i posted this before but it disappeared somehow

tur-twig  asked:

how did you two meet?

Bird: Oh, it’s a bit of a long story… and not exactly a happy one, I’m afraid. But if you have the time..

When I was younger… ah, this must have been almost six years ago, at least! I.. had a mindset that no one could be trusted. That everyone was out to hurt me, especially.. other Latios. I never had much of a family, you see.. 

Bird: At least, I pretended I did.. I made myself prefer it to some degree. No one could hurt me if I had no one. 

So I decided to settle down here in Clearview Forest, where I’ve lived since. There’s a lake nearby, and it generally gets too cold for anyone but feral pokes around here. It’s a quiet life, but requires border maintenance in case the ferals get too comfy..

Bird: Now, living as I did, bodies were not an uncommon occurrence.. but it was usually old guys. This one was young.. not far from my age. And he must’ve been there for a very long time, but he looked almost.. alive, beside his eyes.

Bird: He looked awful.. but I got this sort of feeling from him. That he wasn’t really dead.. so, I went with my gut. I had always been good with machines, anyhow.

Bird: It would be some time before I realized who Jet really was.. what he was. He didn’t remember much at first, and still doesn’t remember everything. I kept him in the dark on purpose, so he wouldn’t leave.. he found out, eventually. 

He was devastated.. he was hurt, rightfully so. But.. he forgave me, somehow. Not before disappearing for a good month or so, though! Haha..

Bird: We had been something of lovers before he found out, but after things had settled, it was even better. No more secrets. Jet knows as much, if not more than I do about himself now, aha!

This ended up being quite the tale… I hope you don’t mind! There’s still so much more, too.. Shame.

Pity (Akuatsu Drabble)

SUMMARY: akuatsu/shin soukoku. It’s a cold, rainy day and for once Akutagawa considers giving up Rashomon to keep Atsushi warm.
A/N: long time no see!! sorry for promising more drabbles and then suddenly disappearing off the face of the earth… and considering how short these are, they are hardly worth the wait. nonetheless, i’m back!! and this is the second drabble request from ame that i promised before. i… wasn’t exactly sure how to go about this one, so it might not be what you were really looking for. but i hope you enjoy it somehow!
hopefully the wait between this one and the next won’t be half as long, but we’ll see. i still want to finish that kunichuu multi-chapter fic at some point…
(posted this to ao3 last night and i forgot to post it here. whoops.)

“It’s cold…” Atsushi whines, hugging Rashomon around himself.

September spread! I tried to post this before, but I think it disappeared into the void somehow.
There’s been a lot of stress in my life lately around transitioning, as my mom supports top surgery and hormones, and my dad doesn’t. But otherwise, I think things are good? It’s hard to know how I’m feeling because a bunch of shit happened today, but I think everything is alright.

anonymous asked:

Gigi posted another picture from zayn's shoot with the same superficial caption as the one from yesterday "HOT" thats probably all she sees him as and that somehow makes me dislike her even more I didn't think that would be possible

And she did it on her Insta story, so that’ll disappear soon. I’ve mentioned this before, but there’s a grand total of ZERO posts on her IG about Zayn’s projects. No SGT, Ocean’s Eight cameo, his VMA nomination, acoustic IDWLF, NADA!

Anything with Zayn on there has her involved somehow, at the very least just pushing fake Zigi bullshit. But just look at his IG. I counted about 20 posts where she features one way or another, some are just for her projects. I didn’t even count Versus even though she and her equally thirsty sister took part in that.

It’s quite clear who Zigi is mainly serving and I’m beyond sick of it. Free him already.

[Day 2], [Day 3], [Day 4], [Day 5], [Day 6], [Day 7], [Day 8], [Day 9]


Jungkook sighed for the thousandth time that night, looking up at his reflection in the mirror and solemnly staring into the object, hoping the nerves that were eating him alive the week before and even more so tonight would fade away or somehow mysteriously disappear but it wasn’t that easy and they remained, eating away his confidence chunk by chunk.

You can do this, you can do this, you can do this…” He whispered to himself three times, assuring himself that he could take charge of the situation he was currently stuck in and come out victorious, winning the battle with himself and basking in the glory of what came out of this.

He quickly got his handy lip balm, applying it to his lips quickly but with precision before he corrected his hair, placing the hairs that stood up or were out of place back where he wanted them to be just for that night. After that, he took his breath spray, spraying it but the spray accidentally being sprayed towards the back of his throat, causing him to choke on the bitter taste before he tried to cough out the taste. 

After the bitter ordeal, he checked his appearance once again, satisfied with the way he looked, smiling at himself in the mirror before he left the bathroom, sending a shy but sweet smile at the elderly women who had been patiently waiting outside to use the bathroom. As Jungkook walked away, hoping the elderly women didn’t hear him choking on the breath spray, he happened to glance up from the wooden floor beneath his feet and his eyes immediately landed on you, his pace slowing down before he stood a few feet away from you, staring at you with the purest and most beautiful form of fondness ever known.

Even with the house filled with people, enjoying the party currently held at your household, cliché pop and Christmas tunes blasting from every corner of the house, loud people cheering for the festive season, celebrating and dancing around and just being down-right crazy like there was no tomorrow, like this was there only moment to be free without any rules or regulations, Jungkook still found silence, his world turning black, everything and everyone faded away and you only left, still acting like you did before the real world faded away - he still found himself breathless, he still found himself staring at you with fascination and he still found you to be the most beautiful creation ever made.

In summary, Jungkook liked you. Liked you a lot. More than he possibly could like any other human being in the entire world. It all started he was sitting in the quiet and empty study hall at your school, earphones in as he wrote lyrics to a song he’d been working on at the time. That’s when you walked in. Clueless, you had found yourself wondering into the room and into his world, politely asking him where the dance studio at your school was. He removed his earphones when he felt a tap on his shoulder, looking up from his lyric sheet and having his breath being taken away and his pupils dilate. For a moment, he didn’t know what to do except for stare at the perfection in front of him before he realized the staring must have been creeping before he stopped and listened to you speak.

“I’m really sorry to bother you, but I’m new here and I heard there was a dance audition here and I was wondering if you knew where it is,” You inquired politely, sending him a half smile that mostly consisted of embrassment as you said, “Sorry once again.”

He couldn’t speak right after you had spoken, his voice and breath taken away by your beauty. You watched his effort to speak to you with big eyes that he adored from the second he saw them, chuckling at bit as he sent you an embarrassed smile and laughed lightly at himself. 

“No need to apologize,” Jungkook found himself first saying to you, noticing how much you had already apologized to him even though you had just met and that you didn’t even do anything wrong. “Umm, well, I’m actually suppose to be headed there too, so we can walk there together if you want.”

“I’d love to,” You smiled brightly, Jungkook thinking how you resembled a beautiful angel from above when you smiled as he heard your angelic voice say, “Thank you so much.”

“No problem.”

All-in-all, you two walked to the dance studio that was on the other side of the small building of the three buildings on the big school campus, first not talking at all which both of you found extremely awkward and Jungkook couldn’t stand it but you couldn’t settle for that and started asking Jungkook questions which sparked a conversation between the two of you. That day he learned a lot about you, as well as the fact that you could dance, dance like something he’d never seen before, something so unique and so flawless that he couldn’t believe his eyes when he watched you dance. From that day onwards, he liked you and you became very good friends after that day, his feelings growing more and more as the days went on as he discovered the different sides of you that he wouldn’t alter or change for that would mess with perfection at its finest. 

With these strong feelings came bumps in the road, you only referring to Jungkook as your best friend and never something more which always upset him every time you introduced him to different and new faces, but it was useless to get upset about when he could easily just tell you how he felt but he didn’t, he was too scared. Too scared of that damned thing that always stopped anyone for doing anything like this: rejection. 

Rejection is one of the many things we all fear in life, especially when it comes to someone that we really care for and only want to be ours, so this is why Jungkook didn’t confess to you. He was too afraid of the embarrassing but mostly painful emotion of rejection and plus, he valued your close friendship too much to mess it up with his more than friendly feelings about you.

Jungkook train of thought was immediately brought to a halt when he was pushed over, almost falling flat to the ground and embarrassing himself in front of everyone at the party, including you. Jungkook steadied himself, regaining his balance before he looked to see who had almost knocked him over, seeing none other than his best friend, Taehyung who was also known as V, laughing at him.

“Oh, you should have seen your face when I pushed you over,” Taehyung laughed, his hand covering the broad smile that was spread across his face as he laughed at the memory of his friend almost falling over just a few seconds ago.

“You were like, shit!” Taehyung explained humorously, reenacting the amusing moment of his friend almost fell over, overly exaggerating the small stumble to which earned him a punch in the arm from Jungkook. 

“Not funny.” Jungkook deadpanned in a grumpy mood, not entirely in the mood for Taehyung’s silly antics now when he was thinking about whether it was the right thing to do when it came to confessing his feelings to you.

Geez, someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed today,” Taehyung insisted with a tiny amount attitude he showed only when the times was right, swinging his arm over his friend’s shoulder and leading him away from you, causing him to mentally curse at Taehyung from looking at you, “What’s up?”

“It’s just that-” Jungkook started to explain truthfully but cut himself off when a girl walking by had noticed Taehyung and not Jungkook and decided to greet the boy.

Hi Taehyung.” She greeted sweetly with an pretty eyesmile, a blush spread across her pale cheeks when her eyes laid on Taehyung.

“Hi.” He greeted back kindly with a closed mouth smile, acknowledging the girl who seemed quite taken aback from the greeting, flushing a deep color of red in her cheeks before she shyly giggled and she walked onwards, Jungkook glancing back to see the girl covering her mouth and trying to calm herself down from what just happened.

The two boys wondered into the kitchen, Taehyung acting totally drunk and falling into the nearest stool near the counter, the blue hippie style glasses on his face falling from their place on the bride of his nose, all before the boy chuckled and pushed them back upwards.

“That girl likes you, you know.” Jungkook notified his drunk friend, standing over the kitchen counter that had multiple snacks and beverages laid out, placing his arms on the surface and holding his hands as he looked at his friend across him.

“Why do you say that?” Taehyung asked with his eyebrows furrowed, stomping his foot against the ground when he asked Jungkook this question. 

“She was blushing like no person I have ever seen and was basically having a panic attack after you greeted her, she likes you.” Jungkook explained, amused by his friend’s drunk state but also amused by the stupid question his friend asked as he heard the music that once pounded against his eardrums fade.

“You do the same thing around you know who, you know that right?” Taehyung mentioned, taking his glasses off with one hand before his eyes widened in surprise as he yelled, “Oh, pudding!”

Shocked, Jungkook just gazed at his friend with an offended look, watching as he quickly took the bowl of chocolate pudding and dropped three fingers into it, licking it off his fingers slowly before Jungkook heard his friend moan at the taste. 

Jungkook pulled a disgusted face, saying with a cringe, “Dude, do this when you’re alone please. I’m not in the mood to know what my friend’s moans sound like.”

Taehyung’s head shot up, his mouth covered with pudding since he decided to now lick the bowl clean of any pudding either like a small child or a small puppy, either way it was cute. With widened eyes, he placed the almost empty bowl of pudding down onto the counter and looked at Jungkook as he said, “You will be, once I seduce you with my killer looks.”

What looks?” Jungkook quickly shot back at Taehyung, smiling and chuckling towards what he said as he watched Taehyung slightly frown before he shook his head towards his friend’s comment.

Rude,” Taehyung explained with a fake hurt expression before he carried on talking, dipping his chocolate covered fingers into the pudding once again, “Anyways, when are you two gonna get together? I’m tired of you being such a third-wheel when you come over to my house.”

“I wouldn’t be such a third-wheel if it wasn’t for your girlfriend always being there!” Jungkook argued loudly, “What’s up with that though? Why is she always there? Does she live there? This is so sad. She’s spending so much time over there that I actually thinks she lives there.“ 

"We just enjoy each other’s company, something you don’t have because you’re single as fuck,” Taehyung explained, sitting back in his chair and glancing towards the pathway to the kitchen to see one of their other friends, Namjoon, walking past, “Hey Namjoon, please tell Jungkook-”

Jungkook, you got no jams.” Namjoon quickly said with so much amount of sass in his sentence as he was fast approaching the two who sat at the kitchen counter. 

I didn’t mean that!” Taehyung yelled at him with fake anger, slapping he guy on the arm as he quickly walked past them who was smart enough to know Taehyung would do this and quickly hit him back, harder than Taehyung hit him, causing Taehyung to yelp in pain.

Namjoon walked away from the scene in the kitchen quickly, making Jungkook wonder what was so important that was making the boy ran throughout the house like a madman since the time he set foot inside the house for the party. Jungkook shook his head, turning his attention back to Taehyung who just finished all the pudding, licking his fingers with the hum of satisfaction.

“I think you should do it, you know. Just go ahead and confess shortly about how you like her and then, BAM! Kiss her and walk away like a boss.” Taehyung encouraged Jungkook to confess, Jungkook watching his friend as he stumbled to the kitchen sink and washed his hands, stumbling back and lazily plotting back down on the stool he originally sat on.

“It’s easy for you to say when you’re not the one with an entire friendship hanging in the balance.” Jungkook expressed, standing up straight once again and stretching as he stood up.

“Look Jungkook,” Taehyung commanded, Jungkook immediately looking in his friend’s direction when he heard how serious he sounded when he said this, “We all know that you guys deserve each other and love each other but are just too chicken to admit to one another because you’re scared of I don’t know what because rejection isn’t going to happen. Plus, it’s Christmas, it gives you an excuse to kiss her because of the mistletoe.”

Jungkook playfully rolled his eyes at his friend, knowing that he was friend could be right about what he said but Jungkook, no matter how confident he was, couldn’t find enough confidence in himself to admit his feelings to you. He valued you so much that he didn’t want you to ever leave him, especially over you being creeped out by the fact he had feelings for you so he didn’t want to confess and scare you away. But on the other hand, there could be the slight possibility that you liked him back and confessing would finally bring you two together romantically and Jungkook liked the idea of that, too much actually and wanted that to be a reality. So much so that despite the doubts he had earlier before and still had some of now, he wanted to tell you how he felt because he deserved to at least know whether you felt the same or not.  

Jungkook stopped thinking when he felt himself being dragged by Taehyung to who knows where inside the house, Taehyung yelling for back-up which he quickly got as Suga, J-Hope and Jimin began to push Jungkook to a destination unknown. With all this chaos going on around him, he didn’t see that the same thing was happening to you, your friends and Jungkook’s friend, Namjoon and Jin pushing you towards a place you didn’t know even if this was your own house. They stopped when you arrived in the hallway leading to the kitchen, confusing you for a second but making you internally scream when Jungkook was being pushed towards you.

You wanted to flee the scene, not wanting to stay to see what your friends had planned for the two of you but your plans were foiled when you bumped into Jin’s chest, who chuckled lightly with a cute smile and turned you around as he said, “Oh, you’re not going anywhere.”

“Why do you hate me?” You asked the boy as he started pushing you towards Jungkook who was also still being pushed by his group of friends that were your friends too.

“I don’t,” Jin chuckled again, still pushing you closer and closer towards the boy you developed a crush on the first second you saw him walking in the hallways, smiling brightly as he did a little dance move to the music blaring into his ears from the headphones over his ears before he happily walked off to his class, making you wonder who he was and if you were going to see him again. “I love you and that’s why I’m doing this for you: out of love.”

He stopped pushing you as Jungkook stood not even a meter away from you, a shocked facial expression spread across his face as to how close you two were to each other before he cracked a nervous smile, unknowingly swallowing a nervous lump in his throat as he watched the scene unfolded before his very eyes.

“Look guys, we both know that you’re like, crazy in love with each other,” Suga explained with no facial expression as usual, his statement causing yours and Jungkook’s cheeks to flush a pink color.

“But too chicken to admit to each other.” Taehyung interjected loudly, still a bit tipsy from the alcohol someone managed to slip into whatever ever non-alcoholic beverage served at the party. 

Thank you, Taehyung,” Suga commented, not really meaning what he said as he gave the drunk boy a glare that Taehyung didn’t notice at all. “Anyways, we know you guys are in love with each other and too scared to admit to one another and it’s sad and annoying as hell to watch you guys think the other person doesn’t feel the same way. Now, as loyal and amazing friends, we’ve figured out a plan to get you guys together.”

“And that is?” Jungkook spoke for the first time since this incident while you still remained frozen, not believing the reality of the situation that was for you, only getting worse and getting worse as the painful and agonizing seconds went by.

Look up!” Jimin yelled out of patience, his yell only meant out of pure love for the two of you as you two dared to look above you and gaze upon the significant mistletoe tied to the ceiling exactly right underneath your heads.

It was awkward for a while, the both of you not knowing what to do while your friends had just watched you go ahead and make the only decision which was to kiss since there was no escaping the situation at hand. That was until your eyes landed back on Jungkook, seeing the nervous smile that once decorated his face to be replaced with one that you rarely saw. He playfully winked towards you, your cheeks immediately flushing a pink color and feelings like hot rocks were pressed right against them before Jungkook cupped both of your cheeks with his warm hands and pressed his lips against yours. 

Your lips remained frozen against his, the reality of the situation not making any sense to you and not registering at all but you quickly figured that maybe this was the last time you’d ever get the opportunity to kiss Jungkook ever again and went for it, closing your eyes and kissing the boy you loved. Your hands gently gripped his arms as your lips moved together slowly and passionately, all the love you hid from one another exposing itself in that moment - in that one kiss.

Even if you didn’t want the moment to end, the moment losing the magic within it and losing the feeling of his lips against yours, you two managed to pull each other’s lips away from one another, hearing the loud cheers and claps from your friends that were more than proud of themselves for setting this whole bulletproof plan up.

“Merry Christmas,” Jungkook stated happily with truly happy smile spread across his face that made your heart flutter in your chest and you instantly smile because of how precious he looked when he was happy, “Jagiya.”

You smiled at the petname he already had for you, him going back in for another kiss while your friends cheered you two new lovers on as you kissed underneath the mistletoe.
