Chapter 8: I Hate Myself and I Want to Die (Part V)
Somewhere around four p.m.
fell asleep. She did
so with gusto, sliding to her left until she was partially sprawled over Teo,
who, as a true gentleman, did not utter a word of complaint. It was a deep and
restless sleep, riddled with nightmares and black slimy shadows. She could hear
shots in the back of her mind and see blood, slowly trickling down obsidian
black walls. More than once Teo had to shake her awake to stop her trashing
At eight p.m. the doctor exited the emergency
room, his face set in a grave expression, all hard lines and sharp edges. He
stopped before them, searching their faces before his lips broke into a
pleasant smile, ‘Miss
Vávra, I presume. Your friend just cleared the surgery.’
‘Will she… I’m sorry. Will she be okay?’
‘The next twenty-four hours will be critical, but she
is doing just fine. She is a fighter.’
‘She is,’ she mumbled. ‘May I see her?’
He shook his head. ‘She is in intensive care for now.
It will be best not to disturb her. Plus, you seem like you need some rest
She looked down on her bloodied, crumpled dress and
nodded. She did need some rest. But she wasn’t about to get it. She had a date
later tonight. Looking back up at the doctor she tried for a smile, ‘Thank
‘It’s what I do for a living,’ he said gently, then
turned on Teo, expression getting hard. ‘Now make yourself useful, boy, and
take this fine lady home. She needs a warm meal and a bed.’
Toe huffed, helping her to her feet. ‘And I need a
‘Funny. Your mother used to say something similar when we
They left the hospital, Teo promising to
take care of her and she promising to listen to her escort. When they walked
out into the cold night she looked up at the starless sky asking, ‘So the doctor
is your uncle?’
‘Yeah. Pretty handy considering my own career path.’
‘Listen, bro, you don’t have to do this,’ she mumbled. ‘I live a block away. I can walk home just fine. It’s no problem.’
‘No question. You heard the doctor! I’m bound by
police oath. So, please, do get into that car and stop arguing.’
She did have to stop at home one way or another and so
she nodded and followed him to his Toyota. Seeing her home safe would ease his
mind and save her the effort of trying to convince him she was fine. Plus, who
the hell knew what will go down tonight. She was better off having an alibi.
Dean Winchester x Reader Words: 600 Warnings: mentions of death, sad!Dean, widowed!Dean A/N: This is for @supernatural-jackles Birthday Challenge. It’s based on More Than A Feeling by Boston. Happy birthday, lovely!!! I hope you enjoy it!! (TAG #Jen’s SPN Birthday Challenge) (I submitted it on time, yay!!)
Dean missed you.
It was that simple. He missed you with every piece of his being. The pain was beginning to fade. It had been over two years now, after all. He was just beginning to be able to look at a daisy - your favorite flower - again without tearing up. He could finally drive down that one open stretch of highway with the music cranked all the way up and be happy about it again. He could look in the eyes of his four year old and see your smile and grin about it proudly himself.
whats your favorite desus moment? (and also what are your favorite daryl dixon and paul rovia moments?)
My favorite desus moment? Oh, that’s an easy question! It’s the sanctuary scene from s7e8. It was a horrible scene for Daryl, yes, but the fact that the writers wanted Paul to witness it is just idk..so important? It’s so important for Daryl and Jesus’ storyline, cause Jesus’ the only one who knows about it and I believe that it’ll come up again. I hope they’re gonna talk about it and get closer through that. I mean come on, they have to talk about, right? Why else was Jesus at the sanctuary?
Hm, my favorite Daryl moments? His smiles. His happy moments. I miss that a lot. We see so much kickass/depressed!Daryl, which of course..happens to someone in the apocalypse, but still I wanna see him smile again, let my boy be happy (with his ninja boyfriend). And of course him eating spaghetti with our lovely gay couple was such an adorable scene, haha!
And what are my favorite Paul Rovia moments? He can do whatever tf he wants I’ll love him to death anyway. Okay no, I’m gonna be serious now. I love sassy Jesus, I love badass Jesus, I love adorable lil shit Jesus. Jesus kicking Daryl and Rick’s asses was a beautiful scene. Like, bitch u thought Daryl and Rick were the most badass?? then watch tf out cause ma gay ninja’s on his way to kick their pretty asses!
At 11 o’clock at night, you moved across the train car to sit far too close to two girls about half your age so you could interrupt our conversation to tell us how pretty we are. We said thank you, have a good night, and went back to our conversation.
You interrupted us a second time to say that you didn’t want to bother us, but we needed to hear it, how pretty we are. We said cool, thanks, have a good night, and went back to our conversation.
You interrupted us a third time to say you wouldn’t say anything else, you didn’t want to bother us, you just had to let us know. We said have a good night, and went back to our conversation.
This seemed to perplex you. You came all that way across a train car to bestow upon us this life altering knowledge - the fact we were pretty - and all you got was a polite thank you? You grumbled about gratitude, about how you better not end up on facebook, were we putting you on facebook? Why was my friend looking at her phone? Was she putting you on facebook? All you’d done was tell us we were pretty.
At this point, my friend says, “Sir, we’re trying to have a conversation. Please don’t be disrespectful.”
This was when you got angry. Disrespectful? YOU? For taking the time out of your day to tell us we were pretty? Did we know we were pretty?
“Yes, we knew,” says my friend.
Well, that was the last straw. How dare we know we were pretty! Sure, you were allowed to tell us we were pretty, but we weren’t allowed to think it independently, without your permission! And if we had somehow already known - perhaps some other strange man had informed us earlier in the day - we certainly weren’t allowed to SAY it! Where did we get off, having confidence in ourselves? You wanted us to know we were pretty, sure, but only as a reward for good behavior. We were pretty when you gifted it upon us with your words, and not a moment before! You raged for a minute about how horrible we were for saying we thought we were pretty, how awful we turned out to be.
I took a page out of your book and interrupted you. “Sir, you said you wouldn’t say anything else, and then you kept talking,” I said. “You complimented us, we said thank you, and we don’t owe you anything else. It’s late, you’re a stranger, and I don’t want to talk to you. We’ve tried to disengage multiple times but you keep bothering us.”
At this point, our train pulled into the next stop. My friend suggested we leave, so we got up and went to the door.
Seeing your last chance, you lashed out with the killing blow. “I was wrong!” you shouted at us as we left, “You’re ugly! You’re both REALLY UGLY!”
Fortunately, since our worth as human beings is in no way dependent upon how physically attractive you find us, my friend and I were unharmed and continued on with our night. She walked home; I switched to the next train car and sat down.
So, strange man, I know you’re confused. I don’t know if you’ll think about anything I said to you, but I hope you do learn this: when you give someone something - a gift, a compliment, whatever - with stringent stipulations about how they respond to it, you are not giving anything. You are setting a trap. It is not as nice as you think it is.
But you’ll be happy to know that when I sat down in the next car, a strange man several seats over called, “Hey, pretty girl. Nice guitar. How was your concert?”
“Thanks. Good,” I said, then looked away and put on my headphones, the universal sign for ‘I’d like to be left alone.’

i miss how we used to talk. i miss our calls. i miss our night conversations where we just talked about random stuff. i miss the days where we just sat there and looked at each other because that’s all that mattered. i miss how we used to spill tea. i miss how you would tell me to wake you up an hour later but that was just an excuse so we could talk. i miss the times where i could make you smile and forget about everything else. i miss the nights where we laughed what was left of our heart and soul out. i miss going to sleep knowing you were still mine the next day. i miss seeing your face right before i say goodnight. i miss your goodnight texts. i miss your smiley faces. i miss everything about you. i miss you.
“Nope,” Chat Noir admits, trying to
keep any disappointment from sneaking into his tone. He’d never slept over at
someone’s house before. His father was far
too protective to have him do something like that.
Prompt- lena is running for president and she meets kara on the campaign trail
“Ponytail” Kara jerked to attention, “Lena Luthor will be in National City for her Presidency campaign. You’re covering it.”
“Did I stutter?” Kara adjusted her glasses shaking her head. Snapper had never given her anything so high profile before, it was just a shock. “Great. Don’t screw it up.”
“Sorry. Excuse me. I’m sorry.” Kara shuffled sideways through the row towards an empty seat in the middle. Clutching her purse to her side trying not to hit anyone in the face. Slipping into the seat, Kara dropped her purse between her feet rummaging for her notepad and pen.
Kara looked around the room as a man at the mic thanked everyone for attending and made Lena’s introduction. It was a small venue, a bit bigger than a school gymnasium, but not by much. There was press scattered throughout the room, but mostly it was women and young adults that filled the seats. A few held hand made signs of support, calling people to vote for Lena as president.
The clicking of heels on the stage brought Kara’s attention back to the stage. She was well versed on Lena’s platform, she had been paying attention to the poles, and the interviews, and generally staying informed, but she had never seen the woman in person. The cameras certainly didn’t do her justice.
Lena crossed the stage, as she had done a hundred times before. Ignoring the flashes of cameras and the random shouting Lena smiled into the crowd, thanking everyone once again for coming. The floor was immediately opened to questions from the public. Not all were relevant or profound but Lena answered each one as they were the most important question. Finally at her time signal, she opened the floor to the press.
The first to jump up from her seat was a tall blonde. Hair tied back in a ponytail, wearing a yellow sundress, and thick rimmed glasses.
“Hi Ms. Luthor, Kara Danvers from CatCo magazine.” Lena gave a smile of support as the young woman stumbled over her question. She was not the typical image of the female reporter Lena saw on the campaign trail. She was the exact opposite. Most women of the press she saw took on the same serious hard looks as the men. Kara Danvers however, stood among the sea of black like a ray of sunshine.
A snicker brought Lena’s attention back. She could tell Kara was nervous but she had still asked a relevant and important question. How did she plan to support (financially or otherwise) for her initiative to keep more young girls interested in STEM throughout their academics? As a woman that had built most of her career off a background in science, it was a cause dear to her heart. As she spoke she noticed the woman’s brows furrowing as she scribbled. Without realizing it Lena had started to move up on her toes, as if the motion would somehow let her see what was being written down so frantically.
As Lena made her way through the rest of the questions her eyes kept drifting to the reporter. Watching her as Kara watched other reporters ask their questions before scribbling down Lena’s answers. As the time slot came to an end, Lena gracefully made her exit, listening to her closer tell the audience that Ms. Luthor would be back on the floor in a minute to mingle and introduce herself. After a quick drink of water to prepare herself for the next hour of chatting Lena went back out to say more personal hello’s to those who came to show their support.
Immediately pulled in by a group of young women looking to get a photo, Lena looked away from Kara to smile at the camera. When she looked back at the chairs they were empty. Determined not to be bothered by the quick exit Lena continued making her rounds, nodding politely at suggestions offered, smiling for photos, and answering questions that didn’t have the opportunity to be heard when she was on stage. Catching a glimpse of yellow Lena turned mid photo.
“I’m sorry.” Lena smiled again for the camera before placing her hand on the person’s back. “If you’ll excuse me.” Lena departed before she heard groans of disappointment. Her eyes narrowing in on the reporter that was currently talking to a young man that had come out to hear her talk.
“Hello” Lena smiled at the young man before turning slightly to Kara. “Sorry, I interrupted… please continue.”
“No no Ms. Luthor, Eli here just finished answering my question on why he believes you have so many young people here today.” Kara smiled brightly as the young man took his cue to leave.
“I hope you won’t be using that as your code for LGBT” Lena’s lifted her eyebrow as she saw the realization flash across Kara’s face as she quickly took in the group again, suddenly seeing all the Pride paraphernalia she had missed before. “Apparently everyone here but you already knows my little secret.”
“It’s ok, I came out of the closet long before I ever thought of running for president. But it would make a nice touch don’t you think? First lesbian president.”
“Yes it would!” Feeling like she poked enough fun at Kara, Lena decided to switch topics.“You didn’t seem impressed by my answers today Ms. Danvers.”
“I’m not sure if I was.” Lena was used to the doubt. She had been stuck with it ever since she was adopted and took on the Luthor name.
“Why is that exactly?”
“Your views. They are wonderful. But I feel that you are optimistic. That you will not be able to make them happen as easily as you think they will.”
“One thing I have learned Ms.Danvers-“
“One thing I have learned, Kara” Lena smiled as the name rolled off her tongue. “Is that things rarely come easy.”
Crossing her arms Lena continued when she saw Kara’s eyes soften. “I just want to make a difference, you understand that?”
Lena finally broke eye contact as she saw Jess motioning off to the side. “I do have a question for you though Ms. Luthor-“
“Unfortunately Kara. I have to keep making rounds. But…how about I take you out to dinner?” Lena smirked, lightly biting down her bottom lip. “And you can ask me anything you want.” Lena signalled Jess to approach.
“Jess, can you give Kara my card? And write my personal number on it please.” Lena mouth twitched as she watched Kara’s lips fall open slightly in surprise. “I hope this isn’t the last time we talk.”
Kara took the card from Jess was she watched Lena walk away smiling to a couple she moved towards. “I hope not either.”
↳ “Do I really deserve to be alone even though I want to be by your side?”

The music reverberated throughout the large home, blasting and threatening to pierce his skin and seep into his veins. People were dancing, yelling along with the music and having the time of their lives; wanting nothing more than to get wasted and to just forget. Others who had the mind to think, just stood back while drinking small sips from their cups—examining the humans who were begging to drown deeper into their drunkenness, to swim to the shore to survive the night or to just fall deep into the waters; giving up and letting their subconscious mind take over. The house was surely trembling from the commotion within, wanting nothing more than to relieve it from the atrocious tension, to feel blissful like it once had and not all clogged up from the poison that was slowly building up.
Amidst the many partygoers under the twinkling lights scattered on the ceiling and the loud obnoxious immature chatter amongst many groups, Jungkook stood in front of the home bar, pointing to a bottle while the man on the other side happily grabbed it and handed it to him. Jungkook took a plastic cup from a stack and bit the lid off the bottle, fizz quickly slipping out while he poured it’s contents into his cup. He had no idea what was slowly taking over his body. He had no idea how he got to the party, or even why he came; but what he did know was this.
Summary: Senior Rowan Whitethorn is new to town. It doesn’t take him long to get use to a new school, make new friends, even join the local hockey team. But it also doesn’t take him long to meet sophomore and figure skater Aelin Galathynius. And it doesn’t take him long to realize one thing; he can’t stand her.
Aelin had to resist the urge to roll her eyes. She glanced over at Nehemia, but the dark skinned beauty was too busy backing into a parking spot of the school parking lot to pay her any attention.
“Uncle Orlon,” The car came to a stop and Aelin sent Nehemia another pointed look - “Isn’t going to kill me for added a little extra sugar in my coffee.” A pause. “Uncle Weylan might though.”
“There are several things wrong with your statement,” Lysandra spoke up from the back of the car. She leant forward to look at herself in the rearview mirror, fixing her hair as she spoke. “One, you got a gingerbread latte and added three extra packets of sugar. I wouldn’t call that ‘a little’. And two,” Lysandra turned, sending Aelin a deadly smile. “Coach Weylan will definitely kill you when he finds out.”
“If he finds out.” Aelin smirked, taking a big sip of her over sugared drink.

Genre: Romance, Fluff, Jealous!Zach POV: Reader’s/First Person
A/N: Hey guys! I really missed writing about Jealous!Zach so I had to bring him back even for just a short one-shot. A couple of people also requested for a Jealous!Zach imagine and I thought now was the perfect time since it’s been a week since I’ve started this blog! Happy week-sary to me haha! Anyway, enjoy this cute little write-up starring Jealous!Zach and a special participation from Clay Jensen. LOL.
“I could get used to this.”
“So could I.”
I reply as Zach and I laid together on the leather sofa in his living room. He laid on the sofa with his legs spread out and his back leaning comfortably on the armrest. I was on top of him, my head resting on his firm chest with my arms wrapped around his waist. I placed my ear where his heart was, I could hear it beating every second or so and the sound of his beating heart calmed my head and pulled the corners of my lips upwards. His arms were wrapped around me, almost like a warm blanket and his chin rested on the crown of my head. We just sat there in silence, although it was very comfortable and calming.
It’s only been a couple of months since we had officially started dating but for some reason it’s almost like we’ve known each other for more than that. We’re very comfortable with each other, and we already know each other quite well if I do say so myself. But of course, like any other relationship, ours wasn’t exactly a walk in the park either.
It was times like this when I didn’t mind him always being busy with school, or basketball for that matter. He has to do well so that he can get a scholarship in his chosen university. He was busy, he was always either at the school courts practicing or in different states battling it out with other high schools, and I understood, seeing as he is the captain of the Liberty High basketball team, and he is their most valuable player. It’s his dream along with becoming a marine biologist, and who am I to get in the way of his dream. I’ll always be there for him, to support him, to help him, to encourage him whenever he feels down but I missed times like this, if I’m being honest, and these were the days where I could be selfish around him. What meant the most is that I still get to spend times like this with no one else, but him. He was mine, only mine, and I was his, only his.
“I really missed you.” I look up to face him.
“What? Babe you see me in school almost everyday.” he replies with a chuckle.
“Yes I do see you but I don’t get to actually spend much time with you since you’re always so busy.” I answer with a pout.
“I’m sorry Y/N. You know I have to do well to get a scholarship.” he says as he strokes my hair gently.
“Of course I understand Zach. We’ll just have to spend times like this wisely because we rarely get to be together like this. So what exactly do you want to do today? Do you have anything in mind?” I ask him. Just as Zach was about to reply, my phone which was resting on top of the coffee table, lit up. A person’s name came up on the screen and I got up immediately to answer it.
“I’m good, I missed you! How ‘bout you? How are you doing?”
“Uhm, nothing much I’m just with Zach right now.”
“Sure! Sure! He’ll understand. I’ll be there in 30 minutes.”
“Alright, yup, i’ll see you soon Helmet!”
I smile as I take the phone to my chest and run to Zach’s bathroom. As I freshened up, I can feel heavy footsteps coming closer to the bathroom door. A few seconds later, as I turn around, I see Zach’s tall figure leaning against the doorframe.
“Who was that?” he asks with his arms crossed infront of his chest.
“My helmet.” I reply without looking at him as I hurriedly tried to brush my teeth.
“What did he or she need?” he asks.
“He wanted to see me.” I answer as I got out of the bathroom.
“Why did he want to see you?” he asks once again.
“Because we miss each other?” I reply with a smile and my eyebrows raised.
“Where are you meeting each other?” Zach continues to ask.
“The coffee shop down the road.” I say as I put my jacket on and take my purse with me.
“I’ll go now baby, I’ll be back soon I promise.” I continue as I quickly give him a kiss on his cheek.
I run out of Zach’s house and walk my way to the coffee shop. As soon as I saw the wooden sign of the cafe, I went in immediately with a huge smile on my face. And there he was! He sat at the seats near the glass window in front of the coffee shop with a navy blue hoodie on; a pair of headphones hanging on his neck.
