yes this is about the sticker thing

As I’ve mentioned before, I was raised in a strict Christian household. It was full of love, but it was also a house that didn’t like Ellen DeGeneres or Rosie O'Donnell simply because they were gay. A house that would turn off the tv when the lesbian episodes of Friends were on (while I ran to the tv in my room and pressed “mute” to see it). One that would roll their eyes at the idea of gay marriage. Parents that meant well and just went by what they were taught, wanting us to grow up with something to believe. I remember sobbing in high school, thinking they would absolutely kill me. Things slowly started changing when I was 16+.

My Mom was the one who asked if I was gay. She was my biggest supporter, my secret keeper, and the one I told everything to. My Dad? He went from not wanting me to come out, to protect me, to telling everyone he knows if they ask if I’m “dating any new guys” - because that’s simply who I am. In his words “why hide it? Who cares?”. My Mom came to me about Carol on her own, wanting to watch it to see the love story. When gay marriage was legalized, I called my Mom sobbing. She was sobbing with me, after yelling “YES! THANK GOD” in front of all of her friends.

After being raised to hate who I was, not even allowing it to be an option - to now, my Mother texting me just now saying “Do you have any more Human Rights Campaign stickers like you have on your car? I want one on mine”

Change is a beautiful thing. Believe in it and believe in people.

THAT’S parenting.

Critter Query

Hey guys. a Critter here. I’ve been poking around on the various social media sites, looking at comments and things about Ep 88. And I’ve found some things that are, well …. they’re not us.

Something happened to our fandom last night. Something I am worried about. We lost our #NicestFandom sticker. And I mean this is beyond mean Twitch chat blather (we all know Twitch chat is ridiculous and to stay away if you want to retain your sanity and love of the game). Here, I’ll give an example.

this is a screenshot taken from the reddit page:

Yes, that’s actually Matt, and he’s doing something he shouldn’t have to: he’s having to pull his DM tone on the Critters to defend Marisha. And I don’t mean explaining a rule bend or excusing an ability botch. People, people in the Critter Community, are flat out saying Marisha was basically drunk and she should stop drinking. Personally, I’ve never seen Matt bite back like this, and that scares me. He shouldn’t have felt like he had to at all. I know Marisha/Keyleth gets a lot of negative backlash, even hate, but it should have never gotten to this kind of level.

Beside the fact that Matt said from the get-go that it was a long week and that he and Marisha were both tired already, it wasn’t just them. And I don’t think it was just the episode either (as a doozy as it was). Everyone looked so exhausted. People were grumpy. Enthusiasm for even good things was almost nonexistent. 

I guess I’m laying all this out to say … I for one think maybe our beloved players and our amazing DM should maybe take some time off from Critical Role. I feel like they might have reached a point where they need a break, without it meaning that they’re going to be at a con or doing something. Just a break, a breather. It’s been go go go for months know, all stress and plots and do-or-die, all-or-nothing, everything-on-the-line action and battles.
Our DM is tired.
Our players are tired.
Our fandom is tired.
I think we might need a week off for a nap or something.

I’m wondering what the fandom at large would think of this. I’m also wondering, if there was a positive/agreeing feedback, if we could let them know and maybe they could get a real breather (cause I don’t think that ep was what any of us thought was going to happen)

How about it, Critters? Would we be willing to give our players a rest without fussing, if they decided they wanted/needed it?

BJoo Time~!

BJoo goes first for a couple of reasons. He sat directly with us from the beginning - Laira was actually sitting next to him for the entire start of the meal, until Hansol literally forced him to switch places. He spoke a lot of English - a LOT of English, which was a pleasant surprise. I know in live streams and stuff previously he’s asked fans to speak in Korean, but he’s been working really hard, and it’s showing. He joked around a bit and used an American accent a few times, and he spent most the meal wriggling around.

Harry Styles Cooks... Volume 1: The Baking Years

In which Louis Tomlinson can’t cook, there’s a very special shower curtain, and Harry Styles used to be a baker. 

Or: Louis owns all of Harry Styles’ cookbooks, and he never intends to cook a single thing out of any of them. 

Or: I don’t know what the fuck this is, sorry. 

Louis Tomlinson can’t cook. He can, for the most part, feed himself and generally keep himself alive, in a frozen pizza, tins of soup, cereal-for-dinner kind of a way. He can do pasta and sauce, and cheese on toast, and sandwiches, and microwave meals and things which require zero attention, zero skill, and even less enthusiasm. Louis Tomlinson likes Tesco meal deals for lunch and cans of coke on the way to the bus stop after work. He likes bags of crisps, and the biscuit tin by the printer in his office.

He has a long list of things he doesn’t like – including but not limited to courgettes, baked beans, couscous, fish, posh sausages that taste of stuff that isn’t pork, vegetables on principle, drinks that are green, kale, stuff they sell in Waitrose, mushrooms, weird fruit, lentils, and pineapple on pizza.

All of this is perfectly normal and doesn’t bother Louis one little bit.

It doesn’t, however, go any way to explaining why Louis has an entire shelf in his bedroom devoted to Harry Styles cookbooks, or why his best mates Liam and Niall bought him a custom-made Harry Styles Cooks… pillowcase and duvet set for his birthday last year, with Harry Styles’ ridiculous face plastered all across it like on the titles of his stupid cooking TV show, or why Louis had to buy a DVR purely to save all the stupid episodes of each of Harry Styles’ stupid cooking series so he could watch them whenever he wanted. It definitely didn’t explain the three different Harry Styles-themed mugs in the kitchen cupboards, and it 100% did not explain the special shower curtain.

There obviously is an explanation for all of that, but it isn’t something that Louis can file under any sort of ‘wants to learn to cook’ headline.

grumpifyme  asked:

Hc: siren!danny being kind of iffy at first about sleeping inside a house and especially weirded out by sleeping without a light on, bc when he was in the sea, even then there was moonlight filtering in and in the darker parts he could usually find bioluminescent plankton or other tiny creatures that may not have even been discovered yet. And of course his glowing body/(fins?Scales?)

God this is so sweet. For awhile, he needs to sleep w a lamp on bc the darkness is so uncomfortable for him, hes not used to it. And maybe one day the lightbulbs blow out bc of course Arin forgot to replace them. But hes got this small little nightlight somewhere in the closet that he gives to Danny. 

“Its not the BEST solution but its something yanno?”

And that little light does the job better than any lamp hes ever had. It confuses Arin at first, bc the more light there is the better…right? Dan doesnt sleep on the bed anymore, hes always on the floor directly below the light. Sometimes hes lying against the wall, sometimes hes hanging off the bed upside down. But no matter what, hes always got this little night light in his peripheral. 

Dan tells him weeks later how much the surface world differs from the world below. 

“Its not anything crazy you know? just.. the creatures here are different. Everything seems so… muted and dull compared to the ones in the ocean.” 

“Sometimes, i sleep on the roof. But like, only on clear nights! Because the stars are really bright and so close to me. I feel like i could reach out and just grab them, Arin. Its not the same thing, but its the best ive got right now.”

haikyuulovercompany  asked:

Hey !! Sorry to trouble you, but I remember your amazing fukurodani mug, and I want to buy a bunch of Haikyuu stickers and from other fandoms, and I don't know if you know RedBubble, or you can tell me where you got your mug? I'm afraid of spending my money in a low quality brand. Thank you a lot!!

Aaaaa yes, the mug, I’m drinking coffee from it right now actually lol. 

I got it from Society 6! I don’t think Society 6 has stickers but I really love my mug! I also got a t-shirt that looks like Bokuto’s jersey from there which is pretty great, although a little see-through lol. I would definitely recommend this site!! 

I’ve heard mixed things about Redbubble and have never ordered from them so I can’t confirm the quality!



My Bullet Journal!
An In-Depth Guide

It has been HIGHLY requested for me to do a full, in-depth guide or post about my bullet journal.. so here it is!  I’m new to my bullet journal as well, so I’m sure as I go I’ll learn more and more about it and figure out little things that work for me, but for right now, here’s what I do!

As I said before, my “style” for this bullet journal was inspired by another studyblr: staticsandstationary.  The top banners and such are all from her styled bullet journal.  They looked fairly simple and I thought that they would work perfectly for me as well!
I will list all of the materials that I use at the end of this post, and if you have questions as to where the stickers are from, just send me a message and I will try and link you right to it!

I’m going to go through it with you section-by-section, so I hope this is helpful!
I plan on doing a video on this next week as well, if that’s something you guys are interested in.

Photo 1: Legend and Index

When you first open my bullet journal, this is what you see!  On the left is my legend.  This includes all of the different types of bullets I have and what they mean, and then a few color variations for personal things and work things. When it comes to school work, I use different colors for different subjects, but I plan on creating separate legends on a page at the beginning of each semester.

On the right side is the beginning of my index.  This is something I keep going throughout the use of my bullet journal.  Every time I enter into a new month, I put the page numbers for the end of the previous month and the beginning of the new month.  It seems silly, but the further you get into your journal, the much more convenient it will be to have in order to find certain pages.

Photo 2: April Monthly View and Expenses

On the left is April’s monthly view.  I go down the line and put the numbers for the date as well as the first letter of the day of the week.  It helps me keep track of things at a glance.  This month only has beginning at the 15th, because that’s when I started my bullet journal.  I used different colors for different courses (this was around finals time).  I didn’t include those in my legend because they were the same colors I’d been coordinating with all semester, so I knew them by heart and didn’t feel the need to include them.  Pink still accounts for my personal tasks and events and orange is work-related things.

On the right begins the expenses.  This is for the month of April only.  I sort all of my expenses per month because I find that it makes it much easier to flip to your most recent expenses.  I don’t have a key for the colors in this either.. but oh well.  For these, I have three different colors: green, blue, and orange.  Green means that it was a reasonable and unavoidable expense (groceries, gasoline, etc.).  Blue means that it was a fairly reasonable expense but not 100% necessary.  It’s my in-betweeny.  Orange means that it could have been avoided (fast food, impulse buys, etc.).  I created a chart where I put the item on the left and the price on the right.

Photo 3: May Monthly View and Expenses

Here is May’s monthly view and expense page.  Yes, I skipped past some pages for April’s daily calendar.  I will show you those for May.

Photo 4: May Monthly Spread

Here is the first weekly spread for the month of May.  I create these to-do lists as I go, usually the night before.  As you can see on Friday, when I go shopping, I include the shopping list of the things that I purchased on a post-it note and I leave it on that particular day.  This way, I can keep track of when I bought certain items.

This is also when I started incorporating my stickers (:

Photo 5: May Monthly Spread

Here is another weekly spread.

Photo 6: May Monthly Spread and June Monthly View

Here begins the monthly view for June.  Yes, I planned ahead for you guys to kind of give a better example.  This monthly spread obviously doesn’t have a lot going on yet.  As I go through the month, I’ll add things to the monthly view.  I don’t keep everything in the monthly view, obviously.  Just large events or things tI need to remember at a broader glance.

Again, if you have any questions as to where any of the stickers are from, don’t hesitate to message me!

Photo 7: June Expenses and June Weekly Spread

This is my most recent page.  Obviously, June 1st is about a week off.  I planned ahead here so I could show you what I have been doing.  I got a few questions about planning ahead.  What if you have tasks you know that you need to get done on a future date?  What do you do to remember them?  I actually haven’t mastered this yet.  I still use my Lily Pulitzer agenda for that.  I keep all of my to-do lists for future dates in there, and then when it’s time to fill out my bullet journal, I refer to it and go from there.  for now, I’ve been planning on things that I need to do when I get back from Florida.  Those things are in pencil on the bottom right (if you can see it!).  I wanted to include that as a little tip.  You can always use pencil or post-its and erase and remove them later!

I hope this was helpful for all of you guys!  

Here’s a list of the supplies that I use:

  • Moleskine Large Squared Hardcover Journal
  • BIC Cristal Pens (Bold for Colors)
  • Stickers - Ask me!
Bad Boy!Jin

It’s time for the next series! This one is going to be a bad boys series (these could get long idek I really like the bad boy concept) I’m so excited, thank you to Hufflepuff anon for requesting this, starting off with our precious lil eomma Kim Seokjin (I’m also making this a high school AU so it’s like two for the price of one)

  • I’m just gonna give you a lil image to work with here
  • We all know Jin’s broad as a damn door so just picture him in that black leather jacket
  • He sometimes doesn’t even wear a leather one but it’s always black
  • His hair's black too and basically everything he wears is black bc have ever seen the Japanese version of Danger? That's bad boy!Jin’s look right there 
  • D e f i n i t e l y has a lip piercing, has a few in his ears as well   
  • At first people don’t take him seriously as a “bad boy” bc he’s so pretty
  • But he’s tall as hell and he like doesn’t even have to fight anyone, he just has to stand up and move to take his jacket off and they’d see how broad and tall he is and just be like lol jk man I don’t want to mess with you
  • He doesn’t really talk to anyone tbh
  • Like he has his group of friends but outside of them everyone just gets a glare instead of a response
  • Tbh he’s the calmest in the group but like one day he sees someone picking on Kookie and it’s all over
  • He’s just immediately got them against the locker
  • “What’d you say about my little brother?”
  • Tbh they all go everywhere together
  • If they’re not in class, they’re together
  • And sometimes some guys that are just looking to look tough try to corner one of them but it never ends well bc the other six just walk up behind them and they all bolt off so quick bc yeah maybe they can handle a few but seven??? nope no thnx
  • Doesn’t help that they’re all ripped
  • You’ve never said a single word to Jin before, you had a few classes together but you two sat far away from each other and like you’d never even thought to speak to him since he never spoke to anyone
  • You do think he’s cute though like you’ve never seen him do anything mean so you assume he’s not all that bad
  • But one day after school you decide you want to go to the bakery your mother always gets sweets from
  • It’s just this really cute lil bakery near your house but it has the most amazing sweets ever
  • You step in and it just smells so fantastic like they have fresh bread, they have cakes, they have cookies, they have everything
  • They’ll even make you something for lunch if you ask like you’ve come over from school just to ask the owner, Mrs. Kim, if she’d make you something and she always has like five plates for you
  • But what you don’t expect to see is Jin standing behind the counter, placing fresh cookies into the display case
  • He still has black clothes on but now he has this cute lil apron covering them and he actually looks like a typical teenager instead of one of the most intimidating boys in school
  • He does recognize you bc he has a huge crush on you
  • He doesn’t know what to do bc his instincts are saying to hide bc of all people to have to see him in this light pink apron holding a tray of cookies it has to be you
  • He listens to his instincts and just ducks behind the counter even though you’ve already seen him and he knows that very well but he figures it’s worth a try
  • He hears you laugh and he can’t help the lil smile that appears on his face and it’s just like no he refuses to have a crush on someone he’s never even said hello to 
  • You walk over to the counter and you have to lean over it a bit and you just see him crouched down using the tray as a shield to hide his face
  • “Do you think I could get one of those cookies?”
  • He’s kinda ??? bc he was expecting you to immediately start laughing at him or threaten to tell the entire school but you’re just more focused on the last cookie on the tray
  • But like he also kinda wanted it tbh and you can see his hesitation so you offer to share half of it
  • He gives you the bigger half
  • You’re just sitting there munching on your cookie but the reality of it is both of you are trying not to stare at the other bc you both find each other really attractive and it’s actually really hard to not just stare at his eyes bc they’re so pretty
  • You eventually decide on your order and the entire time you’re paying, he doesn’t say anything 
  • He finally speaks up when you’re putting your wallet away
  • “Hey…you won’t tell anyone about this right?”
  • His voice is so much softer than you expected
  • Like you just want to sit there and talk to him all day bc it’s so nice
  • You just hold up your half of the cookie and tell him that was the price of keeping the secret
  • He can’t help but smile bc he finds that adorable and you literally have to say wow out loud
  • You tell him his smile is beautiful and he’s just like what
  • His crush thought he had a beautiful smile this was the best day ever
  • He completely drops the bad boy thing and lets out this lil cheer and he’s just grinning to himself
  • You’re laughing again bc this can’t be the same Jin you knew from school
  • His smile only gets wider bc now you’re smiling at him and he doesn’t even remember giving his mouth permission to say it but the next thing he knows he’s asking if you want to eat your sweets with him
  • You have time to spare so you say yes and he comes out to sit with you at one of the tables
  • You split your sweets with him (he tells you he’ll refill your order for free before you leave)  
  • You pull out your notebook at one point to ask him a question about one of your classes together and he sees a Mario sticker on the cover of it and his eyes just light up s o bright
  • He’s immediately asking you if you play Mario and you two end up sitting there for an hour discussing how Princess Peach is constantly getting kidnapped
  • “Seriously, when are they getting her a guard? It happens every time”
  • He ends up walking you home and he can’t even snap back into badass mode bc you two somehow ended up holding hands and he's just really happy
  • He tries to be all casual when he asks you to get dinner with him on Friday but he ends up stuttering on the last word
  • You honestly just find it that much more endearing and give him your number so you two can plan it out
  • Before he leaves you grab his arm and lean up to kiss his cheek
  • “I like the real Jin a lot more than cool Jin”

this is available as a sticker on my redbubble c:

catty-words  asked:

raven reyes' wardrobe though: her adorable and puffy red jacket. that tattered blue t-shirt that looked so cozy and well-worn. her space suit, especially the raven-imprinted helmet. her boots (especially in the scene where she first steps foot on a bed of crunchy autumn leaves). that white henley shirt with the grey sleeves that's just like A++ and too much for my bi ass. those fingerless gloves she wears for maybe an episode (madonna ain't got nothing on raven).

you asked for this, so expect it to be long. lets geek out about raven’s wardrobe and her general otherwordly fashion sense because goddamn the fashion police is trying to get to her all the time wanting to give her some advice, but? she always looks good.

let’s start with this one

if your otp is raven x a dark greenish sweater vest ft. fingerless gloves then welcome to the club. the ecology between her and this outfit largely revolves around the fact that raven is a smartass. the statement she makes with it: ‘I’m gonna find out your secret and then i’m gonna fuck you up’. why else do you think her gloves are so long? her detecting skillz are on point. the observer is aware and she is going to go hard. also, check the color coordination. she clearly knows her style, a specialist in the arts of colors for sure.

the famous red bomber jacket aka raven’s new clothing line called ‘i’m gonna rip you to shreds’

raven’s clothes are like chopping up onions. they are layered and you end up crying a lot - tears of joy of course. sometimes you wonder if raven’s clothes are just a part of her body anyway because how does one look so cute and fierce with a red bomber at the same time, let alone during a mission? the damn chemistry… it’s not even science anymore. raven x red jacket is pure passion and their love is going to cut you like a razor (watch out alie, she’s coming for you). also, color scheme! red jacket plus well-worn and cozy blue tattered shirt! u know what that means? raven is actually bi. BI.

a little bird in space

whenever i see raven in her space suit i forget that earth is filled with some spooky things like mutated animals or reapers. because why the fuck have that, when you can have this

she just looks super cute in it. how she works a space helmet with her signature on it because yes this is raven fucking reyes in space, the little bird. the lil sticker with her name on it that finn gave her, how big the space boots look, like where the hell are her feet? she is so tiny and you just wanna hug and protect her but goddamn you don’t really need to, because space makes her feel good. the suit makes her feel good. she looks the happiest when she is wearing it, when she gets to explore space in it, see the world from a whole new angle. that’s the thing about the suit. it looks heavy, but raven makes it appear so weightless because she feels so weightless when she is wearing it, just getting to float around (yes, the irony of that word doesn’t escape me), and enjoy life in its fullest. i think we can all agree that she deserves more spacewalks, and less pain. the things i’d do for raven to find the Polaris pod in polis tbh.

moving on.

they say the problems never end, but you know what else really never ends? raven’s great fashion sense. and raven x shirts is what dreams are made of

raven in a dark red wine t-shirt? check

raven in a classic henley shirt with dark grey sleeves? check

raven being so extra and owning a hollister sporty burnout v-neck shirt that looks just a bit different from the henley with the grey sleeves? check

raven in a black tank top with flexing muscles? check. also, you see alie in the bg right? the thing is, alie never controlled raven. raven is actually in control of alie. that woman is so attracted to the unknown magnetic force of raven’s outfits (its fucking raw magnetism i swear), especially that tank top and those arms, that she’s practically hypnotized. alie only knows fashion from ‘bratz fashion boutique’ for the nintendo DS, she’s never seen anyone dress like this before. so in her eyes it ain’t even science anymore, it’s a whole new world. and leave it to raven to dess- i mean, fight like a genius. she’s got this.

or this one? ravens got a thing for darker sleeves. i told you she appreciates color coordination, it sustains her.

also, skinny jeans are out they say. time for raven to hit the streets

the green pants are my aesthetic and the details you can see on the jeans in the picture to your right is my kink.

and then raven’s boots.

her presence is undeniable *crunch crunch* girl is never out of style. also, who needs leg warmers when you can just tug your hands into your boots??? she is about to become the greatest fashion icon, watch her (if she isnt already duh).

one of these days she’s going to bring back heelys and everyone will actually love her for it. cause raven can make everything cool.

thenorthernphoenix  asked:

So you used to be a Sailor Moon fan? What were your favourite parts about the show?

Yes! My favorite things about it were the art and the 90s aesthetic, the music (Kaze mo, Sora mo, Kitto is my favorite song in the entire series), the humor, the friendships among the Inner Senshi, and the overall lore of the show. 

Sailor Moon was basically my entire childhood. It aired on Toonami right after school, and I was always surfing Sailor Moon websites via dial-up connection and reading fanfic and collecting manga. My late aunt and I would walk to her local laundromat just so I could get Sailor Moon stickers from the quarter machine. This was long before anime (in general) became a big deal and more accessible in the US. 

Played LittleBigPlanet with my family tonight for the first time, here are a few of the gems that were said:
  • Dad: Is this game difficult to understand?
  • Mom: Yeah, how many buttons do I have to push?
  • ---
  • Dad: Which character am I, we all look the same?!
  • Me: Stop moving around on the screen and I'll tell you.
  • Mom: Well, which one am I? Am I the one jumping?
  • Me: Stop moving for a sec so I can figure it out.
  • Sister: How do I jump?
  • ---
  • Me: Okay this is the tutorial.
  • Dad: What are we about to learn?
  • Me: How to move around and dress your character up.
  • Dad: What about how to jump and kill stuff?
  • Me: That comes later after you master the basics.
  • Dad: That sounds silly, why not just teach everything to me now?
  • Mom: Says the man who once called me asking how to text people on his flip phone.
  • ---
  • Mom: Am I the character with the glasses?
  • Me: That's me.
  • Mom: Am I the character that looks like an angel?
  • Me: That's your daughter.
  • Mom: I'm not the ugly skeleton looking dude, am I?
  • Me: That's your husband.
  • ---
  • Me: If you hold the back bumper, you control your arms.
  • Sister: If you flick your control stick, you can punch your friends.
  • Dad: -punches Mom-
  • Mom: -punches Dad-
  • Me: Oh my GOD are we ever going to finish the tutorial.
  • ---
  • Me: We NEED to stay together because whoever is offscreen dies.
  • ---
  • Dad: Why do I keep disappearing?
  • Me: You keep dying.
  • Dad: How do I not do that?
  • ---
  • Dad: -dies-
  • Me: The spikes kill you if you touch them.
  • Dad: You should warn us of dangers BEFORE we get to them.
  • ---
  • Sister: If you choose a sticker you like, you can use the X button to place it everywhere you like. Even on each other.
  • Me: Stop teaching them things that get us killed.
  • ---
  • Dad: Is that an enemy?
  • Me: No, that's a rock.
  • Dad: Is THAT an enemy?
  • Me: That's me.
  • Dad: What about this?
  • Me: The ghost? The ghost that just killed you? No, not an enemy.
  • ---
  • Mom: What's the giant boot do?
  • Mom: Oh.
  • Mom: It kills you, if anyone wants to know.
  • ---
  • Dad: Do you keep leaving me behind because I'm a liability?
  • Everyone: Yes.
  • ---
  • Me: We got through all the tutorial levels, this is the end screen, where it gives us our scores.
  • Mom: So we won?
  • Me: Yeah.
  • Mom: Are we done?
  • Me: No.
  • Mom: I need a drink.
  • ---
  • Dad: How are you hugging me? That's a cool function.
  • Dad: Is there a button that I can kiss my wife with?
  • Sister: I wanna be done.
  • ---
  • Me: I remember why we don't do family game night anymore.
  • Mom: We could always play a board or card game.
  • Me: I don't think I wanna play anything again ever after that.
Vote Yes

Okay so I got a prompt from @deanthomasfinnigan about wedding vows (which I will write I promise!) and I got inspired to write this prequel about how deamus got engaged. 

For @hpshipweeks

  • In all honesty, Dean and Seamus never talked much about getting married
  • After the war, both of them were just so relieved to survive the second wizarding war against Voldemort that simply being in each other’s company was enough. 
  • After the war ended they got a small, comfortable flat in muggle London. They talked about returning to Hogwarts but neither of them could face it. Seamus was still plagued by nightmares of the Carrows and Dean had no desire to return to the place where so many of his friends had lost their lives. 
  • Instead they worked. Seamus worked at a few local Irish pubs before getting a more permanent job at the leaky cauldron when Hannah Abbott took over. Dean studied at a muggle art college for a few years and gave lessons to children on the side. 
  • They were together and they were happy. 
  • Then one Sunday afternoon when they were lying on the couch in their pyjamas listening to the radio an announcement came on that caught their attention. 
  • The Irish Wizarding Government was holding a democratic vote on same-sex marriage. 
  • Dean looks over at Seamus whose eyes are glazed over as he takes in everything the news reporter is saying. 
  • To Dean it wasn’t that big of a deal.
  • It was amazing of course that Ireland was taking this massive step and he was thrilled about it. But Dean knew it meant so much more to Seamus. 
  • Seamus whose mother had been reluctant to accept her son’s sexuality for years, Seamus who, when they go to Ireland every few months to travel or visit his family, always insists that they can’t be too affectionate in public, even in the wizarding areas. 
  • So even though same-sex marriage had been legal in the British Wizarding World for years, this is the first time that Dean realises that he wants to get married. 
  • And he wants to marry Seamus. 
  • Later that night they’re lying in bed, facing one another when Seamus finally brings it up.
  • “I’m not proposing or anything” Seamus assures him lightly “But I was just wondering…I know we never talked about it, but is marriage something you want?” 
  • Dean smiles, “With you? Definitely.”
  • It all kicks off from there. 
  • Seamus keeps up to date with every debate and article about the referendum for months leading up to it. 
  • He praises the encouragement for the yes vote over breakfast, rants about the cruel tricks that the vote no party are playing to his colleagues. Dean watches on and smiles because he loves nothing more than when Seamus gets passionate about something. 
  • Dean catches his boyfriend smiling to himself when he’s on the phone several times and he can hear Mrs. Finnegan berating her son down the line, 
  • “Of course I’m voting yes Seamus! Don’t be absurd! And I’ve told all my friends that if they don’t vote yes then I’m never speaking to them again. Your father even bought those ‘vote yes’ broom sticker things even though he hasn’t flown in years! Now when are you coming home?” 
  • A week before the referendum, Seamus tells Dean over dinner that he’s flooing home to vote. 
  • Dean isn’t at all surprised but he can’t help but notice the hesitance in Seamus’s voice so he smiles.  
  • “Can I come too?” He asks 
  • Seamus looks up from his mashed potatoes and stares wide-eyed at Dean before breaking out into a wide grin. 
  • “Of course…yeah of course you can.” 
  • They floo to Seamus’s family home the morning before voting day. Mrs. Finnegan wasn’t lying about the vote yes sticker that her husband bought. Instead of putting it on his broom he has it displayed in the hall. If any muggles come over they just pretend that it’s a relic of some sorts which made Seamus snort. 
  • Dean and Seamus even go out themselves and buy handfuls of badges that say ‘Vote yes’ and ‘Make grá the law!’ on them. 
  • ‘Grá’ Dean learns means ‘love’ in Irish and so far that’s his favourite Gaelic word that Seamus has taught him. 
  • The next day Seamus is practically jumping up and down with excitement and he’s surprised that Dean is just as, or maybe even more excited than he is. 
  • They receive owls from Harry, Ginny, Ron, Hermione, Neville, Luna and Hanna Abbott wishing them luck and their hearts warm at their friends’ kindness. 
  • They floo to Dublin so Seamus can vote and together they spend the rest of the day walking the streets of the wizarding parts of the city. 
  • Seamus points out typical tourist attractions and rambles about facts and historical figures but admittedly Dean spends most of the time tuning him out in favour of looking at his boyfriend’s eyes light up when he talks
  • Dean can’t help the grin that spreads over his face when Seamus refuses to let go of his hand all day. In the evening they meet up with some of Seamus’s friends in their favourite pub and they stay there, laughing and joking and singing until closing time. 
  • Dean wishes every day could be like this one. With Seamus’s head on his shoulder, laughing every few minutes, a bright smile on his face and their fingers permanently intertwined. 
  • And he supposes that maybe after tomorrow, every day could be. 
  • So when the Wizarding Taoiseach announces that the yes vote has won the referendum with a majority of 62% the next day and Seamus wraps his arms around him and laughter and tears shake his body; Dean swallows his nerves, takes out the ring box from his trouser pocket, pulls away from Seamus with a shy smile and then gets down on one knee.

anonymous asked:

For juminzen, I would like to imagine that once both Jumin and Zen get really comfortable with each other in a relationship, they would subtly flirt with one another as much as possible. What are your headcanons on how Jumin and Zen would flirt with each other?

Oh yes! I’d like to think the two of them flirt very differently when they’re around others and when they’re alone. In the presence of others, flirting would be a total game of willpower. Who breaks first, that kind of thing.

Jumin’s flirting is all teasing Zen in front of others. I imagine Zen never gets 100% comfortable about people knowing about them because of him being a celebrity. He’s just concerned about his image. It’s not that he tries to hide his relationship with Jumin, I’d like to think that eventually the public will figure it out. He just doesn’t like that kind of attention. So Jumin will tease him in front of others. Call him pet names, imply things.

“Would you like me to get you another drink, honey?”

“Yes, isn’t his complexion lovely? Bruises easily though.”

This is bound to get Zen flushed from head to toe, usually sputtering some sort of cover-line. Jumin flirting this way is also his way of pasting giant “Property of Jumin Han” stickers all over Zen when they’re around other people.

Zen’s flirting is all physical. Jumin isn’t the best with words and he’s just daft sometimes. So using words isn’t the best way to get at him. Jumin is all power, control and dominance and thus Zen challenges that control by touching him, sometimes in plain sight of others, sometimes when nobody is looking. The point is to watch Jumin try to maintain his self-control when he is in the presence of others. His touches are very much like how a girl at a bar would flirt: lingering after lightly patting him on the shoulder while laughing at something he said, playing footsie with him under the table, resting his hand on the small of his back when chatting with another person. 

Jumin is a carnal creature of desire and as expected, he usually gives in first, dragging Zen to a restroom to make out with him or just throwing him into the car and driving home as fast as possible.

When they are alone, their flirting is basically just light sassy teasing, commenting about how they could be better in bed, commenting how they’ve maybe gained some weight, commenting how they’re a lousy kisser, cute little domestic fluffy crap like that.

Bowser lumbers up to your table at the local zinefest “I actually have all of these but I just wanted to say I find yr work really resonant”

You and Bowser go to get coffee after. You almost miss his embarrassed grimace as he carefully tries to navigate the cramped café.

He carries both of your drinks in his massive hands. He looks down at where you’re sitting. “None of these chairs will really work for me.”

Bowser gets your drinks to go and you walk to a local park. He sits down in the grass. “Thanks. Inside is a little rough for me.”

“I’m so sorry,” you say, feeling like a jerk. “It didn’t even occur to me.”
He takes the top of the drink off and blows on his chai latte.

“It’s fine,” he shrugs, taking a sip. “Most retail spaces are designed for…you know,” he gestures to you, “people.”
“I guess,” you shrug.

“To be honest,” he chuckles, leaning towards you conspiratorially, “I don’t get out a lot.”
You nod. “I mean, that’s fair! Outside is rough”

Neither of you says anything for about 30 seconds, which feels like a really long time.

Bowser looks at you. “Um this is always awkward but”
“Yeah, I know who you are,” you say, interrupting him. You smile reassuringly.
He exhales and his whole body relaxes. “Okay that’s a relief”

"So, zines huh?” You say, changing the subject.
Bowser’s face brightens. “Yeah! I kinda always wanted to make one but…you know…”

“Aww, you totally should. What kind of zines?”
He looks embarrassed but in a good way, like he isn’t used to receiving positive attention.

He laughs, trying to cut an awkwardness only he feels. “I can’t draw at all, but I always wanted to make a comic.” He finishes his drink.

Finally, you’re in familiar territory. You have this conversation a lot. “You probably draw well enough, but you could work with an artist.”

“Trust me.” Bowser lifts his hands and gives you a look. “These guys were not made to hold pens.”
You smirk. “What about a really big pen?”

Bowser laughs for real and you realize how quietly he’s been speaking to you. The warm melodic rumbling makes the ground shake a little bit.

At this moment, your smile feels too big for the space it’s in. You wash the ache down with a long drink of your americano.

Bowser’s head is still tilted back, eyes closed and smile wide.
You lean forward. “I’m sure you could find an artist to work with though”

"I guess,” he says absently, still smiling at the sun.
You’re both quiet for a beat.
“Are you doing a reptile thing?”
His eyes snap open.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” he says in a way that means he knows exactly what you’re talking about.
“Nuh uh. You were basking”

He’s already shifted his body back to the way he was before. You whip out your notebook and a pen and quickly sketch him enjoying the sun.

You try to put as much warmth in your attitude as you can, hoping that he gets that it’s just good-natured ribbing.
He laughs at the sketch.

“Oh come on,” he rolls his eyes, “I wasn’t doing it that much. AND you made me way hunkier than I actually am. I don’t look like that.”

You don’t really know what to say. You just met him and don’t want to invalidate how he sees himself or hit on him in an uncomfortable way.

Maybe Bowser picks up on how you’re feeling and maybe he doesn’t. What he does do is smile and say, “you’re right though. I was basking.”

Relieved that you didn’t end up processing about self-image with an almost total stranger, you go back to ribbing. “I knew it!”

He scoffs a little and points a huge, clawed finger at you. "I’d like to see you go one hour of being cold blooded without doing it.”

You lean back in a poor imitation of the sketch and sigh contentedly. “To be honest, it already feels pretty great as a human.”

You both stay like that for about 15 minutes, elbows in the grass, peacefully smiling faces tilted towards the sun.
“This is nice,” he says.

Your phone alarm interrupts the contended “mhm” buzzing from your lips. “Shit, I have to get back to the thing. I left a bunch of my stuff.”

Bowser nods and does that thing with his mouth that means “that sucks, but okay.” His face turns hopeful. “Need any help?”
You don’t, but…

“Some help would be great if you don’t mind,” you say a little sheepishly.
“No problem. I’m actually pretty strong,” he says with a wink.

Before you have a chance to swoon or faint or die because HE WINKED AT YOU, a hand the size of an armchair is offering to help you up.

You’re not even sure what to grab, so you wrap both your hands around Bowser’s pinky and he gently pulls you into a standing position.

Not only does Bowser help you with your stuff, he single-handedly cleans up the event space. Everyone trips over themselves to thank him.

“Pretty sure every one of those people would be happy to do art for your zine,” you say, following him back outside, a little bit jealous.

He puts the box of unsold zines in your trunk and scratches the back of his head. “Would you have any interest in collaborating on a thing?”

You’re usually pretty cautious about how you commit your time and energy, but you find yourself saying yes and meaning it.

Bowser’s resulting smile makes your knees weak. “Are you free this week?”
You close your trunk. “No, I have work. What about next weekend?”

He frowns. “I have to do this fight thing next weekend.”
“What neighborhood do you live in?”
“Bowser Castle”
“Oh, duh, right, of course.”

Bowser Castle is actually pretty close to your work, so you decide to just go afterwards on Thursday. You’re not totally sure how to say bye

You exchange LINE IDs (“I LOVE those stickers,” he says) and are thanking each other for a nice day when you just blurt out “can I hug you?"He’s taken aback and you immediately regret asking. You backpedal. "I just meant, are you a hug person or a handshake person or…”

“Oh, sorry, yeah…uh,” he stammers. “Sorry. Strangers ask me that a lot, and it’s really weird.”
“Oh my god, yeah totally, forget I asked.”

Bowser blushes a little. “Well, you’re not a stranger, so.” He starts to bend down towards you and stops. “How do I do this?”

You look up at him, eyeing his height and arms and shoulders. “That’s a good question.”
“I mean, without me picking you up or something.”

You picture him picking you up and it’s AMAZING but he looks embarrassed. “I have an idea,” you say, climbing onto the roof of your car.

It adds enough height that Bowser doesn’t have to bend down far for you to loosely wrap your arms around his neck. A big hand pats your back

He helps you back down and waits for you to drive away before heading home to Bowser Castle, the subtlest spring in his ungainly stride.

You find a new drawing in your notebook that night. It’s not so messy that you can’t tell it’s of you, beaming back at the afternoon sun.

roo-draws  asked:

Hello! I was wondering, do people prefer to buy stickers or buttons? Thank you! :D

Short answer 1: Yes.

Short answer 2: It depends.

This question is kind of like the “what should I make?” or “what’s better, this or this?” or “how much should I make of x product?” questions. It’s not a one-size-fits all approach, and it’d be irresponsible to not acknowledge that.

In general, stickers and buttons are small items that move pretty quickly for a variety of reasons. They’re generally small, generally cheap, generally low commitment, easy impulse buys when people are looking to spend that last bit of change. And they don’t cost a ton of money to make, nor take up a huge amount of space.

As to which people prefer, there are too many variables to be able to give you a definitive answer, including:

  • More specifics on the stickers/buttons - How big are they? How are they made? What material is used/how expensive are they? What exactly are we comparing? A set of small stickers printed on a home printer? A large professionally printed vinyl sticker? Diecut stickers? Self-cut stickers? A 1" button? A set of mini buttons? A large button? etc. etc.
  • The people and the location/geography - depending on where you are, what convention, what area, there are certain regional, perhaps even cultural, preferences for various kinds of products. Not to mention different people - different ages, levels of income, preferences, etc.
  • The art - the style, the content (fandom? original?) etc.
  • Competition - what stickers/buttons/other similar items are other vendors selling?

For anyone considering whether or not to make a certain type of product, you should consider at minimum these questions. How important each one is for you is, obviously, up to you.

1) Do I want this product to exist?

I’ll be honest, I’ve spent money making things just because it amused me/I thought it was a great idea. That’s not always necessarily a great business decision, and you can easily end up with things you’re trying to get rid of for a brief burning moment of LOL THIS IS A GREAT IDEA. However, for me personally, caring about the product is important. It’s why I personally do this. For some people, this is how they get into artist alleys in the first place. Yes, ultimately somebody else is going to buy the thing, but you’re making the thing. Hopefully you are making something you like. Do YOU want to make stickers, or do you want to make buttons? Or maybe you want to make both? If you can’t decide and you can try them both, why not?

2) Do other people sell this product at artist alleys/the events or venues I plan on doing?

This will give you an idea of how “popular” this type of product is, at least for those artists, and also give you a sense of how relatively easy or difficult it may be to source/create and whether or not it is appropriate merchandise for a particular event.

For example, stickers and buttons are prevalent almost everywhere, and some people offer ONLY that type of product at their table - so it’s something that can work at that level. On the flip side, if the product you’re considering isn’t found anywhere, it could be a great potential standout opportunity - or maybe there’s a reason it’s not found anywhere (too expensive? Impractical? Illegal, maybe not permitted by a particular venue/event? No market?). Either way, something to look further into. It’s possible a venue could ban stickers, for example, if there is a concern about people sticking them all over the place.

3) How will I make this product?

Where will you source the supplies or the service to make it? How difficult will it be? How much labour/time/money will it require? In the case of buttons VS stickers, stickers are arguably easier to produce/source - at bare minimum, you need some sort of adhesive stock and some way of getting your image on it (drawing, printing, etc.). In the case of buttons, you do need more specialized equipment, though both items are popular enough that it’s pretty easy to find suppliers even if you don’t want to shell out and own the equipment yourself.

You can check out our resources as a starting point to find services and suppliers!

4) What is my artwork most suited for/How will I get the most out of my art?

Are you repurposing existing artwork or making completely new art specifically for these products? How much time do you have to do this? How well does the artwork work for these applications? In general, buttons are usually circular and pretty small, so if you have some elaborate illustration, you may be losing a ton of detail. A sticker, with more potential flexibility in shape and size, might show off your work better. If you’re drawing something specifically for use on these products, button designs generally aren’t as transferable to other products; sticker designs might be more flexible. Again, this is dependent on what you are doing.

If your budget/time allows, try both, track your costs/sales/inventory, and see how you feel about both. Again, you may find, depending on the art, the event, and what you yourself are comfortable with or want to see, you’ll adjust your product range over time.

Here are a few other posts that might help you in figuring out your approach.

Questions about stickers

The unsolvable question of how much do I print and How much of anything should I make to sell?
