Because I went through a funk and they sent me such sweet messages and they’re just amazing people in general and I want to thank them for being just the best girls and the best of friends a girl could ask for. I love them and I just want to say thank you guys!
I’m so scared because you never shut up about how much you love me, but my brother’s best friend couldn’t shut up either about how much he loved his girlfriend, and now 2 years later he finds himself looking at other girls in nightclubs. He’s getting tired of her eventually, and the saddest part is that she’s still into him.
For now you never let go of my hand when we’re in nightclubs, and you don’t want to dance with anyone but me, but I’m so scared that one day, 2 years from now, you’ll leave me alone on a seat, and your eyes will imperceptibly scan the crowd in search of other prettier, skinnier, funnier girls.
You will get tired of me eventually, and the saddest part is that, I’ll still be into you.
He didn’t know it back then. He didn’t care about it. Ignored all his classmates who were passing around lewd magazines and just continued browsing why on earth pluto was no longer a planet. The injustice!
When his classmates at the Garrison asked him if he ever had a girlfriend “Never had one.” “A boyfriend then?” “Nope. None of that either.” “But why?” “I was not aware it was a requirement, Charles.” Others thought he was a snob and a bit snarky after that.
At night he just read books. Sometimes he drew things like spaceships and alien warships. He loved outer space and he was going to be an ace pilot and be the youngest pilot to go on a mission. His roommate gave up inviting him to parties to meet possible mates. “Have fun.” “You too.”
When he wanted to be alone, he snuck up to the rooftop just so he could trace the constellations and get more inspiration for his drawings. He liked the quiet and the natural light the moon gave him to see what he was drawing on his skethpad. “What are you doing in a place like this at this hour, cadet?” Keith looked up to see the one and only Garrison Golden Boy. “I could say the same for you, Sir.” He got back to drawing. Shiro sat beside him and just watched him draw in silence.
It became a thing. Shiro finding Keith on the rooftop, reading or drawing. They usually didn’t even talk, until Shiro broke their usual silence. “How come you’re always up here? Why are you not with your friends? It’s not everyday you get to be in the city and have fun.” Keith shrugged. “Hmm. Not really my type of fun or thing.” “Huh. Interesting.”
They became friends after that. Their feet dangling on the rooftop as Shiro would tell Keith a joke or something that happened to him in class. Keith didn’t draw all the time, he’d have the sketchpad on his lap and just laugh and tell Shiro things too.
Their conversation led to talking about crushes one time, because that topic was always interesting. “Had my first crush back in elementary,” Shiro laughed. “A bit silly to be honest. Then she liked me back and we became a couple.” “Wow. That’s so… young.” Keith chuckled. “How about you? Who was your first crush?” Keith furrowed his eyebrows. “I’ve never had one.” “What?” Shiro asked, a bit scandalized at the revelation. “No way!” “I just haven’t seen anyone that way, I guess. If it happens, then it happens. But to be honest, I don’t think anyone will even like me since I’m not into that or see anyone like that.” Keith forced a fake cough. Shiro was silent for a while and then he smiled. “Keith, do you know the word for that?” “The word for what?” Keith looked confused. “The word for what I think you are,” Shiro smiled fondly. “It’s asexual. Or ace for short. It’s basically someone who doesn’t experience sexual attraction.” Keith blinked. “Oh.” Then he smiled. “I like that. Ace. What a nice word.” “It is. You’re literally an Ace Pilot.” Shiro laughed. “Oh, shut up.” Keith nudged Shiro playfully, causing his skethpad to fall.
The next few months they were on the rooftop, Keith started the talk. “I think I have my first crush now.” “Oh really? Who is it?” Shiro raised an eyebrow, curious. “It’s basically someone you admire, right?” “Yeah.” Keith nodded. “Okay, I’m sure it’s a crush then.” “Keith! Who is it? Oh my god. Don’t kill me this way, man. I must know!” Keith laughed. “Oh, I’m pretty sure you’ll know one day, Shiro.” Shiro sat back, thinking that was probably enough of an answer. “Okay, so you have this crush on someone now. What do you want to do?” “I might want to hold his hand one day. If he’d let me.” Shiro smiled at his friend. “I hope you get to hold that boy’s hand, Keith.”
A few months later, Keith asked Shiro if he could hold his hand.
couldn’t believe you had convinced him into doing this.
want me to what?” he’d asked, not sure if he’d heard you correctly.
just need you to pretend to be my boyfriend for this event since… I kinda
already told everyone that you’re my boyfriend and you were coming. There’ll be
free food and alcohol and you won’t even have to talk to many people!”
had naturally intrigued Derek but there had been something that he couldn’t
help but ask you.
You picked me for your big fake boyfriend plan? You know I don’t… get along
well with people around here. Why not Parrish?”
could see Parrish pulling up now at the event in his police uniform. Parrish
wasn’t a bad guy but Derek couldn’t help but clench his fists at the sight of
him. He wasn’t one to get jealous easily but this guy just put his teeth on
Parrish! Why didn’t I think of that?” you’d said angrily, shaking your head,
“well, it’s too late. Will you just please go with me, Derek? It’s just one
night. We can fake break up the next day.”
had then thought for a moment, making sure to avoid your eye. You had a
particular pleading look that you often gave him that made it hard for him to
ever say no to you. But he couldn’t resist and looked at you, and it was then
that he decided that he was going to be a part of your fake dating charade and
he was going to be the best fake date there ever was.
was pulled out of his trance, turning to see you hurrying towards him with a
grin on your face.
said I would, didn’t I?”
shook your head, “I just wasn’t sure. Wow, you look really good, you should
wear suits more often.”
always look good,” he offered his hand, smiling a little as you took it. Your
hand was so tiny compared to his. “You don’t look too bad either.”
was an understatement. Derek always thought you looked gorgeous but right now,
he was so blown away by how beautiful you looked that he had to remind himself
“Gee, thanks. We’re running a bit behind
– I’d planned to have at least 2 drinks by now.”
event was in full swing and Derek felt like he was in high school again. First
of all, the event was being held in
the school’s hall as the community one was under construction and second of
all, he found himself watching protectively over you as he heard several greasy
men comment on how good you looked.
was wondering when the two of you were going to get together,” Jordan Parrish
congratulated the two of you, avoiding Derek’s intimidating stare, “all (Y/N)
ever talked about was ‘how hot Derek is’.”
eyes widened, taking a rather large sip of your drink as you elbowed Jordan
throughout the night people had approached you and Derek and gave similar
comments (minus the snarky one Jordan gave), saying that they’d seen the two of
you out on dates and were wondering when you were going to call it official. In
all honesty, neither you or Derek had considered your outings to be dates but
now that he was thinking back on it, he wondered if he should start considering
them as just that.
proceeded to smile as Jordan winced from the hit you gave him, “well, it was a
surprise to me actually. I had always thought the two of you were going to get
(Y/N) has only ever had eyes for you!” Jordan glanced at your now nearly empty
glass, “want a refill?”
yes please. I’m gonna be needing something heavier at this rate.”
agree with you.” and with a wink, Jordan disappeared back through the crowd
towards the bar and Derek shifted his focus back to you.
feel a bit stupid for being jealous of him now,” he admitted, smelling the
embarrassment on you which only caused his smile to widen more. Derek honestly
couldn’t remember smiling this much since he was a teenager and it turned out a
lot of people at the event were being a lot kinder to him because of it.
well, I picked you as my fake boyfriend for a reason. It’s believable and
everyone seems to already think it was happening.”
wished Jordan would hurry up with that drink.
could hear your heart racing and you glanced up at him, something seeming to
occur to you as a surprised expression dawned on your face.
shit – you don’t actually like me, do you?”
leaned closer to you, his grin seeming rather wolfish now.
the sounds of it,” he pointed to your heart, “you feel the same way.”
was now the one taken aback as very quickly, you closed the gap between the two
of you and pressed a hard kiss against his lips.
werewolf powers.” Was all you said as a low growl came from the back of Derek’s
throat, Jordan now walking up from behind you with drinks in his hand. Derek
wanted to desperately kiss you just a little longer but as his eyes met briefly
with yours, he knew the whole dating charade was going to become a lot more
realistic and there was going to be endless amount of time to kiss you.
man. You probably won’t have a lot to contribute to the conversation
considering you’ve never had a girlfriend,” Stiles teased for what felt like
the millionth time as he and Isaac stood by the lockers waiting for the rest of
the group to arrive.
had just asked him for advice for an upcoming date but then took it back
quickly saying he probably would just ask Scott about it in the car. A low
growl escaped Isaac’s lips as he tried to remind himself that Stiles just
wasn’t worth it as the idiot seemed to get off on annoying him. And
unfortunately, it was working and sometimes Isaac was just a bit impulsive.
not one that you know of.”
eyebrow quirked up and a Grinch like smile came across his face, wondering if
he was hearing this right.

not supposed to talk about it.” Because
it isn’t real, Isaac thought.
nodded, “oh, yeah right, sure, sure.”
tone in his voice was enough for Isaac to glance around and see you and Lydia walking
in the opposite direction of where he was standing. You and Isaac weren’t close
but you got along like a house on fire, regularly working together on pack
‘missions’ or sometimes you just studied together in the library. He’d been
asked several times if he was interested in you, all those times he just
shrugged as an answer but if anyone was to believe he was dating someone, you
would be a good candidate.
Isaac said, “(Y/N) and I have been dating.”
looked as if he’d just discovered gold.
You want me to believe that? She’s way out of your league!” and then he was
shouting, “(Y/N)! Are you and Isaac dating?”
and you stopped your walking, Lydia raising her eyebrows at you as you turned
around slowly. Everyone in the hallway seemed to go quiet, interested in this
little bit of gossip and you met with Isaac’s horrified eyes.
yes?” was all you said before continuing on your way, Lydia beginning to smack
you excitedly at discovering this information as Stiles turning back to Isaac.
can’t believe you weren’t just fucking with me. You should invite her to come
bowling with all of us tomorrow night – Lydia will be there so she won’t feel
so weird. I seriously can’t believe you landed a girlfriend like that, fuck.”
couldn’t believe that he’d landed a fake girlfriend like that either.
night, Isaac found himself climbing into your bedroom and nearly scaring you
half to death.
the shit?” you hissed, pausing the show you were watching, “first you say we’re
dating and now you’re climbing through my window? Did I miss something?”
smiled sheepishly, brushing off a few sticks that got caught in his sweater
while trying to climb up through your window.
I know normal people just text but I thought I should just ask you in person. I
didn’t really think this through –,”
cut him off, “yeah, I can see that.”
fuck this is stupid. Stiles was being a dick and I kind of just said you were
my girlfriend so he’d leave me alone. I didn’t think he’d actually, uh, ask you
about it but do… you wanna go bowling with the group of us tomorrow?”
always had a crush on Isaac. He was one of the first guys to ever really notice
you and see you for more than just your looks and you wanted to throw one of
your pillows at him and demand he take you out on a proper date because you
genuinely liked him. But even though he freaked you out a bit by abruptly
climbing through your window at that time of night, you couldn’t resist him.
But before you leave, I already answered a bunch of our relationship questions
to Lydia so you’ll have to learn them. And you’re paying for my shoes and games
for bowling. Oh, and when we fake break up, it’ll be a mutual break up and it
can’t be weird.”
weren’t particularly eager to be out bowling with the group. You got along well
with everyone and they were being overly nice to you ever since they found out you
and Isaac were ‘dating’. A few times Stiles had said to you ‘really, Isaac?’
but other than that, no one really questioned it. The people in the group who
were wolves didn’t even suspect that the two of you were faking the whole
ordeal because they could hear how fast your heart rates were when you were
around one another, which made everything much easier.
said she invited you to come earlier in the week but you said no.” Isaac said,
his arm wrapped around you rather lazily as you watched Scott get up for his
first go. It felt rather natural for the two of you to be like this, having
small touches here and there and sneaking each other little glances. It was
comfortable and you had to remind yourself that this was all supposed to be a

know you’re up next, right?”
nodded, “yeah, that’s why I’m just a bit nervous.”
got a strike, grinning as he turned to the group who were all rolling their
eyes at the unfairness of him having werewolf abilities which were a rather big
help in the situation. You wished you had the abilities because you had no idea
what you were about to do.
Isaac helped you to your feet, picking up your ball for you and beginning to
walk towards your lane.
What are you doing?”
handed you the ball, smiling a little and back at the seats the two of you were
already earning a few ‘awes’.
help you, it’s the least I can do,” he handed you the ball and you held it in
the hand you were most comfortable with as he began to help line you up
correctly, “aren’t we just relationship goals?”
laughed rather nervously and Isaac stood behind you, his back pressed against
yours and you did your best to concentrate on your bowling but it was proving
to be difficult.
move sort of like… this,” he murmured into your ear and as he showed you the
throwing movement the second time around, you released the ball and it went
flying down the middle of the lane, hitting all the pins except one.
my god,” a grin came across your face as you turned around to Isaac who
couldn’t quite believe it either, “oh my god!”
flung your arms around his neck, kissing him excitedly and Isaac nearly fell
backwards at the sudden action. Eagerly though, he kissed you back, enjoying
the feeling and hoping that you’d do this every time you did well in the game.
come you don’t do that when I do well?” Scott asked Kira from their seats and
she nudged him playfully.
that you had to bowl once more and everyone was watching the two of you with
stupid grins on their faces, you shyly pulled away and began to walk back to
get another ball. Triumphantly, Isaac walked back to the group who might as
well have been clapping for him and Lydia patted his arm.
about time the two of you got together. (Y/N) always talked about how much she
liked you but you just ‘didn’t like her back’. I swear if you break her heart
I’ll break you.” She smiled sweetly and Isaac, who had to admit was a little
intimidated, smiled back as you successfully knocked down your final pin.
planning on it, Lydia.”
think I left my lacrosse jersey at your place,” you were startled by your
ex-boyfriend who was now standing beside your locker, an annoyed look on his
face as if it were you fault that he’d misplaced his belongings.
never took any of your lacrosse gear to my house.” You told him coolly,
shutting your locker which you weren’t actually done looking in and attempting
to walk away from him. To your annoyance, he followed.
if you see it then tell me,” he said and you rolled your eyes. The two of you
had been broken up for 3 months, you were certain you would have come across it
by now. “How’re you going anyway? Any new guys in your life?”
last bit he said with an amused tone, causing you to clutch your bag just a bit
tighter. You knew if you said no that he’d proceed to tell you the long list of
girls that were in his life now – some of which were in his life while the two
of you were dating.
believe it or not I actually have a boyfriend.”
saw a group of guys up ahead being rather rowdy and spotted Liam Dunbar, the
guy you were planning to find just earlier because he’d promised you his
research notes from one of your classes.
really? Do I know them?”
knew you should’ve just made up a name of some guy that went to another school
but because you just happened to be looking at Liam, you couldn’t help it.
ex looked surprised, “Dunbar? Seriously?”
that moment, Liam looked up, having been listening in on your conversation and
he was just as confused too. You couldn’t believe you picked someone so obvious
– and someone that was on the same team as your ex as well. You weren’t going
to get away with this.
sensed your embarrassment and excused himself from the group of friends he was
talking to. It was well known that he hated your ex and any opportunity to
annoy him was valuable.
babe!” he said cheerfully as he approached you, trying not to laugh at how red
you went as he placed a kiss on your cheek, “everything alright here?”
ex, to your relief, stepped away, “everything’s fine, man. (Y/N), if you see
the jersey let me know.”
your ex was safely out of sight, you turned to Liam who had a smug smile on his
– why?” you stammered, not really sure how you’d just managed that.
hate that guy,” he said, “don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone we’re not really
dating. We make a cute couple anyway, even if it’s fake.”
Liam, you don’t have to do this. I was just being stupid.”
shook his head, “he’s just told about 5 people that we’re dating. It’ll be fun!
We can get back at that guy all while doing our assignments. It’s a win-win
so the fake relationship began. To your surprise, you greatly benefited from
the situation. Creepy guys stopped bothering you, if you ever needed to get
warm Liam was perfectly fine with you just walking into his arms while he
talked with some friends and you ended up making more friends of your own. Some
of the seniors he hung around became protective of you and Lydia Martin, of all
people, started casually talking to you and giving you advice whenever you
needed it. You often forgot that you weren’t really dating because whenever you
were around Liam, your heart raced and you got butterflies as if you were
actually hanging out with someone you had feelings for. It wasn’t until you
sometimes saw your ex around the school who made snide and rude comments about
the two of you that you remembered what was going on.
all sweaty,” you laughed as you and Mason went onto the field after one of the
lacrosse games to congratulate Liam. He had a large grin on his face, pulling
off his lacrosse helmet and Mason gave him a high five.
after sports people get sweaty. Weird, isn’t it?” Mason said as you gave Liam a
short congratulatory hug, “poor Devenford Prep though… I should probably go and
see if Brett’s alright…”
I’m sure you’re really concerned about his feelings,” Liam said sarcastically
as Mason ignored him, walking over to the opposite (and losing) team.
how does it feel to win against your old school?”
amazing, actually,” he paused, “he’s watching again. Doesn’t he have anything
better to do?”
shrugged, knowing exactly who Liam was talking about, “maybe we should give him

dropped his helmet, cupping your face and kissing you passionately. You no
longer cared about how sweaty he was as you kissed him back, a part of you
relieved that you were finally getting to do this.
pulled away slightly, smiling like an idiot and Liam began to lean in again.
not even watching anymore,” you told him and he shook his head.
just really like kissing you.”
then you kissed him again.
is just relationship…ist,” you said angrily as you and Scott sat in the library
working on an assignment together. Scott raised an eyebrow, half listening as
he was actually working while you were flicking through a free Beacon Hills
magazine that you could always find lying around the town in random places.

put the magazine down in front of him so he had to actually look away from what
he was doing, pointing to the ad on the page.

to be there, single people should be the ones getting the discount.”
pushed the magazine back towards you, amused by your reaction.
so good about the restaurant, anyway?” he asked and you looked at him in
– how could you ask that? The food is the best food I’ve ever eaten. It makes
you want to cry rainbows it’s so good.”
snorted, “if you let me do my work I’ll be your fake boyfriend and go with
know the way to my heart, McCall.”
told maybe one person that you and Scott were going for the discounted food and
the word got out like Chinese whispers. Soon, everyone ignored the fact you
were just going to a restaurant together and were talking about how the two of
you were now dating. Both of you, even with Scott’s werewolf senses, were
oblivious to the rumours and were sitting at lunch together when Stiles was the
first person to sit down with the both of you.
can’t believe you two,” he said, you having your mouth full with your lunch but
raising an eyebrow at him, “you’re dating and you didn’t even tell me.”
nearly choked on your food.
you hear that?” Scott asked casually, not denying the claim.
fucking Lindsay of all people! She wanted to know how long it’d be going on –
how come everyone knew before your best friend?!”
looked at Scott and to your surprise, he shrugged.
were going to keep it a secret.”
was when the rest of the group sat down at the table.
it’s true then?” Lydia asked, looking between you and Scott and he took your
hand, giving it a small squeeze.
we’re dating,” and then he looked at you, “and we’re going to get a discount at
the Canary. I want to cry rainbows.”
knocked at Scott’s front door on Saturday night, ready for your fake date. The
two of you had found the whole fake dating thing to be rather amusing,
promising each other to keep it up until after the restaurant date and then
saying that you would break up afterwards because you realised you were just
‘better off as friends’.
Scott didn’t have a car you said you’d drop by his place after he was done
practicing lacrosse with Stiles and Liam that day. Usually you didn’t mind just
going on the back of his motorbike to places but tonight you actually got
dressed up a little bit and you couldn’t risk having helmet hair or your makeup
Melissa grinned as she opened the door, “come on in. Scott got home later than
expected and he’s nearly ready. God, I’m so glad he finally got the guts to ask
you out. He’s always gushing about his feelings for you and how he just doesn’t
know what to do about it. He adores you, really.”
mum?” Scott said, knowing he was too late in defusing the embarrassing
situation as he came walking quickly down the stairs.
your mother, it’s my job to embarrass you,” Melissa teased, “I guess that’s my
cue to leave the two of you alone. Have fun – be safe!”
only managed to yell a goodbye because Scott was pushing you out of the door,
eager to get out of the situation.
he warned, knowing you were ready to mention what had just happened, “you look
amazing, by the way.”
not often I dress up like this so you better appreciate it. So should the
discounted food, which I’m highly looking forward to.”
Canary was filled with couples of all ages and you and Scott fit right in as
plates of food were being placed in front of you.
we going to be able to eat this all?” you asked.
I’m a guy who also happens to be a werewolf. I could finish all of this on my
had a fair point.
two of you were complimented several times by waiters for being such a cute
couple, you both accepting these compliments graciously but with bright red
faces. Ever since Melissa made the comment earlier about the two of you, you
couldn’t help but wonder if she was joking because you’d always thought it was
just you that liked him.
is it?” Scott asked, noticing your wondering expression. You gave a small
shrug, feeling awfully shy which you weren’t usually like around him.
you really gush about having feelings for me?”
time, he was the shy one. Scott poked at his food, his cheeks reddening which
they had been on and off throughout the night.
wouldn’t say I gushed about it,” he finally admitted, “but I do talk about
liking you a bit.”
night had been a blur. The last memory you had was agreeing to do shots with
Stiles and the next day you woke up safely tucked in bed (thanks to Scott) just
before you launched yourself to the toilet to begin your day of being hungover.
You felt like shit. And even on Monday morning as you walked into school you
had a faint throbbing in your head and you were drinking more water when Stiles
never drinking alcohol again,” was the first thing you said to him, noticing he
looked a similar way to you.
me about it,” he agreed, “but we say that all the time.”
leaned against his side, waiting for the others to arrive when you got your
first ‘congratulations’ from someone. Neither of you were sure what the person
was congratulating you on but you thanked them anyway. Then it happened again
when a girl from your English class walked past, lifting her hand to high five
heard about Saturday! It’s about time you two got together!” she said excitedly
before walking into school.
you have any idea what’s going on?” you asked, confused as to what you just witnessed
as Stiles shook his head.
spent yesterday in the toilet. I didn’t even turn my phone on because the
brightness made me sick.”
waited a little longer and then Stiles suddenly perked up.
there’s Theo. I saw him at the party on Saturday with that guy – I think he’s
trying to get him to join his weird ass pack,” Stiles tried to tell you
quietly, hoping that Theo was listening in.
he could be into guys?”
you two were certainly a sight for sore eyes,” Kira suddenly said, appearing
beside the two of you and making you jump. When she noticed the confused, she
elaborated. “On Saturday, I mean. I didn’t know that getting the two of you
together meant getting you drunk and having you confess your love to one
another but man, it worked. That was gross.”
and Stiles nearly had a heart attack. Quickly, you stepped away from one
another, sharing a confused stare just as the bell went. Kira looked between the
two of you but didn’t say anything, leaving you two alone as she entered the
school on her own. Rather than say anything, you and Stiles went your separate
second period, your phone buzzed in your pocket. You glanced at the message
from Stiles which simply read to meet him at your spot. Your teacher was
reluctant to let you leave but when you did, you nearly sprinted to the spot
under the third floor corridor staircase where Stiles was waiting clearly
agitated. It seems you weren’t the only one having people come up to you and
congratulate you on officially dating Stiles and that many people saw your proclamation
of love which neither of you can remember.
you remember?” you began but Stiles suddenly pulled you to him, putting a hand
over your mouth. You were confused, only to hear Theo’s voice echoing the
corridor and you got the idea. You tried to listen in with him but Theo stopped
talking and soon you heard footsteps coming towards where the two of you were
swiftly kissed you, causing you to freeze up. You weren’t sure whether to pull
away or to kiss him back, only to understand what he was doing when Theo
finally stopped in front of the two of you.
“Whoa, Theo!” Stiles pulled away, “can’t a
couple just have a few moments of peace?”
eyebrows furrowed, “so the rumours are true.”
rumours? Didn’t you see us at the party?” Stiles wrapped his arm around you and
you smiled sheepishly. Your teacher was gonna be pissed at how late you were
going to be.
left by then.”
your guy friend?” you blurted out and Stiles tried to stifle a laugh. Theo
decided it was best to ignore you – which it was – and began to walk back to
class that he was obviously avoiding as well.
looked at Stiles with a questioning expression but he shook his head, “we’ll
talk about this later.”
never talked about it later but you had a silent agreement to continue the fake
dating. Both of you watched one too many movies and had the idea that if you
did the couple getting caught making out when you were actually searching into
something you shouldn’t be then it was a win-win deal. You were just too nosy.
basically detectives,” Stiles said, the two of you hidden in a corner of a club
watching a group of suspected chimeras. The two of you had been awfully touchy
the past few days, both of you trying to convince yourselves it was all just a
charade but it wasn’t. If you were able to convince your friends that you were
dating, the people you were closest to, then it wasn’t really fake.
you wanna go home and watch Star Wars?” you yelled over the music and Stiles leaned
his forehead against yours.

Your heart was racing and even when you got to the car, Stiles continued to
hold your hand on the drive back to his place.
our detective work, right?” you said jokingly to him when he pulled into the
driveway, Stiles walking quickly around to your side of the car to open the
door for you.
leaned in and kissed you, “this has never been about the detective work.”

chat you up during the last big lacrosse game. You looked around, trying to
find someone you knew to go to for help but the crowds of people all looked the

should that matter? Leave me alone.”
tried to remember how to throw a punch – you even considered making a scene by
yelling loudly for the creep to get away from you. But your rescuer stepped out
of the shadows, wrapping their arm around you and you nearly punched them in
the face until you saw who it was.

No problem here, Raeken!”
Theo stepped towards him, “because you better not be bothering my girlfriend.”
how scared you were, your heart was filling with butterflies for all the wrong
reasons. You had Theo in a few of your classes and god, you found him insanely
attractive. He was always sweet towards you and now you were never going to be
able to thank him enough.
not! I was just leaving, I swear!”

he disappeared into the crowd, Theo turned to you and gave you the most
charming smile. You knew about his powers and was fully aware that he could
probably smell your lust and nervousness.
mention it,” he winked before disappearing as well and you couldn’t help but
smile like an idiot.
next week you were sitting in the library on your own when Theo sat down beside

I want to make sure they continue to think that so those guys will leave you
there. They’ve been saying some disgusting things about you and either I beat
the shit out of them or they just get too freaked out to do anything in the
first place,” he paused, “you’re cute when you’re nervous.”

eventually you were comfortable enough with Theo to get a bit into it as well.
He never did anything beyond holding your hand or wrapping his arms around you but
soon you were beginning to realise you wanted more – and so did Theo. He tried
to convince himself that he was just doing this as a nice gesture because he’d
thought you were vulnerable but he came to realise that you were stronger than
even he was. You impressed him and Theo found himself lying in bed at night
wishing you were there and he got excited whenever he knew you were nearby.

As promised, a map of (general) Netflix MCU locations/territories in New York! This is more to give you a general sense of where people are located, how much turf they’re covering (not much, Matthew), and how much distance they have to travel to get to one another. It’s not precise because with few exceptions, we don’t know exact addresses, but I did my best.
Also please note that sometimes a show will say they’re in one place but they’re actually filming somewhere else (for example, much of Daredevil was filmed in Brooklyn and the building they use for Jessica’s “Hell’s Kitchen” apartment is nowhere near there). Where I recognized the location or neighborhood and it wasn’t textually contradicted, I placed the character there, but later shows may identify Trish or Danny or whoever as being based elsewhere. We’ll see!

This is probably silly to ask, but has anybody ever said something that really hurt Button's feelings?
It’s not a silly question! Buttons gets in several verbal fights with Mac during the time they spend together helping the BoS fight against the Enclave but not many of them sting as much as having to face the consequences of his own stupid actions and words. Gob is the kind of fellow Buttons would get along with well and that’s the reason why it hurts him so much that the ghoul will never forgive him for attacking Mac and saying the things Buttons said to him when he was desperate and seeing red. It’s ironic, really. Butts harbors hateful feelings forever and does not forgive easily - and yet, when someone treats him the same way, he’s all sorrowful and self-victimizing.
^Details of that Gob encounter will be included in the next comic!
seokjin x reader genre/warnings—
smut, fluff words—
Jin used to date, but things ended pretty quickly, realising that maybe you
guys weren’t meant to be. Over the past couple of months, he’s had to watch you
with another guy, knowing it wasn’t right. However, what can he do when he’s
stuck in a grey zone… he knows he too, isn’t right for you, but all he wants is
to hold you…?
No you're not, women dress femininely whereas men aren't pressured to wear makeup or maintain a feminine appearance.
Well, I dress femininely, and I am pressured to wear makeup and maintain a feminine appearance as my failure to do so is punished with harassment and violence. So, do you consider me a woman now?
No, you're not a woman, women experience misogynistic oppression, like catcalling and gendered wage gap.
I experience both of those things, people see me as a woman and mistreat me accordingly. So, do you consider me a woman now?
No, you're not a woman, woman is a biological class. You're a biological male.
I'm on HRT, and my hormone levels are within the average range of cisgender women. I've undergone physical changes due to HRT that have made my physical body more similar to the average cis woman. So, do you consider me a woman now?
No, women have vaginas.
I've undergone vaginoplasty. I have a functioning vagina, labia majora, labia minora, and clitoris. This is very personal, but, i can, in fact, orgasm. Do you consider me a woman now?
No, women have XX chromosomes. That's the REAL factor that determines our social role.
So, are you seriously claiming that everyone goes around treating other people based on their chromosomes, a quality that can only be factually known by a medical test?
But I've never gotten chromosomally tested. I don't ACTUALLY know what my chromosomes are. Have you ever gotten chromosomally tested?
Then your argument is completely flawed. You know with certainty that you present as a woman, are seen as a woman, and are mistreated as a woman, but you believe that those things are totally disconnected? That, instead, your chromosomes are what people are really seeing when they look at you? That's completely preposterous.
Well, what I really mean is, your birth assignment is what really counts, because that's when male socialization is initiated, which determines your entire mindset and outlook on the world, as well as how you treat other people.
It is true that socialization influences how we view the world. But let me ask you a question, you are female-socialized, right?
And female socialization includes subservience to men, right?
Yes, very much so. My parents were extremely traditionalist and imposed very strict gender roles on me as a child.
But right now you're not subservient to men at all, right?
Hell no. I'm a radical feminist, I'm a lesbian, I do not share the class interests of men and I work towards women's liberation from men as a class and, ultimately, the end of the restrictive system of gender.
So, logically, this would be an example of how your gendered socialization DIDN'T control your outcome as a person. Sure, you had to actively resist that socialization, but you've moved past that.
Yes, that's true, but the same can't be said about you, you're clearly male-socialized.
Hell no. I'm a radical feminist, I'm a lesbian, I do not share the class interests of men and I work towards women's liberation from men as a class and, ultimately, the end of the restrictive system of gender.
No, that's wrong! You can't be a lesbian, you're a male!
Don't say that to my wife, she's gonna be pretty mad if you tell her she's not really a lesbian. She's been a lesbian for years, I seriously don't see how my gender is any different than the gender of her last girlfriend.
You can't be a feminist, either! You're a male, there's no way you can understand the struggles of being a woman!
Didn't you post one of my essays on gender on your facebook wall?
Er, well, yes, but, that's before I knew that you were trans! See, this is more of your deceptive duplicitous behavior, concrete proof that you cannot overcome your male socialization or produce ideas that deserve consideration as contributions to feminism.
But didn't you praise that shitty liberal Male Feminist guy's anti-transgender article?
Yeah, but, at least he isn't calling himself a feminist, just a feminist Ally. So he's being honest and knowing his boundaries while helping feminism.
And didn't you praise that conservative politician's proposed ban on transgender people being able to use the restroom? Why the hell would you ever side with a conservative? You realize that he's the same guy who has previously worked to defund women's healthcare services and repeal gay marriage? Supporting him in any capacity gives him political capital that he'll be able to leverage for future reactionary policies, because he is literally an anti-feminist politician.
But he's one of the few politicians who's willing to stand up for a ban on transgender people in restrooms.
Yeah, because he's an out-and-out bigot against LGBT people and women. He's literally creating legal contexts for male violence against transgender women, something that you've PREVIOUSLY stated you're opposed to, but now apparently you're for it.
What male violence? It's just a legal protection for vulnerable women and girls in the sanctified space of the public bathroom.
The male violence of police officers, prison guards, and prison inmates. That's the male violence that you're totally fine with exposing trans women to. If you really gave a shit about reduction of harm, you would support my right to use whatever PUBLIC RESTROOM I wanted, and support gender-neutral restrooms. After all, butch cis women have been harassed and gender-policed in restrooms in states where that law was in effect, and had security guards called on them. Isn't that a fucking travesty? I support butch women's right to use women's restrooms, and if you support trans bathroom bans, you DON'T. Cis and trans women share certain class interests, and often times if you work against trans women's' class interests, you're ultimately going to harm cis women's class interests as well. We suffer a wage gap too, which is why so many of us are FEMINISTS.
