darriness:

So I wrote four drabbles based on prompts sent from the wonderful Elle. This first one is self explanatory:

Prompt: “Send me a "Cute" and I’ll write a drabble about something one character finds cute about the other”

Cute

Kurt’s lying flat on his belly and he feels like he has no bones. He is the most relaxed he’s been in a while and not even the stresses of work or school are penetrating the happy bubble he finds himself in. It doesn’t hurt that Blaine is lying propped up on his elbow next to Kurt, running his finger tips gently up and down Kurt’s back, leaving little sparks of awareness and pleasure in their wake. It’s not sexual, at least not at the moment. Fifteen minutes ago it had been but now that they are both sated, it’s simply a statement of contentment and love.

They haven’t said anything to each other in that fifteen minutes either. Kurt’s surprised he’s not asleep yet, for all intents and purposes he should be dead to the world but he’s enjoying the floaty feeling between sleep and being fully aware too much to spoil it by unconsciousness.

Blaine’s fingers come to a stop on Kurt’s shoulder blade, changing their trajectory from the steady up and down motion he’s been doing to a side to side motion as he runs them over Kurt’s tattoo. Kurt knows how much Blaine loves his tattoo but not for the reason Kurt originally had hoped.

A Multi-Function Clip That Hides a Toolbox In Your Hair

Um yes!

I still want to bulk buy these and adonize  batch pink.

And it would still get stuck in my hair…

now THIS is what I’m fucking talking about

EDIT: IT FUNCTIONS AS A FUCKING ORANGE PEELER, AND EVEN A LAMP IF YOU HAVE A STRING AND SOME OIL. SERIOUSLY???

JUST IN CASE YOU APPARENTLY NEED AN EMERGENCY ONE FOR RELIGIOUS SERVICES?

How to talk to your daughter about her body, step one: don’t talk to your daughter about her body, except to teach her how it works.

Don’t say anything if she’s lost weight. Don’t say anything if she’s gained weight.

If you think your daughter’s body looks amazing, don’t say that. Here are some things you can say instead:

“You look so healthy!” is a great one.

Or how about, “you’re looking so strong.”

“I can see how happy you are – you’re glowing.”

Better yet, compliment her on something that has nothing to do with her body.

Don’t comment on other women’s bodies either. Nope. Not a single comment, not a nice one or a mean one.

Teach her about kindness towards others, but also kindness towards yourself.

Don’t you dare talk about how much you hate your body in front of your daughter, or talk about your new diet. In fact, don’t go on a diet in front of your daughter. Buy healthy food. Cook healthy meals. But don’t say “I’m not eating carbs right now.” Your daughter should never think that carbs are evil, because shame over what you eat only leads to shame about yourself.

Encourage your daughter to run because it makes her feel less stressed. Encourage your daughter to climb mountains because there is nowhere better to explore your spirituality than the peak of the universe. Encourage your daughter to surf, or rock climb, or mountain bike because it scares her and that’s a good thing sometimes.

Help your daughter love soccer or rowing or hockey because sports make her a better leader and a more confident woman. Explain that no matter how old you get, you’ll never stop needing good teamwork. Never make her play a sport she isn’t absolutely in love with.

Prove to your daughter that women don’t need men to move their furniture.

Teach your daughter how to cook kale.

Teach your daughter how to bake chocolate cake made with six sticks of butter.

Pass on your own mom’s recipe for Christmas morning coffee cake. Pass on your love of being outside.

Maybe you and your daughter both have thick thighs or wide ribcages. It’s easy to hate these non-size zero body parts. Don’t. Tell your daughter that with her legs she can run a marathon if she wants to, and her ribcage is nothing but a carrying case for strong lungs. She can scream and she can sing and she can lift up the world, if she wants.

Remind your daughter that the best thing she can do with her body is to use it to mobilize her beautiful soul.
