a gentlemans way


#cat talking in nothing but water metaphors #wearing all blue #telling kara to dive in #via speech that sounds like a giant ‘embrace your sexuality’ allegory #… #listen i don’t make the rules

*Ayato and Yui skipping stones together at a lake*

Yui: It’s such a beautiful evening.

Ayato: *whispering* Take that, you fucking lake.

Whenever she saw him her eyes; they sparkled like glitters. She was ordinary but with him she was a masterpiece. And that is what love does to you, Love enlightens you, it makes you come alive, more active. Love makes you feel confident about yourself. It makes you love yourself when you hate every single detail of yours. And with her he was becoming a true gentleman. He loved the way she hugged her, he loved when her lips moved to wave out his name.

“If we are to catch the next train, we must tear ourselves away. Captain Hastings is going to treat me to dinner at the most excellent restaurant he has discovered which serves the Indian food. It is to this food that Captain Hastings attributes the improvements of his grey cells.”

  • Hiccup: Besides, Astrid means well.
  • Snotlout: Hiccup, at 2am this morning, I was entertaining a gentleman caller. When she opened the door at the most inopportune time. I could have lost my balance and chipped a tooth.
  • Tuffnut: You think that's annoying? She came into our hut last night when my sister and I were reenacting the gang-plank scene from "Peter Pan."
  • Hiccup: What the hel goes on at night on this outpost?!
EXO Asking Their Girlfriend Out

Xiumin: He’d be suave about the whole ordeal. He’d probably do it somewhere private, at home or in a quiet coffee shop. He’d probably have a rose hidden behind his back and would bow and hand it to you with a cute little smile on his face, asking you out with a seductive, romantic tone in his voice.

Suho: Suho would be a gentleman all the way. He’d probably hold both of your hands in his own, gently kissing your knuckles and asking you out on a date with him. He’d also be the type to bring flowers, probably roses or baby’s breath to symbolize his love for you. He’d also do it in public, so he could show the world that you were now his and that no one else could take you away from him.

Lay: Lay would be really cute when he’d ask out his girlfriend on a date. He would do something really sweet. Literally. He’d probably get cupcakes or cookies or something like that and spell out, ‘Will you go our with me?“ with the sweets. It’s a win-win for everyone, you’d get a date, and dessert! Where’s the downfall?

Baekhyun: Baek would be adorable in asking you out. He’d probably set up something cheesy, like writing a message in the sand at the beach or having rose petals spell it out for you in your backyard. He’d have an adorable smile on his face and he’d be giving so much aegyo to try and convince you to say yes. And who would say no to that face? C'mon.

Chen: This goofball would want to ask you out in the most embarrassingly sweet way he could think of. He’d probably take you out somewhere private, like a secluded field or the edge of a lake, and would just star gaze with you for a while. Then, fireworks would go off, spelling it out for you in the night sky. Chen would hug you from behind and whisper the question into your ear, playfully biting your neck as he waited for your answer.

Chanyeol: Chanyeol is such a big sweetheart and his confession would be just as dorky and cute as he is. Chanyeol would reenact the confession from "10 Things I Hate About You.”, singing the Frankie Valli song when you came home from a long day at work. He’d jump and slide along the couch like Heath Ledger did in the stadium, and when he was done singing his heart away, he’d get on one knee and offer his hand to you with a big smile on his face.

D.O: D.O wouldn’t want to make a big deal out of the whole ordeal, but he’d want to make it special. He’d most likely make you two a meal, eating it together in a romantic setting with candles and soft music. He’d take your hand and ask you to be his, a small blush and smile adorning his cheeks as he waited for your answer.

Kai: Kai would express his attracting for you in the best way he knew how. Through dance. He’d compose a routine for you and perform it, the lyrics in the music and his body perfectly conveying his true feelings to you. When he was finished he would approach you, wrapping his arms around your waist as he asked you to be his, a small smirk etched on the corners of his lips.

Sehun: I think Sehun would be very cocky about the whole confession thing, except deep down he would be so soft and sweet about it. He would probably take you out walking along the beach, your hands intertwined and swinging back and forth when he spotted a message in a bottle. He’d ask you to open it and inside would be his confession. He’d smirk as he watched you read it and when you looked up at him, he’d ask you himself, casually. And if you said yes, then he’d go all soft, kissing your cheeks and smiling like the dork he is.
