literally they begin with evie saving his life, like this ship began with girl saves boy and rick admits that’s the entire reason he goes on the adventure at all
lots of longing gazes
bANTER BANTER BANTER BANTER THE ONLY THING THAT SCARES ME MR O’CONNELL ARE YOUR MANNERS
the formal way they address each other, “mr o’connell” “evelyn”
TEAMWORK!!!!! ships that work together as a team are legit wonderful
basically every little thing evie does that wouldn’t be considered “becoming”
for a woman at that time, rick is very into. racing a camel? rick is
down. describe mummification with gross specifics? rick is very into it.
and then he steals nice tools for her which is basically the most romantic thing you could give evelyn carnahan as a present
“i… am a librarian” rick is aroused
when he helps her off the ground and very gently checks to make sure she
isnt hurt and basically casually holds her like wtf kind of romantic
bullshit is this
rick loses his shit any time evie might get hurt
like they have to hOLD HIM BACK when she goes with imhotep
“if they make me a mummy you’re the first one i’m coming after”
THEY ALWAYS HOLD HANDS WHEN RUNNING AWAY FROM DANGER
their kiss has a smiley NOSE RUB like kill me i hate them
they cuddle on a fucking camel
in the mummy returns:
A MARRIED SHIP THAT HAS BEEN TOGETHER FOR TEN YEARS, HAS A CHILD, AND IS STILL COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY FULL OF LOVE AND SUPPORT
like these assholes have been together for a decade and still make out constantly
WHEN THEY DEFEAT THE MUMMIES ON THE BUS LEGIT EVIE CROOKS HER DAMN FINGER AT HIM LIKE THEY ARE SO TURNED ON BY ALMOST DYING THAT IS BASICALLY THEIR KINK
they compromise and still work as a team so well!! they know when to do it evie’s way and when to do it rick’s way
like he hands her a gun and she nods and they basically practice how to fight at home right? they have to. they choreograph this shit.
they still banter and tease each other and it is full of so much fucking affection, gag me now
THEY JUST LIKE HOLD EACH OTHER A LOT ITS LOVELY
i dont support evie’s temporary death but also brendan fraser is literally the only man actually acting in that scene and it hurts my heart to even consider rick living without evie like that man thinks screaming AHHH at mummies will make a difference, how would he even function
just like a lot of hardcore risking their lives for each other
“do you want to know what heaven looks like?” “nope would rather make out on this blimp pls”
those are the only two mummy movies nothing else exists sorry
“Donald Trump is the literal opposite of Fred Rogers.”
I posted that earlier to my facebook feed, and I’ll be honest… When I did it I was kind of hoping it would encourage my friend who studied the life of Fred Rogers extensively to chime in because I knew he would have something pertinent to say. I was not wrong.
“Fred Rogers had such a huge problem with both Regan (who he programmed his show against) and Bush Jr. (The latter of which is much more complicated as they had a relationship that tested Fred’s boundaries.) that I can’t say “I can’t imagine how Fred would react” I know how Fred would react based on his interactions with the lesser evils of Reagan and Bush:
1. Had he not been retired, he would have themed weeks specifically against what Trump was putting in the news cycle. When Trump mocked a disabled reporter he’d have a week on disability and inclusion, when Trump promoted sexual assault, he’d program a week on respect and physical boundaries, when he bad mouthed women he’d have strong women on for a week. Fred would have travelled to do a week on Mexico and he would have moved in an Islamic neighbor.
I know this for a fact because these are the actions he took with Regan both with his “conflict weeks” and his traveling to Russia for remotes during the Cold War.
2. Fred would have attended events Trump invited him to but he would do so on his terms. He would participate in these events as well as long as it was on his terms. Because Fred would rather speak truth into those spaces then avoid them. But Fred would not accuse, he would just bear truth, refuse to be seen as supporting an evil and exit.
This is what he did to respond to the love the Bush family had for him and his work. He even offered prayer at one of their fundraisers: but it was a challenging prayer, one insisting that those in power and privilege use that for the least of these and especially children. After delivering that prayer Fred exited the building and sat outside like a kid after soccer practice waiting for his ride, spurning the thousands of dollars a plate dinner not even gladhanding with the bushes after.
When asked why he said he had reached the limit of what he could do before becoming an accuser. He wanted to challenge but never accuse as accusation was what Fred associated with the devil.
3. Fred would accept invitations to news programs when those programs allowed him to educate parents on countering the negative things coming from the president for their children. He knew those things affected children so he wanted to spread tools on helping them reject war, violence, hatred, oppression and racism.
He did this during any presidents term if it didn’t prevent him from meeting an obligation to children (he once turned down a spot on Nightline to talk about violence and children, one of his main causes, because he had a visit to an elementary school that same morning and knew he wouldn’t be mentally present for it if he was planning for Nightline in the afternoon.)
So we need to be like Fred. Getting in between children and any normalization of Trumps ways or words. Fred would have been diligently working on how to handle Trump in the land of make believe. Just like when King Friday started building nuclear bombs with money he promised to schools. Yeah Fred wasn’t subtle.” - Rev. Kevin Ireland
Listen, don’t wanna spoil anyone, but that moment Steve Trevor shout: “Diana, SHIELD!” was for some reason incredibly hot. Like good god he saw her people and how badass they were and he learnt and embraced it without a moments hesitation and he was ready to be a tool for her to kick ass and I think I fell in love with him right there
see I watched Avatar before I turned fourteen, so I never realized just how YOUNG fourteen is. Now I realize how fucked UP it is for a fourteen year old girl to be manipulating, threatening, and killing people.
Like she’s this brilliant little political strategist, she’s blackmailing and lying to people and starting coups and she’s powerful and talented…
But she’s also really, really fucked up, like, remember when you were fourteen?
You were just a kid, really, you just started high school, you had acne and you said painfully embarrassing things and watched anime.
What was Azula doing?
Well argue that she’s evil, but she wasn’t born like that.
She was made that way.
Unlike Zuko, her personality took their father’s bullshit the OPPOSITE way.
She became what daddy wanted and that made her want his approval more than anything and guess what that brought her?
Misery and mental instability and the inability to connect to others.
Now Zuko’s character development is the greatest development ever written.
But hers is damn close because they HIT THE SAME POINT but Zuko hit it and realized oh shit…my dad sucks.
And Azula hit it and thought I need to become better. I need to become perfect. I’m the problem not daddy.
But she could never be perfect, you see, the world doesn’t go according to your plans, and your father doesn’t love you and won’t, because he’s using you as a pawn and your BROTHER realized this before you.
Your brother decided he wouldn’t be your father’s tool anymore.
I think one of the greatest scenes was when Azula was mangling her own hair.
Like that scene where she imagines her mother…
Earlier she had said “my own mother thought I was a monster” and then looked solemn…but light heartedly brushing it off by saying “she was right of course.”
But that always seemed to me like a quick cover.
Like me when I say “so I’m complete scum…how’s your day?”
You laugh off the things that hurt most.
Maybe she thought her mother hated her because she acted like her father.
Maybe she grew to resent her mother because she loved Zuko more for his compassion and the fact that they were probably more alike than she and her father.
It’s kinda common, actually, for a parent to be more fond of the child that more closely resembles them, it’s an ego thing.
Maybe she subconsciously knew that her father was more like her, but that he doesn’t truly love ANYONE cuz he’s an ass, and she told herself that his approval was enough.
But she didn’t get AFFECTION from him like Zuko got from their mother.
So in that scene where she sees her mother being affectionate but mocking as she tells her she looks lovely, maybe that’s all of her insecurities come back to haunt her.
Avatar is amazing.
Azula being 14 and THIS FUCKED UP.
Like incredible, you will never hate a villain more than Ozai.
He fucked up nations and fucked up his own family, and by all rights Aang should’ve killed him, like you wanted that to happen…but then he doesn’t.
And you realize Aang is a damn monk and all of these people, even if they can’t be saved, deserve compassion.
Azula, I believe, was saved. Zuko had more compassion for her, as he always did, than she ever had for him, but in a way, it’s really not her fault.
And I Drove You Crazy (Bucky Barnes x Reader) One Shot ❤
A/N: hey y'all! This is most likely the most sinful thing I’ve ever written. I had to take some breaks while writing 😂 but this is dedicated to the lovely, super awesome @diving-down-to-wonderland for her birthday! (HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY HUN!) I hope you like it! ❤❤❤
- Delilah ❤
And I Drove You Crazy: Reader’s bike needs to be repaired asap, leading her to come across an insanely gorgeous mechanic whom she may or may not want to bang the second she lays eyes on him.
That type of leader that doesn’t take shit from anyone, except his members because he can’t fight them all at once.
Gets to know and observes people for a long time before recruiting them
He’s very stressed lately as they are a relatively new gang and there are a lot of fights going on with others for territories.
He met you in one these fights when you tried to make a distraction for your gang. You were about to go upstairs to the roof when you bumped into him
“Who the hell are you?” he asked immediately taking his gun out and pointing it at you.
“The same goes for you. You’re not from my gang so I’m here to kill you.”
“Oh really.” he asked smacking the gun from your hand and getting your hands behind your back. “You chose the wrong member. You see I’m the boss and now I can use you as a hostage.”
Looks like an angel and he actually is but in reality he’s the one you should be afraid of the most.
Nobody has seen him kill anybody because his methods are too cruel to do them in public.
Apparently has some beef with EXO’s Sehun. No one dares ask him but it has something to do with Sehun mistaking him for somebody.
By accident you got involved in a weapon dealing incident with him and he has been planing on killing you ever since. You were good at hiding your tracks but he saw you one day in the city and decided to get rid of you just there in the street but then realized that this fight would probably end up in a blood bath so instead he approached you in secret.
“You have to keep quite and come with me, if you don’t want to die here.” he said pressing his gun to your back.
Nobody knows why he’s in the gang as he was never invited.
first noticed Jisoo he thought he’s a spy or something (as he appeared out of nowhere) and was about to kill him when he promised that he’s good at at least something
And he was, to everyone’s surprise Jisoo’s aim and accuracy is the best out of all of them that’s why he prefers snipers.
He was told to get rid of you silently but you noticed him at the last second and he missed the shot causing a massive panic in the street. You used this opportunity to escape which made Jisoo even more angry. He hasn’t missed a shot in a long time and was determined to get you for that. But whenever he thought he got you cornered he somehow managed to miss and after a while he started to enjoy this little game of yours and soon realized that he doesn’t even want to kill you anymore.
Pro at hand to hand combat.
Trains all the members and teaches them different fighting techniques just in case.
His training routine is no joke and everyone is practically dead after it.
He met you before he joined the gang. You were jogging at the same park every morning. As it was really early and not a lot of people were out it became like a habit for him to greet you before he ran past. Eventually he wanted to engage in not only small talk and find out more about you and he started slowing down every single day till he was running at the same pace as you.
“Finally decided to slow down?” you asked.
“Only for you.” he winked.
Experimented a lot and finally came up with his own method to make drugs.
They were incredibly popular and so he quickly went up the ranks and now whenever there is deal going on it has to go through him first.
His first idea was to make poison but he somehow made drugs so nowadays he likes mixing different ingredients to try to create a new deadly weapon.
You had the audacity to attempt to take his throne as the king of drug dealing. You were stubborn and despite a lot of orders to report what you’re doing, you made your way around and stole half of his clients. He had enough and thought that the easiest way to fix this problem would be to get rid of you. But he had no idea you thought the same thing and somehow got his whole warehouse blown up. He caught you outside.
“You little shit, now you will have to take responsibility and I’m not letting you go any time soon.”
Likes money. A lot. And doesn’t like sharing. At all.
Easiest way for him to get rich was cards that’s why he started gambling at a really young age and now is a pro at it and is amazing at bluffing.
Enjoys tricking his own gang members and actually gets the most money out of them.
Played poker with him once. He lost. Now he wants his money back but you keep denying his challenge. He usually shows up at the most random places just to ask you. You got into your car and almost spilled your coffee when you noticed him sitting in the back seat.
“Wonwoo what the fuck?”
“Come on Y/N, let’s play.”
“Can you get over that already? Get the hell out of my car.”
“I guess I have to take some more drastic measures.” he said taking his gun out. “We’re going to my place.” [x]
Can smuggle anything in and out starting from stolen cars and ending with guns.
Doesn’t stay in the city for too long as he always has deals all around the country.
But when he comes back everyone is extremely happy to see him as he’s mostly chill and just being near him calms the others down.
He met you when he was away on a trip. You asked him for help when your car broke down and he fell in love at first sight. He stayed in the city for more than two months just to keep seeing you and you eventually became good friends when Seungcheol was done with him ignoring his orders and went to get him back himself. Well Mingyu obviously didn’t want to leave you but you didn’t want to go to another city either so he decided to be blunt.
“Y/N I don’t know how you feel about me but love you so I’m sorry but you have only two choices, you either go with me on your own free will or I take you by force.”
Somehow the ones who look the most innocent are the most dangerous in this gang. The same goes for Woozi. But he only uses violence when it’s necessary.
His specialty - torture. Favourite methods - teeth and fingernails pulling.
He charms his targets with his cute appearance and then gets every last bit of information they can muster.
You were unfortunate enough to be his target. You were screaming in pain for at least and hour, swearing that you don’t know anything when
came in and told him that they got the wrong person. He set his tools aside and stood in silence for a few minutes.
“Fuck!” he shouted shoving everything from the table. You just watched in horror not knowing what’s going to happen next. He turned around and untied you. He was ashamed of himself and couldn’t look you in the eyes.
“At least let me treat you your wounds.”
Is responsible for looking after the gang territories and making sure they don’t get taken over.
Usually doesn’t think twice when someone trespasses and just shoots them on the spot.
But still has incredibly good and friendly relationships with the residence of the areas he’s taking care of.
Trying to bypass through his territories was a big mistake. He noticed you’re not a local and decided to find out what you’re doing here.
“Hey you!” he called you over but you just looked at him and started running.
“What the heck?!” he thought as he started chasing you. You didn’t know the streets well and ended up in a dead end.
“I got you cornered. Now you’re going to tell me what you’re doing here or I will have to use violence.”
He’s great at annoying and pissing everybody off easily but it’s hard to catch him as he’s incredibly fast.
That’s why they send him when their is a need to infiltrate, spy or track anybody.
That doesn’t always work out as he likes to make either a grand entrance or exit and by doing that he attracts the attention of anybody nearby.
He was following you to get some information when he lost you. Suddenly he felt a knife press into his back.
“Why are you after me? Who hired you?”
He tried to take you by surprise by turning around and taking the knife out of your hands but he lost his balance and fell on top of you.
“What the hell do you think you’re doing?” you asked.
“Well this is quite the unfortunate situation you got yourself in.” he smirked. “If you promise not to make a scene our meeting won’t take long.”
*Jun shows up out of nowhere*
One of the first members who joined and everybody is thankful for that every single day because they wouldn’t have got where they are without him.
The missions he plans have a 99% chance of success.
Failure is not an option for him so he makes detailed strategies for all type of possible scenarios.
What a surprise You showed up at the wrong place at the wrong time and ruined all his perfect planing. The members haven’t seen him this pissed in a long time when he grabbed you and almost dragged you to one of the rooms. He roughly pushed you inside and you almost tripped on your own legs but his gentleman side couldn’t let a lady fall in front of him even when he was angry so he caught you midair and watched how confused you became by the second.
“Sit.” he said pulling you up and pointing you to the chair. “We have to talk.”
Knows anything and everything and the others should learn from him how to get verified information as fast as he gets.
Good with electronics that’s why he never goes anywhere without his trusted computer.
Despite some members protests he tends to sell the rarest info for big amounts of money to the other gangs.
He find out about you when he wanted to sell some info but the gang told him they already have what they need. Surprised that somebody besides him found it, he was determined to track you down. He was even more shocked when he saw that you’re a woman as there was not a lot of them in the industry.
“What? You think only men can do this type of work?”
“No but I find the women who do incredibly sexy.”
Despite being the youngest he knew about the mafia world the most.
His father had a gang and was killed during a deal so he asked
for help to someday avenge him.
Takes all advice given to him very seriously and tries his best to help.
Some trusted former members of his father gang were asked to take care of him so that’s why you followed him and also joined this gang. He found this annoying as he wanted to escape his past and always treated you harshly but when he noticed that you’re not around anymore he got kind of sad. But to his delight you came back after a few weeks after taking care of business.
“Missed me?” You smirked.
“Please don’t ever do that again.” he said, giving you a surprise hug.
A/N: I wonder if I should make a masterlist but I’m so lazyyy… Anyhow, feel free to request more scenarios, reactions etc. I keep up with a lot of groups, both male and female!! 😄
Sooooo, I really like your latest breakfast post. And the part with saeyoung walking in MC and Saeran kissing was funny. It gave me an idea. Can I request how the RFA+Saeran would react if another member walked in on them and Mc making out? Heehee~ thanks!
Haha, we laughed at this one. Hope you like these~
You brought Zen lunch during his rehearsals
It was just him in his dressing room since he was taking a break
When he saw you had brought him lunch, he kissed you on the lips as a thank you
Well…you two accidentally ended up kissing a lot more
Little did you know, Jaehee had thought to visit Zen as she had a short break from work
You two had left the door slightly open so she just walked in….and saw you both…and neither of you noticed
After a few minutes of stunned silence, she clears her throat awkwardly
You nearly fall on the floor trying to distance yourself from Zen
You can’t even look Jaehee in the eye
“Oh, er–enjoy your lunch, Zen. Bye!”
And you dash out the door
Meanwhile, Zen can’t stop blushing and stammering
He takes a huge bite out of his lunch to cover it up when Jaehee notices a smudged lipstick mark straying from his mouth
“Uh, you have something on your face…” she says with a small laugh
“Oh? Is it some sauce?”
It was your usual movie night at his house
The movie wasn’t at any interesting point, so Yoosung made his move
It started out as a few little pecks, and next thing you know he’s leaning over you and you both get lost in your own moment
Too bad the sound of someone munching on popcorn ruined the mood
You both pull a little away from each other to look at the source
Seven is casually sitting on the couch near the corner staring at the TV
“Didn’t know this movie was rated PG-13,” he grins at you two
Yoosung starts yelling at Seven from his place on the couch
But Yoosung is still hovering over you on the couch
It doesn’t make the situation any better for you, but he doesn’t seem fazed
You guys just start throwing pillows and whatever soft items you can find and pelting them at Seven
When he finally leaves the house, Yoosung just keeps going like nothing ever happened
You stop him and make a joke that Seven might still be around
You hear a chuckle from nearby
“Seven, what the heck!”
To this day, neither of you knew why or how he was in Yoosung’s house that evening
The latest RFA party had just ended
Jumin was given the task of rounding up the members for the afterparty
He can’t seem to find Jaehee or you anywhere
He’s passing by a storage closet and he hears….voices?
It’s a long shot, but he figures he’ll check and and opens the door
You two are sitting on the floor oddly calm and playing…Go Fish
“Uh…what are you two doing?”
“Playing Go Fish.” Jaehee deadpans holding up some cards
“In a storage closet?”
“The party got too loud,” you shrug before turning back to your cards
Jumin looks between you two as Jaehee takes a turn
He doesn’t even try to figure out what’s going on
He just shuts the door and leaves and just tells everyone you two will join them later….probably
The next RFA meeting was at his penthouse
You had come early to help set up and use the kitchen to bake some treats
You’re not exactly sure what happened
You were just rambling on a bit while plating things, and he was watching from the doorway
Next thing you know, he lifted you onto the counter and his lips were on yours
This was all very pleasant…except for the fact that Jumin had told the security guards to let the RFA members in whenever they arrived
Zen so happened to arrive a little early and went searching for you and him in the house
He lets out a yelp, “Jumin, you can’t just do that to her wherever you want!”
Jumin sighs and rolls his eyes, “This is my house, so…if you would excuse me”
He just goes back to kissing you like nothing ever happened
You just hear Zen’s complaints growing more distant until he retreats to another room to wait for the others
You find a lot of complaints in the chatroom later
You were just about to leave Saeyoung’s house for the day
You gave him a kiss goodbye…then one kiss led to another…and another
Then he was gently pressing you up against the door as things got heated
Saeran was coming home from some outing or another…and he really had to use the bathroom
After getting through his twin’s ridiculous security system, he goes to open the door
But it kept getting stuck
He tries a few more gentle tries before peering through the window on the side
When he sees you and Saeyoung making out against the door, he’s so done
He shoves it open, not caring that he’s shoving you and Saeyoung onto the wall
“My bladder is not going to wait for your lips to stop moving!”
You thought Saeyoung would be mortified….but no…he’s yelling at Saeran for ruining a moment
The twins start bickering at each other….one from the doorway and the other rushing towards the bathroom
You slide to the floor confused by the whole thing
Saeyoung had heard gardening might help Saeran…so he wanted to start one in the backyard
He even invited you and Yoosung to help
He didn’t account for the fact that Saeran had no interest in gardening
But he had a great interest in you and vice versa
So when you two were sent to fetch something from the shed, you take the advantage of kissing him, shutting the shed door behind you
As per usual, things heat up really quickly
Yoosung was sent to check on you both since it seemed to be taking so long
He opens the shed door and takes one glimpse at what you were doing
The sudden light makes you two break apart, shuffling away from each other
Yoosung doesn’t help your embarrassment since he’s covering his eyes
“No, no! Don’t mind me! Continue–er–whatever–um–”
He tries to grab some tools, but ends up tripping on everything while encouraging you two to continue kissing
After he falls over the seventh time, you and Saeran give up and walk out of the shed…you might also be trying to hide your laughter
Kiss My Ass - Stiles Stilinski/Mitch Rapp AU [Smut]
Character(s): Stiles Stilinski/Reader, Mitch Rapp/Reader, Scott McCall, Malia Tate, Lydia Martin, Liam Dunbar and some guy called Remington.
Word Count: 22, 488 and I’m not even sorry about it.
Notes: Well, here it is! The highly anticipated ‘Kiss My Ass’ fic to honour reaching 2000 followers alongside the competition, so I really hope you guys enjoy this because I worked on it for MONTHS. I need to thank some girls, because this would not have been done without them. Thank you to my wonderful babes @dumbass-stilinski and @rememberstilinski and @sincerelystiles and the @thelittlestkitsune and @stilinski–jpeg because without them this would not be complete, I owe them big time. Especially Steff, who proofread this entire fucking thing. Shout-out to her for not flying to England and stabbing my enough times to match the word count. So warnings, hmmm.. we have cheating, bleeding, injury, kidnapping, hostages, and major character death. on the side I know you’re all here for we’ve got oral (both receiving), many different positions, over-stimulation, squirting, first-times, masturbation, public sex, and teasing.
the war may be over, but it’s practically impossible for a demigod to go months without being thrown into some dangerous quest and with percy, annabeth, jason, etc. busy, all heads turn to nico di angelo
who of course attempts at getting out of it with his incredibly valid doctor note, except even that is not going to convince chiron this time
and as he’s packing to leave, will comes by the hades cabin and just stands in the doorway, not really doing anything besides letting his eyes rest on nico, who hasn’t noticed yet
maybe he’s drinking in nico—his figure, his movements, his little gestures, perhaps in fear the he won’t return from his mission.
when nico does notice, both of them perhaps look at each other a bit too long before will cracks a smile and nico reciprocates before busying himself with packing aka not letting will’s unbelievably blue eyes distract him from this
and then will approaches him and they just do a lot of cute banter that’s light and carefree as if nico might not die today
near the end of the packing, there’s a lot of silences and parting lips as if they want to say something to the other but choose against it and instead exchange glances that look so adoring but with these worried undertones
eventually, the dreaded moment finally comes after they walk back together
it’s kind of awkward and neither of them know why. maybe it’s cause will has these words that are in his throat that he’s desperate to confess but instead he just swallows them down. maybe it’s cause nico is more fidgety than normal and his lips keep getting dry
if it’s going to be the last time will sees him, then his heart insists on embracing the smaller boy and getting used to his figure and warmth all too fast. except he knows nico really hates physical contact, and he isn’t sure what they are exactly
little does he know that nico really wishes he could bury his face in will’s neck as well
but they both settle instead on a few closure comments with half-hearted smiles and pursed lips and nods before nico turns away with a sole backpack slung over his shoulder and his iron sword securely around his waist
and as nico’s figure fades, the panic settles like a fire and it sinks in low until will feels sick to his stomach at the thought of nico getting hurt or even worse-–dying.
but he waves that thought away because that is the last thing that he needs to dwell on, and instead he walks back to the infirmary, perhaps shaking a bit, and finds excuses to stay there
will takes on all the patients at every given opportunity, leaving his siblings worried but unable to do much about it because will is far too stubborn when he’s nervous
and when there’s nobody left to heal anymore, he takes out his medical tools and organizes them all and skims over each book on his shelf but learns nothing because there are thoughts that are racing across his mind
will he be okay? will he be strong enough? will he shadow travel himself too much? will he know how to deal with injuries if he’s alone?
and then he hates himself, because he might never see nico again and he didn’t have the guts to even tell him how he felt.
in the process, will falls asleep with his face pressed against his arm and an open medical book on the desk. (kayla and austin have to drag his half-conscious ass to the apollo cabin when they find him)
nico, on the other hand, is doing a bit better since he’s kind of distracted with trying to stay alive, even if he hadn’t seen much of anything for the past few days
he finds his target’s general location and when he gets sleepy, he decides to camp it out in the natural veil of a forest
nico ests his head on the back of a tree and closes his eyes, sighing.
the first image that comes to his mind is the sun kissed mop of blonde hair. it glimmers in the sunlight, and he isn’t sure if it’s a memory but the simple sight of it is comforting
eyes still closed, he can almost touch will’s tan skin and gaze into the never ending blueness of his eyes that darken like layers of the ocean. he can feel the presence of will, just the gentle and honest warmth and kindness that seems to circulate around
(it’s an easing thought to nico, especially in the dark of night with grumbling clouds above and the wetness of the dirt from an earlier rainfall)
just as he feels himself drift off to sleep to will’s voice, a simple creak makes his eyes snap open, and he’s immediately pulled from his thoughts
nico surveys the forest, grasping at his sword and holding his breath until the monster lunges from the trees and suddenly nico feels his entire body being crushed, the metallic taste of blood instantly trailing across his lips and all the air in his lungs being squeezed out of him
he can’t see well, but his grip on his sword is strong and with a jumble of movement, he’s able to roll free from the monster’s grip and stand on his own two feet, immediately going for a direct slash
everything is a blur to him but the groans of the dying creature are enough for him to confirm that he’s done his job before he falls unconscious
will, on the other hand, hasn’t heard a thing from nico in a week by now. he keeps going to chiron, asking him if anyone has heard of him and his heart sinks every time chiron denies it
he’s tried his hardest to keep his chin up and act normal, but eventually kayla and austin see his condition and force him to get some rest at the cabin
in the silence of the cabin, will realizes that rest is the last thing he needs because it makes his thoughts wander and so he sits up on the bed and takes in a deep breath before considering his situation
it’s been a week and he hasn’t given any notice that he’s okay.
will imagines a pretty horrible scene in his head of nico and that’s enough to jog memories of nico’s laughter and smile and he realizes how much he misses that
so he takes his pillow and he buries his head in that and lets his worry channel through his tears, and it isn’t long before his tears become more like sobs as he whispers things out to nico
please be okay. i can’t do this anymore. please let us know. please be alive. please be okay.
nico wakes up in a daze. the first thing he notices is that he’s alive and actually breathing despite the sore throbbing of pain that’s pulsing in his ribs.
there’s still the taste of blood in his mouth and his vision is a blur for a few seconds before it becomes a bit too hard to breath correctly with his face stuffed in dirt
so nico tries to sit up a few times and fails before finally balancing himself on trembling legs and looks at the creature long dead before him, the knash in it’s abdomen prominent
nico puts a hand over his ribs, wincing at the pain and realizes that a certain son of apollo will be furious at him when he returns
the thought of will makes his throat tighten and he wonders how long it’s been since he last notified the camp
he’s worried sick about how worried will might be, and he trudges to camp, fighting his urges to shadow travel and get it over with because he knows that if he even tries, he’ll be dead in seconds
but eventually, he goes through camp half blood’s entrance and a few faces turn to aid him but he waves them off, insisting that he’s fine.
of course, he can’t have them worrying now. he needs to get to will. he doesn’t care what happens to him afterwards.
the thought scares him, but that’s the last thing on nico’s mind at the moment.
so he limps along the path to the infirmary, getting more numb to the pain along the way and his heart swells when he see’s that blonde hair glistening in the distance
will is sitting down on the steps of the infirmary, and nico notices that his eyes are stubbornly focused on nothing in particular, and for will that means he’s thinking deeply about something
the simplicity of that is enough to make those familiar skeletal butterflies flutter across his stomach and there’s a sudden bundle of energy that bursts in his chest
he keeps watching the peacefulness of the sight and wants to, forever.
“hey” is the only thing that nico can choke out with a pathetically wide smile plastered across his face
will’s head shoots up to that voice that he’s been wanting to hear for such a long time now, and tears instantly prick at the corners of his eyes when he see’s nico, in all his torn and scratched up glory
those are the only thoughts that are in will’s head at the moment, and he doesn’t know what to do with the sudden ball of happiness and relief in himself besides running up to nico and collecting him instantly in his arms.
will lets his head fall into nico’s neck, and he could care less that the smaller boy can feel the wetness of his tears. nico only lets out a light laugh that hurts a bit and he tangles his fingers into will’s hair, breathing in his scent.
will’s holding him a bit too tight, his fingers grasping at the fabric of nico’s jacket and he doesn’t want to ease up—he’s too afraid that nico will disappear if he lets go.
they part, both unwillingly, but before nico can speak, will captures his lips in a kiss with his own. nico’s lips are slightly cold and chapped, but will couldn’t care less because they’re his
nico, on the other hand, offered no hesitation and instead melted into will’s arms further feeling his heart swell with a sense of deliverance.
he couldn’t think of anything besides how warm will’s lips were and the taste of coffee that came with them.
for a few moments, they stay that away until both boys part and realize that they’ve actually kissed—which is huge considering they were pining nerds who couldn’t even brush hands without turning into every shade of red
and of course, they proceed to turn every shade of red when the realization kicks in, but it fades away as quickly as it comes because nico’s alive.
…and then they kind of realize that nico has a pair of very possibly broken ribs and that he’s kind of slowly dying and now will is red, panicking and angry at him for every reason on the planet
nico couldn’t be happier
i am half asleep and this is such crap but i couldn’t stop myself after i started and it’s really long and im sorry and should i put this under a read more tag??
(also thank you for being a cute and reading my tags!!)
One more thought (but by no means the last) on the subject of John Watson
You know when you’re head over heels in love with someone and you find all of their little quirks endearing even though you pretend to be irritated by them, or even when you are irritated by then, it somehow stops mattering anyway? But then something goes wrong - you realise it’s never going to happen and that no matter how many other people you date (or even marry), you’re never going to stop feeling that way, and then all of those quirks suddenly become things that make you fly into a rage, whether or not they’re really deserved?
