Lip Biting

Pairing: Y/N/Luke

Rating: NC-17

Request: No

Words: 2.000+

Summary: Luke loves biting his lip out of habit and that is, according to some, the biggest turn on to date. 

“Stop.”

“What?” He innocently questioned and looked up at you with his oceanic eyes that showed nothing else but what his tone was hinting at.

Of course he knew what he was doing.

I wish you would write a fic where Bernie doesn't go to to Kiev but she pulls the breaks on her relationship with Serena, thinking Serena doesn't really know what she wants. Things get tense and then Robbie comes back. (Whether Serena sleeps with him or not would be up to you.) And when Serena tells him there's someone else... Bernie overhears it.

Bernie doesn’t go to Ukraine, in the end.  Gets as far as her car, rests her head against the steering wheel and calls herself a coward, gets back out and practically runs to Hanssen’s office to tell him she’s changed her mind.  He asks her if she’s sure, reminds her again what an excellent opportunity this would be, how well it would suit her.  She thinks of Serena and tells him that yes, she is.

Fight For You. (Tom Holland.)

Requested – No. I am deeply sorry that I don’t do requests that often. 

Prompt – Tom is part of an underground boxing club and he fights your ex-boyfriend because your ex was talking crap about you.

Warning – Fighting. But let’s be real, Tom fighting would be hot. Also this is complete shit.

Words – 1,305.

Requests?

Underground boxing is for those who want to start off small and practice until they hit the big leagues. Boxing was a way of life for the boxers underground and that was how they are able to pay off their debts. The thought of knocking out someone and getting paid for it thrilled them. The most popular boxers were the ones who made the most money and got the most recognition. Everyone wanted to make it to the top and was willing to do anything to get the title.

Luna sighs as she sits next to her, sadness lingering on it and making Nina look up to her instantly.

“What happened?” She asks to her friend and Luna looks down, biting her lip.

“I’m leaving.” She says and adds nothing more, making Nina frown.

“Leaving?” She asks confused and Luna sends her a meaningful look.

“Leaving, leaving Nina.” Luna mumbles and her voice breaks in Nina’s name.

Elixirs 101

For @mewringo13

Link was sure that Zelda had seen him injured before. They had all sorts of adventures even prior Ganon’s return, hadn’t they? Why was she so shocked now? Of course, as he laid there clutching his leg - which was very obviously broken - the girl was fretting about as if he was dying all over again.

“It’s fine!”

“It’s completely broken! I need to find you some sort of remedy, there has to be something that can fix that,” Zelda replied desperately, and as she looked at Link, he could tell she was trying to keep her eyes on his and not on his injury.

“Zelda, I spent so much time messing around with elixirs when I was all alone… I never found anything that immediately fixed a broken bone,” Link complained, “you just have to wait a little bit… or I can just try and pop it into place…” he added, somewhat distracted as he gingerly removed one of his hands and peeked into the wound of his bloodied leg.

Zelda let out a yelp, hands flying to her face. The girl could spend a century fighting an immense chaotic evil, but apparently a broken bone was enough to completely mess with her nerves.

Plans Change

Request: 15 & jackson got7

15)  You LITERALLY run into your bias.

Member: Got7′s Jackson x Y/N

Type: fluff

Comment: I have a kind of similar prompt with Jackson here as well, if you’re interested in reading! ^.^


I struggled to keep up with the large golden retriever pulling me down the sidewalk. My feet stumbled over each other as he plowed through bystanders, children, other animals, all the while wagging his tail. 

“Yah, Mosby!” I yelled, already out of breath. “Slow down!” 

Like he could even begin to understand me. I cursed at myself as I continued my embarrassing jog. Mosby belonged to my elderly neighbor, Mrs. Kim, who had sprained her ankle and could no longer take Mosby on his regular morning walks. The thought had occurred to me, considering that Mosby was about as old as Mrs. Kim in dog years, that maybe, a short, slow walk would suffice around the block, but nothing could quench his hunger for adventure. We had taken about fifteen turns and I no longer recognized the area we were in. I was hopelessly holding on to the idea that he would get tired and need to take a break eventually, giving me enough time to pound my address back into google maps to find our way home, but that time had not come. For now, I was under Mosby’s complete control. 

I wiped at the sweat accumulating on my brow and groaned at the feeling traveling up my calves. Admittedly, I wasn’t much for physical fitness, and considered this to be the universe’s way of getting back at me for all of the nights I spent lounged on the couch, watching Netflix. 

“Aish!” a deep voice groaned before me. I was so lost in the burning coursing through my muscles, that I had completely disregarded the young man barreling out of the shop directly to my right. He became a blur of body and leash as he stumbled over the thick chord of Mosby’s lead and careened toward my aching body. I screeched as we both landed with a thud on the pavement. 

“Yah!” I groaned, slowly opening my eyes that I hadn’t even realized I had closed. Mosby’s doggy breath hit me heavy in my senses as he peppered quick kisses on my cheeks, whining as I began to grumble. 

“Mosby, off, Mosby!” I gasped, pushing at his yellow mane. I slowly sat up as the man I had collided with did the same beside me. He shook his head quickly and patted his cheek. He looked at me with glazed eyes, which immediately widened. 

“Oh my god!” he shouted. He swiveled around to balance on his knees as he leaned nearly an inch away from my face, covered in doggy drool. “Are you okay? I was in such a hurry I didn’t even see you…and your dog! Is he okay? Oh my god, kill me now if I hurt your dog.” 

“I think we’re fine,” I sighed, giving Mosby a quick once over. He was far enough ahead to where I don’t think he incurred much damage, maybe a quick tug to his harness, but nothing too terrible. Fresh tears stung my eyes as I looked down to my hands, battered and bloody from catching me in the fall. I made an internal note to get my tear ducts separated from literally all emotions in my body. No matter if I was hurt, scared, or simply frustrated, tears would begin brimming on my lashes. 

“Are you going to cry? Please don’t cry!” The man said desperately, looking down to my hands. “Oh my god, let me help you up.”

I groaned as he took my stinging hands into his. He immediately retracted them and glanced at me carefully, grabbing under my arms instead and lifting me. He helped me ease down onto the bench placed in front of the shop he had came from. 

“I’m Jackson, I know you probably don’t care right now and just wish I would leave you alone, but let me see if they have bandaids!” he said in one quick breath. I looked the stranger up and down, slowly taking him in for the first time. He had blonde hair pushed back from his face and hidden beneath a cap. he wore a black tank top and black jeans. He was incredibly handsome and I suddenly felt very aware of my sweaty and disheveled appearance. 

“I’m Y/N,” I nodded in a near whisper. 

“Nice to meet you Y/N, well not nice…like the circumstances aren’t nice, but you are, so I’m going to get bandaids,” he nodded, another large amount of word vomit flooding from his mouth. 

I watched as Jackson disappeared into the shop again and began shuffling amongst the isles. I turned back around to Mosby who waddled to meet me at the bench, plopping down on the hot pavement. I ran my hand absently along his coat, careful to keep the injured areas away from his blonde fur. The last thing Mrs. Kim needed was a blood stained dog returned to her. 

After a few moments, Jackson came flying out of the store again, a bag in hand. 

“Oh good, you didn’t leave,” he breathed, crouching down beside Mosby. He dug through the bag carefully, pulling out a bottled water. He unscrewed the lid and handed it gently to me. “Drink.”

I nodded, grateful for the cool bottle in my hands. I took a few sips and nearly spluttered with a choke as Jackson pulled out another bottle of water and proceeded to pour it into a small container he had also materialized with. He placed the bowl in front of Mosby and ran a hand through his fur. 

“Sorry buddy,” he said calmly, scrubbing Mosby behind the ears. “I didn’t mean to scare you or your mom.”

“Actually,” I sighed, wiping my mouth with the back of my arm. “It’s my neighbor’s dog…she’s kind of old and she injured her leg…but he still needed his walk.”

Jackson lifted his eyebrows as he continued to dig through his bag. He pulled out a small first aid kit and began picking items out of it. “Pretty and a saint,” he chuckled. “You keep getting better.”

I felt my cheeks grow hot with embaressment as Jackson took my hand gingerly into his. He took out an alcohol pad and dabbed carefully at my palm. 

“Aish!” I hissed, wincing. 

“Sorry, I should have mentioned it was going to burn…but then again I’ve never done this for someone else. Jinyoung did it for me once…and it hurt pretty badly, but oh! then he did this!” Jackson said quickly, completing his sentence by breathing cool air onto the areas he had dabbed. 

I unclenched my fingers and nodded as the stinging began to subside. 

“Better?” Jackson said quietly, looking up at me through his lashes. 

“Better,” I nodded. He smiled proudly to himself as he dug around in the kit again and found what looked to be some sort of antibiotic cream and gauze. He wrapped my palm carefully and methodically, leaning back only once his work was done. 

“What do you think?” he asked, lifting his brows. “Pretty good for a novice.”

“Exceptional,” I nodded, tilting my hand in several different ways to analyze his patch work. “But you didn’t have to do this.”

“Oh, yes I did!” he gasped, picking up the trash he had acquired and stuffed it back into the bag. “I nearly killed you.”

“Mmm, that may be a bit dramatic,” I chuckled. “I’m fine.”

“Let me buy you lunch,” Jackson said, standing. A nervous smile danced across his lips, causing my heart to quickly flutter. 

“You’ve done enough, really,” I nodded, avoiding eye contact. I couldn’t handle how attractive he was. I could barely look at him now, let alone sit across a lunch table from him for who knows how long. “You don’t have to feel obligated-”

“I don’t feel obligated to do anything,” he chuckled, offering his hand to help me up. “I’m offering because I want to.”

I took his hand gratefully and groaned as I attempted forward motion. “I really have to get Mosby home,” I winced. At the mention of his name, Mosby sprung up, at the ready, and attempted to pull me forward again.

“I’ll help you,” Jackson nodded quickly, taking Mosby’s leash from my hands. “Theres no way you can have him drag you back a few blocks in your condition.”

“I think it’s more like five blocks,” I groaned, wiping sweat from my forehead again. “Yah, I don’t really know. I just know we’ve been walking awhile.”

“Let’s get Mosby home,” Jackson smiled, letting the old dog begin to tug him in the direction in which we came. “Then you can let me really make this whole thing up to you.”

I shuffled behind Jackson and sighed, already coming to terms with the man’s made up mind. “I thought you were in a hurry to get somewhere?” I asked. “Isn’t this how all of this happened?”

“Plans change,” Jackson smiled back at me. “I’m in a general hurry most of the time even when I don’t need to be. Really I should be thanking you for slowing me down. I forget to do that sometimes.”

“Well technically Mosby’s leash is what slowed you down,” I laughed. “I was just there to help cushion the fall.”

“I can’t say it was completely unpleasant,” he chuckled, stomping behind Mosby, trying to slow the old dog’s hurried pace. “I got to meet you after all.”

anonymous asked:

Really like your blog for emphasising the power couple. I've recently noticed how similar Damian x Raven from Justice League vs Teen Titans is to RivaMika (serious/stoic personalities, loss of family, their bloodlines, and even their height differences). So I'm wondering if you know of any other ships that are as deep and interesting as these two pairings? (Cause maybe it'd help out if RivaMika hits an iceberg or theres something else to occupy us with between plot progressions?)

Oooooh, anon. ANON! anonanonanonanon! Thank you!

I couldn’t have asked for a better… ask question! 

Now I can make some recs AND talk about Rivamika IN THE SAME POST.

Let us begin.

1. RoyAi (Roy Mustang x Riza Hawkeye - Full Metal Alchemist)

I’ve shipped these two ever since I first watched the old anime back in 2004 and, 10+ years and a new series later, they’re still hugely popular to this day. Hiromu Arakawa (the author) KNOWS how to write a subtle ship in a way that leaves the fans begging for more. One of the most famous “implied canon” ships ever.

- The story takes place in a military setting reminiscent of the early 1900′s. He is her Colonel and she is his Lieutenant (^q^ )

- Their histories are deeply woven together, even before their military career.

- They’re both among the best in their respective battle prowesses (alchemy / sharpshooting), and their abilities complement each other in and out of battle. They trust each other with their life. They’re DEVOTED to each other as equals, despite their military rank or gender. SHE BECAME HIS EYES DURING BATTLE, HOW FUCKING COOL IS THAT.

- She calls him out on his bullshit all the time. HE TOLD HER SHE’S THE ONE PERSON ALLOWED TO SHOOT HIM DEAD IF HE EVER FUCKS UP. 

- SEXY MILITARY BATTLESHIP. I rest my case.

2. Gutsca (Guts x Casca - Berserk)

Hooo boy. Talk about a problematic power couple. I didn’t like Casca at first back in 2008, but the recent movie reboot made me appreciate her and ship these two. Gutsca is canon, by the way!

- The relationship between Guts, Casca and Griffith can be compared on many levels to the one between Levi, Mikasa and Eren, it’s kinda creepy: Casca is completely devoted to Griffith, who saved her from being raped, and gave meaning to her life in the Band of the Hawk. Casca hates Guts at first, jealous and protective of Griffith, because Guts quickly earned his trust and even dared to hurt him in battle. Guts and Casca are not only the strongest male and female warriors in the band - they’re some of the best warriors out there. And they bond by battling together for their common goal of protecting Griffith.

- Casca is officially part of the Mikasa Ackerman starter pack. That’s right, Isayama realized they both resemble each other. They’re unrefined and came from nothing, they have traumatic pasts, they’re muscular, they’re incredible warriors, they’re brave, the list goes on. (notice all these characteristics fit Guts and Levi - I told you it was creepy)

- This ship is as raw and realistic as it gets in a fantasy setting. And it starts out as a MILITARY BATTLESHIP so bonus points! But shipping it comes with a lot of suffering, so beware.

3. MirSan (Miroku x Sango, Inuyasha)

While InuKag is actually a pretty great power couple, I believe MirSan fits the meaning better, as they stand on more or less equal footing in the series. Also canon. 

- Sango is such a BADASS warrior for her day and age! She’s a DEMON SLAYER who has a TWO-TAILED DEMON CAT PARTNER, wields a DEMON-KILLING BOOMERANG and has a multitude of other cool weapons and tools.

- She’s very bitchy with Miroku when he’s being perverted AND she doesn’t take any of his bullshit. 

- Both have very complicated pasts and so many problems that time and again it makes us wonder whether it will be possible for them to be together - this ship is not without its problems. It’s their journey overcoming these hurdles together that makes this ship so intriguing.

- Both watch each other’s backs and make an excellent pair in battle, and their devotion to each other only grows and grows, it’s beautiful. ;u;

4. Zutara (Zuko x Katara - Avatar: The Last Airbender) 

YES, I’M GOING TO GO THERE. 

WELP DID YOU KNOW I’M A FRUSTRATED ZUTARA SHIPPER? I’M WRITING ABOUT ZUTARA IN MY RIVAMIKA BLOG. FIGHT ME

Okay, so as many people here probably know, anywhere you look in the ATLA fandom there is more content about this ship than the main canon pairing (Kata/Ang). Why? Because this is the definition of a FRUSTRATED SHIP sunk by its own creators due to its scary popularity that got out of hand. Turns out that not being canon backfired - it actually gave a boost to its popularity. Even a new, post-canon series (Korra) couldn’t douse the fire of ZUTARA.

I’m not going to go into more details, because there are like 7547531+ blogs on Tumblr completely dedicated to Zutara and to dissecting every bit of it. Can you imagine 200+ canon-rivamika blogs? That’s the extent of the obsession and love for this ship. Zutarians are called the Harmonians of the ATLA fandom for a good reason.

As a Rivamika shipper, why do I like this ship?

- Enemies-turned-friends. A relationship that begins with hate, evolves to grudging respect and understanding and blossoms into true friendship.

- Katara’s a BADASS MASTER WATERBENDER, an independent young woman willing to risk her life to protect her babies (she’s the “mom” of the group). Zuko’s an incredible firebender who’s got even more incredible physical combat moves, but is clumsy and a dork when it comes to romantic feelings.

- Both mentor the main character (Aang) in their respective abilities (Water and Firebending).

- PAINTED LADY AND BLUE SPIRIT.

- They both share a tragic backstory, and lost their mothers to basically the same cause (Fire Nation).

- Deep respect and understanding for each other’s abilities (ESPECIALLY KATARA’S FORBIDDEN BLOODBENDING!)

- Their trust in each other developed to a point that they talked about their past (hello Ackertalk!?) and formed a partnership to HELP EACH OTHER deal with their inner demons (Azula / Yon Rha). 

- Their battle against Azula basically defined what a BATTLESHIP is. It’s my favorite part in all of ATLA.

- They’re willing to sacrifice everything for each other.

/end fangirling

So there you have it, dear anon. I had lots of fun writing this! The common factor in these power couples is every girl being an absolute badass and using her abilities to become a powerhouse with her significant one. Oh, and not taking any bullshit from them. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Don’t worry about the Rivamika ship hitting an iceberg - we’ve overcome the biggest one (their shared ancestry) and Isayama killing Levi won’t sink the ship just as killing Erwin didn’t kill Eruri. Though I can assure you that these ships I just wrote about will keep you occupied for a long time. (;

Burned to Ashes

Day 6: Incinerate

My last entry for angst week, then I’ll readily update Beyond the Field ~

“Congratulations Mr. Dragneel and Miss Heartfilia, you are now the proud renters of one of my apartments!” The landlord announce, obviously being proud of renting out yet another apartment.

“You make it sounds like we bought a mansion or something…” Lucy muttered under her breath, taking the key from the enthusiastic man.

“I always get excited when another apartment of mine is rented, I am a businessman after all.” He straightened up his tie, looking at the young couple. “A major rule of mine though is no pets, and I repeat. No pets.”

“We don’t like animals anyway.” Natsu lied, wanting to leave this guy so he could have Lucy all to himself in their new apartment.

“Very well, another thing. Remember that you have neighbors. So when you two are having some ‘fun time’ remember to be considerate-”

“We don’t do that!” It was Lucy who spoke this time. The man in front of her looked indifferent while her boyfriend rolled his eyes, knowing she was lying.

They totally did that sort of stuff.

“Right.” The landlord spoke, not believing the blonde for a second. “If believe thats all. So, I shall be going. Enjoy your apartment!” He walked away not sparing another glance to the teens. Natsu looked to his petite girlfriend, giving her an amused look.

“You don’t like people to knowing about our nightly adventures-”

“S-Shut up!” Lucy’s face was now the color of Natsu’s hair. “I-Its not t-that…” He chuckled at her shyness, wrapping an arm around her slender shoulders.

“I know, I’m just messing around Luce.” He kissed her temple trying to ease her nerves. “Lets get our stuff inside and enjoy the night together.” He slipped his hand down her arm and intertwined their fingers together. Lucy smiled his suggestion.

“That sounds wonderful, Natsu.”

XxXxX

Lucy couldn’t sleep, not being use to the change of scenery just yet. She had been in her old apartment for five years. But after three years of dating Natsu, Lucy deemed her small apartment to small for them since Natsu insisted on staying with her rather than his own home. Since she had to pay her own way for her apartment, the only one she could afford was only spacious enough for one person to live.

“Luce?” Lucy was brought out of her thoughts when she heard her boyfriend’s concerned voice and his muscular arm tightening around her tiny waist. “You okay?”

Lucy smiled and turned in his arms to see his voice matched his expression. “Yeah I’m fine, just not use to sleeping somewhere else.” He pulled her closer until their naked chests touched.

“Well you better get use to it. We’re gonna be here for a long time.” He gave her a suggestive smile, making the blonde laugh a little. “Mostly in this bed though.” He snuggled his face in the crook of her neck, giving it a light nibble.

“With your raging hormones, you’re going to end up getting me pregnant in this place.”

“We’re gonna have kids together someday anyway, why not start now?”

“Natsu!” She gripped his pick locks tightly as he began to suck on her pulse point. “Y-You know what I-”

“Yeah I know you wanna be married before we have kids.” He pulled back, male pride filling him as he seen the darkened skin on her neck. “And thats gonna happen whenever I can afford the perfect ring for you.”

“Nothing to exquisite Natsu, just a simple ring will make me happy.” She leaned forward, connecting their lips together. She pulled apart, just enough to where she could speak. “As long as you’re the one who gives it to me.”

He smirked, turning her over so she lied on her back. He straddled her hips, lips centimeters from hers. “I can assure you that I will be the one to marry you, Lucy.” He smashed his lips back on hers, ready to continue their frenzied activity.

XxXxX

“Natsu!” Lucy shouted through their apartment, when she heard her boyfriends grunt from the next room she walked over seeing him sitting on the couch playing the latest video game he purchased. “Why is their blue fur all over your clothes?” She seen him stiffen, making her raise an eyebrow.

“No reason.”

“There is a reason Natsu.”

“Uh…” She stood in front of him, arms crossing at her chest waiting for an explanation. After seeing his girlfriends searing stare, he knew he couldn’t keep it from her. He sighed in defeat. “Fine. Theres been this cat hanging around the firehouse lately, hes really cool! He has blue fur Luce!” Seeing how his girlfriend still wasn’t pleased, he decided to keep on going with his story. “He was really skinny, so I doubt hes been eating. So I, uh kind of brought him back here a few times and fed him leftovers…”

“Natsu you idiot!” She scolded. “Once you feed a cat, they won’t leave you alone!”

“I know that now!” He said trying to reason with the angered blonde. “He follows me home everyday now.”

“Wheres it at right now?”

“…The kitchen most likely.”

“MY KITCHEN?!” She shouted angrily. She stormed to the kitchen, her boyfriend hot in pursuit. She stopped dead in her tracks when she saw a cat with blue fur sleeping on the counter next to the coffee pot. Her eye twitched out of anger turning over to Natsu. He felt her gaze and nervously turned to look back, being met with a switch slap to the back of the head.

“You idiot!”

“You already called me that!”

“Do you know we could get kicked out for that thing?!”

“Well duh.” He remarked, walking over to the now yawning animal. “But look at him Lucy! He has blue fur! How many animals do you know with blue fur?”

Lucy sighed. “Natsu I know what you’re trying to do. And the answer is no.”

“But Lucy!”

“No.” She firmly stated. Her serious face started to falter though when her boyfriend’s eyes grew big, lips forming into a pout. It didn’t help the now awake feline rubbing its face against Natsu’s, looking at the blonde with wide eyes. “Natsu…”

“I’ll take of him Luce, promise! The landlord won’t find out ‘bout him either!” Lucy’s mind went a thousand directions. She didn’t really want a pet, she had a hard time cleaning up after Natsu in the first place. “It’s either that or he sleeps out in the streets where he could very well get hit by a car and-”

“Alright fine you can keep it!” She said in defeat, not feeling like arguing with him about the matter. “But you better make sure it doesn’t make a mess.”

“You’re the best Lucy!” He ran over to her, picking her up and swinging her around in a circle to show his excitement. “It’s a boy by the way, not an it.”

“I don’t care what he is.” Natsu unwrapped his arms around her waist. “I’m going to do laundry now that I figured out the blue hair crisis.” Natsu flinched at the vicious stomping his girlfriend did.

He figured out that Lucy wasn’t a cat person.

XxXxX

“So, if you didn’t want Happy… why did you get a dog too?” Natsu questioned, very amused by Lucy’s actions. She huffed a breath, scratching the top of the dogs head.

“Well, we’ve had Happy in secret for about four months now and with us working so much I thought the little guy could use some company.”

“Since when did you care about Happy?”

Lucy rolled her eyes. “It shouldn’t be ‘when did I start caring about Happy’ it should be ‘Lucy I’m so glad you warmed up to Happy.’” As if to emphasize her point, she started to rub the now chucky feline’s stomach. “Plus, Plue and Happy get along quite well. Isn’t that a good thing?”

“I guess.” Natsu’s eyes narrowed at his blue cat whose head was sleeping on the blonde’s large chest. “I think you got comfortable because he lays on your boobs all the time.” Natsu said, somewhat jealous. “Whenever I want to lay on your chest you get pissed but when the animals do its okay? Not fair Luce, not fair.”

“You’re such a baby sometimes.”

“Yeah, your baby.”

Lucy couldn’t help but agree with him.

XxXxX

“I can’t believe you!” Lucy shouted, tears of frustration running down her cheeks. “How could you miss it?!”

“It’s not like I wanted to miss it!” He screamed back, just as angry as she was. “I had a double shift at the firehouse, I don’t know what else you want to hear from me Lucy!”

“Don’t give me that bullshit! Your dads the chief, he knew how important tonight was to me! He would’ve let you off for it if you just asked.”

“Do you not know how close my pops is to retiring and me becoming chief?! I need all the experience I can get!”

“You have everyday of the rest of your life to work Natsu, I wanted you there whenever I gave my speech to keep the public library open! I really wanted you there…” Her tears were now rushing from her eyes to the point she couldn’t see straight. Natsu sighed.

“Look Lucy, I know you wanted me there. It just didn’t work out and I’m sorry.” He pulled out his phone and checked the time. “I have to go back to the station now.” She looked up, an incredulous look on her face.

“You’re going back there right now? After a fight?”

Natsu blinked. “Well yeah?”

“Why?”

“Why wouldn’t I? We’ve been fighting a lot lately, maybe because of all the time we’re spending together.”

“…We live in the same house Natsu.”

“Lucy you know thats not what I meant. We all need our space, and right now you need some alone time. I’ll be back in the morning.”

“So, you’re just going to leave me when I’m like this…?” Natsu ran a hand through his hair at her stubborness.

“Lucy, get some sleep. I’ll see you tomorrow.”

“Natsu, don’t leave me alone tonight…” He heard what she said, but chose to ignore it and walked out the door. Thinking giving her some space would be the best medicine for her.

XxXxX

The sound of the fire alarms rang throughout the building. Dozens of men jumped up and put on their protective suits. Natsu was no exception. Once his gear was on, he jumped in the fire truck that was ready to take off.

Speeding down the street, he thought about his fight with Lucy. Was it a mistake to leave her when she asked him not too? When they usually got into a fight, Lucy told him just to give her space and he thought this time was no exception. She told him not to leave this time though, and he did anyway. He put his hand in his pocket, fiddling with the box that contained a ring.
The perfect ring to propose to Lucy with.
That was the real reason he worked that double shift and missed her speech. He felt bad about missing it, he truly did but Lucy wanted to marry him as soon as possible. So for the past few weeks he pulled double shifts until he was able to afford the ring of Lucy’s dreams.

And he was going to propose to her tomorrow night.

He had it all planned out. They would go out to Lucy’s favorite restaurant and take a walk in the park. Natsu would have a little area set up with a perfect view of the stars in the sky. He would say some cheesy thing like how she was more beautiful than any star in the sky and go with the flow from there.

He just couldn’t wait to have Lucy’s last name change to Dragneel.

He was so lost in his thoughts of his future wife, he failed to notice the destination they arrived at. When he looked at the familiar apartment complex his heart dropped.

It was his and Lucy’s apartment complex.

He jumped out of the vehicle, about to run to the burning building when a strong hand stopped him in his tracks.

“What the hell Igneel?! Lucy’s in there!” The older male looked down to his adoptive son.

“I am very aware of that Natsu. I have a rescue team in there, you are to stay out here and help water down the fire. You can’t let your feelings for Lucy get in the way of others safety.”

“Others safety?! What the hell are you talking about-” The crackling of the fire got louder, as well as a sound of creaking boards. Natsu felt numb as he watched the building crumble to the ground instantly.

“LUCY!” Natsu pushed past his grief struck superior and made his way to the rubble. He noticed most parts were on fire, he gritted his teeth at the thought that he would have to wait until it was out to look for his girlfriend. Half an hour of waiting anxiously and running around the burning rubble to sign of Lucy, the fire was out.

Natsu acted immediately. Climbing on the soot filled pile and pushing away the debris, but still no sign of his blonde haired lover. He seen as his allies rescued others from the rubble, but not his Lucy.

“Hey, we found a body over here!” Natsu’s heart sank. Out of curiosity he ran over to where his friend had shouted.

His heart almost stopped.

It was Lucy. Her skin was covered in ash, as well as her hair. He noticed that she was on top of their animals.

Their now dead animals.

He didn’t see them struggling to get free of her grip like animals usually did during this situation. He couldn’t breathe. He didn’t know what to do. He barely felt the hand on his shoulder and the “I’m so sorry” his comrade offered him. Natsu couldn’t look at his now dead girlfriend, or the now dead animals they’ve been raising in secret for the past year they’ve lived at the complex. He stepped off the pile and started walking away from the scene. He glanced when they carried the girl on a stretcher, the two animals still in her clutch. He seen something else clasped in her hand. He didn’t waste any time in going over and seeing what it was.

When he looked at it, Natsu wished he could’ve died right there and now.

It was a pregnancy test. On the screen was a little plus, indicating that she was pregnant.

Lucy was pregnant.

Is that why she was so upset tonight? Or why she’s been so hormonal for the past few weeks? He just stared at the little test in his hands. Still not believing it. He started to shake, tears starting to run from his eyes. His mind repeating her last words.

“Natsu, don’t leave me alone tonight…”

He finally dropped down to his knees, his cries heard by everyone. He didn’t care though. He had lost everything he held dear to him all in one night.

His home.

His pets.

His other half.

…And his child.

Prompt: Um in Dangan Ronpa IF there's a bit where Monokuma say's a plan where he's just going to hold the killing game but this time Mukuro participates as herself with all her memories removed after having her sustain injuries but Mondo saves Mukuro could you please do a small thing where Junko can actually go through with that plan

A/N shoutout to @saruxiii and her series fic Forsaken Memories which I highly recommend because trust me, it’s naekusaba A++

DR IF Bad Route - what if they had failed the first time?

Mukuro Ikusaba woke up to an unfamiliar environment.

Her eyes blearily scanned her surroundings. It seemed that she was the only occupant of the room and that did little to make her feel at ease. For a classroom it looked… off. There were metal plates barring the windows and she also noted a monitor as well as a camera. This didn’t bode well for her. She stood up and almost staggered in surprise at how sore and heavy her body was. She felt like she had just been fighting for her life. But that wasn’t right. She couldn’t remember anything like that happening…

In fact, she couldn’t remember anything at all.

Fear gripped her right then and there as she struggled to pull out a memory, or any memory at all. She had a name. She knew what her name was. But anything beyond that was just out of reach for her. She felt herself being swallowed by the emptiness of it all.

Where was she? Who was she?

She didn’t know. She couldn’t remember. No matter how hard she tried she just couldn’t remember. All of a sudden, her breathing became shallow, ragged, and almost gasping. She couldn’t breathe. Did she forget how to breathe as well? Panic coursed through her veins as the fear tried to incapacitate her. She needed answers. She needed air. She needed to get out.

So she forced her fear-paralyzed body to move and dragged herself to the door. She almost fell out of the room had she not run into someone.

Something within her geared into action as her body moved on its own. It was like she was moving it and at the same times she felt like someone else was pulling the strings. It felt natural and foreign altogether as her body maneuvered itself. And in a split second, she had the person she bumped into in a chokehold.

“P-Please! I didn’t mean to bump into you! It was an accident!” The person cried out. “Please, calm down.”

She blinked as what had just happened had finally caught up to her mind. Still confused, she let him go as her arms fell limply to her sides. “S-Sorry. It just… happened.” She mumbled lamely. She couldn’t offer a better excuse because not even she was sure of what just happened or why her body acted out like that.

“It’s okay. You were surprised, right?” He said comfortingly and it’s only when he turned around that she finally saw his radiant smile.

“I’m glad… you’re not hurt… Ikusaba.”

A bloodied version of the person stood in front of her and though he look pained, his smile was still genuinely full of relief.

She blinked owlishly. What… What was that? Was that… a memory? But just as soon as the flashback came, it had also faded just as fast. And all was left in front of her was the person who wasn’t smiling anymore. In fact, he had a slight frown on his face.

“Ah! Are you okay, miss?” He asked with brows furrowed in concern.

“Huh? Why would you ask that?” She asked, confused where this was coming from.

“Well um…” He paused, hesitant as he gently pointed out, “You’re crying.”

She was? A tentative hand went to touch her cheek and was surprised to find it wet. She was crying. Since when did she start to cry? Was it because of that memory? Or even before that? She didn’t know anymore. Everything was just so confusing and frustrating and another, more dreadful, feeling was threatening to swallow her whole. She knew this feeling. She felt it clawing at her heart. This feeling of helplessness. This feeling of hopelessness.

This feeling of despair.

“Here, use mine.” He offered her his handkerchief which she accepted stiffly. “I’m assuming we’re in the same situation. It’s all so confusing and scary, right?”

She nodded numbly as she wiped her tears. “Y-Yeah…”

“It’s normal to feel scared. I am too.” He admitted and she saw it in his eyes. He was honestly afraid too. But unlike her, something else shone in his eyes. He was afraid but he was also willing to face his fears. He spoke encouragingly, “But at least we don’t have to be alone in this. I’m not exactly sure what’s going on either but I’m relieved to see you.”

“Me too.” She breathed. And she wondered if it was normal to feel this much relief over meeting a stranger.

This stranger who was giving her hope.

“Let’s stick together if that’s okay with you.” He offered her his hand as he smiled brightly once again. “I’m Makoto Naegi.”

“If I ever decide to kill someone, I promise it won’t be you!”

She heard the voice of a girl and although it sounded nothing like hers, she had this strange feeling that it was her who said it even though her mouth has been closed all this time.

She took a deep breath and cleared her head. If this was a memory then she’ll deal with it later. For now, he was still waiting for her with an expectant smile. Of course she’d answer him. “Mukuro Ikusaba.”

And as she shook his hand, she wondered why she felt like she didn’t want to let go.

In another universe, another IF was being written, and another battle of hope against despair had just begun.

3 Times He Wanted To Ask You Out, 1 Time He Did

Originally posted by love-buckybarnes

Three times Bucky Barnes wanted to ask you out, and the time he finally did

Warnings: none


//


The First Time: “You’re gonna do it this time.” Steve says assuringly, looking Bucky dead in the eyes. Steve’s spent the last half hour convincing him it’s finally time to bite the bullet and ask you out already. Partly because he knows how much Buck likes you and he wants his best friend to be happy, but mainly because you’re all he talks about and its getting really annoying.”I’m gonna ask y/n out.” Bucky mutters to himself, nodding his head rapidly. He glances over Steve’s shoulder and the air is knocked straight from his lungs. You’re just wearing a loose sweatshirt and workout shorts, you’ve been training with Nat and Peter the entire day, but you still manage to take his breath away. “I can’t do this. She’s one hundred percent out of my league” Bucky sighs, letting his head fall in his hands. Steve groans and runs his fingers through his hair, trying to think of someway to just make him go for it already. “Hey y/n!” Steve calls, pulling your attention away from the sandwich you’ve begun to make in the kitchen, “Bucky needs to ask you something.” And with that, he darts off down the hallway, leaving you and Bucky alone. “What’s the deal Barnes?” you ask, smiling as you cut the sandwich in half. He stumbles up to you, tripping over thin air. He fiddles with the ends of his hair and refuses to meet your eyes. His cheeks become flushed and heated as you wait for the question he’s supposed to be asking. “So I was wondering,” he blurts loudly, practically shouting even though he’s right next to you, “I was, um, just kinda, er, wondering if you would, possibly maybe kind of sorta, uh…” He stutters, hands shoved in his pockets while his feet shift awkwardly. “Bucky,” you laugh, “just say it already. You can tell me anything, you know that.” And it was in that moment that he realized, he can’t tell you anything. You and him have grown so close, as in sharing bad breakup stories, watching scary movies late at night and yelling at the tv, falling asleep in each other’s rooms because you stay up talking so late close. He would give anything to keep that forever. And if he asks you out and you say no…it would ruin everything. “I was just gonna ask if I could have half of that sandwich.” he sighs reluctantly, putting on a fake smile. You laugh, relief flooding your expression. “For a second there I thought it was something serious.” you grin, handing him half of the sandwich before taking a bite of your own. His gaze drops as he nibbles on the bread, his appetite gone. “Nope…nothing serious.”


The Second Time: “So I’ll just keep my hands on your waist.” Bucky says, guiding you across the dance floor that’s really just the mats of the training room. Both in your socks, you try the best you can not to step on his feet, but grace has never been your strong suit. “I’m never going to learn how to slow dance in time for this United Nations gala tonight!” you groan, tossing your hands in the air and pulling away from Bucky. He strides over to the record player that’s blasting 40′s music and lifts the needle from the turntable, the music cutting off abruptly. “Oh please y/n.” Bucky laughs, placing his hands back on your waist, “If you can learn to use a bow and arrow lethally in a half hour, you can learn to slow dance. You just have to…feel it.” He starts to sway gently to a song he’s begun to hum. “That’s just it Bucky. I don’t know how to ‘feel it’. You don’t have to feel anything to shoot an arrow, you just have to follow your instincts.” you sigh, following his slow footsteps in light turns. He pulls you closer against him, repeating the same 5 steps and humming the same song until you’ve begun to hum along with him. “Faster.” he says, puling you even closer and quickening his pace before you can protest. Your grip on his shoulders tighten as you both begin to glide across the room. You don’t give the moves any thought, they’re now engraved in your memory. “1-2-3, 4-5-6, 3-2-1,4-5-6″ you mutter over and over again, keeping you eyes locked on his. Bucky feels a tickled laugh start to rise in his chest at the look of sheer concentration in your expression. Dancing isn’t about thinking, it’s about having fun. Bucky has wanted to teach you how to slow dance forever, of course he was hoping it would be in preparation for a date with him, not a stuffy UN gala that Tony insisted you go to. “It’s just to leave a good impression” he’d told you when you asked him why you had to be the one to go, “You’re pretty and young and whatnot, it’ll make us look good.”  So Bucky settled for teaching you to dance instead. “Faster.” he mumbles so low you can barely hear him before he starts to move even quicker. His moves are graceful and sharp, never missing a beat. “1-2-3, 4-5-6, 7…I mean 3-5…no that’s not-” and before you can think of what comes next, your legs tangle in his and you both come crashing to the ground. He lands on his back with a thud, the mats breaking both your falls. You land squarely on top of him, bracing your hands against his chest before your head can bang against his. “Ughhhh.” you groan in frustration, pushing yourself up so your body still sits on his waist You ball up his shirt in your hands, the scratchy fabric itching your palms. “Why can’t I do this!” you cry, and without realizing what you’re doing, you’ve torn his nice button up shirt completely in half, exposing the tight t-shirt underneath. Your eyes meet his, and for a split second you think he’ll be upset, but theres a twinkle in his eyes and a smile takes over his expression. “I never liked the shirt anyways.” he says in all seriousness before you both shout with laughter, the ridiculousness of the situation humoring you both. You let your head drop as you cover your face with your hands. “I’m sorry Buck.” you laugh, dropping the torn fabric. He brushes your hair behind your ears and gently tugs your hands away from your face, still smiling. You shoot him your most apologetic look and bite your bottom lip, shaking your head. It’s in that moment that the words he’s held back for so long nearly escape his lips. He could ask you right now to go out with him, and you could say yes, and you could spend the rest of the day learning how to slow dance. Or you could say no. And the fear of that split second of uncertainty, the moment where you have to decide what your answer will be, is enough to keep Bucky from asking at all. “Let’s keep going.” he says instead, and you do.

Birthday for a Butler - Prince Roberto fanfic (CONTEST WINNER XIAO)

This fic is dedicated to the oh-so-lovely littlehevn, I hope you find it worth the wait! :) 

The pattering of footsteps could be heard throughout the Altarian castle one morning. Every now and then, when a maid turned onto a different hallway, the obvious footsteps would turn into less obvious tiptoeing and the maid will look the opposite way of the black and brown hair peeking around a corner or behind a vase. Today, the infamous duo was being extra sneaky. The charming prince nodded at the eager princess, signaling the okay to move on. The left the corner and scooted along the wall of the hallway leading to the kitchen. Once there, the prince hid the princess behind his back while he discussed official business.
“Pssssssst. Chef!” he hissed towards the head pastry chef who was working on some macaroons for an upcoming royal meeting.
“Huh?” The plump chef looked around the kitchen, pastry bag in hand. He then spotted the shifty eyes of Prince Roberto, hiding behind a counter. “Yes, your highness?” he chuckled.
“Chef Mario, the princess and I are here with a very important and top secret task for you.” Roberto talked in a low voice, looking suspiciously behind his shoulder. The chef looked towards Princess Xiao, who was currently stuffing some macaroons in her purse for later. Once she realized she’d been caught, she flashed an innocent smile to the chef and put back a couple macaroons. The chef twitched his eye and opened his mouth to speak
“Chef! We must hurry, for there is not much time left!” Roberto grabbed the chefs chubby cheeks in order to grab his attention.
However, the princess had not put all of the macaroons back.
She snuck back over to Roberto and the chef, with about a macaroon and a half in her mouth. The prince chuckled and smirked at her slyly. That’s my girl.
“Any ways, official business!” he tells the chef.
“Yes! Very official!” Princess Xiao chimes in with a mouth full. The chef nods.
“We’ve come with good intentions to give thanks to my main man Alberto, tomorrow is his birthday and the princess and I have been absolutely stumped on what to do for him.” Prince Roberto explains, looking down with a desperate expression.
The princess gulps the rest of the macaroon, “Poor Alberto has done so much for Roberto and I, so I told the prince that we needed to do something special for his special day. The best thing that we could come up with is taking his to the Altarian amusement park….” she adds. The chef cringes, attempting to imagine the butler squealing joyfully on a rollercoaster or stuffing his face with cotton candy.
“But then we got some imput on our idea from some of the maids and they are completely against it. But it’s not like they had any better ideas, it seems like everyone that works here has no idea what Alberto would like for his birthday!” The prince exclaims, then is quickly shushed by the princess, being reminded of the importance of secrecy of the situation.
The chef looks between the expressions of the prince and princess who are both hiding behind the counter with matching desperate expressions.
“Have you tried….. Asking him?” The chef suggests.
“I….uhh….” Prince Roberto starts off confidently then furrows his eyebrows, trying to recall.
“No.” The princess simply states, smacking her own head then grabs the prince by the collar and drags him out of the kitchen as it was obvious all along.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“What would I do without you?” Prince Roberto smiles down warmly at his princess.
“You would be way more boring and a lot less thoughtful” Princess Xiao replied, snuggling into his T-shirt covered chest. Together, they walked into the dining room (attempting to be) casual. Alberto was in the corner of the room, preparing the tea. At the sight of the royal couple, he stiffend.
“Good afternoon you highnesses.” Alberto bowed and proceeded going back to the tea.
“Sup.” Roberto nodded and threw an arm around Xiao. She nudged him in the side and Roberto quickly removed his arm.
“Too casual!” She whispered, knowing exactly how to act around the butler. “Good evening Alberto, it’s nice to see you. Is that a new tie?” She smiled innocently, sitting in the chair that the prince pulled out for her.
The butler briefly blushed and then began serving the tea. “It is, thank you for noticing, your highness.” He nodded.
The rest of dinner went well. Tonight was one of Roberto’s days off (officially, not self-granted) and he felt lucky to be able to spend it with the love of his life. He was sipping on a glass of wine across the table from Xiao when he spoke up.
“SOO, Xiao, I was in thought earlier and a question came to mind that I couldn’t quite find the answer to…” He trailed off, shifting his eyes briefly to Alberto, who stood in the back of the room with his arms crossed behind his back.
Picking up on this because of the many times they practiced this conversation earlier, she played along “Yes? What is it that you were wondering about my prince?” She asked sweetly, playing the part that Alberto approved.
“I was in my study, thinking about all the mysteries of the universe when it dawned on me, ‘What do older men typically want for their birthdays?” Roberto explains, using hand gestures as if what he’s saying is the most important question ever. Alberto discretely raises an eyebrow, picking up on the conversation.
“Ahh, yes! I myself have pondered such a question. I thought that maybe older men would love tickets to amusement parks!” She smiled, making eye contact with Alberto. The butler then quickly looks away and pretends to busy himself with shining glassware.
“Or aquariums!” Roberto suggests, still not getting a reaction from Alberto.
“Or maybe the zoo!” says the princess.
“Or the strip club!” Roberto blurts, not considering his words.
The princess chokes on her wine and a glass is shattered from across the room. Alberto has dropped the cup and turned around to glare at Roberto.
“Okay, I’m just going to be honest here. Alberto, what do you want for your birthday? Xiao and I are stumped.” Roberto asks, giving up.
“Well, your highness, I do not request anything for my birthday. Just being able to serve you is enough honor for me.” Alberto states, simply, while cleaning up the glass mess.
“I appreciate the sentiment but c'mooon. There’s got to be something!” Roberto pesters. He shares a frustrated look with Xiao.
“They’re really isn’t anything I need. You could get me a cardboard box for all I care. Please, you guys need'nt worry about me.” He smiles at the princess, hoping that she’ll understand and be able to get Roberto off his back, like always.
She sighs, “Then it’s decided. Roberto, we ought to get ready for bed soon. Alberto, please at least us treat you to dinner sometime this week. I won’t take no for an answer.” She says sternly. Alberto nods and grabs their plates.
The royal pair scoot out their chairs and leave the dining room. As soon as the door closes behind them, Roberto lets out an exhausted grunt.
“Fine. Be that way.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Roberto was looking through the news paper in bed, although not being totally engrossed in the article. Running through his mind are ideas of birthday presents. Every thing from candles, to fuzzy socks. This was going to bother him. Although he was silently in his thoughts, the princess could sense the tense atmosphere surrounding him.
“Please, my darling, do not continue to fret over the birthday situation.” She says sweetly, walking out of the bathroom after drying her hair from a shower. “I know… I just, feel bad sometimes that he has to put up with me and theres so little I can do for him. That he’ll accept, anyways.” He says, putting down the news paper and taking in the sight of his fiance. She was wearing nothing but one of his favorite T-shirts and he’s immediately calmed and thrilled all at once.
“I’m aware. But trust me, I have it all figured out.” She says jumping into bed and landing on her knees next to Roberto. He strokes a piece of her long black hair and sighs.
“You’re right. For now, all I want to do is relax with you.” He smiles and pulls her down next to him and cuddles into her. She lightly runs her hands through his hair, wanting him to be able to relax. This coming week was going to be rough for him with the upcoming royal meetings and the party at Nobel Michel that weekend.
“How is it that you’re able to be my partner in crime and the only one who can bring me back to earth all at once?” He whispers, cuddling more into her.
“I don’t know, honey. All I can say is that I myself have pondered such a question.” she chuckles and they fall asleep soon after.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Today is the day, the birthday of the beloved butler to the crown prince to Altaria. The butler was currently taking a short break, sneaking off to open the few presents he did receive. Even though he told every one he wasn’t concerned with it, he was secretly a little excited to open presents. He shifts his eyes in the hallway to make sure no one has followed him and then locks the door behind him. He grabs the four boxes that were waiting outside of his doorway and makes his way over to the couch to open them.
The first box he opened was a exquisite wine given by the King & Queen. (and a small note saying that if he wasn’t so stubborn that they would have bought him a vineyard)
The second was a gift from one of the guards who he often had casual conversation with at the front gate every morning, a cucumber melon candle.
The third was a small gift bag from one of the maids who often worked in the dining room with him; a pair of blue fuzzy socks tied in ribbon.
The fourth present was a rather large box and has a beautiful yellow wrapping paper and a blue bow around it. Alberto questioned who would give him a gift so large in size as he began to unwrap it. Once the large cardboard box was opened he was surprised to find it empty except for a small note inside;
We just wanted to give you what you asked for, buddy. - Rob & Xiao
PS: Xiao says that we’re taking you to dinner this week, even if we have to kidnap you in this cardboard box.

PREVIOUS PARTS TO THE SERIES!!


WARNING: slight smut, guns and violence 


———————————————–
Michael’s movement makes me wake up with a smirk, his erection grinding into my back side looking for some type of release as he lets out tiny moans and whimpers in his sleep. I remove his arm from my waist so I can get out of bed, leaving him thrusting into the comforter. I laugh a bit at the sexually frustrated boy, his eyebrows furrowed and his bottom lip inbetween his teeth as he keeps moving his hips into the balled up sheets. I walk out of the bedroom so I can go upstairs and get my daily dose of caffeine, seeing as I am not a great morning person most of the time. I walk up the steps and open the door to the kitchen, closing it behind me and heading straight for the coffee maker that surprisingly seems as if its a fresh pot.

“Hey! Look who’s awake!” Cal says walking into the kitchen and giving me a one armed hug.

“Good morning.” I say with a small smile as he hands me a coffee cup.

“I thought you and Mike would be having another round this morning.” He says with a joking tone and a smirk.

“Shut up.” I say as I punch him lightly in the arm and roll my eyes.

He hold the arm I punched and fakes a hurt look as he starts to whine about how you’re “so mean!”
———————

I sit at the dining room table and drink my coffee, reading the daily newspaper column about our stick-up that happened a few days ago. I hear foot steps walk towards me and I turn around to meet a messy haired Michael who looks embarrassed , yet happy. He gives me a smile and a kiss on the cheek before he sits down with his arm around me on the seat to my right. 

“I woke up this morning and you weren’t there.” He says.

“Well.. I needed my coffee.” I say still looking at the newspaper with a smirk.

“Well.. I needed your assistance with certain problem.” He says while caressing my inner thigh.

“Well it looked like you were already taking care of that problem, so I left you to finish your business.” I say with a smirk while getting up from the table to put my cup in the sink. 

Michael follows me to the kitchen and wraps his arm around my waist and places a kiss to my jaw as I start to clean my coffee cup.

“Do you know how embarrassing it is to wake up from a wet dream about the girl who’s sleeping next to you, and realize that you just came in your pants and she isn’t there.” He whispers in your ear. 

You turn around in his arms and place a chaste kiss to his lips as he lowers his hands to grip your ass.

“Well then I guess you got your problem sorted out then!” I say while moving away from his arms and walking into the living room.

I turn around to see him when I walk through the door way, and see him staring at me with his jaw agape. I let out a laugh and join Calum on the couch, leaving Mikey in his surprised state.
—————————————

“So Y/N, what do you wanna do today?” Cal asks.

“Actually… I have an idea of something ive been wanting to do..” I say, unsure if I should tell them.

“Well, what is it?” Cal asks.

“I wanted to go back to my apartment and grab some of my things. Theres just some things that are there that I need.” I say biting my lip.

“Ok.” He says, giving me a shrug.

“Really?” I ask.

“Ya, why not… You just need to grab something. There’s nothing wrong with that.” He says looking back at the t.v.

I let out a breath I didnt even know I was holding in.

“Cool, lets go get ready then.” I say getting up with the two other boys to get dressed and head to my apartment.

———————————————–

We arrive at my apartment and start to pack up the things I need.

“Wow! You weren’t kidding when you said your apartment was shit.” Cal says with a laugh.

“CAL! What the hell man!” Mikey says with a stern look on his face.

“Naw.. Its ok, I did say my apartment is a piece of shit.” I say with a grin.
———————————————–

After we packed up the stuff, We stepped out in the hallway to be greeted by my “crazy cat lady” neighbor. 

“OH Hello! I was just wonderin’ if you’ve seen any kittens in your apartment? Ive been trying to reach you for a couple days now an-” I interrupt her before she can finish.

“You can go ahead and check.” I say with small smile.

She may be crazy and annoying, but she means well.

“Thank you dear.” She says returning my smile with one of her own and walking into my (old) apartment.

The boys and I all walk into the apartment along with my neighbor.

“What does the kitten look like?” I ask

“He has grey fur and blue eyes, hes only 2 months old.” Shes says, looking under the furniture.

15 minutes later and we find the kitten in my kitchen cabinet, chewing on a box cat treats I got for whenever the cats would come over. It was actually quite nice sometimes to have the cats in the apartment, they were good company.

“There you are!” The cat lady says, picking up the kitten and holding him close.

“Oh my god! He’s so cute!” Mikey says running up to the both of them and petting the little creature.

“Yes, he is adorable. Thats why it makes me sad to have to put him up for adoption.” She says in a sad tone and a pout.

“Wait. Why cant you keep him?” I ask.

“I have so many of them and I cant take care of this one, so Im hoping that somebody else can give him a a better home.” She says.

With that one sentence, Mikey looks up at Cal and I with a hopeful look on his face.

“No Mikey.” I say

“But, but-”  

“No.” I say giving him a serious look.

Michael crosses his arms over his chest and pouts.

“Come on Y/N, Let him have the kitten.” Cal says.

“ugh, Fine.” I say rolling my eyes.

“YAY!” Michael yells with a huge smile on his face, throwing his hands up in the air in victory.

“Under on condition.” I say crossing my arms.

Michael’s happy demeanor is replaced with confusion.

“I get to name him.” I say with a smirk.

Michael sighs and gives me a little pout.

“What are you gonna name him?” Cal asks.

“Freddy Mercury.” I say with a smile.

“Wait.. Like Queen Freddy Mercury?” Mikey asks

“Yup.” I say

“Oh my god… This is why I love you.” Michael says more to himself than to me, but I cant help but look at him in shock.

“What did you just say?” I ask.

“NOTHING!” Michael says, picking up the bag full of my stuff and taking the kitten from my neighbors hands thanking her and rushing out the door.

—————————-

When we get back to the house, I unpack my things and meet Michael in the living room were he’s playing with the kitten on the floor.

“Hey Mikey, ya wanna watch a movie? I ask.

“Sure, what is it?’’

“Stephen King’s The Shining.” I say with a grin.

“Sure.. Where did you get it from?” He asks, getting up with the kitten in his hands and sitting on the couch.

“I took it from my apartment.. I mean, come on. Its The Shining, its a classic!” I say while putting it into the dvd player and turning on the t.v.

I sit down next to Michael and cuddle into his side, as he puts his arm around me and places a his on my temple…By the end of the movie I look up at Mikey and see him fast asleep, the kitten curled up in his lap, asleep as well. I lay my head on his shoulder and place a soft kiss on his jaw before I close my eyes and fall asleep.
———————————————————–

I wake up on the couch noticing that im by myself and Michael isnt there.
I get up and rub my eyes, walking to the kitchen. When I walk in I see Mikey making a fresh pot of coffee and the kitten on the counter eating dry cat food.

“Where’d the cat food come from?’’ I ask, wrapping my arms around Michael’s waist.

“Good morning to you too… And Ashton and Luke got it this morning before they came over after I asked them to pick it up.” He says with a laugh as he grabs my arms to take them off his waist so he can turn around.

He places a kiss to my lips that I return, which makes the kiss turn into a mini make out session.

“Good morning..” I mumble in the kiss and pull away from Michael’s grasp and head into the dining room to say hello to the others.
————————————————————————-

“Everybody ready!?” Luke asks.

We all nod, masks and gloves on, guns loaded and ready.

“Alright! Lets go!” He says, opening the car door and we all jump out and run into the store.

“EVERYBODY GET DOWN NOW!” Ashton yells as Luke gets behind the counter and tells the man working there to open all the registers and place the money in the bag, while pointing his gun at his head.

Cal and Mikey head to the back to see if they have a safe,as Ashton and I make sure that nobody does anything to ruin the plan.

Luke is still filling up the duffel bag, when I notice somebody behind the customer service counter moving their hand underneath it.

“HEY YOU!” I yell and point my gun at the woman behind the counter.

She looks up at me, fear in her eyes as I walk over to her. I get behind the counter and push her out of the way to see what she was doing, when I notice a little red button. ‘Oh shit… She pressed the panic alarm..’ (A/N not supposed to be a danisnotonfire pun btw)

“BOYS! WE GOTTA GET OUT NOW!!” I yell.

Cal and Mikey run out of the back room while Ashton holds the doors open for them.

“COME ON LETS GET OUT OF HERE!!” I yell to at Luke when I notice he’s still collecting the money.

Luke finally gives up on collecting all of the cash and takes what he can get and leaves.
———————————————–

When we get back to the house, Luke looks furious.

“WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT?!” He yells.

“Luke, calm down. We got a lot of money fro-” Cal gets interrupted by Luke slamming his fist into the wall.

“BUT THATS JUST IT! WE DIDNT GET ALL OF IT!” Luke yells while tugging at his hair.

“Bro, you’re being paranoid..” Ashton states

“I am not.. Its all her fault..” Luke says, pointing at me.

“WHAT?! She saved our asses, what the fuck are you talking about!” Mikey yells.

“SHE SHOULD HAVE DONE SOMETHING BEFORE THE LADY PRESSED THE PANIC ALARM!!” Luke yells as he gives me a death glare while I back myself up into the corner in fear.

“LUKE, YOU’RE JUST TRYING TO BLAME SOMETHING ON SOMEBODY ELSE WHEN ITS NOBODY’S FAULT!!” Cal yells at the blond haired boy.

Luke paces in front of me mumbling to himself.

“Luke, are you ok?” I ask in a quiet voice, still shaking in the corner from fear.

“Shut up..” He spits out his words, still pacing in front of me.

“Luke, dude chill..” Ashton says from across the room.

“I SAID SHUT UP!” Luke screams pulling out his gun and pointing it at me.

“DON’T YOU FUCKING DARE!” Michael yells, a mix of fear and anger showing through his words and his demeanor.

“Its all your fault…Its all your fault…” Luke mumbles again and again looking me straight in the eyes, still pointing his gun at me with his finger ready to pull the trigger.

“Luke…Please..” I begged, tears falling from my eyes.

The last thing I remember, was a loud bang from the gun and an excruciating pain hitting me before I hit the ground and feel a warm substance ooze from my stomach…

Five Minutes Older -- Chapter Six: The Power of Mabel

Chapter One - Chapter Two - Chapter Three - Chapter Four - Chapter Five - Chapter Six - Chapter Seven - Chapter Eight  - Chapter Nine - Chapter Ten - Chapter Eleven

Ao3 Link

A Time Stuck AU fic where Mabel gets trapped in the past with a younger version of Stan. Stuff starts to get real this chapter, guys, I am so excited.


Stanley, Oregon, 1979

A person could make the trip from Northern Missouri to Oregon in two days if they didn’t mind long hours on the road. It took Stan four days, delayed a little bit by car trouble but mostly by reluctance. 

Along the way he’d had to stop and pull over six times, each time telling Mabel he just wanted to stretch his legs. Really what he’d needed was a chance to find an isolated spot someplace where he could put his head between his knees and quietly panic. Where he could rock back and forth and breathe in and out until he stopped feeling lightheaded. On one occasion, Mabel had followed him and caught him like that. He’d resolved not to let her see it a second time.

He was glad to have her holding his hand as they approached the door.

Horoscope for April 9th, 2016
  • Aries: You might want to spend most of today outside, perhaps taking a walk through a park. You could have some serious thinking to do and feel the best recourse is to be by yourself for a while. Decisions won't come easily today, so don't try to force them. Just enjoy being out in the fresh air. Sometimes things come together more quickly if you forget about them for a while.
  • Taurus: Money problems could be on your mind, perhaps more so than necessary. You might have a tendency to blow them out of proportion and think they're worse than they are. Try to make a special effort to be objective. You might need to cut a few corners and devise a few temporary economy measures, but your situation should be back to normal within a week or two. Relax!
  • Gemini: Today you could look in the mirror and panic about your appearance. You might be feeling a little under the weather and look a little tired. Nonetheless, you probably look a lot better than you think you do. Don't fall into the trap of blowing every little flaw out of proportion. A little rest is probably all you need in order to look like yourself again.
  • Cancer: Your artistic abilities could seem a bit blocked today. You could be anxious to complete a half-finished project, but at this point you may have no idea where to go with it. Don't panic! Do something else for a day or two and ideas will probably flow as if by magic. If you don't have a tight deadline, there's no rush to complete the work now. Give it some time!
  • Leo: Today you could have a strong desire to get out and socialize. You could well spend a lot of time on the phone trying to reach some friends, but not have much luck with it. If they're busy, a frustrating game of phone tag could result. You might try just dropping by. Even if he or she can't see you right then, you can make arrangements for later.
  • Virgo: Today you could receive an invitation to a social event that you'll really want to attend. People could be there who might turn out to be important contacts. Nonetheless, you might find that other responsibilities interfere with your plans, and experience a wave of disappointment. If you're creative, you will find a way to fulfill your obligations and attend the event, too. Think about it!
  • Libra: An opportunity to travel to a place you've always wanted to visit, perhaps for business reasons, could come your way today. This could be very exciting, but you might have some difficulty making the arrangements. Flights could be full, hotels too costly, and responsibilities at home might need attention. But you can find a way to deal with any obstacle. Think creatively and get busy!
  • Scorpio: Daydreams full of adventure, perhaps involving travel, could take up a lot of your time today. You're probably bored with your situation and longing to do something to break your routine. You might have no idea how you can escape from everything right now. Don't force it. Spend the afternoon in a place you don't usually visit. You'll come up with a workable idea in due time. Go for it!
  • Sagittarius: Your desire to see a romantic partner could be very strong today. However, if you ask, you might be turned down. Don't jump to the conclusion that your friend doesn't want to see you. If he or she says there are responsibilities to attend to, believe it! You might have to wait until another day, but that's probably the worst that will happen. Have a little faith and hang in there!
  • Capricorn: Overindulgence in food and drink over the past few days could be causing you to feel a little out of sorts today. You might even wonder if the fun was worth it! A little careful attention to yourself will have you back to normal in no time. Don't be surprised, however, if another opportunity to live it up presents itself! Take care. You don't want to feel this way again.
  • Aquarius: A strong desire to meet with a romantic partner could come over you today. However, you might not be able to reach your friend. He or she could be busy and unable to respond to phone messages or emails. Nonetheless, don't get too frustrated. If you persist, the two of you will eventually touch base. If you can't see each other today, make arrangements for tomorrow. Better late than never!
  • Pisces: A moody family member could have you confused, and you might not be able to discern the best way to find out what's bothering him or her. Don't overanalyze the situation. The best way is probably just to come right out and tactfully speak your mind. You'll probably find that this person simply has some minor problems to work through - nothing serious enough to worry about.
Live A Little (Part 3)

(In case you missed it, here’s part 2)

Masterlist

Staring at Ashton, you felt like everything was crashing down again.

“It’s not what it looks like I swear”

As soon as you said these words, you quickly glanced to look at Calum, who was now giving you a look you couldn’t quite decipher.

No? Than what the fuck does it look like?”

Hearing Ashton’s voice, you turned to face him, staying quite.

You knew what it looked like. 

Hell, just 15 seconds ago, you liked what it felt like. 

But now? 

You were completely confused.

I don't know, i just-”

Cutting you off, he laughed harshly.

You don’t know? Oh that’s fucking rich. After all the shit we’ve been through, you decided to just ignore me and move on to my best friend? Shit, who would have thought you were such a slut-”

Jumping off the bed, Calum was starting to match Ashton’s anger.

Stop calling her that.”

Furrowing his eyebrows, Ashton stared at Calum in disbelief. 

Are you defending her? For fuck’s sake you’re supposed to be my best friend, not hers. But then again, what kind of best friend tries to sleep with the girl who was my-”

Before he could finish his sentence, Bryana spoke up from behind him, the first time since Ashton came barging in.

“Ash why do you care so much?”

You saw his face falter before looking back to face her.

“I don’t care”

Then turning back to you, he made sure he held your eyes.

“She means nothing.”

Feeling like the wind just got knocked out of you, you turned your head to face the floor.

I just don’t think she should be here right now. She obviously wasn’t invited for a reason. No one needs a bitch around.”

It was at this point that Calum couldn’t take it anymore, he rushed forwards, pushing Ashton against the wall.

I swear to god, say one more bad thing about her and i’ll-”

“AND YOU’LL WHAT”

Pushing Calum back, Ashton started raising his fist to hit him.

Scared, you jumped off the bed, putting yourself in front of Calum as Bryana tried pulling Ashton away. 

GOD JUST STOP!”

Grabbing Calum’s hands, you tired to push him back. 

Looking back towards Ashton, you saw him clenching his jaw as he stared down at your hands against Calum’s. 

Ashton, you want to talk? Fine lets talk. Alone.”

Looking up to meet your eyes, you could tell he wasn’t just angry but… hurt?

No, I’m not leaving you with him” Calum said, trying to push you behind him.

Cal i have to do this” 

Giving his hand a slight squeeze, he looked down, giving her a pleading look to not make him leave.

You heard her mate, she wants to talk. Alone. Get out.”

Turning towards Ashton, you felt so frustrated. 

You understood why he was pissed. He had every right to be. 

But to treat his friend like shit? 

That wasn’t okay.

If you do anything to hurt her-”

“You really think i would hurt her? Lets remember who was her best friend first. Let’s remember who HAD her first”

Knowing what he meant, you didn’t understand what was going on between them. 

It’s like he was rubbing what happened between you and him in Calum’s face. 

Why? 

Both of you just stop. Calum i can handle myself okay? I’m fine. I promise”

Nodding his head, he reluctantly started walking out of the room, making sure to glare at Ashton the whole way. 

With Bryana right behind him, they both left the room, leaving you and Ashton to finally deal with each other.

Wasting no time, he jumped right into it.

Why did you leave?” 

Looking down, you knew you couldn’t face him when you spoke.

I was scared.”

“God, of what?”

OF LOSING YOU. LOSING MY BEST FRIEND”

Shaking his head, he walked over to the wall, sliding down to put his head in his hands.

Why would you lose me?”

“I don’t know”

Walking over to the wall, you slid down next to him.

Its not exactly an easy thing waking up naked to your best friend”

“But what does it matter? Its not like it meant anything!”

Pulling your knees into your chest, you couldn’t help but feel a sharp pain in your heart.

Noticing your reaction, Ashton instantly felt strange.

It didnt mean anything… Right?”

Shrugging, you didnt know what to say.

I mean… i don't know…. maybe”

Groaning, he threw his head back against the wall.

Jesus this is so fucked up”

Not the response you were hoping for, you started to get up. You couldn’t be here in the same room with him anymore.

Wait, stop. Don’t go.”

Getting up with you, he stared at you, looking as if he was in battle with himself.

Look… I just… Maybe…I feel… no… fuck… You need to realize this can’t work. We need to focus on our friendship, thats it”

Looking away, you felt the tears falling freely now. 

But why?”

Stepping closer, he wiped them off your face, sighing again.

Because”

Growing frustrated, you smacked Ashton’s hands off your face, stepping backwards.

Jesus Ashton, why can’t you just be a fucking man and say the truth! Im sick of you beating around the bush, acting like I’m too dumb to understand! Just fucking SAY IT!”

“BECAUSE I DONT FEEL THE SAME WAY ABOUT YOU!”

Feeling like you were just slapped in the face, you stayed quiet.

Fuck.. I didn't mean.. Oh man”

Walking away from you, he pinched the top of his nose, clearly torn about this.

Look i have Bryana now. She’s amazing and i can’t mess that up. I don’t even want to mess this friendship up. That’s all this is, a fucking friendship.” He said, sounding like he was trying to convince himself more than he was trying to convince you.

But, you knew there was still something he was hiding. 

Or at least lying about.

Then why do you care so much about what just happened with me and cal?”

Stopping, he gave you a straight look, trying to mask whatever he was feeling.

I dont. I just don’t think he’s the right one for you to be with. You know how his past is. You can do better.”

Scoffing, you laughed darkly.

What the fuck does his past have to do with anything. Why are you acting like this? So what if we might have hooked up if you hadn’t barged in. It wouldn’t have meant anything.”

“You don’t know that” he answered a little too quickly, looking away from you.

Completely done with the conversation, you weren’t holding anything back anymore.

What does that even mean! Ashton I’m not stupid, I can tell theres something you’re not telling me! Just spill it already!”

“It doesn’t matter.”

Walking up to him, you got in his face, yelling.

THEN WHY DO YOU CARE!”

“CANT YOU JUST DROP IT? I SAID IT DOESN’T MATTER! GET THE FUCK OVER IT! I ALREADY SAID I DONT WANT YOU! WHAT ELSE IS THERE TO EXPLAIN!”

Nodding your head, you stepped back.

You’re right, there is nothing to explain. Just like theres nothing more to this friendship. We always promised to keep no secrets between us, but that obviously changed. I know i fucked up by running away from this, but I’m owning up to it right now. And I’m so fucking sorry for leaving you alone. But I’m here now. I came here today to fix things. To be completely open with you. And i was. But you apparently can’t do the same for me. I know you’re hiding something, but you’re too much of a chicken shit to look me in the eye and tell me the truth. So I’m done. This friendship is done. I can’t pretend to be okay with this anymore. I have to go.”

Moving past him, you tried to walk out, but he wrapped his hand around your arm, pulling you to stay.

You don’t mean that. Please tell me you don’t mean that.”

His voice cracked at the end of his sentence. 

Looking at him, you gave him one last chance.

Tell me the truth”

Shaking his head, he let a few tears slip.

I can’t.”

Pulling your arm out from his grasp, you shrugged your shoulders.

Then i can’t be friends with a liar”

Opening the door, you walked out, leaving Ashton by himself.

Not even going to look for Calum to say goodbye, you walked right out the door, straight to your car.

The whole time you were driving, you stayed numb. Everything that just happened was like a blur.

Once home, it still didn’t hit you. 

Nothing felt real until you walked into your bedroom, catching sight of an old picture of you and Ashton from when you were younger. Walking up to it, you grabbed the frame of your dresser, finally feeling it all hit you.

The whole point of running away was because you were scared to lose him. Feelings or not, he was your best friend. 

But it didn’t even matter. 

You still lost him.

Curling up on your bed, you hugged the picture frame to your chest, slowly crying yourself to sleep.

It didnt last long.

The next thing you knew, you were hearing your doorbell chiming repeatedly.

Confused, you got up off the bed, stopping by your dresser mirror.

Jesus you looked like hell.

Running down the stairs, you looked through the peep hole to see Calum looking completely distressed, slightly pulling at his hair.

Confused, you opened the door, ready to ask him why he was here, but he started rambling right off the back, not letting you talk.

Please tell me what you told Ashton was not true.”

Staring at him, you didn’t know exactly what he meant.

Not giving you a chance to ask, he kept talking, answering your question.

What happened between us in that room was 100 percent real. At least for me it was. And i know it was for you because i felt it. You were getting lost in me the same way i know I’ve been lost in you for years.”

Letting your mouth drop, you couldn’t believe what was happening right now.

I know you think you have feelings for Ashton, but just consider the thought of being with me. Ive had the hugest crush on you ever since Ashton brought you around. Shit i think i might even love you. Ive just been to much of a pussy to say anything. But I’m done hiding around, I want you. Ashton may not realize how perfect you are but i do. Please just please give me a chance to make you feel like you’re the only one in the world.”

“Cal I-”

Not letting you finish, he rushed up, grabbing you face in his hands, and kissed you.

First stiff, you tried pushing him away but just like earlier, you felt yourself melting against him.

There was just something about him that made you feel… perfect.

When he pulled back, he stared in your eyes.

I know this is a lot to take in but i can’t let you go. Not the way ashton did.”

Moving to kiss you on your forehead, he backed away.

Don't say anything yet. Think this completely through, okay? ill wait forever if i have to. Just don’t wait around for a guy who obviously doesn’t know a good thing when its right in front of him”

Walking away, you watched him get into his car, never once looking back to you.

Closing the door, you didnt know how to feel.

What the fuck is going on today?

Shaking your head, you started to walk back to your room, completely dazed, hearing your phone chime.

Running up the stairs, you ran over to your bed, feeling your heart drop.

Holy shit this is not happening

Staring at your phone, you knew all hell was about to break loose.

You wanted to know the truth? 

You got it.

But now you didn’t know if you wanted it anymore.

You didn’t even know what you were supposed to do.

Or who you were supposed to choose.
