Filling in some of the missing time between Sorey passing out with a fever in the cathedral and Sorey waking up three days later… including some exhausted!Mikleo. Quite a lot of exhausted!Mikleo in this, actually.
For the unfamiliar, Mikleo and Lailah are ‘seraphs’, so they’re invisible to legit every normal human in the world - some people don’t even believe seraphs really exist any more since no one can see them. (I do believe in fairies! *claps hands* XD )
Mikleo could do nothing but hover uselessly as an unconscious, feverish Sorey was taken to the inn under Alisha’s direction. He kept pace with Sorey’s stretcher for the short trip, and sighed in relief when Sorey was finally laid into bed and only Alisha was left. It was much easier to avoid one human than many, and Mikleo had an inkling that Alisha had begun to realise he was there; he’d noticed her watching when he and Sorey had strategised during the incident in the shrine, and now she was looking around the room with a peculiar intensity.

“C'mon, you can do better…
don’t fuck this one up guys!” Chris yelled, clapping his hands as if he
was the coach. “Don’t you dare doing this to us!”
Proud yelling, muttered cursing and
stressed screaming everywhere around you in the VIP area of the stadium. The
fans sitting, standing or jumping roared their stress out as your team was in a
difficult time. The halftime was fast approaching and the Patriots struggled,
facing the seemingly glorious Falcons.
“Don’t freak out. Relax, big
boy,” you soothed, rubbing your boyfriend’s tensed back as he tapped his
foot on the floor.
“How can we relax, Y/N?!”
Scott, his brother told you and you rolled eyes, mentally noticing him he
wasn’t helping at all.
(First session with a new group, though all are long time friends. Party is asked to retrieve a stolen item from a rival wizard’s house. The group decides to leave their drunken Dwarf Fighter outside to keep watch due to the nearby guard house. Slowly during the raid on the house his stealth and perception checks get worse and worse.)
DM: The two guards you thought you saw are suddenly standing in front of you. One of them says “Oi, you. What’re you doin’ here?”
Dwarf: I belch and stagger away from the ugly statue. “Something I can do fer ya officers?”
DM: They look at each other an grin. The taller one steps forward and claps his hand on your shoulder -
Dwarf: No he doesn’t. I dodge.
DM: Ok. Roll Dex. (fails miserably) You try to dodge, but you’re pretty drunk, and he’s pretty big and his hand comes down on your shoulder.
(at this time, the rest of the party is leaving the house and half of them have failed their stealth rolls trying to climb over the wall into the far neighbors yard.)
DM: The guards hear the commotion and turn to check it out.
Dwarf: No they don’t. I punch the one who grabbed me.
DM: Roll an attack. (success) The guard, pissed off that this drunken dwarf managed to clock him in the jaw, draws his sword and stabs you with it.
Dwarf: Bring it.
(The rest of the party hears the scuffle in the street, and the Cleric decides to cast Light on a rock and throw it over the wall, failing the check to see how far it goes.)
DM: Suddenly this little ball of light comes sailing over the wall and drops to the ground, rolling into the street. Surprised, the guards turn away from you to go investigate this new weirdness.
Dwarf: I run.
DM: Do you want to roll stealth.
Dwarf: Nope. I just take off.
DM: OK. As the guards turn away from you you bolt. The guard that stabbed you attempts to grab you with a shout.
Dwarf: I dodge and keep running.
DM: Roll dex.
DM: Ok. You manage to duck out of the way of the grab and take off down the street. You are very short, wearing chain mail, have a shield strapped to your back, and you are very drunk. You run as fast as your little legs can take you, in a very zig zaggy line, and tink tink tink tink tink goes your armor as you run, arms pumping.
(Whole party laughs because DM stood up to mime the running. Dwarf is now called Tink Tink by the entire party.)

Both men stood silently as they watched you run Doomsday through with your blade, causing it to stumble back and fall into a pile of rubble and ash. It hit the wreckage with a thunderous clap before rolling onto its side, groaning and grappling at its newest wound with large fingers in the process as it gained its bearings and made an attempt to mount an erratic stance…
“You boys done with your catfight?” You sassed over your shoulder, flashing a smirk after seeing their dumbstruck expressions. “Because I could stand for a little help.”
Bruce and Clark looked to one another…
“You heard her.” Clark started. “Want to lend a hand?”
“Ladies first…” Bruce snarked.
“Based on what I’ve seen here today, that’s a complement.”
You watched from the bleachers as the Beacon Hills lacrosse team scored another point, Player 14 launching the ball into the net. Through his helmet, Isaac looked up at you and smiled.
You laughed, clapping your hands and cheering, excitement coursing through your veins.
The score was 17 to 13, and Beacon Hills was in the lead. “I can’t believe we’re winning!” The girl next to you exclaimed, surprise written all over her face.
“It’s that Lahey kid. He’s finally doing something useful.” Her friend replied. You couldn’t help but smile, despite their harsh words. Isaac had always been important. To you, at least.
When time had run out, the score came to a final 23 to 19. Students and parents alike cheered, rushing off the bleachers and onto the waiting field below.
You grabbed your jacket and pulled it over your shivering frame, the chilly night air sending your teeth chattering a bit. You slung your ba over your shoulder, and headed onto the field to look for Isaac.
Before you even made it halfway down the bleachers, a player from the other team was walking towards you.
“Hey there gorgeous,” He said, a smirk on his face. You raised your eyebrows, and brushed past him.
“Hey yourself,” You replied, jumping off the bleachers onto the grass, the boy following close behind.
“I’m Aaron.” He introduced, and you turned your back to him, standing on your tippy-toes to see over the crowd of heads.
“Come on, talk to me princess.” Aaron whispered, his hand now on your lower back. You flinched away from his touch, a frown forming on your lips.
“Go away,” You hissed, walking away.
“Don’t be like that-” You frantically hurried away, looking for Isaac, trying to get away from Aaron as fast as you could. You felt yourself bump into someone, sending you back a few feet.
“Y/N?” You looked up, a smile on Isaac’s face. You let out a breath of relief, before Aaron’s voice interrupted you.
“Why’d you run off?” The boy teased. You dug into Isaac’s side, your breath hitching in your throat.
“Babe, this guy bothering you?” Isaac asked, your cheeks turning red at the nickname. You nodded, and Aaron began to back up.
“Hey man, we were just talking!” He said, raising his hands in defense. Aaron took that moment to dart like a scared cat.
“Thanks-” You were cut off by Isaac’s lips on yours. You were taken by surprise for a moment, before kissing back, your fingers lacing together on the back of his neck. When he pulled away, it was all too soon.
“What w-was that for?” You stammered, a smile on your face, your cheeks tinted pink. He shrugged, looking away, then back to you.
“I was just kinda hoping that..ya know, you’d fall in love with me.” He replied. You laughed, bringing him down to your hight.
“I was already in love with you, Isaac.” You whispered, before diving in for another kiss.
I was wandering through a mall when I came across you about to die on top of a table in the food court, I only have a sword but I’m an expert in distraction
alternatively - I have no means of protecting myself, I’m trapped on this table surrounded by zombies, but there’s this weird person with a sword trying to bait the zombies away, hollering and clapping their hands. While I’m thankful, try not to get killed???
I’m part of this survivor group that has a no-outsider-policy, but you’re badly injured and can barely defend yourself
I’m trying to look for my sibling/other family member/friend/ex and you offered to help but you’re kind of shady and a bit too open, who do you work for?
I’m not one of them, I figured out a way to walk amongst them but your group is still certain I am because of a small injury I got but you’re the only one who believes me
I know there’s no cure but I’m not about to let you turn, I can’t live without you
I’m being hunted by my former group and you offered to help hide me even after I refused because then you would be involved
up until I met you, it’s been years since I had any human contact and it made me a little jaded and cynical, so how can you still be so naive and happy-go-lucky after all you’ve been through? Teach me your ways
we have little to no experience in firearms or melee weapons so our only option is to run and hide, but at least we have each other
Do you have any tips on writing really great mutual pining? It's a pretty big part of my next fic but I can't seem to get the emotions across in my writing ;-;
Plotting Great Romance
While “pining” implies an almost lack of romance, I still think the same goals of writing a great romance apply. You develop each of the two characters separately, and you develop a basic story for each of them separately, and then you see what happens when you bring them together. Think of it like clapping - each hand is capable of accomplishing a lot on its own, but when you slap your hands together, it creates a unique sound that one hand cannot produce on its own.
You could plot out the scenes/tension/suspense between them before developing each individual character, but I think it can be more challenging that way. So I would try to imagine the backstory, the characteristics, the wants, the needs, the goals, the motivations, the quirks, the interests…figure out who each of these characters is first.
Once you have that, you can start to think about how each character affects the other. What new characteristics do each bring out in the other? Are they good or bad? What ways do they challenge each other? What impact does each one have in the other’s life? Don’t think in terms of romance at this point. Just imagine your characters together, and imagine them separately. What’s the difference? What aspects of their personality do they suppress around the other and which ones do they set free?
Then, consider what qualities they each admire in the other. Why does each of them like being around the other? And counterpoint - what things frustrate them about the other?
When it comes to pining…
…make the reasons behind their unrequited romance good. A reader can quickly get frustrated by two characters who are simply too shy to admit their true feelings, or too naive to recognize chemistry and affection that is obviously mutual. This is easier than you think. Imagine what obstacles a relationship between them might have, and then have your character foresee this obstacle as too troublesome to deal with.
For example, in a Romeo/Juliet type storyline, two characters might pine for the other but fail to act on their feelings due to family expectations. An artist might never pursue art because their parents expect them to be a doctor, just like a person may not pursue another romantically because their parents wouldn’t approve.
Geography might be another potential obstacle. Two characters that meet unexpectedly while on vacation may hit it off, but knowing they each live on separate coastlines, they anticipate a stressful long-distance relationship and hold back on confessing feelings.
An existing relationship is a big one - a character might not feel fully committed to their current partner, but their partner has never treated them poorly and for all intents and purpose, they seem perfect for each other. So they hold back feelings for another person because they don’t want to hurt the person they’re currently with, who they do still care about deeply. Their life might also be comfortable with this person, or even well established, with a nice home and kids, and not wanting to hurt your children with a divorce is a big reason someone might hold back on feelings for someone else.
Basically, you need to consider what is stopping each character from confessing their feelings. Fear of rejection is implied - there needs to be more than that in order to carry mutual pining for an entire novel. There need to be other obstacles, and they need to be ones that your characters can predict, and ones they care about.
Let me put it much more simply. Instead of each character asking, “What if they don’t love me back?” have them ask, “What if they do love me back?” And consider what the answer to that question is. Once these feelings are requited, what are the consequences? What is each character afraid of?
So I think that would be my biggest suggestion - make their hesitations be about more than rejection. And when it comes to describing their emotions, don’t try too hard. Tell your story, and see what emotions naturally unfold. We convey emotion by putting ourselves into the shoes of our characters and imagining how it might make us feel. I think once you have the story well plotted and the characters well developed, it’ll become easier to describe what each of them is feeling.
A/N - Hi can you do a Joe one where it’s the reader and his wedding and the buttercreams do a really embarrassing speech for them x If you don’t want to or can’t that’s fine ❤
“I now pronounce you husband and wife, you may kiss the bride” My smile grew even bigger as I felt Joes lips on mine. Hearing everyone around cheering and clapping, I felt the tears building in my eyes. I finally married my best friend.
Walking down the aisle hand in hand with my now husband smiling and waving to all our friends and family. My feelings right now wouldn’t process. I am literally over the moon with happiness. All I could hear were people cheering “Yes Sugg” “Go On My Boy” and a few faint cries. I still cannot believe this is my wedding day. The wedding day I have been planning since a little girl. I was now living it out. Everyone else was gathered into another room with champagne, me and Joe were guided around the building for photos. We had photos on the stairs, in arch ways, in the gardens, and in front of the country side view. We were then joined by the bridesmaids who happened to be my sister and Zoe, the groomsmen Caspar, Josh, Oli, Jack, Conor, Mikey and our parents. Lastly We had photos with the whole group and I stood there being grateful to be surrounded by the people i love most.
While everyone moved to the reception room to take their seats, me and Joe waited back a bit giving everyone time to settle.
“I cannot believe we did it” Joe turned to look at me with a beaming smile.
“I’m still in shock, I’m generally so happy” I smiled back taking his hand in mine.
“After 6 years of being together and 8 years of friendship I can officially call you a Sugg”
“I finally fit in the Sugg family!” I cheered laughing.
“You’ve always been classed as a Sugg babe”
“But now we have it in writing”
“This is the happiest ive ever been, even though we’ve been in a relationship for so long, our next adventures start now”
“Our honeymoon, new house, new projects. Im so excited”
“Same love, it’s going to be something to treasure”
“I love you”
“I love you too”
“Are you two ready to go in?” The staff member asked. We glanced to each other and nodded. We followed the member of staff and waited behind the doors until we were told to go any further.
“Can i have your attention” The staff member started. “We’re all there to celebrate the newly weds, so please put your hands together for Mr and Mrs Sugg!” We walked in and everyone was on their feet, cheering. Glad we got someone to film this day, I can look back and remember this moment for a life time. We took our seats in front of everyone while they all settled down and allowed us to get comfy. After all the food was served and drinks were topped up Zoe got out her seat to walk in front of the table with a microphone in her hand.
“Hope you all are having a good time!” A few yeah’s and whistles flew around the room. “To kick off this evening, we are now going to move onto the speeches” Zoe turned to smirk at us both while i groaned and Joe nervous laughing knowing how embarrassing this was going to be. We watched as Josh took to the stage first also smirking as Zoe handed him the mic.
Joe placed hand on my leg and lent in close. “You know this is going to be interesting”
“I’m dreading it” I laughed turning to face Josh and linking my hand with Joes.
“I get the pleasure of starting this off. I remember meeting you Joe for the first time then i didn’t leave your apartment for months. I basically followed you and Caspar round like a lost dog. You used to get grumpy when i finished your milk or i didn’t wash up after myself. I can clearly say you haven’t changed. You’ve been a good friend buddy you’ve helped me through a lot of shit and i’m grateful to have a friend like you. I’m glad you found a girl like Y/N, she’s kept you in place but at the same time you’re still the Sugg i first met. Y/N you have a lot of work now that your married, he’s going to become even more lazy. You’re a talent women and you’ve been there to listen when i needed someone to. You’re like my sister and I wish you both the best for the future. Ill be round soon so you can cook me food” I’m glad Josh went first because he wouldn’t embarrass us. He’s the nice one out them all.
Next was Mikey.
“Cor i get to do a speech. I’ve always been the target and now i can target you two. You’ve been good friends to me over the past few years. Despite the bad things Joe has made me do or forced me to do such as having a leaf blower in my face to wearing tight red lacy boxers to trying to light my farts. I’ve even had to eat dry protein powder ruining one of my many black t-shirts. Joe your crazy ideas make you as a person, you’re one heck of a guy and you are very lucky to have Y/N, anyone would be. Y/N thanks for looking after me making sure i have eaten. No wonder i cant shed weight. I look forward to raiding your new sweets draw by the way”
Next was Conor.
“I would like to thank Y/N for introducing me to Joe, because of you i made a great friend and because of Joe I made even more. Y/N i would like to thank you for staring in so many of my covers and even on my album. I mean i still say i have the better voice but I’m not going to judge. I cannot believe you two are married now, I’ve seen your relationship grow these past years and I look forward to having something like this. You two are literally a perfect match. Joe i dont even know what to say about you. You are one of the most hilarious down-to-earth guys i know. You deserve to be happy. I’m glad it’s Y/N who has to deal with your strange ass. I’m surprised she can handle it. She has to wake up to you farting, coming home drunk but then again thinking about it you are both as crazy as each other. I remember coming round once and you both swapped clothes pretending to be each other. That was a weird sight. I wish you both the world of happiness you both deserve it”
Next was Jack.
“Suggy got married! To a gorgeous girl also i should have started youtube sooner maybe i could of snatched her. Im joking im joking. Seeing how happy you two are together makes me want this but it also makes me sick but in a good way. You are both good friends to me i couldn’t ask for better people in my life. Well sometimes i could replace Joe after what he’s made me do. Clamping my hand, sticking sellotape to our heads and ripping it out our hair and daring me to run down the street naked. I hope you enjoy people licking your ears Y/N because Joe will be doing that a lot when he’s drunk. trust me. I remember Joe telling us he was going to propose and how nervous he was. You should of heard the other plans he had. They weren’t as romantic. Y/N thank you for appearing in my videos to give me more views. Thanks for the many shout outs too. Like i said, you’re a beautiful women inside and out i know how happy Joe makes you. You’re both weird and I’m glad i know you. Hears to the future”
Next was Oli.
“Mr Joe Sugg? The Joe i know is actually married now! It feels so weird saying that. I’ve known you for so long and you haven’t changed one bit in a good way though! You both have helped me through a lot over the years with projects, videos, and life in general. I do appreciate it. Joe you are an absolute nutter. Seriously. I couldn’t ask for a better friend what friend would draw penis’ on your body or do jump scares every time we meet or would make me stay up will ridiculous times in the morning to set up pranks. I mean what friend would have a cardboard cut out of me? You better move that into your new home. I’ll always be watching then. Your relationship is probably the strongest i know. You’re both so open and that can be taken in different ways. I’ve seen them both naked. It was a few strange moments. Some moments i wish i could take back because i can still see them imagines in my head to this day. I also remember when i turned up at your apartment Joe was wearing this horse costume and Y/N was dressed like a cowgirl. I didn’t want to ask what went on. They said it was for a video but i dont believe that. I dont like to think what goes on in their minds. Moving on, Y/N you are one in a million you’ve been that one friend i can always rely on even if i’m in a bad mood you put up with me and i can speak on behalf of the other guys as well. You have so much patience and i respect you for that. You have a wonderful mind and a heart of gold. You are both lucky to have each other and im glad to call you both my best friends”
“I would like to start off with thanking Y/N for breaking my heart, you killed jaspar. I’m joking jaspar will always be round. I have known you both since we all started Youtube together. Remember our gang when we first started? The 3 of us, Zoe, Alfie, Tanya, Jim, Marcus, Niomi and Louise. Then it grew bigger. But look at the two of you now, i know you both never expected to get this far in life. I respect the both of you because you don’t take the famous title seriously, you just see yourselves as normal human beings doing something you love. It’s been amazing watching you both grow and seeing the success you’ve achieved. I couldn’t have wished it on better people. Joe, You are one or the bestest friend i could ask for. You are also one of the craziest dudes i know. Very spontaneous also. I could stand here all day and tell all our stories but i don’t want to bore you. Thank you for being my travelling buddy over the years. I’ve had some of the best memories with you such as doing Hit The Road. What an experience that was ay? and for everyone’s information i am still the best pizza maker here. Im not thankful for the pranks though. Filing my room with cups of water, setting many alarms, posters of my face all over the walls, filling the room with balloons then Oli popping out with a clown outside and the best one turning my apartment into a slip and slide. I’m also not going to miss seeing you naked when i walk into your room. I am defiantly not going to miss hearing you and Y/N have sex either. You loud buggers. The amount of times i’ve walked in on you both, i still do it today it’s like a curse! Y/N, i still remember meeting you for the first time. You were so shy and timid and now, now i cannot get you to shut up. You are like a boy only when it comes to burping though. Ive seen you when you only had a few thousand subscribers and now you are the top female Youtuber in the UK. I am so proud of your achievements. You seriously deserve it. If i ever needed cheering up i knew you were and still are the person to text or call. You are a positive soul. You and Joe have always been perfect for each other. You are literally the same person. I hope you both the best as a married couple. I love you both.”
I continued to wipe away the tears which were flowing from my eyes. I couldn’t of asked for better friends or a better husband.
This hit me and I really had to get this out! Bechloe For The Win!! Enjoy xx
Aubrey clapped her hands to get everyone’s attention. “Okay girls, you all have your own mini whiteboards underneath your seats. Pick it up and uncap your markers.”
Not understanding the purpose, the girls did as they were told. Fat Amy got the blonde’s attention by raising her hand questioningly. “Um I’m pretty sure we’re supposed to be singing…”
The captain rolled her eyes and turned to Amy. “I know! But I wanted us to do something productive to get to know one another even more. Teamwork is the most important aspect of Acapella. If you can’t work together as a team, you’ll not get anywhere in the competition.”
Chloe moved closer to her best friend, her smile lighting up her face. “She’s right girls! This is an amazing way of growing closer together. Stay positive!”
Beca groaned loudly, “I’m positive I’ll hate this.” Chloe giggled, the sound echoing sweetly like wind chimes in the DJ’s ears.
Fat Amy high-fived Beca, “Aw yeah Shawshank! Good one…” She trailed off as she felt the burning heat of Aubrey’s glare on the side of her face. “Um… I mean… What!” She finished awkwardly, unsuccessfully shrinking out of Aubrey’s line of sight in her seat.
Plastering a fake smile on her lips, Aubrey ignores the Australian and continues, “I want you to draw something of significant value to you.”
The girls looked at each other in confusion before shrugging and getting on with the task. Fat Amy leaned over to look at what Jessica was drawing, the quieter girl glaring at her and leaning away, tilting her whiteboard out of the prying eyes of the Australian.
Stacie had already finished and was inspecting her nails. Chloe had also finished and was sneaking peaks at Beca, wondering why the younger girl was smiling so widely. It was endearing to her, if somewhat unnerving.
A few minutes passed before Aubrey stood up once more, gaining everyone’s attention.
“Okay girls. I will go first to show you how everything works.” She holds up here picture for everyone to see. “This is-”
Beca interrupted her suddenly. “What on earth is that?! Why have you drawn a giraffe?” She was waving her arms emphatically as if emphasising her confusion, nearly smacking Ashley in the face.
Stacie shot a look of surprise to the other brunette. “What are you talking about Beca?! She’s clearly drawn a dildo, because she really needs to get laid-”
Aubrey’s eyes narrowed in irritation as she scowls at the DJ and the taller brunette, before taking a deep breath to calm herself down. If this continued, she knew that she might not be able to prevent herself from stress-vomiting over everything and everyone.
“This, before I was oh-so-rudely interrupted-” She paused, glowering at Stacie and Beca, “-is my dog Rocky. He’s my puggle and I miss him everyday. I have anxiety and having him in my arms always makes me feel better.” Aubrey’s heart always ached when she mentioned Rocky.
Chloe smiled sweetly at her best friend, knowing how much her dog meant to her. “My turn. My picture is of headphones.” She briefly looked over at the headphones in question, resting around a certain someone’s neck, before smiling brightly at the other girls.
“Headphones represent a way to separate you from the harshness of reality, and it’s a something that immerses you into a world where music is the only thing that matters. You can allow yourself to feel things through every beat and every lyric you hear. And sometimes when you feel all alone in the world, music comforts you. It takes you into its gentle embrace and shelters you from pain.” Chloe finished by looking down in embarrassment, before shyly glancing at the only other person in the room that would understand.
Unbeknownst to the other girls, Beca’s fingers subconsciously ran over the smooth skin adorning her headphones tattoo, tracing its outline gently. The younger girl had never met someone that understood just how important music is. Chloe was unique, and Beca found that her breath had been taken away by her answer. Her eyes locked onto Chloe’s and Beca could swear that there was this electricity between them.
Their moment was broken by Fat Amy, who stood up and suddenly shouted, “Well you aca-bitches are stupid. Obviously the most important thing has to be that ice-cream we get at Morellis, where the portions are bigger than Stacie’s breasts!”
The girl in question narrowed her eyes at the large blonde, before looking down at her goodies and realising that the Australian had a point. “She’s right, although my junk is bigger.” Cynthia-Rose nodded in agreement, her gaze firmly attached to said breasts.
Stacie continued, “And on that note, it’ll come as a surprise what I drew…”
No one was surprised to see that she had drawn an awfully detailed picture of two people having sex. Chloe stared at the picture before her eyes glazed over as she looked over at Beca, biting her lip and blushing as she was lost in her thoughts.
The other girls soon followed: Cynthia-Rose had drawn a gambling chip; Lily had drawn fire, (Beca shuffled her chair away from the quiet girl); Jessica and Ashley had drawn an arrow that pointed at the other, causing both girls to erupt in a fit of giggles; and Denise had drawn Cynthia-Rose.
Aubrey placed a hand on her forehead, knowing that this was not going the way she had planned. She cringed as she realised there was still one more person who hadn’t gone.
Sharing an exasperated look with Chloe, who smiled in return, she turned her attention to Beca. The younger girl was shifting in her seat, obviously excited for her turn. Out of the corner of her eye, she saw Chloe staring at Beca with a large smile on her face and held back a sigh. She knew how the redhead felt about the alt-girl, and for her sake, she’d try to play nice.
“Beca? What about…” Aubrey trailed off and wondered why she even bothered. The way Beca was smirking at her was making her feel uneasy, and she heard Chloe give a small gasp. Knowing her best friend was thinking about something inappropriate, she kept her eyes on the shorter girl, wordlessly warning her not to push her buttons.
Beca took that as a challenge. “Well Aubrey, I realise I could have drawn music or puppies or those little Hershey Kisses that someone leaves on my pillow, even though my roommate hates me…” Chloe coughs and guiltily looks away, her cheeks flushing. “Anyway, this is the thing that means most to me…”
The girls lean in to get a closer look at her drawing. Stacie shrieks in delight and bursts into laughter, whilst Cynthia-Rose nods in appreciation and Fat Amy lets out a shrill wolf-whistle.
Chloe, her cheeks having returned to their original colour, looked back at Beca to find her stormy eyes firmly on her and her smirk still in place. Beca’s eyes drifted to her drawing before looking back at Chloe. The redhead followed her gaze and her eyes narrowed in fury at what she saw.
Aubrey looked at the younger girl, obviously confused. “Why have you drawn a naked woman? A very detailed naked woman, I might add?”
The brunette smiled in response, but remained quiet; her gaze still on the redhead.
Fat Amy let out a boisterous chuckle, “Its clear that our small hobbit is a lady lover! And she’s very clearly showing her appreciation of the female body!”
Chloe could feel her stomach tighten in jealousy and her hands clenched into fists. Who was the woman Beca had drawn?
Lily silently observed the drawing and muttered something under her breath.
Stacie, who was closest to her, had heard what she asked and looked back at Beca’s drawing in shock. “Is that woman… in the shower? Hang on! That isn’t a dirty fantasy… that’s a dirty memory!!” The seductive brunette looked immensely proud of her deduction.
Chloe, however, choked on her breath, her cheeks burning brighter than before. She caught the brunette’s eye once more and saw Beca give her a subtle once-over and a wink.
“Yup! And what’s even better, in the corner of this page, I’ve written the opening notes to my favourite song… Titanium. The song really builds, if you know what I mean.”
Chloe’s heart pounded ferociously in her chest. They need to talk… like yesterday.
Closing her eyes and placing her face in her hands, Aubrey decided to call off practice. She had a headache, and now thanks to Beca’s visual, she wanted to throw up too. She turned to Chloe and was confused to see that she was no longer standing there. In fact, she had grabbed Beca by the hand and was dragging her out of the auditorium…
This one is going to be so fluff-thirsty, I’m patenting that as a legit word as of right now
Zen probably puts a lot of effort into knowing everything about you so that he can make sure you’re always happy
But he absolutely makes cute robot mistakes sometimes
“Is this a delicacy to your liking?”
“That is a bar of soap, Zenny”
Imagine his delight when you ask him to teach you how to meditate, happy little hand claps and “it would be my pleasure!”
Cute ‘n’ sassy Zenyatta over little things:
“To find peace, you must first find the orb you stole from me this morning”
“True self is without any more ice cream”
“I dreamt I was being carried around by you, for once”
He doesn’t mean any of it though
He claims not to get flustered or embarrassed but if you kiss him on the cheek he definitely wavers for a second
He will not juggle, but he will for you
He’s surprisingly good at it
I bet he likes to watch documentaries or cute movies about animals and stuff, he will absolutely make a blanket pile for you both to chill on and would make you hot chocolate instinctively
If you’re cold he can warm himself up and embrAcE you like you’re the damn IRIS
EIGHT ARMED HUGS
Seriously, why is Zenny so good to hug!?
He would make you your own sweet robe for meditation purposes, what a bean
Imagine him ruffling your hair as he walks (floats(?)) past just to see you kind of embarrassed in front of the others
You tell him not to but he can’t take your complacency seriously, and you can’t ever be angry at him
Zenny is so soft and pure and wholesome that it makes me weak I just want ethereal omnic hugs and supportive words
