your new friend is very cool

it won’t be like what you imagined. maybe you get the road trip to the beach with coffee in your hand and the radio playing, maybe you don’t. but happy shows up. it’s in a 2 AM game of jenga with your new college friends. it’s curling up for another marathon of netflix. it’s meeting the person who will be your best man at the wedding. it’s 4:45pm in the library when the girl in the study coral across from you quietly whispers “i’m going to set everything on fire” and then turns to you and asks if you wanna take a break for dinner (say yes, she’s very nice and you both need a moment away from the stress). it’s the mornings they have omelettes and in good books and in a puddle that looks cool. it’s sometimes picturesque, but more often it’s full-belly laughter at stupid things on the floor of your friend’s house while in the background someone is debating the best way to win settlers of catan. 

i know it gets dark early now and the tired is setting in and everything sort of feels blank and hazy and you want to spend ages staring at walls thinking of nothing

but happiness will find a way in. it will be small moments. look for them.

Little things you can do to feel better if you are trans and you can’t really transition right now

For guys

  • Baseball caps? Those are good.
  • Short haircuts. If anyone questions, say it’s for convenience.
  • For your neck: fang pendants (very badass). Or a dapper lil bowtie.
  • Big ass stompy boots.
  • Those cool belt buckles. You can get a basic one or something with a cool design (like a dragon!).
  • Don’t shave. Let your body hair grow. Unless you feel uncomfortable.
  • Buy some spicy-smelling perfumes or other cosmetics. Or if there is something that says “Forest” on it, this one is also good.
  • If you can, try some weightlifting. It will make your muscles better and release some of that sweet sweet testosterone. But remember, fat and skinny men are also very handsome, so if you can’t, don’t sweat it.
  • Eat plenty of protein for a testosterone boost. Also, zinc from seafood - like shrimp and salmon especially - will help that chemical magic. Leafy greens, pomegranate, coconuts, garlic also help. Watch out for soy and tofu! They raise estrogen. And raisins are great, but dried apricots are not.
  • Remember that no matter what you are 100% man (unless you are a demiguy/bigender, then you are 50% man or whatever it looks like for you, that is still very cool, and if you are genderfluid and currently a dude, that’s still very good and valid).

For gals

  • Kitten ear beanies are so pure and good (just like you).
  • Let your hair grow to a nice length. If anyone questions, say you found a new style.
  • For your neck: simple crystal pendants (very pretty). 
  • Crystal bracelets!
  • Lil ballet flats.
  • Shaving can make you feel a whole lot better. Remember - some cis girls also have to shave!
  • Just a little bit of lip balm goes a long way. Oh! And clear nail polish!
  • Sweet-smelling cosmetics are your best friend. You can probably get on eBay or in your local store a nice bottle of vanilla body mist.
  • Google some exercises for a bigger butt, if you want to try it. If you can’t, remeber less-curvy women are also beautiful.
  • Eat plenty of soy, flaxseed, sesame seed, dried apricots… I know that those give you a bit of extra estrogen. Apparently coffee can also do it? Getting estrogen from diet is harder. Just eat a lot of tasty fresh food. Remember to treat yourself.
  • Remember that no matter what you are 100% woman (unless you are a demigirl/bigender, then you are 50% woman or whatever it looks like for you, that is still very cool, and if you are genderfluid and currently a lady, that’s still very good and valid).

For nonbinary pals

  • Simple beanies.
  • Google “androgynous/unisex hairstyles”. Look how many cool options you have! You might tweak one to your needs, like make it longer, or shorter, or add some cool hair dye…
  • For your neck: scarves. They come in many colors and patterns, cover up your neck so you don’t get cold, also you can hide your neck bump or lack thereof.
  • Friendship bracelets!
  • Trainer shoes.
  • Baggy hoodies are really nice.
  • You can shave and don’t wear makeup. Or rock the beard and eyeshadow look. Or really, anything else.
  • Cosmetics? Citrus and lavender are considered unisex scents. You can also wikiHow to Make Perfume and mix some scents you like at home.
  • Exercise, if you are healthy enough to do it, is good. Try running and yoga. Remember, media sells us the myth that androgyny=thinness, but it’s bullcrap. Fat, curvy, muscular people can all be nonbinary and/or androgynous.
  • You can look up the guys and gals sections too. Maybe you will find something that helps you.
  • Remember that your identity is 100% valid and true, no matter what. Yes, any kind of identity. No matter if it’s a neutral void or a mix of everything, no matter if it’s stable or changes. It’s valid because you are valid.

I’m gonna start an anime convention that’ll be two weeks long, and at the end I walk in and say “thank you everyone for coming to my birthday party. Please leave your gifts at the exit.” everyone then has to leave through a very narrow hallway where I wait with a VERY large and intimidating security guard named Alf who checks everyone’s bags as I ask them what they brought me for their birthday. Intimidated and feeling guilty for not getting me anything, everyone gives me something nice they bought at the con. the con-goers all make a cool new friend named Alf I make off with thousands of dollars worth of Hatsune Miku figures. This convention will be called…. The Long Con

I see all your ‘Kara is jealous of Reign’ headcanons and raise you-

While Lena and Kara are just realizing that there just might be something between them, Lena meets (or reunites with?) Samantha March and they become very close very quickly. 

But when Lena gushes to Kara about her new friend and her new friend’s cool daughter (à la the lunch scene in which Lena expresses her excitement about her relationship with Rhea) Kara has a serious but unreadable look in her eyes that confuses Lena.

So their inevitable meet up puts Lena on edge, and the internet boards in response to “Friend acting weird about other friend??” that propose jealousy as the answer may make Lena excited about the possibility of Kara having feelings for her, but they also do nothing for her nerves regarding this predicament. 

So she puts their meeting off for quite a while. 

Eventually, to her surprise, Kara is the one who insists on meeting Samantha, proposing that the three of them go out to dinner for Lena’s birthday. Having already agreed to dinner with Kara that night, she can’t exactly say she’s busy. And she can’t say that she’d prefer it to just be the two of them, because that’s dangerously close to admitting her feelings for Kara. 

So she reluctantly agrees.

When the date arrives, Samantha is waiting for the at their table, and when they reach the table and Samantha stands up, Lena’s heart practically ceases beating for the few seconds Kara and Samantha look at each other, silently.

And then Kara simply puts her bag down, walks directly up to Samantha, and gives her a not as crushing as it rightfully should be hug, to both Lena and Samantha’s surprise. 

(Meanwhile, Samantha throws a “you weren’t kidding about this girl” look to Lena over Kara’s shoulders)

And as it turns out Kara is just??? so grateful??? that Lena has another close friend who gets how great she is?? 

She was kinda tentative at first, because Lena became so attached to her friendship with Samantha so quickly, but the more she heard about her, the less she was protective and the more she was just kind of calmly proud and happy for Lena.

And so they hit it off seamlessly. It’s not twenty minutes in before Kara invites Samantha to game night. 

(“Wait…Am I invited?” 

“Hahaha Lena, I had Jess slip it into your schedule weeks ago, silly.” 

“So that’s how you manage to get her away from L-Corp. I’d been wondering what I was doing wrong.” 

“Yeah, that’s part of it. But sometimes I just kinda smile at her? And she does what I want? So you could try that, too.”

“Uh… haha I’m not sure that’ll work for me.”

“Hmm? Why not?”

“UM WOW LOOK A THE TIME IT’S BEEN LOVELY BUT IT’S TIME TO GAY- GO, GOo IT’S TIME TO GO” )

And so the three of them end up doing a lot of hanging out, and Samantha manages not to feel like a third wheel most of the time. And Kara’s happy to see Lena with a support system in National City that goes beyond just Kara and her friends.

So when the time comes that Samantha needs them, when Reign begins to overpower her mind and make her target Supergirl, it’s Lena and Kara who work together to bring Samantha back to herself.

Senior year advice and how to make senior year effective

So it’s your senior year in high school and you’re probably super excited for the year to come. You finally get to go to college and become your own person, pursue your dream, or maybe just get away from the bullshit. So here’s some of my best advice to make senior year a good one: 

SENIORITIS WILL HAPPEN

  • There is literally no way you can avoid this. It’s like a deadly parasite that just consumes you. It’s very effective, especially if you’re surrounded by people who have already entered the “fuck school I just want it to be over” phase. 
  • The way senioritis works is, the busier you are, the less it will  hit you. I was a pretty active student year round. I had tennis , our drama one acts in the fall, FFA,  plus work. In the spring semester I had our school play, track, and I joined our FFA vet science judging team (which helped kept me focus ) . 
  • Winter is honestly the only time you should indulge lazyness. Get it out of your system and devote the rest of your school year to being productive

DON’T FILL YOUR SCHEDULE WITH TEACHER ASSISTANT AND OFFICE AID ELECTIVES 

  • The one thing colleges love to see (besides student involvement and volunteer hours) is that you have a REAL schedule lined up for you your senior year. Get classes that apply to what you want to do in college, or find classes that you think you might be interested in. You never know if that could be the deciding point on what you want to do with your life. 
  • Honestly, it’s going to suck when all your friends have relaxing classes most of the day and you have stacks of homework to do your senior year (trust me i’ve been there) but in the long run, colleges will thank you, and senioritis I can guarantee won’t hit you as bad when you’re taking classes that challenge and interest you. 

AP CLASSES

  • This is honestly all preference and knowing your limits, but if you have never taken a AP class your high school career you should probably take one. High school classes are NOTHING like college. AP prepared me more for college and studying then any mandatory classes i’ve ever taken
  • KNOW. YOUR. LIMITS. I only took one AP class my senior year because I knew I would be working and doing a lot of school involvement. Some people liked to make their schedule mostly AP classes because in may when they take their AP exam they just chilled for the remaining of the school. Personally I think that’s a dumb idea, because then you’re just wasting your time for a couple of weeks and it’ll make you want to ditch class, etc. 

APPLYING TO COLLEGE

  • PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD APPLY EVERYWHERE
  • You never know what schools you’re actually going to get accepted to. You may think you have stanford in the bag and only apply to that school. But if you get rejected and have no where to turn but a local community college, your life will suck. 
  • Don’t worry about being undecided,  a lot of people are in the same shoes as you are, and college will understand
  • BRAG ABOUT YOURSELF. When you do those little “why should we accept you essays” you need to write yourself as the shiny little gold nugget that you are. Have confidence in yourself
  • When applying to out of state: you better know your shit. No one is going to help you as much because your councilors only know about local and state colleges. Especially when you decide to go to out of state college, KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING. Always check your emails and follow the college steps like it’s your lifeline or you’ll miss something. 

SCHOLARSHIPS 

  • Just apply to all of them. Trust me on this because I can guarantee you half of your graduating class would have not applied to a single one of them 
  • Don’t be lazy 

“SENIOR YEAR IS THE BEST YEAR OF YOUR LIFE”

  • This is complete bullshit but it also depends on each person
  • Senior year is honestly like every other year but you’re expected to be more of an adult. No one is going to make you apply to colleges and no one is going to make you do anything.
  • Senior year isn’t like it is in the movies, you won’t be partying all the time and not every second of it is going to be perfect. You might lose some friends and some things you love will change. It’s a very emotional and exciting time, make the most of it. 
  • Spend as much time with your high school friends because you’ll probably never see them again. That girl that you’ve been soccer buddies with all 4 year is probably never going to text you again, so make the most of your friends. 
  • Attend all the high school events. It’s the last time you’ll ever be able to do it, so make some memories. 

SOME ADVICE TO FRESHMEN 

  • Don’t be scared
  • you’re going to lose some friends and make new ones
  • but for the love of god get involved. it’s not “cool” to be a slacker. Honestly you’ll have a better experience and things will go by a lot faster.
  • Do your damn homework, it actually counts in high school
  • be nice to your teachers
  • make the most of your high school experience. It goes by faster then you think. 

Context: My character, a Tiefling Magus came upon a temple that looks really old. He’s really interested in it and what it may lead him to.

DM: Farlas, you come upon a temple. There is a way in, and a way up.

Me: I go up and investigate anything of interest.

DM: There’s an altar with the inscription “To complete the ritual, one must sacrifice another of extreme power.”

Immediately, I call over the character the DM assigned to my friend who’s character had just died, who he planned on killing off when my friend finished making up his new character. His name is Armstrong.

Armstrong: Do you require comfort, friend?!?!

Me: *embraces the large Goliath who is very strong*

Also me: I summon my Longsword behind his back and stab him. *Rolls 23*

DM: As Armstrong whimpers, you plunge your blade into his back. His blood falls to the ground and you hear a slight clicking sound coming from underneath your feet.

Me: I want to roll to persuade him to continue to stay on my blade. *Succeeds*

Me (ooc): So, am I just gonna kill him an cool shit is gonna happen?

DM: We shall see.

Everyone in the party: *simultaneously dying of laughter*

Later on, Armstrong was killed twice, eaten, and Farlas got a magical (hopefully) mechanical arm.

anonymous asked:

Hello, I love your blog! In a few months I'll be moving to a new city for a new job. I've moved around before, but I've always moved with family members (which makes it easier I think) and this will be my first time living completely alone in a new place. I'm also a bit of an introvert and can have a hard time finding friends. Do you have any tips on making this transition a bit smoother and staying social? Thank you!

Living On Your Own (For the First Time)

1. PKW. Phone, keys, wallet. Every time you go anywhere. Check twice. The worst part of living on your own is having to rely on yourself to never forget to lock yourself out or leave your wallet at a sandwich shop in a mall. Make absolutely sure you have duplicates of your keys (I would get a couple made) and give one to a friend who lives nearby who you can count on. I also like to keep an extra set inside the apartment itself in a secure place, just in case. Your landlord can let you in during office hours, but giving a key to a trustworthy friend helps you 24/7.

2. Cleaning routine. You don’t have to sit down at a writing desk and draft this out, but spend a few minutes coming up with a basic cleaning regime for you to follow. It’s definitely easier to do a little each day, but if that doesn’t work for your schedule set aside at least an hour and a half during your time off to get your apartment spotless. I don’t know about you, but whenever I deep clean my apartment I feel like I’m living in a hotel for a day, and I absolutely love it.

3. Make a “moving” shopping list. This is everything you will need (minus food) for your first week at your new place. First aid kit, cleaning supplies, tape, cat food, etc. Your first week moving into your new place will be stressful enough, you don’t want to be halfway through setting up your living room and realize that you forgot to buy trash bags.

4. Secure yourself. I’m not the most agile or fast person in the world, and I do live in a mid-sized city that has a good deal of crime. The apartment complex I live in is very safe, but I still like to double lock my front door at night. It might be smart to keep some pepper spray or a baseball bat somewhere in your apartment, just in case.

5. Stay social. Even the most anti-social person gets lonely. Make sure to hang out with your friends, not just your co-workers, your actual friends. Get out off your apartment every few days and go see a movie, get a cup of coffee, go people watching at the park, etc. It’s easy to get depressed if you’re living alone and doing the same things the same way every day- allow yourself to mix it up.

6. Meal prep. It can be stressful and seem useless to cook complicated or “fancy” meals when you’re living on your own. Plan your meals for the week and make a list before going shopping. Get yourself enough food to make a variety of dinners that will only take you fifteen minutes. If you do want to go crazy and make steak and mashed potatoes for yourself, make enough for two meals. Also, nobody is going to think poorly of you for stocking your fridge with a couple frozen dinners.

7. Customer service. Living alone means that you are going to be doing a lot of talking to customer service representatives. Get comfortable talking to people over the phone. Tell the rep what you need as quickly as you can, and try to be polite because customer service at a phone center is a garbage job that doesn’t pay well. On the flip side, don’t be afraid to ask for a manager if you’re upset or unhappy with your service. Take their survey at the end of your phone call, tell them how unhappy you are. It’s someone’s shitty job to look at all those surveys, no complaint goes unheard. Companies with great phone service: Verizon, Apple, Amazon. Companies with awful phone service: USPS (literally the worst), electric companies, health insurance companies.

8. Guest space. This is not required, but it’s a good idea to have some sort of space for a friend to stay the night. A friend of mine had a bad breakup, showed up at my apartment with ten minute’s notice, and then fell asleep on my couch after an hour of crying. It as 7:30! Whatever, she needed it. Keep an extra blanket and pillow in your closet, I like to keep travel sized shampoos and conditioners in my bathroom cabinet on the off chance a guest wants to use my shower. I got these at a hotel for free, but they’re available at CVS and other pharmacies.

9. Toilet paper. Don’t let yourself run out of toilet paper! I like to buy more when I notice I only have one roll left. The same deal goes for paper towels.

10. Enjoy. Living on your own is simoltaneously exciting and exhausting, but an all around must-have experience. Enjoy the freedom to forget to make the bed, to decorate your bathroom however you want, to have ice cream for dinner, to watch reruns of Friends and cry when Rachel decides to move to France. Make sure to give yourself lots of space to move at your own pace, but please remember to eat three meals a day and to go to the doctor’s for a checkup at least once a year!

Making Friends

First things first- we as humans are social creatures. We seek out social interaction, even the most antisocial person in the world still needs the occasional stimulating conversation. Don’t stress about making friends, it’ll happen one way or another.

The best friendships are created organically, but that said, there are some things you can do to quicken the process.

1. Friends by proximity.  Be social and inquisitive when meeting your new co-workers and that openness will help you create fast friendships. Ask lots of questions, people love it when you ask them lots of questions about things. Remember elementary school? Remember how easy it was to make friends then? You’ve got this.

2. Places. Hang out at places that you would normally hang out with your friends. Scope out cool bookstores and cozy coffeeshops, and be on the lookout for similar-minded people. Find reasons to talk to these strangers, whether that means asking them for directions, what they’re drinking, etc. The next time you run into them, you’ll be able to start up a conversation.

3. Events. One of the quickest ways to make lots of new friends is to join a group that meets weekly that does something that’s important to you. This could be anything from a book club, to a Dungeons and Dragons game, to volunteer work. Go to your local library and read the bulletin board looking for groups that interest you. You may have to get on the internet to find something close by. At the very least you’ll have a weekly social event to go to where you won’t feel out of place.

4. Neighborly. This next one depends on you, but if you have cool looking new neighbors introduce yourselves to them. Hit them up at random and say something casual like “I was going to go out for a drink, wanna join?” Planning things in advance puts pressure on acquaintances, so try to be spontaneous.

If any of my followers have any ideas, please chime in! And good luck!

Hi Robin! Just wanted to drop by and say you're an amazing animator! Your block chibi characters are so adorable and holy crap I love your editing skills! Whether it's for Anti videos or something silly like Turmoil, it's so cool! And when you and Jack play together I have the biggest grin on my face. You're awesome dude! :D Have a fantastic day like the boss you are!

Well thank you! That’s very sweet! The animations is pretty much what started all of this, so luckily people seemed to enjoy them! But I’m glad it’s been working out, with editing and all that, and I’m really glad I have this job, Sean is a great friend too :)

Hopefully I can get the new apartment all set up soon enough, and maybe we can play more stuff again, without me having a massive gross echo :P

Have a nice day to you too!

Energy threading - going beyond visualization

What is energy threading?

It is manipulating directly the matrix beyond the manifestation of energy. Energy circulates in currents, which are well defined and structured and serve different purposes. Seeing beyond how the energy manifests itself, directly into the structure of the currents, allows us to modify the structure itself.

Okay… so what can it be used for?

Everything, really. To heal someone on a surgery scale. To construct powerful seals that will act at wards. To battle, even, but it demands some practice to get it fast enough to be a valuable asset. To manipulate links between objects or people.  To anchor things no one but you will be able to undo, as only you have the blueprints.  As with a lot of energy work techniques, the sky is the limit. Thought this particular technique allows for more delicate and precise maneuvering than just visualizing and hoping the channels form right.

REIVEW #1: OVERWATCH

hey guys its ya girl sara and for my first review i will be reviewing everyone’s favorite new guns game about killing your friends called Over Watch

over watched is a hot new video game made by blizzard inc. about watching over your friends to make sure they dont die as well as watching over your enemies to make sure that they do die. its a personal view gun shooter with guns and shooting. there are many cool, fun, and goofy characters who love to kill and also to have fun and the game is neat and good to play if you are person who loves to die and not die.

graphics: you look at the pictures in this game and think “hey this is very good”. it is smooth and everyone has a face and you can see all of the guns very clearly. its very pretty-looking.

gaming: this is a fun game to play but is also hard. you are going to die and its best to accept that. i often bring my rosary to recite hail marys while i wait for it to load. because i am going to die lots and i seek forgiveness. there are lots of guns to shoot with and they all do something different. the levels are big and good. the game is fun, though it might not be as fun as my favorite game, ecco the dolphin

characters: this is the best part of the hot new videogae ovenwatch in my opininion. they are all nice and sweet and have a lot to say. some of them are mean but it’s ok because they are made up and not real. here’s some of the characters now

this one is called tracy. she is a time traveler. tracy likes to play future video games and eat pizzas. she is a good character.

i think this guy is named….. joke rat? i think he is joke rat. as you can see he has a big gun and wears sun glasses everywhere he goes. he is cool and like to tell jokes but he also made me die many times.

winston! here’s the big ape man everybody is talking about. he loves to eat bananas and shoots coconuts at the enemies to bonk their heads good. i especially love it when he shouts “ook! its your friend and monkey, winston!”

this is is the revolting and mean gun man who is made entirely of guns called Bastard. he shoots and it is all he knows. god has forsaken him and his inventor was excommunicated from the catholic faith. which is good because he is very mean and from hell and he laughs at you when you are dead.

and then this one is named mccreed. a cowboy. i think this is the wrong pic but it might be the horse he rides in on at the start of every round after saying “howdy partners, bum me a smoke?”

music and sound: i didn’t hear any so i can’t say anything about that. it was just “boom!” and “bang! bang!” which is very exciting but then i took the headphones off to listen to the clean sounds of my favorite baroque composer, George Frideric Handel.

overall: overwanch is a really fun game that is exciting to play and makes you learn valuable lessons about friendship, guns, and having a talking ape as a friend. i wish there was a dolphin hero in this game like the dolphin hero of my favorite videogame, ecco the dolphin. maybe if i write to the game makers about it they will add ecco the dolphin to the game. a girl can only hope. i recommend overwatch to anyone who likes guns, being a girl, or losing but sometimes winning. thank you

He wasn’t used to this

No one liked talking to Bucky Barnes, no one talked to Barnes willingly.

So every word you spoke stuck to him like crazy glue, every smile you smiled inspired one of his own, every second you spent with him felt like an experience that he didn’t want to let go. There was something about you that he didn’t want to let go, and he supposed it was the fact that you didn’t treat him like he was dirt on the bottom of your shoe or the fact that you actually looked at him when he looked at you.

You didn’t avoid his gaze out of nervousness like other people did. 

He often wondered if you could tell that he was nervous.

And you often wondered if he could tell that you were nervous. 

Because ever since this piece of art walked into your mediocre life, even if you’d only met him enough times to count on one hand, you were flustered around him. You were nervous when he took you to the arcade after Wanda abandoned you with him and when he’d asked for your number to keep track of ya, ya know, in case someone decides to steal y’away from me and you were nervous when he dropped you off at your door that night.

Even when Bucky wasn’t around, you were stupidly flustered.

You should’ve known that giving your number to Bucky would’ve created some kinda havoc.

Sure, it was the kinda havoc that made you smile like an idiot before texting back after a very specific amount of time so he wouldn’t know you were waiting for his reply, but it was havoc nonetheless. And it was addicting.

No, Bucky Barnes was addicting.

aries: she gives you hugs and tells you she’s proud of your achievements. she’ll arm wrestle you to see if you deserve to get that new video game you want. you lose and they buy it for you anyway.

taurus: shopping with her can not go wrong. she is most likely to buy you fancy/well designed clothing and accessories. she likes collecting memories and hoards photos of you. just a night in with you and a movie are enough. may fight you for the last piece of pizza, though.

gemini: she forgot to pick you up from soccer practice, only because she was so busy browsing the net for that new physics book she thinks you’ll like. very rapid and entertaining conversation with her. trips to the coolest museums with promises of ice cream after.

leo: the mother that will show you off to everyone. proud of you no matter what. their life’s a show and you’re the special act that goes on and on. will help you dress for your dates, and probably can do makeup better than you (makeup is unisex, fyi) she’s your biggest fan, the woman cheering loud enough in the audience even if you mess up your part in a play

aquarius: very caring mothers, actually. they can be cold and distant, but it is not because they don’t love you. they just don’t know how to sometimes. instead of saying it, they’ll be super supportive. she’ll attend all your recitals at school or your band gigs. she’s a good listener and will get you the most thoughtful presents. your friends think she’s weird but they all adore her. whenever you feel lost, she’ll help you find your way. expect weird recipes that actually taste good, and a penchant for all things abnormal and of course, conspiracy theories. is often more worried about things than they let on so please be there for them, too.

pisces: she’s busy painting the sunset to hear you calling her name. her smooth voice is enchanting and lulls you to sleep like chamomile tea. she may cry a lot. not likely to insult you or be rude to you, chastises in a very gentle way. she always picks up on your feelings without telling her and will know exactly what you need. has a better music taste than you, you’re almost tempted to get her to DJ your school dances. she is full of wonder and dreams, sometimes it will feel like she’s the child.

Play thing

Anonymous said: Hi! Can I please request a Christian angst? Where the reader ends up finding out she was just a bet. She’s hurt & leaves but she still loves him. A happy ending if possible please?! Thank you!! 

“Hey [Y/N], don’t look to the right but there’s a group of guys looking at us,” your friend told you. You and your friend were having brunch at a local cafe. It was also a small celebratory feed since you just got offered a new job as a web designer. 

“Are they good looking?” you asked her as you tried not to turn your head. 

“Yes! and oh my god, one of them is heading our way. Be cool, be cool”.

You shuffled in your seat and pretended to go on your phone. 

“Um hi, sorry to bother you but.. I just wanted to say hi”. 

You looked up from your phone and your eyes met with the random stranger. He was very good looking and not to mention, he had some sort of accent. You couldn’t tell which country it was from. 

“Um hi?” you replied to him trying not blush.

The stranger smiled and you couldn’t help but to let a small giggle. Your friend was kicking your leg from underneath the table.

“Sorry, I um this isn’t going well, is it?” he grinned as he ran his hand through his hair. Your eyes were now fixated on his tattoos that ran from his shoulders down to his arms. 

“Her name is [Y/N], in case you were wondering,” you friend told him. You kicked leg and she let out a small whine. 

“[Y/N]? I’m Christian,” he introduced himself with a handshake. 

“Nice to meet you, Christian,” you reached out and shook his hand. 

//

“Hurry up, babe. The last orders at the cafe are at 3pm!” you yelled out from the bedroom. You organised a lunch date for you two since you just got a promotion. Both of you arrived at the cafe and went straight to the cashier to order food. 

“Remember this place?” you asked Christian as you sat down at the table.

“Oh my god, don’t mention it. I was so embarrassed that day. Lucky your friend did all the hard work,” he told you. 

“Hard work? What’s so hard about asking for my name?”

Christian stuck his tongue at you and tried to change the subject. You were now telling him all the perks you got from your promotion. As you were talking about the free weekly team lunches two guys came up to Christian. 

“Hey man! Long time no see,” they greeted him.

“Oh hey! Wassup,” Christian stood up and greeted them. 

You sat awkwardly as the guys huddle around the table. Christian then introduced you to them.

“Babe, these guys were my room mates. We shared a two-bedroom apartment and it was the smallest apartment ever!”

“Yeah, Christian took most of the living space with all his artworks, computer shit and clothes,” one of his friends told you. 

“Hey, haven’t we met before? You look familiar,” the other guy asked you. You raised an eyebrow at him and tried to figure out where he would’ve met you. 

“Umm I’m sorry, I don’t think we’ve met before,” you told him. 

“Are you sure?” he insisted.

“I’m pretty sure,” you insisted back.

“No..hey! You met Christian at this cafe yeah?” 

“Uhh yeah we did. How did you know?”

“Oh shit..Christian, guess you won it. Damn..I guess we all owe you big time”.

You looked at Christian all confused but Christian wasn’t looking at you. He tried to avoid eye contact with you. 

//

The two of you arrived back home and you noticed the car ride was quieter than usual. He didn’t bother suggesting playing car games with you.

“Hey..what did your friend mean when he said you won it and how he owes you big time?”

Christian walked passed you and headed to the bedroom. You followed behind him but as you got in the room, Christian walked out and went straight to bathroom. You hated when he gives you the silent treatment and this time, you didn’t even do anything wrong. So what was his problem?

You sat down on the kitchen bench and started to scroll through your Instagram feed. Ding. It was Christian’s phone. You couldn’t help but to see who was messaging him.

Dude!! Can’t believe you’re still with her! We thought the bet was for only 2 weeks. Guess we owe something bigger than $200! 

“Christian! What the hell does this text mean?!” you yelled at him once he got out of the bathroom. You shoved the phone into his face. He grabbed it forcefully from you and read it. Christian threw his phone on the sofa but it bounced off and hit the floor. 

“Forget about it, [Y/N]. My friends are stupid”.

“No, I’m not going to forget it. Am I part of a bet?”

Tears began to fill your eyes and you wipe them off using your sleeves. Christian saw and came to comfort you. He put his hands your shoulders and looked in your tear filled eyes.

“It was just a stupid game we were playing. But it’s over now”.

You pushed his hands off you and began to take a few steps back.

“Bets? Games? From the beginning I was just a play thing to you and $200? You disgust me”.

“I’ts not like that. I-I-I told you, it’s stupid and it doesn’t mean anything now”.

“I can’t believe this! I knew this shit was all too good to be true. How could a guy like you go for a girl like me. Fuck you, Christian! You fucking played me from the beginning!” you spat at him.

“Ok fine! My fucking friends bet I couldn’t get your number and that we wouldn’t last two weeks. But babe, they were wrong. Look at where we are now”.

“What the hell?! You thought of me as a piece of toy that you could just play with and throw away when you’re bored. I’m not a fucking toy! This relationship is based around a game. And I’m not your babe. Not anymore”.

“What?! Are you breaking up with me? Just let me explain, please?”

“Explain what? I know what I need to know already. You played me from the beginning!”

You turned towards the front door but Christian grabbed you wrist and turned you around.

“If I played you from the beginning then why are we still together? We have been for nearly 2 months. And yes, I did went along with the bet but after our second date, I knew I couldn’t let you go. When I woke up and saw you sleeping next to me, I was so happy. I thought to myself, I could get use to this image every day for the rest of my life. It started with a bet but I ended up falling in love with my other half. You, [Y/N]. I fell in love with you. You’re my everything”.

“Save those words for the next time you decide to play with some girl’s poor heart”. 

You took his hands off your wrist and you walked out the door.

//

You have been staying at your friend’s house for the past 3 days. You didn’t try to contact Christian in any way at all. But you knew, your friend has been. The other night, you overheard her telling Christian the you’re staying with her and that you needed time to think. She was right. You needed space to clear your head. What Christian did was selfish. Who plays these stupid games? 

“Hello?”

“Hi, is this [Y/N]?”

“Speaking”.

“Hi [Y/N]. I’m Lauren and I’m calling from the hospital. We have a patient by the name of Christian Yu who is currently in intensive care and the reason why you are receiving this call is because you’re Mr Yu’s emergency contact. Are you able to come down here now?”

“Oh my god. Yes, yes I can come now”.

“That’s good. Please come to reception when you arrive and they will tell you where to go”.

You rushed out of your friend’s house and headed to the hospital. Why did Christian do that has landed himself in the hospital?  Did he have an accident?  Is he going to be alright? Questions began clouding your mind as you sat in the back of the taxi. You arrived at the hospital and the receptionist told you where Christian was. She told you that he just got out of intensive care and is now resting. You were relief to hear that. You reached his room and you turn the door knob. The first thing you saw was his tattooed arm hanging off the bed. You slowly walked in and closed the door behind you. 

You reached the bed and saw Christian sleeping. You saw he had a bandage stuck wrapped around his head. You moved his hair out of his face and you saw how slim he looked. He even had dark circles underneath his eyes. You placed his arm back on the bed and that woke him up. His eyes slowly opened as you sat down beside him. You held onto his cold hands so you rubbed them, hoping to warm them.

“Hey…” 

“Hey Christian,” you smiled at him.

“You’re here,” he murmured.

“I am. The hospital called me because apparently I’m your emergency contact?”

“Yeah..I put your name down when I went to the doctor’s the other day. I should’ve told you, I’m sorry”.

“It’s fine, I don’t mind. So what happened to you?”

“All I can remember is walking home at night and the next thing I know, I face planted the footpath. I woke up and doctor said I had fainted”.

“Fainted? My god. You probably fainted because you haven’t been taking care of yourself, right?”

“It’s been hard, you know. Your friend told me to give you space but fuck, I didn’t know how long and I just-”

“This is my fault. I’m the reason why you’re in here”.

“What? This isn’t your fault. I wasn’t taking care of myself properly”.

“Yeah..but I walked out on you and…”

“I don’t blame you for walking out on me. I deserved that. What I did to you was wrong”.

You smiled at him and kissed his hands.

“You know, when I got the phone call from the hospital my heart stopped. I thought of all the possible scenarios. I thought you were in some kind of accident. You had me worried, asshole”. 

Christian let out a small chuckle.

“I’m sorry and I promise you, I’ll never put you through that again. So.. can I now call you ‘babe’?”

“On one condition, I don’t ever want to hear about that bet and if you’re ever hanging with those guys, I’m not joining”.

“You just mentioned two conditions, babe. Maybe you need a doctor to check you”.

You let his hands dropped to the bed. 

“I’m serious, Christian”.

“I know, I know. I’ll never bring it up ever again and don’t worry about those guys, I won’t be hanging out with them. And if they want to catch up, I’ll say no”. 

Tony Stank?

@superfandomqueen said:Prompts 1, 3, 5, and 19. They don’t have to be in the same fic, but I would like them for Peter Parker.
1.“You can’t solve your problems by hiding in bed all day”

3.“This is gonna sound cheesy but… I love when you’re half asleep and talking nonsense.”

5. “Is that my hoodie?”

19.“That’s my ex. Makeout with me and make him jealous.”

The relationship between you and Peter Parker was, by far, the strangest one anyone had ever seen. The two of you were originally friends, him introducing himself on your very first day at your new school, Midtown School of Science and Technology. He was a stuttering mess the first time he spoke to you, his awkward and clumsy side of him showing. He tried to keep his cool, wanting to impress the newest, and according to him, cutest student in the school.

The two of you were strictly platonic at first, neither one of you developed such as fast crush on each other, it happened slowly over time. Yet, the two of you didn’t act very platonic at all, holding hands, flirty banter back and forth, him carrying your books like the proper gentleman he was. Michelle and Ned rolled their eyes whenever you two claimed to be only friends, but the two mutual friends could see right through the facade.

The moment Peter realized his feeling for you was like any other day, he had gone to your house after his internship to help you study for midterms. You opened the door for him, which he only used if your parents were home, he usually used your window if they weren’t. He dropped his backpack onto the bed and hung his coat on the chair in your bedroom. He turned to you, a pale blue sweatshirt hung on your body, far too big.

He raised an eyebrow at you as you read from your notes. “Is that my hoodie?” He asked, pointing a finger at the attire. You looked down at it, shrugging your shoulders.

“Probably.” You replied.

And Peter thought that you were the most beautiful person in the world. Though you barely tried to look presentable; your hair was a bit messy from running your fingers through it all day, a pair of black skinny jeans that were accompanied by the hoodie, a pair of socks with cats on them. Peter thought that the way you looked with the book in your hands was mesmerizing, he watched as your facial expressions changed, he found it adorable.

And from that moment on, he thought everything you did was beautiful.


The first kiss you and Peter shared together was unlike any other.

The two of you had gone to party, against your will. It had been one of Liz’s parties, and word had spread to other schools so it was larger than usual. You and Peter sat on the couch, talking about the last party Liz had. Turning your head to the sound of people cheering the the alcohol. You whipped your head around, back to Peter with wide eyes.

“What?” He asked with a mouthful of pretzels.

“That’s my ex. Makeout with me and make him jealous.” You replied.

“What?” Peter repeated.

“Kiss me, please.” You practically begged.

And how could Peter Parker deny that request? He simply couldn’t, he had a big, fat crush on you. So he leaned in, and you did too.

The relationship developed further from there. Peter Parker was officially your boyfriend three weeks after the kiss, he had admitted how long he had been wanting to kiss you, you doing the same.

Peter had called you over the night Tony Stark had taken his beloved suit away. You arrived later that night when May had gone out. You frowned at the sight of your boyfriend, blankets covering his body as he stated up at the ceiling.

“You can’t solve your problems by hiding in bed all day.” You said, crawling into his bed beside him.

“I bet I can.” He replied, pulling you to his side. He rested his head on your stomach, you ran your fingers though his hair. “I lost it.” He mumbled. “The suit.”

“I know, baby.” You whispered, placing a kiss on his head.

“I don’t know what I’m going to do.” He said, his voice cracking. “I feel so lost.”

“You don’t need the suit to be Spider-Man, Pete.” You reassured. “You were Spider-Man before the suit and you’ll be Spider-Man without it again.”

“I just-“

“Peter,” you cut him off. “You do not need that suit. You’re still amazing. You’re still a hero. You’re still the greatest person I have ever met. So what if you lost some flashy, tight suit?” You moved positions so that you straddled his lap, placing your hands on his cheeks. “It was flashy and cool and it made your body look great but you’re just as amazing with out it and you don’t need some ignorant asshat like Tony Stank talking down to you.”

“Tony Stank?” Peter asked with a chuckle.

“I’m tired, shut up.” You replied. “You don’t need some guy who wears a tin can’s approval of you.”

“Tin can?”

“Peter.”

This is gonna sound cheesy but… I love when you’re half asleep and talking nonsense.” Peter said, kissing your forehead.

“I love you, Peter Parker.” You admitted.

“I love you most.”

“Probably not.”

saturndream  asked:

Hi!! ive been on tumblr for a while (and following you for a while haha) and i just haven't been growing. im active and posting alot of my own pics but i havent gottan any new followers in 2 months! do you have any tips?

hello! first of all thank you so much for sticking around yay love yaaa! 💟 here’s a slightly elaborate (and quick) list of my tips to gain more audience:

1. ask ppl to check your blog! a little note that some people might find this annoying!! i find this okay bc i constantly feel the need to find and discover new blogs! however, that is not always the case for everyone. please do check the faq of every person before hitting up their asks!
2. make/post your own content. simple ones like cute photos, selfies, thoughts, etc. please do tag other people who can reblog it for you too! in my case, my tag is: peachisty! this really helps in gaining more notes i believe. this is because more notes = more audience!
3. get a nice lay-out, personalize it. dont just settle for the lay-out you took from the theme-garden. style it! literally the codes are everywhere in google! but if you have no idea where to start, feel free to hmu! i know lots of css stuff and im p much skilled with web designing so yeah :~)
4. choose your blog style and stick with it! in my case, it’s personal/art/positivity i guess? changing your blog style once a month doesn’t help tbh bc people want consistent content! and having literally super random stuffo is chaotic i believe?
5. get a nice, catchy url and dont just leave it around!!! dont change ur url everyday! my url is p much a gem so i dont rlly think i will ever ever change it tbh haha. i do have some saved ones that are centuries old btw!! if u dont have something in mind, feel free to hmu so i can give em to you
6. talk to your pals !!! may it be thru saying: “if u ever need somebody to talk to im here!” or thru posting updates about you or your day!! i think it just makes me feel safe and happy to read regular updates about ppl on my dash!!! i guess the same goes for other ppl!
7. make your own tag and reblog the stuff ppl tag you into!!! usually, your tag may be your url bc it’s easier to remember! i think this helpz bc u can gain pals thru exchanging of posts tooo
8. make a faves page! haha idk, but faves page made me discover tons of really cool blogs!!!!!! this assures u new mutuals too!!! mutuals that match your aesthetic! ;)
9. join networks. this did not entirely help me in gaining followers but it did help me gain friends!! this is bc networks treat each other like family!!! and idk!! that’s the very reason why i made tumblr tbh!! to meet new beautiful ppl that have the same aesthetics and passion as mine!! networks give u that! along with it, u can do group blog rates, follows, etc!
10. follow similar blogs! this is p much obvious! u follow similar blogs in order to have similar posts on your dash that u can easily reblog! also, if u have the same content, there is a huge possibility that the person will follow u back!!

last note: i want you to know that it is never about the amount of followers!! if you’re using tumblr as a platform to showcase your art: im pretty sure it feels more validating to have sum ppl recognize your talent but please do not entirely depend on it! dont stop making art just because you dont have lots of audience! the amount of ppl who sees your art =/= your skills ok !!!!! :0 at the end of the day… if you come to think of it… i can delete this blog and im back to 0?? i mean… do you get me? you’re still youuu! :)

i hope this helps !! good luck on your journey bb 🐝
