The moon rose itself high above his head, causing the red that stained his hazel eyes to shine outwards even more, a low growl escaping his lips as he crawled through the lonely forest. Its tall trees seemed to touch the sky, no matter what form his body had placed itself in, the trees reached as far to touch the heavens above him. His body seemed to turn at the speed of light even when he heard the smallest cracks of a branch, worrying himself over probably just a harmless, little squirrel lusting for the acorn before him. He sighed as he stalked on, patrolling the woods as to pose for something else; just like the squirrel, there was something he absolutely desired in the exact same way. He would’ve thought by now that he’d have found his mate, but his thoughts were rendered incorrect when his leader no longer spoke of his single life.

He seemed to find the dedication in his words, hidden and buried beneath the strong words he upheld for his mate, posing her as someone strong as himself in front of his pack. The kindness that he up fronted his words with wasn’t what caught him falling for the idea, but more or so the bliss of having such a counterpart; the other half he’s missed the past 18 years of his life. A year had almost passed since his birthday, yet he was still lonely as he prowled throughout the empty forests.

He ached for such solitude, the kind of torture that tied him together with someone of his own for eternity. The thought of such a process seemed ethereal to him, it just came with being the youngest of his pack. His six older brothers, and above all of that they would lead him to live a life just as they would and ask that he would follow in their footsteps; but when their Alpha, Namjoon, passed the title down to him as oppose to the other pack members, things became even heavier on him. He was determined to find his mate, the Female Alpha. So when the day finally came that he would find you, it would all be just a coincedence waiting to happen.


The stress that balanced on your head like a book had been placed there was absolutely killing you at this point. No matter how hard you tried, there was no way you’d be able to catch up on your precious sleep. The sunlight that seeped through the thin blinds of your window were what you woke up to after only a half hour sleep, and after very much self-convincing you finally decided that you were doing too much work for your own body to handle.

The first thing that came to your mind was a good walk, something to refresh your mind and bring you some peace in your hectic life for once. You remembered the forest that passed you by every morning on your way to work; it had always seemed to bring you in by the collar every time you saw the sunshine fade through the thick leaves of the trees, and you had only wished for more free time to allow yourself to venture it as you so wished. So that was where you were going, no matter how restless you were. To the public, it almost would’ve seemed like you were drunk out of your mind; even on the way there, you felt your vision continuously fade, causing you to trip over yourself multiple times.


The weight of your footsteps crunched against the fallen leaves, the death that traveled through its veins hardening it into a shell. You walked cautiously, each step careful not to trip itself over another fallen branch. The autumn feel was completely contained in the forest’s aura, the color scheme remaining multiple shades of orange due to the weather changes. The atmosphere itself had already began to soothe your worries, the peaceful silence bringing you the bliss of a simple massage. You smiled at yourself before venturing even further into the unknown of the woods before you.

Your arms were spread out around you, acting as if you were completely aware as to any danger to come near you. The sun of the night had begun to rise itself above you, its bright shine hardly visible through the tall trees surrounding it. You had work tomorrow, of course you did, but the importance of that would never compare to the beauty of the forest that had caught you in a net. You meekly laughed at your own actions, finally dropping your arms back down to your waist to relax yourself.

Right when you heard footsteps right behind you.

The noise had rendered you completely frozen, your ears perking up at the steps that creeped closer and closer to you. Your heavy panting fell slave to your fear, your breath finally hitching itself in the lodge of your throat. The sounds of your own breath were replaced by that of the person behind you, the heat of his breathing traveling up from the crook of your neck to the sensitive spot behind your ear. His hand and his delicate and feather like touch caressed your arm generously, goosebumps growing cold on your skin. “Sweetheart, do you realize how dangerous it is out here? Especially in the middle of the night,” his voice trailed off as his body figure traveled to the front of you. He didn’t give you a chance to answer him back as he took you by the hand and pulled you into the darkness of the woods.

You were completely clueless as to the situation you were in, fear clouding your mind and not allowing yourself to think clearly. Your mind seemed to resemble the sky above you as your gaze traveled up. The black canvas represented your mind as a whole, while the thin, grey clouds that shadowed the stars represented your struggle to think. You moved your gaze back down in front of you, your eyes coincidentally meeting with the back of the boy’s head. His brown shined under the moonlight, even when the darkness around you had enveloped the rest of your sight. The line that traveled down his back had been perfectly displayed to you as he ran along with you trailing behind him, the muscles in his back flexing with every lunge. You had absolutely no idea who he was, but you had to admit his first impression wasn’t that bad; aside from the fact that he was practically kidnapping you at the moment.

In your mind, even you yourself were wondering why you would let such a gorgeous man kidnap you; maybe it was the stress that weighed you even closer to the floor, or the fact that you just wanted out of your stressful life, or maybe it was neither. You felt yourself floating around him, the oxygen that he brought around with him seemed different from the air that flowed throughout the entirety of the woods. It felt like there was a reason for what was currently going on, and it was one that would required you to be from a whole other world to understand.

You were his mate, and you just didn’t know it yet—as if you’d even know it in the first place. He had found you through your scent from even miles away, finding himself instantly attracted to you, leading him to stalk you around until he finally found the perfect moment to steal you for himself.

He stopped the both of you in front of a cave-like structure, completely cleared out of trees so that the main focus was itself and its beauty. Your feet stopped abruptly behind him as you stumbled into his bare back, your fingers unintentionally clawing at his shoulders. Your breath suddenly picked up once more as he suddenly held you against his body even longer and closer, watching out of the corner of your eye as he took in your scent. He buried his noise into your hair, his touch on you as soft as cotton and as light as a feather. He was gentle, cradling your frame gently in his arms to distract you from the fact that his lips began to move closer and closer to your neck.

You were so focused on him, how lovely it would be to have fallen in love with him; yet that was a fantasy you had to wait no longer for. You were violently dragged out of your thoughts when you felt a soft pair of lips land in the crook of your neck, planting a single sweet kiss on the exact spot that drove you crazy.

A dark blush consumed your features as you finally got to hear his deep and velvety voice for once, a low howl falling from his innocently beautiful lips. “I guess I’ve finally found you, my beautiful mate. My Female Alpha.”

RFA with Saeran/V with a very clumsy MC. Like she runs into poles or trips on air.

Being clumsy can be hard! But this was a pretty cute ask lol

☆Admin Destin

Zen

  • Any pole that MC ran into would be a dead pole
  • Zen would beat the heckie out of anything in MC’s way
  • He’s gotta protect his MC from anything and everything
  • They trip around him so much, catching them before they hit the ground would become second nature to him
  • He’d grab onto them as they fell and wrap his arms around them to make them feel safer

Yoosung

  • Every time that MC ran into something, Yoosung would check to make sure that they were okay
  • He’d kiss the bumps on their head and bandage up their scraped knees
  • Then he’d make the whole house/apartment safer, covering up sharp corners, hiding the knives, and putting away anything breakable
  • He’d essentially baby proof the house is what I’m saying

Jaehee

  • The first time she saw their bruises, Jaehee would be so concerned and confused
  • “What is happening? Are you getting into fights? How are you tripping over nothing?”
  • Jaehee would become very careful around her MC, stocking up on bandages and would probably consider wrapping MC in bubble wrap
  • Any time MC wants to get up and go somewhere/get something from the next room, Jaehee jumps up and gets it for them before they can do anything

Jumin

  • Jumin would also be confused by MC’s accidental self-destructiveness
  • “Maybe Elizabeth the 3rd can teach you how to be more graceful”
  • If he could convince them, he’d have them to try some of those princess etiquette lessons so they could practice better coordination and balance
  • (Like the ones where you walk with books balanced on your head)
  • He would also try to keep a closer eye on them so that they didn’t injure themselves too seriously

Seven

  • Seven would laugh at first and tease them about it a bit
  • But he’d also make sure they were fine and not hurt too much
  • When MC trips, he makes sure to trip too so they don’t feel too embarrassed
  • Sometimes they just lay on the ground for a bit so MC can get their bearings before making the second attempt at walking

V

  • V also trips over things and runs into poles and walls
  • The boy is blind, but he’s gotten more used to it with practice
  • He does his best to teach MC how to be more careful and conscious of their surroundings
  • He’s very patient with them, because he just wants them to be safe

Saeran

  • Saeran would always be surprised when they tripped randomly
  • He’d chide them when they stumbled, scared of them getting hurt
  • “You have to be more careful! I don’t want anything to happen to you!”
  • He’d pull them out of the way whenever they were headed toward a poorly placed wall or pole

Imagine having trouble sleeping, so you see if Elijah is awake and you find him reading in bed, so he lets you sleep there and you curl up next to him whilst he reads and strokes your hair and is all cute.

——— Request for anon ———

He can’t help but smile as you dive under the covers as he holds them up for you, your welcome escape from the cold hardwood beneath your bare feet, “Want me to read to you?”

You situate yourself softly against his chest, feeling his hand come to rest on the side of your head, stroking soothingly as he balances his book in his other, “What are you reading?”

Exo reaction to their girlfriend saying her favorite physical feature about them

Hey nonnie! Thanks for requesting and I’m so sorry I’ve made you wait. College and work had me swamped but I’d love to do this for you. I hope a text reaction is fine for now…

Suho: You’d be cuddling it up with this old ajhumma and it’s a normal day and you’re quite absorbed in your tv show and randomly you just let it slip that, “You have some seriously good abs you know?” in a low voice. You felt Suho stiffen behind you and when you turned around in alarm, this boy was blushing beet red. His ears had gotten so red you were going to dissolve into giggles. You’ve never seen the leader more embarrassed than that.

Chanyeol: A few of the exo boys had been on your case about your relationship with Chanyeol and Baek decided to be really annoying and ask why you even liked Chanyeol. Without missing a beat, you announced, “Have you see this boy? He’s so sweet he gives me diabetes. How could I not like him?” Chanyeol was a bit shy for a minute but that went down the drain when the boys started cheering and Chanyeol proudly wrapped his arms around you and whispered, “Thanks Jagi!”

D.O: It had been a hard day for you and you wee waiting for dinner quite impatiently. The minute Kyungsoo put the soup down in front of you, you whipped out a spoon and dug in and almost burnt your tongue in the process. He hit your head slightly, worried that you’d seriously burn yourself. But you couldn’t help it. “This is so delicious I think I could marry you just for this.” You were too tired to retract your words but you didn’t have to. Kyungsoo was happily staring at you and a satisfied smile replaced his worried expression. I’m pretty sure he has already planned the names of your kids.

Baekhyun: “JAGI JAGI JAGI LOOK AT THIS!” Baekhyun was balancing a bunch of your books on his head, walking carefully across the living room. You wanted to snap at him because you were working on a very important project and this boy refused to keep quiet. But his silly antics evaporated the heavy tension on your head and you found yourself mumble, “How can you make me so happy?” Baekhyun stopped in his tracks suddenly and all the books tumbled from his head, falling in a heap on the floor. His eyes softened and he sat down on the sofa next to you and kissed your forehead. “Because you make me the happiest person in the world.”

Kai: “I don’t want to.” Kai was being an adamant guy that day. You were trying to get him to go on a double date with you. You guys had been busy and your friends wanted to see you but you also wanted to spend time with him. On the other hand, Kai wanted you to come hang out with the boys for exactly this reason.

“Why do I have to do it for you then? Why can’t it be my friends this time?” The minute the words left your mouth you knew they were petty. Petty and stupid but you couldn’t apologise not now. You saw Kai’s mouth turn into a bitter thin line and knew this was going to be a long fight. You sunk into the cushions and whispered, “God I love how you stick to your friends but this is too much Kai.” You heard him sigh and sit down next to you. He laced his fingers with yours and whispered, “How about a compromise? Let’s spend the day in, just the two of us.” You liked that idea best.

Sehun: You were watching him from the kitchen, rearranging the sheets and making your bed that morning. You felt yourself stare at him for a bit too long and decided it was time to tell him, it was stupid to hold it to yourself like some big secret. You walked behind him and wrapped your hands around his torso. “You know…” You began, “I like how you take care of me, especially the little things.” He smiled to himself, thinking you were just mentioning this in passing. “I love you,” he beat you to your declaration and saw your eyes widen. But this boy already knew what you were going to say. He knew you a bit too much.

Kris: You were watching the youtube clip with him and Sophie for the umpteenth time and watched them fondly as they interacted in their own little bubble. “You like it that much?” His face was snuggled in on your shoulder and you nodded without turning back. Though Kris and you had never been very big on overly cheesy things or the topic of kids, both of you were quite filial. He put the laptop away and snuck into the space next to you on your bed and let your head rest on your shoulders. “Thank you” He whispered. “hmm?” You echoed. Words were failing you for the first time in your life. “Thanks for being my best friend.”

Xiumin: Minseok was having a hard time during the interview and you knew it. You were watching it live on the appand you couldn’t wait to see him after he got home, hoping to comfort him someway but until then, a small comment would have to do.

y/nlikeskawaii: Minseok oppa it’s ok to be a bit flustered. We see so much strength in you. please don’t forget that. saranghae~ xx

You didn’t think much of it then but when you felt minseok slip into the house way past midnight and hug you with all his might, you knew something was up. “Thank you Jagi. You have no idea how much you mean to me.” You were wondering what he meant but then he mentioned how he knew all your usernames and knew it was you commenting that on the app and it helped him a great deal through that interview.

Luhan: He came out of the bath, a towel around his neck and his face bare of all the makeup you usually see on him. You weren’t against the makeup but you weren’t exactly for it either. You knew how much pressure was on him to maintain the health of his skin and it was beyond health now - his skin was his career. You patted the space in front of you and luhan padded over and sat in front of you, and you took the towel from him and started drying his hair for him. “You look your best like this. Bare faced and everything….” You didn’t know if you worded it right. It sounded weird even coming out of your mouth. But Luhan got what you wanted to say. He pressed his palm against your cheek and kissed your forehead quickly. Whispering a small “I love you” as you continued toweling his hair dry. (A/N I GAVE MYSELF FEELS. WONDERFUL)

Lay: Lay was busy playing the same tune over and over again. A deep frown was etched on his forehead and his fingers stumbled with the guitar strings. You were cleaning up his work room, because he hardly ever did that and somehow it drove you crazy that he had to work in a messy environment like that. You stepped behind him and held his hands, preventing them from going at it with the guitar again. “It’s good. Don’t overthink it. You’re far more talented than you give yourself credit for.” Lay huffed and leaned into your embrace, allowing himself a moment of solace in the hurricane that was his life.

Chen: You were busy watching a fancam online of Chen’s concert in LA and you couldn’t help but feel your heart constrict at the sight of him crying during his part in Promise. You wanted to be there to comfort him but you knew that words did little to him in that moment. The bond that Exo shared with their fans wasn’t something you could comfort them over. It was a different kind of love, very different from what they shared with their girlfriend or their family or their members. You decided all you could do was send a text-

Y/N: You did well honey. Very well. You know I’m proud of you yeah? And I love you for reasons besides your voice and your cheekbones. You are so much more.

5 HRS LATER…

Chen: I love you. Thank you for saying that.

It was a clipped message but you knew it meant far more for him too.

Tao: You were climbing into bed after freshening up when you saw Tao with tears glistening in his eyes. He was flipping through pictures of his family back home. Though he was in the same country as them, it was still hard to be away from them and you knew how much his work demanded of him. You were thankful for every minute that he chose to spend with you when he could just go home. Without any words, You wrapped your fingers together and pulled up a book and started reading it. This wasn’t a moment for you to smother him, he needed his time to miss them. A few minutes later, you felt his fingers tighten around yours and you knew it was enough to just be around him.


AHH THAT WAS LONG. I hope you like it nonnie!

ProTip #47: Balance a book on your head

When studying for hours on end, or sitting at a desk for hours on end, it’s natural to end up tired, hunched over the desk, and have a horrible crick in your neck at the end of the day. Plus, you can end up with some medical issues from poor posture over the years!

To stave this off, sit with your back straight (pretend you’re balancing something on your head) and your head only slightly tilted downward, and drink a lot of cold water. This will help you breath deeper, stay hydrated, and consequently keep you more alert.

Ways to help with posture:

  • put a tape marker over the spot where you USUALLY end up hunched over your desk; this will remind you to not stray from your posture
  • tape a reminder to your computer/lamp/cubby: “sit up STRAIGHT” usually works for me

Get things UP and to your eye level:

  • an old shoebox as a computer stand
  • a stack of old textbooks as a computer stand
  • bookstands can be very cheap, save space, and prevent you from hunching over your textbooks!

Ways to stay hydrated:

  • put fruit in your water (I like cucumbers & citrus)
  • keep (unsweetened) pre-prepared tea on hand
  • put a checklist of how much water you drank today (half your body weight in ounces is good!)
  • put reminders in your work space (post its are good and don’t cause any residual stickiness)
