wire bundles

some stupidly fluffy dratchet headcanons
  • Drift’s little dorsal fins flutter when he’s excited. Ratchet likes to touch them, stroke them, and kiss them. They’re not very sensitive on the surface, but underneath the plates– where wires and nerve bundles are protected by the fins– they are extremely pleasurable for them to be stroked. Drift will happily sit and let Ratchet play with them, letting them shift and shudder when Ratchet hits a good spot.

  • Drift is extremely touchy-feely, and this has been amplified after he spent so much time away from anyone he’s ever cared about. After reuniting with Ratchet, Drift spends their downtime just feeling Ratchet’s frame while Ratchet does something else, like reading (or repairing Drift…) Ratchet used to find it strange and perhaps annoying to have someone constantly touching him, but he’s grown accustomed to Drift’s nature and want to touch and he lets him do his thing. Ratchet had learned to find it pleasurable, and thought that Drift’s total focus on his frame was kind of cute and totally hot.

  • Ratchet’s chevron, much like Drift’s finials, is sensitive as hell. If Ratchet is ever feeling upset or anxious or bothered, Drift will drag him onto the berth with him and stroke that chevron gently to calm him down. He also whispers words of comfort against Ratchet’s helm. He tells him that he’s “done enough, and now it’s his turn to be cared for,” and that he “is far away from anyone who can hurt you,” and how much Drift loves him and appreciates their time together. It works wonders. Ratchet finds the gesture extremely comforting, the words even more so.
A Break in Routine Part 3

Kylo Ren x Reader

A/N: I’m not too happy with this part, but it leads up to the next part well. And the next part, based off what I’ve outlined, is really awesome. In my opinion, of course.

“What are you doing?”

You jumped, the back of your head colliding against the wall with a painful thud. A small groan left your parted lips, your hand rubbing the area you’d just hit. You managed to send a weak smile towards the man who’d popped out of nowhere.

“Hi, Matt.” You acknowledged, blinking a few times to clear out your vision.

“What are you doing?” He repeated, staring at the small device you’d been bent over.

The afternoon began with wild collecting for my besom.

After soaking the bristles to make it easier to tie them in a bundle, it was time to assemble them.

Plastic ties made the job relatively easy. I then wound wire in between the gaps beside the ties, tucking the ends of the wire into the bundle. Then I cut the ties carefully away so as not to cut the bristles. Finally, I wet some twine and tied that around the bundle, evenly spaced. I found a branch already cut and whittled at the ends in the woods by the river, it was as if someone had played around and fashioned a sort of spear with it and then just left it there!  It made for the perfect handle for my besom. Jammed that handle in the middle of the bundle hard, and that sucker isn’t going anywhere!

I put blue ribbon over the wire to make it look pretty (I think my Goddess likes blue, as it comes up a lot in different things lately) also, dammit, if I am going to own a besom, it is going to look pretty because I deserve it! Cost of my besom? $4.00 for plastic ties and ribbon from the dollar store, that’s it! And of course, the time that it took to gather the bundle from the wild, and search for a handle, all in all it took roughly 2 hours. Not too shabby, if I say so myself. 

Now I just have to cleanse the besom (with some sandalwood incense) and ask the God and Goddess to bless it. 

I feel it’s relevant for Wiccans and Witches to know you CAN make your own broom at home with just a few things collected from nature. No, you don’t have to be very good at putting craft projects together, and this honestly was very easy to assemble.

It really bothers me when I hear of others involved in the craft who have literally spent a couple hundred bucks easy on a besom/broom they bought online. Unless you WANT to spend that money because it saves time, etc., fine. But otherwise, I feel you are being taken advantage of because no one has told you the steps to make your own.

You will need:

  • Twigs, straw, whatever for the bristles
  • Long plastic ties
  • A small hand saw, or as in my case I used a bread knife to cut the grassy-like straw
  • Craft wire
  • Scissors or garden clippers to cut straw/twigs
  • Branch for the handle
  • Blade to whittle point in the branch
  • Twine
  • Ribbon

If you have ANY questions, please message me. It must be mentioned, this was the first broom I’ve ever put together, so if I can do it, you can too.

~Blessed be.

Class discussion - abortion.
  • Teacher: I'm against abortion because you're killing a soul, you're killing a human being
  • Me: I'm not with or against abortion, i'm pro-choice. if the woman wants to keep the fetus or abort it, it's her choice
  • Student: ABORT IT?? it's a soul from god, you're killing a human, it's basically murder
  • Me: it's her body therefore it's her choice
  • Teacher: NO that's not right, you might kill someone who will make our world a better place
  • Me: if a fetus is a baby, then a bundle of wires is a laptop. The potential to become does not equate to that which actually is.
