found a way out

Innuendo Bingo || Jack Maynard

Anon said: “Can you write an imagine where Jack hears your laugh for the first time?”

Hiya! I was originally planning another plot for this story but since it’s SuggSunday and Joe’s video made me cry of laughter, I needed to use it as an inspiration. It’s shorter than my other imagines but I hope you’ll like it! (Don’t hesitate to tell me if you want me to write you something longer!)  ♥

You weren’t used to this. Of course, you’ve met Joe’s friends a few months ago and were used to their ruckus all around your twin’s house but you always found a way to stay out of it as much as possible.

You did like them a lot, and vice versa, however, apart from Oli and Caspar, you were quite ill at ease with staying in the same room as them for too long. Some people could see that as being rude but it wasn’t really the case; you were just letting your brother having fun with his mates. From your point of view, it was simple: everyone needs a break from people they’re living with.

Today was different: as you were trying to escape 5 minutes into a conversation with Jack, Mikey and Joe before they began filming, the latter caught your wrist subtly and watched you intently, signalling you to stay.

“Y/N, we need your help for this one, would you like to stay, please?” Your brother asked. You couldn’t refuse this, so you nodded, smiling slightly, earning cheers from the boys.

Joe’s video was a new instalment of his “Youtuber Innuendo Bingo” series, and they were going to take turns, facing each other, trying to resist the urge of spitting water at each other’s faces. You could already tell this was going to be really funny by the way they were walking around the flat wearing swimming shorts. Soon enough everything was set and they began filming the video, with you on the side, choosing the extracts for them.

You were trying to stay as quiet as possible, to avoid getting in the video but at one particular moment, you just couldn’t hold you laugh back anymore: Joe began laughing but something went wrong and Jack shrieked with laughter, “You sucked it back up!” the blondie hooted, trying to catch his breath. Just hearing his voice made you giggle uncontrollably falling from your chair and catching Jack by surprise, making him laugh even louder.

“Y/N!” the young man said crying of laughter, “Maynard, that laugh-” “no, your laugh” he cut you “never thought I’d hear this in my life!”.

And that was true. It was obvious you never spent enough time with him for him to know you properly. That’s the reason why he felt that happy when he actually heard your booming laugh, secretly hoping it would never stop. He couldn’t help but admit his friend’s sister was pretty cute with that blush creeping on her cheeks, even though he tried to keep friendly thoughts toward you for the sake of his friendship with your brother.

With the time, you felt more and more confident about hanging out with those weird guys, and more precisely, the young Maynard. Hoping yourself you’d have an occasion to make him laugh again, just to see his eyes gleam with happiness.

Beautiful people do not just happen.” — Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

anonymous asked:

Current struggle: I met a guy on Tinder last year who I have everything in common with (tattoos, music, values, etc). He ended up dating another girl and I fully respect their relationship (I've even invited them both to come hang out), but he texts me daily and we're always sending each other posts/songs/videos that the other would like. Is it wrong of me to secretly hope he becomes single again + I get my chance to be more? And is it wrong of him to talk to me so much? Even if its innocent?

Well, put yourself in his girlfriends shoes. Would you be hurt and upset if you found out he was talking to other girls the way he’s talking to you without you knowing? Ask yourself that before anything else.

i’m rereading philosopher’s stone and chamber of secrets and i’m more and more convinced that lupin was, if not the first character jo came up with (i’m pretty sure she came up with harry first), definitely an integral part of the narrative from the beginning. maybe remus as a character was an idea she had floating around even before she came up with harry, which she then decided to stick in harry’s universe because she was so fond of him. i know i’ve mentioned the wonderful irony of a dark creature teaching defense against the dark arts before, and jo said she wrote prisoner of azkaban in a huge rush, she just went tearing through it and it was fantastically easy to write because all the plot elements were there and it was just a matter of piecing it together.

but yeah, i think that lupin was one of the earliest characters jo made up. just look at the way she’s built up the concept of werewolves in the potter universe (and even the idea of interchangeable DADA professors) before lupin’s official introduction:

philosopher’s stone:

  • at one point, harry and ron look up ways of treating werewolf bites in quirrel’s defense class. this is just a passing mention, no details in the text itself, though they must have learned how painful the bites are, how hard they are to cure, how you have to apply silver and dittany to the wound and how most bitten wizards literally beg for death. (also, slightly related: harry is writing down the definition for dittany a few chapters later, while studying for his exams.)
  • malfoy straight up refuses to go into the forbidden forest during detention for fear of werewolves. harry hangs onto draco’s words (but doesn’t he always??), and once they find the dead unicorn, his mind jumps to a potential werewolf attack. THEN, when they first hear quirrel skulking around, harry asks hagrid if this new, unknown thing is a werewolf. the boy is plainly petrified.
  • another tiny mention: hermione mentions the werewolf code of conduct not coming up on their exams, which means that they definitely learned about the whole issue of werewolves not wanting to be documented for fear of admitting their lycanthropy on record. i’m sad.

chamber of secrets:

  • gilderoy lockhart’s wandering with werewolves continually comes up, from justin finch-fletchley recounting how lockhart supposedly survived getting trapped in a telephone booth with a werewolf (?) to lockhart actually making harry act out the part of the werewolf in front of the whole class, which is interesting because
  • lockhart obviously wants to play himself and so the part of the werewolf goes to harry, but it’s notable that of all the reenactments lockhart had harry do, the one that gets its own scene with dialogue and all (lockhart making harry howl, oh man) is the werewolf one.
  • “Nice loud howl, Harry—exactly—and then, if you’ll believe it, I pounced—like this—slammed him to the floor—thus—with one hand, I managed to hold him down—with my other, I put my wand to his throat—I then screwed up my remaining strength and performed the immensely complex Homorphus Charm—he let out a piteous moan—go on, Harry—higher than that—good—the fur vanished—the fangs shrank—and he turned back into a man. Simple, yet effective—and another village will remember me forever as the hero who delivered them from the monthly terror of werewolf attacks.” 
  • i mean, just look at lockhart’s dialogue here. he makes harry howl (which is, admittedly, hilarious), then has him make this inhuman, wailing moan while he’s got his wand to harry’s throat. lockhart’s body language, his words, his obvious display of power all indicate his, and all of wizarding society’s, prejudice against werewolves. he sees them as creatures to be overpowered and subdued, even though they are in effect humans 97% of the time. lockhart has a whole book on this, and he’s so popular and influential at this point that anybody who’s anybody is adopting his viewpoints.
  • (please imagine remus lupin standing in flourish and blotts, reading wandering with werewolves with mingled curiosity and disgust.)
  • another aside: “No one wants to read about some ugly old Armenian warlock, even if he did save a village from werewolves. He’d look dreadful on the front cover. No dress sense at all.” how the fuck did the original guy do it??? is the homorphus charm actually real????!!! i doubt it, i bet this guy actually straight up killed a werewolf, saved the village, and then gilderoy adapted his story to make it a little more reader-friendly. there’s no way that charm exists, full stop.

and then, finally, in prisoner of azkaban, we meet a real werewolf, but we don’t know this (or at least, we’re not supposed to know) until the climax. remus is level-headed, articulate, dependable, funny, and a bit mischievous–I think about dumbledore’s comment at the end of CoS, “And I must draft an advertisement for the Daily Prophet, too…we’ll be needing a new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher…Dear me, we do seem to run through them, don’t we?” imagine harry and co.’s sense of immense relief when they finally, finally get a decent DADA professor. i mean, they had a stuttering wreck who turned out to have voldemort growing out of his skull, and then a self-absorbed fraud who tried to memory-wipe two of his students and then abandon another student to a literal basilisk. remus not only knows his shit but he’s so decent, so endearing. and he’s a werewolf. 

i really love how jo built it up, and then people’s subsequent reactions. hermione jumping to conclusions about remus and sirius working together, and immediately going, “it’s because he’s a werewolf; he can’t be trusted,” and then immediately outing him; ron’s “get away from me, werewolf!” comment; snape’s extremely prejudiced jabs at remus when he shows up– “don’t ask me to fathom the way a werewolf’s mind works,” “i’ll drag the werewolf”…while, throughout poa, we are shown that remus is everything but the savage, inhuman, animalistic image of the werewolf which jo subtly introduces throughout the early books. 

you have the world’s burdens on your mind and it's like you are constantly struggling in a stream of heavy rushing water. I’ve always tried to jump in and take them from you so you can make it to the surface, so that you can breathe again. when my hair is finally submerged and the murky water is choking me I lose you. you never make it back to me and I never make it out. you found your way back to shore and now I am the one drowning. you found your way home but it wasn't with me. so when I finally made it out and the thunder clouds cleared, you came back to our place by the shore. how disappointed you must have been to see that there was no home there anymore, it was just what was left of the piles of wood that were used to make warmth
