why would you make that tag why

It’s been all fun and games with me and my tarot cards, but lately I’ve been craving some depth. Some darkness. Some shadow work.

And while that’s not very May-esque, shadows don’t confine themselves to darkness, now do they?

So here is a little challenge if you would like to join in with me. I’ll be using tarot, but oracle cards will work just as well, or a combination therein. Most of the days will be one card pulls, but there are some two and three card questions as well. Feel free to pull more cards if desired.

Many of the questions ask “why” as well as the main question. For the “why” questions, I like to look at the card on the bottom of my deck for the answer.

Feel free to share or do this in private, everyone has their own needs when it comes to personal insights, I’m not going to tell you what to do with yours. Use the tag #shadow of may if you would like to share with us. Starts May 1st.

Top 10 fanfic title and summaries?

Sacchariwrites -  top 10 most popular in universe viktuuri fanfics? lol


Ok so for these are the top 15 (I couldn’t stick to top 10, I had too many ideas!) most popular Viktuuri fanfics of the Rivals universe AO3. As a disclaimer they are not based on any existing Viktuuri fanfic irl and they are not all fics and tropes I would necessarily read or write (I don’t like RPF myself), they are just the kind of fic that I imagine would be most popular in the Rivals universe considering what is publicly known of Viktor and Yuuri’s story and how they are each viewed by the public in general and their fans, plus the kind of fics that tend to be popular in most fandoms. 

I also got way too into this and started mentally writing out the whole fic for some of them but I had to restrain myself and just stick to summaries!

“I think I can make it worth your while.”

Summary:

Sweat-slicked skin gleamed under the lights, two bodies moving as one as gasps of pleasure filled the quiet room. Katsuki had his head thrown back, eyes glazed as he rode out the sensation, thighs clamped tight around the warm body beneath him and hands fisted into silver hair…

“Cut.” Came the harsh voice of the director as the studio lights snapped back on, flooding the scene with a glaring brightness. “Take five everyone.”

“And you two.” he turned to the two actors who were both blinking in the sudden light and wiping the fake sweat from where it was lying stickily across their skin. “You need to get it together soon or this whole movie is going to be a disaster. You’re supposed to be in love for Christ’s sake! Katsuki, you look like you’re counting down the minutes until you can finish this scene and go and get lunch and Nikiforov, you’re just looking bored. You’re supposed to be actors! I don’t care how much you hate each other, you better act like you don’t or you’re both getting fired.”

Katsuki glared down at Nikiforov who was still lying beneath him, looking annoyed.

“You better step up your game.” Nikiforov drawled, looking disparagingly up at the man still straddling him. “I have a reputation to uphold and I’m not going to lose it to a bad movie because of one amateur, one-hit-wonder actor who can’t do his job properly.”

“Maybe it would be easier to do my job if you weren’t such an arrogant ass who can’t admit to his own mistakes.” Katsuki shot back, glare intensifying. “And stop acting like you’re such a big deal. You might be famous but you’re not that impressive.”

“I don’t know, I’ve been reliably informed by a lot of people that I’m very impressive.”

Nikiforov flicked his eyes to where their bodies were joined, only the smallest pieces of fabric separating them, eyebrow raised suggestively. Katsuki snorted in disgust, then rolled his hips in an unexpected movement that made a certain part of Nikiforov perk up in unintentional interest.

“I’ve seen better.”

Summary:

“You know, I like my men like I like my coffee.” Nikiforov said, leaning closer across the counter and trying out his best, award winning smile. The cute barista - whose nametag was always suspiciously absent whenever Nikiforov was in the shop and whose name he still couldn’t charm out of him, although not from lack of trying - merely glared in response and continued to make his order without replying.

“Dark, strong and a little bitter.” Nikiforov added with a flirtatious wink, making a point of looking at the man’s feathery dark hair and the lean muscles that stood out in his arms, accentuated by short sleeves of the uniform he was wearing.

“That’s funny. I like you just like I like my coffee too.” The barista’s glare changed in an instant to a coy smirk and Nikiforov’s heart leapt a little in his chest at the sight. It had been weeks since he had first spotted the man at his favourite coffee shop and he had been trying to charm him from the moment their eyes first met. Unsuccessfully so far but he knew it couldn’t be long now.

“And how is that?” Nikiforov replied, layering his tone with as much suggestiveness as he could muster.

“I don’t like coffee.”

The barista turned away to serve the next customer with a look of triumph and Nikiforov could feel his face fall. Oh well, there was always next time. After all, he didn’t give up easily and he always loved a challenge.

For centuries their silent war raged on, until one day the power of the God of Spring grew too great and he taunted the God of Death, creating an eternal Spring on earth where nothing could ever die.

Angered by the arrogance of the other God, the God of Death kidnaped the God of Spring for his mockery, locking him away in the underworld and plunging the world above into an eternal winter. But hatred slowly began to change into something new and the two Gods came to realise they might not be as different as they once seemed. But both were needed to keep the balance in the world, one above and one below, and as the long winter raged on even love was called into question. Because can anyone truly be in love if they are also not free?

Charged with keeping the peace for the sake of his people, Yuuri is forced to leave his homeland forever and marry the only son and heir of the opposing kingdom, forging an alliance with marriage to protect the empire built on the backs and blood of his family and now ruled by his beloved sister. But Yuuri knows what the marriage truly is beneath the pretty words. A life-sentence, imprisoned forever under the rule of a man he hates and has faced on the battlefield countless time.

But the political machinations of the foreign court might prove to be an even deadlier battlefield than the one he just left and he must keep the peace between the two kingdoms to save the lives of millions, whatever the cost. And what’s more, his long-time enemy and new husband is not the man he believed him to be and his position as Prince Consort holds more power than he ever expected.

this is just upsetting

so apparently my art has been reposted?? and i’m telling you it’s not a good feeling… 

why.. why would people even do this?? can’t they empathize with the artists and think how it must feel to steal all their hard work away and just.. do this??

well apparently not. where do they even find this if not from the source???

and don’t even give me the excuse that artists should feel “flattered” because no. this is NOT a form of flattery. reblogging from the source and adding cute tags that is a form of flattery. this just makes me feel upset and there is that feeling of regret in sharing my work.

well i guess it’s time to put in that huge watermark then because i really don’t want this to happen again.

anonymous asked:

Numbers 27 + 32 with Jungkook (angst)

27. “You just broke the last bit of trust I had in you.”
32. “Hit me!” with Jungkook

Three chances, you gave him. Three times. Three fucking times you told him it was over. Told him that you didn’t need to put up with his bullshit. Told him that you didn’t deserve to be with someone who treated you so unfairly. And yet, each time, he would pull you into his arms. He would cry. He would apologize over and over. He would tell you he would change his ways, and that he won’t make the same mistakes ever again. He would make empty promises about keeping you happy and never wronging you again.

You came into the party, busting through the door, nobody even sparing you a glance because of how crowded the house was. A simple, oblivious text from Jimin, asking you why you didn’t tag along with Jungkook gave you all you needed to know.

You weren’t upset about him going to parties, hanging out with friends, getting shitfaced, even smoking fucking weed for goodness sake. You just didn’t get why he kept so many things from you. If you hated one thing the most, it was being lied to, and Jungkook seemed to have it in his genes. Always keeping something hidden, never managing to completely open up. You knew that was the case when you first met him, and when you first started dating, you knew that it would take a while for him to completely open up.

But you were getting fed up now. This wasn’t about him being closed up or having personal problems. This was just Jungkook being a complete asshole and not thinking about the actions of his stupid, useless actions.

However, you didn’t expect it to come to this extreme. When you saw his lips on hers, and then they parted after a few seconds with hoots and hollers from the crowd surrounding them. The fucking smile that graced his lips, as if he were fucking smug about what he just did. You really didn’t know whether to scream in rage or sob with distress, so you just stood there with your mouth agape in disbelief.

“__!” You didn’t know who called out your name, you didn’t really know anything at the moment, but you did know that it was a panicked look that came across your boyfriend’s face as his eyes searched for your figure. It didn’t take long for them to meet yours, and from your posture, he knew you saw it.

“Babe-”

You didn’t even bother anymore. You just couldn’t fucking bother, why should you?

The music was still playing but almost everyone around you was quiet, looking intently to see what happens now as if it were the fucking apocalypse. But you weren’t about to give that to them, simply turning around with a blank look on your face as you made your way straight to the door.

“Shit..” You heard him say right before you exited the door.

You were already halfway down the street when you heard him calling your name.

“__! __! Wait..”

You kept walking.

“__,” he said your name one last time before you felt him grip your arm and turn you around to face him abruptly. You flinched and shook his arm away aggressively.

“Don’t touch me!” You yelled, your voice sounding loud in the quiet night.

“__, please, just-” He ran a hand through his hair anxiously. “I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I’m drunk, we were smoking just five minutes ago. They were all cheering and yelling for me to just do it. It meant nothing, baby, you know that.”

You didn’t even realize that tears, without your consent, had started streaming down your face freely. His eyes filled with even more regret at the sight of you in tears, and he lifted a hand to wipe them away, but you only flinched once again and stepped further back.

“I said don’t touch me!” You sobbed, wiping hastily at the tears, but only more seemed to come down, so you just gave up and let them be. “You love me. Jungkook?” Your voice was suddenly quiet, and you sniffled. “Do you love me?”

“I do, I fucking do,” he answered quickly, stepping forward. You took another step back.

“Do you even know what love is?” You asked. “It means you’ll do anything to make that person happy, anything. It means you won’t hurt them, and if happen to actually hurt them, it’ll hurt you ten times as fucking much. It means you actually make a fucking effort to keep the promises you made, because if you don’t, you lose the trust you’re supposed to share. But what do you do, Jungkook? You do the exact opposite.”

He gulped, not saying a word.

“I don’t deserve this. I’m not a saint, but I just know I don’t deserve this because this is fucking torture and I’m so tired,” you sobbed out. He stepped forward. You stepped back. “You just broke the last bit of trust I had in you.”

“__, don’t.” His eyes were pleading. “Don’t say that. Slap me! Punch me! Hit me!” He yelled desperately. “Do anything, just don’t say that I don’t love you.”

“Why shouldn’t I?” Your voice was calm in contrast to his. “I’m done waiting for you to prove. I thought you would, eventually, but it’s too late now. At least I’ve done my part and showed you that I love you. My only mistake was thinking you could actually do the same for me.”

for your own peace of mind, maybe dont pay too close attention to the lyrics of some christmas songs.

this is the christmas card im sending out. steve didnt know what text i was gonna put behind it when he drew the picture.

and it turns out that clint, who has been humming christmas carols for weeks now, doesnt actually know any of the real lyrics, and has just been making them up as he goes along. this is his latest masterpiece:

Winter Soldier’s Gunnin’ You Down (To the tune of Santa Claus is Coming to Town)

You better watch out, you better not cry

You’ll probably bleed out, I’m tellin’ you why

Winter Soldier’s gunnin’ you down

He’s got a hit list, he’s starting a fight

He’s clenching his fist, it’s shiny and bright

Winter Soldier’s gunnin’ you down!

He sees you when you’re sleeping

He knows when you’re awake

His aim is really fucking good and he’s gonna assassinate

You better watch out, you better not cry

You’ll probably bleed out, I’m tellin’ you why

Winter Soldier’s gunnin’ you down

He’s yanking out wheels and firing guns

If you were smart you’d probably run

Winter Soldier’s gunning you down!

Winter Soldier’s gunning you down!

daughtersoftime  asked:

....why did you post that hunting thing? Like, I know you are probably in favor for it and stuff. Since you didn't tag it with anything there was no way for me to avoid it + it makes me super upset that a wolf who actually likes humans will get betrayed and killed for that interest? And you don't want us to protest it or help them so why would you post it? Why make your followers super upset like that I actually cried? I can't fucking deal with more bad news and how fucked up humanity is.

@daughtersoftime​ Hi! My blog posts factual content about wolves, including news or articles. In order to be able to create a realistic view on what’s going on, I share áll wolf related news - not selectively just the positive news, because it’s important to be aware of what’s going on. That includes upsetting news. I usually post the original articles without adding anything myself such as my own opinion, unless I consider it needed/useful.

I do support regulated, sustainable wolf population control - it is one of the most beneficial ways to help keep their own population, other species’ populations, and the environment they live in safe and healthy, and is beneficial to the conservation of wolves as a whole*.
But I’m against the hunting of wolves for other reasons than effective wildlife conservation. I often post petitions of cases in which the culling of wolves is not beneficial to the concerning wolf population. When needed, I speak out against culling practices that have nothing to do with sane wildlife conservation.
If people feel like they want to take action after reading news on my blog by let’s say starting a petition, I fully support that.

This case of the wolf in Saxony doesn’t concern hunting, it concerns conservation - a less pretty side of conservation, yes. I understand that you’re upset - so am I. Cases like this are always painful and sour, especially considering it was probably humans who made this wolf a threat. But there’s no denying this wolf became a legitimate threat that needs to be dealt with anyhow.

There aren’t unlimited resources for conservation, so you’ve got to pick your battles. Realistically, there is very little chance a very expensive rehabilitation program for this wolf would work. So unfortunately, this case is a “pick your battles” one, and a preventive action for the greater good, because the general public holds a very ignorant and irrantional fear towards wolves, and will not be open for reasoning if this wolf causes serious problems. Those people won’t hear to the fact that this concerned a habituated wolf who acted very unnatural, and that wolves normally don’t act like this. An attack on livestock, a pet, or a human being will do severly further damage to this already very negative public opinion on wild wolves, and will only give governments and hunters yet another argument to cull more wolves in said region, or the whole of Germany, or all over the world.

The feeding of wild animals is the cause of this problem, so preventing problems like this is mainly a matter of educating the public to not feed wildlife. There is no wildlife conservator that wants to kill an animal. But until we have fixed the cause (the feeding of wild animals), we will have to deal with the consequenses in a way that fits the bigger picture. Knowing how these politics work, there’s a very big chance that in this case protesting/petitions/etc. won’t make a difference, and even if you cóuld somehow stop them from killing this wolf, it’s just a matter of time before the wolf will cause an accident and it will then be shot either way ánd will be used as an ignorant example of the misinformed, fear-mongering idea that wolves are vicious man-eaters.

I do apologize for forgetting to tag this post with “wolf hunting”, which I normally tag posts like these with. I totally understand that news like this is upsetting, but it’s not okay assuming things about people you don’t know and accusing people of things when you don’t know what and how.

anonymous asked:

How do you create characters? Or do they come find you and tell you their stories?

I’m afraid it varies! It really depends on the situation. It feels too pragmatic to sound creative but too creative to sound pragmatic.

On the creative end, sometimes the characters do come to me. But they usually aren’t presenting their stories outright.

In a literal sense, a character idea will pop in my head, so I’ll write up a little about them—the things I feel to be true—and sometimes give them a piece of flash fiction (or something else short) so I can get a feeling for how they are and if they fit my initial assessment.

I prefer character-driven media, so I focus on what the character is like and figure out what they want. For example, my second NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) was a story about a writer. (Wow, yes, I know. So original. Writing about a writer. Yeah.) I didn’t know what the writer wanted, but I knew what she was like. I knew her base situation as well. If you know their base situation (where they are at the beginning of the story or slightly prior to it), you can figure out what makes them unhappy about it.

After all, stories are about journeys, whether they are emotional or physically moving to a different place or whatever.

My writer character felt like she didn’t have the life experience to be a good writer. Summer comes, and she chooses to take that time to travel to different places and meet new people. One conflict is that her parents don’t really want her to go, especially by herself, because she was only 17 or so.

I evaluated the character (she was an ambitious writer) and calculated in what she didn’t like about where she was (she was an inexperienced writer). So the plot/story came to me from there: she decides to leave so she can travel and get life experience.

In that sense, they don’t always exactly tell me their stories. I focused on what made the writer who she was and what kind of growth she needed to take, not necessarily the growth she wanted.

The idea was that, by the end, she had gained experience but that she didn’t feel richer for it, so she was going to struggle with trying to realize what she had actually learned by leaving. I never really got there, but that was the idea.

So I didn’t say to myself, “I have a writer character, and I want her to travel.” I said to myself, “I have a concept of a writer who is inexperienced. She wants to travel to get that valuable experience. I guess the story should be about her travels.”

The story fell flat and unfinished, of course, by virtue of how I intended for her to go cross-country when I had not done the same. It felt inauthentic, and I bailed. I jammed out some nonsense so I could say I had “won” NaNoWriMo that year.

My more pragmatic view on characters is that I have a basic concept (like, very basic, as in “I want to write about a character that worships unicorns”) and then go through my personal questionnaires to determine the rest of their traits and what they’re like.

  • Where does this character live (mountains, valley, riverbed, beach, etc.)?
  • What surrounds their home (what kind of buildings, what landmarks, what roads)?
  • What is the climate like?
  • How many moons and suns does that world have?
  • What is the time period?
  • What kind of city/town do they live in?
  • How many people live there? What kinds of people?
  • What plants (fruit, trees, spices, vegetables, etc.) do they produce?
  • What animals/wildlife do they have?
  • What is the character’s role in that place?
  • Why do they have that role?
  • What are their goals? Are they happy with their current role?
  • What is the one thing they most want to change?
  • What are their hobbies? What interests them?
  • What is their family like? Any siblings? Parents alive? What relationships do they have with their family members (MC to father, MC to sister, etc.)? What relationships do the family members have with each other (mother to father, brother to sister, etc.)?
  • Do they have any current love interests? What has their love life been like?
  • What are they good at?
  • Do they have any religious beliefs? If so, what are they? If not, why?
  • Do they perform any rituals (religious or otherwise)?
  • What body type do they have? How do other people perceive their appearance?
  • What is their view on gender roles?

I then check out what I said about their goals and roles.

  • What would they need to do in order to achieve their goals?
  • Is it feasible?
  • Would it be an interesting story? Why or why not?
  • Who would try to stop them?
  • What obstacles are in the way (giant wall, overbearing parents, lack of money, education necessities, etc.)?
  • Why are these goals and roles so important? Who are they most important to?

After all that, it feels like a good time to start plotting the story out. And it’s straight-forward from there! (Usually.) When I start plotting, I generally go with a general idea of where things start and where things end. Then, I can figure out what would happen in between.

Story-plotting is about way more than waiting for the right inspiration. Being a writer is about dedication and writing, even when inspiration is nonexistent. But you have to write to find inspiration. You can inspire yourself simply by working. You can’t let a blank page let you down. You have to create stories and not just wait for them to come to you.

Inspiration, though, is awesome. If you get inspired, run with it—with all of your ability, run with it. But you won’t feel inspiration every single day, so you have to learn how to create characters and stories on your own.


I actually have some resources already on my blog. :) For reasons of convenience, I include them below.

Dating Justin Foley would include :

    → Dating Justin Foley would include:

- Lots of cuddles and PDA, anywhere, anytime. Justin just loves showing everyone (and his friends in particular) that you’re his.

- Him often (if it’s not even every night) sleeping at your house because of his family problems which leads to late night talks about your future, when you’ll both be able to leave this town and be happy together or even about how he/you feel deep down because you both know that you can trust each other and be yourself without being judged.

- Cute nicknames → baby, baby girl/boy, sweetie, sweetheart, Jay, Angel

- Having tons of adorable and dorky selfies of the other in your phones

- Taking snaps of him while he’s training and adding them to your story with a sweet caption

- « Go, baby, go !»

- Tickle fights

- He always whistles when you’re writing something on the board, which makes you blush and him smile. Justin just loves to remind you how beautiful you are and that you’re the only girl he’s running after (even if you guys are already dating)

- Justin being overprotective and possessive which can sometimes lead to you being annoyed but he tries his best to work on himself because he doesn’t want to loose you for such stupid things

- Your mom adores him for his kindness, how polite and nice he is with her and how his eyes and smile light up when he looks at you.

Your dad thought he was a dick at first but as soon as he heard that he was playing basketball, he literally started treating him as his own son.

- Him always calling you in the middle of the night, asking if he can come over. He doesn’t even to tell you what happened.

« Justin? Is everything okay? »

« *sighs* »

« Oh god, again? Justin, I swear that one day I will show up there and kill this asshole myself! Did he hurt you badly like last time? »

« Babe, can I just can come over? Please. »

«*sighs* You know where the keys are. »

- You quietly opening your bedroom door before being pulled into a tight and desperate hug. No words are said. The only thing that can be heard is his breathing echoing against the crook of your neck, as he holds you a little more than he was already doing.

- You both staying like that for a little while until you propose to clean his face and his wounds.

- He just nods, tired, still hurt and confused about the past events.

- He winces but says nothing while you clean his wounds. Instead, he just looks into your eyes, his filled with love and relief of having you by his side.

- After you’ve helped him taking off his jacket and all, you slip under the covers and open your arms. Less than a minute is enough for him to join you, silently, rest his head on your chest and circle your waist with his arms, while you just rush your hands in his hair. No I love you’s are needed to be said cause they’ve all already been shown.

- He’s been completely honest with you about the tapes, even though he wasn’t supposed to tell anybody but he wanted you to know. You couldn’t even say a word, he wouldn’t let you. He didn’t want to let you talk, afraid that you’d tell him that you were disappointed or worse, that you wanted to leave him. So, he repeated more than twice that he regretted all the shit he did to Hannah and how bad he wanted to change for you.

- He was crying all along, which broke your heart. You could see that he was really hurt and that he really meant what he was telling you. You couldn’t just let him explaining himself like that so you just grabbed his face in both of your hands and kissed his lips.

- You often stay a little longer with him, after his training so he can teach you how to play basketball. Those fun and precious moments are the ones he cherishes the most.

- You’re always doing your best to show him how much he matters and how important he is. You’re the one giving him all the love this boy deserves and that his « family » can’t provide him.

- He doesn’t tell you that as often as he’d want to but he’s extremely thankful to have you as his girl.

- The guys know that you’re his. They all treat you like their little sister.

- Him getting kind of mad when you beat him at a game but it doesn’t last long. He cannot resist your puppy face and neck kisses.

- Neck kisses

- Hand holdings

- You try to make him stop smoking weed and shits, resulting him to promise you that one day, he’ll stop.

- « You’re my whole world. »

- You just really love each other.

SO LETS TALK “WHOS THE TRAITOR”

I’ll just start this off by axing off a HUGE group of characters right off the bat: the traitor is not a teacher, has to be from class A and cannot be from any other class, and is not a “minor” member of class A, such as Mineta or Sero. I am assuming that those characters who have been somewhat involved in the main plotline of the story are those that have the potential to be the traitor. After cutting it down from that, I’ll just run through specific instances.

Of course it’s not Midoriya, or the story would make no sense; same with Bakugou due to having been kidnapped. I’m cutting out Iida, Todoroki, and Momo for their involvement in helping to rescue Bakugou in the AfO arc, and also because they all have a family history in heroics.  Froppy I’m cutting out more because of the way the story is written makes her a really awkward fit as traitor. Denki is one of the theories I’ve seen floating around, but I think that from the most recent arc, there’s a little too much leaning away from Denki having the capacity for being a traitor.

Kirishima, although I definitely wouldn’t be too surprised if it did turn out to be him, still doesn’t fit the bill for me. My initial reason was that Kirishima obviously wants to save Bakugou from the villains during that particular arc - he initiates the entire thing. While even despite on that, I was open to the idea of Kirishima being the traitor, but thinking on it there are two other reasons I can’t sink my teeth in. The first is that Kirishima is just… so honest?? and also Bakugou’s kinda-probably best friend? If the villains really wanted Bakugou to join the villain side, Kirishima probably would have known, and also he could have easily spoken to Bakugou about STUFF and weeded out whether or not Bakugou was really villain material. He also strikes me as honest enough to bide his time with Bakugou and then when the time came, literally just saying ‘hey, Bakugou join me on the villains’ side.’

My second reason is crucial: Kirishima is just not AS close to Midoriya as pretty much every other main character. While I’m sure Midoriya would be upset if Kirishima was the traitor, it wouldn’t have the same effect as a lot of the other main characters in the series. The shock factor for Midoriya, appropriately, would be more like “oh no, how could you?”  and I don’t think that’s what Horikoshi wants. Good traitor reveals are big, painful, and close to the heart. They’re someone who the main character trusts, and a lot of the time, a character who’s been there from the start.

So who is left?

The first few days of Jared not seeing you at work, he accepted that. He didn’t expect you to to be around him much for a while after what had happened. When it started to hit a week of him not seeing you at work, or anywhere else, he started to wonder. “Jen?”

“Yeah?” Jensen turned from the screen he was re-watching the last scene they shot on.

“Have you seen Y/N?”

Jensen thought for a second. “No, haven’t heard from her since River’s birthday. Why? You haven’t either?”

Jared shook his head. “Not since…”

“Since Gen took you back?” Jared nodded. Jensen knew everything that happened. “I’m sure she’s around. Probably just keeping some distance for a bit. Give her time.”

“Yeah..” Jared nodded. “Yeah, maybe we just need time..” He scanned the area hoping to get a glimpse of you hurrying off somewhere at least.

Should you talk about the kiss and how embarrassed you were, or should you talk about how much time the two of you have spent together and how hurt you were that he downplayed it.
