"Hey God, if you're there, my life has really sucked. So please, for once, let me have a sweet dream."
- Puella Magi Madoka Magica
"Meeting you was the best thing that ever happened to me. You made me so happy. I don’t want you to be lost or afraid or anything like that. From here on out, I know things might be hard sometimes. But no matter what may await, please don’t regret meeting me."
"Please boss, don't put that thing over my face, don't put me in the dark. I's afraid of the dark."
Even can tell the moment he sees Isak after their first class. Someone who doesn’t know him might not be able to tell, but the two of them have spent more time together than many people would say is healthy, and by now they know all the little details of each others’ body language. Even sees the way Isak’s shoulders slump just a little bit, how his eyes turn to the floor rather than the hallway in front of him, how the little dandelion Even picked this morning on their way to school is no longer tucked behind his ear, and something is obviously very, very wrong.
Even has no idea why. Isak was so happy earlier this morning, beaming with that dandelion behind his ear as they said goodbye before going to class. He would like to talk to him about it, but he barely has time to kiss him on the cheek and say hello before the boys join them. Magnus and Mahdi instantly pick up where the conversation from earlier this morning left off - something about one of the shitty movies they watched this weekend - and Even doesn’t blame them for it. They’ve spent little to no time alone with Isak; of course they haven’t learned how to read him. Jonas, on the other hand, sees it immediately, and he looks at Even like he’s asking; Do you know what this is about?
Even shakes his head ever so slightly; he barely moves at all. But Jonas sees it, and now he’s looking at Isak, obvious concern in his eyes. Isak doesn’t look back at him; his eyes are on the floor, the walls, the ceiling. Never on Jonas, never on Even.
They don’t get to talk for several hours after this; there’s no time. Not that Even would want to have this kind of conversation at school; it’s a conversation that should be saved for when they’re safe back inside the walls of their home. This doesn’t mean they don’t talk about it at all. They talk silently, through their little movements, while they sit closely together in the cafeteria at lunch. Even tries to look Isak in the eye. What’s wrong? Isak looks back up at him for a second, shakes his head, looks away. Leave it.
They both know he won’t.
They walk back home in silence. Not the comfortable kind, but the kind that means they should talk but don’t. Isak doesn’t want to, Even doesn’t know how to. So instead, they walk in silence.
Eventually, though, Even recognizes the small patch of dandelions that they passed this morning, and he can’t help but smile. He turns to Isak. “Hey, you.”
Isak looks up just as Even lets go of his hand and turns away from him to pick one of the flowers. Turning back, he gently strokes Isak’s cheek as he tucks the little flower behind his ear. This, finally, brings a smile to Isak’s face. A small one, but still; it’s a smile. He looks up to meet Even’s gaze for a split second, before turning back to the pavement below them.
That’s the final push that Even needs.
He slowly moves his hand from Isak’s ear back to his cheek, cupping his face. His thumb slowly moves up and down in gentle strokes, and Isak leans into the touch, closing his eyes. He looks almost relieved, like he’s finally allowed to rest after wandering for miles. He sighs deeply through his nose, and Even is so in love with him he can barely breathe. He lives for quiet moments like this; the moments that are intimate without the two of them necessarily being physically close. But Isak is hurting, and Even’s still worried. He slowly leans forward until their foreheads touch, breathes in and out; one, two, three times. Then he asks;
Isak sighs again. He sounds almost annoyed, like he’s wondering why they couldn’t just have this moment without bringing up the bad things again, and if it weren’t for the circumstances, Even would have been amused. “Nothing,” Isak mutters.
Even allows a couple of silent seconds to pass; closing his eyes and opening them again. Isak’s hands feel warm against his arms. “No, it’s not nothing, Isak.”
Isak slowly opens his eyes. His gaze is still glued to the ground. He shifts uncomfortably, but his forehead never leaves Even’s. “It’s fine, you… You don’t need to worry about it.”
“Yes, I do. I always worry about you. It’s my job.”
Isak finally looks up, meeting Even’s gaze. He laughs a little, and it’s at least half genuine. A small victory, Even thinks. “I thought I was your support person, and not the other way around?”
That actually makes Even laugh. “Yeah, yeah. You don’t know me. Maybe your parents pay me too.”
Isak lets out a surprised, fake offended laugh. He playfully shoves Even away, still holding him but keeping him an arm’s length away. “What? Really?”
“Yeah. It’s the only reason they let us move in together.”
Isak shakes his head. “Well, this is it. I’m breaking up with you.”
“No, why would you do that?” Even pouts, pulling the other boy back in.
“Well, obviously I can’t date someone who makes deals with my parents behind my back!”
“Why not? I put up with you.”
“Yeah, but it’s different when it’s you.”
“Oh, it is?”
Isak won’t stop laughing, and Even’s heart melts into a puddle in his chest. This guy. Finally seeing him happy, even if it’s just for a moment, feels like coming home. The giggly kisses that follow come as naturally as breathing, their banter continuing as quiet mumbling during the short moments when their lips part.
Eventually, though, Isak stops and just holds him, leaning his forehead against his chest as the smile slowly falls from his face. Even doesn’t push; doing so wouldn’t help, only make Isak return to his shell. He just holds him, resting his head on the other boys hair. They breathe; in and out, together.
The hint of a smile appears on Even’s face, out of pure relief that Isak is finally allowing him to help. Then, he frowns. “Did something happen to her?” The idea of Sana doing something, anything, to hurt Isak is completely out of the question to him. She’s one of the nicest people he’s ever met, and she’s even nicer when she’s with Isak. The two of them just seem to get each other, and if she’s upset about something Even can definitely see Isak being affected by it.
“No. Or, well. I don’t know.” He pauses. Even feels his warm breaths against his chest. “She… She won’t talk to me.”
It’s about the fight, Even realizes, and something sinks inside him. He pushes it away. Not now. This is about Isak.
“Is it… Is it about Elias?”
“She talked about him. Said she was sorry. But she wouldn’t keep talking to me after that.”
Even isn’t sure what to say. He runs his hand through Isak’s curls, pressing little kisses to the top of his head. When he finally speaks up, he’s more quiet than he was earlier. “I think she just needs some time. This probably hasn’t been easy for her.”
“No. She hates me.” Isak says it half-jokingly, but there’s an unmistakable undertone that Even recognizes far too well. This is what Isak sounds like when his relationship with his parents is going through a particularly rough phase, or when something he did in the past comes back to haunt him, or when someone -once in a blue moon - gives their joint hands a weird look and all that shame comes rushing back to him. Even leans down to meet his gaze.
“Isak. She apologized to you, right? Why would she do that if she hates you?”
Isak’s eyes remain on the ground, and Even knows it’s not getting any better than this. Not today. He caresses the younger boy’s cheek again, moving up to his forehead and back down again; touching the bruise on his eye, carefully. Slowly, he presses a kiss to Isak’s lips. No tongue, no moving around; just a soft, simple kiss. “Hey.”
Isak’s eyes are closed. At the sound of Even’s voice they slowly open again; moving back up to the older boy’s eyes.
Even moves back in, gently rubbing his nose against Isak’s. “I love you. Okay?”
Isak’s mouth hangs open ever so slightly. Even loves it when he does that; it’s like he still can’t believe Even has said those words, as if they both haven’t already said them countless times. He smiles a little. “Okay.”
Then, after leaning in even closer to Even, he adds; “I love you too”, and Even decides that they’ll be fine. They’re always fine.
Your imagines are my favorite btw! Can you do an imagine where some of our friends are at the house watching a movie and even though you and kian aren’t together you start ‘teasing eachother’ under the blanket and Jc gets suspicious THANK YOU
‘Everyone, be quiet now!’ Sam said when the movie that we were about to watch started playing.
Kian and the rest of the guys asked me if I wanted to come over and watch a movie with them. Since I had nothing in planI accepted their invitation. I love spending time with all of them at the same time, but that doesn’t happen very often since everyone has a busy schedule. The guys travel a lot and I’m still in college so it’s hard to find time to hang out with all of them even though I spend the most time with Kian. All of the guys are my best friends, but with Kian I have some kind of really special relationship. I’m definitely the closest with him and it’s really hard to explain our relationship. A lot of people sometimes think that we’re together, but we just love each other maybe a little bit more than other best friends do.
‘Shhh, it’s starting.’ Jc said who was sitting on the floor with his back leaned on the couch. Sam and Trevor were also sitting on the floor like Jc, Ricky and Connor on the one side of the couch and Kian and I were laying under a blanket on the other side of the couch. My back was pressed against his body and he had his arm around my waist and chin on my shoulder.
‘You good?’ He asked quietly.
‘Mhm’ I murmured.
An hour later…
‘Oh my God, this is so cute.’ I said at the scene where Jason was comforting his girlfriend Lilly with whom he ran away. Her parents didn’t let her be with him because they hated his parents. Lilly’s parents even threatened her if she keeps seeing him that they’ll send her to her aunt in London (btw Lilly lived in New York). Basically, they said they’ll do anything just to break them apart so they had no choice but to run away together. Currently, they were staying at Jason’s friend’s apartment in Philadelphia. Lilly was concerned about the whole situation that they were in so he was comforting her.
‘Tipical love story.’ Kian said.
‘I want someone to love me like this.’ I said quietly.
‘Well, I love you.’ He said making me blush a little.
‘I know, but that’s not the same.’
‘Yeah, it is. I love you even more than he loves her.’ Kian said making me chuckle quietly a little.
‘What?’ He laughed in my neck. ‘Would you run away with me?’ He asked quietly just for me to hear it.
‘What?’ I asked surprised.
‘Would you run away with me if I asked you to?’
‘I don’t know. Why would you want to run away with me? We don’t have a reason to run away, they do.’ I said.
‘We don’t need one. We could just do it.’
‘You’re crazy.’ I said.
‘So you wouldn’t?’ He asked. ‘Alright.’ He said unwrapping his arms from around me.
‘Kiaan’ I whined pulling his arms back and putting them to the place they were before. ‘Stop. You know I would.’ I whispered.
‘You would?’ He asked and I nodded. He smiled and kissed my cheek bringing me even closer to his body if that was even possible.
An hour later…
I guess I fell asleep during the film because I was woken up by quiet talk between Kian and Jc.
‘You still haven’t answered my question.’ Jc said quietly probably so that he doesn’t wake me up. I was curious what they were talking about so I just kept pretending that I was asleep.
‘What?’ Kian said nervously.
‘What’s that between you and y/n?’
‘What are you talking about?’ Kian asked.
‘Dude, c’mon, don’t play stupid. Like I didn’t see all that cuddling and hear your small talk and all that cute shit that COUPLES do.’ Jc said.
‘Jc, we’re just…very very close best friends.’ He said slowly caressing my arm under the blanket.
‘Yeah, sure. You love her, don’t you?’
‘I do, a lot.’ He said and my heart started beating faster.
‘Do you have, you know like, feelings for her?’ Jc asked again.
‘I-I don’t know..I think I do, but you know..’
‘Why don’t you tell her? I’m like 95% sure that she has feelings for you too.’ Truth.
‘I don’t want to ruin our friendship. I don’t want anything to change. I can’t lose her, Jc.’ Kian said playing with my hair.
Oh, God, he has feelings for me?
‘You two are made for each other, trust me.’ Jc said making Kian smile.
‘I wish she thinks the same.’
If you only knew.
‘Man, I’m tired. I’m gonna go to bed.’ Jc said getting up. ‘Goodnight’
‘Night, man.’ Kian said as Jc left.
I turned on the other side to face Kian. I wraped my arms around him and said quietly ‘You won’t ruin anything and nothing will change. You’ll never lose me, no matter what.’ I looked up at him smiling and his mouth fell open.
‘I-I..’ He sighed and then closed his eyes and smiled. ‘I love you, y/n.’
‘I love you too.’ I said and lifted myself up a little and kissed him.
Do you have any fake/pretend relationships aus but not between Harry and Louis?
Hi, sorry I couldn’t really find any fics like that. Every time I was searching, I just kept finding fake/pretend relationships between Harry and Louis - so sorry about that! If anyone knows of any then don’t hesitate to send an ask and I will gladly make a post of them all!
But here are some of my favourite fake/pretend relationship Au’s between Louis and Harry (for others too):
After a misunderstanding with Liam’s mother, Louis agrees to accompany his best friend to a family wedding and pretend to be the world’s best boyfriend. But their simple plan goes awry when he learns that Harry, ex-boyfriend/ex-love of Louis’ life, will also be in attendance.
Notoriously closeted boyband member Harry Styles is famous on a global scale, meanwhile Louis, as his best friend, is back home in Manchester, living the typical life of a 24 year old. When Harry needs Louis with him in LA, a publicity stunt gone wrong changes their friendship forever. A fake-relationship AU between two lifelong best friends.
Faking It by TheCellarDoor [ 1/1 | English | 46,173 ] ***
Aka Harry pretends to date his best friend to escape unwanted attention from a too insistent classmate and hopes it won’t blow up in his face. Featuring embarrassing dildo accidents, awkward boners, longing, first times, late night conversations, emotional discoveries and Niall as the exasperated friend with bad advice.
My parents divorced when I was eight years old. They had just purchased a house together in the woods in Walker, Louisiana, which is twenty or so miles from Baton Rouge. After seeing his subsequent relationships, I realize that this is something my father does when his marriage is rocky- he sells his house and then buys or builds a new one for the sake of distraction. I’ve actually seen it work for him. Once engaged in a new project and excited by the possibilities, his wife might forget to ask why he was out so late, who he was with, and why he smells like another woman’s perfume. But this time, his trick didn’t work. My mother had had enough. I don’t even think we lived in that house in the woods for a full year before my mother suggested he go stay with his whore instead.
I wasn’t terribly upset by this. My father and I had never been close. He was a no-nonsense high school coach, and I was bookish and skinny and weird. Far from the athlete he’d wanted. Though, to be fair, he didn’t try to push me into sports or pressure me to follow football. Instead, he ignored me entirely in favor of my little brother, Trent, who seemed like he was born with a ball in his hand. Trent didn’t play one sport, he played all of them, starting when he was merely a toddler. I never resented either of them for this, I merely mention it to help paint a picture of my brother. If Trent and I had been one person, we’d be a very well-rounded individual. Me, precocious and dreamy and even-tempered. Trent, sporty and rough and emotional, living up very well to the reputation that came with his bright red hair even when he was still in diapers. You couldn’t have two more opposite children. But we loved each other fiercely, particularly in the early years of our parents’ divorce. Though there were three bedrooms in this house in the woods, Trent and I shared one, not wanting to be separated.
Hi! I want to write a fic based around Peter having memory loss after a mission and his s/o explaining his life. His spidey powers, uncle Ben and how he's trans. "You were a girl" s/o ads, listing up basic facts about Peter. "I don't.. Feel like a girl" he says softly. "You're not. You're a boy- a man, you always were. You started off as a girl, a little mistake in the womb," s/o replies. "You were pretty as a girl, but happiness looks so much better on you"
as someone who has been asked a billion times why i “chose” to be trans, and who has repeatedly had to tell people “yeah, i probably could have kept pretending that i was a girl when i knew i was a boy, but dealing with transphobia is better than looking forward to dying just so i can get away from this body” that last part hits home
This is a request :) Plot: You are the shy girl in school. Everyone has a crush on Josh including you. What you didn’t know was he also liked you. You both didn’t want to admit it. He soon later tells you but you back off unsure if he was trying to trick you or not.
Readers Point Of View Here we go again. I just need to get through this last year and I’m off to collage. Me being me I go straight to the spot I always go to when I’m early for school. There was a tree behind the school in the field where I always go to relax and get away from the world.
To get to this spot you needed to go through the whole in the fence and it would lead to an area surrounded by trees. Like a small forest. No one knows about it but me and I wanted to keep it that way.
As I go to this spot I see Josh, the boy everyone liked. A small blonde haired girl was trying to talk to him but Josh looked away looking rather annoyed. He turned his head and saw me. His eyes went wide as he saw me. I took this as a bad sign and walked faster.
“Y/n! Wait up.” Josh called. Getting away from the blonde girls grip.
I started to walk faster than I did before. Wanting to get away from the attention.
“Why, are you walking so fast?” He said while grabbing my arm. I flinched a little. It didn’t hurt I was just frightened. “Oh, sorry.”
“Listen, I gotta go.” I then walked away going to my spot. I felt bad but I couldn’t handle the attention that would come if I talked to him. People would ask questions.
“Oh, okay then.” Mumbling something under his breath sounding sad.
Okay, now I feel really bad but I need to go. I put my headphones and slowly go on my way. The day was chilly. My oversized sweater was appropriate for this weather. The orange and red leaves spread out across the field making the dull green grass pop out more.
I went through the fence and lied down on the bench that was worn out and damaged but that’s what I liked about it. I stayed like that until the bell rang signaling that it was time to go to first period. I got up and ran towards the school not wanting to be late. I was supposed to go five minutes early but I was to consumed by the music.
First period was boring. The teacher kept on talking about how we should be able to follow the rules at our age. Our school did this thing where they reminded us about the school rules every once a month. While I was sitting there, I felt a someone staring at me and I began to feel very uncomfortable.
I debated looking around and making eye contact. I then proceeded to look around. My eyes landed on Josh and he seemed to be doing the same. I didn’t know what to do. Act normal Y/n. Wait, how do I act normal? I’m over thinking this.
Thank god the bell rang. I packed all my things and grabbed my bag then got out of there as fast I could. The same cycle repeated until lunch. Well, everything but the whole Josh thing.
Forgetting about lunch I went straight to my spot. For a shy girl It was taking a big risk doing this. It was technically going off school campus. But I was used to it. This time it was lightly raining. I was so lost in my head that when someone tapped my shoulder I screamed. Not loud but it wasn’t quite either.
“Wow, calm down! It’s me Tyler.” He said with wide eyes not expecting me to scream. “Okay, didn’t see that coming.” Tyler chuckled.
“How did you find me? No one knows this place but me.” I was confused as to how he found me.
“Well, that’s not true anymore I guess. Josh told me. This sounds creepy but he kinda watched you a couple times when you go here. I won’t cover him on that.” Tyler laughed. I just blushed. Damn, I must be really red.
“Tyler, not to be rude but what are you doing here?” I was kinda mad that this wasn’t my secret place anymore.
“Oh, I don’t really know. Josh went with some girl and I wanted to come over here and just talk to someone that isn't 'fake’ and only interested in getting in my pants. Oh, and I need advice.” Tyler smiled shyly.
“I’m not that good at advice Tyler. Just warning you now.” I said honestly.
“Its okay. I can’t talk to Josh because he’s always distracted by a girl. He doesn’t like the attention but he says that he needed to get ‘some girl’ out of his mind.” Tyler talked about Josh kinda like he was annoyed.
“And you don’t like that I’m guessing.” Pointing out the obvious.
“No, because if he really liked the girl then he should say something. Honestly, Humans are so confusing.” Tyler sighed. “Tell me about it.” I agreed.
“The bells about to ring, Ill talk to you later.” Tyler smiled showing his teeth.
“Okay, thanks for the talk.” I waved.
“No problem. It was nice talking to you. I really needed it.” He said before walking off.
The rest of the day went by slow. It felt like time went by slower just torture me. When I walked home I hummed along to the song. The day was quite. It rained a little harder but I enjoyed it. I looked around only to see Josh with headphones in walking on the other side of the road. He hasn’t noticed me yet so I walked faster.
“Y/n! Y/n wait!” I heard Josh call my name. Damn, I was caught. I kept walking pretending that I couldn’t hear him because of the music.
“Wait!” Josh grabbed my shoulders.
“Umm..” I froze taking out my headphones. “Hi?” I said shyly.
He chuckled and that made me blush even harder.
“Hey.” He smiled. “How are you?”
“Umm.. good I guess.” Trying not to freak out.
“Okay, I wanted to tell you something.” He looked nervous.
“Oh god” Not meaning to say that aloud.
“It’s nothing bad. I hope.” He whispered the last heard it anyways. God he was so cute. Shut up Y/n.
“Umm…Okay. I’m just going to say it. I like you, Y/n.” He smiled nervously.
“Oh. Oh. Okay.” Not knowing how to respond.
I didn’t believe him. Tyler said that Josh was hanging out with other girls and just the other day he was kissing some girl in the hallway.
“Is this a prank or something? This isn’t funny Josh but nice try.” I was kinda hurt.
I mean how typical. ‘Lets get the shy girls hopes up and that’ll be funny haha"
“What? No, Its not like that. Y/n I truly mean it.” Josh looked hurt. I just don’t know.
“How can I believe you?” I said unsure.
“You can’t but you can trust me.”
“Josh, I just don’t know.” I turned away. I started to walk but he pulled me back. He reached out and put his hands on my face gently.
“Please?” He looked me in the eyes and his eyes were beautiful. I’ve never noticed them before.
“But those girls?” I questioned.
“They were a distraction. I know it sounds stupid but I thought I could never have you and I couldn’t handle that.” He sounded honest.
“Do you trust me?” he asked. I thought about it for a moment before nodding.
“Good.” He said before pulling me in. I then felt his lips on mine and it was odd. It felt like a romantic cliché movie with the rain. We pulled away. All we could do was smile like an idiot.
RUBY: You mean Mike Makowski? That guy that used to pretend he’s a vampire? RUBY: Haha, no. I’d know about something like that and would’ve reported it already! RUBY: You know, I’m the eyes and ears of South Park! EVERYONE: … RUBY: Wait. Really?!
RUBY: Seriously? I thought you guys hate each other.
Little Story from 3rd sem College days(3 years ago)
On those days I hadn’t even heard of the word Asexual or Aromantic so I had never thought that being like that is acceptable or normal. But still you can’t think differently even though you don’t know what you are. So here’s the story-
I was in a programming lecture and there was a girl who had asked our mutual friends to ask me if I like her. And they asked me “How does she look, in front of her." I cracked a joke and avoided that situation. After the class they told me that she asked them to do that because she wanted to go on a date with me. I said "I don’t wanna date." They said "Heck dude, she is hot, why do you not wanna go on a date with her”
I said “I don’t feel like that man”
After a few days When I was moving with my friend and I asked my friend “Dude, wanna go for dinner?” and she was following me and said “Would you like to come with me for dinner?”
I really didn’t want to, so i simply kept on walking pretending that I hadn’t heard what she said. She was of course a nice person but I’m an Aro-Ace and I just get a repulsive feeling when I think about dating and stuff.
So what I wanna say is, that’s not like Aro-Aces can’t get a date, they can, but some may not like to date, some may like to date, that depends.
You don’t have to go against your thought because of society or other reasons.
A Happy Valentine’s day to the Aro-Aces in advance! :)
