yes i do need a new book

Distance Hurts

In which Simon can’t sleep at night because you’re travelling and he misses you.

Requested? Yes. I’m slowly but surely getting through all 23 requests 😳😳


As soon as you walked out of your meeting, books and binders held in your arms messily, you could finally check your phone. It had been going off for a while and you wondered what in hell could have been going on that someone needed to contact you so desperately. At first your phone had rung, after which you put it on silent against your will, but it kept vibrating, so you had to turn it on ‘Do Not Disturb’ in the end.

Stepping outside into the busy streets of New York City and waving around for a cab, you quickly unlocked your phone.

5 new text messages from Si 💕

2 missed calls from Si 💕

You quickly checked your watch to see what time it was, and then did the mental math to work out what time it was back in England, where your long term boyfriend was.

Simon was struggling a little to be alone. I mean, he was still living with the rest of the boys, but he claimed that without you there, it didn’t feel right. Simon wasn’t usually the type to feel clingy, but hen you weren’t within a fifteen minute drive, it seemed like he needed to tell you he missed you every time a minute passed.

You pouted down at your screen as you read his texts, standing on the edge of the road and listening to all the cabs drive by.

I miss you baby 💕💕

When are you coming home? I want to cuddle xx

Where are you right now? When will you have wifi again?

The boys say they miss you too

Pls come home soon 💔xxx

It honestly broke your heart to see how upset he felt when you weren’t there. You looked up and waved at a cab, who flashed his bright lights at you to say he was coming your way. You looked down again and decided to call Simon.

He picked up after the ringer only went off twice.

'Y-N?’ Simon said straight after answering the call.

'Hey Si,’ You said with a sigh and ruffled your hair, letting the cold air pass through. It was overly hot in the meeting room, but you didn’t want to ask to open the windows in case someone else was cold. There was a lady from India sitting next to you, who still had her winter coat on.

'I’m sorry, were you in a meeting?’ He asked. His gorgeous deep voice suited his thick British accent, and for a second it felt like you were home again. You had gotten used to all the thick American accents by now.

'Yeah, I was. It was probably the longest meeting ever,’ You rolled your eyes although he couldn’t see it. 'What are you doing, why are you still awake?’ You asked.

'I can’t sleep,’

'Si, it’s five in the morning there. Usually you’d be asleep by now.’ Concern laced your tired voice.

'I know, but the bed is cold and I don’t have my perfect, beautiful girlfriend to curl up to. I really miss you, Y-N.’ He croaked, and sniffed at the end.

'Are you crying?’ You almost whispered, feeling your own bottom lip tremble.

'W-when are you coming home again?’ He avoided my question, knowing that it would upset me if he told me the truth.

'Tomorrow night. It’s only a couple more hours, love.’ I forced myself to smile as I sat down in the cab and quickly told him the hotel I was staying at. 'I’m in a cab right now, and when I’m at the hotel I’ll have wifi again so we can FaceTime.’ I told him, excited to see his handsome face.

'I’m not sure you want to see me right now,’ He uttered throatily.

'Simon, I don’t care if you’re crying or if it’s dark in your room. Of course I still want to see your lovely face and your lovely blue eyes and your soft blonde hair. Oh my God, I miss you so much.’ I whispered the last part, tears completely covering my eyes now. I squeezed my eyes shut tightly and let the tears run down my face freely.

'I love you,’ Simon whispered back equally softly. You sniffed your nose and smiled, telling yourself to calm down.

'I love you too, I’ll call you in about fifteen minutes, okay?’

'Okay, bye-bye.’ He said and I could almost hear the weak smile in his voice.

Writing this made me a little emotional :(

Off To The Races Pt. 2 - Stiles Stilinski AU

REQUESTED: Yes, requested by @missconverseshoes ! In all honesty, I kind of wanted to write this second part anyway, but I wanted to see that people were enjoying it before I bothered.

WARNINGS: Swearing, smut (daddy kink, kinda rough)

SUMMARY: So, you made it safely away. You have a new place, a new life. But  not everything’s going to be alright. (Takes place a few months after Pt. 1)

NOTES: Okay, so I’m basically doing a whole tonne of writing today. I’m about a week behind on my NaNoWriMo stuff, so I really need to push on and get past that mid-book crisis I’m having. (The middle is always the worst part of any big story :( )

Also, I have to create a worksheet for my class based off a powerpoint my friend has so kindly created, so that needs to be done.

Anyways, enjoy, and if you want Part 3, then message me! <3

oh, my love, come back to me

do not lay yourself to a graveyard sleep
do not burn yourself with the pages of the past

oh, my love, come back to me

no, I will not fix you–
I could not if I tried.

you are not a malfunctioning machine
     in need of new parts and a repairman’s hands
you are not a cracked camera
     hiding faceless demons like blurry photos
you are not a haunted house
     holding shadows of history like ancient ghosts
you are not a beaten book
     missing memories like torn out pages

yes, my love, 
you are battered
              and tattered
                      and shattered
as am I, my love

but tapestries are made of a thousand tiny threads
and mosaics are made of broken glass
and we too are masterpieces made of jagged shards

oh, my love, come back to me

—  oh, my love, come home to me ( j.p. )

Lauren thought she was innocent, sitting in a small town coffee shop, doing some ready until she felt eyes on her. Perhaps her scarf wasn’t doing the best job at hiding the irritated red skin around her neck. Parading it around in a new place was perhaps frowned upon, but she felt the need to address it. “Don’t worry yourself. All consensual.” She speaks up, not looking up from her book until she’s said it.

moonrisedreams  asked:

1) yes i have 3 pets: a dog, a cat, a hedgehog

2) if i could have any superpower it’d probably be to shapeshift like to look like anything/anyone….so useful….

3) my favorite gem from su is garnet, actually. but ruby is a close second bc i relate to her and love her so much

4) my favorite book is? probably jane eyre…..and i hate romance…..idk its so good

6) my favorite animal is frogs……….i love me some frogs…..in fact im kin to frogs…..i love those special boys

8) my weirdest pet peeve is like?? when my stuffed animals arent in the correct place…i get very upset and i cannot sleep until i fix them

9) i dont have a favorite planet but jupiter’s pretty cool, hes got some sick moons

10) i would rename all frogs to Special Boys. no one could refer to them as anything different. They Are Special.

anonymous asked:

Do you think any characters deserve their own Rebirth title

Yes!

Cassandra Cain & Tim Drake deserve a duo book where they’re basically the best crime fighting siblings ever.

Big Barda & Mister Miracle deserve a series about them moving to earth and becoming heroes together.

Catwoman should get one, featuring all three of them.

Black Lightning, Lightning, Thunder and Grace Choi need an ongoing focusing on their superhero work and family life.

Ryan Choi deserves an Atom series, with Giganta co-starring.

And can I PLEASE get a new Justice League Dark book?

Now, for miniseries…

Azrael

Connor Hawke

Jade & Obsidian

Red Tornado

Orpheus

“Come along, John, don’t want to be late!” says Sherlock, donning his coat and scarf.

“What for?” asks John, looking confused.

“Our appointment at the registry office! We need to book a date for the wedding!”

“Wedding? What wedding? Whose wedding?”

“OUR wedding! Do keep up, John!”

“What the hell are you on about? Since when are we getting married?”

“Since I proposed to you three days ago! I distinctly remember you said ‘yes’!”

“Sherlock… three days ago I was down at Harry’s, helping her build her new Ikea bedroom furniture! I was gone for two days!”

“Oh,” says Sherlock, crestfallen. “It must have been Mind Palace you I proposed to.”

“Seems a shame to waste the appointment, so let’s go, yeah?” says John smiling.

“You mean you want to marry me?” says Sherlock hopefully.

“Of course, you great git! If I said it in your Mind Palace, then I’d probably say it in person, too.”

“Brilliant!” says Sherlock, jumping in glee. “By the way, Mind Palace You also agreed for me to turn your old bedroom into a dissection lab, to bring me a pack of 20 Malboro’s and to provide me samples of all of your bodily fluids for an experiment.”

“I need to have a word with your Mind Palace John!”

PFFT hahahahahahahahaha omg glorious XD I love mindpalaceJohn so hard!!!~♥

A new year. I don’t know what this year will bring, and even though, yes, I love planning ahead months in advance, I am oddly okay with the unknown. Maybe it is because I met you. And I can’t seem to predict any of the twists and turns that our friendship takes. At first it was frustrating, but it has grown on me, and I would not want to have it any other way. Because you’re unpredictable, and I need that. Because you seem to live in the moment more and more, and I need that. Because I know you’ll be leaving, but I can’t plan almost nine months in advance for when you are leaving. I have to enjoy all the time that I have with you before you go and hope that when you come back, I can still spend time with you. So, I may have had a different resolution a day ago, but this is it now. I want to live for every day. I want to live in the moment.
—  12:34pm thoughts// I want to and I need to

I need to write a fic where Enjolras is blind and a badass lawyer (ok, yes, I’ve been watching Daredevil, fight me) and he ends up dating Grantaire, tracing careful fingers over his fave and having R describe his paintings to him, 

(Maybe R sculpts in this one. Maybe he works in marble and clay and enjoys watching the way Enjolras traces those as carefully as he does a new law book in braille)

And someone makes a joke about how of course R would be dating someone blind, Of course only someone blind could love him. (A face only a mother could love, Grantaire remembers hearing, over and over)

And Enjolras reaches out and fumbles like he’s reaching for their shoulders, leaning on them heavily. And then he rears back and fucking knocks them out. 

and as R just stands there with stars in his  eyes and lets Enjolras take his hand and drag him out.

I legit used to be known as ‘the Harry Potter girl’ in primary school. I went to a small school and hopped on the Harry Potter band wagon just shy of the rush. (I remember my mum saying 'there’s this book with good reviews, it’s about a boy who finds out he’s a wizard, do you want it?’ And me being like 'yes please’ because getting a new book was my biggest treat as a kid).

Anyway, on world book day the teacher from the class above came into my class like 'is Beth here? We need to know how to spell Azkaban and I haven’t a clue’.

Basically nothing has changed since I was seven. I am still that Harry Potter girl.

The Darkest Minds Readalong

SO! If you guys don’t know by now, The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken is one of my all time favorite series. I have recently obtained all of the books in the series and because it’s a new year I thought a readalong would be swell. (Did I just say swell? Yes I did.) but I need to know if you guys are interested. Last year I did a The Infernal Devices series readalong with @whispersofthesilentwind and I think we had maybe 8 people including sasha and I. I would like more people to participate. 

Last year we had character asks, parabatai, rune stuff, and some other stuff. 

So here’s my proposal:

Do you have the series but haven’t read it yet? Have you been wanting to read the series but your TBR is piling up and you need incentive to read it? Maybe a readalong will help? Also, when shall we do the thing and who would want to co-lead it with me? 

I need to know who is interested! If this post gets 50 notes I’ll do it! And I hope ya’ll plan on joining me!

random fact (about you as a student):

I need your review

Bare with me, just doing a little experiment here.

I’m offering to send a review copy, an ARC of my new book, No Ordinary Star, to W H O E V E R asks. Yes, you read that right. Am I crazy? Probably. Thing is, I’m not crazy, I’m just trusting you guys.

Here are the terms:

Send me an email requesting it at alexandrapen at gmail dot com (also you can send me a tumblr ask)

Please be certain that you can read and review a 120-ish page book within the next FEW WEEKS.

Please read the synopsis here and the first few chapters on my previous blog post, so that you’ll only request it if it’s a genre you GENERALLY READ.

Please don’t be one of those sh***y persons that requests and READS a full book for free and then forgets and/or refuses to post a review to help the author out. I’ve sent about fifteen review copies out, to great personal expense because I don’t live in the US and n o t h i n g. Not even one of them bothered with a rating, let alone a review. Which brings me to you.

Please help me, if you like. There are nearly five thousand people requesting this arc on Goodreads as of now, and I’m offering it to you for free, for whoever asks for it. Just like that. Please don’t take advantage of me.

Thank you so much for reading and (hopefully) reviewing my novel.
To whoever sends me a link of their 4 or 5 star review on goodreads or amazon, I’ll send a print copy.

Let’s see how this goes

Edit: It’s going to be first come first serve from now on, so if you’re still interested please hurry! x
