Also! Forgot to add this! I’ve been seeing people talk about shoving semi-precious gemstones places where they don’t belong. Don’t do that. Terrible idea. Leave that to the professionals. Like, those previously-mentioned moms have really weird ideas about what those things can do.
Hi! I’m not dead! I’m surprised so many people are still sticking around listening to what I post every once in a blue moon, but I wanted to enthuse about the new Prince album... It just came out today!! It’s called Musicology, and it’s SO much better than all the stuff he’s been pushing out for the past three years.
The school year just started here, so there’s lots of moms coming in to try and de-stress while their kids are at school... We’ve gone three whole days without one of them flirting with me! ) :-}
Jotaro takes one look at Okuyasu's creepy, decrepit house and determines that it's not fit for a teenager to live in. Using his connections with the Speedwagon Foundation, he vows to help Okuyasu rebuild it from scratch so he can finally live in the happy, safe home he deserves.
Okuyasu is a bit overwhelmed with the complicated feelings that the change brings, but with his newfound friends and family supporting him, he comes to realize that he is more than worthy of what he’s been given.
Josuke wakes up from a nightmare, in which he acted possessive and manipulative over his S/O, and they comfort him.

CW: Yandere!Josuke, Nightmares
“Ow-!! J-josuke, please, that hurts-”
The anxiety in your voice caused Josuke to tighten his grip around your wrist even more, giving you a bit of a prideful smirk as he watched your eyes grow wet. Your adorable, fearful reaction was so incredibly thrilling to him, so addictive, that he couldn’t help but salivate a little as he pulled you even closer to him. Without batting an eye at your quickly reddening skin, he spoke up.
“You just have to do as I say. It’s not that hard. If you listen to me, then I have no reason to be so strict with you. It’s all for the sake of your wellbeing, you know? I hate when I have to hurt you... But you know that, don’t you?”, his voice was low, but intense; even more so as he made direct eye contact with you. It was all just a game... a little game that you two were playing, and a game that you could never win. Josuke enjoyed that power over you greatly. That position where he was able to watch and control you at his will. His cute doll...
No... no, this wasn’t right.
This simple thought shot through his mind, and tore through the entirety of this bad dream. Just a few seconds later, he found himself awake in his bed, next to [ y | n ]... just the way he fell asleep the night before. Josuke’s head sank back onto his pillow, his hair feeling cold and wet from how much he was sweating. So many thoughts began to pour into his head at the same time... It would take a while for him to find his way back to reality.
“Josuke...?”, there was your voice saying his name again; but this time, it didn’t sound like it was being choked by tears. Only a bit raspy from just being woken up, and not being used to talking yet.
“Yeah, I’ll be fine... I’m sorry for waking you up...”
The heavy feeling in his chest lingered, though... he sat up now, trying to shake it off by focusing on his breathing. [ y | n ] was fine... everything was fine...
“Did you have a nightmare?”, you asked him, inching a bit closer to him. Though Josuke flinched a little when you touched his shoulder, he seemed relieved by the fact that you wanted to talk. He was so sensitive in his heart, even if he tried to act like that wasn’t the case.
“[ y | n ], am I a bad partner...?”
“I mean... do I hurt you...”
You couldn’t help but laugh a bit. Not because it was funny, but rather because the mere thought was so ridiculous to you. There was no other man in the world with a heart like Josuke’s. He always did his best to keep you safe, and he was concerned about you - yes, sometimes a bit too much. But did he hurt you? He probably couldn’t even if he wanted to. Still, you knew how awfully realistic these nightmares could be... so you simply continued to gently rub his shoulder.
“No Josuke, you don’t hurt me”, you reassured him.
“You never did. I promise.”
“Are you sure...?”, he turned his head towards you now. It was too dark to see, but it sounded like he was trying hard not to allow himself to cry. Wow, that really bothered him, didn’t it...?
“Are you not just saying that to calm me down?”
“No, Josuke... listen to yourself. Yes, you’re a bit overprotective sometimes... but I know where that comes from. You’re worried, because you’re scared of losing me, aren’t you?”
A small nod was his response, accompanied by a sniffle.
“See? And I don’t wanna lose you either. So I feel safe and happy with you! It’s nice to know that you care so much about me.”
Maybe your wording wasn’t the way you wanted it to be, you were honestly still awfully tired, but it seemed to be enough to make Josuke feel a bit better. Hey, did the corners of his mouth just perk up a bit?
“Thanks, [ y | n ]... I’m so glad...”, he sighed and weakly leaned his head against your shoulder. Of course that meant you had to lean yours against him as well. Sometimes it could be really nice to feel each other’s warmth, and just be close.
“Do you wanna cuddle until we fall back asleep?”, you offered, and Josuke quickly placed a kiss on your cheek before he pulled you back down with him.
