and then he never explains anything

anonymous asked:

Not sure if this is too vague (if it is, sorry!), but maybe a drabble where they talk about a bad relationship the reader had in the past?

You take a breath as you finish telling the boys all about your horrible ex. Both of them look pissed, pissed that someone had the audacity to treat you that way. 

“You know we would never do anything like that to you right?” Oak asks carefully stroking your hair as you lean into him. 

“No I know, I don’t think you would… I just wanted you guys to know what happened” you explain. Daveed leans in to kiss the side of your head, resting his forehead against you. 

“We love you so much babe. No one will ever hurt you like that again” he assures you. 

anonymous asked:

I know people get uncomfortable talking about Arya and romance because she's only an eleven year old girl. But I'm wondering about the age gap at this point in their lives and how it influenzes their perspective on each other. Arya has at least two years before she actually actively starts thinking about romance, at this point it's more of a subconscious crush. And Gendry, he's 14, is he more aware of his attachment to her? it would explain part of his resentment of being a bastard maybe?

im not among those people lol. if anything this is my area of expertise. idk how aware either of them are of the actual romantic subtext that surrounds them. honestly i think not very. and the social differences would have a bigger effect on their perspectives than age imo. gendry does recognize that he cares about this girl but their relationship can never exist in the world she belongs to. so he’s very sulky about being a bastard and ned d. existing ect. arya was attached to gendry too which is why it hurt so bad when he left her. she doesn’t understand how different his circumstances are from his. i think we’ll actually see develop a more overt crush on gendry tho. we don’t have two years to wait. when she meets him again she’ll be “a woman grown” (by westeros standards) bc her flowering~ is imminent. it wouldnt surprise me if grrm decided to incorporate new feelings with arya towards gendry to show that change. we already know she’s quite capable of having romantic notions (some involving gendry) so those will almost definitely be taken up a notch in the future. 

Le Petit Prince - quotes 🌠

Le Petit Prince (1943) is a novel by Antoine de Saint Exupéry, translated into English as The Little Prince.

🌟 1. Les grandes personnes ne comprennent jamais rien toutes seules, et c’est fatigant, pour les enfants, de toujours et toujours leur donner des explications.

Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.

🌟 2. Quand le mystère est trop impressionnant, on n’ose pas désobéir.

When a mystery is too overpowering, one dare not disobey.

🌟 3. La preuve que le petit prince a existé c’est qu’il était ravissant, qu’il riait, et qu’il voulait un mouton. Quand on veut un mouton, c’est la preuve qu’on existe.

The proof that the little prince existed is that he was charming, that he laughed, and that he was looking for a sheep. If anybody wants a sheep, that is a proof that he exists.

🌟 4. Mais les graines sont invisibles. Elles dorment dans le secret de la terre jusqu’à ce qu’il prenne fantaisie à l’une d’elles de se réveiller…

But seeds are invisible. They sleep deep in the heart of the earth’s darkness, until some one among them is seized with the desire to awaken.

🌟 5. Il ne faut jamais écouter les fleures. Il faut les regarder et les respirer. La mienne embaumait ma planète, mais je ne savais pas m’en réjouir.

One never ought to listen to the flowers. One should simply look at them and breathe their fragrance. Mine perfumed all my planet. But I did not know how to take pleasure in all her grace.

🌟 6. Tu as des cheveux couleur d’or. Alors ce sera merveilleux quand tu m’aura apprivoisé! Le blé, qui est doré, me fera souvenir de toi. Et j’aimerai le bruit du vent dans le blé…

You have hair that is the color of gold. Think how wonderful that will be when you have tamed me! The grain, which is also golden, will bring me back the thought of you. And I shall love to listen to the wind in the wheat…

🌟 7. On ne connaît que les choses que l’on apprivoise, dit le renard. Les hommes n’ont plus le temps de rien connaître. Il achètent des choses toutes faites chez les marchands. Mais comme il n’existe point de marchands d’amis, les hommes n’ont plus d’amis. Si tu veux un ami, apprivoise-moi!

“One only understands the things that one tames,” said the fox. “Men have no more time to understand anything. They buy things all ready made at the shops. But there is no shop anywhere where one can buy friendship, and so men have no friends any more. If you want a friend, tame me…”

🌟 8. Le langage est source de malentendus.

Words are the source of misunderstandings.

🌟 9. Voici mon secret. Il est très simple : on ne voit bien qu’avec le coeur. L’essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.

You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed. You are responsible for your rose…

🌟 12. - Les enfants seuls savent ce qu’ils cherchent, fit le petit prince. Ils perdent du temps pour une poupée de chiffons, et elle devient très importante, et si on la leur enlève, ils pleurent…

“Only the children know what they are looking for,” said the little prince. “They waste their time over a rag doll and it becomes very important to them; and if anybody takes it away from them, they cry…”

🌟 16. J'aime bien les couchers de soleil. Allons voir un coucher de soleil…

I am very fond of sunsets. Come, let us go look at a sunset…

🌟 17. On ne sait jamais!

“One never knows!”

🌟 18. Il faut exiger de chacun ce que chacun peut donner, reprit le roi. L'autorité repose d'abord sur la raison. Si tu ordonnes à ton peuple d'aller se jeter à la mer, il fera la révolution. J'ai le droit d'exiger l'obéissance parce que mes ordres sont raisonnables.
Alors mon coucher de soleil ? rappela le petit prince qui jamais n'oubliait une question une fois qu'il l'avait posée.
Ton coucher de soleil, tu l'auras. Je l'exigerai. Mais j'attendrai, dans ma science du gouvernement, que les conditions soient favorables.

“One must command from each what each can perform,” the king went on. “Authority is based first of all upon reason. If you command your subjects to jump into the ocean, there will be a revolution. I am entitled to command obedience because my orders are reasonable.”
“Then my sunset?” insisted the little prince, who never let go of a question once he had asked it. “You shall have your sunset. I shall command it. But I shall wait, according to my science of government, until conditions are favorable.”

🌟 19. C'est véritablement utile puisque c'est joli.

It is truly useful since it is beautiful.

🌟 20. ‘Où sont les hommes ?’ reprit enfin le petit prince. 'On est un peu seul dans le désert.’
'On est seul aussi chez les hommes’, dit le serpent.

“Where are the people?” resumed the little prince at last. “It’s a little lonely in the desert…" "It is lonely when you’re among people, too,” said the snake.

🌟 21. Vous êtes belles, mais vous êtes vides…. On ne peut pas mourir pour vous.

You’re beautiful, but you’re empty…. No one could die for you.

🌟 22. Les hommes ont oublié cette vérité, dit le renard. Mais tu ne dois pas l’oublier. Tu deviens responsable pour toujours de ce que tu as apprivoisé.

“Men have forgotten this truth,” said the fox. “But you must not forget it. You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed.”

🌟 23. Mais les yeux sont aveugles. Il faut chercher avec le cœur.

But the eyes are blind. One must look with the heart…

“I don’t like to be handed things.”

Can we talk about the implications of those words? Like, what happened to Tony that made him weary of taking something from someone else’s hands? Is it just a weird quirk, one of those things that people have but can’t explain? Or is it something more.

Like just imagine:

Young Tony Stark, so desperate for his fathers attention, would do anything he could to spend time with his father. So imagine young Tony, helping his father in the lab, but because Howard is Howard he doesn’t treat Tony like a kid, he just treats Tony as he would any other genius assistant.

“Here, hold this,” he says, as he holds out a soldering iron by the hot end. Howard had never given Tony any protective gear and Tony don’t want to irritate his father by pointing this out and risk getting kicked out of the lab, not able to help anymore. So he takes it. It burns like nothing he’s ever felt before, and he fights against the reflexive urge to drop it, to cry out and cradle his hand. He puts it down calmly and uses his shoulder to wipe away the tears before Howard can notice. Howard has already moved on.

Jarvis tisks over the burns as he bandages them later, pursing his lips, but he doesn’t say anything because he knows Howard would never listen and this is one of the few ways he’ll spend anytime with his son. And it’s not his place because, unfortunately, young Master Anthony is not his is child.

Tony’s older now. Fourteen. Away at MIT, away from his fathers disapproving stares, away from Maria’s despondent smiles as she lays in bed, unable to gather the energy to face the day, away from that look Jarvis gets on his face whenever Howard starts to talk about Captain Rogers again.

He’s at a party, surrounded by people, surrounded by girls - and some boys - beautiful people who give Tony attention, affection, something he’s never had before so he doesn’t know how to deal with it. He’s already had a few drinks and is a little tipsy, but he’s fine. A few drinks never hurt anybody. “Puts some hair on your chest,” he remembers his father saying when he was younger, eleven maybe twelve, pressing a glass of iced amber liquid into his hand.

A boy comes over and presses a drink into his hand. Stone, he thinks his name is, Tiberius Stone. He seemed nice, had been kind to Tony when he first arrived a couple months ago, younger than his peers and afraid of rejection. “Drink this,” Ty says, “it’ll make you feel better.” He takes it and drinks and the rest of the night is a blur, he doesn’t remember much after that, but he does remember waking up in a room he doesn’t recognize with no memory of how he got there.

It’s the little things that add up, he thinks, when suddenly one day he’s looking down at the file in his new assistants hand - Pepper, he thinks, but he knows that’s not her real name - and he can’t bring himself to take it. It’s harmless, a simple paper file and all he has to do it sign it. And he knows he can trust this girl, hired her himself after she barged into his office with - or technically without - the threat of pepper spray to his security. But the thought of lifting his hand makes his stomach turn, makes his body grow cold, and he can’t figure out why suddenly reaching out and taking a file from someone’s hand is now such a struggle.

“I don’t like to be handed things,” he says slowly, eyeing the file and trying to relax his body.

Pepper doesn’t seem to notice his struggle, simply putting the folder down on the desk by his hand, moving on to the next item on her list. She brushes it off as one of those weird billionaire eccentricities and doesn’t question it again.

Weird billionaire quirk or learned aversive behavior stemming from a subconscious fear of being harmed by those around him? I think about this all the time.

Open post to all Republicans:

You were all duped by political theatre and empty promises. When Trump does what he wants, you will have no idea because you never asked for him to explain anything. He just said, “it will be the best”, and you bought it.

I don’t know how to explain it, but his existence is just so shocking to me. He is like a chemical reaction to my system, something that looks pretty but heats up and burns something fierce. It is not something to inhale, but you’re going to anyways; he is that intense. He is the air that fills your lungs with sweetness until you can no longer breathe anything but him, and by then it is too late. You have already been poisoned. He is poison. Sweet, painful poison.
—  excerpt from a book i’ll never write

I will never understand why ppl find mccree sexy bc I just can’t take him seriously with his weird dom-y lines (“I saved ur life it belongs to me now”) like in what universe is mccree the one in charge of any relationship when he always sounds like he’s about to cry when he says “don’t sass me???” America explain???

So the question he asks is this
“have you ever fucked a girl?”

and the moment between him asking that and you answering was filled with
every single inappropriate thing ever said towards you
every single time someone asked about a threesome
every single joke at a bi girls expense and
you think about how no one ever asks if you’ve ever fallen in love with a girl
no one ever asks about how your heart leaps when she smiles at you
no one ever asks you to explain the feeling you get in your chest when you see her,
like the whole world is gold.

so he says this
“have you ever fucked a girl?”

you don’t say anything back.

my fav type of dirkjohn is dirkjohn filled with like… absolutely juvenile, petty, pigtail pulling on the playground levels of bullshit an nonsense

dirk breaks into johns house just to eat his leftovers and to give 5 star ratings to softcore gay porn on john’s netflix account and screw up his recommendation algorithm

john uses his windy powers to get into dirk’s house undetected, and every day for three weeks systematically moves his furniture one quarter of an inch to the left

dirk takes to re-arranging all of the clothes in john’s dresser so he can never find the shirt he’s looking for

john leaves water balloons in dirk’s mailbox which don’t actually accomplish anything but rolling onto the pavement and bouncing away gently and dirk has to go pick them up like a dumbass because its technically littering

dirk leaves a single slice of brooklyn style pizza tucked snugly underneath john’s windshield wiper like a leaflet 

neither of them can explain why they’re doing this or what it accomplishes when prompted, and everyone around them is disgusted at their weirdass 6th grade level black-red flirting

Saeyoung + children angst

A few quick little angst dabbles for Saeyoung as a continuation of my ‘MC dies at childbirth’-hc’s. Formatting is diffrent because I’m on mobile - Michelle

~~~

- He never blamed them for anything
- Does anything for his prince and princess
- But can’t help but feeling sad for your daughter to look so much like you
- Doesn’t spend as much time with her as he does with his boy
- One day, when the twins are 7 years old, he asks if she could help him wash his baby car
- She says that he really doesn’t want her help
- Confused Saeyoung
- Then she says: “It’s okay, I know you hate me, daddy”
- His heart breaks and he asks why she thinks that
- And then she explains that he never really looks at her, gets sad when he does just like when he sees your picture, that he barely talks to her, does all kinds of cool and fun stuff with her little brother
- But most of all because there was this one time when she was looking at pictures of you in a photo album and started yelling at her
- Saying that she could just 'look in the mirror and see the person he loved so much, couldn’t live without and was taking away from him’
- He kicked himself for saying that
- In a way he treated her the same way his mother treated Saeran and it made him sick
- His little girl looked so heart broken in front of him
- They both started to cry
- He promised her to be the best daddy for her that he can be

You’re My Superhero

Title: You’re My Superhero

Paring: Sam x Reader

Word Count: 989

Warning: I teared up writing this one….so it’s hella fluffy with LOTS of fuzzy feels

Request by @secretlittledelights said: Idk if you take requests but I would love a Sam story where he is explaining to his son AU about showing his mama her body is beautiful When she’s feeling insecure about her body and the son making her breakfast in bed cuz Sam knows she can’t turn down anything from ether son?

A/N: I’m not a mom, I’ve never had a child, so this is written based on what I have seen in my personal life and in my OB rotation in nursing school, so I hope this is accurate and I hope you all like it. Enjoy!!!


 

Celebrities fucking suck. They pop out a kid, or two, or four, and within months they are fit as all hell. Do they not keep the kids after they have them?! Between the baby, a household, work, your man child of a husband that bless his heart is sometimes a bigger trouble than a help, how the hell do they do it?!

Shutting the magazine, you got off the couch to start on the ever endless to-do list for the day, hoping to get some before the baby woke back up.


“Hey beautiful,” Sam wrapped his arms around your waist as he came in. Stiffening up and pulling away you shrugged him off.

“Can you just not today? Sorry. I just, I don’t want to be touched right now.” Giving Sam a weak smile you headed upstairs to put away the laundry as your little man came running through wearing one of your shirts he’d swiped earlier.

“Mommy mommy mommy!!! Look! Your shirt, it’s a dress on me!!”

Normally you would have laughed, said he was adorable, something along those lines but all you could focus on was how big the shirt was. Am I seriously that big? God I could practically fill that top out now and that’s a maternity shirt.

Stranger Things headcannon where Eleven gets her period for the first time

- while Eleven was in Hawkins Lab, no one bothered to tell her that one day she’d get her period so when she finally gets it she thinks she might be dying

- Eleven is living with Joyce and Will and Jonathan, so her and Mike can go to the Snow Ball without it seeming like they’re siblings (and also because Joyce can’t let her adopted daughter stay anywhere else)

- she loves Joyce but goes to Mike with her problems because he was the first one who promised to always protect her and no one can replace Mike

- of course, she doesn’t understand that Mike is a 12/13 year old boy and “periods are GROSS!”

- but, of course, Mike would never say anything to make Eleven feel hurt or scared or bad about herself, so he does his best when she comes to him

- after El explains the issue, Mike frantically searches through Nancy’s things and uses the very limited knowledge he has on periods to try to find something to help

- finally, he can’t figure out what to do so he begs Nancy for help

- Nancy, of course, comes to the rescue and gives Mike some pads to give to Eleven, who has no clue what to do with them (and neither does Mike)

- Mike panics when El almost pulls another “it’s totally okay to change in front of people” moment and just sends her to Nancy before he gets too freaked out

- Nancy, being the pure soul that she is, explains everything to El and answers all of her seemingly obvious questions (“what’s the thing in between my legs?” “is the stuff coming out of it the same stuff that comes out of my nose?” “does this only happen once or will it happen again?”) without judgement or laughter

- when El gets cramps for the first time, Mike rushes to his sister (again) and begs her for advice on how to help

- per Nancy’s advice, Mike takes his bicycle and rushes to the local grocery store and spends all of his allowance on chocolate, cookies, and of course, eggos (when he makes them for El, he puts on extra syrup and whipped cream)

- when Dustin, Lucas, and Will ask him to play D&D, he tells them that his mom said no when in reality he’s just sitting with El and giving her cuddles with she feels sick and space when she doesn’t want to be touched

- even though “periods are gross!” Mike goes to Nancy and asks her to explain everything so he knows how to help Eleven in the best way possible

- Nancy tells Jonathan and Steve about how sweet her baby brother is being and they basically decide to treat her the same way when she’s on her period

- Eleven and Mike and Nancy all being fucking adorable i mean just imagine

5 ways to say “I love you”

Fluff drabbles with Hanamiya, Murasakibara, Imayoshi, Midorima, and Kuroko.(´ω`♡)Please smile, I give you all the hugs, my awesome readers! ♡♡

The weather was warm and sunny, you had a long break, and you ended up loitering at the school rooftop. Himuro was sipping on his orange juice, you were playing with Murasakibara’s hair, and Murasakibara himself was napping with his head on your lap.

“Did you know that Atsushi talks in his sleep?”

“Does he?” You frowned, trying to decide whether Himuro was joking or not. You looked at Murasakibara’s peaceful face. “I’ve never heard anything.”

“That’s because you have to talk to him first,” Himuro explained. “Watch.”

Himuro leaned down, bringing his face right above Murasakibara’s ear.

“Atsushi,” he whispered, “did you filch Liu’s mochi yesterday?”

For a moment, there was silence.

“Mnnnnyeah…”

Your jaw dropped and you stared at Himuro with wide eyes. Murasakibara didn’t open his eyes and he went back to his light snoring right after he muttered that confirmation. There was no doubt that he was asleep.

EXO Reaction #2

  EXO reaction to reader having naturally cold hands 


Yixing: On a second date, it’s natural to hold hands. So him being bold enough, he tried to hold your hand. TRIED. You smacked his hand away out of pure reflex. you weren’t trying to be rude but you’ve never told him that your hands are naturally cold. You were self conscious about that. While trying to explain your rude behavior with a heavy blush on your face. He suddenly held both your hands with a caring smile. He understands why now and that doesn’t change his feeling for you at all.

“You having cold hands doesn’t change my feelings for you, if anything it makes me like you more”

Originally posted by ceozhang

Jongin: He’s going to be concerned. He’s worried that you may be sick but you aren’t telling him. He’s just trying to look out for you and your health. Poor nini was confused and worried that he didn’t know what to do with this new information about you.

“Are you sure you aren’t sick?… … . .Maybe you don’t have good blood circulation…”

Originally posted by intokai

Sehun: People would expect that he would be bratty about it or annoyed but really he shows his concern but not to the extent like Jongin or Suho, He shows that he doesn’t really mind it. You trying to hide your hands with a blush on your cheeks sold it for him. You looked adorable trying to explain your behavior and having your hands cold is something he’s to adore about you.

“Aishh you look so cute doing that. It’s okay that your hands are like that, it’s actually unique but make sure you wear gloves when we go outside”

Originally posted by blondejongin

Baekhyun: He knew your hands were cold. You didn’t know he knew and he knows that you don’t know that he knew. So when you got overly excited and ended up holding his arm with your icy hands. He was a little startled with the sudden coldness but baekhyun being baekhyun he decided to overreact and tease you a little too much. He doesn’t mind your hands but he’s going to tease you about it.

“Yahh yahh what was that ice … . if you keep holding me like that I might get a frostbite”

Originally posted by baekhyuntella

Chanyeol: After holding your freezing hand he had a lot of questions like if you were cold, if you needed him to buy you gloves, if you needed ANOTHER jacket. After explaining yourself he understood you. By breaking the ice he decided to make a small joke out of it.

“So from now on should I carry around gloves just in case we hold hands?” *Ignore mr byun down below xD *

Originally posted by baekhyunee61

Minseok: He’s been meaning to ask you why you don’t like to have physical contact like holding hands, he was starting to think that you may not want to date him anymore. Well you being scared that he won’t like you anymore because instead of having warm hands, you had very cold hands. So after he asked you what’s wrong, you had to tell him the truth. After your explanation you expected him to not want to date you anymore. Instead he felt relieved that you actually do like him. So he grabbed your hands and held them to his cheeks.

“Cold hands or not that will never be a reason for me to change my mind about you, I like the way you are.”

Originally posted by secrethideoutme

Jongdae: He had it coming. The whole day he has been teasing you and tickling you. He didn’t know that on a hot day like today your hands usually stay cold. So while he was watching TV on the couch with his back facing you. You went up and surprised him from behind by squishing both his cheeks with your icy hands. He was shocked by the sudden coldness, he was also shocked that the coldness came from your hands. He didn’t really take it as serious thing, that your hands were cold. He did whine a lot though.

“I know I went too far with the tickling but do you have touch my warm delicate cheeks with your ice of a hands.”

Originally posted by dayafterdae

Suho: He is going to be really concerned for your well being. The first time he held your hand he took it as the weather outside was making you feel cold. But now that you both were inside and in a warm place and your hands are still freezing cold, he’s starting to get worried.

“Do you need to get checked by a doctor? Is it too cold in here or do you want to go somewhere warmer.”

Originally posted by dazzlingkai

Kyungsoo: Not long ago you mentioned that you have cold hands and it’s natural for you to have cold hands 24/7. So when he made the move to hold your hand, he was a little shocked at the sudden coldness.

“I knew they were going to be but I didn’t think they’d be that cold.”

He wishes for you
He loves that you’re so easy to talk to
He loves that you listen
You should see the way he looks at you when you’re talking
Almost as though he’s never heard anything quite so beautiful

He looks at you like you’re an angel
He’s amazed by your blissful elegance
He loves everything about you
He wants to be immersed in your beauty
And how could we know that??

Well you should see the way he looks at you when you’re talking…
His looks explain it all.

Legit Tip #171

“Writing Problematic Characters”

Characters don’t have to and shouldn’t be perfect. But when you’re writing a character with problematic behaviors, how do ensure that you’re not condoning that behavior? And how do you show that this is still a “good” person when this character is meant to be portrayed in a positive light, even if they have some characteristics that are less than perfect?

For example, say have two characters in a relationship - Adam and Dimitri - but Dimitri has a massive jealous streak when it comes to his younger boyfriend. At the start of their relationship, he tends to be a bit controlling. 

It’s explained by his backstory, and it’s never anything that makes him act abusively towards Adam. But it’s still not okay, and it’s still not okay, especially if it leads him to act possessive. So, how do you deal with this as a writer? Well, you have a few options. 

1. Show growth in your character. Letting your character grow and change - to see the consequences of his actions and to begin to understand that his behavior is problematic is an important aspect of ensuring that your audience understands that you as the writer aren’t condoning his actions. 

2. Don’t let others condone his actions. Let the people in his life be your narratorial mouthpieces. Have them speak up and say what you, the author, want to say about their actions. 

3. Ensure that their actions have consequences. I’m not saying that you should moralize. Unfortunately, there’s not always a corresponding negative consequence for every negative action. But do be aware that repeated problematic behaviors can and will build up and lead to consequences for characters over time. (In most cases). 

4. Question whether your character is aware their behavior is problematic. Sometimes people simply aren’t aware that what they’re doing is wrong. Ask yourself whether or not your character is aware of what they’re doing is problematic and whether they’d’ make a change if they were aware. Then alter their behavior accordingly as they become aware of these facts in-story (and if they do). 

Whether it’s something ‘little’ like jealousy or something far more problematic like racism or sexism, writing these attitudes and behaviors in characters can help to build a more realistic story universe. It can be difficult to do, especially when you want to write a problematic character but also make them a sympathetic character, but it is possible. Just remember to allow them to grow and to give them the opportunity to learn.

Air.

Kim Taehyung paced the university corridors like a ghost. The boy followed a path of his own, one that he had no knowledge of, never holding himself to anything (or anyone) for longer than necessary, never seeming to pay attention to the world around him. He was free, independent of the existence of others, almost as if his mind was the center of a universe of his own, a wonderful cosmos that few had the honor of diving into. 

At the beginning of the school year, you could count on your fingers the times you saw him, all of them marking your memory in a way that you couldn’t define. It was almost as if his effect was dormant within you, and every time you took a glimpse of his brown hair or his friendly eyes, the interest once again bubbled inside you. If asked, you wouldn’t know what it was about your colleague that intrigued you so much. When he was present, your eyes seemed to have a life of their own, always finding a way to give him some discreet looks. Taehyung was a walking mystery, and you couldn’t help but follow.

sorry i’m so bitter & petty tonight guys. have some soft headcanons to make up for it:

-adam adopts a dog after he graduates from college. ronan is like,, “i could dream u the perfect dog… a dog whose shit u never had to pick up.” adam can’t really explain how much he wants to rescue something and choose it for himself, but ronan Gets It after adam insists for long enough. the dog has some dorky name like “dandelion” and ronan tries really hard to rename it but it will only answer to dandelion!!!!!

-gansey is really stubborn about his clothing choices bc his khaki shorts and polos are a Routine and at this point anything else is Sensory Hell ™. henry, on the other hand, is only really attached to his hair style. so blue starts making clothes for him and figures out that he will literally wear anything she makes him. she starts making him intentionally ugly garments and he doesn’t catch on for months bc he’s fucking besotted. (gansey doesn’t help bc he honestly thinks his partners look adorable in everything)

-it’s common fanon that ronan starts coming around to 300 fox way for weekly dinners while everyone’s away BUT when blue comes back and is living at home for a while she can’t help but be jealous???? ronan and her moms know things about each other that she doesn’t???? they have INSIDE JOKES. the first time blue realizes this, she just looks between ronan and her mom and sputters. they team up on her and crack jokes like um fucking et tu brute????

“If you claim you care about me, why don’t you show it?” she spoke slow, you could hear her voice shake nervously.

“I can’t explain.” he was sorry.

“You never could.”

“How am I supposed to tell you that I get shy when it comes to you, whenever I’m around you I get so tense I can barely move and whenever you speak my heart stops. Don’t even get me started on your smile, your smile is the most beautiful thing I’ve seen by far, when you smile it feels like I’m complete and I can’t do anything but stare. Yes, I do care about you. Sometimes I care so much, that I forget to show you.”

She glared at him in shock.
