Summary: Arthur broke up with a man he was still in love with and moved to London just after his thirtieth birthday. Five years later, he’s still madly in love with the same man; who has just recently moved into the same apartment building. Will they rekindle their lost love, or are they doomed to repeat the past? Pairing: USUK Word count: 3,281 Prompt from empressvegah. A/N: Thank you so much for the request! Anyone feel free to request a fic from me and point out any grammar/spelling mistakes!
“Yo! Hold that door, dude!”
Arthur jumped, surprised by the sudden yell, and even more at the realization that it was directed at him. Jumping forward, he placed a hand on the rapidly closing elevator door and watched as it retracted after making contact with his open palm. Relieved, he looked up to find the source of the yell… Only to wish he hadn’t.
His heart leapt into his throat at the mere sight of the man running toward him, all beautiful golden-blonde hair and perfect, bright blue eyes. Arthur’s eyes bulged, every coherent thought leaving his head to be replaced by shit shit shit that’s Alfred that’s the man I fell in love with and the man I left and ohmygod he’s getting into the elevator shit shit shit!
omg so i got this ask like 2 weeks ago or something, and this took hours of intense listening and deep thought and introspection, and then i went away to sydney for like 4 days and then i forgot about it. anyway, it pained me deeply to have to leave a couple out but here we go (in no real particular order… i think)
*pointing to the sky* LET THE VOICE OF LOVE TAKE YOU HIGHER~
i love this OP so much. like, sooooo so much. all jojo OP’s are incredibly high quality affairs, but the first time i heard great days i literally felt like my life was changing, like i was having some kind of religious experience. it was just that good. it’s so upbeat, it radiates warmth and optimism, and it makes me feel so good to listen to, and that combined with the stylish and evocative visuals makes this hands down my favourite jojo OP, and one of my favourite anime OP’s of all time.
ambiguous - Kill la Kill (OP 2)
if i absolutely had to pick a favourite anime, id probably say kill la kill. it’s just so special to me. it’s so cool and wild and silly and over the top and so much fun. watching it each week is still to this day the most fun i’ve ever had watching an anime, and this OP is just such a banger. that part with ryuko and satsuki fighting, sending hundreds of one-star students flying everywhere, and eventually creating the logo out of debris and blood from their fight is one of the coolest title drops ive ever seen in an anime OP. this OP got me hyped up every time. still does.
oh my god i love this song. this song manages to encapsulate the tone, feel, and spirit of the series i love so much so perfectly, it actually blows me away. i really like the visuals too, theyre quite simple but effective, but the song is what really stands out to me here imo. OP’s will come and go as the series continues but in my heart Peace Sign will forever be THE theme of My Hero Academia. i dont have much else to say about it. this song fucking rules.
LAY YOUR HANDS ON ME - Kiznaiver
this anime ended up being only Okay in the end, tbh, tho i definitely enjoyed it. id give it like maybe a 7/10 overall. but holy moly, that OP tho!! this song is AMAZINGand idk how to even describe all the feelings it stirs within me, and combined with the vibrant, kaleidoscopic visuals, this OP is simply breathtaking imo. 7/10 anime, 11/10 OP.
Hyadain no Kakakata Kataomoi/Joujou Yuujou - Nichijou
ok im cheating by including both nichijou OP’s in the one slot but u know what i DONT EVEN GIVE A CARE. nichijou is honestly the best anime ever made and it deserves it. i couldnt possibly separate its two OP’s, they’re a package deal tbh and they’re both the toppest of top tier. nichijou is love, nichijou is life.
Flyers - Death Parade
EVERYBODY, PUT YOUR HANDS UP, SAA FLYIN’, TSUBASA NI NARE
holy hell this song is a bop. a show this sad had no business bopping this hard in the OP and yet it does and its fantastic. enough said, really.
Soundscape - Hibike! Euphonium (2nd season)
who expected such a down-to-earth drama abt a high school concert band would have such an absolute banger of an OP?? the first season of eupho was one of my favourite animes of 2015, so to have the highly anticipated 2nd season a year later kick off with such a fun, high energy OP just got me so dang excited!! also worth mentioning is at the beginning of the season, the OP is presented mostly in black and white, but after they win the competition and get to move onto nationals at the end of ep 5, it gets changed in the next episode onward to be completely in full, vibrant, beautiful kyoani colour, and it just made me so !!!!… ya. good stuff.
99 - Mob Psycho 100
no jokes this might actually be the best OP ever made tbh. it’s a 100% fucking masterpiece in every way. going into detail abt everything that makes this one so good would make this post like 3 times longer than it already is. its JUST THAT GOOD.
THE HERO!! -One Punch Man
i really dont have much to say abt this one other than it’s hands down one of the most bangerest bangers of all time. i know it, you know it, we all know it. one punch man is getting a 2nd season, and i simply cannot fathom it having an OP better than this. they may as well just reuse it instead of trying to live up to it.
Sorairo Days - Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
Mark my words. This drill will open a hole in the universe, and that hole will become a path for those behind us! The dreams of those who have fallen; the hopes of those who will follow! These two sets of dreams weave together into a double helix, drill a path towards tomorrow! That’s Tengen Toppa! That’s Gurren Lagann!! My drill is the drill THAT CREATES THE HEAVENS!!!
and then the chorus kicks in!! chills of hype every time!! i can’t believe i almost forgot to include this one, despite being so iconic of my life and having such fond memories of it.
and there u have it. if you’ve been following me long enough or just know me well enough, there’s probably basically ZERO surprises here lolol, but shrugs, y’know?? i’m pretty transparent abt what i like LOL.
