take this burden - part 19

[ ends of the earth - lord huron ]

They woke to Rou flinging the door open and loudly informing them that there were pancakes downstairs.


‘Jesus, Rou, what if we’d been naked?’


‘Absolutely nothing.’


‘What?’


She walked off.


‘Should I be offended?’ He Tian asked.


‘That’s a safe bet.’


They’d shifted slightly as they slept.


Somehow, Felix had acquired the majority of the blanket.


When He Tian didn’t get out of the bed, Mo Guan Shan climbed over him.


He Tian followed him to the bathroom.


Mo Guan Shan said something unintelligible, his mouth full of toothpaste.


‘…what?’


Mo Guan Shan spit.


‘Did you bring a toothbrush?’


‘No, I completely spaced. I’m fine until we get home.’


‘You can use mine if you want.’


‘Isn’t that kind of…gross?’


‘Compared to what? Spending the day with un-brushed teeth?’


He Tian had no response.


He took the toothbrush when Mo Guan Shan offered it to him.


Mo Guan Shan sat on the edge of the tub while he cleaned his teeth.


‘Sorry about last night.’


He Tian glanced at him out of the corner of his eye.


‘What do you mean?’


‘I try not to drink that much on a regular basis. I hope I wasn’t too bad.’


‘What’s the last thing you remember?’ He Tian asked warily.


‘Taking a shower.’


He Tian sighed in intense relief.


‘Shit, did I do something stupid?’ Mo Guan Shan asked.


‘Nope, you just went to sleep.’


‘Are you lying?’


‘Only a little.’


‘We didn't…’


‘No. I like to think that you’d remember that.’


‘I didn’t mean it like-’


‘I know, I’m kidding.’


He Tian spit out the toothpaste and rinsed his mouth out


‘So what’s the plan?’


‘I’m going to get some more of my stuff packed up and get Felix ready. We can head out after breakfast.’


‘Is there anything else you want to do while we’re here? Visit friends?’


Mo Guan Shan considered that for a moment before shaking his head.


‘I’d rather just go home and get settled in.’


He Tian followed him out of the bathroom to help him pack.


‘Home it is, then.’


They ate breakfast and said their goodbyes.


He Tian was surprised when each member of the family hugged him warmly.


‘Come back and visit soon.’ Mo Guan Shan’s mom told them firmly.


‘We will.’ Mo Guan promised.


He Tian tried not to smile.


We, huh?


Mo Guan Shan loaded Felix into the car in his carrier.


He was nothing but a fluffy, ginger, ball of anger and claws.


Mo Guan Shan didn’t ask for the keys this time either.


He relaxed with every mile He Tian put between their car and the city.

‘Sorry about telling my mom that we’re together. She just looked so happy…’


‘It’s ok, really. She wants to know that you’re safe and taken care of. It’s understandable.’


Mo Guan Shan nodded.


‘Yeah, i suppose so. You’re not mad though?’


‘Not at all. Why would I be?’


‘Well…you haven’t been in a relationship for thirteen years and I just barge in and tell my parents that you’re my boyfriend. I don’t imagine anyone would like that.’


‘It doesn’t bother me.’ He Tian assured him.


‘Well, thank you.’


‘Any time.’


The redhead rolled his eyes with a small smile.


‘Really? Even Christmas?’


‘Sure.’


‘I…can’t tell if you’re kidding.’


‘I’m not. They seem really nice. I liked them a lot.’


‘Just be careful. They might get attached and we’ll have to get married.’ He teased.


He Tian laughed.


‘I can think of worse fates.’


There was a long pause.


‘I’m going to tell Jian Yi you said that.’


‘Oh lord, please don’t.’


They both smiled.


‘You seem like you’re feeling better.’ He Tian observed.’


‘I am.’ Mo Guan Shan admitted.


‘I’m glad.’


They spent the next few hours in silence, listening to music, lost in thought.


Mo Guan Shan broke the silence.


‘So, what’s up with them? Jian Yi and Zhan Zhengxi.’


‘What do you mean?’


‘Are they planning on getting married or anything? You said they’d been together for, like, a decade.’


‘Ok, I’m going to tell you something, but if you tell Jian Yi I will murder you.’


‘Jesus, I’m not sure if I even want to know now.’


‘Zhengxi has been planning to propose for over two years but hasn’t come up with the right way to do it.’


‘It’s not like he’s going to say no… right?’


‘Absolutely not. Zhengxi just feels like he has to make it special somehow, after all they’ve been through.’


‘Like what?’ Mo Guan Shan asked.


He Tian winced, realizing he’d said too much.


‘I’m…going to have to let Jian Yi tell you about that. I wouldn’t know about any of it if I hadn’t been around for it.’


‘Are you really going to build it up like that and not tell me?’


He Tian sighed.


He never really talked to anyone so he wasn’t used to censoring himself or keeping secrets.


‘You have to PROMISE me you won’t say anything. Ever.’


‘I promise.’


He Tian hesitated.


‘Zhengxi cheated on him a few years ago.’


‘Whoa.’


‘It wasn’t a huge thing, he didn’t sleep with her or anything-’


‘Her?’ Mo Guan Shan interrupted.


‘Yeah, that was the issue. Jian Yi is a remarkably understanding, forgiving person. But after so many years of Zhengxi telling him he was straight, it was pretty brutal.’


‘I can imagine.’


‘What ended up happening?’


‘Zhengxi stayed with me for almost three months. The girl, she was a friend of theirs, went to Jian Yi taking full responsibility. She was going through her own shit with some guy and said it was entirely her fault and Zhengxi had turned her down.’


‘And Jian Yi forgave him?’


‘Eventually, yeah. He said they should start fresh and let it go.’


‘What happened with the girl?’


‘She quit her job at The Wolf and none of us have heard from her since.’


‘What’s The Wolf?’


He Tian chuckled.


‘That’s my club. The Black Wolf.’


‘Oh…I’m sorry. I feel like I should know that.’


‘I doubt anyone has said the name. Everyone typically just says He Tian’s place.


‘It’s weird, I just realized I’ve never heard you say your own name before.’


He Tian thought about that.


‘I guess I don’t really say my name often. Does anyone?’


‘Probably not.’


‘You do it.’


‘Say your name?’


‘No, yours.’


‘…Mo Guan Shan.’


‘Ok, now mine.’


‘You want me to say your name?’


He Tian flushed.


‘Well, not now that you’ve made it weird.’


Mo Guan Shan laughed softly.


‘He Tian.’


The man in question smiled, his face still bright red.


‘Your turn.’


He Tian tried to clear his head.


‘Mo Guan Shan.’


‘I like your voice.’


‘Really?’


‘Really.’ Mo Guan Shan assured him.


‘No one’s ever told me that.’


‘Something tells me there’s a lot of nice things about you that no one’s ever told you about.’


‘Should I be offended by that?’


‘No. I can tell you what I like about you so far, if you want.’


‘You really don’t have to do that.’ He Tian said, tightening his hands on the steering wheel.’


‘But I really want to.’


‘Ok…’ He was expecting a few generic compliments.


‘I like the way your eyes sparkle when you smile.’


‘…thank you.’


‘And the way you squeeze my hand when you laugh.’


He Tian had no idea how to respond to these facts.


‘And the way you offer me a cigarette when you don’t want to smoke alone.’


‘…’


‘And the way you look away when you’re embarrassed.’


‘I-’


‘And the way you try not to smile when you’re lying.’


Shit.


‘When-’


‘And the way you turn someone away when they’re clearly drunk and being an idiot.’


‘…’


‘The way you’ll sleep on the floor because someone selfishly asks you to stay the night.’


‘Oh…um-’


‘You. I like you. I really, really, do.’


‘You shouldn’t.’ He Tian whispered.


‘Why not?’ Mo Guan Shan asked, defiant.


‘I have… a lot of baggage.’


‘I don’t care.’


‘You don’t understand.’


‘You’ve handled everything I’ve thrown at you so far.’


‘I guess…’


‘Let me do that for you.’


‘It’s different.’


‘I. Don’t. Care.’


‘But-’


He Tian, you drove me home. I could have stayed there. But I didn’t.’


‘Why didn’t you?’ He Tian asked.


‘If I don’t stick around and, at least, try to figure all this out, I’d hate myself.


‘You’re going to hate me, Mo Guan Shan.’


‘Why don’t you let me figure that out for myself.’


‘I’m not going to-’


‘I’m not asking you to fuck me.’


‘What are you asking me for?’ He Tian asked, honestly confused.


‘Give me a chance. Baggage and all.’


‘Do you want me to be your…’


‘I just want you to be with me while I sleep. Even if it’s on the floor.’


Mo Guan Shan’s confident words didn’t match the way his voice shook.


‘I can do that.’


‘Yeah?’


‘Yeah.’

day 12!! halfway there to christmas!!! enjoy!

Stuart - Jingle Bell Rock

One of the advantages to working at such a fun workplace like the Googleplex was the all the parties. The Christmas party, in (Y/N)’s opinion, was by far the most fun one. So much positive energy filled the building and everyone was happy. Christmas songs played over the speakers, and both punny and traditional decorations were hung randomly around.
(Y/N) dragged her boyfriend, Stuart, down the stairs excitedly. It was his very first Christmas party and Google, and all (Y/N) wanted was to make it memorable for him.
“So, just asking, where are we going?” He asked from behind his girlfriend.
“Just down to the snack bar. Their cookies are amazing,” She gushed.
“At nine in the morning?” He asked with a smirk.
“I don’t care. It’s Christmas!” She replied with grin, making Stuart laugh at her adorable-ness. She had never failed to amaze him ever since the day they met shortly after he had won the big internship. (Y/N) had started working there as an assistant and eventually moved up, meeting Stuart in the process.
“Whatever you say,” He said.
The previous song ended, and Jingle Bell Rock came on over the speakers. Stuart noticed how (Y/N) perked up even more at the song, as it was one of her favorite Christmas songs. As they made their way down to the snack bar, (Y/N) sang along softly and almost unnoticeably. Stuart couldn’t resist.
What a bright time, it’s the right time, to rock the night away..” He sang, a little off key, but it made (Y/N) smile anyways.
Jingle bell time is a swell time,” (Y/N) made air drum motions, “to go ridin’ in a one horse sleigh!
Stuart laughed, letting himself loose as (Y/N) continued singing.
Mix and a-mingle and a jinglin’ feet,” They sang together. Stuart grabbed (Y/N)’s hands and waved them around in some goofy dance. “That’s the jingle bell, that’s the jingle bell, that’s the jingle bell rock!”
Neha popped up beside them as the song ended. “Stew is smiling? What is this? Another dimension or something? Did we finally master portalling?” She joked with a straight face.
“Ha-ha. I’m having fun,” He defended himself, wrapping an arm around his girlfriend. Neha cooed.
“I don’t know how you do it, (Y/N), but you somehow make him smile. Congratulatons,” She smiled warmly, and walked away. (Y/N) blushed.
“She’s right, you know,” Stuart added truthfully, looking at (Y/N) directly, “you make me happy. So, so very happy.”
(Y/N) blushed even more. “Do I say thank you?”
“No, you say ‘you’re welcome’. I should be the one thanking you.”
(Y/N) giggled. “Well, thank you AND you’re welcome. How’s that?” She laughed. “Man, that song is stuck in my head now.” She breathed. “Jingle bell, jingle bell…
“Hey! Don’t get it stuck in mine!” Stuart exclaimed.

You had to work the very next day and once Sam was back to working the two of you were back to seeing each other at night for a quick dinner and hangout or on the weekends when your schedules matched up. Lucky for you, you were off this Saturday afternoon and you and Sam made plans to attend a bonfire that night.

You had never been to a bonfire before so when Sam suggested you go, you were more than happy. He mentioned that a few of his old college buddies would be attending, along with his brother and some of Dean’s old college friends. Sam even gave you the okay to invite some friends of your own, as it was meant to be a big party.

You were working all day Friday so you planned to sleep Saturday morning as much as possible and then meet Sam at his house to carpool with him and Dean to the bonfire. You decided you would drive, as there was going to be alcohol there and since neither Sam nor Dean had to work the next day, you figured they might like to engage in some drinking.

“Knock.Knock.” You said as you entered your friend’s dorm room that he shared with Charles Lee. “Wait, Charles, are you decent?”

“It was one time, Y/n!” Charles whined and you rolled your eyes. You looked at him to see him sitting, putting his shoes on, with a suitcase next to him.

“Thank God, he’s leaving.” You thought to yourself.

“Yes, one time that will scar me forever.” You deadpanned, and looked across the room to see your friend, Aaron, laying on his bed, typing away at his computer.

“Psh, whatever, you know you liked it.” Charles winked at you and you shivered.

Disgusting.

“Liked what? I’m sorry, everything was just too small to see.” You shot back. Charles opened and closed his mouth trying to find a come back for your statement.

You saw Aaron smile from out the corner of your eye.

Anyways but can you imagine Alec’s first real Christmas/New Years? His parents probably never gave them time to celebrate it and as a kid he’d always look out of his window and look at all the decorations on people’s houses and mundanes being so excited and so happy about some dumb little holiday, and he’d never understand that, but deep down he knew he’d do anything to be able to have so much life inside of him and be excited about such pointless things.

And then, Magnus came along. Magnus who celebrated every single holiday ever, including holidays such as fucking Columbus Day (“why did you throw a random party again Magnus?” “*GASP* it is not random at all Alexander, it is for Columbus Day! The most important day of the year!!”)

And Magnus’s biggest goal was to get Alec as excited for Christmas as he was. So he dragged him into every single store in the city, made him look at every single tree, every single ornament, every single god damn Santa hat (on November 2nd, i might add).

So Alec was so done with shopping, he was sure that when Christmas came along, he’d just hate it. Except when he went to Magnus’s place on a windy day at the end of November, exhausted after an unfortunate demon hunt, just wanting to take a hot bath and cuddle with his boyfriend, and he opened the door to an actual wonderland.

There was a big silver tree in the middle of the living room with all the ornaments on it that Alec remembered Magnus forcing him to pick, the entire place was a big splash of gold and green and red, it smelled like gingerbread and like Magnus and like home and Alec felt like he was in a fairy tail. There was some dumb old Christmas song playing in the background and big “ALEC” and “MAGNUS” lights under the tree, and then there was Magnus cursing in the kitchen with a Santa hat on because the cookie tray burned his fingers.

Alec came up to Magnus and hugged him from behind, inhaling the even stronger smell of gingerbread that was coming from him. And maybe, just maybe, Magnus could make him feel just as excited as those mundanes are every year because Magnus had so much life inside of him, that he was oh so willing to share with Alec.

Begin Again

A/N: This fic is based off the song Begin Again by Taylor Swift :-) Let me know what you think!!

Took a deep breath in the mirror
He didn’t like it when I wore high heels
But I do
Turn the lock and put my headphones on
He always said he didn’t get this song
But I do, I do 

You smoothed your dress out and checked yourself in the mirror.

“Sweetie, that’s like the 14th outfit you’ve tried on” Your best friend and basically big sister, Penelope told you. “I thought the first one looked fantastic!”

You sighed to yourself. This was the first date you’ve been on since you and you boyfriend of 3 years had broken up nearly 8 months ago. Penelope had tried to set you up multiple times, but you just hadn’t felt up to it – until now. You finally agreed to a blind date with her co-worker, Spencer.

“I’m sorry it’s just… been a long time” you smiled weakly.

The break up you had with your ex-boyfriend was incredibly bitter – he had been acting weird for quite some time and one of your girlfriends suggested the idea that he might be proposing. Totally expecting a proposal, one day you walked in on him with another woman. You had a hard time recovering from that one.

Penelope stood up and took your hand “Oh you sweet, beautiful flower, you’re going to have a blast! Spencer is a great guy – to be honest, I have always thought you two would be really great together!”

You gave her a tight embrace and thanked her as she left for you to finish getting ready. After slipping on a pair of heels, and checking your appearance just one more time, you grabbed your purse and headed out the door.

Walked in expecting you’d be late
But you got here early and you stand and wave
I walk to you
You pull my chair out and help me in
And you don’t know how nice that is
But I do

You walked into the restaurant Penelope told you to go to and walked up to the hostess.

“Hello, I’m here for a party of 2 for Reid?” you nervously tapped on the table the hostess stood behind.

After a few moments of looking on a computer screen, she found the reservation. “Oh yes, here is it – it looks like the Mr. Reid is already here, so I’ll take you to your table” she gave a bright smile as she led you to your table.

You were already about 10 minutes early, but he was already here? Your ex-boyfriend was a habitually late person so you had just assumed… you shook your head. You needed to quit comparing him to Spencer.

And that’s when you saw him.

He was an incredibly attractive man, to say the least. He pushed one of his brown, messy curls behind his ear and he stood up to wave to you. Penelope decided to not show either of you pictures of each other or any other information, just names to “make things more mysterious” as she would say

“Hi, I’m Spencer” he smiled as took your coat and pulled your chair out. Well, he was already making a great impression.

“I’m Y/N” you smiled back as you sat down.

And so began the best first date you had ever been on. You learned that he was very smart – like, the smartest person you had ever met. You gawked at his impressive amount of credentials and accomplishments while he laughed at some funny work stories you told. It was surprisingly nice… and you understood what Penelope meant when she thought that you two would click. You both had a wide knowledge of random facts that you liked ranting about and you quickly found out your mutual love for Dr. Who.

And you throw your head back laughing like a little kid
I think it’s strange that you think I’m funny ‘cause he never did
I’ve been spending the last eight months
Thinking all love ever does is break and burn and end
But on a Wednesday in a cafe I watched it begin again 

After eating your dinners and some more chatting the conversation turned and you began talking about the woman that set this all up - Penelope.

“So, how do you know Penelope?” Spencer asked as he took a bite of his spaghetti.

You smiled at the memory of when you and P met. “Penelope and I met when we were little – when her parents died, she lived with us for a little bit until she went off to CalTech and well… you know the rest of that story. She’s like the big sister I never had”

“That’s so neat that you two have known each other for so long! She’s something else, isn’t she?” Spencer chuckled.

Suddenly you remembered a funny memory with Penelope. “I remember one time when we were little, we decided it would be a fun idea to put up a tent in my backyard and sleep in it. So, after a couple hours of telling each other the scariest campfire stories we could think of, we both tried to fall asleep in our sleeping bags, when all of a sudden we heard a weird noise. She went out there with a flashlight, and she swung at the first object she saw – which so happened to be my dad seeing if we were still okay to sleep out there all night. It’s safe to say we never camped again!”

You let out a big laugh, which Spencer immediately returned. You loved the way he laughed, his wide smile shining.

You liked Spencer. He was so different than anyone you had ever been with. You couldn’t believe Penelope didn’t set you guys up earlier.

Your hatred for all men and love was beginning to dissipate. Just because one guy had screwed you over and was a dick, didn’t mean all men were the same. You forgot how nice it was to connect with someone. You forgot how fun first dates were.

And we walked down the block to my car and I almost brought him up
But you start to talk about the movies that your family watches
Every single Christmas and I want to talk about that
And for the first time what’s past is past 

After you ate your dessert and the bill was paid, he walked you out to your car. Your arm wrapped around his, you began thinking about your ex-boyfriend. You felt like you should tell him what had happened and how you were still repairing yourself. Right as you were about to bring it up, Spencer began rambling about his childhood.

“Yeah, my mom and I didn’t watch a lot of movies… she would always read to me on Christmas night, mostly Renaissance Literature” Spencer smiled at the thought of his mother.

You smiled at his sweet memories with his mother. You decided not to bring up your ex – what were you thinking? It was time to move on. To leave his sorry ass in the past.

You turned to him and smiled “Thank you for everything tonight… I had a really good time”

He looked into your eyes and said “Me too… do you think we could um… do this again sometime?” he rubbed his hands nervously together.

“Absolutely” you said as you leaned into each other for a long, sweet kiss.

But on a Wednesday in a cafe I watched it begin again

Day 4 - Sweaters / Music

New boyfriends Keith and Lance exchange gifts. Non-space AU.


-Lance’s house-

Christmas carols play softly from the radio in the background. Lance is sat on the floor, his back resting against the couch. His cat, Blue, snoozes next to his thigh. In his hands he holds knitting needles. Spools of yarn in garish primary colors lay spilling on his legs. He hums softly along with the music.


-Keith’s apartment-

Keith is sat hunched at his computer, resting his chin in one hand thoughtfully. His other hand clicks about furiously. His cat, Red, paws along in the space between the monitor and the keyboard. He’s making a mixtape. Well it’s a CD, which itself is vintage as hell. The only reason he isn’t actually using a cassette tape is that he doesn’t think Lance actually owns a cassette player. Or if anyone besides Keith does, for that matter.

Lance is really into cheesy pop songs. Keith normally hates them, and in turn Lance hates the stuff Keith is into. But tomorrow will be their first Christmas together, as in after they’ve started dating, and Keith can’t think of a more apt present for his cheesy boyfriend than a compilation of cheesy classic romantic holiday numbers that also serve to express how Keith feels about Lance. Or whatever. Hunk helped him think of it okay. He may or may not be blushing as he thinks of songs to include, and about the exact nature of his feelings.

It’s Lance, so of course the first song Keith puts on the CD for his giant memelord boyfriend is “Never Gonna Give You Up.” But the rest of it is a genuine present, with some of Lance’s favorites like “All I want for Christmas is You.” As an ode to the days in which Lance was too oblivious to notice his pining, Keith adds “Last Christmas.”


-Lance’s house-

“Well go on. Open it!”

Hesitant, Keith tears open the sparkly red wrapping paper of the present Lance just shoved at him. He isn’t sure he wants to see what is either something so sappy he’ll blush uncontrollably, or a cringey joke. Of course because it’s Lance, it’s both. Keith pulls out an ugly Christmas sweater, except it’s not so ugly. It’s a pleasant red—not gaudy but not dull—with a standard snowflakes pattern on the sleeves and “dat boi” written on the front in huge white letters. Somehow Lance has managed to turn the romantic gesture of knitting him a sweater into a meme. Keith rolls his eyes, refusing to admit he’s impressed.

Lance reaches behind him and pulls out another sweater. This one has the same sleeve pattern but it’s blue and says “oh shit waddup” in similar white lettering on the front. “So we’re matching,” he explains, wiggling his eyebrows. He pulls on the sweater and winks at Keith.

“Oh my god you’re so embarrassing,” Keith groans, but a laugh escapes him. He pulls the sweater over his head and hands Lance the CD, a bow taped to the cover.

Lance’s eyes widen, and his lips turn into a grin. “You made me a mixtape?” He jumps up and puts the CD into his laptop, hitting play. The instant he realizes he’s been rickrolled, he whirls around. “Keith!” he cries, indignant.

Keith laughs heartily; this was worth it. “Just hit next,” he relents. Lance does, and Mariah Carey’s soulful vocals fill the room.

“Aww, babe,” Lance smiles softly. He walks over and pulls Keith to his feet. “You can’t not dance with me.” He guides Keith’s hand to his shoulder and puts his own hand on Keith’s waist. He intertwines the fingers of their free hands and begins to sway in place. Keith starts to protest, something about not knowing how to dance. Lance silences him with a kiss, slow and deep. By the time they pull apart, Keith is following Lance’ lead.

“Merry Christmas,” Keith whispers into the space between them.

“Merry Christmas, Keith.”

The song changes. They keep dancing.

Protective Problems (Sugg Sibling Request)

(Day 10 and we’re back with another imagine! Today you’re Joe and Zoe’s little sister! Enjoy!) “Joe just get down here” You call to your older brother who was currently editing in the filming room of Zoe and Alfie’s house.
You and your brother Joe were staying at your eldest sister Zoe’s house for a while as Christmas was coming up and they all had videos they wanted to film for the festive season.
“What is it?” He frowns, jogging down the stairs to where Alfie and Zoe were already sat in the lounge.
Once he is finally seated, you stand in front of them, “I have a boyfriend” You admit.
All of them look at you for a moment, shocked, surprised, annoyed, protective. You couldn’t really tell.
“Well what’s his name?” Zoe asks, and you can tell evidently that she’s happy for you.
“It’s Danny” You comment.
Joe sat there with a blunt look on his face, not agreeing already. Protective brother. And Alfie, he was just as bad. He had become like a brother to you over the years he had dated your sister and he obviously felt the same as Joe at this point.
“How long have you been dating him then?” Joe questions.
“About two months now. But I didn’t want to say anything if I knew nothing was going to happen” You reply.
Joe nods simply.
He was two years older than you and all three of you had been inseparable growing up. You still were. You even lived with Joe still.
“How did I not know about this?” He looks up at you.
“Joe she’s already told you” Zoe points out, “Don’t be so rude”
Joe looks down.
“Why don’t you invite him round for dinner tomorrow (y/n)? We’ll order some pizzas and stuff” Zoe suggests, smiling to make you at least feel a little more comfortable.
“Yeah sure I’ll ask him. He can get the train down” You nod.
“Perfect” Zoe grins, jumping up, “Are we ready to film then?”
“Sure” You nod and finally feel only slightly relaxed considering Joe and Alfie still were sat on the couch disapprovingly.
~~~The Next Day~~~
“Yeah no problem I’m on my way now” You smile down the phone, “Bye”
“Is his train in now?” Alfie asks you as you slip on your shoes.
“Yeah I’ll go pick him up now” You nod, “I won’t be long”
You head outside and hop into your car, driving to the train station with new found nerves. What would they think of him?
Your mind suddenly flashed to you and Joe when you were younger. Zoe was upstairs with her friends talking about some new boy at the school and you and Joe were downstairs playing video games. He had told you that day that he loved that you didn’t care about boys. That’s how it had always been. Zoe was off being a teenager with her friends and you and Joe would be out every day to explore the landscapes around you. You instantly felt guilty. Like you were betraying that promise to your brother. Like you had changed from who you were. Especially after his reaction yesterday. You didn’t want Danny to come between you and Joe. But was that what was really going to happen?
It wasn’t long until you pulled back onto the driveway of the Zalfie house, now with a passenger.
Danny and you walk to the door that Zoe opens happily.
“Hiya! You must be Danny?” She grins, “I’m Zoe”
He seems to relax instantly, “Its great to meet you”
“Aw you too! Come on in” She gestures and closes the door behind you, squeezing your arm quickly in reassurance, “The boys are through here”
She leads him through the festive house to where the boys are in the lounge. Both alert.
“Danny this is my brother Joe and that’s Zoe’s boyfriend Alfie” You explain and both of them stand.
“Nice to meet you” Alfie smiles politely, shaking his hand.
“You too” Danny nods, turning to your brother, “And Joe was it?”
“Yeah,” Joe replies simply, shaking his hand with a strong grip.
“The pizzas are already here so tuck in guys”
All of you sit down to eat, Danny next to you and Joe round the other side of the couch far enough away to glare daggers at your boyfriend at any opportunity. Alfie seems to lighten up. He asks him questions. He’s interested in Danny’s filming passion. He even starts talking to him about YouTube. Zoe is simply herself. She keeps him feeling at home, makes sure he has a drink and has eaten enough just like a proper host. You were thankful for that. Though Joe kept quiet. He answered polite questions with blunt responses and even made you feel uncomfortable, let alone Danny.
“Yeah sure come and have a look” Alfie smiles and him, Zoe and Danny all head off to show your boyfriend their filming equipment.
You proceed to tidy away the pizza boxes and napkins, taking them to the bin without speaking to Joe.
“So,” He follows you into the kitchen, “He seems nice”
“Oh piss off Joe. Don’t act like that” You snap.
“Act like what? I said he seems nice!” He comments nonchalantly.
“You’ve been rude this entire time! You’re just sat there with a sour face on you like a kid that didn’t get what they wanted for Christmas. It’s petty and stupid. If you don’t like him then just admit it”
“I’ve only just met the guy, I can’t just be best friends with him straight away!” He retorts.
“Joe I was fucking terrified about Danny meeting you guys. I had no idea how you’d react. But I certainly didn’t think you’d be like this. You’re my brother, you’re my best friend. And you could at least be polite enough to a guy I actually really like. And who likes me back” You admit, suddenly feeling like your emotions are just pouring out.
Now he doesn’t know how to respond. His little sister had tears in her eyes all because of how he had acted. It wasn’t meant to be like that. Usually it was someone else that made her upset and he would be there to wipe the tears from her eyes. Or the other way round. She was usually the braver one. And now, when she had finally been brave enough to introduce them to her boyfriend, he’d ruined it all.
“(Y/n) i-” He begins, “I’m sorry okay? I guess I just… I don’t know. Its a brother thing. You’re my little sister. And I don’t think I’ve ever admitted to myself that you’ve really grown up. To me you’re still that 8 year old with the grazes covering her knees that Dad always complained about. Seeing you with a boyfriend, I guess it’s just gonna take some time for me to actually admit to myself that you’re really growing up”
“You’re acting like I’m so much younger than you Joseph” You chuckle, “I’m 23 for gods sakes”
“Well you’re not to me” He ruffles your hair, “I’ll try my best okay?”
“Sure” You smile gratefully.
As soon as Danny and Zalfie return, Joe’s attitude changes.
“So, did (y/n) tell you about the time a pigeon bit her face?” Joe asks, turning back to his normal self.
“Alright alright shut up Joe” You glare at him.
“So we’re about 7 and 9 and-” He begins.
And suddenly you wished he was back to protective Joe…

Day 6 - Wonwoo

“So I told him that it was okay.” You explained to your friend as you walked towards the food court of the mall. You were telling your friend how Wonwoo texted you about how he wouldn’t be able to see you anytime soon even though Seventeen’s Asian tour was over. Even though you told him you were okay with it, you weren’t. It’s been a while you’ve seen him and it was killing you. What made it worse was the fact that it was the holidays and you weren’t able to spend it with him. To cheer you up, your friend thought it was a good idea to take you shopping.

anonymous asked:

Hello can I request GOM+ takao+hanamiya girlfriends asking them what they want for christmas?Thank you

Akashi: He picked you up from school after his basketball practice.

“Are you listening _______?” your boyfriend’s voice brought you out of your thoughts. “What?” you looked up at him, he was just about to say something when you tripped over your own feet.

But Akashi was fast and catches you before you hit the ground. “You should be more careful _______” he says with a worried look. “I was just thinking” you started to walk again. “What are you thinking of that much that you stumble?” “Well, I was thinking about Christmas. What do you want for Christmas Seij?” to your surprise your boyfriend starts to laugh. “What is it?” you look at him with a confused look. “I thought it was something bad or something that bother you, well I’m relieved that it wasn’t something serious.” He sighed with relief. “I actually need a new clock my old broke for the fifth time this week.” He took your hand in his. “And what do you want?”


Aomine: “Shit!” Aomine cursed when his basketball shoes fall apart.

“You can wish for new shoes in Christmas gift” you said sitting on the bench. You had watched Aomine playing basket with his team and he stayed to shoot a little extra after the practice wich was surprising because he always otherwise used to sleep during practice.  

Aomine picked up his shoes. “No, it’s too expensive.” 
He looked at you, a smirk spread across his face. You knew what he was up to.

“No, I know exactly what I want for Christmas,” he took a step forward and pulled you closer whispering in your ear. “A whole day in bed with you and I will be the one deciding pace.” You opened your mouth to protest when he put his index finger over your lips and prevents you from continuing and in the next second he replaced it with his lips.


Kise: You were out wandering the streets when you met Kise and Kuroko. “______cchi!” your boyfriend hugged you to your surprise. “What are you doing here?” he asked. Before you answered you greeted at Kuroko. “I was looking at the shop windows to get some ideas.” You answered.

“Kuroko!” everybody turned around to see Kagami walking towards the group. “Are you free for a moment, I need a little help finding shoes that would fit my feet?” he stopped when he saw Kise and you. He nodded at you two continuing. “I’ve been looking for three hours.”

“Go and help Kagami, he seems to need it” Kise says.  Kagami was too stressed out for even noticing Kise’s words. Kuroko went off with Kagami and left the two of you alone on the square.

“So, you were looking for a Christmas present for me?” You blush. “Aww _______cchi is so cute!” he puts his arms around your waist as you walk down the streets. “What do you want for Christmas Ryouta?”
He thought for a moment before answering. “A selfie-stick” you looked up at him. “Seriously?” “Yes, we should take more pictures together” he said and picked up his phone. You turned away your face from the camera. “Please______cchi, you are so cute.” You felt his soft lips against your bare neck and looked up in surprise. Click. “Ryouta!” you hit him but he just laughs and hugs you.


Kuroko: He looked at you,  running around in the house and decorating for Christmas. He smiled. He loved to see you like this.

You were always so happy and you always smiled. Especially when it came to decorate.

This was your first Christmas that you two would spend together. He took up some porcelain gnomes out of the box and put them in the window.

You came running with some other Christmas stuff. “Look what I found Tetsu! It’s the Christmas star!” he was about too answer but you were already on the way to the kitchen.

He followed you. You turned around and threw yourself into his arms. You smiled up at him. “So what do you want for Christmas Tetsu?” he wrapped his arms around you. “Actually I need a new basketball.” “I thought so.” You hummed happily, rested your head on his shoulder. “This is going to be the best Christmas ever.”


Midorima: You found him sitting in the living room studying. You sighed, he always studied so hard. You envy him, he was so smart and he seemed to like to study. You wanted to be more like him. But you stopped long time ago. Accepting the fact that you couldn’t be like your boyfriend.

“Shintarou” you called his name. No answer. You tried again, but no response. You made your way through the room to him.
You put away his book that he was reading and sat down in his lap.
“Please, stop study for a while, you need to rest some times and it’s actually holiday so you don’t have to study Shin-chan.”
You hugged his stiff body. “Well, this is not what I call resting” he murmured against your neck. “It’s almost Christmas and you haven’t spend any time with me so I haven’t asked you what you want for Christmas.” You said a bit grumpy.

Midorima immediately felt guilty, he had not spent any time with you at all. He wanted to, but he had put his studies first. “I’m sorry nanodayo” he apologized deeply.
Satisfied with his answer you looked at him. “Then I can ask you now what you want for Christmas.” You actually knew what he wanted but you liked to spend as much time that you could with your boyfriend.

“I saw a book yesterday…” you laughed. “I knew exactly that you were going to say something like that.”

It was in that moment that he really understood how much that he had missed you.


Murasakibara: You was lying on top of Murasakibara, resting your head on his chest. The two of you was lying on the couch watching TV.

Murasakibara reached out and grabbed some snacks from the coffee table.

His steady heart beat made you calm and you rose and fell in time with his breathing. 
You lifted your head too look at him. His eyes were fixed on the candy that he was eating. After a while he looked back at you. “Why is ______ chin staring at me like that?” “What do you want for Christmas Atsushi?” he stopped chewing. You could see that he was thinking hard when frowned.  “I want candy” he finally said. You raised your eyebrows. “But you always eat” “But I want something that you have made for me.” “Are you sure? Because otherwise I could…” he shoved a candy into your mouth. “_____ chin should eat and rest” he said and patted your head before returned to his snacks and the TV.


Takao: He stood in the kitchen cooking dinner for the two of you when you entered. He asked about your day and you told him about the coworkers that didn’t want to cooperate, complaint from other newspapers and then your boss. “You should take some days off, hanging out with friends or with me.” His words made you warm. He was always thinking of you. You loved that so much about him.

“(Name) and I were thinking of this weekend. We are going for Christmas gift shopping.” He left the stove and wrapped you up in his arms. “You should. Take some rest honey, stop thinking about work.” “This is the only time that I can go to town so what do you want for Christmas Kazunari?” he pressed a kiss on your sensible skin below your earlobe.

“I just want to spend the Christmas with you, that’s the only thing that I want.”


Hanamiya: No one knew that Hanamiya Makoto could be such a softy and he made sure that it stayed that way.

You woke up next to your boyfriend. He was already awake. “You are such a sleepyhead” he said when you curled up against him.
Waking up with him was one of the best things. He tried to act cool but he always failed. Trying to be rude but ended up being sweet to you. It was one of the things that you loved about him.

“It’s almost Christmas” you said. “Yeah” he grumped. “What do you want for Christmas?” he turned his face so he could see you. “Seriously? You don’t know? I should call you my girlfriend?” he shook his head and sighed. He positioned himself on top of you. “I thought what we did last night was a hint for you. Well, then I have to show you again what I want for Christmas.

Yoongi Scenario: Let it Snow.

The Christmas Series

Genre: Romance / Drama.

In which you are a christmas enthusiast and Yoongi is basically the grinch.


-I don’t get it- you said trying not to sound as angry as you were feeling. –I even bought couple christmas sweaters-

-Just don’t count on me for too much stuff- your boyfriend answered like it wasn’t a big deal.

Yoongi was being unreasonable, this wasn’t just a simple thing for you, this was christmas and being that he was your boyfriend whom you adored you wanted to spend all the possible time with him, you wanted to go on romantic dates where you could take strolls down the city to watch the snow fall, you wanted to make snowmen and then drink hot chocolate together, you wanted him to hold your hands to keep them warm, you wanted everything winter and christmas related with him because you loved him. So how was it that he was being a douche saying things like that?

-I told you this before didn’t I? I don’t like christmas-

You crossed your arms trying to remain calm, but with him being like that how could you? –Why? Christmas is fun and romantic, don’t you want for example to go with me ice-skating? -

Yoongi sipped a bit of his tea and then smirked. –You would fall on your ass in no time, I know you don’t know how to skate-

You groaned. –That’s not the point here! You knew I was looking forward to christmas time and now you tell me this-

Yoongi breathed in. –I’m being honest with you Y/N, it’s not my fault you had already made plans without notifying me-

-Well I’m sorry- you said sarcastically. –I made those plans thinking about you because you’re my boyfriend-

Yoongi ran a hand trough his hair. –Look, I’m not saying we won’t do anything, but I don’t want to do all that crazy Christmas stuff-

-Are you calling me crazy? -

Yoongi sat quiet not quite understanding where was this argument going. –I didn’t say that, It’s just that all those things are so complicated-

You tried not to roll your eyes, you knew this was because he was being lazy. –How is it complicated? -

Yoongi finished his cup of tea and looked at you with uncomfortable eyes, he knew there was going to be a discussion over this, but now he didn’t know how to handle it. –It’s just is- You huffed, finishing your cup of coffee. You grabbed your purse and started to put on your scarf, Yoongi at first didn’t realize what was happening until you were on your feet. –Are you leaving? -

-Yes- you answered taking your jacket. –Since you are being like this is better if we think about this separately, we aren’t going to win anything fighting-

Yoongi squinted his eyes, there was a trap in here. You would never say that, you liked to discuss things as it happened not leave them for later, even less think separately; he came into the conclusion you probably wanted him to beg and regret what he had said. But you weren’t going to succeed.

-Alright then, text me when you get home-

Your calm demeanor wavered for a second, your eyes burning him, Yoongi just knew you so well he wanted to chuckle. You breathed in dramatically. –Well then, I’m going, I would wish you a Merry Christmas but you hate it- you threw him one last look and walked towards the door of the coffee shop that was so tiny Yoongi could hear you when you muttered “Grinch” before going out.

Christmas nights (Jack Request)

“Well I wish it could be Christmassss every dayyyyy” You and Jack sing in unison, dancing crazily around the lounge, “When the kids start singing and the band begins to playyyyy”
“Yeah okay I’d prefer for my ears to not bleed out before tomorrow” Conor walks in, turning down the speaker.
“Just because it’s not one of your shitty songs” You joke, hopping down from the chair.
“My music is a work of art” He comments, “I’m sorry you’re not musically experienced enough to recognise my greatness”
“Keep telling yourself that Conor” Jack rolls his eyes.
It was currently Christmas Eve. The day before the best day of the year in your eyes. And this year, you and some of the guys were staying in London. Josh couldn’t go home so you, your boyfriend Jack, Conor and Mikey had all decided to celebrate the holiday in your city. Joe and Oli had gone to their homes and Caspar had been lucky enough to catch a flight to South Africa. You would be cooking and there would certainly be a lot of mayhem.
“Well I have a bit of last minute wrapping to do so I’ll leave you crazy kids to scream about Santa coming” Conor chuckles, heading back out with the tape and scissors.
You and Jack were always like this at Christmas. You had been best friends since school and always spent Christmas Eve together before splitting off to your families for the next day. The Eve consisted of crazy dancing as usual, making a gingerbread house, exchanging one present each and listening to music non stop.
“So when is it that we can finally open presents?” Jack wiggles his brows, flopping onto the couch.
You hop down beside him, “Well it is nine pm so I suppose its only right” You grin.
Both of you jump back up and head to the tree that shields your presents. There were plenty of them there for all of you but right at the front were two presents. You collect yours for your boyfriend and he does the same.
“Alright three two one” Jack says and both of your tear into the wrapping like kids.
Yours holds a hamper full of your favourite things. Double stuff oreos, plenty of chocolate, your favourite body spray and plenty of other little bits that he knew you loved.
“Oh my god I love it!!! Thank you!!” You grin, flicking through all of the items.
“You didn’t…” he looks up, lifting up the All Saints jumper you had bought him.
“It was one of your actual presents but i knew you wanted it for Christmas day.” You smile and he wraps you in a big hug.
“Thank you gorgeous” He grins, kissing your temple
You both end up leaving the paper in a mess around your feet and cuddling on the couch instead.
“Do you remember that Christmas Eve we spent pranking Conor the entire time?” You ask, looking up at him from where your head rested on his lap.
“Yeah I don’t think he was that happy that he had to hunt round the house for all of his presents again" Jack comments, “Or the time we were like seven and we sat outside for hours waiting for Santa”
“And we saw a shooting star” You mention.
“I wished for better presents than Conor” Jack laughs.
You spend the rest of the night talking like this. Reminiscing about the best memories from childhood Christmases. How one year your parents had given up on trying to split you two up and ended up all going round to his to celebrate. It happened the next year at your house. It definitely happened more than that. You two were always inseparable. Well, you still were. You were best friends to a couple now. And everyone knew it was a couple that would last.
You spoke until your eyes became heavy and your night ended with a ‘See you on Christmas beautiful"
~~~Time Skip~~~
“Come on dickheads Santa’s brought the presents!!!” Josh jumps on the pair of you with Conor and Mikey.
You and Jack both jump to wake up, still left in the same place as the night before.
You boyfriend looks at you and grins, “Its Christmassssss!”

Thanksgiving

“When is your flight coming in?”
“3:05”
You look at your phone, it reads 2:47. You’d already been waiting in the airport for an hour, impatiently. “Okay. I’ll see you in a bit then.”
“I guess so.”
“Love you.”
“Love you more.”
You smile as you hang up and slump back down into your chair. You look down at the sign you made to pick him up, it says ‘Dan’ in all capital letters. You wanted this weekend to be as cliche as humanly possible.
“Who you waitin on?” The old woman next to you asks.
“My boyfriend.”
“Oh! I’m waiting for my son, I made him his favorite apple pie.”
“That sounds lovely.”
“How long you two been dating for, sweetie?”
“2 years today.”
“Thanksgiving and an anniversary! Well isn’t that just wonderful!”
“Yeah, it is.”
———————————–
3:12
You sit there, bouncing your leg impatiently. You look up when you hear his voice, ecstatic. You hold up your sign smiling like a child on Christmas morning. He sees you and runs over to you. He drops his suitcase and lift you up in his arms and spins you around, everyone in the airport is looking at you.
“I missed you so much.” He kisses your cheek.
“I missed you more.”
“Everyone is looking at us.”
“Good.” You kiss him.
———————————–
“I’m nervous.”
“Why? You’ve met my family before Dan.” You grab his hand and squeeze it lightly.
“I know, I know. I just want everything to be perfect.”
“You’re here. It already is.” Just as your about to kiss him your mom runs out of the house,
“Dan! I’m so happy to see you!”
“Hi Mrs.(y/l/n)! You’re looking gorgeous as always!”
“Oh you! Come in, come in! It’s freezing out here.”
———————————–
“The food looks delicious, mom.”
“Honey, you cooked most of it.”
“I made a casserole.”
“I’m sure it’s a delicious casserole, babe.”
“Well I know it’s delicious.” You smirk back at him.
As dinner goes on your family questions Dan on every aspect of his life, and he dodges the questions gracefully. He’s nervous, you can tell, he’s been tapping his fingers on his leg sporadically all night.
“Are you okay?” You whisper into his ear.
“I’m perfect. You’re perfect. And that’s why I’m going to do this now.”
“What?”
He stand up abruptly. “I’m sorry to interrupt, but Mrs.(y/l/n) I think I’m gonna do this now.”
You look to your mom and she smiles wide at you, “What’s going on, mom?”
“(Y/n), these last two years have been absolutely phenomenal. I literally never thought I’d ever be this happy in my life, like, ever. I think about you everyday, all the time.”
“Dan.”
“No, listen to me.” He laughs nervously, “I think- no, I know that you are the person I want to spend the rest of my life with.”
“Dan!”
“I’m serious! I want to be with you all the time, I want this.” He motions around the table, “I want family. I want it with you. So I’m asking you this with all of my heart and soul and mind and whole entire body for that matter,” He bends down, getting on one knee, “Will you marry me?”
“Holy shit!” Your jaw drops, “Holy fucking shit.”
“That isn’t what I was quite expecting.” Dan’s face is red.
“Oh my god, no! Not like no like I’m saying no! No like no, I’m excited!”
“Honey, we’re all confused! Just tell him yes or no!”
“Yes! Yes! Absolutely!”
“Really?”
“Yes, Dan! Of course! I love you! So fucking much!”
He jumps up and kisses you and everyone around the table claps.
———————————–
“What about June? It’s not too hot and it’s not too cold.”
“You’d look sexy in any weather if you ask me.”
“Oh yeah?”
“Absolutely.”
You look at the ring on your finger, “It’s truly beautiful.”
“It was my mum’s”
“Really?”
“No, it was Cleopatra’s.”
You punch him in the arm, “I changed my mind I don’t want to marry you.”
He laughs, “I love you so much, you know that?”
“Well I mean, I assumed that’s why I have this ring on my finger.”
“I just wanted to trap you, that’s all.”
“Mrs. Howell. I like it.”
