I very much want chickens, but something I don't know is how to tell when a chook is enjoying something vs tolerating something vs quietly seething and waiting to take revenge

one of the great things about chickens is that they don’t seethe (quietly or otherwise) or take revenge - they just don’t have much of a concept of either of those things. for the most part, if a chicken doesn’t like something, it will tell you right away by yelling, struggling, or both.

for example, if a chicken doesn’t like being held, it will yell and struggle when you pick it up. it may scratch you or even peck you in the process, depending on how unhappy it is. if you can manage to keep ahold of it until it realizes you aren’t letting go, it will probably quiet down and tolerate being held. if it isn’t too distressed, it might realize “hey, i’m not dying, this isn’t so bad,” and calm down and enjoy some nice neck skritches (or even fall asleep in your arms, my hen does that once she’s done kicking me with her sharp feet).

as for chicken body language, i kind of read it subconsciously so i’m not sure how to explain it very well, but i’ll do my best!

  • a happy, relaxed chicken who is enjoying skritches, a dustbath, a sunbath, or just a nice hangout, will often blink their eyes slowly and sort of squinch their eyelids. this video is a good example of this behavior: x
  • if a healthy chicken is voluntarily lying on their side, that means they feel extremely calm and secure. example: x
  • in this video (x), my pullet dynamite is drowsing while i pet her head. i’m not restraining her; she sat down on my stomach because she wanted to, and she is free to go anytime. the first time i touch her ear, she shakes her head because it tickles. the second time, she starts to get annoyed with me. you can see how she wakes up, moves around, and rejects my attempts to continue to pet her. right after i stopped filming, she stood up and left. also notice how she opens her eyes all the way, indicating that she’s no longer all blissed-out and snoozy
  • in this video (x), the pullets are anxious and on-edge because they spotted a potential “predator” (in this case it was probably a crow or an airplane they saw out the window). notice the jerky movements and the outstretched necks. this is the body language of a moderately agitated chicken
    • if a flock of chickens are scared of something, you WILL hear about it. the call that they’re making in the video is a typical alarm call and it’s quite loud. chickens may stay quiet if they’re hiding from a hawk, but otherwise, they make a big fuss about a predator or a potential predator
  • in this video (x), the pullet doesn’t like being held and she’s telling us about it, but she’s not unduly distressed. she’s not enjoying being restrained in midair and she would prefer to be set down, thank you very much
  • hens are quiet when they’re happy, for the most part. if they’re yelling, they’re worked up about something. the thing they’re worked up about may or may not be serious. hens also make a big racket after laying an egg
  • chicks peep and trill all the time, sometimes even in their sleep. if they start peeping very shrilly and loudly, it means something’s wrong. they might be cold, or hungry, or one of them might have wandered away from the others and can’t find its way back. if chicks are shrieking, you should check on them asap
  • roosters crow, and talk to their hens. they have a special call that they use to tell the hens they’ve found food. i don’t have a ton of experience with roosters, so you’d be better off asking someone else about them

it looks like i just spent an hour or so hyperfocusing on this so i’ll wrap it up since it’s getting kind of long. i hope it helps at least a little bit!

i’m still quite new to chicken keeping, so more experienced chicken keepers feel free to add on!

anonymous asked:

hi, it's theory anon! idk how many asks this will take, pls bear with me. My theory is that I think babygate was supposed to be a Zayn stunt, not Louis. I came at this backwards, reading up on Z leaving & BG happening after the fact, bc I had checked out of fandom during that time. When reading thru what happened, there are pieces that still don't fit. (1) L didn't "need" babygate, he was closeted w/ E & that was his established "brand". In order to make BG fit, they had to throw him (1/?)

right into cheating, partyboy (poolgirl, 0 to 60 on the nights out). Prior to that he was the stay-at-home monogamous boyfriend. But Z’s brand was the cheater, partier, the one w/ the problems & the randoms. Ppl think Z’s leaving was a stunt, but there is real anger on Harry’s part. If L got BG after Z left, I think that explains it bc I don’t his reactions are all fake. BG events used to coincide all the time with Z’s solo happenings. Like clockwork. Like they did in Jan w/ L’s for his solo effort… It wld have been great promo for Perrie, scorned fiancé. They tried to spin some cheating stuff after Zerrie split, but it didn’t stick, & I think it was supposed to. That weird time when L & Z just took off, right around when the J’s came into the picture. I can’t think of anymore rn, but there was other stuff, too. IDK if Z’s leaving was a stunt or not (I haven’t read on this enough, I’m sorry), but I think BG was going to be their promo push for him regardless, & I think he walked away from it, which is why he also had no other promo in place. - That’s all I have rn, haha, sorry to flood your inbox! I keep finding stuff that adds to this theory, though, and I’m wondering if it’s been brought up before? I haven’t read as much into the Zayn-leaving stuff, but I’m trying to catch up! Thanks for listening, hope this theory is as wild as you might have wanted! 

You know what…this isn’t that crazy when you think about it. Look at Zayn’s previous stunt girls:

Now look at who Louis’s stunt girls:

Now who does this girl look like 1DHQ would assign her to? 

Similar to how they branded each boy…

I’m sure their thorough moulding of each character included what their “type” was, given that there is a clear pattern. Zayn has gone on to date another high profile blonde, and Louis just recycled a past brunette beard. 

In terms of Zayn leaving being a stunt…this has been discussed at length, particularly by @mellygrant and here is a great post about it: (x

This is slightly controversial, but I personally think that the animosity that people perceive to be coming from Harry is a bit too over the top. Like Harry is doing an impersonation of someone who should be angry…which I also discussed here: (x

Honestly, whoTF knows what’s going on? I don’t. My life since March of 2015 can honestly be summed up by this:

You could probably send me a conspiracy that Niall isn’t actually Irish and that would be infinitely more plausible than what’s happened over the past TWO FUCKIN YEARS. I seriously can’t believe how long it’s been. And now they’re actually bringing it back around full circle to what’s her face because approximately no one has believed any of Louis’ stunts since then. 

I don’t think it’s all all coincidental that she’s back, and it points to the fact that Zayn and Louis’ stunts are always conveniently at the same time or linked to each other. Zayn drops a music video, Louis drops a BG bomb, like it’s gone back and forth between Zayn’s promo and Louis’ stunts for over a year. Now they’re not even trying to hide the connection…

(Sidebar: who’s gonna tell her about the bandana code? Noses, not it.)

As soon as I saw this I was like 

RIP to the two years of peace I had with out having to see her desperately using Louis for any kind of promo whilst slagging him off all the time. Her “fashion blog” must have done some serious tanking if she’s roping herself back into this mess for publicity. The story they’ve built around that breakup hardly made her look good for rushing back to his side the minute his last “breakup” hit the papers, but I guess karma is a bitch that way.  

The fact that around the time her promo for Tommy Hilfiger came out Louis followed them and Champion on Twitter…

And then they both start showing up in Vetements (a high fashion heaux version of Champion)

…makes it very clear, to me at least, that this is part of dat Industry Lyf™ in which Louis is being paid to be a walking billboard, as he has been for awhile…I’ve never been under the illusion that stars just love one brand THAT much. At least I hope he’s being paid or else this Tweedle Dumb and Dumber getup is just embarrassing. I mean how many ways can he make his “dates” seem like an outing with a sibling? 

Your theory, whilst wild, actually makes a lot of sense. So thank you for sending it to me! xx

i won’t believe you

Title: i won’t believe you
Pairing: Byun Baekhyun/Reader
Genre: Best Friend!AU/High School!AU
Summary: After she confessed her love for Byun Baekhyun, she had learned that first loves always ended in mistakes. Perhaps, she won’t ever trust the man even if he comes back after many years.

The sound of a ball hitting the floor was the first thing she heard when she got out of her house to go to school…every day. It was repetitive, probably some of those moves that basketball players call dribbling, but it was the sound that announced that her companion to school was there. Usually, there would be two males going  to school with her, mostly because one of them lived really close –in this case Sehun- and the other was her best friend, whose name is Baekhyun, and the three were all complete opposites. Baekhyun was the loud one, from the moment she met him in the first year of high school, wearing the uniform as he pleased and actually getting out with it because a smirk of his could have the teachers shrugging off his attitude because in all seriousness, he was a respectful kid. Apart from that, he was an exchanging socialite, meaning that he was never in just one spot, he hung around with the jocks when he liked to play around, he went out with the geeks because he actually really liked video games, he attended to drama club gatherings sometimes because he was bored and he actually liked acting, and then…he always came back to them, always spending the first moment of his mornings walking to school with his friends and the last shift was also followed by a walk back home. Sehun, on the other hand, was an absolutely tall teenager that seemed to be more on the nonchalant, quiet side and he preferred to talk when he wanted to sass Baekhyun, but both Sehun and she had been good friends since they both moved in to a strange country after years of living abroad. The two were alike, more often than not letting Baekhyun speak and do as many things to make them laugh, but unlike her…Sehun hadn’t grown feelings on the short, chirpy man.

That was the reason why it hurt so much.

It hurt to the point that she doesn’t want to go to school anymore, the fact that he is getting farther and farther away from them. Technically, Baekhyun went around social groups like a plague, but he always went back to them…there wasn’t a day he ignored them, but right now…he was acting completely different. She had decided to shrug it off, the fact that he decided to walk home without his friends wasn’t something that changed a lot, but what had been the last drop of the vase was the fact that he kept ignoring her. She knew this since he was her chemistry partner and he had decided to decline her calls to get together and do the project, telling her to do it herself and add his name on it. Strangely enough, she did, because she liked Baekhyun and she just wants to think these have been two bad weeks for him.

Hi! How would the Phantom Thieves react to their S/O (who is also a phantom thief) being critically injured and then taken hostage by the Shadow? I love your blog, i look foward to reading your stories

Thank you for your support, I’m happy to hear you’re enjoying your stay! <3 I have never been taken hostage before so I had to look up a few videos. ;A; Enjoy!


Akira:

  • Akira would fight off his urge to act impulsively because he didn’t want to risk anything while S/O was in danger.
  • He’s calm on the outside, but there are numerous conflicting thoughts racing through his mind.
  • I need to do something!
  • No, I should think carefully about this…
  • But the more I stand here, the more at risk they are.
  • Finally, he decides the best solution is negotiation.
  • With his refined speech skills, he’s able to convince the Shadow to let its guard down and release S/O…
  • But he won’t let the Shadow leave unpunished.


Ryuji:

  • Of course Ryuji’s going to be pissed off.
  • “Shit! Goddamn asshole, let them go!” he’ll growl, biting back any further comments as the Shadow crept closer to S/O.
  • “Oh, I’ll let them go… for a price,” it sneered with a smug inflection.
  • He clenched his fists, prepared to launch a series of profanities at the threat.
  • Who the hell does this Shadow think it is?! Why should I pay them for takin’ S/O hostage?!
  • However, he was willing to pay any price to keep S/O alive, even if he didn’t have much.
  • “F-fine, have it your way,” he hissed, tossing money at the Shadow.
  • It retreated shortly after, and Ryuji used various medical supplies to aid S/O, taking extra care to be gentle.


Ann:

  • “H-hey! Stop it!” Ann cries as a Shadow knocks down S/O and looms over them threateningly.
  • “If you want them back, you’re going to have to give me something in return,” it laughed.
  • Ann gritted her teeth, knowing she had no choice but to comply, and she spat, “You’re the lowest… what do you want?”
  • “You’re certainly spirited… why don’t you give me some of that stamina of yours?”
  • “Huh? How are you…?” Ann glanced at S/O’s battered body and shook her head. 
  • This wasn’t the time for questions, so she promptly nodded her head.
  • “Fine. Have it your way, just give them back.”
  • She immediately felt drained of energy, but she forced herself to go to S/O’s side and heal them after the Shadow retreated.


Yusuke:

  • Yusuke wasn’t having any of this.
  • When S/O got taken hostage, the blood drained from his face.
  • They were already in critical condition, and at this rate…
  • He suddenly became furious at the prospect, as a result of his fear.
  • His hand immediately grasped his blade. “You bastard…!”
  • The Shadow scoffed at him. “Stay put, petty thief. You know what will happen if you move, don’t you…?”
  • It inched closer to S/O and drew it weapon.
  • “Th-that’s enough! Stop this at once!” Yusuke ordered frantically.
  • “Give me your health. A life for a life, right?”
  • Yusuke narrowed his eyes at the Shadow, eyes filled with malice. “…As you wish.”
  • He braced himself for the sudden pain, but it nearly caused him to black out.
  • That didn’t stop him from slicing down the Shadow, and he rushed to S/O’s side afterward with a bag of medical supplies.


Makoto:

  • Makoto knew that S/O was going to get taken hostage as soon as they fell to the ground.
  • She felt rage boil her blood as she commanded, “Let them go!”
  • “That’s not how it works. Give me something good, and I’ll consider letting them live.”
  • Makoto loathed this familiar feeling of powerless, but the idea of S/O dying because of her was something she hated more.
  • “Have it your way… but I won’t forget this,” she seethed, forcefully chucking the item at the Shadow.
  • It retreated once it was satisfied, and Makoto darted to S/O to heal them and apologize for her incompetence.
  • Later, she encountered the Shadow once more and promptly put an end to it with vengeance burning like fire in her scarlet eyes.


Futaba:

  • “S/O, don’t worry! I’ll fix this!”
  • Futaba’s nerves were frazzled with anxiety, but her mind reeled with possible ways of saving S/O from the Shadow that had taken them hostage.
  • Her eyes widened as she realized a solution, but this would depend largely on S/O’s ability to react quickly.
  • After mentally reasserting her trust in them, Futaba tapped at her holographic keyboard, hastily writing the code for healing and then running it.
  • Fortunately, S/O caught on immediately, and they whipped around to attack the Shadow with a powerful physical attack using their restored health.
  • When it was defeated, S/O ran up to Futaba to high five her.
  • “You’re a genius, babe!”
  • The redhead blushed. “Hehe… it was nothing.”


Haru:

  • The Shadow quickly realized after the battle that it shouldn’t have taken Haru’s S/O hostage.
  • Her brows furrowed as she watched S/O be whisked away, and she was fraught with worry.
  • “No! Please, don’t hurt them!”
  • “Give me an item and you’ll get your wish.”
  • Of course, she handed an item over immediately; S/O’s  life was worth more than anything.
  • After handing S/O over, the Shadow chuckled as it retreated, and it checked the box that the item was contained in.
  • It turns out that the action of opening the box triggered the grenade laying inside.

anonymous asked:

yooo could we maybe get headcanons for how the tale, fell and swap skelebros would react to finding out their S/O was pregnant?

( *Oh hey, I just did an imagine on the skelebros finding out the details of human childbirth, so this is the follow-up to that! Enjoy~. )

UT!Sans:

His eyelights go out, and he’s completely still for so long that it seems as if he passed out standing up.  Pregnant?  So.. so it’s possible for a monster and a human..?  Okay, now he’s doing all the research he can, trying to make sure that this cross-breed spawn isn’t going to kill his S/O.  He’s not worried about raising the child–he raised his brother, after all, and he did when he was fairly young himself.  He’s just worried about the logistics and how society is going to handle this and are there going to be experiments involved and oh crap he'shavingapanicattackhelp.

While he tries to act supportive, he’s actually off in his own thoughts most of the time, so he comes across as distant.  He still makes puns and has that grin plastered on his face, but he’s sleeping even worse than usual, and it’s putting a strain on his laid-back facade–and his relationship.  There’s a whole mess of misunderstandings in his future.  

UT!Papyrus:

He’s absolutely OVER THE MOON EXCITED!  THERE’S GOING TO BE A BABY/BABYBONES IN HIS FUTURE AND IT’S GOING TO BE HIS?!  WOWIE!  THIS IS GREAT!  The first thing he does (after the initial jumping for joy and hugging his S/O) is update his status on the Undernet.  The world must know that he’s going to be a SUPER AWESOME DAD!  He reads every manual on childbirth and pregnancy he can find, and his S/O isn’t going to be doing anything soon.  Heck, she’s only two months pregnant, and he’s insisting she doesn’t lift anything and giving her foot massages every night.  He’s the type that’s going to make sure she eats a careful diet with just the right vitamins and nutrients, and he’s the perfect doting father.  The baby’s room is fixed to perfection within a day, and by the time the pregnancy is reaching its end, he’s a well of information.  Yeah, he’s well-prepared and a rock the entire time.

US!Sans:

His first response is excitement because WOWZERS, HE’S GOING TO BE A DADDY!  HIM!  THE MAGNIFICENT SANS!  AND HIS S/O IS GOING TO BE A MOTHER!  THEY’RE GOING TO DO THIS TOGETHER!
But.. then he remembers the conversation he had once upon a time with his neighbor about her being cut open, and his excited grin slowly fades.. and his eyesockets start watering.. and then he’s sobbing into his S/O’s stomach and shouting incoherent apologies.  He’s inconsolable, and his S/O is beyond confused and a little hurt.  Stretch has to be the one to explain the situation, and the S/O ends up comforting Blueberry and insisting that she’ll be all right.  After a gentler explanation of childbirth, Sans seems to take the news better, and he spends the rest of the night cuddling his S/O and asking questions like “WHAT DO YOU THINK THEY’LL LOOK LIKE?” or “DO YOU THINK THEY’LL LIKE PUZZLES?” and “WE NEED TO COME UP WITH A NAME BEFITTING A BABYBONES AS MAGNIFICENT AS OURS!”

Stretch ends up helping the both of them prepare for the baby because Blueberry can barely focus on one single task before he’s bounding to another, he’s so excited.

US!Papyrus:

Well, holy crap, he didn’t think it was possible for a monster-human child to be conceived and yet.. here’s his S/O, holding that little stick with the plus sign on it. The details of childbirth still don’t freak him out, but the responsibility of being a father does.  Sure, he raised Sans (and he still dotes on him as if he’s still a babybones sometimes) so he has experience… but this is a hybrid child.  He has no idea what to expect, and that terrifies him.  

So… he simply stares at his S/O when she tells him, and he’s quiet for a long time.  Finally, he gets a cigarette out of his pocket and starts to light it up, but she snatches it from his teeth before he gets it lit and tells him he can’t smoke around her anymore.  His hands are shaking, but he hides that by stuffing them in his pockets and leaning back into the couch.  

“ok.”

And that’s… all he says.  It’s like he checks out, even though his demeanor never changes.  If she presses him (“Okay?  Is that all you have to say about this?”), he’ll shrug and mumble “congrats.”  


Things go south fast and he doesn’t see his S/O for a solid week.  But after a talk with Blueberry about how “YOU’RE GOING TO LOSE YOUR HUMAN IF YOU DON’T GET YOUR LAZY BUTT OFF THAT COUCH, PAPY!”, the gravity of the situation seems to kick in, and he goes over to his S/O’s house for a long conversation.  Things get better, and while he’s still absolutely terrified, he actually starts to get excited over the idea of having a child of his own with his S/O.  

UF!Sans:

He starts sweating immediately.  His eyelights are extinguished.  Is there a sudden earthquake, or is he shaking?  What’s that sound?  
… Shit, that’s the sound of his bones literally rattling.
He’s going to be a dad.  Him.  Much like his counterparts, he raised Papyrus by himself in a rather harsh Underground, so he knows he’s capable of raising a child in this cushy Surface world, but.. still.
“a-are y-..you sure?  absolutely.. p-positive?”  Ugh, his stutter’s rearing it’s ugly head.  "i-i mean, are you.. do you want.. i.. i’m really..“

*i’m really not good enough for you, sweetheart.

But, he doesn’t finish the sentence.  Instead, he holds onto his S/O tight and spends the night trying to envision what his life will be like as a family.  He’s planning out everything the child will need, and even trying to come up with names.  By the next day, he’s actually.. happy.  However, he’s still going to have the occasional Dark Day where he feels like something horrible is bound to happen (because, really, there’s no way things can be going this good for him) and he takes those feelings out on everyone around him.  

UF!Papyrus:

NOPE, NOPE, THIS CAN’T BE HAPPENING, THIS IS ALL JUST SOME HORRIBLE NIGHTMARE!

Edge is still scarred from that childbirth video he watched.  He was so scared that any kind of intimacy could lead to a pregnancy, but his S/O had kind of laughed off his fears.  She didn’t think it was possible for him to get her pregnant, and so he had finally given in to his desires.. over and over again.  

Okay, maybe he was wrong about the whole yelling thing being the ultimate stress relief.

“YOU SAID YOU DIDN’T THINK THIS COULD HAPPEN!  ARE YOU EVEN SURE IT’S MINE?!”

… Yeah, he went there.  He didn’t mean it–he’s just absolutely terrified–but he still said it.  His S/O curses him, flips him off, and stomps out.  Then, he’s REALLY terrified because now he screwed everything up.  Did he just lose his child and his S/O?!  UGH, WHY IS EVERYTHING ALWAYS HAPPENING TO HIM??  He spends the day calming down and trying to come to grips with the fact that he’s going to be a father, and he stays up ALL NIGHT LONG researching human pregnancy.  The next day, he swallows his pride and apologies.  He’s holding a bag of pickles and ice cream, which only confuses his S/O, but then he launches into a big explanation of how he educated himself last night.  Well, at least he’s trying.  

He becomes fiercely protective the entire time and his S/O can barely even go to the bathroom without him trying to follow her in.  Edge has no chill for the next 9 months, and even less once the child’s born.  Sans ends up having to take on a lot of responsibility because Papyrus FLIPS HIS SHIT over every little thing.  

anonymous asked:

Hey! I don't know if you accept prompts, but if you do could you write something about the first week after Yousef's return from Turkey... like what happens after Sana and Yousef were apart (even though they texted and video called each other) and the dynamics of their relationship once they're in the same city. I hope you decide to write it! Thank you in advance! 😊

Hello Anon!! Thank you very much for this prompt!! I was thinking of writing something like that so I was really glad to see your message! I got a bit carried away and wrote 6200 words so I really hope you like it! As it’s really long I advise peopel who prefer to read fics on Ao3 rather than on tumblr to check it out here

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


[S :What time are you arriving at?
Y :14:56. Why you planning on coming to pick me up from the airport?
S :Elias said there no point since you’re with your family so you don’t need to be picked up
Y :Awwww you asked Elias if you could pick me up?
S :We talked I didn’t ask
Y :Sure
S :I hope you miss your plane
Y :No you don’t <3
S :No I don’t <3
Y : ok I have to finish packing, have a good night Sana see you in Oslo!
S :See you ]

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

She stares as her screen for a while and smiles. He’ll be in Oslo tomorrow. After being apart for a month and a half, she was finally going to see him again. She was going to see him smile and laugh and hear his voice. For real not just on the phone. They had talked on the phone a few times. She has called him for a few of their calls, everytime afraid that he might be too busy to reply but he never was. Or if he was he never told her and always took the time to speak with her. They also video called each other and she’ll remember forever that one time all his little cousins arrived while he was talking and he had to do the rest of the call with them jumping on him. She couldn’t stop laughing, the kids seemed extremely proud of themselves and Yousef seemed to hesitate between being annoyed at the kids and looking at them foundly.

They had sent each other texts. So many texts. He sent her a picture everytime he saw something she might like or that he thought was pretty. Once in a while he would ask her if she was over Stephen Curry and she would reply with a link to one of Stephen’s picture saying « hmm I’m not sure ».

She decides to go to his house, the next day, in the afternoon. She asks Elias if he is going to visit Yousef to which Elias replies « Uh, no, I thought I’d see him tomorrow, the guy just came back. Let him chill » Then, he sees the way Sana is looking. All nervous but also excited and he adds :
« Do you know what? I think I’ll go see him now. Yeah, he’s just came back but I’ll go say hi. Do you want to come with me? Don’t answer to that, I already know the answer. »
She laughs and thanks him.

When they arrive at Yousef’s place, his father is the one to open the door and he greets them with a big smile. He makes them enter the apartment. Sana looks around, curious to finally see Yousef’s home. Yousef’s father calls for his son as he makes Sana and Elias go into the leaving room. A few seconds later, Yousef arrives in the living room. He sees Elias and smiles widely. A smile that grows wider and softer when he sees Sana standing next to his best friend. A smile that mirrors her own as she can finally see him again. Damn, she missed him and his stupid smile and his stupid snapbacks and even the way he walks. He crosses the living room to greet them when his parents suggest that Yousef and his friends should go outside while they finish unpacking. Sana follows the boy into the backyard, her heart beating fast as she can finally look at him after so long. He is talking with Elias on the way but often turns around to smile at her and she smiles back right away every time. Yousef holds the door open for his friend to come out and when Sana walks past him, he brushes her hand with his fingers and smiles at her softly.
Once they are outside, Sana find herself at loss for words while Elias is asking Yousef questions. Yousef keeps looking at her and the simple fact of feeling his eyes on her after so long makes her feel like she is losing her mind. She doesn’t realize that she has locked eyes with Yousef until Elias says, a bit too loudly : « Ok, I’ll see you tomorrow ! I’ve done my brother duty, I’ll leave you two to it ! Bye ». And he walks away from them to leave the backyard.

« His brother duty ? What does he mean ? Asks Yousef
- Well, I wanted to come here but I wasn’t sure if I should come or not and if I should, should I come alone or not, so in the end he came with me.
- Never hesitate again Sana, you can come anytime.
- Thanks
- I’m serious Sana. Anytime. »
If he says her name one more time, she’s not sure she’ll be able to contain the beating of her heart from going frantic. What is happening to her ?

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

They are now standing in front of each other, smiling. Yousef can’t stop staring at her. Drinking in the vision of her in a blue hijab, dressed in white and grey. He feels as though he had been holding his breath all the time he was away and now that she is in front of him again, he can finally breathe.
She laughs quietly and puts her hands under her chin and he can tell she is a little nervous.
As he is about to say something funny, hopefully, to relax her, she takes a step towards him, looks up and let her arms fall to her sides. She raises them again slightly and he understands immediately what she is about to do. He raises his arms as well and, not even a second later, he can feel her hands coming around his waist and settling on his back. He never thought before her that you could tell so much with a hug. His hands are on her back and he rests his chin on top of her head. He can smell her perfume and he doesn’t think he ever felt as much as home as he does now. He sense her relaxing against his chest and presses a kiss on top of her head as if to say « I’m back for good, I’m here now. »

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

After a while, Sana raises her head to look up at him and slightly takes a step back. There’s something about being near him, being with him, feeling him next to her, that makes her feel so giddy. She’s high on him and it has only been minutes !
« I should probably let you unpack » she says right as he asks : « So where should we go ? »
He exclaims : « You already want to leave me ? We haven’t seen each other for 50 days and you already want to leave ? A hug and bye.
- No ! But your family surely need your help!I don’t want to leave, I’m trying to help you be a good son.
- I’ve been a good son all summer, I can take a break. I am staying with you.
- That’s good.
- Yeah, that’s good.
There is a little pause, then he adds :
« - Ah, I missed you so much Sana !
- I missed you a lot as well, Yousef.
As she says that to him, she raises her hand to take a fallen leaf off his hair . She has been dreaming about touching his hair for so long. She marvels at the softness of his curls and keeps playing with it even when the leaf is long gone. He stays completely still and she wonders if her touch sends chills down her spine like his does to her . He closes his eyes with a tiny sigh and she has her answer. She whispers that if they want to do something, they should do it now . He seems to wake up from a dream and agrees with her.

They end up walking towards the basketball pitch. They don’t have a ball to play with as tehy realize when they arrive. They decide to stay there nonetheless. They don’t have to play basketball, they have so many things to talk about.
Sana starts asking him questions about Turkey and what he did while he was there. She already knows many things as they’ve been in touch most of the time. But she doesn’t mind hearing some of it again and he adds more details and speaks about his family. He talks about the town where they live, Ankara. He tells Sana about the old castle that overlooks the city, about the beautiful great mosque with its huge that he is sure she would love. He remember going there as a kid and being in awe of the place. He tells her about all the food you can find and about the games he played with his little cousins and his trips to the country.

Yousef feels a bit ashamed to have talked for so long about himself even if Sana doesn’t seem to mind as she asked questions and laughed and smiled. She genuinely seems happy to listen to him.
He asks her about her summer and listens as she explains what she did with her firends and the troubles her squad got into. Her face lights up when she talks about her friends and their shenanigans. She also tells him a few stories about Elias that he cannot wait to use to make fun of his friend.
After a while, Sana says that it’s too bad he is only coming back now because she starts school in a week and a half so they won’t have that much time to see each other again and she’ll be at school and that will be complicated. He laughs and replies :
« I’ve only just come back and you’re already sad about what it’s going to be like in two weeks. Let’s enjoy what we have now first , shall we ?
- Don’t make fun of me, she says with a smile
- No but seriously, it’s going to be ok.
How time flies, he thinks, looking back on the afternoon they spent on that pitch a few months ago. He could only have dreamed back then, of sitting in front of her while she talked about wanting to see him again in the coming weeks and months.

Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Her phone rings and she answers right away as it is a call from her mother. Scared that she might be crossed because it’s getting late, Sana is surprised when her mother simply asks her if she intends on having dinner at home or eating out. She looks into Yousef’s eyes as she replies :
« - I’m staying with Yousef Mama, we’ll eat together »
His face lights up
« - Can’t get enough of me, is that it ?
- Shut up and find me a place to eat.
- Yes Ma’am ! »
She’s up before him and extends her hand to him to help him stand up. Just as he is about tto be fully standing, she lets go of his hand and laughs as he loses his balance and almost fall flat on his back. She can see him being a little bit shocked but before his ego can be hurt, her contagious laughter wins him over and she doesn’t have to wait long before he stops pouting and joins her.
When they’ve calmed down, they decide to go to a kebab place not far from where they are.. While they wait to order, Yousef dares her to let him order for her. When she asks why on earth she should let him do that, he replies that he want to see if she still trusts him after all this time.
“-All this time? You’ve only been gone 50 days Yousef.
- Only? Only?! Wow. Only 50 days. Ok. Here I was thinking you had missed me but I see that I was wrong. I’ll leave you there if you don’t mind, I have an ego to repair and it might take some time.
She is laughing too much to chase after him as he dramatically leaves the restaurant. She knows he will be back soon so when her time to order comes up next, she orders for him as well and goes to sit at a table in a corner. After a few seconds, she hears footsteps behind her and hears a voice saying:
“- You didn’t even come after me. You didn’t even look outside the restaurant. I am hurt.
- You didn’t even wait 5 minutes to come back.
She turns around to face Yousef and his sad pout.
- Seems like you’re the one who can’t get enough of me
- No lies there, he replies as he sits down in front of her
His confession, which could barely pass as a joke, makes her blush which he notices right away. Of course.
- Did I make you blush? Did I manage that? You’re flustered because of me!
- Well you can talk! Go back and rewatch that video where you receive my call, you couldn’t even it or stand still!
- We will not speak about that video again, he says in a mock-threatening way
- Too bad, I thought you were cute in it.
Before he has time to react, their orders arrive and he can only try to hide his own blush to the waiter.

Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

When they leave the restaurant, they naturally head towards Sana’ home. He doesn’t even ask if he can walk her home, he wants to spend as much time as possible with her. On the way back, they walk in silence. Their fingers brushing slightly, their eyes meeting regularly and their lips curving into smiles. Yousef thinks that he could walk to the end of the world with Sana by his side. He’s lost in her smiles and her dimples and her twinkling yes when he suddenly hears a sound similar to the flapping of wings next to him. He turns around with a slight jump and shrieks when he sees a huge seagull next to him, he steps back with fear and a loud “Oooh!!”. He doesn’t even have time to process his fear and what happened that Sana is already bent in two exploding with laughter.

There goes my walk to the end of the earth with her, he thinks as he tries to calm his heart.
Unable to stop herself from laughing, Sana asks:
“- Are you afraid of everything with wings or only seagulls and swans?
- Hey! Swans are really scary ok? They can become violent and bite my fingers. And this seagull just surprised me , that’s all
-Uh uh, sure, is all she can reply as she tries to regain her breath
- It was huge Sana! And it landed right next to me!
- It’s alright, you don’t have to be tough with me. Don’t hide your fear of birds. I accept you just as you are.
- I am not afraid of birds
- It’s ok, Yousef, I don’t judge you
- Stop it
- When did it start? I am genuinely curious. Were you attacked by a pigeon as a child?
- Stop, I am hurt
She does stop teasing him but she doesn’t stop laughing qiuetly until they reach her door. He doesn’t mind the teasing. He doesn’t mind anything that come from Sana Bakkoush laughing.
She turns around to face him and smiles. He smiles back and for a moment, they just stand there looking at each other.

Once again, they don’t need words to speak. Eyes do just fine. Eyes can say many things. They can say “I’m glad to be with you”. They can say “I wish we could stay together longer”. I can’t wait to see you again. I missed you. I am so happy to be near you. I wish I didn’t have to go back inside. I wish we could stay like this forever. I think you’re beautiful. I believe you’re the best thing that happened to me.
Eyes can say I like you. They can even say more than that.

Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Sana takes one step closer to him and says
“Goodbye Yousef”
He takes one step closer to her
-“Goodbye Sana”
They are almost touching now
She brushes a curls away from his eyes and adds: “Goodnight”
He seems starstruck for a second and before he has time to react, she is walking to the door. She looks back at him. He seems to be at loss for words and just smiles at her. She chuckles and waves at him before opening the door.
Once she is back inside her room, she leans with her back to the door and whispers in the darkness and quiet of her room: “Be still my beating heart.”

Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

He gets distracted by her the next day when he is filming a video with the boys at Sana’s house to celebrate his return. He sees her moving round and he can’t concentrate on what the boys are saying which means he misses a lot of questions and gets teased a lot. The hardest part for him is when, after she catches up on what is happening, she comes and stands up right there in the door, in front of him. She isn’t just looking at him, he can see her laughing at what the boys are saying. But she’s so beautiful and he hasn’t seen her for so long (when you’ve been away from San Bakkoush for 50 days, an evening together is not enough to make up for lost time) that he feels like if he turns around she might disappear. He hears Elias telling the camera to excuse Yousef for being distracted as his sister is standing in front of them right now and the poor boy is so in love he can’t get his eyes away from her.

Sana laughs at that, announces that she is going back in her room and leaves. Yousef sighs and hopes she’ll come out before he leaves. He tries to focus on the video as if nothing happened but the boys do not stop teasing him and he suspects that they never will. He doesn’t mind really. Not when he is being teased about something that makes him so happy.

When they’ve finished filming their video, he sends her a text asking to come to the kitchen. He waits for her as he drinks juice. The boys are busy checking something with the camera so he hopes he can have a bit of time alone with her. He doesn’t notice her coming inside the room as he’s observing the boys. He hears a soft voice behind him saying:
“-“Meet me in the kitchen”. I don’t know if I’ve told you before but I don’t really like people who think they can summon me whenever they want.”
He turns around but she is smiling at him and he immediately feels better. He asks her if she slept well and she says that of course she did. She had troubles falling asleep as she was busy thinking about things but when she did fell asleep, it was very nice. He can guess by her smile that she couldn’t sleep because she was thinking about him. And he can’t think of a better feeling than being the one keeping Sana Bakkoush awake. Well, when it’s for good reasons and not when she is sick of course.
- So you had a good evening then?
- I had a great evening Yousef.
- Good
- Good
He hears the boys calling him and she does as well so she tells him that she’ll see him again soon and goes back t her room before his friends have time to see her.

Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

And that’s how it goes on. They meet often, to walk around town, to eat together, to play basketball. Sometimes, they plan it. Sometimes it is random. Just a text or a call. “Are you doing anything right now?” “I’m meeting you I suppose?” “And you’re right”.Sometimes, it just happens that at the moment when Sana has to leave her home, Yousef has to go back home . Obviously, they don’t have anyone else to met except each other.

Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

One day, after spending the afternoon in town eating ice cream and fooling around as well as going to buy a present for Yousef’s mother’s birthday, as they are walking down the streets, they walk pass and open window form which a music can be heard. The song is one that Yousef likes a lot. Sana asks him what kind of songs he likes and they start talking about music. He takes his phone and headphones out to make her listen to his playlist. They keep on walking as they listen to the music.

At first, it starts as simply listening to the music and telling the other what they think about the song they’re listening to, but it soon turns into a sort of game. Yousef tries to make Sana lose her headphone by walking faster or distancing himself from her. When she understands what he is doing, she starts playing the same game. In the end, they don’t really listen to the music as they are too busy laughing.

At one point, Yousef almost walks into a pole, but he avoids it by making a slightly twisted jump that looks like a dance move to Sana. It makes her laugh, but at the same time it reminds her of that time she found him dancing in her living room. She’d like to see him dance again. She only realizes she said it out loud when he replies with surprise :
- Really?
- Uh well, you’re a good dancer and it just that it kind of looked like you were dancing when you avoided that pole and so it reminded me that you’re a dancer.
- Haha, thank you Sana! Dancer might be a bit much though.If you want to see me again you’ll have to invite me to a party!

Before she has time to reply, her phone rings with the call to prayer. She hasn’t seen time running out.
- Oh, we have to find you a place to pray!
- What?
She expected him to tell her that he would walk her home as they weren’t that far from her house.
- Yes, we find you a place to pray so you don’t have to go back home right away.
She smiles at his obvious desire to spend more time with her. They find a small little garden at the end of the street and, as she’s looking on her phone for the right orientation, she sees him taking his jacket off. When she asks him what he is doing, he replies ,as if it is obvious, that he is going to give her his jacket for her to pray on.
- Really?
- Well, you need something to pray on and you can’t use your own cardigan, it’s too delicate to put it on the ground.
She hesitates but he’s already putting his jacket in her hand and walking away to give her space and peace.

Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

He waits for her to finish, making sure that no one walks over to where she is.
He slightly turns around to see Sana kneeling down and putting her forehead on the ground. On his jacket. He laughs to himself as he thinks of all these romantic comedies showing a boy giving his jacket to a girl when she’s cold. Here he is giving Sana his jacket to pray on. She probably wouldn’t accept his jacket even if she it was really cold. We’re a strange pair,he thinks, we’re one of a kind. She is one of a kind.
She comes back when she has finished and hands him back his jacket neatly folded and he can see in her eyes that she is filled with a new kind of emotion. Seeing her so strong in her faith, he feels a sort of pride at the thought that this girl thinks he is good enough for her. Her faith is so beautiful, it shines through her. And it only makes him love her even more to see her so dedicated. She takes her phone out and tells him that it is now turn to listen to her playlist so she can teach him about real music.
- “Real music? You seemed to enjoy my “fake” music before.
- I didn’t hate it but wait until you listen to what I listen to. You are going to get your mind blown.

Instead of walking around, they sit on the grass and after a while he has to admit that her taste in music is indeed remarkable. The evening goes on until it’s time to go back home. As usual, he walks her back. And as usual, they stops in front of her door smiling at each other, staying silent for a little bit.
- “I’ll send you a song to listen to before you go to bed when you’re inside.
- Can’t you just tell me what it is now?
- No, it’s a surprise!
- Well I better hurry then, so I can listen to it.”

Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

When she has taken her hijab off and changed into her pajamas, she receives a link from Yousef to a 4 hours long track of lullabies with a simple messag that says “Sleep well”.
A few seconds later, as she is till laughing, he sends her text with a link to Roo Panes’s Lullaby Love saying “The one before is really serious music but you should still listen to this one.”
And she listens to it on repeat until she falls asleep dreaming of a sweet boy singing her a song about angels and love.

Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

One Saturday, Sana and the girls are wandering around in a park and laughing as they are enjoying the last weekend before school. They decide to settle on the grass near a fountain when Sana, who’s laughing with Chris, hears Vilde asking her
-”Sana, isn’t that your brother with his friends?
She turns in the direction Vilde is pointing at and ,indeed, here is her brother with Adam, Mutta, Mikael and…
- “Oh, Yousef is here as well!”

Sana is now thinking back to the conversation she had with Elias this morning. He asked her if she would be at home all day as he was planning on shooting a new video with the boys. She had told him she had plans with the girls and would be out all day. He had been insistent and asked her where she would be. When she told him she didn’t know exactly what they were going to do, he replied:
- “Come on Sana, you always have at least an idea of where you’re going!
- OK, we’re thinking of going to the park .
- Which park?
- The one near Chris’s house.
- Great! Great idea!
- Why are you so interested?
- I’m paying attention, you should be thankful .
- Yeah, right. “

Now she understands that he was planning on surprising her and meeting her “by luck” with his friends. She takes the lead as they walk towards the group of boys.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Yousef is sitting next to Mutta, his eyes semi closed, enjoying the sun on his face, not really listening to whatever Elias and Mikael are arguing about. He feels Mutta nudging his side and without opening his eyes, asks:
“- What is it?”
- Look! “

He finally opens his eyes and follows the direction Mutta is pointing at to see something he did not expect at all. Someone actually. Sana. Sana and her friends. He sits up right away. What is she doing here? She told him she couldn’t see him today because she was with her friends and now she’s walking towards him and the boys. With her 4 friends on both sides of her, he thinks she looks like a princess in company of her ladies in waiting. Her stride is assured and she’s walking straight to Elias. After slightly glancing his way and smiling at him (a smile that he did not return like a lost puppy seeing his master again whatever Mutta might say in his ear), she stops in front of her brother who looks at her with a smile that Yousef can only qualify as trying to be innocent.

“-“I’m paying attention, you should be thankful”, she says with an exaggerated tone
- Hello sister! And sister’s friends!
- Hello Elias!
- Hello boys!
- What a coincidence! What are the odds of you going to the same park I mentioned going to this morning?
- Indeed sister what are the odds?”
Yousef starts to understand what is going on
- “So that’s why you insisted on us going outside when we arrived at your place? You wanted us to meet Sana? He asks Elias
- Aren’t you happy to see Sana? asks Mikael with a smile
- What a stupid question, of course I am! I am just wondering why Elias set this up.
- Seems to me like he wanted to see the two of you together, says Sana’s friend, Eva, pointing at Sana and then at him.
-What?? Sana and Yousef turn to Elias at the same time
- You are two of my favourite peope why would I not want to see you at the same time?
- Stop the bullshit, Elias
- Sana can you really blame us for wanting to see you and Yousef together? Asks mikael.
- We wanted to see the cuteness and tease the two of you. So get ready, says Mutta
- I like your brother’s friend Sana, says Chris
- Really? Cool! Mutta stands up to high five Chris
- Well, now that we are together, we should do something together! Exclaims Sana’s friend Vilde. Let’s go buy an ice cream!
Everyone agrees without waiting for Sana or Yousef to give their opinion and the group starts walking away from the fountain.

He goes up to Sana to assure her that he had no idea about Elias’ plan to reunite them.
-“It’s alright Yousef, I don’t mind
- It’s just that you were enjoying your time with your friends so…
- I’m starting school on Monday, which means I’ll see them everyday.It’s ok if you distract me a little from them.
- Good!“

He tries to stays next to Sana as they walk but he is soon forced to stay with Sana’s friend as they apparently need to tell him something really important. Turns out they simply want to know how it’s going between him and Sana. They don’t seem really noisy. More concerned and curious that everything is going well for their friend. Eva asks him about his feelings for her wondering how long he has been crushing on her
- Uh, I’m not sure I can tell you that;
- Oh come on ! We won’t tell her, we promise! Says Vilde
- Why should I trust you?
- Hey, we are her friends ! Says Chris
- We are really happy that you two are happening, it’s so nice to see Sana smiling so much and being happy! You two are made for each other!
- That’s why they’re soulmates Eva! Says Vilde
- Soulmates?
Did he hear that right?
- Did Sana say that?
- Uh no, you did, replies Eva
- What? I never told her…Wait a minute, Noora!
He turns to face the girl who apparently told everyone his secret.
- You told them?
- No she told Sana! Replies Vilde
- Ok, says Noora, don’t freak out, but yes she knows you texted me and she knows what you said.
- You told her about the texts??
Yousef doesn’t think he ever felt as embarrassed as he does now. Freaking about about a swan or a seagull in front of Sana is nothing compared to this
- Well, I showed them to her actually.
- So she has read every single one of them?
- Yes but don’t worry Yousef they were all super cute!! exclaims Vilde
- But still… What do I look like now?
- Well, she is still talking to you so that’s what matters! Says Chris
He looks in front of him at Sana who is laughing at one of Mutta’s joke. So she knows. She knows the extent of his feelings for her and instead of running away because of how strong they are (the only reason why he hasn’t told her yet), she is still there. Which means there’s a chance her feelings for him might be as strong as his for her and he suddenly feels as though he could fly.

Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

On Monday, Sana is starting school again for her last year of high school. Chris told her she would pick her up before heading to school so they could meet the girls and arrive together to mark the occasion. She is excited at the prospect of it being her last year but she also knows that this year is going to be hard and will demand her full investment.

She steps out of the building but instead of finding Chris waiting for her at the door, she finds Yousef . She stops in her tracks. What on earth is he doing here?
- Hello Sana! Ready to start school?
- Hi! Are you meeting with Elias?
- This early? I’m here for you.
- For me?
- Yeah, I thought you might like me to walk you to school as it’s the first day and everything.
She would love that but she can’t let the girls down, she knows it means a lot to them that they start the year together.
- I am sorry Yousef but… Chris should be here any minute now, I’m meeting the girls before going to school. But I would’ve loved to go to school with you! I just have other plans.
- Do you really?
- Yes, I told you, the girls…
At this moment, her phone signals her that she has a new text. It’s from the girls’ group chat, a message from Chris saying “Enjoy your surprise, we’ll meet you in front of the school!”.
- Wait, they organized this?
- Actually, I wanted to do it so I thought I’d check with them at what time you start and if you usually walked to school with one of them and they came up with the idea to make you believe that Chris would pick you up. Are you happy?
- I am…, she can’t finish her sentence as she is smiling too wide. I am really happy Yousef!

She immediately sends a text to the girls: “THANK YOU”. Once she has put her phone in her pocket, she looks up at Yousef and hugs him slightly. He is surprised at first but hugs her back and laughs. She is trying to not show how giddy she feels at the thought of walking to school with him. This is so official. People are going to see them together. People of her school, that she doesn’t know will know about one of the most precious thing in her life. And she doesn’t really mind right now!
On the way to school, he makes her laugh with stories about Elias and the boys in high school. When they arrive near the school, she can see the girls looking at them from afar and waving at her. She is excited to start school but at the same time she wishes that it didn’t start so early so she could spend a little bit longer with Yousef.
-Thank you for walking with me this morning.
- Thank you for agreeing to walk with me.
- Well, I couldn’t say no after all the efforts the girls had put into it, could I ?
- Ouch Sana!
- Did you think I actually enjoyed your company?
- Pretend all you want, I know you do! Have a good first day of school Sana, I hope you only get the best teachers.
- I have a feeling that won’t happen but thank you. It was very nice this morning.
- Likewise
- Bye then!
As she turns around, he grabs her hand and says:
- Just want to ask you something, it won’t take long
- What is it?
- Are you over Stephen Curry now?
- I was not expecting that! She laughs
- Hey I just want to know who you’re going to marry, that’s all!
- Well, know this: I’ve been over him for a long time now. A few months I’d say.
As he gets the biggest smile on his face, she leaves him to meet her friends.

-

Her day started normally enough: doing some work in the early morning and waiting impatiently for you to wake up. One of her screens is set to a camera of your room, a second to your computer feed, and a third to your phone.

It was easy.

All she had to do was follow you home from the grocery store and slip in before you could close the door. She stood as close to you as possible without touching. She was always watching watching watching. Frozen pizza again? She frowned. That was no good. One day she’d have you eat with her: tamales, spaghetti, burgers. Anything but frozen pizza. She even sat next to you on the couch, watching you watch videos as you ate. She made sure to touch your phone and computer with a gloved hand, watching intensely as you typed in your passwords, and taking a sample of your fingerprints.

It worried her. The way you didn’t even notice your bathroom door creak open as you took a bath or how your bed felt warmer than usually when you finally laid down to sleep. It took every ounce of self-control not to reach out and hold you when you curled up. She had already been laying there, waiting, not expecting you to fall asleep right out of the bath. She got up carefully, leaning in to smell you before getting to work. Small cameras, mics, and sensors rigged every room in your home. Checking her phone, she grinned. She would get a notification if you so much as changed rooms. This way she could watch you even if she was busy with a mission.

Those days, she spent a lot of time watching a shifting feed of cameras tracking your movement: from your room to the kitchen to the streets to the store. Security cameras were everywhere nowadays. She kept track of who you spoke to, watching your conversations carefully, and eagerly collecting the selfies you sent to friends who insisted they weren’t receiving anything. Everyone you talked to for too long would suddenly find an emergency at work or school and clamber home, apologizing for the short conversation or canceled plans. On free days, she’d track your movement by the second, following you around the way she is now, pretending that the two of you were on a date.

It took her so long to plan everything right. It was a slow process, finding the perfect location to set you up, customizing her own security system to ensure you’d never leave, and collecting objects that you “lost” from your apartment to fill up your soon-to-be new home. All that was left was to take you. She had to make sure you were in an unmonitored space like this one. An odd shortcut you found on the way home. Did you need more time? Did she need to chloroform you? Lure you out to the middle of no where? Snatch you right from your bed? She imagined it desperately. You would whimper and cry and beg, but she’d make sure you couldn’t scream. Even imagining it was too much. It was almost like she could hear the pain and fear in your voice. It was like she was actually hearing you scream.

A shocking crack pulls her from her thoughts. Sombra’s mouth falls open. It wasn’t her imagination at all. A group of thieves had you circled. One of them had angrily clocked you across the face with his gun. Shut up, he sneered. Shut up! You whimpered on the floor, holding your bleeding face. A nasty bruise was already beginning to form. He kept a gun pointed at you as the others snatched your bag, demanding your phone and wallet. You gave it to them without protest and, right as you thought they were going to leave, he turned and clocked you across the head again. This time, you collapsed.

Sombra saw red.

You wake up in your room.

Was it a dream, you wonder? Certainly not, not with the way your head pounded or face stung. You turn over and grab your lost teddy bear, breathing deep. Your eyes snap open. Your lost teddy bear? You tear off the blankets (the ones that have been on your amazon wish list for weeks), and find yourself in pajamas you thought the washing machine ate.

The door beeps and you freeze. You hear a mechanical whirr and locks clicking before it swings open. Sombra smiles at you in surprise. Her clothes are wet and red.

Yonda!” She greets. She reaches forward to embrace your trembling body. She’s very sorry, you know. She should have taken you a long time ago. “How are you feeling?”

You tremble silently, mouth moving to speak, but no words come out. She coos, gently stroking your face and leaving blood against your bruises. You’re safe now. You belong to Sombra now. No one will ever hurt you again.

• Zen stayed up all night and listened to EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.

• The most recent one was about a someone who was a boyfriend who is away from home a lot.

• Zen had a sneaking suspicion that it was about him, so he confronted MC about it.

• “Hey MC, Seven sent me some links to some songs that you sang. Who is your most recent song about?”

• Cue the bright blushing now. They mumbled shyly, “you, Zen”

• “aww that’s cute babe, we should sing together some time. We’d be cute.”

Jaehee:
(I have no idea how to write Jaehee, so all of Jaehee’s might be short and ooc. I’ll try my best!)

• So, I feel like Jaehee would be on Tripter when she would see it

• She would be looking on some of Zen’s fan accounts

• One of the fan accounts said something like “here’s a song that one member of the RFA wrote”

• She would click on it, expecting Zen to show up, but to her surprise, it was you???

• Her significant other wrote songs?

• Jaehee decided to listen to them all, and she started to nearly cry at the recent ones

• They described her and MC’s relationship perfectly. oh my.

• Jaehee asked MC about them in the morning

• “Why didn’t you tell me? they’re really good!!”

• “Probably because they’re about you” MC was blushing pretty badly. oh god, they were embarrassed

• It was Jaehee’s turn to blush now.

• “Me? Why me?”

• “because I love you and you’re really good for inspiration”

Jumin

• Jumin would walk into the penthouse and not be able to find you

• Cue Jumin almost hiring the FBI to come find you

• but he hears music coming from their bedroom

• He walks closer and hears a beautiful voice going with it.

• “I wonder who MC is listening to? they’re a really good singer”

• He opens the door and sees that it’s MC singing.

• MC didn’t hear him walking in, thank god, so he continued to listen to his goddess singing.

• The song is talking about a man with dark hair and grey eyes? this man also wears a suit? who is this man?

• Jumin was about to say something to her because he was curious about who this was about?

• but MC saw him and jumped before quickly put their hand over their heart

• “Jumin, dear! you scared me!”

• “Hello, my love, may I ask who that song was about?”

• MC just stared at their lover for a couple seconds before sighing

• “You couldn’t tell who it was about, Jumin?”

• “No, should I have been able to?”

• “It’s about you, dear.”

• Jumin looked a little flustered by it, but it wasn’t obvious to see.

• “Oh, well, it’s a lovely song, my dear. If you’d like, I could get you some producers to help with your music. your voice is really beautiful. I’d love to hear some more of it.”


Yoosung

• Yoosung was playing LOLOL when he found out

• He was bragging to his guild members about how amazing his girlfriend was.

• As soon as he said MC’s name, one guild member was like

• “wait, MC (MC’s last name)”

• Yoosung was a bit freaked out by that. this guild member didn’t live in Korea. what.

• “Umm, yeah, that’s my S.O.”

• “DUDE! THEIR MUSIC IS SO GOOD!!”

• Cue confused Yoosung.

• Music? MC didn’t do any music?

• As soon as his next battle was over, he went and googled MC.

• so many YouTube covers came up. He listened to some of them, and they WERE good.

• He clicked on her channel and saw that she uploaded a video 12 hours ago. it was called “Gamer Boy” (Don’t JUDGE ME OKAY. I’VE BARELY GOTTEN ANY SLEEP)

• Yoosung listened to the song and found himself blushing. was this about him?

• MC walked into the room, looking over to Yoosung and nearly died.

• “YOOSUNG NO, DON’T LISTEN TO THAT!!”

• Yoosung looked up from the monitor

• “Why? it’s really good!”

• “because that song is about you! I-I didn’t want you to find out about them”

• Yoosung is BLUSHING like hell.

• someone help him

• “I’m sorry, Yoosung”

• “N-no! it’s good! it’s a good song! continue making them!”

Saeyoung

• He would find out during his background check on you, but he’d quickly forget about them.

•He would be sitting on the couch with you when he would remember

• “Hey MC, when I did that background check, I found your music on YouTube. Do you still do them?”

• MC immediately started blushing and ignored the question.

• “What do you want for dinner tonight?”

• “Are you ignoring my question, honey?”

• “Heh, what? no~”

• “You’re a bad liar, honey~ I’m going to go look your channel up again!”

• Saeyoung got up and started to walk towards his computer room, but MC ran there before him and used their body to barricade the door.

• “Babe, let me in the room”

• “NO! IT’S EMBARRASSING! PLEASE DON’T!!”

• Saeyoung easily picked them up and opened the door with them in his arms

• “I’m going to watch them one way or another, you know I will.”

• “Please don’t make fun of me…”

• MC was pouting and Saeyoung wanted nothing more than to kiss the pout off of their lips, but he had something to do

• He sat MC down on the bed and he sat in his computer chair, he quickly looked up their name and clicked on the most recent video 

• The song sort reminded him of himself.

• Damn, this song was kind of raunchy.

• He looked back at MC and smirked, they were blushing do brightly.

• “So, you wrote a sex song? is that why you were embarrassed?”

• “N-no, the song is about you, Saeyoung.”

• Cue that emoji of Saeyoung’s glasses breaking.

• “YOU WROTE A SEX SONG ABOUT ME??”


V

• V would probably find out the same way as Jumin, V wouldn’t know how to use social media, let’s be real.

• MC would be in the living room, recording the video of their singing for YouTube when V walked in.

• V heard the soft singing voice from the front room, and he’d be surprised.

• Was that his MC?

• He went into the living room to confirm his suspicions

• Oh, it WAS their singing.

• He stood and listened until they shut off the camera and sighed.

• “That was really beautiful, MC”

• MC jumped up, scared at first before they found V leaning against the door frame.

• “Jihyun, you have to stop being so quiet. I’m going to die of a heart attack at an early age”

• “I’m sorry, lovely. I just wanted to listen to your nice voice”

• MC started blushing and stood up. they walked over to V and hugged him

• V wrapped his arms around MC, smiling down at his love.

• “That song is about you, Jihyun.”

• You looked up at V, and his blush was light, but you could see it on his features.

• “Oh MC, thank you so much. it really was beautiful”

• “Don’t thank me, I should be thanking you for the inspiration. it really was lovely”


Saeran

• Saeran would find the videos on accident.

• He’d be looking through his brother’s computer to find something to use against him when he would find something labeled “RFA”

• He clicked into it and he saw your subfolder in there.

• Of course he would want to click on yours. he would want to know if Saeyoung had any creepy information on you so he could kill him.

• He just saw basic information about you that Saeran already knew, but he found another subfolder called “MC’s music”

• He clicked into it and saw some videos of MC singing.

• Saeran had to admit, they were pretty good. He found one that Saeyoung just put on the folder.

• He listened to it and it was describing some guy. 
the guy was badass from the outside, but on the inside he was a sweetheart.

• Who the hell is this about? is MC cheating on him?

• Saeran felt himself become enraged.

• He kicked the chair back out and stomped into yours and his shared room.

• “WHO IS HE MC?”

• MC was shocked as Saeran came in.

• “Dear? What are you talking about?”

• “THE MAN YOU’RE CHEATING ON ME WITH!!” Saeran growled as he glared at MC

• “I’m not cheating on you, Saeran! What the hell?” MC stood up and walked over to their lover, gently touching his arm.

• Saeran shrugged their arm off, continuing with his glare down at them.

• “Saeran, I don’t know what you’re talking about! I’m not cheating, baby!” MC frowned, putting her hands on her hips.

• “THAT SONG YOU WROTE ABOUT THAT MAN! I FOUND IT ON SAEYOUNG’S COMPUTER, DON’T TRY AND LIE TO ME!!” Saeran started to tug on his hair

• “All the songs that I write are about you, Saeran. I’d never cheat, I love you too much for that.”

• Saeran looked at you for a second, taking in the blush that coated your face gently. He visibly relaxed and reached out to pull you into his arms

• You accepted his hug and softly placed your head on his chest

• “I’m sorry for yelling at you, MC”

• “I’m sorry for not telling you about the songs”

• Saeran looked down at you, “Why were they on Saeyoung’s computer?”

• “Saeyoung and I were making a CD for you for a gift. that song that you listened to was literally called ‘Saeran’s Song’”

• Saeran sighed, placing his head on top of yours.

• “Hey MC?”

• “Yes, Saeran?”

• “I love you”

• “I love you too”

(I hope this is good!! ♡)

When Adrien Agreste learns that Ladybug is none other than Marinette Dupain-Cheng, he feels like he’s been struck by a bolt of lightning—electrified, illuminated, and shocked to the core.

But he doesn’t know that yet.

All he knows is that in the two days that have passed since Ladybug came to the Agreste Mansion to help him save his father from being attacked by Jackady, he’s been replaying the events of the day in his mind over and over again, especially when he’s alone in his room in the evening.

The memories flash into his mind when he least expects them, distracting him from his surroundings completely. So when it happens again on this particular evening, he almost doesn’t even notice that Ladybug is standing on his window ledge, grinning and knocking on the glass.

Luckily, her knocks are loud enough to distract Adrien from his reverie, and he practically runs to the window to help her inside once he realizes that his lady is actually here in the flesh and not just in his imagination.

“Ladybug! It’s—it’s so nice to see you! What are you doing here?”

He hopes his cheeks aren’t as red as they feel.

Salut, Adrien! I, um, just wanted to check up on you, to make sure that you and Monsieur Agreste are doing fine. Just a nightly check-in, since it’s been a few days! You know, hero duty and all. It’s what we do,” says Ladybug in a torrent of words.

She hopes she doesn’t sound as nervous as she feels.

Alex comes in quietly, assumimg Maggie is asleep. It’s 2 A.M. and Maggie never responded to her last text. She probably fell asleep in the middle of replying amd Alex will have to find the phone before getting in to bed. Again.

Instead of an empty living room, Alex waks into Maggie on the couch. Her back is to Alex, but she is clearly still awake.

“Babe, did you wait up or did I wake you?” Alex asks as she walks toward her girlfriend.

Maggie sniffles before replying, “I’m awake. Didn’t realize the time.”

Alex hears the tears in her voice and immediately rushes to her; kneeling to be eye level. “Maggie, Whats wrong? Did something happen at wor…” She stops mid-sentence when she sees Maggie’s phone in ger hand. A paused video of what looks to be a battered dog on the screen. “Oh my god. I swear you’re an addict. How long have you been watching videos?”

“I just get sucked into the vortex, Alex. The 3-legged puppies who get wheels. The kids asking to be adopted by the guy who chose to be the dad.” Maggie blushes and sniffles a bit more.

Alex playfully rolls her eyes, “Is this why you didn’t text me back? That was almost 4 hours ago!”

“I was just checking facebook before bed and there was an Ellen video about a soldier’s wife and then another video, and another.”

“You’re impossible, you know that. I’m taking a shower.”

“But babe, you gotta see this dog reunited with her owner!”

“Sawyer, I will put a passcode on your YouTube app if you’re not in bed WITHOUT the phone by time I’m out.” Alex calls over her shoulder, feigning irritation. Her badass detective has the biggest heart and she wouldn’t have it any other way.

Maggie grumbles, “It’s not even Youtube, and I’m only obliging because I’m ready for bed!”

About 15 minutes later, Alex climbs into bed next to Maggie. She rolls over to face her, handing over her phone, “You only get one, Sawyer, so choose wisely.”

Maggie’s face spreads into a full-dimpled smile as she takes the phone and snuggles into Alex so they can both see the screen.

Hey, I don't know if you know a tumblr user by the name of rochichan, but they called your undertale animations amazing and said that their own art couldn't even compare. They're a really good artist too (they're the one who drew the gravity falls - heart heart head YouTube video). You should check out their account 0u0

Oh of course I know her!! (well, not personally (^^; ) ) but I follow her since she posted her Undertale anime gifs… and that was the same day when I posted my first ones on this account, such a coincidence if I think about it… I really remember this day very well, hehe… anyway, she’s really good! And it depends on the taste of the viewer I think… I recentely got an ask how her art style is much better than Bani’s! Everyone thinks different… though of course… every artist may think they are not as good as others… Well, I still think my art is super cheap balls (*^p^*) but that is only motivating me to become better everyday! And what is more exciting than to follow artists and see how they improve over years!

Under the read more are ### GIF conversation starters. All of these starters can also be used as tweets for your character, or can be expanded on to be used as para starters. There starters are so a variety of characters, from bubbly to child-like to bitchy.
Over the many years I’ve been RPing - on Tumblr, Myspace, and Jcink, I’ve come up with some pretty good starters. Paired with the right GIF, these one-liners, jokes, and/or little stories can literally go anywhere and be a big-time contributor to character development. I’m handing these off to the community so they can find inspiration to create their own.
All of these starters were written and/or edited by me. No credit is needed.

  • Have you watched that Netflix show Daredevil yet? I’ve heard such good things about it. I kinda wanna try it out.

anonymous asked:

I saw your Kensei headcannons which were really good by the way! I saw this video of this guy holding his sleeping daughter and him crying and kissing her head because he loved her so much. Can you write something like that for Kensei. I know that kind of hard because like come on, it's Kensei so if you don't want to do it, that's fine.

I’m going to try my best to make this as in character as possible so… pray for me fam. This also like the cutest ask on the dang planet.

Originally posted by leeseokminn

When you awoke to check on your little bundle of joy, the sight that greeted you was far from expected. Upon quietly peeking past the door to your newborns room you witnessed what could only be described as the most adorable scene to ever play out before you.

Kensei and your baby. 

And Kensei was smiling. Not that creepy smile either.  And he was crying? Maybe crying wasn’t the right word but you could swear there was a tear rolling down his cheek. This is private maybe I should go back to bed… But…

The possibility of seeing him like this again was slim and… it was just too cute. Staying at your post in the door way you continued to quietly observe. 

Your daughter let out a whine only to be gently shushed by Kensei and practically smothered in soft little kisses to her hair and face. Your heart nearly imploded. Oh my god where’s the camera? Privacy be damned you needed a picture of this. 

You quietly returned with your camera finding them in the same position, your baby girl still crying softly from exhaustion. And he did it again, he leaned down and peppered her face with little kisses. Only this time, he knew he was being watched. Damn I left the flash on. Oh well, I got the picture.

Startled Kensei let out a grunt and turned to the door, your baby still curled into his arms, nearly asleep now. You expected him to reprimand you, maybe demand you delete the picture; instead he just stared and quietly set his daughter in her crib. Is he blushing? You didn’t have much time to dwell on the thought. Before you could put the camera down, Kensei was already carrying you out of the room, bridal style.

“Hey babe lets go back to bed.” You weren’t about to protest.

Tonight was full of surprises. 

Pranking my Girlfriend

Request


“Hello everybody! So today is going to be another prank video, but its not going to be just any old prank video! Today’s prank will be played on my beautiful girlfriend Y/N. Now, I know what you’re all thinking ‘Joe don’t prank Y/N she’ll just break up with you blah blah blah.’ but I can assure you that we are still together, although she may still be a little mad.” Joe laughed awkwardly into his camera as the prank started to play on the screen. 

“Joe why are you making me watch this?” Y/N asked pausing the video. “I’d rather not relive this”

“Awe c’mon love, I spent so much time to this prank don’t you want to see the behind the scenes?”

“No, not really” She said crossing her arms. Joe reached over her and pushed play on the laptop before sitting back and watching the video.

8 months later part 2


Hey guys! I was really happy to see that some of you liked the story, so I decided to write a part two. From the beginning I thought it would just be one short story, but I got so many ideas so it might come out more chapters after this one, if you would like it to.

————————————————–

Part one: http://jackieswift.tumblr.com/post/156452687077/8-months-later

————————————————–

*Adam’s pov*

I sat there with a finish message and was just about to send it to her. When I remembered that I wasn’t the only guy she had liked during 2016. When she broke up with me she started dating Tom Hiddleston just a few weeks or maybe a month after. I was so destroyed at this point. The love of my life didn’t give me a chance to win her back, she showed me and the whole world that she was the winner of the break up when she was seen together with him. At first I thought it was a sick joke, my Taylor wouldn’t do that. Then, when I heard he had bought her a ring and she turned him down and he couldn’t stand it, it was over between them and maybe I had a chance. I didn’t knew if the whole story was true. But the first time I heard it, I hoped it was. Because if she turned the ring down she might still have feelings for me. My friends gossiped a lot about it, and Tom said something about don’t believe everything you read, but at the same time, they broke things off right after that.

I read the message again “Dear Taylor. I just saw your video and must say congratulations. The song is great, the video is too and you know when we first started dating, and how you were very insecure about your body, I’m happy you’re over it now. Because even though we are over, I still stand behind my words. You are the most beautiful woman I’ve met in my life. You seem to be so happy, and I’m really glad for you. I really wish you the best. I know this might come as a shock to you, but Taylor I miss you so fucking much. I can’t stop thinking about you. And if you wrote this song about me, which I really hope you did, please give me a call. -Adam”

I couldn’t send it. What if the song was about Tom. “Wondering if I dodged a bullet or just lost the love of my life”, that could totally be about Tom, or at least if he really was ready to propose and she turned him down. If she thought she loved him, but that it was too early. If he really gave her a “now or never” and she decided to go with never, because it was too early to call him the love of her life. She actually called me that, so maybe the song isn’t about me. And why would she see me around in all the empty faces when she met Tom right after we broke up. What if she replies something like “Hey Adam, good to hear from you. That’s so nice of you and I’m happy everything turned out great for you too. I’m sorry, but the song isn’t about you. I really miss you though, what do you say about two friends grabbing a coffee sometime next week? -Taylor”. Taylor is too nice to just be writing “Haha that ego, no it’s not about you.” but still. It’s a big chance the song isn’t about me and then I know it’s over for real. Then I know she will never be mine again. So maybe it’s best to think that I have a chance, because at least that give me some hope.

I deleted it. I couldn’t do this to myself. Taylor is probably having a part and is celebrating with her friends and everything. Why should I ruin her night? I still love her, so I can’t do that. That text message would make her so sad if the song is about Tom. Because if I had sent it and the song was about Tom, she would have to break my heart again. And I know that would break her too.

*Gigi’s pov*

I was sitting in Zayn’s lap. Feeling so happy. I’m only 21 years old, but I have found the one guy I wanna spend the rest of my life with. I had him right in front of me and I was so proud over him most of the times, but tonight I was a bit extra proud. Because my bestfriend and boyfriend had realised a song together and the music video was hot, mysterious, but still no kissing and nothing too much. “I love you so much” I whispered to Zayn. “I love you too babe. You know you are the most beautiful girl in the world right” he said and made me blush. I kissed him and heard how Taylor excused herself from the room. “Do you think she’s okay?” I whispered to Zayn when she was gone. “I have no idea, why do you ask?”. I gave him a serious look and then said “The song honey, it’s about Adam.”

OHH GUYS, was the first thing I thought to be honest. I loved this man more than anything in the world, but still he didn’t knew the story that he was telling in his song. He didn’t knew the song was about Adam.

“Adam?” he asked a bit confused. “Yeah, that guy you called di*khead on twitter, remember” I answered as I rolled my eyes. He started to laugh, “oh you mean Calvin Harris. I totally forgot his real name is Adam.” I started to smile, to me Calvin was Adam, but I remembered that because of their twitter fight me and Taylor hung out with out the boys most of the times. They met and hung out a few times, but still I got where it all came from. “I think I need to go and check on her” I said and kissed Zayn one last time before I started walking away.

I walked up, and asked pretty quiet “Taylor, where are you?” and didn’t get an answer. I walked to Taylor’s bedroom, and then I heard the sound I hated the most. The sound of someone crying their eyes out. I walked against the noise and it took me to her bathroom. “Taylor open up” I said with a pretty calm voice. “No, go back to Zayn. Have a great evening. I don’t wanna ruin this for you two. So go and have fun.” she answered.

“Open that damn door, I’m not going anywhere” I said, when she finally opened up I saw three bottles stand in front of her, one with red wine, another with whiskey and the last one with champagne. It smelled terrible in the bathroom. And when I lifted the bottles I realised it was a lot left, but still, she had been drinking so much more than her body could handle. I might need to take her to the hospital was my first thought. “What the hell?” I said and even more tears started streaming down from her cheeks. “Why did you do this to yourself?” I asked her while I tried to wipe her tears away. She laid down over my lap and said “He should have sent the text” I finally got up my phone and called Zayn so he could get a driver. But at the same time I started wondering about her words. The signals goes away….”ADAM” I said and Zayn answered “no, Zayn?”. “Babe I need you to fix a cab and a driver. FAST” I know he can hear it in my voice, that I’m worried. “What happened?” he asked fast. “It’s Taylor, she needs to get to the hospital.” Right away he hung up and I know that he tries to get a driver as fast as possible. “Gigi, I hate that I still love him. Did he have to do that?” Taylor said and then passed out in my lap. “Taylor, what did he do” I tried to ask, but it was impossible to get any connection with her.

I take up my phone and go to contacts and search for Adam. Click on text message and then writes in “What the hell did you do?” and click on send before I even thought it through…

Victor sulks.

At first he’s genuinely sad, sad enough that after practice he goes back to his hotel room and stays there for the rest of the day feeling foolish and heartbroken and wishing he could cuddle his dog.  (At one point he actually calls his sitter and has her put Makkachin on Facetime and leave the room so he can apologize; they’re not moving to a nice place in Japan with lots of beaches and a new special human for him to play with after all.)  He orders something forgettable off the room service menu that seems indulgent at the time, picks at it while flipping through the television offerings and finally succumbs to jet lag late in the afternoon.

Chris shows up at his door around 8pm with an ice dancer pair Victor remembers from the European Championship and two women he feels like he ought to know but doesn’t.  He hasn’t been paying attention to the new faces at competitions for a while now, hasn’t been following the up and coming Juniors the way he used to; maybe if he had he’d have recognized Yuuri’s face when he saw it, would have known his career instead of scrambling to learn about it in a fever rush after the GPF banquet.  Maybe things would have been different.

sincerelydorky  asked:

I would like to know how to respond when I see xenophobia in public and if the person being harassed would want me to step in and say something. I don't want to be racially insensitive and some tips when I see harassment would be helpful. Thank you.

Months ago, I came across a bystander’s guide to Islamophobic harassment created by an illustrator and filmmaker who goes by Maeril. You can check out her Tumblr page here. Her guide explains how to react when you see Islamophobic harassment or really any type of xenophobic harassment in public.

The guide illustrates when you see xenophobic harassment, then one should ignore the attacker and engage the person being harassed. I thought this technique was really interesting and can be applied to any sort of xenophobic incident we come across.

In psychology, we’re taught about the bystander effect which is a phenomenon where people do not help a victim when other people are present. We always expect someone else to step in. Well, when everyone has that mentality, then who will help the victim? No one. We have a responsibility to stand up for others when we see an injustice committed. I’ve seen a couple viral videos of someone on a plane or train getting verbally harassed and a common theme I’ve noticed is that people will record the incident or tweet about it but rarely will anyone actually intervene and help the victim of the harassment.

I think that the person being harassed would want someone to step in and ask if they’re okay. It’s always safer to only interact with the victim and see if they need help being escorted to a safe space away from the person harassing them. If you feel comfortable escorting them, then do that and follow up to see if the person is fine before leaving. In some cases, based on your judgement, you may need to call the authorities.

Booty Call (1/2)

(Part 2)

Genre: Slight Angst? (I don’t even know)

Warnings: Alcohol mention I guess

Prompt (from Phanfic): Dan is out with a friend talking about how much he likes Phil when he accidentally butt dials him.

A/N: I made the title a pun and it sounds like smut but it’s not I’m sorry. So this was a cool prompt I wanted to do and I stuck to it mostly I think. This is part one of two, part two should hopefully be up tomorrow or the day after as I’m almost finished with it, but we’ll see.
