Jimin is friends with Shinee’s Taemin, Exo’s Kai and Chanyeol, Wanna One Sungwoon. Jungkook is friend with Got7’s Bambam and Yugyeom, NCT’s Jaehyun, Seventeen Mingyu. Taehyung is friends with Shinee’s Minho, ZE: A Park Hyun Shik, BTOB’s Sungjae, EXO’s Suho and Baekhyun, GOT7’s Mark, VIXX’s Hongbin. Jin is friends with B1A4’s Sandeul and VIXX’s Ken. Namjoon is very close to Got7’s Jackson too. Jhope is friends with BAP’s Zelo, Bigstar’s Sunghak, and Ha Sungwoon from Hotshot and also Got7’s JB. Suga is friends with Super Junior’s Heechul. And there are MORE I didn’t mention.
BTS are literally close with all the big male groups rn. They all love and support each other. Most groups meet up during music shows and award shows and get close. V said “When Suho was hosting a music show, we’d say hello a lot, and our promotions often overlapped. If you meet someone a lot for a show, it seems like you just get close somehow. You smile and support each other.” Most of them keep in touch despite their busy schedules and meet up as soon as they can. Jimin, Kai and Taemin even designed their squad logo and Jackets.
So I don’t get it when fans attack BTS! My ask is full now of ARMYs being sad because of fanwars, and this happens more EVERY YEAR around this time *cough* award shows *cough*. How would you feel if the people who like you are also the ones hating on your dear friends? Seriously, Kpop is music too. It’s meant to bring people together not start WWIII.
Yes, there is competition to win awards and so on but competition is in school, work, and sports … Does it mean you will curse at your classmates if they got better grades?
Why not instead turn it into a motivation to do better next time while being good sports and congratulate the winner.I mean we should all be like this.
I know how people online hide behind anonymity and can become bravely rude. I know how anger makes us say things we should have never said. but all fandoms please take note including ARMY: Even if your words get forgotten with time that stain on the fandom’s name and image just gets more apparent and ugly. At the end of the day, are you helping your group or ruining them?
Imagine all the great stages and collaborations we could have gotten and the opportunities we could have opened to our boys if we stood together.
I always heard "It’s impossible for fandoms to get along”. Did anyone even try? I will not ask for everyone to magically act kinder and support each other just like our idols do. Nor become all friends. Just ONE thing: Let’s ALL be respectful. If you feel stressed go listen to your group’s music not start arguments. I am sure it can be soothing. If after all this you still want to carry the hate I will not fight you. There is “Nothing more left to say, don’t even apologize. No need to see each other ever again, this is my last goodbye”
So if Zen is suppose to be the love for mc why is seven canon end? O.o
VERY GOOD QUESTION. I can’t believe I’ve never explicitly addressed this.
Also before you guys start reading this, I’d just like to say that this is probably the most I’ve thought and worked for a post, so it would be so nice if you guys could voice out your own opinions and tell me your take on this.
Firstly, I’d like to debunk something that to this day, a lot of people still believe. This is regarding the 707 Reset Theory.
Most people believe that Seven is actually the true ending based on the main game because out of all of the RFA members, he breaks the fourth wall the most. This leads us to believe that he is aware that it is a game. From here, the theory branches out to say that Seven actually loves you in every route and has to suffer through watching you fall in love with all of these other characters before you finally get to him.
The theory caused the creation of many beautiful fanart and excellent mini-fics and headcanons about our darling 707, and because of this, we all slowly stopped seeing it as just a theory. After all, it is very convincing. Even I believed it for a long time.
Some people raised the theory that the other characters also loved MC in every route, another convincing one being that Jumin is also aware of the reset, but ultimately the 707 Reset Theory remained the most popular because his route is the suggested last route, and his good ending allowed us to access the Secret Endings. But at the end of the day, just like all the other theories regarding MysMe, this is not canon. Cheritz has never confirmed it.
This means that the 707 Reset Theory is just a popular theory.
Moving on to the DLCs. The Christmas DLC, in my opinion, was pretty light-hearted. There isn’t anything particularly eye-catching that could bring rise to a theory.
Then, we get the Valentine’s Day DLC. They’re After Endings of the main routes. Nothing much can be said about this DLC either, but some people did start to get suspicious about Seven’s character in his After Ending. Irrelevant to the points I’m currently trying to make, so we’ll save that for another post.
Finally, we have the April Fools DLC, which totally caught us off guard because we thought it would be another light-hearted DLC. Instead, we’re given the Epiphany ending, where it is confirmed that among all the RFA members, only Zen is real, and he is trapped in another dimension where he can never get to you. He then confesses his love for you. Because this is a DLC where you don’t get to choose you’re own route, it becomes canon that no matter what, Zen is in love with you.
This one ups the 707 Reset Theory because 1) Zen does the ultimate fourth wall break and 2) he outrightly confesses his love for you through the screen. No hinting, no beating around the bush, just straight up “I love you”. And we have to take note that he doesn’t say this to the MC. He says this to you.
He genuinely loves YOU, in the form of MC or the player.
I’ve tried to come up with my own conclusions based on this fact, and here’s what I have.
It’s very obvious that the MC in each route has a different personality. For example, the MC in Zen’s route is slightly different from the MC in Jaehee’s route. Each RFA member falls for an MC with a particular personality. However, by addressing YOU, Zen is ultimately saying that he loves you as the player, and not as a character in the game.
MC is a bunch of different people in different routes. She loves different people in different routes. She’s just a puppet. Zen even says in the Epiphany ending that he knows all your answers are pre-determined. It’s clear he didn’t fall for the character in the game. He fell for the girl playing the game.
So you know what? Maybe Seven is the true end for MC, a game character. But you, the player, you’re the true end for Zen. Does this make sense?
This isn’t the end of what I’m trying to say. Let me continue with the April Fools DLC.
This DLC also allowed Cheritz fans, those who’ve played Nameless, Dandelion, and Mystic Messenger, to make connections between these three games. From here, we realise that the 707 Reset Theory isn’t completely wrong, but it isn’t completely right either.
Yes, Seven is aware that it is a game. That is why he breaks the fourth wall. But it’s not necessarily because he’s the canon end. It’s because he is a wizard. He represents the game maker. We are given evidence of this multiple times in chatrooms when he talks about being a wizard. This wouldn’t make sense if you don’t know the background of the other Cheritz games. It all links up.
Taking elements from the 707 Reset Theory and the newest Zen theory, there is a huge, HUGE chance that Zen is the canon end. Again, this is not confirmed by Cheritz, so it remains a theory just like the 707 Reset Theory, but as of now, it is the best-supported theory and quite frankly, it’s the one I believe.
Very long-winded because I wanted to cover a lot of things in this answer, but to summarise, Seven isn’t the canon end. None of them are the confirmed canon end. However, the most possible canon end currently is Zen. This could change in the future if Cheritz decides to release more MysMe DLCs, though I doubt they will any time soon (not huge DLCs at least) because they’re currently working on The Lynn Project.
Speaking of which, this is also something I think we should all take note of. The Lynn Project, which is the current game Cheritz is working on, was actually started way earlier, I think in 2015. However, Cheritz put it on hold because they decided to create and finish Mystic Messenger first. There’s got to be a reason for this. I’m sure The Lynn Project will answer even more of our questions. After all, all of Cheritz’s games link up, which I really applaud them for. What amazing storytelling.
So yeah, there you have it. Nothing is set in stone. Unless explicitly said by Cheritz or stated in the game, all the theories we have so far are just speculation and we’re all just trying to contribute more and more evidence to the theories we support to make sense of the game.
I’ve read a lot of Mystic Messenger theories, and I’d have to say that the best one I’ve encountered is this theory, which links all three games together and supports the “Zen loves you in every route” theory. It explains a lot and is very well-evidenced.
I hope I’ve answered your question sufficiently. I kind of went all over the place but it’s the only way I can really explain this :)
Dear Connor Murphy (Connor Murphy x reader imagine)
A/N: Hello! Thank you all for reading and for the amazing support! I was going to start on requests, but this idea jumped into my head and wouldn’t leave me alone. This is darker than my first two so let me know what you think! I will admit that I cried a little writing this, so be warned.
Requested: nope Words: 1367 Warnings: One or two swear words. Suicide! If this subject is triggering for you please skip this! I’ll have some fluff tomorrow!
Dear Connor Murphy,
I don’t want to be writing this to you. I never wanted to write this, but you’ve given me no choice. When we met I thought I knew who I was, and then you arrived like a freaking tornado and changed everything. We had all just come back from winter break, and we’d never really talked, but we’d been in the same math class since freshman year. We only started talking because I loved highlighting notes in class and the teacher took away my highlighters. You commented to me how that was bullshit and let me borrow a few of your own. It’s funny how something so simple could change our lives. We started talking after that, mostly on preferred methods of organizing our school notes. You hated a messy binder, and we loved talking about how we should run a class on how to take perfect notes. Somehow we found stupid jokes about highlighters and binders hilarious, and when it was just us we lived in our own world. The outside world found our friendship weird. The freak and the girl next door, sounds cliché right? Not for us, and if it was we didn’t give a shit. With you I didn’t have to hide how messed up life could be, and with me, you could just be a boy, not the crazy kid at school. When we had our anti-Valentine’s Day movie marathon and you kissed me the pieces seemed to fall into place.
Nobody was surprised when we started holding hands and I showed up to school in your hoodies. Even though nobody was surprised there were still glares, snide remarks, and mean comments. Ignoring them was hard, but together we managed because we were a team. Our nights were spent entangled in each other’s arms laughing and sharing secrets while splattering kisses upon each other. Saying it was perfect would be a lie, nothing is perfect, but we were damn close. No matter what was happening we were constants for each other. After fights with your parents you climbed into my window, and after fights with mine I would call you and you would rush over to hold me. Our relationships with other people could be falling apart, but at least we still had each other, even when we fought. You would get mad when you were insecure, and I would get upset when I felt alone. Sometimes you would scream, or sometimes you would go silent. I would hold you no matter the emotion and you did the same for me. While in holding each other calm settled over us and all the big emotions we felt seemed distant. The only thing we could feel was security.
Before we knew it summer had rolled around and we spent each and every day together. We knew senior year would be hard so we treasured every moment together. I would wake up to you and fall asleep with my head on your chest, legs overlapping, and bare bodies together. Our most private moments switched between those where we divulged hidden pain and ones where we held our naked bodies close. You told me about the pain you felt, how lonely you would get, how sometimes everything seemed useless. I never shied away from talking about it, and you even said it was getting better, that the thoughts weren’t there as often and life had more meaning. You had never lied to me before that.
When you didn’t show up the first day of senior year a part of me knew. I decided to go to your house after school, denying what I knew deep down. I pulled up to your house and saw ambulances and your parents standing on the porch with blank faces. I don’t even remember getting out of the car, but I remember the feeling of shattering inside me. Your mom and I sat on the couch together, for who knows how long while police asked her questions and I held her hand. Your dad just stared out the window, while your sister stared into space while at the dining room table. I’m supposed to stand in front of people and tell stories about you, but all I can do is feel anger.
You left me. Maybe that sounds selfish, but I get to be since you killed yourself. It doesn’t even feel real to acknowledge that. I keep expecting you to show up in my bedroom and tell me this was just one mean prank, and I would yell, but you would hold me and everything would be okay. Instead, I hold your hoodies as I try to fall asleep, but I can’t sleep. I just rethink everything I did, and everything I didn’t do. Now I’m just always tired because when I close my eyes I see you and everything that could have been and would have been, and that hurts too much. With my eyes closed I catch glimpses of the sideways smile you would give me when we were driving, I catch glimpses of your favorite jeans that have a hole in the cuffs. I catch glimpses of you in my bed. I catch glimpses of what would have been our first apartment, the tux you would’ve worn to prom. I see you and me carrying groceries and fighting over wedding invitations and baby names. But then I see you dying alone, and your eyes lifeless. I see you being announced dead in your room which you won’t ever walk in again, so I get to be angry. I get to be angry because you left me and took our future away with it. We were going to be that annoying couple that everybody looks up to. We were going to move Oregon after school, eventually buy a house, and have kids that would have your eyes and laugh. It all would have been so beautiful.
I’m angry so I don’t have to be sad because if I were sad I wouldn’t ever stop. The sad keeps creeping in though. I want more time with you. I want more time to memorize the way you wrap your arms around me and the way you kissed me. I want more time to remember the exact sound of your heart beating and the way you said my name. I’m trying to hold onto how you smelled and the way you laughed. I wish I could’ve frozen every moment with you so I could have memorized every detail. I want to go back and count the colors in your eyes and the freckles on your back. It all went by so fast, I wish I could have slowed everything down and relived every moment with you and savor every breath you took. I’m so angry and sad and lonely all at once with you gone. Maybe it was naïve to think that I could love you back to happiness, but I tried; I tried so hard. Now you’re gone and I can’t wish you back, no matter how much I try. I can’t give you my heartbeat so you can live, no matter how much I want and I can’t join you no matter how much I want to. All I can do is try to live, but when you left I died with you. So I’m angry Connor, and I’m sad, but I’ll try to stay upright. I promise you that I won’t move on even if that’s what you want. You were my future; you still are my future even if you’re gone. Before I knew you my future seemed average, go to school, find a man who treats me okay and turn into the person I never wanted to be. Now I refuse to be that, to turn into that. I’ll try my hardest to live a life that I want, one where I break the expectations ahead of me, just like you taught me. So even though you won’t walk next to me, you’ll live in me. Every breath I take and step I make will be because of you, and together our future will be as bright as your smile.
At our most recent meet up I had the pleasure of speaking with Tim M who is a local scale modeler that does a bit of everything. He brought his 1/24 scale custom car that he did. The weathering on this thing is simply amazing. I was in pure awe when looking at this and just had so many questions about it.
We had a good hour or so long conversation talking about techniques that are used for car and military scale modeling to even the IPMS competition scene and some of the contests he has been too. Learning so much about weathering and the hobby overall was a pure joy. Most of my current builds have been weathered and while I want to do some nice clean builds, builds like this get me really excited to see and are such an inspiration to start building more.
We should really look outside the “genre” of Gunpla and take some notes from some of the sci-fi, horror, car and military modelers. There are so many techniques that we can apply to the kits that we make that could really expand our skills and imagination. I hope you all enjoy these images of this insane build and you keep trying new stuff with your builds!
Man! Jake and Amy are what dreams are made of! Is such cute, funny, healthy couple who support each other and have major respect for each other and is so well developed winch you don’t see much in television these days! It really inspires me to accept nothing but healthy relationships in my life. Thank you Brooklyn Nine-Nine for showing that you can make a great couple without all the petty drama and for giving us such an amazing lead character like Jake Peralta who is funny, pure, respectfull and so down to earth, the only white male on tv we all agree on. Other shows should take note
Synchronicity: 10 Signs The Universe Is Speaking To You
What is synchronicity and why does it have such an impact on our lives? Well, whether you believe in it or not, synchronicity is a spiritual phenomena, which is presented by experiencing frequent coincidences, names, phrases, numbers or even seeing the same animal regularly (omens). Coincidence, on the other hand , does definitely exist just like synchronicity, but ther’s a slight difference. Coincidences only happen once and one time only, whereas synchronicity is the same coincidence that keeps getting repeated. Now this is when a simple coincidence that happens to us becomes a sign from the higher realms and the universe. This is when we should take note of it and listen to our intuition, rather than ignoring it. The first person to take notice of synchronicity, was Swiss psychiatrist and psychologist Carl Jung, who was talking to a client about a dream they had about a golden sacrab beetle, and before they knew it, they saw one in the window of Carl’s psychotherapy cabinet which was rather majestic considering that species of beetle wasn’t native to Switzerland.
Most people in everyday society believe that synchronicity is utterly meaningless and should be taken as a pinch of salt. However, this is the attitude that feeds mediocrity and unsatisfaction within our lives. By acting this way, we are subconsciously blocking ourselves from experiencing serendipity, joy and blessings that life brings into our path. Ever since we were children, society and our parents have continuously made us believe that the world is dangerous, scary and full of negativity and tragedy. Society doesn’t want you to have a curious mind because society thinks these people have the power to change world instead of conforming like everyone else. So start embracing your inner child and explore the world like you’ve never stepped on Earth before. You’ll begin to see your life as more blissful, wondrous and free, so adopt this attitude and end the cycle of negativity.
1. You keep noticing or hearing their name in random places
Have you ever experienced this? When you consistently hear or see a particular name everywhere on your travels it means that this person male or female, is soon to enter your life in 3D some time in the near future, who will awaken you spiritually and make drastic changes in your life for the better. It can also have romantic connotations as well, which means that they will be manifested as your ultimate lover that you’ve always dreamed of. This is very common with people who are on the twin flame journey, particularly during the seperation stage. The universe gives you these divine messages because it wants you to know that you are still loved by your beloved twin, even though in reality it doesn’t seem like it at all. It’s like the universe is telling you to never give up hope and listen to your higher self.
2. You see angel numbers and sequences on a regular basis
You see numbers like 1111, 777, 888, 111 and many other sequences on a regular basis whether that is on a clock, number plates or telephone numbers. Sometimes you can wake up at the same time every morning or night as well, which often causes many people to freak out. The synchronicity of 1111 is very common within the spiritual community, as it generally means someone special is coming into your life such as a twin flame. However, it can also mean that you are going through a spiritual awakening as well. I have experienced the 1111 phenomena occasionally, but it is not as common for me. My angel number has been 111 for over a year and it continues to be even now. I have also seen 222 and 333 randomly sometimes. These numbers can also represent as a deceased loved one that is trying to communicate with you. See these numbers as a message from a deceased relative that is telling you to keep following your spiritual path and have faith in it.
3. You think of someone and then out of the blue you accidently bump into them
When this happens most people take this as a pure coincidence or chance. This is right, especially when it only happens once and never to occur again. However, when you consistently think of someone and see them randomly on your travels, take note. Do not get this synchronicity confused with stalking, as this can be mistaken very easily. If you keep bumping into someone serendipitously this means that this particular person will have a powerful impact in your life in someway. They can be people you knew in the past or a random stranger you just met yesterday.
4. Hearing a song on the radio that reminds you of someone or scenario that had a significant impact in your life
Have you ever listened to the radio and then a random song plays with lyrics that coincidentally matches up with how you feel about someone or a scenario? I have experienced this several times in my life. This usually happens between soulmates and twin flames during the separation phase of the divine partnership. It is another form of telepathy or psychic communication soulmates and twin flames can experience when they’re not talking to each other in the physical world. Music is created and lead by the emotions and the spirit, so this is why many twin flames and soulmates have experienced this synchronicity while they’re on their spiritual journey to reunite with each other again.
5. Randomly thinking about someone and they call you or send you a message a split second after
This phenomenon is very common with soulmates, but more so with twin flames. This phenomenon is called telepathy, which means mental communication between two people (whether they are near each other or faraway). Sometimes twin flame or soulmate couples can have telepathic communication - even when they’re on the other side of the world from each other. I have experienced this myself, and I have to confess that I’ve often scratched my head out of pure confusion because the phenomena is just absolutely bizarre. It’s so bizzare that no one would believe you if you told them about it or they would ask for evidence to prove that it exists. Bearing in mind that soulmates and twin flames don’t necessarily have to be a potential romantic partner, but they can also be a relative, your child, sibling, a best friend or parent. However, most of the time twin flames (more so than soulmates) are romantic partnerships.
6. You come across something that fixes a problem that has been worrying you for some time
Have you ever gone into a store or read an article online and then out of the corner of you eye, you suddenly see something that has the answer to a problem that you’ve been desperately wanting to fix? These are epiphanies or miracles from the universe showing you that you can finally break down the blocks that have cause you pain, suffering and anguish. When you see this, the universe is telling you that there is hope and you can escape from what has been holding you back.
7. You meet a stranger that awakens you about a particular aspect in your current life
Throughout our daily lives we meet many people who come in and come out without us consciously thinking about it, but then there’s some people that entered our life in some way that stay in our memory for many days, months, years, decades or even for a lifetime. These people may have been a stranger that helped you or saved your life or that special someone who took your breath away at the first glance of them. These people are usually lightworkers, twin flames, soulmates or your guardian angel that has incarnated on Earth. When you encounter someone like this, you feel an instant connection to them which feels sacred and cosmic. These people are your healers, protectors, divine lovers, soul friends and spirit guides. This why you’ll always remember them for many years.
8. You consistently see meaningful or sacred symbols
These symbols can be anything that has significant meanings and interpretations or have a religious connection to them. Symbols such as the holy trinity or infinity (lemniscate) are perfect examples of this. If you are on the twin flame journey, whether that is meeting your twin for the first time in 3D or you are currently going through separation you may see synchronicity involving the infinity symbol. When this happens the universe is basically telling you that their love for you is eternal and unbreakable and you should never give up hope even when you feel lost, helpless and stuck. On my twin flame journey, I have experienced synchronicity, especially with the infinity symbol so much so that I decided to buy an infinity necklace because it’s meaning meant so much to me.
9. You casually find yourself watching a movie that accurately mirrors the story of your life and what you’re going through (or have gone through)
This is a rarer type of synchronicity, as there are not many movies that have been made, which are nearly accurate to your own life story. If you have experienced this before, consider yourself lucky because it’s very, very rare. I believe that this is the most meaningful and poignant kind of synchronicity that I have listed in this post.
10. Reoccurring prophetic dreams about an event or person that will soon be entering your life
This synchronicity is very common when you begin to start waking up spiritually and develop psychic abilities. When you have very profound dreams that are repeated regularly with the same dream, this is known as clairvoyance or psychic vision. You’ll begin to have these at the very beginning of your spiritual awakening and journey. By having these dreams, you are now becoming self-aware of your divine gifts and talents that you can share with the world, rather than ignoring them and pushing them away.
“My New Years Resolution is to be a little kinder to myself in my own brain because you know what, it’s hard to be nice to people in the real world when there’s some mean guy running around in your head so I invite you to be kinder to yourself – and 2017 – along with me.” [x]
Niall never does what is expected. He strives to be different. He’s an innovator. He doesn’t want to sound like everyone else. Sometimes that will make a person less popular. Sometimes it changes the world. At least he’s taking chances and not following the crowd. Radio needs diversity. I’m happy I’m a fan of someone that’s not afraid to try something new. We should all take notes.
I really loved writing this and I hope you like it!
He would make so many snacks for you both
Probably uses his flames for the popcorn
He makes you build a blanket fort with him before you watch any films
There’s a cardboard sign on the outside that says ‘No Yukio Allowed’
He can’t get into the room anyway because of all the blankets
So many pillows scattered around everywhere
Just to make sure that you’re comfortable enough
687656543 pictures of the fort because he’s proud
Horror Movie - Despite the fact that this adorable bean is the son of Satan and he has witnessed many things, Rin would be absolutely terrified whilst watching scary films. He’d occasionally nuzzle into your neck when he suspects something bad is going to happen. ‘I’m not scared Y/N but could come closer to me?’ Though at the end of the movie he’d say that he only did that because he was worried that you were scared.
Chick Flick- Whenever he’s alone he secretly watches them anyway but he doesn’t tell you that and pretends he doesn’t know anything about the movie you put on. His favorite is ‘How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days’. He’d laugh all the way through the movie and would shyly ask you questions like ‘do you wish we met like that?’ or ‘should I take notes?’.
Disney Movie - He hasn’t watched many of these before and he doesn’t really enjoy them but if you wanted to watch it he would. He’d awkwardly compare you to the princesses in the films and would tell you how he’s definitely the best prince.
Marvel Movie - He would be really happy to watch any Marvel film with you. His favorite is ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ because of how funny he thinks it is. He accidentally breaks the fort during one of the fighting scenes because he was really hyped up because of it.
Sad Movie - Make sure you prepare at least 100 boxes of tissues because he’s definitely going to cry way more than you will. He would cuddle up real close to you and hold onto you real tight whenever he feels like hes going to cry adorable little sniffles.

Request: peter and the reader are dating but peter says they should go on a break. reader is upset and thinks they’re officially broken up, so to move on she goes on a date with someone who turns out to be a ghoul, and he attacks her. peter or the avengers saves the reader and kill the ghoul. reader and peter make up at the hospital.
Warnings: some violence & mild gore
Tokyo Ghoul AU!
The day Peter and you
started dating had been one of the happiest days of your life. And as
you argued with him now, you wished you could go back to that day.
You waited an hour
before he finally showed up for your date, sporting a black eye. When
you asked him about it, he brushed it off. He remained distant
throughout the date, giving you curt replies. It was if his mind was
elsewhere. Finally, you had had enough and decided to confront him as he
walked you home. Immediately, he got defensive. You were worried about
him, but he didn’t seem to understand that.
“Why can’t you drop it, Y/N? I told you, I’m fine!” he shouted angrily.
You were taken back by
his tone and paused momentarily before saying, “Peter, you have a black
eye! And you don’t want to tell me what happened. Why are you acting as
if I don’t know you fight crime on a regular basis?” You crossed your
arms. “Hell, even back when I didn’t know, at least you came up with
He looked away from you, settling his gaze on the busy road. “I don’t have to tell you everything.”
You took a few steps towards him, only for him to take a step back. Hurt, you quietly asked, “Why are you being like this?”
He rolled his eyes. “Like what?”
The hurt you felt was
replaced by anger at his sudden attitude towards you. “You hardly spoke
throughout our date, you showed up late, and when I asked what happened
you just snapped at me!”
Peter faced you. “You’re always nagging me! I’m tired of it!”
“Wow, Peter. I’m sorry me caring about you has made me a nag!” you shouted.
He didn’t reply.
You turned away from him. “I’m going home.”
“Y/N, wait,” he called out.
You turned, expecting him to finally explain what was wrong, or to at least to leave things on a good note.
“We should take a break,” he said and looked away again. “Just for a little while.”
Tears welled up in your
eyes and you bit your lower lip as you tried to keep your composure. You
nodded and took off towards your apartment.
So these two requests were similar and I just decided to put the two together! Thank you for sending in your requests and I hope you enjoy this! The ending is a little bit so-so but the process of writing this had been fun! (Though I do have to tell you, I got distracted a lot of times by watching Kitchen Nightmares).
It is Saturday night and you are currently working away on the
documents that have kept you from going back to your apartment early. Not that
you quite minded: things between your boyfriend and you have started to become
really dull and he also just does not quite understand the commitment you have
to your job. It made going back to your space unbearable. Sometimes he ever accuses
you of having an affair with Bruce! As if he would go for someone like you.
Almost every single day, you have to reassure him that he is the
only one that you love and that he is the one you are in a relationship with
but it was starting to get very tiring of having to repeat the same thing over
and over again every single day. Even though you would really love to be in
your bed more than anything right now, the thought of having to see your
boyfriend and sit through his accusations is really not appealing.
You let out a sigh when you finished proofreading the third out
of ten documents. The meetings had ran late causing more papers to pile up on
your desk. Some of your fellow colleagues have already called the quits and
went home but you knew you can at least manage a few more before you would not
even be able to make any sense out of the documents anymore.
You are halfway through the fourth document when a knock
resounds throughout your office and you are startled out of your reverie. You
stare wide eyes at the door, tensing slightly but the moment the door opens,
you visibly relax.
Bruce looks at you with that almost smile of his and you let out
a sigh, willing your heart to stop racing. Just because Wayne Enterprise has
one of the top notch’s security, it does not mean that no one might try to
break in to the building. As you recall, there had been several attempts a few
times. You are horrible at fighting despite taking self-defense classes.
“You scared me, Bruce.” You place your pen down on the table and
gently massage your wrist. You definitely did not know how tired you had been until
you placed that pen down.
Bruce shakes his head. “Highly doubt that, Y/N. I was about to
head down to grab some coffee but saw that your lights are still on. Do you
want to grab some coffee with me before we dive back in to finishing the papers?”
Bruce feels a little bit guilty that he is making you work overtime but those
documents need to be on his table come tomorrow morning. Though, despite the
guilt, he is quite happy to be able to be spending some time with you now.
You nod your head. “Oh, sure. Coffee sounds so good right now.”
You abandon your table and Bruce gives you a full smile, motioning for you to
follow after him. You thought by heading down, Bruce had meant the pantry but
apparently not, since the two of you headed to the elevator, heading towards
the ground floor. “I may have to grab my wallet –“
Bruce shakes his head, cutting you off. “My treat, Y/N. Because
of me, you are behind on those documents. The least I can do is offer you some
coffee.” Right at that moment though, your stomach growls, demanding to be fed
and Bruce chuckles. “Perhaps we should grab something light for dinner too?”
You laugh sheepishly, patting your stomach to calm it down. You
don’t even remember when was the last time you had eaten anything. You remember
eating a granola bar for breakfast that morning but that was about it. No
wonder your stomach is protesting – you missed lunch too.
The walk to the closest café took about ten minutes and in that
ten minutes, you have come to realize that Bruce Wayne is extremely handsome
and has very good humour too. Your boyfriend used to have some very good humour
as well until he started becoming very cynical and just downright annoying you.
At times, you wonder why you are even with him.
“So how’s life?” Bruce asks as he holds the door open for you
and you accidentally let out a sigh. Bruce raises one of his eyebrows. “That
bad, huh?” You thank him and the both of you walk in to the café. You gave him
a nod, letting Bruce lead you to the counter.
Bruce hasn’t always liked you in the first place. He had thought
you were a tremendous worker and you had obviously the passion for whatever it
is that you do. He thought you were a nice friend, one that is not afraid to
state your opinions too. He enjoys being friends with you. Somewhere along the
way, the respect he had for you grew and he started seeing you in a different
light. One that he had troubles getting his head around but now, he’s used to
it. He knows he has feelings for you – it’s growing in to something bigger than
just a crush now – but he also knows he won’t do anything since you are
currently in a relationship.
“Thank you.” You immediately grab a table for the two of you.
Bruce brings over the tray filled with drinks and sandwiches, taking a seat
across of you. “I know I say this a lot but thank you for this, really. The
last time I had food was probably this morning.” You tell him reaching for the
Bruce chuckles and reach for his own sandwich, taking a bite. It
doesn’t taste as delicious as Alfred’s but it will have to make do until he
gets home. “No problem, Y/N. I would not have been able to finish the documents
You laugh, shaking your head. “That’s a lie – you probably would
have stayed in the office the entire night.” You pointed out, taking another
bite of the sandwich. “This is pretty decent. I feel like I’ve tasted better.”
Bruce nods his head. “I can’t lie about that and true, Alfred
makes better sandwiches but this is decent and the place is pretty nice as
well.” Bruce comments, looking around the café. There weren’t a lot of people,
that is expected since it’s pretty late at night already but the fact that this
café is still open, it’s definitely a great place to go to for late night
“Yeah, I do agree. This is pretty nice and not far from the
office too.” You finish eating your sandwich and began taking a sip of your
drink. The two of you are quiet as Bruce continues to finish his sandwich. The
silence had been nice and comfortable – not awkward at all – though the moment
is broken when your phone began to ring endlessly.
You pick it up and let out a sigh, sending an apologetic look at
Bruce. He shakes his head. You answer the phone and sigh. “I’m still working –
I sent you a text earlier, right now? I left the office to grab a bite at the café
– of course, I am with Bruce – come on, can we talk about this later? Please just
drop it for now.” You exchange a few more words with your boyfriend and hang up
the call after that. You press your hand to your forehead, feeling a headache
coming from the conversation.
Bruce frowns. You didn’t look well after receiving that call. He
supposes it was from your boyfriend – he had briefly glanced at the ID caller
earlier – and wonders how you are truly feeling. “Trouble?” He couldn’t help
You nod your head. “It’s just things have been rough lately and
I feel like I’m not in to him anymore. He’s a nice guy but lately, I don’t
know.” You have no idea why you are telling this to Bruce but you really needed
to let it out. “Every single day he is always gripping me about something and I
just, I feel like I am starting to get really tired of it all.” You used to
really love your boyfriend – you had been high school sweethearts too – but nowadays,
you are starting to think that maybe it’s time for the two of you to break up.
Your eyes widen slightly when you realize what you have just thought of.
Bruce nods his head. He has a lot of things he wants to say but
he doesn’t because he does not want to be the reason you break up with your
boyfriend. He rather you break up with him on your own accord so Bruce can
pursue you after that. “I have nothing much I can say, perhaps you can try
stopping yourself by holding back. If you aren’t happy, make a change.” Bruce offers
an advice, thinking about all the times he had been unhappy with the situation
in his life. Thankfully, he had Alfred to help him. Perhaps all you needed in
your life is an Alfred.
You ponder his words for a few seconds before nodding your head.
“That makes sense.” It really does. Perhaps you need to move on from the past
to be able to live in the present.
“Should we head back to the office?” Bruce takes note of your
absent-minded look. You blink a couple of times before nodding your head. “Though
I do want you to go home and rest even if you did not manage to finish going
through all of the documents.” Bruce reminds you and you smile at him.
yes, i’m all about natural studying, studying without filters, messy tables and scribbled notes. but on the other hand, don’t invalidate people who put effort into their pictures. don’t put down people who like making pretty notes. don’t make them feel guilty for ‘spending too much time on the aesthetic’ or for putting in that extra effort to take a nice picture of their notes.
studying can be done in different ways, and we should appreciate all of them. messy tables. beautiful bullet journals. all kinds of handwritings. a sea of blue ink or a multicolor rainbow of a page. whatever floats your boat.
Everyone knows that everybody had different handwriting. As a writer, we should be observant of every aspect of daily life and take note of little things to make your writing come alive. Handwriting can be just the key.
How do they write? Do they write in sloppy cursive, neat cursive, half cursive half not? Can one ‘s’ be in cursive, and, in the same word later, be in print?
How hard do they write? Personally, I have to use a .9 mechanical pencil because I put my body in my writing. I can’t use cheap pens because I can get them to ink everywhere. Is this also a problem?
How often to they hand write? They only write on birthday cards, they never write, they write occasionally, or they write only for school.
What does their signature look like? My signature is legible- a fancy way of my normal handwriting. However, one of my roommate’s signature looks like a massive hairball. Even more, my mom’s signature looks like perfect cursive.
Do they cross their letters? Do they put a line through their 0′s, 7′s, or z’s? Why did they start that?
Do they have any other unique quirks? My z’s look like hybrid between a crossed and cursive z. Do they cross their t’s too high? Do their 2′s somehow look like 5′s?
It takes about one bottle of wine and three shots of tequila for him to get a little bit…. eccentric.
They’re all used to it, at this point. Especially Dazai, who now has a drunken redhead laying in his lap. Akutagawa looks vaguely disappointed, seeing his mentor inebriated to such a level. Dazai simply chuckles at the expressions if anyone around and runs his fingers through Chuuya’s hair, enjoying how soft the strands are.
“Dazai-san…” Chuuya lets out a little whine, turning over to bury his nose in Dazai’s stomach. “I’m hungry…”
“I know you are.” Dazai replies, grinning. “But you need some water first.”
“Screw you.” Chuuya grumbles, weakly pounding a fist into his thigh.
Dazai looks up at their companion, who is rubbing his forehead with pale fingers, looking frustrated. “Would you get him a glass of water?”
Akutagawa nods, “Anything to get him sober.” And slides out of the booth, the ends of his glossy black coat catching the light. He catches people’s attention as he walks towards the bar, with his pale skin contrasting against the midnight black of his cloak, making him look ethereal.
“Chuuya, why would you drink so much?” He murmurs, rolling the redhead onto his back. “You’re just going to make yourself shorter.”
Chuuya scowls up at him with hazy blue eyes, his nose scrunching up in an unbearably endearing way. Dazai reaches down and lightly taps Chuuya’s nose. The man pulls back, eyebrows knit in confusion.
“Don’t touch my nose!” He shouts, hands flailing.
Dazai promises not to touch his nose anymore, and instead goes back to massaging Chuuya’s hairline. The redhead tipped his head back at the new sensation, moving his head to press against the blunt nails of Dazai’s fingers. He looks very much like a cat, the hum in the back of his throat too akin to purring to be compared to anything else.
Chuuya suddenly looped his fingers around Dazai’s wrist, frowning. He studied Dazai’s palm, carefully, as if looking for something specific. His eyes glinted like diamonds in the low light, his red hair framing his features perfectly despite his chaotic state.
“Can I hold your hand?” He asked, voice so soft Dazai probably wouldn’t have heard if he hadn’t leaned in close.
He let out a huff of laughter. “Sure.”
Chuuya smiled, causing his heart to skip a beat as little dimples embedded into his pale cheeks. He laced their fingers together, delicately. His fingers were long and slender, his palm sliding and fitting perfectly against Dazai’s like a puzzle piece.
“Your hand’s warm.” He muttered, rubbing his thumb along Dazai’s knuckles. He looked utterly transfixed, eyes not leaving the sight of them intertwined together.
“It might just be the gloves.” Dazai teased. Chuuya looked at his other hand, which also had a glove, and pouted.
“This is so inconvenient.” He said, opening and closing his palm a couple of times. “I just want to hold your damn hand but this fabric is just…” He groaned, and let the limb drop back down to his side.
Dazai leaned down and kissed him on the forehead, lips lingering on the pink flush that decorated his brows.
“You’re cute.” He whispered, grinning at the pissed face Chuuya was no proudly displaying.
“I’m not cute!” Chuuya snapped, pounding his fist against Dazai’s arm. “I could beat you up, you piece of shit!”
“Please do.” Somebody deadpanned.
Dazai looked up to find Akutagawa holding a tall glass of water, looking absolutely horrified. “That’s so mean, Akuta-kun!”
“I hate you.” Akutagawa said, bluntly, and passed the glass to Chuuya. “Please be careful Chuuya-san.”
Chuuya wrapped his fingers around the glass, though the water shook violently. He tipped it to take a drink, but instead got some down the collar of his shirt.
He whined, burying his nose in Dazai’s shirt. “My life is so difficult.”
Dazai pet the back of his head, humming in sympathy. “Yes, yes. I understand that.”
“We should probably take him home.” Akutagawa noted.
Dazai sighed. “Good point.”
He stood, throwing Chuuya over his shoulder and suppressing laughter when they man squeaked in indignation. “C’mon, chibi, let’s go home.”
Chuuya’s body was curled around his, sending warmth to every limb. Dazai had to admit, even hysterically drunk, Chuuya managed to be adorable.
KIM TAEHYUNG’S NOT SO STRAIGHT TENDENCIES (a.k.a his gayest moments) PART 1
(I cannot provide media proof since that’ll take a lot of
time, but if you observe Kim Taehyung, you’ll get what I’m saying. Also, my native tongue is not english so I’m gonna have to ask you to excuse my shortcomings lol)
Before anything, I’d like to say that I acknowledge that Kim
Taehyung is definitely a beautifully unique person who has shown time and time
again how a person can have so many different sides. I am aware that he is the
embodiment of affection and appreciates physical contact BUT SOME THINGS BEYOND
THIS ARE JUST HARD TO IGNORE.
1. Muscle Kink
be something the less observable fans may have overlooked. There have been
several instances when our dear Taehyung had been a little bit too enthusiastic
about feeling up other men’s biceps and abs. I have seen him many times,
feeling up the other members, particularly Hoseok (in one of the latest Bon
Voyage episodes), Seokjin (during their earlier days), Jimin (occasionally, I
distinctly remember him feeling up Jimin’s abs) and Jungkook (on several
different times, he even bit his biceps for fuck’s sake). Even Namjoon from
time to time. And I’m certain that he had not only felt them up casually, if
his lip bites were anything to go by. (BONUS: His whole reaction to that one shirtless
crew member during one of the episodes in Bon Voyage S2?! He was definitely
checking him out, look at the video I posted if you wanna know what I’m talking
know he also has an affinity to being carried. I have never seen him show any
negative reaction when being manhandled by his members. I expect that we all
know his legendary moments when he purposely climbed onto other members’ backs
for a piggy back ride or randomly clings onto them like a koala. I have seen
videos from 2014 til today that can prove this. I remember that Seokjin tended
to play around with him and carried him bridal style during their fansigns
earlier back then. Also, he seemed very happy when Nate picked him up when they
were saying goodbye during AHL. I’ve also seen him demand piggy back rides from
Hoseok, Jimin and Jungkook. Sure, he may have complained during a particular
BTS Festa back then about Jungkook throwing him whenever he annoyed the maknae,
but seriously? Why would he even bother Jungkook again and again if he knew the
outcome was him being thrown around their dorm? The maknae even said that he’d
repeat annoying him for about thirty times? Something doesn’t seem right there.
(Also, while “complaining” I didn’t really see him be seriously troubled by it?
I don’t know if it’s just me).
also see how he held back his smile and tried to hide his excitement when he
got a piggy back ride from one of is Hwarang members during a photoshoot? Our
Gucci boy literally had sparkles in his eyes. (Also in Hwarang, when Hyunsik
just did the ‘dip’ with him? Y’know that that step in salsa. During one of
their photoshoots/interviews, when his hyung finally finished his shoot, he
went and bulldozed Tae off his feet. I didn’t see him complaining though, he
even had a huge smile).
Seokjin got pissed at them (him and Jimin) during ISAC 2017 and he carried
Taehyung towards where he threw his shoes, our little Taetae was giggly the
whole time and was completely flustered when it ended. (Also with Seokjin, when
they were promoting the Wings album, he suddenly clung onto him and let himself
be carried just like old times).
legendary Taekook moment during their concert in Japan. I forgot where it was
(Nagoya?). It was around 2016, if i’m not mistaken, when he got on Jungkook’s
back during their “Attack on Bangtan”
performance. He clung to him like a life line and he was truly enjoying
himself. (Bonus: when he also asked for a shoulder ride).
forget the instances when he just praised other members’ bodies. Like, saying
“Rapmon-hyung has the best body” and “Jungkook has a nice body”. I’m sure there
are a lot more, but I can’t remember.
anything else, I’m not ruling out any possibility of him being interested in
the opposite gender (because girls are fucking hot, trust me), but he has not
shown any genuine interest in them? I know that some of the fans would mention
the Star King thing? The one where this girl was teaching them exercises. I
honestly get annoyed when they make inappropriate jokes about this because
there was nothing really sexual about it at all? I mean, yeah, he glanced from
time to time but wouldn’t it be awkward and disrespectful to not look at an
instructor? (Others may say “but what about his facial expression?” Bitch, what
facial expression? All I saw was him trying to do the exercise and being in
slight pain while doing so because he doesn’t exercise regularly for shit). You
can also see that he was seriously trying to get the position right so he
observed well (he even did that cute little wall exercise for couples with the
other male mc).
notice that in award shows, he doesn’t look particularly enthusiastic about
girl group performances. Sure, he dances along to the catchy ones but unlike
other people, he doesn’t really give that much attention to it? (I understand
that it is disrespectful for them to stare, but I don’t think he feels the urge
to do so, he can give sneaky glances but I don’t see him doing that. Just pure
enjoyment and appreciation of music).
YamanTV (?) I’m not sure if the title is correct. One male MC suddenly felt the
need to voice out his opinion about Taehyung’s looks. Out of the blue, he
praised Taehyung for being very handsome (which made him shy), and then added
“you must be very popular with girls” which stopped him momentarily from
talking (he laughed at the comment), but then just continued talking like
general non-chalance about how girls could perceive his actions. There are a
loooooooooooooot of instances like this. When he was MC-ing with this other
female idol, and he just acted naturally goofy the whole time; when he added
sound effects to his comments when BTS and Twice were being interviewed about
their songs (he got shy at first like how most people would react but he got
over it instantly and went to do aegyo while imitating the girl group’s song);
when he literally twerked over the speaker during New Year(?) while the other
members of Red Velvet stared at him like he’s a madman during an award show;
AND his shameless flirting with his members during award shows, while in the
presence of female groups e.g. Taejin being playful at MAMA and TAEKOOK goofing
off during Golden Disk Awards while girl group members were literally behind
-I think he
is generally a spontaneous person and gaddamit, he does some pretty
questionable things when his bout of craziness comes around:
kissed Jungkook’s ears during one of the Festas, I literally just stared for a
few seconds because WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT? (That’s how not you get voted as
the favourite hyung).
graduation where he swiped some cake from Jin’s lips with his thumb and
literally sucked it, then smirking immediately after. (JESUS CHRIST)
earlier days when he grabbed the back of Seokjin’s head and pulled him in until
they were nose to nose (in an AIRPORT WTF).
acknowledging another man’s attractiveness. He would praise Hoseok from time to
time, saying he’s the most handsome; suddenly saying that Jungkook is sexy
during bon voyage season 1 AND (this one took me by surprise) When they were in
one interview with the Hwarang cast and they were watching some memorable
scenes, Tae said “You’re so handsome” out of the blue when he saw Hyungsik’s
character THEN he proceeded to be flustered and looked like he didn’t have the
intention to say it out loud like that. He said it with a somewhat exasperated
tone that fangirls have when they come to admire their male crushes. He was so
shocked that he voiced it out and became silent afterwards.
with male idols’ ears. This has somewhat become an endearing move when it comes
to Taekook since he does it to the maknae all the time, BUT we should also take
note that he does it to male idols who catch his interest (?) Bogum and Sungjae
eventually became his friends, right? AND SPEAKING OF BOGUM. No, I’m not gonna
talk about their Jeju date since straight men can also have “platonic dates”. Admittedly,
it was very cute though. I am, however, gonna point out about Tae’s fixation on
him. I have seen Tae interact with several idols and, for me, none of them had caught
Tae’s interest as much as Bogum did. When he first saw him MC-ing during an
award show, he immediately played with his ears and sent several glances in his
direction the whole time. (Not to mention he barely even looked at Irene, who
was also MC-ing with Bogum even though she was the one talking). It was also
said that he approached Bogum first backstage and asked for his contact. Then
when he was asked during celebrity bromance, he said that he contacted Bogum
every day. Also, out of all his friends idol friends outside Bangtan, he only
ever bothered to set up pre-planned dates with Bogum. You know what? I’ll talk
about the Jeju thing anyway. Why would he choose to spend the day immediately
after a tiring concert, to immediately fly to Jeju with him during one of their
rare rest days? (I’m not implying that they’re dating, what I’m saying is that
there is definitely an attraction that comes with that much effort, BONUS: have
you heard of the Korean reddit user who said Bogum bought him a drink when he
was in PULSE (a gay bar) and stated that Bogum had a super famous person with
him that night and they left together?). Having said that, he may find comfort
in hanging out with people who…share his sentiments.
the randomest shit he’s ever done this month. Sit on Jeon Jeongguk’s lap. Come
on, you’re lying of you say that that didn’t surprise you at least a little
bit. (BONUS they were both so GENUINELY flustered when it happened, it kinda looked like
it felt awkward for the other members).
NOTE: This is part 1 and I
basically put all the light stuff here. The heavy stuff is for the part 2. So,
I’m sorry if you think this was a waste of time, but I think part 2 is where
the serious stuff is at. I’ll be mentioning there his relationship with
members, some BigHit stuff (Stigma and the like) and a little about his background
AGAIN: I AM NOT STATING THAT HE IS
GAY. He may be perfectly straight and is actually just a very VERY touchy
person BUT please respect my opinion and I will respect yours. I WILL LOVE HIM
NO MATTER WHAT HE IS AND NO MATTER WHO HE LOVES SOOOO…UNTIL THEN :)
Today I overheard my brother watching the Game Theory video on Splatoon and how he mentioned that an octopus has great adaptation abilities, and I thought we should take it to the extreme. Note that the CR according purely to math is lower than a normal Mind Flayer, but the only aspects in which it is actually weaker are its AC and its HP (though its effective HP is actually higher than a normal Mind Flayer due to its resistance abilities). It’s much easier to hit than most enemies your players will be facing, and its defensive adaptations make for a combat in which your players have to be more varied or inventive with their fighting style to get around it.
EDIT: Also, as a rules clarification, the defensive adaptation does not work on the attack that triggers it. If it resists cold, necrotic, and radiant damage, and it takes fire damage, it takes the full amount of fire damage before replacing cold with fire. Otherwise, it would basically just have resistance to all damage.
“The Mind Flayers have always been a species that worked with evolution. A larva in a brain transforms the body, then they eventually could become an Elder Brain, or a larva unchecked could become a neolithid, while they also twist humanoid brains into their intellect devourers. It was only a matter of time before they became more deliberate.
“Through a mixture of alchemy and psionic manipulation of their own bodies, the illithids have learned to drastically speed up their evolutionary process- and what’s more, at will. Called Evolutionists, these are often sent as assassins to the surface world, usually taking along daggers or other weapons coated in poison as well as their own abilities.
“They’ve altered their eyes to better see their prey, they can control the colors and patterns on their skin so precisely that they can even create writing on themselves. Their body can adjust to toughen up against your weapons, or become flame retardant, or insulate themselves from cold, and even when you harm them they’ve been trained to almost subconsciously use their powers to heal their wounds. While they haven’t figured out how to improve their psychic assaults without exploding their own brains in the process, their brain extraction is fearful, as their teeth can adjust to rip through steel helmets and the bone of the skull.
“I should also say, as a warning: this is only the first generation, and only what we’ve been able to capture for experimentation. Who knows how many have had this technology, for how long, and whether or not they’ve improved upon it?”
i'm not sure if this counts??? but how about vampire au with vamp!akashi saving his human s/o from being fed on by other vampires? and since she's so scared he ends up taking her into his mansion and takes care of her! gentle vampire akashi ^^
Standing behind the red haired vampire, you tried not to look at any of his companions. You could hear a low hiss coming from the man in front of you, a warning that all the others should back off before anything could happen. Beneath you, your knees were shaking; you swore you could hear the bones rattling together, probably enticing the predators around you into thinking about just how much they wanted to get at their prey.
“We’re not going to kill her,” one of the vampires surrounding you said. “We just want a taste.”
Though you hadn’t looked up, you could hear the way he licked his lips. You could only imagine how they slid around his elongated teeth, fine tips poking into soft pink muscle. It made you want to gag and cry at the same time.
Akashi was silent for a moment longer, probably eyeing out the rest of them. When he finally spoke, it was as calm and collected as you’d ever heard it. “You know whose territory you’re on.”
The other vampires groaned in displeasure, knowing full well what would happen if they broke the rules set out on this land. Though you had no idea what kind of rules had been placed in this one directly, you knew consequences would be grave. Nobody ever went against something Akashi had set into place if they wanted to stay alive.
The rush of air had caught you off guard and, for a second, you thought something had grazed against your shoulder. When you looked up, Akashi’s back was no longer facing you and the two of you were no longer surrounded. His eyes were on you intently, looking you over for any injury.
“We should go home,” he said, taking note that not a single hair of yours was harmed.
“Yeah,” you agreed, more so to hear your own voice and assure yourself that it worked than to actually make the decision. Even if you didn’t want to leave, and boy did you want to leave, Akashi would have insisted.
He could tell you were tired. Now that the fear had left your mind, adrenaline was slowing down and exhaustion was eating away at you. With a small smile, one that was sympathetic and gentle, he offered you a hand. It was cold to the touch when you finally took it.
