oddsocksandstuff  asked:

Hi, little art help question, i want to post something I've done but don't know if I should sign it/watermark...i don't have an art account so if I put my name it won't link back to me in any way but my username is kinda long to put on. Thoughts ☺? What would you do? You seem super friendly and your art is great so hope you don't mind me asking! I was just about to post it and realised I don't have a plan for this lol

Hello!
Oh my Chuck, thank you so much for your kind words!
Well, I would sign it! I actually don’t sign my works with my name or with my url - it’s just my nickname combined with my lucky number :D ( that also kinda looks like the first letter of my surname!! )
Hm, maybe write your username as
oddsocks
andstuff
??? And maybe draw a little frame around it? I think it would look kinda cool, it would take less place AND it would link your art to your blog :D

the main difference between male and female

Aries: a female aries is lovely and charming, she has a spark to her that makes her determined to accomplish what she sets her mind to. She’s extremely erotic and open about her sexuality.

a male aries is very serious at first glance, almost shy but once they feel comfortable around you they get all weird with their drugs and anime fetiches

Taurus: a female taurus is down to earth, she appears to be quiet and softspoken but omg this girl has the craziest things going through her brain, and she will always to be hungry, is not always expressive about emotions but she gives the best gifts and hugs.

A male taurus is always really fucking strange, he’s super quirky, a gamer, addicted to game of thrones and always uses cartoon references. Funny sense of humour (borderline offensive) says love isn’t his thing, is the first one to fall.

Gemini: a gemini male almost always seems to be super attractive, either bc he’s the cute nerdy type, or the popular hot guy. really smart, likes to laugh a lot. Can be a real douche 

a female gemini is adorable and always in the mood to goof around, so freaking versatile, if she feels betrayed will spill out all ur secrets and call u out on everything bitch watch out

Cancer: cancer boys are huge babies, they are party guys, it’s all about fun and games until someone mentions ‘’love’’ and they will sit u down and ramble about what their perfect girl would be like. is always waiting on the ‘’one’’, has high af expectations but likes the simplest and most boring girls.

cancer girls are moms, they always hug you, but omg these women are so jealous with their friends, it’s like you can’t even co-exist in a room with their bestie bc they will give u the stinky eye, i can’t

Leo: leo girls are the funniest ever, end of story. they’re divas and vulgar ass men at the same time. Fashion on fleek, always looks high but it’s just their face. belongs in the 70′s.

male leos are friends with everyone, most popular guy ever, nice, likes to act all mean but it’s all playful. has a hard time settling down, deep down always wants more in a girl

Virgo: virgo women are fierce, they are softies on the inside although they always look anxious  on the outside, stressed 24/7, loves sex so much low-key addicted to it, organized but a big ass mess

virgo guys are intelectual but stubborn mofos, say a lot of dad jokes, god complex, act like they don’t know shit about trends but really loves buying clothes and dressing nice.

Libra: libra boys are guys who look like angels, so friendly and innocent, BUT BAM BITCH they hit you with their sass, they are flirty af but SO FUCKING OPINIONATED, will flat out say ‘’i don’t like girls who ____’’, expects for you to chase after them, they are actually explosive and get moody easily, really dirty jokes

libra girls are airheads, so nice and giggle all the damn time (it’s cute srry if i sound mad), they always laugh at what ur saying even if it’s dumb and not funny at all. always has a young face, most likely not very open about sexuality, modest, easily corrupted, ——–if u have a scorpio moon u are the devil regina george— :)

Scorpio: scorpio guys are psycho, 60% are sociopaths i swear, they never laugh but when they do it’s loud and crazy and no one knows why the fuck. always walk like they’re in a hurry, STARES, is a child 4ever

scorpio women are extreme, she will not shut up for hours and the next day will not speak at all. is sexual but probably a virgin, knows everyones secrets, jealous with friends, jealous with stranger guys, jealous with mom, jealous with pet, jealous with self. stalks crush and writes poems about him but will never admit it

Sagittarius: sag guys are soooooo cheesy romantic, i swear they’re the fourth water sign, literally so many emotions, likes art, falls in love so easily it’s ridiculous, IS ALWAYS FRIENDZONED OMg hilarious but with partner, lasts 4ever

Sag girls are the ones who friendzone, will forget ur name in a second, flakey, says she’s down to go out with friends and guess what, bish fell asleep.loves to gossip with u, will always wanna hook u up with her friends or find out details about ur crush. does the dirty work for everyone

Capricorn:  cap girls are outspoken, bitchy but if she likes you she will defend u till death (she’s still gonna be a bitch to u but a softer one), confident AF, always looks ready to go to a club, boys everywhere like girl where’d u get these bruhs from. everywhere you go, guys will flock them, will make u feel like a potato bc she’s so perfect. has a hard time making decisions and letting go

cap male is competitive, ambitious, smells gooooood, style on fleek, the funniest guy ever, dark humour, smart with money, is probably gonna be a CEO, mommy’s boy, loves whiskey idk, eats SO MUCH like more than anyone, is a puppy on the inside, fuckboy but diehard romantic deep down.

Aquarius: aquarius guys always look cool, bad boy, they look like they dont care (spoiler alert: they don’t) has like 219 ex girlfriends and another hundred friends with benefits, smart ass, feels superior to everyone, thinks he’s so deep, he probably is but can never show it so no one believes him.

 aqua girls are always popular, the quirky one, the one who likes things ‘’no one else likes’’, a huge hipster, simple but attractive, has so many guys who wanna be with her and she acts like she doesn’t even notice. has so many guy friends (theyallwannabangher but ok) probably artsy, has good taste in music

Pisces: pisces men walk so fucking fast, probably because of their fucking long ass legs, has a serious face almost like he’s analizing the situation but in reality they’re thinking about memes (has amazing memes), never follows his heart, has strong feelings but rarely ever acts on them. is in love with someone they dont know, always has that little shine in their eyes

pisces girls are always the cute girl, the baby, the good one. deep down these girls will say dirty shit and has that evil side that always wants to come out and play, easily makes friends, is a disney princess and loves warm things. 

We are approaching a group of people outside the walls of the city, which is currently on fire and under attack by a dragon.

Fighter: Are they cultists or fleeing villagers?

DM: They’re still about 300 feet away and it’s dark, you can’t tell.

Fighter: I start strutting towards them like in the music video for Stayin’ Alive…actually you know what I’m gonna sing it too.

Paladin: I pull out my lute and start strumming along.

Me (Cleric): I don’t understand why this is happening but I love it. I use thaumaturgy to make like, lasers and fog and shit.

DM: So you’re gonna approach these strangers while performing a full-on 80’s rock show?

Fighter: Hell yeah!

DM: Tarun, why do you have a lute? Are you even proficient with it?

Paladin: NOPE

DM: So it’s not just an 80’s rock show, it’s a SHITTY 80’s rock show. All right.

Paladin: Think about it, if they’re friendly then they’ll realize that we’re idiots and not be threatened by us. If they’re cultists maybe they’ll be so caught off guard we’ll get a surprise round.

Me: Good point! This is the best idea we’ve ever had.

DM: sighing begrudingly All of you make performance checks.

The fighter rolls a 16, the paladin rolls a 4, and I roll a 3.

DM: You approach them and finally get close enough to see them by the glow of Rhaela’s light show. They’re villagers. They’re incredibly scared, and now incredibly confused by what they think is supposed to be music. The little boy clinging to his mother’s skirt laughs at your display. Good job.

Paladin: BUT! They’re not afraid of us.

Misconceptions 

1) HOUNDS ARE NOT STUPID

2) YOU ARE NOT THEIR “MASTER

3) THEY HAVE FEELINGS

4) THEY ARE NOT PETS DAMN IT

Types of Hounds

  • Hellhounds: A demonic hound; ‘darker arts’; very good for beginners; can shift to a more human form (may or may not depending on their personal preference); Many varieties (Cerberus, Orthrus, Icarus, Rogue, Etc)
  • Heavenhounds: Angelic Hounds; ‘lighter arts’; has wings; can shift into a humanoid form if desired; takes on different types of dogs; can be good for beginners
  • Cu Sidhe (Irish)  / Cu Sith (Scottish): Faery Hounds; normally green, brown, or white; Appears normally as either an Irish Wolfhound, a Wolf, or a Greyhound; Beginners be cautious but not like, paranoid
  • Cwn Annwn: The Hounds of The Celtic God Arawn ; Grey; DO NOT CONTACT UNLESS YOU WORK WITH ARAWN / WANT TO WORK WITH HIM
  • Grim: Hounds of Death; Guardians; ‘darker arts’; Very Territorial; Intermediate

How To Bond

  • Spend time with them and their vessel
  • Talk to them
  • Do fun things with them
  • Draw them
  • Give Them Food
  • Cuddle
  • Etc

Things That Help (No Seriously, I Wish I Would Have Been Told This Stuff)

1) Get A Damn Pendulum, this is the easiest way to communicate with any spirit, is user friendly, and very inconspicuous

2) Be patient. Do not fucking get mad when they mess up, explain why thats not ok or how it should be done

3) Set house rules, but don’t be a dictator about it

4) Develop a Mom™ Voice (I mean this in a gender neutral way, but you know that voice that your mom used that made you feel compelled to do what she asked or tell her what she wanted to know? Yeah, develop one of those. Its helped me so many times its not even funny. (it actually is kinda funny tbh)

5) Vessels aren’t supposed to be an uncomfortable trap for your companion, its supposed to make it easier to feel them and connect with them. Ask to make sure their binding (if they have one) doesn’t hurt them. If it does contact the shop you got them from, break the binding you did, or have someone else (like me) break the binding and redo it. (IF YOU GOT THEM FROM A SHOP PLEASE CONTACT THAT SHOP FIRST, I don’t like stepping on other peoples work unless they refuse to help, EVERY SHOP SHOULD / WILL WANT TO KNOW IF THEIR BINDING IS INFLICTING PAIN.)


If you need help contacting any of the above mentioned spirits, please message me and I would be glad to help you 

The Honest Guide on Preparing for College

I thought it’d be cool and useful to give you guys an “Honest Guide on Preparing for College.” It has all the things you may already know, and then also some things you perhaps don’t. And a bunch of tips that are helpful for preparing for college, but also during college. I’ve been working on this post for months, adding few new tips every now and then so hopefully you guys like it and find it useful! :) I may add more tips from time to time, I’m not sure.

  1. Suffer from acne? Visit a dermatologist to get it under control ASAP. The earlier you start, the earlier you’ll see results! And trust me, you’ll be going bare-faced a lot in college. At least twice a day- morning & night. And you’ll always want to look and feel your best! It sucks to be self-conscious.
  2. Figure out a rough guideline of your morning/ night routine. Your college routine is usually not going to be the exact same as your home routine. Ie: Make up will probably be done in your room, not in the bathroom. If you use makeup often, consider buying a vanity mirror! Very useful. 
  3. You won’t need binders. I brought 3 (1-inch) in case and I hardly use one. It’s more useful to have individual folders for each class. Or even those notebook with tabs inside to hold papers. The point being, the way you organize your work is different in high school. You’re not going to the same 5 periods everyday in college. You have classes that meet MWF, and TTh, etc.
  4. Don’t forget to bring college essentials! Refer to my two posts here (”College Essential Hacks”) and here (”Things I Forgot/ Nearly Forgot to Bring to College”. 
  5. Invest in make-up. In high school, I never wore make-up but now I often wear mascara and light lipstick! I spent countless trips figuring out what shade was best for me and trying out different products. Would’ve been easier to just do this in the comfort of my own home than in college! I’m still a make-up noob though, haha. I can’t even figure out how to apply eyeliner confidently!
  6. Bring clothes you’ll actually wear. 1/3 of the clothes I’ve brought to college were never worn… They just took up closet space!
  7. Bring formal clothes too. You never know what events you’ll go to (including sorority rush, galas, etc). Don’t forget a good pair (or two) of shoes for the outfit!
  8. Realize that the first month-ish of school is the prime time to make new friends. People are more open to making new friends and are more friendly and receptive. Make the most of this!!! I can not stress this enough! Remember that first impressions can stick, so be especially graceful during this period. I would even go so far as to say that you should try to go out to a party in the first few weeks of school for two reasons…. 1) You can see if you fit with the party scene and if you enjoy it. 2) When you attend events early on, people will assume you’re down to go for the rest of the semester and you’ll get invites. (Which you can turn down, of course.)
  9. Keep in touch with old friends! Seriously. Don’t just make new college friends and forget about your old high school friends. Keep in touch! Message them regularly and keep them in the loop! It might seem like a lot of work to message them all the details about something, especially when they are unfamiliar with the people so you have to describe it a lot (Wait, who’s Jim again? What’s your roommate’s name again? etc), but it’s so rewarding to have an old, familiar friend with you as you both experience college together, but separately.
  10. Know your schedule and be on top of this. Be organized. I recommend a planner and also having a print out of your weekly schedule that has your classes and other time commitments. I actually drew my weekly schedule and hung it by my desk. It not only helps me visualize my week, but also lets my roommates know when to expect me. I also use a calendar app very diligently. Whenever I commit to an event, I immediately put it into my calendars (the app, and also my physical calendar in my room). I also inputted the dates and times of my exams/ important assignments from the get-go so I wouldn’t be surprised about when they were. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND INPUTTING THE DATES OF YOUR EXAMS AND DUE DATES OF PAPERS, ETC INTO YOUR CALENDAR ASAP!!!!!!!!
  11. Keep in touch with family. Similar reasoning with #9. But basically, your parents and siblings have lived with you all of your life. They’ll miss you. Text them, call them, facetime them once in a while. Send them a postcard. Buy them college gear. Do little things like this; they’ll really appreciate it!
  12. Don’t be so uptight and remember to be grateful. I feel like I’ve matured greatly in college. I used to have these crazy-high expectations about friendships and stuff, and now, it’s not that I have absurdly low expectations, but I just don’t take everything for granted. I am grateful for anything and everything my friends do for me. They bought me Chipotle? Aww. They reminded me about the review session? So sweet. Basically, don’t take things for granted.
  13. Don’t be that one annoying friend. You know who you are. College is a time where you can really ‘reinvent’ yourself and you should really try to be a ‘better you’ during college. Here are some traits I find annoying, personally… An annoying friend is one who does any or all of these things:
    1. “Forget” to pay a friend back for spotting you. Seriously, we all hate that person who does this and we all really respect that person who is really diligent about paying back someone. So take note. Everyone is on a tight budget in college.
    2. Rants all the time. If you’re ranting all the time and your friend is just listening, you have yourself a freaking awesome friend. Just remember that friendship means you can rant, and your friend can rant back. It’s a two-way street.
    3. Tries to peer pressure others into doing something they like. Okay, I get that you drink and smoke a lot. But you don’t need to feel the urge to ‘convert’ me to doing the same. No means no.
    4. Always bails or is flaky. Freaking annoying.
    5. Takes things too far. We all have that one friend who takes things too far and doesn’t know when to stop….
    6. Too sensitive… But we also may have an uber-sensitive friend who always holds grudges and is a grumpy cat. 
  14. Don’t skip class. Seriously. It doesn’t matter if the lecture is posted online, or if you’ll just get notes from a friend. Or if you already ‘know’ what’s being taught. Just go. Skipping class = lower grades = lower GPA = unhappy you.
  15. Be willing to try new things. This can vary to an extent from person to person. It can be as crazy as asking someone out or trying new food. College is a time of growth, new experiences, and fun times. HOWEVER, don’t do anything that will harm yourself. None of this “yolo” mantra please.
  16. Bring a lot of undies. Shirts and pants can be reworn more than once (within reason), but undies can’t. So save yourself from doing laundry all the time and bring a lot of undies.
  17. Learn to let things go. I used to be that person who held onto grudges. But since starting college, I’ve really begun to realize that life is so much more fun and enjoyable if you don’t let the little things faze you. Learn to let it go. Don’t let what that rude guy said to you this morning stick with you for the whole day. Who cares if you asked someone out and it failed? You don’t need them anyway! You’re too fabulous for them to handle! 
  18. Learn to be confident in yourself. “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You “- Dr Seuss. Over the years, I’ve found that I’ve grown much more confident and independent. I love it.
  19. Learn how to socialize and be a great conversationalist. Smile and actually pay attention to what they’re saying. Remember what they said and bring it up the next time you see them. Hey, how was your lunch at Gypsy’s with John? It makes people feel special and nice. Use their names in the conversation as often as you can (without it sounding totally awkward and weird). People like hearing their names in conversation. [Btw, I read these facts on a Time article somewhere so its legit.]. People don’t remember what you say, but they remember how you made them feel. So make them feel loved and appreciated. Laugh.
  20. Live and learn through your mistakes. No one’s perfect. So what if you bombed your first midterm? It’s the first of many. Pick yourself up and study harder for the next one. Don’t get all beaten up.
  21. Consider bringing your AP study guide books to college. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve opened my AP Calculus review book from Princeton Review to review and look up things.
  22. Keep track of your meal points. I frequently hear people saying they always have leftover meal points at the end of the year, but maybe it’s because I like to buy a lot of snacks, but I was actually behind on points for half the semester. It’s no big deal–I can easily add more points–, but just don’t be under the illusion that you have unlimited amount of points and can buy whatever you want. Be smart about rationing off your points.
  23. Don’t let one midterm grade affect you. Yeah, you failed that midterm. So what? Just do well on the next ones. There’s nothing you can do about your midterm grade–you can only improve yourself for the future. Have a good cry, rant to friends, watch some Netflix–and then realize the changes you have to make and enforce the changes. 
  24. Pick classes that you’ll enjoy. Don’t pick morning classes (if you can help it) if you’re not a morning person. Don’t take a Drawing/ Painting class if you’re not an artsy person for your Visual Arts requirement–there’s classes like Art History or stuff like that. Be reasonable about the classes you take and how much workload you know you can handle. Not everyone is the same.
  25. Go see your adviser from time to time. Just to make sure you’re on track! Work out a 4-year plan. You don’t want to have any surprises later down the road!
  26. Be careful with labels. Like “best friend” or “favorite person”. Sometimes, these can lead people on unintentionally and you’ll get yourself in awkward and uncomfortable situations where they like you but you don’t like them or something. I learned that it’s just best to call people your “friends” and unless you are really bonded with a person, then call them your best friend. But honestly, if you two are best friends, you kinda just know you are each other’s best friend–it’s a mutual feeling and it doesn’t really need to be said or labeled. I think it’s just best to rid yourself of using labels, honestly. Terms that imply exclusivity can sometimes lead people on. I think you should have a self-check with yourself every month or two and go like, “Okay, where am I at? I really like where I am right now. I could improve on this… etc etc. Let’s see the friends I’m close to… Do I think any of them likes me? I don’t want to unintentionally lead them on.” Just stuff like that.
  27. Understand your finances for college. Including scholarships, how much you’re paying, how much you’re working (if applicable), etc. Just be on top of all your money stuff! 
  28. Don’t go out and eat out a lot. I ate out a lot during freshman year. Too much. I had no regrets during the moment but now looking back, I just imagine all of the money I could’ve saved if I didn’t eat out…. :( You can save so much money by reducing how much you eat out.
  29. Be financially conscious and be mindful of how much you spend. There are plenty of hangouts you and your friends can do that don’t require money or that much money. Examples: movie nights, picnics, checking out the campus botanical garden, going sightseeing in the city, cooking dinner together, etc. Just because it costs money doesn’t mean it will always be fun, memorable or worth it–something to remind yourself of! In addition, shoot for quality over quantity. Buy a $50 pair of Rainbows sandals that will last for years, instead of flimsy, cheaply made sandals that will break after a couple of uses. Splurge on that North Face jacket–you’ll be wearing it a lot and it’s versatile and will last you years. Now that I buy groceries and cook for myself, I’ve definitely come to appreciate the value of the dollar.
  30. Realize how small the world is and how connected everything is. Don’t talk shit about people. Seriously. The person you’re complaining about may have a friend who is taking a class with the person you’re telling to. Or the person you’re telling it to may have a friend who has a friend who knows the person. If it’s one thing that keeps coming up in my time here, it’s that everyone seems to know everybody (or is a friend of a friend). So limit your shit-talking, secret-sharing, gossip talk to only your trusted confidants. Seriously, though. As you go through college, you’ll come to notice that many people will reappear in your classes because of being in the same major, and more. The world is small, y’all. Don’t be reckless.
How to Meet Local Spirits

(Revamp of my answer to this ask [x])

Local spirits are the spirits that are constantly around us, in the forests, on the beaches, in schools, in homes, etc. They can be ghosts, mythological creatures, entities never mentioned in lore before and more. Their personalities and friendliness towards humans can vary quite a bit, especially depending on where you live. Think of them as your spirit neighbors. Some might remain as such for the entire time that you know them, others might become your companions or maybe even your rivals! The important thing is that you respectfully interact with them and be aware of their boundaries.

There’s two main ways that I’ve found to make contact with local spirits: call them to you or go outside and meet them in the places they live. Calling them to you is actually kind of a similar concept to conjuring except that you are only calling to the spirits that live in your area and that there’s no guarantee that they’ll show up. Going out is like a scientist going on a field study for an organism that they’re interested in: might find them, might not, and if it’s spirits we’re talking about then might find but they don’t want to be interacted with.

That’s the biggest thing to remember when working with local spirits, that not all spirits are interested in interacting with humans. In fact, many spirits couldn’t care less about humans or even actively have ways to prevent humans from meeting them. You should respect spirits that don’t want to be worked with. If you really want to work with a particular group then you could try negotiating with them or slowly building up a relationship with them in order to see if they will eventually be willing. Just don’t force any spirit to interact or speak with you, that will end badly for you every time.

Safety

Spirit work isn’t always the safest thing and there’s many ways that you can be harmed. The most important thing to have is a protective circle. It will protect you from many things and can actually be very versatile. Obviously this is hard to make when going out and meeting spirits so we’ll separate the safety procedures for each technique.

Going Out to Meet the Spirits

When going out not only is it harder to bring and set up materials, you’re also in public a lot of the time which limits what you can do. That is why personal warding is important. Personal warding can take the form of energy shields, protective amulets, etc. These are things that should be prepared before going out with the intent of meeting spirits so that they are ready in case you do get attacked.

Calling the Spirits

Calling the spirits comes with the risk of inviting unknown entities into your home. That is why it is important to have wards and a protective circle. The circle will protect you if they try to attack you during the meeting while the wards will prevent them from getting back in after being banished. Generic wards are basic spirit work stuff so I’m not going to go into them here.

A circle, however, can be made in many different ways. The most important thing to keep in mind is that it has protective elements that you feel are helpful to you, not what some list on the internet says. You could take from traditional circles and use them as a template for creating your own or you can completely make a new style of circle. The possibilities are endless! Some things you might want to include are protective stones, the names of deities you work with, protective words or sigils, candles, etc. Any physical item you use should have a designated spot for it. Your orientation of the elements of the circle is also important, or well it can be if you ascribe that importance! Perhaps you use the four elements to protect you in your circle and you associate them with a particular direction for example.

When you decide on what the circle should look like, practice making and using it! You can draw it out on an old sheet so that you don’t have to keep remaking it, you can set out physical items in the shape of a circle or you can create it with energy if you’re good at that. However you make it, it’s important to get used to being in it and the energy that goes into “activating” it. Activating it usually involves calling upon whatever makes up the circle to protect you. Sticking with the element example, you’d activate is by calling for Fire, Water, Earth, and Air to protect you. Once you are done with the circle, you must close it. This usually means allowing whatever you called upon to depart but in the reverse order from before. Try it out, play around with it, find or create whatever procedure that is comfortable to you.   

When speaking with spirits, do not let them in no matter how much they try to persuade you. Also, do not leave the circle until you are sure that they are gone. That’s why you should keep any banishing tools and the like on hand so you don’t have to run and fetch them. If you don’t follow both of those rules then what’s the point of making the circle?

[There’s many different ways to use a circle, this is just a generic explanation of it].

Calling the Spirits to You

This process includes creating a call of energy and sending it out into the “energy network” of your local area. Spirits in the area can hear this call and choose whether or not to answer it and show up.

Tools needed: An offering for the spirit that you are calling, any banishing tools, any physical items that make up your circle, a wand if you need/use one, and any communication tools if you need them.

Making the Call: Cast your circle, set your offering outside of it and get into a clear state of mind where you can access your energy. Say the call, either out loud or in your head, doesn’t matter. It can be anything but basically along the lines of “I call to any [spirit name] that would be interested in speaking with me for [an interview]. In return, I have an offering of [the offering]”. You can call them for any reason but like I’ve mentioned before, they’re not obligated to come. As you say the call, form the energy of your words into a ball of energy in front of you. This is where you can use your wand to help channel the energy easier. Visualization also helps here. Once it is formed and stable, send it out in all directions into the environment. I usually just shoot a quick burst of energy at it to give it the momentum to move fast but you can flick your wrist/wand or do whatever it is you normally do to send energy out.  

Even after you finish saying the call, you can feed more energy into the energy ball if you want the call to be “louder” and travel farther. This can be dangerous though because since the call is made from your energy, it is connected to you and that’s how the spirits who answer your call can find you. When the call reaches the limits of its strength it disappears and all links to you are gone. However, the stronger you make it, the longer it is out in the environment and the more likely unexpected spirits can trace you. So basically, don’t make the call too powerful.     

Meeting the Spirit: If the call isn’t made too strong (aka the amount of energy that the sample call above makes) then at most, it should take 10 minutes for the call’s energy to die out (usually not actually that long but it’s good to be safe). After you finish speaking with the spirit, thank them for coming and allow them to leave. Make sure that they are actually gone before closing your circle. If a spirit doesn’t appear within that time you can either resend the call or close your circle and try again later.  

Notes: Creating the call doesn’t guarantee that a spirit will show up. It also doesn’t mean that the spirit who shows up is the spirit that you called to. I mean in the four years that I’ve been using this technique, I’ve never had the “wrong” spirit show up but I find it very hard to believe that it’s not possible. Both of these are reasons why it’s important to have the basic techniques for being able to sense a spirit’s presence and determine their identity.

Going Out and Meeting Spirits

This process is much more straightforward. You essentially go out to places in your area like beaches, parks, schools, etc., see if you can sense any spirits, and then see if any are interested in talking with you.

Tools needed: Any protective amulets or items that you have and an offering for any spirits you may come across

I don’t have much explanation for this because it ain’t much more complex than that. If you don’t know who you’re going to meet, generic offerings to bring include water, alcohol, bread, rice, tobacco, etc. If you know of an offering that the spirits where you’re headed would prefer then bring that. No matter what you bring do not leave anything that will pollute the environment. Any food offerings you bring should be in a container and then properly disposed of, not thrown on the ground for example.    

Set out the offering and ask if anyone wants it. You can also respectfully approach anyone you see and ask if they would want it. If they decline your offer, then don’t press them. Just give them a “okay, sorry for bothering you” and leave. Be respectful when interacting with them, you are on their territory after all.

Also be smart about who you approach. If someone’s energy makes you feel uncomfortable or they’re a species or have an affiliation with a group that is known to be hostile, then be aware that you may need to defend yourself if you choose to approach them and things go sour. Of course not all bad-feeling spirits are actually bad, not all good-feeling spirits are actually good, and first impressions can be misleading. Just trust your intuition and be prepared for the worst in case it happens.  

What to Do if You Are in Danger

It’ll happen. Not all spirits are friendly and many might look at you as prey or something to mess with. The most important thing to do is stay calm. When a spirit attacks, it can be very scary so I know that keeping a clear head isn’t always the easiest of things in that situation. That is why you should develop a clear plan for dealing with attacks beforehand and have all the tools that you need already prepared. If it’ll help, write down a basic procedure for banishing and keep it in your pocket or somewhere else that spirits won’t be able to easily see. That way even if you’re freaking out, you’ll have a lifeline telling you what to do.

Calling the Spirits

If a spirit attacks, tries to force their way into your circle, or suddenly acts hostile, banish immediately. It’s best not to take any chances. Once they are banished, cleanse the area and reinforce your wards. Sometimes spirits may do something that might make you uncomfortable but you don’t feel as though it’s bad enough to warrant forcing them out. You can simply ask them to leave or let them know that the behavior will not be tolerated. If they ignore your request, banish them. It’s possible that a spirit isn’t aware that they might be making you uncomfortable and so talking it out first before immediately jumping to banishing (if they’re not actively attacking you) could be beneficial for both of you. Just remember to be firm in your boundaries and don’t let the spirit persuade you into letting them go.  

Reasons not to banish a spirit:

If they look “scary”. Their appearance doesn’t always reflect their personality. For some, that’s just the way that they were born.

If they’re a “demon”. Demon is a very useless, broad term that describes a myriad of entities all of which have different personalities and moralities. “Demon” is not the equivalent of “evil”.

Going out and Meeting the Spirits

The difference here is that you can’t really banish spirits when you visit them at their homes. That’d be like going over to a friend’s house and trying to kick them out. If a spirit attacks you while you’re away from your protected space, the best you can do is get out of there. If you came prepared with proper protection then it should be able to buy you enough time to escape. Depending on the situation, the attacking spirit may or may not be interested in chasing you. So, sometimes “escaping” can be simply removing yourself from the area immediately as the spirit is just acting aggressive so that you’ll back off. But other times, you may need to do a little more than that. If you suspect that you got followed home, perform a banishing of your property and cleanse yourself and the area. Then reinforce your wards.

The one thing that I have to say is that you need to be cognizant of why that spirit is attacking you. More specifically, you need to be aware of when your actions provoke a spirit to attack. Did you infringe upon their territory? Did you bother them after they told you that they didn’t want to interact? You are out in their realm, just as a spirit that you invite into your house should respect you, you should respect spirits when you meet them at their homes.     

Which Process Should You Use?

It depends on what “level” of spirit work you’re at and what you want to accomplish. Calling a spirit to you is definitely requires an intermediate skill level in energy and spirit work whereas going out and meeting them only requires that you be able to sense and communicate with spirits. However, when you call a spirit to you, they’re more likely to be willing to talk since that’s what they came for according to your call. You’re also more protected since you’re able to have your circle and tools right at hand. Spirits that you simply meet outside aren’t always going to want to speak and it’s a bit harder to protect against them. So which process should you use? Both.

Not all spirits are interested in answering a call but they may be willing to talk with you come across them when outside. Sometimes, you need a long conversation with a spirit which is where calling them will be more useful. Calling them might even seem more convenient but I think that it’s important that you learn about the spirits around you by going out and meeting them before calling them to you. It not only helps you get a better idea of the community but it also lets spirits get a better idea of who you are.

NHL!Bitty, Part IX - ‘Loose Lips Sink Ships’

(Alright, you guys voted for #2, so enjoy!)

Eric gets hit on in a hotel bar during All-Star weekend. For the first time in a long time, it’s not because he’s a famous hockey player.

It would be very flattering, except the man trying to seduce him works for Jack’s PR firm, and bro is playing fast and loose with some seriously confidential information. 

NHL!Bitty Masterpost!


It’s been a long, exhausting day. Between the flight, check-in, the press junket, the photo ops, all Eric wants is to get a little bit drunk with the guys, grab some dinner, and fool around in Jack’s hotel room. Hopefully in that order, but he’s open to fooling around whenever.

He must have a dopey smile on his face thinking about the debauchery he’s been looking forward to all week when he realizes someone is watching him from across the bar. 

Tall, nice hair, professional, and he’s looking at Eric, no, at the empty chair next to him. And he’s walking over. 

“Is this seat taken?”

some (more) tips for incoming college freshmen, based on the mistakes i made during my first year

a continuation of this post, because i actually made this many mistakes

✎ utilize your professors’ office hours. the best help you can get is directly from the one person who knows how your assignments will be graded and what will be on your tests. and, in classes with a lot of students, getting the professor to know who you are is always a plus

✎ be friendly and talk to people! there are so many interesting people you can get to know on a college campus, and it’s actually pretty unlikely that somebody will be rude or judge you for trying to have a conversation

✎ if you found yourself hiding aspects of yourself in high school to ‘fit in’ with everyone else, college might be the perfect time to let that go. don’t be afraid to express yourself more than you might have before. after all, you’re with completely new people in a completely new place (probably). it’s the perfect opportunity to start over and be yourself, as cliche as that sounds

✎ at the beginning of the semester, make friends/exchange phone numbers with other students in your classes. it’s sooo helpful to be able to text somebody who is in your class if you need help. having this connection can also be useful if you know you’re going to miss a class and you’d like to get the notes from someone!

✎ don’t be afraid of the library. it’s a great environment for studying, it has computers and printers you can use, it’s probably fairly large so you can find somewhere (mostly) away from other people, and it’s most likely open really late! it’s just overall a great resource

✎ if you have a problem with your roommate, talk to them about it. don’t ignore it until you can’t stand each other. i didn’t personally make this mistake last year, but i know multiple people who did

✎ if you ever have a question about your degree requirements, dropping a class, choosing/changing your major, etc. don’t hesitate to contact your academic advisor! they typically know what they are talking about, so just email them! it can’t hurt!

✎ on the topic of changing your major, please don’t stress too much if you start to question your major (if you have one already) or the path you’re on. it’s okay to realize the subject you originally wanted to study isn’t what you want to study anymore. it’s only your first year! you’re absolutely allowed to change your mind

✎ please don’t be afraid to use your school’s counseling center if it has one. take advantage of the free professional help. it’s so much better to talk to someone than to suffer alone

MY JIKOOK TIMELINE SERIES pt.1

So I can see many people are interested in my analysis of Jikook relationship. Since I have been fan from 2014 and also have been shipping Jikook from that time I will focus it mainly on my opinion about their relantionship from that year. I am also gonna put here my theory about their relationship from the time before I became a fan but it is not going to be as detailed. I think this is going to be really tiring post to read so I decided to split it into several parts because I have a lot to say. ( I might make this as series and talk about all the moments and future moments in the future)

DISCLAIMER: This post is supposed to be just for fun and shipping of Jikook. I am not claiming this is truth and I am not forcing anyone to believe this. These are just my observations throughout the years I have been into BTS and the time I have been into shipping jikook. I don’t want to cause any types of fanwars or stupid “shipwars” by this post and I don’t want other people to use this content for these kind of purposes. Also I am opened to hear about your other opinions. Just if you don’t like my opinion don’t be later on rude in my asks or something. As I said I am opened to listen but I AM NOT GONNA TOLERATE HATE OR PEOPLE BEING RUDE TO ME JUST BECAUSE I HAD FUN WITH THIS.

SO when everything is clear now let’s begin.

Pre-debut years + 2013

I have not much to say to this period of time. But from my observations I got Jikook was totally hyung/dongsaeng relationship. In my opinion Jungkook might have feel something more than just appreciation towards his hyung. You know when you are at that age and you have not much idea what is just adoring someone friendly and what are actually real feelings toward someone. I think Jungkook was really confused at that time because he was realizing that something might be going on but also the social stigma and sudden exposition to cameras and publicity were holding him back to sit down and think about it. From Jimin’s point of view Jungkook was his cute dongsaeng that reminded him of his younger brother. I think him missing his home and sudden change of environment resulted in Jimin really caring for Jungkookie naturally thanks to his personality and attitude towards Bangtan.

Late 2013+early 2014

In my opinion this was the period when Jungkook started to get really confused. He knew he cares for his hyung and he knew he likes him a lot. But I think that he had to feel something more from the beginning and that’s what was confusing him. Even though I think he was confused I still think he wasn’t putting too much mind into it. I think Jimin was just his favourite hyung at that time. This was also the period of so called “clingy Jimin” and “refusing maknae”. In my opinion Jungkook have never despised or hated Jimin. There is just no way of that happening in Bangtan and I think it is really stupid to even joke about it or bringing it up. Jungkook was just simple pubescent boy. The person he liked he teased.He knew how Jimin gets annoyed when people ignore him or how self-conscious he was about his height.

 Also a huge aspect in this played that Jungkook maybe showed his affection towards Jimin behind cameras but it was really hard for him to express himself in front of them. I think the whole jikook bickering might have started by one moment where Jungkook felt uncomfortable to express himself and showing skinship. But maknae acting that way towards his hyung was really hilarious and that’s why it continued. We also know that Jungkook always looks up to his hyungs and when they were teasing Jimin he probably thought it was also OK for him to tease Jimin. From Jimin’s point of view I think it was still the same as before. I don’t think feelings played role in his relationship with Jungkook from the beginning and I would dare to even say he was being kinda obvious to Jungkook for a really long time. To be honest I still like this period of their relationship even though many jikook shippers are trying to forget about it.  You ask me why? The reason is that I found really entertaining to watch fetus Jungkook trying to get attention of his hyung but also trying to act like he is his own boss and that he doesn’t need his hyung at all.  I also could kinda see his inner struggle most of the time. Or on the other hand when he was doing a lot of skinship unconsciously. 

What I also really like about this period was that Jungkook even though he acted like he didn’t care he still found a moments how to show he his appreciation for his hyung. Do you remember the moment during AHL when  Jimin was really pissed at that kid and Jungkook showed total concern with his hyung. That he understands how things like THESE piss Jimin off. This shows how close Jikook have been even though they used to play that “cat and mouse game”.(also shows that Jungkook wasn’t being disrespectful towards Jimin at all) Jungkook joking towards Jimin was ok even though he is younger but some young-blooded kid scolding Jimin was no way go.

Slytherin!Tom AU - Three

One | Two // Four | Epilogue

Artwork for Slytherin!Tom & Hufflepuff!Reader made by my love Bila aka @trashholland 💚🖤 + 💛🖤 (I literally cried, thank you so much again. I love you!)


“So, you up for it?” I laughed lightly, taking Tom’s proposal as a joke. We had been hanging around each other for a few weeks now – almost a month and a half, actually. We hadn’t been on an ‘actual’ date, hell, I didn’t even know if that’s what Tom wanted. Sometimes he’d come off as more friendly than usual, then he’d distance himself. We only ever really talked outside of class, when he wasn’t around his Slytherin path. Something like that might’ve thrown me off, but he had defended me every time one of his ‘friends’ ridiculed me. So, I left it alone.

“A quidditch match?” Tom shrugged, sitting up on my bed as he watched me pace around, looking for my Charms book. “Why would I want to go to a quidditch match? I don’t even thoroughly understand it.” Tom laughed, causing me to smile, just like his laugh always did.

“I don’t know! We could go together – my buddy’s part of the team–.”

“And by ‘buddy’ you mean Nicholas? The same Nicholas who doesn’t make his disgust toward me the least bit subtle?” Tom’s shoulders slouched – I knew he wasn’t anything like Nicholas, which made me confused as to why he’d want to associate himself with him. “I’m sorry, I just don’t get it.”

“Don’t get what?” I could tell Tom was quickly becoming annoyed with the subject, but I couldn’t drop it. I wanted – no, needed – to know why Tom gave Nicholas the time of day.

“Why are you friends with him?” Drop it, Hufflepuff. I shook my head, trying to shake the voice inside of my head out – trying to silence the rational part of me.

“This again?” Tom got up from the bed, walking up to me. “Nicholas – he’s been my friend since I was assigned Slytherin – a lot of people didn’t think I belonged here. They punked me around – Nick, he saw something in me.”

“And that’s your standard? Nicholas’ standards are yours? That seems a little low, in my opinion. You could be so much better–!” Tom’s chest was rising and falling rapidly, his breaths quick as he walked up to me, causing me to stumble back slightly, colliding with my desk.

“Better? Like who? Like you, Hufflepuff?” I visibly shrunk, not hearing my house name come out so venomously from Tom – only hearing the word stumble out of his nervous lips as he fumbled for his words when I gave him the flower. “That’d be nice, right? If everyone was all smiles, ‘thank you’s’, rainbows and shit like you guys, right?” I shook my head, swallowing thickly to relieve my dry throat.

“No, Tom I–!”

“You what? You didn’t know this was coming? I’m a fucking Slytherin, for christ’s sake. What the fuck did you expect?” I kept quiet, my hands trembling from Tom’s sudden outburst, not realizing his voice had risen until he cleared his throat. He shook his head at me. “You know what? Don’t bother coming to the game.” He started to walk away and toward the door, causing me to reach my hand out and grasp onto his wrist.

“Tom, wait,” my hand fell back to my side after Tom forcefully pulled his hand away from mine.

“We should just – not be around each other. ‘You could be so much better’.” He mocked my words from earlier. I shook my head, my bottom lip quivering slightly.

“Tom, that isn’t – that’s not what I meant.” He shrugged.

“Maybe not – but maybe it’s what you should have said.” And before I could say anything else, he was out of my door. I groaned, my teeth sinking into my bottom lip to stop myself from crying. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Just Pretend

Summary: Stiles tells his dad he has a boyfriend. The problem is, he doesn’t actually have one.

Notes: Written for @the-darkhunter, who wanted #7 from this list. (On AO3)


The only warning Derek gets is Stiles hissing, “Be cool,” in his ear.

And that doesn’t really tell him what he’s actually supposed to do, but he starts to get an idea when Stiles grabs his hand, twining their fingers together. Then he calls out, “Dad!” brightly, and Derek realizes that the Sheriff is walking over.

“Hello,” the Sheriff says, looking directly at Derek. “You must be Derek Hale, I’ve heard so much about you.” He cocks an eyebrow. “Haven’t had you over for dinner though, why might that be?”

He says it in an offhand, friendly sort of way, but it immediately puts Derek on edge. It doesn’t help that he doesn’t know what the hell the Sheriff is talking about.

anonymous asked:

You know what makes me wonder, is that Boris at the end of chapter 2 seems to be perfectly fine and all friendly and chipper. Not evil at all. I wonder if Bendy used to be like that, but is possessed or something. Doesn't make sense that boris is all cool but Bendy is all crazy you know? I don't know. So hyped for chapter 3!

I’ve got a theory, and it’s a theory that’s actually existed since Chapter 1 was first released.  It’s also, ironically, a theory that I never really cared for… but Chapter 2 has added a significant helping of support for it.

Mary Christiansen: The Amy Winehouse of Dream Daddy

WARNING: Contains Mild Spoilers for Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator

On Saturday, July 22nd, I bought the video game Dream Daddy, knowing good and well that I only had $35 to last me until the following Thursday. Still, I was excited; the fact that I was finally going to be able to play a video game – other than one created by BioWare – in which there was an LGBTQ+ influence throughout was enough to get me motivated to play it. When I first booted up the game, it took me 3 hours and some-odd minutes straight to play the story of the initial character I wanted to romance when I first found out the game was being made. It was in this playthrough however, I ran into a character that made me look at this game in a different light. Not as the fun romantic romp I initially expected of it, but one that heavily mirrored a real life tragedy.

I’m of course talking about the character Mary Christiansen.

We’re introduced to her character in a bar, hitting on the main character – our “dadsona” – unsuccessfully before given the option of entertaining the company of one of the main romantic interests in the game. Depending on our choices, we advance in the story thinking nothing of the encounter. However, it isn’t until later on in the prologue that we find out that she’s a key character in the plots of multiple romance options made available to us in the game.

One of those romance options being Joseph Christiansen, her husband.

Now I never experienced her later on in the story once this twist was revealed to me; the character I wanted to pursue had nothing to do with the story revolving either Joseph or Mary herself. However, that didn’t mean I wasn’t curious. So I looked into what the story thread regarding this mother of four had to offer. And at first glance, I could understand where a lot of players who regularly interacted with her in their gameplay came from.

The fact being that nobody liked her.

When pursuing Robert, she was always a third wheel; her presence constantly hindered you from being close to him.

Pursuing Joseph allowed you to see to a certain extent the level of dysfunction between the two, constantly making you wonder why the two of them keep trying to make this relationship work, despite the children being involved.

All of these interactions make yourself wonder why she’s such an antagonistic force during your playthroughs regarding your advancement of certain characters.

Until you begin to pursue Damien, and you see that she has another side to her.

One that involves volunteering at an animal shelter, and that of a genuine and endearing friendship and level of protection regarding the Victorian Gothic love interest you’re pursuing. In the midst of your confusion it causes you to retrace her role in Robert’s story as well. You remember that even during all of the “cock-blocking” she did, there was the same amount of comradery with Robert that she had with Damien. And in both stories, she warns you of what would happen if your dadsona would hurt either character in any way.

You find yourself wondering why a woman you constantly see with a glass of wine in her hand the majority of the time, and constantly throws herself at every man she sees in the bar you frequent depending on who it is you’re romancing, would be so protective and friendly toward anyone at all after seeing how she and her husband interact.
Then you remember one of Robert’s lines in his story: “She’s harmless.”

And you know what? He’s right.

Because the actual story of Mary Christiansen in Dream Daddy is one of functioning yet recovering heartbreak, and an excellent example of art imitating life via storytelling.

The life her story is imitating – whether intentional or not – being that of the late Amy Winehouse.

A singer with a phenomenal crooning voice for jazz and swing, whose history with depression mixed with growing too famous too quickly, unintentionally paved the way for Mary’s tropes upon entering her relationship and marriage with Blake Fielder.

According to the documentary “Amy,” she was head over heels in love with him, despite it being his influence that initially placed her on the road to ruin. But what initially made her see how far the road would go, was the fact that Fielder wanted nothing to do with her anymore. Heartbroken and vengeful, she made the decision to sleep with one of his closest friends, knowing that one of them “had to finish the other off.” These events helped birth her alcoholism, and the attempt to place her in rehab by her manager that could have possibly saved her life if it weren’t for the denial of her father.

Mary’s situation is similar, yet different at the same time. Whereas Joseph never placed her on a path to self-ruin by introducing her to drugs and alcohol, the decisions he made before the timeline of the game placed them both in an endless void of heartbreak and unhappiness. Because of the game’s context, the fact that Joseph is a romance option for your dadsona, that he is the only one currently still in a heterosexual relationship, and that depending on the order of the stories you decide to play, and certain histories regarding the other romance options and Joseph himself are revealed to the players with the help of cleverly placed clues and common sense, it is easy to figure out that – for one reason or another – Joseph has not been one hundred percent faithful to Mary.

It isn’t hard to figure out that according to Mary’s actions, her demeanor, and her lack of care regarding certain situations both before and over the course of this game, this bitterness is the result of Joseph’s choices. Just like the late Amy Winehouse, these actions between the two characters turned Mary to alcoholism and nearly becoming what Amy herself admitted in an interview in the documentary to being “the most reckless.”

But not everything the late singer went through translated to the video game, intentional or not. While Amy admitted to sleeping around after Fielder’s leave, Mary never cheated on Joseph, not even out of vengeance. While Amy was denied the professional help she needed that could have possibly saved her life, Mary received her own form of rehabilitation in the form of volunteering her time to a noble cause, along with the bonds she formed with Robert and Damien; always proving how protective she is over them once the dadsona has reached a certain threshold in their romances.

While certain things regarding her and Joseph have not been reprimanded according to what has been currently revealed to us in the game from let’s players so far, the fact of the matter is that Mary Christiansen is not – for lack of better phrasing – the “self-destructive bitch” a good chunk of those playing the game perceive her as. Intentional or not, Mary Christiansen – like those of us regarding Amy Winehouse both in life and in death – is a soul that a lot of us just wants to see find true happiness. Mary just had a better system of support that allowed her to gain a form of functionality as she works through what she needs to do in order to heal.

And, depending on the actions of the one playing the game, a dadsona willing to put in the work to make sure he’s able to successfully walk her home.

Alarm clock does it’s job and I turn it off. I look at the time. 7:00AM. I roll out of bed and walk straight t my bathroom. I turn on the shower and get in. Hot water going down my spine. I relax and just think.

It’s my first day of work. I’ve always wanted to be an actor, but I never thought that my career would start with a bang. I mean, we all know who John Green is and to shoot a movie that he wrote a script to is amazing. Plus, I get to work with Cody.

I didn’t know him before, but I soon found out, who was playing Jack (my best friend, then my boyfriend) I googled him and I have to admit, he’s cute. I mean he is older than me,but only a couple of years so it doesn’t make that kind of a difference.

7 Years - BadBoy! Jeon Jungkook x Reader - Part 5

Part 1  Part 2  Part 3  Part 4  Part 5 - Here  Part 6  Part 7  Part 8  Part 9  Part 10.1  Part 10.2  Part 10.3  Part 11  Part 12  Part 13  Part 14  Part 15  Part 16 Part 17  Part 18  Part 19  Part 20 - Final


It took the rest of weekend to get over what you had witnessed at the party and you came to the conclusion that you were being over dramatic. Sure, Hye Mi was someone you held a deep dislike towards but Jungkook was still a ‘player’ and who he ‘played with’ was none of your concern, even if it turned out to be her.

Upon entering school on Monday, you were surprised to see them both sitting in their separate seats, Hye Mi seemingly trying to hide from someone. When you had sat yourself down, Jungkook took that as his cue to greet you.

“Hey, my cute Y/N. How are you?” Head snapping up, you were met with Jungkook’s signature bunny like grin.

You were suspicious, who wouldn’t be? The sudden compliment had caught you off guard and you weren’t sure how to respond properly.  

“I’m good…” Jungkook either didn’t take notice of your cautious response or ignored it because he began to make small talk with you. You occasionally nodded to give the impression of listening but the only thing you could think of was his strange behaviour. It seemed like he was too drunk on Saturday to remember what had happened and you silently thanked god. You didn’t want to have to deal with the awkward tension of an argument so early on a Monday morning.

When the time for class to start had come, he stood from his crouching position in front of you and pinched your cheek.

“See you later, sweet cheeks.” He then winked at you and left.

Was he using his 'player charm’ on you? He never treated you like that so his unusual behaviour had left you confused for the whole morning.

-

When lunch had arrived, both you and Areum had made you way to your seats at the boys table. Jungkook immediately flashed you another wink, much like the one from the morning.

“Hey, doll.” The various nicknames he had given you throughout the day were starting to annoy you and you weren’t sure how long it would be until you flipped. Areum sent you a surprised look and you replied with a shrug. She seemed to get the general message as she returned her attention to her lunch. You too wanted to know why he was behaving like this but  instead decided to keep your mouth shut.

Surely, it would be over by the end of the day.

Right?

Wrong.

It was when you were exiting the school with Areum where you had had enough.

“Bye, babe. See you tomorrow.” Freezing in place, you turned your body painfully slow until you were directly facing him. “What did you just call me?”

“Babe. What’s wrong?” You felt something within you snap and you marched towards him, grabbing his collar.

“Listen Jungkook! I’m not one of your playthings or side chicks. I’m your friend. Stop calling me these bullshit sickeningly sweet names because I swear to god I will punch you in the face.” His smile had dropped and he placed a hand on yours, prying your fingers off of him.

“Well what the fuck do you want then?! You weren’t happy at the party because I wasn’t thinking about your feelings and now that I’m making some kind of fucking effort, you decide to freak the fuck out! Make up your mind, Y/N!” Taking several steps back, you stared at him with a glare on your face.

“I just want you to treat me like a friend. I don’t need you drowning me in compliments every two seconds. Heck, you can call me loser for all I care. Just don’t treat me like those girls you throw away to the side every week. I’m not that desperate for attention.” Feeling like you were being too much of a bitch, you gave him a strained smile and made your way back to a shocked Areum.

“See you tomorrow, Jungkook!” Grabbing Areums arm, you walked ahead and left him standing there.

If only you could see the impressed smirk that spread on his lips.

“She must be bipolar or something…”

-

It seemed like your words had successfully gotten through to Jungkook without causing any unwanted anger since the next day, his greeting lacked the embarrassingly sweet pet names.

“So, what was that about yesterday anyway? And don’t lie to me, Jungkook.” He sheepishly rubbed the back of his head and then lent his chin on the backrest of the seat in front of you.

“You seemed like you were upset with me and I just wanted to make you feel happy, I guess.” Raising an eyebrow, you tilted your head and stared at him. “You guess?”

He pushed his lips out and glanced to the side, avoiding your question.

“If you call me by those crappy nicknames again, I’ll leave you for Taehyung.” Eyes widening, he snapped his attention back to you.

“No way! He can’t replace me, nothing can replace me! Those 7 years aren’t going to be ruined by Tae.” Jungkook proceeded to grab your cheeks, and pinch them causing you to flinch and grab his hair. Playfully tugging at it, you sent him a threatening glare and he slowly released his grip on you.

“I’m serious. You’re not leaving me.” You weren’t sure why but your cheeks heated at his sentence and you narrowed your eyes at him.

“You say that like we’re dating or something…” Instead of replying, he shot you his bunny-like grin and tapped his wristwatch with two fingers.

“Wha-” Before you could ask him what he meant, he jumped out of his seat and strolled back to his desk.

You definitely were not dense. That action was his way of saying 'soon’ without having to actually speak.  

He didn’t think your friendship could become more, did he?

Deciding that it was best to ignore what had just happened, you retrieved your notebook from your bag, preparing for your first lesson.

-

Lunch soon arrived and you made your way to the lunch line alone. The line had been moving unusually fast today and you were already eyeing the special dish of the day, when a tap on your shoulder broke you out of your trance. Upon turning around you were met with the familiar face of Jung-Hoon, a boy you shared a couple of classes with. He was relatively popular and most claimed he was the typical good-boy, although how he really acted was a mystery to almost everyone.

“Hey Y/N. How are you?” You supposed it was rude to continue staring at him with your eyebrows furrowed, so you offered him a friendly smile.

“Hi… I’m good, what about you?” He obviously didn’t sense your confusion as he continued to smile brightly at you, seemingly satisfied with your reply.

“I’m great, thanks for asking. Actually, I originally wanted to ask if you wanted to hang out at some point this week? You know catch up a bit?” What was there to catch up on? Sure, you had been partners a couple of times for school projects but other than that you were never close enough to be considered friends. You, being someone who could never say no in the face of kindness, agreed to his idea.

“Cool! So, I’ll see you at the bubble tea place around the corner on Saturday at 2?” Slowly nodding your head, he placed his hand on your shoulder and presented you with one last smile before jogging off.

What just happened?

A couple of minutes later, you were heading towards your usual table with the boys and Areum when you spotted Jungkook’s perplexed face staring right at you. Sitting down on your seat, he immediately bombarded you with questions.

“Was that Jung-Hoon? He was speaking to you right? What did that bastard want?” Taking a spoon of egg fried rice and stuffing it into your mouth, you slowly chewed whilst allowing Jungkook to finish asking his questions.

“Yes that was Jung-Hoon, yes he was speaking to me and Bastard? He’s a nice guy.” A scoff escaped Jungkook’s lips and he scowled at your last sentence. “Nice guy my ass, that guy is the devil in disguise.”

“Really? He invited me out on Saturday…” Jungkook’s head snapped up so fast, you were sure it was going to fly right off his neck.

“What! You said no right?” When you shook your head he almost choked on his food. “Jungkook… are you jealous?” Surprisingly, he didn’t react to your question and instead looked at you with a seriousness you didn’t know he possessed.

“Yeah, I’m jealous so don’t hang around with that piece of shit.” Letting out a heavy sigh, you began playing with your rice. “It’s too late Jungkook. You know me, I can’t say no when people are being nice.”

“Fucks sake!” He smashed his hand down on the table, effectively bringing the surrounding tables attention on you for a split second before they realised it was just Jungkook getting angry. Knowing about Jungkook’s bad temper, you hadn’t even flinched at his action. You took a sip out of your water bottle, holding his furious glare with a look of indifference. Huffing in annoyance, Jungkook ran a hand through his hair in frustration, calming himself down.

“If that shit hurts you, physically or mentally, i’ll fucking kill him.” Nodding, you beamed at him, happy that you had come to a somewhat normal conclusion.

“Thanks Kookie!” When the nickname left your lips, he looked away whilst rubbing the back of his neck.

“Whatever…”

“Someone please explain to me why Jungkook has decided to stop being a little bitch after he’s woken me up.” Needless to say, Yoongi complained about how inconsiderate people are for the rest of the lunch break.

-

The days came and went until Friday arrived and once again Areum was absent from school due to sudden vomiting. You had felt increasingly uncomfortable at the smiles Jung-Hoon had been sending you from across the classroom but decided against telling Jungkook because, let’s be honest, he would lose his shit over it.

You were continuously questioned by Jungkook at lunch, over whether you still wanted to meet up with Jung-Hoon, to which you replied 'yes’ each time. He looked like he wanted to argue more but left it at that when the bell to signal the end of lunch had rang.

When you had reached the end of the school day, Jungkook insisted on walking you home, claiming he wanted to visit your family.

“Why?” Your one word question had grabbed his complete attention and he simply smirked.

“I’m sure your mother misses seeing her child’s 'soulmate’.” Blushing, you began walking ahead in a poor attempt to leave him behind.

“That was like 9 years ago. We’re not 'soulmates’ anymore.” His smirk widened and he peered down at your red face.

“Actually, we’re soulmates until I say we’re not.” Rolling your eyes, you stopped in front of your house, pulling your keys out. When you opened the door, you were immediately greeted with your 15 year-old sister bounding down the stairs and enveloping you in a hug.

“Wow, this is a first. S/N giving me a hug?” She giggled and turned her attention to Jungkook, a look of realisation settling on her face.

“Jungkook!? We haven’t seen you in ages!” He grinned and ruffled your sisters hair, making her smile back.

“I’m impressed you remember me, you were 6 the last time I saw you.”  Your mother emerged from the kitchen, an excited grin planted on her face and you groaned.

“Ah! Jungkook, is that you? You’ve grown up so well!” She proceeded to embrace him as if he was her long lost child and he returned it with as much happiness as her.

“It’s nice to see you, M/N. How are you?” Whilst they broke into a small conversation, you took that as your opportunity to escape to your room. Around ten minutes later, Jungkook followed, throwing himself on your bed.

“Damn, I’ve missed coming here.”

“Don’t get too comfortable. We’re not kids anymore, I’m a grown girl and you’re a grown boy. This isn’t normal for people our age.”

“Yeah, but we’re soulmates remember?” There it was, that word again. Feeling your cheeks heat up, you gaped at his boldness.

“Shut up!” Picking up a pillow, you brought it down on his face with as much force as possible and he only snickered into it.

“You’ll come around eventually.” Deciding to ignore his last comment, you grabbed your books and sat at your desk. Studying was the best way to get him off your back. Or so you thought.

Feeling him place his chin on your shoulder, his natural scent filled your nose and caused the rest of your face to turn red, butterflies settling in your stomach.

“Help me study.” There was no room for arguing and you allowed him to place his own books on your desk and sit beside you.

You ended up tutoring him on topics he struggled with until the sky turned dark and it was time for him to leave. When he had left and you were closing your books, you discovered a note wedged between the pages of your notebook.

'Call me if something happens tomorrow. I won’t forgive that bastard for upsetting my soulmate.’

Why did this note make a delicate smile spread on your lips and make your heart flutter?

You told yourself it was his concern and nothing more.


EXO Reaction: having a crush on you, but then finding out you are secretly dating another member (request)

II feel like I got too into this whole thing for everyone. I ain’t sorry though, it was fun writing this. 

Sorry for any errors.


Xiumin/Minseok:

“Let’s take a break dude.” Kai huffed.

“What? Another break? We just had one an hour ago.”

“C’mon hyung. I’m tired.” Kai pouted.

“Aish, fine but after this break we have to be serious about getting these moves down so we can break it down for the guys”

“I know.” the younger one groaned.

Xiumin threw himself on the bench, looking at his phone to find a text from y/n telling him to have a nice practice. He smiled to himself. He got butterflies in his stomach just reading her text.

“Hehehehe” Kai giggled as all his attention went to his phone.

“What are you laughing about?” he asked. His question went unanswered because all he was focusing on was the phone.

Curiosity got the best of him, and he went behind Kai to peek over his shoulder.”What are you laughing at, a meme?” but as he took a peek he noticed it was a text conversation.

“Fuck!” Kai jumped up and stepped away from him.He even hid his phone behind his back.

Based on that weird reaction, he really wanted to know who he was texting. “Who were you talking to?”

“No one.”

“No one? You don’t giggle at a text from just no one.”

“Okay, someone but i’m not saying who!” he said showing his phone in his pocket.

“Jongin, how long have we known each other?”

“ike practically half our lives.”

“Exactly, so you can tell me. If you don’t trust m then who can you trust?”

“Well, Kyungsoo, Taemin, Junmyeon- with some stuff, not everything-”

“Whatever! Just tell me who you were texting. the only time i ever saw you look at your phone like that was when you were with krystal.”

Kai’s eyes scattered all over. “Krystal and I are over, so it isn’t her.”

“So who is it?!? Dude you can’t jut not tell me!”

“No! She doesn’t want anyone to know we are dating!”

“So she’s your girlfriend?!?”

“I didn’t say that!” he blurted out nervously.

“You just did!”

“N-no i didn’t!”

They both knew he was caught and Xiumin knew exactly what to do t get the information out. “Oh… Ok, how about this? One piece of information for another. You tell me who you are dating… And I’ll tell you who my crush is.”

Kai’s eyes widened “So you’ll actually tell me who you mystery crush is?!?”

“Yup”

“O-ok, but you’l have to promise to not tell the guys. She and I want to everyone about it later. A-an you can’t let her know that you know that she and I are dating.”

“Deal”

“Ok so on 3 we say the names at the same time?”

“Yeah?

“Ok… 1 “

“2 “

“ 3 “

“Y/n!” Y/n!” they both said at the same time. “What?!? You like her?!?” “What?!? you are dating her?!?”

“Dude, i’ve had a crush on her for months!” Xiumin couldn’t help but be upset.

“And I’ve liked her for a year! She was the reason Krystal and I broke up!” 

“What the fuck?!? Haven’t you noticed that i hit on her every time she comes over?!?”

“No! I just thought you were being friendly! But she is mine now so don’t talk to her like that anymore!”

Hearing him refer to y/n as “his” made his blood boil. “You know what?!? Practice over!” he shouted as he stomped out of the room. He didn’t want to even look at his maknae. He refused to believe that he and y/n were actually dating.

Suho/ Junmyeon:

“Junmyeon, I’m sorry, but i have to end our skype chat early.” Y/n pouted.

“Aw, why?”

“I’m going out with friends tonight and I’m getting picked up in a bit.”

“But we were having so much fun, we have’t talked in forever.” he whined.

“I know, I know, but he is going to be here any second and i want to make sure i am ready.”

Immediately he jumped up in his seat. “He? He who?!? You don’t have any guy friends besides me and EXO!” He didn’t want her to be going out on a date. He always liked y/n, and planned to ask her out at the right time. He hoped he didn’t miss his chance. It’s not a date is it?” he tried to say casually.

“D-date? Pft! N-no! It’s not a date. It’s- It’s- He’s just a frined and he’s picking us all up. Yeah, so i got to go now, bye!” She said before she ended the chat.

“Aish, I hope it isn’t a date…”

“Junmyeon” he heard through the door before Chen poked his head in the room.

“What do you want Jongdae?” He groaned. The last thing he wanted was to talk to anyone else.

“SO uh, bro.” Chen whispered as he closed the door behind him.”You got condoms?” he whispered lower, despite the fact they were the only two in the room.

He slapped his hands over his face. “Bruh, you got to be kidding me! We just had a damn meeting going over the dating rules again.” A leader’s duties never ended, especially in the moments he wanted to be alone. “”And here you are asking me for condoms!”

“C’mon, don’t be such a mom!”

“It’s not a one night stand is it? You know how risky those are!”

“Yeah, i know! That’s why it isn’t a one night stand!”

“Oh so  you’re dating someone then?”

“Yeah, I am! I’m allowed to date!”

“But you got to be careful who you date! You can’t just go out with anyone! They could reveal everything!”

“No shit! I’m not stupid! I’m not dating some random girl okay?”

Suho couldn’t help but scoff. Considering their schedule’s they all didn’t have much contact with many trustworthy people. “And who could you possibly be dating that is that trustworthy?”

“Look it’s Y/n alright! We are all friends with her and we all know that we can trust her about anything! So is this interrogation over already?”

“Y/n? You’re dating y/n?!?” He couldn’t help but feel a sense of betrayal . “How could she not tell me? How long has this been going on? What does she possibly see in him?What does he have that I don’t?”

“Look, you got condoms or not? Y/n;s waiting for me to pick her up!”

“No I don’t” he said through his teeth.

“Fucking waste of my time.” Chen grrumbled as he walked out of the room.

Lay/ Yixing:

Yixing was excited to say the least to be returning from China. Sure it was hard to leave his country again, but coming back to Korea meant coming back to Y/n.

The night before he and her stayed up talking on skype almost the whole night. they both agreed to spend the whole day together when he got back, just the two of them.

Yixing had been harboring a crush on Y/n and did not dare reveal it to anyone. With all his soul, he wanted to tell her, but he was busy enough as is and most of all, the last thing he wanted to do was ruin the friendship they had. What they had now was enough for him. He wasn’t even going to think about considering his confession until his schedule ever lightened up.

-

Today was the day that he was going to hangout with y/n. She knew drill, dressing in the least flashy clothes, but somehow she still looked so beautiful in her drab disguise. 

The morning was filled with breakfast, walking through the mall in sunglasses and a scarf despite being indoors, and blabbing away about anything and everything.

Now it was the late noon and they found themselves through the park. Every so often his hand “accidentally” bumped his hand into hers and enjoyed the tiny bit of physical contact and relished in the fact that she did not seem bothered by it or move away from him.

“So what else happened when i was gone?” he asked to keep the conversation going.

“Well… something did happen… but i don’t know if i can tell you.” she said looking down at the ground to avoid his gaze

“What happened?”

“Well… I came to a realization.” she smiled shyly.

“Realization? What kind of realization?” he let out a chuckle at her cute shyness.

“You know… One of those realizations where you… where you like realize you have feelings for someone.”

Instanly his palms were sweaty. “F-feelings? F-for who?” his heart raced. He felt like his chest was going to explode.

“… I realized I like Chanyeol, so I confessed and it turns out he likes me back and now we are dating!” she squealed.

And just like that, his soul left his body and he felt he was going to drop to the ground. “Ch-ch-chanyeol? You li-like Chanyeol?”

“Yeah! And I just had to tell someone cuz i can’t keep it a secret anymore.’ she beamed.

He stayed quiet, the horrible news sinking into his mind. “So… Chanyeol…”

“Yeah” she smiled brightly. “But don’t tell anyone. Wee still want to keep it a secret… I just couldn’t hide it from you, you are my best friend Yixing.”

“Yeah… Best friend.” he sighed

Baekhyun:

He and Y/n were at her place having yet another on of their infamous movie marathons. He loved their movie marathons. It was never really about watching movies, it was more about them being as stupid as they wanted with each other and not being judged by others.

Right now, the movie Madagascar was playing, but Baekhyun was busy laying on the floor, trying not to laugh as Y/n was placing candies and snacks on his face to make a “food mask”. He had his eyes closed, two gummies atop of them. He giggled as more things were piled on.

“Baek, don’t laugh! You are making all the chips slide off!” Y/n whined.

“I have to!” he tried to say while keeping his face as still as possible.

“Baek, shhh!” she nagged

He tried his best not to move, but when Y/n shoved cheese balls up his nose, he couldn’t just not laugh. “Y/n why?!?” he cackled, removing the food from his face.

“Baek, why did you laugh??” she smirked teasingly.

“You knew that tickled and that I was going to laugh!”

“You should have kept yourself from laughing. I was working on a masterpiece.”

“Y/n, it was impossible not to laugh.”

“It cant be that hard.”

“You think so?” he asked with a smirk. That’s when he pounced. He tickled her sides, making her explode in laughter.

“HA BAEK HAHAHA I’M HA GOING TO HAHA GET YOU BACK!”

“I’d like to see you try!” he said to soon. 

Y/n magically pushed him off and now she was the one on top of him. “Take this!” she shouted as she tickled him.

“HAHAHA NOT COOL!”

He grabbed her hands, not letting them close to his body. With some magic of is own, he got back on top of her.

“HAHAHA BAEK!” she laughed in his ear. her laugh was loud, but it was a beautiful laugh, it was music to his ears. “HAHA I GIVE UP!”

“What?” he asked still staying on top of her. 

“I give up! You win!” she said trying to catch her breath

She looked so pretty looking up at him the way he was. Her eyes in combination with her lips, that was what always caught his attention. He liked y/n for a long tie, but it wasn’t until now that he wanted to do something about it. “I’m sorry, what was that? I can’t heat you.” he teased leaning closer to her.

“I said you-”

His lips stopped hers and he finally kissed her like he always daydreamed about. However, unlike his daydreams, Y/n pushed him off. 

“Baek…” she looked back at him with shock.

“Sorry” he said as he backed away from her a bit. “I’ve just liked you for a while- I just - I just… I don’t know.” he could feel his face burning. It didn’t help that she was looking back at him with such an intense frown.

“Baek, I have a boyfriend.”

“What? Boyfriend?!? When? You never told me!” He could feel his inside churning.

She looked away from him. “I’m dating Sehun. We’ve been secretly dating the last 3 months.” her voice was so soft, she was barely audible.

“Sehun?!? Sehun… Um… I’m just gonna leave now.” his voice cracked. He couldn’t get himself to look in her direction as he walked to the door.

“Baek, you don’t have to leave. We can just-”

“Bye” he said as he closed her door.

“How could I have been so stupid?!?” he thought to himself. “Of course she doesn’t like me! What made me think that she could actually like me?!? I should have known she wouldn’t like me back! Agh, I’m so stupid!”

Chen/ Jongdae:

It was a wonderful night at the dorm. Almost all of the members were over, but so was y/n. Chanyeol had invited her and she actually had time to come by.

She just arrived and was sitting with Chanyeol on the couch. “Hey Y/n.” he smiled. he went over and sat at her other side. “Oh Chanyeol, Kyungsoo is calling you.”

“He is?” Chanyeol raised his brows at him. “I’ll be back y/n this shouldn’t take long.” Chanyeol said as he left the room.

“So you want some popcorn?” he offered. 

“Ha I hadn’t even said hi back yet and you are already offering me snacks?” 

“Well I mean, they were already finished when you got here.”

“Wow, and here I was feeling so special” he laughed

“C’mon, we made some of your favorite stuff, so you should still feel special.” he said leading her to the kitchen.

“Haha, thanks” she giggled shyly. all cute just like every time he threw a compliment at her. “You know, you look extra pretty today… Doing that for a certain someone?” he winked

“Jongdae, what do you mean?” She covered her smile with her hand. “I look like I always do.”

“Nah, I notice you using just a bit more makeup. I don’t know why though. you are just as pretty without it.”

“Jongdae stop, my face is burning.”

“What? I’m just saying the truth!” He tried to give his best smile. At this point he had been subtly flirting with for months and now he was just wanting for her to take him more seriously.

“And I don’t believe you about your face being hot.”

“Trust me, it is!” she insisted.

“Hm.. Let me see.”

He went up t her and cupped her face, making sure to make eye contact. “Oh wow. You’re right, your face is on fire.” he smirked. “You’re hot.”

Suddenly someone cleared their throat and Chen jumped at the sound. He quickly turned around to see D.O and Chanyeol standing at the kitchen doorway.

“Are we interrupting something?” D.O’s eyes switched between Chen and Y/n.

“No, we were just talking.” he said calmly.

“Let’s get started on eating!” Chanyeol declared passing plates and cups to everyone.

They all surrounded the kitchen island and loaded their plates with snacks. Chen was talking to Chanyeol, drowning out the sound of D.O and y/n’s conversation until D.O said something that caught his attention. 

“Babe, can you grab me a spoon?”D.O asked as he pour chips on his plate.

‘Sure!” Y/n said and without hesitation, grabbed a spoon out of the drawer and gave it to him.

“Thanks.” D.O said.

This completely threw Chen off and he cut off Chanyeol’s sentence  with  “Woah, wait! What did you just call her?”

Immediately the froze. “What? I didn’t call her anything!” D.O’s voice was suddenly nervous.

“Yeah you called her “babe”. I just heard you!”

Y/n looked panicked. “No he didn’t. He- he only called me y/n.”

“I’m siding with Jongdae” Chanyeol spoke up. “Kyungsoo, you just called Y/n, babe.”

“So what’s going on here?!?” Chen was tired off all the pointless talk, he wanted to know if he really heard what he just heard, because it couldn’t be really, it just couldn’t.

D.O and Y/n exchanged looks. “We are dating! There! Now you know!”  D.O said

Now Chen really couldn’t believe what he was hearing. “Dating? Since when?!? You guys barely talk to each other! I talk to /n way more that you do!”

““We talk in secret stupid! We didn’t want anyone to know!” D.O snapped.

“We wanted to tell you guys, we really did, but we didn’t want to make things weird when we were all together.” Y/n explained.

“But it’s not like it should matter that we are dating. What y/n and I do is just between y/n and I” D.O added.

Chen clenched his jaw. “You’re right…It doesn’t who is dating who.” he forced himself to say. Seeing y/n so nervous about the whole reveal, he just decided to end the topic. “It’s not like I had a crush on her or anything.” he mumbled to himself.

Chanyeol:

Dorm parties were always fun, especially when y/n was able to show up. With their crazy schedule, he barely had time to see her, but when she was able to see them all, she spent most of her time with him.

Now more than ever he wanted to hang out with her. It had been months since she was over and it was in this time that he realized he hated not having her around. He missed her. He missed her cute face an adorable laugh, and beautiful eyes. He just wanted time to go faster so he could see her again.

“Junmyeon, you did invite y/n right? Cuz if not, i can give her a call.” He said poking his head into his leader’s room.

“Uh… Yeah, we walked a bit, she’s coming don’t worry.” he swirled around in his desk chair to go back to what he was doing on his computer.

“But you sure though?”

“Yes Chanyeol, I’m sure.” he said in his mom tone.

“…I’ll text her just in case.”

“Fine i guess.” Suho huffed.

He sent a text, getting a confirmation right away that she would be getting to the dorm at around 7pm.

He had a good two hours before she would be over, so he took his time getting ready and making sure he looked as good as he could.

7pm rolled by and Y/n arrived right on the dot. He was lucky enough to be the one to open the door for her. He greeted her with a smile an a bear hug. 

“Hi Channie!”

“Finally i get to see you again!”

“Where is everyone else?” she asked looking into the packed dorm.

“You know, around. You want to go to my room?”

“Not yet, let me eat first. Plus, i need to find Junmyeon and talk to him about something.”

“Oh, he’s probably fixing his hair in his room again. Why don’t i get your plate together while you go talk to him?”

“Yeah, ok sure! Thanks Channie!”  she then swirled around and went off in search of Suho, greeting the other members as she cut through the crowd.

“The sooner she finished talking to him, the sooner i spend time with her.” he thought as he put her plate together. he made sure to get  all her favorite snacks . “Ok, now to find her!”

Thankful fr his tall frame, he looked over everyone in the crowd to spot her. “… not here.” he moved down the hall. “excuse me… excuse me… excuse me…” he said as he tried to go down the hall, holding the plate above everyone’s heads.

He went to his roo,m ,hoping she was waiting for him in there. “Nope, not here.”

He made his way back in the hall, and went to Suho’s room. “She is probably still talking to him.”

Without knocking, he opened Suho’s door and walked in on something that stopped his heart. Suho’s lips on Y/n’s, Y/n’s lips on Suho’s, his hands going down her wait. Chanyeol’s mind couldn’t comprehend.

“Thankfully” they jumped away from each other. “It’s not what it looks like!” Suho said right away.

“Not what it looks like?!?” he couldn’t help but be angry.

“Channie, don’t tell anyone please? We’ve been trying to keep this a secret.” Y/n whimpered.

His eyes stung., his vision soon became blurry and a lump formed in his throat. “Secret?” He looked between the two of them and then threw the plate of food on Suho’s night stand before slamming the door shut. He couldn’t handle what he just saw, not them , not the people at the party, not anything.He needed to go outside and get some air and just be alone with his aching heart.

D.O/ Kyungsoo:

They sat on either side of the couch, their legs under the blanket they were sharing.

He never knew what it was about crush that made a person look at the one they liked constantly, but right now he found him self doing just that. Y/n looked so cozy unnder thefluffy blanket, so ccalm as she read the book on her lap. Her hair was so pretty, her lips so perfect, well everything about her was perfect. 

He wanted nothing more than to profess his feelings for her, but each time in the past, he backed out becuase he is too scared of rejection. Right now he felt it would be a god time to finally tell her. They were the only ones inn the dorm and they were just having a nice time in each others company

“Y/n, I need to tell you something.” he said softly.

She looked up at him with those beautiful eyes of hers and he just froze.

“What’s up?”

“I- I - uh”

“Cat got your tongue or what?” she laughed 

Her smile made it even harder to get a word out and there was nothing else to do but to give up again. “Nothing… I just wanted to say that… that i wanted to make your meal for your birthday party next week!”

Her smile grew. “Really?”

“Yeah.”

“Kyungsoo, thank you!” she jumped up from her spot and went up to him to hug him.

1 week later

He had spent the whole day perfecting y/n’s favorite meal, enough for at least he, the rest of EXO, and y/n of course. Baking the cake was probably the easiest part of the whole day. He just wanted everything to go according to plan. He was going to actually confess to y/n. Plan A was that she was going to love the food, spend most of the night with him like she always does when she is over, enjoy her cake, then he was going to take her onto the roof, look out on the city and confess in the middle of their deep conversation.

However, things weren’t going exactly how he expected. throughout the party, y/v was with everyone else, mostly Baekhyun. He was really stealing her attention with his stupid antics. Only every so often would she talk to Kyungsoo. It sucked he didn’t talk to her as much as he wanted, but she looked like she was having fun, so that was what mattered. Also he used the time to go over exactly what he was going to say to her

“Guys, guys… Hey everyone!” Suho practically shouted. “Time for cake!”

“Cake!” Baekhyun cheered. he grabbed y/n’s hand and they both ran into the kitchen laughing with everyone else.

D.O stood by his cake with pride. He loved seeing y/n’s shocked face when she saw her cake. 

“Kyungsoo, this is amazing! Thank you!” she said, giving him a peck on the cheek.

He could feel himself melt but he held himself together as Y/n blew out her candles. 

It was now it was almost time that he was about to pull her to the side and reveal her feelings.

“Yay!” everyone cheered as they attacked the cake. 

“Guys! Guys!” Baekhyun stopped everyone just asthey were about to eat.

“What could he possibly want to say?” D.O thought.

Baekhyun, cleared his throat. “Uh… um” he walked over to Y/n  “So y/n and i have something to say.’ that’s when D.O saw Baekhyun intertwine his finger’s with y/n’s “…We’ve been dating for two months already!” 

“What?!?” the word just jumped out of him. Luckily for him, his rage came out as shock and it only made Y/n smile shyly. 

“We didn’t want to jinx anything by telling everyone right away, so we dated in secret first to see if we could last.” she explained.

D.O could feel his insides dropping to the floor. He felt light headed noting made sense. all he could do was slap a fake smile on his face as everyone cheered.

Kai/ Jongin:

It was finally time for the lunch break during dance practice when the beautiful Y/n appeared.

“Hey guys!’‘ She beamed as they all crowded around her in excitement.

Y/n was originally Tao’s best friend, eventually befriending them all. With Tao not apart of the group anymore, Y/n mostly hung out with the remaining members of EXO-M. So obviously she greeted Lay, Xiumin, and Chen with a hug, then hugging a few of the other members she was a bit more close to. 

Kai held himself back like he always did. He just stayed behind D.O and gave her a shy wave like some idiot. 

Y/n wasn’t by often. She had her own friends, her own life, plus their own schedules were crazy. He and Y/n didn’t really talk much, they weren’t too close. He would try to talk to her and she would try to talk to him, but in the few time they did interact, he would get tongue tied and come off as word, but not a good weird like Baekhyun or Chen. But he knew alot about her from what the other members have said about her and from eavesdropping on her conversations with the other members. He might not have been close to her (because of his own fault), but he had a really big crush on her and he couldn’t get past it.

“Guys, I haven’t seen you all in forever!” he smiled that perfect smile that always made his heart skip a beat.

“So i have some news to tell you guys, but I won’t tell you guys until after I buy you all lunch!” she offered.

“Y/n, no, you don’t have to buy us all lunch.” Lay said walking up to her. 

“Yeah, you don’t have to” they all said.

Yixing, guys, it’s fine. I am just in a really good mood today, so let me get you all something from that new cafe around the corner. How does that sound? Cuz I’m not taking no for an answer.” she said through her smile.

“Yay!” they all cheered awkwardly.

“So who wants to come with me and help me carry everything?” Finally a chance for him to not be a coward and actually talk to her. 

“I will.” “I will!” he and Lay said at the same time.

They both looked at each other. “Jongin, you don’t have to. You practiced really hard today so you should have a nice rest.”

‘Nah Yixing, I’m not tired at all. Plus, you just got back a few days ago , you should rest instead.”

“No, it’s okay-”

“Yixing, don’t worry about it. Jongin, made a good point, just sit down and rest.” Y/n said.

Lay sat back down.

“Oh shit! What did i just make myself do?!?” he thought. “Now I am going to be alone iwth her for like 15 minutes! What am i going to say?!?” he panicked as they walked out of the studio.

“So how have you been?” he asked first. “We haven’t seen you in a while.”

“Oh, you know, here and there, skyping Tao, fangirling over him and you guys constantly.” 

He let out a nervous chuckle. “ And how is Tao?”

“He’s good. He misses you guys.” She said as she opened the door to the cafe.

“Upon entering the building, he lifted up his face mask, making a sad attempts to keep people from recognizing him in the crowded area and pushed his hair into his beanie.

Y/n learned a thing or to about the unspoken rules, so she knew that they wouldn’t be talking while they were in the cafe. 

The orders didn’t take long. And they were son walking out with arm fulls of food.

“So I heard you and Krystal broke up… How are you taking it?” Y/n said in a soft voice.

He only shrugged. “Things weren’t working out, schedules and all that.” that was only partially the reason. The other reason was his crush for y/n. He felt bad that his crush kept him from focusing on Krystal. It didn’t seem fair to date someone if his whole heart wasn’t in it. 

“Ah, sorry to hear that.”

“Eh, its alright, I kinda moved on. I like someone else now.” Instantly he shut his mouth. “Did I really just say that?!?” he thought.

“Well that’s good! Who do you like? Do I know her?!?” she asked eagerly.

He just shook is head shyly.

“Are you goinng to confess to her?”

Again he shook his head.

“Jongin, you should! You’re a catch!”

He could feel his face burning.

“You should tell her… You know I had a huge crush on someone and I finally confessed.”

He stopped walking, “What?”

She stopped with him, a huge smile on her face. “And we are dating right now!” she squealed

“Wa? Who are you dating? Do we knnow him?”

She came cup close. “Yixing!” she whispered.

“Yixing?”

“Yeah! That’s why I dropped by! We are going to tell everyone, but act surprised when we announce it!”

“Y-yeah, no problem.” he mumbled

“Thanks! And, take my advice Jongin. It might work out of you put yoursefl out there.”

“…Yeah …” He fake smiled. “…Yeah…. Should have thought about doinng that sooner.” he said to himself.

Sehun:

“So that’s what I want to do with my life I guess…” Y/n concluded.

“Well that’s interesting. Knowing you, I am sure you will accomplish all that.” he smiled genuinely. 

He looked over to the end of his bed where Y/n sat. Y/n was a great person, a great friend. He was sick and the second she found out, Y/n rushed over to take care of him. She was a great friend, but was someone that he wanted as more than a friend. Lately she had been over at the dorm alot more often and her coming over just to look after him, he couldn’t help but feel maybe she had similar feelings for him. 

“But I’ve been talking way too much. You talk Sehun.”

“I don’t mind. I like hearing you talk.” He was too sick to talk in a full voice.

“You’re too nice” she giggled.

He shrugged like it was no big deal. “Yeah, I get that alot.” 

“And you’re humble too.” she added sarcastically.

“So what is your type of guy?” he asked “randomly.

“What? Why are you asking me that?” her eyes shifted all over.

“I don’t know, just to keep the conversation going.”

“Well, what is your type?”

““I asked you first.”

“And I asked you second!” 

He let out a chuckle, smitten by her childishness. “I can’t say I have a real type.”

“Or are you really not interesting in girls?” she asked teasingly. 

“Hey, I said my type is no type, so now you tell me your’e type.”

“No”

“C’mon! Now can you tell a sick person no?”

“…I … Well I can’t really have a type of i am already dating.”

“Wait what?”

“Cu i feel “what is your type” is a question you ask a single person that is looking for someone to date… I am not looking for someone to date.”

“But who are you dating!?!? When did you start dating someone?!?”

“Don’t freak out okay? I am only going to tell you this cuz you are my best friend… and i can;t keep it in anymore… but don’t tell anyone!”

Y/n took his silence ans his intense eye contact s a yes. “ So about a few weeks ago… Xiumin confessed to me and I have liked him forever and I said yes and we’ve been dating ever since!” she squealed.

“Xiumin?!?” he coughed.

“Yeah! He’s so hot and mature, but also cute and-” she babbled on and on as she gushed over his hyung. Every word was a stab to his heart and all he could do was sit back and let her talk, sad that she was smiling about someone that wasn’t him.
