You have been really good friends with the Mikaelsons for about a year now. Rebekah is like the sister you’ve never had, Klaus and Elijah are like brothers to you while Kol is a little bit of the opposite. The both of you flirt here and there, but you’ve never seen each other being a couple.
It was a quarter to 11. You and the youngest Mikaelson brother are the only ones home, god knows where the rest of his siblings went. The two of you were bored so you decided to drink and play billiards. Of course you were losing because you’re terrible at this game. “Gosh Kol, you could’ve at least gone easy on me. I’m a girl.” You scoffed playfully.
“Perhaps not, Y/N.” Kol smiled. He noticed your glass is empty, so he took it and refilled it for you. “Time for another.”
His glass now being in one hand and yours in the other, he handed you yours. “T-thanks Kol.” You stuttered from being a little tipsy.
“Tsk Tsk. Someone’s a lightweight.” Kol teased. then he clanked his glass to yours to cheers.
After chugging your drink, you picked up your pool cue, knowing that your turn is next. You positioned your body with the cue to the spot that you believed that was appropriate to hit. But the alcohol was getting to your system and right before you hit it, you stopped yourself, by quickly standing up, holding the cue vertically. “Actually, Kol. I’m bored of this already.”
Kol laughed then started walking towards you, with drink in hand. “Is it because you’re losing, darling? Oh don’t be such a sore loser.”
Without thinking, you attempted to hit Kol with the pool cue which only lead to failure. With Kol being the original vampire that he is, he has really quick reflexes so he stopped it with his hand. He didn’t take it personal since he knew you’re only playing around and you both know it won’t hurt him at all. “Easy there, human.” Kol cooed.
You laughed from your failure. “I tried. I tried.”
Kol showed off his height by inching up closer to you, looking down on you. “You really think you’re a match against a 1000 year old vampire?” Kol questioned, then softened up his voice. “Funny.”
You didn’t know if the alcohol was getting to your system or if Kol Mikaelson looked so hot right now. It must be the alcohol. Never did it cross your mind before about ever screwing him. The alcohol must be getting to him because he was getting way too close for comfort right now, making your breaths deeper and his following suit. He cupped your cheek with his hand, lightly rubbing his thumb on your bottom lip. The both of you kept looking back and forth at each others eyes and lips.
“Are you thinking what I’m thinking?” Kol asked, now keeping his eyes focused your eyes instead.
“I mean, no one’s home so….” You replied.
Now Kol locks his lips with yours. The two of you swirling each others tongues in and out. He lifts you up and carries you to the pool table, not losing contact with each others lips.
Kol removes your top and you copy him by helping remove his. He brushes his hands along your sides as he kisses on your neck, making you let out a groan. “We’re really doing this Kol.” You chuckled.
Kol stops and looks at you. “This may be a night filled with regrets or a night to remember.” He tapped your nose once and gave you a smirk before pushing your body down on the pool table.
(The following morning…)
It was noon-ish when you awoke. Your head was slightly spinning and you felt pretty dehydrated from the alcohol you consumed last night.
You sat up and slowly scanned your surroundings to see if you can remember anything from last night. The first thing you noticed is that you’re wearing a t-shirt that is a few sizes too big. Seeing that Kol is asleep next to you in bed shirtless, you assumed that it’s his. Now that’s when the memories of last night came back to you. “Ah shit.” You mouthed to yourself.
Yup, you had sex with Kol last night. Regret wasn’t what you felt, because you do remember the drunk sex being amazing, you were just a little embarrassed because you didn’t want Kol to think that anyone can get inside your pants when you’re drunk.
Seeing that the upper half of his body is without clothes, you were also curious to see if the lower half of him is too. Still sitting up, you lifted up the blanket to get a peek. And damn, that morning wood of his made your jaw drop. “Damn, Kol Mikaelson.” You said accidentally said aloud. From catching yourself, you held your lips together to stay silent, but it failed because you woke up Kol.
Kol yawned and stretched his arms. “Morning, Y/N.” He said with a raspy voice.
“I cannot believe that happened last night.”
“Well darling, I happen to have no regrets.”
“Oh my god, you must think I’m such a slut.” You whined, sinking yourself lower into the bed.
Kol chuckled. “Nonsense, Y/N. Not the slightest.” He got off of the bed to search for his clothes. “I happen to be thirsty, actually.”
Your eyes lit up at the thought of a nice cold glass of water. “Oh me too. Can you get me a glass of water too, please?”
Kol slid on his boxers, then grabbed his pants to put on next. “You’re quite funny. I wasn’t referring to water. But I’ll bring you back a glass.”
While you’re waiting on Kol to return with your water, you grabbed your phone from the nightstand to make sure you didn’t drunk text anyone or drunk post anything on social media.
Phew. You’re in the clear.
After a few minutes, Kol arrives and you chug that water like there’s no tomorrow. “Ah.” You said, rolling your eyes in the back of your head.
Kol grinned at you in amusement. “That was my bloody reaction when I got a hold of those blood bags just now.”
You hear Rebekah’s voice grow as she’s walking in. “Brunch is here if you’re hungry, Kol.” Seeing that you’re in Kol’s bed, her lips parted in surprise. “You two?” She questioned, with one hand of her hip and the other hand, pointing two fingers at you both.
“Uh…” Both you and Kol said, being speechless.
“Never mind that. Feel free to come down you two, if you’re hungry.” Rebekah quickly walked out.
For the next few days you couldn’t stop thinking about the night you slept with Kol. You don’t have any romantic feelings for him whatsoever, but the sex was great and you honestly wouldn’t mind doing it again. Plus, you’re not sleeping around with anyone else at the moment, so you don’t think there’s any harm if it’s with the same person again. Your plan was to confront Kol about it the next time you saw him.
Knocking on the door of the Mikaelson’s home, Klaus opened the door with a smile. “Fancying seeing you, love. Let me guess-” He glanced up while pointing his index finger up as if he was thinking. “-you’re looking for Kol?”
Well damn. Klaus knows about it too. You figured Rebekah told him after she saw you in Kol’s bed. “Very funny, Klaus. And yes I am.” You walked inside, not caring to wait for an invitation inside. “Where is he?”
“He’s here. In his room, i assume.” Klaus replied.
You made your way to Kol’s bedroom, but saw that he wasn’t in there so you just made yourself comfortable in his bed while you waited.
After 10 minutes, Kol entered the room with a towel wrapped around his waist. Your presence startled him, making him jump. “Bloody hell, Y/N. You frightened the hell out of me.”
“We need to talk about something.” You sat at the edge of the bed and patted your hand on the mattress for Kol to sit down.
“About?” He questioned.
“Don’t worry, it’s not bad. Actually. It’s good. Maybe?” You questioned your statement a bit because it was good for you, but you weren’t exactly confident if it’s a positive thing for him. So to the hell with it.
“Alright, darling. Spit it out.”
“So I have this idea. First off, we’re both adults here. You know, you’re hot and I’m hot.” You pointed at Kol, then back at yourself. “You’re single and I’m single. I also know that we’re both not looking for a relationship, nor are we sleeping with anyone else.” Being good friends with Kol, you’re definitely confident that he isn’t sleeping with anyone else because he practically tells you everything.
“Ah, I see where you’re headed with this. So you want to be, what do the Americans call it?” Kol paused to think. “Oh that’s right. Fuck buddies. Am I correct?”
“Yeah.” You laughed at Kol. “Or a classier name would be: friends with benefits.”
“Brilliant.” Kol agrees with your idea. “So you think I’m hot?” He joked with a smirk on his face and you rolled your eyes at his cockiness.
“But. There has to be rules involved. We have to vow not to let ourselves gain feelings for the other. And, if one of us wants to cut it off for whatever reason, the other has to agree.”
Kol cuts you off. “So technically, this friends with benefits thing starts like now now?”
“Yes?” You answered, tilting your head.
Kol stands up confidently in front of you, looking very eager. “Come on then. On your knees.” He put one hand on his hip and the other pointing his finger down at his crotch.
You chuckled while shaking your head in disagreement. “What? Are you serious?”
“Well darling, you’re the one that said. So come on, I want your mouth to work its magic again.”
You noticed his hard member poking through towel and thought ‘fuck it’. So you hopped off of the bed and obeyed Kol’s command.
And there it was. A month goes by and the vow that the two of you made did not go broken. It’s actually been pretty fun. There would be nights where the two of you would go out drinking together, which obviously led to fucking. Whether it be in his car, in the shower or in his bed.
But, there was a period where Kol’s siblings voiced their opinions to him about the thing that you two have.
Rebekah: “I’m just warning you Kol, this is going to end one way and one way only.”
Kol: “And how is that?”
Rebekah: “What if one of you ends up gaining feels and the other doesn’t feel the same? Someone is going to get hurt.”
Kol: “And that’s where you’re wrong, Rebekah. Y/N and I have a made our own vow to not allow that to happen.”
Rebekah: “Elijah, please tell me that what Kol and Y/N are doing is wrong.”
Elijah: “Rebekah, I believe our dear brother is quite old enough to make his own choices.”
Klaus: “What Elijah said. You know, to each their own.”
Today you’re going out for lunch with your girlfriends to catch up on the latest gossip. Elena and Caroline feel the same way that Rebekah does about this whole situation with you and Kol, but Bonnie is happy as long as you’re happy.
Since Klaus will be away for a week, he allowed you to take over his master bedroom in the meantime.
It was about two hours before the scheduled time to head out, so you hopped in the nice and steamy shower. Soaking up all that warmth made you want to stay in here for hours. You were rinsing off your conditioner as you’re getting lost in your thoughts, until all of a sudden it was interrupted. “What the hell, Kol?!” Being distracted by your thoughts, you didn’t see Kol come into the bathroom until he opened the shower door.
“May I join?” He asked, wearing nothing but boxers and jeans.
“Um no. I’m actually just finishing up. How did you even get in here?” You focused on rinsing whatever conditioner was remaining on your hair.
“Learn to lock the door, love.” Kol started unbuttoning and unzipping his jeans, letting his jeans fall to the floor. “How about a quickie then?” He smiled, revealing his teeth.
You rolled your eyes and turned off the shower. “No I have to hurry up and get ready.” You reached your arm out for Kol’s cue to hand you your towel, which he does willingly and you walked out to dry yourself off.
Kol removes his boxers and gets in the shower, moving the knob to turn it on. “Your loss.” He joked.

When Katsuki comes to St Petersburg, Yakov doesn’t think much of it.
He screams at Vitya, nonetheless, because he must be out of his mind to think he can coach and compete at the same time. He doesn’t tell him that in the privacy of his head, he thinks that if someone could do it, it would be him. That’s not necessary. Vitya already knows.
He prepares himself to coach another head, either way, and gazes seriously at Katsuki’s movements, evaluating.
The boy is undeniably good. A little rough at the edges, nerves frazzled, but good.
With a little regret, Yakov thinks he’ll have to start polishing his english again. But Katsuki speaks russian. Accented, but precise, he addresses the world with concentrated eyes and a blush on the bridge of his nose. (When asked, he tells him nervously that he’s taken online classes to learn russian since he was fourteen, and glances at Vitya like that’s something to do with him. Vitya smiles, squeals and tackles him to the ground, like that’s the most heartfelt love declaration he could receive. Later, Yakov learns that it is.)
Imagine Alec Lightwood wearing glasses. It barely ever happens, because he hates them and prefers lenses. It's usually on early weekend mornings, when his eyes are tired of wearing them for the whole week. Now imagine Alec spending his first free weekend at Magnus'. He gets up early, makes them coffee and sits shirtless in the kitchen, reading a newspaper when sun rises and the whole Brooklyn wakes up. Then Magnus, woken by Alec's absence in the bed, gets up and sees Alec like that.
Anon, I don’t know why you thought you would attack me that way. I’m a nice person and I’m like 17k% sure I don’t deserve this.
I’m also 17k% sure that Magnus would sit in front of Alec in the kitchen, chin propped in his hand, and stares until Alec can’t stand it anymore and just lowers the newspaper abruptly and blurts out, frowning, “What?”
And Magnus just smiles that sappy smile of his and gets up to pour himself a coffee, and he looks at Alec over his shoulder. “I like the glasses, that’s all.”
Alec just brings back the newspaper in front of his face to hide his blush, a small, crooked smile growing on his lips. Magnus walks around the table to slide his arms around his waist and press a kiss to his cheek.
“Don’t hide your gorgeousness from me, it would ruin my Sunday morning and a bad Sunday is bound to bring a disastrous week.”
Alec scoffs, rolls his eyes dramatically and tilts his head to plant a chaste kiss on his mouth. “And we don’t want that.”
Summary: A snapshot
into the life of Jung Hoseok and his cat hybrid (aka Y/N)
A/N: Always wanted
to write a Hybrid!au…so, here it is! Also, I got the title from the song by
“You smell weird.”
Hoseok stopped and turned towards you, blinking in surprise.
About an hour ago, you were sitting right next to him with
your head on his lap, eating the strawberries he put in a bowl for you. You
were quiet while watching TV as Hoseok shuffled with papers he had to get
through for his job’s upcoming project. The television was put on mute, so you
were just watching the characters on screen walk around and talk without any
words coming out of their mouths (Hoseok said he could finish his work in the
bedroom so he wouldn’t bother your TV time (he knows you enjoy a certain drama
that comes on at 8) but you decided spending time with him was better than some
drama you could watch again—but you wouldn’t tell him that). You would
occasionally rub your cheek against his leg and he would let his finger run
through your hair, stopping every now and then to put a paper to the side or
rub his knuckles behind your ears.
Everything was quiet. You were quiet the entire time—letting
out a purr every now and then when he scratched that particular spot behind your ears—and it was nice. He enjoyed
the domestic feeling that resonated throughout the apartment, bringing forth a
warm sensation that filled is stomach, making it completely full. Almost like
he had eaten a century’s worth of food.
It felt nice. Being with you was nice, and he wanted to stay
like this forever.
That is until you slowly removed yourself from his lap. He
didn’t pay much mind to it at first, simply allowing you to move so you could
go to the bathroom or get a drink or do whatever it was you needed to do, as
long as you came back into his lap quickly. But, you didn’t walk to the kitchen
or bathroom. He could still feel your presence beside him, staring at him.
Well, it felt more like glaring.
Than you spoke. And it wasn’t sweet like your strawberry
stained fingers. It wasn’t sugar coated. It was blunt and straight to the
point, just like most things you said (but he liked that about you). You just
straight out and said what was on your mind, even if it might’ve been kind of
harsh. You didn’t come right out and say it, but Hoseok knew what you meant.
Hoseok, you stink.
He put his papers down and used his finger to adjust the
glasses that rested on the bridge of his nose before he spoke.
“I…I do?” he stuttered out, sounding confused and a
little offended. You usually enjoyed his scent. Well, at least he thought you
Once his glasses were in place, he could see the way your
eyes bore into his, glaring at him. You sat on your knees with your hands
clinched on your lap, and your tail swayed side to side vigorously.
Were you angry?
You were wearing his oversized white t-shirt (the one that
fell off your shoulder, exposing your smooth skin), and it kind of distracted
him from the situation at the moment. Hoseok loved your skin. It was similar to
silk with how much he wanted to constantly touch it; to feel how soft it is.
You weren’t wearing any pants either. Probably just shorts that were being
covered by the shirt. Or maybe you were only wearing your underwear underneath.
Or…or maybe you weren’t wearing anything underneath. Nothing at all. Just
the thought made a chill run down his spine.
He felt the need to touch you now, but he remembered the
sharp gaze you had on him and he thought maybe now wasn’t the best time for
He really wanted to, though.
Hoseok brought his gaze back to your eyes and, indeed, you
were still glaring at him and your tail was still moving around anxiously. You
must’ve been waiting for a better response than the one he just gave you, but
you broke the silence before he could say anything else.
“Yes. You smell weird,” you said as you shifted your eyes to
the side for a second, only to bring them back to Hoseok’s. “You smell kind of.
Hoseok took his glasses off and put them on the coffee table
before leaning his back against the couch, never breaking eye contact with you.
“Well, what do I smell like?”
The question made you snap your head up at him, looking into
his sleepy eyes, and crawl over to him slowly. You brought your face close to
his, your nose touching his, and you stared at him for a while, admiring his
features, before dropping your head down to nose at his neck. You took a deep
breath, and began running your nose down his neck to his shoulder. You inhaled
and then rubbed your cheek against his shoulder until you’ve had enough and
used your nose to trace your way to the dip in the middle of his neck.
You continued to nose at the exposed skin around his neck
and shoulder, pulling down the strap to his white beater to expose more of him.
Hoseok softly smiled and wrapped his arms around your waist to hoist you onto
his lap. Once you were straddling him, still smelling and scenting him, Hoseok
ran his hands up and down your bare thighs, sighing at the warmth of your skin.
He moved his right hand up to your hips, moving the fabric of the shirt with
him to feel more of you. He kept moving his hand up until his palm was on your
back, his thumb gently rubbing circles into the skin.
He closed his eyes, and enjoyed the moment while it lasted. (You
were wearing the baby blue underwear that had small pink hearts everywhere).
Eventually, you removed your face from his neck with your
nose scrunched up. “You smell fruity. Like some perfume,” you said with a
little sniff. “really strong perfume.”
Hoseok opened his eyes and looked at you. “Really?”
You nodded. God, he’s
“That’s strange. You know I don’t where any cologne usually
or body spray.” He knew you liked his natural scent more than of those
artificial flavors people envelope their body in.
But he wasn’t prepared for what you said to him next.
“Were you with a woman?”
Hoseok’s head snapped up, his eyes looking directly into
yours. You were expressionless. Not upset, not sad, not anything. Your face was
completely blank. If he had to name one thing he didn’t personally care for
about you (which was difficult because he literally loved everything about you), it would have to be this face that he could
never read or decipher. It made understanding you quite difficult; especially
when he first brought you home.
“A woman?” he questioned with a frown. “Y/N, you know I work
with other women at my job. Maybe one of them brushed up against me while they
were walking by or something like that.”
That was a lie. He was with a woman at work. Well, not in that type of context. While assisting an
associate with a bug on her computer, she was leaning pretty close against him,
having her chest a little too close to his shoulders. Once he was able to fix the
problem, she showed her gratitude by running her hand along his bicep with a
flirtatious smirk. He felt extremely uncomfortable and quickly took his leave
before anything escalated. He didn’t think much of the encounter since he
didn’t feel much from it—just discomfort.
You didn’t have anything to worry about, since he only saw
you, but he felt the need to ease your suspicion, so he wrapped his arms around
you more and place his face in the crook of your neck.
“Besides, I don’t have the time or the urge for anyone else.
It’s only you. It’ll always be you.” Now it was Hoseok’s turn to run his nose
along your neck, letting it run along your jawline, knowing it always made you
There was only you, and there would always only be you. Only you-
“I don’t believe you.”
Hoseok’s entire body froze and the hold on your waist
loosen. He removed his face from your neck only to see your catlike eyes
glaring at him once again before removing yourself from his hold and walking
out of the room.
Hoseok sat on the couch for a moment, dumbfounded by your
comment, until he heard the slam of a door making him jump up and shuffle
towards your bedroom door. As soon as he was in front of your door he gave a
slight knock, requesting your permission to enter.
He knocked a second time.
No one answers.
He gives a third knock and, with another no answer, he knows
you were going to be ignoring him for a while. You only did that when you
weren’t in the mood to argue. Ignoring him meant you weren’t angry, but far
from happy as well. He let out a defeated sigh before reaching for the doorknob
and gripping it. Hoseok could easily walk into your room and make you give him
your attention, but he knew that would just be invading your privacy. You never
locked your door. You didn’t, because you never had a reason to. He respected
you. You were of value. His equal. So, if you wanted time to yourself, he would
grant that to you. You didn’t have to lock the door to get away from him
because he would already know what mood you’re in to know what you want. And,
if that so happens to be away from him, then he would make himself give you
some time until you’re ready.
So, Hoseok releases his grip from your doorknob and slowly
walks away from your bedroom door, settling back on the couch to finish his
work; hoping you would feel generous enough to see him before he has to go to
Sometimes you wished Hoseok would just storm into your room,
and make you listen to him. He had every right to ask for an explanation from
you. And you knew there was no reason for you to be upset. It wasn’t that big
of a deal. He comes home smelling of other people most of the time since he
works at an office with like 15 other people. It was understandable that one of
them (even if it was a woman) might bump against him or get close to him.
It’s just…why did it have to be a woman? Why did it have
to be someone with such a strong smell? Why did she have to get so close that
you could smell her all over his body?
Hoseok was too nice for his own good. He always saw the good
in people and didn’t really like confrontation. That’s why whenever you both
did so happen to get into an argument, he would always give you time to calm
down whenever you stormed out. Afterwards, you would come out of your room and
he would be waiting for you, ready to cuddle with you and run his hands along
your tail. The issue is never really solved and it doesn’t get brought up
again. It’s not the best way to resolve a problem, of course, but it worked for
the both of you.
Well, except this time.
You didn’t feel like going back into the room and ignoring
the issue just so he could pet you and rub his hands along your body. Though
that did sound nice, you wanted to let him know that this isn’t going to be
solved with just a few gentle strokes. Hoseok needed to know that…
Hell. You didn’t even know what you wanted him to know,
honestly. You weren’t particular upset about the way he smelled. You just. .
.just wanted him to-
Shit. What the hell is
wrong with me?
You waited about two hours before deciding it was time to
leave your room. You tip toed to your door and leaned your ear against it,
wondering if Hoseok was still around.
You didn’t hear anything, so you quietly opened the door and
peeked your head out. Looking both ways and seeing that the close was clear,
you quietly walked towards the living room. The television was off and the room
was dark. Good. You weren’t really in the mood to talk to him right now. You
made your way to the kitchen and opened the fridge, seeing if there was
anything to snacks on before going back to your room. You settled some more
fruit—blackberries, blueberries, and more strawberries—grabbing a bowl and pour
them in together. You plucked a blackberry out the bowl and started putting the
containers back in the fridge.
Once you were done, all the food back in its place and about
to grab the bowl to head to your room, you felt two strong arms wrap around
your waist and hoisting you into the air. You let out a weak yelp and tried to
get out of the hold, but stopped once you heard a familiar voice.
“I’ve finally got you.” the voice chuckled against your ear
before placing a light peck behind the lobe. You immediately stopped moving and
allowed yourself to be carried bridal style in Hoseok’s arms as he made his way
to the living room. He sat on the couch, placing the bowl of fruit on the
coffee table and wrapping his warm arms around your waist so you won’t try to
(Even though you didn’t plan on leaving.)
You just sigh in frustration and cross your arms over your
chest, looking anywhere but at him.
“Hey,” Hoseok hums, kissing behind your ear again. “Hey,
come one. Look at me, Y/N. Please?”
You didn’t respond. Just kept your attention on the blank
television screen. Your tail swayed side to side, agitated.
Hoseok sighs. “Y/N, come one,” he buries his face into your
neck. “I…I’m sorry. I took a shower for you. Do I still smell like them?”
At that moment, you felt like complete shit. Hoseok
apologized, and he had no right to. It really, really wasn’t his fault, yet you made him feel as if it was. I really don’t deserve him.
Your ears began to flatten at the thought. Slowly, you
turned your body around to straddle him, and buried your face into his neck.
You took a deep, deep breath of his scent, and, the smell flowed through your
nose. His smell. The smell of citrus
and honey, but also the distinct smell of a man. You know, that musky smell.
You couldn’t get enough of it. It was so addicting. Hoseok, he was so addicting. You could stay cooped up
in his arms forever.
But, as you basked in the scent that is Hoseok, you could
still, very faintly, smell the fruit scent of some woman.
“Do I smell any better?” Hoseok broke the silence making you
snap out of your thoughts. You took another whiff before nodding your head.
That made him sigh in relief, pulling you more into his arms. He could place
his hands on your cheeks and lifted your head to meet his so he can place his
forehead on yours. “Good. Do you love me again?”
That made you frown. Love again? What was he talking about?
You’ll always love him. What kind of question is that? Why would he even think
about you not loving him? That’s ridiculous. It should be a crime to ask such a
question like that. Your ears straightened up and your tail began to move
around again. You pressed the palms of your hands on his cheeks as well and
lightly pressed your lips on his. When you pulled back, you could see the soft
smile and happiness that shone in his eyes.
“I never stopped, Hobi.”
Hoseok let out another sigh before burying his face in your
neck, tightening his arms around your waist again. “That’s good. I’m glad,” he
peppered light kisses along your neck and jawline. “So, glad.”
You began running your hands through his hair, burying your
nose in the strands. He washed it, and it smelled like the rose shampoo you
really liked. Your stopped moving your tail and laid it over his knee. You both
stayed like that for a little while, simply basking in each other’s scent.
Hoseok would continue to nudge your neck with his nose and leave random pecks
throughout the skin, while you buried your nose further into his hair and
occasionally rubbing your cheek and forehead against him. There was no sounds
this time. No papers rustling around; just the sound of you and Hoseok
breathing and the deep breaths you both took. It was perfect. He was perfect. You
both were perfect together.
You both finally broke apart once Hoseok yawned against your
(his) t-shirt, causing you to move back to look at him. His eyes were drooping
and he looked exhausted, yet he still managed to keep that lovely smile on his
face just for you.
“You should go to bed, Hobi.” You said as you began removing
yourself from his lap, but Hoseok gripped your waist to make you stay in place.
“No, not yet. Stay with me,” he leaned his back against the
couch, keeping eye contact with you. “Right here.” He gently lifts you and lays
you across his lap, grabbing the bowl of fruit afterwards. He picks up a
blackberry and holds it up against your mouth. You let the blackberry hit your
lips a bit before opening your mouth and eating the fruit from Hoseok’s hand.
He smiles and continues to place more fruit in front of your mouth for you to
“Hobi, you have to go to sleep. You have work in the morning
and I don’t want you to be late or tired when you get up.” You say even though
you’re still eating the fruit he holds in front of you.
“It’s fine. I want to spend more time with you before I go
to sleep.” He response and licks some of the juice on his thumb before grabbing
a strawberry from the bowl.
You pout. “But you’ll be tired in the morning.”
Hoseok chuckles. “But I want to be with you a little more.”
You feel your heart speed up and your tail start to find its
rhythm again. “But you could be late for work and Namjoon will be mad at you!”
“But I love you.”
And that’s it. Those three words cause you to forget how
speak and simply eat the strawberry from his fingers with your face the color
of the fruit. He won this round, I guess.
But, honestly, he somehow wins every round.
(You both eventually fall asleep on the couch, with you
lying on the couch and Hoseok on top of you, resting his head on your chest and
holding your intertwined fingers against his lips.
Hoseok’s alarm goes off at 7am, but neither of you hear it
since its charging in his bedroom, causing you both to wake up at 8am—thirty
minutes before he has to be at the office. You try to get him to hurry, but he
refuses, saying something about, “I don’t feel good!” and “You have to take

You try to make him leave, but he gives that really annoying
(annoyingly cute) puppy dog face causing you to give in and let Hoseok call
Namjoon about not being able to make it into work today.
From the other line, you could practically hear Namjoon

What if Optimus stayed all evil and brainwashed and took Cade away? Think of all the saucy and little dark stuff that could've happened with a possessive Optimus and a Cade that's willing to do ANYTHING to try and get him back to normal.
Not gonna lie, earlier today I thought to myself, “Man…I sure would like to see a fic or something in which Quintessa succeeds and the humans die/become slaves and she rewards Prime with a pet…”
Of course that pet is Cade, and of course she allows Prime to become his normal self just long enough for him to see all the “good” work that he had done before switching him back into Nemesis mode again…
SHIT. I’m sorry guys don’t worry I’ll give myself a timeout and a spanking for that terrible thing I just wrote HAHAHA
“In your hour of greatest need, you will find the power that you seek from the man wreathed in flames.“ - Paloma to Taako, Ep. 49
I believe when Paloma says “wreathed in flames”, she’s not talking about someone wearing a red robe, but rather covered in literal fire. Here’s why.
Many people have theorized that Barry is the “man wreathed in flames”. Cloaked in red, he led the boys out of Wonderland and exposed the truth about the BoB. However, I have a couple issues with this theory:
1. Although Barry offers knowledge and guidance, he hasn’t provided a “power” the boys seek.
2. While the boys were at a pretty low point back in the Wonderland arc, their current situation of the Hunger attacking the BoB is not great, and is probably more likely to be their “hour of greatest need”.
Unless Barry suddenly whips out a super-weapon from the pockets of those bluejeans, it’s doubtful he’s the one from Paloma’s prophecy. But if not Barry, who’s the “man wreathed in flames”?
I believe it’s Gundren Rockseeker.
Now, I know this theory has already been tossed around a bit. After all, Gundren might immediately come to mind at Paloma’s words, since Griffin described him as both “engulfed in flame” and a “dwarven fireball” after putting on the Phoenix Fire Gauntlet.
But there’s one problem. Gundren’s dead.Super dead. After emerging from the well, the boys find the gauntlet on the arm of “a burned out, blackened dwarven figure” that can only be Gundren.
However, Paloma never said the man had to be alive.
Don’t worry: I’m not about to theorize that Gundren turned into a lich or has powerful undead abilities. I’m pretty sure we’re not hearing any more from Gundren in TAZ (but honestly who knows with everything Griffin throws at us). So what “power” could a dead-as-a-door-nail dwarf possibly offer? The BoB has already confiscated the Gauntlet, after all.
I don’t believe the “power” is strength, but rather a certain ability. An ability to travel to the Hunger.
This builds upon the theory that the black glass of Phandalin’s remains is actually a portal to the Hunger. If you haven’t heard this theory before, here’s some background:
Back in Lucas’s lab, the boys see circular crystals that allow them to peer into different planes. According to Lucas, crystals that are “grown in a perfect circle” allow you to “see into” the plane it resonates with; however, it’s difficult to make these looking-glasses because “you can’t cut these gemstones to create these mirrors”. They must be natural, perfect.
What else has been described as both a mirror and a perfect circle? Phandalin. As the boys are sailing away from the remains of the frontier town, Griffin says Phandalin “almost serves as a giant, black mirror for the night sky above”. More importantly, when the boys are shown Phandalin by the Chalice during The Eleventh Hour, Griffin says the Gauntlet “reduces this city into a perfect circle of black glass”.
Further evidence can be found back in the lab. When the red robe appears to the boys during The Crystal Kingdom, he knocks over a can containing Lucas’s scrapped crystals. He then shows the boys a vision using one of the black crystals from the can: a black cloud with streaks of color (the Hunger) emerges from this crystal and begins consuming the other crystals. After the vision ends and the red robe disappears, Magnus takes a look at this black crystal and Griffin says the following:
“Standing over it you can actually see what look like white eyes looking back at you through this black mirror. And as they sort of make eye contact with you, these eyes quickly shut, and disappear.“
We all know by now that these white eyes belong to the Hunger. However, when asked about the black crystal, Lucas says, “That’s one made of black opal. Which is, I mean it’s inert, it doesn’t resonate with any planes.” Perhaps it doesn’t resonate with a plane, but rather with the Hunger.
This brings us back to Phandalin. As a “perfect circle of black glass”, it seems to be the right shape and color to serve as a “mirror” to the Hunger, just like the crystal in Lucas’s lab.
But what does this have to do with Gundren?
There was something else in The Eleventh Hour that caught my attention. When the boys are shown the destruction of Phandalin by the Chalice, Griffin says the following:
“And then you’re standing at the epicenter. Right in front of Gundren’s blackened bones. His arm - with the gauntlet on it - held up to the sky in the center of this roaring, expanding pillar of fire.”
This is the second time Griffin has specifically mentioned Gundren’s bones at the center of Phandalin. We have no reason to believe these bones aren’t still there, sitting in the middle of the circle of glass. His remains are the “X marking the spot” of the mirror.
I believe the “power” in Paloma’s prophecy is the power to travel through the perfect, black circle of Phandalin into the Hunger, a power created by none other than Gundren Rockseeker. In our boys’ hour of greatest need, they’ll return to the man who was wreathed in flames, who’s bones sit at the center of the portal they seek.
