So late at night I was thinking about Lance, as one does, and I wondered…how much does the group know about Lance, really?
Because I realized that all of his most personal moments were by himself or with one other person and came just before something major happened so no one really had time to reflect on it.
Does everyone know how homesick Lance is? When everyone else–particularly Keith and Pidge–were having it out about home and families, Lance had already excused himself and was having a moment with Coran. Then the castle got blown up and Lance was injured, having shielded Coran from the blast. Coran never had time to talk about any of it; he and Hunk were in a pod to the Balmera before their moment could be spoken of. Did they ever revisit it? Did the group realize or have the time to learn that Lance had saved Coran, or did they just assume he got caught up in the blast by coincidence?
Did Keith ever mention that it was Lance’s plan that got their job done or was he distracted by “could I be Galra” thoughts?
Does anyone know that the reason Lance got stuck in the airlock was because he thought he heard Coran calling for help? Keith just found him there, and we never saw Lance telling him how it had happened. Was it ever brought up again?
When he has cool moments, does the team remember? Do they think about it? Shiro and Pidge saw him take that amazing shot, but Shiro is gone now. Does Pidge ever mention it? Does she ever think about how he stepped in for her back at the Garrison? Does Hunk think about that? If they do think about it, do they assume that Lance sees it, too?
Do they understand that he’s constantly willing to put his life on the line for people he’s never even known? That even though he’s sad and lonely and wants to go home, he keeps that inside and puts on a brave face so he can keep doing his part to save the universe? Even though he also thinks he’s not really contributing that much?
Does the group grasp how selfless and brave Lance is; do they see how little he thinks of himself; do they ever see what we’ve been seeing all along or have they just been getting tiny bits and pieces of the big picture that is Lance this entire time?
and immediately cuts to the team with Keith making the saddest face
and he gets so impatient about Lance being in the the pod that he starts tapping the glass and annoying everyone else asking when Lance is gonna be okay
and then has this disappointed and worried look when he realises he has to keep waiting
and then Lance gets out of the pod and we get these faces
just look at that soft happy surprised keith
and then Lance flirts with Allura and happy Keith turns into grumpy jealous Keith
and in the next scene Lance is eating and Keith is literally sitting on the table watching him
and gets annoyed when Lance says he did nothing to help
and then we get these fucking devastated faces when Lance says he doesn’t remember any of what Keith did
they had a bonding moment, he cradled him in his arms
and then we have the castle landing on a moon that is literally just a big bi flag. like that is it, the moon is a bi pride moon, look at this shit
and we have Lance flirting with Nyma while Keith makes this face
and then he switches to unimpressed mode
and then we have Lance getting frazzled when Nyma suggests she go for a ride with Keith
and then rainbow on bi moon
followed immediately by keith just chilling and smiling with Rolo and definitely not being super super gay right after the pride flag was flashed up on screen
and then we have the sequence where Keith gets Lance’s lion back and this triumphant face
morphs into this soft, soft expression the second he says Lance’s name
and then they’re both just so soft (and Lance is making up the blue part of the bi flag rn)
and then this wonderful flirting
and “I thought we bonded” over a shot of another rainbow with Lance and Keith noticeably being the only Paladins off-screen
And now for Season 2 Episode 6 where Keith doesn’t speak until Lance says this
and when we’re shown him here he’s behind Lance glaring
and once attention is on him he looks super vulnerable
and the next shot we get of him he still looks vulnerable as heck but Lance has moved over to stand beside him
and then he does the thing where he explains his tagline use to Keith before Keith has to ask what he’s talking about
and then we have our token gay keith moment when keith cradles allura in his arms and has zero reaction to it even when she is flustered and blushing - I get the impression he wouldn’t devastated if she forgot about it…
and then we have Lance looking real upset when he realises Allura and Lance have gone off together (which parallels nicely with his reaction to Nyma suggesting Keith take her for a ride)
and then we have the moment when Keith is back in the red lion and he helps the others and he’s got this triumphant face
and then Lance starts talking and he goes all soft (kinda like he did when he started talking to lance in s1e6)
and then Lance gets this look and asks if Keith and Allura are an item
and Keith’s reaction is to let his expression get even softer
LOOK AT THIS SHIT
the softest fondest keith and he is so happy Lance just asked if he was single
and then switches back to this when Hunk starts talking instead
and okay this episode doesn’t have as much Klance as s1e6 but then we have
SEASON 3 EPISODE 6
and holy fucking shit guys
which opens with Lance looking a little bi flag-ish again
with the blue suit and the red gun and the purple lighting on him and the gun and the everything
anyone else think maybe they kept their original suit colours just so lance could look a little more bi from now on?
and he’s got his eye on the targets
and he tells the “team” he’s gonna cover them but immediately brings his scope over to just one team member… *coughs*
and he just, y’know, follows keith for a while and watches him… instead of watching the enemy or any of his other teammates…
and then like two scenes later we have Lance’s “holy shit I’m bi” look and him flirting with Shiro (kinda)
and then we get multiple shots for the rest of this scene of Keith just glaring at Lance and looking thoroughly unimpressed (like he was when Lance flirted with Nyma… and Allura…)
and the very next scene starts with Keith still looking pissed
and standing in front of his door like this when someone knocks on it, like he’s really not up for this shit right now
and then the door opens and it’s this vulnerable looking Lance
and Keith just immediately steps aside and lets go of that “I’m gonna fight anyone who dares to talk to me right now” stance
and Lance says he wants to talk about something and Keith looks so worried and then happy that he trusts him and tries to keep the atmosphere light for poor sad looking Lance
and then Lance says it’s because he’s the leader now and Keith’s expression just drops, he eyebrows literally just droop right there and then
and he gets all dejected like he shouldn’t have gotten his hopes up about Lance actually trusting him and thinking they’re close
but then Lance looks so vulnerable and tired and sad and Keith just looks so worried and soft
and he does his best to comfort and reassure him
and when Lance goes to leave he still looks super sad and dejected and Keith calls him back in such a romantic trope kinda way
and then he’s so soft and gentle and smiling and fond and jokes with him to try to lift his spirits
and Lance clearly appreciates it and look at this soft fond look he gets in return
and in the very next scene, they need to take the lions out, only like Lance said there are six paladins and only five lions, but Keith knows that Lance thinks he’s the one who will end up with no lion so before anyone else even has a chance to say anything, Keith voluntarily gives up the black lion and opts to stay at the castle so Lance won’t have to give up Red
and then when they’re on the Galra ship we have Keith looking to Lance when he’s deciding to go off on his own, and Lance agreeing with Shiro that Keith needs to stick with the rest of them while looking very worried about Keith
and then we have the fight with Lotor’s generals where Lance is bowled over by the force of a shot and Keith is sprinting to his aid before he even hits the ground
and right after that we get Lance saving Keith’s ass when he’s caught off guard and almost gets hit right in the face
he’s got you buddy
and then keith is so busy giving the softest of smiles to lance that he forgets he’s mid-battle and lets one galra general run by him and is almost blindsided by another one
anyway this post has ended up waaaaay longer than I was expecting considering I’m only talking about klance moments in THREE EPISODES but basically the point is that every episode 6 so far has been blessed and full of klance goodness and I think that season 6 is where we’ll get some canon klance and season 6 episode 6 will probably be beautiful if these are anything to go by
this has been a uh… a PSA I guess… that was… really far too long I am so sorry
but like… if there’s this much klance in three episodes alone then like… I dunno why anyone thinks it wont be canon at this point
i dreamed of a world without you, where i was emptied like a fish, my skin unfamiliar when it was untouched by you. i dreamed of a world where we were not one, where you never kissed me by accident and then again on purpose, where the two of us never got caught up in the moment. was i happier there? was i happier not knowing the ending? all i know is that it was a late morning, and i woke up sweating, and i live in the world where i cannot kiss you anymore. it’s okay, almost. i’m figuring out how that works. it’s just that i drank coffee. it’s just i don’t want to go to bed. it’s just i don’t know how to be better off without you. i can’t get you out of my head.
I reclined in my chair, enjoying the hot sun on my face. The waves before me crashed with rhythmic purpose and I felt myself growing sleepy. Seagulls cawed overhead. The air smelled of salt and sun tan lotion. Things were good.
This was a Request for an Anon. They wanted a Story where Bruce Cheated and the Bat Boys react. If you have request go ahead and make one! Also Let me know if you want a part two. (UPDATE: Lots of people have asked for a Part 2 so i’ll start working on it soon ^_^) part two: here
weren’t much of a wine drinker, not much of a drinker period in all actuality.
When you did drink you preferred the sweetness of a strawberry margarita that
masked the taste of alcohol. However, right now, as the slightly bitter liquid
pooled to the back of your throat, you couldn’t imagine a better tasting drink.
on the large black marble kitchen counter, you swung your legs with childlike
glee as the world around you suddenly started to feel a little hazy. Patting at
your cheek with a sweater covered hand to wipe away some tear stains you filled
up your glass of Zinfandel with the other.

into the kitchen. He looks at your form sitting on the counter with wide
worried eyes but you can’t be bothered to give him more than a half hearted
crooked smile as you knock back half of your glass.

intoxicated state that you’re in and he doesn’t want to startle you.

usually the only time I get to be alone.”

think I should, you aren’t exactly innocent either, are you?”

through his eyes. “Why don’t I fix you some coffee and breakfast to help sober

must feel, he is the one who raised Bruce afterall.

of the counter. Your sock covered feet hit the floor with slight pat and you
walk over to the sink to put your glass down. “When breakfast is done, I’ll be
in the bedroom.”
around in your bed and wiping away ever falling tears all day wasn’t something
that you thought you’d be doing when you married Bruce Wayne. However, at the
moment you couldn’t think of what else to do. You needed to get your emotions
out and rest at the same time. Damian would be home from school soon and the
rest of the boys would be home for dinner.
familiar roar of an engine caught your attention and you felt your body tense.
Anticipation and anxiety wracked your form as you waited for the familiar
footsteps of your husband to enter the room.
would you say to him? Could you even bring it up? What if what you saw only
happened in a dream? He would never actually hurt you this way would he? He had
promised to love and cherish only you after all. How could Batman of all people
break his promise?
your thoughts, you’d barely heard the door to your bedroom open. He doesn’t say
anything when he walks through the door. You hear the rustle of clothing and
assume that he is removing his suit jacket. You assumptions were proved correct
when he comes to sit on the side of your shared bed and pulls the blanket from
over your head. He reveales himself to be in his white shirt and black suit
blue eyes scan over your form worriedly as he rubs a large thumb on your
forehead. You have to bite your tongue to prevent sharp words from spewing out
of you and rejecting his sweetness.

shrugs it off to whatever sickness it was that was bothering you.
stands from the bed and moves over to the closet to change into something more
comfortable. You take the opportunity to sit up and push your body up against
the headboard and you watch him. As he pulls the shirt off his body you can see
every scar and bruise that he’d accrued recently, even the ones on his neck
that hadn’t placed there forcefully.

slick and tighten with nerves but your belly is full of rage.

blanching of his face causes you to get angrier for some reason. You stand up
quickly from your position on the bed and instinctively he holds a hand out in
attempt to calm you.

would be much better if it happened then because I could just leave. But now I

wipe them away. “Were you going to stop sleeping with her? Or were you just
waiting to get caught?”

honesty and the frown that’s pulling at your lips is almost painful. “Selina

was almost as if you could hear your heart breaking and you couldn’t stop the
sob that ran its way through your throat. You slapped a hand over your mouth in
shame and turned away from him as the tears freely flowed down your face.
Almost instinctively at your crying from, Bruce was at your side with a large
hand on your back trying to comfort you.
Touch. Me!” You snap slapping his hands away. “Why did you marry me? If
you felt that way you should have been with her!”

you were planning on cheating on me anyway.”
he shakes his head.
I’ve wasted all of this time on you,” you say moving around him looking for a
pair of shoes to slip on and your keys. “All of the things that I could have
done, places I could have gone, and people who would have loved me, I
gave it up for you. I put my career on hold so I could help you. So that
Wayne Enterprises would have someone there while you rested. So that our
son could have something other than mask to raise him. But you couldn’t do one
thing for me? You couldn’t say no one time for me?”

this situation better.
you’ve collected your shoes, bag, and care keys, you let out a sigh,”I had
really hoped that once you came home that there would be some way that you
could deny this and I would have believed you. That I’d been slipped some sort
of drug and had been hallucinating the things that I saw, but I was too
hopeful.” You wipe at your eyes. “The worse part about it is that you’ve
trapped me, Bruce. What can I do? My life has become our kids, your company,
and your mission. That has been my job since we’ve gotten married. I lived for

was the first to arrive home. Bruce watched from the bedroom window as he and
Alfred made their way into the house. What was he supposed to tell him? Not
just Damian, but everyone. That he’d driven their mother away and he didn’t
know when she’d be back? That he’d ruined their family? No, never that. How
could he break his children even more than they already had been.
a frown, Bruce locked the door to the bedroom and sat in silence and darkness.
If he’d gone to the cave he would have opened himself up to questions. In here,
for the moment, he was safe. No one would bother him here.
Alfred, where is mom?” Dick asked, taking a drink of his water.
I would like to know as well, Pennyworth. It’s not often that you come and pick
me up from school,” Damian started pushing around some of his food with his

watches from a distance and takes in the state of the room. On the occasions
that he’d have nightmares, he usually finds himself in his parents bed snuggled
against his mother in the expansive bed as she protected him from the dreams.
He probably knew better than anyone what their bedroom was supposed to look
like.He noted that the dresser was suspiciously bare of his mother’s jewelry
boxes and perfume bottles. He casts a quick glance at Jason who seems to
realize that something is off about the room.

At the moment that suited you just fine. The wide open space of the penthouse

Time for some more whump! It’s Day Two- Hypothermia!
Lance and Keith (read: klance) go to an ice planet.
why do i only ever hurt lance
“Figures,” Lance grumbled.
“Stereotypical ice planet. Why couldn’t the rebels have lived on, I
don’t know, a tropical island? The entire known universe and we can’t
stumble across some beach residents in need of rescue?”
“Lance,” Shiro’s disapproving
voice sounded over the coms. “The two of them gave me their only
ship. Which means we’re helping them. They’re part of a freedom
fighter organization, maybe they can help us.”
“Yeah, okay, but why do I
have to be the one that gets sent down here? I’m from Cuba! This is
way, way below comfortable temperatures for me.”
“Quit whining,” Keith snapped,
glaring at Lance over his shoulder. “Our armor’s designed to keep
us warm, and this is below comfortable for anyone. And pick up
Lance rolled his eyes, but jogged to
catch up to him.
“Sorry, Lance, but the red lion is
the best at withstanding extreme temperatures. And it’s smaller, and
faster than the other lions, so it can better navigate the terrain,”
“Wish I had help navigating the
terrain now,” Lance muttered under his breath. The two of them were
currently struggling through over a foot of snow. “And that doesn’t
explain why I had to bring Keith with me.”
“Because going on solo missions to
unknown locations is how you get killed,” Pidge pointed out. “Star
Wars? Hoth? Luke almost getting annihilated by the abominable
snowman? Any of that ring a bell?”
“Quiznaking ice planets. Why are we
out of the lion anyway, Shiro? Red’s warm. Do you want us to
freeze to death and then have to hide inside the body of a space
camel?” Lance’s voice was dripping with sarcasm.
“What the hell are you
“Star Wars, Keith. Remind me to
marathon it with you when we get back to Earth. My niece loves those
movies, and she’ll eat all the popcorn, but it’s worth it. Trust me.”
“Would you two take this mission
seriously?” Shiro asked. Lance could practically see him rubbing
his temples exhaustedly. “I know it’s not exactly high-stakes
adventure, but these guys saved my life. You’re not going to go
prancing around the planet in your lion and accidentally destroy
“Prancing? Shiro, I don’t
“Lance, look,” Keith interrupted
him and pointed out towards a large stretch of ice before them. It
would’ve been a lake, had the planet not had such low temperatures.
“Pidge, is that the direction we need to go?”
“Yep,” she told them. “The
hideout’s not far from the opposite side.”
Keith sighed. “We’ll have to go
“Woah, what? Keith, that lake is
huge! It’d be so much easier to walk straight across,” Lance
protested. “I’m not about to freeze to death while we take the
“In case you hadn’t noticed, that’s
ice, dumbass. If it can’t support our weight and breaks then
we really could freeze to death! That water’s gotta be a lot
worse than this.”
“I’m not an idiot, Keith, I know
that. Pidge, if I send you a scan can you see if it’ll support us?”
Lance asked. Pidge made a noise of affirmation, and Lance used his
armor’s scanner to send an analysis of the ice to her.
“It looks pretty thick,” she
mused. “I wouldn’t jump up and down or start hacking at it with
your bayards if I were you, but you’ll be able to walk across.”
“See?” Lance smirked at
him. “What’d I tell you? It’s fine.”
“Shouldn’t we, I don’t know, check
the lake? What if there’s a… space octopus in there, or something?
Or a shark? I mean, they wouldn’t normally live in lakes, but this
isn’t Earth so who knows? Are space alligators a thing?” Hunk spoke
so fast it was almost difficult to understand.
“Hunk, you’re rambling,” Lance
observed with a fond smile. “But don’t worry. The top of the lake
is frozen, so they wouldn’t be able to breathe, right? Let alone get
to us. If it makes you feel better, I’ll do a full scan of the lake.”
“Nope. No animals down there,”
Pidge confirmed a few moments later. “Now would you two hurry up
“I still have a really bad feeling
about this,” Keith mumbled.
Lance turned towards him with a grin.
“We are so watching Star Wars together. In fact, we should
see if they have it at the space mall. But sorry, Keith, if you want
to go the long way, be my guest. I’m not going to wait any longer
than I have to.”
“He really is the true pilot of
Red,” Pidge sounded as if she was trying to repress a laugh.
“Impatient as all hell.”
“Hey!” Keith and Lance
exclaimed at the same time.
Pidge snorted. “Just get going
Lance wasted no time in starting out
across the lake. He was several paces ahead of Keith, who still
hesitated to step out onto it. As he was about to continue forward,
Keith stopped in his tracks. He could swear he saw something dark
moving below the ice, but Pidge had scanned the lake for life, hadn’t
she? It must just be his imagination. He started forward again, but
just then the ground shook, and the ice in front of Lance exploded.
He let out a strangled yelp, stumbling
away from whatever had just burst out of the lake. Keith could hear
the frantic voices of the others in his ears, but it all descended
into white noise as he saw the vine that had broken through the ice
wrap around Lance’s legs.
He rushed forward, but it was already
too late. Keith watched as Lance was dragged into the hole made by
the creature, and plunged into the freezing lake.
The water was murky, and dark. Lance
could barely see, all he knew was that something was dragging him
further and further down into the depths. He didn’t have time to
activate his helmet properly before water was rushing into his lungs.
He felt the grip of whatever held him
tightening on his legs, and though he tried to kick he couldn’t break
Lance forced himself not to panic.
Panicking wouldn’t help him. So he collected his thoughts, summoned
his bayard, and pointed it down. He still couldn’t see anything, but
with luck he’d hit the monster, not himself. He moved his finger to
the trigger, aimed for what he hoped wasn’t his leg, and fired.
Judging by the shriek of pain and how
the hold on him loosened, Lance guessed the laser met its mark. He
kicked upwards immediately, swimming quickly to the surface. However,
with limited eyesight and dwindling oxygen, his hands met nothing but
ice. Panic started to overtake him again as he desperately scrambled
to find the hole which he’d fallen into.
Lance was just starting to give up
hope completely when suddenly a hand snagged around his wrist and
yanked him to the side, and up to the surface.
Lance sucked in a breath, coughing the
water out of his lungs as he collapsed onto the ice. His vision was
foggy around the edges, but he could see well enough to notice Keith
kneeling over him, breathing heavily.
“Are you okay?” he demanded, hands
hovering over Lance’s form. “Are you hurt?”
“What—” Lance coughed again.
“What was that… that thing?”
“I… I didn’t scan for plants,”
Pidge told him apologetically. “In my defense, I had no idea there
would be some crazy strong… Venus flytrap-ish monster living here.”
“Now will you listen to me
when I tell you something’s a bad idea?” Keith asked, sounding way
to relieved to actually come off as angry.
Lance gave him a shaky smile. “I
c-could ask you the… the same, S-samurai.”. Keith tensed
“Why’s he talking like that?” he
asked. “He’s… breathing weird, too. And shivering. Pidge, what—”
“Keith. Scan. Now.” Pidge’s voice
was suddenly alert, and when Keith complied, she cursed.
“Hypothermia. I should’ve guessed. Keith, get him back to the
castle. He should be fine, but he needs a pod. Allura and I will come
back to the planet in Blue later.”
Keith nodded, picking Lance up in his
arms as if he weighed nothing at all, before rushing towards Red.
“Hang on, Lance. You’re gonna be fine.”
“You.. you were r-right,” Lance
admitted around chattering teeth. “That was a… very b-bad idea.”
His eyes started to slide shut.
“Wh— no, Lance, you have to stay
awake. C'mon, keep your eyes open. We’re almost there.”
“’M sorry, Keith, b-but it’s… it’s
freezing, and you’re r-r-really w-warm,” Lance mumbled, closing his
eyes and leaning his head on Keith’s shoulder. “I think… I’ll
just take a little n-nap.”
“Lance, no, you’ve got to—”
Keith started insistently, but Lance had already passed out in his
Lance fell unceremoniously out of the
healing pod, but was luckily caught before he collapsed onto the
floor. He looked up to meet Keith’s dark eyes, and promptly groaned.
“So, I guess we had another bonding moment.”
Keith bristled. “That’s all you have
to say? Not ‘thank you for saving my life?’ After your stupid
decision-making skills got you put in a pod for the… how many times
has it been now?”
Lance ignored him. “Where are the
“None of them wanted to stay
overnight, because, again, you’ve been in this pod way too many
times,” Keith told him, unsure if he should point out that Lance
had made no move to step back, so Keith was still supporting the
entirety of his weight.
“And yet you stayed,” Lance
grinned. “Guess I should probably start listening to you, huh?”
Lance’s smile turned quickly into a
smirk. “Well, that’s too bad, since we both know that’s never going
Keith scowled, prepared to drop Lance
onto the floor. He would have to, if Lance hadn’t leaned forward at
that exact moment and kissed him.
It didn’t last long, but Keith was
blushing furiously, anyway. It was nice to see that Lance looked a
little flustered, too, though.
“Thanks,” Lance said softly. “For
saving my life.”
“Um,” Keith started, brain still
trying to understand what was going on. “Did you just— you and I—
is this— what?”
Lance laughed, finally stepping back
from Keith and turning to walk out the door. “I’m going to go get
some food goo, if you’d care to join me.”
Keith watched him go, and stammered
out a few more incoherent sentences before rushing after him.
‘Do you not fucking speak english?!’ You screamed over at Bucky. The two of you were meant to meet for dinner at one of your favourite restaurants after you had finished work. You booked a table there for 6, giving you enough time to get home and change before you got there.
‘Yes, I speak over 30 languages’ Bucky yelled back at you, taking off the gym clothes he wore to meet Steve earlier that day. According to your boyfriend you had said seven so he thought he could finish at the gym at 6;30 giving him half an hour to get ready. Only when he got home you sitting on the bed, all dressed up and fuming from having to wait for him.
‘Ok. I’ll say what I said to you yesterday is Spanish. Seis!’ your hair was pinned back and styled so you took it out, facing the mirror but you could still see his reflection.
‘You said seven!’ He was now taking off his hoodie and shirt. You were so mad at him but he looked so good.
‘I said six!’
‘No, you didn’t’
‘Why would I book a table at six then tell you seven? What, you think I want to spend quality time with my glass of fucking water’ you finally turned to look him in the eye, but he couldn’t look at you. For a second you weren’t sure if he was angry or upset. But then you heard the metallic whirring of his arm, it was very distinctive when he was angry
‘I’m not doing this right now’ He turned away from you, his hands in the air. Then stormed off into the bathroom, slamming the door hard behind him.
SUMMARY: "Two whole months of free laundry in exchange for two weeks of being my fake boyfriend. Deal?” Keith hesitated for a moment. Was this really worth it? Hardly. Lance was an asshole, and he wasn’t sure what fake dating would entail. But, free laundry was free laundry, right? “Alright, it’s a deal.”Or: Lance makes the mistake of telling his Mom he has a boyfriend coming home with him for Christmas. Keith makes the mistake of agreeing to be Lance’s ‘fake boyfriend’.
SUMMARY: Keith pinches his eyes shut, slamming the book down again and swiveling to face Lance. “Oh my god,” he groans, standing up and crossing the two feet between them before Lance can get out a word. He grabs Lance’s face between his hands (perhaps a bit rougher than needed, but hey, he’s always wanted to slap Lance’s stupid face) and the last thing he sees is an expression of pure surprise before he leans down and presses his lips against Lance’s.It’s a peck, and it lasts a second, and then it’s over. Keith leans back, releasing Lance’s face, and hisses, “There.”
SUMMARY: A journey through Keith’s eyes as we explore the begining of he and Lance’s relationship; wherein he learns about sex, trust, and how falling in love can work for your mental illness and not just against it. Also, they both almost die in that huge planet-wide conspiracy Keith gets them caught up in.
SUMMARY: “You give off the obnoxious popular vibe. The mullet, and the rap sheet, and—the fingerless gloves,” Lance replies, and barrels on before Keith can take it the wrong way. “I’m so handsome, my name’s Keith and I’m a pilot.”“That sounds more like a compliment than an insult,” Keith says slowly, a disdainful quirk to his eyebrows that only spurs Lance on. He tilts his head a bit, his bangs shadowing his face, like he’s assessing a particularly impossible physics problem. “And I don’t like that voice you’re using.”
“Hii gurl I have an idea for a Suga fluff or smut depends on how you feel like making it and I don’t know if you’ve ever made anything similar but could you do one where Yoongi’s y/n’s (who’s quite younger) brother’s friend and things happen between them, please? :3″
“Limerence; the state of being infatuated with another person”. I decided to make it slightly angsty (whoops) I guess that just makes the sex better. I didn’t get the part about being younger– I’m guessing it’s the reader that is younger, so…. Yeah.. I made the age difference 9 years (another whoops). I hope you like it, anon! 3.2k Words
Pairing: Pure-blood!Min Yoongi x Half-blood!Reader

P.S. I made the reader/oc half-blood noble, so it’s not just the Korean people. ;)) I want it to be internationally compatible.
The day that you were born was probably one of the most joyful days for your father and 8-year-old brother, maybe not for your step mother – considering he had sex with a concubine to have you. You were the first half-blood of the family, and even though your father loved you dearly, there was still a small difference in the way he treated you.
Whilst your brother was out learning archery and literature, you were sat at home, learning how to look like you were radiant enough for being part of the nobility. Unfortunately, you were not exactly fit for the beauty standards, so you had to try harder to look appealing to outsiders. You weren’t ugly – you were just not traditionally beautiful.
You had an exotic type of beauty.
That was one of the first things a 25-year-old Min Yoongi noticed about you when you both first met.
Teaser For The Trash Pennywise x Reader I'm Going To Hell For Writing
| So here’s a little preview of the Pennywise x Reader I’m working on. Basically reader escaped Pennywise as a kid, now he’s back to get the one that got away. Reader seduces the clown in the hopes that he’ll spare her life. This is absolute trash. I’m not even kidding. Someone should stop me, honestly.|
The menacing clown hovers over you, breathing heavily and licking his lips.
You know this is it. There’s nowhere to go, and the evil entity that haunted you as a child, is about to finish what he started. He’s been waiting years for this - for the one that got away. There’s no way you’ll talk your way out of it.
The demon growls out your name, slow and gravelly - his teeth turning sharp and gangly, making your eyes well up with tears. Any second those fangs could come down onto your neck, ripping your throat out as you choke on your own blood.
His face is so close to yours - your noses almost touching. In a desperate panic, you wrap a hand around the back of his neck, and lean up touching your lips to his.
The clown pauses - eyes wide with confusion.
You can’t believe you just did that, or even understand why you did. A last second attempt to save your life, perhaps? If anything, at least a way to stall the inevitable.
Your body’s trembling underneath him, just waiting to see what happens.
Pennywise, puts two fingers up to his red painted lips, still looking as shocked as ever.
“Did you just…. Did you just kiss me?”
“Yes.” You nod, swallowing thickly.
He squints down at you in suspicion. “Now why would you go and do a thing like that?” He sneers.
You only have seconds to come up with a response. You better make it good.
“I got caught up in the heat of the moment. You lying on top of me, about to kill me. It’s kinda hot, no?” You manage to fake a smirk.
The clown leans in closer - his nose pressing into your neck and breathes in deep.
“I can smell your fear.” He whispers, grinning widely.
“I can be scared and aroused at the same time, ya know.” This is a hard argument to sell considering your voice is shaking along with your body and it doesn’t look like the clown is buying it.
“What is it that you want?” He whispers - a glint of curiosity in his eye.
You lick your lips, trying your best to look genuinely aroused and not terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought.
“Are you gonna make me say it?” You ask, placing your quivering hand up against the clown’s heaving chest.
“Yes.” He growls.
“Sex.” You reply, pulling Pennywise in closer, till your breasts are pressing into his body.
“Sex?” He repeats - his eyes wide with curiosity.
| I told you it was trash. See you in hell, ficcers|

trigger warnings: bullying, mentions of suicide
“I don’t understand why we had to come here first, why couldn’t we all head to the field and meet there?” Jungkook huffs before throwing himself down on your couch.
Jimin only grins at the younger boy before shoving him playfully, “Yah. Your noona wanted you to stop by it’s the least you could do.”
Jungkook glares at him ruefully before turning to Yoongi, “You got roped in too?”
“Would I ever be around you people of my own free will?” Yoongi grumbles, his arms crossed in a pout but it doesn’t fully reach his eyes when he’s met with Taehyung’s smiling face.
“I brought company! I hope she doesn’t mind.” He smiles, offering Namjoon a seat next to him, he’s only partially startled when Yoongi’s foot stretches out, successfully kicking the chair before the younger boy can steal a sit next to Taehyung.
“Trade seats, I’m sitting closer to these rodents than my designated three feet rule allows.” Yoongi mutters but Taehyung’s heart does weird flip flops in his chest.
“So why are we all here?” Namjoon queries.
“You are all here because I’m doing Hoseok’s official unveiling.” You grin excitedly, jogging out of your bedroom long enough to check if everyone’s present. You frown, “Where’s Nayeon?”
At the exact moment Nayeon comes running in, toting several shopping bags before nearly collapsing on the kitchen table, panting and sweaty.
“Sorry! I’m late! But I’m here… I got caught up at the mall.” She grins sheepishly.
You match her smile for all its worth and almost miss the slightly disgruntled expression Jungkook is sporting. You swallow a sigh but not before sending him a stern look and a promise of addressing the issue later. But for now… for now you had other things to deal with.
You shuffle around with your phone before finding the perfect song and set it on the table, next to your Bluetooth speaker.
“Why are we listening to Sixpence?” Yoongi frowns at your theatrics.
“Have you never watched She’s All That?” You scoff at Yoongi’s blank expression, “If you must know peasant I’m paying tribute to the most iconic makeover unveiling in movie history. Now shut up so he can make his entrance.”
It takes but all of one minute to quiet the groaning room with an angry glare but they can’t help it not when you were so… corny.
“Ladies and Gentlemen,” you begin theatrically, a grin tugging at your lips, “I’d like to present to you the new, not improved but different—Jung Hoseok.”
A pregnant pause followed your declaration and everyone stared expectantly at your bedroom door, but lo and behold no Hoseok was in sight.
“Hoseok you punk there almost at the,” You tapped your foot expectantly, “…. chorus.”
You finish lamely but in your defense Hoseok had finally made his grand entrance from your room and despite having been in there with him for the better part of the day, his transformation was still shocking to you because who knew that underneath all that he was—
“Blonde.” Taehyung says dumbly.
“Hot.” Nayeon grins.
“A work of goddamn art.” You agree.
Hoseok fidgets under close scrutiny but it doesn’t take away from the overall presentation you had cooked up on a small budget. It wasn’t much and you hadn’t been expecting Hoseok of all people to be able to make a black t shirt and some light wash jeans look like it came off the cover of a goddamn GQ spread but it worked. A lot of it had to do with the fact that you managed to shove his fat head under a dad cap and tweeze those godforsaken eyebrows. He wouldn’t go as far as to let you fill them in but he was at last wearing a moisturizer today.
Baby steps, you reminded yourself.
“Not bad.” Jimin muses before turning to you, “It’s actually really not bad, Jesus Christ what are you a fucking magician?”
You take a grandiose bow before turning to the silent participants in the room, cocking a brow at them and reaping Hoseok’s praise as though it were your own.
“You look completely unrecognizable.” Yoongi says, muttering a curse when Taehyung shoulder bumps him, “It’s a good thing, okay?”
“So you look like this,” Namjoon began slowly, “underneath all that… gross… and you choose to hide it because?”
“You’re all a bunch fucking critics, aren’t you?” Hoseok seethes.
You roll your eyes at him before turning to Jimin, “Are we all set to go?”
“Nayeon’s changing and she’ll be out.” Jungkook says closing her bedroom room, and you raised a brow at that because you hadn’t realized he had followed Nayeon into her room.
You had so many questions.
All of which took a backseat to the current stud sitting next to you so you shrugged and began collecting your purse to leave.
“You’re glaring.” Yoongi notes lightly as he pushes you further down the bench room for himself.
You school your features but not well enough that Yoongi doesn’t pick up on the snarl you barely bite back. It only takes a moment under close scrutiny for you to be turning to take it out on the nearest victim—it just so happened to be Jungkook.
“Close your fucking legs, Jeon do you think you own the entire goddamn bench?” You growl, glancing at his legs that were spread so wide his thigh was tucked firmly against your own.
“What are you even doing in the dug out? Go sit with the rest of the crowd.” He rolls his eyes at your outburst but obliges, turning to talk to Jimin and ignore you.
“Is there a reason you’re so testy?” Yoongi queries, raising both hands when you pin him with a look, “Not that you need one. I’m all for bitching at unsuspecting victims.”
“I’m not bitchi—you know what, never mind.” You scowl and Yoongi scoffs.
“Is it because you’re boyfriends garnering so much unwarranted attention?” Yoongi hums, “Because if you didn’t want that to happen then you shouldn’t have done such a good job. Though even I wasn’t expecting that kind of transformation from him of all people, Jesus.”
“He’s not my boyfriend.” You snap, arms crossed.
“Is that why you’re mad?” Yoongi sing-songs.
You open your mouth to let out a biting remark but the words get caught in your throat when the sixth girl today in the span of an hour, approaches Hoseok, sat perched in the bed of Jeon’s truck with Taehyung and Namjoon. You had been sitting there too but after the first three girls approached him, one even using you under the guise of friendship when you took like one class with her sophomore year, you had been out quicker than Ellen Degeneres during Pride.
You really should be over there coaching him, because all things considered, he was still a nincompoop when it came to girls – unable to look them in the eye or not stammer, unless of course the girl was you then he’d tell you to fuck right off and stop irritating him.
“I’m not mad,” you say, plastering on a fake smile and grateful for the sunglasses you had donned after his comment because at least he couldn’t see the the spiteful glare you were sporting.
And you ask yourself, not for the first time today why you’re feeling so… weird.
“Okay, I lied, I am mad.” You relent finally, “I’m mad because I did all of that and the brat still has the nerve to feel insecure as though he doesn’t look like the poster boy for orthodontists weekly.”
You said it through barely clenched teeth, praying you did a good enough job of not wearing your feelings on your forehead like an idiot. But if Yoongi noticed he either didn’t say anything or didn’t care enough to mention it. (It was more likely the latter).
“Speaking of which, here comes the cheese grater now.” Yoongi snickers at his own joke and true to his word a very flushed and frazzled Hoseok is making his way over to you.
You frown at his expression before asking the obvious.
“Are you okay?”
“No. I’m not okay.” He hisses, before glancing down at Jungkook’s thigh which had found its way back to yours.
Why the hell wouldn’t he close his goddamn legs?
“What’s your deal?” You nod and watch as Hoseok exhales warily.
“Is this seat taken? No? Perfect!” He grimaces, shoving Jungkook’s legs closed before squeezing in between the two of you.
Jungkook glares at the older boy for a brief second before continuing his conversation with Jimin.
“I can’t do this.” Hoseok says harshly, pinning you with a scowl. Your reaction is delayed when you get caught up in his eyes, brows slashed down angrily and no longer playing the victim to a horribly overgrown fringe.
He had a really nice fucking forehead.
“D-do what?” You clear your throat, going to sip from your beer.
“This. Talking to them!” He says vehemently, gesturing to a pair of scantily clad girls leaning against the truck, he waves weakly at them when they brandish a grin in his direction. “I’m not a social person and they… are very forward?”
“Forward?” You squint your eyes at him with a frown.
“One of them grazed my dick when they put there hand on my thigh.” He hissed.
“What?” You don’t realize your shouting until your lips already curled and Yoongi is cocking a brow at you. You clear your throat before averting your gaze, “I mean… that’s so rude?”
“Anyway, let me stay here,” he huffs out, “You’re really good at scaring people off.”
“Hey!” You cry out indignantly before narrowing your eyes at him, “No offense my guy but wasn’t that the whole point of this entire thing? Getting you laid? Those girls want you to fuck them. I can tell!”
“Okay that’s great but I’m nervous and I… I know as soon as I open my mouth it’s game over. They’ll ask me to eat their pussy and I’ll start nervously spewing out Overwatch facts.” He groans, “Besides! Aren’t you supposed to be helping me?”
“What the hell have I been doing the past two weeks? Twiddling my thumbs?” You whisper harshly, glancing over your shoulder to see if the boys had heard anything. But they all carry on obliviously save for Jungkook who hasn’t stopped glaring at you since you left the apartment.
“Look I’m just not ready for this yet,” Hoseok sighs, “I don’t think I have the confidence to really… talk to girls yet, much less go on a date or… fuck them. Is it okay if I just hang out with you for today?”
You pinch the bridge of your nose in exasperation but it’s no use feigning disappointment when a small voice in the back of your head is rejoicing at the prospect of having Hoseok to yourself.
Quit being weird, you chastise yourself.
“I won’t pressure you into anything you don’t want to do, you know that.” You sigh, “So if you want to sit here and drink cheap beer while listen to Jeon make fart jokes then by all means.”
Hoseok doesn’t say anything but he does visibly relax which is a good sign and for some reason you find yourself grasping at a conversation.
“So ugh,” you clear your throat, “how’s being a TA?”
Hoseok blinks at you as though he’s only just realized your talking to him before shrugging, “It’s fine I guess. I’m surrounded by idiots 24/7 but I at least get paid for it so I can’t complain.”
“And what you’re not surrounded by idiots when you hang out with us?” You snort.
“It’s different though,” Hoseok murmurs, nursing a beer. He squints his eyes thoughtfully, “Believe it or not I actually enjoy your guys’ company.”
“Well shit, I hope so – here I was thinking we were like friends and stuff.” You snort.
“Are we though?” He murmurs thoughtfully. “I mean, I’m not just inexperienced with girls. I’m sure it’s obvious but I don’t exactly draw in a lot of fans what with being you know, me and all.”
“Will you stop doing that?” You asked, suddenly annoyed at his self deprecating tone.
Hoseok jumps, startled by your outburst, “Doing what?”
“Being all like down on yourself and shit. It’s like pathetic,” you grumble defiantly, “You don’t need fans in life or people who’ll kiss your ass—you’re not an idol. Real people need real friends to make fun of them and like talk shit to them and stuff, you know?”
“Why are you always doing that?” He implores and you raise your gaze to his, only his expression isn’t one of defense, only pure curiosity lies in wait.
“The same reason you gave me that whole spiel about not giving up on life and shit.” You say, “Because friends talk shit to you and about you but they don’t kick you when you’re down and it really, really bugs me to hear you say stuff like that about yourself, yeah? Leave that to me.”
Hoseok stares at you for a beat too long, taking in the angry slant of your eyebrows and the way your lips purse in respite.
Hoseok’s cheeks burn red hot, tears pricking at his eyes and despite how they beg to be freed from their confines, to run wet tracks down his cheeks he doesn’t let them. His lips purse in an attempt to choke back a sob and he stares down at the linoleum weakly.
“What are you waiting for? Pick them up.” Someone snickers behind him.
He blinks down at his hands questioningly, because what was the point? The hallway seemed to be cloaked in a silence that screamed at him, despite the many people crowding the space.
His books lay scattered around him, and his chest hurt with an agony he was all too familiar with, the sheer overwhelming pity he felt for himself was almost debilitating. He cleared his throat to cover a sniffle, another weak attempt at biting back tears before he’s moving to collect his belongings.
He’s barely on his feet again before they’re being knocked out of his hands with too much force.
A crowd was forming now, and he closes his eyes to try and block out the whispers, the looks of pity because despite how bad everyone felt no one was willing to help. No one ever helped. It was all the same to them, he was there for their entertainment.
And not for the first time, he wondered why.
Why he kept trying. Why he didn’t end it all when he would lay awake at night with a sadness that brought him to his knees. Why he was deemed so unworthy of kindness by people that barely knew him. Why he pushed through when he knew nothing but bruises that pierced deeper than skin and a crippling sadness that only his shower walls would ever hear.
Why, why, why, why me?
Hoseok is too dazed, too caught up with disgust and the need to shed his skin, to vomit a sickness that knew no cure.
His heart hurt.
“I said stop!”
When he looks up again it’s you, the girl from the locker the other day and you’re… crying.
Your eyes are bloodshot and your chest is heaving. He wants to know why. He wants to tell you you’re too pretty, even blubbering, lips quivering. You’re too pretty to cry, too pretty to be on your knees, but he’s overwhelmed. By everything, by the silent on lookers, by the almost painful embarrassment.
He barely realizes you’re shoving books back into his bag for him, before you swipe at your nose and drag him along by the wrist. He doesn’t have the mind to ask questions until you’re out in the courtyard, it’s the middle of classes so it’s empty, save for a few stray butterflies that linger.
His feet hesitate by the fountain and you stumble by the sudden halt, turning to face him inquisitively.
“Why are you always doing that?” He whispers, jerking his hand back from yours.
“D-doing what?” You stammer.
“That. Back there.” He says, jaw clenching, “Why do you keep helping me? Why do you care?”
“Because I’m human,” you say indignantly, “and so are you – not a dog to be made to sit and roll over why don’t you act like it?”
“You think I haven’t tried?” His lip curls in disgust, “What would you know anyway, you’re just some stupid cheerleader, you’re just like the rest of them.”
“Really? Because I didn’t see the rest of them stepping into help you!”
“I didn’t ask for your help!” He yells back.
“You didn’t have to!” You say over him, and tears are rolling down freely, “I helped you because it hurt to see you like that! Maybe everyone else can look away but I can’t! Tell the principle, tell your parents, fuck tell anyone! But don’t… don’t take that.”
And just like that your lip is quivering again, only he doesn’t get a chance to see the tears fall this time because you’re storming off, leaving him there to stare after you.
Hoseok blinks himself back to consciousness when he catches sight of your fingers snapping a hairsbreadth from his face, trying to garner his attention.
“Don’t look now but more of your admirers are headed over.” You say quietly and Hoseok visibly stiffens.
“What do I do?” He whispers harshly.
You bite your lip in concentration, debating the consequences of your action before finally relenting when they neared the dug out. You were a flurry of motion that Hoseok’s sluggish, intoxicated brain couldn’t keep up with – but suddenly you were dropping yourself into his lap, his legs spreading on instinct, you grip his frozen arms until they wrapped around you begrudgingly.
“What are you doing?” He hisses.
“Getting those girls off your back,” you scoff, but you have to crane your neck back to speak to him and he suddenly realizes just how pretty your throat is—why could he never tell before now?
“Hey Hoseok,” one of the girls begins timidly, trying to catch a glimpse of him from in back of your body.
“Uh…. hey hi,” he clears his throat.
“You just left us over there with your friends.” The shorter girl pouts and you roll your eyes.
“Yeah sorry I—”
“He’s kind of busy.” You say brightly, leaning back until your back was pressed to his chest, Hoseok grunts over the unexpected weight. “Did you need something?”
“Oh I… sunbae… sorry,” the tall brunette clears her throat as though she’s just noticed that your sitting dead center on top of Hoseok. You frown when you recognize her from one of your economics courses, “I didn’t realize you… and he… were—”
“For tonight we are.” You shrug, gesturing towards Namjoon, deciding to throw him a bone, “but that guys free over there, I hear he drives a Range Rover, you should chat him up.”
The brunette smiles brightly, if a little bit nervously at you but grips the shorter girls arm, dragging her along but not before she withers you with a narrowed glare. You cock a brow at her audacity before she’s turning around with a huff.
“Sunbae?” Hoseok queries from behind you, and you barely conceal a shiver when you feel how closely he’s speaking to your ear, his breath smells like beer but when you try to pull back his grip tightens around you.
“Yeah,” you say indignantly, “I know I’m not shit in the science world but I’m in a league of my own in my major.”
“I can see that being true,” he nods, lips turning down, “You’re good at what you do. Just look at how you made me over.”
You try to ignore the fact that his arms are still glued to your waist, hands going to clasp just over your mid section, but it’s hard and he smells so good.
“I had a good base to work with,” you hum, going to sip at your beer and feigning nonchalant.
“Is that a compliment from the ice queen herself?” Hoseok snorts, hooking his chin over your shoulder and your thankful not for the first time that he can’t see your reaction.
“Not a compliment. Just the truth.” You murmur, “Your friends are long gone you know, there’s no need for me to sit here anymore.”
“Mm,” he hums, “so get off then.”
You don’t say anything, just take another sip of your beer, but Hoseok hears your answer loud and clear.
“For someone who’s nervous with girls you sure do seem to feel awfully comfortable with me.” You chastise, watching the field carefully when Nayeon makes an appearances.
“It’s because I know I don’t have a shot,” he shrugs impishly and you know he’s smirking even without looking at him, “It makes it a lot less scary when you have nothing to lose going in.”
“Who says you didn’t have a shot?” You ask, but it’s followed by a startled yelp when a cheer erupts from the bleachers, a bunch of drunk frat guys parading onto the field naked and covered in paint.
“The universe.” He snorts.
“You underestimate yourself.” You note.
“And what’s that supposed to mean?” He queries, a hesitant hand going to rest on your thigh. He doesn’t know where the burst of confidence came from. Maybe it’s from the beer, maybe it’s from the new clothes, or maybe it’s from the way your stares seem to linger these days—whatever it is you don’t reject his touch either way.
“Exactly what it sounds li—”
“Hey lard ass,” someone calls from above you and you turn your head to glare at Jeon Jungkook, “Nayeon scored the winning point, we’re all heading to the bar are you coming or what?”
“I’m coming, you insufferable little brat.” You hiss.
Jungkook stands there when you don’t move right away, you raise an eyebrow at him.
“What?” You scowl.
“Is that the only seat?” He queries, lip curling, “Is it proper for you to be like that?”
“What the hell are you talking about?”
“What would your parents say if they saw you sitting like that, huh?” He asks, eyes wide as he gestures to your seat on Hoseok’s lap.
Your face flushes deep before you stand up and glare at him, “Are you really scolding me on propriety? You of all people.”
“Yes and so what?” He says, chest puffing or indignantly. He takes a cautious step back before pointing an accusing finger at you, “And sit with your legs closed!”
He ducks when you go to hit him, sticking his tongue out before he races clear across the field and out of your violent reach.
“One more round!” Jimin shouts, shoving a shot glass in your hand.
You lift your head from the table long enough to flick Jimin off, all he does is grin while you groan and lay your head on Nayeon’s shoulder.
“Rock, paper, scissors over who gets to kill him.” You say to Nayeon.
She points a drunken finger at your face, “we… can’t… kill him ’s illegal.”
“It’s self defense. We have to kill him before he tries to poison us—alcohol poison us!” You shout desperately.
“You guys are all pussies!” Jungkook yells, ever the bravado drunk. Hoseok barely keeps him in his seat, halting him from clambering onto the table top, to make what you were assuming he thought was a profound speech—for the umpteenth time that night.
“Hyung,” Jungkook slurs, clapping a hand on Yoongi’s shoulder, “I once finished a twelve pack of beer in one sitting and that was, before the Hoover game, I even broke the QB record at our school that day.”
“Was anyone there to see it?” Namjoon asks, sipping at what had to be the girliest drink you’ve ever seen in your entire life—it was fuschia and he was sipping it through one of those skinny black straws.
“No, it was just me but I swear it happened!” Jungkook yelled vehemently.
“Dude,” Namjoon sighs, “in life, whatever you do, it doesn’t count if your friends aren’t there to witness it.”
“I second that.” Jimin says, raising another shot glass to his lips. It pisses you off how sober he still is when he drank twice as much as you.
“Why aren’t you fucking drunk?” You scowl.
“On the contrary I’m very much fucked,” he says, “I’m what the people call… a functioning alcoholic.”
“Let’s play another game!” Taehyung whines from his spot.
“Let’s fucking not because you’re all a bunch of dirty cheaters!” You hiss, gesturing to the table.
“You’re just saying that because you lost every single time.” Namjoon rolls his eyes, “I even won once.”
“I won a game too.” Taehyung pipes up.
“Me too.” Hoseok shrugs.
“Great,” Yoongi mutters from the inside of the booth, “You’ve each won a game and I’ve lost what feels like a year off my life spending time with you people—we’re all going home winners tonight.”
“I want a recount!” You say.
“There’s no recount in Most Likely.” Jimin points out. “If we find you most likely to do something we point at you, the person with the most fingers pointed at them has to drink.”
“Yes, and every single time you threw out a sentence I had to drink—does it make sense that I would be most likely to do all of the things that were named?” You growl.
“One of them was most likely to win in a cage fight amongst the eight of us, so yes it does make sense.” Yoongi snickers.
“I have a better propositions you limp noodles.” Jungkook says from his spot and all seven of you turn your attention to the drunken boy, “Body shots.”
“There’s two girls and six guys.” Hoseok snorts, “Don’t you think the ratios a bit uneven.”
“Okay shut the fuck up with your math lingo first of all—”
“Ratio isn’t just a math word, dumbass.”
“—second of all two of the six are gay so they don’t count.”
“What makes you think I want to do a body shot off of any of you animals?” Yoongi sneers.
“Because who the fuck wouldn’t want to do a body shot off these smokin’ abs?” Jungkook scoffs.
“I’m in.” You say suddenly, garnering six wide eyed looks.
“Are you serious?” Nayeon giggles, “You queen of ball busting are gonna let one of these morons do a shot off you?”
“It’s all in good fun, right?” You say, catching Hoseok’s eye before turning back to her.
“If you do it then I’ll do it too.” She grins.
“Well I’m out,” Yoongi grunts, “you vagina baring cretins can have at it.”
“Me too.” Taehyung shrugs before sending an apologetic look that you and Nayeon both wave off, “Not my cup of tea.”
“Not your cup of tea or not your cup of genitalia?” Jimin snickers, earning a flush Taehyung. “You all know my answer – I never mind an extra chance to get my lips—”
“Disgusting.” You cut him off.
“As much as I would love to lick any part of anyone’s body right now, I gotta run.” Namjoon sighs, before brandishing a notification on his phone, “Duty calls.”
“Are you gonna be okay to drive?” You frown.
“Dude I’ve been sipping cosmopolitans since we got here, I’m pretty sure I’d pass every sobriety test ever.” He rolls his eyes before waving his goodbye.
“And then there were three.” Jungkook says, clapping his hands together, “That is assuming your game?”
His question was directed at Hoseok who seemed to be staring off into space unknowingly. The older boy clears his throat and meets Jungkook’s challenging stare—it annoys him for some reason, and has him sitting up straighter with a curt nod.
“Great,” Jimin says, breaking the tense atmosphere, “Since there’s three of us and two of them, rock, paper, scissors.”
You watch on in silent amusement as they go through three rounds of the game, each boy eyeing the other with a competitive glare, it isn’t until the third game when Jimin’s eliminated that Hoseok meets your eyes.
You take a long gulp of beer to try and hide the flush burning bright on the apples of your cheeks, only hesitating a little when Nayeon drags you to your feet.
“Where do you want it Jeon?” Jimin asks when he comes back baring a tray, brandishing small ramekin of salt, two shots and lime wedges. He’s standing in front of Nayeon when he’s asks the question.
“I’ll do it.” He says, rising to unsteady feet when he grabs the ramekin from Jimin—
And heads straight to you.
You stare at him wide eyed when he goes to drag a finger through the salt, “What are you doing?”
“My body shot.” He shrugs, before sprinkling the salt all down the front of the v in your t shirt. You can’t even glare at him because you were still trying to catch up with his thought process.
“So go do it over there.” You hiss, letting out a small yelp when he plops a lime in your mouth to shut you up.
“Maybe I want something different.” He says, breath fanning over your face due to his close proximity.
You clench your jaw but frown when a little of the lime juice dribbles into your mouth down your chin. You chance a glance at Hoseok but the older boy looks well engrossed in his preparations, allowing Jimin the honors of setting Nayeon up for him while he rubs a hand over his neck awkwardly.
A finger on your chin has you returning your gaze back to Jungkook who’s looking at you with a glint in his eye you weren’t entirely comfortable with.
Your comfortability takes a backseat when the audacious brat goes to shove his shot glass between your breasts, a small smirk quirking at the sides of his lip.
“Ready?” Jimin calls, before patting a hand on either boys shoulder, “Remember this is race – the partner of the loser has to take a penalty shot. Got it?”
Both of them nod and Jungkook tongues at his cheek cockily, making you roll your eyes. You drag one last look at Nayeon and Hoseok who seem to be in their own little world, deep in conversation.
What the hell were they even talking about anyway?
“On your marks. Get set,” Jimin begins, “Go.”
Jungkook’s hand find purchase on your waist and your attention is drawn back to the boy in front of you, his head dips to press a lascivious if unnecessary kiss to your right breast before his tongue is swiping over the sensitive skin, your tummy dips at the sensations. But then his lips are roaming down your cleavage before his mouth is working on sucking back the shot glass and finally he’s setting it down with less haste than someone in a competition should be allowed. Two wide palms come up to cup your face while his lips find yours in a sour kiss, the lime wedge between your teeth drops when your jaw goes slack and Jungkook is swiping up the juice at the corner of your lips with his tongue.
Time seems to slow with his mouth on you like this and you find yourself kissing him back, forgetting for the briefest moment who he was, who you were and where the hell you were at. All that mattered was the way his belly seemed to clench under your hesitant hands and his mouth worked over yours.
But all too soon it was coming to an end and when you pull back Jugkook is panting and Jimin is grinning at the both of you.
“What an unexpected turn of events,” he snickers, but you don’t have half a mind to insult him. Instead you’re still blinking at Junkook who licks at his lips like he’s trying to preserve the taste of you there.
Jimin rolls his eyes, “Alright love birds, as wonderful as that show was, you lost – so take your shot like a big girl.”
His words bring you back to focus and your gaze shoots back to Hoseok, only his features are schooled in a composed mask and he’s carrying on a conversation with Taehyung as though nothing out of the ordinary just happened. As though you made out with Jeon Jungkook on a regular fucking basis.
Jimin shoves at your shoulder when you don’t respond right away and you stare down at the shot glass for a moment before someone else is grabbing it out of his hand. Your eyes lift to Jungkook and the way the column of his throat works when he throws it back, not even wincing from the burn of tequila.
He sniffs before swiping at his lower lip, “’s my fault we lost anyway.”
Jimin cocks a brow between the two of you, “Jeon Jungkook taking a penalty shot for someone else? This is a first.”
“Fuck off.” He rolls his eyes before he gathers his car keys and phone, “I have two a days tomorrow so I gotta be heading out before coach rips me a new one for showing up hung over again.”
He’s already to turning to leave when your hand shoots out to grip his wrist (without out your fucking consent.) Jungkook raises an eyebrow at the limb before you’re letting go, swiping your hands down your jeans nervously.
“I… uhh… you,” you shake your head, “Are you gonna be okay to drive?”
“Are you worried?” He grins.
You scoff at that, “No but it’d be mighty inconvenient to have to plan your funeral during mid terms.”
“I’ll be fine, Princess.” He tsks and for the first time in…. well ever, you find Jeon Jungkook attractive in a way that might just be worthy of contracting a minor STI.
Hoseok watches the entire exchange from his post in the booth, and for some reason a feeling of unease is clawing at his stomach.
He hadn’t anticipated Jungkook doing a body shot off you because well why would he? But the more Hoseok thought about it was more like – why the hell wouldn’t he?
You were gorgeous and you had a body that men would kill for the chance to worship, and it only set you that much further from himself. Paranoia and self doubt find their way back into his brain, where they’ve made a home for themselves, reminding Hoseok to take heed, remember his place, always remember where he stood with you. It was only made worst by the look that Jungkook sends you when he rubs an apologetic hand over your hipbone before bidding you adieu.
The action nags at Hoseok more than should and he finds himself shooting to unsteady feet before his mind has caught up with him. You yelp at the sudden action and catch him before he goes tumbling off the platform the booth is sat a top.
“Alright there, big guy?” You grin, holding him steady, and you pat a patronizing hand over his belly, “Let’s get some food in you and get you home, yeah?”
“I don’t need any fucking food,” he scoffs, annoyed by your sudden caring behavior.
Is that all you saw him as? As someone who needed to be looked after, cared for, handled with kid gloves? Did you not see him as a man, because fuck… fuck if it didn’t feel like it sometimes. When your touches or your glanced would linger he was able to delude himself into thinking that maybe you had wanted him too—when you were at the field and in his lap he thought that maybe… maybe there was something there but—
Leave it to him to read to deep into something that meant nothing to you. In fact, the thought itself angered him, had him flushing with embarrassment.
“I don’t need to fucking go home and especially not with the likes of you.” He sneered, breaking out of your grip irritably.
You call out to him but he’s already made it across the bar, storming off angrily. To his credit he makes it exactly two feet from you before he’s collapsing, the evidence of his low tolerance catching up to him, making his legs wobble unsteadily and the room spin before his eyes.
The last thing he sees is you rushing to his side before everything’s going black and he falls into a deep sleep.
There’s a pounding in his head that just won’t seem to stop, and Hoseok probably could have done without the sour taste on his tongue, every inch of his body is screaming at him to go back to sleep but he’s already penetrated the first barrier and all dredges of slumber leave him, instead nausea and indigestion take its place.
Hoseok rubs at his eyes with the back of his hands, trying to discern his current location, but alas they’re all failed attempts when he realizes the room is pitch black.
He’s just about to get up and investigate when a sliver of light breaks through a crack in the door and your silhouette appears before him.
“Morning sunshine,” you whisper, and he can barely make you out but he can tell that you’ve changed into pajamas and if he squints just enough he can see pink tinged cheeks on a freshly scrubbed face.
“What time is it?” He croaks, annoyed at the revelation that all liquor from earlier has yet to leave his body, courtesy of the woozy feeling in his stomach.
“It’s four am,” you explain, “you weren’t asleep very long but you blacked out at the bar and I told Jimin to just take us here. He’s crashed out on the couch with Taehyung.”
“Oh,” he says before trying to stand, wincing when a wave of vertigo knocks him back on his ass.
“Chill out dude.” You say before diving into the confines of your bed, your body relaxing against the cool duvet.
“I’ll just… I’ll show myself out,” he clears his throat. He hesitates when your grip on his t shirt yanks him back down to your mattress.
“Don’t try and be a martyr tonight, will you?” You sigh, “Just relax.”
How the hell did you expect him to relax when he was laying next to you? Smelling like heaven and looking like sin. Your sleep shorts did little to hide the plump curve of your ass, and your tank top was so low he could make out the beginnings of a hickey—reminding him why he had stormed off in the first place.
Jeon fucking Jungkook.
“What part of relax is lost on you?” You ask, turning on your side to face him, and alternatively giving him a better view of your cleavage. “Never had a co-ed sleepover before?”
“Do I look like I’ve had a co-ed sleepover before?” He snorts.
“Here we go again,” you sigh, looking up at him from under your lashes, “Do you mind telling me why you’re always so down on yourself?”
“You mean other than the obvious?” He scoffs.
“I’m serious I mean, you’re in the top 1% of the country, you’re about to be rich if you think about the fact that you’ll succeed in whatever field you’re about to pursue and now Hoseok, you’re hot.” You say and he tries to ignore the way his cheeks flush at your compliment. “Even when you dressed the way you did before you were still handsome I just don’t see why—”
“Why what? Why I have such a low fucking self esteem?” He snaps, before rising to his elbows to glare at you, “Why are you always pushing this why can’t you ever mind your own business?”
“Because you are my business. We’re friends and—”
“You said we were friends, I never agreed to any of it.” He grits out and he doesn’t miss the flash of hurt that crosses your features, even in the dim light of your bedroom.
You stare at him for a beat before letting out an annoyed huff and turning on your side, actively blocking him out. Hoseok sighs before carding a hand through his hair, frustrated.
“___.. I… Didn’t mean that I—”
“Of course you did.” You laugh bitterly, “Because no matter how much I think we’re progressing you’re always there to remind me that this is just a debt owed. That every time you spend time with me is purely obligatory with only your end goal in sight.”
“Well why the hell would you want to hang out with me otherwise?” He scowls, “It doesn’t make sense.”
“It doesn’t have to make sense. But don’t worry because I heard your message loud and clear: I won’t bother you unless it’s related to getting you laid.”
“____,” he groans, “that’s not what I meant!”
You turn back to face him, angrily, eyebrows slashed down in a frown as you glared at him. Even then you still looked beautiful, like a really pissed of fairy laying next to him with the moonlight draping over your fine features.
“I’m going to sleep.” You say, shutting your eyes.
Hoseok rubs at the back of his neck, wondering how he managed to wind up in this position – with you, always with you. And for someone so smart, he didn’t understand anything these days, you had a special way of efficiently fucking him up, confusing him until he was grasping at strings for reason.
The silence in the room was deafening, the only thing keeping him from slipping out was the way you seemed to be pouting, even with your eyes closed and it was so fucking endearing to him. It had his drunken mind reaching to tuck a strand of hair behind your ear—the move was so intimate and uncalled for even to him, so he wasn’t all that surprised when your eyes shot open at the gentle caress.
Hoseok clears his throat, looking for something, anything to say when his hand is frozen in mid-air.
“My parents,” he blurts out.
“Huh?” You whisper with a frown.
“They’re really ,,, demanding,” he explains and when he starts he can’t seem to stop, “you know how you said they’re assholes? Well they’re worst than that, asshole is too nice a word to describe them. They’re really unfeeling, cold, clinical with everything—including their kids.”
“Oh.” You say.
Because really what could you say?
“Yeah oh,” he agrees, “I don’t mind being an engineer, I like it, I like math and science and I like making robots but even that… it bothers them. There’s no time for recreational things, for fun. It’s all about work to them.”
“You build robots?” You implore.
“I find time for it.” He shrugs, “it relaxes me, a lot like dancing but I don’t really have time for either these days.”
Your hand finds his way to his cheek and he lets you soothe over the skin there, acting as though the alcohol is urging on both of your actions. His hand goes up to catch yours, but he leaves it there.
And you both pretend. For now.
“Will you ever let me watch you dance?” You hum, smoothing one of his sideburns gently, and Hoseok lets his eyes flutter shut, “You’ve piqued my interest and now I just feel like you’re doing it on purpose—leaving me waiting with bated breath.”
He chuckles but it’s short lived and suddenly he staring at your lips. “I’ve been too busy for anything that’s not work or school related. I haven’t found anytime to go the studio.”
“Let me tag along when you go,” you yawn, letting Hoseok’s fingers lace with your own.
“I will.” He replies.
“Promise?” You query, but you’re fighting sleep, your eyes are heavy and begging for you to give in to the temptation of a good eight hours of rest.
You never do hear a reply because you’re already dead asleep in a matter of seconds.
Hoseok stares at your sleeping figure for longer than is necessary, taking in the silent rise and fall of your chest, to the soft skin of your cheeks. He waits a beat before letting his finger catch on your lower lip, to swipe there. So lush and full and bruised red with your natural tint.
How is anyone this pretty when they sleep?
It’s but a moment before your own hand is going up to grip his wrist and he freezes with the realization that you’re doing it to keep it there instead of push him away. A sigh leaves him as he watched the way your lashes are fanned down against your cheeks.
So beautiful it hurts.
“You’re too good for me,” he says, but he knows I falls on deaf ears, “in more ways than one. You always were too good for me, even back then. I don’t know what I did to deserve you.”
He stares at you longingly, checking to make sure if your breathing is still even, to see if he should date carry on. He makes the decision with a small smile when a soft snore leaves you.
“Back then you felt like an angel—it’s corny, right?” He whispers, his hand going to push the hair back from your face, “but you were the only good thing I had going for me. Even now, none of this feels real. I hope you’ll forgive me when you find out the truth, I won’t try and keep it from you. I hope you understand that I needed to be with you like this, even just once.”
A mumble of words slip past your lips and Hoseok is frozen stiff by the thought that you might have heard his confession, but you don’t say anything in reply only continue to mutter on about a toaster before you shuffled closer to him and shoved your hands up his shirt.
Hoseok cringed when he felt your frozen skin press against his own and he gently tugs them out from underneath his t shirt before he’s warming them with his own, coaxing you back down from the surface and into a deeper state of sleep. He lets you curl into him, even if he knows it’s only for his body heat, he would take whatever he could get.
Obligatory cuddling was still cuddling after all.
a/n: this chapter was really hard to write for me. i know i mentioned being bullied growing up but a lot of the feelings expressed are things that ive dealt with the loneliness/desperation and i hope if any of u feel like that u feel comfortable enough to talk to me about. that’s all ok ❤️

DON’T THREATEN ME WITH A GOOD TIME.
‘ it’s a hell of a feeling, though. ’ ‘ who are these people ? ’ ‘ I just woke up in my underwear. ’ ‘ I should probably introduce myself. ’ ‘ there’s no such thing as getting out of hand. ’ ‘ memories tend to just pop up. ’ ‘ don’t think I’ll ever get enough. ’ ‘ champagne, cocaine, gasoline– and most things in between. ’ ‘ I roam the city in a shopping cart. ’ ‘ this night is heating up. ’ ‘ raise hell and turn it up. ’ ‘ If you go out you might pass out in a drain pipe. ’ ‘ don’t threaten me with a good time. ’ ‘ what are these footprints? they don’t look very human-like. ’ ‘ Now I wish that I could find my clothes. ’ ‘ I wanna wake up, can’t even tell if this is a dream. ’ ‘ how did we end up in my neighbor’s pool ? ’

DEATH OF A BACHELOR.
‘ do I look lonely ? ’ ‘ people have told me I don’t look the same. ’ ‘ maybe I lost weight. ’ ‘ I’m playing hooky with the best of the best. ’ ‘ I’m walking the long road, watching the sky fall. ’ ‘ how could I ask for more ? ’ ‘ a lifetime of laughter and the expense of the death of a bachelor. ’ ‘ it feels like my heart is going to burst. ’ ‘ and when you think of me am I the best you’ve ever had ? ’ ‘ share one more drink with me, smile even though you’re sad. ’

THE GOOD THE BAD AND THE DIRTY.

HOUSE OF MEMORIES.
‘ the lonely moments just get lonelier, the longer you’re in love. ’ ‘ I don’t want to be afraid. ’ ‘ baby, we built this house on memories. ’ ‘ promise me a place in your house of memories. ’ ‘ I think of you from time to time, more than I thought I would. ’ ‘ you were just too kind. ’ ‘ I was too young to know. ’ ‘ that’s all that really matters. ’ ‘ I was a fool. ’ ‘ those thoughts of past lovers, they’ll always haunt me. ’ ‘ I wish I could believe you’d never wrong me. ’ ‘ will you remember me in the same way as I remember you ? ’
‘ there’s no sunshine. ’ ‘ all the guests at the party, they’re so insincere. ’ ‘ these nightmares always hang on past the dream. ’
Your first record was called Born to Die. Now this record is Lust for Life. In between that, what is it that affected you enough to go from Born to Die to Lust for Life?
Yeah, they’re complete opposites, and it’s funny because when I chose the title, I didn’t think about it right away. It was the title of the first song I wrote for this record. But there are so many things that have gotten me to the point that I’m at now. One of them is just time. And because I do write everything myself, I just wanted to chronicle how I was feeling honestly, in the moment, for each record. So, I had a lot of stories that I wanted to tell that I hadn’t told yet up until this point. And now, through the last four records, I got out a lot of those stories and a lot of those feelings, and for the first time, I’ve caught myself up to real time. And now, I’m at this place where I feel like I’m really present, and when I’m reading the news, I’m really reading it, whereas before I was a little bit in my own head. So, there’s definitely been a feeling of freedom and lightness being in the present moment. That brings on that lust for life feeling, when you don’t have all of those feelings about the past weighing you down. I remember an interview that you did once where you said, “Around every corner there’s an adventure waiting to happen,” and I’m kind of in that zone right now. I just feel like whatever each day brings me is something that I need and I want. It’s just time. Time has brought me here.
Harry nervously asked as he sat from the edge of the bed, your possible reaction making him even more nervous and anxious even if you haven’t said anything, your figure sat on the office chair that isn’t facing him.
“I — I told you it was only for a skit. S-someone had this idea to make the mark — the hickey, to be as real as possible. Then well uhm, James called-…”
He went quiet when you finally turned, your hands clasped tightly with a rigid look on your face that made Harry’s breath hitch.
“Then why did you let Kendall mark you?”
From what he’s hearing, it didn’t count as a question, but instead, it came off as a harsh statement bluntly asking him why he let someone, someone who isn’t you, put a mark on him.
“I — I wasn'y thinking.”
Harry unknowingly found himself stuttering even if he was telling the absolute truth, his heart pounding against its confines.
“You sure didn’t do.”
You emphasized, slowly walking to his position which was torture for him, a breathy grunt escaping his lips once you sat on his lap facing him, your legs latched at his waist.
Harry closed his eyes shut, not lying when he says he broke onto a cold sweat once you stayed silent that made him not know what you’re thinking of, mixed with the intense dark stare you’re giving him which he couldn’t go past every single time.
“It’s so fucking unfair.”
Your finger slowly trailed from the back of his ear agonizingly until it stopped on his exposed chest, his breathing faltering with him shuddering at your simple touch.
And he isn’t lying either when he says he’s turned on by the change of your voice and words, the very thought itself of you being the dominant to him brought his goodebumps but now that it’s unfolding right on him, he swears he’s never been on this much pain and anticipation until now.
“She gets to mark you,” you bitterly started off, your hand slowly going through his hair that made him swalow thickly, his hard-on being harder to handle once you pulled his hair.
“And I don’t?”
Harry tried to choke down his moans once your thumb harshly went over the small red mark on his neck, not being able to hold them in any longer even if it’s the massive effect of your words on him.
“So, the answer to your question — I’m not mad.”
He’s squirming once your lips brushed over his ear, a little whine being heard as he now couldn’t deny the desperation on him, all the pain being put on him as he’s the one tonight who’ll be begging.
“I’m just furious.”
He threw his head back, being honest once he admits he’s wrapped around your finger.
Harry moaned once your lips were on his, the torture being him following your lead, your tongue lapping against his own with your lips detaching once every few seconds for brief moments made him long for the touch and the feeling he’s obsessed with.
You stopped, your intense gaze on him making him submissively go back until his head was mere inches from the headboard lying down, his bulge being more than prominent once you sat on his crotch again.
“Please — fuck, no. Don’t stop.”
You mockingly frowned, cooing at Harry who’s eager for any type of contact with you that would relieve him.
“Aw, does Harry deserve this?”
He hissed underneath you the moment you circled your hips against his cock that’s still restrained with his tight jeans, a desperate whine leaving his lips when you unbuttoned his polo shirt slowly as one by one, trailing down until your hand stopped at the button of his jeans.
“As far as I’m concerned, someone gave you a hickey. And well, it’s not me since I’m not allowed to, right?”
Harry’s eyes fluttered closed yet immediately opened them once he felt a tug at his roots at the back of his head, the sudden feeling sending shivers down his spine.
“So that means,” you trailed off, Harry’s eyes pleading for you to do something, anything that could add to the increasing ecstasy he’s in.
“Someone else got to touch Harry. My Harry.”
His throat went dry once he felt his jeans go completely off, the cold air hitting his expose cock that made him moan.
You smashed your lips onto his again, this time being a lot more fulfilling with how you bit his lip and had his hair on your hands, his breathing going heavier as he wanted to feel every inch of you yet was held back by the unspoken but known punishment of having to not touch the other.
Harry absolutely had no problem of you claiming him considering that he would’ve reacted the same when he would see a hickey in your neck that wasn’t made by him for a skit.
“Then I guess you need to learn on who’s the only one who gets to do this.”
A strangled moan filled the room once your teeth sinked in on the layer of the soft flesh of his neck, the combination ig nibbling and sucking from his neck up to his jaw already enough for him to not stay still.
“Just — just you.”
You hummed against his skin, your tongue trailing from his neck down to his chest, leaving another mark as your thumb grazed some that you’ve already made
“Tell me what you want, baby.”
It became hard for Harry to form the words as they weren’t on the tip of his tongue, being so caught up at the moment he wants to savor every last bit of the pleasure.
“Mouth. I — I-…”
“You want my mouth wrapped around your cock?”
You batted your eyelashes, looking at him with the feign innocence in your eyes, your figure drawling up on the underside of his hard-on.
“Y-yes — fuck!”
You slowly lowered your mouth until it’s hovering centimeters away from his member that you’re holding firmly, purposely taking off your shirt and boxers in the last minute purposely, leaving you in the lingerie that Harry coincidentally loves so dearly.
“Love, you — you’ve got to — fucking hell!”
Harry almost yelled once your mouth sunken down in him without warning that ceased his begging, his tip at the back of your throat made his eyes roll to the back of his head just by the sight of you taking him so well.
“S'so — so fucking good,” he cried out, biting his lip as he felt moans tear through his throat, each ine getting louder than the other.
Harry gripped the sheets tightly once you hollowed your cheeks and started swallowing, bucking his hips slightly that made him release a moan that was beyond as his high from having a sudden spike of pleasure.
He barely got to finish the sentence since he already came the moment you slightly grazed your teeth on the spot just above his balls, no high being so on top that his vision darkened at the edges, throwing his head back as he looked at you swallowing his load, some dribbling down the edges of your mouth, his mouth formed agape.
“Can someone else have you like this?”
You asked with authority, climbing uo that your core was grinding against his cock, some of the wetness your harboring making the teasing so slick.
“Fuck, fuck — no! Shit, no!”
You smirked, unclasping your bra just in time that you looked down on him.
“You can touch now, love.”
Harry praised you in return, bringing your head down abruptly to have both a taste of your mouth and himself which he really didn’t mind at the moment, his hands lowering down as they squeezed your boobs, his fingers digging in on the flesh that made you moan into the kiss, his hips brushing up again.
He looked down, being in a rush to have himself inside you that he already ripped your lace panties.
“I — I’ll buy you more, I swear.”
He promised, his hands on your ass that guided you right all the way down his throbbing cock, both your load moans in sync.
“So fucking tight.”
He panted against your neck, his bucking hips and your lowering figure against each other that every thrust hit you perfectly, completely filling you up as you cried out in pleasure as well as Harry.
Harry held you tight and close, giving one last thrust that was the homerun as pleasure seepuned in you on every part of your body.
He pulled you down to his chest, a smile on his face as his lips brushed against yours.
The moment those three words escaped your lips all six boys stared at you, all with varying expressions on their faces.
“Tampons?” Sodapop asked quizzically. “Sweet heart, you don’t need any tampons, we have plenty of napkins in the pantry. Do you want me to go get you some?”
“Napkins?” You grunted impatiently as you stared at your big brother. “And what do you suppose using napkins will achieve Sodapop?”
“Uh…” He trailed off, looking at Steve for support, but he shook his head… there was no way he was getting involved in this one. He puts his hands up in surrender. “I suppose it’d stop the, y’know… flow?”
“You can say blood. And no, it won’t stop the “flow”, there is a crime scene in my undies.”
No one dared to say a word. Not even Darry who would usually scold you for saying something so vulgar.
You honestly weren’t meaning to be so bitchy, honestly, you weren’t… you had just had enough. You were fed up. All you wanted was your mother. But instead, you had to go through all of this by yourself. Darry was absolutely clueless… the day you got your first period, you thought he was going to have a heart attack. He had looked like a deer caught in headlights.
But the boys winced the moment you had made that comment.
“We can go get you tampons” Soda said softly, making eye contact with all the boys. “All of us, we will all go together.”
“Hey, Y/N… I can steal you some chocolate…” Two-Bit grinned, reaching out punch your arm softly. “What’ya say?”
“If I eat chocolate right now, I’m going to puke… to be honest, right now I really feel like I want to murder someone.” And boy was that the truth, your first victim would probably be Steve. “But I also really want soft pretzels.”
“We can get you those.” Johnny smiled at you, he looked a little worried to… you had been getting pains all day… excruciating pains. And he felt awful sorry for you.
“Okay, let’s wrap this up.” Steve said, walking straight out the door… you could tell he was glad to leave…
As all 6 boys walked out the door you heard Dally mutter to Ponyboy “I say we just get it over with and we kill her.”

Probably meeting Oliver through your families.
Instantly being turned off by his young boyish charm and overly suave actions.

Somehow, blindly trading numbers at his Christmas party and soon being taken away by your friends only moments later.

“Wanna bounce ? :)”
Looking around to see him a floor below you, grinning up and waving his phone, pointing a chin to the door.

Soon after learning that he is extremely protective.
And soon after learning that, you find out he is Arrow.
Loving Felicity to death and always hanging out with her.
Lowkey being a momma to Thea.
Moving in very quickly because he is constantly worried about you.
Sex, a lot.
Showers often happen together.
Calling him affectionate pet names and getting him to crack a grin and blush every time.
Family dinners, parties and events are a constant.
Oliver telling you he loves you every chance he gets.
Come on, he said it on the first date.
Being huge flirts with each other, and no one else.
Except the both of you flirt with Felicity, just to make her blush.
Knowing just about everything he’ll tell you about the island.
Feeling him tighten his grip in the middle of the night when he has nightmares.
Being his medic when he comes home unexpectedly with loud and proud wounds.
