taako and lup play switcheroo with each other because lup wants to make sure kravitz is a trustworthy boyfriend for her brother and she is also veeeery persuasive but like it doesn’t in any universe work because barry knows immediately it’s taako and is like “hey taako where’s lup” and he’s like “oh uh she’s making sure my man isn’t a total dickweed” and he’s like “sure sure wanna play cards?” meanwhile kravitz catches on really quickly but plays along and takes her on a really nice date and is a total gentleman the whole time then at the end of the night he’s like “well it was nice to get to know you, lup, shall i take you home?” and she’s like HECK I WAS THE ONE WHO WAS BAMBOOZLED and she’s like “um no ill catch a cab and get home on my own” and he opens a portal and she’s like “oh shit, psyche, take me home big boy” and as kravitz fetches his actual datemate she’s just in the background with barry pointing at her own eyes and then at him in a threatening way but tbh the way kravitz sweeps taako off his feet when he sees him and is like not even a little upset about the little ploy for sure warms her up to him
A messy concept of what my version of Blue would’ve looked like as a fledgeling in my Jurassic Feathers AU. A muddy, messy, bossy child who loves her two dads.
I screwed up on her face so she looks more like a tyrannosaur chick, but trust me, she’s a Velociraptor. She’s based off Peregrine Falcon chicks and has yet to grow her facial feathers in or refine her motor skills, but be patient with her. She’ll learn.
I’ll upload her siblings and a fixed version of this later.
What people say:
"My niece's nephew's grandson was attacked and mauled by a dog without warning!"
What people mean:
"I am ignorant of dog body language and uneducated on dog behavior and I don't know how to read a dog's stress signals to see the subtle warnings that a dog is getting uncomfortable and reaching its threshold and about to lash out aggressively."
Also written as a gift for @rangergirl3 as a very big thank you to her for being the most wonderful beta reader for my mini bang fic. And also for just being an insanely wonderful person in general too!! :)
When Keith started coming to, the first thing he noticed was the cold and he grimaced. He’d always hated the cold. When he was living in the desert he would spend the nights wrapped in as many blankets as he could find to keep himself warm when he slept. He missed those blankets right now.
The second thing he noticed was the smell. Clean and sterile. Like a hospital. Keith’s grimace deepened. He’d spent more than enough time in hospital emergency rooms throughout his childhood. He wasn’t eager to be back in one. But there was a strange undertone to the smell; something alien. Maybe he was in the Castle’s infirmary, he did have a splitting headache now that he thought about it. He was probably just waking up from being in one of the healing pods.
But… he didn’t remember an attack of any sort. The last thing he remembered was being at that boring party the latest planet they had freed’s royal family had thrown for them. Everything had been fine. Could he have been so badly injured that his memory had been affected too? He supposed it was possible. Then again, the last time he’d been in a healing pod he’d stepped out of it before his body had even had a chance to register the cold. Why was it taking so long to let him out? There was only one way to find out. He opened his eyes.
And blinked up at a completely unfamiliar ceiling.
O come ye wayward brothers, Bereft of hearth and home, Beneath yon burning star there lies, A haven for the bold […] Though storms of blood approach ye, Hells open, Heavens weep, No goodly soul need ever fear, The measure of His Reach —
We all go through things that are tough and uncomfortable. Like changes at work or home that can make us feel restless. I want to encourage you to take those feeling to him as Mathew 11:28-30 says
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
God is moving and open doors that no one can shut and shutting door no one can open and sometimes all we can do is be still while HE moves mountains on our behalf.
1k of shameless fluff. The morning after the night before.
Alistair knows he’s probably grinning like an idiot, and he tries to school
his face into something less incriminating. It’s just that he never
expected it - any
it. The softness of her skin, even with the callouses on her hands
and the scars he spent so long tracing. The way she spoke to him. The
fact she seemed happy to laze in his - their? That’s really a conversation they should be having sometime - bedroll and wrap herself round him like
a cheerful, gorgeous limpet. Not that he was much better at letting
go of her when it came to it, world to save or not.
He remembers her
squirming out of his arms, despite his protests, grinning at him. And
there’s a word he doesn’t get to use often about Morgana - but
there, bright, happy and unashamed, she made him want to stop and
stare. Maybe stay another hour. Or, you know, forever. He didn’t
it’s selfish that he wants it, all of it. He wants to spend every
morning with Morgana in his arms, soft and satisfied and smiling at
most of all, more than how it all felt… She loves him. She
