dancers at the bar

anonymous asked:

Hey ladies! Hope you had a great Easter holiday. Was wondering if you know of any Sterek dancing fics. Either professional or stripper or just out dancing in a club. I read a great one the other day of them meeting in college while dancing in bar and got hooked. Thanks :)

  ….I may have gotten a little carried away with this.  lol  -Emmy

On the Right Track by HalfFizzbin

Stiles is stuck on a broken-down train instead of dancing with Lydia at a swanky New Year’s Eve party, which sucks. OR DOES IT?

The Panty Thief by bleep0bleep 

(2,725 I Explicit I Complete)  *stripper!stiles and stripper!derek

Stiles undulates, slowly unzipping the leather crop top, teasing the crowd with a peek at his nipples, and finally he shrugs out of it, glancing coquettishly over his shoulder.
He falters and misses a step.
What? Why is Derek sitting in the audience? In the front row, too?
Stiles recovers quickly, getting right back into the dance. Fine. Derek wants to be a customer?
Stiles can play.

Turn Me On by rispacooper

“You have got to be kidding me,” Derek mutters, closing his eyes and pinching his nose in frustration. “Laura!” He yells.

“Oh, is the stripper here!?” Laura thumps over from the party area as she’s dubbed it, and skids to a stop next to Derek, throwing an arm around his shoulders. “Heeeey, Stilinski. Looking good, kid.”

“Uh,” Stiles, the Sheriff’s son, blushes. “Laura, you said this was for a friend of yours.”

Laying Groundwork by LunaCanisLupus_22

Or get into his pants. Thank God it’s the latter.

(11,432 I Mature I Complete)  *dirty dancing fusion

“See?” Derek holds his arms out, “Everything’s working out great for you, and I still have no dance partner,” he turns to Erica, “Face it, no one is as good as you.”

“We still have one more,” she sing songs.

Derek peers over to the list, flinches when he sees Stiles’ name, “No.”

“You haven’t even seen me dance, and you’re already dismissing me?” Stiles sails into the room, tossing his bag in the corner as he does so and doing a dramatic spin to face them. “I got moves.”

“What?! Oh god he’s going to dressed as a cop? There’s no way that’ll be hot for Stiles his dad’s the freaking Sheriff and he’s in the academy!” Scott franctically whispers back.

“I know that Scott but what was I going to do?! I don’t want to wait that long, Stiles’ll probably be drunk off his ass by 8:30! Just believe me okay? It won’t matter what he’s wearing he’s 100% Stiles’s type and he won’t be wearing the outfit very long anyways.” Erica whispered with a smirk.

Stiles is perceptive, Scott is a mother hen, Erica dances, Boyd is Zen, Danny is smitten, Matt is nervous, Jungle staff really need to learn to spot fake IDs, and Derek absolutely does not dance.
~~~

Stiles’ mouth fell open. What was all this bossing him around and treating him like a kid? “Yeah? Well … okay, I’ll go. On one condition–dance with me first.”

“Hell. No.” Derek crossed his arms. He stood in the middle of a pulsing throng of hot men on a dance floor and crossed his god damn arms

Wolf Boy by SarkaS 

(20,812 I Explicit I Complete)   *stripper!stiles

He told everyone that he works for a big IT company. When they asked about it and he pulled out all those IT terms and strange words, they never asked again. If he said “work is good”, they believed him, except for Lydia. She would have definitely known what he’s saying, but she didn’t really care. So, win for him. Again.

But now he’s staring at his phone with desperation written on his face and doesn’t know what to do.

I’m going to NYC for my new internship. Spare me a room. L.

Hale Yes by Stiles_Hale_38 

(34,325 I Explicit I WIP)  *stripper!stiles, stripper!derek

Stiles has been needing a job, and asks his friend Cora for help. She tells him her brother owns a strip joint, and that she’s sure she can get him a job.

Stiles has no experience, but needs a job desperately, and knows strippers can make pretty good money, so, Cora tells him to do a little try-out for her, and to both of their shock, he does great. She calls up Derek, who gives him the job, though reluctantly, as he has no experience.

Stiles soon meets Derek, “The Alpha,” as they call him. Derek isn’t rude, but he isn’t exactly enthusiastic, but, he’s the best stripper there, and the owner of the club, so he ends up helping Stiles out with everything.

With Derek’s help and hard work, Stiles quickly becomes the most popular stripper there, apart from Derek.

It’s the biggest night of the year for Stiles, a partner strip . . With Derek. They have a planned routine and it’s hot, but while on stage, they go a little off track. The crowd doesn’t seem to mind, and neither do they.

Sakura Haruno Fic Recommendations

I’m an admitted serial Sakura shipper. If there’s a single man in Konoha (or outside of it), you can almost bet I’ll find a way to somehow ship them. But honestly, even if I don’t necessarily ship them, I may find the story beautiful and put it here for others who ship them. Most are in the Naruto-verse but will be stated otherwise if not. 

Most, if not all, are Rated M. So be warned that almost all of them contain smut/adult content of some kind. I’m trying to branch out and read things that don’t contain smut but it’s a little challenging. I like steamy reads. 

Happy Reading!

Warning: The reason I add stories to my Favorites is that they bring me joy. I find entertainment in them and so I’ll add them for me to enjoy later if I so wish. In some of these stories, the characters might be slightly out of character and it didn’t bother me while reading because the story still made me feel something. So this is warning for those who don’t like any stories that have the characters OOC and avoid them. I put a warning on those I thought might be an issue for others. But like I said. If they are in my favorites, then they’re going to make you giggle and/or cry at some point.

@thebbros Whenever I try to submit my drawings it never works so hopefully just tagging you might be enough? ;w;

I think you might have seen her before but idk, but this is Sweetums, a Batim (or in this case a Babtqftim) version of one of my OC’s, Sweetie :3

She works as a paint dancer, which is kind of like those people you see in cartoon bars who dance and sing for audiences I suppose? Onlyyy she uses a magical paintbrush to create really cool and pretty shapes and designs out of ink as she sings and dances ^^

She’s really nice, and she’s always happy to put on a show. She’s very energetic in her performances and tries to be as inclusive as she can, even if it’s just by dancing or singing around audience members.

She’s overall very kind and friendly, and will try her best to help out anyone in need. Making a living solely based on her short performances is kinda tricky, but she makes the most out of it. ^^ 

(Sorry for the long info thingy and hopefully this isn’t too late to show for the whole background character thing ;w;)

The 4th Episode: A Complete Johnlock Fix-It

The screen is black.  A woman’s voice cuts through.  It’s Molly’s voice.

“Forward? Or Backward?”

A blinding white light floods the darkness.  A pulsating heartbeat. 

“Backward,” sighs Sherlock.

White noise stings as scenes are replayed backward. Sherlock and John running backward.  John’s fist recoiling from Sherlock in the morgue.  The christening, backward. The birth, backward.  The plane glides into the air, tail first. Magnussen’s limp body jolts into standing position, Sherlock puts the gun back in John’s pocket. The flashdrive jumps from the fire, into John’s hand.  The gun drops, the coin falls back into Mary’s fingers. Sherlock raises from Magnussen’s floor, the blood-stained shirt turns freshly white. Mary stands across from Sherlock, gun drawn.

Adam Lambert: Love Letter to the LGBTQ Community

I came up in the clubs and stages of Hollywood. I remember the joy of first feeling like I had found ‘my kind of people.’ I was finally bonding with like-minded aliens that dared to live outside the lines, and on their own terms. We celebrated each other. At 27, I auditioned for the show that would change my life and career forever. I had an amazing experience on American Idol. A dream come true.

Suddenly, the ramifications of being a queer celebrity became overwhelming. I felt a responsibility to do the LGBTQ community proud and reflect our experience as honestly and openly as I could. However, in 2009, we were nowhere near how mainstream we are now. For some fans, I was their first time identifying with anyone queer. No pressure! There were challenges, double standards and prejudices to deal with. There were moments when I thought I may have bitten off more than I could chew. You know how I kept pushing forward? Besides being stubborn as hell? It was all the crazy dreamers I have known over the years.

Y'all are my true inspiration. You’re life lines that have kept me grounded and thankful. All the LGBTQ musicians, dancers, drag queens, bar stars, club kids, DJ’s, designers, actors, stylists, glam squads….. YOU are my circus family. It is because of all those years traipsing round our nocturnal playgrounds that I had any sense of how and why I wanted to stay the course; to rep for my queer family!

And now 8 years later, the LGBTQ community has come SO far. I see fellow artists AND civilians coming out with no apologies and no fucks given. Despite the current obstacles we face, I’m am blown away by our progress. We have come so far. My true fans share the same principles so we continue to welcome other alien weirdos into our family. Thank you ALL for inspiring  and supporting my journey. I promise to keep doing the same for all of you.

- Adam Lambert

Summary: He hears music playing through static-y speakers long before he actually gets anywhere near the school gates. The guitar riff is light and airy, and familiar in a way that James hates. It’s enough to make him start dragging his feet against the rough tarmac of the pavement, pointedly ignoring the tutting noise his mother makes at him. 

darklightandsomethingelse  asked:

I had this random thought while working out today but how would RFA react to a really flexible MC?? Lol sorry if it's weird.

I will probably describe somethings that, if you need to figure out what I’m talking about, I recommend you google, goodness knows I had to.


Yoosung

  • MC used to be gymnast, and while she still kept in shape, she just didn’t compete anymore
  • So one day, Yoosung came home to find MC casually stretching in a skin tight outfit that left very little to the imagination
  • His face was a ball of red hot fire
  • Of course, MC just treated it like a casual, normal, everyday thing that wasn’t any kind of big deal what so ever
  • But Yoosung can’t get the image out of his head and blushes for a few weeks whenever it pops into his head

Jaehee

  • MC got really drunk and decided it was a good idea to aggressively hit on her girlfriend
  • Jaehee, of course, tried to corral her because she was being ridiculous
  • Somehow, MC managed to turn the tides and pin Jaehee to a wall
  • Then she brought one leg  up so that it was resting on Jaehee’s shoulder
  • Needless to say, Jaehee was impressed
  • It took a surprising amount of effort to get this ridiculously drunk and flexible woman back home without any kind of incidents
  • In the morning, MC was surprisingly sore and didn’t remember half the night, but she remembered cornering Jaehee and putting her leg on her girlfriends shoulder
  • So later that day, when they have a moment alone, MC does the same thing and kisses Jaehee, just to see if it will fluster her

Zen

  • MC decided to do yoga in the living room
  • She was in the middle of doing scorpion pose when Zen walked through the door
  • Needless to say, his jaw dropped
  • He could only watch in silence as she went on into chakra bond pose then sleeping yogi
  • Zen was low key freaking out and high key trying to control the Beast to keep it from getting out
  • Because he had never seen anyone move like that
  • Don’t get me wrong, he’d met more than a few flexible people working in theater, but… damn
  • Once MC notices him, she smiles and comes out of whatever pose she’s in and goes to give him a kiss
  • And she teases him when she notices that he’s holding himself back, because she knows that he’s trying to contain the Beast

Jumin

  • MC did ballet, so Jumin suspected she was flexible as was
  • However, he’d never actually watch MC practice
  • One day, remarkably, Jumin finished work early and came home to find that MC was in the dance studio warming up
  • She did once of those dancers splits, where she was standing with one hand on the bar, leaned forward, and made her legs into a straight, vertical line
  • MC continued to stretch and warm up, until she noticed Jumin standing in the door watching her
  • She smiled for him and offered to show him a demonstration of what he could do and Jumin gladly took a seat and simply watched her work her magic
  • Until this moment, Jumin had known that MC was strong, flexible, and elegant, but seeing the three things put together at once as she practiced truly made Jumin’s eyes sparkle in awe of her
  • Of course the woman he loves is perfect, but this just makes her even more perfect
  • After this, Jumin makes it a point to come watch her practice at least once a week

Saeyoung

  • They were having a dare off and Saeran ran for cover
  • MC had dared Saeyoung to do a handstand without using a wall, which he had, to her surprise, pulled off, but not for long
  • So he dared MC to feed herself with her feet
  • It took some maneuvering, careful balance, and holding a spoon just right, but MC was able to feed her self soup with only her feet
  • Saeyoung had suspected at her flexibility due to *ahem* other activities, but now he’s really curious
  • After that, he starts daring MC to do a bunch stretches and poses that are really hard to do, just to see how far she can go (i.e. putting her feet behind her head and so on)
  • In the end, he’s actually kind of flustered, because MC catches on and lets him know that, if he’s really so curious, he could’ve just asked
  • She even offers to give a special demonstration, if he’s interested
Dan & Phil liveshow recommendations (5)

LIES DANIEL LIES!!), Phil is scared of roulette, they haven’t seen strippers just sexy dancers -  they had nipple tassels, Phil shows us the mini bar, “an intimacy kit!” *Dan laughs in the background*, (they’re trying so hard to not be gay it physically hurts), “He will strip because you’re a whore, aren’t you Phil”, they lean up against the window, they do a jumping contest.

April 16, 2013
THEY’RE IN NEW YORK (the grey cardigan returns!), they have a sound malfunction for the first 5 minutes, Fall Out Boy smell like woodland, “you are wearing a DOPE ASS t shirt man!”, Phil is 20% too hyper, they broke snapchat, (Please don’t stalk them, they’re not going to add you so don’t even bother. Their snapchat databases are personal), #PHANHATTEN, Phil peacefully releases the spiders in their apartment because Dan would kill them out of fear, they used to be the biggest Glee fans before it turned shit.

Dan is reading people’s spooky stories, About half way in they talk about spooky stories and their parents, “play some spooky music white boy”, “my eye was getting ripped out by spangle and you just ignored me” “sorry I was on facebook”, Phil leaves and keeps trying to scare Dan (it’s cute), too many scary stories results him going into the lounge where Phil is for comfort. 

Phan liveshow moments

Work Me Over  51k   The only luck Louis has ever believed in is the luck that comes from working. He’s never really believed in love, either. In this world, if something is too good to be true, it’s because it’s a con.

don’t tell the gods (we left a mess)  71k **  After a misunderstanding with Liam’s mother, Louis agrees to accompany his best friend to a family wedding and pretend to be the world’s best boyfriend. But their simple plan goes awry when he learns that Harry, ex-boyfriend/ex-love of Louis’ life, will also be in attendance. (aka: fake!boyfriends with a twist ft. bromance, romance and cake.)

bring out feelings in me i never show   24k   Louis accidentally hires a felon to be his fake boyfriend for Thanksgiving. Or, the fake boyfriends au no one asked for

Escapade  146k ****  In the grand scheme of things, finding a date for a wedding should be no problem for Louis Tomlinson. He’s rich. He’s handsome. He’s reasonably well behaved.

Sorry, do you mind holding this for a minute? I don’t really have any place to keep it and it’s kind of a hassle, getting out of these things. Don’t want it to fall in.”He indicates his legs with the hand clutching a pale pink phone, and Louis’ gaze drops. Speechless, Louis takes the phone, eyes locked on the guy’s legs.

Louis drags his eyes up, meets Harry’s gaze, fixed on him.Then the noise is back, shouting voices clamoring to be heard over each other, and Harry is still staring at him.The ring that Louis hadn’t been able to stop noticing in the loo weighs heavily on his hand. His left hand.
