unsub = unknown subject (aka the bad guy)


John rapped on your office door twice and held up a file once you looked up. “We got a case. NYC. It’s pretty bad.”

You stood and grabbed your tablet, looking through the files as you walked with him to the conference room. “Ten bodies? Why are we just now being called in?”

“Lead detective on the case was stubborn.” You snorted and he smiled at you. “But the details got leaked to the media and his captain made the call.”

“The media’s already running the story,” you asked as you sat down at the round table, nodding at each member of your team.

“Yeah,” said Maria as she leaned back in her chair. “They’re calling him the ‘King of Hearts.’ Saying he’s the worst thing that’s happened to the city since the Son of Sam.”

Angelica looked up from the files. “Are we sure it’s one unsub?”

George Washington, your team leader, sat down and smoothed his tie as he did so. “You think it’s more than one?”

“Like partners,” asked John.

Angelica shook her head. “No, I don’t think they’re partners. There are two different MO’s. The only thing they have in common is that they both take things from the victims.”

“Does he leave the things he takes with the next victim like the Reaper,” asked Hercules.

“No,” said Maria, looking over the files. “I’m betting they’re both keeping the items as trophies.”

“Or giving them to a significant other as gifts,” you interjected.

“All good ideas. We’ll talk more on the jet. Wheels up in 30,” Gwash commanded.

“That is a hideous shirt you should totally just take it off” au Nessian please

A/N: Four months later, but I did it!  Woo.  I hope you like.  Also drink responsibly friends :)

look @rhysndtrash I made nessian!


Truce

Cassian passes a damp rag over the now clean bar top once more before throwing it over his shoulder in that stereotypical fashion of bartenders everywhere.  His nimble fingers quickly fill a crystal clear glass with icy water which he then pushes in front of his last remaining patron, expression brooking no arguments as he growls, “Drink it.”

Sadly, his no nonsense glare doesn’t do much, considering her forehead is essentially adhered to the cherry wood bar as it had been since he’d told his fellow bartenders she was cut off.  Aside from established policy about not allowing customers to drink themselves blind, he had a particular responsibility for this woman - mainly that Feyre would have his head (or worse) if he let her sister get too out of it.

As it is, he figures her current blood alcohol level was probably butting up against that line, but he was always one for pushing limits, so today Nesta got to enjoy that - or suffer it depending on when he asks her.  Cassian clears out the tip jar while simultaneously ripping the paper lei foisted on him every third Friday for ‘theme night’ (which allegedly expanded their customer base) and mindlessly goes through the motions of closing up.

Actually, no matter when he asks her she’ll probably berate him using a colorful array of expletives - the woman could swear like a sailor.  They’d met through Rhysand and Feyre nearly a year ago at a party meant to bring their two groups together once things were serious enough between the happy couple, and it was safe to say they’d immediately become ‘frenemies’ as they say, except maybe without the friend (at least on her part).  Suffice it to say Cassian could flirt with a brick wall and Nesta was light-years less receptive than said wall.

Which was why he was surprised when she’d shown up at the bar everyone knew he worked regularly, and proceeded to get soused.  From the conversation he’d overheard her having with the bouncer (and then with herself when Varian had subtly inched back toward his place in the shadows) she’d had an unpleasant encounter with her father, which lead to her finishing off her own personal alcohol stash and then taking an Uber here.  Where she’d been perched on the brushed copper stool like a lump for the last hour and a half of his shift.

His nightly rituals complete, Cassian offers Varian a salute and leans on the seat nearest to Nesta.  “You’ve got to drink that water.  You’ll already hate yourself in the morning - and me but that’s not new.”

Cups of coffee

*Lafayette x reader
*Modern

A/N: Sooo I tried to check the grammar and spelling the best I could, but I got kinda lazy lol. Anyways, enjoy!

Warnings: uh… fluffy I guess?

~~

It was an average day in New York, it was cold, the streets were crowded with people also on their way to work, and no one seemed in the mood to do anything but push past you harshly.

You finally made it to the small cafe, which happened to be right across from Starbucks, so that meant you didn’t get as much business. You pulled out your key, unlocking the door, then going to the back to put down your purse and put on your apron. You were just about to make a cup of coffee for yourself when-

There was a ding, signaling the doors had opened. You walked to the front, frowning to see a very cute man, wide eyed with hair pulled up into a bun. “Sir, we’re not open for another 20 minutes-” He cut you off, panting. “I know, I know, but I have to get to work in the next,” he paused and checked his phone, eyes widening. “Ten minutes, please just make me one cup, I’ll pay double and everything.”

You sighed, before nodding your head, taking his order and going to turn on the coffee machine. You then turned back to face him to study him more, smiling when you saw him walking around nervously. “Hey, you okay?” He looked at you and shrugged. 

All you did was nod, turning back to prepare his coffee. Once it was done, you handed it over to him and gave him the total. 

“The total is $5.59,” He reached into his wallet and pulled out a $20 bill, you raised a brow, looking up at him. “Keep the change,” he grinned, taking his coffee and putting his wallet away, before turning back to walk out the door.

“Isn’t this a bit much?”

He didn’t turn around, he only stopped and talked over his shoulder. “I told you I’d pay double.”

~~

It had been a week since you’d seen the dude with the bun, yet for some reason, he had been in your thoughts since. His breathtaking smile hadn’t left your thoughts since then. 

You unlocked the door to the cafe, walking back behind the counter to repeat your routine. Put your purse away, put on your apron, and prepare your own cup of coffee. Everyday, you hoped he would walk through the door again twenty minutes early just so you could get his name. God, you already liked this dude and you didn’t even know his name. 

It had been two hours in, and he still hasn’t shown up. You had no idea why you were getting so upset over it, he had only come in once for a cup of coffee.

Suddenly, the door chimed, you looked up from your phone and put on your ‘hi-what-can-I-get-you-smile’ but he looked rushed, his eyes met yours and he smiled, heading towards you. “Hi, uh, can I get your number?” You frowned, feeling uncomfortable. Yes, you were used to random guys coming up to you for your number, but it still made you feel slightly angry. 

His eyes widened when you noticed how uncomfortable you felt. “Uh, not for me. I-It’s for my friend, he came in like a week ago. He was tall, he had curly hair pulled up into a bun, uh, he was also dark skinned? He also had a French accent! His name is Lafayette.” You smiled when he mentioned his name, “why couldn’t Lafayette himself come get my number himself?” You laughed, pulling out a piece of paper to write your name and number down. 

“He’s been sick all week and asked me to come get it,” he laughed, shrugging as he took the small piece of paper from you. You nodded your head, “well, thank you mr..?” He smiled, shaking your hand, “Alexander Hamilton. Call me Alex.” You nodded your head, waving goodbye as he walked out the door hurriedly. 

~~

You had finally closed up the cafe, today being busier than most days. You began walking down the dark streets of New York, singing some random song that you heard on the radio the other day under your breath.

When you finally reached home, you felt your phone go off. You pulled it out to see a text from an unknown number

Unknown
Uh hey! It’s Lafayette, I had my friend come and get your number earlier. Sorry I couldn’t come myself but I’ve been pretty damn sick and well.. uh, ya know. Anyways, I should be getting better soon so I was wondering if you wanted to.. maybe go on a date?? It’s fine if you don’t, you probably have a boyfriend considering how beautiful you are.
Sent at 10:55pm

You laughed at the text, beginning to answer when your phone went off again. 

Lafayette
Fuck! Why did I send that? Um anyways, sorry about that. You’re probably weirded out right now. Uh anyways, I’ll stop bugging you. 
Sent at 10:55pm

You
You’re so sweet! No, I don’t have a boyfriend and yes, I would love to go out with you :) 
Sent at 10:56pm

Lafayette
Sweet, how about this Saturday at 7pm?

You proceeded to text back and forth, smiling when you flopped onto your couch.

Yeah, you were so glad you let him come into the cafe early.

Fantasy Pretzel Week, Day 7: Any modern trope in an Elves, Fae, or Nymph AU.

Title: “Upon the Green,” (½)

Summary: A Midsummer Night’s Dream AU wherein… Emma Swan and Killian Jones are dramatic, vaguely magical marrieds who scheme, plot, and otherwise interfere with Prince Henry’s troubled love life.

Notes: “Royal fairies, feuding royals” AU for Fantasy Pretzel Week! Loosely based on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I’m also worried this is not… “modern AU” enough for the parameters of this challenge, but it’s an enemies to lovers kinda thing so even if it’s half-wrong it’s also half-right. Also on Ao3. An extra special thanks to all the marvelous ladies at the CS Writers’ Hub who listened to me bitch about this story, and @abbadons-little-witch, who offered up some helpful critique. Also tagging so they don’t yell at me later, @captainwiley and @the-reason-to-sail-home. xo


PUCK
How now, spirit! Whither wander you?

FAIRY
Over hill, over dale,
Thorough bush, thorough brier,
Over park, over pale,
Thorough flood, thorough fire:
I do wander everywhere,
Swifter than the moon’s sphere,
And I serve the Fairy Queen,
To dew her orbs upon the green.
The cowslips tall her pensioners be.
In their gold coats spots you see;
Those be rubies, fairy favors;
In those freckles live their savors.
I must go seek some dewdrops here,
And hang a pearl in every cowslip’s ear.

— William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream (2.1.1-15)


+ Never, in all his many days as a fae, had Killian envisioned such a grand affair, never mind his own wedding day. It seemed as if every flower, on every branch and every bough, was in full bloom despite the lingering frost of late winter. The fountains, though generally dry and barren this time of year, bubbled and gurgled with nectar far too sweet for the season.

anonymous asked:

You mentioned a fic you're working on. If you don't mind, what is it about?

Oh, I don’t mind at all! This fic’s (currently) called All The Magic I Have Known, which is a line from a Shel Silverstein poem.

It’s another slow burn Pynch story, but a totally different AU this time. Kind of a modern fairy tale setting where Henrietta is a kingdom and Cabeswater is a small village on its border that Henrietta’s rulers always try to control in order to take advantage of its magical forest.

I’m playing around with the arranged marriage trope (Blue & Gansey) which also brings Adam and Ronan together. In this story, Adam grew up in Cabeswater and he’s the chosen Magician. But Cabeswater wants to be free of Henrietta, so Adam and Blue approach the arranged marriage as spies. Ronan’s a dreamer but doesn’t really understand his power yet.

I know this all sounds weird, because … it is weird. I’m hoping the plot won’t be a giant mess. Luckily someone I trust is very graciously and patiently reading through it first. (i <3 u @saintagnesparrish)

I think it should be 20 chapters in the end. I should be done with chapter 9 today. I’ve thought about this a lot and come to the conclusion that I’d rather wait until I’m mostly done to start posting chapters. My writing style is screwy, especially with what is probably an overly complicated AU - I tend to go back a lot and revise or even insert earlier references to plot devices that I come up with later. (I’ve already rewritten the prologue I tried to post here, for example.) Also, I felt like people mostly liked the fast updates on my first thing, so I thought it might be fun to try that again if I can manage to hold off long enough.

Anyway thanks for asking! Maybe that was more than what you were looking for.

Pokemon Sun + Moon AU world Gladion and Hau!

A continuation of my concept design for AU Lillie and Gladion, I had to do Gladion’s Z-powered form and Hau.

I tried to keep Gladion’s palette similar to Lillie’s Z-powered form, but I had to choose these colours for this design. The overall outfit was hard to create, I can’t design casual/modern clothing to save my life! I might change it up a bit in the future. It was hard to adjust his hairstyle as well.

As for Hau’s design, he was fun to alter HAHA. He has the complete opposite personality characteristics of our beloved malasada loving boy! Visual wise, it was also hard to design his outfit as well since I’m only basing the AU off of himself. I toned down his colours to reflect his personality, kept several rectangular patches of the hibiscus stem + leaves on his pants (he’s a real simple boy plus I still wanted to refer to his bright shorts), and made his clothes baggier (Hau takes a bit after Hala with his shorts’ colour and his haori, this Hau tries to take after Nanu’s clothing).

I would have made his hair down but I figured having a low ponytail would be better just to make reference to the original Hau’s signature shape.

more doodles for my modern hoh kratos au

kratos didn’t see colette (I imagine she asked him a question when his back was turned or she was standing in the doorway behind him) so he wasn’t intentionally ignoring her (he only does that to yuan) 

also colette wasn’t aware until this point that kratos wears hearing aids. even though in sitcom au/this general au she’s known him as long as she’s known lloyd

BREAKING: Hurricane Hollywood star tapped for female lead in Paramount’s Boy Who Lived

October 11, 2016. Los Angeles.

Well, it’s official.

Seemingly permanent tabloid staple Pansy Parkinson (Hurricane Hollywood; The Hottie and the Nottie), better known for her outrageous late-night party antics than she is for her acting prowess, has been cast as Harry Potter’s (Under the Stairs) on-screen love interest for the futuristic dystopian thriller, Boy Who Lived, slated for release by Paramount sometime in Summer 2018. While Parkinson has been persistently vocal about her desire to make the transition from her Cristal throne in Vegas to the slightly more respectable silver screen, this will be her first role in a major motion picture.

february thirteenth

summary: after a trip around the world, emma returns home to storybrooke, unprepared to be suddenly entwined in killian jones’ life thanks to ruby’s constant meddling, and her dad’s insistence that killian is off limits.

word count: ~12,000

also read on: ao3, ff.net


Ruby Lucas is by definition a meddler.

She’s the reason Emma works at Granny’s, she’s the reason Killian sits in the corner booth alone every morning at 7:00, and she’s the reason Emma holds an unending grudge regarding the morning of February thirteenth.

But that’s not how the story starts.

It starts with Emma Nolan driving through Storybrooke, Maine and bumping into Killian Jones on the sidewalk outside of Granny’s Diner not fifteen minutes into her forced stop in the tiny town.

Actually, the story starts a long time before that, during a time where Emma was dating a Class A asshole named Neal, but that’s less important.

Killian’s carrying a paper cup filled with steaming hot coffee when she bumps into him and the only reason she knows is because it splashes straight out of the cup and onto her favorite sweater.

“Oh, bloody hell,” he immediately blurts out. “I am so, so sorry, love.”

Hi, here’s me trying to write Drarry

“au where harry james potter has a youtube channel in which he tells story times about himself and shit that happens with him and bam one day he and Draco Beauty Guru Malfoy collaborate: Harry tells a story time while Draco does his make up”- @saintdrarry

Harry James Potter started his youtube channel at the age of 18, when he moved out of the Dursley’s and into an old London mansion he inherited from his late godfather.

  • He goes to uni for European History (he wants to be a professor because he’s a neeeeerd) .
  • His first video- “Welcome to this Grim-old Place!”
  • Ron, Hermione, Neville, Luna, and Ginny are constantly in his “daily” vlogs
    • Tbh he’s shit at being daily, it’s mainly when he can be bothered to go outside
  • He loves to walk around the city with his dogs, Hedwig (a Samoyed), and Padfoot (a Great Dane-also called a boarhound)
  • Often, they go to a small bookshop owned by Xenophilius Lovegood (who always lets animals in) and read for hours
  • He likes to put glasses on his dogs while the lay down and drool over “doggy books” (chew toys in the shape of books) and Instagram it
  • He likes to walk around the house and make up stories about the Blacks, and then ends them all by looking at the camera, very seriously, and saying, “Their ghosts will murder me in my sleep, I’m Sirius, goodnight.”

  • Often, though, he just makes videos at the end of the day telling about his life.
  • His best videos are the drunk ones at all the youtube parties-or the ones when he’s home alone
    • An excerpt from one such video, where he is sitting on a desk chair backwards-”you guys, i gotta be honest with you. Boys are hot as fucK
      • He fell off the chair during that last word
  • The channel gains popularity, and he has like 4 million subs by the time he turns 20
  • His most watched video (with like 15 mil views!!) is “My Coming Out Story
    • The Thumbnail is of him and Ginny sitting on his bed
    • The description is, “Hi im not gay. Im not straight. Im certainly not dating Ginny. Yes, I used to. No, I don’t have an s/o atm.
    • Luna pops up about 30 seconds in, kisses Ginny for 10 seconds while Harry very awkwardly looks at the camera, and then leaves with Ginny.
    • Newsflash: he’s bi af.
  • His second most watched video is about his mum and dad, and everyone cries watching it.
    • They died protecting him in an attempted robbery from a gang when he was very little
    • He also talks about Sirius and Remus
    • Sirius died by being killed by a gang member (after spending 12 years in prison for “being one”
    • Remus died from Cancer
  • Another video is where Luna, Ginny, and Hermione do his hair and choose his wardrobe for a daily vlog
    • He lost a bet
    • His hair is long, so Hermione puts it in a french braid and ties it up in a messy bun
    • They then spend a few minutes talking about how Hermione’s coarse hair has a different care process
    • Ginny chooses an orange button up shirt and faded dungarees for the outfit
    • Luna just elects to put glitter/stick-on jewels on Harry’s face because, she says, it will really pop on his dark skin
  • After that video they film a vlog in which they go to the London Zoo, which is quite near Grimmauld Place
  • Harry really likes the glitter, so he searched Youtube for makeup tutorials and found the one, the only, Draco Malfoy
  • While watching his videos, Harry always notices how clean his workspace was
    • Harry’s house was constantly a mess, but he always cleaned on Sundays-he really did!
  • Also, Malfoy was cold, hardly ever expressing emotion
  • He was brutally honest and loved a challenge
    • Blaise Zabini and Pansy Parkinson (two other beauty gurus) often pop up in his videos
  • Malfoy has one video up about the racist comments he receives for his friends being, well, not white
    • He rants for 15 minutes about how real MUA’s should be able to do makeup on all people, not just white people
  • Apparently, Malfoy has his own line of makeup, called, of course, “Malfoy”
  • All of his videos were makeup related, but his other social media (what no, Harry didn’t stalk) shows his normal life-perfectly pristine and flawless in every way, with a hint of crude humor on Tumblr
  • He was never seen in public without a full face of makeup; his eyeliner could cut a bitch.
  • He didn’t have any pets, but his parents owned an estate with peacocks and horses
    • Draco had a Friesian called Atticus (After Atticus Finch, of course)
    • Anyways, Draco lives in London as well and goes to uni for English
  • One day, Harry emails Draco asking if he wants to collab.
    • This was after weeks of obsessing and multiple friends yelling at him to “just find the boy and snog him”
  • Technically, Ron and Hermione wrote and sent the email
  • When Draco reads it, his heart stops
    • Wow who knew that Draco had been low-key obsessed with Harry the whole time?
    • I did. I’m the author
    • Also, you did. This is a cliche and I am loVING IT
    • Anyways, back to the story.
  • He immediately calls Pansy and yells at her to go to his flat
    • They spend 20 minutes crafting the perfect respons
  • 3 days later, a bare-faced Draco Lucius Malfoy shows up on Harry James Potter’s front doorstep. 
  • He steps in, and Harry offers a cuppa
  • He accepts, and they talk for almost two hours before starting to film.
  • Draco sets up his makeup and hair stuff on a desk next to the camera, and has Harry sit down on a stool opposite his own
  • Harry decides he’s going to talk about his godson, Teddy, and tells Draco so
  • Draco just stares at Harry for about two minutes before bursting out laughing and informing Harry that Teddy is his cousin
  • Eventually, they start filming.
  • Draco decided a long time ago that Harry would be golden, and makes him up that way-from bright eyelids to shiny cheekbones
    • His lips were a matte brown nude with a shimmer on them
  • In the meantime, Harry chattered on about his bus ride with Teddy and how the kid’s hair was bright red, and it almost seemed pink in the sun
  • When they were done, Harry saw how he looked and gasped
    • “Don’t you dare cry, Potter, you’ll ruin everything”
  • After they turned off the camera, Harry worked up the courage to ask Draco out
  • Draco, of course, said yes, and kissed Harry softly on the mouth
    • “Oi, you’ll mess up my makeup” “The lipstick is special, it’s made to stay on. Anyways, I can always do it again.”

They then lived happily ever after goodnight.
