Kiss by coralreefskim

“Keith,” Lance slurred, so it sounded more like he was saying Keef instead.

“What,” Keith said flatly, not really asking, as he jogged over to Red, eyes glowing yellow into life.

“You have stars in your eyes.”

Keith choked. “What?”

“Why do you have stars in your eyes?” Lance murmured.

ft low key mutual pining and bad pick up lines

high tide, incoming by kojondo

It starts like this:

They’re sitting across from each other at a table in the local burger joint, tossing casual banter and the occasional insult back and forth. It’s familiar and comfortable, reminiscent of every other conversation they’ve ever had, until out of nowhere Lance leans forward and says with a mouth full of fries, “Let’s date.”

okaty okay okay the beginning of this fic is really really good. and pining keith is always a good thing. and the ending was just so damn soft. and the comparisons to the ocean were so well done. I LOVE COMPARISONS

anonymous asked:

Hello, can I ask for Akira, Yusuke, Ryuji liking someone that's just kind of oblivious to flirting and romantic gestures. Like they're the "if you drop me a hint, I will pick it up and give it right back to you without understanding" type person. I mean they're only just bad at understanding when someone likes them and thinks it's just close friendship. Hope that's fine, thank you!

That’s so tragic lol. Thank you for the request! I hope you like it!


Akira:

  • Akira’s a natural flirt, so he drops hints and makes innuendos all the time.
  • “Should I hold your hand? It’s looks kind of cold.”
  • S/O simply says, “No thank you. It’s kind of you to offer though.”
  • He isn’t fazed one bit. In fact, he approaches it as a challenge or a game, testing out how far he can go before S/O understands. 
  • He’ll brush their hair behind their ear and whisper into it, “You should be careful. Someone might just whisk you away for looking so cute.”
  • “Thank you for warning me. I’ll be on my guard,” they reply seriously.
  • The entire power of the universe was required to hinder him from kissing S/O on the spot. 
  • He becomes quite daring after that. One evening, the two agreed to purchase hot chocolate from a nearby street vendor; it was winter, and their breath was visible in the chilly air when they ordered their beverages. 
  • S/O excitedly sipped their freshly-made cocoa, and some whipped cream fastened itself on the corner of their lips. you know what happens next
  • Akira chuckles and wipes the cream with his thumb. He proceeded to thrust his thumb in his mouth and suck on it, never breaking eye contact with S/O the entire time.
  • S/O wore a baffled expression as they stated, “Thank you for the gesture, but that was very unsanitary. I’ll go fetch us some napkins.” He smirked as they departed, and he patiently awaited their return. 
  • “Why don’t we take a ride on the Ferris wheel?” The smirk remained plastered on his face while he asked. S/O agreed and they hastily boarded the ride upon arriving.  
  • Akira sits so close to them that their shoulders brush together.
  • “S/O,” he suddenly says. When they face him, his face is inches away from theirs. “Will you let me be your boyfriend?”
  • Realization hit S/O like a ton a bricks, and Akira’s lips twitched upward in satisfaction as he witnessed the blush manifesting on S/O’s cheeks.
  • “U-u-um, yes, that would be nice,” they said, averting their eyes away from him.
  • Akira snickers and gently takes hold of S/O’s chin, making them face him again. “I’ve been wanting to do this for a while now.”
  • He lightly flicked their forehead.


Ryuji:

  • Ryuji was utterly frustrated. 
  • Here he was, dropping some of his best one-liners with a rosy tint on his face, and S/O had the audacity to remain so adorably oblivious.
  • “I-I really like you,” he stuttered to them, after assembling all of his courage.
  • “Aw, I like you too, Ryuji!” S/O replied.
  • Ryuji beamed, but his face quickly morphed into suspicion when he asked, “Whaddaya mean by that?” 
  • “Huh? You’re just a lot of fun and you’re a great friend.”
  • Friend.
  • Awakening to his Persona paled in comparison to how much pain he felt hearing S/O say that word.
  • “Ryuji? Are you okay? Do you need to use the restroom?”
  • Good idea, maybe I’ll flush myself down the toilet while I’m at it since I feel like shit. 
  • “N-nah, I’m fine. Thanks,” he squeaked. “H-hey, do you wanna come with me to the park later?”
  • “Sure! Does six work for you?”
  • “Yeah, that’s cool. See ya later!”
  • The two ‘friends’ meet up and stroll around, discussing numerous subjects and exchanging anecdotes.
  • They took a seat on the bench by the lake, and Ryuji spotted a couple holding hands and pecking each other on the lips.
  • Grateful that the darkness hid his ferocious blush, he nudged S/O and nodded in the direction of the couple. “D-do ya think we could do that?”
  • “We could, but we’re not dating,” S/O casually answered.
  • “…Can we change that?”
  • S/O was also grateful to the darkness for disguising their flushed cheeks. “Y-you mean it?”
  • “Y-yeah…” He waiting for the rejection when…
  • “T-that would be amazing.”
  • Ryuji.exe has stopped working
  • “C-cool! S-so uh…” He swiftly pecked S/O on their lips, and the couple couldn’t even look at each other as they continued their walk holding hands.


Yusuke:

  • Yusuke is extremely clueless himself; he’s clueless that they’re clueless.
  • S/O accepted his invitations for dates, and they permit him to embrace them when the two are alone in his dorm.
  • When they visited him in his dorm once again, he pulled them into a hug and whispered, “I have missed you, my love.”
  • S/O pulls back and laughs in his face. “Why are you acting like we’re dating? Did one of your friends tell you that we were? I swear, just because we’re close…”
  • Their voice became a distant fuzz, and Yusuke felt his soul disassemble on a molecular level.
  • This is too cruel to be a joke.
  • “You’re so gullible sometimes, Yusuke. I really worry about you…”
  • “U-um yes. I apologize. I will try to… read between the lines more often,” he replied, barely concealing the disappointment in his voice.
  • How had he not realized it sooner? He felt like such a fool.
  • “You look awful… did something happen?” S/O’s eyebrows furrowed with concern, and the urge to kiss them was overwhelming.
  • “P-please, there’s no need for distress. I’m all right, just a bit… drained.”
  • “Is there anything I can do to help?”
  • Yes.
  • “No. I’m fine, I assure you,” he said with a sigh.
  • S/O stayed with him for a bit; they tried to make him laugh from their outrageous ideas, and paid him a plethora of compliments.
  • When they were making their exit, their hand had just grabbed the doorknob when Yusuke spoke. “S/O. I’m sorry to further take your time, but I’ve been meaning to ask you something.”
  • S/O turned around questioningly. “What’s wrong?”
  • He took a deep breath and his cheeks glowed with a peachy hue. “I would be interested in furthering my relationship with you… as your romantic partner. Will you accept?” you could have just said you want to be their boyfriend
  • S/O is speechless, and Yusuke nearly has a panic attack until they say, “I… would love nothing more.”
  • Art boy has died and went to heaven.
  • The blush crept back on his cheeks as he beamed and exclaimed, “Wonderful!”
Roommate! Jimin

Originally posted by jiyoongis

- you moved to Seoul for college and got blessed with an apartment with an extra room but it was proving to be hard to pay the rent with your part-time job at the ramen shop down the street and also trying to study to be a marine biologist so you decided that you needed a roommate

- you put out an ad in the newspaper and started getting calls so you interviewed a couple of people and ultimately chose Jimin as your roommate

-he went to your school and seemed like a generally sweet and responsible person so you gave him your spare room in exchange for his half of the rent and a promise to clean up after himself

-Jimin was majoring in dance and was almost always in baggy shorts, a sleeveless t-shirt, and a snapback but ur here for that aesthetic

- he was the most considerate roomie you had ever had, he would cook for you, let you take showers first, and always picked up after himself and you were really grateful that you chose him

- he managed to get a job at the cafe across from your work as a barista and he would always come home smelling like coffee and pastries

- you quickly learned that he loved to sing and he would sing anytime and anywhere, you would hear him singing in the shower, while doing the dishes, while cooking, and you didn’t mind because he has a very nice voice and you support him

- he would always have Taehyung or Jungkook over but he would try to keep them away from you because he knew that his friends were kinda crazy

- jimin and you grew pretty close because you both would try to eat meals together if you were free or you would always have nights where you would watch the latest drama on tv together in ur pjs and cute domestic stuff like that

- you generally weren’t a very touchy person and would hate when you were cuddled or hugged by someone else but you made an exception for jimin because he is just so nice and soft and you can’t get annoyed when he always is touching your arm when you talk or cuddling you while you watch tv together

-sometimes when you were sad he would have you cuddle with him and he would sing softly in your ear to comfort you because he doesn’t like seeing you sad and he understands how hard life can be sometimes and really he wants to protect you from it

-he would come back from school still kinda practicing his dance moves and he would try to get you to join him because your sitting on the couch working on marine biology homework while he’s trying to waltz by himself acting all pouty but ur like “jimin I’m sorry but I’ve gotta finish my homework because this is due at midnight and it’s 11:20!!!” and he’s like “but y/n,, this is MY homework and it needs to be perfect” and pouts until you finally finish then he jumps up and you two are clumsily waltzing at midnight to no music in celebration of you finishing ur hw but then you realize “jimin I thought you trained in modern dance,,, not classical why are we waltzing??” And he’s like “omg I forgot?? This is the wrong dance??? Oh! NOO!”

-somehow despite jimin you actually become friends with taehyung because he is a zoology major and you would see each other in ur regular biology class so y'all start sitting next to each other and just generally hanging out but you didn’t think that jimin would care until one day that he comes home and is like “HEARD YOU WERE HANGING OUT WITH TAEHYUNG YESTERDAY” “NO JIMIN ITS NOT WHAT YOU THINK!!” *jimin pulls out a watergun* “I WONT HESITATE BITCH” then he proceeds to shoot you with a water gun because he feels completely and utterly betrayed rip poor boy

-after that you would start to have his friends over a bit more because he knew that you were comfortable around them and he encouraged you to start bringing your friends over

-you have like three really close friends then you really just had people that you were friendly with but they started to come over and hang out with you and jimin but sometimes you both would have days that you just wanted to hang out with each other so on those days you’d make dinner together or order takeout and just talk about stuff together like what your likes and dislikes are and how work and school is going for the both of you and somehow that leads to cuddling on the couch at 3am talking about your entire childhood until you fall asleep like that and wake up like noon the next day in each other’s arms and now you know each other a lot more

- he would try to go to your work when he knew that you had had a long day and try to cheer you up by picking you up a coffee from the cafe that he works at across from your work and honestly when you’d been up since 6am to go to a biology class and had to work from 4-10pm he was a gift from god himself

-he’d walk into your work and shyly make sure that you weren’t busy and if you were he’d just wait patiently near the front of the shop watching you serve ramen to random customers until you could have a free moment for him to pinch your cheeks and give you your cappuccino to cheer you up, but if he saw that you weren’t going to be free any time soon he would give your coffee to the ajjumah that was your boss and ask her to give it to you for him

-later when your boss gives you your coffee she compliments you on choosing such a fine man to have as your boyfriend because “nno it’s not like that oh my g-” “honey let me tell you I’ve been alive longer than you and I’d think I’d be able to tell two kids in love” then you just choke on your spit oh no

-you two basically act like a married couple who have never kissed and like you love each other but ur both like “it’s just best friend love?? Omg no” but like everybody knows that it’s not

-so like at one point you both get really drunk because midterm exams are finally over and you both are mentally and physically exhausted so you decided to stay in and get drunk and you’re and existential drunk and he’s a cuddly drunk so you’re basically crying about how little you are in comparison to the universe while jimin is attached to you like a koala and like you’re really upset with how much you don’t matter and crying in jimins chest and jimin is two inches from ur face like “shh I know that you don’t matter to the universe you you matter so much to me and ur my entire world so that’s that stop bein sad okay!!”

-then you just kinda fall asleep with ur face in jimins neck laying on the floor because you both are hot messes when you get drunk and you wake up the next day with a killer headache, feeling like you had someone sitting on your chest, and when you open ur eyes you just see jimins hair and you feel that he is quite literally wrapped around you and you really can’t do anything about it and you would normally be very annoyed at the situation but there’s something cute about the way that he’s latched on you and you can hear his soft snoring and feel him breathing against your collarbones and it’s all so soft that it’s a lot to take in so you close your eyes again and try to fall back asleep

-but now your hearts beating too fast and your face is red and you feel him start to wake up because he starts to lift himself off of you but you get really cold so you pull him back down so you would continue to have his body heat and he giggles a little and nuzzles into your neck and then he lifts his head up to meet yours at the same time that you do and you “accidentally” kiss but honestly it feels as natural as breathing because you both are already so comfortable with each other but you do kinda regret the circumstances later because it’s such a wild story to explain to your friends about how you two finally had your first kiss

-you two start going out as an official couple and all of your friends are not surprised at all and you have him move into your room because you like to sleep in the same bed together but now you have an extra room so your friends start fighting over who gets to be the new roommate

-you and jimin take pity on taehyung and choose him because he was living in a 3 bedroom apartment with 6 other boys and he offered you his firstborn for the room

A/n: I got the inspiration for this after watching jimin in the Beautiful dance practice video because honestly what a look I’m shaking bc like I love Jimin so much?? Also here’s a link to my masterlist so you can check out my other little scenarios!!

Sleepover

“i was hoping you could write something where like, you have a bestfriend for a long time and you always insult eachother and joke around A LOT until you let him spend the night and you both start complimenting eachother and get all flustered and he ends up awkwardly trying to kiss you and etc. ( the more blushing and awkwardness, the better )”

This person messaged me to give extra details, which you can totally do because it’s easier for me to write! I combined it with this request cause I thought they fit well together:

“Could u make one when ur walking out of school to go home + u literally bump into him + he decides to walk u since ur houses r in the same direction + when u get to ur house u invite him in + watch a movie, cuddle, kiss and cute fluffy stuff happen😊”

Word count: 2.9k


You watch the clock on the wall, counting down the seconds until the bell rings. It’s the last period of the day on Friday, and right now the second hand is the only thing standing in between you and the sweet freedom of the weekend. 5…4…3…2…1… the bell goes off at last and you jump up and exit the classroom before the teacher can assign last minute homework.

Once you have all your things and you’ve waved goodbye to your friends, you push open the front doors of the school and step out, breathing in the crisp air with a smile. Ahhh, Fridays. Like the tasty dessert after an unpleasant meal. You adjust your backpack straps and start walking home, thinking about what you’ll do with your weekend.

The sidewalk makes a right angle and you cut the corner a bit, walking across the grass. As your feet hit concrete again, something slams into you and you fall over.

“What the-” you look up, trying to identify your attacker. An outstretched hand descends from the sky, and behind it, there is a concerned face saying “Sorry, sorry, sorry!” It’s your best friend and crush, (c/n).

You grab his hand and let him pull you up, brushing the dirt off your butt. “Thanks for that,” you say sarcastically.

“Sorry!” he says one more time, hands held up defensively. “But I must say, it’s your fault for walking right in front of me like that. I don’t have the best reflexes when I’m on a moving bike,” he adds, reaching down to pick up the fallen bike in question.

You laugh. “My bad, you’re probably right. Bike is okay?”

He pats the bike and nods. “Better question is, are you?”

“Yeah I think I’m good,” you reply, pretending to check for broken ribs. “Bones are all intact.” You flash him a smile and start walking forward again.

“Fantastic,” he says, walking his bike beside you. “Heading home?”

“Yes, I’m very excited to veg out in front of the TV for several hours.”

“Same,” he agrees. “Why don’t I walk you home, to make sure you don’t get yourself into any more accidents?”

“See, the problem with that logic is you’re the reason I fell over in the first place,” you point out. Plus your house is on the way to his anyway, but you decide not to mention that.

(C/n) thinks about this for a second. “I guess you could say you…fell for me?” He grins charmingly.

You clap a hand over your mouth to keep from laughing. “Wow, we really need to work on your pickup lines,” you tease. Of course, you secretly think it’s cute as hell, and you have no problem with being on the receiving end of said cheesy pickup lines. That won’t stop you from giving him a hard time, though.

“Are you suggesting you’re better at this than I am?” He arches an eyebrow in a silent challenge.

“Definitely,” you say confidently.

“Alright then, impress me with your flirting skills.”

“Okay, get ready for this cause you’re gonna be blown away.” You smile and flip your hair for extra effect. “Are you a fire alarm? Cause you’re loud and annoying,” you finish, smirking at his expression as he processes what you said.

“That was not a pickup line!” he protests.

“Well, it was true!” you tease.

He shakes his head disapprovingly. “This is why you’re still single.”

“Hey!” You punch him in the arm. “Like you’re any less single than I am.”

“Fair enough,” he concedes.

“And I think I should warn you that you can’t get girls by running them over,” you advise sagely. “Generally not considered very romantic.”

“Really, cause that’s what I’d call making the first move!” he jokes.

You sigh. “Hopeless. Absolutely hopeless.”

You arrive in front of your house, but hesitate before walking up to the door. You don’t want to stop talking to (c/n). “Hey, (c/n), uhh…you wanna come in for a bit?” You bite your lip nervously.

(C/n) grins. “Okay, sure.”

He parks his bike against the side of your house and then follows you through the front door.

“Are you hungry?” you ask him as he looks around the house, taking everything in. He nods absentmindedly. You search through the kitchen for something worth feeding (c/n). After a minute or so you emerge from the pantry with a bag of microwaveable popcorn, and hold it up, shaking it up and down. “Popcorn?”

(C/n) looks up. “Perfect.”

You put the bag in the microwave, which emits a chorus of pops. (C/n) comes over, making popping noises with his mouth. You laugh at him. “You weirdo.”

“Dude, we should totally watch a movie,” he says suddenly as you pull the finished popcorn out of the microwave. “We’ve already got the popcorn, haven’t we?”

You shrug nonchalantly, hiding your eagerness to spend two plus hours with (c/n). “Why not, it is Friday after all.” You lead him down to the basement and plop down on the couch in front of the TV. He sits next to you, close enough that your thighs touch. As you open Netflix, he puts an arm around your shoulders. “Netflix and chill?” he asks, wiggling his eyebrows.

You laugh. “You’re still not cute. Getting warmer though!” You scroll through the available movies, conscious that (c/n)’s arm hasn’t left your shoulders.

“Let’s watch a horror movie,” (c/n) suggests, jiggling his leg excitedly. You can feel it against your leg. You groan. “God no, I’ll be screaming in your ear the whole time.”

He shrugs. “I can take it.” He grins. “I’ll protect you from the scary monsters,” he says teasingly.

“Okay, fine,” you relent, sighing. You have to admit that watching a horror movie with your crush protecting you doesn’t sound like the worst thing in the world. You come across the movie Sinister. “Is this a good one? Looks pretty scary,” you say.

“Hell yes. Hit play.” You start the movie and settle back against the couch. (C/n)’s arm is still around you.

The movie starts out tamely enough, with Ethan Hawke’s friendly puppy face and nothing particularly terrifying. You eat your popcorn contentedly, your hands occasionally bumping into (c/n)’s. After a little while you rest your head on his shoulder, and he doesn’t object. You smile, knowing that he usually hates physical contact and would push anyone else away.

It doesn’t take long for things to take a turn for the scarier, however. Some scenes, you just know something is coming, and tense up as the suspense builds. (C/n)’s arm tightens around you in response, pulling the two of you closer each time. Other times there are completely unexpected jump scares, and as predicted, you scream loudly every time.

At one particularly bad jump scare where the demon Bughuul suddenly appears in the garden, you screech in terror and hide your face in (c/n)’s shirt. He chuckles and you feel his arms go around you, shielding you from the outside world. “Wow, you weren’t kidding,” he says, as though impressed by how scared you are. You peek up at him to see him looking down at you in amusement. “How are you so unaffected?” you ask him, bewildered at his completely calm demeanor.

“Nothing can faze me,” he says proudly.

“Ooh, you’re so manly,” you say sarcastically. “What happens when I do this?” You tickle his sides, and he shrieks. You laugh hysterically at his reaction.

As he recovers he points to the screen. “Okay, let’s pay attention, we already missed an important plot point!”

You oblige, sitting up a little but still leaning partially into him, his arms still lazily encircling you.

A while later the movie draws to a very dramatic close. You breathe out as the camera pans out on the box of films, the excitement seemingly over. But right before the end of the movie, Bughuul’s face suddenly pops up. You scream again and dive into the safety of (c/n)’s shirt, wrapping your arms tightly around his chest. You feel him shaking with laughter under you. “You’re such a wimp,” he teases.

You flip him off without lifting your head. You’re very comfortable and not about to move. (C/n)’s heart is beating right by your ear. When he chuckles it rumbles in his chest. “I don’t mind, it makes me look tougher by comparison,” he adds jokingly.

You get an idea, and sit up a little bit. “Hey (c/n).”

“Hmm?”

“Wanna sleep over?”

“Really?” He starts to smile.

“Yeah.”

“Okay, let me run home and get my stuff.” He tries to get up but you’re still lying on his chest.

“Don’t leave,” you whine, “just call your mom.”

He laughs and moves a strand of hair behind your ear. “I live like practically next door, it’ll only take a second.” He tries to stand again. “Get up, you lazy ass.”

You roll away, grumbling. Already feeling sleepy, you don’t move as he goes upstairs and leaves your house. Your eyes close and you lie still, waiting for him to return.

You wake maybe fifteen minutes later to (c/n) shaking you. “(Y/n)! Did you seriously fall asleep?”

You rub your eyes. “Wha-” (C/n)’s concerned face comes into focus. “Maybe you should go to bed right away,” he suggests.

“No!” You jump up, fighting the sudden dizziness and trying to act awake. “No way, not before dinner.”

He grins. “And what is dinner, exactly?”

You ponder this. “Takeout? What do you want?”

“Chinese,” he decides. You nod in agreement. “Good call.”

Half an hour later you’re sitting criss cross on the basement floor across from (c/n), with rice, dumplings, chicken and noodles between you. As you feast, you tell stories.

“Okay, your turn. Most embarrassing moment,” you challenge him.

“Oh, god.” (C/n) groans and covers his face with his hands, laughing slightly. “Oh man.”

“This is gonna be good.” You rub your hands together excitedly.

He makes a pained face and sighs in resignation. “Okay. So picture this. I’m like 10 or 11, sitting in class, nervous as hell cause I’m about to give a presentation. Funny thing is, I have no idea what it was about. I think I was so traumatized I forgot.”

“Go on,” you encourage him, not without a hint of sadistic enjoyment.

“So the teacher calls me up to present and I walk up to the front of the room. I almost fall over cause my legs are shaking so much. But I make it up there anyway. And then…I totally freeze up and just stand there, staring out at the class.” He winces at the memory.

“Dude, that’s not that bad,” you say, a little disappointed.

“Oh no, it’s not over yet,” he replies grimly. “As I stand there paralyzed, I feel something warm on my leg…” (C/n) grabs a nearby pillow and hides his face in it. His muffled voice comes out: “I peed my pants in front of the entire class.”

You burst out laughing. He removes the pillow and glares at you. His face is red, which only makes you laugh harder. He throws the pillow at your head. “Stop laughing at me!”

“Okay, okay.” You stifle a last giggle. “Honestly that wasn’t even that bad,” you reassure him after a moment.

“Oh really, have you done it too?” (C/n) grins and raises an eyebrow at you. It’s your turn to throw the pillow at him. “No way!” you say, laughing. Then you notice the pillow landed in the noodles. “Whoops.”

“Okay, I think that’s our cue to clean up,” (c/n) decides.

You put all the leftovers in the fridge and clear away the plates. After you kill a couple of hours playing video games, you decide to set up your sleeping bags so you can lie in bed and talk for several more hours.

You lay them down side by side and climb into them, facing each other. You’ve put on your pajamas, which consist of shorts and a camisole, and quickly realize that the air conditioned basement and thin sleeping bag are a bad combination. After a couple minutes you start shivering.

(C/n) notices and frowns. “You’re cold,” he says.

“Oh, nah, I’m fine,” you deny weakly. “It’s like a sauna in here.”

“Yeah, right, I can practically hear your teeth chattering. Come here.” He beckons with his finger.

You scoot closer to him like a large worm wriggling sideways. He smiles. “Just get in here,” he says, pointing into his sleeping bag.

You giggle nervously. “In there? With you?” Your face is suddenly warm even though you still feel cold.

“Yeah, there’s plenty of room,” he says, opening up the sleeping bag to show you. “And it’s very thick and veerry comfortable.” He grins.

“Okay, if you say so,” you respond casually, though inside of course you’re totally freaking out. You unzip your bag and clamber over to his, sliding inside. Immediately (c/n) puts his arms around you and pulls you into him, pressing you close against him. You can feel his skin against your bare arms. Warmth radiates from his body.

“Wow, you’re really warm,” you whisper, already feeling the comfortable heaviness of sleep pressing in.

He smirks. “Told you.”

“Thanks for letting me invade your personal space,” you say jokingly.

He smiles. “My pleasure.” After a moment he adds, quite out of the blue, “You know, you have a really nice voice.”

“What?” You lift your head and look at him, furrowing your eyebrows.

You feel him shrug next to you. “Your voice. It’s just…really soft and soothing. When I hear it it’s like I’m being wrapped in a fluffy blanket. I could listen to you talk forever.” He shakes his head, smiling. “It’s like…listening to really good music. I don’t know.” He looks away, blushing.

“Oh, thanks…” you smile slightly. Your face feels warm and you wonder if you’re as red as he is. “I like your voice too.”

(C/n) starts stroking your hair lightly, which gives you chills (the good kind). After a moment he says quietly, “And your hair, too, it’s so soft, and like, perfect.”

You reach up and ruffle his adorably fluffy hair. “I like yours more.”

He chuckles, and even though you’ve turned the lights off you can tell his whole face is pink. “Honestly everything about you is perfect,” he whispers.

Your heart starts to race, and you’re close enough to feel his heart beating rapidly as well. “Really?” you whisper back, at a loss for words.

“Yeah.” He lifts a finger up to your mouth and softly traces your lips. You’re so nervous you couldn’t move if you wanted to, and you don’t.

(C/n) looks up at you and back at your mouth, and then leans in as if trying to kiss you. But you’re both still lying on your sides, and your noses bump awkwardly. You stifle a giggle. He laughs too and hides his face in your neck. Then he props himself up with one arm so he’s leaning over you, and for the second time, he brings his face to yours. This time, your lips connect.

You feel as though fireworks are going off around you. He strokes your face with one hand as he kisses you, and when you pull apart several seconds later, he’s staring intently into your eyes, as if he sees something inside them.

“(Y/n), I really like you,” he murmurs in a husky voice.

You reach up and play with a bit of his hair that’s sticking out, hardly able to believe this is happening. “I really like you too,” you whisper almost inaudibly.

(C/n) smiles. “Well, that works out nicely,” he says, and you laugh giddily. He kisses you on the forehead before settling back down next to you. He pulls you into him and you rest your head on his chest. You can feel his heart still beating fast, but after a few minutes it slows along with his breathing. Exhaustion settles heavily over you from the rough week at school, and wrapped comfortably in (c/n)’s arms, it doesn’t take you long to fall asleep.

so today I saw this thread on twitter that was about celebrating idols who are tan and very often whitewashed. For my surprise (actually not really because it’s always the same story), Sooyoung wasn’t included in it. And then this moment popped into my head, and I’ve been thinking about this all day tbqh:

I understand that Sooyoung isn’t as tan as yuri and other idols, but does that make it okay to ignore her struggles with this so often? It’s like she’s in this constant limbo where she’s not as dark skinned in comparison to others but then she’s also not as light skinned as some people want her to be. I know you guys are probably dead tired of hearing me speak about this, believe me, it’s not my favourite topic to talk about either. But it’s not okay to dismiss things like this, specally when so many people get so badly affected by it. And I still sometimes see some people whitewash her and it just really breaks my heart honestly. And it breaks my heart even more knowing that Sooyoung sometimes sees those pictures that people have edited. 

So

here’s

Sooyoung’s

Does anyone remember…a long time ago now, it seems…back in the summer of 2008 when a major MCU AND DC movie was released? I remember…it was the very first Iron Man movie and the now legendary Dark Knight. You know what I don’t remember? I don’t remember the anxiousness of critics and journalists to pit the two against each other. I don’t remember people going into one already ready to hate it because it didn’t have the same tone as the other. Now, I’m sure there were crazy fans who did this amongst themselves. I’m sure there were small isolated incidents at cons between fans, but we didn’t hear about them, because they were small and it didn’t represent the majority of fans of either franchise. I remember a time when fans could like both and maybe one a little more than the other, and that would be okay.

Do you guys remember when two Hulk movies failed, but they were allowed to fail quietly? No one put down Marvel in favor of DC? They just failed and that was it?

Do you guys remember a couple years after Iron Man and The Dark Knight came out, we were given another MCU and DC movie? The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises? Man, Marvel was more popular than ever before, it seemed, because of this big MCU release. The Dark Knight Rises was good, but just okay in comparison to The Dark Knight. That was fine, though, it didn’t really feel like a competition, and even some DC fans could happily admit that they enjoyed The Avengers more.

Do you guys remember when Man of Steel came out? Everyone was kind of cautiously optimistic since Superman Returns wasn’t well received. Man, I remember that despite positive reviews, some people seemed to be downright disgusted by it…but that disgust was tolerable for the most part…but then it was announced that Man of Steel would be the first of an extended film universe, and then suddenly, something magical happened. For some people…some rational people even…some smart people….it became impossible to like both the MCU and anything the DCEU made. These people had the incredible ability to hate something before it even existed. For some inexpiable reason, these people were able to tap into a secret…if you like something or are willing to give it fair criticism even if you don’t like it, the MCU will be no more. In order to keep our darling MCU alive, we must kill the DCEU….that means we must knit-pick the enemy. We must find every single thing wrong physically and morally with all that participate in the DCEU while ignoring the flaws of those in the MCU. We must watch all the DCEU trailers and complain how “dark” and “gritty” they look and complain louder when they appear less so while allowing the MCU to be whatever it wants. We must throw stones when a trailer even seems slightly similar to that of the MCU and claim that the DCEU is doomed and must resort to copying what makes the MCU successful. We must ignore the treatment of women and POC in the MCU and make up said problems for the DCEU. It is only the loudest most obnoxious critics who get this, the rest of us who happily enjoy what the DCEU has given us are the enemy and must be punished.

I just miss the old days when we could like one or the other with no consequence.

*sigh*

Picture Perfect Ch. 4

You buy Woojin a meal to express your gratitude, and you two get to know each other along the way.

special thanks to @wannaonescenarios for helping me w writing pls check her out her blog is amazing and her bf!aus are the best thing on this planet i squeal every tiem

Chapter 1 | Chapter 2 | Chapter 3


“Thanks for the ride, Baejin!” You smiled widely at your classmate, waving to him as you quickly got out of his car. As a gesture of gratitude, you’d offered to buy Park Woojin meat, and the only restaurant that his company allowed him to go to, due to their specialty in keeping paparazzi away and maintaining privacy, was all the way across the city, so you’d asked Jinyoung to drive you there.

The restaurant had a modern look to it, with sleek black walls and hardwood floors. Each booth was partitioned off, and you were quickly led by a waitress to where Woojin was already sitting.

You greeted him a bit awkwardly, not really knowing what to say. “Did you have to wait a long amount of time?” You asked him, taking a sip of your water.

“Ah, no,” Woojin shook his head, “I just got here.”

“That’s good,” you grabbed a menu, looking at it, “I wonder what’s good here? You’ve been here before, right?”

“Ah, yeah,” Woojin pointed to one of the pictures on the back of the menu. “The marinade they use for the bulgogi is really good, and our manager really likes their pajeon, if you like that.”

because talking about ag//nt c//rter is literally going to kill me one day, i’m gonna just copy and paste some points i made a while ago to answer everyone’s questions (w/ slight alterations and better organization

the racism:

- no woc in the main cast at any point in either season in a show meant to be about girl power or some shit

- no moc in the main cast in the first season

- erasure of gabe jones and peggy’s relationship with gabe jones

- jason was not only manipulated and dominated by a white woman, he also was made to seem evil, put in awkward disney-fied racism scenarios, postured as the lesser competitor in a godawful love triangle where he was the much better choice on nearly every fucking level including mirroring steve in a lotta ways, made intangible and had his voice taken away for too fuckin long goddamnit, was not chosen by peggy after aladatbuullllshit

- ana jarvis was shot, like….. yeah, shoot the jewish woman who escaped the n//zis…. that’s not wrong at all……

- the fandom/writers/showrunners tried manipulating woc into watching the show with hopes that s2 would be more diverse

- the same fandom then proceeded to be fucking awful to jason, the only ant in that bowl of milk

- the show taking place in two cities with large populations of color even in the 40s and yet still being white as a fucking toilet is, in fact, whitewashing

the romantic shit (sexism/homophobia/shit):

- erasure of angie in the second season along with her possible romantic relationship with peggy because being gay wasn’t invented yet or something

- sousa was just as sexist as the other men but, somehow, because he was a benevolent misogynist that’s enough for peggy to run into his arms

- why would peggy pick sousa? why would peggy pick sousa, who is engaged to one of her friends?? WHY IS HER FRIEND JUST OKAY WITH HER HUSBAND EMOTIONALLY CHEATING ON HER? BITCH IF THAT WAS MY ASS,

shit i just have an issue with:

- PEGGY’S MOTIVATION FOR ASS KICKING WAS HER DEAD BROTHER??? REALLY??? please stop

- the musical number

- !!!!!too much thompson!!!! and thompson was really just there to make sousa look better by comparison when sousa was also a, how do you say, dickhead?

- not enough dottie in the second season 

- there was no need for peggy to leave new york because the second season meant nothing, it was like j.o.n.a.s. la

- they had a black girl at howard’s house but didn’t utilize the fact that dominic has The Face™ 

add what you want

Okay okay okay but I really want ACOWAR from Cassian’s POV, like, how’s he reacting to nesta? What about all the tension between Azriel and Mor?? SARCASTIC COMMENTARY OF THE MEETING OF ALL THE HIGH LORDS! I love his character so much but he’s just not in the book that much in comparison to Feyre or Rhys I just really want this someone needs to do it

They were like Romeo and Juliet,
fated to fall in love.
Or maybe,
they were just fated to fall.

- the way star-crossed lovers always do. (k.b.)

amatusvanitas  asked:

For the "send me a ship" meme: do you have a favorite KH pairing, and if so, why? 😊

Can I cheat and say more than one? Because more than one.

Sokai: Ah yes the obviously canon pair. With unsatisfactory amount of screen time together and when one of the pair is on the sidelines… With such a fate why would I hardcore ship it the way I do? Because of the characters themselves. I shipped this when I first played the game because it was obvious to 7 year old me, but I began to dig into this couple when I replayed the Remixes and noticed more details. The driving force for me is the fact that this couple is that how fond they are for eachother. Every moment the two has for each other just makes me love them more because of how cute and wholesome they are. 

One of my favorite moments is the hug and the endgame for KH2. In the hug, Kairi really puts her heart into that hug because she finally can’t believe that Sora is right before her whom she almost forget even existed. She feels guilty and reassured with this. Sora on the other hand looks guilty because he promised Kairi he’d be back and obviously with Riku… But here he is not with Riku. To add up on it, he made her a wait a year and indirectly “forced” Kairi here in a dangerous place no less to look for him. He’s happy at the sight of her but this reunion wasn’t what Sora wanted for Kairi or deserved. Now flash forward to the end where Sora and Riku finally come back home. In that instance where Sora is running toward Kairi is where the real reunion happened for the both of them. Not only that but here he is, at the islands with Riku. This is their perfect reunion because they know the evil had been defeated (Oh little did they know) and their smiling faces don’t lie about how happy they are to see each other. Now tell me those looks don’t look like love.

Ahhh this is getting long and I kind of lost my train of thought. Basically speaking, their actions and intentions for each other make them a great couple. There is so much you can dig into them and see such support they have for eachother. Sokai is so healthy/cute/amazing and I’m just fangirling at this point. With many more amazing moments for them that it’s hard to describe into words since their actions speak miles.

Rikushi: Okay now this is a pairing I can put words for… probably. Now this is a pairing that I liked after seeing 358/2 days. Surprise Surprise a rarepair (Because they are sorely lacking in fanart even though they deserve more). After everything Xion goes through, she really falls back on a certain character in the latter half of the game which is Riku. And I don’t mean to say she values Riku higher than her best friends but that in this instance of serious struggle, Xion feels more security along him while she feels more comfortable with her friends. It’s at this point in time where Xion is treated as less of her own person by those around her, even Axel, and not letting her make decisions for her ownself. Riku, on the other hand, is going on a quest to make sure his best friend wakes up and will take any measures to ensure it. But even despite that, he gives Xion time and more importantly, respect to make a hard choice, even as it’s cutting close to Sora’s time. Xion as well, makes sure not to betray Riku’s trust and respect in her for the same reason that she respects his goal and aim. They also have many great parallels and similar personality traits that they’d be compatible. Hell they could understand each other probably more than the person that they aim to save which are Sora and Roxas. An easy strike against this pairing is that Riku is doing this because he’s reminded of Kairi and Sora within her… which is not wrong but also wrong. In the beginning he does view her as that but the finale of 358/2 days is what convinces me that’s no longer the case. It’s the fact that Riku is still able to remember Xion and more importantly he realizes what she has done. He knows she sacrificed herself for herself, Sora, and Roxas who Xion also knows/believes will go back to Sora. With Xion’s, quite literally, dying words for him to stop Roxas, I believe this strengthens his resolve on bringing back Roxas to Sora. As such he embraces the darkness once more. At the very end, Riku sees Xion for her at the very end as her own person with her own wants and wishes. This in my opinion separates the full comparison of Sora and Kairi the whole time.

-breathes out- Okay that was too lengthy, just know that I love this pair a lot and they would be a great couple. Like people give this love and realize what a great pairing this could be.

RokuNami: Okay where do I go with this couple? Aesthetically HD Pleasing and amazing singing voice actors *cough* okay pairing wise. These two may at first seem like “clones” of Sora and Kairi but they really aren’t and they know that perfectly well for each other. Namine, the moment she stepped into this world, was alone. Not only that but she was controlled as well without having a sense of control for herself. Even in KH2 Namine is still under the control of someone as harsh as DiZ in that small white room. Although she later cherishes Axel and Riku as companions (according to the kh2 novels), Namine knows that she is a witch being kept around walls. And then comes Roxas who perks her curiosity. She sees his memories and relates to him and the feeling of being kept in the dark to which Roxas has suffered intensely from. That is the connection to which Namine feels the “want” to meet Roxas even though she shouldn’t deserve anything since she is a witch as she is constantly been described as. In this, Namine takes more steps for her and also to help Roxas. She also decides that Roxas deserves the truth which is all Roxas ever wanted from the latter half of 358/2 Days. And Namine gave it to him, no sugarcoat at all or bias at all. I believe Roxas greatly senses this within Namine as well and can relate to her in his fleeting summer days. At that point, Roxas knows something is up and that Namine is giving him answers when she really shouldn’t be. It could be fair to say that out of the four he met in the real world(Axel, DiZ, Riku, and Namine) he would choose her first and foremost. These two are honest to god cinnamon rolls and they have similar traits such as being self sacrificing and compassionate. In all honesty, they set out a groundwork for a truly cute (also hurt/comfort) couple. Hopefully we can see more of them in KH3 possibly because they don’t have much screentime. One thing is sure though, they have an unbreakable trust and are super freaking cute and are happy to have each other.

(1/?) Okay imma say this here since my blog is SFW, but I've noticed something in a lot of top!dean/Bottom!Cas docs that irks me a lot. They always infantilize Castiel. Make him pale and frail and weak. He's a fucking angel of the lord. Misha is buff as hell. And fairly tan too. He is strong and powerful, and I hate seeing this stripped from him in a lot of these kinds of fics. Yeah, he's kinda dorky and socially awkward, but he's also intelligent and STRONG

(2/?) One thing I enjoy about top!Cas/bottom!dean fics is that they don’t take away Dean’s strength, his cockiness, his attitude. They /use/ it. I like seeing big tough Dean grinning as he’s pushed against the wall (Like he was in the PILOT EPISODE except that was a car), getting all blushy and excited when ‘sexy rules’ were mentioned, and was pushed down onto the bed by the amazon. He remains strong and protective, but Cas is always weak and soft when he was bottom and it drives me crazy.

(3/?) And when it comes to children, especially mpreg AUs, Cas is shown as the mother figure more often. Why? Dean was a mother to Sam, Dean had been shown to be GREAT with children, and likes spending time with them. And are we forgetting the scene when he was making the bunker his home and literally said he was nesting?? Cas is awkward and confused around children, but that’s not his own fault. Cas had Jimmy’s memories, he knows how to be a father, and he learned about a father’s love from him


My dear stressed Nonnie, one more time, I am so sorry I made you feel like you need to apologize fdvbdfjs. Back to your message: 

1/? - I agree so much. I tend to avoid fics with this kind of characterization because I personally don’t like it.
I mean, I am quite okay when Cas is pale and weakened because of something that happened in the fic - like because of an illness or maybe substance abuse, or anything, really. It would be logical and make perfect sense.
But I dislike it greatly when it’s only because he’s ‘the bottom’ in the relationship and people feel the need to make him look smaller/paler/tinier/more feminine in comparison to Dean. I mostly don’t like this portrayal of Cas in fics that are set in canon verse - but that’s just my personal opinion. And Nonnie, you know what I also don’t - personally -  like? When Cas is written as completely naive, like, uh, that makes me nope out from a fic pretty quickly. 

I absolutely adore the fact that Cas is powerful, tall,  beautifully tan, with shoulders and arms that can lift even my self-confidence. He’s so handsome, and like his hands? Big strong hands that turned monsters to ashes?? His beautiful thighs? Why to take this away? 
I love that about Cas that he’s this ancient being that can destroy cities and he still can be so soft and gentle. He can touch with such tenderness, smile with such warmth and I just??? There is absolutely no need to take away some parts of him to enjoy the other. You can literally have both. Cas is a complicated character, you don’t need to reduce him to some stereotypes based on some weird views on sex positions. 
And I will repeat it again - I like bottom!Cas. I prefer bottom!Dean but I like bottom Cas too.
But I like it when he’s still Cas, not some meek pale version of himself. 
And again, that what I, as in me, Emilia aka bamf-castiel on tumblr dot com, like.
Personally. Others can enjoy whatever they want to.

2/? - again, I agree so much with this! I - again, personally - love it so much! Dean is still very much himself, and I always get few years added to my lifespan when I see it.
I love Dean so much, I love Cas so much. I am so happy when in fics they both are described ans strong and as themselves. Those are my absolute fave kind of fics. And I know those are not the same but I do see Dean and low key submissive, and it’s so lovely? He’s such a rough tough guy, he’s fierce and protective and loves so deeply. I enjoy it greatly when people explore the other parts of his character, I love it when Cas takes care of him and Dean lets him. 
I like it when they are both soft with each other, too. They deserve the gentleness and the softness. But yes, I agree, there is a hug difference how bottom!Dean and bottom!Cas are usually portrayed in this fandom. 
( again, I say this based on the fics I stumbled across - I have not read everything, and I have read things that differ from this, I don’t mean to generalize and hurt anyone’s feeling. Plus you have every right to enjoy whatever characterization you want) 

3/? - I don’t think I’ve read enough fics with mpreg to have an opinion about it, but I guess I agree? I mean both of them have character traits usually associated with mother/father figures. 
I think that I see Dean more of a mother figure than I see Cas as one though. 

Everyone can enjoy whatever they can, but yeah, looking on canon I agree with you here Nonnie.
But that’s just my opinion, of course. 
Thank you for the message! <3

anonymous asked:

hi! How are you?😊 I'm just wondering if you have any really good book recommendations? thanks!

Hi Nonny!

Oh gosh, I haven’t read a book in a very long time – I mostly read fan fiction these days! I think the last hard-copy book I read was some young adult fiction about witches which was really good. Though I do have some ultimate fave books that have still stuck with me all these years and I still fondly remember them:

  • Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman: I read this in high school on a whim; the library JUST got it, and I was the first person to borrow it, and I took it because I liked the cover. I was hooked. I don’t remember ALL of the book, but I do know I enjoyed it and probably would read it again. As an aside, I’ve read a LOT of Gaiman’s books. I LOVE THEM. I think Neverwhere is just the one that sticks with me because it was my first Gaiman novel.
  • Official Red Dwarf Novels: Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers, Better Than Life, Last Human, and Backwards by Grant / Naylor: OMG if you love Red Dwarf, you will ADORE these books. They’re essentially AU fan fictions written by the official showrunners / writers, Rob Grant and Doug Naylor. Seriously, they’re written in the same universe, but slight alterations are made enough that it’s literally an AU of the series, so much so that by the third book it is an alternate reality. I wish they would write more. Grant and Naylor are so clever.
  • The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold: The movie really REALLY sucks in comparison to this book; it did not capture it at all. It’s from the POV of a young girl who was murdered, and how the people around her are affected, including her family who are attempting to solve her murder. CW / TW for rape / murder / death / paedophilia – it’s just background stuff relating to the main character’s murderer.
  • The Inkheart Trilogy by Cornelia Funke: OH MY GOD. Okay, I read the first book because of the movie. AND HOLY SHIT IT IS SO MUCH BETTER, so much so to the point that… I don’t really like the movie that much anymore. Seriously, they changed SO MUCH in the movie, and this book is SO good. After I finished the first book, I went out and bought the other two books in the trilogy. I couldn’t put it down. Seriously, it’s a bit meta, and I love it. Read it especially if you love fantasy. Ink Spell is my favourite of the three.

Yeah, so those are what has stuck with me. I have SO MANY BOOKS to still read, but I just can’t tear myself away from Johnlock fanfics, LOL.

okay but

I don’t Discourse, but I get so angry when people dismiss asexual’s people’s problems as something like “Boohoo, you don’t want to fuck, no one gives a shit”.

But it’s so much more than that. Obviously it’s not homophobia, never was and never will be. It doesn’t even compare, it’s not the same thing at all. 

But there are issues asexual people face like - there is pressure, part of it from society, and a lot of it come for ourselves. And that kind of self-hate and self-loathing and thinking you’re broken and unloveable, developping unhealthy sexual behaviour and self-harm - it’s a thing, it’s definitely a thing, not something 14-year-old kids on tumblr made up for attention. It can really mess you up, mess your relationships up, and people are so afraid to talk about it - I read words of older people - and I don’t mean people my age, I mean people in their 50s, their 60s - probably they don’t even know asexuality is even a thing, they got married and had kids and always felt wrong, because they hate sex and they never wanted it and never felt comfortable around it but they did it, quietly, never said a fucking word, and hated themselves a bit more every single time because they never understood why they felt they were missing what they were always told was supposed to be a fundamental part of themselves. They spent their entire life thinking they were broken.

and. it’s not homophobia, it’s not bigotry from an entire society keeping you from jobs and housing, etc. there’s no stats or anything. And maybe a lot of non-asexual people relate to this self-loathing, too. Things are never completely clear cut - there is always some overlapping. It doesn’t make it any less important. It’s still a thing that most asexual people go through, at least for part of their life, and it can really, really mess someone up. And there’s no need to get into discourse or into any (useless and frankly asinine) comparisons - it just needs to be taken seriously for what it is, because people’s health and happiness are what’s at play and it matters, too.

LF RP CONNECTIONS & (maybe) AN FC

Hi! I’m pretty new on the Balmung scene, (read as I just name changed, level and story boosted, and fantasia’d an alt character I had on Balmung into a new character,) but I’d love to find some connections with the release of Stormblood and The Steppe!

This is Ochigin Iriq, but he’s really a Moks at heart. Not a boy given up by the Borlaaq tribe, but rather born into the Iriq tribe, he spent much of his youth upon the Steppe. His parents are also Moks, and I’d love some connections with regards to that. Some other Moks who he’s met and exchanged messages with, maybe?

Other connections I’m looking for for Ochigin include things like friends from the Steppe and Eorzea, people he’s done ‘odd jobs’ for over the years, (think things like general repairs and generic adventurer’s work. His IC ‘class’ is an axe-wielding one, though he doesn’t have the Warrior features like the Inner Beast or anything like that,) would be nice, and just friends in general would be kickass! Enemies and darker stuff are also welcomed, as is shippy stuff, though I prefer to chat for a while before promising a romance.

I’d also like blogs to follow even if you’re not interested in RP with Ochigin! Please just drop a like on this post and I will follow you :)

More under the read more because this got really long!

Ignis headcanons

Yaaassss. My sweet Ebony baby. 

Send me a character and I’ll tell you my 5 favorite headcanons about them.  

I know it says my favorite 5 but goddamn I could go on all day abt my ffxv babies, so imma do top my 7.

Originally posted by lcebrand

Random Ignis Headcanons: 

1. –Given his role as the prince/future king’s royal adviser, I wouldn’t be too surprised to see that he grew up with some pretty strict parenting, meaning he’d likely face a lot of pressure to exceed and excel in just about everything you can think of. Because the last thing they’d need is for someone to bring down the family name. JFC just leave my sweet bby alone he’s done nothing wrong. From studying and getting an education with top grades, skills involving healing and medical attention, combat, and even the more domestic and simple of things, like cooking. No room for failure what so ever.

2. This having been said, it’s likely he’d end up developing a sense of anxiety, and perhaps this underlying sense of insecurity and perfectionism, where everything has to be perfect or else it’s not good enough. Sweet Shiva someone pls hold and love this poor sweet man. 

3. The poor man almost never gets any goddamn sleep. It’s why he drinks so much caffeine, especially Ebony. If he doesn’t have Ebony on him, he’ll likely settle for tea and other caffeinated drinks. Otherwise the man is a goddamn zombie until he gets some caffeine into his system. GET SOME REST, IGGY GODDAMMIT. He rarely gets any sleep as is, at most maybe four or five at most since he’s always either doing something work related or tending to Noctis. If you’re dating, chances are you’re gonna have to drag his sorry ass to bed. Iggy pls I love u but go to bed u need sleep, so help me Shiva. 

4–Has sensitive hands. It’s part of the reason why he almost always wears gloves. Since he just about always wears gloves, the skin on his hands is actually quite smooth in comparison. Bonus: Also REALLY fucking good with his hands. And not just for combat and cooking purposes, if you catch my drift   ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°). 

5. I feel like he’d definitely more of a cat person. Warm, loving, cuddly, calming and still fairly attention seeking, but not too demanding like that of a dog and quite independent. Nothing too high maintenance but probably some kind of short haired cat in order to deal with shedding. He has a short haired black cat named Ebony and he loves her to bits, you can’t tell me otherwise okay, it needs to happen. That, or possibly a bird person. And I’m totally not saying that b/c of his hair and I can’t unsee it okay, totally does not remind me of a cockatoo. NOPE NODDA. IDK WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABT.  

6. His go-to pet names for his s/o would likely include something along the lines of: darling, dearest, and kitten.   

7. He is the epitome of the phrase “Mom Friend.” If anything Ignis is not the Mom Friend. The Mom Friend is Ignis. I swear he takes better care of his friends and s/o than he does himself sometimes  almost all of the time. Someone pls get this man a “Treat Yo Self” day. You’d probably have to drag him into it (w/ the help of Noct and the others) but he’d eventually give in w/ enough time, assuming you’re stubborn persistent enough. He works so hard and sacrifices so much...He deserves it.

You know, in the dream sequence of “Take This Ed and Shove It”, there was the deleted scene (that actually was made!) in which the Old Eds are married to the Kankers. Yeesh! Worst nightmare!

But what I found interesting was that Old Marie really let herself go. Like, she just completely let herself go! In comparison, Lee and May looked fairly normal.

Here’s Old Lee…

And here’s Old May…

How she still has her buck teeth, I don’t know! XD

So, they still look like their original selves, just as old ladies! May just has longer hair and wider hips. Lee meanwhile has wider hips too and even large thighs. Either way, they still look normal. Kind of generous of Eddy to make them look that way, isn’t it? XP

And now here’s Marie.

She is FAT!

Okay, okay. XP I’m not about to shame her or the artists for making her this way, far from it. I’m just making an observation.

This is all from Eddy’s dream, which is of his worst fears. Getting old AND marrying the Kankers. But considering that he clearly dislikes Lee the most since she’s the one who has her eye on him… Why does she look normal in comparison to Marie? Marie is after Edd.

So why does he make her look unflattering and like she just stopped taking care of herself? You’d think he would do that to maybe all of them, so that all the Kankers would somehow look undesirable (in a stereotype way, don’t worry). Or heck, maybe just to Lee.

But no, his mind did that to Marie and only Marie.

XD Methinks he’s a wee bit overprotective of Edd… :D So that’s part of his subconscious kicking in, perhaps?

(On a silly note, there was one bit of the deleted scene in which Eddy clings to Edd and is terrified of the fact that they married the Kankers! XD Oh poor old baby! And they honeymooned in the JUNKYARD! Yuck! XP)

A Battlefield is an Excellent Place for a Date

((a request for @keitlura here on Tumblr who wanted to see Keith and Allura flirting in the midst of combat. Alas I can’t really imagine these two sincerely flirting on the battlefield, so I’m sorry if this isn’t really what you wanted.))


The ambush had, so far, been rather underwhelming.

Neither Keith nor the princess ever thought they’d ever get to this point. At one point an ambush would have set their blood and adrenaline rushing, but after having experienced ambushes from some of the most proficient assassins in the galaxy… being jumped by some run down sentries with no coordination was just a letdown.

Still, the sudden attack had to be dealt with.

Keith drove his bayard into the chest of one of the sentries and dislodged it with the aide of his foot before swinging the blade just fast enough to slice through another. His eyes scanned his surroundings trying to locate the princess’s familiar silver hair.

“Princess?!” he called, his voice tinged with concern.

I was speaking to someone about Hanzo’s behavior and character, so I began to listen to the Japanese version of ‘Dragons’ to try to get some depth and inspiration, and it makes me ridiculously emotional. I heard it before, but never fully stewed on it like this. So, strap in for some rambling. 

The implications in the Japanese version is somewhat different from the English (original) version. The tone it takes on is different and the word choices are…deeper? More meaningful? Nuanced? Something like that. 

I’m just over-analyzing things and reading into stuff. But I’m just smiling at work hearing these two interact.

So, the first major difference that I noticed is the way they speak to each other. 

In English, you usually refer to your siblings, you call them by their names or a nickname. That’s fine, no problem. In the English trailer, he says ‘my brother’ over and over without his name, and it reads a little funny. But that’s just nitpicking at their use of dramatics. 

In the Japanese version, when Genji speaks Hanzo’s name for the first time, it takes on a whole different feel. In Japan, you don’t usually call anyone by their first name unless you’re extremely close to them. So hearing his first name being spoken so purposefully, so casually, is shocking. Most likely, his whole life, he’s “young master Shimada” or something similar to that. It must’ve been weird for Genji, too, because in Asian cultures, you don’t generally call your elder siblings by their names (or elders in general), but by their titles (like ‘older brother’, ‘aunt’, or ‘father’). 

In the Japanese version, it also runs smoother in the sense that Hanzo never speaks his brother’s name until the very end. He just calls him his ‘younger brother’. But in the meantime, he calls him ‘kisama’ 「貴様」 which is a rather rude way of referring to someone. But then again, if Hanzo can refer to himself as ‘sessha’, then ‘kisama’ in that regard is actually fitting. Long ago, the word ‘kisama’ wasn’t used as an insult, instead, it was just a regular way of referring to another person (up until the mid 1900′s, I believe. Correct me if I’m wrong). So, I can’t tell if he’s actually meaning it as an insult or if he’s saying it to match the fact that he refers to himself with a word from the 16th century. 

There are actually more dialogue changes, now that I’m listening to both the English and Japanese versions. It might be worthwhile to do a side-by-side comparison of the two. 

But now I have to rethink a few of my headcanons. Hanzo seems to lean toward “strike first, talk later/during”. He’s really quick to anger and I don’t know how well he controls it. He’s an angry little thing. Either that or it’s because Genji’s just digging deep and pissing him off. Like a brotherly fight. It’s funny.

What strikes me is that Hanzo is ridiculously selfish. Perhaps from being the first-born son, but he is selfish and a really flawed character, but that’s okay. He’s interesting this way. At one point, Genji calls him insincere. Not directly, but when he has Hanzo by the throat along that ledge, he’s telling him that sincerity is shown through one’s actions. 

You know the line, “You think you honor your brother, Genji, with incense offerings?” In Japanese, he instead says something like, “With incense and offerings, do you think your brother, Genji, will be pleased with something like that?” I can’t explain it in words, but it’s like the Japanese version is talking about Genji’s as a person or talking about his emotions as himself, and the English version feels like it’s talking about Genji as a concept or something unreachable. Sorry, it’s hard to explain. 

Oh yeah, another interesting point of note is that the word ‘honor’ never comes up in the Japanese version. 

I really like that Genji’s voice becomes so kind (pitying?) when he tells Hanzo that he’s become a new person and has found forgiveness, and that Hanzo must forgive himself. Genji sounds so full of conviction when he tells him that he believes, still, and that he’ll see Hanzo again. (Okay, the dialogue here is somewhat different than the english version, so I need to explain it a bit.)

Hanzo: 現世は父上のお伽噺とはわけが違う。いい加減、幻想を捨てろ
Reality is different from our father’s fairy-tales.  Enough already (?), cast aside your fantasies! 

Genji:幻想だと揶揄されようが、俺はまだ、信じている。いずれまた、兄者。
Even if these fantasies are mocked, I will still believe. Let us meet again, brother. 

In the Japanese dialogue, he’s talking about the stories. In English, he says “Perhaps I am a fool for still believing there is still hope for you.” The dialogue here is drastically different, and I find that very interesting. It’s very direct in English, and Japanese is nuanced as always. 

I want to translate their dialogue, but it’s kind of difficult because a lot of the nuance would be lost without a crapton of explanation. The word choices and speech patterns are interesting, to say the least. I might do it later. (Let me know your thoughts on this. I like hearing how people view these guys.)

(Did you see Hanzo’s fisherman’s dance? I’m so ecstatic about it and wished it came with the music of “SORAN SORAN!” IT’S GREAT. He’s so serious about it and I can’t imagine him doing anything fun without acting like he’s being graded for it.)
