hes not my favorite monster either

anonymous asked:

Do you want to share a list of fics that have made you cry? I'm in need of them. Thank you!

Oh anon, I love you. Thank you for giving me something to do. LOL! YES! I would LOVE to. I’m going to preface this with the fact that I cry VERY easily and for many reasons, but I don’t do well with SUPER heavy angsty fics (like the brain cancer fic) so, read this list with that in mind. And read the tags, just in case!

Fics That Made Me Cry

like a bastard on the burning sea by vashtaneradas

au; harry breaks louis, louis breaks everything.

the impossible now by stylinsoncity / @alienproof

A wish on Christmas Eve sends Louis to an alternate dimension where Harry is a member of One Direction.

Take My Breath Away by @realitybetterthanfiction

There is a prestigious school in the British Royal Navy classified as Premier Delta - or as it is known by its flyers, 1D. These select pilots are an elite set of Naval lieutenants who are trained in the skill of aggressive aerial combat. They are instruments of war, trained in times of peace. They are dogfighters, relentless and fearless in their mission to protect their beloved country. From their lofty vantage, they are always watching, waiting, and ready to lay it all on the line.

Lt. Harry Styles, call sign Sparrow, is a prodigy when it comes to flying. The owner of an unrivaled Naval pedigree, being a pilot was always written in the stars for Harry. With his trusty RIO, Lt. Niall Horan, Harry has made an unprecedented ascension in the ranks of the Naval aerial combat elite, and has been recruited to the esteemed Premier Delta flight school, carrying on his family’s legacy. What he finds there are unexpected friendships, perilous challenges, and something beyond what he ever thought possible. Because as his father had always told him, before the great Captain Styles went tragically missing in combat, you don’t fall in love with the sky, you fall in love with what keeps you on the ground.

No One Does It Better by nodibs

Harry’s an alcoholic and Louis is a bartender. The first time they meet isn’t the first time they’ve met.

Tug-of-War by @cherrystreet

Louis’ husband dies suddenly and he is left with nothing. Well, not really nothing. He has Harry. And a St. Bernard puppy named Link, whom his late husband left behind for him. Louis takes care of Link and Harry takes care of Louis. Everything is okay until suddenly, it isn’t.

AU. after eight years, louis finally has everything he’s wanted. except for harry.

finding you was so hard (but loving you is easy) by togetherwecouldbealright

An incredibly shameless vampire!AU filled with stupid jokes, endless dates, flappy bird, a bro man dude pal sleepover thing and there also might be some sex in strange places.

Also known as the one where everyone is a vampire, Louis is oblivious and somewhere along the way it becomes a bit too much like Twilight.

Then a string of thoughts make themselves clear in Louis’ head. First, Harry is a vampire. Second, Louis is a dumbass. Third, Louis is also unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him. Fourth, he’s pretty sure he just quoted the back of the Twilight book.

I’ll Crash Until You Notice Me by stylinsoncity / @alienproof

Louis sets off to Barbados to oversee the massive resort his family owns known as Sandy Hill. For years, he’s been looking for a change in the monotony of his life, seeking adventure and perhaps love too. What he doesn’t expect is the bright eyed boy who spills a milkshake on his shoes.

Cue the summer loving.

Your Name is Tattooed On My Heart by mcpofife

Louis is ready to find the love of his life, but first he has to stop falling for the punk rocker next door.

210 Days by @cherrystreet

Harry is in the army and Louis is back in New York. Together, they get through Harry’s six month leave by sending a series of letters back and forth. They’ve done it before, and they can do it again.

And down the long and silent street by @whimsicule

The year is 1881 and if you’re alone in this world you might as well be dead, because starving dogs have no mercy.

Or: Wherein Louis and Harry are on the opposite ends of the social ladder, but their paths still cross on the filthy streets Louis calls his home. The odds are staked against them from the beginning, and even more when Louis’ past finally catches up with him.

Save your loving arms for a rainy day by BriaMaria / @briannamarguerite

“What’s got your panties in a twist, then, pop star?” the man finally asked, his gaze returning to Louis’ face.

Something pressed against Louis’ chest and for a moment Louis let himself wonder what it would be like to let all his secret spill out. To fall into the space between them and be devoured by this stranger. Terror mingled with bliss, tangling into a sharp throb he had to swallow hard against.

“Absolutely nothing,” Louis said instead. “Happy days, yeah?”

The man clicked his tongue once, a disappointed, wet tetch that Louis felt. Actually felt.

“My mistake.”

Louis turned desperate eyes on him, blinking too fast. He could see his own lashes flutter. “I’m living the dream, mate” he said and even he could hear the way his voice cracked along the edges. “What would I have to be upset about?”

Or the one where Louis is a pop star who has lost his voice and Harry helps him find it.

Finding Lou by stylinsoncity / @alienproof

Louis is the nomadic stranger who wanders into Harry’s bookstore. Harry is the skeptic who falls for him.

things have gotten closer to the sun by starseas

it’s strange, making the choice to face his past—it almost feels like he’s heading for the sun straight on, like he’s screaming come on and burn me, i deserve it.

-

when a solar flare is announced to end the world in twelve days, harry reunites with the people that he used to know better than the back of his own hand.

Gods & Monsters by velvetoscar / @mizzwilde

The instructions were simple: seduce and destroy Harry Styles. Not once did they discuss the option of Louis actually falling in love. So, naturally, that’s exactly what he did.

I really want to include Where Your Heart Is, because it’s one of my favorite fics, but it’s been deleted. I haven’t read Fire for A Heart because it’s TOO much for me to read MCD, but I’m sure it would make you cry. It’s also been deleted, but if anyone wants either of them, you can download them from here

How to bring Asriel back

(undertale spoilers)

With the power of seven human souls, a monster can become godlike. However, for a soulless flower, the equivalent of seven human souls was also able to change Flowey back to who he once was – Asriel. But it may not be that simple.


A human soul is not enough

First, it’s important to get out of the way the misconception that a single human soul would be enough to bring back Asriel. If a single soul was enough for Asriel to come back, Flowey wouldn’t have become Photoshop Flowey. While Photoshop Flowey’s purpose was to regain total control of the timeline and toy with Frisk, Flowey truly wants something more than that.

Six human souls do not give him the compassion he was missing. They do not give him his old body back. Flowey only gains incredible power after absorbing six human souls. Eventually, the human souls fight back against Photoshop Flowey, in response to Frisk’s calling for their help. They save Frisk despite supposedly being under Photoshop Flowey’s control. This is why Flowey refuses to use them again after the first time.

FLOWEY:
Hee hee hee. Don’t worry.
I know there’s no REAL point in fighting you.
The human souls would probably just revolt again.


Monsters souls are needed

To achieve his “REAL FORM”, Flowey needs the equivalent of seven human souls. With god-like powers, Flowey is able to create his desired form – whether that be his child self or a new, more powerful one. However, unable to take Frisk’s soul, Flowey goes after the next best thing – the monsters’ souls.

FLOWEY:
It’s all because you MADE THEM love you.
All the time you spent listening to them…
Encouraging them… Caring about them…
Without that, they wouldn’t have come here.

» read more: how does flowey steal the monsters’ souls?

It’s interesting that Flowey doesn’t go after the monsters until Frisk befriends them. However, there is something significant about this scene. Flowey captured six monsters.

This matches the number of human souls Flowey had stolen. Perhaps, the human souls are not able to revolt if they are matched with the same number of monster souls, and Flowey needed them within grabbing reach. There is also the possibility that with a greater number of souls, the less influence each soul has within the body.

» read more: bodysharing in undertale

Regardless of the exact reason, the human souls cannot revolt and Flowey achieves his “REAL FORM.” This turns out to be far more true than he may have realized. Once Frisk saves their friends, Frisk is able to reach out to Asriel and SAVE him.

» read more: the last person saved in asriel’s battle

It is thanks to Frisk and the monster souls that Asriel is able to feel again. This would not have been possible had Flowey not absorbed the monsters’ souls. Specifically, without the souls of Frisk’s friends.

ASRIEL:
As a flower, I was soulless.
I lacked the power to love other people.
However, with everyone’s souls inside me…
I not only have my own compassion back…
But I can feel every other monster’s as well.
They all care about each other so much.
And… they care about you too, Frisk.
I wish I could tell you how everyone feels about you.
Papyrus… Sans… Undyne… Alphys…
…Toriel.
Monsters are weird.

Asriel explicitly states that it is the monsters’ compassion that he feels. The humans, strangely enough, are not included. It is the monsters’ love for each other and Frisk that allows him to regain his own compassion. However, then Asriel reveals the sad truth.


Maintaining his true form

FLOWEY:
Frisk.
I have to go now.
Without the power of everyone’s souls…
I can’t keep maintaining this form.
In a little while…
I’ll turn back into a flower.

Notice how Asriel says he needs “the power of everyone’s souls” to maintain this form. This could mean that Asriel requires a power equivalent to seven souls or he requires human souls and monster souls. More than likely, he needs both cases to be true.

The power of seven human souls is god-like. It would make sense that seven human souls, or an equivalent, could keep Flowey as Asriel. However, being a soulless flower, Flowey is missing the love, hope, and compassion monster souls have. 

SNOWDIN LIBRARY BOOK:
Love, hope, compassion… This is what people say monster SOULs are made of.
But the absolute nature of “SOUL” is unknown.
After all, humans have proven their SOULs don’t need these things to exist.

While the Snowdin Library Book claims human souls can exist without compassion, it’s unlikely that all six human souls lack love and compassion. Defying Photoshop Flowey’s control, the human souls rebelled and saved Frisk – an act of compassion towards someone in need. Consider this with what Asriel says about feeling the monsters’ compassion rather than everyone’s. Being a flower infused with monster essence, Flowey may only be in tune with other monsters’ feelings.

FLOWEY:
At first, I used my powers for good.
I became “friends” with everyone.
I solved all their problems flawlessly.

This could also be a case of knowing the monsters. Flowey was created after the six humans had perished, with their determination. He never had a chance to know any of the humans. Frisk doesn’t know them either. On the other hand, Flowey had plenty of time to befriend the monsters. Even if Flowey was missing his compassion, there is no denying that he spent time getting to know these monsters. He even mentions how Papyrus is his favorite. He knows the monsters, so he can connect with their feelings when he has their souls inside of him. Of course, this is only after Frisk saves Asriel using a memory of his best friend, Chara.


Conclusion

To maintain his form and compassion, Asriel would need to keep all the souls he had absorbed – humans and monsters. But that isn’t something Asriel is willing to do.

Through the different instances of bodysharing, it’s clear that souls are still capable of will and desires, even after death. Chara took control of Asriel’s body and carried their own body to the village. The human souls fight back against Flowey and save Frisk. The monster souls have their own feelings and desires. Souls aren’t sources of power – they are still people. To keep the souls for himself would mean imprisoning them for as long as a god-like creature lives – possibly forever. This would go against Asriel’s character. It would be living at the expense of others. Asriel, who refused to kill the villagers at the cost of his life, is above taking others’ lives for his own.

Holiday - Tommy Shelby

The trip to London gets off to a rocky start. 

Holiday - Tommy Shelby | part of Gods + Monsters Series

You sat in the front seat beside Tommy. He was silent while he drove, though you weren’t entirely sure what he would have to talk about with you. He was clear that whatever business he needed you for was not something he felt the need to discuss with you. In the early hours of the morning you had walked to his house with a bag, just a change of clothes, and he’d handed you a gun.

[BTS] Reaction to you being short

/this was precious to write I can’t. GIFs aren’t mine, either. Anyways, feel free to suggest something -Ashes/

V: It was gold to him to watch you suffer for a little while. At first he got you anything you needed, but now he’s much more settled back and just admires you from behind as  you try to reach something that’s just barely out of your reach. he’s not incredibly mean, though, and will help you if you start climbing on stuff that’s dangerous.
“Here, here, let me help, you little kitten.”

Originally posted by mvssmedia

Suga: Suga.. He’s not affected. There may be the very occasional times he makes fun of your height, but other than that he doesn’t really care. The worst you may get is a small laugh as you try your hardest to reach something. There may also be the rare dirty comment here and there if you were alone. That’s all there really is to say about this one.
“Can you do it yourself?.. Good girl.”

Originally posted by imonaworldtour

Jin: He’d actually be really happy about this. He’s been dealing with five sons and the dad of the group. Having another princess to take care of is like a dream come true. He’d definitely pamper you, and one of his favorite things would be how you sink your head down on his shoulder as he pulls you close into a tight hug.
“How’s my little princess today?”

Originally posted by bwiseoks

Jimin: Finally. Someone shorter and smoller than him. He loves to tease you just as much as Jungkook loves to tease him, but he’s really gentle most of the time. However, you’re not oblivious to the obvious teasing behind your back to either Taehyung or Jungkook, and he really loves to see your reaction when you catch him.

“Eh? Oh, I’m so sorry Y/n! You’re just too cute not to talk about.”

Originally posted by beuits

Rap Monster: Complete and evil laughter. He loves that he’s so tall compared to you, and he will not hesitate to give you a piggy back ride if you’re alone in your house together. He doesn’t treat you any different like Jungkook does most of the time, but if you can’t reach the top shelf, he’d give you this big and playful grin before either getting it for you or picking you up so you can get it for yourself.
“Can’t reach the sugar? Don’t worry, I got this.”

Originally posted by ksjknj

J Hope: More than likely, if you can’t reach something, he’s laughing at you somewhere. You’ve grown used to it, though, and don’t really mind that he laughs at your height. After all, you’re only a few inches shorter than him, so there was no big deal really. If you couldn’t get it, all you needed to do was about ten minutes of begging your boyfriend, and he’ll get it for you.. I wonder if you can hear the sarcasm there?
“Yeah, you can get it Y/n! Or, maybe not.”

Originally posted by minsecretsoul

Jungkook: Literally your knight in shining armor, with a sharp tongue. Nine times out of ten he’ll get you exactly what you need, but you can hear him snickering under his breath, calling you ‘cute’ and such. You don’t really mind it, but sometimes you have to admit you feel like a kid and you want to tell him that you’re not. When you do, though, all you get is a pat on the head with a small “I know.”
“Here, let me get it, little princess."

Monster Boy Challenge: Day 26 - Francoeur - Favorite Monster Boy Character

I think this is suppose to mean ‘favorite monster boy from a movie/video game/tv show.’  I hope that’s right.  Either way, I don’t really have a set answer for this.  So many of my favorite characters are monsters and freaks.  I saw this movie again recently, though and Francoeur is still pretty great :D  I didn’t bother with a full body portrait, since he isn’t my character.

If you thought he would say something cheesy jokes on you. Probably you would get a bit mad, but not really.

My Favorite Monster Girls

As part of the Monday portion of the Week of Toku Ladies created by @week-of-toku-ladies which involves Monster Ladies, I decided to make one of my lists for my favorite Monster Ladies in Super Sentai. These are women who either ARE monsters disguised as human women or women who turn into monsters. I’m not including any completely human looking villains here or the whole list would be characters played by Machiko Soga.

5. Princess Multiwa from Chouriki Sentai Ohranger

More of an evil robot than a true monster but as all of the monsters in this series were robots, I am counting her. Princess Multiwa was the niece of Empress Hysteria of the Machine Empire Baranoia and married the Prince, Buldont when he took the throne from his Father who had been killed in a coup.  Multiwa is a skilled archer and even has a human form, though she only uses it once in the series.  She’s on the list for being a cruel, heartless robot… and also because for a robot, she’s kind of cute!

4. Madame Noir from Ressha Sentai ToQger

Madame Noir just has an amazing look.  She’s a monstrous version of a Victorian-style Lady with a very Gothic and creepy style to her.  She is a member of the Shadow Line and her main goal seems to be to get her daughter Glitter, to marry to Emperor of Darkness, thus elevating her to Royal status.  She really doesn’t care what her daughter wants, it’s all about how her daughter can be used to elevate her own status, which is very much in tune with her European Nobility stylings.  Plus, she has a parasol and parasols are just cool.

3.  Leh Näfel from Choushinsei Flashman

This lovely villainess played by the wonderful Sayoko Hagiwara (who also portrayed DynaPink in 1983′s Kagaku Sentai Dynaman) is a catwoman cyborg member of the Resconstructive Empire Mess. She is one of the Empire’s field commanders and can often be seen accompanied by her two underlings, Wolk and Kilt.  She can also transform into the monstrous Näfelura, which brings out even more of her feline nature.

2. Lami from Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger

This is one of the most famous of the ladies who turn into monsters on this list, especially among Western fans for she was converted into Scorpina for the first season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.  I like her Japanese version much better though as she doesn’t just vanish for no reason without explanation. She is Bandora’s spy and can disguise herself in various costumes.  She is also the wife of Grifforzer and at the end of the series, they have a baby together.  The reason she makes the list (other than being awesome) is that when she grows, she takes on an entirely monstrous form called Lami Scorpion.

1. Mele from Jyuken Sentai Gekiranger

Mele tops a lot of my lists because I just freaking love her!  She makes this one for two additional reasons that qualify her for the monster list. 

1) She can transform into a chameleon creature.  This gives her the ability to blend into her surroundings and use her tongue as a long-ranger weapon. Much like Lami above, she is a spy and uses her powers in this form to watch while remaining completely unnoticed.

2) She is undead. Mele originally died hundreds of years ago during the original GekiRin Rebellion that split the art of Jyuken into two opposing schools and philosophies.  She was brought back to life by Rio, who used his own amazing Rinki to make her almost entirely human.  Though she may look like a mortal woman, she is still undead, unable to enjoy the full range of experiences humans can have.  She wants to be fully human so that she can love Rio and be with him.

So, there is my short list.  Hope you enjoyed it and please, check out the other posts on @week-of-toku-ladies for more fun!

Shin Godzilla: First Impressions

After, like, literally a year since its release, I’ve finally seen Shin Godzilla.  I feel like I need to process it a lot more before I can give it an actual review – and rewatch it at least once – but I also feel a, I dunno, expectation to weigh in on it at this point?

There’s going to be some spoilers here, and it might get long winded, so I’ll put most of my assorted thoughts after the cut.  Here’s the short version first though:

It’s one of the most unique takes on Godzilla – both the character and the story – that we’ve ever gotten.  It has excellent visuals, and succeeds in its attempt to make Godzilla more terrifying as a source of horror and conflict than the character has ever been before. It’s creative and intensely strange.

And I’m kind of worried to admit I didn’t love it the way, like, almost all of you do.

I didn’t hate it.  In fact I like a lot of aspects of it.  But it’s not going to be one of my favorite Godzilla movies and I’m so, so sorry for that.

Episode Review: ‘The Wild Hunt' (S09E15)
  • Airdate: September 17, 2017
  • Story by: Kent Osborne, Adam Muto, Jack Pendarvis, Julia Pott
  • Storyboarded by: Sam Alden, Erik Fountain, & Polly Guo
  • Directed by: Cole Sanchez (supervising), Sandra Lee (art)

“Fear the Grumbo!”

The last time we saw Finn, he had just killed his plant-doppelganger, Fern. The trauma of that battle noticeably effected Finn, and the trauma continues on in “The Wild Hunt”.

The episode opens with the reveal that the Candy Kingdom has been plagued by a giant, monstrous banana-muntant that is eventually dubbed “The Grumbo”. The monster presumably eats banana guards, leaving only their peels behind. Finn and Jake disguise themselves as guards and hide in the barracks, waiting to ambush the monster in the middle of the night. When the Grumbo finally does show up, Jake manages to temporarily subdue it, but Finn finds himself unable to deliver the coup de grâce (a phrase that several characters use in this episode, each time with humorous mispronunciations). Every time he goes to drive his sword into the beast, he sees Fern’s face, begging not to be killed.

Finn’s inability to kill the Grumbo is a recurring problem throughout “The Wild Hunt”. In fact, this episode is an excellent character study of Finn, showing that his (accidental!) killing of Fern truly traumatized him. Finn normally doesn’t have an issue with slaying evil monsters, but with Fern, he realizes that his doppelganger was not necessarily evil and that he could have been saved with enough help and therapy. There’s also the added layer of Finn having, effectively, murdered his alternate-universe self. That’s got to be quite an awkward and uncomfortable feeling. Either way, in this episode, Finn is a ball of strong, explosive emotions that prevent him from carrying through with his mission to rid Ooo of, in this case, invasive species.

That’s where Huntress Wizard comes into play. Huntress Wizard is perhaps my favorite ancillary character (and I’m also quite the fan of Jenny Slate), so I was quite delighted that she played a part in “The Wild Hunt”’s most important parts. To be honest, I was a bit surprised that Huntress Wizard even had such a central role in this episode, given how her last major appearance in “Flute Spell” suggested that she and Finn would never really see each other again. Oh well, I shan’t complain.

Finn and Huntress Wizard team up and track the monster to its lair. It is here that a spectacular showdown occurs. While Adventure Time has had some action-heavy scenes in the past, I feel that it has always been a bit clumsy with how it blocks out those sequences. Jesse Moynihan once wrote about how difficult it is to storyboard actions sequences, because you have to take something that is still and two-dimensional and turn it into something that is dynamic and gives the illusion of three-dimensions. But with “The Wild Hunt,” this sort of stiffness evaporates. I do not think it is hyperbolic to say that the action scenes in this episode are the best that the show has ever done. With that said, they are rather brief, and are confined almost entirely to the climactic fight with the Grumbo. Buy, hey, I ain’t complaining. The movement is really fluid, and the action zippy and lively. Based on how the characters are drawn, it seems that this was the doing of either Erik Fountain or Polly Guo. Whoever was responsible deserves mad props!

Huntress Wizard manages to snap Finn out of his problem by putting herself in harms way. Finn then sees her as Fern, and manages to kill the Grumbo before he does her any harm. After the confrontation, Finn and Huntress Wizard share a quick kiss (remember: they totally have the hots for one another), and its revealed that the banana guards are alive, just bereft of their peels. Finn and Huntress wizard contemplate where the creature came from, and Huntress Wizard notes that the Grumbo was made of synthetic candy. The audience then learns that the creature was created by none other than Bubblegum’s occasionally-mentioned Uncle Gumbald…

“The Wild Hunt” was originally supposed to be the ninth season premiere, but do to CN’s finagling with the season dividers, it is merely a mid-season entry. I actually think this works better for the episode; had it been the touted “ninth season premiere”, I could have seen myself walking away somewhat disappointed. It’s true, we get the return of Huntress Wizard, and the action sequences are quite good, but it’s not exactly what I’d call premiere-level. Having it be just a regular episode with a coda that hints at something greater (a la “In Your Footsteps” from season four), however, does wonders, allowing a somewhat normal episode to end on an exciting note.

Mushroom War Evidence: Nothing.

Final Grade:

holding out for a hero

This is honestly the shortest one of the days, mainly because of all the fics of this week that I want to expand on, this is going to be the shortest. Still, this is my favorite mythological couple, even more than Hades/Persephone. May I introduce my Jonsa remix of Eros/Psyche?

Title is from Holding Out For a Hero by the one and only Bonnie Tyler.

character(s): kim jongdae, kim minseok (briefly mentioned) 


as the sun shines through the window and hits your face, someone is brushing your hair back. you peek through half-open eyes to see that jongdae, your husband, is smiling down at you. you smile and stretch out, groaning in the process.

“good morning wifey” he said as you lightly hummed

“good morning ugly” you said as he pouted

“and i thought we were going to get along today” he smirked, the light patter of footsteps interrupting your banter

“mommy! daddy!” your little girl exclaimed, clutching her favorite elephant stuffed animal that minseok brought for her

“good morning princess” you said as she climbed up and sat in between you two

“c-can we have chocolate pancakes?” she asked, the brightest smile on her face just melting both of your hearts

“yes we can honey, wanna help daddy make them while mommy gets ready?” jongdae asked as she nodded and started tugging his hands

“alright i’ll take care of this little bug. i love you” he said, pecking you and letting you go and do your morning routine

after you showered, washed your face, and got dressed you went outside and saw your little family sitting at the dining table. you hid behind the wall and pulled out your phone and took pictures of them.

“noo daddy stop” she squealed as jongdae chuckled and spread more chocolate sauce on her face

“fine” she pouted, dipping her tiny finger into her chocolate sauce and rubbing it all over his face

“what are my little troublemakers doing?” you said crossing your arms as they froze

“nothing, mommy” she said, a mischievous smile on her face that matched her father’s

“mmhm.. well breakfast looks delicious. let’s get you cleaned up” you said jongdae kissed her cheek and went to get ready for work

“uncle minseok is my favorite” your daughter yelled as you placed a hand over your mouth to stop from laughing

“say it again baby” you whispered as she squished your cheeks together

“uncle minseok is my favorite. i love him” she giggled, her eyes lit brightly as the water shut off

“excuse me” a voice said as jongdae came out in just a towel

“who taught you that?” he asked as she looked at you

“mommy” she said excitedly as you giggled

“well if either of you ever say that again, you’ll get a visit from the tickle monster” he said before tickling your daughter as she giggled

jongdae strode back to the room as you wiped your daughters face. you were both making faces at each other while jongdae took pictures. he looked at you two with awe, he never imagined to find such peace and happiness in his life.

“well i have a packed day today, i won’t see you at work. have fun at school baby” he said kissing her cheeks and rushing out the door

“alright let’s get you dressed and ready for school” you said as she pouted but walked to her room with you behind her

after getting dressed and dropping her off that the daycare/school you drove to your job as a choreographer for sm. you checked your texts and saw nct 127 written in your schedule. you’ve met the rookie group on a few occasions and they seemed like amazing people.

“hi! i’m y/n. i’ll be choreographer for your new comeback. i’m sorry if i forget names, but hopefully we can work well together” you said cheerfully as they bowed to greet you

after an arduous dance practice you said your goodbyes and drove to get your daughter from daycare. you had quick small talk with the other parents before leaving to take her home. you made a light dinner for you both and helped her bathe.

“mommy, when is daddy coming back home?” she asked as you looked at your phone

“i’m not sure sweetie, i’m sure it’ll be soon. do you wanna watch some tv after i shower?” you asked as she nodded excitedly

“ok i’ll wait on the couch for you” she said, throwing on her pajamas and running to the couch

you chuckled and went to your own bathroom to shower and put on a face mask. after that you joined your daughter on the couch and sat her on your lap. you both watched the cartoon until you she fell asleep. so you carried her into her room and placing her on her bed and tucking her in. 

“goodnight baby” you said, kissing her forehead and walking to your room. you looked at the time and sighed

“i’m home” a loud voice said as your daughter instantly woke up

“daddy” she exclaimed, running out to the living room, enveloping her dad in a hug, you stood by the wall watching him with a cocked eyebrow and a half annoyed expression

“honey go back to bed, daddy will come in later” he said upon seeing your expression as she pouted but obeyed his command

“baby…” he said as you rolled your eyes and walked past him, gesturing to the food you left on the table and went to your room

after he ate he silently crept into the dark room. he changed into sweatpants and a shirt.

“babe? i’m sorry, i know i should’ve texted you. i got caught up with the guys” he sighed, pulling you into him

“bro she was just about to fall asleep. go tuck your daughter in” you said, a light smile on your face

“yes ma’am” he said dashing out of the room as you got comfortable

five minutes later he came back in the room, watching your chest rise up and down with every breath. he finally got into bed and wrapped his arm around you, falling asleep more peacefully than ever before.

Hi! For the prompt-a-thon, can I have a Tsukihina where Natsu asks them when will they get married and so that Kei-nii can be her big brother no.2 :)

Kei glances down at the small, brightly colored head beside him, then over at Shouyou, who looks eternally embarrassed that he is in this situation. Kei cannot help a tiny smile, amused. Natsu, the source of Shouyou’s consternation, brightens when her favorite superhero appears on the screen again.

Whoosh! Bam! Go, Mr. Black!” Natsu cheers, beaming as the hero rushes into battle. Shouyou looks over at Kei and grimaces.

“Sorry,” he whispers over Natsu’s head. “I didn’t think my parents would rope us into babysitting…”

“It’s alright,” Kei says quietly. He had come over to Shouyou’s house for a study session that would have turned into a heavy petting session, but he doesn’t mind this, either. The movie has dinosaur monsters in it, and Kei likes spotting them. He likes spending time with Shouyou no matter what they do, and Natsu isn’t difficult to deal with. She’s just a smaller version of Shouyou, and she loves Kei.

“Kei-nii?” Natsu pipes up out of the blue, when a commercial comes on. “When are you going to marry oniichan?”

what’s your favorite bts (but not officially bangtan boys) song?? like either pre-debut or featuring (like jhope in animal etc etc) or ..well yeah? idk i think u seem pretty into ~Music~~ and i want to know what your opinion is!

I picked Something by Rap Monster because it’s one of his PBR&B songs and I think it shows another side of Namjoon. He uses a Drake Instrumental and sings for most of the song: it’s pretty cute to be honest… I’m a sucker. 

♫ This could be something ♫

BTS reaction: catching you jamming out to Twenty One Pilots

I love TØP omg! Thank you for requesting xx


Jin/Kim Seokjin:

It might not be his kind of music, but he would still love to come home to hear you trying to rap along to ‘Heavydirtysoul’. So he will just watch you with a smile, until you notice him and have a minor heart attack. Then he will just laugh and peck your nose, telling you to keep practicing.

Suga/Min Yoongi:

He had heard you listen to them before. It might not be what he listens to himself, but there’s definitely worse music out there. And when he came home, he could hear you singing along to the chorus of ‘Lane Boy’. He knew the fast rapping part was coming up, because you had blasted that song so many times. He would silently sneak up to you, wanting to hear you fail. But when you nailed that, he would just be in shock, and compliment you on your skills.

J-Hope/Jung Hoseok:

He’s probably the type of person who listens to different types of music depending on his mood. So if he felt like it, he would simply join you. But if not, he would either watch you with a cute smile, or ask if you could maybe turn it down a bit.

Legit one of my absolute favorite gifs of him


Rap Monster/Kim Namjoon:

He could definitely jam out to some TØP sometimes. But, most of the time, he’ll let you do that, while he watches you without you knowing. Not in a creepy way. It’s just that he really enjoys seeing you do that, but knows that you will stop if you know that he’s there. But the times you notice him, he will play it off quite teasingly.

Jimin/Park Jimin:

Not his kind of music. But your cute dances while you try to rap along while cooking definitely makes up for it. He would just lean against the doorframe and watch you with a huge grin. He would be too busy admiring you to worry about you catching him doing so. So when you do, and let out a shriek, he will get just as surprised as you.

V/Kim Taehyung:

I think he can jam out to any kind of music, including TØP. But he would find you too adorable to do so. Instead, he would film you, to have a clip to watch when he misses you on tour. But when you catch him, he will put is phone down, and try to make you less embarrassed by dancing as horribly as he can to the music, and try to get you to dance with him.

Jungkook/Jeon Jeongguk:

He will watch you, but not for long. Give it a minute and he will reveal his presence. And then he will tease you about it. A lot. He would bring it up for days. But he would make sure to not take it too far, because he actually loves catching you in those little moments because you are just too adorable, so he doesn’t want to make you embarrassed enough to stop.

Aja what is your favourite fic that you've ever written and why do you love it so much?

Honestly, it’s probably either Fruitless or Golden. Fruitless is almost a year old now from its end date (I’m crying), it’s 15 chapters long, and thus far I have never put so much effort into a fic than that one. It’s BokuAka which is one of my favorite Haikyuu ships and I really think I broke down some of the character stereotypes in that?? Like, Bokuto isn’t some stupid guy who just says HEY HEY HEY all the time, he’s cunning and he’s smart. Akaashi isn’t some emotionless monster, he can break under the pressure. It’s very special to me, plus it’s my most popular fic on AO3 (it’s almost at 700 kudos!!)

Now Golden is the epitome of an angst fic and the darkness of my heart. Idk why I wanted to kill Otabek but I love killing fan favorites. And breaking Yuri was really fun because he’s so loud and emotional and he just kind of shuts down here!
