literally everywhere i go in london there are attractive bilingual young professionals discussing their elaborate business plans with super intense eye contact coupled with vivacious hand gestures... i feel so inadequate
I crept out of my room at around six in the morning, a small travel bag in my hand filled with clothes, shower/bathroom necessities, and my phone and laptop chargers. “Where are you going?” I stopped with my hand on the front door’s doorknob at the sound of Harrison’s voice. I turned around and faced him, a guilty look on my face as he had caught me red-handed. His eyes shifted to the bag in my hand and his eyebrows pulled in, in confusion. “Are you okay?” I put a finger to his lips, trying to indicate I wanted him to speak in a lower voice.
“I don’t want to wake up Tom.” Harrison nodded, walking over to me and pulling me into his room, which was the farthest from all of ours, the room on the other side of the loft. He quietly shut the door and turned to me, signaling me to sit on his bed. Once we both got ourselves situated, the questions began.
“Why do you have a bag? Is it packed? I thought you weren’t moving in with Tony, didn’t you guys break-up? Jacob’s gonna kill you.”
You guys are the best. And now there are 20,000 of you! That’s like, a tiny city’s worth of people which is extremely cool and overwhelming.
To celebrate, we’ve decided to go on an epic journey back in time, at least for the next few weeks. We’ll be reblogging some of our favorite tags from the earliest months of this blog alongside new content (think one reblog per day and one new post per day). If you’re not super enthused you can just blacklist “reblog” and you’ll only see the new stuff.
All our gratitude for your enthusiasm and support,
"I’d rather say what I wish was in the show that was left out". The floor is yours ...
I WISH THIS HAD BEEN IN THE SHOW……
I followed Anselm down the short center aisle, genuflecting in his wake. The slight figure of Brother Bartolome knelt toward the front, head bowed. He didn’t turn at the faint noise of our entrance, but stayed motionless, bent in adoration.
The Sacrament itself was almost obscured by the magnificence of its container. The huge monstrance, a sunburst of gold more than a foot across, sat serenely on the altar, guarding the humble bit of bread at its center.
“But what shall I do?” I had asked him, voice lowered in respect of night and silence as we had approached the chapel.
“Nothing, ma chère,” he had replied, simply. “Only be.”
So I sat, listening to my own breathing, and the tiny sounds of a silent place; the inaudible things normally hidden in other sounds. The settling of stone, the creak of wood. The hissing of the tiny, unquenchable flames. A faint skitter of some small creature, wandered from its place into the home of majesty.
It was a peaceful place, I would grant Anselm that. In spite of my own fatigue and my worry over Jamie, I gradually felt myself relaxing, the tightness of my mind gently unwinding, like the relaxation of a clock spring. Strangely, I didn’t feel at all sleepy, despite the lateness of the hour and the strains of the last few days and weeks.
After all, I thought, what were days and weeks in the presence of eternity? And that’s what this was, to Anselm and Bartolome, to Ambrose, to all the monks, up to and including the formidable Abbot Alexander.
It was in a way a comforting idea; if there was all the time in the world, then the happenings of a given moment became less important. I could see, perhaps, how one could draw back a little, seek some respite in the contemplation of an endless Being, whatever one conceived its nature to be.
And if there was eternity, or even the idea of it, then perhaps Anselm was right; all things were possible. And all love? I wondered. I had loved Frank; I still did. And I loved Jamie, more than my own life. But bound in the limits of time and flesh, I could not keep them both. Beyond, perhaps? Was there a place where time no longer existed, or where it stopped? Anselm thought so. A place where all things were possible. And none were necessary.
And was there love there? Beyond the limits of flesh and time, was all love possible? Was it necessary?
The voice of my thoughts seemed to be Uncle Lamb’s. My family, and all I knew of love as a child. A man who had never spoken love to me, who had never needed to, for I knew he loved me, as surely as I knew I lived. For where all love is, the speaking is unnecessary. It is all. It is undying. And it is enough.
Time passed without my awareness of it, and I was startled by the sudden appearance of Anselm before me, coming through the small door near the altar. Surely he had been sitting behind me? I glanced behind, to see one of the young monks whose name I didn’t know genuflecting near the rear entrance. Anselm bowed low before the altar, then motioned to me with a nod toward the door.
“You left?” I said, once outside the chapel. “But I thought you weren’t supposed to leave the, er, the Sacrament, alone?”
He smiled tranquilly. “I didn’t, ma chère. You were there.”
I repressed the urge to argue that I didn’t count. After all, I supposed, there was no such thing as a Qualified Official Adorer. You only had to be human, and I imagined I was still that, though I barely felt it at times.
Jamie’s candle still burned as I passed his door, and I caught the rustle of turning pages. I would have stopped, but Anselm went on, to leave me at the door of my own chamber. I paused there to bid him good night, and to thank him for taking me to the chapel.
“It was…restful,” I said, struggling to find the right word.
He nodded, watching me. “Oui, madame. It is.” As I turned to go, he said, “I told you that the Blessed Sacrament was not alone, for you were there. But what of you, ma chère? Were you alone?”
“I stopped, and looked at him for a moment before answering.
“No,” I said. “I wasn’t.”
BECAUSE THIS ……
“But what I can’t understand,” he said, careful to be tactful, “is, er, well…why?”
“Why go in for this Perpetual Adoration business? You’ve never been the least devout, no more than I have. And you don’t go to Mass or anything; Father Beggs asks me every week where you are.”
I shook my head. “I can’t really say, Frank. It’s just something…I need to do.” I looked at him, helpless to explain adequately. “It’s…peaceful there,” I said, finally.
He opened his mouth as though to speak further, then turned away, shaking his head. It was peaceful.
The car park at the church was deserted, save for the single car of the adorer on duty at this hour, gleaming an anonymous black under the arc lights. Inside, I signed my name to the log and walked forward, coughing tactfully to alert the eleven o’clock adorer to my presence without the rudeness of direct speech. I knelt behind him, a heavyset man in a yellow windcheater. After a moment, he rose, genuflected before the altar, turned and walked to the door, nodding briefly as he passed me. The door hissed shut and I was alone, save for the Sacrament displayed on the altar, in the great golden sunburst of the monstrance.
There were two candles on the altar, big ones. Smooth and white, they burned steadily in the still air, without a flicker. I closed my eyes for a moment, just listening to the silence.
Everything that had happened during the day whirled through my mind in a disjointed welter of thoughts and feelings. Coatless, I was shaking with cold from the short walk through the parking lot, but slowly I grew warm again, and my clenched hands relaxed in my lap. At last, as usually happened here, I ceased to think.
Whether it was the stoppage of time in the presence of eternity, or only the overtaking of a bone-deep fatigue, I didn’t know. But the guilt over Frank eased, the wrenching grief for Jamie lessened, and even the constant tug of motherhood upon my emotions receded to the level of background noise, no louder than the slow beating of my own heart, regular and comforting in the dark peace of the chapel.
“O Lord,” I whispered, “I commend to your mercy the soul of your servant James.” And mine, I added silently. And mine.

So this is basically a little drabble/potential mini-series based off of @destiny-islanders Spidey-Prom AU. I highly recommend checking it out if you haven’t. Spiderman has always been my favorite Marvel superhero since I am a comic nerd so naturally I am obsessed with Spidey-Prom. Sorry guys, couldn’t help it. *shrugs*
Being bitten by a spider exposed to the OZ Compound wasn’t something on Prompto Argentum’s bucket list, but here he was, staring at the back of his right hand. The bite looked like any other spider bite, but this one seemed more red and itchy than the average. A quick tour around the labs of Insomnia Industries gave Prompto the perfect photo opportunity for some pictures with the machinery and serums. But that tour led him to where he was right now after said spider crawled onto his hand from his camera after descending from the ceiling above.
He thought it would go away after a few days. But after realizing his once not-so-perfect vision was now perfect (he put his glasses on and it was like static invaded his eyesight) and nearly hurling his lamp out his bedroom window when his hand was suddenly stuck like glue to the switch, he figured that it was more than just a normal spider bite. He soon put his theory to the test of tried out every quality he knew a spider possessed. Crawling on walls? Check. Superhuman agility and senses? Double check. Needless to say, Prompto was quite freaked out.
“What are you?” He murmured, his attention never leaving the bite.
“Hey Prompto!” Noctis Lucis Caelum–son of Regis Lucis Caelum and nephew to Ardyn Izunia, owners of Insomnia Industries–called out to his blond best friend, who was currently putting stuff in his locker.
Prompto closed the locker just as Noctis rose his hand to clap his best friend on the back. Right as Noctis started to swing his hand down, Prompto felt a tingling sensation at the base of his skull. Time seemed to slow and his mind was sent racing. His body moved before he could even process it and before he knew it, Noctis slammed his hand into Prompto’s locker. He pulled his hand back with a pained expression and fought back a scream.
“Ow! Have you been taking lessons on how to improve your reflexes, dude?”
Prompto chuckled and scratched the back of his neck. “Something like that.”
Noctis shook his injured hand a bit before composing himself as best as he could. “So, ignoring that weird mishap… wait, where are your glasses?”
Prompto mentally slapped himself as he rummaged through his backpack and put his glasses on, his vision immediately becoming clouded to the point where he could barely see Noctis’ face. “Thanks dude! I thought I was forgetting something!”
Noctis stared at him for a bit before shrugging. “Anyway, are you up for hanging out at the arcade later?”
“S-Sorry dude, I’ve got a load of work to get done for the Lucian Journal. You know how Dino is,” Prompto lied. In actuality, he wanted to hang out with Noctis, he really did, but he had to learn more about what’s been going with himself lately.
“Aw man. Oh well, just go into some weird coma and get it done using speed like Barry Allen.”
Prompto chuckled at Noctis’ joke and clapped him on the shoulder, only for his hand to get stuck to his shoulder. Noctis stared with one eyebrow raised as Prompto tried to pull it off without looking suspicious. When he finally did manage to detach his hand from his best friend, Prompto simply chuckled nervously.
“I think you spilt something on your coat, buddy,” He spoke. “Anyway, I should get going! Photography awaits!”
After making a mental note to change his prescription lenses to regular lenses, Prompto took his leave and left behind a very confused Noctis. He was passing by the trees in the courtyard when he ran into his other best friend, Lunafreya Nox Fleuret, daughter of Sylvia Nox Fleuret, President and CEO of Noxchem, and younger sister of Ravus Nox Fleuret.
Noxchem was a multinational chemical corporation from Tenebrae that’s been run by the Nox Fleuret family for years. They’ve just recently combined with Insomnia Industries to band together to recreate the Super Soldier serum that was used for the Lucian Military back in the War of M.E. 674. So that meant that the Nox Fleuret family had to move to Insomnia if they wanted to recreate the serum easier.
“Hey Prompto!” Lunafreya beamed. “I just got you the coolest photo op ever!”
“I really wish I could take it, Luna,” Prompto rushed out, stepping around his friend. “But I’ve got tons of work to do for the paper.”
Luna groaned. “Oh come on! All Dino does is work you day and night! And when you finally show him an amazing photo, he marks it off as garbage!”
“Look,” Prompto sighed. “Dino Ghiranze isn’t the best boss in the world, I know, but I need this job if I plan on moving out after school is over.”
“Fine, but if you need any cool opportunities you know who to call.”
“Ha ha very funny,” Luna spoke, lightly punching his shoulder.
Prompto bid his friend farewell and left the school grounds. It became a routine for the past few weeks really. Going to school, praying to the Six that no one saw anything weird–well, weirder–going on with him, going home, and researching spiders and whatever Insomnia Industries revealed about the OZ Compound. He soon landed an interview with the Lead Chemist of Insomnia Industries, Ignis Scientia. Prompto told him that he was a scientist with a blog and wanted to share more of the compound with his readers, which was a flat-out lie. He merely wanted to learn more about the compound and figure out if he should be even more worried than he was.
The day of the interview came quicker than Prompto anticipated. He walked through the rotating glass doors of Insomnia Industries and tried his best not to gawk at the high ceiling, polished tile floor, light gray walls, and the glass chandeliers that hung high above everyone’s heads. He made his way over to the elevator and pushed the button that took him to the fifteenth floor of the twenty story building. The elevator dinged and he walked out, quickly making his way over to room 234 and pushing the door open. Sitting at the desk was a bespectacled man who was typing away at his computer. Prompto awkwardly knocked on the door frame and the man finally noticed him.
“You must be Prompto,” the man spoke with a diligent tone. “I’m Ignis Scientia, Lead Chemist of Insomnia Industries. I understand that you have some questions about the OZ Compound.”
Prompto nodded and sat down in the chair in front of Ignis’ desk after shutting the door. “I do. Are there any side effects for it? Like what does it do?”
“Jumping straight into it aren’t we? Well, the OZ Compound is supposed to give humans enhanced abilities, turning them into a super soldier of some sort, but so far there has been no success. There has only been one person to test out the compound, and that person is Mister Izunia himself. Poor man. He tried to make a point to Sylvia but, she nearly cancelled the partnership between our companies when she saw that there was no progress in the development.”
Prompto’s eyes widened. This could be the source behind his powers.
“Have you tested this compound out on animals?” He asked. “More specifically, spiders?”
Ignis’ eyes widened before he stood up and walked over to the door, locking it. He turned back to Prompto with stern eyes. “Were you bitten?”
“W-What?” Prompto stammered.
“We infused the OZ Compound with a spider a few weeks back, but it escaped. Were you bitten by it?”
Prompto didn’t know what to do. He didn’t want to lie to the man who A) has answers and B) could potentially help him through this. So he nodded.
“Incredible,” Ignis gasped. “What traits have you been showing?”
“So far? Enhanced senses and Wall-Crawling, along with this weird sense that I get when someone goes to touch me.”
“Wall-Crawling? Well, it seems as if the compound has passed along some traits of the arachnid class on to you.”
“Yea, I noticed.”
“I must inform Mister Izunia and Mister Caelum right away.”
“NO!” Prompto shouted. “I-I mean, no.”
“Why not?” Ignis asked with an incredulous look.
“I don’t want anyone finding out. Anyone else I mean. If people knew, I’d be used as some sort of test subject and seen as a freak at school. Please, don’t tell them.”
Ignis stared at him with a calculating look in his eyes before sighing. “Fine. But, I will have to tell my personal security guard. I have an idea for you in mind.”
Insomnia had a high crime rate, there was no doubt about that. The crime rate seemed to reach its peak at night though, always around midnight. The criminals in this city always preyed on the rich and defenseless, those who were both were considered to be a huge bonus. Unfortunately for Noctis, he was the next victim of a mugging.
The time was 1:15 A.M., it was a long day at Insomnia Industries and Noctis told his dad that he was going to walk home since he was getting tired. So he did, taking some alleyways as shortcuts. He was nearly home when a man clad in all black (including the cliche ski mask) stepped out from the shadows, pointing a pistol at Noctis’ forehead.
“I know who you are, Lucis Caelum,” the man spoke. “So let’s make this quick and give me all of your money.”
Noctis gasped in fear and backed away, his hands up to show that he was defenseless. “Listen! I have nothing!”
“Bullshit! You’re a rich daddy’s boy, you’re loaded! Now give me what you have!”
“I’m telling the truth I have nothing!”
The man turned the safety of his gun off right before the two boys heard a distant “YYYYAAAHHHHOOOOOO” ring out and proceed to get closer. The two boys turned their attention to where the sound came from and saw a man clad in red and blue. He wore a red sleeveless hoodie with a blue long-sleeve shirt underneath and red fingerless cotton gloves with two metal contraptions on both wrists. He also sported blue pants tucked into red calf-high socks and red shoes along with a red mask that covered his entire head. The only things that stuck out were the black and white make-shift eyes and black spider emblem on his chest. The weirdest thing? The guy was swinging into the alleyway.
He seemed to have been new at his job (if you’d call it that) because his glee soon turned into panic as he flailed his legs around while screaming “BRAKES!” He crashed into the nearby brick building and fell to the pavement. He then stood up, a bit unbalanced.
“Okay!” He shouted. “Now THAT was a rush!”
Noctis and the mugger both shared the same incredulous expression before the weirdly dressed man tossed the lid of a metal garbage can at the mugger like it was a game of frisbee. It hit the mugger right on the head and the man laughed.
“Fore!” He yelled.
The man walked up to Noctis, ignoring the groans of the mugger as he held his future-swollen head. The man almost told Noctis his name but decided against that.
‘What would he say?’ he thought. ‘You can’t just tell him your name. That bit is quite obvious, Prompto.’
“Who are you?” Noctis asked.
“I’m… uhh,” Prompto spoke from behind the mask, silently thanking the fact that Noctis didn’t know it was him. “Spider… Man…”
“Spider-Man?” Noctis asked with a raised eyebrow.
“Isn’t that pretty generic considering your… um, outfit…?”
Prompto looked down at what he was wearing and sighed. “I’m working on the costume…”
Noctis sighed and pulled a wad of cash out of his pocket. “Here, you’re probably expecting a reward.”
“No!” Prompto shrieked. “Keep your money! I don’t want it!”
“I saved you from someone trying to take it from you. You don’t have to pay me.”
Noctis stuffed the wad of cash back into his pocket and nudged his head in the mugger’s direction. “What are you going to do about him?”
Prompto waved him off. “The cops can come and get him. I’m new to this.”
“As if that wasn’t obvious,” Noctis thought.
“Well! I should be going! Nice meeting you, citizen!” Prompto shouted ecstatically and with a mock salute.
He shot his right hand out (his wrist bent and index and pinky finger extended) towards the top of one of the buildings around them and a string resembling a spider web shot out from the metal contraption on his wrist. He then tugged on the web and he shot up into the air, landing on the edge on the roof not-so-gracefully.
“Spider what?” The gruff voice of Gladiolus Amicitia rang through Prompto’s phone as he walked through the halls of the school.
“Spider-Man,” Prompto sighed, a bit exasperated that Ignis’ security guard and his new combat trainer couldn’t get a simple name right.
“I would’ve went with something cooler, Web-Man.”
“HEY, ARGENTUM!” A booming voice sneered.
Prompto groaned and turned his attention down the hall, where he spotted the quarterback of the football team and his bully, Loqi Tummelt. Prompto quickly muttered a quick “I’ll call you back” to Gladio and hung up. He watched as Loqi walked over and towered above him with a smirk on his face.
“Who were you talking to, Loser? Your mother? Are you trying to get her to take you home?” He snickered.
Prompto did nothing but let him throw his insults at him. Loqi then raised his fist, ready to punch the living daylight out of Prompto. But just like with what happened with Noctis, the tingling at the base of his skull returned, time slowed down, and Prompto dodged Loqi’s punch before he could even process it. Loqi’s fist slammed into the locker with a loud bang and all noise in the hallway ceased to exist as all eyes were now on them.
“OW!” Loqi screamed, proceeding to turn to Prompto with anger in his eyes. “YOU’RE DEAD, FREAK!”
He threw another punch and Prompto dodged with ease. He threw another, Prompto dodged again. Every punch he threw Prompto would dodge like it was nothing. Soon he was backed against a wall and Loqi chuckled, hurling his fist back to throw the next punch as a crowd of chanting teenagers formed around them. But right as he threw it, Prompto jumped off from the wall and did a front flip over Loqi, landing perfectly on his feet behind him as he punched the wall and broke his hand. Prompto turned just as he felt the tingling sensation grow stronger. He caught Loqi’s other fist just inches of it colliding with his face. Loqi tried to move it but Prompto seemed to have superhuman strength, as Loqi’s fist was trapped in his grasp. The chanting turned into gasps as Prompto threw Loqi over his shoulder, slamming him onto the hallway tile.
Prompto took this as his chance to run. So he did. He ran out of the hallway and stopped once he reached the middle of the courtyard. He noticed that he wasn’t out of breath, so that confirmed his superhuman stamina. And that little stunt that happened back there confirmed his superhuman strength and superhuman reflexes. But what was that tingling sensation at the base of his skull that he got every time someone went to lay a hand on him? If it was a newfound power, then he better name it. ‘Spider-Sense’ will do the trick.
“CURSE THE SIX!” Ardyn screamed as he knocked over numerous vials of chemicals on his lab table.
He looked into a mirror on his wall and growled once he gazed into his own amber eyes. He hurled his fist back and punched the mirror, shattering it into pieces.
“You couldn’t even impress Sylvia Nox Fleuret with your chemical invention. No. Instead it had to BLOW UP IN YOUR FACE!” He continued.
A ding coming from a nearby machine was heard. He walked over to it and open the small hatch, smoke pouring out from it. He smirked and chuckled to himself as he pulled out a small device shaped like a pumpkin with a standard Jack O’ Lantern carving.
“They’ll see. They’ll all see. No one will be able to surpass my beloved invention. Especially my Pumpkin Bombs,” he spoke.
He turned to a glass case and gazed at the suit inside. It was purple and green with the purple consisting of a tunic, gloves, and boots as the green consisted of metal sleeves and pants. The most notable portion of the suit was the mask. It too was green and purple, but the green resembled that of a hideous mythical goblin while the purple was a standard elf hat. Below was metal glider colored a dark silver and a brown satchel just waiting to be filled with evil inventions.
Ardyn laughed once more. “Green Goblin will be unstoppable.”
Pidge, my dude, do you prefer indie games like FNAF and Slender or first person shooting games like CoD and Overwatch? You don't seem like the Minecraft type but Minecraft is bomb too.
Pidge: I don’t really have a preferred type of game, it’s just if I like it then I’ll play it, y’know? Generally though I do tend to prefer games with a strong overarching story than just shooty ones, like I’ll take Legend of Zelda over Call of Duty any day. I had a solid Minecraft phase a few years back, cause like who didn’t, amiright? But now I’m currently into Overwatch and Dream Daddy Simulator (im so sorry shiro)
So I have been tolerating my parents since post- surgery because it was supposed to be a very brief stay as I couldn’t lift heavy things. Since getting a job, they have continued to be more manipulative and emotionally destructive, to the point where my mother about an hour ago threatened to call the police on me, after I explained I was unwilling to talk about why I was upset with her, when I moved back to the condo I rent from them on Friday. After calling me an ungrateful child and entitled for sitting on “her couch in her house,” I bit the bullet brought enough food for my perfect spawnling over here to last us a few days until I figure out a plan of action. I am fortunate he has remained blissfully unaware of the situation.
So, for at least the next few days, I am without a charger, computer, funds, or other such things. I’ve got 15% left on my phone. I forgot to grab a charger. D'oh!
Anyhow, I apologize but this is likely the last peep I can make for at least several days. All will work out somehow, so long as I can figure out groceries and gas until my paychecks get padded from actual work!
Hey friends. I haven’t been around much. I was at the Portland Zine Symposium all weekend and I’m still recovering from sitting in a room full of people all day for two days, then getting back to the shop and trying to make everything work again. ugh. I see a light at the end, but I’m really tired. There’s some interesting asks in my box that I’m answer when I have some brainspace. I blame @witchbrarian for getting me drunk on Saturday for part of the brain mush this weekend, but it was worth it to smoke cloves and act like kids before my second day in a room full of people. Tomorrow I get to see Cayetana with @lemonbalmgirl some of their songs have been on repeat ion my brain for a few months now.
It was Aly’s day today. I couldn’t be falling apart this much. I walked downstairs and hesitated, I don’t know why I did it, but I stepped out into the frosty September air. I took a large breath in, expecting the frost to clear my lungs and maybe my mind along with it. Nothing ever soothed my pain, the wound felt almost as fresh as that morning on November 1st. I made my way back inside. I didn’t want the neighbors telling Aly things. She cared way too much about how we presented ourselves to everyone. I gently shut the door and rested my forehead on it. I felt the tears building up because I knew October was a few days away, and that meant my sadness was also a few days from coming round to meet me. Not that it ever really left, it was always in the back of my mind, but during October it hit me the hardest.
G'day, Evie! Just a question: Have you moved here (Australia) to turn over a new leaf, or did you just decided to move here permamently.
Ehhh… I was forced to move back here.
My family and are Australians, but because of my parents work, we moved round a lot. And in our last few years being in the UK, we were forced to sell our house as the bank fudged us over. So we didn’t have much choice.
My parents always wanted to come back and live here permanently. Personally, I don’t know what I’m doing.
I want to move back to the uk, but I won’t be doing that anytime soon because of university and my family.
Honestly if I could leave today I would, but it’s not possible right now.. :/
"holy fuck — that thing still isn’t fixed?” tobias was groaning from the moment that he had stepped back into the apartment, a wave of heath hitting him directly in the face. the air conditioning unit - that same one that had been broken for a few days - was doing nothing but collecting dust inside the window sill it sat upon. the landlord had made promises, left them broken, and left the tenants to form different ways on staying cool. “i’m going to hound that asshole down.” tobias shook his head in frustration as he placed the grocery bag from his corner store trip on top of the kitchen counter, soon reeling out two pints of ice cream from inside it. “alright, who wanted cookie dough and who wanted strawberry?”
