i cant watch popular streamers for too long bc i always get this sudden reminder that they get paid more than i ever will for doing what others do for free/pay to do
playing around with my pictures lol
feeling nostalgic for the night moral of the story ft niall horan dropped and delaney and i got cookout at midnight and drove down to the battery w all the windows down blasting in on repeat and also my last night living in charleston where we drove around listening to music for hours until we ended up at sullivan's at 5 am to watch the sunrise one final time and we were listening to golden by harry styles as it came over the horizon and god i miss hanging out with her
That feel when your q spits out a post that is not only worthy of your mutuals main blog, but then a follow up on their personal blog.
okay i had this idea forever ago and i cant remember if it was something i put into tags or made a post or if its just been plaguing my mind BUT here have this
billy, after a terrible accident that he barely survived, moves to a remote island and lives there as the lighthouse keeper
its a small island and the townsfolk, while friendly, dont see much of billy and they make up rumors about the elusive lighthouse keeper
most of them are harmless, like that billys actually a ghost or a vampire so thats why the rare times hes seen are in the middle of the night getting groceries
(actually hed probably need to be manning the light at night so maybe like dawn or dusk, something spooky like that)
(really billy just doesnt like talking to people and avoids the busy hours to get his food)
anyways steve just dropped out of college and in a fit of rebellion steals his dads yacht and just leaves without a plan
steve wrecks the boat into a bunch of rocks near billys lighthouse and billy rescues him
steve begs billy to not call the coast guard or anything he doesnt want his dad finding him and billys got a soft spot for this pretty boy and his daddy issues
steves not in terrible shape, got a concussion, a gash across his forehead, and a handful for nicks and bruises but its bad enough that steve needs care and billy enough first aid
so billy tends to his wounds and lets steve stay until hes healed and can make his way
billy kinda avoids steve at first, not really having sure footing when it comes to new people but steve is just so open and they have surprisingly a lot in common
and its honestly really good for both of them; billys not so alone and someone to watch out for him and steve finds a purpose in helping billy out and has someone who listens to him
its really good
they get more comfortable around each other, find a rhythm they move with around each other, figure out boundaries
its been months at this point, steve still gets dizzy if hes been on his feet for too long
theyre getting into storm season, the kind that sound like theyre going to blow the whole lighthouse down
the first bad storm steve cant sleep, all he can hear is the wind and the rain and the waves so he finds billys room and nervously pushes open the door
brand new territory, sure theyre okay sitting hip to hip on the teeny tiny couch on the main floor but this? steve shaking billy awake and asking if he can sleep here? un fucking charted
billys been running the lighthouse by himself for long enough to wake up to anything that isnt a wave breaking over the rocks below our rain pounding against his window
so he wakes and sees steve just as scared and shaky as the day he found him in his wrecked boat
of course he lets steve under his covers
feels every flinch and tremble steve has in response to the storm
billy holds him and rubs his back, not totally sure what to do
eventually steve fall into a fitfully sleep and billy after him
the next morning steve looks exhausted as billy makes the coffee
sits next to steve and slides him a cup
steve tells billy about the night he wrecked, about the storm and how steve was sure he was going to die
billy listens and lets steve know 'my beds open when you need it' with a furious blush
steve grins into his cup
they share a ved more often than not
but steve gets better and better and while theyve been getting along really well and getting closer, they both are remembering the promises made at the very beginning
that billy would only house steve until he was healed and on his feet and they both agreed to it
steve bites the bullet and tells billy hes going into town tomorrow to ask around for a boat or for work
and billy cant meet his eyes, just stares at the floor, tracing the wood patterns on the table next to him and just
he tells steve he doesnt have to go, billy wont make him, if hes comfortable here he can stay but billy wont make him stay if he doesnt want to
its a long jumble of words that billy blushes at and steve steps into billys space, the space that over the long months steve has grown to know hes allowed into
reaches out and tugs on one of billys curls and smiles softly
'you asking me to stay sailor?'
'youre the fuckin sailor here pretty boy'
'and look where that got me huh?'
billy finally meets steves gaze and leans impossibly closer searching, begging, asking steve to say no, to move if he doesnt want this
tugs on the bottom of steves shirt and he wants to be sure
'im gunna kiss you now'
and its soft and sweet because steves been experimenting with sweet bread recipes and its warm because steve has been wearing billys sweaters and it just feels so right
so maybe steve doesnt go into town to find a boat
maybe he just goes into town to pick up the groceries and laugh when some of the kids ask how the ghost is doing
maybe him and billy eventually get over themselves and get serious about what they are
maybe steve finds a good radio station that plays fun music early in the morning to dance around their tiny kitchen in their wool socks
maybe steve gets great at baking and bakes for the annual festivals
maybe billy goes into town with steve more and more and laughs when people he can call friends still call him a ghost in good spirits
maybe they get a big bumbling dog that knocks down the fence every single time one of them comes back from town no matter how much they try to hold her back or put the fence back together
maybe theyre just happy
we really need to exterminate whoever keeps fucking pushing managers to make professional relationships more personal. like this whole "oh we're a family", "we all do friday drinks and EVERYONE CERTAINLY LIKES IT" shit sucks. Out of my top 10 best coworkers I was only friends with like 1 of them, being a "family" only makes it easier for your manager to ask more from you than they otherwise would have (answer calls outside office hours, work late, come in early).
just noticed that John is barely described as actively smoking from Alex's pov, but he IS from Patty's
it's almost like,,,, he smokes more when he's stressed,,,, and uncomfortable?? 🤔🤔
Dude yo MEMORIES

//OK! Bedtime now! Won’t be around tomorrow because going out of town with my friend again.
every season I think “no THIS is my favorite season!”
summer? yes. fall? yes. winter? yes. spring? yes.
realizing today could have been the easiest time to talk to that guy in my mcb class all i had to do was turn around and ask how he did on the midterm since my prof passed back exams and went over it today

No thoughts no sleep only Goliath warlock, human Druid, pixie rogue, and tiefling monk/bard being holed up in a tiny apartment trying not to destroy each other. Warlock keeps turning creepy bc their patron is the undead, monk/bard would rather play their piccolo and have someone else whack the pests, honestly the Druid is on the verge of going supernova bc they’re circle of stars and haven’t been able to connect to nature at all bc they’re stuck keeping things in this apartment going smoothly, and the rogue? Well they’re bringing home aberrations and fiends that they might have stolen from less than scrupulous people all the time. Somehow they get blessed by a deity to go and save the world from an evil organization that fronts as a silverware store in town.
i have been brewing this idea for a couple hours now and i love it.
