get out of your chair and head towards the bar. You accidentally bump into a tall man that’s hunched over the counter.
“Oh I’m so sorry.” No response. Ok then.
“Hey my friend and I ordered our drinks a while ago. I was wondering if–”
One of the bartenders starts saying something in Spanish and you don’t understand.
“Espere por tu turno. No eres la única persona aquí. Hay mucha gente en este pinche club.”
Not knowing what to do you head back to your table but you don’t find Sakiko. You look around and see her talking to someone. That man looks familiar. Oh that’s right, he’s the man you accidentally bumped into and he didn’t respond to your apology. It looks like they’re hitting it off. You sit down at the table and your drinks finally arrive. It didn’t want to interrupt Sakiko so you started your drink without her. You finish your drink by yourself and Sakiko is still talking to the man. You glanced over at them every now and then. Wow they really must be getting along. She better get his number at this rate. You’re about the get up and approach Sakiko but she arrives to the table.
“We should go.” She says.
“You haven’t had your drink. Don’t you want to–”
“____ we should go now.”
Without questioning her, the two of you leave the club. As you’re waiting for a taxi to pick you up you’re still curious as to why Sakiko wanted to leave all of a sudden.
“So you really hit it off with that guy.”
“I already kind of knew him.” Sakiko says in a monotone.
“Is he your boyfriend?”
“____ that was Eisuke.”

~**BONUS**~
*Eisuke’s POV*
Work has be stressful so I decided to go to a popular club here in Cancún. I went by myself because I’ve spent too much time with the same people and needed to get out. I was drinking at the bar and someone bumps into me. Stupid drunk probably. They apologized but drunks aren’t worth my time. I don’t even look at the person.
It starts to get kind of crowded so I moved and I see a familiar face. She works at my hotel right? Saki? Sako? God what’s her name…Sakiko! I walk up to her and pull her aside and start talking to her.
“I didn’t expect to see you here Mr Ichinomiya.”
“I could say the same to you. Aren’t you supposed to be working on the other side of the world?”
“I’m on vacation with ___.”
“What?” Did she just say what I think she said?
“____’s family is here for Christmas so we’re going to be here for a week.”
“Where is ____?”
“She’s checking on our drinks. I actually don’t see her right now.” Sakiko looks at the bar and ____ is nowhere in sight.
“Oh she’s at our table. I should probably go join her. It was good to see you Mr. Ichinomiya.” She bows to me.
“Wait! Where are you guys staying?”
“Excuse me?”
“Sorry it’s just that I’ve been wanting to speak to ____ for a while but I can’t get ahold of her.”
“Oh we’re staying at the–” She suddenly stops talking. “Wait this isn’t right.”
“What do you mean? We’re not in a professional environment.”
“No that’s not it.” She pauses for a moment, “I know what you did to her and I don’t think she should be speaking to you.”
“But I–”
She’s gone and I try to stop her but she’s already leaving with _____.


Yayy part 3 is finally out and I hope you enjoy it! Also fun fact about me…I’m bilingual. I’m fluent in English and Spanish :P You can either google translate that Spanish quote or if you already know Spanish and understand it then you’re extra cool lol :D

me after a break
  • me rn: you know what I need? I need a nice break from school and life where I can watch Netflix shows, chill back, maybe accomplish some of my goals, and watch Disney/Harry Potter/Christmas movie marathons. maybe study a little who knows and just relax.
  • my brain:
  • my brain: dafuq bitch?!¿ we just had a five day weekend what the fuck did you do

I’ve been through it all:
Gained 20lbs
Lost 40lbs
Gained 15lbs
Lost 5lbs
Gained… And Lost

It’s been frustrating. I don’t have time like I did in college to focus 90% of my time on fitness, but damn I know a healthier me always produces a happier me. And that is always what I strive for. A mentally and physically happy me.

Graduating college and starting my care has been a beautiful stressful journey. Did you know I there are always donuts in the teacher lounge??? Over my three week winter vacation I really tried to get back to my personal goals, realizing my perfection cannot be all I live for. I lost 10lbs in a month (over Christmas and New Years) by eating good food and going to the gym. Pushing myself to not only work harder, but really think about what I am putting in my body.

I’m not just an educator. I am so many things. And learning that has been the jump start to this new journey.

THIS IS ONLY THE START!

true love’s kiss

Summary:  Marinette underestimates herself when, in Adrien’s unbiased opinion, she has nothing to be scared of.

Day #5 of Adrinette April, and the topic for the day is school play! (You can check out the full calendar on @krazy-ky-sta-hatter‘s post here!)

AO3 link here! 


“She what?!

Adrien and Nino jumped at the sound of the sudden scream, turning to face the two girls that sat behind them. It seemed that they had been the source of the sound, and that everyone in the class was turned their way as well.

Marinette and Alya, however, continued to be oblivious to the attention they were drawing, as Alya nodded to confirm what Marinette had just screamed. "She just texted me now.” Alya said, handing Marinette her phone, which displayed a text message. “Apparently, she’s caught a fever and the doctor’s ordered strict bed rest, so there’s no way she can rehearse and be in the actual play as the lead role. All she can be is one of our fairy godmothers, which, strangely, is something we need.”

Marinette let out a sound of frustration, catching her head in her hands. “First Mylène, then Rose, too?! There’s no one left, what are we going to do?!”

“What about Chloé? She can act, right, Sabrina?” Alya asked, standing up in her seat to ask the girl in question.

But Sabrina only shook her head, gesturing to the rather empty seat beside her. “Chloé’s on vacation somewhere in the United States, she won’t come back ‘till after Christmas break.”

Both Marinette and Alya slumped in their seats after hearing that. “Great. I have never, in my whole life, wanted Chloé to actually be here and torment me.” Marinette mumbled.

Summary: 

Niall’s head was sitting in the fireplace, wide grin lighting up his features as flames licked the bright tips of his hair. Louis promptly dropped his tray at the sight.

“Bloody hell!” He yelled, half at the sudden appearance of Niall in the fire and half at the scalding cocoa he’d just dropped on his bare foot. “What are you doing?!”

Niall just continued to grin, clearly highly amused by Louis hopping on one foot and desperately trying to search for a weapon he could use to beat his friend’s head out of the fireplace.

“Well,” Niall began. “We’re going on an adventure!”

Or, the one where Louis and Harry’s Christmas holiday at Hogwarts is rudely interrupted when they’re dragged off on a tropical wizard’s vacation, featuring some angry centaurs, a spell gone wrong, and the ‘weirdest birthday anyone’s ever had. Ever’.

-When you have posted your incredible one-shot, send Red or Roo a message to your link so that we can add it to the list and enjoy your story. If either of us DO NOT like your post it is because we have not seen it so if we fail to do so within 24 hours, feel free to send another message.

-Once you tag us in your post, make sure to also use the tag #springtimeinmiddleearth so that we know it is part of the writing challenge.

Now just remember, it is YOUR one-shot which means you have control and it is your creativity which rules, not ours. You can do whatever you want with whatever characters you like and don’t be afraid to add your own flair. We can’t wait to see the results so you better start writing!

Due Date: June 25th, one month folks! :)

First Holiday with the Stewarts

Gail and Holly spend their first holiday with the Stewarts.  (Same characters as my story Waking Up.  I decided if baileychabot can borrow Izzy for one of her ficlets, I could give it a go too.  Consider this my New Years present to those of you who wanted a sequel to Waking Up.  This would be about 5 months past the end of Waking Up.)

“Holly!” Gail said with a pout.

“Gail” Holly answered.

Dear Klaroliners,

First of all, thank you SO MUCH, for all that you guys have done today. You’re amazing. And extra special thank you to all of you who have contributed time to create little gifts for everyone who is donating!!

I can’t just sit back and do nothing so I’m going to contribute something.

Right now, the fundraiser is at 80% of it’s goal. Which is HELLA awesome. I never expected all of that. 

So here’s the deal… 

Some of a you MIGHT have heard the rumor that a certain couple of sister wives of mine let slip (nonamesmirandaandashley) that I am writing a sequel to The Madness Underneath. Yes and no to that. I started writing a first chapter over Christmas vacation at my mom’s house using her computer. I just did it out of boredom and needing to cheer up from fire catastrophe’s and writing makes me happy. So I wrote a bit of it. I can’t say that I have any time or intention of finishing it. 

But I WILL…post what I have written for all of you lovelies to read as a massive thank you. It’s the least I can do.

HOWEVER

If we reach 90% of the goal…I will finish writing the whole chapter for everyone to read. So instead of 2000 words…you’ll get around 10,000 words!!!

And if we reach 100% of the goal…I’m gonna do something a little major. 

Raise your hand if you like printed books? Everyone? Good. 

If 100% of the goal is met, I’ll enter everyone’s names into a raffle drawing and the winner will receive a printed copy of Timeless….I’m not talking a crappy, home printer version of the fanfiction…I mean an actual bound, set, covered version of the story. A real book you can add to your home library. 

Sound cool? Sound lame? It’s what I could think of to do to contribute some measure of thanks for the fandom’s kindness. I love you all!

Day 2 of my Christmas Kansas Vacation!

We woke up and exchanged gifts between the two of us. Kevin decided he wanted to try his stuff on and hold his presents for a photo. I found him a Captain America sweatband it is perfect. He made breakfast and brought me 6 pieces of bacon!! That’s true love right there.

We took our time then had a late lunch at Cracker Barrel. In my experience no matter what state you’re in, Cracker Barrel feels the same and like home. Well done! We did some shopping and tried to survive the cold. AT ONE POINT HIS CAR SAID IT WAS ONE DEGREE. Sorcery.

We finished the evening with a date to the Warren to see The Hobbit in IMAX. Legolas was my favorite part! And funny story, Sarah was at the same theater with her husband!

We were supposed to go to CrossFit this morning but we woke up to the roads not being the best. I’m not mad about not riding on them again today. The 12 days of Christmas WODS some boxes are doing are cute though!

The high today is 18. Now I see why birds fly south for the winter!!!

Klaine Advent: 12.21 Vacation

Because “uniform” is kicking my ass. And bc work is kicking my ass, I’ve decided to come back to it. So, still keeping with Christmas Traditions as the theme… a little twist. 552 words (AO3)

Kurt took the offered tumbler from Blaine and sipped, then swallowed back more of the citrus-y-sweet drink than he probably should have.

What he didn’t notice, was Blaine did the same.

With one more longing look out across the Atlantic, Kurt put his glass on the rail of the wooden porch and sighed. “I have a confession.”

“Hmmm… funny that. So do I.”
