dyed water

So that post going around about frustrating stuff in the original Animal Crossing is great but can we just talk about how frustrating Wild World was for a moment?

  • This game introduced a lot of features that are now staples of the series (emotes, hairstyles, etc)… but made them needlessly difficult and complicated to get
  • You couldn’t change your hair at all until you got the final Nook upgrade with Shampoodle built in, which required you to have a friend who also had the game to come and shop at your Nook’s store. Your only other option was to have a friend who already had the final upgrade and just use their Shampoodle. And some of the default hairstyles are… questionable at best…
  • Did I mention that since wifi services are shut down for the original DS, it’s now by extension impossible to change your hair at all if you don’t have Shampoodle already? Hope you had a style you liked when you last played!
  • Shrunk was a random special visitor instead of something you could do daily. Changed your mind about one of your emotes? You had to wait indefinitely for him to show up.
  • There was no way to tell if you watered your dying flowers. So you watered one pixel too far to the left? your hybrid garden is gone now.
  • Seriously you’ll never truly appreciate the beautiful town ordinance in New Leaf until you’ve gone through this for YEARS playing WW
  • Villagers would give zero warning if they were moving out, a random villager would just already be in boxes every 1-2 days and it could take anywhere between five minutes and one hour or more to talk some of them out of it
  • Good luck making money in spring, fall, or winter, at least the original Animal Crossing had the island
  • There was no grass wear, but your town was straight up 75% dirt instead
  • There was a widespread and infamous glitch where you’d sometimes never be able to get snooty villagers’ pics because they’d randomly bring up dialogue that would imply they already gave it to you, which would lock you out of EVER getting it
  • Art was extremely hard to get in this game, and you had NO way of telling if it was fake
  • There was a flea market holiday where every villager in your town would randomly barge into your house and try to buy all your stuff
  • Heck, there was no halloween, toy day, or any holiday of note in this game, just weird oddball ones that didn’t have to do with anything
  • Also logging on in the fall meant your town would be absolute acorn hell thanks to one of these holidays
  • If you’ve played WW for as long as I have you understand why the hammer tour in New Leaf is so goddamned satisfying
  • This game introduced putting patterns on the ground, but had it so guests to your town could accidentally remove them
  • Almost every song on the OST was punctuated by fart-y tuba noises
  • The Boondocks
  • Lyle

Why are Altean pools upside down? What is the benefit of this? How does one dive in an Altean pool without dying? Does all water float at the top of caves in Altea? Are these pools relevant to a commonly faced problem that requires practice in an upside down pool? Or is it just for the novelty of ones blood rushing to their head, confusion as to which way is the surface and the added excitement of a possibly very messy end. Do Altean pool cleaning duties include removing the bodies and scrubbing the floor (roof?) of the entrails, brain fluid and blood of the most recent person who swam too far down (up?) I am so confused.

Hate to Love - Larry Stylinson Fic Rec

Harry is the world’s most persistent seduction-baker, a questionable dog-sitter, and Louis’s biggest fan. Louis hasn’t written in years, is trying to pass loneliness off as cynicism, and absolutely hates his fans. It’s probably destiny.

Becoming a best-selling author isn’t as difficult as Louis would have guessed. It seems all you need these days is the perfect blend of alcohol induced philosophy, complete disregard for one’s dignity, a live blog about how fucked love is, and a bored publisher interested enough to offer him a deal.

AU where Louis Tomlinson attends the vigorous, demanding performing arts school: Guildhall in hopes to complete his theatre degree. He is a scholarship student, always having to work twice as hard to prove his worth which has caused him to feel resentment and anger towards his subordinate position.

Harry Styles is the wealthy, naturally gifted actor who effortlessly snatches all the main roles within the class. The complete contrast to everything Louis is.

Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles have had bad blood and despised each other for the two years they attended Guildhall together, making each task a competition between each other.

In the final year, when Guildhall produces and performs an original play, Louis is heartbroken to learn the lead role has been been received to Harry and he’s the second role. He’s mostly terrified, however, when he realises he has to date Harry in the play as their characters. They come together through awkward stage kisses that transforms to hate sex, heated arguments, rehearsal times after lectures and baking carrot cake together.

“I am right here,” she says loudly, and she can almost hear the crack when Louis’ head whips around to stare at her.

Why?” Louis asks, and Harry feels her insides shrivel up and die.

Harry didn’t plan to join the football team. She didn’t plan to sleep with the captain of the football team. She definitely didn’t plan to sleep with the closeted captain of the football team, who promptly acted as if nothing happened and left Harry a pathetic, pining mess.

“What the fuck did you do to my shampoo?” Harry shouts, brandishing the offending bottle like it’s a vial of poison. “Is this fucking mud? Did you honestly replace my shampoo with mud?”

“Not just your shampoo,” Louis says calmly, then cracks up when Harry visibly pales.

Harry and Louis are camp counsellors. They hate each other. The amount of sex they have in the camp showers probably contradicts that.

pairing: lin manuel miranda x reader

word count: 7,500+

genre: angst (i said it was fluff. i lied.)

summary: lin is putting so much effort into hamilton and you feel like he’s not putting enough into your relationship.

a/n: hahaha, i’m back bitches. hope you enjoy this fic that i put too much time into and will probably still be crap the ending isn’t quite how i wanted it to be but oh well ill make edits tomorrow if i need to or if i feel like i should. hope all the arguments and feelings make sense. okay love u all. ok bye


Sunday. 10:59 pm.

It all started because Lin was late.

And he was never, ever late.

Well, that wasn’t completely accurate. When streets were crowded, or bars were rowdy, or he was just in one of his writing zones that he couldn’t be pulled out of no matter what, then, and only then, he was late. But tonight was a normal night - well, not normal, but a night when he should’ve showed up to your apartment hours sooner, because he hadn’t seen you since Thursday and you thought he would have missed you. And you were not only surprised, but disappointed. Underneath one of his sweatshirts was a new pair of fancy underwear you had been dying to test the waters with. (Lin was particular about underwear. There were some things he liked, some things he didn’t, and some things that only truly hypnotized him the next morning, when he was sleepy and lazy about the whole ordeal, but still entranced enough to try – and maybe that made it feel a bit more special.) Now they felt like you had struggled to pull them on for nothing.

Not that you were complaining, of course. With a partner as kind and as wonderful, and not mention as brilliant and as gifted, as Lin, of course he was going to have a busy schedule with a lot of different people to meet, greet and charm (which Lin was undeniably good at). You were thankful every day that he had so many things to do and so many ideas to act upon, and that wasn’t just drunkenly sitting in his apartment and twiddling his thumbs all day like your last boyfriend. And, not to mention, you loved to brag about him to your family and your friends back home. (And you weren’t sorry if they felt jealous, because yes, you and Lin had built an amazing life together, and most people should be envious of your undying love and rising success.)

Still, with the few hours you could manage to snag him for per week… you felt like maybe you deserved a little more than three hours less and a cold dinner, untouched and frankly now unappealing on your dining room table.

You saw your phone light up on the coffee table and leaned over to snatch it up in your trembling fingers. (You hadn’t even noticed you were shaking. How long had you been? And was it with anger or fear?) A text from Lin had popped up under the clock, which now read: 11:06 pm.

Four hours late.

Lin

On my way.

Ouch. Not even a ‘love you’? Not even any x’s and o’s? Not even an exclamation point?

That was a dead giveaway that something… was wrong.

So, I don’t know how many people picked up on the symbolic meaning behind Luna drowning Roan and how that scene ties to her own drowning scene in 3x14, but there is an important connection I’d like to point out.

Here is the thing, repetition carries weight, as you know, because when you see a certain type of scene play out more than once, there’s a connection between them formed by association. The connection I’m about to make isn’t strictly between the scenes though, but how they affect Luna as a character.

When Luna experiences the big threat on her rig in 3x14, we witness the fighter she was trained to be (the night blood who fled her conclave) unleashed for the first time. Notably, we also come to see that during the entire torture procedure Luna is not only exposed to the threat of ALIE destroying her peaceful world alone, but also brings forth the killer Luna thought she sealed away.

She starts to come face to face with that issue when one of her own people (chipped) forcibly holds her down, brings ALIE’s chip close to her mouth and tells her to take it - to which she shockingly reacts “What’s happened to you?!”.

It’s Jasper, who is tied up close to her, who tells Luna that the chip is the one thing that makes her friend commit violence against her, a brutal reality Luna never thought she would relive - especially not here - but is exposed to nonetheless. Not only that, but she’s faced with the one thing she never wanted to do again - fight. It’s a realization for her as much as it acts like a new wound in her heart, because Luna is slowly coming to lose the peaceful armor that is coating her body, and forced to embrace the darkness she so desperately wanted to escape. The interplay between how the chip is there to take the pain away and how Luna eventually ends up doing the most painful thing is therefore horrible as it is supposed to represent the catalyst, but doesn’t end up being the thing that breaks her demeanor - Luna breaks by fighting back.

When her peaceful armor comes off completely and is replaced by a skin that carries pure instinct, it’s not because of her boyfriend (who has taken the chip himself for her), but for a little girl - Adria - whom ALIE threatens to kill. So, the torture in itself and the fact that Adria is in danger - two things that break down Luna’s choices - are the reasons why she surrenders and gives in to fighting.

In that way, we don’t only experience what Luna looks like as a fighter, but what her entire traumatic backstory has been - she trained, she struggled and she fled only to end up in a position in which she’d hurt and get hurt again.

In less than seconds we see the night blood take down four of her own people. And by doing so, she comes to a close understanding of her victims humanity by looking it right in the face… yet again. Luna’s hands are dirty, she’s never had the chance to have it otherwise, with guilt always rippling through her body, because this is exactly what she looked like when she killed her own brother.

The transition from the past to the present and even future is crazy, because this image is exactly what she will look like in 4x10 - all soaked up and lethal and fearless. Only this time the game will have completely changed, as Luna is not forced to embrace the darkness anymore, but literally chooses to do so.

When Luna breaks for a second time, it’s because she has no one left, because she’s a person defined only by her blood “your blood can save us”, a tool who’s supposed to keep people alive that she considers cruel to their core.

You know, it’s revelatory for her to acknowledge that she can’t bear to think about humanity anymore, considering everything that has happened to her and her loved ones, and that her only escape is to surrender to the sense of touch that makes her both powerful and weak, mixed with the rightful anger towards the people who literally used her - I fully am against what happened to Luna in the last episode (most of all how her choices/death were portrayed - I literally despise these aspects), but her turn in itself is understandable.

So, In 4x10 she happens to be both - Sealed away and fully there.

Black rain creates an image to her state of mind and the one thing that sets her apart, because 1. it represents the skin that she unleashed during ALIE’s presence on the rig; only this time she uses it to fight for death (for all mankind no less) and 2. for once, she is actually protected by something stronger than her own skin, the one thing she thought a curse - her blood.

‘Cause here is the thing: Echo was wrong. Luna does not bleed like everyone else. Not even slightly. Even if her blood has lost significance within their own culture, she is the only one (besides Clarke I guess) who’s able to walk through black rain without dying - the water in which her fight with Roan takes place.

Black rain is literally the testament of Luna’s being here. She’s a nightblood.

And she drowns Roan in it - ‘Honoring’ him with her last words not because he was good to her, but because - to her - he and mankind don’t deserve better.

From where she is standing she’s got nothing to lose “They are all gone”. In other words, she deserved to survive, be saved and see the change.

Nebula “New Beginnings” Jar Spell

(This spell was originally posted on my old blog, ofseastormandspace)

Nebulae are new beginnings, they are remnants of old stars, and are where thousands of new stars form. This spell will help you begin anew, like a star. I preformed this spell on a new moon.

Ingredients:
-Clear glass jar (make sure it is clean!)
-cotton balls
-water
-glitter (optional)
-food coloring (any color you want!)
-sigils for traits that you want, and paper to write the sigils on (I used sigils for happiness and self-confidence. I also charged the sigils beforehand)

1. Write your first sigil on a slip of paper, and put it on the bottom of the jar
2. Fill the jar less than halfway with water
3. Add in some food coloring, and gently stir with a spoon or straw (try to keep the sigil on the bottom)
4. Add in cotton balls (enough to completely soak up the dyed water) Feel free to add in some glitter and another piece of paper with a sigil on it
5. Add more cotton balls, and then add in some dyed water (prepared in another container) Time to add more glitter and another sigil!
6. Repeat step 5 until you have as many layers as you want!

Now you have a Nebula “New Beginnings” Jar! While I was making mine, I chanted about what I wanted (happiness/self-confidence), but you can do your own thing.

I found a love for me

The first time Kim had spotted Trini, her breath had caught against the back of her throat. 

Her lungs had ached, her chest had shuddered; Her knees had weakened, her fingertips had tingled. Her heart had stuttered harshly against the spot it was usually beating so steadily against.

She stopped short in her tracks, and when the other girl’s eyes met hers, everything suddenly felt so still and so fast in one single, simultaneous second.

They both blinked. 

A few moments passed, and something fluttered within Kim’s stomach, but then the other girl glanced away; The moment was over.

That fluttering feeling evaporated, to allow a disheartening and sinking one to take its place, and Kim had to try really hard not to focus on it while the other new guy–newer guy; Zack–yelled out something about seeing this enchanting girl around in the mornings. 

Her ears were too busy ringing to hear what was said in reply, but her attention became acutely focused once more as the rock right under this new girl’s feet crumbled.

And when Kim fell too, all she could think of was how horribly the girl’s scream sounded as it echoed off of the stone surrounding them, and when she sat back up, all she could feel was the immense and almost sickening wave of relief that washed over her when she saw that said girl was okay.

Her hands shook as they all stood together; As they all inspected the strange, black glass that had been exposed; As they all inspected the strange, colored coins they’d found and argued over what to do with them. Her hands shook, and she felt as if her skin, her nerves, were vibrating, purely from the close proximity she and the shorter girl were stood in; She felt lightheaded. 

But suddenly another sound, that differed from the constant one of her erratic pulse, filled her ears and caught her attention. 

“Guys!” she said, effectively cutting off the boys’ bickering. “Do you hear that?”

“Mine security,” Zack muttered; They were screwed. 

“Someone should’ve pointed that out,” Pretty Girl ™ retorted sarcastically, just to rub it in. “Wait. I did.”

And then she started to run away, with the motivation of their impending arrest, and Kim could do nothing to stop her legs from following; The gravitational pull that this literal stranger had on her was already too strong, too immediate, to fight against or understand. 

So, Kim chased after her, partly because of her own survival instinct, partly because of the strange and strong need to ensure the other girl’s survival. 

“Up there!” she had said breathlessly as she made a little more headway, pointing to the speeding van just out of their trajectory. 

Pretty Girl ™ nodded, and they both swerved to better meet the vehicle in its path.

Jason pulled them both in, and their heads popped up over the seats to watch as Billy drove them towards the train tracks. 

Once Zack was pulled in too, the five of them were merely racing against the clock, racing against a train, to make it out of the mine. 

“I hope he has it,” Pretty Girl ™ whispered, her eyes shut tightly and pleadingly.

Kim, in her own fear, forgot to reassure the other girl, and she instead said, “He definitely doesn’t have it.” 

“I’ve got it,” Billy insisted. “I’ve got it.” 

He didn’t have it.

The last thing Kim was aware of before the impact was a soft hand grabbing hold of hers and not letting go.

Darling just dive right in, and follow my lead

So, things were definitely different. 

They were all strong; They all had powers beyond comprehension.

They had survived being t-boned by a train, flipping several hundred feet. They had all scaled a mountain and jumped a ravine with relative ease and as little bloodshed as possible.

And now they were all jumping, willingly, into said ravine to see whatever it was that Billy had discovered when he fell down it–terrifyingly, might Kim add.

“Come on guys, let’s go!” Jason said to the two of them–she and Pretty Girl ™–just before hopping over the edge of the cliff and straightening his body out in preparation for his landing. 

Kim laughed breathlessly, and so did Pretty Girl ™, but as their eyes met, both of their smiles faded. 

The other girl started to walk away, and Kim panicked, so she found herself calling out near immediately, without much thought as to why–Even though she knew it was because she couldn’t bear the thought or reality of never seeing or talking to her again. 

“Hey, wait!” The girl turned slightly. “Can I, um–Can I get a sip of your water? I’m dying.” 

It was the best she could come up with on the spot, but it was an excuse that seemed to work as the other girl just rolled her eyes before walking closer again.

“Fine. Just don’t finish it.” 

Kim nodded.

Their fingertips brushed as the bottle was passed to her, and she swallowed a little thickly. 

“Thanks,” she replied. “And I’m sorry.” 

Delicate eyebrows furrowed over a confused and hazel stare.

“For what?”

Kim didn’t even answer verbally as she grabbed the front of the girl’s jacket and tugged her forward harshly before throwing all of her own weight backwards and off of the cliff. 

She shrieked loudly as the sensation of falling filled her stomach, and she let go of the other girl as they plummeted towards a body of water below.

Well I found a girl, beautiful and sweet

I never knew you were the someone waiting for me

Learning that they were Power Rangers, bound by their responsibility to save the universe, and connected through the morphing grid, was a revelation that shook Kim to her core. 

Aren’t superheroes supposed to be good?  

What was she doing on this team? 

She didn’t belong here… 

She didn’t deserve to be with these people…

She didn’t deserve to be with Billy, who was talkative and intelligent, lovable and loving, selfless and soft where it counted. 

She didn’t deserve to be with Zack, who just wished to be able to protect his mom; Who transferred that wish to the entire population of the world.

She didn’t deserve to be with Jason, who was so used to leading teams, to taking the weight, his whole life; Who was angry and hurt and used those emotions for all of the wrong reasons until he was given the right one. 

She didn’t deserve to be with Trini… Who was brave and beautiful, inside and out; Who had fought all her life, to just be accepted by the people who so wished to shun her; Trini, who, despite her isolation, still had a beating, bleeding heart for humanity as a whole, for the people she let close enough to touch her.

Trini, who didn’t need labels, but was so used to being labeled. Trini, who was too good for all the bad she’d been through, and who was too good for all of the bad that Kim inherently was. 

Kim didn’t deserve to be with any of them, to have the privilege of fighting on the same team as them. But Kim was also selfish, and so she didn’t say anything as they all grew closer–As she and Trini grew closer.

As she and Trini went to Krispy Kreme after school, before training, every day. As she and Trini paired up for Biology lab work and sparring sessions. 

She didn’t say anything, because she couldn’t bring herself to lose something–someone–so special. 

Cause we were just kids when we fell in love

Not knowing what it was

The more time continued to pass, the more Kim longed, ached, to be with the other girl. The more time continued to pass, the harder it got to handle their interactions.

Their gazes started to linger for longer seconds. Their touches weren’t as fleeting–as accidental

Their concern wasn’t strictly professional, formal, courteous. 

They were becoming more intrigued, more invested

Kim cleaned Trini’s wounds after the more particularly grueling training sessions, and she walked her home every day. She sought her out in the halls, whenever she could; She made sure no one gave the other girl a hard time.

She tried, with all that she was, to be someone worthy of Trini’s time, and she tried to ignore the feeling of foreboding that hovered over her, as Rita’s imminent attack grew closer, more pressing. 

I will not give you up this time

It had been just a few hours since they’d all last hung out when Kim admitted to Jason in his room why they couldn’t morph, why she was undeserving of their friendship. 

It had been just a few minutes into their conversation when they both got the text from Trini to meet her at the football field. 

It had been with a heavy and sick sensation in her stomach that Kim got into Jason’s truck to meet the other rangers, and it had been with shaking legs that she ran into the empty stadium. 

“So, we’re all here. Where is she?”

Kim could hardly breathe.

“I’m right here,” Trini called, stopping at the top of the cement stairs and looking down at them with more emotion than Kim could ever recall seeing on her. “Look. Rita came to my house tonight.”

Kim really couldn’t breathe now. 

“What?” she heard one of the boys whisper; Zack took an instinctive step forward, but Kim couldn’t move a muscle. 

“Yeah,” Trini nodded. “She’s real.” She tugged down the collar of her shirt to reveal long, harsh, bleeding scratches on the side of her neck. “Real crazy.” 

Kim clenched her fists just as she clenched her jaw, an ugly feeling of anger bubbling within her hotly. 

Trini avoided her gaze, pointedly.

“She almost killed me. Told me that she would spare my life if I could keep a secret.”

Kim kind of zoned out of what was being said, only for a few seconds, as she tried to scan over Trini’s body to find any other less noticeable injuries–in the way the girl stood, shifted her weight, held herself up. 

Jason’s speech is what drew her attention back to the present, to their reality, and though his words were quite rousing, it wasn’t until Trini raised her hand to agree to his plan that Kim did too. 

After all, it was Trini that she would follow off of a cliff. 

But darling just kiss me slow

They got their asses handed to them. They got a reality check. 

They weren’t invincible; They could face loss, and it could be so devastating that the world lost all of its color. 

Regrets and guilt could still affect them and could still be present while they were in battle, meaning that they could still be present if one of them were to be struck down again; If one of them were to not come back. 

So, after Billy came back to them, after they morphed, after they fought the putties–the real, live ones–after they went to the cave to get their Zords, Kim grabbed Trini’s wrist with one of her own gloved hands.

The boys were already bursting through the side of the mountain, ready and rearing to go save the world, but all Kim could see in that moment was the confused glimmer in the other girl’s hazel eyes as her mask came up to reveal her face.

“Kim, what are you doing. We have to g–.”

Kim cut off Trini’s sentence with her lips. 

She poured all of the feeling she could convey into a kiss that could possibly be her last. 

Their lips slotted together in a way that was almost tauntingly perfect, and Trini’s were so soft, and warm, and like everything Kim could’ve ever imagined and more, that when she pulled away, her heart trembled from the aftershock of it all.

And then Trini’s eyes opened slowly, dazed and still as dazzling as ever. 

“Wh–.”

“I just wouldn’t have been able to die with myself knowing that I didn’t do that at least once.”

And then Kim had jogged to her Zord without allowing the other girl to even think of a response. 

After all, they had a universe to protect. 

Your heart is all I own

And in your eyes, you’re holding mine

They had defeated Rita; Not easily, but a win is a win, and their team was stronger because of it; They could all feel it.

The happiness Kim felt, the relief that she hadn’t died, that none of her fellow rangers had died, was what had kept her going as they made their way back to the ship, to tell Alpha and Zordon the good news.

She was too high on adrenaline to notice the throbbing pain in her forehead from where it had made harsh contact with the top of her helmet as the metal of her Zord was being crushed around her. She was too high on happiness to feel the warmth of the blood trickling down the side of her temple.

And when they all made it into the ship, they morphed back into their regular clothing, and they stood before Zordon and told him everything; The beginning to the end; From start to slap. 

Jason told of the beginning, Trini and Zack took turns with the middle bit, and Kim hung back some, watching on with a fond smile, as Billy animatedly told of his kick to Goldar’s midsection, towards the end. 

She blinked once and fought back the urge to yawn; The adrenaline was wearing off, exhaustion was setting in, deep and comfortable down in her bones. 

She blinked again, slower, more languid.

And then she swayed, suddenly, her blood loss finally catching up to her, finally catching her attention, and she stumbled slightly as her head became lighter, less grounded.

“Whoa,” she breathed out.

Trini and Jason’s attention moved back to her just as her eyes rolled back into her head.

“Kimberly!”

Baby, I’m dancing in the dark

The morphing grid accelerates their already accelerated healing; Their injuries never really have that much of a lasting impact; So Kim didn’t spend a very long amount of time in her unconscious state–maybe two hours, three, tops.  

When she woke up, she was still on the ship, in the med bay. 

A faint voice could be heard speaking in the hall, but other than that, everything was silent. 

For a few moments, she just lay there, staring at the metal grating of the ceiling, and, then, when she finally brought herself to sit up, she lifted a dirty hand to her forehead, to feel at where the skin was now healed over and smooth once more. 

She then tried to stretch her muscles by spreading her sore arms out wide and rolling her head back and forth to try to get the kinks out of her neck. Her skin was still littered with bruises and her entire body felt almost unbearably stiff, but she was still present, still breathing; She couldn’t bring herself to complain. 

“Oh,” came an exclamation, suddenly, from the med bay’s entrance. “You’re awake.”

Kim’s gaze snapped up to meet the one that she hadn’t noticed settle on her, and she felt her heart’s steady beating falter, stuttering and staggered. She stood up and then stared at the other girl, who was nearly stock still in her stance, a few feet away. 

A second passed, a quick heartbeat, and then Trini was walking towards her, purposefully, powerfully. Kim didn’t know what to expect, but when two rough hands shoved harshly at her shoulders, sending her stumbling backwards in surprise, she realized that it definitely wasn’t that.

Her eyes widened as she struggled to regain a sense of stability. 

“What the hell?”

“You’re such an asshole!” Trini shouted at her, hoarse and horribly pained.

The shorter girl pushed at Kim’s shoulders again, but since the pink ranger was more prepared, she didn’t stumble. 

“Trini, what are you–?”

“You can’t do that!” Trini cut her off, fiercely. “You can’t just–You can’t just kiss me, and then run off to save the world like it didn’t happen! You can’t kiss me, and then collapse after the battle!”

The yellow ranger’s hands came up again, but when they landed on Kim’s chest they were weak and harmless, allowing the taller girl to grab a hold of them. Trini let out a shuddering breath, that rattled through her heaving chest, and her eyes closed, as Kim raised her own hands to then frame the girl’s jaw.

A second of silence passed, and Trini spent it releasing a slow exhale of air through her nose; Kim waited patiently.

“You just completely collapsed,” she whispered after a moment, her eyelids sliding apart slowly to meet Kim’s stare. “Like the injury wasn’t even that bad, but you just crumpled to the ground, and you looked so pale and motionless; It was horrible.”

Kim frowned, and her thumbs began to stroke softly across the skin of Trini’s cheekbones, soothing and sincere.

“I’m sorry,” she said earnestly. “I promise, I wasn’t trying to be reckless. I just honestly didn’t even feel the injury through all of the adrenaline.”

Trini swallowed thickly, and she nodded slightly before bringing her hands up so that she could wrap her fingers around Kim’s wrists–an attempt to ground herself.

“You scared me.”

A twinge of pain reverberated through Kim’s chest at the subtle crack in Trini’s voice, and her frown deepened as her eyebrows furrowed further over her gaze. 

“I’m sorry,” she repeated; It was the only thing she could think to say.

Trini shook her head then.

“It’s okay. It’s not your fault. I-I was just scared, because I knew that I wouldn’t have been able to live with myself if I didn’t get to return the favor at least once.”

“Wha–.”

And in a full-circle sort of moment, Kim’s sentence was cut short by the abrupt pressing of soft lips against her own.

The hands on her hips shifted, and then warm arms were wrapping fully around her waist, pulling her closer, more flush against Trini’s body. Her fingers tangled themselves effortlessly within the long strands of Trini’s hair, and her eyes fluttered shut as she kissed back with all that she was, and maybe a little bit more after that too…

Because this kiss wasn’t as rushed as their first; There was no impending doom, no villain to fight, nobody else but each other waiting for them to be their salvation.

This kiss was breathtaking, soul shaking, and Kim felt her chest ache so wholly from its effects that when they pulled away once more, she almost staggered backwards; Trini’s grip on her was too tight to let her go though. 

“Oh,” she breathed out, leaning down to rest their foreheads together.

“Yeah, ‘oh,’” Trini said lightly. “Did you really think that you were the only one wanting to share a kiss?”

Kim could feel the light dusting of pink that colored her cheeks then, and she bit her lip bashfully, a shy smile lifting one corner of her mouth; Trini’s eyes shone with endearment as they watched her.

“Well, I mean, yeah,” Kim admitted. “I didn’t think that you actually liked me back, or that you would even be interested in a relationship with me. And now that I think about it, this still doesn’t mean that you want a relationship, because a kiss doesn’t automatically mean that you’re in a relationship with someone. So–.”

Trini kissed her again, to shut her up, and Kim couldn’t really complain at all, as the girl smiled into her mouth. 

“I want a relationship with you,” Trini whispered against her lips. “As long as you’ll have me?”

Kim didn’t answer verbally; She didn’t have to.

With you between my arms

Barefoot on the grass

Listening to our favorite song

“Trini. Dance with me.”

The shorter girl looked over to Kim from where she had been gazing at the stars in the dark sky above them. 

The moonlight illuminated her hazel irises in that breath-stealing way it always did, and it cast beautiful shadows across the features of her face effortlessly.

Training had ended about an hour before, and they had both decided a little alone time would be a great way to end the day; So, they were sat near the edge of the very same cliff Kim had thrown them off of, their fingers entwined and their attention shifting from the sky to each other and back again, lazily.

The time had passed in relative silence, calm and comfortable, until Kim spoke.

Trini’s eyebrows furrowed.

“Huh?”

Kim smiled at her, and she slowly got to her feet before extending her hand down for Trini to take. 

“Dance with me,” she repeated simply. 

“There’s no music?” Trini said, even while she took Kim’s hand into her own again and stood too.

Kim shrugged.

“That’s okay. My favorite thing to listen to is your heartbeat.”

Trini smiled then as well, and she stepped closer as Kim reached for her waist.

“You’re such a sap.”

“Only for you, honey,” Kim whispered before she then started to sway from side to side, prompting Trini to do the same, engaging them in an easy and slow dance, perfect for two young teens in love. 

When you said you looked a mess

“You’re beautiful.”

Trini laughed lightly, a beautiful sound that floated atop the wind.

“I honestly look horrible,” she retorted, quietly and without real malice. “I’m pretty sure there’s dried blood on my shirt right now, babe.”

I whispered underneath my breath

But you heard it

“Darling, you look perfect tonight.”

Like for real, what are people fighting/dying for? Clean water. Food on the table. To not suffer financial ruin if they get sick/injured. Food on the table. A home. Not to get killed by the state. Education.

Yeah. We are really asking for a lot from motherfuckers that have so much money they couldn’t spend it all in 100 lifetimes. 

Crumbs. 

We literally have the ability to solve all of those issues, but nah because…capitalism. 

anonymous asked:

Hiiii! My friend and I really love your writing of Sonamy and she had this concept that she really wanted you to write: Concept: Eggman, in an attempt to ruin Sonic, invents literal nightmare fuel that slowly breaks down Sonic's ego and makes him feel powerless and afraid to sleep. He first tests this on Amy and after that, he tests it on the rest of the team...

I LOOOOVEEEE request like this!!! :DDD Thank you so much!!! It’s a plot, it’s depth, and it’s so cute~<3

Tell your friend she’s a mini-genius!!! :Db And thank you both for supporting me and my stories! Means a lot :’3

I hope I can do her idea justice, precious anon!

Prompt:

Eggman was using a drill-bot to carve it’s way into the deepest, darkest cave imaginable. All the way out in the middle of nowhere, Eggman peered inside the drilled, crumbled rock.

Only his glasses shone in that pitch darkness, as then his smiling teeth as he saw the object he desired, glowing with whisps of purple light, not like the aliens, but darker… more corrupted entities.

Back at his lab, he snorted, giggled, and squawked laughters as he pushed and pressed buttons like his fingers were dancers.

“At last! I’ve got it! I think I’ve got the code to trigger their power and centralize it into one … dream…” he rubbed his hands together, “Huhuhu… with these ‘nightmares’ I’ll have Sonic losing all hope! He’ll believe he’s a good-for-nothing! And I’ll be the emperor of the eggman empire in no time!~” he jumped to turn around and click his heels together, rushing over to the cylinder, clear tube that held the destructive creatures. They’re mouths opened to whispy daggers for teeth, and their purple, smokey bodies blinked with glares.

“There, there… my little evil critters~” he tapped his fingers to the glass, making them freak out and shake their hands, wanting to attack but returning to the urn which they were trapped inside.

“Hehehe~ Hohoho!!!” He billowed another loud laugh as he leaned his back into an arch in his joy.

But within that laughter, he realized something. “ho, ho?” he blinked his eyes, motioning his neck down. “But what if my test run doesn’t work? I’ll need to test my hypothesis on directing these little balls of terror before I actually unleash them on Sonic’s team! Hmm..” he rubbed his chin, thinking…

He suddenly smirked, turning to his computer.

“…Wasn’t Amy Rose tracking Sonic just a moment ago?”

Amy waddled through the forest, huffing and puffing in her weariness, tapping each tree she passed with the palm of her hand, as if checking to make sure she had stable support if she ever needed it.

She finally stood up straight, exhausted from a long day, and leaned her head back. “Ugh.. He’s traveled too far this time.” She moaned, before lowering her head with a heavy sigh. “And I was really hoping to spend time with him today…” she pouted, looking truly disappointed, but not that upset as she was used to sometimes failing on her ventures to find Sonic.

“He’s a tricky one.” she mused, picturing him dashing over large fields, defeating robots, and maybe even taking a second to stop and smile at a passing thought of her.

“Ha~~~” she sighed, melting at the idea of Sonic taking a second to think of her for a change.

Eggman positioned his gun perfectly, focusing the nightmartic spirits where he wanted their power concentrated.

“Eat her dreams alive, boys… woo-hohohho!” he laughed, and fired down once the gun rocked it’s way to have her in the center of it’s target. “Fire!”

Eggman’s gun sprung the spirit’s power, a misty purple smoke, straight through the atmosphere as it hit her in the back of her head, and spiraled down her body.

Amy suddenly felt a wave of sleepiness hit her upside the head, and all of a sudden, a strange aroma was pulling her to sit down… to rest… to take it easy…

“Wha-..what..?” she knew this wasn’t right, as she slowly came to her knees, and started to lay down. “H…Help…” she lightly rested her head down, as her whole body became too heavy to move, and too weak to stand…

There were puzzles under her feet, and as she looked down, she noticed some were glowing a bright, see-through gold.

“Amy…”

Amy looked up, before smiling happily towards Sonic, a little ways away on the same puzzle-piece floor she was on.

“Sonic!” Her voice echo’d in the empty space.

He looked upset, turning away from her. “You have to stop this mess.”

“…Ah… Mess?” she was confused, but she held her hands back, her feet paused from rushing towards him.

She had never seen such a shallow expression on his face before…

“I don’t want you always trying to find me! To hog my attention away from the world!” he swiped his hand out, looking more and more frustrated, as she stepped a foot back.

“…A-..Attention..?” She held her fists up to her chest, not sure what he was saying.

The puzzle-piece below her suddenly fell, as her foot almost fell through the crack.

She gasped as she pulled it up, looking down at the puzzle piece, and studying how it could have fallen…

As her eyes scanned, Sonic’s voice once again arose, this time much harsher and crueler than even she thought possible to imagine.

“This is it, Amy! I’m tried of letting you get away with what you want!”

“What I… want?” she turned around, her eyes shaking at his words.

“Sonic…” she could feel her heart breaking, her lips trembling as tears almost threatened her.

Around her, puzzle pieces on the floor started falling, strikes of lightning taking some of them out.

“I can’t stand it, Amy! I can’t stand you!” Sonic bit down on the word, glaring as he lunged himself forward.

“I WISH YOU WOULD JUST DISAPPEAR!”

As he threw his arm out, Amy felt the ground beneath her break and dip down, the puzzle pieces falling rapidly as she fell with them, reaching up for his cold, unfeeling expression as he watched her fall.

“Sonic…” her eyes widened, gripping her hands before forcing them apart and reaching up for him. “NOOO!!!!”

She disappeared into the darkness, hovering in the air.

“I don’t want to be alone… I don’t… I …” She gripped herself into a tight curl, but not fully a ball, as her hair and dress rippled in the mist of the empty space.

There was nothing now.

No sound but her own desperate cries.

Tears floated in the space around her.

“I… I don’t want to die without knowing…. knowing what it’s like… I don’t want to be alone… I don’t want to die alone!!!”

She threw her head up, screaming.

“SOOOONNNIICCCC!!!!”

The Sonic above, turned his head away, walking away from the surface.

Once absent from her sight, his face suddenly morphed to the snickering of the nightmaric spirit, chuckling with it’s jagged, spiked teeth; Sonic’s body myistifying into a purple smokey being.

—-

“Excellent!” Eggman jumped up from his seat, watching the activity of her vital signs and pulses, mental strain and brainwaves, the like; determining right then and there that his experiment was a success!

“Now, then! To the others!”

He pushed some buttons, as the gun flung around and shot the remaining nightmaric spirits to the different locations he punched in.

He twirled around with the gun, doing a little silly dance before looking back at his creation. “Tonight! Eggman industries presents a spectacular, dream-like experience you’ve NEVER dared to have before! WHOHOHOH!” as he laughed, the nightmaric spirits all gathered together in the tube, seeming to scheme, before turning to Eggman, and laughing creepishly towards him…

Sonic turned in his sleep, as did Tails and Knuckles, as each one had a horrific nightmare of their deepest, darkest fears.

Sonic was engulfed in water, unable to do anything, and for some reason, still able to breathe.

“Noo!” he cried out, trying to move upward, but only sinking as Amy and his friends were slashed through, shadowy silhouettes showing their last moments of life, and even Amy reaching down in the water to him, before red filled the water, dying it as it floated past him like curved paint in an oil canvas, swarming his being.

Powerless, Sonic watched the red surround him, polluting the water and gripping his throat.

He struggled to breathe now.

“N.. nmm!” he gripped his throat, his cheeks puffing up to try and remain with oxygen.

His arms flailed through the water, as suddenly he was pulled down into a dark abyss, his friend’s silhouettes being thrown into the water… Metal Sonic’s shadow… turning to stare down at him from a distance… at the surface.

Then, it shifted, turning into a nightmaric spirit’s face, and cackled as Sonic’s feet were limp, and weren’t able to kick him towards the surface of the water…

He closed his eyes, feeling life drain from him.

He was forced to be pulled under the water’s current…

Tails was trapped in a small cube, as he pounded on it and cried out to let him out, his X-Tornado turning on him and firing, causing lightning to spring out from it’s guns and attack the cube.

Tails threw up his arms, crying out as his mouth hung in utter fright.

He ducked down, unable to avoid as the X-Tornado went back up into the thunderstorm, and then spiraled down to let out a fresh new patch of lightning down upon his trapped self.

“Stop it!!!” Tails shouted out, as suddenly he heard Sonic’s piercing cry, and looked up.

“No!” Tails banged on the cube, “Sonic!”

Sonic,… Amy… Knuckles… they were all being struck by Lightning, and falling down, rising up as zombie like expressions on their faces, and walking towards him.

“You couldn’t help us, Tails…” Amy’s faint voice barely made it to his ears.

His eyes shook, scooting away from that side of the cube. “No…”

“You’re useless to me, Tails…” Sonic’s body kept hobbling towards the cube, his head going limp.

Tails shook in utter terror.

“You’re still a no one… not a friend of ours.” Knuckles’s arms stretched forward. “Now we’ll take you out… so the lightning can kill you too.”

They all piled the box.

“No…Stop… please…! I’m sorry! I’m sorry I wasn’t good enough! I’m sorry!!!”

The three nightmartic spirits chuckled, their faces shifting as Tails threw his hands over his head, his tails also encircling him in his great fear.

Knuckles struggled to try and keep his new family safe, but with each robot army that came, he turned to suddenly see them swiped down, out of existence, turning to nothing more than dust.

“Ah!” he rushed to them, gripping the dirt. “The last echidnas…” he was alone again, before looking up and seeing the robots break the Master Emerald, turning it into small fragments that they crushed to utter oblivion…

Their sparkling powder floated by him, as his eyes widened and they stung his open eyes.

“NOOO!!!”

Angel Island came crashing down, the robots self-destructing as suddenly the Island bent into itself, cracking and splitting, till lost in the sea…

Knuckles smashed the earth beneath him, before his shoulders bounced in his tears, and he laid down before the crashing sea…

“No…Rouge… Sonic… My friends… My family… The Master Emerald… I’ve failed them.. I’ve failed them all…”

Behind him, the robots faces turned to nightmaric spirits, laughing…

“WHHOHOHOHHO! BRILLIANT!” Eggman danced around in his lab, even going disco-funky with his actions. “Now, to take over the world!” He stuck a finger up, posing, before typing more coordinates.

But by this time… he hadn’t realized the Nightmares were growing with the dread and fear that came from their hosts… and they’re being morphed into Sonic, Amy, Tails, and Knuckles.

The remaining nightmare spirits laughed in their usual way, before breaking the cylinder tube… and going for Eggman.

“W-what?” he saw the gun stop firing, and turned around.

“No… no,… NOO!!” Eggman threw his hands up, as they chuckled and swarmed his being in their mist, knocking him out and diving into his dreams… their laughter never ceasing…

Sonic woke up in a cold sweat, blinking hard and breathing irregularly.

He touched his chest… no water.

Just the cold of the wind.

His eyes were heavy, but he shook his head, getting up.

“That was no dream…” Sonic concluded, and turned to look out away from him.

He heard someone shouting his name…

Suddenly, the sound became more clear as he gained control over his senses again…

“Amy!!!” he charged, bolting himself through the long distance to find where the echo was coming from.

It disturbed him, seeing he was awake, but her voice was bouncing off from everywhere.

The mountains didn’t help.

The valleys were worst.

He finally found her, collapsed under a tree, screaming out with tears pouring down her face.

“Tails! Knuckles! Someone help me!!!” she cried in her sleep, talking outloud.

“Hang on, Amy! Wake up! Snap out of it!” Sonic knelt down and shook her, before her eyes sprung up, and she fought him slightly away.

“Don’t hurt me! Don’t hurt me!”

Sonic, startled by the response, immediately pulled his hands away from her, backing away.

“Amy… it’s me… It’s Sonic..” he took a gentler tone, his eyes bending back as he worried his shaking had startled her to the point of possibly hurting her.

“Amy… You’re alright. It was just a dream.”

She breathed hard, gripping herself, looking around.

“It’s… it’s dark.”

He saw she was getting her senses back, and bent down again beside her, offering her his arms. “It’s cold too.”

She gripped him with a death-hold of pure, unfathomable terror.

She clung to him like her source of life, breathing rapidly off measure, and having her heartbeat influence his own rapidly beating one.

“You’re alright, Amy. I don’t know what’s going on. But I’m worried about Tails and the others.” He gently held her, before feeling her tremble and lightly moving his hand to her head, stroking it to try and still her.

“You’re alright. I’m here… Whatever that was… Whatever thing possessed us… I won’t let it get away with this.”

He found some relief in having her around… at least he knew he wasn’t dreaming anymore either.

She nodded, finally calming down to a regular breath, before wiping her eyes and finally letting him go.

“My dream… While I was sinking into the dark… I heard Tails, and Knuckles laughing too. Everyone was laughing.”

“Mine too.” Sonic could only recall the deformed image of Metal Sonic, his eyes glowing… his face turning to a jagged grin…

He looked away from her a moment, considering the possibility… “Maybe we were all trapped under the same dreams…”

“Why do you say that?” Amy looked more directly to him, confused.

“Because I was sinking too.”

Amy let out a pity groan, lightly, as if feeling empathy for him.

“I’m fine.” He lied, patted her head again, trying more to sooth her than himself.

“We… we need to stick together. To find the others.” He wouldn’t admit it, but he didn’t want to leave her side. Fear still gripped him. He wasn’t letting her out of his sights.

Tails and Knuckles were both awakened, and the only explanation to the increased power source that night, from Tails’s readings, were coming from Eggman’s base.

“I didn’t know he had a base way out here.” Sonic saw the robots smashed against the side of the doors… the doors wide open… the halls showing wired ripped robots…

“Something came in.” Knuckles tightened his fists, getting ready…

“No…” Sonic stopped walking, turning seriously with a knowing look towards the broken cylinder. “Something got out.”

Eggman groaned.

The four all turned to him, laying down, up against his control station.

“I don’t want to be alone.. without a cause, please! Let me destroy you a little longer! I promise! I’ll be better! Don’t go! Don’t leave me without a purpose!!!”

He tossed his head desperately, before Amy walked over, taking her hammer out.

“Amy.” Sonic cautioned, worried what she would do with him.

She saw his arm extended, and nodded, “I’m just waking him up.” she answered over her shoulder, looking back to him. “No one deserves the nightmares we’ve all endured…”

No one disputed her.

Amy whacked Eggman on the head, light enough that it wasn’t painful, but still enough to snap him out of it.

He woke up, flinching, sweat trailing down his bald forehead.

“Wha..where… where am I?”

“Alive.” Sonic almost spoke through his teeth. “Now… tell us where they are?”

“You’re not good enough.”

The team turned around, seeing the nightmaric spirits, all morphed into their figures, even an Eggman one, raising their heads with smirks.

You’re pathetic!” The Tails spirit stated, right after the Sonic one spoke.

Pitiful.” The Amy spirit spat out.

Worth less than dirt!” The Eggman spirit swished a ghostly hand out, purple mist trailing it’s action.

The five stood tall,.. there was a moment of silence… as more hurtful and piercing insults stung at their pride and their hearts.

“…Sonic.” Eggman dipped his head down, but clearly addressing him. “I wouldn’t normally say this… but… circumstances as they are-”

“We’ll fight them.” Sonic spoke carefully, but quickly.

He nodded his head, “Together.”

Eggman turned to him, seeing the forgiveness and nodded, turning back to the nightmare spirits.

“That urn in my large, broken flask is the only thing that can trap them.”

“We have to conquer our fears then.” Amy threw her arm back, her hammer positioned and ready to strike as she bent her knees. Ready.

“We have to stand together.” Tails also prepared himself. Ready.

“I may be able to forgive Eggman… but not you creeps!” Knuckles bashed his fists together, shouting loudly his war cry. Ready.

Sonic… was not ready.

He clenched his fist, as Amy could see.

His nightmaric spirit tilted his head, smirking as it narrowed it’s eyes.

“…Sonic.” Amy gently put her hand to his.

He twitched his head up, looking to her.

He was surprised at first, but nodded in understanding.

He wasn’t going to fail his friends.

He wasn’t going to be useless.

He was going to fight.

And he was going to win!

His friends would be just fine.

“Ready!” Sonic called to them, looking fierce with a renewed, confident smile.

“READY!” They all charged, as Eggman looked around, and sprang up to follow after them, swinging a fist to his nightmaric spirit.

“AHHH!!!” he went right through him, as the other spirit laughed, hitting him down.

“Grr.. Oh, I get it.” Eggman got back up. “I’m worth twice as many evil villains as you!” He threw his fist again.

The spirit looked confused, startled into freezing still, as the fist made it disappear, and it’s purple mist came back into the urn.

“Heheh~” Eggman boasted, blowing on his fist to get the remaining purple trail off of it.

Sonic spin dashed, “I’m the hero of my own story!” the other Sonic vanished in a similar manner, returning to the urn.

Sonic struck a pose, his hand flared up as he landed and uncurled, smiling his signature cocky grin.

“I’m not worthless, I’m ten times smarter than you!” Tails threw a wrench into the spirit, as it trailed back into the urn.

“I’m not alone!!” Knuckles whammed into his spirit, “My duty isn’t over yet!” as it returned to the urn.

“I’m… I’m…” Amy was still under the nightmares influence, as it waited, before knocking her down in impatience.

“Offph!”

“Amy!”

The team gathered around her, even Eggman, helping her up.

She looked around her, seeing her friends right by her side.

She turned to the spirit, eyes fixed in her resolve.

“I’m… Strong.”

She took out the spirit as it returned to the urn.

The urn was placed back in the cave, sealed up by Eggman.

He crossed his heart in a gesture to Sonic and his friends, showing he wouldn’t go near that cave ever again…

(I tried to keep it canon, what do you think? :) )

MY WINGS THEORY!! Please read 🖤

(I’m actually pretty convinced in this theory….it’s based on the European story…Damien(didn’t really include that in my theory though…and the legend of Lucifer and the fallen angels.)
Sorry this is so long!! I connected some of the best theories I saw online..so, let me know what you think! x
I’ll analyze all the music videos:

~I NEED YOU~
All of them died (Jin died first. he committed suicide after that girl in school from Boy In Luv and War Of Hormone rejected him. Pretty sure he drowned himself in that car they keep driving around with.)
All the others died/killed themself after Jin passed away because they couldn’t live without their friend.
(Jimin drowned himself, J-Hope died of an overdose of pills, Kookie gets beaten up, then ends up in a car crash, Suga kills himself by setting his room on fire, Rap Monster died by fire too at his working place when he drops the cigarette, Tae kills himself by falling/jumping into water
All of them, accept V, kill themselfes in the music video to “I Need You”
.
~PROLOGUE VIDEO~
Then follows the Prologue video. In which V tries to call someone (we know it’s Rap Monster, but he doesn’t answer.) after that we see V waking up in this very weird place..i think this video is based on the legend of Peter Pan..the kinda scary one. And it fits the concept of “Young Forever”
Let me break it down for you. This is not the disney, kids story. This is the legend of Peter Pan and the lost boys.
So, we all know Peter Pan takes lost boys to Neverland to never grow up, right? This is what’s happening here.
This place where V wakes up suddenly looked so weird for me.
So, the legend goes that Peter takes boys who are lost and don’t have anyone, who want to die anyway, to Neverland to kill them. The only condition is, that the one who’s supposed to die there, dies because he wants to die. They can’t just kill someone. They have to do it by free will.
This is why the lost boys don’t grow up there.. they are dead.
Peter and the lost boys have to convince the new boy to stay with them and to never grow up..they have to make him wanting to die.
In this case, Rap Monster is portraying Peter Pan and V the lost boy who get’s taken. He really is a lost boy at this part, because he doesn’t have anyone now.
The other boys are the lost boys who are already dead and on Peter’s(Rap Monsters) side.
Basically V calls Rap Mon, he doesn’t pic up because obviously he’s already dead. Instead, V get’s taken by Rap Monster (Peter Pan) to Neverland (this weird place V wakes up in)
V doesn’t really realize what’s going on, because all of the lost boys are his friends and he feels comfortable with them. In this world, he can forget about killing his father and just be with his loved ones. They play around in this weird place..playing pirate, fighting with sticks, sitting around campfires and sleep in the woods..who does this remind you of? Exactly, Peter Pan and his lost boys.
The boys and Rap Monster don’t want to let V go back to the real world. They want him with them in this world so they have to convince him to stay and to kill himself. This is a trade Peter Pan has..selfishness.
Also, Rap Mon is wearing a Nirvana shirt..The place when you’re between life and death is also called Nirvana..V later is wearing one too.
At the end, V climbs up the tower and is about to jump when the other boys cheer happily. They cheer because they tempted his friend to kill himself. Now, they are all together again..and do the things they did before. They even got Jin back.
.
~RUN~
Then there is the Run video in which we get to see V, who just jumped from that tower, basically reflecting on all the sins they begann when Jin died, but BEFORE HE KILLED HIMSELF AND BEFORE THE OTHERS KILLED THEMSELFES!!
We get to see Jin, dead, in that white room, imagining what it would be like to be with the boys at that time, realizing that he can’t,
Jimin and J-Hope in that white hospital room,dead and remembering all the stupid things they did when their friend died.(pillow fight)
We get to see Kookie at the end, dead, remembering everything they did, winking at Jin in the car because they’re all together now.
That video is basically a flashback of V when he’s close to death. Which is why we see him falling into water at the beginning and we keep seeing him struggling under the water during the video.
It’s a flashback of the boys trying to deal with the death of their friend..when they realized they can’t deal with it, they commit suicide. (Which is why we see V under water,looking at the camera at the end, meaning he’s dead now.)
And that’s the reason why Jin is acting strange in that video..because he isn’t actually there..but the other boys are still alive.
V just remembers all the stupid things they did BECAUSE of Jin’s death. Like, we see V&Rap Mon getting arrested(RUN) after that V went to his parents for support after he got out of prison and then killed his father(I NEED U),
we see Kookie and Suga fighting(RUN), after that fight Suga probably went to his house very upset and killed himself(I NEED YOU)
and Kookie, still numb from that fight with Suga(RUN) goes on the street where he get’s attacked by these guys and get’s in a car accident, he dies.(I NEED YOU)
Also, that scene is important..because it’s the scene where Kookie realizes what they’re doing is wrong! Suga just doesn’t want to deal with it so him and Kookie fight.
Jimin getting drowned in the bath by his friends just for fun(RUN) becomes reality and Jimin drowns himself(I NEED YOU)
To sum this up, everything in that video, accept the scenes under water of V, the scene of Jimin and J-Hope in this weird hospital like place, Jin in that weird,white room and especially the ending scene with Kookie turning around to the car, happened before the “I need You” music video and before the Prologue in which V jumps but not dies yet..
The video is basically different memories from before they killed themselfes.
The scenes in these weird, white rooms of Jimin/J-Hope and Jin are in the present time, they are already dead, so is the scene of V under water he’s just dying atm.
This RUN video is about V trying to find peace while slowly dying in the water..he is in that weird state between life and death(also called NIRVANA…he’s wearing a Nirvana Hoodie like Rap Mon in the RUN video) and he remembers everything they did..it’s basically the saying “when you die your whole life flashes before your eyes”
..and by the end of the video he’s dead. And we’re in the present time when the boys are walking down the street, followed by a car and Kookie turning around, winking, possibly at Jin in the car in which he killed himself in.
.
~YOUNG FOREVER~
Then, in the epilogue (Young Forever) they try to find their way to peace through a maze..which would go with the Peter Pan theory I had earlier. This video starts right after the last scene in “RUN”.
Now Tae, and all the others are dead, remembered everything they did before they killed themselfes, and then got to this weird maze.
They are basically thinking about the way they died and the sins they committed. And they have to leave them behind in order to move on. Each of them leave the maze in their own speed (some are running, some are walking slowly), Tae left the Maze as the last..he had the worst thing to deal with and it took him longer than the others to deal with it, which is why they are a bit ahead of Tae when he leaves the maze.
(Also, important image here..Tae sees the boys up side down..there is only one place where everything is supposed to be upside down, it’s hell..but it quickly turns around when he joins the boys..this is important because V later becomes the devil himself…more later)
Since all of them died alone, they each have to find their way out of the maze alone to find each other again.
At the end of that we see a plane flying UP to the sky..so basically to heaven, which is where the boys want to go.
.
~FIRE~
Then there is FIRE..in fire they are basically fighting against the sins they committed when they were alive (in that case, the sins are represented by the figures/people in the black hoodies..you never see their faces..) at the end, they have the house full of people in hoodies and TAE is the one who throws himself into them..which shows that he won’t fight the sins he committed and which is why he becomes the fallen angel later in bst (more later..just keep that in mind)
At the end, he runs out with the boys BUT he gave into his sins right before that..which shows that he really didn’t leave his sins behind.. but God in heaven ,where they want to go, for now believes that he does. (More later)
All the boy run out of the building right before it explodes with all the other people in there (the people in hoodies = sins)
So their sins are gone now (basically the boys are forgiven..)
The boys had to face their sins in order to get to heaven (so basically they had to go through hell…how is hell often portrayed? Right, as burning FIRE) that is why Suga at the end of FIRE goes like “i forgive you” because they defeated their worst sides..for now at least…
you know what’s also hell?
.
~WINGS SHORT FILMS~
Right, facing you mistakes/ fears alone..which is in the WINGS short films..the boys are all alone, going through everything they did wrong..having to relive the worst moments (like Jimin drowning again/killing himself..same as J-Hope..(killing yourself is considered a sin)
Suga has to relive fighting/Not helping Kookie, Kookie dying in the car crash and him fighting with Suga. Maybe Suga even blames himself for Kookies death which is why he nearly gets hit by a car in his short film.
Tae obviously has to relive the moments after killing his father, losing his innocence(portrayed by the white dog), then killing himself, and Jin (who killed himself first) has to relive the moment where he decided to kill himself and leave the boys alone (polaroid pictures) which is why all the other short filmes somehow appear in his movie.
And Rap Mon has to relive not answering V’s phonecall after he killed his father..him not answering is the reason why Tae killed himself later..(also reference to the Peter Pan theory) and we see him tattooing himself again..we saw that in “Danger”, i believe..he might regret it and look at it as a sin.
They went through hell in “FIRE” to fight of the sins they committed as a group and they went through their personal hell to fight of the sins they committed themselfs..which is why every member is forgiven after their short film is over..(portrayed by the circles of the WINGS cover..them getting a circle on the WINGS cover shows them getting their WINGS and flying to heaven..)
Their lyrics in the songs are a sign of that too..V for example goes “i’m sorry my sister” = he looks for forgiveness to get to heaven,
Jimin “find the me who was innocent” = well..he wants to get rid of his sins and be innocent again to get to heaven,
Kookie just wants his friends to forgive him with the lyrics..“fly with me” (angels fly obviously)
Also, Jin’s awake is kinda obvious..he wants to be forgiven that he killed himself and he wants to wake up and go to heaven.
So, they are forgiven now and they can go to heaven to become angels..
.
~BLOOD SWEAT AND TEARS~
BST=heaven
There, the atmosphere seems to be perfect, calm..all the boys are together and happy..(in that museum/heaven are many references to the European story I talked about..the german quote, the art work which actually is from the story..)
in that music video the boys are literal angels who each portray one of the 7 deadly sins from the legend:
1. lust (Kookie)
2. Greed (Suga)
3. Anger (J-Hope)
4. Pride (Tae)
5. Envy (Jin)
6. Sloth (Jimin)
7. Glutton (Rap Mon)

I’ll start with Kookie:
He portrayes “Lust”..could be sexual (because he really is in that video omg) but lust also means a desire to avoid pain, emotional comfort, also wine (alcohol)
This is connected to Rap Mon’s “Glutton”
Ever lusted over something so much and now you finally have it and you can’t get enough? (Kookie) Right..that’s Gluttony(Rap Mon) The desire to want more..this is shown through substance abuse and drinking problems..Well, Rap Mon is constantly drinking Absinthe which is this green drink, with really strong alcohol. It’s also called a hallucinogen..or “the drink of WINGS”
So, what happens if Kookie and Rap Mon meet? Right..Kookies innocence get’s spoiled..he has dreams and all his hormones are at war (no pun intended) so he keeps “flying” (hanging from the ceiling) in his own world, trying Absinthe as well.
Basically Kookie leveled up his lust and became glutton.
As a glutton, RapMon is an attention seeker so he happily teaches Kookie his ways..the green color of the absinthe is connected to both of them in the video..and this is why we constantly see both of them together in that one room in the video.

Greed - Suga
“Strong desire to gain attention and power causing disloyalty and betrayal”
Suga has power over Jimin..

Jimin is the “Sloth” which basically means “without care”..
He avoids responsibilities, lack of interest and general absence.
No feelings for the world, yourself or people around you. You just don’t care about anything and don’t make any affords to archive something.
Jimin is in a room with Suga (you can also see the green smoke (absinthe) in there.)
Suga, the one with the “power” looks down through the glass floor to see Kookie and RapMon..but he looks down..so he’s better than them..
the room is empty because “big house, big cars and big rings” + his piano where only things he used to gain this power..they mean nothing to him now.
Greed (Suga) requires a winner(himself) and a loser(Jimin)
When Suga covered Jimin’s eyes, there was a sign behind him saying “the tempter”…Suga probably gave the Apple to Jimin (the apple is a sign of temptation and sins)
He then blindfolds Jimin to get complete control over him..he doesn’t want to share his power with him..he just wants to control him.
But Jimin doesn’t even struggle or fight back one bit. He’s the “Sloth” so he doesn’t care..or maybe he’s just too lazy to do anything about it. Even if he tries to free himself later..he can’t. But u see, Jimin’s hands are completely free. He could’ve just taken the blindfold off but he just didn’t bother..why making an effort..
At the end it’s Suga who takes the ribbon off..Jimin just looks sad. Because he’s the loser and Suga won everything.

Tae (Pride)
Pride is all about “Me,Myself and I”
As I mentioned Tae portrays the Angel Lucifer..he betrayed god(in FIRE because he didn’t actually leave his sins behind) and wants to rule over heaven instead of god..Lucifer’s sin is not wanting to be “god’s right hand” he wants to be god himself. And guess what, a few angels actually followed Lucifer (the 4 other boys..excluding Jin and J-Hope follow him right away).
Before Lucifer was banned from heaven he was the most beautiful angel and the closest to god. He was always described as “golden”, “looking like a gold star” which is probably why V is blonde..
Tae seems so adorable in the video..always smiling, always looking very pretty and cute..he even smiles when he’s jumping/falling from that balcony.
But that’s just a trick. He tricks/ betrayes everyone. (Which is why he’s covered in this white blanket through the whole video..white is a sign of innocence..)
He’s the tempter and wants all of them to think he’s one of the good ones. Which is why his smile is so cheeky when he finally reveals himself. He enjoys being the evil one..typical Lucifer.
He already has Jimin,Suga,Kookie and RapMon on his side..the weaker angels.
Now, Tae (Lucifer) has to keep tempting the other two, higher ranked angels..who have to suffer to follow Lucifers path.

J-Hope (Anger)
Anger helps us to fight injustice (V) in his opinion Tae is doing everything wrong. So he wants revenge. This is not accepted in heaven though, which is why he get’s banned from heaven.
J-Hopes character in “Boy Meets Evil” which was before BST, was so angry!! And so is his character now.
He knows the true,evil nature of V but accepts that he gets banned from heaven and accepts his future with V. He decides that his angry character would match well with V’s evil nature. He enjoys the power of anger and goes with V.
“People who fly into rage will always get a bad landing”
(He get’s banned from heaven because he choose Lucifer, not god)

Envy - Jin
Characterized by insatiable desire which is described as a sad desire towards traits or possessions of someone else.
As well as Pride(V), Envy(Jin) has been associated directly with the devil.
The war in heaven still takes place (chaos in the video..statues smashing, things breaking..)
and more angels will fall from heaven..Jin is one of them.
Jin is as proud as Tae..but he’s still fighting with the decision between good and evil. He slowly leans towards the chaos though.
He looks in a dark mirror..above it says “you still have to have chaos inside you to give birth to a dancing star”…..dancing star= gold star= lucifer..isn’t that interesting?
While the boys (Jimin,Suga,Kookie,RapMon and J-Hope) already accepted their faith and run out of the room (away from heaven/god))
Jin looks unsure once again, but V, the tempter/lucifer covers his eyes. And Jin gives in to Lucifers final temptation. After that, he kisses the statue(the fallen angel) as a symbol for his loyalty to V(Lucifer) Jin now made his faith clear. He’s gonna leave heaven/god with his friends&Lucifer.
Then, V finally shows his true self.
“The Lucifer, the highest angel, falling and yet smiling. He’s not sad about his faith. He’s determined to follow his evil plan.”
Everything crashes at the end, including Jin’s face reflected in the dark mirror.
.
~TOUR TRAILER~
Now, this just confirms everything. They are all basically flying or more likely falling to earth.. (When you get banned from heaven you fall on to earth)
The trailer basically tells us the story of their falls.
The symbols of their sins from BST fall into pieces as well (Suga’s piano is broken in the corner, Kookies swing burning, Jimin’s blindfold is ripped, RapMon is covered in glass (probably from alcohol bottles), J-Hope lying between the arrows which symbolize his anger.
Jin’s story keeps telling us his ultimate fall. When he kisses his own reflection, his ego has grown, his sin..or well Tae’s sin (Pride) took over him and he’s invented a chaos inside him. He’s accepting his fate..there is no return for him now.
All fallen angels fall into corruption..they don’t have their beauty or angelic powers anymore.
Tae regrows his wings in pain..he stands up and spreads his new, black wings with an evil smirk telling us that this us just the beginning.

clark probs wouldn't understand the whole "my crops are dying" or "you've watered my crops" thing that people do in fandom. he'd probably take it literally and be like, "wow! so many other farmers on tumblr! this is so nice! let's talk about irrigation!"

Clark is too good and pure for the internet, please spare this poor alien farm baby

Lance loved water but never knew that it could cause him so much panic and stress. As hey had landed on a planet it begun to rain horribly. Blue and Lance had chosen to go find a place to be safe and Shiro and Keith headed to the castle.

Their comms had been interfered by the harsh weather so Lance didn’t know where Shiro and Keith had gone. He was stuck in a small clearing with Blue. The storm went on until water had flooded everywhere around Blue and Lance. He had begun panicking as he was unable to move Blue. She wasn’t listening to him as he sat there, climbing up on top of her.

He could see the castle just a bit further away and there was water covering from him to the castle. Slowly his comms came back on and he heard Keith and Shiro worrying.

“Lance?! Can you hear us?” Shiro cried as he heard Lance come online. “Yeah. Yeah I can Shiro,” he said and smiled as he heard their sighs of relief. “Do you know where you are?” Keith asked.

“Ivan see the castle. But it’s too far away to get to you mullet. Blue won’t move and won’t listen to me. So I’m stuck in the middle of the flood,” he said and they hummed in thought. The top of Blue’s head was slippery with water. He was careful not to move so much as to not fall into the deep water beneath him.

“Alright. We’ll come and get you and Blue. Since I doubt you’d be able to get through this water yourself,” Shiro said. Keith and Shiro hurried to their lions. As they took off they could see he Blue lion in the middle of the dark blue water. The small dot on the top of her obviously Lance.

As they got close Lance beamed happily and carefully stood up. “Keith, Shiro!!” He called out, smiling brightly as he waved and they got closer. Right at that moment Blue moved to fret her sisters. Lance lost his footing almost instantly, slipping on the water. A scream escaped his lips as he plummeted into the dark water. “Lance!!” Keith and Shiro called out.

“I’ll get him,” Shiro said quickly and put on his helmet so he could breath underwater. He landed his Lion on a small mound a bit more out of the water and quickly submerged himself in the water.

Lance was terrified. He loved water but the sudden coldness and dark mess of it enveloping him made him terrified for his life. The water forced its way into his airway as he landed in the water. He coughed and blinked quickly. ‘Just great… the blue lion of water dying in water. I wonder if Keith and Shiro will be glad without me in their way..’ he thought, whimpering quietly as his threat tightened with loss of air and he began to black out.

He saw a light in the corner of his eyes and felt relieved. At least he would see the brightness of light before going. Soon he was out cold. Shiro trudged along in the water and soon enough found Lance. He grabbed the limo boy and shot up towards the surface. He pulled him out of the water and into Black. Just as quickly as he got him out he began to give him cpr. “Come on Lance, come on wake up. You have to stay with us,” he said worriedly, tears forming in his eyes.

“Shiro, what’s with Lance?” Keith asked worriedly as he had hurried back. He had carried Blue back to the castle while Shiro grabbed the blue paladin. “He’s not breathing..” he whispered and pushed on his chest again. Tears ran down his cheeks as he wished for their Blue paladin back. “Come back to us kitten,” he whispered the nickname Lance adored.

Lance coughed a watery cough and turned on his side, vomiting up large amounts of water from his lungs and throat. “Lance!” Keith called as he heard the noise on the comms. “Oh my god Lance,” Shiro said as Lance coughed the rest out. The black paladin hugged Lance tightly, sighing relief. “Oh my god…” he whispered and pressed his nose into his neck. “I was so scared.. why didn’t you swim up to the surface?” He asked and Lance flushed a bright red. “I can’t swim well..” he mumbled and Shiro laughed softly and smiled.

“We’ll teach you Lance. Just never scare us like that again,” Keith said with a smile. “Got it Mullet,” he remarked, making Shiro laugh with a sweet smile. “Alright let’s go get us dried off. I definitely need after stress cuddles,” Lance remarked sweetly with a warm smile.

I hope you enjoyed this. I wasn’t sure what you wanted with this idea. But it was fun to write. I hope it meets your expectations
(((o(*゚▽゚*)o)))♡

Marked for later

@softhie asked for a bit of my marked for later fic list … so this is like … 5% of it.

- Anywhere I Would Have Followed You     : Or, an AU in which Louis is ridiculously dedicated to his job as a travel writer, Harry desperately wants to become an established photographer, and Paris might just be the place where they fall in love. Featuring a fake proposal, a boy who’s nursing a broken heart and another who’s afraid to open up, and a random work assignment that’s the best thing that’s ever happened to them both. (63k)

- See Clearly Now : OR a five-times fic where two guys, one college dorm room and a faulty door lead to a few embarrassing situations and finding out more about themselves and each other than they ever bargained for.  (11k)

- Big, Bright World  : It really was just a little crush in the beginning, nothing to be worried about. Louis had never really liked anyone he’d worked with in the past, but he was sure he could control himself. Little did he know that over time his ‘little crush’ would develop into a blazing inferno of Hell-fire proportions. Every day, Louis’ feelings became more intense, more immediate, each little smile and gesture and silly flirtation mounting up into something palpable, with a life of its own. Louis felt it every moment they were together. The only problem? Harry was engaged to someone else and had been from the moment Louis started working at Visionary. Office AU (not based on the TV show). (35k)

- Every Little Thing He Does Is Magic  :  There were only a few things Louis didn’t believe in. You could include in that list the Easter bunny, the tooth fairy, and also Father Christmas. Having four little sisters, though, he had to pretend that all of them were real for the sake of keeping their imagination alive.Surprisingly, there was one thing, that not until his oldest little sister turned 11 did Louis believe in and did he think would actually be real: magic. Louis’ sister was a witch and everything he knew would never be the same again.  Part 1 of the Mistletoes & Wrackspurts series, or the Hogwarts AU where Louis is a muggle, Lottie finds out she is a witch and Harry is Lottie’s wizard friend from Hogwarts, with a lot of magic, letters, owl cuddles and crushes on boys from different worlds.  (92k)

- The Butterfly Effect.: Harry loves life. He loves his job, he loves his major, he loves clouds, he just loves everything. And he especially loves the infatuating boy  who always sits across the bakery he works at with a blue balloon each day which he always lets go. Louis loves…well Louis doesn’t really love anything. Especially not himself. Or life. Or anything. And he most certainly doesn’t understand why Harry likes him so much, yet he still finds himself falling for him. But as infatuation grows into love it inevitably turns into the greatest casualty of all. (131k)

- As long as you’re smiling and… wear clothes : American AU where Harry has anxiety, Liam and Zayn in pure fluff and Louis is his sunshine-self.  (90k)

- so let’s cross the lines we lost : Louis lives a not so quiet life on a not so quiet street. Starting university was supposed to be easy, that is, until he realises his new neighbour is Harry Styles, and they kind of hate each other, so falling for him is definitely out of the question. (or: Harry and Louis have a complicated past, Niall throws too many parties, Zayn is definitely not pining, and Liam just wants everyone to get along) (165k)

- lips speak louder : Pool water dyed blue, a deep hatred for R.E.M., shorts catching on fire, a karaoke night that somehow changes everything, an angering lack of proper communication—oh, and what’s camp without a bit of rivalry? (AU in which Louis is a summer camp counselor along with a few other less-than-qualified people just trying to make it through the next four weeks in one piece. The curly-headed bloke from the camp sharing the campsite with them surely won’t let that happen) ‘29k)

- Were We Ever This Young? : Hogwarts AU in which Harry and Louis both return to give talks to seventh years about the 'real world’ with slightly varying results. Inspired by the Chilton scene between Rory and Paris in the new Gilmore Girls. (17k)

- Snow Job : Harry is a world famous rock star who is closeted and never gives interviews. Louis is a failed novelist and reporter for a gossip magazine that has fallen on hard times.

Louis finds out that Harry has a mountain cabin near where his friends Zayn and Niall live and heads up to try and meet him. In a twist of fate, Louis has an accident and Harry saves him. Will Louis get his story, or will the fact that he’s falling in love change things? Will Harry forgive him when he finds out Louis is lying to him? Will Harry find the courage to come out of the closet and finally be happy?  (42k)

- The End Should Be A Good One : Or, the one where Harry loses the love of his life on New Years Eve and finds him again, six months later, ready to open some poorly-stitched wounds. (43k)

- The Boys of Summer: AU. In which Louis is a reluctant sports coach, Harry’s a fellow counselor who wears tiny yellow shorts, and camp rules say they’re forbidden to date. (45k)

anonymous asked:

15 with omega Hux, please :)

15. Omega crying and shutting down once they are rejected, trying to climb onto the Alpha to get them to mate/bond them.

Despite Kylo’s grip around his wrists being soft, Hux feels like it’s crushing him.

The omega pouts, trying to wriggle his hands free from Kylo’s tight hold, but the alpha is persistent.

“We can’t,” Kylo says, shaking his head, pushing Hux further away from him. “I’ve sworn never to allow myself to bond to anyone. That includes you, Hux. I’m sorry.”

Hux whimpers, his chest paining harder with every breath that Kylo takes. The heat that’s rising throughout his body only worsens as Kylo verbally rejects him, growing more ferocious with each shove away.

“N-no,” Hux stutters, eyes wide. “I need–want–you, Ren. I’m dying, please, just hold me–”

“I said no, omega,” Kylo growls, pushing Hux a little to hard. He stumbles back on weak legs with a cry and collapses onto his backside, legs splayed out. “I’m sorry, Hux. This is out of my control. Snoke has my word that I will remain unbonded to keep focus on my training.”

Hux grits his teeth, unable to comprehend what this means for him. Kylo is the only alpha he’s ever wanted, the only knot he’s ever fantasised about filling him, and the only one Hux wants to become bonded to.

But the alpha has rejected him. Surely, Hux thinks, death is next.

“No, please,” Hux whispers, moving to his knees, eyes wide and unblinking as tears begin to form. “Alpha. Please. Don’t. Please. Need.”

But Kylo says nothing, or even if he does, the deafening silence in Hux’s mind prevents him from hearing anything but his own wild heartbeat. It can’t end like this, Hux thinks, he can’t let this strong and worthy alpha slip free because of his own weakness. Hux is sure it’s not because of Kylo’s promise to his master; it’s because he thinks Hux is undesirable, a pitiful runt of an omega who needs a knot to keep him quiet.

With the least amount of dignity he’s ever shown but with his cares lost, Hux crawls forward, head bowed, coming to a halt at Kylo’s feet to look up at him with pleasing eyes. He dares to bring his palm up to lay it upon Kylo’s thigh, courageous enough to rub his tear-stained cheek against the alpha’s crotch, nuzzling his rising cock.

“Hux, stop,” Kylo says, placing his hand on top of Hux’s head.

But despite the gesture meant to mean something defensive, Hux can’t help his surprise when Kylo’s fingers thread through his tousled hair like a mother would to a distressed pup, or a lover to a lover.

“Don’t leave me,” Hux whispers, fingers clinching at the material of Kylo’s pants. “Please, Ren. I need you. Kylo. Take me.”

The silence that follows is thick, heavy on Hux’s shoulders as he closes his eyes, imagining himself lying upon Kylo’s chest in their bed rather than rubbing his cheek against the front of the alpha’s pants.

Just before Hux brings his other hand up to caress Kylo’s leg, he hears Kylo make a distressed sound, a growl somewhere between a moan and a sob, and he looks up to see Kylo’s eyes glazed with tears.

“I need you too, Tidge,” Kylo says, sliding his hand down from Hux’s hair to under his chin, rubbing his thumb across the omega’s dry lips. “It’s like you’re forbidden, but stars, I’ve got to have you.”

Hux lets out a long sigh, opening his mouth for the alpha to slip his thumb inside, sucking eagerly like it’s the water his dying body has been gasping for.

And now, he’s going to make sure he drowns in it.
