Cas has shy wings. He’ll fold them up tight next to him or duck them under his arms when he thinks someone is coming too close. He’ll hide them away when they meet anyone new.
But, when Dean has a terrible night and he’s sitting on the floor, Cas sits next to him and slowly, slowly lets them unfurl, just ghosting around Dean’s frame like an umbrella. It’s so close and Dean can’t help himself. He raises a shaky finger and brushes one of the feathers with it. Involuntarily, Cas’s wing flutters back with a whoosh and Dean thinks he’s hurt him. When he looks at Cas’s face, the angel has his eyes closed and he’s biting his lip.
Dean opens his mouth to apologize, but when he does, he realizes that Cas’s wing is still slowly coming closer. Closer. Dean watches, mesmerized as the tip of the wing dips and brushes, feather soft along his arm, Cas’s hands in fists as the angel breathes out.
Dean touches Cas’s hand in reassurance watching it unfurl. The muscles in the sides of Cas’s eyes relax and finaly, he lets them blink open.
The two men are close, foreheads touching, holding hands. Dean holds perfectly still when he feels the wing tentatively wrap around his arm, slowly tightening. It’s intimate and he can see Cas’s lips twitch with tiny shudders Dean doesn’t fully comprehend, and he knows. Knows Cas has never done this.
So, they stare, the feathers fusing to Dean’s skin, their breaths heating up the tent that’s created under the giant blanket of wings, one over their head now as the space between them gets smaller and smaller. And Cas’s fingers tremble with every miniscule twitch Dean makes, even as the hunter tries to stay achingly still.
Cas’s breaths are fast, his hair wild, his eyes bright even under their shadow of black.
Dean’s out of breath, too, simply from watching Cas come undone.
Then, leaning forward as slowly as he can manage, Dean kisses him chastely, noting the way that Cas’s lips are soft too, in a different way, the movement of their mouths together small, but desperate as Cas’s wings tighten around them with a growl.
Dean doesn’t know when it happens, but suddenly, he’s holding Cas, the angel’s head against his chest, his eyes closed. He looks exhausted and small.
Lightly, Dean kisses the top of his head, tasting a little fluff of hair between his teeth.
“Thank-you” Dean whispers, and he feels the flutter of wings against his skin.
if i fought this indie singer, who would win? (pt. 2)
so i saw this text post floating around a few years ago and absolutely loved the concept. so, just to make it certain i’m not stealing your idea, rather just adding some other artists i think should be mentioned. original text post by @miragesofu! here we go.
Ed Droste (Grizzly Bear): There is a 40% chance Ed knocks you out. He’s so full of love and in a happy relationship with his adorable boyfriend. Although I feel like if threatened, his inner protective grizzly bear could come out. (Like that time he roasted Taylor Swift on Twitter?) So if you really want to, you can fight Ed. (But why would you want to?)
Ellie Rowsell (Wolf Alice): There is an 80% chance Ellie knocks you out. I mean have you seen how much cred she has from being in one of the best grunge/indie bands in the modern music scene? Also, her brother is a model so they could both just easily stun you with a glance. Don’t fight Ellie.
Yannis Philippakis (Foals): Turn around. Walk the other direction. He will get Dickensian on your ass. There is no way in HELL you are gonna win this one. Sure, he’s 5′7 but this man has the strength of 10 greek gods. He may come off as cuddly and soft (which he is) but it’s all a front. Don’t. Fight. Yannis.
Jack Steadman (Bombay Bicycle Club): 0% chance Jack knocks you out. He’ll most likely be preoccupied with sampling the most indie shit you’ve ever heard that he won’t even realize he’s supposed to be in a fight. Fight Jack.
Joe Newman (Alt-J): 50% chance Joe knocks you out. He’s got a bit of pent up anger from people always asking what his band’s name means. He’s got a soothing voice that could put you in a trance mid-fight so, it’s up to you. So if you’re up to it, Fight Joe.
Harry Koisser (Peace): -500% chance Harry knocks you out. I mean come on, he’s in a band called Peace. Doubt he’s gonna be in any fights anytime soon. He’s always wishing he had perfect skin so I doubt he’s gonna want to get it all cut up. I mean, sometimes he kinda deserves to be punched 4everever. so. Fight Harry.
Alex Trimble (Two Door Cinema Club): 0.5% chance he knocks you out. He’s all recovered from the hiatus and is back to his normal self. Although, he’ll probably be lecturing you on why social media is corrupt and ruining our lives. He’s also lost his northern irish accent completely. So for that reason alone: Fight Alex.
Van McCann (Catfish and the Bottlemen): 30% chance Van knocks you out. He’s not the strongest dude in the game, but he’s definitely got determination. If anything, he’ll get a good punch in but it will most likely have been complete luck. He’s a good guy though. Fight Van.
Connor Schofield (Jaws): 60% chance Connor knocks you out. He’s in one of the best indie bands right now and has written some Bops. Been on sold out tours and has 2 albums out. All of this under his belt whilst being unsigned. This guy has some tricks up his sleeve. So if you want to? Fight Connor?
Dave Bayley (Glass Animals): 60% chance Dave knocks you out. In a physical fight? Maybe not. But in a battle of wits this kid would have you begging for mercy. Went to Oxford University and is super smart just because. Brought back Pineapple’s and made them indie again. Don’t fight Dave.
Elena Tonra (Daughter): This one’s gonna end in a draw. Sure, she’s super cute and super petite but have you heard her lyrics? This girl has experienced a bit of life here and there. Once you hear those words all you’re gonna want to do is make her a cup of tea and ask her if she’s ok. Don’t fight Elena.
Matt Hitt (Drowners): -0% chance Matt knocks you out. This guy is like best friends with Alexa Chung and dated that one girl from 50 shades. He’s gotten cool from the people he knows. Sure. he’s got a cute face but the only thing he’ll get out of a fight is looking super angsty with a bruised eye. Fight Matt.
Josh Tillman (Father John Misty): -420% chance Josh knocks you out. He’ll be too busy writing about the demise of our society while simultaneously calling you out on your bullshit. He’s got some important things to say, but let’s admit it. He needs a good punch. Fight Josh.
Ben Howard: 15% chance Ben knocks you out. This guy’s middle name is angst. It isn’t. But it should be. He’s got some words that can tear your heart out. But overall, he just wants to be listened to. Don’t fight Ben.
Justin Vernon (Bon Iver): 10% chance Justin knocks you out. I mean come on, we’ve all heard holocene. That guy wouldn’t hurt a fly. Although he is very versatile and could be useful in a fight. (Most likely not). It won’t get you anywhere, so unless you really want to, Fight Justin.
Declan McKenna: -0% chance Declan knocks you out. This kid is one of the youngest in the game right now. Memes are his thing. Relatable to them #youngpeople. He’s just so easy to make fun of. So for the fun of it and because it’ll be an easy win, Fight Declan.
Mac Demarco: 0% chance Mac knocks you out. This guy is the literal definition of chill. He’ll probably offer to grill you a hotdog or some weird shit like that. He’ll get in a fight with you and at the end of it all still tell you “God Bless.” Just because it’ll be fun, Fight Mac.
Thomas Mars (Phoenix): 0.5% chance Thomas knocks you out. This guy is like 40 something now? Been in the game for long while. One of the OG Indies. There will probably be some sort of language barrier between you two, so it’s probably not even worth the fight away, Don’t fight Thomas.
Gary Lightbody (Snow Patrol): 5% chance Gary knocks you out. He’s a bit tired of being known as that ‘Chasing Cars’ guy. He’s also Irish so I wouldn’t want to fight an angry Irish man. But then again, he’s just another tall lanky Irish dude. Fight Gary.
Sameer Gadhia (Young the Giant): 50% chance Sameer knocks you out. This guy has the face and voice of an angel. Again, super smart and witty. But at the same time, has something intimidating about him. I’d say it’s a hit or miss. Don’t fight Sameer.
Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys): 0% chance Dan knocks you out. Okay this dude not only has The Black Keys, but has another band called The Arcs AND a solo project. Someone needs to tell this guy to sit down and take a break. He’s probably tired as hell. Fight Dan.
1. the ‘casual’ fan - “Oh, Ryan’s great I love what he’s brought to us creatively and internally sob waiting for something new so I’m gonna watch ‘well I’m afraid that I ten hour version’ on YouTube now because he has the voice of a dying emo angel. His hands and face and everything is perfect.”
2. the ryden truther - “ CAPE TOWN. SEATTLE. THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE. RYAN STILL LOVES BRENDON BUT BRENDON IS TOO SALTY TO RETURN HIS LOVE AND DEVOTION. PANIC BROKE UP BECAUSE OF RYDEN. BRENDON CRIED THROUGHOUT V&V TOUR AND SARAH SMILES IS A LETTER TO BOTH SARAH AND RYAN. THROAM IS MY BIBLE. IT WAS NEVER A LIE.”
3. the brendon sucks fan - “ Ryan wrote all the lyrics to AFYCSO and practically all Pretty Odd and if it wasn’t for Ryan, Brendon would still be making smoothies in Las Vegas. How dare Brendon take all the credit for AFYCSO. Asshole. ”
The second big piece of news of the day is our new rival unit! ZOOL is a “tetrarchy of madness and destruction”, and as that flavor text would suggest, they’re a four-person unit.
Isumi Haruka (CV: Hirose Yuuya)
Age: 17 Height: 170cm Quote: I’ll turn what they think are angels into devils. Profile: He has a sweet face, but behind that he won’t acknowledge those who won’t acknowledge him. He’s a self-centered high school student. ZOOL’s vocalist.
Inumaru Touma (CV: Kimura Subaru)
Age: 20 Height: 176cm Quote: I’ll never sing seriously again. Profile: He was once very earnest about music, but he now only acts to get revenge on TRIGGER. ZOOL’s vocalist.
Natsume Minami (CV: Nishiyama Koutarou)
Age: 19 Height: 174cm Quote: Those with abundant popularity should quickly exit the stage. Profile: A former child acting prodigy who hides darkness behind his composed and gentle smile. ZOOL’s performer.
Midou Torao (CV: Kondou Takashi)
Age: 21 Height: 185cm Quote: There’s been nothing negative about my life since the day I was born. Profile: He’s been blessed with talent and a favorable environment since birth. He has great confidence in himself and will use women freely. ZOOL’s performer.
Rather than the usual number theme, these new characters seem to be themed based on animals of the zodiac! In order, they contain characters for boar (亥), dog (狗), snake (巳), and tiger (虎).
a/n: this was supposed to be a warm up!! i don’t know what happened!!
You’d be a goddamn liar if you said you didn’t know Park Jimin. Everybody knows Park Jimin, and if they don’t, everybody knows of Park Jimin.
Park Jimin walks around campus like he owns the entire university, hands casually thrown into the pockets of his expensive black pants, sunglasses balancing on top of his intentionally disheveled black hair, silver earrings and studs and rods decorating his earlobes, leather jacket not worn, but strewn over his shoulders, complementing that delicate silver chain around his neck perfectly. Or perhaps, he isn’t wearing a fully black ensemble that likely costs more than your tuition. Maybe he’s a bit more laid back, with an outrageously vibrant sweater, the Gucci logo stamped all over it, blue jeans, ripped at the knee like he had worn right through them. He’s got circular frames surrounding his eyes even though he doesn’t need glasses, a beanie or beret sitting happily on his head if he didn’t have time to put his usual amount of product in his hair, Rolex watch peeking out from the oversized sleeves of his sweater. Park Jimin knows how to wear everything and anything with confidence, flair, so he is hardly difficult to miss.
I think Castiel had his first moment of fascination with Dean Winchester when he saw how broken and lost he was.
You can see how he moves towards him, mesmerized by his soul. Castiel’s almighty petulance made him feel like a savior, a merciful benefactor taking on a “personal” mission to save and rescue this precious and wounded human, just like humans sometimes take a chance and try to rescue some poor animal in need, for example. In the beginning, you may be the size of the Chrysler Building compared to this tiny cat or dog. Then you give yourself to caring for it and end up inadvertently adding a new member to your family.
Years later, with X damages to your apartment and X bills from your vet, someone will ask you about the story of how you got this cute dog.
You will proudly tell the history of your amazing rescue and how generous you were, helping this tiny creature that needed you so much. And while you are explaining how you gave him a name, about the first time he peed on your carpet, and many shoes he shredded, you realize that now you are the one unable to live without him.
So in the middle of telling about your generosity as a rescuer, you realize you lost track of when he begin to take control over your life and feelings. You start recalling all the times his presence was key in your life as a source of happiness and companionship, and you realize that the true and amazing rescue story is actually the last X years of your life spent with this animal. Sorry to compare Dean Winchester with a wounded little puppy, but you can´t underestimate the power of love in whatever way you find it at the beginning.
Poor Castiel, so regal, so powerful and yet helpless, still learning 8 years later to this day about how you have to give up your notions of a grandiose existence if you want to let yourself be rescued by this endless source of amazement that is love, which comes in all shapes and transforms the very core of your existence.
To be honest, I don’t like the idea of him becoming human again, just for the sake of Destiel as the end game. Forget the human sexuality issue, and all the controversy because of their genders or orientations. Dean is bisexual, and Cas doesn’t give the flying fuck about “sexual orientation”, as he himself said before. I believe the true tragic love story is about how Castiel the Seraph - with a true form of the size of a Chrysler Building, with 4 heads and 3 sets of wings full of eyes, a majestic multidimensional wavelength of celestial intent - still stands alongside this semi-alcoholic bisexual hunter who still calls him a “dumbass”.
I hope I don’t offend anybody with these ramblings that woke me up this morning. But I love Castiel as an angel and a celestial entity, and I hope he can be who he really is, until the moment of his comeback. Destiel is my Ship and I believe in it, but it’s not fair to sacrifice the magnificence of an amazing and mystical creature in order to fulfill a romantic trope. That is the challenge that I will gave to any writer, to make that kind of relationship work. Dean as a bisexual hunter human, Cas as a celestial entity contained by a human vessel. I believe that the transformative nature of love can drive both to a middle ground where Cas doesn’t have to become human.
I just realize that, in my understanding, Castiel will be the one giving up everything for a human relationship. And thinking about the real power of love beyond species or gender makes me believe that the love these two deserve may not be as physical as we think, or we would like to see. Yes, I also want to see them kiss and jump each other’s bones.
But what would Dean Winchester be willing to give up for the sake of this love, which he may not be ready to receive or give? I am just remembering how Superman (whom will be key in the second part) once tried to be human for love, and then the responsibility of his powers and his love for Lois make him come back to his powers again. I believe Castiel is important in Supernatural - as an Angel, not just as a love interest.
But reading again from the beginning of my explanation, there should be just a quirk remark about how hot Cas looks in this scene, I recall my own experience. So, this gave me enough reasons to believe that maybe Castiel, being the mature one in the relationship, would willingly give up his powers and the rest of his grace for love (that coincidentally is the title of my blog, oh! the irony).
Not to please Dean, or to make their relationship easier, but maybe because rescuing this wounded puppy has shown him how happy he can be if he let himself go, including his wings, grace and halo. Because of the circumstances that lead him to kill Billie, to say ‘I love you’ to a human, and for the chance of real love that he may experience after all. Then, he may find the need to be at the same level of this puppy because it was him who truly rescued him from his almighty ego and give him one or two lessons about redemption.
*now allow me to cry and hour or two in my personal pit of despair*
Thank you very much my dear @starsinursa for helping me in the proof reading and the correction of this extra long rambling.
Daichi: oh, god, are you sure? y’know you’re not really going to fight, right? like, you can try, but all he’ll do is tell you that fighting is bad. that you should never ever fight. he’ll lecture you. and if you don’t stop, he’ll fucking call your mom. for your own sake, do not fight daichi.
Suga: you can fight suga, but do not look at his face. do not spare a single glance at his face. why? because he’s beautiful. he has the face of an angel and while you’re too busy staring at his beauty he’ll hit you with the taser he’s always carrying in his bag. i warned you.
Asahi: you want to fight asahi, but asahi doesn’t want to fight you. w-why are you l-looking at him? n-no, please don’t. j-jesus? n-no, he’s not jesus. why are you kneeling? his name is asahi, it’s okay, he forgives you for pushing him, please, stand up.
Tanaka: fight tanaka. he’ll try to intimidate you with creepy faces, and by shouting, and cursing at you. you’ll find out that he’s not all barks and no bite, because tanaka does really bite. and he pulls hair too, he’ll do anything to win. you’ll be covered with bite marks, bruises, and maybe you’ll get a chewed gum in your hair. definitely fight tanaka, it’s a good experience, and a good story to tell others.
Nishinoya: you shouldn’t fight him because if an officer passes by and sees you, he’ll fucking put you in jail for assaulting a high schooler, but does he have a pottymouth despite his tiny figure. anyway, abort mission, abort.
Tsukishima: annihilate him before he has the time to open his mouth. this guy can sass you to death. be careful while you’re fighting him.
Yamaguchi: you can fight yamaguchi, but then you’ll feel bad about it. i mean, he’s so precious. just look at his freckles. they’re so pure. he’s so pure. it’d be like punching a kitten. worse, punching a kitten that just wanted to be pet. don’t fight yamaguchi.
Kageyama: why would you want to fight him? but, hey, try, sure, go ahead. but, i’m telling you kageyama will just argue with you and insist that you were wrong. he’ll be so confident of it that you’ll be convinced that he’s right, and you’ll be the one apologising. look, don’t waste your time. don’t fight kageyama.
Hinata: you know that there is always someone looking after him from afar, don’t you? fight him, but then be prepared to get your ass kicked by all the bodyguards he himself did not even know he had. and they’re all almost 2m tall, and they’re scary. especially the menacing white hair guy with no eyebrows. let it go. just. just, let it go.
Yachi: what? you want to fight yachi? really? well, you’re a disgusting person. how can you even think about hurting this scared snowball? be ashamed of yourself.
Kiyoko: we both know you’re not really trying to fight her, but just leave an impression on her. she’s so hot. i want to marry her too.
Shy!dan puck!phil there first time with blushing and wining and a reasuring phil please
Yo so this is essentially the plotline for my Babygirl fics lmao but I didn’t wanna be lazy and just link them so I changed things up a bit I hope that’s cool?? Here we have a little less cliche shy, awkward, virgin punk!phil and a forward as fuck pastel!dan with a sexy first time and some praise kink. Also minor drug warning for The Weed.
met Daniel Howell yet, but he thinks he just might be the love of his life.
He’s a friend of a friend of a friend of Phil’s and Phil wouldn’t even know of
his existence if he hadn’t started scrolling through the all guests tab on one of his Facebook events. Phil’s thumb stops
swiping upwards the moment he sees his profile picture and he clicks on it
without hesitation. He spends a little while appreciating – okay, stalking –
his profile; it’s set to private, so he doesn’t really get access to much
except a few photos, but…well, the boy is gorgeous. There’s no two ways about
it. He has the face of an angel and the flower crown to match. All Phil has is
a name and a face and he’s already smitten. Honestly, it’s no wonder he’s still
Find Keeper of Streams & Waterfalls Min Yoongi (here) Find Keeper of Rabbits & Deer Jeon Jungkook (here) Find Keeper of Trees and Roots Park Jimin (here) Find Keeper of Birds and Raptors Kim Taehyung (here)
collectively referred to as ‘prince’ of the wolves, not just their keeper, because of his royal good looks
in direct sunlight his eyes can look yellow instead of brown, and his teeth seem slightly sharper than a normal persons, accompanied with the fact that he happens to wear a fur cape around his shoulders ,,,,,, like you see where im going with this,,,,,,,,,,he looks like a wolf
even his nails are longer than a normal fairies or humans
and out of all the keepers he was actually raised by the animals that he guards like jungkook and taehyung have special bonds with their animals but seokjin,,,,,,seokjin knows nothing but the rules of the wolves
and it might be the fact that he was raised by the head of the pack that seokjin kind of has this regal air about him,,,,,like ,,,he’s very head and shoulders above the other keepers when it comes to keeping composed and having his head on straight
and he feels the most powerfully about staying away from people. he knows far too well that wolves are treated as monsters and are hunted for fun by them
and it makes him furious, to the point that he has thought about attacking hunters - but he knows that revealing his identity could only cause harm and that he might be taken out of the forest and away from his “family”
the other keepers don’t necessarily fear him but they’re a bit weary so seokjin ends up not really communicating with them all that much. keeper jungkook isn’t scared of him but since he watches over rabbit and deer, common meals for the wolves, he kind of has a snide position toward seokjin
keeper namjoon is the only one he really talks too, but even for the fairies they don’t know much about seokjin
seokjin’s best friend in the pack is a wolf named jjanggu who follows him around like a dog
and since seokjin isn’t a hybrid he actually likes to cook when he’s not eating with the pack, but the wolves tend to stay away from a fire if seokjin sets one except for jjanggu who curls up beside it and lets seokjin lean on him for warmth and support
but other than his ability to make fire and season meals, he’s just another wolf to the pack
and so when danger is near, i.e. hunters, seokjin climbs the trees and whistles to the wolves if he sees the hunters approaching
and although he can’t run as fast as the wolves, if needed he can hide among the trees or one of the wolves lets him hop on their back
and seokjin loves the spring, he loves the sunlight and when winter comes around he always has to make up for the fact that he doesn’t have fur with wearing whatever layers he can find and it’s annoying, he can’t run freely with the wolves or help them hunt he always stays behind with the nursing mother wolves because it’s too cold to go running through the forest barefoot
and one day, in the middle of the dreaded winter, you decide that you should go out into the forest because someone requested camellia’s in your flower shop and you’d yet to order any
but being a flower that blooms wildly and in the colds of winter, you knew you could probably find someone in the neighboring woods
so putting on some snow boots and coat you set out with a basket in hand and you were glad that the sun was out and it didn’t look like it would snow,,,,,,,,,,
until it the wind picked up right as you were picking some camellia’s you found and almost knocked you off your feet
and you know you should head back, but there were so many more camellia’s left to be picked and a lil wind didn’t mean a storm BUT,,,,,,,alas,,,,,,,,,,,,you were very very V ER Y Wrong,,,,,,
and the storm is strong,,,,so much so that when you try to get up the wind only pushes you back further and further until you give up and set your basket of flower down beside a tree and hide behind it to get away from the wind
but ontop of that it’s also began to snow and you’re mentally fREAKING out because you could very well get trapped here until the storm was over and you aren’t so sure your jacket is going to keep you warm for that long???
but the tree blocks back some wind and you bring the basket toward you and curl into a ball hoping the storm will pass,,,,,,,,but an hour goes by and you’ve resulted to shivering,,,,the snow and wind making everything more cold
and before you know it you’re too weak to stand,,,,,,and the last thing you remember before you shut your eyes is the sound of a howl,,,,,,,,,
seokjin can tell you’re not a hunter, mostly because you aren’t carrying any kind of weapon and also,,,,,,you don’t smell the way hunters smell
that and jjanggu keeps sniffing around the basket clutched in your frozen hands and wolves don’t like the smell of gunpowder,,,,,,,so whatever is in there must intrigue a wolf
but ,,,,,,,, should he help you? seokjin can tell by the way your shoulders are shaking and the way your lips are turning a bit pale,,,,,that you’re going to pass out for good if you don’t get warm soon
and helping a human,,,,,,,,unheard of,,,,but,,,,,,,letting someone harmless die??
seokjin wraps his arms under your shoulders, nudging your legs so you uncurl from your ball and he can get a grip under your knees and he carries you off to a secluded cave, starting a fire and laying you carefully down beside it to defrost
before seokjin can stop him jjanggu lays down behind you and instinctively, you roll over into the warm fur
you’re still like semi-conscious but the warm big body is so inviting,,,,,tbh if you were fully awake you’d probably be like w O L F and run for your life
but you’re like ??? this is probably a blanket oh it’s breathing oh well whatever
and jjanggu is looking at you curiously and seokjin is like “don’t let them get too comfortable.”
but jjanggu just closes their eyes and seokjin sits opposite the fire
until he reaches over for the basket he’d managed to get from your clenched hands and he’s like “let’s see what a murderous human carries around”
but when he opens the flap, all he sees are an assortment of flowers and twigs and confused he’s like ???? is this what humans eat??????
and after a while you’re warm enough to be fully awake and you sit up, touching the warm fluffy thing in front of you and you’re like hmmmm i don’t have a dog,,,,,
but then you see that this is not a dog it’s too big to be a dog and you’re like ????? so you let out a small shout and jump up, almost falling over yourself as jjanggu gets up surprised by the sound
and you’re looking up at this wolf,,,,,,this huge wolf,,,,
and your knees almost give in because oh gOD you’re going to DIE
but then you feel a hand on your shoulder and you turn
and ,,,,,,,,,ok you must ALREADY be dead because the person in front of you,,,,has the face of an angel
a Literal Angel ,,,, and you blink rapidly until you manage to ask “am - am i dead?”
and seokjin snorts and is like “no, i saved you from dying.”
you’re not fully convinced but you just swallow and without turning around you’re like “i,,,,is,,,,is that,,,you,,,your pet???” you point to jjanggu without looking and seokjin laughs out loud
and goes “pet? what is that? he’s my brother.”
and it takes you a moment because???? brother???? is this angelic looking man ok ??? but then you notice that unlike people back in your town this man is wearing a fur cape over a bare chest,,, scratches and scars litter the slope of his neck,,,red marks ring around his fingers,,,,and he’s not wearing boots. the only thing on him is that cape, worn out looking pants, and an arrangement of bracelets that look like they’ve been woven from twigs and animal teeth
and you’re like,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, is he,,,,,,,,, a spirit of the forest?
but before you can ask the wolf nudges you in the back with its nose and you almost jump out of your skin but turn and try, in the best gentle voice u can muster up, to say hi
and jjanggu, like the big pup he really is, flicks his ears and tilts his head to look at you and you’re like kgfhoerl ,,,,,pls don’t eat me,,,,,
seokjin on the other hand is glad you’re awake, he picks up your basket of flowers and drops it in your hands and is like “let’s go. ill get you back onto the forest path so you can go home.”
and that’s how you end up walking in the snow, watching as this unearthly looking boy is padding through the snow with absolutely no shoes and a ???? big wolf keeps sniffing curiously at your coat pockets
and once you see the path up ahead seokjin stops walking and he’s like motioning with his hand for you to go
and you’re like about to, but you turn to him and bow slightly unsure of how exactly to say thank you for saving my life to a forest fairy???? spirit?? whatever he is
and then you dig around in your pockets, pulling out a bit of a squashed foil you unwrap it to pull out two sweet potatoes you’d brought along to eat while you were picking flowers and seokjin goes “it’s fine, i won’t eat them”
but you’re not looking at him anymore, you’re offering the sweet potato to jjanggu who happily laps them up out of your hand and seokjin is like “jjANGGU don’t.”
but the wolf isn’t listening as he nuzzles your palm in thanks and you giggle because ok,,,,,,,,,,,,,cute
and seokjin clears his throat like “jjanggu says thanks, but you should go. night is coming.”
and you nod, agreeing as you say goodbye you go “maybe ill see you two again?”
and seokjin kind of bites his lip and shakes his head, but jjanggu’s tail wags happily and with that you set off home
and when you get to your flowershop, you’re grinning at your basket of flowers as you unpack them and you don’t even bother telling your assistant why you came home so late
but after you let them go home, you can’t help but keep thinking about seokjin and jjanggu
and a couple of weeks pass, the winter gets worse but soon enough the snow is melting as the sun gets more warm
and you need to go back out into the forest to pick some more wildflowers for your shop
you make sure to pack a couple of bags of different berries,,,,,,,for yourself but also in case you bump into the two who saved you back then
and as you’re walking up the forest path,,,,, checking the dirt and melting snow for big paw prints
you hear something rustle in the bushes nearby and you think it’s like a squirrel or something but then you hear it,,,,,,,,,a voice,,,,,,,,
“……jjanggu no don’t - where are you going-”
and with that you see a big wolf push aside the leaves and come up to you, ears twitching and his nose sniffing your face as you laugh instead of clamming up like any other normal person would
and with a gentle pet on the head you’re like “ahh, you remember me?”
and jjanggu starts sniffing around your basket and you’re laughing because “yes, yes i have a present!”
and you pull out the bags of berries and sprinkle them into your palm to feed the big wolf
and it’s so magical???? because when in your life do you think you could feed such a strong, beautiful animal like this
but seokjin appears behind him, frowning and he’s like “don’t feed him like that. he’s a wild animal he shouldn’t be hand-”
and you rummage around in your basket and drop a bag of berries in seokjin’s hand with a smile because you’re like “mhmm, wolves like berries so you probably like them to? as their,,,,,brother?”
seokjin opens the bag and corrects you, “keeper. but also brother. but call me keeper of the wolves.”
and you’re like “can’t i just call you seokjin?”
with a strawberry half hanging out of his mouth seokjin kind of turns a bit red because no one has ever actually called him by his name,,,,,the keepers only refer to him as ‘keeper of the wolf’ since he’s not a friendly basis with him and obviously wolves can’t speak
so it’s a little,,,,,,surprising to hear you say it
but he doesn’t answer, he just keeps eating and you smile and pet jjanggu on the head
and you’re like “do you by any chance know where i could pick some good flowers?” and seokjin tells you that the best ones are off the forest trail
and you’re like “great! you guys can take me right?”
once again seokjin gives you a kind of suspicious look, but you’re like looking at him with hopeful eyes and well,,,,,,,,,,
you’re not a hunter,,,,,,,and jjanggu likes you,,,,,,,,,,,and you brought them food,,,,,,,,,but,,,,,,,,,
it’s too late though, because you’re walking through the bushes already - jjanggu trotting behind you and seokjin is like “….fine we can take you.”
and he shows you through this big clearing and then near a small stream and over a makeshift bridge made of fallen trees
to this beautiful field, full of untouched nature and seokjin stops you before you can run off and pick whatever you like
and he’s like “don’t take more than you need.” and you nod eagerly and promise
and seokjin watches you while leaning on jjanggu as you frolic around, not necessarily picking too many flowers, but making notes about the ones you find in a small journal and taking samples into your basket
and seokjin sees how,,,,,,careful you are with nature
how you don’t just tear the flower from the ground cruelly pulling out the roots and ripping off leaves. no you gently pluck only two or three.
even small animals, that are usually fearful of human presence don’t mind you and are only startled when they see jjanggu
the wind blows through your hair and your smell wafts over ,,,,,,, and seokjin is totally,,,,,,,,,,,staring at you
and jjanggu literally has to swat at him with a paw to get him to snap out of it
and seokjin is like “huh- what jjanggu?” and the wolf just looks over at you and back at seokjin and seokjin is like
“,,,,,,,,,,,,no they’re a human you know i would never- hey don’t give me that look.”
but jjanggu just starts off running to your side of the field leaving seokjin alone to watch as the wolf playfully nudges at your shoulder and flops down like some kind of big domesticated puppy to watch you write notes about the flowers
and ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,god he can’t believe it but he feels safe. he feels safe seeing you so close to jjanggu. having you here in the forest. he can tell you have no bad intentions
and when again you have to say goodbye, seokjin dropping you off at the trail you promise that you’ll comeback soon and that they have to promise back that they’ll come out and hang out with you
and seokjin is like “eh we’ll see-” but jjanggu puts his nose in your basket and you laugh and say you’ll bring snacks the next time to- don’t worry!!
and as you disappear down the trail back to the town seokjin pushes jjanggu playfully and is like “stop begging for food. you’re a wolf you can hunt.” and jjanggu just runs off a head
and seokjin sighs, looking over his shoulder to see your silhouette gone
when you go back to the forest, it’s early spring and it’s much warmer and you call out jjanggu and seokjin’s name when you get deep enough into the forest
and you hear a rustling and seconds later jjanggu is out of the leaves again, giving you a big kiss with his tongue that almost knocks you over
and seokjin drops down from a nearby tree
and both of them are staring at your basket and you laugh because they both look like hungry puppies
and you pull out the berries, much more this time and jjanggu practically gobbles the whole thing down and you pass seokjin a bag, but point out that you added some pieces of cake along with the fruit for him
and seokjin doesn’t blush,,,,,,well he does but he will not admit it
but as the two are eating you’re like “i have another gift!!” and you pull out from your basket a flower crown you made in your spare time,,,,,,it’s large you tried to estimate how big jjanggu’s head was by making it three times the size of a normal crown
and when you put it over the wolf’s head it hangs off his one ear a bit sloppily, but,,,,,,,,,it’s cute and makes you giggle (jjanggu keeps trying to get his tongue up to reach it but he can’t)
and then you turn to seokjin and pull out another flower crown
and you smile and ask if you can put it on him and seokjin,,,,,,,seokjin is like “what is this?”
and you’re like “it’s something pretty, you know like the bracelets you wear? i made it myself!”
and seokjin is a little hesitant, but you’re like “don’t worry -it’s just flowers !!” and you tippy-toe to place it atop his head
and wow,,,,,,he looks like a prince,,,,,,,,,,like an actual prince not given the shabby pants and scars and dirt smudges that all come with living in the forest
and you clap your hands and you’re like “king jjanggu and prince seokjin!”
and seokjin actually goes pretty red this time and he’s like “prince,,,,,,,,,,,why am i not the king?”
and you grin and pet jjanggu’s nose and jokingly go “because i like jjanggu more!~”
and seokjin is like HEY how can you not like this beautiful face,,,,,,even humans know im gorgeous,,,,,,
and you nod, brushing your other hand over seokjin’s cheek and you’re like “right, you’re the most handsome person ive ever seen,,,,,,,,,,well not person,,,,,,,wolf? fairy?”
and seokjin ,,,,,,,,like at the word handsome he feels his heart beat almost out of his chest,,,,,,,,,,,and your hand is still warm against his skin
and he turns his face and he’s like ,,,,,,,,trying to hide his eyes
but when you let go, he grabs your wrist carefully and you’re like hm? and seokjin swallows and he’s like “i don’t know, how to say a human thank you but ?”
and he leans over and gives the corner of your lip a little lick and you jump back like ????? omg
and he’s like “wolves,,,,,,,,,that like each other clean each others fur sometimes,,,,,,i,,,,,,,,,uh,,,,,,,,,,,”
and you look at him and giggle and seokjin is like DONT laugh,,,,,,but you’re like “it’s fine, but let me teach you the human way ok?”
and seokjin nods and this time you take his cheeks in both your hands and bring your lips up to brush against his
and when you pull back seokjin blinks but then,,,,,,,
presses his mouth to yours again and then,,,,,,,,
“you taste like strawberries.” and you’re like “i think that’s because you just ate some.” and seokjin is like OH,,,,,,,,,can i do that again? and you’re like kiss me? and he’s like ??? kiss ?? lick?? and you’re like akghedf
jjanggu nudges the two of you though like he’s encouraging you to definitely definitely kiss again.
Shoutout to facebook for making me look at pictures from like 5 years ago when my friends and I got front row tickets to a community production of RENT and everyone else in the audience were offended old people who left at intermission so we went out of our way to be the most enthusiastic crowd members in history which lead to the actors getting obsessed with us and talking to us in between scenes and winking at us during the songs and then when we wanted pictures with the cast Benny’s actor came over and personally thanked us for reminding him why he wanted to become an actor
