Reaction to you flinching & covering your face during an argument

Request: BTS reactions to you flinching & covering your face in protection during a heated argument

❌ This reaction involves domestic violence/abusive relationships so if this triggers you or makes you uncomfortable, please don’t read it. ❌


Seokjin:
At this point you couldn’t even remember why you two were fighting, all you knew was there were hurtful words being said, but nothing either of you actually meant.
“Jin I can’t believe you right now, you’re such an asshole!”
“Fuck you y/n. I give up, I don’t know what you want me to do.” He said while throwing his hands in the air. You knew he would never hit you, but his sudden action caused you to flinch and cover your face in defence.
“No no no.. y/n I’m so sorry. I didn’t want to scare you, you know I’d never hurt you right? I love you, I’m sorry.”

Namjoon:
You guys were arguing because he hasn’t been home very often due to working on their comeback. You knew it wasn’t his fault, but you still wanted time with him to yourself.
“Y/n I’m sorry but I have things to do! You’re not the only important thing in my life you know!” He said while raising hands to run them through his hair in frustration. As he raised his hands, you automatically assumed he was going to hurt you, so you covered your face to defend yourself. When he saw you do this, his frustrated expression quickly turned into a soft, sad one.
“Y/n, baby. I.. I would never hurt you. I’m sorry, I know things are hard with this comeback but I promise I’ll spend more time with you, okay? I love you.”

Yoongi:
He was always blowing you off, but would never tell you why. Today was the day you found the courage to ask him why. Your mind was running wild, thinking of this possibility that he could be cheating on you broke your heart, but you needed to know.
“Yoongi, you’ve been really distant the past few weeks. Are you.. cheating on me?” You asked in almost a whisper, afraid of his reaction.
He just stared at you, both emotionless but shocked.
“What the actual fuck, y/n? You think I’d cheat on you?!” He yelled, pinning you to the wall.
He raised his hand which caused you to flinch. When he saw the scared expression on your face, he realized what he was doing and let go of you and lowered his hand. With tears in his eyes, he said;
“Y/n.. I-I’m so sorry. I don’t know what got in to me. I would never hit you, I hope you know that. I am so so sorry.. I love you..”

Hoseok:
You and Hobi have been fighting about pretty much everything lately, and he was sick of it.
“All we do it fight y/n! I don’t wanna do this anymore!”
“Do what? Be with me? Fine! I’ll leave then.” You said while walking towards the door.
He grabbed your wrist and roughly pulled you towards him which made you flinch. By now you both had tears in your eyes.
“Baby, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to be so rough, I do want to be with you. I just don’t wanna fight, okay?”

Jimin:
Jimin has been spending a lot of time with his new friend. You didn’t want to assume that he had feelings for her just because she’s a girl; you knew that a boy and girl could be just friends, but whenever he texts her, he blocks his phone so you can’t see. When she calls him, he won’t answer unless you’re not there. Any logical person would think he’s cheating, so why shouldn’t you think that? And to make matters worse, it was the day before your birthday, and he was with her instead of you. He had finally come home around 2 in the morning, and that’s when you’d had enough.
“Jimin what the fuck?! You’ve been out with that girl more than we have the whole time we’ve been together!”
“So? That’s none of your business!”
“Wow, Jimin. It IS my business. You know why? Because my boyfriend who I thought I could trust is now cheating on me! Why are you even here? Why don’t you go spend time with her?”
“Jesus, y/n. I don’t need your damn permission to go out with friends! And for your information, I’ve been with her planning a surprise party for YOU. Happy fucking birthday.” He said as he threw the glass that was on the table beside him.
He turned away after that, so he didn’t realize that the glass was thrown right beside you, making you flinch and cover your face so you wouldn’t get hurt. It wasn’t until he heard your quiet cries that put his angry emotions aside and turned around to face you.
“Y/n.. jagiya, I… I’m sorry I didn’t mean to throw it at you, it was a mistake I swear. Are you okay? Baby I’m so sorry…”

Taehyung:
It was a pointless argument. Taehyung was going on and on about how you shouldn’t be wearing such a short skirt on your date, but you saw it as your body, your choice, and Taehyung telling you what you could and couldn’t wear was crossing the line. You were leaning with your back against the wall with your arms crossed.
“I can wear whatever I want Tae, you’re not the boss of me.” You said while rolling your eyes.
That, unfortunately was a mistake. You rolling your eyes, disrespecting him was enough to set him off. He had his hands balled into fists and he snapped. The next thing you knew, his fists had created two holes in the wall, both right beside your head. This, of course caused you to flinch. His face was centimetres from yours, both of you in shock. A single tear fell from your eye and that was what made Taehyung realize how violent he was being.
“I.. jagiya.. I’m sorry. I didn’t hurt you did I? You know I would never do that to you.. I don’t know what happened. I’m so sorry, I love you..”

Jungkook:
Possessiveness. Greed. Jealousy.
Not very good words, yet they describe your long time boyfriend, Jeon Jungkook. This “International Playboy” could flirt with whoever he wanted, but when you do as much as even look at another guy, all hell breaks loose when you two are alone.
“WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK Y/N?! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU, FLIRTING WITH HIM RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME.”
He was furious. You’d never actually been scared of Jungkook, but this time was different. You may have been scared of his reaction, but you weren’t go to be treated like this nonetheless.
“I WASN’T FUCKING FLIRTING JUNGKOOK. YOU WANNA KNOW WHAT FLIRTING IS?!”
“Please, enlighten me.”
“Flirting is talking with every fucking girl you see when you’re on tour. Yeah, I know about that. I’m fucking done, jungkook. Done with your shit, done with us.”
And with that, you turned to leave your shared apartment. You had your hand on the doorknob as you felt a strong force turn you around and push you to the side. Jungkook never meant to actually push you, only to move you out of the way so you wouldn’t leave. So when he saw the shocked, scared look on your face, he immediately wanted to help in any way he could. He knelt down to help you up, but when he reached his hand out to you, you flinched and covered your face in fear he’d hurt you. This completely and utterly broke Jungkook’s heart. He loved you more than anything and you were afraid of him. This caused him to break down in tears in front of you. The rest of the night would be extremely quiet aside from him apologizing the entire night.
“I’m so sorry, y/n. I mean it. I would never purposely hurt you, I hope you know that. I’m sorry for everything.. but I do love you.”

I got way too carried away with these oops

Rain

Rick Sanchez x reader

Contains swearing, light smut/fluff(really just kissing)

——————————————

You let out a sigh as you tapped your fingers to the armrest of the couch, your nails softly scratching at the seafoam green upholstery. You had been in this position for what seemed like hours, watching the boring reality TV shows that came on. You were one of Summer’s closest friends. Beth had asked you to house sit while they left on vacation. Since you didn’t have anything planned and needed a bit of extra cash, you decided to accept. Plus, you knew they all needed a break, The divorce was hard on them, more than they’d like to admit.
You sighed and rubbed your eyes, standing from your place on the couch to push back the curtains from in front of the sliding screen door. Dark clouds had rolled over the sky, engulfing the world in rain. You loved watching it fall, listening to it pit pat down on the roof. Just as you were going to sit on the couch, a sound caused you to freeze. It was like a rustling, a clinking. Swallowing hard, you slowly make your way toward the kitchen, each step slightly wobbly. Once in the kitchen, you tried your hardest to get a knife from the drawer with utmost silence, holding it tightly in your dominant hand. A grunt caused you to look toward the entrance to the garage.

 "Fuck, fuck, fuck.“ You whisper to yourself harshly, cursing yourself for not locking the garage door. As soon as you heard the sound of the door opening, your hand snapped up before swinging down sharply to seize your attacker.

 "W-Woah there kiddo.” Your wrist had been caught hard, stopping it in the air. When you finally brought yourself to open your eyes, you were relieved to see Rick. He let go of your wrist, pushing past you to get to the fridge.
You always had a sort of fondness for Rick. He seemed so mysterious to you, so intriguing. You felt almost infatuated with him. You could listen to him talk for hours. He had such a hidden past, such an open future. He was such an interesting man. Though you’d never admit it, it was like you had a crush on him. You would constantly dismiss it as curiosity instead. You knew it would never work out, though you had a glimmer of hope after your 18th birthday had passed a month ago. ‘At least it’d be legal.’ You try to convince yourself.

“Jesus Rick, you scared the shit out of me. I thought you went on the trip.” You place the knife back in its respective drawer before turning back to face him.

 "I sent a clone.“ He shrugged as if it were an every day, nonchalant thing to talk about. You huff and cross your arms, slightly annoyed at him and slightly embarrassed with yourself.

"Why must you be so heartless?” You ask as you cock your hip to the side, your (e/c) eyes watching him for an answer. He turned from the fridge to look at you, beer in hand.

 "Why must you be so damn annoying?“ He asks as he cracks open the beer can. You sigh and push off the counter, walking past him to go back into the living room.

"I don’t understand why you couldn’t do this one thing for them. I mean, Morty and Summer are basically your test dummies. And Beth is none the wiser.” You retort with a bit of anger. Your nose scrunches up as you notice the neighborhood losing power. Slowly, each house shut off, the Smith house is the last to submerge into total darkness. You strain your eyes to get them to adjust to the sudden darkness. A gasp pulls from your throat as an arm wraps its way around your waist.

 "Maybe I didn’t want to go, huh? Maybe I wanted to stay here with you, huh?“ Rick’s gruff voice was now right beside your ear. It sent shivers down your spine. 

” y/n I’ve been around for a while. I know that look in your eye. You just don’t want to admit it.“ His grip on you tightens, your back now pressed firmly against his chest. His lips were pressed lightly to your neck. Your heart was thumping heavily in your chest. It was almost hard to breathe. 

"Y-You’re wrong.” You fight, grabbing his arm and trying to pry it off yourself. He let his arm up, but only to grab your wrist instead, yanking you toward him. He spun you before pushing you, your back now firmly against the wall. 

“You’re a lit- a little fucking brat. Y'know that?” He asked, his words dripping with annoyance. Just as you were going to protest, his lips pressed to yours. The kiss was hard at first, slightly uncomfortable. But soon enough you began to melt into it, grabbing the collar of his lab coat to pull him further into you.

I could make a part two if it’s wanted. My ask box is open btw! - Jas

Why I'm no longer a Jehovah's Witness.

The reason I’m a atheist isn’t because I don’t like the idea of God. It’s because I’ve studied the bible at great length and have found some fundamental flaws.

1. The Garden of Eden

So in the Garden of Eden, God allowed Adam and Eve to eat from any tree in the garden, except from one. If they ate from that tree, then they would no longer be perfect and would become sinful and die. Eve was deceived by a snake (Satan) and was told if she ate from it she would become like God, knowing good and bad (therefore being able to make a choice between them, which is freewill). So Eve took the fruit to Adam and they ate it. They were cast out of the garden of Eden and lead long lives of suffering because of this.

My problem with this story, is that God is described as a merciful, loving character, that gives people second chances, as long as they have the right heart condition. But why would God put the tree in the garden in the first place? Surely by not allowing them to have access to it, is straight away tempting them to eat from it. If Adam and Eve didn’t eat from it, then surely over time as more people populated the earth, someone would have eaten from it, therefore causing them to be cast out and to be imperfect and to sin and die. So why would a loving God put this temptation there in the first place? Because of one man and womens “sin” the rest of all generations of humans have had to suffer because of this. 

Now by deceiving Eve, Satan was challenging god, saying that he didnt have the right to rule and that humans could rule themselves because now, they know from good and bad. So baring that in mind, is gods right to rule, worth millions upon millions of people suffering and dying? Doesn’t that seem extremely selfish and unloving? Not to forget that it completely contradicts the whole purpose of the bible of God loving us. I don’t want anything to do with a God that would put himself before the suffering of people he claims to love so much.

2. Free will. 

Apparently god gave us free will. But if the first choice, that the first humans had , was to live not knowing good from bad(pretty much like toddlers) or eating from this tree and positivily dying, then its not much of a choice is it? That’s just manipulating the subject into thinking they have free will, but you’re really just choosing for them, or giving them such extreme circumstances that obviously no one is going to take the dying option. That’s so far from free will is disgusting. And it’s the same now. The bible says you have to do x, y and z other wise you’ll die at Armageddon. Some of those things being fornication, adultery, HOMOSEXUALITY ( basically anything that ISNT heterosexual), GETTING DRUNK etc. That’s not giving you a choice. That’s manipulating the believer into doing what you want, out of fear of being killed.

3. Homosexuality

There is no explanation why homosexuality is a sin. None what-so-ever. It JUST IS. That’s not good enough for me. Love is love. Why should it matter what gender you fall in love with and why should the consequence of being something that’s natural to so many people be death? You can’t tell a whole bunch of people that they can’t live forever in paradise because they “commit homosexual acts”. It’s ridiculous. Which leads me to believe that God doesn’t like anything that he didn’t originally purpose, meaning he isn’t open minded to new things. But the bible teaches people they have to change for the better, to Gods “standards”. So God expects us to fully change ourselves but he cant even accept one new thing he didn’t purpose for us.

4. Equality

Women aren’t equal to men in the bible. Ranking order goes: 

.Jehovah

.Jesus

.Angels

.Men

.Women

So we’re the lowest of the low. But I thought God loves us all the same? Well apparently not. Women are not allowed to teach men! They’re not allowed to be elders or ministerial servants OR EVEN SAY A PRAY OUT LOUD IN THE PRESENCE OF A MAN! Many reasons I’ve heard for not allowing women to be Elders (like priests) in the congregation is because “they’re too emotional and can’t disconnect themselves to judge a situation”. That’s completely sexist and stereotypical and disgusting. Since there’s no proof that God inspired the writers of the bible, they basically thought women are worthless and had to shove it into a religion.

5. Animal rights

The bible says that the wicked people will die at Armageddon and everyone who survives will live on a paradise earth forever. Those already dead will be resurrected (as death acquits you from any sin) Yet animals apparently don’t get a resurrection. This bothers me because animals are the most innocent creatures on this planet and yet under go inhumane suffering all over the world because OF HUMANS. So why do innocent sentient beings not get another chance? The horrible cruel life they have now is all they have according to the bible.

6. Disfellowshipping

When people stop believing or do something wrong, they’re supposed to be excommunicated. Also known as disfellowshipping. This means they cannot have any contact with family or friends within said congregations, UNTIL they come back and rejoin. That my friends is emotional black mail. The only reason people will come back is to be with their family! What loving religion would separate families because one person believes something different. Not loving at all. Now that I’ve met many ex JW’s on this site, I know how traumatic and emotionally abusive this religion is. It turns families against each other and leaves scars that can never be healed.

7. Birthdays

There is no scripture saying you can’t celebrate birthdays. And yet jw’s won’t celebrate them because there were two examples of birthdays in the bible and at both a person was killed. The events that took place on those birthdays were bad, but that doesn’t mean birthdays are bad.They think that funerals are a time to remember a persons life which is true, you mourn and remember. But Why not celebrate the fact a person is alive another year? Where we can still speak to and touch them and be grateful they are still here? I mean we are grateful every single day but what’s wrong with having one special day that we pay extra attention to? Also another reason I heard was that the bible never mentions Jesus celebrating his birthday and we have to follow in his footsteps. God forbid we think for ourselves and do something Jesus hasn’t mentioned before.

If any witness can give me an explanation of these 6 things then maybe I will consider going back, but so far all I have is ”That’s jehovahs way of doing things and since he is perfect he is never wrong” “We all have to make sacrifices” “You’re going to fall away from Jehovah because you’re an animal justice warrior?” “Homosexuality is disgusting and unnatural. ITS A PERVERSION! Two men having sex is the same as having sex with animals” “Jehovah was testing Adam and Eve’s loyalty and now we’re paying the price.”

Incompetent answers for an incompetent book.

Birthdays Aren't Important, But You Are

 fandom: bts
➢ pairing: seokjin x namjoon
➢ genre: angst, fluff
➢ warning: suspected infidelity
➢ word count: 5,000

summary:

Seokjin wasn’t really the jealous type. He had a lot of trust in Namjoon and his friends and the idea of being cheated on had never really crossed his mind throughout his entire relationship with the younger. Jealousy was a foreign feeling, but curiosity tended to overpower him more often than not.

But when Namjoon took awhile to answer, accidentally knocking his head with the cupboard door, Seokjin paused to stare at his boyfriend. A small inkling of doubt began to prickle his mind when Namjoon answered him without meeting his eyes.

Or, when Seokjin thought Namjoon was cheating on him when he tried to keep a secret.

Things I Learned About God This Summer 2k14

I haven’t done a life update in a while. So bear with me. God is GOOD.

As this summer comes to a close I have come to realize three things.

  1. God’s presence does not depend on how we feel
  2. If you ask, He will come
  3. He is alive and well, continually working in our lives

His presence:

It’s everything, it’s everywhere. What is it? The power of the Holy Spirit can empower you to speak words others need to hear. It will bring conviction when you want to block out every single person’s advice. It will restore your relationship with Christ, because it is God’s messenger. The power of the Holy Spirit isn’t some creepy ghost floating around your head like casper or the Flying Dutchmann. But it alters you into who God wants you to be, IF YOU LET HIM.

His coming:

Christ came to Earth, He lived, He was flawless, He was spotless, He was perfect. He died the most tragic death with the entire weight of sin upon His human body. He rose again to defeat the grave once and for all. And He lives because He is God and He is freedom. That is the life we are to live (not the whole dying for the sins of the world thing) but the living of resurrection life. We are to live as if Heaven is at our doorstep. We are to proclaim that He is GOOD and He is FAITHFUL. The pain you endure now is incomparable to the glory that God has in store. So be patient and persevere. Our purpose on earth was determined before we were breathed from dust. He knew us because we set foot on Earth. And He DESIRES us. He wants us to invite Him into our hearts because He has already invited us. We just have to accept Him. Our hearts are evil, heavy burdened, full of deceit. Yet God Himself wants to accommodate His infinite goodness into our tiny, hearts. That is Our God. So gracious, so humble, so mighty.

Miracle Maker:

Yes His power is infinite. Yes He created the stars and calls them by name. But how is He a personal God? Why don’t miracles happen today like they did in Jesus’ time or even before that? Well they do. And God has given us this power to do it in His name. The name above all names. (I hope my Aunty doesn’t mind me sharing this) But in early May she was diagnosed with a massive tumor overtaking her cerebral cortex (the most important part of our brains i’d like to think) and of course our entire family were devasted, broken and we asked God why? But we pressed in with complete faith, that God WILL HEAL. So she booked in her surgery for July 4th (the day after her birthday) and we contineud to pray. I was in the US during the time of her surgery and the times when family was praying. (i’m so bummed that i wasn’t there to support) anyway, one night, I got on my knees and began to worship God, with a humble heart, with complete brokenness that we all have. I pleaded that God would heal her, our whole family did. So she went through with surgery, and after she was out of unconsciousness she began to speak already…! She said to the doctor: “why aren’t you in surgical attire?” Every single day after the surgery the progress of recovery was leaps and bounds. It was really a miracle! She is completely healed and the part of her brain where the tumor was is completely back to normal. Her faith inspired our entire family to do more for God. After a week she told us all she remembered, was lifting her hands when she was in ICU and praising God and thanking Him silently. There’s something completely beautiful about a humble heart worshipping God in the storm. He will never reject praise no matter how small, no matter where you are. He loves You. Just ask for His presence, Just ask for Him to give you a miracle that He be glorified. He is so worthy, so glorious. Take heart because He Has overcome. He wants you to invite Him into Your life. This world is chaos, but He is firm, secure and everlasting. Though you will stumble, You will only fall into His love and His grace. 

I love you guys so much. Thank you for going on this journey with me. Christ is enough, always has been, always will be.

-Marc
