summary: Ray tells you the name of his other self and it leads to the two of you being more intimate.
rating: NSFW (spoilers for V route’s BRE 1, reader is assumed female)
notes: SO i actually first got this idea when my good ol’ pal showed me screens from V’s BRE 1 which has a lot of Ray. I couldn’t get it out just right, so I shelved it. Then another friend showed me a WIP for a smutty piece of art she was working on and i was like, ‘i feel the need to write something sinful.’ so here we are. tbh, i feel like i’ve written a lot of saeran sin but all of it is in my wips so… technically not.
i did my best proof-reading but i know it’s not perfect in the slightest, but still, i really, really hope you guys enjoy!!
“Your crush from art history is here,” Tony says, big smirk on his face and gesturing towards the door.
Steve hates to give him the satisfaction, so he doesn’t turn right away, but he still blushes. He’s always been an easy blusher. “He’s not my—!”
Tony gives him a very pointed look. “Uh huh.”
And yes, fine. Steve would totally be lying to himself if he said that the sole reason why he’s here at Tony’s Halloween party isn’t that he was hoping he’d get to see Bucky. The guy’s downright gorgeous, smart as a whip, incredibly kind and sweet, funny, and just everything Steve’s ever wanted in a partner.
Except… well. He’s also straight. No matter what Tony says—“He’s taking art history!!! Have you ever met a straight guy who took art history!??”—, Steve’s never seen anything that might indicate the opposite, and he knows from experience that he just doesn’t get that lucky. Ever.
“Still pining like an idiot?” Sam asks, poking him in the ribs.
“Big words for someone who spent three months chickening out from asking Natasha on a date,” Steve says, swatting his hand away.
Sam shrugs. “I still got the girl, didn’t I?”
“Only cause she asked you out!”
“Yep, I’m one lucky sunovabitch,” Sam says smugly. “Aaaand my Mistress just got here as well, so see you later, fuckers.”
Steve rolls his eyes and finally does turn around, eyes following Sam as he walks up to the entrance where Natasha and Bucky have just arrived.
If they were anyone else, Steve would’ve laughed at their costumes, but he doubts that anyone who’s ever laughed at Natasha has lived to tell the tale, and Bucky… Bucky’s wearing a motherfucking catsuit. Steve thinks he might be having a stroke.
“You’re drooling,” Tony says.
He’s totally drooling.
On the other hand, he also manages to just mingle and talk to other people for ten full minutes before finally walking up to Bucky like he’s been dying to do since the guy arrived, and that totally has to be worth some brownie points.
“Steve!” Bucky greets him happily when he sees him. Between his killer smile and the black and green catsuit hugging his body in all the right places, it’s a miracle Steve can even talk.
“Hey!” he manages to say, returning the smile and coming to stand by the bar with him. He gets himself a beer and then gestures at Bucky’s outfit. “I like the suit.” Understatement. Of. The. Century. “You’re Shego, right?”
“Yes!” Bucky grins. This close, those dimples are deadly. “You’re the first one to get it!”
“I saw you with Nat earlier,” Steve admits. “Her Kim Possible clued me in.”
Bucky laughs softly, and then points at Steve’s own costume. “Captain America, huh? Isn’t that a bit too flashy for you?”
“You’re wearing a catsuit and I’m the flashy one?” Steve says, faking indignation for a moment, before joining in the laughter.
“Hey boys!” Tony exclaims, appearing out of nowhere and throwing an arm over Bucky’s shoulders. “Having fun?”
“Hi, Tony!” Bucky chirps. “Nice party!”
“Aww, thanks, Buckaroo! Aren’t you the sweetest!” Tony says, and kisses his cheek loudly. “Hey, since I have you, help me set a bet I have with Bruce, will you?” he asks then, and barely waits for Bucky to nod to ask, “So. Are you straight?”
“God, no,” Bucky answers, somewhat amused by the thought, like the mere notion is preposterous. “I’m taking art history!”
“HA!” Tony yells triumphantly. He fingerguns Steve and adds, “Told you!”
Steve just groans. He can already feel the blush creeping up his neck.
“Anyway,” Tony goes on, “I think you and Catwoman have some talking to do, I’ll leave you boys to it.” And with that he leaves, just as fast as he appeared.
For a few moments neither of them say anything. Steve tries to pretend he’s finding his boots particularly interesting all of a sudden, not sure of what he might find if he looks Bucky in the eye, but when the man clears his throat and Steve does look up, he’s met with a fond smile.
“Sooo…” Bucky says softly, the tiniest hint of pink on his cheeks. “Is this why you haven’t asked me out yet? You thought I was straight?”
Steve huffs out something that’s a laugh and relief and amazement all at once. “You could’ve asked me out too, you know?”
“I mean, I wanted to, but… I know you only broke up with Carter ‘cause she went back to England.” Bucky shrugs and runs a hand through his hair. Steve wants nothing more than to do the same thing. “I was giving you time. Waiting ‘til you got back in the dating scene, all that jazz.”
Steve takes a step further at that, presses himself flush against Bucky’s chest. “I’m in the dating scene,” he says decidedly. “I’m very much in the dating scene.”
“Good.” Bucky smirks. He runs a hand across Steve’s chest, down his abs, and then lets his fingers toy with his utility belt. Steve almost melts right there. “So, Captain America. You’re a superhero, I’m a supervillain… Are you going to arrest me? Take me to a high-security cell that’s maybe conveniently located in your bedroom?”
Steve all but growls. “Yes. You have the right to remain silent,” he thinks about that for a second, and adds, “though I’d very much like it if you didn’t.”
Bucky laughs. “Oh, don’t worry,” He says, licking his lips and staring at Steve through half-lidded eyes. “I intend to be veeery vocal.”
The real Captain America himself couldn’t’ve stopped Steve from grabbing a fistful or Bucky’s hair and pulling him in for a deep, heated kiss.
You were sat on your bed while your best friend rambled on and on and on about her date tonight, shuffling through your closet, since she couldn’t find anything in hers.
You lost interest long ago, since she’d been talking about him for nearly an hour now. You were bored with the conversation, so at this point you had started to entertain yourself with your phone, muttering a few ‘mhmm’ and ‘really’ here and there.
Truth be told, you didn’t care. Yeah, she was your best friend and you were happy for her, but she was such a hopeless romantic. You on the other hand weren’t as sappy as she was with love.
She cried at any chick flick, awing at anything ‘romantic’ that happened during them, the things that don’t happen in real life. While you on the other hand, when she forced you to watch them with her, would cringe at the cheesy lines and gag at the overly dramatic love story.
“alright, how’s this?” she asked walking out of your closet with black pants and a black top.
“I mean, it’s not really you.” you replied, going back to your phone “but wear whatever you want.” you finished, scrolling through your page of photography, and art, only to have your phone ripped out of your hand.
“what the hell?” you asked, looking up at Kennedy.
“this outfit isn’t for me, it’s too…dark.”
“okay?” you raised a brow at your best friend.
“it’s for you.”
“well they are my clothes.” you answered like your smart ass self.
“(y/n), I meant it’s for you. for tonight. Were you even listening to me?” Kennedy raised her voice a bit. Not in anger, but in annoyance.
“I was at first, but they you just kept talking and talking about this date.” you answered honestly.
It’s how your guys’ friendship was. Honest and blunt. It just worked for you two. You rarely ever got mad at one another, knowing how the other one is too stubborn to even bother getting mad at. I don’t know how, but it just worked.
“it’s a double date. Luke’s brother just got out of a relationship a few months back, the girl was a total bitch if you ask me, from how Lu described her at least, and he wanted to get his bother out of the house, and I figured you hadn’t been on a date since Bra-”
“don’t” you eyed her.
You hated your ex. He was the biggest douche you had ever met, and is most likely the reason ‘love’ wasn’t really a thing that existed to you.
“I’m just saying. It’s been 10 months and you haven’t even gone out on one date, or even had a one night stand for crying out loud!”
“just come out with us. We’re just going for drinks. Meet his brother, maybe you two will hit it off.”
“I don’t know”
“please…for me” she pouted, sitting on the bed next to you and grabbing your arm with her hands, practically begging you.
“fine. give me the pants.” you groaned, getting up from the bed and taking the pants from her and heading into the bathroom.
After getting ready, you finally walked out of the bathroom, seeing Kennedy on your bed taking a selfie.
“when are we going?” you asked.
“the car will be here soon. We’re gonna meet them there.”
“seriously Luke” Jai groaned as they got to the bar. Luke hadn’t exactly told Jai it was a double date, or a date even. He just told Jai ‘let’s go get drinks tonight’ and Jai could really use a few drinks.
Once they sat down at the bar Luke had told Jai that his friend Kennedy was coming and she was bringing her friend (y/n) and it was actually a double date.
Luke was telling Jai about Kennedy and how she does this one thing in bed, that Jai didn’t really wanna hear.
“they’re here” Luke muttered to Jai spotting Kennedy walk in “baby!!!” Luke yelled catching her attention.
Jai made it obvious that he was checking you out as the two of you approached. And you eyed the two boys, seeing that they were identical, but you liked Jai’s style much more.
“hey babe” Kennedy giggled as Luke pulled her into a hug and kissed her.
You and Jai both groaned at the action as the four of you guys sat down. Luke and Jai on one side of the booth and you and Kennedy on the other.
“oh, (y/n) this is Luke, Lu, this is my best friend.”
“nice to meet you. uh this is my brother Jai, Jai this is (y/n)” Luke spoke, introducing the two of you. You both smiled at one another.
The night started out with everyone talking over drinks, but the more that Kennedy and Luke had to drink, the more mushy they got.
They started talking about them together in bed, kissing across the table and baby talking at one another. It honestly made you wanna vomit.
You and Jai both looked at one another and you rolled your eyes causing Jai to let out a little chuckle.
That’s when you and Jai really started to talk. The conversation with him just came so easily. You guys really hit it off. Kennedy and Luke at this point were like making out with one another across the table.
They muttered something to one another and Kennedy giggled.
“I’m gonna go to the bathroom” she giggled, looking seductively at Luke and sliding out of the booth, shaking her butt a little bit towards Luke.
“yeah I’m gonna uh…I’m gonna go with her” He spoke, getting up from the booth and practically running off towards the bathroom.
you and Jai both muttered something like ‘gross’ at the same time and looked at one another and laughed.
“would you wanna-” Jai started but you cut him off immediately with a “yes”
Both of you slid out of the booth and headed out of the bar, the cold air from the night causing goosebumps to form on your arms. Wrapping them around you, you and Jai started walking, the wind blowing lightly and people passing as you walked down the sidewalk.
“here, are you cold?” Jai asked, noticing your arms around yourself, and starting to slide off his jean jacket.
“no, it’s fine” you answered looking at him.
“don’t be ridiculous. I’m not gonna let you freeze” he smiled, holding the jacket open for you to slip your arms into. You smiled as you wrapped the jacket around you and continued walking and talking to Jai.
You’ll admit you enjoyed talking to him. You guys talked about a lot, like art, music, and right now you were talking about your last relationships.
You told him about your ex, much to your dismay. You didn’t wanna talk about your ex, but Jai had told you about how his last girlfriend basically controlled him. She was a total bitch. Like a complete bitch.
So here you were walking and trying to avoid telling him about your ex. You hated him. You hated how he would flaunt his new relationship in front of you practically. And he would even text you every now and then and ask you how you were and if you were seeing anyone. He thought you were still in love with him so he felt so great feeling like he still had this hold on you.
“um…he just made me feel so bad about myself. Like I wasn’t good enough for him. And he uh cheated on me.” you admitted.
“I’m sorry.” Jai spoke.
“it’s fine. He was kinda an ass anyway.”
“ya know, I’d never treat you like that.”
“oh really? and how would you treat me?” you smiled.
Jai just smiled before stretching his arm out for me to link mine through.
“like a gentleman” he spoke as we continued to walk.
As we walked through the city, our conversation was filled with laughter and playful flirting.
Jai was in the middle of telling a story about some video him and his brothers and a few friends did, and you looked up and tensed. Brandon and a few of his friends were walking your guys’ way.
Without thinking you slipped your hand down and laced it with Jai’s who just looked at you with a questionable look on his face.
“just go with it. please.” you whispered.
Jai was about to ask ‘go with what?’ when the two of you crossed paths with Brandon and a few of his friends, Evan, Tyler and Chad.
“(y/n) is that you?” Brandon asked, causing you and Jai to stop in your tracks.
“Brandon…hey” you muttered out. Jai’s grip on your hand tightened.
“it’s nice to see you. You look good.” he smirked, eyeing you up and down.
You were frozen. You didn’t know what to say. You felt awkward. You hadn’t talked to Brandon in almost a year. He broke your heart.
“hi, it’s nice to meet you. I’m Jai” Jai spoke, reaching his free hand out to shake Brandon’s hand.
Brandon just looked at his outstretched hand before reaching out and shaking Jai’s hand.
“hey” Brandon spoke, looking down at you and Jai’s locked hand. “likewise”
Brandon then turned his attention towards you “it was really nice seeing you (y/n), and it was nice meeting you too Jai, but we gotta get going.” Brandon spoke, nodding at the two of you before you also muttered out a ‘see ya’ and then turning around and continuing on their way.
You let out a breath you didn’t know you were holding and looked at Jai.
“thank you so much. I’m so-” you started but was cut off by Jai’s lips meeting yours. It took you a second to respond but when you did you got lost in the kiss, your hands tangling in the hair on the back of his head, and his hands laying on my waist.
When we finally pulled apart I rested my forehead against his.
“what was that for?” I asked.
“well, I really wanted too, but also Brandon was looking.”
You just smiled and leaned in and pressed your lips to Jai’s again for a brief little peck.
“I’m glad you did.” you smiled.
Jai slipped his hand back into yours and the two of you headed on your way.
“alright, I just got a text from Kennedy that her and Luke were heading back to our place…” you spoke as you and Jai were walking through a park now.
“do you wanna go back to mine then? my other brother might be there.” Jai spoke.
“I don’t wanna impose.”
“please. I’ve heard the stories, and I’m sure you don’t wanna be there to hear what they’re doing.” Jai laughed, which made you giggle too.
“you’re right.” you smiled, heading out of the park and hailing a cab.
When you woke up in the morning you groaned and turned, facing Jai who had a peaceful grin on his face, who also pulled you in closer.
Last night when you guys got back to his place, his brother Beau and his friend Daniel were there, and the four of you ended up staying up playing fifa for 2 hours. You and Jai on a team against Beau and Daniel, and the boys were all surprised when you were probably the best out of them all.
After fifa, you guys decided to watch a movie, some stupid scary movie you weren’t a fan of. Of course you and Jai were cuddled up together, and Beau and Daniel had what Jai called a baniel moment, when Beau teasily threw his arm around Daniel who cuddled up next to him, mocking you guys.
And then when you guys decided to go to bed, Beau yelled out ‘do you need a condom?’ followed by Daniel yelling ‘I’ve got some, first drawer on the left’ to which you two just laughed.
It was around 4 a.m. by the time you guys had decided to head to bed, and Jai shuffled through his drawers to find a shirt and pants for you to wear. But the shirt was big enough that you just wore that and your panties.
“good morning” he mumbled.
“hi” you smiled, burying your head in his chest.
“I just wanted to let you know that I had a lot of fun last night, and I was wondering if you’d like to go out again sometime?” he asked.
“well considering you’ve already managed to get me into your bed, I’d love to go out again.” you giggled.
“sounds like a great first date.” he laughed, wrapping you up in both his arms now, and pulling you into him, causing you to let out a little giggle.
“i can only imagine what the second one will be like.” you teased.
a/n: okay that was honestly like the shittiest ending and I’m so sorry.
If you read the title, you know what I’m talking about. So today, I was bored so I decided to read it. (I’m a lesbian but I still like yaoi, okay) I had watched a youtuber review, they didnt give any spoilers, I though it might be intresting, so I read it. At first I was kind of uncomfortable about Bum being kidnapped. But the more I got into the story, the more immersed I was. At first I disliked their relationship and I’d always yell at Bum telling him to run, ( Which is dumb because he crawled or rolled around most of the time,) when he had the chance too. But after awhile I had grown to like their relationship. (Even though in real life this would be absouletly horrible, but its fiction so its fine) Over all I really enjoyed the manga, I read it all the way up to chapter 28,(Which is the latest it has been updated since I wrote this) all in one sitting! I loved the storyline, the characters, character development, and the art. But after I read the book, I went to the tag on here and there was a lot of hate, and I mean a lot. Which I don’t really get because this is all fiction, and most stories have something that isn’t right. So can you guys like please stop hating, if you don’t like it, Don’t. Read. It. I loved this manga so much and I totaly recommend it, not for the kids though. If you like to read yaoi and detective work, (Detective work is not the main part of the story) and can handle, blood, murder, rape, and abuse. Than this would be a good comic/manga/book for you. And remember this book is all fiction.
Time to jump into this fandom!
(I do not support rape, abuse, murder, or this kind of relationship in real life, duh)
Hello Rem and aoimotion! I see that you've got a lot of complaining people over here, and it makes me sad as well. You're pretty good people, and your comics, the BJ and the previous ones as well, they are very great! Both the story, characters and surely the art as well! It can be hard to continue the work when there are such annoying people. What you said for those ask were well worded, and you guys are absolutely right. PS:Do you plan to make any other comics like the “WishUponaShootingStar"?
You’re always kind, Fricsi. thank you very much! <3
I’m fine, don’t worry. I consider what happened a lesson for the future. Unfortunately, things like that can happen, because I have taken the responsibility of publishing something on a public site, so I had to forecast for some kind of reactions.
I was mostly sorry for Aoi, I found many comments made to her really rude and untimely, so I was pretty disappointed and sad, more than angry (because I’m a person who hardly
gets angry and it usually goes right away). Unfortunately, some people often write bad things with an agonizing lightness, without thinking that the addressees, besides being authors, are also people who may have their fragility (they aren’t all beasts like me :3). Partly, I consider this situation my responsibility, because I’m an adult and I should learn to ignore the provocations and I will try to do it. For the rest, I can only answer with my work, I don’t know a more useful solution than this.
PS: you know, I started a comic wich I think it’s really nice, but I’m blocked on a point -_-’’’, hope I can make you see it first of my death.
okay so yesterday i was hit with a really hard wave of affection for all my friends and mutuals and i really wanted to express my love for you guys so here i go!

So I'm torn between the "we're the only ones who know wtf is going on in this class" prompt, the "arguing over Hogwarts houses" prompt, and the "I've always come to the cemetery alone" prompt... I'll propose all 3 and let you pick your poison ;)
Hi I apologize in advance because I made this sad.
“so not to be rude or anything but i’ve been coming to this cemetery at this time on this day every week for fucking years and i’ve always been alone up until now seriously what the hell” au
“Hey Buck,” Steve says, setting a daisy down on the grave, then a smoothy, shiny black rock next to it. “March tenth, huh? You would’ve been twenty-eight today.” He sits down next to the plot and pulls off his backpack. “I thought we’d have a little party this year. It’s not often that your birthday falls on a Saturday.”
Saturday was their day, when they’d play as kid, then play as teenagers. After Bucky died, Steve kept coming on Saturdays. Ten years, and he’s only missed his Saturday night with Bucky when he’s been sick, or those horrible weeks when his mother’s health declined, and he couldn’t bear to leave her side. He knew Bucky would understand.
Honestly, Steve knows that if Bucky really saw what he did every Saturday, he’d roll his eyes, and say something sarcastic about Steve needing to find something better to do.
Steve smiles as he pulls out a little plastic-wrapped cake, a candle, two Snickers bars, and a can of Diet Coke. “I didn’t want to bring a sheet cake just for just my…” He pauses, clearing his throat. “So it’s kind of small. Can’t fit twenty-eight candles on here, but the one will do. If you have any complaints, I’ll hear them now.”
He pauses. There’s nothing but the sound of the wind.
“That’s what I thought,” he says, quiet. He unwraps the cake and sticks the candle in it. It takes a few tries to get the old lighter he carries at the bottom of his bag to light — especially because of the wind — but eventually he lights the candle. He clears his throat again, but it doesn’t help. The moment he starts to sing his throat is scratchy, his eyes are wet. “Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Buck, happy birthday…” Tears start dripping, and he has to pause and wipe them off. “Happy birthday to you.”
The wind blows and the candle goes out.
“I miss you,” Steve says. “It’s been ten years but I miss you.”
“Maybe it’s because you spend all your Saturday nights here instead of goin’ out, havin’ a life.”
Bucky: Command is gone. Backup is gone. It’s just us now, Steve– Steve: Us against him? Be smart, Buck. Bad Guy: Haaaauur! Bucky: There’s nothing to be smart about, Steve. If he makes it to the bridge, the whole city falls. Steve: I’ll stop him. You go back to base. Bucky: It’s all or nothing, Steve. You remember that time in my gramma Hubbard’s kitchen? Steve: That pie…? Bucky: If it wasn’t for both of us, we would have been caught. Instead we got pie. Steve: Fine, we do it like your grandmother’s kitchen. I’ll go right up the middle, you flank to the left. Bucky: Fairs fair. You got the shield, I got the arm. Ready? Steve: Wait–Buck–I’ll always have your back. No matter what. Bucky: I know, Steve. Me too. Bad Guy: Rnnngh? Steve: Over here, punk!
The last time I saw home. Before the fall, death and destruction.

new drawing!! and I’m a happy artist right here!! I love this so much and really glad it turned out well and fine :D…I had to take a picture of it because i drew it on A3 acrylic paper and my scanner is A4 so I wouldn’t be able to scan a better quality of it so apologies for the bad quality…but anyway what you guys think?
The charts are cool and everything but the reason people are upset is not the number of tweets but the big picture of his face all over the accounts so there really isn't a point
Oh Nonnie dear, you sweet Summer Child.
People have been crying foul about the amount of Hook promotion since they announced he was going to be on the freaking show. The whiff of a threat was in the air and people began their offensive maneuvers, which basically consisted of a lot of pointless angry gifs from How I Met Your Mother or similar, and yelling their ship names into the void, this practice continues to this day. My charts, “cool” as they are, aren’t going to change that.
And despite what some may think I didn’t spend DAYS categorizing 3,000+ tweets and visiting a seemingly endless number of links on the off chance it would prove a particular point in the face of evidence to the contrary, but I appreciate the faith you have in my dedication to the character Nonnie.
I honestly don’t understand WHY that promotional picture upsets people so much?!?
Those getting their knickers in a twist obviously don’t understand how marketing works or what it’s FOR.
The promotions are not intended for the fandom, they are not for individuals who spend hours on Twitter and Tumblr dissecting and discussing every single thing about the show.
The promotions are for the general audience, it’s to give them an at an idea of what is coming up in the next arc.
You know, the general audience who at this point in time has no idea that Hook will definitely be back.
They have some inkling based on the closing scenes of 5.11 but if you’ve been to Facebook recently you’ll see that even the very obvious start of a trip to the UW and Emma saying explicitly “Hook I will find you.” there are still a lot of adorable people who were concerned he wasn’t returning.
Fuck, there are people IN THIS FANDOM who were concerned he wasn’t returning, how do you think Mr and Miss General Audience who don’t read meta and see spoilers all goddamn day are handling it??
That art has nothing to do with the actual upcoming storyline, it is literally just a big sign for people who don’t read spoilers that says “HEY I KNOW WE KILLED HIM AND ALL BUT LOOKIT!! HE’S GONNA COME BACK YOU GUYS. Guys. LOOK, he’s right here, with some fire, LOOKIT, see the smolder? Check them baby blues. He’s totally fine.”
What is so hard to understand about a popular main character DYING in the finale and the promotional department wanting to make sure that, not only are people excited about the new place we’re heading, but that they know said dead popular character is going to make an appearance again?
What is so hard to grasp about basic goddamn marketing strategies?
It has nothing nothing to do with the focus of the show or the direction the storyline is taking.
It’s not about Hook replacing your fav and the storyline being just him dressing up for 42 minutes every week in various leather outfits killing us with his attractiveness while he simultaneously oppresses all the female characters.
It is 100% just ABC promotions making sure the general audience knows that a major character on this show, a major character they just watched get stabbed with a big fucking sword, is coming back.
