You’d been preparing for this since you stepped foot on the campus that was designated to help you catch up to the dreams you had been chasing. You knew when you did this for the first time four years ago that you would have to do it again, do it twice. You knew when his fist touched yours that you would have to watch him do this too.
And yet, nothing prepared you.
Not the hours spent in the library clutching your knees to your chest under tables, nor the quiet minutes gliding around the ice just to feel the cold air on your skin. Even the hours spent with him winding down with beers and Mario Kart, the cuddling in bed watching his skin turn pink everywhere you touched weren’t enough.
Not even momma telling you at dinner after the first time you did it: “You’re going to do this again baby, and I’m going to be just as proud of you then as I am now.”
As you look into the crowd at your momma clinging to your dad’s arm watching you walk, at your dad’s bright proud grin, at your sisters’ incessant screaming before they’ve even called your name, you wonder if you’re ready. People have done this time and time again, hell, you watched two of them the year before and you’re still watching them, as they barrel head first into success. That doesn’t quite satisfy the monster in your stomach clawing its way up to sit heavily in your chest.
But still, you walk.
You’re seated now and he’s coming up on stage, larger than everyone who shakes his hand, larger than life itself. You’re on your feet clapping before they even finish his name, Adam Birkholtz, and he slides a wink your way, knowing it will make you blush. God, you love him. Larissa is next, a dwarf in equal measure to Adam’s giant, and you scream for her too, make a vow for her sake to never mention the tears in her eyes. Finally, finally, you’re up next, sound muffled as they call your name: “Justin Oluransi, our valedictorian, graduating Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s in Biology!” The crowd is booming and you’re overwhelmed by the sheer volume of people congratulating you, celebrating you. You’re not sure where you’re going next, but you know, with all the people who have your back, now and forever…

38. Describe your dream girl/guy?
Someone who would be the VoDkA to my Reb lmao um someone who is into true crime. Someone who doesn’t care about what other people think, and who is a thrill junkie. Someone who will say what they are thinking even it offends others. Someone who doesn’t lie. Violent, dark sense of humor, and loyal. Someone who would totally be down to just cuddling in bed together watching horror movies and killer documentaries.
Aw, poor baby. Get something your stomach can handle, grab some tissues, and cuddle up in bed with your laptop. Feel better soon!
Thanks you guys! I’m staying home to sleep today because my head is absolutely killing me. So I’m just going to stay in bed all day.
Also, I probably won’t have any fanfiction updates this weekend just because I’m writing for the Undertale Dating Simulator, and I have to have some scripts finished by next week. So once those are done, I’ll update BPT and then SSLL. Probably in that order. BPT is in dire need of an update.
Concept: Your arms are wrapped around me as we lay in bed. We talk and make jokes and call each other empty insults to make each other laugh. You press kisses to my cheek every so often and I can feel your fingers tracing my side. We’re finally together and everything feels right and happy.
