in a world where you have your true love tattooed on one wrist and your sworn enemy on the other, and you dont know which is which...
-k so her wrists are obviously kai and levana
-and when she was little she thought Kai was some terrible person she would loathe bc true love could mean romantic love or platonic love or familial love and Aunt Levana would never hurt her!!! Right???
-So she would follow around Levana, trying to spend as much time with her as possible, bc she knew her and Aunt Levana would have the most incredible aunt-niece relationship ever.
-hahaha but post-almost being burned alive, Peony is obsessed with Cinder’s wrists bc Kai!!! Like the prince!!!!!!
-meanwhile Pearl and Adri scornfully remind her that Kai is a common name, its probably some peasant
-and Cinder tries her best to stay impartial. Her gloves not only hide her cyborg hand but her tattoos as well, and she actually forgets about them for a long period of time….
-and then she meets the prince. And oh shit. Ohhhh shitttt
-cinder isnt the best at romantic interaction, and she cant tell if that was flirting?? He probably hates her, shes a cyborg…
-and the mission to figure out whats on his wrists begins
-but why is he always wearing long sleeves??
-and the night of the ball, she finally sees one of his wrists! and it says levana. Oh dear
-so all of a sudden shes in jail and kai and levana are getting married and her place is quite clear…but why is levana the other name on her wrist?
-so what keeps cinder going, all throughout scarlet and cress, is that they have to be soulmates. Theres no other way.
-hes got Cinder/Levana
-and when hes a little kid and hasnt met either, he always kinda hopes cinder is the true love because the name just sounds so much…warmer
-then the whole arranged marriage starts happening and kai’s like…idk bout this…but the wrists dont lie…
-but then he meets cinder and its just!!! marry me!!!
-and then he realizes it…one of these girls is his sworn enemy…
-shit shit shit shit shit shit shit
-but things seem to solve themselves when Cinder is arrested and becomes known as a terrorist
-except levanas definitely not his soulmate? Bc most soulmates dont want to kill you…
-and so its an internal battle because besides the wrists he knows both have glamours powerful enough to control his feelings
-some nights he lays in his bed and just kinda cries bc he doesnt know whats real anymore
-but when they kidnap kai from the wedding and theres finally some time to talk to cinder, she shows him her wrists
-and theyre like “either its u and me or we re fighting to the death over levanas affection”
-so that becomes an inside joke of theirs, and kais always like “hahaha im winning” leading up to his marriage w levana
-but they act like in love idiots throughout winter bc they now theyre soulmates
Thats kaider for yall, imma do the other ships on other posts to avoid longness

An old 90’s rap song blasted over the speakers as Peter felt his stomach drop. His eye contact with you was fleeting, and suddenly you were gone, having disappeared with Flash and his entourage upstairs. The people around him were all dancing to the rhythm of the music, but the second Peter saw you, everything froze. He made jokes about you not being good enough for Flash all the time, but he never thought he would ever actually see the two of you together. It sparked a profound rush of adrenaline in him, and he took a big breath of air and pushed through the crowd to follow you.
“That’s not even the best part…He knows about you and has been telling her to draw the line with you!” Taehyung shouts as Jimin is now looking down, clenching his fists.
“He’s going to fucking pay” Jimin growls.
It’s been a couple days since the party and Jimin had been avoiding you since, you never saw him around campus and the only class that you had with him he was never there, tonight was tutor session and you wanted to make sure if he was going to make it.
Y/n (4:32 PM): Are you coming to tutor session tonight?
Y/n (5:00 PM): Hello?
Jimin (5:35 PM): Head to the library I’ll be right there.
Y/n (5:45 PM): Okay.
You put down your phone as you headed to the library, you grabbed a coat as you headed out and felt the cold air hit your cheeks, when you walked into the library you saw Namjoon grabbing returned books and he looked over at you and smiled. “Hey y/n, good to see you here” he greeted as you smiled back.
“It’s so warm in here” you commented as he grinned and held his hands up to touch your cheeks.
“Your cheeks feel like ice” Namjoon grins as you laugh.
“Why the fuck are you touching my girlfriend?” You both hear Jimin yell as you both whip your heads to face him, Jimin is glaring at Namjoon and his hands are clenched. “I thought Taehyung was joking but clearly he’s not.”
“Jimin, it’s not what it looks like!” You exclaimed as Jimin glared at you.
“Save it,” he growled as he
headed to Namjoon, grabbing his shirt collar and pulling it up, “you want to
tell me why you’re getting so close to my girlfriend?” Namjoon didn’t even
wince when Jimin was yelling at him.
“Can you shut up please? We’re in
the library” Namjoon calmly replies as Jimin feels himself get more angry
seeing that Namjoon isn’t even guilty or scared of what Jimin is planning to do
“Okay, let’s take this outside”
Jimin suggests as Namjoon rolls his eyes.
“Look, I’m still working, if you
want to “fight” then you have to wait till I’m done work, okay?” Namjoon calmly
a reply not even bothering to look at Jimin, Jimin rolls his eyes as he looks
over to you.
“Are we going to study or not?”
Jimin asks as you quickly grab your books and head to the nearest table.
“So is there anything that you’re
not getting right now?” You asked as Jimin nodded.
“Yeah, my girlfriend is cheating
on me with the nerd who works at the library; do you have a math equation that
can help me understand that?” Jimin asks bitterly as you roll your eyes and
puff your cheeks.
“I’m not cheating on you; he was
just touching my cheeks because it was cold outside, I know that it looked very
strange.” You explained, hoping that Jimin would understand and stop this whole
“That’s not why I’m mad, I’m mad
because you kissed him that night when you left the party.” Jimin hisses as you
give him a confused look; you tried to think back to the night and try to remember
what happened but your mind was going blank.
“I didn’t kiss him, I stopped
him, and how do you know this anyways? Weren’t you at the party?” You asked as
Jimin clenched his papers tightly.
“Taehyung saw you…He caught you
guys kissing and even his photographic evidence.” Jimin explains as your eyes
widen, you didn’t even kiss him and Taehyung had a picture of you two, you were
ready to punch him.
“I didn’t kiss him though, I need
to see the picture, and it’s probably photo shopped.” You answered as Jimin
pulled up the picture, you remember the night clearly now, it was when you were
mad at Jimin and was venting to Namjoon and Namjoon tried to kiss you but you
stopped him. “I stopped him before he kissed me, it’s just how Taehyung took
the picture I swear!”
“I don’t want to hear it, I hate
hearing lies, and I can’t believe you would do that to me.” Jimin angrily
replies as you gasp.
“Jimin I would never lie to you,
and even if the things you did that night really made me want to kiss Namjoon,
I would have never done it because I love you!” You confessed as Jimin rolled
“Save it and what did I even do
that night?” Jimin asks as you scoff.
“You don’t remember? You
basically told me I wasn’t worth taking a Saturday off for and you’d rather
party than date me.” You hissed as Jimin rolled his eyes.
“Well right now, I’d rather party
than date you” he muttered as your eyes widened and you felt your heart kind of
“Excuse me?” You asked as Jimin
let out of a scoff.
“You act like I would cherish you
after my best friend shows me you’re cheating on me.” Jimin scoffs as you
“Jimin, I didn’t cheat on you,”
you were so frustrated with having to repeat that sentence over and over again,
Jimin didn’t seem to care and it was starting to make you cry, you felt the
tears well up and your breathing staggered.
“Save the fake tears, I don’t
want to see them” Jimin bitterly replies before grabbing his bag and heading to
the door, only to be stopped by Namjoon.
“I thought we were going to
fight? You’re going to give up, I know I’m tough and everything but I’ll let
you win to save your honour from me embarrassing you in front of your
girlfriend.” Namjoon taunts as Jimin glares at him.
“I’m not in the mood, we can
fight next time” Jimin growls as he leave the building, leaving you to cry by
yourself, Namjoon walks over and gives you a gentle smile.
“Hey best friend,” he gently
greets as he takes a seat beside you, you look up to him and give him a tearful
smile. Wiping your tears away, you take a deep breath in before speaking.
“Hi” you hoarsely greet back as
Namjoon gives you a sympathetic look.
“I’m so sorry for trying to kiss
you that night, if I knew that this was going to happen I would have avoided
all contact with you.” Namjoon jokes as you give back a tiny laugh.
“It’s okay, I knew that Jimin and
I weren’t going to last very long…we’re polar opposites, it was expected.” You
sigh as Namjoon give you a tiny smile.
“Not all the
time, he’s probably really upset and just needs time to cool down.” Namjoon
comforts you as you smile and thank him for being there for you.
You had class first thing in the morning
and you and Taehyung had a class together, you knew he came early so he could
flirt with the smart girls and hopefully get their notes for the class, when
you got there you saw Taehyung already snuggled up against one of the girls in
your class. “Hey, Taehyung!” You angrily shouted for his attention, gaining a
bit more attention from the girls than expected, Taehyung glared at you and
quickly replaced it with a smug smile.
“Awe girls look! It’s the slut
who cheated on my best friend” Taehyung shouts for the whole class to hear, the
room is filled with laughter and whispers as you feel your face heat up and
your eyes start to blur.
“Can we talk? Outside please?”
You asked calmly, as Taehyung looked at the girl who was tugging on his arm,
begging him not to go.
“Fine, but promise not to fuck me
too? I don’t want to catch whatever diseases you probably have.” Taehyung shouts
out for the whole class to hear again, you are ready to burst into tears or
just beat Taehyung up so much that even his own mother couldn’t recognise him. You
guys walk out of the class room and Taehyung is now glaring at you. “What do
you want? Are you hear to fuck me too so you can hurt Jimin again?” Taehyung
asks rudely as you slap him.
“I never cheated on Jimin, you
fucking framed me for something I didn’t do…I thought we were cool, you knew I
stopped him” You growled as Taehyung put his hand on the burning slap he had received
“You can’t expect me to believe
that, right? You were venting to this random boy in the library and listening
to him say that you should leave Jimin and you didn’t say anything to that.”
Taehyung glares at you, as you glare at him back.
“I didn’t say anything because I
was mad at Jimin for bringing me to a party when he promised to hang out just
us two for once, I don’t expect you to know because all you do is sleep with
other women.” You spat as Taehyung shrugged.
“At least I don’t hurt Jimin by
kissing other dudes” Taehyung replies as you glare at him again.
“Taehyung you have no right to
say I’m the cheater when we all know what happened with your last relationship,
at least I didn’t actually do the crime.” You taunt as Taehyung growls and
slams you against the wall.
“Don’t you ever bring that up”
Taehyung growls as you wince in pain from the contact of the locker and your
going on here?” The professor asks as he sees that you’re crying in pain and
that Taehyung’s face is red.
you come with me now!” You and Taehyung sat in the
office together, you sat with an ice pack to your back and Taehyung was sitting
there and looking down at his feet. “You went too far this time” the professor
sighed at Taehyung, “why are you two fighting? I’ve never seen you guys talk
let alone bother each other.
”“Professor, what Y/n and I do are
none of you business, you see, we’re just playing.” Taehyung smiles as he pats
your back, making you wince due to the pain from the locker.
“Look you two, you’re good
students, and well at least one of you is, but I don’t want you two to explore
your sexual fantasies in this school…that’s for your own time.” He shyly
explains as your eyes widen.
“That’s not what we were” you
tried to say before Taehyung spoke up.
“Yes, we’re very sorry, aren’t we
y/n? We should have never thought it was a good idea to explore whilst during
school” Taehyung grins as he glares at you and signals you to agree.
“Yeah, we’re very sorry” you
“Okay good, to think I would have
to expel you both, my heart would really break, then no one would get good
marks in my class” He dramatically replies as you both awkwardly chuckle “now
let’s head to class shall we?” The professor leads the way as Taehyung pulls
“Look sorry for what I said about
you earlier, I know that I shouldn’t have told Jimin that lie but I’ll tell him
the truth, thanks for not getting me expelled.” Taehyung smiles softly as you smile
