Since Jin’s the oldest, he would try to be mature and understanding about the situation. He’d pretend to be cool with it and even joke about being more handsome than the actor. But after a while, he wouldn’t be able to hold in his annoyance anymore and crack.
“So…why did you kiss him and not another member?”
Suga understood it was all for work, but that doesn’t mean he’s happy about it. However unlike Jin, he wouldn’t bother hiding his annoyance whenever someone brought it up.
It would annoy him for days, but he would refuse to let you know how much it really bugged him.
“Can we stop talking about that shitty music video?”
Hobi would be the most honest and direct with his feelings. He would pause the video the moment the kiss happens, point to the screen while looking at you…
“That was a fake kiss, right?! RIGHT?!”
Then demand to know why you hadn’t told him sooner about the video and why he had to find out this way.
If he was younger, he would have probably been more jealous but he’s matured a lot since then. He’d see the humor in the situation and try not to make it into a big deal. If anything, he’ll try to work it to his advantage.
“Haha what was that? You looked so stiff and awkward! Maybe we need to practice more.”
Jimin would be sooooo pouty! He’d be sulking the entire day.
“Jagi…you better make this up to me later.”
Taehyung would be the most understanding since he has the most experience with acting. If anything he’d wish your company had hired him to be in the music video instead.
“Well, uh…that was a thing. Next time maybe…you guys could use a different actor..?”
Since Jungkook is the youngest he’s be more immature about it. He really wouldn’t be angry at you but would bring it up from time to time because he wouldn’t be able to let it go as easily as the others.
“Yaaah! Jagi, you better not let another guy touch you like that again!”
Hi there! I’m in love with your blog, and I know that there are a lot of specifically Pietro blogs, but I love your style, so I was wondering if you could do something of Pietro? Maybe it’s movie night and the reader never told anybody she liked to cuddle but Pietro kinda offers and he can’t stop staring at her and saying cute things then they fall asleep together all tangled. Idk I just need FLUFF!
A/N: I’ve changed the ‘never told anybody she liked to cuddle’ to ‘haven’t been cuddled for ages’ - I hope you still like it?
Word count: 1.4k
Warnings: none, this is pure sweet fluff.
Another movie night, another rom-com on the agenda. How delightful, You thought to yourself. Everyone around you is either loved up or is having a casual friends-with-benefits arrangement. Meanwhile you’re stuck in the Avengers Tower, the rarest creature of them all - a singleton.
Let’s take a moment to appreciate yoongi’s hands. Seriously , his fingers make me want to kiss his lips so fucking hard , this doesn’t even make sense ik but can you hear me screaming rn? HOW CAN SOMEONE BE SO PERFECT. HOW CAN EVERY LITTLE DETAIL ABOUT HIM IS PERFECT I CAN’T
IM CRYING RN
omg, i never want you to stop writing!!! your scenarios are so good <3 could i request a neighbor wonho au?!
it was his birthday and im a bit late,,,but here take this neighbor au as my apology monbebe’s ;;~
such a good, wholehearted person that like recycles and cleans up trash around the apartment complex and makes sure that kids don’t cross the street on a red light if they’re not with their parents
has the heart of a soft angel but the muscles,,,,,,of like an champion athlete but that makes it even better instead of a friendly giant he’s a friendly,,,,,,,,strong person LOL
the older ladies are always so shocked to see wonho at the neighborhood farmers market on the weekends but there he is. buying some organic lettuce and honey or something,,,,,maybe a new potted plant for his kitchen
his apartment is really pretty,,,,like he keeps it really clean and he has this light blue color scheme going on
but also,,,,,,,,has like a liquor cabinet and if he rolls up his sleeves you’ll be shocked to see tattoos covering his arm,,,,,pretty flowers and hangul quotes,,,,,,things like that
isn’t it amazing how he’s own like fifty pound weights but also mason jars full of four-leaf clovers he’s found like what???? a great mix
and you don’t really talk to him or know much about him, aside from the fact that you once thought his tattoos were cool from afar
so when you end up outside of your apartment building late at night, you’re actually trying to wash some graffiti off the side of the building
you’re shocked when you hear someones voice fo “oh, let me help!”
and you turn to see wonho there, who looks like he’s just coming home from the gym. he drops his bag and takes on of the rolls of paper towel you have with you
and you’re like,,,,,,well you’re like “oh you don’t have to help-”
but he smiles, and you see how handsome he is up close with straight white teeth and sparkling eyes
and he’s like “good neighbors should keep the apartments clean together!!”
but see the problem isn’t actually that he’s helping you the problem is,,,,the reason you’re cleaning off the graffiti isn’t because you wanted to do your part in society,,,,,,,,,
it’s because that was an old piece of yours and now you wanted to draw over it
so it’s a bit awkward standing there with this prince-like neighbor of yours happily scrubbing away your art and,,,,,when you’re both done he goes “let me help you carry all of this back to your apartment!!”
and you panic a bit because he goes for your backpack (which is ofc, full of spray paint cans) and you’re like wAIt,,,but it’s too late because wonho picks up the bag and
out comes the cans, tumbling to his feet out of the open bag and you’re like “um - u m”
and wonho looks at them, then you, then the clean wall and it clicks in his head and you’re like
“listen - i never said i was cleaning it as a service to the neighborhood-”
but wonho puts up his hand and he’s like “it’s ok,,,,,,” and you’re like “well im just going to take-” and you reach out for the bag
but suddenly it’s dangling over your head as wonho holds it up and you’re like UM HOW ARE YOU STRONG ENOUGH TO HOLD THAT IN ONE HAND WHAT THE-
and he’s like “ill return it, but first you need to promise me something”
and you’re like what in the world is he going on about but when you try to jump up for your bag wonho is like “nope, promise me first”
and you’re like Fine ok WHAT and he’s like “whatever you graffiti, it isn’t going to be offensive ok?” and you look at him and you’re like,,,,,i wasn’t planning on making it offensive
and wonho is like “i know,,,,,but please don’t make it vulgar either kids in the neighborhood shouldn’t have to-”
and you laugh a little because you’re like he really is one of those people that’s always looking out for others and wonho pouts because hey, he’s being serious
and you’re like “i would never graffiti something like that, my speciality is drawing animals,,,,i was thinking to do like a wolf or something!” and wonho is like “a scary wolf?” and you’re like no LOL a cartoony one im not a serious artist or anything
and wonho hands you back your bag and he’s grinning now because hey,,,,a cartoon is ok,,,,that sounds cute
and you’re like “you can stay and watch just in case” and you’re half-joking
but somehow he does stay and he’s actually kind of even interesting in how graffiti works and you’re like “well first is your outline, and then you color it in!” and you even pass him a can so he can help you out
and when you’re done it’s like a cute wolf cub sitting in some flowers
and wonho is like “it’s so,,,,cute,,,” and you’re like “see, graffiti isn’t all that bad” and wonho is like “no, it’s fun!!! you really showed me a new side to it”
and you both go back inside the building but as you’re in the elevator wonho is like he looks down at his spray-stained hands and he’s like “not to annoy you anymore, but ,,,,,how do i get this off?”
and you giggle and you’re like “i know a method”
and you invite wonho over to your place and for someone so handsome and strong he becomes really shy and polite being in your house and it’s so adorable how he stands with his hands in front of him like a kid
and when you tell him to give you his hands so you can run them under the water first,,,,you notice his ears go red
and you’re like ???? he’S THE ONE THAt’s acting shY??? with a face and a body like that????
but it warms your heart tbh,,,,and once you get his hands all clean wonho thanks you with a bow and you’re like
as you walk him out into the hall you’re like “if i need help cleaning again, should i be ok with finding you?”
and wonho seems surprised at how forward you are, but then a smile settles in on his face and he’s like “yes!! today was fun but,,,,,,”
and you tilt your head in anticipation and wonho’s like “,,,,but you can also just find me to,,,,,hang out a bit more,,,,,,,,,and you know not graffiti in the middle of the night bUT only if you want!!”
and you grin and are like “are you saying i could ask you out?” and wonho,,,,,at the word date just blushes again but shrugs his shoulders and is like “,,,,yes?”
and it’s cute you’re like “ill think about it!~” with a wink and wonho feels like someone just shot an arrow through his chest,,,,,,,,,,how are you doing this to him?????
Something I, SJM fans, and Anti SJM blogs alike tend to poke fun at or call out is Sarah J Maas’s tendency to describe all/most characters as beautiful. A lot of people argue that this is a bad thing, and often talk about it as if it is self-indulgent, petty, and a sign of poor writing.
I’m going to argue the opposite. So if that isn’t too offensive to you, feel free to keep reading below.
I’ve lost him once, I can’t lose him twice (Newt x Reader)
Pairing: Newt Scamander/Reader
Warnings: Kinda angsty I guess
A/N: First imagine, I hope you to enjoy it English isn’t my mother language so sorry if there are grammatical mistakes
Request: Nope, this is because I’m trash
PD: God, I got a lot of trouble and I had to erased the original account where I post this and made other, so stressful, but here it is again! (Sorry for the ones who read and comment the original, love you peaches )
It was like you were the world’s favorite joke.
Like, how many chances are to fall head over heels for your best friend, twice?
Maybe one in a million, and you had to be the one, funny isn’t it? Yes, it isn’t.
Or maybe you didn’t fall in love twice, maybe you just never stopped loving him.
Newt Scamander was the cute loving Hufflepuff; with floppy cinnamon hair, beautiful hazel eyes and a sky of freckles that played along with his breathtaking shy smile; you got the luck to met in your first year at Hogwarts, and you became best friends really quickly, it was almost like a click. You two lived uncountable adventures like escape to the forbidden forest or hide a Niffler in his dorm.
He was your happiness, and you was his. An unbreakable friendship, or at least that was what you thought until third year. It was suppose to be wonderful, finally you’ll be able to receive Care of Magical Creatures, just you and Newt and a whole world of your beloved creatures.
That was the idea, but then, Leta Lestrange came into your life like a tornado, unexpected and destructive. At first you didn’t want to make it a big deal, trying to be a good friend and not to “monopolize” Newt, besides, by that time you were a little reluctant about your more than friendly feelings towards Newt, so you wanted to take it easy. The problem began when it wasn’t so easy to ignore how your escapes to the forbidden forest became hers, or when your dozens of hours of talking with Newt about whatever, became dozens of hours talking about Leta.
And it hurt, it was like feeling a Crucio curse over and over again, and after almost two years in the same situation, you couldn’t take it any more, and you two started to distance, and he became more and more attached to Leta, while you were suffering because of the realization that you had fell in love with your best friend, and you just lost him.
It was the beginning of the sixth year when Newt and you talked again, all the cabins at the Hogwarts’ Express were full, except for one, one you got to share with Newt, apparently Leta decided to spend the Christmas break at Hogwarts. At the begging there was a uncomfortable silence and a lot of stolen glances, then you started a really weird conversation, but it ended in laughs, like the beautiful old times… But you had to screw it.
Maybe you weren’t in all your senses when you brought up the subject of you two, and then Leta, you just couldn’t stop talking, it was almost a confession about your feelings, telling him how much you had miss him, and how Leta seems unfair with him sometimes, that she was just breaking your friendship, but you felt relieved because you were you, and Newt was Newt, and he would never get angry at you, right?
He didn’t yell at you, but you could felt his distressed icy voice stabbing your heart.
“For Merlin’s Beard Y/N, you can’t just dump me whenever you want and then return telling me that my, actually true fiend, is taking advantage of me. Can you please, I’m begging you, let me be happy, can you?”
A silent tear fell from his cheek while he abandoned the cabin in a race, you really didn’t notice the tears rolling down your face without any control until the Express’s whilst wake you up, until it was too late to run after Newt.
It was the last time you talked to him, you even didn’t see each other, it was officially over, he didn’t care about you, and you didn’t have to either, but you couldn’t help but care, far, far away you kept an eye on him, to make sure he was fine, sometimes you would find him sleep in the library and put a blanket over him, or a hot coco in his desk, although, he always thought it was Leta.
And you’re fine with that, looking after him in silence.
But you must break that silencie when you found out he was being expelled.
So you run.
You run as fast as you could.
Even when the salty water blur your eyes, you kept running, trying to catch the train whose whistle started to announce its departure.
His head pop out of a window, his teary eyes widen at your picture, running out of breath after him.
“I never dump you! I never stopped caring! I will always care!”
A small smile appeared in his sad face, his soft eyes were seeing directly to yours “I will owl you!” He said before disappearing from your vision.
“I love you…”
And you didn’t see Newt for years, sometimes you owl each other, but it wasn’t constant, you just know he had became a Magizoologist, and you’re so happy for him, actually you worked in the same department as him in the Ministry of Magic, but you entered by the time he was already in some sort of trip, so you never saw each other.
Until you got a new work, apparently someone in your division who was writing a book of magical creatures, make some “minor” disturbances in New York during his trip, your assignment was to assist and monitor him.
Big was your surprise when you found out that your new coworker was no one but Newton Artemis Fido Scamander, your best friend, your first love, the one you have “recovered from”.
“Newton” you said with a high pitch of surprise.
“Y/N” he smiled with gleaming eyes “You can call me Newt, you know?” A playful shy smile was painted in his freckled face.
And from that moment there was that “click” again, but this time, you will do it the right way, you wouldn’t fall for him, so you wouldn’t lost him.
Except that you didn’t do it the right way.
You actually fall for him, again.
But how could someone not fall for the caring, loving, handsome, shy, fantastic, quirky and absolutely adorable Magizoologist?
And that’s why you couldn’t blame Tina for falling for him too.
Apparently Newt has the same feelings for her.
So the story was repeating.
But you’re going to be strong, and do it the right way, you couldn’t get distant with Newt, again, you couldn’t lost him.
But nooo, you suck doing the right way in this too.
You sight as you see the hot coco in your mug.
“Oh hun, please stop.” Said Queenie, the poor legilimens who has been all the week listening to your useless thoughts because you have been remembering your story with Newt all over again.
Maybe it was because you sure was losing Newt again!
“Maybe you should talk to him.”
“I don’t know Queenie… you know I have already lost him… And I don’t want to do it again…” The blonde and you had met in your Hogwarts years, but only by letters, you got involved in a funny event where you send an owl randomly and you met someone new from every part of the world, Queenie received yours, since then you had been owling each other.
You were surprised but mostly glad when Newt returned to New York with you to make a visit to the Goldstein sisters, and find out that this Queenie was actually the Queenie you knew, because it didn’t matter if you haven’t met her in person until that day, to you, Queenie Goldstein was your best friend.
“Oh dear, you’re my best friend too! How sweet!”
You blush slightly and chuckle, the bubbly character of Queenie always cheer you up.
“Newt will be jealous if he finds out!”
Your face fades a little, sure he was going to, but just because of friendship.
“Oh hun! I’m sorry I didn’t meant to… You… Well, I insist you to talk with Newt.”
You look at her, maybe she was right… Queenie was right most part of the time.
The legilimens laughed. “Well thank you!”
“Yeah… Maybe I should talk to Newt about this, even if he doesn’t see me the way I see him, also some time together could bright me up!”
“Yes! Now got into that case!”
Now you laugh, it was feeding time anyway.
“Thanks Queenie! You’re the best!” you said before going into the case, jumping a little.
“Oh, I know” Queenie smiled, suddenly her face went pale and her smile faded.
You were in Newt’s small shed, rolling up the sleeves of your working shirt, when someone open the door that separated the comfy room from a fantastic world full of the creatures that you utterly love. The handsome magizoologist made his appearance being completely adorable.
“Hi!” you greeted smiling “It’s feeding time! Also, can I talk to you about something?”
“Um, sure” his lopsided smile appeared in his face. “But, erm, it’s just that I’ve already feed the animals, with Tina.”
“Oh…” by the corner of your eye you could see Tina behind Newt, holding hands with him.
“It’s okay right? It’s just, I needed to talk some stuff with her and… Merlin’s beard, a-are you mad?”
You were staring directly to the floor, trying to hide your face. “Oh… Oh no, Newt, i-it’s fine” you forced a smile to him “Honestly I’m like super glad, I was too tired today! Now that I don’t have anything to do, I will go up an rest. Bye!” You climb up quickly and run out of the building just to collide into Queenie, who was in the front door fixing her scarf.
“A-Are you going out?” You said cleaning your tears, it was useless to lied to her, she was a legilimens.
Queenie nod with a sympathetic smile. “I’m going to MACUSA for some papers, and then I’ll visit Jacob, do you wanna come?”
“I sure want to” you link your arm with hers and you to stared to walk, you really needed distraction.
The walk with the blonde really helped, you were amazed by the architecture of the MACUSA building, and Jacob’s pastries really helped lighten your mood, the owner of the bakery decided to walk you home.
So the five of you were currently having dinner in a, little, uncomfortable silence.
“You know? Y/N went with me to MACUSA!” Queenie exclaimed out of nowhere, you lift up your face with curiosity.
“Oh nice! Did you like it?” Tina smiled at you excited.
“Oh, yes, the architecture is very catching” you said shyly playing with a baby carrot in your plate.
“Well Y/N just looked interested in architecture, but some Aurors looked more interested in Y/N” Queenie said with a playful demeanor.
Your ears went red.
“Queenie!” you scold ashamed.
“Oh! And then, at the bakery, a bunch of no-majs were thinking a little bit loud about Y/N too!”
Newt seemed to flinch, you looked at him with curiosity, why did he reacted that way…? Your mind managed to create a lot of theories and conspiracies.
Then you see it.
Tina’s arm had brushed Newt’s. That was why he flinched, because he was shy and cute, and skin contact with another human affected him in such a beautiful way…
“Yeah… I-It was funny” you smiled a little “Jacob’s delicious creations has already satisfied my appetite, so sorry” you excuse yourself and went to Newt’s and yours bedroom.
You went down into the case, just to stopped to see Leta’s picture, it still hurts that Newt has a photo of Leta but none of you…
A sigh scape from your mouth as you went to the Niffler’s cave, the little pest was so nice at you. The furry animal curled up at your chest when you carry him in a hug.
“Hey there buddy…” you said rubbing his belly, he made content sounds making you chuckle. “You know? I wish I could be a Niffler, to stole Newt’s shiny golden heart…”
You see the small creature as a tear rolled down to your sad smile.
“Why was Leta a better Niffler than me?” You sit against the Niffler’s habitat cooing him. “I mean, I understand that Tina is a better Niffler, she is so cool and badass and just… I dunno, although Leta was badass too… Maybe it’s because I’m clumsy sometimes? Or do I cry too much?” you looked up to the sky “I’m a terrible little pest… Maybe I should have stayed away from Newt, I would like to run away…”
The Niffler make a little squeak, afraid of losing you.
You chuckle hugging him more “But I have you… And all the creatures, the case… Everything… Newt…” you sight while your voice cracked “Newt… Why did I had to fall in love with him…?” you cried, stressed “At Hogwarts I thought It was just a crush, but all this time, I never move from him, what does that means? That I will love him forever?” You lift up the Niffler trying to figure out an answer.
“I certainly hope so…” a well-known voice said behind you.
Slowly, but like, really slowly, you turn around to see Newt’s head pop out behind the Niffler’s tree.
“O-Oh my god… I didn’t, I-I wasn’t… I… I…” you covered your face trying to hide your shame, the Niffler run into his shiny cave, like giving you two some privacy.
You looked at him, making the effort to not break at his sight “I-Im so sorry, I-I didn’t meant to ruin our friendship, and I don’t want anything to change! I know you would never liked me back and that’s why I never told you! We can just pretend you didn’t heard anything!” you smiled, in an attempt to be strong.
“I’m tired of pretending, Y/N…”
Your heart broke a little, the fear running through your veins.
“S-So… Y-You want me to disap-”
Newt interrupted you abruptly.
“I’m tired of pretending I’m not in love with you, Y/N.”
Your eyes widened as you opened your mouth in surprise. “Y-You… You what?” Were you dreaming?
“I’m completely in love with my best friend, with you.”
“But you and Tina…” in your mind, this wasn’t making any sense.
Newt sigh walking in front of you, he helped you stand up holding you close to him.
“Yeah, that’s true, I was attracted to Tina, and also to Leta, but it’s not like what I feel for you, and I thought they could make my feelings go away… But they couldn’t, and I didn’t notice how much did it hurt you…” you could notice the glossy regret in his eyes as he caresses your cheek. “I… Queenie show me your letters to her… The ones were you told her how sad you were when Leta came, and how you cared about me in silence even though I always thought it was Leta, I also notice the marks of tears in the paper…” he sighed “Oh Y/N… I’m so sorry, I was so… So confused, and mad, because when I decided to tell you my feelings you started to get away, and I thought it was because you’re tired of me, and that you could never love me… But I didn’t realize I was the one that was pushing you back…”
You wanted to say something, but all this information gathering into your brain was to much to stated an understandable sentence, so you just stared directly at Newt’s eyes, at those beautiful green sea eyes that shines with a hint of ambar like a sun.
“And I didn’t notice either that it was happening again… I don’t love Tina… She is a really good friend, she was helping me to get over my feelings with you because I couldn’t take it anymore and I didn’t wanted to lose you…”
Newt looked directly in to your eyes, you move your hand softly and stroke his cheek, then in a delicate movement you pinched his cheek.
He flinched at the sudden attack. “What was that for?”
“I wanted to make sure I wasn’t dreaming…”
A little smile spread across your face as Newt’s thumb cleaned away your sad tears.
You cut him off, brushing your lips against his in a subtle, sweet movement, like an invitation for a dance, which Newt gladly accepted when he placed his hands around your waist, pulling you as closer as he could and shutting down his eyes to concentrate in the feeling of your lips, as the beat of your hearts started to race, the rhythm of the dance became more passionated, you and Newt had a perfect synchrony, the perfect match.
As the dance finished and you two pull out to breath, it was everything understood. You and Newt smiled to each other in a silent agreement. He pull you into a hug, ready to live the love you two have deserved for so many years.
Neither of you were going to lose each other, never.
You and him, started dancing again.
“Why don’t you have a photo of me like Leta’s?”
Newt sight as he searched for something in his peacock blue coat, the he suddenly take out a A6 sized album full of photos of you two and just you.
“Oh…” you blushed.
“Wait, I think I have other photos here” he searched again, making you chuckle.
“Oh! You really love me, don’t you Mr. Scamander?”
“Just a smidge” he said with a happy flattered smile.
Omg it’s my first fanfic ever xD I hope that it was okay and you had enjoyed it, pls tell me what I could do better! Thank you guys I really love this fandom! (Yeah, I’m kind of new in HP community, but so far it’s beautiful )
Be a limited edition in this world full of cheap copies!
And remember, your existences matters.
And there he stood, Harry the Heir himself; tall, handsome, scowling. “Lady Alayne. May I partner you in this dance?”
She considered for a moment. “No. I don’t think so.” Color rose to his cheeks. “I was unforgiveably rude to you in the yard. You must forgive me.”
“Must?” She tossed her hair, took a sip of wine, made him wait. “How can you forgive someone who is unforgiveably rude? Will you explain that to me, ser?”
Ser Harrold looked confused. “Please. One dance.”.
I love your aus so much! your writing is one of the things that i look forward to the most on tumblr! i hope you're having a great day! and can i request a small au for the8 please? ◕ ◡ ◕

also because can you imagine him in a silken black shirt, poets sleeves, bedazzled red jewels around the open collar and then,,,,,ofc,,,,,The Eye Makeup
a dashing blood red eyeliner that glitters when he steps out onto the stage
and holy moly,,,,,he’d look like some kind of,,,,,,evil prince,,,,,evil handsome prince,,,,,,,im crying writing this
his long legs look amazing when he’s on ice and doing the turns and complicated jumps
and like,,,,,,hoW CAN someones body be so flexible and look like Actual Water when they move????

and the skating ring where he practices is open to the public on some days and ,,,, you happen to be there because a friend of yours dragged you along
and you,,,,,,,cannot skate to save your life. or anyone else’s for that matter
and your friend is having a grand old time skating backwards and doing little turns and you’re stuck clinging to the wall for dear life
until suddenly you bump into someones back whose also on the wall and you’re like!!!!!! im sorry,,, i just suck really bad
but when you look up,,,,,,,,,,,,you see a somehow familiar face,,,,,,,,a very handsome ,,,, familiar face

and then you realize,,,,with a small sound,,,,,that you’re looking at XU MINGHAO,,,,,,,,,,,a world champion figure skater?????? and you’re like oh my god this is ten hundred times worse,,,, i made a fool myself on skates in front of a literal gOD of skates
but minghao is thinking the total opposite, he’d been leaning against the wall watching you try to wobble your way across the ice,,,,,,and tbh he found it really charming
and as you’re standing there, flustering over what to do, he takes your hand off the wall and he’s like “let me teach you, you’re not gonna learn if you don’t try.”
and your speechless,,,because??? he’s an professional????? how?????
but somehow you don’t feel scared with his hands in yours as he leads you to the center of the ring and he’s like “let’s first learn how to stand, ok?”

because wow xu minghao just flirted with you,,,,,,,,and it was really cute and oh his hands still on your waist,,,,,,,,,,,,don’t lose your balance and fall on the ice!!!!
This one gave me a little trouble because it’s really close to the artist one I’ve done in the past, but I did my best to make it unique.
The two of you usually hang out at his place, simply because there’s more room and he’s got a nicer setup for things like movies or gaming. When you’re not there, you go out.
You decide not to tell him because you want to surprise him with a gift; a painting of his LOLOL character.
In the meantime, you let him teach you about the game and even make your own character (it’s actually really fun?), and he’s so excited that it doesn’t take long for you to end up with top-notch gear like his.
When his birthday rolls around, you carefully wrap the two paintings you made and take it over to him, handing them to him in anticipation.
He unwraps them eagerly and gasps, his jaw dropping at both of them; one of his character standing majestically against one of his favorite backdrops in the game, and one of your character posing with his.
“They’re beautiful,” he murmurs, staring down at them. “Did you ask someone to paint them for you?”
You laugh, knowing this was likely to come up. “Nope. I painted them myself.”
His eyes widen and he just blinks at you a moment before setting them down and scooping you up into his arms, twirling you around once and placing a kiss on your lips.
“W-wow! That’s so amazing! You’re so talented, why didn’t you ever tell me? I can’t believe you managed to capture them both so well…” and he’s off, chattering happily about the pictures as well as your skill, making sure to state over and over again how amazed and proud he is of you.
“I’m going to show all of my friends how awesome of a girlfriend I have!”
You want so badly to impress him, to show him you’re worth his time, and so you tell him over the phone one day.
He says he’s impressed and that one day he hopes to see something of yours. So of course, you decide to paint something specifically for him to see.
What is the question, but the answer presents itself when he calls you one day after Jumin pressures him about doing a cat food commercial, and he mentions in passing that that he likes dogs.
When you get off the phone, you excitedly open your sketch pad, determined to find a dog you think represents him and paint it.
Then he hurts his ankle and you pour yourself into your work, hoping that the hints everyone but Jaehee have been sending about you possibly going to see him is true and wanting to have it done by then.
You barely finish in time, but you do. No sooner is the paint dry then you have to go.
The door opens to his apartment and you immediately hand him the canvas, holding your breath as he takes it, motioning you inside before looking at it.
“This is beautiful, but if I may ask, why this dog?” His eyes never leave the canvas and you can tell he’s just being curious, not rude.
“I wanted to pick a breed that I thought fit what I think of when i think of you. So I chose the Alaskan Malamute; handsome and strong.”
He carefully sets it down and pulls you into a hug, a gesture you happily return.
“Thank you, I love it. Your personality is reflected in the way you painted it: beautiful and kind.”
You start the painting of Zen as soon as you discover how hard she has it, thinking maybe it will at least let her know someone cares for her.
It doesn’t take much to get Zen on-board with the plan, and he digs up some super rare photos of him in past roles for you to choose from.
When it’s done, you hitch a taxi ride to where she lives, purposefully timing it to arrive when Zen does to give her the grinder.
It’s rolled up in a tube and stuffed in your backpack, so she has no idea you have anything for her.
Which means she looks even more surprised when you extract the tube and hand it over to her, softly saying you got her something, too.
She sits down her coffee and pops it open, unrolling it carefully once she pulls it out.
Her soft little gasp makes your heart feel like it’s going to burst.
Zen leans over to see which picture you chose, flashing you a smile and a thumbs up before making an excuse and leaving, so it’s just you and her.
There are tears in her eyes as she carefully rolls it up, placing it gently on her table. She stands and makes her way over to you and you stand as well, anticipating a hug.
You’re a bit surprised when she kisses you instead.
“Thank you,” she says softly when she pulls back, smiling at you. “Thank you for sharing your talent with me. It’s a beautiful portrait but… knowing you’re the one who made it makes it so much more special.”
He didn’t really know what you got up to at Rika’s apartment, and after moving in, he knew you repurposed one of the spare rooms, but he’s never really asked why in the few weeks you’ve been living there.
You leave the door open when you go in and he can hear music playing, but he’s never felt the urge to interrupt you.
Today is a little different in that he’d had a particularly rough day at work and is really needing some of your wonderful comfort. Normally he might be able to make do with Elizabeth the 3rd, but she’s nowhere to be found.
The door is cracked open but he knocks anyway, waiting to enter until your voice calls out for him to do so.
His eyes widen as he steps in, taking in the sight of you in your painting clothes standing before your easel, canvas in front of you and Elizabeth the 3rd sitting just beyond, posing.
You beckon him over and he strides forward, eyes wandering over various other things you’ve been working on. It’s all impressive. He’s impressed.
What you’re currently working on is a painting based off your engagement photo, except that you seem to be adding Elizabeth the 3rd in.
“I thought you might like something like this for at work or just to have around here,” you say, smiling sweetly at him, and he feels his spirits lifting higher already.
“I will happily take anything you paint and display it in my office for all to see,” he says seriously, running a hand over your cheek. “I love you.”
He finds out fairly quickly just by seeing you do it over the CCTV. It isn’t long after that you mention it offhandedly in chat, saying you’re not that good.
That’s a lie; even through the grainy lens of the camera he can see how careful you are, how beautiful it is.
He’s entranced and will often spend any break he has watch (or re-watching) you paint, because it’s so relaxing to him and you really seem to enjoy it.
He makes a joke in the chat room that you should paint him a picture of Longcat. Or Elly, although Jumin’s quick to shoot that one down.
You just tease him back, but he notices you shift the angle you work in, making it so he can’t see what you’re doing.
It’s not long after he’s forced to come to your apartment and you two get in a fight over whether or not you can be friends. When you confront him yet again -this time by throwing your arms around him- he wonders why you’re pushing so hard, but he is wearing down.
You disappear suddenly before returning with a painting; one of him, surrounded by cats - including Elly and Longcat.
That’s it, he’s gone.
It’s not quite completed and he asks if he can watch you work on it. You agree, of course.
“Babe, let’s go to the space station. I could spend the rest of my life with you, watching you paint.”
When he makes a passing comment about this being his last batch of photos to sell, you mention maybe you could try your paintings to see if they’d sell.
He gets curious and looks them up, while he can still see. Like him, you’re not widely known but you do have a following and he can see why; you’re fantastic.
It’s one of the things that helps you two bond. After everything happens at the ME headquarters and he miraculously survives, you help him paint as a way to still be able to express himself.
He can’t see well enough through the camera to take pictures anymore but he can still see the beauty of color, so he paints based on that.
He’ll never be good, not like you, but that doesn’t matter; in addition to the joy of it, he’s also falling for you.
“I’m so happy you were blessed with this talent; it’s what allowed me to grow closer to you.”
It takes a while for him to let you approach him after he’s rescued, but one of the first times you do is at his and Seven’s birthday party where you present him with a picture of the sky at dawn, filled with colors and clouds.
He loves it but he’s confused; why are you giving him anything?
“Thank you, but I- I can’t accept this,” he says, trying to give it back. “I don’t deserve a gift from you.”
You gently push it back toward him. “Please, keep it,” you reply and he’s shocked to see some hurt in your eyes. Did he do that? Again? “I made it for you.”
“You… made it?” You nod, and he stares down at it. It’s lovely, really, and holds a promise of the tranquility he’s never felt.
He admires you for painting, and is shocked when one say you ask if he wants to paint with you. “It might be good for you,” you say, as if he really needs the excuse.
But it is good for him; the action provided him with the calm he feels when he looks at the picture you made him, and he starts to do it often, even when you’re not there.
Christmas comes around and you gift him another painting, this one of the night sky.
He hands you one back, blushing deeply as you open it. It’s a little cartoon of you and him painting, and the text says “thank you for letting me into your world. The next panel shows you outside together, eating ice cream and pointing at the clouds. “Would you like to be in mine?”
1. he’s literally just… so nice?? he’s so friendly and encouraging to rey, immediately gets along with poe, and that part where he calls leia “ma’am”??? pure. blessed.
2. he isn’t a pushover, though. finn stands up for himself and isn’t afraid to bite back when someone lashes out at him. he stands his ground and commands the attention of others when he speaks- its no wonder he was on course to becoming a respected leader in the first order!
3. in spite of his upbringing, finn has a strong sense of right and wrong. he has seen true evil at the hands of the first order, and yet he internalizes none of that as acceptable behavior. after his first battle, he decides that he can’t kill innocent people. his FIRST BATTLE.
4. i think it’s worth mentioning how handsome and funny and adorable he is?? hissmile is so radiant and his eyes are so pretty?? finn just oozes charisma and there’s no way any of you can convince me that people won’t be falling in love with him right and left at the resistance base.
5. he is so, so brave and selfless. its funny because despite all his talk about wanting to run away, despite how obviously scared he is, finn does the exact opposite. when their ship crashes on jakku, finn rushes to the wreckage hoping that poe had survived the crash. when rey is attacked by unkar plutt’s cronies, finn runs to aid her despite not even knowing her yet. finn returns to maz’s palace as soon as he senses the destruction of the hosnian system and fights the first order, even after he’d sworn to run away and never look back. he runs after rey, screaming her name, as she’s captured on takodana. he lies his way on to starkiller base to rescue her and is the first person to ever come back for her. people like to call him cowardly because he’s afraid, yet i believe he’s one of the bravest- if not THE bravest- characters i’ve ever seen. he acts in spite of his fear to do what’s right. he would put himself through hell for the people he loves and that? that makes him a hero.
* note that these aren’t in any particular order bc i just love finn so much
thank you so much for asking me this because i got to think about finn exclusively for ten minutes while i wrote this and already my day is infinitely better.
Can we just take a moment to appreciate Jessica Rabbit here. She is sexy, beautiful, tall, curvy, red haired, smart, mature, classy…basically every guys’ dream woman. She has guys throwing themselves at her, going crazy over her and fighting just to get a glimpse of her. She could literally have any guy she wanted. And yet, she falls in love and marries someone who isn’t conventionally handsome, but who has a great personality which appeals to hers and is fun to be around. All her life she’s probably been told how physically attractive she is and been used for her beauty, so it must be so wonderful for her to meet someone who wants to make her laugh and be genuinely happy rather than have her as a trophy wife. Roger appeals to her humour and appreciates her mentality and personality and is the first guy to treat her like a normal girl and a human being. Of course she’s going to be defensive when guys don’t understand what she sees in Roger. He was the first and only guy to respect her personality and wanted to know her as a person so he could make her genuinely happy. She didn’t settle for any less than she deserved.
