All the devastation converges on one car somewhat down the incline so they decided to check it out
Theyre almost on the car when a shot rings out and only Gladio’s quick reflexes saves them as he gets his shield out and up

Summary: He is a god and he is a master in lies. Death for him can’t be this easy. But you never thought he’d lie to you about something like this, something so important that actually broke you. You return home to find a “gift” waiting for you from Odin himself and it is finally time to have a talk with it… while living the rest of your life with it on Earth.
A/N: Not betad, I apologize for any mistakes!
“Tony, please.” you said with a half-whine and half-giggle as you unlocked your apartment door.
“Come on, come on just one more!” the man at the other end said with a chuckle and you had to stifle a giggle once more.
“Tony!” you whined again, walking in the almost pitch black apartment “My stomach can’t take it anymore. What’s up with you and jokes, are you that bored in the meeting? And how the heck does nobody else tell you to shut up?”
You complained about it but truth was you needed the pick up and hearing your friend laugh, this much at that, after everything that had happened and sound like his old self again was really more than you could ask for. None of you were the same anymore, and maybe you had to endure twice the pain after what had happened in the dark world as well.
You shifted uncomfortably in your seat, trying to avoid
Zen’s glare. His scarlet eyes narrowed as you squirmed.
Just ignore him…
“Him-Ah, I-I mean,
Crap, I’m not crying
again, am I?
“…I asked if you invited Allergy to the next party,” Seven
leaned forward, slightly tilting his head. His eyes softened, silently asking
if everything was okay.
You gave him a reassuring smile. “Yeah, I sent an-”
“MC, can you help me with something in the kitchen?”
Zen moved his petite girlfriend off his lap and stood up. He
walked out of the room without an answer.
I guess I don’t have
much of a choice…
You sunk farther back into your chair and closed your eyes.
Maybe I can pretend I
didn’t hear him.
“MC, aren’t you going to help him?”
You gritted your teeth and slowly stood.
“I guess I will, Yoosung.”
As you walked away, Yoosung ‘hmph’ed.
“Who spit in her
coffee this morning,” he muttered.
Life. Life spit in my
You peeked your head into the kitchen.
Zen looked over at you, the familiar glare returning to his
Oh my gosh-
“-What the hell is your problem?”
Zen continued to stare at you, completely ignoring your
question. The kitchen light above you flickered, and the low hum of the refrigerator
filled the heavy silence.
“I don’t have to put up with this.”
As you turned away, a warm hand grabbed your wrist.
Slowly, Zen pulled you back in front of him. He closed his
eyes and sighed.
You looked down at the iron grip he had on your wrist, and
then back up to his face.
Seriously? First he
acts like some angsty teenager, giving me the silent treatment, and now I
can’t even leave?
The burning in your chest overwhelmed you, rage bubbling up
inside every inch of your body.
Okay, okay, I need to
You looked down at your shoes, trying to remember what Seven told you before the party.
Seven placed both his hands on your shoulders. “Okay, MC, listen up. I’m about to give you some grade A wisdom!”
You sighed and tilted your head. “What is it this time?”
“If you ever feel too overwhelmed just count to ten!”
“You know… one, two, three-”
“I-I know how to count,” you playfully pushed him away, “but does that really work? I mean, is that what you do?”
“No, I just push away the people I love and dig myself into a hole of self-hatred.”
“Anddddd, why can’t I do that??”
“Because,” Seven patted the top of your head, “I care about you too much to let you do that.”
Zen let out a heavy sighed, bringing you back to reality.
Counting to ten, huh? Alright… I’ll try your way first.
You let out a breath and looked back up at Zen. He opened
his eyes, loosening the grip on your wrist.
Zen moved closer to
you, his eyes trained on your face.
Your back hit the counter, trapping you between the wall and
His cold eyes turned soft, and the smile you had grown to
love appeared on his face once again.
You heart was beating so loud you could’ve sworn he heard
He let go of your wrist, slowly moving his hand up to your
The world around you stopped. Your stomach flipped, and you
mentally cursed at your now flushed face.
Zen’s eyes looked down at your lips, his hand slowly pulling
your face toward him.
You held your breath.
He leaned in to close the gap.
Zen’s warm and ragged breath tickled your nose. Your eyes wandered
up to look into his red ones, his faces only centimeters away.
Despite everything your heart was telling you, you pulled away.
Your back hit the cold counter again and you winced, readjusting your stance.
You leaned against the wall and stared at the white tile floor, avoiding the
confused look Zen was giving you. He cleared his throat.
“That was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.”
You bit your lip, failing to hold back the tears already
streaming down your face. You looked up at Zen through blurry eyes. “You have a
girlfriend… you didn’t choose me, you chose her.”
Your voice felt distant and unfamiliar. Slowly, you began
losing control of your surroundings. The world-
Your world came
crashing down. In one short burst of courage, you pushed past him.
“Can’t I love both of you?”
Those words stopped you in your tracks.
I’m such an idiot.
Everything felt cold and numb. Without turning around, you
“Are you really so selfish as to keep dragging me along like
some kind of… kind of… cat toy?”
Despite the situation, you smiled.
Jumin would be ecstatic right now.
You felt a hand on your shoulder.
“I’m not selfish, I just don’t want you to end up with…
“That’s the definition of selfish!! And who the hell else
That’s when it clicked. That’s when everything clicked.
You shrugged off Zen’s hand and opened the door to the
“MC, please just… wait!”
But you were done waiting. You stormed out of the kitchen,
Zen on your heels.
I finally understand
“There they are, we’ve been waiting! We’re gonna play
Jaehee smiled at you and Zen, oblivious to the fight that
had just occurred in the kitchen.
“MC, pleaseeee be
on my team!! I’ll be your best frienddddd!!!!”
Zen’s stare burned holes in the back of your head and you
heard him audibly scoff. Seven stood up
and smiled at you, extending one hand toward you.
In one big swoop, you grabbed his hand and pulled him toward
you. You placed a hand on the back of his neck, connecting your lips with his.
It didn’t take long for him to react. He cupped your chin,
deepening the kiss. When the two of you pulled apart, you were both out of
You wiped your mouth, sending a cold glare Zen’s way. When
you looked back at Seven he was as red as his hair.
“I-I thought you liked-“
You leaned your forehead against his.
“I like you,
Seven. It just took one selfish prick,” you glanced back at Zen, “to help me
figure that out.”
Seven gave you a goofy smile and-oh no…
“SevEN PUT ME DOWN!! D-Don’t spin me, I’M GONNA HURL!”
He laughed as he released you from his giant bear hug,
plopping you back on the ground. You grabbed his arm for balance.
After you re-orientated yourself, you looked back at the shocked
Hey! Love your edits. I was wondering if you could take us through how you make your edits? And any tips on how to start with editing?
I COULD try and livestream the whole process because one single edit I post is quite literally, a combination of different edits, some parts are even completely redrawn based of canon material and references.
I think the best thing to do is to just show you in rough lines how I created my last edit:
Also seems like the perfect time to post all my wips and bonuses! which isn’t much but… yeah
