A/N: ty ty ty my child. And I’m not good with angst tbh so ???
And apparently condoms weren’t a huge thing in the 50′s like what? As much as I write unprotected sex, the idea disgusts me tbh.
(I’ve had this in my drafts for forever, sorry!)
“Jimmy,” You whisper as your boyfriend messily tugs the buttons on the front of your blouse. “I can help you…” He pulls the navy blue sleeves down your shoulders, and off of your arms, letting it fall on the floor, much to your annoyance.
“I wanna do it.” You quietly agree, but moments later notice Jimmy grumble, fumbling with your bra. You reach around your back, un-clipping the black garment. He lets out a small sigh, admiring you.
It’s like slow-motion when Jimmy’s lips smash against yours in a quick, passionate kiss that would lead to him tossing you back on the bed, and him un-buckling his trousers with a sly smile, completely forgetting it’s your first time. It wasn’t until he noticed how fast your heart was beating that he remembered, and to which he attempted to stop his actions. After reassuring him that there was nothing to be afraid of, he began again, very slowly.
“My God Jimmy, I’m not made of glass!” You said, a little bit irritated. Alright, a lot a bit irritated. He knew that he could touch you, that you wanted to be touched by him, but he just couldn’t ever get it through his brain. The two of you had fooled around before, going so far as to you sucking him off in bed during the late hours of the night, thankful that he had his own caravan, but never actually done it. Every time you got close to it happening, he backed out because he was nervous. You weren’t letting that happen this time, though. You were going to show him that it was okay. Whether he believed you or not, well, that was up to him.
Pulling him down on the bed with you, you flip over so he’s under you. Pulling his briefs down, his cock springs free. His size had never, ever failed to surprise you, and sometimes it felt like maybe he was too big. But through the times, he had managed to convince you that he wasn’t “too big” as you had originally thought. The thought still lurked sometimes, though.
“Darlin’, what are you doing?” You quickly shush him, trying to keep your thoughts (and confidence) in order. Sliding your panties off, you toss them to the side, along with your skirt, which Jimmy had previously un-zipped halfway. You hear Jimmy laugh nervously, mumbling something or another about you.
You line his cock up with your entrance, slowly sliding down. A small whimper escapes your parted lips, and Jimmy quickly brings his hands to grip your thighs. “Oh darlin’…” After a moment of adjusting to him, you raise yourself up, your hands on his chest, quickly falling again, the warmth already rising in your stomach.
He groans again, feeling your warmth clasp around him. Jimmy mumbles nonsense, only every few words intelligible. You didn’t mind his sounds, just wished you knew what he was saying. You could make guesses, though.
With another thrust, the two of you fall into a nice rhythm. Every time you’d slide down, he’d buck up to meet you. It was a strange way to lose your virginity, but you weren’t really sure if there was a uniform way to do it. Moans spilled from your newly dirty lips, and somehow, pride was apparent in them. You were brand new to the game, but had Jimmy Darling (of all people!) a groaning mess beneath you.
“J-Jimmy!” You pant, Jimmy pushing you back down to meet his hips. He let out a loud grunt escape his lips, feeling you pulse on his cock.
Meanwhile, Jimmy was lost in his own little world. You were the center of his thoughts, how fucking gorgeous you looks sitting on his cock, the angelic sounds you made, the way your body moved… He was so proud of himself for landing a girl as amazing as you. His mind didn’t even jump to the fact that he didn’t deserve you, unlike usual. It was safe to say that you had blown his mind with your sudden dominance.
He had been with two or three girls before. They were awkward, mostly drunken encounters, who were quick and dirty in the back alley. A back alley Sally, if you will. And I mean, who would want to fuck the lobster boy sober? They had gone with whatever he lead with, and probably ignored him the entire time. None of them spoke up about what they wanted, or even attempted at communicating their needs.
But you took charge, apparently, and Jimmy loved that.
With his hands still on your hips and in the perfect sync, he made an attempt at flipping the pair of you over, so that you were on the bed. A second later, you dismount the handsome boy and lay on the bed, the warm Florida breeze sticking to your skin. Jimmy eagerly takes the opportunity and climbs on top of you, peppering kisses on your neck and chest.
It’s not but a few seconds before he’s mercilessly (well, almost) pounding into you. Now, it was your turn to be the moaning mess beneath your lover, enjoying every single second.
“Jim- Ah!” You shout, Jimmy’s hand quickly rising to cover your mouth.
“Shh. We don’t wanna be caught, do we?” Shaking your head no, he lifts his hand. Quickly, and without warning, you feel yourself release over him again. He groans. Not but a few minutes later, both of you had finished and were laying messily sprawled out on the bed. “Well then…”
“Well then, indeed.” You confirm. He smiles, pulling your bare body closer. And soon enough, the pair of you are fast asleep, praying that nobody entered the van until morning.
how do you make the sparkles fall behind the image? like only on the background
hey, love! so i’ve been asked this a lot, and i finally have a day off so below is how i end up with something like this:
(the psd used in this example can be found here)(i save my sparkle gif from here) (this is more to show how to remove the gif from over the model, a tutorial for how to use the gif in the first place can be found here)
this might get a bit wordy since i can never manage to keep things short, and since this is a little bit more complicated than the usual ‘sparkle’ effect, i’ve added a few pictures along the way to help but please feel free to ask any questions!
So this con season I made myself Pidge and a Shiro paladin costumes to wear, with pretty good results. The worst part of it though was the amount of time I spent drafting patterns, so I figured this might be a good resource for anyone else looking to make armor in the future.
is all based on my measurements (a 5′1″ average-ish build with…
bigger thighs), so you’ll likely need to make adjustments to have this
fit yourself, but hopefully this makes building your own cosplay a
little easier. Materials, patterns and everything under the cut. Hope it helps!
do you have any fav troyson hcs? i love your troyson art (all ur art tbh) so much n so i wanted to know what you think of the characters together n all that jazz
My favorite Troyson hcs totally seeped into my ocs,but!!
I like to Imagine Troy was 19 when Kent was 18; He was drafted maybe a year before Kent, so when the rest of the Aces are all Big N Gruff and kinda mean to Kent (waaay before Kent was their captain), I think he was Kent’s First Friend in the team!
MmmMmmmm I also think Troy is Big and Tall?? Not Tater tall, but like, Taller Than Jack.
One time, Kent and the rest of the team were hanging out and Jack was on ESPN and Kent was so distraught he had to excuse himself, and he was out in the yard having really bad Flashbacks, Troy followed him and asked him what was Up, and Kent just. Totally freaked out and told him Everything.
I know some people might Scoff but Ngozi said Kent was kind of the Quiet and Modest type, and he flirts like a Nerd, so he was all, trying to be a wingman for Troy, approaches a girl at a bar, uses his thumb to point at Troy, and Troy was all, under his breath “PARSER!!!!!! NO!!!!! STOP!!!!!!!” Before Kent sticks out his tongue, and he’s all “my friend thinks you’re cute!” and Kent would look Sincere and Adorable, the girl would just end up laughing and kissing his cheek before going away
SO TROY IS REAALLY BAD WITH GAMES. ANY FORM OF GAME THAT ISN’T HOCKEY, HE’S BAD AT. One time he was playing Mario Kart with Kent, and he?? He kept winning? And he was all “IN YO’ FACE PARSER!!” And Kent would roll his eyes like, okay, okay.
BUT THEN. CHICKENFISH GUY WOULD COME OVER, AND TROY WAS GETTING SOME ORANGE JUICE WHEN HE’D SUDDENLY HEAR LOUD, RUSSIAN CURSING?? And he’d see Kent smiling smugly as he totally Demolishes Chickenfish guy at Mario Kart
What I’m trying to say is, Kent lets Troy win at video games because the Big Oaf looks so cute when he’s happy.
TROY LIKES THE BEACH!! Some of the aces are all Old and Grumpy and Troy and Kent bury them in the sand when they fall asleep during their Tanning Session
You can pry Sephardi Troy from my Cold, Withered Fingers….
Kent: NO STOP PLEASE Troy: *sprinkles a pizza with pineapple chunks* Kent: *warbled yodels of pain*
Kent: *bottlefeeding Kit* Kent: take a fucking sip, babes Troy: *slowly turning to him* Do you realise, this is why you’ll never bear any of my babies? Kent: Good. Kent: I don’t need you to father anyone from me.
I honestly have no idea how they end up dating. But the Aces have No idea, like they’ll know Kent is seeing someone, and Troy is seeing someone, but they won’t know they’re with each other. Like an Aces Rookie would see Kent Smooching Troy while Troy was carrying their lunch, and he’d be all “CAPTAIN I RESPECTED YOU, BUT NOW YOU’RE CHEATING ON YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER HOW COULD YOU.” And Kent is all “What I have Never Cheated what are you talking about”
Kent: I don’t like Garlic Bread Troy: *audible pain* Troy: you were my brother, Anakin Troy: I loved you.
Troy: Since When Did Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus Sound This Good? Troy: *catches Kent’s foot tapping along to the beat of Lucky* Troy: Ah.
Your eyes laid heavily on the white wall behind the sleeping body next to you. As they scanned their way down you stopped, catching a glimpse of his sleeping face. The face you could practically stare at for hours, analyzing every crease and little mark. His eyes peacefully laid shut, puckered thick lips closed shut, and his messy blond hair, were all things that came together in what seemed like a masterpiece. A masterpiece wrapped up in the most beautiful white sheets and the sun just barely shining through the windows onto his bare upper body.
A small crack of a smile was placed on your lips as you reached a hand out to stroke his face with the back of it.
“I had to fall in love with you, didn’t I?” You whispered to yourself, moving up to his hair.
Your hand collapsed onto the bed as you continued to look over at him. He was close enough that you could feel his body heat, but at the same time you felt as though he couldn’t have been further. You let out a sigh, sitting up in the bed, searching for your clothes that had to be somewhere on the ground. You threw the blanket off of you, standing up as you spotted them.
The movement from you waking up must have woken Jimin up as you heard a low groan midway through sliding your dress back on.
“Morning, babe.” Jimin let out, stretching his arms over his head as he still lazily laid in his bed.
You turned your head only slightly over your shoulder, smiling over at him.
Jimin tried his best to sit up, resting his face on his palm as he used the other hand to rub his eye.
“You’re leaving already?” He questioned, seeing you fully dressed, clutching the same pair of shoes from the night before.
“Well, it’s not like you won’t ever see me again. Just call me whenever you miss me~ I’m only a few minutes away.”
Jimin sat back, smirking. “What if i’m missing you already?”
The obvious lie struck you so hard you had to stop yourself from clutching your chest. With a fake smile you walked over to him, feeling his soft hand grabbing at your wrist. His thumb gently caressed over it as he stared at you lovingly.
“Jiminie, I promised Yoongi I’d hand out with him for lunch. I was going to head over to the studio and we woke up late. It’s already 11:00.”
“Do you like him more than me?” He pouted, giving you his best puppy dog eyes.
The string of jealously in his tone stuck out to you, you knew he was the jealous type but he never acted that way towards you. You wondered if he had been hiding it this whole time, falling for his trap once more.
“You know I don’t like anyone else more than you.” You assured him, dropping the shoes that were in your hands.
He bit his lip,holding back his smile as you propped your body above him, allowing his hands to find their way comfortably on your sides.
“That’s good to know.” He whispered before pulling you into a kiss.
Yoongi sat at his desk, scrolling through the same bullshit on his Twitter feed for the past hour. It wasn’t until he heard you call out his name that his head snapped up, finally relieved from what felt like his eternal wait.
“Y/N. You’re late.”
You pulled the bags of food from behind your back, smiling at him brightly.
“Yeah but I got your favorite~” You sang, setting the plastic bag of food down on the coffee table.
Yoongi lazily sat up, taking his feet off of his desk as he turned in your direction.
“Where were you this morning? I texted you a few times because I thought you blew me off.”
The question had you rethinking about the events of this morning, still being able to smell the scent from Jimin’s room as you wore a shirt you may or may not have taken with you. It had your lips already perking up into a smile, biting your lower one.
“I was busy trying to pick out what to bring you and then traffic was really bad-.”
“Bullshit.” He sighed, opening the containers of food.
It took seconds before he stopped mid- setting the lid down for him to look up at you again. The glare in his eyes was enough to make your shoulders flinch but you looked away, pouting.
“Y/N. Seriously? You said you’d stop.”
“Maybe I changed my mind.” You defended, still avoiding his gaze.
“This is toxic and you know it. I’m not trying to control you, I’m trying to help you. This is only going to make things worse, I already told you how he really feels. You’re just something to keep Jimin busy.” Yoongi warned, finally placing the lid down on the clear coffee table.
“You’re wrong. I confessed to him like a year ago and he wouldn’t be saying the things he does now if he didn’t actually mean them. He sounded jealous when I told him I was hanging out with you. Then, he told me he would miss me when I left.”
“Because who else would he fuck? Look, he’s not a bad guy but he thinks you both have this weird mutual friends with benefits sort of thing. You actually falling in love isn’t part of it. Plus he knows I’ve been telling you to stop messing around with him.” He groaned.
You sat there quietly, watching as Yoongi snapped apart his wooden chopsticks from the wrapper. He was already digging into the food, probably starving from waiting so long for you to show up. You knew he was right but it felt wrong to even admit it in your mind. You didn’t want to give up.
“Y/N. We both know he says a lot of things to make you happy but he’s still seeing other people isn’t he? He’s not in love with you.”
“Yet.” You mumbled under your breath.
“He just doesn’t want to settle down and I respect that. I’m fine with things the way they are now, anyway. I just want him to know that i’m there for him even if it’s like this. He’s really stressed lately.”
Yoongi rolled his eyes. “Yeah, well who isn’t? Respect yourself and stop giving him whatever he wants like a child. I don’t care if he’s out there hurting other people but I don’t want him hurting you. You’re important to us even if he doesn’t care.”
It was hard for you to even picture cutting it off with him, he was there for you when things got hard, just as you were for him. You were friends with all of them so long you could barely recall the first day you had met, knowing that it was in fact because of Yoongi. Jimin just had this feeling that engulfed you every time you met eyes or heard him speaking your name out loud. You refused to think that he would even think of throwing your friendship away because he thought you were easy and part of you was right. He didn’t think you were easy but sometimes he would end up using you on days that felt the hardest. But who didn’t do that?
“I care about you too. It’s just hard…Yoongi. I seriously, think i’m in love with him. I’ve never wanted to be around someone so much. I never wanted to do things like I would with him. I miss him when he’s not around me and I jump at any chance to go over and see him. I know it must look pathetic but I just- I’m afraid if I let him go, it really will be over.”
Watching you start to tear up made your best friend grudgingly put down his plate, coming over to sit next to you. Yoongi slung his arm over your shoulder, letting you rest your head on him.
“I know. I’m sorry I can be harsh sometimes. I just don’t want you to get hurt, you know? You deserve someone you can actually give you what you want. It’s his loss and he’ll realize it sooner or later.”
While Yoongi attempted to comfort you, you felt your phone vibrating in your lap. As you leaned your head down to see the same, you realized what perfect timing he always had. Jimin’s name could be read on the screen as well as his text.
Jiminie ♥ :
“I know you said you were headed to see Yoongi but I’m also at the company if you wanna come see me”
Listening to Yoongi, for once, you placed your phone face down on your lap instead of answering right away. You sat up, having Yoongi’s arm slide off of you, wiping the tears off of your cheeks.
“You’re right. I’ll make him see how much he wants me even if he doesn’t right now.”
I got quite some asks a while ago about “What does my fave say about me???” and I wanna answer all of them and also no new chapter which is crushing:
Class 1-A: Alphabetized
Aoyama Yuuga: you have horrible self-esteem issues and cover it up by attracting attention to yourself because you want the attention but have absolutely no idea what to do with it once you have it
Ashido Mina: a loud passionate person with a fondness for dress-up (everyday wear or costumes, it doesn’t matter) and people are shocked to find out your level of nerdiness because like… “you don’t look like a nerd…”
Bakugou Katsuki: a spitfire on the inside and sometimes on the outside. You spicy af and people tell you to tone it down. Was a genius in middle school but then found out about everyone else catching up. Has a SUPER fear of failure.
Hagakure Tooru: A cute little flower who blends into the background but never fear, all that gossip is here! People forget you a lot, but you’re used to it. Gotta keep that positive attitude!!!!
Iida Tenya: People tell you you’re weird a lot and they also tell you you’re annoying but you’re just trying to help. Smart af when it comes to what you know, but pretty clueless otherwise.
Jirou Kyouka: You have that one piece of clothing you love dearly and have owned for years and people are shocked to see you whenever you’re not wearing it. Actual music hoe. *takes out one earbud* whut
Kaminari Denki: Admit it you’re an irl troll face but deep down you’re actually the rarest of pepes. Just wants to be loved by friends but you also want a date to prom so jokingly-for-real ask people out on dates. It hasn’t really worked.
Kirishima Eijirou: You love The Gays™ or are irl gay yourself. You’re an actual cinnamon roll but you’re hella burnt on the inside so you’ve got a spine of steel. You love your friends and aren’t afraid to say it. HUGS FOR EVERYONE
Kouda Kouji: You little animal lover you~ <3 ! Shy and sweet, people tell you that you don’t talk much but you’re just anxious. Will talk about your passions until you pass out but if it’s in front of strangers then NO THANKS
Midoriya Izuku: Actual cinnamon roll just trying your best, you’re smart with what you’re passionate about but that also makes you a giant nerd. You have that one weird little quirk that nobody understands so you hide it a lot.
Mineta Minoru: You’re goofy and the squad clown but also naive af. Might not be noticeable on the outside but UR A SINNER HARRY. You read way too much fanfiction because actual porn feels weird/ is too much
Ojiro Mashirao: You like to stick to the background but you also want people to notice when you’ve achieved something so you’re stuck in this cycle of “I want this to look good but also original but not too weird but also cool but also…”
Satou Rikkidou: Your resting bitch face almost has yourself fooled but there’s nothing that can comfort you like food and your best bro can. Is really good at cooking. Part of the “Support Everyone But Forgets Yourself” Squad.
Sero Hanta: You come off as harmless but deep down you’re a disgusting memer waiting for the perfect moment to pun and meme. Your health is important, look at this article you printed off just for your friends’ cringe
Shouji Mezou: You’re quiet at first but hella observant so you can tell the moment to open up and let people see how harmless you are on the inside. Gentle soul who only want the best for others. Will kill/die to protect others.
Todoroki Shouto: You’ve been deeply hurt by someone you looked up to and you know you’re still messed up. You’re trying to grow away from the pain but it’s hard. A little wrapped up in your head, you want to love others again.
Tokoyami Fumikage: You know every word to “Welcome to the Black Parade”. You like really cool, dark and edgy things so your inner emo is Strong™. People tell you that you need to cool your chill and warm up. flip them the bird.
Tsuyu Asui: IRL perfect friend, you are the mom friend/ big sis friend of the group who makes sure everyone stays together and doesn’t do stupid shit. At least, doesn’t do stupid shit without you. Pokèmon was a lifestyle, once.
Uraraka Ochako: Looks innocent on the outside but will punch a guy if they step over that very clear line. Friends and family are to be protected at all costs. You’re so cheap, people laugh but in reality you’re scared to spend money.
Yaoyorozu Momo:Smart af and pretty too, you’re so used to things coming easily to you that you panic as soon as something seems hard. In group projects you’re the one that does 95% of the work. You’re (kinda) ok with this.
Alright, I covered Class 1-A first, but if your fave isn’t on this list, or you wanna look up your other faves, I left it all under the cut!
All Might/ Toshinori Yagi: Actual cinnamon roll trying their best to be a good guardian and lead those who are lost. Is the actual biggest dork around. Tries to be cool but simply… isn’t. We love you anyways. Pls take care of yourself too.
Eraserhead/ Aizawa Shouta: you’re extra salty in need of a nap and still care about everyone around you but still like to fuck with them to show you care. Is a cat person and feels like you can only get along with other cat people.
Hi mom! ^^ Love your writing! It was just my birthday last week and I was wondering if I might request a namjoon author/editor au? (if he was your editor or you were his etc. whichever!) Apologies if you've done something similar before;; Thank you!♥
ahh happy late birthday!! ive written author taehyung before, but namjoon fits it too so !!! here you go, something cute for him~
is primarily a poet, and yes im talking love poems and all that jazz, but also really emotional poems about social injustices and human pain
and he has a way with words that makes readers overcome with tears - like there’s a reason he’s on the best selling list and was featured in over twenty literary magazines
and people probably get quotes of his tattooed on them like damn
his pic on the back of the book sleeve is black and white and he’s got his hand under his chin,,,,,,,,,he looks like a uni professor LOL
people always get teary eyed at his book signings and readings, his tour managers have to request extra Kleenex for the sobbers,,,,,
honestly namjoon just gets confused and is like,,,,im,,,s,,,sorry??? but everyone is like n o no it’s just so bEautiful
(tbh he gets super shy when complimented, much to his fans shock,,)
interviews with him actually get a ton of views because well 1) he’s handsome but 2) he does this cute smile and hides his face when people say he’s a great poet
like sensitive boy namjoon is real and thriving
you’re his editor and even under the whole beautiful, simple, amazing writing - the poems that seems so short and quick to write - you’ve seen his struggle
breaking his back over thousands of drafts, crumpling up pages and throwing out full notebooks of poems
and writing about heavy stuff isn’t easy on namjoon either, sometimes you find him sitting on the floor beside his desk, staring blankly at a news title of some atrocity in the world
sometimes he doesn’t eat for three days. doesn’t sleep for a week.
he publishes his book and people swoon over his talent and good looks, but you’re the only one whose seen this side of him
the side all writers and poets hide from the world - but not from their editor
so when you meet up with him, the usual dingy coffee place that namjoon has come to love, you see something is off
he’s worse than usual
“i have no inspiration, and they want a book of poems by the end of the month.”
his deep voice has never faltered, but it sounds dejected and tired
“well,,,,,,,let’s find you some.” you try to sound optimistic, but you’re not sure
namjoon’s first book was based off of his first love. his second, off his views on the harsh world, his third was on a recent, secret breakup. now,,,,,he was stuck and you weren’t sure if there was anything left
you try to see his face, but his eyes are stuck to the blaring laptop screen. an empty word documents stares back
“i know you can do it namjoon, is there anything that you’ve maybe been saving? or maybe haven’t explored? a secret?”
namjoon’s eyes suddenly flick to meet your gaze
the tips of his ears turn pink, you’re on to something
inching forward in your seat you go, “you do! is it a person? write about them!”
you don’t notice it, but namjoon’s eyes are taking in the details of your face. the small things that he can’t believe he’s noticed all along
you said write about something he’s never explored - a secret,,
there’s one he’s kept ever since you became his editor
suddenly, namjoon begins to type and you grin. he found it.
“ill get some more coffee for us.”
you get up to go order, making sure to take some extra money to buy namjoon a snack since you know he won’t eat while he’s writing
as you leave, namjoon bites back his lip
he mouths to himself what he’s wrote so far,
“my secret sits across from me, voice like velvet, sun ray eyes spark tender flickers, why cant i tell them all i have hidden from the world is you. you, my secret sitting across from me.”
he doesn’t notice you come back, leaning over the table to see his laptop
“did you write something?” your excitement apparent and namjoon jumps a bit in his seat
quickly, he closes it and takes the cup of coffee you’ve set down in order to avoid answering
you smirk and tease, “you totally did. i can’t wait to read it!!!”
namjoon feels his heart race a little in his chest, because if anything, he had never imagined he would confess his feelings like this
in a poem, that you were sure to read and edit
he thinks to himself, i can’t wait for you to read it too. but will you still only want to be my editor after it?
you wave your hand in front of his face, laughing as namjoon snaps out of it
“you’re in a writing daze, but here i got you this so you don’t forget to eat.”
you put the bag of scones down on the table as well, smiling and namjoon takes them with a thank you
you’ve always taken care of him, he knew you were different when you picked up his first draft carefully - like it was priceless
when other people had clawed into it and thrown it around without care
“so, what’s your secret - i want to know now!!” you urge again, but namjoon shakes his head
Severus was an asshole but not for telling people Remus was a werewolf
I know Severus is a Certified Asshole™ but telling people about Remus’ werewolf condition is really not the “bad thing” about the whole situation.
Severus could have done it any day, he did not have to wait for things to go wrong because technically telling people Remus was a werewolf was telling a fairly important truth
for the love of god it is not like outing someone’s sexuality because sexuality is purely personal whilst being a werewolf is very much a potential danger to others
sexualities do not kill……. dont compare being gay to being cursed by a bite someone forced onto you and an illness that ruins your life…… that’s so wrong pls
Severus also only did it after Remus actually did forget to drink his potion
Remus could have legitimately killed or infected students (were they not protected by the main-character shield)
Ok tbh Remus forgetting to take his potion is cringeworthy bullshit bc no matter the circumstances he could not possibly “forget” about the full damn moon
Also he only transformed when looking at the moon which implies he would not have changed if he had stayed inside and not looked at or remembered the moon??? bc it had literally been a full moon for hours already at the time????? someone clearly needs to read a “writing werewolves 101″
Back to business:
Dumbledore gave Remus a jinxed position
Do not dare to tell me Remus got kicked out of a stable and safe place there was literally nothing stable or safe about Hogwarts (especially not the DADA teacher position)
It was likely Remus’ home in a way, and he loved his job, but that doesn’t change the above
Dumbledore knew Remus would not stay for longer than a year
people had very literally died from being DADA teachers (or ended up w permanent damage)
Werewolves………. in a jinxed and deadly position…….. with children everywhere….
Severus spilling his secret and causing him to fire himself is a dick move but Remus could literally not have stayed bc of the jinx
It was probably one of the “gentlest” ways a teacher had left the jinxed DADA position??
the law that was passed afterwards is an entirely different story but more on that later (stay tuned)
you do realise that Severus had been waiting nearly an entire year for Remus to fuck up and it actually happened and he only did it after witnessing Remus going berserk before his very own eyes (thank god for plot conveniences preventing any characters getting hurt)
saying “hey, this man is a werewolf and I have seen him nearly harm students because he did not take his potion” is a very real reason to fire someone
we forget this because we like Remus and he deserves happiness while Severus is typically an asshole and Dumbledore gives no fucks about safety whatsoever
but actually “outing” Remus was really not that much of a dick move as it was a logical reaction
because in a school known for Murder Ball (aka quiditch), The Hunger Games (magical edition), a very real secret chamber that contained a very real deadly gigantic monster, literally being situated in a Forbidden Forest full of malevolent creatures (featuring Arachnid Death and Angry Horses), and the occasional visit from voldemort, you might want to not add a werewolf to the list
we should also not forget that Severus knew very damn well what a werewolf out of control looked like and what it could do
since one (the very one now teaching in hogwarts) had nearly killed him several years ago
this is not a matter of whether it was his own fault either i’m just saying that severus wasn’t making up some shit about werewolves being dangerous because he was petty
i mean he definitely is petty but
he was not exagerating the danger in any way and had all the reason to not be okay with a werewolf in school especially the one that nearly killed him idk dumbledore does not care about severus whatsoever lol
note that I am not saying the law against werewolf employment was justified
that is absolutely not ok wtf
see, the real thing that should anger you (it surely angers me) is the diddly darn ministry of magic
why tf would you pass a law that alienates a bunch of people that are often not only innocent victims but also p dangerous and in need of help
even from a purely strategical view: you want these people on your side
they are vulnerable and deadly
the sort of combination that opens many possibilities
WEREWOLF ENHANCED SENSES??? do they realise the lost potential of not using that???
Voldemort will scrape them up you know this why are you more bigoted/stupid than the actual enemy
pairing: cho chang + roger davies notes: so maybe he’s always liked her, and maybe he’s always wanted her to look at him the way she still looks at diggory, but this–
–he doesn’t know how it ended up like this.
(a non-magical au look at how roger davies likes this girl so much that he doesn’t sleep with her. a look at the morning after.)
A soft gasp and the feeling of someone jerking away wakes him up.
Roger groans, feeling a slight pounding at his temples, and he turns from his side onto his back and releases a satisfied exhale when the welcome semi-orgasmic quiver that comes with all great stretches finds a nook in his abdomen.
He opens his eyes slowly, adjusting his vision until it’s quite clear that the pastel green star stickers on the ceiling most certainly are not his, so he sits up.
She’s sitting at the foot of the bed with a blanket drawn modestly around her torso and her dark blue push-up bra is hidden behind long, silky hair, but he’s not sneaking glances at her chest, is he, because he can’t pull away from her gaze, fixed so firmly on him, and her eyes are wide, half measures worried and confused, while her dark lips are parted slightly, and never in a million years did he think he would be in the same bed as her–
Roger swallows and feels the inside of his mouth turn to sandpaper.
Alec looked up over the pot he was currently stirring in the Institute kitchen to see Isabelle leaning casually against the door frame.
“I-” Alec started before cutting off abruptly when the pot began to boil over. Once he turned down the heat he finished, “I invited Magnus for dinner here tonight.”
“You… Invited Magnus here? Like, for a date?”
“Yeah,” Alec responded grimly.
Alec sighed, “we are always at his place, or we always do things that he suggests… I just didn’t want him to think I’m ashamed of him or something, and that’s why we never come here.”
“Um, obviously. You never come here because here sucks,” Izzy responded gesturing to the general area of the Institute.
Alec rolled his eyes and threw some spices into the pot, “are you going to say anything helpful anytime soon? Because if not, leave me to my meal.”
“Actually, that’s why I came. It smelled like something was burning, and Alec… I’m pretty sure food isn’t supposed to look like that.”
“You have absolutely no leg to stand on,” Alec said defensively, “it’ll be fine. I’m sure if I just keep adding things it’ll eventually even out.”
“By the Angel, what is that awful smell ”
Alec sighed when Jace walked in. The exact last person he wanted to see right now. Jace would never let him live this down, so Alec resigned himself to humiliation.
“Alec invited Magnus here for a date and offered to cook for him,” Izzy said with a smarmy grin.
Jace’s eyes widened, “you invited him here? Are you aware that he owns a beautiful penthouse apartment with the world’s most luxurious showers? Honestly, I’m glad to be home… But I still daydream about that shower. Also, there are way fewer people… Don’t you want privacy?”
“Considering how often you guys interrupt us anyway,” Alec said ignoring Jace’s sound of protest,” I’m not actually sure it matters where we are. And would you stop! He’ll be here in half an hour, it’s too late to suddenly change plans. So, either help me or leave me to my misery.”
Jace and Izzy shared a look that Alec knew well- it was the ‘Alec is such a loser’ look, but he didn’t call them on it. Especially because, after a moment, they both shifted their shoulders back into soldier positions. They may drive him insane, but they’ll always come through for him.
“Sure, buddy, why don’t I help you make a dinner that resembles human food?” Jace offered, and Alec sighed with relief. Of the three of them, Jace was by far the most capable in the kitchen.
“Where were you thinking of setting up?” Izzy asked.
Alec blushed slightly, but responded, “it’s nice out… So I thought, maybe… We could eat on the balcony of my office?”
“Wow, look at you, bro,” Izzy said punching his arm playfully, “you are actually a secret romantic.”
“Shut up,” Alec said turning away. “We don’t have much time, so Jace…”
“Say no more,” Jace responded, taking Alec’s pot and dumping everything out ignoring Alec’s soft sound of disapproval. “We don’t have a lot of time, so I think your best bet is some type of pasta dish, we’ll throw some fish on top because fish cooks faster than meat, make a salad and call it a day.”
“Do you have wine?” Izzy asked.
Alec nodded, at least that part he had completed. “Yeah, it’s chilling in the fridge.”
Izzy nodded in approval, “I’ll go set up your balcony. Alec, why don’t you go shower and get ready?”
“But what if Jace needs my-”
“No!” Jace said with alarm, “no, it will be less work for me if you’re not here. But don’t forget, you’re going to owe me big time.”
“Duly noted,” Alec responded, “what do you want?”
“I’ll tell you later,” Jace said already focused on his task of chopping vegetables.
Alec nodded and ran to his room, cursing softly. It was disorganized because he’s been so distracted and busy lately. He hastily shoved a few empty, day old mugs into empty drawers, chucked his clothes into a laundry basket and then put that in the closet. With his room now looking moderately less terrible he rushed to take a shower, shaving his face and using the after-shave he knew Magnus liked so much. Or at least, Alec thinks he likes it based on the way he always seems to nuzzle closer on the days he uses it.
He knew he couldn’t waste any time, Magnus was religiously punctual (at least, with Alec. Otherwise he was more than content to make people wait. The preferential treatment always made Alec smile.)
By the time he got back to the kitchen Jace was just about finishing up dinner.
“Okay,” Jace said upon seeing him, “I plated it and put the extras in your office, so that should be fine. I did place a heating rune on the pot, so no worries.”
“You are the best parabatai,” Alec said pulling into a hug that surprised both of them.
“Sap,” Jace said squeezing back just as hard.
“I’m done with the balcony. I put the wine in an ice bucket out there,” Izzy said as she walked in on them hugging. Alec pulled her into the hug as well, because while his mother may insist that Lightwoods aren’t huggers, that particular family trait did not pass down to her children.
“Try not to be too tragic, okay, Alec?” Izzy said as they pulled away. Alec made a face.
“I’m not tragic.”
Jace and Izzy shared that look again, “okay.”
Alec opened his mouth to respond but his phone vibrated, with a message from Magnus letting him know he came.
“I gotta go,” Alec said.
Jace turned to leave with a wink, “if you end up fucking on the desk in your office I wouldn’t blame you.”
“Goodbye,” Alec said walking away to let Magnus in through the front door.
Magnus took his breath away, as usual. He was dressed well, but Alec didn’t expect anything else. There was something special about this, though, about having Magnus on his turf and opening the door for him. It was nice knowing that for once, Magnus really didn’t have to do anything- Alec could take care of him completely. It was a surprisingly heady feeling, Alec thought he might ask Magnus to come here more often after all.
“I didn’t want to come empty handed,” Magnus said holding out a cake tin. “So I figured I’d bring dessert.”
Alec took the cake and leaned down slightly to meet Magnus’s lips for a welcoming kiss. “Yes, very sweet.”
Magnus rolled his eyes at the line but smiled anyway and kissed him again. When Magnus pulled back he immediately nuzzled Alec’s cheek, which made him smirk internally. Looks like he was right about that aftershave.
Alec led Magnus to his office and was hit by the scent of well-cooked pasta covered in a fragrant sauce. Jace really was a life saver. The second thing he noticed was the table on the balcony, with candles placed over a clean white table cloth, beside it was a smaller table with the wine he got chilling in an ice bucket. He even heard soft jazz playing in the background.
“Wow,” Magnus said his eyes slightly wide, “is this some type of anniversary I forgot?”
Alec laughed, “no. I just… Wanted tonight to be nice. Jace and Izzy helped a lot.”
Magnus smiled, “I thought I recognized that smell. I think Jace made this for me once when he was staying with me.”
Alec was burning up with happiness that bordered on giddy. He walked to the table outside, his hand still holding Magnus’. Letting go briefly, he pulls out Magnus’ chair for him. Magnus, who has been watching him with a soft smile, actually blushes at that. Alec thinks that if he can keep that wide-eyed look of wonderment on Magnus’ face as often as he can, he’ll have lived a good life.
The place settings already had two plates full of food on them and had a small warming rune burned into the corner of the ceramic.
He moved to open the bottle of wine when he realized he didn’t have a wine opener. Alec opened his mouth to start stuttering something when the bottle was suddenly uncorked in a haze of blue magic.
“Thanks,” Alec said, his cheeks still slightly red.
“It’s the least I can do,” Magnus said gesturing around them.
Alec rolled his eyes, and reached one hand out to grab Magnus’ and pressed a gentle kiss to his knuckles. “I’m glad you like it.”
“Of course I do, you didn’t need to go to all this effort but I do appreciate it. I love you,” Magnus said, his eyes warm and gentle as the looked at Alec. He was always struck by how beautiful Magnus’ eyes really are, they express so many emotions, they can be gentle and kind, and icy cold. Right now they radiated love, and Alec’s breath caught in his throat.
“I love you too,” he responded. “Now, should we eat? This looks delicious.”
-kell and lila end up having a son and it’s not exactly planned bc lila didn’t want kids but they end up rolling with it
-his name is holland barron and it was a hard fought battle that kell eventually won at much risk to his own life and lila only managed to semi agree and had to settle for his middle name being barron (and she would have gotten her way but she felt slightly guilty bc…u kno)
-holland has heterochromia and one eye is brown and the other is green (bc it is okay)
-he can also wield fire but it’s his only element
-rhy and alucard basically adopt holland as well and rhy decides that holland should be his heir bc “he just oozes charm like me” and no one can say anything against it bc technically he is royal since kell is a prince
-so holland basically has three dads and a badass mom
-fun fact: rhy calls holland holly berry bc he can (and he gets away with it. alucard tries and kell almost punches him while rhy claims that no one else can call holland that cause it’s his special nickname)
-whenever holland makes friends everyone is semi wary but he’s so damn charming that they forget that he’s their crown prince and they just wanna be his friend
-but forever in the bg his parents are all ready to fight™ if anything happens to their son
-rhy is fricken king he has a crap ton of power ready at any time and he could talk someone into totally destroying themselves with just his words no need for magic
-this is the only time kell and alucard would ever 100% agree on something (because even on rhy they only agree sometimes) but both of them are so ready to fight for holland they would honestly wreak havoc
-unfortunately for these three they won’t ever get to do anything bc not only has lila made sure her boy can take care of himself, but she’s even scarier than the three put together and if someone was stupid enough to try and cross rhy and kell and alucard…well they have lila bard to deal with
-holland also travels a lot with lila and kell and sees a lot of the world and rhy makes sure he does bc he doesn’t want holland to stay cooped up all of his life
-unfortunately for kell, holland absolutely loves to sail and alucard is more than happy to teach him some ways
-kell is jealous and tells alucard to stop filling his son’s mind with pirate fantasies and lila comes and smacks kell and tells him to let their son learn
-sometimes holland has fears that he can’t live up to be the great prince/king that rhy is and his fear runs deeper than his parents know because he’s been surrounded by greatness but he’s not sure he can do it and he’s afraid he’s going to do things wrong
-rhy is the one who actually finds out about this and sits down and talks with holland about how he felt having no magic and how he felt he wasn’t good enough and they both sit down and talk for a long time
-holland’s fears aren’t totally gone but they’re better and then later he gets to hear the story of how holland (antari) saved them and how he’s one of the reasons why they survived and holland then feels better about himself bc his namesake fucked up a lot but in the end he was the reason why they’re all there
-basically holland has an incredibly loving family lmao
Rough-draft-ish timeline for book 1! BTW if you are visual like me, the closest we get to a calendar year for All For the Game is 2006/2007. It’s not 100% accurate, because not all of the dates match up perfectly throughout the whole series, but this is the closest one, with only a few dates off. It diverges in June, so I kept to the book for the rest of June because dates were easy to track; it meets back up with the calendar year in August and so far as I’ve checked sticks pretty close to it for the rest of the series?? The games do at least??
In the days that were too eventful (or I just typed too much for them), I underline the important parts tumblr removed my underlines?? i’ll think of something sorry!!, and for all of it I italicize direct quotes

-end of book 1-
Book 1 covers 18 specific days days and spans ~5months
So the fact
that Bitty went from a no contact co ed high school team to the first line of
an NCAA team is amazing. Like, despite his checking fear, Bitty must be good. So like, how good would he be if
he went through the system rather than figure skating? Mostly this is my really
complicated au to get Bitty to the NHL. Also I love the idea that Bitty is just
really good at hockey, okay?
Okay so after pewee football didn’t
work out, in say third grade, Bitty decides he wants to do figure skating. But
Coach is hesitant. Like really hesitant. So he encourages him to join a mite
hockey team (8 and under), because it doesn’t allow checking, unlike pewee
football, which allows tackling by the third grade in the South, in my
experience. Eric tries it out, and it’s certainly not figure skating, it is a
lot better than football, and when he tells Coach, he is practically thrilled.
But obviously, Eric is pretty good.
By the next year, when he gets to ages 9-10, he plays at level AAA. He’s fast,
he’s good with the puck, and good at reading the other players on his team. He’s
very popular. They call him Bitty, because, honestly, it’s a pretty obvious
nickname, and I imagine that Eric’s always been on the small side. He bakes
pies for the team with his mom and everything’s pretty good. He doesn’t have figure skating to express
himself like he did in canon, and obviously hockey is very hyper-masculine, even
at a young age I’d imagine, so that’s hard for him.
As he gets older, he gets teased a little bit,
both on the team and in school, about his size, about his baking, etc., but he
has enough friends on the team that it doesn’t become a huge issue, and after
all, he is a really good hockey player. He never gets locked in a closet. Coach
does catch some boys from his team calling him a f*g, and that is what sparks
the move to Madison. He knows his boy is pretty damn good at hockey, and if
Junior wants to really get somewhere, gay rumors aren’t going to help. Plus,
he’d gotten a really great job offer there, so it’s a win-win.
Bitty finds a new hockey team and
things are good. Pretty great, honestly. He loves hockey, surprisingly enough, even
though the fact that there is checking now makes him seriously uncomfortable. Fortunately,
he’s fast enough that it doesn’t happen often. The first time it happens,
though, he passes out. It happens again the second time. The third time, his
parents get into a huge fight about it, but his mother wins and she takes him
to therapy, where he is diagnosed with PTSD. His therapist and his coaches help
him a lot, and he learns to deal with the checking. He is also diagnosed with
ADHD, which neither his mother nor Coach really understand, but his medication
does seem to help him a lot, especially in school, so they are okay with it,
even if they don’t talk about it.
After Bitty is comfortable with his therapist,
he admits that his thinks he is gay, and to his relief, she is very
understanding, and helps him through it. He doesn’t get drafted in the USHL’s
draft in the May after his sixteenth birthday, and he is heartbroken (I know
that his birthday is the fifth and the draft is on the first week, but maybe it
works. Idk pretend it does lol.)
He steps up his practicing, working harder
than ever that year as captain of his team. When the junior year roles around,
he is drafted by the Chicago Steel. He is thrilled. And terrified. Bitty has
never, ever been that far from home. His mama tries to talk him out of leaving.
“Dicky, why can’t you just wait a year for college if you are so eager to
leave?” But this is his chance. His chance to leave Georgia, maybe find
somewhere more accepting, get a hockey scholarship (because that was the deal
he made with his parents, going into Juniors means he has to go to college for
at least four years before going into the NHL), play in the NCAA, and then
maybe even the NHL. Which at this point, it was pretty obvious he was at least
going to make the AHL, even if he never cracked the NHL roster. (ok so bear
with me. I’ve done some reading on the USHL and the NCAA, but tbh I still am
not sure exactly how it works, so I’m playing fast and loose with the rules
Ok so Bitty starts playing with as
a Steel in the fall of his senior year. He gets scouted by a bunch of NCAA
teams, as well as a few NHL teams. Eric eventually decides on Samwell (pretty
quickly actually), because they have Jack Zimmermann, 1 in 4, the amazing
scholarship, and the fact that Samwell is significantly closer to Georgia than
Chicago. So flash forward the rest of that season/school year to his first day
as a Samwell Wellie.
So like, as far as we know
according to canon, no one in Bitty’s year was scouted from a USHL or a
Canadian Juniors team, so rather than being the small underdog third-liner he
is in canon, Bitty is probably a pretty big deal. After all, the only other two
people on the SMH who played Junior Hockey is Jack and Holster, and both are
two of the SMH’s best players.
Okay, so Bitty knows he’s good.
Obviously, he does. But know, for some reason, he is still really nervous about
coming to play for Samwell. Jack Zimmermann’s team, lord. And this isn’t just
his team, this is his school and he really wants to fit in, darn it. But he’s
not too worried. He’s had plenty of
practice bro-ing it up over the years. And hey, bringing, like, one pecan pie
to the first skate isn’t trying too hard is it? (He doesn’t do his vlog like in
canon, but he is pretty well known on Twitter for both hockey and baking.)
He totally thought he would be
prepared for this. For goodness sakes, he’s been around hockey bros since he
was eight! But good lord, this is a whole new level of weird! First of all,
what kind of nickname is ‘Shitty’? And for heaven’s sake, how dare Jack tell him to ‘eat more protein.’?
He has been playing hockey and cooking
long enough to know how to feed himself, thank you very much, Mr. Zimmermann. And
the things they did to his pie, good lord.
Bitty starts preseason practices
playing on the first line with Jack, and it honestly the most fun he’s ever had
in his life. Playing with Jack is absolutely amazing, despite the fact that he
seems to annoy the heck out of Jack.
Okay, so even though Bitty isn’t
scared of checking like he is in canon, he still gets on Jack’s nerves. Mostly
because, at first, Bitty reminds him of Parse. And it’s not just that they’re
both small, fast, blonde skaters; it’s the fact that Bitty is the probably the
only other player on the SMH team that has a chance at making it big in the
NHL, and being on his line, just reminds him of being on a line with Parse and
his endless ambition.
But. Then he gets to know Bitty. He
realizes that Bitty is nothing like Parse. Parse has always been the only other
person Jack’s ever met who is as driven as himself, and Bitty is different. It’s
not that Bitty isn’t driven. They practice together twice a week at five in the
morning, in fact, by Bitty’s request. But he is kinder, warmer, and far more
compassionate then Parse ever was. And he doesn’t seem to think of Jack as competition,
but just as a friend and teammate.
Alright, so most of the rest of
this first year is the same as in canon. Bitty doesn’t come out to his friends until
the end of fall semester, and of course, it goes fine. Then comes Yale. Bitty
gets a concussion, and while he was expected to be drafted high in the first
round of the 2016 draft, the concussion, however minor, throws a wrench into
those plans. He ends up going 56th over all to the Providence Falconers.
Which is actually pretty great, because it’s even closer to Georgia than
Samwell, but still far enough north that, well, he won’t have to go back down
south after graduation. Plus, their AHL team (which I am 100% making up and I know nothing about the east coast so, sorry) is the
Hartford Eagles, so that’s not far either.
After that, I have no idea. Does
Bitty ever play for Team USA in the World Juniors? I don’t know; you tell me
lol. I guess for the most part everything happens the same way. Jack signs to
the Falconers next year (which yeah, starts some rumors, but that’s a fic for
another time. I could have saved the angst and have Bitty been drafted by the
Bruins, but like, hell no.) Jack and Bitty get together at the end of Bitty’s sophomore
year, and pretty much everything follows canon until Bitty graduates, at which
point he ends up in Hartford for a couple years, which is hard for him and Jack
being and hour and a half away, but they are honestly both so busy that the
extra distance doesn’t effect them that much.
By the start of the 2019-2020
season, Bitty is on the Falconers 3rd line. By the end of the
season, he and Jack are on the first line together, leading the Falconers to
their second Stanley Cup Championship. They come out as a couple together,
shortly after that. And yeah, there is a lot of shit to put up with from the
media, the fans, and other players, but there is also a lot of support. And
they have each other. The both play for the Falconers for the entirety of their
careers and live happily ever after with their Cup rings, a dog, and maybe even
a kid once they retire. The end. Please someone write an actual fic of this lol.
Like seriously. I would love to see someone explore how this would effect Bitty
emotionally. Also World Juniors. Like. C’mon.
Note; theres like eight drafts saved right now, with six more request in my inbox. Some of these have been in here longer than others, but tbh I’m just going through the list and choosing which ones I feel like writing right now. That being said, these are gonna come in random order, but don’t worry if you requested something it will be up! Its just a matter of time.
this is part of an ongoing series that is noooot completed so it’s a very, very rough draft, babe! there are references to moments that have not been written yet and some development yet to be shown tbh. and at the moment it’s also probably not canon-compliant. but here you are, at your request!
“don’t you want to come in?” jonas raises both of his eyebrows. “it’s raining.”
“no, i —“ noora purses her lips. “william’s back.”
jonas stiffens visibly. “oh.”
noora doesn’t know where she’s going from here. jonas seems to not know, either.
“so you’re—what?” jonas eyes her. “you’re going to get back together with him?”
