What struck me most about this episode is how Jughead and Betty are both so stressed and messed up and troubled - he because of his dad and Keller suspecting him, she because of Polly and her parents YET, YET notice the dizzy smile that Betty gives when she talks to Ronnie about Jughead and notice how Jughead’s entire face lights up when Betty kisses him! They are the only ones that can make each other smile even when shit is hitting the fan. They are each other’s HoPe and HoMe and I dare you to tell me otherwise!
“kidney function is not a right, it’s a privilege”
“WOULD U STOP SAYING THAT. IT’S BEEN YEARS, GET OVER IT!”
intense teasing that would go both ways
rap battles ft. judge seungkwan
who always declared u the winner, just to annoy hansol
vernon switching to english to sweet talk you if the boys are around
“eww, hansol, that’s gross”
“oh, joshua, didn’t realize you were here. sorry, dude”
all of which smell like him
he tries to be artsy & send you pics of the places he’s touring or doing a fan sign at
but it’s usually photobombed by the guys
so you ring him like “why did you send me a blurry photo of minghao flexing next to a tree?”
“it’s called art, babe, look it up”
he calls you “babe”
and melts when you call him “babe” back
he’s too shy to do skinship around the boys so only when you’re in private, in his bedroom, will he brave a quick peck to your lips
only to hear seungkwan over dramatically make puke noises by the door
and see jun wink obnoxiously behind him
jeonghan makes you both keep the door open when u visit & go to his bedroom
“for safety reasons” he says
whenever you’re in his room tho it’s 99% of the time just for video game sessions
that end in one of you being bitter & giving the other silent treatment
sending each other memes
texting at 2 am became you’re still up, binge watching some show, & he’s just getting back to the dorm after practice;
“hey, wanna get ice cream?”
so in sweats & bare faced, the both of you wander around looking for 24 hour shops. you buy the worst kind of food, which is mainly just junk. but you force him to get something substantial too since he’s been dancing for hours. so he picks up a soggy sandwhich, & if you’re happy w that, he also gets ice cream, crisps & fizzy drinks
the healthiest of diets
being that couple that show up to christmas parties in matching shitty sweaters & santa hats
for ironic purposes, of course
not just bc you both feel festive as hell in that outfit
getting into group photos & refusing to smile
papa coups hates this very much :)
“why can’t you both just smile? why do you have to ruin every family photo ever?”
doing the “hotline bling” dance whenever you’re in the club, & the song is not even playing. you both wait for something like “anaconda” to come on then hotline bling dance in the middle of the dance floor
he’s picked up alcohol occasionally & you both hide out in his room, feeling bad ass & getitng more drunk off of each other than the can you’re sharing
better hope the others don’t find out though
you gonna be in big trouble if they do
makeout sessions that are mostly you two giggling or bumping noses
tumblr deep conversations while cuddling at 3 am;
“do you think the ugly duckling still felt ugly, even when he became a beautiful swan?”
“go to sleep, hansol, it’s too early for this shit”
he’s young & spent his youth as a trainee, so I don’t think that the relationship would be all that mature or experienced. it’s your typical puppy love. with awkward moments and shy kisses and the occasional petty fight. but it’s wonderful. for all his dumb moments, vernon cares so much for you & works very hard to show that, in his own, awkward way
bellarke + 'I originally followed you on Instagram bc you’re hot and I’m thirsty but now I’ve developed actual feelings for you bc you’re a genuinely good person’ HAPPY FUTURE HOLIDAYS!!! and thanks 🙈
Clarke’s original reasons for following Octavia’s brother were far from pure, but she thinks it would be hard for anyone to figure that out. After all, she found out about his Instagram because Octavia posted a picture of the two of them with the caption: Finally got my dork brother on Instagram (and in Boston!!), everyone follow @theblakemistake.
If anyone asked, she was just following orders. It was not at all that he was really, really hot. No one could prove otherwise.
Especially when she keeps following him through the rocky first weeks of his Instagramming. Given how Bellamy Blake looked–broad shoulders, tan skin, toothpaste-commercial smile, artfully mussed hair, topped off with a pair of black hipster frames and a generous sprinkling of freckles–she assumed Octavia’s descriptor of “my dork brother” was just a little sister teasing.
But Bellamy’s inaugural Instagram post is a picture of a plant Clarke can’t identify with a truly dorky caption:
Things @octaviathefirst (am I doing that right) made me get today:
1. Instagram account 2. Plant
I figure I might as well use the first to monitor the second and see which one dies first.
And then he actually lists information about the plant. Like how many leaves it has and its color and the dampness of the soil. It is not at all what Clarke was expecting, but she finds herself actually kind of looking forward to his daily plant updates. His captions are fun, and he is really worried about his ability to keep the thing alive, which is really endearing.
After a week and a half of that, he finally posts another picture of himself, wearing pajamas and holding an orange kitten. Which is exactly the content Clarke was looking for. That’s what she’s about.
So, it’s come to my attention (s/o to @octaviathefirst) that I’m “doing it wrong” and just posting pictures of my plant is “boring and sad.” So I guess people on Instagram like cats? That’s what I’m getting. Anyway, this is Hermes, he’s an asshole.
Warnings: a fight breaks out, descriptions are pretty vague
You’d been friends with the Hamilsquad for a little over a year.
You had disliked all of them except for Alex at first.
You and Alex shared some similar traits. You both were hardworking and studious. In fact, these shared traits was how you met each other in the first place.
It was the week before finals week and you both had wanted to get a jump start on studying.
You had lugged several textbooks and an entire semesters worth of notes through the doorway and quickly made your way to the nearest desk.
Several hours later, paper and textbooks were all over the table. Highlighter temporarily stained your hand, pink, blue, yellow, green.
You had an ink smudge under your eye from when you had wiped away a few tears that had formed from frustration and not realized you had ink all over your fingers.
Yawning, you had glanced up to see someone a few tables away, looking just as stressed as you felt. The man was frantically writing as much as he could, occasionally glancing up toward the clock, before picking up the pace of his writing.
He only stopped writing when the librarian came over to tell you that he was shutting the library down until 4:00 am as per the usual hours.
The man sitting at the table sighed and gathered all the ink stained pages he had been working on.
Meanwhile, you had frantically stuffed everything back into your tattered backpack that could no longer be worn on your back.
Pulling it up into your arms, you nodded to the librarian and he walked you and paper guy out of the library and then locked the door behind you.
Paper guy turned to talk to you as soon as he stepped foot outside. “Hi, I’m Alexander Hamilton and I’m studying to be a lawyer. I’d shake hands with you but I don’t think that’s a good idea at the moment.” He nodded toward the bookbag in your hands and you laughed, nodding.
“I’m Y/N L/N and I’m studying to be a (insert field of study here). I agree with you on the handshake thing. Maybe some other time?”
Alex laughed at that and responded, “sure! I’ll be here until the end of finals week. I’m sure we’ll run into each other soon.”
Sure enough, the next day you saw each other again. You had been at the library for about half an hour when Alex had walked up to your table and cleared his throat. When you glanced up, you saw that he had extended his hand out toward you, and you raised your hand to his. A short firm handshake followed and upon releasing hands, he walked over to a desk and you got back to work.
For the rest of the week, it was mainly just you and him, the library quiet and as peaceful as it could be when you are trying to study.
During finals week however, the library became quiet chaos. Tons of people also decided the library was a good place to study and once they ran out of tables and study rooms, people began to sit on the floor and study there.
Somehow, halfway through finals week, you and Alex managed to snag two tables right next to each other.
You noticed that Alex looked more and more exhausted as finals week progressed and the bags under his eyes grew more pronounced. You knew that the librarian often kicked you both out at 2:00 am but you weren’t aware that he would be back when the library opened at 4:00 am to study more.
Apparently you weren’t the only one who noticed, as Alex’s friends seemed to be nonstop texting him, concerned.
Eventually he turned his phone off and put it into his pocket.
Twenty minutes later, the rest of the Hamilsquad entered the library and set off on a determined path to get to Alex.
It was sort of funny, watching this group of guys weaving around people, people angrily snapping at them when they stepped on their notes.
They were about halfway across the library when you realized they must have been the people texting Alex. Out of the corner of your mouth, you told Alex to look up. He did and his eyes widened slightly. His eyes flicked around the room, trying to find other exit but finding none.
Sighing in defeat, he slouched more in his chair.
A few seconds later, the group arrived at his table. And that was the the quiet chaotic atmosphere changed to a loud atmosphere full of energy.
Alex had barely started talking to them when they all started talking loudly at once, saying that he needed more sleep and that they were going to make sure he got it.
Soon Alex was ushered out the door by a guy in a beanie and a guy with a French accent.
A guy with freckles gathered up all of Alex’s stuff and jogged away from the table to check up with his friends.
That small disruption caused a large disruption for others.
Someone stood up from the table, slamming their hands on the desk. “That’s it! I’m done studying, I’m going to wing it!” The person grabbed their textbooks and started running for the door, stepping on papers and people alike.
People sitting on the floor stared at each other and then launched themselves toward the two open tables.
This started a fight, fueled by stress and frustration.
Eyes wide, you gathered your papers and quickly left, barely avoiding the scuffle in the middle of the room.
You trudged to your dorm room, muttering under your breath. If Alex’s friends hadn’t pulled him out of the room and made so much noise, you would still be sitting peacefully in the library, last minute cram studying.
The next time you saw Alex was the last day of finals week and he looked better than you had seen him before.
You hated to admit this but maybe it was a good thing that his friends had forced him to get some sleep. You shook your head at the thought, still angry at his friends for disrupting your studying.
You did wave at Alex though and he smiled widely as he waved back.
He jogged over and sat next to you on a bench in the quad. You discussed how finals went and what had happened after he was lead out of the library. He apologized for that and promised that his friends are normally better than that. To prove it, he said that he was hosting a movie night the next day and that you were invited.
You didn’t really want to see his friends but you did want to spend some time hanging out with Alex. You agreed and swapped phone numbers and he continued on to his class.
The next day, you went over to the dorm number that Alex said was his room about five minutes before you were supposed to show up.
You knocked on the door and held your breath, hoping one of his friends wouldn’t open the door.
Alex opened the door and you let out the breath you’d been holding. He led you to the kitchen where you spent a couple of minutes talking. He was just talking about what kind of snacks he had set out when another knocked sounded on his door.
He went over to open the door and you trailed slowly behind him.
Alex smiled at his friends and said, “guys, this is Y/N. I met them during finals week. ” Alex introduced his friends to you one by one. He pointed to beanie dude and said, “That’s Hercules, he’s my roommate. He wasn’t here earlier because he went to go pick up soda and find those two.” He pointed to the other two men, French accent dude and the guy with freckles.
“That’s Lafayette and he’s from France. And that’s John Laurens and he likes turtles and drawing, although he’ll only show you his art if he thinks you’re cool.”
John, who you mentally dubbed turtle guy, blushed at that and quickly asked if they could start the movie.
It started off awkward, you pointedly ignored the others and everyone avoided looking at you.
The awkwardness finally broke when Lafayette snorted at a funny line of dialogue, causing you to smile and the others to laugh.
After that, you all took turns commenting on certain sections of the movie and your anger toward them drifted away.
Once the movie was over, you explained why you had acted so rudely toward them.
They didn’t seem to take offense to it, laughing when Hercules shouted, “Oh no! You’re just like Alexander!”
You had smiled at that, smiling wider when you realized that you had almost effortlessly fit into their preexisting friend group. At that moment, you knew that you’d be lifelong friends with the Hamilsquad.
ok my faves are, skill wise, ong, god daniel, and honestly the rapper dude from A with beanie i think his name is sanhyung aka never got exposure except on episode 1. i like his force i wish i can vote. who are your faves?
