Commenting on Fanfic: A how-to guide for not being an asshole. Even unintentionally.
You’ve just read a fanfic that has left an indelible impression, and the siren song of the comment box is calling your name. It begs for you to send your opinion to the author… but should you? Are your thoughts really helpful or encouraging or even all that important?
Well… lets break it down! What do you want to say, and should you say it? And if you should, what should you say?
I want to flail at them because their writing is amazing! My comment would be nothing but effuse praise and adulation.
Full speed ahead, captain! By all means! You post that comment! Write for days! There is not enough positive feedback in all the world if you’re a fanfic author. We drink that shit up like it’s the blood of the innocent.
And if you feel awkward about commenting on explicit fic, don’t fret. We’ve all been there. Don’t do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable, but if you want to say something positive about an explicit work, go for it! We wrote explicit fic. We know why you’re here.
Something to consider: While, “THIS IS AMAZING! FLAILING FOREVER! THANK YOU!” is an awesome compliment to receive, it isn’t the same as positive feedback. If you’d like to have a bigger impact on an author that you really enjoy, comment with something specific about their writing and how it moved you.
- “I liked the way you decribed <specific thing here>. It made me feel like I was part of the story.”
- “Your word choice here was amazing!”
- “ *cut and paste a small section of dialogue or action* This was my favorite part.”
This is not necessary by any means. Flail-comments are still the greatest thing ever, and are the best part of any writer’s day. It’s not a matter of one being better than the other. It’s about what sort of impact you want to have on the writer. Praise and flailing are ego and mood boosters and are sure to help us keep writing, and writing more of what you like. Specific positive feedback is a great way to help a writer find and improve their voice when writing.
And “thank you” is always nice. It’s good to acknowledge that fic writers do this on their free time, and let them know that you appreciate it.
This fic is amazing and I want to encourage updates or ask when it will be updated!
Tread carefully here. While on one hand, you could simply be meaning to encourage a writer to keep writing, but I know a lot of writers (particularly who start publishing before they are finished) that get anxious over requests for updates. Be mindful of your wording, and be sure you tell the author that you’re enjoying the work. Keep it positive and encouraging.
Remember that fanfic authors have lives outside of writing fic. There may be some real world obstacles in the way of their fic writing, and guilting them about updates will not help. And in fact, it may hinder their ability to write. Not everyone responds well under pressure when it comes to creative outlets.
Something to consider: Pair your request with compliments! And avoid outright demands for updates.
Do: “This story is so amazing. I really love your pacing throughout the chapters. The suspense is amazing. I can’t wait for more! Thank you so much for writing!”
Don’t: “When are you updating? I’m dying here!” or “Update soon !!!”
Eeek! This fic I really love has a typo/grammatical error! Can I tell the author in a comment?
Pause for a moment! We are now treading into the dangerous land of uninvited criticism. While your intentions are no doubt good, this could very very easily be taken the wrong way. Or just flat unwanted for whatever reason. This is criticism that is coming quite possibly from a total stranger. There are a few things to consider.
First, check the author’s notes on the fic itself. Do they state that it’s unbetaed and invite corrections? Some do! Myself included when I publish something that has been edited by no one but myself. I know I miss things. When this is the case, I always put an invitation for corrections in my author’s notes, and many other fic writers do the same. Or they put it in their author bio on their main page.
If you see no explicit invitation for corrections, do not do it. It’s as simple as that. I don’t care how egregious the errors are. It is quite simply not your place.
If you do see an invitation for corrections, a few steps are advised. First, go leave a comment on the fic. Make no mention of the corrections there. Just let them know you enjoyed it and thank them for their work. Then, send them a private message, not anonymously, with a gentle wording of the correction. Don’t do this in a comment that everyone can see. There’s no need to be exhaustive if you’ve caught a lot of errors. Sometimes just one or two corrections are enough to make an author go back through with a fine-toothed comb themselves. Then, thank them again in the private message and lay on a compliment or two there as well. Again… this is not their day job, nor are you their writing professor.
Do: In a private message, “Hi AmazingAuthorPerson! I absolutely loved your fic “Fic from the Pairing X.” You invited spelling corrections in your author notes, and I wanted to let you know that this word was mispelled here.” *copy/paste line where mispelling takes place* “Your work is incredible. Thank you so much for taking the time to write and share with us! Sincerely, PoliteReaderPerson.”
Don’t: In a public comment, “I found errors X, Y, Z, AA, BB, and CC.”
Something to do instead: If you’ve got a good eye for editing, and you’re really interested in helping out fanfiction writers, consider becoming a beta reader. I see requests for beta readers all the time, particularly from people writing in their second/third/fiftyseventh language, and some of the more established fandoms have lists of beta readers. Just know that this can sometimes mean forming a relationship with a writer that goes beyond just comments on their work. Part of what makes unsolicited corrections icky is that they’re coming from total strangers.
The author did not appropriately tag something! Can I tell them?
This is a similar situation to the above scenario with corrections. Even though you may not feel like it be careful, especially with your wording.
First, consider if there’s something seriously misleading going on? Is the maturity rating wrong? Did they fail to tag triggering material that would have been important to you to know about for safety reasons?
If it truly is something serious, especially regarding triggering material, very gently tell them using the same method as for corrections. And remember that even though you might be upset, aiming that negativity at the author for what might be an honest mistake or just flat ignorance about tagging is not helpful in the long run.
“Hi AmazingAuthorPerson! I really appreciate that you take the time to write fanfiction for our fandom. In your fic, “Character Has a Bad Day” there is a scene that contains XYZ triggering material, but the fic is not tagged as containing XYZ material. Would you please update your tags so that your readers can be aware if they need to be? Thank you again for your work! Sincerely, PoliteReaderPerson.”
Don’t: Flame or even shame them in a public comment. Or be rude or angry in the private message.
Regardless of what the author’s response is, move on with your life. You’re not the fandom police.
Oh no! I just read a fic and I didn’t like the pairing/ending/a plot twist! I with they had done something else! I need to tell the author!
No, you don’t.
It’s as simple as that so let me repeat it.
No, you don’t.
Here is where we get into the most valuable tool in a fic-reader’s commenting arsenal.
Yes, it’s true! The option exists to just not comment. You can read something, not like it, and then move on with your life!
Odds are good the author chose to write what they did for a reason that is personal to them. The idea of changing canon, keeping to canon, shipping a pair, not shipping a pair, or whatever it was spoke to them and they wanted to explore it. Or it was a request from a friend! Regardless, let them do so in peace.
Or go write your take on the same pairing and write it how you think it should be done. I’ll be honest, I’ve read some fanfic where I’ve gone… “Yeah, I don’t know that I like that. I think I would like this better.” And then I go write it! Or at least bat the idea around awhile until it’s out of my system. Hell… isn’t that what fix-it-fics and non-canon-compliant actually is?
Do: Click the little “x” window. Go read a favorite fic you do like. Leave another positive comment for that author.
Don’t: Leave negative comments.
That’s the ultimate takeaway here folks. Negative comments are not helpful to fic writers. Full stop. If you feel the author needs to know you didn’t like something, particularly if it has to do with what they chose to write about, or how they chose to portray a character/pairing, I would ask you this:
Why does the author need to know?
Why does the author need to know about your personal tastes in fandom/fanfiction? Especially if it doesn’t include what they are writing. They aren’t here to cater to you and your personal tastes. That is what fic commissioning is for. That’s what tagging is for. So we all can find what we want to enjoy.
So enjoy things. And let other people enjoy things. And most importantly, let authors enjoy writing the things they feel moved to write about.
Pairing: Dean x Reader Word Count: 1,271 Warning(s): some feelings and angst in the beginning but it gets better^^ Disclaimer: I do not own Supernatural. It belongs to Erik Kripke, our god. A/n: Umm, hey guys. It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I haven’t wrote or posted anything for almost a year now. I feel so bad for letting all of you down, but I feel that I’m gaining back my writing skills. I’ll try to post at least once a week from now on. Hope you aren’t mad at me. Anyways, enough with my whining. Let’s get started, shall we? Feedback is WELCOME!! Masterpost
I tried to say. Tried to actually voice my words. My concerns and opinion. I had to do it. Had to make everything clear. I needed that like one would need to breath…
Felix just rubs his face, knowing that if Pan ever found out there will be consequences, but little did you both know, he already knew. For there he was in the window, watching you two regret what had just happen, he heard the noises , at first he thought you might have been pleasuring yourself , thinking of him, but then he heard a guys voice, and with that, he turned mad, and with that, he stares at you two, in disappointment, anger, and confusion.
“Felix what if he-”
“He’s not, if we act like none of this happen, and never talk about it again, he won’t.” Felix says.
You nod your head in agreement, but still something in your gut tells you other wise.
Peter walks away and goes into his cabin, he sits on his king chair and decides your punishment, he thinks long and hard, by the time he makes one up the sun rises, he just smiles, it was time for the games to begin.
You walk outside for breakfast, seeing the lost boys, Felix, who you try your best to ignore, and Peter who was sitting on a log eating his biscuits and eggs with some of the older lost boys who looked up to him dearly.
You decide to get some food, as you walk past him his head doesn’t turn but his eyes does, watching your every move, he notices you think before every move that you do, you fiddle with your fingers as you pick up the plate, while you’re waiting in line you can’t help but look up and no where else, oh it was so fun for Peter to see you this nervous, knowing you messed up and trying to hide it, brought joy to his twisted heart.
Once you get your food you walk over to the younger lost boys but Peter stops you.
“Y/n!” he shouts your name and you nearly drop your food.
“Y-yes Peter?” you say back trying to catch a breath.
“Why don’t you sit over here with me?”
“Oh of course Peter.” you smile and quickly sit next to him.
“How’s the food?” he says as he bites into a biscuit.
“I haven’t ate anything yet Peter.” you slowly say, watching your words.
“Oh the silliness of me, of course not, well dig in, I’m sure you will enjoy it.” he smiles as he takes an other bite.
You do the same, “This is delicious! The best biscuits I’ve eaten in a while.”
“Felix made them.” Peter says as he smirks
You were totally caught off guard nearly chocked on the what you had left in your mouth, Peter had to pat your back for support.
“Y/n are you alright?” Knowing that you clearly weren’t, you were a nervous wreck.
“Y-yeah I’m fine I just didn’t chew right probably haha.”
Peter stares at you deep in your eyes, and at that moment, he doesn’t laugh, so you think you were finally caught, you were about to die.
“You must be more careful, don’t want my favorite and only lost girl dying on me.” with that he starts to laugh and nudges your arm signaling he was joking and that means you should laugh with him, so you laugh right along with him.
Felix just cringes at the scene, you were a horrible lair, pretender, and you could’t keep calm for nothing.
After breakfast you all decided to play hide and seek, which was all you wanted to do right now, hide, you were so embarrassed, nobody knew, but you and Felix, and that was more than enough, every time someone said Felix’es name you cringed, every time someone would touch you , you’d flinch, you just wanted to sleep today off, but that would be way too suspicious, and Peter would know something was up, especially because hide and go seek was one of your favorite things to play.
“Who want’s to be captain?” Peter yell’s.
Everybody screams “ME!”
He laughs at that while his hands are on his hips, he looks at you and you fake smile.
He then turns around and pick the two youngest lost boys to be captain, one boy picks you, Peter, and Felix to be on the same team because “Everybody knows you’re all the best at hide and go seek.” which was actually true, but this made it so much worse.
As the seeker begins to count you all start to run and split up, you run deep deep into the forest and try to find the best hiding spot so that you can have time for yourself to think.
“You can do this Y/n you can do this,” You say to yourself over and over again.
“You can do what love?” Peter says as you scream and jump into his arms you were so scared.
“Oh my gosh I’m so sorry.” as you back away from him.
“You alright love? You seem a bit jumpy.” he looks in your eyes.
“Nope, I’m fine.”
“Did you get enough sleep last night?” he asked
Uh-oh this is it, you’re dead you think, you have to have been caught for sure.
“Uhh, ohh, uhh, uhm” as you stutter you words, not knowing what to say.
“You know because you didn’t eat dinner with us last night, you were tired right?” Peter asked you.
“YES! that’s it I was really tired, you have me working the early shifts so when dinner comes I’m just so tired, you know how it is, you are king of the island.” you smile.
“Yes I do know what you mean, I also know everything that goes on this island.” he winks at you
“Shit.” you say in your head.
“Can you believe that the younger lost boys have been sneaking Hook’s rum?”
(sigh) you let out the breath you were holding, Peter really must have no idea you think, and that calms your nerves.
“Wow really? That’s just terrible.” you say.
“I know I can’t believe them.” he puts his hands on his hips.
“Well they do look up to you Peter, and you are a very bad influence.” you jokingly laugh as you say that.
“I am not bad, I am wild.” as he folds his arms.
You just laugh at him, he was very attractive when you and him played fight like this.
“You are very bad Peter.” you say in a flirtatious way.
“I can show you bad Y/n” as he comes close to you he rubs your face, and he is about to kiss you but then a lost boy tags both of you.
“GOT EM I GOT THE LAST TWO WE WON!” the lost boys shouts.
Peter looks at you and smiles “We should head back to camp love.”
“Good that.” you say as you put up a thumb.
Back at the campsite everybody was hyped, begging Peter for an other round.
“Alright alright, this time, Y/n and I will be captain.”
“What really? I can be captain?”
“Of course love.” Peter winks at you.
Felix was getting pretty jealous that you and Peter have been getting close all day, so with that he asked if he could be on your team.
“What? Felix no I’m picking who I want” you whisper to him.
“But I don’t want to be on Peter’s team.” he whispers back.
“Why not?” you whisper louder
“Because!” Felix yells.
IS everything okay over there?” Peter asks from afar, knowing exactly what you were talking about because he knows everything.
“We are fine.”you say as you walk to Peter, “Now let’s start picking our team members.” you smile at him.
He just smiles and he goes first, which means you’re last to pick.
Peter doesn’t pick Felix to be on his team, so that means he’s on your team.
“And Felix.” you say as you roll your eyes.
Peter just smirks, he knows how awkward it is for you.
Round 2 starts and you once again start to run, but Felix was running with you.
“What are you doing?” you yell at him.
“I’m running I cant run?”
“Not with me!” You push him and he falls.
“Have a nice FALL!” you yell as you run deeper into the forest.
Sooner than later Felix finds you and brings you closer into him but you push him back.
“What the hell?”
“”What do you mean?” Felix says.
“I thought we agreed that what we did was a mistake?”
“It was but now that we did it, doesn’t mean we can’t still mess around.” as he pulls you into him once again.
“Ew no Felix! That was a mistake, we can never do it, or anything else like that again.”
“Psh man whatever you suck.” Felix leaves you.
“And you’re an asshole.” as you start to run to another direction.
As you run you run into Peter, and your elbow hits his chest.
“Ouch!” you say as you hug your arm and start to bend down.
“Love are you alright?” he holds you up so you are no longer bending down, staring staring straight into his eyes.
“I’-I think so.”
“Good, because I caught the captain, I win.” he smiles.
You laugh and hit his shoulder, he laughs and rubs your arm all the way back to the campsite.
“Thank for helping me walk back to the campsite Peter, it was really nice of you.”
“No problem love.” he winks and leaves you to go do something important.
With that you start to cook dinner, it was your turn to make it, and you were looking forward to it.
You made grilled cheese with tomato soup, your favorite, you liked cooking sometimes, it was a distraction, and plus Peter never told you what to cook, he always trusted your cooking from day one, so you totally got to be the boss in the kitchen, and if anyone wanted to help, Peter also made you in charge of them.
You were almost done when you heard foot steps come in,
You didn’t see anyone so you ignored it, thinking it was a mistake .
Then your heard a pan crash “EEEk!” you scream.
Then you hear the little lost boys laugh.
“You guys you can’t do that in the kitchen!”
“Felix said to do it.” a younger lost boy said.
Your face got red.
“Oh really?” you hurried up and finished cooking so you could have a word with Felix but then you bump right into Peter.
“Peter! Sorry I can’t talk I have to go find-”
“Felix, I know.”
“Yeah he made the lost boys play a horrible trick on me I totally could have hurt myself.” you said with anger.
“Don’t think about it too much love.” he kisses your forehead and takes you back to the kitchen to help set out the dinner. Why was he so nice? I mean he has always been nice to you, but he has been extra nice.
At dinner you sat with Peter, totally over Felix and never wanted to see him again, he was just mad because you didn’t want to hook up with him again, how childish you thought.
“I have something to show you, so hurry up okay?” Peter tells you.
“Okay Peter.” you smile, not thinking about it too much.
You and Peter head to his cabin.
“Whoa this is really cool.” you say as you start to wonder and look around.
“You think? It’s pretty simple to me.” he says as he sits on his king chair with his arms folded and legs wide open as he slouches.
You turn to look at him and start to giggle.
He sits up, “What’s so funny?”
“You have a king chair?” you question him.
“Indeed, every king needs his chair.” his says.
“Of course.” you say as you roll your eyes and laugh again. “Peter why’d you bring me here?”
“You said you always wanted to see my cabin did you not?” he questions you.
“I did.” you say as you wonder around, picking up things, smelling them, touching things.
Peter than watches you, he admires you, and then he thinks, its the perfect time.
“Yes Peter?” as you turn your head to him.
“Come sit on my bed with me I have something to tell you.”
You walk over to his bed with him and wait for him to say whatever he needs to say.
“You know, you’re the best lost girl ever.”
“I’m the only lost girl Peter.” you say with a laugh.
“True, but you’re my most prized possession, you never lie, you’re honest, loyal, I can always count on you.”
You cringe at that, “Ohhh..”
“I know that you would never betray me, and with that I need to ask you something.” as he holds your hand.
“Uh okay..” you say hesitantly.
“Will you be my queen?” he asked you.
“Q-queen?!” you almost scream.
“Indeed love, you’re the only one I can truly count on, you and Felix.”
“I…” as you try to get the words out, Peter says it for you.
“You and Felix had sex?” Peter says as he flex’es his arms muscles, signing that he was getting angry.
Your eyes open, “How did you know?”
“Tell me something Y/n, did you really think I didn’t?”
You nod your head no, you knew it, you knew that he knew this whole time, you just didn’t want to admit it.
“I’m sorry Peter.” as your head falls down because tears were coming out of your eyes.
“What do you think should be your punishment?” he says darkly.
“I don’t know just please, please don’t kill me.”
Peter looks confused. “I would never kill you,” then he smirks twistedl-y, “however, torture, is a always one of my favorite past times.”
Your head shots up “What are you gonna do to me?” you start to cry.
: Warning, SMUT OVER LOAD :
“Put this on.” he gives you a blindfold. You do as you were told.
“Don’t make a peep, if you did, there will be consequences.” he whispers in your ear. You just nod, agreeing.
You start to feel him slide his finger tips up and down your arms, so many thoughts were running through your head but were soon interrupted by the attraction of his lips to your neck, you let a gasp but then quickly put your hands over your mouth hoping Peter wouldn’t hear, but of course he did, you could feel his smirk on your neck.
“What was that I heard?” he asked.
You quickly shake your head no but he put your hands over your head and ties them up. With that he pushes you on his bed.
You start to squirm because you think you know where this was going.
He kisses your neck once again, leaving little red patches all over it., He bites, then kisses, and sucks all over your neck, you are trying to keep it all in.
He then goes down and kisses your stomach, kissing upwards leading to your breast, he kisses them softly, removing your bra and putting your whole breast in his mouth, sucking and licking it, you wrap your legs on his waist and he starts to rub your other breast playing with your nipple.
He then starts to take off your pants, seeing that you wore a lace thong got him pretty excited and making his eye brow shoot up.
“What a beautiful sight to see.” he says as his kisses you down low with your thong still on. You squirm trying not to make a noise, it was so hard, Peter was good at what he did, very good.
He then removes your thong fully and starts to lick your area ever so slightly each lick making you want him more and more.
He licked you til he thought you deserved more pleasure, he then lay his tongue right at your area not moving just watching your face expression, your make a frown noticing that he is obviously doing this on purpose, with that he makes a laugh and quickly takes off his clothes.
He gets on top of you and slides into you ever so slowly, you bite your lip to the point where it starts to bleed, Peter licks the blood off your lips.
“Now my lost girl, you may talk.” as he takes off your blindfold.
“Oh fuck!” you scream.
He starts to stroke into you and you start to moan and he starts to whisper into your ear.
“What?” you question.
“Don’t act like you didn’t hear me.”
“You are.” as you cum already.
“Who can make you cum faster?
You thought Peter would let you come down from your high but he keeps on stroking.
“Who can make you scream louder?”
“And who can get you wet without even touching you?”
“Scream my name.”
“But Peter the lost boys are right outside.”
“That’s the point love.”
You scream Peter’s name multiple times, you also cum a few more times as well.. Everybody heard you, including Felix.
Once you and Peter were done, he un tied your hands and let them go, noticing you had rope burns on your wrist, it was bruised up with little blood droplets. He then kissed them while you still lay down on his bed completely naked.
He gets a shirt from his closet and lets you put it on, you do.
“Thanks.” you say.
He looks at you and says “You’re my lost girl, nobody ever touches you the way I do, if they do, I’ll cut their hands off.” he winks at you.
“Yes Peter as you kiss his cheek and lay down on his bed.
Eeek love you so much for uploading so many Blake's performances and vids😍. Can you upload recent and Grammy ones too? Thank you!
Pleasure! As I’ve said, me only becoming a fan last year has totally limited the amount of videos I have access to, so… Having said that, there’s PLENTY on my site to download currently. Search away, check tags, or literally just through the lists per era. https://shefani-archive.info/performances
If you can’t be bothered, here’s a list of all Blake performances I’ve uploaded thus far. And all that I have, frankly… I need to still upload Every Time I Hear Tha Song from The Voice, and upgrade his SNL performances but then I’m all out, and it’s time to go over into cataloguing and uploading interviews, lol.

I’m on the upside toward 30, and I’m way too old to still be on tumblr.
I’m a barista at Starbucks, I am working on actually finishing a novel, and I also do freelance writing work.
I travel a lot. Recently I went to the UK, in October I’m heading to Disneyland, I’m thinking about a trip to Machu Picchu this winter, and I’m also contemplating a trip to Amsterdam (and to revisit Paris) next spring.
I have a bookstagram and a travelgram which I love dearly. You can find me @ ashlyreads and ashlytravels.
I just bought a Voltswagen Beetle Convertible because it’s been my dream car for 5 years and I said fuck it DOING IT.
I once willingly jumped out of a plane.
I will literally point out every dog I see if I’m with someone.
I recently started cross stitching again. It’s something I enjoyed when I was younger, and I’m enjoying it just as much now.
I have OCD and depression.
Phone call: My mom
Text: A Tumblr post about The X Files to my two closest friends.
Food: Lucky Charms (Cereal)
Book: Aquaman, Vol. 1: The Drowning by Dan Abnett
Purchase: A book.
Song I listened to: “Love Always Remains” by MGMT
Reason to be excited: I’m still excited about my new car!
TV show: It’s Always Sunny in Philidalphia
Obsession: Books (always!)
Happiest: Oh my gosh how can I pick! Here’s one at random: Driving the 101 in California–windows down surrounded by coasts and mountains. It was bliss.
Saddest: It’s kind of cliche, but not being with a person that I care about because our timing was always off. I wish I could go back and make things different, but such is life.
Strangest: This one time I was at a music fest–some context: I’m kind of a hippy and dress all out for Summerfest–I had a flowery headband in and was having a few beers with a few friends and out of NOWHERE this guy walks up to me, doesn’t say anything, sticks a leaf in my headband, steps back to admire it, gives me two thumbs up, and walks away never to be seen again. It was one of the strangest and most wonderful experiences of my life.
Scariest: Skydidving. It was actually awesome, but I don’t think I’ve ever been as scared as when I was sitting on the edge of an airplane 13,000 feet above the ground.
Funniest: One time a friend and I went out for margaritas. On our walk back to our apartments, we decided to walk through our College Campus’ graveyard. She had to pee REALLY bad, and I somehow convinced her going in the graveyard was a great idea. It was probably more one of those you had to be there moments, but I still laugh about it often. BONUS: The same friend and I were on a mini road to trip to Cincinnati (Ohio) and we came up to this REALLY BIG and UGLY building. We were sitting at a stop light and I said something like I wonder what that building is and my friend really quietly and cryptically just whispered, “scientology.” Her and I have had some good times!
Exciting: Finally traveling to the UK, especially London. I’ve wanted to go since I was young and finally at 25 I made it there!
Proudest: Graduating college.
Boring: Anytime I fly. Flying is so boring, and I hate it.
Not living up to the standards and goals I have for myself.
Garbage disposals and blenders.

Wow, that was a lot! I actually really enjoyed this though! Now, I tag:
I roll over and I’m greeted by my best friend of 10 years beautiful sleeping face. I smile and stroke her cheek with my thumb admiring God’s beautiful chocolate creation. Her plump chocolate lips , perfectly shaped almond eyes , full round face , high cheekbones ,long eyelashes, perfect eyebrows. And her eyes? Man don’t even get me started on those big brown eyes.
They touch your soul without her even looking at you.
They lighten up the darkest room just like her smile.
I’ve seen them loose their color when she’s sad. I’ve seen them turn the darkest shade of black when she’s angry.
I’ve seen them glisten when she’s scared.
I’ve seen them in every type of emotion and I still them. I love her.
As I’m laying my head on the pillow admiring her wonderful features her eyes shoot open.
“Woah Justin back the Fuck up kid. You act like you’ve never seen my face before. ” Y/N says sitting up off the bed.
“Sorry I guess I woke up close to you. ” I say lying getting off the bed. I stretch my legs out . “Hungry?” I ask her and she nods vigorously
“Dumb ass question your fat ass is always hungry .” I say. She chucks a pillow at me.
“IHOP?” I suggest knowing she wouldn’t decline. Her smile grows wide.
“Yes!” She grins widely.
“Alright get showered and get dressed.” I say walking to my other bathroom. I smile at the fact that I get to spend all this time with her now. When I was on tour I felt so far away from her. Since we were kids I’ve spent almost everyday with her.
“We’re ready to order” Y/N says calling our waitress over.
“Yes I want the blueberry pancakes with eggs and bacon. I want my eggs scrambled with mushrooms,spinach and cheese . Oh and can you add 2 more pancakes to that plate.“ She smiles at the waitress.
“Don’t you think that’s a little much for-” I cut her off
“Don’t say shit about her appetite please. Now I’ll have the short stack with hash browns and eggs with grits” I say closing my menu. The waitress takes them and walks away.
“You saved her ass Justin cause I was about to snap” Y/N says opening her snapchat to take pictures. I look to the dude because someone screamed my name. Soon enough our food came out.
“There’s this carnival I want to go to tonight. Can we go!?” My best friend ask excitedly.
I laughed. She’s such a child at heart. “Sure but I’ll have to sign a few things and take pictures” I say.
“Yay!” She screams stuffing her cute face with eggs.
We walk-around the carnival eating a funnel cake
“Y/N…so I was thinking maybe we could go out of town together.”
“What like Alabama?” She ask ripping a giant piece of funnel cake.
“No…like Barcelona, Hawaii, Jamaica.” I say looking at her. She stops in her tracks and looks at a big black bear.
“Eeek I want that!” She screeches. She grabs my hand running to the booth.
“What do I have to do to win the bear?” I ask pulling a 20 out of my pocket. The man explains the game. I roughly throw the baseball knocking down the glasses in all the rows. Y/N jumps up and down screaming. I grab the bear and walk away. She looks at me with her big brown eyes that I love so much .
“What?” I ask looking at her. She smiles
“Nothing. I’m just really glad you’re my best friend” she says grabbing my hand. We walk to the tilt a whirl. We hand someone the bear and get on.
Y/N is laughing as we spin around in the air. I grab her hand tightly closing my eyes.
“Fuck no. I’ll never do this bullshit again.” I scream .
We get off and she’s still laughing at me. I push her playfully as she grabs her bear.
“Can we get on the big wheel?” She ask me smiling. I nod. We step into the basket and put the between us. We take off.
“Y/N I really need to tell you something.” I say looking in her eyes.
“I know we’ve been best friends for so long…and we’ve done just about everything together. Well what I’m trying to say is I like you…I want to be with you.” I ramble. She smiles at me
“Justin I want to be with you too but our friendship. Wbatvhaoons if we break up. I don’t wanna loose you as my best friend.” She says
“You won’t and we won’t break up. Because 4 years ago….” I pause. “4 years ago I noticed that I was in love with you.” Those brown eyes that I loved lost there color once more.
“What’s wrong” I ask her
She smiles “I love you too.” She says wiping her eyes. I lean in and grab her face pulling her in and kissing her. She kisses back as we reach the top the ride jolts to a stop.
“Justin I’ll be your girlfriend. And yes we can go on vacation together. Anywhere you wanna go.”
“I love you”
Kyah ; ; u like that tummy kissing pic that furaitsu drew? My gosh that I LIVE for the concept of genos showering Sai in affection while Sai is all shy and blushy eeek Reading those tags u wrote I completely agree 😭😭😭😭
FAM SAMEE??!?!? That tummy pic gets me so W E A K. I’m so here for Genos just decorating that egg in so much love and appreciation to the point that Saitama just feels so bashful from it all. And I think it’s especially cute just based off of the fact that Saitama has been alone for the past few years and has kinda been detached in emotion, and it’s just so precious how Genos can get these genuine reactions from Saitama. He’s so unaccustomed to being touched and treated so delicately like that and hnnngghhh I just love the blushy egg so much!!!!! 😍
