Client is every kind of -ist. Boss isn't having it, gets one client fired, his replacement replaced.
This happened a few weeks ago, and I’m still in awe of my boss, who made it happen. I work as a private security officer for a small but well respected company. The higher-ups are masters at getting contracted for big-name clients and they treat us employees very well.
We had been subcontracted by a larger security firm to run event security for a certain tech company’s event during a certain famous film festival. Some serious money was being thrown around to make this event happen, I was told $75k per day just to rent out the venue, $6 Million worth of equipment, the list goes on. It was a big deal. Our client’s representative, who we’ll call Paulie, was a New York native with a thick Brooklyn accent and wouldn’t have been out of place on the set of The Sopranos. He’d been flown in from his base of operations just to oversee this event. It soon became clear that he was going to cause problems. First off, the agreement between my firm and our client was to provide asset protection, meaning we were to make sure that none of the expensive, yet highly portable electronic equipment went missing. Yet as soon as we got there, Paulie decided to ignore all that and had us working the doors as glorified bouncers. All our previous instructions were to be ignored and Paulie was God. This pissed us off a bit, as we had picked our people with unobtrusive asset protection in mind, but whatever, we’re professionals and we’ll roll with it. Second, Paulie was an a**hole. Everything we did was wrong somehow, even when we did exactly what he wanted us to, we were doing it wrong. He’d berate the poor officer right in front of everyone. He’d change our instructions on a whim and get mad at us for not complying with the new instructions before everyone had a chance to be informed. Third, and arguably worst, Paulie was an -ist of every type. Racist, ageist, sexist, he was the worst. We brought in female officers and he’d inevitably stick them in the most out-of-the-way posts he could to make sure they didn’t have to interact with the tech people. Same went for every officer Paulie thought was over 35. Since we were working 12 hour shifts, we tried to rotate everybody through every post, but he’d take over the rotation and stick the “old” and female officers out of sight. It got to the point where we were seriously considering quitting the contract and we NEVER do that.
Enter my boss. Let’s call him Rick. Rick is ex military and his thing is he Gets Shit Done. Rick, like several of us, is a licensed Private Investigator as well as a Security Officer. Rick is borderline OCD when it comes to keeping records. Rick has hidden cameras. Rick wore a wire and recorded a lot of Paulie’s shit. That shit then hit the fan when Rick passed off supervision of the site to me for the day and went to a meeting with the higher-ups from my company and a conference call with the higher-ups from Paulie’s company, let’s call them D*cks and A**holes Inc, or D&A. The next afternoon, the A in D&A showed up and took Paulie into one of the rooms the tech people had been using for demos earlier that day and spent over an hour yelling at him. One of our people, a female officer with 15 years of experience, who had worked security at the freaking PENTAGON, and who had been shoved in a corner nevertheless heard the whole thing go down, as she was posted outside the door. According to her, Paulie said several stupid things, but the one that stuck out was, “These guys are weak! They’re bringing in freaking GIRLS…!” before being told to shut the hell up. Paulie was fired right there and escorted off the property. The next day, those of us who hadn’t been there to see it were told the whole story and we reveled in the fact that we wouldn’t have to deal with Paulie anymore. Morale, which had been at historically low levels, shot through the roof.
This would be a good place to stop the story, but as the infomercials say, “Wait! There’s more!”
A took over. Remember him? The A**hole in D*cks & A**holes, Inc? He was worse, in different ways. He was just as bad as Paulie, but he was much, much more subtle about it. And, I can’t stress this enough, he was an A**HOLE.
He tried to get me fired for talking to the client, the tech company’s people. The event was winding down by this point, and I had asked the guy in charge of the tech people a question about continuing security needs. Turns out, the tech company was taking their stuff out of the demo rooms and therefore wouldn’t need those rooms secured anymore, so we didn’t need an officer for that post anymore. A was livid that I had spoken to the client without his say-so and that I had “cost us THOUSANDS!” by so doing, which was total bullshit. A went to Rick and yelled at him about it, too. Rick, however, had my back and just shrugged the whole thing off.
This is going long, so I’ll sum up. Rick was eventually forced to employ the same tactics he had used against Paulie and another conference call was made. Turns out, D&A had been bought out by another company, and since A was a founder, he didn’t get fired, but he did get sent home and yet another guy from the bigger company was flown out to oversee the last few days. That guy was pretty cool and we had no further problems.
The icing on the cake is that the tech company had seen all the bullshit my people had been put through and had been impressed with us. We’ve been asked to provide security services for their next event.

A/N: This is my submission for the lovely Kait’s ( @bionic-buckyb) 5k AU Challenge. Congrats on the followers, friend! My prompt was “Can you please come over so I don’t feel so alone?”
“Girl, why are you in such a rush?” Alya asked, watching her best friend gather her things in a hurry.
“I forgot about something!” Marinette fretted, dropping her bag in the process. Which caused all the things she’d gathered to spill out. “Shoot,” she muttered under her breath, “I’m such a klutz!”
“Whoa, girl, relax. What could you have forgotten about that can cause this much panic? I haven’t seen you this scatter-brained since high school!” Alya astonished, joining Marinette on the ground to help her clean up.
Marinette sighed, putting the final piece in her bag again and looked at Alya. They were both knelt down on the floor and Marinette blew a piece of hair from her face. “I—Well… I’m meeting Adrien.”
Alya gave her a deadpanned look. “With whom you’re married to… what’s the big deal about meeting with your husband?” she asked.
“It’s not the meeting with him part, it’s just—ya know. We’re looking for a house… and… I dunno,” Marinette dug through her bag for her keys, mumbling something about needing a brighter keychain.
Alya looked at the table they had been sitting at to see her friend’s keys lying there. She picked them up and jingled them in front of Marinette’s distracted face. “Here,” she said, hearing Marinette utter out a “Thank you.” Alya crossed her arms and stared curiously at her friend. “What’s the big deal? You’re looking for a house. Something every married couple does… Haven’t you dreamed about this for like, your whole life, or something?” Alya asked.
Marinette shrugged and looked away from her friend, “Well, I mean, yeah. But, like, it’s still a little soon, isn’t it?”
Alya furrowed her brows, “You’ve been married for 3 months. So no, it’s not ‘too soon.’ Getting a house is good. You’ve been crashing in his mouse-sized apartment, which, if I do recall, doesn’t allow for a roommate.”
Marinette bit her fingers, “Yeah, we’ve been ignoring the calls about that…”
“What’s the real issue here?” Alya asked, reaching out for Marinette’s shoulder, “Are you alright?”
Marinette slid from her grasp, looking worriedly at her phone. “Y-you’re probably right! I’m just crazy. This is Adrien,” she said as she lifted her phone, “Gotta take it!”
Alya watched her friend go with a wild expression, “Oh…kay… see ya later, then?”
Marinette pushed the coffee shop door open with her shoulder, holding her phone in one hand and her drink in the other. “Hey, hon,” she said, “Yeah, I’m on my way. No, I didn’t forget, I’m just running a bit late. Yeah, bad traffic. Uh huh. Okay. Yup, see you in a few. I love you too. Bye.” She hung up and stuffed her phone in her purse, grabbing her keys and hopping into her car.
“Alya’s right,” she told herself, “This is good.”
“Okay, on to house number three!” Adrien said enthusiastically, buckling up his seat-belt. “That last one was cool, though, huh? What did you think, Mari? You were pretty quiet in there…” He looked over at his wife to see her staring numbly out the window. “Marinette?”
She blinked and turned to him, looking dazed, “I’m sorry, I was zoned out. What?” She asked.
Adrien frowned, “I asked if you were okay,” he said, reaching out to touch her forehead. “Are you sick? Do you have a fever? Maybe we should go home…”
“Oh no, I’m not sick,” Marinette brushed him off. “Tired is all.”
“You sure?” he asked.
“Positive,” she smiled at him.
“Alright. So, what’d you think of the house?” he asked.
“It was okay,” she said. “It’s expensive, though.”
Adrien shrugged, “Well, money’s not an issue, so don’t pay attention to the price tag, okay? We’ll get whatever we need and whatever works.”
Marinette looked at her husband with a clumsy smile, “The money you got from your father is suppose to be for retirement, isn’t it? That was your plan, right?”
Adrien looked at her with a gentle smile before looking back at the road, “Plans can change.”
Anxiety squeezed Marinette’s chest, “You should save it.”
“Mari, don’t worry. Even if we went all in and bought the whole house now, I’d still have plenty left over. Besides, I’m gonna put what we don’t spend in a retirement plan.” He reached out to touch her knee gently, “Your worried, and it isn’t about the money…”
“I’m not worried, it’s just an expensive house—“
“Marinette, what’s wrong?” he came to a stop at a street light.
“Nothing,” she said, crossing her arms stubbornly.
“Come on, Mari, what’s eating at you?” He pushed.
She nodded towards the windshield of the car, “The light’s green.”
He huffed, “I’m not going until you tell me what’s wrong.”
“Adrien you can’t—there’s people behind us,” she turned around in her seat to see a frustrated wave from the car behind them followed by a honk. “Adrien, seriously! Go!”
“Not until you tell me what’s wrong. Normally I wouldn’t push because I don’t need to know sometimes, but this is clearly about us, and that I should know. So what’s wrong?” He pushed the car into park to prove his point.
“Adrien, we don’t have time—“
“Are you having regrets?” he blurted out, his voice calm. Marinette knew this voice, but she’d never personally experienced it. It was his business voice. The voice he used at professional parties, or conversations with co-workers. It was his father’s voice.
“…Regrets?” She repeated numbly, looking him in the eye. The angry honks and yells began to fade out.
He nodded, “Yeah, regrets. About us,” his eyes and face stoic; he was like a wall. But Marinette could see clearly behind it. He was hurt.
“N-no! No, of course not! I could never regret this,” she gestured between them. “It’s just…”
“Will you?” she ask carefully. Looking away from him.
“Will I what?” He asked, tilting his head. His once calm voice became lathered in frustrated confusion. A car swerved around them, giving them a pleasant curse and honk as he passed, followed by more cars.
“Will you regret this?” she asked. He didn’t respond. “Maybe not now, and maybe not next year or the year after that, but… maybe in ten years. When I’m older, and less exciting. Maybe you’ll look back at it all and realize that it was when you decided to marry me that things started to go wrong. That, in ten years you’ll regret loving me and how you bought a fancy house and used up your money,” she hadn’t noticed until now, but she was crying. She could tell because a tear had fallen onto her hand. “After all, you said it yourself! Plans change, and I don’t want you to regret this—“
She felt large hands envelop her own small ones. She didn’t dare look up to see the man who was holding them though. She couldn’t.
“Hey,” he said gently, leaning over to kiss her wet cheek. “I could never regret this,” he said, but she looked unconvinced, offering him a lazy shrug and a mumbled, “Maybe.”
“I love you,” he said, baffled. She didn’t move. He huffed, thinking of what to say. “Now, if I remember correctly,” he began, “I had a crush on you first,” he said.
“You had a crush on Ladybug, not Marinette,” she pointed out.
“And you had a crush on a model, not Chat Noir,” he countered. “I agree, things can change. We changed, but it was for the better, right?”
“For better or worse,” he repeated their wedding vows. “Now, I take that seriously. Even if there comes a ‘worse,’ I’ll never regret it. Because I love you. We chose each other.” He gently pulled her chin to look her in the eyes. “The only thing I could ever regret would be not marrying you. To not share a life with you. To have kids and grow old with you.”
She blinked and smiled at him, “Kids?” she asked.
“Kids,” he nodded, glad she was smiling. “I’m serious, Mari. About you. About this.”
She leaned in to kiss him. Soft and sweet, short and simple. “Thank you,” she mumbled.
He kissed her nose and leaned back. “But,” he said, putting their car back in drive and looking to see the light had turned red again. “If Nino confesses his love to me, I may just run into the sunset with him,” he said, acting serious.
“Oh my gosh,” Marinette shoved him with a laugh, “You’re a dork.”
Levi scrubs the last of the dirt off the coffee table. “Finally.” That’s the last time he trusts Isabel to bring a ‘mystery box’ into the apartment.
He hears a crash in the kitchen, followed by a squeak of “Oops!” Isabel is a freaking tornado with legs. He sighs as he goes to investigate what she’s mussed up now.
“I was never-”
“I know,” Isabel interrupts. “You were never this crazy when you were 5!” she mimics with R’s that sound suspiciously like W’s.
Levi suppresses a grin at her sass. He shoos her off while he rights the stool she managed to topple over.
The doorbell rings and Isabel rounds the corner at top speed. “I’ll get it!”
“No, no, no!” Levi scoops her up. “Remember what we talked about? You’re going to watch a movie while Eren and I study.”
Isabel nods wisely. “‘Cause it took you a whole year just to invite him over.”
Sure, tell the kid a million times not to jump on the furniture with muddy shoes and it’s in one ear and out the other. Mention your undying crush on a certain football player while you think she’s napping, however, and she remembers every single word you say about him. Unless, of course, Hange told her. Quite frankly he wouldn’t put it past them.
Levi takes a deep breath. “Don’t repeat that again,” he says. “Ever.”
Eren knocks on their door. Levi sets Isabel down. “You remember how to set up Netflix?”
“Duh,” Isabel says proudly before marching towards the living room.
Levi laughs. He never imagined himself as the guardian of such a spunky kid at the age of 19, but she makes him a little more grateful for it every day. Even if she does like to pour an entire bottle of bubble bath in the tub and turn the water on full blast. He shudders.
He makes one last stop at the mirror in the hallway to fix his hair before he opens the door. He has to pause a second, the same as always, and just admire Eren’s radiant smile before he can say hello.
“Levi!” Eren says. “How’s it- oh, who’s this little angel?” he asks, peeking around Levi.
Angel. Levi almost snorts.
“I’m Izzy!” Isabel says confidently. “And I’m-”
“Supposed to be watching a movie,” Levi finishes for her, turning around to fix her with a stern look.
Isabel sticks her tongue out at him.
“Izzy, huh?” Eren smiles another brilliant, blinding, beautiful smile. “That’s a cool name.”
Isabel nods. “And you’re Eren.”
Eren tilts his head at her and Levi’s stomach drops a little. “How did you know that?” Eren asks.
“Green eyes. Nice hair. Pretty face.” Isabel ticks each point off on her fingers. “You gotta be Eren.”
“Izzy!” Levi whispers.
Eren raises his brows at Levi’s back.
Levi’s face burns. He refuses to turn around; half because he can’t look at Eren right now, half because he’s having a stare down with a pint-sized hurricane that possesses just as much bravado as he does.
Eren pipes up against the silence that has fallen over the apartment. “Pretty face, huh?”
And like a switch, Isabel goes from scowling to grinning. “Uh huh. Levi talks about you lots. Like, all the time.”
“S’kinda annoying. But he really, really likes-” Levi clamps a hand over her mouth.
“She’s had a little too much sugar,” he explains apologetically. He shoots Isabel a look. “I’ll make sure she doesn’t get anymore for a while.”
Isabel glares at Levi. A hint of mischief lights up her eyes, and before Levi can work out what she’s up to- “Ew!” - she licks his hand.
Levi grumbles his way to the bathroom, turning the water on as hot as he can handle it.
Eren shifts under Isabel’s intense stare. She’s sizing him up, lips set in a firm line and eyes narrowed. She nods, satisfied with whatever conclusion she’s come to and takes Eren by the hand. “C’mon. I’ll paint your nails.”
Eren laughs, and allows her to lead him into the living room. She chatters away a mile a minute. He tries his best to keep up, and nods encouragingly when she finds the perfect nail polish to match his black shirt: the brightest blue in her collection.
He looks around at the pictures on the walls, tempted to ask who they all are, but Isabel says something that catches his attention.
“What was that, Izzy?”
“You’re nice,” she repeats. “That’s why Uncle Levi likes you so much.” She brushes another coat on his index nail. Half of it ends up on his skin. “You like him too, don’t you?” She looks up at Eren and smiles. “I can tell.”
Levi watches them from the archway, waiting eagerly for an answer. Eren simply smiles at Isabel, and when she resumes her work on his fingernails, he gives a small nod.
Isabel is a freaking tornado with legs, and Levi loves her more than anything in the world. Though, watching Eren ruffle her hair with his clean hand, he’s becoming a close second.
can i request a ten, taeyong, and haechan neighbour au?? hehe i really love your writing a lot < 3
ten’s birthday is next week, so here’s a kind of early gift to all you ten stans!! and of course, taeyong and haechan stans~（´・｀ ）♡ find mark + jaehyun (here)
he throws parties on the weekends and practices guitar on the weekdays while also getting REALLY R E A L L Y into nba 2k17,,,,,,
especially if johnny comes over like the two of them cannot shuttup and neighbors always have to go over and be like “quiet down” and johnny apologizes while ten just sneers and is like “YEAH JOHNNY WHY ARE YOU SO LOUD” and johnny is like “i swear once this door is closed-”
but he’s FUN,,,,,like there is not denying that he’s an entertaining, amusing, and great person like why else would his apartment be basically filled to the brim with people who he probably doesn’t even know all that well
yeah the snacks,,,,,but also like?? ten makes great jokes, he’s good at making everyone feel comfortable, and his dancing: a+
he’s the whole package,,,,,,,,,even though his place is a mess monday morning and he has to practically beg taeyong and jaehyun to come over and help him clean
and he once tried to ask hansol and hansol was like “you brought this on yourself lolololol” and the proceeded to hang up on him whenever ten tried to call him back (real friends are like this tbh)
speaking of which ten has ,,,,, like no idea how to keep his things organized,,,,,,,,because he has so much stuff like every time he leaves his house he’s wearing a brand new outfit
and everyone is like bro you spend way too much money on clothes,,,,,why do you need so much and ten is like Firstly: it’s fashion you Wouldn’t Get It,,,,,,,,secondly someone stole some of my pants from my last party ok leave it alone
but his apartment itself is pretty cool, like somehow he got mark to ask renjun to come over and paint on his wall and it turned out really cool and ten’s the type to have fancy stuff for no reason like did you really need to buy a lamp that looks like a chandelier and ten is like yeah i did bye
cute lil secret: he keeps letters from his parents back in thailand in a shoebox in his locked closet so it’s safe because it’s the one thing he refuses to lose,,,,,,,,,,,
but you know ten if not because you have to listen to the music he blasts at each of his parties and him yell at his friends when they play games but also,,,,,,,,,on multiple occasions
ten has come to you for help
one of the most common is he always ends up needing a place to crash for the night because someone else fell asleep in his bed,,,,,,and his couch,,,,,,,,and on his floor. then there was the time he woke up with his head in a bowl of uneaten ramen and the noodles had gotten stuck in his ear piercings and you had to get them out while ten cried about how gross that was,,,,,and of course the most famous: ten gets tipsy and Emotional and you,,,,,,,well
you listen to him
mind you in the morning when he’s all better ten is just like “hEY thanks for letting me cry and ,,,,,,,,, stuff let’s never talk about this again!!!!”
and you feel bad because ,,,,,,,lmao you’re just his neighbor who also knows his deepest insecurities and fears and it’s like????? you never have the heart to get mad at him for knocking on your door at 2 am
but also,,,,,,you like then ten that is open with his feelings. the ten that cuddles into your arm face first and mumbles that you’re so sweet to him, so kind
but when ten,,,,,,is being his loud, fun self he’s not exactly that person
until you end up being the one in need of help,,,,,knocking on ten’s door at some odd hour and he opens it, shocked to see you and you’re like
“where is your alcohol stash,,,,,,,,give it it to me” and ten slows you down by catching you around the waist and he’s like “are you o-?” and you’re like NOPE IM NOT ,,,,,,give me,,,,,,,,,the,,,,,,,,drinks
but ten isn’t letting you go and he’s like “sit down, tell me whats up” and you grumble that it doesn’t matter, trying to hide behind your hair a bit so he can’t see that you had been crying
but ten just shakes his head and he’s like “c’mon,,,,,i know you listen to me when i come sobbing over to you,,,,,,tell me what it is”
and you’re like “ten,,,,,,,,,,,do you even see me as a friend? or am i just the closest person near you when you have to complain?”
and it’s quiet and ten kind of looks at you, but then he gently pokes the center of your forehead and he’s like “of course you’re my friend,,,,,,to be honest,,,,,,,ive always thought of you as more than that. to me,,,,like i want,,,,,,,want you to be more than a friend but,,,,,,,i know you don’t feel that way so i just wanted to be close to you,,,,,,,,”
and for the first time you’re hearing ten stutter over his words (when he’s not drunk) and you’re like “wait wait wait stop”
and you put your finger to his lips and he’s like ??? and you’re like
“you want me to be more than your friend?” and ten is like ,,,,,,,, “how,,,,,,,,,well,,,,,,let me say it like this it’s hard not to fall for the person who pulled ramen out of my earrings for me.”
and you’re blinking a bit, completely forgetting the thing that made you upset because wait. is ten confessing??????
and you’re like “so you like me?” and he’s like “yes, i like you. i thought bothering you all the time made that obvious”
and you’re like aljfkddkskre it didnt,,,,,,and ten is like “huh, did you also not hear when johnny screamed ‘GO CONFESS TO THE PERSON NEXT DOOR THAT YOU’RE IN LOVE WITH THEM YOU IDIOT’???”

taeyong loves cute stationary, and cute mugs, and owns an apron with little kitten embroidered on the side and those hanging plants that he decorated his bedroom with and idk he’s got like,,,,,,a clock that looks like a sunflower

the type to have labels on all his cupboards and shelves and you open his refrigerator and everything is labeled it’s like,,,,,,how does he have the damn nerve to do this
also: uses coasters for his drink because he gets anxious about drinks spilling onto his rug
but yeah other than that,,,,he’s kinda awkward around most people,,,,but he does his best to smile and come off sweet

and you knock on his door again and he’s like “oh!!! do you need to borrow my mo-” and you’re like “here!!!!!! it’s a small gift,,,,,,but i thought you might like it,,,,,,,,,,,,,”

“do you,,,,,,,,,,,,wanna come inside,,,,,,,,,i don’t usually let people over but,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,”
and you’re like huh oh sure!!! and ok his house looks like a palace there isn’t any dirt anywhere
and when he makes you a cup of tea there’s like little cute bears on the mug and you’re looking at the cup and at taeyong’s beautiful face and you
can’t help but giggle and he’s going red again like,,,,,,,am i funny?? are you laughing at me??
and you’re like “no no no you’re just so,,,,,,,,,,much cuter than i expected!!”
and taeyong damn near falls over,,,,,,,you called him CUTE?!?!?! and you’re like “i didn’t think someone so chic would be into little cute animals” and taeyong is like im not,,,,,,chic,,,,,,,,plus animals are so,,,,,adorable right
and you’re like omg taeyong you i should have gotten you a big stuffed bear and he’s like aGHDSd no,,,,,,i love what you got me don’t worry about it
and he’s so cute getting nervous and staring at his lap,,,,,,,you can’t help but wanna lean over and like kiss his face but you don’t
even though tbh taeyong is like,,,,,,,,,i wouldn’t mind being kissed by them,,,,,,,,like in his head LOL
thought he was old enough to be totally fine living alone. and he is,,,,,,,except he goes over to everyones house for his meals and got mark’s netflix password so he didn’t have to pay for it himself
how many times has yuta lent him his nintendo ds? like 32424234
jaehyun is convinced haechan took his ricecooker,,,,,,,,,but he has no way to prove it except that haechan was like “nooo hyung i got this at the mall on sale i promise!!!!” and jaehyun is like “then where did mine disappear to?” and haechan is like thats your problem,,,,so,,,,,,
but it’s ok because everyone adores him because if he wants something all he has to do is be a cute kid and bam! he gets it
and although he’s a little trickster, and sometimes his hyungs fall into his traps. he shows that he cares for them too
and especially for his friends that are younger, like when chenle and jisung come over to hangout haechan will literally be like “if you stay past 10. you have to sleepover. im not letting you go out in the dark.”
and he knows how taeyong hates messes so he brought coasters just for him and he always has snacks that he knows mark likes
like YES he can be a bit of ,,,,,,,,,,, a devil but he’s a sweetheart too
his apartment isn’t full of too many toys or anything he actually has a pretty mature taste
and if anything he just really likes having a space for him to write and think clearly because to me, haechan is really creative and so he’d like a big desk with post-its and books full of ideas,,,,he just comes off that way
but he’d have some like cute joke stuff like a really bad photo of johnny framed and on his bookshelf or something LOL
also idk why,,,,,,but haechan seems like he’d have a dog,,,,,like a corgi,,,,,or a beagle,,,,,,,,,
anyway you’re really close with haechan because you love love love teasing doyoung and mark and jaehyun
you guys kind of bonded over pulling harmless pranks together
and so for ten’s upcoming birthday you and him decided to make cookies but to fill some up with hot sauce or wasabi just to see ten run around the room arms flailing
but as you know,,,,,,doing anything with haechan can’t be a calm and clean process
halfway through you try to feed him some vanilla extract saying it’s melted white chocolate and he tries to get some icing on the side of your face
but it’s all fun and games like,,,,,,,you love being in each others company because you guys never get sick of being silly
until someone (probably haechan) ends up spilling some of the eggs on the floor and neither of you notice
until you slip on your way to the oven and go tumbling backwards
and you’re like haechan!!!!!! look out!!!!!
but he’s like throwing down the flour he’s holding to outstretch his arms and catch you
but it just ends up with both of you on the floor, covered in the eggs and sugar and flour
and you’re leaning against haechan whose hit his arm on the counter coming down
and you’re like “are you ok????” and haechan is like “no i think im bleeding”
and he puts his hand up and you see some red and you’re like HAECHAN oh my god im so sO SOrry let me get a bandage omg do you not have any here let me rip some off this tissue -
and then out of nowhere he starts to laugh and you’re like ??????? and he’s like “it’s just some red icing, im fine!!!”
and you sit there on the floor, and frown and you’re like “you scared me!!!!! i thought you were hurt,,,,if i had hurt you i don’t know what i-”
and haechan can see the sadness in your eyes and automatically his smile falls
and he’s like “im sorry, it was a dumb joke why are you so worried about me anyway, you know im indestructible!”
and you know he’s playing around but you still take his wrist and turn his arm to make sure he isn’t hiding that he might be really hurt
and you’re like “im glad you’re ok,,,,,,,,,,,,”
and haechan looks at you, still holding his arm and he’s like
“wait,,,,,,,,,,,,,did you get all worried about me like that because maybe,,,,,,,”
and you look up wide eyes and you’re like “UH”
and haechan is like snapping his fingers like “YOU LIKE ME?”
and you’re ike UHHHHHH WHAT SHUT UP NO WAY
but haechan is like mimicking your voice and he’s like “you scared me!!!” but then he reaches out and pulls you toward him into a hug
and he’s like “seriously, you could have just told me because i like you too!!!!!!”
and you’re like haECHAN don’t be playing some kind of joke on me-
and he’s like “this isn’t a joke, i promise, for real this time.”
and you can’t help but blush and be like “we’re covered in eggs let’s not hug-” but haechan just pushes you closer because like c’mon he totally would
“Dean, I think the AC broke,” you said, hopping up the steps to the garage where he washed Baby. “It’s a thousand degrees in there.”
“I know. Sam ran out a few minutes ago to grab the replacement part,” said Dean, bending down to pick up the hose. “Want me to help?”
“What are you-Dean, that’s freezing!” you shouted as he turned the water on you.
“You still look pretty hot to me,” he said, lowering the nozzle as you looked down at your soaking wet body. “Maybe I should do it again.”
“You’re lucky that actually cooled me off,” you said, wringing the water out of your hair. “You on the other hand are all sweaty from working hard. I think we should fix that.”
“Do your worst,” he said raising the hose again.
“Oh, she did,” said Sam, sneaking up behind him and dumping his bucket of water on him.
“I knew you’d never volunteer to fix that thing unless you were up to something!” said Dean, trying to spray Sam but losing the hose from his grip, Sam sliding it over to you as they wrestled. You picked it up and turned it towards them.
“Now, who thinks it’s Sammy’s turn to get wet?” you asked, watching him groan as he tried to scramble out of there before Dean got a good hold on him.
“There’s a couple water guns behind the tool bench,” said Dean, watching your smile spread.
“Five minute truce and then we can really cool off.”
Synopsis: Damian and Jon had gotten the hang of working together as the Super Sons. Just as Damian thought that he could make this team-up work, he runs into an unexpected snag: Jon has a crush on him.
Alya and Nino are very loyal friends. Even when they are on a trip, they are always ready to drop anything for a phone call from their best friends. Ao3 link.
I finally wrote the story from this post. It is a series of short, silly scenes. Alya and Nino are secret badasses but they always put their friends first.
“Hey, bro, what’s up?” Nino’s voice came from the cell phone.
“I’m sooo bored!” Adrien moaned, falling back against his bed. He had been so lonely ever since he graduated lycee six months ago. He wanted to go straight to University but he struck a deal with his dad. If he modeled full time for two years, he could study whatever he wanted. He had been managing it until Nino had left two weeks ago for a two month trip around Europe with Alya. He was happy for his friend but he missed him. Life was so boring without him.
Nino laughed. “Sorry bro. It must be so boring being a supermodel.”
“It really isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.” Adrien laughed. “I’m surprised you have time to talk to me. When is Alya going to drag you off somewhere?”
“Don’t worry.” He paused for a moment. “She’s busy.”
Adrien laughed. “What’s she doing?”
“Just making a deal with the mob. I’m keeping watch.” Nino said casually.
*deep breath* I’m quite nervous about this, but here it goes.
I decided to officially come out as two things that I’ve actually been ashamed of for the longest of time. I’m doing this because I’m finally getting to that point where I can’t just cope with it or accept it, but I’m actually starting to take pride in being who I am (let’s hope it stays that way!). I also hope that this might reach and maybe in a small way help someone like me who isn’t quite there yet.
First of all: I’m intersex. Intersex is a broad term that implies a person is born physically diverting from the gender binary (it is often confused with transgender, since both often struggle with gender-identity). I’m also however, cisgender. Which -yes-, is possible. I’ve always identified as female and was identified as such at birth. My chromosomes however are XY… I’ll try to explain:
Summary: You were in a special task unit with Sam during your time in the military. What he never knew was that you had the ability to see into the near future. Now that you’ve revealed your secret to him, things become more complicated than you would have liked.
Warnings: Mention of death, scars.
Words: 2 996
A/N: This is part 1 of this little story and oh boy is part 2 good, mm hmm… If you would like a part 2 of 1769, please tell me!
She looked down at her body which was stripped down to black briefs and a sports bra, electrodes dotting her revealed skin. Bruce was behind her and placed more electrodes to her back whilst continuously looking over to her vitals displayed on a projected screen.
“So, you and Sam have known each other for how long?” He asked upon recalling the brief introduction of her he had gotten earlier.
“Five years.” She stated, following Bruce with her eyes as he walked around her. Tony stood further away and observed in silence, concentrated, interested.
“And you never told him about… This?” It was in Bruce’s nature to be hesitant. He glanced back to the girl who had remained a flawless posture since the second she entered the Tower. It was almost humorously obvious how she had military background.
“It’s not exactly something you just tell people.” She commented, which was a fair point. When Bruce was approached by Sam, which was odd enough alone, it came as a bit of a surprise when Sam explained he had a friend from the military who had just revealed to him that she was a bit more than what met the eye.
“I guess that’s true.” He pursed his lips into an awkward smile, continuing to prepare for the tests she had agreed to take part in.
When she was in the military, she had been one of the best soldiers on the field in history of her division. It didn’t take long until she was picked out of the common men and put in a group of superiors where divisions merged, the best of the best coming together to form a team of elites. She was one of them, and her supreme skill was unexplainable. Others within the squad had gone through extreme training, had advanced gear, but she was just a girl who never made mistakes.
“No, I haven’t.” She turned towards Tony who had his eyes narrowed and glued to hers. Bruce looked between them, lost.
“What?” He looked away from her vitals and lowered the portable, glass, screen in his hand.
“Tony was just about to ask me if I’ve had this ability my entire life, and the answer is no.” She said as if it would make things any clearer. “It first began after I nearly died during a rescue mission in Afghanistan, 7 years ago. We were a group of six men, rescuing two agents under cover who had been taken hostage. We were in unknown territory, walking in a line formation, when the man in the front steps on an unactivated missile. All of them die, except me… I wake up in a small village where the locals had taken care of me as well as they could…”
“That’s where the scars are from?” Tony questioned, looking down at the dozens of scars which mapped her body, none of them being longer than a finger yet they looked brutal nonetheless.
She nodded. “Let’s just say they didn’t have any doctor degree, but they did what they could, and I have my life because of that.” She too looked down at the crooked scars which clearly hadn’t been stitched up by someone with skill.
“So it began after that?” Bruce was amazed by the story and listened to every word. She stood still for a moment, her focus in her own mind as she knew Steve and Sam would enter soon.
“Yes. After I was able to walk again and could contact my superiors, I returned to base and was on leave for a month before returning again. That’s when they began to notice how good I was, of course. After another month I joined the special task force.” She looked up a second before Sam and Steve opened the door to Bruce’s lab. Sam met her eyes for a split second but then broke contact. Ever since she told him about what she could do, he had given her the cold shoulder. Despite that, he had still talked to Bruce and his other friends so that she could receive the help and support she needed and to put her abilities to good use.
“Hi.” She said, hoping Sam would answer. Instead he nodded, still not marking eye contact and remaining silent.
“Eh… Are you ready?” Bruce tried to break the tension. “We’re all set up.”
She nodded again. “What do you want me to do?”
“Just do your thing, continuously, preferably.” He stumbled on his own tongue-twister like sentence before shaking his head clear, turning to look at her vitals measured by the electrodes on her body. Tony took a few steps closer and instead of looking at the numbers on the screen, he watched as her eyes were filled with strange, moving lights and as her look became empty, as if she no longer was watching the world around her, which could be true for all he knew.
“Open the door for Peter.” She stated, subtly glowing eyes still staring blankly before her. “He has his hands full.”
Steve was the only one who reacted and turned around, opening the glass door when Peter suddenly appeared in the hallway outside, carrying two big boxes of files which Tony had requested earlier.
“Oh, thanks Steve- woah…” Peter turned from Steve to Y/N, seeing her scarred body unique eyes which he had not expected her to have when seeing her pass him by that morning. He put the boxes down and joined the others in observing few young woman. He didn’t know if it was rude to stare at her scars, but looking her in the eye at that moment felt equally as rude.
“This is… Unbelievable.” Bruce stated after a while of watching the tablet in his hand. “Her brain activity has gone far beyond what should be humanly possible.”
“What is she doing?” Peter was completely lost. He had understood there was something big going on when Y/N came into the tower and everyone around seemed to put their focus on her. He didn’t know if he was authorized for the information, but seeing as Steve had literally opened the door for him into the room where she stood with her eerie scars, he could only assume that he was allowed to know what was going on.
“Seeing the future.” She said like it was the most normal thing in the world. Peter looked between Steve and Tony before Bruce and Sam.
“What?” He questioned, rolling his lips in between his teeth and raising his eyebrows.
“Y/N has the ability to see the near future.” Tony explained briefly before she decided to explain more clearly herself.
“It doesn’t go very far. About thirty minutes ahead has been my record, and I can only see the future that’s around me, but it helps out a lot more than one might think… Like how I know those boxes are going to fall in three seconds.”
Peter spun his head around and grabbed the boxes just as they began tilting over the edge of the counter he had put them on. He remained balancing them on the edge, lips parted. Not a single word came to mind when he felt as if he should say something. He was truly speechless.
“Or that Tony will be notified that a certain Mr. Lang has arrived right after I say this-”
“Sir? Mr. Lang has just arrived. Should I tell him to come up?” Friday’s voice came through the speaker above them in the ceiling. Everyone turned to look towards it with amazement.
“Yes.” Tony said, amazed by how she knew what she did but not liking the uneasy feeling it caused him.
“That’s sick!” Peter let out a sharp breath which could almost be taken for a laugh. “I mean, how cool is it that you can see the future?”
She was silent for a few moments before a subtle smile crept up on her face. “Pretty cool.” She agreed.
“Okay, that’s alright. You can pause.” Bruce let her know and her eyes gradually seemed to turn back to reality. She looked around her and blinked a few times. Bruce, still hesitant, hopened and closed his mouth before being able to get the words out. “What does it look like? When you see the future?”
She stayed quiet for a moment, thinking of a good way to describe the unexplainable phenomenon that was her powers. “It’s kind of like I’m watching a movie at ten times the speed but I still manage to capture every scene, every detail. I both see and hear “the movie” whilst I also see and hear the present… I feel like I’m not making a lot of sense, but I can’t really put it into words.“
“Seeing as I have no way of telling how this is physically possible, I’m not gonna complain about you having to explain it.” Bruce admitted, looking down on the tablet for a few moments and tapping a few buttons. He then slid his finger from it towards her vitals. Two pictures took place on the wide screen from the MRI the electrodes across her forehead had taken. “This one is before you started and this one is after.”
He pointed towards both pictures. The first one was just a picture of her brain, a faint glow to it but nothing else. The second one was lit up like a damn star, glowing vividly and surprising even herself as she had no clue her brain activity was altered when she looked into the future.
“Is that her brain activity?” Steve, who wasn’t very cunning about everything science, asked to make sure and got a nod from Banner in response.
Sam was still silently watching her. All those missions they had been on, all those people that had died, she had seen them. She could have saved those people but she hadn’t. Members of their squad had died on the field, and Y/N had been right beside them. How could she not have done something about that? How could she have let those people die?
He was done. Sam turned around and walked through the room. She had already seen that he was about to and had begun tearing off the electrode-stickers off of her. “Sam?” She called out as he exited the room. “Sam wait!”
She snatched her shirt from a nearby table but didn’t have the time for her pants. She pulled the shirt on whilst jogging after him. She knew they would fight, knew what he would tell her, and simply braced herself for the inevitable.
“Sam, please…” She begged a final time before he stopped, standing in the middle of the hallway and breathing heavily from anger.
“You let them die!” He called out, turning around to face her. “Good men- Our men! They died a few feet away from you and you didn’t do jack-shit…”
“I saved them more times than you’ll ever realize but I couldn’t save all of you at once, continuously for all of our missions. How would it look if I pushed them out of every bullet? People would suspect something.”
“They’d be alive!” He raised his voice even further. Bruce, Tony, Steve and Peter tried to ignore the fight but could hear every word they exchanged. Slowly, they began to exit the lab to the hallway and kept distance from the two as they continued to argue. “I would still have my friends by my side!”
“And if I would have had these powers a little earlier, my friends would also be alive!” Her face grew red in rage. “If you cared for them so much you should have been on the ground with us to save them yourself…”
Sam tightened his fist and aimed for her face, but of course she dodged his hit. He tried again but she avoided that one too, and the next one, and the next and the one after that. Sam began to grow tired and his heart thumped loudly in his chest, his hands lowering for a moment.
“Stop, Sam.” She said as he tightened his fists again. “You know this isn’t going to end well.”
He felt defeated. His mind was in torment. He didn’t know what to think. Should he hate Y/N for wanting her powers to stay hidden and not saving his friends once more? Should he be thankful that she saved their friends as many times as she did and after all years decided to tell him the truth, despite that she had no obligation to? He didn’t know. No matter how many times the thoughts ran through his head, he didn’t know what to feel.
“Sam?” It was Steve, worryingly watching from down the hallway where he had just seen Sam try to beat Y/N to the floor and Y/N unbelievably dodging every punch. “Let’s juts all calm down.”
Sam felt like an idiot beyond compare but valued his dignity too much to apologize to Y/N at the time. Instead, he straightened up and continued to walk towards the elevator like his plan had been when first leaving Bruce’s lab.
Everyone let him this time. It would be for the better.
“I’m sorry about that.” She turned around as the elevator doors closed behind Sam. “Our past should not be a concern of yours, but it’s difficult to keep them apart sometimes…”
She came back from a trip to Afghanistan only two weeks before she talked to Sam. She hadn’t been there on a mission, hadn’t gone there for anything military. She went there to search for answers. She wanted to understand how that explosion in the middle of a dry, grass field had caused her to be able to see the future. She had spoken to the village who had saved her life in hopes that there might be some legend of the place, but there had been nothing. Her journey back to where it all started had been in vain.
As she was there, in the dry heat of Afghanistan, she had felt guilty of the lives she could have saved. Her mind was plagued with the repeating concept that they could still be alive. Her entire world circled around those thought for a week straight, day and night. Never had she endured as many nightmares as she did then. It wasn’t until she thought of the possibility to come clean to Sam that her mental torture came to an abrupt end. Like turning off a light switch, the nightmares were gone. She knew that she had to tell him then and sought Sam out as quickly as possible.
He hadn’t been nearly as shocked as she thought he would be when she told him she could see the future, and after meeting a few of his friends, she could see why her abilities was not that abnormal in his new world. He was distant however, since day one of knowing her life secret. He had understood since the second she explained everything that she could then have saved their squad which was extinct apart from the two of them. Yet, he had been mature enough to not let her go but had instead brought her to the Avengers and to the Stark Tower.
He had expected her to refuse. Even in the heat of battle she had preferred to be alone, but she had gladly accepted his invitation to meet Bruce, which then escalated to almost half of the Avengers, which she didn’t find to be that much of a problem. All she wanted was to change her past, but that wasn’t part of her abilities. All she could hope for was that she would be allowed to make better choices as a part of the Avengers, to do good. She wanted nothing else.
“Y/L/N?” Steve tried to gain her attention as she had fallen into her own mind for a moment.
“Y/N.” She corrected, not liking how much being called by her last name reminded her of the military she left a year prior.
“Y/N…” Steve changed it. “I don’t know what you and Sam have gone through or how difficult this is for the both of you, but we could really use someone with your skills.”
She had known he would ask that for ten minutes before he actually did and she had subsequently thought about it. “I want to change, to be better and use my abilities to save lives, but I have to think about this… After all I’ve done, after everything I’ve put Sam through, I don’t know if this place is right for me.”
Steve nodded understandingly. “Of course. Take your time.”
“I’ll take my time.” She huffed, smiling subtly in hopes to bring the mood up as the air in the hallway had become thick enough to cut through.
“There’s a few spare rooms around. You can stay the night if you’d like-” Tony began but noticed how distant Y/N became. “What’s up?”
“Huh? Oh, sorry. I’m emotionally preparing myself for Mr. Lang… He’s rather ecstatic.” She admitted as the elevator door opened behind her, Scott stumbled through the doors and looked up in surprise upon seeing everyone gathered and more so in seeing the new face.
“Hello…” He dragged out. “What’s going on here? We have a new addition to the big, happy family?”
“My name is Y/N. I’m a friend of Sam’s from the military. I can see the future.” She turned back around to Tony. “I’ll take that offer, thank you. I need to sleep on this…”
“Wait what?” Scott exclaimed.
“Sure, I’ll show you to it.” Tony nodded and followed Y/N into the elevator which still was on their floor.
“Hey, what do you mean?” Scott continued but was completely ignored. The elevator doors shut and Scott was left as clueless as ever, glancing back to Steve, Bruce and Peter. “She can see the freaking future?”
Hi! Idk if this idea is too complicated, but what if RFA and Saeran have met MC before in a bar or nightclub, and like, MC's friend is super shy and doesn't know how to approach people, so MC tries to help her finding who she thinks it would be agood suitor for her, but they end up interested in MC? Hope you like this idea, I'm sorry if it's too weird and hard to do, I love your writing!
So complicated and so adorable
Hope you like this! ^^
MC tries to set them up with her friend
Common: Your friend is trying to move on from a break
up after dating someone for a long time, so she’s kinda rusty in this flirting
thing, nobody in the place you took her caught her eye, but you’re pretty sure
you found the perfect person for her. Well, you look so determined, she doesn’t
want to hurt your feelings by telling you she’s not really interested in them.
And… it’s pretty obvious that this person is way more into you, anyway…
was at this club with some colleague actors when he felt a little nudge on his
shoulder when he was at the bar
turned to find you smiling at him sweetly. Oh… a fan, right?
can I help you, lady?” “Me? Oh no… it’s, uhm… my friend over there, she…”
she wants a selfie with me? Maybe an autograph? Tell her not to be shy and come
over!” you look at him, confused.
autograph? Why would she…?” the lights in the club hit his face perfectly, and
you recognize him. “Holy shit! You’re Zen!” he is confused as well, but
slightly amused at your flustered face.
I am.” “Oh my God! I’m such a fan! I loved your last role! You’re so talented!
I… have you ever considered playing a butler or something? I think it would
really suit you!”
haven’t, actually, but… thanks for your suggestion. Maybe one day I can make
you dream come true!” he smiles in satisfaction seeing you blush. “So, how can
I help two adorable ladies like you and your friend?”
oh yeah, my friend, I… I’ll talk to her. Sorry to bother you, Zen… sir. It was
really an honor!” you run out of there.
can’t hold back a smile, what a sweet charming girl… why did you run like that?
He would have liked to talk to you more and what other ideas you have for roles
that suit him.
go to your friend, your cheeks are heated and you feel like floating. “Girl, I
just met Zen! He is so sweet, and nice, and handsome, and dreamy… he is
perfect! He is perfect… for you.”
for you. Get back there and ask for his phone.” “What? No way! He must think
I’m lame and have a thing for butlers. I… I should be conformed on meeting him
just like a fan…”
your friend made sure to tease you on not getting conformed at all after you
Why did he let his college buddies drag him to this frat party? So crowded and
he saw you, and he almost choked as he saw you looking at him. Definitely
choked when you beckoned at him.
went to you like a little puppy. “H-hi…” “Hi! Are you having fun?”
a little…” just now that he is talking to you, that is. “A little? Oh…” you
pout, making his heart flutter.
But it has nothing to do with you! I just… would prefer being home now, playing
some LOLOL, you know…” “Oh, do you play LOLOL? Cool! What server?”
star. Do you play it there too?” “No, but I would like to, I keep telling my
guild buddies to go play there, but nobody wants to go there because of that Hacker God
or something…” “Ah yeah… the Hacker God, he isn’t all that, if you want to know
Do you know him?” “I do, we’re friends, actually. So uhm… tell your friends to
go to the shooting star, maybe I can convince him to join us in some missions,
he is a good player, and… I’m pretty good too.” He blushes, and you giggle.
sure. I’ll let my friend know, the… oh, my friend, yeah! Hey, uhm… my friend over
there thinks you’re really cute, you know?” oh…? Good to know, but… what do you
think of him? “So, uhm… I’ll bring her here so you two can get to know each
so you’re not interested in him, you were just trying to hook your friend up…
well, he’s pretty sure she must be nice, since she’s your friend, but… she
there’s no way he can talk to your friend without bringing you up to the
conversation, that would be really rude, right? So he just sneaks out before
you realize he’s gone.
look around, trying to find him. “Girl, I swear I met a really sweet, cute guy,
and he plays LOLOL in the shooting star server and… his hair looks really cool.
He would be perfect! For you…”
What a shame, huh? Did you at least catch his name?” “No. No, I didn’t…” you
say, legitimately disappointed.
you learned so much more than his name a few weeks later when you saw that
selfie of his in the chat room…
was trying to relax at this cafe, though she was pretty sure Jumin would call
any minute assigning some absurd task.
took her eyes out of her phone to turn at this person tapping her shoulder, oh…
you were smiling, were you going to try selling something to her?
I help you?” “Uhm, yes, maybe you can! So, answer me this, please: how do you
deal with a break up?”
you… try to move on? I suppose?” “Exactly! You move on, meeting new people,
right? I knew I was talking to the right person!” you smile and she can’t help
but scoffing. “Right person? I… I’m just assuming something my colleagues from
work talk about it, I wouldn’t really know since… it’s been a while I don’t
why is that?” “Work. I guess maybe you can say I’m dating a cat named Elizabeth
the 3rd since she’s always at my place and taking over my life.”
“Exactly, yikes…so I’m not sure if I can really help you here, lady.”
actually, maybe you can, since my friend’s ex is kinda like Elizabeth the 3rd.”
“Yikes!” you two chuckle.
uhm… I think you and my friend could get
along really well, helping each other and all, she…” “She? I… I don’t really…”
she gets really flustered when she looks at your curious eyes. “I’m not… you
know, with women, and…”
OH! I’m so sorry, lady! I have no idea why I just assumed you were… I… I’m
really sorry! I… should get going now. I’m so sorry to bother you.” You run out
of there in embarrassment.
feels like running after you to tell you it’s fine, but her phone rings, it’s
from work, so she has to leave.
go to your friend, looking really flustered and… sad. “I… I just met a really
nice girl, but she’s not into girls…” “It’s fine, we can talk more about that,
if you want.”
had no idea what your friend wanted to talk about, until you realized the girl
in the chat room was the same from that cafe, and how frustrating it was that
she doesn’t date girls… or does she?
was at this bar having some wine with a few acquaintances.
was all really boring, but something caught his attention, the waitress handed
a glass of wine with a little note in a napkin.
“Why so bored?” he looked around to find
the sender, when he spotted you at the balcony, looking straight at him.
he would just ignore it, but you picked just the right wine for him, and… there
was something really alluring about that note.
the waitress handed you a martini with a napkin. “Business meetings, as you can imagine.”
glass of wine, another napkin. “I can’t.
Tell me more about it.” Another martini, another note. “I’m afraid you’ll get bored as well.”
“So ditch this and go have some
fun.” “What do
“Well, my friend sitting on the
second bench to your right is single. Can I send a drink to her in your name?” oh… so this wasn’t about you, huh?
“No need to. I’ll send my regards to
her myself.” He
wondered if this sounded rude, he was relieved when he spotted you smiling and
giving him the thumbs up.
it was time to follow your idea and “ditch” this, but he couldn’t follow your
suggestion. He couldn’t just approach your friend so out of the blue, he didn’t
even exchange napkins messages with her…
did he send you a drink?” you asked her when you went to her. “Two, actually.”
You couldn’t hold a little smirk when you saw the note he wrote for her. “You can never get bored with a friend like
yours. Hope you ladies have fun with this.”
you showed up at his penthouse a few weeks later, you knew asking your friend
to give you that napkin was a good idea.
was on an undercover mission, working as a bartender in this party some guys
from the mafia would definitely show up.
spotted you waiting to be serviced. “Can I get you anything?” “You don’t have
Dr.Pepper here, do you?”
we do not. But… can I get you my special recipe of ginger ale? ” “Sounds
perfect!” and your smile made him almost drop the drink out of the glass.
look familiar, did you bartend at that club downtown?” he went undercover there
once, but he was disguised as a female bartender… you have a good eye, huh? “You’re
probably mistaking me with someone else.”
“Hum… this is really good! What did you put in
here?” “It’s a secret, I’m sorry.” “Ohhh, secret man, huh?” “You have no idea!”
what other drinks do you have a special recipe for?” “A few, but they’re mostly
non-alcoholic.” “Will do.” He smiles seeing you’re so willing to taste what he
risked himself on doing.
bartender who’s an expert in non-alcoholic drinks… that’s ironic.” “I prefer
contradictory. I feel like I’m very contradictory in a lot of stuff.”
my friend it’s just like that in a lot of ways, maybe you two would get along.”
“Oh… I bet your friend isn’t contradictory, too much contraction make a person
human.” Oh… how come you look even more attractive when you’re serious?
“Anyway… let’s bring her here and see what she thinks.”
he would like to see you again, he didn’t have time, it was time to move on
with his mission. And… well, he didn’t really deserve to talk to your friend…
let alone with you.
I swear he was right here, the hottest and smartest bartender I ever knew. You
would have liked him so much.” “More than you do? I doubt it.”
now after you two met at Rika’s apartment, you realized he was no bartender,
but he’s still the hottest and smartest guy you’ve ever seen.
was at this bar looking for a possible target. Everybody here felt hopeless.
this tipsy girl who sat next to him in the balcony and… looked straight at him
and… smiled. Ugh… what is wrong with you?
on a scale of 1 to 10, how lame is this band playing right now?” “11” you
laughed, and he felt… surprised, he never made anyone laugh.
guitar player is my friend’s ex. Isn’t he pathetic? Look at him! He thinks he’s
so punk and edgy, but my friend told me all about the hissy fit he put when a
cockroach showed up in his apartment. He CALLED HER to go help him!” he nods,
not sure on what to say.
old is he? 45?” he asks. “No! He’s not even 30!” “Oh… so what’s with the
mullet?” you laugh again, and he chuckles.“And
he’s such a prick! You have no fucking clue! Ugh… why do great people settle
with garbage relationships for so long?” “You never know what someone is
thinking, I guess.”
what are you thinking?” “Right now? Paradise.” “Wow… that’s deep, what’s in
paradise?” “So much happiness and peace you feel like never walking away.”
“Hum… sounds like a dream.” “You think so?” “Yeah…” interesting…
are you thinking?” he needs to know more about you. “Me? Hum… that my friend
and you could really get along, it would be nice for her having a little taste
of paradise after so much garbage.”
“Just wait here, I’ll bring her so you two can meet.” What? He doesn’t care
about no friend of yours! He barely cares about you! Though you looked really
interested in paradise before…his paradise…
he already knew what to do. But you did too, so you brought your friend and let
him alone with her, winking playfully, Shit!
a little while, your friend met you next to the bathroom. “Hey! What are you
doing here? I thought you were already going to paradise with the cute little
punk there.” Your friend scoffs. “Paradise what? I mean, forget it, he was
interested in you, anyway.” “In-in me? Nah, he wasn’t!” “He was, he even asked
me for your number. So… good luck with that, the guy was kinda weird.”
you were going to need so much more than luck to escape from the paradise he
was planning for you when the right moment would come…
*Yang stares at her sister, the tv remote falling from her hand as well as the spoon in her mouth as her jaw drops.* How do I... Are you... Did you just ask...
Flirt. How do you flirt with someone you like?
Yeah. I get that. But YOU, my baby sister, likes someone? Like, like-like like how I like Blake.
I like-like you too, Yang. *Blake said as she turned a page of her book, nuzzling her head in Yang's lap.*
I think her means love. *Ruby corrected before muttering* And after having to burn my bed sheets after walking in on you two there is no doubt about it.
You should have knocked. But forget that. YOU LOVE SOMEONE!?
Well I wouldn't say Love. Just really really like and may want to do stuff with... Kissing stuff.
Well who is it!? Weiss? Oscar? Penny?
But to Yes to Who? Weiss, Oscar, or Penny?

Yep. Weiss is so cool and my bff. Oscar is soooo cute and has pretty eyes and is really nice. *Ruby smiled happily, Her sister and future sister-in-law swearing they are seeing anime sparkles around her.*
*At this Ruby innocent smile turns into a more lustful one as she blushes.* Oh Penny. So Sexy and beautiful. God I want to ride her all day loooooo.... *ruby trailed off, smile disappearing as she blush grows.*
D-...Did I just say that out load? *Yang and Blake nod and in an instant Ruby disappeared in a cloak of petals.*
Welp, I'm going to have to kill all three of them.
*Tried to get up.* There no putting the breaks on this It's going down.
*Blake sighs and gets up before Yang only to pounces her laying on top of her.* How about I go down on you and you forget about your sister love life?
Blake, I love you but My big sister duties must be-
#272: You And Your Child Visit Him At Work | CEO!AU
Heeey in case you haven’t noticed I currently have a fanfiction going on which is pretty cool and CEO!Luke. It’s called When We Collide and is a classical one with Y/N being his assistant but with a huge twist! Go check it out if you’d like :3
“Look who’s here!” Luke barely got the chance to turn around on his chair when the sound of your voice echoed in his office. Neither did you get the chance to open the door fully before your son had sprinted into the office without hesitation. He was searching for one thing and that was his dad. “But you weren’t supposed to be here before I was off.” Luke asked a bit confused and stood up from his chair, feeling William collide right into his knees. “I know.” You grinned and walked forward to give him a kiss, “But I don’t know who was most impatient, him or me. So we decided to show up a little bit before. Just so he could see you working.” “Well what a nice visit.” Luke smiled and lifted William up so he could place him in his chair. He was definitely too small for the large space, he looked smaller than he already was but it couldn’t compare to the large smile on his face. “Here.” Luke grinned as you took a seat on the couch and watched them. He loosened the tie around his neck and wrapped it around William instead. Too long for him to use but it was all worth it because of his reaction. “Look who’s the CEO now.” Luke grinned widely and walked around the desk to take a seat in front of him. “Give him your best impression, honey.” You suggested and folded your hands together, the scene was so adorable. William looked unsure for a second deep in thought but then it happened. “Daddy, you’re fired!” Both your eyes widened in surprise by the stern words coming from your son, but the apple didn’t seem to fall that far from the tree. “I am?” Luke asked a bit surprised but he was laughing. It was the funniest thing he had heard in a long time, especially when it came from his son. “Maybe you’re saying that too much.” You mumbled but he shook his head in disagreement. “It doesn’t matter.” He grinned over and ran his hair through William’s blond hair. “I’m proud.”
“I’m so sorry.” You were quick to say once you rushed into the office with an apologizing face. You weren’t supposed to be out for that long but deciding to be the one to pick out lunch at the same time as everyone else you couldn’t avoid the long queues. Calum had said it would be okay to look after Willow until you came back it was after all only a small visit for lunch you had decided to do. With his busy schedule it was hard to find days to do something together so you had to do things the way it was at his office. “I hope it didn’t ruin anything that I was gone for that long.” “Actually,” Calum spoke and looked down at Willow with a secret smile on his face. “She just starred in her first ever office meeting. It wasn’t something I could cancel that urgent so it had to be done with her on my lap.” She was having the most excited smile on her face but still kept quiet because she still felt like she had to. She was also this secret, there was something between them that you couldn’t get into. “And that went well. Did you control everything?” You asked excited and met your daughter’s eyes. She nodded her head proudly in agreement, it was funny to see how much she enjoyed being here. “She was the one saying hello to everyone. They were pretty surprised to see a child on my lap.” Calum explained and rolled the chair out to place Willow on the floor and let her run towards you instead. “They said they didn’t believe I could have a sweet side.” You laughed quietly by his words and leaned down to pick up Willow and embrace her in your arms. “Well I understand that.” You said and removed some hair away from her face. “You go from being the big boss to a sudden sweetheart. You shouldn’t be showing your weak side like that.” “No, they’ve finally figured out my weakness.” Calum said and nodded his head in agreement, deciding to give a kiss on each of your cheeks happily.
“Your majesty.” Michael politely said and grabbed the crown of his head to bow down. The excited smile on Celeste’s face was worth everything and her small ponytails were flying back and forth by her movements. The pink skirt she was wearing completely presented who she was, his little princess. His office looked nothing like the same. It wasn’t supposed to end out like this but Michael was secretly a playful father and when he got the chance he turned a game into something else. The whole floor was covered in toys and whatever you had brought with you for a visit at work. She wasn’t supposed to disturb his work like this but with Michael’s lack of concentration when you were there it was okay. “This way dad.” She pointed happily and started to twirl around. Michael nodded his head in agreement and placed the crown back on his head after bending down. They started to run around the desk you had been placed at, watching them fool around and giggle loudly. You knew Michael had some work to do and it was probably the best idea that he focused on it but the small moment in front of you was too adorable to disturb. Your thoughts seemed to come true though when the door suddenly opened. Michael and Celeste froze in track by the sound and looked over to see two males stand with confused gazes wondering what was going on. “Mr. Maverick, “Mr. Johnson. I will be ready for our meeting within two minutes.” Michael’s face had turned pale and the room had become completely silent but you had to do everything in your power not to laugh. “Give us a second.” Michael explained and quickly took the crown off his head to be a little more professional. But the second the two colleagues in dress shirts left the office he put it right back on his head. “Two minutes more girls.” He said daringly and within seconds the office had turned into a play ground again, giggles filling the air all at once in excitement.
“Oh my god! Would you look at you!” Ashton barely got the chance to stand up from his chair before Daniel was sprinting towards him, almost knocking down something during the process. The sleeves of his dress shirt was far too long but nicely folded just for the occasion. It wasn’t often he was brought with you for work but today was something different and he wanted to stand out. Everything he was going to wear needed to be something Ashton also owned, they had to be identical twins. “Your assistant also thought he looked handsome.” You smiled and watched Ashton lean down to take Daniel up and let him sit on his lap. They looked exactly alike, it all was there. The nice dress shirt, the tie and the curly locks that they both shared. “He is handsome.” Ashton said completely impressed by the effort. He loved every single moment with his son and to see this meant the world to him. “You think I am? It’s too big for me.” He sounded a little bit worried but Ashton had no idea. He knew when he saw a star and that was everything about his son. “Of course I do. You will grow out of it eventually, one day you will fit it perfectly. But why didn’t you want me to just buy a personalized one that would match your body size?” He asked with a bit of wonder and Daniel stood up on his lap. He was baffling his hands in the air to express himself and Ashton decided to take his hands to not make him fall. “Because I wanted to look exactly like you dad.” He explained and Ashton had a bit of wonder on his face. “We took the clothes from your closet. I hope you don’t mind.” You said the last bit a little bit quieter, knowing that he did in fact not mind. “Of course not. It’s worth everything.” Ashton said in honesty, helping out Daniel just to make sure that his tie was sitting more correctly. The proud smile on his face was everything.
As much as I adore all the “Humans are space orcs” posts, how has nobody come up with the idea that we’re the comparatively boring ones and most other species have incredibly complex cultures
Just imagine planets known for having orchestras composed of 246 different instruments, galaxies that have colors we never could have imagined ourselves, and Space food made with Weird Space Spices that tastes so freaking good and you can only get in Space
Imagine that, because other species have had interplanetary contact for so much longer than humans, that all their cultures have mixed together in one great Space Melting Pot and there’s a planet that’s basically Space NYC where all of it combines together to create one big Space Culture with everything from the biggest Space Art Museums ever to Kashyyyktown and Little Vulcan
Picture the Space Renaissance, with sculptors who use Space Stone and sculptors who use holograms instead of physical material. Painters who create landscape paintings that make up whole valleys that you have to use Space VR to look at. Interior design that combines popular styles from various planetary systems in order to create one Ultimate Space Decorating Style
And by the time that humans get to space and join everyone else, and ask, “Hey, did anyone ever pick up the stuff we sent with Voyager 1?” and it turns out that Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, and Chuck Berry are all intergalactically loved, and Space Teens have Cool Space Ringtones like “Wild Dog” and “Train”
And to us as a species we seem pretty boring, but over time it becomes clear that every species feels that way (except for the especially pretentious and snobby ones), but really all Space Culture is Space Cool and eventually it all melds together and no one knows or cares whether the Beatles were from Earth or if they were from Mars, cause everyone at least know they came from our solar system and that they’re one of the greatest bands of all time, and that’s what really matters

summary: you and your boyfriend go out for a walk by the river and decide to drink a little. You get a bit tipsy and blurt out that you don’t like how he always wears snapbacks because they cover his beautiful face.

Your night had started off how it always did. Mark and you both sitting snuggled on the couch going through Instagram and reading articles. Then Mark turns to you and says “you know this doesn’t happen often, but I want to go out.” The two of you decide to buy beers at the convenience store and go for a walk by the river. The evening breeze is a cool as your drinks and both of you walk in comfortable silence.
After two cans you have become pretty tipsy, and Mark has yet to show any signs of the same. You reach a spot where both of you can sit and watch the sunset. “Darling~~” You say almost slurring. He just laughs. “Yes~~” He sings back, imitating you. “Is there anything you wou-would change about me?~” He doesn’t even pause before you hear “Of course not. Why do you have one for me?” You laugh and say “Let me see…”
You motion for him to stand up you twirl your finger around, and just for your amusement, he does a spin.You examine everything his perfect feet, and skinny long legs, his toned torso that you could still imagine under his layers of clothes; his arms that had held you a thousand times; his sculpted collar bones and soft kissable neck. But as you scanned upward his face was masked by the front of his snapback. A signature piece for Mark, but an inconvenience to you.
