Have you seen Colin o'donoghue‏ tweet about bullying ? I wish some Outlander actors would tweet something like that with the recent harassment. Stand for ALL your fans and not just when the bullying is against someone you know.

I did see it and I agree with Colin!

However, in Sam’s case his “protector” (and the sheep that follow him) is a high profile, blue check celebrity who is fully sanctioned in Anti-cyber bullying by the United Nations and the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence.

As I have said many many times… I would like a chat with the UN/Yale Initiative and I might reach out to my Yale colleagues and get more details on their program at some point.

Stay (2/2)

Rated: T

Pairing: Barry/Iris

Words: 1,233

Summary: Iris gets Barry to stay. Takes place at the end of 3x16. 

This is the second chapter of Stay. You don’t have to read the first chapter to read this one, but I will leave a link in case you want to check it out.

Read on AO3


None of this makes sense. How the hell did they get here? Just a couple of days ago they were happy, they were engaged and things were finally looking up. And now here they are. Barry thinks they need space and she wants anything but.

She reaches the foot of the stairs and places her hand on the railing and hesitates. She looks over her shoulder at him and sees that he hasn’t moved. He’s hunched over holding his head in his hands. And she can tell he doesn’t want this either. Something happened in the speedforce. Something that pushed him to make this decision. Something that messed with his head. She remembers what he told her about what it is like the last time he was there. How the speedforce took the form of his parents and Joe and even her. So she has to wonder whose form it took this time and what he saw there. She can see him folding in on himself, putting his walls up again. He’s acting out of guilt and he feels like it’s up to him to fix everything. That he has to take on Savitar alone.

It’s been one thing after another and she’s done just sitting there and doing nothing, she’s ready to fight back. So in that second she comes to a conclusion she’s not going to let this go. She’s not going to let him decide that they need space and she’s certainly not going to let him sleep on Cisco’s couch. He needs her just as much as she needs him.

“Stay,” she doesn’t say it loudly, but it carries in the silence of the room and his head immediately lifts up. His eyes find hers questioning her.

The way they look at one another…..

This was what Evi meant when she told Caleb that he deserved to have somebody look at him as if their entire world was centered on him and nothing/nobody else mattered.

The way Dragus looks at her.

The way she looks at him.

for the word ship thing: Connor/Evan birds

HAVE YOU LISTENED TO THE DODIE/THOMAS SANDERS VERSION OF BIRDS? HERE ILL HELP YOU: https://youtu.be/xvlSVDiSnrI

Anyway
(I can’t spell convienetly and my spell check is in Spanish ATM and I can’t figure out how to change it soz)

~ Connor refused to say that Evan and he were dating. Zoe asked him, Jared asked him, his MOTHER asked him, and he didn’t even know how she knew about Evan.
He blamed Zoe.
And they didn’t go out on “dates” or anything. They just hung out. Sometimes at an ice cream place. Sometimes at school. Sometimes they just went outside and looked at the trees. None of these were dates, in Connor’s book. Unfortunately, they seemed to be that way in everyone else’s.
And going birdwatching like Evan had planned with him was most certainly NOT a date. What kind of date would that be? Definitely not a romantic one, that was for sure.
But Connor had never really been one for romance, anyway.
Evan picked him up and was practically jumping in his seat, far more excited than Connor was, but he smiled, nevertheless. Evan drove them to their typical nature reserve, and Evan had so convienently brought binoculars and birdwatching guides, as well as a little baggies of bird seed and some snack for them too.
“Wow,” Connor said in assessment. “You can prepared.
Evan beamed. “Always do.”
It wasn’t long after, when they had silently settled in next to each other and gazed at the trees, when Evan broke the silence. Connor could here the grin in his voice.
“Hey, hey! Do you see that one? It’s beautiful. I don’t know what it is though.” Connor turned to where Evan was directing him, but saw nothing on the branches or in the sky.
“Where? I don’t see any-”
“Oh,” Evan laughed, and turned and looked at him through his binoculars before lowering them. “It must be a you-bird.”
Evan was still grinning at his cleverness and Connor was still trying to figure out what Evan had just said when Evan leaned forward and kissed him.
They didn’t see many other birds, after that.
Xxx
When Connor got home his family was all sitting at their kitchen table, waiting for him. His mother was pretending she wasn’t smiling as she said coyly, “How was your date with Evan?”
Connor shrugged. “We went birdwatching.”
Zoe’s face dropped into a frown of disgust. “Birdwatching? Who goes birdwatching on a date?!” She shook her head. “I guess we were wrong, mom.”
Connor shrugged again, and barely made it to his room before his grin broke and he could barely keep himself from laughing out loud. ~

Fandom: Mystic Messenger. 

Pairing: JuminV

Word count: Approximately 1,894 words.

SO

This is based on @bear–art ‘s JuminV mermaid au (check them out if you haven’t! They’re amazing!) I hope you like this!

As always, I apologize if I have any mistakes, English is not my first language. 

★★★★★

The water was warm.

It was extremely comforting, and it made him think that his body was being surrounded by seaweed or bubbles. Jihyun wasn’t picky, he liked both.

It was always like that, the closer he got to the surface the warmer the water was.

He knew the risks of coming over to the surface, the world of humans, perfectly. His father had told him over and over how dangerous it was, even more dangerous than the girl who he had once loved, and she… was paying her “crime” in jail. He didn’t really think that was necessary, she had only blinded his right eye, after all, but the king and queen thought different.

His parents had always been like that.

He was pulled out of his thoughts when he felt something brush over his long tail, and he looked back to see a very small fish bumping against the middle, it’s fins tickled over the scales of Jihyun’s own tail.

The merman extended one of his long, blue hands out towards the fish, and it happily swam towards him. “Hello, friend.” He muttered with a smile when the animal was close enough, and of course, it didn’t answer. It was still too small to talk, but instead it fluttered happily around Jihyun’s head, deciding to settle in his hair, and the merman laughed.

He spent some more time with the fish, allowing it to move around between his fingers, Jihyun trying to close them at the last moment, but the fish was faster, and apparently a lot smarter too. It played until it got tired, and then left Jihyun alone, not before swimming around his head one last time as a way to say goodbye.

Then he continued to swim, using his arms to pull himself up faster, he was so excited to get to see that magical land again, where people had legs instead of a very nice tail. And he occasionally got to see that people wore some strange fabric over their bodies, he couldn’t even begin to picture how uncomfortable that was.

The male human’s fabric was the one that puzzled him the most, how did the fabric makers – Jihyun would have to make more research about what things in the surface were called – made it possible for a person to fit their two legs inside something like that.

Besides humans, Jihyun was also interested and intrigued by the other things he didn’t see anywhere in the water. There were animals that couldn’t go inside the water because they hated it, there were animals who declared themselves kings of the jungle – whatever that was – and there were also animals that climbed to the top of trees to get fruit.

The merman had been unfamiliar with most of this terms up to now, and he was very excited to see how trees were, or coconuts, maybe even strawberries. And Jihyun desired to be able to stare at the moon properly, from a spot where it wouldn’t move with the course of the waves.

The moment his fingers touched the edge of the water, and escaped to feel the air flowing around them, he smiled.

He pulled himself up a little bit further to get his head out of the water, and tried to look around for a perfect spot, before a nagging pressure in his head reminded him that he didn’t have to hold back his breath. Inhale and exhale, the air around him smelled different, the aroma of the salt was ten times stronger over the water than under it.

Jihyun’s grin only got wilder and bigger when he found the place he would spent the next hours in.


He was bored.

Jumin wanted to go out and explore the beach his father’s castle was next to, he had a direct view of the sea from his window, and he knew from the beginning that he wanted to swim on those waters. They seemed to held a promise of something, like he would find something valuable right there.

The prince had been raised by a man who had always told him not to waste any opportunity, and to trust in his guts more than in logic, although he disagreed with the last one. His father had already lost and recovered three family treasures after dating another one of those gold diggers. Horrible witches.

Anyway, Jumin took the opportunity to walk away while his advisor and also bodyguard was distracted. He walked through the castle’s ballroom, the main hallway, and sneaked out of his home by the kitchen doors. Of course, he didn’t forget to tell Lee – the main chef – that if his bodyguard came looking for him the chef would just tell them that the prince was on the beach, swimming.

The black haired man took a deep breath after he exited the kitchen, smiling unconsciously when he saw the water, crystal clear, and it look extremely serene… It was just calling him, trying to get him to jump inside and swim until his arms and legs were sore, and either way that’s what he was going to do.

He took off his shoes, following another one of his father’s advice. It didn’t matter if he ended up with a torn shirt, that was easily replaceable, however, his shoes were not as easy to create, to just throw them in the laundry and hope they were usable the next morning. Going back inside the real world and out of his memories, Jumin stepped away from his shoes, walking down a hill full of grass that ended in a floor full of sand.

Now he had the crystal-looking sea right in front of him, and he was about to take off his shirt to fully dive into the water when he noticed something weird, that stood out by the corner of his eye.

He would deny later that he had been completely shocked and frozen in surprise for a few seconds before he reacted again. But what he was seeing was completely unbelievable, and at the same time, it was dangerous to be close.

There was a mermaid sitting at the edge of a rock, Jumin recognized them from the text books he had read over the years. They had a tail, a very long one with scales, Jumin noticed that it resembled the color of the water in front of him – it would have been pretty if mermaids were not murderers. They also had blue skin, although Jumin had never heard of any that had that skin tone. But there was no mistaking the two fin like objects that rested on either side of their head, that was the biggest giveaway.

The mermaid had been completely stupid to come over here and Jumin Han was about to show them that.

So he ran as fast as he could towards the creature that only inspired fear between the crew members of a ship, he was going to end that.

And he knew exactly how.

When he was close enough to the mermaid, the creature turned around, and Jumin could appreciate how a very colorful teal eye and a faded one widened in fear as the prince threw himself at them, knocking him and the mermaid of the rock. Without wasting a second, the raven made sure to straddle the mermaid’s waist, and then he brought his hand right over the mermaid’s neck, pressing hard enough to make the other start to gasp and writhe.



It was suffocating, his lungs burned with an undesirable pain. Every breath he tried to take only made it worse. 

He was going to die.

His father had warned him about it, but what did he do? He went ahead like a very spoiled prince – which he wasn’t, he gave anything he had to his people – towards the surface and now he was suffering the consequences.

He leaned back against the sand, taking his hand away from the man’s wrist. Jihyun was giving up, if he was going to die, what better way to do it than gasping for breath while he’s staring at the sun, and at the very least he was convinced that he satisfied some of his curiosity before disappearing from the world.

The merman kept watching the human as he choked, a nagging feeling on the back of his head. He watched as the human – a man – changed his expression from anger and hate to confusion, and that was the moment the fingers were removed from his neck. He breathed in and out, quickly, taking in as much oxygen as he could. The prince didn’t know why, but he was glad for the man’s moment of hesitation.

His brain was telling him to run.

But he couldn’t, not as long as those legs were on either side of his tail. He could always move his tail in a way it harmed the man and guaranteed his own freedom, but he didn’t want to. Jihyun didn’t like violence, he had always preferred words.

“Could you… please, lift your legs?” He mumbled when he had enough air in his lungs to do so, and stared at the black haired man, the look in his eyes seemed to be one of hesitation.

The raven shook his head, his eyes narrowing and Jihyun couldn’t help but to flinch a little out of fear. “No. What are you doing here? Who are you?” The man said, he had a very deep and smooth sort of voice, the kind that Jihyun wouldn’t mind hearing the rest of his life.

He knew he wasn’t supposed to do this, but if information was what the man needed to let him go, then he wouldn’t mind. “I came here to watch the sun,” He took another deep breath, trying to regulate his breathing. “And I wanted to wait until the stars came, so I could see them as well.”

“You still haven’t told me who you are.” Muttered the human, bringing one of his hands to ruffle his black hair. Jihyun noticed that the man seemed a little bit more relaxed now, although his posture was still tense, and he couldn’t blame him, the prince would have done the same if a creature from the “enemy” land was in his kingdom.

Although he wouldn’t have tried to kill the intruder.

“My name is Jihyun, and I’m a prince of this ocean… Although now that I think about it, that sounds ridiculous.”

The human stared at him with an extremely serious gaze until the corners of his lips were twitching and next thing Jihyun knew, the man was laughing out loud. His body shook a little bit and at some point he got off Jihyun’s tail to lean against the sand.

Maybe that would have been his chance to run away, but he was interested in the human in front of him, so he waited until the raven got his breath back, and seemed okay enough to answer his questions.

“Who are you?” He questioned, tilting his head in curiosity.

“Ah, I forgot my manners. I’m Jumin Han, the prince of this kingdom, just like you.”

“But human.” Jihyun said, and that made them both laugh.

The merman couldn’t help but think that Jumin’s smile was pretty.


And the human was thinking that Jihyun’s laugh was a very melodious and beautiful sound.

😒ugh so should I feel guilty if I'm in a relationship with someone I know I won't ultimately end up with? Does the goal of every relationship have to be spending the rest of their lives together? I like my boyfriend he's a really cool guy and he's like my bestfriend but I'm not in love with him. But I really really don't want to end what we have cause it's just nice to have someone constantly checking up on me and someone who's constantly there for sex😂 I probably sound like a horrible person

You probably would be better off in an open relationship or friends with benefits. It would be the mature thing to do to let your partner know your mindset on this, don’t be out here misleading mfs. Let shit be known for what it is.

Everyone talks about how shitty and stupid customers are, why don’t we ever talk about the cool ones? 

-Bilingual children translating for their parents/grandparents like a boss

-The drunk guy you had to deny a sale to and he took it so well and maybe even thanked you for keeping him safe

-The random peeps in a long check out line who stop to tell you you’re doing an amazing job

-The regulars who have your back when someone starts giving you a hard time

-Customers who let you know to keep an eye on someone for shoplifting

-Bros who insist on cleaning up their own mess/spill

-The really upbeat/cheery mom/aunt type customer that just kind of brightens your day a bit

Feel free to add, you guys. You know who they are, let’s give them some love.

i agree that Sportacus can definitely be That Guy who’s like “have u tried jogging? :) drink water and eat fruits :)” BUT

he is also a genuinely kind and caring slightly-above-average hero who just wants u to be happy and healthy, and if u told him ur depressed and don’t even have the energy to clean ur home or remember to eat, much less jump around and run, he’d be genuinely understanding. in fact he’d probably help u tidy up and cook u a healthy meal and then check up on u regularly and once in a while probably invite u out so u could move a little, even if it’s just a short walk. Sportacus wants to help you he doesn’t wanna force u to do something u can’t. he’ll be ur Emotional Support Elf if that’s what u need.

The Ultimate Guide to POT Dates

POT
noun, (pronounced: pē-oh-tē)
A potential Sugar Daddy. This is a man you have not met yet, but are considering starting an arrangement with, or have been on a date with, but haven’t established anything solid yet. In short, a man who you think could potentially be your sugar daddy, but aren’t quite sure yet.

So you’ve checked out his profile, messaged with him a little, decided he could be the one for you; the main question asked now is - what do I do next?

The answer is simple, but for the Sugar Babies who are new, it’s often terrifying. Using the experience I’ve gotten after being a Sugar Baby for a while, I’ve put together a complete guide on how to handle that very first date, so that maybe it goes a little smoother than mine did! xo

Before You Meet

  • Get a feel for him over messaging/text - There’s nothing worse than being stuck for an hour or two with a man who has an attitude, is full of himself, or is just salty, that’s why it’s important to work out what type of person he is. 
                    ‣ Identifying Factors:
                            - He has a sleezy username on SA: if his username is ‘CunnilingusMaster69′ or something along those lines, it’s blatantly obvious what’s he looking for.
                            - His responses don’t mirror yours: think about conversational mirroring and use it to help you gauge the success of your conversation. It’s a form of social psychology that is pretty important to how anyone is perceived. If you’re typing out paragraph after paragraph and he is replying with short responses (or vice versa), it’s obvious one party is more interested than the other.
                            - He asks for sexual photos: if he’s asking for sexual photos without even met with you for the first time, then he’s got one thing on his mind and it’s probably pay per play. However, most Sugar Daddy’s will ask for extra photo’s, to make sure you’re not catfishing them, so be ready for that request and have extra photo’s you can send that aren’t on your profile (I usually send one cute selfie and a second full body pic in a nice outfit.) Please note: Snapchat ‘puppy’ filter selfies are not appropriate to send as an additional selfie, maybe once you’ve met him a few times, but not prior to a first meet. You’re already younger than him, there is no need to make yourself seem even younger.
                            - He asks you questions of a sexual nature (ie: your favorite position, sexual history, what you’re into, kinkiest desires, etc): there is absolutely no need for tacky sexual questions, especially if you two haven’t met before. It is important to understand that yes, sugaring is based on sex, sugaring is sex work, but it’s not only sex. Sugaring is about companionship, chemistry, new experiences, and then sex. If he requires a detailed list of what you will or will not do sexually just to meet you for the first time, then he is obviously not looking for a sugar arrangement, he’s just looking for pay per play (which is fine if pay per play is what you’re looking for, each sugar baby is entitled to her own wants and desires out of an arrangement).
                   ‣ Tip:
                           - Whenever an SD asks me “what i am willing to do”, i always reply with this. It’s elegant, polite, and successfully moves the conversation to other topics.
  • Get as many details about him as you can - Meeting someone off the internet is always a little unnerving, especially when it’s a man twice or three times your age. To feel safer, ask for as many details from him as you can, then reverse search the information you have (ie: his phone number, email, name, etc.) to find out his address, income, family members, and other information of the sort. The same goes with photo’s, reverse search them to find out company info, criminal history, and if he’s on any other sites (this helps cross-check age, location, and other facts he has listed on his profile).
  • Choose an identity and stick to it - Think about the type of person you want to convey (ie: the struggling but motivated university student, the driven twenty-something, the educated single mother, the urban socialite, etc) and build yourself up around that image. If you don’t feel comfortable using your real name with POT’s, use a fake name. Invent fake facts and stories or recall certain facts and stories from your life that correspond to the type of person you want to be. Remember, the more you have, the better. Most POT’s will ask you to some extent, some more than others, about you (ie: your job, your likes/dislikes, your upbringing, your dreams/aspirations, your background, your parents/their occupation, etc) and you will need to be prepared to answer. On the other hand, be prepped with questions to ask him, this date is about getting to know each other, it’s a waste of time if you leave knowing nothing about him.
                  ‣ Tip:
                           - If you’re struggling with coming up with questions, check out this and this, there’s a large variety of questions that you could use.
  • Make sure he understands that absolutely nothing sexual will happen on this date - There should be no sex on a first date, absolutely nothing sexual. If your POT believes that coffee/lunch/dinner/drinks and a hundred dollars should equal sex in the hotel down the block, then you leave him right there and then. We are ladies looking for gentlemen with the means to provide for us and support us. If he’s only interested in sex in exchange for money, then he’s looking for an escort, not a sugar baby. (Note: if sex in exchange for money is what you’re looking for, then go right ahead and make that cash, every girl is allowed to make her own choices!)
  • Agree to meet in a PUBLIC place - Always meet for the first time in a public place (A restaurant, coffee shop, bar, hotel lounge/lobby, etc) because your safety and comfort comes first! If he invites you up to his hotel room for a drink, decline by saying that is something you would love to do sometime, but would feel better meeting in a public space first. If you starts arguing or does not agree to this, drop him. You don’t need to waste your time on an asshole like him. 
                 ‣ Additionally: 
                          - Have your own transportation to and from your meet! Do not get into his car thinking you’ll save a little cash, even if he was kind and definitely legitimate! Personally: I don’t let POT’s get me an Uber home either, I don’t feel comfortable with them knowing my exact address.
  • Ask for a gift - While this isn’t something that is necessary to do, it’s something that I do. If you’re aiming for a gift, make sure to ask after you have made plans to meet or at least a day before you meet, this gives the POT time to either go shopping for you or go to an ATM for some cash. If you’re aiming for travel compensation, then feel free to ask a few hours before or even during the date, travel compensation is something usually all POT’s will agree to. This or this are the ways I use to ask, either one usually work flawlessly.
                 ‣  Keep in mind
                         - It is not a red flag if he declines to bring you a gift! At this point in your relationship, he owes you just as much as you owe him, which is nothing. If he declines, just say that’s it’s okay and then (if you still want a little cash) try the travel compensation method.
  • Text to confirm - One of the worst things is dolling yourself up and then coming out to meet, only to find that your POT actually couldn’t make it. That’s why it’s important to confirm your meeting a few hours before in a quick little text.
  • Stay SAFE - Safety has always and will always be the number one thing in the sugar bowl which is why you need to make sure you have at least one person who know’s who you’re meeting, where, and when. If you don’t feel comfortable telling anyone you know in real life, message me and I will gladly be your safety contact. In addition to having a safety contact, it is always a good idea to carry around a bottle of mace with you, for creepy POT’s and creepy men in general.

During Your Meet

  • Make an entrance - Often,the first part of the conversation happens before you open your mouth, sometimes it happens before you’ve even laid eyes on them. When you enter any room, have your head up and your shoulders down. Don’t strut, but walk gracefully, swaying your hips gently, you can even look up videos of models on catwalks and learn how to walk like they do. Be dramatic, walk like you’re the center of attention - you’re a sugar baby: you’re young, stunning, and seductive. Pause in the entrance and survey the room slowly, let your eyes to travel from one side of the room to the other, until you locate your POT. It may sound a little silly, but a proper entrance will captivate anyone, especially your POT. Knowing how to walk properly and make an entrance is useful in practically every aspect of your life, not just in sugaring. 
  • Keep the focus on them - I’ve noticed that POT’s (and SD’s in general really) love to talk about themselves, some SB’s will even go as far as to say that these men don’t care about the things you say unless it directly relates to them (in my experience this isn’t always true, it depends on the man). Try to find a way to refocus the conversation about him, you will easily become his favorite person to speak to.
                ‣ Additionally:
                         - If he shows pride, you give praise. If he says something, then pauses, and looks at you significantly, he’s waiting for the applause. Be there to give it to him. You don’t even have to think what he did was impressive. You just have to be there ready to dispense a pat on the back  Do not be over dramatic, smile, look impressed, and stroke his ego.
  • Pay attention when he speaks - Be engaged in the conversation: ask questions to further your understanding of the topic, make comments to indicate that you are paying attention, laugh a little to signal that you are having fun, smile to show that you enjoy being in his company, and make eye contact! If you look a person in the eye, it signals that you not only hear what they’re saying but are interested in it. If you have to look away do it slowly, this reinforces your interest and enjoyment of what you’re hearing.
  • Don’t fidget - It ruins your credibility. Often, stillness is compared with integrity. Those that can look someone in the eye and sit still are usually believed over those that try to say something while squirming in their seat. It’s important to have good posture as well, don’t slump in your seat and if you do, catch yourself and correct your posture. 
               ‣  Don’t worry:
                        - Your hair looks fine, your clothing fits you well, and your phone will not explode if you don’t check it for an hour. Your main focus should be your POT, not the little things about your appearance.
  • Relax - You might be a little nervous over the first date, but chances are, he probably is too! Some SD’s are nervous the first time meeting, this might be due to the fact that you’re much younger than he is or he might be downright intimidated because of your looks. Your job is to make him feel at ease and the easiest way to help him feel at ease is to be at ease yourself. People play off each other’s energies and your body language speaks volumes, so try your best to just relax.
  • End on a good note - End the date with a hug or a handshake (or a kiss on the cheek, if you like him), something physical so that you touch and it leaves him wanting a little more. If you went out for lunch/dinner, tell him how thankful you are for taking you out, how much you loved the food, and how he has great taste in restaurants

After Your Meet

  • Assessing him - A person’s appearance and demeanor speaks volumes about them. Observe not his wallet, his cufflinks, or his shoes, but his mannerisms, his eloquence, and his overall conduct. Many good sugar daddies may not look the part, but they will act it. There’s no forcing chemistry, so it’s best to figure that out right away before delving deeper.
                  ‣ Questions to think about:
                         
    - Does he ask you first what you want to eat?
                         - Is he interested in what you’re saying?
                         - How does he talk about his family, his employees?
                         - Is he nice to the waitstaff?
                         - How much is he tipping?
                         - Were your personalities compatible?
                         - Did you have a lot in common?
                         - Was it easy to hold a conversation with him, or were there awkward silences?
                         - Is this someone you’d be comfortable being seen in public with, going on vacations with, and generally spending time with?
  • Send a follow up text - If the date went well, shortly after you meet (a few hours or a day, at most), send the POT/SD a text saying that it was a pleasure meeting him and you’d love to see him again. When (or if) he responds, you might be able to schedule your next date!
  • Think about your loses - If the date didn’t go so well, you got a free coffee/lunch/dinner/gift. If your POT contacts you and asks you out again, decline politely and wish him luck finding what he’s looking for.

Allowance Talk - Yes Or No?

There’s a lot of disagreement on whether or not you should speak about allowance with your POT on a first date. I’ve had POT’s bring up numbers over text/on the phone/email (prior to meeting and after meeting) and during coffee/lunch/dinner/drinks. In my opinion, let him bring up the allowance talk.

  • If he does, express your desires concerning allowances, gifts, and how the arrangement will work. Most arrangements end due to schedule conflicts and misunderstanding expectations, be clear about what you want. 
  • If he doesn’t, that’s completely fine too. You’ll most likely speak about it on your second date or over some electronic format.
  • If you touch on the subject but you notice he’s not too keen on delving into it at the moment, leave it alone. This sends your POT the message that you’re more interested in a suitable arrangement than the money, as well as that you are nowhere near desperate and while you are interested in him, not overly so. This lack of overt interest gives you more control of the relationship from the get-go. It also shows that he cannot control you or gain your interest with his money alone. This makes it easier for you to discuss the terms of the relationship, set boundaries, and negotiate your allowance later on.

What to Wear

Men are visual creatures, they love eye-catching arm candy, but most prefer elegance or casual classy to outright flashy. However, showing all your goods on the first meeting is not a good idea. Choose one thing to show off, this leaves his imagining and wanting more. Keep in mind where you’re meeting, as well. There’s no need to go all out if you’re just meeting for coffee.

  • If you’re meeting for coffee - Jeans and a pretty blouse will be just fine, top it off with flats or boots and you’ll be good to go. If it’s warmer out, a sundress is perfectly acceptable too.
                ‣  Keep in mind
                        - Meeting a POT for the first time in shorts is not appropriate, there is no need to play up the age difference between the two of you, even if it is hot outside.
  • If you’re meeting for lunch/dinner/drinks - A formfitting dress will do you good, especially if it’s dinner or drinks. Complete the look with a nice pair of heels and some jewelry, if you’re having trouble figuring out which jewelry to wear with what, check out this!
  • Makeup - Keep the makeup light and natural, opt for neutral colors rather than darker ones. Get your nails done, fill in your brows, foundation, mascara, light colored eye shadow, and lipstick/lip-gloss is all you’ll need. I prefer to top up my look with a slightly red nude lip (since my lips are full and the color makes them pop more), even though most SB’s suggest to stay away from all red’s.

So there you have it dolls, an ultimate guide to POT dates. Feel free to add on your own tips! Keep sugaring, dolly xoxo

Top 20 Sterek Fics 2016

Just like last year, we have decided to put together a list of fics that we read this year that we really enjoyed! So many great ones were posted but these are our personal favorites. 

Here’s last years list if you want to check it out - (x)

Have an amazing 2017 guys!

K’s:

Windows by dr_girlfriend (28/28 | 83,006 | NC17)

Derek has a new neighbor who won’t stop looking.

Excerpt:

“You’re blind,” Derek said flatly, the anger draining from him so suddenly he felt almost woozy. His vision cleared, his claws sliding back into blunt fingernails.

“Thanks for the memo, genius,” the kid said acidly. “I can still fucking defend myself, so don’t take another damn step.”

“Fuck, I…I’m sorry,” Derek stuttered.

“What?!” The kid’s brow crinkled. “I mean — what?! You’re fucking sorry!?” His lips thinned into a harsh line. “What, is this some kinda Hallmark movie where you’re discovering the error of your ways because you don’t want to rob a blind person?! That’s fucking condescending, man. I’ll have you know that —”

“Just, wait.” Derek interrupted what was apparently the start of a convincing argument as to why he should rob the kid after all, feeling his head start to spin. “This is — it’s a misunderstanding. I’m — I’m not robbing you. You’re — you’re safe, okay? I’m taking three steps back. Just — just let me explain.”

“Explain why you came busting into my apartment? Yeah, go right ahead, man, I can’t wait to hear this epic tale.”

Capes are Cool (but they don’t make a hero) by chantelle82 (3/3 | 7,068 | PG13)

The story of how Stiles and Derek fall in love and became heroes - to each other

Numbers by standinginanicedress (1/1 | 11,150 | PG13)

“I’m magic,” Stiles raises his hands in the air and puts on a serious facial expression. “I have the sixth sense.”

“The sixth sense, huh? Is that what they’re calling bullshit these days?”

Stiles’ lips purse down hard, but he still smirks. Derek wonders if there’s any single facial expression that Stiles can make that isn’t in some way at least slightly amused, whether at himself or the expense of others. “Non-believers aren’t welcome at my table, Derek.”

It’s Too Early For This by thepsychicclam (1/1 | 4,966 | PG13)

Derek loves his job at the coffee shop, especially because Stiles comes in for coffee before early Saturday morning lacrosse practices. The problem is that Derek is too shy to do anything about his crush, and the situation is not helped by the rivalry between the basketball and lacrosse teams.

Hale Construction by Mynuet (1/1 | 8,342 | G)

Derek gets a business and a home. Stiles gets his own Batman. The sheriff gets hash browns. The Stilinski household is expanded without anyone quite talking about it.

A’s:

A Heart is a Heavy Burden by lielabell (13/13 | 41,242 | PG13)

In Which Stiles: is accosted by unhappy witches, becomes friends with fire demons, is rescued by darkly handsome wizards, discovers hidden inner depths, is introduced to princes, and finds true love. Though not necessarily in that order.

(Or the Howl’s Moving Castle AU fusion fic you never knew you wanted but are delighted to have.)

French Silk Pie, Baby by KuriKuri (1/1 | 2,649 | PG13)

“See, your angel of a sister - ” Derek scoffs. Cora hasn’t been an angel since she was five months old. “ - agreed to date me, because my visa is about to expire and - ”

“I’d have to marry you for that, dumbass,” Cora butts in, rolling her eyes.

“Are you saying you wouldn’t marry me to keep me in the country?” Stiles asks, sounding mildly offended.

“Hell no,” Cora snorts, earning her a wounded look from Stiles.

Twice in a Lifetime (AKA The Importance of Snuggle Buddies) by normalcatbehaviour (1/1 | 1,761 | G)

It takes him a while to actually notice it’s not just Stiles sprawled across their couch, but to be fair to him, he isn’t really thinking about anything but finally getting some sleep and maybe liberating one of the cookies that Stiles thinks are well hidden behind the microwave. He’s half way to covering the boys up with a blanket when he finally notices.

That is definitely not Scott McCall.

It is in fact definitely Derek Hale. Derek Hale the 26 year old. Who his son is currently lying on, head tucked under Derek’s chin, Derek’s hands clenched in the back of his t-shirt.

“Um,” the Sheriff says. He wasn’t prepared for this.

tongue of dog and blind-worm’s sting by Zercalo (7/7 | 51,909 | NC17)

In order to keep the identity of the teacher he’s been seeing a secret, Derek’s been withdrawing from his pack and family. Cora, frustrated with his alienation and a little lonely, clings to the first nonjudgmental person who offers companionship – which happens to be that odd Muggleborn Revenclaw who’s always hanging around the Gryffindor common room.

She hasn’t befriended Stiles for Derek’s sake, but Derek just might reap the benefits anyway - if he pulls his head out of his ass and quit the stupid self-sacrificing act.

No Homo by RemainNameless (11/11 | 84,064 | NC17)

Stiles’ sophomore year starts something like this:
3 FourLokos
+ 1 peer-pressuring cat
- 1 best bro to end all best bros
= 1 Craigslist ad headline that reads “str8 dude - m4m - strictly platonic”.
Derek is the fool who replies.

Kass’:

Filter Out the Starlight by skoosiepants (1/1 | 12,238 | PG13)

“Why are you not more curious about me?” Stiles says when Derek’s got the door half open, sun spilling over the dark wood, dust motes spinning about his legs. Stiles is wearing fabric that hasn’t been invented yet, he’s clutching a smart phone to his chest, and he appeared out of nowhere, like an angel.

Softly, Derek says, “We all have our secrets,” and closes the door.

Or-

A heartbroken Stiles accidentally travels back in time to find his one true love. A harlequin-ish Christmas romance.

Regression to the Mean by theroguesgambit (1/1 | 16,546 | R)

There aren’t really words for this. “Sure, dude. Let’s hang out sometime and bond over the fact that our lives suck and we’ve both basically killed a bunch of people by accident” doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue.

Prompt: In the aftermath of 3B, Stiles and Derek learn to trust, learn to fuck, and learn to love themselves, each other, and their pack.

I Breathe Disaster by TamzStripped (12/12 | 84,946 | NC17)

“No. I’m not doing it. You can’t make me, Scott.”

“Don’t be such a wuss. You don’t want to die, do you? This is the only way to keep you safe from the Alpha pack.”

“Why not Danny? He’s actually gay, kind of adorable, and doesn’t look at me like he wants to shut me up…with his teeth.” Stiles threw his arms out in front of him, Scott shook his head for the thousandth time. “Why not?”

or

How Stiles went from hating Derek, to wanting to cuddle him, to hating him again, to kissing his boo-boo’s, to waxing poetic, then finally laying his life on the line to save him. Funny how things turn out.

Don’t You Wanna Be My Sky? by WhoNatural (1/1 | 9,420 | G)

Stiles got ratted out by the Realm Guard for sneaking off with Scott a total of seven times before his dad buckled, promising sabbatical once Stiles reached Faehood, and enough Earth culture in the meantime to have him talking like a born-and-bred Californian teenager.

He just didn’t have the tan.

(Or, in which Stiles is a Frost Fae sent to the Earth Realm on the Fae version of Rumspringa and immediately falls head-first into a Coffee Shop AU)

Mauve by bleep0bleep (1/1 | 7,380 | NC17)

It’s been ten years since he’s seen Derek Hale, but Stiles would recognize that ass anywhere.

Tine’s:

The Fixer and the First Son by ebjameston (10/10 | 47,625 | PG13)

“You want me to arrange a political marriage for your son?” Stiles repeats dumbly.

“It wouldn’t be the first time you’ve done this,” Talia Hale says, dark eyes twinkling over her impeccable blue pantsuit. “Senator Harvey and Elise’s match worked out perfectly, and they’re actually quite in love, from what I hear.”

“George Harvey was a little-known senatorial candidate from Kansas at the time, Madam President,” Stiles says slowly. “Your son – you, Mr. Hale,” he directs toward the man pacing tiny circles behind the president’s chair, “are the nation’s most eligible bachelor. Literally. I saw it on the cover of People.”

(Stiles is a political fixer. Derek is the president’s son. I’ve been watching too much Scandal.)

Part 1 of Stilinski & Associates

steal my breath away by stilinskisparkles (1/1 | 4,454 | PG13)

This is the worst organised robbery I’ve ever seen,” Derek comments as he begrudgingly does as he’s told.

“Nobody asked you,” Stiles huffs.

Home by TheTypewriterGirl (17/18 | 160,430 | PG13)

January seventh. Seven days since the start of 2015, and seven days since his father’s death.

The bastard, he thinks bitterly. The past year Derek Hale had made it blatantly obvious that he hated his scrawny guts, taking every given opportunity to shove him up against a wall, growl threats in his ears and roll his eyes whenever he stepped into the room, muttering some snide comment about how spastic or idiotic he was.

So why did he fucking volunteer to take him in?

Sowing Season by WeAreTheCyclones (28/? | 177,873 | R)

Just a bunch of kids doing teenage stuff: starting bands and terrorizing teachers and hurting like hell and falling for each other. The usual.

Part 3 of Play Crack the Sky

The Circus at the End of the World by mikkimouse (25/25 | 91,049 | NC17)

Three hundred years ago, the world ended not with a bang or a whimper, but with magic.

Since then, magic has been outlawed, and the world has clawed its way back to some kind of stability, with people and shifters alike divided between living within the walled safety of the Havens, or the small, less protected outposts dotting the frontier.

Derek Hale and his sisters, Laura and Cora, are the proprietors of Hale’s Circus of Magic, Monsters, and Mystical Wonders, known colloquially as the Circus at the End of the World. They and their ragtag pack ride the rails between the outposts and the Havens, performing for those who can pay (and some who can’t). Their circus is a small haven in and of itself, a place of safety for those who have nowhere else to go.

It’s a quiet life…until Stiles Stilinski joins the crew.

The circus has something Stiles needs—a ticket into the Haven of Santa Francesca. His father has been abducted, and Stiles is determined to get him back no matter what he has to do.

But Stiles has another secret, one that puts him and every member of the circus in danger. And if he’s not careful, it could get them all killed.

Mentions of Dan: ||||| ||||| ||||| ||||| |

Abracadabra! You're pulling the rabbit out of where?!?!

Not really a fuck anybody but a positive story that I really wanted to share with you all. It’s a bit long but worth it. TLDR at the end.

I have 2 rabbits. I was told they were both female. They are not. Now I have 11 baby rabbits. One of the babies is quite a bit smaller than the others and he had squirmed out of the nest so he was really cold and stiff when I checked on him this morning. I was running late for work so I grabbed him and tucked him inside my bra to try and warm him up and then I forgot about him.

I got to work and was talking to my manager when all of a sudden the rabbit woke up. He stopped mid sentence and said “Did your boobs just squeak?” And he just looked so alarmed it was hilarious. So I explained why I had a squeaky baby rabbit stuffed down my shirt and then he called all of my coworkers over to come see the baby and we all had a good laugh.

He said that I could keep the baby with me while I was on register so I bought some kitten formula and a dropper and fed it whenever it got noisy. Animals are allowed in the store so nobody minded.

All day long customers would see my shirt randomly squirm and I’d show them the baby and they’d laugh. One guy saw me pat my boobs and say “Calm down I just fed you, you’re fine.” And he just looked so confused. 😂😂My manager said that if it survives it can be our unofficial store mascot and come to work with me everyday. It was pretty much my best shift ever.

TLDR: I freaked a bunch of people out with my boob rabbit. 🐰🐰

aphobic lgbt+ ppl: we have NOTHING in common with aromantic/asexuals!!

aphobic lgbt+ ppl: aromantic and asexual people aren’t oppressed and even if they are, they certainly aren’t oppressed ENOUGH to be in our community

aphobic lgbt+ ppl: aromantic and asexual people are BASICALLY STRAIGHT and no one ever needs to know about their orientation because there’s no real difference from being STRAIGHT

me: ………….. anyway, so check out this canon aroace character, Jughead, who

aphobic lgbt+ ppl: NOOOOOOOOO Jughead is GAY-CODED!! I really IDENTIFY with him!! he clearly has all the traits of a GAY PERSON!! not wanting to have sex or romance with a woman (as a male character) in this heteronormative society CLEARLY makes him GAY and part of OUR COMMUNITY!! YOU’RE STEALING REPRESENTATION FROM US!!!!!

me:
