Fic Request: Lydia is getting hit on by a bunch of boy and gets annoyed Stiles becomes protective (established relationship)

Rating: T

Genre: Romance, Established Relationship

Author: bladesandrunes

A/N: Okay, I know this is probably different from what you were expecting, but I wanted it to be different from the typical overprotective boy defends his girl at a bar and she falls even more for him, so I went for a different and more realistic (and ideal?) kind of protective Stiles. I hope you enjoy it.

I Adore You

Chapter 1

AO3 Version


Genre: Angst, Romance, Fluff, Hurt/Comfort

Pairing: Jungkook x Reader

Summary: The one thing I’ve learned in life is that nothing is permanent, but then you came into my life and made me want to make you permanent.

I lay in a bed that isn’t my own with another nameless body. Our skin sticks together and I fight the urge to push him off me. Instead, I pick his wrist up with nimble fingers and drag it off my waist and carefully untangle our legs. I watch his hair decorate the curves of his face that is smothered by the pillow under his head. Without another wasted second, I dip down to collect my clothing, hurriedly putting them on as I escape another night away from a stranger to a home that never really felt like home. I sleep restless, like always, shutting my eyes before day breaks, trying to escape reality if only for an hour.

But I guess the sun comes up whether you like it or not, one way or another. You can’t sleep all your worries away forever. Instead, a stranger’s bed fills the cracks of loneliness, moans fill the silence, and touches fill the heart more than anything else. It’s all temporary though, but the one thing I’ve learned in life is that nothing is permanent. There is no forever, only temporary.

anonymous asked:

Could maybe write number 5 of the kiss theme prompt for Jerza? Only if you are not too busy and are inspired for that prompt of course.

5. The characters both belong to the same friend group, but somehow they are left alone just the two of them on a camping trip/road trip/etc. Character A can’t stop thinking about wanting to kiss Character B and are afraid Character B can tell.

Setting: Canon - during the guild’s disbandment.
Genre: Romance.
Rating: T for smooches of the steamy kind.

This kiss is something I can’t resist. Your lips are undeniable. This kiss is something I can’t risk. Your heart is unreliable. Something so sentimental you make so detrimental. I wish it didn’t feel like this ‘cause I don’t wanna miss this kiss.

;Kiss And Tell

‘Are you worried about them?’

Jellal glanced up from the fire, the flames casting an eerie glow upon his face. He studied her eyes a moment, as though trying to figure out how she’d done it – read his expression so perfectly – and then let out a long breath he’d been holding in.

‘I’m not worried about them,’ he said. ‘I’m just not entirely sure how we lost them to begin with.’

He was right. To a point. Everything had been going so well – the trek through the woods, the location of runes, the gathering of information. All of it had gone to plan. Until they’d decided to walk back to base. One moment Meredy and the others were behind them, the next they’d vanished. Poof. Like something in a magician’s hat. 

‘We have enough information to infiltrate Avatar,’ she reassured him. ‘We’ll find the others and get to work.’

‘I’m not sure I’m okay with you infiltrating the group, Erza,’ he said, his eyes narrow in the dim firelight. ‘It’s not safe.’

‘I never said it was,’ she agreed. ‘But someone has to do it.’

‘Then let me do it.’

Erza choked back a laugh. ‘You? They’d recognise you the moment they saw you. You’re a fugitive, remember?’

Jellal cast his gaze downward. ‘I suppose you’re right.’

Erza’s lips quivered. This was the first time they’d been alone since she’d rendezvoused with Jellal’s group. She didn’t want to spend that time dredging up his past. 

‘It’ll be fine. Any trouble, I’ll contact you right away.’

Jellal smiled. Erza’s gaze fixed on his lips. For a moment, reality slipped away. She remembered the day he’d lied to her about having a fiancee. Remembered the sound of her heart breaking as he pushed her away. Remembered the way it had thundered mere seconds before, beckoning him closer.

Letting out an uncharacteristically high squeak, Erza drew her knees to her chest and quickly hid her face among them. 

‘Erza? Is everything all right?’

‘Fine,’ she mumbled. 

‘Are you cold?’

Erza glanced up at the sensation of his coat being wrapped around her shoulders. His face was too close, bringing his lips – and her memories – back into focus. Her face warmed. She hoped with all her heart that he would blame it on the fire. 

‘Sorry,’ he said. ‘I didn’t mean to startle you.’

His expression softened. He wasn’t moving back to his former position, either. Erza narrowed her eyes. 

‘What is it?’ she asked.

‘It’s quite surreal,’ he said, ‘that we should stumble into each other at a time like this.’

Erza forced herself to smile. ‘Without the guild, I wasn’t entirely sure where to go. I want to do something useful. To help people. But that’s a little difficult without a mission to complete. I couldn’t bring myself to join another guild. That was my home. It was…’

Jellal wrapped his arms around her, drawing her in close. Erza could feel her heart breaking a second time as his warmth washed through her.

‘You have a home here, if you’ll have it.’

Of course she did. Jellal had always been home. ‘I don’t think your Fiancee would approve.’

‘I don’t have one,’ he said.

Erza glanced up at the admission. A mistake she wouldn’t be able to rectify. Their faces were too close. She found herself occupied by his mouth and sorely wished he would let her go. 

And then he kissed her.

Erza’s body went numb despite the warmth emitting from the fire. Her fingers tingled with a foreign need to reach up and embrace him. He hesitated a moment before pulling back.

Neither of them said a word.

And then she kissed him. Combing her fingers up into his hair, Erza drew him against her with a kindling passion, letting her mouth kiss his in a way that raised the hairs on the back of her neck. It was clumsy and warm and wonderful, and led her to believe that all things were possible in the world.

They went on like this for some time, exchanging their worries and doubts in the form of an embrace. He kissed her and she kissed him. The sensation of his lips on her neck would carve their way into her mind, replacing the glimmer of heart ache and the sadness of being apart. 

The next morning, Erza stirred awake to an intruder in their camp. Gray was staring down at them both, a knowing smile on his face. Erza cast Jellal’s arm aside and quickly scrambled to her feet.


‘Erza.’ His gaze flit from her to Jellal, who was still, to her disbelief, sound asleep. ‘So this is what you’ve been–’

Erza smacked him before he could finish. 'What I’ve been doing is none of your concern.’

She took a moment to look him over. He was covered in eerie black marks. The kind of marks that would serve well for the infiltration of a demon guild. 

‘Your appearance…’

‘Just a consequence of my magic,’ he said. ‘I’m learning to control them.’

Reassured by the sincerity in his eyes, Erza leaned back on her heels and offered him a telltale smile. ‘I have a job for you, if you’re interested.’ 

Gray’s lips twitched up into a smile. ‘I’m listening.’ 

HTTYD FanFiction: Under the Stars (Hiccstrid’s first date)

               Title: Under the Stars

               Requested by: ReptileGirl497

               Summary: Hiccup’s nervous about asking Astrid out on their first ever “date”.

               Genre: Romance (I guess… I’m not really good at it but I’ll try)

               Rating: K

               Time-line: After Blindsided but before Shell Shocked Part 1 (RTTE)

               Hiccup lifted his hand, letting it hover above the door knob uncertainly. Toothless let out a huff of exasperation from his place curled up by the wall of the hut. Hiccup looked at him, and Toothless merely rolled his eyes.

               “Hey, this is big, bud. I’m just… well… nervous.”

               Toothless huffed again, then his eyes brightened before he flopped over onto his back, his body smashing into the building and making a very loud noise.

               “Toothless! Sh-“

“Hiccup? That you?” came Astrid’s voice from inside. Hiccup glared at a smirking Toothless, before turning back to face the door.

“Uh, y-yeah it’s me!” he replied, shifting from one foot to another nervously. The door swung open, revealing Astrid Hofferson. Hiccup did a double take, not expecting her to be out of her armor. Her shoulder guards were gone, as was the skull belt around her waist. She was casually dressed, and for a moment, he wondered if maybe it was too late to ask…

“Uh, sorry, you look… like you’re…” Hiccup stuttered helplessly.

Astrid just smiled and placed a hand on her hip, “You’re here for a reason, now what is it?” She demanded.

Hiccup swallowed, casting Toothless a glance for any kind of help. But the dragon merely shrugged before rolling over, standing up, then stalking over to Stormfly, the two dragons beginning to play tag.

“Um, well…” Hiccup continued to stumble over his words. Finally, he took a deep breath and said carefully, “I was wondering if you wanted to go on a flight with me and Toothless?”

Astrid smiled brightly. “I’d love to!”

Hiccup sighed in relief, confused as to why he’d been nervous before. He should’ve known better. He grabbed her hand boldly and led her over to Toothless, climbing on before turning and holding a hand out to her. She smiled slowly before grabbing it and tossing herself up behind him, her arms going to wrap around his waist and her head resting on his shoulder. He smiled to himself before giving Toothless a little nudge with his foot, urging the dragon into the air. Not that Toothless needed it, Hiccup had explained what he wanted to do before they left.

“Stay here, Stormfly!” Astrid called out to her dragon. Stormfly squawked sadly, before perking up and beginning to preen herself.

Toothless climbed higher into the sky, making Astrid clinger tighter to Hiccup, her arms tightening around his waist. He grinned, rubbing a hand over her clasped hands around his stomach. She yelped and hung on harder.

“Hiccup Haddock, hang onto the saddle because if we crash I will not be happy!” She called out. Hiccup blushed and moved his hand back to the saddle, gripping onto it tightly. He could’ve sworn he saw Toothless smirk and even let out a small chuckle.

6 -  “I just like proving you wrong.”

Originally posted by mintaekook

Glancing over your gaming computer screen, you noticed your boyfriend completely in the focus. Every now and then, you two liked to have Overwatch competitions. It helped you guys decide who was the better player. As of right now, Jungkook is winning but only by one score. On the wall, there was whiteboard that contained the score of your little contest. Using that to fuel your drive, you were winning match after match, however, Jungkook was doing just as good.

           “Why don’t you let me win, huh Jungkook? I’ll do whatever you want.” You suggested, coaxing him with your sex appeal.

You didn’t see it, but Jungkook raised an eyebrow, his eyes never leaving the screen as he killed the enemy team one right after the other.

           “And where’s the fun in that baby girl? I usually do whatever I want to you in the bed department anyway.” He replied, smirking slightly to himself.

You scoffed in response, knowing that he was right. Jungkook could get pretty dominant during sex. It was only a matter if he wanted to be sweet or not. He usually goes for the latter.

           “Whatever.” You muttered, rolling your eyes as you put your whole focus back to the game.

Jungkook saw the victory sign pop up on his end as he victoriously threw off his headset and leaned back in his chair.

           “I say that’s another score on the board for me babe.” Jungkook announced smugly as he stood up to put another tally on his side.

You rolled your eyes yet again, ignoring his remark as you focused on finishing your current match as the winner.

Jungkook leaned on your chair, watching your every move. Even making side comments on what you’re doing wrong.

           “Can you shut the fuck up? I’m trying to play. I don’t coach you when you’re playing!” You demanded rudely as he continued to point out what you should be doing.

Jungkook held up his hands in surrender, “Fine. Fine. But if you lose, don’t come bitching to me about it when I tried to give my loving girlfriend some pointers.” He announced as you were close to dying.

You growled, hoping to win this match but as it went on, the idea of winning was becoming futile.

Near the end of the match, most of your teammates have given up; thus, resulting in your ultimate loss.

Not wanting to give up, you told your teammates about one last plan to which they were skeptical of course, but what did they have to lose?

Executing your plan perfectly, you and your teammates managed to win which meant another tally was going up on your side of the scoreboard.

Jungkook stared at your computer screen completely in awe as he wondered how the hell did you manage to win.

           “I don’t know.” You shrugged as you got up from your seat and then threw your arms around his neck, “I guess I just like proving you wrong.” You added before leaning forward to kiss him sweetly on his lips.

Jungkook signed into the kiss as his found new admiration for his woman.

           “I knew I fell in love with you for a reason. You are just like me. We are not quitters.” He confessed, walking back to his computer. “Why don’t you and I show the other players why they should never let us play together?” He added, suggesting that the two of you team up.

You smiled rather cockily as you rushed back to your computer.

           “Game on.”

Even though the drabble challenge is over, feel to request something else like reactions, scenarios (texts or written), or a mood board! :)

Jung Hoseok had to be the worlds strangest anomaly. He could blind you with his bright smile and burn you with the hostility in his eyes at the same time. Every single History class you felt that hostility across the room. Today was different not only did he give you his death glare but he purposely knocked your books off your desk. You huffed out in frustration. You were no pushover and you had been beyond tolerant of Jung Hoseok antics and it was time to teach him a lesson. Fed up you placed your hand on his chest preventing him from walking past you.

     “THIS IS WHERE YOU’LL BE STAYING,” said Violet, lethargically pushing open a wooden door as she led the Jimin through the halls of the Violet House. “You’re going to be sharing a room with Taehyung.” 

“Who’s that?” Jimin asked, strolling into the room with such ease that it was hard to believe that he had been on the verge of insanity before. His room was simple. Two queen sized beds, a writing desk, and a small television.

“He’s…somewhere,” she shrugged. “you’ll meet him soon enough.”

That sounded promising. 

“There should be fresh clothes in that cabinet over there and a bathroom right next to it. Clean yourself up and meet us downstairs for dinner in an hour,” she ordered. 

She began to leave, Namjoon at her side, before he stopped her. 


Violet turned, eyebrow raised.

“I don’t think I properly thanked you,” Jimin said, tilting his head. “So, thank you. For saving me.”

She smiled at him, a soft and gentle smile that he swore made him forget how to breathe.

“You are welcome.”

When International criminal organization, TITAN, successfully steals an arsenal of missiles along with their encrypted launch codes, Code Blue is initiated. It up to Agent Levi Ackerman, a spy in a class of his own, and research scientist Hanji Zoe, the premiere authority on the organization, to halt a global catastrophe in its tracks.

Ch.1 - Ch.13

Chapter 14:

“Where are you going? Shouldn’t we be trying to get back to your friends?”

Hanji turned down one side street, and then down another. She wrenched the wheel and tires spun as the car skidded onto a wider, main road. It led South. Away from the safe house.

“I’d rather not lead four cars of TITAN agents back to our new base of operations.”

Mike was injured and there was very possibly a traitor in his company. She didn’t think it wise to bring a firefight to their doorstep. Doing so would in all likelihood mean the loss of the codes – and probably a few agents. TITAN wasn’t known for taking prisoners.

As she sped over the two lane road, the car’s engine roared. Rapid pops, barely audible over the engine, sounded behind them. Windows shattered as bullets tore through the glass. Hanji flinched, instinctively ducking to the side. The pastor slouched low in his seat. His hands, still cuffed to the door, strained to cover his head.

northern lights; prologue

Pairing: Jimin x Reader
Genre: Romance ( Smut | Angst ) | auras!AU
Summary:  In a world that strives for homologation and demolishes any sign of individualism, Park Jimin is nothing but an outcast since the very early years of his life for he can see people’s auras in shade of colors that tell him so much about their personalities; all it takes is a glimpse of their true colors in the form of colored energy that surrounds them as northern lights in the night sky, to know even their darkest secret. He has learned the hard way that his ability is something it’s better to hide, to deny for he has no desire to be deemed as crazy. He has learned that solitude is a far better place to live in and he’s determined to not let anyone inside his walls. That is until she comes and asks him what her color is. And that’s when he decides pink is his new favorite shade.

The sand is warm against his feet, infiltrating between his toes as he puts the whole pressure of his body on them, sighing in relief as the warmth engulfs him whilst his eyes fix on the cerulean expanse in front of him. His knees push against his ribcage as he encircles his legs with his small hands, his chin resting on the bare sun-kissed skin whilst the sea waves fill his ears erasing all the mean voices swirling in his rattled mind.
This is his safe haven, the desolated coast where no one will approach him, disturb him or accuse him of being crazy, an outcast that this world will never be ready to comprehend or accept.
Park Jimin is a peculiar ten-year-old boy whose best friends are shriveled books that won’t ever point a finger at him but, instead, welcome him in the worlds enclosed between the yellowish pages. Books don’t lie, don’t mock and most of all: they don’t have anything secret to reveal behind what’s already there.
He has learned the hard way that solitude is a far better place to live in when you hold in your heart a secret so ludicrous not a single person is ready to believe what you say it’s the utmost truth. Not even the people that claim to be your parents, and therefore supposedly able to love you no matter what abilities you’re born with.
In his ten years of life he has learned that people lie quiet often and expect to get away with it by being exceptionally eloquent with their words. They always doubt someone is going to be able to see right through them, especially when they are under a kid’s gaze. They do not believe, because they fear a reality where someone could spill all their darkest secrets with a simple glimpse in their direction. Deeming him insane is nothing but a convenient approach to dismiss the real matter.
In a society that strives for homologation and demolishes any sign of individualism there’s simply no place for someone like him, for he’s a nuisance, an inconvenience, an error in the perfect structure of what is claimed to be human and mundane.

It had become a custom for the Winchesters to call Rowena when they needed help with something extremely nasty they couldn’t deal with on their own.

You weren’t all that fond of her constant exposure to danger, but she always assured you you had nothing to worry about. She was a witch, almost four centuries old and one of the most powerful ones alive. There weren’t that many things that could cause her permanent harm, especially now that she had that Resurrection Seal on her thigh.

She could get hurt, yes, but if someone wanted her dead, they would have to try a little harder.

literature genres

Gryffindor: Anything gripping and Nonsense; at least it shouldn’t get boring. Gryffindors are only enthusiastic about books with a fluent story; otherwise they’d stop reading in the middle of the book. About the half of the Gryffindors actually read a lot of books; the others aren’t really passionate about reading.

Slytherin: Nonsense and Horror. Just like the Gryffindors, they hate stories that flatten down in the middle. Slytherins usually read a lot and share their muggle books (after the war against Voldemort, they got more tolerable with muggles and mudbloods), so they’re all reading the same books and nobody’s alone in their fandom.

Ravenclaw: The most of the Ravenclaws are fond of either dramas and non-fiction or real stories. They don’t really like made-up, surreal stories and fiction, except old tales and myths; they also read and write a lot of poems. Only a few purebloods read muggle books because the Ravenclaws usually like to buy the books themselves.

Hufflepuff: They’re having a soft spot for Comedy and schmaltzy Romance. The Ravenclaws find it pretty tasteless of the Hufflepuffs for liking kitschy books, but they actually just read them for fun. Hufflepuffs never really take novels they read in their spare time serious; that’s why they avoid creepy or serious texts. They basically read for amusement.

Incredibly charming and just as cocky, Jensen Ackles is a thief that is too good at his job for his own good, who would do anything to protect Jared now that his life is in danger. Years have gone by, but he has never been able to forget Jared either.

And perhaps now that they are forced to escape together, Jensen might be able to do what he’s best at: steal Jared’s heart one last time and win back the only person Jensen has ever loved.
