So I got two very similar requests (although I think it’s from the same person, idk), and because it basically the same I’ll modify it a little bit and made one.
thank god for no smut, bc smuts are a bit weird for me to write

know that”, Jensen shrugged.

Me and Jeff
took a step to a side so Clay could get inside the house and stared and him.

I shook my

I nodded my

tomorrow I’ll visit you with some ice cream…”, he smiled at me.
I nodded my
head with huge smile on my face.
“And we can
binge watch something on Netflix?”, he continued.
Jeff! Or we’re gonna do it all now and you’ll never get back to that party with
beer”, I laughed. “Thank you for everything”, I put my head on his arm.
pleasure, babe”, he kissed the top of my head.
later Jeff stopped the car in front of my house.
when you get back to the party, okay?”
nodded his head. “Sleep well, okay?”
smiled softly. “I love you, Jeff”.
“I love you

up by my phone ringing. For a moment I wanted to ignore it and I covered my

He took a

call the ambulance?”, I sobbed.
I don’t know when…”

walked to the wardrobe.

sweats and Jeff’s hoodie.

everything out of my bag. “Where are my fucking keys?!”, I screamed.
“You can’t drive
in this condition, I’ll go with you”, dad tried to calm me down.
“I don’t have time to wait for you”, I growled.
“Wait in the car”, dad grabbed my arm and pushed me out of the room.
I grabbed my phone, run downstairs and went to my dad’s car.
the door for me with the pilot while he was still in the house. I sat on the
passenger seat and started biting my nail nervously, I couldn’t stop the tears
from streaming down my face.

driving in silence, the only sound was engine and me sniffing my nose from time
gonna be okay”, dad said.
I didn’t answer,
just started crying so hard I couldn’t catch my breath, not to mention talking.
We got to
the intersection, there were lots of lights, whole place was fenced with police
tape, an older man with bandage on his head was talking to police officer. I
got out of the car and saw three paramedic – one of them was talking to Clay,
two other were putting stretcher into an ambulance.
Jeff, I thought.
I run under
the police tape, was almost by ambulance but police officer grabbed me.
can’t be here”, he said.
“No, you don’t understand, my boyfriend is in the ambulance.”
“He’s being taken to the hospital, please get back behind the tape”.
“You don’t understand”, I repeated trying to get out of his grip. “Clay, tell him! Dad!”
“Sweetie, let’s follow the ambulance to the hospital”, my dad showed up next to me.
“No, I have to go with Jeff, dad, please”, tears were streaming even harder than before. “Please”, I whispered.
In the meantime ambulance’s door closed and wehicle started driving.
“No, please”, I sobbed.
I couldn’t even stand on my own legs anymore and I slowly started subsiding down.
“Honey, Y/N, let’s go, we will go to the hospital”, my dad grabbed me and pulled me up and lead me to the car.
“Clay?”, I looked around until my sight met his.“Clay, come with us”.
He walked to the car with me and dad.
“Did you talk to him?”, I asked quietly.
“No… He’s… Jeff is…”
“Jeff is what, Clay”, I said through me teeth trying to stop crying.
“He’s unconcious”, he mumbled.
“Oh my…”, I covered my mouth with my hand.
After fifteen minutes drive we were in the hospital.
I run into the build and went straight to the reception.
“Jeff Atkins, he had an accident, ambulance just brought him here”, I said.
“I’m sorry, are you family?”, lady asked calmly.
For a moment I started boiling inside. Jeff, my sweet baby, the love of
my live, my best friend was in critical condition and she asked calmly
if I’m family.
“Well, no, but I’m his girlfr…”
“Then I can’t give you any information”.
“But… This is fucking bullshit!”, I hit the counter.
“Miss, please calm down or I’ll…”, she said with more sharp tone.
“I’m sorry for her”, my dad grabbed me and made me go to the farest
corner of waiting room. “Honey, I know you’re nervous and stressed but
IT won’t help Jeff if they will kick you out of the building, ok?”
I nodded my head.
“Now, Clay will stay here with you and I will go and check if I can find out anything”.
I nodded my head again. He went back to the counter and came back 5 minutes later.
“And?”, I asked quickly.
“He’s in ER now”, dad said slowly while sitting next to me. Clay was
listening just as carefully as me. “He has some serious injuries, but he
has a surgery right now”.
“Did they call his parents?”, suddenly I remembered about Jeff’s parents.
He was the only child, so obviously he was their whole world, surely
they should be the first people to know that terrible thing like this
“Yes, they’re on their way here”, dad nodded his head.
Few minutes later Jeff parents walked into the hospital, accompanied by two police officers. My dad came up to them, they talked for about minute and waked up to me and Clay. Jeff’s mum looked as devastated as me, his dad was really nervous but tried to keep himself together to comfort mum.
“Honey, we have to ask you something”, my dad spoke. I nodded my head. “Police found a lot of broken beers in Jeff’s car…”
“He was on a beer run”, I interrupted.
“Y/N, is Jeff drunk?”, he asked.
dropped for a second, I thought I misheard something.
Dad! He was on a beer run… Do you really think he would let me get in the car
with him if he wasn’t sober?!”
in the car with him? When this happened?”, Jeff’s mum asked.
me home because I wasn’t feeling well and then drove to the store”, I said
quietly. “I asked him to first go to the store and them to my home…”, I sobbed.
“If he only listened to me, this would happen”, I started crying again.
sweetheart, it’s okay”, his mum sat next to me and hugged me.
embarrassed for a moment. She shouldn’t be the one to comfort people, her only
son just had an accident and she’s comforting his girlfriend.
Y/L/N, did Jeff Atkins drink that night?”, police officer asked.
Atkins was sober when I got into the car with him”, I answered looking him
deadly in the eyes.
exactly answer to his question, but both me and Clay knew Jeff did drink that
night, but it was just two small beers over two hours before an accident.
freaking hospital, you can do fucking blood test and see for yourself”, I said
through my clenched teeth.
I think it’s enough for now”, my dad said.
policeman nodded his head. “We’ll contact you if we have any more questions”.

call to my mum and it was just me and Clay. Neither of us felt like talking.

“I left the
party and I was just walking around… I heard some noise… Bang…”, he was talking
very slowly, I could see he’s tired. “I run to the intersection, saw two cars…
I went up to the first and… I saw Jeff… I called 911 and then I called you”.
I nodded my
head without saying a word.
you might’ve saved his life?”, I said after a minute.

and my dad came back and sat next to us. We all were looking up with a hope whenever we
heard steps on the hall, hoping it was doctor with a good news, but it never
was… I spotted my dad rubbing his face.
home, get some sleep”, I said.
okay”, he assured. I grabbed his hand.
“I know you’re
tired. Go home, tell mum I’m fine. And drive Clay home”.
I’m good”, Jensen said even though three seconds ago he was almost sleeping
with his eyes open.
can go too, we’ll call when he wakes up”, Jeff’s mum said.
said firmly and shook my head. “But Clay, you heard Mrs. Atkins, we’ll call you
when he wakes up”.
All of them
could tell that there was no discussion with me, dad left me some money for
coffee and left with Clay.
later Jeff was still under surgery. I went to the toilet to wash my face with
cold water to wake myself up a little bit. I looked in the mirror, I looked
like shit. In sweats, my face whole puffy from crying, just wonderful.
Pull yourself together, I mumbled to myself.
I washed my
face, bought myself some coffee on my way back. I sat in front of Jeff’s
parent, gave his mum questioning look. The chances that something had changed
in last few minutes were low, but still. She shook her head firmly. I drank the
whole coffee and got up from my seat to throw empty cup, when doctor came up.
“Mrs and Mr
Atkins?”, he asked.
quickly got up, I stood next to them.
finished your son’s surgery… He got some serious injuries, also lost a lot of
blood, but he’ll be alright”, doctor said calmly.
“Oh my God…”,
Jeff’s mum covered his face and started crying with happiness and relief.
“Can we see
him now?”, his dad asked.
he’s still unconscious. Nurse will lead you. I’ll be in my room down the hall,
if you have any questions”, doctor smiled and left us.
parents started walking but I sat back on my chair. They probably wanted to
have a moment for themselves and I didn’t want to interrupt.
Jeff’s mum turned towards me.
probably want to me alone with Jeff, I will wait”, I smiled slightly.

wakes up. I came to the peace with the fact that I’m no longer the most
important woman in his life…”, she smiled.
true…”, I interrupted.
true”, she laughed. “But I’m happy that it’s you”, she took my hand. “Now, let’s
of us went to Jeff’s room. There were lots of screens, wires, drips, Jeff was
covered in bandages.
put hand on her face trying not to cry again. I sat by the one side of the bed,
his parents by the other. We weren’t saying anything, just looking at him.
At 5 a.m.
they decided to go home, to bring Jeff some stuff he’ll probably need when he
wakes up. When they left, I crouched by his bed and gently took his hand.

still…”, I took a deep breath. “I need to say it… Please wake up… Please be
okay… I need you, Jeff. I… I don’t know what I’m gonna do without you…”, tears
started slowly coming down my face. “You are the love of my life and whether
you like it or not… you’re stuck with me… God, I love you so much, you can’t
even imagine…”, I sniffed my nose. “Just wake up, okay?”
I got up
and gently kissed his head. I decided to take a quick nap, so I sat back in
chair, make myself as comfortable as it was possible and closed my eyes.

pressure on left side of my body. What did happen to me? I was at Jessica’s
party. I drove Y/N home. I bought the beer and then… Accident probably…

looking around and saw Y/N sleeping in a chair. Warmth went all over my body.
She looked so beautiful huddled to fit in the chair, in sweats and my hoodie,
that used to be my favourite, but since we’ve been together I liked in much
more on Y/N. And just when I thought I can’t love her any stronger, I woke up
in hospital, covered in bandages and see her sleeping here, right next to me. I
could like at her like that forever, even though my neck really hurted in that
her phone started buzzing.
I felt my
phone buzzing. I rushed to turned it off. Took a quick glance at Jeff and
closed my eyes again… Wait… I opened them again. Jeff was awake. Looking at me
with smile on his face.

I took his

“Oh, I know”,
I laughed softly. “You didn’t hear it but… I said you’re the love of my life
and that you’re stuck with me whether you like it or not”.
“I like it

sweats, not even thinking about how my face looks after night of crying.

“I love you

I had to wrap it up cause it was getting looong, I hope you like it xx
(spoilers) Since Roan and Jasper Jordan (RIP) are dead and Jaha’s actor isn’t going to be a main cast member anymore, what three characters are going to be added to the main cast next season? The cast size always remains the same, regardless of whoever dies, someone gets upgraded from recurring.
My personal hope is for Emori and Echo because they’re two of my favorite characters, but who knows?
Words can sting, cut you wide open, leave you in so much hurt from one person. Yet be so gentle, so delicate, so fulfilling, touching and what we need from another person. The have both spoken, both said the same thing.
Then suddenly, you met someone who told you the same story. Who told you about the same path you’ve walked through. And this time, you truly listened. You looked at them in the eyes while all the memories started coming back from the past. Suddenly you were like listening to an old song. You were like seeing an old scene you thought you have already forgotten. You were like in the darkness again. A darkness that was surrounded by voices you thought will never exist again. You were like watching an old movie. The one you don’t want to witness anymore. You’re hearing the same story from a different person. This time, the tears and sobs were not coming from you. It’s from someone you haven’t known when the same story happened to you. It was the same, yes, but still different. Because this time, you already understand. This time, you knew why it has to happen that way. This time, you were different. Because you already learned the lessons behind that story. And it’s time for you to try telling that someone how you overcome passing along that obstacle you thought you can never get through.
i just really, really dig percy being a constant figure around chb he’s just like this nice counselor teacher does it all kinda person and he pays special attention to all the newcomers and younger kids (because he loves kids) and he’s known by them for just being really nice and helpful and then of course they listen to stories about percy jackson and they’re like Wowie That’s Big until they realize The Percy Jackson™ and that guy who gave them a ride on his shoulders from the strawberry fields to the big house are, in fact, the same person
So, I had this thought after reading several stories about humans giving birth and not having eggs. What if aliens do not have ‘family units’ the same way humans do, but instead raise children in more of a group setting.
Captain H'roll'ah was excited to have hired on not just 1 but 3 humans, all of whom were extremely qualified for space travel. Even better, they were all from the same clan and so there would be no rivalry or refusal to work together because of old scores to settle.
“Captain! Three humans just came in a have taken over the dining area! WHAT SHOULD WE DO?!?” Ensign Khralhen was out of breath and panicked, but his species was notoriously afraid of humans after it became public knowledge how dangerous they were. Not that his own was much better, but H'roll'ah knew that these humans should be here and it was probably near a meal time for them. How could such an evolutionary advanced and apated species not figure out a way to avoid needing 3 or meals a day was beyond H'roll'ah.
“It is fine, Ensign Khralhen. These are likely the Humans that I just signed on to the crew. They are from the same clan, so they should work at peak efficiency,” the Captain answered, trying to put as much calm and soothing into his voice as possible, “Let us go introduce ourselves and welcome them so that the ‘pack-bonding’ can begin.”
“Greetings, I am Captain H'roll'ah and this is Ensign Khralhen, our cook.”
“Nice ta meetcha! Cook, huh? Guess we best buddy up to you right quick then!” said the male. He was average height for a human and perhaps a little on the heavy side, but H'roll'ah knew that it was likely muscle not fat. After all, this human and one of his female companions were security personnel.
“Always thinking with you stomach, Thomas. How about you buddy up to the Captain, so that we do not get kicked off this boat? Hmm?” said the smaller female, later identified as Samantha or “Sam” for ease. "Small" being used only in comparison because she did not have the bulk of her clanmates. She must be the medical officer. H'roll'ah was worried that she would be distant from her clanmates but her body language suggested extreme comfort and trust, above what H'roll'ah felt for his own clanmates of different castes. The third human, Laura if the captain remembered correctly, remained silent but was constantly looking around, as if expecting an attack at any moment, not that strange considering all that H'roll'ah had hear about Earth.
“Well then, please tell me what times that the three of you eat, and I will prepare food for you then. Also, please tell me any dietary restrictions you have so that you do not have any medical incidents,” Khralhen said, realizing that the humans could be bribed with food as easily as a Con'valix could be bribed with fruits.
(3 Months Later)
Captain H'roll'ah was surprised at how well the humans worked together. He thought that they might exceed standard human operating efficiency by 10%, but regularly they were 20-25% better than the reported average. They barely needed to vocalize to communicate, and they were able to remember each other’s needs and the needs of the crew extremely well. Captain H'roll'ah decided to ask them how they did it, and if it was a clan trait, where he could hire more humans of clan “Walker.”
“Thomas clan Walker, do you have a few minutes to talk about personal matters?” The captain asked, assuming that Thomas would, since he was off shift and relaxing in the lounge.
“Sure thing, hoss. What can I do for you? And I hope this isn’t about my or Laura’s tattoo’s, because we had to settle a bet on that a few days ago,” Thomas answered easily. He was a bit flippant for the captain’s taste, but his results were impeccable and the other humans followed his lead, which spoke volumes for the man.
“I was hoping that you could explain how you and your clanmates have achieved such a high efficiency rate. You perform well above average, even for clanmates who grew up together.”
“Clanmates? Oh, that’s right! Sam mentioned that your species, and most species on this ship raise their young in a group setting and the kids hatch from eggs, right?”
“That is correct, and please do not remind me that human females carry their young in their bodies like a parasite. The last time Sam explained that, it was enough to make all of us wonder how humans have managed to reproduce at all.” H'roll'ah still shuddered when he thought of it, and Khralhen wasn’t able to cook for 3 days after Sam had explained human reproduction.
“Fair enough, I think we reproduce more by accident that anything else, but yeah. Me, Laura, and Sam are not clanmates like you think,” Thomas chuckled and shook his head, “We are siblings.”
“I do not know this word,” H'roll'ah answered uneasily. In his experience, an unknown term from a human meant that something painful, gross, horrifying, or all 3 was about to be revealed.
“Sam could explain it better, and having Laura here only seems fair…” Thomas trailed off as he reached for his comm. "Hey, brats (again with the casual disrespect), can you both get up to the lounge? Captain wants to know about siblings.“ H'roll'ah was always surprised that Thomas clan Walker could be disrespectful when asking for others to do something.
“Sure, be right up,” Sam responded. She was likely a floor up in the medical facilities and wanted to take a break.
“Grrhhrhhgg.” Laura clan Walker had been sleeping, then, and did not want to come.
“Thanks, ladies, you can both explain family better than me.” Now the captain was worried again because there was a second new word being bandied around.
“So, captain, a family unit for humans is very small compared to yours of Ensign Khralhen’s,” Sam explained, “A family is usually made up of the mother and/or father or a surrogate who has assumed that role and the children. It usually numbers no more than 4-7 individuals.”
“But…But…how do you grow or develop? And to place all that burden on only one or two adults, how do they do anything else?” spluttered K'roll'ah. He was shocked to find out that humans in the region called ‘America’ did not have an open community.
“Well, children who share 1 or both parents are called “siblings”, and they develop together. The adults are called “parents”, and yeah, there is a definite loss of freedom involved.“
“So then, you three are…siblings?” H'roll'ah asked.
“Yes, Thomas is the oldest, and Laura is the youngest, with me in the middle,” answered Sam, “and our father bailed on us after Laura was 3 years old, so Tom became the ‘man of the house’ at 7 years old.”
THAT explained Thomas clan Walker’s attitude! Captain H'roll'ah realized that Thomas clan Walker had been in a command position and not had a commander from a young age!
“So that is why you both follow him? He is the new leader”
“Kind of, he is just the best at leading. He knows what to do and does it well.” Laura answered, which was rare; she was the most quiet of the three.
“And the reason for your peak efficiency?” Captain H'roll'ah asked, determined to get an answer to his question.
“Well, we have known each other all our lives and spent most of those lives in close proximity to each other. We just understand each other from the long familiarity and exposure.”
“Ah, the same way a pilot becomes better from being on the same ship, just with a person instead.”
“Exactly! And if you are interested in hiring others we are familiar with, we have some cousins, children of our parents’ siblings, who we know very well and want to get into space.”
“Then I will look them up, thank you for answering my questions."
Humans were a strange species. Instead of focusing on a large community, they developed close bonds with only a few people who share familial ties with them. Captain H'roll'ah did hire the 'cousins’ and they worked out very well. The human guidebook was updated to notify captains that humans sharing close blood ties have the potential to perform at higher than normal efficiency.
Now somebody write a story about a captain hiring siblings who hate/cannot stand each other!
