summary : tom reassures you when you get nervous on set
Tumblr media
(how freaking adorable is this ^^)
tom hiddleston x reader
warnings : implied smut, boners/erections?, cursing, pretty fluffy
——————————————————————————
You were on set going through your script while Tom was on camera acting. He kept looking at you instead of looking where he was supposed to be looking. So they asked you to move more where Toms eye sight should be.
“Aw Tom Tom can’t stop looking at his girl how precious,” anthony cooed.” Tom gave a playful glare to Anthony.
After about another hour of Tom shooting they finally ended the scene. Now it was soon to be your turn. Normally your never nervous when acting but these past few days you have not been doing so good on film. You kept getting really nervous and you felt more aware of all the people staring at you when normally you could just block them all out.
You thanked the lord that today you only had to film one short easy scene. You were still very very nervous.
Tom could sense your nervousness and picked you up with ease, sat on the chair you were sitting in and set you on his lap.While rubbing your back he spoke, “my love, you’ve got this. You’ve been acting for ages and there are barley any people here today my darling, you’ve got this, I believe in you my sweet talented beautiful perfect girl.” He kissed you on the cheek between every word.
You have him a sweet gentle kiss on the lips but he pulled you back in kissing you with so much passion you both forget you were in a room with many people. “Hiddleston let the girl breathe,” one of the directors said “never,” he spoke mischievously.
Although with much reluctance you pulled away from him, “Tommy I have to go, thank you for giving me a pep talk, I love you so so so much,” you said giving him a kiss on the forehead.
“I love you more dove, and of course your gonna nail this scene” he said with a goofy grin.
You started to get up but he kept you seated on his lap, “I’ve gotta go my love they’re calling for me,” you said with a sigh.
“Baby when you get up hand me that clip board.” he said with a smirk. “Why?“ you asked
“You don’t feel how hard I am for you?” he whispered in your ear because there were people around who most likely heard him by the way they stopped doing what they were doing then quickly resumed.
You gasped and got up and grabbed the clipboard. You giggled and said an innocent “sorry”.
“It’s okay dove, but i’m gonna fuck you so so good after you nail this scene.”
You blushed and giggled. He kept the clip board to his crotch while the two of you walked over to where your scene was being filmed. You took a deep breath and thought about Toms reassuring words. You got this. You told yourself.
At first you were nervous and Tom could tell so he yelled a loud “cut” and ran up on the set much to the director’s dissatisfaction and gave you a bunch of kisses on your cheek. He then reminded you the faster you get this scene done the sooner he can love that little pussy.
You ended up doing an amazing job and filmed the scene on the very first take.
Tom did indeed fuck you so good you almost passed out. You definitely are not going to be walking anytime soon.

A/N: hello. I'm new to this stuff and english is not my first language so please excuse any mistakes made. This is short but Thank you for giving this a chance :)
Happier
Harry styles x pregnant fem! reader .
Warnings: pure fluff
~
Harry had just come home back from a couple of meetings for his new project "Pleasing". He opened the door , smiling as he smelt the scent of freshly baked cookies.
Coming back home to his wife was always his favourite part of the day. She was carrying their child and she looked beautiful doing it.
He walked into the kitchen finding her putting some cookies into a bowl probably to munch on while watching a movie. She looked gorgeous. Her usual afro pulled into a bun while shes wearing his hoodie and some sweats. He couldn't help but wrap his hands around her waist and kiss her neck.
She jumped a little. "Gosh Harry, you scared the shit out of me." She turned to face him and gave his grinning lips a kiss.
"M' sorry, I j'us missed you that's all." He said while moving his hands to touch her belly. Their baby was growing in there. The thought of them having a little family made him giggly inside.
"How were the meetings?" Y/N asked while rubbing his cheek. He admired how she always urged to find out more of his day and make him feel loved.
"It was good. Talked to the manufacturers today, saw some of the designs and they were indeed pleasing ." He smiled as he grabbed her bowl of cookies and helped her into the livingroom.
" You're so cheesy, Harold." She giggled as she sat on the couch. He frowned at her "Dont call me that, love." He sat down next to her and lifted her hoodie up.
He bent down to kiss the 5 month old bump. He had grown to love the child that was in there before they were even born. He also admired how his wife would carry this around whilst continuing to do most things normally. "I love you." He said to them and smiled as he felt a kick.
He looked up to see his wife munching on a cookie while looking down at him as well. With pure admiration, wondering how she had gotten so lucky to be with someone like him. Lucky he didnt leave her because he wasnt "ready". He stayed and watching him take care of her and the baby like this made her heart skip a beat and fall more in love with him.
He brought his head to the same level as hers and pulled her into a kiss that said all that was needed to be said but at the same time wasn't.
They pulled away looking at each other. "I love you" Y/N said looking at him with a loving smile. "I love you and our little family." He said looking into her eyes and placing his hand on her belly.
They both couldnt be any happier.

This weeks read, “Cultish: The Language of Fanaticism” by Amanda Montell
Review: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This book explores the phenomenon behind cults and their followers. From Scientology to MLMs, Montell explains how individuals may fall victim to their ways of thinking. If you don’t normally read nonfiction but are interested in starting, I think this is a wonderful starter book!

A more in-depth summary of my main WIP
I'm not sure how much of this might change as I write, my style is "plan it out, but don't be afraid to change it up." But I thought I'd share this and make it public, because then I actually might feel pressured to write more regularly, lol.
WDMD:
Esme is on the run with a corpse in the trunk of her car. What better place to rest than in The Hotel Idyll, a derelict luxury mission house in the middle of the California wilderness? But upon waking the next morning, the corpse is discovered not in the trunk of her car, but in Room 13, gruesomely displayed sacrifice-style. Esme knows she didn’t do it. Among the worried guests at Hotel Idyll is Meg McCrane, who introduces herself as a private investigator, and offers to help the rest of the anxious guests, uncover what happened. Meg recruits Esme to help her investigations. Esme is caught between struggling to keep clear of suspicions and trying to figure out what exactly happened. Slowly, she realizes that Meg is not only untrustworthy but more involved than Esme first thought. And she confronts her.
Meanwhile, two actual private investigators, Jack West and Ruby Gilde are following the trail of a notorious scam artist, suspected murderer, and black widow; none other than Meg McCrane. As they trace her steps, starting with the mysterious murder-suicide of a rock band and, most recently, the death of her latest, now late, husband, the trail leads them to the Hotel Idyll, where they find the latest victims of Meg McCrane’s plot…

Contributor Spotlight: Kitsey (Kits)
Now that Issue #1 is live, we at OFIC Mag are excited to shine a light on some of the amazing contributors from our inaugural issue. We hope you all love them as much as we do!
Today’s spotlight is on Kitsey (Kits) | @smallwifery (18+ only), who wrote “to drown me out” for Issue #1.
Tell us a bit about yourself!
I'm a historian, a knitter, and a certified Sad Girl™️; I like Phoebe Bridgers, Taylor Swift, and really big hoop skirts. I'm also a Scorpio, as will become immediately apparent when you read any of my work.
How did you find fandom?
I've always had an obsessive and addictive personality: when I was in elementary school I cycled consistently between Star Wars, Twilight, and that one series of wizard books written by an anonymous author with no public political opinions. I dressed up as Princess Leia on a regular basis and made my best friends run around at recess casting spells with twigs. You know, the usual. But I really discovered fandom, in its online incarnations, with BBC Sherlock in 2012 or so. It's all been downhill (or up?) from there.
What fandom are you in now and what brought you here?
The Terror, AMC's 2018 limited series about the lost Franklin Expedition. I first watched the show in 2019 because it was my partner's current fandom; we rewatched it in the summer of 2021 and I fell completely in love. I'm now more obsessed with it than she is. (Sorry, babe.) I just think that if all those guys are gonna be stuck on boats in the Arctic together, they should at least kiss about it, you know?
What’s your favorite book of all time and what do you love about it?
This is technically cheating, but I do own all three books bound in one copy, so: the Regeneration trilogy by Pat Barker. It's the most incisive, wrenching, and historically accurate account of the First World War I've ever encountered in fiction, and it also happens to be queer. Barker's writing has had a huge impact on my own; I aspire to her ratio of maximal devastation in minimal words.
What projects are you working on right now?
Oh, man. In theory, the proposal for my master's dissertation; in practice, a large and ever-growing number of quick-and-dirty Terror one-shots, with working titles like "jfj loses a bet (erotic)" and "champagne problems redux." I have a couple of longer fics waiting in the wings but they've really not been happening for me lately. I am still trying to convince myself that this is fine.
What are your aspirations as a writer, big picture or small?
I want to write novels. I've dabbled in creative nonfiction and playwriting and I'd be happy to do more of both, but what I want most is to be a novelist. 
If you could give one piece of advice to beginning writers, what would you tell them?
Be kinder to yourself. My biggest problem is "should"-ing the hell out of myself: I should be writing. This should be perfect even though it's a first draft. Try to let go of some of that! Do you need to be writing right now? If no, do you want to be? If the answer to both those questions is no, you may, as I often do, end up paralysed and terrified and overwhelmed with guilt. Needless to say, this is not conducive to writing. Relax. Take your time, and take care of yourself. It'll be there when you're ready.
THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF THE OFIC FAMILY, KITSEY! WE’RE SO THRILLED TO SHARE YOUR WORK WITH THE WORLD.

when you forget you’re writing a romance novel
Now that I’ve got people actually following this blog, I feel as if I should say something about my book and what its actually about.  I have come up with not one but TWO book blurbs for it, so I’ll start with those (keep in mind, yeah, these are melodramatic as heck but the whole point is to both summarize the plot and get the agent/publisher interested in three sentences or less).  The first one is:
Traverse was born on a water planet but her heart has always been set on the stars.  When the opportunity to lead a survey team to a newly discovered planet light years away arises, Traverse leaps at the chance.  Little does she know that what should be a routine mission is soon going to have her embroiled in a deadly game of cat and mouse as someone does their best to see her mission fail and is willing to murder to do so.  Can Traverse find out who the traitor is and save her team as well as finish her mission in time - and will the handsome captain of the ship transporting them there help - or be a devastating distraction?
I was quite pleased with this one when I came up with it and sent it to my sister who has been cheering/goading me along this whole time.  Her response was what her response has basically been each time I hit writer’s block with my story which was (and I’m pretty much quoting here):
“Less talk.  More sex.”
Which has actually been a big help in getting me out of several corners I’d written myself into so I changed my book blurb to be more.... smexy.  The version my sister approved goes like this:
When Traverse took the job to lead a team to survey a distant water planet, she thought that her biggest problem was going to be the devastatingly handsome captain of the starship taking her there.  Little did she realize that soon she’d be embroiled in a deadly game of cat and mouse with someone who was willing to go as far as committing murder to see her mission fail.   Traverse is going to be forced to decide where her priorities to her people lay - and where the priorities of her heart do.

🥚Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher by Bruce Coville
“No question is silly if you really want to know the answer.”
I’ve always meant to read this book, high up on my “dragon literature” list. I finally picked it up when a friend of mine mentioned it to me, so I knew that no was as good a time as any.
And I did not regret it.
The story goes like this. Jeremy Thatcher wanders into a magic shop and ends up with a dragon egg. Once the egg hatches, he finds that taking care of a growing dragon is a bit harder than he thought.
Jeremy Thatcher is one of my new favorite books. Not only is it fantastic and has dragons, but Jeremy learns to take responsibility for his actions, how to harness his emotions, and, eventually, how to let go. I think these are really important things for the audience to know. I wish I had read this book when I was a tween.
I’m happy I read it now!

Writeblr Intro (formal attempt)
Hi! I’m Syrup (pen name), I am a co author of a YA book, called “Cope.” I will be in charge of this and all other social media accounts. Fizz (also pen name) is the other co-author. We are both minors. And we are aspiring to make an impact in the world of mental health with our writing.
Our YA book
Tumblr media
“Cope.”
“Cope.” Is a work in progress, the first draft is still being written and posted.
“Cope.” Is a book set in a Mental Hospital (a behavioral health hospital)
No, we aren’t just writing stereotypes or making things up on the mental hospital part. We have been admitted to a number of them. On both our sides.
“Cope.” Follows a story of two women (both in their early 20s) crossing paths in a hospital, during different, but not so contrasting, situations.
(Blurb)
When 20-year-old Leslie Wright is sent to an institution for substance abuse, her life is turned upside down. She has to learn to not be codependent on substances in order to stay alive. However, coping could be her downfall.
21-year-old Sasha, an MHA and nurse for Weekes Institute for Behavioral Health (WIBH), has a dark secret, which could forfeit her job. Her past is her present, constantly burdening her. But she has to stay hidden to keep her role in society.
When the two cross paths in the hospital, a friendship sparks. But, could it be something more?
Sasha’s past and present could be devastating to both, leaving an impossible situation to deal with.
And what do the therapists say?
Cope.

My book blurb!!
In the nowhere place of Polk county, Texas, Easton comes home from a trip that has secretly left her wounded. She is forced to confide in her closest friend, Thayer, about the extent of her injuries, and he searches high and low for a way to help. But no one has heard of a cure for her strange pain. He fears the worst but she plans to go about life as normal, following through with the job she has been trying to finish for decades. Thayer recruits help from Evan, the only sane—and normal—one in their trio of friends, and smuggles him onto a plane to keep Easton safe while he tries to end things once and for all.
But when the mission goes sideways Easton and Evan are taken by force to an undercover HQ base where all rebels of their kind are corrected. While being held as prisoners they discover the atrocities their leaders are committing in secret and form a rebellion against Jlen Kiana, the head honcho of all things evil. This movement of ex-Accomplishers sets in motion a chain of events that no one can stop, and threatens to be the undoing of even the closest of confidants.
Will their friendship be able to hold up under mind-numbing pain and lifelong secrets or will one last mission be the undoing of a connection that has lasted as long as Evan can remember?
But what will happen if he can’t remember? Will he let his friends lead him back to what was once his, or will stronger influences win his trust?

I recently joined Fangirlish as a Books contributor, and my first review is live!
Check out my full review of NEVER BEEN KISSED by Timothy Janovsky (May 3, 2022) at the link in my bio or in the comments.
I’m always on the hunt for a good New Adult novel, and with comparisons to Red, White & Royal Blue and Boyfriend Material, I was eager to dive into Never Been Kissed. Unfortunately, it failed to deliver.
SYNOPSIS
Wren Roland has never been kissed, but he wants that movie-perfect ending more than anything. Feeling nostalgic on the eve of his birthday, he sends emails to all the boys he (ahem) loved before he came out. Morning brings the inevitable Oh God What Did I Do?, but he brushes that panic aside. Why stress about it? None of his could-have-beens are actually going to read the emails, much less respond. Right?
Enter Derick Haverford, Wren’s number 1 pre-coming-out-crush and his drive-in theater’s new social media intern. Everyone claims he’s coasting on cinematic good looks and his father’s connections, but Wren has always known there’s much more to Derick than meets the eye. Too bad he doesn’t feel the same way about the infamous almost-kiss that once rocked Wren’s world.
Whatever. Wren’s no longer a closeted teenager; he can survive this. But as their hazy summer becomes consumed with a special project that may just save the struggling drive-in for good, Wren and Derick are drawn ever-closer…and maybe, finally, Wren’s dream of a perfect-kiss-before-the-credits is within reach.

SHITTING, SCREAMING, CRYING, KICKING LIKE A DONKEY AKSKXJKDJSJSJSJJDSJ-
Tumblr media
Im fucking stoked for this book. As a gay transmasc who absolutely loves the horror genre this book seems like the shit I've been trying to look for. Its about a trans dude named Benji who has to escape the cult that raised him and it's like a apocalyptic body horror that also has mlm romance in it (something else I've been looking for in books) and the love interest is autistic so I have even more rep in my favorite book genre. It comes out June 7th
The author is a neurodivergent gay trans dude this is his Twitter: @AJWhiteAuthor
You should definitely support him
