Marinette woke slowly, the soft rumble reeling her out of a pleasant dream and the unmistakable vibration of her pillow steadily grounding her in reality. But even when she blinked open her eyes it still took a moment to place the sound. At first she thought it was her phone.
But then she remembered what had been happening before she fell asleep.
Root beer floats on the balcony. Video games until well past two in the morning. Giggling at a comic book on her bed untilㅡ
no, that was definitely the last thing she remembered. As if in response to this, she became aware of a glossy page plastered to her cheek. Sitting up, she peeled the comic book off and tossed it aside, afraid to look behind her at the other side of her bed. Because if he’d simply left, then what was that suspiciously purr-like sound? Man, they’d fallen asleep on accident again, hadn’t they?
In the darkness Marinette peeked over her shoulder at him, then immediately sqeaked in terror when she saw his bare arm and wrenched her pillow up to press it over her eyes.
He isn’t transformed. Oh my god, he detransformed in his sleep!
Okay, I've seen tons of fics and hcs about Zen falling for MC while she is with Jumin, but what about the other way around? Jumin falling for MC while she's in love with Zen hcs, pretty please?
Hum… interesting… and maybe a little angsty? Yep, definitely!
Hope this is what you wanted:
Jumin falls for MC while she’s with Zen
It started after a meeting, Jumin was trying to hire Zen to model to some C & R product, and you, as his manager, was discussing the terms on his contract
Jumin was impressed, you were confident, persuasive, and smart. And when the deal was set, you smiled so sweetly he felt a heat growing inside him.
You were different from what he remembered, that sweet girl who used to fangirl over Zen with his assistant has turned into this powerful business woman, without losing that sweetness from the messenger.
He catches himself thinking of you often. Will you log in the messenger today? What will you talk about with him?
He just realized this wasn’t just admiration seeing some photos that were on the news. You between Zen and him with the subtitle: Musical star Zen and his manager/fiancée pose with C & R’s director Jumin Han, celebrating a new model contract.
He couldn’t stop staring at that picture. Zen holding your waist and smiling while he placed a hand in your shoulder, he remembers the smoothness and warmth of your skin and… what’s happening?
He makes excuses to see you more often, always offering Zen gigs and setting meetings about guests for RFA parties.
Some of them happen in his penthouse, having you in his home makes him feel so comfortable, for some reason.
Even Elizabeth seems to like you, she rubs her head in your leg and you caress her smiling. He suddenly wonders how would it feel having your fingers running in his hair slowly.
Seeing you with her finally makes him understand. He wants you.
“I hope I’m not bothering you by asking you to meet me in my house, MC.” “No, not at all, I prefer RFA meetings happening in less formal places. Plus, it’s good to see Elizabeth after so long.” And you put her in your lap, making her purr. He feels like he could purr too just seeing you like this.
“I thought you didn’t like cats…” he needs to distract himself from his wild thoughts. “I like cats, I just can’t have them around because of Hyun.” Hyun? Ah, Zen… he was forgetting about Zen…
“How is he? How are… you two?” he’s curious after you shared this little fact about not being able to be around cats, maybe there are other things you’re sacrificing to make Zen happy?
“He’s fine. Very busy with recording sessions and photo shoots, but everything is… pretty great. We’re both so tired all we want to do is sleep all day, but we still have a wedding to plan, so… yeah, we’re happy.” You smile so sweetly he could melt, but you’re talking about your happiness and your wedding with another man, and he stiffens immediately.
“The wedding… yes, Luciel keeps bothering me about Zen’s bachelor party, he wants me to host. Can you imagine?” your eyes gleam. “Would you? Don’t take me wrong, but I’d be happy knowing you’re taking care of this, taking care of Hyun. I know you wouldn’t let things go out of control. You’re a control freak just like me, right?” he’s happy to know you two have something in common, even if it sound a little like an offense.
“Well, if this will manage to calm you down, I’ll do it. I happen to know brides should never feel stressed.” You laugh softly, oh… making you laugh is much more than he could ever ask.
“Thank you, Jumin. No stripers, ok? This would be inconvenient for his career… and who am I kidding? I would be jealous as hell.” “I wasn’t thinking of inviting stripers. And may I say Zen would be the most foolish man alive if he ever left you for stripers?” you blush a little… oh god…
“Thank you, Jumin. Oh! Look at the time! I have a meeting with this TV producer. If they’re offering a deal for a soap opera again, I swear I’ll rip someone’s head off!” you gently put Elizabeth on the floor “Anyway, wish me luck!”
“Good luck. Not that you need it, you’re competent enough to set this by your own merits.” He notices a pale shade of pink again, god… Zen is the lucky one here.
You pass right beside him and pat his shoulder. “Thank you for the bachelor party. I knew I could trust you. I always can.” You’re close, too close… but you’re happy with Zen, and you trust him, doing something would only make you lose the only sweet feeling you have for him, he can’t lose your trust…
“It’s nothing. I couldn’t risk having one of C & R models in a scandal about stripers.” He shrugs, trying not to look at your beautiful face.
“Yes, sure.” You squeeze his forearm lightly “See you around, Jumin. Good bye, Elizabeth!” and you walk away.
Jumin sighs staring at Elizabeth. He wished he could explain to her what’s going through his head, but she wouldn’t understand, not even he does.
He remembers Zen admitting all the jealous he felt before. Jumin couldn’t fully understand at that time, now he does.
Zen would always complain about Mr. Trustfund Kid having everything he wants, but he doesn’t have everything… all he wants is your love, but it belongs to Zen.
For the very first time, he envies Zen. Zen is the one who has everything.
He needs wine to sort out his thoughts. That’s what he always does, right?
He still had hope one day somebody would be able to untangle the knots inside his heart, but the only person capable enough is too busy planning her wedding with another man.
Once again, here he is thinking about a woman that will never be his.
supercat! I just got on the bus and the asshole driver started going again and I fell into your lap. plus points for cat being too distracted worrying about germs. ;)
Kara loves taking public transportation. She loves the chance to see the amazing variety of people in the city, she loves the chance to look out the window and see the buildings roll past, and she loves taking the time to slow down and just exist for a while. When you have super speed, sometimes taking a break to just sit is the most relaxing thing you can do.
She usually spends the time staring out at the people and scenery they pass, having learned early on that most other passengers aren’t comfortable with her staring their way. People watching is always a better idea from a distance, and Kara hates to make people uncomfortable in any way.
The complex beauty of one of National City’s major cathedrals captures her attention when they stop, and it takes a few moments for the sound of complaining from the front of the bus to break into her concentration. It sounds like someone is arguing, and Kara frowns up at the driver as she wonders whether she should try to help. She usually doesn’t, not wanting to attract any attention or get into a situation where she has to use her powers, but if there’s something she can do to help then maybe she should at least try.
When she realizes it’s a mother and teenage son arguing back and forth about whether to take the bus or wait for someone to pick them up Kara decides it isn’t pressing enough to require her attention and turns back to the cathedral, letting the intricate stonework draw her focus in once more. The style is nothing like what she’d known on Krypton, but at the same time it’s somehow the closest thing she’d found.
Something in the details, the way the spires are bracketed against the sky behind them and the way the stained glass windows shine in the light remind her of Argo city and the way she could stare out her window for hours at a time, watching traffic pass below her as she found patterns in the graceful sweep of the buildings. Not many buildings on Earth can earn the same reaction, and when she finds one that can, it’s often nearly impossible to pull her focus. She’s drawn in to the point of shutting out the world around her, and it’s usually the most peaceful part of her day.
Which is what makes it such a surprise when the woman who had been arguing literally falls into her lap when the bus jolts into motion, startling Kara out of her near trance as she looks into the most beautiful eyes she’s ever seen. She could fall into those eyes the same way she falls into the graceful arches of the cathedral behind her, could stare for hours and never once come up for air.
“Oh, are you okay?” Kara manages to ask through her distraction and the sudden shock of having a beautiful woman literally fall into her lap.
“Of course I am,” the woman snaps, and oh Kara shouldn’t find that anger as attractive as she does. “And once I have that incompetent ass of a driver fired for his carelessness, I’ll be even better.”
Nope, definitely should not find that attractive, Kara thinks with some dim portion of her mind that isn’t completely overwhelmed by the sheer presence of the woman in her lap.
“I don’t think Ben did it on purpose,” Kara tries anyway, sticking up for the man mostly out of instinct.
“Be that as it may, he still sent me sprawling into a complete stranger. And while you may not be as germ ridden as every other surface in this death trap, I can’t imagine that was very pleasant for either of us.” The woman sounds very sure, very pointed, and the continued closeness is starting to get to Kara. She should probably help her stand, but the longer Kara sits feeling the warmth of her body pressed against her own, the harder it gets to move. Or think at all.
“Don’t look at it that way,” Kara says, mouth opening before her brain can catch up. “Just think of it as you literally fell for me.”
Her mouth snaps shut as soon as she finishes, and Kara manages to ruin her smooth delivery by flushing deeper than her cousin’s cape. At least the woman looks impressed, isn’t standing to find some other seat and taking her warmth with her.
“Brazen is a good color on you,” she says after a moment, the scowl she’s worn since falling into Kara’s lap softening into a slight grin. “I’m Cat.”
“Well, Kara,” Cat says, leaning forward just enough to make Kara’s breath catch. “Thank you for catching me. You’ll have to let me know how to repay you.”
Suddenly it’s not just Cat’s proximity that’s sending heat through Kara, and for a moment all she can do is. nod silently, wide eyed as Cat’s low voice makes her mind blank.
“I usually accept payment in form of food,” Kara says when she realizes the silent, dumbfounded look might not be the most attractive. She tries to put her own heat into the words, but from the way Cat smirks her seduction game just isn’t as strong as the other woman’s effortless game.
“If that’s your way of asking me on a date, your delivery needs a little work,” Cat says, and Kara’s flush returns. “But luckily for you, the cute works as well as the brazen. Friday, 8pm. I’ll take you somewhere nice.”
Kara nods in disbelief, not entirely sure this is real, that she isn’t imagining everything. She barely manages to remain coherent long enough to exchange numbers, Cat remaining perched on her lap the entire time.
“Well, this is my stop,” Cat says with a strange mix of regret and relief, standing slowly as if already reluctant to tear herself away from Kara.
And Kara finds herself just as reluctant, feeling instantly cold without the warm weight of Cat pressed against her.
“I’ll see you Friday,” she manages to say, watching as Cat turns and walks back to her son, wishing there weren’t quite so many hours between then and now.
Cat nods over her shoulder with a smirk, and Kara all but melts into her seat at the way the simple look makes her feel.
“Damn, girl, you’ve already got it bad,” a voice comes from a few rows behind her, and Kara can only nod.
“I think I really do.”
I think Reggie really likes attention (duh) so imagine being his s/o and trying to do homework but Reggie is like an effing cat and keeps distracting you or taking your pencil away so that you’ll pay attention him
A Supercat prompt if you're still taking them (I miss your fics!) Footage of Cat hotly kissing her female date in an elevator is leaked and goes viral. Cat is unfazed and loving her new status as a sex symbol and lesbian icon. Kara can't stop thinking about the footage and realises that her feelings run deeper than hero worship...
It leaks overnight.
Half of the evening crew is pulled to work on containing the situation, while the remaining journalists attempt to keep things as ‘business as usual’ as possible. The end of the world is no excuse for anything less than perfection at CatCo, why should this be any different? Even if it was far closer to home than some looming threat most people would never actually come face to face with, they still needed to make it seem as if CatCo were unphased by the news.
rfa (or maybe a mini fic with jumin/zen?) when their s/o comes home looking really down and troubled, and when they ask, she just starts self-deprecating, insulting herself, particularly her appearance, because earlier that day someone told her that, "she isn't a girl lol look at her front, it's flat lolol" or something...? i just want to be comforted aah, someone was very rude today and my insecurities just...bursted out;;;;
I saw these as having pretty similar reactions so I decided to put them in one post ^^ also, I’ve kept MC genderless for all except Jaehee and Seven. and anon, I know the feeling of people saying rude things and bringing out insecurities, but most of those people are just assholes who can’t deal with their own lame lives and make fun of people to mask that, so just remember that you are 100x better than them and I’m here for you <3
-Admin Ace in Space
this poor little bean is so confused when you come home talking about how much you dislike yourself
you are perfect??? and he loves you??? and he could never imagine someone like you being insecure??
he gets surprisingly serious and wraps his arms around you
“MC… I never believed anyone would love me. I mean, I’m short, I have a horrible work ethic, all I do is game… but you love me. And I love you, no matter what you think about yourself.”
for the rest of the day, you can expect surprise kisses and hugs at any moment
he holds you really close to him at night and murmurs how much he loves you until you fall asleep
he may be new to romance and stuff, but he never wants to see you upset and does whatever he can to make you smile
dating him, you’re bound to have some insecurities
I mean, the guy is a God
but he soon manages to pick up on the tell-tale signs that you’re wallowing in insecurities
and he hugs you from behind and kisses your cheek
and tells you how much he loves you
when you come home one day self-deprecating because of what some stranger said, he’s really pissed
how dare anyone say something bad about his angel???
he’s EXTRA romantic for the rest of the day, constantly doing little things for you
if you’re okay with it, he has you lay down and kisses every part of your body that you’re insecure about
she’s been there, she’s had her fair share of guys tell her she doesn’t look feminine enough and that no guy would want her
joke’s on them, she’s dating the best woman in the world
and she makes sure you know it
she curls up on the couch with you, a movie running in the background, and whispers sweet nothings in your ear
Baehee is the sweetest
you two share stories about bullshit guys have said to you and end up laughing about it
and you make fun of them instead of yourself
she leaves cute notes on the mirror reminding you how perfect you are so that you can start every day feeling a little better about yourself
he won’t let you be insecure for even a few moments
immediately puts Elizabeth 3rd on your lap because we all know cats are perfect distractions
wraps his arm around your waist and holds you close
when you tell him that you’re feeling even more insecure than usual because of what a stranger said to you, he’s livid and ready to sue the bastard
pulls you in his lap and buries his face in your neck
when you ask him what he’s doing, he says, “This is now your insecurity-free zone. As long as I’m holding you, you’re surrounded by my love and can’t feel bad about yourself”
what a dork he’s perfect
it surprises you that he’s going for the “distract you by being funny” routine, but honestly? it works
the great Jumin Han making jokes to cheer up the love of his life
he’s still ready to sue whoever said anything bad about you
MC is insecure???
no no no no
sure, he’s insecure as fuck, but YOU’RE not allowed to be insecure
he sits you down and cups your cheeks
“MC, being insecure is my thing. You’re so wonderful and perfect and I love you, and if you think you’re ugly, then what am I?”
tickles you to make you laugh and tells you how much he loves you
when he hears someone said you’re too flat-chested he gets pissed
“I love your boobs!”
vouches to find that asshole and hack his bank account
whenever you feel down or bad about yourself, he distracts you with jokes or just hugs you really tight
“I’m hugging the bad feelings away! None of them can escape God 707!”
honestly who can focus on disliking themselves when you have this wonderful mess of a human being wrapped around you
the SECOND you have even the SLIGHTEST insecure thought, this boy is there
it’s like he has a built-in radar or something
and he takes your hand and kisses it softly and asks you to tell him what made you feel bad
when you explain that a stranger made a rude comment about you, be prepared for the shock of your life
Kim Jihyun, the world’s softest man, is angry
he may be an absolute pacifist, but he is so mad at whoever made you feel bad about yourself
because you deserve so much better
and he isn’t afraid to tell you that
he has a grumpy lil pout as he hugs you tightly and you can’t help but smile
because how is this man even cute when he’s mad
if you still feel bad after that, he talks about his own insecurities and how he also has to try every day not to let them get the best of him
and you two manage to have a good talk and let everything out
which is followed by you trying to out-pamper each other
