and he and the chief are friends now

#SaveTheEPA and #FirePruitt

Scott Pruitt spent most of his career obstructing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Now this guy leads the EPA and is destroying decades of environmental standards. Makes no sense. He is denying what scientists have proved to be real time and time again—Climate Change. I collected a few articles if you have the time to read through them. Talk about it amongst friends and expose him.

Cap-IM Rec Week 2017 (Saturday)

Kiss It Better Saturday: July 22nd: Hurt/Comfort of any kind

Today’s post is late, but here we go! :)

Heart Burn by nightwalker (@onemuseleft)
Summary: There was a dragon and now Tony’s mostly naked and it’s all Reed Richards’ fault.

The Wrong Place at the Wrong Time by MemoryDragon (@memorydragon)
Summary: After their plane went down, Steve and Tony only just barely managed to find a cave for shelter. If only it weren’t always the wrong place and the wrong time for Tony.Yippie ki-yay.

should be a dream but I’m not sleepy by seventymilestobabylon
Summary: Steve and Tony get hit with a telepathy spell and a magical blizzard, and they have to take shelter in a cabin with fresh milk but no working electricity. Even when they can sort of read each other’s minds, they are still terrible at communicating.

Tony. Doctor Tony Stark. by itsallAvengers (@itsallavengers)
Summary: Steve is sick again, surprise surprise. So, of course, his friends decide to have him carted off back to hospital for the fourth time that month. God, does he hate hospitals. Until he meets his Doctor.

we pick ourselves undone by laramara
Summary: It might appear that award-winning surgeon Tony Stark, the head of neurosurgery at Shield Hospital, well and truly has his life together. Now if he could only figure out how to tell people that his father, world class neurosurgeon Howard Stark, is locked away in a nursing home with Alzheimer’s, devise a way to get Chief Fury off his back for good, and work out what the hell he’s going to do about the weird on-again-off-again thing he has going with the head of cardio, he’d finally have everything sorted.

To The Core (Under My Skin) by windscryer 
Summary: Hydra has Steve stashed in the freezer like a pint of Ben & Jerry’s when Tony finds him. They’ll pay for that, of course, but first he has something much more important to take care of.

as they learned to see by often_adamanta
Summary: Tony stayed silent through her terse explanation, anger growing. When Natasha was finished, he asked, “So you’re telling me that Steve’s been missing for almost two months, most likely kidnapped by an unknown organization, a force which employs two brilliant but completely crazy scientists that hate Stark Industries because they were refused jobs on the basis of their psych evals, and I’m only hearing about this now?”

To Break a Dream by Wordsplat (@wordsplat)
Summary: Steve is kidnapped and tortured to prove a point to the American people at large. Warning: Graphic depictions of multiple kinds of torture. Not for the squeamish.

For freedom and the fear of forgetting by dapperanachronism (@dapperanachronism)
Summary: Steve’s eyes linger on Tony until the last possible second, as if he’s trying to memorize features he’s desperate not to forget. Because he will, if they don’t get out of here and fast.

Syzygy (a Kludged Together remix) by Mizzy (@mizzy2k)
Summary: When Tony Stark cut Steve Rogers’ morning jog short to join him on a reconnaissance mission off the East Coast, Tony sure wasn’t expecting to end up stuck on a life raft in the middle of the ocean, Steve’s hand knuckle-deep in his chest.

Faults, Rifts, and Other Gaps in the Firmament by reona32
Summary: Things are disappearing around the helicarrier and the Avengers discover something lurking in the shadows.

Blow Out by xaritomene
Summary: The Avengers are stuck in a cave, and Tony, despite being essentially incapacitated by the loss of his suit, has a working plan to deal with this shit. So what if his team thinks he’s only useful in the suit? And so what that they’re not in life-threatening danger, the kind that Loki strews around himself like confetti? Tony is going to get them out of there by hook or by crook, because goddammit he hates caves, and no one else is coming up with a better plan. They’re not in danger now, but time is running out. And if Tony has to damage himself to pull off his plan, well, them’s the breaks.
Incidentally, Steve doesn’t like it when Tony’s damaged. (Or: Stand back! Tony Stark’s about to try science. Dangerous, self-sacrificing science.)

This Wasn’t What the Brochure Promised by kahn (@kahn-on-tumblr)
Summary: “Do you think this is still a training exercise, or did we just get our asses handed to us by actual bad guys?” asked Clint. 
Tony, Steve, Clint and Bruce spend quality time together in a cave. Tony does not build another arc reactor (even if he sort of needs one). Steve is all Protective Leader. Clint is terrifyingly good with a knife. Bruce bleeds and snarks. There is banter and embarrassing amounts of schmoop and the boys get very touchy-feely.

I’m Here, Sweetheart by DaftPunk_DeLorean
Summary: When Tony gets grievously injured at a press conference, Steve just about loses his mind with worry. And not only because they are best friends, or teammates, or colleagues. No one could blame Steve for his reaction, knowing that he and Tony were married. The problem was, no one knew.

Presenteeism by Veldeia (@veldeia)
Summary: Tony thinks piloting the armor remotely while letting the others believe he’s wearing it is a good plan, until he realizes he’s not hung over, but actually quite ill.Steve thinks something’s off with Tony today, but he has no clue what that might be, and since Tony says he’s good to go, they’ll proceed with the mission anyway.

Anti-Virus by marinarusalka
Summary: Steve didn’t think he could get sick any more. He was wrong. Tony didn’t think of himself as the caretaking type. He was wrong too.

If You Never Say Your Name Out Loud To Anyone bytheladyingrey42
Summary: Sometimes, Steve has panic attacks. Or at least he used to. Nowadays, he mostly just has conversations with Tony Stark.

Tony Stark Defense Squad (Steve’s Had Enough) by orbingarrow (@orbingarrow)
Summary: The Avengers are called in by the government to “discuss” recent events, but it turns into a game of Let’s Bash Tony and Steve is so not cool with that. Or, the one where Steve Rogers makes himself the President of the Tony Stark Defense Squad. Matching t-shirts to come later.

Under Armor by trilliath (@trilliath)
Summary: Tony’s a little tiny bit entirely stuck in his suit. But who needs the jaws of life when you have a Super Soldier on hand?

Charles Xavier x reader (yes, another one)

Originally posted by julee-art

“Y/N, could you please come to my office for a second?” You heard Charles’s voice ring in your head.

“What is it Charles? Can’t you tell me now?” You asked turning pages in the book you were reading.

“I would prefer you coming here darlin’. It’s important.” You sighed and put the book down.

“Alright professor. I’m coming.”

“Thank you dear.” You walked up the stairs of the busy school. It was filled with children of all ages. From afar you could see Hank desperately trying to rush some of them into a classroom but that didn’t seem to work very well. You giggled and walked down the corridor to the professor’s office. You knocked twice and entered the room.

Escape: the Bree years

Ifrinn!”  

Jamie turned from the changing table, and marched towards the bathroom holding Bree away from him like hazardous waste material.  He turned on the taps to run a quick bath.  When the temperature was right, he popped her into the tub. 

He took an earbud out, speaking directly to his daughter, Now ye listen here, ye wee gomeral.  I’ll no’ change a nappie again after this. That’s twice ye shit in as many minutes. I have a meeting to listen to!”

Bree stared at her father as he spoke, her clear blue eyes wide.  She slapped a hand down into the water and blinked at the splash that hit her face.

“Jamie?”

He fumbled with his phone to unmute it so he could talk, slipping it back into his pocket.  “Aye. Right here.”

“What do you think?” Jenny asked.

“I agree the numbers look good.  I’m anxious about bottling that blend too early though.  I dinna think we should be -”

Bree’s shriek and subsequent babbling hit the airwaves.  

“Sorry.  Bree says hello.”  Everyone laughed, and Jamie booped Bree’s nose. “Anyway, I dinna think -”

Bree flung her hand again and splashed Jamie in the face.  His wide mouth snapped shut, and he took a calming breath.

“I dinna think we should compromise the quality,” he said quickly and muted the phone again.

“Ye wee besom,” he laughed, and rubbed his nose against his daughter’s.  He finished washing Bree’s bum, rinsed her off, and wrapped her up in a towel.  

As the call wound down, Jamie unmuted, signed off, and pulled the earbuds out of his ears.  

“Listen,” Jamie said, making Brianna focus on him as he diapered her.  “I get yer no’ jazzed about this.  But Mam is a doctor, and she needs to be doctoring.” 

Bree made a razzing sound, then babbled, “Da da da da da,” at him.  

“Aye. Da. That’s me,” Jamie said, pointing at his chest.  “Dinna change the subject, Lass.  So.  We need today to go smoothly so she doesna worry.”  He slipped the onesie over her head. 

“And, nighean bhreagha, we need to really get on, so yer Mam willna fash about me staying home wi’ ye at least two days a week.”  He zipped up her fresh sleeper.

“Otherwise,” he whispered seriously, getting close to her face, “It’s the day nursery for ye.  Where they’ll be holdin’ ye prisoner.”

Bree reached up and grabbed Jamie’s nose.  “Ye ken my meanin’ then.  It’ll stink.”  

Jamie picked up his daughter and turned to head downstairs to his office.  His foot hit something and sent it sliding across the floor.  He bent down to pick it up from where it had flipped open.  He wouldn’t have read it except he saw his name. Glancing through it, he saw it more than once.

His name was on every page.

He felt his stomach flip, and sat down hard in the rocking chair settling Brianna on his lap.  Perusing the journal he read his wife’s daily thoughts.  

“Oh, Claire,” he whispered.


Claire took the bus to the hospital.  She wanted today to be like every other work day before Brianna was born.  She felt it would calm her if she repeated her routine.  

Getting off at her stop she looked over at the big building that was so much a part of her life.  She had missed it.  All of it. While she worried that she was leaving Bree too soon, she also knew that working would be good for her.   

Taking a deep breath she pulled her ID badge out of her bag, hung it around her neck, and headed in.  

She had barely made it into the Employee Entrance when she spotted a pair of red trainers barreling towards her.  The bright red hair from her assailant’s high pony tail whipped around her head, and she was caught up in a bear hug.

“Geillis!” Claire laughed, and hugged her back.  Hard.

“Yer here!”  Geillis gave her one extra squeeze and stepped back to look at her, holding her at arms’ length.  “Dammit, Claire, ye look good!  Have ye seen Dr. Gowan? What did he say?”

“Not yet.  On my way there now,” Claire linked arms with her friend.  “Walk with me and tell me all the gossip.”

Heads bent together the two women moved through the corridor, Geillis talking, and Claire nodding hello at those she knew.

When they got to Dr. Gowan’s office Geillis gave her another quick hug making Claire promise to text her with his decision.  

Sitting in Dr. Gowan’s office was a bit of a homecoming for Claire.  He was Chief of Staff, and Claire’s dealings with him had always been of a positive nature, even when she had been reporting Dr. Randall. 

He sat back in his chair, relaxed and in good spirits.  “Of course, Dr. Fraser, whenever yer ready to come back is fine.  The Emergency ward misses yer excellent skills.”  

Dr. Gowan leaned forward and looked through his bifocals at his computer. “Now, if it’s two days a week ye want, we can set that up.  I’m afraid ye’ll still have to do on call one day a week, and take a shift one weekend a month.”  He raised his eyebrows at her, making sure she knew all she had to consider.

“I understand, Dr. Gowan.  As long as we could make my two days consistent,” Claire said, “just for the sake of scheduling a babysitter.”

“How is yer….daughter?  Have I got that right?”  

“Yes.  Brianna.  And she’s well, thank you.  In fact, I’m heading down to look at our day nursery after our meeting.  I want to see the facility and check on availability for her.”  

She ignored the sharp pang in her stomach.  

“Ah. Weel, I won’t keep ye.  Tuesdays and Thursdays, then. With, of course, yer other duties.  I’ll have yer schedule sent to ye soon.”  He slapped the arms of his chair, and made to get up.

Claire stood and shook his hand feeling relieved, excited and hesitant, all at the same time.


Jamie pulled into a parking spot and sat for a moment thinking.  He thought again of Claire’s last entry in her journal. It was from this morning.  

Looking forward to my meeting with Dr. Gowan this morning, and the appointment to tour the nursery, even though I wish Jamie would come with me.

The part about him was crossed out until it was almost illegible.  Still, it broke his heart.  They were on opposite sides of this topic. Jamie wanted a nanny for Bree.  Claire thought it best their daughter be at the hospital nursery where she could check on her throughout the day.  

Seeing her cross out the words made him realize that while she was trying, he was not.  So, he bundled up Bree and drove over to the hospital.  He owed Claire his time.  It cost him nothing to look at the nursery, and truth be told if he didn’t see it he couldn’t argue against it.  Sighing deeply he opened the door of the car and climbed out.  Gathering Bree from the backseat, he headed inside.

Jamie came through the double doors and turned to the left.  Halfway down the corridor he noticed Claire standing off to the side looking into the nursery window.  

“There’s yer Mam!” Jamie said to Bree, turning her in his arms so she could see her.

“Mamamamamamamamama….”  Bree babbled. 

Claire spun around.  “Jamie!”  He watched as the shock on her face softened into gratitude.  “You came.”

“Aye,” he said, and kissed her quickly on the lips.  “I realized I canna discount something I’ve never seen.  I wouldna do it in business, mo neighean donn, so I shouldna do it at home.”

Claire reached up and brushed a wind swept curl away from Jamie’s forehead, her hand lingering on his cheek.  

Sky blue eyes met amber ones.  

Thank you for coming. For considering my thoughts on this.

I’m sorry for not agreeing to come sooner. 

If there was one thing Claire valued most in her marriage, it was their ability to communicate without words.  

As Jamie passed the baby to her, he pressed a soft kiss to her forehead.  He smiled as Bree nestled into Claire’s shoulder.  

“Shall we go in?” Jamie asked, hoisting the backpack higher on his shoulder.

“Wait.”  Claire looked through the window again.  

Jamie followed her gaze.  He knew immediately what she was thinking.  He cast around in his mind trying to find a compliment.  

“Tis bright enough!”  That sounded lame, even to him.

Claire turned to look at her husband, disappointment etched in her features. “It’s very crowded.”

Jamie nodded and said nothing.  

“Maybe it’s too soon for me to come back to the hospital.”

“Claire,”  He turned her to face him, his hands resting on her shoulders.  “I ken sometimes ye try to stay…” he paused trying to find the right word.  “Ye try to stay humble, maybe, but I’m no’ ashamed of the fact we can afford a nanny. We work hard, Claire.  And it’s okay to want Bree to stay safe and loved and comfortable in her own home.  And no’ just Bree, but any bairn to come after her.”  

Keeping an arm around her shoulders, Jamie guided his wife towards the door to the parking lot.  

“We can’t just hire anybody, Jamie,” Claire said, looking up at him.  

“Aye. I ken that.”  He made a Scottish noise that indicated he was thinking.  “It will take a while to find a young blonde nanny from Sweden.”

Claire stopped short.  “James Alexander Malcolm Mackenzie Fraser!” she said and shoved at his chest.   

“Claire?”

Both turned around at the sound of the familiar voice.  “Mrs. Fitzgibbons!”

Claire rushed down the hallway to see her old friend and supervisor.  They embraced warmly.

“Is this yer we’en, Claire?”  At Claire’s nod, Mrs. Fitz cupped Brianna’s head in her somewhat wrinkled hand, smoothing down her hair.  “Och, Claire, she’s the spit of her Da!”

Much to Claire’s surprise Bree launched herself at Mrs. Fitz, arms outstretched. Despite her surprise the older woman reacted quickly, and reached out to hold the bairn.  In no time Bree was smiling and cooing while Mrs. Fitz nodded and talked in a sing-song voice.  

“So,” Mrs. Fitz looked at Claire, “Geillis tells me yer to be back soon.”

Claire smiled, and nodded.  

“And did she tell ye I’ll be retired soon?”  Nurse Fitz turned to hand Bree to her father.  

“What?  No!” Claire took both of Mrs. Fitz’ hands in her own.  “For selfish reasons I wish you weren’t, but I understand.  Congratulations, it’s well earned.”

“Mrs. Fitzgibbons,” Jamie said, his face a polite mask.  “Can I persuade ye to join us for lunch?  Our treat.  Celebrating yer retirement, ye ken.”

Claire looked at Jamie.  His voice held an undertone that she couldn’t quite place.  There was a tilt to his head, and a smile playing around his wide mouth. The slanted clear cat-eyes held a hint of mischief.  What are you up to, you wily Scot?

Equally fascinated by the change in her daddy’s tone, Bree placed her chubby hands on either side of Jamie’s face and strained to look into his eyes. 

Jamie just smiled, and deftly maneuvered all three females toward the door.

Messy

Intro: So this monster of a fic I wrote literally in the past 24 hours in response to @whatif-animagineblog ‘s post about Leonard’s laugh.  Read it here.

I do still have drabbles to write and my Kirk series to finish but of course I needed to write this first.  The fic doesn’t necessarily focus on the laugh, but it is in there and did make me smile.  I hope it makes you smile too. 

Pairing: Bones x reader

Word Count: 2870

Summary: So basically the reader and Bones end up making a mess in the kitchen, the reader ending up making Bones laugh (wheeze and snort) after he has had a stressful day.  A little sweet love at the end.  Very fluffy.  Much fluff. 

-Enjoy!-

The bottom line was that you wanted to bake a cake.  That’s literally all you wanted to do and unfortunately being on a starship in the middle of space made it extremely difficult.  So you snuck into the kitchens after hours and were ecstatic to find the ingredients you needed.  

The truth was, you weren’t very good at baking, but when you set your mind to something, it got done, whether or not it was a complete disaster.  

So you gathered your ingredients and started pouring, using a recipe that you pulled up on your PADD.  You put on some music, letting the upbeat tunes fill the small room, making you unbelievably happy. 

“What are you doing?" 

You jumped 10 feet up in the air, knocking the flour bag over, spilling it all over the counter-top and onto the floor.  You had not expected anyone to find you in here. 

You spun around, your heart beating so hard you thought it was going to jump out of your chest and you now saw the source of the voice was the Chief Medical Officer, and your best friend, Leonard McCoy.  

"Len!  Fuck!  You scared me.” You set the spoon in the bowl and tried to catch your breath, shutting off the music.  

Leonard walked over to you, chuckling lowly, “Sorry, darlin’, I thought you heard me come in.”

He neared you, pulling your adrenaline-filled form to his chest briefly, pressing a soft kiss to the top of your head before releasing you and inspecting the mess you were making.

anonymous asked:

The whole group stops to help someone with a distress signal but while they were there, two people talk about how lance needs to stop being useless and stop flirting and he listens in but doesn't do anything. However, they start talking about hunk since he was suspicious of these people too and they say these things about hunk that makes Lance butt in and explode on them.

Yes protect Hunk! 

Sorry I changed the prompt slightly, instead of a distress signal the team is in an alliance meeting (Sorry!)

Lance flashed another smile at a girl who just walked into the room that he and the other paladins were in. They were all in an alliance meeting and everyone had to be present. 

Lance tapped his leg under his chair and started to braid Pidges hair. He couldn’t help it and he was bored beyond belief and he could tell so was everyone else. 

After Lance braided Pidge’s hair he noticed another bored looking girl sitting a few chairs beside him. Lance smiled and slowly slid over so he was next to the girl. 

The girl gave Lance a small smile and gave him a little wave. “Hello Blue Paladin.” 

Lance smiled at her. “Please the name’s Lance and you are? Or should I just call you hermosa?” 

The girl gave Lance a quiet giggle. “I do not know what that means but I like the word. My name is Gligli.” 

Lance smiled again, not even attempting the pronunciation. “Well you are very pretty, what is a girl like you doing in a place like this?” 

Gligli rolled her eyes and sighed “my mother demands I come to these meeting so I understand how alliances work. I rather be doing other things though.”

Lance laughed “same here. Saving the universe is fun and all but sometimes I just want to enjoy the planet not sit through meeting you know?” 

Gligli opened her mouth to respond but was caught of by someone clearing their throat. “Gligli you know better than to talk during these meetings.” 

Gligli lowered her head “I’m sorry mother.” 

Lance swallowed, of course the one girl I talk to is the chief’s daughter. Lance moved away from Gligli and joined his team. 

Lance hadn’t said anything the rest of the meeting and wanted to run when the Chief started to make her way over. She was followed by a shorter male who looked out of breath. 

Shiro thanked her once again for the alliance and she nodded and looked at everyone in front of her. She narrowed her eyes on Lance and made her voice loud and clear for all to hear. “I do hope you control your team, flirting is not a proper thing to do during a meeting. Especially one this important.” 

Lance wanted to hide under her gaze but simply coward back slightly. He knew he messed up, why did she have to bring attention to it. 

Of course she didn’t stop there. “You would think the right leg of Voltron would be mature and not flirting, especially with my daughter. The entire universe is at war and you choose now to try to get lucky?” She pointed one of her fingers directly at Lance. 

Lance lowered his gaze to the ground and prayed no one intervened. He did deserve this after all, he messed up. Lance was just happy that that the alliance was still formed.

Plus Lance was used to being scolded, being the oldest in his family he had to learn all the lessons the hard way. He was used to people pointed out what he did wrong. Lance could handle it, but he couldn’t handle what came next. 

“Yellow Paladin, don’t think I didn’t notice you sleeping half way through the meeting.” She turned her attention towards Hunk. 

Hunk looked at her in panic and turned to Shiro who gave him the ‘my hands are tied face.’ 

Hunk opened his mouth to apologize but the Chief held her hand up to silence him. “I don’t want excuses, if seems that the ‘defenders of the universe’ can’t even handle a simple alliance meeting.” The chief crossed her arms and stared down Hunk, “and falling asleep during a meeting, a very important meeting is n-” 

“OH MY GOD! WET GET IT! THIS MEETING IS SOOOOOO IMPORTANT! Well maybe if the meeting was a bit more entertaining than watching all of you talk through antenas people wouldn’t fall asleep.” Lance inhaled and stood between Hunk and the Chief straightening his back so he stood taller. 

“Lance stop.” Hunk reached to pull his best friend back. 

“No.” Lance shook Hunk off him and pointed at the Chief, hatred filling his eyes. “Listen you can you can yell at me all you want. You can stand there all day and tell me what I need to improve on and I won’t say anything. I know I messed up, I could’ve chosen to not talked to Gligli but I still did. However if you ever and I mean EVER say anything about one of my team member or friend then I have an issue.” 

The Chief looked like a fish out of water and opened her mouth to speak but Lance shut her up. 

“I was torn away from my family in order to fight in this war and sit in boring meetings like this one.“ Lance stopped for a second and wiped his eyes from the tears that formed whenever he thought about his family. “My team has become my family and I will protect and defend my family no matter what. So if you have a problem with that I suggest you end our alliance right now.”  

Lance crossed his arms and stared the Chief down who looked like she had just been slapped. Nobody said anything but after a few minutes the Chief mumbled an apology and walked away from the paladins. 

Lance sighed and turned towards his team, “sorry everyone I get protective over my family.” Lance started to walk towards the Blue Lion. 

Sorry this took me soooooo long! And for changing it slightly! 

I hope you like it!!!!!!

Thank you!!!!!

Also give it up for Lance defending his team! 

POLYAM WEEK: Day Four (OT4+)-Coldflarrowave (Oliver x Leonard x Barry x Mick)

Leonard Snart was born with a gift–an eidetic memory. Unfortunately, that gift was manipulated by his corrupt cop father, Lewis, and used to commit crimes. He didn’t expect his dreams of being a cop to end when he was eighteen and caught breaking-and-entering, while his father got off for the crime. 

So, he left Central City, only returning twenty years later when his father was thrown in prison and his sister asked him to come home. Once he returned, he vowed not to use his abilities for crime. But that doesn’t mean he stopped using it completely–every now and then, he called in tips for money on televised cases he solved from his couch. 

Then, Detective Oliver Queen arrested him as an accomplice in a crime. Thinking fast, Leonard shouted out the first explanation for his knowledge he could think of–he’s psychic. 

He didn’t know that Police Chief Iris West would take him seriously and hire him as consulting psychic detective (which, of course, he dragged his best friend/partner Mick Rory into). He didn’t know that he’d start working with Detective Queen and his adorable, fresh out of blues partner, Detective Barry Allen. 

He didn’t know about the feelings that would develop, finding the people who he trusted with his life on a daily basis, and who trusted him with theirs. 

He didn’t know they’d fall in love.

Badboy!Wonho

Originally posted by garisanee

  • So this is one AU, they all fit together
  • Wonho is Shownu’s best friend
  • They grew up together and have been inseparable ever since First Grade when Wonho saw Shownu sitting alone at lunch and just sat with him and started talking(bragging) about the Yu-Gi-Oh! cards he just won from some other kid
  • He has this stereotypical badboy/player image in high school once he starts dying his hair blue and skipping class 
  • All the girls want him, he’s like this intangible being that just exists in the same place as everyone else and they’re all like ?? how does he exist
  • Rumours about him sleeping around etc
  • Hasn’t really slept with any of these girls(/boys bc some swing that way and would brag about getting some from him, who wouldn’t) but lets them pretend because he doesn’t care enough about what people think of him to correct them (also feeds his ego and he finds it funny)
  • so ‘Monsta x’ is a name the group got which started out as a joke…
  • but …they actually grow to like/use the name
  • Wonho especially, is involved with a lot of … illegal things, to put it lightly
  • Everyone knows that Monsta x is basically a gang so its not a surprise
  • May possibly be currently/have previously been a drug dealer but no one can prove it so …
  • Probably the most badass out of the group, and that’s partially why girls are obsessed with him
  • Knows everyones secrets because he’s more of the acting leader while Shownu acts more of a quiet backbone, so they all come to him with their issues
  • The only one who knows about Changkyun’s family
  • So now onto how he meets you
  • You’re new in town and wow it sucks being the new kid but you just kind of deal with it
  • You’ve moved because your dad is a doctor and he just got offered the position of (temporary) Chief of Medicine at the local hospital because the current CoM is gone for Mat leave
  • But it’s not the first time you guys have moved because of his work so you’re tired of trying to make friends and then having to leave them
  • So you’ve basically decided that you’re not going to even bother, you’ll just stick it out for as long as possible until you guys leave AGAIN
  • You come into class on your first day and have to do the whole introduction thing then take your seat and everyone’s staring at you
  • you catch his attention because you don’t drool all over them the second you walk by them and when the cocky popular girls approach you to try and be friends because you’re cute as heck you just walk past like ‘no thanks ? ya’ll seem bitchy af’
  • and he notices after you introduce yourself to the class, you sit in the furthest seat to the back that’s free and don’t talk to anyone even though the guys (and even some girls) are staring at you
  • Because of his extremely laid back and almost indifferent attitude, Wonho’s known for not really taking any interest in girls, to the point where some guys joked about how he might just be gay (they came to class the next day with a black eye and a busted lip and never spoke of it again)
  • But when you show up and Monsta X notice his eyes linger in your direction for a second too long they start to tease him until his glare shuts them up
  • Minhyuk being the most outgoing one feels bad that you’re sitting alone and not talking to anyone so he goes over to talk to you
  • Kihyun tries to stop him saying that you’re new and his personality is too overwhelming and he should give her time to adjust to the new environment, but it’s too late and he’s already at your desk
  • because you’re on the other side of the room, they can’t hear what you’re saying but all Wonho can focus on is the smile on your face after something Minhyuk said
  • and he’s sure it’s the most beautiful thing he’s ever seen

Good Cop, Bad Cop//Stiles Stilinski

Characters: Stiles Stilinski, Lydia Martin, Reader.

Originally posted by staliasupportsfeminism

“It’s our first day in the field, big deal. It’s not even the actual field..it’s a literal field.” You shrug and look over your shoulder at your best friend Stiles. He adjusts his trainee badge pinned to his belt loop. “I know..I just thought it’d be more exciting.” He says and jogs towards you, walking beside you.

“I bet $20 I make more headshots than you.” You look up at him and smirk.

“Oh, you’re on.” He grins and you two run towards the field. You’re deep in conversation, the two of you building off of each other’s sarcasm.

“Y/L/N! Stilinski! Get over here now!” The chief yells. You both run over and he tosses you both a gun. You catch your and examine it. You glance over at Stiles fumbling with his. He drops it and rubs the back of his neck, the chief rolling his eyes.

“Stilinski.” He grits his teeth and Stiles picks it up immediately. The chief points behind him toward the range.

“I uh-..”

“Now!”

“Yep yep. Going. The range. Going to the range.” Stiles says before jogging towards the range.

“How do you deal with that spastic young man?” The chief asks you.

You shrug. “With a lot of patience and sarcasm.”

He looks deep in thought. “Makes sense. Now get to the range.”

You nod. “Yes, sir.” You walk over to where Stiles is standing.

“Thanks for making me deal with that.” You whisper and he smiles.

“Oh you’re definitely welcome.” He says quickly as he loads his gun.

You cringe and step back. “Stiles, be careful.”

“What? I know what I’m doing.” He waves the gun around as he talks.

“Stilinski. Watch it!” You yell as you duck to avoid the gun being aimed at you.

He squints at you. “Yeah..” He sighs as he put the safety back on. “I’ll be careful.”

“You trying to kill me?” You laugh and open your arms.

“I mean…I’d kill for you.” He smiles.

“Like, I’d kill someone for you or like ‘man I’d kill to go on a date with her.” You smirk.

“The latter..but if you want the truth, I’d do either?”

“You ain’t clownin’?” You grin, his face lighting up as you say your inside joke.

“I ain’t clownin’.” he laughs. “But honestly, I’d kill to go on a date with you.”

“Technically, you and I are partners so we’re always on a date.” You throw your hands up.

“Yeah..I guess you’re right. Considering we live together too.”

“Yeah..” You say, scratching your chin playfully. “I’d have to say we’re on a perpetual first date.”

After the field work you and Stiles head home.

You unlock the door and walk in. “I desperately need a shower.” You sigh, putting your keys on the counter.

“Dibs!” Stiles shouts, shoving past you, he runs to his room to grab a towel.

“No!” You chase after him, taking a sharp turn into the bathroom. You look the door and smirk to yourself.

He knocks on the door. “Y/N, come on. I called dibs.”

You were already peeling your shirt off. “You can’t call dibs on something I suggested. For myself.”

“Pleaaaaaase….” He whines.

You unbutton your pants and take them off, adding them to the pile of clothes in the corner.

“No. Leave me alone.”

You hear him sigh. You’re going to have to go back to your room wet and naked, but what’s a girl to do when her shower’s being threatened? You step under the water, the hot stream on your back making you sigh with relief. Your banter with Stiles always made you think he had a thing for you, even though he never acted upon it. He had endless opportunities and never even tried.

You step out, squeezing the water out of your hair before unlocking the door. You step out, looking both ways for Stiles before running across the hall to your room. You hear him talking to a girl in the living room.

“Hey, Y/N?” He yells.

“What?” You respond, already drying your hair with a towel.

“Did you just run across the hall naked?” He says. You can hear the smirk on his lips.

“Possibly. Maybe. Yeah…why?” You feel your cheeks heat up.

“Just thought I’d check.”

You get dressed and come out, a red-haired girl sitting on the couch with Stiles. She has her hand on his leg, smiling at him.

“There’s the naked lady of the hour!” Stiles laughs.

“Shut up. If I’d have gotten a towel like you I wouldn’t have gotten my shower.” You sit in the recliner and cover with a blanket.

He chuckles and looks to the girl. “Lydia, this is Y/N Y/L/N. Y/N, this is Lydia Martin.”

You lean forward and shake hands with her. “You’re the Lydia Martin. Wow.” You smile. “You’re a living legend according to Stiles.”

She laughs. “According to everyone.”

The three of you sit and talk for awhile before you decide to head to bed. You felt weirdly sad. She had a lot of interest in him and he always talked about how great she was. Maybe he still has a thing for her.

You groan loudly and fall into your bed. You lie there for what feels like hours, trying not to think about Stiles.

You hear footsteps out your door and you try to listen. “That’s her?” You hear Lydia say.

“Yeah…just please don’t say anything. Okay? I just..I don’t want to screw this up.” You hear Stiles respond.

“My lips are sealed.”

You don’t hear anything else besides Stiles’ bedroom door opening and closing. You get out of bed and go to the living room. You throw your hair up in a bun and turn a movie on, eventually falling asleep.

You’re awoken by Stiles’ soft voice, his hand caressing your cheek. He’d covered you with a blanket when he woke up. You fluttered your eyes opened and looked at him, immediately squinting when you saw the light pouring in from the window.

“You look adorable.” He smiles.

“God, what time is it?” You sit up and sigh.

“We have to be at school in 30 minutes.” Stiles looks at the clock.

“What? Why didn’t you get me up earlier?” You jump off the couch.

“You looked peaceful.” He shrugs and you run to your room, rushing to get ready.

Stiles pokes his head in your room as you button up your shirt. “Is it okay if Lydia stays here while we’re gone?”

You shake your head and walk out, grabbing your keys. “Nope that’s fine.”

You both go out to the car and go to school. You’re back out on the field again. You run through the same routine before going to the lounge to change.

Stiles is scratching his arm viciously.

“Stop, you’ll draw blood.” You look at him over your shoulder.

“It itches. I think something’s wrong.” He continues to scratch.

You examine his arm. There’s welps up his forearm.

He looks down at them and grimaces. “Oh God…just cut it off. It’ll help.”

“Stiles, it’s a mosquito bite.” You deadpan.

“I just wanted one of those cool robot arms.” He sighs as he scratches.

You pull his hand away and rub the spot for him, making him groan. Which, in turn turns you on just a bit. You continue to rub his arm. “You’re serious? Well, where would you even get one?”

He looks at you adoringly, thankful for your help. “There’s this guy on Craigslist.” He shrugs.

“You’re such a dork.” You laugh. “Let’s get you home, I’ll put cortisone on it.” You smile.

You head home and you go inside, straight to the bathroom. You return with the cortisone. Stiles smiles and rolls his sleeve up.

You’re rubbing it on his arm when Lydia walks in. “How was school?” She smiles.

Stiles answers and you close the lid to the cream, pulling his sleeve down. “Better?” You look up at him.

He nods. “Thank you. I was legitimately hoping we could cut it off though.”

“Oh, I know. Trust me, I know you very well.” You smile and turn, putting the cream down.

He smiles at you, a look in his eyes that makes your stomach twist in excitement. “Thank you. I really mean that.”

“Not to uh…burst your little thankful bubble..but, I just put anti-itch cream on a mosquito bite.” You laugh, feeling your cheeks heat up. Why were you blushing?

“I know.” He flicks his eyes over to Lydia and she smirks.

Later that night you’re spread out on the couch with Stiles, your legs in his lap. “So…you and Lydia?” You raise an eyebrow at him. It’s better to know about them now rather than later.

“What about us?” He rubs his hand on your leg.

“Do you still have a thing for her?”

He laughs. “God no.”

“Well…she seems to be into you, so I thought…” You pull the blanket you two are sharing up around your shoulders.

“I’m gay.” Lydia walks into the room, a smile on her face.

“Oh…Stiles had said you guys were a thing.”

“Yeah, we were. I’d been with a lot of guys to convince myself I was straight but when I met Stiles’ ex-girlfriend I’d kinda decided to embrace it.”

You nod. “Ex-girlfriend?” You look at him.

“She’s talking about Malia. I’ve told you about her. They’ve been dating for about a year.”

“That means you turned two girls gay.” Lydia laughs as she sits with the two of you.

You laugh. “God, that has to be a record. Not only did you turn two girls gay, but they’re dating each other.”

Stiles rolls his eyes. “They were in love before I even dated Malia. Besides, you aren’t gay are you?” He smiles and lifts you up, pulling you onto his lap.

“Last time I checked, no.” You look into his eyes.

“Hey, I called for Chinese, I’m going to see if they’re here.” Lydia gets up and exits through the front door.

“Y/N…” Stiles smiles and pushes your hair out of your face.

You lean into his hand. “Yeah?”

“I’m in love with you.” He whispers.

Your heart flutters and you grin. “I’m in love with you too.”

He presses his lips to yours before leaning back. “Remember that bet about headshots?”

“Yeah?” You smile.

“You still owe me 20 bucks.” He kisses you again, making you giggle.

anonymous asked:

May i place a request? What if the chocobros s/o during the ten years going missing, but after the dawn the boys discovered a Moogle Village protected by a magical barrier for keeping deamons at bay and they find out their s/o have lived here as a member of the tribe and healer but the moogle are reluctant to send them away? (They get attached to them, poor creatures)

Aww, I haven’t seen a Moogle in so long! Super cute! Moogles are like my third favorite FF mascot!

~~~~~

“Are you sure this is the right way?” Prompto asked, as they moved through the waist high water.

It felt almost surreal that they were traveling together, all of them, for the first time in 10 years. With Insomnia being rebuilt and Noctis to take the throne by the end of the month, was it a good idea for them to be going through this old cave system in search of possibly a false lead?

“Iris, mention there was a lot of strange activity here and that most hunters who come through this way are often confused and led astray.” Ignis replied.

“What do you say Your Highness, should we keep going or turn around?” Gladiolus inquired.

“We’ve come this far,” Noctis stated, his hand resting on the cave wall, only to gasp.

Before them was a village, straw huts, tropical fruit trees and what appeared to be Moogles, hundreds, upon hundreds of Moogles. On an island in the middle of the lake, a crystal clear lake that looked to have been protected from the years of darkness. Stepping closer, they found a barrier a soft shimmering barrier.

Focusing the magic of the King the barrier allowed them through, as they moved toward the island. The Moogles stopped what they were doing, as they stared at the new trespassers, clearly standing out in their blacks upon the light pinks and whites of their kind. Yet the barrier let them in, they were not deamon, maybe they were friends of the Lady Healer?

Noctis nearly stumbled as he felt something tug on his cape, before noticing a Moogle was tugging him in a different direction. Turning to the others as he noticed they were surrounded as well.

“I believe they are trying to tell us something.” Ignis stated, “Shall we see where they lead us?”

Noctis nodded, “All right lead the way.”

The small floating creatures moved them through the village towards a large hut, much, much larger than the others.  One of the Moogles quickly rushed in, before they heard a female voice.

“What’s wrong, what’s wrong?” They called, before the body appeared before the door, a gasp fell from their lips, as they stared ahead. “Oh my gods.”

masterlist


I don’t want to hurt you
But I have to tell you now

The room was filled with nothing but silence. The sight of Hyungwon staring at you with eyes black as orbs was too much for you to take. His eyes have lost the twinkle that you used to love, his thick, lush lips were pursed into a thin line, and his listless limbs hanged on his sides. “Please, don’t do this to us, Hyungwon.” You pleaded with eyes glistening with tears. Everything was going too fast for you to comprehend, and here you are, holding on to his hands that didn’t even bother returning the grasp that you were used to.

It’s not easy to hide my heart
I know you feel deceived, I’m trying to end it

Hyungwon may look unfazed by the tears on your eyes, threatening to fall anytime soon. “[y/n], let go of me.” Wincing at his choice of words, you shook your head and tightened your grip around his hand. “No..” You couldn’t bring yourself to let your lover walk out of this relationship just because of something that you, yourself, couldn’t bring to believe. He was the only person that you have and yet, there he was, just like the rest of them, he was going to leave you.

You used to smile brightly but now I’m gonna make you cry for the last time
Everything changes like morning becoming night

“Damn it! Just let go of me, will you?! Us? The ‘us’ was long gone, [y/n]! It died three months ago and I’ve had enough of this!” This was the very first time that Hyungwon has raised his voice at you. Staring at the person right in front of you, you couldn’t help but think that this isn’t the Hyungwon that you used to love. He isn’t the Hyungwon who made your heart beat so fast, butterflies going wild after being freed from their cage. Crack. You let out a gasp as you could feel your heart shatter into thousands of pieces, tears finally spilling out. Tears that were long hated by Hyungwon has finally come out. Looking away from you, Hyungwon takes a deep breath and pries your hands off of him one last time before walking past you with his luggage with him. 

“But I still love you, Hyungwon, I still do! Am I not enough for you? Hyungwon… please don’t leave me.” you cry out, hands frantically trying to take a hold of his shirt. Coming to an abrupt stop, Hyungwon heaves out a sigh and lets out the words that you’ve dreaded to hear slip pass through his own.

“But… I don’t love you anymore.” And with that, he takes his leave with nothing but lies filling his mind. He knew that he had to do this. He knew he had to do this the harsh way. He knew that this day had to come. He knew that his feelings had long perished when he didn’t see the spark between the two of you. He knew that he didn’t want to receive your love anymore.

When that night passes, just like another day repeats
That feeling comes to me every day like waking up in the morning

How long has it been? Two weeks? Two months? You don’t know. It hasn’t been long since Hyungwon left you like a shattered bottle that was just thrown away. Lifting yourself off from the blissful warmth of your bed sheets, you listlessly dragged your tired limbs to the kitchen and grabbed a glass of water, only to be remembered of that night once more. 

The way Hyungwon just let those words out of his mouth, as if the two of you didn’t share any memory and affection with each other for the past two years. The way how his eyes didn’t seem to care when he saw you cry your heart out. The way how he just continued to walk out of your life when you, yourself, begged him to stay. 

Ever since that night, you were a living mess. Heart torn into pieces, mind filled with nothing but negativity, and tears constantly brimming down your cheeks. You called off from the office for a week and only had to quit when you knew you just couldn’t handle it anymore. You shut yourself from everyone else.

Heaving out a sigh, you carefully placed the glass in the sink and made your way back to your room and into the bathroom, washing yourself up to have yourself prepped for the work that you’ve been passionate about for the first time.

“I am strong… I am beautiful… I am enough.” you chanted your mantra, eyes focused on your own reflection. Soon enough, you’ve found peace in you, heart swelling with happiness and confidence and you couldn’t ask anything more of this beautiful mantra that brought you back to your feet.

“I can do this.” 

That feeling comes to me every day like waking up in the morning
So I’m gonna erase you completely, I’m sorry

“Hyung, who’s this lady in your wallet?” Changkyun curiously asked as he fumbles with the brown leather in his hands, eyes intently staring at the picture of you and Hyungwon during the very first lover’s getaway that the two of you had. “Nobody.” Swiftly taking the picture off Changkyun’s grasp, Hyungwon didn’t think twice but to rip the picture apart and threw it directly in the basket, just like how he threw away his feelings away for you.

“W-why did you throw that away, hyung? I know for sure that that picture held a deep meaning in your life!” Changkyun frantically searched for the torn picture and shot his older brother a look before stuffing the found pieces in his pocket. “It doesn’t anymore.” Hyungwon’s voice was nothing but cold. When he stepped foot out of that damned apartment of yours, he has long deemed to himself that you were no one but a stranger to his life now.

Changkyun knew that you were someone of significance to him, that had long been forgotten by someone like him. Grumbling to himself, he watches the older lad walk towards other members with that facade he always put up front. 

Muttering to himself, he pulls out the picture of the two of you and sighs.“The look of their eyes says so the otherwise. Oh well..” Changkyun walks back to the older lad as he places the picture back to his pockets, promising to put it back together once they go home.

I was so happy looking at you all day, every day
I was so happy listening to your stories
I guess time is up now

“So, [y/n], you have to hear this. I just saw Miki talking to Kyujin, and man, you could see the twinkle in their eyes! I bet they’re going to last long!” your co-worker, and now best friend, Jia beamed with eyes filled with fantasies that were far for her to reach. “Really? That’s great for them.” you flashed them a fake smile and transferred your attention back to the pile of pictures that you were going to submit to the Chief Executive. As you were busy shuffling the pictures hand, you could help but freeze when you saw the photo that you took years ago with Hyungwon, who’s curled up into a blanket, arms outstretched towards you, hurrying you up as he was already itching to hear about your day.

“Baby, hurry up! You have to tell me about your photoshoot awhile ago.” Hyungwon beams as you positioned your camera right at him and had set the timer. “Wait, a minute baby. I need to–” Before you could even fully set your camera up, you were yanked towards his arms, a big smile plastered on his face and before you knew it, the camera had captured such precious moment. “Baby,” you cooed as you tried to wiggle yourself out from his hold. “So, how was it? Did you have fun?” Hyungwon snuggled a lot closer to you, his face pressed on your cheeks, making you burst out giggling. “Oh glob, Chae Hyungwon, I love you so so much!” you gleefully squealed as you gave him a chaste kiss before telling him your day went.

I guess we’re the same as others
Now even when you’re telling me interesting stories, I’m only nodding

His eyes were always filled with interest whenever you arrived from work. He was utterly happy when you told him about everything, may it be what’s going through your mind, your work or how you’re feeling. But somehow, all of those disappeared. His eyes were no longer showing any signs of interest. Head just nodding from time to time, as if his mind was drifting off to somewhere else more interesting than you. 

As days went by, the Hyungwon that always asked you how your day was was slowly disappearing. With a simple ‘welcome back’ to nothing but silence. He wouldn’t even glance at you as he continued watching the tv show that he was currently watching or would even just shrug you off when you tried to wake him up.

Hello, earth to [y/n]?” Jia waved her hand in your face, only to snap you out from your train of thoughts. “H-huh, what was that?” you absentmindedly asked as you tried to recall what just happened. “Mr. Bang wants to see you.” Jia worriedly looks at you, eyes observing every single movement that you made. It has been the nth time you’ve spaced out and entered that little world of yours. Oh, if only she knew what was going through your mind, she would try her best to help you out. Watching your retreating figure, Jia glances down and takes the photo in her hands, only to realize that it was a picture of you and Hyungwon.

Oh ah, I loved you more than anyone else
You were the most beautiful girl in the universe

Loneliness then again visits Hyungwon. In a room with nothing but the moon, as it’s the only source of light, the glint of a ring had Hyungwon’s attention. Carefully tucked in between his fingers held a silver ring that once reminded him of how much he loved you and how much you’ve meant a lot to him. You were once his sea as he was the boy who loved the waves and had finally overcome his fear of swimming. 

Your beauty shone despite the activity that you did. The mesmerizing smile of yours would always light up his way, sending him into the abyss. Whenever compared to someone else, he could remember himself denying the fact that there was someone more beautiful than you. You were nothing compared to the rest of those women. Heart and mind as pure as yours was enough to be called as a beauty.

Tracing the initials on the ring, Hyungwon couldn’t help but laugh at how petty it was for him to not be able to throw such thing as if it there was someone or something that held him back. It was as if it was something to commemorate such beautiful love blossoming through the spring, a reminder of that time when you’ve finally become his. The muse of his life. 

What exactly happened to me?
I wanna turn back time

“Here you go, hyung. I taped it back together.” standing before him was his younger brother, arms outstretched with a picture held in between his fingertips, something that made his heart flutter. With his long, slender fingers accepting such thing, Hyungwon couldn’t help but look at Changkyun with eyes glinted with confusion. “Why are you doing this?” 

Flashing the older lad a smile, Changkyun gives Hyungwon a soft pat on the shoulder before leaving the room. In between his fingers laid a beautiful memory that you both once cherished. With his cheeks tightly pressed on to yours, a happy and profound smile crossed both of your faces. Arms tightly wrapped around each other as if both of your life depended on it. 

With his eyes fixated on your smile, Hyungwon couldn’t help but question himself. Why? he asked. You said you didn’t love her anymore, replied his heart. But.. what was the reason behind it? Why did you stop beating for her? And there it was, an answer that had him wishing to go back in time and stop himself. 

I never did, it was just you who made such decision all along.

I see you over there, arrived first
With a bright smiling face
The fastly rewinding times with you
Have stopped now

The sliding of the glass door had everyone’s attention at the door, except for you, who was busy talking to the Chief. Lips turned into a big smile, a melodious laugh leaving your lips, filling the air with such glee. “Oh, [y/n], I want to meet your new clients.”

Everything went slow-mo, the way your wavy lock gracefully sliding down you shoulders, your beautiful eyes meeting his gaze and your lips losing its smile. “MONSTA X.” 

“It’s nice to meet you, guys.” You gently smiled and shook each of their hands, despite having to meet the gaze of Hyungwon. “Have you ever heard of them, [y/n]?” The Chief asked with a proud smile on his face. With your eyes looking back at them, you shook your head and apologetically smiled, “I’m so sorry, but I haven’t.” 

Lies, Hyungwon thought with his eyes glued on to the smile that held a lot of hidden feelings. “Anyways, before we could start the photoshoot, I want you boys to look at the pictures that our [y/n] has captured.” Pictures of different people, animals and sceneries were shown, except for one picture that was held in between your hands. “And the last–”

“Uh, this is nothing Chief. I kind of mixed it up with these pictures.” you lied as you pulled the picture away from him, only to receive a knowing smile from the Chief. “Is that so? Then will you please tell us what that picture is about that you aren’t able to show it to us?”

I’m looking at it again and my frozen heart is melting
You
were my spring but I pushed you away

At some point, the atmosphere seemed to waver towards such a depressing turn. “It’s just a picture of my lover and me when were still both madly in love with each other.” There was sadness in your eyes but your lips said otherwise. It held a happy smile. A smile that seemed to send a pang in Hyungwon’s heart. “But anyways, all of those flowery feelings are long gone, as we’ve separated ways.” 

“But, [y/n], I think that shot might be beautiful.” Changkyun reasoned out, eyes almost as pleading. “I think so too…” The Chief chimed in. Taking a quick glance to each of their eyes, you couldn’t help but let out a soft chuckle. “But the content is far from beautiful.” 

“Why?” Finally, Hyungwon decided to speak up, heart yearning to hear what you’ve felt throughout the past months. Your glistening eyes then met his, only to finally hear his heart crack. 

“Because it’s like the boy who loved the waves, but was too scared to swim… once he realized that the waves weren’t meant for him, it had him walking away from the sea and forgetting about his love for those waves.” 

I left you all alone when you were so kind
Just when I started regretting, you held my hand and said
I waited for along time, hurry and come

“But despite having that boy walking out from her life, the sea still hoped that maybe one day, he would return and make her life colorful again, but for now… the sea still continues to make her tranquil waves the same. ” you muttered as you stared at the photo in between your hands. Startled to have the picture taken away from, your eyes snapped towards him, who’s eyes slowly being filled with tears. 

“You still kept this picture despite what happened?” Hyungwon’s voice was soft as his eyes trailed along every single detail there was in the picture. Changkyun, who was beside him, took a quick glance at the photo, only to have him staring at you with eyes wide open, a finger or two pointing directly at you.

With your eyebrows furrowed, you swiftly grabbed the picture away from Hyungwon and decided to just show it to everyone, revealing such past to seven people whom you barely knew. “Is that… you and Hyungwon?” The Chief’s voice trailed off as he searched for your eyes, hoping that you’d answer truthfully.

“Yes.” 

“Why did you still keep it?” Kihyun queries as he stares at you with eyes filled with curiosity. “Honestly,” you thought about it. Why in the world would you keep such picture? Glancing back at the picture, a smile crosses your lips as you speak, “I really don’t know. I just couldn’t bring myself to forget about it.” 

“It’s a memory that I wouldn’t want to trade it for anything… despite having my heart crushed.”

Today, you’re the same as yesterday, only I’m different
(I think I’m crazy, I was deceived by familiarity and let you go)

Everyone couldn’t help but send you a sad look. It was something that they’ve never expect to hear from you. “Are you angry at Hyungwon for leaving you?” Wonho interrogates despite receiving a couple of smacks from the others. It never really bothered Wonho though, as he wants the two of you to clear things up. 

“Me?” you return the question, a finger pointing at yourself. “I was at first but I realized that I couldn’t blame him. I was no God to control anyone’s feelings and mind. If he doesn’t love me, then he doesn’t love me anymore. I kind of like accepted it so I’m not angry at Hyungwon. I would rather be thankful to have met a guy like him rather than be bitter and be loathful about it.”

Pang. Hyungwon couldn’t bring himself to look at you. He was filled with nothing but guilt and shame. Just hearing the way you spoke made him realize that you haven’t changed- you were still the person who had captured everyone’s heart with your beauty and pureness. 

I really didn’t know I’d have these feelings
(Actually, it’s just momentary, I just wanted you to melt me)

“Hyungwon hyung, what can you say about that?” Jooheon asks as he transfers his attention to Hyungwon, who just had his small bubble pop. Silence immediately surfaced, hearts were pounding loudly against their ribcages, hoping to hear something worth it from the tall man, who had his gaze fixated on you. 

“What if I told you that… I still love you?”

Should I be honest?
(It doesn’t make sense, trying to let go of all that time)

The moment those words left his lips, you could feel your breath hitch. You were emotionally fine just a moment ago but now, you couldn’t explain what you were feeling. A gush of emotions came rushing in and you just couldn’t understand why he was doing this. “What?” you gawked at him, heart beating rapidly and the butterflies have finally been freed.

“I still love you.”

Should I be honest?
Don’t be surprised, I’m gonna make you cry

Overwhelmed by Hyungwon’s sudden confession had you tearing up. Hands shaking as you held tightly onto the picture, eyes never leaving his. The corner of his lips was tugged upwards into a loving smile. His outreached hand soon met yours, making you melt under his touch.

Oh how long have you yearned for him, his touch and everything. “I was a crazy for leaving you back then without any reason,” said Hyungwon as he slowly pursed his lips, eyes filled with regret and sincerity. “Honestly, my heart never stopped beating for you.”

“H-hey, don’t cry.” startled by everyone’s remark, you looked at them and patted your cheeks, only to have them wet with tears that have spilled without you realizing it. “Oh god… I’m so sorry.” you stuttered, accepting the tissue being offered by Minhyuk. 

Should I be honest?
(Without knowing anything, your eyes are filled with me)

Finally taking your hands in his, you couldn’t help but stare at him with your lips quivering as you tried to hold back the tears. “I love you, [y/n]… I really do…” His voice was soft yet calming, the grip around your hands tightened as he could feel a lump in his throat.

“I really am sorry, [y/n], for everything. For being a jerk. For being a fool… and for leaving you. I know I sound really stupid and all but… Just last night when I saw our ring, I couldn’t help but wonder why I never had the guts to throw it away and that’s when I realized it…. my heart never really stopped beating for you.

You didn’t dare to look away. He was the only one that you needed to see. 

Should I be honest?
You’re smiling like a fool

“[y/n]…” Hyungwon’s voice trailed off as he took a deep breath, “Honestly… I want you to be mine again…. will you give me another chance to prove myself to you?” 

Nodding your head, you let out a soft chuckle. “Yes.” It didn’t really take you that long to decide as you knew that your heart was still beating for him, no one else but him. Pulling you into a tight hug, a big smile was plastered on both of your faces. Sweet nothings were whispered on both of your ears, filling each other with words that both of your hearts have longed to say. Howls and cheers were heard from the boys and the Chief, which had the two of you pulling away to give them an apologetic look.

You guys do know that the two of you are smiling like fools right? But anyways, stay strong you two!”
