ahh your kang daniel au was so cute, i absolutely adore all of your university au's anxiwmxomw 😭 if you wouldn't mind, could you maybe do one for ong seongwoo as well? thank you so much, angel, have a great day!! 💖
like ten people asked for ong,,,so here’s his mini college au~~ find kang daniel (here) ^^
major: interior design
sports: did football team with daniel for like a week,,,,dropped it and picked up swimming instead LOL
when people first meet him they all think he’s a serious like physics major who wants to be an engineer or a doctor,,,,,like he’s handsome and smart,,,,straight from a webcomic kinda boy
bUT jokes on them he’s into interior design and likes looking at textiles and getting excited over his new ikea catalogue coming in the mail
actually despises the fact that you need to take college algebra for the major because like ugh maTH
tried to bribe daehwi into doing his homework for him but daehwi was like 50 bucks or i suddenly cant do simple addition and seongwoo was like im bROKE
and daehwi was like hmmm too bad ask daniel or something
is bestfriends and roommates with daniel which is really funny because one side of the room is covered in drawings and designs with messy canvas bags full of fabric samples and sketchbooks ,,,,,, while the other side is strung up with posters on medical safety procedures and daniels leaning tower of paramedic course books
but their friendship is super cute seongwoo keeps going like “bro if we’re both sad and alone at 40 lets just adopt a dog together or something-” and daniel is like “that sounds good but no dog. 12 cats.”
but again they’re both like heartthrobs on campus,,,,there’s a fanclub dedicated to gushing over seongwoo when he’s in the library studying just because everyone wants to see that handsome side profile tbh
little do they know that virtually every close friend of his has like 3943 photos of seongwoo doing the ugLIEST faces on snapchat and shit for the Memes
jisung and him are in an ongoing rivalry for who has the superior shocked face they have contests like every time they meet up LOL
you’re actually friends with seongwoo through a class you take together,,,that dreaded college algebra,,,, and one day seongwoo tells you that he likes to drum
which is ,,,,,,like a dream of yours,,,,,you’ve always wanted to learn how to play and you practically beG him to teach you
and seongwoo being seongwoo is like ,,,,,,,, give me the answers to this weeks homework and i will
and ur like FINE but ,,,,idk if the answers will be write and seongwoo shrugs like it doesn’t matter as long as i don’t need to look @ numbers,,,,im good
so you agree to meet up in the music department later like at 8 and when you get there thankfully the drum set for the college band is free
and you sit down eagerly,,,,trying to do a flip of the sticks before seongwoo takes them away and you’re like HEY and he’s like “first things first - cool drummers dont flip their sticks in the air like fools”
and ur like -____- fine whatever where do we start then
and for a couple of weeks you and seongwoo meet up in the evenings so he can teach you
and at first it’s super casual and fun,,,you guys talk about how much you hate college algebra,,,how you keep seeing minki’s face on flyers for student government elections,,,,,how the lights in all the dorms flicker for like a good three minutes before actually turning off
like the usual,,,and then one day you’re sitting,,,,trying out a technique seongwoo showed you but you keep skipping a part
so he comes over,,,,,putting his arms around you from behind and settling them on your wrists so e can guide your hands
and for the first time,,,,,you’re hyper aware of how,,,,,close seongwoo is
how he smells like fresh laundry,,,,how the vein running up his arm looks,,,,and when you make the mistake of turning your face to see him
,,,,,,you highlight the sharp curve of his jaw,,,his dark and alluring eyes,,,,the perfect slope of his nose,,,,and his neck,,,,,
the warmth of his body makes you suddenly freeze up and when seongwoo notices how tense your arm has gotten he lets go,,,,
and for a second neither of you say anything
seongwoo opens his mouth but you just shake your head before he can speak
and you’re like “no, i know. don’t say it,,,i know you,,,,aren’t interested,,,,and i made it awkward,,,,,im sorry- im going to go-”
and seongwoo seems like he wants to grab you before you can go but you escape his outstretched arm just in time to run out
seongwoo left standing in the room,,,,,,confused and hurt as you make your way toward the dorms telling yourself over and over
that you ruined it,,,,a good friendship,,,,,with the sudden realization that you didn’t want just friendship at all did you,,,,
and it’s not like you skip college algebra because of seongwoo noooo haha you totally got sick and had to not come
but,,,,,,you know sooner or later you’re going to have to see him but you really r e a l l y dont want too
unfortunately,,,, it comes even sooner because someone knocks on your dorm and you think it’s your roommate,,,but when you open it
seongwoo is there,,,,
and you’re like “w-what is it?” and he’s like looking down but when he meets your eyes he gives you that smile,,,,the one with the dimple and it makes your heart hurt but he waves the textbook he brought with him and he’s like “since you were sick,,,,i thought i should come and help you catch up?”
and you know seongwoo hates that class,,,that he’d never tutor someone else in it,,,,,let alone you so you want to shut the door and tell him you’re still sick
but seongwoo pulls a mask out of his pocket and is like ‘i can wear this so you don’t cough on me!!’ and you cant tell if he’s being silly or if he really just wants to talk to you
so you end up sitting beside each other on your bed and it’s,,,,,awkward until seongwoo finally takes a deep breath and turns to you
“you said you knew i wasn’t interested,,,,,but how could you say that?”
you kind of frown and you’re like,,,because we ,,,,,are just friends? you’ve never made any moves and you’re swarmed by people liking you all the time what is there-”
but seongwoo puts up his hand and is like “ok, but do i devote my time to those people? to teach them to play drums? to laugh with them in class? outside of class? do you know i blew of daniel for you,,,,,that’s a lot coming from me that dudes my soulmate”
and ur like ?????? wait so is it daniel or - and seongwoo is like nO like my bro soulmate but you,,,,,,it’s different i,,,,
he seems to suddenly get shy,,,,scratching at his cheek and you’re like ??? and he’s like “when i was,,,,,teaching you,,,with my hands on yours,,,,,,,i wanted to,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,it’s hard to say this but i wanted to pull you closer,,,,,,,,god this is embarrassing,,,,,”
and you’ve never seen seongwoo blush until now and like,,,,,it’s so fREAKING cute that you just need to scoot closer
and seongwoo is like !
and you’re like “,,,,,i,,,,,wanted you to hold me closer too.”
with a small smile he turns his body toward you,,,opening his arms and he’s like “well,,,,i can still do that. come here.”
and you can’t believe it but you and seongwoo fall back onto your bed,,,,you in his arms laughing at how silly this is
and seongwoo leans down,,,,brushing your hair from your face and he’s about to kiss you when the doorknob turns and you’re like mY ROOMMATE
and you throw him a bit and soengwoo ends up on the floor,,,hair a mess and eyes wide and you’re like sitting on the bed and ur roommate is just like oh,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,ill come back in twenty bye
and with that you and seongwoo let out a sigh but he climbs back up on the bed and starts tickling you because oW thrOWING HIM OFF WAS thaT NECESSARY
dating college!seongwoo: he totally misplaces everything like he cant even find his own notebook so you’d probably have to be the one to be like seongwoo no no your laptop is under the desk drawer and your sketch book is on the shelf no no not the bottom shelf babe listen to me-, he looks extra fluffy in the mornings when he’s still got his hair uncombed and his eyes are sleepy but he’s also super soft because his voice gets lower and he just wants to cuddle, like seriously seongwoo just always wants to cuddle and hold hands, you could both be sweltering out in the sun on the quad and no matter how sweaty your palms get he’ll be like no we need to hold onto each other i need everyone to know you’re with me, pretends to not know that he’s being sexy when he’s laying down and his shirt is pulled up a little and he keeps pocking his tongue out to run across his lips and ur like seongwoo dont do that i need to study and he’s like do what~ and ur like oh my god,,,,,sends you random close ups of parts of his face and is like am i handsome~ do u still love me~, is a lil jealous that you and daniel get along so well but also is really happy because whenever you guys hangout together it’s a blast, does the occasional corny thing like buys you a big teddy bear that he names after himself or does a dance to try get you to give him extra kisses but it’s all worth it because he’s adorable, wants matching sweaters soooo bad and keeps dropping hints, likes when you sit in his lap and he plays with your hair while you read outloud to him, whenever you’re a little upset or scared he sings gently against your ear and it calms you down, when you can you take baths together and he keeps trying to get you to make him a bubble beard LOL

A/N: more and more angst. The taglist for this series might be closing soon, but my permanent is still open. (this gif made me laugh)
Everyone waited in the throne room for James’ announcement.
Rebecca’s last comment had left Y/N uneasy. She wasn’t prepared for the
proposal to come.
“Where is this boy, Winnie? He said ten minutes. He must
learn punctuality if he is to take the throne!” George exclaimed through
multiple harsh breathes.
Just as the King was to rant again, James walked through the
“Sorry for the wait. I had to see Natasha off. She is going
on one of her trips again.” James rushed out,
“but, I brought you all here for a reason. I believe I have
found a different way for the war to end with Russia.”
Y/N’s eyes widened at the proposal. Russia had been after both
of their countries for years, and now they want peace?
“Son, what makes you believe this war can end. It has been
going on for years. Nothing in this world will ever get Russia to stop.” King
George was exasperated by this point.
“Just hear me out, okay?” James asked quietly.
The King and Queen nodded their approval. Y/N was intrigued
at what he had to say.
With a deep breathe, James rushed out the sentence,
“We give them Sokovia.”
White hot rage consumed Y/N. Before she knew what she was
doing, her hand swung out and connected with the side of James’s face. A deafening
slap echoed throughout the throne room. Guards came rushing in from every
“Do not put your hands on me! I am a Queen! Leave us at
once!” Y/N screamed at the guards who were trying to drag her out.
They backed up and her loud words and exited the room. She saw
the King and Queen had their mouths ajar and Rebecca had a hand over her agape
mouth. Y/N bent down to James level.
“If you ever discuss the future of my country again, there
will be serious consequences, James. Never bring that up again. I will never
surrender my throne to the Russians. Sokovia is mine, and will always be mine.
Get that through your head James.” Y/N took one last look before addressing Rebecca.
“Would you like to teach me how to paint now?”
“It was the bitch’s idea, wasn’t it!” Y/N screamed at her
“It had to be! Her last name is Russian! ‘Romanova!’ What is
she even doing here!” Y/N continued to scream.
“Y/N- “Rebecca started.
“I just want her to go! She is debating the future of MY
country and she is not even a royal!” Y/N interrupted.
Rebecca had been listening to Y/N shout for almost an hour
now. Her canvas was full of harsh lines and dark hues. It reflected her mood. Their
session was interrupted by a knock on the door.
“Queen Y/L/N, the Romanian rulers are asking to speak to
you.” A servant boy named Sam told her.
“Thank you, Sam. I’ll be right there.” Y/N slowly rose from
her seat and made it to the door.
She was not looking forward to this conversation.
Y/N made her way to the throne room. With a deep breath, she
pushed back open the gigantic double doors. She was met with the King and Queen
sitting in their respective thrones. James was standing next to his father. She
felt pride that there was still an outline of her hand on his cheek.
“You wanted to see me.” Y/N said with an edge in her voice.
The King took a deep breath, “We wanted to discuss what had occurred
earlier. We understand that you were angry at James for his proposal, and he
had no right auctioning off your country.”
Before he could get another word in, Y/N interrupted, “Did he
even tell you who’s idea it was. It wasn’t his that’s for sure. It was
Natasha`s. Rebecca overheard her last night trying to convince James to agree. Tell
me James, how did she get you to agree? Did she give you a blowjob? Handjob? What
was it? She left because she knew if she was the one to tell me, I would’ve had
her executed for suggesting such an idea.”
James was furious at her words. She could almost see the
steam coming from his ears.
“She shouldn’t even be here. She isn’t even a royal. Please tell
me why she is allowed at meals and how you could allow your son, who is engaged
to me, to date that whore.” Y/N continued.
The King and Queen were surprised at her words.
“Queen Y/N, she is the daughter of one of our best
supporters. He adopted her. His name is Nick Fury. He had been good friends
with this family for years. She is allowed at dinners and she is allowed to be
with James to continue to keep him in our good graces. You must understand, he
is a lord of this country. He is a powerful man. He could take us all down if
he wanted.” Queen Winifred quietly told her.
“So, I’m gathering, you would rather be in the good graces
of one man, than a whole country?” Y/N asked.
“It’s more complicated than that. Please you have to understand
what he means to us and our rule.” George tried.
“Tell me, where did this Nick adopt her from?” Y/N asked.
There was a silence in the room. No one seemed to want to
“Tell me!” She tried once again.
“Russia! She’s from Russia!” James yelled, equally as loud.
We’re not going to bury the lead here: Bob Ross’ hair was actually straight. Just ask his longtime business partner Annette Kowalski, who knew Ross better than anyone — he had just gotten out of the Air Force, and was unsuccessfully trying to make a living as a painter, she says.
“He got this bright idea that he could save money on haircuts. So he let his hair grow, he got a perm, and decided he would never need a haircut again,” Kowalski explains.
Before he could change it back, though, the perm became his company’s logo — Ross hated it. “He could never, ever, ever change his hair, and he was so mad about that,” Kowalski says. “He got tired of that curly hair.”
But viewers never got tired of Ross or his show The Joy of Painting. With his soft, hypnotic voice, he’d bring his viewers in close as he created 30-minute masterpieces — distant mountain ranges, seascapes, forest scenes, always with those happy little trees. He’d sling his palette around, blend the titanium white paint, whisper about his life in Alaska, then gently tap his fan brush to create a canvas full of fluffy clouds. With his partly unbuttoned chambray shirt, his halo of tight curls and his soothing demeanor, Ross was a fixture on PBS.
Re-watching the show decades later — it’s now streaming on Netflix — The Joy of Painting still feels like a personal art lesson. And yet the oil painter we spent so many hours with remains a mystery. Ross led a private life and did only a few interviews during his career.
since we finally get to post our pieces, here’s the chlonette piece that i did for @miraculouspridezine (i also wanted to do a quick shoutout for @acequeenm-art for doing such wonderful complementary art for it. please go follow them they’re so talented and an absolute sweetheart it was so much fun working with them ^.^)
Title: An Evening of Firsts Summary: “I’m seventeen and I thought I’d finally get to knock off all my firsts tonight. First date with a girl, first time holding hands with a girl, first time sharing a meal, first time kissing, first time….doing a lot of things.” Chloe gets stood up on a date and Marinette comes just in time to make the evening magical again
An Evening of Firsts
Chloé waited on the bench in the park for exactly one hour and thirty seven minutes, and by that time she knew that her date wasn’t coming.
Margot seemed too good to be true when Chloé had met her at her father’s Charity Ball. It was the way she was able to sip from champagne flutes without smudging her lipstick and walk in a long, opulent evening gown without stepping on the train or tripping up the stairs. Looking back, Margot’s flirting was too smooth and too polished, almost as if she were speaking from a script she’d memorized long ago and refined through repeated use. But she was a year older than Chloé, and the fact that she took interest in her while carrying herself with such effortless grace left Chloé dazzled.
They texted for only two days before Chloé lost her patience and asked Margot if she would be willing to go on a date with her — a walk through the park at six, dinner at seven, and a show at nine. It was a hassle to get her to agree on a day, seeing as how Margot always seemed to have something to do no matter what Chloé suggested, but Chloé forced herself to be as flexible as she could until they both agreed to meet each other that Friday night.
For the four days leading up to the date, Chloé was a flurry of nerves and excitement because she knew it was going to be a day of firsts. It was so frustrating to accept that you only liked girls only to realize later on how hard it was to find others like you to share your feelings with, so Chloé wanted everything to be special. She bought a brand new mustard dress to wear with her favorite pair of heels, she spent all morning getting a manicure and a fresh blow out, she slaved in front of her vanity for an hour getting her makeup just right, and she even stopped by a flower stand to buy Margot a small bundle of tulips as a little surprise.
Chloé got to the park early, texted Margot that she was sitting by the big oak tree, and waited.
