he really is very attractive

simon one shot: late night conversations


I lay facing the wall. In front of me flashed a small alarm clock, the numbers 02:21 screaming out in red. Everything was dark, and kind of cold, and late nights always make me uncomfortable when I’m alone.

Next to me lay Simon, my best friend since I was about three years old. I had joined him last minute on the sidemen’s holiday to Vegas, and the short notice meant I had ended up sharing a hotel room - and a bed - with him. This wasn’t weird for us. I mean we’d been doing this since we were about three years old.

I turned over to face him, hoping with some magic he’d open his eyes and I wouldn’t be alone anymore. But he seemed pretty knocked out.

I carried on observing his facial features. He really was very attractive, I’ve always said this. I really don’t understand how he doesn’t have a girlfriend by now. I think it’s a confidence thing, mainly. But something clearly holds him back.

I’m too deep in thought to notice that Simon, in this time, has woken up, and is staring back at me.

‘You been staring at me all night (Y/N)?’

I jumped at the rough, fatigued sound of his voice among the darkness. Instantly I felt kind of reassured.

‘I was just thinking.’ I turned onto my back, focusing my attention on the eggshell white ceiling. I felt Simon shift next to me.

‘Oh yeah?’ He propped himself up onto his elbow to look at me. ‘About what?’

A smile spread across my face at the interest he took. That was one thing I loved about Simon. He always showed genuine interest, no matter what i was talking about. It’s like he always had a desire to know what was on my mind.

“Oh nothing,” I responded. “Just about how ugly you are.”

He pushed me playfully. 

“You’re a liar.” He retaliated.

“You’re delusional.”

“You like it.”

I smiled, turning to face him briefly.

“What makes you so confident Minter?”

He made direct eye contact for a couple of seconds.

“Well, you’re in my bed aren’t you?”

I laughed, ordering him to shut up and raising my hand to hit his face lightly. He caught my hand in mid air, however, and just held onto it. There was a silence for a minute. Comfortable, not awkward. The only sound audible was that of our thoughts racing. Mine repeatedly screaming of how appreciative I was to have somebody like Simon in my life.

“So at which point do you explain why we’re still awake, (Y/N)?”

His hand still grasped mine lightly. Hesitantly.

“I don’t actually know. I couldn’t sleep, but I didn’t think you would wake up.”

“Well it’s hard not to when you’re watching me sleep like a little weirdo,” He emphasised the little, digging at the height difference evident even whilst lying in a bed. “Nah but on a real. I know you have a lot of trouble sleeping. I was expecting it.”

“You remembered?” I asked, bravely lacing my fingers through his in a move that wasn’t rejected, but was instead reciprocated. 

“Of course. Remember when we were in college, and you used to make me stay up with you until you fell asleep because you were afraid to be the last one awake?” I smiled at his recount of the memories so distantly lived. “Even when we were young. When your Mum would be working nights, so you stayed round mine, and we would watch horror movies. And then you would crawl into my sleeping bag at midnight because you were scared.”

“I remember that,” I grinned to myself in the darkness. “And then your Mum would wake us up the next morning and call us the little married couple.”

“Not a lot has changed, really.” We both laughed, continuing to exchange childhood memories. Eventually my eyelids began to droop. I glanced over at the clock, noticing the room’s pigment seemed to have lightened slightly.

“Oh my gosh it’s quarter to five.”

“Yep, and we have a busy day tomorrow too.”

“Oh god. Okay, we’re sleeping now. We have to.” I looked up at Simon. 

“Yeah, we do. Come on.”

He lay on his back. My hand fell from his, however he soon replaced this loss by pulling me into him. I wrapped an arm around his torso, resting my face on his collarbone. The smell of his cologne engulfed me. It was homely, encouraging and reassuring in the darkness. He placed his arm around my shoulders. With his free arm he laced his hand through mine, his thumb rubbing slowly in circles over mine, instantly putting a smile of appreciation on my face.

“Good night Simon.”

“Good night (Y/N).”

“As a 49-year-old man, I am absolutely delighted and I have no qualms about it—excuse me, I’m just a piece of meat, thank you very much [laughs]. Part of me is very lucky to be having that kind of attention at all! And when I looked up Melbourne, he was actually a very attractive man and women really loved him. He aged very quickly toward the end, but about the time that Victoria met him, he was still quite an attractive man. He had an air of mystery about him. It’s certainly not the way I regard myself, by the way—I don’t think of myself the way that they describe me. But I am certainly not going to turn down any part on that account. If I’m offered a good part, I am going to bloody do it!

Absolute Boyfriend

“Oh, yeah? Well this isn’t a very funny gag gift! Do you have any idea how large this thing is?! It’s naked too! What am I going to do with it?!” Rei was on the phone with his older brother, staring at the large pastel pink, rose decorated box, containing a life sized, hyper realistic love doll. This was so embarrassing, and Rei was going to strangle his brother next time he saw him. Laughing, his older brother hung up the phone on Rei. 

With a loud, frustrated sigh, Rei put his phone in his pocket. This was insane, but he had to admit that the doll in the box was really attractive, and no doubt very expensive. He pushed the box further into his living room, before gently setting it down and opening it. The instructions came first, and he was just curious how thins thing worked. 

A kiss?

How was that supposed to turn it on? And, what would kissing this thing feel like? All of this was ridiculous, but he would feel very bad if he didn’t at least study it. These things were so expensive, and his brother’s feelings would be hurt if he didn’t even try it out. 

Leaning over the box, Rei gently pressed his lips against the love doll’s. They were so soft, and so life like. His skin was cold, though, like a dead man’s. 

…why did Ichirou buy his younger brother a male love doll? 


Earning Trust || Snily

“Shit,” Severus muttered under his breath as he tripped over practically nothing. He straightened up his books in his arms and huffed, continuing on his way to class.

Severus Snape was quite possibly the most awkward little shit on the planet. He was too tall for his own good, he was clumsy, and he wasn’t very attractive at all (not that he really tried). He had sallow skin, dark, greasy-looking hair, a big nose, crooked teeth, and was just all around poor to look at. To complete the sob story, he was abused both at home and in school, so he didn’t have much reason to look nice or do anything.

Ah, but there was one reason. The reason that trumped everything else and drove him to get out of bed in the morning.

Lily Evans.

Lily Evans was easily the most beautiful girl in the entire school of Hogwarts. She had been his best friend for nearly ten years now! They were wrapping up their sixth year and Severus was planning to reveal his feelings for her and ask her to the end-of-the-year dance. Severus had been madly in love with Lily since the moment he laid eyes on her. They clicked and they had been inseparable since the age of nine. He had inklings that she felt the same way towards him but it was still nerve-wracking to think that he would finally be coming out with it! What if he had been reading too much into her hugs or pecks on the cheeks? Her smiles? Oh, Merlin.

“H– Hey, Lily. It’s a nice day today,” Severus greeted a bit awkwardly as he approached Lily, looking above them at the beautiful, sunny sky. Not often you got sunny days around there. He knew Lily would always be outside when it was sunny! She was naturally pale and couldn’t tan for toffee, but she still liked to be out in the warm air soaking up the rays.

Severus was 17 years old and he figured he was more than capable of handling a serious relationship. After all, he never wanted he and Lily to break up, therefore he would have to be able to handle a real relationship! He was willing to make Lily the happiest woman on the planet! Well, that is if she actually returned his feelings and became his girlfriend.

“Um…” Well, there was no turning back now. He handed Lily the single rose he had managed to acquire for her. “I…” He pulled out his little card for her and he swallowed deeply. “I have something I’ve wanted to tell you for a really long time and I… I didn’t want to forget any of it.” He cleared his throat, his cheeks burning and his heart racing. “Lily, I’ve had the privilege of being your best friend for eight years now and they have easily been the best of my life. We share so much in common and nothing could ever separate us. Well, I hope so, anyway!” He laughed nervously, attempting to ease some of the tension. “Anyway… I… From the moment I met you, I knew you were special. You were special to me. There’s a reason why I followed every order you gave me when we were younger—and even now—and there’s a reason why I’ve always doted on you. You are the most important thing in the world to me and I can’t even begin to express that enough to you.”

Severus took a deep breath and closed his eyes for a moment, then plucked up some courage. Here we go. “I love you, Lily. I’m in love with you and I have been for quite some time now. I don’t think these feelings are ever going away and the time just felt right now. I would also like to ask you to the ball as my official, real date. I want to make you so happy, Lily. You deserve it.” Severus looked at her, breathing in and out deeply, his eyes a bit wide. God, why wasn’t she saying anything?! “I, um…” He faltered, clearing his throat. “You can say no if you want… It was stupid, I…” He shook his head, laughing dejectedly before she even gave him a bloody answer!
