"Kiss Me" Response List:
"Wow, someone's demanding."
"A little commanding, don't you think?"
"What makes you think I want to kiss you?"
"Telling me to kiss you isn't exactly consent-positive."
"Sure!"
"I'd love to!"
"Oh god, the day's finally come!"
"Wait, you want me to kiss you?"
"Since when did you even like me?"
"Kiss you? Where do you want me to kiss you? 😏"
"Ooh! Your command is my wish!" "Wait, what? It's your wish is my command." "Oh, sorry. I was just so excited!"
"Uh, no."
"Eh."
"Maybe another time."
"Don't you see I'm busy trying to fight off the bad guy right now!?"
"Um, maybe after I save your life, y'know? So you don't die while I'm kissing you?"
"How about you help me kill this guy first? Then we can kiss over his corpse."
"Awww, someone's awfully eager, aren't we?"
"Eh, no thanks."
"Never gonna happen."

The Sandman Drabble
(but it's an incorrect quote)
I made some thing I think. I saw the opportunity and took it
(Plus this has been on my mind for a few days)
This is also my first incorrect quote so be nice pls and thank you.
*Morpheus playing with his and Y/N's Kid at the family reunion*
Morpheus: How are you doing, little one?
C/N: Father, say it in your girl voice why do I have to keep asking you-
Morpheus: Look at way-
*Morpheus in his girl voice* How you doin'?
*Desire cracking up while Death and Y/N record everything while trying not to laugh*
Desire: He said- He said how you doin'?
Morpheus: Desire!
*Morpheus gets up to hurt Desire*
Yall know Matthew would be laughing too if he was wasn't banished from annoying Morpheus. And that Lucienne is just happy Morpheus is happy. If Merv/Despair were there they'd definitely be silently judging(cause they knew they get banished too-)

We are our own worst critics. You are doing so much better than you think. Even if what you're writing seems like the worst thing you've ever put down - even if you're not writing anything at all - reality is so much kinder than what's in our heads. Ask a friend, or someone else you trust, and I bet they'll tell you, you're doing fine.
Don't give up!

The edging in the wild flower field just yonder has been crushed. Flora stomped harshly against the earth. Thus begins the tracking of unfamiliar fauna, otherworldly signs from veils too thin to conceal.

[27th September 2022: I've turned off reblogs on this post because it's absolutely overwhelming my notifications on Tumblr. I can easily filter out likes from my notes and I don't mind a few replies, but if I filter out reblogs I miss things pertaining to other posts. I've tried everything to find a way to still allow this post to do the rounds without it making my notifications unmanageable because it's lovely that people are getting something from it and want to share it, but this seems to be the only way other than deleting it or making it private, which I don't want to do]
__________
I'm not sure I can express this sentiment strongly enough, but I'm going to try via the medium of large bolded text.
Write what the fuck you want.
Write what makes you happy. Write what makes your soul sing. Write what fucks you up and makes you cry. Write what comforts you. Write what distracts you. Write what you want to read. Write what you want to watch.
Write what you want to dream about tonight.
Write what you can't get enough of. Write what you're completely obsessed with. Write what wakes you up at 4am and drags you out of bed because you can't stop thinking about what your characters are going to do next.
Write what turns you on, if that's your vibe. Write characters you're in love with and characters who inspire you and characters you want to be friends with and characters you fucking hate but oh my god they're so much fun.
Write about things you would sell your soul to do in real life and things you would never do in real life. Write about things that are happening right now and things that happened a thousand years ago and things that might happen in the future and things you wish could happen.
Write to get a publishing deal or to sell your books yourself or not to sell your books at all. Write for your friends or for strangers or for the people who reblog your posts on Tumblr and send you songs that remind them of your characters.
Write for yourself.
Fuck any system that tells you there's only one right way to create or one valid way to share your writing. Your story, the way you tell it, has so much value. Make people smile or piss people off or do both of those things because art is divisive and fascinating and beautiful.
Start writing. Keep writing. And write what the fuck you want.

Soft touch prompts
Those types of touches that are feather-like and make you feel tingly in a good way. Touches like:
Face
The soft caress of your lips after the very first kiss.
Caress to the cheek after a moment together.
Gentle wipe of your spilled tears after heavy arguments, a simple gesture that shows you how sorry they are for making you shed sad tears instead of happy ones.
Gentle wipe of dirt on your cheek after enjoying your food too much.
Chin lift to make you look directly at their eyes that just make you follow aimlessly and without much force really. (bonus if they kiss afterward)
When they hold your face in their hands and just look into your eyes and just hold the other softly.
When they lightly wipe the blood off your lip from bitting it too often and softly "kiss it better"
Helping you gently put your earring on and tuck a hair behind your ear to inspect how the accessory looks beautiful on you with or without them.
Helping you put your necklace on and sneak a quick kiss on your neck before complimenting you.
Softly pulling your hair back after being food poisoned.
Worriedly inspecting your temperature after noticing your lack of mood and giving you a chaste kiss on the forehead.
Hands/Arms
Soft hand touches with a light comforting squeeze that instantly assures you they're there.
Softly massaging your hands when you ask them politely.
Loosely holding your hand while you watch and walk around on your date.
Cradling your cut finger after an incident with the knife and tending to your wound with a kiss afterward.
Caressing the back of your hand absentmindedly.
Softly toying with your ring and wondering when they'll get to replace it with a wedding ring.
Softly running their hands on your arms and feeling how cold to the touch your skin is before wrapping you in a hug to share their warmth.
Softly pulling your wrist to pull you closer to them.
softly intertwining your fingers together to hold your hand or twirl you in the middle of the night dance session.
Edit: holy heck guys!!! Thank you all so much for the notes and reblogs!!! I didn't expect this to get this much attention!!! Love you guys!!! 🥰🥰🥰
