forever in your arms...

Felt the need to write some post-Underworld comfort and intimacy. (a bit spoilery if you haven’t been following casting spoilers) Rated S for smuff. (FF / AO3)

He’d seen the sun rise and set from the bow of his ship, an entire day with his eyes on the ocean as melancholy ripped at his salvaged soul and pressed heavy on his heart. Emma was at home, having left her before dawn with a kiss to her cheek (barely reachable from her position burrowed under the covers) and a note on the counter as to his whereabouts. He knew she wouldn’t disturb him today, would understand his need for solitude. But as each hour passed alone on his ship, he wished more and more for her to be by his side. The calm he once felt with the rise of the tide now pales in comparison to the press of her cheek against his, the warmth of her somehow filling every shadowy corner of his darkened thoughts.

Night has fallen and led him back home, back to her, where he should have been all along. With limbs heavy with fatigue, he trudges through the door, stopping just inside to lean back against the cool surface and close his eyes. She’s there almost in an instant, one arm circling his waist to take his weight while her hand strokes through his hair and pulls his head to her shoulder. Like a boat finally untethered, he sways into her arms, surrendering to her softness, her strength, thankful for both.

“It isn’t fair.”

Mr. Evil Smile is back aka the new Ferrari GTC4 Lusso.

Honestly though, why did Ferrari have to change the name of the FF? That was a great name for it in my opinion. It stood for many things: Family Fun, For Four and Ferrari Four (the real meaning). Why did you have the change the name F*cking Ferrari! ‘Lusso’ means luxury but there aren’t really many changes that make it more luxurious apart from a new infotainment screen.

Aesthetically, it’s very much the same: it’s still got the same evil grin and it still looks like a shoe. It is a facelift, however, so the changes you see are quite minor. The front is now refined and stylised more like the 488 GTB and there is a new alloy design. What is different now is that the rear now has four lights! Well that’s not the most important thing really, those two rear air vents you see to the sides of the numberplate coupled with the rear diffuser and the more aerodynamic front means that the drag coefficient is much lower than the FF.

What I think changes the shape the most is if you look closely at the C-Pillar, so where the roof starts to slope down, you’ll notice that it’s edged now. It was nice and smooth on the FF, and this has changed the top of the rear to look squarer. It almost looks scirocco-like now, but the rear actually now has a roof-mounted spoiler to increase downforce.

You’ll be glad to know that it still has the glorious V12 from the FF which still revs to 8000rpm but with a power-hike: the engine now produces 29 more horsepower bringing it to a total of 680hp. The big change is that the GTC4 Lusso now comes with four-wheel steering like the F12tdf. It can effectively give the car a short wheelbase at small turning angles. The other mechanical changes include a new side-slip control system which will help the GTC4 Lusso get you round even quicker in those adverse conditions.

I never really liked the FF (I did like the engine), and I think this new one looks even more like a hearse. The FF looked prettier, just like the 458 looks prettier than the 488. Nice to see it hasn’t become turbocharged though.

stars lean in a little closer (all because of you)

She has stars in her eyes and the sea in her blood.

Her mind is always elsewhere, far and away from here, and she has a quiet nature about her.

She silently curls up in the window seat in the front of the living room, gazing out at the street. Her toes are covered in mismatched fuzzy socks and her hair is tied into a ponytail after she quietly approached him, simply holding out her elastic before she turned and allowed him to run his fingers through her hair.

captswann asked:

"What the hell! You told me you couldn't sing!"

Sorry this took me a little bit! Here is a little something for you, and thank you for helping me find little ways to work through this stupid block!

Killian Jones didn’t sing. Emma noticed it during their first Christmas. Her mother had put together some Christmas carols, and insisted they all go out caroling as a family. Unable to work their way out of it, she and Killian tagged along, but Emma discovered very quickly that he wasn’t making a sound.

“I don’t sing, Swan,” he grumbled on the way home.
