“Yeah, that was a dick move,” Dex says around a mouthful of bean and chicken. He’s got some guac on his shirt and something brown and unidentifiable on his chin. It’s objectively disgusting.

“You’re disgusting,” Nursey informs him. “And it was a total dick move.”

Dex chews and swallows before he talks again, at least.

“I’m sorry,” he says for the thousandth time, slumping back against the cabinets. “I didn’t think about you and how you would react, and that’s shitty. That’s a shitty way to treat anyone, let alone your boyfriend.”

It’s not the first time Dex has apologized since they started fighting, but it’s the first one where he’s actually acknowledged what he did and why it made Nursey upset. It’s really all that Nursey was looking for.

BTS | Lifeguards AU

I don’t really know why, but I just thought of the boys as lifeguards and wanted to make a few quick aus about it haha.  I’m also a certified lifeguard, which helped a lot while writing these.  Hope you all enjoy!

Rap Monster

  • Is a lifeguard at this enormous water park that is known for their wide selection of waterslides; they even have a wave pool!
  • Everyone who grows up within an hour of the park practically grew up there over the summers because it is relatively inexpensive and there’s a whole area for adults to relax without worrying about their kids.
  • To be completely honest Namjoon doesn’t think much of being a lifeguard, like yeah he is in charge of saving lives, but his heart is not really set on it, so it’s only temporary.
  • However, Namjoon really likes the pay and he has become friendly with all the other lifeguards so overall he actually doesn’t mind working there.
  • The only downsides are that the water park is located in the middle of nowhere, so the commute is just insane, but also that his station is usually at the top of one of the bigger waterslides…
  • It’s not really the height of where he is working that freaks him out, it is just the fact that he knows he is really clumsy, and is afraid that he will, one day end up tripping and falling into the slide,
  • Just the thought of it haunts his dreams, Namjoon is terrified of what all the other guards will think if that happens because he is relatively new to this job and cares what his coworkers think about him.
  • Usually his job includes him just waiting for when the person comes out of the water slide at the bottom and is a safe distance away for the next person to go,
  • so it’s a simple and easy going job for the most part,
  • that being said Namjoon still has that irrational fear of his and tries to switch shifts with people who work guarding the wave pool.
  • Can almost always be seen wearing a baseball cap and sunglasses, and because of this, sometimes the patrons think he’s all tough and stuff but in reality… no.
  • He’s so gentle and kind to others and is always extra polite to elders.
  • Owns too many articles of clothing and merchandise with peace signs on them to count.
  • During staff training Namjoon met another lifeguard who he quickly became friends with, who somehow convinced him to start training for a 15k marathon, 
  • completely regrets this decision with his entire body and soul because the training for a marathon is agony, but doesn’t want to leave his friend behind so keeps working at it.
  • Plus the training helped him get fit and bigger for the summer months when he is literally always wearing swim shorts and a tank top.
  • And you know Namjoon because you are also a lifeguard at the waterpark, and you two are sometimes on the same shifts at the wave pool.
  • You two have only had a few conversations together about casual things, but you’ve always been drawn to him because he always seems so friendly and gets along with everyone at the park, but most importantly…
  • You heard him rap once and it changed your entire world.
  • Like you showed up really early one morning because you wanted to get a head start on cleaning some of the large tubes that people use to go down some of the slides on (they became gross and some even started growing stuff on them),
  • , but when you walk into the locker room to change you hear the shower on the boys side (the locker room is only divided by a ¾ wall so it is only just enough to keep you from seeing into the other gender’s locker room),
  • And you try to be as quiet as possible, but then you notice that whoever is showering is singing - - no, rapping.  And they are REALLY good at it.
  • You’re not the biggest fan of rap music, but you can’t help but be pulled into this person’s rhythm and flow because it’s so unique and his voice is just so captivating?!  It’s like nothing you’ve ever heard before.
  • The person on the other side clearly doesn’t think that someone is also in the room because they start to get more passionate in their lyrics, so you try to change into your suit and uniform as quietly as possible, but you end up dropping your lock on the floor, 
  • The person on the other side of the divider instantly stops their rap, and honestly you are a bit disappointed, but you just carry on like nothing ever happened.
  • When you are finished changing you start cleaning the tubes like you originally intended and you catch a glimpse of Namjoon coming out of the staff locker room,
  • And you’re just like OH THAT MAKES SENSE, his voice is perfect for rapping,
  • and he notices you, but quickly ducks away.
  • You haven’t heard Namjoon rap since that incident, but it has been on your mind ever since, and you’ve even started listening to rap songs on your phone.
  • And things go back to normal, you even think that he forgets about the ordeal, but then one day you are guarding the wave pool and Namjoon is there on the other side watching his own zone when you notice that this one kid is having trouble staying above the waves and is getting pulled under,
  • , so you blow your whistle, signalling that you are about the do a rescue, and jump in to save the kid.
  • You hit the water and have no trouble swimming over to the kid, pulling him to the rescue tube and swimming back to the entrance.
  • It was a simple rescue and nothing serious happened so you let the boy go after you filed the paperwork, but it’s like a rule at the park that if someone performs a rescue, another guard has to throw a party that night.
  • So you go over to one of your colleague’s houses for your party and there are people everywhere drinking from red solo cups, and someone even brought cake (you thought that this was all a bit much considering that there are usually several rescues like this a week, but it’s all in good fun)
  • And Namjoon is there, but he’s sitting on the back porch drinking from his cup, and you don’t know how you came up with the sudden boldness to sit next to him, but you do,
  • and it’s a little awkward not going to lie, he’s wearing a black baseball cap backwards and has on a bunch of cheesy plastic necklaces with peace signs and hearts on them,
  • You ask him if someone was passing the necklaces out, but he says no, that they’re his, and that it’s weird but just kind of his thing.  So you start talking about that and he ends up taking one off and putting it around your neck.
  • “That was a really smooth rescue this morning by the way, you made it look easy,” He says, and you blush, not knowing what to say.
  • He offers you some of the drink from his cup, and you are about to refuse because you are not that into alcohol, but then he whispers that it’s just kool aid and that he always carries some packets in his pockets to parties because he can’t stand the taste of alcohol either.
  • Eventually it looks like people are starting to leave and Namjoon seems like he is about to get up and leave when you just blurt out,
  • “You’re really good at rapping by the way, I’ve never had the chance to tell you that.”
  • “You weren’t supposed to hear that,” he tries to tell you and brush it off, and you’re just like, “,but I did and you’re awesome dude,”
  • You stand up to face him, but stay quiet for a minute.
  • He just looks down as whispers, “Is it ok if like I kiss you or something, that just seems like the right thing to do to get you to stop talking about it?”
  • He DOES kiss you, and you DO go on a date that weekend, but you never stop asking him to rap for you, and he always gives in.

JIn

  • Technically is a lifeguard, but primarily works in the main office of the facility as a nurse.
  • Has a basket full of lollipops for all the kids that fall and skin their knees on the cement to make them feel better,
  • though half the time it is actually Jin who is eating them.
  • Doesn’t own a doctor’s coat because all he really has is a lifeguard’s CPR and first aid training as experience, but he does wear a large red fanny pack at all times,
  • inside he keeps all kinds of first aid supplies but it’s mostly just band aids and alcohol wipes,
  • ONLY USES BANDAIDS THAT ARE DEEMED CUTE, so like pink hello kitty and ones with Looney Tunes characters on them.
  • His uniform is similar to the other lifeguards in that he wears a plain white shirt with the facility logo on the breast along with the red swim shorts and his fanny pack.
  • Loves his job because he gets to work inside all day and enjoy the air conditioning while the other lifeguards have to sit in the sun all day and make sure that they are actively watching the pool,
  • however Jin does worry about the other lifeguards often and always asks them if they are drinking plenty of water and if they have reapplied their sunscreen because the sun is strong and dehydration is common among the guards.
  • Once when he first got the job Jin was working in his office when they made him switch with one of the other lifeguards *cough cough* Taehyung *cough cough* because they became super dehydrated and was about to pass out from heat stroke or something,
  • Anyway Jin was freaking out because he remembered everything from the training boot camps, but he was never that good at it and it felt like so long ago…
  • Nobody drowned so Jin is proud.
  • Jin has his own desk and room to himself, it’s very small and was probably at one point a closet for cleaning supplies, but he doesn’t mind because it’s quiet and there’s a long window along the wall that looks out over the pool.
  • In the “Health Center” as the sign on the door says, there is Jin’s desk and a plastic bed, the kind found in nurse’s offices at school, and a small filing cabinet filled with all the first aid supplies
  • And on the other end is a door to a small bathroom, a sink and a small mini freezer where Jin keeps all the ice packs (there are some also flavored ice pops in there too but shhh no one is supposed to know!)
  • That’s about all that can fit in there tbh.
  • When it’s a slow day, probably because not that many people are at the pool for some reason, Jin likes to take naps on the sick bed or just lay there and read a book.
  • You decide to come to the community pool every once and awhile because it’s nice and you need a change of scenery from time to time and IT’S SUMMER!  Time to find yourself so super nice looking dude to have a summer fling with…
  • - - what you don’t know - - 
  • So you just get to the pool and are finally ready after putting on all this sun block and making sure that your bikini looks perfect to get in the water,
  • , and it all happens so fast but you must have slipped on the wet pavement because you fall down and end up fainting without ever even getting into the pool.
  • You wake up a half an hour later on the sick bed in the Health Center and you’re confused?  and sore?
  • There’s a huge bruise on your hip and both your elbows are skinned,
  • And there’s Jin sitting in his desk chair, eating some ramen, and when he noticed that you’re awake he’s like Oh! thank God! and scoots over in the chair still.
  • You’re stunned into silence as he just keeps talking to you about where you are and why and just doing quick checks to make sure you don’t have a concussion, because OMG HE’S THE MOST ATTRACTIVE PERSON YOU HAVE EVER SEEN THROUGHOUT ALL YOUR YEARS ON THIS FORSAKEN PLANET
  • He introduces himself to you as Seokjin but that you can just call him Jin, and he is just so friendly and keeps talking so that it does not become awkward, and then you notice,
  • that it’s cold in the room, like really cold.
  • The air conditioner is on full blast and all of a sudden goosebumps are forming on your arms because all you’re wearing a bikini and you shiver,
  • Oh course Jin notices and without much thought into it he just stands up and TAKES HIS FRIGGEN SHIRT OFF AND HANDS IT TO YOU
  • if you didn’t have an irregular heartbeat before, you definitely do now because Jin is standing in front of you half naked, WITHOUT HIS SHIRT ON and wants you to put it on.
  • You do, and then Jin just kind of stops for a moment and realizes his actions and is surprised at himself, and that’s when it gets a little awkward.
  • “Um,,, can I uh, see your elbows uh,” Jin asks you, and you show him the scrapes.
  • He takes his time washing the dirt out of the scrapes and puts on some antibiotic ointment and two cute band aids with Mulan and Pocahontas on them.
  • Jin’s touch on your arms is so light and gentle and he’s an excellent caretaker.
  • When he’s done Jin suggests that since you fainted and you don’t have a concussion that you are free to go, but that he suggests that you stay there and rest for a bit longer, and you agree.
  • However neither of you move and you’re just kind of sitting across from each other, watching, until…
  • who made the first move is a mystery but somehow Jin’s lips are on yours and he’s pushing you to lie down on the bed, and you just make out with KIM SEOKJIN.
  • It’s crazy and you two know nothing about each other and neither oh you are the kinds of people who do this kind of thing,
  • ,but there’s a clear connection… all things considering, and his hands are in your hair while yours are on his bare chest, but then…
  • “Um… is it ok if you take your fanny pack off?”

Suga

  • Works at a recreation center and used to assist with swimming lessons, but that didn’t last long because he couldn’t figure out a way to keep the kids in line without scaring them, so eventually he just became a full time lifeguard.
  • Has no tolerance for any horseplay because he once had to rescue this young boy from drowning after his friend once knocked him into the pool wall and he hurt his head
  • Yoongi was able to pull the boy from the water, but his head was really bloody and he had to perform CPR and he had to do all of this with the parents over his shoulder crying, and it was just a lot for him to handle
  • The boy made it and is fine, but it was Yoongi’s first rescue and scared him half to death because they kid nearly died.
  • Blows his whistle often and sometimes proceeds to yell at the offender.
  • Is known as the ‘scary lifeguard’ because of his no nonsense attitude, so most of the time people just tend to stay away from his zones.
  • Rotates on shifts for the indoor and outdoor pools, but sometimes they have him just work the main desk or have him scrub the locker rooms clean, which sucks but a job is a job.
  • Became a lifeguard because he was one the swimming team all through his schooling years and won many awards for breaking records in the butterfly, which is his signature stroke (get what I did there haha),
  • anyway since he is such a strong swimmer his coach practically begged him to get his certification so that he could coach, and he did get the certification, but he has no desire to coach,
  • in fact he has little desire to swim either, that the swim team was just to add onto his college apps, but having a paying job is another thing and lifeguard seemed good as any.
  • His real passion is rapping, and he’s good, like really good, and he could probably go off and join some company label somewhere but he needs to stay home and take care of his family, so he doesn’t really mind all that much.
  • WILL WEAR SUNGLASSES INSIDE BE WARNED
  • He tends to show up a little late to work sometimes, and the boss has gotten so angry that they have gotten really close to firing him, but there’s just something about him that makes them keep him around.
  • So you’re an EMT and one day you are just driving around the town in your ambulance with your partner waiting to get a call when suddenly you get one for a drowning victim at the rec center, so you head off.
  • And you rush into the rec center heading towards the indoor pool area because that is where the man who meets you at the front doors says the emergency is and he leads you there…
  • You and your partner run down the stairs to the pool deck and you rush over to the crowd of people surrounding the victim while try your best at not slipping on the wet tiles,
  • and there’s Yoongi performing CPR on the victim… and he’s crying, tears rushing down his cheeks and he’s whispering something that you can’t really hear
  • He’s doing what he’s been trained to do perfectly and his rhythm is better than yours (probs because of his secret talent for rapping) and
  • you almost feel like interrupting would disrupt a kind of intimacy that was created there, but it’s your job and a young boy is dying so you rush over next to the lifeguard,
  • and you can now hear that he’s whispering, “No, not again,” over and over again. 
  • But you signal to him that you and your partner can take over and he backs up immediately and practically falls onto his back panting heavily,
  • did I mention that Yoongi isn’t wearing a shirt?, I feel like that’s an important detail, he jumped into the water with it on, but he took it off once he pulled the boy onto the pool deck because it was heavy and wet.
  • When you have finally worked to get the boy into stable condition, you prepare to load him up into the ambulance and you shout out, “Are any of you this boy’s parents?”
  • “No he just comes here to swim after school sometimes,” this bare chested, hella attractive lifeguard tells you, and you’re like oh, well someone needs to come to the hospital with him cause he’s still a minor…
  • And Yoongi immediately volunteers to go because there are other lifeguards on duty, but after this incident the pool will probably close for the rest of the day,
  • , and that is how you end up sitting next to Min Yoongi in the back of an ambulance, who is still not wearing a shirt might I add.
  • When you get to the hospital you hand the boy over to the doctors, and Yoongi thanks you for all your help.
  • He takes your hand in both of his and kisses it, kind of formally with a bow and then runs through the automatic hospital doors and doesn’t look back.
  • Now this young lifeguard is a complete stranger to you, but for some reason you can’t get him off your mind and every time you think of him your face blushes and the spot where he kissed your hand starts to tingle.
  • and it is by complete coincidence that you run into each other again.
  • You are at the DMV waiting on the hopelessly long line to get your new license plates when you see the familiar stranger walk in.
  • He sees you and smiles, once he gets his place in line he sits down right beside you, and you don’t know this but you’ve been on his mind too.
  • “The boy’s ok.” He tells you, and you hug him upon hearing the news, “That’s incredible, it’s all because of you, most guards wouldn’t have been able to keep someone alive that long before we show up, but you held that rhythm for what must have felt like forever,”
  • And he blushes, MIN YOONGI BLUSHES AND SMILES
  • “Is it that much of a surprise if I ask you to go get coffee with me later?”

J-Hope

  • The pool he works at is at a sleepaway camp, and it’s small, only needs one lifeguard.
  • All the kids love him because he brings them new pool toys like the colorful noodles and wind up fish
  • AND I mean come on his smile just brightens everyone’s day, and his attitude is infectious,
  • like though watching over the pool is technically his only responsibility he goes out of his way to teach the campers about the water and often sits in on different classes like arts and crafts or archery.
  • Doesn’t really mind when the children get a little crazy with the splashing and screaming because they’re just kids and they just want to have fun and really no one is getting hurt so what’s the harm?
  • That is until it gets a little out of control and he can’t see everyone which is when it becomes a safety hazard, so he’ll blow his whistle.
  • His wrists are covered in lanyard bracelets that the campers made for him during arts and crafts, and he always tries to make them back for everyone who gave him one, but he is not that good at them and there are just too many kids.
  • doesn’t own any standard lifeguarding swim shorts, instead he just wears his normal swim trunks and a tie dye shirt
  • stereotypical lifeguard who puts sunscreen on their nose and wears sunglasses
  • Every morning has to wake up a little early to clean the pool and pick out all of the bugs and frogs that flown in during the night.
  • Hoseok is essentially the only person taking care of the pool so he feels like he needs to take extra special care of it because it’s practically his,
  • though in reality it’s a hunk of junk, the cleaning and filtration systems are constantly failing and most of the pipes are covered in cobwebs.
  • to put it simply the pool is disgusting, but the campers don’t mind and neither does Hoseok because it’s 100 degrees (F) and there is no air conditioning.
  • Sometimes when the pool gets especially gross and green he lifeguards the lake waterfront so that the campers can still get a way to cool themselves off and have fun.
  • Has a class once a week where he takes some of the campers out onto the lake in kayaks and canoes and for a few hours they just explore the lake
  • And you are just one of the many counselors at the camp in awe of how Hoseok just is always so awesome with like everything,
  • the kids love him without even trying, he always stays cool under stress, he is a genuinely kind person who is looking out for others, AND the most frustrating, when he sweats he doesn’t get all gross and smelly like everyone else, he almost seems to be… glowing?
  • and of course you are friendly with Hoseok because you always stand by his chair when you take your group of kids to the pool and he is quite a talker
  • He also has shown up to a few of the staff parties, the ones that happen once the kids are asleep, and hung out with the counselors and staff,
  • And today is just like any other day in that after the pool the kids will dry up and head to the dining hall for lunch and then hammock area for siesta,
  • , and the kids are being a bit loud and it’s getting a little past the point when Hoseok usually signals that it’s enough with his whistle when one of the campers runs up to you asking where another camper is
  • and you are like “it’s ok I’m sure they are just in the bathroom, we’ll find them.” but you don’t remember being asked for someone to leave and all of a sudden you’re freaking out because WHERE ARE THEY OMG,
  • Hoseok notices that something is wrong by the look you give him and immediately starts scanning the pool
  • He blows his whistle and calls for the kids to have a buddy check, but then as the campers are exiting the pool you two spot the missing camper struggling in the water and whimpering that they don’t think they’ll make it to the edge.
  • RESCUER MODE ON!  Hoseok jumps into the pool with his shirt and sandals still on, and you’re pretty sure his phone was still in his pocket as well, but you don’t care because your camper is in trouble!
  • Of course Hoseok reaches the troubled swimmer and pulls them to the shallow side of the pool and to the wall where he helps them out.  They are coughing up a bunch of water, but is unharmed
  • And you are right at your camper’s side, but don’t really know what to do and then there’s Hoseok just comforting the child and his hair is all wet and sticking to his forehead and you never really considered just how ATTRACTIVE he is, like goddamn.
  • but you try and ignore those thoughts because your camper needs you right now, but at the same time Hoseok is just thinking about how he always thought you were pretty and motherly, but now as you are comforting the kid it’s dawning on him how he definitely has a crush on you.
  • After everything is under control and the camper is breathing fine again you start barking orders for everyone to grab their stuff because you are already late for lunch
  • As you are about to walk out of the pool gate you turn around to Hoseok to thank him and you two just kind of collide…
  • lips and all.  You bumped your upper lip into his really hard, but somehow that doesn’t matter because he is kissing you and omg HOSEOK IS KISSING YOU and he’s really good at it.
  • “We definitely need to do that again.” he says and you agree, you agree so embarrassingly fast.

Jimin

  • Works at a really nice beach with Jungkook as a lifeguard, and spends most of his days walking up and down the beach front looking for seashells.
  • If you don’t know him it may seem odd to see a lifeguard pacing the shoreline for hours on end, with his head down looking at the ground, like aren’t they supposed to be watching to make sure everyone is safe?
  • And yes of course, but Jimin is really good at watching the water while he looks for shells and can still spot an emergency and react fast enough that the boss doesn’t really mind if he is just looking for more shells to add to his collection or whatever he does with them.
  • Jimin wears a first aid pack on his waist, but in reality he just uses it for the most part to store all the cool shells he finds in,
  • Everyday he comes home and empties his pack of shells and sorts through them again, making sure that he only grabbed the good ones and throws away the chipped or broken pieces.
  • And then the next morning he starts off the day again with an empty pack to find more, and it’s just a calming activity of his.
  • Sometimes he just gives the seashells he collects to the young children at the beach trying to get them to behave for their parents.
  • Jimin also really enjoys boogie boarding and keeps a few boards in the back of Jungkook’s pickup truck, so that he can get in the water and ride during his breaks.
  • Speaking of Jungkook’s pickup, Jungkook gives Jimin rides to work every morning and they always fight over what is playing on the stereo because Jungkook always wants to listen to alternative music but Jimin has softer tastes,
  • he likes some jazz and slow rock, but Jungkook always wins so Jimin gives in and always ends up jamming to the music anyways because he secretly actually knows all the words too.
  • The worst thing about working at the beach in Jimin’s opinion is all the seagulls… he hates seagulls, they freak him out with their squawks and he thought he once saw once steal his packed lunch, but then again that could have also been Jungkook. 
  • Jimin took on yoga as a hobby at some point and sometimes when the sun is rising, does yoga on the beach before his shift starts,
  • He has an extra mat for Jungkook, but he always refuses and Jungkook just watches his best friend while he sits in the sand.
  • LOVES, absolutely loves the feeling of sand between his toes, so he almost always walks around the beach barefoot, which was tough at first because the sand got so hot in the afternoon, but after time he just got used to it and it doesn’t bother him anymore.
  • The cutest thing about lifeguard Jimin is that while he walks around the beach looking for seashells he holds his rescue tube across his chest and under his armpits.
  • One day while walking up and down the beach looking for shells on his lunch break as he’s eating his sandwich,
  • he ends up walking much further than usual, and without noticing it ends up on the part of the beach that is privately owned by the several beach houses on the shore.
  • He knows that he should go back because his break will be up soon, but he’s never been to this area of the beach before, so there are so many beautiful shells that he has yet to have collected.
  • And all he’s doing is collecting seashells, but for some reason your dog absolutely can’t stand that there is a stranger on the property and just won’t shut up barking at Jimin through the window.
  • You are in your bedroom trying to study, but your dog’s barking is driving you nuts and you just can’t focus,
  • so, you go out (more like storm out) of your room to try and quiet your dog, but then as you are pulling them back off of the window you see this boy on your beach picking something up,
  • Now you are not the kind of person who really cares if someone from the public beach stumbles along and ends up on your property, as long as they just don’t set up their umbrella and chairs there, but you really need to study and your dog just won’t stay quiet.
  • You walk out onto your back porch, and the swing of the door shut is enough to get the boy’s attention, so he looks up, and you’re just…
  • it’s his face it’s so angelic and pretty and soft looking, and he waves at you and the muscles in his arms are flexing and he just looks so goddamn strong?
  • you’ve never seen anyone look like him before and you want to run back inside to disappear because compared to him you feel like an ogre with your band t shirt and pajama shorts, last night’s make up face and messy hair, and your prickly legs (in your defense you shaved two days ago, but it seemed to have started to grow back)
  • “Oh uh hi sorry if I was bothering you.  I was just looking for shells, but I’ll leave.” ugh even his voice is pretty.  You notice then that he is wearing a lifeguard’s swim shorts and tank, so he must work down the road.
  • And you just say that your dog was being annoying while you were trying to study for this really important test that you have to take in order to earn an extra credit over the summer, and he’s just like,
  • “Sorry, no problem, I totally get it.  I probably should go before Jungkook starts making a scene anyway.” 
  • , and you don’t know who Jungkook is, but you nod anyway, and go back inside because he’s walking away.
  • And tbh you basically forget all about your encounter with Jimin, but then one night your friends actually are able to convince you to go to a bonfire party on the beach about ten minutes down the road, and like he’s there,
  • Jimin is at the party and he is talking to another boy around his age, maybe a year or so younger, but the other boy is leaving the party just as you are getting there, so Jimin is left alone.
  • You freak out a little bit because you want to talk to him, but you just don’t know what to say,
  • When you control over yourself you just get in line for some of the drinks that will hopefully give you enough courage to talk to the handsome lifeguard.
  • It works much better than you anticipated and you march over confidently to the boy starting a conversation, all while pretending that your little encounter never happened.
  • And you learn his name is Jimin, and he is actually so charming and you are having a really good conversation when all of a sudden, someone starts screaming something about skinny dipping,
  • and while you may have thought that Jimin was not the skinny dipping type, he starts taking off his clothes just like everyone else, and you are not one to hold back, especially now that you have so much alcohol in your system.
  • Just like that everyone is running naked into the ocean, and the water is so cold on your bare skin, but it’s such a liberating feeling.
  • Later that night you end up being walked back to your house with the help of some of your friends and you fall asleep with a smile on your face because Jimin was so much more charming than you ever thought he could be, and also, you know…
  • YOU GOT TO SEE JIMIN NAKED SO PLUS PLUS!
  • The next morning you wake up with a massive headache to a series of knocks on your front door.  You trudge to the front door not really caring who sees you looking like such a mess because you feel so awful, 
  • , but there he is again.  Jimin is at your door and he brought you gifts,
  • “First is pills for your hangover because you sure as hell have one after last night,” he says, and then after you take them with a glass of water he cutely reaches around his back and pulls out a beautiful seashell necklace.
  • And it’s not like one of those tacky looking ones, this one is so beautiful and when he tells you that he made it himself you don’t believe it because it looks professionally made…
  • turns out that Jimin makes a lot of the shells he collects into jewelry and sells it,
  • You accept his gift, and maybe it’s the pills, or maybe you’re just crazy, but Jimin is standing in your living room and all you can look at is his lips, and he’s doing the same to yours.
  • *kiss*

V

  • Works at the community pool during the summers and absolutely loves watching all the kids splashing around in the water all day having a ball.
  • Became a lifeguard because he didn’t want an overly serious summer job and is a relatively strong swimmer, so he took a lifeguard training course,
  • he then learnt that it IS in fact a very serious job, but also that it has a lot of perks like getting paid for sitting in a chair all day and he gets discounts on swimwear at stores so it’s like a win-win.
  • Spends his shift in the lifeguard chair in front of the water slide and is in charge of monitoring when it is safe for the next person to go down.
  • Sometimes he ends up watching the children’s water jungle gym area and gets to actually play with the kids, splashing in the water with them…
  • and then gets scolded by the other guards because he is supposed to making sure everyone is staying safe, not playing with them!
  • Likes to eat ice cream when he’s sitting on the lifeguard stand and it gets all over him and his fingers are usually sticky until he cleans himself off in the water.
  • Still, he has ice cream stains all over his white lifeguard shirt and swim shorts.
  • wears socks and flip flops, he’s THAT person,
  • Has this awesome pair of red cat-framed sunglasses that he found in some old box somewhere of his parent’s old stuff and wears them all the time
  • Never blows his whistle… though when he first got the job it was his favorite thing to do until he realized it frightened some of the kids
  • On the weekends Tae teaches swimming lessons to all the kids and people who don’t know how to swim or are looking to improve themselves,
  • and frankly he makes significantly more money during these lessons than just lifeguarding, but he never has considered dropping one for the other because yes swimming is important, but being a good swimmer isn’t always going to keep you safe in the water
  • during his breaks he likes to jump into the kiddie pool and just lay in the shallow water and think, that is until one of the kids splash him and an all out splashing war erupts.
  • And you like to come to the pool with the young boy you babysit because it’s a nice change from the park and you can sit back and relax and listen to music while tanning in the sun while he swims with his friends
  • But this time as you are settling into your lounge chair with your earbuds in and a magazine, you find yourself paying less attention to the boy and you end up falling asleep.
  • You wake up what is probably hours later and you have a minor heart attack because you don’t know where the boy you babysit is and he isn’t where you last saw him.
  • You go to look for him but you are covered in a horrific sunburn all the way from your chest and neck to your knees and it burns so bad, but finding the boy is so much more important.
  • Running around the pool you are searching for the boy when you decide to look by the small food court to see if he is there, and when he isn’t you look around for a lifeguard to help you
  • Originally you didn’t want to make a scene by getting a lifeguard involved, but it’s gotten desperate.
  • And there’s Tae, clearly on break since he’s eating french fries at one of the picnic tables, but you don’t notice because you’re frantic, and you’re just explaining the situation to this ridiculous looking lifeguard with cat-framed sunglasses and hair in his face with socks and sandals on,
  • , but he’s listening to you and then reassuring you that this happens all the time, that he couldn’t have left the property
  • AND THEN… he takes off his sunglasses and you’re taken aback because he’s, beautiful, like so unbelievably pretty, and here you are with make up probably running down your face with a gross sunburn down your entire front, and you’re suddenly self conscious
  • Tae being Tae takes your hand when you are searching for the boy both because he’s childish and doesn’t understand the implications that may have, but he also wants to comfort you as you were clearly distressed.
  • He takes you to the loudspeaker where you make an announcement about the missing boy, and within minutes someone found him and brought him into the pool office,
  • You’re so grateful towards Tae, and when you ask how you can possibly repay him, he stays quiet and shrugs, that it wasn’t that big of a deal, that it is just part of the job, but it means so much more to you than that.
  • “How about ice cream then?” you ask him, and the smile on his face, like the sun, the sun, but then he’s like “Isn’t that kind of like a date then?”
  • and you’re kind of shocked because that wasn’t what you meant, but I mean you wouldn’t mind…
  • but Tae is then like, “Don’t worry, I want to go on a date with you,” so you three end up going to get ice cream after his shift is up, and he is so full of surprises and you can’t help but tell him that you should do it again sometime,
  • He agrees and on your next date (this time without the kid) he brings you some Aloe Vera for your sunburn and it’s so thoughtful, but it’s still kind of embarrassing because you were hoping that he wouldn’t have noticed, but then again how could he have not.

Jungkook

  • Works at the beach with Jimin, and thinks that being a lifeguard is super cool and edgy because he is saving people’s lives and gets to be on the beach all day
  • totally has a hero complex in that he puts up this arrogant facade whenever he is working, but in reality has a shelf in his bedroom dedicated to his favorite action figures.
  • Owns a shark tooth necklace and always wears it because he thinks it makes him look super cool and tough, especially when he is not wearing a shirt…
  • SPEAKING OF WHICH, whereas most of the guards wear a t shirt or a tank top, Jungkook never wears a shirt on duty
  • Never, and all the girls at the beach know him as this super hot and charismatic lifeguard, so he gets invited to all these beach parties by the people who live in the beach houses and have their own private beaches,
  • , but he rarely shows up to them and people think it’s because he was probably invited to a million other parties and just couldn’t make it… which is probably true that he was invited to others
  • but the real reason why he rarely shows up is because his mom has him on a strict curfew and he never really has the guts to sneak out of his window.
  • Owns this super old pickup truck that he drives everywhere, at some point it was probably blue but now it is so covered in rust and is so old that the blue looks like a dark gray,
  • the seats are this orangey yellow color and he never cleans it so the seats are always covered in crumbs and… his t shirt on the passenger seat.  There’s also a ton of energy drinks in the back of the truck in the tool kit.
  • Drives Jimin to work everyday and they always listen to Linkin Park cds and other alt bands in the truck
  • So he thinks that being a lifeguard at the beach is so cool and stuff, but then he actually had to jump in and save this girl once because she wasn’t a strong swimmer and the tide went out before she could get back to land
  • Since she was so far out in the sound it took Jungkook a while to reach her and carry her back to the beach, she had to be hospitalized because she was under the surface for so long,
  • , and Jungkook had never gotten nightmares before he saw this girl’s life nearly end right before his eyes, and reality hit him like a mother–
  • So for a while Jungkook got super serious about his job and it started to stress him out because it was a lot to hear about this responsibility he has, but experiencing it is a whole other animal, 
  • but then he meets you.
  • You frequent the beach often because you are a surfer and this beach has the biggest and best surfing waves,
  • and you talk to Jungkook sometimes when he is up in his lifeguard stand and not going to lie you two are massive flirts.
  • But that’s all it is, in reality Jungkook is barely even a friend, and his whole “lookin tough” vibe isn’t really your thing, but as you two get a little closer he opens up more and you see another side to him than just this beach hunk.
  • Anyway, so one day you are getting your board ready to out surfing like usual, but you get a weather alert on your phone, but you don’t really think much of it.
  • So you go out into the sound and the water is a little stronger today, but nothing really concerning,
  • and you see this wave start to build up really nicely nearby, so you obviously don’t think twice about catching it,
  • , but then when you first start riding it the wave grows considerably and soon you’re on this massive strong wave and you are losing control over your board because the wind is picking up.
  • After trying hard to stay on you give up and try to wipe out in a clean way so that you can keep going, but when you do the current sweeps you in and you can’t surface no matter what you do.
  • And while you are a very strong swimmer and even have your lifeguard certification, the water is stronger and it’s pulling you down and the more you struggle the weaker you become 
  • Back on the beach Jungkook sees you go down and doesn’t think much of it but keeps an eye out to see you resurface, but then you just don’t?
  • And he gets a little worried and stands up in his chair to get a better view because sometimes when you resurface you are far away from where you went in, but you’re nowhere in sight.
  • Jungkook blows his whistle and runs into the water with his rescue tube and swims faster than he has ever swam in his life because, while that girl was a stranger and he kind of knows you now and he can’t bear letting you suffer a similar fate,
  • mostly because you are super pretty and have nice eyes and legs and like talking to him and are flirtatious… basically he likes you… a lot.
  • He dives down to where you are sinking and pulls you up and into a calmer zone where your feet can touch the ground.
  • By then you have caught your breath and are holding onto the rescue tube for dear life, but since you are finally in a safe area Jungkook stops and turns to look at you, and
  • , and he has this look on his face, worry and relief and something else
  • “I’m fine,” you say to him, but then he grabs the side of your face and pulls himself to you, and his face is just there,
  • so close to yours and you lick your lips because his are centimeters away and you know what’s coming next,
  • “I’m not fine, you scared me to death.” and he kisses you.
  • He kisses you in the water for such a long time that you lose your breath all again, but this time it’s nice.
  • You two end up dating not long after that, and Jungkook convinces you to get a job at the beach so that you can be lifeguards together, and you end up agreeing
  • because not only do you want to spend more time with your gorgeous boyfriend, but Jungkook is also never going to stop getting dirty looks from all those other beach girls and you have to defend what’s yours.
  • the pay is also really good so…
  • You sit in between Jungkook and Jimin in the truck on the way to work every morning and on the way home every evening and jam with them to Linkin Park and eat energy drinks with the boys.

HOT TAKE: 407 is one of the best Kabby episodes ever

Y’all I just finished watching 407 and I’m here to tell you I would like us to keep Ron Milbauer and Terri Burton, the new writers who penned this episode, FOREVER AND EVER because they understand Marcus Kane and Abby Griffin down the deepest marrow of their bones and I am here for it.

First of all, let’s start with the mother/daughter feels because GOOD GOD.  Remember “you may be the Chancellor, but I’m in charge”?  Remember that half-assed Polis hug last season?  Okay, now contrast that with the Clarke we got tonight, who ditched Roan at the Rover to do all the barrel-unloading so she could get to the lab and hug her mom sooner.  Let’s talk about how Clarke verbally, explicitly, canonically, needs her mother.  Let’s talk about Clarke worrying whether Abby is sleeping enough, being concerned that she’s not as fine as she appears to be, reluctant to leave her even long enough to take a shower and get something to eat because she just wants to be with Abby.  Let’s talk about Clarke understanding why her mother is so tormented by the decision to take a life and standing right by her side, full of unquestioning support and faith in her mother’s skills, even removing from Abby the burden of having to choose which of them is expendable.  Let’s talk about how few episodes in four seasons have shown us a Clarke who values and appreciates and respects Abby. 

Also let’s talk about the Kellamy of it all????  Like oh my God???  Let’s talk about how hard Kane has worked to put behind him the person he used to be on the Ark, and how long it’s been since he really, truly had to confront the reality that just wanting to be a better man doesn’t erase the things he did back before he was that man. Let’s talk about how two contradictory things can be true at the same time, about how Bellamy can simultaneously feel respect and affection and trust for the Kane he knows now and also never be able to erase the memory of what Kane did to his mother.  Let’s talk about the “I’m sorry” outside the Rover in the rain and just how many different things are contained inside that, how many things Kane is trying to apologize for.  Let’s talk about how Bellamy’s desperation to save those two stranded men because he’s afraid he can’t save Octavia is a direct mirror for the way Kane begs Bellamy not to go out after them, not to risk his life, not to get out of the Rover, trying to protect Bellamy as a way to atone for all the people he hasn’t been able to save.  Let’s talk about how this whole season has been chock full of delicious Season 1 throwbacks and this stark reminder of Ark!Kane is one of them.  Let’s talk about how Kane, who hitherto has had some beautiful material but not much of an arc, is now squarely in a position where he has to face the two different versions of himself: the man he used to be, who did awful things he still torments himself for, but was an effective leader … or the man he wants to be, who is kind and decent and loving and wants peace and believes in the goodness of people, but who has watched every single thing he tried to build get destroyed, from the Grounder truce to Arkadia itself.

Let’s talk about the possibilities Jaha brings into this - Jaha who made Ark!Kane who he was, in some ways that were genuinely terrible, but also has shown this season that he’s a demonstrably more crafty and intuitive politician, and maybe we’re about to see what happens when they recognize how much they need each other.

And let’s talk about Dad Kane and Harper, another kid who needs him, another person he’s trying to save.  Let’s talk about Kane the Chancellor, who never stops working for his people, who just wants everyone to be okay, who is trying so hard to hold this fractured group of broken terrified people together. Let’s talk about “who we want to be doesn’t always win,” about how he gets punched in the heart by his grieving son, saying something he’s been needing to say and that Kane has been needing to hear for a long, long time, which has forced Kane to look head-on at the man he used to be - a man he doesn’t like very much, a man who made terrible choices - and recognize that wanting to erase that past doesn’t actually erase it, but it’s still important that you try.  Harper did everything right and a man still died, and there is nothing he can say to make that right, nothing he can do except tell her, “This feels brutally unfair because it is brutally unfair.”  And yet he also needs her to know what he tried so hard to tell Bellamy, that sometimes there are people you want to save and can’t and it will feel like it is your fault but it is not actually your fault.

And let’s talk about Kabby!  Yes, we want them back together, yes, this separation is making all of us crazy, but that scene over the radios was absolute gold.  It was the most Kabby that has ever Kabby’d.  Let’s talk about how the plot requiring these two be apart is annoying, but necessary (Kane is the Chancellor and Abby is the science goddess and their stories are geographically separated for reasons that are clearly legit), and how a lesser show that gave less of a shit about their adults would just be like “welp guess they’re apart for half a dozen episodes, who cares,” but instead the writers have chosen over and over to treat that separation as a plot point.  To show us both of them dealing with that separation.  To see how the separation affects their relationship.  

Let’s talk about these two being married as hell, two fucked-up but emotionally mature adults in steady and grounded love with each other, who know each other on so deep and profound a level that it is heart-shattering.  Let’s talk about Kane telling Abby her greatest strength is her humanity.  Let’s talk about Abby knowing that Kane is the only person she trusts to advise her on a question this huge and terrifying.  Let’s talk about how her hands stop shaking when she hears his voice. Let’s talk about how the line in the trailer we hear her say to Raven is another one of those classic Kane-and-Abby-use-each-other’s-words-in-times-of-crisis … like “there has to be another way,” like “they need someone to show them the way out of the dark.” 

Let’s talk about how Kane goes straight from being confronted by Bellamy (“you floated my mother”) into a sober and honest conversation with Abby about how careful you have to be when you make the choice to take a life.  Let’s talk about how in that moment he is the most fully Marcus Kane he has ever been, he’s the warm kind man who loves her and he’s the adopted father trying to protect his children and he’s the Chancellor leading his people but he is also the man who floated Aurora Blake on the Ark and ordered the Culling, and she knows that, which is why she asked him.  

Let’s talk about how every single thing that makes Abby Griffin who she is (her humanity, her empathy, her brilliance as a doctor, her scientific mind, her love for Clarke, her abhorrence for violence, her desire to save everyone, her relentlessness, her deep intuitive understanding of Marcus) and every single thing that makes Marcus Kane who he is (the way his past never stops haunting him, his desire to save Bellamy from making the mistakes he made himself, his empathy, his protectiveness of the kids, his leadership abilities as Chancellor, his stubbornness, his implicit faith that Abby will always do the right thing) were on display in tonight’s episode, no matter how painful it was to watch.

Prompt: “I thought I lost you”

******

Feyre is buttering her toast while Rhys talks about their plans for the day, his early morning energy soothing to her. Since the war ended they have settled into a regular routine of breakfast together, followed by work (there is always some Lord or another who wants something from one of them), followed by a late dinner. Their routine is comfortable, domestic, and maybe even a bit boring – just the way they had hoped it would be. The beginning of their relationship had been fraught with enough problems to fill more than one lifetime, so the simple act of sitting down to breakfast with Rhys, after having woken up in his arms, is all that Feyre wants.

Unless she wakes up in a mood like this. She is feeling slightly restless, like she has an itch she needs to scratch and she isn’t even certain what kind of itch it is or how to take care of it…

Rhysand continues talking about their plans, about where he needs to go and who he needs to see, and she lets her attention wander innocently. He is saying something now about Tarquin and her thoughts begin to drift back to the past, trying to piece together what it is she needs now.

The first time they had been to the Summer Court wasn’t exactly pleasant, but in the years since they have made their peace with Tarquin, however tenuous it may be. The Summer Court, however, has a lovely beach, on which they could spend an afternoon wrapped in each other… Of course there are other places in Prythian that they could go for a bit more privacy. There is always the cabin, but that isn’t quite what she needs. Her mind begins to wander even further away from what Rhys is saying, thinking of the places she hasn’t been yet, the places she wants to go…

“Feyre?” Rhysand’s voice cuts into her thoughts, forcing her to push them to the back of her mind. Realizing that he was still speaking and she hasn’t heard a word he said, she smiles with embarrassment.

“Yes,” she asks, clearing her throat.

“I thought I lost you,” he says slyly, suspecting the turn her thoughts have taken.

She smiles innocently at him. “Not a chance. But I don’t think we should do anything you just said,” she adds bluntly. “I have a better idea.”

“Really? And what does my High Lady want to do today?” While he is not entirely sure what is on Feyre’s mind, he has been working as much as she has, and has an idea that what she is going to say involves nothing like responsibility. She still keeps the walls in her mind up – a necessary precaution for a High Lady – and he doesn’t mind affording her that privacy.

“First, keep calling me your High Lady,” she demands.

“Done, High Lady.” She raises her eyebrows at him. “My High Lady. Apologies.” He grins wickedly at her, liking where this game is going.

“Second, I want you to take me to the Winter Court. I’ve heard they have some hot springs there that are quite restorative.” She tilts her head and shifts her shoulders so one strap of her nightgown falls slightly. She doesn’t make any moves to replace it. “And they even have some where you can bathe nude.”

He growls under his breath. “And this is what my High Lady wants?”

“I’m not done,” she says sharply. He raises his hands in submission, asking her to continue.

“I want to go to these hot springs, and I want you to myself. I want you to stop thinking about the other Courts, other fae, I don’t care who they are. I want you to think only of me.” As she finishes, she dips her finger into the jar of jam on the table, licking it off without breaking eye contact.

“Is there anything else you need,” he asks, attention fully on her in a way that it hadn’t been before.

“Before we go, I want you to take me back to our bedroom and help me get ready. I am quite… tense this morning, and I don’t want to travel like that. You don’t want me to travel like that.”

He nods in agreement. “How do you suppose I help you… relieve the tension, Feyre darling?”

Feyre stands from the table. “You know exactly how, dearest.”

He stands after her, hands braced on the table that separates them. He pushes it aside in a quick, rough movement, disturbing the plates and food. Strolling up to her, a contrast to the desperation of what he had just done, he hooks a finger on the strap still hanging from her shoulder.

“Would it have anything to do with me fucking you until you forget your own name,” he asks, slowly pulling the strap downward until her shift is hanging on her precariously.

“You know it does,” she whispers in his ear. She nips at his neck before turning and making her way towards their bedroom.

“As you wish, my High Lady,” he says, grinning and grabbing at her as she runs down the hallway, laughing.

I still have a couple of these in my inbox, but… I love these prompts? So send more if you want, because I am a glutton for it, apparently. Dialogue prompts (2, 9, 41, 45, 50, 53, 71, 132, and 134 already done/working on)

If I had to think of the superhero most likely to totally transform the entire world, it’d be the Golden Age Starman. He invented a cosmic control rod that allows for antigravity, forcefields, and moving objects at a distance, all of which are powered by an endless, totally renewable power source (starlight). Basically, he invented the Mass Effect in 1942, combined with free energy! Ted Knight made a discovery that could change the world in a way that would make the Industrial Revolution look quaint.

“But superheroes often have advanced technology, and they don’t change the world!” Actually, there are usually lots of good reasons for why superhero tech doesn’t change the world…none of which apply to Starman. Tony Stark’s Iron Man suits are hundreds of millions of dollars each and with their price tag, they couldn’t be mass produced even if Tony Stark didn’t guard the technology so jealously. Starman was wealthy enough to dedicate himself to science, but there is no talk of the Control Rod having a high per-unit cost.

And while Superman has access to Kryptonian superscience a thousand years or more ahead of earth, he’s an alien and he has vowed not to interfere with human development. Starman, by contrast, is as earthly and human as they come, and he has no access to advanced technology. He didn’t find the Rod in a crashed UFO next to a dead alien, it isn’t a one-of-a-kind….he made it himself and can make many more.

And what’s more, the cosmic control rod has almost entirely peaceful applications: in the form it currently exists, its heat beams are far more effective than handguns or even artillery, but it can’t kill millions like an atomic bomb.

The best explanation I can possibly think of for why Starman’s rod doesn’t change the world is that Ted Knight’s invention is so incredibly ahead of its time that people don’t even understand what he did, even if it was explained to them. There’s some support for this idea; when Ted Knight was transported to the 30th Century, Star Boy tells Starman that though he was not understood in his own time, by the 30th Century, he’s considered on a par with Newton and Einstein.

There is, however, a chilling possibility. If Ted Knight could discover the principles of the Control Rod…someone else could, too.

dracarys--stormborn  asked:

I know I'm kinda late but how do you feel about the TVD finale and what they did to Stefan? Especially when they said that Damon's better than him? Also, Stef had more chemistry with Elena while she was unconscious than any Delena scene lol.

So, as you all know by now I didn’t actually watch the finale, but I read about what happened on Tumblr and I saw a couple of gif sets, so I do have a couple of thoughts about the finale.

- About what they did to Stefan: I’m not going to lie, I would’ve preferred it if Stefan and Elena would’ve been allowed to ride off into the sunset together because they’re the only couple that made sense as endgame all along, literally the only couple. But since it was made abundantly clear that wasn’t going to happen, I’m actually quite happy with how it turned out. Because not only did Stefan do what he always does, which is stepping up and keeping those he loves safe, he also found peace, and not just peace, oh no, he was reunited with his very best friend and I kind of found that heartwarming. It wasn’t the happy ending I hoped for when I started watching, but under the given circumstances, I really think it was the best ending possible for us Stefan stans.

- About what he said about Damon: I’m not even mad, the show has been using other characters to prop up Damon through dialogue for years now. Stefan always excused Damon’s behavior, he always made it seem like something Damon was not, he always gave Damon credit even though he never deserves it, he has been pushing Elena back to Stefan since season five, so what Stefan said in the finale didn’t get to me because, well, it was big fat bullshit but it was nothing new.

- About the DE scenes: first of all, let me just say how happy I am they didn’t even get a conversation. Like, they hugged, they kissed, they held hands, and that’s it. I was prepared for something much, much, much worse. And then there’s the painful, hilarious lack of chemistry between them. Because not only did Ian choose to kiss Nina’s chin instead of her lips (no amount of slowmotion and over the top lighting and fancy camera angles can hide that, dear TVD crew), he also couldn’t even be bothered to not look constipated when he held her hand. Like, those scenes were so bad it still makes me laugh and it’s been weeks. xD 

- About Katherine’s “comeback”: I only have one thing to say: what were the writers thinking??????

- About endgames: when it comes to endgames, I have to say I found SE to come out looking best. Not only because of the fact that DE didn’t even spend the afterlife together (we’re supposed to believe they’re ‘epic soulmates’ but it was like Elena just lived her life as best as she could because she owed Stefan that and then she bailed as soon as she died xD) but also because of that final SE scene, the physicality, the chemistry. Yes, sure, the dialogue was about Caroline and Damon, but just look at that scene. Mute the scene and look at it, and it’s our beautiful SE endgame. Nina and Paul brought their A game one last time and it is something to be grateful for. Over the course of eight seasons, SE got the best lines, the best scenes, the best chemistry, SE actually had it all and the series finale reconfirmed that. They’re endgame, guys. Maybe not ‘technically’, but they looked and felt like the real endgame couple. Plus, that scene of Elena writing in her diary near his grave… Like, the diaries were something that connected them and when they got together, they didn’t need them anymore because they had each other to talk to instead, and as soon as they were apart, they started writing in those diaries again. Stefan was always the one Elena could truly be herself with, and now that he died, she dug up her diary and wrote in it while looking at the crypt where he was buried and there’s something morbidly poetic about it. It’s SE, it has always been SE. (I also have to add I loved that Elena left her necklace on his grave or whatever, because if Kevin did one thing right in that final episode, it was making sure everyone knew that necklace was always meant to be an SE symbol, he righted JP’s wrong with that and it’s awesome because now DE is actually literally left with nothing. Think about it.)

- And last but not least, about me being petty: and this is me being really petty, but can I just say how hilarious it is that Stefan chose to die rather than spending a single day married to Caroline? xD

Jealousy and obsession

Word count: 1552

Kai is obsessed with you

‘Anyone home?’ Kai asked walking through the front door, only to find Damon sitting on the couch and reading newspaper.

'What are you doing here?’ He grunted and rolled his eyes as he went back to reading the newspaper that were already too old to even believe the news that were written there.

'Oh just came to hang out with my favorite people.’ Kai said, making Damon frown at his response and place down the newspapers.

'Ok. First of all, we are definitely not friends nor you’re my favorite person. Second, we never, ever hang out and third, aren’t you suppose to be on your way to Portland? I thought we were done with all the interacting with eachother thing.’ Damon trailed off and picked up the newspaper again, reading the same page for the third time, clearly finding it hard to focus when the least favorite person of them all was sitting beside him, in his house.

'Oh, don’t be so stressed, Damon. I’m just visiting, you know. Also, you always have something to eat here so, may I?’ Kai got up and started walking towards the kitchen, but Damon stopped him by vamp speeding in front of him.

'Hold up, pork rind muncher. What’s really going on?’ Damon asked as he crossed his arms which only made Kai roll his eyes and walk back, plopping down on the couch, his arms widely spread.

'Nothing, I was just- hey are you, you know, alone here or is there someone else here with you?’ Kai asked as he looked around the living room, hoping to find another person in this gigantic house.

'It’s me and- wait a second. I know what you’re doing.’ Damon smirked and walked towards Kai, his gaze focused on Kai. 'You’re here for the only girl who’s been currently hanging around in this house a lot. Someone who’s here more than any other girl, right?’ Damon asked and poured himself a glass od bourbon and took a sip, his left hand slipping inside his pocket.

'I- what are you talking about? I literally have no idea what you’re talking about.’ Kai negated, stressing the 'no’ in the sentence, trying to prove he really didn’t know what Damon was talking about, but he perfectly knew what Damon meant. He was there for you and you only.

'You like her, don’t you? Hate to break it to you, but I don’t think she likes you back. I mean, as far as I know, she said she hates your guts and that she wants you to stay away from her.’ Damon said, making Kai’s face expression go from excited and smiley to serious and regretful.

'I hit the nerve didn’t I?’ Kai shook his head and looked away, wanting to hide the disappointment that words Damon has said caused.

'I don’t like her. I- I would never like a girl like her.’ Kai trailed off and right at that moment you walked into the room, making Kai jump from his seat and take a few steps closer to you. He was always mesmerized by the way he reacted when you entered the room. You took his breath away and he made peace with the fact that he was in love with you. Maybe those weren’t the right words. He was kind of obsessed with you and wanted to know everything about you, where you were, what you did, your friday night plans, everything. He didn’t want to let you out of his sight.

'Kai? What are you doing here?’ You asked him, your seriousness taking a smile of Kai’s face. He was hoping you would atleast smile at him, but you didn’t like him too much. You promised to yourself that you and Kai would be at 'hey - hey’ and that was it.

'Just came to- ask Damon if he wants to go to the Grill for a drink?’ Kai said and looked towards Damon who placed his glass on the table next to the couch and walked towards Kai as he tapped Kai’s shoulder and few times.

'Yeah, you feel nothing. Sure sure.’ Damon trailed off and opened the doors, showing Kai to walk out.

'What is that all about? Wait, I’m gonna go with you, I’m meeting my friends there.’ You said as you took your jacket and fixed your hair before you walked past Kai and Damon, going out into a beautiful night, the sky filled with shiny stars.

'So, are there- are there going to be any guys or just girls?’ Kai asked you as you shot a glance at him and frowned, finding his question a bit too weird. (Why would he even ask that) - you thought to yourself before you shook your head, looking for the right words to answer him in a polite way.

'There will be guys.’ You answered. 'Even though I can’t see how is that any of your bussines but fine.’ You said quietly, hoping he didn’t hear you.

'So you have a date, then?’ Kai popped the question again, making you roll your eyes.

'No, it’s not a date. It’s an ordinary night out with friends. Why are you interested in me so much all of a sudden?’ You asked him, taking a few larger steps so you were walking in front of him, becoming in sync with Damon’s steps. 'I rolled my eyes so much , my nerves actually hurt.’ You whispered for only Damon to hear, making him let out a small chuckle. Kai frowned, hating the way you were treating him.

'Ok, this is me. Kai, it was- Damon, see you later.’ You gave him a kiss on the cheek, completely ignoring Kai as yoi walked into Mystic Grill, catching a sight of your friends.

'Maybe you should lay off the questions, you seem too obsessed with her. Calm down, man.’ Damon said to Kai and walked in, heading towards the pool.

Kai followed him, but his gaze quickly found you between your friends. He couldn’t take his eyes of you, wanting to see every move you made. You had a feeling that someone was staring so you turned around, only to see Kai’s gaze piercing into you, making you feel uncomfortable.

'Want a drink?’ Damon asked Kai and had to repeat the question because Kai was too busy looking at you the entire time.

'Dude, if you plan on staring at her the entire night, I’m outta here.’

'No, just- give me a minute.’ Kai trailed off and started walking in your direction, Damon’s eyes going wide.

'Hey guys! What’s up?’ Kai said and put his arms around your waist, pulling you closer to him which only made you uncomfortable. You frowned at him and pushed his arm away, but after s few seconds his arm was wrapped around you again.

'Kai, stop it.’ You whispered and it took him a few moments, but he took a step back from you, only to be replaced with one of your guy friends. He wrapped his arm around you and looked at Kai who was starting to get angry. His jaw clenched at the sight as he took a deep breath, trying to control himself. He wanted to break the guy’s spine and he could’ve done it so fast no one would ever notice, but he knew if he did, you would hate him.

'Why don’t you take your hand of the lady, would you?’ Kai said, his gaze strongly focused on your friend.

'No, I don’t think so, I like it this way. Also, I see it doesn’t bother her so, I’ll stay like this.’ He leaned in snd bit your earlobe, making you squirm in discomfort.

'Stop that.’ You said, trying to get away from his grip.

'Oh come one, there was always some sexual tension between us.’ He said, making your eyes go wide. Kai didn’t hesitate as he reached out his arm and threw the guy across the Mystic Grill, making him fall down on the table, wincing in pain.

'Kai! What are you doing?’ You yelled at Kai who looked lost at that moment.

'I- I gotta go.’ He muttered and rushed out of the grill as you followed his footsteps.

'What the hell was that? You can’t just ruin my night with friends by showing up and wrapping your arms around me, what- What were you thinking? I know you’ve been following me around like a crazy person. Look, I believe you can change, but, not like this. You can’t just do that. You need to control your jealousy, Kai. I have no intentions of getting involved with you in any way. Not now. So please, stop. Show me you’re better than this and then maybe, I’ll change my mind. Ok?’ You trailed off and got back inside, leaving Kai all alone in the dark, starry night. He roughly ran his fingers through his hair and punched the wall that was right in front of him. His actions might have ruined the chances with the only girl he ever cared about and he wanted to fix them, because the thought of not getting to see you was tearing him apart and he knew the only way he would get you, was if he showed you that he really can change.

Anyway about those vague castcu theories i mentioned the other day:

At the center of it all is this: Caster is the result of Lancer being hit by Fragarach back in fha. Fragarach is “a sword that severs the fate of the attackers” and directly this means severing the fate of being killed by each other, but narratively it severed Cu Chulainn from the tragic fate tied to his name.

The truth is that I still miss him. Every single day.

I wish I was a better friend, I wish I had been stronger.

With all my heart and soul, I had just wanted to be by his side and support him.

I’m sorry that I made stupid mistakes, that I crumbled when I shouldn’t have. 

Everyday I worry about him, wishing him peace and happiness.

I cannot describe how much it hurts.

I’m leaving him alone because he asked me to.

But it scares me that he won’t remember me for who I really am.

That he won’t remember that I am someone who truly cares for him.

What scares me the most is that he will keep destroying himself.

He is the most beautiful person I’ve ever met.

I know he has a kind heart, that he loves his cats, that he loves his plushies, how hard he tries, his brilliance and talent, I know how beautiful his soul is.

I just hope he saves himself. I’ve only ever wanted him to be happy.

I’m sorry it’s taking me forever to write up prompts. I’m trying to catch up, I promise. I thought I might actually finish one, just to hold off for the break I’m taking. Thank you all for your patience! This turned out a bit sadder than I initially planned.

“Where will you go?”

The question slithered in mind the moment they sat before the fire. A quickened fear rampaging in her chest, a temperament of despair. To be left alone once again would be a death sentence. The sweet taste might have sated her, but now she knew warmth as never before, she was unwilling to let go of it’s peace.

anonymous asked:

What kind of quirks would Zenyatta do that has the team to rethink about their view of their omnic friend?

Zen most likely would pull something when the team least expects it. 

He would still try to smuggle back in small animals into the base (Angela is like WHERE did all these cats come from because Winston is apparently allergic to cat’s fur lol)

Zen making a peace sign when there is a discourse. Before anyone could react, he puts it on his forehead and says, “you have made me pull a frown.”

He has a damn mighty fine green thumb. So whatever pots of plants he has, he manages to grow them twice the size. Genji is half exasperated and amuse that his room is more like a jungle than an actual sleeping area. (but its fine because Zen does not need to sleep anyway) 

Zen rarely plays games but whenever D.va invites him, he is actually good at them and is able to low-key dish out some gitgud comments that is neither too offensive but just. gitgud man. 

Saying that he “will not juggle” but when the team turns their back to him, Zenyatta does an impressive feat of juggli- the team turns again and he’s there floating serenely.

Lucio, Jesse and Lena think that he cheats when playing poker because he seems to win every single damn time. Morrison wonders if they would realize that it’s useless to try beat Zenyatta at poker when he has a very good poker face that is, yknow, unmovable. That and Zenyatta actually cheats lol.

When asked about it, he would airily tells them that, “life is more than a series of ones and zeroes.” and they would be like wtf?? what does that mean

Basically Zen would find a way to secretly troll on them. 

Imagine Loki is betrothed and married to the daughter of a ruler of another realm, as part of a peace treaty made by Odin. Loki’s new wife is extremely shy and seems almost afraid of Loki, despite his best efforts to show her kindness and gentleness. She also refuses to share a bed with him, let alone have sex. After months of tension, Loki has finally had enough. He confronts her and asks her (rather harshly) what her problem is. She tearfully confesses that Loki is not her first husband. She had been married several years ago, to a noble in her realm. But after learning she is barren and can never have children, he became very abusive both verbally and physically. She was freed of him when he was executed for betraying her father. Since then, she explains, she had become fearful of ever marrying again. Loki apologizes, and promises to never betray her like that, and promises to try to be more patient with her.

Thank you Superman. Thank you Henry Cavill.

Loving Superman/Clark Kent is part of my existence. It has been like this since I was a little girl. He was my first love. Yes, that platonic one all little girls or boys have when they are too young even to know what love means. But then we grow up. And growing up turns us into someone different sometimes. 

But from all the changes I’ve been through during all my life there is one thing that always remained the same: my love for Superman/CK. And after all these years, the way I admire this character has become so inspiring and special that I often stop and ask myself: “Why do I still love a comic book character so much?”

First and foremost Superman is not just a comic book character. Period. He is the personification of kindness, love, respect, friendship, loyalty, forgiveness, sacrifice and believe it or not, humanity. And it’s impossible not to relate to that. We all do at some point of our lives. 

That’s why I love so much this portrayal of the character we have right now, although a lot of criticism is always directed to it. Henry Cavill’s Superman has such a pure and kind heart. It’s the most beautiful and inspiring thing I have ever seen in a superhero movie, because no matter what happens, he’s just a guy trying to do the right thing. And at the end of the day, that’s exactly what we, as human beings, should be trying too.

Besides that, in a world full of hate, where people are constantly judged by their looks, social class, political views, color of their skin, sexual orientation, religion and so on and so forth, we need something to believe in, something to make us feel better after a horrible day at work or some kind of personal drama we may be facing in our lives. 

That’s exactly what Superman did to me this year. He made me feel good, in peace, happy, relieved when I needed the most. So if I’ve already loved that version of him I was able to discover when I was little, I love him even more now when he has made my journey through this hellish year much more bearable.

It was him who helped me when no other person could. Either just by reading some articles here on Tumblr and all over the Internet about how important he is to a lot of people (the same way he is to me), or just by watching “Man of Steel” and “Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice” and realizing again how awesome these movies are. 

One more thing, Henry Cavill’s Superman inspired me to write again, to put my thoughts and feelings on paper, something that was hidden inside of me for a long time. It made me feel so good. All of my thoughts about him are here, I’ve shared with you guys during all this year and it was awesome. The others were just to myself, but it was such a relief to be able to write again, something I’ve always loved but I stopped doing it for various reasons.

That’s why Superman is not just a comic book character, he matters to a lot of people. He’s able to help people in a lot of different ways. We are living in a world full of darkness nowadays, there are people facing very difficult problems and dramas in their lives and to have something which can be their source of hope and strenght is a blessing. And that’s what Superman means to me.

So thank you Henry Cavill for giving me so much joy and love with your version of this superhero who is so dear to my heart. Thank you guys here on Tumblr who love this character just like I do and also made my 2016 a better year. And finally thank you Superman for being such an inspiration to me since day one.

Well, shit gets worse.



So let’s ignore the stupid villain and the mission Sasuke had this entire time, I know they are important plot points but I’m over Sharingans entirely now, and I doubt this plot has the potential to be ‘hype’. I should care, but I don’t. I mean if the fact this motherfucker has Sharingan’s IN HIS HEAD doesn’t dissuade you, then good on you, I’m so fucking sick of them.  Anyway….

Let’s focus on that panel. That is the approach Naruto Uzumaki takes after seeing Sarada hurt, quite plainly and openly, before his eyes. Sasuke will not answer a single question she had for him, that she had come all that way to ask. Neglectful and uncaring, she rushes outside to break down in peace after Sasuke made it pretty clear that she wasn’t getting anything she desired to know. Now, Sasuke is dropping down to the point he can’t be redeemed as a father in the eyes of anyone sane. 

Why is Naruto not asking Sasuke to apologize for his attitude with her, or at least offer some kind of hint as to why she can’t be told anything? 

He instead chooses to approach with ‘Your father …is an admirable ninja, there’s no mistaking that.’ 

Sarada has little care for being a ninja herself, so this is entirely pointless. What Naruto witnessed wasn’t a debate between the two about what being an awesome ninja meant, it’s Sarada wanting explanations her mother won’t offer her, and wanting to see what kind of man her father was. 

Naruto is all about understanding people, yet he can’t understand what its like to feel rejected by someone else? This should have hit home for him a little more. Even if there are answers Sasuke can’t give her, Sasuke disregarded her feelings quite easily and had no intention of apologizing for what he’s done thus far, which includes nearly striking her. 

Out of every option he had by both knowing Sasuke personally and not knowing the answer to things that DO affect you, he went for an option I thought only Sakura could have gone with.

“Well, he isn’t anything like you hoped he’d be. He didn’t offer you any affection, and refused to answer anything you wanted to know, even a little. But trust me, he’s an awesome ninja.”


See that face? That’s the face of disappointment, of everything she hoped to get within that tower exploding in her face. All she has now is the Hokage beside her, who instead of apologizing on behalf of Sasuke or saying anything else that could have been reasonable and respectable, continues to hype up Sasuke’s skills as a ninja when that is the last thing that is on Sarada’s mind right now.

I don’t even like Naruto as a character anymore and I am outraged. Sarada is the closest in a position like his when he was just a kid, and that is all he had to give her? 

Reign - A review of the complete first Season (Part I)

Before getting started with my actual review of this crazy first season, I thought best to explain a bit about who I am and why I believe myself worthy to share my point of view. 

‘Cause yeah, let’s face it, I am a newbie in all things twitter and tumblr and any other crazy platforms I might still not know. I don’t have any followers and truly it is not my goal to get any.  I have seen the rise and fall of many, many TV Shows such as The Pretender, Roswell, Charmed, and ER.  I have spent most of my (way too short) teenage years defining the word “Fandom.”  I therefore consider myself (kind of) an “expert” in all things related to TV shows.  And yes, I do realize most of you don’t have a single idea who The Pretender is and were basically babies when I first rooted for a ship (at that time, we still called them “couples”, such an outdated word…), so if you don’t care for an oldie’s insight on a teenage TV show, this long rambling post isn’t for you.

Eliot Spencer is a fantastic character and he deserves all the happiness in the world yet he’s the only one of the five that doesn’t end up in a romantic relationship. For reasons of vicariously living out my huge crush on him, I almost wish he did so there would be more fanfics that don’t get in the way of Parker/Hardison. HOWEVER, I also think it may be the best thing ever.

Nathan, Sophie, Hardison, and Parker collectively had a lot of issues that made them unfit for relationships: alcoholism, childhood trauma, obsession, lack of social skills, and a whole host of other things that made them emotionally unavailable or dishonest. They had trouble functioning and accepting themselves on their own much less letting another person in. One of the best ways to show that they’ve grown past those issues is for them to end up in romantic relationships.

Eliot, on the other hand, is undeniably self-sufficient. He has many varied skills ranging from incapacitating anyone in 10 seconds flat to exotic cooking to music performance and he’s chill enough to pass as normal. He’s gone through all kinds of traumatic things, but he’s managed to cope remarkably well. Most importantly, he’s made peace with what he’s done, he accepts all of these things as part of him, and he doesn’t emotionally cut himself off from it.

What he was missing was lasting relationships, hope, and a purpose. His lifestyle almost required him to be alone. His military work ruined his earlier relationships because of split loyalties and secrets, but he believed he was doing good. After the military, I think he saw the crumbled relationships, lost hope, and decided to continue doing what he was good at regardless of what he was doing it for. Then Leverage came in. The team got him using his talents for the side of good again. It also gave him four people he could rely on, care for, and protect that he didn’t have to keep secrets from. They were the first people outside fellow military members that were in on everything and could keep up with him.

Leverage gave Eliot a beneficial purpose and a family he wouldn’t have to lose and he didn’t have to change himself to have it all. He didn’t get an end game romance, but he didn’t need one. He got four relationships that are just as deep and that’s enough to get him through a lifetime without being lonely again.

“Betty said,” Bruce said at last, interrupting the run of notes, “that your relationship with God has a lot to do with your relationship with your father.”

Steve thought about that. “She might have a point.”

Bruce smiled. “She usually does. Never knew what that meant, for her.” He looked at Steve, his eyes sad. “What does it mean for you?”

“I never knew my father,” Steve said, tired. “And I’ve never known God. But I envy those who do. And I live my life so that if I someday have to face either of them, I can hold my head up.”

“So he’ll be proud of you?” Bruce asked, not specifying which ‘he’ was meant.

Steve looked at him. “So I can be proud of myself. So I can be sure, no matter what any one else thinks, that I’m as good a man as I’m capable of being.” He managed a faint smile. “Because, in the end? I don’t think I’m going to be accountable to anyone else. Or if I am, what he thinks of me isn’t so important as the fact that I know I’ve done the best I can do.” Bruce didn’t say anything, and Steve looked away. “What about you?” he asked.

Bruce’s head dipped down. “I was always better off when both of them ignored my existence,” he said, his voice lacking bitterness or anger. There was only resignation there. “Because when either remembered, neither one of them has ever been particularly kind.”

The simple statement washed over Steve, taking the breath from his lungs, and Steve’s eyes closed. “I’m sorry.”

“Thank you,” Bruce said, his voice soft. “But I’ve made my peace with both of them.” There was a faint smile on his lips, but it didn’t reach his eyes. “I guess that’s why I let everyone drag me along, when it comes to Christmas. Tony and Clint and Thor, all of them, really. I let them drag me along, even though it’s not my favorite time of year, too many memories, too much baggage, because I refuse to give up. I guess I’m still looking for something.”

“What’s that?” he asked.

Bruce’s eyes closed, just for a second. When they opened again, they were clear and bright. “Hope. I gave up on it, a long time ago, and that was worse. That was horrible.” He leaned his head back. “So I keep trying. I keep looking. I fight with myself, at this time of year, but honesty?” he looked at Steve. “This year is a little easier. It’s easier to…” He paused, and the word came out as a breath, almost reverent. “Hope.”

From the Avengers Calendar: December

I went into the December chapter with the knowledge that I had to acknowledge Christmas, because it is a very big part of American life (seriously, you can’t avoid it even if you try) but that this group of people might not embrace the holiday fully.

Christmas can be a time of sadness for many people, because it’s hard to forget the people that you’ve lost, or to avoid focusing on the difficulties that you have with your family and friends.  For those who have lost family, or have fallen out of favor with their family, Christmas can be hard.

So when I went into this fic, I kind of wanted to provide a moment of comfort for those who feel isolated, alone, or sad at that time of year.  Because there is a sense of failure, if you can’t join into the forced holiday deathmarch of happiness.  It’s hard to shake that, that feeling of being alone and wrong.

And the two Avengers that I felt would be most honest in their feeling of being on the ‘outside’ were Steve and Bruce, who don’t get to interact as often as I’d like.  Both of them with bad memories, and both of them lost from the ones they love, Steve by time, Bruce out of a need to protect.

I don’t remember where I heard the words I ascribe to Betty here, but I felt right, giving them to her, because I think Bruce thinks about her quite a bit.  She has insights he doesn’t, and he respects that.  He’s not comfortable with his own insights, sometimes, but he trusts hers.

The discussion of a higher power, of hope and fear and love, was best suited to this moment, with these two characters.  It might not have been the usual holiday story, but it starts with loneliness and fear, and ends with cookies and something like a family.

It’s the best I could manage for them. 8)
