To prized swimmer at Drexler University in Philadelphia, Emily Fields, everything is like clockwork. That is, until she bumps into Alison DiLaurentis, the “It” girl she went to high school with. Back then, Alison was the most malicious girl in Rosewood, tormenting everyone and anyone that stood against her. However, due to events in her past, she has made a complete 180. Time after time, the two cannot seem to stop running into each other. Being described as a literature RomCom, within this slight au, we watch Emison bloom their relationship from merely strangers to something beautiful.
Coming from a small town in Rosewood, Pennsylvania, after graduating from the Stanford University, Emily Fields joins into the Army similarly as her now veteran father did before she was born. A highly anticipated tour in Afghanistan brings Emily back to the States in not only a peculiar circumstance but with life-changing options left in the palm of her hand. From rethinking where she stood in her life, Emily goes from an Army Ranger to a thriving entrepreneur in the sunny city of Miami, Florida within five years of her last stint of being a part of the US military. During this time she comes across a daring, unapologetic blonde named Alison DiLaurentis who Emily merely sees as another notch under her well-studded belt of women. But when Alison proves herself to be not just any girl that Emily can have, Emily makes it her mission to make her crack. Nobody says no to Emily Fields without eventually caving in. Things heat up between the two when Alison realizes that Emily has an audacious personality of her own, prompting the constant game of cat and mouse to ensue. Will she give into Emily’s persistent charm or will Emily burn her hand attempting to capture Alison?
Different from Emison, this is a Sparia fic. Living in the dorms of UPenn, Spencer and Aria meet each other in a interesting way during the crazy week of winter finals. From comedy to romance, Sparia makes the most of their college experience together before they start realizing that the presence of each other’s company is being cherished more than friends. But the question is: how do they act on it?
these three stories are my absolute babies and i hope you enjoy them if you happen to read them!

(maybe i’ll make this into a different kind of blog after 1000 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯¯\_(ツ)_/¯)
Do you ever stop and think about it ? She can hear people’s thoughts ofc, but she can also hear their heart, aka know their past and their deepest fears and desires. Still she didn’t turn bitter and hateful. How amazing ?! So now, the headcanons :
It was a conscious decision to keep an open-mind towards anyone, in hope people would be the same with her
She inherited her powers from her mother, who got it from her mother before her etc. - much like Parseltongue in the Gaunt family comes from Salazar Slytherin, except she doesn’t know who it originally comes from
Her parents died when she was very young, before her powers really revealed their entire potentials
She had to teach herself how to control them. Tina helpedby supportign her and letting her experiment with her mind as much as she needed
When she was at school, she suffered from chronical insomnia because she just couldn’t shut other people’s brains out
When it happened, she would go into Tina’s dormitory and they would talk for as long as was needed
Now she’s very good at speaking so softly that no one can hear her if she doesn’t want them to
Tina can organise her thoughts so that Queenie will hear them clearly
Sometimes she speaks to Queenie through M.A.C.U.S.A. this way
Queenie still had lots of sleep issues as an adult but it’s not as bad. However on days she feels poorly she has more trouble keeping control of her powers and NYC can be overwhelming very fast, so she learned spells to isolate the apartment
When she entered puberty she could hear men’s thoughts about her body and it terrified her for a while, then she learned how she could use it against them
That’s why she teased Jacob at first
She knew how sweet he could be, but she also reminded both of them she had to deal with other men before him and she wasn’t just a pretty face he could fantasize about
She fell in love with Jacob just minutes later when he stopped thinking about her naked and started imagining her working with him in his bakery, as his friend and his equal and his lover (in this order)
Her powers are potentially terrifying, she could break people’s minds if she wanted
She doesn’t want it though
But she still could
That’s why when she takes the decision to go look for Jacob she doesn’t hesitate for a second or even imagine that someone could stop her
She’s a force of nature, but really she’s such a nice person that she never becomes a threat to anyone
Except if you threaten people she loves
One of Tina’s exes-turned-bully from school will have awful nightmares all of their lifes
Friendly reminder that any writer, whether you write 100k word multichaptered stories or 50 word drabbles, have 5000 hits or only 50, you’re all amazing and creative and inspirational and i hope you never stop what you’re doing 👍❤❤❤
[1/2] sorry this is more of a fic find: I don't know if you've read them but if you have I've been looking for these two fics for WEEKS. 1) a fic which was about Viktor's relationship to Yurio, in which he'd actually been funding himself and Yurio all along, and Yurio finds the papers when he's looking for Viktor and Yuuri's marriage certificate for a present. 2) a pretty recent stripper/pole AU in which Ice Castle closed when Yuuri was a child and he took up pole dancing in college and loved it
If you've read them, what's your favourite Regis scene from the books? Personally, my favourite is when the group discovers Regis is a vampire. Particularly how he leaves after being threatened by Geralt c':
Ohhh there’s so many of them! But one of my favorites is that sass-off between Fringilla and him.
”The witcher,” she [Fringillo Vigo, talking about Geralt] finally said, “should not leave Toussaint. And no one who is well disposed towards him should persuade him to leave. Where could he go that is better than here? He swims in luxury. He has his monsters, which he hunts, earning quite a bit of money. His friend and companion is the favourite of the ruling Princess here, and the Princess herself also values him. Mainly because of the succubus that had plagued the alcoves. Yes, yes, gentlemen. Anarietta and all the well-born ladies of Toussaint are extremely pleased with the witcher. Because the succubus has indeed stopped its visits, as if cut off. The ladies of Toussaint have also put together a special bonus that will be deposited into the witcher’s account with the Cianfanelli Bank in the near future. And multiply the small fortune that he already has there.” “A very nice gesture on the part of the ladies.” Regis did not lower his eyes. “And the reward is well deserved. It is not easy to cause a succubus to stop its visits. Trust me, Miss Fringilla.” ”Oh, I believe you. Speaking of which, are you aware that one of the palace guards claims he saw the succubus. At night, on the battlements of the Karoberta Tower. In the company of another ghost. Probably a vampire. Both demons were walking there, swears the guard, and they seemed friendly. Perhaps you know something of it, Mr. Regis? Can you explain it?” “No.” Regis did not flinch. “I cannot. There are things between the heavens and earth that even philosophers cannot dream of.”
@zioncanyon, I didn’t want to add this directly to your posts about Dishonored because it’s sort of a tangent, but I think you’d really like the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett if you haven’t read it yet. It’s one of those rare fantasy series that (in later books) takes a critical view of kingship as a whole. One of the characters starts out as your standard unaware-prince-raised-by-commoners-destined-for-the-throne, but he realizes that the best thing he can do for the city is to not become king.
And one of the best characters in the entire series, who hates kings with a passion, has this to say:
Vimes had never got on with any game much more complex than darts. Chess in particular had always annoyed him. It was the dumb way the pawns went off and slaughtered their fellow pawns while the kings lounged about doing nothing that always got to him; if only the pawns united, maybe talked the rooks round, the whole board could’ve been a republic in a dozen moves.
real talk tho why do people on tumblr feel the need to police other’s portrayals of a character they chose to play and you did not. and if you did, hey good job but your portrayal is not their portrayal so sit your saggy arse back down and get in your lane. ty.
