Friendly reminder that Guzma accomplished his childhood dream before you even finished your trials. You know, how he wanted to be a Trial Captain and all, but was rejected? Yeah. He accomplished that. Don’t believe me?
Po Town was his bug trial. Consider this: the player goes to Po Town as a distraction so Skull could escort Lillie back to Aether. In order for this to work they had to know where you were, what you were doing, and have a plan to keep you busy long enough to keep you out of the way. So what does Guzma do? He sets up barricades. Trial barricades. And puts grunts out at strategic positions. And lets his grunts keep running their Pokemon Center. Well, that’s all incidental, you might think. They make money from running their center, anyways, so why not let them keep on with it? Besides the part where it would be infinitely easier to let you exhaust your pokemon with your limited resources and have all of his grunts hold you hostage with their healthy, energetic pokemon.
Of course, then you get into the mansion, and that’s when the trial really starts. Every trial in the game has you complete a certain task. You know, defeating a bunch of pokemon, taking pictures, answering quizzes… or finding passcodes. I mean, let’s be honest, here. Team Skull probably doesn’t use passcodes to get to Guzma. They can all tell they’re Team Skull. They have very specific threads. and they don’t ever stop moving their hands. They know when they’re talking to another grunt, and if there’s something urgent they have to tell him there’s no time to have to sit and go through his whole dumb password routine—and even if they did, remember, this whole thing was planned ahead of time. Guzma could have easily coerced his grunts into not saying shit about the passwords and make you waste more time going allllll the way up only to figure out you had to go running around to figure that shit out. But nope. There was one grunt, who decided to tell you very loudly about oh man these passwords are so hard to remember you know those two entire things about Guzma that anyone living in that mansion would know, plus making sure to say no at the end aw jeez aw man whoops I guess I just lost this information somewhere in the mansion and am making no move to try and head you off before you find it haha. He told you what Guzma wanted him to tell you.
So you get the passwords, and you head on up to see Guzma, but he doesn’t have a totem pokemon or anything, so for your trial you just have to beat him, instead. This isn’t the first time you fought him, and it hasn’t even been very long since the first fight, either. He knows you’ve beaten him before. He knows you might very well beat him again. And he has this entirely inconspicuous treasure chest filled with Buginium Z. You know. That Z-crystal he stole from EVERYONE ELSE IN THE ENTIRE GODDAMN REGION because he didn’t want anyone else to have it. That Buginium Z. “Well obviously he wants to show it off since he thinks he’s hot shit!” you say, and yeah, that’s probably why he usually leaves it out. Except, remember, he knows you’re coming. He knows he may or may not win. And even then, if he didn’t want you to have the Buginium, he could have just hidden the chest or closed the lid and sat on it. You’re eleven. He’s twenty-something and the tallest character in the game. He could have just put his hand on your forehead and you wouldn’t have been able to reach it. Instead, he leaves it out. Leaves it open. And leaves you alone in his throne room after you beat him. You know. With his prized treasure that he thinks says he’s the most badass Bug trainer in Alola. If he didn’t want you to have a Buginium, he would have damn well made sure you never even saw it. You beat him. He lets you have it.
So you take the Buginium that he’s left sitting out on “accident” and head back out through the mansion, maybe taking one last look for shit before you go because you steal everyone’s things without remorse, and on your way out of Po Town, you notice the barricades are gone. The trial barricades that you can only pass through when you’ve defeated a captain’s trial, like they told you wayyyy back in the very beginning of the game. They could have left those up to slow you down a little bit more, give Lusamine a little more time without having to worry about you getting in the way, but instead Guzma’s let you waltz out without having to jump through any hoops—he left before you, remember. He’s the one who had them taken down.
You have to keep in mind that all of this was planned. That they needed a way to keep you busy so they could take Lillie. That Guzma knew you were coming and had plenty of time to prepare. So you leave Po Town, continuing on your adventure under a little bit more pressure than before, but Guzma? Jackass he may be, for one pokemon battle of one hour of one day, Guzma did the one thing he’d ever wanted to do in the first place:
Description: After showing off to his friends what he could do more push-ups than them, you felt like he was going overboard with his competitive side. Ignoring him for a couple weeks, made a new side of him come out.
A/N: I made a bet in a group chat that I wouldn’t say anything sexual about Jungkook for a month. I won but during that month, I would type out how a felt about this “unnamed guy” aka Jungkook. So, after the month was up, I decided to change all the ‘He’s to Jungkook. The beginning is kind of based on Episode 12 of Run BTS. I can’t believe I wrote all of this filth. Well, looks like I’m going to hell after this. Also, I didn’t edit it. So, if there’s any mistakes. I’m sorry
Whenever he walked over to you, there would be a huge smile on his face. It would have seemed as if he won the lottery or if he found out something interesting that he was ready to tell you about. Jungkook’s smile made you feel like you were stuck in a trance and everything around you was moving slowly. Whenever you looked into his considerably large eyes, it would feel as if it was only you and him in the world. He had that effect on you and you never knew it. He had his days where he would annoy you to the point where you would ignore him for days on end. Especially on this particular day, he was showing off way too much and you were not having it.
okay but the crew stops at a planet for a diplomatic mission, but as they step off of the ship, it immediately starts to pour.
The inhabitants of the planet come running out - the rains a sign of good luck and fortune in their culture - and greet them enthusiastically. Lance tries to remember he’s a paladin. Tries to remember he has a job to do. tries to remember he has a reputation to uphold. Tries to remember that one wrong move could ruin this whole meeting.
But he can’t hold it in.
He drops to his knees in the rain, quiet sobs wracking his body as his eyes squeeze shut. Everyone around him backs up, creating their own circle far away from him, thinking that he’s happy to see the rains again. That he’s finally getting what he’s wanted after so long.
But they’re wrong.
All he can think about is his family. Sitting out on the porch with his grandmother, listening to the soft pitter-pattering of the rain while she knits or sews. Playing out in the puddles with his littlest sisters teaching them how to jump to make the biggest splash. Talking with his dad, listening to him hope that the rain doesn’t wash away the new coat of paint he just put on the house. Cooking with his mom, sharing in her hope that his siblings get home safe and sound.
But he doesn’t have that anymore.
They’re on earth. He’s on some strange planet. They’re going to school. He’s learning as he goes. They’re eating real meals. He’s eating goo. They’re together, happy. He’s alone, pretending everything’s okay. They’re living their lives, probably thinking he’s dead. Half the time he’s wishing he was.
But he has a job.
There are people who count on him. a universe that counts on him. He can’t exactly just leave them behind because the rain brings unwanted memories. No. he has to suck it up and push through.
But a hand finds it’s way to his back.
Lance doesn’t dare look up, not trusting his eyes to not allow tears to spill over, nor his ability to put on a smile and make a joke about how much of a baby he’s being. He stays still, focusing on the hand rubbing circles on his back. It’s probably Hunk. He always knows when Lance needs him, no matter how neutral his face is, or how convincing his laughter rings out.
But it’s not him.
“Take as much time as you need,” says a voice he’s become all too familiar with. A voice he’s fought with time and time again. A voice he’s dreamed about for months on end. A voice he’s longed to wake up to. A voice he’s told himself he hates just to be able to deal with the fact that its owner hates him.
But maybe he doesn’t.
Keith stays, eventually kneeling next to Lance. His hand never leaves his back. Not when Lance stops crying, nor when Lance leans onto him, eyes drooping, face void of any emotion. He stays. And Lance will hold onto that for as long as he can.
I’ve had many faces, many lives. But I don’t admit to all of them. There’s one life I’ve tried very hard to forget. He was the Doctor who fought in the Time War and that was the day he did it. The day I did it. The day he killed them all. The last day of the Time War. The war to end all wars. Between my people and the Daleks. And in that battle there was a man with more blood on his hands than any other. A man who would commit a crime that would silence the universe. And that man was me.
Since Twitter is a really shitty platform when it comes to getting into the finer details, I’ll do that here.
Nick Spencer keeps deflecting the blame. He keeps dismissing the outrage of Jews and our allies, saying that he didn’t draw the cover, that he didn’t write the solicitation. He may not have, but he did write the issue, and that gives him a degree of control.
When Frank Cho tried to submit a variant cover showing Wonder Woman giving the viewer a panty shot, the author of the series, Greg Rucka, fought tooth and nail against it. In the end, the cover was edited and Cho walked out on his contract. Rucka saw something that he knew was sexist, and he had it fixed. But now, Nick Spencer refuses to stand up against antisemitism.
The editor of Secret Empire should have said something. The author should have said something. The artist should have known better. Instead, they all allowed a holocaust survivor to be depicted in a nazi uniform. The blame falls on all of their shoulders.
Have you done any fight fics? Just curious if you have in he past, cuz I know you aren't taking requests 😄
ARE YOU GUYS TRYING TO KILL ME WITH THIS ANGST??? I’m kidding! hahaha I’m a sucker for angst (as you all probably know by now) and I think I have a few fics that you might like!
Yuuri and Victor Fight
First Fight by apollosoyuz, Gen, 2.4k The first time they fought was loud and then quiet. In which Yuuri panics and blames Viktor, and Viktor doesn’t realize the impact his petty response will have on Yuuri until it’s too late. Fluffy ending!
Break the Cycle by SigmundFreud, Explicit, 26k College AU where ex boyfriends Yuuri and Victor can’t stay away from each other. LOTS of mutual pining, arguments, miscommunication, and, of course, angst. Thumbs up!
Submerge by cryingoverspilledvodka, Mature, 38k The pining and angst is real in this one! Full of angry Yuuri and an equally frustrated Victor. Takes place after their first argument. Relationships aren’t easy, and Victor and Yuuri are no exception.
selfish by MissSpock, Gen, 1.9k “…Aren’t you going to stop me?” He hated how his voice wobbled and cracked, and he had to fight to keep the tears in his eyes. Yuuri’s brows creased. The mist had cleared from the lenses of his glasses and he looked at Victor with confused, amber eyes. “Why should I? It seems as though you’ve come to a decision.” Role reversal of ep 11. *sobs*
Until My Feet Bleed and My Heart Aches by Reiya, Explicit, 166k (WIP) Pretty sure everyone’s read this one… but if you haven’t, do! Rivals AU where Yuuri’s main goal, ever since he was a child, is to beat Victor and win the GPF. SO MUCH ANGST (like, so much) and deliciously hot, hot, hot! You might die from reading this… it’s that good. My personal favourite!
Trouble in Paradise by DarkDemon, Gen, 1.3k After their first fight as a couple, Yuuri feels absolutely horrible and tracks Viktor down at the rink so they can talk about it. Thumbs up!
turbulence by fan_nerd, Teen, 1.9k Yuuri could get frustrated and tired and impatient, but he’s never called Victor out of his name. He’s far too polite for that. The word idiot rings in Victor’s head like he’s been slapped. They fight, they make up!
Nerve Endings by Phyona, Explicit, 47k (WIP) When Yuuri moves in with Victor in St. Petersburg, they have to work through Yuuri’s anxiety and Victor’s secrets to find their balance. LOVE THIS FIC OMG!
Hold Me Tight by smudgesofink, Teen, 11k To say that Victor is touchy-feely is the understatement of the century. So when Victor just stops touching Yuuri, without explanation, without reason, it makes for a painfully jarring experience. It’s all fluff… then goes straight into the depths of angst.. *cries*
From The Moon by ButterBeerBitch, Mature, 4.8k That one time Victor finds out why Yuuri has never let him inside his bedroom because….well, we all know why… happy ending!
Of Glass and Gold by smudgesofink, Teen, 4.4k In which Victor is gold–magnificent, breathtaking, brilliant–and Yuuri is glass–transparent, thin, breakable. Great fic!
Anything You Want by Flightless_Bird, Teen, 2.6k Victor’s heart stung. He knew that he shouldn’t get annoyed when he was clearly in the wrong; but it still hurt to think that Yuuri believed a few flashing cameras were more important to Victor than him. Love this!
OK so I HC that once they start dating officially (after the Big Talk), for a little while they'll both be avoiding arguments/conflict like the plague because they're in the honeymoon phase, and it would probably take a while to fully believe "Wow this is happening, he actually loves me and won't leave even if we get angry at each other for some reason." What will their first official fight be over? Something serious or silly? (or even better -- if you're feeling up to it -- a top ten list?)
Top Ten Viktuuri Fights:
10) When they first started living together there was an adjustment
period where they had to learn to work around each other’s bad habits and
compromise so the ‘fight’ mainly consisted of Yuuri getting silently annoyed
that Viktor kept coming back with really expensive elaborate things from the
supermarket for dinner but forgetting to buy basics like the milk and Viktor
passive aggressively tidying up after Yuuri who still had an ingrained student
habit of leaving his clothes lying everywhere and not doing the laundry until
absolutely necessary. They worked it out in the end by talking about it and
making up a chores rota where Yuuri did the shopping and Viktor did the laundry
and they both did the cleaning together to make everyone happy
9) Non-serious fights over who Vicchan and Makkachin like
more. Enough said.
8) An argument when they were adopting their new puppy
because Viktor wanted to adopt every single dog in the building and Yuuri did
too but he had a more realistic idea of how many dogs they could fit into their
7) They had a bad week at one point when they were living
together but both training very hard for the upcoming competition and barely
saw each other which made them both snappish and irritable. They both got a bit
insecure that the other one was drifting away from them. It all came to a head
one night when Viktor made a snarky comment and Yuuri snapped back at him and
devolved into crying and talking about feelings and cuddling. After that they
made a big effort to specifically reserve time to do things together and by the
time the competition came around everything was resolved
6) While they were still long distance they ended up having
a minor fight because Viktor kept forgetting about the time difference and
calling at really inappropriate times but they solved that one pretty quickly
5) They had a reasonably serious argument during one point
where Yuuri was reading all the negative comments from people about their
relationship online and getting really insecure which made him start to pull away
and isolate himself and ended in an argument which was eventually resolved by
lots of reassurance and cuddling and him promising to come to Viktor if he was
ever feeling like that again rather than pulling away and starting to doubt
4) They have fought a lot over who loves the other more but
as you can imagine these are not serious fights at all and usually result in
either cuddles, tickle fights or sex
3) They had a fight over money and finance because Yuuri was
used to saving every penny and sending almost everything home or putting it in
a savings account and Viktor was much more lax with money and enjoyed buying
Yuuri expensive presents and that made them clash. They talked it out
eventually and found a balance in the end, although Viktor still couldn’t help
buying Yuuri elaborate presents every now and then
2) Someone once dared them to try and land a quad axel and
being the competitive idiots that they were they ended up spending a ridiculous
number of hours trying to do and arguing over who was going to manage it first
1) Most of their fights were little things that got solved
pretty quickly and they only ever had one really horrendous
screaming-yelling-crying awful fight. It was while they were living together
and started over something really stupid but rapidly spiralled out of control
and Yuuri ended up saying some hurtful things out of insecurity that he
regretted and Viktor ended up saying some hurtful things out of thoughtlessness
that he regretted and it set both of them on the defensive and lashing out and
it got really, really bad. A lot of old dirt was brought back up and old wounds
were reopened and they both got very hurt and upset. It ended with Viktor
completely shutting down after something Yuuri said and just walking out the apartment
because he knew he was furious and about to cry and needed some space which
sent Yuuri into a really bad downward spiral and subsequent ‘sobbing into
Vicchan’s fur’ kind of breakdown. After a few hours apart to cool off they both
could look back and see where they were each in the wrong. Viktor showed up at
the door with a bunch of flowers to find Yuuri cooking borscht in the kitchen
and they hugged it out and then sat down and talked it out because by that
point they had got pretty good with the communication stuff. They both apologised
and worked out how to get to the root of the issue and forgave each other very
Hello, readers! At the moment, I’m super busy prepping a Lovecraft Legacies LARP event, but I didn’t want to fail to offer some DMing advice this week. So I grabbed an old article I wrote for the website GeeksDreamGirl.com. I wrote it with 4E in mind, but it’s lessons translate to any game. Enjoy!
Combat is an integral part of many RPGs. In some, it’s a necessary evil. In others, like D&D, it’s an exciting part of the game. Sometimes, the PCs are facing truly evil and villainous foes that need to be wiped from the face of your campaign world. Sometimes, however, you want to have a battle end in something other than a complete massacre of one side or another. What if the PCs are facing honorable foes who’ve been duped into fighting them? Or what if they’re facing foes who vastly out-number or out-power them? Is a slaughter the only answer? Obviously, the
answer can and should be no.
Here then are five ways to end a fight before the battlefield is drenched in the blood of one side or another. You can use these ways to keep a battle short, or to offer an alternative to simple one-
A Fight to First Blood
If the PCs are facing honorable foes, or are fighting in a tournament, they may choose to fight to “first blood”, and I’m not referencing any cheesy 80s action films. In 4E D&D, this is an easy
concept: have the players and NPCs agree to fight until someone hits their Bloodied value, and use this as the threshold of when someone finally draws blood on the other.
This has a lot of basis in reality. Knights at tournament wanted to show their prowess at real battle, and first blood was a way to show one’s skill, but to avoid seriously injuring one’s foe. Likewise, a duel that was serious but didn’t need to be to the death would sometimes be fought to first blood. This served as a grim reminder to the wounded – I bloodied you once. Next time might be more fatal.
Holding Out Like a Hero
This is a particular favorite of mine. In it, the PCs aren’t necessarily planning on winning a fight, but only of surviving and holding off foes until a set goal is reached. This is particularly effective for when the king can get to safety if his loyal knights can last ten rounds of combat, or if a wizard needs them to hold until he gets six successes on Arcana checks. Combined with Skill Challenges, this can make for a memorable sequence. Skeletons will keep pouring out of the crypt until the cleric successfully re-consecrates it as a skill challenge of minor actions, or the room will keep filling with water that’s inhabited with shrieking eels until the rogue resets the trap mechanism. It’s up to the party to hold off the skeletons, eels, or what have you.
You can use this device to simulate a scene like Helm’s Deep. The PCs have to hold out a certain number of rounds until the reinforcements arrive. Especially in combination with an ever-increasing number of minions, this can give the proper feeling of literally holding off an army.
Cutting Off the Head
The orcish army feels unbeatable until their leader, Gruzhgarn, is slain. When the necromancer is killed, the undead crumble back to lifeless husks. The wolves will flee in dismay if their alpha is killed. If you make one or more of the enemies the linchpin holding the rest of the monsters together, then you can give the PCs a goal other than simply slaying every monster on the battlefield. Once the leader-type monster goes down, the rest will surrender, flee, return to their home plane, etc. I especially like the feeling of “kill the wizard and his minions will return to the Elemental Plane.” It’s something that makes a logical sort of story sense, and it gives an out to the players.
A variation on this is “this monster is invulnerable until condition X is met.” In my current campaign, a great example was Auntie Mengybone, whom I’ve mentioned in other columns. She was harnessing the life-force of a captive Arch Fey to constantly heal herself, making her effectively invulnerable. Several of the PCs with Controller-type powers kept her busy and away from the other PCs who were freeing the Arch Fey through a skill challenge. Once the Arch Fey was released, she immediately went into retreat mode, leaving her minions to fight the PCs. She didn’t escape, but, if she had, she would’ve likely become a recurring villain in the campaign.
Live to Fight Another Day
There’s an adage that most PCs would rather have their character killed than have them captured. I’m not sure what the psychology around this is, but I agree that it’s true. That doesn’t mean, however, that you have to have your monsters behave the same way.
I befuddled my players in my Eberron campaign by having the changeling villain they’d been fighting step back, go defensive, and offer to surrender, but only if the Lawful Good character
promised him mercy. The party was immediately suspicious, but they reluctantly agreed. This let me draw a fight that was already a foregone conclusion to a quick close and keep a valuable NPC
alive for a future sequence. And when the PCs found out later that he’d escaped the prisons of their patrons, they cursed his name – darned, tricksy changelings!
The other trick is to have monsters flee. They might be running for reinforcements, or they might be running for their lives, but sometimes monsters, especially intelligent ones, might choose to abandon a fight that they’re clearly losing. Earlier editions of D&D had complex Morale check systems to help a DM determine whether or not a monster would fight on or drop their weapons, but, nowadays, story is the arbiter of such a decision.
Stop. Just Stop.
I would never suggest that you should declare a fight against the PCs and tell them they’re all dead. But good news! Your monsters don’t have any ego beyond that which you invest in them.
If you’re down to two half-dead orcs, everything else is dead, and the PCs are still in excellent shape, you can call that fight. Sure, the orcs might do a little more damage, but is it really necessary to eke every hit point from the player characters that you can? I think not.
Some DMs, and some players, don’t like this approach. They want to know exactly who did what, who killed whom, and noodle the fight down to each hit point. That’s not my style of game play. If it’s getting late, and I have an important plot point to make before game ends, and this fight is slowing me down, I’ll sometimes call a fight once it’s clear how unlikely it is that the PCs will lose. “Well, the ogre has 15 hit points, and you’re all going to get to attack before he does. Unless you really want to know who kills the ogre specifically, let’s call it. Someone describe for me how the ogre dies.” My players were baffled the first time I did this, but they’ve
come to appreciate it.
Not every fight has to be fought to the last HP. Sometimes, there are reasons why a fight should end early, and sometimes it’s just more convenient to move things along rather than dither down to the bitter end. Using this tool, you can make battles more about the story and excitement and less about drudging down to the last hit point.
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, Eric wasn’t Reb. Reb was who Eric longed to be, guiltless, strong, someone who didn’t give a fuck what you said and wasn’t afraid to tell you. Reb was the guy at the bar who flirted with your girlfriend right in front of you and then fought you just for fun afterward. In the end Reb was a mask too big for Eric to wear or shoulder, a mask that he realized all too late was nothing more than a fantasy and Eric was all he’d ever be… Whereas with Dylan, its the opposite. VoDkA wasn’t the mask. VoDkA wasn’t who he wanted to be, VoDkA was who he was. When he looked in the mirror, VoDkA stared right back at him, stone cold and angry, and I think a part of him despised him. Dylan was the mask, kind, sweet, and unassuming. Dylan was who he wanted to be, who he hid inside and thrived in. But unlike Eric, VoDkA knew how to shoulder his mask. And it’s in this way, that we see both their personas documented in journal form…
(Btw I am using the Batman v Superman Bruce Wayne, y’all)
Not being entirely sure as to how it all even happened
On the off-chance that you’re one of Gotham’s minimal elite, you probably met Bruce at a charity gala and, for some reason beyond your comprehension, he picked you out of the other well-dressed women
In the higher likelihood that you don’t come from an affluent family, there’s a multitude of possibilities as to where you met: Maybe you were at a gala working as part of the catering company and he accidentally spilled red wine on you. Maybe you worked as an intern or temp or had a desk job somewhere in the Wayne Enterprise building in Gotham. Or maybe he just saw some assholes giving you a rough time and he stepped in and then offered to walk you home.
taako falling in love with kravitz must’ve been weird for him too, like. he’s obviously attracted to him and develops a crush on him within a minute, but the actual falling in love part woulda’ been hard for him to process. he’s not someone who’s really used to…expressing genuine affection to people because of his trauma, except for people that he’s had time to personally bond with and come to trust and care about (hurley, ren and angus, most notably)
and he can’t have that kind of bond with merle or magnus - he spends too much time with them for them to know anything too personal about him, it’d be too uncomfortable and humiliating for him to have that kind of knowledge floating around people he has to make eye contact with everyday. that’s why he’s emotionally withdrawn from the other horny boys, and emotionally drawn to people he doesn’t see too often/doesn’t have to explicitly plan to see them again, but still has enough time to bond with and trust and care for
(you can tell he really likes people when he meets up with them despite not having to, i.e. ren and angus, and later kravitz in a romantic condition, whereas he only hangs out with merle and magnus for work stuffs, and has shown to dislike their continued presence outside of jobs)
he didn’t have much of that bonding time in tck with kravitz because, well the world was ending, but he did have time to realize that kravitz was utterly adorable, and he got time to learn more about him on their date; he got to see kravitz’s gentle, caring and patient side, the side that cared about taako’s life and safety and would even make a deal with the goddess of death in order to keep him alive. and god, who wouldn’t fall in love with that?
and obviously this is all you need to shut down any argument about how taako only went on the date with kravitz to manipulate him into saving their lives; if that was all he wanted, taako never would’ve told kravitz straight to his face that he liked him. he never would’ve fought desperately with his umbrastaff to keep it from shooting kravitz. he never would’ve giddily agreed to meeting up with kravitz again, and he never would’ve felt his heart explode when he thought he heard his voice.
it’ll take taako a while to realize just how deeply in love he is, and it’ll take him even longer to be okay with that; a lot of people he trusted before ended up screwing him over when he let his guard down around them. but it’s okay, because kravitz is patient with him and assures him everyday that he can take as long as he wants with accepting and expressing his feelings. they know they love each other and that’s all they really need to know
It was quite an interesting life you led. You were dating Kim Namjoon, a young successful writer who had his own publishing company. He was dashing and smart who treated you like a queen. People knew you had met him from your current boss Kim Seokjin. He was handsome and sexy, kind of an asshole but for some reason that worked for him. They had met in college, hating each other, competing against each other for grades, girlfriends, money, anything with an eyesight of each other. That was until one day they were assigned to be partners for a project in class. They had fought against it but surprisingly to them, they ended up liking each other. So much so that they ended up in bed together even more than that, they’ve been dating since.
