IN THIS HOUSE WE celebrate black women sculptors because Dark Academia has a slight Michelangelo fetish and sometimes it’s good to mix things up.

the only reason it's called "the dean cave" is because at first when he brought cas in there dean said "do you like my man cave?" waggled his eyebrows. cas stared at him. then dean said, very suggestively "you know... my man cave?" To which cas makes his little annoyed scronch face and said "yes, dean, you know that I do". when sam finds out he forces dean to change the name but obviously "the dean cave" is almost even worse and so now there's a room in the bunker dedicated to all trans masc dudes out there

“Hey, you okay?”
Levi looked at you from the other side of the couch, concern lacing his features. He knew something was up with how quiet you had been for the past couple of hours. Your usual bubbly and sweet behavior was almost completely gone and your eyes had lost some of their spark. He knew you were trying your best to hide it. Had it been anyone else, they might have just bought your brave facade.
You didn't want to bother him with your problems. He knew that. He knew you.
“Yeah, it's nothing. I'm just tired.” You gave him a tired smile and returned your attention to the tv, subtly trying to play off your anxiety and nausea on your hectic schedule.
Only Levi knew better. He could read you like an open book. Reading people was his specialty, and he could read you better than anyone else.
“Aha, if you say so.”
He got off the couch and headed towards the kitchen. A pang of disappointment hit you the moment he left. Did he really buy your lie this time? As much as you didn't want to bother him, you wanted his reassurance and comfort more. Tears started welling in your eyes. You wiped them quickly and told yourself to suck it up and shake it off. You gave him clear indication that nothing was wrong, so you couldn't exactly blame him for his actions.
He returned to the living room about fifteen minutes later with a Tupperware box in his hand.
He put the box on the table in front of you and simply said, “I'll go get Muffin.”
A smile spread across your lips when you looked at the contents inside the box. A couple slices of lettuce and small cut pieces of strawberry, banana, carrot and bell peppers.
You sat together on the couch, feeding Muffin the tiny bits of fruits and vegetables, laughing and giggling at the bunny's cute behavior.
This was nice, you were feeling a whole lot better already.
Levi watched you intently the whole time, gaging your mood and your reactions. His gaze softened when he saw how you started returning to your normal self.
“Hey brat,” he called out to you, nothing but tenderness in his eyes when you raised your head to meet them, “You know I'm here for you right? You don't have to hide whatever is bothering you from me. I can always tell.”
You turned your gaze to the side, slightly embarrassed, but also incredibly grateful for his efforts.
“Yeah I know. Thank you so much for this.” You flashed him one of your best and most genuine smiles before continuing to pet Muffin.
“Well, good.”
He stayed silent for a solid minute, most likely finding the courage to say what he was about to tell you.
“I love you, you know? I don't like seeing you upset.”
He didn't say it often. He was more the type to show how much he cared as opposed to saying it out loud. The surprise was evident on your face and he felt embarrassment coat his cheeks.
He quickly got up from the couch and mumbled something about putting Muffin back and brushing your hair afterwards.
As you watched his back retreating from the living room, Muffin gently but firmly secured in his arms, you just couldn't help yourself.
“I love you too, Levi.”
He stopped in his tracks, but just barely for a second, before he continued walking.

My headcannon for you is you’d definitely have a flower shop in an alternate universe, then you’d meet your current partner there and find out they own a coffee shop nearby and every morning you go over there to get some coffee before opening your flower shop.
Then when you guys go on a date, you’d have special picked flowers with sweet meanings and you’d explain what every flower means to them
oh my goshes honestly i feel this in my bones. i have always loved flower/coffee shop aus... marcy could tell you... well, really, a scan of my ao3 page or the first fic i ever read could tell you :')) <333
i love this so much owhohohohoho and explaining all of it to my dearest would be such a win...
the name i picked out is a flower,, so its rather fitting,, thank you so much wahh this is so sweet,, @blushyaxolotl !!! look!!!!!!!!
thank you arii illysm *cries and sobs and hugs you*

Chaotic Neutral and I just realized that we had met before that day in the waiting room.
I was flipping through some photos of old concerts I’d been to. We were talking about the Linkin Park concert I went to with my brother and now sister-in-law. He was telling me about how he’d gone to one too. He said the girl in front of him had dropped her phone at one point and he got it from under the seats. Which was so funny because I dropped my phone at the concert and the guy behind me helped me find it. 
So I flipped through the photos that I had but none were of us in the seats. I sent my sister-in-law a text to see if she still had the pictures and she found them and sent them to me. There’s one of her, my brother, and I in our seats between bands. 
My fucking husband!
This was 2007 so I would’ve been 16. He would’ve been 22. 
I mean, we had a split 5 minute interaction, BUT WE BOTH REMEMBERED IT! HOLY SHIT.

You are an incredible blessing to this fandom. A bright ray of sunshine and joy. Please don’t change and please keep sharing your amazing mind with us. As a gift for all you do for us, I thought I would give you a gift. I am a fan of your UB as coffee drink ideas so I have something for you. Maybe I need to write the other drinks. But I wonder what painful concoction the LT would be?
(Pt1) She wrapped her lips delicately around the edge of the mug. Tipping it to bring the liquid, warm and inviting, to her mouth. Her face flushed at the thoughts that passed across her mind. This was a drink she had started making only recently. A recipe that was created wholly with him in mind. His body warm on her’s like the warmth of the milk within her cup. The right temperature to make her mind slip to other touches. Subtle hints of cinnamon finding that perfect balance.
(Pt2) Too much and you are in danger, too little and you miss the pleasure of that spice. His kisses sweet as the honey. Sweet words whispered in her ear and washing over her body and relaxing her in ways only he can. And a tiny dash of cayenne. That hotness blending with the sweetness, and the rest of the drink, to provide an all too delicious reminder of him.
(La Fin) She closed her eyes and thought back to last night with him in her room. “Looks like I should maybe give you and that drink some time alone,” Mason's voice teased low and a bit husky from the door of her office. She sputtered into her drink, splashing some of the liquid down the front of her shirt. Of all the people to catch her in this daydream. She blushed as his eyes lingered on the spot staining the curves of her chest. “Or better yet, I can help you out of those clothes.”
I wish I could tell you how in love with this I am, but I wouldn’t be able to express it. This is so beautifully written from a silly little random thing I posted and it’s with my favorite character. I could cry omg and the end of it was so so perfect. 
Thank you, whoever you are that sent this to me. It has totally turned my day around and I love and appreciate you for it :’)

Two soft knocks were followed by the creak of hinges as you lifted your head from your folded arms, creases from the fabric joining your features.
“You submitted it then?” He asked, stepping into the room slightly, leaning against the door frame.
“Mhm” you yawned, the solid 8 hours you got the night before rendered useless the moment you cursor hovered over the “Submit Application” button, all the strength you had suddenly drained.
“Good work.”
A soft pat on your head had you smiling before you felt your body moving, twirled around in your computer chair to face decidedly away from your setup.
“Let’s get you back to bed. I’ll order us some chicken for lunch, but try to nap until then. Then you’re taking the rest of the week, and the weekend off to relax. With me.”
CHAPTER 2??? CHAPTER 2 :0!!! OF THE STRESSED READER ((anlian)) X LEVI SAGA 😍 Y’all are too nice. too damn nice. I like can’t even believe this... the heart is boink boink and the tears are flowing. You lovely humans are too pure for this earth and I have big crushes on all of you :’) Also, can I just say, if Levi said, “Let’s get you back to bed.” I would EVAPORATE. THOSE WORDS WOULD DISINTEGRATE ME. BYE BYE. RIP ANLIAN. But then. But thennnn, if he said, “I’ll order us some chicken for lunch.” OH MAN. THAT WOULD BRING ME RIGHT TF BACK TO LIFE 😇😇😇  I love this so much and I love you so much and this is a big big IOU 💌

Y'all I got married today! And it was perfect and wonderful and amazing and have I said perfect because it was perfect?
I wont be posting That Which Fate Creates tonight because, well, I'm spending the rest of the evening with my husband.
(Holy shit I have a husband.)
Also he gave me the new ring so that I don't have to wear the huge engagement ring anymore except for when I want to. This new ring is so beautiful too that I cried when he gave it to me.
Here's the ring and the wedding band which looks cute by itself.

Okay gonna go curl back up with my husband!
