you really can’t trust Straights with knowing your sexuality cause the moment you mention you’re gay or bi or pan fucking Heterosexual Jimothy is interrogating you about your entire sexual history like he’s digging for wank bank fodder
You’re on the verge of sleep, just moments away from slipping into the euphoric slumber you’ve been craving since you woke up this morning, when your phone rings. Just like that, the tendrils of unconsciousness release their hold on your mind and disappear without any farewells or second glances. You groan angrily, both at yourself for not putting your phone on silent and at the person who’s chosen to call you this late at night. You want to ignore the call out of spite, but there’s no reason to. Sleep has evaded you and you’re officially wide-awake, again.
“Yes?” You say into the phone, having accepted the call without bothering to check the caller ID. You’re hoping that, if you keep your eyes closed, you’ll be able to trick your body into getting back to sleep.
“Did I wake you up?”
You don’t have to pull your phone away from your ear to identify the caller. You heard this voice only a couple of hours ago. But at that time, it wasn’t swimming in remorse like it is now. “Bucky?”
It’s like, I could see Rose wearing a tight black dress and vamp red lipstick gyrating suggestively in a dimly lit club with her hair falling in her face…
But I can also see her hiding in the gymnasium in the middle of the night so that no one sees her in a leotard practicing her pirouettes…
And I can see her in a gown, gliding through a ballroom with all the grace and precision of a pro…
But I can also see her in a short, flowy dress and flower crown, smiling and laughing as she and Lissa twirl around to indie pop and folk music.
Basically, I am a firm believer that Rose Hathaway loves all forms of dance and Dimitri Belikov is completely entranced by it. That he sneaks out after her on the nights she practices ballet just to admire how graceful she is and how cute her feet look in pointe shoes, that he spends hours online hunting down the nearest place offering swing dance lessons for date night and takes weeks worth of lessons so that he can do a proper Viennese waltz with her on their wedding day without stepping on her feet.
Just give me Rose Hathaway dancing freely and Dimitri Belikov being unable and unwilling to tear his eyes away from her.
Request: Hi! Can I request a newt AU imagine where y/n(can her name be Selena) wasn’t really famous with her bff(Teresa and Brenda)in her school like her twin brother(Thomas)she was into books, drawings and music. She liked sport(she was GREAT at it and Thomas was telling her that a lot cause they two were always practicing together at basketball[Thomas was in their school basketball team] at their garden at their free time) and one day their teacher told Selena that if she want to torture Newt at some lessons if he wanted to pass this semester and she said that it was fine with her but Newt was a little “bad boy"and he never showed up at their “lessons date"and one day at basketball practice she showed up and told him that if he doesnt show up at their next lesson date she is gona make sure that he isnt gona play at the next game. And at the afternoon she played basketball with Newt Thomas and Teresa and the girls won and the boys were like we let you win and really fluff?💟 ~ Anonymous
thank you so much for your request ^^ i hope this is what you wanted :)
A/N: I know it’s a day late, but to my defense: i was in school until 4 pm yesterday and then i had to eat and do my homework and at 6 pm i visited to play of our’s schools drama group because some of my friends were in it,so i had like no time :/
“Is this really necessary?”, whined Thomas, my twin brother, and trotted grumpily after me through the hallway, pulling a face as if the world was about to end.
“Yes. And by the way, this was your idea.” I stopped at my locker, pulled out a few books and waited for Thomas to take them.
Ignoring his scowl, i made my way over to my best friends Teresa and Brenda, hugged them and placed myself next to Brenda on the bench, waiting for Thomas to hand my books and my bag over.
He let it fall into my lap, before he left in the direction of his friends, or in other words, the basketball team of our high school and the most popular boys here. Don’t ask me why.
Teresa chuckled lightly as she watched Thomas walking away, now way more enthusiastic than before.
“Let me take a guess: he lost again?”
“He lost? More like i destroyed him”, i smirked and searched in my bag for my homework for the first class, “sometimes i wonder why this kid is even in the basketball team. But yes, he lost again, and now he has to carry my things the whole day, whereever i want it.”
“ You should really consider joining the basketball team, Selena”, Brenda called in, “i mean,we all know Thomas is good, maybe even the best, otherwise he wouldn’t be the team captain. And if you’re better than him…”
I shrugged. “Maybe, but i don’t want to. I love basketball, but being in the team, especially as the only girl, would draw way too much attention on myself. I prefer it how it is, only we three alone, and me occasionally playing basketball with Thomas. Anyway, i have to go to class now. See you later.”
They waved at me and then i strolled over to my lovely brother, who seemed to be rather annoyed by my appearance.
“Hey brother, i need someone to carry my bag to the next class”, i said sweetly, while handing him my bag.
“Seriously? Your next class is literally just 20 metres away?!”
“Not my problem. You should just have played better yesterday, now come on, i don’t want to be late”, i provoced him and he snatched my bag from my hand, muttering something like “I hate you” under his breath and practically ran over to my classroom, where he dropped my bag in front of the door.
I followed him slowlier and picked up my bag before walking to my seat in the middle of the room. After i put my things on the table, i sat down and pulled out my mobile to brigde the time until the teacher arrived.
During the lesson i watched my classmates, because i didn’t really needed to pay attention, this subject was pretty easy for me. I could answer every question the teacher had easily, unlike most of the students, who were just staring out of the window or sleeping on their tables.
I scribbled little doodles in the corner of my worksheet, when the teacher suddenly raised his voice. “Mister Newton, i would be delighted if you could at least pretend to pay attention to my lesson, instead of sleeping on your table. And it would also be of advantage if you would take some notes. Otherwise you may have to repeat this class,and i’m sure you don’t want that.”
I turned my head to the back of the class, where Isaac Newton or Newt, how everybody called him, sat, looking rather dazed, as if he had just woke up. He rolled his eyes and answered boredly: “Yes, sir.”, before he yawned and closed his eyes again.
I couldn’t understand how someone could care so less about their grades, especially because i knew Newt was pretty passionate about basketball and if he had to repeat the class, he would lost his place in the team.
After class, the teacher stopped my before i could get out of the room and when Newt wanted to scuff past me to leave the teacher stopped him too.
“Miss Y/L/N, i know your pretty good in this subject and if Mister Newton doesn’t want to repeat this class, he’ll need some tutoring. It would be nice if you could help him a little bit.”
I looked over to Newt, who seemed bored by the whole conversation. I had met him briefly a few times when he was playing basketball with Thomas at our place, since they were pretty much best friends and he seemed nice, but i didn’t really knew him well.
“If he’s ok with it?”
The teacher looked at Newt who shrugged.
“Great. There’s a big test in four weeks and i hope to see good results. You’re excused.”
We left the room together and i asked: “We could meet in the library after school today. Is that ok for you?”
He shrugged again. “To be honest, i don’t really care about this subject. And i have basket ball practice after school.”
I raised my eyebrows and smiled. “But this is more important, when you want to keep your place in the team. And i know that you have practice not until 4 pm. Don’t forget, my brother is in the team too. See you later in the library!”
▪ ▪ ▪
A few days later i sat in the library and when Newt didn’t appear after a couple of minutes, i was furious. This was the third time i waited for him here and he didn’t showed up, he didn’t even excused himself. He had just let me sitting here, wasting three days and i would take drastic actions now.
I shoved my textbook in my bag and stomped angrily out of the library, ignoring the dirty look the librian gave me for disrupting the silence in the room. I had more important things to deal with.
Checking the watch, i smiled deviously. In half an hour, the basketball practice would start and Newt would be there, so it was easy for me to catch him before and teach him in the most friendly way possible to better take me seriously next time.
I sat on a bench next to the parking lot, waiting for Thomas’ car to arrive, because i knew he picked up Newt before practice everytime and when i finally spotted his car, i got and slowy walked over.
He and Newt got out of the car, chatting and laughing, and when they saw me, their happy expression turned into a confused one.
“What are you doing here, Selena?”, Thomas asked while he got his and Newt’s gym bags out of the boot.
“Oh, i just want to talk to Newt”,i smiled and turned to Newt a frown, “Why didn’t you show up to our study sessions? I wasted three days because of you!”
He smirked at me. “Guess what? I don’t care. I don’t need any tutoring, and especially not by someone like you.”
“ Excuse me!? What means ‘someone like me’, am i not good enough for you? But guess what? I don’t care either. If you don’t show up tomorrow after school, i will make sure that you’ll lose your place in the team. And believe me, i’m serious.”
With that, i turned around and truged away, boiling with rage. Who does he think he is? Only because he’s in the basketball team, popular and most of the girls at our school are drooling over him, doesn’t mean he has a right to say something like that.
When i got home, i texted Teresa to come over and when she arrived we sat in my room on my bed and she just listened to me becoming exasperated with Newt and his aroggant attitude towards me.
“He literally said ’ I don’t need any tutoring, and especially not by someone like you’, can you believe this?! How terrible can a person be?”
Teresa smiled knowingly. “Are you sure that he is really that terrible? You two would make a cute couple, don’t you think?”
I choked. “What? Are you serious? He is a annyoing, arrogant prat and we certainly would not make a cute couple!”
Before she could answer, someone knocked at the door, then Thomas sticked his head in the door and asked: “Selena, would you like to play a match against Newt and me? Oh, hi Teresa. Do want to play against us too? You could make a team.”
I looked at Teresa and she nodded so we got up and followed Thomas down to the backyard, where Newt was already waiting.
I had to admit he looked good, still in his basketball tricot and his hair slightly tousled, but his cocky grin made me already getting angry again. I hoped Thomas didn’t tell him how good i was, so he was now in for a surprise.
Thomas got the ball and explained: “Ok, we’re playing girls against boys, and whoever scores five points first, wins.”
Before we could start the game, Newt called in: “Is this even fair? I mean, we can’t expect two girls winning against us.”
I scoffed and Thomas said: “You’ve never seen my sister play basketball, haven’t you? She’s even better than me, believe me it won’t be easy to win.”
Newt looked at me and arched his eyebrows, obviously not believing Thomas, but i was determined to show him how good i was.
No one except of Newt was really surprised that we won. It had been almost too easy, because Newt had totally underestimated my basketball skills. And by the time he had actually started to play and tried to win against me i had already made four points for the girls team and the last point wasn’t really difficult to score either.
He looked pretty impressed, but he said with a cheeky grin: “Of course we let you win. There’s know way you would have won if this was an actual game.” I raised both eyebrows.
“Sure. Just make sure you’re not forgetting our study session tomorrow. I think you want to keep your place in the team, especially because you definitely need to practice a bit before you could play an actual game against me.”
He smiled wider and layed an arm around my shoulder while we were walking towards the house, where Thomas and Teresa sat in the kitchen.
“Of course i’m not forgetting this. I’m looking forward to our little study date.” I almsot choked and felt heat rising to my cheeks. “Date? Really? A few hours ago you thought i was a nerd and not good enough for you.”
He chuckled. “You are a nerd. But i cute one, and i definitely underestimated your basketball skills, so i think we’ll have a lot of fun together.”
1. It’s okay to lose friends. Not everyone needs to be in your life, the people who stayed truly care about you.
2. NEVER change your lifestyle for someone else whether it’s your boyfriend/girlfriend or someone you care about. If they care for you they wouldn’t need you to change.
3. Owning a diary is the best choice to make. It doesn’t have to be a daily thing just once a week, writing it all down takes the stress off you.
4. Wake up early on a weekend. Go for a run, watch a movie on tv, or do some yoga whichever is more pleasing. The solitude is beyond peaceful and helps with collecting thoughts.
5. Being single is O.K. And being in a relationship is O.K. Don’t conform for anyone and stick with what makes you comfortable. But it’s NOT O.K. to force your opinion of this on others.
6. Sometimes you do need a break from your friends. No, this doesn’t make you a bad friend and you aren’t betraying them it’s just that sometimes being around others for a long period of time can be overwhelming. So take a day or even a week of “avoiding” your friends because those are the times where you can honestly collect your thoughts and be yourself.
7. It’s totally fine to spill some of your secrets to people you’re not entirely close with. Go ahead and tell the girl you have only gotten close to this year about the guy you’re head over heels with because there are some secrets that belong to your best friends while others belong to your platonic friendships. It may not make sense now but one day it will.
8. That boy that is now giving you the time of his day isn’t as important as he should be for you. More likely than not he is simply using you as a distraction so don’t get too caught up in him. I’m not saying you have to drop him entirely I just highly suggest you keep your distance and don’t fall into his arms quickly.
9. Spend quality time with your best friends. Head to IHOP after school or head to the museum on a Saturday morning. Do things that you all will enjoy and do them with positive vibes. Because these are the “wonder years” and yes taking a break from your friends can be helpful but they shouldn’t be constant. So go out to that restaurant you guys have claimed but never went inside and take as many pictures as you want so a few years from now you’ll remember how much fun you and your friends had.
10. ALWAYS remember that you as a human being matter. You matter entirely. You may be a small person in this big world but you play a huge role in the lives of those around you and as cliche as that sounds it’s true. Don’t ever let the negative vibes bring you down. Please stay positive for everyone and most importantly, yourself. And if you haven’t heard this in awhile, I love you and think you matter a whole lot.
