he's so nonchalant about it

How Wanna One Would Confess

A/N: I have my most important exam coming up and instead I’m sat writing for you, you’re welcome (jk). I got several requests for confessions, so I thought I’d just do all the members in a blurb – I hope that’s okay!



Jisung

Okay, so I feel like Jisung is the type who would straight up tell you that he likes you. Not in a neutral way, but one time when you were hanging out together. You’d be in a café together and he wouldn’t be able to stop smiling while looking at you, so you would ask him what he’s looking at. He would answer something like “you, because you’re cute” and after you thanked him for the compliment he would add “you know that I really like you, right?” and I swear to good he would seem so nonchalant about it, but on the inside his heart is beating faster than the speed of light until you tell him that you like him back.

Sungwoon would be a bit more shy about a confession, even though he’d like to be all smooth about it. I think he would be really shy about the person he liked and probably ramble a lot and shallow half his words because he’s just in a daze when being with you. If you look extra good one day or if you’re being extra sweet to him then he would get really flustered and you’d ask him: “Is everything alright?” And his answer would be something like: “Yes, no – I don’t know, you make me nervous.” And then you’d be like ‘oh’ because you understand what he means and then have to save him from being such a mess.

I don’t think Minhyun would be very nervous about a confession. Well, of course his pulse would be a bit higher than usual, but I don’t think he would really confess unless he was quite sure that you liked him back. If you’ve planned to do something together one day, he’ll show up at your place with a bouquet of flowers and tell you then. “Are these for me?” You’d ask and he would just answer with a simple: “Mhm, who else would I give flowers to?” And then he would probably do something really smooth like kiss your cheek or something and that would be his entire confession.

Seongwoo

Seongwoo would be a bit extra about the whole thing. If you’ve watched Produce 101 then you know about his playful, cocky image, which he would bring into a potential love life. The way he would confess would be to try to get you to confess first, by observing your reactions to any skinship he does and things he tells you. If he tells you that you look pretty one day and your reaction is to get shy, he’ll go in for the kill and say something like: “Are you that affected by compliments or is it just because they’re coming from me?” Followed up by cutting you off with: “It’s okay, I get like that if you call me handsome too.”

Daniel

Daniel’s confessions would be the sweetest and most cheesy things. I think he would probably confess without even realising it, it could be over text message or over the phone. You would kind of already know he likes you by the way he says he misses you or all the hearts he texts you, but the real confession would occur if you’re lying on the couch at your place and watching a movie. He’s the type to want to pull you on top of him for you to get comfy if you’re sleepy. He would then stroke your hair and then say: “I like this.” And pause for a while before saying: “I like us.”

Would 100% be super cheesy and sing his confession to you. Not really grand, like on a stage while you’re in the crowd, but more like sitting you down and taking his guitar to show you a new song he learned. After singing, he would say it made him think of you and smile like an idiot. This is where you should come in and tell him that you also thought of him while listening or saying that it made you very happy so you can live happily ever after. Okay, scratch that last part, just kiss him or something.

Jihoon

To many people Jihoon may seem like a type of tsundere, but I think he really shows it when he likes being with someone. He shows he likes someone by clinging onto them or talking to them a lot. He’ll know himself how obvious his crush on you is and just assume he doesn’t have to say it straight to you. His friends would probably comment on how he likes you so much and ask you why you aren’t together yet, but you would just answer that it hasn’t really been brought up yet. After he finds out about this conversation, he’ll go straight to you and say: “If I knew I just had to ask if you wanted to go out with me to get to date you then I would have done it ages ago.” And boom, you’re dating.

Okay, but, if you saw the show then you know he’s such an awkward little bean. He opens up so well after a while though, so how comfortable he is depends on how well he knows you. I imagine him being friends with the person he’s confession to first and trying to leave subtle hints here and there. The thing is, they would be too subtle to notice, it would be things like just brushing his hand against yours carefully or giving you a compliment about your hair or outfit or anything here and there. After a while he might be frustrated and just ask to talk to you alone. Then he would straight up utter the words: “I like you” just like that and wait for your reaction. If you’re anything like him, the answer might just be: I like you too.” And YAY, feelings conveyed.

Jinyoung

This boy would be so nervous to confess your feelings to you, mostly because he would be worried about your reaction to it. He would probably have to admire you from afar (in a non-creepy way, just some looks and eye-contact at times) before speaking to you more and more and getting to know you. When he actually gets to telling you that he likes you, it would go something like: “Uhm, I was just wondering if yiu, maybe, would like, possibly, want to go out with me? Only if you want to of course!” And he’d be all shy and scratch the back of his head while doing so.

Daehwi

Would 100% absolutely and totally confess by accident. You could be out walking together, probably after buying some food or just walk to get some air or something. You would say something really dumb, either it being a bad pun or a silly question and he’d just go: “Oh my god why do I like you again?” And you’re like: “Uhm, you never said you liked me.” And then he’s like oh shit this didn’t go as planned, but he’d try to get himself back awkwardly and cover it up and pretend he totally meant to do it. Lastly, he would just hope for the best and that you like him back.

Guanlin

I feel like Guanlin’s confession would be the most normal one. He would be a bit quiet and lowkey about liking you, but at the same time he’d smile and laugh at a lot of the things you say and just feel really at ease being around you. When he’s comfortable enough he would ask you if you liked him, rather than telling you he liked you. That would mostly be because it’s less nerve-wracking. If you said yes, he would smile really brightly and go: “Good, cause I also like you a lot.”

Exhibit A: 

I don’t know about you guys….but the technique makes me fucking hop with joy man. I want to run a marathon with the adrenaline rush I get by watching him twirl this contraption. 

Exhibit B:

IF YOU SAY THAT THIS DOESN’T TURN YOU ON, YOU’RE A LYING SON OF A BITCH. SOMETHING ABOUT THIS GIF JUST GETS ME GOING HE IS IN A TRANCE  AND HE’S JUST SO NONCHALANT ABOUT THE WAY HE’S TWIRLING IT FUSKDCK FUCK FUCK ME 

Exhibit C:

I want that lightsaber to be lodged so far up my ass that it comes out of my nostrils. Goodnight.

as expected of Brook… not only am i super amazed that he managed to get a rubbing of ALL the poneglyphs in Big Mom’s possession and hid it in his skull, but the fact that he was so nonchalant about getting away with it all is seriously beyond me…

Brook has truly been nothing but outstanding so far in this arc.

and if there’s one thing to take away from this, it’s that when any of the straw hats say they’re gonna get things done, you’d best believe they’d get it fucking DONE!!

Plot: Gotta keep, one jump ahead of the explosion…

Warnings: a building is on fire? (the building’s condition in this imagine is most likely, guaranteed not accurate but I am going to keep it that way because I don’t know science and I’m going to use movie aka Hollywood logic.)

Author’s Note: Alright, so this for the song challenge for the lovely month of May. I hope you enjoy the cheesiness that lies ahead…

Also, the reader does not work at the real Oscorp. It’s just a small office I made up somewhere past Central Park. Let me live, I know it’s cheesy. And probably inaccurate, I’ve only been to New York once.

Fic Masterlist


Cadewyn is amazed by the beauty of Terrasen. The towering mountains, crystal clear lakes, and enormous, flourishing pine trees that surround the capital city of Orynth is completely breathtaking. As he follows the Captain of the Guard, Aedion, around the palace grounds, he is struck by how different it is from the Night Court.

In Velaris, his parents do not own a large castle, or a huge plot of land. There is Aunt Elain’s garden, but Cade is sure she would love to see the one in Terrasen thrice the size of her own. Only in the last few years has Cade been able to venture down to the Court of Nightmares, and the difference between the two capitals is practically palpable.

Terrasen is fresh, new, and clean, with smiles passed between everyone and a calm atmosphere. The palace, which Cade has learned was built only in the last couple decades, is pristine, though old fashioned, and though it is enormous, has an incredibly homey feel to it. Hewn City is dark, extravagant, and the tension that is constantly floating in the air gives him a headache whenever he visits. The architecture is old and, though it is kept very clean, feels dirty.  

Quickly, and without much effort, Cade finds himself at ease in the company of the captain as they stroll along the edge of the forest and make polite conversation. Aedion only looks a few years older than Cade, but the boy knows better. The captain may not have pointed ears or elongated teeth, but Cade can recognize the smell of fae blood in him.

They have been walking a few minutes in silence, just admiring their surroundings, when Cade finally works up the courage to ask. “So, how old are you?” He wonders, trying to be nonchalant about it so as not to seem rude.

Kageyama Tobio

- he would open his locker, quickly go to the changing rooms and change into the volleyball uniform

- (somebody’s excited)

- he wouldn’t even notice the smell until he’s changed and walking into the gym

- so he talks to Hinata about a new thing for the new quick and Hinata be like 

- ”why are you wearing perfume???

- and kags doesn’t really get what he’s talking about

- probably bc he’s used to what you smell like

- and Hinata would tell him “Why do you have _____’s perfume on you???”

- and kags would smell his uniform and his cheeks would turn red

- “someone ‘s guilty of something” Tsuki no

 - so kags goes on a yelling spree with a red face with Tsuki tryna keep his laughter down bc dadchi will get mad

 

 Sugawara Koushi

 - once he opens his locker he would be kinda confused bc why did it smell like you

 - he would notice your perfume and he’d smile

 - his cheeks would turn slightly pink as he chuckles and wears the uniform

 - Goes to the gym with a dorky smile on his face and Daichi’s ???

 - and daichi would ask why he was smiling

 - “Oh ya know, nothing…” He would say but he literally is so proud to have your scent on

 - the rest of the team would be :o bc suga-san hasn’t hit anyone yet

 - and Asahi asks why he was so happy today and he’d give the same reply

 - but he would small the perfume and he’d smile at his friend

 - “Good for you Sugawara.”

 - cue the hard slap on the back from sugamama


 Oikawa Tooru

 - he’d be all about it ngl

- he would wear his uniform with a smirk on his face

 - asks everyone if they like the smell of his perfume

 - everyone is v v v confused

 - “Why do you want to know Oikawa-san” oh poor shallot head

 - Oikawa would sling an arm around his shoulder and look to the gym’s ceiling

 - “Because it’s my beautiful girlfriend, _______’s perfume, smells divine, doesn’t it?”

- Everyone’s kinda just ‘ugh here he goes again’

 - and they would just ignore him as he talks about how great you are

 - then iwaizumi hears him boasting and throws a volleyball at him

 - “Stop talking and start warming up crappykawa!”


 Akaashi Keiji

 - he would be pretty lowkey happy about it

 - so when he walks into the gym Bokuto sniffs him like a dog

 - “this isn’t your perfume Akaashi!”

 - so Akaashi avoids his eyes with a blush and changes the subject

 - in which bokuto gladly indulges in

 - then soon everyone from the team is whispering about why akaashi smells better than usual 

- so Bokuto remembers again and bugs him about it 

- “Akaashi the smell you’re wearing is familiar, but it isn’t yours??? Who’s is it???”

 - Akaashi tried to change the subject again but bokuto tells him not to

 - Keiji would mutter that it was yours and the captain’s eyes widen

 -“akaashi is marked!”

 

 Miya Osamu

 -  He would be nonchalant about it

 - secretly loves it though

 - so he would wear his uniform and walk into the gym with a :I face (like usual)

 - and atsumu would smirk and nudge him

 - “someone’s spending too much time with _____.”

 - he’d just roll his eyes at the twin and sigh as he does his stretching

 - he would be distracted throughout practice

 - he would remember the same scent on your clothes, which lead to thinking about your body, then your face, then your smile

 - so after drinking his water he would show off a small smile as he looks at the floor

 - and the whole team gasps

 

 Kozume Kenma

 - he would think “oh _____ sprayed her perfume…”

 - he would be blushing the entire time as he walks into the gym

 - tries to stand with his Gameboy in the corner of the gym where there aren’t any people 

- Kuroo walks over to him and smells the perfume 

- “I love your perfume today. Where’d you get it?” 

- Kenma would glance at Kuroo and blush even harder 

- “Kenma-san are you okay- you smell good! Is that yours?” –tall Russian dude 

- he would ignore him and concentrate on his game 

- “Oh! So it isn’t yours? I wonder who’s it could be…” Kuroo would be smirking 

- kenma walks out the gym “nope.”

Pairing: Jay Park/You, Simon D/You

Word Count: 3,114

Notes: I feel productive. 

Weird.

Life is weird.

Everything is weird.

It was the only word you could think of. How else could you describe the mess that had taken form around you? You had slept with Jay Park - your boss of all people - and now you were in the AOMG break room watching coffee brew like it was more interesting than the Dos Equis guy. For every drip of the dark liquid and every errant thought about Jay, a piece of what little mental stability you had left wavered. He had been on your mind consistently since you had given him every inch you had to offer.

It was unnerving and almost as annoying as the group that sat at the tables behind you gossiping. They had all showed up while you watched your coffee brew and had proceeded to prattle on and on about mindless drivel that didn’t matter. It was beyond you how people could care so much about their coworkers’ personal lives. You weren’t really listening, until two certain names caught your attention.

“Kiseok and Soori are official now.” With the simple gossip, your heart clenched and you entire body stilled. Despite having brushed them off earlier, you were now listening raptly.

“Yeah, she confirmed it with a couples picture on Instagram”, a staffer scoffed with a hint of disgust. Apparently you weren’t the only one with less than fuzzy feelings for Norma Bates. You assumed it was the fruity smell. Enjoying the company of someone who smelled like strawberries and acted like the world was rainbows and sunshine all the time would have to be difficult for anyone.

“It was a cute photo of them though,” someone else chimed in. You immediately didn’t like whoever it was. They would be lucky if they made it out of the break room not drenched in piping hot coffee.

19th - 20th of May ~ Your presence softens my pain

i have a question about wilford, @markiplier.

i’m going to base this off of a theory that @markired came up with actually. kylo pointed out that wilford is capable of breaking the fourth wall as you’ve shown us in Markiplier TV.

we also know that wilford acts completely on impulse in all of his decisions which includes murder, but we also know that he doesn’t seem to regret those decisions.

is it possible that bc of the fact that wilford can break the fourth wall, he realizes that this is all “fake” and just a skit, so he chooses to do whatever he wants? this would explain so much about his nonchalance and flippancy when dealing with murder and other…negative(?) things!!!

So I did use Google Translate for the Swedish so if it’s wrong, someone please correct me. Also thank you for this request because I do love the Skarsgård family, especially Bill.

Not my Gif.


You had begun to work on Vikings recently after your brother had told you that the show was looking for a young woman who fit your description. You had jumped at the chance to act on the show - acting was in your blood. And so far, it was a dream come true. You got to work on an amazing set with the most wonderful people and you had made so many friends. You spent a lot of your downtime with Alex, Marco, Jordan and Sophie and you had grown close to Alex more so than the others. From going out to dinner to playing video games in his loungeroom, it felt like you were always with each other. This had led you to develop a small crush on Alex, but honestly, who wouldn’t. He was amazing. There were only 2 problems. One - your brothers were all overprotective and Gustaf wouldn’t allow it and Two - Alex actually feeling the same about you.

“Y/N? Are you even listening to me?” Alex asked you for the second time. You snapped out of your daydreaming and turned to him.

“Sorry. What’s up?”

“I wanted to see if you were coming out with the group tonight?” 

You nodded and smiled at him when a grin formed on his face. “Sure. Why not?”

“Good! We’re heading to The Pig’s Head at 7.” He informed you excitedly. You weren’t sure what had him so bubbly but little did you know it was just Alex being happy to spend time with you. Alex began to chat animatedly as he normally did but he was cut off by a voice behind you.

“Lillasyster, vad gör du? Varför pratar du med honom?” Little sister, what are you doing? Why are you talking to him? Gustaf asked overly curious and you could see he was trying to intimidate Alex as you spoke. His eyes bore into the Dane across from you to the point that he shifted in his seat.

“Ingenting bror. Nothing brother. I was just talking to Alex. Everything’s fine and I can talk to who I want.”  You spoke calmly tilting your head back to look at your brother.

“Jag tycker inte om det.” I don’t like it. Gustaf hissed.

“Jag bryr mig inte.” I don’t care. You snapped back at him. You knew that Alex was able to understand most of what you were saying since your two languages were so similar but you didn’t care. Your brother turned away and headed towards his trailer while you faced back around to Alex, who was sitting silently.

“So, what was that about.” He asked trying to act nonchalant.

“My brother is just overprotective, just like the rest of my family. I’m not even the youngest but since there are only two girls, we’re practically smothered. He’ll get over it.” You replied rolling your eyes at the thought of Bill or Alex finding out about all the time you spent with the boy across from you. You watched as Alex’s face began to redden slightly and he began to fiddle, trying to avoid eye contact. “Hey, what’s wrong?”

“It’s just that, well, his concerns aren’t entirely misplaced.” He said cryptically. Your eyebrows furrowed in confusion.

“What?”

“What I’m trying to say is that Gustaf has a reason to act like that because, uh, you know,” he began to stutter, “I do kinda like you.” He finally blurted out.

“What?” You repeated again. “You like me? Really?”

Alex looked up at you with a shy smile and twiddled his thumbs. “I think I have since our first scene together. I couldn’t help but want to be around you and spend everyday with you.” You were still staring at him with a blank face and a parted mouth and he took that as a bad sign. “Oh God I’m sorry! I shouldn’t have said that, shit.”

You quickly interrupted his cursing. “No no no. Alex it’s fine! I like you too.” You felt the flush rising up your neck as he said the words but the smile that grew so wide on Alex’s face relaxed any fear you had.

“Really?” He asked, a childlike look of wonder on his face. 

“Yeah, for a while now. Uh, so what do we do now?”

“Would you maybe want to go on a date with me?” He asked. You smiled at him and nodded. 

“I’d love to Alex.  But first, we have to tell my brothers. You need to be vetted.” You said with a smirk and watched as his expression turned into one of terror.

“Fine,” he snapped back. “Do you want to go to A&E?”

“No.” Her head lulled to the side, eyes closed.

“Right,” he began again, sternly. “Look, you either get up and get in bed or we go to hospital if you can’t move. Your call.”

“Mate,” Niall interrupted. “If she can’t move to the bed, then she’s not gonna be able to get to the hospital, is she?”

So I’d very much like to start of by saying that what I’ve just written isn’t quite what you’ve asked for. It’s a little more angsty than cute and fluffy. But…BUT please stay tuned for part 2!
Thank you @larkistin​, @minidodds​ & @grassysvu67​ for your input!


Join me for drinks with the squad!

It had been a simple enough request on Rafael’s part but had lead to some unforeseen consequences and revelations.

The conversation had started innocuously enough, the squad discussed the case that Rafael had just won. You beamed at him, proud of your amazing attorney. Soon the conversation progressed to a more personal nature.

“What was that guy’s name, Barba? The one you were dating when you started working with us?” Olivia asked. “Oh yeah, Steve…”

You didn’t catch the end of the end if Olivia’s sentence because you were still trying to process her words.

Rafael had stiffened up beside you, his hand no longer resting on your knee.

You didn’t understand. Your boyfriend had dated  a man named Steve. This was certainly news to you! Racking your brain, you thought back to the conversations you had had about exes. Surely you’d have remembered Rafael mentioning that he had dated men.

Was he gay? you asked yourself. But if he was, why was he dating you? Your only conclusion was that he was bisexual, but why did everyone at the table seem so nonchalant about this piece of information. Did they all know?

Of course they knew! They must! You couldn’t be the only one shocked enough to bat an eyelid. Or were you just that behind with your thinking? You knew that this shouldn’t be bothering you so much, but it was.

Boyf Riends Mermaid AU: Just Two Mates

“So…where are you going to stay now?” Michael looked up from his slushie to see Jeremy’s worried face.

“I don’t know, probably the beach or something.”

“What about your dealer?”

“He can only find me if I’m in the water, not the beach.”

“I know but you’re like permeantely human now, you need a more permanent place to stay.”

“And where would I go?”

“Well, maybe you could stay with me.”

“Okay,” Michael went back to drinking his slushie as Jeremy stared.

‘How is he so nonchalant about this? I mean he’s just become human forever and now we’re going to live together…’

“O…oh, but we’re going to need to be careful with my dad and school…”

“You don’t need to worry so much Jeremy. Now we can do everything together.”

“Well not everything…”

“No I mean everything. We are mates.” This made Jeremy spit out his drink in surprise.

“What?” The rest of the Burger King directed their attention at him wondering what he was yelling about.

“Don’t be so loud Jeremy, people are staring.” With a embarrassed grin Jeremy sunk down slightly in his chair.

“What do you mean, mates?”

“We are compatible with each other in more ways than one and the day I met you on land at the dock I imprinted on you.”

“What?! Why didn’t you tell me?”

“I thought you knew, can’t you smell i…oh…your senses aren’t as enhanced as mine.”

“Can you stop the mates thing?”

“Are you saying you don’t like me?”

“I like you! A lot! But the whole mates thing is forever and-and, I’m just really confused.”

“Dude I’m sorry, but when mermaids mate it’s for life. No take backsies.”

“It’s okay, I mean the whole mate thing doesn’t really do anything anyway. Right?”

“Only if you break my heart.”

“What happens then?”

“I’d die.” An awkward silence filled the table as Jeremy tried understanding.

“You’re joking, right?”

“No, I’m very serious. If a mermaid’s heart is broken they die and dissolve into seafoam.” Jeremy’s eyes widened as Michael took another sip.

“But I don’t have to worry about that. You’d never do something like that to me.”

“Why?”

Tai lifted his head slowly to see Qrow dangerously close to him. Tai threw his head and back against the wall, only to find that he had no extra space to spare. He was scared of this man. Qrow frightened him. Something was unhinged in him…something that Summer Rose had kept closed off for years. No…something that only her death could set free.

“Why are you sorry?” Qrow asked once more, eyes continuing their piercing gaze. He spoke in such a raspy, matter-of-fact manner that it threw Tai off. He questioned his apologies as one would ask for a glass of water. When Qrow finally did speak, he thought it would be consumed with emotion and grief for Summer. Instead, he seemed almost barren of any feelings he once held. ‘Though,’ he thought, ‘that could change.’

Tai shook his head frantically, unsure of how to answer him.

“I keep hearing that phrase.” Qrow continued, sounding almost confused. “ ‘I’m sorry’. Why? What are you sorry for?”

Tai squirmed under his gaze, unsettled by his question. ‘What, are you stupid? Why wouldn’t we be sorry for your loss? For what happened?’. In an attempt to hide from Qrow’s intense eyes, he found an item he wasn’t sure still existed in this world.

On a coat rack right next to Qrow’s bed, hung a tattered, white cloak stained with blood.  He couldn’t control the tears once he realized how Qrow had most likely spent his nights staring at his partners- his wife’s signature cloak.
A subtle, eerie smile graced Qrow’s lips, bringing Tai’s vision back to stare into Qrow’s. “That? You’re sorry for that?”

Why was he being so nonchalant about it? That was Summer’s cloak for Gods’ sake! Did he feel nothing?

“Taiyang, let me ask you something. Does it ever cross your mind that you’re not supposed to have happiness?”

Jarred by the usage of his name, Tai scrambled. What kind of question was that? All he could do was stare back at Qrow, bewildered by such a question. Qrow picked up where he left off, seeming to be satisfied with silence as his answer.

“It’s crossed mine. I am the human avatar for disaster. My life has been on a path of mayhem and destruction. Until…” His eyes searched for a moment, looking over his shoulder to the cloak. Qrow’s mouth quivered into a grimace, unable to finish his thought aloud. Turning his head back to Tai, Qrow shook his head slightly. “That…that was stepping over my bounds.”
