If we are not allowed to deal with small problems, we will be destroyed by slightly larger ones. When we come to understand this, we live our lives not avoiding problems, but welcoming them them as challenges that will strengthen us so that we can be victorious in the future.

You can teach someone what character is. You can tell them “do this! Do that” but at some point, the gifts need input, intuition, dreams. One needs to be the freedom to dream, then act on it.
Even if you don’t have a dream of your own, you can give dreams to others-help them to fulfill their dreams!

Any process you are going through will get tougher before it gets easier. That’s what make learning a gift. Even though pain is your teacher.

iwasthecrimsondynamo: Pro: sex is always a pro. Con: ... this family is fucked up enough as matters stand.

rozhdestvo:

Send me one pro and one con you could see with having sex with my character.

( she swallows the coffee without regard to its heat,
  letting it sear her tongue and settle hot in her belly.
  they share no blood, but she is ivan’s daughter in
  all the ways that matter, and he is ivan’s son. )

     Marrying Jaime didn’t make this weird enough 
         for you already, Yuri?

( He dragged out the chair opposite her, helping himself to the seat. perhaps he’d tossed a joke too far, but what was there to be gained through sidestepping things?

Yuri reached over, plucking one of the sugar sachets from the holder in the middle of the table, flicking it between his fingers. )

I didn’t marry her yet. We’re engaged - if it’s weird, then fine. But no - marrying her didn’t make this weird enough for me, the fact that her and Alexei are besties these days kinda did it though.

"Carol Danvers."

"… that would make you Andrei? Unless there’s another one I don’t know about?"

"He does." Yuri dipped his head in a nod, reaching forward to fix Mikhail’s blanket - his мама’s eyes and his мама’s resolve. "Thanks." He forced a small smile, gaze dropping to her bump for a moment, "And you - I mean, congratulations too. I’m sure you’ll make a great mother, Laynia."

image

"It’s weird - right?" Laynia arched a brow, falling into step alongside Yuri, "This … all the plans we made when we were younger, and look how things have turned out? You’re in a relationship with Jamie, two kids and I’m two months away from having my own child … just - it’s weird."

"Your words, not mine." He arched a brow, a little relieved that she had addressed the metaphorical elephant in the room - port of him still blamed her for what had happened to Jamie and Mikhail … it wan’t her fault, he knew that, but still - he should have been at home when they took her, not speaking to his ex.

Yuri stifled a sigh, ”But yeah … I won’t deny it. Things have definitely turned out differently.”

"About seven months ago … is that Mikhail?" She peered into the stroller, fingers folding down the edge of the baby’s blanket, "He looks like you, Yuri."

image

"I didn’t realise you were in a relationship with anyone." He pursed his lips, hands tightening on the padded hand-bar of the stroller, "You’re not the first to say that."

image

"I’m not." She dragged her gaze back up from the sleeping baby, her lips pressed together in a tight smile, shoulders lifting a little as she sunk her hands deeper into her pockets, "He’s got his Mama’s eyes though - congratulations."

"He does." Yuri dipped his head in a nod, reaching forward to fix Mikhail’s blanket - his мама’s eyes and his мама’s resolve. "Thanks." He forced a small smile, gaze dropping to her bump for a moment, "And you - I mean, congratulations too. I’m sure you’ll make a great mother, Laynia."

"Who’s asking?"

"Uh - Stevie. Danvers, I mean. I’m the latest back to the future case - you’ve met Charlee and Andrei, right?"

Danvers … Carol’s - Carol and Coulson’s?”
