Planets in Retrograde

What impact do they have in our natal chart?

It isn’t unusual for a person to have at least one retrograde planet in their chart.

Planets in retrograde are usually compared to a mirror. Their energy is reflected right back at us, interiorized and expressed backwards. Having a planet in retrograde forces you dive deeper into it’s energy while being slightly fearful of it at the same time. Making it a constant struggle between acting or giving in to the fear.

For example, people with Jupiter in retrograde are fearful of expansion and taking risks, so instead, they retreat into their minds, expanding themselves in a mental and spiritual level.

Whenever you are about to express the energies of the planet, you refrain yourself, many times not doing it, whether it is out of fear or just the sensation of just not being able to do it. For example, if your mars is retrograde, you hesitate before expressing anger and assertion, usually ending up in an outburst after containing yourself for a certain amount of time.

Also, many times when a planet is in retrograde, it’s because things done to you as a child. For example, a person with mercury retrograde may have been told they weren’t smart enough, or forced to think in a certain way, paying no attention to what their true opinions may have been.

Do they affect aspects?

Yeah, in some way they do since the planet’s energy is redirected, causes confusion and changes the way aspects are expressed.

For example: saturn in a challenging aspect to mars (conjunction, square, opposition) makes people be (or believe to be) usually critiziced on everything they do, but when saturn is in retrograde, it might change it in the sense that they aren’t critiziced constantly by others but by themselves. It makes very self critical and perfectionist people and in the worst case scenario they can become unsatisfied with everything they do.

Are they karmic?

Yup. They tend to emphasize the lessons we didn’t learn in past lives and force us to focus on them by making them more reflexive. Some people carry past lives memories from the planets they have retrograde in their charts.

Retrograde Individuals

What makes a retrograde individual?

1. 3 or more retrogrades on the natal chart

2. Any personal planet in retrograde

3. One or more retrograde planets near the ascendant (1st house) or midheaven (10th house)

How does it affect the native?

It makes very introspective people, natives may be thinkers more than a doers. It’s good because they are very cautious and don’t rush into things, but can also lose some great oportunities and be prone to overthinking.

They may be very melancholic, since they are usually reminiscing the past.

Retrograde Planets

Mercury: this natives may fear telling people what they think, or even speaking at all! They have a very unique way of seeing things, and are very innovative. If you have this, you probably give a lot of thought to the most mundane tasks and may have a very quick wit, even if they don’t say anything. If it’s afflicted, you may have had problems speaking, like a lisp, for example.

Art is a great outlet for mercury retrograde people.

Venus: expressing love is hard for them, they hesitate to the point of overthinking before showing affection and there may be an inner desire and fear of commitment. Their minds are constantly imagining and creating (even if subconsciously) but they can’t take it to paper. They may feel they weren’t loved as children or that they were rejected when they tried to be affectionate.

This natives love very deeply, but they internalize it, originating a lot of pain.

Mars: they have a very hard time expressing their anger, or even repress it to the point of exploding. Having low energy is very common with this planet in retrograde, as well as a lack of ambition or drive to get what they want. Sex may have been taboo as children, leading to a strong difficulty to express a healthy sexuality. People with this need to be attentive not to forget to take care of their bodies. There’s a tendency to blow things out of proportion.

They may have grown up in a household where anger wasn’t well taken or were taught to be very pássive.

Jupiter: very philosophical and prone to procastinating, they keep thinking and planning but their intentions never come to shore. Optimism and beliefs are hard for them to express, and there’s a constant confusion with faith. They may have been disappointed by religion from a very young age, leading to resent and holding grudges towards God/church/etc.  

There is a discontent with life that’s held in the subconscious. Having this planet in retrograde is a great opportunity to expand spiritually.

Saturn: these people feel very limited and disapponted on life, there’s a constant sensation of  being trapped and just like with mars, lack ambition. They are very controlled, to the point of self-destruction, and can have a very bad image of themselves. Natives are talented and like creating things from scratch.

It makes serious and responsible people. Anything that requires self-discipline and patience is a good activity for saturn retrograde.

Uranus: natives have a tough time showing their weird side to the world, but feel somehow alienated from everyone else. They may dislike being around crowds and somehow desire to be unique, as paradoxical as it may be. It’s common to lack individuality and be influentiable by others. There’s a need to be original and experience new things, and they seek it in an unconventional manner, to the point of being chaotic in the old uranian fashion. Uranus retrograde has an internal despise towards societal norms. 

As a child you could have been made believe that you were strange in a bad way, prompting you to try to be as common as possible.

Neptune: having this planet in retrograde makes very intuitive and spiritual people, that are in touch with their inner selves.  It leads them to dissociate from reality and can even take them to the point of delusion. They bury their dreams deep within themselves, and rarely share them with anyone, maybe their parents dissed out their dreams since they were little, making them believe they were impossible to achieve. 

Daydreaming is a common thing among this people, and even with their great creativity, is very difficult for them to express it. 

Pluto: this is a very strong retrograde, it gives a great desire for control, as well as deeply kept secrets. Natives have learned since a very young age not to trust anyone, and carry that paranoia and suspicion everywhere they go, making them really good at seeing through people’s lies. They experiment a constant transformation of the inner self, becoming who they need to be in order to survive. Great resilience. May use sexuality as a weapon and love power games.  

Prone to psychic abilities.

Hey guys, hope this helped u understand retrograde planets a little more! It’s a pretty complicated theme, but I like it very much.

Can I ask why everyone thinks that Azula is Zuko’s little sister?

Because unless it was stated somewhere that Azula is 14 in the show, I’m kind of leaning towards her being older than Zuko. And I do actually have a few reasons for thinking this. 

1. It was stated by Ozai in the episode Zuko Alone that Azula was named after her grandfather Azulon

And usually, it is the first born child that is named after a grandparent or parent. And if Zuko was the first born why wouldn’t he be named Azulon? (And I know some of you are thinking, uh duh, because Ozai hated Zuko) But Zuko would have been a newborn baby, there was no way for Ozai to know he would dislike Zuko and thus save the name for his second child. That doesn’t make sense.

2. Now, this might seem off point but stay with me here. So you guys remember Tom-Tom? 

Yeah, Mai’s little brother. We know that he is 2 years old, and then later in the show, it is said that Mai is fifteen years older than her brother. Making Mai 17. And I just always assumed that Azula would be around her friend’s age. She is the same size and looks no younger than Mai. 

Of course, that is more my opinion than fact, but I still feel that Azula would be close to Mai’s age. And she can’t be sixteen because we all know that Zuko is sixteen, so unless they are twins, that can’t be. 

And we do in fact know that Zuko is sixteen because even though that was never said outright, when Zuko confronted his father he said “My father, who challenged me a thirteen-year-old boy, to an Agni Kai,”

 And in the first season, while yelling at Zhao, Zuko says, “I’ve been searching for the Avatar for three years now,” 

Proving to us that Zuko is sixteen. Meaning that if Azula is older she would have to be at least 17 if not older. 

3. Now, this is more my opinion again. But throughout the whole show Azula refers to Zuko as ‘Zuzu’, and I feel like that is something an older sibling would do rather than a younger. 

Of course, we’re talking about Azula here. So really she is probably doing this just to get under Zuko’s skin, and to make him feel inferior because we all know she is a huge manipulator. 

4. Okay, now this is the one that always had me thinking that Azula was the older sibling. So like I said before we know Zuko was 13 when his father burned and banished him. 

This is what Zuko looked like at thirteen. And he does look a lot younger. You can tell this was years ago. 

Now, look at Azula in the crowd watching. 

She looks almost the exact same. Zuko is clearly younger in this flashback, but Azula looks fully grown, and that was three years ago

And as a kid watching the show, that proved to me that she was the older sibling. And up until recently I still thought that. But now I am seeing all these posts about Azula being a 14yo. Which, is of course freakin awesome, because that means she was that cunning and evil at just 14

But it took away a lot of the aspects of her that made me really fear Azula as a character. 

As an older sibling myself, I found it really cruel and scary that Azula would hunt down and try to kill her little brother. (It is horrible whether she is younger or older) but it hit me harder thinking that she was going after a younger sibling rather than an older. 

If you are an older sibling than you know even if you don’t get along with your younger sibs, you still feel protective and want them to strive. And so the fact that Azula was always so cruel towards Zuko made her seem more evil to me. 

She also always knew how to manipulate and push Zuko’s buttons. And I always felt that for Zuko that would be a scary and uncomfortable thing to deal with. And if Azula is older, then there would be that want to impress her in some ways, and feeling less than her in other ways. Making him even easier to manipulate. 

And that was a main part of why I found Azula so evil. Because she should have felt protective towards her brother, but to her, everything was just striving towards power, it showed that she really didn’t have a lot of humanity in her. And I think that point was shown in her breakdown. 

And not only did this make Azula seem even crueler as a character to me. But it made Zuko’s choices more clear as well. 

If Azula is older, Zuko would still want to impress her. Just like he strived to impress his father. Maybe he didn’t want her love. But he would want her respect. And as a younger sibling, I can see him trying to also achieve this. He would feel that he had more to prove. 

And to me, this showed even more character in Zuko when he did leave everything behind. Because he knew that he would be leaving his sister and father behind (not that he cared about their love at this point) but I think that must have been a terrifying thing to do on his part. Because now he will be on the opposite side again. And even if Zuko didn’t think he would be facing his father again, I bet you he knew he would be facing his manipulative sister again.

And it would have been much easier for him to just leave it be, or to even just go hide somewhere where he wouldn’t be found. Because facing Azula again and again would be hard, especially when she knew right where to hit him to make it really hurt.   

And that is why the last Agni Kai felt like the final step for Zuko in redeeming himself. (At least for me) Because he was standing up to someone that must have been scary for him to face, he was putting it to an end, and it a way saying ‘I don’t need to bow down or be scared of you’, because at this point Azula probably didn’t seem as scary to Zuko as she had always seemed while growing up. 

So Azula being the the older sibling not only made her seem eviler, in my opinion, it made Zuko seem even braver. 

So unless proven otherwise, I think I’ll stick to my headcanons.

“ Okay I gotta admit, that’s not my finest work. But it’s 9am, sue me “

“ You should totally wear something hot just fyi “

“ I’m sure that’ll help him give you his ‘notes’ ;) ;) “

You can’t help but laugh at her early morning ramblings. How she managed to function in the mornings was still a mystery to you but you guessed it had something to do with an entire pot of coffee. Rolling out of bed, you send a response.

“ And why would I wear something hot? “

“ Also that last one doesn’t even make sense, what is wrong with you? “

But the thought began to look appealing. He’d shown no interest in you whatsoever yesterday. Yeah because he’s your professor, this isn’t some damn romcom you remind yourself. And yet… Here you were considering dressing up a bit as opposed to the usual “throw anything on” approach you had begun to take after being in university for so long.

Your phone chimes.

Oscar issac as uncle Ben, YES PLEASE! Also, peter's dad and uncle ben can be like half brothers

heck yeah, friend!! like idc how they make it work but with marisa being aunt may, oscar isaac is just the person i keep coming back to for mcu uncle ben. ben could be a little nerdy like peter and a little eccentric like may. he’s warm, handsome, and just radiates comfort. and he’s more similar to peter in the sense that he’s lame and sarcastic, but he still pairs really perfectly with may and they both share that quirky free spirit kinda vibe.

oscar isaac would make a great mcu uncle ben y'all, specifically with this look:

ramblingredrose  asked:

You should definitely meta about Tony and Wanda and how Tony's given way more leeway for what he's done as opposed to Wanda

Okay so. There is a huge disparity in the treatment of Wanda and Tony. Tony stans are virulent* in their defence of him, while Wanda stans, fans or her defence squad are pushed to defend her or point out the holes in other’s arguments - they’re pushed on the defensive from the start because Stark Stans love to focus on the fact that, as we are shown in the films “Wanda wrongs Tony first”.

*Yes, virulent. Like a virus. They’re awful and as far as I care, should be eradicated.

Yeah, right. Long before Wanda ever touched Tony Stark’s mind, Tony did something to her. Unintentionally. Unknowingly. Indeed, he may not have even been directly involved, it may have been Obadiah Stane’s fault, but, for narrative and thematic reasons, I think it would resonate more with Tony’s sense of guilt, blame and responsibility if it was in some way his fault. If Tony Stark had willingly sold weapons to NATO, who were involved in the Balkans unrest, or to the US government who later interfered in the unrest in the Balkans* - unknowingly making a situation worse with his weapons as Yinsen tells him. If it’s simply Obie’s fault, selling them behind his back, I think it removes a lot of the narrative impact from Tony’s shouldering the blame for his weapons - which he designed, which his company and people he trusted sold, which were then used in ways that hurt civilians, intentionally or not.

*You can read more about the Balkans conflicts after the dissolution of Yugoslavia over Here and Here. Many thanks to @tobermoriansass for helping me with this. Further reading [x] [x].

The fact of the matter is Tony Stark’s company - his company then, before he gave over power of it to Pepper - sold weapons that orphaned the twins. The twins, as ten-year-old children, hated the man who, as far as they knew, had orphaned them. Who had sold the weapons. Who had power and money and means and was praised - who, if he had sold weapons to NATO, for use in the Balkans conflict, may well have been praised for his part in such a so-called “peacekeeping” initiative - … and whose weapon had taunted them for two days in the rubble, as they waited above the bodies of their dead parents. To quote This truly fantastic meta by @eatingcroutons:

With all this going on, Maximoffs would have grown up knowing nothing but war, and with a deep-seated hatred of the foreign powers that had occupied and violated their homeland and people. Orphaned, desperate and powerless, it makes complete sense for them to jump at von Strucker’s offer to become something more. Like many of their compatriots, they volunteered for his experiments when he showed up with Loki’s staff in 2012.

The thing is, in explaining this, I’m not trying to justify Wanda’s actions to you. I’m sure there are many fans of Tony who’re going to insist that that’s exactly what I’m doing, but I’m not. This is simply an explanation of the upbringing and background - and ultimately trauma - that led to her decision. Just as Tony’s trauma has affected much of his behaviour to ultimately toxic ends.

[Source: Where’s The Alcohol?: Revisiting Tony Stark’s Glossed Over Alcoholism. The meta largely covers comics!Tony’s alcoholism, but I think the degree to which Tony drinks in the films, and his attitude towards alcohol, as well as his generally reckless behaviour, all speak to someone with some very unhealthy coping mechanisms]

So there’s that. Both of these characters have severe trauma and that affects not just how they see the world, but how they access and interact with the world. In simple terms, both characters have what amounts to excellent fic fodder! They’re both deeply fucked up with deep-seated issues, a desire to make amends for the wrongs they’ve done:

[Source: Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Battle of Novi Grad. Clint to Wanda, offering her a chance to make amends - which she takes]

TONY: I saw that I had become part of a system that is comfortable with zero accountability.

REPORTER: What happened over there?

TONY: I had my eyes opened. I came to realise that I have more to offer this world than just making things that blow up. And that is why, effective immediately, I am shutting down the weapons manufacture at Stark Industries … until such a time I can decide what the future of this company should be, what direction it should take, one that I am comfortable with and that is consistent with the highest good for this country as well.

[Source: Iron Man 1, Tony’s press conference on his return, shutting down Stark Industries’ weapons manufacture after seeing what it’s doing to people first hand]

So, if we’re getting into an argument of who hit who first, it was Tony. This is a farcial debate, because both characters seem able to move forwards from this, and grow up rather than clinging to it - Wanda sacrifices her vengeance to defeat Ultron and proceeds to do everything in her power to make amends afterwards, staying on as an Avenger while Tony has been actively making amends since, like Wanda, he was made aware of what his actions were actually doing. If we’re getting into an argument over who has learned, both of these characters have remarkably similar arcs and have both learned a lot from their starting points. Both of these characters lost their parents at a young age due to factors beyond their control, both sought to do something in response to this (the twins fought the injustice of their country and it’s unrest too try to make a safe place for it’s citizens, so no other children would be orphans like they were, Tony spent his entire life trying to live up to his father’s demands and expectations.), and both, when they realised their ways of going about this (for the twins, trying to destroy Stark, who they blamed for much, for Tony, the creation, manufacture and sale of weapons) were doing considerable harm… both stopped, and both proceeded to try to not just make amends for what they’d done, but actively undo it - Wanda fights back Ultron’s drones, tries to save lives on the train and pre-emptively in Novi Grad and fights alongside the Avengers, while Tony halts the manufacture and sale of his weapons, tries to track down his Stark tech and works as an Avenger, trying to prevent disaster.

There’s other similarities too. They both lose people who are either important to them, or who are integral to their character arcs. Tony loses his parents, yes, but also Obie, who turns out to have betrayed him and Yinsen, who taught him what his weapons did, and the loss of Coulson impacts him incredibly - “We are not soldiers!”. Wanda loses her parents, her city and her brother, as well as sacrificing the vengeance that supported her for so long.

They both learn that those they’re working with may not be the right ones - Obie in IM1, but also learning of his father’s work with Anton Vanko in IM2 and the likely accidental or invisible ties between Howard’s presence in SHIELD even as SHIELD was early on riddled with HYDRA and, of course, Ross and the Raft. The twins sign on to work with what they think is SHIELD, only to later learn it’s HYDRA - this isn’t fan speculation, believe it or not, but canon.

[Source: This Scepter’d Isle prelude comic for Avengers: Age of Ultron. Note List saying “our Iron Man, … our Avengers”. They’re claiming to be SHIELD as this was before CATWS and the reveal of HYDRA. Many thanks to @emmasdiamondheart for reminding me this panel exists]

And of course, after this, they work with Ultron, only for Wanda to learn his intention to destroy the world, which they of course cannot condone (when Ultron asks them not to get involved on the train Wanda responds “What choice do we have?”). Both Wanda and Tony repeatedly place trust in the wrong people and feel deep responsibility for this. And even Wanda’s continued anger at Stark when she knows he is the better choice than Ultron (“Ultron cannot see a difference between saving the world and destroying it. Where do you think he gets that from?”) makes sense - while Tony stopped making and selling weapons for and to others… he’s continued to make the best and worst weapon of them all - his own Iron Man suits, which he has kept wholly for himself - even Rhodey had to steal his suit, because Tony trusts so very few people. Indeed, like Steve, in some ways he does believe that sometimes the best hands are his own, even if he is very willing - and may even in a way find it comforting - to be held accountable for things.

There’s also a big one left. A really big one. A huge big one. And while every Stark Stan may try to justify it, it only goes to show the huge disparity between how Tony’s anger is treated vs. Wanda’s.

[Source: Captain America: Civil War. Tony stating his intent to kill Bucky Barnes for the death of his mother - a death Bucky was not in control of, as the brainwashed Winter Soldier, but is being blamed for anyway, and a death long ago.]

[Source: Avengers: Age of Ultron. Wanda putting fear into Tony Stark’s mind in order to bring about his downfall - an action done under the belief that blame was to be placed at Tony’s feet, regardless of if it was or not, and for deaths long ago.]

This is where the disparity comes in - a huge disparity, a disparity that I am pretty damn sure has it’s roots in classism, racism and sexism.

Tony is allowed to attack Bucky. He’s defended for it. He’s given justifications. And after it all, his fans still write fics where he apologises to Bucky and everything is fine and dandy. Wanda, on the other hand, is vilified. Is insulted from here to hell and back, is blamed for everything Tony does wrong from AOU onwards, is used to justify Tony’s every action - even Tony’s insults towards her:

“It’s a 100 acres with a lap pool. It’s got a screening room. There’s worse way to protect people. She’s not a U.S. Citizen and they don’t grant visas to Weapons of Mass Destruction.”

[Source: CACW, Tony to Steve, justifying Wanda’s illegal house arrest that happened against her knowledge… which kind of invalidates a house arrest when the person could break it simply by popping out to the shops.]

People buy into the in-universe media’s narrative that Wanda caused the explosion (she didn’t. We literally see Crossbones setting off the bomb he’s wearing). There are people who call her a murderer because she couldn’t contain an explosion - even though she contained it long enough to get it out of range of the people in the market, undoubtedly saving all of their lives. Indeed, the onus there if anything should have been on Steve, the one who was directly confronting Crossbones - but he got distracted, and Wanda, an Avenger still being trained up, still without a full grasp of her powers, had to step in when the bomb was set off.

[Source: Captain America: Civil War. Wanda self-flagellating over her perceived failure to save the lives of the Wakandans.]

Wanda displays much the same hallmarks as Tony Stark, has a very similar arc and very similar responses to trauma and mistakes (drive for vengeance and desire to make amends most notably).

And yet, Wanda is blamed, insulted, vilified. Tony Stark is praised, defended and others are trodden down so he may be raised up. Why is this?

It’s really very very simple:

Tony is a cis male (ostensibly) straight guy, born and raised in America to immense wealth, with a genius level intellect, constant snark and Daddy issues to make even Tyrion Lannister or goddamnit Jon Snow cry. He’s America’s 1%, he’s got guilt issues up the wazoo and his sarcasm and snark makes him many people’s favourite archetypes in one - and so they defend him to the death.

What’s Wanda got?

Wanda is a woman from Eastern Europe who grew up first in a block of flats which were later destroyed due to the war-torn nature of her home country and from then, is said to have lived on the streets according to Marvel. She and her brother were deeply codependent as a result of their trauma, and, in order to have the power needed to take the vengeance they had sought since they were ten (reminder! they were children when they imprinted on this idea) they let themselves be experimented on by people they later learned were Nazis.

Oh, and she actually managed to in-part take that vengeance on Stark.

That’s the reason she’s hated. She’s a woman. She’s Other with her Eastern European accent. She’s Different with her powers no one can explain. She was poor. She’s foreign and lesser and a she. And then she attacked a fandom fave due to misconceptions that she believed in her whole life - that her upbringing and country only continued to emphasise:

[Source: Avengers: Age of Ultron. Sokovian graffiti of Tony Stark as Iron Man, his face plastered over with dollar signs.]

It’s xenophobia. If you count in the Roma and Jewish background of the twins in comics, then it’s also racism. It’s certainly sexism, likely classism. These things mean that few will consider her… for her. For her character arc, for her trauma. Few will sit down and notice the similarities between her and Tony, few care. Instead, they hate her for her act of vengeance. They don’t try to understand why.

[Source: Captain America: Civil War. Vision explains the science behind the fear response to Wanda due to her powers in-universe. And yet - so few both in the MCU and out of it - where it doesn’t actually matter - care to delve into the whys and werefores and Wanda’s treatment.]

They just hate.

And it fucking sucks.

End Note: If you should want a truly excellent fic written to battle these issues with how Wanda is perceived and treated in and out of universe, may I recommend to you all Soldier, Weapon, Stranger, Monster by the wonderful @tobermoriansass, who has been such a help in writing this meta.

anonymous asked:

Do you think Allura taking over Blue will give her positive or negative character development?

oh positive definitely

see, we all already KNOW allura is a fantastic leader, so she doesn’t need to prove anything by piloting black, her position as the princess of altea and the pilot of the castle of lions already shows us how capable she is 

yeah her piloting black probably makes the most sense, but i don’t think it will make the story as interesting. What new character traits will we learn about her? that she’s a great leader? well yeah anyone who’s watched the show already knows that

but then, her piloting BLUE or any other lion other than black would give the team a new interesting dynamic. It’ll put her in position she’s not used to, which NONE of them are used to, and it’ll lead to so many possibilities opening up and being explored

we may see her getting to know the paladins on a personal level, we may see her opening up more to them, we may see her letting down her leader persona just to have fun with them like normal teens, hell we may even see them learning new things from each other and helping each other grow. You have to remember, allura isn’t an all perfect deity, she has flaws and she’s still growing, but being raised your entire life to rule an entire planet and then being thrust into a war which only you can lead doesn’t leave a lot of time for self reflection

so i think she’ll go through a lot of personal growth if she’s in a position where she doesn’t have to be the leader, and actually sees the other paladins as her equals and her friends.

(also this is just speculation but i don’t think team voltron would simply go “fuck that” when they find out shiro wanted keith to lead voltron. His words mean a lot to them and i’m sure they’d do everything they can to honor his wish)

Some Wounds Healed

When Zuko comes down with a critical fever, and Iroh sees the waterbender in Ba Sing Se, he makes the natural choice and asks Katara to help heal his nephew. Oneshot.

Katara didn’t know what she was getting herself into, that much she knew.

But the man - Iroh was his name - he had seemed desperate. He had come out of nowhere, and had pleaded, clearly recognizing her, to help him. Her heartstrings had been pulled because of the poor man, who had never really attacked them.

The only problem was that he was pleading not for her to help him, but to help his nephew.

And Zuko was not someone Katara wanted to help. He had done nothing but attacked them, followed them, stolen her mother’s necklace, and tried to capture Aang.

He didn’t deserve her help.

But, Katara thought as she dressed in a black hood, Iroh didn’t deserve to go through the pain of losing his nephew just because said nephew was a jerk.

Jughead x Reader

words: 1,371

A/n: Jughead is becoming infatuated with a photography student who shares the same english class, what happens when y/n may have captured a picture of Jason Blossom’s killer?

Y/n pov -

You were in the dark room just behind the photography studio in school, developing some photos you had taken the night before. Looking back at the photos taken of the River and the nature flourishing around it. No one had really been back to the River since Jason’s body was recovered but you couldn’t help going to capture the beauty around. You loved the way you could create art in one single snap of a second, then the moment was yours to hold forever.

You take a look at one of the photos you took of a tree and notice a figure walking in the background. You couldn’t help the nauseous feeling in your stomach at the fact it could have been someone following you, Jason’s killer even. You push the feeling to the back of your head shaking your head, hanging the photo up to dry. You collect your things and unlock the dark room door opening it only to bump into a chest. You look up to see Jughead Jones, tall dark and handsome, staring at you with his always present pissed off facial expression.

“I’m so sorry Jughead, I wasn’t looking where I was going” you explained looking up to his gaze with apologetic eyes. he simply shuffled passed you awkwardly mumbling an “okay” you just shook your head and walked passed Archie stood next to the door. What were they even doing in the studio they didn’t take photography?

Truth of the matter is you’ve been bumping into Jughead an awful lot lately, you were unsure why because your paths had never crossed before, he just always seems to be around whenever you are lately.

_________________________________________________

(Later that day)

You sat in your usual booth at Pops, camera in your hands looking through photos you’d recently taken. Regulars of the diner waltz in, Betty, Veronica, Archie and Jughead, they walk straight past you and go over to their usual booth, ordering food and talking intently.

Jughead’s POV -

Me and guys headed to our booth at Pops when I saw her again, just sitting there looking at her camera, she was so captivating I don’t know why but I was just drawn to her. We shared the same English class, she sat three seats away me, everytime I’m near her I just get weird and awkward and end up coming across rude.

“Hey that’s Y/n from English lit right?” Archie suddenly pipes up nodding his head towards the lonesome girl in the booth. “uh yeah, think so” i grumble and put my head down opening up my laptop.

“why don’t you go and sit with her, she’s almost as secluded as you” Veronica jokes lightly pushing my shoulder. “No I don’t wanna sit with her, I don’t even know the girl, besides she’s busy with her camera or whatever” I continue to brush off the people pestering me. “Oh you know you have a crush on her, just go and talk to her” Betty adds.

“Who said I have a crush on her?” I fire back defensively “You did. Just there, stop being so difficult and go talk to the girl” i just frown and shake my head. Archie kicks my leg under the table and gestures towards her.

With a sigh i get up and approach Y/N’s booth, “uh hi mind if I sit?” I ask her she jumps and drops her camera on the table looking up to me with wide eyes. “I uh- yeah sure” I jump down onto the seat beside her and she shuffles round the booth a little. I examine her as she takes a sip from her milkshake and looks back at her camera. “If you don’t mind me asking why are you here?” she quizzes me with a confused look upon her face.

“well, I just noticed you were alone and thought I’d come keep you company, if you don’t mind that is” i replied matter of factly. “So Jughead Jones, perhaps the king of riding solo was concerned for another human beings loneliness” she giggled towards me.

I shook my head with a breathy laugh and look towards her camera.

Y/N POV -

I notice him looking towards my camera and I suddenly become protective, my hands tightening around it slightly. “can I see some of your pictures?” he asks looking genuinely interested, I hesitate before answer slightly pushing it towards him. “ Um they aren’t that great but yeah I guess” I press the play button on my camera and we scroll through the pictures. He gets closer to me as we scroll, his arm leaning behind me on the booth, I subconsciously lean in closer to him as he looks at a picture in more detail.

“Y/N these are incredible, when do you take these?” he inquires looking at the camera amazed, for all the time I’ve known him i’ve never seen him this, well exhilarated he always seems so glum. “Uh these ones are from the summer onwards, I just take pictures when I’m bored, I like capturing a moment and finding beauty in it, I like to think that in some alternate universe everytime I take a picture, time freezes just for a moment. It’s dumb but it’s nice to be optimistic” I let out a small giggle and a smile. He just looks at me in amazement. “That’s kinda beautiful, it’s eccentric, I like it.” he smiles

we scroll through a couple more photos when he discovers something. “hey when was this taken” Jughead says looking intently at the photo by the river, I click on the photo and the date comes up, July 4th. The day Jason went missing at the river I just so happened to be taking photos of. “whats wrong?” I ask looking concerned at the photo.

“Look there’s somebody there, on the other side of the river, behind that tree..” he points out zooming into the photo. “What, no. there can’t be” i breathe out in disbelief, I take the camera and zoom right into the area he was talking about, just there on the screen was a dark figure standing just behind a tree. “ I can’t believe I’ve never seen this before” i say shocked. Jughead’s arm comes down to my side as we examine the photo but it was too dark to see who it was.

“Is there anyway we can make this clearer? you may have caught Jason’s killer on camera” just the thought sent shivers down my spine, I stare blankly for a moment, Jughead’s hand coming in contact with my thigh in a soothing manner, he could tell I was freaked out.

“um I think if i can crop the picture on my laptop and edit it to lower the contrast and adjust the brightness we may be able to see a bit clearer” I say.

“Don’t worry about it right now, lets just forget about it for a while and chill yeah?” he says quietly, still sensing my nervousness towards the situation. “Do you wanna head back to the Drive-In with me?” he suggests a smile on his face.

“the drive-in?” i question “Yea, uh thats where I reside” he says with a beautiful smug look contorted on his face. I just smile and nod and we get up exiting the Diner.

We go to the drive in and Jughead takes me into the projection room where there was a bed set up and a bunch of posters. “wow you’ve got the perfect nihilistic teenage sad boy room, haven’t you” i giggle. “Hey!” He playfully punches my arm “I’m kidding, it’s actually quite perfect” i sigh sitting myself down on his bed. I take my phone out playing some music on a playlist and put it to the side. ‘Heroes’ by David Bowie comes on, Jughead looks at me in disbelief “you like good music too, damn” he says shaking his head, I just laugh and get up off the bed pulling him to dance with me, the silly flailing limbs just displayed the perfectness of the scene. We were two weird lonely kids joining together . Now we just need to discover who was in that photo.    

Team Dark’s story for Heroes always makes me ridiculously happy xD

Like, Omega’s motive makes sense, but he seems to constantly waver between “I wanna be the one to kill Eggman” and “yeah, sure, whatever y’all are doin”. 
Shadow legit has no clue what’s going on, no reason to trust Omega and Rouge, and just acts like, “Idk who these guys are but that bat seems really fuckin legit, better listen to her!”
Rouge just wants some ambiguous treasure that may or may not exist, and tbh, by the end of the first cutscene, I don’t think she gives half a flying fuck about the treasure. She’s just hype to be making friends and have an almost-reason to beat up Eggman. Did she ever take Shadow aside and fill him in on anything? Why is it she’s known this robot, like, 10 minutes and now trusts him with her life? We just don’t know!

A bunch of scene weans meet each other in a basement and decide they’re gonna go on some Bro bro’s Bizarre Adventure with little-to-no motive and I love it.

anonymous asked:

Hi Adrien, today I came across a post about your opinions on genderbends/genderswaps, and while I don't entirely disagree with them, I have to ask: how would you feel if someone decided to "genderbend" you're OC's?

…. you know what, surprisingly enough, you just made me reconsider my opinions on genderbends. again, for people who didn’t know my positions before, my general opinion is that, no, genderbends aren’t inherently transphobic, ‘cause you can make a character another sex without changing their gender, and vice versa. it’s a interesting character design exercise anyway, whether it be in drawing or writing, cause society affects how you build yourself depending on your sex and/or your gender.
now that you’ve brought up my OCs (which i assume are the TRaM crew since i keep posting about them) i have to elaborate a bit and add some nuance to that though. 

if someone were to attempt to “genderbend” kieren, it wouldn’t work, because his character is inherently male. it’s part of his identity and you can’t take it from him. he was assigned female at birth, but let’s say you want to “rule 63″ that. well then, you’d get kieren, but assigned male at birth, so it’d be a cis kieren. he’d probably have a few differences from the original character, but he’d be interesting to explore as well! however, a “female kieren”, cis or trans, would not make sense at all and i can’t really imagine it.
on the hand, take a character like ethan, whose ability to give a shit about anything relating to him is next to 0: if you were to make a version of ethan where he was born female, it probably wouldn’t change his personality much, he’d just roll with it and identify as female, cause that’s the kind of ¯\_(’-’)_/¯ character he is.

so basically, my position now is: yeah, sure, go for genderbends, IF they make sense in a way or another or bring up interesting things. but, like, yeah, whatever man, i still won’t go after people who make thoughtless genderbends cause that’s just pointless, let insecure guys draw their weird bimbos because they cant admit to being attracted to hot dude characters. 

in the meantime ill be in my place being gay and drawing my cool gay characters, who may or may not also be trans. and then i’ll eat nuggets or some shit, idk

people can say whatever they want about larries but in the end of the day it wont change how much they deeply adore louis and harry and you can see it from even the simplest things like the tags they put when they reblog from us and i creep and read them like yeah ive seen some cute ones for louis and harry separately (ive been running this blog for almost 3 years now ive read them all lol) but for some reason reading the tags people post for louis and harry are so damn cute and so so so pure i just i literally want to hug every single one of you lol its always in this like adoring almost motherly tone when i read the tags like very proud like, “yes these two grown men are my babies, they are in love hello yes look at them ima reblog them for you guys can see my beautiful babies” anyways this is really random but idk i was reading some tags and i just i love you guys, im so glad louis and harry have such a amazing, loving, support system nomatter what people may say or think or whatever may be going on around them currently it will never change the fact that you guys love them so damn much and all you want is for them to be happy and feel loved and since you cant tell them you have these blogs, tags, etc. showing everyone else how much you love them and thats beautiful.

Song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LmWBphAf72g https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NR7-n-D2HhA (acoustic)

A/N: I totally loved writing this one. Hope you like this!! 


You looked at Peter, who had just entered his bedroom through his window. You had sent him a message minutes ago telling him you were waiting for him there, since you were supposed to have a movie night together at 10pm, and five hours later, you were still waiting.
You wanted to be mad -he had been ditching you repeatedly lately, not telling you where he was. You had always told him everything -that’s what best friends were for. There was only one secret you were keeping from him -the fact that you loved him; and that was something you weren’t planning on telling him soon.

Tell me pretty lies,
look me in the face,
tell me that you love me,
even if it’s fake,
cause I don’t fucking care at all…

You wanted him to tell you that he loved you. You wanted him to tell you he wanted to be with you, even if you knew that wasn’t going to happen.
‘’Peter,’’ you said, worried ‘’are you okay?’’
He nodded and smiled softly, leaving his backpack inside his wardrobe.
‘’Yeah’’ he told you. ‘’I was just out doing some shopping. You know Aunt May doesn’t like it when the fridge is empty and she would kill me if I hadn’t gone out’’ he said, stuttering.
You knew he was lying -it was 3am, and May didn’t actually care about the fridge. You didn’t want to fight, though, so you said nothing.

You’ve been out all night,
I don’t know where you’ve been,
you’re slurring all your words,
not making any sense,
but I don’t fucking care at all…

‘’Yeah, I know’’ you whispered softly. You wanted him to trust you, but you didn’t want to force him to tell you what was going on, although you thought you knew.

‘Cause I have hella feelings for you,
I act like I don’t fucking care,
like they ain’t even there…
'Cause I have hella feelings for you,
I act like I don’t fucking care,
'cause I’m so fucking scared…

I’m only a fool for you,
and maybe you’re too good for me.
I’m only a fool for you,
but I don’t fucking care, at all…

You didn’t want to ruin your friendship by telling him how you felt. He was perfect -funny, handsome, kind, intelligent. You were just you. His best friend. He would always see you as that, no matter how hard you tried.
He walked to the couch, putting on a movie, not paying attention to the time it was.
‘’You’ve been with her, haven’t you?’’ you asked as he sat next to you, not being able to contain yourself any longer.
He had been telling you about how Liz Allan had been taking to him for months, how he thought she was the prettiest girl ever. You had always tried to ignore it, but it still hurt.

And you’ve been out all night,
I don’t know where you’ve been,
you’re probably getting fucked, you’re probably getting head…
And I don’t fucking care at all…

‘’What do you mean?’’ he asked you, furrowing his brows.
‘’With Liz’’ you told him, making you sound obvious. ‘’I’m not stupid, Peter’’ you whispered, trying not to sound hurt. ‘’I know you’ve been with her. You have been talking about her for months. I know what’s going on. I’m just hurt that you didn’t tell me.’’
‘’I don’t understand’’ he said, sounding confused. ‘’Tell you what?’’
You grew frustrated -was he doing this on purpose to hurt you?
‘’That you have been sleeping with her, Peter!’’ you shouted, not containing your anger any longer. ‘’Do you think I didn’t realize? I may not have the best GPA, but I’m not oblivious to the world around me. At least not as oblivious as others’’ you said, looking at him, trying to get him to notice the way your eyes showed love even if you were mad at him.
He opened his eyes and mouth wide, looking like a fish out of the water.
‘’You think…’’ he started. ‘’You think I’m sleeping with her?’’
‘’I know you are sleeping with her, Peter’’ you said. ‘’I’m not stupid.’’
‘’But I am not sleeping with her’’ he told you. ‘’I wish I could just tell you the truth, but I can’t. I’m sorry, [Y/N].’’
You wanted to punch him, to scream at him. You just wanted him to realize how much he was hurting you. Did you believe him? Yes. You had no reason not to. But if he wasn’t sleeping with her, what was he doing every night?
‘’You know what, Peter?’’ you asked him. ‘’I have only kept one secret from you in my whole life,’’ you said, getting up from the couch and picking up your stuff ‘’and I did it because I didn’t want to ruin our friendship; but if you are going to be keeping things from me, I guess there is no friendship any longer, so I can tell you my big secret’’ you told him, tears in your eyes, your voice breaking. He looked at you, not understanding where you were going. ‘’I love you’’ you told him. ‘’I always have. I love the way you furrow your brows when you don’t understand something, or the way you mess your hair when you are frustrated. I love the way you smile when you do something right, or the way you hold my hand to help me relax. I love everything about you, and I’m tired of you not trusting me enough to tell me what the fuck is going on. I have hella feelings for you. I act like I don’t fucking care, like they aren’t even there, and I do it for you. I’m always so fucking scared. I’m only a freaking fool for you, and you are just… You are too good for me. I don’t fucking care anymore. Whenever you decide to trust me again, look for me, because I don’t fucking care about anything anymore’’ you told him before leaving his house and closing the door with a bang, not caring about the fact that it was 3am, walking home with a broken heart and a gone best friend.

How much do you want to bet that Phil Coulson will be the only one who can help Melinda May to remember her life outside the framework? I have the sneaking suspicion their reunion comes when May, as Hydra, literally has his resistance joining ass at gunpoint but can’t pull the trigger. Can you imagine? Her world has been so dark and twisted but suddenly there’s this guy in goofy glasses and he’s saying her name like he’s waited an entire lifetime to do so, and oh yeah, according to him they mean a lot to eachother. A lot. As in, everything. And she can’t shoot him because there’s these feelings and memories and none of it makes any goddamn sense EXCEPT there’s PHIL and she will always know him.

alynnl  asked:

The Avatar cast's reactions to having a prank pulled on them.

Katara: Will get very upset. Then will lectures you for two hours.

Toph: The one who pulled off the prank.

Iroh: He will be a bit offended and upset (considering his age too) but tries to brush it off and laughs.

Zuko: Will feel offended, insulted. Then won’t talk to you for 4 months.

Azula: She, in fact, expected your prank and made a counter plan and pulled it off on you instead. Then you will hear her laughing at you, “Nice try [insert nickname]. But you haven’t succeed this time.” Appreciated the whole thing, she finds it hella funny.

Ty Lee: “Why you have to be so rude?” She’s a bit hurt and angry, and may demand you to apologize. Ty Lee is sure cute but she’s her own independent perosn as well. I think Azula appreciates/likes this trait in her.

Mai: “Yeah, wherever.” Mai will think you’re being stupid, childish and don’t worth her time, so most likely will brushed it off, unless she was in a bad mood then will scolds you so hard you wish you weren’t born.

Suki: Your prank didn’t success. Her strong senses make her skillfully dodged it, and may pulled it off on you, as a punishment. She’s not the leader of the Kyoshi Warriors for no reason. See Boiling Rock episodes!

Sokka: You can pulled it off on him easily. He doesn’t like your shit but will forget about it after 5 minutes. He wouldn’t it personally.

Aang: If it was innocent prank, Aang with laughs with you. Honestly this boy is precious.

Ozai: You will be banished for disrespect.

So since the movies were announced, I’ve been thinking about how the series would be split. There are two seasons but three movies, but it’s not going to just be one season per movie. So I came up with a idea of what will be covered in each of the films, and the promotional images for the movies really fit the theory I came up with. So settle in, I’m about to explain all of my thoughts to you:

Obviously the first movie is going to cover the events of season one. But it’s not going to cover all of season one. At first I thought that this movie would end either after episode 17 or episode 21 of season one. I personally felt like ending it after episode 17 (when Suzaku is revealed to be the Lancelot pilot) would be the best for a few reasons, and I do still like the idea of it ending there the most. But then I remembered just how many storylines they have to cover in season two. So realistically, it would make the most sense for it to end after episode 23 to give the second film more time to cover some of the events of season two because, in my opinion, it would be much easier to cover 23 episode of season one in one film, but not of season two because of how much more happens in the second season. So more time has to be devoted to it, unless they cut stuff out. It would also give the film a shocking ending and a cliffhanger (i mean we all know how it’ll end but still) if they end it with Euphemia’s death and the looming knowledge that Suzaku and Lelouch are about to face each other. 

This is actually the photo that made me think my idea was correct. Seeing Suzaku in his Knight of Honor uniform and gripping his pin, I think it’s fair to assume that we are going to see the end of season one in this film, possibly including the Special Zone, again, it depends on how much time they’ll need to cover season two. Wherever the first film ends, this film will pick up where it left off and finish the first season. From there, it would then go into the events of the beginning of season two. Since these films will have added scenes, we may also see some of what happens between seasons one and two. I’m not really sure when the film would end though. As I said, season two has so many plot points and storylines, I’m not sure how they would fit it all in unless they put a good amount of it into this film. That’s what made me begin thinking that they were going to include the events of the Special Zone in the first film, so that they’d have more time to focus on season two in this film since so much happens in it. I’m thinking that they could go up to episode 10, which is when everything happens with the Chinese Federation. But they may go a little further and end with Shirley’s death to leave more room in the last film to really focus on what’s most important (Zero Requiem).

And then of course, the last film will cover the ending of season two. But like I said, a lot happens in season two. But I think it would make the most sense for this to focus on what happens after Shirley’s death, or the last ten episodes of the series. Then we’d see Lelouch destroying the geass order, the battle with the FLEIJA, Lelouch and Suzaku confronting Charles, and then the Zero Requiem.

So yeah, that’s how I think the movies will cover the events of the entire series. But we have to remember that these films will apparently include new scenes, which means some of what we saw in the original series may be cut out to make room for these. They may cut things out anyway just to make room for the most important aspects of the plot.

In terms of what I personally would like to see, I’d love to see some more… outside battle scenes, if that makes sense. I want to see characters spending time together, mostly. The films will have even less time than the series did to show us everything so this probably isn’t very realistic, but still. We are told that Suzaku and Lelouch are best friends, and we are shown that a bit, but I want to see them actually hanging out more in season one and being the best friends we’re continuously told they are. I want this even more with Suzaku and Euphie. I don’t think anyone was necessarily surprised when they confessed their love for each other, it seemed pretty obvious that they were going to be each others love interest, but I want to see them actually spending time together, before they confess their love and especially after. I want to actually see them fall in love with each other instead of the few scenes we got of them together before Euphie was killed. It would also make her death even more impactful if we got to see just how happy they were together. I’d also love to see more of Suzaku and Lelouch after Lelouch becomes emperor and they begin working together. I want to see them talk things out and become friends again.

I’d also love to see some more of what happens between the seasons. I would like to see what happens immediately after the season one finale, like Suzaku dragging Lelouch to the emperor and what exactly happened to Nunnally. If they have time for it, I’d also be interested in seeing more of the Knights of the Round and Suzaku as a new member, and how he became friends with Gino and Anya.

Anyway, this got long. let me know what your ideas are for how the films will take place and what you want to see in them! I love having discussions like this!

Can you do a headcanon where rfa + v+ saeran+ vanderwood reacting to an MC had with ADHD I have ADHD I never seen a request for it so Thanks love you 💖🌈

AH I’M SORRY THIS IS LATE. I JUST FOUND THIS WHILE SCROLLING AROUND MY NOTIFICATIONS. AND I LOVE YOU TOO <3 I’m actually really excited about this, cause I actually have a lot of the symptoms of ADHD, but I was never diagnosed with it. This is gonna be really fun to write.


Yosung:

~Yoosung found out you had ADHD when he first went to your apartment.

~He was surprised to see your house so…cluttery 

~”Heh heh, whoops, I forgot to clean..Again…For the tenth time this week…”

~Wait, what??

~You saw the confused look on Yoosung’s face as soon as you said that, so you explained that you have ADHD and you tend to get distracted when you try to do housework. Or any work, for that matter.

~As much as Yoosung’s concerned about you, he can’t help but feel like a Manly Man™ whenever he reminds you to do anything, whether it be reminding you to do housework or take your medication (if you take medication)

~May or may not have stolen a Fidget Spinner from Seven for you.

~He may or may not have been grateful when you burned it.


Zen:

~”Hey, MC, can you help me practice my lines?”

~Ruh roh.

~”Uh, funny story.. Heh heh, I would, if I wasn’t the worse person to practice with…”

~Huh?

~”Oh, yeah, I didn’t tell you yet. I have ADHD.”

~Ooh, that makes sense.

~Zen bribes you to focus on things.

~No, it’s not with candy. 

~It’s with kisses.

~You hate to break it to him that his ‘special method’ doesn’t always work.

~He kisses you anyway, though.


Jaehee:

~She knew right away that you had ADHD.

~You tend to fidget often? BAM, she’d already getting thousands of fidget toys.

~You’re not taking medication? BAM! You are now.

~You can’t focus on work BAM! She’s helping you out

~She’s Mother Hen™

~She has a solution for everything.


Jumin:

~As soon as Jumin found out that you have ADHD, he instantly started to make a schedule for you.

~He tapes it everywhere.

~There’s a copy in the kitchen, the bedroom, heck,there’s even one in the bathroom.

~He also puts sticky notes with reminders on them all over the place.

~The best medication.

~The best fidget toys.

~He always treats you whenever you finish a big project on tim.

~Well, he’d do that anyway,  but he’s even more proud, which means you get even more spoiled.

~Honestly, this man’s a sweetheart.

~He get’s it from being friends with V-wHAT I DID’”T SAY ANYTHING.


Seven:

~”Hang on!”

~He left the room and came out with boxes filled with Fidget Spinners ad Fidget Cubes.

~”Saeyoung, you got to be kidding me.”

~”What? What’s wrong with having a few Fidget Spinners around the house?”

~A FEW?!?! THERE’S LIKE 50.

~”I had more, but Saeran burned him.”

~I don’t blame him.

~I mean, I don’t hate Fidget Spinners (I have a few, myself. ONE LOOKS LIKE BATMAN!), but it’s just the fact that IT’S SUCH A HUGE CRAZE BOTHERS ME. LIKE, THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO HELP ADHD, NOT BE THE COOL NEW TOY THAT EVERYONE WANTS

~I’m sorry, I’ll stop ranting.


V:

~”Will this help you focus more?”

~”Do you need help?”

~”Are you taking medication?”

~”Do you need to start taking medication?”

~”Is there anything I can help you with?”

~”Is there anything you need?”

~ALL I’M GONNA SAY IS KEEP THIS BOY BEFORE I TAKE HIM. HE’S PRECIOUS AND JUST WANTS TO HELP. HE JUST WANTS YOU TO BE HAPPY AND HEALTHY.


Saeran:

~”Oh great, there’s two of them.”

~Saeran Choi yOU TAKE THAT RIGHT BACK THIS INSTANT YOUNG MAN.

~Phft, I’m practically five and I’m scolding a fictional 22 year old- I’M SORRY, I’LL GET BACK TO THE POINT.

~Yeah, he’s not exactly the most patient person in the world, but he tries. He really tries.

~You helped him with all his problems, so he wants to help you with yours.

~At least you don’t shout random memes every ten second, that makes it ten times easier for him to help you.

~Otherwise he wouldn’t know what to do.

~Speaking of which, he’s clueless on how to help you, but like I said, he tries.

~Yes, he flicks your forehead whenever you get distracted, but hey, he’s trying.

~You know what they say, it’s the thought that counts.


Vanderwood:

~He went from Vandermaid to Drill Sargent Vandermaid in ten seconds.

~”MC, You *are* going to clear your desk and you *are* going to clean the dishes.”

~He means well, though.

~**cough**itusuallyendsupwithcuddles**cough**

~The cuddles are worth dealing with Drill Sargent Vandermaid’s fury and strictness.

~Like I said, he means well. He does it out of love.

How The World Works, Chapter one

I ran across the crosswalk, throwing my hood over my head to avoid being attacked by the rain. I had tried to make a beeline to the nearest bus stop until I was stopped in my tracks by a car flying past me, a book being chucked out the window, landing in a puddle. I tried shouting to get the driver’s attention, just in case that this was an accident, but by the time i looked up, the car was long gone.
Naturally, I was curious about the book, so I walked over and picked it up, brushing the grime off of the cover. It read: Hamilton: A History Of The $10 Founding Father. Unfortunately, the only thing I could make out of the author’s name was Li. The rest of the name had been ripped off, as if someone had tried to hide it. I carefully placed the book into my bag, as not to damage it any further and continued my trek home.
***
I quickly closed the door to my apartment, happy to finally be out of the rain. I slung my jacket onto it’s hanger and threw myself onto my sofa, sighing in content. I was about to close my eyes and try to go to sleep, but then I remembered the book. Sitting up, I pulled the book out of my bag and opened it. Suddenly, a bright, white light filled the room. However, it was gone as soon as it came. Opening my eyes and looking down at the book, I realized that all the pages were blank. Every single one. Panic began to rise within me. I was about to call my friend, F/N, when I heard a loud crash from my bedroom. I grabbed a kitchen knife and began creeping towards the noise.
I reached the door and opened it as quietly as possible to see a freckled man with long, curly brown hair and hazel eyes, looking around in panic.
“Who are you and why are you in my bedroom?!” I shouted, pointing the knife at him.
He raised his hands in surrender, “I don’t know! I was shot in battle and appeared here!” He replied, fear evident in his voice.
“Battle?” I asked, easing my grip on the knife. He seemed like he had no clue what happened.
“Yes. Wait… What year is this?” He asked, studying the room.
“2017… Sir, are you sure you’re okay?” I put the knife down completely.
“2017? That isn’t possible.. It- it was just 1782…” He said, growing pale.
“I think you should sit d-” I was cut off by his eyes rolling back into his head and him passing out. “Shit!” I shouted, doing my best to catch him. I threw his arm over my shoulder and dragged him to my bed. After flinging him onto the mattress, I ran my fingers through my hair.
What was happening?! A man claiming that he is from the 1782 just magically teleported into my bedroom and collapsed. Wait, wasn’t that Hamilton guy alive in the 1700’s? This couldn’t be because of that dumb book.
Could it?
Suddenly, I heard another voice from downstairs. It was another guy calling out to see if anyone was there. Whatever this was, it couldn’t be good. I ran my hand over my face and hurried down the stairs. Once I saw who it was, I couldn’t believe my eyes. It was George Washington! Yeah, this was definitely from the book.
“Sir?” I asked nervously, stepping into my kitchen. “If I may take an educated guess, you are George Washington and you just died, yes?” I questioned, avoiding eye contact. He turned around to look at me. He looked calm enough.
“Yes, may I ask who you might be?” He asked. I finally gained the courage to make eye contact and man, was he intimidating. He seemed kind, but then he stared me down like… Well, like a general would to his soldiers. It makes sense, I suppose.
“My name is (Y/N) (L/N), and you are in 2017.” I replied, “I don’t know how this happened, but there is man here who just appeared here as well. However, He passed out before I could catch his name. He has long, curly brown hair, freckles, and hazel eyes? He was wearing one of your uniforms, so I’m assuming that he is one of your soldiers? He said he died in 1782..”
“John Laurens?” He asked in disbelief. “He is one of my soldiers. May I see him?” His calm stature cracking for just a second.
“Of course. He is upstairs, second room to the left. Would you like anything to drink? Water? Some coffee?” I asked, desperately trying to be polite, as he was the first president, after all.
“Just water please. And thank you, Miss (Y/N).” He picked up my hand and kissed my knuckles, then rushing up the stairs. I couldn’t help but blush at the action. I grabbed two water bottles out of the refrigerator. Then, I remembered that he was about 280 years old so he probably wouldn’t know what Aquafina was. Therefore, I poured the bottles into two glasses. I took the glasses upstairs, and I peeked into my bedroom to see George sitting in a chair next to my bed, murmuring something under his breath. I knocked on the open door, gaining George’s attention.
“Oh, thank you, Miss (Y/N).” He said, gratefully. He accepted the water and took a sip. I pulled another chair from my desk and sat across from him.
“You’re taking this surprisingly well.” I commented, setting the other glass next to John for him to drink once he wakes up. “How are you not in this massive panic? I mean, you’re almost 200 years in the future.”
“It takes practice. I mean I was a general, after all. I’m used to masking my emotions from my soldiers. Admittedly, I am afraid, but I have confidence that you will take care of us. You seem like a kind woman.” He confessed, smiling at me.
“Why, thank you. You’re not so bad yourself, Mr. Washington.” I replied, a grin spreading across my face.
“Oh, call me George, please.”
I looked down to see John coming to. He tried sitting up, but I pushed him back down.
“Take it easy, Mr. Laurens. You just passed out and your friend, George Washington joined us while you were gone.” I spoke softly. “Are you alright?”
“I’m alright. This is just difficult to process.” John replied, giving me a sheepish smile.
“That’s understandable. Here, I got you some water.” I handed the glass to him. He thanked me, drinking the whole glass.
“Miss, I’m afraid I never got your name.” He said, looking up at me.
“My name is (Y/N) (L/N).” I replied, holding out my hand for him to shake, which he gladly took.
“It’s a pleasure to meet you Miss (Y/N).”
Then suddenly, there was another crash from the laundry room.
