MC as a Birthday Present ♡

Yoosung 

  • (March 12th)
  • Everyone had been busy on his birthday…except you
  • (He was quite bittersweet about it. He was happy to spend time with you but… but… why didn’t anyone make time for him on his birthday?!?!)
  • So you decided to take him out to a LOLOL con, surprising him with tickets– WHICH WERE SUPPOSED TO BE SOLD OUT, SO HE WAS REALLY SHOCKED
  • He almost cried tears of joy when you showed him the tickets upon meeting up, and jumped to hug you reaaaaally tightly
  • …only to realize what he was doing
  • “Wahhh!!! I’m so sorry, MC, I got a bit too excited…” he apologized, his cheeks so red that it rivaled Seven’s hair. He inched away from you, feeling ashamed of himself
  • After all, he was a strong believer in only acting intimately with your significant other!! More importantly… he really, really liked you… It was kinda embarrassing to act so bold…
  • But you laughed it off, and dragged him by the hand to lead him into the convention center
  • There was SO MUCH MERCH
  • all of which he couldn’t buy
  • He hadn’t been prepared for this, after all…
  • You noticed his teary eyes as he stared hopelessly at everything… and ended up buying him a few charms
  • He also spent about half an hour following cosplayers of his favourite character, and you had to push him towards them
  • Needless to say, it wasted a lot of time but hey, whatever, it’s his birthday
  • When it was time to go home, he honestly didn’t wanna go back… He wanted to spend more time with you. Nervously, he asked, “H-hey, MC… wanna come over to my place? B-BUT NOT FOR ANYTHING BAD, it’s just getting late and you shouldn’t go home alone… a-and I want to spend more time with you…”
  • The last of his words came out as a whisper, his hands covering his cheeks in embarrassment
  • He asked so cutely though. Of course you followed him home :D
  • When you reached the apartment, though, he couldn’t unlock the door for some reason, so he ended up asking you to try. As you did, he began to say, “Uhm, thank you for today. It’s really the best gift I’ve ever received…”
  • You paused in your movement, a small laugh escaping your lips. “But that’s not even my gift! Jumin got the tickets… Hmm, I do feel bad I couldn’t properly prepare a present, but…”
  • You took out a gift-wrapping bow and placed it on your head. “But you could have me instead~?” you joked
  • His heart was going W I L D, gosh what are you doing to this poor boy!?!
  • His eyes narrowed with determination as he grasped at your shoulder. “I’d want you,” he said quietly. “That would be the best gift in the worl–”
  • “HEY, HANDS OFF!” The door flung open, revealing a mad, glaring Zen. “I know it’s your birthday, but there’s a limit to how selfish you can be!”
  • Yoosung gaped at the interior of his apartment, decorated with streamers and banners and presents. Jaehee offered a sheepish smile, “Surprise? Well… Zen kind of ruined it…”
  • Yoosung quickly removed his hand from your shoulder, already regretting his bold actions from before. “I-I WASN’T DOING ANYTHING TO MC!!”
  • With an irritated look, Zen crossed his arms intimidatingly, his muscles bulging, a sadistic smile upon his face. “I think it’s time for some birthday punches, don’t you?”

Zen

  • (April 1st)
  • “Do they seriously think we don’t notice them?” Zen sighed, pressing his face into his hands. “Grrr, I thought I’d finally be able to have some alone time with you…”
  • You tilted your head, “Alone time…?”
  • His cheeks flushed red as he tried to cover up his mistake, “N-no! But I mean, it’s just, I’ve hung out with everyone else separately before and uhm, I was just excited to hang out with the new member too?” Despite his acting skills, he found it difficult to act and well, essentially lie, to you…
  • “It’s okay, we can still do whatever you had planned… I’m sure they’ll tire of us soon,” you offered a gentle smile, easing him of his worries. He nodded in consideration of that, and returned the smile.
  • Unfortunately for the both of you, they didn’t get tired of you. In fact, they had somehow managed to prank Zen at every street you guys crossed…
  • There was an entire street that suddenly advertised cats and had cat fur outfits on display, making Zen sneeze the entire time… then there were bouquets of flowers thrown at Zen which wasn’t bad, except that they were wrapped with catnip which attracted seemingly HUNDREDS of cats??! …not to mention random flour flying through the air, landing near the two of you…
  • “They’re such children!” Zen fumed, narrowing his eyes. Despite the glare, he still looked handsome, captivating all the women (and even men) around him. Whispers spread amongst the crowd, and there was suddenly a mob sent after them after someone screamed “It’s Zen the actor!!”
  • (run omg)
  • You spent the entire day running from pranks and fans, finally taking a break in a dark alleyway… wait, dark? The two of you stared up at the stars overhead. Well, that was a birthday wasted.
  • Zen plopped on a trashcan, sighing heavily. “I’m sorry you had to go through that because of me… It must’ve been really annoying for you… ugh, and this had to happen even after you so graciously offered me your entire day to spend with me. I’m so sorry…”
  • He looked so guilty even though it wasn’t his fault, you felt your heart aching for him. Pranks like this happened year after year, the pranks of April Fool’s Day preceding birthday wishes.
  • “Cheer up, Zen! I don’t really have anything to give you right now, but… you can do anything you want with me!” you beamed.
  • He stammered, “W-wait, anything I want…?”
  • Control the beast. Control the beast. COntrolcontrolcontrolcontr-
  • “Yep! If you want someone to clean up your house- since you live alone, or tend to your every need for a day, I’m here!” you said with determination, pointing to yourself.
  • Zen let out a deep breath. Haha, riiight…
  • He buried his face into his hands. Goddammit, you were just too cute.

Jaehee

  • (December 28th)
  • She hadn’t expected anyone to do anything for her birthday O_O
  • “MC, th-thank you for doing this,” she murmured softly, cheeks flushing a light pink as she gazed at you with nothing but gratefulness in her eyes (much to your disappointment, that is)
  • “You don’t have to thank me~” you grinned, swinging an arm around her cheekily. “I love you after  all~”
  • She brought a hand to her lips as she let out a soft chuckle, murmuring to herself quietly, “So this is what it’s like having a best friend… It’s nice to be cared for.”
  • Choosing not to comment on that, you laced your fingers through hers, gently tugging at her hand to drag her towards the train station. “Come on!” you exclaimed with excitement
  • The two of you sat next to each other on the train, your head resting on her shoulder as you shared your music with her, the pair of earbuds connecting the both of you. The train moved quickly towards the mountains, every bump on the tracks causing the two of you to press closer to each other. Although you didn’t mind, a light blush coloured Jaehee’s cheeks
  • She shyly stared at your reflection in the window, watching as you gradually nodded off. She gently stroked your hair, soothing you to sleep…
  • You woke up just in time for your stop, pouting at Jaehee for not waking you up earlier. The two of you arrived near the peak of a mountain just as the sun began to set. 
  • “Waaaahhh, I lost so many hours of being able to talk to you by falling asleep!! Why didn’t you wake me?! I wanted to spend all of your birthday with youuuu…” you groaned. Your cute antics made her laugh, and you found yourself smiling with her, noticing how delighted she looked.
  • Her soft, gentle gaze made you blush a bit, and you quietly walked beside her on the mountain trail. It was a silent walk, albeit not uncomfortable. Soon, you neared the warm red-orange hues of the sun, finding an opening behind the trees.
  • From where the two of you stood, you could see all the way below the mountain… the surrounding forest of colourful leaves, the stream flowing into the glacial lake… all under a pinkish-purple sky with rays of light raining upon the view.
  • It was mesmerizing, and you reached for her hand, grasping it tightly as you admired the natural scenery together…
  • While it only lasted a few minutes, it had been a beautiful experience for both of you.
  • “Thank you, MC… It’s really nice to see something like this, especially since I’m cooped up in the office most of my days. Although, it does make me appreciate today even more… I’m glad I got to experience it with you. Oh… you don’t happen to have another gift, do you? Haha, I feel like I’ve already received so much from you,” Jaehee murmured, blushing slightly.
  • You fidgeted with your fingers, then pointed at the ribbon in your hair. “I actually wore this b-because I don’t really have a gift… all I can offer is myself…” 
  • Although she stared at you with a lost expression, inside, her heart was H A M M E R I N G. Even more than it does for Zen!!
  • Her fingers trembling, she gently pulled you into a hug, thinking to herself, ‘MC’s too cute and innocent… oh, I really don’t want anyone else to see her like this… I just… want her all to myself…’

Jumin

  • (October 5th)
  • Why.
  • The one word repeated itself in your mind over and over again like a mantra, beads of sweat rolling down your face as you tried to maintain a smile.
  • There you were, sitting across from none other than Jumin Han in a high-class… EMPTY banquet hall. He had reserved the entire place just for the two of you.
  • “J-Jumin… today is your birthday… shouldn’t I be treating you?” you asked him nervously, eyes shifting as you felt awkward in the empty vicinity.
  • He cocked his head in confusion, “Am I not allowed to take you out somewhere of my choosing on my birthday?” (sigh, he just doesn’t know how to express that he wants to spend time with you)
  • “Well… when you put it like that…” you frowned, still feeling  extremely awkward and guilty.
  • “Then there’s no problem, is there?” he chuckled in amusement, a brief twinkle in his eyes.
  • Luckily for you, the tension simmered down to nothing as the hours stretched on and the conversation flowed through.
  • The sky was still a fair azure blue when the two of you stepped out, despite the nearing autumn. “Jumin, I still don’t think it’s right that you’re treating me when it’s your birthday… Let me make it up to you, pretty please?” you jut out your lower lip slightly, staring up at him with pleading eyes.
  • “Hm… what do you have in mind?”
  • You smiled in relief, then instructed Driver Kim where to go in whispers, making sure Jumin wouldn’t find out. “Hehe~ It’ll be a quick drive. Put this on, I don’t want you to find out where we’re headed!” You handed him a black blindfold, and his breath hitched.
  • ‘What I wouldn’t give to tie that around MC’s eyes and—‘ he caught himself, shaking off the perverse thought. Instead, he offered a strained smile as he let MC put it on him, shivering slightly from the feeling of her fingers in his hair.
  • The duration of the ride was fairly quiet, as you kept whispering details of the location to Driver Kim. When you led Jumin out of the car, laughter and music found its way to his ears. He furrowed his eyebrows, not quite recognizing these sounds. You finally removed the blindfold from his eyes, allowing him to see the festival you’d brought him to.
  • His eyes widened, “This is…?”
  • “A fireworks festival to celebrate the full moon! It lasts the whole week, and I’m just glad I could bring you here… I just thought it’d be nice to try something new,” you explained, blushing shyly at the end.
  • Jumin felt an overwhelming adoration for you welling up in his chest. He had never been to a (commoner’s) festival before… let alone celebrate his birthday in any other way than a fancy dinner…
  • As excited as you were to drag him around the booths, he ended up dragging you around, his curiosity getting the best of him as he took interest in each stall, feeling amazed by everything.
  • …It was almost sad to see that, by the end of the festival, he still hadn’t won a single thing from any of the game booths. His lips were curled into a permanent pout, eyebrows furrowed in determination to shoot at the stuffed cat.
  • BAM!
  • His mock-bullet flew towards the cat! …and knocked off its bow instead.
  • The old man managing the stall shook his head in pity, “You’ve got some terrible aim there, young lad… Tell ya what, I’ll just give this bow to you. Try again next time, buddy.”
  • Jumin stared at the bow with a frown, wondering what the hell he was even supposed to do with it. He turned his back on it, stomping off like a kid. (Zen: hah, what a sore loser!)
  • You chased after him, grabbing the bow before you left. He seemed to be heading back to the car where Driver Kim was waiting, and you grabbed his arm before he crossed the road. “Jumiiin, it’s the first thing you’ve won from a festival, shouldn’t you cherish it more?”
  • He scoffed, “I have no use for it. Keep it.”
  • “Hmmm. Theeen, since I don’t have a gift for you today…” You clipped the bow to the front of your shirt. “You could have me instead? Hahaha~ Just kiddi-”
  • His face had neared yours in the middle of your sentence, eyes dark with desire at your words.
  • “Don’t make promises you can’t keep, MC…” he said huskily, staring into your eyes like he was about to devour you.
  • Your cheeks flushed red at his words, backing away slightly. At that moment, Driver Kim pulled up to the curb and you just L EA PED inside.
  • Startled, Jumin stares after you, bursting out into laughter. Secretly, he thought to himself, ‘MC never fails to amuse me… If she was mine… would we able to spend time like this all the time? Hm.’

Seven

  • (June 11th)
  • “No.”
  • “Yes.”
  • “I said NO, dammit, don’t get another duck!”
  • Seven pouted as he turned his head towards you, his hands still operating the claw machine. “But MC, all of the prizes are just sooo cute!!”
  • “There’s no difference,” you deadpanned.
  • He gasped, HORRIFIED that you would say that! “This one is smiling! And this one has sunglasses! And this one has its tongue sticking out… and this one has a wink… What do you mean, there’s no difference? I’m disappointed in you, MC, tsk tsk.”
  • Before you could even begin to protest, he winked, “Besides, it’s MY birthday after all. And you’re my slave for the day~”
  • At that, you shut up. How did this happen again?
  • Ah, right. It all started when you had jokingly—ahem, let me say it louder for the redhead in the back, JOKINGLY said that you’d be Seven’s birthday gift.
  • -Flashback-
  • Your bedroom door swung open and CRASHED to the floor, awaking you immediately. “GoOd morning, MC, it’s my BIRTHDAY!” Seven yelled, blowing into a toy trumpet as he waltzed around your room. It was 7 in the morning. jfc seven, NO.
  • Not long after you got dressed, he began pestering you for a gift. Truth to be told, you had no idea that it was his birthday, so you didn’t have anything prepared… (He’s a hacker, he keeps all his personal info to himself! It honestly wasn’t your fault)
  • You rolled your eyes, taking a red pen and drawing a ribbon on your wrist. “Well, you could always have me as your present instead…”
  • His eyes shone, and you already regretted letting those words leave your mouth.
  • Back to present time, you were walking around the arcade, holding all of Seven’s prizes in large bags… 
  • Grumbling, you muttered, “I still don’t know why I have to do this…”
  • He paused in his steps, cocking his head to face you as he smirked, “Would you have preferred to be a different kind of slave for me, hmm, MC~?”
  • Cue the jaw dropping.
  • And the blush ;)

Snowbound

Summary: Derek and Stiles + a cabin in Michigan + a lot of snow = Pining

Notes: This post made me want to write a fic that had snowed in, bed sharing, and mutual pining. Though I am by no means claiming that this is a god-tier fic! (On AO3)


“What the hell?” Stiles grumbles, watching the snow fall outside the window. It’s very beautiful, but also very unwanted. “It’s April.”

“Sometimes it snows until May here,” Derek says, and Stiles scowls.

“Well, if this trip is good for anything, it’s for showing me that Michigan is an awful place,” he huffs. “So much for having fun up here. I wanted to see the Mystery Spot!”

“The Mystery Spot is pretty lame,” Derek says, sitting on the couch next to him. “It’s just a crooked building on a hill.”

Scott Borchetta interview with Alan Cross for Canadian Music Week (April 2017)

EXCERPTS ABOUT TAYLOR

AC: [talking about recognizing a special character] If you come into contact with a true superstar and there is a charisma that comes off of them effortlessly, the kind of person when they walk into the room and your back is to the door - you know they’re in the room…
SB: Yeah, I always say that colors in the room change, like if Steven Tyler walked in right now you’d be going […starts turning around…], Steven is here, okay, I got it… because it’s just that thing. And I’m sure any of you can remember a moment, whether you got to meet Mick Jagger or Taylor, and you just went: “WOW! There’s a lot more juice in this person than everybody else”.


AC: So you were gonna build “Big Machine” the way you thought a record label needed to be built, from ground up. And you had no office, no money, no staff, you had nothing except your eye on this 14-year-old girl. You were scouting this 14-year-old talent?
SB: Yeah, so the irony is I get a package, this is an October 2004 and my deal with Universal goes through September 2005, so I get Taylor’s package in October and I meet her November 2nd 2004, I was blown away… and I go to see her two nights later at the Bluebird Cafe, go to meet the family and I’m just completely knocked out by her being, how smart she was at 15-years-old, how incredible the songs were. And then I go back for a second meeting and say: “If you wanna be signed at Universal I will introduce you to the executives and try to help you get signed, but you need to know something - I’m leaving in a year, I’m gonna start my own label, don’t know what it’s called but I can make you one promise tonight - when I start it, you have a deal with me”. And they looked at me and  just kinda went […motions a blank stare…]. They go: “Wow, we finally found someone who gets her and he’s crazy”. So couple weeks later, Taylor had just turned 15, and she called me herself and said: “Hey, just wanna let you know I’ve made up my mind and I’m waiting for you”. And it wasn’t from a manager, wasn’t from a parent, and I said: “Well, you’ve made my day”.
AC: Why do you think she made that decision?
SB: I think because she have had a deal at RCA priors, she had a development deal and they did not believe in her songs and they were trying to get her to work with other songwriters, different producers and they didn’t feel that they understood her and I was immediately fascinated with her songs. And I didn’t realize it back then but, when she came into the office, she literally came into Universal and she played me a song, a second song, and for those of you who know Taylor’s music, the second song was “Picture To Burn” and I said that’s a hit song. And I think from that moment she thinks: “Okay, I think this guy gets me and understands my songs”. I’ve never once brought up to her idea of doing an outside song. So she know that I believe… at her being she’s a songwriter, yes - incredible at everything else, but in her being, the most important thing and 50 years from now when you look back at this moment they’ll go - oh, the Michelangelo of the moment was Taylor Swift.

April fools!

Those two words keep playing in your head over and over again. You’re an idiot. You are a self proclaimed idiot. Jokes on you this time. 

You turn to your side and look at your boyfriend sleeping right next to you. Ugh. He’s perfect even when he’s sleeping and here you are trying to not to work yourself into an anxiety attack over your stupid mistake. 

I’m an idiot. Who the fuck can’t tell their boyfriend that the joke you proclaimed as an April Fool’s prank is the truth?

It’s not like you planned for your joke to be a joke. You just found out on April Fool’s day.  That little blue stick does not lie. Nor did the ten others you made Wanda go get you and swear on her life that she would not tell anyone about what is going on with you or…rather in you. 

And when you went to tell Bucky, Bucky, the man with the steel blue eyes and the wicked smile and the love of your life that you are pregnant,  p r e g n a n t, you froze. You panicked. And his shocked expression did not make you feel any better so you thought quick and told Bucky it was a joke and was crushed when he sighed in relief. 

You look over Bucky now,  to glance at the clock on your bedside table. 12:01. It’s officially April 2nd. It’s no longer April Fool’s. You’re still pregnant. It’s not a joke. It’s April 2nd, and you’re still pregnant. 

“Babe as much as I love to keep you up at night, why are you awake?” You flinch as you glance at Bucky. He peers at you with one eye open and furrows his brows. 

Oh fuck, oh fuck. He’s awake. fuck. fuck. fuck. 

I swear it’s nothing babe, just going over the mission details for tomorrow in my head” blabbering it out like an idiot that you are and turning to your side only to bury your face into the pillow and hope to God that Bucky does not feel you try to avoid the subject.

“You know, I would believe you if you haven’t been awake and fidgeting for the last three hours” Bucky chuckles and pulls you closer. 

“Talk to me doll, what’s on your mind?” Bucky turns you over and you peer up at him. You search your mind for the right words. 

Hey Buck, remember that time after the mission when the adrenaline was getting to us and we got back to the jet and I tackled you and you took my pant– or that time during Tony’s party last month when you slid your fingers under my dress– or two weeks ago in the shower when you took me up against the wall and—

“Babe I can practically see you thinking but I need words.” He smirked as he leans closer into you, your foreheads are touching at this point. 

“So funny story…” you begin and you look up once again into those eyes. 

I’m fucked. Well we fucked. And now you’re fucked. Because we fucked. And we made a baby. I’m pregnant. Jokes on you and me. Oh shit.

Talk to me doll, you’re starting to worr–” he’s cut off before he can finish the sentence. 

“So I know I told you it was an April Fool’s joke, but I’m pregnant. I’m actually pregnant. And I took about ten tests to make sure I was because who the fuck learns they are pregnant on April Fool’s? And I tried to tell you but then I panicked because you didn’t plan for this, I mean we didn’t plan for this and I saw the relief in your eyes when you heard me say April Fool’s. but Bucky, it’s officially April 2nd, and I’m pregnant. I’m actually pregnant. Please don’t ha–”

This time, you’re the one that’s cut off from your babbling. Bucky’s lips smash into yours and you can’t help but moan at the force. His tongue teases yours a little and you blink your eyes a few times because you are left dazed after a kiss like that. 

“You’re pregnant?” “You’re actually pregnant?” “I’m going to be a Dad?” he whispers as he pulls slightly away from you. 

You stiffen as you come back and hear Bucky’s words. You look at him and you see the biggest smile on his face. 

“I’m pregnant” You say with a little more confidence. Bucky leans back into you.  “I was hoping it wasn’t a joke when you told me yesterday doll, I only looked relieved because I was trying to hide how disappointed I was.”

This time you’re the one who yanks Bucky towards you and in the process he’s on top of you. You reach up and give him a quick kiss before leaning up to his ear. 

“You’re going to be a Daddy, Buck. No April Fool’s joke this time. Happy April 2nd Bucky.” your breath tickling his skin as you trail back to his lips. 

“Happy April 2nd Doll, best non April Fool’s joke ever.” He leans down and joins you into your kiss. 

April Fool’s didn’t turn out so bad.


feelin-good-in-the-inc  asked:

I've been awake for more than 33 hours and I can't sleep after seeing Requiem... I can't stop hearing Mikey's voice and seeing his face when he says "Papa..." and I can't fall asleep...

This show…..this show fucking… is the best cartoon i have ever seen in ages.

Just that finale, those emotions… 

I mean, look at these faces.

Showing so many emotions, and actually hearing these boys, cry, legit sob, this just out does every finale we ever had. And you know what, I hope that season 5 finale, everything can end, happy. For once. These poor kids deserve it.

Seeing as the turtles are now ORPHANS. Yep. They are. and supposedly Leo is supposed to be the eldest and the father of his brothers… HES ONLY SIXTEEN! That cuts deeper than any blade Shredder pitches.

Props to Casey and April though. They tried. Whats strange is, this right here is my favorite scene, the whole emotional stuff that people are crying over, is my definite favorite scene. but yes, his “papa” is haunting, and better then what he said in the Korean version. No language can take place of the English!

Yuri on Ice Fanfic Rec List

Here are some of my favorite YOI fanfics so far! :) This list will be updated often! If you have any suggestions for fics that I can add, feel free to message me. 

Last update: April 23, 2017

My organization is kinda weird and all over the place right now since I’m constantly updating this, but basically it goes from my favorites of all time from each ship, and THEN to the rest of the series, then to the multi-chaptered fics, then to the one-shots.. If that makes sense lol. Sorry. ^-^’;

Also, let me add: I was originally going to list how many chapters each fic has, but some are currently ongoing! Therefore, only the series/fics that are COMPLETE will have the number of chapters listed so that I don’t have to update this every day. :) And another thing: I have fics separated by the main ship. However, many of the Victuuri fanfictions I have listed also have Otayuri on the side as well, so I apologize if some of you don’t really like that too much. Thanks for understanding!

Note: Most of these are explicit rated. ;)

Update: Removed the majority of my “notes” sections, because my wording just bothers me lol.

Words: 186,584

He’s finally here in this lovely and quiet little beach cottage, and the rest of the year seems to stretch out infinitely before him. Time will pass, though, and it will pass faster than he realizes, but in the meantime he will stop worrying about writer’s block and deadlines and not even having the foggiest clue what his next novel’s going to be about, and live.

New York Times-bestselling author Viktor Nikiforov arrives in the sleepy seaside town of Torvill Cove to cure his writer’s block. After encountering local wallflower Yuuri Katsuki at a party, he discovers that this mysterious dark-haired man has a couple secrets up his sleeve.

And Viktor will be damned if he doesn’t find out just what those secrets are.


Victory of the Night by c0rnfl0wer

Rating: Explicit

Type: Series

Part 1- Meet Me By the River:

Chapters: 1

Words: 11,527

Every Kupala Night has come and gone without his attending, but now that Viktor Nikiforov is getting older and taking over the position as leader of his village, he has to start taking his life in a different direction. He wasn’t sure whether he expected anything at all in this way. But when Yuuri catches his wreath, he finds the path he had always longed for.

Historical/Mythology AU based on Slavic mythology and traditions, specifically Kupala Night - a midsummer celebration involving merrymaking in a few different ways.

Part 2- Ivan da Maria:

Chapters: ONGOING

Words: N/A

Rusalka: a living-dead aquatic spirit in folklore that varies in their attitude toward humans.
Navka: a subdivision of the Rusalka, known for its charming cruelty.

Viktor never minded when human civilization built up around him, or when other spirits began sharing the waters with him. He easily dominated every tradition that the centuries presented; that was what he minded. No one wants to be known for tragedy. No one wants to be subjected to loneliness and despair forever. No one wants to drag their beloved one down. Everyone wants a happy ending, even if it isn’t in their nature.

“Ok.” Yuuri smiled as this game of masquerade came to an end, what would happen now, he didn’t know, he would probably die, his family would come after him and try to put a knife in his back or a bullet between his eyes, none of it mattered, because together they would fight, and the rest of the world would finally burn.

“I just want to know more about you,” Viktor responded. “You write so much on your blog and within media, but none of those words are ever about yourself.”

“There’s always something to say.”

In which Victor is at the top of the (criminal) world, and ends up falling for the hot bartender that works at a Giacometti speakeasy.

Alternatively: In which Yuuri is a bartender with a thing for the hot patron which could probably kill him but also wants to have sex with him. To be fair, Yuuri is pretty down to sleep with him too.

But things don’t go as planned, sometimes, and rather than Victor finding someone to warm his bed for a night, he finds Yuuri, who offers him an intimacy and care that he had never thought he’d have. And in turn, Yuuri finds someone achingly lonely but willing to open his heart so they can both be together in a way they had only dreamed of.

Katsuki Yuuri is not a tactile man. Anyone who’s spent a minute with him can tell you that much.

To say that Victor is touchy-feely is the understatement of the century.

So when Victor just stops touching Yuuri, without explanation, without reason, it makes for a painfully jarring experience.

“Okay.”

“–Anything to disengage from the nega–” Viktor stopped, blinking. “Wait, what?”

Yuuri rose back to his feet, moving to stand in front of Viktor. Emotion burned at the edge of his irises, and in the limited light his stare flashed more crimson than brown, “I said, ‘okay’.”

Thursday, November 10th.

It all seemed to happen in slow-motion. While undergoing a mission in Mementos to complete a request, the Phantom Thieves found themselves ensnared by the Reaper. The powerful Shadow had cornered them, thus fighting was their only option. Oracle had warned them of the threat that the Reaper imposed; it was unlike an enemy they had ever faced. It was verily a one-sided confrontation; the Thieves didn’t stand a chance at their current condition.

Joker signaled for the retreat, and Oracle was in the process of analyzing an opportunity for escape. Everyone was already exhausted; those with healing abilities now lacked sufficient stamina due to the Reaper’s vicious and unrelenting attacks.

“Got it! Let’s get outta here!”

The battling Thieves promptly nodded at Oracle’s cry, and most of them managed to stealthily sprint past the formidable Shadow. However, the Reaper abruptly landed a hit on one of two Thieves leading from the rear. Those two were Joker and Crow; the latter slammed to the ground with a grunt of pain, and the Reaper cocked its revolver to deliver the final blow. 

“Damn it. Not like this,” Crow hissed, weakly attempting to uplift himself. He rolled onto his elbows to witness his attacker maliciously floating before him, then he sealed his eyes shut and braced himself for the impact of a bullet. Crow briefly considered using his ‘special ability’, but he sensed that the foe before him had surpassed the realm of chaos and was on an entirely different level, one exclusively unique to the Reaper. 

The thunderous roar of gunfire echoed throughout the corridor, and the Thieves inside the Mona car desperately shielded their ears from the noise. 

However, Crow felt nothing. He slowly opened his auburn eyes, and they widened in shock as the sight before him was unveiled.

It was now Joker that stood before him, with his arms outstretched and a cocky grin plastered on his face. “You owe me,” he muttered before he proceeded to cough up blood. Crow noticed the bullet hole in Joker’s chest; it went clean through, and crimson liquid oozed out of it and dripped on Crow’s pristine white garb. 

“You…” Crow began. “You damn fool! I was aware of your recklessness, but I hadn’t anticipated this much stupidity from you.”

Joker laughed weakly as he clutched his chest. “Some leader I am.” He pivoted to face the towering Shadow behind him. 

“Crow.” The detective glanced at the back of Joker’s head. “You can make it to the car right? Take this back to the others.” He reached into his pocket and tossed a small notebook at Crow. “Read it with them. It’s pretty good.”

“Joker…” With a bit of exertion, Crow stood on his feet and gazed at the back of Joker’s ebony head. His hand tightly constricted around the pocketbook. “So be it,” he snarled, his voice heavy with frustration… and grief.

A damn hero to the very end… he never changes. 

Crow turned on his heel to scramble toward the Mona car. His body was on fire and his muscles were screaming from the previous damage the Reaper inflicted, but he ignored the pain and continued toward the vehicle.

Joker glimpsed behind to ensure that Crow made it safely into the car. Before Crow entered the car, he looked back at Joker. Joker smirked and waved at him, mouthing a final ‘see ya’ before once again diverting his attention toward his opponent. He was slumped over, and a harsh blow from the Reaper brought him to his knees.

Crow clenched his teeth and shut the car door behind him. “We need to go,” he stated quietly.

“Wait, where’s Joker?” Queen asked while she fired up the engine.

“Damn you, just go!” he shouted, causing everyone to sharply inhale. He didn’t look at any of them, he simply stared at his lap while the rest of the Thieves sat with bated breath, simultaneously understanding that their leader would not be joining them.

The atmosphere in the car was suffocating as Queen began to drive. 

“Hold on a damn second! We gotta go back!” Skull’s voice shattered the silence.

“Skull… please,” Panther pleaded softly.

“That’s our goddamn leader! We can’t just abandon him!”

He peered at Crow, who continued to silently gape at his lap. “Fine,” Skull seethed. “I’ll go back there my own damn self!”

“Skull, that is enough!” Fox bellowed. “All that will be waiting for us is death. We’ve sacrificed one of our own already; we cannot foolishly risk losing another!”

Silence befell the vehicle again from Fox’s sudden and harsh outburst. They all knew he spoke the truth, yet none of them desired to accept it; the mere thought was too agonizing to bear.

“D-damn it… damn it all!” Skull roared, nearly pounding a fist against the dashboard until he realized that Mona would get hurt from it. Panther and Noir held each other and wept. Oracle was gazing at her monitor, silently wiping away her tears so she could navigate. Queen sunk her teeth into her bottom lip and tightly gripped the steering wheel, with tears spilling over her eyes. Fox quietly stared out the window with his eyebrows furrowed and a grievous scowl etched onto his face. None of them spoke a word until they reached the entrance of Mementos.

“Hold a moment,” Crow commanded, his voice barely audible. The Thieves turned their attention toward him. “He handed me this and instructed me to read it with you all before he…” Crow hung his head and retrieved the book from his pocket.

“I’ve seen that before,” Panther said. “That’s his journal that he was supposed to fill out during his year here. Something to do with his probation…”

“Why would he instruct us to read it? Wouldn’t it be more sensible to return it to the chief?” Noir asked.

“If I may, I recommend that we read it. Perhaps there is vital information contained within these pages,” Crow chimed.

“You have a point,” Queen agreed. “This feels like an invasion of privacy, but this was a direct order from our leader. We should respect his… final wish.”

“Then… I will leave this to you, Queen. You are the adviser, after all, and you have been a Phantom Thief far longer than I. I trust there are no objections?” Crow surveyed the team. None of them contained enough energy to object. “Very well. Here you are.” He handed the journal to Queen, and she flipped the book open to the first page.

“This goes back all the way to April, when he first arrived.” Queen glanced up at the team. “Is everyone ready?” They mumbled their agreement. “All right… let’s do this.”


Sunday, April 10th

I just got back from Shujin and I can already feel the love. Sojiro gave me this diary to keep track of my year here, but… 

Was I really wrong about saving that woman? I couldn’t just ignore that, and I don’t regret stepping in, but… oh well. It’s over now. I just need to make it through one year. 

This should be good…


“I recall him mentioning his charges earlier. I assume this is what he was referring to,” Crow said.

“Yeah, some bastard threatened the cops and that chick to keep quiet about what really happened, and Joker had to take the blame for everything,” Skull responded. “Dammit, he could never catch a break.”

“…Let’s read on,” Queen quietly replied.


Monday, April 11th

Today, I saw a girl so beautiful I almost started crying. It was something more than her physical beauty, though… maybe her aura? Oh yeah, and I met this kid named Ryuji. He seemed a bit brash, but he’s actually pretty cool. We got stuck in this weird castle and I got this new power… Persona. But why…? I got a nice outfit out of it, so maybe I shouldn’t question it too much. I looked pretty good, after all. 

Anyway, I met a ‘cat’ named Morgana, too. I felt kind of bad for leaving it in that castle, but Ryuji and I had no choice. We were late to school because of that detour. 

The things we saw, though… students getting abused… Ryuji almost dying… I can’t let this go. I won’t let this go.


“Joker…” Panther’s voice quivered. “So this is what he thought of us…” Skull simply hung his head, and Morgana’s ear twitched. Queen skipped ahead to the next month.


Saturday, May 14th

Where do I even start? Makoto’s been on our case lately. I don’t think she’s a bad person, though. She’s actually kind of cute, and I’m pretty sure I’ve caught her following me once or twice. I wonder who put her up to this… 

Mishima’s been helping out, too. He’s pretty smart, even if he’s a little… eager. Also, this student from Kosei, Yusuke, approached us today and asked Ann to be his model. Not gonna lie, I would have been willing to take her place. I’ve been working out lately, so it’d be nice to have my effort appreciated. 

Anyway, Yusuke invited us to Madarame’s exhibition, so we should go investigate. That old man puts on a nice act, but I have a bad feeling about him… If he’s really plagiarizing his student’s work, I’ll make him pay, and I’ll make sure that Yusuke doesn’t have to suffer any longer…


“He never resented me,” Queen breathed shakily.

“Nor I… Joker truly believed in us, ever since our first encounters with him,” Fox added, his voice hushed yet dripping with sorrow.


Thursday, June 10th

This TV station trip is one of the seven circles of hell, I just know it… The hot air coming from the hosts and that Detective Prince definitely gave the place that nice, toasty feeling of hell-fire. 

Hm, Goro Akechi… We met him yesterday. He seemed cool, but today he ripped the Phantom Thieves a new one. Despite that, something about him seems… off. The look in his eye is familiar… almost as if he had suffered from this world, too. Or maybe I’m overthinking it…? 

Anyway, Dome Town was pretty fun. I’ll have to go there again sometime with my friends. We’ve become so close in such a short amount of time… I hope we continue to *Igor voice* strengthen our bonds…~

…I really hope that no one reads this.


Queen chuckled, tears starting to form in her eyes from how much she missed their leader. “That’s our Joker. Always so… charismatic.” She turned to face Crow.

His back was toward her and the surrounding Thieves. Revealing his twisted expression of agony and fury would only complicate matters. “Go on. Skip further ahead, if you please,” he softly ordered. “What did he write yesterday?”


Wednesday, November 9th

We’re still in the process of securing a route in the casino. Goro’s an incredible member of the team, even though he’s forcing us to disband after the fact. We’ve come so far, though. I tease them a lot, but I’m proud of everyone. Sometimes I really wonder if I’m worthy of being their leader… but I will never abandon them. They mean too much to me, and I’ll gladly protect them until the bitter end. Even if I have to face the entire world… 

I’ve been having a bad feeling lately. I think something’s going to happen to me. If that’s the case, then whoever’s reading this needs to flip to the last few pages of this book.


“The last few pages…” Noir repeated.

“What’re you waitin’ for?! Go to the end!” Skull demanded.

“All right, all right!” Queen did as she was told. She noticed that the following pages were adorned with stains of dried…

…Tears? she thought. No way… did Joker…? Queen’s own eyes were beginning to water, but she persevered and deciphered the blurred writing.


To my teammates friends,

I’m… really sorry that you’re reading this right now. It means that I wasn’t enough, and I failed as your leader. But please, no matter what happens to me…

Keep fighting.

It won’t be easy, and you’ll feel like the entire world is turned against you, but you must remember our goal, the reason we fight. 

We fight for justice, we fight for those that can’t fight for themselves, and we fight for each other. If any of you forget that, I’m going to haunt you and nag you until you recall our purpose. 

We will take this world and banish its corruption, for the sake of those who suffered just as we did.

Now, I have something to say to each of you.

Ryuji: You were there with me from the very beginning. That temper of yours got us in a lot of trouble, but… I’m proud of you for getting angry at the injustice of the world, and getting angry for the sake of others. Keep that fire in your heart, because that’s what will illuminate the way to a better future, even when you feel consumed by the darkness of the present. I… really hope you become less hard on yourself. It’s good to own up to your mistakes, but don’t crush yourself by carrying the blame of others. You deserve more than that, so let go of that extra baggage and run free toward the bright life you deserve. Now… go kick some ass, just like we always do, and make me even more proud.

Morgana: You’re really something special, believe it or not. You have just as much of a place in our band of misfits as anyone else. We don’t abandon one of our own, okay? A true family doesn’t give up on each other, no matter how tough it gets, so we’re going to help you until you reclaim your memories, and even beyond that. A deal’s a deal, right? I’m… really going to miss you telling me to go to sleep every night. It may seem silly, but I was really happy to know that you cared for me. You’re important, Morgana, and it would be a shame for the world to miss out on someone as precious as you. Thank you for looking after all of us, and it may be selfish of me to ask this, but please continue to do that in my stead. I believe in you.

Ann: I’m left in awe every single day by how strong you are. Your smile and your heart is a force to be reckoned with; no matter what life throws at you, you always manage to stay positive and true to yourself while simultaneously uplifting others. You have more influence than you realize, and you can use that to protect those you cherish most. I know that your encouragement and presence has meant so much to me, and I know you can do anything you set your mind to, so go show the world that beautiful heart of yours that could shame even the most benevolent of gods. I’m honored that I got the chance to fight by your side and watch you develop into such a strong woman. I’m… really going to miss your radiant smile. My day never really felt complete without it, so I can’t believe I made it this far. It was like a life without the sun. So… thank you for shining on me and sharing your light with me, even when you may have needed it the most… Take care of yourself, Ann.

Yusuke: You know, they say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and you have this incredible ability to see the beauty in everything, even the most mundane of things. You never dismiss an opportunity to learn and grow from your experiences, and I trust that you never will. Because there is a lot to take from this world, good or bad, and I know that you will always strive to take the virtuous path. Don’t be ashamed to ask for help or depend on material objects to survive; you must live on and continue to share your wonderful vision with the world, because it desperately needs to see through the eyes of beautiful people like you. I’m really sorry… that I couldn’t make it long enough to see that come true, but I have faith that it will. Because you’ve changed me, and I’m… thankful beyond words for that. Never give in.

Makoto: You’ve really outdone yourself. I’m shocked that we made it so far without you, and I’m so proud that you found your potential again. That just goes to show the world that everyone is valuable… everyone has the potential to accomplish the most impossible of feats, and that’s especially true for you. You’re not useless, and you never have been or will be. You’re always going to have something to provide, whether it’s knowledge or power or even a simple smile. The moment you realized that was the moment you came alive, and watching that transition was the most rewarding thing I could have asked for. Don’t underestimate yourself, Makoto; you’ve kept me grounded all this time, and it’s been a privilege having someone so reliable look out for me. Your leadership far exceeds my own, but your trust and wisdom gave me the strength to carry on. Thank you… your guidance has meant everything to me. Charge forward with everyone, and don’t you dare look back.


Fox had to continue reading for Queen; she had begun to hyperventilate from her tormented sobs, and Panther held her, whispering shaky words of consolation through her own cries. Fox’s own cheeks were streaked with his sorrow, and he continued to read the diary through his damp eyelashes.


Futaba: I remember when we first met you. I’m so happy that you gave your life a second chance. You and your life are too precious to throw away, and you realized that through your own volition. Getting to know you is something that I cherish, and seeing you take your life back… that was priceless. You’ve done great things in your life, and you will continue to do so because it’s not over yet. Sure, it’s going to seem unbearable at times, and you may want to give up altogether… But don’t. Find a reason to live, and then strive for greatness. Fighting for your friendship and trust was well worth it; I’ve learned a great deal from you, and… you’ve shown me that it’s okay to forgive yourself. I’m… so grateful that you’re here with us right now. Know that we will always be here for you as you navigate your way toward your new future. We won’t let you fall back into the shadows of the past, because we will be right behind you. Now, go show the world what it means to live, and don’t ever give up.

Haru: We haven’t known each other for long, but you’ve blossomed more beautifully than any flower. You allowed yourself to trust again, and that is the best outcome that I could have hoped for. Your kindness and brilliance need to be shared so that others may learn from your example… just as I have. Trusting others doesn’t make you weak… on the contrary, it makes you more formidable than you could ever imagine. You’re living proof. I’m sorry that I couldn’t get to see what new plants you’ve grown… but I’m sure they turned out amazing, because knowing you, you put your very heart and soul into nurturing them. I want you to do that for yourself, too, so that you can continue to grow, and even inspire others to do the same. You’ll achieve great things and surpass even your own expectations… because you’ll have those you trust to take care of you when you feel like you’re wilting. 

Akechi Goro: We don’t always see eye-to-eye, but you’ve endured so much, far more than anyone should. You don’t have to do it alone anymore… it’s not too late. Don’t limit yourself or your value based on other people’s expectations and opinions. You are what matters, and this is your life; don’t live it for anyone else’s sake but your own. I wish we could have gotten to known each other better and come to understand one another even more… Talking with you at Leblanc meant more to me than you probably realize. I know doing the just thing isn’t always the easiest path… but please, don’t squander the chance to start over and do something good. I hope you at least give yourself that much. Thank you… for everything. You’re a fantastic teammate… and friend.

…I’ve rambled on long enough. Thank you all so much. I won’t forget… what any of you have done for me. Please… continue to do for the world what you have done for me. Keep your hearts free, and know that I will always be with you. You’ve made me… so proud to be your leader. I will always treasure our time together… and our friendship. I… I’m going to miss you all so much… 

Break free from the chains of society, and reclaim your lives. Continue to fight for the sake of justice and those you cherish, even if the entire world stands against you. That is what it means to be a Phantom Thief.


After reading the final statement of the diary, Fox gently closed the book and hung his head as his tears splashed on the ground. 

Skull was on all fours, his yellow gloves becoming wet from his lamentation. “Damn it…” he cried, his face twisting with despair.

The girls had huddled up together, embracing one another while they mourned the loss of their leader and repeatedly whimpered his name.

Mona remained standing, balling his paws into fists and silently allowing his tears to splatter against the pavement. 

Crow remained turned away from the group as he attempted to dispel his internal conflict. His rival was vanquished, and the Thieves would surely fall without their leader… so why wasn’t he absolutely thrilled? 

…It seems as though Joker was wrong, he thought, as he finally pivoted to face the retching and anguished group. Crow hastily caught the tear that trailed down his cheek, grateful to his mask for disguising his face. 

He truly was an extraordinary leader… and an invaluable friend…

AU where everything's the same except Jumin and Jaehee have a work relationship like Ron Swanson and April Ludgate

Jaehee: Where are you going?

Glam Choi: I want to talk to Jumin about Sarah.

Jaehee: You have to schedule an appointment.

Glam Choi: How bout now?

Jaehee: Mr. Han’s not here.

Glam Choi: He’s right there, I can see him.

Jaehee: I’ll let you know when he’s available.

Jumin: [raises glass to Jaehee through his office window, Jaehee raises hers back]

BONUS:

“I thought I was having this meeting with Jumin Han…?”

“I’m afraid Mr. Han is currently dead.”

[Translation] 100% SKE48 vol.1 Kitagawa Ryoha x Azuma Rion

Man, things change real fast since 100%SKE vol.1!!

Never thought I would post this while Rion will graduate soon….well, who would have known at the time of this interview, Rion already had ‘graduation’ in her mind. Anyways, we all know how much she loves Hokkaido and we wish her all the best.

Also for Ryoha, who would have thought she will become Team S leader.
Kids grow.

I think SKE situation right now is great, way better than the time of this interview. It may be too late to post these interviews, but I will keep posting.
So…enjoy reading!!


Since SKE48’s 6th gen debut, 3 years already have passed.

Seniors have graduated one after another. “UhaRion” is being seen as group’s representative.

With confusion, both of them are struggling to grow in Nagoya. How are they nowadays?

Now, the sun is rising.

Nippon Budokan was shaken
We want to see that scene from 4 years ago, again.

 

Words from Sae-san

- At first, we thought that if Rion got driving license, we would arrange scenic road trip while interviewing and Ryoha sits on front passenger seat.

Uha: I would like to! How is it going?

Rion: Almost final test.

Uha: How do you feel?

Rion: Not bad. I want to get driving license quickly so that I could go on a scenic drive. Well, just like you mentioned, let’s go to Hokkaido!

Uha: A scenic trip in Hokkaido? Let’s go, let’s go!

- I didn’t even agree with you *laugh*

Rion: it must be fun. I will take you to Coach&Four (giant department store in Hokkaido)

- That’s the department store which Rion is the presenter, right? We would like to go but our budget is kind of…

Uha: (not listening) I want to go to Rion’s favorite Sushi restaurant!

Rion: Alright! Let’s go to Hokkaido next time!

- Though you guys already agreed but I haven’t said “um” yet *laugh* that aside, how’s your driving skill?

Rion: I’m good.

 - Really!? As I saw videos that Aichi Toyota uploaded, you often drove up on wayside.

Rion: That’s the past! Now, I can drive on highway easily.

Uha: You’re great!

- She’s not that great! *laugh*

Rion: Before getting on the car, I was nervous but now, I’m okay.

Uha: Take me, too!

Rion: Right, want to go to Nagashima (spaland)? (theme park that Team S when to shoot “Kanojo ga iru” MV)

Uha: Let’s go!!

- We should back to the topic *laugh* This interview will be published in BUBKA special issue. For regular issue, the cover is Miyazawa Sae.

Uha: I know! She’s cute! Superb!

- thank you *laugh* In few hours, you will be performing (Sae’s) graduation stage. How do you feel?

Uha: I still can’t believe it. Though I realized it’s the truth but once I think that we will never be on stage together anymore, will never take photos together anymore, it feels unbelievable.

Rion: That’s right. When Sae-san came to SKE48 2 years ago, it was also unbelievable. Yesterday, I was thinking about the present for Sae-san so I talked with Futamura Haruka-san. We finally decided to bake a cake. We made it all night long. We will surprise her after stage ends. It looks like this (show the picture in her phone)

- Oh! There’s “SAE” and “LOVE”! Rion did that much for Sae-san, how about Ryoha who admires her the most?

Uha: I made graduation photo album with Takeuchi Mai-san. We made it till 5 am! So now, I’m sleepy.

- Sorry that we interview you at the time like this.

Uha: Because it’s all handmade. We need to glue the photos. We will give it to her during stage or maybe, at the end of stage.

- For Sae-san, these things are full of LOVE. Today, you must be crying?

Uha: I’m not going to. I don’t think I will. I already passed that sad period. None!

- You’re into “Zen” aspect now? (t/n: Ryoha used the word 無 which is the core word in Zen)

Rion: Ryoha will get stronger for sure. Even though, you were so sad when Sae-san announced graduation.

Uha: It’s not like that. 2 weeks before graduation concert, my condition was really bad. I even cried in handshake event.

Rion: I don’t know about this at all.

Uha: It was the first time since I entered SKE48 that cried this much. Because I didn’t want to cry in front of other members, so when I couldn’t hold it, I went to staff’s room. I cried a lot that my eyes got swollen. But I used eye drops, so no one knows it. * laugh*

- Thanks to medical innovation *laugh* even so, in graduation concert, members lined up on the passage and Sae-san had a word with everyone, right? That day, I entered everyone’s blog but I didn’t see anyone posted about those words.

Rion: Of course, not.

Uha: It’s the words I want to keep it in my heart.

- If it’s that important, then let’s reveal it the first time here.

Uha&Rion: No way!

- give me some hints

Rion: I will tell you one sentence then “tell Papa and Mama, please take care of me”

- what does it mean by that?

Rion: It’s unimportant part so I can tell you fufufufu

Uha: I will not tell no matter what.

- You won’t…ah…despite this is special issue…(intentionally exaggerate)

Uha: Then, I will give you some hints. She said “take care of yourself” She always told me “Ryoha, you pretend to be strong too much, it would be good if you discuss with adults more” I think that’s what it means.

Rion: Ryoha is the type that wouldn’t say what’s in her mind out loud.

- I see. Then, it means you should reply on them more?

Rion: You want to know more?

- Yes! Yes!

Rion: Sae-san sent LINE message to me.

Uha: (looks jealous) you’re lying! When? When did she send? Why? Is that Sae-san?

Rion: On the day of concert, I sent her thank you message, so she replied back. Let me read it from LINE.

- *clap* we’re waiting!

Rion: “Rii-san, country mom cookies were delicious! It’s more delicious than buying from shop! Thank you. These 2 days concert, thanks for hard work. You are pretty and cute and also looks mysterious. I want to be like that, too. But sometimes, I think it’s regrettable. If only Rion realized these strengths, you would be stronger than you are now. I’m waiting to see it. Anyways, Mar.31 the last day, please take care of me.” That day, I baked cookies for her. She replied me like that.

Uha: (jealousy x2 )

- Ryoha is jealous. You can tell from her face *laugh*

Uha: It’s not like that. I just think that she’s great. Sae-san, she’s kind to everyone. That’s why I like her!

Rion: I read the message from my LINE. Then, shooting in Hokkaido, please take care of us.

- we didn’t agree on that…

The real me and the new me

- Sae-san said “regrettable” what do you think made her say that?

Rion: I know it. People mostly see me as introvert person, not motivated, also looks boring. A moment ago, I saw myself in monitor, I felt that “this is actually what everyone has told me!” I’m not a cheerful person. It’s even worse with my soft voice. But because of Sae-san, I became more cheerful. I got influenced by her cheerfulness.

- Thanks to Sae-san, right?

Rion: Yes. I’m quite a shy person, I don’t get close to people easily. But, I think I understand now that socializing is a job. Sae-san taught me that. That said, Ryoha is also like me.

Uha: Eh? ‘regrettable’? I never heard people saying that.

Rion: It must be. * laugh*

Uha: So weird. But I can get along with people now, there’s nothing like that.

- Get along now *laugh* Then, I would like to raise a topic here. When Ryoha is with Matsumoto Chikako, you seem to be a totally different person.  

 Rion: I think so, too.

Uha: Different person…yes *laugh* I love playing pranks when I’m with members. Before I entered SKE48, I also got scolded in class often. In fact, that’s how I am. However, after I entered SKE48, I think more seriously. I think I have to do things with caution, so I might seem to be quiet. The real me is when I’m with Chikako.

Rion: When these two are together, I couldn’t catch up with them.

Uha: We’re just fooling around *laugh* moreover, since Sae-san graduated, no one initiates fun atmosphere in changing room. From now on, leave it to me and Chikako!

Rion: Okay! Then, Chikako becoming Team S vice leader can also imply about this. Chikako and Sae-san have something in common.

Uha: They have a lot in common.

Rion: They are kind of weird.

- With Chikako-san, from my point of view, you two (Chikako and Rion) are not that close.

Uha: She calls Rion “Namara! Namara!” (Namara in Hokkaido means “very” or “great”)

Rion: Yeah. That’s how Chikako say hi to me *laugh*

- So, she’s like that. We would like to interview her, too. Anyways, since Sae-san graduated, does atmosphere in the team change?

Rion: (Sae-san) didn’t attend theater stage often, it may not change much.

Uha: But it’s not about team. It’s the group that’s not the same. There are things that only Sae-san can do. Sae-san always conveys member’s opinion to staff-san. If Sae-san says, members would agree. If you ask me who would take over this responsibility, it would be (Saito) Makiko-san.

- How’s Makiko-san, the new captain?

Rion: She has interpersonal skills. She’s good at getting along with people.

Uha: She made friend with AKB48-san, too.

Rion: I was in the same dorm with her for a while. She’s a senior who is easy to talk to, suitable to be captain.

Uha: Really suitable!

Rion: Sometimes, being responsible as captain can make you worried, right? But members like Makiko-san. We want to support her.

Uha: Ryoha, too!

Rising above crisis

- Let’s change the topic here. What kind of situation you think SKE48 is in right now?

Rion: We have just risen from the biggest crisis.

Uha: Ryoha also think like that!

Uha & Rion: Yeah! *Hi five*

- How’s that feeling coming from?

Rion: Recently, our program in LINE live had 8 hundred thousand views.

Uha: So happy!

Rion: That’s not total views, it’s net views. Moreover, BUBKA still hasn’t publish this issue yet. Thank you so much.

Uha: And ESCA!

 - department store in Nagoya subway station’s campaign that SKE48 was chosen as presenter since April, right?

Uha: It’s a grand campaign. We can proclaim that this is “SKE48 of Nagoya”

Rion: And then, we got more appearance on magazines. I was also chosen to be on cover.

Uha: That’s right. More appearance on magazines.

Rion: Around 1 year ago, photoshoots for magazine unexpectedly decreased. But now, I have no time to break.

 - Then, As Rion mentioned a moment ago “the biggest crisis”, when was it?

Rion: during “Koppu no naka no komorebi” in autumn last year.

Uha: That’s right.

Rion: In other words, it was after (Matsui) Rena-san graduated. And there was a time when I felt bad, it was “Bukiyou Taiyou” in summer last year.

 - It was after Nagoya Dome, right?

 Uha: I remember that I felt the gap between “Mirai to wa?” and “Bukiyou Taiyou”

Rion: But now, I feel that we are heading in a good way.

 - Why is that?

Rion: I also don’t know why but members are all trying their best, right? Staff-san are also trying their best somewhere that we can’t see.

Uha: Exactly. Everyone knows well that if it continues like this, it wouldn’t be good. Whenever SKE48 unified as one, we have great power. This point, we would never lose.

Determined and reluctant general election

- Last question is general election.

Rion: You would certainly ask this *laugh* Actually, I was reluctant to participate this year.

- Eh? Why?

Rion: Last year, my goal was “to get ranked” and I achieved it. (61st Rank) I think there must be people who were exhausted getting it for me. However, general election also has its advantages. I got a lot works since I ranked last year.

- Do you see new fans coming at handshake events?

Rion: Yes. That’s because I got more media exposure. I appeared on TV because of my piano skill. I was quite outstanding in “konya wa otomari” Fans came to tell me that “I watched that, too”

- How about Ryoha?

Uha: I was thinking about it till the last minute. I decided not to participate before that. If I weren’t get ranked or my rank drops, people may say “This is as far as Kitagawa Ryoha can go” I don’t want it to be that way.

Rion: Um. I was also worried about that.

- However, you chose to participate in the end. Even though you have various opinions about general election, but you can’t refuse the fact that for this world “AKB48 = general election”

Uha: I know.

- For example, when people unintentionally watch morning news, and reporter reports the news about AKB48 that has SKE48 in it. This is very important, right? Or for example, when they report about “SKE48 is the no.1 group” this kind of news can reach people easily.

Rion: I also think it’s important.

- Maybe, general election is the best opportunity to spread SKE48 reputation. Though singles and Music programs are important but SKE48 in general election is strong.

Rion: That’s true.

- Sorry for talking too much. You both aim at Undergirls, right?

Uha & Rion: Yes.

Uha: In the past, they only announced 40 ranks, right? So, if I couldn’t rank higher than that, I’m not satisfied.

Rion: Higher rank is my goal. But I still don’t have confidence to say Senbatsu. Undergirls is also high. Anyways, the higher I set my goal, the harder I try.

- General election 4 years ago, a lot of Undergirls came from SKE48. It made Nippon Budokan shaken. If you can do it again, it would be great.

Rion: I also want to see that scene. *laugh*

- Well, at this time last year, we also had an interview with both of you. Compared to that time, we think you two really have grown stronger.

Uha: Really?

- We really think like that. When we interview Sae-san, she said “I would like to tell members who think that you can’t take this anymore. I’ve gone over the slump 3 times already, I understand how you feel but I got through it.” If you could get through these obstacles, you would be stronger, right?

Uha: I already got through it! I tried again and again.

- Ryoha-san, when you were Kenkyusei, you got through the test to be Under in Team S.

Uha: That’s right. I went through the state that I have to carry. If it were school, I wouldn’t do it. I would say “I’m quit” but this is not school but it’s the world I chose to enter with my own will. If I escape, it will be over.

- You are stronger now. How about Rion-san?

Rion: I never went through something like that. But from now, there will be. The practice for AKB49 is starting.

Uha: Do your best *laugh* I went through it last year. Though I can’t say ‘do your best’ confidently but I really was doing my best that time.

- The main character Urakawa Minoru / Minori is a very important role.

Rion: I got this role in place of (Shibata) Aya-san. In fact, I already said once that “I can’t do it” but I think that try doing something great is also a great opportunity. The practice hasn’t started yet, but  I almost crumble. It’s like needles piercing through my heart.

Uha: I will support you! I will also go to see you practice.

- It will be okay, if you could get through it…

Rion: I would get the photoshoot in Hokkaido, right?

- I didn’t say that at all *laugh*


It’s baby daaaaay! I really hope you like this chapter! Please do let me know your thoughts!

33. Forty Weeks (2)

“Deep breaths.” Haymitch reminded her, feeling like an ass for doing so.

If the glare she tossed his way was anything to go by, Effie shared the thought. He wished the midwife would be a little more present but aside from making sure there would be enough hot water, that everything was ready and, in Haymitch’s opinion, wasting time not to suffer the blunt of Effie’s anger, he wasn’t finding her very unhelpful so far. Mariana regularly showed up in the bedroom to check on Effie but that was it. She had declared it was a special time for Haymitch and Effie to share and that she would only be intruding since there was nothing to do until Effie was ready to give birth.

What's the weather like in India?

This was originally going to be a rant about how hot it is in India right now but I’ve decided to make it productive instead. Here are some facts about India’s weather!
There are four seasons (technically):
- Winter: This season lasts from December to March. Temperatures can reach below freezing depending on where you are. The farther north you go, the cooler it gets. If you want to visit the western desert states, I would go during this season.
- Summer: This season lasts from April to June. It’s summer here right now and let me tell you it is not only hitting above 90 degrees every day but the humidity is out of control. And that’s right, we go straight from winter to summer. Only the very northern parts of India get to experience spring. The hottest month of summer is actually May. On the brighter side, mango season is in the summer, and mangoes from India are the best.
- Monsoon: This season lasts from mid June/July to September. It’s the rainy season, so it’s cooler than summer. The only problem is that it rains really, really hard. There’s regular flooding, and if you stay near a pond like my grandparents you may find snakes in your parking garage. The rain isn’t cold, either, so a lot of people don’t mind getting wet as much.
- Post- Monsoon: I want to change this season’s name because it’s too awesome for a name like “post-monsoon.” The weather is literally perfect, but it lasts only two months: October and November. If you want to visit India, I recommend doing it during this time period. Also, West Bengal ( and some other states) has this epic festival called Durga Puja where we worship this goddess names Durga for ten days. Kids get a break from school at that time. The festival is religious, yes, but it is also fun to go pandal-hopping (visiting the different temporary shrines where the festival is held. The pandals are often themed and look like works of art!)
Of course, this will vary from state to state depending on its location in India. Traditionally, there are six seasons (ritu), each two months long: winter, spring, summer, monsoon, autumn, and pre-vernal.
Remember, if you have any questions, I can answer them!

Happy Birthday!

“Jackson, please, stop.”

“No, April, I won’t. It’s her first birthday. I think we, better than anyone, are aware how you can’t get these for granted.”

 A deep silence felt over the wooden table. The redhead was staring at her lap, hands still holding the silverware. She could feel the tears pooling up behind her waterline, but was determined to not let them fall. April could feel Jackson’s eyes staring at her skull, and she could picture exactly how guilt and apologetic they were at the moment. Unfortunately, the anger that was overcoming the sadness in her chest didn’t let her care. She saw his hand lay the fork over the table and try to reach hers right in front of him, as she wouldn’t meet his eyes, but all the woman could do was to release her utensils and put them away.

It’s been a while, again. For now, here is a series of the things I did from April to May!

NEW THEME/BANNER

Just changed my color scheme, a new banner and a new cool feature! Check it out if you wanna!

ADVENTURE TRACKER

I’ve placed marks on the map on places I’ve been to. I am person who just likes keeping track and making list. It’s not much… right now. Soon I’ll be filling this up! If you want to add this on your blog - just click zeemaps and you can make one for yourself. It’s easy and so addicting!

HOLY WEEK STAYCATION WITH FAMILY

For holy week, we opted to stay in the city - since (a) we knew a lot of people are going to travel - that means a lot of traffic & (b) we have a newborn with us so travelling far isn’t really suitable for his situation. We stayed at Acacia Suites in Taguig via AIRBNB. What I love about this is that they incorporated a lot of nature elements to sort of balance the city + country life.

SUMMER STAYCATION

We had another staycation at SHELL Residence in Pasay which was favorable to me because it was just a few walks from the office. Mom also chose this because it was near the airport and she was goin to head back to Japan again. 


SECOND ADVENTURE WITH MY LOVE

I knew a long weekend was coming up (Labor Day) and I took it as an opportunity to sneak in a quick getaway. Luckily Just was up for it and this time, we decided it was a 3D2N trip! Last one we went to was at the south and now we chose to go to North and visit Zambales!

THIRD ADVENTURE (already?!) in ANTIPOLO & TAGAYTAY

One saturday, I was at the dentist with a small bag with just one bathing suit and just one extra clothes because we planned on going night swimming at Antipolo with Just and his officemates. After our swimming, they - on a whim - decided we go to Tagaytay, just for the heck of it. And we did. We went from one high place in the North to go to another in the South.

EVERYONE MEET SEPH

My very very cute nephew!! He is so little!! I have fears holding him since he’st still fragile so I’ll wait a few more months til I can fully play with him. For now, I’ll just continue admiring him haha!

OFFICIALY UNEMPLOYED

This might come as a shock but now I am! My job was just project based for 3 months and my contract ended just today. I had a little get together in SNR (again haha!) as my birthday treat and also as despedida. I am so happy these are the people I get to work with - not because of what they are professionally, but what they are personally.

I TURN 22 TODAY!!!!!

Yes, today!!! As I’m typing this, it is my birthday. I have nothing to do much today really - which is what I wanted tbh. I used to dread growing old but I’m just so blessed to be alive for 22 years and to be filled with so much love. 

MY BIRTHDAY GIFT FOR MYSELF

This is what I spent my last income for! I am really obsessed with instant/film photos that I got myself 70 films. 10 was from Just (the black ones) and the rest I bought. It’s funny because one of it has a design of happy wedding (which I used with my officemates) haha! This is to document future adventures.


And since I am unemployed, I have a lot of time in my hands. I am gonna be posting a lot again. And when I say a lot - I MEAN A LOT. Thank you for still being here. Thank you for reading! I hope you had a nice day. 

livielovesbatman  asked:

Book Millard hcs pretty please?

2-4 Songs that might be on their iPod: Anton Arensky’s Variation on a Theme of  Tchaikovsky. Beethoven’s Second Romance in F major seems like a good one for him too. Maybe Our World by My Morning Jacket? Although I think he really has an affinity for classical I’ll bet he listens to some modern stuff. When he’s in a good mood or needs to listen to something nice, I think it’d be Everyday by Buddy Holly. Also Pure Imagination from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.  

The one place they sometimes end up falling asleep- where they’re not supposed to: Back in the loop, Millard would nod of in the library, a book in his hands. In the present day, he often finds himself falling asleep in Jacob’s living room, the warm yellow light making him drowsy.

The game they’d destroy everyone else at: The first thing that came to mind was chess, but I actually think he’d be really good Clue. He’d love finding out what happened, and somehow always seems to figure it out before everyone else? No one likes to play it with him anymore.

The emoticon they’d use most often: 🤔 he often uses it when Jacob asks him something dumb.

What they act like when they haven’t had enough sleep: Sometimes Millard can get really crabby, but mostly he just gets really absentminded, and stares into space for really long periods of time. He’s not even thinking about anything.

Their preferred hot beverage on really cold nights. Or mornings. Or whenever: Earl Grey tea. Always. He always has a cup in his hands whether he’s studying, or just getting ready for bed, or sitting around the table with everyone eating breakfast in the morning.

How they like to comfort/care for themselves when they’re in a slump: He buys himself a really nice book, usually one he’s had his eye on for a while. He also takes really long baths and just soaks in the steam.

What they wanted to be when they grew up: It’s no surprise, but a teacher. Millard has had a fascination with being able to help people learn new things, and he’s wanted to do it for as long as he can remember.

Their favorite kind of weather: I may be influenced by how the weather is here right now (snowing. In april.) but I really think Millard would enjoy kind of glum, gross weather. The kind that makes you want to curl up inside with a nice book and a cup of something good to drink. On days when the weather’s nicer, however, Millard likes to sit on Jacob’s porch and do research.

Thoughts on their singing voice (decent? terrible? soprano? alto?): Okay I like to think that Millard’s a really strong tenor, and he secretly has a really good voice but you’ll have to blackmail him or something to get him to sing. Only a few people have had the chance to hear him sing, probably only Emma, who prodded him into singing a few lines for her, Claire, who Millard has sung to sleep before, and Enoch, who overheard him in the shower. He told basically everyone but no one believed him. Millard, singing?? Outrageous.

How/what they like to draw or doodle: Millard doesn’t do a lot of absentminded doodles, but he does take a lot of notes, and he tends to include little diagrams and such with them. He’s got a very neat, steady hand, and he draws with very thin lines. He does occasionally find it hard to focus, at which point he’ll start drawing what’s around him in the margins of his page; just mugs, pencils, the window and curtains. He doesn’t like to draw people.

Chicago: Chapter 6

 Alright, here is chapter six.  Sorry this one took a bit longer to post.  I was traveling for the holiday, so I didn’t have much writing time. It’s a bit shorter than the others, but like I keep saying, this is my first fanfic and I wasn’t quite sure what all to include in this part.  I love reading all of your reviews, and I hope you like this chapter!  Thanks for reading!
