~(Y/N)’s P.O.V.~

A lot of strange things started happening ever since you turned eleven and found out about a magical world that was living parallel to the only world you thought existed; the Muggle world. That is, if you could even call it a world at all, what’s a world without magic? But, if possible, things were getting even weirder now.

You were sitting at a desk in a boring Transfiguration class, fighting hard to keep your eyelids from falling. Professor Dumbledore was happily explaining about some fancy Transfiguration spells, preparing you and all of the other Fifth Years for the upcoming O.W.L.s. Oh, the dreadful O.W.L.s. You shivered at the thought, reminding yourself that you still had a little over a week to prepare.

Still bored, you discreetly glance over at Newt Scamander, who was sitting a few seats away to your left. He looked as enthusiastic about all this as the rest of the class. You watched him scribble down a few notes and admired his neat-messy handwriting from afar before he snaps his head up and his green eyes meet yours. You quickly avert your eyes and pretend that nothing happened.
You and he had a…“strictly platonic”…okay fine, “not even really friends yet” type of relationship. There was no denying you had a massive crush on the freckled Hufflepuff, but you were sure that he didn’t share the same feelings. Ah well, maybe something would happen eventually, but that was currently the last thing you wanted to worry about.

“(Y/N), are you following along? You seem distracted.” Professor Dumbledore says curtly, snapping you out of your thoughts.

You nod your head furiously, hair flying everywhere, desperately hoping you looked alert or better yet; awake. He smiles.

“Well if that’s so, will you please tell the class what I was going to turn this goblet into?” he asks with a sweet smile, his eyes twinkling from behind his glasses.

“Umm, a potato?” you say idiotically, mentally facepalming yourself and giving up on life in general, as the whole class started giggling uncontrollably. Some boys even fell out of their chairs, for dramatic effect of course. You rolled your eyes and giggled too, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em!

You hopefully glanced at Newt and your heart jumped slightly as you saw him chuckling too. Yes, you made him laugh! Well, he was probably laughing at you but you still made him laugh and that was good enough for you.

*****

~Newt’s P.O.V.~

He laughed softly and looked at you through his long lashes. There was no denying it, he had strong feelings for you but he was always too shy to gather the courage to talk to you.
Sighing quietly, he admired your handwriting from his seat, thinking that the tiny letters looked as adorable as you did.

*****

~(Y/N)’s P.O.V.~

“Please pay attention now (Y/N), I want you to do well,” Dumbledore says gently yet firmly and you nod, relieved that you weren’t getting detention.

Minutes passed and the class returned to its boring state. You sighed and picked up your feathered quill and dipped the tip in ink.
You lazily proceeded to draw on the back of your hand, writing random little phrases and words.

*****

~Newt’s P.O.V.~

He jumped slightly in his seat as he felt a tingling sensation tickling the back of his left hand.
He cautiously looked around to make sure no one else saw his little jump and he peered at his hand. The words I’m so bored appeared on his hand in what appeared to be black ink, as if the letters were being written on with an invisible pen in the air.

He blinked a couple times, utterly confused. What was going on? Were these words reflecting his feelings? He definitely felt bored but this hasn’t happened before?…

He felt tingling again and he quickly looked down.

Lalalalalalalalala was scribbled across the palm of his hand now.
Yeah, these definitely weren’t his thoughts and this was all getting more than a little strange.

He picked up his own quill and dipped it in a vial of ink. He was going to try something…
The tip of his quill moved swiftly across the soft flesh of his hand.

*****

~(Y/N)’s P.O.V.~

You yelp as you feel tingling on the back of your hand next to your own little scrawls.
You watch in surprise and wonder as delicate little letters appear, spelling out Hello?

Professor Dumbledore turns to you again after hearing your surprised little sound and quirks up an eyebrow.

“What is it this time (Y/N)? Would you like to share with the class why you felt the need to take such a sharp intake of breath?” he smiles kindly as you shake your head furiously, and he resumes his lesson.

Shaking nervously you grip your quill and write on your hand again. All the ink of your precious conversations, if you even call them conversations, was still etched onto your soft flesh.

Hi. What’s going on and who are you? you write.

The tingling comes back.

Beats me, though I must admit this is rather fascinating. Who are you?

No fair, I asked first.

Well, I asked last.

Okay fine, just tell me this; you aren’t some murderer, right?

Oh no, definitely not. If it makes you fell any better I attend Hogwarts and I’m sitting in a rather boring class right now. This is quite the highlight of my day.

Oh thank goodness, I’m at Hogwarts too! Maybe we could try finding each other?

You were slowly starting to inch your way up your arm for you were running out of room on your hand.

*****

~Newt’s P.O.V.~

Well, this is very interesting, he thought as he dipped his quill in ink again.

Or maybe we should keep this anonymous? That way we could talk without feeling awkward around each other. What do you say?

He waits patiently, drumming his fingers on his desk, eagerly waiting for a reply.

Sure! We could be pen pals! Cheesy, I know but it will definitely keep us entertained during boring classes, like the one I’m in right now.

Pen pals it is! Who’s class are you in right now?

Dumbledore. You?

Same, actually! So we have now established that we are also in the same year, how exciting!

Yay, this will definitely be fun. But do you have any idea why all this is even happening?

No idea. But I’m glad I’ve found a new friend, even if I don’t exactly know who you are. I’m terribly sorry if this is getting weird, but I already like you.

Brilliant, I like you already too! And don’t worry, it will definitely get weirder once you’ve seen my doodles. Now, on to more pressing matters; we seem to have run out of space on our left arms, how do we erase all this?!

*****

~(Y/N)’s P.O.V.~

Turns out that a little bit of soap and water did the trick, no magic was needed. You and your pen pal had become rather close in the next few weeks and you learned that the two of you were of the opposite gender. That made it even more exciting for you in a way.

You always felt like you had a secret, a good secret, making sure to cover up your arms with your robes after a long class.

You were making your way to the nearest washroom to rid your skin of ink when you bumped into Newt on the way.

You blush as you realize who you just crashed into and your hand instinctively pulls down the sleeves of your robes, hiding the smudges of ink and your conversations with your secret friend.

“Ah, sorry about that…” Newt apologizes with a gentle smile.

“It’s fine,” you say quickly and you mentally slap yourself. Great job, the one time you ever talked to your crush and you had to say “I’m fine”? Arg, you always blew it.

Without saying another word, you scurry off to your next class, plop yourself down in your chair and pull out a vial of ink. You try to find a bare spot on your arms and you manage to squeeze in a tiny sentence.

*****

~Newt’s P.O.V.~

He was still blushing after your little encounter and he felt a tingle on his arm as he sat down in the library to study for he was done all his classes for the day.

Hey, we’re like, super tight now right?

He smiles and pulls out his own quill, swiftly replying.

Yeah, I mean, we have been chatting for over a month now. I’d say we’re pretty close and we know quite a bit about each other.

Okay, good because I wanted to ask you for some advice. I have a crush and he’s a dude and since you’re a dude too you know stuff that I don’t, am I right?

Umm, sure? I guess that makes sense.

Well, here I go anyways. So I’ve liked him for quite some time now and I just bumped into him in the hallways but I really couldn’t bring myself to say anything, what should I do?

Blimey, I just met my crush in the hallways a few minutes ago! he wrote, shaking his head in wonder. You two were more alike than he thought.

Ah! Okay, answer my questions later. Tell me all about her!

Well, I’m in the same situation as you. I’ve liked her since I’ve laid eyes on her but I’m too shy to make a move.

I suggest talking to her! How bad can it be? You’ve got to work up some courage and I’m sure you’ll do great! I believe in you!

I could say the same to you! Why don’t we both attempt to talk to our crushes and meet up to see how it went.

Wait, did you just say meet up!?

Yeah, I’d say it’s about time to see each other, wouldn’t you?

Yes!!! I’ve been waiting for this moment! I’m sure you’re lovely!

*****

~(Y/N)’s P.O.V.~

You agreed to meet up with PP (your nickname for your pen pal) by the main entrance. But before that happened, you had to try to work up the guts to talk to Newt. Yeah, that was the tricky part.

He found you before you saw him.

“Umm hi (Y/N),” he said with a shy grin, his beautiful hair falling like a halo on his head. You stood there like an idiot, no words coming out.

Abort mission! Abort mission! you scream in your head.

“I’m sorry Newt, I can’t talk right now. I need to meet someone.” you blurt before rushing off towards the main entrance.

Well, that failed.
You hold back tears as you run.

*****

~Newt’s P.O.V.~

Well, that failed.
He miserably watched you go and felt something odd in his chest. His breathing got heavier. Did you just reject him or were you just really busy? He couldn’t say.

He finally decided that he should probably go meet his pen pal. At least that would cheer him up.

“Oh, Mr. Scamander! Will you help me move these textbooks to another room?” Professor Dumbledore asks Newt, beckoning him over.

Newt opens his mouth to tell him that he was busy but the professor would hear none of it. Newt sighed and made a mental note to apologize to his pen pal later.

*****

~(Y/N)’s P.O.V.~

Hello? you write, standing alone by the entrance, finally beginning to calm down after the very one-sided conversation with Newt. You hadn’t meant to seem rude, you just…panicked.
You’ve been waiting for 20 minutes now and no one showed up.

I’m on my way!

A frantic scribble appears next to your sentence and you huff, slightly annoyed yet still tingling with excitement. Even though you had failed to talk to Newt, you were finally going to meet your new friend!

Soon, you hear footsteps running towards you and you turn, only to see Newt panting a couple feet away from you. What was he doing here?

“Hi, Newt. Umm, what are you doing here?” you ask, your voice coming out as a little squeak as he straightens up.

“Uh, I am here to meet someone.”

Your heart fell as he looked away, clearly avoiding eye contact. When would your pen pal show up?

*****

~Newt’s P.O.V.~

Oh no, why was she here? He was even more nervous now than before!
He hastily looked away before blushing furiously, refusing to face her.

The two of you stood opposite to each other, both leaning against the wall, waiting and not daring to speak to each other for you were both nervously shaking.

******

~(Y/N)’s P.O.V.~

You frantically pull out your quill and shakily start to write.

Where are you?

A tingle.

I’m here waiting for you!

You blink as the writing appears and your breath hitches in the back of your throat. It couldn’t be…

You and Newt both turn and spontaneously walk towards each other.

You shakily lift up your arm and he does too, like a mirror mimicking your precise movements.

Your arms are now side by side and the words you just exchanged were both printed on your forearms.

You tilt your head up just enough to look at him and your eyes brighten with realization.

“It’s you.” you both murmur at the same time.

  • Ren: Well shit.
  • Jaune: What? What happened?
  • Ren: I think I was supposed to be having sex right now.
  • Jaune: How do you THINK you're supposed to be having sex?
  • Ren: Well, I just got an angry text from Nora, and a death threat nude.
  • Jaune: A what?
  • Ren: A death threat nude. It's Nora naked with a very questionable message tacked on at the end.
  • Jaune: That sounds dangerous.
  • Ren: It's more dangerous actually having sex with her.
  • Ruby: LALALALALALALALALA! I'M NOT LISTENING! I'M JUST TRYING TO WRITE A LETTER TO MY AMPUTEE SISTER!

omg…i have no schoolwork to do tonight so i’m just like lalalalalalalalala i have so much time for myself . i think i might make banana bread bc my dad luvs it

Not edited but here’s a first look at Fallout Terra and Hancock. Before anyone is like ‘ooh no he looks nothing like my fave raisin mayor what are you doing?’ He’s based off the Sexy Hancock mod that i’ve been playing with for a while now. I may change my mind and make him into original vanilla Hancock, i dunno yet.
But yeah, the skin is a disaster lol. the hands are very non ghoul looking, lots of work to do but. Yeah. Babes.

Oh also, he is wearing Maxsons jacket because i ripped it from Maxsons cold dead corpse and gave it to him. It looks warm and cozy. Also missing hat because i canf find the one i want. Lalalalalalalalala.

네가 어디에 살건 내가 어디에 살건


[RM]
한참을 달렸네 난 다시 또 한참을 달렸네
I’ll be riding and I’ll be dying in ma city

I don’t know what to say 난 죽어도 말 못해
내게 억만금을 주고 딴 데 살라고 아 no thanks
일산, 내가 죽어도 묻히고 싶은 곳
it’s a city of flower, city of mon
10-대 부터 라페스타 웨스턴 돔
어린 시절 날 키워낸 후곡 학원 촌
세상에서 가장 좋아하는 곳 자연과 도시 빌딩 곳곳
한강보다 호수 공원이 더 좋아 난

작아도 훨씬 포근히 안아준다고
넌 내가 나를 잃는 거 같을 때

그곳에서 빛바랜 오래된 날 찾네
do you remember 너의 냄새 또 everything
You are ma summer autumn winter every spring

내 삶은 뜨겁지 남쪽에 열기 이열치열 법칙 포기란 없지
난 기어 넣고 시동 걸어 미친 듯이 바운스
오직 춤 하나로 가수란 큰 꿈을 키워 이제 현실에서 마음껏 무대 위를 뛰어
잘봤지 열정을 담았지 나 광주 호식이다 전국 팔도를 기어
나 볼라면 시간은 7시 모여 집합 모두 다 눌러 062-518

솔직하게 말해 대구 자랑 할 게 별로 없어
내가 태어난 거 자체가 대구의 자랑

where might you be, where might I be

[RM]

I ran for a long time
and again I ran for a long time
and I’ll be riding and I’ll be dying
in my city

I don’t know what to say
even if I die, I can’t say it
if you gave me a million dollars and told me to live somewhere else, ah no thanks
Ilsan is the place I want to be buried when I die
it’s the city of the flower, city of mon
from my teens, La Festa, Western Dome
the Hugok academy village that raised me in my youth

the place I like the most in the world
nature and city, building places
to me, I like the Lake Park more than the Han river
even if you’re small, you hold me so cozily
when it seems like I’m going to forget myself
in that place, I find the me that has faded
remember your smell and everything
you’re my summer autumn winter every spring


[JM] hey, Busan’s sea,
[V] say la la la la la

[JH]
I’m a South Jeolla Gwangju baby
when my footsteps take me to a mountain it’s to the summit of Mudeungsan, baby
my life is hot, the fever of the south, fight fire with fire, there’s no giving up on the law
I put it in gear and and kick-start, bounce like crazy

with only dance, I had this dream of being a singer
to have that reality and jump onstage
I tried, I was full of passion
I’m Gwangju’s hoshik*, the nation’s eight provinces are overgrown
if you want to see me, meet at 7, muster
everybody press it, 062-518


[JM] hey, Busan’s sea,

okay okay okay
I was born in Daegu, I was raised in Daegu
getting a blood transfusion is hard, my blood runs blue
this dude doesn’t get tired
of talking about Daegu on every album
you could think that but
I’m a D-boy
yeah I’m a D-boy

I’ll say it honestly, there’s really nothing to brag about in Daegu
the fact of my birth is the pride of Daegu ho
right?
yeah, right
even if there’s nothing to brag about, I can’t help but be proud of it, right?
ayo, I’m the most sucessful bastard ever born in Daegu
you’ll hear this kind of thing, now listen well
I’m the pride of Daegu, a new generation, a new wind
Daegu’s past, but also its present and future

Popping the cork

This is my story for @bradburydiary​’s 1000 followers writing challenge. The number I chose landed me on “Big Spender” by Sweet Charity. I let the song inspire me instead of using it directly in the story, and it just sorta took on a life of its own. I hope that’s all right.

(I re-wrote this twice, because I wasn’t too happy with the outcome, but I hope you like this version.)

As always, please let me know what you think. Also, let me know if you want on or off my tag list.

Holding up three fingers, Y/N nodded to the barista and leaned on the counter as he poured our drinks. She didn’t notice the stranger sidling up to her at first, not until his hand landed on her butt, and both Sammy and I were halfway off our seats.

But Y/N can handle herself, and that became evident when she spun around, a fierce look in her eyes – she looked like she was seconds from clocking the creep. Don’t know why she stopped herself. Maybe it was because we’d just gotten there, or maybe she was tired. No matter the cause, she shot him a deathly glare instead, and flicked his hand off her.
