Façade (Part 2)

Author’s Note: The original fic was written by the amazingly talented @littlemisssyreid (link to original below), and is one of the best fics I’ve ever read. It gives me so many feels. I asked her very nicely if I could write a part two, and she said yes. SO, here it is: my contribution to a second part of ‘Façade’

Original/Part One

Own it. Own it. Own it. Head high; Keep it cool. Saunter. Saunter. Breathe. Sway, sway, sway. And… there.

You exhaled deeply as you turned the corner of the hallway and heard the door close behind you. You were tingling all over from what you’d just done, almost shaking, as you pressed the button to the elevator. The door opened, and you stepped inside.

You had proven a point. And what a damned good point it was.

Come on… Shut the door…

You heard the steps of someone running towards you, and you punched the button again.

Come oooon…

The doors started closing and you allowed yourself to let out a breath of relief, but you choked on it as Bucky turned the corner and stopped the door at the last minute.

You immediately put on the bitchiest face you could muster and leant against the back wall of the elevator and crossed your arms, staring at the doors. He slipped in beside you just as the doors closed. You pretended you hadn’t noticed him, even though the two of you were the only two people in the lift.

“What the hell was that?!” he demanded, his eyes on yours and trying to catch his breath.

You shifted slightly so you were leaning even further against the back wall, sighing softly, before inspecting your nails in boredom.

“You can’t just kiss me like that and not say anything, Y/N!”

JUST A MATTER OF DECENCY

I’ve been silent up till now, but i think it’s the time for me, as AeF’s admin, to say something.
I started AeF scanlations team 4 years ago and with the help of VK’s ending, that was really disappointing, there was no one willing to help us with VK’s special chapters translations. It was hard for us to find a translator but we wanted to provide a service to the fandom no matter what, because despite everything we really enjoyed (and we still do) Vampire Knight’s story.

We have been here for a very long time, for 4 years as i said before, and despite we went through hard times sometimes, despite so many people left us, we are still here with a wonderful staff that we put together with so many difficulties.

I saw just yesterday that we have now two new scanlations team. Yeah, two. I’m fine with this, really.
Having more translations, having releases faster than ours is appreciated and i think it’s useful to the fandom. Even in the past there was two different teams working on Vampire Knight and all of us inside the fandom was fine with this.

There’s just one thing, or two, i’m not okay with.
But first there’s a point that i want to highlight. We have been always putting our effort in order to release a proper translation, and we need time to do it. Yeah, because in addiction to a translator we have a proofreader from japanese as well. Our proofreader checks every single word, every single sentence, just because she is well aware that VK is a delicate matter. For each proofreadings, in fact, she always provides us a “vocabulary”, where she explains her corrections, her choices, and what “thorny” kanjis mean. In addiction to this there’s the fact that each of us has his own real life. I really feel in the position to defend my own staff because i was hit where it hurts. Just because we seem slow this doesn’t mean that we really are. It’s just that we want to do a proper job. You can check yourself how accurate our translations are, just buy the first volume of Vampire Knight Memories and see that we have always released unbiased translations (because, you know, both the translator and the proofreader have nothing to do with the fandom). You will be able to do the same when the second volume will be released. And when i say this  i’m talking especially with these new groups.
Now, that being said, i really hope that there are people out there that will keep enjoying our translations because i can assure that we have always been working with our whole heart.
But now let’s talk about what really upset me.

What upsets me is the timing. Just when a controversial chapter comes out, just when the zeki is starting to become solid, just when there is a new war inside the fandom with new factions, we get two other scanlations group. Two, at the same time. Of course this is not a coincidence. I suspect that they are doing it for the controversy, not for the fandom and this is what annoy me the most. The fandom surely needs more translations but the ship war should not have an impact on them, this is what i truly believe.

Lastly, what bothered me is seeing the other team’s one online, on magafox for example. To me this is playing dirty . I’m not saying readers online are our property, but uploading every chapters online is what we’ve always been doing. It’s just a matter of decency towards our staff that was properly convenient for you all till now.

If you’ll threw the guantlet down i don’t have any intention to take up it. We will keep doing our job as usual with our head held high.

Headcanon - The “secret clothier” that always makes Feyres dresses? Rhysand. 

I just have this idea that he sneaks away and spends hours making these beautiful dresses for his mate and is just so happy when she wears them and how amazing she looks and it’s just his little secret but he loves doing it.

Tamlin and Lucien after receiving Feyre's letter.

Tamlin : Who does she think she is?
That girl has tangled with the wrong man!

Lucien : Darn right.

Tamlin : No one says “no” to Tamlin!
Dismissed! Rejected!
Publicly humiliated!
Why, it’s more than I can bear.

Lucien : More wine?

Tamlin : What for? Nothing helps.
I’m disgraced.


Gosh it disturbs me to see you, Tamlin
Looking so down in the dumps
Ev'ry guy here’d love to be you, Tamlin
Even when taking your lumps
There’s no man in court as admired as you
You’re ev'ryone’s favorite guy
Ev'ryone’s awed and inspired by you
And it’s not very hard to see why

No one’s slick as Tamlin
No one’s quick as Tamlin
No one’s neck’s as incredibly thick as Tamlins’s
For there’s no man in Prythian half as manly
Perfect, a pure paragon!
You can ask any Tom, dick or Stanley
And they’ll tell you whose team they prefer to be on

No one’s been like Tamlin
A High Lord like Tamlin


No one’s got a swell cleft in his chin like Tamlin

Tamlin : As a specimen, yes, I’m intimidating!

Lucien and the whole spring court :

My what a guy, that Tamlin!
Give five “hurrahs!” Give twelve “hip-hips!”

Tamlin is the best
And the rest is all drips

No one fights like Tamlin
Douses lights like Tamlin

In a wrestling match nobody bites like Tamlin!

Ianthe : For there’s no one as burly and brawny


Tamlin : As you see I’ve got biceps to spare

Lucien : Not a bit of him’s scraggly or scrawny

Tamlin : That’s right!
And ev'ry last inch of me’s covered with hair

Spring Court :

No one hits like Tamlin
Matches wits like Tamlin

Lucien : In a spitting match nobody spits like Tamlin

Tamlin : I’m especially good at expectorating!
Ptoooie!

Spring court : Ten points for Tamlin!

Tamlin : When I was a lad
I ate four dozen eggs
Ev'ry morning to help me get large
And now that I’m grown
I eat five dozen eggs
So I’m roughly the size of a barge!

Spring court : Oh, ahhh, wow!
My what a guy, that Tamlin!
No one scratches like Tamlin
Makes those claws like Tamlin

Lucien : Then goes tromping around wearing boots like Tamlin


Tamlin : I use wings in all of my decorating!

Spring Court : My what a guy, Tamlin!!

what upsets me about the show refusing to show intimacy between Malec is that it doesn’t have to be graphic at all, which I’m assuming is what they’re afraid of. It can be just Alec’s head on top of Magnus’s chest as they lay on sofa, fully clothed. It can be Alec absently rubbing circles on the back of Magnus’s hand. It can be Magnus hugging Alec from behind and them just standing there (maybe sneaking a finger or two under Alec’s shirt). Them playing with each other’s hair. Forehead kisses. Alec doing Magnus’s nails (or at least trying to). It can honestly be so touchingly intimate without them ripping each other’s clothes off or making out against a wall.

Anon said: i love ur fusion art!!!! if u have time/want to you should do a bakushima fusion

You’re not the only one that asked, but actually I already did draw it! It’s the first one I’ve drawn haha I felt like drawing it again tho, so here’s a doodled comic of the first time they fused accidentally ✌️

Dean and Cas meeting in high school, when Dean is shoved hard in a fight and Cas, walking past, grips his arm to steady him. “Urgh, don’t touch him, you’ll catch what he’s got!” yells the guy who doing the pushing. “You’ll start kissing boys too!”

Cas keeping his hold on that arm as he calmly draws back his fist, and punches the guy in the face. Left-handed, the nose doesn’t break, but it bleeds. The guy takes a look at the pair of their murderous faces, and leaves.

Cas keeping his hold on that arm as he pulls Dean into the bathrooms and cleans him up, slopping water messily over his neck and face. Dean, one eye swelling up beautifully, makes faces at Cas in the cracked bathroom mirror.

Cas keeping his hold on that arm as, day after day, month after month, they have each other’s backs. A fight every other week or so, some light shoving in the halls most days. “Shouldn’t have kissed that boy,” Dean says. “It started this mess.” Cas shakes his head. “There’s nothing wrong with kissing boys,” he says. 

Cas keeping his hold on that arm as Dean kisses himself another boy. He’s pretty sure he grips tight enough to leave a handprint. Dean doesn’t seem to mind, though. “Is there anything wrong with just kissing one boy?” he says, softly, lips still brushing against Cas’. “Like, forever?”

Cas keeping his hold on that arm as they walk out of school on graduation day, triumphant. When he moves into his room in college, Dean’s there to help him shift his stuff. And at the end of the year, Dean’s there again to move it all back out. “You guys are so cute,” says his roommate. “What’s your secret?” 

Dean looks over at Cas and raises his eyebrows.

Cas shrugs. “Hold tight,” he says. “And don’t let go.”
