I’ve been there before,
Hoping and trying to make things right
But now I don’t know
Honey, these arms that once held you are
Ready to fight

I'm 101% here for taem finding out he needs to dance and being angsty about It but breaking through and becoming his dance machine self, please spam us with thoughts!!!!!!!

Okay u asked for it here u go also I’m on mobile so if spelling shit is wrong pls blame autocorrect lmao also I don’t know a whole lot about the Amish community and their customs so this is based off the minimal screen time I saw of the Amish character in my movie earlier lmao

Just lil Amish baby boy taemin somehow by some miracle finding out about the auditions at SM??

He goes, which is STRONGLY against the wishes of his family, elders, bishop, etc

Literally he almost gets shunned the moment he puts in semi-average clothes and leaves for the city

His mom is crying as he leaves

But also he feels like this is something he’s just meant to do?? The flyer he saw for it was a sign from God!!! How else would he have seen it???

He gets in holy shit he’s so excited he’s almost hyperventilating

He has to get his parents to sign a thing because he’s a minor and he has to translate a lot of it for his parents and they’re SO AGAINST IT and the bishop gets involved and it’s basically just

“Taemin if you go, you will be shunned. There is no turning back.”

Taemin contemplates it for WEEKS before he decided yes this is what he wants he wants this he needs this

He goes and lives with a cousin who left and was also shunned and it’s a difficult transition into public school and city life but he’s actually allowed to be a trainee

And at first a lot of people make fun of his accent and how he’s a little awkward about certain things and how he doesn’t have a phone or an iPod like wow what a loser

He eventually leaves his cousin’s house and lives in the trainee dorms. By this point he’s very used to taking care of himself because his cousin wasn’t so great at being very maternal or anything and so he just looks out for himself. He’s grown accustomed to experimenting with how he can add different things to instant ramen. Honey and milk is his favorite so far. He decidedly leaves out the shrimp flavor packet when he adds things like honey and milk.

When key first meets him, key makes fun of taemins accent. Someone else gives key shit for making fun of a kid with an accent when key himself used to have an accent like a month ago before he got used to talking without it. Key then decides to help taemin speak without an accent. They’ve been very close ever since.

Jinki takes it upon himself to make sure taemin is doing okay when he finds out that taemins family essentially disowned him. Taemin doesn’t notice it until after they debut. He’s very thankful.

A lot of the staff adore taemin because he’s very polite and shy, and also they feel bad for him. Taemin does not appreciate the pity, but he does appreciate the little gifts some of the managers give him. He especially likes the iPod shuffle he’s given once jonghyun shows him how to use t and put music on it.

Taemins also never used a computer. Minho took so long showing him how to use it and also how to play video games. They play a lot of video games together.

The first time they talk about their families after they debut, taemin just stays silent. Jinki notices him get a little teary eyed, though. Jinki hugs him tight and reassures him that all the members love and care for him very much, and they can be his new family if he wants. Jinkis mother also sends taemin little care packages sometimes. Jinki pretends he doesn’t see the way they make taemin get a little misty eyed until he blinks the tears away.

Taemins cousin and her boyfriend came to see taemin on debut day. She said she was going to send pictures of taemins debut to taemins parents and brother. Taemin pretended he didn’t hear and promptly ignored it.

When taemins mother opens the letter and pictures of taemin fall out along with a letter from the cousin about how he’s debuted now and he’s the lead dancer, she cries. She hasn’t seen a recent picture of her son in over three years. The family keeps the pictures in a small drawer in the living room, and they don’t tell anyone that they have them.

Even though he’s been shunned, taemin starts sending letters to his family. They never write back, but they get them. They also keep those letters in the drawer in the living room. Taemin tells them how much he misses them in every letter.

When he’s 17, he stops sending letters for a while. He thinks they don’t care because they never write back. His brother writes him a couple months after the letters stop. Taemin cried for the first time in years.

He sends his old iPod shuffle to them after that, along with headphones and instructions on how to use it.

“You can hear me in it,” he wrote. “Press the ▶️button and make sure you have the headphones plugged in and in your ears. You’ll know when you hear my voice.”

Even though it’s against their rules, they all listen to it. They cherish the few minutes they get to hear taemins voice.

He does not include the song “lucifer.” He’s afraid they would think he was possessed by the devil.

When he gets nervous, his accent peaks through a bit. He always tries to hide it when he realizes people have heard it. He pretends he doesn’t have it.

When he’s 21, ten years after he’s been shunned, he’s being filmed for what he thinks is a variety show. Only, he’s met with his parents and brother when he walks through the doors of a house out in the country. He falls to the floor and almost instantly has tears falling down his face.

His parents switched to a different church within in the Amish community. This church allows for contact with people of different faiths. He’s allowed to talk to them. He’s allowed to see them.

His mom hugs him tightly, helping him stand up and telling him how much she loves him. He holds onto her so tightly, his hands gripping into the back of her clothes. His dad and brother come over as well, petting his hair and hugging him and saying how much they’ve missed him.

It’s a very emotional time for him

I really don’t know what the point of this au is lmao

Today I sat at a desk doing nothing for 5 full minutes and I was just starting to feel guilty about it, but then a nearby fax machine started beeping, and that gave me at least another 3 solid minutes where I could sit there waiting for the machine to finish its business and count it as a semi-productive use of time.

Because while faxing anything in this day and age is definitely NOT an appropriate use of time, waiting to make sure that a confidential faxed document gets handed to the right person IS a decent use of time.

Turned out it was fax machine spam.

Hey remember those prompts I asked for? I’m still working through them, I haven’t forgotten about any of you! :D

I kept getting ahead of myself with this one and I had to keep doubling back to make sure I actually addressed the prompt, haha. But I like how this turned out. Once again, I’m incapable of short fills. Oops. Enjoy!


“Sickbay to Bridge.”

“Go ahead, Bones,” Jim answered promptly, beating Uhura to the punch. He’d been signing reports for three hours straight and he’d almost welcome a full allergy panel of hyposprays to escape from it. Almost.

“Just because you’re bored with your job doesn’t mean you get to mooch off mine,” Uhura jibed good-naturedly.

Jim’s attempt at a retort was cut off by Bones’s reply, “You need to get to Sickbay. Now.”

Bones sounded stern, like Jim had been avoiding his physical for a week (which for once was not an issue, he’d actually showed up for his physical on time last month, thank you very much), but for the life of him Jim couldn’t think of any appointment he may have missed.

“Jim.”

Jim paused at his tone; Bones didn’t sound stern, he realized, he sounded concerned.

From the outside it would be easy enough to dismiss the so called King of Los Santos. Geoff Ramsey might have come from a legendary crew but he’s a long way from The Rooster’s now, and lord knows talents fade fast in this game. There are those who would claim his image was a distraction, the expensive suits, the overly-confident demeanour, the highly skilled crew, all used to hide his weaknesses.

Here’s the thing though. For all they push and mock and act out, every single member of his crew comes when he calls. Every one of them have proven their loyalty time and time again, and there has never been so much as a rumbling about a takeover. And that? Well that should give you pause.

Every member of the Fake AH Crew has a reputation, the kind that’s whispered in dark corners and grows with every telling. The time bombs, the vicious thrill seekers, the boogeymen - the kind of people even fellow criminals know to avoid. Ally or enemy its an undeniable fact that the world will be a safer place when they’re all dead and buried.

So consider, for a moment, what kind of man could lead them. Could not only convince them, notorious lone wolves and trouble makers all, to work together, but also to accept him as their uncontested leader. The kind of man who could look at the country’s most corrupt and depraved city and see a throne.

Its unfortunate, really, that many don’t stop to think until its too late. Can’t shake their swagger and bravado until the curtain falls and reveals not an ageing has-been, not fear or incompetence but cold calculation and a shark-toothed grin.

Thinking is rarely a problem for them after that.
