i like going to the beach at night

I grew up believing (not through my own fault) that love was only about grand romantic gestures, dozens of red roses, wearing your best clothes and going on dates in fancy restaurants and having romantic walks on the beach.
But now love is holding his hand, hearing his heartbeat and kissing his forehead. It’s feeling his body next to mine and his breathing against my own as he peacefully sleeps his way into the night. It’s wearing my worst clothes but still being called beautiful. It’s feeling the worst but still being treated like a queen. It’s laughing into his kisses because he did that thing again where he tries to interrupt me speaking. It’s sharing thoughts and emotions that for so long I thought I could never even feel or think. It’s finding the part I’ve been missing for twenty years.
Now, love is him. Love is me. Love is the both of us.
For me anyway.
Working with Water

Originally posted by water-aesthetics

Air rules me but so does water. I am split down the middle between the two. Water is chaotic and memorizing, and there is much you can do because it is one of the two elements that you can actually touch. Just like my other post, Working with Air, we will be exploring different ways that  you can connect more deeply with water. Enjoy dearies! 

Here is a list of different ways to work with water: 

  • We must drink water to survive, so when you are about to grab a glass of water (whether purified, tap, or bottled) before you pour it in your glass or before opening your bottle, enchant it by holding your hands around the glass/bottle (with your eyes closed or open) then say something along the lines as “I am one with the running waters of the Earth.” 
  • Go to the beach. Collect seashells, rocks, and sand. Dip yourself in the ocean. Feel the powerful waves crash against you. NOTE: Be careful of any animals that live within the ocean, be respectful. Don’t collect anything that can be harmful for your health or illegal. EX. feathers
  • Showers are powerful. If you are one who likes to take showers in the morning, imagine the water energizing you for the day ahead and see yourself conquering all that lies before you. If you are one who likes to take showers at night, imagine the water rinsing off to cleanse you from long day you had and see yourself washing away everything so you are fresh and new. No matter what time you take a shower, allow the water to freshen up your spirits. 
  • Baths are very calming and relaxing. When one cannot go to the beach, this is an excellent way to substitute. Fill the tub, surround yourself with blue/purple candles, seashells, and crystals that relate to water. Put in herbs or essential oils within your bath to connect you to the ocean waves of the deep, vast blue. Bonus, you can put on ocean sound music to set the mood. NOTE: Do your research, do not put in herbs or oils that are harmful to your health. Do not put crystals around the tub if they can be toxic or if they deteriorate in water. Your health is always most important.  
  • When it is raining, go outside and let the rain fall upon you. Close your eyes and let the water cleanse your being. Then if you would like, play. Splash in puddles, run around. Enjoy yourself. 
  • Make a sigil that means “I connect with the waters of the deep, beautiful sea.” or something along the lines. (Again, I am not a sigil maker but something I would like to include for others who are) Wear the sigil on you as you go to the beach or are working at your water altar.    
  • Make a special water altar, preferably facing west. Fill it with mermaid items, chalices, colors of dark blues and purples, seashells, etc.    
  • Research mermaids. Merpeople swim in the deep depths of the sea. They are beautiful, alluring, and mysterious. Unfortunately, I haven’t found any sources on how to communicate with them so here is a small list of ways I have personally used to connect with them.
    • Go to the beach, sit in front of the water and sing. Whether it is a mermaid song (like Jolly Sailor Bold) or your all time favorite song, just sing your heart out. If others are around you on the beach, sing quietly or have your headphones in. If you are alone, then sing as loud as you want. 
    • Collect seawater in a jar, then when you get home make an oil using essential oils and herbs that mermaids love. Then before you go to sleep, take a small inhale, then fall asleep. Let the mermaids come to you in your dreams. NOTE: Do your research, do not use oils that will harm your health. This is more for aroma, not placing on your skin. 
    • While you are at the beach, leave the mermaids small offerings that you feel they would enjoy. NOTE: Do not leave anything that is harmful to our environment, like jars filled with items. Be respectful to our Earth. 
    • If you cannot go to the beach, take a bath and surround yourself with mermaid items; like statues, mirrors, seashells, etc. Fill the bath with herbs and oils that relate to merpeople then while you are bathing, sing. Look in the mirror if you would like, allow yourself to become one with them. NOTE: I don’t really care that I repeat myself so often but for real, do you research. Do not use herbs or oils that will harm your health.
    • Be careful as you would communicating with any kind of spirit. Protect yourself and be respectful while you contact. 

Elements: 

Air
Earth
Fire

eren, mikasa, and armin would be the kind of people to go to the beach at two in the morning just to see the stars above the ocean before the sun rises

Secrets

This is a (decently long, sorry for the lack of writing these past few days) one-shot for the below prompt! It… didn’t turn out exactly like the ask, but I hope you like it anyway! I’ve been wanting to try writing trans!lance for a while because I absolutely love that hc, and I really enjoyed writing this, so let me know if you guys like it, because I could definitely see myself doing another fic with it.

Trans! Lance where an asshole alien keeps miss gendering Lance and being transphobic and he starts to get upset and then the team overhears this happening and are about to kick the aliens ass.

I tried to make it gen… but it ended up being very klance, especially at the end… so uh… I hope you like it anyway! Sorry this always happens when I try to write gen fics.


Only half the team knew.

Contrary to their belief, Lance was actually an expert secret keeper. With a large family like his, he had to know when to keep his mouth shut. So, despite the loud, obnoxious, open persona he displayed for the others, he could also be sneaky.

He’d the had practice of years sneaking out of the Garrison, or even his house when he was little to go see the beach at night with his siblings.

So, keeping a secret on an unbelievably large castle ship with only six other people on it was easy.

Or at least, it should’ve been.

Cassie’s Classics Challenge - “I can’t think about that right now. If I do, I’ll go crazy. I’ll think about that tomorrow.” Gone with the Wind @death2thevirgin

Summary: A family gathering at the Winchester household turns into an embarrassing mess for Dean and the reader. 


“Ha! Suck it, Winchester!” You boast obnoxiously, dancing around Sam in a circle. You just won the third air hockey game in a row and the feeling of victory never gets old.

“Just wait, Y/N. You’re awesome at air hockey but everyone knows you’re shitty at pool. And I can’t wait to kick your little ass!” Crouching down to your level, Sam condescendingly pats the top of your head with a shit eating grin.

“I can’t wait to see that, Sammy. Honestly. We all know you need some confidence…since that hot girl Erica shot you down. Must hurt the ego.” You giggle at his bitch face before bolting out of the game room. You may be ridiculous but you’re not crazy, Sam’s go to move when annoyed is chucking his drink at you.

Growing up across the street from the Winchester family has equipped you to easily deal with the two brothers in any scenario. It definitely comes in handy knowing which buttons to push.

The Time Capsule Challenge

I want to start a new tradition/challenge with “Animal Crossing: New Leaf”: a time capsule challenge. 

Mitzi asked me to go find her time capsule last night, and it occurred to me that I have been missing some great time capsule opportunities for myself. 

That’s what I encourage you all to do now, too! 

The rules are easy to follow, and you can do this however you’d like. There’s more than one way to recreate the memories. 

  1. Find an item that brings back memories or that you cherish a lot. 
  2. Wrap the gift in wrapping paper. 
  3. Go to a remote place in town - that also won’t be disrupted by possible villagers moving in (like the beach), or maybe even the island instead - and bury the wrapped gift. 
  4. Write your future self a letter with either a kind message, an inspirational quote, or really whatever you’d like. 
  5. Ask Pelly or Phyllis to set it for a specific date in the future. 
  6. Add that date to your calendar app, daily planner or wherever you keep your future events visible. 
  7. When it’s time to find your capsule and open your letter, post pictures about it! (I feel like using the tag “ac time capsule challenge” in your post would be awesome.)

There isn’t a “right” or “wrong” to the amount of time you give for a capsule, same as there isn’t a right or wrong way to even do this. I set mine for 2 months for this first time capsule. Perhaps you’d rather wait a year? It’s up to you! 

I hope you’ll join this challenge. It could be really fun.


With the reappearance of an old, best friend to my town, it’s brought back a lot of memories. So I’ve written myself a special message, with words of encouragement, and wrapped and buried an item that reminds me of the old days. 

~ I can’t wait to see it again in May. ~

How Disney Star Ross Lynch Plays A Gay Serial Killer in ‘My Friend Dahmer’

To play a young serial killer in “My Friend Dahmer,” ex-Disney Channel star Ross Lynch didn’t just walk in his character’s shoes. He took over the childhood home where Jeffrey Dahmer grew up and murdered his first victim. The movie shot for two weeks in that eerie location, near Akron, Ohio. “When I arrived, I felt comfortable,” says Lynch, 21. “This is going to sound weird — it was almost like I was home.”

“My Friend Dahmer” (based on a graphic novel by Derf Backderf) is a departure for Lynch, who starred in “Teen Beach Movie.” He wears shaggy hair and big glasses to channel a disturbed criminal who murdered 17 men and boys before his 1991 arrest. This story takes place before that, as Dahmer is graduating from high school in the late ’70s and struggling to fit in. But the role in the independent movie, which premieres at the Tribeca Film Festival on Friday night, started to seep into the actor’s psyche. “I kept losing sleep because — in my imagination — I kept seeing him in the corner of my room. That was really frightening.”

Lynch spoke to Variety about the film and if he’s trying to break away from his squeaky-clean Disney past.

What did you know about Jeffrey Dahmer’s story?
Believe it or not, I didn’t know who Jeffrey Dahmer was. I was born in ’95. And I think he died in ’94. The script was floating around. It was a Black List script. My agent emailed it to us. I thought, “This sounds really interesting.” I auditioned a few times.

There’s a tradition of Disney stars — from Anne Hathaway to Selena Gomez — going dark in independent films. Were you trying to show your range?
Yeah. When I was doing the majority of the Disney stuff, I was always thinking, “What’s next?,” because Disney is not forever. Although it was a great time and I learned extraordinary things, I knew there had to be something [else]. I didn’t want to go off the rails and started partying. When “Dahmer” came along, it was the perfect opportunity to really immerse myself in that role and hint at what I’d like to do in the future.

How did you research Dahmer’s life?
It’s so twisted and scary to read about the things he did. He was also surprisingly smart and charming. There are many interviews about him confessing about what was going through his head. It was cool to listen to how he spoke. He had somewhat of that Midwestern twang, almost like a Minnesota accent, but not really. I did a subtle version of it.

Did you see the Jeremy Renner movie?
I didn’t. That was a different time in Dahmer’s life. I’m doing a version of him slowly losing his humanity. I would kind of walk around the house and practice the movement.

What did you base his walk on?
I based it off Jeffrey Dahmer. There are a few interviews, it’s very short, but he walks right into the interview. He was a big guy and he was really burly. He was somewhat gentle in his younger years, because he was so shy. And he was so strong; he had awkward movements. I was really trying to get that. When we were filming, word got out, because we were in his hometown. People showed up on set and they were like, “There’s no way.” They were shocked at how accurate my walk was.

You actually look like a young Jeffrey Dahmer.
I know. It’s kind of scary.

It’s hard to read about what Dahmer did to his victims. Did the role get to you?
The most I felt the role had affected me was when I got home. I realized how much was lingering. I was anti-social for a second. Generally, I’m a happy person.

Did you grapple with the idea that by telling a serial killer’s life, you might be celebrating him?
I wanted to show the sympathetic version of what happened to him. I don’t think it’s a celebration.

Can your Disney fans see this film?
I think there’s definitely a wide range of my fan base that would enjoy it. I remember when the press release first came out, a lot of people on Twitter and social media were really excited. They like to see a departure, too. They like to see growth. But if you’re a 10-year-old fan or a little younger, maybe this isn’t the right film for you.

anonymous asked:

In honor of JK's birthday will you write him a cute little au of whatever you like?

i couldn’t think of anything but surfer!jungkook so uh,,,, here you go!

  • refers to his board as his “baby”,,,,,literally if jungkook is on the beach and he’s not in the water practicing he’s probably somewhere waxing the board and checking it meticulously
  • “why don’t you just date the damn thing” “jimin, don’t even bother asking him that. he already is”
  • jungkook: doesn’t deny this fact LOL
  • training is year long and jungkooks goes from board-shorts to wet-suits and let me tell you something: it’s a sight to behold and a lot of his fans are out there to take pics of him no matter what the weather
  • there was once a storm coming in and jungkook came out of the water, board under hand, shaking his wet hair 
  • the fans had yelled out that he looked cute,,,,and instead of getting all sheepish like he usually did,,,,he started signaling for them to go inside 
  • “i get it! im handsome or whatever, but go inside because the storm is going to make the tides rise!!!!”
  • moral is; jungkook is a sweet boy who worries about others yet would probably insist on going to practice even if he was sick,,,,,
  • cue jin chasing him down the beach, getting taehyung and jimin to capture his board just so jungkook will go inside and rest like he had a cold what does he think he’s doing getting in the goddamn water
  • also “sidewalk surfs” aka skateboards
  • will never admit it to anyone,,,,but when it’s night and the ocean is calm he likes to watch it because there’s something about it that make it feel like home,,,,,,,,,BUT you won’t catch him being sentimental nope no way,,,,,
  • and of course you know jungkook, how can you not, he’s in your parents surf shop every other day along with local life guard hoseok and the seafood restaurant owner seokjin
  • they’re always loud and cheerful,,,,especially after jungkook comes back from competitions. hoseok always swaggers up to you behind the counter and motions to the gold around jungkook’s neck or the trophy in his hand and he’s like “impressed ;)”
  • the two older man had notoriously been known for trying to hook jungkook up with someone,,,,,all of his friends all meddle in his dating life,,,,and for a while you’d been the target of such teasing too
  • seokjin just thinks you and jungkook share the same “vibe”,,,,,,,also you’re partially convinced he wants you and jungkook to go on a date to his restaurant LOL
  • but you don’t know,,,,jungkooks cute,,,,,,you’ll give him that
  • but you can never read him,,,,he’s shy no matter who he’s around,,,,,,so you don’t know if there’s genuine interest from his part
  • (although he never shows any signs of disagreeing with jin’s statements about your vibes or,,,,,letting hoseok brag for him,,,,,,,,,,)
  • but one afternoon as you’re putting up new merch in the windows, jungkook comes inside the shop
  • you’re surprised to see him alone and you’re like what’s up, where are the other guys and jungkook nervously looks around
  • “they’re not here? you haven’t seen them?”
  • you frown,,,,because something seems wrong in his voice,,,,and you’re like no,,,,why?? jungkook rubs his temples and sighs “my board,,,,i went to get some water from the fountain and left my board on my spot in the beach,,,,i thought jin or hoseok or maybe even jimin took it as a joke but,,,,i can’t find anyone or my board,,,,”
  • your frown grows and you tell jungkook to wait a second,,,,you grab the keys to the shop and turn over the ‘open’ sign, leading him outside so you can lock the door
  • “ill help you look for it, maybe some of the kids are playing a prank on you or something. hang loose, we’ll find your board.”
  • jungkook gladly accepts your help, you guys search the beach up and down, the cabanas, the snack shacks, everywhere
  • “have you checked jin’s restaurant?” 
  • jungkook shakes his head and you two set off to ‘seokjin’s surf’n’turf’ which looks surprisingly closed even though it’s a weekday,,,
  • you go around the back to see the door to the kitchen is open and jungkook goes in first as you follow behind
  • calling out jin’s name, jungkook awkwardly shuffles through the dark kitchen, you stay close behind when suddenly the lights turn on and you jump
  • clinging to jungkook’s broad back you hear someone yell ‘surprise! happy birthday jungkook!’
  • peeking out from behind you see jungkook’s friends standing in the doorway to the restaurant. jin has a big cake covered in fondant surfboards and a shark drawn on it in icing, hoseok is holding balloons, and thankfully taehyung and jimin have jungkook’s surfboard safe and sound
  • you can feel jungkook’s shoulders relax as he goes “you guys didn’t have to steal my board though,,,,,,,,”
  • you feel slightly out of place,,,,,,but jin notices you and grins
  • “looks like jungkook brought his significant other to the party!”
  • jungkook’s cheeks turn a fiery red and you blink because,,,,,what,,,,is that supposed to be you?????
  • hoseok hollers that he KNEW it would happen at some point
  • and you’re like wha- what are they,,,
  • but then you realize, your hand is still clinging to the back of jungkook’s shirt and you’re relatively close to him and jungkook turns as you let go and seems to look like he wants to say something
  • but you hear someone go ‘give him a kiss, it’s his birthday!’
  • everyone else chimes in in agreement and you’re like,, ,,,,,,, and jungkook isn’t moving,,,,,,just staring back at you with wide eyes
  • without anything but a hail mary thought you lean in and press your lips to his cheek, leaning back you look around in embarrassment and you hear wolf whistles and claps
  • jungkook,,,,still frozen,,,,,finds the strength to only say one thing: “w,,,wow”
  • you blubber out that you’re sorry,,,,you didn’t-
  • but jungkook shakes his head and says that,,,,,he’s happy,,,,,,,the best gift he could have gotten
  • you two shyly smile,,,,,standing there like teenagers in love until jin goes “im tired of holding this cake let’s all go eat it and you two can do the mushy stuff later”
  • you and jungkook blush,,,but as everyone piles into the restaurant to dig into the cake, jungkook offers you his hand and you take it,,,,,
  • it feels right,,,,and cute,,,,,,,,
  • but you also 100% shove cake in his face like you just confessed to each other but you’re like i have to do this to you and jungkook is like ,,,,,,,,, i knew i was right when i decided to like you LOL

Side to Side - Ariana Grande || Dangerous Woman Masterlist


Friday nights were the ones I looked most forward too since I always knew he’d be there, even if it wasn’t with me. Thank god I was friends with Ashton, because without him, I wouldn’t have had the pleasure of getting to know Luke.

Every Friday, there was a huge meet-up at the beach where anyone and everyone from schools across the town could come to Blue Lagoon Beach to party. As expected, there was alcohol, loud music, loads of make out sessions and even sometimes, they’d bring weed. It was a cliché party scene that absolutely everyone adorned in our town because it was the best way for us to all be together and be able to somehow relax and get our mind of all our worries.




He’d been standing there for a good 20 minutes talking to his friends, which included: Ashton, Calum and Michael. I was stood with my friends - not too far from him - trying to listen to his conversation, but my eyes were glued to him. His presence was too distracting for me to listen.

His muscular arms hugged tight by his black t-shirt, his dark skinny jeans clinging to his legs as his black boots loosely hang around his ankles. He was a sight for sore eyes. His piercing blue eyes locked with mine as he brushed his fingers through his blonde curls - oh how I wish I could run my fingers through his hair just one more-

“Oh my god, you’re doing it again!” Betty complains, bringing me back out my fantasy. “It literally looks like you’re having fantasies about having sex-” “I didn’t even start them yet.” I playfully interrupt, causing her to roll her eyes at my response. “You already slept with him like twice, what more is there to fantasise?” Logan asks. “Look at him, he’s absolutely gorgeous!” I exclaim, my body getting worked up at the sight of him. “Trust me, you’ll always want more with Luke.”

sunrise over florida

genre: fluff // warnings: language

i heard @nihilist-toothpaste wanted ridiculously soppy dan-deciding-to-stay-in-florida. this happened. hi.

Sunrise comes soft and Easter-egg yellow, seeping into the sky like honey, the salty-fresh wind off the waves cutting through the warmer night air. Phil’s hand is cold and comforting in Dan’s – the beach is empty – they’re walking much closer than they usually do and Dan can’t bring himself to care very much.

“I’m going to miss you,” Dan says, quiet. Phil smiles at him sideways, crooked and bittersweet. His sunglasses cover his eyes, but Dan knows the expression in them all the same.

anonymous asked:

I've been swimming a lot this week & reading your Summer of Mutual Pining posts. I think Victor would be the type to look more human in the pool: his perfect hair wilts, skin care routine washed off, etc. But Yuuri in the pool is akin to his Eros persona: no glasses, hair slicked back. I think this works well for both of them.

OH NO POOR VICTOR.

The night before they go to the beach Victor starts rethinking this plan. His nose starts to run in saltwater. His eyes get really red. And bringing goggles would officially be Too Far.

Chris is like. Let me let you in on a secret. NO ONE actually looks good coming out of the ocean.

Cue Yuuri Katsuki, dragging his hair back as he surfaces, water dripping down his chest like a goddamn photoshoot. He smiles and all Victor hears is Careless Whisper blasting at top volume. The only report Chris gets that day is an all-caps text reading INCORRECT.

Yuuri lends Victor his spare goggles. Victor is suffering.

Plus One

In which Harry gets the help of a little girl to go on a date with (Y/N)


“Will you do the honors of being my maid of honor, (Y/N)?”, your friend asked beaming at you. She’s been your bestest friend ever since you were young; you knew you had to accept her request even though weddings weren’t your scene. But for (Y/F/N) you’ll do anything.

One day, while you two were setting up the preparations for the wedding (Y/F/N) drops the bomb about Harry being the best man. Her and her fiance have been trying to set the two of you up for months but scheduling a date was always tough. Although, whenever Harry and you would see each other; the two of you would always have some sort of physical attraction to one another. All of your friends were waiting for the day the two of you hooked up.

 The big day had finally arrived; you were on a beautiful beach in Honolulu, Hawaii walking down the aisle with the honorary best man. In all honesty, Harry and you had stole the whole show. Finally, (Y/F/N) was walking down the aisle wearing a beautiful mermaid gown.  

The ceremony began and the couple were starting to recite their vows; a lot of the braid maids were crying and a sight that had surprised you was seeing Harry tearing up behind the groom.

 During the reception, after all the speeches and some more tears. The dancing begun; you being the one that doesn’t do much dancing had decided to go to the bar and just watch everyone enjoy themselves. There is two people that you see on the dance floor that just warms your heart; Harry and a little girl no older than the age of 4. You’ve always heard rumors from (Y/F/N) about Harry being amazing with kids; which is probably the most attractive thing ever in your opinion.

 Throughout the whole night, you watch Harry playing with this little girl who you find out was a flower girl named Lucy. They are playing tag and you could probably laugh at the sight of a grown man running away from a giggly little girl. When it was his turn; he would always boop her little nose.

 Lucy’s mom stands beside you watching them with you; “I was a little reluctant about bringing her because I thought my baby was going to be alone with all these adults”, she says. “Turns out she’s having more fun than I expected her to have,” you guys both laugh at this.

 Little Lucy actually invites you to play with them, “would you like to play with Harry and me please? He says you’re very pretty.” She mumbles in a little baby voice. You and Harry both blush at this; Harry embarrassed because he’s been exposed by a 4 year old.

“Lucy, you were just supposed to ask if she wanted to play with us!”, He said laughing the embarrassment off.

“So what do you say (Y/N)? Do you want to play a game with us?”, he asks holding his hand out. “I would love too”, you say laughing at him and taking his hand into yours.

 The three of you guys continue to play until Lucy has to go to sleep. The sweet girl thanks the two of you for playing with her. Lucy manages to whisper in your ear. “please be nice to Harry, he likes you this much.” She stretches out her arms as wide as they can go. You guys bid your farewell to the little girl.

 Harry insist on walking you back to your room but you aren’t ready to go back because you enjoy his company; you won’t tell him that though. He suggests the two of you go sit by the beach and watch the waves.

That night you found out so much about Harry; like how he love rom coms, was a hopeless romantic, and how weddings were the favorite thing. He even let you know that the bouquet toss was his favorite.

“I would’ve participated on it tonight but I wouldn’t want to embarrass myself infront of a pretty girl,” he says winking at you. You swear your face became hot from blushing so hard.

Throughout the whole night Harry was a complete gentleman to you; always making sure you were warm. The whole night was basically Harry getting to know you; unlike all the rest of the guys that would just talk about themselves.

“As much as I would love to stay and chat with you for hours, I really think it’s time for us to head back.” He says a little disappointed. “I’ll walk you back, (Y/N)”

 There’s a comfortable silence the whole walk back to the room. Maybe because you guys were a little disappointed you two had to leave each other.

 “Well this is my room, thank you so much for the night Harry,” You smile at him.

You were about to head into your room until Harry stopped you.

“(Y/N), would you like to do something with me? I mean it’s totally fine if you don’t, I just thought it might be fun.” He asks nervously rubbing the back of his head.

“Sure, Harry. Pick me up at 12?” Harry looks up at you with a pure joy.

“Of course, Love! See you then,” He replied.

You guys say your goodbyes and you had done something bold; kissing his cheek and winking at him.

 Now, who would’ve thought a 4 year old was going to be the one that helps you get the date with Harry?


A/N: Hope you all enjoyed this piece !! kinda iffy about this one but here it is :) Thank you for reading this; and dont be afraid to send in request!!!  

Valentine’s Day with Sebastian Stan would include...

Originally posted by little--batman

N/A: Special headcanons to celebrate Valentine’s Day - I don’t write for celebrities usually, so please, don’t insist. Happy Valentine’s Day, I love you guys <3

  • Sebastian wakes you up early in the morning, by jumping on the bed and almost screaming “wake up, babe, it’s Valentine’s day!”
  • He gives you kisses all over your face
  • And he tickles you, of course
  • “Okay okay, I’m awake!”
  • With another kiss on your cheek, you get up and go to the bathroom
  • Once you’re done with your business, you go to the kitchen only to find Sebastian making coffee, with a lot of breakfast food placed on the table behind him
  • “Sit down, babe. I swear I didn’t burn the pancakes this time”
  • He serves two cups of coffee and you help him to put it on the table
  • And yeah, you sit down - but on his lap
  • “Can’t believe you did this just because it’s Valentine’s Day”
  • He laughs and starts to eat with you
  • Pancakes, fruits, some toasts, jelly, coffee and milk
  • Not so surprisingly, all of the food was delicious
  • Especially the pancakes lol
  • Sebastian caress your skin while eating
  • Like, just gently running his fingers on your waist and arm, kissing your shoulder and collarbone, etc
  • It’s all just so intimate and peaceful
  • And once you can’t eat anymore, Sebastian hugs you, putting his face on your neck and whispering a “can we go now?”
  • “What? Where are we going?”
  • “To the beach!”
  • You try to argue to understand if he was being serious about that, you really do
  • But since you can never argue with that Romanian and stubborn guy about something he knows that will be fun, you just stay speechless
  • Sebastian giggles, kissing your lips and asking you to get up so he can clean the kitchen
  • Which he does in just a few minutes
  • Then, he pulls you to the bedroom, talking nonstop about how cool it will be go to the beach
  • “Seb, are we really doing this?”
  • “Yes! We can drive to the beach and then drive back home at night. It will be like a small road trip, babe”
  • When you finally agree, Sebastian starts to pack some things - like clothes, towels, etc
  • At the car, you put some pop music just to see him singing along really loud, dancing like a dork (I definitely have a playlist of songs he would listen to during road trips, let me know if you want me to share it with you guys)
  • The whole way is just a mix of you laughing at Seb and recording him singing
  • Until, a little less than 2 hours after, you finally get to the beach
  • Sebastian looks like a kid, all excited about being there
  • The best part is that there’s not so much people around
  • Which allows you and Seb to just play like little kids on the sand, running after each other, swimming on the sea
  • There is actually a moment when he throws you over his shoulder and runs with you to the sea
  • You two spend the whole day there, playing, laughing, taking romantic walks, enjoying the view and each other’s company
  • It feels so good to just be there, holding your boyfriend’s hand and spending some time with him
  • But then the sun starts to set, and it’s time to go home
  • And of course that the way back home it’s just as fun as the way to the beach
  • Sebastian keeps telling you jokes and stories, until the moment he realizes you’re falling asleep
  • He smiles to himself, closing the car windows to keep you warm and holding your hand
  • Once he gets to his apartment, he gently wakes you up with some kisses
  • “I’m sorry, I would carry you to bed but right now we’re at the parking lot”
  • You laugh, nodding and getting off the car
  • At the elevator, Sebastian hugs you, letting you rest your head on his shoulder
  • And you’re so tired of a whole day of fun that he doesn’t even care when you throw yourself at his couch, at the moment you enter his apartment
  • And you’re not so sure of how long you slept, but next thing you know you’re waking up at a wonderful smell coming from the kitchen
  • “Seb?”, you call him, getting up from the couch
  • “Hello, sleeping beauty. I was just about to wake you up, dinner is ready. Why don’t you take a shower so we can eat?”
  • He smiles, coming closer to you and kissing your forehead
  • “God, I can’t believe you let me sleep at Valentine’s Day, Seb!”
  • You take a brief shower, washing away all the dirty from the beach, and changing into something comfy (and easier to take it off lol)
  • When you get back to the kitchen, another surprise
  • The whole place is decorated with candles, your favorite song (the one you say that is the theme song of your relationship with Seb) is playing, and your boyfriend is waiting for you, drinking a glass of wine
  • “How long did I stayed in the shower?”
  • He laughs, sitting down and mentioning for you to do the same
  • Even with just a shirt and sweatpants on, Sebastian was still the most beautiful and elegant man on the city, you were sure about that
  • You sit down too, smiling when you realize that he cooked your favorite dish
  • Through the dinner, you and Seb talks about everything - work, family, life, future, etc
  • He even says something about getting married someday
  • Soft music keeps playing on the background
  • “Fuck, I forgot about dessert”, he mumbles suddenly
  • “It’s okay, we have wine”
  • And after eating and drinking a bottle of wine, Sebastian leaves you for a moment
  • When he comes back, he puts a small velvet box in front of you
  • “What is this?”
  • “A present - or something like a question, actually”
  • You slowly open the box, revealing a key
  • “Okay, Stan, what is this?”
  • “I want you to move in with me”, he simply says. “This is the key of a beautiful and cozy apartment I found, not so far from this block. It’s perfect for us - 10 minutes from your work, more private than here, and bigger too. It’s… it’s the perfect way for us to start a life together”
  • Sebastian also tells you that it’s all settled - the only thing he needs to buy the apartment is your answer
  • And of course your answer is yes
  • You cry while hugging him, listening to his soft voice whispering to you how much he loves you and how you make him happy
  • The night ends with you and Sebastian at his bed, passionately making love to each other
  • And then, he falls asleep with your naked body pressed against his own, a tiny smile on his lips

Bestfriend Trouble (2/2) | Zach Dempsey x Reader

Genre: Romance, Fluff
POV: Reader’s/First Person

A/N: Hi everyone! Here’s part 2 of Bestfriend Trouble! A lot of things are going to happen for this one. I hope you guys like this! Warning: This might be too cheesy for other people, especially near the end. HAHAHA. Enjoy!

Request: Can u do a imagine where Zach takes you to the dance and y'all do cute things like slow dance and all that.. and u can end it how u like it.

—–

“Will you go with me, as my date, to the winter formal?” Zach finally asks after 10 minutes of clearing his throat, coughing and stalling. I laugh at him in response.

“Yeah, duh. Who else will I go with? You’re obliged to ask me since I’m your best friend.” I answer and he stares at me for a while with a confused look on his face.

“Well with that kind of reasoning, I should be asking Justin to the dance too since he’s also my bestfriend.” he mumbles under his breath but loud enough for me to hear while rolling his eyes.

“Yeah, Zach? I don’t get why you’re acting so odd for the past couple of days.” I reply as I lean back on my chair and cross my arms in front of my chest. He turns to face me and lets out a deep sigh.

“Look, I’m not asking you to the dance because I have to or because it’s my responsibility as your best friend.” he begins, adding finger quotations as he says the words “best friend”.

“I’m asking you to the dance because I genuinely want to go with you, Y/N. No one else, just you. Only you.” he continues and I give him a small smile.

“Alright, fine, okay, I’ll go to the dance with you. It’s not like I had a choice anyway.” I answer and he groans in frustration.

“Please don’t say yes because you don’t have a choice. Please don’t say yes if you feel like you’re just doing me a favor.” he says as he rubs the sides of his temples. I raise an eyebrow at him and shake my head before speaking.

“Okay, okay. I’m sorry, yes, I will go to the winter formal with you Mr. Zachary Dempsey. It will be my absolute pleasure to be your date.” I finally say and he lifts up his head to face me. There was a certain sparkle in his eyes, like he was ecstatic that I agreed to go with him to the dance.

The rest of Zach and I’s time in Monet’s was nothing out of the ordinary. After the whole conversation about the dance, we just got on with typical best friend stuff. He got us more food - celebratory pastries as Zach liked to call them - and he dropped me home after that.

There were only a few days left until the winter formal and I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t excited for it. If I’m being completely honest, I was excited to go to the dance and I was hoping - even to the point of praying - for Zach to ask me to be his date. However, I didn’t want to let anyone know just in case everything goes to hell. I didn’t want to expect anything because expectations lead you to disappointments. Fortunately, it looks like the stars have aligned and the Gods have listened to my prayers because so far, everything’s going great.

The night of the winter formal

Getting ready for a school dance is the most tedious task there is. You need the perfect dress and the right hairstyle to go with that dress. Not to mention your shoes also need to be flawless.
