winter is coming again i can feel it

Snow Spirit

It has been warm and dry winter here in Colorado, and despite the sunny weather being a sort of balm for my seasonal depression, I find myself wistful for the crisp calm of freshly fallen snow.  That silent sparkling landscape, the normal sounds of life muffled by the sleepy chilling blanket that covers the land.  If you’re up early enough, all you can hear is your crunching foot falls and the occasional flutter and quick chirp of a chickadee or two.  It’s possible sometimes to come upon other animals moving in the snow.  Maybe an outdoor cat, a fox, or a group of deer.  In weather like that, sometimes I feel like I will turn the corner and come upon my long gone friend, and he will lead me into the frosted wilds where we can play and forget about time. 

Wolfy will always be the spirit of snow to me.  I hope it will snow again soon, so I can be reminded of his boundless winter joy.

BTS reaction to their gf nuzzling them when she‘s cold

anon: How would bts members react to their girlfriend randomly nuzzling her face into his neck because she is cold

It’s sooo cute *-* Omg.. I’ll do it to my bf often if I get one ;; >

“You’re cold Y/N? Me too. So RUN TO HOME! Or we will freeze. I was scared that you will want to walking like this for more time”

Cold winter night. You and Yoongi were on a walk because why not? But it was only your mind. Suga wanted to go back and take rest after tiring day at work. So when you nuzzled his neck he take it sign to back from this walk.

“Babe. You look really cute but we should go back or you will get cold and I’ll be sleppy tomorrow”

Hobi know that even -0,5 °C  can make you feeling cold because you are chilly person.He would think that’s the cutest thing on the world. When you start nuzzling him he would laught and hug you tight.

“owhhh. My poor Y/N is cold again. Come here babygirl. I’ll show you how sun of Bangtan can warm up our baby.”

You hated winter. It’s cold, snowing and again cold in this season. Namjoon knew about it so he make sure that you’re always dressed heat. But if you will looking for some warm in his neck he will take off his scarf and wrapped you with it.

“Ehhh. How many times I have to tell you to dress better for this kind of weather? ehh. My lovely Y/N”

Jiminnie feeling your cold nose on his neck can get worried that you will get cold and feel sick. He would make sure that you feel warm. Taking your hands and blow on them with his warm breath, lookind deeply in your eyes.

“I don’t want you to get sick. But I love how you are nuzzling and you can make it more often babe”

Tbh I feel that he would do this more often then you. He just love to hug you, cuddle with you and just feel your smell(?) and JUST YOU. But if you will be cold and poke his neck he would look at you, give you a big kiss and hug you till you can’t take a breath. Happy Tae is sweet boyfriend.

“I’ll give you a kiss and when we’ll be at home I’ll cuddle you for all day long!”

Freezing. It was what you feel at this time. You was on shooting for new Mv of your bf group. At gut level you started to looking for Jungkook to warm you up. And there he’s~ alone so it’s perfect time. You hug back him and put your face near to his neck. He was surprised and decided to make some jokes. He push you away and say “Girll.. You’re too cold. I’ll get sick. Go away”. You were in shook and don’t know why you wanted to cry. But then he come closer and said that it was just a joke and he doesn’t want to hurt you.

“Come jagii~ Don’t cry. This jacket is enough for two people”

Make the First Swing Count

Joy hefted her father’s axe, swung it in a wide arc over her shoulder and buried it in the maple log. The papery fibers creaked and took the axe in almost completely. She tapped the head with a ball peen hammer, and the log fell apart.

“C’mon now,” her father said. “You shouldn’t need a crutch. Make the first swing count.”

Joy bent to pick up another log and her father cuffed her on the back of the head. She bit her lower lip, eyes watering, and put the log on the stump. Her fingers were numb from the cold.

“Make the first swing count, dammit,” he said. “Unless you want to freeze to death this winter.”

Joy wrapped her numb fingers around the axe handle, pulled it behind her shoulder and struck.

Her father yelped, and the log fell apart.

“There we go!” he said. “One fell swoop. Keep her shoulders firm but your arms loose. That’s my girl.”

Her father took a rag out of his pocket and put it to his face. The stink of starter fluid made Joy’s nose tingle. Her father took two deep breaths and put the rag away.

“All right,” he said. “Couple hundred more swings like that and you can call it a day. Want a puff off the rag?”

Joy shook her head.

“You’ll be fine out here,” said her father. “You’re too far north for them to bother you. And if any of them do make it this far up, you have the Mossberg. Use the MREs to get through the winter, and then put in a garden in the spring. The lake’s only a few hundred yards away, so water will never be an issue. You can fish, and I left you my traps.”

Joy’s knew there were tears running down her face, but she couldn’t feel them on her numb cheeks.

“Hey now – this has to be done. I got tagged when we went through Chicago. I can already feel the change coming. Let’s get this done before you get too tired. You still have a lot of chopping to do.”

Joy’s father again produced the rag. He took four or five ragged breaths, knelt in the mud, and laid his head on the stump.

“I love you,” he said. “Please. Make the first swing count.”

Joy picked up the axe and swallowed the hard ball of snot building in her throat. She pulled the axe to her shoulder.

“That’s my girl,” her father said.

Seven strategies against the coming of Winter

1. Hibernation. That is to say: Dear Winter, I am sorry to have to decline your invitation, but my duvet has caught a chill and I do not wish to abandon it in its time of need. Be sure that I will consider you fondly in my dreams, and dedicate every second cup of tea to your continued absence from my dwelling-place. Yours sincerely, me.

2. Migration. That is to say: Dear Winter, I will attend to your missive once I am back from my annual leave in a place that is a long way away from you. I should be back by May or so. You will still be around then, right? Any particularly urgent enquiries should be addressed to the bin.

3. Denial. That is to say: Dear Summer, I am so glad that you have decided to stay this year. I am delighted at the opportunity to celebrate Christmas with you. And if you should ever feel a little cold or damp or dark I will not hold it against you, seeing as how you were always my favourite season; true friends being also friends when they are at their worst as well as their best.

4. Anger. That is to say: Dear Winter, fuck off. Yours sincerely. Me.

5. Bargaining. That is to say: Dear Winter, you can have the mountains if I can have the valley. I suggest we share custody of the pass; I would like to use it at least every other weekend. You can have the wolves but I will be holding you responsible for their behaviour. I will expect you to be absent from the seaside when I visit in January. Many thanks, me.

6. Acceptance. That is to say: Dear Winter, I have accepted your booking. Please try to leave the area as you found it. Towels should go on the rack after you have used them and let us know if you freeze the plug in the sink again so we can get someone in to deal with it.

7. Love. That is to say: Dear Winter, I love you. You with your pale-gold sunlight and your glittering ice and the sudden shock at feeling you as I step outside; you with all your quietness and cruelty; you with your power to transform the world; you, you, you. And now I hear that you are coming back! Let me know of your arrival. I long for the wind from the North. In anticipation, me.

Bts Reaction to Their S/o Having Bad Anxiety!

Mummy Seokjin would strike again with his protective caring nature, making sure to be prepared to help you if you ever started to feel anxious. He would be the type to help you breath by counting with you.

“It is going to be fine y/n. Just breathe with me okay? I promise you will start to feel better soon if you just breathe”

“In 1,2,3…

Originally posted by yoongichii

Yoongi would be surprisingly calm while comforting you; he would hold you close, stroking your arm in a rhythm so you can try and breathe to it. he would whisper in your ear some calming lyrics from Bts songs to keep your mind off of it.

“Passing by the end of a cold winter, until the spring day comes again. Until flowers bloom, please stay at that place for a bit longer, please stay there.”

Originally posted by jeonbase

Hoseok would panic every time he had to help you; he would be good at it but cry every time. He would hold your cheeks in the palms of his hands, stroking your temples with his fingertips and making you stare straight into his eyes.

“Just focus on me y/n. You will get through this, we will get through this. You have me and I will always help you.”

Originally posted by myloveseokjin

Research. Namjoon would do a bunch of research on ways of how to calm you down so he would be calm and collected. He would sit you on his lap face to face and us all of the techniques that he saw online, breath tracking, distractions, safe place. He would be really helpful.

“Baby, think of your safe place. Our room at home, cuddled in all the blankets watching dramas and cuddling.”

Originally posted by daeguboy

Poor Jimin would panic and not know what to do at all. He wouldn’t cry like he felt like doing because he wanted to be strong for you so he would just hug you close, stroking your head and whispering how much he loved you into your hair because he didn’t know what else to do.

“How do you still look so beautiful when you cry? I love you so much.”

“You’re strong and you’ll get through this.”

Originally posted by harunyany

Taehyung would suddenly become super serious when he realised you were getting anxious. He would try to distract you by humming and talking about your future together once you’re married and how you will live happily ever after while holding you close but leaving you an appropriate amount of space.

“And we’ll have a dog… maybe 4, one for each kid? it would be so cute, don’t you think so y/n?”

Originally posted by averageoppa

When Jungkook would get a little anxious or upset because of work you would hold him into your chest while he cried and sing to him quietly, even though you didn’t have the best voice it would make him feel better. That was why when he saw you that was the first thing he thought he could do to help you.

“If only I had just one day, I want to peacefully fall asleep intoxicated with your sweet scent”

jeonkookiex  asked:

hello !! i'm here to confess my love for you and also request a ravi au !! i need inspiration for something and i've been thinking of using ravi for it bc he is a beautiful man so if you could write me a little something w him being idk a werewolf or a vampire or a warlock or idk anything mystical ?? i love you ???

hi yes i can please take this werewolf!ravi au

  • if there’s one thing that is really great about being a werewolf, it’s body temperature 
  • ravi literally nEVER gets cold, and the people who hug him or stand next to him can feel the heat radiating off of him. he’s like a big warm blanket
  • this is incredibly useful in the winter,,,,,,but when summer comes around - it,,,,it’s dreadful
  • because ravi, at any given moment, feels like he’s wearing too much in his human form and when he transforms all his fur is just like a big big winter coat
  • so what he usually does is finds some big supermarket with the ac on blast to loiter in to cool off and you,,,,,,,you work the freezer aisle so you see ravi like everyday
  • like,,,,,,,, of the summer 
  • and you’re not sure if he really just keeps buying those microwavable dinners or something,,,but you don’t mind because he’s tall, cute, and his tank top is cut in all the right places that even in the cold store - you still can’t help but blush
  • and one day,,,ravi notices you,,,stacking boxes onto the top shelf of one of the freezers
  • and he sees you struggling just a bit to reach so he goes over,,,,and asks if you need help
  • shocked,,,,,because customers almost never offer to help workers,,,,you stammer out that it’s fine it’s nothing
  • and as you reach for the next box, so does ravi, and upon touching him ravi realizes - your hands,,,,,,,,they’re cold
  • “sorry! they’re always kind of cold, even when im outside !! it’s just ,,, it’s just something my body does”
  • you laugh it off awkwardly, hoping he doesn’t think you’re a vampire or something
  • but ravi,,,,,,ravi just looks at you and reaches out again,,,taking your hand in his and bringing it up to his face
  • and you’re like ?@?@??? is???? is everything ok
  • and he’s like “your cold hands,,,,they feel nice,,,,,,”
  • you feel your cheeks heat up and you don’t notice that ravi’s own skin is unusually warm for someone who stands in the freezer aisle for an hour but you’re like ah,,,,,i ,,, mean,,,,thank you?!?!
  • ravi keeps your hand there for a bit till he lets you go and gives you an embarrassed apology but you tell him it’s fine - you just - people usually don’t like you touching them because you’re cold
  • but ravi shakes his head and he’s like “believe me, i like it.”
  • this continues throughout the summer,,,,when ravi sees you he keeps asking if you can touch his face or hold his hand and he always seems to be so embarrassed by asking 
  • but at the same time,,,,,,,he’s so sweet you can’t say no?????
  • but also like what does this mean- are you his human icepack??? what is going on
  • and only when the season change back into chilly fall and the heating still hasn’t kicked in at the store ravi shows up and for the first time you’re the one needing him
  • “you’re always so warm,,,,can you just,,,,hold my face for a second”
  • ravi blushes but reaches out and ,,,,,,, as expected his hands are a perfect toasty temperature
  • and you’re like “ah,,,thank you - how are you always so warm?”
  • “im a werewolf”
  • your eyes widen and you’re like “wh-what”
  • ravi laughs and he’s like “im not joking,,,,,im a werewolf.”
  • he smiles again and you notice the sharp teeth, the way his brown eyes flicker into yellow around the pupils
  • and you’re like holy shit- no way
  • ravi shrugs and is like “wait let me just-” he shakes his head a bit and when he stops two large ears poke out from his hair, his sideburns getting a little longer and nails on his hand growing
  • you stand there in the freezer aisle - shocked - and he shrugs a little and is like “werewolves all have high body temperature which is why i came here so much in the summer.”
  • you blink  and then go “oh, here i thought you were coming for me,,,,,,”
  • you giggle and say it’s just a joke but ravi scratches behind his neck and goes “well,,,,,,,that was part of it too,,,,,,,”
  • but then he shakes his head again, returning to his human form completely and going “but who’d like a werewolf - right?”
  • you look back and forth and you’re like “uh, me. i like a werewolf. especially since you’re so warm and winter is coming up.”
  • ravi perks up,,,,mouth opening in happiness like a puppy and he’s like “r-really?”
  • and you’re like “yeah!! you can be my werewolf heat pack and ill be your,,,,,,human ice pack in the summer :-)”
  • ravi grins,,,,reaching out to take your hand again, the warm feeling rising from your fingers to your chest
  • “id like that,,,,,,,,,,,,wanna see my full form sometime?”
  • “is it cuddly”
  • “well,,,im basically a big dog so-”
  • “id love to.”

Request:  Can I write an imagine we’re you are best friends with stiles. And the night of the dance your date runs off with some of his friends completely ignoring you.

USUK Christmas Countdown 2017: December 23 #2

Title: American Winter
Day 11: Warmth
Summary: Arthur is travelling from visiting friends in New York City to visiting family in Canada for the holidays. However, he finds himself in a broken-down rental car in a snowstorm in Upstate New York. Prepared to spend the night huddled up in his car, he’s invited to stay with a stranger instead.
Rating: T
Warning: It gets a little bit drabble-y in some places.

(Written by: @yesterdarling and Art by: @pyocchan)

Arthur shouldn’t have been surprised when the engine began to putter out. He shouldn’t have ignored the sputtering when he had started the car earlier. He shouldn’t have driven when he knew the forecast, or even just driven past the last town, or a million other things. It probably would’ve kept him from having to spend half an hour in the snow, making slow progress at shoving the damned thing off the road.

Grumbling to himself, he brushed the falling snow out of his hair, hitting his shoes against the side of the car before climbing back in. Even after bundling himself in practically every jumper he had brought, the frigid temperatures still kept him shivering. God, did he hate American winters.

Creepypasta #1125: 40 Acres Of Woods

Length: Short

I’ve lived in the woods my whole life. 40 acres of property, my family house far back from the road. The very definition of seclusion. The only visitors we ever get are the ones we plan on. Nobody has any reason to come down here. In fact, most never even see our driveway from the road.

Basically, I’ve lived a peaceful life here. A small town, everybody knows everybody else, no crime. A town of unlocked doors, that kind of small town. Of course, however, being in the woods meant we did a lot of hunting. Rather, my mom’s boyfriend is the one who did (and still does) all of the hunting. Because of this, we have cameras set up all throughout the woods so he can see if there’s deer or other wild animals out and about. For years all we did see was wild animals.

Then, a year or so, we caught a strange shape on the cameras. Ron called us all over to see if we could figure out what it was. The lens must have been dirty or something, because the picture was really blurry. All I could make out was a vague, tall, dark shape. Ron thought it looked like a bear on its hind legs. My mom, always the paranoid one, immediately started freaking out and saying it was a man, that was a man.

Of course, Ron and I laughed her off. This camera had been way back deep in the woods, on OUR property, there was no way anybody could be back there. Plus, it was freezing cold out (winter in Michigan). Who the hell would be outside, in the dark, in WINTER? After a bit more joking, my mom finally sighed and accepted she may be a bit paranoid. We all agreed she was, as the cameras came up with only wild animals. Peaceful again.

But of course, you’re reading this. Something happened. About a month later, a man started knocking on our door. Now, to get to our house, in winter, you have to hike down an ice covered driveway. You have to WANT to get to our house. Nobody ever comes door knocking to us.

And yet. Against my mom’s wishes, and all logical thinking, Ron opened the door to reveal a man. He looked rough. Poor. To add to that, he was asking for money. At 9pm, in the freezing cold weather, this man knocked on our door to ask for money. We didn’t give him any, closed the door, and watched him walk away. We were all a bit put off. It’s 9 o'clock, there’s snow, freezing winds and ice. Not exactly weather to go door to door in.

Which brings me to a week after that. On our 40 acres of property, we have many deer blinds and hunting stands, which are only ever checked during season. Well, Ron and I went out to check them. Deep back in the woods, checking the last deer blind, we saw it. The busted off lock. I looked at Ron, but his gaze was focused on the lock. Time seemed to slow as he reached forward and lifted off the lock, opened the latch, and let the door open. He shined a flashlight inside.

The light revealed a dirty mattress, several blankets (again, winter), and crumpled food wrappers along with empty cans. It smelled atrocious inside, and if I wasn’t so used to the smells that you come across finding dead animals, I feel it would have been worse. He swung the flashlight to look at the walls, which had a few dusty pictures on them. The hair on the back of my neck stood up. I grabbed Ron’s arm and told him we needed to go. Now.

We latched the door again, and hiked back to the house. Ron called the police, while I walked around the house on a sudden feeling. We had gotten a fresh layer of snow recently. Nobody in my family had recently walked round back of the house, but the snow had footprints in it. Bootprints to be exact, bigger than anyone of us that live here.

He’d been here. Outside of our house for god knows how long. It’s what they don’t tell you about living on a large property. Sure, you get seclusion and privacy, but you can’t keep an eye on everything. You can’t watch every corner. But when the police came back later saying that it seemed the man had fled, you realize. Just because you can’t see them doesn’t mean they can’t see you.

heatherlanntheclever  asked:

Is there any chance of a happy ending for the Lannisters? I know they are awful people but why develop their motivations and give each of them a genuine moment of compassion if they are just going to murder each other? Every other POV gets a moment of truth/redemption why not the children of Tywin/Patriarchy/Aerys and Disability? I'm a bad person myself so I need to believe the Lions can defy themselves and prophesy and overcome their nature or what's the point? Not all of us are born Starks.

Hey! So it’s gonna take me a few minutes to answer your question, but I promise I’m gonna get there.

In one of the other shows I watch, an actor commented on the banality of evil. He said that evil is something commonplace. Given the right circumstances, great acts of evil could be committed by your neighbors, or your friends, or you, or me. Because evil is so easy. “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” You needn’t be a monster like Gregor to commit evil; you need only be human.

Brie and I went to a tall grass prairie today! I used to pass by places like these and see nothing but dead, dry grasses (potential swords for games with my siblings); now I see vestiges waiting to be identified!

As a word alone, vestige means “a trace of something that is disappearing or no longer exists.” A vestige in this context is what’s left of a plant in the winter! If you get up close, you can actually use this handy little guide to start identifying the plants and figure out what they’ll look like once the growing seasons comes around again! It’s difficult to imagine, but prairies like this one can grow well above your head every year, and going through them is like being in a faerie tale land!

It can be tricky to figure out at first, but once you get the hang of it, the guide feels like a little puzzle you get to solve! I always feel super accomplished whenever I identify something!
