You were preparing your morning coffee when Bucky Barnes walked into the room. He took his usual place, leaning against the kitchen counter, just watching you pour way too much sugar in your extra tall mug, like he did most mornings. The two of you were the only ones in the building to be found awake this early. Besides Steve of course, who routinely went out for a run every single morning before the crack of dawn. 

Bucky watched you with an amused expression, a lazy grin spread on his face and sleepiness evident in the way his eyes were slightly hooded. The coldness of the floorboards beneath your feet acted as a reminder that you shouldn’t be walking around barefoot on a cold November morning.

↳ Words: 2.900+ | Genre: Fluff/Angst | Pairing: Jungkook x O/C  | AU: Soulmate!AU

a/n: I wanted to write a fic like this for quite some time, and inspired by “Home” by Gabrielle Aplin, listen to he song if you can. I hope you enjoy, Thanks for reading, and i had fun writing this piece. 

Each piece must be seen as an individual. Unless otherwise stated.

“I’m a phoenix in the water, a fish that’s learned to fly, and I’ve always been a daughter, but feathers are meant for the sky. And so I’m wishing, wishing further, for the excitement to arrive. It’s just I’d rather be causing the chaos, than laying at the sharp end of this knife.”

Once, this little girl was sitting in the sandbox, where her parents placed her. They told her “Be nice with the other kids, and you’ll make new friends.” with a smile spread on their lips.

Like any other parent they want their only daughter to have friends, to fit in, even at a young age. The fact that they moved didn’t help much, Arya was a shy child, she didn’t like having too many people around, or it was because she simply felt uncomfortable next to other children, at a young age she already knew that she wasn’t like them, she didn’t share interest in the same things as them, even though she forced herself to.

“Why are you so quiet?” Julia asked Arya, as they ate lunch on the cafeteria. The latest conversation was about this new boy in school, Jungkook, most girls fell for him, but reality is that Arya couldn’t care less.

SUMMARY: With the coronation drawing near, M/C and Drake share one last moment together. For they know that they’ll never be more than a fairytale—one that ends before its happily ever after.

UNIVERSE: The Royal Romance


WORD COUNT: 1400+ words

AUTHOR’S NOTE: For Round Eighteen of #ChoicesCreates by @hollyashton and hosted by @kittenmusicals. The prompt was: ‘We are made of all those who have built and broken us.’ 

A result of this week’s chapter that had my heart breaking to the point where I had to write something angsty to cope with the pain. A possible Part Two to Falling Like Stars. Written while listening to Please Don’t Say You Love Me by Gabrielle Aplin. (Rating: T)

As a young girl, she padded down the hall and into her parents’ room with her squeaky bunny slippers on. She’d tug on her mom’s and push the storybook onto her lap, practically begging for her to read one.

She had always been fascinated by fairytales, by the proposal of a so-called happily ever after that awaited at its end. She had always loved how anything and everything seemed possible, of how even the dreams that were hardest to grasp could come true.

Tales of princesses and dragons, knights and adventures, magic and spells were what her mom would read to her. It was the place where all the problems the little girl had vanished in the flick of a wrist. It was where the hero could fight the dragon and win. It was where she was sure to find a happy ending, even if it wasn’t her own.

But now? Everything has changed.

I was tagged by @breval thank you so much <3

Relationship status: Singular, unattached and programmed for self-repair.

Favourite colour: All shades of purple and blue.

Lipstick or chapstick: Depends on the occasion. Usually I go for chapsticks though.

Last song I listened to: Gabrielle Aplin - Start of Time It always tugs at my heart so beautifully.

Last movie I watched: Wonder Woman. I actually watched it three times. Have I mentioned that badass ladies on screen always make me cry?

Top 3 characters: Oh god I have so many, don’t make me choose! lol At the moment I’d have to say… Prisoner’s Joan Ferguson, Wonder Woman’s General Antiope and Janice McCann from The Book Group. But trust me, we’d still be here tomorrow if I actually made a list.

Top 3 ships:  Three of my all time favourite ships are Sharenda (Sharon x Brenda from The Closer), Janeway x Tal Celes (Star Trek: Voyager) and Mirandy (Miranda x Andrea from The Devil Wears Prada). Neither of them are canon, of course, but apparently I like to suffer lol.

I am currently reading: Violette Leduc - L’Affamée. And fanfiction but that’s another story entirely.

I tag : @tigresswraith, @mirandaputsherbestbuttforward, @itslacroixsweetiedarling, @nervouspearl, @drmottershead, @hollowshadowwolf and whoever wants to do this :)

Please feel free to ignore if you don’t, as always!
