Have I ever posted of my precious plant babus in my dorm? Succulents are like 110X less available in DC than at home apparently, but I adore the ones I have right now!

The jade plant I got my first weekend here and IT’S DOING SO WELL like you can kinda see the difference between the second and last pictures but the new growth looks great and it looks healthy and happy and ahhhh what a cutie. ;o;

The other pot is more recent- I picked these guys up from the shady looking Ace Hardware in Tenleytown and they were looking pretty scrappy to begin with. The ones in the front are sempervivums obviously, but to be honest I’m not entirely sure what the tall one is- I’ve seen it before but I don’t know its common name. :X Anyway we’ll just have to see how they do. My dream for that pot is to have a small string of pearls that trails over the sides but whether I’ll ever find one out here or not… I’d like to see if I can take the Metro out to somewhere in Maryland or Virginia where they might have a bigger gardening center but I haven’t yet attempted it. ;o;

UK embassy apologises for ‘burning White House’ tweet
The British embassy in Washington has apologised after tweeting a picture of a White House cake surrounded by sparklers, “commemorating” the burning of the building 200 years ago.
The US presidential residence was set on fire by British forces in 1814 during the War of 1812 with the United States.
The embassy later said: “Apologies for earlier Tweet.”
It added: “We meant to mark an event in history & celebrate our strong friendship today.”

ok I’m in love with this artist….because of the style but mostly because of this guy,  which I assume is her(?) original character, and because of the way each picture tells a story….without knowing anything about the character you can imagine his life and personality….I don’t know, I just think it’s great. more art here

APH- Catch Fire With Me [PruAus]

A bit late, but my PruAus Secret Santa fic for smileinthedark, who wanted some angst. Hi again, hope you’re not sick of me yet, hahaha. ;;; Sorry it’s a bit rushed, especially the end ughughugh. I was trying to keep it from getting any longer than it already was and I’m starting college tomorrow. Sorry, roommates. 
Also I realized about 2/3s into writing this that I had interpreted your prompt completely differently than what you had probably intended, but I was too lazy far to change it so I hope this is all right. Happy belated Austria-getting-kicked-out-of-German-affairs day. :X

- - -

It’s sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll. Except, y’know, at a church. And without the drugs. And only a little bit of rock ‘n’ roll.

Sorry, Gilbert is a bit of a douchenozzle in this one. Like seriously kinda icky. Thanks to AWOLNation for the song inspo

Warnings: adultery, unnecessary car sex, angst

Roderich had a gut feeling that Gilbert was an asshole.

Unfortunately for him, that instinct turned out to be mostly true.
