Munch. Munch. Munch.

You were stuffing your face with cookies, and ice cream, and pizza. Yes, all three of those. Yes, at the same time.

Sure, a few months ago you would have judged something like this as disgusting, super unhealthy, a great recipe for a heart disease… But, after countless weeks of kale, cabbage, spinach, carrots, lean meat, and lentils… you just didn’t care anymore. You wanted all the junk food, now.

The pregnancy book was staring at you from the table, and you stared back, glared even as your lips wrapped around a spoon of chocolate ice-cream. Take this, you stupid book.

The problem with receiving a Good Classical Education is that I’m going to college in a few weeks and this is going to be my fourth time reading the Lattimore translation of the Illiad for school.

  • Client: Yes, we're just here for the rabies shot.
  • Me: Ok. Everything looks great on exam, let's get the vaccine and then you can go.
  • Client: Oh. Can you cut her nails?
  • Me: Sure. We can do that.
  • Client: What about the vomiting?
  • Me: I'm sorry?
  • Client: She vomits. Every day at least 3 times.
  • Me: oh, you didn't mention that-
  • Client: Also she's itchy. She scratches her ears all the time. I think she has a food allergy because she gets hives after she eats.
  • Me: We definitely need to address those things. Let's book you a longer appointment slot because-
  • Client: Were getting a new puppy so actually we need all of her vaccines done. I can't come back, the puppy flies in tomorrow. I need it now.
  • Me: There is no way we can address everything today, I'm sorry. And if she's ill we shouldn't vaccinate her.
  • Client: Doesn't matter. I have to pick my son up from lacrosse in 10 minutes so we'll just have to come back. So we didn't really do anything today so it's no charge?
Visualization in Witchcraft: The Basics

I’ve gotten many, many requests for more information for beginning witches or those who are just curious, and I’ve decided it’s time I start writing and posting such things more often. This article will be (one of) the first in a series where I’ll talk about common beginner issues an techniques for those just starting out, skills that I personally found useful early on, and anything else that comes up. My plan is mostly to write based on questions I receive, and address topics as needed. Here we go.

Today, I’ll be writing about visualization, and I’ll just be explaining the basics as I see them. I recently got a message from someone interested in studying witchcraft who was concerned about how to begin practicing without having to buy things. This is a common sentiment, and I get questions about it a lot. There’s not too many authors who address it, except in passing. The books that do talk about practicing witchcraft without tools often suggest learning to astrally project and creating a sort of sacred space in the astral realm containing all the tools you might need. This never seemed practical to me, as many people who are just starting out won’t necessarily be able to fully project, and heck, even many experienced witches never quite pick up the skill. 

A far better approach than trying to astrally project right away would be to study visualization and develop it as a skill. Visualization is the art of manipulating your own imagination in order to create vivid experiences within your own mind. This practice sharpens your intuition and magical acuity. Even many rituals and spells in books (with or without suggesting tools) will call for the witch to visualize, though they may not call it that, and sometimes say “imagine” instead. 

It’s perhaps best explained by way of examples, and can take many forms with varying levels of complexity. Sometimes, you might want to visualize something as existing within your physical space. In other words, you would want to strongly imagine it appearing to you as if it were physically in front of you. In one particular ritual I used to perform regularly (it was for banishing), part of it entailed my strongly imagining a pentagram in a particular color left in the wake of my ritual actions. That’s a form of visualization. This may sound like a simple thing, but it does take practice. 

After a while, though, I got to the point where yes, I could “see” the pentagrams surrounding me in the ritual, though I knew it was actually a visualization sprung from my imagination rather than a physical object hanging in the air. Techniques like that are pretty common, and they aren’t a new thing - books written in the Victorian era and earlier will often recommend doing this, though the word visualization itself wasn’t often used. 

Many witches and magicians incorporate visualization into simple symbol and sigil magick. In the image below, I’ve listed the planetary symbols and associated colors. While many people, when working with symbols, would assume they’d need to carve, draw, or sketch the symbol on a physical talisman or something similar, there are other ways.

One technique using visualization would be to trace the symbol in the air with your finger. You would visualize light in a particular color (of your choice, or relevant in some way) flowing from your fingertips and forming the symbol hanging in the air. The length of time you’ll be able to visualize will likely vary based on how long you’ve practiced, as well as whether there’s anything breaking your concentration. In some settings, I can only “hold” the symbol in my mind for a few seconds before it’s interrupted by something in my environment. Conversely, I can think of a ritual I recently did with a partner that involved visualizing symbols. We did this in a quiet room and with much mental preparation, so I was able to “see” the symbols for much longer than in other situations.

All of that, of course, is going to be done with your eyes open, visualizing objects in your physical space. Things can get pretty interesting if you close your eyes, though! Obviously, you wouldn’t be moving around doing a ritual with closed eyes, but it’s possible to work magick while sitting (or even lying down!) with your eyes closed performing an intense visualization. Some people find this easier than open eye visualization, but for others, it’s the reverse. It just depends on the person.

One mistake I made when learning this type of visualization was trying to make my visuals too complex too quickly, not realizing that these things take time, and complicated, immersive scenes are something that has to develop slowly. One way of beginning is to start with, again, symbols, visualizing them projected on the back of your eyelids. 

Simple shapes, like line drawings, are great to begin with, too. Slowly add color and depth, and eventually you’ll be able to build a proper scene inside your mind. This could consist of imagining the workspace you’ve always dreamed of with everything you would need for any kind of spell, but for many witches, the visualization is the spell itself. I find that method more productive than just imagining tools. Experimentation is key, and you’ll find something that works for you, but one common method of using visualization in spellwork would be to visualize the goal of the spell manifesting in an efficacious manner. For example, if I were visualizing as part of a spell to help a friend’s wedding go smoothly with no mishaps or delays, I would visualize exactly that happening.

There is, naturally, a strong connection between visualization and scrying, and usually improving your skills in one will improve your skills in the other. In the image below, I discuss how scrying can often be much more than just seeing images, and that is true of visualization as well - you can experience any sensation or impression via visualization, be it auditory, visual, olfactory, or really anything else.

Hand to Hand Destiel


//anonymous asked:
Sorry about your leviathan situation. :< (ik the feel) Maybe you could write some fluffy blushy awkward hand holding destiel? WHATEVER MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER MAN *hugs*

about: Just a short, fluffly fluff fic about Cas asking to hold hands with Dean for the first time.

~~~~~~~

Cas and Dean had been officially together for about a year now. Even though everyone knew they already had fallen madly for one another since they first saw each other and Cas had gotten Dean out of Hell, giving him the hand print. Now that the rest of the world went “finally!” when the hunter and angel announced they are together. The two could finally at least have one good thing happen in their lives. The problem was that now they could finally show their feelings for each other in public and in private, it was almost like they didn’t know how after so long of denying themselves both the greatest of pleasures when it comes to having a lover but even more importantly, the simplest of pleasures.

Dean was walking around the library, looking for new books, when out of nowhere, Cas popped up behind Dean, almost causing him to knock over the bookshelf.

“ Whoa! Jesus, Cas! You almost scared the living day lights out of me.”

Cas tilted his head and Dean knew that his little angel was confused.

“ Not literally, Cas.”

“Shhh!!!!”

A nearby librarian shushed them as Cas whispered softly, earning a glare from her. Dean chuckled then raised his brow at Castiel.

“ So, did you find any new books for the case?”

“ Yes, but that is not what I came over here for.”

“ Then what do you need?”

Cas open and closed his mouth a few times, squinting his eyes as he tried to think of how to explain this to Dean.

“ I wish to do the thing couples do when they are together, to show affection. Skin,on skin contact”

Dean blushed lightly,making his light freckles pop out slightly more as he looked around, making sure no one else heard that.

“ C-Cas, can you at least wait till we get back to the bunker? I mean I want to do that too but we have research to do. “

“ No Dean. I want it now, please. I know we have never done it but as seeing we are now bonded I think it is very much acceptable to do this act in public and in private.”

“ P-Public!?”

“ Shhh!” The librarian said

Dean lowered his voice, running his hand through his short, dirty blonde hair.

“ Man ,Cas, never took you for the kind that could get off in public. I guess you learn something new everyday.”

Cas tilted his head in confusion then he stared blankly at Dean, his tan face slowly becoming a very red shade when he realized what Dean thought he was implying. Cas shook his head then cleared his throat. Making Dean smirk lightly.

“ Dean, I think you don’t understand what I meant. I wish to hold the hands.”

Dean blinked, staring at cas then couldn’t help but laugh as quietly as he could, covering his mouth so that he didn’t make the already mad librarian at more pissed off at them.

“ Cas, I love you honey. You crack me.”

Dean smiled then slowly reached for Castiel’s hand. They slowly intertwined their hands and they both felt their face’s heat up and their heart’s beat fast. Cas smiled wide then leaned up slightly and kissed Dean’s cheek.

“ Thank you Dean.”

“ No problem my Honeybee.”

Dean and Cas spent the rest of the day holding hands in the library. They of course got a few looks from people and a few mumbles but Dean would just shoot them a glare and Cas would gently nuzzle Dean’s shoulder every time. As the two sat across from each other, their arms out stretched so they could continue to hold hands. Dean smiled and looked at cas shyly.

“ T-This is really nice. We need to do this more often.”

Cas only smiled lovingly at Dean and nodded then gently moved Dean’s hand to his lips, kissing the knuckles softly.

“Illyrian Publishing, how can I help you?”

Nesta rolled her eyes at her own chipper voice, trying to pay attention to the person on the other end of the line.

“I’m sorry ma'am, Spring Court Publishing is no longer in this building … Well Illyrian Publishing bought them out … Yes ma'am.”

Nesta leaned back in her chair and sent a prayer up to whatever deity was listening to save her from this stupid job. It was her first day and this was her eleventh call from someone asking her for Spring Court Publishing.

Did no one read the papers anymore? Illyrian Publishing had bought them out two months ago after a huge scandal between the CEO and some government official.

Which was how Nesta ended up there working as a damn assistant when she had a degree in English.

“Just work your way up to the top, Nesta. They have positions opening all the time, but you have to start somewhere,” her sister Feyre had said.

Feyre’s boyfriend Rhys was best buds with the CEO of Illyrian Publishing, Cassidy, Chase, Connor… some name that started with a C, Nesta really didn’t care. Well when Rhys heard they needed a new assistant because the other one, some girl named Ianthe, got a little handsy with the other employees, Feyre insisted she apply for the position.

So here she was listening to some woman rant about how Spring Court Publishing published some of her favorite author’s books and Illyrian better do the same or she’ll file a complaint and blah blah blah.

“Yes ma'am, I understand … No ma'am, we haven’t gotten rid of any of the authors previously taken care of by Spring Court.”

“Excuse me,” a male voice spoke suddenly over Nesta’s shoulder.“

“Gimme one second,” she told them without turning in her chair. “No ma'am, I can’t give you any information on when that particular author’s next book will come out … Well quite frankly ma'am I highly doubt Spring Court Publishing ever gave out that information either.”

“Excuse me,” the voice repeated.

“Could you just wait? Please just hold on a second,” Nesta snapped back at them, her temper rising. “Ma'am you are not entitled to any of that information but I’m sure if you … Well you know what name-calling isn’t going to get you anywhere!”

The person behind her laughed lowly and she growled at them without turning.

“Look ma'am,” Nesta all but shouted into her headset, “You aren’t going to bully me into finding you any information about when your next werewolf erotica book is coming out, so either send an email to your author specifically or learn to wait, but don’t call back! Thank you, have a nice damn day!”

Nesta ripped her headset off and slammed it down on the desk before putting her head in her hands and groaning.

“Well it looks like you’re having a great first day,” the male voice spoke up again.

Nesta lifted her head and swiveled slowly in her chair with an expression that any sane person would be running away from.

“Can I help you?” She spat, briefly noting that the man leaning casually against her desk was handsome as hell with deep golden brown skin and wavy brown hair that reached the nape of his neck. He was dressed nicely in slacks and a button up with the sleeves rolled to his elbows. His eyes were hazel and bright, matching his shit-eating grin.

“I just wanted to come and say hello,” he said brightly, obviously amused by her annoyance. “I heard it was your first day and thought I’d meet the new girl. The new, very beautiful girl, might I add.”

Nesta’s bitch face did not waver.

“Hi,” she deadpanned.

The stranger only grinned wider.

“So I take it your calls have been less than exciting so far.”

“Wow you’re really observant. You should become a detective.”

“Nah.” He shook his head. “I’ve got the best job in the world.”

“Well lucky you,” she mumbled. “It must be nice to get a degree and actually work in the job you want.”

“Oooo,” he sing-songed. “Do I detect some bitterness?”

Nesta only rolled her eyes.

“So I take it you haven’t dreamed of being a desk secretary all your life.”

“No. I want to write. And edit. And actually have a real job at this damn company but noooo, Feyre says I have to work my way up from the bottom. I had a perfect 4.0 GPA and now I’m at this damn desk answering calls from stupid people and I have to pretend to be chipper all the freaking time!”

Nesta only realized her voice had escalated when she felt everyone’s eyes on her in the lobby. She gulped, only to look back up at the stranger and see him still smiling down at her as if she were the best thing he’d ever seen.

“You know you and Feyre don’t resemble each other all that much,” was all he said.

Nesta blanched.

“You know Feyre?”

“Oh yeah. She’s dating my idiot best friend for some reason.”

Nesta just looked up at him, her eyes widening as the puzzle pieces slowly slipped into place. If he knew Rhys and Feyre, and Rhys said his friend was the CEO of Illyrian Publishing and hence how she got this job, then…

“Oh fuck me.”

“I’d love to. But let me introduce myself first. I’m Cassian.”

Dear journal,

Today I did nothing special. I worked down in the book shop while him and Teddy were working on their motorbikes. Every now and them, between placing two books, I would look throught the window and look at my two boys. Sirius was pointing parts of the bikes while Teddy listened to him carefully. I was waiting for a book delivery today. It was the new chapter of this popular serie that every teenager loved. I was putting price stickers on the back of a few books when a young man in his twenties came in, wearing a post uniform.

“Hi! Are you M. Lupin?” He asked.

“Yes that’s me. Is this my new book delivery?”

“It is! I just need you to sign here… and on there.” The man said, leaving the box on the counter and showing me a paper.

I quickly signed and the man looked down blushing.

“Is this your own book shop?” He asked.

“It is. I started it a few years ago and since then people around here love it!” I said.

“This is great! Are you hum.. doing all this alone?”

“Yes. Even though I get a lot of help from my son and my husband but you could call it a family business!”

“Oh right.. You have a husband.. I was about to ask you out.” The man blushed, chuckling from embarassement.

“Oh.. I’m sorry.” I said, not really knowing what to say.

“It’s okay.. Well i’m glad you have a family that loves you. I have to go and deliver other stuff but it was nice meeting you.” He smiled.

“You too. Have a good day.” I said, trying to make him less sad.

“Thank you.” He smiled, leaving my store.

A few minutes later, 3 teenagers walked in, asking for the new chapter I just recieved. I loved giving books to kids so I could share my passion with them. When I was closing the shop, Sirius walked in and hugged me from behind.

“How was today?” He asked.

“Oh it was good. Sold a few books and got the delivery I was waiting for. And the delivery man flirted with me!” I giggled.

“What?!”

I looked at him weirdely, wondering why he had such a reaction.

“Not that i’m suprised, I just want you all for myself.. I don’t want other man flirting with you!” He said, hugging me thighter.

“You’re so cute when you’re jealous!” I laughed.

“Me? Jealous? Pfff! I just want you all to myself s'all..” He laughed too, kissing my neck.

“Dads? Can we order some pizza?” Teddy asked, from upstairs.

“Oh Yes! I need some pizza after this long day of mechanics!” Sirius said, taking bridal style and carying me to the sofa upstairs to cuddle me.

We had a movie night with pizza and cuddling. My favorite kind of nights.

Could you do one where The reader is in a bookstore or something and dan sees her and trys to get a convo started with her but isn't really good at it because he's distracted by her cuteness

Dan walked into his favourite bookstore, closing the door behind him and lowering his umbrella. As usual, it was raining in London, and he was happy to find some shelter. He put his umbrella in the assigned area near the door and ran a hand through his hair, hoping it didn’t look too ridiculous from all the moisture in the air. He took a deep breath and enjoyed the lovely scent that always floated around the store and made him feel instantly more relaxed. He walked down the three small steps into the main area and greeted the cashier, a 40-something woman he’d gotten acquainted with over the many months he’d been coming here. He knew the bookstore like the back of his hand and knew exactly where he wanted to go, walking straight to the fantasy corner. He let his fingers run past the back of the books on the shelf until the touched one he hadn’t seen before. He reached to grab it when at that moment another hand reached out for the same book. He let out a soft yelp as he had pretty much gotten jump scared by this sudden hand, and took a few steps back to look at the figure next to him. To his surprise, it was a girl, and a very beautiful one at that. “I’m so sorry, I didn’t mean to scare you.” She said to him, pulling her hand back. Dan felt a blush creep onto his cheeks and he waved her apology off. “Oh no, no need to be sorry, I was not paying attention. We were reaching for the same book huh?” Dan said, taking it from the shelf and handing it to her. “I guess so, yes. It wasn’t here yet when I stopped by last week.” The girl said, stroking the cover with her fingers the way Dan always did when he encountered a new book. “Do you come here often?” She asked, glistening eyes looking up at him, making him blush even more than he already was. “Yeah, I eh… I try. Every Thursday.” Dan nodded, leaning against the shelving unit in an attempt to look cool and relaxed. Judging by her soft giggling, it probably wasn’t as cool as he thought it was. “I come here every Tuesday. Must be why I hadn’t seen you here before. I surely would have remembered you.” The girl said, and she winked at him. Winked. Oh god. Dan felt he started to sweat out from the sudden nerves and he scratched himself on the neck.

“I eh, yeah, I’m sure I would have remembered you as well.” Dan said, nodding to himself, raising his eyebrows as if to say ‘for sure’. The girl chuckled and looked down at the book again, handing it over to him. “You were first I guess, I’ll ask Marlene if she order another one.” She said, giving him another smile and she started to walk towards the cashier. Dan panicked, he wanted the book but he also wanted to know this girl’s name. “No wait, you can have it!” Dan said, quickly running after her and he stopped her in his tracks. “What’s your name?” He asked. “Y/N. What’s yours?” The girl asked, tilting her head to the side slightly. “Dan.” He answered, reaching out his hand and when she took it, he shook her hand. “I’ll buy it for you.” Dan said, a bit surprised by his own offer, and Y/N seemed to be as well. “That’s really nice but I don’t really feel comfortable with a stranger buying me a book.” She said, and as he handed her the book she put it on the counter. “But you can buy me a coffee sometime.” She told him, paying for the book and picked up the bag the cashier had put it in. She took out a pen and wrote her name and number down on the receipt, handing it to him. “I have to rush, but call me, okay?” She smiled at him, saying goodbye to Marlene before leaving the shop, leaving Dan by himself. He looked down at the receipt, noticed she dotted her i’s with hearts, and realized that he was never ever going to throw that receipt away.

Permission Not to Write

There are times when you have nothing to say. You’ve just finished a big project or you’re smarting from a series of rejections. You’ve run dry and that’s perfectly normal. This is your permission not to write anything for a while. It’s also a reminder that you shouldn’t panic if you feel like this goes on for “too long.” Other people may need less time than you do to process. You shouldn’t be looking around, watching other people to determine how much time you need to fill up the creative well again.

If you’ve been doing it right, you should feel like you put everything of yourself into your last book or project. You should feel like you want to hide yourself because you’ve revealed so much. You may feel like you’ve given everything to the project and you’re going to have to reinvent yourself before you have anything new to write. This is all normal and good.

Yes, there are writers who never take a day off. Yes, there are writers who manage to write six books every year. Yes, there are writers who seem to publish like clockwork, never skipping a beat.

There are also wonderful writers who need ten years between books. There are writers who write a book a year for twenty years and then suddenly face a dry spell and don’t know how to deal with it because it never happened before. I imagine most of us fall somewhere in between.

Your editor or agent may try to pressure you to produce something new, but if they’re good, they probably won’t do this. They’ve seen lots of writers who experience lots of reactions to publication. Even if you have a contract for your next book, the best thing to do is to let your heart decide when to start writing again.

The truth is that creativity isn’t a widget. As much as our capitalistic world wants to pretend that it is, a book isn’t a commodity in the way that other things are. For one thing, if a book from author A isn’t available, you can’t just easily replace it with a book from author B. Your fans will be waiting for you.

You can’t pressure your creativity into producing the next great book. You can nudge it and maybe you can learn some tricks to get it going again, but it’s also all right to just say no. You have permission not to write from me. I’ll give you a certificate if you like, and you can hang it on your wall.

Oh oh oh how about a scenario where team 7 spies on a training session between kakashi and his s/o and discovers they're together and confront them about it? I think that'd be super cute ^.^

Absolutely! <3


Team 7 Discovering that Kakashi and His S/O are Together

“Ever notice that Kakashi cuts our missions really short?” Sakura asked.

“Hn.” Sasuke grunted. Sasuke was uninterested in Kakashi’s own personal affairs, but even he knew that is was suspicious that their lessons and missions weren’t as long as they should have been.

“I wonder what he does after that….” Naruto thought. His imagination didn’t go any further than thinking of Kakashi sensei looking at those pervy books, but that’s what he was placing whatever money he had on.

“You really need to wonder? He probably just reads those books.” Sakura voiced his thoughts.

“I don’t know. He might be doing something else.” Sasuke was skeptical as he voiced what he thought his sensei was doing. “Probably buying those books.”

“Did you wanna spy on him?” Sakura asked the two boys. If they could pinpoint the reason why Kakashi sensei was always leaving early, it would open a whole new avenue for them to tease him.

“Yes.” Both Naruto and Sasuke responded.

They walked around the village, tearing Naruto away from Ichiraku Ramen and Sakura from the clothing store. The little baked goods shops were testing even Sasuke’s resolve on this mission of sorts. It wouldn’t be the first time they’d be spying on their sensei, but they agreed it wouldn’t be the last.

“Ugh!” Naruto threw his hands up in the air, fed up and frustrated. “There’s no point! We-”

“Oh, wow…” Teal eyes were glued on the training field.

____ landed on their back, feeling Kakashi’s weight against them. Both adults were gasping for air. That sparring match took more than a little bit out of them. Kakashi’s hands wrapped around ____’s wrists, his knees pushing into the dirt next to their hips. Heated breaths exchanged as Kakashi spoke up.

“About time you gave in.” Kakashi’s headband was slipping off his head. He’d never use his Sharingan against ____. He’d never dream of it.

“Like hell…” ____ gasped, taking in a gulp of air before talking again. “I’d give in. Look. I still have… some fight left in me.” ____ struggled against the former Anbu’s weight, trying to free themselves from his grasp.

Kakashi let out a soft chuckle. “Sure. You’re cute when you try so hard.”

____ bit back a blush and looked away, only to see Team 7 approaching from behind, Naruto and Sakura in the lead. Kakashi followed their gaze and let out a tired sigh, though it wasn’t that hard to do it.

“This is why you cut the missions so early!” Naruto shouted.

“Oh, geez…” Kakashi gasped as he got off of ____, helping them up.

“Wait… ____-sensei? Are you and Kakashi-sensei together?” Sakura asked.

____’s face was still firmly holding the same blush as they looked at Kakashi, searching for an answer.

“Oh, hey!” Kakashi retied his headband, keeping it from falling completely off. “There’s something I need to tell you!”

wait what did i miss?? confirmation day p2?

Confirmation Day part 1 is when Darren admitted that he had a gf on the radio for the first time and Chirs held hands with W in Disney in France.

Confirmation Day 2: Chris finally after avoiding it for 4 years, confirmed W as his BF on the Sirius XM interview. He did it in the most akward manner. He said he was a screenwriter despite the fact that up until this, he was known as a Producer.  

This interview was taped the same day as the new pick of M&D kissing.

To be honest, I know people are upset. I actually cannot stop laughing. The PR component to this nonsense has never been more clear or more transparent.

Why is this happening? Multiple reasons,. Yes, Darren has a new band and a new show. Chris has a new book and a new show. So that is partially the issue.

But more, a lot of damage control is needed. Mia has a boyfriend.  He’s impossible to ignore.  And Darren has been acting up over and over and over again. And Chris has failed to sell Chill for quite some time.  So strategies were formulated to try and promote the PR relationships. Likely between teams, as they have been doing for years.

But honestly, what i think is really responsible is called pay out.  2 people have been parading around for years as the SOs.  M has a contract, make no mistake about that.  W likely has been offered similar things, likely he has a contract as well.  This is them making sure to cash in on whatever is owned before the end (whenever that may be, I am certainly not making a prediction).  Mia’s is related to music- that was always the goal.  And do not be shocked if she plays a role in Computer Games.  I fully expect it.  Will I am assuming would like an in into the entertainment industry, i guess now as a screenwriter?

The other thing i think is happening. And something Chris does. A LOT. He is taking some of the burden from Darren. They are in this together. Equally. And in the end, I truly believe Chris wants to shoulder equal blame. Now they both have overtly lied. No one can say one is more to blame. 

And honestly, if you blame one more than the other that is a mistake.  What they have done is a choice they have made to protect each other and their relationship.  Chris would not have played along if he was not completely in love. and Chris has as much to loose as Darren when the truth comes out. To ignore that is a mistake.

PR PR PR. This is nothing more than PR. And anyone who isn’t shaking their head and questing everything is doing themselves a disservice.

Characters A & B keep in touch after Character A pulls through, but both are astonished to find that Character B has scars slowly appearing precisely the same pattern as Character A but on the opposite side of their body.

Character A could have handled Character B coming back from parties at weird hours of the night, but when Character B starts developing strange habits - anxiety around mirrors, eating a lot of raw sushi, sleepwalking, keeping their nails short, ext - Character A starts to wonder if there isn’t something more supernatural to their potluck roommate.
  78. ”Being Tailed AU”: Character A is going to a local tailor / seamstress to get their suit / dress tailored to their specific measurements since it seems that it isn’t fitting quite right.

Soon after they collapse and Character B, someone who actually followed them there and posed as the tailor, takes them away.
  79. Character A is a ghost who haunts the dorms at Character B’s college. Not insanely happy that they’re rooted to a college dorm for the rest of their spirit’s existence, but Character A enjoys the shenanigans and always makes sure that everyone in Character B’s dorm is doing okay. 
  80. ”The Dragon Child AU”: Character A is something of an abnormality, even in a world of magic.

After overhearing news that a dragon had been spotted flying over a town/village/city/metropolis/ext. Character A thinks that by meeting a real dragon, they may find something about themselves, maybe having a chance to meet others like them. With Character B, Character A’s childhood friend who has a ‘knack’ for telling the future, and Character C, a thief who’s running from the law, Character A sets off to find out who they really are, where they came from, and if they’re alone in the world. 
  81. Time travel has been invented, and to be able to do so, characters must get a time visa, a glowing tattoo that eventually expires. Each time they travel to a different time, the visa will take something from the characters.. (Personally, I used part of the soul.) When your visa expires, the warm yellow glow becomes a harsh red tint. They can be jailed for continuing to travel without renewing visas.
  82. “I voice act for a Video Game company, and one of their newest and most raved-about RP games will be released in about a month or so, and we only finished about half of my script before I came down with a severe case of bronchitis that disallowed me from continuing. There is one other option that would save the game and the company, but I really don’t know if I’m strong enough in every way to contact my identical twin to ask for help - especially after what happened.” AU
  83. Character A goes to the local technology store to get a new phone, only to walk out finding that they already have a number of texts from an unknown number, consisting of nonsensical series of numbers. Frightened, they reenter the store and ask the attendant who had helped them load the phone, Character B, for help. B is surprised, as the number was brand new and should not be available. The two attempt to find what the numbers mean.
  84. This is a classic coffeeshop story: Character A is a barista in a café, while Character B is the smitten customer who is thrilled that they were lucky enough to get Character A’s phone number written on their coffee cup. Later that evening, they waited for Character A to answer their phone in anticipation, only to be greeted by a… sex hotline? (Character A could either be wanting to mess with Character B or Character A legitimately works for the hotline to get some extra cash)
  85. “Home Is Where I’m With You AU”: When Character A’s spouse files for a divorce, they suddenly find themselves struggling to keep their family of three financially afloat as a single parent. It’s not long before Character A has to move to smaller, more affordable housing, which is where they meet their neighbor, Character B, who is also single parent. Soon, Character A’s kids start referring to Character B as their “other parent,” and their kid(s) as their “sibling(s).” As Character A and Character B’s kids grow closer, so do they. Between picking the three kids up from school, to taking the other’s child to ballet/soccer/sports practice, something like romance begins to form.
  86. ”Herbs and Sigils AU”: Character A is a witch who has recently moved from the countryside – where they were able to collect most of their ingredients from nature – to the bustling city. Character A has to adjust to finding somewhere that sells sage, thorns, and hemlock. (Hint: it’s a lot harder than you would think.) Character B is a small business owner that’s runs a struggling apothecary next to a coffee shop, which is run by the charismatic and flirty Character C. At this coffee shop, Character C runs their store like a typical coffee place with add-ins like espresso shots or caramel syrup, but after meeting Character B and becoming business partners – better servicing the magical community = $$$ – Character C has started to offer add-ins like confidence, charisma, or intelligence. While Character A adjusts to their new life in the city, Character B and Character C take it upon themselves to start teaching Character A about how to not seem like a wide-eyed tourist; Characters A and B try to teach Character C more about the magic using community. 
  87. “In our world, people who lie are few and far between. Because we are so technologically advanced, we have a way of tracking those who do: through brands. With each lie told, a single brand is scorched onto every pant leg a person owns, giving them the name of ‘Burnt Prides.’ The fewer brands, the more revered you are…almost as if you’re a virgin. If you’re covered in brands…the more feared you are, and the more wanted you are by the authorities” AU
  88. ”Across Oceans AU”: In high school, Character A set a goal for themselves to become fluent in another language after a relative of theirs comment about how “American children are too dumb to learn another language.” In Character A’s third year of foreign language classes, they’re paired up with an overseas pen pal, Character B. Now, after talking over Skype, email, and traditional letters for years, Character A has saved up enough money to spend a month in Character B’s country while they act as their tour guide to Character A. Shenanigans ensue. 
  89. “Not Quite Imaginary AU”: Characters A and B are twins who were involved in an accident that left Character A with limited use of their voice/hands/feet/eyes/ext and without their other sibling. To deal with the loss, Character A ‘fabricates’ another version of their sibling as an imaginary friend; however, as they grow older, Character A realizes that this imaginary sibling isn’t going away with age, and will often act on it’s own accord, almost like a ghost. Through the story, Character A is constantly caught wondering if Character B simply something that they made up as a kid to deal with grief, or if Character A is really being haunted by the ghost of their deceased sibling. 
  90. ”Fault in the Dark AU”: Character A tries to fix the television but accidentally short circuits the entire neighborhood - left in the dark, they and Character B must try and find a few flashlights and candles, all while stumbling around the house (future blanket fort / pillow fort optional).
  91. ”Eradicated AU”: Character A trained at an Academy for the Gifted from a young age, where they were eventually admitted to a program exclusive to Future Hired Assassins. After a few years in the business, they are confronted by the government who threaten them with a death sentence unless they kill one last person (Character B) that would in turn absolve them of any previous crimes they committed. Character B is the unfortunate civilian who is mistaken for a criminal mastermind planning to dismantle sectors of the military, leading to the demise of many. Character A has no idea that Character B is innocent.
  92. ”Living Shadows AU”: Character A lives in a world in which shadows are these beasts that threaten the lives of every human, they kill off by injecting venom into humans that either ends in a terrible death, or resulting into them turning into a shadow themselves. A has been selected to this program that has recently started know as “Shadow Hunter,” where certain humans are sent off based on traits they show to fight the shadows. A meets Character B, and they become a shadow hunting duo. The best of the best, they think they can never be toppled from their point at the top. What will happen when the shadows learn their tricks? (Bonus points if: A/B gets injected with venom, slowly starts turning into a shadow. The other must kill them off.)
  93. “There’s an old legend in the circus industry of how putting your heart and soul truly into the show would bring it incredible success…who knew that this group would take it so literally.” AU
  94. ”Dry Roses AU”: Character A doesn’t have what you would call a ‘normal job.’ Because they were kicked out of their house at the age of 16, they have had to find a way to live and survive in the streets of Savannah, GA. The city has been forgiving in some aspects, allowing them to sell their own goods in more than one busy location for pedestrians. One day, they are selling and folding palm leaf roses by the shoreline early in the morning, when Character B finds them, looking very tired, and asks them for a rose. A offers them a deal: either they can have their rose right now for the regular price, or they can come back in exactly 13 minutes with a coffee and five dollars for something very special. B, suspicious but willing to play along, returns, coffee and bill in hand, only to find a large bouquet of palm leaf roses exactly where B was seated with the note “please find me again.” Recommended sad ending: A and B date for a while until one day B is hit by a bus, leaving A alone in their life. A’s palm leaf roses always cover B’s grave completely, never wilting, never dying.
  95. Character A is a musician who has played with their eyes closed for years and years yet is able to hit every single note; upon being interviewed by Character B of this strange habit, A tell them that they’ll only tell them upon a few conditions (specified by author). Later, Character B learns that A has synesthesia, and this form allows them to be bombarded with colors among the unimaginable with each and every note they play, but only with their eyes closed: “I have to sacrifice accuracy in order to truly feel - I would make the same trade with the devil any damn day.”
  96. ”Just a Paper Cut AU”: As the school’s library intern, Character A has some fairly uneventful days, filled with the Dewey Decimal System and shushing rowdy students from shelves and shelves away, but what with the amount of books the library carries, it normally keeps them busy. Character B is studying for their Med Final when they accidentally procure a particularly nasty paper cut. For the average person, this would not be an issue, but for a person with a strangely low pain tolerance…it’s a completely different story. 
  97. “”I’ll Save You” AU”: Character A is with a group of their friends in the zombie apocalypse. They’re bitten, but in this situation, the bite doesn’t turn the one who is bitten into a zombie for a few days. They will experience weakness, pains, and sickness during these days, however. Character B is a friend of Character A’s in the group, and they’re immune. They’d hidden this fact, knowing that they would be horribly experimented on until death if it was found out. But upon seeing Character A in suffering, Character B sneaks away and offers to be experimented on by the government to find a cure. Character A and their friends hear of the cure a couple days later and rejoice, until they see a picture of “the brave soul who sacrificed themselves for the sake of the world.”
  98. “There is a legend that says that if you remove a doll’s eyes, they will watch you for the remainder of your life and decide upon your worthiness of having children or not. Depending on your actions, you may not have children, you may have children, or…you may wish you never had children.” AU
  99. Characters A, B, C, and D are avid video gamers who make up the after school club, League of Gamers. When school is threatened by budget cuts and their club (along with many other unfunded clubs) is disbanded for not having enough members, it’s up to group to call on the other geeky clubs – cosplay club, anime club, D&D club, LOTR club, ext – to band together and make the ultimate geek club.
  100. “When the elevator opened, you can bet your ass that the last thing I was expecting was you on your knees with a ring and a mariachi band. Who even are you and why would you propose like this???” AU
  101. And, of course (at the request of many): “your character wakes up in the desert wearing a cowboy hat yeehaw what the hell happened here.”
