eyes welling up again

Unorthodox

Request from Anon: Can you do a short story where the reader tells Draco that she’s pregnant, but she’s a Hufflepuff and Draco is scared to tell his parents? Please? Thank you!

Thanks for the request, this was cool to write!

“Draco,” You shook your boyfriend’s shoulder as you found him in the library. He whipped around, noticing the tears streaming down your face immediately. “What are you doing out of the hospital wing?” He asked with worry on his face as he stood up to put his hands on your shoulders. “We need to talk.” You whispered, your eyes beginning to well up again. You noticed Pansy and Blaise look up with confusion on their face as they shot each other a glance, you couldn’t tell what it meant but you also didn’t care. Draco nodded as he left his friends to follow you out into the hallway. Draco had made you go to see Madam Pomfrey this morning because you’d been sick, and nearly passed out. You’d never expected it’d be this, though, and you had no idea how you were going to deal with it; you and Draco were only seventeen.

“What’s wrong, love?” Draco asked, his tone urgent yet confused. You took a gulp of air, taking a few moments to collect what you were going to say, just like Madam Pomfrey had done for you. “I’m pregnant, Draco.” Draco gulped, looking down at the floor. You saw a small tear escape his eye and saw him sniffle a bit. “Are you sure?” He asked, looking you in the eye for the first time. “Madam Pomfrey told me this afternoon. I’m so sorry.” You replied, finally collapsing into tears. For the first time, you’d finally let yourself properly cry; you’d teared up and let a few tears escape but you hadn’t fully broken down. Draco held you in his arms, rubbing your back as he remained silent, resting his head against your neck. 

“What are we going to do? My parents will go insane when they find out. You know how they reacted when I told them you were a Hufflepuff. I don’t want to get rid of it, we made this, I’ll love it more than anything, but my family - they’ll never talk to me again.” Draco uttered out, and for the first time today you thought that maybe this wasn’t such a terrible thing. “I don’t want to get rid of it either, but this was going to happen somewhere along the line, right?” Draco nodded his head, his eyes red from crying. “Then I think that after your parents realise this was going to happen anyway, they’ll accept it, even if I’m a Hufflepuff. Besides, I’m sure Narcissa will love having a mini Draco around.” You try to convince Draco and yourself as well. 

“But I’m scared Y/N..” Draco trailed off, beginning to tear up again. “It’s okay love, because I’ll be right there beside you the whole time. And guess what?” Draco shrugged his shoulders, wiping his eyes. You took his hand, placing it on your flat stomach that you’d now found out was carrying your future. “They’ll be here, too.” Draco cracked a smile, pulling you into his arms. “This is really real, isn’t it?” Draco whispered into your ear as he placed a kiss on your neck. You sighed, wrapping your arms around his neck as you held him. “Indeed.”

“I love you, Y/N.” Draco declares, pulling away so that you can look each other in the eyes. “I love you too Draco.” Draco bends down, placing a kiss on your abdomen. “I love you, too.” 

Reader: this part made me cry

Me: *also crying because A) me too and B) there isn’t really a stronger sign that you did it right than actual tears from a reader*

“P-please you have to help him,” you pleaded through your sobs, “Everything’s gone wrong. Please.”

The tall one, Sam, rested a hand on your shoulder telling you to compose yourself. You took a few deep breaths trying to stop the overflow of tears. You sat down on the nearest flat surface as the two brothers looked at you.

“Alright now tell us what happened,” the one with the shorter hair, Dean, said.

You took a feel breath in before speaking.

“Me… Me and my friends were up in this mountain to be with our friend Josh, who’s sisters went missing the previous year. We thought it was a way to connect but… It turned out Josh just wanted to pull a horrific prank on is as revenge. But… But what we didn’t know…” You eyes began to well up again as the memories returned.

Sam kneeled down in front of you gingerly egging you on.

You took another deep breath then continued.

“What we didn’t know was that there were… Wendigos on the mountain. They had been here since the 50s when a mine caved in and everyone inside began to eat each other. We then realized that one of the wendigos was one of Josh’s sisters, Hannah… She and their other sister, Beth, fell down into the mines Beth died and Hannah dug up her body and ate her.”

The two brothers looked to each other and then to you again. You began to shake like a leaf as all the horrible memories from that night came flooding back like a tidal wave of horrors.

“Is that all?” Dean asked.

You shook your head sullenly, “No… Hannah had taken Josh down to the mines. Me and two of my friends went down to get him but Hannah appeared and drag him away screaming.”

Josh’s horrified and hopeless calls for help began to play in your mind.

“I tried to go back for him … I didn’t want to leave him alone again. But they wouldn’t let me save him. We went back to what used to be Josh’s Family’s lodge but it was overrun by wendigos. We managed to get everyone outside and blow the place up. Killing every last one of them. Including Hannah.”

“And you think your friend is still down there?” Sam asked.

You nodded, “he’s alive I know he is, I’ve seen him… But…”

“But what?” Asked Dean.

“His face… The teeth… The eyes….. He’s Turing into one of those things. He’s not gone yet but he will be soon. Please you have to help him. Please save him. Please bring him home safely.”

The brothers looked to each other and nodded. They turned and walked to the shiny black Impala. Dean lifted open the trunk revealing a wide array of weaponry and spiritual objects. Each brother lifted out a bag and slung it over his shoulder. They walked past you but stopped and turned to your direction.

“Don’t worry, (Y/N) we’ll get him back safely,” Sam said, “you just wait here. It’s far too dangerous-”

“Uh-uh, no way. I’m coming too.” You demanded. “He’s my best friend and I love him. I’m not leaving him behind again.”

The duo looked at you then to each other the back to you again. Your determined expression showed no sign you were backing down. They both slumped their shoulders in defeat and handed you a weapon and flashlight.

“Alright let’s do some minin’”

The one thing giving me hope is that Danielle has yet to tweet/instagram her goodbye like so many have done in the past (Nina, Leah, etc.) Plus, if (or when) Davina does come back, I’d love the writers to parallel this like they’ve done for other scenes between s2 & 3. Oh, the vid I could make if that happened…

The hallways were so big, the labs were so big, everything was just so big. And for a week old newborn Pearl who hadn’t yet had the chance to really be anywhere but her Diamond’s office, the poor thing was…lost.

She had no idea where to go and she had things to deliver, but she couldn’t go back and tell her Diamond she was lost. Her ‘sibling’ would laugh at her and her Diamond wouldn’t trust her with a task again.

Her eyes threatened to well up. “Where do I go…”

arthur-tristan-kingsmen  asked:

"STOP PRETENDING TO BE OK!" (bartender hit me up with some angst good sir)

Send “STOP PRETENDING TO BE OK!” for my muse’s reaction to yours yelling this at them

“I have to! You don’t understand! If I break once, I might cut the connections I have! People come to me for help, my parents too! If I show that I’m not okay, that I have things I wish I could say. I might show that I can’t be the one to help everyone. They might push me away, thinking I can’t help anyone again!” Tears welled up in his eyes. “I have to pretend, I have to keep pretending to be okay Arthur! Who would hold me if I’m holding everyone else?” he exclaimed before turning his head away as a tear slipped down his cheek. “Who would listen to me if I’m listening to everyone else? I can’t afford losing anyone, I can’t afford not being there for the ones that need me the most. You know I can’t help myself. I need to help everyone. I need to help people! I have to push my own feelings away to focus on the ones I love and care about. I have to be there for them! I have to take care of everyone!”

Peridot fanfiction

Peridot grunted.  Please… go away….  Her eyes watered as she tried to concentrate.  Her hand flexed and finally it returned its normal shape.  

“Peri?  Everything okay?”  Lapis called into the barn, “You’re missing Pining Hearts….”  

“Y-yeah, I…  I wanted to look for something, but I can’t find it. I’ll be up in a minute.”  Peridot checked herself, and her body one more time. She then joined Lapis in their spot for watching TV.  She could hardly focus on the episode her thoughts worried about her situation.

It’s been getting worse…  I’m…  I’m corrupted.  Peridot bit her lip.  She felt her eyes well up again.  

She couldn’t pinpoint when exactly it started.  It started out as a small spot on her arm that slowly began to grow.  The larger the darker spot grew, the more she covered her arm with a wrapping, not wanting to worry Lapis Lazuli.  Peridot looked to her barn-mate.  Peridot felt warmth rise to her cheeks as she looked away.  The dimunitive gem had grown to admire Lapis. Given everything that Lapis had suffered through, she appeared to have minimal damage. At least physically.  Lapis remained emotionally segregated.  Slowly she was opening up to Peridot, on Lapis’s terms.  

Peridot respected that. She knew better than to push Lapis’ buttons.  

The two gems retired after their several episodes of Camp Pining Hearts.  Lapis had taken to sleeping.  It seemed to help Lapis in her recovery.  Once Peridot knew Lapis was asleep, she also bedded down.  Lapis opting to sleep in a hammock.  

Peridot never mastered getting into the hammock.  She gave up after falling out worse and worse each time.  Lapis even tried to help by tying Peridot into the hammock.  Peridot determined it was an unsuitable method of sleeping.  She gathered a bunch of hay on the other end of the barn and curled up there.  

N-….Not again….  Peridot thought.  She hissed and gripped her arms as thoughts started to cloud her normally logical mind. The thoughts didn’t make any sense. Peridot thrashed about, it felt like the temperature was rising.  She hissed in pain and rolled off her pile of hay.  

“S-stability… sh-shaky…..” She clenched her fists.  “O-outside….”  She scrabbled clumsily out of the barn.  Things got hazy after that.  

Xxxxxxx

“P…Peridot?”

Peridot groaned and rolled over… and right out of the tree and onto the ground, face first.  Peridot hissed and rubbed her nose.  

“WHAT?!”  She growled loudly.   “What, what what what?!”

She then realized that she completely yelled at Lapis.  Peridot whimpered and curled herself up as small as possible, drawing her knees up to her chest.

“Peridot, what’s wrong, what happened?”  Lapis knelt beside the green gem.

Peridot and looked away and muttered something along the lines of “nothing.”

Lapis rose an eyebrow to her.  Peridot sighed as she pushed herself to stand and head towards the barn in silence.

Lapis caught up to her again inside the barn, watching Peridot fiddle with her tablet.  Lapis took a few moments, but then decided to leave the gem alone.

Peridot grumbled as she heard Lapis leave her area.  Peridot flopped over and curled up tightly, scratching at her arm lightly.  

It was unlike Peridot to not be bopping around the barn and making a mess of one thing only to make a meep-morp of another.  Lapis rubbed her chin as she thought more.

The sun set on another awkward day of mostly silence.  Peridot kept herself unmoving and relatively entertained with her tablet.  Lapis finally retired into her hammock with Pumpkin in her arms, “Good night Peridot.”

Peridot winced, she could hear the disappointment in her voice.  She didn’t return the affection though, which hurt her chest.  It felt tight as she waited for another hour or so, to ensure that Lapis was asleep.  Peridot sat up and unwrapped her arm and checked the corruption.  It’s spreading more…  She ran her other hand and then gasped, another splotch of darker green corruption was now on the other arm.  The green gem felt her eyes water.

Lapis awoke to the familiar sound of paint cans clattering.  She sat upright immediately to find Peridot’s treasured paint cans shuffling.  Pumpkin was still awake in her lap so it wasn’t the pet fruit.  Peridot poked her head out.  “Morning!”  She said with a wide smile.  

Though as she climbed out there was a new article of clothing on her.  A long sleeved flannel shirt in a blue-plaid pattern.  

Lapis blinked at the new addition, but Peridot seemed to be back to normal.  Peridot grabbed a few cans and seemed to start to work, which was making her meep-morps or some sort of crazy gadget to show off.  

Things seemed to be back to normal as the two puttered around the garden, the barn all day.  As the sun began to set, they settled into their routine of watching a few episodes of Camp Pining Hearts.  

The two were only into their second episode when Lapis heard something rare, it was Peridot’s soft snoring. It was highly unusual for Peridot to fall asleep during Camp Pining Hearts.  Lapis shut the TV off and gathered her up into her arms and brought her into the hammock.  Lapis cradled the smaller woman and laid down to sleep.

Peri slowly opened her eyes. Things were blurry at first, but she slowly stirred.  She quickly realized as things moved, she was somehow in the hammock, and that Lapis’ arm was around her.  Lapis still seemed to be asleep.  Peri began to panic, looking down that her shirt was still on her.  The more she stirred, the more the hammock began to rock to and fro.  Pumpkin awoke then and started barking which only added to Peri’s panic.  Lapis slowly began to open her eyes and see the cluster of motion going on.

The hammock overturned. Peri landed on her face, and Pumpkin on top of her.  Lapis instinctively outstretched her wings and landed more gracefully beside Peridot.

“Peridot!  Are you okay?”  Lapis helped the other up.

“Yeah….”  She rubbed her face and then gasped as her shoulder was exposed, with dark bands of corruption showing.  She grabbed the shirt and quickly pulled it over her.  

“…Peridot, what is going on with you?”  Lapis grabbed the woman firmly.

Peridot refused to meet her gaze.  “Nothing.”

Lapis shook her.  “You’re lying to me.  What is going on with you?” She moved to try and tug the shirt up and over Peri’s head.  The smaller gem immediately fought back.  She whapped Lapis in the face with her small hands. She stopped as something else seemed to take hold of her.  Peridot hissed loudly.

Lapis stopped.  That wasn’t a normal Peridot hiss.  She stopped what she was doing.  Peri’s normal hisses where more in annoyance, and less than threatening, this sounded like something else.  

Lapis took a few steps back.


Added more.  I will try to figure out how to post in chapters/parts when I get home from work.  Enjoy

Daily preferences #95

You were watching a film on TV, sat next to your best friend: Park Jimin.

The atmosphere was calm and so enjoyable until your phone vibrated on the leather couch, making a huge noise.

Your eyes shifted from the TV to your phone’s screen were you could see your ex boyfriend’s number being displayed.

You took your phone in your hands and read his text.

“I’m so sorry. Please come back. I love you babe.”

You felt Jimin leaning on you and before you could have locked your phone he intervened.

“Just don’t answer him. He deserve it after all the sleepless nights he made you live. He doesn’t deserve any other chance. Please tell me you will never give it to him.”

“Hm.” Your head fell down as tears welled up in your eyes; once again.

“Promise it to your best friend?” He leant a little more on you so you could see his smiling face.

“I promise.” You somehow smiled widely though you couldn’t swallow back this tear that fell by itself on your cheek.

“Dean?” you whispered, your voice small in the pressing silence of the bunker. Dean shifted under his blankets, still fast asleep. Tentatively, you stepped inside his bedroom and gently shook him. His instincts kicked in and he jerked away. One of Dean’s hands wrapped tight around your wrist while the other pulled out the knife under his pillow. You squeaked in fear and almost instantly Dean let go, the fierce look gone from his eyes as he looked up at you.

“Y/N? What’s wrong?” he asked, reaching for you again. You shook your head as your eyes welled up with tears. It only took seconds before the dam broke and you were crying freely. Dean reached for you once more, his touch gentle as he pulled you to lay in the bed with him. Your tears soaked the cotton of his pajama shirt, but he never said a word. He simply stroked your hair and ran his hand over your back, letting you cry against his chest.

‘’Sweetheart I’m right here’’

‘’I know, Dean’’You whispered, legs tucked up to your chest. 

‘’Then talk to me, darling’’He pleaded. His hand ran through your locks and rested on the small of your back where he drawed soothing circles. 

‘’I don’t wanna, Dean’’You choked out as you began to cry again. Dean’s eyes welled up as he swallowed down his own tears. 

‘’Okay. Come here then’’

The two were only into their second episode when Lapis heard something rare, it was Peridot’s soft snoring. It was highly unusual for Peridot to fall asleep during Camp Pining Hearts.  Lapis shut the TV off and gathered her up into her arms and brought her into the hammock.  Lapis cradled the smaller woman and laid down to sleep.

Peri slowly opened her eyes. Things were blurry at first, but she slowly stirred.  She quickly realized as things moved, she was somehow in the hammock, and that Lapis’ arm was around her.  Lapis still seemed to be asleep.  Peri began to panic, looking down that her shirt was still on her.  The more she stirred, the more the hammock began to rock to and fro.  Pumpkin awoke then and started barking which only added to Peri’s panic.  Lapis slowly began to open her eyes and see the cluster of motion going on.

The hammock overturned. Peri landed on her face, and Pumpkin on top of her.  Lapis instinctively outstretched her wings and landed more gracefully beside Peridot.

“Peridot!  Are you okay?”  Lapis helped the other up.

“Yeah….”  She rubbed her face and then gasped as her shoulder was exposed, with dark bands of corruption showing.  She grabbed the shirt and quickly pulled it over her.  

“…Peridot, what is going on with you?”  Lapis grabbed the woman firmly.

Peridot refused to meet her gaze.  “Nothing.”

Lapis shook her. “You’re lying to me.  What is going on with you?”  She moved to try and tug the shirt up and over Peri’s head. The smaller gem immediately fought back. She whapped Lapis in the face with her small hands.  She stopped as something else seemed to take hold of her.  Peridot hissed loudly.

Lapis stopped.  That wasn’t a normal Peridot hiss.  She stopped what she was doing.  Peri’s normal hisses where more in annoyance, and less than threatening, this sounded like something else.  

Lapis took a few steps back.

Peridot then realized what happened and clapped her hand over her mouth.  She turned and ran out of the barn on all fours as she was known to do.  

Something was driving her further and further away.  Lapis flew after her, but the petite gem was rather agile even when she got into the underbrush. Lapis lost sight of her easily. Lapis growled and turned back to the barn. She looked around and found Peridot’s tablet.

She struggled but finally placed a call online call. Connie answered to her surprise.

“Lapis! What’s up?”

“I think something is wrong with Peridot. We need Steven’s help…”


Peridot lifted her head as she heard familiar voices.  The Gems…. I can’t let them see me like this…. She continued through the brush, though the rustling of the leaves drew them closer to her . Peridot ran out of forest to duck into, she had popped out the other side, and was met with Pearl.

“Peridot!” The tall gem dove to grab her. Peridot leapfrogged over Pearl and still looked for cover. She was then wrapped up and entangled in Amethyst’s whip. She writhed about. Her entire being shook and tingled. The green gem hissed again.

“Whoa… P-dot, calm down.” Amethyst approached.

“No! Let me go! Y-y-you CLOD!” Peri hadn’t used that insult in some time.

“You’re the one acting like a clod!” Lapis landed beside the growing group. Garnet bringing up the rear, carrying Steven with her.

Peridor wriggled herself free of the whip.  Her body slowly changing, getting larger and scales starting to take shape on her arms and shoulders.  Peridot grabbed the whip and hissed.  She snapped it in the other direction and flinging Amethyst.  

“Peridot no!”  Steven cried.  He had seen corruption before, images of Jasper haunted his mind.  “Let us help you!”

Steven’s voice seemed to snap Peridot out of her anger.  She looked down to her clawed hands and the spreading scales.  She whimpered and covered her face.  Her body now about as tall as Lapis.  Instinctively, Peridot curled up again.

“P-Peridot….”  Lapis looked over her barn-mate.  Shocked at all the changes, she had never seen corruption first hand.  She was worried and moved closer.  

“Lapis, be careful…” Pearl warned.  

“It’s okay…”  She knealt beside Peridot, wrapping an arm around her and resting a hand on a green, scaled shoulder.  “Steven, can you… can you fix her?”


Adding more later.  Enjoy.

Peridot Fanfic

Peridot grunted.  Please… go away….  Her eyes watered as she tried to concentrate.  Her hand flexed and finally it returned its normal shape.  

“Peri?  Everything okay?”  Lapis called into the barn, “You’re missing Pining Hearts….”  

“Y-yeah, I…  I wanted to look for something, but I can’t find it. I’ll be up in a minute.”  Peridot checked herself, and her body one more time. She then joined Lapis in their spot for watching TV.  She could hardly focus on the episode her thoughts worried about her situation.

It’s been getting worse…  I’m…  I’m corrupted.  Peridot bit her lip.  She felt her eyes well up again.  

She couldn’t pinpoint when exactly it started.  It started out as a small spot on her arm that slowly began to grow.  The larger the darker spot grew, the more she covered her arm with a wrapping, not wanting to worry Lapis Lazuli.  Peridot looked to her barn-mate.  Peridot felt warmth rise to her cheeks as she looked away.  The dimunitive gem had grown to admire Lapis. Given everything that Lapis had suffered through, she appeared to have minimal damage. At least physically.  Lapis remained emotionally segregated.  Slowly she was opening up to Peridot, on Lapis’s terms.  

Peridot respected that. She knew better than to push Lapis’ buttons.  

The two gems retired after their several episodes of Camp Pining Hearts.  Lapis had taken to sleeping.  It seemed to help Lapis in her recovery.  Once Peridot knew Lapis was asleep, she also bedded down.  Lapis opting to sleep in a hammock.  

Peridot never mastered getting into the hammock.  She gave up after falling out worse and worse each time.  Lapis even tried to help by tying Peridot into the hammock.  Peridot determined it was an unsuitable method of sleeping.  She gathered a bunch of hay on the other end of the barn and curled up there.  

N-….Not again….  Peridot thought.  She hissed and gripped her arms as thoughts started to cloud her normally logical mind. The thoughts didn’t make any sense. Peridot thrashed about, it felt like the temperature was rising.  She hissed in pain and rolled off her pile of hay.  

“S-stability… sh-shaky…..” She clenched her fists.  “O-outside….”  She scrabbled clumsily out of the barn.  Things got hazy after that.  


“P…Peridot?”

Peridot groaned and rolled over… and right out of the tree and onto the ground, face first.  Peridot hissed and rubbed her nose.  

“WHAT?!”  She growled loudly.   “What, what what what?!”

She then realized that she completely yelled at Lapis.  Peridot whimpered and curled herself up as small as possible, drawing her knees up to her chest.

“Peridot, what’s wrong, what happened?”  Lapis knelt beside the green gem.

Peridot and looked away and muttered something along the lines of “nothing.”


Will work on this more….
