I see a lot of modern Reddie out there but the 80′s are so great you guys. Just imagine:
Ritchie giving Eddie a floppy disk with weird ass photos or cryptic texts. Eddie doesn’t own a computer, so he does nothing with it for years. Probably until somewhere in the early 90′s. It’s the thought that counts.
Actual, long phone calls. With the wired phones and the constant fear of having parents listen in on the conversation. Not Richie’s parents, because they were never that visible in his life, but Eddie’s mom listens in almost all the time. They probably develop their own nicknames and codewords so she doesn’t understand.
Eddie hates the arcade because it’s gross, but he goes to watch Richie play. He doesn’t really want to touch the machines, but Richie insists. He lets Eddie win and suffers through a whole summer of teasing about being worse than Eddie.
Sneaking into the backdoor of the old cinema and watching terrible horror movies with the other losers (probably also sneakily holding hands in the dark, thinking the other losers won’t notice, but they do.)
Also Eddie being dedicated enough to sit in front of the radio with a recording cassette to catch all his favorite songs and make Richie a mixtape. Richie calls it lame. He listens to it all the time.
So I was explaining my learning style to my boss today when she randomly asked what my sign is. Star sign? Yes, she said. So I said, Aquarius… Then she leaned back in her chair and took a long drink of coffee while looking at me like she knew something I didn’t. That was pretty much the end of the conversation. People who are into horoscopes are just. you guys are weird.
So this is probably a weird question…but what do you guys do when you have one of those…painful-under-the-skin pimples? How do you get it stop hurting so much? I’ve struggled with acne for YEARS and this has probably been one of the more painful zits I have had :(
So as y’all are probably aware, I’m currently working on 3 fics right now, and a couple of them are behind the normal scheduling date.
Taking a look at my workload coming up –not just with work but travel, events, family functions, and the holidays –I’ve come to realize that I don’t have time for all 3 fics at once. I know first round of writing (Magnum Opus, The Fault in My Code, Dread and Hunger) were done at the same time, but that was before marriage/promotion/moving/new commute.
I could probably still do 3 fics, but the quality would be poor at best and they’d be pretty gross as far as editing (I’ve already noticed a few things I’ve missed editing/fixing in updates). For you guys to enjoy a thoroughly edited/loved on fic, I’m going to have to put 2 of these guys on a hiatus and finish them one at a time.
Right now, I’m going to work on Where the Wicked Walk and finish this fic before moving on. After that, I will work on Ill Intentions, then The Unquiet Grave. I know this is frustrating, seeing as how they’re kind of on baby cliff-hangers, but there’s just no time anymore. :)
Where the Wicked Walk will post a new chapter tomorrow, then I’ll be able to get back into my Wednesday weekly update. Thank you guys for understanding! <3
that transmasc feel when you can only partially identify with the experiences of guys and girls in media because you kinda have a weird mishmash of both but you and your experience is never represented even partially so you have this weird schism of just feeling generally wrong and out of place
...how often do you have urges to pat cacti?
It's just that I feel like no one touches them because they're put off by the spikes and that must be a sad life. They're just an outer wall of defence and inside the cactus is just like us, I'm willing to push past that defence to get to them, y'know? Anything to make them feel better
Magnus, blinking slowly:
...definitely, darling. I think it's time we go home now
i just love how there was such a stark contrast between jake telling amy he still has feelings for her (”i know you’re with teddy and nothing is going to happen, i just wanted you to know”) vs teddy telling amy he still has feelings for her (”why are you with him” “will you marry me”)
