You’re Not Paying Attention, but You Really Should Be
July 14, 2019 | The New York Times | By Tim Herrera.

I called up Rob Walker, author of “The Art of Noticing.” In his book, Mr. Walker writes: “To stay eager, to connect, to find interest in the everyday, to notice what everybody else overlooks — these are vital skills and noble goals. They speak between looking and seeing, between hearing and listening, between accepting what the world presents and noticing what matters to you.”.... it’s just about trying to carve out and give yourself permission to have this time where you’re tuning into things, listening to your own curiosity and seeing where that leads you,”......Record 10 metaphor-free observations about the world this week. This is deceptively simplistic: Who couldn’t look at 10 things this week and write them down? The trick is the no metaphors hook. You’re just noticing, not comparing, analyzing or referencing. You’re forced to slow down and truly contemplate the world around you, rather than passively breezing through it.

Remember: It’s looking vs. seeing. Hearing vs. listening. Accepting what the world presents vs. noticing what matters to you.

“There’s nothing more important than the stuff you notice that no one else does,” Mr. Walker said. “That’s where every single innovation begins; that’s where all creativity begins. It’s honoring what you notice, what you tune into and what you care about.”

Eliot's been hit by an over-sensitivity spell by mistake. Q takes advantage.
Eliot’s lips twisted into a grimace. “I’m assuming Margo gave you the run down.”

That was one way to put it. Quentin’s hands fidgeted at his sides as he felt his cheeks go warm. “She actually suggested I… that I, well…”

Eliot snorted before he could figure out a way how to put it. “Ha. Well, it’s a nice thought, thank you Margo. But just the feeling of my clothes has me on edge.” He plucked at his shirt, his jaw clenching in response. “This is a silk shirt, Quentin!”

His obvious distress somehow forced Quentin’s down, and he lifted his hands tentatively. “Maybe focusing on all of it at once is the problem.” God, he was really going to try this. He reached for Eliot’s tie again, touching him as little as possible as he unknotted it and pulled it free. Eliot shivered as it slipped around his neck. “Focus on me.”

Mosaic!years. Quentin's having One of Those Days and Eliot takes matters into his own hands. A hot, different take on their dynamic!
"I didn't do anything," Quentin says petulantly. He still feels a little unbalanced, and it seems easier to be salty than sorry. He doesn’t want to fight anymore, but there’s still some high-strung energy in him, looking for a place to go.

Eliot sighs his sigh that says he is the most long-suffering human that has ever existed on Earth or Fillory and you need know it. Quentin sighs too, but his lacks the weight of Eliot’s. He puts his hand in his pocket, takes it out again.

The door creaks as it closes, clangs as Eliot pulls on it. Eliot’s old shoes are soft on the dirt as he walks. He doesn’t come up beside Quentin. There’s a moment of silence as Eliot considers him. Finally, Eliot makes some decision, taking one more step, reaching out to put his hand on Quentin’s shoulder.

"Is that so?" he asks, his voice silky smooth. His fingers are a light weight on Quentin's shoulder. They're not pressed together but Quentin knows Eliot is standing right behind him, feels his presence like a prickling.

Eliot's hand moves, dragging down Quentin's arm, his thumb skipping over Quentin's shirt. From there it jumps, finding Quentin's waist, taking hold.

Controlled Release - steebadore - Captain America - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
Bucky's just having a little trouble...finishing. Completing the mission. He can squeeze the trigger but he can't make the shot is what he's saying. Which is why he's here, loitering outside a nice brownstone in Park Slope, trying to find the courage to knock on Captain Come Control dot com's door for his three o'clock appointment.You know, just normal Thursday things.

Steve is still laughing when he closes the door after James leaves—because a high five, in the year of our lord two thousand and eighteen. What an idiot. An absolutely adorable idiot, but still. An idiot. And Steve might even still be smiling when he shoves his pants down and grabs his dick, but that quickly dissolves into whatever his face looks like when he goes cross-eyed with relief.

capncapnk - the scientific method
Izuku likes to think that he's perfectly normal, healthy person.

As much as he squirms in discomfort about how brazenly some of the boys talk about sex or porn or any other related topic, he's not exactly innocent in having his own lewd searches that needed a good delete- history scrub from time to time.
But this is...different, he thinks.
What a gross sounding word.
In which Izuku goes on a research quest to nip a weird discovery in the bud.

Uh, the author was not joking about the angst -- that shit burns your eyes.
The payoff is really great, though.

what we do in the dark - gdgdbaby - Hockey RPF [Archive of Our Own]
Two and a half weeks into training camp, after the preseason game against Pittsburgh and a last round of roster cuts, the front office pulls Noah aside following the morning session and tells him in no uncertain terms that they still anticipate losing a lot this season. Noah needs to be prepared. It hadn't occurred to him that he wasn't.

“You ready?” Gabe asks, just to make sure.

“Oh, Jesus.” Tyson rolls his eyes. He shakes his hands a little where they’re tied to the bedposts, and he looks so good. “You’ve asked me, like, four times,” he says. “Just get on with it.”

Once Upon a Time: Taken
Author's Summary: Regina purposefully starts something with Emma knowing they don't have enough time to continue. She then teases the woman through the town council meeting, taking great pleasure in the glares Emma sends her way. All is fun and games until Emma finally gets her alone and fucks her hard against the table- just as she'd been fantasizing about for the last three hours. (WC: 31,691)

REQUEST: Sam/any, overstimulation, nipples especially, rough
So much as I love toppy Sam, I'd love to read him tied to the bed while any works him over big time. All consensual, Sam is well on board for it, but damn Any is merciless, dragging orgasm after orgasm out of Sam and especially focusing on his very sensitive nipples. By the time they're done, Sam is all sore and red but Any makes up for it with the use of ice there and in other places which has Sam writhing and begging for mercy.

Staring in the Age of Distraction: 49 Artists and Designers in L.A.
"Staring in the Age of Distraction (S.A.D.) addresses thematically the acts of viewing and creating artwork within today’s often over-stimulating life of constant noise, fused tastes and aromas beyond recognition, endless visual feeds, and desensitized touch. Naturally, living in an urban environment like Los Angeles demands a great deal from our senses on a daily basis. This demand takes a toll on the minds and bodies of this city’s inhabitants, resulting in a growing popularity of trends like meditation practice and solitary retreats. As a generation of rising artists and designers categorized as Millennials, we find ourselves creating work in a chaotic, digital age while facing both the stigmas and benefits of this demographic cohort. S.A.D. exhibits the culmination of all of these influences through the perspectives of 49 individuals born just after the Internet and have collectively come of age as active consumers of art, design, and technology. This central theme not only applies to the exhibitionists, but crosses over to the viewers as well. S.A.D. questions the role of the viewer within an exhibition space by imposing the same influences of distraction onto the experience of interacting with artwork. The opportunity to exhibit new works in an institution is both a hard-earned privilege and a social responsibility these Millennial artists and designers seek to acknowledge. With change as the only constant in life, we embrace this age of distraction and simply hope to remain in touch.

Special thanks to: Noa Kaplan, Chandler McWilliams, Nova Jiang, and Jonathan Cecil.

Curated by: Ariana Govan, Lauren Nipper, Caroline Park, Elena Cullen, Nicholas Tasato, Christian Gimber, Bijun Liang, Charu Chaudhary, Giancarlos Campos, and Jason Lee"
