anonymous asked:

can you make a checklist on how to get into the gorillaz?? It seems like there is a lot out there and its hard to follow when i'm getting into it late.. thank you!!

Sure!!! I personally got into them by watching their G-bitez and music videos and it all kinda spiraled from there.

The band itself was made by Damon Albarn (Lead singer of Blur, does vocals and writes lyrics for Gorillaz) and Jamie Hewlett (Co-creator of the comic book “Tank Girl”, draws and animates for Gorillaz) after they were both watching MTV and they were like “hey music today sucks you know what’d be cool?? if we made an animated band” “cool we could call it ‘gorilla’ because we were both born on the year of the monkey!!!” sadly animal planet had already copyrighted “gorilla” so they just added a z to the end of it to make it cooler.

Here’s a playlist of all of their music videos/unfinished storyboards i put together (they’re all in order according to the storyline, but keep in mind that “do ya thing” isn’t canon): https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLupIZC02E6mRz_uqFp8BiLuEZ3-ZUjJZB

Here’s a list of all of their interviews I’ve been able to find (You can learn a lot about the characters from these babies): https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLupIZC02E6mT1RKRtEIu2RA4AraQnGnqu

Aaand here’s a list of all of their songs (there’s a bunch). Every one of them sorted from oldest to newest, every song after “We’ve got the power” is either a demo, rare or unreleased: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLupIZC02E6mTeUgeN3TVDF1kUgM11wlFI

Something to know about Gorillaz is that they have “phases”. Phase 1 was in 2001, when they released their albums “Gorillaz”, “G-Sides” and “Laika come home”. Phase 1′s art style was cartoonish and used very thick lineart. Phase 2 was in 2005, when they released “Demon Days” and “D-sides”. Phase 2′s art style was a bit dark and looked more realistic. Phase 3 was in 2010, when they released the albums “Plastic Beach” and “The Fall” in 2011. Phase 3′s art style was almost the same as phase 2′s. Then we have Phase 4 in 2017, their new album “Humanz” is coming out April 28th. It’s art style is the one that stands out the most to me, you can find most of the art on Jamie Hewlett’s Instragram (Hewll)

Alright, a big part of me getting into the fandom was my love fore the characters. I’m assuming you’re not a fan yet, so let me introduce them to you (i’m going to use powerpoints to explain each member if u don’t mind):

This lovely lad here is Murdoc Faust Niccals.

- He’s the band’s leader/bassist, and he makes sure EVERYONE knows that’s it’s his band and only his.
- He went through multiple other bands before he formed Gorillaz.
- He was born on June 6th, 1966 in Stoke-on-Trent, England. As an infant he was abandoned on his father’s doorstep.
- Had a very rough childhood, his father, Sebastian Niccals, would force him to preform on stage for booze money and it was absolutely humiliating for him.
- His nose has been broken a of total 8 times. The first time was from a bully at his school, the 2nd time was from his older (and only) brother, Hannibal, because Murdoc had touched his records and the other 6 times were from Russel when he got caught “doing it” with 2D’s now ex-girlfriend in the bathroom stalls of Kong Studios
- His middle name was originally “Alphonse” but he changed it to “Faust” after making a deal with the Devil in phase 1 to make Gorillaz the “biggest band in the world”. That’s also how he got his bass, “El Diablo”.
- did i mention he was a satanist bc he is
- He hangs around in his underwear a lot (especially in phase 2)
- He likes to either get naked or start pelvic thrusting in like every video, so be careful, young anon.
- He’s very crude but sometimes he can be very nice and adorable in some interviews ??? It’s so weird
- He likes making weird noises, like, a lot.
- Apparently can speak French and Spanish
- His reason for turning green all of the sudden in phase 2 is either because of alcohol poisoning or due to him tanning himself green. Jamie himself said that it’s because he’s an immortalist and his skin is now rotting but I’m not sure how true it is.
- He had a pet raven in phase 2!!! His name was Cortez and no one really
knows what happened to him but Murdoc seemed to love that bird.
- He also had a cape in phase 2 that he loved and wore like all the time but he lost it. Poor baby.
- He was based off of a young 1960′s era Keith Richards.
- He has a tongue longer than Gene Simmons’ and I’m not even kidding. His tongue is like a foot long
- His genuine laugh can cure cancer
- He had his own MTV cribs episode
- Here’s a playlist of every interview he’s been in if you’d like to know a bit more about how he acts.
- All of this sounds horrible but like half of the fandom sees him as charming and funny and the other half sees him as repulsive and downright mean so i guess listen to some of his interviews and make your decision (i’m part of the half that loves him)

This is 2D!!

- He’s the band’s singer, sometimes he plays the piano and melodica too.
- He’s anxious and a bit timid around people. He’s not that intelligent, but he’s an absolute sweetheart to pretty much everyone. He’s … a huge dork.
- He was born on May 23rd, 1978.  He was born in Hertfordshire, England and was raised in Crawley, England. When he was 10 he fell out of a tree and landed on his head, his hair fell out and grew back blue. He’s had horrible headaches since then, but his mother was a nurse and gave pills to help him out.
- His real name is Stuart Pot
- He loves horror films!!! Especially zombie movies.
- Apparently he smells like butterscotch
- He’s VERY tall. he’s like 6′1 and his legs make up most of his body. He towers over the rest of the band.
- His voice actor is Nelson De Freitas, but Damon Albarn provides his singing voice
- The lack of his two front teeth gives him an adorable accent
- He has a crippling fear of whales
- His eyes are black due to an 8-ball fracture that Murdoc gave him before the band was made when he crashed his car into the music store 2D worked at.
- His eyes turn white when he’s stressed or scared.
- His nickname “2D” stands for “Two Dents”. He’s called that because Murdoc’s car crash also gave him two dents in his head.
- Murdoc is seen physically abusing 2D throughout phase 1-3, but there’s a very likely chance that he’s going to stop and make amends in phase 4!!!
- Here’s a playlist of interviews that he’s been in
- Everybody loves him. I love him. I don’t think it’s possible not to love him.


This is Russel Hobbs!!

- He’s the band’s drummer.  He makes remixes too!!!
- The living embodiment of “looks like he could kill you but is actually a cinnamon roll”
- Quite possibly the most underrated character in the world
- He was born in Brooklyn, New York on June 3rd, 1975. He got possessed by a demon as a kid and fell into a coma for four years. After he woke up the demon got expelled tho
- When he was a teen, him and his friends were involved in a drive-by shooting. Russel was the only survivor and all of his friends possessed him, but the only one we really get to see is his closest friend, Del, he raps in Clint Eastwood and Rock the House, but we haven’t seen him since phase 1. 
- Russel misses Del very dearly, poor lad.
- After the whole shooting incident he was sent to the UK to live with his uncle.
- HE SAVED 2D FROM BEING EATEN BY A WHALE. HE’S SO UNDERAPPRECIATED 
- He’s an actual giant in phase 3 because he ate some radioactive algae 
- He loves fezzes!!!
- His hobby, besides music, is taxidermy.
- He’s the dad friend
- Here’s a playlist of interviews that he’s been in

Last but not least, this is Noodle

- She plays guitar for the band. She also sings and writes songs sometimes
- Noodle is very energetic and nice but she can also kick your ass
- She was born in Osaka, Japan on October 31st 1990
- She joined the band when she was around 10 but she’s like 26 now. I forgot to mention that the band ages with real time
- As a kid she was a part of a classified child super solider project under the management of a japanese scientist named Mr. Kyuzo. this is where she learned how to be badass. She knew professional karate at like 10 how cool is that
- All of the children in that project were deemed too unstable and dangerous, so they canceled the experiment and Mr. Kyuzo was ordered to kill all of the children (fuckin dark i know). After killing them all, Mr. Kyuzo was reluctant to kill Noodle, so instead he put her in a state of amnesia and smuggled her to the UK by shipping her to Kong Studios in a FedEx crate.
- She didn’t remember anything!!! The only english thing she was able to say to say was “noodle” and that’s where she got her name.
- She learned how to speak english and remembered her past in phase 2.
- Murdoc, 2D and Russel raised her (mostly russel tho). Noodle considers Murdoc and 2D her brothers and Russel considers her his daughter how CUTE IS THAT
- She loves Pokemon
- She had a flying windmill island in phase 2 it was incredible
- She had a cute radio helmet in phase 1 
- She also has a robot version of herself called “Cyborg Noodle” in phase 3. It’s a long story but Cyborg might be coming back for phase 4.
- The interviews that she’s in can be found here!!

The backstory is too long for me to write down, but you can find it over here! I hope i explained everything clearly- if not, or if you have any questions, feel free to send me a message!! I hope this helps you c:

Hello everyone! I’m running a survey to find out a bit more about the demographics of the ace discourse. While I do have a stance on said discourse, I did my best to remain as neutral as possible on the survey, so as not to introduce bias. If I’ve messed up, let me know!

While the survey is fairly long, only the first question (which side of the discourse you’re on) is required, the rest are completely optional! Fill out as many or as few as you’re comfortable with!

Please signal boost this post! I would like responses from as many people as possible! (I would usually tag people myself, but I only really know names from my side of the discourse, and couldn’t figure out a way to get names from the other side without revealing my stance)

You can find the survey here! Thanks in advance!

A/N: This was requested by an anon! I hope you all enjoy! I love you all so much! <3 Feedback is welcomed and appreciated!

Sam and Dean watched as Lucifer and Chuck talked to each other.  They thought that they would be at each other’s throats, but that wasn’t the case.  It felt weird for Dean and Sam to be in the same room as the two of them.  At first they were talking about nothing, but now they were talking about everything.

“Have you found your soulmate,” Chuck asked, curiosity evident in his voice.  “Where are they?”

“I decided to leave [Y/N] out of this,” Lucifer muttered, letting his arm drop onto his lap.  “I don’t need aunt Amara going after her to get to me, to get to you.”

“Wait, Lucifer has a soulmate,” Sam cut in, extending his gaze to Chuck.

“I’m still an angel Sam,” Lucifer noted, rolling his eyes.  “All angels have soulmates.”

Summary: when a door closes, another one opens, but what happens when the door isn’t fully closed?

Pairing: Jungkook x Reader x Taehyung

You made your way to the coffee shop, it wasn’t far away from your dorm, all the buildings were connected so it wasn’t hard to walk around. The coffee shop had an amazing interior, the light came on from the big windows and the smell of coffee was strong and relaxing. You walked to the table where Taehyung and another guy was sitting. Taehyung was the first one to notice you since he was the one facing the door, he smiled and waved his hand for you to come closer.
“Let me introduce you properly, this is my roommate and best friend, Chim” Taehyung smiled pointing at the red haired guy.
“It’s not Chim, it’s Jimin, just ignore him” Jimin chuckled while Taehyung pouted “That’s not how you-” Taehyung interrupted his words and pointed behind you “and this one here is my other roommate”.
You turned around so fast you regretted every second of your life, you came face to face with the one and only Jeon Jungkook, your stupid crush for more than 6 months, who called you annoying and told you to get lost. The one and only Jeon Jungkook who made you feel like shit and the only reason you spent three days locked in your room, ignoring everyone.
Jungkook looked shocked for a second but Taehyung didn’t seem to notice anything “His name is Jungkook”
You were quick to recover, pulled the biggest smile ever and extended your hand, just like you did a few seconds ago with Jimin “Nice to meet you Jungkook”. Jungkook squeezed your hand for a few seconds before pronouncing himself with a grunt which probably was a mixture of disgust and shock.
Jungkook settled himself next to Jimin, his penetrating gaze never leaving you as you turned around and faced Taehyung. “Excuse me but I have to use the restroom, be right back” You smiled and made your way to the restroom as calmly as you could.
You were supposed to meet Taehyung, work on your project, maybe finish it, head back home and complain about your life for the rest of the night, maybe dedicate hateful words to Jungkook for being a jerk, but seeing Jungkook? That was never in the plan and it should have never happened.
After washing your hands and a few deep breaths you walked back to the table to be welcomed with a hot cup of coffee being pushed into your hands.
“I really didn’t know what kind of coffee you were into so I ordered what I saw on the menu” Taehyung nodded and directed his gaze to the cup that was now placed on your hands.
“Why are you lying?” Jimin laughed “He asked Jin what kind of coffee were girls into and ordered this weird coffee that he didn’t even know how to pronounce” You chuckled at Jimin’s confession and looked at Taehyung who was smiling sheepishly.
You were trying your best to ignore Jungkook’s burning gaze but you locked eyes with him when you were sitting down next to Taehyung, the corner of his lips turned up in a smirk, you shook your head softly and moved your gaze to the warm cup of coffee placed between your hands.
Jimin and Jungkook excused themselves after fifteen minutes, they had practice. Jimin was the first one to stand up and smile in your direction, saying how much he enjoyed meeting you and hoping he would see you again, Jungkook’s reaction, on the other hand, was completely different, he just nodded hid head in your direction and muttered a goodbye between grunts.
You watched them leave the coffee shop and when you were about to turn around to face Taehyung your phone beeped on your pocket. You pulled your phone out carefully and you felt your head spin when you read the name on the screen, Jungkook.

Part 1. Part 2. Part 3. Part 4. Part 5   Part 6.

A/N: So tell me, did I screw up big time adding all that text? I just really needed to write that part to explain some things. I will try to make the other ones only text.

masterlist | next | prev

Your body trembled visibly, as you stood before the giant eagle statue which was the entrance Professor McGonagall’s office. After Dumbledore’s death over 20 years ago, McGonagall had taken over and become the new headmaster of Hogwarts. Over the years, many former students who fought in the Battle of Hogwarts, have come back and become teachers at the school. You, on the other hand, were a new student. You originally went to Beauxbatons Academy, until your parents made you move. They believed that Beauxbatons Academy focused on beauty rather than education. So they suggested Hogwarts, as it was one of the best known wizarding schools for education. 

“Sherbet Lemon,” Professor Longbottom’s voice pulled you out of your thoughts. You looked at the man questionably. “The ‘password’ was Dumbledore’s, Professor McGonagall wanted to keep it, for the memories,” he explained, his tone of voice changed, to a saddened one.

“Sorry, I hadn’t realised,” you muttered in reply, fidgeting on the spot.

“It’s quite alright Miss (L/N). Now let us head up, shall we? We don’t want to meet Professor McGonagall waiting,” Longbottom smiled as he guided you up to the office. “Please go in, she’s expecting you,” and with that, Professor Longbottom turned around and left.

Quietly you opened the door and stuck your head out from behind it. Your eyes widened in awe as you stared at the marvellous house sized office. At each side of the room, stood two large staircases, leading up to a globe of some sort. and in the middle of the staircases stood a desk, where Professor McGonagall sat, staring at you from above her glasses. Quickly she adjusted them further up the bridge of her nose and stood up, her long green robe dragging behind her on the floor.

“Good Evening, Miss (L/N). To be honest, I was expecting you sooner,” she spoke in a stern tone, clearly disappointed at your late arrival.

“I’m sorry Professor McGonagall, I had a little trouble with my parents before I arrived,” you replied quietly, rethinking over your argument with your parents before you left.

“Hmm, alright but please do arrive earlier, I began to worry when you hadn’t arrived. I feared something wrong had happened on your journey,” she sighed in frustration. You nodded, understanding where she was coming from.

“So, uhm? If you don’t mind me asking, why am I here?” you questioned.

“Ah yes of course! We need to get you sorted into your house,” Professor McGonagall replied, more cheerfully than she was seconds ago. When you didn’t reply she continued. “Hogwarts has 4 houses. Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Gryffindor and Slytherin. Each house has different traits, and the sorting hat will put you into the one he sees you fit best,” she continued after a short moment. “Hufflepuff represents the hard work, dedication, patience, loyalty, and fair play in a person. They are kind and try hard to find a way to make others happy.”

Your eyes widened when Professor McGonagall spoke. The way she talked was inspiring, confident and intelligently. She knew what she was doing and she definitely wasn’t afraid to speak her mind.

“Ravenclaw values intelligence, knowledge, and wit. They represent how power isn’t always found through brute strength, but can rather be found through the mind. They are hard working and strive for improvement. Ravenclaws don’t believe in failure and will continuously work hard to get where they want in life.”

“So basically-” you were immediately cut off when McGonagall put her hand up to shush you.

“Gryffindor represents the bravery, daring, nerve, and chivalry in a person. Gryffindors prefer to take the lead, as they are normally relied on during tense situations. Just like Ravenclaws they also work hard, but they work hard to protect people they care about and aren’t afraid to start a fight if someone is in trouble.” McGonagall took a quick sip of her water that was on her desk.  

“And finally Slytherin. They value ambition, cunning and resourcefulness. Most Slytherin’s have a bad habit of pulling pranks on the other students in the houses, but please do not assume that about all Slytherin’s some are very caring towards, and I sometimes question the sorting hats choices, but obviously, deep down, they are cunning and filled with ambition. Now any questions before we begin?” Instantly you shook your head. “Good now, excuse me a moment. “

Your eyes widened in awe as Professor McGonagall’s body began to shrink and she formed into a black cat, her amber eyes piercing into yours. Quickly she turned around and hopped up into the desk. She then jumped up onto a bookshelf and continued to hop further up until she stood at the very top of the bookcase. Carefully she grabbed a wizard’s hat between her teeth and leapt down from the shelf. Turning back into her original form, she coughed slightly.

“I forget how dusty this hat gets over time,” her face was scrunched up, disgusted at the fact she had dust in her mouth. After a moment she cleared her throat and looked back over to you. “Please take a seat and we shall begin.”

Nervously you sat down in a seat opposite her and she gently placed the hat upon your head. 

“Ah! Another new student I see!?” the hat spoke loudly, frightening you. “My apologies dear, now let’s get you sorted! Hmm, I sense bravery, but also kindness. Hidden in there somewhere is also intelligence and cunning. It appears you have a bit of everything, but we can only put you in one house,” after a short moment the sorting hat spoke again. “I have decided. Ravenclaw!” he yelled dramatically.

A small smile spread across your face at his words. From the moment Professor McGonagall had told you about each house, you instantly took a liking to Ravenclaw. You definitely worked hard and was intelligent, so you were glad to be placed in Ravenclaw.

“Now, I shall go get Namjoon and he will give you a tour around Hogwarts. Because it’s after dinner, the first, second and third years should be in their dorms so there won’t be that many students going about,” McGonagall spoke quickly as he headed out of the office.

Moments later she had returned, but this time she wasn’t alone. A tall blonde boy stood behind her, wearing Ravenclaw robes, his big brown eyes look right back at you.

“Namjoon, this is (Y/N), (Y/N), Namjoon. I want you to take good care of her, and make her feel welcomed alright? I don’t want her coming back complaining about how much of an annoyance you’ve been,” McGonagall joked. Namjoon laughed lightly in reply and beckoned you to follow him. You quickened your pace to catch up with Namjoon and he made his way out of the office and onto the grand staircase that twisted and turned to different locations and floors.

“So (Y/N), we’ll head to the Ravenclaw common room first and let you get changed?” Namjoon suggested as he looked down at you. 

“Yeah, sure. I don’t mind,” you replied, unsure. 

“Don’t be so nervous. I’m sure you’ll like it here!” Namjoon beamed, his dimples visible as he smiled.

“Oh, it’s not that! I’m sure I’ll enjoy being here! It’s just I got into an argument with my parents before I left you see,” you muttered sadly, avoiding eye contact with the tall male.

“My apologies, I hadn’t realised,” Namjoon replied sympathetically. 

“Please don’t be sorry, it was a stupid argument over my education that’s all. I’m sure I’ll make my parents proud no matter what,” you smiled brightly at the tall male, who returned the gesture.

You both continued your way through the school until you reached the 5th floor on the grand staircase. As you went through the main door on the fifth floor, you almost immediately came face to face with a much larger door, with a plain design. The only thing making the door stand out (except its enormous size) was that of a bronze knocker shaped as an eagle. Namjoon made his way towards the door used the handle to knock on the door 3 times. Almost immediately the knocker came to life.

“Answer me this riddle!” it boomed, it’s loud voice echoing throughout the room. “Which came first? The Pheonix or the Flame?” the knocker questioned. Namjoon readjusted his robe and stood tall.

“A circle has no beginning,” he replied confidently. His smirk grew wider when they door opened wide revealing the spacious circular room inside. “Please follow me,” he instructed as he led you into the centre of the room. You turned on the spot, staring at the room in awe. The walls were painted a silvery colour, with blue furniture. The curtains also had a silver border around the outside, giving them extra detail.

“This is amazing!” you beamed as you looked back at Namjoon who smiled gently at you.

“Welcome to Ravenclaw Tower, or in other words, the Ravenclaw Common Room,” Namjoon spoke. “Now let me show you to your dorm, and then we can get you settled. As it’s only 7 pm, so my friends should still be up, I’ll introduce you to them,” Namjoon explained as he led you up to a small flight of stairs. “There’s your dorm,” he spoke as he pointed to the door on the right. Nodding you walked over to the door and opened it. Luckily for you, the dorm was empty so you didn’t need to worry about introductions with any of the other female students. 

The dorm was the same shape as the main room, and bunk beds were placed at the perimeter of the room, allowing the small gas fire in the middle to heat up the room. After finding robes, and spell books on one of the top bunks, you had come to the conclusion that was your bed. Not wanting to keep Namjoon waiting any longer, you quickly changed into your uniform and headed out of the door and down the stairs where Namjoon awaited you, sitting on one of the dark blue couch in front of the fireplace.

“Shall we go?” you questioned as you ran your hands down your robe, in an attempt to get rid of some of the creases. Namjoon nodded and guided you out of the common room.

———————————————————–

The walk down the stairs and to the great hall was quiet, but not awkward. The silence was almost comfortable. Namjoon had explained that if there was anything you wanted to know, you just had to ask, so he didn’t speak like most tour guides did, as he explained it ends up annoying the tourist.

Upon arriving at the great hall, your jaw almost hit the floor at the size of the room. Four long table stretched out and went to almost the end of each side of the room. Laid on the tables, was left large amounts of leftover food from dinner. And a few students sat at tables chatting and laughing about their days. The group that caught most of your attention, however, was the largest group, which had a mixture of students from all four houses.

“Hey, guys!” Namjoon called as he made his way over to the group of friends. Each one of them replied with a loud or quiet hello before he stood behind two of the boys and wrapped his arms around their shoulders.

Cautiously you followed Namjoon and stood behind them. As one of the boys looked up his eyes widened in surprise and he instantly smiled.

“Who’s this?” he asked excitedly. Namjoon looked over at you and then back at the others.

“Guys, this is (Y/N), a new student of Hogwarts, originally went to Beauxbatons Academy,” Namjoon explained. You were about to speak up when he looked back at you. “It’s my ‘mission’ to know most things about newcomers, it’s helpful for my studying,” he explained.

“Ah right okay,” you smiled back awkwardly.

“Aw she’s so adorable!” a Hufflepuff squealed happily causing you to blush. “I’m Taehyung! But you can call me Tae!” he giggled uncontrollably. You laughed lightly in return.

“Nice to meet you Tae,” you replied.

“This is Jin and Jimin, they’re both Gryffindors. Jin has a bad habit of calling himself handsome, and Jimin’s just a cutie,” Taehyung explained. Jin leant back in his seat so he could see you more clearly, and blew you a kiss. Taken aback by the sudden gesture you blush deeply and rubbed the back of your neck. “You’re gonna have to get used to that by the way.”

“You’ve got Yoongi and Jungkook, who are both Slytherin’s. Yoongi can be rather cold hearted but if you get on his good side, he’ll be able to stand you. And Jungkook can be a right prankster, but he’s awfully shy around new people,” Namjoon carried on, as he pointed to each person.

“And finally Hosoek, he’s a Hufflepuff as well. He never seems to stop smiling, and except a lot of screaming and hugs. Same goes with Tae,” Namjoon finished as he sat down at the table. When he noticed you not sitting down he patted a seat next to him offering you to sit down. “Sadly we’re missing Choa and Hyuna, where are they anyway?”

“They had to do ‘girls stuff’ apparently we’re no fun,” Taehyung pouted childishly as he pretended to cry and clung onto Hoseok who did the same thing.

“I don’t think you’re no fun,” you smiled cheerfully at the 2 boys who were ‘crying’ moments ago. They now had huge smiled on the faces.

“Oh did you hear about the Christmas ball they are throwing for the 5th and 6th years? Originally they do it for all years, but since 5th and 6th years can’t go home for Christmas this year for exams, they’ve decided to throw a ball for us, as an apology for not letting us go home,” Jimin piped up with a smile.

“I really hate balls, they did one last year and it seriously didn’t go according to plan,” Yoongi growled in annoyance.

“You need to remember Yoongi, that was with every year, this time it’ll just be us 5th and 6th years,” Jin reassured the smaller male. Yoongi scoffed

“When is this ball anyway?” Yoongi snarled.

“I heard it was on Christmas day. The teachers allowed us to take a break from studying and have a little fun. They understand we’re under a lot of pressure at the moment and they want us to relax at some point,” Hoseok replied. The thought of a ball made you tense. Even though your mum was strict about your grades she still wanted you to be able to relax once in a while and have fun. You mother always went on about the balls that were held at Hogwarts and how magnificent they were. You panicked as you thought about the ball.

Should I even go? What if I don’t get a date? What if I embarrass myself? What if I don’t find the right dress? You had so many many questions rushing through your head you hadn’t realised you were being spoken too.

“(Y/N)? Are you going to the ball?” Jimin asked you again.

“Sorry I was lost in thought,” you replied awkwardly. “I don’t know if I’ll go. I mean, I just got here, and I’ll probably have a lot to catch up on, I don’t want to get bad grades,” you mumbled.

“You can’t not come! Seriously! Tae and I will help you find a dress any get everything sorted out for you! While you study!” Hoseok offered and you smiled.

“It’s fine. I’ve just never been to a ball before so-” you were instantly cut off.

“You’ve never been to a ball!” most of the boys yelled in unison, causing the other students in the great hall to turn and look your way.

“Okay listen here, you’re definitely going to this ball now. We are gonna get Hyuna and Choa to help you out once they come back from wherever they went,” Jin spoke dramatically.

“Okay, so what will we need. We’ll need to get you a dress, a date a-” you had cut Taehyung off from speaking.

“Guys seriously, I can be pretty independent you know. I was put in Ravenclaw for a reason. If you want me to go that badly, I’ll come. But just to let you know, I can’t dance for shit,” you muttered, embarrassed.

“That’s fine! Hosoek can teach you! He loves to dance and I think he’d be more than happy to help!” Namjoon smiled as he looked over at the older boy for consent. Hoseok nodded in reply and looked back at you. 

“That’s great, now we’ll work on that over the weekends, it doesn’t take long to learn the dances for the balls. They’re actually very simple,” Hoseok explained, trying to ease you tenseness. 

“Alright, I think about 2 pm would be the best time for me,” you said. “I’ll most likely be studying when I wake up, so I’ll need a break round about that time.”

“Good! Then it’s settled! I’ll come to your common room at 2 and then we’ll make our way to the room of requirement,” Hosoek beamed. Nodding in reply you raised your arms up and stretched. 

“Luckily tomorrow is Friday, and we’re on study leave, so we can start tomorrow, technically it’s not the weekend but still, it would be good to get started,” Hosoek suggested. 

“Alright. Anyway, I better get up to the dorm. I need to unpack and start studying I guess. Good night guys,” you yawned as you stood up. As soon as you left the boys all looked over at Jungkook, who’s eyes were on you.

“I think our Kookie has a crush,” Taehyung giggled cheerfully.

“W-what! No, I don’t!” Jungkook instantly denied his cheeks turning red with embarrassment.

“It’s alright Kookie. There’s nothing wrong with liking someone, but next time don’t stare at them like they’re a piece of meet,” Jin laughed loudly with the other boys.

“She is very beautiful though, and has a lovely personality,” Yoongi spoke up. The others stared at him in disbelief. “What? I think she’s a nice person okay? Plus I feel as if she’s the savage type,” Yoongi grinned. “She’s almost got as much swag as me.” Jimin groaned in annoyance as the others sighed 

“Hyung, there’s a time where you need to stop,” Namjoon spoke as he laid his head on the table. “I think I’ll be heading off to bed too, I’m really tired. Night guys.” With that, Namjoon left.

“Ugh Namjoon’s so lucky (Y/N)’s in his house!” Jimin whined.

“Why you got a thing for her too?” Taehyung teased.

“Don’t act like you don’t like her either, I saw the way you all looked at her. Especially you hyung,” Jimin pointed to Yoongi. “You actually took interest in what she said, and focuses all of your attention on her,” Jimin snapped.

“So what? She’s cute. You jealous you’ve got competition?” Yoongi taunted. Jimin huffed.

“We’ll see who she chooses, plus I’ll be asking her to the ball,” Jimin replied proudly.

“In your dreams idoit!” Hoseok growled lowly. “I’m teaching her how to dance, therefore I should be taking her!”

“No way! I was the one that suggested it! So I should take her!” Jin piped up angrily. 

“How about this? Whoever she dances with at the ball will be hers,” Taehyung spoke up.

“Guys! Stop it!” Jungkook groaned. The others glared at the maknae in annoyance. “Think of it like this okay? We’re fighting over a girl, we’ve barely known for like 30 minutes. She might not even think of us in that way! You can’t claim her, and she hasn’t even gotten a say in this! Think of her feelings as well!” Jungkook explained.

“Oh, Jungkook. Why are you not Ravenclaw! You’re definitely smart enough to be in that house. Kookie is right. We’re fighting over a stranger we barely know. Allow her to decide who she likes,” Hosoek spoke.

“Deal?” Jin asked. The others glanced at each other for a moment.

“Deal.” they all replied in unison.

“what is it like to even be human?”

All Jungkook could remember were the events that was being unfolded right in front of him, everything else being untraceable. Being forced into a war he wasn’t even aware that was happening, being paired up with Taehyung and Yoongi during this ‘war’. They were pushed into this, being forced to kill the unknown enemy, relying on their so called abilities to keep them safe. Many questions were left unanswered, that was until he met you. More questions raised up, more confusion being added, and only a few things being answered. How can you tell the difference between human, and non-human?

EXO Fanfic: Fantasy AU (Other World Chronicles)
Main Pairing: Female Reader/OC x Oh Sehun (Shadowkind)

The Other World has been at peace for many years, the Council keeping law and order between the Kinds and Lands. Even Outsiders live threat free. But in a world so vast and varied - can peace ever truly last..?

__________________________

AUTHOR NOTE: to anyone new: Hello! This series can be read alone, but it is actually from a collection of stories I have written for the same alternative universe. I would recommend reading those to fully understand everything that is going on (especially my own characters and the whole politics of the place - and especially Charred for Sehun’s backstory in this fic!). But that being said, it should be okay if you want to read it as a stand alone!

to anyone who has read the Other World series already: HEY LOVELIES! It is finally here, Sehun’s time to shine!! I know it is not that long since I finished Roots, but I am all ready to get this fic going. However, I am starting my new course very soon, this will be updated a bit slower than I normally do, I hope that’s okay. Also for anyone who has not seen/does not know - for the foreseeable future: THIS WILL BE MY LAST OTHER WORLD FIC! As lovely as I find it that you want me to write one for every member, the world building takes a lot of time and effort so I need to take a break from it! I might come back one day, but for now… please don’t expect any more! 

Okay! I’ll shut up now: hope you enjoy!!

P.S. I have tried something new, and parts of this story will not be reader perspective, but Sehun’s! Just you know, before you get confused.

You stared out at the expanse of water below you, watching the way the sunlight was dancing softly on the waves. The breeze played a little with the opening of your silk dressing gown, but you didn’t feel the cold. The Light Islands never get cold. You sighed, moving the glass of wine a little in your hand as you leant against the wall of the large balcony. You watched how the light played in the crystal, the way the liquid seen to turn gold in the sunlight.

‘Shouldn’t you be getting ready to go?’

You looked over your shoulder and saw your father walking towards you. He smiled at you as he approached, raising an eyebrow. You considered him for a moment. Despite his old age, he still seemed full of life. His eyes twinkled beneath his now grey hair, and still the sunlight danced happily along his skin.  

‘Remind me again why I have to go to this wedding?’ you said, letting your eyes drift back to the view.

KNB x NBA

 Ok, I’m just going to throw a wild card out here and analyze the current placement of Kurobasu. Normally, I was expecting the choices to be based on colour or personality, but when Akashi came out I was completely thrown off. I think there is a clear pattern for why they were placed on this teams though.

My theory is they’re being placed into the teams where the greatest NBA legends are born (because they are the GOM so the teams have to be legendary too??). BUT! It’s more than just aesthetics! (I’m sorry Akashi, but the yellow jersey isn’t your color :-/ ) I think the GOM-Legend matchup is more on their playing styles!

So they’re not totally random! Then again, I could be overthinking things. If I am, this is probably a short rant of an obsessed KNB fan ^u^?

ANYWAY, Here’s the roster so far:

1. Kagami - Chicago Bulls
Michael freaking Jordan started from the Chicago Bulls. Kagami wears Jordans.
Also, have you seen this man jump? There’s a reason why Mike’s #1. He can jump crazy high and his drive to become the best is what put him at. the. top.
Michael Jordan wasn’t only amazing in terms of offense, his size allowed him to be a great defender too. 


2. Kuroko - San Antonio Spurs

Have you guys heard of Tim Duncan? No? Well let me introduce you to the man Shaquille O’Neal called “The Big Fundamental” and the one who placed the Spurs on the map. Let me tell you that name wasn’t born without a reason.
He plays similarly to Kuroko - in the sense that his plays are more quiet and a little “vanilla” unlike the other more flashy legends. He lacked a “style” in a sense, but not having one was his style! His style was consistent and amazingly persistent - often perceived as “boring” by some, but it was perfect for masking his individuality on the court. No one could pinpoint just Duncan. He had a very sneaky playing style - amazing footwork that allowed him to dance around his opponents. Literally, he was the perfect shadow.


3. Midorima - Boston Celtics
OK, first things first: makes sense because of two things: GREEN EVERYWHERE and the symbol is the leprechaun, a symbol of good luck!

Next, other than this lining up perfectly, let me tell you folks about Larry Bird, one of the greatest legends of all time (my idol tbh and a legend alongside Magic Johnson). Larry Bird is well known for having one of the quickest shot releases of all time. His shots could go past any defender. By the time they saw him shoot, the ball had already left his hands. Let me say again, he is one of the greatest shooters of all time.

Why not Curry and his amazing three pointers? Stephen Curry is only 6′3″! Larry Bird had a build that towers at 6′9″, he nailed the shots each time, and he’s in green too. Go figure. (There are other great Celtics like Paul Pierce or Bill Russell but I love Larry Bird OK)

4. Akashi - LA Lakers
Why not Sacramento Kings or a team that’s totally red? I thought he would be because Kings = Emperor or something. But, this makes more sense. The LA Lakers had several legends but I think the key player here is Magic Johnson. Johnson is one of the greatest Point Guards of All time and is a name that runs in every basketball nut’s household. He wasn’t just incredibly skilled, he made the plays that brought the trophy home. He virtually improved all the players around with each pass or move. Each pass and set was calculated - surprising many of his opponents! In a way, his plays brought a little magic to the court, hence the name. He was one of the few players in all of history who could not only play all roles, but DOMINATE EACH ONE. He was THE PLAYMAKER, THE MASTERMIND, THE KING ON THE COURT. If you’re looking for a player with irl Emperor’s Eye, Magic Johnson is the player with that exact ability.

Also, he and Larry Bird’s rivalry is one of the greatest in NBA history too! (Like the competitiveness between Akashi and Midorima)

Unrevealed so far and my predictions:
Murasakibara -
Houston Rockets (Possibly Yao Ming)
<3 Kise <3 - Golden State Warriors (Possibly Stephen Curry)
Aomine - Cleveland Cavaliers/Miami Heat (Possibly Lebron James)


But these ARE JUST MY THOUGHTS AND IN NO WAY AM I A DECISION MAKER FOR WHAT THEY ACTUALLY DECIDE!  Just trying to understand why they’re in the teams they are now huhu

If y’all have any thoughts or other predictions that might be even better, i’m totally open to hearing them!! XD I’ll probably upd8 this every time they release a new one X3 or keep my thoughts to myself

QUEENS REC : list of wonderful and amazing Malec and Shadowhunters fanfictions' writers - PART 1

I wanted to make a fanfics rec for a long time but there are so many it’s impossible de choose ! I can’t. So instead, I’ve made a writer’s rec. A queens rec, because let face the truth: they are queens. All of them (and a few kings, probably. I still haven’t met you sorry).

We have so many talented writers in this fandom, it’s a blessing. I said it before but I’ll never stop saying it: thank you, you gave me back the love of reading.

Selecting only a few was heartbreaking. Please forgive me. You all deserve a crown. I’ll give you one, in time, I promise.


If you don’t know her work you’re really missing something. Her two fics are simply amazing !

She has a way to take us so deep in hers characters mind that is stunning. Hers fics are not only Malec center so everyone has a place and is very well studied. It’s invigorating ! She doesn’t leave anyone on side and even has interesting OCs.

How to save a family is really brilliant for that. My favorites are Maryse and Jocelyn, two astounding mother figures with all hers complexity. The case of Max is also a very interesting and emotional one. I’ll let you find out why.

The confrontation between Alec and his AU self in Never stand between two mirrors is worth reading ! Intense and funny moments guaranteed.

Her serie of prompts Spaces Between is also remarkable and offer the scenes and POV we deserve.

Never stand between two mirrors
How to save a family*
Spaces between (serie)*


Lucile has gold in her hands. Really. She’s one of the best autor I ever read. But you surely already knew that.

You’re caught as soon the first sentence and emerged only at the end, three hours later (for the short one). You haven’t drunk, eaten or moved between. You just read because that was the only think you could do. Maybe you live-tweeted to yell at her but that’s the only exception.

Yes, I’m a big fan and have literally no will-power when it comes to Lu’s fics. First I scream when I receive the email or see the post, then I drop everything I’m doing to go read it. And let me tell you : I regret nothing. I’m not disappointed. Ever.

She has already written so many fics and I didn’t even read them all (I know I’m a walking scandal, don’t remind me ! I live with the shame everyday) but if I’ll have to chose one, it will be without a doubt Bright Lights, Small Town. This fic is a masterpiece. A beautiful, so well-written original story with strong and deep characters. It’s Magnus’ POV and he is just so endearing and vulnerable that you want to protect him at all cost ! This fic is about family, friendship and love. It’s about grief, moving on and make choices. This fic is about finding a home and there is not a single thing I don’t like about it. It has touched me in a way I can’t described. Run for it if you haven’t.

To build a home (serie) : Bright Lights, Small Town and extras
Stars Aligned (serie) : And the oscar goes to and following
I see fire
Dead men no tales
Invictus


Basically you’ll need a blanket, severals hot chocolate (or tea), a lot of tissues, and a loving pet or a plush to get over of her AU fics.

I’m not kidding ! Paparazzi is the most painful fic I’ve ever read, and I’ve read a lot. My heart broke at each chap and there 17 of them so far. The last part of chap 1 of Addicted to you put me on the floor for hours and chapter two was a roller-coaster for my nerves, always promising the sweet candy of happiness and fluff only to take it away before you could even grab it. In summary, Alec is an idiot and Magnus needs a hug or vice-versa. They’re two idiots in love with each others but don’t realize or accept it and make us suffer for their ignorance or stupidity.

But like her writing is so good I’m willing to suffer, and so should you. When angst is well-written it becomes more bearable (do you see the auto-persuasion here?). So be warn but go for it anyway. She promised happy ending so what’s a few stabs in the heart ?

Paparazzi*
Addicted to you
My true love gave to me


Jackie. Where do I begin ?

Once again I think I don’t have to introduce you to Take me to church, or as we can call it : the longest slow burn ever made. I really hope I don’t. If I do let me ask you something: where you living in a cave without wifi ? That the only excuse I’ll accept.

Slow burn takes all its meaning here. I hope you have patience. Like a lot. No seriously. Love make people blind but at this point it just ridiculous and you just want to bump into the story and scream at this two idiots desperately in love with each others. And you know the worse ? You watch them fall in love. Both of them. So you know. Izzy knows. Jace knows. Catarina knows. Everybody knows. Except them of course.  And on  top on that you have cute Clace and Sizzy, a strong parabatai bond, a brilliant Max Lightwood, Ragnord and Cat as friends of the years but for each year, and a helpful Raj.

I’ve hesitated with Queen of roller-caster because damn I hope you have a good heart. I don’t know how mine survived. Jackie have a way to snap your happiness in one sentence, make you scream of fear the next one to finally made you melt of cuteness two second later. It’s incredible. Seriously my heart had beated so fast so many times while reading this fic ! But you feel so alive, it’s worth it.

And her writing is just a blessing. I don’t count the number of times I had to stop reading because a sentence was so beautifully written that I had to take a moment. There is talent here. This fic really has a particular place in my heart. It’s one of the most beautiful and powerful love story I had the chance to read.

Oh and Fools rush in is extra ! Very different, much more fun and lightly that TMTC but still with angst because it’s Jackie and she can’t help it.

Take me to church*
Fools rush in*
Complete me


I was about to post this rec but Sam posted chapter 17 of In the sin bin before I could and now I don’t think she deserve to be in it anymore…

Yes that chapter ruined me and I’m still pissed. Who’s else ? Raise your hands !

Who else was already on the floor because of the last part of chapter 16 ? Welcome to the club.

And did you see it coming ? No ?! Yeah me neither ! And do you know why ? Because that’s what Sam does ! She always find something to surprise us (or kill us in that case). You think it’ll be okay, they’re going to be happy and then BAM cliffhanger, everything falls apart. How many times did she do that in 17 chapters ? (It was rhetorical question don’t answer that. I don’t want to know). I’m talking about ITSB but chapter 13 of Home was the same. If you read it now you’ll just have to click on next chapter, we had to wait a whole day to find out ! Hearthless.

I’m yelling because that’s what I do but ISTB is a must-read and a fantastic original story. I didn’t know anything about hockey, it’s not really a famous sport in France and I’m the less sportive person you’ll ever met. But reading Sam’s games ? Jesus I hope you have a good heart and aren’t in a public area. It’s more than likely that you’ll scream (of joy and frustration).

But ISTB is not about just hockey. Is about incredible and deep characters. You’ll find in love with Max Lightwood, he has even less chill than Lu. You’ll find in love with Magnus and his suits, Alec and his bread (just kidding they have amazing personality too). You’ll watch them fall in love. Because ITSB is about love, but also about friendship, family, support and team up. ITSB is about taboo and fame, about press and blackmail, about finding yourself and fight in what you love and believe.

There he was, eyes glued to the book he was holding between his bare and smooth fingers. You noticed the way he’d struggle to keep his dry and brown hair out of his face as he squinted to read the words on the pages, and the way he’d nod a little in understanding as he flipped through every page.

The library, almost empty and quiet, seemed to not affect you as you continued staring at him. The patter of raindrops hit the glass panels of the windows as your eyes shifted to see gloomy clouds towering the sky, as flashes of lightning came like a shock.

You were hit out of your trance when you felt a hand flick the back of your head lightly, causing you to let out a small cry. As soon as you saw the familiar figure chuckling in front of you, you hit him back lightly.

“It’s late now, what are you still doing here in the library” Haechan asked as he took the seat beside you, then crossing his arms, a look of suspicion and care on his face.

You sighed as your hands reached out to stack the pile of books in front of you, “Last minute revision for finals, what’s new”

As soon as Haechan heard your sentence, he gave you another flick on the forehead, then shaking his head, “Please go get some rest, you’re already pushing yourself so hard, don’t overwork yourself. Now pack your things, i’ll send you home”

You smiled softly at his words. You love it when Haechan was all caring and protective over you, unlike his usual self where he’d constantly tease and make fun of you. He was your best friend and treated you like one.

You nodded your head, “Yeah yeah okay Mr Lee”, as you gathered all your materials into your bag. Your head shifted slightly to take one more glimpse at him- he was still deeply immersed in the book, pouted lips and raised eyebrows.

Haechan noticed, then turned over to take a look at the young boy who had been sitting there for hours- as long as you were.

Haechan’s lips immediately formed an ‘o’ shape, then turning into a smile. He got up from his seat as he made his way towards the boy.

You noticed them exchange a few smiles, followed by a handshake that they both seemed very familiar with. You frowned in confusion as you saw the two making their way over, Haechan looking like an excited little puppy, the other boy, just smiling nervously as one hand was holding the book he was reading, the other, clenched tightly to his bag.

“Y/N!!! It’s time for my childhood best friend to meet my high school best friend, i’m so happy to see you here hyung!” your best friend blabbered on as you continued observing the other boy.

He bowed slightly towards you, then attempted to reach his hand out to greet you. But immediately dropped his bag on the table, as though forgetting he was carrying it. You saw a light pink shade take over his cheeks as he laughed nervously, “I-I’m sorry, I’m Mark by the way”

You giggled at his silliness, causing him to blush even more, as you gladly took his hand in yours, “I’m Y/N, nice to meet you”

Haechan clapped his hands as he slung his arm around both Mark and you, “Okay now that you two know each other let’s go hehe”

——

It was as though it was only yesterday that Haechan has introduced you to Mark. You were now in Haechan’s apartment, watching the two boys fight over a game they were playing on the television as you laughed at them from the side.

“Y/N!!! Mark hyung is bullying me, he won’t let me win” Haechan pouted to you as ge crossed his arms, acting like a small child. You saw Mark shrug his shoulders, then gave you a cheeky smile.

Which for some reason, made your heart beat faster.

You tried to hide the pink that was slowly appearing on your cheeks, “Oh please hyuck, maybe you just suck at the game, that’s why he won!”

Mark looked over to smile at you again, giving you a thumbs up.

You felt butterflies in your stomach.

Haechan looked at you disgust as he scoffed, shaking his head, “I did not introduce him to you a few months back to be treated like this. This friendship is over”

You made your way to the couch, where the two were, as you pinched Haechan’s cheeks and cooed at him, “Aw someone’s upset”

He stuck his tongue out at you, then crossed his arm, “Yeah because someone’s TAKING SIDES.”

You shook your head a little, before patting his head, then giving him a small hug, which he, like always, gave in to you and hugged you back.

Mark watched awkwardly from the side, just laughing at the both of you, unsure of what to do.

“You two look cute together…”

Mark’s eyes widened as soon as he realised what he just said, apologising to the both of you and awkwardly laughing. You pushed Haechan slightly away from you upon hearing his words, shaking your head and pointing at him, “Me? And him? No thanks”

Haechan rolled his eyes as he gave Mark a pat on his back, “Please hyung, never in my lifetime”

But you felt your heart sinking. Why’d Mark think of that?

——

It seemed as though it all happened in a rush. You couldn’t clearly remember how you fell so deep.

You started noticing Mark more, every of his habits, his likes and dislikes, and everything he did seemed to make you happy, the way no one else could.

You’d start blushing whenever you were near him, and as days passed, you found it even harder to get comfortable with him. It was as though something was holding you back.

You realised how you’d get all jealous and upset when Mark didn’t have the time to hang out with both you and Haechan, and how he’s constantly running on mind almost every second, even when he’s right there beside you.

You had fallen for him.

As much as you wanted to tell him and show him, Mark seemed as though he wasn’t trying to strengthen your friendship, as if something was holding him back too.

You noticed how he would always keep quiet and not say any words when he was with you alone, but would be the total opposite when he was with Haechan.

He’d get all nervous and stutter on his words while talking to you, and you also realised how he’d stare at both you and Haechan whenver you all interacted or had skinship with one another.

It seemed as though he didn’t want to be your friend, and that affected you deeply.

Haechan eventually found out your feelings for Mark one day where he caught you staring at photos of the both of you, and how you would always get defensive when he talked about Mark.

Of course, he supported you and your decision, and promised to help you out.

——

You were resting your head on Haechan’s shoulder in the school library, one of his hands casually scrolled through his phone screen, the other, playing with your hair.

You let out a sigh, “It’s been two months hyuck, i don’t think he has feelings for me, should i just give up?”

Haechan shook his head, then assured you in his sweetest tone, “No, i’m sure he does. I’ve never seen hyung get this nervous to anyone before, just wait for a little while more.”

You frowned slightly, closing your eyes, “Sigh this is so tiring, thank you for being here.”

Haechan let out a small laugh, then pat your head, “Of course, i love you”

“Oh… I-I’m sorry…”

Your body immediately jerked up to the familiar voice, and you were greeted by a blushing Mark, his hand behind his neck as he avoided eye contact with you.

“I thought i’d come visit you two but i- uhh.. sorry to interrupt that moment, i got to go… You two look cute by the way”

Mark flusteredly tried to explain himself, still ignoring eye contact with you. Haechan tried to explain to him, but before he could finish his sentence, Mark was already at the entrance, ready to leave.

This was your only chance.

You got up quickly from your seat as you ran after him, ignoring the glares from the other people in the library. You were confused and it felt as if you were going to cry.

After a few seconds of calling after his name, Mark finally stopped as he looked at you nervously, “I-I didn’t mean to interrupt that-”

But you hugged him, tears flowing down your cheeks.

He stopped at his words, as his body stiffened up from your hold.

“What… Y/N if Haechan sees this he wouldn’t be happy- I’m-” Mark said softly as he tried to push you away, but you held on tight to him, your face in his chest.

“Mark, it doesn’t matter what Donghyuck feels”

Mark stared at you in confusion, his heart beating quickly as he was unsure of what to say. He tried pushing you again, “But… Don’t you like him? And he seems like he likes you too, he’d always talk about you and-”

“Mark i like you, in fact, i love you. For months now. I don’t know how all this happened but i’m thankful that we became friends and you don’t have to return the same feelings as me i just needed to let these all out”

You felt his body soften at your words, then you felt his hands cupping your cheeks as he brought it up to meet his face. You met his soft gaze and you let a small smile, wiping away the tears that had already stained your cheek.

His eyes still showed signs of lost and confusion, but he took a deep breath and said softly, “I like you too Y/N… From the day we met to the day we went to the cafe for a small date. But i noticed how you’d always get so close to Haechan and how you two would hug and tease each other, it’s as though you two are a couple…” he paused to see you giggle, making him blush a little.

“… and Haechan would always talk about how good you were in your studies, and all of your good points. He seemed really in love with you. So i didn’t want to spoil the relationship the both of you had. I distant myself and i told myself you wouldn’t return my feelings but now i’m just… wow”

You immediately smiled at his words, wrapping your arms around his waist again, “Thank you Mark, for everything”

Within a few minutes a breathless Haechan appeared in front of the both of you, his worried expression turning into a happy one when he saw the position the both of you were in, as he pat the both of you on the back, “I’m happy for the both of you”

Mark offered his hand to him, and the two started doing their usual handshake. Haechan looked over to you and gave you a thumbs up, before linking arms with the both of you, “Okay now, let’s go have lunch with the new couple.”

“Oh and hyung… Good luck on dealing with her” Haechan said teasingly to Mark, causing you to hit him slightly, as the three of you walked down to the cafeteria laughing at each other, the way it always was.

"You fainted, straight into my arms. You know, if you wanted my attention you didn't have to go to such extremes." ~ James March

*Your POV*

Shivering, I looked at the door, unsure if I should enter or not.

Just the name Devil’s Night sent chills up and down my spine, so when James had invited me I was extremely hesitant. Still after all he had done for me, I felt as if I couldn’t refuse.

Sighing with fear, I pushed the door open to see a groups of men talking with a single women, and a man sitting at the table by his self. Attempting to block out the conversation of the people I walked passed.

“Ah and who are you supposed to be?” The man questioned as I sat next to him.

“I’m sure I don’t understand…. My name is Y/N. Y/N Morrison. Who are you?”

“John Lowe.” He smiled slightly and held out his hand, “So you have no clue what’s going on either I take it?”

“None. I have only lived here about four or five months and I still don’t understand this hotel” I laughed shyly, shaking his palm, “I don’t even know why I was invited to this party. Everyone here is just acting so…. strange.”

He nodded in reply, “Doesn’t help that everyone here is a claiming to share the names as serial killers.” I raised my eyebrows in disbelief, “Yep. From Richard to James Patrick March himself.” This time, you looked at him confused.

“James Patrick-”

“Alright folks! Looks like everyone is here! Lets get started! Only so many hours in the night.”

“Dibs on sitting by the chick.” A man with sunglasses on smirked at me, “She’s even still go a heartbeat. I can hear it all the way over-”

“No, Richard!” James interrupted, glaring at me and moving towards me quickly, wrapping an arm on my back, “She is to sit between me and John. Where her name card lies. Like we always do things.”

James then sat everyone down and grinned darkly, a smirk present just from his eyes. Such a smirk that though I considered myself to be close friends with James it lead me to began to grow fearful and suspicious.

“Alright. Now everyone, lets go around the circle and introduce ourselves. Starting with you John.” He smiled brightly tilting his head to the man on his right and grabbing my hand which caused me to tense up.  

Of course I forgot to mention how nervous skin to skin contact freaks me out… Silly Y/N with her insecurities. Why would you think of speaking up?

“And you, my dear?”

I looked down and blushed, “Um…. I’m Y/N Morrison… I am a student studying musical theater and I am twenty….”

“And still breathing..” The only other women laughed, “Got a heartbeat. Blood flowing.”

“Everyone does.” I cut her off, confused. "They are signs life, are they not?“ I looked at James, my puzzled look not falling.

"Of course dear. They are merely toying with you.” He spoke wrapping his free arm around me and shooting the others a glance. Then he freed my hand, grabbing his cup, “Well then… Shall we? To us! The greatest killers of our time. To John, our newest prodigy. And to the lovely Y/N.” He smiled, handing me a glass of water, “To us!”

“To us!”

I sighed as I watched everyone sip there drink and looked down twiddling with your fingers when John looked my way.

“Hey. Why didn’t you drink anything?”

I looked at him for a moment before looking down, “Dad was an alcoholic. Killed both himself and my mum while driving home from a date. I was just sixteen… I swore I’d never drink again.” He nodded and gently pat my shoulder before looking at his glass.

The women who introduced herself as Aileen smirked and attached herself to me causing me to stiffen and look to James frightened but he had no eyes on me, “C'mon now..” She spoke, breaking an arm out of our hug and grabbing my wine glass, prying my mouth open with the other and forcing the liquid onto my mouth, “It’s a party. Live a little.”

The moment the liquid touched my mouth I knew it want alcohol.

Has James truly drugged everyone? These are his friends……..

I closed my eyes, attempting to focus despite the supposed booze trying to cloud my thoughts but it didn’t ease anything as I blanked out and could feel myself falling.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

All I could hear was throbbing in my ear and I couldn’t open my eyes. I couldn’t move and oh… I was so so terrified…

Am I dying? What is going on? What was in that drink? James… Oh no… James. I can hear him screaming. He is scared. Livid. Why can’t I help him…

”Y/N… It’s been a week…”

Oh James… It’s so cold…

“Y/N… I need you to wake up now.”

I want to wake up but it’s so dark… It’s so dark, I don’t-

“I know you can hear me love. I’m sorry that I did this to you… I know you didn’t want to come but I just wanted you to meet everyone.” He sighed sadly and I could feel a pang in my chest, “I need you to know how much you really mean to me. You really are a light. My light… The only thing I need to save.. To keep me sane.. To keep mine.”

I am trying James. I am. I don’t underst-

“Wake up. Y/n… I need you right now… Please. Please.”

Okay

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I woke up with a gasp and I clung onto a figure as he whispered sweet nothings into my ear.

James…

“Oh my sweet Y/N…”

“James? What happened?”

“You fainted.” He smirked, “Straight into my arms. “ Silence filled the room and in his joking matter, broke it by saying, “You know if you wanted my attention you should have just asked.” I laughed and let go.

“No really James.”

“It matters not now. You are awake and I am not letting you go again.” He grabbed my arm and smiled. “Now, lets ignore last night ever happened. And start over. Hello. I am James Patrick March, owner of this hotel and I love you.”

“Hi. I Y/N. I love you too.”

Home.

One of the smaller kingdoms in the land, it was what you considered a hidden gem. The agriculture flourished. Nature was at its most thriving in this kingdom. Closer to the centre of the kingdom where the palace was situated, you could find the tallest, leafiest trees surrounded by shrubbery, and flowers of the most vibrant colours ever imagined. Plant life was the most diverse here, creating a mosaic of wildlife. The marketplaces and all other architecture were built around this, oftentimes even incorporating the plants into the structure.

As you walked closer to the edges of the kingdom, the eccentric green plants gave way to vast fields and farms, the largest of which were on what you had affectionately nicknamed, “The Outer Rim”. The outskirts of the kingdom. This is the part of the kingdom that you called home.

could you please do a celebrity!reader x tom holland where they're in a relationship and end up working with each other in a movie and they always get teased about being together? thanks in advance x

It was one of the worst-kept secrets of the year, the fact that you and Tom Holland were in a relationship. You had managed to keep it out of the tabloids for about 3 weeks before your loving boyfriend stated in an interview that he was going on a date with you tonight. The media loved it, and quickly became fixated with the two of you. You got followed around the place, booked for interviews together, constantly got asked where your other half was. It was both annoying and lovely.

Hi! I read that you wouldn't be bothered by a new prompt so I decided to send you one. Yousef is back from Turkey and is invited at Jamilla's wedding; during the party he overhears some of Sana's aunts asking her about her romantic life and since he notices that she's getting uncomfortable (they're "together", but no one knows) he decides to help her. I hope you decide to write it, let me know! 😊

Hi!!

Thanks for the prompt. I hope you don’t hate me for this but I completely changed the prompt…like instead of them being together I wrote it as they’re not together but Yousef steps in to save Sana and says he’s her boyfriend so yupp, fake relationship prompt!

I really hope you don’t mind I changed it and that you like it!

Thank you again!!

————————x————–

“Sana dear you look stunning tonight”

“Thank you aunt Amina” Sana said with a smile

After a year of preparation, the day of the wedding between her brother Abdu and Jamilla had arrived. The ceremony had been so beautiful and now they were at the celebration. She wouldn’t admit it but Sana had been kind of hoping that she wouldn’t run into her aunt Amina and her aunt Nayat. She loved them and they were always kind to her but they were also very nosy and Sana didn’t feel like talking to them in that moment. She looked around searching for an excuse to leave and, as always, her eyes landed in him, in Yousef. He was standing a few meters apart from them talking to Elias and the boys. He noticed her staring and looked at her with a smile that made Sana blush and look away in embarrassment.

“So Sana, how is life treating you?” Nayat asked

“It’s fine, I’m done with my second year of high school and I can’t wait to start the third one”

“Yeah, yeah, studying is important but what about you? How are you?”

“I’m fine aunt Amina”

“Just fine? Aren’t you…I don’t know maybe more happy that other times?”

“What are you trying to ask aunt Nayat?”

“Ah, honey, it’s pretty clear. Is there any special boy in your life?” Amina asked

“We would ask your mother but she wouldn’t tell us” Nayat added.

Sana just rolled her eyes and shook her head exasperated. Every time she was with her aunts they ended up having the same conversation.

“Oh, Sana don’t be like that, we just care about you and your happiness” Mina said

“Yes, I mean it’s totally fine if there’s no one in your life…I mean at your age I was already engaged to your uncle and well Jamilla is married already and…”

“We just don’t want you to miss your chance”

“I mean you’re still very young and beautiful but beauty doesn’t last forever and…”

“Sana, here you are. I was looking for you” a male voice interrupted the conversation.

Sana turned around and saw Yousef standing right next to her with a big smile on his face.

“Hi Yousef” she said relieved but also confused

“I brought you some tea, it’s your favorite” he said handing it to her

She smiled at him thankfully and took a long sip of it

“Oh sorry, where are my manners?” Yousef said turning to Sana’s aunts “I’m Yousef, Sana’s boyfriend”

Those four words were enough to make Sana choke on her tea and start coughing.

“Are you okay, love?” he said patting her back softly

“Boyfriend? Sana! Why did you let us rant about you ending alone when you had a boyfriend!” Nayat said excited

“Uh…” Sana looked from her aunt to Yousef not knowing what was going on

“Oh you know how Sana is, always so shy” Yousef said with his charming smile “It’s been really nice to meet you but would you mind if I take Sana with me for a moment? I really like this song and I’d love to dance with her”

“Of course sweetheart, you two enjoy” Amina said

“Shall we?” Yousef asked Sana who was still in shock

She just nodded and followed him to the dance floor.

“Okay, what was that?” she asked him as soon as they were far enough from her aunts

“I was trying to save you, it looked like you needed help” Yousef said shrugging

“And you’re only idea was to tell my aunts that you’re my boyfriend, in a room full of my family”

Again, Yousef shrugged with a smile

“I just saved you from a very awkward conversation and this is how you treat me? Harsh, Bakkous, really harsh” he said shaking his head as if he was offended. “I think the least you could do is dance with me”

Sana chuckled and nodded

“I guess that I have no other choice…since you saved me”

He smiled at her and took her hand while he placed his other hand on her waist, leaving enough space between them so she wouldn’t be uncomfortable. They swayed to the rhythm of the music while staring into each other eyes, unaware that they were being watched.

 -x-

“Aysha! Why haven’t you told us that Sana has a boyfriend” Nayat said as she stopped Sana’s mom, who was walking by them

“That Sana has a what?” Mamma Bakkoush almost yelled

“Yeah, that Yousef boy. He’s so charming” Amina said pointing at Sana and Yousef on the dance floor

“Yousef and Sana aren’t…”

“He introduced himself to us as her boyfriend, isn’t he cute?” Nayat interrupted Sana’s mom

“He did, huh?” she said “If you’ll excuse me I have to tell Sana something before I forget”

 -x-

“I didn’t know you were such a good dancer” Yousef said as the song ended

“We’ve only swayed to the music, it’s not like it’s that hard” Sana said laughing

“Still, I’m impressed”

“Sana, Yousef hi, I don’t mean to bother but…” Sana’s mom said as she approached them making them let go of each other a little startled “Could any of you please explain me why you aunts think you’re dating?”

“Oh…Mom look…”

“It’s my fault Mrs. Bakkoush. They were giving Sana a rough time and I stepped in saying that I’m her boyfriend so they’d leave her alone. I’m sorry I lied” Yousef explained

“I guess Amina and Nayat can be a little overwhelming sometimes”

“Sometimes? They always ask me when I’m going to get myself a boyfriend” Sana said exasperated

“I know habibti, you know how they are…I was just worried that you two were dating and you hadn’t told me…”

“Oh mom, you know that if I was dating Yousef I would tell you” Sana said

“And I would go with her to talk to you” Yousef added

“Not that we are thinking about dating I mean…” Sana said stuttering

“Yeah, right, we’re not…I mean that’d be…yeah…” Yousef stuttered too

“Aysha, leave the two lovebirds alone” Amina said as they approached them

“Ah, mother-in-laws, always so strict, right Yousef?” Nayat said winking at him “I bet you’re already tired of my sister here”

“Oh, no, no, I would never get tired of anyone in this family” Yousef said showing his charming smile once again

“Aw Sana, this boy is so nice, it doesn’t surprise me that you’ve chosen him” Amina said

Sana blushed and forced a tiny smile

“Yeah, he’s nice…”

“Nice? Oh come on girl, you can do better than that, does this boy treat you well? Do we have to reprimand him?” Nayat asked playfully

“Yousef is great” Sana said looking at him “He’s…he’s the sweetest boy I’ve ever met. He’s smart and funny and kind and…and he even knows how to cook”

Yousef, who was staring right back at Sana chuckled at that

“He really is perfect” Sana said almost whispering getting lost in his eyes

Mamma Bakkoush looked from her daughter to Yousef with a knowing smile.

“So we can trust you right Yousef? You won’t hurt my daughter” she said

“Hurt her? Never” Yousef said still looking at her eyes “I would never ever hurt her. She’s the best girl I know. I respect her and I admire her. Every moment I share with her is unique”

“So how long have you been dating then?” Nayat asked

“Huh?” both Yousef and Sana said as they came back to reality.

“How long have you two been dating” she repeated the question

“Six months” Yousef said at the same time Sana answered “5 months”

“So 5 or 6 months, then?” Amina asked confused

“Oh I count since we went on our first date and she counts since we first…uh…held hands” Yousef explained stuttering

“Held hands…right” Nayat said winking at them

“Aunt Nayat!” Sana said blushing

As much as she was enjoying the situation, Mamma Bakkoush decided to intervene.

“Hey, why don’t we leave them alone for a moment, we can go talk to Abdu” Sana’s mom said as she led her sisters away.

Sana and Yousef were left in an awkward silence. They were both kind of embarrassed about what they had said. Luckily Elias interrupted the silence as he approached them

Yousef, I was looking for you, we’re outside, come”

“Uh…” Yousef said looking at Sana

“It’s fine, I’m going to go talk to Jamilla” Sana said with a smile as she turned around and left

 -x-

Sana wandered around the room looking at her family and friends all enjoying the party. She wouldn’t admit it but she was actually looking for someone, someone who she hadn’t seen since he left with her brother, someone who was entering the room that exact moment and walking to her.

“Hey” Yousef said

“Hi”

“I just wanted to say goodbye, I’m going to leave, it’s getting late”

“Yeah, I actually think we’ll leave soon too”

“I’d offer to walk you home but I guess your family would want to leave together?”

“Yeah…but thanks” Sana said smiling

“Of course” he said nodding

“And Yousef…thanks for before…you know, for saving me”

“Anything for you girl” he said shrugging with a smile

Sana bit her lip as she took a step closer to him and kissed his cheek.

“What was that for?” he asked shocked

“Uh…my aunts, they’re behind you and they were looking so I just thought…yeah…” Sana said stuttering

“Oh I see…” Yousef said as something caught his attention behind Sana, not something, someone, her aunts to be more specific.

They were standing behind Sana so there was no way she could’ve seen them. Yousef smiled to himself as he leaned closer to Sana and pressed his lips softly against her cheek.

“In case they’re still looking” he whispered before pulling apart

Sana just looked at him blushing too surprised to react.

“Goodnight fake girlfriend” he said winking at her

“Goodnight fake boyfriend” she said back with a big smile.

Warnings: Swearing.
Word count: 678
Author’s note: This was so much fun to do oml


You pulled on the sleeve of your shirt down lower upon your wrist, ensuring that if covered the words tattooed there. You held the sleeve against the handle of the cart as you pushed in down the aisles of the grocery store so that you could be sure it wouldn’t budge.

The familiar words had been itching all day, something that was starting to more than bother you. You itched your wrist against your thigh as your other hand grabbed your phone from you back pocket, immediately dialling your father’s work number.

He answered after only a couple rings, his hello coming out strained from an obviously stressful morning at the office.

“Hi, dad,” you said.

“Oh, hello sweetheart,” he responded halfheartedly and you heard the rustle of papers being pushed about his desk. “What can I do for you?”

“Um, well…” you mumbled, not really knowing the best way to ask. “My tattoo’s been, like, itching, I suppose?”

You heard something fall in the background of the call, and you winced slightly at the sound.

“It’s been itching?” your father asked, his voice coming out in a wheeze.

You hummed, reaching out to grab a couple cans of beans off the top shelf and setting them in your cart. “It just kinda feels like pins and needles, I guess. It’s been worrying me a little.”

You waited for a response on the part of your father, but none came. “It’s not a bad thing, is it? They’re not dead or anything, are they?”

Your father chuckled, his smile evident through the phone. “No, sweetheart, they’re not dead,” he reassured you. “The same thing happened the day I met your papa.”

You froze in spot as these words reached your ears, brain barely processing them.

“I-I might be meeting them today?” you asked, a frown starting to make its way onto your face.

Your father immediately sensed your discomfort towards the idea. “They might not be that bad, sweetheart. You don’t know how you two will meet. It might be good reason for him to swear.”

“You try going around your entire life with ‘oh fucking christ’ tattooed onto your wrist!” you hissed into the phone, your jaw clenching. You rested your phone onto your shoulder, holding it in place with your head as you rubbed your hands over your face.

“You’ll learn to love it, sweetheart, just like you’ll learn to love them. You’re soulmates for a reason.”

You rounded a corner, mouth opening to respond when your cart banged into another. Your phone slipped off your shoulder, hitting the ground with a sickening crack.

“Oh fucking christ,” you heard and a man rounded the corner, bending over to pick up your phone. He flipped it over in his hands, slender fingers running over the shattered screen. He looked up at you, clear grey eyes holding no real visible emotion. “Sorry about that.”

“Say that again,” you gasped, unable to contain your shock.

“Sorry about that?” he asked, standing up to level with you.

“No, the other thing!” you yelled. You were just as shocked at your outburst as he was, but you couldn’t help it. You ignored the looks that you were getting from other customers, the only thing you could concentrate on was his eyes.

Those beautiful, beautiful eyes.

As realization dawned over him, he repeated his first words to you. He checked his own wrist, and let out a dry laugh.

“I never understood why you’d ask me to repeat myself, but after introducing myself like that I’m starting to get it.”

You couldn’t bring yourself to speak, only managing a smile as you pulled him into a hug. He was awkward and tense in your arms, only patting your back in response to your actions.

“I don’t really do hugs,” he whispered uncomfortably. You immediately let go, cheeks becoming red as you mumbled apologies. He laughed at your blushing face, rubbing his neck.

“I’m Levi,” he introduced.

“(Y/N),” you replied, smile never leaving your lips.

“I guess we’re soulmates, huh?”

“I guess we are.”
