Stealing this of dreamsofspike

I'll describe 10 pairings that I like in one sentence or less, and you try to guess which pairing I'm talking about. Some are canon, but not all are. All pairings are two people, unless marked "OT3". :) At least one pairing is an RPF pairing, but I'm not telling which one(s). ;)

1. Her obsession with him started out of a sense of guilt, it turned into love where he supported her until he found out the truth. Now they've both been violated by the monster that destroyed her.

2. She's a survivor, an abandoned child, who is finally finding what she's meant to be, he was a child soldier forced into a destiny he never asked for. They found companionship in one another. (Finn/Rey, Star Wars)

3. She's the last survivor of a world long gone, he's the best friend of her last remaining relative, they are one another's strenght when they need it most

4. They were childhood friends, brothers in arms, until one of them was taken and turned into a weapon, it was only their love for one another that brought him back. (Bucky/Steve, Captain America, mcu)

5. They are both sons of neglectful fathers, given far more responsibility that any person should have to carry at too young an age, now they find strenght in one another to keep going

6. One is a kid who had to grow up way too fast, take on far too much responsibility and become a leader when no one, himself included thought he was ready for it, the other is a dark broody anti-hero with a tragic past who finds redemption and inspiration in a young hero's desire to be more than a monster.

7. A Broken young man who didn't dare to truly live until after he died, found love with a religious fanatic who finds a new purpose when he denies his cult leader's demands (Kieren/Simon, In the Flesh)

8. One is a leader who's closed herself off from all the pain and suffereing she's been through, he's the saracastic monster who finds himself inspired by her to be a man. (Buffy/Spike, BTVS)

9. One is a dark broody hero, the other is an ancient who manages to see the world into a new light, both find new ways to see the world through one another

10. She is a demon, he's an angel, both are forced to work together towards the same goal for different reasons. (Mazikeen/Amenadiel,Lucifer)

Hoping these are somewhat clear, though not too obvious.

Edited to make the genders on 10 a bit clearer

Author:Hunters Retreat
Artist: liliaeth
Title: Choices
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: NC-17 for violence and overall themes.
Word Count: 25K+
Warning: Slavery, mentions of past rape, past non-con/dub-con, torture,
Summary: Jensen Ackles was a man on the run. Sure, his name was revered by the Sentient Android Rights Movement, but he was just another face in a sea of J-N_S56s. He had won his freedom in a court of law, but his previous Mistress and Master cared little for the law. Jensen had been on the run for almost ten years and he'd stayed free because he was smart and kept to himself.

When Jensen met Jared, he tossed him out the door as soon as he could. Jared wasn't pushed away so easily though. Jared came back but unfortunately, so did Jensen's former mistress. On the run with Jared at his side, Jensen struggles with his emotions, and the fear that his programming might be taking over. Jared is far more tempting than anything Jensen has ever faced. How can he keep them both safe when he's fighting with himself while on the run from the people who want to put him back in a gilded cage?

I've been home for the past month, and my doctor just gave me an additional two weeks that I have to stay at home.

I had a fall with my bike in the beginning of january, and ended up with a crack in my shoulder joint.

Work hasn't been annoying about my sick leave, but my direct boss seemed a bit annoyed that I had to give another extension :-(
I know it's not that she begrudges it, she was just annoyed because there's three of us with sick leave, and she doesn't have enough people to do replacements, so I still feel bad about it. It's just that right now, I can't even fully raise my arm over my head, so there's no way I'm going to be able to start working again, hoping that I'll be back in order once this latest extension is over.

Help wanted, I’m looking for a alpha reader/cheerleader to help me finish my teen wolf big bang. I’m a bit behind, though it should still be doable.

Fic’s main pairing is scisaac, intended main characters will be Scott, Isaac, Derek and Deucalion; Boyd and Erica, Allison and her dad, and of course Melisa will play a large part as well, as does most of the Teen Wolf cast. It’s basically a superhero story.

Any help in talking through the plot and helping to keep me on track would be immensely appreciated. I’ve got about two weeks before I need to get my rough draft sent in. (since I’ve been known to write 10k in less than a week that shouldn’t be a problem, if I can keep focused)

Getting rather desperate for a beta for my destiel fic for the Dean/Cas secret Santa ficathon.

Fic is abo, Dean as Omega, Cas as Alpha, but with no actual sex. (mostly cause I was trying to avoid non-con)

Anyone willing to help?

Just watched the latest ep of Teen Wolf

[Spoiler (click to open)]"You'll heal"
How dare he. How dare the little scumbag.

I disliked him before this, but now... he's sank below Jackson Whitmore levels of being utter and absolute trash.
scott came from what shoudl have been his sickbed, to look after Stiles, Scott was hurt, still bleeding, but despite all he's been through, despite his pain, despite everything, he came to help. And that's how Mayo Stilinski treats him for it?
That's it, I just want Stiles gone. I just want the show to be rid of him, and for Stiles to fuck off. Or at least for someone to acknowledge that the way Stiles is treating Scott (and Malia for that matter) is wrong, utterly wrong and for someone anyone to call him out on it.

Stiles is definitely going to be the villain of my Teen Wolf big bang, pairing will be Scott/Isaac.

I just (barely) managed to beat my deadline for the 2015 Dean/Cas Secret Santa Exchange. Reveals aren't until the 11th, so I still have about a week to find a beta.

Anyone willing to volunteer?

Man that's like four fics written in little over two weeks.

Now all I have to do is get started on my Teen Wolf big bang. Still hesitating beween Sciles, Scerek, and Scisaac.

If I said superhero au where Scott is a hero, and the other char is a supervillain, which char do you think I should pair him with?

Just thought I'd mention it. But the spnkink_meme is doing a 'original prompts only' month. Meaning no reprompts, no reposts, no repeats of previous months... Might be the perfect opportunity to go look for some original prompts for a change, instead of all the bottomJared prompts that have been posted over and over for the past few years.

And who knows, if we work at it, we might finally get some more focus on Dean again. :-)

One of the things I love so much about the new Star Wars movie, is that there are no assholes amongst the heroes.

I mean, Han is snarky, and defensive, but he’s never an asshole about it.

And all three of the new heroic characters are hopeful, kind and gentle at heart. None of them see the need to put others down to drag themselves up.

And that matters.

In fact the only assholes in the movie are the bad guys.

Kylo Ren, who’s self absorbed and thinks that he’s making himself stronger by embracing his inner assholeness. And all it does is make it so that even the evil people don’t really want to hang out with him, because well, why would you? It’s something that makes him a bit pathetic, rather than admirable.

Or that merchant guy who tries to steal BB8 from Rey and is an asshole about the parts he buys, because he knows he's the only one the scavengers can go to with what they manage to find.

Even Hux and Captain Phasma, who are evil, aren’t really assholes about it, just evil.

Hell, one of the reasons Finn is called a traitor, is because from their twisted perspective, he’s being an asshole by going against them. (he isn’t of course, because he just doesn’t want to be an asshole to innocent people, but it’s understandable that people conditioned from childhood to obey an ideology might be unable to overlook that)

If one thing gets pulled out of this movie, it should be that being an asshole isn’t cool, it isn’t funny and it

definitely doesn’t make characters more interesting.

And after years and years of the media telling us that assholes are somehow cool and to be admired, I really love how Star Wars: the Force Awakens, gives us, gives the children of this generation, the exact opposite message
