My Everything

So for some reason, my cold dead heart felt kind of sappy tonight and this little valentines piece was born. Always use a condom when thinking of your OTP, or smushy crap like this happens.

SUMMARY: Killian is surprised at what awaits him when he gets home. Set during S6.

Killian made his way across the darkening front lawn of their home and jogged up the steps, tucking the large bouquet of roses into his left elbow so he could fish his key from out of his pocket.

Emma had insisted he not make a fuss today; she was adamant she didn’t want any surprises or grand gestures. It had him feeling slightly disheartened that she wouldn’t want him to shower her with affection on a day made for love, but he’d kept to his promise… well, almost. He’d still bought the finest roses Mo had to offer, and had a velvet box containing a pair of silver and opal earrings. He’d spotted Emma glancing at them as they walked around town one day and knew he wanted to get them for her. He couldn’t let the day go by without giving her anything.

He wasn’t that type of man.

He found it odd that there was barely any light coming from inside. The sun had only just set and it was far too early for Emma to be in bed already.

He got the front door opened and stepped inside cautiously, wondering why it was so dark.

The first thing he saw was the scattered rose petals that decorated the floor and the stairs. The second thing he became aware of was the warm orange glow radiating from various candles from within the living area.

The third and final sight he glanced upon was Emma, standing by the roaring fireplace, wringing her hands together as she smiled at him nervously.

“Emma? What’s all this?” He asked, surprised at the set up before him.

She smiled and held her hand out, gesturing for him to join her.

Visual guide to the Five Main Types of Opal

White or light opal: Translucent to semitranslucent, with play-of-color against a white or light gray background color.

Black opal: Translucent to opaque, with play-of-color against a black or other dark background.

Fire opal: Transparent to translucent, with brown, yellow, orange, or red bodycolor. This material—which often doesn’t show play-of-color—is also known as “Mexican opal.”

Boulder opal: Translucent to opaque, with play-of-color against a light to dark background. Fragments of the surrounding rock, called matrix, become part of the finished gem.

Crystal or water opal: Transparent to semitransparent, with a clear background. This type shows exceptional play-of-color.

Okay, so I was just doing some light research on black opals, and found out something VERY interesting.

Opal is the birthstone for October, but so is pink tourmaline.

Little bit more of a search; black opals used to be associated with good luck but are now majorly associated with death and bad luck (and the evil eye), WHEREAS, pink tourmaline is all about cleansing negativity and depression.

SO, maybe there’s a reason that Lucas’s lab was specifically turning into pink tourmaline. Maybe in response to the coming of The Hunger?

The Number 13

Some people might tell you that the number 13 is unlucky.

But for Jimin and Jungkook, it’s way more.

Jungkook’s birthday is on the 1st of Sept.
Jimin’s birthday is on the 13th of Oct.

As you may know, JK’s fav number is 1 and JM’s is 3 and they use it for multiple things (shirts, games, events)

And most of you know,
1 and 3 = 13

Concidence? Probably.


Jungkook is the youngest (1)

Jimin is the 3rd youngest (3)

1 and 3 = 13

(wow again?)

J I M I N = 5 letters

J U N G K O O K = 8 Letters

5 + 8 = 13

(sounds more like fate to me ;)

Jimin and Jungkook also wear their birthday numbers often,

Take this ( for example,

And sometimes, other numbers such as 1 and 3 for the BTS Home Party (insert cute jikook heart)

And sometimes JK just wears a number, that other people might not know the reason of him wearing it for.
(but we know ;)

Take the BTS baseball event thing (idk what to call it lol)
for example, other members wore b-days on their jerseys or whatever and Jimin (again) wore 13

Jungkook wore 58…for some reason

But we know why ;) , 5 + 8 = 13

Also people brought up that he wanted to be called Oppa, because 5 and 8 sound in Korean (sino) like o and pal.
Which actually together is opal, which is the birthstone of October..


But I’m not done yet ;) (too many winky faces in this post)

Bon Voyage S2 has been a blessing for many jikook shippers and the ep with their date had a little piece of fate.

When they were in the airport chosing who they would be with in the top coner you can see they were in Gate 58.


Also in ep 4 when they were matching their items JK picked the order in which they picked.

Putting himself 1st and guess what? Jimin 3rd.


And just one more point.

Episode 5 was the jikook date, so not gonna asume but like if episode 8 has some good dang jikook moments idk what i’ll think anymore.

So in conclusion, (this sounds like a presentation) no matter what anyone says the number 13 has some special meaning in regards to jikook, and for shippers the only thing we have associated with 13 is Jimin’s birthday (unless im missing something) but to JM and JK it might be an aniversary or a personal thing or something we might not even know of but for now, we know that 13 means SOMETHING to them.

(End note: if you have anymore “13” concidences feel free to say them cuz it makes it more freaky lol)

(2nd Note: I probably wrote concidences wrong this whole time so don’t judge me)

Serendipity and Jungkook & Jimin

Serendipity screams JiKook/KookMin to me! The lyrics fit their story so well. Plus, it speaks of things being destined from the beginning, and just look at these curious things that connect them:

- both from Busan

- matching moles (forehead, neck, collarbone)

- 2 year gap sibling for each (hyung for Jungkook and dongsaeng for Jimin) and both have “hyun” in their names

- both dancer and vocals

- Jungkook baseball jersey no: 58, Jimin baseball jersey no: 13, 5+8=13, 58 > 5(오 - o ), 8(팔 - pal) > opal = October birthstone > Jimin’s birthday: Oct 13

- in BV2, they became partners after picking numbers, which took place at Gate 58

I’m sure some of you can add more. ^^,
