More Adrienette for the soul

I mean if Magnus is so in awe of Alec giving him a gift what else can Alec do that hasn’t happened to Magnus in a long time? Let’s say making a meal.

They had plans to go out one night but an emergency happens in Spain that leads to Magnus spending pretty much his whole day there and texts Alec that he’s too tired to go out, rain check?
When he eventually portals home after an exhausting day he smells something wonderful wafting through the loft and finds the table set up complete with candles and a small bouquet and Alec in the kitchen just finishing up making their plates.
Magnus just stands there in wonderment and Alec smiles when he sees him, gives him a hello kiss and tells Magnus to go freshen up.
Magnus doesn’t remember or even if anyone has ever made him a meal like this and after receiving that gift he’s falling even more for this Shadowhunter and wonders who he should thank to have this angel in his life.

Anabasis, or: The Persian Expedition, or: the time a bunch of idiot Greek mercs got way too involved in Persian royal family drama

Xenophon was an aristocratic Greek from the city of Athens in the fifth century BC, a student of the philosopher Socrates, a contemporary of Plato, a historian, philosopher and major political thinker in his own right, and one time when he was an idiot twenty-something he managed to get himself involved in the dumbest piece of military adventurism in the Middle East of all time.

Later he wrote a book about it. 

It’s called Anabasis, which is Greek for ‘Upgoing’, and it is my current favourite adventure story. It is full of big personalities, political drama, people getting stressed out about crossing rivers, and stupid battles. I really wanted to share it with you all, but I can’t make everyone read the whole thing, so instead I present Book 1 of the Anabasis, chapters 1-8, abridged:

Chapter One: Prince Cyrus has a bright idea

So in the fifth century BC the Persian Empire - with its heartland in modern Iran/Iraq, and its territory stretching as far as Egypt, Turkey, India, and the Black Sea - is the biggest deal around. It’s the heart of civilisation. The Persians have the best cavalry in the world, and also invented gardening. Meanwhile Ancient Greece is basically forty cats in a sack, where the cats are city-states and the sack is ‘which city-state has the biggest dick?’

*walks in a week late with Starbucks* So, about that Valentine’s Day!

This is for @auro-cyanide, who asked for something from my fics from Teru’s point of view! I couldn’t really make that work though, so I made a new scene and turned it into a crappy Valentine’s oneshot instead… I, I really hope that’s alright, sorry ;u;

(This is set sometime between OCHR and ANLG.)

I'm not okay

Reggie. My heart! I can’t.
Fred you little fudge muffin
Sister MJ is literally me “always helpful if there are two opinions and one of them is my own” 😂
Love how Valerie was all self conscious about the biscuits but the squad was like FOOOOOOOOD
Are Patsy and Delia gonna be sharing then when she comes back? Idk
#NUNSEARCH2K17 has made a development. Nun has been located and a rescue mission needs to be planned. Sister Mary Cynthia is a precious little diamond and needs saving.
If they’d told Trixie she probably would’ve pushed her way in and wheeled her out on her own
That scene where Sister MJ put her hand on the glass.
YAS Shelagh you get your new house
Trixie has a new love interest, you dare hurt her Mr Dentist then be warned you will make a lot of enemies!
Nurse Crane has now moved on from adopting Delia and being a librarian and is now a driving instructor 😂 Sister Winifred has the kind of optimism I aspire to 😂 I need a lie down 😭


My current reads and favorites. Yes, I know I have a lot of tabs open. (23 to be exact) 

If you couldn’t tell SilentRain91 is one of my favorite writers. You should check out all of her stories, there are great long ones (Burning Passion, (L)inked Souls, The Universe Says So, Crimson and bare as I stand) and fantastic one shots/ficlets (Brighter than the sun, Runaway Girl, Spilled Drinks and invitations, Sanctuary). For those wanting a quick smut filled one shot check out (That’s how you say thank you) it’s really good in my opinion. 

Ya’ll should recommend some fanfics to me. I’m always looking for something new. Supercorp fluff is my weakness. Although, I would never deny a good ole smutty fic.

hey so i dont know much about the specifics in kpop so can you tell me if 9 wins is a lot or is this no big deal and super common and other groups have gotten this many wins before and stuff

it kinda is? i mean multiple wins (especially 10+ wins, which i hope we can achieve) are more rare and kinda “reserved” for bigger groups or Very Popular Songs (ex: call me baby, cheer up, rough, luv)

from what i’ve witnessed in kpop, most group average about 5 wins per song, on occasion going beyond that bc of a few factors: theyre an extremely popular group/have a big fanbase (exo, twice), or the song gets extremely popular (cheer up, growl, rough, some). but for the most part, each comeback can usually garner anywhere between 1-6 or so wins (for example, infinite, shinee and vixx usually get about 3 each comeback recently, bts’ highest record currently is 6, similarly with girl groups - usually about 3-6). this really depends on the popularity of the group and how many actual competitors there are for the #1 - which you’ll see a great deal of competing considering twice and bts just came back on the same day

and red velvet usually get about 5 - 6 wins each comeback(icc/rr = 6, ootn/dd = 5), so we average out to 11 wins in the entire year, so the fact that they’ve gotten 9 wins with just ONE song is kinda a big deal.

basically the formula kinda goes:

week 1 - comeback week (usually no wins)

week 2 - winning week! anywhere between 1 and all the trophies available

week 3 - maybe you win again on show champion but this is usually when another group swoops in and wins instead, unless the song gets really big and the group who won last week continues to win, or lack of any real competition (sorry nct) means u continue to win (this is what’s currently happening with rv - not to say the song isnt popular but its no “cheer up”)

week 4: usually the goodbye stages (sometimes groups are still winning here but THAT is really rare - i think i can only remember exo, twice, and apink win in the fourth week)

tldr; it’s really dependant on popularity (but even so, groups people deem popular - like vixx, infinite, shinee, seventeen - don’t get anywhere near 9 wins for one song, at least not recently)

3/?? 💕

I honestly was unsure of submitting this but like, tord the trash pile has found a way into my heart and everyone is saying he might hurt edd.

The Valentine's Roadtrip

Hey everyone! I’m sorry I’m so late with this but here it is! Hope everyone had a good Valentine’s Day with their significant others or their significant selves!

“Maybe we should make it a week…”, Cas murmured.

“A week for what, Cas. Do you want to take a break from hunting for a week? Are you tired, bud?”, Dean said.

"For Valetine’s Day, Dean. For being a human for over thirty years, I thought you would know about it. It was actually started by-”

"I don’t need a history lesson, Cas. I know what Valentine’s Day is, but what does it have to do with us?”

"Don’t you love me?”, Cas said, visibly upset.

Dean gulped. “Of course I do”, Dean said quickly before adding, “Like a brother, obviously”.

Dean sighed, glad he was able to keep his secret for a little while longer.

Meanwhile, Cas had turned around, trying to keep his voice steady.
“Well, I wanted to celebrate our bond by taking a road trip…”

“Valentine’s Day is usually for couples, Cas”

“Well, aren’t we a couple? We’re two people”

“No Cas”, Dean tried to keep his voice calm, not like he was having to explain to his best friend of eight years and his crush of four years that they can’t go on a roadtrip together for Valentine’s Day when that’s all Dean ever wanted, “It’s for people romantically-you know-invloved?”, Dean stuttered.

“Well, Valentine’s Day was originally for all types of love, Dean, so why don’t we do it anyways? If you’re so afraid of us being mistaken for couple, then why don’t we bring Sam along. But it’s going to be awkward because he and I do not share the same bond as you and I do. Dean, I resconstructed your body and saved you from perdition, so I think it makes sense why Sam and I do not share the saem bond as you and I do, but if you wanted me and Sam to share the same bond we could-”

“Cas, Jesus Christ, yes we can go on the roadtrip if you want. It can just be me and you, or us and Sam, I don’t care. I’m packing my bags. Start packing yours. I’ll meet you outside Baby in twenty minutes”, Dean seethed.

Dean left to his room and Cas’s heart exploded. Sam came out of his hiding spot, looking rather happy.

“He said yes, Sam!”, Cas exclaimed. “It’s all going according to your plan!”.

“Just wait for him to crack, Cas. He’s really in love with you. I know he can be hard sometimes, but you just have to wait for it, okay?”

Cas started grinning the kind of smile that lights up a room.

“I’m going to go pack!”, Cas exclaimed, practically skipping to his room.

The plan was just beginning.
