a helluva lot

I can’t stop thinking about the wisecrack carrie fisher would make about debbie reynolds dying a day after her: the joke about her family, always bringing the drama, the ‘she couldn’t stand to let me have all the attention even when I had just died. I want you all to remember that I did it first.’  

I like to imagine her in the afterlife adding material to her stand up: ‘I’m really disappointed to be here tonight, I was hoping I’d get to haunt george lucas for that metal bikini.’ ‘do you know how long the line for this place is? I flipped off nancy reagan and fidel castro on the way in. ’ ‘when I said dear lord please don’t let me live to see that orange buffoon be president I should have been a helluva lot more specific.’

As much as there’s a large community of people who really want to see Jughead as asexual, and I am a huge proponent for that kind of representation, there’s also quite a large community of avid Archie fans that want Betty and Jughead to be together, too,“ Sprouse said. "I think these are things we need to juggle when considering what Jughead is in Riverdale.

This is a new universe, this is a new take on Jughead, and he is this tortured damaged kid — this Holden Caulfield — who is looking for someone who can relate to him on a personal level and that narrative itself is also beautiful. While I think that [asexual] representation is needed, this Jughead is not that Jughead. This Jughead is not Zdarsky’s Jughead and this Jughead is not the aromantic Jughead.

This Jughead is a person who is looking for a kind of deeper companionship with a person like Betty..and Betty ends up being this super nurturing, caring, catering person that with Jughead’s super screwed-up past they end up diving into each other and it ends up being a beautiful thing. How are people going to respond? Truthfully, they’re probably going to be quite incendiary about it at first. Do I think that’s ill-placed? No. Do I think they should give it a shot? Yeah, I do, because I think that after filming thirteen episodes, it makes sense to me and if it makes sense to me as the person who’s dumping so much time and so much argumentation into trying to represent Jughead correctly, it will make sense to other people as well.

Wanna Be Yours, 4/7 (Olicity, College AU, Explicit)

Summary: College AU. Felicity’s car breaks down in a major rainstorm, sending her walking to the closest house she can find. It just so happens to belong to Oliver Queen, and he’s having a ‘Skivvies Only’ party. (See AO3 for Author’s Notes.) 

My eternal gratitude to my amazing beta Margaret. She’s the best.

Wanna Be Yours, Part 4

A thin slice of consciousness slowly woke her.

The bed was soft where it cradled her, conforming to her every inch. And it was warm, like it was made specifically to retain just the right amount of heat. Felicity hummed under her breath. It was perfect and she didn’t want to move. She shifted her feet, enjoying the soft sheets against her toes, reveling in her bed cocoon. She loved mornings like this, when she didn’t have to get up, when she could stay tucked in for as long as she wanted.

She was vaguely aware that she’d kicked her comforter off at some point, but she wasn’t cold in the least… although she was tangled in something. Her shirt. It was twisted around her in an awkward bunch right under her ribs, making it uncomfortably tight in the shoulders. Usually that bothered her so much she had to sit up and unwind it, but the idea of moving was just unacceptable. She was too lazy to do anything but scoot closer to him.

Him?

A bolt of awareness cut through her chest and with a sharp inhale, Felicity awoke. Her eyes were dry and sticky where her contacts stuck to her lids and she blinked rapidly, waiting for the world to right itself.

When it finally did, she stopped breathing.

She was pressed right up against a bare chest, a very warm, very naked chest. A chest she was currently drooling on.

The reality of where she was hit her and her heart jumped to life.

Oh…” Felicity breathed, a fine tremble lacing her voice, “my god.”

“The fuck are you wearing ?” - Wolverine x Reader

I saw a deleted scene from Reel Steel where Hugh Jackman is shirtless and then puts on a shirt, and besides the fact that he’s incredibly sexy, I couldn’t help but think…”What the fuck is he wearing ?” cause that shirt is…I don’t know I just find it funny. So…Here we go with a short and shitty Wolverine thing, because…Yeah. Boom, here, hope you’ll like it

(My masterlist blog here : https://ella-ravenwood-archives.tumblr.com)

_____________________________________________________________________

It was still rather early in the morning when you felt Logan’s side of the bed shift, and you groan as he slipped the arm that was under your head away, and stood up. You slowly opened one eye. In the light of the rising sun, you could see his naked silhouette gathering some clothes from his wardrobe. Damn he looked good. You wanted him to come back to bed…

-Logan, honey, it’s like - you quickly looked at your alarm clock- 6 am…Oh my god it’s 6 fucking am ! It’s Sunday, and you’re up at 6 am. The Hell is wrong with you ? 

You heard him chuckle as he put on some boxers and pants. You gave him a disappointed pout, because you wanted to check him out some more, and he just smiled at you, giving you one of his sexy wink he reserved for you only.

-I promised Cap’ we’d go on a motorcycle ride today, road trip you know. So we can talk about old times and such. 

You rolled your eyes to the sky, but couldn’t help the smile creeping on your face. To the surprise of many, the Wolverine was actually a great friend. Once you went threw his layers of being a bit rough and broody and a “lone wolf”, he was great to be around. He was always there for his close one, and if someone needed him, wether it was to talk, get drunk, or just hang out…He was up for it. Still, you sometime had trouble sharing.

hey look! another unnecessarily long hc post!! as always blame @manonblaxkbeak but also pray for her i sent her nearly 100 (one. hundred.) messages about this

here we go

Six of Crows Modern/Zombie Apocalypse AU!!! 

The basics: Five homeless kids working B&E jobs for the local gangs in NYC and a rookie cop band together in the aftermath of a bioterror attack on the the major cities of the country. They decide to flee the country to escape the infected areas, but the entire plan goes to shit and they make some new friends and a helluva lot more enemies on the way to finding a cure to the virus and way out of the country.

  • Kaz: a brooklyn boy who showed up seemingly out of nowhere in the world of new york gangs, but quickly makes a name for himself with his ruthless efficiency. Fearless Leader, as always. He is safe cracker and strategist extraordinaire. he organizes hits on supply storage of survivalist camps and uses a bow staff to beat off zombies. he wears a brace on his leg that he fashioned sheaths to for two long ass daggers, also for zombie destroying.
  • Inej: stolen by a human trafficking ring she escaped upon landing in the states and started up with the gangs to make money to get back home. the spy, the scout. she sneaks into camps and finds out what theyre hiding where. she uses two big ass swords and has all the knives. so many knives. she never runs out. she decapitates zombies and intimidates any other survivors by being Very Pointy.
  • Nina: an illegal immigrant from russia who fled after the authorities put out a warrant for her arrest on the grounds of “homosexual acts” (”what the fuck? i’m bi. they could at least get my sexuality right if theyre going to imprison me for it”). she is the face of the operation, she is beautiful and amazing and she knows how to work diplomatically to get what they need through bartering and trade. also i don’t care if its impractical, she uses brass knuckles because theyre badass and fashionable. she also has one of those snap out metal core batons for beating people off and a machete for chopping off zombie heads.
  • Jesper: an accounting major with a gambling problem who took up gang work to pay for school. he has his signature pistols, but i am a strong believer in melee weapons in the event of a zombie apocalypse because ammo runs out, dudes, so my boy has throwing knives and a slingshot (fight me they’re actually really cool). Him and inej bond over their cool knives. He’s got those badass rainbow ceramic ones that he always had on him in case there were ever metal detectors when they were casing a place. 
  • Wylan: he’s still their resident explosives expert, a master of being cute and using household materials to make pipe bombs, fertilizer bombs, molotov cocktails, shrapnel grenades, etc. Wylan got kicked out for similar reasons to canon, his father is a UN rep and working with the CDC (idk man i don’t know how these things work just roll with it) after the outbreak. also he doesnt play the flute he plays the harmonica because i think harmonicas are cool, theyre smaller and less fragile than flutes, and it’d be really funny if he played it if they were ever stuck in holding at a precinct
    • just imagine jesper: “ayye boy what that mouth do ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ”
    • wylan: “play cotton eyed joe” *sick harmonica solo*
  • Kuwei: my brilliant boy is chemistry prodigy who went with his dad to family day at the CDC but then everything went to shit, a bioweapon was released, he missed his tinder date, and now he’s a hostage being used as incentive for his father to further develop this bioweapon released to create more zombies and spread to other countries. He super didn’t ask for any of this, especially when his dad got sick himself and died and he had to take over making increasingly aggressive strands. Pretty please message me if you are interested in my theories on the creation of zombies. I have ideas. 
  • Matthias: a rookie cop back from one tour with the special forces after some disciplinary issues regarding protecting refugees and going AWOL. He’s put on a task forced focused on gang activity and he’s been chasing this group of kids his damn age for over a year now and how the hell are they so good at what they do??? He’s chasing them when the outbreak happens and in order to escape a zombie horde ends up running off with them to find shelter. he’s an excellent shot and strategist, also known for physically tossing zombies like a fucking amateur mma fighter this boy is jacked ok he fills out that uniform like a stripper cop and Nina is most definitely Here For It

Miscellaneous plot ideas!

  • Pekka is a sleazy businessman who had jordie killed in front of kaz by some dirty cops while he was getting carted off to juvie for some work they were doing (he never made it to processing). 
  • They hole up in a hospital and find patient records - this is how they start to figure out the outbreak’s origin.
  •  The kids have are trying to leave the country through the CDC base since thats the only place with functioning travel. 
  • Kuwei is saved once they find out who he is while theyre sneaking around the base, Inej is taken in the process trying to protect him. 
  • The Dime Lions are basically the national guard.
  •  Matthias and Nina met when he helped her when she arrived in America, he knew she wasn’t here legally and barely spoke english but after a few weeks she picked it up fast, and disappeared with a bunch of his cash.

More spoilers of the novelization alíen covenant??. Pleaseeeee

HOHOHOHOHO

(Spoilers, obviously)

Oh well, what more can I say? I think I’ve spoiled all the good bits already. Let’s see.

-Walters tends a garden while the colonists sleep, and he whistles to the plants while he gardens. Apparently he whistles *badly* because Mother teases him about it.

-Everyone knows that Walter grows pot and gives some to Daniels, but in the book she also is officially ordered to take two or three days off “to go cry” -literally what Captain Dumbshit told her- so Walter convinces her to sneak out with him and go check on the terraforming equipment against the captains orders.

-When the crew give their goodbyes to captain Branson, at first it’s just Walter and Daniels, and apparently Daniels asked him to be with her. She tells him it’s because he knows what it’s like to be alone, and this explanation seems to make him a bit awkward: he is happy when other crew members interrupt to show up for the memorial, but it’s TOTES JUST CAUSE HE’S HAPPY THERE’S MORE PEOPLE SO DANIELS ISN’T ALONE, GUYS.

-in fact the entire book he is having odd reactions regarding Daniels and coming up with unsatisfactory explanations for it.

-Walter and Daniels are often mentioned to be walking together. In one instance the book thinks it’s important to specifically mention that Daniels gets up to go check something and Walter goes off with her without being asked or ordered.

-I mentioned that at one point Daniels touches Walter’s face, and he recognizes that she means it in an affectionate way (which makes him embarrassed). Right before she touches his face though, he tells her that it was his duty to save her life, and she jokes that she’s heard worse pickup lines.

-David is even more hilarious and salty in the book. He also talks a helluva lot more, but I think that’s just the style of this writer: I’ve noticed he makes everyone more wordy in all of his movie novelizations.

-Daniels tells Walter (well it’s David but she thinks it’s Walter) that she wouldn’t mind coexisting with a society made of synthetics, and before she goes into hypersleep she tells him she’ll make sure he has a future on the new colony, no matter what regulations say (and I think this seems to suggest that Walter is supposed to be decommissioned with the rest of the spaceship once the colony lands, which I find very sad)

-David (pretending to be Walter) is obviously impressed with her views on synthetics, and gives the odd comment that it’s a shame she couldn’t have spent more time with David, because she might have changed him.

I dunno. I think that’s all I got. I think the rest of the book has been thoroughly spoiled.

Disclaimer: I know jack-all about firearms. I know they go kablam. But I also know the way it would feel natural to hold one, and I know how to look at pictures of people holding them.

Long story short: I think I may have found a way to narrow down the identity of the mystery person approaching Cas in the Two in One promo… but it’s the kind of narrowing down that’s probably just gonna drive me bonkers. 

Naturally, that means I’m going to share it with you guys so you all can go bonkers with me.

They’re left handed. 

That might not tell us who it is, but might it tell us who is isn’t?

Thought I’d share my different concept sketches that were considered for the @notwithoutyoufanbook cover art! The process reminded me of my art school assignments… providing “discussion roughs” for critique… but this was a helluva lot more fun, lol, and @starandshield was great to get feedback from! :) We ended up choosing the top concept to go forward with and I’m pretty proud of the final design (x). It was a lot of work, but I would’ve absolutely regretted passing up such a commission!

jumin

-you two were supposed to meet at this very fancy resturant, and even tho jumin had tried persuading you to let him send his limo, you had refused. it was just around the cornor after all

-you agreed to be there 18:30/ 6:30

-you leave in very good time, half an hour before. when it really only a five minute walk

-so 10 mintues passes and you figure you’re just walking really slow

-but then 20 minutes passes, and you’re pretty sure you’ve passed that sign before

-ain’t no problem you think. still have plenty of time.

-jumin calls you at 19:00/ 07:00 bc where tf are you? are you okay? did you forget?

-so now you have to tell him how you somehow got lost and have no idea where tf you are.

-you read the street sign aloud for him…and it’s literally only 1 block away from the resturant

-after that, jumin never lets you walk anywhere alone again


zen

-“babe, i forgot the lunch you made me, do you mind bringing it with you?”

-zen had to meet early that day, while your work hours were still the same (being his manager and all)

-it should be an easy walk, you had walked it countless times with zen. everyday for about 8 months now. you’ve never walked it alone tho

-you were definetly going the right way, there was the cute little vintage shop! and the florist!

-you didn’t remeber it being so long tho, guess time passed quick when you were with zen!

-your phone rings in your pocket, and you’re met with a very worried zen

-“babe where are you? are you okay? you left an hour ago, right? it’s only a 20 minute walk?

-“im on my way?? i think?? its only 20 minutes? uuuh”

-zen just snorts at that and asks you to send him your cordinates via google maps.

-comes pick you up on his bike and is bewildered about how tf you managed to go in the opposite direction???


yoosung

-is suprisingly good at finding his way, and is often the one leading the way whenever y'all get together and has to find some specific cafe

-(probs a fucking cat cafe, by jumins and sevens request. when zen sees he just turns on his heel and is gone withing 0.02 secs)

-ok but you are at disneyworld together and you two got seperated in the crowd

-and so you decide to meet by cinderellas castle

-except yoosung has been waiting for an hour now

-you call him and admit you have no idea where tf you are

-he’s asking what you see around you, and so you describe it to him and he just about dies of laughter

-you’ve somehow managed to walk around the castle, different route each time, about 20 times.

-it honestly makes him a bit happy that he’s the one to lead you around.


jaehee

-same

-imagine her getting lost in the c&r building, so that jumin has to send bodyguards with her to prevent it lmfao

-you two NEVER get anywhere on time because of that

-it has been numorous times that you two have had a cinema date or dinner plans and you had cancel

-tho jaehee will never admit when you two are lost, and you’re the one who has to put your pride aside and get either seven or jumin’s peeps to come get you

-jaehee gets kinda grumpy everytime, but it’s nothing kisses and tickling can’t solve and her trying not to smile or laugh is the most adorable thing ever

-watching zens musicals at home and cuddling isn’t half bad either

-everytime you have to go to rfa meetings, seven or jumin (s drivers) will come pick you both up.


707

-soo you two are out stargazing on some hill, and you thought you’d get more blankets from the car

-after 10 minutes seven was like?? the car is just behind that tree

-you’re not by the car? so maybe you went to do ya thing

-he waits by the car but after 5 minutes his phone lights up with the name “bae♡♡♡”

-“seven? where are you??? i think im lost??”

-he checks your phones location trough screams of hysterical laughter
-it doesen’t help that you’re close to tears when he finds you.

- he’s trying his very best at comforting you, but everytime he thinks about how you got lost it send him into another fit

-you have to drive home because it would be very unsafe to let seven drive at his hysterical state

-he builds a gps in your robot cat and have you take it everywhere with you

-“seven! care to explain why the fuck the cat splurted water in a guys face when he asked for my number???”


saeran

-your proud expression when you find it makes it worth it tho

-insists on going everywhere with you after that.

When Arashi spins laughter... and actual spins (Arashi ni Shiyagare 04.03.2017)

└ The guests are ice-skaters and have Arashi take on the challenge of giving a ‘winning’ ending pose after taking spins in a chair.

First up…

Exuding stoicness as expected of our youngest.

And he pulls off a cool pose… albeit a little totteringly.

You didn’t only make US see stars then Jun-kun. (^_^)

Our next contestant tries to build up his inner reserves…

And his expression just speaks a thousand million words… (^_^)

Before he absolutely kills me with his ending pose!

And shipper in me tried to be more focused on Sho-kun… I tried really.

And although Masaki’s a literal blur, his hairstyle makes him look so kakkoi~~

And that ending Chinese gongfu-like pose! (^_^)

Then comes our cheater Neener.

… who while looking “nervous”, attempts to bribe / bully / kick the staff into spinning him at less than half the speed of the others. (HAHAHAHAHA~)

Though it hardly yields the desired outcome.

… as he totally feels the dizziness and nausea.

Last but DEFINITELY not the least… our sassy Riida with a helluva lot of SASS with a capital ‘S’!

You just KNOW he’s got something up his sleeve with THAT smirk on his lips…

Sasuga Onee Ohno-san~~

Did you ever really doubt the outcome?

And just a final shot of them all in their spin outfits.

anonymous asked:

do u think that alex and lena would bond over never feeling like enough while they were growing up? like they both felt that their mother didn't care a lot about them and they both had a sibling who they were constantly being measured up to?

Dear god yes.

They first time they start getting close, it’ll be because both of their women are late from the job, and they’re both at Kara’s apartment already, waiting. Alex arches her eyebrow when she sees that Lena has a key, and Lena makes a quiet comment about how it seems appropriate, because Kara’s apartment is the only thing that’s ever felt like home, and Alex smiles, because she knows the feeling.

And Lena will notice when Alex’s shoulders tense when Eliza calls, knows the feeling of being happy to hear from her mother – wanting to be happy to hear from her mother, always hoping, always wishing, always thinking it can change – and she watches the smile fade from her eyes as she explains that no, Kara’s decisions are her own and no, she’s not neglecting her sister because she’s pursuing her own happiness with Maggie, and don’t you want me to be happy, Mom.

Lena talks her way into the DEO the next day and brings Alex lunch, and she doesn’t have to explain, because as hard as Eliza is on Alex, Alex knows she has nothing on Lilian Luthor, so she recognizes the ghosts of inadequacy haunting Lena’s eyes.

It unnerves Maggie and Kara, how well Lena and Alex start getting along.

Especially when they start swapping embarrassing stories about their women, especially when they start giggling together when Maggie and Kara walk into the room.

It unnerves Maggie and Kara to no end, but it also makes them so, so, so happy, because damn, they thought they’d hate each other and this makes game night a helluva lot easier.

16 ZACH DEMPSEY FLUFF!

from this prompt post

Originally posted by 13reasons-13truths

“Jesus Christ, you look like shit.” Jess walked in my room, pulling the curtain open for the first time in a couple of days. I blinked and curled into my blankets, unearthing a few empty cartons of Ben and Jerry’s from the end of my bed as I narrowed my eyes at her through the small opening in my comforter.

“Get up.” Jess wrinkled her nose at the trash thrown everywhere, and reached over my bed to rip the covers off of me. I groaned loudly, my high pitched noise frightening Rufus, who jumped up from the end of my bed and began to growl, his ears up and alert as he mustered all the ferocity an obese corgi can. I shoved my head into my pillow, mumbling something incoherent as Jess began to tug at my legs. “I don’t know what you just said. Get-the-fuck-up-, Y/N.” She accentuated each word with a pull on my legs. “Jesus, you haven’t shaved in a while.”

“Ha ha.” I mumbled, face still buried in the pillow. “Suck for you.” 

I could practically feel Jess roll her eyes as she sat down on my bed, placing a reassuring hand on my back. “Look. I know the breakup was hard on you. I know Zach fucked up, and we both know that the reason he gave was bullshit. Focusing more on school? Sure, Zach. But that’s the past. You can either sit here, mope, get greasy and smelly as you focus on something that happened and can’t be changed, orrrrr you could get up, throw on a super cute outfit and go hella slutty tonight at Bryce’s party. C’mon, this’ll be your chance to make Zach jealous! It’ll so be worth it.”

I felt my heart sink at the mention of his name, but the opportunity to make Zach wish he could have something he let go was too tantalizing for me to pass up.

“Fine.” 

With Jess there, I was ready in less than half an hour. She’d poked and prodded with makeup brushes and lipsticks, and yanked and tore my hair after I had showered, and pulled out the shortest dress I owned with the highest pair of heels I owned.

“Holy SHIT! Your ass looks amazing in that!” My eyebrows shot up as I turned quickly to look at my butt in the mirror. 

“Huh. Wouldja look at that. You’re a miracle worker, Jess.”

“Look, Y/N. When your mom calls me, worried out of her mind because you haven’t left your room in three days, I start to get worried and of course I have to come and help. What are best friends for? Now c’mon, let’s go fuck up Zach Dempsey.”

She hugged me quickly and led me out to her car. She chattered on endlessly about cheerleading and tests and Justin as we drove, with me responding with the occasional word of encouragement and interest. I mostly watched the trees passing by, blurring into one another as day turned into night. We had just pulled up into Bryce’s driveway when Jess turned to me.

 “Now, I don’t want you to worry about anything. I’ll be DD’ing, so you just go and have fun.”

I smiled for the first time in a while. “Thanks, Jess. I don’t know what I’d do without you. Love ya.” With the confidence of a newly single girl ready to take on the world, I stepped out of her car and strutted to the front door, smiling at every person I passed and making a beeline for the kitchen, where the drinks were. Before I could set foot onto the tiled floor, Bryce slid in front of me, wrapping an arm around my shoulder. “Hey, Y/N! Good to see you out and about!”

“Hi Bryce.” I muttered, pulling away. He always gave me the creeps. He was a total player, like most of his friends.

“C’mon, Y/N! Let me get you something to drink.” He smiled, that charming, irresistible to many smirk. And then, I decided- fuck it.

“Sure, Bryce.” I smiled, curling into his arm as he led me out back to a keg. 

“I’ll be back in a sec.” He winked, then reappeared a second later, handing me a full Solo cup of lukewarm beer.

“Thanks.” I took a sip, grimacing slightly, and turned to make my way back into the house, until I heard a low whistle from Bryce.

“Wow, Y/N. I didn’t know you had such a nice body. Damn girl. I know you must be searching for a rebound, so hey. I’m right here.” He had stepped up right behind me, and whispered that softly into my ear, his breath warm on my cheek.

“No thank you, Bryce. I-” I pulled away, but Bryce grabbed my waist and pulled me back towards him, groping my ass as he pulled me closer. “Bryce, get-” 

I was just about to turn and hit him when I heard a deep voice that simultaneously comforted me and sent a chill through me, shattering the semblance of confidence I had before.

“Bryce, I think you heard her say no.” Zach stood there, all 6′3″ of him, looking imposing as he crossed his arms over his chest, making sure his biceps were bulging as he looked down at Bryce. “C’mon, Y/N.” He stretched out his hand to me and I hurried away from Bryce, grabbing on to him and walking further into Bryce’s huge backyard.

He led me to the gazebo that sat under the shade of a huge oak tree, and sat down next to me on one of the benches. I moved away from him, leaving a gap between us as we sat wordlessly. I watched the moonlight dance through the gazebo as the trees shifted in the wind, and I felt myself shudder as that same wind blew harder through the gazebo. Zach shifted slightly, and I felt the heavy and familiar weight of his varsity jacket on my shoulders, covering up the too tight, too slutty dress. 

“Much better.” I heard Zach mutter.

“Excuse me?”

“Nothing.”

“No, I think you said something, Zach. Please, enlighten me.”

“I said, ‘much better.’ I don’t like the way guys were looking at you in that dress.”

I turned to him, anger blazing in my eyes. “You lost the right to be concerned about guys looking at me about three days ago.”

He stiffened, and looked away. “I…”

“No, Dempsey. Sit down and listen. We dated for a month, which really isn’t that long, I get it. But we’d been hooking up and we’d been friends for a helluva lot longer. So I think I deserve more than a fucking text message that I get at eleven at night saying ‘I can’t do us anymore.’ I deserve a lot more. It was hard, it’s been hard, Zach. It’s not fair to me. I deserve an explanation, because you and I both know that the ‘school’ excuse is bullshit. I thought I meant more to you than that, but I guess not.” 

I shrugged the jacket off, letting it crumple in a heap on the ground as I stood up to leave, but Zach caught my wrist as I stood.

“You mean a lot more to me. I never meant to hurt you.” 

I rolled my eyes as I felt them start to tear up. “You did. You really, really did.” I let out a humorless chuckle as the tears started to flow. “I thought I was done crying over you.” I stood for a second, wiping the mascara stains off my face. “I still am waiting for your explanation.”

Zach sighed, looking down at his feet. When he made eye contact with me again, I was surprised to see his eyes glistening as well.

“That’s just it, Y/N. I don’t have an explanation. I…I never meant to break up with you. I just…I fell too fast. And I got scared. But the minute I did it I regretted it. I regretted it when I realized how upset I was. And you bet your ass I regretted it a thousand times more when I heard from Jess how badly you were taking it…the only reason I came here tonight is to apologize. And to tell you that, if you’ll take me back, I won’t fuck up again. And…to say that I love you.”

My head shot up as he said those last three words. Something in my eyes must’ve told him it was right, because he leaned in and gently kissed me, placing his hand on top of mine. It was tender, hesitant, and perfect. I pulled away, wiping his eyes as I shakily smiled. “I accept your apology, I take you back, and…I love you too.” Zach smiled victorious, and pulled me in for a hug, my head fitting perfectly into the crook of his neck.

“Seriously, though, as much as I love that dress because damn it makes your ass look beautiful, please put my jacket back on because I cannot deal with the way the other guys look at you.” I rolled my eyes and smiled as Zach leaned down to place the jacket on my shoulders and pull me in close, kissing me on the forehead.

“It feels so nice to be able to say that I love you to your face, Y/N.”

“You’re a dork. But ditto.”

Levels of kpop fans I’ve encountered

Level One: The super casual fans. Knows nothing about kpop besides it standing for korean pop. Will most likely say at some point while watching an MV, “Wow there’s so many of them (members).” Doesn’t bother remembering specific groups or names and is literally just there for the music.

Level Two: These fans are a step above casual. Is knowledgeable on basic kpop terminology such as idol, bias and comeback. Owns an album or two but nothing serious. They’re not super committed to that kpop life™, but can put names to faces for popular idols. You won’t catch them staying up late at night watching music shows or spending hours streaming. That’s too extreme for them. 

Level Three: Has 60% chill until you talk about their faves (in that case it dramatically goes down to -25%). Stans at least one group but knows a helluva lot more. They’re slowly acquiring a collection of kpop merch. Rarely has space on phone from downloading too many pics related to their bias. Their youtube history is filled with videos that start with [ENG SUB] or Try Not To Fangirl.

Level Four: Majors in kpop politics. Is probably a veteran of a fan war or two… or more. Knows everything like seriously EVERYTHING. If you want to know something go to them. They know about any drama happening with idols or their companies. They know about debuting groups before the groups even know it themselves. Can recite the most random ass facts about ANY idol and can quote shit from like 7 years ago. They also can identify each of their 10 billion biases by their knee caps in .05 seconds. For them kpop is not an interest, it’s a lifestyle.
