Brown sugar was a smell that had grown to make your heart swell, the familiar scent one that lingered in the air of Chanyeol’s apartment every time you stepped inside. The feeling of the plush carpet of his bedroom floor was now your favorite thing to feel in the morning, second only to his lips on your skin. Hearing his groggy morning voice was your preferred alarm, closely followed by the humming he’d do while he brushed his teeth. Everything about him had grown along you, for a month straight Chanyeol had tightened his grip around your heart more with each word that left his lips. He was unsure and slow, not taking any steps too big to backtrack from should he need to. You knew to anyone else you’d probably seem stupid, staying with someone who couldn’t promise you more than what you were now, a non-relationship relationship with a non-committal boy who got anxious even saying the word boyfriend.
“You’d better take her back to headquarters, Namjoon will want to know why she’s still alive."
"You can stop pretending to be asleep now.” Jungkook whispered as he started the car engine, “Taehyung can’t see us through the blackout windows.” His comment was everything but comforting, you were awkwardly sprawled across the back seat of a car without blacked out windows, about to be taken to some kind of headquarters where you would no doubt be killed.
“Who are you? What do you want with me? Are you going to kill me?” Your voice wobbled as you sat up in the car so you could watch the city lights zoom past you, the memory of Jungkook killing a man still playing in your mind,
“If I wanted you dead I would have killed you by now.” His voice was stern and flat, emotionless.
"I’ll explain everything in time. Which way is your apartment?"
"I’m not telling you where I live! Are you crazy?! You just shot a guy in the face! I- I thought we were going to-"
"Don’t underestimate me and just tell me what I want to know. How do I get to your apartment?"
"I could always pull the car over and break your fingers until one of them points me in the right direction."
Plot: The best part about being an assistant in a lab was watching all new inventions come to life, although sometimes some of them fail, leaving them away in a storage room, never to be bothered with; free for the taking.
Pairing: Kim Taehyung x Reader | Jeon Jungkook x Reader
Genre: Fluff, angst, Futuristic au!
Notes: Gif cred goes to the owners! And lol I looked at my storyboard wrong. NOW, there are 2 more parts left (there are 12 parts). :)))) I’m such a fuck up sometimes, sorry for scaring your guys lol. Enjoy! 4k Words
The information you just found had you immediately rushing out of the messy apartment with your car keys and lab coat. Instead of waiting around and panicking, you were going to act quickly – you figured you needed to before something even worse happened.
No seriously, What the hell Jitters ? I get giving the flash name to a coffee, he was the one who rebuilt it but Zoom ? Really ? When he killed a dozen police officers right in that room, Why would you do that ?
Request: (By @smurryheartbeatz) Could you write a Drabble where reader is Barry allens sister but she fell in love with Winn and moved to the other earth to be with him, and she’s homesick?
A/N: Ok, so this got a wee bit angsty, but not too bad.
“Hey, are you okay?” Your boyfriend came and sat next to you on the couch.
You had been staring out of your apartment window all morning as you let the mug of coffee in your hands grow cold.
“What? Oh, yeah, I’m sorry.” You sighed. “I guess my mind’s somewhere else today.”
“You wanna talk about it?” Winn draped his arm around your shoulders.
put your mug on the coffee table and leaned back into his embrace. His
arms tighten around you as you tucked your feet up under yourself and
rested your head on his shoulder. The sound of the rain against the
window lulled you into a nostalgic state.
“I was just
thinking about this one time after Joe took us in, we were playing in
the park and it just opened up and started pouring down rain. So, he
yells for us to come back to the car before we get soaked, but he went
from having one kid to three pretty much overnight and he just doesn’t
have a handle on it yet.” You chuckled, “Now Iris and Barry are good
kids, so they come when they’re told, but me, being a rambunctious
six-year-old, I’m not done playing yet. So, cut to a Benny Hill style
montage of Joe chasing me around the park, slipping in the mud, while
Barry and Iris are watching from the car and making bets on who will
outlast the other. It must’ve looked ridiculous, because when he finally
dragged me back to the car, Barry was the happiest I’d seen him since
what happened with our parents.”
“So, what you’re telling me is that you were always this much of a handful, huh?” He gave your arm a squeeze as he laughed.
“Yeah, I guess so.” You smiled up at him.
You sighed heavily, causing him to instinctively begin playing with your hair, which began to soothe you.
“It all seems like so long ago. When did our lives become so chaotic?” You pondered.
would say probably when we started hanging out with superheroes.” He
chuckled to himself.
“Yeah, probably.” You laughed similarly.
his calming touch, you couldn’t help but feel a wave of sadness washing
over you. Perhaps it was the cold and the gloomy sky the rain brought
“I honestly don’t know how Barry does it all.” You
shook your head. “He went years with people not believing him about
Thawne, and then he gets these powers and has to save the city
constantly, and then Zoom…”
You felt a lump in your throat
that you tried to swallow. “God, he had to watch as that monster shoved his hand through our father’s heart. He had to watch both our parents
“I couldn’t possibly begin to imagine what that must have
been like.” Winn was apologetic and somber. “But he’s strong and I think
a majority of that strength comes from others. I think most of it comes
“Yeah? Some pillar of strength I turned out to be?” You muttered.
“What’s that supposed to mean?”
just… sometimes I feel like I abandoned him.” You could sense Winn
wanting to protest, but he waited for you to finish. “He’s always facing
off against some bad guy and the moment he’s finally happy and things
are quiet, when we can finally spend some quality family time together, I
leave. I just up and leave for some parallel universe. Don’t get me
wrong, I love you and I love being here, but I feel like I turned my
back on my family to do so.”
“That’s bull and you know it.
Nobody forced you to come here and more importantly, nobody forced you
to stay there. Your family knew the risks and the rewards. They knew
what would make you happy and they let you go. They love you and would
do anything for you,” his slightly agitated tone softened to a more
loving one, “including letting you run off to a parallel dimension with
some nerdy computer programmer.”
You couldn’t help but laugh, “Well, who could blame them? He is pretty hot.”
“He thinks you’re pretty hot, too.” He playfully rolled his eyes.
You gave him a quick kiss on the cheek.
“So then, why don’t you call Barry using that, uh, inter-dimensional extrapolator that Cisco made you?”
“The communication function is busted.”
well let me take a look at it and see what I can do.” He offered. “In
the meantime, you can still use it to make a breach and go visit him.”
don’t know. He’s probably really busy fighting some new big bad. I
swear, there’s always someone.” You rolled your eyes. “Besides, I’ll
probably just get in the way. Or get myself captured because I don’t
know what I’m walking into.”
“Or, hear me out here, you
could spend a nice weekend with your brother.” He waved a hand. “If I’ve
learned anything from working with Kara, it’s that there is never going
to truly be a quiet time. There is always going to be some bad guy to
fight or some kitten to save. There’s never going to be some ideal time
to live your life. You have to live it in the here and now. You have to
make your own happy moments, not wait for them to magically appear. So go,
visit your brother. And if it’s a bad time, make the best of it.”
“Did I ever tell you that you’re the smartest man I know?” You smirked. “And I know a lot of smart men.”

was suppose to be a easy mission. You and Barry were suppose to just
catch a metahuman that has been trying to destroy the city but Zoom
shows up, knocking you on to the ground and breaking Barry’s spine.
You call out in a panic as you watch your partner fall to the ground,
not being able to move. Zoom soon press his foot down right out Barry’s
spine, causing him to cry out in pain.
“Let this be a warning
little fish, I am the fastest man alive. Not you’re precious savior
Flash.” Zoom presses down harder on to Barry’s back, making him scream
“Stop it!!” You yell, getting up and charging at him but
before you can reach Zoom, he’s already picking you up by your throat.
“The League is coming little fish. Be ready.” And with that, Zoom drops
you and speeds off. Literally. You stare in the distance in fear of Zoom
coming back but the sounds of Barry’s painful coughs brings your back.
You quickly come over to him as he coughs up his own blood.
in there Barr. It’s going to be alright.” You say before getting a hold
of Cisco and Caitlin. “Guys, you have to hurry down here quickly,
Barry’s hurt.” It does take long before Cisco comes in the S.T.A.R.
labs van, helping you with Barry. You guys make it back to the lab just
in time to get Barry checked out by Caitlin, “Well, his spine is broken
but since he heals fast, he’ll be back on his feet in no time.”
out cold and that metahuman is still out there.” Cisco says while you
come back in the room from keeping an eye on Barry.
somebody say cold?” You, Caitlin, and Cisco turn towards the doorway and
see none other then Leonard Snart a.k.a Captain Cold leaning against
the door frame.
“Okay, we really need to get better security on them doors.” Cisco mumbles.
“What are you doing here Snart?” You ask in a harsh tone as Snart walks in, his hands in the pockets of his blue parka.
here for the kid.” He states, looking around. “And why is that?” You
ask again. Snart looks you up and down before responding. “Barry owes me
a favor and I came here to maked uses of that.” Snart says.
You cross your arms under your chest. “Barry won’t be doing any favors for a while, so you should come back another time.”
Snart shrugs a shoulder. “Can’t do that.”
“And why not?” You ask.
He shrugs again. “Don’t want to.”
been hurt Snart.” Caitlin steps in, noticing the annoyed look on your
face. “Pretty badly actually, so Barry’s going to be spending his time
healing.” Snart’s silent for a moment, thinking about what he’s going
to do next. “Fine then. You, girl with the sour face. You’ll have to
take care of it then.” He points at you.
“And what makes you think I’ll help you?” You ask, feeling your fists balling up.
looks at you. “Because, while the kid’s away you’re the second one in
charge around here.”
“Well, I wouldn’t call her second in charge but..”
Cisco mumbles but Snart keeps going. “And whatever mess Barry makes, you
guys clean it up. And guess what, the kid made a mess.” Leonard says.
You close your eyes and take a deep breath, counting to ten while you do before speaking. “And what mess is that Snart?”
starts walking around a little, looking around. He’s been in S.T.A.R.
labs plenty of times but every time he comes in, he always checks his
“Barry was suppose to be taking care of
some..what do you call them? Metahumans?” He ask before turning and
looking back at you. “But he didn’t, now some freak is roaming around
and that’s bad for business.”
“You mean the business where you
steal from people and do bad things for money?” You state but Snart
just smirks. “No need to hang yourself up on the negatives.” He says,
making you roll your eyes.
“Look, Barry’s out of it. If you just give him a couple of days then you can come back.” You state, looking at Snart.
takes a deep breath before speaks. “You’re right. I’ll be around in a
few days then.” He turns on his heels but once he reaches the doorway he
comes back around. “Actually, if I do recall, I remember helping
you out a couple of weeks ago.” He states, looking over at you with a
smirk. “I think it’s time for you to repay your debt.”
stare at Leonard Snart in shock for moment before thinking back to a few
weeks earlier where you were on a solo mission because Barry had to
help out team Arrow. There was a metahuman that could freeze his
surrounding and with your powers to control water, it didn’t help that
every time you tried to fire he’ll just freeze your attacks. Just when
you thought all hope was lost, Snart steps in from out of nowhere. Ice vs
ice, the fight seemed to drag out but it wasn’t until you and Snart combined
your attack were you able to finally take the metahuman down.
watch as Cisco and Caitlin put the metahuman in the pipeline when Snart
comes up behind you. “Looks like you owe me one kid.” He says.
You look up at him with smirk. “Do I now? Because I could of sworn I helped you out too.”
Leonard cocks his head back before speaking. “Tell you what, why don’t we go out for some drinks to celebrate?”
You can’t help but smile. “I could go for a drink. But just one.”
both you and Snart show up at Saints and Sinners, you expect just one
drink but Snart orders a round of shots for you two and you couldn’t say
no to the look on his face. He looked relaxed and stress free. You soon
start taking shots after shots until you were a giggly bubbly mess. The
bar did start to get crowed, causing you and Leonard at the bar top to
talk closely. Even though he doesn’t say much in general, he was
in a mood to talk and to you of all people. It wasn’t until you both
leaned into each other on accident that your lips brushed up against one another.
You both pulled back a bit quickly, staring at each other in surprise but
neither of you moving. You soon felt one of his hands caressing against your
cheek before pulling you back in and kissing you passionately on the lips.
didn’t take long before you were both out of the bar and in a cab back
to your place and once you got there, things started to heat up. Leonard
had you out of your clothes in a matter of seconds and setting you on top of your kitchen table, you legs spread out and on his shoulders. He
stripped off his parka and shirt before getting down on his knees, his
lips kissing and nibbling on your inner thighs.
know that it’s wrong to be hooking up with a criminal like Leonard
Snart but you both knew that it was no going back after this. Soon
enough, he started devouring your pussy, causing you to cry out in
pleasure. His lips sucking and nibbling over your swollen clit while he
started to finger fuck you. You cry out loudly when you came, his name on
your lips while your body shook in pleasure. Snart soon picks you up and carries you to your bedroom where he lays you down before he strips off
the rest of his clothes, leaving himself naked and in full glory. You
weren’t surprised when you saw Leonard’s full size, he had the whole
You were to busy admiring his size that you didn’t
notice your hand stroking his member until you heard his deep moan. “I
want you Lenny.” You whisper as you felt his lips on your neck.
want you too baby.” He whispered back as he slowly slides his thick hard
member between your wet folds, stretching you to fit his size. You wrapped
your legs around his waist to pull him in closer as he starts to thrust
his hips in and out of you harder and harder, his roughness only turns
you on even more.
Between your loud moans and his growling,
you knew you’re next door neighbors were going to complain but you
didn’t care because at this very moment, you were having the best sex of
your life. It wasn’t until your nails were digging hard in his back and his
hard thrusting that you were both cumming. Hard.
After a few
moments of catching your breath and soft kisses, Leonard pulls himself out of you and lays back
down on your side. You bite down on your lip to keep yourself from
grinning from ear to ear. You look over at Leonard, seeing him laying back
with his eyes closed and for a moment you think that he’s asleep.
sit up slowly, about to get out of bed to change when you felt a hand
on your arm stopping you. You turn to Snart, seeing him staring at you
intensely. You sigh, already having a feeling what he’s going to say.
but he cuts you off. “Don’t. Just lay next to me.” He says, his voice
deep and serious. You look at him in confusion before he speaks again.
“Don’t think Y/N, just do what you feel is right.” He lets go of your
arm before laying back and closing his eyes again. You stare at him for a
moment, slowly taking in his appearance up close, notice how his brows
furrow, even when he is laying back he’s still thinking. Or the faint
laugh lines on his face.
You can help but smile a little
while admiring him. “If you’re going to sleep naked, at let cover
yourself up.” You say softly with a hint of humor while you bring your
blankets over the two of you.
Leonard shrugs. “I like sleeping
naked. Plus, it’s not like you didn’t just see all of me just a few
minutes ago.” He says with a smirk on his face while he wraps an arm around
you, pulling you closer to his side.
You can’t help but blush
at the thought of Leonard Snart going home every night and sleeping out
in the nude. “Oh shut up.” You say softly, laying your head down on his
chest as you hear him chuckling a little, his finger tips messaging your
head helps you fall asleep quickly.
It didn’t feel like you wete
asleep for long until your alarm clock go off on your phone, waking you up
so you reach over to shut it off you soon realized that you in your bed
alone. You get out of bed quickly, changing into one of your S.T.A.R.
lab t-shirts and shorts to go look around for Leonard.
You call out, walking into your living room and kitchen. You phone
vibrates with a text from Barry that he’s back in town and to meet him
at S.T.A.R. labs. You quickly shower and change, expecting to Snart to
be there when you got out but your heart sank when you finally realized
that Leonard Snart left and he wasn’t coming back.
over two weeks ago and now here you are, on a mission with the same man
who used you for sex. Snart was going over the plan when he
noticed you zoning out. “Y/N, do I need to go over the plan. Again?”
He ask, you can hear the annoyance in his voice and it only pisses you
off even more.
“No, I don’t care about your plan. In fact, I
can take this metahuman on by myself actually so you are not needed.”
You state, grabbing your gear to head out.
Before you could
head out, Snart grabs your arm, stopping you. “We need a plan to stop
this guy Y/N.” He states firmly but you don’t listen.
your arm away quickly from his grip. “We..” you point between both you
and Snart. “Don’t need anything. Like I said, I can take this guy on
myself without your help so just stay out of my way.” You shove passed
Snart and quickly turn to rush out of S.T.A.R. labs, both Cisco and
Caitlin calling out to you.
Out on your own, you quickly find
out where the metahuman from earlier is hiding out at. Before Zoom came
in, you and Barry were easily handling the meta. ‘This will be a piece of cake..’ You think to yourself but soon you feel a pain on the back of your head before your vision went black.
you finally came too, a bright light on the ceiling disturbs your
vision before you’re able to focus on your surrounds. When you try to
move your hand to your pounding head, you find it chained to a rail
above your head.
“What the hell!?” You test your legs,
finding them chained up as well. You start to struggling, using your
powers to try and break through but they don’t break and soon, the sound
of a door opening stops you.
“Oh, you’re awake.” You hear a
polite voice speaking. You turn you’re you head towards the voice before
seeing a tall middle-age with thick framed glasses comes into view.
are you?” You ask weakly, you vision still a little blurry from being
knocked out. The man walls over towards you before sitting down at the
end of the bed.
“You’re at my home.” He states calmly, not
answering your question while he gestures around the room and you
follow. Noticing the dark red painted walls and vintage style painted
hanging from it. You also noticed to your left side large tanks with
lizards inside them and their heat lamps.
'No wonder is was so hot in here..’ You think to yourself.
“I’m sorry, I’m being extremely rude here. My name is-”
man.” You say, looking at the metahuman you and Barry were fighting
earlier which is the name Cisco gave to you two. The man pauses for a
second, as if he’s processioning what you said.
that’s what they used to call me back in college.” He says in a low
tone. “All my peers, laughing at me.” He soon gets up from the bed and
head back over to the door and opening it. You hear to other voices from
where you’re staying at before he comes back, locking the door behind
him. He comes back over and sits back down. “I used to hate when they
called me that.” He starts again. “I don’t know why. My lizards, they’re
like my family.”
You look at him as if he’s grown two heads. 'This guy can’t be serious..’ “I
don’t know which one is worse. Your own family calling you a freak or
the guys bullying and torturing you.” He stops, thinking. “Or the girls.
I think they were the worst. Always laughing at me..” He clenches his
jaw. “Yeah, they were the worst, laughing at me , setting me up only to
play me in the end for their own amusement. But now that I got this
power, they’re not laughing now.” He lets out a dark chuckle before
turning his attention towards you.
You didn’t notice it before
but it wasn’t until you felt his cold hand on your thigh that were
naked. You struggle against the chains, trying to move away from him.
“They’re not laughing now..” He mumbles as he continues caressing your
“When we fought earlier, I knew you different from
all those other girls from my past.” He says, a faint blush on his
cheeks. “Even before then we I bumped into you. Instead of being mean,
you helped me up. It was your smile..” He whispers, moving up on the bed
until you were face to face. “And your scent.” He soon leans in,
smelling your hair. “You were so nice to me, Y/N.”
soon start moving over your body slowly, “but I was so nervous and
scared to talk to you that I had to follow you. I’m sorry.” He whispers
in your ear, causing you to shake in discomfort. “And then I saw that
you were just like me. You had powers to, just like me and I just knew
that you were the one and the only way I knew you would talk to me is if
I got your attention-”
“So you blew up a park!?” You ask, still struggling against your restrains. “There were innocent people there!”
know and I was going to apologize but your friend, the Flash came
attacking me.” He says. “I’m just as upset as you are. All I wanted to
do was talk to you..”
“And you thought kidnapping and chaining
me to a bed was a good idea?” You narrow your eyes at him but he shakes
his head. “I know you’re upset.” He soon gets off the bed and start
stripping out of his clothes. Once he’s down, he lays down next to you,
stroking your face while you try to struggle harder.
you’re upset Y/N, but I’ll make it up to you..” He whispers and you feel
his lips kissing on your cheek and over your face before moving down to
your neck. You struggle harder but the more you do, the more turned on
he seems to get. 'I don’t have enough energy to fight back against this creep..’ You think to yourself, feeling your own tears starting to well up in your eyes, feeling helpless. 'Please..anyone..help me..’
as he grabs your face you both hear the sounds of gun shots outside the
room. He quickly lets go of your face and gets off you. Soon the gun
fire stops and stands up confused. “Anthony? Jefferson?” He calls out
and you assume he’s calling out to his bodyguards from outside the room.
While his back is turned you try getting out of the chains he trapped
you in, not noticing the door freezing to the point that it breaks,
knocking into Lizard man. The loud crash brings your attention to the
noise and you see Mick Roy and Weather Wizard walking in.
“Mick?” You look at him in surprise as he spots you.
Captain, she’s in here!” He calls back over his shoulder and soon
enough, Leonard Snart walks in and seeings you chained up on the bed,
naked. He makes his way over to you. “Y/N, are you alright?” He ask.
eyes start to well up with tears again before shaking your head. “Just
get me out of these things.” You say, your voice shaking as the emotions
of the situation start to hit you.
Snart doesn’t say
anything else as he looks around him before spotting and grabbing the
key to get you out. Once you’re let free, you throw your arms around
Leonard before he hugs you back. He takes off his parka and puts it
around you before picking you up bridal style to carry you out of the
“What about Lizard man?” You ask, watching Mick and
Weather grabbing him. “Are you going to take him back to S.T.A.R. labs?”
Snart shakes his head. “Well handle him the rogue
way.” He replies. You look up at him for a moment before leaning your
head on his chest and closing your eyes. Snart takes you back to place,
this being the first time ever being there.
He looks over
your wounds and cleaning them for you, letting you shower alone which is
where you cry not only for yourself but for all the other girls Lizard
man probably hurt. Once you’re done with your shower, you step out,
seeing a pair of fresh clothes left out for you and you change into the
long sleeve black shirt and grey boxers, his clothes fitting big on you.
You walk out of the bathroom and find Snart sitting on the
couch in the living room. You look around, noticing a lot of fine art
hanging on the wall and the nice decor in the room. As if sensing you,
Leonard stands up, looking at you. “How are you feeling?”
shrug your shoulders, wrapping your arms around yourself. “Could be
worst.” You reply. “Thanks for the clothes.” You give him a small smile
as he comes over to you.
Leonard grabs a hold of you and
gently pulls you into a hug. “Don’t ever go out on your own again.” He
says and you stand there in shock for a second, wanting to enjoy this
moment with him but all you can think about is when he used you.
talk like you actually care about me..” You say. Leonard pulls back
from you a bit, his hands placed on your shoulders as he stares at you
You smile sadly to yourself. “Don’t play dumb with me Snart. You know what I’m talking about.” You say, looking away.
Leonard looks at you for a moment before sighing, rubbing a hand over his face. “Y/N, that was an accident.”
You shake you’re head. “It’s fine Snart, you don’t have to explain anything to me.”
Y/N that’s not what I meant. What I meant was…I’m a criminal. I do
bad things to people. I hurt people Y/N.” He states boldly, causing you
to look up at him. “I’m afraid my actions are going to hurt the people I
love and if tonight taught me anything it’s that I don’t want you to
get hurt Y/N.” He says, his hand coming to the side of your face,
feeling his thumb brush against your cheek. “You’re too good for me. To
important for me to ruin your life.”
You’re silent for a
moment before speaking, “but that shouldn’t be an excuse for you to just
leave me like that.” You say, feeling your heart beating fast that you
were sure he can hear it.
“Would you have honestly been happy
if I stayed? Knowing that your friends would of found out?” He ask and
for a while you’re stuck. What would of happen if he was there when you
woke up that morning? Knowing yourself, you would of freaked out because
you slept with Leonard Snart, the only enemy that team Flash can’t seem
to get rid of and if they would of found out, things would of been bad.
“I don’t care what other people think.” You
state. “Over a year ago I would of cared but after having my whole world
turned upside down, wondering about what people say or think is the
last thing on my mind.” You look up at Snart, seeing him smirk before
leaning up, pressing his lips against your gently.
about this, because once you’re with me it’s going to be hard to get rid
of me.” He says and you can’t help but smile.
I’ve been trying for a year. I think I’m getting used to it.” You says
back before kissing Leonard Snart again, and this time, you’re not shit
drunk or full of regrets.
Before I get started,
I’d just like to say… *runs quickly before ducking under a desk*
Please don’t stone me. I promise, I’ll do better in the next one I swear
