Not enough people were paying attention to Jared. This was a thought that passed through Jared’s mind often, not that he was an attention seeker or anything, but he needed to be paid attention to at all times. Unfortunately at this moment no one was paying attention to him. Connor and Evan were off in their own world, as they often were, while Alana and Zoe were consumed by some information from their shared class. This happened every time they went to the mall, but for some reason Jared always insisted on accompanying the two happy couples.
All of these factors were part of the reason Jared was now on his way to the lush store. He knew he was going to do something ridiculous to get attention and honestly he was pretty happy about that.
“Stupid couples always being in love,” Jared grumbled to himself as he crossed the mall’s courtyard and stole a look back at his friends. Evan and Connor were sitting on a bench. Connor was slouching back against the bench, Evan was leaning towards him slightly. They both had small half smiles and eyes for only each other. Alana and Zoe were standing and peering down at Zoe’s phone, occasionally stealing glances at each other.
God! Would they just get together already? Jared thought to himself, rolling his eyes and turning forward again.
He entered the lush store and inhaled the mix of scents. An evil smirk graced his lips as he began to browse the bathbomb selection. A quick glance around revealed that no one was looking so he quickly pocketed several before moving on. It didn’t take him too long to find the perfect item for his plan. He approached the checkout and respectfully paid for the item before bagging it and moving on, not even feeling guilty about the illegal merchandise in his pockets.
Jared found his friends exactly as he left them, he stood before them and cleared his throat, “Do you guys want me to get you something to eat?”
“Yeah, you’re not touching mine or Evan’s food…” Connor eyed Jared skeptically while wrapping an arm around Evan and pulling him slightly close. This caused a bright blush to spread over Evan’s cheeks while he nodded, agreeing with Connor. Jared pouted.
“I’m just trying to be nice to you gay f*cks!”
Zoe turned to Alana, completely ignoring Jared, “I am actually hungry, I can get something for us if you’d like?” The two began to discuss their dining options while Evan and Connor did the same.
“Fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnneeeeeeee I’ll just go get a table!” Jared stormed off and found an empty table with the desired number of seats then plopped down and rested his head on his hands angrily. It’s ok, I’ll have the spotlight soon enough. Jared assured himself as he waited for his friends to return.
A few minutes after everyone returned Evan peered over at Jared, “Where’s your food,”
Jared grinned and Evan seemed to realize instantly that he had made a mistake. Jared pulled out the pink and purple bath bomb he had purchased from Lush and began to unwrap it. The others watched in silent horror as Jared ate the entire thing.
“It doesn’t have to end like this” your whispered.
Sherlock was looking away. He didn’t answer anything.
“Sherlock, you’re my friend”
“I thought we could become more than that” he whispered.
And with that said, he put up the collar of his coat, turned around and left.
You were a simple person, living an ordinary life, but for Sherlock, you were everything but ordinary. You had this special way of smiling and everything gets lighten up whenever you would look at him. The small touches he had received from you had felt like the most intimate contact. He could stared at you for hours and never get bored. He used to do that when he knew you couldn’t notice.
He had protected you since he met you, since you were the first one to ever call him friend, to treat him with respect and not mock him for his peculiar personality. He loved your laugh, your cleverness, the joy you had brought to his life, and how you’d always come to the flat in your bad days. He liked the thought of how he could make you feel better.
Sherlock would laugh at your stupid jokes about him and John being a couple and how you’d encourage them to get married. He never thought there was such a beauty in the world until the day he saw you in John and Mary’s wedding, wearing the graceful lilac dress Mary had picked for the bridesmaids. You were astonishing and he couldn’t looked away from you the whole night. The feeling of having you so close while dancing made him realized what he had been trying to deny for so long: he had fallen in love with you.
So he decided to give the next step, to do what normal people do and ask you out on a… how did John had called them?, oh yes, a date.
So here he was, in front of your flat, waiting for you to open the door. When you opened, he felt so sorry. It was so obvious that you had been sleeping.
“Oh, did I wake you?” he asked, concerned.
“Not really, I was watching Netflix and, you know, chilling” you joked.
Sherlock smiled brightly. You invited him in and you both walked towards the living room.
“So… what you need me for?” you asked with a smile. He looked at you confused. “Are you getting me out in the middle of the night to go and solve a case?”
“No” he answered.
He decided it was his moment, he had to do it now. It was now or never.
“I was actually planning to get you out…” he doubted, but kept on talking “… to get you out on a date… with me… if you want”
He finally looked at you directly in the eyes and your gazes met. His hands were fists inside of the pockets of his coat. He could feel his whole body trembling.
You looked away. There were so many things going through your mind right now. Oh, no, breathe, (Y/N), just breathe. Just say it.
“Sherlock…I…” you started “I… I can’t”
“Why not?” he asked, trying to keep a slight smile. He was panicking in the inside.
“Because you are my friend” you stated.
“Oh” that was the only thing he said.
You were looking at him and feeling miserable. You didn’t want to do it, but you knew you had to, sooner or later. You had noticed his change of attitude towards you and since then, you had been just hoping that he’ll never ask, that he’ll never take the next step. Because you didn’t want to do this, you didn’t want to reject him.
what you stupid ungrateful boys out there should know is that the girl who tolerates the shit you give her, listen to your stupid rants, chooses what’s right for you, loyal af, tries to make you the happiest and is down af for you and only you, doesn’t wanna hear about the ex you’ve been skyping with or the fucking idea of you being with someone else ok do u fucking get it
I have a very low tolerance for bs and looking-to-start-crap anon messages right now, like… death anniversary of my dad on the 11th, 3rd death anniversary of my great-grandmother on the 10th, and my girlfriend’s grandmother passed away a few days ago, there’s arguably a lot of stress in our household atm, so I have neither the patience nor energy for drama and nonsense, let me be a whiny anxious ball on my little corner of the internet and if you don’t like it, no one’s making you stay
Imagine being Joker and Harley's child and being home schooled by Jonathan Crane and Edward Nygma
Harley asked Edward and Jonathan to home school you. Perhaps it was her inner Harleen showing. Either way the two reluctantly agreed thinking you, being the Joker and Harley Quinn’s child, would be stupid. The crazy couple didn’t seem smart, more instinctual and reckless despite Harleen’s doctorate.
You seemed to get on quite well. You paid attention, and did your best. Jonathan pushed you academically more than Edward did. Edward protested many times. “They are too young for the level of knowledge! Stick to their age group.”
You surprised them both when you caught on faster than they thought. You linked what you had learned to life situations making the two men literally take a step back. “This is probably the smartest thing I have heard them say.” Edward said as Jonathan nodded. “You’re smart.” Jonathan stated. “You’re very smart for a child your age.”
“Do they know?” Edward asked Jonathan referring to Joker and Harley.
“I can’t be sure but we didn’t.”
•The 3 day juicing stuff gets here today, I’ll start it tomorrow.
•I’m feeling really crappy this morning. Cramps and I feel like I’m going to be sick. I have to be at work in 1 hour. Currently I’m in bed with a heating pad and smoking. I normally don’t before work, but midol isn’t helping at all. I wish I could order cannabis rub for the endometriosis, I hear it helps a lot.
•I was thinking about downloading okc again, but didn’t. I’m not talking to any guys at all. Sometimes it’s sucks not having a constant person to talk to. I mean, there are guys I talk to regularly but for whatever reason it will never go past that.
•I have that feeling where having a good cry will make you feel better. That’s not common for me, so I’ll chalk it up to the fact my body is being stupid the next couple days.
•Now I’m just whining so I’ll shut up
“I still can’t believe you’ve tricked me yet again into coming to one of these things,” you muttered bitterly as the limo slowed to a stop in front of the red carpet entrance. “Don’t you ever get sick of being mean to me, Evans?” You narrowed your eyes at him and he chuckled. “You know- one day, I am going to say enough and walk out on you.”
“I’ve got legs, I can always chase after you.” Chris responded with a charming smile; your stomach fluttered. “And I didn’t trick you, you offered. You always offer,” he reminded you and you glared at him. “After- of course-” he suppressed his handsomely smug smile, “the round of drinks I always buy you.”
“I should know by now that you are never that generous for no reason,” you bit back your smile as you pretended to scowl at him. “That’s the last time you’ll fool me, Evans.” You told him and he chuckled because he knew it wasn’t true. “I am never drinking with you again.”
“I’m sure we can agree to disagree on that.”
You rolled your eyes at him then turned to look out the window. The angst build in the pit of your stomach when you saw the hundreds and thousands of people waiting to catch a glimpse of the arrival of A-List celebrities like your best friend, Chris Evans. You didn’t want to be there, you never wanted to be at any of the events he took you to- unless it was a MCU event where you could meet the rest of the MCU cast- but you went each time, letting him think he ‘tricked’ you into going because you enjoyed spending time with him. The truth was that you were in-love with your best friend.
“Can you do me a favor and not say anything stupid this time?” You told Chris as the two of you got ready to get out of the limo. He raised an eyebrow for you to elaborate, “I’m talking about the dumb couple jokes. I don’t want to trend on the internet or get hate messages from your fans because you act like we’re a couple when- we’re just friends.”
“Ouch,” he chuckled. “Are you friend-zoning me, Y/N Y/L/N?” He quizzed and you rolled your eyes with an indifferent attitude even though you were screaming ‘no’ on the inside. “I wish I could but- I like the way you smile when I tell my stupid couple jokes.”
“Chris, I’m being serious,” you warned.
“So am I,” he smiled and you heaved a sigh. “C'mon.” He took your hand, and sparks flew as he pulled you out of the limo with him. The cameras flashed as the paparazzi, fans, and reporters called your names; you were a nobody but you’d been to too many of these things with Chris for them not to know you. “Just smile and breathe,” he whispered into your ear, letting go of your hand to touch the small of your back.
You ignored the tingles his touch was sending through your spine and quipped, “I know what to do. You’ve tricked me into coming to these things enough, I might as well be a regular.” You heard him chuckle softly in response as the two of you made your way down the long carpet.
“Chris Evans! Y/N Y/L/N! Over here!”
“Chris! Y/N! Over here, look over here!”
“Look over here, please! Yes, on your right!”
“I don’t know how you do this all day,” you murmured to Chris while smiling for the cameras. “Don’t you feel like your smile becomes less genuine with each shot?” You quizzed and he laughed. “No, seriously though-” you stifled your own laughter, glancing up at him. “It’s only been a few minutes and I can feel myself faking it already.”
“Let me help with that,” he said then whispered in your ear. “You look really beautiful tonight, Y/N.” You felt your smile reach your eyes as your cheeks heated up. “See,” he smiled, “you’re back to the natural, heart-stopping smile I know you have.”
“Thanks,” you chuckled softly.
“You’re very welcome,” he chuckled softly.
“Over here, please! Look here!”
“Just look over here! To your left!”
“Another one, yes! Just one more!”
You and Chris continued following the representative down the carpet, smiling left, right, and centre for the cameras. Occasionally you were asked to stand aside so they could have single shots of Chris- which you understood and didn’t mind, what you didn’t understand was why he kept glancing at you with a love sick smile on his lips. The truth that you didn’t know was that he too, was in-love with his best friend.
“You ready for some interviews?” Chris asked when you returned to his side.
“I think that’s my question for you,” you chuckled. “I am not the famous one here.”
“Someone’s gotta keep me grounded, right?” He smiled and slipped his hand into yours, leading you towards the interview; her badge told you that she was from TMZ. “What’s the bet that her first question will be about our relationship?” He whispered into your ear.
“If you don’t want her to question our relationship,” you chuckled, “stop taking me to these things.”
“I didn’t say I don’t want her to, I’m just saying what’s the bet?” He asked and you rolled your eyes.
“Hi Chris!” The interviewer greeted him then smiled at you. “It is really good to see you here, and with such a beautiful date, Y/N right?” She asked and you nodded. “It looks like you’re his permanent date to all his red carpet events now, does that mean Captain America is off the market?” She asked and Chris squeezed your hand, alerting you that he won the bet that you didn’t even agree to.
“Chris and I are actually just friends,” you told her.
“Oh, I see-” the interviewer began but Chris interrupted.
“Well, actually,” he said and you felt your eyes narrowed as you turned to him. “Y/N is my best friend whom I’d be more than lucky to date if ever she gives me a chance.” He turned to you and smiled, creating more butterflies in your stomach as you tried to process his words. “She’s my permanent date 'cause I wouldn’t want to do this with anyone else.”
“Ohhh,” the interviewer said with a knowing smile then turned to a slightly lost you. “Y/N, I think Chris wants something more with you. Would you ever consider dating him or- are you fine with just friends?” She asked and waited for an answer, but you pulled Chris away before she could get one.
“If this is one of your couple jokes, it’s not very funny.”
“It’s not a joke,” he shook his head. “Look- I know it’s a stupid time to tell you this but- I’m in-love with you, Y/N, and I want to be with you for real. Why else do you think I’m always asking you to come with me to these events? I want to spend as much time as I can with you, in front of people so they can get used to us being together. So- you can get used to it,” he mumbled sheepishly. “I understand if you-”
Your lips were on his before he could finish.
“I’m in-love with you too,” you told him when you broke the kiss. The surprise and excitement on his face visible. “I’ve been wanting to tell you for so long now, I just didn’t want to ruin what we currently have.” You admitted and his smile grew. “But if you want to do this thing too then- I’m ready whenever you are.”
“You better be,” he chuckled as he gestured to the hundreds of cameras behind you. “'Cause I think as of a minute ago- we became official.”
* necklaces given to us at birth were half of a unique shape and your soul mate wore the other half and they got warmer the closer together you were and colder the farther away you were so you could go on a journey when you’re ready to find your other half.
A/N: Yes I wrote a soulmate au…I was really in the mood to write one of these. And yes, I found this prompt on Pinterest. But I hope you enjoy!
Word Count: 1,800
You didn’t know how science did it and frankly, you didn’t care. All you knew was at birth everyone is given a necklace with a strange and unique shaped charm. Your apparent soulmate had the other half of the shape. The charm is supposed to be warmer the closer you got to your soulmate and colder the further away you were.
You mother had yours in a small cedar box to ensure you didn’t lose it. She had explained the necklace before you started school. You wore yours at first, dreaming of finding your perfect match at a young age.
You made friends quickly. A young man who came from The Caribbean named Alexander Hamilton. A loud jokester named John Laurens. A man who moved to America after his family in France died who went by Lafayette. And Hercules, who looked intimidating but was really kindhearted.
Alexander always wore his necklace, as did John. However, Hercules said his mother wouldn’t let him have his until he was at least 13, something about unrealistic expectations.
These stupid necklaces were meant to make life easier for people. Still, you stopped wearing yours in the 2nd grade, when your best friend learned her soul mate was your crush. A devastated 7 year-old, you tossed the necklace back in cedar box and left it there.
Years later, after school and college both, you were lucky to stay in the same area as your friends. They all started working under a man named George Washington, who was hosting a party tonight.
OKAY but bnha tumblr talk to me about HAPPY LOVING POLY RELATIONSHIP. I love kacchako. I love bakushima. Put them together and you have URAKIRIBAKU SUCH A WONDERFUL OT3
Uraraka and Bakugou start going out their second year. Kirishima is super happy for them bc Uraraka is such an amazing girl and she’s great for Bakugou! He does his best to bury his Big Crush TM on Bakugou bc nothing good will come out of harboring it.
By their third year Bakugou has started realizing he kinda has a thing for his best friend but he’s an emotionally stunted dumbass that doesn’t know how to deal with it.
Uraraka finds it REALLY amusing how Bakugou has no idea how to handle his burgeoning feelings and thoughts about Kirishima. And it’s so obvious to at least her how he’s struggling with this. When she thinks about it, she realizes she honestly has no problem with Bakugou liking Kirishima too. In fact, she really starts to like the idea. Why wouldn’t she? Kirishima is such a nice and sweet guy and he’s liked Bakugou for years.
She brings up the prospect of a poly relationship with Kirishima first, wanting to know how he feels about it before talking to Bakugou. Bc Bakugou is impossible to have reasonable conversations with about ~emotions~
Kirishima literally brought to tears he can’t believe how amazing Uraraka is and how she is welcome to the idea of sharing Bakugou? And like holy shit he’s always known she was amazing but this just takes the cake! But then… “Uraraka how can you be sure Bakugou is going to be okay with the idea?!” And she just deadpans bc cmon Kirishima he is VERY clearly struggling with a crush on you.
They approach Bakugou with the proposition and he thinks they’re messing with him. Because he may think he’s god’s gift to the world, but he knows he’s the biggest asshole ever. And there is now way there are two people that are in love with him NO WAY. But Kirishima and Uraraka are 100% serious and Bakugou just SHORT CIRCUITS BC HOLY SHIT THIS HAS TO BE A DREAM WORLD
Bakugou and Kirishima being stupid cute in their new couple days and Kirishima is relentless in teasing Bakugou bc he gets flustered with cute sappy affections. And then Kirishima and Uraraka tag team to make Bakugou literally explode.
Kirishima and Uraraka slowly getting closer with each other. Bakugou isn’t the most open with his affections and Kirishima and Uraraka are both big cuddlebugs. They love snuggling together and holding hands and cute lil platonic smooches.
Urakiri playing pranks on Bakugou and teasing him and sneaking cute smooches on his cheeks so he flushes bright red and they run away laughing
Bakugou constantly flanked by two radiant rays of sunshine at all times. Bright sweet Uraraka on one side and shining happy Kirishima on the other. Even while glaring with his usual angry grumpy demeanor he looks so much happier with them next to him.
Kirishima having a bi-crisis bc he’s always thought he was gay as shit bc he’s never been too attracted to girls? Just always had an appreciation for the female form. But then Uraraka makes him feel like a 14 year old again and he’s a big shy baby about it
Uraraka super patient and loving with him and thinks he’s adorable and is so so delighted that Kiri wants her as much as he wants Bakugou bc how could she not already have started falling for him too?
Bakugou secretly really happy when Urakiri become romantic bc it finally seems like this can be something that’s going to last and they’re going to make it together in a relationship
