Meant To Be

Taking place immediately following the reunion scene in 3x18…

Oswald and Ed are forced to work out through their emotions when the Court of Owls throws them in neighboring cages. 

The bars of his cage were cold beneath slender fingers. Oswald gripped the iron tighter, his knuckles aching. All the different ways he had imagined meeting Edward Nygma face to face one last time…he never could have predicted this. Oswald blinked, finally, lips beginning to quiver as words reached them at last.

“You killed me…” he said. It came out not as rage but as a whimper. Ed was still gaping at him like he’d seen a ghost, backed a safe distance away from the bars of his neighboring cage. At this break of the silence he swallowed, licked his lips nervously.

“But Oswald,” he whispered, and Oswald closed his eyes at the sound of his name leaving Ed’s lips, “You’re alive.”

“Yes, you’ve already mentioned that,” Oswald clenched his teeth, but the anger wasn’t really there.

“How?” Ed growled, desperately needing a logical explanation. He shook his head, realizing there was something else he needed even more desperately. Even locked up by the Court of Owls somehow his former best friend ended up by his side. It seemed there really was no Edward Nygma without the Penguin. No, not without the Penguin. Without Oswald.

Oswald did not answer him, closed his mouth and said nothing more. He stared at Ed for a long time, those wet, calculating eyes unblinking. He was just so…tired.

Reborn

This story has also been posted to my Ao3 account

Summary: Oswald Cobblepot was dead by his hand. He died beneath the dark waters of Gotham harbour. Edward’s revenge was complete and Isabella’s death was avenged. He should feel at peace, free, but he didn’t. Why did he keep returning to the place he last saw his former friend?


Ghosts weren’t real, but then why did he feel like he was being haunted by one. Shadows seemed to speak to him from the darkness and an invisible thread kept drawing him back. Edward looked out across the dark waters of the bay, thick clouds rolled overhead and brought with it a misty haze. It brewed around him, swirling tendrils licking at his ankles before slithering on down the path, falling off the edge of the dock.

He was dead. He watched him fall, watched him sink into the depths below. A plume of blood flowering in the water obscuring his vision, hiding the anguished look that peered up at him. Oswald Cobblepot was no more. So why did he come back here? Why did he keep returning? It had been weeks since The Penguin fell and still, almost every evening he would return to this spot and stare into the water searching for some semblance of meaning but there was nothing left.

The Penguin was dead, so where did that leave him? ‘You need me, Edward Nygma, just as I need you. You cannot have one without the other ’. No! He proved him wrong. He was stronger like this, stronger without him . He didn’t need anyone. Ed fiddled with his wrists, tugging at the ends of his sleeves as a cool breeze swept the harbour weaving it’s way through the fibres of his clothes. Below him chaotic waves crashed against the dock, their ominous presence perfectly reflecting the turmoil that was stirring within him. A storm was coming.

The banner hung over the porch and the balloons danced in the breeze as the car pulled up to the familiar house. The door opened a second later, with the entirety of its occupants spilling out into the yard. The houses in the neighbourhood joined as well, a few people stepping out on their porches to see the returning hero.

Failsafe

This is it. Failsafe. The episode that broke us all in the span of twenty-five minutes. The episode that changed everything in the Spitfire ship forever. The episode that mind fucked us all because it was so much more intense than a “someone-is-actually-dreaming” scenario. The episode that showed us that nothing good ever happens in the Arctic in Young Justice. A fan favorite. A glorious roller coaster of feels. 

ONWARD.

Some people said that, in hindsight they should have known something was up because there was a distinct lack of time-stamp at the beginning of the episode. And while that’s true, what sort of time-stamp could possibly be used for outer space like that? It opens near the moon in outer space, there’s not exactly a sense of time or place out there, they couldn’t have time-stamped it. However, I suppose they could have time-stamped after that. (but I think we all knew something more than meets the eye was going on when the JL members seemingly got vaporized… we just didn’t know WHAT. And it was glorious)

That rather silent ass shot of the alien ship floating into view is so cool. Like, silent, impending doom approaching in the cold dark that is space. 

John Stewart! <3

CASUALTIES, WE HAVE THE FIRST CASUALTIES. (man I love how you can see their fucking skeletons as they disintegrate. And I know that sounds really fucking morbid but I’m just appreciating the level of detail and, frankly, the darkness of it. That’s pretty fucked up and I love the stuff YJ was able to get away with.)

I like how J’onn, Atom, Supey, and Marvel were just waiting in the fucking launch bay of Batman’s jet like they’re living missiles or something. “FULL DEFENSES DEPLOY. FIRE ZE MISSILES!” 

OH SHIT THERE THEY GO.

Batman’s like “THEY GOT ME? THEY ACTUALLY GOT ME? WHAT THE FUCK I AM BATMAN I DON’T GET GOT.” (also every time I watch this and Batman gets ejected from his vaporized ship, for a split second I always think he’s floating in open space in just a goddamn pilot’s chair instead of an enclosed pod, and I’m like what the fuck Batman you can’t survive that kind of– oh, wait, nope. He’s in a pod.) (like I know he’s Batman but I can’t imagine space being so scared of him that it decides NOT to instantly suffocate him in it’s vacuum, ya know? “Oh shit sorry Batman, sir, didn’t realize it was you, I’ll just make sure you have plenty of air, sir. Pardon me, sir.”)

THERE HE GO. 

Oh, wait, they DID show a time-stamp once it gets to Red Tornado and the Team watching on the screens. So that really wasn’t any kind of giveaway, imo; in that regard, things are going pretty normally, tbh.

“But should we fail, the responsibility falls to you.” But, you know, no pressure. We’re just the entire fucking Justice League, full of power houses that are older and stronger than most of you because we have more experience, so if we die you’re actually rather fucked, but hey! Give it the ole’ college try, as they say, okay? (I’m not actually shitting on the Team here, I lava them to bits and they’re capable, I’m just being a little shit. Because as capable as the Team is, that’s STILL the ENTIRE Justice League and holy shit, that’s intense)

DEATH! DESTRUCTION! JUSTICE!

Okay, so when I started watching Young Justice, my knowledge of the Flash fam was next to nothing (that seems so funny in hindsight, because now I love them to bits and learn as much as I can about them). So I had no idea that Iris was married to the Flash, so I didn’t get why everyone thought this scene with Iris and Flash was so sad. But now I KNOW and it’s just heartbreaking to watch! Like, holy shit. Iris had to act like she doesn’t know who he is, and then he gets fucking vaporized and she’s just– UGH KILL ME. THIS EPISODE IS AWFUL BUT IN A GOOD WAY.

“We’re experiencing technical difficulties.” NO, NO YOU’RE EXPERIENCING A WHOLE LOT MORE THAN TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES, I’M PRETTY SURE YOUR NEWS WOMAN AND CAMERA GUY JUST GOT REMOVED FROM EXISTENCE, ALONG WITH THE CAMERA. SO LIKE, YOU’RE SO BEYOND “TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES” IT’S NOT EVEN FUNNY, YOUR CAMERA DOESN’T EVEN EXIST ANYMORE.

I like that you can see the wing bones on Hawkgirl and Hawkman.

OH GOD NO, NOT OLLIE AND DINAAAAAAH.

Whelp. Good-bye Justice League.

Nothing out of place here.

“So what are we waiting for, a theme song?” No, we already did that, Conner, get with the times.

Okay when Robin highlights all the aliens on the map, the way all the red splotches look kind of reminds me of Plague Inc. (Robin totally plays Plague Inc. Probably Wally, too. They’re diabolical little shits that destroy the entire world every single time. Ruthlessly, without mercy!)

“Yeah, break it down, build more! Hit those ugly aliens with their own mojo! Ow!” “Martian and Kryptonian in the house.” (Wally stop pretending it actually hurts when Artemis elbows you, you know you just like that she’s touching you/standing close to you, don’t even lie)

“Not that all aliens are automatically ugly.” Nice save, Wally.

I suppose the Arctic is the best place to build a Fortress of Solitude, considering no one in their right mind would come out there willingly unless they’re a fucking climate scientist or something. Or a penguin. (Superman befriends penguins don’t tell me otherwise)

Gotta love the snow stealth outfits! <3

ARTEMIS STOP FLIRTING WITH DISASTER OKAY, I KNOW WHERE THIS IS GOING JUST STOP.

You’d think Conner would have heard that, too. Poor Wolf, sacrificed himself for his grumpy daddy. :(

You can tell that the death of Wolf jars them, for sure, but it’s not enough to cause Megan to take control of the scenario and make them forget it’s all real. I think that was kind of an interesting thing there, that when Wolf dies it’s the first time we see them get at least mildly shaken, but they’re able to shrug it off and keep going because, well… yeah.

ARTEMIS NOOOO DON’T BE A HEROOOOOOO.

(I’m so cruel, why do I have this screenshot? Oh yeah, SO I CAN HURT PEOPLE, MWAHAHAHAHAHA– and myself *cries*)

AND NOW ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE.

I remember, there were some people trying to claim that Miss M influenced Wally into being so upset about Artemis dying, and that is the biggest crock of shit. M’gann didn’t make anyone FEEL anything, all she did was make them forget. SHE forgot and they were all connected to her, so they forgot, too. and anyway, by that goddamn logic, don’t you think the rest of the Team would have been screaming and crying and swearing vengeance just as hard as Wally? Because if M’gann was making Wally feel that way, it would be affecting the other’s too. They all care about Artemis and they all mourned her, but M’gann and Wally took it the hardest, because Artemis is M’gann’s fucking earth sister and Wally fucking loves Artemis and doesn’t even realize it, and now she’s fucking GONE. (anyway I’m moving on, you’re wrong, good-bye)

Can we just appreciate Kaldur’s anger and how he just like… pwns the fuck out of that ship like a boss? I always thought those were some pretty sweet moves, especially the icicle spikes. Katara would be proud of your waterbender mastery, Kaldur. 

God, Wally’s voice. The way he says that, that’s the kind of like… that kind of uncontrollable emotion, like, you’re feeling something so goddamn deeply that you can’t even keep a lid on it, you can’t sort it out, and it’s just roiling right underneath the surface. Like, Wally just hasn’t even fully processed what the fuck just happened, all he knows is that Artemis was there, and now she’s gone, and there’s something twisting in his stomach and all he can see is red at that moment, because those stupid fucking aliens took her away from him, and he wasn’t even fast enough to try and save her, and why did she have to be so fucking stupid and sacrifice herself like that? “They’re dead! Every single alien, if it’s the last thing I do!” He’s fucking pissed. If he hated those aliens before, it’s nothing compared to raw fucking hatred burning through him after they take Artemis. He only wanted to stop them before, now he wants to make sure every single one of them dies the same way Artemis just did. (intense emotions!Wally is the greatest thing ever. He’s so much more faceted than just being a clown/goofball, and people tend to forget that sometimes, maybe even me)

Then they’re on the Bioship and Wally is still fuming, he’s still hurting, and seeing her empty seat in front of him isn’t helping anything. And there’s probably a god awful ache in his chest where her sarcasm and banter used to be and he feels more empty than he ever thought he could just because she isn’t there, she’s not there and she’s not coming back because he saw her bones in the snow, and why wasn’t he fast enough? And I love the way he just loses it and screams and beats the consoles with his fists; I love that raw explosion of emotion, like, he can’t even speak, all he can do is just scream because everything hurts and nothing’s right anymore and he just wants her back because he needs her there, he needs her elbow digging into his side and he needs her sassy remarks and he needs her not letting him get away with nothing, and he needs that chance back. That chance for something with her that he barely even understands, but he just knows it’s gone now, the chance is lost, and he’ll never get to find out what it was. 

Go away, Eiling, you piece of shit. We all know your game.

“We will help you salvage as many of the alien’s cannons as we can.” Uh, what good would that do? I mean, the Bioship was able to integrate it into her systems, but what the fuck is the military going to do with detached cannons? what could they possibly attach them to to use them? Or would they simply try to drive one of the alien ships? (idk)

“They’re really gone…” 

And now Wally begins grasping at straws. Just sitting there listening to the convo, and then his scientific brain starts reeling, and his heart starts thumping a little bit because hello, Wally! Teleportation! (nevermind the fact that you saw their bones

“I knew it, look! It’s giving off Zeta beams! The same stuff that powers our Zeta tubes, t-this thing doesn’t disintegrate, it teleports! Artemis is alive!” He sounds so fucking ridiculously happy, oh my god it hurts me. He’s like, 100% convinced there’s a chance that she’s alive, that she’s waiting somewhere for him them, that they’ll find her and she’ll snark about them taking so long and he’ll run at her and hug her and then make some lame excuse for it after he puts her down. Like, there’s this balloon of happiness and relief expanding in his chest because she’s actually alive somewhere, all they have to do is find her, and oh god he wants to find her, he needs to see her again so that he knows for sure, something solid and tangible. 

“Maybe…” “No ‘maybes’, they’re all alive!” He’s grasping at it so hard that he won’t even give Robin the chance to puncture a hole in it. He’s desperate. He needs her to be okay. There’s no other option, because the only other outcome is that she really is gone, and he can’t fucking handle that, he can’t even fucking fathom that idea; she can’t be gone, she’s a spitfire, his spitfire. So he latches onto the idea of Zeta radiation with all of his heart and that’s the only thing that keeps him going for the rest of the episode. And Robin knows it, so that’s why he uses it.

Kaldur and Conner aren’t convinced either. Only Wally and M’gann are optimistic/desperate enough to believe it. Oh god, can I please just hug them both until they can’t breathe? Precious bbys.

“That… didn’t feel like…” Teleportation. T_T

Kid Flash starts to help and Kaldur’s just like NOT TODAY! And shoves him through. 

Conner jumping into the Zeta tube instead of just walking seriously reminds me of how in World of Warcraft there’s an inexplicable need to jump INTO the dungeon instance portals rather than just walk straight into them. XD

Good-bye, Kaldur. :(

I love how Happy Harbor bay near Mount Justice is somehow completely untouched by the alien invasion. Wat?

“If we really believe the aliens are teleporting their victims.” “We do!” Oh, Wally, baby…

“Worst case, he’s teleported inside, and we set him free along with Artemis. And uh, Aqualad, and everyone.” God, he’s so concerned about seeing Artemis again that he literally doesn’t even give two shits about anyone else. They’re safe, they’re all safe, but the only one that matters is Artemis. 

“HUZZAH!” Damnit, Alfred! XD

THERE GO CONNER.

“It’s alright, we’ll find him with Artemis. I know it.” WALLY STOP MY HEART CAN’T TAKE YOU ANYMORE. YOU’RE LIKE A BROKEN RECORD FOR HER, SHE’S THE ONLY THING THAT’S KEEPING YOU GOING.

“No, my mind is clearer now, the disintegration beam is exactly that. There is no detention facility, no prisoners to rescue. Our mission holds no purpose.” “No! You’re wrong! The Zeta radiation proves she’s alive, she’s–!” “Stop it, KF! I’ve been scanning for League and Team signals since we got inside. They’re not here. Artemis is gone.” 

Wally is so fucking desperate and you can hear it in his voice. I feel like maybe a small, logical part of his mind, somewhere deep in the back, he knew that the beams weren’t teleporters. But he was so goddamn desperate for her to be okay that he latched onto it anyway and made himself believe it as hard as he could, told himself that he would see her again if he just kept trucking through. Robin knew that was the only thing keeping Wally going, too, without being wreckless or useless, and so he used that to his advantage. It’s part of the many things that make him say “I don’t want to be the Batman, anymore.” in Disordered. He hated fueling Wally’s false hope, but he had to.

And then I think maybe Wally goes back to anger. But it’s a defeated kind of anger, like, he can’t fucking take this shit anymore. She’s gone, but maybe she wasn’t, but now she really is. His emotions have been yanked all over the place and beaten to a pulp and now all he wants to do is blow this ship up and everything inside of it. He swore before that he would destroy every single alien, and now that’s what he intends to do. It won’t bring her back, nothing will, but maybe he can get some kind of revenge for her.

“You knew. You knew from the beginning why we were really here.”

^ That is the face of a boy that has been defeated. Istg. Wow. Okay. Fuck you, Failsafe.

“16 seconds and counting.” It’s always 16 seconds. 16 seconds and counting, 16 seconds til ceasing… ffs! XD I think I hate the number 16 because of Young Justice. 

“We’ll follow as soon as we blow those doors.” Right. Wally and Dick never had any intentions of leaving that ship. Goddamn that tears me up. Holy shit NO. WHY. STOP SACRIFICING YOURSELVES OH MY GOD THESE POOR CHILDREN, NO FUCKING WONDER THEY NEED LIKE TWO FUCKING WEEKS AND PROBABLY MORE OF THERAPY!

And they’re not even scared about it. They just look at each other and nod. Because there’s literally nothing fucking left for either of them. This is their last fight, they’ve done all they can do.

And Wally literally thought, as he died in that fiery explosion, that he the last thing he ever did was destroy every single alien. He went out thinking he had blown their entire fucking armada up with Dick. And that probably gave both of them some kind of piece right before they went, too. (my shipper heart is telling me his last thought was of Artemis, too, considering how much he mentions her throughout this episode)

GODDAMN THESE ENEMY RESPAWN RATES, WE JUST KILLED THE RAID BOSS AND IT INSTA-RESPAWNED BEFORE WE COULD EVEN LOOT IT. (I’m sorry, I’m sorry I had to)

Goddamn, that part where J’onn STABS M’gann is like the most intense shit. Actually, this whole fucking episode is hardcore as shit, but like, he STABS her! Like, you see him use his fist but if you look at her back you can see it come to a FUCKING POINT, LIKE, HE MORPHED HIS HAND INTO A POINT AS HE WAS PUNCHING HER, SO THAT HE ACTUALLY WINDED UP STABBING HER. HOLY SHIT.

ME TOO, MEGAN, ME TOO.

That huge gasp of air as if she’s coming up from the water, or, you know, WAKING FROM A GODDAMN NIGHTMARE SIMULATION OR SOMETHING.

“Exercise?” God… jesus FUCK, they’re all so confused. 

“But all that changed, when Artemis died.”

WALLY. BBY. Oh god. CAN I PLEASE GET OFF THIS ROLLER COASTER.

GOOD BYE I AM GONE GONE GONE INTO THE SUN.

First of all, this is an interpretation. A head-canon. My feelings. These are my thoughts on Anzu. If you think I’m wrong that is completely okay, but don’t try to lecture me why your opinion is better.

This is just my head-canon of Anzu based on what the crazy Penguin during the Noah arc said. He mentions in the original Japanese version that Anzu’s father is a business man and that they have spend some years outside Japan when she was still a child. So this made me think about her whole situation both manga and anime. People tend to hate her a lot or make up the most craziest stories about her parents. She lacks characterization and even though I like her I agree that both anime and manga wasted a lot of potential. They could have develop her better. Actually, most of the female character’s could have been better developed.


Why is it that she values friendship so much that people would hate her for this?

I think that the reason why Anzu values friendship over anything else is that she hasn’t any siblings and was pretty much left alone when she was a child. Her father was working all day so she was living all alone with her mother who would go to musicals with her now and then. So she started to dance away her loneliness and tried to find new friends. Since she was in a new country and didn’t know neither the people nor the language she was frustrated and felt lonely, missing her friends in Japan. She was torn away from her usual environment and dragged into another country.


They probably moved to America, New York. First she hated this country trying to stay distant to it but her homesickness made her feel depressed. She was thinking a lot about her home and she just wanted to go back. There was no one she could talk to and she didn’t understand English yet so it was difficult for her to find new friends. She cried a lot and missed Yuugi who even brought games to her. She felt sorry that she smashed that game only because she wasn’t good at it. She wanted to see him again and play games with him. She felt sad and left alone until her mother took her into a musical that made her realize how interesting this country was. The dancers and singers in that musical took her pain away and for the first time since long she felt happy and at ease. The music, the lights, the dancers and their costumes fascinated her introducing her to a new world.

The musicals she has seen gave her inspiration and dancing made it easier for her to forget her sadness and homesickness. Since she was still young she was influenced easily and started to love America and dancing.


After all, there is no actual reason for her to go to America only to study dance. She could study dance in her own country as well but for some reason it has neither been explained in the manga nor the anime why she insists on leaving her homeland. Is it really necessary for her to leave Japan to become a dancer? Japanese people value their traditions and their country a lot. This always made me wonder why a girl like her had such an urge to leave her homeland. Why she was ready to leave everything behind. During the manga Shadi enters Anzu’s soul room in an attempt to lure out Yami no Yuugi. Inside he sees items that represents Anzu’s dream of becoming a dancer in New York and a photo of a hero, whose face is blank. Even her soul room reminds me more of a young American teenager than of a Japanese girl.


Of course, this is just my interpretation of Anzu but I think the mix up of the anime and manga does make sense here and would explain a lot about her.


Anzu is one of the character’s who don’t get much characterization neither in the anime nor the manga. Although she is the main heroine she reminds me more of a minor character since we don’t see much about her background. There really is just one moment in the anime where that Penguin says something. It’s easily overheard. Many people hate her for being shallow and always lecturing others about friendship. But I think that she isn’t really lecturing but that she is only trying to help. This is just her personality.


In summary, Anzu was still very young. She may have been in kindergarten or elementary school when she had to leave America. It doesn’t really matter. What I am trying to say is that she was forced to leave her homeland because of the work of her father. Yuugi was like a kid brother to her who she wanted to protect and with whom she could laugh and have fun. But she couldn’t see him for several years, she worried about him since he was easily ripped and hurt by others. Yuugi has a soft and kind personality and probably has been bullied before. She always protected him.


When her father finished his work they agreed to go back to Japan. After they got back to Japan her father got a different position in his company so that he didn’t have to move around all the time and was able to stay in his homeland. Anzu who finally got back to her old life realized how important friendship was and that she wanted to become a dancer. Dancing was her way of dealing with her feelings and made her feel comfortable and calm. To me it was always strange that she knew what she wanted to do with her life although she was only 16.Many young people have problems to find out what they want from life.


Since there were times in her life where she felt lonely and sad without having anyone to talk she started to value friendship more than anyone else. Even Yuugi mentioned somewhere during the manga that it has been a long time since they last walked together to school. This might be because she wasn’t around and lived somewhere else. Even Sugoroku said that she has grown a lot which means that he didn’t see her in a long time. He knew how Anzu looked when she was young but he had no idea how much she changed over the years. He even points her breast size out since it did surprise him so much how much she has grown.


So I interpret that she wasn’t around. She lived somewhere else.

That is also the reason why she values Yuugi as a friend so much and tries to protect him. Yuugi always has been an important friend of hers. She even protected him against bullies and this might explain her sense of justice as well. Since Yuugi who was weak and hated violence was bullied she felt the urge to protect him. So she hates injustice because other people hurt her most important childhood friend. They were like siblings and she valued him a lot until they lived apart from each other because of her family circumstances. When she came back her urge to find many friends and have people to share her interests with has grown stronger and stronger. Although it does seem like that Yuugi-tachi are their only friends in the manga (and anime) I believe that she has way more friends than we expect. You don’t believe me?


One day she realized that they didn’t have much in common and that Yuugi was the opposite of her. She was open, while Yuugi was shy. She loved to go out and meet other people, while Yuugi rather stayed at home playing the newest games. She was interested in life-style and fashion, while Yuugi only cared for games. So they had different interests and she started to hang up with others as well. I don’t think that Yuugi was her only friend. If that was the case she would have stayed together with him and spent most of her free time with him. But Yuugi even wishes for a friend who doesn’t leave him alone and never betrays him. Couldn’t this be because he felt disappointed about Anzu who left to another country and easily found new friends when she came back? He wanted friends so badly although he already had a very good and important friend on his side. This was always making me wonder about what happened between these two.  


Even in the first chapter of the manga she left Yuugi alone in order to play basketball with her other classmates. Just take into account that she was the class president which obviously means that her classmates respect her and consider her a trustworthy person. To me she seems like a self-confident person whose cheerful personality tends to make other people smile. Hanging around with her is really comfortable that is why she is popular in her class and even was class president. So I think that Yuugi was still important to her, but that she also had other friends around her so that Yuugi felt exluded and maybe thought that he wasn’t important for her anymore. Though she likes him a lot and would never leave him alone.


What I’m trying to say is, that Yuugi is her most important friend but that she has many other people around her which shows how important friendship is for her since she is afraid to lose the people she cares about again.


Thus, the years she spent in America made her more mature than others in her age. She is self-confident, determined, convincing, powerful and knows how to defend herself with words. Even bullies like Jonouchi and Honda respect her. She works hard to achieve her goal to become a dancer. She wants to leave her homeland in order to study dance overseas and she sees forward to it. She isn’t afraid of leaving but she rather enjoys the thought of meeting new people to share her dreams with. She realized how important it is to have people around you who support you and with who you can laugh with. So even in America she will easily find new friends because she is cheerful and kind person who would never betray anyone.

In summary, she values friendship because she is afraid to be alone again and experienced how it feels to be left alone. There were times in her life where she had no one to talk. This would explain why it is so important to her to remind Yuugi-tachi that they can always count on each other. Thus, I don’t think that she exaggerates with her behavior because that is how she really feels about her friends which, if you ask me, makes her a wonderful person. And it’s not like that she is rambling about friendship all the time, this is what 4Kids made her look like. She isn’t that persistent about friendship in the Japanese version.


I can’t understand why people hate her so much. Only because she has a crush on the main protagonist (Yami no Yuugi)? I have never seen people bashing on Mai. She still is a wonderful person with a great personality. Although, when it comes to the manga… okay, that’s a whole different story because I think that manga-Anzu contradicts herself way too often and acts at some times ooc. She even stumples over her own principles so I rather like anime-Anzu since she stays true to herself.

Well, basically, I really like her and I can understand why she values and loves her friends so much.

100 sticky notes-Calum Imagine-

Requested? Nope

R: PG

Words: 2,735

A/N: I was kind of bored so I wrote this.


It was Calum and your third anniversary, it may have been three whole years together but when you woke up Calum wasn’t there. Instead was a sticky note with his hand writing on it, plucking it from his pillow you started reading it in your head. Though you heard his voice while reading it, “ I love the little giggles that slip past your lips whenever we are in an awkward situation.”  Smiling, pulling the covers back standing up and stretching your hands over your head. Letting out a sigh, glancing around the room noticing at least five more sticky notes. Scratching your head, shuffling over to the dresser picking up the note that was stuck on the drawer. “My favorite color wasn’t always purple till I saw you for the first time in your purple dress.” Blushing, picking up the next one that was on the closet door. “ I love it when your are getting clothes out of the closet, you do a little dance while picking out your outfit.” Thinking to yourself that you don’t do that, another note was in the closet.

I love it when you wear this dress, it makes your body even more beautiful. So wear it?” It read, the dress was the same purple dress that he had saw you in at the park that one night. It was a rich royal purple, it was slim and was knee length with lace sleeves. Reading the next note, “I love it when you snore at night even if it is by my ear.”

I love the mumbling sound you make when reading a book.”

Walking into your shared bathroom, starting the shower while reading another note on the mirror. “I love the little dance moves you come up with while brushing your teeth.” Stepping in the hot shower, running my hand underneath the water testing out the heat of the water. Adjusting the water to the perfect temperature you start washing my hair Herbal Essence, messaging in the shampoo and conditioner. After washing my body, stepped out wrapping the towel around the body than another in my hair the best you could. Stepping out of the shower the cold air hitting my bare cold legs, a gasp escaping my mouth. Taking the door out into the hall, the notes scattered the hallway walls.

“I love when you slid into the room on your fluffy socks.”

“Your air guitar skills are better than mine ever could be.”

“Your brownies are something I love to smell at 3 o’clock in the morning.”

The last was on the fridge door, opening the door taking out the eggs and toast. Shuffling over to the cabinets, a scream letting loose when a stuffed tiger fell from the shelf. On it was a sticky note, “I remember the day you told me you always wanted a pet Tiger. Here it is:),” Pushing in the middle of the center a little ‘roar’ was heard from it. Giggling before setting it down and cooking up the breakfast, setting the eggs and toast on a plate. Other notes where on the walls again and one on the TV.

Lost wasn’t my favorite till I watched it with you.”

“I hated the couch when I got it till I saw you curled up on it.”

“I love the day that you got drunk and dipped your hand in paint slapping it on the wall.”

Walking over to the hand print on the wall, running my fingers down the hand-print. Sitting down on the couch, turning on the TV. After watching the news and having no text messages from Calum you decided to get ready for the day. Shaking my hair from the towel, started to brush it plugging in the hair-dryer. Starting to dry it running my fingers through it, rubbing in some heat protect rub. After being done with that and curling it at the ends, you started with the make up; applying some lipstick and eyeliner. Taking the purple dress in hand, shimming it on finishing the rest of the make up. It was simply yet elegant, a neutral smokey eye with red lipstick; grabbing pumps from the closet before noticing another note.

I love these one shoes of yours, the deep red color makes your skin look amazing.”

Slipping those same shoes on, l start my way to the door grabbing my car keys and wallet. A sticky note was on the front door and my key chain.

Though I love you, your driving scares the death out of me.”

“Remember that one day we had that cute notebook kiss in the rain in front of the door?!”

Locking the door behind you, almost slipping when you missed the step. “Damn it. You would think after being here for almost two years I would remember that there.” You grumbled, “ Y/N?” The neighbor next door questioned, walking over a few sticky notes in his hand. “ Hello Mr.Robert, how have you been?” You smiled, resting a hand on his shoulder, Mr.Robert was the nicest old man you have ever came acrossed.  “I have been good dear, though Calum wanted me to give these to you.” He spoke before handing me the stack of sticky notes before saying good-bye walking back to his front porch.

I loved it when we meet Mr.Robert next door. Nicest old man ever.”

“Remember the day that we had that fight? And you told me to leave you alone and you than twisted your ankle.-”

“We argued about whether or not I should or should not take you to the hospital.”

“I loved the day we decorated the front of the house, even if I did have to go to the hospital.”

By now you were walking to your car, unlocking it while reading the final one.

Now if I am right you should be done by at least 12:30pm. The boys should be there right about now.” The last one read, furrowing your eyebrows before hearing the screeching of the tires that was Luke Rover. “Hey get in! We have more sticky notes.” Ashton hollered from the passenger seat, “Yeah and some of them.. Are really fucking cute.” Michael confessed from the back window, jogging over to the rear door that Michael opened. You hopped in, Michael handing you his sticky notes.

“You know I was always scared that you would leave me for Michael till you started calling him Rainbow Dash.”

“I love it when you showed me how to drive stick.”

“Remember that one time we drew on Michael face with permanent mark?”

“I sure do remember that.. Took three whole hours to get the penis off my face.” Michael grumbled turning away to look out the window. “Here take mine, I have been holding them since I got them.” Luke spoke up from the front, one hand on the steering wheel while the other reached back to hand me the notes in his hand. Taking them from his sweaty hands, they were kind of wet from his hands holding them this in trie time.

I love it when you take control while in the bedroom.”

“I love how you are such a sweetheart with anyone, even those who don’t like you.”

“I love how you get all excited when talking about something you love.”

“ Remember where we met?” The last one said, “Here take mine now.” Ashton handed his over to you, before turning back around to pick something off the floorboard. Noticing that it was a cup of tea.

“I remember it like it was three.. Well wait.. It was.. Three years ago.”

“Remember how you spilled that hot tea on me?”

“Than offered to buy me a new shirt, while whipping off the liquid though only making it worse.”

“I told you no, though you were very persistent and told me you would. “  

“That’s when I realized in that short moment I found the one of my dreams.”  

“ Remember our first Christmas together, we got locked out of your apartment and went to that little coffee shop.”

I felt the car come to a stop, grinning when I figured out where we are. ‘Famous Cafe’ was in big letters above the coffee shop that Calum and I both ran too after locking the door by accident. Luckily for us they let us in, offering to us the phone to call someone. “We’ll be waiting out here.” Ashton told me, stepping out of the car slowly walking to the door. I was greeted by Sam the owner and his three daughters, Villa, Alice and Anna. They each held out sticky notes, taking the ones from Sam first.

“God that was terrible, it was also snowing that day just a little bit though. It was also cold as ever.”

“I remember how we stayed there till midnight talking about everything that came to mind, while waiting on your mom.”

“Have I ever mention how much I loved your little town?”

“Well I love it so much that I would love to stay here my whole life.”

Taking the ones from Villa, laughing when you read the first one.

Just not during the winters.. That was brutal.”

“ Maybe one day we could move here permanently.”

“I love how you don’t care what anyone thinks, even if it does hurt your feelings. You just -”

“Brush it off and care on.”

“I admire how you stick up for others, even if you don’t like them.”

Alice had a huge smile on her face while handing you the next notes.

“Animals are one thing we have incommon.”

“Liking huge spiders is something we do not share incommon.”

“You know I still need to get back at you for throwing that huge spider at me.”

“Remember when you convinced me to swim with sharks?”

“Remember how I told you no, but did it anyways.”

“I love how you don’t care what you wear.”

“If it makes you warm and comfy you will wear it.”

Anna was the last one to hand over the sticky notes, she was 9 years old and thought You and Calum were adorable. Even telling you once how much she wanted someone to love as much as you two love each other.

“The first ‘I love you’ was exchanged at the park.”

“The same park we had our first fight, our first kiss.”

“The first muffled ‘I love you.”

“Next stop is the park babe.”  

“Thank you all.” You blurted out jogging out the door, the little bell dinging. “You’re welcome!” Sam and his daughters hollered back to your retreating figure, jumping into the back seat.

“They make such a cute couple.” Villa announced, her sisters nodding their heads in agreement.

“Too the park!” Luke nodded his head, even though he already knew where to take you next. The sun was started to slowly go down, it was only 4 but during the winter it set at such an early time. When you and the boys had left the shop it was only 12, it took four hours to get to the park. “There it is.” You whispered out, noticing how little lights were moving around. The most you could count where 12 lights. We parked in one of the parking spots, someone walked over to my door. Opening it relieving my mother, “Here you go dear.” She held out her hands, taking the notes from her.

“Just like how much you love my mother, I think I love your mother more than you do.”

“I just kid, though she is amazing.”

“I admire how she raised you and your sister all on her own. With no help, none whatsoever.”

“She makes the best desserts.”

Mali was the next one that you walked too, you could slowly start to see that the lights were little lautner’s leading up to something or rather someone one. You just had to get through a couple more people.

“Here you go babe.” Her excited mood radiated off her, taking the notes you started to walk to the next person slowly.

You have has always had this natural scent.”

“I could never place what it smelled like. Now I know what it smells like.”

“The breeze on the first sight of spring. Leaves, crisp air, flowers starting to bloom.”

“It’s the greatest smell in the world.”

David was standing there, his smiling never leaving his face. He pulled you into a tight hug before handing you the notes.

“I know you never had a dad, but my father loves you like another daughter.”

“Your sister is like another sibling too me.”

“Your smile has always made my heart ache, from the first time I saw it.”

“I know you hate it, but I love it.”

“Even your little scar on your stomach from that time you feel from a tree.” 

Your best friend was the next one to greet you, “Only one more person!” She beamed at you, practically shove the notes into your chest.

“If it wasn’t for your best friend, I don’t think we would be here today.”

“She did take my phone and put your number in it.”

“For that I thank her everyday.”

“Even if she does remind me everytime I see her about it.”

“Your friends are all amazing, though mine are cooler.”

“You have always supported us, with everything.”

Y/S/N was standing in front of you, no emotion on her face. Though when she saw you she smiled a warm sincere smile. “Here you go dweeb. Happy for you brat,” She laughed before pulling you in for a hug, something wet hit your arm. Tears were sliding down her face, “Go don’t worry bout me babe.”

Your sister is everything to you.”

“So is your mother but.. You care for your sister more.”

“She is strong, helped raise you.”

“You want to be like her, though I think your sister doesn’t want that.”

“You’re strong like her, persistent like her.”

“Though you are ambiosh.. That’s good.”

You got too the lights, seeing that there wooden boards with writing on it.

“I admire you so much.”

“I love are times we dance in the living room.”

“Love how we got arrested for helping out at a protest.”

“Remember our first date?”

“How we both said screw it and came here instead of a fancy dinner, or movie?”

“Than we had a raccoon chase after us, had to go to the ER since I got bit.”

“Roses are your favorite flower.”

“They soon became my favorites when you had them on the dinner table everyday.”

“I want are kids some day to admire are love.”

“Just like Anna does.”

“I want them to see the love between us, when they see us watching one another.”

“Them to brag about it too there friends.”

“They tell their kids about are love.”

“I want more Christmases together, Easters, Valentines Days.”

You were drawing to the end of the trail of lights and signs that were on the ground and in the trees. Tears were welling up in your eyes as you grew a little emotional at all these memories and confessions. You could make someone standing at the end of the trail, you knew who it was right off the top of your head.

“That’s why I asked your sister, your mom and best friend.”

“If they would let me take your hand in marriage.”

“So we can make more memories, tell are kids and grandchildren about it all.”

“Will”

“You”

“Be”

“Mine?” Calum whispered reading off the sticky note, that was attached to him, going down on one knee, raising the ring in the box up in the air. “I have love you from the moment we met, I knew you were the one for me when we came here for our first date. Will you be my wife?” He spoke, you were shocked but nodded your head. Shouting a “Yes!Yes! Yes!” Multiple times tackling him to the ground when he slide the ring on your finger. You heard clapping coming from behind you both, but you didn’t care placing your hands on either side of his face. “Best Christmas gift ever.” You croaked out, as snow starting to fall from the sky. “Are kids are going to think this is so cliche.” Calum voiced letting out a laughing, connecting your lips together.

No escape

(Rick Flag x Reader)

Request:  Hi! Can you please write a Rick Flag x Reader one shot where the reader is his second-in-command who falls for him but couldn’t express her feelings to him because she knows he’s in love with june moone/enchantress but rick has developed feelings for her gradually as time passes by until the time where the squad was able to save june but the reader gets fatally injured during that time which kills her instantly without knowing that rick loves her too and him regretting not being able to tell her

Warnings: character death

@pacific-penguin


“This is the deal: You disobey me, you die. You try to escape, you die. You irritate or vex me… and guess what? You die.” Rick tells them as you watch your newest team additions. They were quite…unusual to say the least. Working with them wasn’t your dream job but you had begged Amanda to let you help as well. Even though you knew Rick was in love with June, you still fell for him. If you couldn’t be with him, you at least wanted to be close to him and help.



“Ya have a boyfriend?”Digger puts his arm around your shoulder and gives you a grin while you walk through the city.

“W-what? No.”

“Interested in havin’…” He gets a smack on the head from behind, “What the hell?”

“Stop flirting with her and concentrate.” Rick growls in an annoyed tone, “We’re not here for your entertainment.”

“You’re pretty good at killin’ the fun.”

“I’m just warning you, she’s the one you should be scared of.” Rick tells him with a nod in your direction, “Annoy her and she’ll be the one who kills you.”

You give Digger a sweet smile and continue walking without him. He had exaggerated a bit, you wouldn’t kill anyone but that didn’t mean you wouldn’t hurt them if they got on your nerves too much, Rick was right about that.

Though that wasn’t the only reason Rick had intervened. Seeing someone flirt with you didn’t really stick well with him. You could take care of yourself, no doubt but you were still under his command and he felt…protective of you.



The closer you get to saving June the bigger that dull ache in your heart got. It was the right thing to do and yet you hadn’t felt more terrible in a long time.

“You alright?” Rick asks, showing up beside you.

“I’m just peachy.”

“Really?” He gives you a questioning look, not believing a word.

“Yes…sorry, I’m fine I promise.”

“If something is wrong tell me, okay?”

“Sure thing.” Like that would happen, you couldn’t possibly tell him that you weren’t that thrilled to rescue his girlfriend.



“Harley!” You hiss at her, “You don’t just walk out when the bad guys tell you to.”

“I thought we’re the bad guys?”

“Yes we are…but she is too, so stay were you are damn it.”

You had finally managed to get through to Enchantress and Harley was considering to just come out of hiding and walk straight in. Seriously, this girl was a handful. You wouldn’t let anyone die today, this mission was going to end good for everybody here.

Easier said than done, if it only had been her okay but there was the big guy as well. He took a swing at you, hitting you right in the stomach and sending you flying half across the room before Chato could step in.

You heard your bones crack when you landed and couldn’t move your body anymore. The others were too occupied to notice but you knew deep down, you wouldn’t make it out of here today. You watched them for a while until your vision finally went blurry. The last thing you heard were footsteps running in your direction.

“Y/N?” Rick says as he picks you up from the ground, “Hey, wake up…” He feels your pulse but there is nothing, just a limp, lifeless body he presses against his chest. Regret and guilt washing over him. He should have protected you no matter what, he should have told you how he felt and most importantly he should have told you to stay back. You wouldn’t be dead if he had done that.

“I love you…I’m so sorry.” He whispers before putting you down on the ground again.

Adore You

The apartment was dark, almost silent save for the faint sound of music drifting from the bedroom, as Wonwoo stepped inside. It was late, much later than the time he’d predicted for his arrival, and he wasn’t sure if you were awake or not. With that thought firmly in his mind, he slipped off his shoes at the door and shuffled down the hall as quickly and quietly as he could.

He wanted to say that he was surprised to see you still awake, wrapped in blankets and phone in hand, but he wasn’t. This was beginning to become a routine for the two of you. He’d stay out much later than anticipated, you’d wait up with a smile, and then the two of you would drift off together.

Wonwoo questioned why you waited up for him time and time again, especially when there was never a guarantee he’d actually be able to visit. But you’d only smiled at him and shrugged. “I don’t sleep much anyway,” you’d elaborated after the look he gave you, “but, even if I did, I’d still sacrifice it just to spend time with you.”

The music pounded through out the room as I sat and watched the boys train. It was all so intense, the dancing and the hard work. Hyunwoo watched me through the mirror as he danced, as if he danced for me. My cheeks were at a constant burn because of this, causing him to smile to himself. They finished the dance and he made his way over to me, a smile plastered onto him. 

“Hey, baby.” He whispered, sitting next to me. “Hey,” I said back, leaning against him. I watched the guys pant in exhaustion, Shownu chuckled at the sight of them. “I´m sorry this is taking so long.” He said and I laughed. “It´s okay, I´m used to it.” I said and he took my hand. “God, you´re perfect.” He said, pulling my face towards his, placing a quick kiss on my lips. 

“GET A ROOM!” Kihyun yelled, making us pull apart very quickly.

His teeth tugged at my bottom lip as his finger traced my neck. A slight moan escaping my lips, causing him to laugh. “Are you laughing at me?” I asked shoving him off of me slightly. “Maybe I am.” He said and cupped my face again. He leaned down and I pushed him completely off of me.

“No, now I don´t want to kiss you again.” I said and pouted my lips, leaning back against the wall. His hand came up and rested next to my head, causing me to swallow as he looked down on me. “You´re beautiful when you´re fake upset.” He said and his free thumb ran over my pouted lips. I let out a frustrated groan and pulled his lips against mine with his shirt. He let out a chuckle in response and pulled me closer.

Kihyun:

“Ugh this is so frustrating.” I groaned as I got another one of Kihyun´s questions wrong. “It´s really not that difficult, Y/N.”He said, eyeing me from my notes. “Not everyone is as smart as you.” I said, placing my head in my hands. “You just need some motivation.” He said, a smirk playing on his lips. “Well what do you have in mind?” I asked, unknowingly and looked up at him.

He crashed his lips against mine for a deep kiss, only to pull away when I really got into it. I let out a whimper and he laughed. “You´ll get more if you answer these questions correctly.”

My hand found Y/N´s as we walked through the fair. The scent of different foods distracting me as she tugged at my arm. “Minhyukie, oppa, look cotton candy!” She squealed happily and pointed over to the cotton candy vendor. I laughed and pulled her over to it. I gladly paid and handed her the cotton candy, placing a kiss on her forehead. 

We walked along, playjng random fair games and Y/N still gladly munched on her cotton candy. That was when I noticed a little bit of the pink fluff on her lip. “Jagi, you have a little on your lip. Let me get it.” I said and watched her blush. I quickly placed my lips on her sugar coated on ones and she let out a giggle. “You taste sweet.” 

Hyungwon:

You´re so warm.” He mumbled into his pillow, holding me hostage in his bed. “Hyungwon.” I groaned, trying to undo his arms around me. “Just a couple more minutes.” He pleaded, pouting those gorgeous lips of his. “Aish, you kill me.” I mumbled, laying back down next to him. His body engulfed mine as he held me close and I smiled to myself. 

Next thing I knew, his lips were kissing my entire face, leaving my lips as last. “You´re amazing, Jagi.” 

Jooheon:

Jooheon told me what time he´d be home, that was his first mistake. He loved scaring me when I least expected it, this time it was his turn. So there  I was, hidden in his closet, waiting for him to get home for what felt like hours. But when I heard footsteps, I cheered in myself. Waiting for them to get in front of the closet. 

I jumped out with a loud yell and I swear Jooheon had a heart attack. Stumbling backwards, he let out a high pitch scream sending me into a fit of giggles. He sat there clutching his chest looking at me with disbelief. “Why would you do that?” He asked as I tried catching my breath. “Pay back!” I said and wrapped my arms around him. “For all the times you scared the crap out of me.” I added and he looked down at me. “You shouldn´t have done that.” He said in a mocking tone. I just smiled deviously before quickly pecking his lips and running away. “Catch me if you can!” 

I.M/Changkyun:

The park was so much fun. There were dogs to pet, places to run around and my boyfriend to spend time with. 

My head rested on Changkyun´s stomach as we stared up at the clouds. The grass tickled my bare legs as a slight breeze blew around. “Do you think penguins have dreams?” Changkyun asked, disrupting the comfortable silence. I let out a laugh at his question and looked at him, leaning on my elbow. “I don´t know. Do you think giraffe´s do?” I asked back and watched him shrug. “I don´t you know. DO you think dog´s do?” He fired back, removing a hair from my face. “God, you´re such an innocent puppy.” I said and he frowned. 

“You just had to ruin the weird moment.” He said, shaking his head in fake disbelief. The smile on his face, telling me he appreciated it anyways. “That´s what I´m here for.” I said, smiling back. I giggled as he pulled my lips up to his. “But I´m your innocent puppy.” 

How you met Luke:

You decided that sketching penguins at the zoo was good way to vent your exam stress as well as finish this art project. They swam about in front of you as you tried to capture their forms. You’d finished a few serious sketches. They felt repetitive so you decided to make a few funny ones. You drew the penguin who was staring curiously at the public viewing area outside of its enclosure. You added a blonde curly bob haircut, red handbag and a pearl necklace to the rough sketch just for something new to do.

“You’re really good,” a voice told you.

You turned to see a new guy appear at your side.

“Thanks,” you replied. “It’s for an art project. We can only draw one subject matter so I thought penguins would be a good choice.”

He nodded approvingly and asked to see the rest of your sketches. You handed them over and finished the detailing on the handbag.

“They look amazing,” he said. “But I think it would look far better with me in there somewhere.”

He gave you a cheeky smirk. You swore you recognised him from somewhere. He kind of looked like a guy on your sister’s bedroom wall but hey, what were the chances?

“If you stay long enough, I can draw you a penguin.” You turned to a fresh sheet of paper. “But what do I get out of it?”

“Exposure, I guess.”

You frowned at him. Exposure? He saw your face and laughed.

“You have no idea who I am, do you?” he said.

You shook your head. “Not a clue.”

“I’m Luke,” he replied and sat down next to you.

You started to sketch the penguin for him.

“So what brings you to the zoo on this fine day?” you asked him as you started to draw the eyes.

“I like penguins,” he stated simply. “And the guys I’m here with are looking elsewhere. Why are you alone?”

You tilted your head. “My best friend, Violet, would usually come with me but she’s in Australia right now. She doesn’t come back for three months yet. I miss her.”

“We’re from Australia, actually,” Luke told you as if it wasn’t obvious by his accent. “We’re on tour here.”

“So are you guys a band or something?”

You drew his blonde hair on the penguin and added the lip ring to the lower part of the beak. You thought it was really taking shape.

“You could say we are.” He glanced over to the drawing but you glared at him for peeking. He held his hands up and mumbled. “Sorry.”

“So do you miss your family while you’re touring?”

“Yeah,” he said distantly. “I always love going home but I’m living my dream with the best guys I know.”

You smiled and looked at him out the corner of your eye. “So if penguins are your thing, where are the rest of your little gang?”

He laughed. “Well, Michael and Calum are trying to show Ashton that ducks really aren’t that scary. If you hear a scream followed by laughter, you know they’ve found the ducks at the petting farm.”

You shook your head as you added the final touches of colour.

“What are friends for, hm?” you joked.

“Ashton’s terrified of them,” he continued. “He says they’re evil or something. It’s a bit hard to tell what he’s saying while he’s screaming.”

“We’re all afraid of something, I guess.”

He nodded. “What are you afraid of most?”

You considered it for a moment. You weren’t afraid of much really.

“It’s not anything your friends can take me to see at a zoo,” you said sarcastically.

He laughed then nudged you; you noticed he waited until you weren’t drawing to do it though.

“No, really. What scares you more than anything?”

You turned to look at him. “I don’t know. Maybe just ending up alone? The idea of not living life to the max, I suppose. Not wasting chances, that kind of thing, living with no regrets. I’m afraid I’ll never know what love is or never know what it’s like to watch the sunset in some obscure country…” you trail off, scared you’re boring him or you’ve said too much.

“That’s understandable.”

“What’s your biggest fear?”

He looked at you with a small smile. “I never said I’d tell you mine.”

You scowled at him again. “That’s not fair, Luke! I’ve drawn you a penguin!”

“Can I look at it?” he asked in a soft voice. “Then I’ll tell you?”

You balanced it on your knee and supported it with your hand holding the binding at the top. You watched as he surveyed it. You thought you’d captured his hair just right. You’d added his Nirvana tank top and had drawn it with good enough accuracy. You watched for any kind of reaction. You wanted to impress this guy you hardly knew and you didn’t know why.

“That’s really amazing!” he said in astonishment.

“Thanks. Go on then, what’s your biggest fear?” you prompted him.

He sighed. “I still get really nervous before I go on stage. I’m afraid I’ll screw up and ruin the chances for the band.”

“Have you talked to your bandmates about this?” you asked, placing the sketchpad back into your lap.

He shook his head. “They know I get nervous but not to the extent I think I’ll blow it for us.”

Luke looked at you and changed the topic. “My penguin self is brilliant.”

“Genuinely?”

He frowned at you. “Why do you doubt yourself so much?”

“Why do you doubt yourself so much?” you fired back at him.

You both laughed.

“I better go see if Ashton is still part of the band and hasn’t quit because of the ducks,” Luke said.

You tore off your Luke penguin design and handed it to him.

“Can I ask something?” he asked.

You nodded as you started to pack away your own things.

“Can you give me your number?” he questioned. “If you don’t want to then that’s fine but I think we really get on.”

You smiled as you quickly picked up a pen to write your number under your name on the drawing.
