20. Damen x Laurent. With a Nikandros or Charls cameo?

Dear Anon, why not both?

(I’ll just assume that you’ve requested the one I’ve rebloged most recently yup. That would be the four word prompts)

20. “Alright, I love you.”

~Don’t Threaten Me With A Good Time~

The moment Makedon said he wanted to celebrate Laurent’s ascension Damen knew it wouldn’t end well.

The celebration was rather private, on Laurent’s demand, though Makedon tried to argue.

And so they found themselves in a fort near what used to be the border.

It was a small gathering which consisted of Laurent, Damen, Makedon, Jord, Nikandros, Lazar, Pallas, a few of Makedon’s men and Charls, the Veretian cloth merchant and a few of his friends. He had found himself there by accident and was joined them on Laurent’s invitation.

Makedon and Charls ended up getting along very well. Surprisingly enough, so did Nikandros and Jord. Damen was glad to see Nikandros relax a little, take a few shots even.

But Damen himself was reluctant to let his guard down. He stuck with Laurent, ready to interfere if needed. Makedon truly was a bad influence, no matter how much respect Damen had for him.

“Look at them,” said Makedon at some point. He motioned to the other side of the room, where Lazar and Pallas sat.

Laurent seemed to observe the situation carefully, seemingly very interested in what was happening.

Pallas had his arms crossed, his head turned away. Lazar was leaning forward and whispering something in his ear. Although Pallas’s cheeks were red, he slapped Lazar’s hand away when he tried to rest it on Pallas’s thigh.

“He’s resisting,” Laurent pointed out.

“Maybe he’s trying to prove something. Maybe he wants to appear strong before Veretian charm,” Makedon speculated.

Despite not knowing the people involved, Charls was very interested in the discussion. “No Akielon is immune to Veretian charm, eh, Lamen?”

Damen smiled. He wouldn’t argue, instead he wrapped his arm around Laurent’s waist and said, “I absolutely agree. Pallas doesn’t stand a chance.”

Laurent leaned against Damen, already struggling to keep himself upright, though he wouldn’t let it show. “He won’t last,” he said, nodding in agreement.

Charls blinked in confusion. “Which one is Pallas?”

“The Akielon,” Makedon answered.

They all shamelessly watched as Lazar’s hand found its way up Pallas’s thigh again.

“Watch - he’s gonna hit him,” Charls said.

When it happened, Charls and Makedon burst out laughing. Laurent was giggling quietly and Damen didn’t know what to think.

“This is getting sad,” said Laurent, “If I took a shot every time Lazar made a desperate attempt to get in Pallas’s pants, I would be…” He couldn’t even finish the sentence. The problem was that Laurent already was drunk.

And, much to Damen’s horror, Makedon raised his cup. “And we shall! That is two shots so far,” he said and held up three fingers.

The three of them started taking shots without hesitation.

Damen took Laurent’s wrist. “Uh, maybe this isn’t such a good idea…”

Laurent gave him a look, his gaze unfocused.”Damen, live a little! Don’t be so…” He started cackling before he even finished the sentence, “Frigid.”

Damen stared at Laurent. Then they both laughed. The irony of the statement was far too hilarious.

And so they drank, all four of them. Each time poor Lazar made a move, Laurent, being the most observant one, slapped Charls’s, Damen’s or Makedon’s arm to get their attention. Then they all took shots. It went for a while. Pallas was holding up well.

Charls was the first one to pass out. He may have had a high tolerance, but he wasn’t used to Akielon liquor. Laurent wasn’t either, but he had made an effort to get used to it. His incredible will power was not to be forgotten either.

Damen stayed to his senses as much as he could. He was the one to break it off.

“I think we should excuse ourselves,” he said to Laurent.

“We are still celebrating!” Said Makedon, almost insulted. “Besides, Lazar hasn’t caught his pray yet!”

“I’m sure you’ll understand,” Damen said, “This one is very fragile.”

Makedon frowned. “You underestimate your lover.”

Laurent hiccupped. He had dropped all his weight on Damen, resting against him helplessly. “I’m afraid he is correct.”

“You cannot leave now…” Makedon complained.

“Let’s have a bet and call it a night?” Laurent suggested.

Makedon was interested and no longer insulted. “Go on…”

“I bet,” said Laurent, leaning forward. It didn’t turn out to be a smart move and he ended up grabbing Damen’s arm for balance. “I bet that Pallas will be caught by sunrise.”

“You don’t know Pallas. He won’t let himself be taken,” Makedon said proudly.

Laurent smirked. “If he doesn’t, I’ll wear a dress for you,” he said, offering his hand.

Makedon took it. “And I will for you, if he does.”

They shook on it.

Laurent wouldn’t have allowed it otherwise, but as he was unable to walk, he made an exception and let Damen pick him up.

Damen felt rather good about it. He carried Laurent to their room, his head rested against Damen’s shoulder the entire time.

Once there, Damen placed the sleepy king on their bed. As well as Laurent, Damen needed sleep. He lay beside him and their eyes met.

“Are you going to resist my advances again?” Laurent questioned. His gaze was still unfocused, but it still left an impression Damen.

“I think I will,” he said, swallowing thickly.

Laurent was wearing the chiton. Lying down, it somehow managed to go up to his waist.

If Laurent had been sober, he definitely would have been aware of it and he would have tried to use it to mess with Damen.

Drunk, it was hard to tell.

Damen realized, much to his delight, that Laurent let himself relax. The last time he had been drunk, he was careful and on edge despite the intoxication.

But this time he was rather relaxed, maybe he even let his guard down a little.

Laurent rolled over, finding his way on top of Damen. “But, this is fun. I promise I won’t kill you tomorrow.”

Damen allowed a brief kiss to happen. “It isn’t a good idea.”

Laurent pouted. That way, he resembled a puppy. “Your self control is astonishing.”

“Not as astonishing as yours.”

Laurent rested his chin on Damen’s chest. Then Laurent got off of him and instead cuddle close to him.

“You’re going to make up for this,” Laurent said, eyes closed.

Alright. I love you,” Damen whispered.

Laurent may have replied, but Damen only heard a sleepy mumble.


Four Word Pompts

You may have noticed that this story has a name, which is unusual for me

Here’s the truth: I’ve been planning to post this separate from this reply, but I decided to do it this way because the four word prompts are pretty vague and I can write pretty much anything as long as it includes the sentence (which it does)

This story will have a second part, only about Lazar and Pallas and what was happening while they were being used as the subject of a drinking game

That is why I must apologize to Anon twice:

1) because this story isn’t exactly Laurent x Damen oriented

2) If you actually requested for something else I’ve rebloged

Sorry Anon

I hope you like my humble offering anyway uwu


@laurent-ofvere because we’ve discussed the Drinking Game AU (or Wingmen! Laurent and Makedon AU)


@i-am-charls because I took your idea about Laurent not wanting to be picked up in public uwu

X-Men The Movie

For the none of you who wanted to see me liveblog another movie, here I am again! This time I’m sitting down and watching the first X-Men movie. I’ve seen the whole movie in bits and pieces before, but never in one sitting, so this should be fun. Plus I actually know about the X-Men comics now, yay!

- Good opening; actually a very well done brief intro to the character of Erik

- Poor Rogue. Her power sucks.

- This movie is better than I remember? They do a great job introducing everything and showing both how mutants and the public feel. Especially considering how early of a superhero movie this is.


- And here comes the beefcake. Young(er) Hugh Jackman, I forgot just how lip-bitingly sexy you were

- I also forgot how stupid that comic book hairstyle looks in real life

- Rogue is surprisingly relatable for an audience surrogate character despite being a bit bland

- As if I ever thought Wolvie was just going to abandon her. He’s got too much of the Gruff Dad Hero genes to ever do such a thing.

- Awwww Rogue and Wolverine are bonding

- Heck yeah, Storm in her natural state: awesomeness. And Scott, your outfit makes you look like a fucking DORK. Which I guess is an appropriate look for you.

- “The fuck are these dumbass dorky suits?” thinks Wolvie. Same, Wolvie. Same.

- Kitty! Jubilee! Pyro! Bobby! All the cameos!

- Charles stop being creepy and invading others’ minds without permission. Oh wait, you can’t. Otherwise you wouldn’t be Professor X.

- “Send Mutants to the moon!” Says a protest sign. “Lol,” says I, knowledgeable of a earlier X-Men plotline where mutants did try to live on moon (or at least a rock in space, idk exactly)

- Damn but that 2000-era Mystique CGI ain’t half bad

- Well then. This is an all around unpleasant situation. Good thing the girl Wolverine stabbed happens to have power sucking powers.

- I love all the beautiful yet unnecessary special effects of Magneto using powers for every single little thing in every scene he inhabits

- Cyclops, I cannot get over how dumb you look, and I love it

- Damn, Rogue. Your powers really suck.

- Scott, I’m sorry, your powers also suck. Ororo, however, your powers are THE BOMB.

- Wolvie, dude, you fucked. Magneto gonna kill your ass.

- Logan’s wearing jeans with a jean jacket, aka a Canadian tuxedo. Truly, he is a paragon of Canadianess.

- Sploosh goes the bigot

- “Yellow spandex” yes please make all the references

- I will never grow weary of Wolverine snark especially when it is in response to Cyclops I don’t care how dumb it is


- …who then had to ruin her own awesome victory with one of the worst lines ever uttered

- “It’s me.” “Prove it.” “You’re a dick.” is probably the best exchange in this entire film

- Wolverine is the bad ass-ist

- Awwww Logan you’re such a softy, offering up your healing power so Rogue can live

- Oh good no one is dead how cliche

So overall I actually thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Whatever anyone may say, it did well considering it was the first modern superhero movie. They managed to cram a lot of movie into a relatively short time. And most of the casting was superb. I can’t think of anything else funny to say, I enjoyed it too much. So I’ll sign off, and see you next time I decide to have a glass of wine while watching a movie.

By now, you’ve probably seen the cast of the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot in 100 different behind-the-scenes images, but what you’re looking at now is the first “official” image of them.

From left to right, meet Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy), Jillian Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon), Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig) and Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones).

The cast also includes Chris Hemsworth, Neil Casey, Andy Garcia, Cecily Strong, Michael K. Williams, Matt Walsh and Charles Dance, plus cameos from original stars Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Annie Potts and Sigourney Weaver.

Directed by Paul Feig (The Heat, Bridesmaids) from a script he co-wrote with Katie Dippold (The Heat, Parks and Recreation), the film is scheduled for release on July 15, 2016 via Columbia Pictures.
